Bristol & Liverpool Junction Railway, WITH A FIXED BRIDGE OVER THE SEVERN AT THE OLD PASSAGE. THE Committee think it right to Notice an Advertisement _L which appeared in the Morning Herald of the 12th instant, announcing an Extension to Monmouth of the Line formerly proposed by the Bristol and South Wales Junction Railway Company. It is well known that the now proposed extension formed no part of the scheme originally promulgated by that Company, and it is only now put forward when the more comprehensive project of the Bristol and Liverpool Junction Company has been cordially received by the public. The promoters of the latter undertaking deem it incumbent on them publicly to state their opinion, that the recent decision of the Lords of the Admiralty against crossing the estuary of the Severn at the Hock Crib, has no applicability whatever to the proposed crossing at the Old Passage by means of a Bridge, which shall offer no obstruction to the free course of the Navi- gation, and this is the peculiar characteristic of their Bridge. The Committee, in fact, consider that the recent decision of the Admiralty will materially forward the construction of the pro- posed Bridge at the Old Passage. The Committee at present refrain from comment on the other statements put forth in the Advertisement in question, knowing that ample opportunity will hereafter be afforded for establish- ing the superior claims to public and national support possessed by their scheme, when compared with that of their rival.

Thomas Dyke, Esq. A PRINCIPAL feature in this undertaking is the erection at the Old, or Aust Passage, of a fixed, bridge across the estuary of the Severn, adapted as well for railway traffic as for ordinary carriage and pedestrian intercourse. By the construc- tion of this bridge, and the intended line of railway in connexion with it, two great objects will be attained: first, there will be established, by means of a junction at Hereford with the pro- posed lines north of that city, a direct, unbroken line of railway communication between Bristol and Liverpool, with a saving in distance of about forty-two miles over the present route; and, secondly, there will be opened a free communication between the southern and western portions of England, on the one hand, and Monmouthshire and South Wales on the other. These important districts have hitherto been practically severed, and only rendered accessible to each other by a most inconvenient ferry, dependent on tides and weather. The want of a fixed bridge over the Severn, at the point above mentioned, has long been severely felt, and it would be impossible, whether in reference to national or local interests, to over estimate the advantages of a scheme designed to supply this want. It has not, however, been from a consideration of its impracticability that such a work has not long since been accomplished. In the year 1825, Mr. Telford, the late celebrated engineer, was eon- suited upon the subject, and gave a most decided opinion in favour of it, particularly adverting (amongst other causes afford- ing facility) to the great height of the banks at the Old Passage, to the fact of the bed of the river consisting wholly of solid rock, and to the circumstance that suitable materials for the work could be procured within a reasonable distance. The engineers of the present proposed work, as well as other engineers of eminence, are equally confident of tlie thorough practicability of the undertaking. Until recent times, and before the period had arrived when railway traffic and profits had reached their present astonishing extent, the expense of this bridge, compared with the probable traffic-returns, naturally retarded its projection; but now, when works equally difficult and expensive, such as tunnels and via- ducts are readily constructed by railway companies for the mere traffic of their line, and sometimes only to avoid a comparatively trifling deviation, it will be at once admitted, that with a view merely to the formation of a direct line between Bristol and Liverpool, (without looking to collateral or ultra terminal ad- vantages) the magnitude of the undertaking is no longer to be regarded as an impediment to its completion. The recent decision of the Admiralty against the proposed bridge at the Hock Crio, several miles higher up the Estuary, and subsequent report of the Committee of the House of Commons, leave the Aust passage the only practicable point for a fixed bridge. Arrangements have been concluded with His Grace the Duke of Beaufort, and the other Proprietors of the Aust Ferry, whereby the purchase of that important interest has been se- cured to this Company. The line will commence at Bristol, and proceed to the Aust Passage: there, crossing the proposed bridge to Beachley, it will run northward along the valleys of the Wye and Monnow, by Chepstow and Monmouth to Hereford, which city will form the other terminus of the line. At Hereford the direct chain of communication to Liverpool will be completed by the lines now projected between those places. It is obvious that this route will furnish to the west and south-west of England the best and most direct means of communication not only with Liverpool and the north of England, but with Dublin and the north of Ireland.. To Bristol itself the value of the project cannot be over-esti- mated. It will secure to that ancient city the continuance of its long-enjoyed position as the emporium of commerce in the West. It is proposed to connect the line with the forest of Dean, by which means the vast mineral resources of that district will be developed to an extent hitherto unattained. Many other advantages will at once suggest themselves to those acquainted with the locality of the proposed railway; amongst others it mav be mentioned, that the route will em- brace Tintern Abbev and the other celebrated scenery of the Wye, which, notwithstanding the difhcuity and expense of reaching them by the present means of transit, annually attract a great number of visitors. The engineering capabilities of the line have been ascertained to be excellent. Investigations on the subject of the traffic have been made, which fully justify the conclusion that the undertaking will prove a profitable invest- ment of capital, as well as a great national and local conve- nience. „ Application to be made for shares to the Provisional Com- mittee, at the Company's Offices, 23, Moorgate-street, London, or to the undermentioned Brokers:—Messrs.

