H E NT "THE PROPOSED "FERRAR" MEMORIAL AT I CARMARTHEN. The martyr memorials of Gloucester and Oxford per- petuate t'.)e names of four out of five bishops who, three .^enturye.s since, suffered martyrdom in defence of ib" Reformed Faith in this kingdom. The fifth, Robert *Wrnr. was Bishop of St. David's from A.D. 1548 ttf A.D. 'Wliy his memory has never yet been similarly i, it is difficult to explain (or of the five episeo- pa! r:yt« of the Reformation in this land none more !y evinced courage, constancy, and zeal in the *»oiestant «ause than Did Robert Ferrar. "He knew that the avowal of his belief would he his death-lsnell. "o had no c iuse to be weary of lifa, and in the course of Mature he might have lived many vears. He had felt the Pleasures of domestic affection; he had tasted the sweets Of learned leisure; he bad known the charms of power, for he stepped from a Bishop's palace ti) the stake." He J*as for some time chaplain to Archoishop Oranmer, and oo early embraced the doctrines of the Reformation. On jhe accession of Queen Mary he was charged with heresy, pardon was offered him if he would promise obedience to Pope of Rome, and renounoe the principles of the Reformed Church of Kngtand. But he refused life upon conditions, and was burnt alive at Carmarthen in year 1555 alo every false accusation of his persecutors Ferrar 3Wer^d with remarkable decision, which put them to caIne and silence. Nevertheless this godly bishop was °nciemned and executed in the Market-place at Car- where he most constantly sustained the torments foil e.fire. Among the incidents of his martyrdom is the Oilowin?: One Richard Jones, a young gentleman, and fiotl of a Kought. coming to Dr. Ferrar a little before his ueatb, lamented the pain-fulness of what he had to suffer: Unto whom the bishop answered, If you see me once stir, tohile I suffer the pains of burning, then give no credit to those doctrines for which i die." And as he said, he performed; for so patiently he stood, that «'e never moved, till one Richard Gravel!, with a staff struck him down, that he fell amidst the flames aDd expired, or rather rose to Heaven to live for her j. A movement (originating in Wales) will now rescue he memory of Ferrar from long neglect.

HOUSE OF LORDS.-FRIDAY. Their Lordships met at a quarter to two o'clock for the purpose of disposing of the last business of the session; of hearing the Queen's Speech, and of announcing the order tof her Majesty for the prorogation of parliament. I The Lord Chancellor read the Queen's Speech as follows :— My Lords and Gentlemen, I am happy to be enabled to release you from your labours, and to offer you my acknowledge- ments for the diligence with which you have ap- plied yourselves to your parliamentary duties. My relations with foreign Powers remain friendly and satisfactory. I have no reason to ap- prehend that Europe will be exposed to the calamity of war, and my policy will continue to be directed to secure the blessings of peace. I announced to you at the beginning of this session that I had directed an expedition to be sent to Abyssinia to liberate my envoy, and others of my subjects, detained by the ruler of that country in an unjust captivity. 1 feel sure that you will share in my satisfac- tion at the complete success which has attended that expedition. After a march of 400 miles, through a difficult and unexplored country, my troops took the strong place of Magdala, freed the captives, and vindicated the honour of my Crown and by their immediate return, without one act of oppression or needless violence, proved that the expedition bad been undertaken only in obedience to the claims of humanity, and in fulfil- ment of the highest duties of my sovereignty. 'The cessation of the long-continued efforts to promote rebellion in Ireland has for some time rendered unnecessary the exercise by the executive of exceptional powers. I rejoice to learn that no person is now detained under the provisions of the act for the suspension of the habeas corpus, and that no prisoner awaits trial hi Ire- land for an offence connected with the Fenian conspiracy. I Gentlemen of the House of Commons, I have to thank you for the liberal supplies which you have voted for the public service. My Lords and Gentlemen, I have had much satisfaction in giving my assent to a series of measures completing the great work of the amendment of the representation of the people in Parliament, which has engaged your a tention for two sessions. I have seen with satisfaction that the time ne- cessarily occupied by this