H 1 CHCRCHWABDENS.—At the last Easter Vestry for the ap-i pointment of churchwardens for the parish of BedwelltvJ upon a representation being made to Richard Fothergil'l,! Esq., of Tredegar lion works, the senior churchwarden, who lias filled that office for the last twelve years, that the com-fg aiunion plate of the parish church was not such as was desirable, lie, in the course of a few days, presented that church, at bis own expense, with an elegant and chaste set! of vessels for the communion servicc, consisting of two patfii, and a plate for the alms. This is orIN- one of the many proofs of kind, christian feelings and -it- tachment shown by that gentleman towards the Establishedf Church and in these days it is a peculiarly valuable proof.

For the correction of these distressing complaints, b RAMI'TON s PILL or HEALTH affords a simple and effec- tive remedy. NATIVE ART.— Among the exhibitions at the Roya. Academy, a short time since, were two marble busts, by E. H. Baily, R.A., Bristol; one of the Kiallmark, which looks i likeness, for we arc not acquainted with the original; and lie other of Thnlberg, which ail hut breathes. The next in jrder of merit are Sir William Follett, by W. Behnes, and Lhe Earl of by H. AVeekes, 'both of which are. excellent likenesses, and beautifully finished. These are the only works in this department particularly deserving of lotice, for even the bust of the late Sir David'AVilkie, R.A., >y S. Joseph, affords but a very faint idea of that very cele- 'rated and deservedly favourite artist. Of portrait statues ilso, this exhibition is particularly scanty, for there are scarcely more than three which are "Ùescning of notice, 'ither for praise or blame. In the latter particular, His irace the late Duke of Sutherland," by J. Francis, stands ■idieukmsly prominent. It is a downright caricature, and if lis present Grace is not utterly devoid of all filial affection, ie must feel his blood boil to see his father so scurvilly leated. The two deserving of unqualified praise are both igain by E. H. Bailey, who would appear to he a most elfiisli being, for he keeps all the best things to himself. l'hpre arc the late very reverend Dr. AVood, and the late ight Rev. Samuel Butler, D D., which certainly occupy the cry best situations in the room, but their intrinsic merits ully entitle them to that distinction, for the lawn sleeves, iven in the cast, appear almost transparent. CHRISTENING OF THE INFANT PRINCESS.—We have to nnounce that this day Friday, is appointed for the christen- ng of the infant Princess. The baptismal ceremony is to be lerformed at the new Chapel Royal at Buckingham Palace lis Grace the Alchbishop of Canterbury will officiate at the eremony, assisted by the Bishop of London. The Earl of rersey, Master of the Horse; the Earl of Liverpool, the lord Steward, and the other leading officers of the Roval iousehold are commanded to be in attendance at 12 o'clock in that day. Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester to be one of the sponsors, but who the other sponsors are as not transpired. It has reached us through a medium on ihich even- reliance maybe placed, that the interesting event rill be conducted as privately as possible, consistent with he illustrious birth of the Royal infant. The Queen Dowager, heir Royal Highnesses the Duchess of Gloucester, Duke .nd Duchess of Cambridge, and Princess Augusta, Prince ieorge, and the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg Strelitz, and he principal ministers of State, are invited to the solemnity, rhe cards of command and invitation were issued from the ord Chamberlain's office on Saturday last. TIIE BRITISH HOLLANDS DISTILLERY COMPANY AND ASSOCIATION FOR TIIE PRODUCTION OF HOIE BRANDIES, LND ALL OTHER SriRiTrous LIQUORS.—It is with us a fixed irinciple to give a decided preference to every article of home rrowth or manufacture, whenever we perceive any fair ap- •roximation in its quality to a similar production of foreign irigin. In the course of rather extensive wanderings over lie Continent of Europe, curiosity has led us to visit one or wo of the largest establishments in Holland, celebrated for listilling the finest description of the liquor so well-known o connoisseurs under the name of "Schiedam and it has, re now, been matter of surprise to us, that the Dutch should lave been so long allowed to remain in quiet possession of a 'monopoly" to which they can show no just title. Hollands," however pure and mellow, does not, in reality, we its excellence to a. foreign soil or climate. It is a corn- pirit, produced by a process just as easily followed in England as any where on the other side of the German )cean, and we are glad to find that our opinion on this sub- ect is proved correct by the British Hollands bistillery Com- pany, a sample of whose Schiedam we have tasted, and Ironounce it to be excellent.—Farmers' Journal, Monday, day 2yth. IMPORTANT TO LNENROLLED BENEFIT SOCIETIES.—At Jary-la-boiine police-office, John Savage, landlord of the ■lechanics' Institution Inn, Circus-street, New-road, ap- eared to answer a summons promoted by Messrs. James Iaiming and John Howes, jun., for retaining in his pos- ession a number of articles enumerated below, which they laimed as trustees of a friendly, society.—Air. Pelham, who ppeared as solicitor for the complainants, stated that the property consisted of four canopies and their coverings, three hrones (laughter), five pedestals, two mahogony desks and tands, seven wands, one box and regalia (a laugh), an ivory ind a silver hammer, five swords (loud laughter), two bal- otting boxes, a banner, and other things. It would occur it once to the magistrate that some friendly society had to lo with this. --Nlr. Rawlinson What, with swords! Thero s nothing very friendly about swords! (laughter.) -Nl r, Pelham: The complainants were trustees of the Royal Prince Albert Lodge of the Improved Order of Old Friends," vhich lodge once held its meetings at Air. Savr,ge\s house, mt had lately removed. The society was not enrolled, and he above-named articles, which had been in Mr. Savage's lossession for safe custody, were claimed upon his written Lcknowledgment, that lie was indebted to Messrs. Manning Illd Howes in the sum of £ 80 as a sort of penalty, in the went of his failing to deliver them up when legally de- nanded. —John Collett proved the hand-writing of the lefendant to the acknowledgment referred to by Mr. Pelham. -Thomas Higgins stated that he accompanied the com- ilainants when they required the defendant, to deliver up he property, and that he refused, alleging that his legal ad- isers had instructed him to do so and, as treasurer, he. hould continue to pay the sick, &c. The society and Mr, ■Savage had fallen out, and the lodge was removed from his unise just before.—John Brindell, appraiser, of No. 21, _,arl..street A\ est, Edgware-road, said he had sc-an the pro- )ei ti. in question, and had valued it at E 12 4s. The de- endaut, in answer, said lie retained the articles by virtue of in authority signed by upwards of loo of the brothers of the odge, and which document he put in.—Mr. Rawlinsou hought the question should be settled in a court of law. In its opinion, the Act of Parliament did not give him authority o pronounce a decision in a case so intricate. The Act lermitted a magistrate to order the restitution of property llegally detained and of a certain value, but here he thought he articles were detained with just cause. He should, herefore, dismiss the summons. The Great Western, from Liverpool, arrived at New York in tlio 12th ult., after a passage of twelve days and thirteen lours The rich legatee of Air. Arkwright is not Sir R. Wigram, jut his brother, A ice Chancellor Sir James AVigram.
