FASHIONABLES, LITERATURE, &c. Her Majestv has contributed £ 25 to the ftilid for raising a tablet to the memory of the late Mrs. H. More, and for the foundation of a school to bear the name of the deceased. The Marquis of Siigo, who has been recently appointed to the Governorship of Jamaica, possesses, it is understood, considerable property in that island. FLECTION FOR TOTNES.Iolin Thomas Mnyue' Esq. of Teffont House, Wilts, is announced as a candidate for the representation of Totnes, in the room of J. Cornish, Esq. who, it is understood, will shortly resign his seat. THE GIZLAT UNDF-,tTAKFit.Tite Lord Chan- cellor, with a view of furthering the interests of the Mechanics' Institution of Manchester, has, says thi? Chronicle of that town iiiiflwtttken to furnish a course of Lectures on Political Economy to be delivered to the members.— Manchester Paper. (No doubt while the Suitors in Chancery are sent to settle it among themselves.") OLD BROOMS.—When Sir Henry Parnel was Secretary at War, the soldiers used to call him Sir Henry I'are-N'hit. His thriftiness, however, was profusion compared with the management of his successor. An order literally came out last week from the War Office, that when the besoms, which were used to sweep the barracks, were worn out, the handles should be split into four pieces and used for lighting fires! Is it not too nauseating to see a government who are spending thousands daily in corporation jobs, charity jobs, and in short every job to increase their patronage, endeavouring to g,)Il the public into a belief that they are really econo- mical, by issuing an order for splitting oldBroughum- sticks ? "OH, THAT I'D CLEAR 5001; A-YEAR.— SO sings Panjtlox, and likewise a multitude of briefless barristers, who detesting law, find in its great con- temner, Lord Brougham, j a marvellous proper man." His Iordsiilp too has a sort of sympathetic feeling with those who hope in change at once to veil their ignorance and to acquire a slice of the loaves and fishes; for by the new Corporations' Bill, each new borough is to have the satisfaction of paying a Recorder some 500/. or 6001. a-vear. 11 We should like to know," says the North Devon Advertiser, what the borough of Devonport, or any other freshly-franchised town, wants of a Recorder to sit twice or thrice a week, any more than the borough of Barnstaple, or the large and populous city of Exeter —both of which have Recorders, to preside at Sessions, at about forty guineas a year." Our con- temporary is singularly obtuse. It is not the boroughs that require Recorders, but Lord Brougham that requires dependents and for that the Bill is frained.-Old England. SKETCH OF LORD BROUGHAM —The annexed portrait was sketched by a writer of no mean cele- brity:—"We will tell Lord Broirgham what the public think of him, for he will learn no truth from his parasites in the ministerial press. They think him a man of great abilities-of considerable extent, but little depth of knowledge-of great accuteness of observation, great facility of expression, and sur- prising but irregular energy both in acting and speaking; but thinking all this, the public gene- ra Ily, and especially the bar, look upon him as the very worst Chancellor we have had for a hundred years. No man in the oilice has ever known less of the busines which he ought to know well and no man, however fitted for the oflice, has ever behaved so arrogantly in the administration of its-duties. Men of as little knowledge of equity law, and of per- haps less general knowledge, have een in the place before, but they so deported themselves as not to render the decisions of their court ridiculous, and the judgment-seat a fountain of personal offence. They did not with ignorance combine arrogance." An Account of the Liabilities and Assets of the Bank of England, on the Average of the Quarter ending the 31st of December, 1633. Liabititips. Assets.

ANOTHER' BLOW AT- BRITISH SHIPPING —It is generally understood in the City of London that, to avoid the enormous charges that will become pay- able by British vessels trading to Canton, in conse- quence of the Consular Establishment which, under Whig patronage, is to be imposed upon that port, oir merchants are making arrangements for freighting American ships for the future conveyance of goods to and from China. One would have thought that our oivn shipowners hardly required this infliction, to complete the depreciation of their prospects. THE NAVY.—The.number of vessels compos- ing the British navy amounts to 557, carrying from I to 120 guns each, of different calibre of these 166 are in commission (including 20 Falmouth packets); the remainder building or in ordinary. The British navy employs, in time of peace, 20,000 seamen, and 12,000 royal marines. THE PERSIAN ARMY.—By recent accounts from the East Indies it appears that officers are to be sent from Bengal to assist in training the King of Persia's troops, a part of which are in future to be officered by Europeans, the whole under the com- mand of Brigadier Pasmore, of the Bengal army. It is stated that the Messrs. Rothschilds and Barings have resolved to establish a Bank, with a capital of two millions, in Canadabut in which of the two provinces is not known. PUBLIC CHARITIES.—The Lord Chancellor's se- cretary has addressed a letter to the trustees of various public charities, in which he states his lord- ship's desire to be informed whether they will be disposed to further, so far as lies in their power, a plan for the consolidation of the funds of all public charities throughout the kingdom, and the appropri- ation of them to the purpose of national educa- t*ion.Ilanchester Chroyticle. <.

