SERMON IN AID or THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS.— On Sunday last, the Rev. Chancellor Knight preached in aid of these excellent Establishments one of the most admirable discourses that we remember ever to have heard. The Rev. gentleman selected as his toxt, 6ih chap. Deuteronomy, 6th and 7th verses, And these words which I command thee this day shall be in thine heart. And thou shall teach them dilig-ently unto thy children, and shall talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." The discourse of the Rev. Chancellor not only formed a most powerful appeal, eloqueutly pourtraying all the strong claims of the Institution on the Chris- tian pubtic, but also combated with irresistible power all the objections which have of late been erroneously raised against the education of the poor. His argn- ments on this score were forcibly and aptly illustrated by asking, was the ore of the iron to be left buried in the mountain, because it had furnished the substance of the dagger of the assassin? or, was the art of writing, so highly useful and conducive to the happiness of mankind, not to be taught, because some abandoned miscreant had made use of such instruction to perpetrate the crime of forgery ?'' After a discourse of very considerable duration, of which any attempt at abridgment would be injustice, the Rev. gentleman ended a most powerful and eloquent appeal by quoting the 17th and 18th verses of 60th chap. of Isaiah, For brass will I bring gold, and for iron will I bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness. Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy g-aes Praise." We are informed that the Rev. Chancellor had promised his old parishioners of Aberdarc to preach to them in Welsh in the afternoon, which of course prevented his doing so at Merthyr, but we understand that. in answer to an application he has promised that he would shortly do so.

BRECONSHIRE. INNKEEPERS Jones t'. Tyler.-This was an action which was tried at the last assizes in Wales. It was brought by a gentleman to recover 201, from an innkeeper. near Brecknock, for. the loss of a gig, which he had left in his care, and a verdict was given for the plaintiff- Mr. Jervis, sen. moved for a rule to set aside the verdict on these grounds. The plaintiff stopped at the o*-fenda«t's inn, but did not place his gig exactly on the premises; it was placed, as it was contended, where vehicles usually were on a fair or market day. The was exchanged by some person who took it and left au old one in its stead, which was not worth 30s. The Learned Counsel submitted that the place where the plaintiff left his gig was no part of the defendant's premises. The plaintiff had asked the hostler whether there was room in the stables, and being told there was not, the plaintiff left it at the spot from which it was stolen-that place being, in fact, a part of the high road. Under these circum- stances Mr. Jervis contended that the defendant was not liable for the loss,—R«le granted.
- GLANBRANE PARK ESTATE.
GLANBRANE PARK ESTATE. Î The sale and transfer of .this fine domain has made a considerable sensation both locally and generally. s s t b There are circumttanees connected with it moreover which will not diminish the public interest in the event, and which afford remarkable as well as me- lancholy exemplifications of human viscissitndes. Glanbrane Park has, it is well known, passed away from the ancient and honourable house in which it has for generations (we believe) been in- vested, into those of that Leviathan of Bankers, Lewis Loyd, Esq. of London. The inhabitants of Mon- mouth were paintully affected, after the recent public announcement ot the -sale, by seeing Sackville Gwynne, Esq. son of its late owner, and heir to the magnificent property, pass through that tc-.vn in the mail on Wednesday last, on, it may be presumed, his way to Carmarthen. He would have to travel on this journey, perhaps, through the very domain of his ancestors, to the possession of which he was himself brought up, and to whose enjoyment he must have looked forward. This must, it is natural to suppose, be a severe trial to his fortitude. It is gratifying to learn, however, that he appeared in excellent health. Mr. Sackville Gwynne is now, we are concerned to hear, engaged in driving the