To the Editot of the Cardiff and Merthyr Guardian. Sm,- William Hopkin, who wrote the song of Maescadlawr, was, by his calling, a tiler and plasterer. Though his trade was humble-not so his poetic genius. It is doubtful whether he was born in the parish of Llan- gynwyd. He was buried in the Churchyard of that parish, under the western yew tree, where a headstone formerly indicated the spot. About six or eight years ago some Goth made use of this headstone as a foundation for a neighbouring tomb The wretch deserved to have been indicted. On this stone was inscribed (it is said) the following:- "In memory of WILLIAM HOPKIN, of this parish, who died the 19th of August, 1741, aged 10 years. Dyma le goleu y gwelwch—r wy'n gorwedd, Dan gaerau pob tristwch: Os tirion, chwi ystyriwch, Lleyg a Hen llawen a'n llwch. Nid yw'r holl-vyd, hyvryd hedd, A'i vwriad ond overedd." The parish register thus records his sepulture-" Gu- mus Hopkin sepultus fuit vicessimo die Augusti 741." And 40 years prior to this is the following record « Gulielmu3 filius Hopkini Thomas et Dianse Harry baptus. fuit 24to. 9 bris 1700." The custom of the Welsh, as is well known, was, and still is, frequently to take the Christian name of the father as the surname of the child; and this baptism may be that of the bard. He, unfor- fortunately, fell in love with a lady far his superior in rank-a daugh* of the Thomases, of Cefn Ydva she returned his love; and being compelled to marry another, she lost her reason. Tales, teeming with romance, are I related by the hill folk of the attachment of this lady and her humble lover. The love songs of William Hopkin o "the Maid of Cefn Ydva" are excessively beautiful; and it is a subject of regret that many of them are now nearly lost. In the collection of the Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morganwg, by Miss Jane Williams, of Aberpergwm, page 38-9, appears an amatory poem, universally attributed, among his native hills, to William Hopkin, in honour of "the Lady of Cefn Ydva." The sentiment of this song is exceedingly simple-purely Welsh-and of that kind which cannot be translated literally without sinking to common-place, and to para- phrase which would be to destroy its peculiar beauty. Perfectly conscious of this, the song, as given by Miss William, is subjoined, with an attempt to give it in English words adapted to the old Welsh air. BUGEILIA'R GWENITH GWYN.

Oh! raise thine eyes-one look bestow; Yield, yield thine hand, my fairest; For in thy bosom, witching maid, My heart's sole key thou bearest.

Oh t raise my head, bowed down by grief, With kindest accents speaking Than worlds more dear is thy one glance To him whose heart is breaking. While hair adorns my aching brow, This heart will beat sincerely: Whilst ocean rolls its briny flow, So long I'll love thee dearly. Oh! tell the truth! in secret tell, And under seal discover, If it be I-or who is blest As thy pure heart's best lover. Yours truly, Llan. Yicarage, 6th Oct., 1845. R. & M.
WORCESTER AND MERTHYR TYDVIL…
WORCESTER AND MERTHYR TYDVIL JUNCTION RAILWAY. A public meeting of the inhabitants of Merthyr Tydvil and its neighbourhood was held at the Castle Hotel on Friday last, for the°purpose of taking into consideration which of the proposed lines of railway from Merthyr to Abergavenny, will be most de- sirable for the interest and convenience of the town and neigh- bourhood. We observed present the following influential and highly respectable gentlemen:-William Thomas, Esq., Court, Merthyr; Walter Thompson, Esq., Banker, Merthyr; Edward Davies, Esq., Surgeon, Cyfarthfa; Edward Davies, Esq., Merthyr: William Davies Esq., Solicitor, Merthyr Watkin Scale, Esq., Aberdare; James Russell, Esq., Solicitor, Merthyr; Thomas Browne, Esq., Sirhowy: David James, Esq., Merthyr; Walkingshaw, Esq.; Lewis Lewis, Esq.; Charles James, Esq., Solicitor, Mer- thyr; lllingworth, Esq., Tredegar; Needham, Esq,. Llandaff; Samuel Homfray, Esq.; David Evans, Esq.. Dowlais Works; Benjamin Martin, Esq.; Mr. William Williams, Swan- sea; Mr. Kirkhouse, jun., Vale of Neath; Mr. Stephens, Mer- thyr, &c„ &c. The following gentlemen attended as a deputation from the Worcester and Merthyr Tydvil Junction Railway Company:- William Chadwick, Esq., Chairman Thomas Bridges Simpson, Esq., Deputy Chairman; W, L. Whitmore, Esq., John Hem- ming, Esq.; W. H. Cooke, Esq., and the solicitors; Charles G. Jones, Esq.; and C. Chamberlain, Esq. David James, Esq., was unanimously called to the chair. Shortly after two o'clock, the Chairman rose and said he was sorry the meeting had not placed in the chair a person of greater influence than he was, or one who was more intimately con- nected with the important district which this railroad (the Wor- cester and Merthyr Tydvil Junction) was likely to open out. However, having frequently experienced the kindness of his fellow-townsmen, he trusted that upon this, as upon former oc- casions, they would assist him in discharging those duties which devolved upon him. (Hear.) He had no doubt they should get through the business of the day very pleasantly, and that all present would give their support to that line of railway which, upon examination, would be found the best calculated to promote the interests of the district with which they were con- nected. (Cheers.) With those few preliminary observations, he would call upon some gentleman of the deputation to address the meeting, and to state what their views were. (Hear.) William Davies, Esq., thought it right to state at this stage of the proceedings, that having received a private communication respecting this line, and with reference to the course it should take, and having taken some interest in the matter, he thought it to be his duty to call a meeting of the inhabitants, in order that they might hear fully what its promoters had to say. (Cheers.) He had given every publicity to the announcement that a meeting was to be held, so as to procure a full attendance; and he now trusted, that when the gentlemen who were assem- bled had heard the views stated which the promoters of the line entertained, they would give the subject due consideration, and act in the manner best calculated to promote the prosperity of the place generally. He thought this line would place at the convenience of the inhabitants the most direct communication to Ross, from whence they could proceed to London, or any other part of the kingdom. (Hear.) i_ v William Chadwick, Esq., then rose and said he had the honor to appear before the meeting as one of the deputation from the r Worcester and Merthyr-Tydvil Railway Junction Company. The gentlemen present were, no doubt, perfectly acquainted