XiLBUTE QF RESPECT.—A splendid salver, weighing 115 oz., was'presented to Dr. Taylor, M D. of Clifton, on Wednesday last, as a token of the high opinion entertained by his friends and patients of his professional ability, and also of his humanity in devoting a considerable portion of his time, for the benefit of the poor. MODESTY OF THE IRISH CATHOLICS-■■ \IR. Bindon Scott., the father-in-law of Mr. Maurice O Connell. claims a large sum of the million voted by Parliament to discharge arrears of tithes. It is said that many Roman Catholic tithe owners, who have refused to pay their own tithes to the clergy, have advanced similar claims.. r ASSAULT CASE.—The five partisans of Lord Durham, who committed a disgraceful assault upon Mr. Hernamaiv, the Editor of the Sew castle Journal, ■were found guilty upon an indictment at the Quarter Sessions, held last week, and sentenced to a penalty 501, each; to be imprisoned until paid. < POWNB —The Augsburgh Gazette" ot the 25th instant states that, according, to a statistical /account of the kingdom of Poland, for the year 1832, -the POPIllat-ior, then consisted of 3,914,665 souls; 'of which 1,933,390 were males, and 1,981,275 JfrnnaleV:—3,236,513 were Catholics; 106,986 of the Greek Church 177,806 Lutherans; 3,815 of the Heformed Church;. 384,031 Jews; and 5,568 ot vafious other-religious opinions- ^Warsaw con- tained 121,868 inhabitants, being 6^3 less than in 1821.- RAl^WAYS.-r-The j expense of constructing rail- ways are deceitful to the- uninitiated; E4,000 per mile has been set down- as the average cost of lay- ing a double set of tracks,; but ,Mr. Stephenson's estimate of that from London to, Birmingham averages £ 21,786 per mile. The annual expense of working a locomotive engine'on the Manchester railway was ealculated originally at f270. 12s. 10d.; but a,c- cording to Mr. Gfahame, of Glasgow £ 2,107. 14s. are actually expended for the purpose. These are t facts full of interest to those who are now embarking their property in this way.Leeds Intelligencer.
HEXIEW OF LIT Eli A TUli E.
HEXIEW OF LIT Eli A TUli E. "THE BRITISH MAGAZINE" FOR JANUARY.— J Turn 11 and T. Clerc Smith, Limdon- We have been much gratified in the perusal of this able publication, in which wp admire equally the excellent objects which it has in view, and the ability with which it is conducted. The British Magazine is a publication of recent origin, intended principally to concentrate, in unison with other in- teresting contributions, articles upon religious and ecclesiastical subjects. In this elevated walk of literature it has attained already a very high cha- racter and indeed no less can be expected irom the learning and talent of its numerous distinguished contributors. We regret that we are compelled at present to confine our extracts from it to the follow- ing, on Church Reform. After noticing a proposal of radical subversion of the Church Establishment, which is most impudently put forth by the "Christian Advocate," which is very obsequiously sanctioned by the Globe," and which afterwards Dr. Lush- ingtoB is represented at a public dinner to have said was in conformity to the views of his Majesty's Ministers, the Editor proceeds, with the following acute remarks These are subjects for serious consideration beyond all micsiion. The Standard, in one of those manv unasterjy | papers in which it handtes great questions, not on party, but on large philosophical views, pointed out the first of these extracts as all open declaration of war on the part ot the dissenters. It since states that it has received many disclaimers on the part of the respectable dissenters of the feelings expressed in the extract, and of all hostility to the established church The plain fact seems to be this this Magazine always maintained that there is a class of dis- 3enters who hold in entire abhorrence the violent and vulgar papers and societies which assume to be their re- presentatives—the Patriot, Christian Advocate, Society for Promotion of Ecclesiastical Knowledge,&c. &c. And from that class the letters in question came. Conscientious dis- senters cannot, if they love Christianity, at present wish for the fall of the church. There is one simple reason for this. Suppose the State church gone, and take the case of one of the many thousand parishes where there are only 'farmers, poor shop-keepers, and labourers living. Suppose the tithes gone from the clergyman, and disposed of in the most admirable manner which fancy can suggest, still they (under some other name) will be paid,—i. e. the farmer's expences will be just what they are now. Can he and the labourers afford, besides what they have to pay for, to pay for a minister'? It is notoriously impossible, or, in other words, whatever may be the case hereafter, to get rid of the church now wonld be to consign numberless parishes to itpin- tual destitution. Itcahnot, lie otherwise, simply because, let men be as disinterested as they wIH, amI, no doubt, hundreds of men would be found ready to suffer for their Master's they are men; and men who cannot eat must die, and food cannot be got without rtaoney. Now,conscientious dissenters know this, and whether they may thiuk a state church good or not, or whether they may entirely agree with the English church or