Age, Brighton and London daily coach, in which it is said he has a share. We say concerned, on the sup- position that such an occupation may be owing to an unfortunate change of circumstances although no man need feel degraded from the endeavour, by honourable industrv, to repair the chances of fortune the errors ot youth, and the faults or follies of inexperience. It way be viewed, on the contrary, as proof of strength oi mind. Whilst such is the position of the descendant of an ancient and respected house, that of the pur- chaser of his inheritance, strikes upon us in sin- gular contrast. Mr. Lewis Loyd is, we believe, principally the artificer of his own immense fortune. He counts up no ancestry of note, he boasts no quar- terings, nay, for anything that lwe know, his name and lineage may be perfectly unbetokened in the Iterald's college. He was originally, we believe, a Presbyterian or Unitarian Minister at Man- chester, but on his marriage with the only sister of the Messrs. Jones s of that town, the Bankers and formerly Tea-dealers, he entered and became a partner in the Banking-house. Subsequently he removed to London to take the management of the corresponding house, and there found an ample and adequate theatre for the exertion of his great com- mercial talents. Under his auspices the establish- ment gradually rose to its present preeminence, the firm of Jones, Loyd, and Co. of London and Manchester, being now considered as the wealthiest Bank not of the Metropolis only but of the whole empire. Mr. Lewis Loyd has, by his first marriage with Miss Jones, one son, anonly child. This son, Samuel Jones Loyd, Esq. now associated with his father In the banking business, has already inherited the whole of the vast fortunes of two uncles, Messrs. William and Samuel Jones, the founders of the Manchester Hotise,-both of whom died childless. He is in like manner the sole heir of his father, who may be accounted the richest ready money capitalist in:England, if we except perhaps Richard Arkwright, Esq., the great Derbyshire cotton spinner and son of the Sir Richard who, by his .inventions, may be reckoned the father of the trade. We are happy to perceive Mr. Loyd expending some of his immense property in his native conntry and among his countrymen—for Jie is we believe a true Welshman born and bred. We hope the time is not distant when we shall be honoured also with his presence amongst us an event which would we doubt not be productive of beneficial consequences to his tenantry, as well as the country at large here- abouts. Ross, HEREFORDSHIRE.—Such has been the abundance of the appfo-crop this season, that besides the immense quantities of cider made, very large heaps of the fruit may be seen on the grounds, gar- dens, or orchards, of almost every farm house. In many districts the fruit may yet be seen encumbering the overloaded trees all as if showing that the far- mer was yet hesitatiag, or waiting to see whether the prices of cider will advance to any thing like a remu- nerating price, or if he shall, rather than submit to the present rates, peri.iit his produce to rot upon the ground,or fall uncared for from theoveiloaded branches. The Ledbury merchants have as usucd, iu concert, and by common consent it is said, fixed three-pence per ga lon as the maximum price which the farmer must submit to if he wish to effect sales. rheM. terms certainly appear ruinous fir it is understood that the expfnse of gaiheriug and pressing the I''11' and racking the cider, alot^e amount to seven shillings a hogshead. The quality of this year's cider is very- superior, and there is 110 doubt "ill commaud a leady sale when the merchants, after due keeping and management, shall have bottled it. It is more than pi-obtitile that' the Led'niry dealers, tdthough so hard upon their agricultural fiiendsj wiM not charge nor obtain less than tu-o shillings per gallon trom their trade customers iu the Loudon and other markets. N ATURAL CURIOSITY.