MY OLD HOME. It was a vision of my home Ihat rose before my gaze, As, 'midst thp watches uf thp night, I dreamt of other days; A vision of my early home-how beautiful and bright! But yet a sadness mingled with the image of delight. I thought I stood within its walls; the sunsbine shone as gay As on that murn 1 look'd my lajit, then ture myself away; The sheltering trees, the grassy plat which stretch'd before the door, Were still as freshly green and bright as they had been of yore. I saw the spots where once we played, the walks where once we ranged, And stili t)1(>Y look'd the same to me, my heart alone was changed The churchyard walls stood gray and cold beneath the noonday sun, And shadows rested on the graves, as they of old had done. And 'midst the,e graves I noted one, though it was 110t alone; The mellow sunshIne softly play'd upou the sculptured stone, 1\1;- muther's voice wa3 in mine ears, 1!S in my childhood's day, ¡-¡he told me of a Saviour's love, and tanght my lips to pray. I saw each dear familiar spot. each old familiar thing; I fpH once more upon my cheek my native breeze of Spring And gladsome murmurs reach'd mine l'ar of many an ancient strain, And kindred voices welcomed me unto my home ag,1in. My father, with his snowy hair, sat in his wonted place, And smiles of fondest greeting shone on that beloved face; A 11<1 sister forms came crowding ronnd, in happiness and tears, To bid nie welcome with the looks I loved in other years, Por many (lays had passed away since I had last been there, And I had left my father's hearth to seek another's care; Had Jeft my childhood's sunny spots, in other scenes to roam, And fvr another's love gave up my loved ones and my home. There was no change in aught I saw; no envious shade had pass'd Above those fair and open brows, since I had seen them last. The laughing eye, the sunny smile. did still with them remain But though they look'd the same to me, I did not feel the same, Fur life to me had oped his page, and though no grief had shed Its dark and chilling bitterness on my devoted head, ] felt this world had other scenes than those I once had known, And I must share in other's cares. if I would shun my own. And such is life its changing scenes, its sunshine and its gloom. Must chequer still the veiled path which leads us to the tomb. All! happy still that unto us the cheering hope is given, To find, secure from eartbly change, a lasting home in Heaven. Tait's Magazine. C. A. W.
THE KNIGHT OF GWYNNE.
[At the request of a correspondent we give the follow- ing extract from a work lately issued, and noticed by us in our last number, with the view of presenting to the public a sample of the style in which it is written.] THE KNIGHT OF GWYNNE. CHAP. 1.—A FIRE-SIDE GROUP, It wa3 exactly forty-five years ago, that a group consisting of three persons drew their chairs around the fire of a handsome dinner-room in Merrion-square, Dublin. The brilliantly-lighted apartment, the table, still encumbered with decanters and dessert, amI the sideboarrl resplendent with a gorgeous service of plate, showed that the preparations had been made for a much larger party. the last of whom had just taken bis de- parture. Of the three who now drew near the cheerful blaze, more intent, <1, it seemed, on confidential intercourse than the pleasures of the table, he who occupied the centre, was a tall, and singularly nandsome man of some six or seven and twenty years of age, his features, perfectly classical in their regularity, conveyed the impression of one of a cold and haughty temperament, unmoved by sudden impulse, but animated by a spirit daringly ambitious. His dress was in the height of the then mode, and he wore it with the air of a man of fashion and elegance. This was Lord Castlereagh, the youthful Secretary for Ireland, one whose career was then opening with eyery promise offuture distinction. At his right hand sat, or rather lounged, in all the careless- ness of habitual indolence, a young man some years bi" junior, his dark complexion and eyes, bis aquiline features and short thin upper lip almost resembling a Spanish face; his dress was the uniform of the Foot Guards, a costume which wen became him, anel set off to the fullest advantage a figure of perfect sym- metry; a manner of careless inattention in which he indulged contrasted strongly with the quick impatience of his dark glances, and the eager rapidity of his utterance, when momen- tarily excited, for, the Honourable Dick Forester was only cool by training, and not by temperament, and, at the time we speak of, his worldly education was scarcely more than well begun. The third figure, strikingly unlike the other two, was a man of fifty, or thereabouts, short and plethoric, his features, rosy and sensual, were lit up by two gray eyes, whose twinkle was an incessant provocative to laughter, the moutb was, however, the great index to his character it was large and full, the under lip slightly projecting, a circumstance perhaps acquired in the long habit of a life, where tbe tasting function had been actively em ployed, for Con Heileman was a gourmand of the first water, and the most critical judge of a vintage the island could hoast; two Imgers 01 either hand were inserted m the capacious pockets of a white vest, while his head jauntily leaning to one side, he sat tbe very ideal of self-satisfied ease and contentment; the" aplomb"-why should there be a French word for an Englisb quality ?—he possessed, was not the vulgar ease of a presuming or under-bred man, far from it, it was the impress of certain gifts, which gave him an acknowledged superiority in tbe society he moved in. He was shrewd without over-caution, he was ready-witted, but never rash; he possessed that rare com- bination, of quick intelligence with strong powers of judgment, and, above all, he knew men, or at least, such specimens of the l'ace as came before bim in a varied lUe, well and thoroughly. If he had a weak point in his character, it was a love of popu- larity not that vulgar mob won hip, whlch some men court awl seek after, no, it was the estimation of his own class and set he desired lo obtain he was proud of his social position, and nervously sensitive in whatever might prejudice or endanger it. His enemies, and Con was too able a man not to have made some, said, that his low origin was tbe secret of bis nature, that his ambiguous position in iIOciety demanded exertions un- caned for, from others less equivocally circumstanced, and that, Mr. Heffernan >vas, in secret, very far from esteeming the highl- and titled associates Jwith whom his daily life brought him in contact. If this were the case, he was assuredly a consummate actor, no man ever went through a 10llger or more searching trial unscathed, nor could an expression be quoted, or an act mentioned, in which he derogated, even for a moment, from the nabits of" his order." You never did the thing better in your life, my lord," said Con, as the door closed upon the last departing guest; •' you hit oil" Jack Massy to perfection and as for Watson, though he said nothing at the time, I'll wager my roan cob against Deane Moore's hackney, long odds I iancy, that you find him at the Treasury to-morrow morning, witb a sly request for five minutes' private conversation." c, I'm of your mind, Heffernan. I saw that he took the bait; indeed, to do the gentlemen justice, they are all open to convic- tion," You certainly cannot blame them," said Con, if they take a more coneiliatincr view of your lordshlp s opinions, when assisted by such claret as this-thIs is old '72, if I mistake not," They sold it to me as such, but I own to you I'm the poor- est connoisseur in the world as regards wine. Some one re- marked this evening that the '9'J was richer in bouquet." It was Edward Harvey, my lord, I heard him, but that was the year he got his baronetcy, and he thinks tbe "lUll never shone so brightly before; his father wu sellini Balbriggan stockings when this grape was ripening, aud now. the son has more than one foot. on the steps of tbe Peerage." This was said with a short, quick glance beneath the