HOME AND FRIENDS.
HOME AND FRIENDS. Oh, there's a poifjer to make each hour As sweet as heaven design'd it Nor need we roam to bring it home, Though few there be that find it! We seek too high for things close by, And lose what nature found us; For life hath here no charm so dear As Home and Friends around us We oft destroy the present joy For future hopes-and praise them Whilst flowers as sweet bloom at our feet, If we'd but stoop to raise them For things afar still sweetest are When youth's bright spell hath bound us But soon we're taught that earth hath naught Like Home and Friends around us The friends that speed in time of need, When Hope's last reed is shaken, To show us still, that, come what will, We arc not quite forsaken: Though all were night, if but the light From Friendship's altar crown'd us, 'Twould prove the bliss of earth was this- Our Home and Friends around us
ltarÚtírø. "You didn't go to Cork to-day, Paddy 1" Och, no," said Paddy I heard a gentleman say there would be an eclipse on the moon here to-night, and I stayed to see it." A yoting man stepped into a book-store, and said he wanted to get A Young Jlan's Companion. "Well, sir," said the bookseller, c. here's my daughter." After a long deliberation the full bench of the Supreme Court have decided the fact that an old man, a widower, wishing to marry a young wife, is not of itself evidence of insanity.- New York Herald. WE HAVE SO SLCH FUN NOW-A-DAYS—JUNE 1776,-The Duchess of Chaters lately beat the Duke, her husband, in a foot-race of 500 yards, on their own terrace, for 200 guineas, p.p. N.B.—The Duchess was allowed to tie her coats above the knees of her drawers LORD'S ELLENBOKOUGH AND KENYON.—The forbearance shown by Lord Ellenborough to the repeated insults of Lord Kenyon, was always a matter of great surprise to the bar, as he was wanting neither in finnness nor in spirit; and as, at the same time, he held a high office, that made them more pointed, and more keenly felt. But it was found that he sub. dued his resentment from a proud feeling for the dignity of the Court, which he thought would be lowered in the eyes of the people by a personal altercation taking place between a judge on the bench and a member of the bar, But that he was not insensible of them may be collected from the following anecdote. He was opposed to Erskine in a case before the Court, in which the latter deeply interested himself, and spoke with considerable 1 warmth, in language not whol1y free from personal allusion. Erskine was always favourably heard by Lord Kenyon, and on this occasion even with partiality. By two happy lines from Virgil, he showed how little he dreaded the power of his adver- sary, and how much the hostility of the judge. Turning to Erskine, he broke out in his usual manly tone— Non me tua fervida terrent Dicta, ferox Dii me terrent et Jupiter hostis." He paused at the ferox, with his eyes fixed on Lord Kenyon, and his right hand stretched towards the Bench. He pronounced with the strongest emphasis, Dii, me terrent et Jupiter hostis. ROMANCE OF REAL LIFE.—There is quite a little romance connected with a building in Genoa. It was formerly erected and owned by a wealthy man, who was in the habit of visiting a beautiful peasant girl in the neighbourhood. Pleased with his attention, she cast off, as ladies are very apt to do, the rustic lover she had before encouraged. But although her new admirer was frequent and steady in his visits, he never mentioned the subject of matrimony. Things went on this way for three years, till one night the gentleman was startled, as he was about leaving the house, by the abrupt entrance of the two brothers of the innamarata, demanding that he should immediately marry their sister. They told him that he had visited her for three years, thus keeping away other suitors, and destroying all hopes of their sister's marriage except with him; three years were quite long enough for him to make up his mind in, and as he had not done it, they had concluded to do it for him, .This was bringing things to a focus he had not anticipated. For a man of wealth and station to marry a poor peasant girl, merely because he condescended to be smitten by her beauty, was something more than a joke yet he saw at a glance that there was more meant by those brothers' speech than met the ear—in short, that his choice was to be a marriage or stiletto through his heart, This was reducing things to the simplest terms; rather too simple for the wealthy admirer. The trembling, weeping girl, the boltf reckless brothers, and the embarrassed gentleman, must have formed a capital group in a peasant's cottage. At length Signor —— attempted to com- promise the matter by saying that then was not the time, nor there the place, to celebrate such a ceremony besides, there was no priest, and the proper way would be to talk over the tlUbject together in the morning. One of the brothers leaned back, and rapped slightly on a side door; it opened, and a priest, with his noiseless cat-like tread, entered the circle. •' Here is a priest," said the brothers. There was a short interval of silence, when Signor made a slight movement towards the door. Two daggers instantly gleamed before him. He saw it was all over with him-that the three years of courtship were about to amount to something after aU-and so yielded with as good grace as possible, and the nuptials were }Jerwrmed, Like a man of sense, he immediately placed his wife in a convent to be educated, while he, in the meantime, bought a title. Years passed by, and the ignorant peasant girl emerged into the fashionable world an accomplished woman. She is now a widow, and is called the beautiful Countess of —Headleys's Letters/rom Italy,
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES.
