Sunday and Tuesday's Posts.
LONDON, March 11

Twenty-five American seamen were discharged on Friday, at Portsmouth.- An order, we understand, has been issued, to discharge all American subjects from our ships.

Error in Punctuation.-By the omission of a comma, in the catalogue of a sale of live stock, the following curious passage occurred, viz. one cow lately calved two cows in calf, one barren cow, one heifer, a yearling calf, and three tons of hay, also several fixtures, a boiler, and numerous other articles of household-furniture.

Fires. - A very alarming fire broke out on Friday, soon after one o'clock, in the shop belonging to an organ-builder, in Tottenham-court-road. The fire was first discovered in the work-shop, which was situate in the middle of Southampton-court, and in a few minutes three houses in the court were also in flames. The utmost consternation prevailed in the neighbourhood, and, from the narrowness of the court, serious apprehensions were entertained for the safety of the numerous inhabitants, who with difficulty escaped, leaving their property behind them. The cries of the women and children, which were truly distressing, were heightened by a mother who resided in the court, and had left a child, three years old, in her house, during a momentary absence: the house in which it was, was then on fire in all parts, but the feelings of the mother induced her to risk her life for its salvation; she braved all dangers, entered the house, and at length succeeded in rescuing the child, which was enveloped in flames. It was much scorched, but not so as to deprive it of life. The fire was completely got under by three o'clock.
And about eight o'clock on Saturday evening, another alarming fire broke out in the house of Messrs. Grafton and Field, corn-chandlers, No.6, Shoreditch. It was discovered to burst forth from the top part of the back house, which was filled with straw. It was supposed to be occasioned by the snuff of a candle, which a boy had carelessly left. About nine o'clock, the fire made a most awful appearance, having communicated to a large malt-house and two stables, all in a confined court, with no entrance but a small passage, called Magpye-alley. The Volunteers arrived with the greatest alacrity, and kept off the several depredators that usually attend such places. The sight at this time was truly terrific, no less than four houses in flames, Mr.Kirvell's press-house having caught fire, in addition to those already mentioned. For some time after the engines arrived they were useless, for want of water; but afterwards, being well manned and supplied, the flames were prevented from extending, and the house of Mr.Webb, in Blossom-street, and some other houses, were preserved, though damaged. About twelve o'clock the four houses fell in with a dreadful crash. Happily no lives were lost.

Wednesday and Thursday's Posts.

Mr.Beatty, surgeon of the Victory, has had the ball, which was the instrument of death of Lord Nelson, set in gold and crystals. The fringe of the epaulette is yet hanging to it. He has refused an offer of 2000 guineas for it.

A few days since was sold by Mr. Samuel Wellment, of Wilton, near Taunton; to Messrs. England & Slocombe, of Exeter, an extraordinary heifer, for 100 guineas. The heifer is one of a twin, but six years old, has calved thrice, and had twins each time. Her sister is in the possession of Mr.Wellment, and has had twins twice.

A farmer's servant in the neighbourhood of Hailsham, a few days ago, fixed a slip chain to the tounge of one of his master's horse's, and actually forced it out of the animal's mouth !

A daring robbery, a few nights since, was committed in the house of Mr.Preston, a farmer, in the parish of Warbleton, in the county of Sussex. A knock was given at .the door, which was answered by the servant girl: Mr. P. hearing her letting some people in, went into the passage to see who they were, when he was instantly seized by two men, with their faces blacked, who knocked him down, and beat him in a most inhuman manner with bludgeons; and presenting a pistol to him, swore they would blow his brains out, if he made the least resistance. They then tied his hands together, and got him upon his legs. and insisted that he should shew them where his property was, which he was obliged, very reluctantly, to agree to. One of the villains accompanied him to his bed-room, and the other remained down stairs. On Mr.P's reaching his bed-room, he desired the robber who accompanied him to take a key out of his pocket, and directed him which drawer to open, where he found upwards of 30 in Bank of England and Hasting Notes.The robber told him he knew that was not all the money he had got in the house :Mr.P. then was obliged to tell him where he would find sixteen guineas. Mr.P. bleeding very much, from the wounds he had received on his head with the bludgeons, got a bottle of brandy to wash them with, and after he had taken a little, the villains took the rest; and after refreshing themselves with some ale and bread and cheese, they made their escape.

