REPUDIATION OF THE AMERICANS BY THE REV. SYDNEY SMITH. TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE MORNING CHRONICLE. Sir—having been unwell for some days past, I have had no opportunity of paving my respects to General Duff Green, who (whatever be his other nuyi^h) has certainly not shown liiiuselt a Washington in defence of his country. The General demands, with a beautiful simplicity, Whence this morbid hatred of Amp-rica ( But thin question, all-affecting as it is, is stolen from fLtl)IC8 A 1"x," tjays Pilpay, "caught by the leg in a trap near the farm-yard, utterred the most piercing crie* of distress; forthwith all the birds ot the yard gathered round liiin, and seemed to delight in his misfortune; Lens chuckled, geese hissed, ducks quacked, and cliaati clerr, with shrill cockadooles, rent the air.

You ought to- die the worst ol deaths—to be pecked into a thousand pieces. Now hence Genral Green, comes the morbid hatred of America, as you term it. J Because lier conduct has been predatory—because she has ruined so many helpless childreii, so many miserable women, so many aged men—because she has disturbed the order of the world, and rifled those sacred treasures which human virtue had hoarded for human misery. Why is such hatred morbid? Why, is it not just, iiipviuble, inna'e? Why, is it not disgracelul to want it? Why, is it not honourable to feel if Hale America! I have loved and honoured America all my life and in the Edinburgh Reciaw, and at all oppor- tunities which my trumpery sphere of action has adorded, I have never ceased to praise and defend the United States; and to every American to whom I have had the good tortune to be introduced, I have proffered all the hospitality in my power. But I cannot shut my eyes to enormous dishonesty; nor, remembering their former state, can I restrain myself from calling on them (though I copy Satan) to spring up from the gulf of infamy in which they are rolling. Awake, arise, or I;e for ever lallen." I am astonished that the honest States of America do not draw a Cordon Sanitaire round their unpaying bretlirren, that the truly mercantile New Yorkers, and the thoroughly honest people of Massachussetts, do not in their European visits wear an uniform with S. S., or Solvent States," worked in gold letters upon the coat, and receipts in full of all demands tamboured on the waistcoats, and" our own nroDertv" figured on their naotaloons. But the General seems shocked that I should say the Americans cannot go to war without money but wbat do I mean by war? Not irruptions into Canada—not the embody- ing of militia in Oregon, but a long tedious maritime war of four or five years' duration. Is any lUan SII foolish as to suppose that Rothschild has nothing to do with such wars as these? and that a bankrupt State, without the power of borrowing a shilling in the world, may not be crippled in such a contest? We all know that the Americans can iighl. Nobody doubts their courage. I see now in my minds's eye a whole army on the plains of Pennsylvania in buttle array, immense corps of insolvent light infantry regiments of heavy horse debtors, battalions of repudiatois, brigades of bankrupts, with Vivre sans payer, ou mourir on their banners and cere alirno on their trumpets all these desperate debtors would fight to the death for their country, and probably drive into the sea their invalling creditors. Of their courage, I repeat again, I have nt) doubt. I wish I had the same confidence in their wisdom. But I believe they will become intoxicated by the flittei-y of unprincipled orators; and instead of entering with us into a noble competition in making calico (the great object for which the Anglo-Saxon race appears to have been created), they will waste their happiness and their money (if they can get any) in years of silly. bloody, foolish, and accursed war, to'prove to the world that Perkins is a real fine gentleman, and that the carronadesot the Washington steamer will carry farther than those of the Britisher Victoria, or the Robert Peel vessel of war. I am accused of applying the epithet repudiation to States which have not repudiated. Perhaps so but then these latter States have not paid. But what is the dillerence between II man who says, I don't owe you any thing, and will not pay you," and another who says,"Ittooweyouasum,"and who having admitted the debt, never pays it? seems in the first to he some slight colour of right, hut the second is hroad, blazing, refulgent, meridian fraud. It may be very truc. that rich and educated men in Penn- sylvania wish to pay the debt, and that the real objectors are the Dutch and German agriculturists, who cannot be made to understand the effect of character upon clover. All this may be very true, but it is a domestic quarrel. Their chtircti- I wardens of reputation must make a private rate of infamy for themselve-we have nothing to do with this rate. The real, epiarrej is the Unpaid World versus the State of Pennsylvania. And now, dear Jonathan, let me beg of you to follow the advice of a real friend, who will say to you what Wat Tyler bad not the virtue to say, aril what all speakers in the eleven receut Pennsylvanian elections have cautiously abstained from saying," make a great effort; book up at once and pay." liiu have no conception of the obloquy and contempt to which nil are exposing yourselves all over Europe. Bull is naturally disposed to love, you; but he loves nobody who does not pay him. His imaginary paradise is some planet ot punctual payment, where ready money prevails, and where debt and discount are unknown. As for me, as soon as I hear that tiie last farthing is paid to the last, creditor, I will appear on my knees at tiie bar of the Pennsylvanian Senate, in the piumeopicean robe of American controversy. Each conscript Jonathan shall trickle over me a few drops of tar, and help to decorate me with those penal plumes in which the vanquished reasonerot the Transatlantic world docs homage to the physical superiority ol his opponents. And nnw, having eased my soul of its indignation, and sold my stock at. 40 per cent. discount, I sulkily retire from the subject, with a fixed intention of lending no more money to free and enlightened republics, but of employing my money henceforth in huying up Abyssinian bonds and purchasing into the Turkish Fours, or the Tunis Tliree-and-'a-Halt per Cent, Funds. SYDNEY SMITH. DOMESTIC LIBRARIES" AT THE ROYAL PALACES,— Her Majesty, with that kmd regard which she has eivr manifested for the eomfort'and intellectual enjoyment of the rowal domestics, has just caused to be carried into effect a most. praiseworthy design, emanating entirely from herself and his Royal Highness Prince Albert, for the establishment of "domestic libraries" in the respective servants'-halls, both at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. Her Majesty has made a. donation of £ 100 for the purchase of books to commence with, and has also very liberally pre- sented a great variety of works of a useful and instructive character to the domestic libraries," both in town and at Windsor. Prince Albert has also presented £,30 for the same purpose.