nnt, they still allow that it teaches the truth in the main; and they had rather have the truth tatight by the church of England than not at all. But it is to be feared that this class is comparatively small. and the vulgar violence of the un-Christian Advocate Will find an echo but in too many bieasts. In a large por- tion of its realms di>sent is a political, not a religious busi- ness and even where it is not so, it is too often fanatical. From these two quarters, it cannot be doubted that we are to understand that year is declared! And we are told that it is to be war to the knife; that there is to be no rest till Babylon is destroyed, and pulled down utterly to the ground, And the admirable Morning Chronicle, of course, hounds on the d;>s of war, and is only too happy to hear its own Christian cry sounded from other mouths. But, let us ask, whence does it come ? It comes from a party who do not, when fairly brought to acccount, dare themselves to claim more than one-fourth of the population, and who, by very competent judges, are placed at one-sixth of it. But call them, as they call themselves, onefourlh, a calculation which comprises all the nominal as well as real partizans of dissent, what is it, then, that these moderate and decent persons say? Simply this, We, the fourth part, mean to dictate to yon the threo-Fourths You mean to have a church: we mean you shall not. To be sure this church has existed from time immemorial, and to be sure it gives Christian instruction to the people but we had rather they had none, and we have now got force enough (as you will be foolish enough not to stir yourselves or to act together, and we certainly shall) to beat you. By clamour and agi- tation, and by means of unhesitating falsehoods about our numbers and excellence, and your insignificance and base- ness, we shall persuade the country that we are the larger part, and that we ought to prevail." b Whether this eloquence and logic, as set forth by Messrs. Faithful, Gi;borne, Wilks, and Co iu the House of Com- mons, will prevail, remains to be seen. There is one point which it is a positive duty to bring before the friends of church, both there and elsewhere, which is, that they should beware of lightly passiug over details. The children of this world are wise, we know, in their genera- tion, and the dissenters know well enough that their tadies, at present, are to avoid all discussions in the gi-eat,beca-use direct motions to get rid of the established church just now would, probably, share the same fate as Mr. Faithful's. But when the Solicitor-General talks, as he did last session, of giving up church rates, did he talk in ignorance? Did he not know that this was really the question of an esta- blished church or not? And do not the dissenters know it too ? and do they not know, tb -At if they can get half-a dozen questions carried, really involving principles, tboti.11 people are careless enough not to notice it, the batds is fought?, If these things were in the minds of the friends of the Church, the danger would not be great, as far as the public or even the legislature (such as it is) goes; but when one considers certain other features of the case, the feeling is certainly not pleasant. Without imputing any bad motive at all, and, mostj of all, without accusing the government of any ill intentions towards the church, if left to its own dcvices, yet everyone knows the extent to which yielding to real clamour, and assuming the appearance of yielding to the popular voice, have gone. This is, indeed, a serious ground for apprehenrion. What Dr. Lusliington says is a matter of no sort of moment. Dr. L., no doubt, a humble rollover of the ministers, and 'nay talk about the radical reform of the church to please tnem t but, in the writer's opinion, they do Dr. h injustice, who, viwing his conduct with a very natural indignation, and feeling as every gentleman feels at the mixture of bad taste and in- gratitude which can induce a person who owes so much to the kindness of the church, to turn round and revile it, conceive that Dr. L. does all this because he knows that though the church has given much, the crown can give more. This is not the explanation. Any one who has watched Dr. L.*s speechis, will find in them always the same vehement tendency to extreme opinions, the same want of sober judgment. For many years his opinions, as given to the clergy, going upon fanciful theories, more than on precedent or experience, always led them to try ex- treme cases, and now the same Caste of mind (under the intlile-nee of dislike of the church) induces him to construe every act of Parliament, introduced toimprove the church, according to the theories to which his wish is father, so as to throw every possible impediment, in the way of those improvements. He was always a dangerous adviser of the church, and is now, in fact, one of its bitter, but, perhaps, least dangerous, enemies. This railing at the church, and this clamour for radical reform in it, however deplorable in taste end delicacy, is to be imputed to his impotence of temper and to his growing hatred of all institutions, and not to the wish to advance liizrself. 'J heS jlicitor-Generai's hostility, which is on calculation, looks far worse." ( To be continued.)
