POETRY. UR. HENRY BRUGES TRANSLATION OF "THE DRUIDS." We are quite at a loss to make a selection from this very elegant and classical translation, the highly polished lines and harmtfniousmetre ofwhich, remind us of Pope and the Augustan age of English verse. Plennydd, Alawn, and Gwron, the three Bards who first arranged the rules of their order, are sup- posed to assemble at the altar-stone at Dyffryn- Golych (St. Nicholas.) We cannot refrain from giving the address of the two former-Plennydd, to I his IVIaker, and Alawn's, to the Sun. Sing, oh my muse, in loftiest numbers sing, The might, the glory of th' Eternal King, Hymn the Great God, the Heavenly name adore, In strains sublime thy heartfelt homage pour Praise him the First. the Last, in daring flight, Whose throne is Heav'n, whose robes the living light! Oh Thou, the good inscrutable, whose hand Sheds endless blessings o'er this favour d land, Who look.t on man. in soul like purity Say. all-pervading Essence from on High, What hand can paint the glory of thy reign, What words thy peerless attributes explain! No earthly hand, no mortal words can raise Thy image, worthy of eternal praise Thy wond'rous gifts of life, of health and food Involve o il minds in dark incertitude; Our daily sins, thy daily blessings prove Thy justice temper'd with benignest Love We pause, we wonder and confers at last, Thy nature far all human knowledge past; More than our thoughts can grasp, our pray'rs demand, Flows from thy bounteous soul and liberal hand.

Whence doth thy goraeous race of splendour run? What realms of light have given thy brightness birth, Thou grace and glory of the sprouting Earth ? Whate'er thou art, great Sovereign of rbe Skies, From thee what Endless.benefits arise Thy smile, glad harbinger of warmth and ease, Gives sportive measures to the jocund breeze, Gives to the mead a vest of livelier green, With gayer colors decks the woodland scene. Soon, did gaunt darkness rule the hapless plain, Nature would perish 'neath his withering reign But, beauteous Light, thy generating rays To nature growth, to man give length of days; From thy bright throne, alike o'er earth and sea Thou shed'st thy warmth, and nature lives m thee From thee derives her life-inspiring breath.

Composed by lIlrs Hemans, a few days before her death, and dedicated to her Brother. How many blessed groups this hour are bending Through England's primrose meadow paths their way Toward spire and tower, midst shadowy elms ascending, Whence the sweet chimes proclaim the ballowed day. The halls, from old heroic ages grey, Pour their fair children forth; and ham leu low, With whose thick orchard blooms the soft winds play, Send out their inmates in a happy flow, Like a freed vernal stream. I may not tread With them those pathways—to the feverish bed Of sickness bound-yet oh my GOD! I bless Thy mercy, that with Sabbath peace hath filled My chastened heart, and all its throbbings stilled To one deep calm of liveliest thankfulness. -Blackwood. LINES FOR A SMITH'S SHOP.

SCRIPTURE lLLUSTRATlONS.~Ko.Qb. (From Hartley's Researches in Greece.) ISAIAH xl. 6, 7.—"Ail flesh is grass, and all the goodlities-i thereof is as the flower of the field: the grass wilhereth, the flower fadeth; because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass." The very affecting images of Scripture, which compare the short lived existence of man to the decay of the vegetable creation, are scarcely un- derstood in this country. The verdure is per- petual in England. It is difficult to discover a time when it can be said The grass wilhereth. But let the traveller visit the beautiful Plain of Smyrna, or any other part of the East, in the month of May, and revisit it towards the end of June, and he will perceive the force and beauty of these allusions. In May, an appearance of fresh verdure and, of rich luxuriance everywhere meets the eye the face of nature is adorned with a carpet of flowers and herbage of the most elegant kind. But a month or six weeks subse- quently, how changed is the entire scene! The beauty is gone j the grass is withered the flower is faded a brown and dusty desert has taken place of a delicious garden. It is. doubtless to this rapid transformation of nature that the Scriptures compare the fate of man. 2 KINGS iii. 11.—Here is Eltsha, the son of Shaphat, which poured water on the hands of Elijah." The Oriental method of washing is universally different from that practised in the West. No- where is water previously poured into a basin but the servant pours water, from a pitcher, upon the hands of his master. The custom of washing hands before dinner prevails also to this day. The servant goes round to all the guests, with a pitcher and a vessel to receive the water falling from the hands, and performs the office here attributed to Elisha. The same service is re- peatedwhen the repast is ended.
