KING'S COLLEGE-CIVIL ENGINEERING.
KING'S COLLEGE-CIVIL ENGINEERING. On Monday week, a new and very important class of manufacturing art and machinery," was opened to the students of this institution by Mr Edward Cowper. It belongs to the department of civil en- gineering and science applied to the arts and manu- factures, and arose from an acknowledgment of the want of a system of education suitable to young men intended for the profession of civil engineers. The subject having for a considerable time occu- pied the attention of the council, they arranged in the year 1838 a plan, which was then presented to the public, with the view of giving a scientific educa- tion to those who professionally or otherwise desired to obtain it. These views of the council having been fully justified by the success which has attended the measure, they decided upon incorporating with it a course of instruction, having a special reference to the arts and manufactures of the country, and with this view appointed Mr Cowper the lecturer on manufacturing art and machinery. The objects of the lectures and instructions in this section are to familiarise the student with the machinery and con- trivance in actual use, thus adding a knowledge of practice to the knowledge of theory taught by the professors. To effect these, machines wilt not only be described in general terms, but their various de- tails, and the design of each particularconsfuction, will be explained and illustrated by drawings or models. The observation, judgment, and invention of the students will be exercised by experiments made by themselves, and by visits to various manu- factories and other works, to which access has been liberally granted by the proprietors, and directors, and where they will be accompanied by the lecturer, who will glfe explanations on the spot. ROMAN CATHOLIC CHAPEL AT WINDSOR.-—It seems that the handful of Romanists in this neigh- bourhood, encouraged by the late visits of noble lords and foreign dukes, and their ladies, have deterniine4 to be satisfied no longer with the present quiet cha. pel at Clewer Green, supported chiefly by the mu- nificence of Mr. Riley, of Forest Hill, but are about to erect a chapel of more commaiidit, gex(erioil rather nearer to the town and castle of Windsor, for the convenience of such as may now, or at any future time, be disposed to leave the old ways of their fathers, and enter upon the mysteries of Romanism. We understand that a site has been selected, and that the work is likely to be commenced forthwith, liVMdfor anduton Journal,
THE CHURCH. NEW CHURCHES,—Within the Inst few days three new churches have been consecrated, all within two miles of Manchester:—The church of St. John, at Broughton, for which the inhabitants of that place are chiefly Indebted to the benevolence of John Clowes, Esq., of Broughton Hall, was consecrated by his Grace the Bishop of Chester:—a beautiful new church at Cheethain, called St. Luke's:-and at Openshaw, about two miles east of Manchester, the church of St. Barnabas. Each of these churches will contain from 1200 to 1500 persons. The Lord Bishop of Chester has also very recently consecrated anew church at Stalybridge; and another at St Helen's, built at the sole expense (910,000) of Mr P. Greenall. THE FOUNDATION STONE of one of the Bir- mingham ten churches," was laid last week; and another will be comtnenced in a few weeks. THE DEAN and Chapter of Westminster have giveu an allotment of ground and .£300, and the Dean of St. Asaph, £200, towards buildiug the North Hill District Church at Great Malvern.— Worcester Journal. Miss HICKMAN, of Newnham Nell, has given the site for the new church at Daventry, and JE200, towards its erection.- ivorthampton Herald. WINDSOR NEW CHURCH.—Active measures are in progress for the erection of a new church in the lower part of Windsor. The plan is intended to includc accommodation for the regiments who have hitherto been unable to attend Divine Service in any con- secrated place of worship. A book has been opened at the Windsor Bank, to receive the names of sub- scribers; and donations to the amount of- £ 800 have already been announced. The committee of the Church Union Society hate agreed to recommend a grant off 50, to be made from the general fund of the society itt, fariti-eratice of this plan.-Windsor Journal. OPENING OF ST. MICHAEL'S CHURCH, BLACK- BURN.—The ceremony of opening this building for Divine Worship according to the form of the Esfa- blishment, and by a regularly ordained minister, took place last Sunday week. The minister ap- pointed to the superintendence of this church and district is the Rev. Annesley Paul Hughes, and we understand that the Pastoral Aid Society has granted £100 ayear towards his slipend,-Blackbu.rn Stand- ard. CONSECRATION.