CRUELTY to ANIMALS attracts now universal and praise- worthy attention. The poor dog is by one class expected to perform the work of an ass; the ass is by another set called apon to sbovy the strength and agility of the horse; and the noble generous horse isbeaten, bruised, and shamefully abused, because his muscular powers are not calculated absolutely to compete with the high- pressure steam- engine, or vacuum produced by almost supernatural means, and this often when his natural strength and spirit have been exhausted by previ- ous hard labour and brutality. To check, at least, this climax of barbarism, the Society at Exeter Hall, Strand, most earnestly implores the personal exertions of all ranks. The new Act of Parliament and proper Directions are ready for distribu- tion gratuitously, adapted for all pocket- books, at the Office, 3, Exeter Hall. N. B.

CAUTION to FAMILIES FURNISHING.— Messrs. MILES and EDWARDS, of 134, Oxford- street, consider it again due to the Nobility and Gentry, and likewise to themselves, to state that they have but one Esta- blishment ( which is a few doors West of Holies- street), and that they are not in any way connected with another House in Oxford- street using their name. CARPETS! CARPETS!!

P. has adopted of purchasing for ready- money from Manufacturers of the first respectability, enableshim to supply Goods of the best quality at full 5> 5 per cent, under any other Ho s se in the trade.

In consequence of the great increase of traffic between the two first mentioned places, and the great probability of their more intimate union, the Directors feel authorised in recommending the present scheme, as a " safe speculation " to the public. The Act which obtained the concurrence of the Lower House of Parliament during the last Session in spite of unexampled opposition, and which was ulti- mately thrown out, whether from prejndice or interest, by the House of Lords, will be again applied for next. Session, and from the weight of the names on the Committees, the Directors feel convinced that it only requires a repeated and determined application to carry their point. The line has been selected on the levelling principle, in order to avoid as much as possible the necessity of Piers, and there will be but one Great Bore during the whole line. It is proposed, that the Railway shall commence from Downing- street, West- minster, pass directly through St. James's, avoiding Constitution- hill, and having Depots at most of the new Metropolitan districts, proceed ( for the present) across Middlesex; and though it will unavoidably cut up some considerable orna- mental and valuable property, yet the Landholders will no doubt soon become sensible of their great ultimate advantages, and in the menn time it may be satisfactory for th'em to know, that the chief Locomotive Machine is warranted to consume its own smoke. Itis erroneously supposed by some that the Railway will give a monopoly to the Company, who will engross all the profits of the traffic; such, however, is not the object of the Directors, who are warm advocates for Free Trade: the Railway will be perfectly open to all who are desirous to embark in it ( it may be right to state that the inclination will not be more than 1 in 1,000), and nothing more will be required of them but to subscribe to the ordinary Oath of Allegiance to the Pope, and pay the necessary expenses of any Rents that may require to be repaired. It is most gratifying to announce that wherever the Tram System has been established, the increase of traffic and the rate of travelling have been accelerated with a rapidity almost alarming, but while it is the wish of the Directors to in- crease this to the utmost by means of vapour and high pressure, and so to put all slow coaches at once out of fashion, it is at the same time proposed to make the movement as imperceptible as possible, and from the arrangements which the Directors have been enabled to effect, all agitation in the principal machine is for the present entirely suppressed. The advantages of this line will be apparent to any one who examines the Chart of England, as he will at once see that this line must inevitably form the main Chan- nel for the Export of British Goods, and the Importation of Irish Manufactures, From their connexion with Government^ the Directors firmly rely on the con- veyance of all Police and Election News, more especially from the disturbed coun- ties— Government Contracts— Bills drawn on Dublin— Witnesses on Election Committees in London, or Election Commissions in Dublin, & c. By it any numberof Whitefeet, Liberators, Repealers, & c. can be brought up to London on the shortest notice, and as economy is one great advantage of the plan, it is pre- sumed that it will generally be adopted by the Irish Members— on which suppo- sition the following estimates have been made:— Irish Members .. .. .. .. .. .. .. 105 Ditto Pigs 100,000 100,105 40 Or, throwing the two together Deduct the tails of the former, which go for nothing Leaving a clean remainder behind .. .. .. .. 100,065 Both of which may be fairly expected to be doubled when this Railway is in operation .. .. .. .. .. .. 200,130 Add Emigrant Clergy and their Families at the lowest .. .. 10,000 Ditto Protestant Landlords and their Rent- rolls .. .. .. 5,000 Total amount of Passengers for the first year .. .. 215,130 Great account may also be made of Irish raw produce, and cattle of all descrip- tions, especially articles of a more perishable nature, which will not bear the expense of carriage, on the present system— as Patriots'Vows— Roman Catholic Oaths— Irish Honour— Election Promises, and Repeal Pledges. Title Deeds of Tithes — Rent and Rint— Advowsons — Building Materials of Old Churches, & c. & c. And the following articles of Foreign produce, viz.:— Roman Catholic Bishops, Deaths' Heads and Cross Bones, Stilettoes, Nuns, Trappists, Infernal Machines, Jesuits, Indulgences, Dens' Theology, Ballot and Begging Boxes, & c. The in- crease in the quantity of these articles it is presumed will be very great, and no credit is taken for the improvement in quality. When the new system has come fully into operation, it is intended to divide the whole capital among the original Shareholders only, by equitable adjust- ment : and in the event of the present line proving advantageous to the Sub- scribers ( of which the Directors entertain no doubt), it is proposed to extend the line ( the ground being remarkably well adapted to the purpose), by means of inclined planes. " Smooth, easy, inoffensive, down to Hell." Thus realising the " glorious work" of the first Great Railroad- Projector, and make " Hell an. l this world, one realm, one continent " Of easy thoroughfare." ggp5 No Subscriber will be liable beyond the amount of his Share, " in any event- or contingency whatever." For further particulars apply to J. Raphael, Esq., Old Jewry; the Right Hon. Lord Melbourne, Downing- street; and Daniel O'Connell, Esq., M. P., ( until further notice) at Brookes's. HT^ ASTEIIN COUNTIES RAILWAY, from London to Norwich EPi and Yarmouth, by Romford. Chelmsford, Colchester, and Ipswich. Capital ^' 1,500,000,— In Shares of .^ 25 ; Deposits. The Provisional Committee have great pleasure in informing the Subscribers to this undertaking, that it appears from the Reports of the Deputation of their Body, appointed to confer with the principal resident Gentlemen of Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, that it has the approbation and assent of a very large majority ofthe owners of property along the whole line, and will have the cordial support of the Nobility, Gentry, and people at large of these Counties. Bv Order of the Provisional Committee, _ Eastern Counties Railway Office, Nov. 16,1835. J. C. ROBERTSON, Sec. Public Meetings have been since held at Chelmsford, Colchester, and Ipswich, at each of which the merits of the undertaking were very fully discussed, strong resolutions in its favour passed, local committees appointed to promote its success, and the different county and borough Members requested to support it in 1 arlia- ment. . , _ The plans, sections, and books of reference, of the whole line, have been also duly lodged with the different Clerks of the Peace, and every other necessary pre- paration made for applying for an Act of Parliament in the next Session. Applications for the remaining Shares may be made ( if by letter, post- paid) to the Secretary, or to any of the bankers, solicitors, or agents to the Company. Subscribers are not liable for more than their first deposit of per share till the Act of Parliament is obtained ; nor will they be afterwards responsible for more than the amount of their respective shares, which will be called for in instalments of not more than at a time, with an interval of three months between every two instalments.

BOOKS FOR FAMILIES AM> BOOK SOCIETIES.— The excellent new system which Mr. Bull, the librarian of 19, Holies- street, has estab- lished for supplying families and individuals regularly with books for perusal upon the most advantageous terms to them, he has just followed up by another system for the supply of large and small book societies in all parts of the kingdom, and which he has so planned that every member is ensured the opportunity of perusing all the new and expensive literature, as well as English and foreign standard works, throughout the year, for only one guinea. Applica- tions for terms, stating whether for a family or book society, should be addressed to Mr. Bull, the librarian, 19, Holies- street. The principal news in the Paris papers relates to the possible rnn- ture with America, and the trials of the prisoners implicated in the affair of Luneville. The latter commenced on Saturday before the Court of Peers. One of them, named Thomas, commenced an elo- quent attack upon the system pursued by Louis Philippe, but was stopped by the President, whereupon all his fellow- prisoners declared that they would take no part in the debates, and subsequently re- fused to answer the questions put to them. The examination ot wit- nesses was closed on Monday, and the Court adjourned till Wednes- day, on which day the Procureur- General was to bring in his requi- sitoire, after which the defence of the prisoners was to be entered npon. The defence was to be an ex- officio one, the prisoners having declined the aid of counsel. Not a word is said about any day being fixed for the. appearance of Fieschi at the bar. The Constitutionnel has published a letter, dated Genoa, the 22d nit., from a correspondent, whom it represents to be well informed. " There can," he says, " be no doubt that preparations are being made here to assist ' Don Carlos by a landing in Spain. There is here an agent of that Prince. A few days ago he received highly important despatches from Don Carlos's agent at Naples, Don Alvares de Toledo, which have gladdened all his partisans. I can assure you that they stated that Russia and other Northern Powers took a lively interest in the cause of Don Carlos; that their interest would not be confined to wishes, nor even to pecuniary assistance; that in a very short time their support would prove an efficient one ; and that a Russian fleet would soon arrive in the Mediterranean. This is a certain fact." The alleged insurrection at Cagliari is now contradicted on all hands. Even the Berlin State Gazette denies that there was founda- tion for the rumour. The French papers assert that the account given of it, like that of a revolution in Greece, had been a fabrication of the Frankfort Bourse. The Odessa Gazette states that the latest news received from Persia was satisfactory. Tranquillity was once more establishing itself. Sir H. Bethune had, by his successes, nearly reduced the rebels to submission ( other accounts, however, state quite the contrary). The plague and the cholera still continued, unfortunately, to ravage tbe country. ANOTHER DREADFUL FIRE AND LOSS OF LIFE. A little before 12 o'clock- on Tuesday night, a very alarming and extensive fire broke out on the premises of Mr. Chinnock, upholstery and furniture warehouse, Tottenham- court- road, which threatened great devastation. The fire was first discovered by a passer- by, who gave an alarm, and very speedily the police arrived and forced open the front doors, bat from the flames, which proceeded from the base of the building, and density of smoke, they were unable to enter; and immediately after most of- the inmates appeared at the windows of the upper stories, and were saved by being let down by blankets, but in such mode of escaping several accidents occurred, some serious. The flames gained rapid progress, threatening the houses of Mr. Corbett, librarian, and Mr. Allison, linendraper. Soon after 12, the engines arrived, with a body of fire- brigademen, and also a body of police. The premises of Mr. Lennard, an extensive timber merchant, situate at the back of Mr. Chinnock's, caught fire, and a vast quantity of timber was consumed. At one o'clock the whole of Mr. Chinnock's house was totally destroyed, as well as part of Messrs. Corbett and Allison's, as also great devastation upon the premises of Mr. Lennard. So rapid were the flames at the time the family were making their escape from the windows, that it was found necessary to throw out of the first floor window a little child, who was so much injured as to render it necessary to convey it to the Middlesex hospital. This, how- ever, as anticipated, was not the most serious event, for it appears that four persons perished in the flames. The names of the unfor- tunate sufferers are— William Davis, aged 38, a bookbinder ; Mary Anne Singe, aged 21, niece to Mr. Chinnock; Louisa Tozer, aged 24, and Catherine Rogers, aged 22 years, both servants in the house. Shortly before the discovery of the fire, the three females had been seen busily engaged in ironing in the front kitchen, and it is con- jectured that they had endeavoured to make their escape the back way; but having taken a direction where there was no available outlet, they had probably been suffocated, and had all met with their death together. As soon as possible on Wednesday morning workmen were em- ployed in digging among the ruins; and at eleven o'clock the remains of Mr. Davis were found. The body of Miss Singer was dug out at half- past twelve o'clock, lying with the two maid servants. The legs and arms of two were sadly broken, the bodies in a miserably muti- lated state, and the skull of one completely divided. Mr. Chinnock's four young sisters escaped in a miraculous manner over the parapet into the adjoining houses, and his father and mother, in an equally providential mode were saved by means of sheets and blankets joined together. The ignition was so rapid that no sooner did one flame appear than the whole suit of shops, manufactory, and store- rooms, presented one entire blaze: the stock, consisting of dry wood, and covered with polish and varnish, increased the combustion to a frightful extent. The loss and destruction of property is im- mense, not one vestige being saved, every inmate being without other than night covering. The workmen employed in the manufactory are very numerous, and they have lost every tool of which they were possessed. A sub- sciption has been entered into in the neighbourhood to relieve these poor fellows suddenly thrown out of employ. Thursday an inquest was held on the bodies of the sufferers, and after a len< » thenedinvestigation the Jury returned a verdict of " Accidentally burnt to death." COURT OF COMMON PLEAS.— FRIDAY. 1NDERD0N V. WESTON. When this case was called on, The LORO CHIEF JUSTICE said that, on looking over the record, he found that the action was brought by a brother against his sister for certain words which she had used. He thought it a great pity that the matter should be made the subject of public discussion, and suggested that an arrangement might be made to prevent the cause from proceeding. Mr. Serjeant" SPANKIE ( who, with Mr. Serjeant Merewether, ap- peared for the defendant) said that the case was certainly one of a very painful nature, but he was afraid that no arrangement could be made. The LORD CHIBF JUSTICE.