[FOR THE CARDIFF ADVERTISER."] THE SHEPHERD AND THE FATHER. By the Author of the Mountain Decameron.' Oh that I were that shepherd boy" while yet a boy, I said, Hearing one singing in his joy, upon a hill-side's sod June's vivid grass beneat,h him green, its blue above his head, Only the fleecy clouds between the landscape and its God Like lambs reposing white, dim seen upon a far hill's breast, So silvery white th' aerial fleece on heaven's blue hill at rest.

Ev'n so the feeling youth who sees some happy parent gather His little flock to climb his knees, anticipates his bliss The bliss, and that alone, aLLs! and sighs to be a father! That shepherd, oil the mountain-grass, thought not of the abyss Of drifted snows, the burial pit, which each warm dell might form, While gazing on its flowers and it-in IVinter's future storm. IV. But Time did bring that fatal snow I saw that shepherd drive His weak flock from the dale below, up, up to keep alive, Up to the bleak wind-beaten hill, all glazed with ice, to sight More drear, but that smoothed valley still more fatal than that height; Woe for that shivering shepherd then, in that wild night-fall scowling, To force his charge from out their pen, all winter round them howling! v. But salder than that shepherd's part, who drives them to the hill, The fathers 1 those of his own heart and blood, far dearer still, To drive forth from their native pen, to earn their bitter bread, Forth to the world and worldly men (as to the cold hill head, And mercy of the winter winds that shepherd drives his flock,) Commit their tender hearts and minds to its terrific rock.

OLD NEWSPAPERS.—Many people take newspapers, bu few preserve them yet the most interesting reading ima- ginable is a file of old newspapers. It brings up the very age, with all its bustle and every-day affairs, and marks its spirit more than the most laboured descriptions of the his- torian. Who can take a paper dated half a century ago, without the thought that almost every name there printed is now upon a tombstone at the head of an epitaph 1 REMARKABLE ANAG -Pilate's question to our Lord, What is truth 1" in the Latin vulgate stands thus: Quid est Veritas I These letters transposed-Est vir giii adest- It is the man before thee." A HINT TO AUTHORS.—John Bull gives the following very salutary hint, and one which might be used by the con- ductors of newspapers in general, in its notices-" To COH- P,ESPON DFNTS. Pray send me a paper if noticed.' This "ry modest request frequently accompanies the transmission of pamphlets, and other publications, for review. Our reply to all such applications is, 'pray look out for the notice, and should there li t one, forthwith buy a paper, if yuu have chs bad taste not to read its regularly. CURIOUS BILL.-The following is a copy of a joiner's bill for jobbing in a Roman Catholic Church, in Bohemia, literally translated from the German :—For solidly repairing St. Joseph, 4d. for repairing the Virgin Mary before and behind, tts.; for turning a nose for the devil, putting a hora upon his head, and glueing a piece of his tail, 4s. 3d. FLATTERY PUNISHED.-—A foreigner instructed the Princess Charlotte in singing and music. On one occasion, she performed to a large party, and was, of course, highly a pplauded, but she was conscious she did not deserve it. Tnrning round to her teacher, she asked his opinion. He said that sne sung delightfully, and played charmingly. Ifer Royal Highuess took no further notice of the matter at that moment, but when the sycophantish preceptor called on her the following day, one of the household was desired to pay him, and, at the same time, to tell him that her Royal Highness could not expect to profit by the instruction of a person who was mean enough to flatter her against his reason, and who had not candour enough to tell her when she was wrong, but suffer her to expose herself. A morning paper, speaking of Braham's appearance, says the veteran vocalist seems to set Time at defiance. This is, to say the least of it, an equivocal compliment to a musical i. an. UTILITY OF GEESE AND ASSES TO FARMERS.—It has been long remarked, that cattle of all kinds are never un- healthy where geese are kc-pt in any quantity; and the reason assigned is simply this, that geese consume with im- punity certain noxious weeds and grasses which taint more or less, according to their abundance, the finest paddocks depastured by horses, bullocks, and sheep. Most farmers are aware of this, and in many places where the beeves ap- pear sickly, change is tried, and the soil which the cacklers tread is converted for the time being into a sort of infirmary. The pasturing of two or three a»ses with sickly cattle has also been found productive of the best effects, from a similar reason.

