[The following clever lines will convev to the uninitiated some idea of the curious state of our incongruous orthography. They strikingly show what must be the effect upon the minds of foreigners (upon whom, it has been well observed, we have no mercy) of those monstrous anomalies of which we remain in blissful ignorance, upon the principle that" use is second na- ture," and that" man is a bundle of Ilabits.Scelle: the play-ground of a school, where orthography is taught; or, ac- cording to Lindley Murray, "the jmt ;) method of spelling words." 'Twas a fine winter's day their breakfast was done, And the boys were disposed to enjoy some good fone Sam Sprightly observed, "Tis but just half-past eigbt, And there's more time for play than when breakfast is leight: And so I propose, that as cold is the morning, "We'll keep ourselves wann at the game of stag-worping. I'm stag!"—With his hand in his waistcoat he's off, And his playmates are dodging him round the pump troff. Sam's active; but still their alertness is such, It was not very soon that e'en one he could tueh. The captive's assailed by jokes, buffets, and laughter, By a host of blithe boys quickly following auqhter But join'd hand in hand, their forces are double. Nor for jokes, noT for buffetings care they a bouble. All's activity now, for high is the sport, Reinforcpments arrive from the shed and shed cort. More are caught, and their places they straightway assign At the middle or end of the lengthening lign; To break in some push with both shoulder and thigh, But so finn is the hold that vainly they trigh. Oh 'tis broken at last! now scamper the whole, To escape their pursuers and get to the gole; All are caught now, but one, of the juvenile hosts, And he, a proud hero, vaingloriously bOlts; But hark the clock strikes and then, by the rules, They must quickly collect for their several schules W e'llleave them awhile at their books and their sums, And join them again when the afternoon cums. » Now dinner is over; Sam Sprightly, says he, •' Let us form a good party for cricket at thre."

MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES.
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. MRS. CAUDLE RETURNS TO HER NATIVE LAND. —" UNMANLY CRUELTY" OF CAUDLE, WHO HAS REFUSED TO SMUGGLE A FEW THINGS" FOR HER. There, it isn't often that I ask J'ou to do anything for me, Mr. Caudle, goodness knows! and when I do, I'm always rrfused—of course. Oh yes anybody but your own lawful wile. Every other husband aboard the boat eouill behave like a husbnnd—but I was left to s11ift for myself. To be sure that's nothing now I always am. Every other man, worthy to be called a man, could smuggle a few things for hi., wife-but I might as well be alone in the world. Xot one poor half-dozen of silk stockings could you put in your hat for me; and everybody else was rolled in lace, and don't know what, Eh ? What, Mr. Caudle ? 1Yhat dJ I want with silk stocking8? come to some- thing I1CJW There was a time, I believe, when I had a foot- yes, and an ankle, too but when once a woman's married, she has nothing of the sort; of course. Xo: I'm not a cherub, 1\Ir. Caudle don't say that. I know very well what I am. »' I ùaresav now, you'd have bepn delighted to smuggle for Mí!s Prettyman Silk stockings become her You wish JI its Prettynan was in the moon ? Not you, Mr. Caudle that's only Y0ur art—your hypocrisy. A nice person too she'd be for the moon: it would be none the brighter for her being in it, I know. And when you saw the custom-house officers look at me, as though they were piercing me through, what was your conduct ? Shameful. You twittered about, and fidgetted, and flushed up as if [ really was a smug;ler. So I was? What had that to do with it It wasn't the part of a husband, I think. to fidget in that way, and show it You couldn't help it ? Humph And you call yourself a person of strong mind, I believe ? One of the lords of the creation Ha ha! Couldn't help it! But I mav do alJ I can to save the money, and this is always my reward. Yes, Mr. Caudle, I shall save a great deal. How much ? I sha'n't tell you I know your meanness— you'd want to stop it out of the house-allowance. No: it's nothing to you where I got the money from to buy so many things. The money was my own. Well, and if it was yours first. that's nothing to do with it. No I hav'n't saved it out of the pud- dings. But it's always the woman who saves who's despised. It's only your fine-lady wives who're properly thought of. If I was tu ruin you, Caudle, then you'd think something of me. "I sha'n't go to sleep. It's very well for you who're no sooner in bed than you're fast as a church but I can't sleep in that wav. It's my mind keeps me awake. And, after all, I do feel so happy to-night, it's very hard I can't enjoy my thoughts. No; I can't think in silence! There's much enjoyment in that, to be sure I've no doubt now YOU could listen to Miss Pretty- man oh, I don't eare, I will speak. It was a little more than odd, [ think, that she should be on the jetty when the boat came ill. Ha she'd 1JeE'n looking for you all the morning with a telescope, I've no bold enough for anything. And then how she sneered and giggled when she saw me-and said how fat I'd got;' like her impudence, I think. What! Well, she might ? But I know what she wanted; yes —she'd have liked to have had me searched. She laughed on purpose. I only wish I'd taken two of the dear girls with me. What things I could have stitched aùout 'em No-I'm not asbamed of myself to make my innocent children smugglers tjie more innocent they looked, the better; but there you are with what JOu call your principles again; as if it wasn't given to every body by nature to smuggle. I'm sure of born with us. And nicely 1'c cheated 'em this day. Lace, and velvet, and silk stockings, and other things, to say nothing of the tumblers and decanters. No; I didn't look as if I wanted a direction, fur fear somebody should break me. That's another of what] yon call your jokes; but you shouKHteep 'em for those who I ke 'em. I don't, Whut have J made, after all? I've told you-yon shall never know. Yes, I know you'd been fined a hundred pounds if they'd 5parched me; but I never meant that they should. I daresay you wouldn't smuggle —oh no you don't think it worth your while. You're quite a conjurer, you are, Caudle. Ha! ha.! ha! What arn J laughing at? Oh, you little know-such a clever creature Ha! ha Well, now, I'll tell you, I knew what an ucaoco;iiujodat/ij £ creature you wpre, so I made you smuggle whether or not. How ■ Why, when you were out at the Café, I got your great rough coat, and if I didn't stitch ten yards of best black velvet under the lining I'm a sinful woman And to see how innocent you looked when the officers walked round & round you! It was a happy moment, Caudle, to see you. What do you call it ? A shameful trick-unwJrthy of a trife? I couldn't care much for you ? As if I didn't prove that, by trusting you with ten yards of velvet. But I don't care what you say I've saved everything-all but that beautiful :English novel, that I'e forgut the name of. And if they didn't take it out of my hand, and cut it to bits like so much dog's meat. Served me right ? And when I so sehlom bu). a book No: I don't see how it served me right. If you can buy the same book in France for four shillings that people here have the impudence to ask more than a guinea for-well if the). do steal it, that's their affair, not ours. As if there was anything in a book to steal. "And now, Caudle, when are you going home? What? Our time isn't up ? That's nothing to do with it. If we even lose a week's lodging-and we mayn t do that-we shall, save it again in living. But you are such a man; your home's the last place w ilh you. I'm sure I don t get a wlI1k of a nlght, thinking what may happen. Three tires last week; and any one might as well have been at our house as not. No-they mightn't ? Well, you know what I mean-but you are such a man! I m sure, too, we've had quite enough of this place but there's no keeping you out of the libraries, Caudle. ï ou re getting quite a gambler and 1 don't think it's a nice example to set to your children, raffling, as you do, for French clocks and I don't know what. But that's not the'worst: you never win anything. Oh, I forgot; yes, a needle-case, that, under my nose, you gave to Miss Piettyman. A nice thing for a married man to make presents and to such a creature a: that, too. A needle-case. 1 wonder whenever she has a needle in her hanel I know I shall feel ill with anxiety if I stop here. Nobodv left in the house but that Mrs. Closepeg and she is such a stupid woman. It was only last night that 1 dreamt 1 saw our cat quite a skeleton, and the canary still" on its back at the bottom of the cage. You know, Caudle, I'm never happy wheu I'm away from home, and yet you will stay here. No, home's my comfort; I never want to stir over the threshold, and JOU know it. If thieves were to break in, what could that Mrs. Closepgg do against 'em ? And so Caudle, you'll go home on Saturday? Our dear-dear home ? On Saturday, Caudle? "What I answered," says Caudle, I forget; but I know that, on the Saturday, we were once again shipped QUo board the Red Jt".r,Pu7Ich,

