It may be very truly asserted, we think, that there is something- decidedly wrong- about this Institution ; for nothing can be done or said relative to it without leading- into difficulties or disputes.

Elseer, for the infringement of a patent that had been granted for a machine for the manu- facture of paper, in single . sheets, at considerable length without seam or joint, Ihe jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff— damages£ 300. It appear- ed in evidence, that the original inventors of the ma- chine, which is acknowledged to be one of great public utility, had ruined themselves in bringing it to perfection, and this action was brought by their assignees. An action was brought, to recover from Messrs. Eames and Co. coach- proprietors, of London, the value of a parcel containing bank- notes to the amount of £ 75, which was sent by their coach from Downham, Norfolk, but lost on the road. The plaintiffs were noasuited, on the ground of their having received a notice of the defendants' re- stricted liability of £ 5 unless a premium of insur- ance were paid. Salmon v. liensley.— The plaintiff, who is a ten- ant to Lord Caltborpe, of certain property in Bolt- court, Fleet- street, brought, an action to recover damages for an alleged nuisance, occasioned by a steam- engine, erected by the defendant, a very opulent printer, in Gough square, for the purpose of his business. The principal subjects of com- plaint were; first, the noise Occasioned by the work- ing of the engine ; secondly, the smoke aud blacks which escape from the flue; and these causes of complaint, have accrued since tl. ie year 1819- The Jury, under his Lordship7 © direction, found for the plaintiff— Damages One Shilling.— The nuisance, therefore, must be abated. The I urn out amongst Ihe spinners and others employed in the Cotton- factories at Hyde and the neighbourhood, begins to assume a somewhat serious appearance. A general parade of the hands now out was made on Monday hist through Hyde, and wilh those who are expected to leave their work at the expiration of their present notice, the number will, it is conjectured, be augmented to 10,000. Such a step, we arc sorry lo remark, is too sure to bring with it distress aud misery on the whole neighbourhood^ for we are credibly assured that the payment of wages lo the various hands there employed cannot be ' less than £ 5000 weekly.— Stockport Advertiser. EXCISE DUTIES.-— The following account ( says the Liverpool Advertiser of Saturday) will furnish the public with some idea of the extent of trade at Liverpool:— Excise Duties charged and col- lected at Liverpool in the year ended 5th January, 1S25 ... i £ 2,127,586 7 8 Draw bucks paid on exciseable goods exported in the same pe- riod £ 1,060,161 18 0 Charges of Ma- nagement at Liverpool 26,311 19 9 Cash remitted... 1,051,112 9 11 -£ 2,127,586 7 8 We stated on Saturday that Mr. Rothschild had entered into a contract with our Government for the Welsh Mines. This Gentleman, jointly with some Noblemen of high rank, has obtained a gran of those lands in North Wales which were formerly ( he properly of Sir Hugh Middleton; but after wards reverted to the Crown. These lands, altho' they have not been worked for a very long period are well known to contain ore of various metals in great abundance. ! t is therefore proposed, under the superintendence of Mr. Rothschild and the jNoblcir. cn above alluded to, to form a Compau and to raise an adequate capital for the purpose < working this valuable district. The public advan tages of this great undertaking, in forming a most just and useful medium for the investment English Capital, as well as in furnishing employ meul. lo an almost indefinite extent to the labou ing poor in Wales, need not be dwelt on. It not surprising •• that this splendid undertaking, this era of scheme? of every description, should have raised peculiar expectations in the City, and it is material, therefore, thai it should not be con- founded wilh other undertakings, which might be supposed from their title lo arise out of it. This lias been the case with the Welsh Mining Associa- tion which has been mistaken for that iu which Mr. Rothschild is concerned. It is proper, there- fore, lo stale, for Ihe information of capitalists, that no Company has yet been formed in conse- quence of the grant to Mr. Rothschild, nor have (• any of the preliminary arrangements for that pur- pose been made. Nothing, in fact, has yet been done beyond the completion of the grant from Government; but in a few days the Report of Ihe Engineers aud Mineralogists sent d; ovvn to inspect the mines, will be published.— il. Joining Paper. It has been stated in a Morning Papery that Mr. Rothschild has made a contract with the Govern- ment for some 51 iocs in Woles^ but that no arrangements towards forming a Company are effected. This is quite Correct: Mr. Rothschild's contract is for 31 years, and is unconnected with another Welsh Mining Company, now forming. No steps will be taken towards Ihe formation of a company, until the reports of several scientific men, who have been employed lo survey the dis- trict, shall have been received. In the event of the company being formed, the shares will be issued without premium to the contractors.— Globe. the meanness of so doing, after ( according own account) his earnest entreaties and forcible itations to the contrary ; and this merely bemuse, from his public situation, his name would ear to give a sort of official stamp to what was app which, from what he had heard, he was endeavour- ing to make the belter appear the worse cause : he communicated his unpleasant situation to more than one person, aud having been advised not to allow himself on any account to be thus made a tool of, he sot about endeavouring to extricate himself from the degrading situation into which he had been plunged by allowing a sense of obligation to over- power the exercise of his better judgment. He wrote an earnest letter, which he sent by Mrs. Owen to the professional gentleman already alluded to, begging that he would interpose with the Printer of the Chronicle so that Mr. Ow'en's name or character might not be involved in any discus- sion between the Newspapers. The gentleman was. out at a party, but, on being informed that Mrs. Owen wished to see him, he kindly went to her, and recommended that an application should be made to the Printer of the Chronicle, by Mr, Owen, on the subject. The result of this new communica- tion with the Printer was, that Mr. Owen was induced to write a document for publication in the Chronicle of Friday last, of which the following is a copy : Diocese of Hereford. ^ pH F, Clergy of this Diocese, who dur- JL ing the Year last past were exempt from Residence on any ^ Benefices, are requested to secure themselves from Legal Penalties, by notifying the Causes of Exemption before the Tw EI, FT II Day of FEBRUARY next.

It would almost seem, that a suspicion had immediately arisen, in some quarter, that a publication of what had been said would not add to the pleasure of the day's proceed- ings; for, after several verbal intimations had been demi- offieially ( as it were) transmitted to us not to publish any statement relative to the " Report" of ihe Sub- Committee, with which injunction the parties were informed we could not comply, we werefavouredy on the lltli inst. with the following curious billet: — Shrewsbury, January 11,1825. " Mr. Williams, and the Committee, desire Mr. Eddowes to take Notice, that, the Report was not officially presented, nor was it read, exOept in Extracts: that, therefore, it ii not possible to give any proper or connected view of it and that it is their express desire that no mangled account of it may be printed. All that tan be said is, That - ' Report was macle by a Sub- Committee, and that it gave general view of the expenditure of the Parishes and of the House of Industry. " W. HAZLEDINE, " JOHN STEAD, " J. LANGLLY." " Mr. Eddowes. w The latter part of this singular * c Notice,'' if w had adopted it as our report, would, we think, have appeared not a little ridiculous in the eyes uf the numerous assembly who had heard the history t> f the " reigns" of Ihe several unjust Stewards, as' detailed by the person who read to the Guardians the Extracts" from the " Report.''; Wei, how- ever, did not choose to deviate from our usual mode on all public occasions of giving a fair and honest account of what was said. We venture to assure ourselves that we can have no motive for wishing the continuance of abuses in an establishment to the cost of which we are pretty large contributors ; and most certainly, as Public Journalists, we could have no motive for giving a u maiVgled account" of what took place in the presence Of at least 120 of our respectable neighbours. On the 12th inst. after the publication of our Journal, the Gentleman whose signature, is the last of those attached to the " Notice," called at our office, and stated that be had been induced to sign it, not from any wish to prevent our publishing what had been stated, but from au apprehension that our Reporter had been able only to catch a sentence here and there of what had been said. On the following day, at St. Chad's vestry meeting, he repeated this to our Reporter, and said, i they ( meaning the Committee, we pre- sume) had no idea of his having been able to give so good an account of the meeting.' This was on the 13th : on the 14th a letter appeared in the Chronicle, insinuating that our report was inac- curate in three points, which it pretended to quote— we say, pretended, because two of the three quota- tions were perversions of our report; and we shall, therefore, only ag- aiu notice the first of the three insinuations, namely, that we had " erroneously made public" the " assertion" that " no work whatever is now done in the House, not even the knitting of the children's stockings." We have already reiterated that this " assertion" was made by the person who read to the Guardians the " Extracts" from the " Report," and we again repeat that he did say so. The Printer of the Shrewsbury Chronicle was the person who read to the Guardians the " Extracts" from the " Report ;" and we hope, for the credit of the conductors of ihe Public Press, that a parallel to the detail with which, in our own defence, we are about to trouble our readers, will r. ot often be laid before the public. A vindication of our report of the proceedings of the 10th from the errors imputed to it in the Chronicle of the 14th, appeared in our last Journal ; we presume the Printer of the Chronicle thought it requisite to attempt a rejoinder to our reply to the insinuations contained in his previous publication ; and it appears very probable he felt his utter inability to make any. direct reply to our statement, the truth of which he could not deny ; for, on Thursday morning last, he sent for Mr. Owen Davies Owen, the Steward of tj^ e House of Industry, and, placing in hiSbands a ready- prepared document impugning our report of what took place at the House on the 10th instant, request- ed him to put his signature to it, observing, that he ( the Printer) had not time to obtain the signatures of some of the Directors to it. Mr. Owen requested that he might be allowed to read what he was desired to sign, and having done so, and expressed his great anxiety not to be drawn into any discus- sion on the subject, he mentioned to the Printer of the Chronicle, that as it was well known he ( Mr Owen) was very deaf, and did not hear what took place at the meeting, he thought it would be im- proper in him to sign any statement about it besides, he had been informed by a gentleman wh was present at the assembly on the 10th, that the assertion as published in ihe Journal, of there being no work done in the IJbu^ e, was made by the Printer of the Chronicle on that occasion. * Not- withstanding this, he was again urged to... sign the document prepared. Mr. Owen had reasons for considering himself under obligations to the person who was now soliciting his signature, atid being | unwilling to give him offence, he requested that he would allow him to consult the g- entleman pro- fessionally employed to obtain a Repeal of the Act, before he signed the paper that had bebn. put into his hands: this was acceded to; but the Printer took care to accompany him, and for obvious rea- sons. On again stating his doubts, to the profes- sional gentleman, as to the propriety of his: signing the document prepared, Mr. Owen begged to be allowed to refer to the gentleman who had told him the particular expression was used to which we have so often alluded : and in consequence Mr. Owen went to that gentleman's residence in the Abbey Foregate, and on his again assuring him that he understood the expression was used, and that its erroneous tenor was immediately noticed to another person present, Mr. Owen entreated him to assist him in his dilemma by stating ibis fact at the^ office of the solicitor : the gentleman kindly acceded to the request, and accompanied him there : on the way, they met with the person who had heard the expression, and to whom the erroneous tenor was pointed out, who immediately confirmed the fact of " no work whatever IS now done in the House, not even the knitting of the children's stockings," having been said, with the exception of the word l< now," which he thong- lit was not used : a third gentleman, who had been present on the 10th, con- curred iii the same statement. We shall not tyere enter into a dispute about the word " now"— for the meaning- of the sentence is the same whether that word is retained or omitted. On arriving at the solicitor's office, the Gentleman stated, on tlie above authority, that the expression, excepting the word " now," had been used, and Mr. Owen again appealed, w hether, under these circumstaneesj he could sanction a document impugning Our report. He, however, had copied the document prepared by the Printer of the Chronicle, and sighed his copy, which was compared with the original ; the original rvas then burnty and Mr. Owen's copy was taken to be printed from! Reflection oil these circum- stances soon convinced Mr. Owen that lie had done wrong in thus allowing himself, and perhiips his character, to be involved in a dispute about which he absolutely knew nothing but by hearsay, and iri EDWARD JONES, Ironm. oncjer, Shrewsbury, OST respectfully begs Leave to inform his Friends and the Public in general, that he has taken the Premises in M ARDOL, next. Door to Mr. POOL, Currier, which he has opened in the above Business.

