THIS Institution is empowered by a Special Act of Parlia- JL ment, and is so constituted as to afford the benefits of Life Assurance in their fullest extent to Policy Holders, and to pre- sent greater facilities and accommodation than are usually offered by any other Companies. Among others, the following Important Advantages may be enumerated ;— Increasing Rates of Premium ou a new and remarkable plan for securing Loans or Debts; a less immediate payment being required on a Policy for the whole teim of life, than in any other Office. CREWT TABLE.—By this Table, the Premiums may remain un- paid for five years upon satisfactory security being given for the liquidation of the same. at the expiration of that puiod. HALF CREDIT RATES OF PREMIUM. Persons assured according to these rules, are allowed credit (without security) for half the amount ot the first seven Annual Premiums, paying interest thereon, at the rate of Five per Cent, per AnnurO, with the option of paying off the Principatat any time. or having the amount deducted from the sum assured when I the Policy becomes a claim. Policies may thus be effected at lower rates than are generally required for the term of seven years only whilst the holders have the same security for the payment of their claims, whenever death may happen, as if they paid double the amount of pre- miums, which would be charged tor assurance effected in the same wai. Policies revived without the exaction of a fine, at any time within twelve months, A Board of Directors in attendance daily at two o'clock. Age of the Assured in every case admitted in the Poiicy.

A NATURAL REMEDY AND CEItTAlN CURE For Gout, Rheumatism, and Scrofula, Diseased Joints, Lumbago, Skin Diseases, Spinal Glandular Affections. Scrofula Ulcers, Stcelled Legs, And all EXTERNAL DISEASES, arising from .n'! impure Itate,of the Blood, or from DOMESTIC ACCI ENTS- Sprains, Bruises, Wounds, Scalds, Burns, Chilblain; Chapped Hands, &c.,&c. THE following Testimonials, with authenticate cahapped extraordinary cure, are from the highest and most respec- table authority: Cod Liver Oil in cases of Gout and Rheumatism. The diseases in which the Cod Liver Oil is attended with the most extraordinary results. are GOUT and RHEUMATISM. *t is rather a curiouj fact, and one that fully establishes the truth of what we have already stated, that Aomeyearsa^rCod Liver Oil was introduced into Manchester, by a celebrated German practi- tioner. then on a visit to Dr. Kay, Physician to the Manchester Infirmary, who was the first medical man who prescribed this re- medy for the cute of Gout and Rheumatiim, in this country. Mr. Darby, House-Surgeon and Apothecary to the same institution, gave the following account of an extraordinary cure: A wo- man, who laboured under the most exoruciating rheumatism* being advised to rub her joints with the oil, after a lew weeks, was restored to the use of her limbs, and was cured." Encouraged by this extraordinary euro, Dr. Kay continued to prescribe it tor other patients in similar cases, and with the same success. Dr. Bardsley, also. when treating of chronic rheumatism, observes, In instances, when every other means have failed, Cod Liver Oil has operated in a manner, so uecidedly beneficial, as to excite astonishment." The circumstances under which this specific remedy is found most advantageous, are the follo\ving :-lst, Iu the chronic rheumatism of elderly persons, when the muscles and tendons have become rigid, and the joints nearly iuflexible, in conse- quence of the disease having been brought on by excessive labor, hard (are, dampness, and cold. 2nd. In women, whose cousn- tutions have been worn out by repeated iheumatic attacks, espe- cially in the decline of life; and patients who were unable either to preserve the body in an erect position or suppoit its weight on the lower extremities, have recovered entirely by rub- bing the oi Ion the affected parts. Dr. Brefield's Opinion, v ith cases of cuie. Another celebrated physician, Dr. Brefitki, found the Oil of the greatest benefit in cases wheie the Gout or Rheumatism appears to have seized upon the whole system, and when, as the result of long suffering, the body is wasted, the process 01 nutri- tion very slow, there is a want of sleep, loss of the vital powers, languid expression of countenance, contraction of the muscles, &c.,&c.; and mentions the following case of Mrs. Mearman, 30 years old, who had been conlined to. her bed or room, and only in the warm summer months, experienced a slight allevia- tion of her suffeiings :-Nearly the whole body was attacked, but principally the inferior extremities, back, and shoulders. Walking was entiiely prevented by the insupportable pains, stiffness, and swelling of the joints. this patient was wasted, of a bleachy whiteness, and had lost all hope 01 relief, although originally of a strong and robust constitution. The use of the Oil daily, was soon followed by a beneficial result, and after some time she was restored to a tolerable state of health. This persoo. afier this, was .