General ftttgcellanii. MONEY MARKET.—THURSDAY EVENING.— The Public Securities have been very unsteady to-day, although the range of prices has not been extensive. The extreme quotations of Consols for money were 945 and 94|, the last being 9t|. For the account, the lowest was 94§, and the highest Q5g, the closing quo- 8 tation 95. Reduced Three per Cents, were last done at 931; the Three-and-a-Quarter New, 95^. Exche- quer Bills, 25 27; India Bonds, 41; Bank Stock, 203L; and India, 260j. Money continues to get easier every day, but there is the same disposition manifested by the bankers to keep large sums unemployed, without rhyme or reason, except a distrust which none of them explain. Any change in the Railway Shares continues to be still rather towards depression than advance. There are few forced sales attempted in the house, but there are a great number of them for which the jobbers will fix no price. In all cases the prices are made wide, and often the condition is made for only a limited number of shares. IVe must repoit, however, that the London market Would not be nearly so much depressed, were it not that the stock is sent in from every district of the country for sale, when opportunity offers. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.—Tms DAY.—Parlia- ment was formally further prorogued to-day, by Com- mission, to Tuesday, the 16th December. Lord Denman, in consequence of the continued indisposi- tion of the Lord Chancellor, officiated as the principal Commissioner.-Sun of Thursday Evening. BRISTOL SUGAR MARKET, Nov. 26th, 1845.— The amount of business transacted in the Sugar Mar- ket has been very limited, chiefly for want of a better assortment. Buyers act with caution; prices remain Unaltered. The Scourge, steam-bomb vessel, will have a gal- vanic apparatus fitted communicating from the pad- die-boxes to the engine-room, to supersede the services of a man or boy in giving the orders from the deck to the engineers. A voung man, named Showell, the son of a licensed victualler at Birmingham, is charged with lulling his wife. She was found kneeling in the street, with the child in her arms, and died of a frac- ture in the head. EATDIG A RIVAL.-A gentleman of the neigh- borhood of Plvmouth had two dogs, one a very smidi pet, the other a splendid setter. The dogs were kept in the same kennel; but the setter always -evinced the strongest symptoms of jealousy when the little dog was caressed. One day the little dog was missing, and, shortly after, the setter was seized with illness, and in the course of the night died. On opening him the little dog, almost entire, was found in his stomach. Dog, therefore, had eaten dog.- Plymouth Journal. REMARKABLE FRMALH.—Died, the 14th inst., upon the estate of Lady Headly, within a few milesof Traiee, aged 112, Julia Hickey. She retained full possession of her faculties up to the early part of the present year. There are now living of her de- scendants 84 grandchildren, 160 great grand- children, and four great great grandchildren CHEAP BREAD.-Doctor Seward, of Cahirconlish, sent to this city some samples of as good and sweet bread as need be eaten made in the following pro- portions -311b of wheaten flour, I illb of potato starch, produced three loaves weighing 61b., 5oz the cost of which, inclusive of every expense, was G^d.—Dublin Packet MURDER AND ROBBERY.—A horrible transaction has occurred within a few miles of Coventry. An old and eccentric fanner, named Thomas Tranter, slept at a place called Docker's Gate. No one lived with him and the house having been fastened up for a couple of days, it was at length forcibly entered by the neighbours, and the farmer was fotind lying dead on the floor, in a pool of blood, with a large carpenter's axe wedged into the back part of his skull. The poor old man must have been chopping some wood, as a piece half cut up was found at his feet when the body was discovered. Sixpence was found in his pocket. The drawers were all forced open, and whatever money they contained was taken away. No IClue has been obtained of the villains. To THE POOR ON POTATOES.—The following is a copy of a hand-bill which has just been extensively circulated in the north of the country:—" Before you eook your potatoes, cut off the crown with as many jeyes as you can and preserve it for planting. Cut away the diseased part of the potatoe and dry :the good parts before the fire, and preserve them in gs, and hang them up in the room you live in, but keep the crowns and the parts cut from the diseased potatoes separate, and look them over frequently. Plant all your small potatoes now whole, in the same way you do in spring, only deeper to be protected :from the frost, but use no manure. Be careful to let your potatoes be perfectly dry previously to storing •them." —Nottingham Journal. MELANCHOLY CATASTROPHE.—We have to re- cord, this week, as mournful an event as it has for some time fallen to our lot to publish.