THE ||IomnoutbFiii'c NRWI'ORT, SATURDAY. MAY 29, 1858. THE excitement in London on yesterday evening week was great—the anxiety in the Provinces on the following morning considerable. Since the days of the Reform struggle and the Corn-law league, no debate in Parliament excited more intense interest in the public mind than that on Mr. CARDAVELL S motion, "that Ministers should be censured for the rebuke administered to the Governor-General of India by the President of the Board of Control--Lord ELLENBO- BOUGII." To censure would have been to dismiss, unless the country were appealed to by Lord DERBY, in all but the throes of the dissolution of the Govern- ment. A calling of a new Parliament at the present moment, with the nation just recovering from the effects of the greatest panic it has seen for nearly half a century, would neither have been a politic nor a desirable event; while the evoking of those angry feelings which a general election must more or less cause-the scenes of inebriety, and the dealing out of bribes-not, alas unknown among many of the con- stituencies of the country, would have made all classes lament the necessity, except those that would profit by the strife-the- going to the country" so soon after the calling of the present Parliament. It was < understood, however, that Ministers were firm in their resolution to move for a new trial, and to go before a jury, not of Lord PALMEKSTON'S, but of their own impanelling. This added much to the interest abroad, aud when it was learned that the field that up to Friday had been so well foughten, had been aban- doned, nay, fled from, by Mr. CARDWELL, his forces, and his backers, thee certainly was great joy and gladness on the one side-sorrow, gloom, and all but despair on the other. There is no disguising the fact—it would be miserable affectation to deny it- Lord DERBY'S government have had a signal triumph, and their "rivals for rule" a signally proportionate defeat. We should greatly lament this, if we consi- dered the LIBERAL cause would suffer in consequence of the discomfiture of those who were so long consi- dered-so long greatly vaunted of as its chiefs. But such will not be the case. The fight was factious- the object, India-the purpose, place. The days of Whig and Tory are past, and men gain nothing by shouting "liberty," when they only mean self- aggrandizement. The country has become schooled in political adversity. It once revelled in hope, but only afterwards to taste of the bitter cup of disappoint- ment. It got a reform bill from Earl GREY-found I faulty and incomplete in the end, but for giving which the noble Earl, for twenty years the great and consis. tent enemy of placemen and corruption, was brought with acclamation to the head of the government, and inaugurated his Premiership by establishing a reign of Nepotism unexampled in the annals oi the coun- try. Where there was a nook, there was to be a GREY; where there was a guinea of the public money to be clutched, a GREY was not seen to refuse it. The RUSSELLS and ELLIOTTS have had their share, when the late Sir ROBERT- PEEL was made to give place to Lord JOHN RUSSELL, and we never could learn what great and signal advantage the coun- ry has derived from the talents and patriotism of the honourable gentlemen who daily turned their faces, no to the East to worship, but to Che-sham-place to see what favourite ministerial breeze would blow upon them! Lord PALMERSION'S taking office when he did, rendered Lord JOHN RUSSELL'S accession to office impossible, and if the noble Lord had been less imperious in his tone, and less brusque in his manner —more for the people and less for his order-he would have stood, as it were, on a rock, and his position would have been unassailable. But he was the reverse of all this, and he fell, and up to the moment of his fall—truth will have no cause to blush, we think, when it declares that Lord JOHN RUSSELL was forming a party, intriguing and doing all that in his very clever and very astute Lordship's power lay to trip up Lord PALMERSTON'S heels, and take his place Both noble lords have since seen the errors of their ways-said "Brother, brother, we have been both in the wrong," and have pledged the loving cup" at Cambridge-house, drank Down with the DERBY, and up with the Coalition flag But, alas! they have tried and they have failed. The DEUBT has not only run the course, but was the first to arrive at the winning post. But the race is not finished-there will be other starts, and the victory will not be und sputed, and, we trust, not a barren one. The Liberal members of the Houo¡e of Com- mons hold the scales in their own hands, and it is for them to decide who shall be the Ministers of the Crown. The present Government will, we have no doubt, have the tide of the Session but the next year they must have a policy-they must be prepared with measures of real importance and utility to the country, or their tenure of office will not be worth three months' purchase. The nation wants a large measure of REFORM, and it must have it. There must be a proper Government for India formed, and a re- modelling of both our army and navy systems; and, finally, all patronage must not be for the governing classes. Will Lords PALMERSTON and RUSSELL pre- sent themselves before the House in 1859, recom- mending and advocating such great national measures ? If so, who will successfully oppose their advent to power ? Certainly not Lord DERBY and the present advisers of the Crown. WE cannot say that General OUTRAM'S despatch to Lord CANNING, which so opportunely arrived on Fri- day last, was the salvation of ,\Iinisters, for even before it came, their tone was lofty and their looks defiant. They had left the battle, it may be said, to be fought by their auxiliaries and irregu- lar forces up to a certain point; but some of their best speakers were in