VUANCE. SLTPK^SSIOX OF THE CLVBS.—-The Assembly, on Satur- day evening, brought to a close the debate of-the law on the C'ubs, which was finally adapted. The third and conclu- sive reading will take place after five dear days. By this law clubs arc interdicted, but public meetings for the discus- sion of political subjects which have not the character im- puted to clubs by the present law will be permitted. In consequence of the strong feelings of disappointment mani- fested by the extreme Republicans, military precautious have been taken against disturbance. The modifications are such as will allow of occasional public meetings for political purposes, and of permanent societies duly registered, holding periodical meetings restricted to members, and open to the visits of the police. It seems to be anticipated that the clubs will be able to evade the measure. PUKi'Ait.vTioN'fl FOR THE ELECTION'S.—The arrival in Paris of M. Guixot is announced. He proposes, it is said, to offer himself for Calvados; but the Club of the Hue de Poitiers, alius M. T'liers, has resolved that- no member of the hIt Cabinet of Louis Philippe shall have its countenance. The cholera has become formidable in Paris. L.VMARTIXE AT EOUUGE.S.—The judicial proceedings at Bourges were resumed on Thursday at the usual hour. The tribunes were much crowded, and a considerable number of ladies were present. Anxiety to see M. de Lamartine, who was to be examined, was the cause assigned lor their pre- sence. During the examination of the first witness a huis- sier announced to the court that M. de Lamartine had arrived, and awaited the President's orders. In a few mi- nutes he appeared in court, and his presence seemed to create a sensation in the galleries. He'deposed to }V'fnit took place on the loth. He declared his belief that the manifestation in favour of Poland was only a pretext to invade the As- sembly. He was certain, from diplomatic correspondence he received, that foreign emissaries had been employed, and that foreign agents had come to Paris from Cracow for the purpose. He did not say that there was a complot, in the exact sense of the word, but there- was no doubt that an attack had been meditated against the Assembly, which only failed in consequence of the clubs being jealous of each other, and in consequence of each wishing to be the leader. Tin; CHOLERA IN PARIS.—On Saturday, it carried off .M. lllin de Boudon, a Legitimist, representative, whose name is one of those affixed to the manifesto of the Rue de Poitiers, and who sat for thirty years in the Chamber of Deputies. M. Gustavo do Beaumont, late Ambassador at this court, is dangerously ill of the same complaint. Louis PHILIPPICS RACING STUD.—The whole of Louis Philippe's magnificent stud, comprising about sixty brood mares and entire horses, is about to be sold by public auction at Versailles. The day of sale is fixed for the 2nd of April, and very considerable interest has been excited on both sides of the Channel by the announcement. The horses to be sold include draughts from the stables at Versailles, Mcudon and St. Cloud, and among the animals are several of the purest Arabian breed. Several of them were presented to the ex- King by the Pacha of Egypt, the Imaum of Muscat, and the Bey of Tunis. The pedigrees, as set forth in the cata- logue, will be found most interesting to sporting readers. 0
GERMANY. WHO IS TO WEAR THE IMPERIAL CROWN? In the sitting of the Frankfort Parliament of the 21st inst., the adjourned debate on M. Welcker's motion to ap- point the King of Prussia hereditary Emperor of Germany was continued and after MM. Homer and Schuler had addressed the House in opposition to M. Welcker's motion, the House divided on the amendment proposed by the minority of the committee, viz., that the House should pass from M. Welcker's motion and proceed to the order of the day; and the numbers were found to be—for the amend- ment, 207 against it, 277. The House divided next on the motion of the Committee in favour of M. Welcker's proposal, and this motion was rejected by a majority of 30 votes, the numbers being—-for the motion, 252 against it, 282. The House received this result at first with silence, which was, however, soon broken by expressions of triumph and disap- pointment from the adverse parties and the latter part of this all-important debate, which was to decide the weal and woe of the vast German country, was stormy be- yond all expression. This result was so unexpected, that Ministers themselves, who ought to have been in a condition to calculate exactly, were taken by surprise. They had given orders to load the cannons and make ready for the peal of bells, which were to make the air vibrate with Imperial joy. M. Von Gageni and all the Ministers, the Secretaries of State included, tendered their resignations to the Vicar of the Empire; and his Imperial Highness, after maturely considering the reasons assigned, has accepted them. At a late hour of the evening of the 22nd, no member of the As- sembly had been sent for by the Archduke. An analysis of the division shows that 115 voted against Mr. Welcker's motion, and not one in its favour. There was a large influx of Austrian members who had not previously attended in their places. Since the 4th and 7th of March (says the C'olor/nc Gazette), the delegation of every Austrian member to the Assembly has been cancelled and more than this, nothing but an utter want of shame could have en- abled some hundred men to decide respecting our fato and future, who have it not in their power to give the slightest guarantee for any counterpoising scrvtCeOll thefe" part."