eyelids, and evidently more as a feeler, than wltb any strong conviction of its accuracy. No Government can afford to neglect its supporters, and the acknowledgments must be Proportioned to the sacrifices as wpll as to the abilities of the individuals who second it." "By Jove! if these gentlemen are in the market," said Forester, who broke sllence for tbe first time, 1 don't wonder at tbeir price being a high one; in consenting to the 'Union' they are virtually voting theIr own annihilation." By no means" said the Secretary, calmly, the field open to their ambition is imperial and not. provincial; the English Parliament will form an arena for tbe dlsplay of ability, as wide surely as this of Dublin. Men of note and capacity will not be less rewarded, the losers will be the smalt talkers, county squires of noisy politics, and crafty lawyers of no principles tbey will perbaps be obliged to remain at home, and look aftpr their own affairs but will the country be the worse lor that, while the advantages to trade and cummerce are inconceivable I agree with you said Con; we are likely to m- crease our expurt:5, by sending every clever fellow out of the country." '.Vhy not, if the ul.trkl,t be a better one Wouldn't you sp • re us a few luxuries for home consump- tion ? ii'1 Con, as he smacked his lips and looked at his g.as.s through the candle. His lordship paid no attention to the remark, but taking a small tablet from his waistcoat pocket seemed to study its n tenK. kre we certain of Cuffee; is he pledged to is. Ilefleman ?' '• Yes, my lord, he has no help for it, we are sure of him he owe? the Crown eleven thousand pounds, anI says, the onH ambition he possesses, is to make the debt twelve, and nevr pay it." What of that canting fellow from the North ?—Newland." "He accepts your terms conditionally, my lord," said Con, with a sly roll of his eye; if the arguments are equal to your liberality, lie will vote for you, but as yet, he does not see the advantages of a Union." '■ Not fee them said Lord Castlereagh, with a look of irony, why did you not let him look at them from your own windows, llelfernan the view is enchanting for the Barrack Depart- ment." The poor man is short-sighted," said Con, with a sigh and never could stretch his vision beyond the Custom House." "lie it so, in the devil's name; a commissioner more or less shall never stop us ''What a set of rascals," muttered Forester between his teeth, as he tossed off :t bumper to swallow his indignation. Well, Forester, what of your mission have you heard from your friend Da cy ? Yes; 1 have his note here he cannot come over just now, but he 11,15 given me an introduction to his father, and pledges himself 1 shall be well received. AVha' Darey is that ?" said Heffernan. The Knight of Gwynne," said his lordship; do you know him ?. 1 believe, my lord, there is not a gentleman in Ireland who could not say yes to that question, w hile west of the Shannon, Maurice Darey is a name to swear by. We want such a man much," said the Secretary, in a low, distinct utterance "some well-known leader of public opinion is of great value just now. How does he vote usually ? I see his nam.1 in the divisions." 011 he rarely eome3 up to town, never liked Parliament, but when he did attend the House, he usually sat with the op- position, but without linking himself to party, spoke and voted independently, and, strange to say, made considerable impres- sion by conduct which in any other man would have proved an utter failure.' Did he speak well. then ?" For the first five minutes you could think of nothing but his look and appearanee; he was the handsomest man in the house, a li tie too particular perhaps in dress, but never finical asTie went un, however, the easy fluency of his language, the grace and elegance of his style, and the frank openness of his statements, carried his hearers with him and many who were guarded enough igainst the practised powers of the great speak- ers, were entrapped by the unstudied, manly tone of the Knight of Gwynne. You say truly, he would be a great card in your hands at this time.' We must have him at his own price, if he has one. Is he rich ?' lie has an immense estate, but, as I hear, greatly encum- bered but don't think of money with him, that will never do." ''What's the bait, then ? Does he care for rank? Has he any children grown up?" One son and one daughter Rre all his family and as for title, I don't think he'd exchange that of Knight of Gwynne for a Dukedom. His son is a lieutenant in the Guards." "Yes; and the best fellow in the regiment," broke in Forester. In every quality of a high-spirited gentleman, Lionel Darey has no superior." The better deserving of rapid promotion," said his lordship, smiling significantly. I should be senary to offer it to him, at the expense of his You must see him, however, JJICK, said the Secretary, there is no reason why he should not be with us on grounds of conviction. He is a man of enlightened and liberal mind and surely, will not think the worse of a measure, because its advocates are in a position to serve his son's interests." "Hthat topic he kept very studiously out of sight, it were all the more prudent," said Con, drily. "Of course: Forester will pay his visit, and only advert to the matter with caution and delicacy; to gain him to our side is a circumstance of so much moment, that 1 say carte blanche' for the terms." I knew the time that a foxhound would have been a higher bribe than a blue ribbon, with honest Maurice but it's many years since we met, now, and Heaven knows what changes time may have wrought in him. A smile and a soft speech from a pretty woman, or a bold exploit of some hare-brained fellow, were sure to find favour with him, when he would have heard flattery from the lips of Royalty without pride or emotion. His colleague in che county is with us has he any influence over the Knight V' Far from it. Mr. Hickman O'Reilly is the last man in the world to have weight with Maurice Darey, and if it be your intention to make O'Reilly a Peer, you could have taken no readier method to arm the Knight against you. No no if you really are bent on having him, leave all thought of a pur- chase aside; let Forester, as the friend and brother officer of young Darcy, go down to Gwynne, make himself as agreeable to the Knight as may be, and when he has one foot on the carriage step, at his departure, turn sharply round, and say, Won't you vote with us, Knight?" What between surprise and courtesy, he may be taken too short for reflection, and if he say but yes," ever so low, he's yours. That's my advice to you it may seem a poor chance, but I fairly own, I see no better one." I should have thought rank might be acceptable in such a quarter," said the Secretary, proudly. He has it, my lord, at least as much as would win all the respect any rank could confer, and besides, these new Peerages have no prestige' in their favour yet awhile, we must wait for another generation this claret is perfect now, but I should not say it were quite so delicate in flavour, the first year it was bottled. The squibs and epigrams on the new promotions are remembered, where the blazons of the Herald's College are for- gotten • that unlucky Banker, for instance, that you made a Viscount the other day both his character and his credit have suffered for it." What was that you allude to ?