The same conditions were imposed upon Air. Smith, the present master, conditions which his lordship repeated) no patrons ought and wh'ch it waft moat improper for them, to impose The next question was, whether the imtstef could he removed upon any other ground than improper and u'on this the court was quite clear that he codld not, an therefore the Vice Chancellor wbb miite correct in directing an injunction to restrain the action of ejectment brought to recover possession of the school premises.

The only, and in this case the court feared the most material, as well as the most difficult, point was, who should pay the costs Mr. Smith hao1 acted perfectly right, a nl therefore not only must he not pay, but must be entirely indemnified. The court had also some difficulty about mnking the order for the corporation to pay themas, for aught it knew, its funds might be destined for charitable purpose. Uuder all tlie circumstances; therefore, the court would postpone making any order till alter the mas. cr had made his report.

The will is in the hand. writing of the testator, and is dated 23d Oct. 1 820, and commences as follows.1 James Smithson (son of Hugh, fitst Duke of Northumberland, and Elizabeth, heiress of the Don. irerfords, of Studley, and niece to Charles, the proud Duke of Somerset), uow residing in Bentinck-street, Cavendish. square, do, this 23d day of October, make this, my last will and testament, as follows." The testator, after having devised the whule of his property to Messrs.

Drummonds, his bankers in trust fur the purposes thereinafter named, and having desired them to place his property under the management of the Court of Chancery, bequeaths John Fttall, formerly his servant, but now in the Loudou Docks, for the affectionate regard be has shocvu to his master, and the care he has taken of his effects, and in consideration of his having done but little for him, an annuity of 1O01. to be paid quarterly the first payment to be made within three mouths after his decease. To H. H. Sailly, also formerly his servant) but now.

keeping the Hungerford Hotel in Paris, he gives the use of the different sums of money he has lent him at various times (and for which he holds his bonds or bills, undated) for five years longer should he wish it, on his paying five per cent, per annum for that time. He then bequeaths the whole of his property, absolutely, of every nature and kind whatsoever, to his nephew, the son of his brother, Lieut. Col. Chas. Louis Dickenson, for his life and after his defease, to any child or childre.i of his, legitimate or illegitimate," who may survive him, and if more than one child survive him, it is to be divided among them as their father may think proper.

Sbnuld he fail to divide it, however, he desires it may be referred to the Lord Chancellor to do so hut in the event of his dying without a child or children, or if his child or children die before he, she, or they attain the age of 21, or intestate, then the whole of the pnrperty is to devolve to John Fitall, subject to his annuity, for the security of which he means stock to lund iu this country for tike United Suite, for the purpose of founding au institution at Washington, to be called The Smithsonean Institution for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men-" COURT OF CHANCERYThis Day.

The Solicitor General read a letter from Mrs Gattie to Sir Dudley Hill, as follows "Dec 2. 1K29.

Mrs.

Corrie will give a receipt fur them, if I have applied to Lord Ban ineton, and informed him of. thin arrangement on tikis subject who, considering that as a a committee is appointed of Mr Jerris's person, which is now under consideration, children must be removed from vour house, ahuuld seem to decline any other arrancemeut.

Oatiie and Lord IWrington, the actinic infanta1 guardian and stated the entire readiness of Mm. Gattie now, heretofore, to deliver up Rich wardrobe to the guardians, or Sir Dudley Hill, by their orders but that Lord Harrington, it was understood, entirely approved of the plan in Mrs. Game's letters. The correspondence was as follows i "My Lord The Hon. Wm.

Jervis Jervis having Appointed me to preside in his house, and to superintend his household, and having committed to my Care bis infant children, I am Beeoaearily answerable for their wardrobes. Sir Dudley Hill has this flay taken these dear children, under an order frm the Lord Chancellor, to his house, during the few days which can, I Understand, only elapse before commute is appointed, hy the Master, ot Mr. Jer-vs's person, and on which event the residence of his hildren with Sir Dudley Hill is cease. I venture, therefore, with all due deference, to suggest to your Wdhip, as their guardian, that as a head nurse, and Under nurse, and a laundry maid, are almost without mplnyment here, until the children are restored, it Would be economical, that whilst your lordship sanctions their residence at Sir Dudley Hill's that clean clothes hould be taken to them three times 8 week, 'd the things they have warn, iu exchange, brought home here to be washed as thus toe laundry maid will be performing duties for which she is engaged; otherwise Mr. Jervis will be bunhened with a laundry-maid only partly mployedj and two nurses wholly unoccupied: Should, however; your lordship require me to deliver thfc eni're wardrobes of the children to you, I re-Itit-St you will have the gHodness to signify your plea-ure; and if Lord St.

