DREADFUL CCIDI.NT AT ROTH F.Rit il'il E.-Th e following particulars of the circumstances and con- se Hieuccs of the fall of the lofty furnace-chimney of the cement rnanufac'ory of Messrs Hart and Christ- mas, Church Street. Kotherhithe, are the result of a eyeful enqnirv on the spot .estei-dav w is built l.y Mr Bragg, aibuilder whose experience ai;d ability are held in genera! repute in the neigh- 1. bourhood. The exact height of the chimney was frcvenfy-two feet three inches, and the foundation W is built on a stone base, six feet square, by about inches in thickness. Those who the tall of the iofiy pile, say that it swayed orer, in one Complete mass, from the base to the apex, increasing I,, iis fearful velocity as it descended, but remaining wholly unbroken till it was snapped asunder by the N,itii the roof of Mr Connel.'s house, The A civsh and confusion were then appalling. In the language of an intelligent person who witnessed the calamity, the chimney fell like a lofty pine, suddenly uplifted by an earthquake. The stone on which the ,a, built'is tilted up oil its cl;(i, nearly perpendicular, a circumstance that seems strongly «° Sj'1.0W ,'Vjt ''l0 had "ot sufficient solidity for a"d weighty a structure.

THE EARL OF ORlORD AND THE TOWN COUNCIL OF GREAT YARMOUTH. Our readers may probably have remarked the announcement by the town council of this borough that they had removed the Ear! of Orford from his oliice of High Steward. On his Lordship's atten- tion being called to the circumstance he addressed the following letter to VVilliarn Barth, Esq. the newly chosen inkiyor: •' VYolterton, .lan. 26, 1836. "SIR-It is at this moment only that I have been made acquainted through the newspapers It ith a vote of the corporation of Yarmouth, re- moving me from the heretotore most honourable situation of High Steward ot Yarmouth. "The honour which the late corporation of your borough had conferred upon me was received with pride and gratitude. Illy dismissal by the present corporetion coolers almost equal honour upon your obedient servant, « OHFOKI). "To the Mayor ot Yarmouth."
Madame de Beaumont, only daughther of the late celebrated Baron Dupuytren, the French surgeon, is now one of the riches, ladies in France, having by the death of her father succeeded to a fortune of seven millions of lrancs. Paganiui has written to a friend ill toivn to say that he is composing a new grand concerto, which he calls Kieordanxa dell Inghilterra," and intends to visit London about April next. We hear most flalteiing descriptions of the talent of a Monsieur Bull, a Danish violinist. We are told that in addition to a surprising mastery over his instrument he has a genius for the creative in art," wlllch '"akes him a most accomplished artist. He is shortly expected in this country. SIGNOR VACCAJ- This celebrated composer is now busily engaged tn the completion of his opera for f.a at Jilan, where it is expected to apepar for the hist tune in the course of next month. Tbe subject he has clu, sen is Jane Grey After superintending tle production of his opera at Milan the author intends revisiting- London, where he is expected to arrive jn the latter end of March. FASHION IN PARIS. The last ball at the Tuile- ries furnishes a thousand useful hints for the female toilet. The greatei part of the fair sex wore the- hair plain in front, and turned up behind u la (wreeque, and either decorated with pearls or with limall wreaths of artificial flowers, which formed two circles, the larger ot the two touching the fore- head. There were seveial Ladies who had a large curl on each side ot ihe temples, and a branch of flowers ou the top ot the head, which waved, like the tail of a bird ot paradise, 011 one side. The most remarkable costume was a gown of light red satin, open in front, and retained so at equal distan- ces by bows of pearls: the white satin slip, thus discovered, was ornamented with a flounce of silk lace. The body, open before in the shape of a heart, showed the white satin beneath. The head- dress was an arrangement of pearls, terminated on each side by pearl tassels that fcllllpoll the neck. An original costume was the foltowing:-A straw- colo ired crape gown, open in front, and decorated with straw coloured roses, the edges of which wee formed of black velvet. A black lace cape con- cealed the body. The ct, iflitrewas a turban of straw-colour, surrounded with black jet beads terminating in two long tassels on one side. '1 he shoes are round upon the instep, and are