That under the provisions of the recent Dean Forest Mining Act, and the subsequent Award of the Commissioners, nearly all the Coal and Iron Mines of the Forest have been set out and awarded to different Proprietors, upon conditions that will compel the opening and working of the said mines but these regulations cannot possibly be carried into effect. without ruinous lor-s to the owners of the said mines, unless better and cheaper railway accommodation be provided. |§That your Memorialists have heard with satisfaction of^an arrangement agreed upon between the South Wales Railway Company, and the Proprietors of the old Tram-road on the eastern side of the Forest, (the Forest ot Dean or Bulo Pill Tram-road,) which will secure an improved communication with the Severn, at Brimspiil; and your Memorialists also re- gard with satisfaction the contemplated Lines of Railway from Monmouth to Hereford and Gloucester, which will skirt the Forest on the eastern side; but these lines of railway, though satisfactory as far as they go, are wholly inadequate to the ac- commodation of the entire Forest. That your Memorialists, therefore, entreat your Honourable Board to promote, by all such measures as you may deem suitable, the improvement of the Railway Communication with the western side of the Forest, and with the Coal Works in the centre of the Forest Coal Field, which your Memorialists submit may be best accomplished by an arrangement between the South Wales Railway Company and the Proprietors of the Severn and Wye Tram-road, similar to that which has been already effected on the eastern side of the Forest. That your Memorialists think it fair and reasonable, that the option of making a good and cheap Line of Railway for the central and western Collieries and Mines, should be given to the Severn and Wye Company, or to any new Company to whom they may transfer their concern, provided no delay takes place in the undertaking; but that, in the event of any refusal or un- necessary delay on their part, your Memorialists humbly pray your Honourable Board to afford your most effectual patronage and support to other parties who may bring forward an inde- pendent Line of Road, that will secure to your Memorialists, and other Proprietors of Forest Mines, a cheap communication with their natural markets. That your Memorialists are deeply impressed with the ne- cessity of moderate charges for the conveyance of the Mineral produce of the Forest on the projected Railways; and, inas- much as the interests of the Crown property will be seriously affected by the imposition of high Tonnage Rates, your Memorialists earnestly entreat that your Honourable Board will use your influence to prevent the imposition of any higher Rate of Tonnage on Coal, Iron Ore, Iron, or Stone, than is usual on other Railways and also that you will use your in- fluence to give effect to the recommendation of the Board of Trade, that the Tonnage Rates may be charged accorfling to the direct distance, and not according to the circuitous route the proposed Railways may take. And your Memorialists will ever pray, NC. NUMBER ONE.ST. PAUL'S CHURCHYARD, LON DON. TEAS. AS we are now celebrated in the metropolis for supplying Good and Pure Teas, and in order that the advantages we hold out may be equally appieciated in the country, we feel called upon to prove the following very important facts, viz.:— That the higher priced Teas are the cheapest, and that the worst trash of Teas imported into this kingdom, are not retailed in London, but find their way into the country, and so into the tea-pot of the country consumer. With respect to the impoitation of Tea, it should be univer- sally known, and always borne in mind, that the expense of bringing Tea over hom China, and the duly, (namely 28.21d. per pound) payable to our Government on its arrival here, are the same on all descriptions, whether good or bad consequently the puiiiy and goodness of Teas depend on the prices first paid for them when purchased in China from the growers. It is necessary, therefore, that all should be aware that in this country the quality of Tea increases more than the advance of prices would appear to justify, as for instance—the tea costing in China 