THE ROYAL EXCHANGE.—EP.FJY yesterday morning: ladders were elevated to the summit of the clock-tower to expedite the survey intended to be made of ih.it part of the building- b\ Mr Montague and his assistant^ v, hicta was during the day com- pleted, and the result of which we were informed was that the-tower was safe, and is not expected at present to be demolished, The ruins are now entirely surrounded by the hoard raised within the last two days, within and without which labourers are busily employed in cleaiieg away the loose rubbish and breaking up the ice which the late severe frost has rendered exceedingly dangerous to the inspectors and pedestrians in general. In the quadrangle operations are still suspended, and will be, it is said, for some day,. to come; visitors are, however, yet allowed to view the interior scene of destruction with orders from the civic authorities, but these it appears are not so freely giveu as on former occa- sions, t-ince it has been made known that persons have purloined pieces of stone, or any removable article for the Sake of preservation as a memento of th;s national oalamity. Relics are sought foj- with avidity, and some parties have been so importunate to obtain them, that in one instance an offer of a X5 note, it is said, was made to one of the workmen employed in the ruins for a head, leg, or arm, of one of the monarchical statues which graced the interior, but as to tiie compliance with the request, thas remains untold.—:Times. The thunderbolt launched by Sir Robt-rt Peel on Tuesday, at the head of Mr Joseph Hume, left that culprit in a condition to be envied only by con. demned pirits. Should an untimely death upon the scaffold orertake the unhappy traitors PapilJeau and Mackenzie, on whose head will be their blood, we ask ? On his by whom they were "instiated and spurred into rebellion." The words are those of the arch-instigator himself. Mr Joseph Hume if we are not nnstakco^ though too stupidiy iasenaiote to feel them now, will think upon -them an hi. death bed.
