WHEN WILL YOU BE MY BRIDE? COME love to our old trysting place, Down by the streamlet's side, Where we in childhood often strayed, To watch the mimic tide. Say, are there king cups as of old, And rushes in the stream, And does love's flower forget-me-not, Stiil on the margin gleam. 'Tis many years since we have roamed Forth to the woodland spring, When you love wandered by my side A young and fragile thing. I've eften borne thee in my arms, When weary you had grown, When yon would pay me with a kiss, And cali me love your own. Then tell me, gentle maiden, tell, Cau you those hours forget ? Ah, no those rosy blushes tell They are remembered yet. Then come love to that cherished spot, Down by the streamlet's side, And whisper to your own true love When you will be his bride. Clydach.

RAILWAY MANAGEMENT. Mr. Thomas Wrigley has just issued a pamphlet in reply t-> objections against a plan for the government and working of a railway," originally brought forward by him. Mr. Wrigley states that his design was first shadowed forth in a letter which appeared in the Times of Feb. 23, 1S5-3, and in August last he sketched it to a meeting of proprietors of the London and North Western Railway. It was afterwards still further brought before pub!ic notice, and many communications were made to the author on the subject. Shareholders in existing companies are, Mr. Wrigley states, "unani- mous in their approval of the plan," although some suggest various alterations in the details. The "objections" co:i.e from what Mr. Wrigley terms the "official" body of proprietors of railway property, and these he combats successfully, we think, in the present pamphlet. Mr. Wrigley's plan for the Government and Working of a Railway" may thus be described in brief outline To place the entire estate of the Company, under a Board of Trustees, who shall hold not less than jESOOO of paid-up stock, and yet in the character of landlord to the property, undertaking the general supervision of the concern. The revenue account is proposed to be placed under the management of a Board of Directors, who shall hold not less than £1000 of paid-up stock, and to act with regard to property in the capacity of Tenants," and have the appointment of servants, the arrangement of traffic charges, &c., in their own hands. The advantages of the scheme are thus set forth By placing the estate of the Company under the care of a Board of Truces, whose duty would be simply con- servative, an effective separation of capital from revenue would be secured, and a stop be put to that ceaseless ex- penditure on capital account, of which shareholders so justly complain and by confiding the working of the railway to a Board of Directors, who being relieved from the responsibilities attaching to the estate, would be then enabled to devote their undivided efforts to developing the facilities of the railway, and to an economical working of the traffic, a better result might be expected. The capital aud revenue being thus managed by dis- tinct bodies, there would then be no possibility of that confusion in the acconnts which renders them unintelli- gible to any but the highly initiated and by the sepa- ration of interests thus established, there would no longer exist the temptation to save revenue at the expense of capital, or to project, new schemes with the view of cover- ing up the deficiencies of management. The dividend derived from such a system ef working would unquestionably be honestly earned, and would present a true standard of the value of the property. The responsibilities of each of the governing bodies would be thus distinctly ma ked, admitting of no mystery or evasion, and the questions or the consideration of the shareholders would be propor ionately simplified. This plan, in its present form, is put forth with the view of affording to lailway shareholders an opportunity of considering its merits, and as a means to those who choose to make an effort of saving their property from ruin." In defending his views, Mr. Wrigley shows that while railway enterprise and improvements have been constant and progressive, railway management has not advanced in the slightest degree. He observes As railways have extended, their governments have been established on the old plan-we have had a succession of castings from the old pattern -copies from a bad original. Jealous to a degree of anything like an intrusion of new ideas from without, railway management has been remaikable for nothing so much for its dogged inertia. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be,' has been the motto of the manager's office and thus we find the system of to-day almost identical with that wbi h obta.ne i a quarter of a centuty ago. Instead of applying the nihs and principles which have been found successful in private enterprise, railway managers haye persisted in treating a railway as a >peciulile, an ex- ception to all such rule instead of relying upon an ener- getic development of the facilities within their reach, accompanied by a rigid economy in the management, as the power wherewith to defend themselvesagainst unexceptional competition, they have chosen to rely upon diplomacy, protection, treaties of amity they have been leasing and buying and making new lines to guard some vulnerable point, and on tho laith of the permanency and success of this policy of protection, they have adopted a scale of expenditure altogether out of harmony with the principles which govern successful enterprise. They have been aim- ing at territorial acquisition, and aping territorial government, ami hence we have routine and red tare, and the natural result of such a course of proceeding failure. "The charge which I have brought against railway directors and managers is Lot against their honour, their integrity, or their good intentions; but it is simply that they are attempting, or rather pretending to do, that which is