Owen Thomas, Wesleyan Minister, Holyhead. Octobpr 9, 1845. Dear Sir,—Dr. Locock's Wafers do a great deal of good to Illy voice. I got a bad cold from a damp bed about 35 years ago, and my voice was very bad ever since beiug great pain to IDe when preaching or singing-and I am very fond of langing. 1 used many different medicines, and some of them do good for a little time, but Dr. Locock's is the best of all— clears my voice and stops the coughing instantly. I have lever found any thing yet to compare will. them. I have been 33 years a Wesleyan Preacher, and all the Wesleyan Methodists in the Principality know me, (20 years of which I have lived in Holyhead), and I am known person- ally to all the first men of that body, many of whom have admired the effects of the wafers in clearing the voice, anJ popping the cough they never got such a medicine before. 1\1 Y wife, ever since Christmas, has been very welJ, after taking two boxes. I am a witness of their power to stop a "islhtful fit of coughing in an instant. I, as a Wesleyan Preacher, call upon all preachers and singers of every denomination to take these wafers, for im- proving the voice and curing coughs. Vou may publish my testimonial for the excellent wafers, you wish.—1 am, yours truly, OWEN THOMAS. Wesleyen Minister. Another Cure of 20 Years' Asthma. Extract of a letter from M.

Gentlemen,—Please to send me an lis. box of Dr. Locock's Wafers bv return of post, and also a few of your lists of cures, that I may send them tothose of my friends who are similarly "nlictcd with asthma.

Sir,—I deem it to be one of our social duties to acknowledge the benefits we derive from the skill and labours of each Other. and I have now such a duty to perform towards vou. My little girl, known as the Infant Thalia, suffered lately very leverely from a cough, and relaxed Uvula, so much so, that She could not fulfil her professional duties. Varous remedies £ ere tiied without success, until a friend recommended your Pulmonic Wafers; their beneficial effect was instantly appa- rent, and a curespeedily effected. The continued use of them I find materially improves tbe tone and power of the voice. I cnuld not let this veiy effectual cure pass over without in- forming you of it, in the hope that you might make it known 'or the benefit of others similarly suffering. I shall be happy to answer any inquiries. 49, Great Queen-st., London. S. SMITH. The particulars of hundreds of cures may be had from tvery agent throughout the kingdom. 1h.

By Order, w A. F. MORCOM, Secretary. Railway Office, Cardiff, 1 J January 22d, 1846. j CHEPSTOW, FOREST OF DEAN, AND GLOUCESTER JUNCTION RAILWAY. THE directors beg to announce to their shareholders, that they have concluded an arrangement, by which the capital of this company will be transferred to the Gloucester and Hereford Extension of the Welsh Mid- land Railway, and the scrip of this company will be converted into Welsh Midland, Gloucester, and Hereford Extension Scrip. The object of the Chepstow and Gloucester Railway- was to connect the Trunk line of South Wales with the City of Gloucester. The South Wales Railway Com. pany, however, instead of encouraging such a line, have in every way discouraged it, and projected an opposition line of their own from Chepstow to Gloucester to accom- plish the same objects. Meanwhile, the directors having ascertained that the Welsh Midland Railway presents a Trunk line for South Wales, far more central than the coast line, and more generally convenient for that country, have come to the conviction that the objects of this com- pany the interests of their shareholders, and the benefit of the City of Gloucester, would be better attained by connecting that City with the Welsh Midland Railway. They have accordingly eutered into an arrangement with the Welsh Midland Company, and thus secured to their proprietary an interest in that Trunk line, which will place the City of Gloucester on the direct route from the whole central part of South Wales to the metropolis. By this arrangement each of the two companies bears its own expenses up to the present time, and the shareholders in the Chepstow, Forest of Dean, and Gloucester Junc- tion Railway will be entitled to receive scrip certificates for four shares of JE20 each in the Welsh Midland Rail- way, Gloucester, and Hereford Extension, in exchange for every five shares they now hold in the Chepstow, Forest of Dean, and Gloucester Junction Railway. The directors further give notice that the shareholders in the Chepstow, Forest of Dean, and Gloucester Junction Railway are required forthwith to send in their scrip for exchange, addressed to William Protheroe, Esq., Welsh Midland Railway Office, No. 14, Moorgate-street, City, and the parliamentary deeds of the Gloucester and Hereford Extension will lie at the offices of the Welsh Midland Railway Company, No. 14, Moorgate-street, City, and at the offices of Messrs. Baxter, Rose, and Norton, 3, Park-street, Westminster, and of Messrs. A'Beckett, Son, and Sympson, 7, Golden-square, between the hours of 10 and 4, from the 28th instant to the 4th of February, both inclusive, by which day it is imperatively necessary that all parties should have exchanged then- scrip and executed the deeds. Parties who neglect to send in their scrip, and execute the deeds within the time specified, will be deprived of the benefit of this arrangement, and after the 4th of February the original scrip will be no longer negotiable. Parties resident in the country may obtain powers of attorney for executing the deeds upon forwarding their scrip with a Post Office Order for 30s the amount of the stamp.

