THE BROOKLET. SWEET Brooklet, ever gliding, Now high the mountain riding, The lone vale now dividing, Whither away ? With pilgrim course I flow, Or in summer's scorching glow, Or o'er moonless wastes of snow, Nor stop nor stay For oh by high behest, To a bright abode of rest, In mv parent Ocean's breast, I hasten away. Many a dark morass, Many a craggy mass, Thy feeble force must pass, Yet, yet delay. Though the marsh be dire and deep, Though the crag be stern and steep, On, on my course must sweep, I may not stay For, oh, be it east or west, To a home of glorious rest, In the bright sea's boundless breast, I hasten away. The warbling bowers beside thee, The laughing flowers that hide thee, With soft accord they chide thee; Sweet brooklet stay. I taste of the fragrant Sowers, I respond to the warbling bowers, And sweetly they charm the hours Of my wending way; But ceaseless still in quest Of that everlasting rest In my parent's boundless breast I hasten away Know't thou that dread abyss- Is it a scene of bliss ? Oh, rather cling to this Sweet brooklet, stay. Oh, who shall fitly tell What wonders there may dwell ? That world of mystery well Might strike dismay; But I know my parent's breast, There held, I must needs be blest, And with joy to that promised rest I hasten away.
THE EMIGRANT'S FAREWELL. THE last breeze from Erin Has passed o'er my brow, The gale of the ocean Is over me now; I leave thee my country! Farewell! though thou art The life pulse that stirs me, The veins of my heart. Erin mavoumeen, farewell! I gaze where the bright scene Falls back to the west, And tinges the blue clouds That hang o'er thy breast: The bark bears me from thee To sail o'er the deep, While on thy green bosom I gaze,—and I weep; Erin mavourneen, farewell! I weep, for thy spring-time Of beauty is oe'r; And feel. while my dimm'd eye Is on thy loved shore, Like the mourner, when fixing His gCèze on the dead, He bends o'er the cold earth Whose spirit is fled; Erin mavourneen, farewell The tear-drooping willow Hangs over thy lyre The chill-blast hath broken Each soul-stirring wire: Through the gloom of thy darkness No day-beam appears And thy sweet type, Ierne, Is gemmed by thy tears; Erin mavourneen, farewell! Farewell! for no longer I gaze on thy shore The mists are between us, 1 view thee no more Perhaps to my country I breathe the last strain Perhaps I may never Behold thee again; Erin mavourneen, farewell! Though in darkness, Ierne, Thy sun may have set; Thy emerald bosom I ne'er can forget; And while o'er the deep ocean The breeze bears my barque, My heart like its billow, Heaves deeply and dark: Erin mavourneen, farewell!
On Eloquence. [We extract the following interesting article from a cheap and entertaining weekly periodical, The London Journal.] There it no faculty or attainment so useful as eloquence. Whom does it not hold mute at its will ? In whom does it aot enkindle passion Its matchless etequenceis applicable every where, in all classes of life. The rich and the poor experience the effects of its magic influence. It excites the soldier to the charge and animates him to the conflict, The miser 11.aches to weep over his error, and to despise the degrading betrayer of his his peace. It convicts the infidel of his depravity, dispels the cloud that obscures his mind, and leaves it pure and elevated. The guilty are liviog monuments of itselertiOD. Ind the innocent hail it as the vindicator of its violated right, „d the preserver of its sacred 'eputation. How often in thecourlsofjusticed.es the criminal behold his arms unshackled, his character freed from suspicion, and his future hefd open before him with all it. hopes of honours, station and dignity And bow often, in the halla of legislation..does eloquence unmask corruption, expose intrigue, and overthrow tyranny J0 the cacse of mercy it £ omol ?eat[ It is bold in the consciousness of its superiority—fearless and un- yielding in the purity of its motives. All opposition it destroys all power it defies. 3 It has been generally considered that the eloquence of the an- cient "/eeks was far superior to that of modern times. The ora- tions ot Demosthenes have been pronounced the models of all human produclIODI-IO approach the neareat to perfection. So said a great authority, Hume—the historian of England. We are thus taught to believe that the great Athenian's mighty elo- quence will DO more return that Stentor's about or Fontarabia's blast of the horn. But the fact seems to be that modern orators despise the tricks to which the orators of antiquity used to resort. The ancient orators practised every art which could operate on the feelings or on the prejudices, Demosthenes, when he was about to go into the Forum, used to put on his dress with a view to oratoiical effect. Quintilian gives particular directions for the dress of the orator,—how to manage the folds of his gown and set the rings on his fingers. Gracchus kept a man behind him with a pitch-pipe to regulate his voice before the people. Hor- teoiius—Cicero's rival-prepared all his attitudes before a mir- ror. Antonios, when pleading for old Aquillius, tore open his tunic and exposed his wounds, and then made a pathetic appeal to Marius, which brought tears from that stern chieftain. Pype- rides saved the beautiful Phryne from just condemnation, by lay- ing bare her bosom before the judges. When Cicero was about to be impeached by Claudius, he went in mourning with the whole equestrian order. Now, if a modern orator resoried to any of these tricks, be would ooly be ridiculed. When Burke, in the House of Com- mons, on a certain occasion, af'er a vehement appeal, cast a dag- ger on the floor, there was a general titter, on Sheridan saying: The honourable ger t'eman has brought the knife, but where's the fork 1" And then the vehement actions to which the an- cients resoited—such as stamping of the foot and striking of the forehead and of the cheet-are gestures that are now-a-days ba. mshed, except from the stage. As to vehemence of thought and expression, they are as common now as they were in old time*. Who will deny, notwithstanding the many splendid passages, the great efforts of oratorical power, and the grand, beautiful, and bold strokes of eloquence that are told of the ancients, that we do oot heu of thiogsequally splendid, great, grand, beautiful, and bold, in the speeches of the moderns? What signify the instances, so often quoted, of the famous Apostrophe of Demos- thenes, to the manes of the heroes who fell at Marathon and Ptatca, while justifying the battle efChoeronea; or the equally bold Iigure of his antagonist, Machines, who called up, in his speech against Ctesephon, the illustrious dead of Athens, and, placing them around him, bid his hearers listen to the groans that the crowning of Demosthenes, who had conspired with barbari. ans, drew trom the tombs of those who fell at Marathon and Plata* or that bold figure of Cicero, when he represented the rocks and mountains as moved with horror at the bare recital of the enormineaot Verres? But, after all, is any of them to be compared to the following specimen of Whitfield's pulpit elo- quence 1 Coming to the close of his sermon, Whitfield made a pause in a solemn manner, and exclaimed-" The attendant angel is just about to leave the threshold and ascend to heaven. Shall he ascend and not bear with him the news of ONE sinner among all this muliiiude, reclaimed from the error of his ways'}" He paused again. Then he lifted up his hands and eyes to hea. ven, stamped with his feet, and, in a manner that left no doubt of his sincerity, with tears gushing in his eyes, cried aloud :— Co Stop, Gabriel I—stop, Gabriel!—stop, ere you enter the sacred porlals, and yet carry with you the tidings of one sinner converted to God The effect was electrical. The assembly melted into tears. But an oratorical feat, aim OIL as perilous as any ever attempted by the most eloquent of the ancient Grecians, was achieved (ac- cording to universal testimony; w.ih the most complete success by Patrick Henry, the famous American, in the Virginia Con. vention. on the final question of adoption or rejection of the Fe. deral Constitution. Towards the end of his speech,he addresses an invocation (that made every nerve to shudder) to celestial be- ings. "Lnokmg," as he said, beyond that horizon which binds mortal eyes," he pointed—as if hesaw them—to those ce. lestial beings, who, he declared, were hovering over the si ene, and awaiting with anxiety for a decision which involved the hap- piness or the misery of more than half the human race. What increased and prolonged the grandeur of this effect, was the fact, that the spirits whom be invoked seemed actually to come at his bidding, tor a thunder storm at that moment broke over the building, which shook it to its foundation. Availing himself of the incident, he seemed to mix in the fight of his ethereal auxi- liaries. rt'*tD8 00 the wings of the tempest, he appeared to seize on the arli lery of heaven and direct its fiercest tbundera against the heads of hia adversaries. The scene became