MONSIEUR SCHERMAN begs leave most re- spectfully to return his sincere thanks to the Inhabitants of this Town and Neighbourhood, for the very liberal encouragement he has received, and should he ever revisit Merthyr, hopes that he will meet with the same kind patronage and support which has been shown to him on this occasion. From the patronage which has been so flatteringly bestowed upon him during his Visit to Cheltenham, Oxford, and other places, and the testimonies of approbation which he has universally received, he trusts that on a minute in- spection of his Stock, which he respectfully solicits, he will continue o receive the same kind support and si- milar expressions of satisfaction from the Inhabitants 1( of this Town and Neighbourhood. SCHERMAN is well known, and he pledges himself to adhere to the very same scale of prices which has so much excited the envy of the trade, and attained such an extraordinary degree of public patronage. This truly elegant Stock of Parisian, Geneva, Frank- fort, Vienna and Berlin Fancy Goods, for taste and fashion, may'safely challenge comparison with the first London and Paris tiouses but puffing not being his custom. Monsieur Scherman will feel obliged by an early visit ocular demonstration being the best proof. A great variety of Musical Clocks; Musical Boxes; Gold and Silver Watches, &c.; a magnificent assort- ment of Dresden China, with Flemish Paintings; Bracelets, Snaps, and Crosslets, in great variety; a truly splendid assortment of the best manufactured Jewellery; and other fashionable Suites; real Berlin Jewellery; Venetian and Shell Combs, in th(S..first style of fashion best Parisian Perfumery, and a great variety of other Fancy Articles, too numerous ,to men- tion, well worthy the attention of the public in general.

VERY LIBERAL!-A Dublin Paper informs us that the Earls of Leitrim and Charlemont and Lord John Russell have each subscribed 201. towards the fund for completing the Roman Catholic Cathedral at Tuam and that the Right Honourable E. Little- ton has sent 201. for the same purpose, to the Arch- bishop of Tuarn 1 Of course the Archbishop alluded to is not the Protestant Prelate we there- fore beg to congratulate the Right Honourable Secretary on the noble and liberal disregard of the provisions of an Act of Parliament. To be sure the clause in the Roman Catholic Relief Bill, prohibit- ing the assumption of the titles of the Protestant Sees, was intended to protect the Established Church from insult; it is therefore to be expected that a Whig Secretary should violate it. Nor yet should we feel any surprise at a Papist Priest arro- gating to himself the designation of Archbishop of Tuam, when such Archbishopric, as a Protestant See, has been abolished by Earl Grey, for the mere purpose, we presume, of giving it to the Church of Rome. The cause for astonishment would have been the hesitation of Mr. Secretary Littleton to acknow- ledge the usurpation t but he has not hesitated, and all is as it should be—very liberal! That Lord J. Russell should give any thing at all would be con- sidered very extraordinary, were we not tempted to imagine that he deems it his duty to render back a trifle to that Church, from the spoliation of which by that arch-robber, Henry VIII. his ancestors de- rived their property. Thus, again, it is as it should be-very, very liberal!
AGRICULTURE, COMMERCE7 AND LONDON MARKETS. LONDON CORN EXCHANGE. OCT. 22.—We have been moderately supplied with Wheat and Flour during the past week, nor was the arrirel of Wheat this morning by any means large; the trade, nevertheless, contiuues in a dull state, the best runs barely maintaining the prices of this day se'nnight, whilst the middling and ordinary sorts are a trifle lower. Fine Barley is in request and obtains somewhat better terms, aud grinding parcels are rather dearer than otherwise. Beans of both sorts fully maintain our last quota- tion. Peas are steady in value. Having had an abundant supply of Oats during the past week, chiefly from Ireland, the trade is dull at a trifling decline in value. In other articles no altera- tion. 8.

