The Bishop of Oxford has put out a form of prayer to be used in schools and families under our pre- senc trials," to wit, the presence of the cattle-plague and the prospect of the cholera. The prayer contains petitions for deliverance From plague and pestilence on man and beast; from straitness in our borders and hunger in our homes; from the wasted ear and from the empty bag; from murrain in our cattle, and from sickness in our folds; from excess in abundance; from grudging in our gifts; from un- thankfulness for mercies, and from hardness under judg- I ments." Some days since the portmanteau of a gentle- man staying at the Star and Garter Hotel, Boulogne, was broken open, and bank-notes to a considerable amount were abstracted.
