tamil Mtm. DANGEROUS ILLNESS OF MR. Sit oitF,Althou-,h in a very bad state of health, the Rev. James Shore firmly declines liberation from pri on, if purchased by payment of the costs. 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. UOGUE, M.P. for Cork, farms, in his own hands, little short of 3,000 acres. Tenants ran off to America, and, unable to find solvent bidders, the honourable gentleman farms at great cost and personal exertion to himself. For the last year his expcllditurein labour has been an average of £ 200 weekly. SEV or eight years ago, a youth named Scholick, the son of a carrier, entered the service of the Rev. Dr. Stonard, rector of. Aldingham, as footman. His conduct was so good that he was elevated to the rank of companion to his aged master. His ji.u'ents were amply provided for. As years rolled on, the young man, who devoted himself to study and to the re- lying of his benefactor's kindness by affectionate attention, l>e-ame so great a favourite, that Dr. Stonard, who died last winter, left him a bequest of £ 30,00 ), a reversion to £ 1.000 a-year, a m.uision, a valuable library, and other pro- perty. A snowEii of black rain fell at Abbeyleix, Carlow, Kilkenny, aal Achy, at six o'clock on the evening of the 14th April; aui has been described by Professor Barker to the Dublin Royal .}"i.ty. 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.

SUICIDS IN A CAMBRIDGE COLLEGE. — On Wednesday an inquest was held in Clare Hall, Cambridge, concerning the death of Edward Haynnn, a sizar, who on the previous day was found dead in his room, his throat being dreadfully cut and jugged. On his desk was a sheet of paper, stained with blood, anci bearing the words in deceased's writing, Good bye lather. Thank you, dear Henry for—Letters were then put in, showing that the deceased suffered great unhappiness from some religious delusions. T. M. Nixon said:—I was a friend of the deceased. In the middle of last week I went to his rooms. He said ha w is very unhappy, that ha had com- mitted a great crime, and wanted some one to comfort him. He then said he had been guilty of gluttony the day before, and that he had smoked a cigar overnight in his rooms, for the first time. I tried to laugh the matter off, and deceased said he wanted to be comforted and not laughed at. I could not per- th-a ule him th. t he had not committed a serious offence, and by his desire we read the Church prayers together, and some passages wf Scripture. He seemed better..Verdict, "TeonpJrary In- sanity." Mr. Hayman was a young man of great promise. He catered Clare Hail in 1317 as .Grecian from Christ's Hospital. He w is the son vf a gentleman in Somersetshire, and was about twenty-one. MK. HCDSON'S BROTHER-IN-LAW DROWNED.—No little sen- sntion was caused -among the inh tbitants of York, on Wednes- day morning, as the news spread through the city, that Mr. Nicholson, brother-in-law, and formerly co-partner in the drapery business of Mr. G.

SKIZURB FOI CHURCH-RATES IN LEAMINGTON.—On Saturday weuk, May 5th, the usually -quiet and aristocratic town of royal Leamington was thrown into a state of excitement by the an- nouncement, that at three o'clock, p.m., there would beasaleatthe Town-hall,-of goods seized tor Church-rates, which had been taken hy force from two respectable tradesmen, Mr. James Smeeton, wholesale grocer, and Mr. John Puttick, draper and mercer. No small degree of amusement Wt created by the crier announcing round the town the following !,ill Oh yes oh yes oil yes This is to give notice, that a table and some cheese, seized for Church-rates, will be sold this afternoon, by W. Russell, at the Town-hall, at three o'clock. All good Churchmen are parti- cularly requested to attend," By the time appoint d, a large num- ber of persons were present, principally respectable tradesmen; and when the auctioneer, W, Russell, appeared, he was greeted 1vith rounds of groans, which continue! at intervals, during the whole of the proceedings. This, mingled with the jeers, questions,and remarks made during the sale, would prevent any respectable man ■ from undertaking such, a After the sale, on the auctioneer retiring, he was again assailed- by a stiil louder volley of if loans, and thus made his exit, when thJ Rev. H.

DREADFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION…
DREADFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION AND LOSS OF LIVES AT ABERDARE. On Monday morning last, a fearful explosion of fire-damp, or gas, occurred at Messrs Nixon and Co's. colliery, Werfa, near Aberdare, by which twelve men were dreadfully burnt' two of whom have already died, and five others are lyin°- in a dangerous state. Various rumours were afloat during thefearly part of the week as to the cause of the disaster, and considera- ble interest was felt in the neighbourhood. On Wednesday afternoon at half-past two o'clock, an inquest was held at the Black Lion Inn, Aberdare, before John Morgan, Esq., deputy-coroner, and a respectable jury, on the bodies of two of the unfortunate sufferers, named Win. Jones, aged twenty, and David Clements, aged twenty-five, both single men. The jury having been sworn, Mr. David Williams, Ynys- cynon colliery, being foreman, the deputy-coroner and jury went to view the bodies, and after their return proceeded with the examination of the witnesses. The first witness examined was Phillip Lewis, whose evidence was taken at his father's house, where he lay in a dangerous state from the effects of the explosion. He said that he felt much pain in his head and hands. He was proceeding up the "heading" in which he worked, with a Davy or safety lamp in his hand, to see if his "stall" was in a fit state to work in when the explosion took place. There- were three or four men following him at a distance of about four yards, with naked candles in their hands. They were then about sixty yards from the bottom of the pit, or level. There are altogether twelve stalls in the heading, and only three above where the explosion took place. John Gwillyin (whose head was bandaged) then gave the following evidence:—Am a collier, working in the Werfa col- liery was the first who entered the heading on Monday morn- ing it was between seveu and eight o'clock deceased came in sc soon after me, as well as all the other men the haullier and doorkeeper came in last; I was in twenty minutes or half-an- hour before the explosion took place; there is a safety-lamp belonging to the heading I did not use it for my stall, because I believed there was plenty of air David Lewis, a lad of from fifteen to twenty, took the lamp and went up the -.head,ii-ig; after he returned, he said that all was safe the stall in which David Lewis works is about twenty-five yards from the bottom of the heading. (Several jurors here suggested that the evidence of the witness should be taken in Welsh. The coroner assented, and Mr. David Williams acted as interpreter.) Phillip Lewis, brother of David Lewis, then took the lamp, and asked deceased to accompany him to his work, at the upper end of the heading. The haullier then passed up, and while I was changing my dress for work the explosion took place don't know from whose candle it occurred did not see deceased until he was carried home on a plank. In answer to a juror (Rev. Thomas Price), the witness said There is no fireman employed in the colliery. In my opinion the ventilation in the pit was such that every man was agreea- ble to work in it; we were as safe as in any other place. (Mr. Price here put the question again, relative to the ventilation, to which the witness gave indirect and evasive answers, of which Mr. Price and other jurats complained.) Believe there is not the same strength of air as in other pits. There is no flue it could not therefore be expected to be so good. A flue is now in course of construction. (Here the Rev. John Griffith, vicar said that Mr. Price was unfair in the mode he put the questions to the witness. The coroner ruled that Mr. Price was i-it order, and the question was again put.) Taking everything into consideration it is as good as any other pit. If the flue was in use, the pit would be as safe as yours (addressing the interpre- ter). Th3 explosion yesterday week occurred in consequence of the men going too far into a place where they were told not to go. There is a flue, but not like the one we intend to have when it is completed the ventilation will be better. Mr. Nixon then put several questions to the witness, who re- plied as follows: Am aware the overseer told the men that morn- ing to examine the headings carefully before they went to work There is a lamp for every heading. Believe if the ordinary precaution had been taken the accident would not have occurred. When I was at the top of the heading, on Saturday, I considered the men working there were perfectly safe, and that the ventilation was sufficiently good. Have not lost any work for want of air, neither has any other collier that I am aware of. I am of opinion that, with the current of air passing my stall, there would be no danger in any part of the work. Believe the accident occurred in consequence of the no-licence of the workmen themselves. The agent (Mr. Mathew Mills) generally went down himself, but circumstances prevented his being present that morning. A man of the works, showing the place in which the accident occurred, was placed on the tabic, and examined by the coro- ner and jury. John Williams was next examined: I am a collier, working in heading No. 4, next to the one in which the explosion took place. Was at work at the time. There was no fire in my heading. Believe the work is as well ventilated as any in the valley. As there is no flue, it cannot be expected to be as good as it will be after it is put up. 0 By Mr. Nixon Have worked in several other collieries, Rhymncy, Pontaberpergwm, Dowdais, Ebhw Vale, Sirhowyi Tredegar, and Aberdare Valley, in which the ventilation was not better than at the Werfa works. The air was as good that morning as I ever found it. Believe that with ordinary pre- caution the accident would not have happened, nor the explo- sion of yesterday week. John" Lewis examined: Am a collier in the Werfa works. Was in my stall when the accident occurred. Saw deceased before the explosion took place. He was going up to wards John Gwillym's stall. I then entered my own stall, and immediately the explosion took place, by the force of which I fell down, but was not burnt. Have no idea how it took place. Have only worked but a short time as a collier I am not, therefore, much acquainted with such things. Am father of Phillip Lewis, who is now dangerously ill. In answer to Mr. Nixon, witness stated that as far as he un- derstood, there was plenty of air in the heading. The deputy-coroner then summed up, and said it appeared to him that the accident was the result of a misfortune, and that if the ordinary precautions had been observed by the workmen it would not have occurred. The colliery proprietors were not culpable, and the evidence of the several witnesses went to support that opinion. After a few general observations,die re- quested the jury to consider their verdict. The-jury then, retired, and in a short time returned a verdict of "ACCIDENTAL DEATH, occasioned by an explosion of foul air;" accompanied with a recommendation to the proprietors of the colliery to employ a fire man.
IXQUEST ON DAVID CLEMENTS.
IXQUEST ON DAVID CLEMENTS. The same witnesses were then examined relative to the death elf David Clements, another of the sufferers, whose evidence was precisely the same as that given on the previous .inquest, with the addition of a few particulars. The three witnesses stated that no pe: WI had instructed them as to the nature of the evidence they were to give. John Lewis said that he met David Ctements and his son coming down the heading after the explosion took place. They were on lire. He assisted them to put it out. They came in contact with the horse which was much burnt, ft kicked vioientty. The horse kicked witness and deceased severely. Witness was of opinion, however, that deceased did not die in consequence of the kick, but from the effects of the fire. Tlenry Mathews deposed Saw deceased coming out of the pit. Thought his death was occasioned by the kick of the horse, of the r effects of which he several times complained. He was not severely burnt. Mr. Nixon then put it to the workmen who were in the room and standing about -the door whether or not they believed sthe evi- dence of the several witnesses to be correct. Several answered, yes," and all seemed of the same opinion. The deputy-coroner then summed up, and the jury immediately returned the same verdict as in the previous case. The inquest closed at ten o'clock. The names of the men who are lying dangerously ill are Wil- liam Llovd, aged 20, single; Thomas Jones, aged 20, sinale Richard Wathan, married; a son of Richard Watnan, aged 20; and Phillip Lewi". aged 20.

