In answer to a lette acquainting him with the decision of his committee, he observes:—" The more I reflect upon the subject of the pay- ment of the Bishop's costs, the more I am convinced of the propriety of my former determination in this matter. While, therefore, I cannot sufficiently express my thankfulness for the kindness intended, I can in no way be a party to such pay- ment." At the same time a letter reached the committee, from Mr. George Atkinson, of Torqutty, stating that having visited Mr. Shore, he found him exceedingly ill, and understood from Mrs. Shore, who is now permitted to attend him night and day, that since Saturday week he had been dangerously ill. Sir Benjamin Brodie having particularly advised Mr. Shore not to put himself under the treatment of any one for his complaint, Mr. Atkinson suggests, that the committee should immediately request Sir Benjamin to visit him. The committee, we have no doubt, have already complied with this request. It is to be hoped, that Sir Benjamin Brodie's certificate of the state of Mr. Shore's health, and of the influence of imprisonment upon him, will be forthwith transmitted to the Secretary of State.

I AST APPEARANCE OF JENNY Lixi).-The announcement that J cuny Lind's appearance last Friday evening was to be the last of her operatic performances, in lieu of the series of dramatic concerts which had been begun and discontinued, took the p-ublic by surprise, as it was generally supposed, that having t the stage, she would remain upon it, atleast during this season. Butit was not uncxpccted by those who wereaware that the fair prima donna, having terminated her engagement with Mr. Lumlev, is on the eve of entering into another of a more serious and solemn character, in which the future happi- ness of her life is involved. Last night, therefore, was con- sidered as Jenny Lind's farewell to the stage; and there was consequently such an assemblage as has not been seen in our day within the walls of her Majesty's Theatre, to do honour to thé final appearance of the" most interesting, if not the greatest artist of her class that has ever visited our shores. From the orchestra to the ceiling every inch of space was occupied. Every box contained double its usual of inmates, and many persons, who could not get further, were content to re- main in the passages and lobbies. Her Majesty and Prince Albert were present, and the audience include:i the most dis- tinguished individuals now in London. When the curtain fell Mdlle. Lind, loudly called for, came forward, led by Gardoni; the whole audience rose, and a cry, bursting from the lips of every individual present, rang through the theatre the stage was covered with ashower of bouquets, ladies striving to throw them even from distant boxes. She withrt; ew, but the accla- mations continuing, she again appeared, conducted by Belletti. She agaiL retired, and re-appeared a third time, but was now alone. She advanced with a hurried step to the front of the stage, curtsied deeply and repeatedly with an air of great agitation, and then withdrew for the last time and for ever.— Daily Sews, Ma. E. B.

Ths< rain fell over a district of 400 square miles; it was preceded by such darkness that you could not read without a candle, and by a hail storm with lightning, but no thunder. It was of the colour of ink, had a foetid odour, and a very disagreeable taste cattle turned from the pools of it with disgust; after standing some time it deposited a black i'idiment and became of a brown colour. Quantities of it were preserved in several places, and will be chemically analysed. Ax extraordinary attack has been made by a cat in a house a few miles from Moffat.
