NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. J. W. -M." Swansea, is thanked for his communication. We shall rely on his veracity for such facts as in future he may choose to favour us with. The Epitaph on Margery Scott" next week. ONr, OF THE NEWPORT COUNCIL," if space will permit, next week.
IN common with the rest of the Principality, and indeed with the greater part of the Church throughout the land, which, has spoken out strongly in deprecation of the heavy blow threatened to the Church in Wales, by depriving it of one of its Bishops, we would earnestly exhort our readers to the adoption of the measures pro- posed, in order to the reversal of that particular Clause in the Bill. That such a reversal will be granted to the prayers of the Church, who can doubt, if they be united and general—especially as the object of the Bill in question (under which the Ecclesiastical Commissioners are already working out many valuable alterations in matters relating to the Church), is simply to give the Church greater efficiency, partly by adapting its resources to the increasing wants of the body, partly by making such arrangements as the geographical position of the different Dioceses, the population, &c., would seem to require.— We freely confess it to be our opinion that much good has been done, and may ever be looked for, by increasing the number of Dioceses, and consequently adding to that body of men, the Bishops, from whose more frequent and immediate presence, and more intimate acquaintance with the Clergy and Church in general, we derive our best hopes of its speedy restoration to former influence and usefulness. But we cannot expect these results, if, according to the present intention of the Bill, the Dioceses of Bangor and St. Asaph are to be united—on the contrary we can imagine no measure moie calculated to discourage the Clergy, and to retard the now onward progress of the Episcopal Church in Wales, than the accomplishment of this purpose. We think it our duty, therefore, to call upon the Diocese of Llandaff to petition in favour of her old British sister of the North, endeared to her by every tie that can bind one Church to another. We copy from an influential London Paper a word of good advice on this subject, so interesting. to every Briton :— The friends of efficient Episcopal supervision in the Church of England will have read with attention the adver- tisement announcing the circulation of Petitions to Parlia- ment for the repeal of so much of the Act of 6 and 7 Will. IV., c, 77, as provides for the suppression of one of the two Bishoprics in North Wales. We cannot use terms more strongly recommending attention to the subject than do the words of the advertisement:—" It is earnestly hoped, that all "members of the Church will exert themselves to maintain the British Episcopate in its present integrity." The petitions, we understand, will lie for signature at the houses of several booksellert- in the parish of Marylebone, and will hardly be neglected by genuine and conscientious members of the Church." WHILST the Citizens of London are, as a, facetious Prebendary has it, laying their heads together on the subject of Wooden Block Pavement—and the Press is assisting in the ligneous and anti-ligneous controversy, the Citizens of Cardiff are beginning to discover that dirt is a nuisance, and that drains are essential to public health, We shall not fail to quicken their apprehensions in these matters, and to apply the stimulating process whenever we find the Car of Improvement" halting in its progress. We do not exactly expect the "rail-road" speed-but the pace of the Tortoise does not satisfy our requirements. We will now gladly turn for a week, whilst the Scavengers are performing their meritorious duties, to the more agreeable task of recording the exertions now making in the Eastern part of Glamorgan- shire, in the Scotch system of Draining. To these exertions the Lectures of Mr. Smith, of Deanston, at the last great Agricultural Meeting at Bristol, have given a strong impetus. The meed of praise must be given to the. Messrs. Romilly for commencing here this important era in husbandry. Through theh- intelligent Farm Bailiff, Mr. Fergus, they have reclaimed many hundred Acres in the Parishes of Porthkerry and Barry, which four or five years ago were almost worthless, but which now produce heavy crops of Corn. Mr. David, of Radyr Court, and Mr. Watson, of St. Nicholas, (the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Cardiff Farmers' Club) have well followed up this useful example, and we couldf, name some Landlords who, at their own cost, are drain-" ing fields for their Tenants, equal to more than 10 per cent, (in some instances 20 per cent.) upon their rental. Their names ought to be had in remembrance, for their example is worthy of all imitation. Mr. Homfray, in Lisvane, Sir George Tyler and Mr. Bassett, in Boulston, Mr. Bruce Pryce, in St. Nicholas and St. Lythan's, Mr. Clive, in St. Fagan's, Mr. Fothergill, at