The brig Cumberland, of Maryport, Captain Joseph SELKIRK, timber loaded, arrived at Kirkcudbright from Miramichi, on the 7th inst., 26 days passage, all well. Also, on the same day, the brig Mary, of Whitehaven, Captain COWMAN, and Janes of Maryport, Captain JOHNSTON, both timber loaded, from Quebec. The Cumberland left the Gemini, of Maryport, and the Claremont, of Workington, at Miramichi, half laden and waiting for timber.—On the 19th ult. spoke the Alexander, of Maryport, GORLEY, in long. 32, outward bound, having lost a boy.
The Traveller, YEOWARD, from St. John's New Brunswick, arrived at Whitehaven on the 8th inst. She sailed on the 16th August; on the 19th, spoke the Henry, PETTIGREW, of Harrington, from Killibegs, with passengers, for St. John's, New Brunswick, off the Grand Manann, out 43 days, all well.—On the 12th ult. in lat. 45. 55. long. 31. 46. fell in with the ship Governor Griswald, SNOW, of New York, from Rotterdam, bound to New York, in a sinking state, having started a butt; took the captain and crew (eleven in number) out of her.
The Thomas Tyson, John PEARSON master, of Maryport, from St. Petersburg, bound to Liverpool, was dismasted on the 4th inst. and is on shore in the Isle of Sky. Capt. PEARSON died the day the vessel went on shore.
The Jemima, William WALKER master, from Mirimachi, bound to Maryport, was struck by a tremendous sea on the 5th instant, 200 miles clear of the Irish coast, and totally dismasted—boats and all other things swept off deck. Five of the crew were washed overboard and drowned; among whom were the Captain's brother, and Samuel SHAW, mate, all of Maryport. The vessel is driven on shore in Sligo Bay.
The Bold, James TURNER master, from Newry, bound to Preston, with a cargo of oats and wheat, was driven on shore near Maryport on the 10th inst. at half tide. She was got off on the 11th, and brought into the harbour; the cargo was discharged, much damaged.
On the morning of the 8th inst., a large ship came off Whitehaven, about half tide, with an American ensign at the fore-topgaliantmast-head; it was blowing so fresh that no boat would venture out to her—about half-past seven A. M. she wore, and stood for the Scotch side, and went ashore on Almorness Point.
We are sorry to understand, that the ship Mary and Henry, of Charleston, Captain Isaac SILLIMAN, from Charleston, during the severe gale of Tuesday last, was driven high up on the Almorness shore, in the district of Kirkcudbright. She is loaded with upwards of a thousand bales of cotton, and a number of cane reeds, consigned to merchants in Liverpool, for which port she was bound. Every exertion is making to discharge the cargo, under the care of the officers of the customs and preventive coast-guard, in order to get the vessel off. She is a fine large ship, 450 tons burthen, and we are glad to hear that the crew are all safe. Up to Saturday night about a third of the cargo has been got out. During the same gale, five vessels were put on shore in Kirkcudbright Bay, without, however, being much injured.—Dumfries Journal, Oct. 15.
Extract of a letter from Liverpool, dated October 10.—"The Manchester has come in. She picked up the crew of the Pomona of Conway, from Belfast to Liverpool, with wheat, when she was sinking on Monday last, 15 miles south of the Isle of Man, by which the Manchester was delayed 32 hours."