IMPORTANT TO FARMERS.—We have before us, the draft of a bill intended to be brought under the consideration of Parliament -in the forthcoming ses- sion, and which if passed into law, will make it im- perative, that every kind of corn, grain, pulse, seed,; meal, and flour, shall he sold by weight throughout the United Kingdom; and the weight so employed should be the pound avoirdupois, ascertained and established by a certain act passed in the fifth year of the reign of his late Majesty, King George the Fourth, entitled an act for ascertaining and establishing uniformity of weights and measures. The draft of the bill also coutaius provisions, that corn returns are to be made of the weight of nominal bushel a memorandum is to be given with the sale of all corn exceeding a cer- tain weight, to be decided upon by a committer-, and inspectors may call for the production of such a memo- randum, which must be produced under a penalty; inquisitions may be held by magistrates at quarter sessions, for ascertaining rents payable in grain or malt. &c. in England, under the oaths of twelve sub- stantial freeholders, and the sheriff's depute of each county may summon juries for the same object in Scotland Chester Courant. BIUSTOL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETy-A public meeting was held at Bristol on Thursday week, for the formation of an Agiicultural Society. A large portion, notjonly of the Agriculturists of the neighbour- ing counties, but of the most respectable merchants and professional gentlemen of Bristol, took an active part in the proceedings. After several very able addresses had been delivered an Association was formed, the Committee of which comprehends, besides the Mayor and the Dean of Bristol, several gentle- men of the first standing in agriculture, commerce and the learned professions. SCIENTIFIC INSTRUCTION IN MINING —A pro- ject is on foot for forming an Institution in Bristol, for the diffusion of instruction on this very important subject, on scientific principles. The value of such an Institution must be universally admitted and the great mineral district of Glamorgan, Slonmouth, and Brecon, the importance of it must be most strongly felt. Enormous sums have been sunk in fruiil-ess exertions, only from the want of knowledge of" the geological indications of mineral productions." INCENDIARism.-The crime of incendiarism ap- pears to be lamentably on the increase. Scarcely a provincial paper reaches town, in which some fresh instance of this«trrcious practice is not recorded.
GLEANINGS. THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON'S UMBRELLA.-Attl". Ladies Bazaar, which was held in L6ndon last sum- mer, and which was patronized by her Majesty, the Duke strolled in,and, although a very fine day, with his umbrella in his hand, he wespt up to the Countess of -'s stall, and said, as 1 must go and speak to her Majesty 1 wish you would take care of my umbrella." "Oh t by all means," was her Ladyship's reply, pray give it me." This done, away went his Grace, presently came up a plain country gentleman, supposed to be Mr. D > member for Gl- and the Countess addressed him and said, cannot my s'all tempt you r" 1 am afraid," he replied, "you have nothing very useful there;" "Indeed I have," her Ladyship said, "I will sell you the Duke of Wellington's umbrella but I expect a good price for it; nothing under ten pounds." Although not famous for extra expense, still the wish to possess a relic of the greatest man of his age predominated, the money was paid, and the happy purchaser now declares he would not sell it for its weight in gold. NAVAL HERoISM.-We have heard an anecdote (which we believe to be authentic,) of a gallant and distinguished naval officer, who was so dreadfully wounded in battle as to have been most properly remunerated with the honourable distinction of a f Knight-commander of the Bath and a double pension, f going one day to the Secretary of the Admiralty to request that his name might be put down as a can- didate for exploring the north-west passage. The Secretary attempted to dissuade him from entertain- ing such a thought, and, alleging his many wounds, from which he was still suffering great inconve- nience, the loss of one eye, and the sympathetic affection of the other, stated the great inconvenien- ces to which he would be exposed from the extreme cold, and the probability of being shut up for a whole winter in the ice and he thought that these argu- ments had convinced him of his unfitness for so perilous an undertaking but on leaving the room, the candidate for glory turned round, and with great emphasis observed, My ancestor perished honour- ably in the ice, and I think it very hard that I should be denied the possibility of sharing the same fate such is the thirst after fame, that last infirmity of noble rnind-Quarterty lieview. HENRY VIII. AND NICE PUDDINGS.—The building formerly rented by the African Company, was anciently part of the dissolved priory of the Holy Trinity, Aldgate but on account of Mrs. Corn- Wallis having gratified the appetite of Henry VIII. by presenting him some fine puddings, he granted this and other tenements to her and her heirs.

EDWARD SOMERSET MARQUIS OF WORCESTER.— It is well known that we are indebted for the tirst hint of that valuable mechaniaM rontrivance the steam engine, to the Scantlings of Inventions," first published by this nobleman in 1663, and since frequently reprinted. In the dedication of this work to the members of both houses of Parliament, he informs them, that he had already sacrificed six or seven hundred thousand pounds in his experiment, a sum so large as to astonish all readers who are acquainted with the poverty to which he was redu- ced by the profuse assistance he (and his father before him) had rendered to the royal cause. This account, however, is cleared up by the following letter, from which we may conclude that he raised a considerable sum from his friends and others by dividing his project into joint shares. It is addressed to Chrisopher Copley, Esq. a colonel in the army of the north, under General Fairfax, and is now pub- lished for the first time from the original manu- script. On the back rs written, in Col. Copley's hand, My Lord of Worcester's letter about my share in his engine."