ITALY. RE-COMMENCEMENT OF HOSTILITIES. The following is the position of the armies by the latest accounts:—Four divisions of the Piedmontese" army had passed the Tieino at Novarra, 011 the evening of the 20th. On the 21st, a body of Austrian troops passed the Tieino at Yigevano, and after a slight resistance, having received re- inforcements. pushed forward to Mortara. It thus got close to the division commanded by the King. It is thought prohabls that the Piedmontese troops have recrossed the Tieino, and that the battle will be fought in the plains of Verceiii. The French expedition is said to be ready to sail the moment the Austrians shall set their foot 011 the Ponti- fical territory. It consists of 12,000 men. The latest accounts from Turin state that an Austrian corps crossed the Tieino at Vigevano on the 21st, where it experienced some resistance, but having received reinforce- ments, the Austrian General moved forward to Mortara. It was supposed that Charles Albert would in consequence recross the Tieino, and that a battle would be fought in the plains of Verceiii. A bulletin had been published at Turin by the Minister of the Interior, announcing the passage of, ife Tieino and the march of the Piedmolltcsc army into Lombardy. The head-quarters of the King were at Trccate, a small town on the Piedmontese bank of the Tieino, close to the, road lead- ing from Novarra to Milan. It was by the bridge upon this n road, leading to Buffaloru, that the army crossed the river. When the division approached the bridge, the King himself e5 advanced suddenly to its head, and was the first man to cross. The passage was unopposed, the Austrians having retired from that point. The road to Milan was reported to have been crowded with the Austrians and their baggage and munitions in full retreat. Advices had been received from Voghera of an attack made by the Austrians upon the Piedmontese, who defended the bridge of Mezzana-Corte, near Pavia. The Austrians were repulsed, afier which the Piedmontese partially de- stroyed the bridge. This news was received by telegraph n n from Alexandria on the 21st. The Jli/'ai Gazette publishes two proclamations of Ha-, dctzki, dated the 17th, one addressed to the inhabitants ot Milan, the other to those of the Lombardo-Venetian king- dom at large. In the former, lvadetzki informs the Milanese that he leaves the city to carry the war upon the enemy's territory; but to the inhabitants, he in- forms them that lie leaves a sufficient garrison and a well provided citadel. He hopes that Milan will remain quiet, a second army being ready to fight for the rights of his So- vereign. They have, lie says, already felt the consequences of rebellion, but let them beware of a second attempt; the punishment would not fail to follow speedily and unrelent- ingly for lie is strong enough to crush every internal cnem^, and to fight the external one.' The second proclamation is nearly of the same tenor. General Haynuu has burnt the small town of Lorco, at the mouth of the Adige, containing about 3,500 inhahitan ts, on pretence of their having aided deserters to reach Venice in their boats.
NAPLES AND SICILY. Letters from Naples, of the 10th instant, say, the ultima- tum has been burned in the streets and public places of Palermo. The Hellespont, which left Palermo on the 15th, brought to Marseilles the intelligence of the definite rupture of the negotiations opened between the Sicilian Government and the French and English admirals. Preparations were making for a vigorous resistance to the troops of Ferdinand. At the sitting of the chamber on the 9th, a levy en masse of all the citizeiis capable of bearing arms was ordered. The French and English admirals with their suites were present. The greatest enthusiasm was reported to prevail among the population.
HOME. The Pope remains at Gaeta, and the Duke of Tuscany at Mola da Gaeta. The Catholic Powers, France included, have agreed on a Congress for the restoration of the Pope being held at Naples but Austria is protesting against the long delay a Congress must entail, and soliciting that, in concert with France, she may be permitted to settle the affair in a decided manner. The new Republic goes on its way rejoicing; and, with a vigorous and united Cabinet, the unanimous support of the National Assembly, and the steady adhesion of all the pro- vincial towns, Government holds its onward course reckless of diplomacy, or foreign intrigue, or pious calumny.
TURKEY. The Deutsche Ailgemeine Zeitung contains some state- ments respecting the differences between the Sublime Porte and the Russian Cabinet. We learn from them that the Sultan held a Cabinet Council on the 2ncl instant, at which the Ambassadors of England, France, and Austria were pre- sent, and in which the Austrian Ambassador manifested much zeal in behalf of the Russian demands. A term of forty days has been given to the Sultan to consider whether or not he will allow the Russian fleet to pass through the Black Sea to Naples. The correspondent of the Deutsche Ailge- meine Zeitung presumes that the permission will be given, and that the Sultan will be induced to agree to the continued occupation of the Danubian principalities by the Russian troops.