reserve, and pre. pared to take their adversaries in front and flank. KELLY had not spoken, nor had DISRAELI replied, but General OUTRAM'S state paper-and it may be justly called so-left Mr. CARDWELL and his sup- porters not an inch of debateable ground to stand upon, and they knew it—and all the indifference that rising Liverpool gentleman showed to the appeals made to him by members of his own party, to with- draw his motion, was mere bogh-sti am- clap- trap- all done for theatrical, if not picturesque, effect. The day was lost—the game was up, and no one knew that better than Lord PALMERSTON himself, and his counsel to the promisiug young statesman was the subject of rehearsal some short time before—behind the scenes General OUTRAM'S views have been anticipated and impressed over and over upon the mind of England by the free and unbiassed press of the country. We have over and over again raised our voices against confiscation, and advocated the necessity of a policy of conciliation for India. Lord ELLENBOROUGH acted no doubt indiscreetly in pub- licly censuring Lord CANNING; but his views are those of OUTRAM, and we cannot see, if they be adopted, why his should be deuounced. Lord ELLEN- BOROUGH may be impetuous—may be too ambitious of excelling in style, but his views, we think, are sound, and in the end we are persuaded will be acted upon, if we are not to have many Palafoxes of Oude crying like the Palafox of Spain—" War! War War! to the knife!" In Sir JAMES OUTRAM'S belief, there are not a dozen landholders in the pro- vince of Oude who have not borne arms against us, or sent a representative to the Durbar, or assisted the rebel government with men or money. The effect of the proclamation would therefore be to confiscate the entire proprietary right in the soil; and this being the case, it would of course be hopeless to attempt to enlist the landholders on the side of order; on the contrary, it is his firm conviction that as soon as the chiefs and talookdars become acquainted with the determination of the Government to confiscate their rights, they will betake themselves at once to their domains, and prepare for a desperate and prolonged resistance. Is England prepared for this ? Is she prepared for this war to the knife ? Why, instead of sending out soldiers at the rate of one thousand a month to India, we must be prepared to double or treble the number, if we would bring Oude and the rebels under our Sovereign's sway; but "if the Zemindars of Oude," says Sir JAMES OUTRAM, be given back their lands, they will at once aid us in restoring order, and a police will soon be organized with their co-operation, which will render unnecessary the presence of our enormous army to re-establish tranquillity and confidence Woe to the Governor- General-woe to the country, that will neglect such advice. Has history never spoken of threatened American confiscations before the Declaration of Independence was even thought of-of subsequent defeat, and the loss of an empire. But history is an old almanac to some men who are legislators, and who would call themselves—Statesmen X '.<-t j f
IflCitl Jitttllipxt. It will be seen by advertisement that ten- ders are required for the erection of a new borough dis- pensary. Builders are desired to leave their estimates at Mr. R. F. Woollett's, on the 9th of June. RAILWAY FACILITIES. — An advertisement announces special facilities on the Monmouthshire and South Wales Railway Companies lines, for parties from the Hills and other districts, desiring to visit the Great Agricultural Exhibition at Cardiff. -Parties going to Cardiff, IÏII Newport, will find the rates for to and fro journeys very moderate. Excursion trains will run on the Rhymney line during the Bath and West of England Agricultural Show at Cardiff. The fares will be cheap for the double journey, and live stock, &c., will only be charged for at half the usual rates. THE MONMOUTHSHIRE REFORMATORY.—The alteration in the buildings recently obtained possession of for the purposes of this institution is being proceeded with and it is anticipated that the reformatory will be ready for opening about the end of July. Wallett's circus will visit this town on Monday. The troupe is a fine one, and Mr. Wallett' sown reputation as a jester is great in every part he has visited. FLORAE AND FANCY BAZAAB.—The friends of the Total Abstinence movement in Newport intend to n°i ik their Hall, in Llanartb-street, ou the Jcb, 10th and 11th of June. They have bepn fortunate in securing the patronage of Lady Morgan and Mrs. Powell a ™easure which will doubtless render their project suc- cessful. The object contemplated is the liquidation of tho debt on the Temperance H-,tll.-See advt. NEWPORT BURIAL ROARD.-The monthly meeting on Wednesday was attended by the Rev Edward Hawkins, chairman Alderman Latch. Mr. H J Davis, Mr. L. B. Moore, and the clerk, Mr. J. F. Mullock. After the minutes of the last meeting were read, the specification and estimate of work required to be done at the cemetery were considered, and it was resolved to accept the tender of Mr. Thomas Richards at £ 32. with the exception of £ 1 10s. for tiling the chapels, such work to be day work. The roof of the unconsecrated chapel abutting the bell turret is to be stripped, and a lead fillet to be inserted under the freestone, and the turret to be turned all required. The roof and tower of the unconsecrated chapel are to be repaired, the slates to be painted, &c. and the cottage to be painted and papered. Mr. CharleB Oliver's tender for printing new table of fees was accepted. Several bills were ordered to be paid, which concluded the business. BRISTOL DISTRICT COURT OF BANKRUPTCY, TUESDAY.—(Before Mr. Commissioner West)—Re James and Roberts, Newport, builders.