Ti.2 following details respecting the death of Prince .V'r.t'Kfi, I'irsr interpreter to the Porte, are given in a private IcUer from Constantinople: The Austrian Inter-in:ncio was, 0:1 ihe day of that event, in conference with the litis Lifeii !i ; IHnce Morusi was present, .suddenly two captdej-huchi enter d, who requested Morusi to go out with them, pretending that some person desired to .speak with him. He accordingly withdrew, and the Internuncio remained with the Reis Erlbndi. Tired with waiting for the return of the Interpreter, the Internuncio retired, and saw at the gate of the Palace the corpse of Morusi, with whom he had been conversing a few minutes before, lung on the ground with the head off. Accounts of a very gratifying nature to the friends of humanity have been received at Copenhagen, from Chris-tianburgh, the principal of the Danish Settlements on the coast of Guinea. It appears that Major Staffeus, the Military Commandant of that station, has recently had occasion to put in force, in a very marked manner, the rigorous orders lie ha; received from his Government, to prevent every sort of traffic in slaves. A Portuguese slave-vessel, supported by another vessel of the same class, but well armed, made its appearance before Therama, a town tinder Danish sovereignly, with the intention of making some purchases there of slaves. Major Staffens immediately occupied the place with one thousand men, and made the Portuguese Captain, and a part of his crew, prisoners. The Major has sent them to Sierra Leone for trial. We are sorry to add that two Jinglishmen were seized at the same time, for participating in the diabolical traffic; they have been delivered to the Commander of the English Fort of Saint James, and will, it is said, be sent to London to be tried. The Chief of the town is supposed to have had a secret understanding with the Slave-Merchants. The vessel which accompanied the Portuguese trader, and which is said to have been Dutch, effected its escape. We have been favoured with the following extract of a letter, dated Valparaiso, March 12, 1S21 : Arrived here, the Edward Ellice, Heath ; the Lord Suffield, Brown; and the Indian, Crozierj on the 1st inst. prizes to Lord Cochrane, for attempting to enter Callao. The Indian, on her passage to this port, fell in with a whale boat, in which were two men and a boy, who had been 89 days in her when the Indian picked them up; they belonged to the North American brig Essex, Captain Pollard, a whaler. The' cause of their taking to the boats was a very singular one ; an immense sperm-whale struck the ship on the starboard bow, and before they iiad recovered from the consternation into which they were thrown, the whale-struck her a second time, and so effectually, as to completely stave her, and she filled fast ; in this situation they had recourse to their boats; the unfortunate crew consisted of 20, and divided themselves in three boats. That which was brought, here separated from their companions in a squall, and had six hands in her when she left the ship; one had been left on a barren Island, at his own request, and two had died before the Indian saw them ; the first they threw overboard, but the second they were obliged to eat; they are recovering fast, and want for nothing, as very liberal subscriptions have been made for them. Captain Laughton, I am happy to say, is considerably better; he is now able to come on shore. The Macedonian United States' frigate, Captain Downs (the same that was taken from the English during the last war, arrived here from Lima on the 4th instant. Trade is not so good here as it was twelve months since, as the markets are overstocked with English, American, French, and India goods, and speculation is suspended, waiting for the fall of Lima." We are concerned to learn that the Countess Fiuwilliam is seriously indisposed at Milton, Northamtonshire. The Report of a Comiiiiitec of the Common Council, on the state of the Special Jury List of the City of London, throws creat light on the svstem of Special Juries, and makes it J10 longer a wonder .Ay the tone of their decision in political j mattei- can gene'-. ilv lie so nicely calculated upon. It appears, I by the H-port, that the Special Jurymen area very select and well-trained body ; that they are a small virtual representation of the citizens in London sitting on the liberty and property of their fellow-subjects, without any other claim for su doing except the writs of summons thev are in the habit of receiving from the Secondaries' Office. Of the persons serving on Special Juries, the greater number are not householders in the City of London, and therei .,. e not qualified to serve in the City even as common Jurymen ; and that of those who are householders, only eighteen were merchants. Now, it is known to every one acquainted with the practice of the Nisi Prius Courts in London, that the fcpecial Jurymen are all called merchants; that it is on the pretence that Juries of merchants, exclusively, are necessary to try certain cases, that Special Juries are summoned ; yet we see, that of the persons returned to serve 011 Special Juries in the City of London, only eighteen arc merchants, except those who are not bv law qualified to sit on any Juries in the superior Courts within the City. It will be