Ah! me for aught that ever I could read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth But either it was different in blood; Or else misgrafled, in respect of years Or else it stood upon the choice of friends Or if there were a sympathy in choice, War, death, or sickness did lay siege to it; Making it momentary as a sound, Swift as a shadow, short as any dream Brief as the lightning in the collied night, That in a spleen unfolds both heaven and earth, And ere a man hath power to say, Behold!" The jaws of darkness do devour it up; So quick bright things come to confusion. MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. Act I. Scene I. IT has been shown that the frequent mention made of the name of Laura Spencer, and the allusions to her person and character in the hearing and presence of Edwin Herbert, had induced him to seek an opportunity of obtaining a view of the lady and that he effected his object under circumstances which induced him subsequently to address her in a strain of friendship, if not avowed love. Edwin was certainly dis- appointed in not receiving an instant reply to his communi- cation but when in his cooler moments he reflected on the mysterious character it bore, he thought himself hardly entitled to the notice he expected. Laura had showed con- siderable prudence in not replying to his communication immediately; and she thought, as Christmas was drawing JIlgh, she would wait and hear what further the young man had to say, verbally, before she committed her thoughts to his scrutiny on paper. It was the month of October when Laura made this determination—a long way from Christmas, at least, for a lover. Edwin was quite impatient, and although he had himself determined not to write again, he induced the elder sister to incorporate in her letters certain remarks which he hoped would induce Laura to write. But Laura's decision was not to be altered any more than his own, and thus the time passed heavily to both parties. It was in the early part of the month of December, when a circumstance arose in the family of the Herberts which cast a gloom over all the household. The youngest of Edwin's sisters, a sweet creature, about fourteen years of age, was taken ill with what appeared to he rheumatism. The complaint at first was treated as such, but an expe- rienced practitioner having been called in, he pronounced it to be a disease of the bone, which could only be removed by amputation of the leg. He recommended immediate change of air, as the general health of the patient was giving way and as no immediate danger might be anticipated, he thought it further advisable to enliven her spirits by a change of scene, and prepare her for the operation which he assured Jieaj must take place, Laura had been made acquainted with these circumstances, and with the compliance of the aunt, invited Mrs. Herbert to send Lucy on a visit to Laburnum Cottage. An opportunity thus offore(I itself of complying with the directions of the medical adviser, which it would have heen unwise to reject, and the affiictcd girl was placed under the care of Laura Spencer, her dear and beloved friend at Laburnum Cottage. Lucy Herbert had scarcely been there a week when a letter was addressed to her mother, inquiring if the operation had been performed and if not, recommending it to be done without delay. Dr. Hawkesworth, who resided in the village of Leighsholm, was appointed to amputate the diseased limb, a gentleman whose professional skill was known very far beyond the retired village in which he chose to reside. As may be supposed, Edwin Herbert had not suffered his sister to be removed from home to Laburnum Cottage without attending her thither; and it may be conjectured further, that under the circumstances it was but reasonable he should remain in the neighbourhood. This he did, and, in a few days, formed of necessity a delightful intimacy with his beloved Laura—for note he loved indeed. The illness of his dear sister was, however, a sad drawback to the enjoy- ments he might otherwise have realized, and while on the one hand he waited for the sunshine, on the other he was continually threatened with darker gloom. Lucy bore ul) like a true heroine under her sufferings, and became fully resigned to her fate and when her brother announced to her the necessity of parting with her limb, she eheelfully consented and acceded to the operation being performed immediately. According to appointment, Dr. Hawkesworth attended at Laburnum Cottage, on the morning of the 20th of December, in company with two other professional gentlemen, and pro- ceeded to perform the aperation. Besides these and the nurse, Edwin and another friend, were only allowed to remain in the room. In the short space of four minutes the operation was completed, in a most skilful manner, the visit- ing medical gentlemen declaring that they never witnessed a more clever use of the knife than that displayed on the occasion by Dr. Hawkesworth. In this case the removal of the diseased limb was absolutely necessary to the salvation of life, yet who would but weep over such a wreck of beauty. Lucy Herbert, only fourteen years of just budding into womanhood, lovely as a young rosebud on the breast of May, with a form comely as aught in Nature, and possessing a mind replete with all the witchery of thoughtful power-to see her thus tortured by disease, and torn and lacerated- oh! we cannot longer think upon it. Grateful thanksgivings were offered to Heaven at her recovery (if it might be so called,) which speedily took place; and if, even with the use of the artificial aids usually adopted in such cases, she could not move about with her wonted agility, she was, at least, now free from pain. We said that this circumstance of Edwin Herbert's sister's illness occasioned his visiting Leighsholm, as indeed nearly all of the family were temporarily located in the neighbour- hood to await the issue of poor Lucy's disease; and while, as we/have noticed, a closer intimacy grew between Edwin and Laura Spencer, owing to their thus so unexpectedly having been brought into immediate intercourse the latter was enabled to solve every mystery which had attached to Edwin's past conduct; and although Christmas was not spent with the gaiety which usually characterised the keeping of the festival at home—it was, however, fraught with much of real enjoyment to these loving young folk. The fact that a courtship had commenced between them was not known to any except Fanny Herbert, who was singularly useful to her brother in bearing dispatches, &c. Thus