SoMXAMBUUSM.—ThefoHowmg remarkable in- stance of somnambulism is given by the Augsburgh Gazette Dresden was the threatre of a melan- choly spectacle on the 20th instant. As early as seven in the evening, a female was seen walking on the roof of one of the loftiest houses in the city, apparently occupied in preparing some ornament as a Christmas present. The house stood as it were; alone, being much higher than those adjoining it and to draw her from her perilous situation was impossible. Thqusands of spectators had assembled ibIL in the stre, ts. It was discovered to be a handsome young girl, nineteen years of a'ge, the daughter of a master baker, possessing a small independence bequeathed to her by her mother. She continued her terrific promenade for hours at times sitting on the parapet and dressing her hair. The police came to the spot, and various means of preservation were resorted to. In a few minutes the street was very thickly strewn with straw beds were called for from the house, but the heartless father, influ- enced by the step-mother of the girl refused them. Nets were suspended from the balcony of the first floor, and the neighbours fastened sheets to their windows all this time the poor girl was walking in perfect unconsciousness, sometimes gazing at the moon, and at others singing or talking to herself. Some persons succeeded in getting on the roof, but dared not approach her, for fear of the consequences if they awoke her. Towards eleven o'clock, she ap- proached the very verge of the parapet, leaned for- wards, and gazed upon the multitude beneath. Every one felt that the moment of the catastrophe had ar- rived she rose up, however, and returned calmly to the window by which she had got out; when she saw there were lights in the room, she uttered a piercing shriek, which was re-echoed by thousands below, and fell dead into the street. The scene that followed cannot be described. 1 he city on the following day was full of sorrow. The police and the father are both blamed for having left a light in the chamber. The citizens say that the police are too officious in meddling with their private affairs; they are violent against the father, as he is accused of having at- tempted to poison his first wife, and of rejoicing at the melancholy fate of her child, as he will now in- herit her property."
THE 1ROX THAUE.
THE 1ROX THAUE. Iron, (it has been wett remarked in the Lyons me- morial to the French minister of trade, on the subject of a Change in the Tariff,) is more than a raw material."—It is a raw material necessary for the the preparation and manufacture of nearly every other; and when we see iu England its extensive etnp'o\ment ill tools, implements of husbandry, and machinery,—when we see it converted into pillars for supporting the galleries of our churches, theatres, and other public builiiiigs,-wlien we see it forming our fences, ballustrades, and g-ates,- when we see it in the innumerable water and gaspipes which traverse our towns and cities,—when we find it forming our rail-roads and bridges,—in short, when we observe the multiplied purposes of convenience, elegance, and stability to which it is applied, we cannot but admit that its abundance and consequent cheapness is one of the great causes of our national prosperity, and of our progress in the useful arts. From the facilities of our rail-roads and canal communications we are enabled to bring to market about 6 or 700,000 tons a year, of an average value of perhaps 4,000,000/. ster- ling, while France, with all her prohibitive duties, has never manufactured more than 370,000 tons. or little more than one half of our production. As the popu- lation of France is nearly double that of England, and the quantity of iron prepared does not exceed one half, it follows that we consume iron in a four-fold ratio to the consumption of our neighbours. Yet by excessive prohibitory duties the abundance of one country is not allowed to balance the scanty supply of another. The duty imposed upon the ton of English iron, if imported into France, is nol less than Ill, while the article itself ill France does not exceed that amount. Thus France pays for the 1110- nopoly of forests and mines on her supply of less than 400,000 tons of iron, about 4,500,0001. while England could atTord the same quantity of the metal for the half of that sum. Considering, however, the manner in which the Councits.were composed, con- sidering that the Sovereign, Ministers, and Deputies in France are proprietors of forests, rendered profit- able mainly by the sale of chat-coal for smelting iron, we could expect little immediate reduction in the protecting duties. It was proposed by the Council General of Manufactures that the Tariff should be re- duced 10 francs, or 8s. a ton for five successive years; < r in other words, 21. out of 111. by the year i839 Thiswiil probably be all the extent of the reduction,aud yet the French government has recommended a great system ofrail-road. to be constructed at the public expense, of this high priced material With respect to coal, the French Tariff is equally opposed to the national interest. The duty now is 9s. 2d. a ton on Eng'ish coal, 2s. 6d. on Belgic, and about lid. on P. ussian. There seemed no disposition in the majority of the" General Councils" to reduce this duty effectually, though they all seemed to agree that coal used for steam navigation should be per- mitted to be imported duty free Erening Mail.
LETTERS FROM ITALY.