Douglas, Oct. 10.—On Sunday night last, his Majesty's cutter Vigilant, Captain REID, in attempting to get under weigh, (having been at anchor in this Bay) was ran foul of by a heavy laden sloop, which sprang the cutter's bowsprit, and lay so completely across her bows, as to prevent her shooting a head. The Vigilant, thus entangled, and beaten by a heavy sea, drifted astern until she tailed on St. Mary's Rock, where her rudder was unshipped and she became totally unmanageable. In this perilous situation, her anchors all coming home, and after every possible exertion to get her off had been made by the officers and men, it was deemed necessary, for the safety of the crew and the hull of the Vigilant, to cut away her mast; which being done, she was warped off the rock, and we are happy to add, was the following afternoon, towed into Douglas, with comparatively little or no other damage, and where it is calculated she can in a few days be put in such a state of temporary repair as will enable her with safety to proceed to some of the King's dock-yards to refit. The spars and rigging have all been saved, and her mast was so judiciously cut away, as will enable it to be set up for an excellent jury mast. The sloop Merchant, of Fraserburgh, from Dundalk, laden with oats, John THOMPSON, master, bound to Dublin, was driven on shore, on Monday night last during the gale, opposite Castle Mona. The crew saved themselves by climbing up the mast until the ebbing of the tide; but the vessel and cargo were a total wreck.—We understand that Sir William HILLARY and a few other gentlemen have been very active in extending aid to the distressed seamen of the brig Two Sisters, of Newry, James O'HAGAN, master, which came to anchor in this Bay, on Sunday night last, having endured much hardship, and lost two men off the Calf of Man. She was towed into the harbour yesterday morning. The same gentlemen have since generously forwarded a subscription by way of reward to the boatmen, who bravely ventured out in the storm.

The Michaelmas quarter Sessions for the County of Cumberland commenced at Penrith, on Tuesday morning, before F. YATES, Esq. and a full Bench of Magistrates, (twenty-seven,) and ended on Thursday evening.

William BELL, guilty of an assault upon Joseph BLAYLOCK—fined £30, and to find two sureties in £25 each, for good behaviour for two years.
The former Committee for managing the affairs of the intended New Gaol were re-appointed. They are to enter into the necessary contacts with the proprietors of the ground selected for the scite of the new structure, and prepare specifications and estimates for the building, against the Christmas sessions.
The question of removing one of the four sessions to Whitehaven was not re-agitated.
The Lord-Lieutenant was present on Thursday, and inspected the plans of the New Gaol.

JAMES FERGUSON, an itinerant book printer, a native of Scotland, pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing some knives from the shop of Mr. Lancelot HARRISON, of Rickergate. The prisoner came into Court with a written defence, or rather apology, which showed that he had fully prepared himself for the part he had to perform. We had an opportunity of seeing this document—it thus commences:
"Have you any obgection to the Jury? No. I can have none, as the gentelmen is entirely unknown to me; but I supose they are all gentelmen of respectiability and Good reputation or otherwise they would not be selected for that purpos. Are you guilty"—
This question having been put by the Bench, FERGUSON read from his paper as follows: we copy verbatim et literatim:—
"To save the honourable Court the trouble in seeking precognitiance of witness, with penitance and sham I fuly acknoledge my Guilt, and sincerly bege the clemency of the honorable & learned Judges and Court for mitagation of puneshment, and hops you will endulge me so far as to make a few remarks on the subjeck.—I am a native of Scotland and a prenter by business, and being out of employ, and went to Manchester, leeds, hull, and york, and cam to new Castel on my return to Scotland, having failed in obtaing a situation; a man, profesing himself to be a hatter, was shown to bed to me; he got up at twelight in the morning, under pretence of going to the privey, and carried of with him my bundle of cloths and papers, som of them beng of the outmost emportance to me, and dresed himself comfortly in my cloths, saving my coat, and left me old desgreeable things to put on, and carried all my mony with him: he told me the evening befor that he was destained this way, and having got information on the road, I cam up to a man at branton, which came from new Castle—a hatter from Cork, Irland, seeking work; but he was not the man I was in queest of. I came to Carslile in despair of seing him, and totaly destituted of money; and having got a deal of spirites the evening befor, and that morning, from som Country men of my own, and som men which was with me in the service of my king and Country, I was in a state bordring upon insanity—l went into the shope in queeston, not with the intintion of cometing the shamfull deed that I was left to my self by divine and restraing grace to comit, but to ask a smal suport to facilitate my way, and no person being