a secret corres- pondence was maintained, and unseen interviews enjoyed between them, while the flame, which grew strong in one breast reflected heat to the other, until at length both mutually burned with such sublimated rapture as nothing earthly could extinguish. The winter season had passed away, and spring, with uni- versal power, had awakened creation from its cold slumber. Despite the ills which had fallen to both families implicated in this history, social blessedness had again restored them to. as much comfort as we are warranted in looking for amid this chequered life. Lucy Herbert had returned home, unfortunately maimed for life, but in the possession of much better general health than she had ever previously enjoyed. The Spencers -tooi with the exception of Laura, who still remained with her aunt, were comfortably resettled, if we may so speak, in their native town. A constant correspon- dence, however,'ifas kept up between Edwin Herbert and Laura Spencer, and so matured between themselves had the arrangements for their union become, they no longer made a secret of their mutual attachment. Edwin made frequent excursions to Laburnum Cottage, at least once a fortnight, yet his visits were by no means so frequent as those of Dr. Hawkesworth, the doctor being in almost daily attendance on Miss Shepherd, who was now fat advancing in years, and, anxious to extend her fading life, thought the surest mode of doing so was by having the doctor as near her as possible. Dr. Hawkesworth was a young man descended from an ancient and honourable family—of affable and win- ning manners, deeply read beyond his profession, having had a first-rate education and in addition of a most prepossess- ing person and bearing. Kate, the old servant of Miss Shepherd, having more than once fancied something the matter with Laura on the score of her affections, was by no means slow in hinting to her some suspicions she held in in reference to the doctor having disturbed her thoughts. This she did not hesitate to do, thoughtlessly, in the pre- sence of Dr. Hawkesworth, who fancied that something more was meant than the old maid really intended. Thus Laura narrowly escaped from receiving certain overtures, which had they been made would have wounded her deeply. In the end, however, the doctor had sufficient discrimination to observe, that if he made one step beyond the point he now occupied he would perpetrate a in he could never atone for, he therefore listened jocundly to old Kate's sarcastic remarks, and wished Laura all the happiness she was capable of in the possession of her Edwin. Laura Spencer had become a great favourite with the in- habitants of Leighsholm, to many of whom—the poor and aged—she had shown numerous little acts of kindness, never to be forgotten. She was also regarded as The Beauty" of the neighbourhood, and, as if it were for the very reason that Laura received the addresses of Edwin Herbert, there were few gentlemen who visited the place considered meet to be compared with him by the poor old villagers, who wished the young people all the felicity their union might ensure. The prospect now open before this loving couple was one of the most delightful character it is possible to conceive. Loved ardently by each other, they had every reason to cal- culate on possessing in themselves the highest form of happiness which can result from affection thus mutually exemplified. Loved, also, by their friends and relatives, the union they were now about to form would be made under their direct sanction and approval, while the blessing of all who knew them was lavishly poured, and expressed i:i the deepest and Intensest wishes for their welfare. Every necessary arrangement had been made for the marriage, which was appointed to take place on the first of May. At the particular request of Miss Shepherd, it was decided to be celebrated at the village church of Leighsholm. The wedding breakfast was to be provided at Laburnum Cottage, after which the party were to set out for a fashionable town, in proceeding to which they must. pass through Laura's na- tive place, where they would lunch with those of the relatives of both, who might not be present at the marriage ceremony. Every arrangement having thus been completed, the ap- proaching day was looked forward to with much anxiety. At length the day dawned, and a brighter May morning never shone upon the world. Mrs. Herbert and her daughters, Laura's father, and her sisters, were among the wedding-party, as a matter of course. Fanny Herbert officiated as principal bridesmaid. At the time to which our tale relates, weddings in the viilage of Leighsholm were by no means numerous; but when one occurred, the number of persons invited was considerable. On this occasion the good old people of the village, who had so often partaken of the charity of Laura, and who, therefore, felt deeply interested 011 her behalf, requested permission, formally, to attend, which request was cordially granted and the singularity of the spectacle thus presented seemed ominous of what so shortly transpired. It seemed like Death attending Life, as the tottering aged folks formed in the procession, and looked more fitted for attendance at a funeral than on this occasion' This would have appeared especially the case, had it not been for the general aspect of joy furnished in the other accessories, and by the delight which beamed in the face of the numerous spectators who thronged together to witness so interesting a sight. The ceremony joyously performed, the honoured bride- groom, with his happy bride and the family party, returned to Laburnum Cottage, where a costly breakfast had been provided. The privileged old people, of whom we have spoken, were regaled, also, with a breakfast at the Leigh Arms Inn, at the cot of Mr. Herbert. Laura retired, on entering the Cottage, with Fanny Herbert into a small parlour that looked out upon the delightful bay. Here these two beautiful young creatures affectionately embraced each other, but Laura was so deeply aiiected with thoughts that crowded upon her, that after a short pause she requested Miss Herbert to leave her for a few moments alone. In the mean time the party were gathering for the breakfast-room, when suddenly a tremendous crash was heard in the direc- tion of the room where Laura had been left. All rushed, as if by impulse, to the ,pot ;-the door was closof-i-fast. Miss Herbert exclaimed, with a fearful shriek, that something serious must have happened to Laura, who was in the room. Edwin instantly put his shoulder to the door