LITERARY NOTICES. .&. "VALPY'S LIFE OF POPE." The Third Edition of Mr Valpy's Life of Pope sustains the high reputation of its precursors. It con- tains the "Dunciad," the Pastorals," the Mes- siah," and the "Thebais." The Dunciad" has been so well supplied with notes, both by Pope himself and by Warburton, that little was left for the present editor to elucidate. The note, however, in which Dr. Croly sums up the whole life of Bentley, is a fine spe- cimen of graphic skill, of eloquent rebuke, and of sound moral feeling. Dr. Croly, speaking of Bentley, says he was- ™aD» like Pope himself, holding a high intellectual rank but, like Pope, incurring perpetual hostility by his perpetual contenaptforthe feelings of hisinferiors. Beutley's career is worthy of record, if for no other purpose than as a warning against his habit of scorn. With great talents, with extensive fame, and with remarkable good fortune in his pursuit of official honors, he contrived to turn all his advantages into personal vexation. Obtaining at an early age the important and opulent office of Master of trinity College, Cambridge, he made it a bed of thorns l quarrel with its society. Acknowledged ?s the first Grecian of his day, his arrogance provoked a uni- versal determination to resist his authority and his ltllsms were either burlesqued or decried to the close of his life. With the highest distinctions of the Church open to hIs talents, and eagerly solicited by his ambition, his personal bitterness constantly raised some new obstacle, which thwarted him on the very verge of possession. ainful^as this life must have been to any man; to tley s irritable, haughty, and ungovernable spirit, it must have been one of restless torture. If there could be an additional suffering, it must have existed in the con. sciousness that it was altogether the work of his own 1a i 3, H« breathed only in an atmosphere of personal and public quarrel. His first step on all occasions was hat which common sense and human feeling would adopt he last; he plunged into law; his life may be pronounced one long litigation; and he was equally memorable and (lisgraced by the vindictive folly of carrying on six actions at Westmrnster at a time. The natural result was felt in .R, ? 'ruct'°n of all his legitimate objects, in thfe waste o his literary existence, and in the pangs of literary re- taliation. The last forty years of his life, with the excep- tionofthe able answer to Collins, produced nothing that added to his fame, and for nearly ten of those years he was penally suspended from the Mastership of his College. Yet such was the power of his mind, or tho accuracy ot his original erudition, that he remained to the last at the head of British scholarship, and acknowledged through Europe as the most profound living master of ancient criticism. Still Hugeous, daring, and haughty, he asserted his supremacy over all the learned names, of bis day and at eighty died, admired, feared, and Jiated by the whole commonwealth of literature."
H. B.'s LAST. The last sketches of H. B. are satires pregnant with sound sense as well as rich humour. "The Modem Orpheus" and "I Sindbad carried away by the Rockite," exhibit in characters of -painful truth the degraded subjection of Lord John Russell and his party to O'Connell, who some. times conquers them by blarney," and sometimes by intimidation. The sketch called "A Fair Game" may rouse some whom no arguments addressed to the intellects merely can touch. Lord John, who is backed by O'Connell, is playing the game vulgarly T Cockshying." He has already knocked down the East India Company and the Church the corporations are tottering, and half way to the ground the only remaining stumps bear upon them »f* Ee!hS a"d,th,* crownj and, by the direct aim which the stick-holder is taking thnr* seems the fairest' chance that these also will bite the dust: or, to use the more elegant phraseology of the Irish superintendent ot the,Playy « the old boy will be dope nicely. —Evening Mail.