— Try, brother Spankie: perhaps a single word of regret expressed on behalf of the defendant would effect an arrangement, and avoid giving pain to the respectable parties concerned. The Learned Seijeant declined. Mr. Serjeant WILOE ( with whom was Mr. Serjeant Talfourd and Mr. Barstow) said that he appeared for the plain tiff," who was charged by his sister " with being drunk on the night of his mother's death." The plaintiff felt that his character was seriously affected by such an imputation, and nothing short of a full retraction would satisfy his feelings. The LORD CHIEF JUSTICE.— I wish you would try to arrange the matter, and prevent its publicity. _ The Learned Counsel on both sides consulted together for a con- siderable time, in order to effect an arrangement. Mr. Serjeant SPANKIE at length said that they had come to an arrangement. Mr. Serjeant WILDE then addressed the Jury, saying that this was an action arising out of some unhappy family differences, and it was one, therefore, of an extremely painful nature, not only to the parties, who were near relatives, but to the Counsel on both sides. Although considerable damages were sought to be recovered, that question was of no consideration with the plaintiff, who merely sought to have his character cleared from the charge which his sister, in an unguarded moment, had brought against it. He was now happy to say that, under his Lordship's advice, an arrangement had been made, which would prevent the case from going any further. His brother Spankie would explain the nature of that arrangement. Mr. Serjeant SrANKiE said he was quite prepared to state, in ex- planation, on behalf of the lady for whom he appeared, and who was the defendant in the action, that she was ready to disavow having intended to convey the imputation of which the plaintiflj under some misapprehension, complained. Both sides then agreed to withdraw a juror. The LORD CHIEF JUSTICE expressed his satisfaction that the Learned Counsel had come to an amicable understanding, and said, now that the cause was over, he doubted very much whether the words used were actionable, as they could not be the subject of an indictment. Mr. Serjeant WILDE,— I think I could have shown your Lordship that the words were actionable, but 1 am quite satisfied with what has taken place. The Duke of MONTROSE is said to be dangerously ill. His Grace is a Knight of the Garter, and Lord Lieutenant of the counties of Dumbarton and Stirling. R. B. HALE, Esq., has started as the Conservative candidate for West Gloucestershire, in the room of the Marquess of WORCESTER. By the resignation of Aldermen ANSLEY and HUNTER, the dis- tinguished post of Father of the City will devolve upon Alderman SCHOLEY. The Royal Dublin Society have black- balled Dr. MURRAY, the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. The Leeds Intelligencer says that Sir EARDLEY WILMOT, M. P. for North Warwickshire, and an old Whig, has declared against the MELBOURNE Ministry. Sir PETER HALKETT, G. C. H., has been appointed to succeed Sir GEORGE COCKBURN on the West India and Halifax station. The Colonelcy of the 57th ( or West Middlesex) Regiment has fallen to the gift of the Ministers, by the demise of Lieur.- General Sir WILLIAM INGLIS, K. C. B., at Ramsgate. The emoluments of this Colonelcy are double those at home, it beiiig stationed in the East Indies. Sir WILLIAM was also Governor of the garrison of Cork. The announcement that Mr. BARTON, the Charge d'Affaires from the United States to France had actually sailed from Havre for New York, in the packet of the 1st inst., was received at Lloyd's on Thursday, and created a great deal of sensation in the commercial ahd monetary circles. A public dinner was given by the Conservatives of Bradford, on Friday week, to their Representative, JOHN HARDY, Esq. The meet- ing was very numerous and respectable. After the usual toasts were given, Mr. HARDY entered into a full detail of his Parlia- mentary conduct, in the course of which he noticed the different questions which came under the discussion of Parliament last Session, as well as those which are likely to occupy its attention in the next. The speech was received with great applause, and was followed by other speeches from Messrs. ROUND, FAWCETT, and other gentlemen, including Mr. M. THOMPSON, who acted as Chairman. The marriage between C. M. TALBOT, Esq., M. P. for Glamorgan- shire, and the Lady CHARLOTTE BUTLER, daughter to the Countess Dowager of GLENGALL, will take place in the course of this month. In our last, says the Gloucestershire Chronicle, we stated that the Corporation of this city had elected JOHN PHILLPOTTS, Esq., as Recorder, on the resignation of Earl SOMERS. We have since been informed that the Cabinet, under the present conjuncture of time and circumstance, has declined confirming the nomination. The Gazette of Tuesday contains, copied from the Dublin Gazette of Nov. 26, a notice from the Deputy Clerk of the Crown Office, that writs have been issued for the election of a Representative Temporal Peer of Ireland, in the room of the Earl of CHARLEVILLE, deceased. The Speaker of the House of Commons gave notice in the Gazette of Tuesday night that he will issue his warrant to the Clerk of the Crown to make out a new writ for the electing of a Knight to serve for the northern division of Leicestershire, vacant by the decease of Lord MANNERS. Lord CHARLES MANNERS has announced his intention of becoming a candidate forthe vacant representation. No opponent is likely to come forward. Mr. EDWARD RUTHVEN, the Member for Kildare, has addressed to his constituents a long letter, in which he publicly denounces the Editor of the Dublin Evening Post as the enemy of the rights and liberties of the people of Ireland, by seeking to reduce them to astate of ignominious subjection to the Whig Aristocracy. These are stroEg and unequivocal symptoms of Radical defection from Whig banners. Should they extend in other quarters, Viscount MELBOURNE will soon cease to be First Lord of the Treasury.— Herald. A meeting of the inhabitants of St. Saviours's, Southwark, was held on Monday, for the purpose of opposing the introduction of the new Poor Law into that parish, when it was agreed that a deputa- tion should wait upon the Commissioners, to endeavour to dissuade them from interfering with the parish. The Morning Herald, in reference to this meeting, says :— The local authorities were absolutely frightened at the idea of offending the Commissioners— if they spoke disrespectfully of the Commissioners, or of the inhumanity of the Bill, it was, they said, most likely that they would enter the parish immediately, for indeed the Commissioners had said that the noisy vestry meeting" of Lambeth — iE which it will be recollected the " one and- tlireepenny" dieting was severely commented upon— had induced tliem to enter that parish immediately. They where to forego the right which English- men had hitherto possessedof manfully delivering their opinions upon a measure intimately affecting their rights, lest they might irritate the . sensitive Whig Commissioners of Somerset House. If the Commis- sioners did, as it is stated, hastily enter the parish of Lambeth because the " one- and- threepenny" and unconstitutional Act was severely commented upon, what an admirable specimen does it afford of Whig deliberation and liberality ! In fact, this centralising measure has placed three- fourths of the working portion of the parochial authorities of England completely under thepoweroftlie disinterested Whigs. Whig domination, however, is not the only evil that the parochial authorities will probably have to encounter in the administration of this detestable and tyrannical measure, if we may judge from what follows:— ABINGDON.— Attempt at Assassination.— Between the hours of seven and eight on Saturday evening, a most daring attempt was made to murder the governor of the Union Workhouse of this district, or some of his family, by firing through the window of his sitting room, a small apartment, which contained at the time no fewer than five persons. Miss ELLIS, the sister of the governor, was standing at the window immediately previous to the report, and she had just taken a seat in a position in which the bullet passed within a few inches of her head. In the former position it could not have missed her person. The ball then passed through a wainscot partition just over the head ot an aged pauper who was standing within the door of the apartment; and it afterwards entered three quarters of an inch into a brick wall at the end of the passage leading from the room, whence it rebounded and fell on the floor. It appears from the direction of the two former perforations of the ball that the shot was fired from the workhouse garden, and that the distance was about 48 yards from the window. The Mayor, W. D. BELCHER, Esq., and other Magistrates were soon on the spot, and four or five constables perambulated the premises during that and the two following nights. Two hundred pounds reward have been offered to any person who may give such information as shall lead to conviction, and his MA- JESTY'S free pardon has also been offered to any accomplice who may impeach the offender who actually fired the gun. STRADBROKE.— At a meeting of the Board of Guardians, on Mom- day week, a disturbance was created which caused some alarm. The Rev. H. OWEN, an active county Magistrate, was passing at the time, in his carriage, and several stones were hurled at him with considerable violence, but, we are glad to hear, without any serious effect. BRIGHTON.— Considerable consternation was occasioned at the- Union workhouse on Friday week by some of the women who had been- engaged in cleaning the men's upper apartments, taking advantage of a doorway which was open to decend a flight of stairs leading to their lower rooms, and mingling with their partners. The circum- stance soon coining to the knowledge of the governor and the Board of Guardians, who were at the time holding their weekly meeting, the necessary assistance was rendered. The scene was ludicrous enough — men, women, guardians, and governors all being mixed together, " pell mell." Our high constable being called in, some of the most desperate and refractory characters, after a severe struggle, were' placed in the black hole ; and at length, a separation of the men and women being effected, order was again restored.— Brighton Gazette. It is a fact not generally known, that the number of horses em- ployed to work a coach from London to Manchester, is nearly 200; and that on an average these horses annually consume the produce of 700 acres of land; should railways, at some future period, super- sede stage coaches entirely, what is to become of this produce ? The following brief comparative statement shows the very success- ful progress made by the St. Marylebone Bank for Savings, in Wel- beck- street; and it is highly satisfactory to consider the benefits which have been thus so widely spread among the working classes, by this secure and ready opportunity for investing their little savings.- Open Deposit Sums invested with Accounts.

The following appears in the Dorset intelligence of the Salisbury Herald:— A correspondent of the Dorset county paper inquires how the living of Kingston Russell, in this county ( in which there was formerly a parish Church, and the tithes of which have long been in the possesssion of the Russell family, amounting to 1,0001. per annum), came into the hands of the Duke of BEDFORD? Ana in what year, and in what manner, the Living became, alienated? Is it true also, as it has been broadly stated ma late pamphlet ( The- Church's Revenues. IVho has them ?) that his Grace, instead of building a parish Church in Kingston Russell, has, to accommodate his present tenant and family, erected a pew in Long- Bredy Church, for which the Duke pays the annual sum of 101. to the" Church- wardens ? These questions are not impertinent to be asked in such times as the present, when the spoliation of the Church's revenues is contemplated, and by a leading member of the family too, who has for his abettors and supporters the Dissenters, who avow in their organ, the Eclectic Review, that their principles are to be kept up by a keen hatred, and round abuse occasionally of the Church. The Edinburgh Advertiser, speaking of the late JAMES HOGG, after alluding to the princely munificence of the Duke of BUCCLEUCH, who gave the Ettrick Shepherd a farm, not merely for his own life, but for a period of ninety- nine years, adds the following:— " Another fact has been mentioned to us which does equal honour to another illustrious individual whom it has been too much the practice of the times to revile. During the brief Administration of Sir ROBERT PEEL, the Right Hon. Baronet proposed to confer a pension of a 1001. a year upon the Ettrick Shepherd; and wisely judging from the necessity of the case that it might be as well to have the first year's allowance paid in hand, the sum was accordingly transmitted to him. This precaution was the more fortunate, as the present Government, when they succeeded to office, refused to ratify what Sir ROBERT had promised, notwithstanding that some other pensions proposed by him were conferred on Liberals ; for instance, Mr. MONTGOMERY'S and Professor AIRY'S. The mentioning of this fact may look like an unseasonable introduction of politics, but in an article like the present the circumstance could hardly be omitted, however much it may seem to reflect discredit on the conduct of an Administration that boasts of the name of Liberal." Died on the 15th lilt., at Tralee, Commander Francis Edward Col- lingwood, R. N. This gallant officer served as midshipman onboard the Victory, at the battle of Trafalgar, and, being stationed on the poop, shot the man who had just inflicted a mortal wound on the heroic Nelson. The circumstances are thus described by Dr. Southey: —" Within a quarter of an hour after Nelson was wounded, above 50< of the Victory's men fell by the enemy's musketry. They, however, on their part were not idle ; and it was not long before there were only two Frenchmen left alive in the mizen- top of the Redoubtable. One of them was the man who had given the fatal wound; he did not live to boast of what he had done. An old quartermaster had seen him fire, and easily recognised him, because he wore a glazed cocked hat and a white frock. This quartermaster, and two midshipmen, Mr. Collingwood and Mr. Pollard, were the only persons left on the Victory's poop. The two midshipmen kept firing at the top, and he supplied them with cartridges. One of the Frenchmen, attempting to make his escape down the rigging, was shot by Pollard, an d fell on the poop ; but the old quartermaster cried out, " That's lie ! that's he," and pointed at the other, who, coming forward to fire again, received a shot in his mouth from Mr. Collingwood, and fell aead. Both the midshipmen then fired at the same time, and the fellow dropped in the top. When they took possession of the prize, they went into the mizen- top, and found him dead, with one ball through his head, and another through his br « hst."— Commander Collingwood was a son of the late Captain F. Collingwood, lt. N., and nephew of the late Admiral Sir W. Parker, Bart,, and the late Captain Rich- bell, R. N., many years a Magistrate at the Thames Police- offic. The all- absorbing topic of the week among commercial men, says the Munchester Chronicle, has been the failure, under the most extra- ordinary circumstances, of a person extensively known here. His debts are understood to amount to upwards of 20,0001., to meet which the assets are very far from being adequate. Bill transactions of a very suspicious character have also appeared. The individual prin- cipally concerned has quitted the town, and is stated to have embark- ed for America. November 2 2. JOHN BULL. 37: r NAVAL AND MILITARY. WAR OFFICE.