" HOUSE OF INDUSTRY, JANUARY 20TII, 1825. Having personally examined " the Report" made by ihe Sub Committee of the United Parishes,— extracts from which were read at the late Assembly of Guardians— « I am satisfied that the statements published in the Journal were not correct reports of those extracts which are said to have been read to the meeting upon that occasion. " OWEN DAVIES OWEN, Steward. The above document, if it had " satisfied" both the writer and- tiie Printer, is in itself a very silly thing,— as while it is evidently intended to impugn our report, and would have been so construed by every person who read it, there is, in fact, if literally taken, nothing which would really affect our report any more than it would affect Mr. Owen's accounts at. the House. The Printer of the Chron- icle, however, aware that it did not come sufficiently up to the mark, took care to print it with such additional words as would give it the necessary point, in the subjoined form : " For the Shrewsbury Chronicle. " HOUSE OF INDUSTRY, JAN. 20TH, 1825.

After perusing this letter in the Chronicle on Friday, morning, we wrote to Mr. Owen, to know \ vhether he was the writer of the letter which i appeared with his signature attached to it in the Chronicle of that morning? and whether he meant to say that he heard what was said at the special assembly of Guardians on the 10th? About mid- day on Friday, and previous to our receiving any written communication from Mr. Owen, a person in onr employment met Mr. Owen in company with another person. He asked Mr. Oweu if he meant to say that he heard what was said at the special assembly of Guardians on the 10tii ? and whether he wrote the letter which had appeared with his signature attached to it in the Chronicle of that morning? To which Mr. Oweii distinctly replied, that he did not hear what took place at the special assembly of Guardians on the 10th instant, and that he did not write ALL the letter which appeared with his signature attached to it in the Chronicle of that morning. We suppose the Printer of the Chronicle, when he next assails us, will endeavour to find instruments better suited to his purpose than those he has employed on the present occasion : we wish we could hope that he would adopt a course more manly and honourable.

An elegant Villa, in the castellated Gothic style of architecture, is about to be erected on Earl Grosvenor's estate at Halkin, near Holywell, Flint- shire.— The site of the proposed Villa is superb, commanding an uninterrupted view of the bold and wide spreading estuaries of the Dee and Mersey, with Chester, Liverpool, and other interesting ob- jects in the perspect ive. The immediate scenery of the Villa is also beautiful. The meeting of the Cardigan Cytnreigyddion Society took place on Wednesday se'nnight at Cardigan, being the first anniversary of that patriotic Institution. The proceedings were highly interest- ing, and satisfactory to all present. At the late Montgomeryshire Quarter Sessions, Edward Grillilhs, for stealing a quantity of wheat out of a barn, the property of Mr. John Griffiths, of Glanmeheli, farmer, was sentenced to 7 years' transportation.— Edward Goodwin, for stealing a post from Gilvach Farm, to be imprisoned 2 months in the House of Correction, and privately whipped.— Charles Mezey, for stealing a pair of ! shoes from Penarth, to be imprisoned 1 month in the House of Correction. At the late Denbighshire Quarter Sessions, David Edwards, for stealing poultry, was sentenced to be imprisoned 2 years to hard labour.— John Davies, for stealing wheat, to be imprisoned 6 months to hard labour.— Humphrey Evans, for stealing a silver spoon, to be imprisoned 3 calendar months. IMPORTANT CONVICTION.— Hugh Prichard, of Llanrug, Carnarvonshire, quarryman, was, on Saturday I he 15th instant, convicted before Thos. Parry Jones Parry, Esq. one of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for that county, for unlaw- fully pursuing and endeavouring to spear ealmoiij in the liver Seiont, in the said parish of Llanrng, and was adjudged to pay the full penalty of £ 10, directed by the late Act; in default of payment; he was committed to the House of Correction for four months to hard labour, unless the penalty was sooner paid ; in three days after, it was paid, and distributed as the Act directs.— The Magistrates in the Carnarvon district are determined lo convict every person found guilty of a similar offence. THE GRACES.— Three very amiable Young Ladies, daughters of a Gentleman, of fortune in the Country, aud who from their urbanity of manners and mental accomplishments were usually styled " The Graces," felt conscious, however, that to constitute a fairer claim to the Title, Ihe removal of some personal blemishes would be indispensably requisite. These moderns, like the Graces of the ancients, were of the most perfect symmetry. U11 fortunately, one was nearly bald- headed; Ihe tresses of the secoud were of a repulsive red, reducing both Sisters to the necessity of wearing false Hair ; and the otherwise beautiful features of the third, disfigured by freckles.— She felt still more unhappy than the others, her misfortune baffling concealment. Luckily, these Young Ladies heard of ROW LAND's Specifics, and in the course of a short time, the freckles vanished, the fiery tresses were transformed into glossy jet, and bald- ness replaced bv a redundancy of flowing ringlets, by the use of ROW LA N D's K A L Y DOR, T YR1A N DYE, and MACASSAR OIL. On Saturday, the 15th inst. Thomas Yoxall, late of Balterley, was ordered for committal to the county gaol at Stafford, hy G. Toilet, Esq. for stealing geese. The constable, into whose charge he was given, was al tacked and violently assaulted by two men ( 110 doubt associates of the prisoner) when he had conducted him on the way to prison as far as Rosemary Hill, near Newcastle; and they succeeded in rescuing the thief, who has not since been heard of. He is a short, slout, round- faced young man. Thos. Hutchinson, the active consta- ble of Newcastle, hearing of Yoxall's escape, ini mediately commenced a search, in course of which he found, at a lodging house in Newcastle, not Ihe individual of whom he was iu quest, but a man who had escaped from custody iu August last charged with stealing a hay mare from Mrs. Top ham, of Eaton- under- Tern, in this county, 011 the 8th of last March. After an examination befor Thomas Twctnlow, Esq. of Peat's Wood, near Drayton, he was committed for the offence to ou county gaol.

To the Editor of the Salopian Journal. SIR, When an undertaking* of this nature does not actually intersect their properties. Gentlemen may possibly consider themselves as uninterested there- in. Farmers, in like manner,. though sufficiently alive to some injuries of their occupancies, rarely attend to those which are less obvious anil super- ficial ; such as locality as to present and future markets— Projects which tend to lower the price of agricultural, produce ; to impose difficul ties on the labours of husbandry ; to increase poor- rates with- out contributing thereto ; to lessen private secur- ity ; and, perhaps, least of all to serious and moral considerations' which involve our general interests and national welfare. I would urg* t: no private plea against manifest public advantage.: but it must be obvious that the present line is partial and oppressive; holding forth no pretensions to public utility at all counter- vailing the extensive injuries it will necessarily inflict. .. I myself sincerely believe that in the existing circumstances of the country, respecting inland transit, RAIL ROADS in general are not only UNNECESSARY, but INEXPEDIENT and IN- JURIOUS both to AGRICULTURE and TRADE, and am sure they will have all the demoralizing effects incident to the best manufacturing specula- tions. Every individual, therefore, under these impressions, has an interest ( and indeed a duty) in ^ becking such invasions of private right, and such ruinous inroads into peaceable and quiet districts. And as you,. Sir, may do much towards opening the eyes, of the public, I hope you will insert in your next Paper the annexed second Letter of 44 A Land Owner" to the Editor of the Stafford Paper, and tbe present address to yourself of, Sir, your con-' stant Subscriber, and obedient Servant, S A LO PO Pill LUS.