^ree years from the time he saw her, •rfectly healthy, well-gourished,blooming, and of robust ap peaiance. Cod Liver Oil in Old Age and Rigid Muscles Men and women advanced in years, whose fibres may be sup. posed to have acquired a degiee of rigidity, find surprising effects from the use of this remedy. Some who have been crip- pies for many years, and not able to move from their seats, have, after a tew week's use of it, been able to go with the assistance of a stick and by a longcontiuuance have enjoyed the -atisfaotion of 1 eing restored to the natural use of their limbs, which. for a long time before, had been a burtben to them. Dr, Peicival, of the Manchester Iufiimary. says, 1 have had the fullest evidenceof the successful use of Cod Liver Oil, and have contrasted, by ex- periment, its value with other remedies; these trials always terminated in favour of the Oil; and patients who were under other treatment, by conferring with their fellow-sufferers, were so sensible of making a slower progress towards recovery, as to require a change of one remedy for the other. The above is only a small number of an immense number of Testimonials that have already been received in support of the extr«ordinaiy properties of this truly wonderful NATURAL REMEDY. Prospectuses, containing additional evidenceof the value of Cod Liver Oil in other diseases, with general remarks on its Natural and Commercial History, its Physica* and Chemical Properties, Action on the Human Economy, &c. alsopanicular directions for its proper application, will be sent to any address on the receipt of two postage stamps.

The late gales have caused most disastrous results—human life has been lost to a fearful extent, and every post adds to the melancholy catalogue. An East Indiaman was lost off Pevensey on Monday—cargo, coffee, sujar, and indigo, crew (except one casualty) saved. Parts of the coasts of Devonshire and of South Wales are strewed with wrecks. On Sunday the French war steamer, the Papin, was lost, with one-hlllf of the nersons on board. A disastrous and total wreck took place on the rocks in Ce- maes bay, on the north-east coast of Anglesey, witnessed by more than 2000 persons, who had been attracted by the heavy firing of the signal guns of the unfortunate vessel. Stie was barque-rigged, about 400 tons burthen, and called the Frank- land, Capt. E. C. Frind, master, laden with hides, sugar, cot- ton, and other merchandise, and was lost within a few hours' sail from her destination—Liverpool, after a favourable pas- sage from Bahia. The ship was shivered to atoms against the cliffs. It is reported that the amount of the loss of the bhip and cargo will exceed f 20,000.

POSITION OF THE GOVERNMENT. THERE was no hesitation amongst the Peel Ministry in returning to office and the only authentic alteration is the total retirement of Lord Stanley, and the substitution, in his office, (the Colonial Secretaryship) of Mr. W. E. Gladstone, -a decided change for the better. Their first act was to summon Parliament for the 22nd of this month and though this is somewhat earlier tharr usual, there is no reason, from the character of the imen, to infer that the commerce of the country will be at once freed from the depressing effect of uncer- tainty and suspense. It appears from a published letter, written by Mr. Macaulay, that the imme- «dia!e ciuse of the ftilure of Lord John Russell's minisiry was the infirmity of Earl Grey's temper. Plain men will be apt to think that an individual wh:) can allow his temper or his personal animosities to obstruct, at such an eventful crisis, the realization of measures he professes to regard as vitally important to the country, must be defi- cient in some of the best qualities of statesmanship, and unworthy of that amount of deference which has been paid to him. The present Premier, however, has no such difficulties* A Conservative ilord sulkily retires, and a Conservative Premier at once puts a more practicable commoner into his place. He is not obstructed by the circumstance but, unobstructed, so much the greater is his responsibility. The Standard, on his return to power, boasted that he would propose nothing but what could immediately be carried through Parlia- ment. Let this pompous assertion be realized in action what he means to do let him do quickly the Doctor has been again called in, and the case is urgent. It has been intimated by the Morning Post that the ministerial measure will be a present :tixed duty of ten shillings, to decline one shilling a year to five shillings, and there to remain. J Ills is quite as much as we expect, or even more. We should rather have looked for a modification of the sliding scalfe, which would have been more con- sistent with the declarations ot ministers against a fixed duty,—though that objection alone would not much weigh with such men. We