Glamorgan Central Mineral Railway. t5 THE Committee of Management have to announce to the Shareholders of this Company, that the Plans and Books of Reference were deposited, and the Notices to Landowners given, within the respective times limited by the Standing Orders; but in consequence of the default of numerous parties to whom Shares were allotted, to pay the deposits in fulfilment of the engagements entered into by their letters of Application, the Com- mittee find that the Subscriptions are inadequate to carry out the projected Works; and they are under the neces- sity of abandoning the proceedings prepared at great expense for the approaching Session of Parliament. The Committee regret that they are forced to that de- termination, but as the projected Works are not of a speculative character, but improvements of the Railway and Harbour of Porth Cawl, rendered necessary by the increased and rapidly increasing traffic, the confidence of the Committee in the proposed measure is unabated; and they will employ the intervals before the Session of 1847 in making arrangements for then introducing it into Parliament. The Shareholders who have paid their deposits on the Shares allotted to them, will receive a private communication from the Secretary, which will enable them to obtain repayment of their deposits, with- out deduction; and the Committee hope that when the new arrangements in contemplation shall be submitted to public consideration, they shall again find the names of those parties amongst the supporters of the under- taking. 38, Threadneedle-street, 1 J.

A severe case of Rheumatism, communicated by Mr. Allen, Proprietor of the Nottingham Mercury." Mercury Office, Nottingham, March 17, 1845. SIR, I have the pleasure of forwarding you the particulars of a case in which BLAIK'S GOUT and RHEUMATIC PILLS have proved eminently successful. A young woman, named Mary Wain, accompanied by her parents, who reside at Watnall, near this town, called upon me on Saturday last, being desirous of making her case known for the benefit of the public. It appears that Mary Wain had for some years past been a great sufferer from Rheumatism, but that iu October last she was more than ordinarily afflicted, so much so that her father fetched her from her place of service, in order that she might have the attention of her mother at home at that time to make use of the mother's description, "she could not lift her hand^to her mouth, or her foot the height of sixpence from the floor. Having heard of Blair's Fills, the father purchased a box at my shop about the second week in October; the 'S took immediate effect, for I am assured by the parents aod the girl herseff, that on the following day she could not only lift her band up to feed herself, but she could also move about on crutches. Since that time she has had five more boxes of the Pills, and if 1 may judge from appearances, is as well as she ever was in her life, and has been so for some months past. -?(0UI ARE AT LIBER,y LO MA'CE NSE of my name if you think it will add to the weight of this testimonial. — I AM, Sir, yotirs truly, TOI Mr. Prout,229, Strand.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. We regard the work before us, The Silent Friend as a work embracing most clear and practical views of 'a series of complaints hitherto little understood, and passed over by the majority of the Medical profession, for what reason we are at a loss to know.

Fmay add, that having studied the science of medicine for many years, I have ex perimentally proved the virtue of this ointment, in the cure of wounds and indolents ulcers. A parishioner of mine called Richard Oliver, had a running wound in his leg for upwards of 20 years, and was completely cured by using the Poor Man's Friend, according to the directions. Indeed, I deem a pot of this ointment to be one of the most necessary ingredients in my medicine chest. "I have the honour to be, gentlemen, your obedient servant, CHARLES LYNE, Rector of Roche.