LETTERS FROM ITALY. ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS, &c: I am truly rejoiced that the kind solicitations of hospitable English friends have induced me to spend my Christmas at Naples, for [ have had the gratification of beholding an eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which continued to emit flames and lava, or streams of liquid fire, down the fur- rowed sides of the mountain for three days. It was an awful but a splendid sight. There was no extraordinary noise, except about twelve o'clock one night, when a vast quantity of stones were hurled furiously into the air. On the fourth day a dense column of smoke issued from the crater, and extended its murky form over nine or ten miles of the country around, the effect of which was prodigiously fine, when contrasted with the blue, serene, and bright canopy of heaven- Since I last wrote, a nc,,v Opera has been brought out at St. Carlo, called Irene, ol' L, Assedio di Messina (The Siege of Messina), the music by Paccini; but it did not prove at- tractive, although it had the puwerful aid of Malibran, Iteina, David, and Labiache. It was only performed three times. Nothing goes down with the Neapolitans like Rossini; his La Gazza Ladra was the piece chosen on the evening of the Queen Mother's butkday, on which occasion there were seven hundred and fifty wax torches (some of them five feet high) within the walls .of the Theatre? Malibran was admirable as the persecuted but innocent Ninetta the observation made was that she sang like an angel aud acted like a goddess My good master hablache continues his kind attention towards me we often meet at evening parties, which, by the bye, are so unlike those given in Eugland that a brief description of them may not prove uniuteresting to you. Just before Madame Masi left Naples she invited all the principal singers, &c. belonging to the Opera House to a Soiree Musicale. There were lunt also a number of distin- guished dilettanti and several professional persons, among whom were Signur N. and your humble servant. We had much good music a^course, but we also had a most merry evening, for •exftpal Italian Gentlemen dis- played their talents in a variety of ways for the eutcrtaiu- ment of the company. I had the honor of singing several things wiih Malibran, Labiache, Calvarolla (a great favourite of the King's), &c. but you will be surprised when I tell you that Mazzinghi's comic duet of When a little farm uie keep, sung by Malibran and myself, carried all before it, owing to the very clever and bril- liant manner in which the bewitching cantratrice executed the do re mi passage and when the duet was repeated she sang the florid divisions in a totally different manner, to the astonishment and delight of the enraptured com- pany. Naples is generally annoyed by fellows going about lIJaking hideous noises with a sort of bagpipe. In the course of the evening a couple of these grated discordantly on our cars, which caused the prima donna to construct one of a novel [plan. She requested Labiache to sustain F below, myself B flat, others the harmonic intervals up to B in alt, and each to place his linger on the side of his nose. This formed a most capital drone, while she sang through her nose in a squeaking sort of tone that produced the most laughable etfect imaginable, particularly when we all sunk oar voices gradually, as if the wmd was exhausted in the bellows. And this burlesque exhibition originated with her who represents to the life the gentle Desdemona, the heart- broken Giulietta, the simple Ninetta, and the superb It TSace You will be glad to hear that my English friends will patronize a Concert which they urge me to give at the great Fondo Theatre. I shall have the powerful aid of most of the eminent vocalists here also that of De Beriot on the violin. Among the English songs the favourites are, Dr. Arne's When forced from dear Hebe, Lord Burghersh's liendermeer Stream, Moore's Oft in the stilly night, and Norah, the pride of Kildare. Neukomm's Midnight Review is greatly admired, although it is German. I must give you an idea of the manner the dead are treated at Naples. When an individual in pretty good circumstances dies the body is placed on a couch, but not in a coffin, near the door of a pub- lic shop or room, engaged for the purpose, which is hung with black and lighted with torches. The people as they ap- proach, kneel down, mutter an Ave Maria or two and walk on. When a Priest or a soldier dies the body is carried through the public streets on a couch, decorated in the most fantastic way, with its hands uplifted a black velvet cap is placed on the head, and a bunch of flowers fixed in the mouth. The pall-bearers and a numerous train are dressed in the most frightful manner. They have wlkite hoods over their heads and faces, with a couple of holes opposite the eyes, each bearing a lighted torch, and carry- ing a large Friar's hat under his arm. Of course I shall remain here to see a little of the Carnival, which com- mences on the 17th of Jauua-ry. The holidays begin at Naples nine days preceding Christmas; and I understand it is a common custom for the bagpipe-tormentors, accom- panied by a horrid noisy hautboy-player, to halt before the statues and paintings of the Madonna, of which there are hundreds, to charm her with their mellifluous strains, with a view of invoking a happy delivery on Christinas day! Although fourteen hundred miles away I shall think of you on that day, ana say with MOORE- Where'er my path lies, be it gloomy or bright, My SOUL, happy friends shall be with you that night; Shall join in your revels, your sports, and your wiles, And return to me, beaming all o'er with your smiles! Too blest if it tells me that, 'mid the gay cheer, Some kind voice had murmur'd I WISH HE WERE HERE. J. 0 PARRRY- Naples, Dec. 12, 1833.
A NEW MART.—Arrived at Liverpool on Christ- mas Day the American ship st. Louis, Captain Storey, from Natchez, a town on the Mississippi, 300 miles above New Orleans. Her cargo is 935 bales of cotton and she is the first vessel that ever loaded at Natchez for Europe. IRISH ABSENTEEism.-The manifest of the Lord Blayney steamer, which was so recently shipwrecked near Liverpool, has been published, and affords a fair specimen of the nature of the usual exports from Ire- land. Exclusive of the crew and passengers, consist- ing of 47 human beings, all of whom perished, the cargo of the ili-tated vessel was as follows :-5644 casks of butter; 106 bags of flour; 26 bags of oat- meal 37 bags of oats 8 bags of wheat; 2 bales of linen 20 crocks of butter six boxes of eggs; 4 bags of potatoes; 11 hampers and bags of fowl; 2 hog sheads of oysters 13 boxes and bags of quills; 609 pigs. Now, taking this to be, as we believe it to be, a fair sample of the usual exports from Ireland, what a picture does it present. Whi'e of what was the staple manufacture of Ireland we have only two bales, the whole of this cargo, with the exception of a few quills (plucked possibly from the hampers and bags of fowl,) consists of articles of human sustenance, brought from a country the bulk of the population of which do not so much as know the taste of any but one of the articles there enumerated and this to pay the rents of absentee landlords, the enormous amounts of which keep in poverty and destitution, or drive into exile, the cultivators of the soiL-Morning Herald.
