CARLTON CuB—Notice has been given at this Conserva- tive" establishment, respecting a costly extension of the club. house, and a meeting of the club is siimmoned to consider this measure. A noble duke and another trustee have meanwhile posted up at the club, notice of an amendment to the effect 'fila: 110 proceedings be taken involving such outlay until after the general election a signal of a split, which has created no little consternation, accompanied as it is with a loud rumour that a new paity, headed by A] r. Bankes and others, is organising upon the Protestant and Constitutional basis, and to which above one hundred M.P.'s have already given in their adhesion. I a ve CARMARTHEN, AUG. 4.—The corn in this noghbourhoodhas made but very Intle progress towards maturity for the last fort- niat, and the weather for the last six days has been most unpro piuous for the crops, and I fear will be productive of much da- md!le. 1, has been almost a continuous he avy rain, with bois- terous winds, which has lodged all the corn in this district and and the In^li floods have covered seveial a-res in the vale of Towey. The harvest will Le full a month or five weeks later than last year. THE HARVEST.—Harvest has commenced in several places in the neighbourhood ot this citv, and the crops are very fine, espe- 1 cully between here and Haldon.

MURDER. LEICESTER, MONDAV.—-A murder of a Most ;iA- palling character occurred here this morning. A voung man, about four or five and ttMiuy^jam^ work kuitter, had lived wltb his wife for some time past in a small tenement, in a street leading out of what is called the Newurket (occupying it jointly with his biother, who is alsowiauied). Tbeir matrimonial career, but of about rhree years' duration, has been, it is said, most unhappy from its commencement. The wife is reported to have been a still,steady, hardwoikibg woman, and he, on the contrary, to have been improvident and idle. Tber had been, it was well known, but poorly off for some time, and he was determined at length to fall upon the union house. This his wife strenously resisted, declaring her intention of proceeding to Birmingham, where her mother and a sister reside, and there earn her own maintenance. This morning was fixed upon by her for her departure hence. About six o'. iock the husbanJ, who, in consequence of their disagreements, had slept ai his mother'a overnight, knocked at the door, desiring his wife to let him in. She came down, but with her night-clothes on, and had no sooner opened the door than a sc earn was heard, and the brother and his wife coming down on the instant, the unfortunate wo. man, the wife of William Hubbard, was found weltering in her blood, with a frightful gash in her throat, from which the life- blood was still flowing in torrents indeed, she was only noticed to give a deep sigh ere she expired. The murderer fled imme- diately down a lane leading to the Leicester canal, along the towing-path of which be ran for some hundreds of yards, and, cossing into a Mr. Stretton's field, bid himself in a dike, nearly covered with nettles and biiars, where he was found in less than an hour afterwards, by some lads, who, with a great number of policemen and others, instantly set off in search of him. Ha made little or no resistance, but expressed his sorrow for what he had done. No knife, razor, or other instrument with w).). h the deed appears to have been committed, was found either upon him or upon the premises where the murder was perpetrated. The most probable supposition is, that the instrument was a knife used lor the purpose of scraping the butchers' stalls in the mar- ket-place, at which the prisoner's father had been employed for many years, and this may have been thrown in the liver by the unhappy man himself as he passed. Hubbaid underwent a brief examination this morning before two of the borough magistrates and was remanded until Monday next. The coroner's inquest is expected to be held to-mortow, tbe result of which will duly appear. The prisoner's demeanour before the magistrate* was remarkably cool and collected, and he appeared to eviuce little apprehension for the ultimate consequences of his act. MURDER AT SELBY. On Monday last, an inquest was held at the house of Mr. Cape, the Junction Tavern, Selby, before Matthew Pearson, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of Eliza- beth Watson, who died by the hand of her husband, George Watson. fhe particulars of this tragical occurrence may be gathered from the following evidence :—Mrs. R. Lowther stated she had known the deceased some time. She came to her house on Friday, the 1st of August, about one o'clock, p.m., and said her husband, George Waison, wanted to speak with her; she went with deceased, when George Watson told her he had deter- mined to become a new man lie said he had wrote down in a book that he would never taste liquor again then he kneeled down and kissed the book, sat beside his wife, and kissed her. and said, no one loved his wife better than he did, and would behave better than ever he had done. Went in again about two o'clock, he seemed then in the same state, and quite a penitent. Witness did not see him again until after the occurrence. Wit- ness considered him to be quite sober when she saw him. Heard a scream about eight o'clock thateveuing; tan out, and found two women leading deceased to her brother's. Witness tollowed them, and asked the deceased where she was hurt. Sne said the lower part of her body, and put her hand to the place. She was put to bed shortly afterwards. Deceased said he had killed her, and repeated it many times she expected not to get better, and had no wish to do so. Deceased was asked if they were on as good terms as before, during the afternoon 1 She said yes. Deceased stated she went down the yard with some shoes, when she returned, he (George Watson) took her as she entered the back door, by her shoulders, and put the knife to her body, and the deceased stated the blow he struck her on the shoulders hurt her as much as the knife. Witness saw her frequently afterwards, and she never contradicted what she had ..id. Mr. Burkett. surgeon was next examined. lie said I was called into George W>tsnn in bed1 •* Cf oa Friday evening. I found Mis. from her husha'nd i e ,ID^0,med me she had received a wound from her ousD8Qd iq the lower nart l.