-Captain 'Coleman, formerly of the Jane and Barbara, of this :port, but who lately took a vessel out from Newport to Quebec, arrived with her at Gloucester last week. The captain and his wife retained, during their brief stay at Gloucester, their home on board, and on Monday night they retired to sleep in their cabin, wttich was unhappily heated by a pan of charcoal. In the morning Captain Coleman's brother went on board, by appointment, to meet them, for the purpose of escorting Mrs. Coleman to Bristol. On going to the cabin he found the door shut, and on opening it, was horrified to perceive Captain Coleman lying on -the floor with h;s bead close to the door, insensible and apparently dead, whilst his wife was sitting up in bed, in the act, as it would seem, of dressing herself, as she had the strings of her petticoat in her hands as if endeavouring to tie them round her waist, but she was quite dead and cold the one having been nearly, and the other altogether stifled by the noxious fumes of ti'w? charcoal. Captain Coleman was in- stastiy conveyed to the Gloucester Infirmary, where lie yet lies in a most precarious state. Captain Cole- man was well known in Bristol, and with his ill-fat d Jady, was respected and esteemed by all who had the ptea&ure of their acquaintance. Seven young chil- dren remcinto bewail the loss of an affectionate rand tender mother, and to pray that to that heavy and irreparable misfortune there be not added that of the further loss of their remaining parent, who, as we stated above, is still within the jaws of death.— iBristol Gazette. The Government are prosecuting in Scotland equally, though more quietly than ill Jreland, the investigations necessary to obtain satisfactory evidence of the state of the ci»j<s of grain and potatoes. A circular letter has been addressed by the Lord Advocate to every parish minister in the kingdom for accuiate returns on the subject, which is au admirable expedient for the attain- ment of truth. A hoy in London last week, concealing ignited fire- works about his person on the approach of a police- man, an explosion took place, and the poor lad was so dreadfully burned that death ensued. AN AMERICAN WELL.—A practical and scien- tific gentleman offers 30,000 dollars to sink an Ar- tesian well in Boston to the depth of 1700 feet, by which it is estimated that more than 1,000,000 gallons of the very best water can be thrown in the city every day, and to a height at least 100 feet above the sur- face of the earth, An effort is about to be made to raise the money by subscription. WEYMOUTH, Nov. 24.—An immense quantity of herrings was caught this morning in Weymouth Bay. From inquiries made from the fishermen, I learn that there were upwards of 500,000 caught in the space of a few hours. One net in a single haul brought to shore from 150.000 to 200,000, and it was with some difficulty they secured them without breaking their net. Two or three small sailing vessels have taken large quantities to Portsmouth, from whence we pre- sume many of them will be dispatched to London; others have gone inland. They are said to be fine fish, and are selling at Is. 6d. per hundred. THE MILITJA. We have authority for stating that her Majesty's government have issued orders for 42,000 sets of accoutrements for the militia of the English counties, the whole to be ready by the 1st of March next. This order is supposed to he prelimi- nary to a change or revision in this department, it being, as we stated some weeks since, in contempla- tion to abolish the ballot and to raise the regiments by beat of drum. We are also enabled to state that the officer in command of the pensioners belonging to the Ipswich district has received orders to select ten men from this force capable of giving instruction at drill, to be ready to assist in training the Suffolk militia, when their services shall be required. The destination of the militias, when embodied, is sup- posed to be Ireland.—Ipswich Journal. AMALGAMATION OF RAILWAY INTERESTS.— It is stated upon good authority that the North London Junction Railway Company and the Eastern Counties Railway have adopted measures which will advance their mutual interests. It has been resolved by the contracting parties that a branch line shall be made from some point on the Eastern Counties Railway, in the parish of Bow, to the North London line at Isling- ton. Thus the Eastern Counties obtain a western terminus at Paddington, and the North London Junction a powerful ally. It is now, therefore, certain that a continuous and unbroken line will he formed from the terminus of the Great Western at Paddington to the Eastern Counties a link which in point of fact connects the East and West of England. INCONVENIENCE OF A BAD CHARACTER.—A mortal fever prevailed on board a ship, and a negro man was appointed to throw the bodies overboard. One day, when the captain was on deck, he saw the negro dragging out of the forecastle a sick man who was struggling violently to extricate himself from the negro's grasp, and remonstrating bitterly against the cruelty of being thrown into the sea alive. What are you going to do with that man ?" said the captain. Going to throw him overboard, massa, cause he dead Dead you scoundrel," said the captain, don't you see he moves and speaks ?" Yes, massa, I know he say he no dead, but he always lie so, nobody never knows when to believe him HURRICANE AND THUNDER-STORM.