NEW MAIL FROM BRISTOL TO LIVERPOOL.—In our last week's Merlin, we stated we were given to understand that the Postmaster General had acceded to the memorial for the above mail. We have since received the following official announcement from SirFraneis Freeling. A similar communication has been addressed by Sir Francis to Lord Granville Somerset. General Post Office, 27th August, 1831. Sm,—Having brought under consideration the Memorial from the inhabitants or Bristol, Chepstow, Monmouth, and Hereford, which you transmitted, I have the satisfaction to acquaint you that his Grace the Postmaster-General has consented to try the experiment of a Maii Coach through those towns to Liverpool, and I flatter myself that it may commence about the middle of next mouth. I have the honour to be, Sir, Your very obedient humbls servant, F. FREELING, Secretary. R. Blewett, Esq. Monmouth.
To the Editor of the Monmouthshire Merlin. Mn. EDITOR,—Having been told that there appeared in a London newspaper an announcement of Mr. Blore having been appointed to the situation of a government architect, accompanied by some envious remarks on his presumed insufficiency, I feel in justice bound to step voluntarily forward as a witness'in his be- half, and I beg leave to do so through the medium of your columns. He has the unqualified approbation of Rickman, the only person who has published a really useful book on Gothic Architecture, and that of the two best amateur architects of the present day-Mr. Petre, keeper of the records in the Tower, and Mr. 1 wopenny, of the Temple: J But I understand it is said he has no experience. The fact" is, he prudently deemed it requi- site to store his mind with every possible information before he avowed himself an architect. Sir Walter Scott was probably the first person to discern his merit, which he some years ago at- tested by the present of a silver cup, when Mr. Blore gave designs for Abbotsford. I believe I may claim the credit of coming next, he having been introduced to me by the pre-emi- nent sculptor, Chantry (who I know values him highly), though I had not the opportunity of employing his talents till within the last three years. In the mean time, the Duke of Bedford, Earl Spencer, Lord Corehouse, Mr. Ponsonby, and several other noblemen and gentlemen have availed themselves of his assist- ance as architect, to their fullest satisfaction. He is architect to Westminster Abbey and Peterborough Cathedral, in each of which he has placed screens that do him immortal honour. But, Sir, Goodrich Court, in your immediate neighbourhood, which is open to the public, on application to the housekeeper, every day until five o'clock, Sundays excepted, will challenge the most critical examination. Its originality will be evident from its not resembling any other building in the universe, while its correctness can be proved from the fact of every part, however minute, having been taken from domestic specimens of the time of Edward II. The joiner's work in the interior, as well as the masonry without, equals any examples that can be produced and although the skill and method to effect this has been chiefly owing to the care and attention of Mr. Heiton, the clerk of the works, yet the merit of the working drawings is justly due to Mr. Blore. Of his integrity I cannot speak in too high terms it equals his taste and judgment. No one knows better the value of the various kinds of work he has to plan, and therefore no one more able to keep within his estimate. Should it be true that he has obtained this appointment, I cannot but congratulate the public on having the best security against waste and extravagance. I have the honour to be, respectfully yours, SAMUEL R. MEYRICK. Goodrich Court, 31st August, 1831.