bordered with a plaited ribbon, in imitation ot the fashion during the reign of Louis XV. EXTRAORDINARY OCCURRENCE AT .MANCHES- TER. Manchester, Jan. Ihe Commissioners of Police have been, for two or three years past, applying the funds at their command to the opening of a magnificent thoroughtare tiom the Lxchange to communicate with the new road 10 Bury. To do this it was necessary to erect an immense .stone wall on the banks of the 11. in-er Irwell, the average height of which was Hity feet. About 120 yards of this have been completed- xoct opposite were the works of Messrs. Collier and Co., extensive wool-combing machine makers, hese explana- tions are necessary to give the a clear con- ception of the extraordinary devastation produced by the accident which occuned this morning. This immense wall, two handled feet in length, of the average height above stated, iell this morn- ing a little after eight o'clock, 111 one connected mass, into the river [nv £ l'- ie consequences are almost incredible, viz. the total destruction oi the works of Messrs. Collier and to. on the oppo- site bank of the river. The immense mass of brick and stone work falling entire, and with its broad side, into the river, made so great a swell in the water that the waves were dnven violently against the works and levelled them with the ground. Some lives, it is feared, have been lost, and had the accident happened much sooner or later than it did upwards of fifty workmen would have been on the premises, when the lo.;s ot Ide would have been much more serious. Fortunately, however, it occurred at an hour when the men were absent at breakfast. The loss will he ffreat, but it is ex- pected that Messrs. Collier will be indemnified by the town, < DEATH OF LORD STOWELL. This venerable and most accomplished nobleman died on the 20th ult. at his seat, Early Court, near Reading, in his gist year. It is an anecdote not generally known that Mrs Scott (his Lordship's mother) when in an advanced state of pregnancy, fled from Newcastle on account of the robe's, in the famous year 1745, and took refuge within the County of Durham, here her son William (Lord Stowell) was born. This circumstance, then the occasion of great anxiety and distress, was in all human probability, the cause of the future greatness, not only of his Lordship, but of his younger brother, the Earl of Eldon. His birth in Durham entitled him to stand for that county Felloe snip in University College, Oxford. This brought his brother John (Lord Eldon) there also: and it was there the foundation of their subsequent greatness was laid.- Lord Stowell was generally considered one of tile most learned men that this kingdom has produced, and it is well known, that his brother, the Lord Chancellor (nulli seeundnsj often consulted him in questions of extraordinary difficulty. During a long period of time this highly distin- guished person has filled a very considerable space in the eye of mankind. His knowledge was profound and multifarious, combining all the materials that indefatigable research, close and minute observation, and intense study could provide for tiie supply of an acute, vigorous, and capacious mind. Ilisjudgments in the several Courts in which he presided arc univer- sally estimated as models of sound and powerful reasoning, and of the purest classical eloquence; those which he gave as Judge of the Court of Ad- miralty are now generally recognised as law by the maritime nations of the world. In his political principles and conduct lie. m,as in- variably tiie uncompromising supporter of the estab- lished Constitution of his country hi Church and State. In private life he was the charm and ornament of every so iety of which he formed a part; in conversa- tion passing from "grave to gay, from lively to severe," with a happy facility, which at once called forth the strongest feelings of admiration and delight. It may be truly said of him, "Nil tetigit, quod non ornavit." Sucli is a faint, brief, and hasty sketch of the quali- fications and character of a person who was one of the brightest luminaries of the age and country i1 which he lived, and who has lelt benind him an imperishable name. His Lordship had been twioe married—in 17S2 to Anna Maria, daughter of John Bagnal, Esq. and in 1813 to tiie Dowager Marchioness of Sligo, woo was the daughter of the celebrated Earl Howe. Lord irtowell's only son died lately. His only daughter (the widow of Tuomas I ownsend, Esq.) is married to Viscount Sidmouth. The title is extinct.
