COURT4)F KINO'S BENCH-Monday. BYHNE r. PARKi.Vg, This action iTas brought by the plaintiff, who was some time ago the object of public subscriplipn, against Mr. Parkins, Ex-Sheriff of London, for money had and received for the plaintiffs use. Tbe plaintiff was supported with bis family at the rate of two guineas a week, naA having called for an account of Che mmiey, Mr. PaiUns stated that the wbole which came to hb vbaadsamoaated to 168/, 8s. The {flaintiff supposiog Mr. Parkins had not accounted for all the money received, brought this action. Mr. C. Phillips contended that a balance of at least 190/. was due to the pliuatiff. The defendant hud admitted that he received subscriptions to the amount of 300/., yet Mr. Parkins did not account for more than 151/, John Rcott, the first witness, said he was some time since clerk to the defendant. He stated that Mr. Parkins told him on one occasion that the subscription was advancing rapidly, and that be bad 300/. in bis hands, including 5/. received from Sir F. Burdett. Mr. W. Cobbett said in September, 18-22, before the pUintiff arrived in England, the defendant said he bad about 150/. in bis hands. Mr. Robert Bell said Mr. Parkins acknowledged be had received more than was given to Byrne, He gave a reason for not paying over the surplus-" Do you think," said Mr. Parkins, I would give ibc scoundrel tiie money, he means to run away, and leave his wife and children on the parish in England," Mr. Marryatt then addressed the Jury for the defendant, Mr. Parkins bad delivered an account, stating item by item, down to the smallest sum, the money which Byrne had received. The total which catue to his hands was 151/. and it did not appear from any evidence the plaintiff bad offered, that one shilling more had been received. The account was then put in and read. There was a sum of 91. for wages to the defendant's clerk, who carried on the general business of charity and benevolence. The sum of 31. 9s. 5d, was paid for Evening Newspapers to be sent to Ireland. Another item was 491. 4s for half a year's rent for stables and coachhouse, and 31,9s. 4d. for King's Taxes. There was also a weekly allowance during 25 weeks, at two gninens a week. A great nimiber of witnesses were called to make out the items of account, �and also tlie occupation of the stables in Riding House-lane by the plaintiff. Mr. Phillips, in reply, said it would bare beep satisfactory to hare had this Nfee settled in another place. Mr. Parkins admitted that he bad received 3001., and yet he gave in a written acoMint for 1511. One of the accounts must be false. He called the attention of the Jury to the miserable stale in which Byrne and his family were represented to be in the advertisement published by Mr. Parkins, yet this untortunabe father of seven children, and a sick wife, was to pay 1041. a-year for premises. The Lord Chief Justice, in bis charge, called the attention of the Jury to the points, and left them to consider whether they could rely most on ihe written account given in by the defendant, or the sum which one of the witnesses had stated to be 3001. The Jury retired, and on their return found a verdict for the plaintiff-Damages 1941. 4s. 4d. PREROGATIVE COURT, Wkosesday. robson formerly PATTLE, and wakefield, t'. roche, and other*. Sir John Nicholl this day gave judgment in the above cause, which was promoted by the widow and only daughter of Thomas Chariea PaUle, Esq. deceased^ formerly of the East India Company's Factory in China, to repeal the probate which bad been granted of an instrument allegied to be the last will of the deceased, bearing date the 28th of October, 1S15. By this instrument, different legacies, amounting together to 70,000/., were bequeathed to the wife and daoghtcr (which in 'IHIO tbey filed a bill to have paid to them, and received, under a Decree in that su'it), and after various legacies to other relations and friends, tbe residue of the property, being of considerable amount, was bequeathed to the nephews and nieces of the deceased. Tbe hearing of the cause occupied tbe 4th, 7tb, llth, Uth instant. Sir Joii!