—On Tuesday week the new church at Bradshaw was consecrated by the Lord Bishop of Ripon. BRINSLEY CtIAVEL.-This elegant structure was consecrated on Tuesday week, by the Bishop of the diocese, as a Chapel-of-ease to the populous parish of Greasley, of which, though remote in distance, Biinsley forms a thickly populated hamlet. The chapel contains sittings for 500 persons, including a very large proportion of free seats; and attached to it is a burial ground, given by the Duke of New. castle. ROTHERHITHE^—In addition to the land on which two new churches and one of the national schools at Rotherhithe have lately been built, which land was presented to the parish by Major.General Sir Wil, liam Gomm, the churchwardens have received within the last few days from Sir William and his lady the gift of a handsome service of communion plate for the use of one of the churches. A COMPLETE SERVICE of plate for the use of the communion has been presented to the Abbey Church, Shrewsbury, by the Rev. Kichard Scott, B.D. It is of au elegant design, and cost Z72. DRATH.—A few days since, the Rev. Doctor Prosser, one of the Prebendories of Durham Cathe- dral, at his meet, Belmont, Herefordshire, in his 94th year. By this event the stall held by him will de- volve on the Rev. Henry Jenkyns, Professor of Greek in the Dnrham University, under the arrange- ments for founding that Institution. Dr. Prosser was a man of immense wealth, which, it is believed, will descend to his great nephew, the son of the tate Rev. Dr. Haggitt, Prebendary of Durham. TESTIMONIAL OF RESPEC?.—The inhabitants of the parish of Brodsworth lately presented to the Rev, C. R. Flint a richly chased and elegant silver tea-pot, on the octasjon of bisdeparture from amongst them to the living of Bilsthorpe, to which he has been lately indneted by the Eacl of Scarborough. The inhabitants of Loversall also, where the rev. gentleman'srmihlstrations have been exercised, pre- sented a richly chased and elegant silver sugar- basin to correøpyd with the tea-pot.-Doneaster Chronicle. AN ELEGANT SILVER INKSTAND has recently been presented to the Rev Colin Campbell, M.A. from his friends at Newport, Salop. The inkstand is from an entirely new design, the, borders, feet, and handles being formed of handsome and massive scrolls; the glass cases are richly cut, alternate dead and bright, ■od in the centre is placed a finely modelled figure of fteligion, holding in her hand a bright silver scroll, upon which is engraved the following imorip,lon :Prescnted, together with a full set of silk robes, to the Rev Colin Campbell,' M.A. by one hundred and rotir of his friends at Newport, Salop, as a token of gratitude, esteem, and regret upon his reiigning the Lectureship of that parish, June, 18S9." THB REV. WILLIAM HOULBHOOK.-—The friends of this gentleman, who, to the sincere regret of his flock, is about to leave the scene of his ministra- tions in Bradford, have presented him with a coffee and tea service of silver, of the value of fifty guineas. It is stated that the Bishop of Chichester will present the living of Cowfold, just become vacant by the death of Mr Constable, to his Lordship's own son, the Rev. Mr Otter.-Brighton Guardian. In the subscription for extending the operations of the British and Foreign School Society, we ob- serve, with much gratification, the name of her Majesty connected with the donation of £100 for the special purpose of aiding tn the formation of a normal schoo', and also with the munificent sub. scription of £ 100 per annum.Sforning Chronicle. THE OXFOftD UNJVERSITY.Michaelmas Term commenced on Thursday, the 10th, when a congre- gation for granting degrees, &c., WB8 held. Several of the colleges meet on the first Saturday after term begins; others a week or more afterwards, accord- ing to their several arrangements. RADICALISM IN THE CHURCH !-The Lord Bishop of Exeter held a visitation at Honiton, a few days since. In that neighbourhood resides the Kev. Mr Head. who has mode himself notorious by his op- position to the espiscopal authority of his Diocesan. After the Bishop's charge, the recreant Incumbent, who eats the Church's bread, and lifts tip his heel against her," created a great sensation in the church by attempllng to "duress the Bishop, and failing to do so he afterwards printed and circulated a violent tirade against his Lordship and his reverend brethren. THE LORD BIBH°P OF I'XETER, within the last two months, b«> held 15 visitations, and 30 con- firmations. THE BISHOP OF NEWFOUNDLAND.