TRIAL OF THE WOLVERHAMPTON RIOTERS.-— -Between twenty and thirty persons were brought up on Saturday week, before Francis Twemlow, Esq., and a bench of magistrates, at Stafford, charged with having been concerned in throwing stones at the military during these riots. The worthy chair- man sentenced them respectively to six, five four, three, and two months' hard labour. Several had been previously discharged on their own recogni- zances, and the bill was ignored in respect to one man (Edward Silvey) for throwing at the military at Wolverhampton, the principal witness being too ill to attend and give evidence before the Graiad Jury- THE LATE COLLIERY EXPLOSION AT WALLSEND. -The jury epallnelle to investigate the cause of the recent awtul explosion at WalUend have finished their labours. That the death of the unfortunate people was accidental there cannot be the shadow of a doubt, and we are equally ready to admit that skill the most consummate was displayed in the method of ventilating this dangerous pit. It is also satisfactorily proved that, the nune was properly inspected by the mauagers d it on the very morning of the calamitous occurrence; but another question, slightly adverted to by the Coroner, anses out-of the particularly dan- gerous character of the Bensham Sedm at this colliery. It has been admitted by Mr. Buddie himself, that the average flow of inflammable air froui only a twenty- fourth portion of the working parts of tire. mine is no less than eleven hogsheads per minute. The amazing quantity of explosive matter, thus generated, is con- veyed along the drift and up the shaft by metal pipep, and is in a perpetual state of combustion at a con- siderable height above the surface of the "round. This artificial crater emits a flame so extensive and vivid as to illuminate, when darkness overspreads the land, the surrounding country to a considerable extent; and it appears to us that it would be equally practicable, by the aid of the Davy Lamp and Mr Buddie's scientific system of ventilatiou and probably with as much safety to human life, to explore even the bowels of Mount Etna or Vesuvius.—Newcastle Journal.
I ALARMING RIOTS IN LIVERPOOL—MILI- TARY CALLED OUT. On Monday and Sunday this town was thrown into the utmost consternation, in conscqucnce of one of those dis- graceful outrages taking place anaongst the lower class of Irish, arising out of their religious disputes, which so frequeutty occur in Ireland, and the populous towns of England,on the anniversary of the battle of the Boyne, when (as in the present instance) several lives are gene- rally lost. It appears that Sunday, the 12th, being the anniversary of this event, a report was industriously circu lated by the mischievous and ruffianly portion of the lower class of Roman Catholics, that the persons styling them- selves orangemen, who belong to various lodges in the town, intended to Willk in procession through the streets, although nofsuch a proceeding was resolved upon by the orangemen. In consequence of this rumour, the .Roman Catholics deter- mined to coalesce, and raise a mob for the purpose of counteracting the supposed views of the orangemen, and, on the evening of Sunday, having previously armed them. selves with bludgeons, pokers, daggers, pistols, and other aiticies of offence capable of being converted into a weapon, they dispersed to different parts of the town, and congregated in groups in the streets and near to the public bouses where the orangemen were likely to meet. They then commenced au indiscriminate attack upon all persons leaving suspected house. The cowardly outrages began first in Ben Johnson-street, and from thence the word was passed by the ruffians to Great Crosshall-stieet, Vau-x lial I- road, and Park-lane, until the most populous parts of the borough were at one instant plunged into a vortex of confusion and riot, which almost defies description. Women, to their shame be it spoken, although sisters of the sod, were as actively en- gaged in the work of destruction as the men, and were seen encouraging their husbands ar.d children to commit mur- der, by horribly exhorting them not to desist until they had i' waded knee deep" in the oraugemen's blood. In Ben John. son-street, a mob of about three hundred persons congre- gated simultaneously to rescue a prisoner from the custody of a watchman, and the latter was obliged to By, covered with bruises, leaving his prisoner in their hands. The Crosshall-street mob, having demolished the vyindows of Mr Pennington, a publican, who was said to harbour orangemen, and committed other violence, joiued that-in Ben Johnson-street, and the whole posse of villains pro- ceeded together along Vaunball Road, chasing the watch- man who had just escaped, and uttering the most shocking imprecations against their opponents, and shouting Tea pounds for th head of an orangeman!" A short time before this, some of the rioters had been lodged in the Vauxhtill Bridewell, aed when the mob arrived there, they knocked at the door, and demanded the prisoners, threaten- ing, in case of refusal, to