sajd familiar with the course which this line was intended to take, namely, to commence at the station of the Monmouth and Hereford and Worcester and South^Wales Junction at Ross, and to proceed to Abergavenny, thence by Llanelly, Nantyglo, Tre- degar, Ebbw Vale, Rumney, and Dowlais, to Merthyr-Tydvil, at which place it would join the Taff Vale Railway-the distance being about 40 miles. (Hear.) The line in contemplation would form not only the nearest communication to England, but what was of far greater importance, it would, by way of Aber- gavenny without going to Hereford, form the nearest line to Gloucester, and connect the inhabitants of Merthyr with the -nearest line to London. (Hear.) It was evident that, situated as the town of Merthyr-Tydvil was, in the centre of a valuable -al district, it would be most important that they should some better means of communication with the great towns f empire than mere water carriage. He was convinced that when this line was made the greater portion of their manu- tnaiwnej wouid be carried by it—communication by factured m • nllickest possible, and despatch being of the xaxlway being the q^ (Hear.) This line, as they utmost importance Ross to Abergavenny, and thence were aware, would ru Merthyr. Whatever commu- proceed as straight as P^hle Taff Vale Railway xucation may after war rnmDany the committee would be Company, or with any «' e hich would most conduce to ▼ery happy to carry out tha p „ Having stated those the prosperity ef the district. (Hear. accrue to the general outlines of the advantages whicn inhabitants of Merthyr by the establishing wnnld inform thpm t>ia« nmnnoATVaS 1U wnnld infonn thpm t>ia« +}'ö was in the room, and would be happy to answer any question haying chadwifk) be termed engineering difficulties. (Hear.) He (Mr. C j was quite satisfied that in the present age such difficult e were not susceptible of removal were hardly known- perseverance and money they could accomplish any thing; be- sides, when they heard what had been done by the assistance of the atmospheric principle, which principle was now coming into operation, engineering difficulties could more easily be encountered. (Hear.) He (Mr. Chadwick) would also be ready to answer any question having reference to this line. The Chairman asked whether the engineer was prepared to give the meeting information how he intended coming from 10 give Dowlais and what would be the rise. Thf Engineer: 1 have ascertained the levels from Aberga- IThVthaimaT:' IIow do you come from Abergavenny to the Ebbw Vale 1 ten miles at the rate of ^The Engineer: I come upthe » £ and after that the 100 feet in a mile, which is about one iu is comparative^ level to Dowtetf' v The Chairman: And does that 10 miles bring you to EbbwVale? The Engineer: Yes, between Beaufort and Nantyglo. Thomas Browne, Esq., said that for his own personal satis- faction, he had spent nearly a day with the engineer in going through the levels from Abergavenny up to the valley above the Ebbw Vale and as far as that portion of the line went he (Mr. Browne) was satisfied that it was perfectly practicable (cheers) and that he (the engineer) would have a line to form that would not present difficulties of any extraordinary charac- ter. (Hear.) He (Mr. Browne) had with him at the time of survey the plans of a line by which he could check the accuracy of the levels taken by the engineer, inasmuch as the late Ebbw Vale Company had surveyed that line of country some years ago, and the parliamentary survey he had with him. (Hear, hear.) He was much pleased to find that the levels taken by the company's engineer were correct. From that part of the country in the direction of Merthyr he could not speak accurately as to its nature, but as far as his knowledge of the district went, to the summit of the Dowlais Hill, the report made by the surveyor was correct. However, the country was better known to gentlemen who resided in Merthyr than it was to him (Mr. Browne), and the meeting would probably have the benefit of their local knowledge. (Hear.) Mr. Chadwick said that if Merthyr could not be approached by the line in question the company would undertake to make a branch for that purpose. (Cheers.) The Chairman said that no person could make the line from Merthyr to Dowlais a passenger line, as the nature of the "round rendered the matter impossible. He then asked the deputation in what way was it proposed to connect Ross with London. There was no connecting railroad at present. (Hear.) W. H. Cooke, Esq., explained that by means of this line, and the Monmouth and Hereford, parties would be brought within six miles of Gloucester, from whence they might proceed in any direction. Further explanations were given from which we gathered that a plan had been matured for connecting the district of Merthyr with the Great Western and other leading lines of railway. Mr. Chadwick and other gentlemen explained that by the present undertaking the most direct route would be formed for the north by way of Worcester, and for London by way of Gloucester. Charles G. Jones, Esq.: Our line from Merthyr to Worcester is much nearer than the Eastern and Western line, because that line goes from lUrrthyr tj Hereford, and then from Hereford to Worcester whereas we go in the most direct manner. (Hear.) Some time was then occupied in conversation, and in exa- mining maps of this and other lines. After which, William Thomas, Esq., rose and proposed a resolution con- taining an expression of opinion that the meeting highly ap- proved of the contemplated undertaking-, and would give the promoters its strenuous support. [See advt.] The proposition was seconded by Thomas Evans, Esq. The Chairman suggested the expediency of withholding any specific pledge upon the subject. He thought they should not pledge themselves to give this undertaking their strenuous sup- port lest they should thereby deprive themselves of the right to support any better line which might, possibly, be proposed for their approval. In n<-cnunla at public meetings, at which deputations from railway companies had been present, he perceived that no pledge was given. He suggested that they should not give a pledge, but pass such a resolution as would just stop short of that point. (Hear.) W. H. Cooke, Esq., thought that pledges had been withheld only in cases where the neighbourhood did not feel sufficient confidence in the promoters of the line. (Hear.) Thos. Browne, Esq., thought that if they pursued the course suggested by the Chairman, they were not likely to have any line of railway at all. (Hear, hear.) He thought sufficient time had been given for considering the matter, and that