2s. per pound, which (when the duty. namely 2;.2|d. per pound, and the expense of carriage, profit,&c.,is added) cannot be sold here under 4s. 6d. per pound, is evidently Twice as Good as that costing in China la., which, when the duty, &c., is added, cannot be sold here under 3s 6d. per pound, so that whilst the price increases onlv about one-fourth, the Tea becomes twice as good in quality. Having now made it manifest that the fine or higher priced Tt'as ere the cheapest, we will direct attention to the following facias coi,oborative of the statement that the vilest rubbish foisted ou he public as Tea" has been, 1.0 an inciadibleextent, vended in the country. Between January 1st, 1843, and June, 1844, there have been sold, at the Tea Auciioos, in Mincintr Lane, at prices varying from one penny to sixpence per pound, 3,117950 pounds of traah, dignified by the name of "Tea," which, after passing through various hands, nas at length found tbe country its prin- c'pal channel of consumption. Tel- PI ant. iti' Ue^MecYs' |r varil}0^ consequences when bad, can fail to be struck with the incalcu- lable injury to health that must have resulted from the known consumption of the above. To prevent a grievance so truly deplorable in its consequences as that now pointed out, we have resolved to supply direct from NUMBER ONE, ST. PAUL'S CHURCHYARD, our good and pure Teas, at an unparrelied smallness of profit. and this will enable those residing at a distance from London, to procure the best quality of Teas at very near the same prices they are now paying for the worst, and so afford them all the advantages which the London consumers possess, who purchase from the diiect source of supply. To cany this into effect, so as to be most advantageous and most convenient, we shall be h.ippy to put up the Tea for those families who may unite togetiier in favouring us with an order in parcels containing any quantity they may desire, and if re- qu)red,theordtrs of shopkeepers will be packed in cases contain- ing two ounces and so on to a pound upwards. COFFEES. As we are those on whom the honour devolved of carrying out the philanthropic measures of Government, in the recent Re- duction of the Duties on Cofft-e, we are determined to rraintain unequalled our character for the combination of excellence and cheapness in that article, and thus fulfil the observation of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who, in his financial statement during the last session, announcing a further REDUCTION of the DUTY to 6d. per pound, said—It is most important to extend the use of a beverage which is a great luxury to all classes, and which, in addition, is found to supersede other be- veiages detriment*! to health." We wouid now draw iittention to the prices of a few Teas and Coffees that we can confidently recommend for general consump- tion, viz.:— Our Jive full flavoured Black Tea at 4s. per lb. Our full Pekoe and Souchong flavoured lea at 4s 4d. per lb., and Our finest true rich Congou at 4s. 6d. per lb., which is an old fashioned fine Tea, such as the East India Company used to bring over. All these Teas will give great and general satisfaction. Coffees mellow ill ripeliess and richness (If flarour at Is 6d. and Is. Kd. per lb or 12 lbs• of this choice Coffee for One Sovereign. As very impoitant to the Invalid and General Consumers, we would notice our Pe7fectly Pme Arrowroot, imporfed from the Islands of litrmuda and Jamaica, without changing hands. which we sell at a price leaving merely a nominal profit— Boimuda, etglreenpence the Pound; Jamaica, tenpence the Pound. In original Tins of -2)bs.,4)bs.. Sibs., and 141bs. The high price, namdy 4<. per lb., atwhtch good Arrowroot was formedy sold has hitherto prevented its extensive usefulness. All purchasers of 30lb. of Tea will be allowi-d a pound more than what they pay for, being the trade overwe ght. All Goods will be delivered CARRIAGE FREE. As no orders can be attended to unless accompanied by a respectable reference or remittance, we would suggest that pay. ment be made in tl e following manner —when the goods do not amount to more than £ in value, by post-office order, when exceeding that sum, bv half-notes, or banker's order.