in the shope, I was instantanisly temped and left by god for a moment to commite the shamfull deed. I am arenged befor this Honourable Court and Jurey, the which I sincerly repent, and throw my self upon the mercey of the Judge and Jury. I have served my king and Country a soldier for twenty-tow years in the land service. I received several severe wounds on my head; so that when I drink any considerabl quanaty of spirites, it makes me in a Capacity not altogether Capapal of manageing myself, the which I strive to avoid for the said reason; but unhaply gave way to it on the ocasion for which I am justly cald in question. I enlisted in to the service in September 93, and joined the army under the Comand of His Royal Highnes the Duke of york in august 94. & was with armey on their Retreate through the severe winter of 94 in holand, and embarked from bremen the spring of 95 for England, and embarked July 95 for the west indians; was present under the Comand of Genneral Sir Ralph ABERCROMBIE at the Retaking of the Islands of St. Luciae, St. Vincent, & Grenade in the 1796; and in febuary 1797, took the Island of trenedad under the comand of the above General; in May 97, Disembark on portrico, but did not succeed; came hom in 98, and in 99 went to Holand with Sir Ralf ABERCROMBIE. The army was afterwards comanded by His Royal Highness Duk york in person. The army came hom in terms of negociation; & in 1800, embarked under the Comand of General Sir Ralph ABERCROMBIE with the army destind for egypt; disembarked in march 1801; the 8 day engaged; on the 13th, the General action; on the 21st, Sir Ralph was wounded, and died; continued there till the evacuation of the british army; and was in Scotland, Ireland, and England, till 1807; went on the expedition to Copenheagan, under the comand of General lord CATHCART; at the evacuation of the armey came to england; son after, was ordred on an expadition, under the Comand of Sir John MOOR, to Sweden; continued in gotenburgh Roads for 6 weks; came to speed head; sent out to portugal under the Comand of the said General Sir John MORE, wher we landed prevous to the action of vemierie; the armey was selected and sent to Spain, under the Comand of the said Sir John MOOR. We continued for a time in Salamanca, afterwards advanced upon Madred by Bennevente, in advance of which we wer nearly surounded, & comenced that fattal retreat to Coruna, where we engaged and defetated the enemy with the loss of our Comander-in-chief, and was obliged to mak a preciped embarkation, and sail for england in Jany 1809. Same year, went on the expodicion to flusing, under the Comand of the Earel of Chatham; came to england at the evacuation of the troops from walcheren; and the sam yeare, in december, sent out to lisborn, from whence we were ordered to cadez, under the Comand of General GRAHAM, where we was closely beseged till we were Cald to portugal the august following, upon the advance of a french army under MESINA upon portugal, till we gaind the Army under the Comand of lord wellington, by forced Marches, on the Hights of besaca, the day befor the action which took place there; lay at toresvedos lines till the enmy retread next springe, 1811. I shall not be too tedious. Was present at fontes de horo; at storming of Cuded rodridgo and Badegoce; at the Battel of Salamanca, siege of Bargos, battel of victorie, and at the afars that took place on the pyrenees, and near pampeluna; and at the storming of the french lines, front of Jeandeluce, alonge the foot of the pyreenes, and charging the enmy into Bayone; and was enged on the 9, & 10, & 13 december, 1813, when the enmeny salied out from bayone; was present in all the afaires that toak place on the march through france, ortes, &c. till we engeaged the emeny on the hights befor toulouse, which we defeated the enmy befor we knew of BONOPARTE's abdication. In this servis I was 5 times wounded. Soon after the British armey evocated france, and I was discharged 17th of December, 1814, and I have lived in Scotland with my famely; I have a wife and 3 of a famely, and on my industry depends theere suport; neither is anny of them able to do for themselves, being under 10 years of age. Therefor I hope that my longe and ardeous service in behalf of my Gracious King and Country—wherein, as an endividual, with my Companions in arms, headed by brave and meritorious Comanders, has maintaind the hazzardious Contest which at last terminated favourable and honourable to the british arms, and has brought our renound kingdom to rank high among the nations of urope; therefore, I hope, you will be gracisly pleased to sympathise with a faithful servand of my king and Country, who has permiscusly falen into a Crime by a sudent temtation, through my wants, and the agitaion of mind, together wiih the state of provaty I was then in, and I do assur you, my honourable Judges, not in the least habitualy inclind; therefor I throw Myself upon the Gracious Mercy and Clemancey, hoping you will be pleased to mitigat my sentance as your superior knowledge and high learing & station deems proper. I never was befor anny judges or magistrates for the liek before. I hope you will excuse this Iliterate pramble. I am your Honours humble and pennitent prisinar at the bare."