—A cave is said to have been discovered within Nash Rocks,near Presteigu, in Radnorshire, on the estate of the Earl of Oxfurd, at an elevation of some hundreds of feet from the plain The eeseent from the entrance is 20 feet, the roof full 30. The dimensions may be 300 feet in circumference, but the immense size and number of pIllars render it impossible to the eye to ascertain the exact admeasure- ments. This natural curiosity consists in the petrified pillars, which appear to have been torined by dripping from the ceiling or roof. From the length of time nature has been performing her work many of them are at least six feet round at the top. They reach to the floor, and have become perfect pillars of stone, ap- pearinglike inverted cones; others are like icicles, or, in common terms eaves droppings. The rocks are situated between the Hill Garraway mountains, near the river Enwel1, where the remains of the ever memo- rable Sir Samuel Romilly are deposited in the family vault of his late relative, Colonel Foley. It was here, in the midst of cataracts and the wildest picturesque scenery, that this great lawyer and legislatoi, rested f.om the fatigues of his pro fessioll.-Shrewsbury Chronicle. MOLD.—The parishioners of Mold held a vestry on Saturday the 2d instant, when it was resolved thrt they could not allow the Rev. J. James (who has been preferred to the rectory of Llanscntffroid Glan I Conway, by the Lord Bishop of St. Asaph), to quit his ministry without recording the high sense they entertain of the faithfulness and value of his ser* vices, while engaged as Curate and that a subscrip- tion be entered into for the purpose of presenting him with some memorial of their feeling. A very handsome sum, we are informed, has already been subscribed for that purpose. TREASURE TROVE—A few weeks ago, in a gravel pit in a field near Mold, called Cae bryn a llynion, belonging to Colonel Salisbury, was found a curious piece of gold plate of the value of £ 30, which is supposed to have been worn in ancient times asa tippet, by the officer of some religious order. It is now in the possession of Mr. Langford, of Mold, who is, we believe, the tenant of the field. A worthy dispute is said to be rife at present in the neighbour- hood, respecting the ownership of this curious relic— whether it belongs to the finder, the landlord, or the crown. HOLYHEAD.—On the 3d inst. wind N.W. hlow- ing a strong gale of wind, the brig Fancy, of White- hayen, Russell, Master, laden with oats from Wicklow to Liverpool, in attempting to enter the harbour, drifted to leeward, on the bank and bilged, crew saved, cargo damaged, aild is now discharging and it is supposed that the vessel will be floated off. LLANDDVVYN.—Last week the body of a man, dressed as a sailor, was washed ashore at Llanddwyn, ill Anglesey. Upon his person was found a cer- yficate °f service on board the U.S. revenue cutter Hamilton, by Henrich P. Hanrath, and a letter to [he same address, in the German language, dated Hamburgh. He was supposed to have been one of the crew of the schooner wrecked on Carnarvon bar on Suuday week.-IVorth Wales Chronicle. ACCIDENT AT WREXIIAm.-Early on Thursday morning se'nnight, this town was throwu into a state of the most violent agitation and alarm, by the explo. sion of two canisters of gunpowder. It appears that a waggon, heavily laden with various packages from Chester fair, belonging to the country shopkeepers iu Wales, arrived in Wrexham late on Wednesday night, and was left standing in Chester-street, nearly oppo- site the residence of Roger Jones, Esq. The wag- goner went about two o'clock in the morning wit h a lighted caudle to the waggon, and by some misfortune jet it fall amongst the straw, which immediately ignited, and communicated to a cask of turpentine, some oils, and two large canisters of gunpowder, which very soon exploded. The engines were speedily in use and the fire was got under, otherwise that part of the town would have soon been laid in ashes. An- other waggou which stood near began to burn, but was fortunately extinguished; it contained three casks of gunpowder. North W ales Chronicle. NEWPORT.—On Thursday morning, the body of an elderly man named Davis, a butcher, was found in the Monmouthshire canal. It is supposed the un- fortunate man fell into the canal by accident, as he was seen !ate the preceding night. r, JOSEPH Any IF 'VVAI.ES.—Among the various attempts on the pockets of the Cambrians made by 1 his notorious pest and public nuisance, he lare:y' adc.rt-M H'd one of his precious circulars to the Church- wardens and Inhabitants of Builih, with the usual demand of a sovereign for his promised pecuniary discoveries.