comprehensive subject has not prevented you dealing with other ques- tions of great public interest, and I have giadiy given my sanction to bills for the better govern- ment of public schools, the regulation of railways, the amendment of the law relating to British sea fisheries, and for the acquisition and maintenance of electric telegraphs by the Postmaster General and to several important measures having for their object the improvement of the law, and ofjtbe civil and criminal procedures in Scotland. By the appointment of la Comptroller in Chief in the War Office a considerable reform in army administration has been commenced, which, by I combining at home and abroad the various depart- ments of military supply under one authority, will ¡ conduce to greater economy and efficiency both in peace and war. It is my intention to dissolve the present par- liament at the earliest day that will enable my people to reap the benefit of the extended system of representation which the wisdom of parliament has provided for them. I look with entire confi- dence to their proving themselves worthy of the high privilege with which they have thus been invested, and I trust that, under the blessing of Divine Providence, the expression of their opinion on those great questions of public policy which hava occupied the attention of parliament and remain undecided may tend to maintain unimpaired that civil and religious freedom which has been secured to all my subjects by the institutions and settlement of my realm.' The Royal writ was then read, ordering the Parliament to be prorogued until Thursday, the 8th October. The proceedings then terminated at a quarter i before three o'clock, the House of Lords having sat altogether 96 days this season. DEATH FROM A SLAP ON THE FACE.—An inquest was held at Saffron Walden, on Tuesday on the body of a half-witted small-sized man named Shelfprd, who had worked on the Hall Farm for more than 50 years. It appeared that on Satur day George Savill, the bailiff of the farm, being irritated at something the deceased did, gave him a slap on the face. Deceased went home and died in a few hours. The medical evidence showed that although the blow was slight it had ruptured some diseased blood-vessels in an old-standing tumour on the man's neck, and caused copious internal bleeding and death. The jury returned a verdict of Manslaughter, and Savill was committed for trial, bail being granted, himself in £20, and another surety of a like amount. REVOLTING INGRATITUDE —A man named Blanc Gonnet, aged 32, has just been tried at the Court of Assizes of the Ain for murder. The victim was Madame Humbert Ferrand, who resided at the chateau of Conzieti with her husband, a gentleman well known in French literary circles, and the author of the libretto of Berlioz's opera of the Iroyens. M. and Madame Ferrand had no children of their own, and had adopted the prisoner when a child two years old. He was at that time in a mendicity asylum, his mother having been abandoned with a large family by her husband. The boy soon manifested the most perverse in- stincts He was expelled from several schools at which he bad been placed. At the age of 18 he enlisted in the army, and served in the Crimea. In 1856 he was condemned to a year's imprisonment for theft, and in 1860 to a second sentence of ten years for a similar offence. His misconduct did not, however, seem to have weakened the affection of Madame Ferrand for him. During his confine- ment she procured for him what indulgences she could, and by her intercession obtained his release in 1867. She had already made a will instituting him her sole legatee, and, wishing to prevent him from relapsing into idleness and licentiousness, took him to reside at the chateau of Conzieu. There he refused to pursue any occupation, his disorders knew no bounds, and he even threatened the lives of his benefactors when they refused to provide him with money for drink and debauchery. In May last he left the chateau for Geneva, and a fortnight later, having squandered the money :1 In be bad received on his departure, he came back to Conzieu, broke into the residence at night, and, after strangling Madame Ferrand, plundered her room of all the jewelry and other articles of value he could find. lie then returned to Geneva, where be was arrested while endeavouring to dispose of some of the stolen property. He did not deny the crime, and on his trial at first refused to accept an advocate to defend him, saying that L he wished to be sent to the scaffold. He was now sentenced to death.