puil down the prison. The request was, of course, not acceded to, and the mob immedi- ately began to put their threat into execution. A stone step was procured, and used by the mob as a batt^ing-ram against the yanl-door, which shortly gave way to the besiegers. Mr Ramadge, the Bridewell keeper, having feared, from the riotous state of the street, and the shouts he had heard, that an attack might be made on the prison, had previously sent his children to a neighbour's house to sleep, but his wife had refused to leave him. At this juncture, however, when nothing was anticipated but danger, and probably murder, Mrs R. contrived to slip out at the back door, but just as she had got outside the mob stopped her and asked who she was. To this interrogation she had sufficient presence of mind to reply that she was a poor woman whom a watchman bad put in Bridewell for getting a drop of drink, which proved a sufficient passport, and she passed through the crowd uninjured. The mob effected an entrance into the jail. They then released the prisoners and dragged all the furniture they could lay hands on into the street, and speedily destroyed it. The fire police and nightly watch shortly after arrived, and charged the mob, when four watchmen and two of the captains of the watch were very severely injured. One of the watchmen, named Bickerstaff, was stabbed in the face with a dagger, which entered on the right side of the nose by the eye, and came out at the left His life is despaired of. Captain Bradford and Captain Baylis were dreadfully beaten about the head with bludgeon*, as were Williams, Devereux, and Kennedy, watchmen, who now lie at their homes in a dangerous state. Mr Parlour, the superintendent of the borough polibe and Mr Dowling, of the dock office, speedily arrived with their respective forcps to their aid, and his worship the Mayor and Sir Thomas Brncker also promptly came up, when the former read the not act, and between. 20 and SO of the ringleaders were taken inte custody, and the mob dispersed. In the forenoon of yesterday, between eleven and twelve o'clock, the mob again began to congregate in formidable numbers, in Park lane, and Vauxhall-road ou the search for orangemen, and in both places commenced a renewal of the excesses of the previous night. The military were called out, and the Mayor was again obliged to repair to Park-lane, and read the riot act. His worship conducted himself with the greatest intrepidity in disperses the mob, informing them that he was determined no leniency should be shown to any one if they did not desist and disperse. A great number of persons, men, women and children, still lingered in the streets. Detachments of the police were then sent to those parts of the town where the disturbances had taken place, with orders to remain the whole of the day, and no further violence was offered up to the time* we write, although it is feared that under cover of the night the ruffians may renew their work of devastation. Several of the ringleaders have been taken, and at one o'clock the prisoners (all Irish) captured on the previous night, were brought before the Mayr. They having been ranged at the bar, the Mayor informed Mr Davenport, the Solicitor^ who appeared for several of the prisoners, that as the disturbances were then proceeding in the town, and as it was probable there would be more prisoners, he should defer hearing the whole charge until this day (Tuesday .) -Liverpool Standard, Tuesday, July 14.
CORONERS' INQUESTS. MOST BRCTAL AND FATAL FIGHT. An inquest was held by adjournment at the Middlesex Hospital, before Mr. Stirling, on view of the body of John Conmay, a shoemaker, 27 years of age, who was killed on Monday evening, the 29th ult. in a most brutal and^inmanly pugilistic encounter with au Irishman named Murphy, who has absconded. Mary Holmes, the wife of a labourer! residing in West-lane, Kilburn, deposed, that on the even- ing in question she was passing a field near the Eyre Arms Tavern, St. John's Wood, when her attention was attracted to two men who were stripped and fighting, surrounded by a number of persons., She went close up to the com- batant, one of whom was a short thick-set man, and the other very thin and spare. The latter appeared to be no match for his antagonist, who at the close. of every round knocked him down, and fell heavily upon him, and at last he became so weak that he was scarcely, able to stand on his legs. There were regular seconds, and she saw a woman, which she understood to be the wife of one of the men in custody, acting as bottle-holder, with a large stone bottle in her hand, urging on and encouraging the com- batants. Witness, fearing that murder would ensue, having in vain endeavoured to persuade the seconds to put an end to the brutal and unequal contest, sent a messenger for thd police. In the meantime the fight went on, when she saw the thin man (the deceased) walk away from the other some distance, having apparently given in but he was fol- lowed by his brutal assailant, who struck him several hard blows while his back was