SCHIPTURE ILLUSTRATIONS'.—No. 26. 0 II HEB. xii. 23, 24.- But ye are come unto the city of the Living God and to an innumerable company of angels." And to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant." "Imagine to yourselves two friends, dear as their oN,. ii souls to other; these, both en- gaged in enterprises of the utmost difficulty, in distant parts of the world each exercised with dangers and hardships, for the service of his country and, with a vast e.xpence of blood and toil, succeeding so well, that no marks of honour are thought too much for them. Imagine these two friends, after long absence, thus laden with conquest and adorned with laurels, meeting and finding each other just as they could wish what joyful welcomes, what mutual rejoicings, what reciprocal fruition of their past labours, and pre- sent triumphs, must such an interview create! And when you have carried this image as high as you can go, and multiplied it to ten thousand times as much, by supposing ten thousand such cases; know that such, and much more than this, are the mutual gratulations of the blessed in Heaven As much more, as the cause in which they suffered is nobler; as much more, as the enemies they have vanquished are stronger; as much more, as the reward for their service is more bountiful, more lasting, more unenvied; in a word, as much more, as these mystical members of Christs' body are united with a more entire and disinterested affection, and consequently more transported with the gallant actions and successes, and glories of each other, than it is possible for the sincerest and. most generous friends on earth to be. And this love, this huma- nity it is, that qualifies them to join in that inex- pressible felicity." "F STANHOPE. THE EPIPHANY. Besides the inestimable blessing which this festival commemorates, the giving light to the Gentiles," St. Chrysoslom mentions in his time, bat as a principal cause of the respect paid to it by the Church, that our blessed Savionr was sup- posed to have been, upon it, baptized in the River Jordan by John. And there was an ancient tra- dition, that, upon this day also, our Saviour is supposed to have given the first proof of his Divine Power, by turning water into nine, at the marriage of Cana in Galilee. STANHOPE. Whence the second Lessors appointed for the day.—Luke 3-John 2.
THE CHURCH AND I)ISSENTEtfS. flolv long would Protestant dissent of any description have been tolerated in this country, had the Church of Rome not been replaced by that of England ? Let the Dissenters take this assurance, that if they seek a strong barrier against the preten- sions of Popery, such a defence can be no where found so secure and impregnable as in the Epis- copal Church of England.(Extract from a lealling article of the Evening Mail, January 6, 1834.") The Bishop of St. Asaph has, within the last few weeks, furnished from sixty to seventy poor families, in or near St. Asaph, with blankets and articles of wearing apparel. Subscriptions have been made to furnish the necessitous with sixty gallons of soup twice a week. The Denn of St. Asaph has presented the Rev. R. II. Williams, to the Perpetual Curacy of Grendon Bishop, Herefordshire- The Rev. Francis Cole has been instituted, by the Bishop of Exeter, to the Vicarage of St. Feock, Cornwall. The Archbishop of York has directed a CUTate in his diocese, who refused to read the burial service over the body of a child of a Baptist Dis- senter. to uerform the service in future, in all cases wherd the person to be interred had re- ceived baptism from any Christian minister. Li]3LRALITY.-The Lovd Bisbop of Bangor, and Col. Wynne, of (Jartiifwin, have each given 101- to be divided among the poor of the parish of Denio and Llannor. The Venerable Archdeacon Corbett, at h's tithe audit, on Thursday last, returned ten per cent. to the tithe renters. THE CLERGY OF THE PROVINCE OF YORK.— On Monday last, a meeting of the Clergy of this parish, was held in the parish church, at Leeds, the Vicar in the chair, when an address to our Venerable diocesan, the Archbishop of York, of a similar tendency to that lately* sent to the Archbishop of Canterbury, and expressive of a determination to support the Protestant Es- tablished Church, was unanimously adopted, and has since been very numerously si-ii,ed.- Leeds Intelligencer. 0 On Tuesday, July 30, 1833, a Missionary meeting was held in the Church of a parish near Salisbury. A case was in consequence transmitted to Dr. Lushington on the subject, who gave it as his opinion, that the meeting was illegal, srnce it was held without any authority from the Crown or the Diocesan," and that the parties convening and at- tending the meeting had committed an offence, having without lawful authority used the Church for proceedings, for which neither the Incumbent nor any other person had a right to apply it." A suit in the Ecclesiastical Court was accordingly directed against the parties principally engaged in the offence but was withdrawn on the assurance of the Lord Bishop ot the Diocese that he disapproved of such meetings when thus held, and that by imparting this opinion to the parties, he would prevent the recurrence of the offence.
VICE CHANCELLOR'S COURT. ..