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. MHS, CAUDLE IIAS DISCOVERED THAT CAUDLE IS A RAILWAY DIRECTOR. When I took up the paper to-day, Caudle, you might have knocked me down with a leather! Now, don't be a hypocrite jou know what's the matter. And when you haven't a bed to lie upon, and are brought to sleep upon the coal-sacks-and then I can. tell you, Mr. Caudle, you may sleep by yourself— then you'll know what's the matter. Now, I've seen your name, and don't deny it. Yes,—the Eel-Pie Island Railway—and among the Directors, Job Caudle, Esq., of the Turtledovery, and —no, I won't be quiet. It isn't often—goodness knows !—that I speak; but seeing what I do, I won't be silent. What do I tee ? Why, there, Mr. Caudle, at the foot of the bed, I see all the blessed chilùren ill tatters-I see you in a gaol, and the carpets hung uut at the windows. And now 1 know what you talk in your sleep about a broad and narrow guage I couldn't think what was on your mind,— but now it's out. Ha Mr. Caudle, there's something about a broad and narrow way that I wish you'd remember—but you've turned quite a heathen yes, you think of nothing but money now, Don't I like money ? To be sure I do; but then I like it when I'm certain of it; no risks for me, Yes, it's all very well to talk about fortunes made in no time they are like shirts made in no ten to one if they hang long together. And now it's plain enough why you can't eat or drink, or sleep, or do anything. Your mind's cut up into railways; for you shan't make me believe the Eel-Pie Island's the only one. Ch no! I can see by the looks of you. Why, in a little time, if you haven't as many lines in your face as there are lines laid down Every one of your features seem cut up,-and all seem travelling from one to another. Six months ago, Caudle, you hadn't a wrinkle yes, you'd a cheek as smooth as any china, and now your face is like the map of England. At your time of life, too You, who were for always going small and sure You to make head-and-tails of your money in this way It's that stockbroker's dog at Flam Cottage—he's bitten you, I'm sure of it. You're not fit to manage your own property now and I should only be acting the part of a good wife, if I were to call in the mad-doctors. Well, I shall never know rest any more now, There won't be a soul knocking at the door after this, that I shan't think its the man coming to take possession. 'Twill be something for the Chalkpits to laugh at when we're sold up. I think I see'em here, bidding for all our little articles of bigotry and virtue, and-what are you laughing atl They are not bigotry and virtue: but bijouterie and vertu? It's all the same: only you're never so happy as when you're taking me up. If I can tell what's come to the world, I'm a sinner! Every- body's for turning their farthings into double sovereigns and cheating their neighbours of the balance. And you, too— you're beside yourself, Caudle,—I'm sure of it. I've watched you when you thought me fast asleep. And then you've lain, and whispered and whispered, and then hugged yourself, and laughed at the bed-posts, as if you'd seen'em turned to sove- reign gold. I do believe that you sometimes think the patch- work quilt is made of thousand pound bank-notes. Well, wheij we're brought to the Union, then you'll find out your mistake. But it will be a poor satisfaction for me every night to tell you of it. What, Mr. Caudle They won't let me teil you of it? And you call that 'some comfort?' And after the wife I've been to you But now I recollect. I think I've heard you praise that Union before; though, like a fond fool as I've always been, I never once suspected the reason of it. And now, of course, day and night you'll never be at home ? No, you'll live and sleep at Eel-Pie Island 1 shall be left alone with nothing but my thoughts, thinking when the broker will come, and ).ou'l1 be wilh your brother directors. I may slave and I may toil to save sixpences and you'll be throwing away hundreds. And then the'expensive tastes you've got! Nothing good enough for you BOw, I'm sure JOU sometimes think yourself King Solomon. But that comes of making money—if, indeed, you have made any—without earning it. No: 1 don't talk nonsense people can make money without earning it. And when they do, why it's like taking a lot of spirits at one draught; it gets into your head, and they don't know what they're about. And you're in that state now. Mr. Caudle I'm lure of it, by the way of you. There's a drunkenness of the pocket as well as of the stomach,—and you're in that condi- tion at this very moment. Not that I should so much mind—that is, if you have made money-if ^u'd stop at the Eel-Pie line. But I know what these things are they're like treacle to flies: when men are well in 'em they can't get out of 'em out they do, it's often without a feather to fly with. No if you ve really made money by the Eel-Pie line, and will give it to me to take care of for the dear children, why, perhaps, love, I H say no more of the matter. What! Nonsense? Yes, of course, I never ask you for money, but that's the word. And now, catch you stopping at the Eel-Pie line Oh no, I know your aggravating spirit. In a day or two I shall see another fine flourish in the paper, with a proposal for a branch from Eel-Pie Island to Chelsea Bun-house. Give you a mile of rail, and—I know you men,—you'll take a hundred. Well, if it didn't make me quiver to read that stuff in the paper,—and your name to it! But I suppose it was Mr. Prettyman's work; for his proolous name's amgng'em. How you tell the people that eel riet are now become an essential element of civilisa- tion'—I learn't all the words by heart, that I might say'em to you-—' that the Eastern population of London are cut off from the blessings of such a necessary, and that by means of the projected line eel-pies will be brought home to the business and bosoms of llatcliffe-highway and the adjacent dependencies.' Well, when you men—lords of the creation, as you call your- selves—do get together to make up a company, or anything of the sort,—Is there any story book can come up to you ? And 10 you look solemnly in one another s faces, and never so much a. moving the corners of your mouths, pick one another's pockets. N,): I'm not using hard words, Mr. Caudle, but only the words that's proper. T, And this I must say. Whatever you're got, I m none the better for it. You never gave me any of your Eel-pie sharel. What do you say? You will give me someT Not i-i" nave nothing to d'o with any wickedness of the kind. If, Hke any other husband, you choose to throw a heap of money into my lap—what ? You'll think of it? When the Ecl-Pwsgoup. Then I know what they're worth—they'll never fetch a farthing.

MEMORANDA By Mr. S. D. Rogers, Nantyglo, Monmouthshire, rela- tive to a Magnificent Toll-free Stone Bridge, proposed more than twenty years ago, to be erected across the month of the river Severn, between the New and Black rock Passages, and entirely from the money-proceeds of a New and Chartered System of Banking, that would not oppose any existing Banking Establishment, nor put any individual or party to the slightest expense whatever, but on the contrary, produce a very large and permanent Revenue to the State, and give good and profitable em- ployment to many thousands of people. I.