HOUSE OF LORDS. TUESDAY, JUNE 17. The Bishop of Cashel presented several petitions from cler- gymen in Ireland, complaining of the system of education as practised in the National Schools. In his opinion the National Board of Education was a signal failure,and had only tended to increase the amount of ignorance in Ireland. The plan he should recommned was that of the Church Education Society, which provided for the spiritual instruction of children under the superintendence of the parochial clergy, and he trusted this plan would find favour in the eyes of her Majesty's govern- ment. The Earl of St. Germains defended the National Board from the charges of the Right Rev. Prelate. To say that ignorance had increased during the last ten years in Ireland was a most extraordinary proposition, and one quite unwarranted by facts. He should oppose the proposition of the Bishop of Cashel, be- cause it would give great offence to the Roman Catholics. The Marquess of Normanby bore testimony to the admirable system of the National Board. The Earl of Wicklow insisted that that board was a total failure and complained of the neglected state of the Irish Protestant Church, which he thought should be brought into closer union with that in England. Lord Monteagle expressed his gratification at the statement made by the Earl of St. Germains respecting the national system, and deprecated the introduction of any scheme of edu- cation into Ireland, where it was plain that the plan now in force was the only one practicable. Lord Clancarty hoped the government would attend to these petitions, as he knew of nothing more fatal to the interests of Ireland than the national system. The Archbishop of Dublin hoped the existing system would not be changed. Nothing could be more erroneous than the notion that it had failed; the time would come when the public mind would bo disabused, and the merits of the national system acknowledged. Lord Stanley declared the firm intention of her Majesty's government to maintain the existing system, which had hitherto worked well, and from which he expected the happiest results. The Duke of ellington explained, that although he had many years ago been most adverse to a system for the joint education of Protestant and Catholics' he had ever since that system had been approved by the legislature earnestly supported it, and, as a law, done his best to carry it out. The conversation then dropped, and their lordships adjourned until Thursday.
HOUSE OF COMMONS. TUESDAY, JUNE 17. CORNWALL RAILWAY BILL. It was moved and agreed to that the report of this bill be taken into further consideration. On the question that the amendments (of the committee on the bill) be read a second time, Mr. F. Berkeley opposed the bill, on the ground that it was a dangerous and a roundabout railway, and that instead of being beneficial, it would be injurious to that part of Cornwall to which it had local reference. Under these circumstances he would move as an amendment, that the bill be taken into further consideration that day six months. Mr. Macaulay said that, as chairman of the committee on the bill, lie should not object to have the whole of the evidence .which u woukl be fully established He thought it was too much for any hon. member to ask the house to reject the decision of one of its eommittees on such ground as that hon. member had stated, namely, the represen- tation of an adverse engineer. After some remarks from other hon members, the amend- ment was then put and negatived without a division. The report was agreed to, and the bill was ordered to be engrossed. The remainder of the evening was entirely occupied with a debate on the state of New Zealand, consequent on a series of resolutions introduced by Mr. C. Buller. At a late hour the debate was adjourned till the next day, and the other orders having been disposed of, the house ad- journed.
ADDRESS TO THE ROMAN CATHOLICS OF IRELAND, From, the Conference of Protestant Dissenters held in Crosby Hall, London, on May the 20th and 21st, 1845. Fellow Subjects,-There are crises which occasionally occur in national history so momentous fas to warrant a departure from all the ordinary methods of political intercourse, and to justify an appeal, not to individuals, however distinguished, nor to any isolated bodies of men, but to a nation at large such a crisis, in our deliberate judgment, has now arrived, and we therefore feel that in embracing it, no further apology is ne- cessary. You are placed by circumstances, the origin and growth of which it is unnecssary to trace, in a position so conspicuous and so critical, as to attract towards you the anxious attention I of all patriotic men in these realms, and of the liberal and the thoughtful throughout the civilized world. On your con- duct at the present juncture, the mightiest and most sac.red in- terests are suspended, and with you, under Divine Providence, rest those issues which are destined to give a complexion for an indefinite period, to the history of this empire. Your fidelity to the great principles of justice must inevitably promote its peace, prospeiity, and freedom; your betrayal of them will ne- cessarily be the omen, at least, of their temporary