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. In the French Chamber of Deputies, August 27th, the President of the Council concluded a long address by saying—The King has ordered us to submit to your deli- beration the following project of law, to take rank, after it shall be adopted among the articles of the constitutional charter, as article 23 :— PROJECT OF LAW. A single article to replace article 23 of the charter. The no- mination of the members of the Chamber of Peers belongs to the King. Their number is unlimited. The dignity of a peer is to be conferred for life. It is not transmissible by hereditary de- scent. All dispositions to the contrary are and shall be abro- gated. The present article may be modified hereafter. Never- theless, no proposition for that purpose shall be submitted for examination to one legislature, unless the preceding legislature shall have deferred it for that purpose. Brussels papers, dated August 31st, have been received, giving an account of the elections for senators as far as they had pro- ceeded. The following is a list of the senators already electjd Brussels, The Count D'Aersehot, MM. Joseph D'Hoogvorst, Henri de Merode, Beyts District of Louvain, M. Charles Van- derlenden de Hooghvorst and the Baron de Penthy District of Alost, The Count d'Andelot, Eugene de Robiano Antwerp, MM. Albert Cogels, Dubois District of Ghent, Le Marquis de Rhodes, Massez, Eugene de Raveschost (The Orange candidates were signally defeated); Bruges, M. Pelichy Van Huerne; Namur, M. de Stassart; Hainault, M. Leopold Lefebvre. The elections for Deputies were going on in the same spirit. At Ghent, which returns six Deputies, all the Liberals were chosen. The Independent says-" The names of the Senators which have 'just been taken from the electoral urn of the capital, afford a happy augury for its representatives. If we regret that the worthy Surlet de Chokier has not received a testimony of gratitude which was due to him in all the provinces, at least we have the satis- faction of saying that the Orange party have not elected one can- didate. Count d'Aerschot, M.de Merode, and M. J. Hoogh- voist, are, either on their own account, or that of their family, men dear to the revolution-men, whom we can, without the slightest regret, associate with our new Monarchy. Baron Beyts is a conscientious man, devoted to his country,—one who has constantly struggled against the tyranny of the House of Nassau, and whose merit will be of great utility in our first Chamber. The Deputies of Flanders, Messrs. Andelot, and Eugene de Robiano, elected at Alost, belong to the Catholic party. We hope that they will not forget the principles which they professed in the ancient union. Messrs. Albert Cogels, and Dubois, elected at Antwerp, might have desired the return of the ancient 11 family of Orange before Prince Leopold's accession to the throne but it is to be imagined that these respectable merchants now are aware that the prosperity of Antwerp depends upon the con- solidation of the present order of things. Let us hope that the elections in the other districts will be as satisfactory as these first nominations." A correspondent to the Courier from Brussels, dated August 30th, concerning the feeling of the Belgians towards the French, says—Your journalists seem very uneasy at the stay of the French army in Belgium but if they were aware of the senti- ments of the Belgians on the subject of the union with France, their fears would be dissipated. Their protracted stay here. will certainlv destroy the opinion which has been formed in England, that the Belgians desire to be again united to France. In spite of the eminent and undeniable service which the French have just rendered us, the mistrust and want of courtesy with which they are treated must be sufficient to prove to them that, of all opinions, the least popular one is the idea of a re-annexation of our territory to theirs. He adds-We have no news here. Every body's attention is turned towards the Minister of War. In a few days the greater portion of the Civic Guard of Flanders will be organised under the old and well-known officers, and will be sent to guard the frontiers on the side of Dutch Flanders. VIENNA, AUG. 19.-General alarm was caused yesterday by the sudden death of a mechanic with the usual symptoms of cho- lera. To-day all is easy, it being affirmed from many quarters that the health of the city is in no danger, and that the indivi- dual in question died of an ordinary dysentery. Many families, however, are going away, and the road to Bavaria is crowded with travellers. The Emperor is at Schoenbrunn, to which access is free. The young King of Hungary is here, which much tends to make the people easy. Prince Metternich and the foreign Ambassadors are also here but trade is at a stand, and the ex- change affords a melancholy prospect. A report has been very ,current on 'Change that accounts have been received from Rot- terdam of the total defeat of the Poles. The Paris letters also mention a report that some advantages have been gained by General Rudiger's corps, which, however, is believed to be the same report that was current here some days since and with regard to the Rotterdam accounts, they can only be traced to an article that appears in one of the Dutch papers, which states that in a skirmish between some of the troops stationed at the outposts, the Poles had retreated to the main body of the army. (From, the Messager des Chambres, dated August 31.) Letters from Germany inform us that the tumults in Hungary assume a serious character. Military forces have been dispatched from Pesth to repress the revolt. This revolt, it is said, began by the sanatory precautions taken against the cholera, but there is ground for believing that these disturbances have also a poli- tical character. Several Austrian correspondents assure us that entire regiments have quitted Hungary tojoin the Polish standard. We must wait, however, for more positive information before we form a judgment on these events. For several days past there has been a report of a new inter- ventionjof the Austiians in the Roman States. We are enabled to affirm that this report is entirely destitute of foundation. German papers to the 24th ult. have been received. We sub- join all that is worth extracting SCUTARI, JULY 26.—The Grand Vizier, with his whole force, is advancing against our Pacha, and has his head quarters at Alessio. Mustapha has retreated into his fortress, which is already besieged by the Sultan's troops. A deputation is gone to Alessio to offer the submission of our city to the Grand Vizier, and we may daily expect to see it occupied by the troops of the government. It is to be hoped that Mustapha Pacha will then be delivered up to his own people, and that then the miseries of the war will be put an end to.
