A tremendous thunder storm visited several parts of Shropshire last week. In Shrewsbury the thunder was loud and frequent and in ue vicinity of the Wrekin three cows were killed. Guildhall Yesterday morning a young lady, who has for some time cohabited with a young gentleman of the name of Watson, called on Mr. Gaus-sen, a gentleman residing in Paper-buildings, in the Inner Temple.
Mr. Watson is a natural son of the father of Mr. Gaussen, to whom his connection with the young lady in question had given great uneasiness. He had frequently remonstrated with him on the impropriety of its continuance, and recommended diat he should either marry her, or break off all further intercourse. This coming to her knowledge, she came to Mr.
Gaussen to upbraid him, ascribing to such advice her desertion by Mr. Watson. Mr. Gaussen, who had never before seen her, did not hesitate to admit his having so advised Mr. Watson, and repeated'his recommendation and the grounds on which he urged either marriage or separation.
On this she became gready enraged, and producing a pair of pocket pistols, threatened to shoot him. Air. G. darted his hand across the table and grasped her right wrist the pistol immediately went off. Getting hold of her other hand, he then pinioned her against the bookcase, on which that in her left hand was also fired.
Mr. Gaussen observed interrogatively, that the pistols were not loaded to which she replied, pointing to a ball lying at her foot but they were. It appears, however, more than doubtful if they were loaded with ball, no mark appearing on any part of die room, nor any ball being found but that which appears to have been dropped on the carpet, close to where she was standing when held by Mr. Gaussen against the bookcase. Mr.
Gaussen is of opinion that the object of producing and firing the pistols was intimidation. In the struggle he grazed his fingers against the flint, as he supposes, for the slight scratch, the only injury he sustained, could not have been occasioned by a bullet; and it is scarcely possible that a pistol loaded with ball could have been fired withdut' some consequent mark'ori th'e wall or furniture in the room. After Mr. Gaussen had secured her hands, she exclaimed Your cruelty has been my ruin if you had not given the advice' you did, I should never have been deserted." An officer was called in, and the young lady was taken in her carriage to Guildhall. The pistols had been brought in a handsomej-ed morocco case, lined with purple velvet, marked with the initials A.
at the top. In the case was a powder horn filled with superfine powder, balls, screw, On Mr. G. securing the lady he seated her in a chair, and-placed the two pistols on the table however, she had the adroitness to conceal them unobserved by Mr. G.
and the but they were afterwards found in her reticule The lady being brought before Mr. Alderman Christopher Smith, Mr. Gaussen related the case as above stated he was of opinion the lady had no serious intention to injure him, and in comparing the ball with the mouth of the pistol, it was found too large to have been admitted. Mr. G.
wished the business to dropi and the Magistrate accordingly discharged the lady. Worship-street On Saturday Ann Cohen, an interesting looking female of the Jewish persuasion, was brought before R. Bevill, Esq. charged with stealing a stuff gown, value 2s. 6d.
the property of Martha and Ambrose Bradley, pawnbrokers, in Brown's-lane, Spitalfields. Martin Sutton, the shopman, proved that on Friday night, about half-past seven o'clock, the prisoner came into their shop, and pledged a gown for 2s. 6d. and when his attention appeared to be engaged with other customers she took another gown off the nail and walked out of the shop with it under her arm He pursued her and brought her back. The prisoner did not deny the charge, but said she was driven to commit the act by the most urgent distress She was taken to the lock-up room behind the Office, where she was left alone, and the witnesses went up stairs to have their depositions taken.
The depositions were soon concluded, and an officer was sent to bring tlie prisoner, in order that they might be read over in her presence. Accordingly Kennedy, the police officer, proceeded to the lock-up room, and, on opening the door, a dreadful scene was exhibited. The poor woman was lying on the floor, with a half-handkerehief put twice round her neck, with the ends pulled with her hands, which seemed nerved in the agonies of death. Her face was swollen and as black as ink, and the blood was issuing from her nose and mouth. Kennedy yery promptly, her from the folds of her handkerchief, which force had drawn as tight as a cord, but the signs of life had fled, and it was some time before she breathed.
A surgeon was sent for, who bled her, and, after bleeding some time, she spoke in a soft and melancholy tone, My poor babes and after a pause each time, My joys My poor babes let megotomypoorbabes Where am I "0 my babes!" Mr. Bevill ordered every attention to the wretched woman. A bed was provided in an adjoining public house, two females were engaged to attend her, and the surgeon was unremitting in his efforts to restore her. On taking her into the public house another most extraordinary scene was presented. There were three respectable women, who were waiting in the parlour, respecting some assault warrant at the office, and on seeing the woman with her big swollen and black face, and having heard that she had strangled herself, it had such an effect that they all three went immediately into hysteric fits.
