RETURN their most sincere thanks to Col. ST GEORGE FRENCH, for his kindness in permitting the BAND of the 6th Dragoon Guards to attend their CONCERT on Monday evening last ; as also to those Gentlemen Amateurs—the Professional Gentlemen—and to all those who so kindly assisted on the occasion. They also beg to express their pleasing feelings at the high gratification evinced by the full and very respectable Audience, who honoured them with their presence on that night ; and the grateful sense they entertain of the very flattering manner in which the whole Performance was received.

   PEDESTRIANISM.—M'Mullin, whom we last week mentioned as having commenced to walk 1000 miles and 1000 poles in 1000 hours, had completed 162 miles at three o'clock on Thursday, and was in excellent spirits. John Townshend also started at the same place on Wednesday, at 12 o'clock, to walk 1000 miles in 18 days, Sundays excepted, half backwards and half forwards ; and on the first day completed 64 miles, performing 34 of them backwards,—Newcastle Chronicle.
   On Friday three carts were stopped in a furze field, between Midhurst and Petworth, on suspicion of nefarious traffic, and on examining them, the contents proved to be contraband goods, of the supposed value of 2000l, consisting of silks, silk dresses, bandanas, kid-gloves, and playing cards.—Arundel Paper.
   Between nine and ten o'clock on Friday evening, as Mr. J. Cobertson was returning to Malmsbury in a low four-wheeled carriage, in company with Miss Walker and Miss M. Page, (a young lady from London, on a visit to Miss Walker) in descending a hill almost at the entrance of the town from the Tetbury road, the horse became unmanageable, and set off at full speed. Miss Page, greatly alarmed, jumped from the vehicle, dislocated her neck, and died instantaneously. The feelings of her companions may be better conceived than described.
   We understand that Sir Lowry Cole is appointed to the Government of the Mauritius, in the room of Governor Farquhar, who returns to England forthwith. It is said that a distinguished officer who some time back filled an important situation immediately under his Royal Highness the Commander-in-Chief, would have obtained this appointment, had his health permitted its acceptance.
   Lord Alvanley is indisposed by a considerable hurt he received in his left hand, owing to his being thrown out of his Tilbury, a few days since, in London. The hand has been so painful, and the swelling attending it so increased, that his Lordship has been confined to his apartment, in the Royal York Hotel.
   On Thursday a gentleman who had been to Donnybrook Fair, gave his horse to a boy named Dennis Kavanagh, for the purpose of leaving him at his residence near Dundrum.—When about midway between Windy Arbour and the latter place, the horse took fright, and the poor boy endeavoured to alight, in attempting which his foot got entangled in the stirrup leather, and he was dragged along the ground for near a quarter of a mile, the horse galloping at a furious rate, until stopped a short distance beyond Dundrum. When the boy was disentangled the face presented a horrible spectacle, and so disfigured that it could not be recognised by his agonised parents, whose feelings our sympathising readers may more easily conceive than we could attempt to describe.
   SUICIDE,—We are sorry to record another instance of suicide, M. D. Mansel, Esq., a Magistrate, and who served the office of High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire some years ago, shot himself on Friday last. He has left five children.—Plymouth Telegraph.

   On Sunday last, at Killarney, the Lady of John Coxon, Esq. of a daughter.
   In Dublin, the Lady of Lieut. Col. Johnson, 86th regt. of a daughter.
   In Edinburgh, the Lady of Lieut. Col. Bromhead, of a son.
   In Fife, the Lady of Lieut. Col. Moubray, of a daughter.

   James Wills, Esq. son of the late Thomas Wills, Esq. of Willsgrove, county Roscommon, to Catherine, daughter of the Rev. Wm. Gorman, Rector of Kilmore, county Meath and niece of the Right Hon. the Lord Chief Justice.
   August 19, at St. Mildred's Church, Canterbury, Mr. J. Porter, sen. to Mrs. Catherine Bange, being his sixth wife!

   On the 17th ult. Mr. J. Neale, musician on board the Jupiter, at Plymouth ; he had eaten heartily of a cucumber the preceding evening, was taken ill soon after, and died in a few hours.
   In June last, on the coast of Africa, Michael W. Batty, Esq., Midshipman of his Majesty's ship Iphigenia, and fourth son of Phillip Batty, Esq., of Ballyhealy, in the County Westmeath. He perished in a Tornado with near 500 rescued negroes, whom he was conveying to Sierra Leone, in the Spanish prize Y[illegible].
   On the 24th June last, on board the Vigilante, French slave ship, on his passage home from the Coast of Africa, Samuel John Hunt, Esq. late senior Lieutenant of his Majesty's ship Myrieus, in consequence of a fever and debility brought on by his exertions up the River Bonny, on the 16th of April ; on which occasion, he commanded the boats of the Myrmidon, when, in conjunction with those of his Majesty's ship Iphigenia, they attacked and captured five armed slave-vessels, after an obstinate resistance.