—This was a sitting for last examination. Mr. Stone (instructed by Mr. Blakey, of Newport) appeared for the assignees, and Mr. C. Leech for the bankrupts. A very long examination of Mr. Batchelor, of Newport, the bankrupts' attorney, the bank- rupts themselves, and IVilliain James, the father of the bankrupt James, took place, but his Honour intimated that for the ends of justice the enqniry should, for the present, be considered a private one. The result was that, after considerable doubt as to whether the elder James should not be committed for perjury, and the bankrupts adjourned sine die in consequence of the unsatisfactory nature of their accounts, the case was adjourned for a month, the bankrupts being ordered in the meantime to amend their balance sheet and cash account. POLICE COURT, THURSDAY.—(Before Alder- man Evans, R. F. Woollett, and George Gething, Eaqrs.) -Henry Williams pleaded guilty to stealing coal, the pro- perty of Mr. xl. Gregory, and was, in the discretion of the Magistrates, discharged, in consequence of his character. He was cautioned as to his future conduct.—John Hone was fined 20s., or in default fourteen days' imprisonment, He was cautioned as to his future conduct.—John Hone was fined 20s., or in default fourteen days' imprisonment, for drunkenness and indecent conduct.—James Cavill, of the Rising Sun, Baneswell, was fined 20s. and costs, for allowing spirits to be consumed in his beerhouse.—Wm. Jones, of the Fox and Hounds beerhouse, for permitting soldiers to be drinking and fighting in his house on Sunday evening, was fined 10s. and costs.—Mary Ann Jarren was charged with stealing a pair of boots from John Flowers, boot and shoemaker, Commercial-street. The boots were found on her shortly after she had left the shop, which she entered under pretence of making a purchase. She pleaded guilty. Sentence, twenty-one days to hard labour. One or two cases were reinanded the others are not worthy of mention. M OZART'S TWELFTH MASS.—We are pleased to observe that the members of the Newport Sacred Har- monic Society, after a diligent and careful study of this fine composition,intend to perform it in public,at the Town Hall. on the 11th proximo. The success which has at- tended the rehearsals, under the direction of Mr. Groves, the conductor, and Herr Pfeiffer, the leader of the band, places it beyond doubt that the forthcoming entertain- ment will fnlly sustain the society's well-earned reputa- tion. Full-band accompaniments are announced, and we have no doubt that Herr Pfeiffer's energetic efforts to promote the efficiency of the instrumentalists will ensure L their being creditably given.-See advt. SUMMER ASSIZES.—Mr. Justice Coleridge and M Ijuptive Byles are the judges for this circuit at the next assizes. IT is gratifying to be able to state tha fewer charges arising out of drunkenness. &c., were brought before the magistrates on Thursday than has been the case for some years past. The police acted during the holidays with their accustomed forbearance and discre- tion, and the measures adopted by Superintendent Hux- table were efficient in every respect. We have the super- intendent's authority for stating that a considerable decrease of drunkenness and disorderly conduct has taken place among the Irish in this town since the formation of the Temperance society among them by the Rev. Mr. Richardson. There has, too, been a satisfactory and sen- sible improvement in their homes and domestic habits, all of which must be attributed to the admirable and un- ceasing exertions made by the rev. gentleman and his colleagues to that end. DRUM AND FIFE BANDS.—Two or three of these bands are now in course of practice in this town, and the streets 'occasionally resound with their performances. Complaints, however, are made of the unseasonable hours at which the perambulations of the band take place, being sometimes as late as eleven o'clock at night. STOW FAIR.—The annual mart for live stock and the pleasure fair took place on Thursday. The former was held in the Cattle Market, which was thronged with farmers, dealers, and spectators. Business com- menced at an early hour, and was conducted briskly. Of fat stock, the show was scanty, although there were some fine oxen belonging to Mr. Hugh Morgan, of Newport, and some fine steers, the property of Mr. Powell, of The Gaer. For store cattle, the demand was not great and in this, as in other departments, symptoms of a reaction were apparent. Cows, with calves brought from £10 to £ 15; and steers ranged from £ 10 to £ 18. Mutton and lamb were in plentiful supply, a fair proportion being from Ireland. Some of the fat store sheep were prime specimens, and fetched 6Ad. to 7d. and 7d. per lb. The horse department presented a tolerable display of midd e- class animals. Good colts were easily disposed of. Prices, generally were lower, except as regarded cart horses, which maintained their value. The stock on offer com- prised-Cattle. 317; calves, 62; sheep, 777, pigs, 194 and horses 166. Prices, on the whole, may be quoted ac- cording to those which obtained at the market on Wednesday. The pleasure fair was held in the usual place, just without the borough. It presented the custo- mary features, and gave rise to the scenes inseparable from such occasions. The shows were perhaps rather fewer than ordinary, but the drinking booths propor- tionately increased. There were sparring rings, where the Lancashire Chicken" and the Irish Pet" exhibited their feats of skill. The whole proceedings passed off very quietly, and only a few persons were apprehended. THE CATTLE MARKET, on Wednesday, in con- sequence of the succeeding day's fair, was poorly supplied and thinly attended.