Brit tain Harriet Hooper John Gar me run Mr. EDITOR, The indecent mention of respectable persons by n a in el"' given at full length in the first Birmingham letter met with ihe merited indignation of Ml your readers here, and drew from me those strictures to which vbur laudable impartiality . gave place. 1 think I ' may appeal to bis second letter as a proof thai the writer is himself convinced of the incorrect- ness of his own assumptions : and I trust I shall clear myself and my brethren farmers of the imputation of looking " down with supercilious arrogance on tbe industrious classes of the community, 11 the only assumption worthy of notice in his second letter, Which;'. consisting. solely of personal reflections, and applying alone to me whom they do not move, I shall not waste a single line of your column by reply. — Writers, Sir, have usually placed us farmers ( for 1 hove myself no other profession) and agricultural labourers, not only amongst the industrious, but amongst the most virtuous classes of the community ; and perhaps a comparison of districts iu the annals of crime will justify their position : " here will I hold." Some* indeed - have drawn a line: but I for myself disclaim. any separation between the landed and comniereial inleresls; they aid and support each other ; and must flourish or fall together. I despise no set of men,. " Homo sum; nilut'ptvmanvm a me alienum pu. U) I would not that v\ hat I wr'tfe should give pain lo auy ono; but if caps fit, I can't help it; much jess would 1 give pain to one who pathetically describes. himself u an bumble and despised Plater of Birmingham," and as such an object of piiy anil compassion. But Sir, we must claim an English- man's privilege, which doubtless he loves in his own case, of being tiie Judges of our own affairs: and hope he will not be offended if we decline his kind offer of valuing our estates. I think I may appeal to your own columns for a proof of my asseriion that the projected rail- road through the counties of Chester', Salop, & Stafford, is NOT OF GEN ER A L PUBLIC UTILITY, biitcalculate. 1 forthe PHI VATE CONVENIENCE of TWO TOWNS at ITS EX- TREMITIES and THE PROJECTORS AS A JOB. And I will further repeat my belief that the majority of owners iihd occupants, in those counties, are of opinion that the injuries thereby apprehended will not be confined solely to the intersection of their respective occupancies, but be broadly detrimental to all the agricultural interests adjacent thereto, if we would come to a right determination on any subject we must examine it in all its bearings. On the present, an obvious abstract Question demands our attention. First, ABE RAIL- ROADS IN" THE PRESENT STATE of TH£ COUNTRY THOUGHT GENERALLY BENEFICIAL OR NECESSARY? Secondly, do any of the projects laid before promise a general advantage countervailing the very extensive moral and civil injuries to public and private rights thereby threatened ? as for instance- does the ' plan for uniting the great and opulent towns of Liverpool — Hull — Manchester — Derby — Birming- ham, and Bristol, with the Metropolis, present such promise to the public?— we see nothing like this in the present project, but though of clear opinion we do not prejudge. These are Questions for Parliament, and we have only to present our petitions to the legislature on our ca « e. These are the considerations to which I have called the at- tention of my countrymen; and that a general feeling of this nature does how exist, 1 appeal to ihe late London and Country papers, And I cannot here refrain from requesting- a place in yours for a very short and sensible letter in a neighbouring County Journal ( Salopian, December 29th, 1824) Wherein the excellent writer briefly but feelingly touches the higher and more vital points of national welfare, Which mv letter, divided between civil interests and the denial of groundless imputations, failed'to embrace. In taking leave of tbe subject, 1 repeat once more mv entire confidence in ihe first as'S^ mbfy in the. world, the British Parliament, both iis to i. ts. purity, its integrity, and its power to pro- tect every Englishman in his abode, however humble and iniditrusive as is mv own, may be his situation in life. I further invite my friends to examine Mr. Stephenson's sections of the undeitakiug, with re- ference fo the expense and the accuracy of the Statement's, in which it is observable that there will not be more than two miles of level work. From this and froth other documents I am not without hope that the good sense of some of its supporters will finally lead to the abandonment of tbe undertaking. I am, Sir, Your obliged and obedient servant, A LAND OWNER. in proportion to the'keenness of that agonv which the punishment of his vices has in- flicted on him! May the hope that the sincerity of my own efforts for the attainment of. holiness, and the approval of my own love to the great author of religion, will render this prayer, and - every other for the welfare of mankind, more efficacious,— cheer ihe in the path of duty ; but let me not. forget, that, while we are permitted to animate ourselves to exer- tion by every innocent moti ve, these are but , the lesser streams which may serve to. increase the current, hut which, deprived of the gh'aivd fountain of good ( a deep conviction of inborn sin, and Brm belief in the efficacy of- Christ's death for the salva- tion of those who trust in him, and really seek to serve him), would soon dry up, and leave us as barren of every, virtue as before. 44 Hastings,' July 31, 1814." There is nothing*, nVy Lord, in this extract, wliieSi in a literary sense, can at alt interest., you *. but it may, perhaps, appear. to you worthy of reflection', how deep and expansive a concern for the happi- ness of others the Christian faith can awaken in the midst of youth and prosperity. Here is nothing poetical and splendid, as in the expostulatory ho-, mage of M. Delamartiue ; but here is the sublime, my Lord ; for this intercession was offered, on your account, to the supreme source of happiness. It. sprang from a faith more. confirmed than that of the French poet; and from charity, which, in com- bination with faith, showed its . power unimpaired amidst the languors and pains of approaching dissolution. 1 will hope that a prayer, which, l ain sure, was deeply sincere, may not be always unavailing. . :. . - It would add nothing, my Lord, to the fame with which your genius has surrounded you, for an unknown- and obscure individual to express his admiration of it. I had rather be numbered with those who wish and. pray, that 11 wisdom from above," and " peace," and such a mind. ' joy, ' may enter Lord Byron on Christianity. [ from THE BATH AND CHELTENHAM GAZETTE.] Mr. John Sheppard, of Frome, the author of " Thoughts on Private Devotion," has just pub- lished a second edition of that work, to which he has added a brief but highly- interesting corre- spondence with the late highly- gifted poet, Lord Byron. Mr. Sheppard's letter so well explains and introduces, the subject, that any prefatory remark of ( iters is needless. Suffice it to say, that, to the friends of Christianity and the admirers of Lord Byron, it wiil prove equally interesting; and we are persuaded that our readers will thank us for presenting it to their notice. To the Right Honourable Lord Byron.— Pisa. Frome, Somerset, Nov. 21, 1821. MY LORD,— Morethau two years since, a lovely and beloved wife was taken from me, by lingering- disease, after a very short union. She possessed unvaryiug gentleness and fortitude, and a piety so retiring as rarely to disclose itself in words, but so influential, as to produce uniform benevolence of conduct. In the last hour of life, after a farewell look on a lately born, and only infant, for whom she . had evinced inexpressible affection, her last whispers were 44 God's happiness ! — God's happi- ness !"* Since the second anniversary of her de- cease, I have read some papers, which no one had seen during her life, and which contain her most secret thoughts. I am induced to communicate to . your Lordship a passage from these papers, which, " there is no doubt, refers to yourself; as I have more than otice heard the writer mention your agility on the rocks at Hastings : Vt- Oh, my God, I take encouragement from the assurance of thy word, to prav to Thee in behalf or one Tor vvhoai I have lately been much interested. " May the person to whom I allude ( and who is now, we fear, as much distinguished for his neglect of Thee, , as for the. transcendant talents Thou hast bestowed on him), be awakened to a sense of his own danger, and led to seek that peace of mind in A proper sense of religion, which lie has found this world's enjoyments unable to procure ! Do Thou grant that his ' uture examp'e may be productive of far more extensive benefit than his past, conduct and writings have been of evil ; and may the Sun of Righteousness, which, we trus!, will, at some future period, arise on him, be bright in proportion to the darkness of those clouds which guilt has raided around him, and the bulni which it bestows, Uealiu . * THE ANSWER. Pisa, December 8,1821. SIR,— I haVe received your letter. 1 need not say, that the extract which it contains has affected me, because it would imply a want of all feeling to have read it with indifference. Though i am not quite sure, that if was intended by the writer for me, yet ihe date, the place where it was written, with some other circumstances which you mention, ren- der the allusion probable. , But, for whomsoever it was meant, I have read it with all the pleasure which can arise from so melancholy a topic. . I say pleasure— because your brief and simple picture of the life and demeanour of the excellent person whom I trust that yon will again meet, cannot be contemplated without, the admiration due to her virtues, arid her pure and unpretending piety. Her last moments were particularly striking; and I do not know, that, in the course of reading* tbe story of mankind, and still less in my observations upon the existing portion, I ever met with any thing" so unostentatiously beautiful.— Indisputably, the firm believers in the Gospel have a great advan- tage over all others,— for this simple reason, that if true, they will have their reward hereafter, and if there be no hereafter, they can be but with the infidel in his eternal sleep, having had the assist- ance of an exalted hope through life, without subse- quent disappointment, since ( at the worst for them) 44 out of nothing, nothing* can arise," not even sorrow. But a man's creed does not depend upon himself; who can say, I trill believe,— this.— that, — or the other? and least of all that which he least can comprehend. I have, however, observed, tb. at those who have begun life with extreme faith, have, in the end greatly narrowed it, as Chilling- worth, Clarke ( who ended as an Arian), Bayle, and Gibbon ( once a Catholic), and some others ; while, on the other hand, nothing is more common than for the early sceptic to end in a firm belief, like Maupertuis, and Henry Kirke White..*- But my business is to acknowledge your letter, and not lo make a dissertation. I am obliged to you for your good wishes, and more obliged by the. extract from the papers of the beloved object whose qualities you have so well described in a few words. J can assure you that all the fame which ever cheated Humanity into higher notions of its own importance, would never weigh in my mind against the pure and pious interest which a virtuous being may be pleased to take in my welfare. In this point of view I would not exchange the prayer of the deceased in my behalf, for the united glory of Homer, Casar, and ! Napoleon, could such be accumulated upon a living ' head. Do me at least the justice to suppose, that 44 Video nieliora proboque," however the " I) ete- riora sequor" may have be^ n applied to my conduct. I have the honour to he, Your obliged and obedient Servant, BYRON. I5. Si.' I do not know that I am addressing* a cler- gyman ; but I presume that you will not be af- fronted by the mistake ( if it is one) on the address of this letter. One who has so well explained, and deeply felt the doctrines of religion, will excuse the error which led me to believe him its minister. " * It has been suggested to me, that this expression may possibly, to some readers, appear obscure. The ideas which it solemnly conveyed to myself, and which I believe to have been in' the mind of the dying Christian who uttered it, are such as these:—! am early summoned to quit all that happiness which consists in tbe exercise of affection towards those whom I tenderly love, and in the enjoyment of their's; but,— oh! blissful consolation !— lam only called henee to tfiat infinitely superior happiness ' which God hath prepared for them " that love him,' and indeed to the participation of his oivn happiness, which is perfect and eternal! 4$ U& ttlUfieou0 EntflHgence* CAUTION— James Cohhart, a tea hawker, who travels the neighbourhood of Bromsgrove, Red ditch, &, c to sell tea, wrapped in parcels of a quarter of a pound each,, appeared before the Magistrates at Droitwich, on Friday week, when 54lbs, of tea, found in his possession, was forfeited, he not having a permit to correspond for the same; and the tea was declared lo be of the most inferior description. TIIE GAME LAWS.— At the Hereford Sessions, last week, James Eclcley was charged with having been found, on the night of the 14th of December, in a close, in the parish of Much Cowarn, armed with a gun, for the purpose of killing game. He was indicted under the 57th Geo. c. 5) 0, which renders any person convicted of this offence, liable to be transported for seven years, 44 or such other punishment, as may be by law inflicted on persons guilty of . misdemeanour, and as the Court shall adjudge," whether fine or imprisonment, or both. The evidence adduced in support of tbe indictment, most clearly established the guilt of the prisoner. About eleven o'clock on the. night in question, he was found by the gamekeeper of the prosecutor, in a close armed with a gun. After a violent resistance he was secured ; and on examination the gun proved to be loaded with powder and shot, and in his pocket were found three purse- nets ; nets for taking g* ame were also found set iu the hedge, at tbe spot where he was apprehended. Mr. Armitage, in behalf of the prisoner, observed, that the Act was equally severe and cruel, and such as they ought not to give effect to— for, under this Act. the prisoner, if con- victed, would be punished by transportation.— ( Mr. Powell interrupted the Learned Counsel, and stated that the law was not so ; the Court had also the power of indicting any punishment of fine or im- prisonment, or both.)— So far from severity of punishment having diminished the perpetration of crime, it was a fact, that in proportion as the law had increased the penalties, so bad poaching* increased. ( Mr. Powell asked, if his Learned Friend intended to prove this ?)— the way in which gentlemen sent out their gamekeepers to watch for poachers, was calculated to provoke resistance— they were sent like footpads, armed with pistols, instead of being furnished with sticks, as was formerly the case. He felt confident the Jury would acquit the prisoner.— Three witnesses gave the prisoner an excellent character.— The Chairman, in summing up, did not wish himself to give any opinion on the game laws; and he did not think the Jury were called upon to consider their tendency in their verdict, which ought only to be guided by the evidence they had heard ; if they had any doubts, it was proper they should give the prisoner the benefit of them; but the character he had received ought not to influence their decision,, which should only be guided by the evidence produced. The Jury, after consulting a short time, returned their verdicti— woif guilty. This verdict excited consider- able surprise.— On the next prisoner being placed at the bar, Mr. Powell, Counsel for the prosecu- tion, requested the Court to discharge the Jury ; but the prisoner having been arraigned with others in the morning, the Court expressed some doubts as to the power, of discharging tbe Jury ; and in reply to the application, the Chairman observed, the Jury had given their verdict in opposition to the most direct, and positive evidence, and, addressing them, he said, 44 / do not ki^ ow how you can re- concile it lo your consciences.-^ Hereford Journal.

