Three (owns were said to be iu a state of forwardness, all on the banks of the river Perth, Freetnantle, and Guildford. The letters contain a repetition of the previous accounts, viz. the quantity of fish and fowl of the finest and notice (lie friendly manners of the natives. The couutry was in general beautifully wooded with fine timber, and abundance of good laud on each side of the mountains. Since the last dates the following vessels had arrived from London with settlers: The Lotus, Caroline, and Atwick the former had proceeded to Sydney with some of her passengers, originally destined for that place and the latter had sailed for Ceylon and London with the greater part of the letters. The weather was very delightful, and no accidents to the shipping are mentioned. The above is per Dragon, via Mauritius. Times. We cannot be surprised, therefore, if it shall have been found that many who have been vaccinated have also contracted the small-pox after it. We have the satisfaction, however, of being assured, on the most unquestionable authority, that vaccination has protected some individuals under the most dangerous exposure to contagion and that those who have been so unfortunate as to take the small-pox after it have generally passed through a mild and safe disease. We are not disposed to overrate the value of the resource, the administration of which you confide to our superintendence, by considering it as affording a certain security against the smallpox in all" cases but every year places its comparative merit in a more striking point of view; and we persevere in declaring that we believe it to be as much more prudent to vaccinate than to inoculate, as it was better to inoculate than to allow the small-pox to take its course without control.

Registrar. monopolists, are men of high mercantile honour and integrity, and some of the outside merchants who are licensed by the Hong, and who are allowed, even without licenses, to deal in inferior articles of merchandize, are respectable men. The quality of the tea which can be obtained by private merchants is said by them to be quite as good as that obtained by the company, though Mr. Aken admits the company have advantages as purchasers. Captain Hutchinson and Mr. Bates both describe Canton as a place where it is more easy to transact business than in any other part of the world. Mr. Bates says, that the house of Perkins and Co. of Canton, conducts one-half of the business of the United States, and that their establishment consists only of one clerk and a lad. The company has no other advantage than the magnitude of its operations and his (Mr. house, in the selection of goods sent out from this country, has frequently purchased on better terms than the company by six or seven per cent. He is of opinion that the opening of the trade to China would eventually be an injury to the American houses, but that the effect of competition would be to raise materially the prices of tea and other articles, and that there would necessarily be much overtrading. The result, however, would ultimately be a considerable extension of trade. He considers that the company's teas cost the country above a million and a half more than they would if bought on private contract, that is, were they sold at a fair mercantile profit, which he estimates at 25 per cent. The China trade he conceives to be capable of great extension by private enterprises, not under the company's management. Tha testimony of Mr. Deans is chiefly directed to two points that even in the case of any interruption of the trade with Europeans at Canton, a supply of tea could be obtained through the intercourse of the Chinese themselves with Java and other islands and further, that the rendering the trade with China an open and free one to British subjects, would in all probability be followed by a commercial intercourse with Japan also, which is at present a sealed country. Chinese settlers, it appears, are numerous in Java and other islands, there being about 20,000 of them in the immediate vicinity ef Batavia, where they live apart from the rest of the population, preserving their own habits and manners. Mr. Deans describes them, the better class at least, as good merchants, faithful and regular in their dealings, and acquiring in many instances large property by trade. Among the Chinese, generally, there is a growing disposition for the consumption of articles of British produce. By a statement given in by Mr. Maxwell, it appears that the Americans, on the average of the six years ending 1826-7, traded with China to the extent of ,38:2,612 more than the company. nOR a AI.

MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT Throughout the last month, the weather has been generally favourable for the occupation of agriculture, and the advantage seems to have been taken, in all parts of the country, with an eager diligence and assiduity, in order to recover the lost time occasioned by the frost. The oat and pulse crops, with few exceptions, may be said to be finished and, upon forward soils, some of them are appearing above ground. Barley, upon some good light lands, was judiciously put in early, the obstacles and press of business considered; and such lands are in good progress of culture for mangold and turnip sowing. The former is the most tender of the roots in me, and the least able to endure frost, and is generally found to succeed best from early planting. After all, the turnips prove to be less injured by the frost than had been expected, receiving greater damage from a single casual frosty night subsequently, no doubt, on account of tiie renewal of vegetation by the change of temperature. It is generally found that the rata-baga, or Swedish turnip, has been more affected by tiie frost than the common English whence, it is supposed, that foreign root, originally chosen for its presumed superior hardness as well as nourishment, Mas at length degenerated on our soil. There it not much complaint yet of a short quantity of turnips. The wlwnls, on the best lands, begin to exhibit a luxuriant and healthy appearance, thickly planted; an poor, exposed; and neglected a too targe proportion, they are bachicard, ffi, and weak, which has given rise to an opinion that a general aped crop must not be expected. This, however, trill materially depend on the nature of the coming seasons. The grasses have stood remarknbbt well and there is great expectation of a general crop. Lust year' seeds, with one or two exceptions, have failed, and the clovers are scarce and of cer bad quality. Winter tares continue, to improve. The stock of potatoes, a never-failing and moat important article of national consumption, will not onty prove sufficient, but the quality is far beyond -rpectation. Apples, two and sixpence and did we want a distinctive characteristic for the year twentfnine, it might welt be styled the apple year. It has been found difficult to obtatntiats it for seed, and the price of such has been high. Hoeing the wheats has been necessarily backward on many farms it will be totally omitted, and o'n but Jew will be efficiently performed, from the almost general foul and neglected state of the land indeed, Jarming operations, in must parts, seem to or hurried on, with more attention to getting through nt any rate, than solicitude on the score of good husbandry, to which the times are not propitious. The uccoitnts from markets and fairs, and of the general state of the country, are so various, and often contradictory, that it is by no meant easy to form, or safe to hazard, a decisive pinion yet, on a general view, there appears to be indications of a favourable change both in agricultural and muihu-Jactnring concerns. The great fairs hoc teen fully and well attended, and in some, storeoattle have gone off briskly and at improved prices, Ueep being tn limited numbers and in demand in others the old leaven has prevailed-9ast herds of store cattle and flocks of sheep, uncalled for and ufh'ojd. Fat stock has every where met with a quickerU though at reduced price. The national stotjFof cattle, as of every thing else, population included, with the almost single exception of home grown bread corn, has been indeed superabundant. Our letters from the stall feeding districts, speak of a general hesitation as to purchase, the feeders having suffered so severely in their last year's accounts. The cheese end butter trade is in a state of great depression the former especially Much wort has been sold, or rather parted with, for the sake of raiting the needful: though, according to a tingle account from a great sheep district, ome has been gol at an advance of fifty per eent.

PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS. EAST INDIA TRADE. Two reports of the evidence taken before the Committee of the House of Commons, on the question of opening the trade to India and China, have been printed. The examinations relate principally to the China trade. Evidence in favour of the present system has been given by Mr. Marjoribanks and Mr. Davis, two members of the company's factory at Canton and Mr. Davidson, who had resided there for eleven years as a private merchant, entirely independent of the company. Anongst the witnesses on the other side were Mr. Brown, merchant of Liverpool Mr. A ken, formerly captain of a trader between India and China; Captain Hutchinson, the commander of a private trader from Liverpool to Bombay and China Mr. Everett, an American commission merchant, and who has been engaged for eleven years in purchasing goods for the China market, on account of American merchants Mr. Bates, of the house of Baring, Brothers, and Co. Mr. J. Deans, and Mr. J. A. Maxwell, both of whom have been respectively engaged in trading for a number of years, in various parts of the Eastern Archipelago, but the former chiefly in. Java. Mr. Cartwright. a merchant, who formerly resided at Buenos Ayres, was also examined, to show the possibility of opening a trade between South America and China. The company's witnesses, Messrs. Marjoribanks and Davis, dwelt on the advantages which that body possesses in counteracting the attempts of the Chinese Government, and the privileged merchants of China, to levy exactions on the trade in Canton, and raise the prices of tea. They call attention also to the present stagnation of the American trade, and