-DIM ENSIOSS OF THE BRIDGE, &C. Total length of the Bridge and its approaches, about 6 miles. Length over the water at high tide, 8004. feet. Length of the Southern approach, about 3 miles of the Northern, half a mile. Lighthouse on the centre of the bridge, 100 feet high, or about 220 feet above the level of high water at spring tides. Water way, 6804 feet. Depth of water at spring tide, 60 feet. Present breadth of the Shoots at low water, 600 feet. Breadth of New Water-way at the same level of tide, 2200 feet. Perpendicular fall of water at the Shoots, at three-quarters ebb tide, about 4 feet. Breadth of the bridge, 132 feet. Twenty-one cycloidal or segmental arches, each of 324 feet span. Twenty piers, with semi-circular ends, each of them 60 feet thick, cased in moveable cast-iron plates. Two hutments, 120 feet thick, and 212 feet in breadth. The approaches may be on arches, or earthen embankments between walls, at the pleasure of the engineers or architects and they need not be confined to a right line with the bridge, but may go off at any curve most convenient for the railroads. The public carriage-road to be separated from the railroad, throughout the entire length of the bridge and its abutments, by a double line of shops, bazaais, houses, offices, &c., and an arcade, or footpath, ten feet wide, in the centre by such arrangement there need be no apprehension of danger from horses taking fright from the noise, fire, and motion of the railway trains. The piers and butments may, abovlI high-water mark, be advantageously converted into dwellings, bazaars, exhibition rooms, offices, shops, &C., and the central line of shops and arcade to have a flat roof with parapets or side-railings, so as to form a most delightful promenade in fine weather. There to be organised an efficient police establishment for keeping the bridge aud its appendages duly cleansed, watered, lighted, and repaired; and also to prevent irregularities of all kinds, and report the state of all things under its charge, daily, to the committee specially appointed to receive the same, this necessary police force to be maintained by the rents arising from the houses, shops, offices, &c., above alluded to, but if the amount of such rents should be inadequate for the purpose, a small rate should be levied upon those coun- ties most benefitted by the erection in question, or a small toll to be fixed upon the traffic of the same. Steam-tugs to be provided to assist, when necessary, heavy vessels in passing to and fro through the arches of the bridge, both day and night, and free of expense. '2.—ROUGH ESTIMATE or. MATERIUS REQUIRED. Twenty piers, 32.000 tons of stone each. 640,000 tons. Two abutments, 200,000 tons of each 400,000 Eleven thousand feet of arching, &c., 200 tons of stone per foot run 2,200,000 Copings, parapets, shops, bazaars, lighthouse, &c 360,000 Extra stone for foundation, embankments, &c. 400,000 Total for the bridge, &c 4,00^,000 The stone requisite for the approaches cannot be estimated until it be determined how far the public carriage road may be on a level with the railway but on the lowest computation it is imagined there would be required full two million of tons; but the quantity of timber for centreing, &c., and the cast and wrought iron, copper, lead, and other metals, together with mason work, carpentry, plumbing, and all other neces- sary or desirable labour and materials may be fairly said to be beyond all present calculation. At the abutments of the bridge, (whereon splendid monu- ments should be erected in memory of those public spirited persons who may become active patrons of the proposed under- taking), it would be very desirable to form embankments, both above and below the bridge, in total length seven miles; and there would be required several docks, slips, pills, wharfs, and basins, as well for the convenience of the operatives whilst building the bridge, as for the permanent and free use of the public; by the above extent of embankments there would be about 2000 acres of land saved from the encroachments of the sea; but if the embankments were continued down to Portshead point on the south, leaving a good and convenient entrance into the Bristol river, and to Goideliff or Newport river's mouth, on the north side of the Channel, so as to enclose nearly all the ground that becomes dry at low water, and which would require 18 or 20 miles of walling, exclusive of pills, docks, wharfs, &c., there would then be full 20,000 acres of laud rescued from the sea and which undertaking the located people of the Depots mentioned in the Samaritan Tracts and papers before alluded to, would, upon an extension of the Charter, engage to accomplish, free of expense to any party whatever; and also, if desirable clear the Bristol Channel and the Severn of many other serious impediments to their safe and easy navigation. The total cost of the bridge and its approaches, the seven miles of embankments, and all necessary bouses, offices, build- ings, pills, docks, wharfs, &c., will be at least ten millions sterling; and the additional 18 or 20 miles of embankments would cost full ten nllllions more; the whole of which amount of money may be raised in the most satisfactory manner to the public, by means of the New System of Banking, in less than ten years, and ac the same time there would be contri- buted to her Majesty's exchequer, a sum equal to at least five millions more this assertion I am prepared to prove, and that beyond all rational contradiction. 3.—GENERAL MEMORANDA. Spring tides rise about 52 feet at the Shoots, (the site of the proposed bridge,) the water then being over Groggy, and Ladybeach—32 feet over Bull-rock and Bed win sands—26 feet, and over English Lake—33 feet; now if we estimate the average level of the English Stones, (which project nearly across the Severn at the point where it is proposed to lay dowu the bridge) to be only 9 feet above the present level of low water at the tail of the Shoots, and the area oue mile and one-third square, to clear away the entire of that impedi- ment would yield full 16 millions of cubic yards of materials, principally stone fit for building purposes, viz.—an area of 5i millions of square yards, and 9 feet thick; which, with granite facings, would afford nearly stone enough for the bridge, its approaches, and embankments, and that in a man- ner upon the very spot where it is required for use but if more stone should be wanted than could be conveniently raised on the spot alluded to, the rocks in the neighbourhood of Portskewitt would afford an inexhaustible supply that may be quarried and conveyed to its destination on the most advantageous terms. Charstone, Ladybeach, Gruggy, and the Shoots, would on the completion of the bridge, all be enclosed within the Monmouth- shire embankments, and the English Stones & Bull-rock wou:d be all cleared away, consequently there would be no impedi- ment to an open run of tide a mile and a half wide, and from 40 to 60 feet deep which, with a little improvement at Aust Passage, would greatly assist vessels of all kinds in their navigation of both the Severn and the Wye. and probably cause a flow of tide several miles up those rivers higher than usual, a circumstance highly favourable to the navigation of the Severn in particular hence the probability of Worcester becoming a Seaport is not so Utopian as some people at present would imagine. The bridge and its approaches may be completed in about four or five years by the people of thirty Depots or Samaria*, viz.:—1000 persons from each depot, or a total of 30,000 operatives,* which number of depots may be advantageously and prosperously planted in two years; and by an extension of the time of the Charter before alluded to. 10,000 men may afterwards be constantly employed for several years, in im- proving the Navigation of the Severn, Wye, and Avon, and the Bristol Channel generally, and all withmt any expense whatever to the country the operatives so employed being in a state of necessary preparation for removal to the contem plated new colonies in Canada, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Africa, South America, Australia, or other approved sites. The proposed Depots should be completely encircled by walls or railings, so that no trespass or aunoyance may be experienced by persons occupying farms, mansions, &c., near the said establishments; and they should, if any way possible, be so contrived as to void being intersected by roads or paths. In an attempt made a few years ago to obtain an Act of Par- liament for apportioning the toresc of Dean, in Gloucester- shire, into parishes, it was proposed that 1600 acres of land should be aliotted towards the maintenance of the poor of the •aid forest; now could not this, or an equivalent quantity of other Una, be appropriated for Depots or Samarias, for the reception, employment, and improvement of all the poor of the county in question, on the principle stated in the pamph- let above-mentioned ? There are lauds on the banks of the Severn that may, no doubt, be readily exchanged for the 1(>00 acres above alluded to. Mr. Rogers then proceeds to show how his plan may be made available for railroads. "See the pamphlet entitled Samarias, or Working Benefit Societiespublished by Mr. Strange, Paternoster How, London.
