I Tickets No Oxford-street, On Thiii"Silay last the benevolent Mrs. Fry paid a visit to our county ^�ml.   Ti>e nttcDlioii which this Lady has long bfstowed on (he arraiijjeaients of prisons, und the disciijline of their wretciieil iiitii:i!e.'>, and, above all, the distiugiiishetl success wliirh has a'teiideil her judicious and iiinvcaried cxenioii!' in the Metropolis, particularly in Neivj^ale, could not fail to render her movements in this tonn an object of laudable curiosity and interest.   She did not arrive in Derby till the night before, and as her visit to the (�aol was fixed for so eatly an hour as nine o'clock in the iiinniiiit; of Timrsday, cotnpa-ratively few of those who wouhl olherwise liave been rratlfied by attending her wcie aware of Iter intention.   A considerable number of Ladies and Gcn-lletnen had, however, siiflicient notice to ucconipany her III this vi.-il of lininutiily, and all were in a very high tiegree att'ccted and gratilieil hy what slie dtd and said.   She was received by the (gaoler with Ihe civihiy lor which he is di.-'tiiigoished, and his attentions to her were those of a man conscious of tjie difficulties with which he has to �trii(�gle from the cotiiitruction of tiie prison ; anxious to  e coimniited to his custody may be promoted.   After iUHking ininiite inquiries respecting the urranj^eiiieiit of the tjaol, Mrs, Fry could not help deploring its lamentable want of accomtnodation, for the piirpo-us both of classification and discipline; and she listeneil with the most lively satisfaction to the intelligence tliat its condition is under the serious conleniplatinn of the Ala-i>istrHcy,'uud will, in all probability, be soon placed in astute better fitted for ilieiiupotlanlolijects which leijal puni.dliiietits should always have in view, viz. example a lid reforinaiion.   Having satisfied hersrlf respeeiin!� the economy of the prison, in its present state, IVivs. Fry pioceeded to visit the (Vniales lodged within its walls.   To tlie credit of the county the iiuiiiber belongiiiij to this se.\ is seldom large. Two o'r three is the most usnul aiunuiit. Ei^^ht hare been known there at once.   At present there are only six, and one of tbeiie is adebltrf; bat for vvant of the power of cinssificatiun, all   tiie  females  ure usually cuidiiied lo^elher.   Mrs. Fry was attended; to ihis puit of the jjai'l by Mrs. Eiioii (who seconds, : iii ev^ry possible way the exertions of Iter husband to promote Ihe catitfort uitd iiiijirovemeiit of the pri-. Boners), and by as many of the coinpaiiy as coitld fitid i atmidiug room in the little apannieiit. Amongihi-se; I Wcis .oi)e bejievuletiLilady who has foii^ ;beeii it) jtlie liabit of visiting the fpniale prisoners, ,P|Ursuing,Jhe ^ s'aiiie object which' Mrs. Frytius so much at heaft. This circumstaiici; gave' great satiifactioii to iVlrs. Fry, and she heard, with inany exjpressioiis of admiration and delighfi the plans pursued, and the Kood effects prodoefd by tiiis felfots-la-hourer iu her Immhler and utiosteiiiatioug jjipliere. The appearance loo of the wbnleii justified jhe report she heard of them. Tliey were t:lean. Rudest^ in their looks, and respect lot iu their dettieanplir. Several of them had �o efFe(ctiT4lly availed; themselves of the instruction offered to ihem while iu prison, tliat they had leartie4;'to read ; and 'at Mrs. Fry*.* request they went thri}u|;h the 4di dijapter of the epistle to the EphMraniTtifa vtry Sitlisfactnry iiiaiiner. When they had 'co'iicluded, iVirs." Pry addressed them, with n looh^hmanuer,.^ aod voice, most kind, aftectionate, �o e of hearinjj them. While she spoke, in her mild but persuasive inainier, the silent tears flowed freely down ihe cheeks of those to whom she addressed herself; and at the coiiclusiian of her very feehtig observations to them, they brought their Bibles to her, that she might mark, for tlieirsubsequent perusal, the passages lo which she liad drawn their attention. Graiifjing as thei-e symptoms no doubt were to all who witnessed tlieiu, yet Mrs. Fry knew too well the transient nature of even the best impressions to expect much benefit from them, 'unless they are renewed from time to time, and deepened till they cannot be effaced : she therefore availed herself of the kind and generous "sympathy which slfe saw in the ladies around her, to suggest, that a few of them should foriu themselves into a Committee to follow up the benevolent design which had already been acted upon with so much success, by.the iodivi-tiual, whom it would be a pleasure here to name, did we i.ot fear lo wounil her delicacy, by thus making public what she has perhaps too studiously concealed. We have reason to liope that., with the concur-teiicp of the M agist rac^j,^,^^^ tile wO{,th*Ch�plaiii_ ^frlfcgiioTr'liis witl GeB�dmpfiVttea, auJt'n ruch a case, ihe jmliciotis, rational, impressive, and af-fectionate mode of aildress, adopted by Mrs. Fr}-, will, no doubt, be a model for their imiialion, whenever they undertake tbe delicate office of instructing the prisoners.-Before leaving this side of the gtiol Mrs. Fry paid some wetl-deseived compliments lo Mrs. Eaton, for her valuable attention to the wants und welfare of the unhappy beings uiiiler confinement; parlieularly in finding woik for them. Ami here it may with great propriety be suggesteil to the public, that I >e diffunlty of disposing of the work, occasionally done in the gool, is a great evil felt by both Air. and Mrs. Eaton. Surely when the importance of this subject shall be duly considered, the purchase of the pris-oners' work uill be regarded as one of the duties of benevolence. Leaving the apartments of the women, Mrs. Fry vi�ited the other parts of the gaol, and in the day-room on the felons' side was, grieved to see so many ytiuHg delinquents associating with older aiid mote in-Hctised criminals. The wretched inmates having collected about her, she could not resist (though contrary to her |irevious intentityi) making such observulinns 'o.ihem as iheir eituation seemed lo require. To them also she spoke of the heinous nature nf vice, and the enoouragenients to forsake the evil of their ways, whether in the contempla. tion of their renewed intercourse with the world, or tlie drea �tliicfeing uuless a Urge fjeet of tfieir' owjn prows were iu company.