when they viewed the quantity of preparations which were necessarily required in order to comply with all the provisions of the stand- ing orders of parliament, he thought they would be of opinion that no time was to be lost. With reference to the proposed undertaking as a means of affording a direct communication to London, he (Mr. Browne) thought it was the best thing for this district which had yet been proposed. (Cheers.) He had not heard of any line which took them beyond Abergavenny. If they ran down either of the valleys to join the South Wales line, why, they would be left at Chepstow (cheers); whereas this line took them within seven miles of a connecting link of the Great Western line. and there could be no doubt but that that seven miles would be filled up, (Cheers.) He firmly felt that the proposed undertaking was fully deserving of their cor- dial support. (Loud cheers.) The resolution was then put formally from the chair, and car- ried unanimously. A vote of thanks to the gentlemen wno composed tne deputa- tion, was then proposed by Thomas Browne. Esq., seconded by Benjamin Martin, Esq., and carried by acclamation. Thomas B. Simpson, Esq., returned thanks on behalf of the deputation. He was much obliged to the meeting for its unani- mous support. Probably, if he had been in the chairman s situation, he might have adopted the course he (the chairman) had taken. He (Mr. Simpson) admired his caution; but still, looking at the whole measure—its importance to the district- the difficulties its promoters would have to encounter-and the time which would necessarily be occupied in preparing for Par- liament-the deputation did certainly look for that measure of support from the meeting, which would have the effect of sending them forth to do their duties with something like con- fidence; with something like a knowledge that they (the depu- tation) had the inhabitants of the district with them in all that they did. (Cheers.) He assured the meeting that although this undertaking might be considered a speculation on which they entered, and from which they proposed to derive personal profit, they could not conceal from themselves that in obtaining such advantages, they would also be affording great advantages to the entire neighbonrhood. (Loud cheers.) The meeting would feel, with the deputation, the importance of the proposed under- taking. (Hear.) He was obliged to the meeting for the mark of confidence which it had given. He could truly say, that he had not yet heard one single dissenting opinion on the matter. (Hear.) For the courteous manner in which the deputation had been received, he begged to return, once more, his best acknow- ledgements and also to assure the meeting, that in carrying their object into effect no time should be lost; and no principle of honour and integrity should be wanting to render it as satis- factory to the district, as it could possibly be made. (Loud cheers.) C V:„ onrl n 1 A vote OX tnanKS to tne cua.iiuia.ii Wi ""1' presidency was then proposed by Mr. Simpson, seconded by Mr. Chadwicke, and carried unanimously with loud cheers. In acknowledging the compliment, the Chairman said that he had entered the room rather adverse to the plan proposed. He thought it was not a better plan than some others which had been proposed for public consideration; but the map of the line which he had seen, together with the remarks which he had heard convinced him that a better line from Merthyr to London had not yet been devised. (Cheers.) If his opinion had not been altered, he would not, certainly, have taken part in the proceedings, but he was compelled to acknowledge that he thought this line gave the inhabitants the best communication frotnMerthyr to London—at least the best that had yet been submitted for public attention; and therefore he felt very great pleasure in having been present when such resolutions were carried. (Cheers.) The names of several gentlemen present were then added to the provisional committee, after which the meeting separated. RAILWAY SpECULATION.-Wild and ludicrous though many of the speculations be that are now eagerly received—head- long and unreflecting though the passion with which the pub- lic neglectful of almost everything else, runs after them- there is yet no general danger. Money is transferred from old channels of investment, or withdrawn from inactivity to be poured into the new one; head and hand labourers are employed and paid; &"d the available roads will remain to the public when the phreazy subsides. The money will have changed hands, but will not be lost substantially. The fever of speculation has as yet been confined to the" share-market" -the produce and other markets are exempt from it: it is only a limited, though a large number of the community, that has caught the infection; and the majority of this class will awake from its dream in time, and be contented to find itself half as rich as it imagined. But, incidentally, there will be a great deal of individual suffering. Nearly half of the railway projects now In the field can never be carried into execution, either from natnral obstacles, or the success of rival lines. Their shares are like the card in the old maid," which every one tries to pass to his neighbour; he who cannot get quit of it being accounted the loser. And shares of this kind will be most likely to remain in the hands of those who do not understand the nature of the share-market—a class largely engaged in railway speculation. There is something so at- tractive in being told that Mr. —— has made so much by buying shares a week ago and selling them to-day. Any- body can do that; and everybody tries it. Annuitant dowagers, beneficed clergy, lean men of literature, briefless barristers', the whole of the uneasy class," nay, menial ser- vants will have a nibble in passing. Hailway speculation is at present what the Government lottery used to be-a tempta- tion to persons with slender means to throw away their little money and incur liabilities they can never meet. And it were well if It ended there but the moral taint which this over-speculative spirit brings along with it is more pernicious still. The desire of ladies young and old, and all classes of annuitants, to make a liule money by some lucky railway hit, is like the desire to make a little money by a lucky night at cards • and when the desire grows to a passion, engrosses the hole"soul and spreads through whole fami ies, as it is now doine the respectability and happiness of not the least valu- able class of society are compromised. This must be of right attributed not to railways, but to railway finance.—Spectator. a t I
FASHIONS FOR OCTOBER.
