It would well become fome independent members, aroidft the other bufinefs of the country, to attend to the ftrange vacancies that yet wait to he filled up in oar laws. While Government allows a reward for apprehending a highwayman, there � none for taking a murderer; dnd though there is 4 reward for fecuring fellow who deals a bullock *orth tel. there is none for taking the man who �carries away a horfe valued at 100 guineas. Such icings are a diigr^e to the fenfe of the country. Trial Of Warren Hastings* Esq^ The Lords yefterday came into Court about half an hour before two o'clock. Mri Anftruther, on the part of the Commons, \ reminded their -Lordfhips of the proofs adduced of money received by Mr. Haitings from Kelleram. . He then proved the letting of certain lands an perpetuity to Kelleram ; and :in, order to (hew that fuch letting"was ctofie corruptly, and to the injury of the Company* he was proceeding to prove that Kelleram foon after fell into great arrears ; and that the Company, inflead of receiving a rent of 35 lacks, as had been agreed upon, received only about 26. The-Counfel for Mr. HalUngs objected to this, becaufe Kelleram's falling into arrears was not ftated in the article of charge ; and evidence could be received to no matter not found in the record. The Managers contended, that the evidence w4s admiflible, and ought to be received on three diftincl grounds. ift. Mr. Hallings was charged with letting the lands corruptly, and to the great injury of the Company. Mr. Haitings, in his anfwer, admitted the faft of letting, but faid it was not done corruptly, nor to the injury of the Company. The point at ifTue, therefore, was, were the lands let corruptly, and to the injury of the Company, or not ? And on this the evidence offered was ad-rmflible. 2d. The fubftance of the crime charged confining in the corruption, it was material to (hew the confequences that refulted from fo letting the lands. 3d. Every mifdemeanor being more or lefs a crime, according to the circumiiances with which it was accompanied, th� profecutor had a right to prove the circumftances as matter of aggravation ; and one mode of doing this was to give evidence of the confequences which followed from the ail of mifdemeanor. The whole day was fpent in arguing thefe points; and at four o'clock the Lords withdrew to the Chamber of Parliament, to decide upon thenv; the Managers having firft requefted leave to give in their ftatement of the cafe in writing, and to be informed of the grounds of their Lordfhips decifion in cafe it ftiould be againft them, in order to know whether they might be allowed, in the further progrefs of the trial, to give jn evidence any circumftances of aggravation whatever. At a dinner of Free Mafons on Saturday laft at the Thatched-Houfe, St. JamesVftreet, a per-fon who had retired was brought back and accufed of theft; on fearching him, fix large drinking glajfes were found in his pockets. He fet. up no defence but that, elevated by the Conviviality of the day, he had taken a feiv glajfes too mauy !

The poor fellow, on whofe account a recent duel happened in Scotland, ijo foOner heard of his msdter*!s fate, than he fell into ftrofig convaHkms, an4 3icd in fhe courfe of a few hours! Taefday night Major Gale, of Bruton-ftreetj and Mr. Houghton, of Brook-ftreet, were attacked at Chefhunt-walhj Herts, by four footpads, armed, who robbed one of the gentlemen of a gold watch, and his purfe containing ffimel money. On Sunday evening, as Capt. Hamilton and his Lady were ceming to town from their houfe at Hayes, they were flopped near the Green Man, at Ealing, by three highwaymen of very genteel appearance, who politely demanded their money, on whreh Captain H. immediately pre* fented hisrpiftol % one of the highwaymen at the fight of it fell from his horfe; another, more fpirited, faid toAim, what are you frighted at ? Immediately -Capt* H. fired his piftol, but without effeft; on which the highwayman feized him by the hand before he could get the other, and robbed them of upwards of forty pounds, and their gold watches. The watches they returned, and that in the fight of two or three people who flood in the road. MARRIED.] Lately, at Dublin, by his Grace the Archbiihop of Dublin, the Rev.

Such approbation have the faid Drill and Horfe-hoe met with, from hundreds of pradlical Agricultures, who laft year (unfavourable as it was for hoeing) reaped extraordinary advantages from the ufe .of them ; the Patentee thinks it needlefs to expatiate on the merits of the fame; obferving only, in the words of competent judges, " That in order to be generally ufed, they only require to be generally known." It lhall, therefore, fuffice me to fay, that with the faid Machine, from eight to ten acres of land are commonly drilled in one day; and with the Horfe-hoe, from eight to ten acres are effi&ually hoed in one day, at the trifling expence of 6d. or 8d. an acre. Incredible as this may appear, it is neverthelefs a fa�l, and fo fimple is the contrivance for influencing the direction of the Horie-hoe with fix fhares, that it was laft year made ufe of upon thoufands of acres, and particularly at Mr. William Freeman's, of Afpal, near Debenham, in Suffolk, upon feveral hundred acres of land, by a youth of the age of fourteen or fifteen years.