Uebteto of BDOkØ. THE MYSTERIES OF PARIS. BYM. Eugene Sue. London: Chapman and Hall. WE have received Parts 13 and 14 of this work, which is continued with unabated vigour and interest, the only point of detraction, we think, being the unnecessary length of some of the dialogues, which are, to some ex- tent, trifling and unmeaning. Fresh characters are con- stantly rising as the work proceeds, so that it will require no ordinary exertion of the author's ingenuity to dispose of them at the close of the story. The illustrations con- tinue excellent, and the getting-up" is of a superior character. As a whole, we think this is one of the most interesting works of the day, and will be read with deep interest. THI WANDERING JEW. By M. Eugene Sue. London Chapman and Hall. Parts 15, 16, and 17 have been received. We have merely had leisure to glance at these numbers, but the impression which remains on our mind from the perusal of the earlier numbers of the work inclines us to entertain a most favourable opinion of its merits. It has met with a very hearty reception from the public—an indication that its pages contain matter worthy of attention. THE WHITEBOY, a Story of Ireland in 1822. By Mrs. Hall. London Chapman and Hall. This is a didactic novel on the social and political evils of Ireland, which has already been noticed in our co- lumns, but which, notwithstanding the various expositions that have issued from the public press upon the origin of Irish ills, seems, in our opinion, to cast a new light upon the cause of the almost national" feelings of irritation which apparently influence the great body of the Irish people, and the Young Ireland" section especially. The principal characters in the tale are first-Edward Spencer, a young Englishman of property, who goes over to Ireland to reside on his estates in that country, deter- mining to be of NO PARTY, but finding, on his arrival there, that his most trivial actions are so construed as to give ALL parties grounds for claiming him as an adherent— he seemed, by some means unknown to himself, to have become identified with a party:" then comes Abel Richards, the middleman or agent, who is represented as a selfish hypocrite, treacherous—at once coarse to his inferiors and fawning to those in power. These two meet soon after their arrival in the sister country, and the following dialogue may serve to show the character of both:— I certainly am a Protestant," answered Mr. Spencer. 1 might have known it, Sir, by finding you at this hotel; it is a sad state of things for a country when we are obliged to stand so apart from the children of perdition, as not even to frequent the same houses, which ought to be of public, not exclusive, resort." And to whom, may I ask," said the young Englishman, looking his visiter steadily in the face, to whom do you apply the term children of perdition V To the darkened offspring of Satan, Sin, and Death—the people of the Popish faith," he replied; and bitter and galling as were his words, they were delivered in the soft, honeyed brogue which had previonsly so disgusted Edward Spencer; opposite to whom he had hitherto sat, but after replying to this question, he arose, and walked pompously across the room, until he stood close to him. I have long," he said, wrestled with the spirit because of this people, and sought almost in vain in the dark south for some one to assist in the glorious reformation of the peasantry. What does it matter if they continue clothed in the rags of earth, so that we can but rescue their precious souls I hope good may be effected in two ways," replied Mr. Spencer. My plan would be first to provide them food and raiment by means of occupation, without inquiry as to their creed; and though I would of course much rather they pro- fessed the faith I know to be the purest, I would let them preserve their own rather than persecute them to its denial with their lips. Mr. Graves, an Irish beneficed clergyman, who falls in with Edward Spencer in their passage from England, bears also a prominent character in the tale. He is made to represent that, notwithstanding the length of time which has elapsed since the conquest, and even since the last confiscations, the native Irish still cherish the remem- brance of their ancient rank and property preserve their genealogies with the precision of a herald; and, if they do not all look forward with a wild hope to the resump- tion of their own" lands, are still animated to hatred against the Saxon possessor, and prompt to bring the memory of the past to add to the bitterness of the present, which (as in other countries) with more demand for labour and less physical destitution, would have faded away under the business of an active life, or been looked upon merely as an historical fact. An extract will exem- plify this :— The Irish peasant," continued Mr. Graves, lives amid the faded glories of his country, knows and feels it: his cabin is mud-walled and miserable, yet the ruined castle he passes by to go to his ill-remunerated labour bears his name. This yields him a gloomy satisfaction! He looks on the crumbling walls, and knows that the glories of his ancestors are not mere fables. His wife, while digging the potato-garden, or whirring at her wheel, sings the cherished legends of his race; tells their triumphs and their oppressions to the children who tremble in rags at her knee; and dim prophecies of the future- when Ireland shall be herself Ireland shall belong to the Irish—when Tara's kings shall dispense justice to Ireland' —are repeated and listened to with avidity at every wake and fair; the story-teller vies with the piper in attracting listeners and, grateful as they feel for individual kindnesses of the Saxon race, they look upon them in a body as not only intruders but oppressors." Surely, even-handed justice could prevent this," said Edward. Mr. Graves smiled. It would not be easy to persuade a man that you meant him justly, while you retained what he believed to be his." But consider the impossibility of upsetting a country after centuries of undisturbed inheritance have passed," observed Edward. "Of course, answered the Dean, "Iknow that: but fancy the impolicy of leaving a highly sensitive and imaginative people to brood, with misery and want for their companions, over the wildly but truly chronicled tales of former greatness, wrenched from them by force or fraud. If they had been drawn into active life—if they found their labour sufficiently productive to afford them subsistence-if efforts had been made to elevate and not depress them in the scale of human-kind—such memo- ries would have fitded into fables, or have been in a great degree lost; as they must be where existing realities demand perpetual thought, instead of romancing over an old man's tale. We all seek something to cling to in this world—something to raise us above the tides and currents of Ufe the poor English- man clings to his comforts the poor Irishman might have done the same, if he had had them to cling to; but, ragged, tattered, the shivering wreck of the past—his foot still on his native heath—the music of his native land ringing in his ears —the history of his country graven on hi3 heart—those in whom he trusts whispering disquieting advice, the advice his restless, ardent, and faithful nature best loves to hear—the only marvel is, that instead of occasional outbursts, the festering indications of unhealthy constitutions, the disease has not been more uni- versal and more deadly. Think, my dear Sir, of these things think, as 1 have so often found it necessary to do, lest my heart should harden think, not so much of what, under the excite- ment and influence of dangerous men, the people do, as of what for a long series of years they have forborne to do." The leading Whiteboy, Lawrence Macarthy, is a de- scendant of an ancient chieftain, having littleornothing but the honours of his family to subsist upon. Connected with him in his schemes is an Irishman of greater standing and respectability—an <>fficerm the army,which he quits, to endeavour to free his native land. He is stimulated to this course partly by credulous enthusiasm, partly by his love for the half-sister of Lawrence, who has been brought up by the family of her mother, and who is of couse the heroine of the book. In the conception of these charac- ters, and their connexion with the story, great skill is shown especially in Lawrence McCarthy. His position just raises him above the mere peasant, whilst it gives him all their feelings, prejudices, and crimes. His inexperience and ignorance of history make him really believe in the possibility of his schemes; whilst they prevent him from seeing that his own plans of outrage, and of revenge against Abel Richards, the middleman, contribute nothing towards effecting his purpose. Many of the other characters are equally well drawn though not so striking or original. We think the work well entitled to a perusal, and beg to recommend it to the attention of our readers.