THti MiiN OF BUILTH. — Carmarthen Journal. ACCIDENTAL DEATH.—On Saturday night, the the lId instant, an inquest was taken before John Howell Thomas, Esq. and a respectable Jury, touch ing the death of John Morgans, Esq. of Blaenwern, in the parish of Ystrad, Cardiganshire who, on his return home the previous night from Aberayron, alighted oti his horse, it is supposed, upon the turn- pike road, leading through Lan Ayron Wood, where, by some means or other, he wandered out ot the said road, and tell over a tremendous precipice, at the bottom of which flows the river Ayron, in which, melancholy to relate, he was found drowned Verdict —" Accidental Death." The coroner and the jury who sat upon the above inquest, very justly com- mented upon the extreme danger and culpableness of s utile ring such precipices as the above upon the verge of the turnpike roads, to be so appallingly exposed without any fence. John Morgans, Esq. was a man in affluent circumstances, and was universally re- spected, and though about four score years of age, he might very well as far as constitutional powers were colicertied. have lived 15 or 2J years longer, had it not been for the melancholy catastrophe which terminated his existence. We trust a sense of hu- manity Mill induce the trustees to fence this dan- gerons precipice (b, thwith, or if they do not, we hope some public spirited individual will indict it.-Ibid. STOUT SWEARING.-Mr. H. Lewis, attorney, ap- peared to answer the complaint of Thomas Williams, son of the toll-collector, charged with having as- saulted him, and excited a mob to commit violeuce on the toll-collectors, and advising them to "take their sticks and knives to murder them," and "stating that he would stand before them and the conse- quences. This charge the complainant swore to, and called several witnesses to corroborate his state- ment. On the part of the defendant (Mr. Lewis), as many and more witnesses swore that no assault was committed, or the words imputed to him were made use of. He was also charged with having assaulted John Lewis, a constable, upon the same occasion. The evidence was the same as in the other case and the witnesses, on both sides, were ready to swear for their respective parties.

Mr. W Roberts, a silversmith, residing at Bath, stated that 011 Thursday, the 24th ult. the prisoner came to his shop aid offered several pieces of plate for sale, which on being produced were identi- fied as part of the stolen property. The prisoner told 41r. R. that he bought the silver of a traveller for 5s Prisoner nsked 8s. tor the pioperty, but witness at once auspectiug that he had obtained posses-ion of it dishonestly, feigned an excuse as to want of change, and coming round the counter seized him by the' colla and gave him into custody. On their road to Gloucester, he prisoner said that he had receivid the property from a traveller, named John Smith, who represented that he had purchased it of a person namt-d Powell, at Devizes, and that Illotliei- mail, na- med John (Jolstone, had been present at the time Smith gave it io him to sell. Prisoner denied having been ai Gloucester at the time ot lhe robbery. Mar- g«ret Hoguan, a servant in the employ of the Abbe Josse, proved the loss of the property on the niffht in question, a.id John Sants, the clerk of the chapel, who identified the arlicl.-s produced (as did also the Abl e Joss.-) de posed that he had seen thtiti in the chapel on 'lie nighi previous 10 the robhe.y. Clarke, the M-iyors officer deposed to having seen the prisoner at ditierent public houses about the time of the roi bery. The prisoner in a rigmarole defence deuied all par- ticipation in the robbery, he was, however, eventually committed to take his trial at tne ensuing Quarter Sessions, and the parties bound over to prosecute.