HUNGARY. Jellachich sustained a defeat on the 10th. He tried to drive the Magyars from Zolnok, but he was driven back with considerable loss, both of men and guns. Disturbances are commencing in Gallicia and Bohemia, as well as among the Servians. In Agram, Carlowits, Prague, and other places where the Slavonian and Czech inhabitants were warm partisans of the imperial cause, much coolness prevails. In Agram the com- mittee of the Diet has declared that that Diet is alone com- petent to decide on the union with Austria, and is resolved to urge the Ban of Croatia to convoke it as speedily as pos- sible. The same committee has also resolved to protest against the separation of the so-called military frontiers from Croatia. The promulgation of the new constitution will be a matter of no slight difficulty. The Czech press denounces indignantly the Ministry for the coup-iVetat which dissolved the Diet at Kremsier. All this is favourable for the cause of the Magyars, the hostility between whom and the inhabitants of the former annexce partes of Hungary is (according to all accounts) daily on the decrease.
IRELAND. THE PAPAL RATE IN AID.—The Freeman's Journal of Monday announces with a shout of exultation that the pa- rochial collections for the Pope in the diocese of Meath amounted to £1,266 2s. 9d. It is roughly estimated that the gross (very gross) total of this uncalled-for rate in aid will yield in Ireland from X25,000 to £ 30,000. A lady (Mrs. Bryan, of Kilkenny) presented her parish priest with a £100 note, to be devoted towards the relief of Pius IX.'s pecuniary embarrassments. We are truly a wonderful people when once driven to our own resources. It was scarcely within the range of probability that Parliament would, for the ask- ing, come down" with a grant for the support of his Iloli- ness, otherwise no doubt the attempt would have been made. Hence there was nothing for it but to trust in "ourselves alone," and the result is a golden tribute, equal in value to one half of the grant which the English Treasury means to allot for the secondary purpose of rescuing certain dis- tricts from the horrors of starvation.—Times. THE CHOLERA IN LIMERICK.—We are deeply concerned to learn, by a letter from a private correspondent, that the cholera has appeared at Limerick, where it is making awful ravages." The letter expresses surprise that no notice of the fact has been taken by the English journals. Writing from Limerick, on the 22nd instant, our correspondent says: —" The fearful scourge first visited this city last MOlldaythre0 weeks. Since then, there have been at least, from all the in- formation I have gathered, upwards of 2,000 cases. I am told, on the authority of a medical practitioner, that for some days past, not fewer than a hundred deaths from it have occurred daily. I know of two cases in which corpses re- mained unburied for eight-and-forty hours, because coffins could not be procured fast ciiough.-Pati-iot. THE WRECK OF THE LONDONDERRY STEAMER.—After a trial which occupied two days at the Deny Assizes, Captain Johnston and the mates of the ill-fated Londonderry steamer were acquitted of "the assault of Hannah Brennan and others, and of having caused her death by placing her and others in a place on board the Londonderry steamer, where they had not a sufficiency of air to preserve life; and that, while there, the said traversers neglected to pay her and others proper attention, and had thereby caused the death of the said Hannah Brennan." HARVEST PROSPECTS.—-The Meath Ilerald says, We have seldom witnessed a spring season wherein- farming operations-were so far advanced, nor one in which more grain has been sown than in that of the present." EXECUTION OF THREE MURDERERS.—The lioscommon Messenger, of Wednesday, contains the following appalling statement:—"This day, Commons, convicted of the murder of Major Mahon, and the two Scallys, husband and wife, for the murder of Alicia Brennan, were executed in front of our county gaol. Commons mounted the fatal scaffold with firmness, and was in a few moments in eternity. Scally was very weak, and had to be supported. He apparently suffered little; but then a scene most horrible to relate ensued. When the female Scally was about being executed, when the trap was let go, her leg caught in it. The unfortunate woman cried out, so o» to be Ryard. by those at a consider- able distance, I Oli, oh, l am caught in tliebars r till the hangman pushed her off and put an end to her sufferings. This scene, though of short duration, was indescribably re- volting. and horrible to witness." IN a case at the Clonmel assizes, John Ryan, a witness, described himself as a hereditary fiddler. SINCE the days of the Volunteers," asserts the Newry Ex- aminer, there has been no agitation in the north of Ire- land equal in importance, or at all approaching in enthu- siasm, to that provoked by the rate in aid."