insupportable. The house rose without the formality of adjournment, the members rushing from their seats with precipitation and confusion. From these and other reasons, we are of opinion that the an cients had not a supenor genius and energy to the moderns: and that we are nowa days, physically and mentally, equal to both the Greeks and Romans. The difference between their and our eloquence is explained by referring to the difference of cir, ca.sati.ucci under which they have been respectively developed. Now, there are five prominent causes which mainly contribute to this difference. They are-ibe difference of the theatre for the display of oratory-the paucity of laws anciently, and tbecharac. ter of the pleadings-tbe exciting topics discussed, such as revo- lutions, oppression of provinces, and so on—the invention of the printing press—and the superiority of the Greek and Latin lan- guages. In modern deliberative bodies, questions of great importance are debated for weeks, and sometimes months; and it rarely happens that much can be achieved by one speech, however elo- quent. But it was not so in Greece or Rome. There the orator knew, that if he could make a powerful impression on his audi- ence, he would gain his cause. The impetuous democracy would suffer no delay, and the decree would go forth immedi- ately. HeDce the orator tried not only to convince the judgment but to arouse the passions—the triumph of the moment being final victory. In proceeding to the second cause of difference between ancient and modern eloquence, it is well known that the legislation of modern times is much more complete than that of the former. There were comparatively such few laws, that a person could make himself acquainted with them in three months. The science of pleading-that beautiful science-was unknown to the an cients. Now, a great proportion of every trial consists of plead- ings. Every charge must be precise, specific, single. Every fact must be related with the minutest accuracy of time, place, and circumstance. The answer must be drawn with logical acute- ness. Every fact charged in violation of the law must be met by direct denial. Every accusation in vague or general terms is repelled. In this manner, the declaration on one side, the answer on the other, lead to an issue involving a single question, either of fact to be decided by the jury, or of law to be decided by the judge. This beautiful science of pleading produces an essential difference between ancient and modern judicial authority. It is unnecessary to point out how the character of topics dis- cussed now-a-days and in ancient times, differs. It is obvious, It is also evident, that the more agitating and important the sub jects are, which call forth the orator, the more grand and impos. ing will be his oratory. A state of peace, with great and agitating questions, is most favourable to the orator. The reason is plain. In war, force is more important than persuasion. The military chieftain is greater than the orator. Not so in time of peace. Tben the oiator is the great man of the age. To give examples. When the great question of the Crusades was preached up, Peter the Hermit and St. Bernard were the great men of the age. When Peter joined the army, he sank into contempt, the general being more im- portant than the orator. In the National Assembly of France- before the breaking out of the Continental wars— Mirabeau was the hero of his country. When force became predominant, Pichegru, Moreau, and Bonaparte, became the men of the age. In America, when the orators of the day were arming the people for the great battle of independence, Henry was the hero. When action commenced, Washington was. Now, in the age of Demosthenes, everything conspired to make the urator; and Philip, it has been said, formed Demos- thenes. The dangers which he created inspired eloquence. The invention of the printing press has powerfully contributed to change the character of eloquence. That great diffusion of knowledge which exists among the people, has destroyed that immense inequality which'formerly existed among individuals. Voltaire has compared the great men among the people of anti- quity, to a few tall cypresses amid a thick undergtowth of shrub- bery. To pursue the simile of Voltaire, the ptinting press has elevated the shrubbery, and lowered the tall cypresses, by ele- vating the mass and bringing down the gifted few. The noble has gone down on the social ladder, the retainer goes up." The orator now does not possess that commanding superiority over his audience which will enable him to sway it by his eloquence. There is too much light, too, in the world to make him the prin- cipal instructor. Yet such he was of old. He was the speaker at public meetings, the preacher, the newspaper, the published sermon, the pamphlet, the voluine-all at once. The fifth and last cause of difference between ancient and mo. dern oratory, is the dlffelence between the ancient and modern languages. Every scholar will acknowledge the superiority of the classic languages for the great ends of oratory. No language has ever equalled the Greek. The peculiar structure of that lan- guage dispensed with little words, and thus gave more latitude to the collocation of the related words in a sentence; aed enabled the speaker so to arrange them as to place the important words in that position which would give greatest force or beauty to the sentence. It is owing to this superiority of the languages that you can give no just translation of a speech of Demosthenes or of Cicero. Try to translate one, and you draw out the bullion of the speech into wire. You can form no idea from the transla- tion of the athletic and ponderous orator of antiquity, Demos- thenes in an English dress is as much like himself as a little slim skipping French dancing-master to the gigantic muscular Milo of Crotona, or a lean half-starved Normandy ball to one of the well-fed fat cattle of the Crowlaod or Bedford level. JOHN WILSON ROSS.
The New Ministry. The Times last Friday published the following, as a correct lilt of the new ministry :— first Lord of the Ireasury—Lord John Russell. Lord Chancellor-Lord Cottenham. Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs-Lord Palmerston. Secretary of State for the Home Department-Lord Morpeth. Secretary of State for the Colonies-Lord Grey. Under-Secretary for the Colonies—Mr. C. Buller. Chancellor of the Exchequer-Mr. Baring. Attorney-General-Sir T. Wilde. Solicitor-General—Mr. Dundas. Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland-The Marque's cf Normanby. President of the Council-The Marquess of Lansdowne. Ambassador at Paris-Lord Claiendon. The Sun, of Tuesday last, published the following announce- ment Lord J. Russell has called a meeting of all the members of the former cabinet, and of other influential Liberal leaders, for to-morrow morning, at his house in Chesham-place. The Mar- quess of Lansdowne, Lord Palmerston, the Right Hon. Edward Ellice, Lord Grey, and several others, have been in consultation with Lord John Russsell this day. Sir Denis Le Maichant and Mr. Tufnell have been in attendance also. Rumours have been afloat, that the Marquess ef Lansdowne, and not Lord John Russell, would be the Premier; but we believe there is no truth in the rumour. Until after the meeting of to-morrow, nothing can be with certainty predicted, but the strong leaning continues to be, and to increase in strength, that Lord John Russell will form his government without much longer delay." We copy the following observations from the HITald It has been mentioned that Lord John Russell has bad several con- fidential communications with Sir James Graham, since his lord- ship's return from the Isle of Wight. It may be that such is the case, though we know nothing certain on the point; but if such communications have taken place, they must have related to some routine affairs connected with the carrying on of the ad interim government, fur we can assert most positively that neither Sir James Graham, nor any other member of Sir Robert Peel's cabinet, has for one mon.ent contemplated either coalition or concert with the projected Whig-Radical administration," The Post has the following A meeting of some of the members of Sir Robert Ptel's government has been held at the Right HOD. Baronet's residence in Whitehall Gardens. The Earl of Aberdeen-who had left town for Brighton on Satuiday -was sent for to attend the meeting. His lordship, on bis arri- val, immediately called on Sir Robert Peel. The Earl of Lin- coln, Sir James Graham, the Right Hon. S. Herbert, and several other members of the cabinet, were present. The Lord Chan- cellor, the Earl of Haddington, Lord Wharncliffe, and Lord Granville Somerset did not attend the meeting. Earl St. Ger- maos has not yet entered on the duties of his office as Postmaster General, though his lordship was fully prepared to daso when the miaistry resigned. IMPERIAL PARHAMENT.—The House of Lords met on Tues- day last, when the Lord Chancellor declared parliament proro- gued to Tuesday, the 30th inst.
