LONDON, JULY 18, 1815.

It is remarkable, that the last division of French prisoners left Dartmoor depot when the first party of American prisoners were marched in. The French then gave the Americans three huzzas, by way of welcome to their new abode. On Saturday last the first division of French prisoners arrived at Dartmoor from Ostend, and were received by the last American division of that prison with the retort courteous; the latter gave three hearty cheers. It is likewise worthy of notice, that the first division of French prisoners arrived at Dartmoor depot from Ostend exactly on that day at twelvemonths, when the last division quitted it to return to France, in 1814.
Mr. O'Connell and Mr. O'Gorman held their Catholic Aggregate Meeting in Dublin, on the 4th instant, when it was resolved again to present the Petition before rejected, to Parliament early in the next Session.
On Sunday week as Mr. Phillips, the Counsel for Mr. Guthrie, was passing near Merrion-square, Dublin, he was suddenly assaulted by a Lady elegant dressed, who proved to be Mrs.G. who struck him several times, exclaiming, 'You have ruined an innocent man." She then tore a printed trial, which she held in her hand, into a thousand pieces, and scattered it in all directions, declaring that she came from England for the purpose, and stepping into an elegant carriage drove off.

Friday and Saturday's Posts.

About nine o'clock on Friday night, the neighbourhood of the Minories was thrown into the utmost terror and alarm, by the breaking out of a fire in the house of Mr. Ray, gun-smith, whose premises are situated among a range of buildings between the Cresent and American square. The flames spread with alarming rapidity, and having communicated to the adjoining premises, and oil warehouse, and where we understand a considerable quantity of turpentine was lodged, the fire at once established itself, and in a short time founds its devouring way to the whole range of building, as far as the old city wall, and nearly to Trinity-House. About ten o'clock, the fire having reached the concern of Mr. Shenstone, where unfortunately some powder had been deposited :- two explosions took place, and four persons, in the act of breaking in the windows of the house, were dreadfully hurt.- Two of these persons received a blast of powder in the face, and were knocked senseless among the tumbling bricks and timber. They were, however, immediately taken out, and conveyed to the hospital. One man only, we understand is in a dangerous state.- The fire burned with incredible fury for several hours, and notwithstanding the persevering exertions of the firemen, inhabitants, and several other persons, it was not entirely subdued until a late hour on Saturday morning, where no less that 17 houses was reduced to a heap of ashes. These were principally warehouses, and among them we notice that of Sir Charles Flower, Bart whose papers, books, and a vast quantity of property was consumed in this dreadful conflagration. Mr. Ray's house was insured, and his stock for 5000.

LONDON, July 20.

Last week was discovered in the garden of John Scholfield, Esq at Horbury, Yorkshire, attendant from the bough of a currant bush a singular wasps nest.- It was formed something like an acorn, the upper part of the cap serving for a sort of penthouse to the main body of the nest below. The entrance for the yellow breached inmates, was at the extremity of the acorn.- About three years ago a similar nest was taken from the branch of a gooseberry bush, growing in a garden at St. John's Place, Wakefield. Such nests are, we understand, the work of a peculiar species of wasp, but rarely seen in England, but very common in some parts of America.

Dreadful Explosion.

On Friday night, about nine o'clock, the neighbourhood of Spitalfields was thrown into universal terror by an explosion in the house of Mr. Lichileau, in John-street, Brown-street. This was almost instantly succeeded by another, and one universal blaze was spread over the whole neighbourhood. The unhappy proprietor carried on the business of a hair-dresser, but was more generally known as a manufacturer of fire works. In his house, unfortunately were deposited several barrels of gunpowder, which had exploded. How the fire had communicated is not yet ascertained, and Mr. Lichileau had but a few moments returned from a walk with his wife, with whom, and his family, he was just sitting down to supper when the dreadful event took place. The effects in his house were truly heartrending; it was literally blown up from its foundation, and all its inmates buried in the ruins. These consisted of six or eight persons namely, Mr. Lichileau, his wife and sister, two other females, servants, a Mr. Oldham, and it is feared some others. In the house adjoining also on either side, three or four more perished, and a number of persons in the surrounding neighbourhood were dreadfully hurt by pieces of glass, brick, timber, and other articles falling upon them; or being forced into the windows by the effects of the explosion. Huge beams of timber were tossed into the air, others carried an incredible distance over the tops of houses, whole not less than from two to three hundred habitations have been shook and shattered in a most frightful degree. The house of Mr.Lichileau was situate within two doors of the brewery of Trueman and Hanbury, and within four of Brown-street, where there is a meeting of three others, and such was the effect of these dreadful explosions, that it not only consumed the two adjoining houses, but nearly destroyed four others, and injured, as already described, some hundreds, forcing itself round the corners, and spreading wide destruction down the streets; the whole exhibiting a terrible picture of havoc and destruction - windows broken, window-frames smashed and forced in; doors knocked from the hinges, and even furniture displaced, and shattered to pieces ! In addition to the loss of lives in the houses mentioned, a child sitting opposite to the house where the fire commenced, was killed by the explosion. The engines continued to play upon the ruins on Saturday, while at each house some of the wretched victims who had fallen were discovered, and dragged forth in a mutilated state. At three o'clock the remains of Mrs. Lichileau, her sister, and that of a female servant, had been taken out, and deposited in the bone-house of Spital-fields church.

To the English Admiral off Rochefort.

WE have just received the Paris Papers of Tuesday last. All the rumours, doubts, and anxieties that have so long prevailed respecting the Destination of Buonaparte are now at an end. The following most important intelligence is given in the Moniteur, in such an official shape that no doubt can now be entertained of its truth :-
"Paris, July 18, 1815,
"Measures have been taken for preventing the escape of Buonaparte; it will be seen from the following Extract of a Letter from the Maritime Prefect of Rochefort to the Minister of Marine, that the result has been such as there was reason to hope for."