LIVERPOOL CORN EXCHANGE. OCTOBER 22.—We had a fair attendance of buyers at this day's market, and with some few speculative purchases, and a moderate sale to consumers. Wheats supported the advance of Friday, aud we quote them fnlly 2d. per 70lbs. above those of this day week. Barley is quite as dear, and prime samples in tol- eiably good request. Beaus continue dull in sale, at barely so high rates. A fair business was done in Oats, and a few samples of fine new Irish rather exceeded our quotations of last week, though no advance can be made on the general runs of either new or old. Flour in moderate demand, first rate marks obtaining somewhat better prices. Outoieal 3d. per sack cheaper.
r -¡, WEYHILL FAIR.—The Hop Fair commenced on Saturday, but little business was transacted until Monday. It was a brisk fair and the stocks went off readily at advanced prices, best Farnham hops realizing Ill. to 121.; country hops 101. to Ill. one lot reached Ill. 15S. To THE TALLOW TRADE.—It appears the wily Muscovite merchants have been diddling their com- mercial brethren in Britain by constructing casks with tops so thick that a considerable portion of the proper quantity of tallow is decreased. This, to nay the least of it. is a stralure manoeuvre. How pmi I the Russians believe that they could.go on with im- punity to deceive John Bull by the medium of thick- heads? All men in the city are not like Alderman Wood, who has got a beam in his eye, and not a tre- mendous great deal in his noddle.-Aue. A very intelligent gentleman, recently returned from a tour in France, reports the silk manufacture to be in a state of great activity, all the looms being- employed. The cotton manufacture likewise is throughout France in a most prosperous condition, t A mine of excellent coal has been discovered in- the neighbourhood of Valenciennes, which will prove inestimably valuable to the numerous manufac- tories in that part of France. HIGHLAND MODE OF CONVEYING HIS MAJES- TY's MAIL.—We are informed that the mail-bags are conveyed from lnverary to Cairndow and back daily —a distance of twenty miles-in a wheel-barrow, drawn by the postman !-Glasgow Courier. STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH INDIA.—A meet- ing has been held at Bombay for the accomplishment of a regular communication by steam-boats between Europe and India, which has been taken in baud with so much zeal and energy that there is great probabi- lity of it being effected. NEW STEAM OMNIBUS.-Sir C. Dance's steam- coach now makes its trip three times a day from Wel- lington-street to Greenwich. The journies continue to be performed with safety and certainty, and all seem pleased with the ease and equable motion of the vehicle. PARTIAL DESTRUCTION OF THE BRIGHTON CHAIN PIER.-About a quarter to eight last night, during the violent storm that raged, a flash of lightning struck several of the suspension rods on the east side of the second and third bridges of the chain pier, which thereupon gave way, and the platform of the third bridge fell into the water. The platform of the second bridge is hanging to the rods on the west side. Hap- pily no lives were lo,-t.-Brighlon Guardian. UNDULATING RAILWAYS.^—By several experi- ments made at Liverpool, and related in the Mcr- cury, it appears that the undulating principle is most fully confined and it is proved beyond all doubt that a locomotive engine and load can traverse a curve or undulation whose two summits are of equal altitude with much greater rapidity, and, consequently, with far greater economy of time and power than a level road of proportionate length.

MERTHYR TYDVIL, SATURDAY, Oct. 26, I833 An opinion frequently prevails, among persons who are nowise hostile to the Established Church, that the distribution of Church Revenue is con- ducted with an inequality, which is at once in- consistent with the sound principle of propor- tioning the remuneration to the labour performed, and with the reverential attachment and affection which it is so desirable that the laity should enter- tain to the Clergy. The persons who hold this opinion remark, for instance, that it is quite in- consistent that the junior clergy, men of a sacred calling, men necessarily of eminent mental ac- quirements, men also exercising a vocation no less laborious than it is dignified and important, should receive the inadequate remuneration that they frequently do receive; while the higher dig- nitaries of the Church, whose ostensible duties appear so much lighter, receive the more ample revenues that they actually possess. To us it appears that this reasoning, plausible as it cer- tainly is, and offered, we believe, with conscien- tious sincerity of heart, is- extremely fallacious and we will state our reasons for thinking so. It cannot be necessary, in the present age, to demonstrate, either that religion is indispensable, or that Christianity is that religion, which not only bears incontestable proof of its divine ori- gin, but is also the most conducive to the moral and political happiness of mankind. In proof of this it may sufiice to say, that the most polished nations of heathen times, the nations among which human intellect attained (excepting the light of revealed religion) the highest acme of perfection, possessed no knowledge of the immortality of the soul: even the few eminently grand among their philosophers, who had any glimmerings of con- ception on this subject, only floundered in confu- sion and uncertainty on the threshold of this sublime truth. Those lofty and accomplished cultivators of that frail attribute, "human in- tellect," had no other means of engrafting on their system of worship those attributes which belong to divine nature, than by adding, as occasion might require, for every newly discovered attri- bute, a new god to their pantheon. In doing this, with the same finite discretion as we have from time to time enlarged our statutes, absur- dities insensibly crept in, which reason must deride, and barbarities,at which humanity revolts In the laboured depths of their philosophy, in the magnificent range of their literature, in the im- passioned fervour of their poets and orators, we see no type, we find no word expressing