THE CHURCH. The Queen has been pleased to grant tanto the Rev. Charles ihynne, clerk, M.A., (commonly called Lord Charles Thynne), the place and dignity of a canon of the metropolitan church of Canterbury, void by the cessiou of the Rev. John Peel, late canon thereof. The Rev. S. Robins, M.A., of Shaftesbury, has been ap- pointed by the Rev. Dr. Wyndham, the rector, to the curacy of S'. Mary's Church, Weymouth, vacant by the decease of the Rev. W llloughby Brassey. The Rev. T. L. C. Claughton, vicar of Kidderminster, has II read himself in" as honorary canon of Worcester Cathedral. The Lotd Bishop of Bath and Wells intends to hold an ordi- nation in the Carhedral Church of Weils, next Sunday. The Queen has been pleased to grant unto the Rev. John Peel, M.A., the Deanery of the Cathedral Church of Worcester, the same being void by the resignation of the Right Rev. Father in God, George Bishop of Rochester, late dean of the Cathedral Church. On rhursday, the 14th instant, the Rev. Charles Avery Moore, L.L.B., was instituted by the Lord Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, to the rectory of Poole Keynes, in the county of Wilts and his lordship's diocese, vacant by the resignation of the Rev. F. R. Neve, on the presentation of her Majesty Queen Victoria, the patron in right of the Duchy of Lancaster. The Rev. A. G. Davis, B.A., has been appointed by the Rev. Dr. Browne to the incumbency of St. James's, Dudley. The installation and enthronement of Dr. Bagot, the Lord Bishop of the Diocese of Bath and Wells, took place in the Cathedial Church of Wells, last Thursday. The Lord Bishop of St. David's has been pleased to collate the Rev. Samuel Davies, incumbent of Oystermouth, to the office of Rural Dean of East Gower, vacant by the death of the late Dr. Hewson, the late vicar of Swansea. SECESSIONS TO THE ROMAN'CATHOLIC CKyRCH.—The Rev. J. M. Glenie, P.C. of Marks, Somerset; the Rev. T. W. Mar- shall, vicar of Swallowcliffe the Rev. H. G. Coope, Salisbury the Rev. Mr. Bilks, Arley, near Northleach Mr. Woodman, jun., of Littlemore; the Rev. Watts Russell, (son of Jesse Watts Russell, Efq.,) with his wife and sister; F. Fortescue Wells, Esq., Ttinity-college, Cambridge; and James Boone Rowe, Esq.. St. John's-college, Cambridge.—London Standard. The London police have received information that some thief or thieves broke ioto the parish church of Leigh, by means of the eastern window, and stole therefiom the altar cloth of fine purple, with silk fringe, embroidered io the centre with gold bullion, forming the letters 1. H. S.as also the contents of the alms box, which was broken open. ID consequence of representationt having been made to Earl Howe, that the accommodation for the poor who are in the habit of attending Curzon-street chapel, Mayfafr. was inadequate tor the numerous applications, his Lordship, who is proprietor of the chapel, and freeholder of the estate is that neighbourhood, has directed that three hundred free sittings should be set apart from the pews. A voluntary subscription, amounting to upwards of.E50, has heen raised by the inhabitants ofTenbury, and aconttactentered into, for warming and lighting the parish church with gas. In the parish of Kilbim e, in this county, there b88 been only one church presentation during the last 130 years. The charge is now vacant by the death of the late Rev. Mr. Urquhart, who was above 90 years of age, and upwards of 50 yeais minister of the parish while his predecessor lived till he was above 100 years of age, and was 80 years the incumbent. There will, doubtless, be many candidates for a vacancy which seems to unite length of years to a good living. Ayr Advertiser. A public tea party and meeting have been held at the town. hall, Regent-street, Cheltenham, to celebrate the recent church. rate contest in that parish. About four hundred persons sat down to tea, which was served up in the large room and after the despatch 01 this preliminary business, the company resolved itself into a public meeting. ] 0 the course of the proceedings, a letter was resd from the Hon. Craven Berkeley. M.P. for Cbel- tenham, expressing his disapproval of the imposition of church- rates on Dissenters. Th« Rev, Jenkin Tboraas presided on the interesting ocetsioa.
DOMESTIC SEWS. HER MAJESTY'S VISIT TO PARIS.—It is considered nearly certain that the Queen will pay a visit to Louis Phillippe nest summer, and that great preparations are being made both at the Tuileries and Versailles. DEPARTURE or THE GRAND DUKE CONSTANTINE.—On Sun- day afternoon week, the Emperor of Russia's ship Ingerman- land, 74, having on board the Giand Duke Constantine, of Rus- sia, weighed anchor and sailed from Plymouth sound. The corvette Vaaischafsky unmoored, and sailed at the same time. A royal salute was fired from Plymouth citadel, which was ac. knowledged by the Ingermanland. Six ships of the line, with a fifty gun ship, and a ten gun brig, were lying in the sound, and the yards were manned throughout the whole of this fleet, the Russian standard being hoisted at the main of the flag ship, the Queen, and at the mizen of the other ships, and a royal u. lute tired trom them simultaneously. On receiving this compli- ment the Ingermanland hoisted the English red ensign at her peak, and returned the salute. She then made her departuie by the western channel. THE BEAUFORT HUNT.—We hear that the country to be hunted by his Grace has been enlarged by the addition of some portion of that till now belonging to Mr. Horlock, which tbat gentleman has given up to the Duke, confining his own operaions to those coverts within easy reach of his establishment. By this arrange- ment Spy-park, Rowde-ford, Roundway-park, and several other meets will now belong to his Gtace's country. CAMPBELL, THE POET.—Mr. Park, the sculptor, is at present engaged on a coiossatstatue of Campbell, which is intended to be erected in George-square, or some other conspicuous situation in Glasgow. Mr. Park has already completed the model of the head of the poet. The figure is not to be clothed in the uopic- turesque costume of the present day but, like some of the antique statues, will only have the form partially concealed by loose now. ing drapery. Campbell sat to him for his bust about four years be"- fore his death, and the likeness is pronounced to be as faithful as. it is full of character. I During last week a remarkably fine bust of the poet Southey was placed in the Bristol Cathedral. It is executed by Bayly, another distinguished notlve of Bristol, who, from the life-like spirit he has imparted to it, and the felicity of its execution, must have entered upon his work with a kindred feeling. It is raised upon an octangular pedestal of grey marble, with gothic panneling, and a boldly-moulded base and surbase. The bust is of beautiful whfte marble, and is an excellent and dignified likeness, which is equally preserved in the profile as in the front view. The shoulders are covered with simple broad-folded drapery, wholly exposing the neck and part of the breast The inscription on the dado of the pedestal is— ROBERT SOUTHEY, BORN AT BRISTOL OCTOBER IV., MDCCLXXtv, DIED AT KEI!WICK, MARCH XXI, MDCCCXLIII. E. H. Bayly, R.A., London, was the sculptor. The bust is placed in froot of one of the antient monumental recesses in the North aisle, and nearly opposite the back of the choir pulpit. SHIPWRECK NEAR SKim ROCKS.—On Saturday morning, the 29th ull., the Olive Branch, of Plymouth, Captain William Prout, master, sailed from Falmouth, in ballast, for Newport, her crew consisting of the captain, a mate, and two boys. On Sunday evening, about eight o'clock, the veasel made Lundy, and passing to the southward, sailed up the channel near the English shore, the night being extremely dark and boisterous. About three o'clock on the Monday morning, the captain, sup- posing he was theo opposite the Nash point, and anxious to discover the light, steered the vessel across the channel, and having encountered a very heavy sea, in an hour afterwards the vessel became a total wreck, between the Stutcheons and Sker point. The captain and the mate, William Snowden, were washed overboard and drowned. John Evans, the elder of the boys on board, saved himself by getting on the bowspnt, and from thence casting himself on the rocky shore; and the other, William Turner, an intelligent bov of the age of 15, who reo mained last in the vessel, was washed on shore by the waves. Verdictll of '■Accidentally drowned" were returned in each case. THE FISHERIES.—During the put week the drift boats at St. Ives have been taking from 2,000 to 12,000 herrmgs per night.each boat, which have been sold from 2s. to 2s. 6d. per hundred of six score. Two boats sailed for Wales, with herrings, and some thousands have been sent by the Cornwall and Bril- liant steamers to the Bristol market. Mr. Bussel, builder of Gloucester, sold a horse at the last fair for £27; in a few hours it changed hands uo less than five times, and the last sale was made at £35. A new potatoe digger was recently exhibited in operation at Salem, West Jersey. It threw out upon the ground, with two horses, at the rate of five or six acres per day, and as fast as thirty hands could pick up and carry them away. The soil pro- duced four hundred bushels of potatoes per acre by the use of compost muck. SUICIDE.—Mr. Joseph Pratt, landlord of the Coach and Horses beer-house, on the Common, Hanley, (who was formerly a coachman), was last week found suspended by his ceck to a beam across the stable. He had been seen about half an hour before drinking some warm beer in the parlour. He had been some time in a desponding way, and had taken laudanum about a fortnight ago. Verdict, Temporary insanity." POTATOES.—Fine red Irish potatoes were retailed on Bristol Quay during the put week at 5s. per cwt. BRISTOL GENERAL HOSPITAL.