A MOST valuable remedy for Bilious and Liver Com- plaints, Indigestion, Head-Ache, Giddiness, Loss of Appetite, Flatulency, Gout, Rheumatism, Heartburn Spasms, Lowness of Spirits, Costiveness, &c. These celebrated FAMILY PILLS have been faithfully dis- pensed by the present Proprietor for more than 30 years, and have obtained from all grades ef the community a character and reputation which no medicine of a similar nature has hitherto acquired. Dr. SYDENHAM'S PILLS being a most happy combination of vegetable matter, and not contain- ing any mercurial preparation, require neither confinement nor alteration in diet during their use. Moderate exercise in- creases their good effects. They may be taken at any time when the bowels are costive and uneasy; and Sydenham's Pills should be taken by persons of all ages, as they assist digestion, correct excesses of the table, give a healthy action and tone to the stomach, remove all complaints to which the digestive organs are subject, and will lead to health and cheer- ful old age. Families and the Proprietors of Boarding Schoo's should never be without an adequate supply of this admirable Family Medicine, as S YDENH A M'S PILLS maybe resorted to with the greatest safety aud success, on the first appearance of indis- position, and by adopting this practice, many serious and too often fatal attacks will be entirely prevented. The following is the opinion of an eminent Physician practis- ing extensively in Bristol and Clifton I have examined the composition of Dr. Sydenham's Pills, and consider them a very valuable remedy in all com- plaints to which the Digestive Organs are subject, especially Bilious affections, and an innumerable variety of diseases which are the consequences of an irregular and imperfect tion of the organs of digestion." < The most delicate Females, the young and aged, prefe SYDENHAM'S PILLS to most other aperients, as they are beneficial to their general health, improve their appearance, and being a VEGETABLE PREPARATION, they are at once mild, safe, and effectual. The high opinion entertained of SYDENHAM'S FAMILY PILLS, by many of the most emiuent of the Faculty, in pre- sent practice,(as well as the number of gratifying Testimonials the Proprietor is constantly receiving from persons of the highest respectability and standing in society who have been materially benefitted by their use,) renders any eulogium on their merits superfluous, and must convince the most sceptical of the superior properties of this valuable established medi- cine acknowledged by thousands as the best, safest, and most effectual Family Aledwlne now before the Public. These PIlls are sent abroad by the London exporting houses. Merchants and Captains of vessels will find them au almost indispensible acqmsiou to their Medicine Chests, they are so prepared as to retain their medicinal properties in any extreme of climate. r J Small Boxes, Is.

OR, PEARL DENTIFICE, PATRONIZED BY HER MAJESTY "THE QUEEN," And the Royal Family of Great Britain, As well as the several Sovereigns and Courts of Europe. rpHE importance of possessing A FINE SET OF X TEETH is universally acknowledged by all who attach the due value to personal advantages and the blessings of health. A regu ar, firm, and pearly row of teeth ever insures favourable impressions, while the indispensable agen. cies which they fulfil in respect to the functions of health demand our utmost care and attention in their preservation. Disorders of the leeth, however slightly regarded, are in- evitably attended with evils which affect the whole system. Whatever renders mastication painful or imperfect, not only lessens our relish and enjoyment of food, but also prevents that perfect comminution and mixture of it with the saliva which is indispensable to perfect digestion, and hence arise an endless 'fa'n of diseases of the stomach, while at the same time the body is deprived of its wonted nourishment, and the whole system languishes in a state of discomfort and disease. Perhaps among all the disagreeable consequences that follow fast the decay of the teeth-an impure breath must be the most mortifying to its possessor, as it is the most generally offensive in society. ° J The DECAY of the TEETH arises from various causes but principally, it may be attributed to early neglect, ill health, or the use of Tooth Powders containing mineral and other deleterious acids, which give a momentary whiteness to the teeth, while they corrode the enamel!