M tggrtmegfrag'g a I'll trfJutØ1Jap'ø lIoøtø. LONIION, DEC. 12. THE Paris papers of Friday and Saturday are Jt- uuerly destitule of news. Prince Polignacpassed through Strasburg on Monday on his way to Munich. The intelligence from Madrid is to the 3d inst., and is almost exclusivelv confine'! to a debate in the Cortes on the Olozago affair. The ex-Minister vindicated his conduct at great length, denying that he had been guilty of the violence imputed to' him (see our first p ipe.) He stated that on the evening of the 28th he wared on the Queen, carrying with him several de- crees for the Roval signature. All these decrees were signed by her Majes'y in the usual order, without any repugnance on her part, and in the space of time ne. cessary for: he transicir>n of so much business. It was needless for him again to declare that he had simply performed a duty in obtaining the signature of her Majesty, and that no other means were iaken by him to induce her Majesty's approbation than the re- gular explanation of the circumstances under which each particular decree was required. He challenged contradiction when he asserted that all the signa ures were made in the same manner, and the inspec ion of the decree which it was asserted he had obtained by force would prove that no difference existed in the form or manner of writing from that which was appa- rent in the other papers He asserted this-nay, more he would say, he never was received by her Majesty with more kindness, with more marks of benevolence and esteem, than on the very evening in question. In allusion to the declaration of the Queen, he con- tended that the language did no' resemble that she habitually used, and concluded that the words had been suggested to her. and that the style was not hers. The fact was, an intrigue had been formed against the li- berty of the country, and he was made the first victim, because he refused to join in a plot to bring Spain under the power of Don Carlos, by marrying his son to the Queen. (This was followed hy loud shouts of No, no," from the public tribunes, and a general hurst of indignation, which the President with difficulty repressed.) He repeated his assertion with great iirmness, and then attacked those enemies of the country who had thus endangered the stabilily of the throne. With regard to himself, he demanded an inquiry; and would vote for the address, as the most effectual way to place him at the bar of Congress, and elucidate the truth. The President (Senor Pidal) then left the chair, and, mounting the tribune, said the speech of the Hon. Member only tended to con- vince him of the truth of the declaration made by the Queen He blamed Olozago for receding Irom a system of conciliation, and choosing the members of his Cabinet from the Progresista party alone. It was the inconsis'ency of public men which ruined the country and if Olozago had remained true to his principles, fhit unseemly discussion never would have occurred For his part he fully believed the declara- tion of the Queen, and was not ashamed to say he shed tears on witnessing the candour, truth, and inn cence with which she narrated the facts. The debate was then adjourned, and although resumed on the following day had not arrived at a conclusion.—The decrees ap- pointing the new Ministry were communicated to the Chambers on the 5 h. It consis'ed entirely of Mo- deradoes, and was not considered likely to last many õays. M. Gonzales Bravo assumed the Presidency of the Council, as well as the direc ion of the Foreign Department; the Marquis de Penaflorida was nomi- nated Minis'er of the Interior General Mazzaredo, Minister of War; M. Mayans, Minister of Jus ice; M. Partillo, Minister of Marine and M. Carasco having refused to accept the Ministry of Fiuance, the- direciion of that department was to be intrus'ed ad interim to M. Sarralde, Chief Clerk of the Treasury.