—A donation of £5 to this in- stitution has been received from Mr. Wm. Cooke, of the Royal Circus. The market towns of Minehead, Watchet, and Dunster, are without a resident lawyer. Wm. Edmondes, Esq., of Cowbridge, has been appointed Sub-division Clerk to the Deputy-Lieutenants for Cowbridge Sub-division; and Mr. John Huckwell, of Llandaff, Sub-divi- sion Clerk to the Deputy-Lieutenants for Kibbor Sub-division. REPRESENTATION OF FALMOUTH.—It is said that a requisition to J. W. Freshfield, Esq., formerly member for the united bo- toughs of Penryn and Falmouth, to come forward aga-in as a can- didate for those boroughs, whenever there shall be a vacancy, has been circulated fdt signatures during the last week, and has been numerously and respectably signed by the constituency. The usual anniversary dinner of the members of the Smith- field Cattle Club took place in the large hall of the Freemasons' Tavern, 00 Friday last, at five o'clock. His Grace the Duke of Richmond, the President of the Society, was in the chair. There was a very full attendance of members—the number who sat down to dinner being from 160 to 170. SUPPLY op FOOD At a late meeting of the Cirencester Agri- cultural Society, Mr. Bowly, a practical agriculturalist of expe- rience and intelligence, said from what he had read, and knew of his own observation, he would pledge himself, his honour, and everything else he had, that there is at the present time more human food in the British Islands than ever was known at this time of the year. Arrangements are already in progress for the next meeting of the three choirs of Hereford, Gloucester, and Worcester, which will take place at that city in the course of the approaching year. There is no doubt, moreover, that it will be held in the nave of the Cathedral, the restoration of which will by that time be very greatly advanced. SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO THE MAMMOTH HORSE.—On Thurs- day afternoon week, at four o'clock, an accident happened to the Mammoth horse, which was near proving fatal to him. The room at the Egyptian Hall was crowded with Jadies and gentle- men, and as the groom was leading the horse around the room, thenoorio); gave way, and the horse's hind legs went into the apartment underneath. The animal plunged and struggled for some time to extricate himself, but all in vain. Mr. Carter ran to bis assistance, and by his herculean strength succeeded in extricating one of his legs, aDd the horse was finally got out with but few injuries his off hind leg was however much bruised and strained. The porter of the Egyptian Hall occupies tbe apart- ment beneath the room where the Mammoth horse is exhibited, and his wife was sitting at a table directly under the spot where the horse felllhrough. She screamed and jumped out of the window, while a clock near her was smashed to atoms by the hone's hoofs. Mr. Carter has had a strong double floor made since the accident. CThomas Stone, a person of eccentric habits, residing alone at i laverham, in the parish of Yatton, was last week found dead Q his house, with the upper part of his body much burnt, and a portion of his dress entirely consumed. From the position of his body when found, it is supposed that the deceased must have fallen from his seat in a fit, while sitting by the fire the previous evening. Verdict, "Died from theefftcts of apoplexy." In consequence of the Chartists having carried a motion that the rate for lighting the town of Bury should be £300 instead of £600, the boiough will be in utter darkness every night until February. lhomas Plummer Halsey, Esq., is the Conservative and Pro- tection candidate for the county of Hereford, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the Earl of Verulam. A labollrer's wife lately attended at the Droitwich Savings' Bank, and deposited £10, which she paid in silver fourpenny gieces, amounting to 600! The following capitel toast was given at a late dinner of the Hasty Pudding Club, in Boston:—'Our corn fed boys and corn-fed girls, the right material to form a corn-federation." When Professor Lyell got on board a steamer on the James River, Virginia, two black marines took charge of his luggage, who railed themselves Lord Wellington and Julius Csesar WITCHCRAFT.— Not far from Louisburgh there lives a girl who, until a few days ago, was suspected of being a witch In order to cure her of witch-ill a neighbour actually put her into a creel half filled with wood and shavings, and hung her above the fire, setting the shavings in a blaze. Fortuuately for the child and himself, she was not injured and it is said that the gift of sorcery has been taken away from her. At all events the intel- ligent neighbours aver that she is not half so witch-like in her appearance since she was singed.—Inverness Courier. Within the last week five hundred coach-horses worked on the great north road have beeen sold, in consequence of a further opening of the Northern and Eastern Railway. Notice has been given that an application will be made in the next session of Parliament to ob'ain a bill to appoint a stipen- diary magistrate for the mining districts of South Staffordshire. JACK AND THE "PEELER."—One day last week, one of the Exeler poliee brought down to Devonport a de-ertei from H.M.S. Queen, who had been captured in Exeter adrift." 1 he officer took Jack to the Admiral's office, and was intruded to convey him on board the Queen. On leaving the office lor that purpose, Jack said to the officer, You have been very kind to me since we have cruised together, so 'spose we go and have a pint of beer before parting company 1" The officer agreed, and the pint was called for; but while the policeman's eyes were fathoming the depths of the nmg, Jack gave him the slip, and is still at large, the policeman having returned to Exeter, minus his expenses, to be a laughing stock of the force. SINGULAR CIRCUMSTANCE.—Whilst the turncock was one day turning the water into Clowance-street, Devonport, a large eel, about thirty inches in length, jumped from the water-plug against him. He was not prepared to encounter so sirangean acquaint. ance, and had considerable difficulty in killing rt. THE INCOME TAX.—In answer to an inquiry of the Rev. C. F. Vardy, of Kentish Town, Mr. Pressly, of the office of Stamps and Taxes, writes to say that where incomes are 4,le- rived solely from voluntary contributions," as III the Use with many ministers of the gospel, the parties "are not required to make a return of the same for assessment under the Property Tax Act." ROYAL ARTILLERY.—One thousand recruits are immediately to be raised to complete the strength of this regiment; and as a further inducement for young men to enlist into her Majesty's service, the bounty money for enlistment has been raised from £5 15s. 6d. to £ 9 5s. 6d. per man. MORMONISM.—The disciples of this faith at Girvan have re- ceived great encouragement by one of their numbei acquiring tbe power of speaking io unkoown tongues reckoned a great feat. She had for some time back been very anxious for this gift, and having fasted the whole of lnat Sabbath, she on Tues- day morning was gifted with the power-and that with a ven- geance—alarming the whole neighbourhood with the most un- earthly screams and jabberiog—a most decidedly unknown tongue. This she has continued to mutter, only for her own I private benefit, ever since. We couldrecommend a, iutattc asylum for auch prophetesses.—^VT 4dverh"r. k
FRANCE. A tiifling disturbance took place on Saturday week, in that excitable portion of the capital known as the Quartier Latin, in consequence of the police resenting a demonstration of the stu- dents 01 the Ecoles de Droit eft de Medecine. The object of the demonstration was M. Edgar Quinet. M. Quinet, alter contri- buting to the Revue des Deux Mondes and various other petiodi- cals, was appointed one of the Professors at the College de France, and last year his public lectures attracted considerable notice. His advertised programme was the languages and lite- rature of the South," but, in reality, his lectures consisted of a history of the Christian religion and of the French Revolution, in which the former was treated with anything but leverence, and the latter, including the infamous National Convention, received manyatributeof admiration. The clergy remonstrated every respectable class of the community also condemned M. Quinet's tessoos and on the renewal this )ear of the College de France" lectures, M. Quinet was again entreated, and subsequently de- sired, to avoid propagatiog his notions of Christianity, the Revo- lution, aDd the Socialism, but he wrathfully resigned his chair, aud it was on this determination that the aforesaid students con- gratulated him on Saturday morning. They mustered to the number of about two Ihousand, and walked in procession to the professor's residence, being joined on their way by many other turbulent persons. One of them addressed M. Quinet, in terms of sympathy, in the name of the rest. ftl. Quinei thanked them, and wisely advised them to retire in peace, and disperse as promptly as possible. They marched back to their quarter, but, on parsing the private residence of M. de Salvandy, the Minister of Public Instruction, shouted "Vive Quinet V "A bas les Jesuiies "Abas les Salvandy 1" On reaching the Place Saint-Sulpice, they a^ain cried A bas les Jesuites in front of the Ecclesiastical Seminary. One of them made an address to the schools. The police, who had all along watched them, pounced upon the orator, and severely beat him. His comrades then rushed to his assistance, when strong detachments of muni- cipal guards and hoe made their appearance, and a charge of cavaliy closely followed. The students were routed. No killed or wounded are mentioned, but between twenty and thirty of Professor Quinet's admireis were captured, and conveyed tothe Prefecture de Police. The uproar was soon at an end, and created very little "sensalion" in Paris.