THEIR MAJESTIES continue in good health, at Brighton, entertaining a few select guests almost every ( lay. Their MAJESTIES, with the gracious consideration which uniformly marks their conduct, have postponed several gay parties which were to have taken place, out of respect to the memory of the late Marchioness of SALISBURY, whose dreadful death has cast a general gloom over the society of the higher circles. THE old Peninsular game is in full play— one day tip, another day down,— mystification, hot and hot, for the gentlemen in the City. The Portuguese change of Ministers is favourable to Don CARLOS. Then comes a Spanish change, which is to destroy him. Then he is driven hack at every point— then he is advancing— by some accounts he is almost, if not quite in France— by others, he has scattered the Queenites, and established in great force. We continue our sage advice to our friends, the dabblers— Wait and see. The American Ambassador has left Paris; things look, therefore, ominous. Admiral MACKAU is destined to blow the American navv out of the water, and the American navy are doomed to take the French West Indian islands. In Paris the only thing of importance, beyond the rumour of the Yankee war, is the sale of an old hat of BUONA- PARTE'S, which was bought by a Doctor Somebody for 1,920 francs. We respect the Doctor, because a splendid tyrant is letter than a hypocritical one, and an old hat is better than a new crown all over the world. It only shows, however, what droll people our neighbours are. IT is with sincere pleasure we refer to the meeting held on Thursday at Freemasons' Hall, for the purpose of taking into consideration ttie unmerited persecution of the Protestant Clergy of Ireland, and to afford a temporary relief to that most pious and meritorious body from the distress and priva- tions under which, thanks to the conduct of out enlightened Government, it labours. His Grace the Archbishop of CANTERBURY took the Chair; and in a speech, which we would gladly give at length, but which we fear would be deeply injured by cur- tailment, explained the precise state of the case,— pointed out the absolute and positive distress to which the Irish Clergy were exposed, and corroborated, by official statements, the melancholy details which his Grace submitted. The Archbishop's speech, published separately, for distribution, would perhaps do more good than anything else in the cause. The piety and excellence of his Grace's appeal, the clearness of the information which he afforded the meeting, and the earnest zeal with which his Grace advocated the cause of his suffering brethren, combined to produce an effect most striking and incontrovertible. Nearly TWELVE THOUSAND POUNDS were subscribed up to the hour at which the meeting separated. It is with a pride of loyalty, with a feeling of admiration and devotion to our excellent KING and QUEEN, that we submit the letter of Sir HENRY WHEATLEY, Keeper of the Privy Purse, addressed to his Grace the Archbishop. Every Protestant subject, of whatever denomination he may be, will read that letter with pride, with pleasure, and with gratitude. It should be printed in letters of gold— but the impression it will make will be deeper and brighter than gold could make it— it will be impressed upon the heart of every man who at this moment sees the manly, constitutional stand made by our Protestant MONARCH against the efforts of the creatures of his Ministers, who are thrust upon him by the Popish influ- ence in the House of Commons. The Archbishop said he had received the following letter from Sir HENRY WHEATLEY. " My Lord— I have this morning been honoured with the King's command to send your Grace 500/., as a donation from his Majesty to the fund for the relief - of the Distressed Clergy in Ireland. I beg leave to enclose you a draft for the amount, and have the honour to remain," & c. (" Great cheering.) To the letter was appended the following postscript:—• " Since writing the above f received a letter from the Queen direct- ing me to send your Grace 100/., her Majesty's donation, towards the fund for the relief of the Clergy of Ireland. I also enclose you a draft for the amount." ( Renewed cheering.) Who will believe, after this demonstration of feeling on the part of our KING and QUEEN, that anything but corruption and chicanery, and a dirty desire for place, in the imps who are riding Lord MELBOURNE to the place where beggars pro- verbially take their hacks, support the Popish conspirators against the peace and prosperity of the empire? What his Grace farther stated, as to the manifestation o^ popular feeling upon this subject, we m ust be permitted to add His Grace said— " As he had read this letter he felt it his duty at the same time to state, in candour to their Majesties, that their bounty came altogether unsolicited, and if anything could add value to their well- known libe- rality in all irorks of real charity it was that circumstance. ( Renewed cheering.) He had also that morning received a communication from the Bishop of Oxford, who was als;> Dean of Canterbury, stating that, as he understood he ( the Archbishop of Canterbury) was to preside at this meeting, he wished to inform him that the Chapter of that Cathedral had voted a sum of 200/. towards the fund intended for the immediate relief of the Clergy of the Church of Ireland. ( Cheers.) This was likewise ar. unsolicited donation; as was also an intimation which he had received from the Earl of Ripon, that it was his Lord- ship's intention to contribute 100/. as a second donation. The Noble Earl expressed regret that he could not make the sum larger. ( Cheers.) The next communication which he had received was from the Lord Mayor. It was dated from the Mansion House, and was to the following effect:— " The Lord M ayor presents his best regards to the Archbishop of Canterbury, and regrets that a meeting which is to take place in the city at one o'clock to- day will prevent him from attending at Free- masons' Hall. The Lord Mayor would have much pleasure in sup- porting his Grace, and, had he been able to attend, would have had it in his power to give his testimony as to the many sufferings of the Irish Clergy." In this note were enclosed subscriptions from the Lord Mayor and his daughter, and his Lordship added that if it were thought desirable he should be most happy to receive subscriptions at the Mansion House. ( Cheers.) These were the communications which he ( the Archbishop of Canterbury) had received that morning, and he had no doubt many others of a similar kind would arrive in the course of the day. There was another contribution which, though it had not come through him, he hoped he would be indulged, as a member of the Uni- versity of Oxford, while he alluded to it, and stated the amount. A committee had been formed in that University for raising subscrip- tions, and the stun of 2,300/. had already been obtained. ( Cheers.) The contributions were still in a course of collection, and, as a member of the University of Oxford, to which he was so deeply indebted on many accounts, and for which he should always cherish the liveliest affection, it afforded him great gratification that it had given so sigiial a proof of its zeal on behalf of the distress of their Irish brethren, and in favour of the interests of the pure Protessant religion. ( The most Reverend Prelate resumed his seat amidst loud cheering.) The Bishop of LONDON, in a most eloquent appeal, stated a series of facts literally heart- rending, supported by a letter . wh ch had been received by the Most Reverend Chairman. We have not room for the details, but those again were con- i firmed by the great falling off in the admissions of sons of • Clergymen to Trinity College, Dublin— a proof that the means of their parents are wholly inadequate to procure them the education which it had hitherto been the pride and effort of the Ministers of the Establishment to secure for their children. There never was a meeting from which so much consolation and fcomfort could be derived, under the circumstances, as from that of Thursday. It proves that the People of England are alive to the oppressions by which the Protestants of Ireland are visited, and when the community so acted upon is headed by the KING and his CONSORT, there seems plenty of hope that we may yet be saved from the paupers and Papists, with whom we are at present cursed. MR. O'CONNELL has published the following address to his numerous unenlightened dupes :— " TO THE PEOPLE OF IRELAND. " Oerrynane Abbey, Nov. 27,1835. " ' An ounce of civet— irood apotheeaiy !' " Beloved Fellow Countrymen,— You perceive how I am assailed ! There never yet w as any mode of attack which has not been practised upon me. I receive nil as the wages of my devotion to every principle of civil and religious liberty ; but above all, of the unabated enthu- siasm with which 1 cherish the rights and abhor the wrongs of our loved and abused land— * For ' tis treason to love her, and death to defend !' " No matter: I can bear ten times as much ; and, as the greatest suffering 1 can bear, 1 can cheerfully bear the puling and sickly affectation of those who foster the most atrocious of my slanderers, and yet are ready to faint with gentility, and die of ' aromatic pain,' because in a strife, not of words, but of things, I do call things by their right but ugly names. " Of this more another day. For the presentl write merely to assure you that I will feel it my duty to appeal by letter, and also personally, to the constituents of' what was' Sir Francis Burdett on the subject of the unprovoked and preposterous attack made upon me in ' the Times,' in the name of that Baronet. I will make that appeal in about a fortnight, unless I shall have ascertained in the interval that the unhappy gentleman has been placed by his friends under personal restraint. It is, indeed, manifest that he is likely to do himself— poor man— a mischief, unless he be well looked after. If he, however, con- tinue at large, it will he my melancholy duty to call the attention of the electors of Westminster to his conduct, and to that of his proteges — of those whom he has sagaciously grouped under his fantastic protection. " In the meantime I will look out for ' a commodity of good words.' Everything that falls from my pen shall be redolent of the civet. I will carry on the political warfare with 1 Eau de Rose. 3 He who tells base lies shall in future be merely a ' falsificator;' he who betrays his principles, his party, and his country, shall be a ' foolish and fading gentleman;' and he who, with only one virtue and a thousand faults, abandons that virtue, but corrects none of his faults, shall be— I do not at present know exactly what— but I will discover some perfumed word, so soft as not to shake the shattered nerves of the most unsound, personally as well as morally, of the antiquated roues of St. James's. " For myself, these assaults serve only to rouse me to renewed, to redoubled efforts. There is much to be done to carry into practical effect the principles which the Burdett of a former day professed. More remains to be done to give Ireland a chance of permanent good government. The present Ministry, virulently assailed by powerful enemies, and insiduously, and therefore most basely, betrayed by pre- tended friends, throw one moment of blessed light and salutary heat upon the gloom of our unfortunate country, but it may be like the lightning's glare, transitory, and only making the returning darkness more hideous. Let us, then, detect and despise those who aid the common enemy at such an awful moment. " You know, fellow- countrymen, that I am, and will be f while there is life in this heart,' " Your ever- zealous, devoted, and faithful servant, " DANIEL O'CONNELL." The most curious point of this hullaballoo piece of stupidity is that, which refers to " Sir FRANCIS BURDF. TT'S doing him- self a mischief." It is clear that this brutality was previously organised; for, the other day, we ourselves heard Mr. ROTCH, the at- present- suspended Chairman of the Middlesex Sessions, state loudly at dinner in Liucoln's- Iun Hall, that it was a common report in the city that " Sir FRANCIS BURDETT had shot himself! " Mr. O'CONNELL'S praise of the present Ministry, headed by that " melancholy instance of incompetence," Lord MEL- BOURNE, is droll beyond measure ; but the best of his figures is that, in which he compares the momentary brilliancy of their conduct, " the blessed light," to " a flash of lightning." Rely upon it, O'CONNELL is a blockhead, and the only fault of which his opponents have ever been guilty, is that of fancying him anything of importance. If O'CONNELL were tried and convicted of any of the crimes of which he has been guilty, and were hanged to- morrow, this day week, nobody would recollect him. We have said so often. The tremendous WARDLE, the important PAULL, the gallant DESPARD, the patriotic THISTLEYVOOD, the untouchable HUNT !— what are they ?