LICENSE FOR LADIES.—A distinguished writer says- "There is but one passage in the bible where the girls are commanded to kiss the men; and that is in the golden rule, whatever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them. WISDOM.—The chief properties of wisdom are, to be mindful of things past, careful of things present, and provident of things to come. „ Portman hay-market was almost destroyed by fire on Thursday week. A number of houses were also damaged. The late Duke of Kent was the son of a King, the brother of three Kings, and father of a Queen regnant but never a King himself. The crops in France and Germany are reported as any- thing but promising; and the stock of corn in the Baltic ports is understood to be unusually small. The Journal des Dibats mentions, that in two days the Customhouse-officers bad seized in Paris English smuggled manufactures to an enormous amount. In one tailor's shop alone, a seizure of mackintoshes" to the amount of 20,000 francs was made. A verdict of "Manslaughter" has been returned by a Coroner's Jury against Mr. Hawkins, a surgeon of Hatton Garden, for unskilful treatment of a poor woman whom he delivered of twins, dreadfully injuring her in the second delivery. He was committed to JSewgate. Major-General Pasley, the Government Inspector- Geperal of Railways, made an investigation into the late accident at Chalk Farm on Saturday, The papers, how- ever, report nothing new on the matter. A dispute about a piece of land at Walworth has ended in manslaughter. Mr. Ratherbee, a musician, let a bit of ground to Mr. Joseph Harvey, of which the term expired last March; but Mr. Harvey refused to give it up. Ratherbee went into the garden on the 8th April, and a dispute eusued; Harvey knocked him down by a blow on the cheat, which caused him to vomit blood. He became very ill, wasr^moied to <iuy's Hospital, and died on the :il)th July. A Coroner's Jury returned a verdict of Manslaughter" against Harvey. Aquedu' ts seem likely to become familiar in England. A company has been formed at Biackburu and the neigh- bouring towns, called the "Lancashire Water Works Com- pany," to convey water for the numerous towns and places mentioned, by means of a conduit orctmnne) of flag-stone, or other suitable material along the inclines of the Black- burn, Darwin, and Bolton Ratify, and its intended branches. it is shown that an abundant supply ot the parest water can be secured for the company. EFVEICXS OF STEAM BY LAND AND WATER. —The tflwn of Sittingbourne, in Kent, a few years past, had two respectable inns, which together used sixty pairs of post horses; the largest, the Rose, is now shut up, and the other uses only three pairs of horses and two post boys formerly 33 coaches went through the town, now only one. WEST INDIA FiNE APPLES.—Thursday afternoon week 4,500 of this fruit, brought by the Bezer and Lancashire Liss from Eleuthera, in the Bahamas, were sold in Monument-yard, averaging from Is. to 3s. each. The same brokers have sold upwards of 100,000 this season, and the supply is expected to continue for another month. The experience of last year has enabled the importers to select and pack the fruit so as to secure its arrival in much higher perfection. The war between the Bar and the Press continues, and even extends. The barristers on the Western Circuit have resolved to exclude from their society all members of the bar reporting for newspapers and as there is 110 pretext for this aggression like that which the Times afforded to the Oxford Circuit bar, the morning papers have resolved to resent it by omitting the names of all the barristers employed on the Oxford and Western Circuits. THE TERMS "TERMINUS AND TERMINI."—The speculators in railway shares in the country knowing more of the fluctuation of prices in the lists than of the meaning of the Latin terms they use, have been thus lectured on the matter in a provincial paper"For the benefit of all and sundry who have to deal with railway matters, be it known that terminus is a Latin word sig- nifying an end' in the singular, and its plural is termini, which is the same thing as terminuses. Two termini and two terminuses mean the same thing and are both right; but to speak of two terminies is nonsense." RAILWAYS AND THE PARLIAMENT,—We are glad to see that a hint we some months since gave has been acted upon by Lord Monteagle, namely, to let railway Bills ap- pear in both Houses simultaneously. Lord Redesdale concurred in this view. It is, we are sure, a good way to facilitate those great measures. An improvement on that would be to have but one Committee composed jointly of Lords and Commons, to sit on the Bill, and of course but one investigation. That would save much time and expense. On Saturday evening a hostile meeting took place at Cardigan, but strange to say when the distance was arranged, the parties had but one pistol between them, and they agreed to toss for the first fire. The yeoman who was to have received it, thought discretion the better part of valour, so he ran away to the Greyhound Inn, and left the son of Mars to fire at the wind.— Welshman. A very minute inquiry has been instituted among the grocers and retail dealers throughout the Metropolis and adjoining districts, the result of which is both curious and interesting. In the wealthier quarters the increase in the consumption of sugar varies from ten to twenty per cent, bat in the Eastern parts of the town and poorer suburbs it actually ranges from thirty to sixty per cent.-Globe. A BRIGHT PROSPECT FOR THE LEAGUE.—The follow- ing snug family connection we find amongst the list of persons claiming to be entitled to vote in the election of knights of the shire" for the northern division of the county of Chester, the southern division of the county of Lancaster, and also for the west riding of the county of York:—Bright Jacob, senior! Bright John. M.P. Bright Thomas! Bright Jacob, the younger! Bright Samuel! and Bright Gratton The will of the late Mr. Joseph Somes, M.P the great shipowner, has been proved by the executors. The personal property has been sworn under £500,000. He bequeaths a sum of £70,000 to be invested for the benefit of his wife, JE30,000, part thereof, to be at her own disposal; it is the testator's particular wish that she should not remarry within two years. He bequeaths to his daughter, Mrs. Collyer, f70,000, with several other legacies, one of £15,000, others of £ 10,000 or under, to relatives; with are sidue divisible by statute between his widow and daughter. This testament was signed in draft on the day of Mr. Somes's death his illness having been very sudden. FEMALE SERVANTS.—We have often had occasion to notice the great want of female servants in the province, and in Adelaide particularly. The early age at which young parties marry off here has no doubt contributed much to this scarcity, and it is deeply to be regretted that no feasible plan seems to be available for supplying their places. If this should meet the eye of any of our friends in England however, it may be some guide to them as to the kind of persons we more immediately want. A hundred female servants would now find no difficulty in securing places in a colony at a handsome rate of wages.