disaster and defeat. You will not suppose that, professing as we do the principles of civil and religious freedom, we are instigated in our present appeal by a desire to cajole you into any intermission of your efiorts in the great cause of justice to Ireland. We highly ap- preciate her resources we deeply sympathise with her wrongs. We have ever advocated her claims, and we have long admired the patriotic zeal of her people to achieve, by peaceful means, the restoration of her unquestionable rights. You need not to be reminded that the Dissenters of England were among the warmest supporters of the Catholic Relief Bill; that they hear- tily advocated the equal extension of political privileges to the Irish as to the English people that they supported the claims of your country to an equal share in the benefits of Municipal Reform that they rejoiced in the abolition of your Vestry Cess and that they viewed with strong indignation the recent at- tempts of your Government to strain the powers of the law in the tyrannical suppression of public opinion. They have ever fought side by side with you in all your conflicts for social and political equality, nor will any misconstruction which may have been put on their conduct prevail to diminish the earnestness of their efforts in your defence. Still you cannot expect them to surrender, on this very account, the principles which, even on the occasions referred to, have regulated their public conduct. We have ever held that, of all the grievances under which your country has laboured, the establishment of the Anglican Church in Ireland is the most unjustifiable and oppiessive, and we pledge ourselves never to remit our efforts to remove from you this intolerable burden. We deem it a fundamental maxim, even of the commonest political justice—and in this opinion wo are fortified by that of some of the most eminent members of the Roman Catholic Church-that no compulsory payments can be rightfully demanded for the support of any religious sys- tem whatever. In this simple but vital principle lies involved the whole philosophy of Nonconformity. The slightest devia- tion from this ground would virtually amount to a surrender of our consistency, and would obviously expose us to the merited derision of all discerning men. Now it will be plain to you that the proposed measure for the permanent endowment of the College of Maynooth involves the most direct invasion of this principle. It places your Dissent- ing fcllow-subjects in the very position from which they are striving to rescue you. It violates their consciences as offen- sively as the Protestant Establishment, in its tyrannical exer- tions, violates yours. It re-enacts the obnoxious principle, it is an extension of the very system, which you, in common with ourselves, have long been labouring to overthrow. To tolerate this measure, is distinctly to sanction and assert that principle. It is impossible, moreover, to mistake the design of this mea- sure. If it could be regarded as a legitimate, though scanty instalment of the heavy debt of justice which England owes to your country, we should be the first to hail it; but, were there no other consideration, the quarter from which it comes forbids this supposition. If, as your justly indignant feelings lead you sometimes to suppose you have natural enemies in this country, it is with them that this measure originates. Defeated in their attempts to overawe you by the terrors of law and the array of military force, an oligarchy, notoriously hostile to popular feel- ings, addicted by their ordinary policv to measures of coercion, yet vacillating Iiii all their courses, and open to the influence ot the meanest motives, now insult your public virtue by the offer of a paltry bribe. We have greatly miscalculated the high feel- ing of the Irish people, whose modern history furnishes the most demonstrative vindications of the Voluntary principle— who, oppressed by an opulent and alien hierarchy, drained of their resources by aristocratic absentees, crippled in their com- mcrce by selfish restrictions, and, with all their unrivalled local capabilities, turned to the condition of a desert, have borne up the fabric of a religion on the sinews of poverty, and maintained their worship by the mites of indigence thrown into the trea- sury—we have, we repeat, greatly miscalculated the high feel- ing of the Irish people, if they are to be seduced from their lofty position by such fawning blandishments and transparent arts as these—if, like the ill-famed heroine of antiquity, they will surrender the citadel they have so nobly defended, in con- si deration of the worthless ornaments which bedizen the arms of their foes. No fellow-countrymen, let it never be said that you, who in your majestic cause have braved the terrors of phy- ( sical coercion, and who have risen unharmed from the fires of j legal prosecution, have yielded to the first meretricious smiles of those, who, from the highest seats of power have denounced you aliens in blood, aliens in language, aliens in religion."— From Burnet's Letter. I