seen, too, that in this great City only 1S5 have been found fit for these Special Juries, of whom in a tinmbar of Sittings 274 only were summoned j and that the mass of the business was done by less than 100 persons' With such a body as this, so small and necessarily so well-known, tkepower in the hands of the Waster of the Crowu-OHice is, unlimited. If he do not on every occasion pack such a Jury as shall convict whatever it may please His Majesty's Administration to have convicted, the thanks are due to bis virtue, not to the nature of the system. The mode of appointing a Jury in a Ciown case is this: the Master of the Crown-Office, an officer of the Court of King's Uetich, orders the Special Jury Book to he brought on a certain day to tho Crown-Ofiice he there, in the presence of the prosecutor and the defendant, or their agents, takes out forty-eight names from the hook. He claims the right, and that right has been supported by the Court of King's Bench, of choosing the names as he likes of omitting any name, without assitrning a reason or of inserting any other name, without assigning a rwasun. " If selection be packing," said a Judge of tlie Court of King's Bench, " the Master has a right to jpack." It is true that the Master generally professes to choose them indilfcruitly from certain parts of the book, only omitting those against whom there are particular objections which objections, however, he does not consider himself bound to state. But, whatever upjicarancc there, may be of the absence of selection, or packing, it is evident that it may be only opcurarwc ; for the .Master most he as well aiquainted with the leaves of the book, as the .Secretary of the Treasury is with the benches of tile Mouse of Commom. 1 .'e must know vt here his men are to be found: he can put his pen on them at once; and if every .Special Jury that sits on a Crown case be not most effectually packed, the thanks, we say, are due 10 the virtue of the Master. If by chance, or f-a- tin: sake of keeping up appearances, the iM.-e.ter sluaild'k't tin names u' a few independent men creep in, thev may easily be g:t rid of, for there is yet another stage in the process. The list ol' iorty-t ;g!u, which is first chosen, is reduced to t'.vomy-foii.' ; orieh y;ar:y striking off twelve names. So that tho Master can. wilhout deroiiatieii from the perfectness of bis selection or parking (" if selection bo packing"), admit twelve independent men into bis List of forty-eight; confident, that from the perfect accuracy v. ith which The characters of all the persons qualified to serve mi Special Juries are known to the O'own Lawyers, those who are likely to be guilty of obstinacy v. ill not be ludered to rfiittin on t'.e reduced li':. Of these iv.enty-four, the first twelve on the List are empanelled to try the cause, and if twelve do not attend, the number is made up uut oi the common Jury jjis- With such a svstcn. as tlii,, no doubt, the jjrii -scree : Asso- j iation calculated upon working cleverly. No wonder t lis! their tool was so angrv the other day that the whole o! the Specui. jurymen did not. attend on their first trial ; or that lie was still more aucry when it turned out that one. ol the sacred hand ot Special Jurymen, had been guilty of " obstinacy.

So that the minority of the Jury were in favour of a virtual acquittal, and no very small minority in favour of an absolute one.-1 rtwelhr. The Courier, after being goaded on by The Times, referring to the .statement of The Durham Chronicle, that the Government was twice offered to Earl Grey, at the commencement and middle of the prosecution against the .ueek, with but one condition-that he would carry on the proceedings then pending." The Courier says, " there is so much probability m this statement, that we do not think y, e shall run any risk of rendering it credible, by declining to give it a formal contradiction. The Courh- stives its reason why such a contradiction is unnecessary" mined as Earl Grey was upon that question, and actio as he M during the wholeln,,uiry, we cannot conceive any t!i1,Lnot;e exquisitely absurd, not to say insulting, than a pro-po'sMn ft. Sim to accept office upon the condition of doing himself what he so vehemently condemned in others. Now there is here a confusion of time, which takes away the whole force of the argument on which The. Courier affirms the improbability of the story in The Durham Oiromcle. The Ihir-lmm Chronicle savs that two offers were made-" at the commencement and middleof theproceedings." Of this specification of time The Courier, with its paltry artifice, takes no notice. Nothin" is better in the recollection ot all political readers, that at the commencement "f the proceed iturs against, the Queen, Earl Grev, with the great boriv of the Whi.t Lords, was far from beiiiL' decided against am prosecution.