AMERICA. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The arrival of the New York packet- ship Hot'inguer, Capiain Bursiey, late last night, has put us in possession of papers from that city to the 21st ult., her day of tailing they do not, however, contain aoy news of impoitance. The auxiliary screw-steamer. Massachusetts, arrived at Holmes Hole, Nantucket, on the 19th instant, having put in there owing to the illness of the captain. The Britannia's news was hourly expected in New York when the Hottinguer left, as she had been telegraphed of fBoston the day before. The following are extracts from the papers: — At the Monmouth, N.J. Circuit, just closed, the case of Rogers v. Ivins,' for the seduction of plaintiff's daughter, re- sulted in a verdict of 1,000 dollars. Mr. Cabell, 'he Whig candidate at the Florida election, has got h:s certificate of election, as the law requires that the governor shall certify within thirty days after the election, who has a majority of the returned votes. Mr. Cabell was found to have sixty-nine more returned than Mr. Brockenburgh, who, however, has a small majority of the whole vote cast in the state. "Four attempts were made on Thursday and Friday even- ings '0 fire buildings of a cORlbustible character, in the vicinity of Brown's and Coleman's Hotels, in Washington." # ARRIVAL OF THE BRITANNIA.—RETURN OF THE GOVERNOR.GENERAL OF CANADA. LIVERPOOL, TUESDAY MORNING.—'Ibe royal mail steamer Britannia arrived here this morning with the usual mails, and 75 passengers, amongst whom are the Governor-General of Canada, Sir Charles Metcalfe (who leaves his government on account of ill health), family and suite. The general impression appeared to be that, though President Polk might perhaps reiterate his former strong assertions, his party in Congress would take no action in the matter, but that the affair would be negotiated in Washington. The Union, Washington paper, demands, in strong terms, the whole of Oregon, or none." Congress was to meet on Monday, the 1st of December, when the President would deliver his oration. Mr. Polk would recommend a reduction of the tariff to a revenue standard. EXTENT OF THE OREGON TERRITORY. On the east Oregon skirts 800 miles along the Rocky Moun- tains on 'he south 300 miles along the Snowy Mountains on the west 700 miles along the Pacific Ocean on the noith 250 miles along the North American possessions of Russia aDd Eng- land. This area or imrnfense valley contains 360,000 square milee-capable, undoubtedly, of forming seven states as large as New York, or forty states of the dimensions of Massachusetts. Some of the islands on the coast are very large-sufficient to form a state by themselves. These are situate north of the paral- lel of forty-eight. Vancouver's Island, 260 miles in length and 50 miles in breath, contains 12,000 square miles-an area larger than Massachusetts and Connecticut. Queen Charlotte's, or rather Washington Island, too, 100 miles in length, and 30 in breadth,contains 4,000 square miles. On both of these immense islands, though they lie between the high parallels of forty-eight and fifty-four degrees, the soil is said to be well adapted to agri- culture. The straits and circumjacent waters abound in fish of the finest quality. Coal of good quality aod other veinaof mine- rals have been found.
GERMANY. MANIIEIH. DEC. 3.—-The affairs of the German Catholic community have arrived at a new stage. Thocongregations, both here and at Heidelberg, applied at their very outset for licenses from the government for the public celebration of Divine worship. In answer to this, a ministerial rescript has been issued, to the effect that their application cannot be complied with till they bidj.* recognised chief, with complete civil rights, ar or at least till they have applied far and obtained formal tole- ration as a religious community. The so-called German Catho- licChurch will snake. but Utile progress in this country. The appearance of som$^ersons bas injured it here; but it would be a great mistake to suppose that the religious movement which spreads more and more would gradually give way to the old indiffereoce on the contrary, the idea of a union, of Roman Catholics and Protestants in one Christian CalholicChurch is much approved of in many quarters. We believe that a decided crisis in that direction may very probably not be long delayed.
POLAND. WARSAW, Nov. 21.— Ibe Jews io the kingdom of Poland are again subjected to another restriction. It is well known that one of their principal trades was the manufacture and sale of spirituous liquors. An ukase of the senate has now been issued, which almost entirely put an end to that branch of their trade. They are not to brew beer, to distil brandy or liquors, &c. they are not to sell them by retail, nor to live in inns, taverns, or pub- lic-houses of any kind, oot to employ Christian servants to do it for them.

EGYPT. ALEXANDRIA.—The Bishop of Jerusalem died of an aplo- plectic fit, in the desert, only !ive hours distance from Cairo, on the 26th ult. He was accompanied by his lady aDd daughter. Great preparations are beingmade in Cairo for the wedding of the Pacha's daughter. ■
AFRICA. The National gives a frightful picture of Marsbal Bugeaud's doings in Africa. It gay* — Two letters, from which w^ give extracts, bring us news which will awaken in the minds of our leaders sentiments of indignation, such as the dreadful exploits of Colonel Pelesster gave birth to some months back. M. Bugeaud recommences the barbarous war, which he had the deplorable courige to cry up in his official journals. Furious at uot being able to put down the insurrection which his incapacity had favoured, he takes revenge somewhat in the manner of those savages who use a victory only to proscribe and massacre. Alresdy have thirteen villages been burnt down in the neighbourhood of Tkmcen. General Bout- jolly, in the words of one of the letters, goes on rootiog out the populations, and killing without pyty every man that falls into his power. As many as fifty prisoners have been shot in a single day. In fine, to inaugurate worthily the new work of extermina- tion, the horrible drama of the Dahra has been renewed—two grottoes have been smoked out, and God only knows how many wretches have been killed there In place of burning men and villages, M. Bugeaud would de better to direect his attenliou to our enemy, who profits wonderfully by the delays of our army it was necessary for the Emir to advance as far as Loha, near Tiaret, for the General-in-Chief to consent to send after him one of his lieutenants, with some battalions and to come up with this antagonist, of such known activity, he placed at the disposal of General Jossouf a column composerl,principally of infantry! It was with 1,100 foot soldiers and 300 cavalry that this officer went in pursuit of the Emir to the skirts of the desert ot Sahara Infantry to art against a man unapproachable, well served atso by innumerable spies, and surrounded by the best cavalry in the province of Oran M. Bugeaud, however, deems it more use- ful and more glorious to renew the lamentable success of the Dahraj he is sure to be in every spot wheie Abdel Kader is not." The Echo de Nesove gives the following from a letter written on the 19th ult, at Marshal Bugeaud's camp :— "TheMarsha) reached Bel-Assel to-day, bringing with him the spoils of a monster raMia, made in the environs of the Riou. General Bonrjolly's column is od the Menasea, among the Flit- tas, where he has fixed his camp, at a place called.D>id Sidi Ben AJbdallah. From this spot he sends nut detachments in every direction, as from a centre, to the extent of twelve and- fifteen leagues, barrassing the people, "nd killing, without mercy, every man they meet with. On ihe 7ih, 44 Bedouins were shot in the country of the Garboussas. Y estercay, were scoured the fright- ful ravines of the Chaufu, ID the coiotry of the Sidi Gayas, and two grottoes, in which about 100 persons had taken teluge, were filled with suffocating smoke. We are carrying on a war in the true spi>it of Attila. Women and thildren alone ate spared. Abdel-Kader has become more power"ul than ever."