tthe Churctt. m
tthe Churctt. m The Bishop of Exeter is at issue with the Vestry of St. Andrew's, Plymouth. The churchwardens, with the concutrence of the Rev. John Hatchard, the vicar, and ofttte parishioners, have reverted to an ancient custom, for which they allege a prescriptive right, of raising money for the repair and use of the church by means of a pew-rent. The bishop declares such a practice to be an illegal abuse, and he has absolutely prohibited it. At a meeting of the vestry, on Tuesday week, the vicar presiding, a resolution was adopted all but unanimously, strongly deprecating the course taken by the Bishop. THE DEAN OF YORK AND TRACTA.RIANTSM.-On Sunday, the Very Rev. the Dean of York made the following observations on Tractarianism in his sermon at the cathedral:—" Man constantly seeks, particularly in early life, for notoriety-to be looked at—to be pointed out—to be talked of: these are the too frequent objects, and the paramount objects of young ambition. In pur. suit of such notoriety, how many evils have been inflicted on public and private life! How has even the Church of Christ been torn and rended by such low vanity operating on her sacred ministers 1 To read the prayers as others read them, and as they have been read for centuries, excites no observation. To preach as others preach, produces no comment. To be notorious and observed, there must be some change-some innovation. Hence are the vestments of the clergy different in the same town. Hence the minister is induced to turn about in some unwonted manner. Hence bows and genu- flexions before the communion table, inducing the con- gregation to fuppose that when two or three are gathered together the Lord is not in the midst of them, but is confined within the rails that circle the table. The minister does not really in his heart believe that his doctrine will be more efficacious or more orthodox when he is clothed in white than when he is clothed in black. He does not really believe that the universal Spirit can be contained within a few yards of space. lie does not probably intend to draw his flock, as they suppose, into the trammels of along-rejected superstition. He has no such object in view. His desire is only to attract the eyes of his fellow-men—he wishes only to be talked of,—a i9TV wworthy ambition, which would but excite a smile, If it did not demand frown." PAYMENT OF PARISH CLERKS.—The Rev. W. A. Morgan, perpetual Curate of the parish of Tresmere, near Launceston, is about to petition parliament, under these circumstances:—He has been the perpetual curate of Tresmere for more than twenty-four years, and during such period there has been annually paid by the parish to the clerk of the parish a salary out of the church-rate this has been the custom of the said parish from time immemorial. The churchwardens now refuse to make a church-rate, and the clerk of the said parish refuses to perform, and, in fact, does not perform the duties of clerk, and the responses in the various services of the church in the said parish are not now read, nor have they been read since Sunday, the 24th day of August last. Mr. Morgan is informed that there is no law in existence by which parish clerks can enforce payment for the performance of their duties where no land or other property is apportioned for such purpose and he hopes the House will take his petition into consideration, and by legislative enactment or otherwise, apply some remedy.
HtftceUaneotiff* VALUE OF ENGINEERS.—We hear that the price of engineers has so advanced in the market that Sir John Rennie is to have jEt,000 per week for the survey of a new line in the north. TAUNTON.—A match came off last week between Captain Price and — Moore, Esq., to leap a horse over the four turnpike gates within a given time. The horse unfortunately struck his leg in the first gate, but cleared the second in good style on approaching the third gate he refused to run, and Captain Price paid the bet, which was £20.-Sherborne Journal. The disease that has appeared in the potatoes exhibits itself in America as well as Europe but, while every post seems to announce the failure of the crop in some fresh region, suggestions for remedying or palliating the evil are almost equally abundant. Three of the superior planets of the solar system now rise between the hours of seven and ten, and appear in nearly the same quarter of the heavens. Saturn, the least bright, is in the South, at an altitude of about 20 degrees, and appears with his ring very clearly developed in a telescope magnifying 80 times two of his moons are also unusually visible. Mars, now very brilliant, is south east of the former, and about the same elevation his disc in the telescope is nearly as large as Jupiter, and has a large central mark upon it. The planet Jupiter is to the east of the two former, and his moons may be seen with a glass of very moderate power two large belts cross his disc about the centre, and it is seldom that the planet is seen without them, although they undergo changes. M ESMERISM.—A girl, named Mary Farriss, aged 14, an inmate of the Cork workhouse for two years, was pre- sented to the board on Wednesday. It appeared she had been deaf for four years, and incapable of receiving instruction in the school of the house, owing to the in- firmity. She was mesmerised last week, and to the sur- prise of all present, during the sleep, answered questions asked in the usual tone of voice. To-day she has replied to questions put in a whisper.—Cork Constitution. RECEIPT FOR LINING OLD PICTURES.—To fasten the canvasses together in lining old pictures, equal quantities of cobbler's paste and glue, applied hot, may be used a few drops of creosote should be added, to prevent vegeta- tion.—The Builder. A dreadful event occurred, two days ago. between Belluno and Feltre. Two hundred Italian soldiers were manceuvering under the command of an Austrian officer, who ordered them to cross a ruinous bridge, the passage of which had been forbidden by the local authorities on account of the danger. The bridge gave way, with the two hundred men upon it; and they fell into the river and were drowned. The officer being in advance, had reached the other side before the bridge fell in.—Letter from Venice (September 4th) in the Nouvelliste of Mar- seilles. The following horrible event occurred a day or two since. Two men who were at work in a field near Bou- logne, in the environs of Paris, with a young girl, took it into their heads to amnse themselves by tickling her feet as she lay upon the grass. The girl laughed heartily for a time, but convulsive moverftents of the chest suc- ceeded. She rose from the ground, but immediately fell again, and expired.—Galignani's Messenger. PROOF OF IDENTITY.—-Those who have attended in London for the purpose of signing the Parliamentary contract of railway companies, are aware that some evi- dence that they really are the persons they profess to be is required. A little time since the identity of a gentle- man from Banbury being questioned, he, not having about him such documents as in other cases had been sa- tisfactory, at length, irritated by the expressed doubt, offered, as a last resort, to produce the tail of his shirt, on which his name at full length might be read. THE ROYAL MATCH-MAKER.—With or without cause, Louis Philippe has got the character of a managing papa— one who is constantly manceuvering to make good mar- riages for his sons and daughters. There is probably some truth in the imputation. He is among royal fami- lies as a new coronet among our nobility he cannot feel comfortable and at home in the titled circle till intermar- riages make him confident that he is really one of them. Something of the joy of the parvenu, favoured with a visit en famille from one of the old peerage, may mingle with the natuial politeness and sociability of the King of the French in his warm receptions of our Queen—the only crowned head of real old family by whom he has as yet been tutoye. A similar impulse made Napoleon anxious to become the son-in-law of the Emperor of Austria. Better form such connexions in the persons of one's descendants, like Louis Philippe, than divorce a wife to contract one in person, as Napoleon did. But the King of the French has not the same temptation as the Emperor had for he is himseif rather too old to marry, and Napoleon was childless. If Louis Philippe looks for any more important gain from these intermar- riages than to be placed on a footing of perfect social equality and intimacy with monarchs who have been born to a crown, the experience of Napoleon might warn him of his mistake. Dynasties never have been strengthened by marriages. The Emperor of Austria was less in- dined to spare his son-in-law than the Emperor of Russia. Family ties are of little influence in the world of politics. Even were kings disposed to be influenced by them—which they rarely are—their subjects would not let them. If this reflection do not throlv cold water on the match-making propensities of the Kitigof the French, it may at least allay the apprehensions of English and other quidnuncs, who fancy he will marry England out of her foreign influence. If Louis Philippe has weight in Belgium, it is less owing to his influence over his son- in-law than to the existence of a strong French party; as is natural enough, in a country which borders upon France, and has no literary language but French. King Leopold's connexion with the Royal Family of France, by keeping alive the vigilance of the anti-French party, has a greater tendency to weaken the Gallican influence than to strengthen it. Brazil and France are more likely to quarrel about the dowry of Joinville's bride than to be united as one nation by her marriage to that princely buccaneer. So, should Louis Philippe succeed in mar- rying the sister of the Queen of Spain to his unmarried son, or contrive to effect his pis-aller match between that Princess and a Coburg cousin of his son-in-law of Bel- gium, even Lord Palmerston may keep his mind easy for the match will not so much frighten John Bull into recalling Lord Palmerston to Downing-street.