LORD DERBY AND THE REV J. LEA. There is a short note in the Liverpool Courier requesting the insertion of a long statement, and both bear the signature of Derby.' It appears that the noole earl has received a pamphlet. written by the Rev Jacob Lea, in which a violent attack is made upon the Rev Canon M'Neile for having spoken in terms of commendation of the conduct of the trustees of certain churches in and near Liverpool. In these churches was in eluded St Mary's, Bootle. Mr Lea, in his pam phlet, has expressed an opinion that the incum- bent of St Mary's enjoys an income arising from pew rents of over £1,000 a year, while he returns his income as £ 160. The noble lord in his state- ment says: 'I am bound to suppose that the whole of the passages must have been written in utter ignorance of the facts for there is not a shadow of foundation for any one of the state- ments, except that of the incumbent's return of his income. The church in question was built by, and was the sole property of, Mr Wil- liam Miller. It was consecrated in 1827, the only endowment being £160 per annum out of the pew rents. Mr Miller being in difficulties, and having mortgaged the pew rents for ^30,000, was de- sirous of selling the property and at the Z, earnest request of the parishioners, my late father became the purchaser. He paid off the mortgage, paid Mr Miller a sum of £4,500, and enlarged the church at his own expense, at the cost of £ 2,900, making a total outlay of £ 7,400. This property I inherited, and I, if any man, am the person de. riving from it my unhallowed gains.' What they are a very short statement will shew. Mr Lea is disposed to think' 'that the gross receipts for many years past have been considerably over £ 1,000 a year.' I have reason to know that in no one year have they approached that sum. For the kst nine years the highest receipt has been £567, the lowest £474, and the average £ 535. The ex- penditure during the same period has averaged JE474, leaving a surplus of £61 as a return for £ 7,400 ou'lay. This average includes an aug- mentation of the incumbent's stipend to zC300, which, however, being a voluntary payment, he does not return as income, but it does not include the value of a house north JE50 a year which the incumbent o^vumes rent free, and which, if added to the expe>->'l-re, would reduce the r'^tvn of £61 to jusi :il> — —-o — DAMAGES FOR Loss OF A HUSBAKI>.—At th- y", Assizes, the case jf Scott v. the North Ki" Railway Company was heard. Mr Donald Scott v> agent to Major Stapylton, of Myton Ball. On ti. I 23rd of last A pril he was travelling on the defendant*! railway, when a Ci lision occurred at Res' elf, in which Mr Scott was killed. The negligemce of the defendants was admitted, and they paid into court £ 300, and the only question was whether Mr Scott's life was worth more to his wife and family or not At the time of his death Mr Scott had ten children, who were of a,(, arying from 13 to 37, nearly all of whom were mor or les9 dependent, upon him, and his place was saiw to be worth £ 300 a year. The jury returned a verdict for the plamtilf for £ 270, in addition to the ^;300 paid into court. FIftE AT HUP JE;ISFIHLD..—On Snnuay night a the on a large sca.e look place at ifuddersfield. The goods warehouse of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway station was discovered to be on fire. It is stated that in consequence of there being no buckets of water at band ready, or those present not knowing where to look for tiu :tt, what was. at first- an insi; lificant fire soon became a huge blaze. Some of the firemen entered the warehouse by the door near to the stables, and were engaged in playing directly on the burning material, when several of the men connected with the goods sta- tion, desirous of saving some trucks of goods that were in the warehouse, opened the door near the main line, and the wind setLng from that direction, the smoke and the flames were driven on the fire- men in the wareh -use, and tlley had to make their escape rapidly. The fire was discovered about half- past five. The roof fell in shortly after six o'clock, and the top part of the front wall fell shortly after- wards, then the end of the front wall gave way. The whole place, except part of the outer walls, was destroyed soon after seven, and the fire ap- peared smothered but an the supply of water to Huddersficld, like many otinn* towns, is at present low, the firemen ceased playing, and allowed the flames to work their will on the mass of material in the warehouse—beams, rafters, merchandise— and the flames increased iu brilliancy. A jet was, however, left in operation, to prevent the flames spreading to the adjacent .stable. MURDERS AT SEA. -The Dutch vessel Fenni- china arrived at Pernambuco upon the 25th o! June, witha cargo of jerked meat from Montevideo. During the voyage the following scenes occurred -—On the 18th the first mate J. J.de Groth ordered an Englishman called James Rudge! shipped at Montevideo, to take the wheel from him, when the latter struck the mate upon the head and knocked him down. He then cut his throat and threw the i body into the sea. The cook J. Biemhold was awakened by the splash and, believing some one had fallen overboard, began to shout. A man overboard and to throw planks and ropes into the water. While thus engaged Rudger sprang at him, split his head open with a hatchet, and threw him into the sea. The captain and second mate were awakened by the noise, and the second mate in coming up the companion way was struck at but missed by the hatchet