If this White Rose offend thy sight, It in thy bosom wear, 'Twill blush to find itself less white, And turn Lancastrian there. CONGRBVE is said to have added the following stanza :— But if thy ruby lip it spy, To kiss it should'st thou deign, With envy pale 'twill lose its dye, And Yorkist turn again, Si, mea Cara tibi rosa non arriserit alba, Pone tuo nivibus candidisre sinu. Turn, minus alba, dabit manifesti signa pudoris, At que erit ante oculos mox rosa rubra tuos.

Where shall I search for thee, Land of the bless'd ? When shall I meet with thee, Island of rest ? Sages have dream'd of thee, Poets have sung,- And was it but falsehooll That dropp'd from their tongue ? That Island of Rest I have Sought for in vain; It Inust lie 'twixt the two seas of Pleasure and pain! Life always reflects Now a smile, now a tear,— Isle of the Sirens Thou canst not be here. From childhood I loved all The grand mystic stories — The songs of bright Hellas, And old Roman glories I read, and I longed for Their Isles of the Bless'd, Dut life is too real For a dream-land of rest; Try the wine-cup—the dice-box— Try love. or try fame, Try pleasure-or SOITOW- The end is thc same 1 Custom can rob even Vice of its charm— But it brings not the feeling Of passionless calm.

Make a rii;ht choice and right use of your company; for the least evil we ordinarily get by evil company is to be sullied with their smoke, if not burnt with their fire.

How TO KNOW WHETHER YOU ARE DUUNK. OR SOBER. Whenever you go to bed, look at the bed-posts: if they are standing still conclude that you are sober but if they seem to be dancing the polka, you may reasonably suspect that you are drunk. The passion of De Due, the natural philosopher, for music was so predominant in his latter days. that a piano was placed by his bed-side, on which his daughter played great part of the day. The evening of his death, seeing her father ready to sink Ï!1to a slumber, she askell him, "Shall 1 play any more 1" "Keep playing," said he—"keep playing." He slept, but awoke no more. A TAILOR'S BILL IN 1616.—For making a suit of clothes, 1s. for making a cloak, Is. 6d.; fur making a morning gOWlI, Is. 8d. for making a black g-own, Is. 6d.—[A tailor's bill in 1815 is somewhat different to this. Nowadays the making a suit of clothes costs—but we forbear the subject is, doubtless, painful to many of our friends, and—and-our own tailor's bill has yet to be paid!] A YETERAN BENEDICT.—Died on the 29th ult., at Tideswell, ill the 90th year of bis age, Mr. Joseph Dawson. He had been married six times, yet he died a widower. He was deterred from entering the holy state a seventh time by the prophecy of a gipsey fortune-teller, who foretold that his seventh wife would bury him, Yet so forlorn did he feel without a helpmate, that he was frequently heard to exclaim, he was sorry he had not" chanced it. At a public table, the other day, two" gentlemen'' got into a vehement dispute upon a subject of which they were profoundly ignorant. A large dog, whose slumbers on the hearth were dis- turbed by the altercation, rose up, and began to bark furiously. Hold your tongue, you brute, said an old gentleman who had been quietly sipping his wine you know no more about it than they do." The table was instantly in a roar, and the brawlers Drere abashed. HACK BROUGHAM FOR SALE.—In consequence of the termi- nation of the London season. It has had several coats of vari- ous colours, and is very light in the head. To any party wanting a thing of the sort, the Hack Brougham will be sold a bargain. It may be had by the job, or will be sold outright to any one disposed to deal liberally.—Punch. CONFUSION OF CAUSE AND EFFECT.—An itinerant preacher, when discoursing on the goodness of Providence, said, But, my brethren, even death itself, which, for our many offences, we have all merited, Providence has wisely placed at the end of our lives for, oh! what would life be worth were death at the beginning In another part he remarked, "It is another instance of the goodness of Providence, that large rivers always flow by large towns. A FRIENO IN NEED.—In one night Aretas lost his whole property tbrough a dreadful fire; and thereupon relative, friend, acquaintance, yea, even his own dog, forsook him. A cat only remained faithful to him, who shared his distress, and by his amentable cries swelled still more the sufferer's grief. How," said Aretas, "art thou then my only friend iu time of need? Ah why am 1 so poor ? Yet no—there yet remains to me a morsel of bread; come, faithful friend, sbare this treasure with me, it is moist with my tears. I had smelt this, cried the animal-devoured it, and ran away There is a. sickly sensitiveness in many of the best of the laity, which makes them shrink from any political duty as from con- tagion, and hinder others who would readily discharge it. A respectable mechanic, on returning from a political meeting not long since, was thus addressed If you had sought reli- gion with half the ardour with which you engage in politics, you would have been a much better man than you now are." He calmly replied, "somebody must attend to politics, or you will not much longer be suffered to worship God according to the llictates of your own conscience; or to SIt quietly under your own vine and fig-tree, with none to molest or make you afraid." —Christian Observer.

The following anecdote of Dr. Hally is too interesting to be omitted:—Queen Caroline, on visiting the observatory at Greenwich, was so much pleased, that on learning, to her astonishment, that the doctor's salary for the arduous and im- portant duties of Astronomer Royal amounted to no more thau 100 guineas per annum, she declared her intention to request the king to increase it. The doctor, however, entreated her to avoid doing so, lest the pecuniary reward might become an object of cupidity, in which case a man of influence and no philosopher would inevitably obtain the appointment. A NEW LIGHT,—When Cowper was made bishop of Galloway, an old woman. who had been one of his parishiuners at Perth, and a favourite, could not be persuaded that her minister had deserted the Presbyterian cause. Resolved to satisfy herself. she paid him a visit in the Canongate, where he had his resi- dence as Dean of the Chapel Royal. The retinue of servants through which she passed staggered the good woman's confi- dence, and, on being ushered into the room where the bishop sat in state, she exclaimed, Oh, Sir, what's this 1-And ye ha' really left the guid cause and turned prelate." "Janet (said the bishop) I have got new light upon these things." "Sol see, Sir, (replied Janet) for when ye was at Perth ye had but ae candle, and now ye've got twa before ye; that's a' your new light: M'trie's Life of Andrew Melville. WHAT THE CRIMINAL LAW WAS.—It may be as well to re- mind the public just now of the case of Mary Jones, as related in the speech of the enlightened and humane Sir William Meredith, in the House of Commons, in the year 1777, when endeavouring to correct the depraved taste of legislators for enactments of blood. Under the shoplifting act, he said, one Mary Jones was executed, whose case 1 shall just mention. It was at the time when press-warrants were issued on the alarm about Falkland Islands. The woman's husband was pressed, their goods seized for some debt of his, and she, with two small children, turned into the streets a begging. 'Tis a circumstance not to be forgotten that she was very young (under 19) and remarkably handsome. She went to a linen- draper's shop, took some coarse linen off the counter, and slipped it under hercloak, The shopman saw her, and she laid it down. For this she was hanged. Her defence was, • that she had lived in credit, and ^anted f w till a press-gang came and stole her husband from her; but since then she had no bed to lie on-nothing to give her ;hildren t0 eat—and they were almost naked; and perhaps she roisht have done something wrong, for she scarcely knew what she diil The parish officers testified to the truth of this story; but it seems there had been a good deal of shoplifting about Ludgate An example was thought necessary (by the judges), and this woman was hanged for the comfort and satisfaction of some shop-keepers in Ludgate-street. When brought to receive sentence she behaved in such a frantic manner as proved her mind to be in a desponding and distracted state—and the child was sucking at her breast when she set out for Tyburn gallows To repeal this law," the late Lord Ellenborough said, was an experiment pregnant with danger." It is repealed, and sncb scenes ui Wvwi eaa au longer be enacted.