—Spectator. The accounts both from the United States and Canada notice the fact of a good deal of speculation having been going on in flour, owing to the expected deficiency of the crops in England. Prices had advanced to some extent, and freights were also considerably higher. Whether, under all circumstances, these speculations will be profit- able, remains to be seen but it is probable, at any rate, that we shall have increased orders for manufactures sent over. The harvest both in the United States and the British Provinces was expected to be most abundant.— Globe. PRACTICAL INFLUENCE OF RACE IN THE SOCIAL ASPECT OF IRELAND.—" It is the nature of the men on the East coast of Ireland, by their activity, their enter- prise, their intelligence, and their industry, to rise to wealth and to prosperity—to push themselves—to accom- plish greatness. It is their history in every quarter of the known world where they have been placed. It is the nature of the men on the West coast to cling with strong affection and prejudice to old habits, totheirland, to their kindred. Enterprise is forced upon them they do not seek it as one of the pleasures of existence. The middle classes live by subletting and subletting, and again sub- letting the land at increased rentals. This is the extent of their enterprise. My letter is already too long, or I would quote several amusing instances of this. Th. poorer classes, who have to pay all these rentals, cling to the land and to one another. As they increase, they divide and subdivide the patch of land they possess; they submit to live on poorer and poorer food still they cling to the land and subdivide it with their children, till rent no longer exists, the land will not keep them, and all starve together. Their highest ambition and enter- prize is to obtain a blanket and shelter for Sally,' and potatoes for themselves and children. This was the positive fact at Taniwilly, near KiUybegs, in this county, on a property belonging to the Board of Education. The people being left to themselves, subdivided their land till they could pay no rent, and at length it would not keep them; and they were found a year ot two ago by the Poor-law Commissioners lying in their huts without food or clothes, all starving together in a most frightful state of destitution. There are numerous instances of the same result when the inhabitants of the West coast are left to themselves. Leave the people on the East coast to them- selves, and they are sure to prosper: they only want leaving alone, and they will fight their own way. Not so those of the West. Now, is it or is it not more states- manlike to face these facts, than to shirk them 1 By fac- ing them, we may hope to know how to apply help and guidance where they are needed. By shirking them, we have Ireland that mass of difficulties' which tt has always been. I am far from praising one race of people or blam- ing the other for that which is their nature, and which they cannot help. This is not the part either of honesty or wisdom. Knowing the qualities of the men on the Ealt, we may safely leave them to take care of themselves; they can run alone. It is the men on the West who, when we find them and ourselves no longer deceived by ill- judging friends, will require our aid, our instruction, our guidance, our example—who will require to be urged on, praised on, shamed on, led on, and, if necessary, forced on. Unfortunately for them, and for the country, the very opposite course has been taken—they have been oppressed, kept back, and left to themselves, and they starve."—By the Times' Commissioner, whose remedy is a legislative encouragement of twenty-one years leases. —The next letter is on the estates in Londonderry be- longing to the London Corporations; whose benevolent and liberal system of management is reflected in the tran- quillity and comparative prosperity of the district. We understand that Uie Government have di t rra'n d to materially increase ap present military force iu our North American colonies!—Chronicle. EXPECTED PANIC.—An outcry has been atf-mpted to he raised of an approaching panic. We hes'tate not to admit that speculation is being carried to too great a length, and we should he glad to see it curtailed within more reasonable limits; but from the best inquiries we have been able to make in the manufacturing districts everything is in a very healthy state, and there is at pre- sent no danger of a check. With this fact before us and good harvest we can see no cause for alarm.—Herepath's Journal. THE HARVEST.—Although the results are not yet authentically known, the fate of the harvest is now pretty well decided; and, balancing the fluctuating and contra- dictory reports, the most probable conclusion is, that although the harvest will not be so abundant as the last two, or as this once promised to be, it will not be alarm- ingly deficient. The potato-crop is abundant; and on the whole the quality of the roots appears to be good; but in many districts throughout Europe and America a peculiar disease has visited the flourishing plant, and spoiled a fine crop. An ingenious conjecture imputes the disease to too much animal manure the potato has, like all civilized creatures, (except the Irish, if they come under the term,) been diseased by over feeding. And the worst of it is, that the diseased particles are supposed to he highly deleterious to the human constitution. No doubt, many discreet families will suspend the use of po'atoes; and the price of corn is likely to he influenced hy the greater resort to bread and flour. Although therefore, there is not positively a deficient harvest, in the strongest sense of the term, there is enough of difficulty and doubt to give a new impulse to the Corn question next session.—Spectator. AIIERYSTWIFII. — MELANCHOLY BVENT. —It is our painful office to record the death of a fellow-creature who, there is every reason to believe, departed this life by his own voluntary agency. While we are penning this para- graph, a coroner's inquest is sitting upon the body of Mr. Graham, watchmaker, Market-street, next door to the Talbot Hotel, Aberystwitb. It appears that the deceased left his shop between 7 and 8 o'clock last Mon- day evening, telling his wife that he would return directly. This he did not do, and the next thing the poor woman saw of him was when he was brought back a corpse last Wednesday afternoon. The body was found in the river Rhydol, near Plascrug and from its appearance, it must have been in the water since Monday night. There were no marks of violence. The universal belief is that he threw himself into the river. His wife on Sunday found two packets of arsenic in his pocket, which it is supposed he intended to make use of himself, though he pretended to her that it was for rats. He was a hard- working and inoffensive man, and for some years past was a Teetotaller, but having unfortunately broken the pledge, he lived the last few months rather freely, and was ob- served to be constantly excited this, together with some trifling pecuniary difficulties, is supposed to have precipi- tated him to this rash and irrevocable act.