THE IRON AND COAL TRADES.—Although a single week cannot be expected to produce an entire change in the state of business throughout our large district, still a very peeceptible alteration has occurred here within the last few days. It may be only one of those delusive spasmodic revivals to which we had oecasion to refer last week, but the present consequences at least are satisfactory, and part of the dreary pi-ofpect which surrounded us is re- moved. The docks begin to be full of shipping once more, and at the present time rather large quantities of railway iron are being sent away. The supply of coal is still larger than the demand, but owners seem to feel more confidence. and to entertain less apprehension of a long continuance of depression. We cannot conceal the fact that within the past tew months hopes have been excited by similar inci- dents, on!y to be disappointed by another change, which appeared to place us farther than ever from the desired point. The slightest signs of activity were regarded as the forerunners of a certain period of prosperity, but, with scarcely an exception, these expectatious hove not yet be- come realised. In individual cases support may have been received sufficient to prevent any difficulties from being ex- perienced but these instances are rare, and few indeed are the ironmasters who have not suffered unavoidable losses. We can only repeat our hope that the present indications of the approach of a mo e favourable time will lead to a sub- stantial result, and that we shnll spec dily pass through an unfortunate season. Although the demand from Germany and France-both large consumes of iron, &c., from this district is by no means according to the usual rate, still the preference always s'ao«n for our produce continues to be manifested. The German demand is almost as important to some works as the American and the fact of both being uncertain just now ol ei'ales, of course, disadvantageous^. Since our list report, however, several orders have been re- ceived, giving an impe'us to tra-le in one or two directions. The I redegar Company always do a large business nitb the Contiuenr, their railway iron being in great request. In France the annual consumption of it is somewh at large, but latterly as may be supposed, not so much has been sent. The company, as has been recently shown, have to thank, in no small degree, the narrow policy of the French ironmasters for their success .-Mni?ig Journal. THE LAST DRAWING-ROOM. The Court Journal of Saturday last gave a list of those present at her Majesty's drawing-room on the 15th inst. We extract the following from our contemporary's description of the costumes worn :-Duchess of Beaufort—costume de cour composed of a train of white glace, lined with silk, very elegantly trimmed with blonde and vert Azoff crape cor- sage to correspond, with blonde bouquet of white lilac and diamonds; skirts of tulle over glace silk, with tv im- mings of vert Azoff and blonde. Coiffure of ostrich feathers, blonde lappets, wreath of white lilacs, and dia- monds. Lady Geraldine Somerset—costume de cour, composed of a train of white and gold brocaded silk, lined with silk, trimmed with tulle and gold ribbon corsage to correspond, with blonde and gold, bouquet of poppies and gold wheat skirts of tulle, with gold sparkled L Rcai-f. and grvi lands of poppies and gold wheat. Couture of ostrich feathers, lappets, and wreath of poppies a" ^°' wheat. Lady Hall, of Llanover—a body and train ot white gros de Naple, bordered with the feathers of the r, 0 8w'an and pheasant, edged with alternate bows of blue and white ribbon, and sprays composed of flowering grass, combined with sprigs of gorse in bloom, apple iblossortis, cowslips, and the blue wild veronica petticoat 1of white tu le, with double skirt over blue silk, looped up with blue and white ribbon, and a robing of the same, adorned with chatelaines of similar wild flowers, ending in sprays. Head-dross, tiara of diamonds and blue velvet, feathers and lappets; necklace of blue velvet, and dia- monds. Lady Raglan had, perhaps, the richest train of any in all this brilliant assembly. The ground w as dark blue silk, but it was so covered with gorgeous gold em- broidery that very little of it was visible. The whole fabric was quite eastern in its magnificence.
TOttfMitirt* tn £ Uufpott This general and favourite holiday was this year in a great measure marred by the unfavourable state of the an(l young and old, we have no doubt, expe- rienced^ much disappointment. Excursions trains by the various railways to all parts of the district had been announced at extremely reasonable fares, and most of the trade establishments in this town suspended business for the benefit of a numerous class but an almost unceasing downfall of rain throughout Monday prevented that pleasure and enjoyment out-of-doors which are invariably anticipated or experienced. A considerable number of persons determined to brave the elements, and quitted and entered the town by railway, the less resolute—but pro- bably the more wise—remained at home, to console them- selves as best they might. The streets certainly presented some indications of a holiday, from the hoisting of flags, a club procession, &c., but the real Whitsuu ide appear- ance was not to be met with. Still several gatherings and entertainments passed off as well as could be expected, as may be gleaned from the following particulars :— THE SCHOOLS. One feature especially we regretted to miss—the annnal gathering of the children belonging to the Sunday School Union, amounting to some 2,500 in number. The little ones must have been sadly disappointed, but the kind entertainments provided for them in the after part of the day was some compensation. As the public prome- nade was prevented, and all display out of the question, the scholars were formed into three divisions, and taken respectively to the Dock-street, Tabernacle, and Ebenezer chapels. At each of these places, affectionate and instructive addresses were given by ministers and lay gentlemen, and hymnaand other pIeces sung by the children who afterwards returned to their respective chapels