— who remembers them ? — and yet some are only just gathered fo their relations— fathers, we do not know they ever had. WARDLE, who was to set England in flames, sold asses' milk at Tunbridge Wells after his fall; HUNT fried corn and made blacking— PAULL was a tailor, and cut his throat— THISTLEWOOD was a gentle- man, and was hanged— so was DESPARD; and thereby, talk- ing of hanging, hangs a Tale— more strongly illustrative of the advantageous change in men's opinions as they grow older, than any other, connected with the present subject. Mr. O'CONXELL is ail over- rated man. If the Government would but look at him as he is, and take him at his value, they might overthrow his power in a month, and dispose of him to the best possible advantage. The starving paupers are sick of paying the bloated humbug. What has lie done for them ? Nothing — nothing but make promises ; and this they begin to see and feel. Show the believers in his in- fallibility, that a halter will end him, as it has done a thousand less worthy predecessors, and they will first wake him, and then wonder why they ever cared for him. He is, to use the words of the noble Premier as to pensions— a HUMBUG. THERE is nothing more base in principle, or more childish in practice, than an indiscriminating censure of our political enemies. Few of our readers, we believe, will fancy that we are likely to become the advocates of Lord MELBOURNE'S Ministry, saddled and smothered as it is by the dirt and filth of O'CONNELLISM. The whole course of the Cabinet col- lectively has been, ah initio, the most ruinous and detestable, the most dangerous, and will be, if it continue much longer, the most destructive of any course everpursued by Lords and Gen- tlemen calling themselves the KING'S Ministers. But strong as our feelings are upon that point— upon the great questions, with their smaller ramifications— opposed as we are to Lord MELBOURNE, heart and soul, as head of a tail — or, perhaps, tail of a head— we cannot permit ourselves to load Lord MEL- BOURNE, as an individual member of the Government— for he is hut primus inter pares— with blame, censure, and ridi- dule, for conduct which has been, in the first instance, mis- understood, and in the second, most shamefully misrepre- sented. We allude to the case of Mr. FARADAY— a man of the - most extraordinary abilities and acquirements, to whom, upon the noble principle adopted by Sir ROBERT PEEL, it was pro- posed to confer a pension of 3001. per annum, The state- ments— and there is the mischief of what is called allowable exaggerations in matters of fact— which have appeared in print, detailed with an apparent accuracy which must mislead the most cautious reader, are not true statements. The dia- logue represented to have taken place, and written down in a matter- of- fact tone and character, had no such tone or cha- racter to be written down. Lord MELBOURNE never said to Mr. FARADAY what has been stated; and Mr. FARADAY, a man of science, not of the world, scarcely- appreciating or understanding the tone of Lord MEL- BOURNE'S conversation, fancied— as his reporters say — that his Lordship was excited and agitated during a conversation, which, as far as it must appear evident to everybody else, could have had nothing either exciting or agita- ting in its character. We have reason to know— although we have no more access to Downing- street during the reign of the present Ministers, than we had while their excellent pre- decessors held sway there— that Lord MELBOURNE felt very much annoyed when Mr. FARADAY' retired, evidently in dudgeon. His Lordship subsequently said, " Surely I have not offended Mr. FARADAY' ; if I have, I am extremely sorry, for I respect his talents, and admire his frankness." We believe that Mr. FARADAY himself is now perfectly satis- fied with the conduct of Lord MELBOURNE. It requires the greatest tact to deal with every class of men— a joke which will win a joker, will irritate a dunce— a playfulness which would charm a man of the world, is an incomprehensible rudeness to a profound Everythingiologist. Lord MELBOURNE, gay, agreeable, and popular in all circles, wished to laugh off the seriousness of the interview with the Crichton of the day; but Crichton did not come to laugh— he came about his pension— and when the Premier, which we believe he might have done with a flourish of his paper- cutter, said, " For my part, I think all these pensions are humbugs"— the philo- sopher was killed ; and instead of saying, by way of rejoinder. " So do I, my Lord, but I think a liumhug of three hundred a year is much better than a humbug of two," he, the unso- phisticated sage, was absolutely " stumped,"— we love the Americans and their phrases— and so he retired. We believe all the history about the personal interference of the KING, to be imaginary. We are quite sure that the KING, had it been necessary to command the pension to be settled on Mr. FARADAY, would not have hesitated to do that, which every additional month of his MAJESTY'' S life, proves to be his gracious pleasure to do— right and justice; but we really understand that the SOVEREIGN'S interference was not required; and that Mr. FARADA Y, about whom too much has been said touching this affair, takes his pension exactly upon the same terms as Professor AIRY' and Mr. THOMAS MOORE. In the midst of this squabble about nothing, one extremely active, and, we really believe, meritorious individual, gets lumped and thumped about like Pantaloon in a pantomime, for no earthly reason— we mean Mr. YOUNG. We are told that " TOM YOUNG" went here, and that " TOM YOUNG" went there, to do this, and to do that, and to find out whether Mr. F, 4R,\ DAY would take a little less, and so on; as if" TOM YOUNG" were some officious Hop- o'- my- Thiunb, jumping about and meddling with other people's affairs, with which he himself had nothing to do. The fact is, that Mr. You*< » is Lord MELBOURNE'S private secretary, and the only person through whom Lord MELBOURNE could communicate with Mr. FARADAY7 or his friends upon the business. It is very easy to call a man " TOM YOUNG," because his name hap- pens to be YOUNG, and his Christian name happens to be THOMAS ; but there seems no particular wit in it: and the more active Mr. YOUNG may have been in this or in fifty other affairs, the more Mr. YOUNG is deserving of Lord MELBOURNE'S praise and commendation. When Lord MELBOURNE lends himself to the paupers, whose victim he is, and cringes to the Monster who is ruining him, we shall always be the first to do him as much political damage as we possihlycan ; but we are not blind, and we will not be blinded, and we speak as we have spoken, and always will speak, precisely as we feel— we say that no blame what- ever attaches to Lord MELBOURNE in the affair of Mr. FA- RADAY'S pension. ——— J 1 I THE account of the dreadful catastrophe at Hatfield House which we were enabled to give last Sunday was necessarily brief, and in many parts incorrect. A week has now passed since this most dreadful visitation, and although the details of the destruction caused iu the splendid edifice were much ex- aggerated, the grief, and pain, and sorrow for the loss of the venerable Lady who fell a victim to the flames, remain un- abated and unmitigated. The week just ended was to have been one of gaiety and pleasure. The renewal of the Christmas hospitalities for which Hatfield, has been so long celebrated, was at hand, and a party, the first of a series, was expected on Saturday. It appears that the Dowager Marchioness, whose mental qualities were as much alive as they ever 4iad been, retired to write letters in her dressing- room, previous to preparing for dinner, her Ladyship having desired her maid, previous to her going to tea in the housekeeper's room, to put upon her table, besides the pair of tall candles regularly lighted, a candle in a bed- chamber candlestick, the light of which, being nearer the paper, was more available. In this state the maid- left the room, little imagining that she never should again behold her lady. It is quite clear that the Marchioness's head- dress caught fire from the low light, as her Ladyship was leaning down to the paper— the rest must for ever remain a mystery. The alarm— the shock— the suddenness of the circumstance, would naturally paralyze the exertions of a Lady at so advanced an age, and although it is most probable that, in the effort to make an alarm, the burning material communicated itself to some other objects, and so increased the power of mischief, nothing is known but that one of the housemaids, happening to be in that wing of the building at the time, smelt a violent smell of smoke— she gave the alarm— and in a few moments the Marquess, whose apartments are in the opposite wing, was on the spot. To describe his Lordship's agony at the spectacle exhibited to his sight would be vain; nothing but main force prevented his rushing into the blazing apartments, in the fruitless hope of rescuing his beloved mo- ther. It was all too late— the devouring element had taken firm possession of all that portion of the house, and any chance of preserving it was gone. By the application of means afforded by a large cistern im- mediately over the Chapel, the contents of which were discharged direct upon the body of flame, that apartment was December 13. j o h n b u l l. 399 preserved, and consequently the library, which communi- cates with it. and which, besides the irreparable mischief done by the loss of one of the rarest and finest collection of manu- scripts in the world, would, if it had ignited, inevitably have carried forward the destructive element into the long gallery, and thence into every part of the Palace. This infliction has been spared— the library is safe, and the loss is confined to the west wing—( excepting the chapel)— which contained the summer and winter rooms of the late Marchioness— the state rooms and dressing- rooms, and the rooms again above those, together with the secondary staircase belonging to that wing. If consolation is to be obtained under such a calamity, by the strongest evidence of feeling in all quarters, Lord and Lady SALISBURY must experience some relief from their sorrow. Their MAJESTIES have postponed the parties in- tended for the past week at Brighton, out of respect to the memory of the late Marchioness, as have also the Duke of WELLINGTON, and all the nobility who had made arrange- ments for gaieties of a similar nature. As we foretold in the outset, SOLOMON the Jew is not an Alderman. Sheriff is one thing— anybody may be a Sheriff. PARKINS, PHILLIPS, MILES, BRANSCOMB, and hundreds more are to be found registered in the roll; but an Alder- man, let his faults be what they may, belc^ igs to a certain respectable corporate body, and even if he be an attorney, he must be a Christian. SOLOMON, as of course, if he be a good Jew, or a Jew at all, declined swearing that he is a Christian ; but he begged for a little delay. Why ? As Sir PETER LAURIE very justly said, he must as well know last Thursday, whether he meant to swear to his Christianity, as he would know next Thursday— there could be no neces- sity for delay. Conversion might have taken place during the week, if there be such a thing in the case of Judaism. We cannot meddle with such subtleties, but we do not pro- fess to comprehend how it is to be effected, and yet we hear of sundry renunciations. It was clear that SOLOMON did not intend to become a believer, and therefore, according to the opinion of several law authorities, some officially high, and others professionally much higher; SOLOMON could not be an Alderman— and so, much to the regret of all the liberal portion of the Corpoiation, he is nothing more than Sheriff; and a new precept, or writ, or whatever the thing is called, is to be issued to the " good peoplehsh" of Houndsditch and its vicinity, to return some- thing of a Christian kind of man for their representative. It seems that Alderman WINCHESTER entered the Court just as the Clerk was reading the vote of censure of the Common Council, upon his conduct as Lord Mayor during the past year. It is said that the worthy Alderman observed that lie could not receive a higher compliment— in which saying we beg most cordially to agree. No man who has ever sat on the civic throne ever more honourably or fearlessly supported the rights and privileges of the office, without the least regard to personal feeling, than Mr. Alderman WINCHESTER. We confess we were glad to perceive—( without really mean- ing the least personal disrespect to Mr. SOLOMON, because a conscientious Jew, like a conscientious Hottentot, may be, no doubt, an excellent man)— that the necessity of rigidly adhering to the law, which renders it essential for a Judge in a Christian land to be a Christian, was so firmly and justly maintained in the Court of Aldermen. Would not the vacant ward suit Mr. RAPHAEL ? If he could but get another friend to ensure him for another couple of thousand pounds— if he would stand, he would delight the sinouches of Houndsditch with his name, and the Papists with his religion; the Reformers would be delighted with his purity, and the Royal Society break their hearts for having black- balled an Alderman. We wish he would try his hand— lie, like SOLOMON, lias been a Sheriff! the unfortunate ex- Sheriff, had not another and a greater offence been likewise perpetrated, in which Mr. O'COXNELL and his dupe bore an equal share, the offence of attempting to injure and betray the nation at large by corrupting and degrading the representation of the people in the Hou. se of Commons? In exposing Mr. O'CONNELL, Mr. THE Tadpole Radicals are beginning to dropoff: the pros- pect of affairs does not please them. Mr. HENRY LYTTON BULWER— one of the despisers of place— has accepted an office in some embassy. Like the generous EVANS, the never- flogging philanthropist, he prefers foreign glory to the sup- port of his unwashed constituents ; and the snobs of Mary- bone, will have to find— if they can— a substitute for H. L. B. A Mr. DYKES, blessed with half- a- dozen long sonorous sir- names, something like STRETCHVILLE, TUTCHVILLE, who got returned for Cockermouth in the last Parliament, has announced his intention of retiring, and some other one of the clique— not seeing why the other gentleman means to go out— has proposed himself. As Mr. DYKES cannot shake off the dignity which so well becomes him till the meeting of Parlia- ment, somebody, perhaps, will relieve the gentleman who proposes to relieve him of the trouble of representing his troublesome constituents. MR. ex- Sheriff RAPHAEL has been black- balled at the Royal Society— upon which very natural fact, our excellent contemporary, the Morning Post, has the following article:— Some of our contemporaries appear to have fallen into a strange error as to the motive and meaning of the vote of the Royal Society by which Mr. ex- Sheriff R \ PHAEL was, very properly, as we think, excluded from that body. The Royal Society is certainly not what it once was. It has placed the Duke of SUSSEX in the chair of Sir ISAAC NEWTON, a symptom and confession of decay which is calcu- lated to excite pity rather than any other feeling. Yet we believe it would be incorrect to ascribe this preposterous election of their President to the political feelings of the members of the society. It arose, rather, we apprehend, from the senile and feminine ambition of being, as they expected, in habitual intercourse with Royalty, and the bounteous promises held out, and not, we understand, very dili- gently fulfilled, of the frequent honour and recreation of coffee, conversation, and muffins, to be enjoyed at Kensington Palace. It is too monstrous to be believed, however, notwithstanding the serious miscalculation above mentioned, that the members ot the Royal Society black- balled Mr. RAPHAEL as a punishment for having exposed the condnct and incurred the displeasure of Mr. O'CONNELL. We know, indeed, that many fellows of the society are most anxious to disclaim any such motive. They loudly protest that they did not intend to manifest any sympathy with Mr. O'CONNELL, or any dis- approbation of that part of the conduct of Mr. RAPHAEL by which he has incurred the displeasure of that Gentleman, and we fully believe them. They assert that they were impressed with the opinion ( and in that opinion we beg to say we entirely concur) that Mr. RAPHAEL hud disqualified himself for admission into any society of English gentlemen; not by his exposure of the traffic between Mr. O'CON- NELL and himself, but by engaging in that discreditable traffic. It was, we are assured, not as the accuser and the enemy of the Irish dema- gogue and seat- seller that this most unfortunate of all candidates osthis election at Somerset House ; but as the customer of the seat- seller, as the man who