Alarming Accident oil the Great Western Railway. SLofGH, TUESDAY EVENING.—This morning, an accident of a most alarming nature took place on the Great Western Rail- way, near the Langley sfation, about two miles and a half on the London side of Slough. I have been enabled to obtain the following particulars :— The express train left Paddington for Exeter this morning, at three-quarters past nine o'clock, the whole distance (¡ 9-1 miles), since this fast train has been established, being per- formed in four hours and a«lialf. The train consisted of the engine and tender, a luggage van, two second-class and two first-class carriages. Upon the arrival of the train at a point of the railway called Dog kennel bridge, the passengers expe- rienced an extraordinary undulatory sort of motion, and soon afterwards, the gravel and dust between the lines of rails was thrown up in clouds into both the first and second class car- riages, to the great alarm and dismay of the passengers and before more than a few-seconds had elapsed, the two first-class and one of the second-class carriages were thro.vn with fearful violence off the line down an embankment twelve or fifteen feet in depth, with a most alarming and dreadful crash. The screams of the passengers at this awful moment were most heart rending. Indeed, it was imagined that scarcely one could have been preserved, so sudden so fearful, and so dreadful was the lamentable catastrophe The first of the two second class carriages was dragged completely across the four lines of rails, which, having become disconnected from the luggage van, was there left in that position, while the engine, with its tender and van, proceeded onwards. I may here state that the whole of the carriages were nearly filled with passengers; there being upwards of 13D second- class, and between 50 and 60 first-class passengers. The only carriage having but four wheels was the luggage van. The weights of the respective vehicles, exclusive of luggage and passengers, were as follows :—The engine, 16 tons tender, 10 tons luggage van, 3 tons 10 cwt.; second-class carriages, each 7 tons; first-class carriages, each 7 tons 10 cwt. Within a quarterofan hour after the accident had occurred, intelligence of the unfortunate catastrophe reached Slough. Monsieur Dotezio, of the Royal Hotel, immediately had up- wards of a dozen of his carriages put into requisirion to convey medical and other aid to the sufferers and in less than half an hour several professional men were on the spot. In a short space of time, all were extricated from their perilous positions and it is most gratifying to be enabled to state, that amongst the mass of human beings thus hurled over an embankment, 15 feet in depth, travelling at such extraordinary speed, not one life was sacrificed I have already stated that the first two second class carriages were completely across the lines of rails, the other second-class carriage, and the hindermost first-class carriage, were thrown upon the sides at the bottom of the embankment, while the other first-class carriage, which had turned twice over in the course of its descent, was lying upon its roof, with its wheels in the air; the passengers, thirty in number, more dead than Jalive with (right and alaim. The engine and tender still remained on the raits while the luggage van, although off the line, continued attached to the tender, and in its upright position. Amongst those who were in the carriages, officially connected with the railway. I may mention the name of Mr. Brunei, the engineer in chief; Mr. Jones, in Mr. Brunei's establishment; and Mr. Seymour Clarke, the chief superintendent of the locomotive department, accom- panied by Mrs. Clarke. All these parties escaped with but trilling bruises. The moment after the accident occurred, every precaution was taken by Mr. Brunei and Mr. Clarke to prevent the possibility of any accidents occurring in conse- quence of one of the carriages extending completely across the lines of rails. Messengers were despatched up and down the line, to Drayton and Slough, to prevent the approach of any train. A special messenger was also sent to Mr. Howell, thjt superintendent at the Slough station, for an engine and car riages to be sent on to the spot where the accident occurred, to convey the passengers from the disabled train. By this time the down train, which left Paddington at a quarter past ten o'clock, had ariived at the Langley station; and also, at the same moment,(the train which had been despatched by Mr. Howell from Slough. The passengers, who had fortunately entirely or partially escaped injury, proceeded on their route to Bristol, in the train sent from Slough, while some returned back to London in the train which had arrived from Padding- ton the other passengers (as the trains could not pass by the spot where the accident took place) having been shifted and forwarded to their several places of destination. Upwards of forty persons, who were more or less injured, were taken to the Royal Hotel, at the Slough station, where they received the most kind and humane attention from Monsieur and Ma- dame Dotesio, and the whole of the members of that exten- sive establishment. Warm baths were immediately and gra- tuitously placed at the service of those who required them, and every thing was done by the host and hostess to