—The Right Rev. Dr Aubrey Spencer, the newly created Bishop of Newfoundland, sailed for his diocese on the 1st instant, in the Toronto liue of packet milip, via New York. To those who have the interests of the Church of Iftigland at heart, it will be gratifying to know that in going out to his extensive and important dio- cese, the right rev. prelate has had his hands considerably strengthened by the Societies for the Propagation of tlie Gospel aud for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge in Foreign Parts; audit will interest the public to know that their generous feeling has added the sum of ZSOO per annum towards the revenue of the new bishopric, increased the number of missionaries, providing eloi) for the outfit of each, and raised their stipend from X.150 to X200 per annum. With these auxiliaries, and the aid of the powerful eloquence, high example, and Christian devotion to his duties of the gifted and ex- cellent bishop, we trust it will lIolbe long before the differences which have existed in Newfoundland may be happily reconciled.-Liverpogl Standard. CHURCHWARDENS.—The author of a work called Secession Justified," among a vast number of other charges, endeavours to fasten the sin of Persecution on the English Church and in proof of this, in modern times, alludes to the cases of fild two Dis- senting Churchwardens, who were committed to prison for the non-performance of their duties. The very allusion to thesecases shows that the writer is actuated by a spirit of animosity towards the church. What has the Church of England to do with the business? The men were committed to prison by the Civil Power, not by the Ecclesiastical; and their offence was an offence against the laws of the land. What are the facts of the case? Two Dissenters, conscientious and honest Dissenters seek the office of churchwardens, for it would not nor could it, have been imposed against their inclinations: and they seek it for the purpose of annoying the clergymen and injuring the church. 111 undertaking the office, they solemnly engaged to perform duties which they did not perform, and never meant to perform. Now the law, as a matter of course, enforces performance of the duties of the office; and under thette circum- stances, the clergyman had no alternative but to in- sist on the performance of tbe duties. They refused what they had solemnly engaged, and thereby incurred the penalty inflicted, not by the Church, but br the State,-CI,urch of En.-land. Quarterl Be! view,

CHIT CHA T. THE TRINITARIAN BiBLE SOCIETY has published an energetic appeal to England, to adopt vigorous measures to circulate the Scriptures throughout Catholic Europe, pressing the emergency of the times, the opening now offered, and the compara- tively small sacrifice it would require to effect it. ONE of the chief causes of Sir George Murray's near approach to Complete success at Manchester, was his manly and candid avowal of dissatisfaction with certain clauses of the poor law amendment aot. We shall be proud to see at the next general ejection this test of fitness applied to a candidate, whether whig, tory, cr radical. IMPORTANCE OF THE CHINA TRADE.—It was stated, in the course of the interview which the Liverpool deputation had with Lord Palmerston, on Friday last, that one of the deputation had ex- ported more cotton goods to Canton in one year than the East India Company had exported, in the same period, during their monopoly of the trade. THE WATCHMAN, which is the acknowledged or- gan of the Wesleyans, has entered upon the useful course of warning its readers energetically upon the danger arising from the increase of popery. We trust it will soon be found that this active body will be stongly ranged under the banners of the Protes- tant Associations as it was in the lists against the Government latitudinariatiism. GKEAT ALTITUDE.—There is a singer at present in Kentucky who goes so high in alt, that when he gives a concert the audience have to ascend a neigh- bouring mountain to hear him. I:> AN UNTIMELY DEMAND A provincal actress was performing the part of Lady Anne, in King Richard the Third, and on delivering" the following passage, "When shall I have rest?" she was answered by her washerwoman from the pit, Never till you pay n»^'3s. 2d. "I EXTRAORDINARY SHEEP.—There is now in the possession of John Brown, Esq., Robertson Street, Glasgow, at his stables, asheep of the Cheviot breed, weighing 20 stone as it stands alive! "DEAR AT ANY PllICE. Let the toast be dear woman," as the man said when he kicked an extravagant wife into the fire. SWAN RIVER FLEA!I.-The Australian fleas are half as large as a barleycorn and in the Swan River region, the plan of getting rid of these pests is to carry the bed and bedding and spread them near an ant-hill, the denizens of which will sieze the sleeping fleas and carry them off- -Reconnoitering Travels in South A usirtilitt, CHARTIST MORTALITY.