had paid a sum of money for the privilege of entering the House of Commons in a character so base and low as that of a protege and retainer of the demagogue. In judging thus, we repeat, the Fellows of the Royal Society pro- nounced an award in which a great majority of the gentlemen of Great Britain will heartily concur. Why should the Royal Society admit a member fresh from the contamination of snch an alliance as that of O'CONNELL ? IVIiy, if the corrupt vendor of a seat in Parlia- ment is an object of odium or censure, should the purchaser be re- ceived with open arms ? If it were a crime in Mr. O'CONNELL to dupe fc RAPHAEL had also exposed himself. ' He pointed out a great public delinquent, but in doing so he had shown a hand that was not clean. H e had, in a word, touched pitch, and was defiled. We maintain, therefore, that the Royal Society did themselves honour by his rejection. Now, with all due respect and regard for the Morning Post and its opinions, we beg leave so far to differ with it, as to Mr. ex- Sheriff RAPHAEL'S rejection, as to ascribe the fact to a very different, but much more natural cause. We admit that a trafficking in seats between Mr. O'CON- NELL and Mr. RAPHAEL, professed Reformers and purifiers— like little Tadpole JOHN, of the forty acres— is enough to deserve and ensure a whole shower of black balls at any club or society in the world; but we do very distinctly deny, that the fact of selling or purchasing a seat in Parliament, by any persons not pledged to the new purity school, is a disqualifica- tion for the best society upon earth. The Post " shudders at the gross idea" of purchasing seats. Why, how did the best AVhigs and the best Tories get into Parliament, without that sort of traffic? It is nonsense, at this time of day, to hold up the dirty bit of tiffany which has served as a veil for the last century to hide these transactions." If a man wanted a seat, and lie had not the interest, but had the principle, he paid the patron, and took his seat;— and why not? Property is to be represented, as well as population, and if that system had not been pursued, the greatest and best of patriots and statesmen would have slumbered within the " cur- few's sound" of their own native villages. The point is— like EVANS'S flogging the people now, after having told the mudlarks of Westminster that it was a shame to graze a soldier's back; knowing as he did, that an army cannot exist without flogging— tile point is, not that Mr. RAPHAEL bought, or rather tried to buy a seat, or that O'CONNELL tried to sell him one, but that Mr. RAPHAEL was a Reformer— a purity boy— an incorruptible " brother Papist;" and the whole story, like that of the forty acres, lies in these overthrowers of corruption being foremost among the corrupt. As to the Royal Society, the black- balling of Mr. RAPHAEL has no more to do with politics, or O'CONNELL, or Carlow, or Popery, than it had to do with Mr. ALEXANDER'S ad- mission. The plain question is, what possible claim could Mr. RAPHAEL have to be a member of the Royal Society ?— They say he is a literary man— what has he written ?— a great many letters to his grandmother, and several others to his cousins, but nothing else— at least nobody has ever heard of his pro- ductions. But even supposing that he had, the Royal Society has nothing to do with literature— it is not a literary society— its object is the support and encouragement of science and scientific men. Is Air. RAPHAEL a scientific man ? The truth is, that the F. R. S. at the end of a man's name tickles the vanity of small people; but, above and beyond that, the belonging to the Royal Society brings a parvenu into contact with persons of consideration, and, therefore it is desirable ; but, without meaning the slightest disrespect to Mr. O'CONNELL'S Armenian dupe, we do think that the Royal Society did nothing but their duty to themselves, in hinting, in rather strong terms, that he was not perfectly qualified for such an assembly. One thing we are ready to admit— we think with the Post that the Carlow affair may have been the real cause of Mr. RAPHAEL'S exclusion, because it was the means of making liis name known. We believe several gentlemen have recently got into this sanctum, because, although nobody knows any- thing in their favour, nobody knows anything against them— in fact, nobody knows anything about them. THE Dublin Evening Mail contains the following letter from Lord WINCHILSEA, and the remarks which are sub- joined. We do not presume to offer an opinion upon the Institution or its advantages. We have received, from the Secretary of the Grand Lodge in Ire- land, the following communication from the noble and spirited Earl of Winchilsea, - which, we earnestly recommend to the attention of our readers in general, and to our Orange brethren in particular :- ( COPY.) " Eastivell Park, Nov. the lUh, 1835. " Dear Sir— In consequence of the observations contained in the last report of the Grand Orange Lodge, to which your name is affixed as Secretary, respecting the letter which I lately addressed to the members ot the Synod of Aberdeen, I trouble you with these few lines to express my great regret, that any part " of that letter should have left an impression upon the mind of a single Orangeman in Ireland, that I wished to recommend the suppression of Orange societies. 1 have only to add that, valuing as I do those truly Pro- testant and loyal associations, which I have long regarded as the great bulwarks of Protestantism in that part of the United Kingdom, and of which I feel proud in being a member, it was farthest from my wish to make any such recommendation. " The suggestion which I intended to make in that letter was the formation ot one General Protestant Association throughout the empire, which I still hope to see effected, and which I sincerely hope will receive the countenance and support of every Orangeman in Ireland. " I have the honour to remain, dear Sir, with every respect, your most obedient humble servant and brother, " To Henry Maxwell, M. P. ( Signed) WINCHILSEA." With this explanation all ought to be perfectly satisfied. It proves what we all along suspected, that some misapprehension had occurred of his Lordship's meaning— some mistake which we were certain would be cleared up to the complete satisfaction of both parties. The Noble Earl is himself an Orangeman— a bold and strenuous advocate of that society of which it is their mutual honour that he is a member. H is proposition does not contemplate the abandonment of that system whicti has been found so efficient for the self- protection of the Pro- testants and the defence of the Crown. He would merely extend its principles and facilitate its objects by another and co- ordinate society, taking a larger range and embracing a more extended circle both of persons and duties— and in this view his Lordship's project is so far from being opposed to the distinct existence of Orangeism, that it forms an ally of inestimable value for all purposes offensive and de- fensive which legitimately come within the reach of either. The Grand Lodge seconds his Lordship's view of the case, and we trust soon to see it carried into operation, and both societies co- operating for mutual good. London- bridge to Woolwich, is wholly impracticable by boats such as have hitherto been used in its navigation— no man will now venture to row with his friends to Greenwich in a cutter— no man can attempt with a small sailing- boat to go the same distance ; a momentary flaw of w ind, missing stays, or a thousand other incidents which " boats are heirs to'," would bring the sailing- boat inextricably between two or three of the roaring, tearing steamers, all ploughing and splashing up the water, which, while they cut down the helpless sailor, make such a sea, as the phrase is, that the ladies and gentle- men in the funnies would be inevitably swamped. We certainly do not mean to say tliat the great and almost wonderful results of steam navigation are to be checked by the consideration of Cockney sailors, or cutters of Greenwich white- baiters; but it is to he recollected that the whole traffic oustre these steamers is paralysed— the watermen who were in the habit of taking fares, the ferrymen who ply, the sailing- boats which trade as passage- boats— all these are materially and seriously injured, if not altogether thrown out of employ. The fact is, that, to the people of London, the river Thames, below bridge, is now useless as a matter of recrea- tion. It is true they can go in these very steam- boats to long distances, for short prices; and for one shilling, stand all the way to Gravesend— sitting, in the season, we believe to be impossible. But then the independence of Cockayne is over— the boat, and the watermen, and the " wittles," and BILLY, and JACKY, and dear little POLL— the comfort of doing as one iikes— is lost. And, besides, there are pickpockets and naughty people in the packets, and Mrs. SNIP " could not possibly take MARIA in that way"— and so on. Caricature it as you will, the truth is, the river below, as we have just said— and just as by the building of that splendid monument of art, the new London Bridge, it has been ren- dered accessible without difficulty— is stopped to individual, independent pleasure- hunters, and they must therefore con- tinue to voyage upwards. This, however, is not the point to which we wish to speak at this moment. The captains and pilots of one or two of the steamers which have caused death and destruction in the river have been tried at the Old Bailey for manslaughter, and very properly acquitted for want of evidence, that any negligence was exhibited. Upon this evidence we say nothing, because we think it is likely to come before the public in another place; but we do mean to say something upon the observations of a Mr. CARTAR, the Coroner, who, in hold- ing another inquisition upon another steam- boat accident, was pleased to make some remarks upon the conduct of Mr. COMBE, a Magistrate of the Thames Police- office, for com- mitting the Captain and mate or pilot ( or whatever he is called) of the steam- boat upon such a charge as manslaughter. We beg to ask Mr. CARTAR what right he, as Coroner, has to make any reflections upon, or any allusions to, the public conduct of a Magistrate ? The Coroner's duty begins after the death of any of his MAJESTY'S subjects, and is strictly defined. He is not to give his opinion upon the conduct of other Magistrates, with whom he has nothing to do, and who have nothing to do with him. Mr. COMBE, most properly upon the evidence before him, committed the Captain and the pilot of the steamer; tliey have been tried, and, according to the evidence given at the Old Bailey, acquitted; but the Judges there, who have a right to express an opinion, expressed one strongly in favour of the course Mr. COMBE pursued. We have not the pleasure of knowing who Mr. CARTAR is; but we believe there is an attorney of that name who is engaged professionally for more than one or two of these tear- away Steain Companies. We do not profess to know if it be the same gentleman, but certainly, if it be, not only were his reflections upon the Magistrate, who, having no interest in up- holding the mischief of the speculators, did strict justice, most unwarantable, but his holding the offices of advocate for those mischief- makers, and judge of the consequence of the mischiefs they make— where the loss of human life is concerned— seems to us to be most extraordinary. If we do this Mr. CARTAR wrong, we shall be most ready to do him right. If he, being the Coroner who cast the re- flections attributed to him upon Mr. COMBE, for committing the steam- boat man for manslaughter, be also the attorney for any Steam- boat Company, wre say, the sooner he ceases to be Cail for the Company, or Coroner for the County the better. IT is a principle universally to be admitted, that private convenience is to be subservient to public good; but it is a principle to be carried out only to such an extent as may leave the safety of the individual subjects of a country un- touched and imperilled. No persons in England more strenuously opposed a system of restraint upon the rate at which steam vessels travelling or voyaging in the river Thames than we did, seeing that tile certainty of their voyages as to time, combined with their speed, gives them that most astounding advantage over every other conveyance yet brought into use; but experience, and the perpetual loss of life in the river Thames, has taught us to retract very much of what we formerly advanced— a retractation rendered more just by the enormous increase in number of the vessels in question. The fact is, that the river Thames, from WE think that Lord MELBOURNE really begins to see the danger to the nation, and the degradation to himself which are the inevitable concomitants of any further truckling to O'CONNELL. The doors of the Castle are closed against the Agitator; his shandry- dan of a coach is no more to be seen lingering near Lieutenant DRUMMOND'S office, and the G REYS and RUSSELLS openly denounce him. The following correspondence will give our readers great pleasure, as exhibiting a striking alteration in the policy and practice of the Irish Government with regard to the collection of tithes. Lord MULGRAVE positively refused the assistance of any force, either civil or military, to obtain the rights of the suffering Clergy. The tone of the Castle clique is greatly modified, as the subjoined letters will show, which indication we hope may be hailed as the commencement of a constitu- tional resistance to the tyranny of Ireland's worst enemy:— " 15, Merrion- square, Dublin, Nov. 14,1835. " My Lord,— Having been professionally employed by a conside- rable number of the Clergy, and more particularly of the county ot Tipperary and King's County, to institute proceedings in the Court of Exchequer for recovery of arrears of tithe composition, I liave, in several cases, experienced great difficulty, and in some found it im- possible to procure persons to undertake the service of law process on the parties, unless protection should be guaranteed to them whilst employed on that duty. " As all the Clergy, for whom I am professionally concerned, have resolved, in no case, to proceed by distress, thereby avoiding disa- greeable collision with the land occupiers, and have determined to oroceed in one of the superior courts to recover their arrears, 1 beg leave, on their part, to request that your Lordship will inform me whether, in cases where an information on oath shall have been pre- viously lodged with a Magistrate, deposing that the informant is ap- I prehensive of personal danger and violence in making the attempt to execute or serve law process, the aid of police or militarv will be af- forded to protect the persons and preserve the lives of those who may be engaged in performing that duty ?