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. MRS. CAUDLE HAS RETURNED HOME.—THE HOUSE (OF COURSE) NOT FIT TO BE SEEN." Kit, CAUDLE, IN SELF-DEFENCE, TAKES A BOOK. After all, Caudle, it is something to get into one's own bed again. I shall sleep to-night. What! You're glad of it ? That's like your sneering I know what you mean. Of course; I never can think of making myself comfortable, but you wound my feelings. If you cared for your own bed like any other man, you'd not have staid out till this hour. Don't say that I drove you out of the house as soon as we came in it. I only just spoke about the dirt and the dust—but the fact is. you'd be happy in a pig-stye I thought I could have trusted that Mrs. Closepeg with untold gold; and did you only see the hearth-rug ? When we left home there was a tiger in it; I should like to know who could make out the tiger now 1 Oh, it's very well for you to swear at the tiger, but swearing won't revive the rug again. Else you might swear. You could go out and make yourself comfortable at your club. You little know how many windows are broken. How many do you think ? No; I shan't tell you to-morrow—you shall know now. I am sure Talking about getting health at Margate all my health went away directly 1 went into the kitchen. There's dear mother's china mug cracked in two places. I could have sat down and cried when I saw it; a mug I can re- collect when I was a child. Eh! I should have locked it up. then? Yes that's your feeling for anything of mine. I only wish it had been your punch-bowl; but, thank goodness! I think that's chipped. Well, you haven't answered about the windows—you can't guess how many ? You don't care ? Well if nobody caught cold but you, it would be little matter. Six windows clean out, and three cracked You can't help it? I should like to know where the money's to come from to mend 'em! They shan't be mended, that's all. Then you'll see how respectable the house will look. But I know very well what you think. Yes you're glad of it. You think that this will keep me at home—but I'll never stir out again, Then you can go to the sea-side by yourself; then, perhaps, you can be happy with Miss Prettyman 1 Now, Caudle, if you knock the pillow with your fist in that way, I'll get up. It's very odd that I can't mention that person's name, but you begin to fight the bolster, and do I don't know what. There must be something in it, or you wouldn't kick about so. A guilty conscience needs no—but you know what I mean, She wasn't coming to town for a week and then, of a sudden, she'd had a letter. I dare say she had. And then, as she said, it would be company for her to come with us. No doubt. She thought I should be ill again, and down in the cabin; but with all her heart, she does not know the depth of me—quite. Not but what I was ill; though, like a brute, you wouldn't see it.

The fender in the parlour will never come to itself again. 1 haven't counted the knives yet, but I've made up my mind that half of 'em are lost, No: I don't always think the worst; no, and I don't make myself unhappy before the time but of course, that's my thanks for caring about your property. If there ain't spiders in the curtains as big as nutmegs, I'm a wicked creature. Not a broom has the whole place seen since I've been away. But as soon as I get up, won't I rummage the house out, that's all, I hadn't the heart to look at my picktes but for all I left the door locked, I'm sure the jars have been moved, Yes; you can swear at pickies when you're in bed; but nobody makes more noise about 'em when you want 'em. I only hope they've been to the wine-cellar then you may know what my feelings are. That poor cat, too—What ? You hate cats ? Yes, poor thing because she's my it. If that cat could only speak—What ? It isn't necessary ? I don't know what you mean, Mr. Caudle but if that cat could only speak, she'd tell me how she had been cheated, Poor thing! I know where the money's gone to that I left for her milk-I know. Why what have you got there, Mr. Caudle ? A book? What! If yo. aint allowed to sleep you'll read ? Well, now it is come to something 1 If that isn't insulting a wife to bring a book to bed, I don't know what wedlock is. But you shan't read, Caudle no, you shan't; not while .I've strength to get up and put out a candle. And that's like your feelings You can think a great deal of trumpery books yes, you can't think too much of the stuff that's put into print; but for what's real and true about you why you've the heart of a stone. I should like to know what that book's about ? What ? Milton's Paradise Lost ? 1 thought some rubbish of the sort—something to insult me. A nice book, I think, to read in bed and a very respectable person he was who wrote it. What do I know of him i Much more than you think. A very pretty fellow, indeed, with his six wives. What! He hadn't six, he'd only three? That's nothing to do with it; but, of course, you'll take his part. Poor women! A nice time they had with him, I dare say And I've no doubt, Mr. Caudle, you'd like to follow Mr. Milton's example; else you wouldn't read the stuff he wrote. But you don t use me as he treated the poor souls who married him. Poets, indeed I'd make a law against any of 'em having wives, except upon paper; for goodness help the dear creatures tied to them Like innocent moths lured to a candle Talking of candles you don't know that the lamp in the passage is split to bits ?