CHESTER FAIR -The quantity of cheese in our fair last Wednesday, was larger than on any former ooccasion. In the two hahs there could not have been less than 400 tons, a great portion of which was sold at prices rather below the pievious fair. The horse fair was but indifferently supplied, and conse- quently but Lttle business done. There was a toler- able supply of sheep, pigs, and fat store cattle, which sold freely at former pi,ices. -Chester Courant. The season at Aberystwithis now drawing to a close, having been prosperous beyond any former year and it is most apparent this delightful water- ing place is rapidly and deservedly advancing iu public favour. Amongst the departures of the last week is the Duke of Newcastle, and family, for Hatod, where they purpose remaining for about a fortnight previously to returning to Eg-land, Seve- ral distinguished families are sull lemaining. DREADFUL ACCIDENT.—On Saturday last, as some men were packing the piston at one of the great engines at Consolls mine, a most melancholy accident occurred. While one oftlie men Was dowu in the cylinder, through some mistake the steam was let on, which literally blew him out Two lads who were present were scalded to death another man who was in the engine house ran up the stairs, was over- taken by the steam, and so scalded that he died on the following day. A lad who was on the upper floor at the time, ran out on the bob or beam flat, and laid hold on the capstan rope and saved his life.-Fal- mouth Packet. WILLIAMS v. GREVILLE.—This was an action in the Court of King's Bench, brought by an innkeeper, at Haverfordwest, to recover 1,68-2/. from the Hon. Captain Greville, for expeuces incurred by that hon. gentleman during his contested election for Pem- brokeshire. It was tried at the last assizes for the county of Brecon, and a verdict found for the plaintiff for 6391. The Solicitor General now moved for a rule to shew cause why the verdict slionld not be set aside, and a nonsuit entered..The whole of this enor- mous demand was alleged to have accrued between the 10th and 16th of May, and was incurred in treating voters ar.d non-voters. The hon. candidate had paid six hundred pounds into court, which he contended was the full amount to which he was liable; and he had the courage to resist the rest of the demand, on the grour.d that it was illegal. After paying the 600Z. into Court, 1,0821.remained, and in the claim was a sum of 4431. for the non-voters' eating, which the learned jltdge who tried the cause directed to be ex- punged, as being too gross. The balance then in issue was 6391. There were many extravagant items in the account, such as the following :-97i dozen of port, 64 ditto sherry, 67 gallons of brandy, 59 ditto rum, 32 barrels of ale, &c. and all in six or seven days The learned judge had directed the Jury to disallow every item that was charged for voters, as coming under the Bribing and Treating Act, but the jury, contrary to that direction, had found for 6391. The learned counsel contended that, according to the evidence and the direction of the learned juge, the 600Z. paid into Court would amply cover all legal ex- peuces. Their lordships, after some consultation, said it would be necessary to consult the learned judge ivho had tried the cause before they gave their opinion upon it.
TO TII E EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE…
TO TII E EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE AND GUARDIAN SIR, Having observed in your last paper a trans- lation of the celebrated epitaph in Margain Church, it occurred to me that one more modern might be ac- ceptable to your readers. If therefore, the following attempt from a very humble votary of the Muse be thought worthy a place in your agreeable and in- teresting Journal, it is much at your service. Let me however, propose a critical amendment on one of the lines in the original, which I am persuaded will furnish the true reading. In the distich" C-irsiiin proevertit humaLnitn Proh dolor I Evanutn I doubt not every person has remarked an inharmo- nious order in the first line-" Claudicat versus as the critics say. To me it appears that the harmony would be restored and a better sense obtained by sub- stituting "prcevenit" for prcevertit the hasty writing of rand l will readilly suggesMhe cause of the error. The classical use of the word "co nela ilia to" may possibly have escaped some of your readers for their advantage it may be remembered, that it was usual with the ancients at funerals to call aloud three times to the deceased person by his name there are proofs of this practice in abundance in Horace, Theocritus, Virgil, &c. It originated in a notion that if any life remained such would be the most probable means of calling it into action. It is recorded by Pliny that some have revived at their own funerals, andManilius writes Ex ipsis quida^m elati rediere' sepulcris "—hence the expressions Supremllm ter voce ciemus''—and again, Manes ter voce vocavi." -Virgil. and in Lucan "corpora rondula eol cla- Inta jacent," When no symptom ot life appeared after these invocations, in the deceased, he was said to be conclamatus." I remain, Sir, With every good wish Your humble servant U PENDAR. Ye, who kneel at Hubert s shrine, Hubert, now a name divine And wind the sportive horn which he Bequeathed you bis last legacy, Let no loud shouts or halloosliow. Change the notes to sounds of woe For who but mourns when to the dead S) choice a spoi tsman's spirit fleii ? Or can grief be hetter shown Than at Kvan Rhys's stone? He, thro'craggy ways or plain Swift of foot nor swift in vain, With weapons and with hounds pursued All the tenant of the wood- Up with the dilWIl his speed surpassed The hounding stag, and driving blast, He was keen for sport when high Phoebus rules the middle sky, And as unfatigued, when he Dips beneath the western sea. But he, my friends, whom ye deplore Shall lead you in the field no more; For death, feHiJUBter of our race, And never sated with the chace, v For human foot too sitre arid fast, Ah! has on Evan seized at last! .j Norat noon-tide, nor at morn r Will you see him-but forlorn He a long long night must sleep, We his friends be left to weep. Well has he closed his active days To many known and known with praise Horn, hounds and horses lose their friend, And may peace his shade attend. Erected by Thomas Mansel a kind master, to Kvan Rhy's, a faithful servant.—1702. We are informed by a learned correspondent that the original epitaph was written, not by Dr. Friend head master of Westminster School, asvwe supposed in a former number, but by the celebrated classical Physician of that name, who was on intimate terms with the Mansel family.