—an epigram, was it ?" Yes, very short, but scarcely sweet, here it is, With a name that is borrow'd, a title that's bought,' You remember, my lord. how true both allegations are With a name that ;s borrow'd, a title that's bought, Sir William would fain be a gentleman thought While his Wit is mere cunning, his Courage but vapour, His Pride is but money, his Money but paper." Very severe, certainly," said his lordship, in the same calm tone he ever spoke not your lines, Mr. Heffernan ?" No, my lord, a greater than Con Heffernan indited these one who did not scruple to reply to yourself in the House in an imitation of your own inimitable manner." Oh, I know whom you mean-a very witty person indeed, said the Secretary, smiling; and if we were to be laughed out of office, he might lead the opposition, but these are very business-like matter-of-fact days we're fallen upon. The Cabi- net that can give away blue ribbons may afford to be indifferent to small jokers but to revert to matters more immediate, you must start at once, Forester, for the west, see the Knight, and do whatever you can to bring him towards us. I say • carle blanche' for the terms I only wish our other elevations to the Peerage had half the pretensions he has and whatever our friend Mr. Heffernan may say, I opine to the mere matter of compact, which says, so much, for so much." 11 Here's success to the mission, however its negociations incline," said Heffernan, as he drained off his glass, and rose to depart; we shall see you again within ten days or a fortnight, I suppose 1" Oh, certainly, I'll n0* hnger in that wild district an hour longer than I must;" and so, with good night and good wishes, the party separated-Forester, to make his preparations for a journey, which, in those days, was looked on as something for- midable. THE LATE SIR WILLIAM FOLLETT. Blachtvood opens this month with an extremely interest- ing memoir of, or rather disquisition upon, the personal and professional character of the late Sir William Follett. The commencement of the article is a little too senti- mental about his funeral and grave, but the rest is vigorous and entertaining. The writer grapples boldly with two accusations which have been brought against Sir William's memory — bis love of money, and (which would result from that passion) his acceptance of briefs when there was no reasonable prospect of his being able to attend to them., Itoth these charges are admitted-but only for the ptirp* of showing that they formed no blot upon his name. We extract from this article the follow- ing striking and amusing anecdote No one ever ventured to c&lculate upon Sir William Follett's overlooking a slip or failing to seize an advantage. Totus teres atque rotundus must indeed have been the case which was to withstand his onslaughts. So accurate and extensive was his legal knowledge, so acute was his discrimination, so dexterous were all his movements, so lynx-eyed was his vigilant attention to what was going on, that the most learned and able of his opponents were never at their ease till after victory had been definitely announced from the Bench-from a Court of Error-or even the House of Lords. They were necessarily on the qui vive to the very latest moment. Some short time before he was compelled to relinquish practice, a certain counsel was engaged with him as junior in a case before the Privy Council, which it was deemed of great moment that Sir William Follett should be able to attend to. "I don't exactly know how I stand in the Queen's Bench to-morrow morning," said he, at the consultation late over night—" but I fear that that long troublesome case of the Railway will be brought on by at the sitting of the Court. I'm afraid I can't get him to put it off-but I'll try and if he won't, I may yet be able to settle the case before he has got far into it-for it will be very strange if all their proceedings are right." On this slender chance rested the likelihood of Sir William's attendance at the Privy Council. The next morning at ten o'clock, beheld all the counsel on both sides ready for action. You're not going to bring on the —— case this morning, are you ?" whispered Sir William Follett, as soon as he had taken his seat, to his opponent, who was arranging his papers. I am indeed, and no mistake whatever about it." Can't we bring it on to-morrow, or some day next week ? It would greatly oblige me-I really have scarcely read my papers, and. besides, want to be elsewhere." I'll see what my clients say"-and then he consulted them, and resumed—" No—my people are peremptory." Very well. Then keep your eyes wide open. I must bring you down as soon as possible, for I want to be elsewhere." 0 "Ah—I must take my chance about that"—then, tumin" round to an experienced and learned junior, he whispered- You hear what Follett says Are we really all right ?" Oh, pho! never mind him-we are as right as possible." A few moments afterwards, up rose and soon got into his oase, and very soon, also, to the end of it. The case had not been heard more than half an hour, Sir William Follett at once attentively listening to his opponent, and hastily glancing over his own papers, when he rose very quietly, and said- If my learned friend will pardon me, I think, my lord, I can save the court a very long and useless inquiry—for there is clearly a fatal objection in limine to these proceedings." Let us hear what it is," said the court. Sir William had completely checkmated his opponent I A statutory requisition had not been complied with; and in less than ten minutes' time the enemy were all prostrate-their expensive and elaborate proceedings all defeated—and that, too, permanently, unless on acceding to the terms which Sir William Follett dictated to them, and which, it need hardly be observed, were somewhat advantageous to his own client! Really this is too bad, Follett," might have been heard whispered by his opponent, as the next case was called m. Not at all—why did'nt you let it stand over as I asked you "Oh—you would have done just the same then as you have now." I dou t know that," replied Sir William Follett," with a significant smile. But why won't your people be more care- ful ?" And then turning to his junior, said—"Now for the i rivy Council!" And all this with such provoking, easy, smiling nonchalance.

ASPECT OF TIIE EEK..—- The projectors of railways are now anxiously waiting the meeting of Parliament to ascertain the probable course of action with regard to railway legislation. Tliis is the great point to which at- tention is now directed. The deposits of all those who are able to ray up will shortly have to be produced, as the preliminary step to carrying their Bills through the House, and therefore, in the course of the next week, we expect to find some little drain of cash in City quarters. We perceive that several of the companies find it to their interest to amalgamate. The Liverpool, Manchester, and Newcastle Junction, and Lancashire and Yorkshire Companies have arranged terms of cordial co-operation, by which the services of Mr. Hudson and Mr. Houldsworth are secured. Thc Direct Birmingham and Leicester, and the Leicester and Birmingham Com- panies have mutually arranged interests, so that one conip uiv shall make the line, while both companies shall participate in the profits. The Goole and Doncaster Company amalgamate with the South Yorkshire Com- pany with the view to accommodate opposing interests. The list of Railway plans deposited at the Private Bill OHiee and House of Lords up to the 31st of December, 1845, contains the titles of 7 IS lines, no fewer than 519 having disappeared since the publication of the schemes provisionally registered on the 17th November. SOUTH WALKS RAILWAY.—The contracts are being taken for various parts of the work, and will soon be concluded, when operations will commence in forming the line. We believe the first steps will be on the New- port and Cardiff Roads, romniencing about Magor, pro- ceeding through Newport on to Cardiff, Ely, and Saint Fagan's. The line about Newport is already marked out, and the surveyors are concluding the arrangements for the Cardiff district. The stations at Newport and Cardiff are as yet not decided upon. Surveyors are also permanently concluding the arrangements for the iWou- mouth line to join the South Wales line at Newport, but at present to be made only from Usk. The first sod of the Midland Great Western (Irish) Railway was raised at Dublin on Thursday week, by the Lord-Lieutenant, in the presence of a large assemblage of influential persons. A PRETENDED RAILWAY PUOJECTOR. —On Friday, in the Central Criminal Court, Benjamin Brown, a well- dressed man, aged 44, was indicted for fraudulently ob- taining a bill of exchange for f50, the property of Charles Jacobs, with intent to cheat and defraud him thereof, by appointing him clerk to a railway company, at a salary of £ 75 a year. The prisoner was sentenced to hard labour in the House of Correction for 12 months. GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY.—On Friday evening a most tieudish act was committed by some ruffian on the Great Western Railway. Shortly after the express train left Swindon, a huge stone was thrown at one of the first-class carriages. It dashed into piece? the window and struck with fearful violence against the back of one of the centre seats. Fortunately no one was sitting there, or his life must have fallen a sacrifice. A reward for the apprehension of the perpetrator of this foul deed was publicly offered the following morning. The Times exposes "the source of a calumny." In July last that journal began its warnings of impendin" danger from the railway mania. A special correspon- dent" of the Hampshire Independent imputed those warnings to corrupt motives and a desire to push parti- cular railways he asserted that Mr. D —, the managing (money) proprietor of the Times," and his son, obtained shares in a certain railway as a reward for the aid of the journal, and that they, with "a Mr. A-, who also has possession of its columns, speculated "for the fall" under cover of the same attacks. On the 2nd instant, appeared a letter to the Hampshire Independent, from the same "special correspondent, admitting that his "in- formant" had been misinformed" avowing that the charges were totally unfounded" and asking pardon of the persons calumniated. The Times has ferretted out the offender. "The author of these falsehood?, is a Mr. Edward Raleigh Moran,' who is, or was, the sub- editor of the Globe. We need say nothing of this man's character it is sufficiently known to all connected with the Metropolitan press." BROAD AND NARROW GAJJGR P, X P P, R I Ni EN I'S EX TKAOitDI N A IIY SPKED Wail HEAVY TitAlNS On Wednesday week an experiment was made upon the broad guage line between Paddington and Didcot, with a passenger traia of one hundred, and twenty font, exclusive of engine and tender. The engine employed was tae Ixion, the same that was used in the previous experiments. She weighs 22 tons, and is a six-wheel engine, with a seven feet driving wheel. The day was not a favourable day for a trial, for although there was scarcely any wind stirring, the rails were in a very greasy ttate. The 46 miles were performed in Jfi,3n.35s. or at rhe average speed of nearly 4t miles per hour. The maximum speed was 46 miles per hour. The return trip was commenced at llh. m. 10s., and in l'2h. 13111. 12s. the train had gone over the 51 miles, running the distance with one hundred and twenty tons at an arerag; speed of forty-seven mile* per hour. The maximum speed was 53( miles per hour. The fifty tons trip with the narrow guage engine, from Darlington to York, with the weather about on a par with that of this morning, was but a trifle better than this one of a hundred and twenty tons with the broad guage engine. The respective workings of the engines would stand thus: VT Ions. Miles per h. Aarrow-guage engine, between Darlington and York 50 47i broad-gnage engine between Paddingtou and Didcot .a J20 47 broad-gnage engine between Paddingtou and Oidcot 120 47 I ne maximum of sp.;ed with the 50 tons upon the narrow was 51 miles per hour; and the maximum speed upon the broad guage with 120 tons 531 per hour. So that the broa4 guage engine took 70 tons more than the narisw guage-en^ine at half a mile less per hour; the difference in the maximum speed being a quarter of & mile only. EXPERIMENTS WITH HBHoy GOODS TRAILS. On Thursday week experimental trips with goods trainll, as closely parallel as possible, with those made upon the narrow guage line between York and Darlington, were ruu upon the broad-guage line between PaJdington and Didcot. The trains were respectively of 200 and 40J tons weight, ex- clusive of the engine and tender, and the experiments with such trains were undertaken incompliance with the propnsition of those representing the narrow-guage. It was admitted by the latter that with trains of 60, 70, and 80 tons, the seven feet driving-wheel of the broad-guage engine, and the com- paratively large area of its fire-box, would produce a rate of speed which they could only hope to approach within a few miles per hour but, on the other haud, they spoke very con- fidently of being able to get a greater velocity of goods' trains of 200 and 41)0 tons than the broad-guage engine would be found able to accomplish. The locomotives selected for the experiment on Thursday was the Hercnles, a six-wheel coupled engine, with wheels of five feet diameter. She has a 16-inch cylinder, with 18 inch stroke. The area of the fire box is 97 feet, and that of the tubes 6UO feet. She is not a new engine, and had been in regular work up to the previous night, when she brought a goodn train from Didcot. The first trip was with the 200 tons train, and consisted of 14 trucks laden with coal. A first class carriage WAS attached to the train for the accommodation of those who had to note the working of the engine. It was arranged that the time should be taken from the first mile-post out of Paddington station. The train proceeded at a slow rate to the spot, and at 10h. 27m. 55i, she started to do her work. She made seven stoppages in the first 30 miles, the time lost thereby amount- ing to 4'2 minutes 30 seconds. The same number of stoppages were made in the nairow guage experiment, and the time lost inconsequence was 4J minutes 50 seconds, or 1 minute to seconds less than that lost by the broad-gauge train. TIle time during which the broad guage was in motion was 1 hour 54 minutes 36 seconds—that is, from the first to the fiftv- second mile post, which gave a speed of nearly 27 miles per hour, while the speed obtained upon the narrow guage line was 18 miles per hour only. This, however, would be a very unfair mode of comparing the trip with the one made upon the Great North of England line. There, 42 miles only were gone over, with seven stoppages; while upon the Great Western ltailway on Thursday the broad-guage engine, after performing 4-2 miles, ran another nine miles without a stoppage and the working over this additional niAe miles, which she weuld of course perform with increased rapidity, has been added to the parallel working over the 42 miles, and therefore goes to swell the average rate of travelling between the first mile-post out of Paddington and the 52d mile-post. The fair way will be to compare the working of both engines for the 42 miles, daring which they made the same number of stoppages and lost nearly the same amount of time. The 42 miles upon the narrow guage were accomplished in 2h. 14m. 20 sec., or about 18 miles per hour. The 42 miles upon the broad guage were performed in lh. 38m. 10 sec., or at a rate of about 25i miles per hour. If we allow an additional mile for the additional minutes and 40 seconds stoppage by the broad guage train, the relative rates of speed may be put down as follows Tons. Miles. Time. Narrow-goage engine 200 42 2 14 20 Broad-gMgeengine. 200 42 1 38 10 Time gained by Broad-gnage engine in 42 miles 0 36 10 Per hour.

Following closely after the Hercules was the hion pas- senger engine, with an additional 200 tons, to be attached at Didcot to the Hercules for the up-trip. The lxiol1 is not a coupled engine, and was never intended to work with heavy trains. She, however, did her work admirably to within a short distance of Slough, coming in sight of the Hercules before the latter left the stations at which she made her stoppages. Just before reaching Slough cne of her pistons broke, and the 200 tons were taken on to Didcot by a goods engine. At Didcot thetadtn trucks were added to the 200 tons train taken down by the Hercules, and the 400 tons train started b-tck from Didcot a little after four o'clock, and accomplished the journey in 2h. 8m. 20s., and the speed rather more than 24 miles per hour. The speed reached by the narrow gqage engine, with 400 tons, was about 19 miles per hour. The workings of the eneines. therefore, stand thus Tons. Kate of speed per hour.

