On Tuesday last Capt.j. Matthews of Wrex- ham arrived at his native place, fo the great joy of his family and fellow townsmen; after all absence of nearly 'seven' vears. He had, served in-several campaigns (his war, and particularly distinguished hilmelt at the battle of Coruuiia, where h,e had I he honour of" re- ceiving a wound in that g lorious conflict at the-same monienf as the laoiented General Moore. On his arrival tho hells paid him the compliment of a merry peal. Robert Hoberfs, a yootii ten years of age, by accident feil iolo Holywell well he was ohserved by a hoy about the same age, who could render him no assistance; he prociu-ed John ilanson, a young man who leaped into the hasill with his cfoaths on, and rescued hitu from the bottom, otherwise he mlulihave proved a lost member to society. John Hall- son has been rewarded with the aecustomary allowaitceof,the North Wales Humane Socie- tyâ-And on the 4fh lilt. a similar occurrence happened in the parish of Ysceifiog, in the count y of Flint:âA child tfiree years old, by name Edward Phillips, was ptecijiitateel into the river Wheeler; by the velocity oi the current he was-carrried near 40 yards, and was taken our with great risk by Mary Coles-, II lii11.

A èurious Calculation /-r-Altowing tiie cir- cumference of the Earth to be 25,000 miles, as it is well known to be, nearly, the whole surface is equal to 198,943,150 square miles. It is said that abont one-fifth part only of.tliis luirface is inhabitable by humane beings; but we Will suppose* one half of it, 99,471,875 tqnHjre-mifes tobe inhabitable this is equal j to '2773116720000000 square feet. Tlie number of human beings occupying this extensive ter- j ritory, rLt present, is estimated at 1000,9000000. Now-suppose this population to double every fifty. vears, a supposition I think nowise un- reasonable, provided that all wars should cease, and no extraordinary pestilence, or other calamity, happen to carry the people otr; then, at the end of a 1000 years this num- ber would be increased to 524288000000000. Divide the number of square feet, given above, by this hst great number, and the quotient, will he 5A feet, nearly, or a little more than half ayard of ground for each individual to live upon. 1 A hint to rich old B,iiehelors.-A gentleman lately died in London, who had attained the advanced age of 8&. Some years ajro he en- i tered into the holy state of matrimony with a' young lady, with whom he made the follow- ing singular agreement;âHe gave her to-un- derstand that she would have nothing to -â¢ex- pect at. his death, but that as long as he lived, her attowance shouid increase with his years; the experiment succeeded admirably, as it Thus became the interest of the wife to take every care of him. Let old tiieu, similarly" disposed, take the hint. The proprietors have resolved to re-build Drury Lane Theatre on a reduced scale: Jt is intended that it shall not hold more than £ 500. The rain in the course of the fast year has exceeded the average of the three preceding F years by upwards of four inches, and it is ra- ther a remarkable circumstance that in ttit, course of the list thirty years, every lentil year has been unusually wet. it is a whimsical observation, but never- theless true, that the word devil, shorten it as you please, will still retain a bad signification fl: and it but too often happens that give Satan an inch and he will take an t. FINANCE âThe revenue of Customs pro- duced in the last quarter jel97,971 more than thcsame branch in the corresponding quarter last year; aud the revenue of Excise has yielded upon a similar comparison an increase of j £ 265,48S. Every other hraiich of the Re- venue has been equally productive. The sum granted by parliament, upon estimate, as the illrplll of the Consolidated Fund tooth April 1810, has already been realized, with an ex cess of #400,000 applicable to the service of 1310. To which serv ice also, the whole sur- plus of the current quarter, ending 5th of April next, will of coursc.be applicable this cannot be estimated at less than £ 1,500,000 or i £ l,000,000. making together about XI,000,000, by which sum the amwuirt of the Loan necessary fyr 1810 will be diminished* And as the productiveness of the Revenue will probably justify avolcof at least £ 1,000,000 from the estimated stiriiiiii of fhv Consolidated Fund, more than it was thought right to take in 1809, the whole effect of this flourishing state of our Finances will be, to diminish bv three⢠millions the amount of liie loan, anil consequently by iCI60,000 or £ 170,000 the amoui t of the annual charge (o be provided for the ensuing Session. We have the pleasure to add, that the pro- duce ot the Wair Taxes is equally 8}\lil;faClorj. At the Quarter he!d in Huthiri, oa Tuesdiy last, the wile of Samuel Joues, of Broughton, in the parish of Wrexham, collier, was fined five pounds, and ordered by the Court to be imprisoned three months 111 the county goat, ior an assault on the Parish Of- ficer, and resisting the execution of a warrant of distress, for the uon-jiay meut of the poor rates.
