THE TRACY PEERAGE.—The case of the Tracy Peerage, the estates of which are very extensive in Gloucestershire, came on for consideration before a Committee of Pri- vileges, it having been pending for some years; and evidence has been given from time to time in support of the claim, as it was collected. At this sitting, some documentary evidence of an important nature was put in, and several witnesses gave their testimony at the bar, both being directed to prove the lineal descent of Mr. Tracy, who claims the honours and dignity in question. When the evidence had been given, another day was asked for by the claimant's counsel to produce further evidence, to which request the committee immediately acceded, and the first Tuesday after the Easter holydays was named for that purpose. The Cheltenham Journal says We hear from some quarters that the decision will affect a vast amount of property, including all Lord Sudeley's Gloucestershire pro- perty, and the noble estate of Mr. Lawrence at Sandywell, while others as confidently tell us that the claimant may possibly secure the dignity, but that the- estates will be un touched; be that as it may, the agitation of the matter causes a great sensation in this neighbourhood, and numbers are not wanting who wish Mr. Tracy may gain possession of both dignities and estates—or, as they term it-' enjoy his own again. MONMOUTH.—THE LATE BELL FRACAS.—On Saturday week, citations were served on four persons at Monmouth, from the Ecclesiastical Court at Hereford, at the instance of the Rev. G. Roberts, for ringing the parish bells against the consent of the vicar, on the occasion of a wedding, some time since. A fifth citation was in the hands of the messen- ger, but he was unable, from absence of the party, to serve it. These proceedings were threatened at the time of the alleged offence, but as some weeks elapsed without any notification of them, one of the ringers waited on the vicar, to thank him for his consideration. The party was astonished, however, to find that he was mistaken in his calculation, for he was assured by the vicar, that proceedings were then in progress against the' whole of the ringers, but which should be abandoned upon their paying the expenses and making such an apology as would establish the rev. gentleman's claim to the control of the bells. The ringers accordingly consented to apologise to the vicar and to pay the expenses, but the rev. gentleman insisted upon the apology, which he dictated, being published in four newspapers of three different coun- ties. This was at first refused by the former, but ultimately four of the number acceded, upon the vicar refusing to alter his terms. The remaining five adhered to their original resolution, and hence the present severe proceedings. Great surprise and very general disapprobation have been ex- pressed at the unexpected course which the rev. vicar has taken after so lengthened an interval, and which gave so much scope for the exercise of that Christian forbearance, forgiveness, and charity, so becoming a minister of the Gospel of Peace. The issue is the more extraordinary as in the rev. gentleman's own dictated apology, he attributed the error of the ringers to their ignorance of the law and the excitement of the moment. This being the vicar's recorded opinion, one would have imagined that terms less severe might have been exacted, as the penalty of an offence com- mitted against one who should exemplify in his practice and example the reality of those doctrines and principles he re- commends to others. The case came on before the court at Hereford on Wednesday last. Several technical objections were taken by the Proctor for the defendants, and the fur- ther proceedings were adjourned until the next court day, in April.-Meriii;. NOTICES, &c.

They are particularly recommended to be taken before persons euter into the matrimonial .state, lest the indiscretions of a parent are the source of vexation to him the remainder of his existence by afflicting his innocent but unfortunate offspring with the evil eruptions of a malignant tendency, and a vrriety of other complaints, that are most assuredly introduced by the same neglect and imprudence. The Cordial Balm of Syriacum s intended to relieve those persons, who, by an immoderate ndulgeDCe of their passions, have ruined their constitutions, or n their way to the consummation of that deplorable state are affected with any of those previous symptoms that betray its approach, as the various affections of the nervous system,obsti- uate gleets, excesses, irregularity, obstructions, weaknesses, total impotency, barrenness, &c. A perseverance in its use has been the happy means of relieving many thousands, and of restoring a great number to the permanent enjoyment of life. It is remark- able for its efficacy in all disorders of the digestive organs, and is especially reco:nmended to those, who, from the irregularities of youthful age, habits of studious application, or a life of pleasure, have fallen into a despondent state of mind, and that distressing train of symptoms commonly denominated the ncrvoas. In such persons the mental are not less enfeebled than the corporeal, and to them a remedy that acts with efficacy, without interfering with domestic habits is peculiarly desirable.