A meeting of shareholders connected with this undertaking was held last week at the King's Arms Tavern, London, to adopt such measures as should be deemed expedient on behalf of the shareholders, in consequence of the abandonment of the scheme, and the announcement by the committee of manage ment that the affairs were in course of being wound up. Twelve o clock was the hour of meeting named in the advertisement, but after a delay of about an hour, the solicitor and secretary of the company were in attendance to give any information that might be required. In a few minutes, Mr. Daniel Whittle Harvey entered the room, and, on the motion of Mr. Stafford, was unanimously voted to the chair. Mr. W. Stafford, solicitor, whose name was attached to the advertisement convening the meeting, briefly explained the cir- cumstances under which they had met. He said his name ap- peared to the advertisement in consequence of the solicitations of various gentlemen holding upwards of .500 shares and only the day previous he had received assent to this course from a gentleman who stated that he represented 3')00 shares. From the statement made by the secretary of the company it appeared that the number of shares applied for amounted to 400 000; the uetual number being limited to 1 i->,0:)0. The letters a I' allotment were issued on the 17th of October, and four days allowed lor the payment of the deposits. Deposits on -'0,000 shares were all that were paid in. Subsequently a letter was sent to each person who had obtained allotments, requestinsr payment of 4s. per share, to cover the expenses. When tlio shareholders, therefore, who had paid their deposits, were told that 17s. Gd. per share would be retained for expenses, they very naturally felt that it was an unfair tax on them; that it was monstrously unjust to make them suffer for those who had refused to liquidate their liabilities. It seemed that it was ex- pected that the plans which the shareholders had paid for, were to be carried over to a new concern. The parties whom he represented cared not for the loss but seeing in the prospectus the names of persons of standing as a guarantee of the respecta- bility of the concern, they felt that such a meeting was necessary in order to adopt such remedy as the law laid open to them. It would be a difficult thing, single-handed, to encounter persons who held X'l.'J.OOO of the shareholders' money. The object they had now in meeting was to consider the best mode of uniting, to secure themselves from so unjust a demand, lie had accord.. in-1 v prepared a series of resolutions, which he would submit to the meeting. At r. l'arker, the solicitor to the company, said he was ready to offer any explanation which might be desired. So far from those in the management being against the shareholders in the course they were adopting in winding up the affairs, he was able to show that they were doing the best for their (the share- holders') interests. If any persons were to be blamed it was those who came to the board when the undertaking promised well, but who ran away when the cloud came. (Cries of name.") He would do so ia due time. The first letter issued by the committee requested a payment of 4s. per share. If everv one to whom an allotment had been made had honestly complied with this reasonable demand the duty of the com- mittee would have been an easy one. They should now have been in a very different position. With respect to the deeds, he thought it a great pity that shareholders should lie required to sign documents which, from their great length, it was impos- sible they could read over. lie hoped that the day was not far distant when it would be required that these should be printed and circulated amongst the shareholders, in order that they could see what they were required to bind themselves to per- form. In reference to the deeds of this company, he might state that they consisted of the common lithographic form in general use, and the only special clause inserted was one providing that the promoters of the line should be entitled to a certain number of shares at par within twelve months. He had at all times been most ready to afford information, as some gentlemen pre- sent would readily bear testimony, and he had never heard any complaint that the line was not a good one in itself. With respect to the new company, it was proposed that the share- holders of the existing company should be admitted on the pay- ment of 2s., and that the 17s. 6d. per share, now deducted as the proportion of the expenses, should be allowed in payment of the first call after obtaining the act ;-that a present deposit of 2s. would be required upon all new shares issued, and no fur- ther payment required till July, when a call of 5s. would be made. In the interval the old subscribers, for their 2s., will receive a scrip fur IDs. tid., and the new subscribers' scrip, value at ts., which would be perfectly marketable. And it was provided that any persons applying to be on the committee should be required to take at least fifty shares, and to pay down a cer: ain sum of money as a pledge for the fulfilment of his liabilities. Much had been said of those members of the pro- visional committee who had not paid up OIl their shares. At his suggestion a list had been made out and hung up in the board-room, and a mark was affixed against the names of those who had paid up. It had been suggested that the names of the defaulters should be published. As legal adviser to the com- mittee it would have been highly improper in him to recommend his clients to take any course which might subject them to an ac- tion for libel. lie would now read the names of those who had paid up, & as the above-mentioned list was accessible to all par- ties who cared not to run the risk of publication, they could easily make out a list of the defaulters. In the following list of those who had paid, the amount on which they paid was stated, and it was also necessary to explain that when the letter was issued requesting 4s. per share from the allottees, the committee wrote to the defaulting members of the committee begging ihem at least to contribute £ 30 each towards the expenses. This would explain the occurrence of that sum after the name of several persons :—Mr. Wynn Ellis, M.P., paid on 50 shares; Mr. E. Turner, M.P., £ 30; Lord E. Chichester, paid on 50 shares; Right Hon. G. L. Dawson Damer. A:30 Mr. T. Grainger, M.P., 1:30 Rev. J. H. Ashworih paid on 50 shares, Lieut.-Col. Burslem paid on 100 shares, Dr. Nicholl Carne paid on 200 shares, Mr. Henry Brown paid on 50 shares, Mr. Ebene- zer Howard paid on 200 shares, Mr. Wm. Morley paid on 50 shares, Mr. J. M. Mason paid on 20 shares, Rev. Thomas Gronow paid on 200 shares, Mr. H. Peach Buckler paid on 200 shares, Mr. Edward Swan paid on 50 shares, Mr. Alexander Prince, dEjO; Mr. Mark Beresford White paid on 20J shares, Mr. Edward Hoare paid on 5U shares, Mr. John Kymer paid on 40 shares, Mr. P. II. Morgan paid on 50 shares. On the sub- ject of the liabilities of those who had not paid up, he had thought it right to submit a case for the opinion of Mr. Shad- well, of the Chancery bar, who was of opinion that all the mem- bers were liable, and that a bill in Chancery might be filed by any member of the committee against the defaulters. He was about to adopt legal measures in accordance with that opinion, when a deputation, who represented one-third of the shares, waited on the board. They appeared to be perfectly sa'isfied with the explanation afforded, but they earnestly requested, on behalf of their constituents, that not one sixpence should be expended in legal proceedings. This had the effect of altering the position of the board, an:1, in deference to the wish of the deputation, the intention to adopt law proceedings against the defaulters was abandoned. It was but a common act of justice that he should state that one of the gentlemen (Wynn Ellis, Esq., M.P.) who stuck to the company to the last proposed that all the expenses should be borne among the committee them- selves, but this was not responded to. (Hear, hear.) The learned gentleman then proceeded to read some names of the provisional committee who had paid their shares, and stated that if any questions were to be asked him, he was willing to answer them. The statement of Mr. Parker having been favourably received, The Chairman said they had now heard the very clear state- ment of Mr. Stafford, and oa the other side that from the solici- tor to the company, which did honour to him. He only wished that every company was prepared to explain i's proceedings in as clear and as manly a style as Mr. Parker had done. He (the chairman) was but a small shareholder in this company, but he held it was the duty of every one to assist at the unravelling of these mysteries, in order that every thing should be made as public as possible, to the great end of anal oration and improve- ment in the laws relating to railway property. What was to be done in the present position of this company ? He held in his hand a statement of the liabilities of the company as it stood at present. Though in the Drillinal prospee, us the capital was set forth at £t ,500,000. in 125,000 shares of .