[FROM PUNCH] Gentlemen of the Fourth Estate.—I have not been un- mindful of the quarrel which has lately broken out between yourselves and the bar. I even prophesy from it considerable public benefit j if. as late circumstances have given me to suppose, you are beginning to be aware of the importance of your calling, to feel your own strength as a public body, to take counsel by other corporations how to make your own respected, and to submit to no furtbcr impudence or insult when you can conveniently repress it. My soul rejoices in the prospect of a war between the bar and the press of these kingdoms. As a member of the latter profession, I am of course disposed impartially to siand by my friends. Yes, in this row, or in any other where your interests are menaced, there's a cudgel iu Fleet-street ready to make play for the common cause. I have just been reading in Fraser's Magazine the biography of a great leader úf the enemy, who has lately passed away. If The greatest skill of Foil tf," Fraser says, ''consisted in presenting his case in the most harmonious and fair-purposed aspect. If there was anything false ór fraudulent, a hitch or a blot of any kind in his case, he kept it dexterously out of view, or hurried it trippingly over. But if the blot was on the other side, he bad the eye of the lynx, and the scent of the hound, to detect and run down his game. He had the greatest skill in reading an affidavit, and could play the art/ul dodge'in a style looking so much like gentlemanly candour, that you could not find fault." Thus it is that the writer, a barrister evidently, eulogises the various qualities which raised that eminent man, and complacently enumerates his merits. He could play the artful dodge," in a manner so candid as to defy suspicion. He could detect an enemy s lies in a «,inute—his client's falsehood or fraud he could keep out of view. There's a panegyric for a gentleman! For these precious qualities he earns -Cla.OOO a 3 ear; he obtains the highest post of the law; he goes to the grave honoured and followed by ttie Queen's Ministers and the bar. for artful dodging with an air of candour; for dexterously reading an affidavit; for cloaking his client's lies and abetting his fraud. Bravo! Let the Temple bells be muffled tite porters wear crape; let the bar walk after the hearse with dishevelled wigs, and the silk gowns march in tatters; 'e*. judges howl a threnody, led by the Chancellor and the Chief Baton and let Sir Robert and Sir James sacrifice an nnder-secretary 011 his tomb. Let us all sit down and weep—clerks, lawyers, newspapers, Prune Ministers, Lord Chancellors, and lemp e porters—»e all led it—we're all so deep in affliction re so sincere, so honest! O! omnipotent unfathomable goddess of humbug Statues should be erected to you through all our city. A golden one before Kiickitigham Palace, a great braz. n one before West- minster, a rigid marble one in the otitre of Alinack's, and an enormous leaden one in Exeler hall. But berore the PuMcA office we would have the statue flung down, and the great iconoclast waving his baton over the ruins. This, however, for future consideration and other ages Re- turn we to the bar humbug, and muse, dear triends, th reupou. Has it not often struck you. considering these things, how cruelly the attorneys have been dealt with by public repute— how, by ourselves in novels, plays, and fictitious works,- hence by the public in daily life,—-that class of men has come to be considered as a dangerous, shppery, wicked set of prac- titioners ? When we talk of roguish lawyers as talk we do— lawyers are supposed to mean attorneys—the bar somehow escapes soot-free; there's no stain upon them, they get such large fees, they become barons and earls so ollen; above all, 1 hey prate so u.a^nificently and constantly about their own honour and dignify, that the public believes them they reap the dignity, and the poor attorney Comes in for all the odium. And yet these men are but the creatures of the attorneys they go where the latter bid theui, they state what the attorneys tell them. It Quirk, tiainniou, and Snap prescribe the artful ¡j..dg£: Sergeant Buztuz performs it in court. If an honest man is to be bullied in a witness-box, the barrister is instructed to bully him. If a murderer is to be rescued from the gallows, the barrister blubbers over biui, as in Tawell's case j or accuses a wrong person, as in Curvolsler's case. If a naughty woman is to be screened, a barrister will bring heaven itself into court, and call rovideiice to witness that she IS pure and spotless, as a certain great advocate and schoolmaster abroad did for a certain lamented Queen Caroline. There they are to be sold to the first bidder, these folks of the long rulle. Other bona Toba, are seot to the spinning-house for doing Oil worse; and these-tLese mount to tie peerage and the "oo\sack-tbese talk about the lIignny anti indepen- dence of their prOleSSlOn forsooth these say that a man connected with their profession shan't report for the news- papers! It's dishonourable to do that. They'll turn a man from their mess who reports in a paper; they'll expel a man from 'heir spotless society for reporting in the Times or the Morn- ing Chronicle. Thfy do not expel a man for disgustftig hypocrisy; for looting false wiiiussjfor the artJlIl dodgeior keeping irauti anù out of view — they load bim with honors iorit. Each ot thr instances above mentioned has risen high to ra! k and respect. This is a law adviser to Ministers- thai was a Minister of the Crown, the other went to th: grave with five hundred weeving reputable gentlemen at his back- hOliest gentlemen, who will have no connection with the press. Very well.

See all these things, 0 Prt.s.! Send your com- missioners in the train of these spotless men of law-and have your say. There is no call ior politeness, no truce or friendship henceforth between yu.

Don t fail to point out their «-u»oent merits. Hold up their respectability to public *d«»iiration! it i« possible that from this war between the bar and the press sonie ood may arise; so it is possible that from 'his falling out some honest men may come by their own; which is the fcrveot vith of the benevolent f UNCH.

Large quantities of plums are just now imported from France;, shipped from Havre. Their quality is said to be excellent. Such was the abundance of peas in Canterbury market on Saturday last, that they were sold at one penny a gallon! -Canterbury Journal. It is computed that when the King and Queen of the French and all their family are lodged at the Tuilleries, with their respective attendants, there are no fewer than 1,500 persons. THE LATE FATAL DUEL AT GOSPORT. — Lieutenant Hawkey, who shot Mr. Seyton in the late duel at Gosport, and Lieutenant Pym, the second of Lieutenant Hawkey, both of the Royal Marines, of the Portsmouth division, have been removed from the list of officers of the Royal Marine corps. THE LATE MR. ADOLTHUS.—It is somewhat remarkable that so many of our great lawyers die without leaviutr a will; as is the case with this distinguished barristN, w hose personal effects have been administered to under £5,000. The Dean of Durham has written a note to Mr. Hume, informing him that the cathedral of Durham has been open to the public for several hours each day for the last four years without any payment being required from any one; and the Dean is happy to add, that not one instance of misconduct on the part of any one of the numerous visitors has come to his knowledge." RAILWAY SPECULATION.—The amount subscribed for new lines this year in sums above £2,OUO is, in Manchester, upwards of £6,OOO,Ovo, and in Liverpool upwards of £5,000,000. A curious discovery was made by Mr. Wright last week among the archives at Southampton, of a book containing the original naval laws of that port as early as the four- teenth century. One of them is, that if the majority of the sailors of a vessel on the point of sailing were of opinion that the wind was unfavourable, and the vessel was wrecked afterwards, the captain was responsible for the value of the goods lost. It is supposed that these are the earliest oavallaws now extant. We think the Limerick Chronicle ought to be severely punished for publishing the followingscandalous paragraph. Our only motive for re-publishing it in our columns is the hope thatO Connel), (who reads us regularly) will thus see it and act accordingly:—"There are not less than four O'Connells now upon the staff at Sydney, New South Wales. It would be well for Ireland if the rest of the name were in the same thieving settlement."