THE DUNMOW FLITCH.—MELANCHOLY COINCIDENCE. -It may be in the recollection of many of our readers, that the wife of Dr. Blackwell, of Cranbrook, Kent, died in the present year, a few months after making a claim for one of the Dunmow Flitches that were presented in July last, by W. H. Ainsworth, Esq. There seems to be a fatality attending the claim, as the secretary to the committee has received a communication from a claimant, who is a most respectable individual, residing at Green- wich, Kent, and who, if life had been spared to his wife, and they had received the much wished-for flitch from Mr. Aiusworth, in 1856, had promised to supply a simi- lar prize himself to any other party who might be enti.. I tied on some future occasion. The communication is as follows:—"Greenwich, Deo 7, 1855.—Dear, Sir,-It is my painful duty to inform you of the decease of my beloved wife the claim will therefore be open to others. How true it is the fairest flowers are first culled! She was a beautiful creature in person, mind, and disposition, Had she been spared till next July, Dunmow would have had a visit from us. With best thanks for your prompt and courteom replies to my letters, I am, &c., P. RICE." —Thus, in the short space of one year, death has de- prived two loving husbands of their partners, and we fairly ask, what lady will now be bold enough to claim the Hitch, when Death stands read v to claim the claimant f ST. PAUL AND ST. BARNABAS.—Da. LUSHINGTON'S JTTDGMENT.—.A subscription, headed by Mr. A. J. Beres- ford Hope, has been opened for the purpose of appealing against Dr. Lushington's decision in reference to the crosses altars, and ornaments at the churches of St. Paul, Knightsbridge, and St. Barnabas, Pimlico.