turned on him. The poor fellow then fell to the ground, as if shot, ami his antagonist fell heavily upon him. The deceased, after this, lay senseless on his back, and was unable to rist, notwithstanding the frequent attempts made to arouse him and renew the com- bat. The woman alluded to seeing that he did not get up, began to taunt him by cnlling hiir. a coward, saying that he was merely "funking" or shamming, and recommended that he should be brought to his senses by throwing a pai 1 full of water over him. As the deceased did not get better, some of the men proposed carrying him to the Eyre Arms, when the woman cried out, Take him to a surgeon and let him dissect him; it's no consequence, he's got neither wife nor children." The deceased was then taken up and carried towards the above house, when the woman again interfered and told the bearers not to trouble or dis- grace themselves by carrying the deceased so far, but to pitch him into the nearest ditch they could find, and there leave him. Witness, apprehending that this barbarous advice would be acted upon, as the party conducted themselves more like fiends than human beings, followed them to the Eyre Arms, when the deceased was bled and Subsequently conveyed to the hospital, and expired soon afterwards. Three men who were active in the fight, named McPetre, Crane, and Parker, and who carried the deceased oft the field, were immediately apprehended by the police and conveyed before the Magistrates of Miirylebone-office. The fight lasted nearly an hour. M.r Morgan, the house surgeon, having proved that the deceased's death was I occasioued by a great effusion of blood on the brain, the Jury returned a verdict of Manslaughter" against Thomas Murphy, and three other persons, unknown to the Jury, who acted as seconds and bottle-holders; and the witnesses were ordered to attend at Marylebone-office, to see if they can identify the three men in custody as the latter Offenders. MURDER. On Sunday morning, at three o'clock, the dead body of a man named Ihomas Parry was discovered by a labourer, lying in some vacant ground, near a timber-yard, in the neighbourhood of Warwick street, Toxteth park. The de- ceased, who has been long known to the police of this town by the cant name of the Slasher," was about 45years of age. An inquest was held on the body on Monday, when the fol- lowing evidence was adduced Mr Henry Worthington, a publican, of Lower Harrington street, informed the jury that on last Saturday night, about twelve o'clock, deceased came into his house, in company with another man, and ordered two glasses of ale, about the payment of which they afterwards disputed. The associate of the de- ceased then paid for it, and they proceeded a short distance from the public house, Parry's companion speak. ing, as they were retiring, in a very angry tone. Neither of them were inebriated at the time. The deceased had no permanent residence, but usually slept in Mr Chaloner's timber-yard, near the spot where the body was found. Deponent knew the deceased very well he was an idle, drunken character, and naturally of a quarrelsome dis- position.—A person named Roberts deposed that, about twelve o'clock on Saturday night. Parry called at her door, and asked for a halfpenny worth of buttermilk; she saw the companion of deceased a little a-head, and heard him request Parry to come on t they proceeded in the direction of the resin-works, in Upper Harrington street.— Mr Edward Hughes, cordwainer, stated that he had been working late on Saturday last, and between twelve and one o'clock he heard a man,cry-in,, out, %von't," or s won't go." He directed his door to be opened, and as- certained it to be Parry, in company with another man. They were quarrelling together, and were about two hundred yards from Chaloner's timbcr-vard.—Another deponem, Joseph Franklyu. said that on Sunday morning, between three and four o'clock, he was proceeding to water some horses in a stable contiguous to the timber-yard, and dis- covered the deceased lying on his back, his face covered y with blood, and a considerable quantity of stones was under him. Deceased was accustomed to sleep upon a heap of stones. There were numerous marks of blood on the ground, some distance from the body, which would favour the supposition that the unfortunate man had made an effort to escape from his murderers. Several men were at the bottom of the tiinber-yard, and were called to witness the revolting spectacle. One of them identi the de ceased. The watchmen were then called and apprised of the occurrence. Tbe body was warm at this period. No instrument of any description was found on or near the spot. The right side of Parry's face was completely beaten to pieces, aud from the nature of the wounds, they ap- peared to have been inflicted by some heavy, blunt in- strument.—Verdict, "Wilful Murder" against some person or persons unknown.. Four individuals have been already taken into custody on suspicion of having committed the above act; but three of them have been discharged. Liverpool' Mercury. Liverpool' Mercury.