Scotch pig-iron has again receded, and sales have been made during the week at 44s. 6d., and 43s. 6d. for mixed No., cash, in 10 days, and No. 1 Gartsherrie, 4os. 6d. Spelter, dull of sale. In other metals no alteration. THE IRON TRADE.—BIRMINGHAM, MONDAY.—The price of iron, with little inclination to drop, remains the same as last quarter's quotations..The stocks of dealers, owing to the time they have waited in expectation of a reduction of price, are becom- ing small. It is stated that the ironmasters are now manufacturing to excess but there appears to be "ittle doubt that, from necessity, a demand must shortly occur which will relieve them from any apparent overmake. The fact that the wages of workmen in all departments have been advanced is a strong proof of the confidence entertained of the stability of present rates.
LONDON CORN EXCHANGE.~
LONDON CORN EXCHANGE. MONDAY.—The foreign imports were again extensive, -viz., 19,908 quarters of wheat, 7,285 ditto of barley, 29,552 ditto o'f oats' 22 ditto of rye. 1,023 ditto of beans, 913 ditto of peas, 56 ditto of tares, 480 ditto of linseed, 400 ditto of Indian corn, 2,573 sacks and 1,010 barrels of flour. A very limited supply of wheat reached us this morning from Essex, Kent, and Cambridgeshire. The general condition of the wheat was good. In the middling and out of con- dition sorts only a limited business was passing, yet the importers would not soil, except at very full prices. No English barley on ofror, and the supply of foreign was far from extensive malting parcels were held at full rates of currency; grinding and distilling sorts were neglected. The show of malt was again trifling, and prices were with difficulty supported. The quantity of foreign oats on sale was good; very few of home growth were offering On the whole, a fair business was doing in this grain, at late rates. Both beans and peas, the supply of which were small, sold at full prices. Indian corn and meal were quite as dear. Flour moved off slowly. In the quotations, however, we have no further change to report. WàEAT 8. 8.

Although the attendance of buyers was small, the demand for that grain was firm, at prices fully equal to those paid on Monday. The imports of foreign wheat this week have been only 7,248 quarters, but a large fleet of corn-ships is working up the Channel from the Black Sea. Most descrsptions ruled steady, and late rates were well supported in every instance. The supply of barley was again limited, but we have no change to notice in orices. So little business was trans- acted in malt that the currencics were almost nominal. Oats, beans, peas, and Indian corn were quite as dear. The flour trade was tolerably firm.