Hensol, Mr. Williams, at Roath, and other Landed Proprietors, whose names do not immediately occur to us, are now employ- ing numerous Workmen in Draining, to the great advantage of their own Property, and to the immense benefit of the otherwise unemployed poor. It is in fact as a means of furnishing the industrious poor with occu- pation in this unexampled time of want of employment, that we strenuously and respectfully urge upon the Landed Proprietors generally the adoption of the plan we have named. If virtue were in this instance its own reward, there would be stimulus enough for Christian philanthropy, for they who employ the poor not only give bread to the hungry, but they do better, they enable the poor to earn it-and far sweeter to the poor man is the food of labour than the food of charity. But it fortu- nately happens that the employment of the poor in the improvement of the soil, if conducted with judgment, as in the cases we have named, brings with it a correspond- ing advantage--rather should we say a four-fold advantage to the employer. Let the system of Draining, sub-soil Ploughing, and Top Dressing be freely carried out, and the effect will be, not only of increasing the produce of Corn per acre, but also of rendering the Land fit for a variety of other Crops. But we are not about to deliver to Landlords and Tenants, far better acquainted than we are with the subject, a Lecture on Agriculture- an attempt scarcely less foolish than that of the Philosopher, who lectured Hannibal on the Art of War- our aim and end has been to encourage, by reference to successful examples, the employment of a portion of our t industrious population for which there is no immediate occupation employment that is twice blessed—blessing him that gives and him that takes-filling the Garners of the one with all manner of store, and the humble Cottage of the other with food and contentment; rescuing the property of the one from tHe curse of sterility, and the whole body of the other from the temptations of want, and the suggestions of despair-the one fulfilling the noblest ends of wealth, the other securing the sweetest rewards of industry. We close these imperfect suggestions with a few practical observations. We would express a hope then that each Landlord, where his Farm is at rack rent, would drain two, three, or more acres, in proportion to the size of the Farm-the Landlord paying for opening and closing, and the Tenant for hauling the stones-or, where stones are not convenient, going to the nearest Depot for the Draining Tiles. In some instances we hear that some of the Landowners (amongst others the Marquess of Bute and Mr. Fothergill) having found the proper clay on their'Estates, intend making their own Tiles, and we have no doubt they will also supply their neighbours. The burden of our song is, increase the produce of your soil by improved cultivation. The first step in this improvement is Drainage, and then follows the use of every assistant which science tested by success- ful experiment has placed at your disposal. You cannot judiciously employ human labour without enriching yo.ur- self-^and unlike the operations in Manufactures, your improvements increase the demand for human labour. It was stated by Dr. Marsham, (the Warden of Mertcn College, Oxford) at a recent Agricultural Meeting in Bucks, that Five Millions of our Northern population eat Oatmeal, and Five Millions of the Irish lived on Potatoes. We hope to live to see the day when good wholesome Wheaten Bread shall form the more substantial food of the Scotch and Irish Labourer—and this blessing will be placed better and speedier within their reach bv adopting the advice of Mr. Gladstone, the father of the accom- plished Vice President of the Board of Trade, with whose words we conclude—for they are words both of encouragement and advice "I think before 1843 expires we shall see considerable improvement in the value of both corn and cattle therefore, in my opinion, the landlords will justly require to have more experience before they enter seriously on the consideration of the permanent reduction of rents under existing leases but let me humbly advise and recommend to them forbear- ance in pressitig for payment, whilst depression continues and, on the other hand, let me exhort all farmers who study their own interest, to devote their attention to improve their cultivation, by strict attention to rotation of crops, by adopt- ing the use of the subsoil-plough, and extending their thorough-drainage, which, with the use of bone-dustfor their green crops, will cause, I am persuaded, an increase of pro- duction, iikely to exceed even their most sanguine expecta- tions and with increased protection afforded by these means against the seasons, whilst it will enable them, in benefiting themselves, to give employment to many of the labouring poor, of which they at present stand much in need." qp THE Northern Division of our Principality is adopting the most active