FASHIONS FOR OCTOBER. Morning Cap* —Amidst the most fashionable novelties of the season, we have remarked some very pretty morning caps of embroidered muslin; the front part is concealed by a kind of small half handkerchief, also of embroidered muslin, trimmed round the back part with two rows of lace, descending on each side in the form of lappets, and ornamented with a blue ribbon, put on plain upon the centre of the head, axuTtpwaiuated on each side by a nceud of ribbon, with long ends drooping care- lessly at the sides. Dresses for the present month still continue to have all the freshness of a summer toilette. We cannot fail to admire that pretty plaid dress a carreaux, pink and white, and trimmed with two broad flounces, each more than three quarters in width, and ornamented with a pink fringe, the heading of which is rather broad, and formed of three rows of open work; plain body, having a deep point, with no plait on either side the centre of the corsage is composed of two pieces, forming the cross way on each side of the shoulders; the back is also formed in a point, and plain and narrow at the sides the sleeves of this pretty costume are trimmed with two narrow frillings, trimmed likewise with fringe. Evening Dresses.-We have remarked several very charming toilettes intended for soirees dansantes. These dresses are made a petit revers plain, and placed front and back instead of any other drapery, the back of the waist forming a kind of jacket. The sleeves are short, and form a kind of facing by means of a sort of wristband, which binds the sleeve, the skirt trimmed with four broad folds, reaching from the hips to the lower part of the dress. Bonnets.-Already we have been favoured with a sight of some distingue looking ones made in velvet, of a rather open form, and ornamented with a bunch of two moderate-sized feathers, or a bouquet of three small ones, tipped with the 1 same colour as the velvet. Satin ribbons, likewise of the same t colour, complete the ornamenting of the bonnet. Feathers this year have obtained great success amongst our muit fashionable modistes, particularly those pretty plumes zephyriennes, the Argus feather, and others too numerous to mention. Flowers.—Wreaths in the hair will be much worn this au- tumn; we may cite, as those most in favour for their fresh and natural appearances, the Pamela wreath and crown a la Ninon, which encircles the back part of the head, and has a most youthful and becoming effect. Mantelets—Some very elegant ones have lately appeared of embroidered tarlatane, in the form of a shawl, opening over the ton of the arms, and trimmed all round with three rows of lace. TTien Main, there is the eeharpe a capuchon, made of white ^FXoUbt^ofourf forUther preset'autumnal season are principally shades of green, particularly sea-green, violet, grey, and a variety of mixed such as and red, grey and white, two shades of blue, lilac aDd whlte, &c.

CHURCH PASTORAL AID SOCIETY.
CHURCH PASTORAL AID SOCIETY. [The following was in type last week.] THE Annual and General Meeting of the Cardiff and Llandaff branch of this excellent society was held in the Town Hall, Cardiff, on Tuesday evening. The meeting was, we regret to have to state, very thinly attended. R. O. Jones, Esq., of Fonmon Castle, presided. The Rev. W. Leigh Morgan opened the proceedings by engaging in prayer; after which The Chairman spoke at considerable length, and ex- plained with great clearness and perspicuity the objects of the society, which, he said, had been established ten years, and had been the means of effecting much good. The population in many places had increased to such an extent as to become entirely unmanageable by those appointed by the Church; and their object was to afford assistance to the minister of such places by sending to their aid a person duly appointed and qualified. The Society were always ready to afford assistance to clergymen when- ever required so to do, and they had now 245 grants in operation. The Society's funds were not adequate to meet the constantly increasing demands made upon it for assistance. Last year thirty-five applications for grants could not be attended to, in consequence of the shortness of their funds. He trusted that the public would come for- ward and contribute liberally towards the support of a Society which was eminently calculated to be an instru- ment of effecting lasting benefit. The Rev. R. Frichard, of Llandaff, read the report for the last year. He stated that the Bishop of Llandaff subscribed liberally to the parent society, and also gave the annual sum of ten guineas to the Cardiff and Llandaff branch. His lordship was quite unable to attend the meeting, being detained by business of great importance at Llandaff; but he desired Mr. Prichard to express the high opinion he (the Bishop) had, not only of the object of the meeting, but of the mode adopted by the parent society for carrying out that object. (Hear, hear). The income produced by this branch amounted last year to £ 41 2s., which sum had been forwarded to the parent society, and was duly entered in their Annual Report. The Rev. W. Leigh Morgan, in moving a resolution, which contained an expression of approval of the society's objects and labours, said, that in the Diocese of Llandaff there were employed by this society twelve clergymen, amidst a population amounting to 60,000 souls, for the support of whom the society paid JE900, thereby procuring twenty-five services every Sunday, and fourteen services during week days. In the county of Glamorgan there were four clergymen paid by the society; and in Mon- mouthshire there were eight. To meet the expenses consequent upon these appointments, the society received from Glamorganshire £111 but paid F.290, showing an excess ot payments over subscriptions, as far as Glamor- ganshire was concerned, of £ 179. In Monmouthshire, the society paid in salaries to their clergymen the sum of JE610, but received in subscriptions from the county only £ 246; leaving a deficiency of j6364. It contributed towards the Diocese, £ 900, and received only £357. He did not wish to make it a debtor and creditor account, but merely to put the meeting in possession of the facts, in the tape that larger sums would be contributed this year. 9r. Morgan then enumerated the sums contri- buted by the several towns of this county and Monmouth- shire—namely by Swansea, jE19 Neath, 1;27 Newport, E5 3s; Pontyjool, JMI 7s., &c.; thus showing that in some instances the least important towns contiibuted most, and the nost important very often the least. For example, Newport only contributed the sum of £5 3s., and Swansea ancils neighbourhood, which are almost as populous as Newport, Cardiff, and Neath