-= GLEANINGS TURNIP FLY.—Amongst the papers recently read at the meetings of the Entomological society, was one communicated by Mr Lc lveux, containing a series of observations upon the ravages of the turnip fly, (Ilaltica Nemorum,)'t\\ an account of its preparatory states. The great damage annually committed by this tillv enemy of the agriculturist, induced the Don- caster agricultural society to propose it as a subject highly worthy of investigation. Tiie report of this society has been published, and notwithstanding the exertions of the numerous correspondents, the natural history of the insect in question, without which the application of remedies must be dubious was undis- covered. Mr Le Keux has supplied this Want, by giving an account of the preparatory stages of the insect. As INDIAV IT)OL.-Ill the province of Guzerat, on the shore of the Indian Ocean, stood Sumnaut, a shrine higher and holier than any that Mahtnoud had yet devoted to spoliation. Two thousand villages were assigned for its support, besides presents poured in from all the surrounding regions. Sumnaut him- self was esteemed the general judge of the dead, and his statue of pure gold was washed every morning with water brought from the Ganges, a thousand miles distant. Tne attendants consisted of two thousand Hrahmins, five hundred dancing girls, and three hundred barbers Mahmoud, after a long and bloody siege, gained a complete victory. The conqueror entered the place, and was led to the temple, a spacious and antique structure, the interior of which consisted of a majes- tic hall, supported by 06 columns, and entirely en- circled with golden images of Hindoo Deities. Sum- naut himself, whose actual dimensions are variously reported, towered gigantic over all. On first behold- ing t::is idol, the Mahometan conqueror, firecl with wrathful zeal, struck off its nose, and gave orders that the whole figure should forthwith be reduced into fragments. As the attendant h'rahniins saw the downfall of this object of their profoundest venera- tion, they fell on their knees, andproifered an immense sum to save what remained; and the Omrahs advised, even as a matter of prudence, the acceptance of tnese terms: but the King rejected the idea of becoming a "seller of idois." Tile work of demolition pro- ceeded; and', on its reaching the interior of the image, there was disclosed a treasure in pearls, rubies and diamonds, almost beyond conception, and far sur- passing the immense sum tendered for its redemp- tioii.British India.

SCENE BETWEEN BONAPARTE AND TALLEYRAND. —After the glorious defeat at Leipsie, the native foreigners, as they have been so aptly denominated, took fresh courage, though they were obliged still to confine themselves to secret manoeuvres, after the warning they had received from the Emperors re- proaches to M. de Talleyrand. Another still more violent scene took place* between Napo.eonand his Prime Minister, after Napoleon's return Irom Mayence. .\1. de Talleyrand, as usual, appeared at the levee.

EXTRAORDINARY Fisit IN THE INDIAN SEAS.—Mr Piddington has sent to the Asiatic Society of Henga a notice of an extraordinary fis*1 st?e!1 }Y lltn 111 the In- dian seas, wiiicli corroborates tiie account given by- Lieutenant Foley, I h says :—" III lumber, 181(3, I commanded a small Spanish brig, and was lying at anchor in the bay of Mariveles, at the entrance of the bay of Manilla. One day, about noon, hearing a con- fusion upon deck, I ran up, and looking over the side, thought Irom what I saw, that the vessel had parted, and was drifting over a bank of w.ute sand or coral, witii large black spots. I called out to let go another anchor, but my people, Manida men, all said, 'No, Sir, it's onlv the (.,Ila(.oll and upon tunning up the rigging I saw, indeed, that I had mistaken the motion of the spotted back of an enormous fish passing under the vessel for the vessel itself driving over a bank. Mv boatswain (contramestre), a Cadiz man, with great fool-hardiness, jumped into the boat, with four men, and actually succeeded in harpooning the fish with the common dolphin harpoon, or grains, as they are usually called, to which he made fast the deep sea line; but they were towed at such a fearful rate out to sea, that were glad to cut from it immediately. From the view I had of the fish, and the time it took to pass slowly under the vessel, I shou d not suppose it less than 70 or 80 feet in length. Its breadth was very great in proportion, perhaps not less than 30 feet. Tiie back was so spotted that, had it been at rest, it must have been taken for a coral shoal, the appearance of which is familiar to seaman I did not distinguish the head or fins well, from being rather short-sighted, and there being some confusion on board." Mr Pid- dington was induced to collect a variety of particulars respecting these monsters, which seem to leave no doubt of the existence of large fish of which no scien- tific description has yet been given.