THK MOTHBR AND THE CHILD.—Some mothers make, it a practice to go themselves to fetch the candle when the children are in bed; and then if wanted, they stay a few minutes, and hear any confessions or difficulties, and receive any disclosures of which the little mind may wish to disWurthen itself before the hour of sleep. Whether then, or at another time, it is well worth pondering what a few minutes of serious consultation may do in enlightening and rousing or calming the conscience— in rectifying and cherishing the moral life. It may be owing to such moment!; as these that humiliation is raised into humi- lity, apathy into moral enterprise, pride into awe, and scornful blame into Christian pity. Happy is the mother who can use such moments as she ouglit.lfisv Martineau. A FIELD voit ENTKHPIUSF,.—There is no field 80 favourable for a man of enterprise and capital as the Australian colonies. For the man of health with a good constitution, whose strons arms are his only capital, there is no other pert of the world equal to it. A DISAPPOINTMENT.—A Puseyite clergyman at Bideford dis- appointed two wedding parties, two brides and two men, and four families with all their friends, byjrefusing to perform the marriage service on Ash Wednesday, after all arrangements had been completed.—Western Times.
THE REV. JAMES SHORE. Many of our readers are doubtless curious to know the origin and history of Mr. Shore's persecution. We give the n el following extract from the Rev. Thomas Binney's speech ag Exeter Hall :— Mr. Shore is a deacon and priest of the Church of lng" land. He proceeded to priestly orders in 1829. He was curate of the parish of Berry Pomeroy, in the Archdeaconry of Totnes, the diocese of Exeter, and the province of Canter bury. He was curate of this parish, under the Rev. Mr. Edwards, the vicar, from the time lie became a priest in 1829, when he was ordained by the predecessor of the pre- sent Bishop, Henry, who came into the see in 1830. Mr. Shore continued the curate of this parish to 1832, when the Duke of Somerset built a chapel at Bridgetown, in the same parish, which was licensed for Episcopalian worship, but was not consecrated. When the chapel in which Mr. Shore ministered was built, Mr. Edwards, the vicar, gave Mr. Shore the nomination, the Bishop licensed it, and ho entered upon his duties. In 1831 the vicar died, and Mr. Brown succeeded him. No fresh, nomination was required, Alr. Shore was not informed that he ought 10 be nominated again, the Bishop did not apprise him by any official act, that he continued him in the chapel; but one incumbent died, rfi x another succeeded him, and' Mr. Shore retained his position for nine years afterwards. In 1813, Mr. Brown exchanged livings with Mr. Cousens. When Mr. Cousens was ex- pected to come into the vicarage, the Bishop wrote to Mr. Shore to state what he had not done before, namely, that ho should not continue him as minister of the chapel. Mr. Shore replied, that he should attend to the suggestion. Mr. Cousens arrived on Saturday, the 14th October, and on tho following Monday morning .Alt'. Kliorc "Waltod -upon IrtTI 1 and asked for the nomination. Mr. Shore, speaking of it, said :—" Mr. Cousens frankly told me that the matter was out of his hands, and he had engaged with the Bishop not to give me the nomination. He also told me, and I quote these words from a letter which I wrote to the Bishop, and which the Bishop has not denied that I wrote to him, Mr. Cousens told me that your lordship thought fit to communi- cate to him such an impression respecting me, that he said it was utterly impossible for him as an honest man, with any regard to his character, to nominate me. If he did so, it would only make him ridiculous and contemptible, as your lordship would not license him That was the privarc understanding between the Bishop and Mr. Cousens, while 0 he was writing to Mr. Shore to tell him to get a nomination n from -Air. Cousens. This, then," says Mr. Shore, was my position. I have two letters from the Bishop urging me to n get the nomination, and yet the Bishop knew that Mr. Cousens had engaged with him not to give it me." But stop, that is not all, Mr. Shore adds, On the very day after I applied to Mr. Cousens, I had a letter from the Bishop in the following \vol'ds Having in vain waited in expectation of hearing from Mr. Cousens, that he had determined to give you a nomination, I am bound to consider you as not having his sanction for officiating in the parish of Berry Pomeroy therefore, I am also bound to forbid you continuing to per- form any clerical offices within my diocese. The Bishop does not wait to hear from Mr. Cousens the result of an interview with Mr. Shore; he does not wait to hear from Mr. Shore the result of that interview. Mr. Cousens only came into his residence on the Saturday; Mr. Shore called upon him on the Monday; and the next morning (Tuesday), the Bishop, having waited so long in expectation of a nomi- nation, which he knew Mr. Cousens would not give, he writes to Mr. Shore, withdraws his license, and sends him about his business. Mr. Shore was silent; the chapel was closed for months. There was no fresh nomination by the vicar. Why not ? Because