physic.dy impossible. There are certain condi- tions necessary to a successful result, whether applied to a railway or to any otLer branch of industry." Among other things, Mr. Wrigley insists strongly on paid servants by the company transacting the business If there be one thiug more than another in connection with railway management, upon which I have arrived at a settled conclusion in my own mind, it is this :—that a railway, to be successfully managed, must be manned from top to bottom by paid servants of the company. Call them by whatever name you like, I say that all the ar- rangements necessary to the effective conduct of the traffic -both with regard to the running of trains and the staff of subordinates io be employed, and the mode of conduct- ing the traffic generally-should be under the government of paid officers, who will devote their who.e time, study, and attention to the duties of management so that, irrespective of what the directors may do or leave undone, the business of the company may be always efficiently performed. With regard to rates and fares, I look upon the accidental majority of an unpaid committee, to be the worst of all possible contrivances to airive at the exact point which will tlevelope the largest traffic, and make the best return to the company. That all these matters, upon which the real success of the undertaking depends, can only be determined by a continued study of the ne- cessities and requirements of particular districts; that they are not susceptible of being brought under any general rule or abstract theory, and that they can only be properly and wisely determined, by those who have a complete knowledge of all the circumstances affecting each parti- cular case and, therefore, wherever the anthority be vested to determine these vital questions, whether he be called director, manager, or by any other name, nothing less than an entire devotion of all his energies to the con- sideration of these questions can suffice and, having thus studied the case, be ought to have an opportunity of testing the correctness of his conclusions, and be judged as to his fitness for the duties by the results." Such is an outline of Mr. Wrigley's views, and we recommend his pamphlet to the notice of such of our readers as are interested in railway management.
TAKING HIM AT HIS WOKD. — The late Charles Matthews was always sprucely dressed and fond ofcarry- ing a handsome umbrella. Munden, an equally cele- brated comedian, was miserly in his habits. He was generally meanly dressed, and carried an old ectton parachute. After Munden had left the stage, Matthews met him one day in Covent Garden. "Ah, Munden," said Matthews, "I beg you'll let me have something of yours as a remembrancer." "Certainly, my boy," replied Joe Munden, "we'll exchange umbrellas.' JJatthews was so taken by storm, that Munden walked off with a new umbrella Boswell complained to Johnson that the noise of the company the day before bad made his head ache.—"No, Sir, it was not the noise th it made your head ache, it was the sense we put into it. Has sense that effect upon the head?"—" Yes, Sir, on heads not used to it."
jFnragit nnit Cnlmtinl Ileitis. —♦ PRAXCE.—Considerable uneasiness has been created by an incident which occurred at the levee of the Emperor of the French on New Year's Day. His Majesty told the Austrian Minister, M. Ilulmer, that he regretted their relations (rapports) were so bad, but that his personal sentiments for the Emperor of Austria were the same as ever. The Times' corres- pondent says The few words addressed by the Emperor to M. Hubner, were spoken with a much more emphatic tone of voice and animated gesture than the Emperor generally employs. They are com- mented upon in various ways in all circles where poli- tics are the topic, and I learn that in the higher financial regions where they are known they have produced an effect which it is difficult to exaggerate. I will not indulge in speculation as to what they portend. 1 think it right to add a few words of explanation on so unusual an occurrence. For the last two or three months negociations have been going on between Austria and France on the subject of Italy. The Emperor expresses himself very anxious that reforms should be introduced there, and particularly in the Roman States. The Austrian Government has been urged to use its influence with the Pope and the King n cl of Naples for that purpose, and the Emperor Xapo- leon has, I am assured, agreed to the withdrawal of the French troops from Rome on condition that the Austrians should also evacuate the places they hold. Oil both these points the greatest opposition is met from Austria, though it is a fact beyond dispute that the Italians are more discontented than ever with their rulers; more inflamed than ever with hatred against Austria, which no merits of her representa- tive or her generals will ever mitigate; and as ready as ever to rise up against those they look upon as their tyrants. Whatever be the real motives of the Emperor Napoleon—whether he finds that the conti- nued occupation of Rome exposes him to odium on the part of the Italians, or from whatever other views -lie is fully aware of this exasperated feeling, and of the consequences which may follow, and which, perhaps, he wauld wish to prevent. In the midst of all this comes the Servian complication, and the pro- bability of an Austrian occupation there also. Tnis, it appears, the Emperor Napoleon decidedly sets his face against, lie will listen to no occupation, ex- cept a joint one, of Servia, and under the authority of the Powers who signed the treaty of Paris. We have every day new accounts of the effervescence that prevails in Italy, and the sympathy which Sar- dinia shows to the discontented, as well as what is passing in Servia. All this has produced its effect on the Emperor's mind; and thus, notwithstanding his habitual reserve, he could not but show it yesterday when the representative of Austria stood before him. This, I think, you will find pretty nearly the true state of the case. The feeling against Austria is very bitter, and I cannot say that'it is entirely undeserved. Whether it will go to the length which all seem to apprehend I cannot say.The same writer adds on a later day-.