There is at present a greater demand for Cotton goods,' than all the English and, Scotch manufactories together,, with all their advantages of machinery," experience, and capital, can supply ; and it is not without reason conjectured, that the recognition of the South American Republics will lead to a still farther- extension of this trade... We perceive that in Ireland; as well as in England, Joint Stork Companies are spreading in every direction. There are the Hibernian Banking Company,, the Hibernian Gas Company. I and various others. The Bank of Ireland hove reduced their discounts from five to four per Cent, on English bills, and will give bills on London payable at the L> ank or England at 21 days instead. of 30. All these measures are indisputably favourable to tire de. velopement of industry; and we may reasonably hope that with industry will come its natural concomitants, order and tranquillity—- unless they are impeded by the efforts of factious men, who are in effect the Worst enemies of their country.

Robert J. Stcvelly, of GlandufT, Esq. a Ma- gistrate for the counties of Cork ami Limerick, transmitted 36 men to the £> aol of the county of Cork, on Sunday, under the Insurrection Act. These men were apprehended on Saturday night by the Police stationed at Glanduff, assisted by the Military, quartered R\ Drumcollegher. In conse- quence of private information, an adequate force was despatched- from the latter place to the house of a man named Stokes, who resides near Tullileare, on the bounds of the county of Cork, and there secured the large party who had assembled for some purpose not vet ascertained. Tlie Officer who commanded the Military ( Ensign Moorhead, of the 19th Regiment) represented to the Magistrate that people appeared to be approaching Stokes's house from ali quarters of the country, and from the brightness of the, mown he distinguished at least one hundred men, who formed one of the masses of the people who were on their way to the rendez- vous, It is therefore supposed that something serious was in contemplation. If the whole had aggregated, a vast number would have been collected; but on perceiving the soldiers at a distance they all dispersed.— Cork paper.

Bird, of the 5th Foot, who had two ribs fractured at I he battle of Albuera, in 1811, was last week obliged to have one of them removed by a Surgeon of Aber- gavenny. This gallant and meritorious officer, had occasionally suffered excruciating pain from the fracture, but we are happy to say, he is now likely to do well. Capt. Bird lost the sight of his right eye at the battle of Vittoria, and had his left arm broken in two places at the battle of the Pyrenees. It is worthy of rccord that H. R. H. the Duke of York, had an interview with hirti after his ret urn from France,- and ordered an ample provision for life for his services. An address to the City Members has been very generally signed by such of the inhabitants of St. Martin's and other parishes, in this city, as ure subject tO the assessed taxes, requesting them to support any measure which may he brought forward in the ensuing session of Parliament, tending to relieve the country of those burthens.— Petitions, praying the repeal of the assessed taxes, are now in the course of signature at Oxford, Bath, Bristol, and numerous other parts of the country.— Some of the London prints state that this step has been determined upon by Ministers, as one of the first measures to be submitted to the House of Commons on its assembling.— Worcester Herald. A WISE FOOL.— A fellow, half rogue, half fool, living at Edge ware, was sent for, a few days since, by a widow lady, to dig tip a potatoe field about a mile from her house. Before he set out to his labour, he was provided with a comfortable break- fast, which be soon demolished. Mis good- natured employer then cut him a large slice of meat, and what she considered a quantum suf of bread, which she desired him to take with him to the field for his dinner, in order to save the trouble of coming home. To her great surprise, he disposed of this with as much rapidity as his breakfast, and then, with' a modest assurance, said, " Mistress, as you'll be giving me a bit for supper whorl I come back, I may as well have that now, and then I shall have no further trouble." His humour was complied with, and the bread and cheese which was handed to him vanished as quickly as his former meals. He was now desired to go to work; but shrugging his shoulders significantly, he exclaimed, 44 1 never vorks a'ter supper," ami away he walked home without even saying good night ! LONGEVITY.— There is now living at Wiiislow, Buckinghamshire, a man whose name is William Ovitts. He was the second person who enlisted into Elliott's Regiment of Light Dragoons, raised in the year 1758, and is now, and has been for some considerable time, the only survivor of that Regi- men!, as originally formed. This man is known to have been an excellent and brave soldier, while he served in that Regiment, from which he received his discharge about thirty years since. IN the battle of Freybur| » h, which took place near the conclusion of the seven years' war, when ( he then hereditary Prince of Brunswick was attempted to be carried off the field a prisoner, by two French dragoons and a foot soldier, . Ov. itIs, single handed, gailopped after them killed the three French soldiers, and rescued the Prince, iu this gallant exploit he was badly woonded; the Prince took him to his quarters, had him carefully attended until his wounds were h.' aled, gave him a purse of a hundred guineas, and recommended him for promotion ; the latter he modestly declined, on account of his education and habits being such as were not suited to any rank above that of a private soldier. This man, now above ninety years of age, with those infirmities and wants which are usually attendant upon so advanced a period of life, is obliged to take refuge in, and submit lo the priva- tions of, a parish workhouse. & 0V ttjt Saltan journal* MY PORTFOLIO.