the Duke of Somerset supported Mr. Shore as an injured man, and, under these circumstances, neither the Bishop nor the vicar could send any man in his place. From 700 to 800 people have been deprived of the. ministrations of the sanctuary, and a minister of the Gospel has been silenced for no moral offence whatever, as the Bishop himself admitted on the trial of Mr. Latimer at Exe- ter. As light entered the mind of Mr. Shore, his feelings became loosened to the institution, and on the 26th of Feb- ruary, 1844, the chapel was registered, according to law, for tx jjltiue of rrotestant -Nonconforming worakip, hy +, -r"t; of the agent of the Duke of Somerset. After the chapel had been thus registered as a Protestant place of worship, Mr. Shore preached for one or two Sundays before he qualified himself by a positive act of secession from the Church. On the 16th of March, about a fortnight after the registration n r) of the chapel, Mr. Shore went voluntarily before a magis- trate, took the oath, and signed the declaration, rendered necessary under the Toleration Act. He then stood as a sececler from the Church, and had the rights and privileges of a Nonconformist minister. Being now a Nonconformist minister in his estimation, and the chapel registered as a place for Nonconformist worship, he considered that he was a perfectly free man to do what other Dissenters did, and, therefore, he chose to use the Church prayers as is done by Mr. Sherman, Mr. Thoresby, and Mr. Sortain. He also chose to make an alteration in the prayers, especially in some particular offices, which he felt that he was at liberty to do, and which his conscience and understanding led him to do. He continued his ministrations for a month or two, and then the Bishop gave him a gentle monition, that as a clergyman he was officiating without an episcopal license, and he kindly informed him that he had appointed a Commission of six or eight clergymen, to come to Totnes, and to sit in a room, belonging to the Seven Stars, with power to call him before them to answer for a misdemeanour. Mr. Shore replied that he had nothing to do with the Bishop, nor with the Commissioners. Moreover, Mr. Shore was advised that legally he was right, and there- fore he said, that for the sake of all the clergy of England seeing and knowing the law, he would go before this com- mission but added, I will do that under protest. He did so, and the commission returned to the Bishop a reply OIl the very particular point into which they were called to inquire, namely, that there were prima facie grounds for further proceedings. He was then cited into the Court of Arches, r) and he again appeared under protest. The charges made against him by the Bishop in that court were, that, as a 0 clergyman of the Church of England, he had preached and ny 11 performed worship according to the rites and Liturgy thereof. Mr. Shore's proctor demurred to both points, stating that when Mr. Shore thus preached, lie was not a minister of the Church of England, and he did not conduct the service pre- cisely according to the Service-book; for he took the Liturgy, and made alterations therein. Mr. Shore denied that he did the act as a clergyman; to which it was replied, once a clergyman, always a clergyman. Mr. Shore was ordered to pay nil thA oostw j and he to. offend <1g;11111 by preaching in future, either in the parish of Berry Pome- roy, in the diocese of Exeter, or in the province of Canter- bury. Mr. Shore now felt that there was another tribunal to which he could resort. Mr. Shore determined to have ths matter sifted to the bottom, and carried the case to the Queen's Bench, where Lord Denman pronounced it as his opinion, that Mr. Shore could not divest himself of his character, or the Holy Orders with which he had been clothed by the authority of the Church of England when he was or- dained by one of the bishops, and when he promised canonical obedience, that he could only be released by the same authority which conferred the one, and enjoined the other- Mr. Shore then appealed to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, who said nothing, but referred the case back to the Ecclesiastical Court, just as the judge says, You must go hence to the place from whence you came;" so that be was sent down to Doctors' Commons. For doing that thtf Privy Council bring in a bill for about £ 180 for costs. Sir Herbert Jenncr Fust then gave the final decision. He was called, then and there, -to answer certain interrogatories 0 touching and concerning his soul's health, and the lawful correction and reformation of his manners and excesse- more especially for having, within the said diocese of Exeter-, offended against the laws ecclesiastical, by public reading of prayers," and so on. That is the offence charged; and the judge, in his final sentence, stated, that, should be be guilty of a repetition of this offence, it would be not only again-1 his decision, but against the authority of the Court. He added: "Though this gentleman is, at this moment, It minister of the Established Church of the land, from whose authority he cannot remove, still I do not think I am entitled to depose him from his ministry; yet I admonish Mr. Sboie