The confusion which ensued, their shrieks, the struggle of persons to hold them in the presence of this victim of despair, presented a scene which may better be imagined than described. She had before refused to give her place of residence, but she afterwards said her maiden name was Ann Coheny but her husband's name was Joseph Simons, and that she lived in Arrow-alley, Petticoat-lane. Mine," she added, is a wretched home, but it contains my poor babes." Joshua Armstrong, the officer, was dispatched to Arrow-alley, and on his return stated, that on entering tho wretched habitation he found a man and three children almost naked, and in a state of starvation, sitting on a basket leaning over the dying embers of a miserable fire. When," said the officer to the man, did you see your wife last I have not seen her since last night;" and pointing to his forehead, as if intimating she was not always in her right senses, I am afraid something has happened to her." Armstrong asked if she went out with money Money," said the poor man, none, look a't our distress and he cast his sunken eyes around the room. The man was then conducted to the public house, and was introduced into the room where lay reclined on a bed the partner of his woe.
He looked at her and looked again; he did not know her, and it was no wonder; the pretty sparkling dark eye, and the interesting small featured countenance of his wife, were noimore. Her face was still swollen to a great size and black, and her eyes seemed bursting from the sockets which contained them. The husband exclaimed, Is that my wife The poor woman at first opened her eyes, and cast on her hus-band a melancholy look. She endeavoured to speak, but her feelings barred her utterance, and she closed her eyes and sank into a swoon. We understand this family have seen better days, and had left them, some time ago, 500.
but through misfortune, and. chiefly that of one undutiful son, they have run through it all, and the mother was brought to the brink of destruction. Towards the evening she became better, and by Mr. Bevill's humane directions, she was removed to the London Hospital. It seems she was pregnant, and there is still some doubt of her recovery.
It is almost unnecessary to add, after detailing the benevolence and humanity which were excited in this poor woman's behalf, that the prosecution was abandoned by all parties.

Martial. Life is only Life, when blest with Health." finest System of Ethics is to confine JL within due bounds, and thus to regulate the Passions unrestrained, and insubordinate, they impetuously destroy those barriers which Religion and Morality have made sacred to curb but not annihilate them, appears the lesson of prudence, best calculated to limit their effervescence. Every disorganization of the human frame requires great medical knowledge to remedy, and the public welfare is promoted when professional men (disregarding the suggestions of the envious and interested) devote their studies to the treatment of diose complaints generated by imprudence, and the ebullition of at an unguarded moment. The strengthsbf a nation consists in the health of the People but it is melancholy to reflect on the daily sacrifice to the ignorance of unfeeling empyricism and to counteract, as far as possible, its further ravages, we offer to suffering humanity the result of our own experience in the various diseases of Debility. The unwary victim of solitary vice (early acquired at school, before reason has asserted her right ovsr the mind) will, in contemplating his powerless state, become susceptible of enlivening sensations, in knowing that the most complicated state of exhaustion may be roused into manly energy Intense study immoderate anxiety longresidence in tropical climes, and many other causes, will frequently derange the Nervous System in such cases we can hold out an assurance of re-animation, by medicines which have long answered the sanguine hopes of Patients of both Sexes.
That bane to human happiness, LUES VENEREA, can now be treated fearlessly, the improved state of Medical Science having divested its antidote of those distressing properties that so long rendered its exhibition uncertain and harassing. We 'best explain our method by observing to Patients labouring under this malady, that a few days only are required for the removal of early symptoms; that the most inveterate case will yield to our remedies within a and that in a person who only suspects himself injured, the disease may be prevented altogether from appearing; a similar remark applies to many other derangements of the generative system, as weakness, ulcerations, especially stric tures, obstinate cases of which are daily removed without the use of caustic or stimulants. Some peculiarities incidental to the softer sex have not escaped our attention in which mildness, combined with efficacy, has superceded the means usually adopted. In fine, our system is unique, peculiarly energetic, and eminently successful. Educated in this our native city schooled in our professional attainments by its splendid Medical Characters and having been able, personally, to compare with admiration the British Surgical practice with the Continental, our pretentions to superiority (in a branch we have selected) are matured by rience, which is evinced by the daily applications we receive, even from distant countries.