The Gazette of Friday announces, that the Queen has been pleased to direct letters patent to be passed under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, for presenting the Rev. John Sinclair, M.A. to the Archdeaconry of Middlesex, void by the promotion of the Right Rev. Father in God Dr. Jobn Lonsdale to the see of Lichfield. The same Gazette also contains a Treasury war- rant on the New PostageTreaty with Holland. Let- ters either pre-paid or not exceeding half an onnce in weight, will now bs charged at the uniform rate of 8d., and newspapers Id. Her Majesty has signified her intention to the Rev. T. Page to subscribe 501, and Prince Albert 251. towards the schools, now nearly completed, in connection with Christ Church, Virginia Water, Egharn. Mr, Henry Lytton Bulwer, the New Minisler at the Court of Madrid, left town on Wednesday for Spain to as* sume his diplomatic mission. In the Bait Court on Tuesday, Patrick Leith Strachan "was found guilty of having assaulted John George Scott, a Student at Harrow School, with a criminal intention, and will be brought up for judgment next Term. INCKNDIARISM seems to maka progress in the agri- cultural districts. Last week, twelve fires of the kind occurred in Bedfordshire One waa on a farm at Clap- ham, occupied by a Mr. Crisp, and is supposed to have been provoked by his use of n itir^shfng-machine. On the farm of a Mr. Eames, some labourers endeavoured to sink the water-buckets while a hayrick was btazing, and o'hers wrung the necks of some fouls. The master of a Sunday-school confessed to bein# the author of the last Sre Tuesday's Gazette offered various re- wards for the discovery of the persons who had caused four fires on the nights of the 18th and 19 h November, in Suffolk, and of another on the 27th, in Northamp- tonshire. In Cambridge also three incendiary fires are announced. THE CORN TRADE.—Paragraphs have lately ap- peared to some of the Provincial Papen, purporting to prove that the Consumption of Wheat has been unusually great since harvest; and the datal upon which this assump- tion is grounded consist of the quantities of English Wheat returned as sold, wiihin a given period, in juxtaposition with the sales effected during the corresponding time of last year. Though we are disposed to beuevetbat some iucrease in the consumption wf bread-stuffs has lafcen place, we cannot understand how such statements can in any way be looked upon as conclusive. The returns of sales al e of course con- fined to Wheat of our own growth, foreign being excluded. In the antomnof lust yetr, the importations into the United Kingdom amounted to nearly 3,000,000 quarters, against which only 800,000 qrs. paid duty thhst-ason. The markets were consequently glutted with foreign duting the latter part of 1842 and so anxious were importers to realise, that the article was for many months obtainable on relatively lower terms than English Wheat, and farmers were deterred from sending their produce to market. The consumption, therefore, ran principally on foreign—a fact which, in a great measure, accounts for the large quantity of old left in the hands of grow*rsiat the time of harvest. This year the case is exactly the reverse the insignificance of the importation has caused holders to exhibit great firmnels, and old foreign Jus ail along been held at comparatively high rates. This, and the kindly properties of the new wheat for grinding, induced the manufacturers to give it a decided pre- ference. The grounds from which our Contemporaries draw their conclusions must therefore be viewed as wholly fallacious. That the deliveries of English wheat havesince harvest been on a liberal scale, is, however, perfectly true; indeed, so tanch so as in some measure to lead ns to hope that the reo ported deficiency in the yield may, after all, have been more or less exaggerated. The weather has throughout the week been damp and mild, acting very injuriously on the condition of all kinds of grain. Wheat, being more affected by at- mospheric influences than other species of corn, has come to band in very indifferent order, and good supplies having Item brought forward at the principal provincial markets, great, difficulty has been experienced in its disposal -—Mark' lame Express. ASSESSMENT OF LANDLORDS TO THE INCOME TAX IMPORTANT DECISION.