Di-.atii OF THE Bishop OF [Ifki.fokd.—On Monday last, died at his palace at Hereford, the Hon. and Right Hev. Dr. Edward Grey, Lord Bishop of that diocese. His Lordship's demise was very unexpected; he had only just returned from attending his Parliamentary duties; and, al. though indisposed, his ilIness was not considered of any importance, and lie had appointed the times and places for holding his visitations and confirmations for the present year. On Sunday morning, however, he was seized with inflammation, and, notwithstanding the best medical advice, died at seven o'clock the following morning. His Lord- ship, who was in his fifty-sixth year, lias left a family of fourteen children, the youngest of whom is only about a year and a half old. The Bishop was ele- vated to the episcopal bench, on the death of Dr. Isaac Hnntingford, in 1832, under the administration of his brother, Earl Grey; and the appointment was made in the most flattering manner by the late King. In politics his Lordship usually supported the Whigs, though of late he was much and strenuously opposed to those measures which have for their object the destruction of the Established Church, and the revered institutions of the country. The pretty lake of Cheda, celebrated in the annals of travellers to the valleys of Chamounv, has jost been destroyed by a considerable falling in of earth which had taken place liom the neigh- bouring mountains. In the stead 01 these WATERS once so pure, of this SURFACE so transparent, of this mirror of the summit of Mont Blanc, nothing but a heap of black mud and stones remain. This ca- tastrophe has not, however, injured the high road. Eleven Commandments.—Archbishop Usher once went in disguise and begged alms at a Curate's house. The Curate was out upon his duty; but his prudent wife somdly lectured the old man, though she gave hitO relief. For sha:ne old man, at thf'se years to GO begging; these are not the usual fruits of an honest, industrious, and godly life. Tell me, old man, how many commandments there are? The old man with seeming confusion, stammered out "eleven." I iliotizlit so," said she; "go thy ways, old IIlall; and here take this book with thee and learn thy catechism; and when next time YOU are ASKED say "ten." The Archbishop TOUT "HI* depart me, and had it formally announced that. > Ie should preach the next day in the parish CHU' .C|, Tbe morning came; little thought ihe GOOD V 0.RL j that tile Archbishop WAS the old alms BEIFG U- .I he t:'ave \\1"; text and COllllII(,lIt, "A new flt\ I give unto you, thai ye love one ANO' IIER "IT should seem." begins ihe sermon, <„Y ,|,JS ,EX, that there are 'eleven COMMANDING ? its.

I had taken 30 tickets; it was as much as my means would allow of my doing. My tickets are all blanks, yours is the only prize. Cede it to me, or you will cause my death." Madame," replied Mademoiselle Euphrasie, "there is a written clallse on the tickets that if the young man should not please me, or if I should not please the young man, we arc to divide tne 200,000 francs, and not to marry one another. This chance remains for you; as to my ticket, I shall keep it." An hour afterw ards the prize young man presented himself to Euphrasie; they were mutually satisfied, and lost no time in binding the conjugal knot. The lady who had been so anxious to obtain the tran-ler I of Enphrasie's ticket was a widow of Cai-eassontife, and is said to have destroyed herself.