YORK CITY ELFCTION.- contest commenced for the representation of the city of York 011 Wed- nesday week, a vacancy having occurred by the death of Captain Baynton, of looking-glass notoriety. It was supposed up to the day of ejection, that the Bon. T. Duudas would walk over the course; but he having voted for the first W hig Reform Bill, which proposed to disfVanchis.* all fteemen, they put John Heury Lowther, Esq. a conservative, in nomination, aud ultimately elected him by a large majority. ROYAL CAMBRIAN INSTITUTION.—The com- mittee of this patriotic society, which was founded in 1^20, on the basis of Cynimrodorion (originally instituted in 1751) are employing competent persons to make a catalogue of the scarce and valuable MSS. in their possession, consisting of the works of the Bards lrom the 13th century downwards. The So- ciety has also caused a catalogue to be made ot all the iWSS. in the British Museum, relative to ancient British history. When completed, both these in- teresting documents will be printed, together with an historical account of the monasteries and abbeys in Wales; also of the castles in the counties of Glamorgan and Monmouth, the latter being one of the subjects proposed by the institution, to be awarded at the Royal Eisteddfod, Cardiff, next autumn.-Lolldon Guardian. ERRATA,—In Article The Aneient Newspaper iu our number of 2nd of November, for ''considerable explieitness" read CO"si(ielzite explicit liess-in the blank after" satiu" read and spangled drapery- for less potent to make "mischief^ read less potent to work mischief- tor 46 the ancient hero, or bring its tenant" read the ancient hero, or king its teitant. -¡iUVb;:Sl'y¡TF;-PU¡¡TU(]ÙÈSE THIEVE, oft- An English gentleman, in Portugal, received a letter directed to him at Leira from a man whom he well knew to be one of the leaders of the band in which he was informed that it was known to the Ladrones that he contemplated a journey to Oporto, where he was he was to receive a large sum of money; and that consequently he was in good case to lend them ten moidores, of which they were much in want, having experienced a very unprofitable season: the letter indicated the spot where he was to deposit the money; which would be secured by a man on the watch for him, and assured him that it should be returned on a particular day but that, in the event of his declining to comply with their request, he had better not venture to travel by that or any other road in Portugal, as he would never reach the end of his journey while there was a quick eye and a sharp blade left in the woods! What was to be done ? The wife of Mr. was possessed of considerable landed property; Portugal was the country of his adoption; and he knew that if the Ladrones could boast no other virtue they were at least well known never to falsify their promises. He went to Oporto; and when on his return he reached the spot appointed by his correspondent he quietly dismounted, and deposited his ten moidores as he had been directed it need scarcely be remarked, that he entertained not the slightest hopes of ever seeing them asrain. The Coreiro looked on, but he did not affect any surprise at the proceeding; on the contrary, he muttered to himself the old proverb, "A bott cnten- dedor j)oncas palarras; and then continued the conversation which had been interrupted by the in- cident just related. The day arrived on which the Ladroni; had promised in his letter to repay the money but Mr. had so little faith, in the pro- mise that he did not even remember the fact; at dusk one of his servants informed him that a muleteer wished to speak to the Senhor; we was accordingly shown up stairs, and entered the apartment uncon- cernedly as though he had been the parish priesjt. Mr. ——— looked at him, and, perceiving that he was a stranger to him, inquired his business. Heisso?" he said respectfully, as he counted out ten moidores on the table; "this was the day appointed, and I come to return with thanks what was so trus ingly lent. If the Senhor is ever pushed for money let him leave a letter where he deposited his money the other day we will help him if we can-I"uç'l-me a ltmra df. me póer aos pes da Seyihoi-a." And, having so said, he drew his chapeo lower on his brow, and sprang down the stairs. I need scarcely say that Mr. never availed himself of this extraordinary offer of service but the Ladrones were by no means so scrupulous, as they frequently applied to him for assistance, and in no one instance did they ever break their faith.