—South Australian. AT LEWES, on Tuesday week, a Sheriff's Jury was empanelled to assess damages in an action brought by Mr. John Henry Dew, against the publisher of the Brighton Guardian, for a libel arising out of the late charge against a Mr. Rallett and others of being concerned in negociations for the sale of an East India cadetship. In a condensed account of one of the examinations of Mr. Dew at Marlborough Street Police-office, it was asserted that a signature purporting to be Mr. Shank's was a forgery. This was not in the original report. To justify the necessity of the present action, it was stated that Mr. Dew had a large business connexion as an auctioneer in Sussex, which had greatly fallen off since the publication of this libel. For the defendant it was alleged, that the statement was merely an error; Mr. Dew should have sued the Times, for the loss of his Sussex business ought to have been ascribed to the accounts which appeared in the London papers in extenso, not to a paragraph in a Brighton journal; and it was in- sinuated that an action commenced against the Sussex Express had been stopped for a payment in money. It would seem that some sort of apology had been made by the Brighton paper for its mistake. A verdict was returned for the plaintiff, with damages of one-eighth of a penny. Theie was loud applause in the court on the announcement of the decision. THE ARCILEOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION assembled at Win- chester last week. Lord Albert Conynham was at his post as President, and the attendance was very numerous. At a general meeting in the Town hull, Mr. Pettigrew, the Treasurer, read a long report, in which it was stated that the society had succeeded in making several important dis- coveries, and in saving from destruction many interesting ancient buildings. Several parties set out on short excur- sions to view the antiquities of Hampshire—the barrows on Chilford and Twytord Downs, the hospital of St. Cross —the only relic of the mode of administering relief in the monkish times, and other places. Among the papers read at a meeting in the Town-hall, was one hy the President, in which it was slated that a letter, hitherto unpublished, was sent by Lord James Stuart to Queen Elizabeth, dated 1st December 131S7, announcing the consent of Queen Mary, his sister, to the coronation of his infant son James, and James Stuart's becotlllnøtRegent. Another paper, by the Reverend Stephen Isaacson, ifve a detailed account of a series of barrows in Derbyshire. In the most prominent were found several ornaments, which, trom their association, indicate that they were the ottering 01 some wealthy hunter- chief to the manes of his departed wife or daughter, cen- turies before the time of the Saxon invader. In this grave there was not the least vestige of bone, nor any difference in the colour of the soil i but there was a necklace of glass beads, of which eleven were found a3 perfect as on the day on which they were deposited. With these were found the enamel of twenty-six human teeth, which, owing to the chemical action in the surrounding soil, were the only vestiges of primeval beauty over whose mortal remains the band of affection raised the lasting monument. The eleven men, part of the crew of the John Hendrick Dutch East Indiaman, which was wrecked on St. Paul's Island, near the Equator, in May last, and whom, in con- sequence of rough weather, the Captain ol the Chance was unable to bring away, with nine of their companions, have happily been taken off the rock by another vessel. When the men beheld the Chance driven away by the weather, they endeavoured, under the guidance of the surgeon, to provide for extremities. They explored the rock, and found it to be half a-mile in circumference. There was a plentiful supply of fowl but no fresh water. They killed the fowls during the night and gathered eggs by day: a little pork which they had used as bait tor fish, and, with bent nails for hooks, they succeeded in catching some. There were also crabs upon the rock, the claws of which quenched their thirst. During the day, between eleven and three o'clock, on account of the extreme heat, they waded into the sea. In this situation they continued for eight days; when nearly the whole of them were seized with a swelling of the lips and tongue, and a vertigo that ior two days rendered them almost insensible. This arose from the want of water. On the tenth day they had showers of rain and they contrived to catch some in a cask by means of a sail spread out with a hole in the centre. This greatly revived them. On the 15th June, the Eliza, Captain Snell, belonging to Liverpool and trading to Sydney, hove in sight; a flag was waved, the ship observed it, boats were sent, and all the men were taken off the island. The rock on which the men were is supposed to be a volcanic erup- tion. The mate describes the composition of it to be iron, Stone, & glass, There are three spires or pillars on it. HANDWRITINGS.—1. Vigorous, light-haired, excitable temperament, what is commonly called the sanguine. The handwriting large, flowing, open, and irregular. 2. Dark-haired, excitable temperament, with brownofiorid complexion. The writing small, equal, and rather free and easy, with a firm and full stroke. 3. Light-haired, little excitable temperament; the complexion brown or sallow the form spare. The writing less free and more methodical than jSo. 1, but less vigorous and less decided than No. 2. 4. Dark-haired, slowly excitable tempera- ment dark complexion, spare form, and melancholic habit. Small cramp upright writing, without ease or freedom, evidently slowly penned. 5. Feeble, light- haired, little excitable temperament; character timid and nervous. The writing small, unequal, and feebly traced, or not written with decision. 6. Mixed temperament, combining two or more of the above. There are various combinations of these, which it would be unnecessary to particularise. Education and particular training of course make great changes on the natural tendency ot the hand- writing. Thus men of business acquire a mechanical style of writing, which obliterates all natural character- istics, unless in instances where the character is so strong- ly individual as not to be modified into the general mass. The female hand is also peculiar. Generally, it is more feeble and less individual than that of the male. In the present day, all females seem to be taught after one model. In a great proportion, the hand writing is moulded on this particular model those only who have strong and decided characters retain a decided hand- writing. We often find that the style of handwriting is hereditary: sons frequently write very like their fathers; and this they do independent of all studied imitation, because the temperament happens to be hereditary also. A delicate state of health, especially if it has occurred in bo) hood, has a considerable effect in modifying the natu- ral form of the handwriting; thus sometimes connecting the free and flowing hand of the sanguine temperament into a more staid and methodical one.—-Chambers's Journal, MELANCHOLY DEATH OF THE AFRICAN ROSCIUS.— LLANIDLOES, JULY 2S.-lt is with extreme regret I have to inform you of a most melancholy and fatal accidant that occurred to Mr. Aldridge, the African Roscius. From the interest you and your friends took in him during his sojourn among you, I feel satisfied that you would sym- pathise in his friends' bereavement, and the loss to the stage of one of its most promising ornaments. Mr. A. was returning in his carriage from the seat of Colonel Powell, where he had been driving about, and when within half a mile of this town one of the horses took fright at the blaze of light from the iron-works with which this country is studded; this occurred Oil the brink of a precipice, over which the carriage swerved with its inmate, dragging the horses and postilion, who had not time to disengage himself. The footman had a most providential escape he was in the act of alighting to seize the horses' heads as the carriage was precipitated over the cliff. It is needless to add that Mr. Aldridge, the postilion, and horses were killed on the spot—the carriage being dashed to atoms. The place where this frightful accident occurred is 120 feet from the summit to the bottom.—Correspondent of the Kerry Evening Post. PRACTICABILITY OF INVADING ENGLAND.