—The Board of Commissioner ap- pointed for the taxation of property and income in Maryle- bone district have for some time past (and no doubt it has been the case with every other Board throughout the kingdom) felt themselves placed in a position ofconsidera. ble difficulty in reference to that part ef the Act which jHis^sses landlords upon their income derivable from rents of houses in cases where the tenants think proper to abscond without paying their rent. A large number of cases of this description have from time to time come before the Mary- lebone Board of Commissionei s, who, although they consi- dered it a case ofpecatiar baidsbip that landlords should be compelled to pay a tax for income which they had never received, still felt that their powers nnder the Act did not penult them to remit the tax on any portion of such sup- pose^! income. Under these circumstances, it was resolved by the Board te leave the matter for decision by the Board at Taxes at Somerset House, who directed the collectors in puck cases at once to levy for the entire amount. Subse- quent and repeated appeals to tfle Board of Commissioners against this decision induced them, in order to set the mat- ter at rest, to recommend the appellants to apply at once to the Lotds of her Majesty's Treasury, who would doubtless give" a decision upon which sll Boards of Commissioners uonld act uniformly throughout the kingdom.—A ease was .accordingly laid before their Lordships, in which a collector had distrained the geods of an incoming tenant for a year's I* although the collector knew that the former occupier had run away without paying single farthing ofrent, paro. chial rates, or taxes: and a« it was presumed, that Govern- most could not intend to charge income tax where no income was received, their Lordships were requested to afford necessary relief. To this their Lordships replied, thai the circumstance of the landlord not having received fcia reut formed no ground for the remission of the duty, •neh rent having become a debt, wbteh te might hereafter recover from the tenant, in which ease, if the tax were gireit np., he would profit to the amount thereof at the expense of tile revenue, and farther, that the assessment, besides being a personal charge on the occupier on whom it was mada, was also < charge upon the premises, and therefore, the collector, on the refusal of the present tenant to pay the arrears, was boandto levy for thetmoant, otherwise he would have become responsible for the same to- the Crown; and that the tenant paying the tax was* euuUed |« dedact and retain the i<ae out of his payment of rent to the landlord. Under these circumstances, as the tax was dearly payable by the incoming tenant, their tordsliipa saw DO ground for their Interference in the pller." I ROYAL ANECDOTE.—Her Majesty's generous sym- pathy with the too-frequentj misfortunes and consequent unprovided circumstances of literary men has been often experienced by them in the substantial relief they have received from the Royal bounty. The following recent instance deserves to be recorded. A few weeks since Mr. Blewett, the Secretary of the Literary Fund, was honoured with a communication from her Majesty, direct- ing that a selection of the most meritorious and pressing cases which were on the Society's list of applicants might be made and fotw-trded for inspection. This command having been promptly obeyed, a communication was soon after made to Mr. Blewett. thit her M ijo^'v had been pleased to present the three first on the list with admission to the Charter-house One of the individuals thus favoured being a Dissenter, was ineligible this being communicated to the Queen, her Majesty was graciously pleased to settle on him a pension of 20/. annually, and directed that the amount of tiiree years be paid to him forthwith. SIR IIKNKY POTTI NCER. — We regret to learn, that the reports which were current about twelve month* ago, to the effect that Sir Heniy Potlinger had solicited his lecal from China, are now confirmed, with the additional fact, that his request has at length been complied with hy Govern- ment; and we that a successor to Sir Heniy — in the important command which he now occupies, and which he has fill'd so much to his nun credit, and to the honour and advantage of the conntry-will leave Euglaud in the course of a few weeks. We regret to add, that the cause of this resignation is a painful disease of long standing, which imperatively requires not only the best medic ) advice, but a season of relaxation from the arduous duties of foreign ser- vice; in which Sir Henry has been engaged, we believe, for a puriod of nearly forty years. There have been few men entrusted with important missions, who have dischat ged their duties in a manner more perfectly satisfactory to their fellow- countrymen than the late Plenipotentiary to China; and we 11 ust that his valuable services will not be forgotten by Englishmen in general, nor, in particular, hy the inhabitants ot Manchester, who, we think, will find hereafter, that they owe a deep debt of gratitude to him for the wisdom, the firmness, and the prudence, with which he has conducted and concluded a most difficult and trying negotiation.— Manchester Guardian. GLASGOW MEETING AGAINST TilE CORN-LAWS.