He was sentenced to two months' imprisonment in the Carlisle House of Correction.
John CROPP, John BURN, and Thomas THORNTON, the three soldiers of the 66th regt., lately committed for riot, and assaulting (stabbing with a bayonet) an aged woman, named Margaret ROUTLEDGE, in Finkle-street, as mentioned in our paper at the time, were discharged, there being no prosecution. At the period of committal, Margaret ROUTLEDGE was too ill to be bound over to prosecute, and thus these men most probably escaped conviction and consequent punishment. We hope they will in future have a better sense of duty as soldiers, and more respect for the lives of their fellow-subjects. The offence with which they were charged, with other irregularities of some of their comrades, led to the removal of the detachment of which they formed a part.

The Michaelmas Quarter Sessions for the City and Liberties of Carlisle, were holden at the Town-Hall, on Monday, before Wm. HODGSON, Esq. Mayor, and a Bench of Aldermen. Mr. Thomas HUDSON was foreman of the Grand Jury.
The King on the prosecution of Jane SHEPHERD, v. RENNIE.—This was a case of assault; the defendant is a clock and watch maker in Scotch-street; the prosecutrix is the wife of a person recently in his employment. She had no professional adviser, and the Mayor was obliged to question the witnesses.
Jane SHEPHERD deposed that in May last, she lived in Hutton's Lane, Scotch-street, Carlisle, her husband being then in the defendant's employment. A Mrs. M'LEOWNAM came to her and inquired if she would let her room? She replied in the negative. Soon after, RENNIE put a padlock upon her door, and witness took it off; he then came himself; she just put her hand upon his shoulder, and asked him what business he had there, when he struck her six or seven times; he hit her on the left breast, which was black six or seven weeks afterwards. He pushed her out of doors; she went in again, and he then tore the cap from her head, and again thrust her out. She once more went in, and he took her by the neck, —— for a ——, and swore he would murder her. As she still persisted in going in, he kicked her in the left side, and knocked her down; she then went and obtained a warrant against him. On her cross-examination, she admitted that she took hold of the frill of his shirt, but did nor tear it away before he struck her; she did not strike him; neither did she say to Ann M'LEOWNAM that she would keep the room as long as she could, and never pay any rent.
Mary ATKINSON saw the Defendant have hold of SHEPHERD by the neck, and she had hold of him by the breast. She heard a noise a little before; RENNIE desired SHEPHERD to go out of the house; she replied that the house was her's, and she would remain in it.
This was the case for the prosecution. Mr. DIXON, solicitor, appeared in behalf of the Defendant.
Ann M'LEOWNAM was called. She said she took a room of the prosecutrix four or five days before Whitsuntide, and was to pay 1s. 6d. per week for it. SHEPHERD told her the door was nailed, because RENNIE had taken the lock off. Witness said she would go to RENNIE and endeavour to get the key of him; SHEPHERD replied, that witness might take the nail out of the door, and go in as soon as she chose. Witness then took the nail out, made a fire in the room, and went to RENNIE, and requested him to put a lock upon the door. There was nothing but a little straw in the room; SHEPHERD told her, that if she would pay the rent weekly she should have it, but not if she gave it up to RENNIE, to whom she would never pay any rent. Witness did not take the room on RENNIE's account; she was not friendly with him.
Charles MACARTNEY went with the defendant to a room occupied by the prosecutor. RENNIE desired her to go out; she said she would not, and caught hold of him by the breast, struck him over the face, and kept hold of his shirt frill until she tore it away. A struggle ensued; RENNIE put his arms down by his side, and desired prosecutrix to let him go; and requesting witness to notice that they had a struggle, he got her to the door.—Cross-examined, MACARTNEY said he did not see Defendant strike her: he might have struck her, but witness did not see him do it. He saw Mrs. M'LEOWNAM three hours afterwards in the room, and he subsequently saw her at RENNIE's, desiring him to put a lock upon the door.
The Jury found the defendant Guilty; but as the matter was immediately compromised, the Court did not deem it necessary to pass any sentence. RENNIE paid defendant £3, and was then discharged.