—The Western Times, a very exquisite Exeter Whig Journal, says — •' The Chartists of Exeter, who were never very numerous, have ceased to exist." Poor fellows! What is to become of their wives and families? VERY SHORT.—There is a fellow in Arkansas; who is so short that he has been often mistaken for pie-crust. ARABIAN Muslc.-Abdel Kader, according to a letter from Algiers, is organising a corps de musique for his troops, and has got the leader of a French mi- litary band to aid him in the undertaking. THE PENNY POSTAGE.—It is a current report at the Post office, that stamped labels saturated with gum, and to be affixed on the direction side of the let- ter, will be the means used for carrying the New Penny Postage Act nitb operation. Mr. Rowland Hill is to have, it is said, as superintendent of its working, a salary or 1500 £ per annum. POWER OF STIEAM.-The greatest load lifted by any engine now at work in this country was by one in the consolidated mines, which raised a load of 9,000lbs. every double stroke it made, and did this nine times a minute, amounting to 567,022 tons, lifted 7ft. 6 in. in twenty-four hours; and this astonishing machine could be started, stopped, or regulated, by a little boy.—Mechanics Magazine. LABOUR-SAVING SOAP. The following is a recipe for makitisr the labour-saving soap (-o called) which is an excellent article for washing and saving of labour. The receipts for making it have been sold for from 5 to 10 dollars, and the soap seven cents, per lb. but it can be manufactured for about two cents. Take two poundsof salsodi, two pounds of yeilow bar soap, and two quarts of water cut the soap in thin slices, and boil all together for two hours, then strain it through a cloth, let it cool, and it is fit for use. Directions for using the soap Put the clothes in so.»k the night before you wash, and to every pail of water in which you boil them add one pound of soap. They will need no rubbing; merely rinse them out, and they will be perfectly clean and white.—New York Paper. THE CORN LAWS.—THE Two FROGS.—There was once living in a certain country in the North, a fine jolly hospitable old frog, who made much of his neighbours, and treated all the world as his friends. Now this old fellow resided in a well, not one of the best, nor was the water therein so good as the water in an adjoining well belonging his neighbour. This neighbour therefore strongly ad- vised him to fill up his own well, and rely on his friendship and assistance, declaring that his well was at his service. The old frog then assembled his Parliament on the occasion. The oldest and wisest of the council readily admitted that the well was a grellt deal of trouble and expense, but, said they, it is your own, you have easy access to it, your neigh- bour certainly promises very fair, but a bird in the hand is worth three in the bush. Upon which a young and inexperienced frog got up. The question before you, gentlemen, says lie, lies in a nut shell. Had you rather have what is cheap than what is dear? The meeting was astounded at his arguments, they aeemcd so conclusive. They therefore blocked up the well forthwith, and the whole nation set off to their neighbour's land, to claim his protection. When, however, the false frog saw them, he denied them access to his premises, and, being starved to death, they all perished."—MORAL-—If we throw our own corn tand out of culture, and rely on foreign protection, we may expect tbrealize the fate of our frog Leeds Intelligencer. f: THE S LNIPLO- Extract of a letter from Genoa, Sept. 19: We left this last Monday with the in- tention of passing the Simplon road into Italy, and had proceeded 200 miles on our way when, with great mortification, we learned that, during a recent storm, an avalanche had fallen and so completely destroyed full half a nllle of this beautiful road that for several weeks it will hardly be passable for car- riages. We had no choice, therelore, but to return here, and proceed by Mont Cenis and Turin. This is a sad loss of time and money to us but we must be thankful to have escaped all other inconveniences, since many of the English who were pursuing the same route, found all the inns full, and some were obliged to sleep in their carriages. One Prussian family had a narrow escape while passing the Sim- plon during the storm for, having left their carriage to walk on, their servant saw the torrent falling, and took the horses from the vehicle, when immediately the avalanche overwhelmed the latter and left not a wreck behind."