the small amount of the trade of all European nations, except England, with the Chinese, in spite of their freedom of trade. The Dutch have had about three or four ships in China annually within the lasffew years the French one or two small ships and the trade of the Swedes and the Danes has ceased almost entirely." There are only two trades of European nations, except the English, "deserving the name of tiades in China, viz. the Dutch and Portuguese, and these are inconsiderable." The consumption of tea of the whole civilized world, besides England," observes Mr. Davis, is about 22,000,0001 bs. while the eoosumption of England is about They contend also that the expectations of an increased con sumption in China of British manufactures are unfounded, since the woollens which they export are attended with loss, and there is no probability that even to the Americans the importation of European goods into China (about a fourth of the quantity imported by the company) have been profitable, since they have not increased them and the proportion of specie which they have introduced at Canton has been, when compared with the amount of their woollen importations, in the proportion of five or six to one. The dHB- cullies in the way of the extension of consumption, which American enterprise has not been able to overcome, are, the heavy transit duties on goods in their passage from Canton to those provinces where the demand for them would be greatest, and the fact that all the ports except Canton are hermetically sealed against foreigners. Mr. Marjoribanks and Mr. Davis also think that the quantity of tea produced for exportation in China could not be greatly increased without a deterioration in quality and they apprehend a danger of the entire stoppage of all foreign trade, from the arbitrary government of China, in the event of any change which should materially increase the present amount of smuggling. The revenue derived to the imprrial treasury from foreign trade, they state to be about two millions of dollars an amount too insignificant, as compared with the wealth of the Chinese empire, to impede the government in the execution of a plan for closing the port of Canton if any provocation should be offered to it. Mr. Davis considers the freedom of intercourse possessed by the company with the Chinese, to be a benefit and protection to the merchants of all nations resident at Canton. If the privileges of the company are put an end to, he believes that, unless judicious and energetic diplomatic arrangements preceded such a change," the British trade could not exist two seasons at Canton without interruption. The result of an open trade would be a war between England and China." The free-trade witnesses, on the other hand, adduce many facts to show tho advantages of trade which the Americans have carried on with China, and the disposition and aptitude of the Chinese for commerce. Mr. Brown said, that in the course of about nine years he had shipped, on his own account and the account of Americans, .744,000 worth of goods in American bottoms from Liverpool for Canton, and latterly these speculations have been unprofitable but the losses have been sustained altogether on the returns from China, in consequence of an excess of the supply of tea in America compared with the demand. The losses in America have not been confined to the China trade, and there is every reason to expect that the trade with China, which has amounted on au average to about seven millions of dollars imports, and seven millions Ac-ports, will become fairly profitable as it was formerly. Mr. Everett, who has dealt largely 'in the exports to America from China, believes that the consumption of British manufactures might be much increased, if the trade were opened i andi that a great portion of it would devolve on British merchants, as few foreign nations could then ss-tain a competition. The evidence of all the remaining witnesses is also totally at variance wfih what had been previously adduced respect uigihe disposition of the Chinese to trade with other nations and of course the danger of any collision resulting, is viewed in a very different light. Mr. Aken being asked whether there is as much facility in transacting business in Canton as in ports in England, replies, Yes, and a great more." The Hong merchants, who are the Lady Byron and. Mr. Moore. Lady Byron has addressed to Mr. Moore some remarks on his notices of the Life of Lord Byron. The most interesting part is that relating to the separation between his Lordship and herself; which it was inferred was attributable to undue influence. The reason assigned by Lady Byron for first leaving him, was her belief that his Lordship, in hia behaviour to her, acted under the influence of insanity; nnd she took that step, not under the persuasion of any one. She afterwards came to London, and on being satisfied that the notion of insanity was an illusion, insisted upon a separation, in doing which she acted under the advice of Sir Samuel Romilly and Dr. Lushington, who were in possession of all the Lady Byron annexes a lelter from Dr. Lushington, written last January, in which he declares his belief tbat a reconciliation was impossible; and concludes by declaring her only object to be, that of vindicating the memory of her parents from the calumny of having instigated the separation Important to Carters. If the wheels of a cart or waggon are greased with black lead and pork lard, they will travel, without further greasing, fifteen hundred miles. The bJack lead should be bought in the lump, and very finely pulverised. What is that which is black, and white, and red all over Do you give it up A Newspaper. LONDON MARKETS. Monday, April 12.

