Efiurdi. The Bishop of London and family have left town for a visit to Paris and Normandy. The Hon. and Rev. William C. Henniker, whose death was announced in our last, was son of the late, and Bro- ther to the present Lord Henniker. The Hon. and Rev. gentleman had only attained his 33rd year. George Hudson, Esq., M. P., has presented the sum of £200, in aid of the subscription tor the proposed new Church for the district of All Saints, Monk-Wearmouth, recently created under Sir Robert Peel's Endowment Act. CHURCHES IN IRELAND.—Among the recently issued Paliamentary papers is one containing a copy of the cor- respondence between Lord Heytesbury, as Lord-Lieuten- ant of Ireland, and the Irish Ecclesiastical Commissioners, relative to the building and repairing ot Churches in Ire- land. It seems that the Lord-Lieuttnant laid before the Government a communication from the Ecclesiastical Com- missioners, with which the Government was not well pleased, and further information was demanded. It appears that JE34,600 is now yearly expended in Ireland for providing requisites for the decent celebration of Divine worship, which was considered a large sum. It was stated that £10,603 was expected to arise in the cur- rent year from the sale of perpetuities. The Commissioners in answer to the mandate, among other matters mentioned that they had 244 applications for the enlargement of Churches, and that some of them were of a very urgent character. ACCIDENT TO THE DEAN OF EXETER.—We deeply regret to state that a serious accident occurred on Friday to the very Rev. the Dean of Exeter, Thomas Hill Lowe. This rev. and highly respected dignitary had gone to Culm- stock, for the purpose of visiting the church at that place, leaving his horse at the inn. Having concluded the business which brought him there, he returned for his horse, in order to journey homewards, when, going himself into the stable, the horse kicked at him, and the blow took effect on the bone of the knee. Assistance was immediately rendered him, and though the dean remains at Culmstock, we are happy to say the accounts announce him as going on favourably,—Bristol Mirror. By the death of Dr. Gordon, Dean of Lincoln, upwards of twenty livings, which were in his sole gift as Dean, will fall, under the provisions of the last Ecclesiastical Com- missioners' Act, to the Bishops of the DinCeses in which they happen to be situated; and the value of the Deanery, which was very considerable, will also be diminished to the next holder in other ways. The result of the inquiries of the Commissioners of Chari- table Bequests in the Diocesan and Prerogative Court, as connected with the county Kerry, have extended to charitable legacies left so tar back as forty-five years ago, and, from the list sent by them to Dr. Egan, it would ap- pear that very large sums in abeyance for a considerable time are recoverable for Roman Catholic purposes off va- rious properties in the neighbourhood of Killamey.— Limerick Chronicle. CHURCH-RATE VICTORY AT WAKEFIELD.—After four- teen days hard struggle, and the most gross bribery and corruption on the part of the Dissenters, the rate has been carried. At the time of receiving our latest statements from Wakefield last week the anti-rate party had a large majority, which they used every means to maintain, but which was gradually diminished by the friends of the Church, until Monday night last, when the numbers were nearly equal, and the rate party had a great many votes in reserve, which they could bring forward when re- quired. Many of these were brought up on Tuesday mor- ning, when a majority was obtained in favour of the rate, and which was gradually increased during the day. It was arranged between the parties, that whenever twenty minutes should elapse without a vote being tendered the poll should he finally closed. From the scarcity of votes offered by the anti-rate party it was evident they had ex- hausted their strength, and that the polling must shortly terminate. Several parties were in attendance to vote for the rate; but, a majority having been obtained, it was unnecessary to take their votes, and between three and four o'clock, the anti-raters being unable to tender a vote, the 20 minutes elapsed, and the poll was declared finally closed. The proceedings were adjourned until evening, for the purpose of having the state of the poll officially de- clared. Between seven and eight o'clock at night, the declaration was made, when the numbers appeared as fol- lows;—For the rate, 2,376; against it, 2,361; majority for the rate, 15! This announcement was received with tremendous cheers by a large assembly; the bells of the parish Church rang a merry peal; and other demonstra- tions of victory were manifested. A scrutiny of votes was demanded, and protests were given in to the Vicar against the proceedings; but there is good reason for believing that the scrutiny will not be prosecuted.—Doncaster Chronicle.