CRUELTY ON THE HIGH SEAS. I Alexander Gordon, captain of the tarque Natliesis, and John Cummins, mate of the same vessel, have been charged with having cruelly assaulted WIlham Scot, one of the apprentices on board that vessel, about the 20th ot.June last, while the ship was near the line. It appeared that one day, after crosCng the line, the boy had been rather tardy in getting op out of bfd. Cummins, the mate, went below with a rope's end, and noggei him up on deck. The boy afterwards came on deà, anf^ he *as sent aloft to tar the royal rigging, with nothing on him but a blue shirt. The mate followed, and struck him while aloft, atad the boy fell into the water. When he was brought on deck, t»e mate pulled the poor lad's shirt over his head, and the captan gave him two dozen lashes with a cat made for tha purpose, ihe mate wished to give him another dozeo, but the captain fe Wed; though when be was again brought on deck. the mat» gave hun a dozen lashea more. The boy was then taken into l e cabin, where his two persecutors said they would pour vitriol on hit hack, and being placed on hill knees, the master requested the mate to pour the vitriol on his back, as he was afraid lie s ouli burn his fingers, but the mate refused on the same grounc, though he afterwards poured out vitriol from a bottteon his back.1hisa.t8t_ement was supported by evidence, but a point 01 law beinf raised, the jury founded a verdict of acquitta) thereon in avour of the captain, and he was accordingly discharged.

OUR LETTER BOX. CHURCH RATES. To the Editor oft he Monmouthshire Merlin. He dies, and makes no sign: 0 God, forgive him Shafcspeare, SIR,—Your correspondent, "A Church-rate Payer" will write no more. We are not to be further enlrghtened with his lucubrations. I think he does wisely I think he would have done more wisely had he said nothing now. But that, of course, is a matter of taste and I leave him to please himself. I can- not but return bun my best thanks, for his last production; it gives me the opportunity of replying. He dies, and makes no sIgn." I think his own party will feel greatly inclined lo finish the sentence, and exclaim, 0 God, forgive bitn for, surely, it is almost beyond the power of human kindness to forgive such blundering. But I must not forget myself. Your correspondent is nettled hecause I said his letters were puerile. Well, I will endeavour not to offend more I will not call his last letter puerile," nor foolish, nor ridiculous, nor absurd but I cannot cMl it wise, or coherent or just, or good. I will, therefore, give it no name. Indeed, I hardly know an English word that would altogether characterise such a notable production. But my opponent is fallen—I will not tread upon him—"He dies, and makes 00 sign "-so let it be, I corne to bury Cresar," My opponent, it appears, did not expect to be answered in the way he has been. Had I anticipated this, 1 should not have meddled with the matter at all." No doubt of it; and I much question if there are not a great many of his own party of the same opinion. They thought, poor sapient souls, that the Dis- senters were all obedience, obligingness, kindheartedness, timidity and forbearance they thought they might be buffeted and cuffed, and kicked, and persecuted, and trodden under foot like simple harmless worms, and that they would not show any sign of resistance. Had they known that they could Itel like meu, and act like men (and not like reptiles, which they considered them), they would not have" meddled" with them. It is to be hoped that they will know better next time meddlers always come worst off. I really feel for your correspondent; he is placed in a peculiarly unpleasant position. In hIs filst lelter he gave a challenge, and, so confident was he in his own powers, that he would not give time for a repiy but thunders forth in a second letter, to clench the nail he had so firmly driven and now. poor man, because I have proved that there was no nail at all in the case, aud that he has only been hammering upon saw dust, he will not reply—it is infra dig to take any more notice of me; and had he anticipated such a reception, he would not have meddled with the subject at all." I do not doubt it; lam perfectly convinced that he is sincere from his heart's core in this declaration that there is not even a spice of hypocrisy in it. I accepted his challenge, however, and 1 am not to be answered. He does well. He cannot answer me. He dies, and makes no sign." Your correspondent is sadly annoyed that I have answered de- tached parts of his letters. I am sorry 1 cannot please him on this head. When a man enters into a contest, however, he must not expect it all his own way he must be content to take it as it comes. He is not to point out positions to his assailant that assailut will choose his own. lattackedmy opponent in his weak places. I thrust my spear through an opening in his hai- ness; that I cannot help. He should have cased himself with harness that was spear proof. If I have thrust him under the fifth rib, I have no apology to make I intended doing so. If my antagonist bas been steeped in Styx, all but the heel, and thereby rendered steel proof, surely it is no error of mine that I have struck him in the vulnerable part. He should not have lifted up his heel. Besides, how was it possible that I could answer all his puerililies1 Some of them weie so shapeless as to be incomprehensible; some so fragile as to elude all grasp. Besides, what would you say, Mr. Editor—it would require a double supplement every week to publish the correspondence. I attacked, I again repeat, my opponent's weak parts. I was per. fectly aware that thIs could not please him. I never intended it should. I did not write to please him. My opponent complains that I attacked him "in language the most abusive." I really must again say, 1 did not mean that yout correspondent should be mote pleased with my words than my arguments. Almost every epithet which I used, however, was IICriptural. I acknowledge that they were very pungent, and very tethng they were the words of our Saviour and his Apostles, however, and, therefore, however unpalatable they may be, I cannot be so profane as to offer any apology lor them. But, my opponent now blinks the question started with alto- gether, and goes to baptism 1 ItistheB-iptiststhatnowexctte his ire, and all his bile is vented upon the Baptists' baptism. This is somewhat strange, and I think the writer forgets himself altogether, for (and the coincidence is very singular) one of the present churchwardens of Trevethin was baptised, with this abused Baptists' baptism, a very few years ago, by the Rev. T. Thomas, whose goods he now deems it his duly to seize and con- fiscate. If the Baptists are so bad, and this baptism so foolish, why should any of the floek ot the church resort to them for the rite 1 Is the baptism of the church insufficient, and must they, as a matter of necessity, resort to lay baptism, to eke it out for their soul's health 1 This is really a very awkward and unto. ward circumstance. It is rather hard that the church party should resort to the Baptists for baptism, and then turn round and abuse them for the very thing they borrow from them They must get out of this dilemma as they can. This position is a veiy unenviable one, and 1 feel pretty confident that this will be as little pleasing to your correspondent as any thing I have written My opponent boasts of parties forsaking the Tabernacle," and going over to the church. I do not wish toconcea) from him, nor from any other man, the soriow that I fed when any one deserts the" good cause." But let us look to the subject. They leave the Tabernacle and go 10 the Church. Then, they either never understood the principles of the Tabernacle or, if they comprehend them, they preferred those of the church. In either case they were out of place. If they were church io prin- ciple, they ought to have been church in practice and I cannot, on their own account, but rejoice to find that they have, at fast, resotved to-be hypocrites 00 longer. I am sorry to have my ranks thinned but I would rathei have half a dozen at my side, who honestly believed the priocples they professed (be those priociples true or be Ihey false), thun teo thousand who believed one thing and professed another. I like to see men's bodies and soutsinthesameptace. Nothing can be more hateful, I think, than to see a man's body in the Tabernacle, and his heart in the steeple-house. The Tabernsele repudiales the iden of ils beiog a receptacle for soulless carcases. This case of desertion, how- ever, is no new one. Our Saviour himself said, he that received seed in stony places, the same is he that heareth the '.vcrd, and anon with joy receiv«ih it; yet hath he no root iu himself, but dureth for awhile for when tribulation or persecution arise h be- cause of the word, by and by he is offended." There