—Certain of the French journals having lately seized upon-Lord Palmerston's statements in the House of Commons as proofs of the facility with which England may be invaded by a Steam Navy, our able contemporary, the Morning Herald, replies in the following terms:—"Invade Eng- land!! by steam-invade the summit of Teneriffe by steam The one is just as possible as the other. We make no boast of the offensive power of England, because it is a power hateful in any hands, though never could it be more safely confided to any country than to England, as she has al- ways shown; we speak not of the offensive power of England—because all offensive power is hatelu', and because we trust England will never again be challenged to exercise it, but in the defensive power of this country we may innocently, and without offence, exult, and pace Lord Palmerston and the Siecle, we do exult in the con- viction that the delensive power of England exceeds any defensive power ever possessed by any other nation, or by this nation, up to the present time. An invasion by a steam navy is spoken of. Have they who have thrown out the menace ever computed the steam tonnage com- manded by Great Britain, and compared it with the steam tonnage possessed by any other country 1 The steam tonnage in the military and commercial marine of Great Britain greatly exceeds half a million lof tons-probably approaches to a million. Has any European nation the tenth of this? Again, compare the registered sailors of Great Britain with those of any other country, and the number of British sailors will be found to preponderate in even a greater ratio. And yet with this enormous superi- ority of steam tonnage and of seamen, with probably a still greater superiority in sailing vessels of wrar, we are, say Lord Palmerston and the Siecle, to be invaded! ilow, and from what points? Is it to be anticipated that the British Government will calmly contemplate the mustering of an armament like the Boulogne flotilla, which three first-class steamers would now blow out of the water before this day week, in defiance of all the land batteries that could be raised to protect it 1 This is not to be an- ticipated. In the unhappy event of a war with any mari- time power, the first duty of the British Government would be £ o destroy—utterly to destroy —the whole maritime power of the enemy, and for this the changed character of modern naval war affords perfect facility to the power possessing the major vis in steam ships, sailing ships, and sailors. Land forts are worth nothing for the defence of harbours since the introduction to use of those guns of en- ormous calibre with which our first-class steamers are armed, and which are of a far longer range that any guns that can he used at land. The reduction of Acre in four hours — the prompt reduction of that same Acre so long unsuccessfully cannonaded by Napoleon, and upon which in the end he turned his back, is decisive upon the point. What, then, would be the early fate ot any steam navy encountering the steam and sailing navy ol Great Britain ? Would it not be extinguished in a month-for a steam navy cannot be long absent from shore. But the steam navy of an enemy being extinguished, there would be an end of all danger of a steam invasion. Steam, we admit, has bridged over the Channel equally and reciprocally for all peaceful traffic, but only in one direction for war, because it is impossible that after a month of war more than one of the belligerents can have any steam navy and it is not II nreasonable to suppose that in this, as in other contests, the stronger will keep the field longest, especially when the su- periority of the stronger is in the proportion of ten to one." THE LAW OF PATENTS.—As the average cost of patents for the United Kingdom and the continent is not generally known, and as new inventions are daily springing up in this country, France, Germany, &c., the following may be interesting:—The United Kingdom. Any person, whether a native or foreigner, may obtain letters patent in this country; but, in case of a foreigner not domiciled here. the patent must be taken out on his behalf by some person resident within the United Kingdom, as a communication from a foreigner residing abroad." No British subject can patent in his name an invention which is the commu- nication of another British subject unless the inventor is abroad, or is deceased. For each of the three kingdoms- for England, with which may be joined the colonies and plantations abroad, and the Channel Islands, Scotland, and Ireland-septrate patents are required to be taken out, at the option of the party the term for which a patent is granted is fourteen years. The average cost of a patent for England is £ 110 Scotland, £ 75 Ireland, £ 135 but where there are two names, there is an extra expense of about £ 17 10s.; and for every additional name about £12. When a patent is opposed, there is also an addi- tional charge of £4: lis. The cost of entering a caveat for England, bcotland, and Ireland, is £1 Is. per annum.— Foreign Patents: The English patentee of an inventiou may also obtain patents tor it in most of the European continental states, and also in the United States; the fol- lowing is the average cost of foreign patents :—Austria, including the Italian provinces, from one to fifteen years, at the option of the patentee—for five years, £25; ten years £45; and filteen years JE75, to be paid at com- mencement. Bavaria, trom two to filteen years—five years, £12; ten years, £ 1^ > and fifteen years, £20. Belgium, five years, £23; ten years, £37; fifteen years £70, to be paid as follows :—^ at commencement, and remainder in three months but an extension of the period for the second payment may be obtained, on shewing cause to the satisfaction ot the authorities. France, five years, £31; ten years £52; ntteen years, £73, of which £15 must be paid at the commencement, and £4 3s. 4d. per annum afterwards. Holland, same as iu Belgium. Prussia, five, six, or eight years, £ 15 at commencement. Russia, one to six years, £ 20 to Spain, five years, £ 5!). Sweden, Bve years, £ 15 the United States, fourteen years, £ 12U. All the above must be paid at the commencement. RAILWAY SPECULATION.—The mania—we can term it nothing else—to speculate in railway shares has taken pos- session of men's minds to a frightful and alarming extent. In London the fever rages to but a fractional degree com- pared with that in some parts ot the country. The whole community seem to have become more or less inoculated with it, from the nobleman to the peasant. A correspond- ent in Manchester writes. You would scarcely believe it, but such is the general passion for speculation in rail- way shares, that it ",as diffused itself into all the little hamleis and villages in this part of the country, and old women and men who have managed to save a few pounds, and have heard of the sudden acquirement of wealth of some by shares, are mad to get their money in railways. Indeed, it is impossIble tur me to give you a sufficient idea of this mania. The different places of resort for the, sale and purchase of shares resemble more the throng ouiside the cleared Committee-room of the London nnd York on the day of the decision, than anything else I know of. It is more than the police can do to keep a clear passage on the pavements. In Leeds we are told the rage for share gambling exceeds that in auy other place. The magistrates are compelled to employ a large police force to secure order in the stree's, lhe sharebrokers themselves are becoming alarmed- We are informed that a meeting was iately held in that pt ice by a number of the most respect- able brokers, Mr. Ridsdale, the senior sharebroker 01 the town, beiug in the chair, tor the purpose of repressing, if possible, the alarming spirit of reckless speculation. Liverpool is second only to Leeds. There a recent lunentabie occurrence may and it is to be hoped it wlll- lend to damp the unhealthy excitement." Nothing could be more injurious to the welfare of railways than the opera- tions of mad speculators. It therefore behoves parties promoting them (tberaitways) to discountenance the sys- tern to their utmost.