My child,who is two years and a half old, has been; sn Iferinij under evei y spm'ies of debility ever since it was six mouths old, owinj to the extretne ditticully of cullinp; her tl'eth, so much so, that .T total waste of iiesli and disloi'tioii jof the joints, rendered the child incapable of bcin^ moved without a pillow, ul the same tim.f liaviii2r trnus on her le^s to prevent their '.reltinjj more, distorted ; when, directed bV Providence, I was recommeiuied to apply to yon for the Syrup, whicli, after nsinp two or three'days, my child a]ippared to receive fresh life and sticnsftli, and however aingnlur it may appear, after using only one bottle of the Syrup, I was enabled to take the irons fn�m her leg-^, and .shortly after she became perfectly restored."

Tlie vessels, which were tmiiieroiis in the river, extending from Carlisle-bridge, to the extremity id' the Nnrlh-wall, had all of them lights atlheir mast-lieids and yard-arms, which had a novel jttid singular n|i|)eaiaiice, as if an iniiiimer.ible quantity of sliis, of vaiious m.ignituilcf, had studded the " o'erli.iiiginir firfuanieiil." The day and i.iglit were wet: ami unfavourable, notwl'Jistiiidiiig which the whole population of the oi'v, of every age and se.x, and rank, poured forth in iiiasli-moiiv of rejoicing on account of the fate of ihe Cill of Pains and Penalties. . A Correspondent at Montrose states-" On Wednesday evening our town was brilliantly illuminated, although it was not till a late hour that the intention was generally known. However, when the example was given, there was a proniptitude displayed to give lucid proof that we warmly participated in the joyous occa.�ioii, which has warmed many a hetrt, and lighted up many a countenance with congratulation, on the result of the proceedings in the House of Lords. We have awaited the arrival of the mail with anxious.^hought, to bring- ns an Hccount of each day's proceedings in this inom'entons trial. Thongh short the preparation to iHuminale, unless ail anxious wish might have anticipated the i'ejult, there were several appropriate inscriptions and lie-vices exhibited in various windows. In the centre window of our public buildings appeared a bust of her Majesty, a well-executed transj)arency, a crown pi.iced aliove, with " C. R." and under-written, " Trtnmphanl." In the window uf a respectable inhabitant the emphatic words, " Fair Play." !n that of an humble dwelling " I thank thee, niy God, that thou hast made my eneinie.s my footstool!" This certainly evinces how great the pleasure at the result, how universal this feeling, and how numerous were those who watched the progress of the cause, which it would be absurd to call � the cause of party or of any individual'. " There Imve also* been illuminations at Forfar, Lawrencekirk, and Marykirk. The city of Brechin was briHiantl3^illntninated on Wednesday evening. Many very appropriate devices were exhibited. One in particular attracted public attention, and had considerable effect on the risible faculties; in the centre was a drawing of the Queen, surrounded by the names of lur Counsel, in large capitals; the crown elevated a little above her heail, as if ready to descend upon it; a little below, on her right hand, was a signpost, with the words--" The road to Iiaijr," which wasfolloweil by two deplorable-lookiii"; wretches, a male anil a lemale-Majucchi and Demont, with " A'ort mi ricordo" issuing from the mouth of the former : on the Queen's left hand stood a figure that might serve for the statue of Horror, wiih a belly like a bow-window, and a huge green hag lying by his side. There was not the least disorder on the occasion. The intelligence of the failure of the Bill of Pains and Penalties arrived at Kirriemuir on Wednesday, and immediately produced a most enthusiastic burst of joy and exultation. About eleven o'clock p. m. the bells were rung, an immense bonfire blazed at the Cross, and thirty of the nio-;t respectable inhabitants in tlie town assembljCd in the Trades' Hall, to express their feelings of satisfaction. Many loyal and consiitutional toasts were drunk, and the evening was spent with great con-viviiility. Another numerous party of inhabitants met in iMr. Rattray's inn, and likewise spent the evening with much hilarity. LINLITHGOW, NOVEMBER I?. The proceedinijs against the Queen have excited much interest, and their progress been particularly watched by a great proportion of the inhabitants of this burgh. When the account arrived of the fate of the Bill of Pains and Penalties joy was visible in almost every countenance. On the evening of the same day a number, whose feelings weie most acute, illuminated their' houses, and on Thursday evening the greater part of the inhabitants, being desirous of shewing ttieir attachment to her Majesty, agreed to ijluminale their houses, and the town and neigbbourhuod was most bril-liaiitly illuminated, with the exception of a few. la some of the wiudows there were appropriate inscriptions and representation", such as Britannia in Iriuinptl, holding a Cap of Liberty, and u British Tat holding a flag, with the inscription, " Britons never shall be Slaves ;" ami a beiuiliful le-ptcse:: tion of Ciiiimerce, and a C-reeii Bit:, wiiji \\v � inolto, "This i5.i:r was full t.f SLriidtr, bin it t all disproved."

For some days past, and particularly ye.-terd.iy, a tiuiiiber uf the inhabitants of this [ilacc evinced a desire to illuminate their windows, nn ac'onnt nf the I'lte of the Bill of Pains and Penalties in tl-House of [jords. The iV!agi^trates i.;-ave v.-iv to li,-popular I'eeling, titid publicly nnnoiinceil an iilo::i:-iintion to tike place from seven to half-past nine.

This hurley-burley diversion, however, seemeil '�> be c-jrn-d on with j>erfect good huaiour, and nnr the least accident happened. By ten o'clucl; tb--! lights were generally extinguished, and nn hour after the streets were perfectly quiet. The city of Aberileen was brilliantly illomina'i d on Friday night. Several tasteful and ele^.m!: irauspare-ncies were e.-clnbited. One full-lmgib beautiful transparency of the Queen, in a liou-ie in ijrnnd-strecl, attracted particular attention. Her Majesly is represented in lull dress, suttnouii'eel with a scroll, bearing the words-"They have don-: everything to destroy me," to which she points ; another is suspended from her other hand, t.'i' words inscribed - "To God and the People;" and aiie nppetirs to trample under foot " The .Milan Commission." TuRitiFF, HuNTi.Y, and Banff were aUo partially illuminated. At the latter plaet: the .Vjagis-Irates issued a mandate; strictly proliibiting tens mode of expressing the public feeling, but without eti'ect. Not the slightest breach of the peace, hu.i-ever look place. A Nairn Correspondent desires to state, that o,i receiving the news there of the proceedings against the Queen being discontinued, a magnificent tion-fu-e, consislino-ol tar-barrels and other combustiLIei-, was erected, and a flag-displayed, surfounded iv.' torches, and "/ion mi ricordu" written on it m capitals. Also that a great conconrs-: of people a.tended, and tlie usnal'vociferations of course ensued of " Long live Queen'Caroline !" &c. H.iWICK, NOVEMBER l6. On Tuesday last, in coiueqiience of a very general expression of the public feeiing in this pkice, the Magistrates and Town Council g-ave notice hy proclamation that a general illatnmation ul toe town might take place that evening in honour of the acquittal of the Queen. ' .-Vbout three o'clock in the afternoon of Tuesday, the E"-arl oi .Vliuto arrived at the Tower Inn here, on his way from London to I'Vlinto House, Oiv entering the town he was immediately recognised, when itie inhabitants rushed in hundreds to the area before the inn, exclaiming " The Queen and Minto for ever His Lortlship appeared in excellent heuUh and ;