can nor be a case more in point. The Dissenters, of Pontypool, suffer tribulation because of the word." The Tabernacle man, "who bath not root io himself," becomes. by and by,offended." Per- secution weedt the unfaithful from the faithful. The spiiituality of tha truth is too stringent for the meie professor—he grows tired of his profession, and turns for air more heallhfullo his dis- eased vitals, in the cold and lifeless foimalities of an Act of Parliament religion. It is the natural refuge for snch destitute— those who are destitute of" the root"—those who are content with profession wiihout possession. Such desertion is a natural, consequence, arising from a stringent proclamation of the truth, and is a strong evidence in favour of the Tabernacle. Let the unfaithful be weeded out; let those who have the name of the beast written in their foreheads," attach themselves to the beast. Still, I have no doubt, there will be found a large multitude who have not bowed the knee to Baal." The "strung bulla of Bashan," who-Are now bellowing so furiously from without, against the Tabernacle, are enemies enough, suiely. Let it, by all means, and at once, be purged from the wolves in sheeps' cloathing, who would wony it from within. Internal traitors are more to be dreaded than external foes. The ranks of the Taber- nacle cannot be strengthened by having a single man amongst them without the wedding garment." But, our Saviour, him- self, during his personal administration, had to encounter the like deseition. Some weie offended at his doctrine, and many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him." 1s this a proof that his administration was vicious ? If this was done in the green tree," surely it is no matter of surprise that it should be done in the dry." "The servant is not ureater than His master, nor the disciple above his lord." But, why all this chuckling over desertion ? Those who live in glass houses should he a little cautious how they cast stones. Surely, the Establish- ment, of all things, ought to be silent upon this subject. It was but the other day that an almost entire Establishment deserted its colours Rnd dissented and the conversions which are daily takiog place fiom the Church of England to the Calholic Church, (it is but a 8tep,certeinly, and a shoit one), are, surely, quite as numerous and as important as any from the Dissenteis to the Establishment. Verily, the church is in danger; but quite as much—aye, tenfold more—from within as from without! Your correspondent alludes to regium donurn. If he alludes to it to repudiate it, I shall be able, for once, to please him, for I heartily join him in his leprobation. I abominate it- 1 de- nounce it—it is cursed and polluted truck money. The Dissen- ters-the greatmajority ofthem—denounceit also. Government, will, however, force it upon the country, and I readilly allow that it is a very cenveoient thing, to be laid up in store, to be used as an argument in such a case as it is used by my opponent. I yield it up to him without the least reserve, to be used in the most pro- fitable way ho possibly can. I can well iffoid it. I will po further. I will give my opponent more-I will say, unfortu- nately, theie are Dissenters who receive, and Dissemers who distribute this corrupt and corrupting gotd I can only look upon them, however, 85 men who keep their bodies in the Tabernacle, but enshrine their souls in the church. This, however, I would fain hope is not to last long. The sliding-scale has slid its last, I piesume; but there are other things besides the corn laws, that are based uuon very slippery foundations, I think and if I should be allowed a word of friendly advice to my opponent, I would fain whisper in his ear, let him that thinketh hestandeth, take heed lest he fall." This may be language unpalatable to his eurs polite." I have hever been accustomed, however, to courtly phraseology, or practised in a slavish whine. I have, atwaygendtavouredto think honestly, and to put my thoughts, where they are found, into honest, homely, English words. But one word more. TRUCK My antagonist fairly and unequivocally Jinks church and truck together. With all my heart. 1 do not forbid the banns of marriage between them though, at the same time; I believe they are much too near of kindted to be united according to ecclesiastical law. I nevei felt so proud in my life as'l 'do at this moment, when the Dis- senters are denounced because they oppose truck and truck is extolled because it is truck that is to destroy dissent. Let it be scattered abroad by the four winds of heaven, that truck and church support each other; and that the one supports the other to spite and crush the Dissenters. Oh beautiful motive, for such a beautiful union. The rneu of Trevethin, I acknowledge, with your correspondent, have some litile penetration. I do not doubt they will perfectly understand this truck marrillge. The picture is to my heart's content; I cannot mend a single touch in it. I lender my antagonist my profoundest and most heartfeli thanks for this little paragraph—it is worth its weight in gold, ten thousand times, ten thousand tolrl-it is invulnerable. Yes, sir, the Dissenters abominate, repudiate, and denounce truck of all sorts. We would heartily wish to see every man who getg his bread by the sweet of his blow" honestly paId, III the Queen's coin, in accordance with the law of the land;" and we will use every endeavour, in teason and out of season, to hold up such oppression and fraud as the truck system involves, to hatred, scorn, and contempt. But 1 do not wonder at your cor- respondent's soreness upon the truck question. Spiritual and social truck have great affinity to each other. Aod it is annoying for the great spiritual truck shop to see Dissenters opening their own shops, so numeTously in allloclililies; and more provoking siill to find them providing goods so much superior in quality, and at so much Jess cost, than the goods offered in the one to which my opponent is attached, and in which, from his warmth. I almost fancy he acts as shopmati. I forgive him for his sore- ness-ititaverysoresubject. Let me not be misundetstood. 1 8m perfectly aware Ihal my opponent sayp, 1 1\ In no advocate of truck." 1 have heard of damning with faint praise —this is exactly the reverse. He evidently is ashamed of saying, in direct wotdi, that he epprore* of »uch a fraud and oppression. Yet, he gxultingly gloats upon the effects which it produce* and he does so mainly because one of these effects it, to deprive the working-man of the means of answering a good conscience to- wards God," by contributing, voluntarily, from his honestly earned wages (which are dishonestly withheld from himto- wards the support of that which his couscience tells him is the truth And yet my opponent, and his party, feel no scruple in taking, by force, from such working man, his tiuck-paid earn. ing for the maintainance of that which the said working man be- lieves in his conscience to be un-truth, and consequently morally wrong. A more hideous passage, than tbe one I am comment- ing upon, 1 know not, in the whole range of English literature. There is but one that can be at all compared to it, and that is the soliloquy which our immortal bard hu put inlo the mouth of the arch-fiend, whan in sight of paradise, he is contemplating its beauty and its happiness, with the hope of being able to turn that beauty into deioimity, and that happiness into misery. In conclusion, I will only add, I do not complain of your cor- respondent on the contrary, I thank him heartily for his letters, and should have been more thankful still if he had held any hopes of their continuance. He has made up his mind, however, to Die, aod make no sign." I shall not quarrel with him for this. 1 think he acts wisely" for himself, though not well." for my cause. The more my cause is written against, in this style, the more should I be pleased. Wishing him a better subject, and an improved temper for his next exhibition, and tendering you my best thanks for your kindness in inserting these letters, I subscribe myself, with infinitely increased satisfaction, NO CHURCHMAN. P.S.—These letters, I am aware, excite very opposite feelings in different parties—the one exults in what the other denounces. I have heard them attributed to IWO or three parties, who have never known any thing of them until they have read them in your columns. As, therefore, I could not give up any share of praise that may be due for them, so also, I would not willingly allow any one, unjustly, to bear the odium supposed to be at- tached to them. Will you, then, Mr. Editor, as you know my hand-writing, my lesidence, and my name, allow me to say that I I am not a parly in the contest, nor a Pontypool man. Perhaps neither of the parties in the contest are aware of the attention which the subject excites in far-off localities.