—Our noble city has indeed spoken out, and that, too, in the most decisive manner, agdinst the corn-laws. We refer to the meeting held this afternoon (Saturday), at one o'clock, in the Trades'-hall. We snatch the opportunity, however, of here prominently observing, and we cannot deny ourselves the great gratification of doing so-that whereas, on former occasions, the leaders of the Chartists in this city, as in other places, arrayed themselves against meetings of this kind, and strived to mar them, there was on the present occasion a total absence of such tinnatu<al, such unwise, and reprehen- sible conduct; and the < esolutions, for the first time in Glasgow, at a crowded meeting, open to all ranks in the city, from the tichest banker, the greatest merchant, to the most h imble artisan, were carried unallimoflsly-ay, and most enthusiastically. We hail this as an excellent omen- as a most distinguished proof of the returning good sense of the working-classes of Glasgow, anti they may depend upon it that their best friends participate in this movemeut for their common interests. We must also state this other most gratifying fact, that upwards of 2,500i.—\es,2,500/. sterling --was announced in the. hall as being already subscribed in Glasgow, to aid the funds of the National Anti-Corn Law League, over and beside the handsome sum contributed in Glasgow last year. We ha'e no doubt that the subscriptions will yet be materially increased. Every man has an oppor- tunity of giving his mite, and no mm can give it for a better purpose than to accomplish the abolition, the total and im- mediate abolition, of the food restriction laws. We trust their doom is now sealed. At all events the city of Glasgow has done, and will continue to do, its duty, in conjunction with all the towns and cities in Her Majesty's empire.— Scottish Reformers' Gazette. THF. UNITED STATIS AND CANADIAN PROVISION TRADE.-On Thursday last a large scale of American and Canadian provisions took place in Liverpool, and as this is altogether a new trade, and one chitfly created by the New Tariff, it will be interesting to tnapy of our readers to know the result. Of American cheese there were offered 7160 cases, weighing together about 260 tons. The quality of this cheese was in general good, but it was most of it out of condition, and did not bring more than from 34s. to 38. per cwt. Not more than the eighth part was sold in the sale room.-Or salt butter, principally Canadian, 240 casks were offered: it fetched j 53s. to 55s. per cwt. The quality was good, superior to any Irish butter to be bought at the same price.—Of hams there were 1500 offered they sold at from 58s. to 60s. the cwt. The quality was good, and the prices the same. Of beef, 200 tierces were offered, but none was sold.-O.f lard, 1#00 barrels (about 100 tons) were offered it was taken in at 35s. to 3601.6,1., and a considerable part of it has since been sold at those prices.—The arrivals of American provisions from the United States, from the 1st to the 30th of November, were as follows :— Beef, 583 tiprces and 308 barrels j hams, 7650; lard, 3337 barrels, 1378 kegs butter, 766 casks cheese, 954 casks, 2486 boxes; wheat, 2561 quarters; and flour, 36,608. This is independent of the supplies from Canada. Since the com- menconeut of the present month the supplies have also been large. The American ships Virginia and Republic, which arrived here on Monday, and the Complon, from Canada, which arrived here on Sunday, are almost full of provisions. The two American vessels are said to bring 1000 tierces of beef, besides other kinds of provisions.—Liverpool Times. EXTKAORDINAKY CASE.—Mr. Barber, of the firm of Barber and Kircham, solicitors, New Bridge-street, was charged on Saturday at the Mausion House with forgery. From a lengthened examination it appeared that a Miss Ann Slack, spinster, formerly residing in Smith street, Chelsea, among other property had 3590f. Consolidated Annuities in the Bank ot Englan I, but having granted powers to Mr. Hulme, her father's executor, for the receipt of the dividends t*f this anil tuber money ft, ami be listing died in 1832, she had not received the dividends 011 that Stock—iu fact, she had not received the dividends on that Stock-ill fact, she had forgotten that there was any such sum of hers in the Bank.—The Stock was in July 1842, (the dividends having been unclaimed for ten years) by virtue of an Act of Par- liament transferred to the Commissioners for the Reduction of the National Debt.—In October 1842, the prisoner wrote to Captain Foskett, of Abbott's Langley, who had married Miss Stack's sister, for the purpose of ascertaining who was the legal representative of Anne Slack, who had died at Bath.