£"20 each, wi'h a de- posit of JE2 2s., and it Was stated by the committee that 400,000 shares had been applied for, it nevertheless appeared that the actual number of shares paid on was 20,000, which had realised £ 42,860. The ques'ion naturally occurred, whence arose this failure A misapprehension was common enough in the world that the promoters of a railway scheme were to sub- scribe the money and give their time to its management, but that the persons to whom allotments are made are only to take up their shares if at a premium. His opinion was that if a per. son got an allotment of shares and was required to pay the deposits, it was no answer to say. 1 shall not pay one farthing because I cannot sell at a premium." To begin, however, with the provisional committee of the company it appeared that, of the members of the commiitee, 22 had engaged to take 200 shares each, several undertook to take a lesser number, while some altogether declined to take shares. This, it need hardly be remarked, was not an uncommon sta e of things. (A laugh.) Though the allottees in a" honest concerns (for that must be the condition understood) were bound to pay the deposits, they had undoubtedly a right to say that those whose names and posi ion induced them to become subscribers should, in the first instance, fulfil their engagements. The allottee would very na- turally say to the committee—"Before you come on me, have the honesty to pay your own." Of the 22 who agreed to take 200 shares, only five had paid up their deposits; others had taken an incredibly small number, while several had paid an arbitrary sum of S30. Now, this was a very easy and conveni- ent mode of getting rid of their liability, for if they paid upon the 200 shares, instead of £ 30 or £ 10, they would have to pay from £70 to JE80. As well might the allottees come forward and say —" Here are my five shillings." It appeared that the Glasgow deputation wished to enter into the new scheme. He wished them every success but certainly not at the expense of their brother shareholders. Mr- Parker had very disinterestedly ex- pressed a hope that there would be no legal proceedings. But this was tantamount to saying, "Pay down your 17s. 6d." Now he (the chairman) was not prepared to do any such thing. Let them for a moment look at the debit side of the account. They had in the first instance the expenses of engineers, refer- ence-books, traffic-tables, and other preliminary expenses, amounting to £ 11,047 Is. 2d. That certainly appeared a large sum. If Mr. Parker could state that but for the failure in the payment of the deposits everything was ready for parliament, then he (the chairman) should say there was a stronger case than he was aware of. Mr. Parker: That is precisely our case. The Chairman said in that case those who had failed to pay were the parties amenable for this large expenditure. He was happy to hear that a gentleman of Mr. Shadwell's eminence at the Chancery bar said that a bill could be filed then, though it probably would be as long as the line itself. (Laughter.) The common lawyers held that defaulters were amenable in the com- mon law courts, by the simple process of the creditors against the company bringing an action against the defaulting members of the committee. Why, then, should not the engineer send her Majesty's compliments to the defaulters, stating ihat he had a small claim of dEH,047 Is. 2d., and that he would feel much obliged for payment? (Laughter.) The solicitors might do the same, and so wi'h advertisements. The newspapers were not over-delicate in the matter, and letters were now flying about in all directions, calling on committee-men to make good the amount. He (the chairman) had lately been much occupied with matters of this kind, & he had never seen such an amount of ingenuity displayed before as by members of provisional committees called on to make good their liabilities. No man can by any possibility discover how his name got into the pro- spectus (A laugh.) One says he was in Paris at the time, and knew nothing about it. (Laughter.) Another recollects nothing about it, though his wife has a faint recollection that one day, when coming through Cheapside, they met an old friend, who asked, Have you any shares in the Great Welsh Central, a capital thing No," said he. Then," says his friend, write and get, if possible, on the committee of manage- ment, and you will be entitled to a larger allotment." (Great laughter.) None of them now recollected any of these things but the creditors would soon brush up their memories. Why should those shareholders who had honorably paid their depo- sits be called on to pay 17s. 6d. for those who put the company at defiance ? But he was not now going to recommend that legal steps should be immediately adopted against the defaulters. He would respectfully suggest that Mr. Stafford should withdraw his resolution for the present, and that a committee be appointed to examine into the state and finances of the company, and report to a meeting of the shareholders, to be held at the King's Arms Tavern, on Thursday, the 22d instant, at 12 o'clock. The suggestion of the hon. gentleman was immediately adopted, and a committee, consisting of the chairman, Messrs. Watts, Smith, Cocks, and Roberts, appointed for that purpose.

SUMMAllY CONVfCTIOXS. Most of our readers will coincide in the opinion ex- pressed by Mr. Serjeant Adams, assistant judge, against any extension of the power of convicting summarily. The learned judge furnished many and weighty arguments, drawn from his long experience as a criminal judge, in support of his views, any one of which, however, is with us conclusive. Summary conviction is only tolerable ifi a free country upon the ground of necessity; and is, more- over, entirely opposed to the genius of the English law. Much as the gentlemen of the grand jury, who had been drugged from their several avocations at their great per- sonal inconvenience, command our sympathy, we cannot admit that the time and attention bestowed upon the few cases submitted to them were wasted. The declara- tion of the barons against changing the laws ofUnglaud. ought to be especially preserved against any change which should deprive the country of its great bulwark of public liberty-thegrand and petty jury. The arbitrationhy jury, in conjunction with a free press, afford the most ample guarantee for the preservation of our liberties. We do not wish to disguise our opinion, that the legislature, on the ground of convenience, has extended the power of summarily convicting offenders far beyond its proper boundaries. Many difficulties and delays, no doubt, were constantly arising in the way of a complete vindication of the law; but they were, as our srreat legal comment- ator has said, the price paid for the degree of public freedom that distinguishes the institutions of this country. The following passage of Montesquieu, cited by Black- stone, will serve to illustrate our view on this subject:- In Turkey, where little regard is shown to the lives or fortunes of the subject, all causes are quickly decided the Basha, on a summary hearing, orders which party he pleases to be bastinadoed, and then sends them about their business. But in free states the trouble, expense, and delays of judicial proceedings are the price that every subject pays for his liberty and in all govern- ments," he adds, the formalities of laws increase in proportion to the value which is set on the honour, the fortune, the liberty, and life of the subject." It is almost superfluous to add anything to the weight of this eloquent passage; but we cannot forbear directing the reader's attention to the following observations of Mr. Serjeant Adams, which appear to us conclusive against the princi- pie of summary conviction. The learned judge, in answer to the regret expressed by the grand jury, that the trival cases before them had not been disposed of by the ma- gistrates, says "As far us that court was concerned, however triding or petty the cases might be which came before it, he could not for a moment think that any time which was required for their inves- tigation could be considered as having been wasted. An expe- rience of upwards of 35 yeari in this branch of the legal proceedings of the country had induced him to arrive at a very opposite conviction. Allow him to remind them, that there was no man living—let his mind be as pure as the mind of man could be conqtitated-but might, when he is in the daily habit of trying cases, of which 99 out of every 100 were cases of guilt, arrive at a resolution to adopt a given course, which might not in every instance be tempered with strict justice. The result was, that the interposition of the inquiry before a jury was re- quired to correct either his hasty opinion, or in some cases pro- bably erroneous judgment. The prisoner who was