and school rooms. AT THE IABEBNACLE, tea was served to about 300 juveniles, and subsequently to considerably above 200 teachers and friends. A public meeting followed, the ^aj virUrc^' Thomas Gillman, presiding, and Messrs. W. Graham, Thomas, Roberts, and Furney, being the speakers upon the occasion. AT THE BAPTIST CHAPEL, a public meeting took place in the commodious school-room, after the tea. The chair was taken by S. M. Phillips, Esq and addresses were delivered by the Rev. Messrs. Jackson, of Caerleon, and Brown, of Birmingham, and Messrs. Salter, Rowe, H. Phillips, Roper, J. A. Williams, Witts, &c THE CHILDREN of the school attached to the New In- dependent Church meeting at the Towu-hall, were assem- bled at the Temperance-ball, Llanarth-street, whence they were taken to the Ebenezer chapel, and on their return between one and two hundred partook of an ample supply of tea and cake. At the public meeting subsequently held, under the presidency of the Rev. F. Pollard, a number of appropriatel speeches were made. In the course of the evening, a report was read, showing the progressive in- crease of the school, connected with which at the present time are more than 200 teachers and children, with two cluses containing about thirty young men and women. THE CHILDREN of the Weisleyan Methodist Sunday School, Commercial-street, were bountifully supplied with tea and cake at the chapel. During the afternoon they were appropriately addressed, and joined in singing hymns selected for the occasion. After the children had been regaled, the teachers took tea together, and spent the evening in consultation upon subjects connected with their interesting and benevolent work. The public meet- ing on behalf of the school will be held at a later period of the year. AT THE WESLEYAN METHODIST CHAPEL, PILL, about 300 children took tea. They were addressed by the Rev. J. Harding, and they sang prettily several pieces. The teachers and friends also sat down together, a public meeting being afterwards held, presided over by Mr. Prewett, and addressed by the minister, Mr. Pyer, Mr. Cock, Mr. Honey, &c. ABOUT 200 children partook of a repast provided at Dock-street chapel, and in the course of the evening, a congregational meeting was held. The Rev. Alfred Bourne, B.A., officiated as chairman. Mr. Dixon read the report of the school, which was favourably alluded to. Messrs. W. M. Jack, Edward Thomas, Thomas Davies, T. Turner, J. Davies, C. Lewis, T. Jones, and C. Reed de- livered addresses, and were attentively listened to. THE CHILDREN of the Wesleyan Reform School were treated to a liberal supply of tea, cake, &c., at the chapel, Hill-street. Here, also, a meeting followed, the speakers being Messrs. Henley (chairman), Ewins, Watkins, Mock, Jobling, and Merchant. The school is in a very satisfac- tory position no less than 200 children attending. TEA was provided at the Mariners' Chapel, of which 60 children partook. This was the result of a private sub- scription. THE CHURCH SCHOOLS. -The children belonging to the national and infant schools congregated in the Na- tional School-rooms, which bad been tastefully decorated for the occasion. Suitable remarks were addressed to the little throng, and a bountiful tea was then provided. This having been concluded, a most interesting meeting was held. In the intervals between the addresses, a va- riety of compositions were sung, with a piano-forte accompaniment by Mr. Tasker, organist of St. Paul's. The Revds. Edward Hawkins, vicar, J. T. Wrenford, W. Feetham, T. P. Causton, &c., were the speakers upon the occasion. The assistance of the ladies, schoolmistresses, and others, was acknowledged by votes of thanks. The children of Trinity Church, Pill, were provided in the same liberal manner as the other schools in connection with the church. AT THE WELSH BAPTIST CHAPEL nearly 140 children took tea. More than 120 children were regaled at the Ebenezer; a large number at the Temple, and at the Pill Reform Wesleyan Chapel and about 60 in addition to the teachers, at Mount Zion. At the latter place, the Rev. Mr. Griffiths, Mr. Griffiths, and several teachers delivered addresses. At other schools, also, a similar gratifying course was observed. THE numerous children in attendance at the schools connected with tbe Roman Catholic Chapel were, as usual, treated to tea, &c. The addresses to them and their parents and fiends afterwards were calculated to produce a beneficial effect. Dos WORKS SCHOOL.—The children of this school, numbering about 200, attended Divine service at St. Paul's Church, after which they returned to the school- room, at the works, where a plentiful supply of tea and cake was provided for them through the liberality of Messrs. J. J. Cordes and Co., the proprietors of the estab- lishment. The large and commodious room was decorated with flags, banners, and evergreens, under the superin- tendence of Messrs. Reynolds and Phillips, and though the unfavourable state of the weather prevented any out door sports, the happy faces of the children, together with the hearty cheers which accompanied the vote of thanks to their kind patrons, fully showed how thoroughly they en- joyed their entertainment. After tea several sacred pieces were sung by the children, Mr Reynolds accompanying them on the harmonium. Addresses were delivered by Messrs. Castle, Phillips, and Reynolds, after which the National Anthem was sung, and the children dispersed, evidently pleased and delighted. At 6 p.m., the teachers and senior scholars took tea together, snd in the course of the evening other pieces of music were suag. Much praise was awarded to Mr. Day for several floral decorations, was awarded to Mr. Day for several floral decorations, tastefully arranged by him on the table Mrs. Jenkins and Miss Swan were deserving of much credit, for the very excellent arrangements made by them for