—"ihe words addressed by the Emperor to the Austrian Ambassador at the levee are still the theme of eonversation in diplomatic, and commercial circles. There is not a Representative in Paris who has not, I am sure, written long despatches to his Court on the subject." .1 AUSTRIA.—It has been reported in this city that a most formidable conspiracy has been discovered at Cracow. The first account given of the affair was, that 40 persons, some of whom were said to be nobles and military men of rank, had been arrested. The original story was soon greatly embellished, and the Vienna public is now under the impression that the fortress of Cracow was to have been surrendered by its garrisons to the Russians. It is asserted that some of the persons arrested are Russian agents, and it is not unlikely that such is the case. It was from the Prussian province of Posen that the Imperial authorities got the first hint that mischief was plot- ting at Cracow. As a measure of precaution the troops were kept in their barracks at Cracow for two or three days. The Vienna speculators d la baisse, who have made the most of the Cracow conspiracy, created a panic one evening by stating that the gar- rison of the fortress of Belgrade had taken possession of the city. NICE.—A letter from Nice, dated the 2Sth of December, informs us of a deploiable event that occurred intht-.t town, and which arose from a dispute in the Philharmonic Society between M. de L-, a Frenchman above 60 years of age, and Count S-, of Nice, a young man of 24. The latter tore the riband of the Legion of Honour from the coat of the former. A duel ensued, in which Count S- was struck in the breast by a ball from the pistol of his adversary. He was carried off the ground in a state which leaves little hope of his recovery. INDIA.—The following telegram from Acting Consul-General Green, was received at the Foreign- office at 11 p.m., January 1st, dated Alexandria, December 25th, lSoS:—"The steamer Bombay arrived at Suez from Bombay on the 21st, with dates to the 9th the steamer Emeu also arrived at Suez on the 21st from Australia. The amnesty is slowly but surely thinning the ranks of the rebds, and there is good reason for believing that the whole country will be restored to peace without much additional blood- shed. On the 4th of November (21th ?) a force, commanded by Lord Clyde in person, having marched 61 miles in 60 hours, completely defeated Bainie Madhoo Sing, and a large army of rebels at Dundeca Klara, nearly opposite Futtehpore. Tile enemy was driven out of the dense jungle, and afterwards chased four miles by guns and cavalry their loss was enor mous; many were drowned in the Ganges. Bainie Madhoo fled down the river Oomrao. Sing escaped towards the Cawnporc road. The rabble threw away their arms and fied to the steep ravines in which the Younksy abounds. Bainie Madhoo is said now to be at Doleemou Ghaat, on the Ganges. Oil the 2Sth of November the Commander-in-Chief arrived at Luck- now. The health of our troops is said to be excel- lent. On the 21st of November General Grant re- crossed the Gourtee (Gooaitee ?) the rebels in con- siderable numbers disputed the passage, but were forced to fly with great loss. Six of their guns were taken. Tautia Topee continues to avoid the inge- nuity of his pursuers. He is said to have entered Guzurat. The Bombay Gazette announces the death of General John Jacob, on the 6th of December, from an attack of brain fever." BOMBAY.—By the arrival of the Bombay mail pri- vate correspondence and papers from Bombay to the 9th of December have reached us. One correspon- dent says The unfavourable news which I have to report will doubtless have been made known to you by telegraph. I learn by a telegram from Agra of the 6th ieist., that on the 5th Nana Sahib, with a considerable force, had crossed the Gauges between I Futteghur and Cawnpore, having successfully eluded the corps of Barker aud Colin Troup, posted 011 the Goomtee at Benigunge and Aligunge. Brigadier Showers moved out on the 7th of November to oppose him. But, if the Nanaonly marches as fast as Tantia Topee, Brigadier Showers will have little chance of coming up with him. I accordingly expect the Nana will make good his passage across the Doab and the Jumna, and penetrate into Central India. There can be little doubt that this move of his is like the last desperate throw of the gamester, lie will endeavour to enter the Deccan; but energetic measures have already been taken on this side to prevent the success of such an attempt. Tantia Topee's movements are still the absorbing topic of conversation in Bombay. Such is the terror which the name of tins chief inspires, that the rumour of his approach, whether it be well founded or not, suffices to drive timid people into the towns, stop the daily traffic on the high road, and le: d to the suspension of business tiansac road, and led to the suspension of business tiansac tions. His appearance on the borders of the Deccan and Kandeish was sufficient to interrupt the cotton and seed trade between those districts and Bombay. His last inroad into Guzerat has thrown Baroda, Broach, and Surat into the greatest anxiety. The merchants of the ports have suspended operations no bills are drawn, no money is shipped, and the Bombay market languishes for want of produce. In n this view the inability of our troops to grasp Tantia Topee is one of the greatest evils that could befall yS, for it is cheaper to allow him the plunder of a hundred villages than to stop for a day the produce traffic of the Presidency."