Daily attendance is given for personal consultation and letters from the country are immediately answered; these must'eontain a remittance for Advice and Medicine, which can be forwarded to any part of the world, however distant. GOSS and Co. M. R. C.

They conclude, naturally enough, that the Monarch who, to his manifest danger, persecutes all the instruments and measures of the Constitutional Government at home, will not scruple to violate the engagements of 'that Government to foreigners, when his doing so will occasion no sacrifice hut of honour, (to whith he is indifferent) and will be attended with some present convenience. The unlucky Bond holders have, as a last resource in their distress, adopted the strange expedient of applying to the British Government to enforce their claims. Despair is, in this case, however, as in most others, a delusive counsellor the British Government clearly cannot interfere in the matter. The Bond-holders can scarcely expect that the nation will embark in a war for their particular interests; and Ferdinand too certainly belongs to that class of persons from whom justice can he obtained only by force. The present perplexity of the Spanish Bond-holders seems to have been foreseen by the late Marquis of Londonderry, when he declared that the Government would never intercede with a Foreign Government on behalf of its British creditors.
The Etoile of Monday' contains a dispatch from the military commandant at Cordova, which assigns as the ground' of Ballasterbs' disgrace the disseminatiou by that General of the King's proclamation of the 30 th ult. among his soldiers. The French Papers furnish various rumours upon the subject of the affronts and injuries offered to Ballasteros. Perhaps not the least probable is that which describes his army as in a state of mutiny against the tyranny of Ferdinand. Such an event might very seriously affect the French.
JMorillo and O'Donel, who are placed in exactly the same circumstances of disfavour and danger as Ballasteros, are at the head of 20,000 men Lopez Banos, who has never submitted, has SOOO men in Estremadura and Mina still keeps the field in Catalonia. Several of the Grandees have been exiled from Madrid and some, it is expected, will be banished the kingdom. A contribution of about has been demanded from the impoverished City of Madrid. San Miguel, the late Minister of the Cortes, has been wounded in an action with Lauriston's division in Catalonia, and has fallen into the hands of the French. 10.
Private Correspondence. The dawn of peace and the happiness of Spain will not last long. The decrees of the King, of the 1st and 4th of this month, have spread a general consternation in Madrid among all classes, not excepting the Monks and the Royalists. But this is not all: already they are preparing buildings for the Inquisition, and more Royal Decrees are expected, which, it is said, will be still more rigorous, amongst which will be one for a forced contribution of twenty millions of reals on the town of Madrid, and the exile of a great number of Nobles, with a confiscation of their property. In short, I cannot state to you the deplorable situation in which we are plunged by the perfidious advisers to our Monarch and this at a moment when Lopez Banos has still 6000 men in Estremadura, and Morillo exercises a great influence in Gali-cia, while Mina still remains firm in Catalonia.
Is it possible they can put in force such decrees and arrests The occupation of Saint Sebastian, Pampcluna, and Cadiz, by the French armv, is another cause of discontent on the part of tlie Royalists. It is also notorious that, the King is not very intimate with the Prince Generalissimo, who wishes the King to fulfil his promises, and to throw a veil over what has passed. But Ferdinand remains obstinate, and wishes to be absolute, and to govern according to his pleasure. It is estimated that, according to the Decree of the 4th, 15,000 persons will be obliged to leave Madrid, and who are the flower of the population." This morning, at an early hour, the Royal Fusileers marched out of the Foot Barracks, having received orders to proceed to Portsmouth, there to embark for Gibraltar; but these orders were soon after countermanded, and they return to Windsor. SOUTHERN EXPEDITION.
In addition to the intelligence of the safe arrival of Captain Parry from the Northern Expedition, we give the. particulars, gleaned from the country papers Our readers will participate in the satisfaction with which we state, the Fury and Ileclu discovery ships moored safely in lirassay Sound on the morning of Friday last. From', an individual who went on board we learn, that of the five deaths ported, one proceeded entirely from accident, as the deceased fell from the topmast of one of the vessels. We are happy to hear that the remainder of the crew are in good health and spirits. It is mentioned as very remarkable, that from the time the squadron left Orkney until their return, they had seen but one vessel, and that at a considerable distance, and Dutch built so that they had spoken with none.