the com- fort and enjoyment of both the children and teachers. The entire expenses of this school, as well as. the day school, are borne by the proprietors of the Dos Works, whose example in providing commodious and suitable school promises, for thegia'uitous instruction of the boys connected with their establishment, as well as the interest they take in the Sabbath school, is worthy of imitation by those whose position enables them thus to benefit the working-classes generally. THE THEATRE. Besides the interesting proceedings just detailed, there were entertainments of another nature placed before the public. A mid-day, as well as evening performance, took place at the Theatre, both being remarkably fully at- tended. Mr. R. F. Smith, Mr. Huntley, and Miss Shalders, were very effective in the farce A Kiss in the Dark." It was a clever performance. AN EXHIBITION OF WAX-WORK FIGURES, Near the Salutation, attracted a large number of persons. GALA AT THE CATTLE MARKET. In this commodious space, a fet6 and gala, representing the siege, storm, and fall of Delhi, and under the manage- ment of Professor Burn, pyrotechnist to the Bristol and Clifton Zoological Gardens, was announced for the evening, but here again the rain interfered, and the raising of the siege until the next evening was the result THE UNITED BROTHERS BENEFIT SOCIETY. The members of this society celebrated their-anniver- sary in the usual manner At ten o'clock, they assembled to the number of 150 at their club-house, the Rodnev Arms Inn, Cross-street, and about eleven o'clock formed themselves into procession, headed by the Newport Band, and, with a splendid banner, representing St.Patrick, and flags, marched to St. Mary's Catholic Church, where Divine service was celebrated by the Rev. R. Kichardson, and an address delivered by the Rev. J. Akaroyd, which was listened to with much interest. Service being con- cluded, the members again formed themselves into proces- sion, and paraded the town. They arrived at their club- house about three o'clock, where a dinner in Host Evans's best style awaited them. After dinner, the usual toasts were given and responded to, and a pleasant evening was spent. THE CIRCUS. On Tuesday, a favourable change took place, and the weather was all that could be desired The sun shone brilliantly throughout the day, and numerous holiday- keeping individuals were to be observed. Cooke's circus entered the town at noon, in procession The morning performance, as well as that in the evening, took place in a large tent on the Cardiff-road, and the announcement that the great horse-taming secret would be exposed, doubtless contributed to bring together a large portion of the audience, and the challenge thrown out to sceptics to produce a vicious animal to be experimented upon. In the course of the performance, a fine dai k-grey mare, be- longing to Mr. Charles Phillips, of the King William the Fourth, was led into the circle, displaying, however, very little vice or restiveness. The expositor of the subdu- ing" system first spoke of Mr. Rarey's system, which, he asserted, had been in the possession of, and in use by, Mr. Cooke's ancestors, for many years, and then proceeded with the operation. It consisted in simply strapping up a fore-leg, turning the foot. up towards the knee and then, by means of a bobble"-a rope thrown round the boily of the animal, and connected by a slip-knot round the fetlock with the free fore-leg, (and, apparently, alo having an attachment to the powerful bit iu the mare's mouth) — such an amount of constriction was put upon her by the hand of the operator, who retained his hold of the running-noosed rope, that the head and legs of the animal were gradually drawn together, and after many ineffectual struggles and plunges she was brought first upon her knees and ultimately upon her side. Once down, the animal certainly lay quietly enough, nor did she appear to take the slightest notice of the operator's calls, or the tattoo of a drum beat by a drummer standing upon her prostrate body. She was then led off as—tamed But of this many expressed their doubts. In the evening, the proprietor drove forty horses in hand through the princi- pal thoroughfares, the subsequent performances being witnessed by an audience packed together as closely as it was possible to place them. FETE AND GALA. Professor Burn's representation of the storm and cap- ture of Delhi was given the same evening, in the cattle market. Many of the incidents were effectively delineated. The exhibition was well received, so much so that it was repeated on Wednesday.
MURDER IN DERBYSHIRE.—Thomas Watts and Joseph Morely, who lodged together at Unstone, a few miles from Chesterfield, had a little quarrel about some eggs, which they had for supper. Watts, in fun, nte all the eggs, as Morely did not come to the table, but he paid for them. Some more were prepared for Morley, who grew angry, and broke them on the floor. Watts remon- strated the dispute grew warmer, and at length Morley got Watts against, the wall, and stabbed him in three places. Watts rushed out into the street, and fell down dead. Morley was apprehended, and an inquest has been held on the body of the deceased. After a long investigation, the jury returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against the prisoner. ESCAPE OF A CONVICT FROM CHATHAM DOCKYARD.