It will be remembered that (in November, 1841) for several days previous to the birth of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and up to the morning of the day preceding her Majesty's accouchement, the Queen, accompanied by her illustrious consort, prome- naded daily, as usual, in the private grounds attached to Buckingham Palace; thus showing that the general health of the Sovereign upon that occasion, as upon the present, continued in its usual state of excellence to the latest period. RATHER STRAI,GIE. -Last week as a lad was cleaning a first-floor window in the High-street, his cloth fell from the ladder on which he was mounted. A lady passing at the instant deliberately picked it up and put it in her muff, and before the window-cleaner could reach terra firma in search of his cloth, the finder had carried off her prize. He, how- ever, gave chase, and on being challenged, the lady, as deliberately as she had taken it, drew the duster out of her muff and returned it.—.WaKfofcwe Journal.
To the Editor of the Advertiser and Guardian. SIR,—Although a comparative stranger in your town, I mav not be deemed impertinent if I intrude one or two brief oh*er- 4 vations on your attention. In the first place I hope thenar i,/ has gone by when it was necessary to argue for the necessity r of the existence ot a Mechanics' Institute, yet 1 deem it a verv important enquiry, how it is that after a tolkble acquaint^ Vr with all the large towns of Gloucestershire, Somerset, "Worces- r tershire, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Berks, Surry, Sussex, Kent, ,7 Herts, Essex, &c., &c., it is reserved for me to find in the • j towp of Cardiff the most apathetic Mechanics'Institute, all [ circumstances considered, it has been my lot to know. It has ,fi generally happened that when an institution has failed, it hag been in consequence of the inefficiency or inactivity of the *< Secretary, but on the contrary I can bear cheerful testimony J0 the Perseverance and indefatigable energy of Messrs. Clin- atJJu lr0W ? t0 the ACTMTY of President, "Whitlock Isicboll. Esq. It appears to me, Sir, that the town is not realjy impressed with the importance and necessity of such an I Institution. Will you pardon me if 1 say that it is the duty "diligent Person in the town to ask himself or her- ,L)r" self if it isi right to support the Mechanics' Institute, and then A what can be done to support it. When I looked on the books ;1: I found many uncnt, and some covered with dust, and I natu- f' rally said are there members, and if there are do they read ? 4 I lectured several times, and found but few attended, and I said, it there are members do they ever hear ? I naturally Z. enquired do the inhabitants of the town know that, thiough i the kindness of the Marquess of Bute, that valuable and most 7 interesting series of books, the Bridgewater Treatises, and numerous others, the monthly periodicals, the daily papers, can be had at a quarterly charge which makes them accessible II to all ? and of course in proportion as members increase book., I may be added to the library. I need say nothing of the im- ib portance of the cultivation of reading hibiti;I need not here reiterate the noble and oft quoted thought of Addison, that the man unblessed by education, however noble bis mind, is only like a fine unhewn piece of marble in the quarry. A taste for books communicates a blessing which lives in the heart, when the eye is too dim to read afresh, and the ear is too dull «y to drink in new sounds; the impressions communicated by 1 f. the writings of Scott, Bulwer, and Dickens, the reasoning of- Chalmers, Brown, and Stewart, the discoveries of Brewster, ML I L a.nd1Combe never die, the memory does not retain all the labyrinth of the tale or the argument, but the impression of the poet or the philosopher is stamped on the heart, and next to the hallowing influence of religion, there is no power so consolatory as literature. I remain, Sir. yours very respectfully, n j.jr ..j Jt EDWIN PAXTON HOOD. Cardiff, Aprd 4tb, 1843.
DREADFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION.—TWENTY- SEVEN LIVES LOST. At Newcastle-on-Tyne, one of those fearful catastrophes, unfortunately so common in this district, occurred on Wed- nesday morning, shortly before 8 o'clock, in the Stormont Main Collieij, the property of Mr. John Grace and part- ners, at Wreckington, about two miles from this place, and was attended by a tremendous sacrifice of human life, there having been 27 men and boys killed, and six or seven others seriously injured. The catastrophe, though thus melan- choly in its results, does not appear to have been marked by any of those violent and appalling circumstances which have frequently attended accidents of a similar nature in this •- neighbourhood. The men employed at the mouth of the pit had no conception that such an accident had occurred until a boy was drawn up much burnt, and even then they were made aware of but a small extent of the calamity. There were upwards of 50 persons engaged in the pit at the time; and of these more than 30 worked in the western part of the mine where the explosion occurred. The damage done to the pit is remarkably trifling, scarcelj exceeding in value a few shillings, not so much as a prop having been driven from its place. Nor did the bodies of the sufferers present any of those harrowing features which are generally witnessed after an explosion very few were burnt at all, and even they comparatively slightly, while the majority were perfectly uninjured. There is, therefore, little, if any — doubt, that the loss of life is attributed, not to the fire, but to the after damp," or, less technically speaking, the noxious gas which succeeded, and was produced by the ex- plosion. How the accident originated will probably remain matter of conjecture. The most current explanation-and the one which most readily suggests itself-is, that while Mr. Matthias Gray, the under-viewer (and one of the suf- ferers), was passing a working which had been for some days considered to be in a dangerous state, the foul air was 1; ignited by his light; and the men who were employed on both sides of that place were these who perished. -q 'i THE LAUT-LEATSHIP.-Our readers will, we think, be gratified to learn that her Majesty has offered the office made vacant by the death of his friend Southey to Words- worth. Her Majesty deserves all honour for this fitting tribute of respect to the greatest of living poets-to one whose pure and exalted mind has ever been devoted to the cause of virtue and of cheerful godliness. Mr. Wordsworth has gratefully declined the proffered honour on account of his age. CERTIFICATES OF MARRIAGE The following letter is from the Office of Stamps and Taxes, dated, London, April 4, 1843 Sir,-I have laid before the Board of Stamps and Taxes your letter of the 17th ult., and in reply I am directed to inform you, that a certificate of anarriage' is liable, under the stamp act of 55th George III., c. 184, to a stamp duty of 5s. but a certified copy of or extract from the parish register of marriages does not come within that description. On such copies or extracts no stamp duty is — chargeable, by whomsoever signed or given. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, Thomas Keogh, Assistant-Secretary.—The Rev. John Thomas." V; HONEYMOON EXTRAORDINARY.—The men of the 4th Dragoons, at present stationed at Chichester, have evinced such a very strong anti-Malthusian disposition, that the officers have found it necessary to subject them to a very strong check. On Sunday se'nnight a happy pair" were joined together in the bonds of wedlock at the subdeanery church, but the bridegroom and father" had no sooner reached the barracks than they were placed in confinement for breach of discipline in getting married 11 without leave." Ten couple have had an unpleasant veto put on their pro- gress in the course of love, which, of a truth, certainly never does run smooth. CiiiNA.-Extract of a letter from Chusan, dated Dec., 1842 This island is assuming already an active and bustling appearance (at least, this town, Tinghae, the capital) from the number of Chinese tradesmen, artificers, &c., which are now established here, and seem very peaceable and well disposed towards us and our authority, and the mandarines are very civil, and in no way troublesome. All this arises from the good conduct of our troops and people, and the punctuality with which everything is paid for. The China- men begin to see very plainly the great benefit to themselves by their trade and intercourse with us. The island is a very beautiful one, and seems very well, indeed, adapted for a principal trading place for us. A great deal might be made of it, but as we are to give it up when all the money is paid, it is not worth while to go to any expense. The climate is very fine now. Chusan has not been at ail overrated by Captain Ouchterloney's published account of it last year, or by Sir James Urmston's description, published I few years ago. It is a noble island foj a British colony. COOPER, THE CIIARTIST.-This Cooper is a singular m-- Well informed on many points-quick, subtle, and remark- ably fluent, he raises great expectations of a display of extraordinary ability, which his performances do not realize. His shrewditess and subtlety rarely elevate him above craft and cunning; and he exhibits a deficiency in those higher powers which are the usual attributes of a noble mind. Self-conceit and love of notoriety appear to be his beset- ments. The maggot of vanity has got into his head, and is eating away his brain one consequence is, that throughout this trial he has afforded a fine exemplification of the maxim insisted on by the gentlemen of the legal profession, that he who conducts his own case has a fool for his client. Cooper having been previously convicted of conspiring with Feargus O'Conner and others in Lancashire, will probably receive a higher sentence than Richards but the sentence on Cooper, under this conviction, is likely to be very slight-Stafford- shire Mercury. Dr. Bailey, recently convicted for forgery, was shipped for New South Wales on Wednesday se'nnight. Mr. Mordon, the inventor of the patent pencil-case, died very suddenly at an early hour on Monday se'nnight of apoplexy, after only an hour's illness. He had been previ- ously in perfect health.