We understand that the season was so unfavourable, that the ships were not able to penetrate so far west as during tlie last voyage and we have reason to believe that the idea of any future attempt will be considered futile. Throe such voyages as have been completed ought certainly to determine the question in one form at least, citherthat there is no north-west passage, or that no good can result from the discovery of one. The vessels were to sail from lirassay Sound with the first fair wind. Captain Parry would in all probability be landed at Peterhead. The- Heela is also expected hourly in Leith-roafls, to receive an anchor which, we understand, is preparing for her in the naval yard." We regret to learn, that a distinguished officer, who has just, returned to his country, after a long absence on a distant and perilous expedition, has experienced, since his return home, a shock more fatal to his happiness than could have been inflicted on him in the inhospitable regions from which he has just escaped.
We hear that a beautiful, lovely, and accomplished young lady, who had exchanged with the gallant officer in question a mutual pledge of unalterable attachment previous to his embarking on his dangerous enterprise, and tlie promise of an immediate and honourable union on his return, has, during his absence, forgotten the pledge she had given, and afforded reason tolielieve that the gallant Officer is no longer the favoured object of her affections. On the arrival of this distinguished officer in London, he hastened, after the first discharge of his public duty, and drove with an unaltered attachment and fond anxiety to the lady's house, in the neighbourhood of Portland-place, to pay his first attentions to the object of bis highest esteem; and receive her congratulations on his safe return. but, to bis surprise and sorrow, he found that the house had been ftn some time shut up, and that the family had quitted London and upon further inquiry he learned that some change had occurred with respect to the affections of the chief object of his solicitude, which made it advisable that he should endeavour to eradicate from his mind all recollection of her plighted faith and influence over his heart. So severe has been this shock to tlie brave officer, who could smile at the horrors and dangers of a frigid zone, that he has continued ever since this discovery in such an unhnimv state, as to seclude himself from the society of all his friends, who have in vain endeavoured to console him on the unhappy occasion. He was, however, much better last night.
He lost 20 ounces of blood yesterday, by which he was greatly relieved, and his medical attendants are now of opinion that a few days will place him entirely out of danger Evening Paper. half, belonging to the Duke of Buckingham, has been taken at a low rent, ror uie puipo1 being portioned into gardens for the use ot the poor of Aylesbury, in lieu of those they occupied by the sides of the roads. We understan that it is the intention of the Committee to divide it into 80 parcels, which they will be enabled to let at 3s. or 3s. 6d.
a-year each, subject to no other payment of any kind. To secure the parish from loss the rent is to be paid in advance. POYAIS EMIGRANTS. Mr. Prince, the Common-Councilman who has kindly taken up the case of the unfortunate emigrants to Poyais, yesterday attended upon the Lord Mayor at the Mansion House, with several others of them, to request assistance for those who lay ill, and were unable to obtain relief.
Five of them were placed at the bar. They were all, but one, young men of the decent and well-informed class of Scotch labourers. They had evidently undergone extreme suffering and illness, as their appearance was ghastly and cadaverous. The first who was called upon to state his case was a man named James Hastie. He said he had been brought up to the plough, and to agriculture gene-rally, and that he had besides learnt tlie trade of a sawyer.
II had been induced by flattering promises, which were made to him at the Poyais Land Office, at Edinburgh, to sell all he had, and leave Scotland with his wife and family for Poyais. They shewed him the beautiful picture of a town called San Josef, where they said there were 2,000 inhabitants. The Lord Mayor Well, did you find a town there Hastie answered in the Scotch dialect There were two houses or huts found belonging to two persons who were cast away. That was all the town found, but there were no They.h,ad. fled, for if they had stayed they would have been starved.
The Lord Mayor inquired in what condition the settlers arrived at that place Hastie stated that they all arrived in excellent health, excepting one or two, but that they were much affected by the bad provisions. Near the place where they landed was a dangerous bar which the boat could not get over, and they were obliged to roll their casks on shore through the water. The casks were mosdy open, and their flour, their meal, and barley were all spoiled by the salt water. He thought that the badness of the provisions from this cause greatly promoted the destructive disorders brought on by the "hot, wet, and cold" climate. The Lord Mayor inquired of what nature they found the land Hastie said the land" they found was all sand nothing but sand with underwood, of a nature which grew in those arid lands.
It was easy to clear away; but when it was cleared they found nothing but sand. The sea shore of England, which was washed by the tide every 24 hours, would, in his opinion, be just as productive as the best of the ground he saw there. They tried various sorts of Scotch seed in it, but none of them made the slightest progress and he was sure never would. This was the description of land for about 10 miles that he saw but he was informed that there was some good land about 40 miles up the river amongst the savage folk indeed he saw some glorious timber. He described the greatest annoyance they encountered in the endeavours to work in the place was from the venomous infects with which they were assailed and constantly tormented.