do not believe, indeed, that their plan is really known. We doubt that the precise nature of the concession to justice, and the public wants and wishes, is decided upon, or that it will be until the meeting of Parliament. Sir Robert is a waiter on Providence. Because the weather is mild because there are yet some few sound potatoes and because bread does not continue to rise so rapidly as it has done, there will be no lack of arguing that any great change is unnecessary. The obvious fact that scarcity must be most felt in the spring and summer, and ought now to be provided against, will be wilfully kept out of sight. With such views, then, we may appropriately quote the common-sense words of the shrewd writer, who chooses to subscribe hiimelf A Norwich Weaver Boy —" Whatever else may have been the occupation of those who govern, or who might, could, or should govern the country, they have hitherto done nothing for you. The precious weeks of preparation for encountering the coming fcvil, have been wasted in squabbles, 01 which we know little more than the nothingness of their result. One day we have been told of the obstinacy of this great man, and the next day cf the crotchettiness of that great man and still the ports remain close, and the Parliament not assembled. People of England, you are trifled with, egregiously trifled with. You might have been helped, and you are not helped. All the explanations in the world cannot explain away that fact. Time is lost, and the work of the time is not done. The strength of your determination is not recognized. You must speak out plainer and louder."
PROTECTION UPHELD FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES. PROTECTION, in Parliament, is always defended on the ground of its being essential to the welfare of the farmers and laborers. But the real motives are very different from the one assigned, and amongst them is the upholding of great political power. One of the most approved of the corres- pondents of the Morning Post, (one of that class to wiom large type is assigned,) openly avows it. Having assumed that none but capitalists could grow corn to a profit, with free trade, and that such would not occupy without long leases, he says :— The long-lease system to which capitalists are assumed to be parties as occupiers, would involve, as a matter of course, the utter extinction of that political influence which has, for ages, attached to the territorial aristocracy of England. Landowners might, under such a system of long leases, remain masters of their own votes but over the votes of the occupiers of land they would retain not the slightest measure of control This is letting the cat out of the bag with a vengeance; here is, indeed, a revelation for free-born Englishmen," -rights over the votes of the occupiers 0 of land not a doubt of it Now this is a candid and above- ooard declaration let it be conned over by those good men for whose benefit the farmers' friends blandly declare that protection is upheld.
THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE; THl^Iengthy document—which took us some time to condense in our last-presents two features of especial interest to this country-the President's views on Oregon, and on Commericial Regulations. As to the first, he expresses invincible repug- nance to the boundary line proposed by the British government: and, since that government will not aaree to the United States line, he recommends that Congress should claim the whole-should give twelve months' notice, according to treaty, of the termination of the joint occupancy, and should prepare to support its position by arms: All this is warlike enough. Yet we have not much apprehension of the mischief of a war being really incurred. Wild as are the population of the States on such subjects, and much as there is of the old leaven remaining in our own country, we have confidence in the restraining effect of the weighty interests opposed to such a step-interests, too, which will be strengthened, as Free Trade progresses in either country. On the latter important question, the President justifies the hopes entertained of him. Nor does he wish merely to avow the theory, without carry- ing it out, for he says, The attention of Congress is invited to the importance of making suitable modifications and reductions of the rates of duty imposed by our present tariff laws." Then as to the principle on which the alterations ] should be made, he remarks, The object of im- posing duties on imports, should be to raise revenue to pay the necessary expenses of government." Cautioning them against such rates of duty as will diminish the amount raised, he says there be deviations from equal rates in favour of < shii articles of necessity as are in general use,f especially such as are consumed by the labo#! and the poor." But that. with these exceptM Arj there should be no distinction, any protectif Wll! which may arise, being purely incidental, and