measures to remove the stigma which attaches to Wales, of taking no thought for the Insane Poor, and of being hitherto utterly destitute of any Asylum for their comfort or relief. The Subscriptions (including a grant of Land from a benevolent gentleman) amount to £ 5,000—a sum which authorises the Com- mittee to use the language of congratulation, and to safely anticipate the accomplishment of so desirable an object as the Erection of a Public Hospital for Pauper Lunatics. We have, on more than one occasion, invited public attention to the same end in South Wales-the Population of which greatly exceeds that of the North, and its claims upon public sympathy are still more numerous and urgent. Amongst our Landed Proprietors it will not be difficult to find another Joseph Ablett, (who has given a site consisting of 20 Acres of Landj and amongst the Transmuters of Metal, the true Alchymists, because the only successful ones, the Merchant Princes of Glamorganshire and of the adjoining Counties, whose hearts are as liberal as their wealth is boundless ;-one noble effort would, we are persuaded, open a stream of benevolence that would rival the fabled Pactolus, leaving our Northern neighbours far "astern," but leaving them still the honourable distinction of setting a good example. The most affecting of all our Master's Miracles was that by which at a word he controuled demoniac frenzy-the most touching of all spectacles was that when the maniac, once fierce, naked, and in chains, was seen sitting at the feet of his Saviour, clothed, and in his right mind. Let us do good accord- ing to our power, Let us employ the wealth which God has given us in providing an Asylum for the most pitiable of all sufferers-and directing the investigations and labours of Medical Science into the noblest of all chan- nels, the ministration to minds diseased—the recovenjisof the stricken intellect, the restoration to light and life of those whose dwelling is comparatively among the tombs." THE resistance of France and America to what is called in Diplomacy the Right of Search, is but another mode of perpetuating the Slave Trade. Under the flimsy dis- guise of a jealousy for national honour lies, we suspect, avarice the most sordid, and cruelty the most heartless, joined to the most miserable pretences, and the most detestable hypocrisy. It were worse than absurd to look at the question in any other light. The Flag of America is prostituted to the vilest of all contraband traffics, denounced by Heaven and civilized Man-a traffic in human flesh-and the abomination is protected because it i covered by imposture. It were as though the Aristocracy of England should combine to protect a member of the swell mob, because he had practised his knavery in the disguise of a gentleman. It is the flag that covers the cargo,"—it is the dress that protects the pickpocket.—Admirable reasoning Who can speak with patience of such absurdities ? The Speech of Lord Brougham, on the first night of the Session, fully exposed the nonsense of Mons. De Toqueville on this subject— whilst he rescued France from the imputation of encouraging, under any pretence, the abominations of the Trade in Slaves. The sincerity of his Lordship's defence of the great nation we do not dispute, though we have very great doubts of the correctness of his opinions. We believe that the real question at issue is, whether or no the Slave Trade shall be utterly abolished, or, whether under some other name, or lurking under some other disguise, it cannot be carried on. Of all the maritime powers Great Britain had need be most jealous of, the Right of Search, but this right she has conceded to the great cause of humanity, and it cannot for a moment be supposed that the reluctance of France or America to follow this great and glorious example arises from national pride.—Why for every French or American Vessel exposed to this ordeal Great Britain has at least ten. No, America is too deeply tainted with this infernal Trade to do right and justice in this matter. The Masters of Slaves," said Mr. Canning, are not to be trus-ted with making Laws upor. Slavery. The Masters of Slaves, we may add, are not likely to step out of their way to join in a proceeding which stamps their own acts with the character of injustice. It is this, her national sin, that makes America insensible to the degradation that her Flag is used to cover iniquity so enormous- dead to the libel upon her reputation, that the worst of Piracies are committed in her name. It is in vain that the Americans boast of their greatness, their refinement, their freedom, and their morality, when every "sixth man is a Slave, whom his fellow men may buy, and sell, and torture." This is the true cause of the opposition to the Right of Search, and not the groundless jealousies of maritime etiquette and national honour. So long as the Right of Search is resisted by France and America, so long will the wholesale iniquity of the Slave Trade flourish and abound.