( NicHOLL said, that tbe ease wi^s in all lespecti one of connderahle importance. He then reviewed the different steps taken by tbe testator at diflferept times, with a view to tbe disposition of his property, in 1805, his fortune then amounting t6 15 or 20,000/., be made a will, bequeathing the whole of it to his wife and daughter. In 1814, when his property was very much increased, he made another will, as tbe Court learnt firoai Sir Theophilus Metcalfe, but tbe particulars given of tbis will were necessarily very imperfect. Then comes the will in question, of which probate was granted on, tbe 29tb of May, 1816 ; and if the evidence of Mr. Croft, who made this will, and tbe prineipal witness in the cause, was believed, the ficto-tum of the instrument, as well as the capacity of the instm-ment, as weH as the capadty of the deceased, were folly and cBrecdy established. Of the capacity indeetl there was nu doubt, as the deceased lived five weeks aftar the date of the instrumeiit, transiucting busuMSS to to the last. Tbe �gnature was proved not only by Mr. Croft hot by five old fneiids of tbe deceased, well aeqnainted with his hand-writing ; and though tlw best'evi-deaeeupon such a subject maa nnsatis&ctory, np stronger proof 1>f that species conlS be given. On the other side the cretft of Mr. Croft was impeiiehefa, ^t upon no other grounds than-his part b a ease�f a^nc^on, admitted by bim pa his' cross exa^ aunation. There ww no plea to put bia general character in issue, nor even a suggestion that up to the date of fliis immoral proceeding bis fame and conduct were not ground of impeacbing the will in question wM the dbsionlarity of tbe signature to that of the testator's ordinary writing. To' establish tbis, tiiree witnesses Who had seen bim write were called, but-it whs evident that their acquaintance with bis writini; was of a very remote date, and the whole of their evidence was unimportant, Tlie next eviclf bonnd not only to dinrefnird it, init to express its hope that such evidence would be abstained from in ftitnre, as leading only to useless expense and vain expectation, "The pre-, sent case failed in the basis or fooudation upon wliich it ought to liave proceeded, namely, a statement who were tlie parties, and what the motives to the alleged fiUrication an)on1d not be justified, then it cquld act be sfddttMtitheiweHSinl'WCed nndortbo iinpressido of passiou ; but that n^^iee afixwMtoilght^extatedin (he mind of the-pen�n who .�daini&eefl the act. It w�s fior the Jury to consider whether the praoner had received siich ddence from the deceased as could la^riv ba'CODsideredj likely �0 mnehto jnitatehim, as-to make Juin lose pdsseasion of reason.

Certainly a more mysterious or extraordinary account was never tendered to the ncceptaucc of a Court of Justice, Tbe same anonymous person had stated tiiat the second letter was iu the possession oi a person named Sntith, now iu tbe West Indies, but for this there was merely his assertion. Such a case as this was one which the C(m|Mpuld hardly have entertained ui an earlier stage of tbe pr^Hngs, and it would not be warranted in entering into it noi^^Ppon the whole, the Court considered itself bound to de-crelWfavour of the will of the 2Uth of October, 1815, and that it would stop slion of justice if it did not give costs ag&iust the parties opposing that will.

The rest was found at a pawn-broker's, and at various pliu-es at which he bad sold the articles. Tlie case was fully brought home to tlie prisoner, and tbe Jury found him-Guilty. Jaine^ Mam was capitally indicted for burglariously breaking and entering the dwelling-house of Ralph Gallua, and stealing thereout a four-ponnd loaf, value 9d. his property. Sevcrnl witnea as he liked.- Deceased still dureatened, bat witness never sa:v him strike, although he was very near to him; Johnson pidied dp his scythe, and, with an oath, said be would chop Richacdaoa's off.- He held the scythe as if he was going to mow; they stood hesi- "i tating for a moment, and tiien tli^ prisoner atMiek at deceased; ' Richardson bad laid down bis scythe when Johnson struck him with tbe scythe. Deceased fell backward and SMd, " Ob Loid! Oh dear, you have killed me!" Witnessmn to Jbbnson and said, " What have you doa�i Are yon not ashamed?** Johnson said he voold serve any man so that should maddle widi bim'; Johnson was at that time in a paswm.