—The extreme preva. lence of this last cause is too well known to need comment. lo this fact, indeed, is principally to be attributed the long Botanical Research, which has happily terminated by the most felicitous discovery ever given to the world for the I RE. SERVATION of the TEETH, GVMS, and BSEATH, viz ROWLAND'S ODONTO, Or, PEARL DENTIFRICE, A WHIRF, POWDER FOR THE TEETH, compounded of the choicest and most Recherche Ingredients of the Oriental Herbal the leading requisites of cleanliness and efficacy being present in the highest possible degree. It extirpates all torturous adhesions to the Teeth, and ensures A PEARL-LIKE WHITENESS to the enamelled surface. Its ANTI-SEPTIC and ANTI-SCORBUTIC PROPERTIES exercise a highly beneficial and salutary influence they arrest the further progress of decay of the Teeth, induce a healthy action of the GUMS, and cause them to assume the brightness and colour indica- tive of perfect soundness while, by confirming their adhesion to the TEETH, they give unlimited enjoyment and fresh zest to appetite, by perpetuating effectlvc and complete mastica- tion the BREATH also, from the salubrious and disinfecting qualities of the ODONTO, attains a sweetness and fragrance truly grateful to its possessor. It speedily removes those ravages which children sustain in their TEETH, owing to improper use of sweet and acid articles, which imperceptibly destroy them. The Proprietors of this Dentrifice pledge themselves, that its efiicacy in preserving and embellishing the Teeth far our- passes anything of the kind ever offered to the Public. As the most efficient and frag'aIlt ^romatic purifier of the BREATH, TEETH, and GUMS ever known, ROWLAND'S ODONTO has for a l<mg series of years occupied a distin- guished place at the TOILBTS of the SOVEREIGNS and the NOBILITY throughout Europe; while the general de- maud for it at once announces the favour in which it is uni- versally held.

4Foreign SittiUtgetui. FEARFUL DISASTER IN ALGERIA. A letter from Setif, dated the 10th inst., gives the fol- lowing details of the disaster which has befallen the column under General Levasseur:- On December 12 or 13, Colonel He'billon, of the 61st, commandant of the circle of Batna, left this point with two battalions of his regiment, to ptt a stop to the insurrection which threatened to extend ;o this country. He moved into the middle of the Ould Soltan, and his presence alone was sufficient to impose respect. He arrested 12 chiefs, and sent them to Batni. The Ouled Salems, neighbours of the Ouled Soltans, nfusing to listen to the voice of the caid placed over themny the French, retired into their most inaccessible mourtains, fancying that they would thus be sheltered from tie action of Col. Herbillon's column, which contented itsdf with allowing the goums of the submissive tribes to p'under until the arrival of General Levasseur, who has the command of the province of Constantia, in the ahfence of General Bedeau. A few days after, General Levasseur arrived from Coustantina with 1200 men, and .effected a junction with the column of Colonel Herbillon. He was afterwards reinforced by a batallion d'elitefrom Setif, which increased the force to 2500 men, which were divided into two corps, one under Colonel Herbillon, and the other uuder Colonel Corneille, of the 43d, and the cavalry commanded by Lieut-Col. Boascarius, of the Spahis. On the 16tb, ail the troops, without their knapsacks, excepting a few com- panies left in charge of the baggage, were sent in pursuit of the Ouled Salems, and came up with them at 12 o'clock. By two all their herds and baggage were captured, the Arabs, after losing about 100 of their men, having fled to the crests of the mountains, leaving part of their women and children behind them. The success was complete and the chastisement severe. The troops returned to their bivouac without having sustained any loss. From the Ouled Salems the troops moved upon the Bou Thalebs, at the entrance of the plain of the Oued Na, in order to punish the Ouled Tebennes, who had risen at the voice of the Scheriff Sisaad. On the 25th December they entered the mountains, slew about 20 of the revolted Arabs, plundered a village, and emptied the silos. Captain Bessiere, of the tiralliers of Constantia, received two balls in the thigh. In the nights of the 26th and 28th, the Arabs made attacks upon the bivouac, but were repulsed in both. On the 29th, Bou Thaleb, a chain of very steep mountains, was traversed, and the column established itself on the north side of them, with the design of reach- ing the centre of the villages of the Oulea Tebennes. Here the column was awaited by the Arabs with a standard. But a few howitzers put them to flight, and being pursued by a battallion they lost their flag. On the 30th these villages were