Monday, November 17, 1817.
The day of the funeral of her late Royal Highness will be observed in this city with the solemnity suitable to the occasion. Our readers will see, in a subsequent column, an advertisement from our Mayor and Magistrates on the subject.
The Vicar, Churchwardens, and principal inhabitants of Calne, intend to observe the day appointed for the funeral of the much and ever-to-be-lamented Princess Charlotte of Wales
, with that solemnity so justly due to that amiable and illustrious Personage, by attending Divine Service, and by a total suspension of business.
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester
arrived in this city at about eight o'clock on Sunday evening the 9th instant, on their return from Weymouth to London. Their Royal Highnesses were received at the Episcopal Palace in the Close by our venerable Lord Bishop, with the respect due to their illustrious rank, and with all that sympathy and condolence of which every member of our Royal family is at present so much in need. After taking refreshments at the Palace, and remaining there about two hours, their Royal Highnesses proceeded on their journey to town.
Previous to the Queen's departure from Bath her Majesty gave orders for numerous donations to be issued to the different charities. To the Bath Hospital the Queen sent £100 and the Princess Elizabeth
£50. To the Casualty Hospital her Majesty sent £50 and her Royal Highness £20. The Duke of Clarence
had, by order of the Queen, subscribed £50 to the balls at the Upper Rooms. She had promised her patronage to Ashe's
Concerts, and had announced her intention to give a new organ to Bathwick Church. The Corporation of Bath had presented the freedom of the city to her in a magnificent gold box; and the Corporation of Bristol were on the eve of setting off to Bath, to testify the loyal feelings of that city, and to solicit the honour of a royal visit.
In Bath every testimony of heartfelt sorrow for our national loss continues to be respectfully observed;- amusements and festivities of all kinds, public and private, have been suspended; and every shop remains half closed.
It affords us some consolation, amid the surrounding gloom, to hope that the good effects of our genial springs may be still experienced by our gracious Queen. The precise day for her Majesty's return does not appear to be fixed; but we understand from good authority, that it will be a very early period after the interment of the lamented Princess.- Bath Herald.
Henry Emly, Esq.
was on Wednesday last sworn into the office of Mayor of this city. The entertainment usually given on such occasions to be members of the Corporation and to the nobility, clergy, and gentry of the city, close, and vicinity, was postponed, on account of the mournful event now so deeply deplored by the nation at large.
The noblemen and gentlemen of the Harmonic Society in Bath, on hearing the melancholy tidings of Princess Charlotte's
death, immediately assembled, and adjourned their meetings one month.
On Sunday the 9th instant, the ears of the musical, and the hearts of the devout, were in no ordinary degree delighted and edified on the opening of a new organ in Westbury Church, in this county. The instrument was pronounced, by acknowledged judges, to have, for sweetness and melody of tones, no superior in the west of England. The accompaniment of a well selected choir was admirably chaste and impressive. The sermon in the morning was preached by that eminent divine the Rev.W.L.Bowles
, prebendary of Salisbury Cathedral, in which he gave luminous historical details of the early introduction, and continued use and advantage (though at certain periods the misuse also) of that majestic instrument, the organ, in the Christian Church; and that in the evening was delivered by the Rev.James Beesly, A.M.
which was a composition, treating the subject from a practical view, of great appropriate excellence. Both discourses appeared to make a deep beneficial impression on the minds of the attentative audience. Though the Church at each service was crowded to excess, yet the most perfect order and decorum were observed.

Wantage new Corn-Market commenced auspiciously on Saturday the 1st instant : a great quantity of corn was brought for sale, and upwards of 100 loads of wheat, besides a great quantity of barley and beans, were sold. More than 130 opulent farmers and dealers dined on the occasion at the Bear inn, T.Goodlake, Esq.
presiding, when the advantages of a pitched market were discussed and acknowledged by all present. When the local situation in Wantage is considered, there appears to be little doubt but that this will become a very considerable Corn Market, possessing, as it does, the advantage of water carriage by the Wilts and Berks Canal. We understand that the Canal Company have granted the use of their warehouse at Wantage to such as choose to deposit grain therein, free from all rates and duties, and that the Lord of the Manor has declared his intention not to demand any toll for corn sold in the market for the first two years from its establishment.