taken together, only subscribed the paltry sum of £ 19! The Rev. H. VYyndham Jones, of Llougher, the depu- tation from the Pirent Society, was then introduced to the meeting. He said, the society was first called into existence by gentlenen who observed with concern, the state of spiritual destitution in which many of our large cities were plunged. It had proceeded, upon the whole, favourably. There vere added to the population of this country 200,000 sout every year, whilst means of grace were only provided Dr half that number. He was not speaking of the mean of grace provided by the establish- ment alone, but in naking the estimate, took into his consideration all the means of grace provided. What, then, ?ould they say d the other 100,000 souls, but that they vere cast as heahens upon our country! Hence, he wasnot surprised t( see vice so extensively prevail- ing sich ignorance, md such iniquity, which always accompinied ignorance. In Liverpool alone, there were 60,000 buls who neva* entered a place of worship, except U,on the occasien of a marriage, or, perhaps, a funeial. The voice of preachers in the pulpit would never reatj the haunts o' iniouitv. and. therefore, aid to the clergy -as required such aid as would place at their disposal me who might)e employed to enter the dwell- ings of thepeople, and there to minister unto their spiritual watg. The reigious destitution of London and other lark towns was very great. Of one hundred and nineteenouses in London, only four of the occu- piers wene to-i place of religious worship! To visit these houses \d to teach the people, men peculiarly qualified were -equired, and such men the society always endeavoed to select. The advancement of Romanism in th country, whilst, also, vice and igno- rance were advaing in connection with the Church of Rome, called specially for the exertions of the friends of true md undefiled religion. Within the last thirty ^rs the Roman Catholic places of worship had increased from thirty-five to nearly five hundrt During the last six years fifty-four Roman Glolic chapels had been built in England and Wales,esides which, nine monasteries I had been erected, an'nineteen nunneries built, in all twenty-eight religi0Uijj0Uses and fifty-four Catholic chapels built, and upi £ df and opened in the course of the last six years _(Se,tjon-j# Infidelity in the shape of Socialism also existed jje heard that there were 32,000 Socialists at the pent time in the town of Man- chester. One of the Soc^g> objects was to get rid of what they term "the Devil_'rjnity •< namely-they wanted to get rid of Marriage. Priv, property, and the Christian Religion. The society therele was established for the pur- pose of counteracting the etts of ignorance and vice, of checking the advancement °pmanism, and the progress of systemized infidelity in ttorm 0f Socialism. With regard to the society s opelons, Mr. Jones said that during the last nine years 51 lrches had been built, the building of which might clea be traced to the opera- tions of the society, although were not built by the society. Eleven chapels had bought of different bodies of Dissenters, and re-oied by the society's mi- nisters. No less than 36 chur, had been opened, or kept open which otherwise wot ha.ve been closed for want of means to pay the mini Thus there were 98 places of worship kept oper,rough means which were fairly traceable to the Fasto Society, and by which the knowledge of God, circulated amongst circu poor sinners.

Earl Spencer was born on the 30th of May, 1782, anc^ ^ue time went to Trinity College, where he obtained the holrary degrea of M.A. At the very earliest possible age he entere the House of Commons, having been elected for Okehamioa, While he sat for that borough it could not be said that he|jd anything in the House of Commons which reflected much crqjt upon the etectorswho had returned him to Parliament; he wil, however, at that period so very young a man, that no very cou siderable display of legislative ability conld be expected a his hands. But if his talents-such as they were -had not yei bel,un to develope themselves, his ambition was more preco- cious, and he offered himself for Cambridge at the earliest) opportunity that occurred. The death of Mr. Pitt led to a general election, but Lord Althorp, as candidate for his alma mater was defeated by a large majority, and he was fain to fall back upon the constituency which he had previously repre- sented. In the same year a vacancy occurred for Northampton- shire, where a considerable portion of the estates of the Spencer family are situated. For that county he was returned after a severe struggle, and continued to represent it for nearly a quarter of a century. During the Fox and Grenville Ministry the office which he first held under the Crown, was conferred upon him. It was one of small importance, namely, a Lordship of the Treasury but every one knows, it belongs to that class of situations by means of which the scions of the aristocracy are usually initiated in the mysteries of official life. From this time forward he laboured with the assiduity and zeal which distin- guished the leading Whigs of that period. On the 14th of April, 1814, the deceaspcl Poer married Esther, only daughter and heiress of the late Mr. Kichard Acklom, of Wiseton, in the county of Nottingham. By his Lordship's union with Miss Acklom, lie leaves no surviving issue, and the title descends to his brother. Lady Althorp died in Halkin-street, on the llth of June, 1H18, and the subject of this memoir did not re-marry. His lordship had sat considerably more than thirty years in the House of Commons, when called to the Upper House of Par- liament by the death of his father in 1834. As Lord Althorp his lordship acted a very prominent part during the last twenty years of his semces as a commoner. an(1 Talents "administration as ^^30 he was appointed Chancellor of the^xchequer, and selected as leader^of the House of Commons by Lord Grey's Government. upon this occasion, 01 uoniiiiou j fEarl Ripon) resignation in as well as upon Lord Godencli s (t P 1827. it was proposed to raise Lord i Premier, but the proposition was not pressed upon George the ez W«he w4/„.y Sriiri™°r»d\o,d BrougLm, wh„,e p,„,c After Lord L,rey, nowever, <u u k there certainly was sion necessarily called hi he woo cuuU1 be no member of the W hig pau, .0 whp gay so justly awarded as to ^id -wthorp. ackmowiedse that lordship was a W hy ol the Fo^ schoo i(je was his political principle, were abound, an icatiou ,)f necessarily and violently wh^ his unsound principles No ™°Althovp adhered to it with- party with the fidelity with which LordA't h out being constantly dragged backwan1 iofl was, however, mire of faction.