wielded by Rudger, and he jumped back, whereon Rudger closed the hatch and piled chains on it to present it being opened by them. He then called the two remaining men. an Englishman named Nicholas Chester and an American called John Hughes, and forced them by fear to obey him. He then told them that he was about to scuttle the vessel and abandon her, but they pursnaded him to wait until the vessel was near land. On the 21st Rudger uncovered the hatch to see what was going on inside, and while so doing Captain Hotze attempted to shoot him with a gun, but this missed fire. Rudger then hastily closed the hatch and callsd to the men on deck to. put a large stone on top. While he was waiting the captain fired at him by guess, but the ball only scared Rudger's leg. This, however, had the effect of alarming him, and he ordered the Z, boat to be got ready, while he himself made pre- parations for firing the vessel; but his companions again dissuaded him from leaving her so far from 11 t, land. At night Chester went to bed, Hughes was C, at the wheel, and Rudgers, who had not slept for three days, laid down near it armed and with his hatchet close to him, telling Hughes to waken him when land was in sight. In a few minutes he was fast asleep, and Hughes then left the wheel, and seizing the hatchet buried it in Rudger's head, who tried to rise, and drew his knife, but fell dead be- fore a second stroke. Hughes then shouted that 'all was safe, and after throwing the body into the sea, opened the hatch, whereon, after some hesita- tion, the two imprisoned men came on deck. No iponey or other valuable portable property existed on board to tempt cupidity, so that the lerocious conduct of Rudgers must have originated from n maniacal thirst for blood,—Anglo BiarMian Times. A LIVELY NEIGHBOURHOOD. — At the Manchester Police-court, on Friday, the stipendiary magistrate was engased upwards of an hour in investigating charges and counter-charges of assault, in which a large number of men and women—especially women—were concerned. One of the witnesses said that the street, (off Roolulale- road) in which the row occurred was a fearful place to live in, for the men at)d women were 'agate all day and all night, and there was no chance of any satisfaction without taking the case before Mr Fowler.' B.g4 of -tones and other missiles, and paper parceit. of women's hair, were laid on the table. The evidence went to show that the doors were broken open with sledge hammpra, and that the windows were smashed with brickbats, while a quantity of cups and saucers and other crockery was fired at B 134.' Mr Fowler, pointing to the papt.tr parcels, asked if that was all the hair that was 1 un- fastened on the occasion. Several women replied that ,here was more at home, and there would be no peace in the street unless one or other of them (the partif* being diversely selected according to the leanings of the wit- nesses) should be locked up.— Mr Fowkr: You will alt get some peace now. It. is useless to line any of you, for in half an hour your friends would he here with the money, and you would be driven away as usual in cabs, with colours flying. One and all, you are committed to gaol f.ir a month. A SCHOONER RUN DOWN BY A STEAMER —The Board of Trade has received the deposition of the master of the Bradford steamer, belonging to the port of Gnmsby, in reference to a serious accident she met with on her passage from Rotterdam, with a general cargo and thirty passengers, by running down. the French schooner Mary Pauline, of Honfleur It occurred on the 19th of July, in lat. 52.23, long. 2 30 E. The mate of the steamer was in charge, who first sighted the schooner hearing N.W., about half a mile, which was in company of another vessel. On the steamer approaching them the mate found she would not answer her starboard helm and although, the engines were stopped and reversed at full speed, a collision could not be avoided, and the schooner foundered, and the ctewand one passenger, a female, went down with her. Fortuna'ely, on rising to the surface of the water, they seized hold of life buoys and cork-fenders, which were thrown from the steamer, by which they were quickly picked up by » the boats of the Bradford steamer. The schooner was 112 tons, and was laden with sugar, silk, stationery, and general goods. THE YORKSHIRE M OORS.- The reports from the whole of the keepers on the vast range or moor radiating from the line of railway between Sheffield Manchester, and extending into Derbyshire, Cheshire, and Yorkshire, are deciiedly oia cheering character. Owing to the disease which attacked the birds last year a great portion of the moors was not shot over, ind the result is that in those cases the birds are :>■!? only pretty numerous, but strong. On the '•xtansive grounds of Sir L. Pilkington, at Board-hill '.aits, and the district, the birds are very strong ,)n the wing, and in good condition At Dunford Bridge and the adjoining moors, belonging to Mr J. S Stanhope, of Cannon Hall, there is every prospect of good sport; whilst from the Duke of Norfolk's grounds, and those at Bradtield, Hazlehead and Midhope Stones, the reports are favourable. Owing to the early season the heather will be ready full a forlnight earlier than usual. In the neighbour- hood of Halifax the Midgleyand adjoining moors are better off than last year. In the Bingley distiict, owing to the covers catching fire, a large number of birds have been destroyed, The heather, it is said, will require some years' growth before it will be fit to be again used as preserves. MYRDKR BY A FATHEK.