Weymouth, Oct.25.

We are happy to state that a company is formed for the purpose of lighting this town with gas, and that their plan and proposals will be submitted on Monday next to the Trustees of the Paving and Lighting Act.

On Saturday last died, after a long illness, aged 30, Mr.Wm.Steele, wine merchant, of this town.

Monday, October 27, 1817.

It is now positively stated that the Queen's departure from Windsor, on her visit to Bath, will take place on Monday next, and that she will be accompanied by the Princess Elizabeth only. Her Majesty, it is said, will quit Windsor at seven in the morning. The only place for which she will stop for refreshment will be Marlborough, and it is expected that the city of Bath will be honoured by the Royal arrival about six in the evening of the same day .- A meeting of the police commissioners of Bathwick was convened on Thursday, in consequence of it being announced that that parish is to be honoured by the Queen's residence in it, when a committee was nominated to arrange the best means of giving increased lustre to the buildings of the parish, and to appoint six day constables, distinguished by appropriate liveries, with additional labourers, to regulate the streets, and to perform other duties during her Majesty's stay.- A superb box, with a convenient anti-room, is preparing at the Bath theatre for the accommodation of the illustrious visitors expected in that city.

The annual meeting of the Salisbury Diocesan and District Committee for South Wilts, in aid of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, was numerously and respectably attended on Friday the 17th instant. The Bishop of Salisbury, as President, having taken the chair, and the usual routine business having been gone through, the report was read by the Secretary. It gave a very satisfactory and consolitary account both of the Society's and the Committee's exertions, the progressive increase of the expenditure and the enlarged distribution of books. It stated that the demand upon the funds of the Society must be proportionably increased in consequence of the great additional number of persons capable of reading, and represented the necessity of continued exertion and continued zeal. It particularly noticed how desirable parochial subscriptions were, because, by the payment of a sum comparatively trifling on the part of the individual, a fund was provided for the distribution of religious tracts, as well as bibles, prayer books, and testaments to the indigent and ignorant. But no part of the report was calculated to give more general pleasure than the circumstances of many parishes having gratuitously been supplied with books, in consequence of several subscribers declining to apply for their proportion of books, and of the large increase in the articles distributed, amounting in the year to 3966. After the reading of the report, various resolutions were moved and passed, the different officers were re-elected, and thanks were unanimously voted to the Rev.Wm.Parker, Assistant Secretary to the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, for his ready assistance and attention to the concerns of the Committee, and to the Worshipful the Mayor of Salisbury, for his obliging grant of the Council Chamber for the accommodation of the Committee at their different meetings.- After the Lord Bishop had left the chair, the thanks of the meeting were unanimously voted to his Lordship for his great attention to the business of the day.- A subscription was immediately commenced for the year, beginning Sept.29, 1817, and continues to be received by the persons and the places mentioned in the advertisement.

On Thursday last a meeting was held at Chippenham, for the purpose of establishing a District Committee in aid of the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge. Previous to the meeting, a sermon was preached at the Church by the Rev.W.L.Bowles, on a most appropriate text from the 2d Epistle of St.Paul to Timothy, chap.III, verse 15th : "And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith, which is Christ Jesus." It would be unnecessary to expatiate on the merits of a discourse, written an delivered by so eminent a character; it will suffice to say, that it had a most impressive effect on a large congregation, among whom were almost all the Clergy of that part of the country, and many of the respectable families of the neighbourhood. During divine service, an anthem was exquisitely sung by Miss Coombs and Mr.Ball from the Salisbury Cathedral; after the sermon a solo anthem was sung by Miss Coombs with great effect. The collection at the doors after the service was considerable. The meeting then took place, (R.Humphrys, Esq, in the chair) when a series of appropriate resolutions were carried unanimously.

The Autumnal Ploughing Match of the Wiltshire Society for the Encouragement of Agriculture, &c. took place at Market Lavington on Wednesday last, and several ploughs started for the premiums offered by the society in the different classes. In the 1st class, for two horses, without a driver, the first premium was awarded to Thomas Perrett, a servant of Mr.Fowle; the 2d to James Draper, a servant of Wm.Tinker, Esq.; and the 3d to Edw.Ellis, a servant to Mr.C.Garrett.- In the 2d class, for two oxen, without a driver, there were no competitors.- In the 3d class, for three horses or four oxen, with a driver, the first premium was awarded to Samuel Mead, the 2d to Thos.Godden, and the 3d to James Sainsbury, all servants of Mr.Fowle, of Market Lavington.- The meeting was respectably attended by a large party of friends and members of the society, who favored the committee with their company at dinner, and the evening was spent in a manner highly gratifying to all present.

A numerous and respectable meeting was held at the George Inn, Castle Cary, on Monday last, when it was resolved to establish a Savings Bank for the benefit of the towns of Shepton Mallet, Castle Cary, Bruton, and Wincanton, with the surrounding villages, and of any other towns or districts wishing to partake of the advantages which such an institution offers. Liberal donations for defraying the first expenses of the establishment were immediately subscribed by the Earl of Ilchester, Sir R.C.Hoare, Bart., W.Dickinson, Esq. M.P. &c.

Extraordinary Death.
On the 16th Bow Wood, the seat of the Marquis of Lansdowne, Mr.Broad, for nearly 40 years steward to the Marquis's family. His death was occasioned by a circumstance no less remarkable than melancholy : being out in the Park on the day preceding with a party of ladies and gentlemen, he found a dead adder, which he took up in his hand, and opened its mouth to shew the party where the poison on the creature lay : in doing which, however, the subtile matter communicated to a cut in one of his fingers. On the next morning Mr.B was found dead in his bed with every indication of his having died from the effects of the poison, the arm being much inflamed.

Melancholy Shipwreck
The William and Mary packet, Capt.Manley, sailed from Bristol for Waterford on Thursday evening at eight o'clock, and about eleven she struck on the Wolves Rock, between Pennarth and Cardiff.

Mr.B himself a fine young man, is reported to be among the saved. They had been spending the summer at Southampton, where they parted with another sister, who was to sail for Ireland from Holyhead.

The shop of Mr.Wm.Rowden, wheelwright, in Fisherton, near this city, was broken open on Tuesday night last, and robbed of various tools and implements. A quantity of wearing apparel, &c. was also stolen from the back kitchen.

A good Ordinary on Tuesday, at half-past one o'clock.

John Hibberd, of New-street, Salisbury, Chimney Sweeper, grateful to his numerous Employers in Town and Country for the support and encouragement he has received during the many years he has been in Business, regrets that he is under the necessity of cautioning them against the conduct of William Castleman, lately in his employ, and who after having persuaded his Boys to leave his service, used every motive he could devise to prevent their return, although to procure their return to Hibberd's service was the ostensible object of Castleman's first going in pursuit of them. Having failed in his attempts to keep the boys any longer from their duty, he is now attempting to persuade Hibberd's Customers that he is still in his employ, and is still acting as his Foreman. It is against this species of deception that he now cautions his friends and the public. Hibberd assures them that he has no connection in business with Castleman, that he is not in his employ, and further assures them that while they continue to favour him with their orders, they shall be promptly attended to and diligently executed.