„ » j j j M • P#r* of her body, and she wished me to examine her immediate'y. Witness did so, and found a p°rt.on of be'omentum portruding through tbe womb this he put back into the body .nd closed the^ound with '.dhesive poster. Her pulse was feeble, and the extremities livid and cold. Her stomach was irritable, and «>!» h A L J T„ „N H«. J "e "aci a verv "cute pain •n the body. In an hour and a half, she became very cold and clammy, the extremities being very discoloured. At eleven o'clock, the symptoms aggravated. and ,he bcMine imoei. ceptible. A,Jl?.lf'P8St..lhrce 0 clock *aw her again, symptoms again worse. VVitness did everything lo restore animation of the system, which he found unavailable he saw her again at half- past seven in the morning and stayed with deceased till nine o'clock; he then lold ber she could not recover. At this time deceased said, I am a murdered Woman-I forgive him, but do not allow him to come into my presence." Witness did not leave her much that day she died about eight o'clock. Witness made a post morttm examination, and had examined the wound particularly, at the bottom or centre of the body thinks the knife produced would make such a wound. The knife had gone throngh the covering of the body, and through a small portum of the omentum, also through the small intestines and penetra'ed into the bladder. Witness attended Watson. Went to him after seeing deceased on Friday evening. Found him in the kitchen at home. Found a large wound on the left side of the neck, and in front of the throat, about three inches long—it ap- peared cut at one stroke. VVitness fouod blood on his shirt and clothes, and in the yard. Thinks the blood did not come from deceased. He (G, Watson) called his wife, and said she had been cohabiting with a man named Hemingbrough, and that he had stabbed her. Other evidence was then adduced and the jury returned a verdict of Wilfnl Murder against George Wat- son. The deceased was interred in the afternoon, in the pre- sence of a large number of people. The prisoner was removed to York Castle, by the twelve o'clock train, on Tuesday.—Don- caster Gag'tte. THE CONDEMNED AT EXETER—When the tidings of their respite was communicated to the prisoners, they all received it with gratitude and delight, except the imperturbable Serva. This man (the captain of the Echo, a schooner of 70 tons only, with 434 slaves stowed and packed in it) has stood alike unmoved by the terrors of this world and the world to come. For three dajf, though smitten with a foul and loathsome disease, he underwent the ordeal of the tiial without manifesting the slightest sign of uneasiness. He received the doom of death without emotion, and he has since rejected the consolations of religion and the holy offices 01 the priest, with a cold and bitter sneer. He says his own heart is the depository of its own secrets, and no mortal man shall wrest them from him. He received the merciful de- claration of the high sheriff unmoved, and turned away with as much apathy as if the message of prolonged life and rekindling hope had been the most ordinary matter which a heedless man could impart to an indifferent one. It is satisfactory to know, on the authority of Sir Jas. Graham, that the personal honour" of Messrs. Boldero and Bonham is in such fine preservation, after the trouble and turmoil they have undergone. The Home Secretary, in the debate of Monday night, assured the House of this important fact, and he, we one- pect, is an excellent judge of the value of honour, notwith* standing any possible personal deficiency that may be imputed to him. Sir James said, moreover, that he was "as proud to call him his friend as ever a thing we can readily credit. Richard I., while in Normandy, made some curious laws for regulating the conduct of his soldiers in their passage by sea.— Murder was to be punished by casting into the water the deceased person, with the murderer tied to him. He that drew his sword in anger should lose his baud. If a man gave another a blow, he was to be thrice immersed. An ounce of silver was the pe- nalty for using opprobrious language. A thief was to have boil- ing pitch and feathers put upon his head, and was to be set on shore the first opportunity. In the decline of life the most safe and efficacious occasional medicine, for giving tone and stiength to the stomach, and acting, at thesame time as a gentle and;healthful aperient, is Frampton's Pill of Healtb-a family restorative which has conferred the most essential benefits upon those who have fortunately had re- course to its health-restoring aid, enabling them to apply to themselves the well-known line of Shakespeare-" Though I look old, yet am I strong and lusty." ARTIFICIAL TEETH.—The attention of those who have lost thur teeth is especially directed to the following observations The extraction of the few teeth or roots which may remain in the mouth, is insisted upon by many dentists, previously to prepar- ing artificial teeth. This is not necessary, as by Mr. Thomas's improved method they can be fixed in the mouth, with the greatest accuracy, answering most fully every purpose of articu- Ution and mastication; and so perfectly natural in appearance as to defy detection by the closest observer, without extracting any teeth or slumps, or giving any pain whatever. The new Incorrodible Teeth, invented by Mr. Thomas. Surgeon Dentist, 64, Berners-street, Oxford-street, London, will be found much more economical than most others. HOLIOWAY'S OINTMENT AND Pir.Ls.—Mr. Samuel Coudy, a carpenter and builder, residing at 24, Houghton-street, Clare- market, was, on the 21st ot October last, admitted a patient, with three dreadful ulcers on the back part of his neck, at King's College Hospital, and continued so up to the 24th of March last, when he was dischaiged as incurable. He has, how- ever, been radically cured, in a very sliort space of time, by the above invaluable medicines. This is another proof tha' any wound or ulcer, however dangerous, may, with certainty, be cured by their means when every other means have failed.