- On the merits of the case, as far as thev were aif'cted bv the evidence, he could have no knowledge ; and his objections were chiefly against, the form (ifprocerdiiiirtaken.whichhedeemedtitifiiraiidtinconstitutioiial. There would not, therefore, have been any thing absurd u. n offer t" Earl Grey, of the kind asserted in 5TV Durham Oiromcle, at the commencement of the prorecdinjr-. We see, by referring to the debates of the day, thai "hen the .Message was first, brought from the King to the i louse of Lords, and when notice was given by the Earl of Liverpool of a mixtion for a Secret Coiumiitee, 'not a word was said by any other Peer. At the two snnse.juent stages of the proceedings, some observations were made bv Lords Holland and Lcmsdown, on ihe objectionable course of proceeding adopted, but Karl Grey made no observations. There was nothing, therefore, evident at that stage of the proceedings to make the story of a proposal to Earl Grey absurd. Now, as the proposal said to be made at the middle of the proceedings, bv which we presume must be meant either after the Report of the Secret Committee was made, or after tho evidence against the Queen had been adduced. " We own it does appear 'o us strange, that at either of these stages, after the proceedings had assumed the appearanceof futility and injustice which belonged to them, the King should have thought that any person would take them up, whose politics! existence had not been staked on them. liut yet it seems by no means impossible that the King's mind might have been so far warped by his passions, that he might have thought that the evidence adduced hid made an impression upon .ithers against the Queen. If we can imagine that the King could have had such an idea, he might on the strength of it have made a second overture to Earl Grey. We bnve been 'only reasoning on the probabilities of the case, which certainly do not relieve The Courier from the task of giving " a formal contradiction," if it has it in its power to do so. Whether such an offer was or was not made, is of course of some interest to the adherents of the Ministry. But the story is more imnortant in another point of view. With the mere possibility of such offers as ibis, and others just as attractive, being made, and accepted bv Members of the I luuse of Lords, what a pretty idea do we get of its exceeding fitness to try with impartiality the case on which it undertook to decide? Traveller. When the Magistrates of Newcastle, on the Coronation clay, drank His Majesty's health publicly on the Sand-hill, some hissed, and others laughed, but the great body of the people remained stubbornly silent; nor was there a single cry heard of " the King," from any individual amongst the many thousands that crowded the streets. It is the more necessary to notice this circumstance, as the Newcastle newspapers have passed it over in silence, for it is bv suppressing such truths that evil coun cillors are enabled to deceive Kings until some sudden and terrible convulsion ensues. The Mayor of Newcastle, we hear, had to endure ibe mortification of seventy disappointments at the Mansiui.-iiou.M grand Coronation dinner; that number of Gentlemen, though invited, having declined to aft end. Durham Chronicle. " A Palace fur the King. It is quite obvious, that there is in Dublin no suitable place of residence for His Majesty, were he often to visit this part of the United Kingdom. Now, would not the providing of a Palace a magnificent Palace, for His Majesty, to be erected in the City of Dublin, afford a favourable opportunity to all classes to mark their sense of His Majesty's condescension in honouring our City with his presence ? Would not the providing of such a place of residence at (he expense of the Citizens of Dublin, for His Majesty's use, and that of the other branches of the Royal Family, offer an additional inducement to His Majesty and the Royal Family to repeat his or their visits? We shall content "ourselves this day with alluding thus slightly to this interesting subject, which, we are sure, would be embraced by all with enthusiasm, were it properly taken up." Dublin Evening Post', J. Clements, a master chimney-sweep, in Chapel-place, Coram-street, was brought before the Magistrate, at Bow-street, charged with ill-treating his apprentice, a boy of only eleven years old. The little fellow, when desired to state the nature of the ill-treatment, buraJ into tears, and said" Why, Sir, he's always a whopping on roe ; and Missis and Ann's always a whopping on me too. They takes me down in the cellar, and whops me over the legs with a enne till I can't stand hardly." The mother of the child, and several persons who live in the neighbourhood, corroborated the boy's account. The master accused the boy of idleness, and running away from his ' profession ; " but he denied having corrected him improperly. He drew forth from a pocket curiously contrived for the purpose, a birch rod, which, he declared, was the only instrument of correction he had ever used. He also inveighed in strong terms against the ingrati tude of the mother and son, in bringing this suit against him, after he had " kindly consented to let the child learn the religion of a Roman Catholic ! " and, finally, he declared it was nothing but a conspiracy to rob him of an apprentice, now he had had the trouble of teaching him " a decent profession, by which he would be able to get his bread like a Gentleman.'" Sir Robert Baker had no loubt the apprentice was an idle lad, and deserved the correclion h'e' had received ; but as it was not likely they X , ' , , . ' , would ever agree after what had taken place, he would recommend that the indentures should ue cancelled ; ana, after some demur on the part of the master, they were cancelled accordingly.