-Asiatic Journal. COLOVH PRODUCED IN Olic.ANIC MATTER BY CIILO- RINK.—It is well known that chlorine destroys the colour of organic matter, but we were scarcely pre- pared to find that it developes colour in some white organic substances. Tiie wings of the whole of the white indigenous Butterfles, comprehended in Stephens' genus Pontia, are rendered, by chlorine, of a beautiul deep pink colour. This effect is not pro- duced by either muriatic or nitric acids, neither does the experiment succeed with any of the other white lepidopterous insects on which it has been tried. The colour developed on the wings of P. rapes, or the small white, is deeper than upon those of the other species; and it is immaterial whether the insect has been lately captured, or has been an antient inmate of the cabinet. The experminent is readily tried in the following manner:—Attach the insect to a piece of cork fixed o:i tiie inside of a tumbler, and invert tiie glass, for a minute or two, over a little red lead, moistened with muriatic acid. The insect, unchanged in appearance, is then to Iw replaced in tile drawer of the cabinet, and, in the course of a few hours, it changes to a beauti fu! pink. If the '■'Jen be too long exposed to the action of the gaVtfle colour will not be developed; and the pink colour produced by one exposure, is entirely destroyed by a second.
The King s Speech LO s DON, TIU'RSD Y KYEXING. His Majesty left the Palace this afternoon, and pro- ceeded in State to the House of lordi, where he opened the Second Session of the present Parliament. "My LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, It is with great satisfaction that I again meet the great Council of the nation assembled in Parliament. I am ever anxious to avail myself of your advice and assistance, and I rejoice that the present state of public I)Otil at home and abroad, is such as to permit you to proceed without delay or interruption to the calm examination of those measures which will be submitted to your consideration. I continue to receive from my allies, and gene- rally trom all foreign Powers, assurances of their un- altered desire to cultivate with me those friendly relations which it is equally my wish to maintain with them: and the intimate union which happilv subsists between this country and France is a pledge to Europe for the continuance of the general peace. Desirous on all occasions to use my friendly en- deavours to remove causes of disagreement between other Powers, I have offered my mediator in order to compose the difference. which has arisen between Fran be and the United States. Ttiis offer has been accepted by the Kiug of the French the answer of the President of the United States has not yet been received but I entertain a confident hope that a misunderstanding between two nations so enlightened and high-minded, will be settled in a manner satis- factory to the feelings, and consistent with the honour of both. I have still to lament the continuance of the civil contest in the Northern Provinces of Spain. The measures which I have taken, and the engagements into which I have entered, sufficiently prove my deep anxiety for its termination; and the prudent and vigorous conduct of the present government of Spain inspires me with the hope that the authority of the Queen will soon be established in every part of her dominions; and that the Spanish nation, so long con- nected by friendship with Great Britain, will again enjoy thebjessings of internal tranquility and union. I have given directions that there be laid before you the Treaty which I have concluded with the Queen of Spam for the suppression of the Slave Trade. "GENTLEMEN OF TIIE IIOLSE OF COMMONS. I have directed the estimates of the year to be prepared and laid before you without delay. They have been framed with the strictest regard to well- considered economy. The nccessity of maintaining the maritime strength of the country, and of giving adequate pro- tection to the extended commerce of my subjects, has occasioned some increase itt the estimates for the naval branch of the public service. MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, The state of the Commerce and Manufactures of the United Kingdom is highly satisfactory. I lament that any class of my subjects should still suffer dis- tress; and the diffieultics which continue to be felt in important brancnes of Agriculture, may deserve your enquiry, with the view of ascertaining whether there are any measures which Parliament can advantage- ously adopt for the alleviation of this pressure. I have not yet received the further Report of the Commission appointed to consider the several Dioceses of England and Wales. But I have reason to believe that their recommendations upon most of the impor- tant subjects submitted to them, are