—On Wed- nesday this city was visited with a perfect huiricane from the south. In the Castle-green it was almost impossible to stand upright, umbrellas were turned inside out, and the gusts of wind were quite resist- less. The weather was at the same time rather close, and at eight o'ciock a flash of lightning, the most vivid that we ever witnessed, followed instantly by a terrific clap of thunder, burst unexpectedly upon the city. This was followed by another of a similar character, accompanied with torrents of rain, after which all was still, and the sky became cloudless. We have heard of one or two persons being stunned for a while by the lightning, but nothing very serious. -Hereford Journal. NEW INVENTION FOR PRESERVING TIMBER FROM FIRE.-An invention has recently been pa- tented by Mr. Raye, of South Castle-street, Liverpool, for preserving timber from fire, dry or wet rot, and destruction by insects. The patentee submitted some of the wood, prepared according to his process, to a public trial of its fire-resisting properties, at the Police-yard, Clarence-street, Manchester on Friday, when Mr. Brotherton, M.P., Mr. Alderman Harvey, Mr. Rose, superintendent of the fire-engine depart- ment, and a few other gentlemen were present. The merits of the invention were tested in the following manner:-A number of pieces of pitch pine, said to be prepared according to the patent, each about two feet long, and measuring about an inch by an inch and a half on the planed surfaces, were connected together at one end, the other ends resting upon a piece of prepared plank, so as to represent the rafters or roof timbers of a house and the same number of pieces of wood in an unprepared state were similarly arranged. Beneath each of these roofs a quantity of wood shavings was placed and ignited, and the fires were fed from time to time, as the shavings burned. A constant fire was kept under the prepared wood for twelve minutes, the wind at the same time causing the flames to curl round the different pieces, notwith- standing which they showed no appearance of being in flames, nor exhibited any signs of red heat, although by the end of that time each piece was more or less charred, some of them to the depth of a quarter of an inch or more below the original surface, and others in a less degree, in proportion to the ex- tent to which they had been exposed to the action of the flames The unprepared wood, as a matter of course, blazed, and was nearly consumed within the same time, although the fire under it was fed less often than the other. NOBLE INTREPIDITY.—About the middle of October last, the bark Helen, Capt. Clayton, of this port, left Quebec on her homeward voyage, with a cargo of timber. The weather proved favourable till towards the end of the month, when it began to blow a stiff gate from the eastward. Early on the morning of the 31st it increased in violence, but the vessel, under double-reefed topsails, rode gallantly on; and, as she was stout and trim-built, the crew felt little fear. About half-past eight o'clock, while off the east end of one of the Newfoundland banks, they discovered a vessel less fortunately situated; and Captain Clayton was not so selfishly concerned for the safety of his own ship as to have no sympathy with the crew of another, seemingly in a most perilous state. He hailed the vessel and asked if they had any boat which mi4lit bear them on board the Helen? The answer was in the negative, accompanied with an earnest prayer that he would do his best to save them. Captain Clayton hesitated for a little what to do. The vessel was waterlogged, without a rudder, and her mizenmast and foremast carried away, and if he abandoned her to her fate she must soon be buried with all her crew beneath the billows; on the other hand, if he ordered some of his own men to push off in a boat and attempt their rescue, they might perish, and his own vessel would be left with too few hands to work her with efficiency. In this dilemma he placed a boat at the disposal of any of his crew who would volunteer as a forlorn hope to the ill-fated vessel. Three men, without hesitation, offered them- selves. We feel pleasure in recording the names of the men who could thus cast aside all ideas of per- sonal safety, that they might at least make an effort to rescue their fellow-creatures from a watery grave. The men who acted thus nobly were Daniel Mearns, second mate, a native of the north of Scotland Jas. M'Kenna, the carpenter; and John Martin, of Bel- fast. Without much loss of time they entered a small two-oared boat, the only one they could com- mand, and rowed onto the wreck, which they reached after encountering a host of dangers. The ship hung heaving on the verge of death," and the crew, in number 22, were standing on the poop, their voices rising loud above the roar of the tempest, entreating deliverance. Seven of them were got without acci- dent into the boat, and the captain