But it is pecu liarly due to this Society to slate, that never was a meeting of this nature so strongly marked by a spirit of harmony, which is the strongest guarantee of the success of their patriotic exertions, as well a> of their earnestness in the great National Cause. About forty respectable members of the Institution sat down to an excellent dinner prepared with the usual taste of Mrs. Jones.-^- After the cloth was removed, the following toasts ( amongst others were drank with the greatest applause: viz. Church and King* ; Ouke of Wellington ; Lord Give Sir W. YV. VYynnf; the Right Hon. C. W. YV Wynn ; Sir Edward Pryce Lloyd; Sir Robert Williames Vaoghan; the Rev. David Hughes, M. A.

Because our kindly affections verbalance our spleen, and love becomes, of conse- uenee, the spring of our conduct. But Evil Speaking is an unreasonable and ab- suid thing itself, upon the principles of common sense. Every man, hy the constitution of nature and the establishment of Society, is invested with many a 1 liable privileges, which are esteemed his right or noperty. Aud every unlawful infringement upon t is considered, aud with the utmost reason, as a manifest violation of material justice. Now, iu the estimation of a thinking man, of all properties next to life, character is the dearest— ufinitely preferable even to the goods of fortune; nd to a generous mind preferable even to" life tself; because ' a man of real sense considers it is belter not lobe than to be miserable; not to live, than to live in contempt.. To rob, therefore, any* man of his character wantonly and maliciously, is void of every rational plea, and is manifest injus- tice. Such detestable conduct can only spring- from villainy incarnate, from a soul dead to honour, and buried in the lowest grave of depravity. In forming an opinion of our neighbour's goods, this great rule should be invariably observed : we 0' ght not to estimate their worth according* to the caprice of our own fancy, but according to the price fixed upon them by the proprietor. Hence, we ought not to regard as a shadow, what he values as a substance ; or esteem as a trifle, that which he values as a jewel. A man values his ife; murder, therefore, is injurious and unlawful. But he prefers his reputation to his life, then is defamation the worst species of. murder. This sen- timent is expressed with emphatical sublimity by mi author of the first- reputation. " Who steals my purse steals something, nothing-; ' Twas mine, ' tis his, and has been slave to thousands; Bat he that filches from me my good name, Robs me of that which not enriches him, And makes me poor indeed." SHAKESPEARE. This practice is equally absurd with respect to ourselves. He that gives a bad character of his neighbour, gives, in the first place, a worse one of himself. Evil Speaking is not only a bad thing, but an infallible mark of a. bad man. At what wickedness will that man hesitate, who is so assi- duous fo imitate the devil: From what crime will that man fly, whose heart is the habitation of male- volence, and whose tongue is the vehicle of slander ? His speeches. which are intended as a satire upon others, providentially inverted, become a stitire on himself, and, like Hainan, he is hanged Upon his own gallows. He that speaks evil of one, threatens all; and where all are threatened, none are safe. The words of such a man are a proclamation of war. His throat is an open sepulchre, and in his mouth are lodged the instruments of death. If this man, may every judicious observer say, speak to me with so much freedom of others, without all doubt, w hen once it convex to be my turn, he will speak to others with as much freedom of me. Nothing but the most partial self- love can induce me to form a different conclusion. SPECULATION.

SIR, You will oblige me by inserting iu your very useful and respectable Paper the following. Your's, respectfully, SPEIIO. f Vem^ January, 1825. OLTF . EVIZJ SPEAKING. Of all the vices which reign among men, there is none more common, nor, I fear, more hurtful, than that of EVIL SPEAKING. There is a spirit of calumny gone forth into the world,-- which, raging through every rank, and through every sex, sweeps* like an impetuous tor. rent, all before it, and spreads, like the pestilence that wasteth at noon day, a rueful devastation all • around. Every company is become a Court of trial ; every seat a tribunal; every table a bar of judg- ment. No sacredness or dignity of character, no innocence or probity of life, no propriety or subiim ity of conduct, can secure us from the fangs of this fell destroyer ; but all must submit to the censure of malicious tongues. To check the. insolence of this daring vice, is the design of this paper. Calumniators are men of the worst description ; whatever morality they may affect., is an outside show, put on to. deceive ; and the only reason, why those who are proficients in this species of villainy, • are not equally so in others, is, because they have not the same desire, the same opportunities, and the same temptations' to other criminal indigencies, that they have to this; and it is probable, that the same baseness and littleness of soul, which prompts a man to hear with avidity, or propagate with pleasure, the reports of malice, would also lead him to commit adultery, perjury, or theft, if the inclina- tions were equally strong, " the opportunities equally convenient, and the temptations equally inviting. " He who malignant, tears an absent friend, Or when assail'd by others, don't defend; Who trivial barsts of laughter strives to raise, And courts of prating- petulance the praise; Of things he never saw, who tells his tale, And friendship's secrets knows not to conceal: This is vile; here, Roman, xix your mark; Hia soul is black, as his complexion's dark." FRANCIS'S HORACE. For the foundation of vice is nothing else than the malignity of a debased spirit. The practice of Evil Speaking plainly demon- strates that we are destitute of every good and worthy principle; of every generous and noble sentiment. If a man pretend to possess an un- feigned friendship for any other man, whilst he is levelling against him the poisonous arrows of de- traction, his friendship is strangely metaphysical, and his sentiments as opposite to the common mea- sures of love, as his practices are to the common measures of religion. What is the reason that we never speak evil of ourselves?- Because we love ourselves; and if we love our neighbours as ourselves, we should be as tender of their character as we are of our own, because the principle of love is the same in both. YVhat is the reason that we are so unwilling to hear, so slow to believe, and so quick to resent any injury of this kipd, done to those for whom we hare contracted a ft is quite improbable, we had almost said itn. possible, thai one bajf the plans now in progress for the investment of British Capital should succeed. They are numerous beyond all. precedent, and too multifarious to admit of any thing like a distinct classification. Indeed we scarcely know of any period in British History, if we except that which gave birth to the great South Sea Bubble, in whicl there has been so inordinate a rage for speculation as at the present time. The newspapers of the day are absolutely filled with announcements of new, and of course to all appearance, desirable projects, in nearly the whole, of which shares are at a pre- mium, Only a few days after the matter has been made public. That several of these undertakings are, in every sense of the term, such as mercantile men may engage in with a fair prospect of remuneration, there can be no question; but, that others, having for their object no earthly view but that of enabling their original promoters to sell out a large number f shares at a considerable premium, are almost sure to end in chagrin and disappointment, is equally certain. Among the former, we would class a large proportion of those plans which have the two- fold object of reimbursing the capitalists interested, and promoting* the local interests of the districts from which they emanate;— such, for instance, as hose for opening facilities of communication be tween large manufacturing towns, by means of Rail- roads ;— working English, and Irish mines; — cutting Ship Canals;— lighting British, towns with Gas,— local Insurance Companies, and a variety of projects of a similar character, which promise to benefit, alike, the public and the speculator. * But even these laudable projects, are now becom ing so numerous that it is not to be expected they n all of them succeed. That the establishment of mmu'nications, by means of Iron Rail- ways, be tween the more important and populous districts of Great Britain, is calculated to improve the internal commerce of the country, as well as to reimburse the projectors, cannot be doubted; but it would be worse than idle to anticipate an equally successful result for Companies of the same description formed in districts through which the traffic is comparatively insignificant, and the chances of success proportion- ality diminished ;< yet if we turn to the public prints we shall perceive that Rail- road Companies are in urse of organisation in a variety of places of fourth and fifth rate importance iu different parts of the kingdom. What this is likely to- end in we need 44 no ghost from the grave" to inform us. And the only consolation which can arise out of a failure under such circumstances, is the reflection that the sacrifice of the parties has uot been' made without benefit to the public at large ; for, however ' people may differ as to the extent of advantage likely to result to private individuals, the employment of the labouring population, and the facilities of transit for property from one place to another which must eventually be promoted, hold out promises of certain benefit to the public iu general. The Local Insur- ance Companies promise to prove as advantageous to the interests, as they are creditable to the spirit, of their projectors. If the present rage for speculation would confine itself to any reasonable bounds, it would be well ; but when we see, independently of Companies for the erection of general Slaughter- Houses in the metropolis, and other schemes of equal, and niany indeed of inferior promise;— Associations for work- ing Mexican, Brazilian, and Chilian mines;— the cultivation of Australia,— and a hundred other coin- binations for the employment of John Bull's super- fluous capital, all as " greedily swallowed up, it becomes of real importance to enquire, when and how this ostrich appetite ( which, not content with the digestion of iron rail- roads in England, won Id- fa in masticate the mineral productions of foreign countries) is likely to be satiated? Not, we fear, until his pocket has paid pretty liberally for his credulity. Of all plans for the employment of British capital, at this moment, we are the most earnestly opposed to those which are the means of transporting our solid pounds, shillings, and pence into foreign countries,— for their convenience and aggrandize- ment; and this feeling has uniformly prevented our sympathizing iu the slightest degree, with British speculators in Continental loans, in the' losses and disappointments, especially those furnished under the influence of party prejudice. We think persons who, in spite of the good ad vice lavished qualmish ; dispose of their interest In the specula- tion ; and shares in the Company sink as rapidly to a discount, as they had previously risen to a premium. With ihe great body of the Sub seibersthe cry is sauve qui peut ; and they get out of the seiape with as littie loss and inconvenience as they can. If our Readers would convince them- selves that this picture is not an exaggerated one, let them refer to the files of any of the Morning Papers, for tiie last few months, for a confirmation of the correctness of our statements. Ii may be objected, that persons of respectability will not lend their names in Cases of this description ; but the line in matters of mere speculation, is not always very nicely drawn. Many persons who would not do wliat the usages of society have Stig- matised as dishonourable, vvould have no scruple whatever in winning their neighbours' money in a gatning> hy> ns6, of on the Stock Exchange. « All the property of which the sufferer is fleeced at such resorts, is considered as spoil placed by the fortune of war at the disposal of the winner, with which it is not dishonourable for him to enrich himself.