A. fracas which occurred last week, at Clifton, between two gentlemen of the same family, was expected to have formed the subject of judicial investigation at the Coun- cil House, on Monday, as summonses for assault fixed for hearing on that day had been taken out. The parties, however, adopted the more sensible plan of settling their differences out of Court, and the public arc consequently disappointed of hearing the details of this family squabble.

AGRICULTURE IN THE YEAR 1858—If wecompnre the system of cultivation pursued in raising the various crops now required with that used twenty years ago, we are at once convinced of the improvement which has taken place in agriculture and perhaps in no depart- ment have the profitable effects of the better method been shown than in the increased proportion of green food whicu can now be oMained during the winter months. The extent to which roots, as suited to supply green food containing feeding properties, can be grown has not as yet become fully known. But of this we are sure-tljal, as the breadth of land sown with turnips is enlarged, so will be the pecuniary profits from the same source. It is one of the features of agriculture, which has been developed in bygone years, that it is not only a crop profitable for feeling, but as being remarkably suited to the preparation of the soil for corn of any de- scription. The turnip crop last year was at one time threatened with entire destruction from two cati,es- excessive drought and insect depredators of unusual numbers. If we consider that there were many farmers who had to sow large fields a second time, and partially succeeded, there is a lesson to be learnell by those who will sow too eariy, and independent of the state of the weather when the seed is put into the ground. The crop this year of turnips is very much below an average; but we believe that the quality is, on a comparison with that of last year, very much superior. The potato was extensively ptaute 1 iast year, and up to the middle of Augusf promised abundance, when it was seized with the blight, which has considerably reduced the quantity. Mangold wurzel is a root deserving the special attention of the farmer: it has been cultivated with great success in the year which ha3 just left us it is a root which may yet be gro-.vn with ,.n acclimated constitution. The cer. al crops will exceed an average. Wheat is of a fine sample, and the produce not much above an average. In Scotland the wheat crop is quite ail average, and first-rate quality. Barley, in some instances, will be an average, but not much above a medium weight. Oats are unequal in yield this year. The pea crop in England has been a general failure. Beans far below an average. The reports we have from America announce a deficiency in the wheat crop: the spring of 1358 was untavouiable to the growth of wheat. Excessive rains, followed by excessive heat, brought on rust and mildew, which affected the oat crop in a similar way. The ravages of the weevil and iiessi-tn flv have been severely felt in the British American colonies, so much so that in some districts the wheat was not reaped—the grain was consumed by these insect destroyers. The crop of 18')7 being above an average, and not all used or ex- ported, will come in to make up the deficiency of 18;)8. In France the season was nnu-ually dry. Tiie report of the wheat crop is good. There will be a scarcity of fodder in France on account of the dry season. We may expect a fair portion of wheat from the ports in the Black Sea. Frmi the abundant crop which we had last year over the United Kingdom, and from the caution the farmer has exercised in offering his grain for sale as yet, we may conclude that we nftist have almost enough at home without bringing it from other countries. While, however, we have to take a low price for who tt in com- parison with that realized two or three years ago, there does not appear to be such a falling oft' in the price of fat stock beef and mutton of the first quality have brought the top prices. It has not yet been explained, however, why beef and pork of tho second quality, bought by the butcher at 5s. Gd. to 6s. a stone, should fetch from the consumer 7d. a pound The crop of lambs was an average one, and the price of wool, to those who kept their stock, remunerative. GARDEN OPERATIONS. FLOWER GARDEN AND SHRUBBSRIES.- Where any of the beds or borders require a dressing of fresh soil this should be provided, in order to have it in readiness to wheel on when favourable went her for such work may occur. Fresh foil is in most cases preferable as a dressing for flower beds to manure, which is apt to cause too luxuriant a growth for a first-rate disp ay of flowers. On soils that are naturally poor, however, and where neither fresh mould nor decayed leaves can be had, a moderate dressing of well rotted farm-yard manure will be useful, but this should be well-mixed with the mould the full depth of the bed, and not care- lessly turned in and left in lumps near the surface, for in this case a gross habit of growth would be promoted early in the season, and as the principal part of the roots would be near the surface in the manure, the plants would soon feel the effects of dry weather, whereas if the manure is well incorporated with the soil to the depth of about eighteen inches, no ordinary amount of dry weather will injure the plants after they once get fairly established. Shrubberies may be thinned when this involves only the cutting out of overgrown plants or lopping deciduous trees or the hardier kinds of evergreens, but where evergreens generally require pruning, the work had better be deferred until March, except in favourable localities, for although when the winter proves mild such work may be successfully per- formed at any time, it is never safe to depend upon this. Avoid treading upon or working the ground when it is in a sodden state and if the workmen cannot be profit- bbly employed out-doors, get a good stock of dahlia -takes, brooms, and things of that kind prepared for use when wanted. IIAIIDY FKUIT AND KITCHEN GARDEN.