The fall or snow was so heavy in Kent; on Wednesday, that the Dover coach was on Thursday greatly retarded in its progress to town Upon its arrival at Barham Downs, a complete stop took place, the snow being there of the amazing depth of ten feet. The mail was taken out of the coach, and forwarded by a messenger, on horseback, to town, where it did not arrive until two-o'clock. A great number of men were collected on Barham Downs who cut a passage through the snow for the coach, and enabled it to continue its journey. It did not arrive in London until six o'clock at night.

Wellingborough, 15th March, 1806.

AT a General Meeting of MALTSTERS and MAKERS of MALT, residing within the BOROUGH and COUNTY of HUNTINGDON, held at the FOUNTAIN INN, in HUNTINGDON, on TUESDAY the 11th Day of MARCH, 1806, in order to take into Consideration the Propriety of petitioning Parliament for the Repeal of the 30th and 33d Sections of the Act of 42d of Geo. 3d, Chap. 38th, prohibiting the watering or sprinkling Grain making into Malt upon the Floor; and also for removing the Doubts at present entertained concerning the Right of appealing to the Justices in Quarter-Sessions from Convictions by two Magistrates;
(Mr. WM. HERBERT in the Chair);

It was unanimously agreed,

That the Operation of the above Clauses has been found by Experience to be productive of the most injurious Consequences to the Manufacture of Malt, and to subject the fair Trader to great Difficulties and Hardships, without any Advantage to the Revenue; and that the most serious and oppressive Grievances to the Manufacturers of Malt arise from the Facilities and Temptations which the first-mentioned Clause affords for unfounded and vexatious Prosecutions.
That the naturally moist Appearance of the Grain upon the Floor, for several Days after being thrown from the Cistern, added to the Fact of the Officers participating in the Penalties, enables and encourages such as are either ignorant of the Process, or inclined to take undue Advantages by availing themselves of the particular Stage of Operation, when such natural Appearances may seem to justify Suspicion, to exhibit informations against the Maltsters, from which no Vigilance can guard nor no Innocence protect him; upon which Convictions are accustomed to be founded on Matter of Opinion only, and from which no Appeal is to be obtained; and these vexatious and groundless Informations have of late become so frequent from the Facility with which Charges of this Description can be established, as to amount to a most grievous Evil, and to become a Source of the most serious Alarm.
That the foregoing Hardships are considerably aggravated by the Doubts which are entertained concerning the Right of appealing from Convictions under the above Act, to the Justices assembled at the General Quarter-Sessions of the Peace, a Privilege extended to all other Offences relating to the Duties on Malt; and from which as to this particular Offence, upon which Decisions for the Reasons above stated must be so peculiarly liable to Error, this Meeting cannot conceive it was the Intention of the Legislature to exclude them.
And that, to enable us to obtain Redress of the Grievances produced by the said Clauses, a Petition be presented to the Honourable the House of Commons, setting forth the same, and praying for such Relief as they in their Wisdom shall think fit to grant.
And a Petition having been prepared and read,

Resolved unanimously,

That the said Petition is approved by the Meeting, and that the same be signed by each Person present, and be forthwith sent to such Maltsters and Makers of Malt as have not been able to attend at this Meeting, for their respective Signatures.
That a Subscription be immediately entered into for the Purpose of raising a Fund to provide for the Expences which may arise in the Progress of this Business; and that the Chairman be appointed Treasurer.
That the following Gentlemen who composed this Meeting, or any three of them, be a Committee for managing the said Fund and forwarding the Purposes of the same, viz. Mr. Herbert, Mr. Cowling, Messrs. Fowlers, Mr. Osborne, Mr. Veasey, Mr. Lindsell, Mr. Charles Walker, Mr. John Baker, Mr.Fordham, and Mr. John Pumfrett; and that they be empowered to meet arid adjourn from Time to Time, and to take such Measures as they shall deem proper and necessary for carrying into Effect the objects of the foregoing Resolutions.
That Messrs. Maule & Sweeting, of Huntingdon, be appointed Solicitors, for rendering such Professional Assistance to the Committee as may be necessary in the Course of this Business.
That the above Resolutions be signed by the Chairman, and advertised in the Cambridge, Stamford, and Northampton Papers, and the Sun and Courier.

Resolved unanimously,
That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to the Chairman for his Attention to the Business of the Day, and for his Conduct in the Chair.