The prisoner and deceased were both hot-tempered Strand, near the .\i)elphi,Bnd called a coach. Coinjdainani drew bia coach to the side of the footpath, and a brother coachuntn opened the door to let in the fare. Just as the genth;mao was ns-cending the steps, however, two others came along, uud took each an arm, and the three walked oil together at a stiarpisli pace. Honest coach>-e thought this very un;,'eiiteel treatment, and was determined at least to have tbe shilling to which by law he was entitled, although merely called off tbe stand. He therefore followed tbe trio, aud making a full stand as be got in front, very civilly touched his hal ami " aj-'rf whether the grmman meant to ride in his conch, or whether be would pay liiin a shilling }" * Neither Jhe one nor the other," was the reply. " Well, then, Sir," rejoined tbe coachman, " I hopes you'll give nir your ml-dress, u 1 may call upon you to morrow." In answer to this modest request, he was told to go about his business for a d-d impudent fellow, aud on the gentlemen proceeded. Coacbee, however, followed ihcm -, and when tbey came to Catherine-street, be charged a watchman to take tbe defendant into custody, but after some parley, the guardian of the night refused to taKe charge, and "onwards" was again the cry, until they reached a celebrated oyster-rooms in Duke's-court, Bow-streei, whither tbey were ntUl closely followed by the coachman. When tbey arrived at the door, the defendant went in, aud his two friends turned about to have " a civil word or two'" with honest Bob Grumby, about settling tbe matter; but Bob had been too long " upon tbe stones " to be *' caught napping," and he kept his eye upon tbe defendant, whom be saw strolling with seeming nonchalance towards the other end of tbe lower room, at which there i� a glass door, affording egress to another part of xhc open court. Through this door the defendant bolted, but Bob was soon close at bis beeU, aud-coming up with him iirDrury-laue, he gave him in cbar^te to a watchman. Mr, Halls (looking round)-Pray Where is the defendant ? The constable of the night writb a low bow, informed the Magistrate that he was not present, but bad sent bis footman,  Mr, Hall-^Pray, Mr, Constable, how came he at large..' Coniitable-Why, your Worship, he was sock a nice respectable, looking gentleman, that I thought it was a pity be should be kiiaked^ all night, and so-and so-1 let bun go : that's all, your Woi^sidp. Mn Halls-Then I can tell you, that you had no right to do any such ihing, unless you hiul security for bis appearance here to-day. You would not have suffered a poor man to have bis liberty until the morning, and such a OKKie of doing yonr.duty will not do, Mr, Constable; we must bav^ something like even-handed justice. You are answerable to tbe coachman, if the defendant does not pay. The constable begged, if that was tbe case, that he might have a warrrant lo bring up tbe defendant immediately, Mr, Halls said, he should send a summons for tbe attendance of the defendant on another day, in order tuat ihe coachman might be paid, not only for bu loss of time on Monday night, but for hu attendance here. A summons was accordingly issued. Babbaroi^s Murder at East Grintbad.-A circumstance lias occurred at Forest-row, near East Gnostead, which, for wanton and unnatural barbarity, stands almost nnparalleled in tbe annals ot!crime. Mr.-, of Forest-row, quarrelled with his aursery-mlid, a few cfays ago, but tbe quarrel bad subsided, aud .h� tfapnght potfaiog more abqat it. Satiorday ereniag, however, a yoa^ diild'of tb�f ituiiUy was m^og, sod. tbe distressed patenter nade tbe mOst laborious, but fruitless search after it dnriu thie�w^|e of the nigfat.