— A convict, named William Roberts, under sentence of 15 years' penal servitude, effected his escape from Chat- ham Dockyard on Saturday afternoon. The prisoner, with a number of other convicts, was employed on the public works now in progress, when he contrived to elude the vigilance of the warders and also the sentry, and escaped unseen from his gang, when he retired to a private part of the dockyard, and there divested himself of his convict's clothes after which he plunged into the Medway, which is there about a mile in width, with the intention of gaining the woods at Upnor, on the opposite shore. Immediately he was missed, several officers from the prison scoured the neighbourbood in all directions but from the fact of no traces of him having been dis- covered, it is conjectured that he must have been drowned. The following is his official description Height, 5 feet 4i inches age, 26; hair, brown and curly eyes, gray complexion fresh marks, I A.E.' on back, heart on left arm near the elbow, and sundry marks on the calf inside the left leg. Left behind the prison dress, with the exception of his shirt and flanDel." A reward of JE5 has been offered for his capture. A young hippopotamus was born last week in the Jardin des Plantes, at Paris, the only known instance of such an occurrence in Europe. The little thing having attempted to get out of the tank, the descent from the sleeping apartment of the parent hippopotums into tbier bath not being sloped, it had some difficulty in raising its weight out of the water. The mother then came to the rescue, but in her endeavours to assist her little one up the step, managed so to bruise and injure its tender body that it died the same evening. THE CAMBRIDGE HOUSE MEETING. The following letters arising out of the recent debate 11 in the House of Lordi, have been made public, addressed to the editor of the Times:- Sir,—The Prime Minister, in the debate of the 14th, stated that I had attended a political meeting 'on Sun- day at Cambridge House.' The motive was so manifest that I did not interrupt him and contradict his assertion. But so many anonymous writers, relying on the noble lord's accuracy, have assailed me, and are stilt assailing me, that, to set their minds at ease, I request you to allow me to declare, through your columns, that I did not attend any meeting on the Sunday to which he alludes, or on any other Sunday, either at Cambridge- house or elsewhere.—Your obedient servant, "May 21." "SHAFTESBURY. Sir,—My attention has been called to a letter in'the Times of Saturday last, in which, after a week's consi- deration, Lord Shaftesbury writes The Prime Minister, in the debate of the 14th, stated that I had attended a political meeting on Sunday at Cambridge-bouse. The motive was so manifest that I did not interrupt him and contradict his assertion.' "I made no such statement. What I did say it correctly given by your reporter in the following words 'I do not know whether he attended it, but I pre- sume he had communicated to him the result of that Sun- day meeting.' Had I made such a statement publicly and in his hearing, whatever I motive' Lord Shaftesbury may be charitable enough to impute to mp, I should have thought, judging by my own feelings, that, instead of leaving it unnoticed for a week, he would have at once contradicted it in the presence of the assembled Peers, who must have heard the precise expressions used. If he were ultimate !y led to notice the alleged state- ment by the anonymous writers' to whom he refers, he had at least one opportunity subsequent to the date of his letter to you on which he might have done so in my presence in the House of Lords. To most Peers that would have appeared the more courteous mode of pro- ceeding. I m, Sir, your obedient servant, St. James's-square, May 24." DERBY. Sir,-Allow me to add to Lord Derby's quotation the remainder of the passage as stated in the Morning Herald of yesterday That meeting, I am told, was not entirely for religious purposes. I mention it merely as a singular coincidence. On Sunday last a meeting was held at the house of the noble lord (Palmers'on) at which it is supposed (and I believe on very good authority) that the subject of the motion was discussed and it does so happen that the noble earl, intimately and closely connected with the noble viscount, gives on Monday, in this House, notice of his intention to submit a similar resolution.' If Lord Derby will say that, he did not intend'* directly or indirectly, to convey the belief that I had attended such a meeting (though, if he did not, I cannot comprehend why the words were used), I will at once withdraw my remark and express my regret for having made it. A week having elipsed, it was not desirable to trouble the House of Lords with bygone transactions; but, as many letters have boen addressed to me, not only through post, but through the press, I thought it better through the press to answer them. I am, sir, your obedient servant, May 25." HAFTESBUB.Y.
Big Ben" has reappeared in more than his pristine vigour Messrs. Mears, of Whitechapel, have recast him, he has been hung and rung—to the astonishment of the teeming population of that uninviting neighbour- hood. The new Big Ben is ornamented with Gothic figures and tracerp and his tone is perfect-E flat. He is about two tons lighter than he was, and is pronounced all the better for the diminution. THE LATE DUCHESS OF ORL-E.INS.-Te glean the following details of the demise of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Orleans :—Tho Princess had been suffering from a severe cold for some days, and although her in- disposition was complicated by other symptoms, they were attributed to the usual state of the patient, and little was thought of them. On Monday, however, for the first time, Dr. de Muasy thought it is duty to pass the night at Richmond. The pulse of the Duchess alarmed him. The Princess herself, however, was perfectly calm. About ha f-past four in the morning, she was surprised at seeing him still at her bedside. Do you, then, think me s,) ill ?" she. sa,,J. He replied by asking her how she -*T 1 do not feel very ill," said the Duchess, i ce ilussy was not satisfied he considered her state as serious, but in no way dangerous. He left the room to give some orders, and in ten minutes after returned. Everything was quiet, and the female attendants were watchii g in silence. He approached the bed-the Duchess had ceased to breathe Life had departed with- out any struggle, and without any premonitory sign of death.