of the vessel, which proved to be the Harrison, of London, told the boatmen to return for the others and he would reward them. But they did not require a pecuniary induce- ment to stimulate them in their mission of mercy. Again and again they returned to the Harrison, and at length every individual was placed in comparative safety on board the Helen. A poor cat, too, it is worth while mentioning, which had shared the fate of the crew, also participated in the deliverance. The storm raged with increasing violence all the day and during the following night, and there is no doubt that the Harrison must have sunk very soon after her crew had been rescued. The Harrison had been in a disabled state for nearly a week previous to the 31st, and the storm of that day made the wreck complete. The crew had been on short allowance for some time, but there was no fear of immediate famine, as they had luckily a good stock of buscuit and beef, the lat- ter of* which was stowed in a sto iv-house" on the mainmast. Their joy at being saved was, it may be conceived, extreme, and the captain, on reaching the deck of the Helen, fell upon his knees and openly ex pressed his gratitude to Heaven for their wonderful deliverance. About the 10th instant the Helen fell in with a vessel bound for Greenock, which relieved her of nine of the crew of the Harrison, as the provi- sions of so many men pressed rather closely on the supplies. On Monday last the Helen reached the port of Belfast, where the captain of the lost vessel acknowledged the services of the three men who had acted so heroically, by giving each of them a handsome douceur in money, as lie promised,—Banner of Ulster. Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart., has given f200 to build national schools at Ruahon. Workmen are employed upon the Gosport fortifi- cations, putting them in a state of efficient defence. The League boast that they have secured four counties, at an expense of £ 300,000. It is not true that they have secured four counties, but grant it for argument's sake, a majority in the House of Commons will at the same rate cost them three millions, and supposing the thing done, the majority would be equally divided between abolitionists and fixed duty men, so as to split into two minorities, each less than the present.— Standard. AFFECTING INCIDENT IN HUMBLE LIFE.-A married man, named Nathan Fowell, aged 40, was found, on Saturday morning last, in a field at North- owram, in a dying state; all efforts to save him were of no avail, and he died some hours after. It is sup- posed, from a letter found in a box belonging to him, that he died from poison, administered by himself. Fowell was a eomb-brooch maker, well known in Bradford, and he disappeared from amongst his friends about Monday week. Nothing was heard of him till after his death. Poverty, and it would s.?em from his own sad account, domestic trouble (arising from the misconduct of his wife) have latterly em- bittered, and ultimately shortened his life. On his person was found a note addressed to his brother, at Keighley, and stating that in his box would be found a letter explaining the cause of his melancholy end. The letter was addressed to his wife, and written in pencil.—Halifax Guardian. THE ALLEGED MURDERS ON BOARD THE TORY. -On Monday, Mr. Broderip, the presiding magis- trate at the Thames Police-office, stated that he had received two letters from the governor and surgeon of the Westminster House of correction, relating to Captain Johnstone, of the Tory, who stood remand- ed till Tuesday, on three charges of wilful murder on board the Tory. The worthy magistrate then read the letters, and then addressed Inspector Evans, jun., of the Thames Police, and said that in conse- quence of the illness of the pri oner he should fur- ther adjourn the case until Tuesday, the 2nd of Dec., on which day, if the prisoner was sufficiently reco- vered, he would be again brought before him, and the investigation proceeded with. He directed Mr. Evans to make known to the prisoner's solicitor and other parties connected with the case that the inquiry was postponed, and summon the necessary witnesses to attend on the 2nd of December. The prisoner stands remanded on three charges of wilful murder. On the next examination he will be also charged with cutting an I wounding six of the crew, named Julian Cordivialla, Stephen Cone, Thomas Gair, Joseph Morris, Allison, and Johnson. The female passen- gers, Mrs. Blewitt and Mrs. Thompson, were in attendance at the court this day. They will be examined as witnesses on the 2nd of December. Mr. Broderip asked Mr. Evans what was the condition of the wounded man, Morris, on board the Dreadnought Hospital ship ?—Mr. Evans.—He is much better, sir. HORRIBLE.