At Lancaster, Sept. 20, Ridgway was tried and convicted of a libel, on a prosecution by the Bridge-street Society. The defendant is a poor fustian-cutter in Manchester, and sold an address to the Reformers, by Richard Carlile, dated " Dorchester Jail, Jan. 1, second year of the Spanish Revolution from Despotism to Liberty." The first passage charged in the indictment, is in these terms: "To talk about the British Constitution is in my opinion, a sure proof of dishonesty. Britain has no Constitution. If we speak of the Spanish Constitution, we have something tangible, &c."

S. esq. of Helper, iu the same county. The death of this amiable man in the very prime of life, and amidst every promise of extensive usefulness, may be regarded as a loss to society at large, as well as to the family circle of which he was the delight and the ornament. Gentle and modest in his deportment, affable and courteous in his ruanuers,kind and benevolent in his disposition, he won the regard of all who enjoyed his acquaintance. Possessing a mind alive to the beauties of nature, and to the attractions of the fine arts, his conversation w, s easy, iuterestingaiid improving. His scientific acquirements, particularly on subjects connected with mechanical philosophy, were highly respectable; and his improves nients iu the arrangement of the extensive works atMilford andBelper, bear testimony to his skill and genius. In agricultural employmcnfs he took a lively interest, and conducted an establishment of this nature on a plan which rendered his farm a just object of admiration, and a model for his ii'ighho'.irhood. His acquaintance with suhj 'ets of political economv was correct ••! I! and
and practical ; and the benevolence of his character led hirn so to apply his information as to promote the interests of the numerous work people under his influence. His plans for their welfare were not of a visionary and impracticable nature, but tended at once to inculcate a spirit of industry, order, cleanliness, sobriety, and thus to secure the real independence of the poor. Institutions for the diffusiou of knowledge among them, had his zealous support and active services, and indeed nothing which concerned this important portion of his fellow creatures, was regarded with indiiferciice by him. Judicious as were the arrangements already carried into practice under his superintendauce, he entertained yet more enlarged views for the amelioration of their condition. But his early death has broken oil' these virtuous purposes of his mind, and bequeathed to his survivor the duty of givingfull effect to his benevolent intentions. He bore an anxious and protracted illness, with manly and christian fortitude. For months before his decease, he wished for life only as it might be the means of lengthened usefulness; aud even when he deemed his recovery hopeless, aud was perfectly resigned to the dispensations of Providence, he still thought it an act of duty to his family, to neglect no means of restoration which the tenderness of friendship suggested might be effectual. Under the full assurance that he could not survive the ensuing winter in England, he prepared to avail himself of the milder climate of the south of Europe, and had reached Plymouth, on his way to Falmouth, with the view of embarking from that port. Soon after his arrival there the symptoms of his disorder increased, and he resigned his spirit to Him who gave it.
At Constantinople, on the 20th of Aug. J. Douglas Strult, esq. aged 27, only son of Joseph S. esq. of this town. This amiable young man left his native country 14 months ago, on his travels for the gratification of his taste, and in pursuit of intellectual improvement. He traversed France, Switzerland ami Italy, visited Sicily and Malta, aud from thence, such of the Greek Islands, as the lately troubled state of the times, and the prevalence of the plague rendered accessible. In the course of his interesting tour, he collected many excellent specimens of natural productions, and was successful in obtaining some valuable relics of classical antiquity. Several packages, containing beautiful works in sculpture and painting, had been already sent by him to England, aud he is understood to have had in hi* possession at the time of his lamented decease, other proofs of the delighted attention which lie was paying to the study of tlie line ails. He was at Naples immediately before, and at the time of, the Austrian* enuring that
city: and there, aud subsequently at Messina, he narrow ly escaped with life from the violence of an ungoverned soldiery. In his course from Malta to Corfu, the vessel iu which he sailed was iu imminent hazard of shipwreck from the violence of a storm. His ultimate project was to reach even Egypt, that land of early science and remote antiquity. But on bis voyage from Smyrna to Constantinople he was seized with a malignant fever, incidental to the climate. He was considered dangerously ill on his landing at Constantinople, and was conveyed to the apartments which had been previously prepared for him at rem, in the environs of that celebrated metropolis. But notwithstanding the judicious and unceasing attentions of PiMac Guffog, the physician to the British Embassy and Factory, and the skill of two other eminent physicians, aided by the truly anxious care of his personal friends and those of his family, he died, to the unspeakable grief of all around him, on the day stated above, and was interred on the following day, with those demonstration! of respect, esteem aud regret, which his amiable dispositions and manners, and his untimely fate so justly excited. "By foreign hands his dying eyes were
closed, "By foreign hands his decent limbs composed, "By foreign hands his peaceful grave
adorn'd, "By strangers honour'd and by strangers mourn'd."
An unusual mortality has prevailed lately in Nottingham, and the neighbourhood, arising from bowel complaints. A great number of children have fallen victims to that disorder, aud to the measles. Iu one week, upwards of 100 individuals were buried in the different places of interment.