—If any transplanting of fruit trees has yet to be done this season, it should be seen to while the weather is favour- able for such work also see to getting ground intended to be planted with young trees prepared, and spare no pains or expense to have this properly done. Make sure of tiiorough drainage, and where the subsoil is unkind this should be removed, replacing it with- some good fresh loam. When a large breadth has to be planted in one season this expensive kind of preparation cannot be always afforded, but it is better to do such work only in such quantities as will allow of every precaution being used with the view of securing success. Attend to keeping up a supply of rhubarb, beakale, and asparagus by introducing quantities of the roots into heat at in- tervals of about a fortnight. Where there is room in the mushroom house the two former will be found to do exceedingly well there, and a supply will be obtained with little trouble, f or iand that has long been cropped with vegetables a good dressing of fresh loam would in many cases be preferable to manure, and where this is wanted and can be obtained, it should be got to hand in order that advantage may be taken of frosty days for wheeling it upon the ground. Whefe fresh soil cannot be obtained, charred vegetable refuse, such as prunings of shrubberies, edgings of walks and many things which turn up in course of the se tSOU may be cheaply made to form au excellent substitute.—Gardeners' Chronicle.
NEWS OF DIT. LIVINGSTONE.—Intelligence has been received from Dr, Livingstone up to the 4th of October. Writing,on, that date from the Kongone River" to the Rev. W. Thompson, he says-" I could not possibly write to you by Inst opportunity from the Zambezi but there was so little to communicate you were no loser. We have now had more time to look abiut us, and I think we have ascertained the point that entering this river at tIe ti'.ne we did is nearly quite safe, if no delay takes place among the mangrove swamps. We have been favoured with fair health and h ive had ailments more like common cold than fV:ver. Two of the party are now at Tete, and the others hope to join them shortly. Wre got a ton and a half of coals there, the first ever taken out of the earth in that country and as the l'ortugf-se have shown a great deal of public spirit, we are almost sure of a large supply when we return. My poor fellows received me with joy. They had been taunted by the Tete people that their Englishman would never return but they hoped on, and have amassed quantities of beads to take back to their own country. hirly of them died of small-pox, and six were killed by a rebel chief at the confluence of the Suenya. Tile confidential servant of Lekwebu is with me now on board the launch, which is so small we could not bring more of them down, though they were anxious to come in service. We found the country in a state of war, and the Portugese were too busy with that to help us with canoes. It is finished now, and my old friend, Major Lecaid, at once assisted us with luggage bnt it has I quite depopulated the land adjacent to the river. We see the river in this month at its very lowest and, as it spreads out into from one to three miles in width, the broad parts are very difficult. When we got up to Lupata, our difficulties vanish, for above that point it is in one or t .vo channels of about 1,000 or 1,200 yards .broad. I admire its size more than ever. When 1 came down in a canoe it was full, and I saw but one chaunel where now are two or three. If the Portuguese would be at the expense of a few piles driven in to effect what snags'sometimes do now, deep channels might be se- cured for the whole year. They are going to build a fort and custom-house at this or the Luailo." THE ENGLISH AND AMERICAN NAVIES.—The annual report of the Secretary to the American Navy says :— it was the intention of the department to have again, during the present year, assigned to the steam frigate Susquehanna, under Captain Sands, the duty of assist- ing in laying the Atlantic telegraph cable but in the month of March last, while she was lying in the harbour of San Juan del Norte, the yellow fever made its appear- ance '»n board, and prevented her from again participating in that enterprise. Having been detained at quarantine in New York during the summer, she has but recently been reimved to Brooklyn. On her way home she was obliged to put into Jamaica. When she arrived at Kingston Sir H. Stewart, the admiral of the port, placed the hospital at the disposal of the sick, and furnished every assistance for landing them 85 of them were transferred to the hospital. The surgeon of the ship being disabled by the fever, Assistant Surgeon Rose, of the British navy, volunteered to attend the sick in his place, and to accompany her to New York. The depart- ment communicated to him its high appreciation of this noble and generous act of disinterested philanthropy. On those who were left at Port Royal every attention was bestowed, and every provision made for their comfort, by the authoiities. To Admiral Stewart, Commodore Kellet, Captain Hay, Dr. Kinner, of the hospital, and the medical officers under him, the department expresses, through the British Minister at Washington, its warmest acknowledgments for their prompt and efficient assist- ance. For the expenses incurred in the treatment of the sufferers at Port Royal, the Lords Commissioners of Admiralty have declined to make any claim upon this ) Go Vermont."