IN common with some of our contemporaries, we published, last week, two passages from two notes of O'CONNELL to Mr. RAPHAEL, placed parallel to each other, exhibiting, out of the man's own month, or rather from his own pen, the most beautiful evidence to his own character. The circumstance has been taken notice of in a paper called the Spectator, and as we fully agree that the whole force of the blow upon ' O'CONNELL depends upon the accuracy of the statements, we avail ourselves of the following observations, made on Wednesday evening by the Standard, upon the subject:— The coarse injustice of the following attack, in which we have the honour to be associated with the Times, might well excuse our pay- ing any attention to it, as contempt has, probably, restrained our morning fellow- labourer to silence. We, however, have early adopted, and uniformly pursued, a rule never to allow any imputa- tion of dishonesty, or unfair dealing, to pass unanswered; and, much as we may be disposed to regret the advances which the press is making in O'CONNELISM, and willing as we may be to resent in silence, as the Times resents, this coarse attack, for silence under its attacks is the severest punishment to an aspiring journal, we cannot deviate from our rule:— " THE ' TRUTH- LOVING' ASSAILANTS OF O'CONNELL. " To insinuate a lie is at least as infamous as to tell one outright. The object of the parties who got up the RAPHAEL case was to give the impression that O'CONNELL had pocketed the whole or part of that person's 2,0001., though the documents put in their hands not only proved that O'CONNELL had not kept anv of themoney, but that Mr. V IGORS had received it. Tliey therefore were guilty of insinu- ating what they knew to be a foul calumny. The testimony of Mr. VIGORS has refuted this slander; but the creatures are still at their dirty work— witness the following morceau which appeared conspi- cuously in the Times of Tuesday;— " ' O'CONNELL TO RAPHAEL. " ' O'CONNELL TO CARLOW. ' June 18. ' Nov. 10. "' I enclose you the ballot of this "' My opinion, from the mo- morning. Nothing can be better. ment the committee was struck, " ' Ever yours faithfully.' was, that it was hopeless to con- " Here he wanted to get the se- test the matter further.' icond 1,000/. from his poor dupe. " Here he wanted to get se- veral thousand pounds ' rint' from his yet greater dupes. " Now, ye members of Brookes's! deceived and fallen Whigs of England, ' look on this and this,' and say ye who is the ' mighty ; great liar.' " FACT.'' " The Standard, faithful to its partner's ' lead,' copied this from the Times in due course; and sneeringly headed the extract ' THE TRUTH- LOVING DANIEL.' " The note of O'CONNELL, dated Junel8, was inserted in theRAPHAEL correspondence._ Why was it put there?— Plainly for the purpose • to which it has since been converted. " Here ( says the Times cor- respondent) he wanted to. get the second 1,0001. from his poor dupe ;" in other words, O'CONNELL falsely told RAPHAEL that the ballot for the Committee on his election was a favourable one, in order to in- duce the latter to " bleed freely." But, unluckily for the slanderous • crew who are employed to vamp up these things, the news of RA- PHAEL'S election did not reach London till Sunday the 21st of June. The petition against his return was not presented till the 3d of July; ' the recognizances were not completed till the I6th of July ; the ballot only took place on the 28th of July. All this appears on the face of the documents formerly published. O'CONNELL'S note must have alluded to some other ballot; it is morally certain that it could not have had any reference to either of the Carlow Committees— the decision of the_ first having been given some days previous, aud the second not being appointed for more than a month after. " Now, gentlemen, who is the truth- teller? Who sticks to the ' fact?' What, was your motive for foisting in the note of the 18th ot June, knowing, as youmust have known, that it had nothing to do with the Carlow election ? The public will suspect that you falsified some of the letters to answer your own purposes, from this specimen ofthe manner in which your case was got up." If Mr. RAPHAEL have forged a letter, we have nothing to do with i': the presumption is in his case, as in the case of every other man, that he has not forged a letter. But whether he has or has not been guily of that crime, it is nothing to us. He has verified the letter with his name; Mr. O'CONNELL has read it, answered it, but not dared to contradict it; and, therefore, though there is an obvious error of date— obvious now that it has been explained— we are entitled to presume that the letter is genuine in all other respects. The Spectator surmises that the ballot alluded to in this letter could have no refer- ence to the Carlow election. What interest had it then for Mr. RAPHAEL, who was not, on the 18th of June, a Member of Parlia- ment, but, at the very moment, absorbed by anxiety about his own election, then going on? But to what other ballot could reference be made in this note ? On the morning, or at any part of the dav of the 18th June, there was no ballot. On turning to our file we Jind the following notice:— " House qf Commons, June 18. " In consequence of two ballots for Carnarvon borough and Belfast borough election petitions being fixed for this day, the gallery was not open till a quarter past four; though, as in neither case did the par- ties appear, the ballot did not come on." To what, then, can this letter allude ? Mr. O'CONNELL surely could not mean to speak of a ballot, where no ballot took place, or to say there could be no better than the failure of a petition against the Conservative Member, Mr. DUNBAR. It is quite clear, therefore, that the date of the 18th of June must be erroneous. If, however, for the 18th of June, we read the 28th of July, doubtless a bold emendation, but which will appear bolder in letter- press than in man- uscript, the matter becomes quite intelligible, and exactly such as we understood it at our first hasty reading. Air. RAPHAEL, however, who is charged with forgery, or something very like it, is bound to explain. It will be recollected that there are parts of the RAPHAEL and O'CONNELL correspondence alluded to by both the actors, which have not yet seen the light. It may be that some of these have reference to the ballot of the 28th of July, over which there hangs; prima facie, a great mystery. It seems almost inexplicable that in an equally divided House of Commons, a Committee consisting of, in the proportion of three or four to one Con- servatives, should have been chosen, had the antagonist parties assembled in equal force. A full attendance of the " Tail" would have, in fact, rendered such a disproportion all but impossible; and we know the " Tail" never had failed to attend Mr. O'CONNELL at his pleasure. Supposing Mr. O'CONNELL a dishonest man, anxious to put Mr. RAPHAEL'S money into his own pocket, one can easily guess why he would prefer a Conservative to a balanced committee, or even to a committee of Roman Catholics or Radicals. Though no scientific lawyer, he has had practice enough to have known, from the outset, that Messrs. RAPHAEL and VIGORS had not the smallest chance of retaining their seats. Indeed, the point lay in so narrow a compass, that a man who had never opened a law- book in his life would see the utter futility of any attempt to sustain the then sitting Members. Their majority consisted of a number of wretched creatures objected to at the registry, for want of sufficient property qualification, and proved to be paupers. Well— Mr. O'CONNELL knowing that ultimate defeat was certain, would have an obvious pecuniary interest in accelerating the decision. This could be best done by taking care to have an honest Com- mittee. It was not his policy in the Carlow, as in his own case, to carry on the investigation for months and years; as he might have done had he obtained a committee like that sitting on the Dublin Election. NO— in the Carlow case he had received his CON- SID- ER- ATTON, 2,0001., and every day's sitting of the committee would pro- bably be a reduction of that sum from 1001. to 1501. The event showed how anxious he was to close the contest at the first available opportunity. We do not pretend to conceal that the more closely we look into this affair of the ballot of the 28th of July, that darker are the • suspicions that occur to us, whether we will or no. If the affair strike others in the same way in which it strikes us, Mr. O'CONNELL has little reason to be thankful for the aid of the Spectator ; perhaps Mr. RAPHAEL will explain his reasons as freely in public, as, it is under- stood, he explains them to his friends ; perhaps Mr. O'CONNELL will do what he has not yet done— challenge, or permit the publication of the suppressed part of the correspondence. Perhaps, some member ofthe House of Commons is able to recollect, or, perhaps, some docu- ment records, in what proportion the " Tail" attended on the 28th of July. We are not aware that Mr. RAPHAEL has yet thrown any light upon the apparent discrepancy, at least in print. THE following facts— simple and unadorned— are beauti- fully illustrative of the sweet tranquillity of a great liberal republic; the latter of the two strikingly characteristic, as regards personal liberty:— Baltimore, Nov. 6. The first trial resulting from the riots in August last took place yesterday in Baltimore City Court. JOSEPH WALTERS, jun., was in- dicted for an assault and battery on CHARLES F. TENSFIELD, on the night of the 8th of August last. It appeared in evidence that Mr. TENSFIELD, in obedience to a call upon the Citizens by the Mayor to aid the civil authorities in preserving the peace and protecting the property of the Citizens, was acting as a member of a troop of horse voluntarily assembled under the command of Colonel E. L. FINLEY— that his horse fell with him while the troop was passing rapidly along the street, and in the fall Mr. TENSFIELD lost his sword. That before he could rise he was surrounded by a crowd, who beat him severely, and the traverser, WALTERS, took up the sword, aud with the naked point presented in a threatning manner over TENSFIELD, then lying on the street, asked whether he should run it through him. He was prevented, however, by some of the bystanders from wounding Mr. T. with the sword. The jury found the traverser guilty, and the Court sentenced him to pay a fine of 100 dollars, to be imprisoned six months, and to give secnrity in 500 dollars to keep the peace.— Baltmore Gazette. ( From the Louisinana Advertiser.) The following has been handed to us by the Committee of Vigilance of the parish of East Feliciana, for publication :— " FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS REWARD.— The above reward will be given on the delivery to the Committee of Vigilance for the., arish of East Feliciana, La., ofthe notorious abolitionist, ARTHUR TAPPAN, of New York. Papers opposed to abolition throughout the United States are requested to give publicity to the above.'— Jackson, La., Oct. 15, 1835." It may be just necessary to observe, that this " notorious abolitionist" is a gentleman who is foolish enough, in a land of freedom, to get rid of slavery. THE close intimacy which a continuance of peace has pro- duced between England and France— or rather between London and Paris, for Paris is France— is curious enough to look at. The columns of the English newspaper called the Paris Advertiser, are quite domestic. We extract a few articles, and an account of the Parisian fashions, the peculiar points of which, we have ventured to put in italics. PARIS. FASHIONABLE ARRIVALS.— John Badham, M.

TRADE OF FRANCE with her Colonies and with Foreign Powers during 1834, as published bv the director of the Customs :— Amount of importations, 720,194,33d fr.; of poods sold for consumption, 503,933,048 fr.; do. exported, 714,705,038 fr.; do. entered in the bonding warehouses, 409,330,593 fr.; do. taken out of bond, 438,968,771 j do. upon which the transit duty was paid, 123,770,328 fr.; premiums on exportations, 9,272,221 ; amount of bullion ( not in- cluded in the above) imported, 192,408,884 fr.; exported, 97,286,744fr.

Since the establishment of Temperance Societies in America, 1.500,000 individuals have been incorporated in those societies; 12,000 noted drunkards have reformed; 4,000 distilleries have been suppressed; 8,000 dealers in spirits have taken down their sign-, boards, and 1,200 trading vessels have abstained from taking in cargoes of spirits. This combination of desirable events, accounts for the increased tranquillity and subordination in the United States. A mature spinster of the illustrious house which has produced our present Colonial Secretary, having desired her attendant to read the Scriptures to her, the latter stumbled on a passage of Genesis, in which the word giants was rather defaced, and read: " There were Grants on the earth in those days." " Ah!" ex- claimed the lady with rapture, " there is a convincing proof that our family yields to none in antiquity." The following article is interesting :— CURIOSITIES OF HISTORY, ETC. It is very singular that the English historians ( the modern) should have made so little use of French authorities, especially for the his- tories of the early Plantagenets, all of whom, down to Henry III. re- sided almost entirely in France. Very little is given of the tocography of the first of these princes, our good Henry II. and his four sons; and that little is partly false. There is much curious and interesting matter respecting them in the early French writers— much to dis- prove the English accounts of these princes by the authors ofthe cay, and to throw light upon their real character, so disfigured by the monks and ecclesiastics. There is a very curious historical fact relating to our first capture of the island of Jamaica, by Pen and Venables, two of Cromwell's bravest and most enterprising Admirals. They had made a spirited attack on Hispaniola, and failed ; but, to counterbalance this ill for- tune, they assailed Jamaica and took it. Of so little importance did CROMWELL and the nation regard this acquisition, that on their arrival in London, PEN and VENABLES were both sent to the Tower for having expended lives and ammunition upon so very insignificant a conquest. THE POSSIBILITY OF DYING for love, and also that of dying of the will or desire to die, has generally been regarded as an idea— a mere imagination, chiefly proceeding from the writers of romance ; the fact in both cases, has however been established beyond all doubt, by two persons— the one appertaining to history, the other to biography. Of the possibility of dyingfor love, ESTEURVILLE, the firstlover of Madame dela VALLIERE, is a striking example: he was heir to 8001. a year— A large fortune in those days; consequently his father would not give his consent to his son's union with a person so poorly gifted in that respect, as Mile, de la VALLIERE. His real affection, unchanging tenderness, and steady perseverence, at length wrung from his father a reluctant consent, only when his beloved had been received into the court of Madame; but it was then too late; LA VALLIERE had conceived a violent passion for the King, which was shared by the Monarch, and trembling for the consequences of her royal lover's jealousy, she coldly disavowed all knowledge of ESTEURVILLE, when, full of hope and joy, he presented himself before her. The blow was fatal. ESTEURVIL'LE retired without uttering a reproach— returned to his father— took to his bed— and died three weeks after his cruel visit to Paris, declaring, with his last breath, his ungrateful LOUISE to be the sole cause of his death. The other example, of death by the desire to die, is historical, though at a period more remote, and belongs to our country. MAR- GARET of Scotland, first wife of Louis XL ( when Dauphin),— amost extraordinarily gifted person for the time in which she lived,— con- ceived so extreme disgust for life, from the brutal treatment she received from her husband, that she resolved to die, but without external or violent means. A deep and incurable melancholy was the first step towards her object; then a decline of corporeal force, and an utter rejection of all medical aid. When pressed by her friends and servants to do something towards her preservation, h$ r only answer was—" Fie de la vie, ne m'en parlez plus;" and she died— died, because it was her will-— without any disease except such as the operation of her will had created. H. The last instance is doubly curious, because it proves a will before death. But then come the fashions— FASHIONS.