"Rochefort, July 15, 10 o'clock p.m.
"For the purpose of executing the orders of your Excellency, I went on board my boat accompanied by Baron Richard, Prefect of the Lower Charente. The report of the roads of the 14th had not then reached me. I was informed by Captain Philibert, commanding the Amphitrite Frigate, that Buonaparte had embarked in the Epervier brig, with a Flag of Truce, determined to himself up to the English Cruizers.
"In fact, at the break of day, we saw him manoeuvring for the purpose of coming up to the English ship Belerephon, commanded by Captain Maitland, who seeing that Buonaparte was directing his course towards him, raised the White Flag at the mizen mast head.
"Buonaparte was received on board the English ship, as well as the persons belonging to his suite. The officer whom I left on the look-out informs me of this important news, which General Baker, who arrived a few minutes afterwards, fully confirmed.
"Captain of the Navy, and Maritime Prefect."

Deplorable Accident in Leicestershire.

Leicester, July 15. - Last night a dreadful catastrophe occurred.- Two coaches that run from Hinckley to Leicester has set out about 6 o'clock in the evening. The first having descended the hill that leads from Leicester, was obliged to stop to repair the harness. The other coachman from the top of the hill saw the accident, and seized the moment to give his antagonist the go by, and immediately flogged his horses into a gallop down the hill. The horse contrived to keep on their legs, but in the midst of their speed took fright as something lying on the road, and became so unmanageable in the hands of a drunken coachman that, in their sweep to avoid the object of alarm, the driver could not recover them so as to clear the post of the turnpike gate at the bottom of the hill, and the velocity was so great that in an instant the coach was split into two, and by the tremendous shock three persons were dashed to pieces and instantly expired, and two others survived but a few hours afterwards in the greatest agony; four were carried away in chaises for surgical aid with fractured limbs, and two that were in the dicky behind were thrown with that part of the coach a great distance, and not much hurt by falling into the hedge. The coachman fell a victim to his fury and madness, but society has to lament the death of Miss Page, an amiable young Quaker lady and her companion, who were returning from a visit in Warwickshire; the other two unfortunates are an officer's servant and a person of Hinckley.
The coachman has left a large family to lament his loss. A coroner's inquest was held on the bodies, at the Turnpike house, on Saturday last - Verdict - Accidental Deaths, occasioned by the breaking of the horses reins.

The town of Penzance was thrown into the greatest confusion, on Saturday se'nnight, by the following occurrence;- Some persons in the employment of Mr. Holmes, shipwright, of that place, who had been heating some plank, in order to bend it, under a shed belonging to a cellar near the quay, in which were some straw, and several barrels of pitch, tar, &c. went to dinner without using the necessary precautions to prevent the fire from communicating to these combustibles. Soon after they had left the place, the cellar was observed to be on fire, and as it was known that there were upwards of two tons of gunpowder in an adjoining cellar, belonging to J. Batter, Esq. [?] the consternation of the inhabitants became excessive; on every side were seen flying persons of all ages, who had abandoned their property, in the apprehension of immediate destruction; whilst the young, the sick, the aged, and the bed ridden, were borne by their friends into the fields, to avoid the terrific effects of the expected explosion. Fortunately by the intrepidity of some seamen in the port, assisted by a number of the inhabitants, the dreadful calamity was averted.

John Millard for stealing 1cwt of gunpowder, the property of His Majesty, and Mr. Horton (who was, from the year 1807 till April last, assistant-quarter-master at the army depot in the Isle of Wight, and, as such, had the expenditure of several sums of the public money) for having, by a fraudulent account, obtained in one instance 100 more than he had expended; were sentenced to seven years transportation. Mr. Graham, chief clerk of the Paymaster's office, was found guilty of a conspiracy with Horton, in effecting various frauds.
At these Assizes was tried the following cause, peculiarly interesting to Bankers :
Grant and others v. Alexander- The question was, as to the legality of bankers charging the interest on monies advanced, and commission on business done, half yearly, placing the same to the debit of their customers account, and including such interest as part of the principal for the ensuing half year, on the termination of which the interest was charged on that sum. The Counsel for the defendant argued, that interest upon interest was illegal, and that the commission charged by Messrs Grant and Co. was exorbitant; but it was held that it was not interest upon interest, and as to commission it was necessary that a reasonable compensation for transacting the business in question should be made, and that the bankers ought to be paid for the trouble and expence they were put to. The Jury found a verdict for the plaintiff, for the amount of the balance due from Mr. Alexander.

We understood, there are no less than 40 candidates for the vacant mastership of the Leeds Free Grammar School.
Orders have been recently issued to allow Inn-keepers to charge for men on their march, 1s.3d per day Cavalry, and 1s.5d a day for Infantry.

THE feelings of Humanity, and the Gratitude we owe for the elevated rank this Country holds through the lustre of her arms, most eminently displayed by the late Glorious Achievement at Waterloo, must have powerful and irresistible claims upon the benevolence of Britons, in mitigating the sufferings which attended that memorable conflict.
The Inhabitants of the Towns and Neighbourhood of Manchester and Salford are, no doubt, fully impressed with these sentiments, and we therefore beg you will be pleased to appoint an early Public Meeting, for the purpose of promoting a Subscription towards relieving the British Soldiers wounded, and the Families of those Heroes who so nobly fell on that splendid occasion, under the command of the renowned Field Marshal His Grace of Wellington.