- IK was not, however, till tbe next !moHwig that the cause^.chiltfif diasppearaoce was ealingthe war duties on our produce, whkh have reduced our constituents to the condition of bailiffii oB their owu lands, the protecting duty on East India Sngar bas beeh lowered, andour situation in consequence made worse tban b;-'fore. We are aware of the vast debt that was incurred during the late war, and that a great revenue \s necessary ftor tbe wants ot tne Empire J but your Majesty's Mioisten should iissess vour snbiects equally, and not confiscate the Wealth of a few, wh6 are weak and at a distance, to Kgbten tbe contfAution of the remainder, who are powerfbl and who surround the seat of Government, Ana lhi*^B8>8ieasoee of taxattok is leitpirtiall/bome by u*" "aga�i�q fact not to be disimtad^ that the ^reattit and re-^aowyteS of GrQat Britain nm^ied dnifng tbe war, and that her agncultore,iiiann�BCtare8,and commerce wonderfully ffourished, while we, your Majesty's West India snbjects, sutfbred throughout the contest ail its disadvantages, in the increased di^cnlries t)f nivigation, in tbe higher price of British goods, and tbe rt--( u ed value of oar own. \ I'lie conqoest of the hostile Colonics by your Mnjestv's' arms caused the British market to be overstocked with our commodi-t es, and the splendid triumphs of your royal navv, which eave birth to the decrees of the French'Ruler, and to the retaliatorv orders of your Majesty's Council, closed every Continental port against us; thus, for a considerable period, sugar did not le-pav the cost of production, and the coffee could not find purchaser's at any price. Hitherto our complaints have been confined to the injastice of seizing on the entire revenue ot the Colony; but we are now threatened with a new calamity, which, if it overtake us, will destroy even the hope we have always rcpojed in the beneficence of your Majesty, Resolutions have been moved by one of your Maji sty's Ministers, and agreed to in the Lower Mouse of i'arliameat, falsely us-sumiug that the labouring population of this island are ill-treated and unhappy, and vdluntarily pledging that House to interpose iu their behalf with a view to their emancipation. It is onr dnty humbly to represent to your Majesty, that we have taken no oath of allegiance to the Imperial Parliament, and that we cannot submit to the degratlation of having onr internal interests reculated by tbe Commons of Great Britain, whose (lowers within that realm are not superior to those which we, the assembly, have ever exercised within the island of Jamaica, Should your Mi^esty's Parluiment proceed in their attempt to subvert our Constitution, and oSer for the Royal Assent, any art that arrogates an authority over the inU'rior of our Island, we beseech your Majesty to n-ject the act, and, by that timely interposition of your Royal Prerogative, to save us from utter ruin. We need not point out to your Majesty's wisilom tbe certain destruction that awaits the Colony, should tbe Ntgross be Uught that in us, their natural protectors, are to be found their enemies, and in the distant country of Great Britain their friends and liberators: when this new light bursts on their unluformcd minds, Jamaica will soon be as lost to the Mother Country as St. Domingo is to France, But, if this island is to be the scene of a dreadful experiment we claim that we may not be involved in the awful consequences. If slavery be an offence to God, so are anarchy, desolation, and blood. Let your Royal Parliament become tbe lawful owners of our property by purchase, and we will retire from the Islan.l, and leave it a free field for modern pbUanlbropy to work upon. The Deity, who sees into the heart, is not to be propitiated by laying on his shrine the possessions of our bretbreu, but only by the sacrifice of what is our own to offer.