TORTURE AND EXECUTION OF A FRENCH t BISHOP AT TONQUIN. (From the Hongkong Register.) Monseignor Melchior was taken on the 8th of July, and immediateiy led to the capital. As the calumny had been industriously circulated that he was the chief of the insurgents, his Eminence was closely confined. Two of his servants had been taken prisoners with him. On the morning of the 27th the- venerable prisoner told those who brought him his meals that lie required no change of clothing, and only asked for his trousers, the chief mandarin having probably announced to him the kind of death he should die. On the 23th of the same month, at 7 o'clock in the morning, the troops, elephants, horses, &c., left the city for the place of execution by the north gate. They led with them the two young servants of the venerable martyr; both of them wore heavy chains on their necks, and went on foot to receive joyfully the martyr's palm. On arriving at the place a great circle was formed, and the executioner tied the t WQ young men to two posts placed near each other. They were kept for about an hour in this position of torture. After this scene occurred one 3till more cruel and terrible. After the attendants had led the two young men to the place of punishment they brought forth the venerable Bishop by the east gate. The whole of the circumstances under which they conducted the venerable victim to his death were truly terrible. His Eminence was led through all the streets of the city with a heavy chain round his neck; in his hand he carried his breviary. Twenty guards, sword in hand, surrounded him. Tiie escort of the three pri>oueru con- sisted of about 500 soldiers, two elephants, four horse- men, two men bearing instruments called chintz," a drummer, and four trumpeters. When the Bishop reached the scene of his glorious martyrdom he was covered with sweat and mud. On seeing his two ser- vants who were awaiting the blow which should let their spirits soar to Heaven, his Eminence exhorted them to courage, and gave them his blessing. A few moments later the mandarin who was seated on one of the ele- phants raised his voice and ordered the heads of the two servants to be first cut oil, and afterwards that of the liOIl (the term applied to the Catholic priusts). At a given signal the head of one of the servants, named Tiep was struck off; but three blows were requisite to effect this. Tiie executioner then took the head aud flung it in o the air, that it might be seen by everybody. The executioner then struck off the head of the second, named Hieu, but on this occasion struck a more fortunate hand, for tie only needed a single blow. Happy souls, which had ascended to Heaven to receive the reward of their courage, and to prepare, so to speak, the seat of glory for their master which was destined for him by our Lord in so few moments! These faith- ful attendants had served the Bishop in this life, and in their deaths they shared his glory and his triumphs. Let us now pass on to the horrible torture suffered by the venerable Bishop. The two servants having been executed, the executioner stretched a mat on the ground placed a small carpet upon it, broke the chain which was round the neck of his Eminence, and made him lie down on his back upon the matting. The Bishop wore at this time nothing but a pair of trouser turned up to the thighs. The victim being thus placed, the executioner took two stakes, which he fixed in the ground on each side of him, and to which his hands wore tightly bound by cords, causing great pain. Two others were then placed under his armpits, and crossed over the chest of the Bishop so as to press it tightly. Two other posts were then set up at a short distance from his foot. The cords with which the feet were bound were passed rounds these posts and stretched violently, the feet being pegged down the loins were similarly secured. It would be difficult to conceive the tortures of the vener- able prelate thus bound and racked. An order was then issued, first to cut off his feet, then the hands, af- terwards the head of the martyr, and then to eviscerate him. At this order five executioners commenced their frightful duty. They wero armed with a kind of bill- hooK. or hatchet, purposely blunted in order to inflict great suffering. They commenced by cutting off the legs above the knees, each limb receiving about twelve blows before it was severed. The same process was re- peated with the arms. But the power of speech now failed the unhapppy martyr, who, so long as strength remained, had not ceased to call on the name of Jesus. His head was then struck off, after repeated blows, and lastly his body was opened and his entrails drawn out with a hook. Soch is the exact account of the death and torture of Monseignor Melchior, near the very spot which had been consecrated two years earlier by the martyrdom of his predecessor. Immediately after the execution the dif- ferent parts of the body weie wrapped up in the mat and thrown into the pit dug for the purpose. The Ton- quiuese wished to make the elepi)ants pass over the spot, < so as to trample under foot the grave of the venerable confessor of our faith, but these uuitnais, less savage, t- and we may almost say more humane, than their masters, obstinately refused to do so, as if they would not pro- g fane tiie relics of the noble martyr. Bishop Melchior's head was exposed for some days on I the southern gate of Nan-diuh, and then broken to pieces and thrown into the sea.