nearly prepared. They shall be laid before you without delay, and you will-dired your early attention to the establishment, with the intention of rendering it more efficient for the holy purposes for which it has been instituted. Another subject which will naturally occupy you, is the state of the tithe in England and Wales and a meaSUre wilt be submitted to you, having for its end the rendering thIs mode of providing for the clergv more fixed and certain, and calculated to relieve it from that fluctuation, and from those objections to which it has hitherto been subject. The principles of toleration by which I have been invariably guided, must render me desirous of remov- ing any cause of offence or trouble to the consciences of any portion of my subjects, and I am therefore anxious that you should consider whether measures may be framed, which, whilst they remedy auy grievances which affect those who dissent from the doctrine or disvipline of the Established Church, wil! also be of general advantage to the whole body of the community. speedy and satisfactory administration of justice is the first and most sacred duty of a Sovereign, and I earnestly recommend you to consider whether better provisions may not be made for this great pur- pose in some of the departments of the law, and more particularly in the Court of Chancery. I trust that you will be able to effect a just settlement of the question of tithe in Ireland upon such principles as will tend at length to establish harmony and peace in the country. You are already in possession of the Report of the Com mission appointed to enquire into the state of the Municipal Corporations in Ireland, and I entertain the hope that it will be in your power to apply to any defects and evils which may have been shown to exist in those Institutions, a remedy founded on the same principles as those of the Acts which have been already passed for England and Scotland. "A further report of the Commission of Inquiry into the condition of the poorer classes of my subjects in Ireland, will speedily be laid before you. You wilj approach this subject with the caution due to its im- portance and difficulty and the experience of th,) salutary effect of the act for the amendment of the Jaws relating to the poor in England and Wales, may, in many respects, assist your del iberatioils. I rely upon your prudence and wisdom, and upon your determination to maintain, as well as to amend, the laws and institutions ot the country and I com- mit those questions of domestic policy, to which! have deemed it inydutv to direct your attention, into your hands, persuaded that you will so treat them as to increase the happiness and prosperity, by promoting the religion and morality, of my people."
T LAlV INTELLIGENCE. J3 VL'E-CIL\XC:Ll.OH.'S COCRT, WEDNESDAY, Jan. 27. COMMESNY V. BYERLY. Mr Knight applied for a special injunction ex pare against the defendant,—M. Commesny, the phuutin, a chymist, residing at Kheims, iu France, some time previous to the year 1834 invented a chy.nictd process, to eilcet a great savins; of oil in the prrparillion of woul for manufacturing woollen KO )(I,, and also for improving the quality of stich manufactured goods. The plaintiff became ac- quainted with the defendant, calling himself Sir John Bverly, of Whitehead Grove, Chelsea. The plainliiE being desirous to make !.is chytriical dis- covery known in the world, an 1 to obtain a patent for the use of it in this country, mentioned the subject to the defendant, who represented the dif- ficulties to be of a very formidable nature, and re commended the to aV<li himself of tiie great influence, experience, and talent which the delen- dant possessed. The defendant prevailed upon the plaintiff in November, 1831, to sign an agreement, th it the plaintiff should make the defendant ac- quainted with the secret of the discovery, so that he could communicate it to the F.nglish manufacturers, but the defendant was prohibited under h-avy pe- nalties from communicating the nature of the process out of Great Britain, and the plaintiff was to retain his right to make use of the invention ill any other country but Lowland. After payment of all ex- penses, the profits were to be equaPy divided between the plaintiff arid the defendant. The p austitr received no consideration whatever from the defendant, whom he had since discovered to have m..de representations that were not founded in truth. The plaintiff came to England, and entered into communication with several extensive manu- facturers in Yorkshire and Gloucestershire upon the chymical character of his discovery, which was ▼fry favourably received by them. The defendant being unable to explain the nature of the invention, invited the plaintiff to accompany him to Hudders- fieid ill order to have a personal interview with some ottlie manufacturers on the subject. Several ex- periments