adminis- ter to the comforts of their inmates. The whole of the hotel was placed at their service without any charge. Amongst those who were injured, and who were taken for medical aid to the Royal Hotel, were Sir Richard Vivyan, cut about the forehead Dr. Strong, of Rose Cottage, Herefoid (accompanied by Mrs. Strong, two children, and housemaid, who escaped with slight injuries), dislocated knee the Rev. Collingwood Hughes, of Avishays House, near Chard, and the familv governess. the latter ot whom received some internal injuries Mr. Bristow. of Haverfonlwest, dislocated shoul- der • and Mr. Colin Robertson, late of Ho niton, who was pro. ceeding to Plymouth as the newly-appointed manager of the National Provincial Bank of England at that port, severe con- tusions under the eye. I regret to state, that amongst those who are unable, from the state of their injuries, to leave the Royal Hote! this evening, are Sir Richard Vivyan, Dt. Strong, and Mr. Bristow. Mis. Davy. of Honiton, lace maker to the Queen, was amongst the passengers who providentially escaped unhurt. The carriage in which she was seated was turned over partially on its side, but leaving a sufficient space to enable her to creep out of the window, which was but slightly raised from the ground, on to the bank against which the side of the carriage rested. No time was lost, after the accident, to clear the line of all obstructions, which was effected within two or three hours and ttie rans ana siec^.o -i.~ nut- weic y put under repair by numerous workmen, who had been senc down from town. The presumed cause of this unfortunate accident is thus explained to me by Mr. Seymour Clarke :— The cause of the accident appears to have been, from what we have been enabled to learn, that the luggage van, which was a four-wheeled vehicle, and the lightest in the train, was, from some cause which cannot at present be ascer- tained. thrown off the line. the engine and the other carriages remaining in their proper positions on the rails. It proceeded thus till it came to the cast iron girders or troughs of a bridge thrown over a road leading from Langley to Iver, when it seems that it struck one of these girders, which threw it off the timbers into the ballast of the line, pulling with it, and against the iron girders, the remainder of the train." I walked up the line this afternoon, from the point at which the upset took place, to abridge called the dog-kennel bridge, for the purpose of making my own observations on the spot. f could distinctly trace the precise part of the line at which the luggage van first left the rail. This is upwards of half a mile from where the carriages were thrown over the embank- ment. When the other carriages were thrown off the rails, some evidently to the right and some to the left, as is indicated, not only by the marks af the flanches of the wheels which cut and splintered the sleepers but by the iron rails themselves for a half a mile having been cut, and long slips absolutely sliced off, by the flanches coming into sharp collision with them. In consequence of four of the upright posts of the tele- graph being knocked jdown by the upsetting of the carriages. and the wires severed, all communication by means of the galvanic telegraph, between Slough and Paddington has been cut off. This unfortunately caused considerable time to elapse before any intimation of the accident reached the Paddington terminus. rn consequence of this accident the train to Bristol, which should have arrived at that city at 30 minutes past 11, did not reach its destination till 4 o'clock, and at 5 o'clock the train which should have arrived at 30 minutes past 2, was still ab- sent.—Correspondent of the Evening Chronicle.
The Late Fatal Duel at Gosport. THE VERDICT. PORTSMOUTH, Tuesday Night —Contrary to expectation, the inquest was brought to a close this evening. Ihere were only three witnesses examined subsequently to those whose evidence was dispatched at an earlier period of the evening, liie only additional evidence that was elicited from them was, that the place where the duel was fought was in the parish of Tiehfield, and not in that of Alverstoke, as alleged. When the examination of these witnesses had closed, the Coroner summed up the evidence, and at ten minutes past six, Jury ^hred to another room to consider their verdict. the jury, after having been absent about half an hour, re- turned into the Guildhall, and by their chairman, Mr. Grant, returnedithe following verdict:— We find that the immediate cause of Mr. Seton's death was the result of a surgical operation, rendered imperatively neces- sary by the imminent danger in which he was placed by the in- fliction of a gun-shot wound which he received on the 20th of May last, in a duel with Henry Charles Morehead Hawkey, of the Royal Marines. We, therefore, find the said Lieutenant Hawkey and Lieutenant Edward Pym, as well as all the parties concerned in the said duel, Guilty of WILFUL MURDER. The jury would further express their unanimous conviction that every thing which the best professional skill, the greatest attention, and the utmost kindness could suggest, was ren- dered to Mr. Seton by his respective medical attendants."