Teddingtou House, Nov. 19, 1829. To the Viscount Harrington, Shrivenham, l'arringdon, Berks." Shrivenham, Nov. 22, 1829.

Madam, In answer to your letter informing me of the removal of Mr. Jervis'a children, under an order of the Court of Chancery, and also mentioning some particulars relating to the linen, wardrobes, beg to inform you thai it is my intention to be in London to-morrow. I have written an answer to a letter I received a few day ago from Miss Jervis; and am afraid, from one I received from her this mm n-'nJT. that my answer to her former lener has ever reached her; It was directed to Teddingtou House, from whence her letter whs dated, and 1 com-unicateJ to her my intention of being in London on Monday, and of my readiness to see Mr. Thomas, jl Tuesday or Wednesday morning, if she or Lord St.

Vincent wished it. Whatever is decided rest issu red, madam, that you shall have every Protection and indemnity Irora me that the law allows. I have the honour to be. Madam, Your humble servant, BAiiaiNOTojr. Lord Barrington declined interfering, and the order then made lur the clothes toys to be given up.

We understand, however, a serious legal question ps arisen, whether, as these clothes and toys be-ip to the King, until a grant of Mr. Jervis's per. estate to his committee by letters patent ihe King's interest cannot be affected without that tormality; whether the Chancellor had, in fact, any Jlnuiction in this matter Jf he has none, the children Uint legally have been delivered naked. Though it ap-jurcd, from the affidavits in thiacase, that sufficient wsent with them to last a week, without washing. -The Chancellor very properlv remarked that the TJue of the child ren's wardrobes would probably be Xhausted in coma, iu consequence of some arrangement having beeu effected.

JUDGMENT IN THE MATTER OF CHIPPIWG 80D- BUBY SCHOOL. This was an appeal Irom a decree of his honour the Chancellor.

COVEN That interest! gratuitous pciion been so ofteu fav ARDEN THEATRE, Miss Fooie, has given ten to this theatre, where she has ily received aud she made her first appearance here last night as Let Hi a tlardy in the comedy of thr lid it's Stratagem. The character is one well calculated to exhibit to advantage a young lady gifted with fascination and beauty, and Miss Foote invested it with all the grace and charm she commands.

She played with spirit aud intelligence, and showed a decided improvement since we last hud the pleasure to see her. Favoured with success, she trusts now more to her own feelings and judgment, and impart un energy to scenes which would have been marred by ber former timidity. The hoyden seen: is a strong instance of this improvement, and she drew down repeated marks of applause for the original manner in which she played it and sang tho song of 44 My face is my fortune." The put was altogether most a iy and gracefully sustained, pnd must prove attractive. Tue audience were loud in their congratulation on her first entrance on the stage, and they continued to mark her performance with frequent demonstratiuus of approbation- Miss Foote appeared in excellent health and high spirits, and ihwugb, perhaps, she is a little thinner than we have seen ber, she looked as beautiful as ever. Mr.

C. Kemble played Doricourt with his usual excellence. On Thursday evening last an atrocious highway robbery was committed near A wotnau uained Catharine Morton, who goes about the country selling ist slines was at tbe Blue Dor, a public-house on tlie Sutton road, about oae mile and a hall from Maid-btone. At the same house were four brothers, viz. John Startup, a footman, William, Richard, and Robert Startup, three luhourfis.

Tho woman left the TiyiiMt about seven o'clock to return and when she bad got some distance 6he heard the voice of a man behind her calling Kmc." She replied that 6ho could not stop, as she was anxious to got home. Sluutly al ter the hand of a man was clapped on her moutli, and she was knocked dou'n- There were four men, and she found their object was to rob her. She resisted violently but of course inefTeClualy against four men, and they cut off ber pocket, which contained two pounds live shillitrs. Tlie loss of the money was a most distressing circumstance, hut the villains not couteuted with that, used the p. -or woman most cruelly.

One of them knelt on her breast she was beaten dreadfully, and was dracged along the road by the hair of her head orient' the men also dran her alone by the upper jaw, his band being forced into her mouth. When they Lad got the p.ivkct. they crammed he)- apron into hermouth, and lift Iter nearly insensible. At sue recovered sufluuently to crawl to the turnpike ou the Loose roud, where she was taken iu. She was subsequently removed to the bouse where ber husband and she lived, nod medical asshlunce was called iu.