—Welshman. DISCOVERY OK IRON MINES IN THE ROMAN STATES. —For some time past several experienced engineers have been making mineral researches throughout the Roman states, and their exploring has been crowned with success, as several very valuable iron mines have been discovered that had hitherto been hid to human sight. They are represented to have been of a very rich quality of ore, and will turn out highly advantageous to the speculators. There is very little doubt that gold, silver, iron, copper, lead, sulphur, and coal, exist to a great degree in this wealthy state but enslaved as the inhabitants are by the edicts of his highness the Pope, they have never devoted themselves to mineral operations, and contented them- selves in the tillage of their productive fields, the cultiva- tion of the vine. olive, and mulberry tree, for the propa- gation of the silk-worm. The rapid march of intellect within the last half century throughout the whole of Italy is the forerunner to a new era, which is certain shortly to take place in the improvement of the industrious habits of the inhabitants of the Pope's states of Rome, who have hitherto been kept in a state of most perfect ignorance by the priesthood. Although his Highness has strictly pro- hibited the introduction of railways in any part of his territory, as injurious to the interest of the tyrannic power of the church of Rome, by the propagation of the principles of Protestantism and knowledge among the people; he and all his cardinals see that the day is fast approaching when the fetters of ignorance will be thrown off by the degraded Romans, and the priesthood lose its absolutism. The introduction of railways into the Sardinian states from Turin, to join those of the King of Naples, and to Leg- horn, Genoa, Trieste, through the Lombardo-Venetian, or Austrian possessions, is a fatal specimen of the pro- gress that commerce and enterprise are making in the nineteenth century, all over, not only in Europe, includ- ing barbarous and despotic Russia, but the whole world, which will be the means of causing the downfall of the bigotted institutions that have existed in Italy, Spain, and Portugal, from the earliest days of Christianity, and be the great impetus to universal civilization and fraternity between nations from one end of the globe to The other, all of whom look up to the advancement now making. NEW OPERATION ON THE EYE.The late reports of the Paris Academy of Sciences mention some experiments in what the French call Kiratopiastic, which consists iu replacing a deceased cornea by a portion of the cornea taken from another individual, and which, in fact, is a kind of animal grafting. There was also read a com- munication from Dr. Plouviez, of Lille, in which he states that he recently performed the operation on a female, 23 years of age, and who became blind from the. small-pox at the age of three years. He removed the cornea, and substituted by suture that of a young dog, which he sacri- ficed for the purpose. The grafting process was entirely successful, but it does not appear that much benefit was derived from it. The girl does not see well enough to move about without a guide, and the only difference between her present state and that before the operation is, that she can now just distinguish night from day. BANK OF ENGLAND. — At the halt-yearly meeting of the proprietors, held on Thursday week, a resolution was carried unanimously, declaring a dividend of 3| per cent., and a sum of £ 15,353 14s. 8d, was carried to the rest account, which now amounts to f 3,094,379 lis. 4d. A considerable balance appears to the credit of the Govern- ment in the Bank statement, which will continue until the payment of the October dividnnjg, In the course of the meeting it transpired that the directors have had in contemplation the establishment of a brannhbunkatthe west end of town, but that, so far, nothing has been determined upon. This information has created an interest in the moneyed circles on the other side of Temple-bar, hut it is probably the great respectability and extensive wealth of.the bankers 111 that locality which has deterred the authorities of Threadneedie-street from carrying out their scheme ot settlor up a west-end branch for the present. DESTRUCTION BY FIRE OF A SUPPOSED SLAYER.-— Among the mass of miscellaneous gossip duly set forth in the morning papers we find, the lolloping curious ac- count:—The fate of the Ameracan steam-frigale Missouri [a ship belonging to the U.S., NavyJ will not soon be forgotten. There was something marvellous about it; something that set speculation, and even superstition at work. without, however, the smallest legitimate material to work upon. A noble war steamer, eclipsing any vessel of that class in the Britis'i Navy, and evidently intended to astonish the world, suddenly appears one Saturday af- ternoon at Gibraltar. She steers straight past some British vessels anchored at a sa'e distance from the shore, and drops her anchor so near, that, as she sheers in-sbore, she has not more than five feet under her bottom. The British spectators are seized with wonder at the size. the beauty, the armament, ant*' ahove all, at the daring of the stranger. Well might tbey be aghast at the spectacle of these rapid revolutions, performed within a bowsprit's length by a ship of nearly -2,000 tons, 250 feet long, with 350 men on board, carrying 28 enormous guns, and pierced for 44. They look and look again, and count her guus and admire her beautiful equipment, and are near enough to hear the conversation onboard. The Captain and chief officers land, and tto off to dinner at the Ame- rican Consul's. The British visiters go down to tea and have not finished their second cup, when they are called to the deck with the cry that The steamer's on fire! She is on fire; and after the preservation efthe crew, and every attempt to preserve the vessel by the crews of the sur- rounding British vessels, she is is utterly consumed, and before next morning lies at the bottom a shapeless mass of charred timbers and old iron. "People made their own comments when the account reached us at home. More was said than was ever likely to meet the sensitive Re- publican ear. Though too little for war, the vessel seemed too great for peace. It was at least a demonstration. Wherever she went, the Missouri was to advertise the world of what our respected relative across the Atlantic can do and will do on an emergency. Her destination was various. She was bound to Alexandria, and thence to China, with the American Plenipotentiary on board for the Celestial Court. She t<)Uc^ej Gibraltar, and it was said she was to touch at EDglan** a'so; and probably at a few other points of interest in the circuitous course from Gibraltar to Pekin. Humanity was prompted to lament a disaster which stopped so noble a messenger of civilization in the first stage of her career. Doubtless, she was designed to ditt'use the elements of social improvement wherever she touched the shore. Nay, it was positively stated that such was part of her mission. Still, an uu- accountable mystery hung over her destination and over her end. Why talk so big, when you mean only peace 1 Why negotiate a treaty with China, when the British Minister has already included tf^'y purchased by British arms for all the world ..As lor the strange catastrophe, it was whispered at the titue, without the smallest ground or circumstance ot credtt, that it was the crew who had burnt their -ressel. Anything is more cre- dible then the purely marveuous. A strange discovery has added to the materials ot speculation, without re- moving the general perplexity* Dead men tell no tales, at least they did not before the days of Herapath but foundered vessels are not so safe. The wreck and cargo of the Missouri are in the hands ot the divers. Day after day they are bringing up doubtless much that a British sailor will easily divine by the analogy of civilized navigation and warfare. But what does he imagine the divers are bringing up in great quantities day by day, and carrying off in cart-loads to their store' Slave-shackles of every strength and size for men and women, old and young. A correspondent of undoubted authority has sent us three specimens—a family group, for father, mother, and child. They are such as are used in the slave-trade, and are own brothers, as we can swear, to those found on board vessels engaged in traffic- Were the wreck to be judged by these alone, the divers might conclude the Missouri to be a gigantic slaver, designed to meet with the arguments of Lynch law the intricaces of the rIght of search. But, of course, the Missouri was not a slaver. So what mean these countless suits of iron 1" The Independence of Brussels asserts in the most po- sitive way that Prince Metternich has expressed an opinion that the religious movement in Germany will meet with no protection from the Sovereigns of the diiFerent States. The first run upon bankers took place in 1GG7, being in consequence of the panic caused by the Dutch fleet en- tering the Thames and destroying the ships at Sheerness and Chatham. Messrs. Child and Co.'s, Temple-Bar, is the oldest banking firm in London, and they still have their books of Charles the First's time including the private account of Oliver Cromwell, who banked with them. A letter from Blois states that a few days back some of the sleepers near the bridge of Claudiere were de- signedly removed from the railroad, and when a locomotive catne up, bringing sand, it ran of fthe rails. A violent shock ensued, and three men were thrown off it, one of whom was badly hurt in the back. A reward of 1,000 fr. has been offered for the discovery of the perpetrators ot this piece of mischief. — Galignani.