the idea, of that grace and strength of Christian morals, charity. These great prototypes of human in- tellect, these exemplars of mere human virtue, slaughtered their prisoners in cold blood. Among them, the useful classes of mankind, the agricultu- rists and the manufacturers,were slaves: and that portion of society to whom in Christian Eugland the Reform Bill has extended the highest of poli. tical privileges, were born in bondage, and bought and sold. We conceive we have said enough. If such was Paganism in Greece and Rome, what must be its attributes in less polished nations? But if the Christian religion be thus, we speak it not irreverently, the most conducive to the poli- tical happiness of mankind, the Protestant re- formed doctrine is its pure essence, and Popery a corrupted usurpation. Look at the moral tone of mind, and the limits of mental endowments, of the people of Spain, of Portugal, of Italy, of Austria, or of any Catholic country, and compare them with those of England and Scotland, or of Holland, or of any Protestant people. Or, to come nearer home, compare in the same qualifi- cations, the people of Ireland with those of Eng- land or Scotland. And this distinction it is not difficult to account for. To the one, the word of God, ungarbled and incorrupt, is eternally acces- sible: to the other, it is doled. out in scanty por- tions, garbled, or perhaps interpolated to suit the purposes of a hierarchy which cannot stand but in the shade of darkness. To the one, the whole range of human enquiry lies open and unre- stricted to the other, the high dead wall of pres- cription, its summit shrouded in the clouds and night, stands on every side. In France, the most enlightened of Popish countries, we know that for centuries the more learned of the dignitaries of the Church nay more, in Rome, even in the days of Luther we know that Leo, the head of the Popish Church, disbelieved those doctrines, which themselves, for lucre and state purposes assiduously promulgated among the people pre- cisely in the same spirit as the Whig journals now palm their impostures upon their simple readers. It were easy to show, that while Christianity is essentially Protestant, of all Protestant Com- munions the Established Church is by far the most perfect: but this it is not necessary to It, however, is important that we show the cessity of a Church Establishment; both beca. in these days of Economists, it is thought wei do without one and because the importance that Institution forms a ground work of further! inferences. It is not only the duty, it is the first interest o. every state, that the people live in a due sense of religion and for this purpose it is necessary that the state take measures that Ministers be pro- vided, always to administer,. not only to those who can pay, but to all persons, that religious instruction, that religious consolation, which it concerns the state, it concerns the efficiency of the laws, it concerns the safety of the public, that all persons in the community should obtain. Who can contemplate some recent most astonishing verdicts of British juries ? Who can contem- plate some recent popular acts of glaring wrong t Who can contemplate these things, and with them the laxity of religious principle of the pre- sent day, without seeing that the very safety of the public depends on the religious principle of the people ? As it is necessary that Christian Ministers' provided, so it is also that those Ministers be of eminent mental endowments. On their the defence of their tenets against seer Now it is impossible for any co Ilylmlv much more so for a community>f, IE*, t' long to subsist in efficiency and usefulne. a subordination of ranks. A hierarcl dation of ranks, indeed is not only -pt:. necessary; it is an Institution of Script' j dinance. In England it is also to be rem. that the average remuneration (if it were divided) of clerical duties, is extreniel3 would be in fact about £180. per an, each Minister. When we consider the g pence requisite in the education of a ger" destined for holy orders; that this educatio be performed in youth, and at the expence :m parents and that this expence can be de only by persons in a certain scale of opu n it may be justly expected that very few pa would qualify their sons for holy orders if th had no brighter prospects than £ 180 per yea The distribution, therefore, of the revenues the Church in a more equal proportion woi. defeat one most important object-the s¡¡fflèli supply of ministers to serve at the altar. In estimate usually received of the revenues & Bishoprics, gross exaggerations have beta made' and admitted as trnths with surprising credulity* Few of the English Bishoprics yield a revenue of as much as £5,000 a year; some are less than 92,000 and who, that truly feels the value of 1 religion, would wish to see that portion of the I clergy whom their station in the Church and their episcopal duties expose to heavy expences, con- demned to struggle against an inadequate re- I t, venue ? There is another point, however, which is the increasing of the revenues of small livings, and of curacies. Several Right Reverend Pre- lates have commenced in their respective dioceses the increase of the revenues of the smaller liv- ings; an operation, it is to be remembered, which can only be effected progressively, as the means of doing so arise. With respect to the increase of the income of curacies, the case is one of greater difficulty than- is commonly known. The rector, who appoints a curate, is frequently cir- cumscribed by his own income and his pecuniary engagements, so that he cannot pay more than a certain stipend; and if the curate, fully cogni- zant of hia own circumstances, and at liberty either to accept or to decline the engagement' think it still for his advantage to accept it, surely it is a very injudicious, though zealous benevo- lence, which would interpose to prevent hiin. If the aggregate revenues of the Church could be augmented, every good man would rejoice to see this evil remedied; but, knowing the limitations within which the whole is confined, we confess that we doubt whether any great change in the distribution could be judiciously effected.