— This is the season when the only novelty to be re- corded in the modes Parisiennes is in the taste and fancy of full dress, for when a certain make or colour is once in vogue for morning dress or negliges, our elegantes are contented with them till the return of fine weather ; but not so their toilettes purees— here they are as incon- stant as the " moon that monthly changes in her circled orb." Newest change in evening costumes gives white pou- de- soie redin- gotes or gros de Naples gowns half- montant, mantillas of point or silk lace demi- montant, and made to hang gracefully over the shoulders and fit to the shape ; we have seen some mounted on bouil- lons, through which is run a satin ribbon, and others which meet in a knot in front just above the_ waist; for dresses decollet£ s they close behind, and are gathered in a knot on the shoulder; with or- gandie dresses the latter sort are particularly elegant. Sleeves are worn half long as usual, but young ladies still wear them short with ball dresses, with long gloves trimmed with Brussels point. Pelerines are still in fashion, the most reclierchees are of pink satin trimmed with swansdown, covering the sleeves and falling to the waist behind. The Queen of the Belgians and the young Princesses, her sisters, wore, the other evening at the Opera, white gros de Naples gowns demi- decolletes, trimmmed with white ribbon, and lier Majesty's with blue; short sleeves and long kid gloves trimmed with Valen- cienne ; ermine boas round the neck. Coiffure: Rosette Anna Bo- lena of blue velvet intermingled with pearls, gathered on the top of the bead with a cameo. On6 of the ladies ill waiting was attired in a pink gros de Naples open in front, short sleeves, and pelerine trimmed with swansdown, thrown negligently over the shoulders, so as not to conceal a neat corsage decollete. Bonnets are fashionable for toilettes de spectacle. The newest are decidedly large, low in the shape, close on the side of the face, but worn sufficiently on the back of the head to show large touffes d la Ninon, which are much worn, or in then- stead a profusion of flowers, ribbons, or blonde. The most elegant are of spangled or African velvet, dark- blue, purple, or green and violet gros de Naples, with short scabreuse feathers tipped with green. We remarked one in particular at a late representation at the Italian Opera; it was in spangled pink velvet, the calotte plaited en toque, a band of satin ribbon dentele encircling the head; on one side a neat rosette, and on the other two pink plumes. Furs and feathers appear to have become a necessary appendage to the evening toilet; swans- down and ermine are preferred; the latter can only be worn f^ a boa and over a satin, velvet, gros de. Naples, or muslin dress. Pink, scabreuse, violet d'Iris, and Hortensia feathers are the most fa- shionable. The gentlemen seem to prefer wadded pardessus to great- coats or cloaks a l'Anglaise ; the fashionable colour is whity brown Savoyard; great- coats are made with round collar and cuff's; flaps very long, and a small side- pocket just large enough to contain the lorgnon de rigueur. The colour the most distingue for dress coats is marroon, pain brule, or London smoke; they are worn very open, with large collars, sleeves wide at top, but fitting tight to the elbow ; two buttons only to the wrist. Pantaloons for ordinary wear are of tricot a diagonale or cafe au lait cloth; for full dress, kerseymere demi- collant; straps worn inside the shoe. Dress waistcoats are of Persian or fkney velvet, silk brocard, or ouatine, and are worn shawl fashion as usual. These are certainly favourable specimens of fashionable English periodical literature in Fiance. HATFIELD HOUSE. The brief account of the dreadful calamity at Hatfield, which appeared in our paper of Sunday, having been in al- most every particular erroneous, we submit the following de tails from the Times:— In our paper of Saturday we informed our readers that a report had reached town that a" destructive fire had broken out early on Friday evening, at Hatfield House, the princely mansion of the Marquess of SALISBURY. We regret to state that this report has proved only too true, and that in the fire which took place the life of the Dowager Marchioness of SALISBURY was unfortunately lost. From the information which we collected yesterday on the spot, we assertained that, in pursuance of her usual custom of passing the Christmas with her son, the Dowager Marchioness of SALISBURY had on Thursday last come down to Hatfield House, and taken pos- session of the apartments which she had occupied in the west wing of the mansion ever since the death of her husband, the late Mar- quess. These apartments were on the first and second story of the October 25. JOHN BULL. 348 yet been dag out of the ruins, has received the slightest scratch or contusion. To avoid the possibility of accident from the fall of the damaged walls, orders were issued on Saturday by the Marquess of SALISBURY thatnobody should have entrance into the grounds without a ticket signed by himself. This has produced adouble advantage— it has checked the inquiries of idle curiosity, and has left the firemen at liberty to give their undivided attention to the still smouldering ruins. About three o'clock on Saturday afternoon some of the tim ber again ignited, bu t was soon extinguished by the play of engines. In tbe course of Sunday afternoon the ruins were still smoking, and although the rain fell almost incessantly it was found necessary to deluge them occasionally with water. We may here add that Hat- field House, and the furniture it contained, are insured in the Sun- fire Office to a reasonable value. The appearance of the ruins is at the present moment frightful. They present a mere shell of lofty walls, connected together oy not more than two or three charred and blackened beams. They seem tottering to their fall, and from their cracked and dilapidated condi- tion must be taken down before the west wing can be rebuilt. There appear to be old bricks enough in the ruins to case the outside of any- new erection on the foundation of the old one ; and this is a point of some importance, as it will enable the noble Marquess, in re- build- ing his palace, to preserve that air of antiquity about it, which forms at present one of its chief charms and ornaments. The Hertfordshire Yeomanry continued during Sunday to post sentinels all round Hatfield House, but this, we understand, is more out of respect to the Noble Marquess than from any idea that their services are wanted. Most of the furniture, we have already stated, has been removed from Hatfield House to different places in the neighbourhood. We were informed, that if this lamentable fire, with its still more lamentable catastrophe— the destruction of the Dowager Marchioness of SALISBURY, had not taken place on Friday evening, a grand ban- quet would have been held there on Saturday. Among the guests invited was Lord STRANGFORD, who did not hear of the calamity which had befallen his noble friends at Haifield until he reached the Green Man at Barnet on Sunday afternoon, on his road from town, to share in their festivities. On learning it, be proceeded to pay a visit of condolence to his afflicted friends, but returned the same evening to his residence in London. building, and have formed her Ladyship's temporary summer and winter residence for some years past. We were also informed that, though her Ladyship was labouring under some of those infirmities which are the concomitants even of a green old age, she was still hale and vigorous, considering her advanced period of life, and that 011 her present visit to the scene of her early pleasures she exhibited a flow of spirits which surprised even those who were bestacquainted with her usual cheerfulness. It appears that on the afternoon of. Friday last she retired a short time before dinner to her dressing- room to write a few letters. At five o'clock her maid entered her apartment and found her writing by the light of two candles. Her Ladyship complained of the dimness of her light, and requested her maid to bring to her her own bed- candle, alleging that she always saw better by it than by anything else. The bed- candle was brought according to her orders, and the maid left her Ladyship, who wore a very lofty head- dress, writing by these three tapers. It is supposed that as she was stooping over her paper her head- dress must have caught fire, and that before she was aware of it she was enveloped in flames. But on this point all must be conjecture, as nobody saw her alive after her inaid left her to take her tea in the housekeeper's room. It is further supposed that, paralysed by terror, on seeing herself in flames, she was unable to resort to the'bell or to give that alarm which must have called some of her attendants to her assist- ance. About half- past five o'clock some fear was felt by the female servants of the house, in consequence of the vast volumes of smoke which pervaded it, and of the strong smell of burning which assailed the nostrils in every corner of it. One of the housemaids, who perceived a dense pillar of smoke hovering over the staircase of the left wing, was the first to raise the cry of fire. According to one of the stories which we have heard, her Ladyship's footman, and according to another, her son's confec- tionary- man, was the first who, suspecting that the fire might be in in her'Ladyship's room, made an attempt to enter it. The attempt was unsuccessful. The alarm was then communicated to the Mar- quess and Marchioness of SALISBURY. Both these noble personages exerted themselves to the utmost to rescue their venerable relative from her horrible fate, but in vain. Lord SALISBURY attempted to force his way into his mother's dressing- room through a door which opened into it out of a sitting apartment, but it was locked ; and the implements to force it not being at hand, his Lordship endeavoured to reach another door, which opened into it from the domestic offices belonging to that wing of his mansion. He succeeded in reaching that door, but on opening it, found it so enveloped in flame and smoke as to render it impossible for any person to enter it and live. The floor and ceiling of the room were then blazing together, and with such terrific violence as to render all hopes of rescuing her Ladyship through the windows utterly desperate. Every person with whom we conversed yesterday expressed their admiration of the zealous but ineffectual efforts made by Lord SALISBURY to rescue his mother from the imminent danger by which she was surrounded; and one account stated that his Lordship was only prevented by main force from endangering his own life in a desperate attempt to secure that of his mother. As soon as it was found that all efforts to save the Dowager Marchioness were unavailing the fire- bell was rung, and its dull and sullen clang, and the risingflames, soon announced to the neighbourhood the serious peril by which this magnificent specimen of our domestic architecture in the reign of ELIZABETH and JAMES I. was environed. A crowd soon assembled on the lawn, eager to give every assistance in their power to stop the ravages of the conflagration. Engines shortly afterwards arrived from Barnet, St. Alban's, and Hertford; and before the fire was extinguished the engine of the County- Fire- office had arrived fromLondon. In spiteof the alacrity with which all the spectators endeavoured to make themselves useful, some'con- fusion prevailed among them at first, owing to the want of some competent person to direct their exertions and to turn their labour to the best account. This evil was soon remedied by the practical good sense which is always found in any assemblage of Englishmen. The flames, however, continued to rage fast and furious, and the prospect of checking them appeared very remote, owing to the deficient supply of water, which was " experienced for some time. A pond in the gardens was soon exhausted, and as the water had then to be brought from the more distant lake, which fills the hollow in front of the north side of the mansion, it often happened that, when the fury of the fire was hottest, there was for some minutes no means at hand to allay it. At one time it appeared as if nothing, could save this princely mansion from entire destruction. The part of the west wing which looks down the noble avenue of trees by which Hatfield- liouse is approached from the south was speedily gutted by the fire. The roof fell in with a tremen- dous crash, and by the fall of the partition between the oriel windows on the first and second floors, an uninterrupted opening to the air was given to the flames, which were then crackling fiercely within that part of the building. The appearance of the fire at that moment was peculiarly terrific. In its progress it reached the chapel; but the unremitting exertions of the firemen prevented its ravages from being very destructive in that quarter. The pews are injured, but that, comparatively speakiug, is a trifling loss. The window of stained glass, which has attracted so much admiration, has also escaped with- out much damage. It is divided into twelve compartments ; of these only one has been destroyed. During one period of the conflagration the situation of the people employed in saving the chapel seemed very dangerous. Their object was to saturate the roof and ceiling with water, so as to prevent them from catching fire. In accomplishing it some of the ceiling was knccked down by the violence with which the water impinged upon it, and on its tailing, the chinks between the timbers enabled those who were below to see that the rooms above the chapel and the furniture in them were enveloped in a general blaze. The Marquess of SALISBURY was the first to perceive the danger impending over the honest countrymen who were actively engaged in endeavouring to save his property ; and immediately on perceiving it insisted that they should leave the spot, as he would rather see the whole building reduced to ashes than hear of one of them suffering injury in their struggles to save it. The men for whom the noble Marqness expressed this provident care displayed, in their turn, equal gallantry. They refused to depart, and said that they would stand there as long as they could, in opposition to the flames. To this resolution they adhered with great firmness, espe- cially as they were informed by some builders that the rafters sup- porting the roof were sound and" strong, that the flames in the upper apartments would ascend and not descend, and that, in case of the worst, there was some shelter for them under an open stack of cliim- nies, near which they were working their engines. Their courage and perseverance were crowned with success. The fire was stayed parly by their unremitting efforts, and partly by the emptying into the chapel of a reservoir of water twelve feet long and three feet deep, situate upon the roof of that part of the mansion. When things were at the worst, it was apprehendedi that the chapel must perish, and the object of the parties working the engines then was to prevent the flames from spreading further, after they had exhausted their rage unon the sacred edifice. The chapel is not far distant from tlie library. They are situate on different sides of a gallery, and each has communication with it by means of a door. To check the pro- gress of the devouring element, preparations were made to stop up these doors with solid masonry. At the same time the printed books and manuscript papers belonging to the{ CECIL family, and illustrating its history and that of the nation at large, were removed from the library into tliejgrand drawing- room, from which, as well as from the other banquetting apartments, the valuable furniture had been transferred, first to the lawn in front of the mansion, and afterwards to places of greater security in the town of Hatfield. Everything was also in readiness to take the window- frames out of the drawing- room, in order that the library might be summarily ejected on to the grass, in case the wind, which blew in that direction, carried the flames into the interior of the mansion. Fortunately these precautions be- came unnecessary. About eleven o'clock the conflagration was got under j and by two o'clock on Saturday morning the inhabitants of the neighbourhood, who had signalised themselves by their quiet but energetic endeavours to save this noble pile, had the satisfaction of knowing that the work of destruction had not extended beyond the least valuable part of it, and that the library, the pictures," and the Cecil papers were all uninjured. They had also the satisfaction of learning the next day, that though much valuable propertyhad been exposed upon the lawn during the night, no part of it had been lost, stolen, or damaged— a fact which speaks volumes in praise of .. the honesty and kindly feeling of the peasantry in the vicinity. It is only fair, however, to mention, that towards the latter pa » ' t of the evening, when the ground was occupied by the St. Alban's yeomanry, under the command of Lord GRIMSTON and his brother, a parcel " of ill- looking strangers, supposed to be thieves from London, who had heard of the fire, came upon the premises. They decamped, how- . ever, very speedily upon discovering the careful vigilance with which their motions and Lord SALISBURY'S property were watched by his tenants and neighbours. J _ It is singular that after so extensive a fire no one, with the excep- Arts: C.' D. Yorige, St. Mary hall; M. Williams, Jesus; H. J. tionof the Dowager Marchioness of SALISBURY, whose body has not i Tooze, Brasennose ; T. Hockley, W. C. Fowle, Wadham; L, The Hon. WILLIAM SCOTT, only son of Lord STOWELL, died on Thursday the 26th ult., at Early Court, near Reading, in the 42d year of his age. The only surviving issue of the venerable Lord is his daughter, who was married to Viscount SIDMOUTH in 1823, and was at the time widow of the late Colonel TOWN- SEND, of Honington, county of Warwick.— It is a singular circumstance that Lord STOWELL and Lord ELDON have survived their sons. Lord ENCOMBE, the present heir to the Earldom of ELDON, is his Lordship's grandson. The Duke and Duchess of ST. ALBANS have taken up their resi- dence at St. Leonard's for the winter. The air of Brighton has been found too chilly for her Grace. Sir FRANCIS HEAD has received the commandery of the Gaelphic Order. If he had never done anything but write Bubbles from the Brunnens, he would have deserved that honour. FIESCHI has had Counsel assigned him for his defence. What a mockery. We have seen, not long ago, apiece of revolting absurdity in our own country— this is a fit pendant for it. Mr. EAGLE, of Bury, too well known to the Radicals to need a syllable from us, has been appointed a Charity Commissioner, in the room of Sir SOMEBODY WALSHAM, appointed one of the Assistant Humbugs under the new Poor Laws Amendment Act. The newspapers say that the Right Hon. POULETT THOMSON entertained the Cabinet Ministers on Wednesday. We should like to know how ? Lord BROUGHAM and Lord LANSDOWNE, and several very respect- able elderly ladies, have been elected members of the Verulam An- tiquarian Society. His Lordship ( we mean Lord BROUGHAM) has been up in the quagmire in Gower- street, setting some of the fools to rights, who fancy that Mr. WILKINS'S portico is to have the, power of conferring degrees like those of Oxford and Cambridge. The only thing in which we rejoice, in connexion with this meeting, is, that Colonel JONES is well enough to be out and about again. We had heard that he was seriously ill, and had been confined for a long time. His recovery is a great thing for the nation. The Widow VESTRIS is still unwell, and unable to appear. This throws a damp upon her theatre, and a single damp does not cause au overflow. The Widow NISBETT is quite well, and yet she seems to have more visitors to inquire after her than the invalid. The Adelphi is crowded every night. The Duke of HAMILTON, at about seventy- five, is to receive the blue riband vacant by the death of the Earl of CHATHAM ; and Lord LANSDOWNE ( he requires something to keep him) that, which is va- cant by the death of the Duke of BEAUFORT. We sincerely regret to hear that Lady FANNY PONSONBY, daughter of the Earl of DURHAM, is seriously indisposed. The return of Lord CHARLES MANNERS, in the room of his Lord- ship's late lamented brother, is not, as we understand, likely to be opposed. The Jetvess has drawn more money to Drury Lane than any piece ever produced. So say the newspapers; but we say— No. It is an injustice to Mr. BALFE, who has started forth a composer of a caste and power yet unknown in this country, to say that his Siege of Rochelle has not its share in the attraction. Grant that the Jewess has consummated the triumph, the Siege of Rochelle began it. Woolcombe, Scholar of Pembroke; J. Williams, Pembroke; E. Cane, Scholar ot Trinity.