ATTEMPT AT SIMCIDE BY MAJOR HAMILTON.—MARYBOROUGH, SUNDAY.—The Kith Light Dragoons, while en route, had a halt to-day at Maryborough, Major W. D. Hamilton in command. The major stopped at Fallon's Hotel, and not having called for any attendance during the forenoon, suspicion was excited, the more so as his bed-room had been made fast on the inside. The proprietor of the hotel, with others, forced open the door at two o'clock, when, to their astonishment and horror, they found the major lying on the broad of his back weltering in his blood. It appears that the. unhappy gentleman had cut the veins and arteries of his sword arm with a razor. Surgical aid was in immediate attendance, and the arteries were tied up. The majoi is a native of Bath, and attained the majority only a few months ago. He is better.— Freeman's Journal. DEATH BY DROWNING.—On Saturday evening, J. Bowers, of 30, York-street, York-road, a fine young man, aged 22, was drowned while bathing in the National Baths, Westminster- road. He sank suddenly, without apparent cause, and is sup- posed to have been seized by a fit. THE LATE FIRE.—An appeal has been made to the benevo- lent. on behalf of the aged widow and family of the late Air. William Raggett, who perished at the calamitous tire, ar 45, Duver-street, Piccadilly, on the night of the 26th ofAlav last, in his endeavour to save the lives of others. His eldest daugh- ter also perished on this melancholy occasion, Mrs. Raggett, the widow, who had unfortunately broken her leg a few days before th/>o fire, was with difficulty saved, and is now lying in a state of great mental and bodily suffering at the house of a lady in Dover-street, who kindly took her in. The late Mr. Raggett has left three sons and three daughters, unmarried. He had, through a long and laborious life, been struggling against adverse circumstances, and for many years rented this furnished hotel in Dover street. The little property he pos- sessed in the house was not insured. Thus his aged widow and family are left in a state of utter destitution, and have not a shilling tor food, clothing, or lodging, or even for the inter- ment of their unfortunate relatives. The smallest donations will be thankfully received by the Hon. Wm. Ashley, Alarlbo- 'ough House, St. James's; Messrs. Coutts, bankers, Strand; Messrs. Herries and Co., St. James's-street; Messrs. Drum- j nond and Co., Charing-cross Messrs. Lubbock and Co., Vlansion House-street; and Messrs. Hatchard and Son, book- lellers, Piccadilly,

RFCEIFTS AT THE GHAND SIAND AT ASCOT, DURING THE RACEs.-The number of persons who paid for admission to the grand stand, during the past week's gathering at Ascot, was greater than upon any former occasion since rs erection. On the first day the receipts were (for 3,240 persons. £ 810; se- cond day (for 464 persons), £116; third day, the Grand Day" (for J.620 persons), H,8t(h On this day (Thursday) it should be observed, the price of admission was 10s., while on the other three days it was only half that amount. On the last day (Friday) the receipts were not more than about £ 50, mak- ing the amount received between £ 2,750 and £ 2,8u0 This is exclusive of a very large sum paid for the rent of the refresh- ment rooms. This stand was first opened in 1839, it having been erected at an outlay of £ 10,000; the amount having been raised in 100 shares of £100 each. Five shares are paid oil" every year, so that in the year 1859 the whole of the receipts will be appropriated to the race fund, after deducting the tie-, eessary expenses fur repairs, &c. From the large amount re- ceived this year, nearly d2,000 will be appropriated to the race fund for 1846. EXPLOSION or A STEAM-BOILFR.—It is our painful duty to record an accident which occurred on Saturday, about one o'clock, at the foundry of Messrs. Nasmyth, Gaskiil, and Co at Patricroft, near Eccles, by which one man has been killed, and two otht rs so severely injured that their lives are despaired of. ft appeals that about three minutes past one o'clock, just as the men were returning from c innei to the foundry, such of them as had ariived were startled y a tremendous explosion, followed bv the crash of falling buildings and on running to the engine-house, found bot i it and several smaller surround- ing buildings a perfect mass o ruins, all the work of a mo- ment. Such was the force ol 1:ne explosion, that one part of the boiler, measuring about _0 feet am. weighing upwards ot two tons, was shot like a cannon ball mto the cnnal, a distance of at least 40 yards, knocking down the walls of the engine- iiiouse. the boiler sued, smiths shop, and a large wooden shed n which the dressers work and carrying every-thing be- fore it. In fact, every particle of brickwork in the neighbour- hood of the engine-house is completely in nfins. The en- gineer. John Kogers, was discovered in a few minutes, quite dead, and *'as-black a. his hat. Thomas liurst.the blast man, was discovered underneath the ruins, dreadfully burnt about his extumi.ies, but protected in some measure by a portion of a chimney, which preserved him from being crus hed to death. no uei suherer, who is a dresser and mender, was severely "trncli by a large piece of metal, in fact the boiler flew over his nead as he sar at work opposite the engine-house, clnd partolthecvhnder, upwards of 7 cwt fell within an inch ^f hir> teet. The accident is supposed to have been caused by a want of water in the boiler.-Mancrhester Courier.