CONTEMPORARY PRESS. 0
CONTEMPORARY PRESS. 0 fFrom the London Guardian.) The Whigs appear to be making strenuous exer- tions just now to get up some public feelin? iu their favour previous to the meeting of Parliament or rather we should say, that Lord Durham is operating a grand manoeuvre to push himself again into the Ministry, and that talkative gentleman, Mr. Bab Macauley is exerting whatever power of lungs and force of talent appertain to him, to preserve himself and his parent honest Zacharv in the posts which respectively correspond to them—this same Zachary, by the way, being the person commonly reported to have libelled the King and his family during the Re- form Bill. We have not felt ourselves called upon to give a report of these meetings on dinner parties, because in truth the pressure of our ad vertisiug, and other matter of superior interest has not allowed us the space requisite. We certainly regret the omission much more than any of our readers will, for more potent displays of ignorance, twaddle, and spleen have rarely been exhibited. The exhibition at Leeds was really in the highest degree discreditable to Mr Macaulay, who had acquired some sort of repute by various set speeches worked up in all the flimsy foppery of antithesis upon the Reform Bili. This gentleman occupied his auditory' foi- a considerable time by the achievements of his eolleagues in the Mini-try atid liirnself, which must have forcibly re- minded his hearers ofa certain colloquy in wnich one of the subjects exel 'LiiiiieCi-ILord how we apples I swiM" One Olapham, Esq., Clerk to the Gas Com- pany at a salary of lOJt. a year, was Chairman—the same person probably who npon the inquiry of the Factory Bill presented himself a clerk to Messrs. Baines, of the Leeds Mercury. The rest of the com- pany appear to have been of the ame calibre. Lord Durham not content with his exposure at Gateshead, ventured upon a show off at Sunderland. The noble Lord was here upon surer ground. A company was packed from among his own tenants. Radicalism, or Republicanism of the deepest dye, was spouted by him at Gateshfad. At Sunderland he re- cants, and resolves himself into Whiggery once more. At the former place he was all for revolution at the latter he declaims against the prevalent desire for innovation." The only speech worth giving—and we would have given it, but that the paper was mis'aid containing it—was that of one Mr. Hedworth Lainb- ton, I)rotliet--twir, brother we should think of his lordship. It is saying much to assert, that Lord Dur- ham never spoke anything more ridiculous, more sense- less, more splenetic, or more worthy of Bedlam. Should we be able to discover the preeious document, we will yet publish it, to make good our characteristic of it. The secret of all this is that Lord Grey is seriously thinking of retiring, but the family feel'iig forbids his doing so without completing that fair pro- vision for the numerous horde of Greys and Lambtons, to which Lord Durham conceives their eminent ser- vices on he Reform Bill entitle them. It is a family combination to force upon the Cabinet a last leiracy of the Greys, as a final consummation of all the blessings we have derived from them. "All this sort of farce will be understood bv the people too well to need illustration. There are how- ever, perchance, some worthy *olks who may not un- derstand why, because the price of coals ha<-> falle'b and the Sunderland collieries are less gainful, Lord Durham should have become endowed all at once with the qualities of a statesman. We are no friends to the pensioning of Peers, but as a matter of economy, we should think the public would gain in buying oti the Durham from the Ministry, by taking his coal at the prosperity price, and enabling him thereby to imitate once more the bull-frog bursting himself by envious emulation of the lordly ox, his next-door neighbour. The six thousand a year of a Cabinet 31inister we can easily imagine to be au object of am- bition to a coal owner now a days. Lord Durham will understand us; or at least some of his co-directors of the Fire and Fury Companies of the year 1816 will.