I his is a measure of considerable importance to the mercantile world, and will,' it is supposed, materially affect the trade of the Hanseatic towns, as much of the trade which is now carried on at those ports, will probably be transferred to the ports of Holland.

His Mi.jvsry arrived here this afternoon at halt-past live in nis travelling carnage, accom panied by Lord Graves, and Mr. atson, 11k Mi "jesfy's Private Secretary, escorted by a party of the loth Hir every preparation had previously tiecn mane to receive His Majesty in this garrison with ali the paradcpossiblc; the streets were lined witii troops, and the naval and military officers in their dress uniforms and regimentals waited his arrival. On his reaching the outer barrier a salute was fired from the bastions, and Lieu tenant-Genera! Sir George Cooke, K. 0. B. attended by all his staff; presented the kevs of the garrison, which were graciously accepted and' returned, ttk Majesty rode slowly down the streets, to the wtiter-sid'e, through the lines of soldiers, who presented arms; on his reaching the point of embarkation he alighted, and was received by Admiral Sir J. Hawkins Whitshed, K. C. B. and the captains of the squadron the Honourable Sir C. Paget handed-His Majesty into the Royal haree, and on the standard being hoisted the squadron fired' a Royal salute, as well as the platform ; in a few minutes he reached the Royal George yacht, which had for his better convenience been brought into the harbour. On the yacht's hoisting the standard, a second salute was fired by the squadron, and the Commanding ships in the port were severally presented, and His Majesty retired to dress for dinner. As the wind is westerly, and blows rather fresh, the yacht will remain in harbour for thetiight, and will go to Spithead early in the morning. His Majesty looks uncommonly well,and performed the journey in sbven hours from London ; he appeared highly gratified with the cheers with which he was greeted. The troops in attendance were, the Royal Sappers and Miners, the Royal Artillery, the Royal Marine Artillery, the 10th and 15th Regiments, the Royal Marines, and the Postdown Yeomanry Cavalry ; Sir Edmund Nagle, Sir Hilgrove Turner, and Sir Win. Keppel, form part of the Royal 'aquatic party, which will proceed on its voyage to-morrow, if the wind is at all favourable; if not, they will remain between this place and Cowes. Wednesday, nine o'clock. The Royal ' yacht left the harbour for Cowcs at half-past- eight o'clock, amid a Royal salute from the Platform Battery and Fort Monck-ton. The squadron are now firing, as His Majesty is just passing through them. The gay bells of the town are ringing, and the beach is crowded with spectators. Act of Grace. The Lords of the Treasury have officially announced to the Revenue Boards in England, Ireland, and Scotland,.that in consequence of His Majesty's Coronation, the release of prisoners confined for penalties for breaches of the laws of the Revenue, is to take place under certain regulations, and with as little delay as circumstances will permit. Retrenchment. Very considerable reductions in the Military Department are actually in progress; and .several others are talked of with much confidence. The office of Commander of the Forces in Ireland is to cease, as also the offices of Adjutant-General and Quartermaster-General, we understand. The regiments of Infantrv are to be reduced in number and in establishment, individually, as are also the regiments of Heavy and Light Cavalry. The second Field-Officers of the same rank are to be placed on half-pay. These, and other reductions which 'have been for some time the subject of conversation in the military circles, will cause a considerable saving 111 the public expenditure. Dublin Correspondent. Wednesday last, commenced at Manchester the seventy- eighth annual conference of the Wesleyan Methodists. The Rev. G. Marsden was chosen President ; and the Rev. R. Newton, Secretary. About 500 Preachers are said to have been present. Mr. Green who ascended m an Ju cauoon, on me Coronation day, made another ascent, on Wednesday, from the Belvidere tea-gardens, Pentotivtlle. Ihe preca rious vehicle made its aerial progress in majestic style, and, in about half an hour, descended at Barking, wnere tne adventurous traveller was most hospitably received. Mr. Thomas Moore. The following paragraph appeared in The Courier of Wednesday night : One of the Paris Journals calls the poet Thomas Moore, Sir Thomas Moore. Upon this