MELANCHOLY DEATH OF A YOUXG SULIOEON.—A melancholy accident occurred at the Norwich Dispensary t on Saturday evening, resulting in the death of Mr. Alfred Dowson, a gentleman 22 years of age, who had ( been officiating during the last few days for his brother, c Mr. Arthur Dowson, surgeon at that institution. It i seems that the deceased took what he fancied was some t tincture of orange-peel, but which really proved to be L tincture of aconite. The unfortunate young man mis- read the labels on the bottles, one being marked" Tinct. j Aurant. and the other "Tinct. Aconite." After ( making the fatal mistake he ate some supper, conversed i cheerfully, and retired to rest; but he had not been long c in bed when he found himself in such pain that he dis 1 turbed the establishment. Professional assistance was promptly at hand, but was rendered in rain, death soon E terminating the sufferings of the deceased. At an inquest held by Mr. W. Wilce, city coroner, the jury, after hear- -1 ing several witnesses, returned the following verdict:— € That the deceased took some tincture of aconite acci- 8 dentally and by mistake, intending to take some tincture of orange. peel." < LOUD CLYDE'S FATHER.—A Glasgow paper has the t following communication from a correspondent :—" I a observe in your paper of the 29th of December, the death of Lord Clyde's father. He was an apprentice to an J eminent cabinetmaker, in Argyle-street, Glasgow, to- wards the end of the last century. Thi1 gentleman to whom he was bound as all apprentice having died in J 1809, John M'Liver became a journeyman cabinetmuker t to his master's brother and successor, whose extensive ) warehouses in Argyle-street were destroyed by fire. A gentleman informed me he remembered Colin M'Liver perfectly well as being a black-headed boy and very lively. He used to run about the workshops of the f above-mentioned cabinetmakers. John M'Liver was a steady well-behaved workman, and in point of intelligence 1 was rather superior to the general run of workmen. There is a gentleman in the city who u as getting instruc- tions in cabinetmaking, and is still alive, who told me that he worked at the same bench as John M'Liver. This gentleman lately wrote to the Isle of Mull to make 1 inquiry regarding his old shopmate, and received a letter from John himself, expressing many thanks for his kindness in inquiring alter him. The same gentleman ( was in Gibson's class in the Glasgow Grammar School < with Lord Clyde, then standiug simply 'Co!in M'Liver,' upon the roll of the class. His schoolfellows, as is well known, invited Lord Clyde to a class dinner when he was in Glasgow, and his Lordship attended, and spent a happy evening with them. It is ratner singular, but it t has never been explained how Lord Clyde did not visit his father in Mull, when he was so near his aged parent's place of residence. It is said that Lord Clyde had been in the practice for many years of allowing his father an annuity of £30, which the old man said was quite suffi- cient to keep him comfortable, and more than he had been accustomed to spend. Lord Clyde entered the army by the advice of his mother's relations, who assisted him at that time. Mrs. M'Liver's maiden name was 'Camp- bdi,' and Lord Clyde assumed that name as being a more dignified military name than I M'Liver.' 0 LoKD XAPIER,- We read in a letter from new York, (apropos of the rumours that Lord Napier had been recalled for sympathy with the South) "That he has cultivated Southern society much more extensively than Northern there is no question, but whetner or not he has been guilty of anindiseretiou in d ting so, dependsentirely on the purpose for which he was sent here. If he was to represent the opinions of the English people on great moral and social questions, he has undoubtedly erted but if it was to influence the American Government as far as possible in a manner favourable to English interests and English policy, he has been undoubtedly right. The Government and the social influences by which its machinery is most effectively worked, are in Southern hands, and are likely to romain so for some little time. To repudiate Southern society would be, in the case of a foreign Minister, to paralyze his action in public affairs almost altogether. As to his successor, if nothing has yet been decided about him, I hope he will be another lord. A lord goes a great way here—other things being equal, I think almost