burnt, and the silos emptied by the auxiliary goums. The enemy lost at least 30 men. On the 1st January the battalions moved on beyond the burnt villages and carried all the positions of the Kabyles, This lesson was the more severe as this tribe has no tents, and is therefore not only entirely ruined, but left without a shelter. No one could foresee, however, the misfortune that was about to fall upon us. On the 2d January, at 10 in the morning, the weather being beautifully fine, the column marched towards the Douairs ofNisaoud, our ally, where they were to encamp but about three o'clock the snow began to fall, blinded our eyes, and rendered the ground tolally impassable for the mules. At five a bivouac was formed, but the baggage did not come up till eight o'clock, and then a part of it had been left behind in some of the narrow defiles. On the 3rd, after a night of con- tinual snow, the column renewed its march. As it went on the snow still came down and covered the roads to the depth of eighteen inches, so that the troops could no longer find their way. At midnight they were in the middle of a vast plain without a morsel of wood for firing, the men dying with cold, and the Arab guides completely lost. We ought to have been within a league ot the smala of Msoud. but he himself was obliged to abandon all hope of reaching it. The men continued to sink under hunger, cold, and tatigue, till a feeling of desolation pervaded all hearts, and order and discipline were at an end. The few tents there were became so crowded that the men stifled each other, amidst the groans of the dying. Never was so afflicting a spectacle seen since the Russian cam- paign. The dawn of the 4th came on at last, and all the men and baggage that could be mustered and collected moved on, the cavalry taking the lead, towards Setif, which was about 10 leagues off. The men had been two days without food, and fell every moment from weakness and became frozen. At four in the afternoon the cavalry L reached Setif, and gave the sad news to the inhabitants, who hastened out to the assistance of the exhausted men, taking all their cattle and conveyances to bring in those who were no longer able to march-finding at every step unfortunate soldiers without shoes, and dying with cold and hunger. From the 4th up to the present day, we are every minute seeing men brought in by the inhabitants, but between two and three hundred are still missing. To find and recover these every measure is taken. The in- habitants have shown a noble humanity, but the Arabs of the plain have stripped the helpless sufferers." The Algirie gives a sketch of the above disastrous affair, which corresponds entirely with the above more detailed account, but includes a statement that 30 officers have been taken into the hospital at Setif. with their ex- tremities frozen-the detachment of the African chasseurs bad five men and several horses killed by the cold of the waggon train 15 are dead of the 43d of the line, which was making its first campaign in Africa, the grenadier com- pany has almost entirely disappeared, and nearly all the muleteers put in requisition have perished. The Algérie states, that on the 8th more than one-third of the column had not got back to Setif, consequently the fate of 800 men remained unknown. The Courrier Francais after giving the lamentable ac- counts from Setif, adds the following —" It is said that an epidemic disease has attacked the village of Foudouk, and carried off no fewer than 400 victims. Such a visita- tion is the more surprising as this small colony is situated to the east of the plain of Metidja, in a well watered and fertile country, believed to be peculiarly healthy. It is to be feared that the Marabouts who go about preaching in all parts of Algeria will avail themselves of this sad news, by holding it out to their fanatical hearers as a prognostic of the coming vengeance of the prophet upon the infidels." SPAIN.—BARCELONA, JAN. 15th.—The intelligence brought in by the Gerona post of this morning is to the effect that the armed insurgents who had appeared so sud- denly in the mountains of Geron a had, of their own accord, dispersed, directing their course towards the fastnesses of the Pyrennees. The whole garrison continues under arms, and^trong detachments are sent out every half hour from the wtified posts, who patrole the city without intermission. Crowds collected this morning in the square of Santa Catalina, but went away without any demonstration what- ever on the approach of the troops. The steeples and bel- fries of the churches have had sentries placed in them, as the intentions of those disposed to revolt within the city have been understood to be to seize on the churches and raise the "somatem" by ringing the bells, and causing the utmost confusion and alarm. The number of persons arrested to-day amount to 46. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA-LIVERFOOL, SUNDAY EVENING.-By the arrival of the packet ship Shenandoah, we have news from New York to the eve- ning of the 3rd inst. The only news of importance by this arrival is the Oregon Debate in the Senate, on the resolutions of Mr. Hannegan, with the counter reso- lutions of Mr. Calhoun. This debate, and also the result was published some ten days since in the Morning Herald exclusively, having been conveyed from Washington by Special Express for the Morning Herald in time to catch the steamer. The senate, at the close of this debate, ad* journed, and there is, therefore, nothing whatever to com- municate beyond that we were enabled to give on the occasion of the Acadia's arrival. Speaking of this de- bate the Courier and Enquirer says-H The lighting up of the skies after a long period of gloom, was never more striking or more cheering, than that of our political sky was rendered memorable and joyous, by the report of Mr. Calhoun's wise and statesmanlike movement and remarks upon the Oregon question, in the Senate. Its effect was most electric. It was the first topic of conversation and congratulation everywhere and tione were found to dissent from the timeliness, the patriotism, or wisdom of his course-now openly at least—though we did hear of some low growlings by disappointed plunderers and spoils- men, who hoped for war and its havoc, that they might make profit out of what to others would only prove calam- ity and woe. "The debate is concluded, and now we may consider this agitating question measureably at rest, until the steamer of the 4th inst. shall bring us tidings from England." The Express of this debate, as given says—" This important debate profoundly impresses the public mind here and elsewhere, and it is felt that the highest thanks of the country are due to Mr. Calhoun and to Mr. Haywood, the administration senators, who have rebuked the Casses. Aliens, Hannegans, and other fire- bands of their party, by a manifest determination to maintain the public peace. It is understood, too, that Mr. Lewis of Alabama, Mr. M'Duffie, of South Carolina, the two Florida senators, and we think we may add the two Texas senators (whoever they may be) with others, will adopt pretty much the same tone as the senators, from the South and North Carolinas. This settles the doubt about war or peace, unless madness rules in England. The commerce and the planting interests of this country are decidedly and emphatically opposed to an unnecessary war with Great Britain." It is mentioned in two Ameri- can papers, that there have been lately several important consultations between certain leading bankers, the repre- sentatives of the banking interest throughout the country and several great politicians belonging to both parties, probably delegates from Washington. The purpose of these debates, on the part of the high contracting parties, is, to provide ways and means for the defeat of the ad- ministration in its new sub-treasury plan, for separating the banks from the government. It is supposed that the banking interest of the United States would gladly appro- priate a million of dollars, for the purpose of defeating „f t Tyv3,S,era proposed by Mr. Polk.

Ihe Stock Market is much improved to day, and closes .nfavour of sellers m all descriptions. The course of Mr. Calhoun has had a very marked effect in quieting the fears of capitalists and operators in the street. The crops have been abundant throughout the country, and the pro- ducers are receiving nearly about twenty per cent, more for all descriptions of flour, bread stuffs and provisions, than they did last season. The production of wheat alone exceeds a hundred millions of bushels a year. The pro- duction of corn is over four hundred millions of bushels. The advance on this article alone, even at 10 cents, a bushel, amounts to the large sum of forty millions. In other leading articles the increased value is truly immense. Much of this estimated value, however, must be deducted as the producer consumes large quantities of the produce their own making,—but the advance in the surplus they send to market is to them a rich source of income. The market is dull for flour, 5 dollars 94 cents, is the price asked by sellers, but there are no buyers. At the close of the market 700 barrels of Genesse was sold at 5 dollars 87.1 cents.
THE SEEN AND THE UNSEEN.