now at the bar made within 25 of 80)0 persons whom he had tried since his appointment as judge of that court, so that it would be assumed with truth that he was not without considerable expe- rience on that subject. After he had returned home from that court then- had never occurred an evening when he had not thanked Providence that there had been a jury to interpose, as it were, between himself and the parties who had been tried. It was not exactly that those gentlemen were of any value in a case turning upon a legal construction, but it was, that as a case proceeded the judge might occasionally go too quickly, to a conclusion, when the jury, by asking a simple question or two, would draw forth such an answer as at once to satisfy him that the matter required further investigation. By this simple cir- cumstance the legal mind was sometimes brought back to the consideration of facts at the very moment probably when it was absorbed by the legal points of the case only. If then it were merely in this view, the interposition and assistance of a jury was of the highest importance in the trial of every case, how- ever trifling. If every case were clear, he should then concur with the opinion just expressed by the grand jury but when he was enabled to tell them that in the various police courts there had been no fewer than 100 cases in a day disposed of, they would readily imagine that it would have been an utter impos- siblity for the magistrates to have entered into that full inquiry of each case which justice had demanded." The candid distrust of himself to which Mr. Serjeant Adams so gracefully alludes, is not likely to lessen his estimation in the public mind as a judge. Judges are men, and are as likely, if not more likely, to draw wrong conclusions from facts as those who are profoundly igno- rant of the law. But, in addition to this circumstance, no man, however zealous, can avoid falling into a certain routine discharge of his duties when called upon, as sometimes occurs, to dispose of not fewer than 40 or 50 cases daily—cases involving the liberties and property of the subject. It is idle to imagine, in the few minutes the judge can devote to the inquiry, that every case is submitted to the searching scrutiny that justice requires. There must be some instances in which the judge arrives at a wrong conclusion, and where the accused is conse- quently visited with a punishment for which the law affords no warrant. Unquestionably these mistakes, to use no stronger term, occur most frequently in cases of summary conviction; but they are not, we regret to say, altogether unknown in cases where the intervention of a jury is invoked between the judge and the accused.- Morning Herald.
NEW CHURCHES. Last week there was issued, pursuant to an order of the House of Lords, dated 5th of August last, the twenty- fifth annual report of Her Majesty's Commissionere for Building New Churches. In their last report Her Majesty's Commissioners stated, that 32G Churches had been completed, in which accommodation had been provided for 3^9,041 persons, including 210,590 free seats appropriated to the use of the poor. The Commissioners now state, that seventeen new Churches have by the aid of grants from the funds placed at their disposal, been since completed. In these seven- teen Churches accommodation has been provided for 12,618 persons, including 8,621 free seats for the use of the poor. Thus in the whole 343 Churches have now been made for 402,259 persons, including 325,217 free seats appropriated to the use of the poor. The Commissioners further report, that 36 Churches are now in the course of building, to the erection of which they have contributed pecuniary aid from the funds placed at their disposal; and that plans for 23 additional Churches have been approved of. It further appears from the report that plans for 17 new Churches are under consideration by the Commis- sioners, who have also made conditional grants, in aid of building 91) other Churches. Applications have been made to them from 36 places for pecuniary aid towards building extra Churches. The Commissioners state that they have further afforded or expressed their willingness to afford, the facilities under the Church Building Acts for obtaining additional burial grounds in 31 different parishes; and to afford the same facilities for obtaining sites for 73 new Churches and Chapels and parsonage houses. The patronage of eight new Churches and Chapels has been declared under the 1st and 2d Wm. IV, c. 38, to be severally in the heirs and assignees of the late Earl of Stamford and Warrington, the Bishop of Ripon for the time being, Andrew Lawson, Esq., M.P., Joshua Stranger, Esq., and four other gentlemen, John Partridge, Esq., Miss Marianne Pidsley, the trustees of the estates of the late Sir George W. T. Gervis, Bart., and the trustees of the Chapel called Camden Chapel, Camberwell. In all the above-mentioned cases, districts have been, or are, in the course of being assigned. The Commissioners also report that they have under their consideration application for the perpetual patron- age of new Churches which are proposed to be built and endowed, and for the assignment of districts thereto, under the last-mentioned Act. The following is a tabular summary of the report:- Number. Churches and Chapels completed 343 Ditto building 36 Plans approved. 23 Plans under consideration 7 Conditional grants for building 96 Churches and Chapels, 65 of which are included in the above items, leaving under consideration. 31 440 Consolidated districts formed under 59th of Geo.

THE ARMY. A set of regulations was issued by the Secretary-at-War, last week, intended to elevate the tone of feeling among an important class in the Army, that of non-commissioned officers and privates who may merit distinction for good conduct. The warrant is dated from Windsor, on the 19th December, and is comprised in forty-four articles. By the first it is provided, that whenever her Majesty shall sanction the grant of a commission without purchase to a non-commissioned officer, selected and recommended for this distinction by the Commander-in-chief, there shall be granted to such officer, in aid of an outfit as a commissioned officer, a sum of £ 150 if appointed to a cavalry regiment, and of £ 100 if appointed to an infantry regiment. -11. Subsequent articles provide that a sum not exceeding £t,OOO per annum be distributed in annuities, of not above jE20 each, to sergeants who may be distinguished for meritorious conduct, on the recommendation of the Commander-in-chief; and that, with the view of reward- ing meritorious soldiers when discharged, and encouraging good conduct in others, gratuity in addition to ordinary pension may be granted upon discharge to men who shall have completed twenty-one years of actual service in the infantry, or twenty-four in the cavalry. Gratuity to ser- geants who shall have served ten years as such, £ 15; corporal, seven years as such, £ 10; privates, E5. The commanding officer of every regiment to recommend such individuals while serving as he shall consider best enti- tled to the gratuity provided the amount recommended in any one year does not exceed E30 for regiments of establishment of 700 rank and file and upwards, and jE20 for regiments of lower establishment than 700 rank and file. Under the denomination of good conduct pay" a progressive increase of one penny per day, up to sixpence, and certain honourable distinctions, :ire also appointed to be given, nnder specified regulations, to soldiers who shall have completed ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, 01 thirty years of actual service. The remaining articles are occupied in detailing the regulations under which these gratuities, good conduct pay, &c., shaH be forfeited or restored or the period of service necessary to confer a title to them in certain de- grees abridged and the warrant concludes by declaring, that soldiers who were present at the battle of Water- too shall be allowed to reckon two years in addition to actual service; and thos-eenfisted before December J829 shall be allowed to reckon three years for two of actual service, after the age of 18, in East and West Indies (in other than West India regiments.)" The following are the terms referred to in article 23, 34, and 43 of the Army Warrant, by which soldiers are now able to obtain free discharges: — I Cavalry. Infantry. Under 5 years' actual service £ ;i0 £ '10 After 5 years' actual service, with one dis- tinguishing mirk 25 18 After 7 years' actual service, with one dis- tinguishing mark 15 10 After 10 actual service, with two distinguishing marks; or f 10 5 After 12 years' actual service, with on distinguishing mark 7 After 12 vears' actual service, with two distinguishing marks; or f 5 Free, After 1-1 years' service, with one dlstm, ( guishing mark J After 14 years' service, with two di-itin- Free, with the guishing marks or fright of registry After 10 years' service, with one distin- for deferred pen- guishing mark sion of 4d. a day.