A report was prevuleet at Batavia, that a British sloop nf War had been ihrire attacked iu ihe Straits ofSunda, by a fleet of llie Malay's largest prows, and hud lost forty-nine men in killed und wounded, but had gallantly beat off the (lirutes. Our informant could not learn the name of ihe British ship. THE QUEEN'S TRIAL. PORTSMOUTH, November 9. [extract of a private letter.] La�t night arrived in Cowes Hoads the American ship Bengal, ()5 days from the Straits of Suudu : she left lying in Samarang roads the ships Claudiiie and Matabar, fur Europe, the latter to sail about the middle of August. The country ship G�or-ijiuna, Worthingtoii, left Tangier for the Isle of France and Liverpool, the 2d August. The Dutch Expedition against Palembang left Batavia 31st July, consisting of one 74 razee, one 60-gun ship, three frigates "itx^ ship-iluups, about 100 guu-vessels, and a large proportion of flat boats, to disenibark troops-a iiuiuber of Briiish, and 6ther vessel's, had been takeii. up. to transport troops, stores, &c. The Dutch having beeu twice beft^re defeated, doubts were entertaiiied at Batayia' of their �ucc��?, particularly as it was well-knowh the HOUSE OF LORDS, Friday, Nov. 10. The Lord Chancellor entered the House a few minutes he-f,>re ten o'clock ; prayers were read, aud the names called over. The House went lo Ihe Order of Ihe Day for the third reading of the Bill of Painsand Penalties agiinsi her Majesty tbe Queen. The Earl of MORLEV rose and said, that having ob the first meutioa of Ihe circumstaoccs from which this Bill originated conceived that ini)niry was absolutely necessary- haviog thought then as he Jid now, that his Noble Friend who had suhoiilted this painful business to Ihe consideration of Parliament hail acted consistently with bis duty as a Peer     that House, aud a respon'sible member of his Majesty's GovernnienI-having considered that the measures taken thereupon by. that Noble Lord were taken wisely and wilh good faith and having thought during a considerable  period  of the  progress of'these proceedings-, lhat tbe circumalances'adduced in a great degree justl^M the measure, he ha^, notwilhslandiog all these predilecd(j|)3 iu favour of tbe Bill, been compelled from conscieolioos.con-viclion to oppose Ihe second reading of Ihe Bill, as he ioimded now to say " Not Content" to the third  readine.'"''The charges in the;-preamble had not been fully, surely^ and-(as Ibey ought tv hare been) iucoiilruvertibly prnveil.    The Bill rxlended its accusations over a period of six, years, and liamuf- *h�' Whole time,- on m 'one smghr duy^^lrtthairf one distinct and clearly specified act of adultery been proverl upon the evidence of auy credible witness.   Exttu^'ive as were the operations abroad on behalf of the prosecution, and unremitting as the efl^orts of all Ihe parties so engaged must have been, the fact was as be bad staled it, that nut une act of adultery had been brought home to ihie Queen by credible teslimony.   Inferences fairly drawn, an o-nouoced in the House on a ca.se of adultery iu 1811, iu support of his are;ument.    Either the adnllerons intercourse commenced before tbe Queen boarded the polacre, or it did not.   If it did, many distinct acts should have been proved previous to that period ; if the criminal intercourse had not commenced before lhat period, it was almost impossible to conceive  that  it could   have  originated in that vessel, under the circunast-ducea which had beeu described.   Who, he would ask, could sit with safety upon the Throne if private conduct were to be considered good grounds for passing an ex post facto law like Ihe present ?   If once lliat principle were admitted, it would shake the Throne, and the possessor of it could never exercise his high functions in that firm and secure manner which was one of Ihe most advantageous resnlts of monarchical government.-^ Princes could not be expected lo be more wise or more virtuous Iban other men ; and be begged their Lordships, keeping lhat principle in view, to compare the advanlagea which reoulted from llie fixity of the rule, wilh those which resulted from personal and private virtue in the .Sovereign, The Noble and Learned Loril on the Woolsack had deprecated the introduction uf Ihe topic y�ar; he too deprecated it, because be apprehended the only effect of an Ad. dress to that passion would be to facilitate tbe passing of the Bill. Lord SOMEBS rose and said, he should have been happy if he could have agreed with the Noble Earl who had spoken last; but after Ihe evidence which had been given at their Lordships' bar, he thought it impossible to say that ' the Bill ought not lo pass; he was most truly sorry to say it, but he had come to a direct contrary conclusion.- With however little delicacy Noble Lords might, ou some occasions, express their confideDce in Iheir own opinions, ; be should have thought it might at least be considered doubtful when the Billbad been decided to be read a second ' time by a majority in that House Even of those Koble Lords who spuke against tbe second reading, some expressed strong smpicinns, and some positivfly declared the c'a :J�roved, IhiKigh on other grouuj* they fell bound to i)|.i> -"','l'i into the evidence wliit-h had been proifurcd, bi't at !l-e i-a i;>' lime it was iorpossible to justify tdeopiitioo he he.I t' n, lhat ihe crime of adil'leryniad b(:rn CDniini: I -i.