to force it open it immediately gave way, and he falling forward with it, another crash, louder than the former, followed, and a mass of ruins buried Edwin beneath. Who shall describe the panic. All fled for their life, ex- pecting that the entire building was falling upon them but the next moment every effort was made to recover the bodies of the lostalas they were buried together. On removing the rubbish, it was found that a beam, which supported the upper floor, had been partially burnt away from the end of it communicating with the ilue and it was supposed that the ceiling first fell in, burying Laura beneath it and the sudden opening of the door by Edwin shook the shattered wall to such an extent as caused it immediately to follow, and bury him also. Oh! mournful event! IN7110 can depict the anguish of the sui-i-ivors ? A fate how dreadful this;—when every hope seemed realised, and all had been attained that love had wished for,-to be thus cut off! Mysterious Providence! The sun that dawned upon their BRIDAL went down upon their GRAVE So quick bright things come to confusion." [C0JiCiV» £ D FBOJI QVR PAFEB Of THE 18TJJ V!.T. J
THE STATE TRIALS IN IRELAND. COURT OF QUEEN'S llEXCH. Mr. Justice Perrin took his seat on the bench, at half-past ten o'clock, to hear motions. At that hour the court was crowded in erery part, principally by members of the bar, amongst whom, as well as the public generally, the utmost anxiety prevailed to learn the decision of the Court as to the validity of the traversers' plea on the grounds argued. The Lord Chief Justice delivered the judgmsnt of the Court, which was listened to throughout with profound at- tention. In this case (said his lordship) of the Queen against Daniel O'Council and others, it now becomes my duty to deliver my own opinion and judgment, in which I am happy to have the concurrence of my learned brethren all the bench. The question turns upon what is the true construction of the act of the 1st and 2nd Victoria, chap. 37. It is contended, on behalf of Mr. O'Connell, in support of his plea, that the operation of that act is to extend only to cases where the officers employed to carry the act into execution are the clerks of the Crown on circuit, or the Clerks of the Peace at Sessions. It is contended, on behalf of the Crown, that there is a narrow construction of the act of Parliament, not accord- ing with its purport or intent, and that it ought to be held to extend to cases going before the Grand Jury of the county of the city of Dublin, either in the Court of Queen's Bench or before the commission of oyer and terminer, or at the commission of oyer and terminer in the country. I am bound to say, that after a great deal of anxious and due deliberation given- to this case, and taking advantage of all the aid that has been afforded me in the argument of the case, by so many very able gentlemen, the decision of my mind, and without much doubt, comes to this-that the construction of the act of Parliament given by the law oificers of the Crown is the right and true one. In the exeri ise of his duty he (the Lord Chief Justice) was bound to declare the unani- mous judgment of the Court to be, that they could not com- ply with the request of the traversers to have lour additional days to plead. If the traversers actually confessed that they had no case at all, it did not differ substantially from the one before the Court; therefore, the opinion of him and his brother Judges was, that Mr. O'Connell must instanter answer to the judgment. The Attorney-General then called on the parties to plead, after which Mr. O'Connell and the other eight traversers entered the court, when their pleas of Not guilty," and The general issue," were handed in by their respective solicitors. The Attorney-General then said he would give notice in the course of the day to the traversers, that on Friday he would move the Court. to fix a day for a trial at bar under the act of William IV. The traversers then left the eourt, and their lordships pro- ceeded to call on the ordinary business upon the list. CHURCH EXTENSION. A meeting of the Incorporated Society for Promoting the Enlargement, Building, and Repairing of Churches and Chapels was held at their chambers in St. Martin's-place 011 Monday se'nnight, the Lord Bishop of London in the chair. There were also present, Sir R. 1-1. Inglis, Bart., M.P., the Venerable Archdeacon Lonsdale, the Revs. Dr. Shepherd, H. N. Norris, and B. Harrison Messrs. W. Cotton, N. Connop, W. Davis, H. J. Barchard, B. Harrison, J. S. Salt, S. B. Brooke, A. Powell, J. Cocks, &c. The secretary read the reports of the sub-committees, and the meeting having examined the cases referred to their consideration, voted grants of money towards building ad- ditional churches or chapels at Alltygryg, in the parish of Llangerick, Glamorganshire; at Kensal-green, in the parish of Chelsea, Middlesex at Wood-green, in the parish of Tottenham, Middlesex; at the district parish of Saint George, Leeds at Cowhill, in the parish of Oldham, Lan- cashire a: Plymouth; and at Trawden, in the parochial chapelry of Colne, Lancashire also towards enlarging by re-building the church at Bovingdon, Hertfordshire; enlarg- ing the church at Owston, Lincolnshire; re-seating or otherwise increasing the accommodation in the churches at Batcombe, Somerset; Burton, Westmoreland; Stroke Golding, Leicestershire; Tavistock, Devonshire; and Wanborough, Wiltshire. The population of these fifteen parishes is 213,614 persons, and the accommodation provided for them in 37 churches and chapels is 29,414 seats, being less than one- seventh of the whole number; while the free sittings are only 9,672, or one free seat for 22 persons. To this iusuffi- cient provision of church-room 5,753 seats will be added when the works above referred to (which include the erection of eight additional churches) have been completed, and 3,788 of those sittings will be free and unappropriated for ever. Among the parishes now assisted are—one which contains 60,000 inhabitants, with church accommodation for less than one-tenth another with upwards of 40,000, and church room for less than one-eleventh; another with 30,000 and church-room for one-sixth another with 23.000, and church-room for less than one-fifth another with 20,000, and accommodation for less than one-seventh one with upwards of 12,000 inhabitants, and church-room for less than one-eighth one with 6,000, and accommodation for one-sixth; and in one parish, seven miles in length and six in breadth, with a population of 3,000 persons, and accom- modation for rather more than one-tenth of that number, a church is about to be built in a district containing 1,500 inhabitants, five miles distant from. the nearest place of worship belonging to the establishment. Certificates of the completion of the works in ten parishes were examined and approved, and the board issued orders to the treasurer for the payment of the grant voted in each case. The population of these parishes is 3",7-n persons and to the former provision of church-room therein, viz.