—At the Bodmin Assizes, John Sticklfind was indicted for the wilful murder of Maria fiowttn Stiekland, at tho parish of FiiiUnck, oa the 4til ot May. The prisoner, who occupied a respectable portion, stood charged with the murder or his own eiii'd. About, four years ngo the prisoner married a w-niow, named Miles, who had some littla property. Sha had two children by her first hu-tiul, and these ac- companied their mother on her marriage to their new home. On Friday, May 1, the prisoner's wife died, and at the time of this murder, which w> s committed OIl Sunday niglit, May 3rd, she was lying delld in her coifia in one of the rooms of the house. I ti,, little girl whoso death was the subject of this inquiry slept with the prisoner, who was exceedingly fond of tier. It would seam that the prisoner and his wile had lived extra va- gantly-, and all the money was spent, and tiie prisoner became greatly di,tre",d at this circumstance. On the night of the 3rd of May the-prisoner and the child, who was only 3 years old, retired to rest, and in-the morning another child of the prisoner's went into his room, but seeing blood on the flour she became atRrmed, and rushed out screaming. An alarm was given, and two or three women went into the room, when a sad spectacle pre- sented itself. The prisoner was lying in the bed with Ilia throat cut, and blood was flowing copiously from the wound. There was a razor lying on the pillow, covered with hiood. Upon looking lurther they found the little girl in the bed dead and q,r.ite coUl, with her throat cut. Of course the theory of the prosecution was that the prisoner had cut the throat of the child aad then his own. It was nrged for the defence that the defendant was insane at the time he committed the rash act, and in support of this theory a surgeon was called, who said that trom the state of tits mind, aud his liver and stomach, he would be pr-'iue to commit rash acta of any kind without any ai-p.ueiit isoiive. Persons in that state were liable to c >!ii-nit rash ttets upon those they wer most fond of, aa well-as upon themselves. Thejury acquitted the prisoner on the ground of insenity, "nd the learned judge ordered hIm to be detained duriag her Majesty's pleasure. HAILW.AT COLLISION AT LIVERPOOL.—We give a few particulars ot the serious collision reported from Liverpool, by which ten persons were more or less injured, and which might have resulted in much worse consequences. The 2.45 p.m. express train from London, is due at Lime street station at 8,15 p.m.; but on Saturday evening it was about 1-5 minutes late. Before the train left Edge- hill station a break van was placed in front of the train, but from some cause which has not yet been explained, there was no person in charge of it. Consequently, after the train had been started it began to descend the tnnnel at a furious rate of velocity, to the great alarm and excitement of the passengers. The guard in charge of the train used every exertiop. in his power to stop its progress by putting on the breaks, but with little or no effect. The train came dashing down the tunnel with undiminished speed, and came into collision, with several luggage vans. Luckily, these were standing at intervals from each other, and the progress of the train was broken by degrees* Some of tbe carriages and vans were smashed to pieces. It has been said that three trains were to start from Edge-hill about the same time, and that the Ibreaksmen got into confusion as to which they were to conduct, and hence the train due S.15 was allowed to depart without a breaks man at all. The rate of speed at which the train en- tered the terminus has beeu estimated at 30 miles an hour, and had it run at this velocity into. another train or upon the fixed buffers the con- sequencesjmight have been more appalling than it is possible to conceive. One of the .persons injured was Mr Mr Arthur Swanborough, a member of the celebrated Strand Theatre family, though not a professional actor, who was travelling with his wife.
BHEAKFAST.—EPPS'S COCOA.—The very agreeable character of this preparation has rendered it a general favourite. Invigorating and sustaining, with a refined and grateful flavour developed by the special mode of preparation applied, this Cocoa is used as the habitual beverage for breakfast by thousand who never before used Cocoa. Cocoa stands very much higher than coffee or tea,' Dr. Hassall says, and 'containa every ingre- dient neceesary to the growth and sustenance of the body.' It is made simply by pouring boiling water or milk on the preparation as sold, in -ilb., !Lb., and lib. packets.
BRGELLy.-On Saturday last, being St. James's day. the members belonging to the Benefit Society, held at the house of Mr George Teagne, Miner's Arms, Begelly, bad their annual feast. The day was delightful, and not- withstanding it was a busy time of the year, the members, tothe number of eighty, made their appearance. The dinner was prepared under the superintendence of the Landlord and Landlady, who had neither spared trouble nOr expense to get up all the requisites of the season for the comfort of the inner man. A part of the members had got up a band themselves, and considering they »eie'young beginners,' they performed their parts well. There were several appropriate aongs and toasts given, also several speeches touching on the nature of the society, and urging the necessity of unanimity and phi- lanthrophic feeling and of making a long pun, a strong Put!, and a pull altogether. The state of the funds was 'ery satisfactory.
