The EVILS OF IDLE-, ESS.iNine-teiiths of the miseries and vices of mankind proceed from idleness with men of quick minds, to whom it is especially pernicious, this habit is commonly the fruit of many disappointments, and schemes oft baffled and men fail in their schemes not so much from the want of strength, as from the ill direction of it, Life of Schiller. y A gentleman who has occasion to walk with two ladies and one umbrella, should always go in the middle-that secures a dry coat to himself, and is shewing no partiality to either of the ladies. A trial has just been made, at the Brussels station, of a system of night telegraphs for railroads, consisting of Bengal lights surrounded by glasses of various colours. It is said to have succeeded. PUT DOWN BY A Pux. A soi-disant naturalist was boring Theodore Hook with the distinctions in formation and habits between two animals of the same genus. Hook, who neither knew nor wished to know anything about it, exclaimed, It flashes on me now, I see the distinction it's just the same in swine." In swine cried the astonished naturalist. "Yes," said Hook; "you know some pigs are driven, and some pigs are lead." The bore gave a grunt and was silent. ADAM'S PALE ALE.—The above celebrated liquid, so strongly recommended by Father Mathew and the faculty of Priessnitz, may be procured in any quantity from the pump in Burlington Gardens, by applying yourself to the handle. Be particular to inquire for the ladle.—Punch. THE CHURCH AND THE BAR.—It is worthy of remark that barristers, in their addresses to the jury, are studiously- distinct in their enunciation. How important it is, then, that clergymen, who have far weigtier matter to communicate to their hearers, should aim at the same distinctness, by speaking deliberately, giving every syllable its proper quan- tity, and avoiding the prevalent error of dropping the voice (sometimes half an octave) at the close of a sentence, whereby its meaning is often lost. The clergy, in large churches especially, seem not to be aware of the inconve- nience and deprivation experienced by their congregations, from non-attention to these particulars and informing them of their failure would be so much like finding fault, that few persons would run the risk of giving offence. PICTURE OF A MARCH IN INDIA.—I can scarcely conceive anything that would excite more astonishment, if it could be exhibited in England, than the multitudes, the variety of costume, &c., attending the'march of a regiment in India. Several hundreds of camels, led by natives in every variety of picturesque Scindian and Hindoostanee garb carts which might be the stridentia plaustra of the classics, drawn by bullocks with heavy yokes, acd impelled by goads the irre- gular cavalry, with dresses in which the gayest colours were brought into the strongest contrast, their long black locks floating in the wind, their animated gestures, loud eties, and quivering spears, now urging their horses forward, now checking them in full career the regular cavalry, with their elegant light blue uniform, and systematic movements, powerfully contrasting with the erratic evolutions and dresses of the in egulars; native and European infantry; officers on horseback, some in furs, some in cloaks, as they might best resist the cold of the morning all this in the midst of a pathless and unfeatured desert, was a wild and animated scene. It is stated, on good authority, that Her Majesty and Prince Albert will visit Warwick Castle In about six weeks, and that the Queen has determined to take advantage of the opportunity of visiting Birmingham. Should this joyous event take place, we are convinced that the demonstration of loyalty and attachment of the people of this borough towards our beloved Sovereign will be of the most gratifying and enthusiastic description. -Birin infjhcttn Advertiser. THE CURRENCY.-The following notice made its ap- pearance on Friday The Governor and Company of the Bank of England do hereby give notice, that on and after the 2nd of January next, they will receive gold coin below the legal current weight, in amounts of not less than 51., at the rate of 3/. 17s. 63d. per ounce and further, that at the respective branches of the Bank of England, it will be re- ceived, in like amounts, at the rate of 31. lïs. 5d. per ounce, being, after deducting the charges of transmission to London, equal to tha above price of f3. 17s. 6ld. per ounce. Bank of England, Dec. 14th, 1843." The contents of Mr. Tyler's next message are the subject of much speculation in the American Papers, and great im- portance is attached to the position which it is expected he will take with regard to Texas. The notion that Great Britain will do all that it can to abolish slavery in that country, increases into a belief that some indirect movement against the Southern States of the Union is contemplated. The President, say the journalists, will take very" strong-, broad, comprehensive" ground, setting his face against all (,' attempts of the English Government to interfere with the linkm by intriguing or any projects of colonization. Sir Charles Napier, the gallant hero of Scinde, is on the t of returning to this country, on leave of absence arising from indisposition. Mr. Maeready concluded a very successful engagement at the National Theatre, New York, on Wednesday evening, the 29th ult. The prices of admission were doubled, and the house WU generally well tilled. REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO REVISE THE SEVERAL RATES, FOH, THE PURPOSE OF MAKING A GENERAL COUNTY RATE FOR GLAMORGANSHIRE. To tlte jíaJisfrrtles in Quarter Sessions assembled,— 'i he committeebeg to report that, availing themselves of the information already collected, and of the valuable notes and reports left by IMr. Bichcno, and also of the important assistance of the deputy clerk of the peace, they have, frum time to time, held adjourned sesions in those p;:its of the county whoie they fuuml it desirable to obtain evidence 011 the spot. They also submitted a se; ies of questions oil tlie law of rating to several experienced counsel, and have bi en guided by their opinions, and by tho decisions of the courts of law in fiaming the rate. Every parish has separately received their attention and whilst those purely agricultural demand no further observa- tion than liiat the groas annual letting value has been in ail cases, as far as possible, obtained, and used as the standard, it will be necessary for your committee to enter more at length into the circumstances affecting those parishes in which a manufacturing population has been collected. With regard to works, both iron, copper, tin, &e., your committee have employed some experienced surveyors, and have also had access to the surveys on which several of the parishes have rated themselves, and they believe that these works are in a fair proportion to one another, and to other property in the county. Coal has been charged at different rates of galeage, and in this the committee have been guided by the quality and the distance from a market. Canals and tram-roads have been rated acconling to the net income which they appear to produce, and railroads, worked by locomotive engines, according to the decision of The Queen V. South Western Railway." Docks, market tolls, arising from visible property, wharfs, keelage dues, and gas-houses, have also been rated on the principles laid down by the decisions of the Court of Queen's Bench. Light-houses, which have hitherto not been rated, will produce but a small addition, as the major part of the tolls are not collected in the parishes in which thsy are situate. A scale of allowances, graduated according to the nature of the property, has been acted upon throughout the county. Premises which have been for some time vacant, or which appear likely to remain so permanently, have been omitted. Your committee would recommend, that should the rate they submit be adopted, or as soon as a rate is finally agreed upon, it should, together with the evidence taken, be entered in full into a book, and preserved as a county record. They further recommend that the finance committee should be instructed once a year in future to report to the general quarter sessions, whether they deem any portion of the county rate requires amending, and they are induced to do this from the daily development which property is receiv- inir in this county, to which their attention has been strongly called in the course of this investigation. Your committee have only further to observe, that they regret having been obliged, after long forbearance, to put several parishes to the expense of a sliney; but they felt that by delaying any longer they would be doing an act of injustice to the county at large, and neglecting the duty entrusted to them.