A woman of Infestro, a small town in Austurins, was delivered two months ago, of a female infant with two faces, which have agreeable features. This phenomenon thrives apace, and takes the breast with either of its two mouths. When crying or smiling both faces are agitated alike. It has only two ears and two arms, but corres- ponding with the hind face is another breast. Large sums have already been offered by speculators to the mother for the poor little creature. SCARCITY OF LABOURERS.—So great is the scarcity of agricultural labourers in this district, that on Saturday last the city crier was engaged in perambulating the streets, alleys, and courts of this city, announcing where employ- ment might be had for hop-pickers, &c. With the drain upon the labour market consequent upon the railways about to be laid down in this country, next year labour will be exceedingly valuable, if it be not scarce enough to retard or prevent the gathering in of the fruits of the earth. — Worcester Journal. A SAVING SAINT.—The "building committee" of a dissenting place of worship in the county of Northumber- land, which has recently been enlarged, called upon a very strait-laced member of the congregation, who was expected to subscribe liberally. The amount put down disappointed p them, and they told him so. Oh," said be, it's quite enough; as much as you've got anvwhere else." Nay," was the reply, has given double the sum." "So he should," rejoined our ready hero: "he goes twice as much as I do."

The Constitutionnel adds, that the poacher drives a roaring trade, and is perfectly satisfied with the patronage he receives. At some of our own fishing stations live fish are kept, and may be purchased by unsuccessful anglers, who do not like to go home with empty baskets. IMPROVED DEFENCES AT PLYMOUTH AND DEVONPORT. -The fortifications at Plymouth are proceeding steadily. The new half-moon battery on Staddon Heights, in con- nexion with which an extensive barrack is to be erected, will protect the eastern passage into the Sound effectually, while another work, to be formed on that part of the Earl of Mount Edgecombe's park which approaches nearest to the Breakwater, will quite command the western en- trance. This latter will be joined to the fortified barracks and batteries (already built, but in course of repair and enlargement) by a tram-road for the conveyance of ammu- nition for the service of the guns, and other requisites. On Saturday last repossession was taken by the govern- ment of the Long-room premises at Stonehouse, including the adjoining heights, on which a redoubt ill be built and heavy guns placed to sweep the important channel between that point and Drake's Island, where anain considerable works are being carried on. The whole of the small cannon which since the last war have remained on the batteries at the Citadel, Mount Wise, and elsewhere, are to be taken away as inapplicable to the present system of warfare, and other guns of an increased calibre substituted. Moor- ings are likewise to be laid down oft' the Breakwater for (it is stated) three large blockships, which will provea very powerful auxiliary protection to the harbour and ar- senal in case of need. These several alterations will, when completed, place that seaport in a most efficient state of defence, which with the formation of a steam dock now in progress, together with the enlargement of the original dockyard by the addition of Mutton Cove and its neigh- bourhood, will have increased very considerably in impor- tance.-Naval and Military Gazette. A FIGHT AT A CHAPEL.—A regular row occurred on Sunday morning last, at the Primitive Methodist Chapel, Dawgreen, Dewsbury, in consequence of one of the mort- gagees (who is also one of the trustees) having sold his mortgage to another sect (It is said the Baptists), and eno-aged to give possession to their preacher on Sunday morning last. This having got »o the ears of the other trustees and Sunday-school teachers, they secured the keys of the chapel, and on the arrival of the minister and some friends an attempt was made to obtain-them by force, which was the cause of a general row. It is said as many as seven battles were going on at once out of doors, he- sides the tumbling over forms, &c., in the school, the children running screaming home, and the teachers even- tually ejecting the intruders. The chapel was not open for service until the afternoon, when all went quietly on as usual, and the concern is now put into the hands of the lawyers.—Halifax Guardian. IRELAND'S GREATEST.W ANT. -Surely the great want in Ireland, after all, is a regard lor truth. No "national" party seems to possess it, least of all the soi-disant national paity. The prevailing want has been displayed in a variety of ways this week. Mr. O'Connell is again afield, and he has had a huge" monster-meeting" at Thurles, in Tipperary it was held in open day, yet it is impossible to obtain anything like trustworthy Irish evidence as to its numerical amount: the estimate of the Repealers takes a range as wide as from 300,000 to 1,000,000, or a number countless;" while the reporter for an English paper reckons the gathering at less than a third of the lowest of the Milesian figures. Whatever their number, the multi- tude met, listened to some platitudes such as have grown st-tle at Repeal meetings, and went away: and of those proceedings the Dublin Nation speaks as follows: —"This was a telling and a tremendous thing-the coming together of the men of Tipperary. It was a steady and a wise thing, too. It is described as a Countless multitude- quiet, orderly, without fault. They came, these men of Tipperary, and they met, and they resolved, and they separated-that multitude of men, such as never met before -and the roads were narrow, and the journey long, and there were no sore, and no soil was upon the greatness of that day, so sunny for Ireland." This is a very para- phrase, in fustian, of that tale of a king and all his men who marched up a hill and then marched down again: but the turgid rhodomontade furnishes a clue to the value of Repeal arithmetic. ATMOSPHERIC CHANGES. —Although changes in the temperature are more prevalent in the temperate zone than in other latitudes, there is scarcely a spot to be found where such great differences exist as in Great Britain, varying in a few hours some 20 degrees or more. The effect of such rapid changes on the bodily health is very afflicting to many thousands of persons, especially to those in the middle and more advanced ages of life, causing in' attacks of those painful disorders, Sciatica, Gout, and Rheumatism. Happily for those who are afflicted with those painful diseases, chemical science has produced that excellent medicine, Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills. PRICE OF FOOD.