Magaiine thus laments the discontinuance of the Lottery The true mental epicure always purchased his ticket early, and postponed inquiry into its fate to the last possible moment, during the whole of which intervening* period he had an ima- ginary twenty thousand locked up in his desk— and was not this well worth all the money? Who would scruple to give twenty pounds interest for even the deal enjoyment of as many thousands during two or three months ? 44 Crede quod habes, et hakes" and usufruct of such a capital is surely not dear at i a price. Some years ago, a gentleman in pass a'ong Cheapside saw the figures 1069, of which n- iml- er he was the sole proprietor, flaming on the window of a lottery office as a capital prize. Some- what flurried by this discovery, not less welcome than unexpected, he resolved to walk round St. Paul's that he might consider. in what way tocommu nicate the happy tidings to his wife and family ; but upon repassing- the shop, he observed that the num- ber w is altered to 10^ 69, and upon inquiry, had the mixtifieation to learn that his ticket was blank, and bad only been stuck up in the window by a mistake f the clerk. This effectually calmed his agitation, but he always speaks of himself as having once pos- sessed twenty thousand pounds, and maintains that his ten minutes' walk round St. Paul's was worth ten t mes the purchase- money of the ticket. A prize btained has moreover this special advantage;— it is beyond the reach of fate, it cannot be squan lered, bankruptcy cannot lay siege to it, friends cannot pull it down, nor enemies blow it up; it bears a charmed life, and none of woman born can break its integrity, even by the dissipation of a single frac- tion, Shewjj me the property in these perilous times that is equally coin- pact and. impregnable. We can no longer become enriched for a quarter of an hour we can no longer succeed in such Splendid failures; all our chances of making. soch a miss have vanished with the last of the Lotteries. Life will now become a flat, prosaic routine of matter- of- fact; and sleep itself, erst so prolific of numerical configurations and mysterious stimulants to lottery adventure, will be disfurnished of its figures and figments. People will cease to harp upon the one lucky number suggested in a dream, nd which forms the exception, while they are scru pnloUsly silent upon the ten thousand falsified dreams which constitute the rule. Morpheus will stifl- e Cocker with a handful of poppies, and our pillows will be no longer haunted by the book of ntimbe: And who, too, shall maintain the art and mystery of puffing in ail its pristine glory when the lottery professors shall have abandoned its cultivation? They were the first, as they will assuredly be the last, who fully developed the resources of that inge- nious art; who cajoled and decoyed the most suspi ciousand wary reader into a perusal of their advert isements by devices of endless variety and cunning ; who baited their lurking schemes with midnight murders, ghost stories, erim cons, bon mots, balloons dreadful catastrophes, and every diversity of joy and sorrow to catch newspaper- gudgeons. Ought not such talents to be encouraged ? Verity the abolition- ists have much to answer for! And now, having established the felicity of all those who gained imaginary prizes, let us proceed to shew that the equally numerous class who were presented wilh real blanks, have not less reason to consider thCm- were allowed, which, according to ancient enstom, was always announced by the words, 44 No orders can be admitted." A spacious soup kitchen was erected in the rear of each theatre, from which the actors received their salary bv the day, in basons. Successful authors, in lieu of the receipts of the third night, received a perpetual free admission to the kitchen. The Parsons, especially the Dissenters, found it difficult to arrange their collections. Instead of having persons Stand with small plates, as had once been the practice, to receive shillings and sixpences, two trucks were stationed right aiid left of the doors on the outside, into which the congregation, paying ns they went in, instead of as they came out, pitched bread, beef- steaks, bunches of carrots, mouse- traps, tinder- boxes, and other articles. I remember once, on attending a sermon, preached for the ad- vantage of a Rev. Gentleman, who had been dis- abled by a paralytic stroke, I contributed a new wicker cage, with a cock magpie who had lost his voice. The Chancellor of the Exchequer was obliged to give up his customary budget, and introduce a new system of duties in kind. I had an opportunity of hearing a Right Hon. Gentleman, who filled that situation, very pathetically lament, that the " over- production" of gold then, was as great an evil as the " over- prodire- lion" of grain had been formerly.— Once, he added, the difficulty was how to get gold ; then, the question to be put was how to spend it, for the nation already resounded with the lamentations of those who had been creditors of the state, but w ho had been paid off in gold, which was useless, as it would buy nothing. The physicians complained, that they suffered from not being judges of the. articles which they claimed as fees. At last, however, they understood the value of commodities, generally, better than the complaints of their patients. 1 have seen Doctor Lancet, with his carriage so crammed with various articles of furniture, that he looked like a broker, or dealer in marine stores, making his escape before quarter- day. " A new circulating medium," we must have; 14 a new circulating* medium," was the cry on all sides. It was necessary, as the metals, once called precious, now began to he used for the meanest pur poses. It will create astonish inent at the present day to state it, but, I actually stared like a conjuror, when I first saw a warming pan of solid silver, and, I verily believe, that if we had then seen, what is now an every- dav spectacle, a poor ragged labourer, cooking beef sausages in a golden frying? pan, we should have questioned his honesty, and suspected him of robbing the mint— a building in which metals were manufactured into what was then called money. But what ought the new circulating medium to be ? This was a question which puzzled many. Salt was proposed by an Oxford scholar, who said the idea was classical. But the hint was thought unseasona- ble ; the ClergjMdid uot relish it; and the Players said, they did not wish, iu that way, to get salt to their broth, Lead was next suggested. This, however, proved to have been set afloat by the proprietor of one of the mines in Derbyshire. It was opposed, as bearing aome resemblance to tlie old circulating medium, which was always said to be too easily melted. An Honourable Gentleman, now no more, made a motion for the adoption of leather, as money. But unfortunately for his plan, it was proved, before a Committee of the House of Commons, that, for the preceding three months, the firm to which he belonged had been buying up ( by barter) all the hides at Leadenhall Blarket. This threw discredit on the scheme. At length it was recollected, that certain enlight- ened nations, on the banks of the Congo and Gambia, used cowries as money. It was proposed that we hould do the same. The philanthropists liked the idea; as, they contended, with such a circulating medium, there would be wo forgery or coining, two crimes, the nature of which can hardly now be described. On mature deliberation, this hint was approved and adopted. It was agreed that the large spotted shells should pass for five pounds, the small ones for twenty shillings. By the same Act, which established this arrangement, it was provided that guineas and sovereigns ( pieces similar to the dumps which boys play with now) should be used as small change. This was a great relief to the nation in general, but to me in particular. My poor wife, l\ frs.. Plod- ding ton, had always been in the habit of twitting me wilh " the fortune she had brought me." I was al- lowed to lead a peaceable life, from the moment in About the history of William Spiller, who was Gazetted on Saturday, as Adjutant of the 94th regiment, now stationed at Gibraltar, with the | rank of Ensign, there is something rather curious and interestingj which deserves to be noticed as at ! once creditable to the individual and honourable to | the service, in which there are not seen too many promotions from the ranks, & e is said to be related lo the Messrs. Spillers about the House of Com- mons— one of whom is the excellent Librarian, and the other a Messenger. William Spiller was, what j is termed, rather and amongst other pranks entered the 43d regiment as a private soldier. He served in the Peninsular war, and was in several engagements. He had an excellent education, and with it considerable ability; and he gradually rose till he became the Serjeant- Major of the 43d regi- ment. Had a vacancy occurred in such regiment* doubtlessly he would have obtained a commission in it— such was the respect felt for him by the officers, and this is saying a good deal, as the 43d is a 44 crack" regiment, with some " Honoftrables" amongst the officers. By the removal of Ensign Adjutant Coward, who was dismissed the service on Court Martial, having been engaged in bargain- ing for extra rateage for a commission, a vacancy arose in the 94th, and Mr. William Spiller has been promoted to such vacancy, with the rank of En- sign. The 94th regiment is also at Gibraltar, FATAL PUGILISTIC ENCOUNTER.— Stone, a cabinet- maker, the only support of an aged and blind father, in Ogle- street, was drinking at a low public- house in St. Giles's, on Wednesday last, with one Packer, a butcher, formerly in the employ of Mr. Evans, Store- street, Bedford- square, when a quarrel occurred between them, in the course of which Stone threw a tobacco pipe at the head of Packer, who immediately put himself in an attitude for fighting, and two rounds were fought in the tap room. The landlord interfered, with much dif- ficulty separated the combatants, and endeavoured to persuade them to shake hands and be friends; but Stone was not satisfied— he declared a he would fight the battle out." Ultimately two sovereigns were deposited, to be fought for on the Sunday morning following. On Sunday the parties met iu afield near Chalk- farm, each attended by his second and bottle- holder, and the set- to commenced at about ten o'clock. A large concourse of the fancy attended— that is to say, the men were surrounded by the lowest blackguards in London ; Packer possessed what is called science, and was, therefore, enabled to plant many dreadful blows on the head and neck of his antagonist. The battle lasted three- quarters of an hour, at the end of w hich time poor Stone dropped in a tit, and after a kind of hysterical laugh, expired on the spot. Packer was immediately conveyed to bed, in a remote quarter of the town; he did not escape without receiving much injury, on his ribs in particular, where there are several lumps as large as a man's hand, and he has been speechless ever since. It is needless to say that the families of both parties are plunged in the deepest affliction. It may not be amiss to mention, that similar disgraceful scenes are con- tinually occurring in this part of the metropolis on the Sabbath- day. 8el ves happy, ftlost of us have cause to he thankful for that which is bestowed, but we have all, probably, J which she found that the five hundred pounds, oar,., » ..