THE SEEN AND THE UNSEEN. There is a spiritual element interfused through the whole material world, and which lies at the source of all action. It ? l,h.IS w,h'^h.I,fts world out ch*°s. and clothes it with light and order. The most ordinary act springs out of the soul and derives character from the soul. It 8eems trifling only because the spiritual origin is forgotten. While on the surface of life all may be calm, but it is staitling to think what mysteries of passion and affection may be beneath. We need not go far, if we will but open our eyes, to wee how the most ordinary acts of men are penetrated by a spiritual element; and where there is. nothing can be either tame or common-place. Nothing, at first sight, is more worldly or unspirited than a commercial newspaper. It deals solely with the affairs of the day, and with material interests. Yet when we come to consider them, its driest details are instinct with human hopes, and fears, and affections; and these illuminate what was dark, and make the dead letter breathe with life. For example, in the daily papers, a middle-aged man seeks employment in a certain kind of business. The advertisement has, in substance, been the same for weeks. For a time, he sought some place, which pre-supposed the possession of business habits and attainments. Then there was a change in the close of the advertisement, indicating that he would do any thing by which he could render himself generally useful to any employer. And this morning there is another change. He is willing to commence with low wages, as employment is what he especially wants. All this is uninteresting enough. Yet what depths of life may lie underneath this icy surface of business detail. It is easy for the fancy to seek out and make the acquaintance of this man. Could we but look through these long Hues of advertise- ments into the heaits of those who have published them what a revelation would there be of human tife Here are partnerships formed and closed; young men entering into business, old men going out of it new inventions and specu- lations; failures sales of household furniture and dwellings. These have been attended by the most sanguine hopes by utter hopelessness, by every form of fear, anxiety, and sorrow. This young man, just entering into business, looks forward with anticipations bright as the morning to his marriage-day This sale of furniture speaks of death, diminished fortunes a scattered family. There is not a sale of stocks which doe' not straiten or increase the narrow means of widows and" orphans. This long column of ship news-a thousand hearts are this moment beating with joy and thankfulness, or are op- pressed by anxiety, or crushed down by sorrow, because of these records which to others seem so meaningless! One reads here of his prosperity another of ruined fortunes; and the wrecked ship, whose crew was swept by the surge into the breakers, and dashed on the rocks—how many in their solitary homes are mourning for those who sailed with bright hopes in that ship, but who shall never return And more than this-could these lines which record the transactions of daily business tell of the hearts which indited them what temptations and struggles would they reveal They would tell of inexperience deceived or protected, of integrity fallen or made steadfast as the rock, of moral trials, in which noble natures have been broken down or built up. Had we the key and the interpretatton of what we here read, this daily chronicle of traffic would be a sadder tragedy than any which Sbakspcre^ wrote. It is the same with all human labour "Ihespiiit giveth life." Were it not so earth would be a dungeon. If toil were only toil, or if it had no object but the supply of one sown bodily wants—to gratify hunger and thirst or to minister to luxurious appetites—if this were all, the la- bour of man would be as the labour of brutes. But all the products of man's labour are but symbols of a spiritual life beneath. To the outer eye, what toilsome drudgery is often- time the life of a mother of a family She labours by day she watches by night her years are worn out in disconnected' trifling occupations. And yet, could we look beneath, when the mind is right, weshoutd find all these details bound to- gether, elevated, hallowed by the spiritual element blended with them. While with housewifely care she goes from room to room, under the labour of her hands grow up, as under sunshine and dew, the affections and virtues of a happy home Thus, ever under the visible is the invisible. Through dead material forms circulate the currents of spiritual life. Deserts rocks, and seas, and shores, are humanised by the presence of man, and becomes alive with memories and affection. There is a life which appears, and under it, in every heart,is a life which does not appear—which is, to the former. as the depths of the sea to the waves, and the bubbles, and the spray, on its surface. There M not an obscure house among the mountains where the whole romance of life, from its dawn to its setting, through its brightness and through its gloom, is not lived through. The commonest events of the day are products of the same passions and affections which, in other spheres, decide the fate of kingdoms. Outwardly, the outgoingsof ordinary life are like the movements of ma- chinery lifeless, mechanical, commonplace repetitions of the same trifling events. But they are neither lifeless, nor old nor trifling. The passions and affectious make them ever new and original, and the most unimportant acts of the day reach forward their results into the shadows to eternity. Open but the eye, and we live in the midst of wonders. The enthusiastic and ardent pine for scenes of excitement. They By to seek them in foreign lands; they bury themselves in the pages of poetry and romance; the every-day world around them seems to them stale, flat, and unprofitable. But it is only in seeming. At our very doors transpire realities, by whose side, were the veil taken away which bides them, the fictions of romance would grow pale. Around us, in light and in darkness, is going on the mystery of life, and passing before us in shadow is the dread mystery of death. Want and prosperity, anxieties which wear out the heart of youth, passions which sink it to the dust, hopes that lift it to the heaven--hid by the veil of custom and the senses—these are alive all around as.- The Token.