   We have already announced the loss, on the banks of Newfoundland, of the packet-ship Liverpool, which sailed from New York from [sic] Liverpool on her first voyage on the 16th ult. The whole of the passengers and crew are saved, though their sufferings must have been severe, as they were exposed to weather for five days in open boats, when they were taken up by a fishing boat, and conveyed to St. John's, Newfoundland. Captain Lee and the crew, with one passenger, have returned to New York ; and the other passengers have come to England in the Dart, which arrived off Bristol on Saturday, 24th inst. The only particulars yet known of the lamentable event, are contained in the following extract of a letter, received at Liverpool on Monday last, from one of the passengers.
“Brig Dart, off Bristol, 24th August, 1822.    
   “The Liverpool was lost on the 25th ult. on the banks of Newfoundland, by running foul of an island of ice, but all hands saved and put into St. John's ; thence most of the passengers proceeded hither in the Dart, of this place, but a passenger (an infant child) having died on the passage, we are compelled to wait here the visitation of the quarantine officer, which must delay us from landing until to-morrow.
   “Captain lee sailed on the same day with us (6th Aug.) in a schooner for New York, with the whole of the crew and one of the passengers.
   “The vessel only floated two hours, and nothing was saved except the clothes we had on and a little specie. We were five days in the open boats, and on the 7th arrived at St. John's, having been taken up by a fishing-boat on the fifth day.”
   The following is a list of the passengers:
   Mr. N. T. Heard and family, of New York ; Mr. John Simpson, of London ; Mr. Robert Mather, of Liverpool ; Mr. Wm. Christie, of Jamaica ; Mr. Samuel Wright, of Savannah ; Mr. William Castle, of Montreal ; Mr. Thomas Wright, of England, and Mr., G. A. Northedge, of Montreal.
   An Inquest was held on Wednesday last, at St. Nicholas, Thanet, before T. T. Delesaux, Gent. one of the Coroners for Kent, on the bodies [of] George Bedingfield and Richard Johncock, who were killed during a thunder-storm on Monday, when a verdict was returned of “accidental death by lightning.
   Mr. HAMILTON addressed the Court shortly afterwards on behalf of certain persons now confined in Kilmainham gaol, under a charge of High Treason. He presented the petition of—
   Michael Keenon, William Mason, Michael Cox, Mat. Redmond, John Conway, and Michael Quin, who had been apprehended on the above charge, in this city, on the 25th of June, and were in close custody since the 5th of July. Mr. Hamilton presented their petitions under the 6th section of the Habeas Corpus Act, and remarked, that the individuals prayed they may be forthwith brought to trial. The Crown might put off the trial, on the plea that certain material witnesses, whom they purposed producing, were not now convenient ; if such was the course taken, Mr. Hamilton said he would, on the last day of the present Commission, move, that the parties should be admitted to bail, and if not, brought to trial, they would be entitled to their discharge at the Commission next following the present. The Learned Counsel did not, at the moment, press the Court for any order.
   Lord NORBURY—Have the parties served any notice on the Attorney-General?
   Mr. JOHN SEALY TOWNSEND was understood to say, that as the Crown Solicitor was present, the Crown was presumed to have heard the notice given.
   Mr. HAMILTON presented petitions from thirteen others, apprehended under a similar charge at Armagh. Their names are—Thomas Byrne, Edward Clufley, John Rice, Peter Bourke, John Kelly, Bernard Dongan, Thomas Lamb, Peter Reilly, John Bradly, Henry Coogan, Thomas Hughes, James M'Grogan, and Thomas Blake ; they had been apprehended on the 25th of June, at Armagh, and were subsequently transmitted to close custody at Richmond Penitentiary. The parties will either be put on their trials or admitted to bail in a few days.

   A more distressing or disgraceful case, perhaps, never came before a Court of Justice, than did this day in this Court—a father obliged to proclaim his own disgrace and his daughter's shame!
   Rebecca Smyth, a young woman, aged about 20 years, was put to the bar, having been presented by the Grand Jury as an idle, disorderly, and dissolute person, and having no visible means of livelihood. . . .