-In reply, Capt. Fo«kett stated that the Lady was then alive, and had been living with him and her sister for the last twelve years. Further correspondence ensued, and some interviews took place between the prisoner and Capt. Foskett, the result being that the prisoner did not consider Foskett, the result being that the prisoner did not consider the identity of Miss Anne SI¡¡ck could be supported. Thus the matter rested till March last, when an advertisement appeared in The Times of the 8th of that month, signed Rather and Bircham," for the purpose of discovering ''the legal and personal representative of Miss Anne Slack, formerly of Chelsea," and on the 16th the prisoner obtained probate of a will of Anne Slack, bequeathing 3500J. Stock in the Three per Cent. Conso idated Annuities to her niece, Emma Slack, of Francis-street, Tottenham Court Road, and that Lady, pg g0!e. Execottix, having made the required declaration of being sole legatee nn ie her aunt's wil a lodged the probate at the Bank, the Stock w~s tranllfert ed in her name, and she received the dividends due in April, and then transferred the whole, having previously sold it. The charge against the prisoner was that the said will was forged and had been uttered by him.—Miss Anne Slack deposed, that the signature to the will was not in her hand- writing that the money was hers; accounting tor her ignorance of having such Stock in the Bank by the fact that Mr. Hulme, who received her dividends, did not pay them regulaily over to her but supplied her with money as she required it.—Mr. Wills, Proctor, Doctors Commous, stated that he procured a probate of the will by direction of Mr. Barber.—The prisoner deolared that he had acted in the most honorable manner and the utmost regularity in the whole transaction; that a Lady came to his office, introduced by another party, and having simply stated her business, the necessary forms were observed, and the matter tran- sacted but he declined giving the name of the person who introduced that Lady to him, as it would be a violation of faith in him to mention the party. However, after consult. ing some friends, he decided on producing the individual, and called Mr. Joshua Fletcher, of Brunswick Terrace, Wal- worth Road. The witness said he introduced the alleged executrix, Emma Slack, to the prisoner about the month of April, who produced the will in question, in order that the prisoner might profess:onally assist her. The prisoner and the Lady appeared to be quite strangers to each other. Th. Lady appeared to be quite a respectable person.—In a I most rigid cross-examination by Mr. Clarkson, the witness made the case very strong against the prisoner, and did himself so much damage that the Lord Mayor at once con- sented to the application of the Learned Counsel to commit the witness as an accessory before the fact with the prisoner. The two prisoners were then remanded nntil Saturday next. The inquiry lasted upwards of six hour*. THE FoG.—In coneeqnenwe ot the dense, fog which pre- vailed to-day on the river, business was almost at a stand- still, and the Gravesend, Woolwich, and Greenwich steamers were unable to proceed on their usual passages. The fog ex- tended all down the river, and no steamer would venture to leave the Terrace or Town Pier at Gravesend, and many of the annual ticket passengers who got up and down everv day, and others whose business was urgent, were compelled to seek a conveyance to London in the coaches which passed through the lown, and iu omnibuses, flies, or any other vehicles they could engage. In the evening several omnibuses, engaged for the purpose, left London-bridge for Gravesend, filled with passengers, there being no steamers to take them down the river. One vessel left the Blackwall Pier in the morning, with about twenty passengers on board, in the fog, but was unable to proceed further than Wool- wich, where she brought up and remained several hours, to the great annoyance of the unfortunate voyagers, who thought of cut- ting through the mist. At two o'clock the fog cleared off a little, and the IVaterwitrh, Hull steamer, left London-bridge with a few passengers, bat only paddled slowly as far as St. Katharine's, where herfurther progress was stopped. The Watermen's ttteam- ers, and the Woolwich and Greenwich steamers, were also fog- bound; and the only vessel that left Old Shades-pier during the day was an Ipswich steamer, which it was supposed could not go far in the fog, and it was certainly a dangerous experiment to pursue the voyage in such weather. The above-bridge steamers, with two or three exceptions, were also laid up. There were no arrivals of steamers or vessels, from the Continent or from Ire- land, or Scotland, during the day, in London but at Gravesend, and in the Channel, there were a great many coasters, and other ships, waiting for the fog to clear off.