A rick of hay belonging to Mr.Henry Macey
, at Teffont Magna, was on the night of the 5th inst. wilfully set fire to and burnt; there is hope however that the handsome reward of £25 (which it may be seen by an advertisement is offered) will have the desired effect of bringing to justice the malignant offender or offenders.
A Caution to the Public
On the evening of the 9th of November, being Blandford fair day, a man about 5 feet 10 inches high, with a white shag great coat, light spotted waistcoat, leather knee tops, and boots, went to Mr.Park's
stable, Portman's Arms, ordered the boy to bring out a horse he pointed to from the stable, gave him sixpence, mounted, and rode away. He is supposed to be a stranger, for he went into a field adjoining the east end of the town, the hurdles being up for the sheep, and could not find his way out again without passing the stable. The horse was found in the field the next morning; but the saddle, which was almost new, with plated stirrups, and a common double reined and bitted bridle, were taken away.

On Tuesday morning last, a man, who had some shoes to be made at the house of Mr.Chennil
, shoemaker, at Godalmin, Surrey, went to enquire if they were done. On opening the door, the first object that caught his eyes was Mr.Chennil's
housekeeper lying dead on the kitchen floor, with her throat cut. Terrified at the sight, he called in some neighbours; they proceeded up stairs, and there they were almost transfixed with horror on seeing Mr.Chennil
on the floor a shocking spectacle, his head nearly severed from the body; his body bruised in various parts, which shewed that he must have had a severe struggle with the murderer. He was quite cold, which gave reason to suppose that the inhuman murders were committed on the preceding night. Upon a further examination of the body of the housekeeper, it was found that her skull was fractured; a hammer that was found on the ground, which Mr.Chennil
used in his business, appeared to have been the instrument with which the blow was given to her, as the face of it corresponded exactly with the indentation in the skull. Information was given to the Magistrates in the neighbourhood immediately, of the dreadful transaction, and they with great promptness caused an immediate investigation to take place. Upon enquiry it was found, that the son of Mr.Chennil
, who is married, and lived a considerable distance from his father's house, was in the neighbourhood of his father's house on the night when the murder was committed. The Magistrates had him apprehended immediately, and brought before them for examination, when it appeared, that on Monday night the prisoner was drinking at a public-house at a short distance from his father's, and that between nine and ten o'clock, he left the public-house, and was absent some time; when he returned, he drank some porter, and remained drinking in the house some time. On being apprehended, he solemnly denied all knowledge of the affair, and there was no evidence to implicate him further than above stated. The deceased was well known to possess considerable property, and that is supposed to have been the object of those who committed the murder, but whether any property has been taken is not yet positively known. The prisoner was remanded until the Coroner's inquest has taken place.
An inquest was yesterday held at Godalmin, on the bodies of the above Mr.Chennil
(66 years of age) and Elizabeth Wilson
, his housekeeper, aged 60; who were both found murdered as described. The landlord of the public house at which young Chennil
had been drinking, deposed that he heard him say, on the Friday preceding the murder, that he "wished his father's d--d old housekeeper was dead." The constable who apprehended young Chennil
, stated that he found at his house the till in which his deceased father used to deposit his money, and in which there were notes with evident marks of blood upon them; an iron crow-bar, hammer, and other articles belonging to the deceased, which were found on young Chennil's
premises, were also marked with blood; and his worsted stockings, which he wore when apprehended, were damp with blood. A witness also deposed having heard the housekeeper express great dread of her master's son. - Notwithstanding the above evidence, the coroner expressed his opinion that the charge was not substantiated against young Chennil
; and the jury, after a long consultation, returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown.- Young Chennil
is detained in custody on suspicion of having committed the above horrible deed, as is also his father's carter, named W.Chalcroft
, who prevaricated much in his evidence, and is strongly suspected to be an accessary.
Mansion-House. - Lamentable Case. - Yesterday Daniel Nathan
and Nathan Israel
, two Jew boys, were charged with stealing pearls and other valuable articles from the house of Isaiah Israel, father of the last named prisoner. On Mr.Israel
being asked by the Lord Mayor if he ment to proceed against his son, he said, "My Lord, it is melancholy that a father should proceed criminally against his own offspring; but justice to the public and to myself compels me. His dissolute habits and determined perseverance in vice, obliged me long since to dismiss him from my house, since which many kind offers have been made to him, provided he would amend his life, but all my endeavours have been to no avail, and he has now arrived at the climax of villainy by the robbery of his father." - The boys were remanded.
. - This great composer, whose original and finished productions are so much admired and sought for musicians, resides at present in Vienna, the city where Haydn passed the greater part of his life, and where Mozart, under the patronage of the Emperor Joseph II, composed some of his best works. Vienna, therefore, has had the honour of receiving within its walls three musicians, the greatest that ever existed; men who have refined and exalted their art in the highest degree, and who will mark out in future times a true Augustan age of music. Beethoven
is about 50 year of age, and enjoys excellent health. Since the Continent has been in a pacific state, he has been visited by musicians from this country and every part of Europe, led by veneration for the man, and a desire to profit by his remarks.