We are glad to hear that there was a meeting at Bath, on Tuesday last, for the relief of the distressed Irish Clergy. It was held in the Assembly- rooms, and was, as our correspondent informs us, being an eye- witness, most numerously and respectably attended; the vene- rable and highly esteemed Bishop of BATH and WELLS in the chair, who opened the' business of the meeting in the most able and affect- ing manner. This distinguished and amiable Prelate, one of the brightest ornaments of the Bench, has ever been the poor man's friend and the patron of the most humble merit— ever benevolent, active, and ready to do good, being alike strenuous for the cause of charity and religion. After his Lordship had explained the grounds on which their charity and liberality were appealed to, the meeting was ably and feelingly addressed by the venerable the Archdeacon MOYSEY, the Right Hon. Lord BEXLEY, Colonel DAUBENEY, and many other gentlemen. Several resolutions being moved and seconded,, various handsome donations were announced, and the subscription altogether will no doubt be one worthy of its object. It is to be hoped that subscriptions for the same benevolent purpose will become ge- neral, for seldom, if ever, has the British public been called upon to relieve or mitigate such sufferings and hardships as the Irish Clergy are now enduring from their rights and their dues being unjustly withheld from them. At a meeting of the National Society for the education of the poor, & c., holden at the central school, Westminster, on Wednesday, there were present:— The Lord Bishop of London, Right Hon. Sir John Nicholl, Colonel Clitherow, Joshua Watson, Esq., Rev. Dr. W alms- ley, Rev. H. H. Norris, James Trimmer, Esq., and the Rev. J. C. Wigram. On Wednesday last the foundation- stone ofa small Chapel, in con- nection with the Established Church, was laid at Somerstown, a hamlet lying between the town of Wandsworth and Tooting, by Mrs. BORRADAILE, the wife of the worthy Vicar of the former parish, in the presence of the neighbouring Clergy, and amidst a large con- course of people. The Chapel is designed m the early English style, bv Mr. MOSELEY, with a turret for a bell, and is fitted up entirely with seats for the use of the poor. The whole cost of the site and building will be defrayed by the liberality of a gentleman residing at Wandsworth. Great improvements are now in progress in that ancient and very beautiful Church, the Minster at Wimborne. Several new windows have been re- opened in the eastern tower, and other parts ; two large additional galleries are in a state of forwardness ; nearly the whole of the interior is renovated: when finished the Church will have a very noble and handsome appearance. Capt. HANHAM has, with his usual liberality, come forward on this occasion, bearing a considerable portion ot the expense himself. His MAJESTY'S Commissioners for buildingnew Churches, in their report lately published, state, that under the powers vested in them by the Church Building Acts, they have, with the necessary consents, re- united the rectoriarand vicarial tithes of the parish of Orwell, in this county, and formed the same into a Rectory. This, we believe, is not the first instance in which the Master and Fellows of Trinity College have generously yielded up considerable advantages formerly enjoyed by the Fellows of their society, for the purpose of securing resident Clergymen on the livings of which they are the patrons. It is an example that ought to be put forth for imitation before the wealthy impropriators, both lay and Clerical, in other parts of the kingdom, and is worth all the talk about Church reform that has been talked of for years.— Cambridge Chronicle. It is a fact, not less true than astounding, that out. of the eleven thousand livings in England and Wales, seven thousand of them are in the hands of lay - impropriators; and a sum, not less than 150,0001. a- year of Church property, is possessed by Lord John Rus- sell's father! ! The Rev. WILLIAM ARUNDELL, of Cheriton Fitzpaine, Devon, at his tithe audit, a few days since, made a reduction of 10 per cent. On the 25th ult., a New Church at Penzance, was opened for Divine Service by the Rev. THOMAS VYVYAN. The collection in the morning was 1401. A most interesting sermon was preached in the Church of Mel- combe Regis, on Sunday morning, the 22d ult., by the Lord Bishop of BATH and WELLS. This venerable Prelate addressed a large and highly respectable congregation in favour of the suffering Irish Clergy, in terms so impressive as failed not to awaken in their hearts the liveliest emotions of sympathy, which were practically exhibited in the collection of 601. and upwards. His Lordship kindly under- took this duty at a very short notice, and the congregation were apprised of it only on the preceding day. We are happy to find that the subscription towards restoring and enlarging the old Chapel in the West Borough, Maidstone, and for fitting it up for public worship in connection with the Established Church, has received several liberal contributions. The name of our worthy representative Mr. WYNDHAM LEWIS, has the sum of fifty guineas attached to it, and our respected townsman, Mr. BRENCHLEY, has given the noble sum of fifty pounds. Other gentlemen have come forward very handsomely, and doubtless many more will do so. The object, it must be confessed, is most important and desirable. The lessee of the property, the Rev. F. F. HASLEWOOD, has most liberally engaged to contribute one thousand pounds.— Maidst. Jour. CANTERBURY.— The examination for the election of King's Scho- lars, was held on Monday last, before the Chapter and the Head Master, when the following gentlemen were elected to the scholar- ships :— Edmund S. Crooke, Charles W. Ross, John Higham, W. Maundy Gregory, John Bushel], Edward T. Scudamore, David S. Price, Charles J. Fox, Augustus Hope. Six King's Scholars were admitted to the year of grace, and there were three young gen- tlemen pras- elected. The Vice- Dean and Dr. RUSSELL, were pleased to express themselves satisfied with the manner in which their ques- tions were answered, and with the examination generally. EXETER FREE GRAMMAR SCHOOL. — Mr. Louis WooIIcombe, of Pembroke College, Oxford, late of the Exeter Free Grammar School, has been placed by the Public Examiners this term in the Second Class ; and Mr. Edward Geare, of Exeter College, and also formerly of the Exeter Grammar School, has been placed in the Third Class of Litt. Humaniores.— At a Chamber held in October last, Mr. G. P. Graham Cosserat was chosen, bv the Mayor and Chamber, an Exhi- bitioner under the will of Mr. Reynolds.— Mr. G. P. G. Cosserat, Mr. S. Andrews, and Mr. W. Hole, have been appointed Exhibi- tioners of the Exeter Free Grammar School, on the Foundations of Dr. Vilvayn, Sir John Acland, and Dr. Reynolds. The Rev. Dr. ENGLAND, whose death we recorded last week, was a man in whom it is believed the following traits of character were universally acknowledged: that he was never known to do or say an ill- natured thing— to resist a call of charity— to hear his neighbour abused without endeavouring to defend or palliate— or to violate the sacred obligations of truth; and whose piety was as sincere and un- ostentatious as his charity was unbounded. We have great satisfaction in referring our readers to a report of the proceedings at a meeting held on Monday at Bromsgrove, to consider the propriety of erecting and endowing a Chapel of Ease in a part of that extensive parish which is far removed ( we believe, nearly three miles) from the parish Church. The Bishop ot ROCHESTER ( Vicar of the parish), took the chair on the occasion. His Lordship announced that the Dean and Chapter of Worcester ( who are the patrons of the living) had determined to give 1,5001. towards the en- dowment, and 1001. towards the building. The announcement of this munificent contribution excited warm applause, and gave universal satisfaction. It was also announced that the Bishrn of ROCHESTER and the Hon. R. II. CLI VE would each give 1001., and it was notified from the latter that he should fulfil the intention of his lamented relative, the late Earl of PLYMOUTH, who had designed to contribute to this object. The Rev. J. N, HARWARD ( the Curate of the parish), and the Rev G. A. JicoB( IIead Master of the Free Grammar School), have given 501." each. Our advertising columns present a handsome list of subscriptions— Worcester Journal. 309 JOHN BULL. September 526. STOCK EXCHANGE.— SATURDtv.

They had captured and carried away a great number of cattle. From various accounts, it appears that they had spread themselves along the frontier in a most audacious manner. The fate of Lieut. Bailey and his party had at length been ascertained He had been dogged by the Caffres, and attacked by very large bodies of them, by which eight of his men were slain. With the remainder he retreated to a hill, Where he made a determined resistance, but the savages ultimately closed upon him, and the whole party was massacred.

SHIPWRECK OF THE TRANSPORT VESSEL NEVA.— Launceston ( Van Dieman's Land) papers to the 3rd July, and Hobart Town papers to the 4th July, were yesterday, received at the North and South American Coffee- house: they bring a melancholy account of the shipwreck, almost contiguous to Van Dieman's Land, of the transport ship Neva, Captain Peck, which left Cork on the 8th of January last, bound " to Sidney, having on board 150 female prisoners, with 33 of their children, 9 free women with 22 chil- dren, and a crew of persons, under the charge of Surgeon Dr. Stevenson. They had proceeded prosperously on their voyage until the 13tli of May last; and being by Malta ( reckoning about ninety miles from King's Island) at two o'clock in the morning, the man on the look- out discovered land in sight, and about four, a reef of rocks suddenly appeared right a- head. Orders were instantly given to tack about, " but while yet in stays, the vessel struck, unshipped the rudder, and was instantly driven upon her larboard bow with violence on the rocks; she immediately bilged; the boats were speedily lowered, but they had no sooner reached the water than they were upset, and in a few minutes more the vessel parted, and fell asunder in four pieces; when, dreadful to relate, with the ex- ception of twenty- two persons, who clung to the fragments, the whole on board perished. After enduring great hardships, the sur- vivors reached King's Island, but seven of the number were so ex- hausted that they died soon after, leaving only fifteen saved out of the entire complement of 241, namely, six of the convicts and nine of the crew.

This modern and comfortable winter envelope, now so fashionable at Paris, Vienna, and St. Petersburg, on account of its elegance, warmth, and litrhtness, must supersede every description of cloak. That beautiful and much admired fur, the Kolinsky, introduced into this country bv Sneider and Co., can only be seen at their warehouse. Real Russian Sables, Sable- tail Boas, rich Furs of every other description, well, seasoned and beautifully finished, are also on sale at their Fo- reign Fur House.

CANADIAN AND PATENT BRANDIES.— Whatever pre- tensions the grasping monopolist or his servile agents may arrogate to themselves, we undertake to supply the finest CANADIAN BRANDY ever impor- ted into this country twenty per cent, stronger than the confessedly impure spirit which our envious rivals are offering at a price, in itself, calculated to excite the suspicion of every considerate person. For Punch or Toddy onr STRONG CANADIAN BRANDY at 20s. per gallon, or 3s. 9d. the bottle, is peculiarly adapted ; but where excessive strength is not an object, we can offer a really good article at 3 « . the bottle, or 16s. per Imperial gallon. This Canadian Brandy is not introduced as a substitute for Cognac ; neither is it intended to supersede our IMPROVED PATENT BRANDY, the merits of which are too well known to reqnire the fictitious application of testimonials, purchased seven years ago attewnty guineas each, and referring, in fact, to a spirit no longer in existence. On the contrary, those who have experienced the fallacy of such de- ceptive allurements, need only to make trial of our Brandy to satisfy themselves of its decided superiority to the article ludicrously as ostentatiously pronounccd 44 the only known pure spirit in the world!" BRETT'S IMPROVED PATENT BRANDY may be had in sealed bottles, 3s. 6d. each, 40s. per dozen, or 18s. per imperial gallon, - on application to ' HENRY BRETT and Co., No., 139, Holborn Bars._ BURGESS'S NEW SAUCE for general purposes having gained such ereat approbation, and the demand for it continuing to increase, JOHN BURGESS and SON beg most respectfully to offer thus their best acknow- ledgments to the Public for their liberal patronage of the same; its utility and great conveni ence in all climates have recommended it to the most distinguished foreign connexions, who have all spoken highly in its recommendation. It is pre- pared by them only; and for preventing disappointment to families, all possible care has been resorted to, bv each bottle being sealed on the cork with their firm and address, as well as each'label having their signature, without which it cannot be genuine. JOHN BURGESS and SON'S long- established and much- esteemed ESSENCE of ANCHOVIES continues to be prepared by them after the same manner that has given the greatest satisfaction for many years.