The inhabitants of this borough have determined to evince their loyalty to our most gracious King, by celebrating Thursday next, the day of his Coronation, as a holiday. A subscription has been entered into to provide a dinner of roast beef and plum pudding, in the good old English style, for the poor inhabitants of the town. The Mayor, attended by the members of the Cor- poration, the inhabitants, and the different friendly societies, with bands of music, &c. are to meet at the Town-hall, at half- past ten o'clock in the morning, to walk in procession to St. Mary's church, to hear divine service. At night an illumination will take place. PONTY POOL. -A meeting numerously attended to take into consideration the propriety of having a general illumination on Thursday next, in honour of the Coronation of their most gracious Majesties; and it was unanimously resolved that the same be carried into effect in the most efficient style possible, and that a general festival shall take place upon the occasion. Pontypool Races are fixed for Monday the 19th instant, when excellent sport is anticipated, as several horses are entered for the Town and Hunter's Stakes. We are requested by a correspondent to contradict the statement which appeared in our last concerning the intended illumination at Abergavenny. He says the respectable inhabi- tants of that town are decidedly averse to such a measure. A potatoe stalk, nine feet two inches in length, having 12 potatoes, one of which weighed llb.3oz., was extracted this week in the garden of Pentwyn Farm, in the parish of Llanwenarth, in this county. Garrat Wolsh, master and owner of the schooner Dis- patch, of Dungarvon, was found drowned on the sea shore, at lledwick, on Saturday, the 27th ult. He left his vessel at New- port on the 19th, about four o'clock in the morning, in a state of derangement, and was seen at Goldclift, six miles from Newport, about eight or nine o'clock at night, by two boys, walking down the clay at low water to the tide. The boys, it appears, went after him for half a mile, and asked him where he was going, and if he was not coming back he gave no answer—the boys watching him for some time, when it became so dark that he was lost sight of. An inquest has been held on the body verdict- Drowned himself in a fit of derangement." 11 The reserve companies of the 98th regiment, returned on Tuesday last to Brecon, from Llandilo and on Wednesday the Troop of the 14th Light Dragoons, which had been staying at Llandilo, arrived at Brecon, and left on Thursday morninc for Abergavenny. ° SUDDEN DEATH.-On Thursday, as Mr. Wood, of the Rough Farm, in the parish of Cowarn, Herefordshire, was talk- ing to a person near the Canal at Ledbury, he suddenly sunk on the earth, and immediately expired. A Dispensation has passed the Great Seal, enabling the Rev. Canon Matthews, B.D. Vicar of Linton, Herefordshire, to hold therewith the consolidated Vicarage of Woolhope-and- Fownhope, in the same county,—to which he has been presented by the Dean and Chapter of Hereford Cathedral. CAUTION.—A person (a licensed hawker) is now travel- ling the country with cloths, &c., and recently favoured Brom- yard with a visit. His method of doing business is to enter a pubhc-house in a feigned state of intoxication, and he makes a point of dealing with those who are really so. It happened he met with a customer to his mind at Bromyard, and sold him a piece of Irish cloth, which he assured him was well worth 50s for 30s. The purchaser, on returning home, produced his bargain to his wife, when it proved to be a piece of calico, glazed and folded in the usual way Irish cloths are, and worth at most 10s. A pursuit took place, and the hawker was apprehended and con- veyed before a magistrate, but for want of sufficient proof of the fraud he was liberated, with a strict charge from the magistrate to be more honest in his dealings in future.