VICE CHANCELLOR'S COURT. Sir E. Sudden appeared on behalf of the relators upon an information filed by the Attorney-General, praying a declaration of the Court that the trusts of a charity founded by the Dame Sarah Hewley, in the year 1704, ought never to have been, and cannot con- tinue to be, partaken of by persons professing Uni- tarian principles-that they belong only to the general body of dissenters who believe in the doctrine of the Trinity; that those trustees who had managed the trust being of Unitarian principles might be removed; and that the annual sum of 80/. which had been paid to Mr. Wellbeloved, as the officiating minister to the charity might be discontinued. The learned counsel argued with great force, that the founders of the charity believed in origiual siu and the atonement; and that. therefore, they would have shrunk with horror from the appropriation now made of the charity. The ar- guments continued for several days. The Vice- Chancellor, after having referred to the wills of Sir John and Ludy Hewley, said that it was quite clear that they firmly believed in the divinity of Christ. It was evident, that when Lady Hewley used the terms, Godly preachers of Christ's Holy Gospel" in the deed, she intended that the bounty of her charity should be only enjoyed by persons who believed in the divinity of Christ. His Honour then re- ferred to one of the books of the Unitarians, pub- lished by their society at Manchester, and which they called a new version of the Scriptures. It appeared to him that it was compiled in order to mislead ignorant persons who might read it. No person, having the slightest knowledge of the Greek text, could have o falsely and erroneously translated many passages in this new version of the Scriptures as they called it. In illustration, his Honour referred to the first Epistle of St. Paul to the Hebrews, and comparing the Greek text with the translation in this book, said that it appeared to him from those passages that they did not mean to give a new and improved version of the Scriptures but to fetter down the mind of the reader, and to substitute a creed instead of a translation. A more arbitrary, silly, and false translation of the Scriptures he had never inet with. No persons holding such opinions as the publishers and subscribers to this book could be considered to be the persons whom Lady Hcwley, in giving this charity, designated as" Godly preachers of Christ's Gospel." He was, therefore, of opinion, that Mr. Wellbeloved and the other defendants were not objects of Lady Hewley's charity, and the court could not allow the charity any longer to be adminis- tered by persons who denied the Divinity of Christ and the doctrine of original sin. There should, there- fore, be a decree to remove Mr. Wellbaloved and the trustees from the future admiuistratiou of this fund. As Sir Edward Sugden did not intend to ask for costs, the costs of the parties should be paid out of the funds.

IFALLING IN OF A QUA RR Y,I…
I FALLING IN OF A QUA RR Y, I In the steep rocks which enclose the river I near Saumer, there are extensive quarries of stone, which run back till they come nearly the church of Parnay. Inconsequence of some buildings, a great demand for stone was created, aIT the workmen in order to obtain the supply, have ,ate had the imprudence to cut down the pillars that ha been left to support the roof, themselves ruo»lB» every moment the risk of being crushed by the fal in of the vault. This happily did not take place, bdt, about two in the morning of one day last week,. inhabitants were awakened by a terrible report as > of an earthquake, aud when the light of day enable" •hem to seek for the cause, they found that the 1uar^ -i had given way, leaving.a chasm of upwards of 4<Jo yards^ wide and at least 20 yards deep, carrying1 with it oue half of the burying ground and part of adjoining enclosures, and exposing to the liorrol", struck inhabitants, the scattered members aud i«0' (ilated bodies of their buried relations and frieD"*» mingled with the whitened bones of their forefather^ and, on the torn sides of the cavern, numerous cotf^ were still suspended, some of them projecting ha' way from the crumbling earrh, and ready to fall io}° the abyss. The church remains standing, and a* foot a small house belonging to a peasant, which become entirely isolated on a point, bounded on one side by the steep and rugged bank of the river, f* least 50 yards high, and on the other by the ne*r-n*a"* chasm. The 'peasant has. lost by this tremeud*>°8 event the whole of his farming stock and stacks of forage, and fourteen barrels of wine—in the entire of his little property. The concussion °r air occasioned by the suddenness of the shock was great, that a heavy waggon and a barret of lees *"ere carried to a distance of 50 yards, a thick wall blown down, and some lighter articles were ortet'War II found 130 yards from their places. Fortunately pot a single life was lost.-French Paper. j
BURGLARY.- litirsday week, two men at. tempted to break iuto the dwelling house of Sterne, at Partis College, near this city. A re**r of five guineas has been offered by the trustees oi that excellent establishment, to be paid on of the offenders, and it is their determination to pla< a nightly guard on the premises.—This daringattelll!e to get into Mrs. Sierne's chambei window, was ta^e by means of a ladder, between the hours of t«elye and one. After breaking open the door, but f°rt0. uate'y a chain prevented their entering, they &e from the spot, as Mrs- Sterne, with wonderful preseuce of mind, closed and fastened the window-shutters 00 perceiving the man at the window. She succeeded iO alarming the inmates of the College, when they foutd the men had left the ladder, which has since beeJl owned by a man iu the neighbourhood, as stolen (1'0:/ his premises. The next morning the footsteps °* three men were traced from the house through the garden which lies between the College and the Lo«et Bristol Road.-Bath Journal.
