A Life Director of that distinguished Charity has invited those of enlarged and philosophic minds to compose a Pr,' Essay 011 the means of preserving mariners from, shipwreck, a subject so intimately connected with their exalted views, whose grand object at aii times must naturally excite the emulation of ingenious, inquisitive men. The Managers, whose efforts. have been constantly de- voted to the preservation ot' human life, are'entitled to pe- culiar regard .or adopting a subject so interesting-to the feelings of the humane and benevolent; and I doubt not but their exertions will call forth the abilities c who are well qualified to throw light upon so important a question. I cannot but.anticipate the happy consequences arising from a zeal and ardour so friendly to the best and dearest affections of humanity. I rejoice there exists a Society which comprehends in its extensive circle every rank and situation in life and I hope to see the day when it will be fixed upon a solid aud substantial basis, and be enabled to diffuse its benefits to a large portion of the human race. Questions determinable in 1806. 1. What are the best means of preventing shipwreck ? 2. What will be the most probable means of keeping vessels adoatli" they spring a leak, or are otherwise ill extreme danger ? S. The most certain methods of assistance from shore to vessels in distress within a certain distance, of land, and when boats dare not venture out to their aid ? Treffcnnon, 180*1, Sept. 24. Cysi&o. To the EDITOR of The CAMBRIAN. sin, The exaggerated accounts frequently given in the public papers ot the valuable properties oi foreign grain, and other vegetable productions introduced into this country for the purpose of agriculture, tend greatly to impede the general culture 0,1 such as would provrf extremely profit- able for disappointment must necessarily follow expecta- tion too highly raised, and then it is not allowed even the degree oi merit it might be entitled to. Such is the ac- count given in the Cambrian of the loth inst. of Egyptian wheat. The description is tolerably accurate but as to the quality of the straw, it will be" found very different indeed from what it is there represented to be. "The outer coat is thicker and coarser than common straw, and con- tains a tough, spungy substance; very like the pith of cider. From this description the reader may easily judge whether it can be so peculiarly nutritious as to render unnecessary the use of hay and corn for hl)res. A prac- tical agriculturist of the first eminence who has grown it for some years in Essex, says, that it is very productive, yielding a much greater return than other wheat, particu- larly oil poor, light, and dry land therefore, he considers it as well worthy me attention (J farmers, whose .soil is of the above description. 1 [The insertion of the concluding part of our Correspond- ent's letter, mentioning wheat may be ob- tamed on much lower terms than it'the rate or ten guineas for fourteen pounds, would subject us to the ativeyise.went