—It is purely to the operations of speculators, we presume, that we are to impute the uadue rise in the price ot several railway shares; for in- trinsically they are not worth a half of the value at which they have been quoted. West Yorkshire shares were sold on Monday last at 16 and 16l in Liverpool and Leeds; West Riding about the same. That is, the lines that have spent each £ 60,000 or £70,OUO in a fruitless Parliamentary struggle, stand at double the figure they eveq were in their most promising appearance when in existence There is no actual reason whatever for such a rise. The understand- ing between the two Companies is not yet ratified, and therefore can be broken off-—Herepath's Journal. PLEASANT PROSPECTS. The last number of the Law Magazine contains an able article on the liabilities imposed bylaw upon those who take part in the gettiug-up of joint- stock schemes. As an exposition of the existing law the paper seems complete, and worthy of the attention of all who are engaged in such sppcutations except in very e^ treme cases 01 railway mania, it may be of use as a sedative. But the author writes simply as a lawyer: he foresees that an immense number ot the projects wIll end in leading their projectors into court: he quietly warns them of their place of destinations, aud what awaits them there. He has no plan to offer for expediting the enravelment of the tangled yarns of knavery anti folly-no measure to enable dupes to disenthral themselves from the delusions in which they have been involved, at the least possible expense of time and money. His feelings are quite professional: he sees a number of perplexed and interesting law-pleas approaching, and his whole faculties are intent upon the opportunities that witi be afforded for displays of legal acu- men. lie would not for the world spoil sport by quashing a suit in embryo, or lending his assistance to devise some means of curtailing the processes. He resembles the Scotch lawyers in The Antiquary, gleetully anticipating "a great Gl-nallan cause." Like amedtca) student "walk. ing the hospitals," in his raptures with some" beautiful case'' he loses all sympathy lor its victim. It is not that he is deficient in humanity, but professional enthusiasm is blind to the 8U¡renD<TS of the patients upon whom it per- forms experiments. This, if not one of the most alarming, is for laymen one of the most annoying symptoms of a possibly impending railway crash. Pecuniary difficulties are bad enough but for those who sufter, or apprehend suffering for them, to hear them callously discussed as abstract speculations, aggravates their torture. It is as if a sick man, labouring under a complication of diseases, were complimented hy his physician on learing such an instructive subject for dissection, THE HARVEST.—The wintry nature of our present sum- mer is already setting all the speculators in motion. But those worthy persons look on matters with a different eye from the rest of the world. A gloomy sky is their sun- shine; a rainy day is worth all the serenity of the south aud a tempest once a week is more genial than all the zephyrs that ever fanned the autamn. Tiley" look up" when every other human being looks down and a blight is only necessary to fill up the measure of their joy in every port from the Channel to the Baltic. In the mean time bread is growing dear; meat is bearing an increased price; and the answer is, the rain. The tariff, which was to have lowered all prices, and made even the income-tax a source of plenty, has not kept five shillings additional in the pockets of the economist; and Mr. Gladstone's wisdom and wit together have shown only the superiority of the man behind the counter to the man behind the desk.— Britannia. WILL OF THE LAIE SIR W. FOLLBTT.—Probate of the will of Sir William Webb. Follett, late of the Inner Temple, London, and of Park-street, Westminster, Knight, was granted on the 2d inst., to his brothers, Robert Bayly Follett, Brent Spencer Follett, and John Follett, Esqrs., and to his brother-in-law, Edward Gifford, Esq., the executors: they are also appointed guardians to the children. The testator devises his real estates to his executors in trust for his eldest son George, and on failure of issue to his other sons and their issue male. Bequeaths to Lady Follett £2,500 a year, and a legacy of £ I ,liO!) for immediate use. To his sister, Mrs. Synge, JH200 a year, and a legacy of £500. To his sister, Mrs. Bright, £3000 for her own use, and to her husband, Dr. Bright, £500. Bequeaths to the four sisters of his wife £ 1,000 each and legacies to his nephews, and a year's wages to his servants. Leaves his law books to his brother, Brent Spencer Follett, his brother Robert Bayly Follett first making a selection for his own use leaves to his brother Robert the watch he usually wore. Devises to his brother John the messuage, &c., atTopsham and bequeaths to each of his said three brothers a legacy of £ 1,500. Bequeaths to Lady Follett the carriages, horses, and all the household furniture, &c., for her life, but ex- pressing a wish that she should give to his son inheriting the real estate such of the plate as was received by him as presents. The residue of his personal estate (the whole of which was sworn under £ 160,000) he leaves to be divided among all his children. The will is dated July 11, 1814, and is ofsome length, the last sheet, in his own handwriting, containing several bequests. Sir William died on the 28th of June, in his 47th year. The mortality of London, and indeed, of England generally, shows a gradual annual decrease, whilst it is well known the population increases considerably. The rates of premium for Life Insurance have been greatly reduced during the last few years, yet the offices con- tiuue as prosperous as formerly. These facts clearly demonstrate that some cause, either unknown or un- heeded, must have produced such favourable results. Amongst these causes, the increased knowledge of anat. omy and the many very valuable discoveries in medicine will stand most prominent. The small pox, that annually carried off thousands, has been successfully combatted by vaccination and Gout, that used to claim its numerous victims, has been thoroughly vanquished by Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills.
I:he Church. CAMBRIDGE, August 8.-ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE.—The Rev. James Hoole Sharpies, M.A. has been appointed to the mastership of the endowed grammar school, Hever- sham, Westmorland. In the Arches Court, last week, Sir Herbert Jenner Fust gave judgment on a proceeding in the case of the Reverend James Shore. Mr. Shore had license to preach in the diocese of Exeter; but having preached in a Dis- senting chapel, not recognized by the Church as conse- crated, he had notice, on the 13th March 1844, that his license would be revoked. He continued to preach, and proceedings were taken against him on which he pleaded, that having on the 16th March 1844 taken orders as minister of a Protestant Dissenting chapel, and the oaths prescribed by the Toleration Act, he was no longer with- in the jurisdiction of the Church. The Judge now pio- nounced that plea to be inadmissible as a person cannot throw off his character as a clergyman after regularly taking holy orders. CLERICAL PREFERMENTS AND APPOINTMENTS.—Rev. Brereton E. Dwarris, M.A., Fellow and rector of Uni- versity College, Durham, and late sub.curate of St. Margaret's in that city, to the vicarage of St. Bywell St. Peter, Northumberland. Rev.