were successfully made with the process. The plaiutift" was taken iii, and from certain repre- sentations which were at that time made by the defendant lie was induced to leveal the whole secret to him. The defendant proceeded to take out a patent for the invention in his own name alone. The plaintiff being in a very precarious stale of health, was induced by Sir J. Byerly to sign a second agreement, whereby he consented to assign his whoie interest h the invention to the defendant fir a suin of 20,; COO francs, which was sccured upon 8 deed, under vvhie!) the defendant declared hllIlsel1 I., be eni ill.'d to a very large sum of money. The ttefendaut having thus obtained the entire right to ilie inveti:ion, had obtained large contracts from the manufacturers. The representations on which the plaintiff had been, prevailed upon to part with his secret were fraudulent, the contract mentioned iu 'he agreement had never been assigned to the de- fendant, nor was it a.1 available security. The plaintiff had resolved to apply to the Court for its protection. The injunction, therefore, prayed against the defendant was, that he might be re- strained from receiving any monies, or entering into any contracts or licenses, under either of the agree- ments before mentioned. TheVice-ChauceHor granted the injunction. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, JAV. 30. (Sittings in Banco.) THE KING V. THE JUSTICES OF GLOUCESTERSHIRE This was a rule for a mandamus, applied for with the view of getting the opinion of the Court as to whether the new Municipal Corporation Act had altogether taken away the jurisdiction of the county magistrates from such parts of the village of Clif- ton as had been by that Act made part of the new borough of Bristol, or whether their authority there was only taken away i:i such matters as strictly related to the purposes of that Act. The Atto rney General and Mr Maule were heard against the rille for aawd Ilr Greaves in support of it. The Court took time till Monday to consider of the judgment.
COUxlT OF COMMON PLFCAS, WESTMINSTER, "Feb 1. TUE BRISTOL DOCK, COMPANY V. WIKES. The Lord Chief Justice delivered the judgment ot the Com t_ in tnis case to-day. It will be recol- lected that it was an action brought by the plain- tins against (he defendant to recover certain port duties on two cases of Irish linen, imported by the defendant into the port of Bristol, which duties they claimed by virtue of the Act of Parliament called the Bristol Dock Act. The facts having re-en turned illo a special ease, in order to have the right determined, the question was argued in a tonner term, ,d the Court took time to consider of its judgment. Two points arose, on which the defendant contended that he was not liable the one was, tnat by the Act in question vessels trading coastwise" v.ere exempt from the duties so im- l^ut as vessels trading from auy part <•; the Lnited Kingdom must be understood to be racing coastwise within the meanin of the Act, "vessels trading from Irish ports were therefore ex- empted idle other point contended for was, that ue antics in question being only imposed on vessels coming from parts beyond the sea," they did not arfdy to vessels coming from Ireland, that part of the empire being no longer, since the passing of the Act of Union, a country beyond 'oe sea h t])e legaI signification of that sen- •ence. Upoi the first point, the Court were clearly of opinion that the words "vessels trading lil;;it be understood in their natural Signification, as comprising vessels trading from some port in the Island ol Great Britain, and not t*roiii roi-ts in a country which .,as totally s t-, pi rit ted from it by the sea, as was the case with respect to Ireland; and secondly, I he Court was of opinion that IreiatTd must be taken to be "pints be- yond the sea,within the meaning of the Act. His l ordship referred to numerous cases in which it ¡¡,cd been so held before the passing of the Act of Cnion; and although that Act certainly placed and merchandise imported from Ireland on the same footing with those conveyed from the of Great ritaiii, yet in several Acts of Par- liament passed subsequently, Ireland was still treated as parts beyond the sea," which proved that in the mind of the Legislature the relative position of Ireland, for some purposes at least, re- mained, in point of law, unaltered by the Act of C'aion; and, indeed, -she was so treated in an Act of Parliament, passed simultaneously with the Lristol Dock Act, and consequent'y it was fairly to oe interred that a different signification was not intended to be applied to the words parts beyond the sea" in the latter Act. On these grounds the Court were of opinion that vessels entering the port ot Bristol from any of the Irish ports were liable to the dues in question; nnd that, consequently jlidment mllst be entered lor the plaintiffs.