IMPROVEMENT ON PUNips.-We have been milch gratified by an inspection of" The Pajeut Fountain Pump, constructed by Mr Bea,Eie, amode) of which has been shown by Mr. Hall, Ageut to the .Patentee, to several of our intelligent townsmen. This admira- ble improvement upon that very useful machine works wlth a degree of precision and accuracy that is actu- ally perfect. With incomparably less labour than any of the pumps already ill use, it raises, in the same t'me, double the quantity of water It answers all the Purposes both of the common pump and of the forcing Pu,i»p, with superior facility and effect, aud has the great advantage over them of avoiding friction, ad- hesion, and leakage. It is a beautiful improvement in Inechauisrn, and has also a decided advantage on the score ofeconomy. TRIAL OF MRS. GALWAY rOR BIGANIY.-AT tile Dublin Commission Court, on Wednesday week, the trial Oflli-s. Galway for having married Mr. J.Scottj0f Cahircon, in the County (Jare, during the lifetime of her former husband, Mr. Galway, was brought to a conclusion. It appeared that she was married to Mr. Galway, at Dubliu, in the year 1821, and that after living with her about a year, they separated, and he went to France. In March last she was married to M'. John Scott, an only son, who was just Of atre. After she had been living with Mr. Scott about two months, circumstances arose that gave the family cause to suspect her husband was alive; and Mr. Maurice O'Connell, who had married one of Mr. Scott's sisters, endeavoured to discover him. Persons were sent to France, to search for Mr. Galway, and he was taken to Ireland. Mr. M. O'Connell had greatly interested himself in elucidating the business, and wanted Mrs. Galway to sign a paper resigning all claim to Mr. Scott as her husband but she refused, and shortly afterwards he introduced Mr, G. into the uiawiiig-ioom where his wife was sitting. Air. G. identified the prisoner as his wife, and aimost imme- (hettely left the house on his return to France The family of Mr. Scott then determined to commence pro- ceedings against the lady. At the trial the jury, after having retired some time, expressed doubts res- pectiiitr the proof of the- first hiarriage,and afier coining into Court twice for information us to the lega!ity of taking the prisoner's admission for evidéllce, they de- clared there was no possibility of their agreeing, and they were discharged. Mrs. Galway was then held to bail to take her trial at the next Commission.

DISTRESSING SHIPWRECK.—A melancholy ship- wreck took place at the mouth of the Menai Straits-, on Sunday week last, involving loss of life. Early iu the forenoon, a large schooner was seen standing off the Carnarvon bar, as was supposed with the inten- tion of entering the Straits, a very heavy sea prevail- ing at the time. About ten o'clook in the morning she struck on the north side of the bar, about a mile from the shore, between Llanddwyn and the entrance !.0 ,h^S!,?1,'rVThe vessel was observed very plainly fromTwthill, Carnarvon, and, with the fid of a "-lass four men were seen cling-ingto oue of the masts and tlll rigging. About one o'clock, the mast disappeared, together with the men, and the vessel went to pieces, and became a complete wreck. Not any of the crew were saved. The vessel is said to be' the StIff of Life schooner, burthen 107 tons, bound from Cork to Liverpool, and freighted with grain.