On the evening of Monday fortnight the most crowded audience ever seen in the Theatre Royal, Edinburgh, assembled to testify their esteem for Mrs. Henry Siddons, the talented and amiable widow of the son of her whose name will ever he remembered as the Queen of Tragedy." After playing in her usual able and fascinating manner, as Lady Townley in the Provoked Husband, tbe moment of "Farewell," having arrived, Mrs. Henry Siddons came forward, lex! by her brother, Mr. William Murray, aud impressively delivered the following add resf, written expressly for her by Sir Walter Scott: The carlaia drops the mimic scene is past One word remains, the saddest and tbe last A word wbicb oft in careless mood we say, When parting friends have passed a social day As oft pronounced in agony of heart, When friend- must sever, or when lovers part Or o'er the dying couch in whispers spoken, When the last tender thread is all but broken, When all that ear can list or tongue can tell, Are the faint mnurnfal accents, fare-ye-well Yet ere we part and even now a tear Bedims my eye to think our partiog near Fain would 1 speak bow deeply in my breast Will tbe remembrance of your kindness rest F.iin would I tell but words are cold nnd weak It is tbe heart, tbe heart nlone can speak. The wanderer amy rejoice to view ooce more Tbe smiliog aspect of her native shore Yet oft, in oiingled dreams of joy and pain, I ttiink she see this beauteous land again And then, as now, will fond affection truce The kindness that endeared her dwelling-place. Now, then, it must be said, though from my heart The mournful nccen-Ut scarcely will depart, Lingering, as if they feared to break some spell, II must be altered friends, kind friends, farewell One suit remains: yon will not scorn to bear, Tbe last my lips shall faher on your ear VVheu I am far, my patrons, oh be kind, To the dear relative I leave behind. He is yoar own, and like yourselves may claim A Scottish origin a Scottish name. His opening talents, let tbe truth be told, A sister in brother's cause is bold, Shall enter for yoar eve of leisure still, With eqaal nrdoor, and improving skill. And though too oft Ibe poor per former's-lot, Is but to bloom, to fade, and be' forgot, WtwM'er the mimic sceptre tbey resign A gentler destiny I feel is mine For, as the brother moves before your eyes, Some memory of tbe sister must arise; And in yoar hearts a kiod remembrance dwell, Of ber who ooce again sighs forth farewell In the delivery of this address, Mrs. Siddons was often interrupted by loud applause and at its conclusion the audience in the boxes and pit stood up, and accompanied her exit by shouts and waving of hats and handkerchiefs. YORK ASSIZES. QUACKERY. Society Apothecaries v. Wharton. S. J. This was an action agaiost tbe defendant, brought at the instance of the Society of Apothecaries, for tbe recovery of tbe penally, under tbe statute, for practicing as an apothecary at Baildon, near Bradford, witboot having been properly certificated, nod not having been in practice on tbe 1st of Aug. (815. Mr. Brougham and Mr. Colt-man appeared for tbe plaintiffs; tbe defendant did not appear either iu person or by counsel. It appeared (bat Wharton commenced bis career in life in Ibe capacity of a butcher's boy he afterwards' became coachman to tbe late Mr. Hasell, of Dale-main, Cumberland then be went into tbe service ef Mr. Parkin, of Skirsgill, as boiler from thence be went lo Pooiey-Bridge and kept no inn Iheu removed to Bradford and followed the business of wool-sorter; and finally removed to Baildon nnd commenced trade ns an apothecary. Tbe witnesses described bis habits, and acquirements, and performances amusingly. His cures were of course almost equal to Priace Hobeuiobe's. His literary skill was less recherche, though sufficiently conspicuous. Mr. Brougham put in ibe following bill of charges, which even mode Mr. Justice Park laugh, though his Lordship was evidently much shocked at Ibe enormity of tbe man's orthography "B.iilden, October, 6, 182T. "Mr. Sulclif to Henry Wharton, Dr. To Replasing your foot 2s. Od." "Mr. Sutclif Dr. Ocl. 10, 1829. To Henry Wharton To Fool replasing 2s. Od. "II- One- Botl Cof Medeslo 0 9 tioe c. oi Heueaia 9 14.

We have already said tbat there was no defence sncb deeds needing not justification. Mr. Justice Park, in summing np tbe evidence, aid it was melancholy thing to thiok that tbe lives of bi Majesty's subjects should be endangered by tbe practices of a man who was so ignorant tbat be could not spell the names of tbe nostrums be vended. Verdict for the plaintiffs. Penalty, 20; Damages, Is Costs, 40. This it probably the worst case tbe Learaed Doctor ever bad in band. MISCELLANEOUS.