WHO WOULD BE AN EDITOR?
WHO WOULD BE AN EDITOR? Can anything, dead or alive, more pitiably unhappy be conceived than a jaded scribbler for the public press—sitting down to his task at the last moment, with an aching head and an empty stomach-or vice versa, which is exactly the, same in effect? Imagine the forlorn drudge's sensation, as he doggedly lifts the quill-stump and moves it instinctively towards the fountain of good and evil, the ink-pot, surcharged with both the gall of bitterness and the honey of adu- lation. He is destitute of a topic-his over-wrought brain has exhausted its stock of images, and he can fancy nothing but the ghost of an idea, already hack- neyed through all the changes of the alphabet-no subject that has not been hacknied to death by the hungry scissors of borrowers and imitators. Yet must lie not continue to feed the iron jaws of the press! There is no release from the undertaking. lie is in for it; and, sterile and fertile, feasting or starving, his imagination must be wrung daily, yea hourly, for the wherewithal to meet the merciless de- mand of this demon at his elbow. Other men may eat, drink, and sleep; may live, move, and have a being like decent creatures the merchant may relax in time of sickness, or retire at seasons of enjoyment; the mechanic may forego a job when he breaks a limb, or chooses to go a fishing the farmer may work or let it alone and the mariner has frequent intermissions amidst the toils and the storms of his career, and the world wags on without confusion nevertheless they only comparatively feel the consequences. Not so with the slave of types. For him there is no holiday. No repose, no retreat, await his tried powers. When he sulks, the world comes to an end, and chaos riots Nor is it merely indispensible that he should labour at brief and stated intervals-the most irksome sort of employment from it's very constancy and regularity, and unceasing recurrence; he must 414so put forth his efforts at something new. The reading public has become a spoiled child, with a depraved appetite, perpetually hankering atter novelties, monstrosities, and impossibilities. In the fabrication of these cru- dities for quidnuncs a renewel of intellect one a year, at least, should beprovided for. There is an end even to the spider's most attenuated thread;" and what maker of long yarns can be required in reason, not only to spin out, like a spider, the substance of his body, but that of his brain also ? Truly this is a cruel world; and the man that meddles with paragraphs is a-miserable-pieceB of carn eoua machinery.-Buck- ingham*
LONDON MARKETS. CORN EXCHANGE, Monday, Oct. 14.—-We are mo- derately supplied with Engl'sh Wheat this morning, fine samples continue to command the prices of this day week, but damp and inferior are a shade cheaper. Barley is Is lower, unless for fine malting. White Peas are 2t. dearer. Oats are a slow sale. Hog Peas and new Beans are in good demand, but old Beans are Is. to 2s. cheaper. In other Grain or Flour no alteration. IVoOr. -We have no alteration to notice in the English Wool Market. Manufacturers buy spai-jilgi N, at previous rates, while Farmers hold firmly. In Foreign Wool there is not much business doing. Some large public sales of Colonial are advertized to commence Oil the 17th inst. HOPS—Since our last the supply of new Pockets has been great. Weald of Kent, and Sussex, with colour, have gone off freely. The better sorts of Kent I lops continue in request, and fully support their currency. Inferior sample* are quite neglected although offered at reduced prlce. SIXPENNY VOYAGES IN run Alit.-If a balloon, capable ot taking up a hundred persons at once, were harnessed to the earth by a rope or chain of a quarter ot a mile long, no doubt can reasonably he entertained that thousands would go np daily. We have con- sulted Air Green on the subject, and have fully con vinced that enterprising ceronaut of the practicability of the thing. By firmly screwing a heavy crane to the top of Primrose Hill, round the barrel of which the required length of rope was twined, a balloon might gradually be let into the air at the rate of speed little exceeding that ofthe pile-driving monkey. This very deliberate ascent would produce a sensation altogether new and delightful.. Primrose Hill would be crammed with persons anxious to have a ride in the atmospheric omnibus, and, large -sums of money would be taken daily, when it once becomes generally known that individuals might be craned into the air five times as high as St. Paul's, and then craned down again, with perfect security, and all for sixp«nce Some people may laugh at this project, and think we are jesting. No such thing. We havelong entertained an opinion that the speculation would be extremely profitable. Indeed, we have every reason to expect that the pro- prietors of Vauxhall will carry it into effect before long, unless some enterprising company-monger shall meanwhilestep in,and make it the basis of future opera- tions for the Stock Exchange.—Polytechnic Journal [This is not so novel a suggestion as the author ap- pears to imagine. We remember some fifteen years since to have seen the unfortunate Sadler practising this very tbing. His balloon was held down by some men with ropea; and parties were allowed to ascend to a certain distance for a trifling fee; until at last one poor man's leg got entangled, and he was drawn «p into the air, to the great danger of life and limb. Alter a couple of hours' sport in this way,the aeronaut cut the ropes, and made a magnificent ascent.— ED. G. & G.] It is understood that the Bank Directors have re- fused to rescind or modify their recent order, by which all bills drawn by or bearing the endorsement of such bairks, whether public or private, as issue their own notes, are excluded from discount by the Bank of England. This is the practice to be ad- hered to in future--Tiynes.