—Hereford Journal. Glocester Races are fixed for the 20th and 21st of this month. On Saturday se'nnight, a gang of utterers of base coin were busily employed in their vocation in the city of Gloucester, and in several instances were successful in taking in the unwary. Two of the gang, however, (a man and woman), were pointed out to the police, and after being watched for some time, the wo- man was detected passing a counterfeit half-crown. They were both promptly taken into custody, and on searching them, thir- teen other base half-crowns were found upon the person of the man. They have both been fully committed for trial. The ap- prehension of these two seemed to scare the rest of the party, who instantly made a precipitate retreat from the city. A respite during his Majesty's pleasure-has been for- warded to the proper quarter for John Harris, condemned at our late Assizes for maliciously presenting a pistol, and attempting to discharge the same, with intent to kill W. Watkins. But for this merciful interposition, the execution of this unfortunate criminal would have taken place at twelve o'clock this day.- Gloucester Journal. In our last paper we detailed the particulars of a daring and ferocious attack made upon the keeper of the turnpike-gate, in Barton-street, near Gloucester and we are now enabled to state that the perpetrators of the outrage are now in custody. In the course of Saturday night, a youth named John Morgan, was apprehended on suspicion. At first he denied all knowledge of the transaction, but subsequently confessed his guilt, and gave information which led to the securing of John Warner, his des- peiate companion. When examined before the county Magis- trates on Monday, they both persisted in making a full confession not only of their being guilty of the attack upon the gate-keeper, but also that they were the persons who assaulted and robbed Mr. Daniell, at the Spa Gates, near Gloucester, on the night of the 1st of August. They have been fully committed for trial on both charges, and other accusations of a similar nature are likely to be brought against them. ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE.-On Monday se'nnight, about halt-past ten a woman jumped into the float, near the draw- bridge, Bristol. One of the watchmen on St. Augustine's back, hearing the plunge, sprung his rattle, and by the assistance of some persons in a boat she was rescued her pocket was found filled with stones, and she requested to be allowed to carry her intention into effect, as she was tired of the miserable life she led. She was left in custody of the night constable, having been re- fused admission into two public-houses where she was conducted. On Sunday evening last, a female passenger of the City of Bristol steam-packet, fell overboard in Cumberland Basin, and in all probability would have met a watery grave, but for the intrepidity and activity of Capt. Finlayson, who instantly pulled off his jacket, jumped in after her, and succeeded in bringing her again on board. This is the sixth instance in which Captain Finlayson has been the fortunate instrument of saving life in the Floating Harbour at Bristol. On Friday evening two boys went into the shop of Mr. Bulgin, bookseller, in Corn-street, Bristol, and while one of them inquired if they sold drawings, the other secreted some books about his person, but being observed, he was immediately taken into custody. This juvenile delinquent does not exceed 7 years of age, and appeared to be much terrified at the conse- quences of his detection. DUTY ON CANDLES.—The following "General Order," dated the 24th of August, 1831, has been issued from the Excise Office r—" In consequence of a communication from the right honourable the Lords Commissioners of his Majesty's-Treasury, dated the 10th instant, signifying that the proposition now sub- mitted to Parliament by the Chancellor of the Exchequer will lead to the cessation of the duty on candles on the 1st of Janu- ary, 1832. Ordered, that those traders who availed themselves of the indulgence granted by general order of the 26th of Febru- ary last, of securing tallow candles in store under the excise locks, instead of paying the duty thereon immediately, be allowed to take the whole or any part of such candles out of store at any time on or before the 10th of October next, on payment of the duty thereon that the indulgence of storing candles without payment of duty be continued till the 1st of January next; and that the parties be allowed to take out the whole or any part of the candles so stored at any time between the 10th of October and 1st of January next, on payment of the duty. But the parties must be distinctly informed, that no person will be allowed to take out such candles more than once before the 10th of Oc- tober, and once more between that date and the 1st of January next."