—" Thieving settle- ment, we apprehend, is a misprint; we should read thriving settlement;" and yet there is something very ex- pressive in the word thieving," when we recollect how New South VVales has been colonised.—John Bull. A PEEP INTO GLASGOW.—We understand that Mr. Meikleham is going on at a great rate in London obtain- ing subscribers for his reprint of The Glasgow Courant" of 1745-46, containing the romantic adventures of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. The volume altogether will be a most interesting document, and well worth twice the money charged for it.— Glasgow Constitutional of 13th oi August, 1845. ACCIDENT AT REAPING.— On Thursday afternoon, Charles Russell, a boy aged 15, met with an accident under rather singular circumstances. He was standing behind a person who was reaping, when the man having stumbled, he fell, and his hook caught the boy under the knee, in- flicting a severe wound. The sufferer was instantly re- moved to the Infirmary of this City.—Gloucestershire Chronicle. A little girl who was crossing the Lancaster and Pres- ton Railway, last week, when a train was approaching, was knocked down between the rails by the builer of the en- gine, and the whole train of carriagees passed over her without doing her any barm. According to the Times, it has been estimated that no less a sum that ten millions sterling must be sent out of this country in the course of the year, to pay the calls on toreign railway shares; and speculators are warned of the effect which that may have upon the money-market. In the decline of life the most safe and efficacious oc- casional medicine, for giving tone aud strength to the stomach, and acting, at thwalJle time, as a gentle and healthful apperient, is Hampton's Pill of Health"—a Family Restorative which has conferred the most essential benefits upon those who have fortunately had recourse to its health-restoring aid enabling them to apply to them- selves the well-known line from Shakspeare- Though I look old, yet I am strong and lusty." To show the extraordinary nature of railway specu- lahon 10 Glasgow, we may mention that on a liue near this city, on which a deposit of £2 10s. was required per share, they soon ran up to a premium of £5 and £10 per share; and on Monday they were quoted as high as £23 and £24, but on the following day th y fe l to JE17, and now they are running up again, in consequence of what is caHed "time" or "bear" bargains, ruinous to some, but profitable enough to others; and this is a feature, we are afraid, which pervades too many of them. Sober business is now shoved aside, anJ speculation—speculation — railway shares and deposit, scrip and premium, seem to be the order of the day.—Scotch Reformers' Gazette. RAILWAY TRAFFIC.—It is at all times interesting to notice the vast change which the establishment of railways is making in our habits, and how, with more enlarged facilities of travelling, the greater part of the population, who never went further from their own doors than their legs would carry them, now become railway travellers; nothing can better exemplify this lhan the increase in the traffic on the London and Birmingham line since the reduction ot their fares in July 1844. The following is the compara- tive mileage of passenger traffic—viz.: Half-year ending June 30, 1843: passengers, 360,784: milts travelled, 23,395,261: average number per day, 1982.—For 1844, 371,331: 24,664,979: 2040. For 1815: 615,904: 38,753,260: 3384. THE IRON TRADE IN FRANCE.—In consequence of the great extension that naval constructions in iron have lately received in Great Britain and other countries, the Minister of Commerce has been debating whether foreign iron intended for such vessels ought not to be admitted without paying the established duties. This question, demanding a preliminary investigation, has been referred to the council-general of mines, which, after examining the progress of metallurgy in France, and the cost of iron in England and Belgium, is to decide whether foreign iron for naval constructions ought to be admitted duty free or not.-Galignani of Monday. An unmarried woman, named MarieMaHet, died a short time since at Thenezay (Deux Sevres,) at the advanced age of one hundred and fifteen. She was born in 1730, at Pouzanges; and from her youth has followed the business of a dressmaker, which she did not relinquish until she attained her one-hundred and tenth year. During her life she has had forty-five apprentices, the greater number of whom had preceded her to the tomb. She had by her in- dustry acquired a small income, which maintained her in corafoit when she could no longer work. She was very abstemious in her habits, of a very lively disposition, hut before her death was so thin as to be little more than a Iiv- iug skeleton. The coffin was carried to the grave by eight young women, dressed in white, followed by one hundred others dressed in the same way. When the body was lowered into the grave an immense number of chaplets were thrown into it by the bystanders, who had assembled iu great numbers.

JUSTICE MAULE.—On Tuesday evening week between eight and nine o'clock, after having liberated himself from a tedious day's business at St. Mary's hall, Mr. Justice Maule, while passing down the stairs from the magistrates' room, as he approached the bottom met with a sudden and rather violent fall, caused by his foot slipping. An officer in attendance immediately laised his lordship, who was at first considerably alarmed by the shock be had received, trom the awkward position io which he fell. Happily, however, he sustained no serious hurt, and soon recovered his self-possession, shortly alter- wards proceeding to Warwick lor the night. The fall was purely accidental, the staircase and passagt"8 being well lighted at the time it occurred. We understand that, on arriving at bis offici d lodgings at Warwick, he found them fireless and cheerless, altogether presenting a very har- rack-like" appearauce, partly inconsequence of his arrival a day earlier than expected.-Coventry Herald. T.he London papers continue to exclude from their reports of trials and ca8es the names of all the barristers on the Oxford and Western Circuits, a majority of those gentlemen having decided that it is beneath their dignity to ha\e anything to do with the press. The public are, therefore, so far as the metropolitan journals are con- cerned, in blissful ignorance as to who conducted this or that case,—who delivered an eloquent address for the prosecution or defence,—who has the most practice, &c., &c. In point of fact, the barristers are legally dead,— quite defunct,—gone the way of all flesh. Which will come off best in the contest remains to be seen. In the meantime the public, as we thought they would, are duly supplied with accounts of the proceedings in the courts, and the only sufferers are the junior and unem- ployed counsel who have hitherto derived pecuniary advantage from reporting for the public journals. ACCIDENT FROM AN INFURIATED BULL.—A bull be- longing to Mr. John Lane, of Deerhurst, bad been pur- chased by Mr. Beard, butcher, Barton-street, in this city and on .