The police of Berlin have issued an ordonnance, en- joining the keepers of coffee-houses, and other p!aces of public entertainment, under penalty of being deprived of their licenses, to take care that there be no discussions on religion or politics in their establishments. Of 380 geese driven by their owner last week towards Hexham market about 300 died without reaching their destination, in consequence of their having been permitted to drink freely at a stream leading from Fallowfield Smelt-mills to the Tyne, the water of which was probably strongly impregnated with lead. TIIB IRON TRADE IN SCOTLAND.—The Glasgow pig-iron trade is rapidly on the advance, and begins to excite the attention of dealers. On Monday and Tuesday last, it appears, there was a considerable business doing in the "good auld city," and a parcel of 1000 tons was pur- chased at the rate of 80s., not cash. It is now a favourite article for speculators dealing in, and is becoming daily more so, which at present operates in its maintaining liiglier priccs in proportion to wrought iron. It is possible that a small portion could be had at 78s., net cash hut the regular quotation may be called 79s., net—as there are few who like to make extensive purchases at 80s. On the whole, however, the iron trade in Scotland is daily improving, and this will be a profitable season for masters, as prices are looking up and the demands are on a large scale so that all hands are busily at work.— Mining .Ju Ilrnal.
.r. FARM DRAINING. At the last monthly meeting of the Cardiff Farmers' Club, Mr. David, the president, called the attention of the members present to an Essay on Draining Tiles, which was read by Mr. Maughan at a recent meeting of the Stewponey Farmers' Club. Mr. Maughan com- menced by reviewing the various plans of constructing kilns, and then gave his plan of construction, which appeared to be the most economical as well as the most efficient. He then entered upon calculations which had reference to the cost of procuring tiles—the different forms in use. and then proceeded as follows to speak of the good effects produced by draining, and to comment upon the different systems adopted :— Of the efficacy of the piocs there is not the least roornfor doubt; some years of experience in other countics, as Kent, Sussex, Essex, and Suffolk, have demonstrated their efficip.ncy.. In the 'course of last winter I drained some lands in the occu- pation of Mrs. Russell, at the Straits, near Askew Brirlpe, about a mile from Himley, and I laid the drains (three feet depp) alternately with one Inch pipes, two inch pipes, and with tiles and soles. The main or carrier diain has been left open, that the neighbours might observe, if tbey thought pro- per, the aClion of the different drains. The one incll pipes have discharged after heavy rains as freely as the others. I purpose leaving the main drain open for some little time to come, and I hope that parlles in the nei!1;hbourhood, both farmers and tile makers, who have any prejudice against pipes. wIll take occaslOu to observe the action of those drains "fter a tall of rain. I was myself at first rather distrustful of the one inch pipps; I never doubted their sufficiency to carry off the water required of them in ordinary frequent or furrow draiA- irJg; hilt I was apprehensive of displacement at the ends, and consequently of obstruction. If care be taken in the laying of the one inch pipes, experience ha" assnred us that they are in all respects efficacious. To make certainty, how- ever, doubly slIre: and to guard against any displacement at the ends, I have adopted and shall continue the plan, of lay. ing the ("ud of the otle inct. pipe into the end of Ihc two inch pipe, or rather of laying the pipes end to end, with a collar M before described, which is perhaps the betler plan; and as to the sufficiency and efficacy of drains so constructed for surface draullng in stiff clay soils, I do not entertain any doubt \\Ihatever. With men who hllve familiarised themselves to the use ef the large heavy draining tile, there wiJ1 no doubt lurk for 1\ time to come a distrust of the etllcacy of these pipes of small diameter. Prejudices are not all at once sltrmonn' cd. I put however, to the consideration of the most prejudiced of those who now hear me whether, if they will doubt the efficacy of one pipe of onp. inch in diameter, they can entertain any douht of the efficacy of a pipe two inches in diameter; or, better sdll, of two pipes of oue inch in diameter laid in the same drain sic1e by sMe—the junctions ,1f the one line of pipé3 being made to lie h"lf way down the lengths of the pipes in the other and parallel line ? In (he doctrine of chances, re- mite, indeed, mnst be the prJbabiJity of the two orifices or tubes becoming obstructed Even with these double line of pipes laid in each drain, the saving to he effected in the exp mse of drainage is most iinpottant, as compared with that ineurred by the use of tiles and soles, whether large or 8111 ill. It is hardlv pflssible to over-estimate the impnrtance of bringing down tiiecost of drainage from £ 8, £ 10, aud £ 12 per acre to .£:3 0,. £4, The cost of 1111 effective, permanent, and extensive drainage, Huder the old system, was wont to daunt both landlords anil tenants. Few men had courage to face it. It was indeed a serious matter to undertake •, and hence it is that so many thousands, aye, millions, of acre?, have never yet been subjected to I hose* ameliorations of which drainage must unquestionably be the foreruuner. ttwiiiheobserved that it is in the cost of production, and inthccost of carriage, that the swing under the pipe system arises. The cost of labour remains as before, or nearly EO j indeed, in many soils, entirely 50. f' nm experience & observation, I am fully convinced that a great majority uf d rai ;ers are cutting theirdrdins much too shal- low. I advise men who have any itoubt upon the subject, and who consider twenty and twenty-fonr inches sufficient, to try in the same field depths of two feet, three feet, and four feet, and to leave their mains or carriers (where practicable) open, and to observe closely the working of the. different drains, and the clf. ct of the drainage upon the condition of the laod. The experiment is easily made, and the subject is most important. ft might also be suggested to gentlemen who are about to drain their estates in different aud dis'ant situations, to pause in some instances before they incur the expense of erccltllg tileries of their own, because a tilery can seldom he placed upon a large estate within a convenient distance of all the tenantry, and the carnage is rendered onerous to many. If there be existing tileries in the country, and the proprietors of them reasonable ri.en, a landowner possessing a ponable pipe machine might have it shifted from ti.ery to tilery, the proprietor to be paid a proper consideration for making and bumiug any given number of pipes or other goods By ar- rang.on nt, the man rendered by practice expert in the mc of the machine might travel along with it. Some of the pipe machines are now so portable that they can be placed in a cart, and conveyed with perfect ease. FLOWER GARDEN AND SHRUBBERIES.