DIVISION OF COUNTIES.-—The following is Lord AI- thorp's reply to the remonstrance of the Northern Political Union, respecting the clause for the division into two parts of those counties which are to send four members:- Sir,—I think more importance is attached to the division of counties than it deserves. The landed interest gain undoubtedly very much by ihe addition which the Bill makes to the county Members, and among the landed interest the great landed pro- prietors will also be considerable gainers but I doubt much whether a great landed proprietor who could influence the election in a division of a county, would not have an equal chance in a county wheie there are to be four Members elected. For instance I will suppose the case, where, as things are at present, a great landed proprietor returns one Member out of two for a county if there were to be four members for the same county, he would probably return two. In the division of the county where his property lies he could do no more generally, I think, he would do less for it seldom happens that any one man's influ- ence is so overwhelming, even in the smallest agricultural districts, that there is not an independent force to oppose to him, who would not submit to his shutting them out of the representation. If they did, it would only be in the case where lie not only had very large property indeed, but was very popular also. You will see by this, that I am not very anxions about this clause for its own sake I like it because I think it will diminish expense I should not like it if I thought it would give any undue influence to the aristocracy, because that is what I have always opposed; but though I do not feel very anxious about it, as 1 have said, for its own sake, T am anxious about it, and supported it earnestly, because I think it will conduce very much to carrying the Reform Bill. I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient humble servant, Downing-street, August 21. ALTHOEP.
To the Editor of the Monmouthshire Merlin. JVIR. EDITOR ,N ature has so abundantly bestowed her trea- sures of beauty and grandeur on our neighbourhood, and has supplied us with so copious a store of whatever can interest the antiquary, that strangers and tourists are fully satisfied to cull the richest and most luxuriant oS our flowers, and to leave the rest to our own more leisurely inspection and enjoyment. It would not argue prejudice or presumption to say, that there are specimens of Nature's gifts, and of the venerable" ruins of Time, within a few miles of this town, which are seldom, perhaps never, visited by strangers, though confessedly in search of the pictu- resque and beautiful, but which would be of themselves quite adequate, in number and excellence, to secure to many extensive distr cts of England a name and character the very opposite to that which now attaches to them. And yet how few even of the inhabitants and natives of our lovely country themselves ever find time or inclination to visit these favoured spots, or to draw delight from the neglected treasures of nature or antiquity which invite us on every side. I am particularly struck with this reflection whenever I compare the Wye with the Monnow, in their points either of resemblance or of contrast. The Beauties of the Wye," the Scenery of the Wye," the Banks of the Wye, are celebrated thro' England far and wide. The Monnow is known (if known at all) only as one of the Wye's tributary streams, and as deriving all its im- portance, or even title to be mentioned, from having given its name to our town. There is a river in Monmouth, and there is a river in Macedon." The name of the river at Monmouth is Wye. Neither poet nor tourist deigns to know any other; and yet there is another well worth the attention and favour of both. There are scenes on the Monnow of no second-rate beauty; perhaps not surpassed by any thing of the kind on the Wye, or any other English or Welsh river with which I am ac- quainted. I do not mean, on the one hand, to compare any scenery on the Monnow, or on its tributary streams, with the Rocks of Cold Well, with New Weir, with Persfield, or Wynd- cliff; nor am I alluding, on the other hand, to any of those sweet. and retired modest beauties on the Monnow, to which almost every bend introduces the pedestrian as he traces that river from its mouth towards Treget, and Skenfrith, and Gros- mont; and further still. I would now confine my observation to the scenery which surrounds its cradle, and to the vallies through which its tributary streams flow from the mountains that give them birth. Those very mountains are known to many of your readers neither by name nor in character the streams of our own Monnow are equally strange to many of us with the rivers in the interior of Africa. Does this argue well for our taste, or for our love of our father-land ? If there is a Monmouth man, to whose mind the same sentiments have not again and again involuntarily presented themselves (when sojourning in a foreign and distant land) which dictated his songs to the Swiss minstrel, with him, as a fellow countryman, I confess myself to have little of common feeling. Oh! when shall I see the land of my birth? It's the loveliest land on the face of the earth. I have frequently, on former occasions, endeavoured to employ your columns, Mr. Editor, as a means of exciting in our country- men somewhat of livelier interest in the antiquities and natuial characteristics of our neighbourhood. My attempt, 1 fear, has been eminently unsuccessful. If, however, you think a few words written, without any pretensions to the higher powers of description, with the view of introducing your readers to a more familiar acquaintance with the Monnow from its source and in its progress likely to be acceptable, I shall have much pleasure in making the attempt in your next.' Your obedient servant, MON UMETHENSIS. [We shall be happy to receive the promised communications from our respected correspondent.—ED.]