bej equal to all; for he say», To ftiake the tas for power an actual benefit to one class, necess&l] ^3 increases the burden of others beyond their pi ^gc portion, and would be manifestly unjust. Woi Vfi that this righteous doctrine were generally reed am nised in royal speeches The President proceeds to show that the ta# onE in force, violates these principles, injuring consitty ag< ably the industrial classes; and concludes byj Apf commending a system of ad valorem duties, # is < revenue only. It is especially gratifying to hear the annuncii tion of such sentiments at the present time, taM th* in connection, too, with the growing strength of H cel Western States in the American Legislatujt i0l; because it will furnish a reply to the argument, tW ap the States will not meet concessions we may maM and, it will also, if "our Government proceed j of similar principles, promote the immediate reali4 and, it will also, if "our Government proceed of similar principles, promote the immediate reali. tOt a c tion of those benefits to commerce, which^ if ferent opinions were prevalent in the States, M an be much more remote, though ultimately certain* JP "*■f pu
PATRONAGE OF THE ARTS. } ce THIS country has long had but a sotry reputat»4 of for its patronage of the Fine Arts at least so ff M as respects those classes who have the means th making that patronage substantial. When Fine Arts Commission" was appointed, soil* great change for the better was expected but tb«i « expectation has not been realized. In sever* j* particulars this commis^on has fallen short of E standard to which, in its proceedings, it ought if 91 have attained. And now a publication has takeq place of facts relating to its treatment of Artisttf L which are anything but cieditable to it. Thrflf exhibitions of an experimental kind have taM bi place in Westminster Hall, by invitation of 111 Commissioners. On the first occasion, in 18446, 137 Artists sent in their productions. In 18441 Cartoons and Frescos were executed by 61 ArtistH c, besides what was done by Sculptors. In the prese tl year 37 Painters and 29 Sculptors prepared for tb J exhibition. 2! In bare justice, none of these parties have 1 fr ligitimate claim (except those to whom the premium were awarded, and who have received them,) fo r< the labour and loss of time which they incurred! 1t since they voluLtarily took the ri. of these disad' vantages when they entered into competition. But in matters like these, there ought to be somethiud ii more than barely meeting the requirements 0 justice. A nation ought to be generous to tho of who promote its advancement in these higher it: branches. And besides this consideration, there if O. another striking feature about the case, whicb1 makes the conduct of the Commissioners more thso parsimonious,—stamping it with meanness. I ,be,v Commissioners made an exhibition of the works oCi d these Artists to the public, after they had beeo t adjudicated upon charging for admission, and « receiving- from £ 4000. to £ 5000. To the receipt' of this sum the works of all the artists, the unsuC*; cessful as well as the successful contributed. In a meniorial upon this subject, which some of them 1 addressed to the Commissioners, they stated that the expense incurred in materials and models fof i these exhibitions, besides the loss of time and con- nexion, exceeds £ 8000. They therefore requested i hat the sum received for exhibitions, after the pay i ment of the premiums, might be divided amongst them. This not unreasonable request the Commis- sioners thought proper to refuse; stating, at the j same time, something about expenses of advertising. | workmen's wages, &c. Now there can be no ob. i ] jection to the payment of the necessary expenses off the exhibitions, out of the proceeds but there must have been gross mismanagement if there be not still a considerable surplus and that surplus ought, assuredly, to be at once divided Wetween the unsuc* cessful competitors. Had this been done at first, i the public would probably not have heard of L another thing, mean and little in the extreme, viz., that of making these same unfortunate Artists pay for seeing their own pictures of this contemptible ?j proceeding the memorialists said <« There is a fj principle, founded on equity, invariably maintained j at our exhibitions viz., that every contributor shall 1 have free admission, and be supplied with the j catalogue that contains the account of his pro- ductions, w.thout charge. The Royal Commis- sioners akne have rejected this wholesome and just regulation the charge of a shilling on the paying t day, and of six-pence for the catalogue, has been exacted fioin the competitors." If the same spirit of economy were to be exer- cised throughout all the various departments of the public service, the people would be gainers to an enormous amount. But it is not the case. When some unscrupulous politician, or courtly sycophant, wants a pension, or when