—Ten-weeks Stocks sown when recommended some time ago. should now be potted otf and placed in a shady situation for a few days, and then exposed until they are stored away for the winter. Cuttings of China ffoses that are rooted should be planted out m the reserve garden, or potted otf. Ctipandfrf-shtay Box edging. Gather all seeds as they ripen, partic ilary the cones ot Abies and Piceas, as a few hot days at this season opens them, and the least wind shakes out the seed. riants in beds that are constautlv overgrowing Box or other edgings, should be cut back for cuttings, or taken to the rubbish yard. Pits and Frames.—Take particular care during the present damp weather not to water cuttings too freely, unless they are very dry; no shading will be required, but give air every morning. Continue potting* off the most forward struck cuttings, and till the pots agttin with choice or scarce kinds. FLORISTS' FLOWERS.— Tulips* — From information received from various quarters, much business has been done in these favourite flowers, and we anticipate, in consequence, strong competition throughout ihj floral world during the next blooming season. As advised last week, purchasers should lose no time in making the desired acquisitions many north and south country flowers, valuable additions to even the most select beds, may be obtained now at moderate prices. Carnations and Picoti es.—Where additions to collections are required, this is a good time to get them in; the amateur should bear in mind that early potting, to insure the plants being well established before winter, isindispensabte for their perfect preservation and health. In potting off rooted layers, the pots must be well drained, and the compost as simple as possible it is advisable to have the sod in which they are wintered rather poor than otherwise. Dahllus are now receiving their share of the florists care, aud where attention has been paid to the dlreCilOns given in the Chromclet we doubt not the result has been satisfactory these attentions ought not, however, to slacken, as the bloom will probably be prolonged to a later period than usual this year. Duck off all malformed lyids, and support side branches with small stakes, and dfligently examine the traps for earwigs, &c.&c. Pillk alld Pansy Beds must be kept constantly free from weeds, by careful hand-pickiug, &c. &c.; and a watchful eye must be had to all seedlings which are pricked out, fastening those dragged from the giotind by worms, &c. HARDY FRUtT AND KITCHEN GARDEN.—The propriety of cutting off the leaves of Strawberry plants has been frequently questioned. The runners should be ail cleared away, but the foliage should be allowed to remain to decay and form manure. Mont of the varieties have been obtained from species originally natives of America, and consequently well adapted for pushmg through the mass of foliage with which they must have been annually covered in that wooded country, in addition to that of their own decay. If au old plant be taken up, it will be observed that the lower portion ot the roots has a tendency to die off; but divest the stem of some of the lower leaves, and it will be seen that fresh spongioles are forming higher up the stem, ready to push in any accu- mulation of decayed foliage or other congenial substance. In some cases Strawberries produce a superabundance of foiiage and but little fruit; either fresh plantations should be made, or the old should be thim\e<l into patches not less than two feet apart. Kitchen Garden.—The taking up of the Potato crop will require to be done with more than usual care. Separation must be made of the perfectly sound, the doubtful, and the bad. The former ifcay be immediately pitted in narrow ridges, and secured by soil or turf from the access of frost and Wet. Those that are doubtful had better be laid wherethcycanbereadityiuspeeted. The effect of washing them with lime-water should be tried. Prick out Cauliflower plants; draw earth as support to the stems of Broccoli; expose the fruit of Tomatoes to the suu,

They adapt themselves over the most tender gums, or remaining stumps, without causing the least pain, rendering the operation of extracting quite unnecess-iry. They are so fixed as to fasten any loose teeth where the gums have shrunk from th use of calomel or other causes. Tiiey also beg to invite those not liking to un- dergo any p4ir.fnl operation, as practised by most members of the profession, to inspect their painless yet etfective system and in order that their improvements may he within reach of the most economical, they will continue the same moderate charges.

Sydenham's ikntibiiious Aperient Family Pill of Health, For both Seres, entirely Vegetable, prepared from the Prescrip- tion of that eminent Physician, I-)i-. S YD P' ,VI-IA ill, who was justly styled the "other of Modern Medicine." A MOST valuable remedy for Bilious and Liver Com- plaints, Indigestion, Head-Ache, Giddiness, F_.03s of A • .ietite. Flatulency, Gout, Rheumatism, Heartburn Spasms i- -vn ess of Spirits, Costiveness, &e. Thes celebrated FAMILY I'IU.S have been faithfully dis- pensed r-y tie present Proprietor for more than 30 years, and have obtained from all grades of the community a character and reputation which no medicine of a similar nature has ftitherto acquired. Dr. SYDENHAM'S PILLS being a mist happy combination of vegetable matter, and not contain- ing any mercurial preparation, require neither confinement nor alteration in diet during their use. Moderate exercise ID- creasestheir good effects. They may be taken at any time when the bowels are costive and uneasy; and Sydenham's Pills should be taken tiy persons of all ages, as they assist digestion, correct excesses of the table, give a healthy action and tone to the stomach, remove all co i.phiitits to which the digestive organs are subject, and will lead ;o health and cheer- ful old age. Families and the Proprietors of Boarding Scboo's should never be without an adequ/lte supply of this admirable Family Medicine, as SYDKNH AM'S t'tD.s may be r.;so ted to with the greatest safety and success, on the first appearance of indis- position, aud by adopting this practice, many serious and too often fatal attacks will he entirely prevented. The following is the opinion of an eminent Physician practis- ing extensively in Bristol and Cliftott- I have exdinined the composition of Dr. Sydenham's Pilla, and consider them a very valllabl. remedy in all com- plaints to which the Digestive Organs aie suliject, especially bilious affections, and an innumerable variety ot diseases which are the consequences of an iiregular and imperfect tion of the organs of digestion." ix The most delicate Females, the young and aged, prrfe SYDENHAM'S PILLS to most other aperients, as they are beneficial to their general health, improve their appearance, and being a VEGETABLE PREPARATION:, they are at once mild, safe, and effectual. The high opinion entertained of SYDENHAM'S FAMILY PlI.LS, by many of the most eminent of the Faculty, in pre- sent practice, (as well as the number ot gratifying Testimonials the Proprietor is constantly receiving from persons of the highest respectability and standing in society who have been materially benefitted by their use,) renders any eulogitim 011 their merits superfluous, and must convince the mo;t sceptical of the superior properties of this i^luahle established medi- cine, acknowledged by thousands as the best, safest, and most effectual Family Medicine now before the Public. These Pills are sent abroad by the Loudon exporting houses. Merchants and Captains of vessels will find the'.i an almost iudispensible acquision to their Medicine Chests, ey are so prepared as to retain their medicinal properties iu any extreme of climate.