SussEx.-(From a Correspondent of tlte Times.) It is rumoured that a powerful requisition is in pro- gress to urge Colonel Henry Wyndham to permit himself to be named as a Conservative candidate for West Sussex. Extract of a letter dated St. John's, Newfound- land, Juue 4 :—" We are in a fearful state of common tioo, from the violence with which the miscalled pa- triots of the colony, under the domination of a very ignorant and bigoted set of Roman Catholic priests, are carrying on their schemesof anarchy and confusion. To give you an idea of this 'second Ireland,' I must inform you, that about a month since, in the broad day- light, and on the road connccting the towns of Harbour Grace and Carboneer, in Conception Bay, an attack was made by five ruffians upon the editor of a Pro- testant journal in this town, who has raised his voice against a priestly tyranny in politics, and after beating him on the head with stones till they deemed him insen- sible, they proceeded to mutilate him by cutting off his ears, one of which they quite severed. More recently the same spirit has been developing itself against the Chief Justice, who, for sentencing the printer of a Radical paper in which was published a gross libel upon the court over wnicti ne presides, to an imprison- ment and fine, has been threatened, in the language of the placards which announced the murderous intention, with a I leaden pill.' As it is, neither Protestant life nor Protestant property is very safe." OTTER HUNTING.—This species of sport has re- cently been added to the other amusements of this sporting district, Lord John Scott's otter-hounds having, during the season, already ufForded frequent opportunities to those who are not unwilling to sacri- fice a sufficient portion of the hours usually devoted to slumber of joining in this enlivening amusement. On Saturday week the hounds commenced scouring the banks of the Tweed at Banff-mill, at the early hour of two o'clock in the morning, before which hour a company numbering cousiderably above 200 persons had assembled on the banks of the river to join the chase. Daybreak ushered in a serene and beautiful July morning, and the joyous shouts of the numerous sportsmen from both banks of the river, not to men- tion those who were plunging freely in the middle of the stream, formed altogether a very animated scene. The hunt was continued all the way from the well- known salmon cast culled the'' Dub," till considerably below the village of Carham, but unluckily without falling in with any game, although no fewer than three otters were started at one place, withjn the same space, about ten days previously. These hounds have, we understand, already afforded excellent sport both in the Teviot and smaller streams to the westward of thhr.-Kelso Mail. FIVE CHILDREN POISONED-Tlje neighbour- hood of Shoreditch was thrown into a state of great confusion on Monday evening se'nnight, in consequence I of the son of Mrs Chapman having incautiously poi- soned himself and tour other children, named Key and Allen. Mrs Chapman, who is a straw bonnet-maker, iu tfwan Yard, Shoreditch, had gone out for the day. and had allowed her son, J. Chapman, whois about ten years old, to invite Ma pkynmieu to spend the after- noon with him. Hei accordingly, invited Charles and Rachel Key and Mary and Elizabeth Allen, and they partook of sweetmeats. After playing some time, being very warm, he said be would tnake them soda- water he, accordingly, went to the cupboard and took a phial, containing oxalic acid, which he mixed upwith some whitening, of which all the children, as well as himself partook. In a short time they were seized with excruciating pains and began to scream. The neighbours came to their assistance, who, sus- peeting that they were poisoned, had them conveyed to a surgeon' in the neighbourhood, who recommended them to be taken to an hospital. They were accordingly conveyed to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, where the stomach-pump was immediately applied, and with suc- cess. But the whole of the children remain in a very dangerous state. DETERMINED SUICIDE.-On Thursday se'nnig'ht, Elizabeth Burrows, aged seventy-two. servant to Miss Smith, an independent lady, residing at No. 129, Craw- ford Street, Bryauston Square, committed suicide under the foiiowiug circumstances --It appeared that the deceased had been in the family of Miss Smith upwards of twenty years, but on the previous Saturday receTred notice to quit on Thursday, since when she had been very desponding; and on going out on anerrand onWed. nesday afternoon, she told a woman who stands at the corner of the street, selling piucusitious that she should drown herself before that time the next day. She went to bed as usual at night, but on some one of the family entering the area about eight o'clock in the morning, they found her with her head and body in the cistern, her feet only projecting out. Serjeant Burke, of the D division, who happened to be passing, was called in, and having extricated her, Mr Wild- grove, surgeon, residing next door, was sent for, when he pronounced her to be quite dead. It is supposed the idea of losing her situation had preyed on her mind and caused her to commit the rash act. The body awaits a coroner's inquest.. HYDROPHOBIA.