-It is always made to appear that the price of food is the greatest object of a poor man's anxiety. But this is utterly untrue. The grand point with the labourer is constant work at good wages. Let him only have this, and the question whether the 41b loaf shall be 6d. or 8d. becomes quite a secondary consideration. NoWj^ in buyingybre<<7?i wheat, instead of English wheat, thet^ is always this harm done. We pay the wages ot a certain number of farm-labourers in Poland, instead of paying those wages to a like number of our own countrymen. It the growing] 00 quarters of wheat involves the employ- ment of two labourers, it follows that the purchase of 100 quarters of foreign wheat implies the discharge and the pauperising of those two British workmen. Hence we would have no wheat imported, except, by the visitation of God, in famine we wete brought absolutely to need it, and that need we should regard as a fearful calamity. Morning Herald. CHARGE OFCHILD MURDER AGAINST A STEPFATHER.— HORRIBLE CRUELTY.—On Thursday week, Mr. Mills held a protracted inquiry at the Coach and Horses, Air-street, Hatton-garden, on the body of W. Hill, aged six months. Elizabeth Hill, a very young woman, mother of de- ceased, examined—My husband is a glass-cutter, and we reside at No. 26 in this street. About eleven o'clock on Saturday night last, I left the baby well and hearty in bed, and went into Leather-lane to buy it some milk. It was then fast asleep. "I returned in fifteen minutes, and found it dead in bed. The child was not born in wedlock, and my present husband is not the father of it. There was no one in the room when I found the child dead. When I went out for the milk I left my husband in the room quite sober, and standing with his back to the fire. When I took the child from the bed it made a strange noise in the throat once, and then died. Witness, in her examina- tion, said she had told her husband she was sure he had killed the baby, when he replied, That it was no use to say anything to me about it." Witness further added that he bad frequently ill-used and threatened the child. About a month ago, in the middle of the night, the child being ill and crying at the time, he said if I did not keep it still he would dash its brains out. Also, that abqut two months ago, during the night, he got out of bed, and, thinking I was asleep, he put his hands over me, and pinched a piece out of the calf of the baby's right leg. The wound did not heal until last week. A surgeon proved that the child died from injuries, and fracture of the head. The inquest lasted a considerable length of time, and the jury finally returned a verdict of Wilful murder" against William Hill. GRANTS OF PUBLIC MONEY TO ECCLESIASTICAL ES- TABLISHMENTS, &c. — A Parliamentary paper has just been issued, containing further returns of grants for support of all religious denominations, and for building and repairing Churches, &c. The first part of the document has refer- ence to all grants of public money for the support of all religious denominations in the United Kingdom and else- where, except the colonies, including expenses of visita- tions and excursions of Bishops, ArchdeacoDS, and Clergy, 1 j connected with foreign embassies and missions, distin- ishing the amount received by each denomination. It ears that from 1830 to 1844 inclusive (a period of 15 I ^), the Church ot Lngland had grants ot public money *\ting to £ 4,441 3s. 2d.; the Church of Scotland to ^08 10s. 9d.; the Church of Rome in Ireland, l"^lj!; Protestant Dissenters in England, £ 27,514 and the Protestant Dissenters in Irelaud, Cleiiis. 9d. In the same period the expenses of the amouLnected with foreign embassies and missions, Bishops £88,742 17s. 5d.; and the expenses of out and Uergy in journeys of visitations and passages and repa^^QQ Is. 10d. The expenses of building drawback ,r Churches and Chapels, including the X22619.59 Ay on materials used, were-in England, 1 Scotland, X65,791 Ótl, 9d.; and in < Ireland, JE277 7s. 9d. The amount received by the Church Bniiding Commissioners tor interest on Exchequer Bids, loans, &c., was JE59,665 8. 9d. The amount of the arrears of tithes and expenses, &c., under the Tithe Million and other Acts for the relief of the Clergy in Ireland, wa.^ f 957,496 13s. 7d. The expenses of titf Commission for Building New Churches in the period amounted to jM6,349 IGs. 10d., and the expenses of the Commissions for the Commutation of Tillies in England and Wales were £317,800 10s. 3d., and those under the head of Eccle- siastical Purposes," £ 23,300. The result shows that in the years mentioned £2,í "15,853 8s. Id. was expended for the purposes set forth. The second branch of the return sinews the grants of public monev for the" Building and U-.MI.I'I S of Churches and Chapels" of all denominations, from 1S00 to 1829. In England the total was, for Churches, £1,588401 19s. 7<».; in Scotland, £ 68,564 15s. f1d.; and in Iretaad.f 0:33,7 !S 14s. 3d., of which £2,133 13s. Id. was granted for building and repairing Roman Catholic Chapels. The grand tolal applied under the second head of the return was £ 2,290,712 9s. 3d. The delailsof the two returns are given in papers annexed to the returns. We have nothing to note save a rumour that the Government will propose to Parliament to limit the railway committees of the next session to the postponed Bills of the last, as being both sufficient work for them and a wholesome check upon the mania for speculation. — Law Times. LIFE IN RUSSIA!—MDLLE. PLESSY.—The newest on dit of the Parisian theatres is quite a romance (and we should say quite as true as romantic). We give it because the story is well got up. It appears that when this charming actress and her husbaud, M. Arnould, a gentle- man well known in the literary circles of tbe Parisian capital, arrived at the Russian frontier, where a strict sur- veillance is exercised, the authorities demanded their business. "We are going to St. Petersburgh," was the reply. "Where are your passports 1" MJlle. Plessy produced her engagement duly signed and sealed by Gae- denoff, with the approbation of the Emperor Nicholas. "All right—you may proceed," said the official ;-and, turning to M. Arnould, inquired, "And you, Sir?" "1 atn this lady's husband." That is not sufficient," coldly returned the official. "Besides which, here is my pass- port, signed by the Russian ambassador in London." "A passport granted in a foreign country ia perfectly satisfac- tory, at least when there is no order to the contrary; but that unfortunately occurs in the present case, for I have a communication from St. Petersburgb, in which you are an interested party." "I!