øoØUtripL LONDON, WEDNESDAY, DEC. 13. We have intelligence from Madrid to the evening of the 7th, by the French telegraph, which is of consider- able importance. The Chamber of Deputies, by a majority of 81 against 6G, had resolved to take illlO consideration the proposrion presented by seven De- puties to prosecute Senor Olozasja and Hie jury chosen to try the charge of libel made by the; ex-Mi- nijier against the Heraldo, have decided in favour of the editor. The debate relative to 'he charge again s' Oiozaga was resumed on the ádl. The President (Pidal), who had not finished his speech on the pre- vious day, opened the discussion, and after repeating his conviction of the truth ot the Royal declaration, said, independent of other circumstances, the fact was strengthened by the ciriumstance that General Ser- ratio, a friend of ()!o;>;aS:;å, had (irsi recommended his dismissal. He wished to know at-io why the accused had not called 'he Duke of Ussuna on his defence, who was Chamberlain on the day. and might he able to speak to facts. Cortina defended Olozaga, and denied that the Olozaga pnr'Y had been the first to break up the cohliliog. The late Min's er was a friend to con- ciliatioi, but his late measures, such as those relative 10 the National Guards, and the decrees and decora- tions of Espartero had excited alarm and indignation against him. The new Ministers at this time entered the Chamber, when Ovejero asked for explanations respecting the -occurrences which had taken place on the night of !lie 3d. in Town Flail-square. The Presi dent of rhe Conncil (Bravo) said the rio'ers had raised shouts of Viva iispartero," and were the first to fire on the military. The House then adjourned Nofur- 'her disturbance had taken place at Madrid, though much excitement prevailed. The packet ship Rotcius, Captain Collins, arrived at Liverpool from New York yesterday, after a very suc- cessful passage and by her we have received advices from that cily to the da e of the 251h ultimo, being five days later than those received by the lsst arrival.— The news from the United Sta'es by the lloscius is entirely devoid ofin'erest, but that from Canada is highly im- portant, inasmuch as we are informed that the health of the Governor-General, Sir Charles Metcalfe, was so very unfavourable as to induce him to relinquish the office of Governor, which he has so successfully filled. There had been so much exci'ement in Canada about 'he removal of the seat of government, and so much discord and discussion in the Legislatnre in consequence that it had been brought to a premature close. The Kingstoll papers state that it would be prorogued on the Isr, and that Sir Charles Me'calfe would then im- diately embark for England.—Advices from Hayii state that another conspiracy against the government had been discovered amongst the blacks. This was on the 24th ult. On that day three of the ringleaders were seized, tried, and condemned 'obesho'. One of them only knew enough to make an unsuccessful attempt on his own life while in prison. The o hers appealed to a higher tribunal for trial. This was granted. — From Rio Janeiro, news to rhe 10'h of Oct. had been received at New York. A friendly treaty, which had been entered into by the Brazilian minister with the Monte Videans, had been negatived by the Emperor. The British Commodore Purvis had received orders from his government to respect the blockade of Monte Video. The Brazilian Princess, Donna Januaria, was danger- ously ill wi h putrid fever, and great excitement ex- isted inconsequence.—The commercial accounts by the Roscius are. very favourable. Business was brisk, and the value of the various kinds of stucks had a tendency to advance.
Parliament will meet on the 1st of February for the dispatch of business.— Globe. It is affirmed that Earl Grey is suffering from an in- disposition that has pxcited seiioos apprehensions for the life of the venerable Earl. The anniversary of the foundation of the Charter House was celebrated yesterday with all the usual formalities. The sermon was preached by the Hon. and Kev. Robt. Liddell. A sratement of Mr. O'Connell's, that an offer" or "suggestion" has been made to him of immunity from punishment on condition of abstaining from agitation, has of course excited attention. The reports of what he said vary, so that it is not quite clear how far he in. tenfted to imply an offer of an official kind, in the s rict acceptation of the term. The Morning Herald says- If Mr. O'Connell meant in this passage to convey an insinuation that any such suggestion or off. r had been made to him by Ministers, directly or indirectly, we have good reason for declaring that be uttered a wilful and deliberate untruth," STOCKS.—Bank Stock, 182|.—3 per Cent.