\londay the animal was removed froll1 the farm, in the company of two cows to the slaughter-house, The bull proceeded quietly enough until he reached Worcester-street, when, owing to the indiscreet use of an umbrella by a person who was passing, he became in- furiated, left the cows, and proceeded at a headlong pace along a part of the street, then turning round he went back towards Kingsholm, creating the greatest alarm amongst persons who happened to be on the road. On reaching Kingsholm, the bull proceeded up a lane, and on observing a person working in the garden he jumped the hedge, and made towards him. This happened to be Mr. John Sims, a market gardener, who, being unable to get out of the way of the infuriated animal, was knocked over, gored and trampled upon. Death would have been the inevitable consequence, had not a man who witnessed the attack, most courageously, and at the risk of his own life, entered the garden and succeeded in driving the bull away. On being conveyed to his house it was found that Mr. Sims had sustained a broken thigh and other injuries of a very serious kind; his life is not yet considered to be out 01 danger. The bull on being driven out of the garden, proceeded at a rapid pace through fields and meadows in the direction of where he had come from, and it was only from sheer exhaustion and from the cir- cumstance of falling into a ditch that a person was en- abled to approach, and stab him. He bled to death, and was then removed to the premises of Mr. Beard, in a ^yaggofl,—Gloucester Chronicle, OUR NATIONAL DEFENCES.—It is extremely gratifying to have had the assurance of Ministers, that in the event of war requiring the whole of our troops, England has still got the Chelsea pensioners to fall back upon. The wooden walls of Old England are safe while she has still her wooden legs to stand upon. We understand that a review of the Chelsea pensioners will shortly take place, as a pre- J liminary to bringingthe veterans into active service. There may be some difficulty in obeying the words of command, for the ordinary operation of shouldering arms will be somewhat of a puzzle to those who have no arms to shoulder. Recover arms" will, be all evolution that many would be delighted to perform if it were practicable, and Stand at ease" will be a suggestion that those who have lost their legs may find some difficulty in complying with. Whether the Chelsea coips is to form a portion of her Majesty's Foot we have not heard, but the regiment of No Foot" would perhaps be a most appropriate title to most of them. Quick march" will, we understand, not be insisted upon as part of the exercise to be performed by the veterans, who will be divided into rank and file, some of whom will rank as old files, according to seniority. The guns dealt out to those who have no legs will be coustructed on a prin- ciple that must prevent them from kicking, for it is felt to be hard on the old legless boys to have kicking guns given them, when it is out of their power to kick in return.— Punch. MunDER AT LEICESTER.—A murder of a most appal ling character occurred at Leicester on Monday week. A young man, about four or five and twenty, named William Hubbard, a framework knitter, had lived with his wife for some time past in-a small tenement, occupy in. it jointly with his brother, who is also married. The matrimonial career ol the former, though but of three years duration, has, it is said, been most unhappy from its commencement. His wife is reported to have been a still, steady, hard-working woman, aud he on the con. trary, to have been improvident and idle. They had been poorly off for sometime, and he was determined to fall upon the union. This his wife resisted strenuously, declaring her intention of proceeding to Birmingham, where her mother and a sister reside, and there earn her own maintenance. This morning was fixed upon by her for her departure thence. About six o'clock her husband, who, in consequence of their disagreements, had slept at his mother's over night, knocked at the door—desiring his wife to let him in. She came down stairs with only her night-clothes on, and had no sooner opened the door than a scream was heard, and the brother and his wife coming down on the instant, the unfortunate woman, the wife of VV illiam Hubbard, was found weltering in her blood, with a friglllful gash in her throat; indee", she was only noticed to give one deep sigh ere she expired. The murderer fled immediately, but has beeu captured, and is now in jail. LIVERPOOL.—We learn by the Liverpool Times that a new line of steamers is about to be established between this port and Constantinople, which will greatly facilitate the trade of England and the Levant. Three large steamers are in progress for this line, one of which, named the Levantine, will be ready in about two months; and until they are completed the line will be worked by steamers temporarily engaged for the purpose. The first vessel which is to be dispatched is the Novelty, at present lying in the Clarence Dock. This vessel well deserves the name which it bears, being not only pro- pelled by the screw, but worked by a newly invented rotatory engine, which promises to make a complete change in steam navigation. In point of size this engine is not more than one-third the dimensions of an ordinary engine of equal power, and its consumption of coal is small in the same proportion. This is the first successful attempt to construct a marine engine 011 this principle, and if the succeeding applications of the same principle should be equally successful, the saving of fuel and gain of space will be such as to lead to an immense extension of steam navigation. The whole weight of the machinery of the Novelty is only 24 tons. The Levantine and other steamers of the new line are all to be constructed on the same principle as the Novelty, so that it will be seen in operation on a large scale very shortly. THE INCREASE OF DEMAND FOR IRON.—The most useful, and, in fact, most necessary, metal, for the welfare of man, is daily expanding its power, not only in Europe, but in Asia, Africa, and America. Railways are being laid down from north to south, east to west; but this is not the only advantage that will be derived by great commer- cial uations as a rapid transit for passengers and mer- chandise, but the benefits it will bestow in tropical climes, so subject to earthquakes, where the lives of the inhabitants are constantly in jeopardy. Several very extensive con- tracts have lately beeu entered into in this country for the erection of iron houses, or villas, in the West India Islands, Cuba, and the Havana, Mexico, Columbia, Bolivia, Central America, Peru, and Chili, where the dreadful effects of those convulsions of nature are so frequently felt. It is evident that iron will, in a few years hence, become one ol the greatest articles of commerce for the security of indivi- dual life and private property. In referring to the melan- choly conflagrations that have lately taken place at Quebec, where nearly the whole city was reduced to ashes, being chiefly built of wood, how different would it have been had galvanised iron beeu the principal article in building? Iron abounds in the Americas, both North and South, and only wants working to bring it into general use. How many lives would have been saved in the numerous earth- quakes that have taken place within the last fifty years in South America, bad they had iron dwellings, instead of the wood and feeble fabrics they now possess ? A change, however, we are glad to see is very soon likely to take place by the erection of galvanised iron dwellings and warehouses in our West India colonies, Chili, and nearly aH parts of South America—contracts having been entered into for the sending out of several well-constructed buildings of that metal. AMEUICA.—ARRIVAL OF THE BRITANNIA.