APPREHENDED RIOTS IN SOUTH WALKS.—Narberlh workhouse has been recently much excited in consequence of having three threatening notices served upon the inmates. "Rebecca" in her sympathy for them, threatens to attack the house unless the paupers are better taken care of. A mob assembled a few days since and destroyed the Prince's gate. "Rebecca" the commander, who has now two officers whose noms de guerre are respectively "Nell" and Susan" would seem to emulate the late Captain Rock of the sister island; for, besides the other threatening notices which we have mentioned, one has just been received in this town (Carmarthen) breathing destruction to all turnpike gates on a parochial road; and one by Water-street on the old New. castle Emlyn Road is doomed for destruction. What is the most remarkable feature in this insurrectionary movement, for it is an insurrectionary movement, though at present per- haps not very formidable, is that neither the Civil force nor the Military, nor the Yeomanry has been able, not only not to put it down, but has not even succeeded in apprehending a single offender. Thirty veteran pensioners went down from Carmarthen to Saint Clears last week, and a troop of Lancers are daily expected on the spot. Indeed the Captain Rock-like proceedings in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen- shire, seem from all we can learn, to assume daily a more threatening complexion. At first the war was directed against the Toll gates only but now the Workhouses are to be levelled also. It is not the least remarkable circumstance in this extraordinary movement that when the troops appear in one part of the county, "Rebecca" invariably appears in another, perhaps 14 or 15 miles distant. "Rebecca" would appear to have the ubiquity of Sir Boyle Rock's bird-to be in two places at the same time. I

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 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!'
CARDIFF POLICE.—Monday, Feb.…
CARDIFF POLICE.—Monday, Feb. 6. [Before the Mayor.] John Shaiighnessey, Wm. Pittence, and Robert Williams, were charged with stealing coal off a coal yard, near the Bute docks, the property of Mr. Edmunds. The parties were caught in the fact with the coal in their possession. Mr. Edmunds was to-day unwilling to press the matter to a conviction. He was merely anxious that an example should be set by a summary proceeding, if possible, against the delinquents. It is not always possible to enclose several thousand tons of coals, and the case of the present parties who were of mature age, differs materially from that of young, thoughtless urchins, who, if the coals were red hot, would not find them either too hot or too heavy for them. REGIUS PROFESSOR OF DIVINITY AT CAMHIIIDGE.—We are delighted to announce to the numerous friends and admirers of Doctor Ollivant among our readers, that the election for the Regius Professorship has terminated in his favour. It is not only a subject of congratulation to himself, his pupils, and his friends but it is also a. most gratifying coincidence that immediately on the close of his connection with St. David's College, of which, from its infancy, he has been so efficient and able an officer, he should be selected to fill so important and responsible an office in the University of which, in early youth, he was an eminently distinguished member; and in the honours of which he shared in, we believe, an almost unequal degree. The voting was as fol- lows :—For Dr. Oil vant, 4 for Dr. Wordsworth, 2 for Dr. Mill, 1. The electors were, the Rev. W. Whewell, B,D. (Vice-Chancellor), the Rev. George Thackeray, D.D. (Provost of King's), Joshua King, LL.D. (President of Queen's), the Rev. John Graham, D.D. (Master of Christ's), the Rev. Ralph Tatham. D.D. (Master of John's), the Rev. George Adam Browne, M.A., and the Rev. John Brown, M.A., the two senior Fellows of Trinity College. Professor Ollivant took his M.A. degree April 28, 1824, and was created D.D. July 5, 1836. Until very recently he held the office of Vice-Principal, Professor of Hebrew, and Junior Professor of Divinity in St. David's College, Lampeter. He is one of the chaplains to the Bishop of St. David's, is a Canon in the Cathedral Church of St. David's, and of St. Harman's, in the Collegiate Church of Brecon. This pro- fessorship, founded by Henry VIII., 1540, and endowed with a stipend of £ 40 per annum, was augmented by James I., with the rectory of Somersham, in the county of Hunting- don (to which are attached the curacies of Colne and Pidley), of the yearly value of £ 1,770, as returned to the Ecclesiasti- cal Commissioners. It.. t