—that's—strange." It is, nevertheless, the fact. I have here a formal order which prevents your entering the Russian empire." Prevents me entering Russia! Me Pray, may I ask what reason is given for this step?" "As a literary man, have you never made any mal-apropos remarks on ahsolute govern- ments X Have your writings always supported w'>!esome doctrinesl Has your name never figured in the nn k s of opposition scribes t Mind, these remarks are mere conjec- tures on my part, for the order contains nothing in the shape of explanation. I have no further observation to make, and must now request you to take farewell of the lady, and withdraw as soon as possible." "Farewell!" exclaimed Mdlle. Plessy, "do you imagine I will abandon my husband? My duty is to follow him, and if he is not permitted to enter the country, rely upon it I shall not. I will not go on to St. Petersburgh." Excuse me, Ma- dame," said the official in his blandest tone, excuse me, but you have put your foot on the Russian territory, and you must remain." "What," exclaimed the lady, indig- nantly, do you mean that you will detain me by force?'' Most assuredly, Madam," replied the inexorable man- in-office, "for not only have we the means, but also the right to do so. Have you not signed an engagement which is binding on you You are the property of Russia for ten years—your engagement must be fulfilled." The be- reaved, desponding, and furious wife was bon gre mal gre re-seated in her travelling carriage, and started off in a gallop en route, for St. Petersburgh, whilst the unfortunate husband was conducted under an escort to a certain dis- tance from the frontier, with an admonition that if he again attempted to re-enter the territories of the Emperor, he might probably take a longer journey than would be agreeable-to the deserts of Siberia.—Galignani. BRUTAL MURDER.—On Tuesday evening an old man of the name of Ryan, a driver belonging to Mr. Hughes, the car-owner, in Armagh, was barbarously murdered by three person?, who jumped upon the car he was driving, and insisted upon being carried. There was a female on the car who was grossly insulted by those persons, and upon Ryan remonstrating and attempting to protect the woman, the fellows beat him to death. While they were perpetrating the murder, the woman escaped, and ran to the next police station, where, in a few minutes, the body was brought in by three men, who said they found him dead on the road, and that they thought he fell off his car and was accidentally kitted but much to their surprise, the woman identified them as the persons who killed the deceased.— Monaghan Standard. THE M ELANCHOI.Y OCCURRENCE AT HOUNSLOW BARRACKS. — An unfortunate atfair occurred in Houns'ow Barracks on Sunday night week, in which, it seems, Lieutenant Kerwan of the Fourth regiment of Light Dragoons, and another officer, were the principal actors. The above-named gentleman and Captain Fane exchanged a few unpleasant words. Soon after Mr. Kerwan proceeded to his room. and when about leavinj it with his drawn sword Quarter-master Tarleton interfered, which so irritated Mr. Kerwau that he wounded him with the weapon in the region of the abdomen. The following is a copy of the deposition taken at the Hounslow Barracks on Tuesday week, and on which the granting of a warrant for the apprehensiou of Lieut. Kerwan was founded The informa- tion and complaint of Thomas Tarleton, regimental quarter- tnasler of the 4th Regiment of Light Dragoons, who on his oath saith as foHows: -On Sunday night, ahont 10 o'clock, the officers were in the harracka showing feat" of strength amongst themselves, and, in consequence of Lieut. Kerwan, in wrestling with Lirnt. Greville, of the 21 Life Guards, getting thrown twice on the floor" Cap;. Pane stopped the exercise of these two offirers, when Lieut. Kerwan said Capt. Fan6 hdd no right to interfere, as a superillr ofTicer was present. Capt. Fane then left the room, and I lost sight ot him I're- sently afterwards Lieut. Kerwan also left the r^nii, and immediately afterwards Major Parthy, of the 4th Light Dragoons, (the superior officer alluded to), called me out of the ro 'n, and stated that Lieut. Kerwan intended to go Into Capt. Fane's room all,1 the said Major Parlbv said to me thpn-' You are a stout fellow, prevent hiln (meaning the sai d Lieutenant Kerwan) from going into his room.' When I wpnt into the barrack-yard, I there saw the said Lieutenant Kerwan and others, and went up to him, and seeing him excited, I endeavoured to sooth him. He (the said Lieutenant Kcrwan) replied that he had been threatened with the puard-rooro, and to that he would go.' The said Lieutenant Kerwan thpn went up stairs to his own room, and put on his cap. Then I said, '1 will not attov yon to go Otlt., and I shut the door and placed my b ick against t> it. Two swords of the said Lieut. Kerwan were hanging close to the door on pegs, when the said Lieut. Kerwan immediately took one sword, and said he would go out. Ireptiedthatlwottidcotlethim. I said this because he was in so excited a state. Lieut. Kerwan then said, There is another sword—defend yourself At the moment he said this. I was reaching forward, and towards the second sword, but never drew it from the scabbard. At this moment Lieut. Kerwan attempted to get past me at the door, and there he made a thrust at me with the naked steel sword, which did not touch m", but passed tinder my left arm. I immediately afterwards felt the blow which occasioned the wound I have received. The wound was just below the navel, and was inflicted by the sword then in the hand of the said Lieut. Kerwan when he struck me the second time. I said to him immediately, Yo'» have stabbed me,' and I went to the light of the fire and found blood on my shirt, and I went down stairs and sent for the surgeon. All this took place on Sunday night, the 28th day of September, instant, at the Barracks on Hounslow Heath, in the parish of Heston, and in the county of Middlesex. I have always been on tbe best friendly terms with Lieut. Kerwan, and I feel sure that, excepting when he was in the excited state in which he then was, he would have been the last man t" have ininreo Ille. "THOMAS TARLETON." For some days after the occurrence, the life of the wounded man was considered to be 10 the most Immlnent dangu, and \1r. Kerwan was kept in close custody in I othi.(fields prison but on Saturday last, inconsequence of a decided im;irpve- ment in the symutoms evinced by the wound, the magistrates came to the determination to admit the accused to bail, him- self in the sum of ;EMO, and two sureties in £250, for his ap- pearance at that Court on that day fortnight' further to answer the charge. The requisite recognizances having been gone into, Lieutenant Kerwan bowed to the magistrates and left the Court, accompanied by his brother officers and friends, who immediately quitted the place on their way to Hounslow barracks.
