The inscription in gold letters inside the Bible is as follows:Presented to William Richards by the Committee of the St.. Mary's thurc,h Young Men s Society, as an acknowledgment of his kind giatuitous services, rendered to them on several occasions.-Januwy 29th 1801 '—Under which is written H. C. D.

She has been within the last few weeks considerably altered and modifie under the immediate superintendence of the Board o Directors, who are at present putting m an entirely new deck and in compliance with the requirements of the Board of Trade, bushing the screw with brass, or rather gun-metal bearings. No additional capital will be re- ouired to defray the expense of these alterations, which S be complet'ed by the end of the month, so that the vessel may again go to sea in March. It is probable her next vovage will be to New York. The three actions which Mr Scott Russell has brought against the com- pany, have, by order of the Court of Common Pleas, been consolidated in one. Mr. Russell a claim is m all £60,000. The company have against that gentleman a cross action for jEl 30,000. Both causes will come on for trial next term, when it is probable they may be ie- ferred to arbitration. Mr. Hope has resigned his seat at the board, and as yet no one has been appointed to suc- ceed him.—Sun. DEATH OF SIR JOHN OWEN, BART., M.P.