—DESTRUC- TIVE FIRE AT NEW YonK—The British and North American Royal Mail steam-ship, Britannia, Captain Hewitt, arrived in the Mersey Friday evening, after a rather prolonged voyage, owing to head winds. She brings :!5 passengers. The Texan Convention had consummated tiie merging of their country into the American Union. rile Canadian advices communicate no intelligence of moment. On Saturday the 19th July, at about three o'clock in the moraingi line of the most terrible fires that has ever occurred in that city, visited New York. It originated in New-street, and then communicated to the rear of a building 111 BroRIJ-street which contained a large quantity ol saltpetle* The explosion that took place when this ignited was heard in every part of the city, the flames that issued firing the houses on the other side, at 100 leet distant. hall-past seven o'clock a.m., the whole area between Bond-street, Exchange-place, Beaver- street, and Broadway> and up Broadway to the Waverley- house was one vast amphitheatre of flame, sweeping along like a hurricane, and bearing before it immenne masses of smoke, cinders and f:I-tkcs ot fire falling iu all directions. It is impossible for us to enumerate the whole of the build- ings destroyed suffice it to say, that 302 houses, and property estimated at nearly 10,000,000 dollars, have been entirely destroyed. ls said that at least uue-half ihe capital of the largest insurance offices in the States has been swamped by this disastrous fire. By the proclama- tion of the mayor the military turned out to protect the property of thf citizens, and their aid in preserving order, as well as that "t the new police, has been most efficacious. The year 1845 is year ol fires on the American Continent. I'hiladflphia, Mobile, Wilmington, Pittsburg, and Quebec have been the scenes ot in st destructive ravages by the devouring element, and New York is now added to the list. The fare lasted from half-past three p.m., on the 19th uIt., till noon ol the following day. The news received at new York, from Mexico, is not of so late a date as that received by the lust West India mail, being only to the 18th of June from Vera Cruz. CIRENCESTEK.—Mr. Cripps, the new Lord of the Treasury, was re-elected for this borough on Thursday week, without opposition. SUNDERLAND.—The nomination of candidates to supply the vacancy in the representation of this borough, caused by the elevation cf Lord Howick to the Peerage, took place on Wednesday week, in front of the Town- hall, in High-street, where spacious hustings were erected for the accommodation of the speakers and the friends of the respective candidates. Mr. J. Wilson proposed, and Mr. Hills seconded the nomination of Col. Thompson. Mr. Hudson was nominated by Mr. J. J. Wright, and seconded by Mr, Spoor. Both candidates addressed the electors at great length. The show of hands was in favour of Col. Thompson. The polling commenced on Thursday. Mr. Hudson took the lead and gradually increased his majority till the close, when the numbers stood—For Mr. Hudson, 627 for Colonel Thompson, 497 majority for Mr. Hudson, 130. On the result being made known, the mob in frout of the hust- ings became very turbulent, and stones and brickbats were thrown in all directions. Several of the carriages which had been engaged in conveying Mr. Hudson's voters to the poll were destroyed, and the mayor's carriage was also much injured. One of the stones thrown struck the mayor upon the head, and injured hirn considerably. The Riot Act was read, -and a reserve body of the county police were called in, who succeeded in restoring order. This victory restores the seat to the Conservatives which was lost by the resignation (in 1841) of Mr. Alderman Thompson, M.P. for Westmoreland The other member, Mr. V. Barclay, is a Liberal. THE NEW RAILWAYS OF THE SESSION.—Now that the most eventful session of Parliament recorded in railiVay history has reached its close we are enabled to annoUnce from our official returns the following as the great reguits of its legislation. Parliament has sanctioned the cou- struction of 2,090 mifes of new railways in England and Scotland, and of 560 miles in Ireland. This is in effect to double the extent of the railways of Great Britain, exclusive of Ireland, Xhe capital authorised to be raised ill shares for this purpose amounts to ,£3l!6S0,OOO, ex- clusive of £ 6,80u,0u0 required for the Irish lines, taking in all £ 38,480,000, to applied in England within the next two or three years for our own railways. The cost of the new railways per mile will be thus very less than that of existing lines. The average of the new is nearly £ 15,000 per miie, and that of the old exceeds £ 30,U00 per mile, jt win ti,u8 be seen that tlie amount to be provided for the new railways is not so enormous as has been supposed from the number of bills before Par- liament. At the same it i. sufficiently large to require serious consideration, and to arrest the progress of reck- iessspecutation..610,000,000 a-year for the next three years can be easily spared by a nation whose annual savings are calculated to exceed £ 5O,OOO,Q0O. By an investment of these £ 30,000>000 profitably the country will be enriched, and multitudes benefited both III present and permanently. At the same time the demand for money, when the calls for these works come to be made, will be sufficient to put a check upon all idle and foolish schemes, such as those against which we have warned our readers. fhe expected levenue from the new lines considerably exceeds jM,000,000 sterling per annum,•—Railway Chro- nkle. PIRACY.- Sebastian de Santos, Manuel Antonio, and Jose Antonio, the three foreigners who were acquitted at the Exeter Assizes on the above charge, left Exeter on Friday. Santos arrived in Liverpool on Satuidav, and will shortly be conveyed to Brazils, and M. Antonio and J. Antonio arrived in London, on Saturday,-by the Great ."Western Railway, and will shortly be sent to Oporto by their respective consuls. THE DANGER OF EATING MuscLES.—Monday morning, a man and his wife named Walters, residing in Crown-street, Soho, together with their child, were at. tacked with most alarming symptoms, in consequence of having eaten profusely of muscles, their bodies and heads being swelled in a frightful manner. Medical assistance was procured, and the contents of the stomach were ejected by the stomach pump, and antidotes administered, with the desired effect, to the man and woman; but the child, a boy four years of age, is still in a precarious state. DRAINAGE AND SEWERAGE OF LARGE TOWNS.—The Government Bill (prepared by Sir James Graham) for the improvement of the sewerage and drainage of towns and populous districts, and for making provision for an ample supply of water, and for otherwise promoting the health and convenience of the inhabitants, is now printed, and avowedly for the purpose of being circulated through the country, as the 15ill will not be proceeded with until next P, session, the second reading being postponed for three months. It occupies 118 pages, and the heads of the clauses alone fill seven folio pages closely printed. Ample provisions are made for the election of Commissioners by rate-payers, for the appointment of inspectors, their mode of meeting and conducting business, Mtc. The publicly interesting portions of the Bill, however, are those relat- ing to the system of drainage and sewerage, &c., proposed to be adopted. Towns are to be effectually sewered and the inspector for the district is to furnish the Commission- ers with an estimate of the cost of the sewerage works. All sewers are to be vested in the Commissioners, and to be under their management and control. The Commis- sioners are to make new sewers wheie requisite, mills and other obstructions to drainage being enabled to be purchased and removed. Private drains are to be made from houses to communicate with the sewers, and no houses are to be built without drains. Houses are to be built on a proper level, to be fixed by the Commissioners. Vaults and cellars under streets are not to he made without the consent of the Commissioners; and drains, privies, and cesspools, are to be kept in good order, and to be subject to inspection by the olhcers of the Commissioners. The latter are also to cause streets to be cleansed, and dust and ashes to be removed from houses, and they may water the streets. A medical officer is proposed to be appointed, subject to the approval to the Secretary of State, to inquire in:o and report upon the sanatory condition of any town or district, and such medical officer is to perform post mortem examinations when required by the coroner. The Com- missioners may, further, on report of the said medical officer, order filthy and unwholesome houses to be cleansed and whitewashed, and an inspector of nuisances is to be appointed for superintending the general execution of the proviiious of this Act and for receiving complaints and laying informations, if necessary. Slaughter-houses, and knitekersl-yardso &c., are to be registered, and regula- tions are to be made for their cleanliness and for their inspection. The inspector is to make a report on the sufficiency of the supply of water, and, if necessary, state the best means of increasing it; and the Commissioners may, with the approval of the inspector, contract with water companies for a supply, or may lease any powers vested in them. Power is also to be given to purchase springs of water, &c., by agreement, under the provisions of the Lands' Clauses Consolidation Act, &c. Sewer rates, paving rates, and general rates, are to be made, to be levied on occupiers of houses and other property, &c., and the Commissioners are to make water rates, See. THE IRON TRADE.