PERSONS LIABLE TO BE DRAWN FOR THE MILITIA. —As it is now certain that a ballot, after the usual man- ner, will ere long be taken for persons to serve in the Militia, we will briefly state the leading circumstances which render persons liable and non-liable to be drawn. l. No person under the age of 18, or over the age of 45, is liable whether he has property or not. 2. Any party who has once been drawn cannot be drawn a second time. 3. Any person having two' children is exempt, provided he is not worth £ 100. 4. Any individual hav- ing £ 100, however large his family may be, is liable to be drawn. If disqualified by lameness, or otherwise, he m'lst find a substitute. 4. Personal disqualifications on the part of individuals not worth £100, will render them non-liable, if certified to by a suigeon. A number of persons in various towns are taking the wise precaution of enrolling themselves in clubs for the purpose of mutual assistance in the providing of substitutes. The total number of Militia Regiments in the United Kingdom is 127 of which 61 belong to England, l-l to Wales, 14 to Scotl.ind, and 3H to Ireland. In Middlesex there are six regiments; in the county of York five in Devonshire, Lancashire, and Hants, three each and in Gloucester, Cornwall, Lincoln, Somerset, Suffolk, Essex, Kent, Norfolk, and Surrey, two each. In Ireland, there are for the city of Cork one, and two for the northern and southern divisions of the county two for the county of Down one for the city and two for the county of Dublin one for the city and one for the county of Lim- erick and two for the county of Mayo. All the fourteen Welsh regiments bear the prefix of Royal, as do fifteen English, three Scotch, and four Irish. THE NEW BARRACKS AT PRESTON.—We are given to understand that the first troops that take possession of the very commodious new barracks near this town, one portion of which is now very nearly completed, will be the Lancashire militia, which are to be ballotted for in the spring of this yetr.-Preston Pilot. REGIMENTAL LIBRARIES.—The War-office has issued a circular, granting "an allowance of 20s. a year for the use of each library, and for the purpose of enabling the librarian to cover such books as may require it, and to execute small repairs, such as pasting loose sheets into books, &c., by which means it is hoped that the further preservation of the books may be seeured." THE TOWER.-Greal activity is daily manifested in the proving and fittiug up of muskets for the use of the militia they are to be on the percussion principle, and several extra armourers and labourers are employed. SERVING NOTICE FOR THE MiUTiA.—On Friday morning the parochial authorities of St. Marylebone, St. Paucras, and St. George's Hanover-square, commenced serving notices to be filled up at the inhabitants' houses for the intended ballotting for the militia. .140- THE IRON TRADE. THE IRON MASTERS' MEETINGS.—On Wednesday week, pursuant to notice, the ironmasters met at Wol- verhampton, but many of the merchants and factors who consider themselves entitled to an extension of time, did not attend, and there was comparatively little business done. Oil Saturday the masters assembled at the Town- hall, Birmingham, and although the principal houses in the trade were represented, the attendance was not so numerous as on former occasions. The meeting was nevertheless numerous and important, and indicated a buoyancy and firmness which could hardly have been expected after the varied and rather cheerless events of the last quarter. Everything betokened renewed confi- dence. There was an abundance of orders in the market, every house being in possession of more than their works can conveniently execute. In this state of demand, it is needless to say, there was no reduction, but a full confir- mation of the last quarter's prices-namely, £ 10 a ton for bar iron, and all other iron of that description in proportion. There was an advance of 10s. per ton upon Shropshire pig iron, and it now stands at £5 10s. There was no advance upon Staffordshire pig iron, and the price may be quoted at from jE.) to £5 5s. per tou. Although the advance was confined to Shropshire pig iron, there was evidently a tendency to advance 011 other articles, inasmuch as some respectable houses would not take a single order for sheets or plates at the present prices. This healthy state of the trade ii attributable to the impetus it has received from railway consumption, and the still greater demand expected from the same source. GLASGOW PIG IRON TRADE.—Firmness among holders has been very general within these few days past, and we do not hear of any iron offering under 80s., although we are not aware of any transactions at these figures Glas- gow Argus. PRODUCE OF IRON IN GREAT BRITAIN.—Of the quan- tity of iron, South Wales produces 279j thousand tons, Staffordshite 219-L, Shropshire 8q. Scotland 37|, York- shire 33, Derbyshire 22j, and North Wales si5. The quantity has increased 100,0J0 tons per annum.-Salt's Statistics.

MARK LANE.—MONDAY.—Although the show of land carriage samples of wheat was again small to-day, the trade has been extremely dull, and prices must be noted Is to 2s per quarter cheaper, a large proportion of the supply being unsold at the close of the market. In free foreigu the few sales effected have been on rather easier terms, and for free bonded or floating cargoes we have no inquiry, at low prices. Barley in good supply, and only the finest malting corn maintained value. Oats have been generally held at rather higher prices, but only in retail rates to consumers could a small advance be esta- blished. Beans without alteration. Peas of all sorts 3s. cheaper. We have to notice some further arrivals of foreign wheat, and a few thousand barrels of flour and a few fresh oats, beans, and peas.

SMITHFIELD MARKUTS. —MONDAY.-Very large im- ports of live stock have taken place from abroad, siuce Monday last viz., 250 oxen, 160 cows, 600 sheen, and 4 pigs, from Jutland, Rotterdam, and Schiedam. Al- though some of the animals have come to hand in goodi condition, a large number were beneath the middte- quality. At the outports, 60 beasts, and 50 sheep, have- been imported from Holland. To-day, we had on offer 370 beasts and 40it sheep,which moved off slowly, at somewhat reduced figures. The following were the im- portations during the last three years, ending on the othi of December in last year:- 1843. 1844. 1845.

The attendance of buyers being by no means6 arge the beef trade ruled heavy, at a decline in the quo- tations of 2d per 81bs, the highest figure for the bestt sorts not exceeding 4s 2d per 81b, and a total clearance' was not effected. From the Northern counties, we received 1,800 short horns from the Western and Mid- land districts, 600 Herefords, runts, short horns, &c. and from other parts of England, 400 of various kinds— the remainder of the supply being chiefly derived from- abroad and the neighbourhood of the metropolis. The- numbers of sheep were small; while the mutton trade was steady, at fully last week's prices. Although the' supply of calves was by no means large, the sale for that description of stock was in a sluggish state, on somewhat easier terms, Upwards of 200 pigs have arrived by steam' from Ireland. To-day the pork trade was firm, at late; rates. Statement and Comparison of the Supplies and Price*?