—At Theltenham, Suffolk, last month, two girls, aged seven and five years, were in their father's garden, when a large brown water spaniel, evidently labouring under the disease, sud- denly came upon them, and, beating the youngest down, inflicted a severe wound by biting her through the bridge of the nose; it then made an attempt to seize the elder child, but she escaped. TBe "onod was of such a nature that the knife could not be used, but caustics were applied, and the child appeared in its usual health and spirits till Thursday night, when about eleven o'clock the parents were alarmed by a noise proceeding from her, as if under extreme diffi- culty in breathing. On reaching the bed they found her in strong convulsions, with which she continued to be Beized, with short intervals, during the whole of Friday and she greater part-of Saturday, and about nine o'clock on Saturday night she died. DREADFUL ACCIDENT.—17 PERSONS DROWNED. -We have this day to record another instance of the deplorable loss of human life of which coal-pits have, in one shape or other, now become a pregnant cause. Owing to the distraction and confusion which such a calamity was calculated to excite, we have not yet been able to obtain particulars; but the following leading facts may be relied upon Yesterday (Friday), as the workmen in the employ of John Fletcher, Esq. at a coal-pit called the Pullart Hole," near Prestolee, about four miles from Bolton, on the bank of the river Irwell, were at their employ, about eight o'clock in the morning, the water burst in from the bed of the river, about 100 yards from the mouth of the pit, with such force that 17 persons (10 boys and young men and seven adults were immediately buried in the water and gravel. The pit contains three mines, the lowest of which the water entered first and rose with such rapidity that the men working in the upper mines bad but just opportunity to escape. About 15 persons, who were working near the mouth of the lower mine, on hearing the roar of the water, ascended, and were luckily saved. The unfortunate individuals lost have not yet been extricated; and it is supposed that, with the greatest exertion possible, some days will transpire before they will be able to be got out. The workmen believe there must have been some old works under the river, and that there has been a giving way some time. A gate was thrown into the river at the point where it seemed to have made a breach in the pit, and it was immediately swallowed up, so (hat there must have been a very large cavity beneath. We have not been able yet to ascertain the names of the sufferers. The pit was about 50 yards deep, and ia now nearly full of water.-Manchoster Advertiser.
• SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S PROCEEDINGS in PARLIAMENT HOUSE OF LORDS.—THURSDAY. ISLINGTON MARKET BILL. Mr JUSTICE PARK delivered the judgment of the judges upon the points submitted to them, re- lative to the rights of the city of London under the charter by which a market in Smithfield was granted. Their lordships were of opinion that the words of that grant were not sufficient to warrant the grant of a new, market during the existence of the old one, beyond two and within seven miles of its scite. Lord BROUGHAM thought the better course would^ be to refer back the opinion of the judges and the Bill to the Committee. He agreed entirely in the opinion of the judges. The Duke of RICHMOND presented the Fourth Report of the Gaol Discipline Committee in which they reported that the gaols of Scotland were in a much worse state than those of England or Wales, and recommending the appointment of Inspectors of Gaols in Scotland. The Soap -Duties Drawback Continuation Bill went through Committee without any amendment. Lord BROUGHAM, in the absence of Lord Den- man, moved the second reading of the Certiorari Bill. The noble lord shortly explained the nature of the Bill -the purport of which is to give the Court of King's Bench power to require higher bail than £20 when a case was moved into that Court by the de- fendants. The Duke of RICHMOND expressed his thanks to the noble and learned lord who had so promptly attended to the suggestion he had thrown out. He trusted that the noble and learned lord would not think it too much, if he asked him to insert in this Act a clause empowering a magistrate to take bail in cases of minor importance, as the law now did not give him power to take bail, unless he enter- tained some doubt of-the guilt of the parties; as he thought no man should be kept in prison when he could be bailed to such an amount as ensured his appearance. He cited two cases to the House which occurred at the last Quarter Sessions for Sussex, in which the prisoners (boys) had acknowledged their guilt before the magistrate, in having stolen three mackerel, value 9d., and then the magistrate had no other duty than to commit them for trial, though their master was willing to take them again into his employment. Lord BROUGHAM would take an opportunity to- morrow of suggesting the matter to the Lord Chief Justice, who, he had no doubt, would give it his im- mediate consideration. The Bill was read a second time.—Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS-THURSDAY, In the Morning Sitting the Manure Toll Exemp- tion Bill was read a third time and passed. The Counsel Bill was read a third time and passed with an alteration in the 4th clause, limiting the right to be heard by counsel before Magistrates to cases where they had summary juris- diction. At the Evening Sitting the Committee on the Penrhyn Election reported that the Solicitor-General had been duly elected. The House resolved itself into Committee on the Municipal Corporation Bill, when the schedules came under consi4era'lon. Mr. ROEBUCE tnoved that thirty Councillors be the number in the Corporation of Bath in lieu of forty-eight, but the motion was rejected by 105 to 72. The schedules were agreed to, the Bill reported, the report received, and the Bill immediately re- committed. The further consideration of the report was appointed for Tuesday next. The Bill, as amended, is to be printed. Mr WALLACE moved for a Select Committee on the management of the Post Office, which brought forth a number of remarks on that establishment; but the motion was withdrawn to allow of the Com- mission of Inquiry into the subject, already ap- pointed, first to complete its labours. An address to his Majesty, to confirm the Treasury Minute for the retiring pension to Mr Seymour, the Sergeant-at-Arms, was agreed to unanimously.— Adjourned. HOUSE OF LORDS-FRIDAY. The Loan Society Bill was read a second time.- The further consideration of the Thirty-nine Articles Bill was, on the motion of Earl Radnor, postponed until Tuesday. The Duke of RICHMOND gave notice of a motion for Monday next, for certain returns connected with the Post Office, in order to answer some statements made (by Mr Wallace) in the Commons, respecting his patronage when at the head of that department. The Prisoners' Counsel Bill was read a second time; and The Duke of RICHMONDmoved that the house be summoned for the third reading.—Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS—FRIDAY. The Medway Navigation Bill was withdrawn. A motion of Mr WALTER, for returns relative to the money advanced to the Thames Tunnel Company, gave rise to some discufsion as to the prospects of the company, and the propriety of advancing the money to complete the undertaking, but the motion was eventually withdrawn. Mr A. JOHNSTON also introduced his motion to abolish Lay Patronage in Scotland, but that likewise was ultimately withdrawn. Previous to the House proceeding into Committee on the Miscellaneous Estimates The CHANCELLOR of the' EXCHEQUER, in reply to a question, observed that he would take the earliest opportunity of communicating to the House the time at which he should be enabled to introduce the Budget. In the Committee a considerable number of items were voted, and among others the sum of £ 42,841 to defray one year's salaries and expenses of the Commissioners under the new Poor Laws' Act. The second reading of the Election Expenses and Qualification Bill was agreed to, after two attempts had been made to postpone it, by Colonel Sibthorpe and Mr Trevor, both of which were defeated-the first by a division of 59 to six, and the latter by 58 to five. The Royal Burghs (Scotland) Bill was read a second tune. Mr M. PHILLIPS moved for leave to bring in a Bill to declare the law concerning persons who im. pugn the doctrine of the Trinity, but he afterwards withdrew his motion. Other business was deferred. The House sat until one, and adjourned until Monday. HOUSE OF LORDS—MONDAY. The Prisoner's Counsel Bill and other Bills were brought up from the Commons, and read a first time. The Marquis of CLANRICARDE gave notice that on Monday next he would move the second reading of the Roman Catholic Marriages Bill. A discussion of some interest took place on the subject of the Post Office. The Bishop of EXETER gave notice that on Thursday next he would ask Viscount Melbourne whether a letter published in the public prints, signed "Daniel Murray," and addressed to him, was received by him ? The Duke of RICHMOND moved that the report of the Committee on Highways be received and printed. Several private Bills were advanced a stage, and the House adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS-MONDAY. A discussion took place on the presentation of a petition from Mr O'Dwyer, the unseated Member for Drogheda, praying for the substitution of a more liberal qualification, and to deprive Committees to try the merits of elections of the judicial power they at present exercised. Mr PERRIN gave notice of a motion for leave to bring in a Bill to regulate the Municipal Corpora- tions of Ireland. In answer to Sir R, Peel, Lord J. RUSSELL said that he would move the re-commitment of the Muni- cipal Corporations Bill this day, and take the discussion on it on that and the next day. The Irish Church Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed on Monday next. In reply to an observation from Mr D. W. Harvey, Lord J. RUSSELL said that he had it in command from his Majesty to state that his Majesty was willing to ptefifc the disposal of Parliament the whole of his Majesty s interests in the rights, pri- vileges, aud patronage, of the Irish Church. The House then resolved itself into a Committee of Supply. An animated discussion took place on the grant for Irish education, which was carried, on a division, by a majority of 143 against 41. The House was counted out at Half-past one. (For remainder of Parliament sec Second Page.)