— 3,909 sittings, including 1,507 free seats, 2,300 sittings are now added, ISH1 of which are free and unappropriated. in addition to the cases which have now been assisted, the committee have received notices since their last meeting that applications are about to be made for aid towards building churches at the Swindon station of the Great Western Railway; at Norland, in the parish of Kensington; at Coventry at St. Lawrence, near Ramsgate; at Thorpe A. pre, near Loughborough at Scasalter, near Whitstable at Lynn, Norfolk and at Nenthead, in the parish of Alston, Cumberland; and also towards enlarging or otherwise in- creasing the accommodation in fourteen existing churches. CAUTION TO COAL MINERS.—At the Rochdale Petty Sessions, two coal miners, named James Lee and John Robertson, were charged by Messrs. J. Knowlcs and Co., with leaving their employment without giving notice. It appeared by the evidence of Jacob Rogers, foreman of the colliery, that defendants were engaged by him on the 4th of October, and left on the litil instant, without giving any notice. The rule requiring a fortnight's notice by each party was handed over it had been read to them when they commenced working.—The defendants replied that they had not agreed to give the required notice. —The magistrates advised them to return to their work, and pay expenses, to which they agreed. EXTRAORDINARY ROPE.-On Saturday last, a hempen rope was made at the rope factory of Messrs. Sandys, Carne, and Vivian, of Hayle, which measured 2880 feet in length, and IO inches in circumference, and weighed upwards of five tons—more than 3,000,000 feet of yarn was consumed in its manufacture. It is for one of the inclined planes on the Hayle Railway, and in weight and size exceeds any railway rope of which we have heard. It is, probably, the heaviest ever made in the county, and reflects credit on the roper, Mr. eal.— Cornwall paper. THE ROYAL MINT.—The employes at the Royal Mint are daily at work in striking off the new gold sovereigns and half-sovereigns of 1814, so as to meet the demand that is likely to be made when the royal proclamation, dated the 2nd day of October last, respecting the light gold coinage, comes into operation on the 1st day of January next, as, no doubt, there will be a run upon the Bank of England for the full-weight gold in exchange. From and after the 1st of January, 1844, no goid sovereign will be allowed to be current, or pass in any payment whatever, unless of the weight of five pennyweights, two grains and a half, and every gold half-sovereign of less weight than two penny- weights, thirteen grains, and one-eighth and all those that are deficient are to be cut, broken, or so defaced, that they shall no longer pass in circulation. The amount of bullion at present in the Bank is upwards of eleven million and a half sterling, but a large portion will be required by government for the payment of the December quarter, pay and half-pay of the army and navy, pension-list and the dif- ferent offices, and by the bank for the treasury dividends. HER MAJESTY'S COACHMAN—Her Majesty's State coachman, Mr. Henry Manwaring, died on Sunday se'n- night, leaving a wife and large family to deplore his loss. It is added, he was an old and respected servant of their late Majesties George IV. and William IV., and of the present Queen, and universally esteerjied by fellow servants. He filled the situation as State coachman only ten months- making the deaths of three of her Majesty's State coachmen in less than two years. It is reported in the higher monetary circles that the Bank of England is privately advancing money on transferable British securities at the unprecedented low rate of 2 per cent. per annum. From the source of our information we have no reason to doubt that such is the fact.—Standard. PmzE AT LIVERPOOL.—We rejoice to record the fact that the prize of f50 has been awarded by the Liverpool Aca- demy to Mr. P. F. Poole s picture of the Plague of London." This is honourable to a provincial institution for the promotion of the fine arts. In France, the nation would have come forward long ere this to reward the painter who produced such a work in some of the states of Germany he he would have been honoured with a public triumph in England, however, he is is left to look daily in his own chamber upon the picture he has painted, until, possibly, in due course of time, having long lived with poverty, he dies in want, and nations will compete for the possession of the work he could scarcely exchange for its weight in mutton. LYNCHING IN MISSISSIPPI. The South Western Farmer (Raymond, Mississippi,) of the 10th ult. say—" We have before us a letter from Brandon, dated the 28th October, giving an account of an outrageous act of lynching commit- ted in that neighbourhood on the 27th. A black fellow, named Dave Gridley, had been for some weeks committing many depredations upon the property of the citizens, when he was at length caught, with the assistance of dogs, and de- livered to a guard. Subsequently he was taken from the guard in the night, dragged into the woods, and hung. His body was then thrown into an old house, which was set on fire, together with the body. It is not known who the perpetrators of this outrage were, COMMISSIONERS OF ENQUIRY AT CARDIGANSHIRE.