A GOOD ANECDOTE.—AS the good Deacon A., on a cold morning in January, was riding by the house of his neighbour F., the latter was chopping wood and thrashing his hands at the door. The usual salutations were exchanged, and the severity of the weather discussed, and the horseman made demonstrations of passing on, when his neighbour detained him with-" Don't be in a hurry, Deacen wouldn't you like a glass of good Jamaica this fine morning ?" Thank you kindly," said the old gentle- man, at the same time beginning to dismount with all tbedehbe. ration becoming a Deacon, "I don't care if [ do." "Ah, don't trouble yourself to get off, Deacon," said the wag; I merely asked for information—we haven't a drop of rum in the house." POINTERS.—An excellent author, whom we quote, perhaps cor- rectly, that no trade 8Mds into the world smaller and more BC, tive men than that of printing. Look to offices of trust and ho. nour, where trust and energy are required, and you will be most likely to find them filled with printers. Who make our best editors, lawyers, preachers, mayors, and congressmen ? Printers! Printing is a gloiious business, thus to fit a man for honour and usefulness. A College education is not to be compared with an education at the Case. One. of the greatest lawyers England ever produced was a printer. The greatest philosopher of Ame- rica was a printer. Who is the Lord Mayor of London ? A printer. Who are the Mayors of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Perth ? Printers I So also are the Mayors of New York Washington, and Savannah, printers by trade. The present Mayor of Boston was a printer. There are something like a do- zen printers in Congress-all of them honours to their profession. Printeis are looking up. The names of Buckingham, tbe cele- brated traveller; Wilson, the immortal Scotch melodist; Power —poor Power, who, with the President, never returned j" George Frederick Cooke and Phelps, the great tragedians; and a host of others, who have done honour to the arts and sciences in England, may be added to the above, as having been worthy disciples of Caxton. Who would not be a printer? To the young apprentice at the case or the roller-stand, with smutty face aud dusty finger, we would say—" Don't be discou- raged. A few years ago, all the distinguished men we have named above were similarly employed. Stick to your business, and every leisure hour that you have, employ in the perusal of useful books, and in the cultivation of your minds. Then the day will not be far distant when, if you are true to yourself, and contract no bad habits, you will become a useful and honourable citizen, exerting a wide and healthy influence."—Boston Paper
Corn Trade. In Germany, Poland, and Russia, the utmost scarcity prevails. The Governments of Holland and Belgium have already prohi- bited the export of grain, and the rulers of the countaes first- named are likely, should Great Britain proclaim her necessities by abolishing the impost on curn-to follow the same course. Some of the Eastern powers have deemed it wise to interdict the shipment of grain and pulse, and most of the states in the Me- diterranean have shown far greater anxiety to secure sufficient wheat for their own consumption by buying largely at Odessa, than to send any of what they have on hand to England. In the United States and Canada the wheat harvest has, it is true, been productive but leaving political considerations al. together out of the question (though it must be borne in mind that our relations with America aie, to say the least, in rather a cntical position), n )s scaicely reasonable to suppose that, with a demand from Holland and Belgium, any very great surplus will remain for export to England. Taking all these matters into consideration, we are inclined to think that circumstances no not warrant the present depression in the whent trade. Long t any change in the laws was thought of, it was anticipated that the duty would, in the regular course of events, fall in the spring of next year to a very low, if not the lowest, point. The wheat now in bond here, and that lately bought abroad, was purchased under the full expectation of such an occurrence and what is more, we may venture to say that the notion of Is. per qr. was by no means chimerical. Whatever, therefore, may be the ultimate effect produced on the value of grain in this coun- try by lowering the protection afforded to the farmers, the possi- bility of such an alteration being made. ought not to influence prices at present. Indeed, so far from anticipating increased samples of foreign, we feel disposed to believe that the uncer- tainty felt respecting the future measures of the legislature is likely materially to decrease the shipments of corn from abroad; and, on the whole, we can discover no sound reason why far- mers should sacrifice their property by pressing sales at a period least advantsgeousto themselves, tor such we conceive the pre- sent to be. 1 ht evidence of alarm manifested during the week have drawn from us the foregoing remarks. Though nothing has transpired to lead to the opinion that the defective nature of the yield and quality of the wheat crop has been at all exaggerated, and the potatoe fiilure is on all hands allowed to be nearly, it not quite as serious as was at any time apprehended, so great a change has been worked in the feelings of holders of grain within the last fortnight by political events, that all parties have shown a determination to force sales the consequence of which has been a serious depreciation in the value of the article. At most of the leading provincial markets the trade has been perfectly para- Used and, with every disposition on the pattof sellers to faci- litate business, they have found it impossible to icducepurcha- sers to buy largely. At Liverpool, on Tuesday, wheat was quoted 3d. to 4d. per 701bs. lower, flour Is. per IIItck and barrel; whilst all descrip- tions of spring corn and pulse fell in the same proportion. Later in (he week the depression was increased by (he news of the re- signation of the Peel Cabinet, and on Friday it was literally impossible to effect sales to any extent. From many of the other large consuming towns the reports are equally dull, and at several of the markets in the agricul- tural districts (includiug the chief shipping ports on the east coait), the decline in the value of wheat amounted to 4s. per quarter. by our Scotch letters it appears that a similar effect was pro- duced on the trade in grain at the principal markets, by the newt of a probable change in the corn-laws, to that which has of- curred in the south. At Edinburgh, on Wednesday, the utmost difficulty was experienced in effecting sales in wheat, at a de- cline of 3s. per qr.; and other kinds of corn receded in the same propoition. At Glasgow the fan was not quite so great; but there, as elsewhere, considerable unwillingness was shown to purchase more than just sufficient for immediate use. I he accounts from Ireland respecting potatoes are less favourable this, than the preceding week the disease having, it t is stated, been found where the greatest care had been taken in storing. Tbe effect which might have been produced by this intelligence on prices, of corn, had, however, been more than counterbalanced by the news from England; and business in grain has become nearly as dull there as on this lid, of the hannelt I The arrivals of wheat, coastwise, into London have been larlCe during the week, 10,790 qrs. having been reported up to Satur- day evening. Of the supply the greater proportion has gone direct to the millers, and comparatively little has appeared at Mark Lane for sale. The show by land carriage samples from the home counties has also been small: indeed the Essex, Kent, and Suffolk stands were nearly bare, both on Wednesday and Friday. The quantity received by the millers direct from the east coast has proved fully equal to their immediate wants, and they have consequently kept out of the market altogether. In this state of affairs, it is not easy to say on what terms business might have been done, but there can be no doubt that purchases of even the best qualities have been made at the close of the week on terms which could not have been accepted in the com- mencement. Holders of free foreign wheat have hitherto dis- played considerable firmness; at the same time, it must be remarked that, owing to their having refused to accede to any dechne of importance, the demand has been wholly checked quotations can therefore only be regarded as nominal at present. The reported probalility of a free trade or a low duty has failed to encourage speculation in bonded wheat: and so fat from any improvement having taken place in prices, it has been quite impossible to sell at previous rates. Some of the town millers reduced the top quotatious of Flour 2s. per sack before the close of business on Monday, and the re- duction has since been generally acceded to by the principal manufacturers. Ship Flour bas fallen in the same proportion, but the decline has not hitherto led to an increased demand. Barley has come to hand rather freely, and the inquiry for this grain having been the reverse of active, sellers have been under the necessity of submitting to a further abatement: even the best malting qualities were easier to buy on Ftiday. and to have placed the common runs, lower terms must have been ac- ceded to. Malt has hung very heavily on hand, and its former value has barely been maintained. In addition to a. good supply of Oats from our own coast (6,928 qrs.), 3,268 qrs. have come to hand from Scotland. 5,077 from Ireland, and 10,696 qrs. from abroad, making together rather a large arrival. The principal dealers having still fair stocks on hand. have declined purchasing, the trade has con- sequently been excessively languid, and the tendency of prices has been decidedly downwards. Beans have been placed with difficulty at Monday's reduction and to have sold any quantiiy of peas on Friday, even lower than those current in the beginning of the week must have been accepled.-MaTk Lane Express.
LONDON MARKETS. MARK-LANE, MONDAY, DEC. 15. We have had large supplies of wheat since this day week, which, with the unsettled state of the trade, in consequence of the ministerial crisis, have further depressed the market and we note to-day a declIne of 2s. to 3s. per qr. on English wheat. foreign wheats meet a limited demand, and sales of anv extent cannot be made within Is. to 2s. of late prices. Holders of bonded wheat remain firm, and little business doing in conse- quence. Flour very dull. and ship samples attain Is. per sack lower. The samples of barley are very largj none but the finest samples are saleable at last week's prices all ordinary sorts ate Is. per qr. lower, and very dull of sale. Beans of all sorts are In. to 2s. per qr. cheaper. White peas 3s. per qr., and maple and grey Is. to 2s. per qr. lower.

This being the day appointed for holding the Great Christinas Market, the attendance of both town and country buyers was numerojs at a very early hour. As was to be expected, the arrivals of beasts, from nearly every part of England, were large, though not quite equal in number to those at the corresponding day in 1B44, when 5,713 were shown. The beef trade must be considered inactive, at currencies varying from 3s. 6d. to 4s. 8d. per Bibs. and at which a total clearance was not effected. The numbers of sheep were on the increase, and of unusually prime quality indeed, the oldest man living never saw so splendid a collection of that description of stock as was the case here this morning. As to weight, the Downs wete in admirable order; while the Rents, Leicesters, G loucesters, and all other breeds were in excellent condition. Although the mutton trade was not to say brisk, a full average amount of business was doing, and last week's quotations were supported in every instance. There was only a moderate number of calves on offer. Prime qualities of veal were in demand, at late rates, but other kinds hung on hand still, the whole of the supply was disposed ot. 1 he show of pigs was extxemely good in quality, but the num. ber was by no means large. Each kind of pork sold readily, at fully, but at nothing quotable beyond, last week's prices. Considering the vast supplies of stock here this morning, everything passed off extremely well, the aocommodation being of the saire character as those provided last year.