private claims upon in- dividuals are sought, upon some hypocritical pretence of public good, to be satisfied from the national purse, there is no such nicety about the expenditure of public money. When any protege ot men in power does any act which can be con- strued into an^ttempt to benefit the nation, there is no hesitation in giving him an ample reward. But it is a biting satire upon the boasted refinement of our age, that works of art and science-that achievements which only purify and elevate the mind, and which do not minister to the grosser passions and meaner desires, the pride, ambition, profit, or sensualism of the bestowers of substantial favors, have appended to them the smallest amount of remuneration, and are calculated for, with the most narrow and niggardly policy.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. # NEWPORT CATTLE MARKET—WEDNESDAY, DM. 31. Price per lb. to sink the offal. tt f I. s. d. Beasts. to 0 6J Sheep 0 6 0 6t Calves. 0 0 0 7 Pigs (per score) 8 6.. 9 0 The stock in our market this week proved inadequate to the demand, particularly as regards sheep. Good mattou was mueh sought after, there being a great number of purchasers from the Hills, as well as the butchers of Newport and its vicinity, who are doing a fair trade this season. Good beasts were eagerly looked for, and anything like decent beef met custo- mers at encouraging prices. There were more pigs than at recent markets, among which we noticed some of^ very supe- rior quality, belonging to Mr. Benjamin Thomas, of Pant-yr £ o» Farm, near this town, and which fetched ten shillings per score. There were also some capital pigs fedjtar Mr. William Seandred, butcher, of this town, which were defaced of to Mr. William Farr, dealer, at nearly ten pounds each. A few horses were shewn, some of which were disposed of, but the whole were of an inferior description. We are sorry that nags of a better sort are not brought weekly for sale at this market, where every accommodation is offered, and where good prices may be expected. We hope shortly to be able to announce the commencement of steam communication between this place and our fertile sister country, Ireland. This would be the im- portant means of much more regular supplies of stock for this increasing market, and would be most beneficial, both to the middle and working classes of our extensive and populous districts, where such an immense quantity of provision is daily called for. THE MILITIA.—A petition to the Queen against this most obnoxious mode of conscription, has been placed in the window of our respected townsman, Mr. Mullock, and a great disposition is evinced on the part of the inhabitants to subscribe their signatures. A press of advertisements by the last post, many of which might have been forwarded to our office on Thursday, occupy the space allotted to our report of the general annual meeting of the supporters of the Newport Dispensary, and other local articles, which are necessarily held over till our next. Advertisers would oblige us by an early transmission of their favours, as in consequence of the alteration in the post hours', and a largely increased impression, we are under the necessity of publishing at an earlier hour than heretofore. At the annual quarterly committee for the New- port district of the Independent Order of Oddfcllowship, of the Manchester Unity, held at the Parrot Hotel on Wednesday hist, P.G. Wm. Rowles, Trefdith Castle Lodge, was elected Prov.G.M. j P.G. Charles Evans, King Arthur Lodge, elected Prov. D.G.M.; and Prov. C.S. Benjamin Baker, Temple of Peace Lodge, re-elected. Thanks were voted to the retiring officers. The year 1846 has been joyously hailed in this neighbourhood. Evening belts, bands of music, the serenader'a song, and social parties, celebrated the birth of the new year. ORANGEISM IN NEWPORT.—Persons who masticate oranges in our streets, should not extend the tliding scale by placing feel in every body s ^y. Orangeism should not.be encouraged to this extent; for broken limbs-as well an broker heads—are now and then the results of falls from this cause. As prevention is better than a. cure-persone who indulge in Orangeism, in order to eschew all danger from sliding over peel-ings> should masticate both pulp and rind or, if they do not like to do so, let them take their fruit home, and divide with those in the Home Office. CHRISTMAS.—The report book kept by the police force at the Station-house, presents a few matters which some beer-house keepers and landlords of Newport, should take warning from, ere it be too late. Says one entry: Went into the > where I saw card-playing. The persons play- ing were ——— Another stated "At half-past twelve, Christmas night, found four persons drinking in the A third: Found card-playing and drinking at the house of known by the name of ——. at one o clock on Thurs- day night." These significant entries in th* blaok book" may tell tale some day or other.