The chigoes," the sand flies, and the mosquitoes never left them free from pain and they could not push through a bush of underwood but at the hazard of rousing a snake or tiger cat- In every direction they worked they found venomous beasts plenty." His Lordship asked whether they met with any hostile treatment from the natives Hastie said, that when they had been there about 14 days, the Musqnito King came down, attended by some of his savage subjects, and said, That unless they swore allegiance to him, he would not permit them to stay there, and had upwards of 7000 men, whom hp would bring down to massacre the whole of the settlers. This King had been brought up at and understood English well. He was said to be fond of rum, and the people said that Sir Gregor Macgregor, once, when his Majesty was in good humour from the rum, got from him a grant of 30 miles of Poyais land. But Hastie declared, he heard his Majesty say, he did not hold the grant to be good, and that if he had known who and what Sir Gregor was, as well as he now knew him, the grant should never have been made. Never more would he have Sir Gregor's people in his dominions.
The subjects of his Majesty, when they heard Sir Gregor's name mentioned, drew their hands across their throats, cried, Yaw, yaw," and looked quite fashed" angry. The Lord Mayor And what has become of Sir Gregor Macgregor? Did you see anything of him Hastie said that Sir Gregor's agent represented that he was in Paris. Hastie here pressed his own case upon his Lordship. He had been engaged to go out by Sir Gregor himself, as one of his labourers, at 467. a vear, had lost all his savings, two of his bairns" had been carried off by the fever, and his wife now lay dangerously ill with the fever, and his remaining bairns were unwell.
The fever and the ague were upon himself even now while he was speaking to his Lordship, and he had no bread, and was quite destitute. The Lord Mayor gave him an immediate order for his and his family's reception in St. Thomas's Hospital. The next case was that of a lad named James Burgess, who said that his father was a boat-builder, and with his mother and four children went out by the persuasions of Sir Gregor Macgregor, to Poyais. Witness's father and mother sunk under the climate, and died of the fever on their way home, and he (the boy) was now left an orphan with his three sisters.
The next object was a man who had formerly been in the service of the Duke of Argyle. He was induced to embark his savings, and go out with his wife and family. He his wife, and returned in the utmost wretchedness. The Lord Mayor thought it unnecessary to inquire further into the cases. He asked a few general and all the poor creatures concurred in the account of the expedition, and of the arts used by the promoters of tlie scheme to entrap them.
They expressed their regret that they had not returned sooner, as, a little before they arrived, two vessels full of emigrants had started for the same place, and doubtless would meet with the same, or perhaps a worse fate. One of those vessels, called the Albion, had started a few weeks since from the river, and besides natives of ou board some' Lascars, and others of a saleabie colour," who, it was stated, had been induced to go out as a body for the Governor of Poyais. The other vessel, it was said, was called the Scheme." The Lord Mayor observed, I understand they are negociating another Poyais loan. Does any one know what security they offer A gentleman replied, The security of a grant of this sandy land made by a drunken chief, who denies its validity." The Lord Mayor said he never heard of a more complete humbug, and expressed his surprise at its success, which was amazing. The settlers said, that supposing the climate in the interior to be adapted to British constitutions, and that the land was good, the settlers could only exist in a strong force and combined to act, as they would have to encounter the hostility of the Mosqui-tos, a warlike tribe, or the still more powerful enmity of the Spaniards, and that it would be in vain to attempt to conciliate the good will of both powers.
Mr. Prince said, the misery of the orphans and the sick who had landed was extreme. He had witnessed it. Some humane persons had suggested a subscription for their relief, and he most heartily concurred in the proposal. The Lord Mayor agreed that the case was highly deserving of the beneficent exertions of the public, and put his name at the head of the subscriptions.
Mr. Prince, his brother, Messrs. Fry and Chapman, also subscribed, and the house of Fry and Chapman expressed their readiness to receive subscriptions. Mrs. Fry is to inquire into the state of the orphan females.
His Lordship soon after received a verbal communication from Mr. Sheriff Lawrie, who said that the Scottish Hospital hud, in consequence of the statement in the papers of Saturday, instructed him to offer a free passage home to the whole of the survivors, who had no occasion to apply to any parish, but might claim the aid of their countrymen for that purpose. The Lord Mayor said that the liberal offer would be joyfully accepted but the subscriptions for the orphans and tlie sick must not be prejudiced by it. plying it. In less than two months ins liair grew on the bald parts, and is now very thick.
The Captain is highly pleased, and has spread its fame. I assure you the demand for that article is very great I must beg of you to send me a supply without loss of time."