blunder The Times remarks : "We are ready to allow that Mr. Moore, both on the score of talents and high character, has a better claim to such a title than many a name in the catalogue of Knights ; but we believe there is a staunch inflexibility about his principles which has no very natural tendency to such an, honour, unless Apollo were to institute an Order of Knighthood, and then'he would be a Grand Cross." Upon this insinuation we would offer a few remarks. Mr. Moore has not, we will venture to say, any admirers of his genius more sincere than ourselves, when he exerts it, as genius always should be exerted, for the benefit of society. But when he prostitutes his greai talents, and renders them subservient to the malignity of a faction, by lampooning his Sovereign, he must surely not complain if lie" find the applause of that faction liis only reward. His present Majesty is distinguished for his own just taste in literature, and for his munificent patronage of it ; but he must be insensible alike to theduties of a Prince and the feelings of a Gentleman, if he could sloop to reward one who, having been admitted to the honour of his society, made no better use of that privilege, than to collect materials for satire and ribaldry. In private life, the hospitality of the table is regarded as a sanctuary which no" one violates who hopes to estape reproach. In public life, a different code of morals prevails, wc suppose, which The Times 'calls "a staunch inflexibility of urinctplc." , ' This is the first" time, we believe, that any writer has ever dared to impeach the honour of Mr. Moore. In the present case, however, we know not whether most to admire the boldness of The Courier, or the prudeuce with which he has chosen his time for exhibiting it. It is obvious, that the residence of Mr. Moore m a foreign country, renders the task of attempting to stab hts reputation 'comparatively safe, whatever may be thought of the gentlemanly feeling of the person who can avail himself of such an advantage. Mr. Mooro is here said to have been admitted to the honour of the King's society : to have made no better use of that privilege than to collect materials for satire and ribaldry, and to have violated the hospitality of the Roy al table. All those who have ever had the honour of Sir. Moore's friendship or acquaintance know that he is utterly incapable of any departure from what the nicest sense of honour would prescribe, lie 'never violated tne Hospitality of the Royal table, nor of any other table whatever. We are confident, too, that Mr. Moore will never be chargeti with any deviation from honour, by the party who can alone with propriety urge such a charge. With the relations which may have subsisted between Mr. Moore and His Majesty, or the causes which may have influenced them in their conduct to each other, The Courier can be but very imperfectly acquainted ; and the possession of a very small portion of delicacy would have taught him to ingratiate himself with power by the selection of almost any other subject in preference. How far Mr. Moore would Consider a Grand Cross in the light of an honour, is a question which he is best able to decide for himself, and into which we are not called on to enter. Certain we are that no honour can add to the estimation and regard in which he is held by all who are acquainted with his character, or to the general admiration of his genius. The King lias been, graciously pleased to revive the old baronetage of the Astleys ofPattefshull, granted by King Charles the Second, in the year 1GC2, to Sir Richard Astley,, Knight, (whdi at his own expense raised a body of horse in support of the Royal cause) in the person of the worthy Member for Wilts, Mr. Astley, now Sir John Dujdale Asfley, Baronet, the representative of that very ancient and honourable family, 'BARKER'S " GRAND -HISTORICAL PICTURE THE OP THE QSs IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS, 1 Will positwehj close on Wednesday, August Sth Admittance Is. descriptive Catalogues ey. - COIfcOIw JLTEOrf TAHT.w ROBERT JAMES, Cabinet-Maker i Uphold n BItOADME A D, most respectful! v acnuaim ,t v S nentrv, and tie In habitant nf TW,i rnr,, i " "uin arter constant application and the most indefatigable ei,-many years, he has at lenstth hrought to perfection L i,,"'01 manufacture of POLVA -i T'; i ':s Wfinn J n"ii of .,iLi, ,,u isrmiv ),,.,, iteu m pronouncico- 1 ' "9 beautiful than anv Won,' ti,,t 1, w,,n i '.? 0 ' mo.. a,...,,... . ...i,:u u r r-."
