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,