—The almost unparalleled prosperity which now exists in the manufacturing districts—the continued activity in the iron trade, as well as metals generally, and the general prospects of the commerce of the country, would, on former occasions, as is known from painful experience, have caused a feverish excitement in the iron trade, and raised the prices to an exorbitant and unhealthy degree. We are happy to observe, that such is not the case at present, notwithstanding that up to the closing of the Parliamentary session nearly 3000 miles of railroads are now at liberty to commence working in England and Ireland, that new foreign schemes are yet being daily projected, and that consequently the prospects of the future demand for iron must increase rather than diminish, still the prices remain firm. In the early part of July the nominal price for bar-iron was £ 10 per ton, although large sales were effected at £ 2 under that figure, and at the termination of the quarterly meetings the price fixed was £8 per ton. Scotch pig, quoted at 90s. and 80s. per ton, was announced at 65s., and these prices still continue, with some little fluctua- tion, in different localities the latter kind may still be quoted at the same price, and bar at E7 10s. to £8. As we so well know the dazzling expectations, not immedi- ately fulfilled, cause undue excitement, and that such excitement is of as injurious a tendency as depression, it is pleasing to notice the firmness in the iron trade, and the consequence is, that while large orders are pouring in, the make keeps in progress with the demand—a highly remunerative price is secured—-the workmen are obtaining wages on which they can support themselves and families—strikes, so injurious to the welfare of the community, are prevented, and general prosperity is the result. It would be highly satisfactory to obtain correct conclusions as tp the present stale of the iion trade, with respect to supply and demand; and although a difficult point to arrive at, the stocks being only known to the makers themselves, still we may approximate near to the truth. In Scotch pig the make in the first six months of the present year has not very far exceeded the average of 1844, which was 350,000 tons, while the first six months of 1845 is equal to 4i)0,Q00 tons per annum, or 7693 tons per week. The increase in the export of pig-iron from Scotland was, comparing the previous six months of the two years under notice, 3180 tons in favourof the present year; looking at the quantity likely to be consumed in Scotland for malleable iron, and probably some iucrease in the exports, there certainly are no appearances of a speedy decline on present prices, but rather, that with a steady demand, the prices will remain firm. With respect to the 3000 miles of railway before-mentioned (taken in round numbers), and estimating the quantity at 750 tons per mile, gives a total of 2,250,000 tons of pig-iron required for casting into railway iron alone, but as this will be spread over a period of several years, the increased demand not likely to come unexpectedly upon the trade, and (33 we have so often before alluded to) the painful experience which has been acquired from former ill-timed and injudicious increase in prices, we think there is every probability that for a considerable time to come, this staple branch of our commerce will be marked by ullugual firmness, and a degree of steady prosperity uuknONn for years. While on the subject of iron, it will be interesting to many readers to trace the progress of its make during the past century. In 1740, the quantity of pig-iron produced in England was only 17,000 tons, from fifty-nine furnaces; in 1750, it had in- creased to 22,000 tons in 1788, the amount was 08,000 tons, and 121 furnaces; in 1806, the number of furnaces had increased to 169, producing 250,000 tons and in 1820, the amount of pig-iron in England was 400,000 tons; while, last year, the total produce of pig-iron could not have been less than 800,000 tons, which has considerably increased in proportion in the first six months of the present year.—Mining Journal. INCOME AND EXPENDITURE OF UREAT BHITAIN.-An important financial paper has recently been printed by order of the House of Commons. ibis document is in continuation of a Return made last year, ami is an ac- count of the public income and expenditure of the United Kingdom in 1843, 1844, and 1815. As this Return is only to the 5th of last January, it does not include the results of the Tariff alterations of the session which has just terminated. The national income, as appears by this Return, has been gradually increasing year after year, while the expenditure has remained nearly stationary. Thus the results may be briefly given. Years. Income. 1843 S51,120,040 1844 •• 56,935,022 1845 58,590,217 Expenditure. 1843 £55,19:>,159 1844 55,501,740 1845 55,103,647 Thus it appears that in the year ending January a, ^843, there was £ 4,075,119 excess of expenditure over lilcome, but there was excess of income over expenditure In 1844 and 1845—nearly one million and a half in the former, and three millions and a half in the latter year. The sources whence the immense revenue of the COUlh try is derived are various, and taking the general heads fnr last vear t.J1PV are as follow I— Customs and excise £ 3S,576,684 Stamps. 7,327,803 Assessed and land taxes 4,429.870 Property and income tax 5,329,601 Post-office. 1,705,068 Crown lands 441,583 Other ordinary revenue. 394,598 Money from China •• •• 385,008 zC58,590,217 On the other hand, the expenditure runs into a great variety of channels. Last year the cost of collecting the customs and revenue was £ 1,406,476, and, with the pre- ventive service charges, amounted to £ 1,967,584. The collection of stamps, assessed taxes, &c., was £ 2,860,536. Here then, the expense of collecting the revenue amounts to nearly five millions sterling, or about one-twelfth. The civil government costs much less than might be expected, namely, £ 1,618,265. This includes £371,800 for the allowance to the Sovereign (privy purse, salaries of the household, and tradesmen's bills) £ 277,000 for allow- ances to the Royal Family £26,440 for the Irish Vice- royalty; £ lU0,64t> for the salaries and expenses (including printing) of Parliament; j6538,593 for "civil depart- ments," including superannuation allotvances; £ 277,501 for other annuities, &c.; and JE6285 for pensions on the civil list. Under the expenses for "Justice" there appear £ 559,782 for the courts of justice; E594,312 for police and criminal prosecutions; and 1;703,111 for "Correction." The diplomatic expenses are £ 380,609 for- the year, namely, £181,186 for foreign ministers' salaries and pen- sions; £ 129,303 for consuls' salaries and superannuation allowances; and £70,120 for disbursements and outfit. The army, navy, and ordnance cost £13,961,245 during the last year; £ 0,178,714 for the army, £5,85t!,219 for the navy, and XI,924,312 for the ordnance. There are other items of expenditure which need not be mentioned, as the object is to show the general dispo- sition of the public revenue.—The post-otfice charge of collection, &c., amounts to 1:974,804; £ 430,208 were expended on public works; and £ 17,762 appear under the bead" Bounties, &c., for promoting fisheries," A LIGHT IN THE EAST.—A newspaper is about to be established in the city of Jerusalem.