—The Commissioners of Enquiry, since the date of our last sum- mary, has been as follows ;—Leaving Haverfordwest on Saturday morning, they sat at Narberth on that day, and in the course of a sitting of uuusual length, received a very con- siderable number of persons. Deputations from two divisions of Narberth, from the Hundred of Castlemartin, from Begelly and its vicinity, headed by Captain Childs, and from other places, were successively heard, their statements relating, we understand, principally to the operation of the Tithe Act, which was especially complained of, to the bastardy clauses of the poor law, and increase of rates, to the.turnpike system, and the expenses attending the local administration of justice. -kt N At Newcastle-Emlyn, where the Commissioners were, occu- pied all Monday and Tuesday, and at Cardigan, where they sat the two following days, the same general subjects of com- plaint were brought forward. The Commissioners have also examined several magistrates, and have instituted particular enquiries into the workings of the poor law, and they have also gone over the several Union Workhouses at the several places which they have visited. We understand that the Commissioners have also received a good deal of important evidence from various persons, respecting the causes and cir- cumstances of the disorders which have existed in the counties last visited by them. The tolls are not so much dwelt upon as an article in the list of grievances, but we understand that forcible representations have been made to them of the depressed condition of the fanners and labouring classes, and of the general state of public feeling in the neighbourhood they have lately visited. They have gone at considerable length into the case of the tithes commuted in the parish of Pembryn, which has given rise to so much unfortunate excite- ment in that parish. To-morrow they are to renew their enquiries at Aberystwyth, where they will probably be occu- pied two or three days, and then proceed to Rhayader, and subsequently to Presteign. WELSH PEARLS.—The Conway river, in North Wales, was noted for pearl fish, even before the Roman invasion. They were called by the natives Cregyn Dilin, the same as the Mi/d Marjtaritiferi of Linn reus and Suetonius admitted that one of his motives for subduing the country was the pearl fishery in the said river. Pliny also relates that the Romans eagerly sought for these fish, and that they gave the highest value for the pearls found in them and, as a proof of this, he mentions that Julius Cxsar once consecrated a breastplate, set with Welsh pearls, to the goddess Venus Genetrix, and placed it in her temple. Sir Richard Wynne, of Gwydir, presented Queen Catherine, the wife of Charles II., with a splendid pearl from the river Couway, and it is said that it is in the Briiish crown to this day. Lady New- borough had a large collection of these pearls, which she bought from persons who had been so fortunate as to find them and the late Sir Robert Vaughan had enough of them to appear with in court, and a boss and ring to his hat, which were formed from these extraordinary productions, about the year 1700.—From the September number of the" Uwmwl," (t IVelsh periodical published at Aberystwith. GEOLOGICAL CONVULSION.—One of those convulsions of nature, the cause of which can only be guessed at, has taken place at Stybarrow Crag, on the Lake of Ullswater, in West- moreland. The road from Penrith to Patterdale leads through a narrow pass of this huge and rugged mass of limestone, and on Wednesday, the 25th, or on the morning of the 26th ult., immense masses of the rock had fa into the road, and, in some instances had evidently beett-thrown in a horizontal position previous to their being pla&ft iu the situation in which they were found. The convulsion must have produced a series of shocks, as the Patterdale postman observed the first effects in the forenoon of Thursday, and on his return the road was completely blocked up, and many stupendous lumps were rolled into the lake, there to remain as mementos of an eruption, which will, no doubt, be closely investigated by the geologist. This Stybarrow Crag has ever been regarded with much interest, and like the stupendous Pen- manmaur in North Wales, is famous for its dangers, and the many hair-breadth escapes which travellers have met with in crossing its declivities. In 1081 a Scotch pedlar was sitting half asleep, when a movement of the rock took place, which carried him, pack and all, gently into the lake, from which he escaped with only a sound ducking and in 1C88, a young man of the neighbourhood, while on horseback, was, by the slipping of the strata, carried into the water, and narrowly escaped with his life. TUB FINNOE TRAGEDY.—Death has at length released from suffering one of the victims of the sanguinary outrage at Finnoe. Miss Vercker expired a few days since, and an inquest was held on her remains, which was attended by several magistrates, and gentlemen connected with the family. The verdict was-" Died in consequence of wounds inflicted by some person or persons unknown." Mr. Waller still con- tinues in a very precarious state Mrs. Waller, who, along with poor Miss Vereker, behaved with the greatest heroism throughout the murderous attack, is nearly convalescent; but the old butler, William Larkin, is still confined to bed, and suffering severe pain from hi3 wounds. THE RAILWAY INTEREST..—Mr. J. Senior, sharebroker, of Sheffield, in a circular just issued, states that a "remark- able advance has taken place in the shares of the Sheffield and Manchester—from £ 32. a few months ago, to £ 50. and upwards. The issue of the new quarter shares hits placed its finances in an easy position, whilst the creation of another set of stockholders has given the directors the power of making calls upon either. Interest, at the rate of 71 per cent., is guaranteed upon this stock for ten years, at the expiration of which time the traffic will be fully developed it will then, with the original shares, form one capital con- sequently the interests of each set of shareholders will become identical. One of the signs of the times which indicates the advanced views as to railway property, is the recent conver- sion of the shares of the London and Birmingham into stock, which may now be regularly sold as such, in any amount, however small, and is considerell equal in solidity to the Government funds. The Duke of Norfolk has directed all the game slaughtered on his preserves at Arundel Castle to be given to the inhabitants, indiscriminately, of the town. The ship-building trade in Sunderland, which in common with the other interests of that port has been so long de- pressed, is beginning to show signs of revival, several orders having recently been received for ships to be built for the India trade. In one instance the order has been for three, and in another for seven vessels. THE QUEEN'S YI.ITS. -It is Her Majesty's intention to honour Sir Robert Peel with a visit at his residence at Dray- ton Manor on Tuesday, the 28th instant. Her Majesty will proceed from Windsor Castle to Watford, and thence by tail- way to Drayton Manor, to remain till Friday, the 1st of Dec. when Her Majesty will go on a visit to his Grace the Duke of Devonshire. On Monday, the 4th of December, the Queen will honour the Duke of Rutland with a visit at Bel- voir Castle, and return to Windsor Castle on the 7th. Her Majesty will be accompanied by His j.lojal Highness Prince Albert and we learn that Her Majesty the Queen Dowager ,or has signified to Sir Robert Peel her intention to join the Royal party jit Drayton Manor on the 29th instant; so that the Premier will have the distinguished honour of receiving in his house at the same time his Sovereign and her illustrious Consort, and Her Majesty the Queen Dowager, with their respective suites and attendants.