-Co?(?-t Joui-nal. FUNERAL OF THE DVCIIESS OF ORLEANS.—The inter- ment of the remains of the late Duchess of Orleans took place on Saturday last, at the Catholic Chapel, erected by Miss Taylor, a short distance from the railway station at Weybride, Surrey, whpre the bodies of the late King Louis Philippe and the Duchess de Nemours are depo- sited. Many eminent Frenchmen, statesmen, and mili- tary men availed themselves of the mournful opportunity to leave the continent for our shores, to testify their res- pect to the fallen Royal Family of France, and to offer the last tribute of esteem for the virtuous Princeaa whom it has pleased Providence to remove from the tur- moil and anxieties of this world. Tbe whole of the members of the ex-Royal Family assembled at the late uche-ss residence at Richmond shortly after nine iat d t8fh f m?urner? and other personages who as- sisted at the funeral met there by ten o'clock. A chamb« in the mansion was prepared as a chapelle ardente, being hung with black draperies and illuminated with high wax tapers. The coffin, placed on a raised platfoim was covered by a velvet pall, on which were emblazoned the armorial escutcheons of the Orleans and Mecklenburg families. In that apartment the preliminary prayers used for the burial of the dead were read by the Rev. Mr. Schvell, the pastor of the Lutheran church, at which the Count de Paris and the Duke de Chartres, and most of the members of the Royal family, were pre- sent, and many of the attendants on the late duchess. On leaving Mr. Paynter's villa, shortly after eleven o'clock, the funeral procession passed over Richmond- bridge, through Twickenham and nanworth, over Walton-bridge, direct to Wcybridge. The church bells of Richmond and the villages through which the funeral passed tolled, out of respect for the departed Princess. A very large concourse of persons collected at different points of the route, and as the members of the ex-Royal fami!y are well known to the inhabitants of the several villages, from their long residence at Twickenham, Claremont, and Richmond, much sympathy was evidently I felt for their sad bereavement. The funeral cortege con- sisted of mute, preceding a mourning coach and two horses, containing the four officiating clergymen. Next cam-the hearse, drawn by six horses, with black velvet trappings and mourning plumes, and hung with the emblazoned and armorial escutcheons of the houses of Orleans and Mecklenburg-Schwerin, escorted by the usual body of pages, &c., bearing the mortal remains of the duchess, enclosed in three coffins. The outer coffin was covered with black velvet and silver ornaments, and the plate bore the following inscription Helene Louise Elizabeth,Vrincesse de Moeklenburg-Schwerin. Nee k Ludwigslust Ie 20 Janvier, 1814, marifee fc Foritainbleau le 30 Mai, 1837, i Ferdinand Philippe d'Orleans, I)uc d'Orleans Prince Royal, veuve le 13 Juillet, 1842. Morte li Richmond Angleterre, le 18 Mai, 1858." Under which were engraved the arms of the Orleans and Mecklenburg families. Then followed nineteen mourn- ing coaches and two horses richly caparisoned. A number of distinguished persons were present. His Royal High- ness the Prince Consort, attended by Lieutenant Colonel Ponsonby, arrived at Weybridge from Osborne some time before the funeral cortege had reached the village from Richmond, in order to be present at the solemn ceremony. TAHITI.—An old pupil of Mr. George, Edge school- master, near Chesterfield, in Derbyshire, writes an in- teresting letter from. Tahiti, an extract from which appears in a local paper. We transfer the following passage to our columns Although Tahiti has been very dull for a long time, it is more, I think, owing to the overabundance of stores, than to the want of trade which, for the population, is very great. Of course as the entrepot of the neighbouring islands, many of'the goods brought here, are again exported; but it is the home trade that supports the greater proportion of the 25 stores there are in it (Papeete, the chief place) at present. The natives number some ten or twelve thou- sand, including the inhabitants of Morea or Eimeo, the adjacent island, 16 miles distant, who are the principal customers. Their inveterate habit of spending all the money they get immediately, and their excessive fond- ness for anything new, in the way of dress, makes trade very brisk all the while they have anything to spend. At first you might suppose it by no means strange for so many thousand people to mf: ain the number of stores but when you are informed t. at nearly the whole of the money these people possess, is derived from labouring for supplying the necessaries of life to the few hundreds of white residents, you will be at a still further loss to account for it. Besides the stores, there about 30 public- houses. Should the dullness continue, several of both must find it unprofitable to remain. Tahiti is a very fine island, on account of its scenery, its climate, and its soil. Sugar, coffee, tobacco, cotton, indigo, &c., of the finest quality could be grown, but the high price of labour, and the restrictive policy of the French govern- ment, whose general idea of colonizing seems to be to make a military prison house of a place, are a sad check to developement. I must say, however, that of late they have manifested a desire to atone for past neglect, by instituting cattle and agricultural shows (with prizes,) to be held next (this) year, offering two prizes for clearing and planting certain portions of land with sugar calle, coffee trees or cotton, and premiums for the exportation of these, when in exoess of a given quantity. It is to be hoped this will have a most beneficial effect.