John Vivian Vivian, M.A., to the rectory of Cardynham, Cornwall, void by the death of the Rev. T. Grylls. The Rev. Alfred Martell, B.A. of St. John's College, Cambridge, has been elected by the trustees of the public charities at Saffron Walden. to fill the situation of master of the Royal Grammar School ill that borough, subject to the usual approval of the master of Queen's College, Cambridge. THE LATE DEAN OF LiNCOLN.—"We have the painful task of announcing the decease of the venerable Dr. Gordon, who has presided over the cathedral for 35 years. This mournful event cannot but have been anticipated in Lincoln for some months past, as well as from his ad- vanced age, as from the fact that the Dean's health had visibly declined, and his memory failed him for some months past. By his death many of our institutions lose a noble patron, as he was always a most generous, hospitable man, and his public charities were considerable. These latter, however, were far ex- ceeded by the good that he effected ill private, and by the hands of others. The late dean was remarkable for his very strong attachment to Lincoln, of which city he was a native, his father, Dr. John Gordon, having been precentor of the cathedral and Archdeacon of Lincoln. This feeling he evinced by declining the Bishoprick of Peterborough when it was offered to him previous to the late Bishop, Dr. Marsh. In early life he greatly distin- guished himself at Cambridge, and was, we believe, a fellow of St. John's College, ill that University, and sub- sequently tutor to the then Marquis of Bath. The earli- est dignity that he enjoyed was the Deanery of Exeter, from which he was preferred to Lincoln 111 1810. The dean was distinguished all his life by a zealous and care- ful preservation of things as they were, as well in matters connected with the ministry as in politics. Some years ago the communion plate having been stolen from the cathedral, the dean presented a very handsome new gold service, valued at neatly GOO guineas. Lincolnshire Chronicle.
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF LORDS.—THURSDAY. EXIiRCISE OF THE lloYAI. AUTHORITY. — L >rd Campbell put a question to the Lord C))fnceHorre)utive to Her Majesty's visit, to GerlI1;ny. He wished to know how the royal author, rity was to bi* cxerciscJ (luring her Majesty's absence? On all former occasions it had been cusioinavy to appoint a regency or lords justices nor did he think that circumstances were so far changed as to warrant a deviation from that practice. He bej,geo, therefore, to inquire whether it was the intention of the government to appoint lords justices ?—The Lord Chan- cellor said he would give a short and distinct answer. It was not the intention of the government to appoint lords justices. The highest legal authorities had been consulted, and they were of opinion that no such appointment was necessary.— After some furtherconversa'i'>n I he matter dropped.—Several bills were forwarded a stage, and their lordships adjourned. FRIDAY. The House of Lords sat for a short time last night, and disposed of a considerable quantity of routine business. None of any peculiar public interest was brought under consideration. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—FRIDAY. In reply to a question from Mr. J. Smith, Sir H. Peel said that the negociations between the Colonial Office and the New Zealand Company had been recently carried on in a happier spirit, and he believed an amicable result might be arrived at. highly beneficial to the colony. This was to he attriouted almost entirely to Lord Stanley, who would not allow his sense of public duty to be interfered with by any feelings of displeasure which he might be supposed to entertain in reference to the personal attacks which he had sustained in consequence of the course he had pursued to- wards New Zealand. In reply to a questionfrom Col. Verner, Sir R Peel said it was quite true that Mr. Watson had been deprived of the cotnuussiou of the peace, aud also of the deputy lieutenancy of the county of Antrim, for at- tending an Orange procession, and signing resolutions to the effect that the time had arrived for re-establishing the Orange Society. When the pledges of the Crown and of the Parlia- ment to put down these societies were called to mind, it would be at once seen that the course pursued by Mr. Watson left no alternative to the Government than of directing that he should be superseded. Lord Palmerston then called attention to the state of affairs in Syria. In the year 1840, induced by the allied powers, the people of that couutry joined in the effort, ultimately success- ful, to overthrow the domination of Mehemet Ali, They were promised as their reward—a reward guaranteed by the allied powers—that the oppressions under which they had laboured for centuries should be removed. This, however, had not been done; and England was bound to see that the engage. ments then entered "into should be carried out. In 1842 an attempt was made to overcome the difficulties in the way of settling the affairs of that country, and the plan then suggested, if carried out, would have restored peace to Syria. The Turkish Government, however, interposed, and endeavoured 10 set different races against each other in order to weaken both. The civil war which ensued might be fairly attributed to the want of energy on the part of the allied powers, and more particularly on the part of Great Britain. He was of "pinion that, in order to maintain the integrity of the Turkish empire and prrMtve the balance of power in Europe, it was necessary that the disturbances in Syria should be put an end io, and.for this purpose be hoped the allied powers would insist upon carrying out the plan of 1842, which had been al- ready adopted by the Sultan. Sir R. Peel s"id it was his anxious wish to maintain the independence and integrity of the Turkish empire, aud this it was which made their relations with the Turkish Government so very delicate, for they were of necessity reluctant to en- force on Turkey even the fulfilment of her engagements. This difficulty had been experienced by the late Government, as well as by the present. There was. in fact, A difficulty in mducing Turkey to act with good faith towards Syria. Th-'re had been the shabbiest evasions on the part of the Porte. but he had only that day received a communication from Sir S. Canning, from which he inferred a prospcct that lhe Porte would fulfil its engagements. Sir. C. Napier was about to address the house, when it WM counted out. PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT BY HER MAJESTY. On Saturday, Parliament was prorogued in the usual manner by Her "Majesty in person. The gallery of the lloute of Lords was opened this day for the admission of strangers at ten minutes after twelve o'clock. Shortly afterwards the galleries and body of the House were lilled with elegantly dressed ladies. The Dukes' benches were reserved for the Peers, all of whom appeared, as usual on the auspicious occasion of the presence of the Sovereign in the higher House of Parliament, in their full robes. There was more than the usual attendance of Peers, owing pro. bably to the fact of her Majesty not having prorogued Par- liament in person since August, 1843. On the Bishops' benches we noticed the Bishop of Ely and the Bishop of London. None of the Judges were present. In the place set apart for the Foreign Ambassadors were the French, Uussian, Prussian, Austrian, and Turkith Am. bassadors, together with a great number of attendants. The steps of the throne, as is usual on these occasions. were covered with rich carpettinj. The chair of the Prince of Wales was placed on the right of her Majesty's throne, and that of his Royal Highness Prince Albert on the left. The chairs were all lined with crimson velvet, and were ornamented with rich gold fringe. At five minutes before two o'clock her Majesty entered the House, preceded by the Duke of Wellington, bearing the Sword of State, the Duke of Argyle, bearing the Crown on a crimson velvet cushion, and the Earl of Zotland, bearing the Cap of Maintenance. Upon her Majesty en'erinj the House the whole of the Peers, Peeresses, the ladies, and all present, rose to receive her. Her Majesiy leant on the arm of Prince Albert, and was conducted to the throne by hisltoyal Highness. Thv! Mistress of the Robes, her Grace the Duchess of Ullccleuch, was iu attendance on her Majesty in her official capacity. Her Majesty then took her seat on the throne, the Duke of Wellington, bearing the SworJ of State, standing on her left hand, and the Earl of Zetland, the Duke of Argyll, and the Lord Chancellor, standing on her right. Her Majesty then, in a cleat voice, commanded that their Lordships would be seated. The Usher of the Black Rod (Sir Augustus Clifford) was then comluanded to summon the House of Commons illto tue presence of the Sovereign in the House of Peers. The Speaker