THE LATE RECTOR OF TRELAWNEY,…
THE LATE RECTOR OF TRELAWNEY, JAMAICA. It is our melancholy duty to record the death of the Reverend Griffith Griffiths, the pious, talented, and highly esteemed Rector of Trelawney. In being thus deprived of the services of a Clergyman, who was in every way entitled to the respect in which he was held, a blank has been created in our little com- munity which will not easily be filled. As a faithful Minister of Christ-as the consoler in their affliction, of the diseased and poor-as the promoter of education—and as the constant de- nouncer of vice and immorality, the exertions of Mr. Griffiths will long be remembered. On Monday evening last, his mortal remains were consigned to their last resting place on earth, and his funeral was attended by rich and poor-by persons of all classes and persuasions. At an early hour the Church was crowded-the mournful procession consisted of upwards of five hundred of our fellow-parishioners among whom he had so suc- cessfully laboured-and these were followed, by the Officers, and a detachment of her Majesty's 77th Regiment, of which he was Chaplain. It is impossible for us to describe the heart- rending expression of sorrow, which was manifested, when the lifeless body of this good man was taken from the hearse, and carried into the ailse of the Church. On every countenance grief was visibly depicted, and every eye was filled with tears, during the performance of the solemn service. To the afflicted family of the deceased, it must be consoling to know, that the members of an affectionate congregation, to whom he was justly endeared, bewail with them the loss they have sustained, and that many a sincere prayer has been offered to the throne of Grace, for his reception in the mansions of Eternal Happiness, where there "shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor cry- ing, neither shall there be any more pain," but where the wicked cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest." r *as'' the Reverend John Stainsby, one'of the ear- lest and staunchest friends of our late beloved Rector preached a funeral sermon, taking for his text the words Occupy till I come," from the 13th verse of the 19th chapter of St. Luke. The discourse was delivered in a feeling and impressive style, and appeared to make a deep impression on the minds of the hearers. The reverend gentleman, after briefly alluding to the person who delivered the charge Occupy till I come"—to the individuals to whom the charge was given—to the occasion on which it was spoken—and to the precise nature of the charge, or the kind of occupancy required—proceeded to comment on the general cha- racter of his departed brother, and to shew the extent of his usefulness as a servant of Christ, from the time of his ordination by the Bishop of Loudon in the year 1825, up to the very moment of his demise. During the ministry of Mr. Griffiths, chapels were built in the Country Districts of Portland—and several Schools established, in whioh hundreds of children received a useful and christian education.-Falmouth Post, 16 Dec., 1845. [The death of the Rev. Griffith Griffiths took place onti; 9th Dec. last, in the 43d year of his age. He was a native of the ^neighbourhood of Aberystvrith, Cardigaashire.—ED, C. &

WILSON'S ENTERTAINMENTS.—Mr. Wilsou, in commencing, for the season, the Entertainments of the Songs of Scotland, has chosen Crosby Hall for his lo- cality and appeared, on Monday Evening, for the first time, (we believe), before a city audience. Notwith- standing the state of the weather, this fine old hall was crowded to the doors, and Mr. Wilson was received, and listened to, with even more than the usual enthusiasm which he never fails to excite. In a building so happily fitted for musical purposes, that it is now employed for many of the best and most classical concerts of the season, the rich and mellow tones of his beautiful tenor voice sounded to peculiar advantage; and the company were alternately delighted, affected, and exhilarated by the sweetness of his melodies, the pathos of his expression, and the richness and nationality of his humour. The songs which produced the greatest impressions were, ••Saw ye my wee thing, « Auld Robin Gray," "The Laird o' Cockpen, and «' Mary Morison," which were encored with mos ve lemerit demonstrations of plea- surel4. • r*«f lS creator of this species of entertainment, and no\y as many imitators, but none of 1 femi*ufioa v He presents a combination ? n2 £ Z' 18 found alone. He is in- ,f Ional. Scotch to the core. He gives the 1. 0 es wild" of his country in their primitive Simplicity, spurning the slightest semblance of exotic ornament, so that his version of a scottish ballad is not ? J. °eautiful but perfectly authentic and the anecdotes, traditions, and sketches of Scottish habits and manners, With which he illustrates them, are so animated and graphic, that they have almost as much interest as the ballads themselves. He is singularly happy, too, by his easy and rapid commentaries and explanations, in enabling an English audience to understand and enter into the meaning and spirit even of the most ultra Scotch of his lays; and has thus entirely surmounted what would, a priori, have appeared the greatest obstacle to the succesa of his performances.Daily News, 21st of January.