Paris, Feb 14.-A telegraphic dispatch from Madrid, addressed by the Ambassador of France to the Minister of Foreign Alfairs, dated the 10th of tbis month, announces that the King ot Spain has just signed a decree, which grants the lil)erty of direct trade of the Spanish colonies with all nations on the foolin^j of an equality of duties. [from the ETOILF.t DATFI) monday.] Paris, Ff.b. 15.-A treaty has been made with Spain for thf free commerce of all nations with tbe colonies (see the telegraphic dispatch.) The thirty-four in'dlions due by Spam to France are recogniscti, and the treaty for the occupation signed. It is said that the .Marquis do Talaru will have llie blue ribbon. 'I'h.-arrival of the Marquis de Mata Florida at Paris is annonnciil, who is going to Turin as Minister for the King of Spain. Madrid, Jan. 6.-We hear that the decree of amnesty wili be published, and it is necessary, that there may be a fixed l.uv of government, but with the modifications which the restoration requires. The men who were faithful till the forced oath of his Majesty, and afterwards behaved in a prudent manner, will oo-tainhis Majesty's clemency, and be restored to favour. The convocation of tbe ancient Cortes is spoken of. This National Representation is not in the taste of our liberals. Its sole right is to grant or to limit the subsidies which the King asks. In other respecU the King is legislator; the Cortes iinve only th� faculty of requesting bim to issue such or such a law, such a necessary reform, &c. The outli of Grand Justiciary of Arragon and so many other things which the democraU havo vociferated to give strength to their popular sovereignty were only vain forms. The Cortes made laws, and evt-n regulations, but according to the will of the Sovereign. Peri'ionan, Fbb. 9,-The property belonging to the Monks at Barcekina, which bad been sold during the Constitutional regime, are now to be restored to them. Tlie magistrates^ccompauy them to expel the present possessors, but s-veral of tbem have protested against the measure. The Baroness d'Eroles is expected to arrive at Barcelona, where she wi.'l occupy the hotel of the Captain-General. Odessa, Jan. 21.-The European Consuls at Smyrna have written to tbe Primates o/Hydra, Jpsara, and Spezzia, tlecJariug to them that the security of their national establishments, at Smyrna, required that tbe Greeks should undertake no hostile enterprise in tbe Gulf of Smyrna, mcluding the Island of Urias and extending to the north and sool^ points of the Gulf. It was signwl at Smyrna, Dec, 12, 1823, by M. Cavid, Consul-General of Prance. J. Werrp, English Consul, J. Hochpied, Coarul of the Netherlands, and A. Dellegracci, of the Austrian Consulate. In tbis piece they remind tne Greeks of Count Orloff having done this, m 1774, by an express convention, and Admiral Duckworth having done the same in the war between the Turks and English. The Consols also requested the Primates to inform all Greek vessels, by a proclamat on, that they were not to molest the Gulf of -Smyrna, as, otherwise, the European inhabitants of the town might fiill a sacrifice to the Turks. The answer of the Senate of tbe isknd of Ipsarais dated December 1 a, and is of the following tenor : - That though willing to do every thing which might protect the commerce of Europeans, and prevent the tlan-u-ers which threaten their persons from a state of hosUltUes, yet that the duty which they owe to their country will not permit them to refrain from exei closing the rights of war against their enemies (the Turks), of pursuing them along all the coasts of their dominion. They add, that the precedents of tbe English and the Runians in their wars with Turkey do not apply to those whom the Sultan claims as subjects, and who carry on a national resistance to it; that they will respect the European name, and wiU make no attadk except where the perceive the Turkish flag; and that there is only one way of escaping their vengeance -by aereeing to pay them tribute � this is super-excellent It if to act the part of the Sultan, the part of an in-detieodent, and an acknowledged state; but we fear it is to rtrtke the bafauwe before making the accounts. What will England, FratMe, Aiutria, and the Netherlands say to it? Will these Powers submit to have ihe property of their subjects injared by any at^mpt of t^e cqiiuuaoflers, acting under the injunctions of the Senate of Isara? and should any of these Powers lentf a few sHips to attack these commanders, what wUI >ecome of the fleel betoagm^ to Hy-dry, Ipsara, and Sp^ia? ,_ , v' r a is stated in these papers that JJtf healih(0t the Princess of Conde isAHy DecU>nfiiig worse, that she has lost all recollection, and that her life is despaired of.
