RUSSELL, Home Surgeon. ■ AN, INQUISITIVE CHIMJJEY.—On Friday night, when the storm was at the highest, the chimney of ahouse in the neigh. bourhood of the Dry Dock fell down, smashed the roof, carrying away everything before it. It broke into the bed- room, and from thence into the sitting-room, where its further progress was stayed. Considerable alarm was created in the inmates, but fortunately they were more frightened than hurt. People talk of looking down one's chimney to see what's for dinner—but here was a chimney playing the Paul Pry, and descending from its airy height to see what a quiet little family were doing in the bed and sitting room. The last division of the 2nd Battalion of the 97th Regi- ment, (a party of which regiment has been so long recruiting in this town) sailed on the 5th instant from Portsmouth to Corfu, and the other Ionian islands-a glorious quarter for the Welsh lads who have joined this fine regiment. We last week reported proceedings against a William White, charged with having exposed for sale, four dead pigs, which had been smothered. It is but justice to say, that Mr. William White, butcher, of St. Mary's-street, is not the individual meant. The delinquent on the Occasion was a person of that name, residing in Whitmore-lane, and who is sot a butcher. Mr. White's character for probity is too well known for any person to suppose for an instant, that he could be the party accused. CARDIFF MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.—The library of this Institution has received an interesting acquisition this week to its collection, by a. present from the Marqueias of Bute, of twelve volumes of the Bridgwater Treatise, handsomely bound in calf. This elegant donation, indicative it may be fairly presumed, of the regard of the noble Marquess for the prosperity of this excellent Institution, has been suitably acknowledged by the committee in a vote of thanks unani- mously accorded to his Lordship. The example thus so considerately set by his Lordship, may, it is hoped, be followed by gentlemen from whose literary superfluities, something might be spared to add to the entertaining re- sources of the Institute. THE MANCHESTER UNITY OF ODD FELLOWS.—We have much pleasure in directing attention to an able and candid exposition of the principleof this excellent body, which appears in a letter in another part of our impression, and which professes to be a reply to certain strictures of the Arch- deacon of Durham, relative to the burial service at the inter- ment of Odd Fellows. The terms of reprehension "used by the Archdeacon are, we believe, dictated by an en- lightened and scrupulous zeal for the preservation of the solemn and imposing formulary of our burial service. We can hardly think that the body ofOddFellows in this country, whose designation is synonymous with the observance of the best social and christian duties, is liable to the grave impu- tation of irreligion, implied in the charge of the rev. gentle- man. The constitution of this large and influential body, numbering upwards of 300,000, may afford a fair guarantee that the solemnities of their burial service, though not strictly orthodox, will be as free from reproach as are the principles and practices of the society. PETTY LARCENIES. Complaints are being continually made by the proprietors of coal in the neighbourhood of the Bute docks, of considerable quantities of that article being abstracted. However we may regret the want of principle or the destitution that induces people to commit such depre- dations, it must be admitted that considerable facilities and almost irresistible temptations are held out to such coal appropriators by the absence of anythinfr like an enclosure to the coal. The coal is left in open yards, in the vicinity of a large thoroughfare, and though the law will take cogni- zaiiile of the fact, and give all possible redress, yet a jury will be hardly found to convict for a crime to commit which such temptations and facilities are held out as the leaving coal in the open air, and subject to such discretion as want or dishonesty may choose to exercise regarding it. THE DIOCESE OF ST. ASAPH AND BANGOR. Petitions to both Houses of Parliament, to rescind that part of an Act for uniting the Dioceses of St. Asaph and Bangor, and for Church extension, will lie at the Office of this Paper for signature during the next week. LLANDAFF FAIR.—The depression so greatly complained of throughout the county in the prices of farming stock was rather observable at this fair, which was held on Thursday. Beef fetched 5d. per lb. mutton 6d. cows in calf, of which there was a fair attendance, from 7 to 9 guineas each. The show of cart horses was pretty good, and but little demand. The depreciation of the general run of stock was such as to induce the holders to reserve them for a more propitious opportunity. III consequence but an inconsiderable" sliarid of the stock changed hands. SOUTH WALES CIRCUIT.-Spring Assizes, 1843.- Before Mr. Justice Maule. Swansea, Wednesday, February 22.

The Queen and Prince Albert have respectively transmitted the sum of £ 50 in aid of the erection of an asylum at Den- high for the reception of the insane poor of North Wales. There are at the present time no less than 664 persons suffer- ing from insanity, without any provision for their protection or comfort. The Prince of Wales appears as a donor of 100 guineas. The fund already amounts to upwards oft3251). OXFORD, Jan. 31.—At a meeting of the heads of houses yesterday, it was agreed that a petition to Parliament from the University, against the union of the sees of St. Asaph and Bangor, should be submitted to convocation for its adoption on Thursday. FRENCH ANTIPATHY.—" At a late dinner at the Chateau of the Tuileries, the King called out, I M. Dupin, I wish you would try this bird [a black cock]; I don't know the name of it, but it comes from Scotland.' No, thank you, Sire,' replied A1. Dupin I don't like anything English!'