The French Papers give a comparative state- ment of the revenue of that country, stating as the result that the advantage is much in favour of this year, the nine mouths past exceeding the corresponding period in 1831, by 37.487,000 francs, and that of 1832, by 15,365,000 francs. Proceedings have been instituted against the Mode," for an article on the presentation of the young Frenchmen to the Duke of Bordeaux. Prosecutions have also been commenced against the Gazette de France," the Quotidienne," and the Echo Frangais," for copying the same notice. The Council of Regency appointed by the wili of Ferdinand, consists of able and upright states- men. Santa Cruz is a skilful and experienced diplomatist, desirous to make such improvenictill as can be safely effected. Amarillas. who wat; Minister of War in the time of the Cortes ot 1820, ia an individual of great talent and high courage, and a strenuous partisan of limited monarchy. Puig, the dean of the Council of Castile, has signalised himself, at all times, by unshaken firmness and unblemished probity. He wrought, with great skill,. upou Cie late Sove- reign to diopose of- the succession in favour of Isabella. Castanos is a veteran, par excellence, of the Spanish ranks-a soldier, .ôvho: has not a drop of blood in his veins but what is true Cas- tilian. We possess no trifling sr.' urity in the in- tegrity and moderation of ical sentiments, which distinguish the Duk 4r,"ut I'Medina-Cwli, as well as in the immense stake which he holds in the country. In conjunction with these, Zea Bermudez, Cardinal Catalan, and Caro, with the Count d'Ofalia and General Cruz, lorm an admi- nistration combining great talent and efficiency. —Intelligence from Madrid states that on the 10th inst. the Count de Rayneval, the French Ambassador, had a private audience of the Queen Regent, to make to her a communication, the substance of which was, "that the King of the French, in the quality o a e ally and relative of the Queen Regent, olfero supply her with all the assistance she may require iu any circum- stance to support the throne of her daughter. General Quesada also made protestations of fide- lity to the Queen, and it was said that he was to be appointed Viceroy of Navarre.The in- surrection at Bilboa is spoken of in the Madrid Gazette." It is reported that attempts had been I made at Pampeluna, under General Santos ¡I Ladron, and at Irun, to proclaim Don Carlos, but they'were suppressed. News from Bayonne of the 13th, states that at Bilboa his standard was triumphant, and the whole population of Biscay, triumphant, and the whole population of Biscay, even the women, had declared in his favour: he was proclaimed at Lograno on the 7th. pa the b r :¡')r\ Wtibro»l. .tt 1* '•■'t,' itt Roa.is. stan letter ti'.fd #t Pct.i'a Oo»1Y<- iionv soon a d. \1¡X!"

THE LATEST LONDON INTELLIGENCE. The King of Holland opened the States General on the 2lst with a speech, in which he significantly remarks," Our present relations with the different powers inspire tranquillity: from some of them I have received, even very recently, proofs of real kindness' On the probable termination of the Belgian dispute, the speech throws no light, The other topics of the speech describe princi- pally the commercial and financial improvement Of tile country. The Duke and Duchess of Cumberland, and Prince George, arrived at Potsdam on the 13th. Accounts from Constantinople represent that Capital as in a tranquil state. The Letters from Vienna, received at Ham- burgh, dated 11th of October, speak of serious disturbances at Cyprus having taken place, in which 100 lives were lost, besides the Turkish Governor but no Europeans are mentioned to have perished, except a consular agent, who was hanged by the rioters. Information has been posted to-day of an action having taken place between the forces of the Quetil and Don Miguel, in which the latter were defeated with the loss of 1,000 men (hors de combat)—the Pedroite party losing 400, and further operations were expected.
