THE LATE DUKE OF funeral of this liberal-hearted nobleman takes in London to-day. The loss occasioned by bls death is incalculable, being during all his life-tifl»e most lavish in his contributions to the philanthropIC institutions of the day, especially, those connected with sea-faring men; among which not the least WitS the Royal National Life-boatjlnstitution. HisGra-ce, we believe, was the means of founding this laudable Institution and he continued its president till the day of his death. The flags which are seen floating half-mast to-day show that he was not devoid of gard in our own town among those who knew his worth, and they are many. We may as well state also, that, we are in a degree specially indebted to him, for one of his latest acts was to contribute 501. towards the building of the new Welsh Church nO1\' in progress in our town. May his ashes rest in peace.. MERCHANT SEAMEN'S ORPHAN ASYLUM.—Twefl" ty children, fourteen boys and six girls, will be t selected for admission into this institution at the el- ection which takes place on the 27th February- The list of candidates consists of 42 applicants various parts of the kingdom and one of the caseS is somewhat remarkable from the fact of the child's father (a captain at the time of his death) having been brought up in the institution, and the mother being at present resident on the actral site of the late asylum at Bow, in which her husband was edu- cated. There is one child on the list from Aber- ystwith. DON'T FORGET YOUR GIRLS !—A great traveller and writer observes :—When I ■. lived among the Choctaw Indians, I held a consultation with one of their chiefs, respecting the successive stages of their progress in the arts of civilized life and, among other things, he informed me that at their start they made a great mistake—they only sent boys to school. These boys came home intelligent men; but they married uneducated and uncivilized wives and the uniform result was, the children were all like their mothers! The father soon lost air his interest, both in wife and children. 'And now,' said he, 'if we would educate but one class of our children, we should choose the girls; for when they become mothers, they educate their sons.' This is the point, and it is true. No nation can become fully enlightened, when mothers, are not qualified to dis- charge the duties of the home-work of education. Parents give your daughters, as well as your sons, the best education in your power.—British Work- man. ONLY A PENNY.—The true secret of frugality is to lay up small savings- Most persons never begin to save because they fancy they have not a sum worth saving- Begin with a penny. Now, this very day,—and every day contrive t6 save a penny. At the end of the year you will have ll. 10s. 5 d- This sum would buy some good tools, or a good piece of household furniture, or useful article of dress, or a number of interesting books, and it would be a plea- sure to you every time you looked at what you had bought out of your penny savings- If you choose not to spend it, but to put it into the Saving's Bank, in five years you would have between £8 and JE9, which would be a very valuable sum—that might help you in many ways.—British Workman.