This day accept a Poet's humble meed, We know the Noble by his Noble Deed; The page of Fame all other things dismiss, Behold. and wonder-only look at this! 'Tis Him who moves the elements to war, Who rides the whirlwind in his flaming car, Ten thousand worlds hang at his finger's end.- Tis Him who found the Seaman's Noble Friend. Who could foretell in Cardiff's ancient town That BUTF. would bring such golden showers down That we should see Commerce and all her train, With a thousand hammers on the lonely plain; Who has created, with a mighty hand, A sheet of water on the burning sand In yon bright region of the warbling lark, The banners flutter on the stately bark, Glamorgan's Sons with joy may henceforth boast, A place of safety on their rugged coast; Heartrending news we'll hear of no more, The shipwreck'd Seaman perished on its shore: No search in grief for dear departed jov, Nor a widow'd Mother for her orphan Boy; The Western Gale-the harbinger of death, Henceforth will be a soft Commercial breath Instead of plunging on the brink of bell, Thou roaring Neptune-a serene Farewell! We'll tremble not at thy tremendous shocks, Those gates are based upon eternal rocks j A Port of Refuge to a worn-out Tar, His safe retreat-long wish'd for from afar, He'H look from hence, ;Lnitsmile, in spite of fate, Though snow capt billows thunderat the gate. Old father time through Noble Bute's command, To change the plain, hath stretched forth his wand; The fields are gone-tbe marshes are no more, Streets, through commerce, have reached the sea shore, As if an earthquake here rent the land. The sea's encircled with a granite band; And all the nations of the mighty globe. There congregate their beauty to enrobe What arm could build this splendid far fam'd port ? The merchant's pearl, the working man's support. The Country's shield and patriotic friend, The Oak that bore the tempest to the end Ten thousand blessings from the Great above, To crown his goodness and his Lady Love. And when the Sun approaches to the West,- A lmost at home-when weariness want rest When years roll on. till life is but a span, May they be bless'd,—beyond the power of man In realms above be their eternal lot,- To wear the Crown of Joy that fadelh not. CAWRDAF. r" Behold and wonder,—only look at this!" Gen- tlemen and Ladies, did you ever see, any thing like it before ? We would forgive the prosaic expressions, the gross grammatical errors, the departure from all esta- blished rhythmatical rules,—if we could find one poetic thought iu the rhymester's "humble meed." Can it be that the person who signs his name to this production, really claims a niche among the living Welsh PoetJ? Cau it be he who, not twelve months since, assisted at a Gorsedd, dispensing poetic honours to his countrymen ? Hidiculous-We repeat, that we would make every allowance for a man like Cawrdaf, who is but slightly acquainted with the English language,-we would pass over all the barbarisms of the above bombast, which is beneath all criticism, and which many a school boy would be ashamed to own, if we could have found in it the germ of one poetic thought. With this monstrous piece of stuff before them, will the Committee of any Cymreigyddion Society, after the example of Cardiff, ever again venture to name him their literary judge ?]