In the Litany, in- deed, we call upon the Lord to deliver us in all time of our wealth;" but how few of 11s are sincere iu deprecating such a calamity Massinger's Luke, and Ben Jonson's Sir. Epicure Mammon,- and Pope's Sir Balaam, and our own daily observation might convince us that the devil u now tempts by making ich, not making poor," We may read in the Guardian a circumstantial account of a ihan who was utterly ruined by gaining a capital prize:— we may ecollect what Dr. Johnson said to Garrick, when the latter was making a display of his wealth at Hampton Court,— 44 Ah, David! David! these are the things that make a death- bed terrible;"— we may recal the scripture declaration, as to the diffi- culty a rich man finds in entering into the Kingdom of Heaven, and combining* all these denunciations gainst opulence, let us heartily congratulate one another upon our lucky escape from the calamity of a twenty or thirty thousand pound prize! The fox in the fable, who accused the unattainable grapes of sourness, was more of a philosopher than we are generally willing to allow. He wras an adept in that pecies of moral alchemy, which turns every thing to gold, and converts disappointment itself into a ground of resignation and content. Such we have shewn to be the great lesson inculcated by the lottery when ightly contemplated ; and if we might parody M. de Chateaubriand's juggling expression,— 44 le Roi est ort, vive le Roiy" we should be tempted fo exclaim, The Lottery is 110 mote— long live the Lottery 1" which she possessed when I married her, were now of less valwe than so many Blackamoors teethe ilSiscsllaneous Intelligence. Admirals Sir Edward Thornborough and Sir Eliab Harvey have been appointed Knights Grand Crosses, and Rear- Admiral YYilliam Charles Fabie, a Knight Commander, of the Most Honourable I ripened a fortnight before the other. Ihe upon them by some of our respectable contem- poraries, persisted in lending their money to the Descanrisados of Spain, have only themselves to thank for the serious losses they have sustained. It is morally certain that some of the plans now before the public, have been set afloat without any thing like a minute inquiry as to their probable chances of success, merely with a view to benefit the parties with whom they have originated. We allude more particularly to many of those which have been commenced in the metropolis. The course is easy, and the result almost certain. A dozen influential names are clubbed together foi the formation of a Company ( no matter for what object) : the line of operation is discussed and approved ; and each of the committee reserves for himself, under his own name, and those of his friends, a considerable number of shares. Prospectuses are then issued, the newspapers paragraphed ; appli- cations flow in from all quarters; and shares are almost immediately at a premium. Of this ad- vantage the chief proprietors immediately avail themselves, sell out at a profit, and the shareholders, instead of finding the management of their property committed to the honourable and well- known indi- viduals originally advertised as the promoters of the scheme, see it pass under the management of people of whom they know nothing, Or worse than nothing — mere jobbers and speculators— on whose judgment and honesty they can consequently place but slender reliauce ; the more wary of them accordingly grow My Grandson's Life and Times. [ TO BE WRITTEN BY HIMSELF IN 1925 ] Born in 1850, and having reached the advanced age of seventy- fi ve, it might he expected, in the ordinary course of events, that I should he acquainted with many facts vvell calculated both to interest and sur- prise those who are now in their youth ; but some of the changes which I have seen, are so singular, that ihose to whom they are told, will wonder, not that things are as they now are, but that such a state of society ever could exist as that which was wit- nessed in England wifhin the last century. Of political changes 1 may speak hereafter,. but here t particularly allude to alterations in the neral economy of life. A century ago, nay, within my own recollec- tion, the circulating medium of this country con- sisted of gold, silver, and copper. The mines of South America had furnished but few samples of the first and second, and, in consequence of their scarcity, they were called the " precious metal Ludicrous as it must sound, to persons of our habits, the production of a few small pieces of gold would readily obtain all the articles in common use. For these the mechanic gave his labour, the merchant his goods, and the doctor his medicine. 1 was but a lad when the mines were brought into full play. The effects of what was called the success of the speculators who worked them, were curious enough. Individuals, who had been wonderfully enriched, from the uncommonly high charges made for all articles of daily consumption, soon found that their present incomes would not purchase more thau an eighth of what the same sum could formerly have bought. For a time, larger and larger sums continued to be demanded^ but, in the end, no quantity of bullion would procure the necessaries of life. The old denominations were still in use, but articles could only be bought by barter. Nothin was more common than for a butcher, when asked tlie price of a leg of mutton, to reply, u It is half a crown a pound, but we can't take gold or silver." The lawyers, who, at the beginning, had raised their fees from six shillings and eightpence to thir teen and fourpence, soon found that with this in creased charge, they could not get powder for their wigs. Besides the bags in which their briefs were carried, their clerks were now charged with others, iu which were usually deposited their fees, which were commonly paid in bottles of wine, calves' head*, and geese, raw and roasted. At the theatres, as it was of 110 use to pay 01* receive money, an alteration was made in the prices of ad- mission. At the doors, a turkey paid for admission to the boxes, a capon for the pit, aud pounds and half- pounds of pickle pork for the first and second gal- leries. Watches, household furniture, and wearing ap- parel, were also received for admission, but these it was necessary lo send to the box- office, where proper inspectors were appointed to attend. Excepting poultry, no fresh meat was received at the doors, save on those nights when free admissions Military Or^ er of the Bath.— Gazette The King has granted unto Edmund Barneby, Esq. of Salt marsh, Herefordshire, and his issue, his royal licence and authority to take and use the surname of Htgginson only, and bear the ai nrs of that family quarterly with his own, in compliance with the will of William Htgg insoo, Esq, of Berners- str^ et.— Gazette. The King of the Netherlands hag intimated, in form, to our Government, bis intention of imitating its example, by recognizing the independence of the South American States. Dispatches, dated the 1st of October, were re- ceived On YVednesday morning at the Colonial Office, from Colonel Grant, at Cape Coast Castle. The Ashantees, in retiring, had laid waste the country, and reduced many of our native allies to the greatest distress. Col. Grant was under the neeessity of supplying them with provisions, and had obtained, in furtherance of that object, a considerable quan- tity of rice from Sierra Leone. The garrison was ffering in consequence of the dryness of the weather. CRIM. CON.-— In the Court of King's Bench, on Monday, an action was brought, 44 Cox v. Kean," in which the plaintiff, an Alderman of London, sought to recover compensation from the defendant, the celebrated Tragic Actor, for cri- minal conversation wilh the plaintiff's wife. The defendant is a married man; and the damages were laid at £ 2000. A variety of lelters addressed by defendant to the plaintiff's wife under a feigned name, and which were written in a most vulgar and unseemly style, were produced on the part of the plaintiff, together with several witnesses ; and from this testimony there could be no doubt of a criminal intercourse having taken place.— On the part of the defendant, witnesses were brought, whose testimony went lo insinuate that the plain- tiff had connived at his own dishonour, and to show that Mrs. Cox had been guilty with two other individuals.— The Jury returned a verdict for plaintiff, with £ 800 damages. MEETING OF BRITISH CATHOLICS.— A general meeting of the English Catholics was held on Monday at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, in the Strand, for the purpose of adopting such measures as should seem best for obtaining a re- pialofth^ se laws which exclude them from the constitutional privileges enjoyed by their Protestant fellow- subjects. About one o'clock the chair was taken by the Hon. Hugh Clifford. The meeting consisted of about 300 persons, amongst whom were Charles Butler, Esq.; James YVheble, Esq.; Edward Blount, Esq ; the Rev. Dr. Collins, the Rev. Messrs. Rolfe, Horrabin, Dobson, M4Donuell, of London, M'Dounell, of Birmingham, Foley, Appleby, Delaney, Morris, and many other persons of great respectability. Mr. Eneas Macdonnell attended as the representative of the Catholic As sociation of Ireland. Letters of apology for non- attendance were read by the Chairman from Lords Stafford, Stourton, and Clifford. A petition, pro- posed by Mr. Quin, aud seconded by Mr. Rosson, was unanimously adopted, and ordered to be presented to both houses of parliament. It was then resolved unanimously, on the motion of Dr. Collins, that Earl Grey be requested to present the same to the House of Lords, aud Lord Nugent to the House of Commqns. A motion was then made by Mr. Rolfc, and seconded by Mr. YTheble, thank- ing Mr. O'Connell and the Catholic Association of Ireland for their great exertions in the cause of emancipation; assuring them of the cordial union and co- operation of the Catholics of England, and expressing the most unqualified satisfaction and approbation at the conduct hitherto pursued by that body. This motion was carried with the most enthusiastic applause! Coals were first used in London in the reign of Edward the First, and the smoke was supposed to corrupt Ihe air so much, that he forbad the use of them by proclamation. As corn is becoming an article of greater consider ation than ever, the following may serve as a hint to those land- holders in whose hands quantities of land may lay :— 41 YVaste lands in Great Britain, by examination in 1794, were found to be 22,351,000 acres, which, if cultivated and enclosed, reckoning an annual increase of 9s. an acre, ihe annual rent would amount to £ 10,057* 650; and on a supposi- tion that the yearly produce would be £ 1. 7s. per acre on three rents, it would be worth £ 30,173,850 per annum to the community." SEED CORN.