THE CHURCH, THE PEARL OF PRICE.I may say, without fear of any imputation of vanity, that I have now seen and made myself acquainted with all the branches of the Catholic Church, and with all the sects existing 00 earth and I have not shunned to sit at the leet of the Bishops in the Roman Catholic Church, in the ArmeoiaD Church, in the Greek Church, in the Chaldean and Ab- yssinian Church, with Weslevans, Independents, and learned Baptists and the result of my investigation is, that the Church of England is the Pearl of Price'' and thejewetof the earth, and the mightiest masterpiece of bible illustration which the woild has witnessed since it fell under the yoke of sin.— Dr. Wolff. CIIUIICII OF ENGLAND AND THE SACRAMENTS.— 1 he Church ol England does not command the priest, on reciting the words of institution, to take the paten into his hands, and to break the bread, and to lay his hands upon it, and so upon every vessel in which there is any wine to be consecrated, to show that the consecration is to take effect and to terminate upon the sacramental elements, and not on the recipients of the sacrament; but for the simple reason that our Lord commanded this to be done; and any one who reads the prayer of consecration must see this to be the case. For it recounts the history of the institution of the sacrament, and adopts the very words of Christ Do this in remembrance of Me;" a command which is evidently adduced as an authority for what is done, and to comply with which was plainly the intention of the direction Cleui-cA of Ertyla?td Quarterly RSview* ECCLESIASTICAL PREFERMENTS.—^The Rev.

The lowest amount set down in any of the years over which the Return extends, is in the case of the Bishop of Exeter, whose revenue last year, it will be seen, was only £ 341 10s. 5d. The average revenue of the see however ex- ceeds £ 1500 per annum. The amount of income herein stated includes all sources of revenue.

From exi,eri- cnce I can safely recommend that Wheat be cut com- paratively grc,-ni at least ten days earlier than it used to be: that it ought to be sheaved as soon as cut and firmly stood up in ihe fields, there to remain until it becomes in good order, and fit in all respects to be housed. Wheat thus treated will remain in the fields without the danger of becoming so quickly sprouted as if the corn had been allowed to gf-t quite ripe. and allows, in ever so changeable a season some period in which it can be secured in perfect condition. Agricultural Gazette. WLRKWORJL.— The following circumstance connected with this pest may bp. possibly tiirued to a good account. In Fe- bruary last I plan'ed three gallons if early Cornish kidney potatoes in good soil, under a wall having a southern aspect to my surprise, only one or two had made their appearance up to the middle of May, and by the 2nd of June three or lour more, without the s:nailest indication uf any further ve- getation over the whole bonier. 0[1 cxamining the rows to my surprise, the remainder of the sets were nearly filled with live wireworms, the potatoes having the appearance of being drilled all through with au augur of the size of a quill. Now, foes not this tenii to show, that bv leaving a few refuse turnips, potatoes, carrots, See., in the field in au umn. covered wi'.h soil, that th'se destructive insects may be destroyed in great numbers in the spring by stockin* out t5ie roo s, m,i carrying ihein to a bea,) of quick lime ? -Lincolnshire Chronicle FLOWER GARDEN AND SHRUBBERIES—Pillar Ro;es out of bloom should be carefully pruned; cut out a moderate por- tion of the old and young wood,so as to thin them sufficiently, to prevent the wind troui blowing them down the wood left shou d not be shortened, but should be allowed to grow during the season. Climbers ou walls, &c., shou d be fastened in, and occasionally pruned, to prevent them from getting too thick. As weeds increase rapidly 011 gravel walks in showery weather, take particular care to keep them clean, frequently rolling and sweeping them. Iloe and rake borders and bed-t as often as they require it. Keep herbaecous plants neatly tied up, removing hn riead flowers, but do not cut the plauts down to the ground their stems have begun to die off, as it weakens the plants ior another season.—Pits and Frames.—- Cuttiiits put in a few weeks ago will now be rooted, and should be removed to a more airy situation for a few days, to harden previous !o potting off fill up the empty space again wi h fresh kinds no title must be allowed to pass by go on pro- pagating all ihe new and belter k '.ds of Verbenas.

Pinks.—Con- tinue to plant out pipings, either it store-beds or where luteuded to reuiaiu. if you are fortunate enough to have any seed-pods thin season, they shoulu be sheltered, and tile calyx splii down, to preveut the lodgment of moisture, which infal- libly rots the seeu-paj. Carnations and Picotees, if not already layered, should be finished off without delay. From the con- tinued wet we.ther there has been but little opportunity for cross impregnation," It is not usual to layer the run or im- pure flowers, ihoush occasionally some return to their proper chaiacter, if planted in poor soil. Seedlings may still be planted out, occasionally examining the beds, as the worms art- apt to uproot hem before they get established. Parities.— I ropagate well at this season irom side shoots throw awav all seedlings that are not a decided improvement on the parent variety, keeping none but those which ate round, thick pe- talled, clear and decided in their markings, perfect in the eye, ftc. ° HARDY FRUIT AND KITCHEN GARDEN.-The ground being at present not oniy soaked but beaten with heavy rains, its surface will become too compact in many instances when dry weather sets i.\ The surface should therefore be stirred by forking over, or otherwise, before it gets too hard for working freely. In many cases farm-yard manure, the most desirable of all, cannot be readily obtained, and the gardener has to substitute whatever vegetable refuse he can collect, weeds included the latler c.in be easily rotted with the exception of their seeds, enough of which to ctop the ground manured usually escape decompoSltlOQ; and in a very wet time, these weeds, chiefly of an annual description, will not be destroyed by hoeing; they are, as it were, only moved and transplanted )era by the operation. 1 he (jirounuse), for example, may be tossed frequently 0.1 the surface in wet woather, and still survive, its roots beiii"- rolled up HI balls of mud. Under such circum- stances, when hoeing proves ineffectual, digging is to be pre- ferred as being bc»t for the ground, which afterwards retains a fresh, clean appearance for a considerable time, with little or no additional expense. Continue to cut off runners from Strawbeiry plattis where increase is not required. Dry bean- stalks are, perhaps, the best of all traps for earwigs, therefore n -i. reserve a qnantlry ior the purpose. Kitchen Gttrde. -Ttio main crop of Onions now demand particular attention. If the old stalks have stepped growing, ihe crop is fit for being taken up, and if tuis can be done in a dry day so much the better but wet or ury it must be done before a second growth com- mences, otherwise the Unions will not keep. Attend to the eartuiug up of ihe earliest planted Celery, choosing adry day. Sow Cauliflower for spring. Plant out Oolewoits as the plants oecome tit.