shortly afterwards, dressed in his state robes, and accompanied by a great number of Members of the Lower House, appeared at the bar. and addressed Her Majelity as usual on the occurrences of lhe session. Her Majesty then gave her royal assent to the Exchequer- bills Bill, the Appropriation Bill, the Small Debts 8.11, the Silk Weavers' llill, the Bkckwall (Eastern Counties) Hail- way Bill, the Bristo) Hates Bill, aud the Marquis of West- minster's Estate Bill. Her Majesty then read the following speech in a most clear and distinct tone :— My Lords and Gentlemenf I rejjice that the state of public business enables me to release yo II from further attendance in I'atli..rnellt. In closing this laboriolls session, I must express to you my warm acknowledgments for the zeal aud assiduity with which yon have applied yourselves to the consideration of many subjects deeply affecting the public welfare. I have given my cordial assent to the Bills which you pre- sented to me for remitting the Unties on many articles of import, and for removing restrictions on the free application of capital and skill to certain branches of our manufactures. The reduction of taxation will necessarily cause an imme diate loss of revenue, but I trust that its effect in stimulating commercial enterprise, and enlarging the means of con- sumption, will ultimately provide an awple compensation for any temporary sacrifice. I have witnessed with peculiar satisfaction the unremitting attention which yon have bestowed on the measures recom- mended by me to your consideration, at the commencement of the Session, for improving and extending the means of Academical Education in Ireland. You may rely upon my determination to carry those measures into execution tn the manner best calculated to inspire confidence in the Institutions which have received your sanction, and to give effect to your earnest desire to pro- mote the welfare of that part of my dominions. From all Foreign Powers I continue to receive assurances of their friendly disposition towards this country. The Convention which I have recently concluded with the King of the French for the more rffcctual suppression 01 the Slave Trade will, I trust, by establishing a cordial and active co-operation between the two Powers, afford a better prospcct than ha- hitherto existed of complete sncceU ID the attain- ment of an object for which this country has made so many sacrifices. Gentlemen of the House of Commons, I thank you for the liberality with which you have voted the Supplies for the service of the current year. My Lords and Gentlemen, On your return to your several counties, duties will devolve upon you, scarcely less important than those from the per- fOrhlance of wlllch 1 now re ieve YOII. I feel assured that you will promote and confirm, by your influence and example, that spirit of loyalty and conientment which you will find geneially prevalent throughout the country. In the discbarge of all the functions entrusted to you for the public welfare you may confidently rely on my cordial sup- port; and I emplore the blessing of Divine Providence on our united efforts to enconrage the industry, and increase the comforts of my people, and to inculcate those religious and moral principles which are the surest foundation of our security and happiness. The Lord Chancellor said—It is her Majesty's royal will and pleasure that the present Parliament be prorogued to Thursday, the 2nd of October next; and this Parliament is accordingly prorogued to Thursday, the 2ud day of October next. Her Majesty then rose from the throne, aud the royal pro- cession left the House iu the same manner in which it entered. Prince Albert took her Majesty's hand, and thus the royal pair left the House. Weare happy to be enabled to conclude our report by staling that her Majesty looked in excellent health, as did also Princp Albert. Her \1 ajesty wore a splendid tiara of diamonds on her head, a urilliant necklace and stomacher, and a dress of white satin. Altogether the scene within the House was of a most imposing description.

TEST FOR GUANO.—Let every one who has bought guano test it by the following simple process —Put a couple of ounces into a crucible, and heat it to redness in a fierce fire. If genuine it will become black; and when the burning has been carried on long enough it will change to a white ash, losing about half its weight or even more. But if loam has been mixed with it, the ash will be red or pink, and the loss of weight will be much less. In the latter case the sample is to be suspected, and should be put into the hands of a chemist, who would, for a very small fee, decMe immediately whether eaith had ueen used for aduheralion or not. If that is found to be the case the buyers should imloeclÎately bring actions against those who sold (hcm the guano; and the latter can ill thdr turn proceed against the gentleman in London. There can be no doubt about the result, wirh a jury of farmers or gardeners. A crucible can be had for a few pence in any market town but if there should be a difficulty about it, a very good shift may be made with a tobacco-pipe, the only objection to which is that it holds so little. FLOWER-GARDEN AND SHRUBBERIES.—Roses budded last month should hi1ve the bandages loosened or removed if the buds have taken well, and the shoots should be shortened back to prevent wind from breaking them off near the buds. Continue laying carnations, cloves, &c. Early struck pink pipings should now be planted out in flower-bordeis or beds in the reserve garden, for transplanting in autumn < r spring. Sow 10-week stocks in beds to be potted in autumn for early hlooming next year. Sow also poppy anemone seed if not already done; the least sprinkling of earth over the seed is su.JJclent. Li1UI!S, and other strong growillg shrubs, injuring choice kinds, by over-¡Šfowing them, should be cut back to allow the air to circulate around them. in order to harden the wood before winter. Pit, and Frames.—A fc'.v cuitings of every description of plants for hedding out should now be put m to be potted off before autumn. Sow schizanth is seed tor blooming in pots next spring, and take particular care that cuttings have sufficient air in the morning dunno- • his gloomy weather, to dry off all damp likewise be careful not to water too freely. FLORISTS' FLOWERS—The extremely wet weather has heen untavouratde for many floricultural operations. Trans- p anting seedlings, and rooted cuttings, layers, &c. Sec., is, lowever, an exception. Carnations,"pinks, and pansies, should e immediately pricked out in the beds, where they are to ower and polyanthuses will now part to advantage. Where carnations are grown in p >ts, they may be removed to any convenient shed, and during showers tayered; the operator lavtng previously prided himself with some proper compost eaf-mould and Sandy loam, aud pegs of fern or lead. In trimming the shoots of carnations and picotees, the tips of the leaves stiould nOt be shortened, In wet weather tulip bulbs may be looked over, and the loose skins removed where off- sets are small ,and soft. they should be put in sand, otherwise they will often perish before planting tune. Pinks will yet no to put Ja. shouid the previous crop of pipings not be suffi- cient. Dahlias will require much attention; thin out the • k'i an<* ° 'ntr've» by every available means, to catch the nightly depredators winch prey on them; this cannoi be too often, or too strongly urged, un the attention of the amateur. HARDY FRUIT AND KITCHEN GARDKNFruit Gather early pears and ap,jjes. Their fitness requires particular at. tention. If they a.gathered a, few days too soon, they will be insipid and watery for thi-y do notacquire a sugary quality by laying in the fruit-.room, as is the case with more late varieties. But, on the other hand, these early kinds ought not to hang a day beyond the precise time they prove best. Attend to this year's budded and graf:ed trees, and see rhat they are not injured by matting used iu tying. Dress off the lips of the stocks behind grafts. If this be done now the wounds will be nearly, or in some instances completely, healed over before winter. Wall trees will require to be kept in order as previously directed. This insist season has encou- raged numerous outbreakings of lateral shoots. Where the wall is already sufficiently covered with foliage, these recent growths are worse than useless; they shade the more efficient portions, whilst they draw sap from the tree bilL-return little for, as Mr. Knight observed, the elaborations of the very young foliage is appropia'.ed to its own development and growth of the pushing shoot. Kitchen Garden. — Sow brown cos, the black-seeded green cos, and brown Dutch cabbage lettuces for standing the winter. Prepare ground for planting out cole- worts. Take up pickling onions, and lay down the topa of the main crop with a soft broom. Some of the white Spanish onion may be sown.