— T. Andrew Knight, Esq. iu a recent communication to the Hereford Journal says— 44 A good deal of the strong wheat soil of Herefordshire remains unsown, and must be sown in the end of this month, or in the next, and it is important to select seed corn of early habits. I tried the experiment of selecting seed wheat from a warm gravelly soil in a warm part of the county, and other seed wheat of the savie variety, ( the common red- straw,) from a cold white clayey soil, in a very cold part of the county. Both were sowed at the same time, and upon contiguous ridges, w hen the crop which sprang from the seed corn which had grown upon a warm gravelly soil The advan- tages of selecting such seed must be obvious to your readers. I have stated facts. The trans actions of the Horticultural Society show that fruits, such as the apple and pear, and perennial plants, acquire in hot climates habits of ripening late, whilst cultivated natural plants acquire the power of ripening early by having, through suc- cessive generations, bad their period of maturity I" accelerated. The Scotch farmers purchase seed barley from the warmest soils in England ; having found that the crop which1 springs from this will ripen, upon their cold hills^ nearly three weeks earlier than those varieties which have adapted their habits to their late aud cold climate." FEUDAL JUSTICE.— It may not be generally known, that in the Vale or Glen of Garry, a monu- ment is erected sufficiently characteristic of the ancient spirit of the lairds of the Highlands of Scot- land, and at the same time calculated to fill every feeling and civilized mind with horror. Before we give a description of it, it is necessary to explain, that upwards of 200 years ago, a noble family hav- ing made several of its vassals experience some acts of in justice, several of them joined and destroy- ed part of the family ; or, at least, every probabi- lity indicated them as perpetrators of the deed. Immediately the laird, in whose clan the crime had been committed, sent his satellites with orders neither more nor less than to bring* to him the seven heads of the offenders. These unfortunate men were found concealed in a cavern whither they had fled for refuge. There they were beheaded, and their heads were carried to a spring* near Glengarry Castle and washed ; when they were thus rendered more fit to be presented, they were carried to the laird who had demanded them. Over this small spring 011 the banks of Loch Oich now rises pyramid, with four faces, the shaft of which bears seven heads fixed in a circle on the summit of the pyramid, thus offering on all sides their hideous features. Their hair bristling on their skulls is grasped by an enormous hand, holding a dagger or dirk from which blood is dropping. On the four faces of the pedestal or base of the pyramid, is written in French, in English, in Latin, and in Gaelic, the inscription which serves as an explan- ation to the monument: As a memorial of the ample and summary Yeng- eance which, in the swift course of Feudal Justice, inflicted by the orders of The Lord Mc l) onnell and Aross, overtook the perpetrators of the foul murder of the Heppoch Family, a branch of the powerful and illustrious Clan of which his Lordship was the Chief; this Monument is erected by- Colonel Mc Donnell, of Glengarry, ViriT TVT.. ^ L.; XVII. Mac- mhiae- alaister, his successor anil representative, ia the year of our Lord 1812. The heads of the seven murderers were presented at the feet of the noble Chief, in Glengarry Castle, after having been washed in this spring, and ever since that event, which took place early in the Sixteenth Century, it has been known by the name of " Tobaz- nan- ceann," or The Well of the Heads. The existence of this barbarous and infamous monument ought to be proclaimed throughout the British Empire, that the present race of Britons may duly appreciate the difference which exists between arbitrary sentences, the prompt, the haughty exterminators of feudal tyrants, and the constitutional verdicts of our free juries.— This monument was executed by a skilful artist at Edin- burgh, and is said to hare cost aa trifling sum. TURSMKE ACT,— 111 a neighbouring print there is a long paragraph relating lo the lire, shape, and breadth of Wheels to be used after the Isl of January, 18- 2G, agreeably to Ihe " General Turn, pike Act passed the ( ith of August, 1822."— Fortbtf information of Wheelwrights, Farmers, & c. whom" il immediately concerns, we have merely ( o stale that the law, as laid down iu Ihe paragraph W which we allude, was repeated by the Act 4th Geo/ IV. c. 95, sections 1 and 3.— By the last. mentioned Act, the regulations of the former Act as to the shape of Ihe surfaee and as to the breadth of w heels of waggons, carls, & c. used on any turnpike road, are done away; but it is enacted thai, after the 1st of January, 1826, the nails of the tire of the wheels of such waggons, carts, & c. shall be so countersunk,- as not lo project beyond one quarter of an inch above any part of the surface of the tire, under a penalty not exceeding 4Us. on ( lie owner, aud uot exceeding 20s. ou ihe driver. PARLIAMENT.— Both Houses of Parliament will be opened on Thursday week, Ihe 3d of Feb. ruary, by the King in Person. There is NOW NO EXPECTATION whatever of the LEGISLATURK being DISSOLVED this year ; but such an event is by no means unlikely to lake place iu Ihe SPRING of 1826. REVENUE ARRANGEMENTS— The long. con- templated changes in English and Irish Revenue Officers, are likely lo be put into operation, before April. The departments of the Customs and Ex- cise are already decided upon, and await but the sanction of the Lords of the Treasury, which is expected every day. The most prosperous book of Ibis season has been " The Scotsman's Library." It addresses itself to a reading nation, but it is not less favoured by readers south of Ihe T weed, by exhibiting, at lenglb, all those traditions, customs, aud characters, ou which Ihe novels aud romances of Scottish literature are founded. ANOTHER FATAL ACCIDENT FROM A SPRING GUN.— On Thursday evening, an inquisition was Inken before Mr. Brook, corouer, ou view of the body of Thomas Bow ling, labourer, of Wakefield, when the following evidence was adduced :— Mary Bowling, mother of the deceased, slated that about half- past eight o'clock on Tuesday evening, her sou le ft home, alleging that he was going with a cart to Leeds j the following morning, about six o'clock, hearing some persons come up the yard, she went down stairs, and saw three or four men bringing in her son, who said he was very ill. The men carried him up siairs, put him to bed, and went away, saying they would fetch a doctor. She knew not any of the parly. Mr. Taylor, Ihe surgeon's assistant, dressed his Wound, anil he was after- wards visited by. Mr. Dawson, surgeon. To a question asked by his mother, be answered that he had been shot by a spring gun, but did not stale where. He was then in a dying state. Deceased was 26 years of age. The two surgeons who hail attended him described the injury he had received on tl\ e groin and belly as a gun shot wound, and did not hesitate in declaring it to be ihe sole came of his dealh ; to one of w hom be confessed that he received his injury from a spring gun, but would not say where. He expired about two o'clock yesterday morning. Verdict—" That the said Thomas Bowling was brought home early oit Wednesday morning, having received a severe wound from a spring gun on his groin and belly, which caused his death, but by whom set, or where, is unknown to the said jurors."—— Wakejitld Journal. CAUTION TO YOUNG RINGERS— O. I Christ, mas- eve, a shocking accident occurred at Bring.. burst, near Uppingham. A youth, about 14, wa » engaged al Ihe church, with others, in ringing, when his bell overset, aud instantly pulled him up lo the ceiling with such force that one of his arms was fractured, aud in descending from the ceiling, he fell in a dreadful way to the ground, and expired iu a short time after. CAUTION TO PARISH OFFICERS.— A shoit lime since, a complaint was made before the Magistrates of Ross, against ( he Assistant Over- seer of the parish, for paying Ihe poor with Irish or harp copper, contrary to Ihe Statute ( 9th Geo. 3d c. 37, sec. 1) which enacts, " That any over- seers paying the poor ill any other coin than the lawful coin of Great Britain, shall for each ofl'ence forfeit a sum not less than 10s. nor exceeding 20s.*," but the Magistrates wishing to be satisfied that Ihe Irish copper was not lawful coin of Great Britain, caused a letter to be written lo the Master of the Mini, who returned for answer, " That Irish coin never having been declared Ihe legal coin of this country by any proclamation of his Majesty, could only pass in circulation bt/ the consent of the party receiving it." The Magis- trates decided, on Friday last, that the defendant must be fined; but the prosecutor kindlv con- senting not to press the case, upon the defendant's expressing his contrition for Ihe offence, the fines were remitted ; other wise the whole would have been exlremely heavy, as there were upwards of one hundred cases which couhi have been proved against him. In 1747, Admiral Hawke defeated the French fleet, and observed, in his letter, that the enemy's ships, being large, took a good deal of drubbhia. A little before ibis the Duke of Bedford bad re- ceived a horsewhipping from a country farmer on Lichfield race- course. When news of the victory arrived, the Earl of Chesterfield was in attendance, • eading the despatches to the King, who stopped at the word drubbing, and asked his lordship the meaning of it; the Duke of Bedford, at that moment, entered the closet, and the earl said,. sarcastically, 44 I do not exactly know; but he" e is his Grace of Bedford, who can, I have no doubt, explain it lo your Majesty's satisfaction." Wrhen Mr. Wilherforce was candidate for Hull, his sister, an amiable aud witty young lady, offered ihe compliment of a new gown to each of ihe wives of those freemen who voted for her brother: o: i which she was saluted with the cry of 44 Miss VVilberforce for ever /" When she pleasantly observed, 44 I thank you, gentlem en; but I cannot agree with you, for really I do uot wish to be Miss Wilberforce. for ever." A delightful addition lo the clerical library has been made by a dignitary of Ihe Church, entilled DIVINITY AND DIVINF. S." The work consists of rare aud interesting ecclesiastical anecdotes, and morsels of theological literature, from the age of the Fathers to the present day ; illustrated by por- traits, views, fan similes, & c. & c. The materials have beeu drawn chiefly from MSS. and scarce books in the Museum, Bodleian, and Sion College Libraries. The population of Cheltenham is now estimated at 20,000. Previous to 1806 the number of inha- bitants was said to be 3,076, and of inhabited houses 710. On Ihe Census in 1821, the former had risen to 13,388 ; since which not less than 700 additional houses have been assessed to the poor- rates. Upwards of 500 houses are now building, and as many more in contemplation. Fox CHASE.— On Thursday the fox- hounds of Sir T. Stanley bad one of the finest runs that has been known in that part of the country during ihe season. Reynard was unkennelled in Stauney- vvood ; after passing through 13 parishes, and a chase of two hours and twenty minutes, lie was killed in the parish of Hawardcn.