William, Richard, and Robert, were examined on Friday; and on Saturday were brought np "gain with John, but tbe woman being still 100 ill to attend, tliev were all remanded till this day (Tuesday) when it is expected she will be suiuciently I recovered to apj ear against the nmoncrs. Maidstone GeasfiV. ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE. On Sunday morning last, a two men were proceeding along the Dcptford-road, near New-cross, in p-ssiug the end of a gentlemin'- shrubbery, which ex teiideu the foot-path, they he n-d thv moans of a person, bs if in distress, within the palings.

They immediate got ovc into the shru oer, and on their arrival at the spot from whence the noiSv- came, they we very much shocked on seeing an aged man lying down on the bare ground, close to some low.stuuied trees, which precluded the of seeing him without trying up quite close to the place where he was found, tie was dreadfully emaciated, and the bloo'l issued Irom a wound that arp unu to have beeu recently inflicted in his neck. The per. sods who discovered the unfortunate man in such a truly puiab.t state immediately went for Buren, the constable, who, on hein made acquainted with the nature of the case, lost no time in rendering his assistance, and ihe wounded man was forthwith carried between thetn to tb Five Belli, where ihe wound in his throat was sewed up, and after somu nourish' ng things were administered to him, he became so far re-cove ed as to be enublcd to give some acc lunt liimst'f ann the circumstances which led to his deplorable condition. On being sked by Burgess how the wound in bis neck as inflicte', headmitteo that he hod drawn knife across bis throat with the intention of ending miserable life, rut had not effected his purpose, owing to the bluntness of the blade. A knife this desctip-lion was found iu his pocket, with th blari? ard hsmlle all bl ody.

He then ilwt ht hd been a sailor ouhoirdofa man-of-war the greater pm of bis Jile, and that wh-m he became unfit fr service anv lougcr, he became an in-pensioner of Greeowich Hospital. Havings me relations in Norfolk, and being very desirous of seeing them before died, be st out on the urney to see thetn without making known his intention, and when he returned back to Greenwich they refused to admit bim, on the ground that had broken through one of the regulations ef 1 he hospnal. He tried ev.ry elP.irt 10 obtain admittance once more to a pla that he considered he was entitled to iron his lonir servicuda in the nav, but all his endeavours were fruitless, and he was thus in bis old agthron iipoi the world, without friends ho would assist him. Ever since his expulsion from the college he had been wandering about, inv-ing no place of babi and, being beyond Lbiur, on a count of his age, he had suffered tbc mot dreadful Privations, going clien f. days without victuals, and sleeping in the open air, having no where eUe to lay his head down.

Tbe unfortunate msn's emaciated and arved appearance, when found in Ihe situation above dtcscrined, verified the truih of his statement. Burgess had the poor old man, who is upwards af lo years ofge, conveyed to Depiford wcrkhou'e, where avety care is taken of him, and on inquiry yesturdiy, it was said that he was getting better slowly, and that hopes were still entettatned of his recovery. Destructive Fire. Yesterday (Tuesday morn- ing a most destructive fire was discovered on the premises of Mr. Christopher Payne, farmer, of Hawsted, 4 miles from this towm Atone o'clock a young man, named Talliot, walking 011 the road, pliiiiioi flames to proceed from the thatch of the barn, which, before he got the family raised, was.

The loss, besides the total destruction of the bam and cow-house, includes three score of wheat in sacks, and 20 coomb of barley, with un threshed com, in all about one hundred and thirty score. A waggon standing near the buildings was likewise destroyed, together with a ion of hay, Mr. Payne's Iroperty was fortunately insured to the full extent of lis Io.

There is every reason to believe that the fire was the work of an incendiary, as no light whs near the place that evening, and the iamily had retired at au early hour. Suffolk Herald. 1 he Journal de la Meusc relates the gotid conduct of a young Hector of the Canton of Sauilly, who deprives hiinself of necessaries that he may give relief to his necessitous parishioners. He knows the wants of all the inhabitants of his c.mmn le he lends them, without interest, the nuns which the sniallness of his for-tune permits him to give. He distributes abundant charities, and makes no parade about them.

He labours constantly in making peoce reign in families, and concord among his parishioner in a word, he is a true minister of the Lord.
