WRECK OF HER MAJESTY'S STEAM PACKET ONYX.— We have received intelligence from Ostend of the run- ning ashore, on Wednesday week last, at that place, of her Majesty's Dover mail steam-paeket Onyx, in endea- vouring to make the harbour during the heavy prevailing gales. The passengers and mails were safely landed, but small hopes were entertained for the recovery of the ves- sel. The Onyx was commanded by Lieut, Raymond. She is an iron vessel, built about four years since, has marhinery of 128-horse-power, and cost about £ 12,500. The watchful and experienced commander superintending the packet service at Dover, immediately on learning the accident despatched her Majesty's steam-packet Princess Alice to Ostend, with anchors, cables, &c., &c., to render assistance. TAKING TIME BY THE FORELOCK.—At the last War- wick County Court, a draper, named Tidmarsh, brought an action against Mrs. Knowles, a buxum dame, arrayed in full mourning weeds, for the sum of £5 17s. for funeral ar- ticles of female attire, supplied her. 11 appeared that some months since, on a Saturday, Mrs. Knowles ordered the goods in question:—on the following day her husband died, and on the succeeding Monday the principal part of the dresses and crape was delivered. The defence was, that Mrs. Knowles had a husband at the time; in other words she intended to plead her coverture. She assured the court that her husband, some weeks before, had desired her, as he could not expect to recover from his illness, to get her mourning, that he might see her before he died. It was from his "dying command" that she had gone to buy widow's weeds, although Knowles was yet in the land of the living. She added that her husband said that the bill for the black would be paid by the exe- cutor. This had not been done, and after waiting some time the case was brought here. Mr. Wright contended if course that no plea of coverture existed, and his Honour concurring, gave judgment against the perhaps too ready compliant with this curious, and, we should opine, singular i4 dying command for getting the mourning in time. THE "FLY SHEKTS."—The Wesleyan Times has the fol- lowing:—"The 4Fly-Sheet' writer is a Wesleyan minister pet unexpelled. A traitor, in the estimation of the domi- neering clique, lives in the camp; attends the court; is a nember of the very body that has transformed itself into in inquisition." In ridicule of Queen Elizabeth's extreme vanity, it was iaid that she allowed her courtiers to tell her that tht ustre of her beauty dazzled them like the sun, and tha icy could not behold it with a fixed eye.
