-n'fÆ GUTCH'S LITFRARY AND SCIENTIFIC RE- GISTER, HITH ALMANACK FOR 1842, Published by Suttaby and Co., Stationer's Court, London. Among the numerous publications that at this season of the y EAT issue so nro'.hcaliy from the press, in the form of Annuals, Pocket Books. &c., we have not lor some time met with a more useful one. although unpretending in its garb, form, and sizp, than Mr. Gutch's Literary and Scientific Register. A little work that indeed deserves well of the public, and that we conscientiously can recommend to our readers in the Principality. It contains a mass of rertl'j t useful ir,formation to the exclusion of the collections of riddles, charades, &c., the day for which is passed away: it contains, moreover, that kind of information that we are all of U3 wanting to remember and failing so to do. Mr. Gutch has contrived to condense much matter that cannot but prove practi- cally useful to the meteorologist, especially to the, Medical Man, the Botanis', Naturalist, or Man of Science in ceneral with the usual Almanack for the year is also added one that must interest all of us more or less, (and especially the Lover of Nature) a full account of the various Phenomena that occur especially in the animal AND vegetable world through- out the year. The work also contains blank rule(] pages for the purpo se of keeping a meteorological register of the weather,; and with this enumeration of its merits we leave it (confident of its success which it so well deserves, BRECON". We are informed that a requisition headed by the Loid-Lieu'enant of the County of Brecon, has been forwarded to the High Sheriff of that county, requesting he \vi|l call a meeting of the in- habitants, FOR the purpose ot agreeing upon loy;■ 1 addresses to be presented to Her Majesty the Queen, His Royal Highness Prince Albert. and the Duche-s of Kent, on the birth of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. CAUTION TO JURVMEN. — Two gentlemen sum- moned on the Grand Jury, at the lust Quarter Sessions, for the county of Brecon, were fined £5 p.,eh for non- attendance, and thp learned Chairman expre>« <1 the determination of the Court to fine those wÍio did not it) future attend. We are informed that in some counties, probably in Rreconshire, manv respectable individuals consider it alino>t an insult to tie sum moned as jurors at the Quarter .Sessions, particu'arlv if they have ever served on the Grand Jury at the assizes. If these gent'emen were for a moment to consider that the liberties of many of TH• ■ IR fellow men, probably for the greater portion of their lives, depend upon the jurors at Quarter Sessions, who ouuht to be men of understanding, they would not we are sure allow themselves to be led away by false pride, b it would consider it to be their duty to their country promptly to attend the sheriff's summons. Sir HerbertJennerand the Right Hon. J. Nicholl had a lengthened interview Wednesday morning with Sir James Graham at the Hoine-oftice. THAMES Tmo;EL.-A thoroughfare was on IVed- nesday last effected in this work, and made use of for the first time by the whole of the directors and some of the original subscribers, who had assembled upon the occasion. The shield having been ad- vanced to the shaft at Wapping, a considerable opening was cut in the brickwork, and it was through this that the party who had met at Rother- hithe were enabled to pass, thus opening the first subterranean communication between the opposite shores of the river. Upon their airival at the shaft the party was greeted by the workmen with most hearty cheers. A curious and interesting incident was connected with the event; a few bottles of wine, preserved tince the dinner given on the occa- sion when the foundation stone was laid, with the understanding that it was to be drank only when it could be carried under the Thames, having been opened and enjoyed by the company to the health of Her Majesty and the infant, P rince. WILn CAT -About the middle of the last month Sir Pyers Mostyn. the young baronet of Talacre, emulating the family skill in die use of the gUll, saot a a wiid cat in a covert in the parish of Llanasa- The cat and a brace of foxes started from the samegorse bush, but Joe Manton soon dissolved the partnership. A similar animal had not been seen in the country for 50 years. The tail is annuhiled with black; the body with black stripes. The dorsal ones, three in number, longitudinal; those on the sides, spiral. The length is three feet two inches, the girth IC inches anda-halt, and the weight 13lb- 2oz. I hece strangers have been induced to come by the extensive plantations made by the late Sir Mostyn upon this part of his property in the principality; but they will not he welcome visitors, as, after the wolf, now happily extinct in this country, they are the fiercest and most destructive beasts of prey in the island.