—A sad tragedy took place at Dyffryd, near Oswestry, on Friday. An elderly woman named Rider, lately a pauper in the Ellesmere Union Work- house, but lately taken to reside with her son and a sickly daughter, is the savage perpetrator. It appears that some slight altercation took place between the mother and her daughter, who is 22 years of age, in consequence of the former being prevented leaving the house. The poor victim, aware of her parent's propensities when at large, locked the door of the cottage, whereupon the wretch attacked her with the first weapon she could lay her hands on, and after- wards possessed herself of a broomhook; she then cut and hewed away with all her might, literally scalping the powerless girl, and otherwise inflicting on her arras and body the most dreadful wounds; the poor thing all this time praying for mercy, and offering to give up the key to her brutal assailant. Nature at length gave way, the fiendish monster dragged her all but dead offspring into an adjoining apartment. The cries of the poor sufferer being at last heard, the son was fetched home, and on going to the door saw a stream of blood running over the threshold. With assistance he succeeded in forcing the door, when such a scene presented itself as was seldom ever before witnessed. Portions of the flesh from the head, with locks of hair attached, and pools of blood, &c., covered the floor, and one instrument was found, amongst the rest, covered with gore. This was a broom handle, and appears to have been last used. On searching about the billhook was found secreted in an oven. The young woman is still living, but is not expected to last long.—Shrewsbury Journal. NEWFOUNDLAND.—It is a fact worthy perhaps of a passing notice, that the whole of the land in and about the neighbourliood of Conception Bay—very probably the whole island-is rising out of the ocean at a rate which promises at no very distant day mate- rially to affect, if not render useless, many of the best harbours which we have now on the coast. At Porte- de-Grave a series of observations have been made, which undeniably prove the rapid displacement of the sea level in that vicinity. Several large flat rocks, over which schooners might pass some 30 or 40 years ago with the greatest facility, are now approaching the surface, the water being scarcely navigable for a skiff. At a place called the Cosh, at the head of Bay Roberts, upwards of a mde from the sea-shore, and at several feet above its level, covered with 5 or 6 feet of vegetable mould, there is a perfect beach—the stones being rounded, of a moderate size, and in all respects similar to those now found in the adjacent land-washes.—Nervf oundland Times. DELIVERY OF BONDED GOODS.-A. question of some importance to the wine and spirit trade occurred a short time since with respect to the delivery of liquids from the vaults or warehouses of the docks after the duty has been regularly paid thereon, and the order issued for their delivery. A party, a licensed dealer, having paid the duty upon two casks of brandy, one lying in the London and the other in the St. Katharine's Docks, sent his cart to those places for their removal into his private stock. His man having first obtained the one lying in the St. Katha- rine's Docks, proceeded to the London Docks for the other, and while the cask at that place was being hoisted from the vault, he backed his cart towards the spot, but negligently omitted, in removing the tail of the vehicle, to secure the cask already therein, the consequence being that on a sudden jolt, the cask of brandy, the quantity of which was between 50 and 60 gallons, rolled out of the cart on to the ground, and the head springing, the whole of the valuable contents were lost. As the brandy was not actually out of the bonding premises, it was expected that the duty, which, as is well known, is, in the instance of that particular article, five times the amount of the value of the spirit itself,would have been returned,as none of the spirit had gone into consumption, the whole being irretrievably lost, and numerous applications have been made by the party both to the customs and subsequently to the higher departments of the government, but without effect. If the accident had occurred in the course of the delivery of the cask out of the vault by the offi- cers of the crown or the dock company, then, on proof to the satisfaction of the heads of the depart- ment that the spirit was destroyed, and that the mis- chance occurred by pure accident, in the presence of the officers of the revenue, the duty would have been allowed under the provisions of the Act of Parliament relating particularly to such matters; but in this instance the brandy had actually been delivered out of the custody of the crown, and was, whilst in the possession of the carman, taken into the adjoining docks, solely to suit the convenience of the owner, and not for the purpose of shipment for exportation or removal coastwise, and, therefore, although the accident took place in the presence of the revenue officers and the dock company's servants, and not the slightest doubt could be entertained that the whole of the spirit was entirely lost, yet it was considered that the accident was solely attributable to the negli- gence of the carman in not properly securing the cask before he removed the tail of the cart, and that, therefore, the matter did not come within the provi- sions of the Act referred to, nor was the owner enti- tled to any relief, any more than if the accident had taken place out of the docks or on his own premises. Herald. PUBLICATION OF MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS.—In conse- quence of the non-publication of the state of the poll at Carmarthen on the next day but one after the contest, as required by the Act, Mr. justice Patteson has on appli- cation decided that there must be a new election. IMPORTANT DECISION RELATIVE TO THE HIRE OF FARM SERVANTS.—At Aberayon Petty Sessions, last week, Rees Davies was summoned by John Thomas, for not entering on the service of a neighbour, for whom he had hired him. It appeared from the evidence of John Thomas, that he hired Rees Davies on the 11th instant, at one of the neighbouring fairs, at the yearly wages of £7 10s, as the agent of his neighbour, and gave him Is. to bind the bargain. A few days afterwards, Rees Davies came to John Thomas, returned the shilling, and- declined ratifying the engagement, hiring himself, by written contract, to Mr. Evan Evans. On the part of Rees Davies it was contended that the Court had no power to interfere between him and John Thomas, as the contract was not in writing, and in support of which, 4 Geo. 4th, cap. 34, sec. 3, was quoted.—The Bench overruled the objection, and committed Rees Davies, in default of his not going to his place, to two months' im- prisonment and hard labour. RELIC OF PRINCE CHARLES EDWARD STUART.—A gentleman in Zetland has in his possession a snuff-box which belonged to Prince Charles Edward Stuart. This article is highly prized by its owner, who, about thirty years ago, received it from his father, in the Island of Bute. It is rather well finished, is neatly mounted with silver, and has at the bottom, what in the Highlands is caUed ft scru^ga$,—John Q'Great Jonrnffh OLD BAILEY DOINGS IN 1728.-Yesterday the sessions began at the Old Bailey. (London) One How was indicted for a street robbery, but refused to plead to the indictment; whereupon the court told him th. fatal consequences of such refusal, namely, that he must be miserably pressed to death, and indulging him with time to consider of it till this morning. When again brought up, he pleaded guilty, and was condemned to death.- Whitehall Evening Post, August 29, 1729. GETTING INTO TIIE GAZETTE.—In the London Gazette of Friday appeared 300 railway notices. Such projects as do not appear in that publication may be considered as hors de eombat. The Gazette people, pressed by the unusual number of advertisements, gazed wildly at the come and coming heap. At last, in utter despair, they issued the awful fiat-" No notice received after three o'clock on Tuesday."—At half-past two what a rush at the Gazette Office, Cannon Row, Westminster! Lawyers'clerks running to and fro ;—lawyers themselves. full of anxiety, peering here and there, to see that their cads had been in time Directors, awful in their dignity at the Board," fluttering around the precincts to be satisfied that the notices were in time for the Gazette;- and even Secretaries, gentlemen who delight in the appendage of Esquire" to their name, hovering about the office, to be the first to announce in Moorgate-street the all's right—the notices will be in As many as could, were in time. Some were late—a few, we fear, were wilfully slow (delighted to make a pretest of harsh- ness on the part of the Gazette people,") and not sorry to throw the blame off their own shoulders, & those of other people. The Gazette was inexorable. After three o'clock no advertisement was received. We happen to know that, in some bona fide instances, where the parties really were anxious for the insertion of the notices, and were just three minutes too late, they offered £300, i:500, jElOOO, for the reception of the noticell-but it was of no use. NOVEL APPLICATION OF IRON IN GOTHIC AacHI- TEcruitE.—The use of iron is still greatly extending in Manchester, where the principles of its application are well understood, and all the casting establishments are in active operation. The most novel application of this material is in the Independent chapel erecting in Sal- ford, near the Boughton Bridge, from the designs of Mr. Richard Lane. The roof is framed of cast-iron principals, curved, and meeting at the top in a Gothic arch. Each half is in two pieces, firmly bolted together, and the principals are connected by tie-roads. The feet of the principals are spread out, and rest on blocks of stone, but are supported by iron columns, built into the wall, which stand upon stone corbels at the ground level. There are shoes, cast Oil the principals, to receive the purlins. There will be a school-room underneath. There are two heights of iron columns, the upper f up- porting the iron girders for the galleries. These gir- ders are curved in form, so as to approach nearer to the section of the steps of the galleries. The roof may be made a very effective feature; and that a similar treat- ment of iron work in Gothic architecture is desirable, has been pointed out in former numbers of this journal. The Builder.