(Ij SW ANSEA. FRIDAY, DEC. 15. NOT many months ago, it «ill be recollected, there was an attempt made in Parliamant to tax tho whole nation for that most laudable and desirable purpose, the education of the people. Hopes were high throughout the countryr as the prevalent opinion was—and there were some grounds for it, founded on notions ot jtisnee and rumours current—that we were to be gladdened hy the develop. ment of a plan which would give satisfaction to all Christian sects, one that would permit the members of every deno. minatioii to participate in the State's grant for National Education, one so comprehensive that it Mould offer the blessing of education to all the poor of the realm, be their creed what it might—in truth, a plan" wilb as large a charter as the wind," to blow npon its all. This delightful prospect was, however, soon dsstioyed, when the scheme became visible. It was found that thi. giant was not to be distributed according to the relative numbers of each religions body, but that the Church of England was to partake, more bountifully of it than any other sect, consider- ing the amount of its communicants. This was palpable injustice, at least according to the no ions of fairness- eateitained by every impartial human being. The Dis- senters of course objected, raised a cry for justice, peti- tioned the Legislature, procured some of its rucmbeM to point out the unfairness of the proposition, and the whole scheme, with a slight exhibition of sulkinoss by one of the parties, fell to the ground. Since that time the Church,, convinced of the immense impoitauce of Education, has determined to see what she could do by its own exertions, backed by her own pecuniary lesources. Accordingly^ they have formed a National Education Society, which has begun, we are glad to state, under most propitiont auspices. A week ago the sum collected for the society amounted to 125,000f, and the subscripiion^ are iar creasing, it is said, at the rate of 4001. a-day. We con- gratulate the Church upon the present success of Irs endeavours, evincing the goodness, real earnestness, and philanthropy of its members. We feel assured that art incalculable amount of good will be done, as it will lend a most lielping hand to ilke education of the poorer classMr and so much towards placing: them on a level, as regard; intelligence, with the like classes in civilized continental countries. The hociety states thatitsobjectsare to extend and improve popular education, not only in the manu- facturing and mining districts, Viit in agricultural polishes, in commercial and seaport towns, and generally throughout the country. The Church is, therefore, worthy of ait praise for the formation of this society, and for the libe- rality with which it supports it and its objects—a liberality forming a mal ked contrast to tbe means by which it was endeavouring to effect the same ends a short time ago. We candidly say, that the Church must be held now in a higher estimation than she was at that time. She found there was something retired to be done, and she thought, presuming ou her superiority, that she might as well see if she could not effect it by the aid of others* money a* well as her own. We suppose, she said, "it is a good thing to advance the cause of philanthropy by our own exertions and our own money, but it is likely to prove a better thing if we can also increase out eflfoits by the pecuniary help of others." She has discovered that she could not carry out her philanthropy in that way, so she sets about the work with a reliance upon herself. Her friends, in alluding to this movement by her, cannot help recollecting the failure of the Government measure brought forward in the last session. They say the prejudice or bigotry of party defeated that attempt. It is true they did, for if the Church had been more conceding, a Par- liamentary measine on the subject would have been carried. The Dissenters, we are happy to think, have not in the meantime neglected to perform their part towards the promotion of education. They have con- tinued their efforts with that earnestness and good inten- tion which have always characterized them, which have for years been a good example for the Chnrcb to followv and which, it must be gratifying to know, have, in many instances, induced the EMabtMlje4 Clergy to shake off their lethargy, aod perform the duty their situation IBK -V* -vV.
