RHYS STEPHEN, the eloquent preacher, the instructive lecturer, the bard and patriot—the man of brilliant intellect, of cloudless temper, and of social heart, has passed away from amongst us. The feelings of esteem, affec- tion, and sympathy, with which we are actuated for departed excellence, are, in this instance, rendered melancholy, by a consideration of the fact, that Mr. Stephen has died in poverty -too often,alas the cheerless concomitant of genius-and has left his widow and six children to the humane consideration and mercies of his countrymen, in whose service his best years and energies were spent, zealously and without stint; for all who knew the deceased, are well aware, that his patriotism was as generous as it was unaffected, fervent, and constant. At a meeting held at the room of the Mechanics' Institute, Town Hall, Newport, on the 27th of April, it was resolved- that committees of the friends and admirers of the late Rev. D. R. Stephen, be formed in Newport and other towns of the district, in order to solicit the humane co-operation of a generous public, ever ready to comfort the afflicted and alleviate distress-in order to raise a fund, which may be prudently ap- plied in succouring the family of one whose abilities have been uniformly devoted to the instruction of his fellow-man, and who has performed so distinguished a part on the theatre of human life. Fondly is it hoped that this beneficent work may prosper- that the helpless wail of woe may be calmed and comforted- and that the benefactions of the commiserating, may, in the hour of serious thought, in this life of vicissitude, afford a sunshine to the heart of the willing giver.

It is a well known fact that most persons wear the heels of their boots unevenly, by reason of their treading more on one side than the other, which causes the boot or shoe to fall over on the other side; whereby not only an unsightly appearance is caused, but it occasions them to crack at the side, thereby spoiling them before half-worn out. and, in a great measure, is the means of producing corns. These objections, however, are entirely prevented by Hawkins' Rotary Boot and Shoe Heel. This is effected by turning the heels round occasionally, so that by giving a change of surface to every part of the heels, they are al,vays kept level-repairs are no longer necessary, re-heeling is dispensed with, and the SOLES WILL WEAR CONSIDERABLY LONGER.