further than in England—and he costs no more than a commoner. So, why not let us hare one, when you have^ them in such numbers, and there are so few uses to which you can put them ? Lord Napier has been the most popular man you hava sent us for a long time. He gave pie (sant parties at Washington, made neat speeches all over the country, and to every- body's astonishment made them fluently. There is, Y" must know, a general notion prevalent here tbftt Englishman can deliver a speech fluently and dw.. facility, without hemming or hawing,' and his .8.'p is consequently looked upon as a mirade ol eloquence, because he speaks glibly and without Hesita- tion. This may serve as another hint to you in your choice of his successor. Pleasantry apart, in a country governed so much as this is by popular sentiments, the usefulness of a foreign representative depends a great deal on his possession of the outward qualities that oom- mand popularity. We do not need an astute diplomatist | nor a very polished courtier. reste, Lord Napier I carries away with him everybody's esteem and good » wisues.Globe.

Both wore recotnnjended to J1"V"" IIen!7 Re id because he was drunk, an.1 luielin, because the jury thou-ht murder, under certain circumstances, was only manslaughter. On Sa- turday the drunken husband was hanged, on tho north lont.of Ivirkdiile Gaol, although the jury had recom- mended hm, to mercy Wilhelm, howevei* is spared. the public wi.l like to know the reason why. This man was not drunk ha was in the pessession of his full facul- we,V ';e/'as a of some education he knew what he about, and he knew more—he knew the conse- quences of the crime he was about to commit. We are told that on the 16th of July, 18,33, he was tried at York, before Air.

It must be appar.-ut to every oae that this lecommendation of the jury could only have been founded c'n the b2ilt't that the Inan was performing an operation the consequences of which he was ignorant of. Would the jury havecome to this conclusion h.d they known that the man had already been tried for the same offence? How olten may not this man have committed this same crime between 1853 and 1858 ? It is to be hoped, for the sake of the safety of society, that the Home Secretary, who, of course, knew all his trade public m theioc&I press of Saturday, will explain to the wor'd the reasons why her Majesty's pardon has been extended to this abandoned miscreant. The value of punishment consists n the eertamty °f its infliction. Any departure from rule induces persons of sanguine temperament to the commission of cri-i.e. Can th.re be a more dangerous doctrine than that the punishment of a criminal is to de- pend on the nurnour of the Secretary for the Home De- partment ? Aul what must we think of the man who regards the ofienee of ilhelm as one d, serving of com- miseration ? A crime more subversive of good morals cannot well be suggested.

DISTRESSING 1 EUMIXATION TO A CHRISTMAS PARTY.— _tr. and Mis. Robson had brought their family down to Tyncmouth on Christmas day, to visit Mrs, Gibson, the children's grandmother. In the evening it was intended to give a juvenile party, and have an exhibition of the magic lantern. The two youngest children of the Rob- son family were twins, about nine months old. One of them that was being nursed duiingthe afternoon by a domestic had fallen asleep, and a turn-up bed was put down in the parlour, in which she placed it. The other baby was nursed at the same time bv its father. The child that had been laid in the bed by the nurSe awoke a short time a ter, and she took it out again, and, the baby that was being nursed by its father having fallen asleep, he placed it in the bed, Mrs. Gibson having seen one child taken out of the bed, and supposing the father had taken the other twin out with him, put the « bed up. Some short time after Mrs. Robson asked about the children, and Mrs. Gibson replied that Mr. Kobson had one, and the girl was nursing the other but Mr. Robson coming in shortly after without it, and stating that he laid it down in the bed before he wc-nt out, it flashed across the mind of the grandmother that she must have accidentally put it up with the bed and upon takingthe bed down, the child was found, but dead. Ihe poor grandmother is nearly distracted about tins untoward occurrence. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of "Accidental dc,tth," Much sympathy is expressed for the poor old woman.