—Standard. DUEL.— A hostile meeting took place on the sand near Haverfordwest, 011 Tuesday se'nnight, between Captain ll-y, an officer who very gallantly distinguished himself in the wars in Afghanistan and Scinde, and a Mr. T. J s, in consequence of some language spoken by the latter highly derogatory to the most illustrious personage in the realm, in the presence of the captain, who resented it by a personal attack upon the disloyal subject, and a meeting ensued, in which Mr. J-s was very severely injured, so much so that his life is despaired of. -Standard. THE COAL TRAI)P,Ilrom the Taunton Courier.—The interests in the coal and culm trade of this town are about to undergo a very material alteration, by which the public will be unquestionably benefited; but at the same time, the dealers will be probably (though we sincerely hope not) injured by the operation. A company has been announced whose arrangements are of a very comprehensive and absorb- ing nature, by which the supply of coals and culm throughout the line westward of the Bristol and Exeter Railway is to be furnished. For this purpose the collieries opposite the Somersetshire coast, on the Welsh coast, will be extensively put into requisition and, by a contract with the railway company, the entire line, from Highbridge, will be provided from convenient depots. To meet the exigency thus imposed, the proprietors of the water carriage—these belonging to the "Bridgwatcr and Taunton Canal"—have resolved on a re- duction of their terms and, from the 1st instant, lowered their tolls from pet- ton per mile, to I icl. This will effect a very considerable saving to the consumer but how far it will enable the proprietors to compete with the newly- announced company is problematical. The Grand Western Canal" company, whose operations are continuous with those of the Bridgwater and Taunton canal, have not as yet re- solved on any reduction of their tolls,—a measure which, perhaps, will be found indispensable to their interests, under the threatening aspects of the new competition. Already the prices of coal and culm are considerably lower than they have been for many years, so that the housekeepers in general, and especially the poorer part of the community, will, un- questionably. derive much benefit from the working of the I new interests, however lamentably they may clash with those involved in pre-existing establishments. It may be in this, as in numberless other instances of daily occurrence, that the railway enterprise, while it well lines the pockets of some, turns those of others "insideout." MUNIFICENT CHARITAISLE BEQUESTS.—We are informed that, by an order of ,the Court of Chancery, the undermen- tioned legacies, bequeathed by the late Miss Ann Dimsdale, of Frenchay, near Bristol (one of the Society of Friends), are paid, or in the course of paymont, by the executors, viz. To the poor of the parish of Mangotsfield 500 British and Foreign Bible Society 1000 Moravian Missionary Society 1000 '3' Bristol Infirmary 500 Bristol Strangers' Friend Society. 500 Bl-tt)l Ito, fu,,e SO(!iC",Y 500 Bristol Lying-in Society 500 Bristol Guardian Society or House 500 Bristol Misericordia Society 500 v Bristol Dorcas Society 500 Prison Discipline Society. 500 :f:ö;j()O I We also understand that after the decease of certain annui- tants, a further sum of about 1:20,000 will be divisible among the ten above-named charitable institutions,

At an agricultural meeting the other day, the Duke of Cleveland said, within three miles of the place^vhere he had resided for the la<t nine years was a place which had long been rented as a rabbit, warren a spirited farmer acquainted with it applied to Sir William Wclby, and said, if he could have a lease for 14 years, that. he would break it up, and bring the land into cultivation, his rent being allowed to remain at the same amount as that paid by the warrencr. This offer was accepted and the farmer being satisfied that the undertaking would ultimately repay him entered with spirit upon it. III the fourth or fifth year after the warren was broken up he (the Duke of Cleveland) saw this farm, and he could testify that it was bearing the best crops in the county and last year, in the month of July, he again saw it, and would not wish to behold finer crops of wheat, barley, and oats, than those which he witnessed growing upon this very farm. (Applause.) This showed what could be done bv a spirited farmer. At the end of four or five years after he'entered on the cultivation of this farm, the tenant applied to his landlord to erect suitable buildings upon it. Sir W. AVelby observed, that the rental was so small that he could not he expected to incur an outlay of that description. This farmer, however, so far from having the necessary confidence ,even in a lease of 14 years, to induce him to erect the necessary buildings, offered terms to his landlord. Like a sensible man, he would not place implicit reliance in the -mutual confidence principle, but preferred having an agreement in black and white, under signature and seal. ttui s I He made an offer that, if his landlord would extend his lease from 14 to 21 years, he would build himself a complete range of buildings. This was agreed upon, and a better and more perfect set of buildings could not be seen than he had erected. Now, the tenant would 110 doubt be amply repaid for his outlay the landlord, although he would have to wait so many years before he took any advantage from the improvement, would ultimately find his farm trebled or quadrupled in valtie.-Chester Chronicle. DR. WOLFF.—Accounts have been received from Dr. Wolff, dated Malta, 26th of October, on which day he sailed for Constantinople. The doctor wr'tes in great spirits, and expresses his gratitude for the kind reception he has nut with from his old and new friends in that island. NATIONAL DEilL-The National Debt at this time amounts to about E7 10,000,000. It is owing to about a million and a half of persons, holders of government securities for money in the funds.
