AMERICA. PHILADELPHIA, OCT. ¡;Mr P. Thomson has ar- rived at Quebec. There is no denying the fact, that the change^is not popular at present. Mr Thomson is believed to cherish anti-Canadian politics in a com- mercial sense, while the loss of Sir John Colborne's military services is deeply regretted. Already the habitants have nicknamed the new governor poulet (the fowl), and the British residents do not like him —as a majority. Mr Mackenzie has been shot at while looking through the bars of his prison, and missed. The assassin is unknown. General (?) Van Renssalaer, of Navy Island notoriety, has been tried and convicted at Albany, of setting on foot a military expedition in the United States agaiust a foreign power. He is sentenced to six months' imprison- ment, and a fine of 250 dollars. New York papers to the 29th ult., have been re- ceived. They announce the death of General Jackson. The New York bankers have determined to main- tain cash payments, but at the opposite extremity of the Union all the New Orleans banks have closed.
IRELAND. "FOUR WHITEBOYS SENTENCED TO TRANSPORTA- TION FOR LIFE, BY JUDGE CRAAIPTON, AT SLIGO ASSIZES, RELEASED ON GIVING IN BAlI. BY THE IRIAH GOVERNMENT. At the last Sligo assizes, five brothers of the name of Loftus, were tried under the Whiteboy Act, for breaking into several dwelling houses. Four were found guilty by a mixed jury composed of Protestants and Roman Catholics, and one acquitted. Judge Crampton in passing sentence addressed the prisoners in the following words: 'i-ou, William, John, Patrick, and Timothy Loftus, have been found guilty of a malicious assault on several dwelling houses, and of administering unlawful oaths to the inmates. It appears that at the dead hour of the night, when John M'Nulty, and his wife were reposing in bed, that you with your faces blackened, all but one, and straw round some ot your heads as a disguise, broke into the house of Thomas M'Nulty, beat him, dragged him along the floor, and afterwards, to secure your personal safety, made him swear an un- lawful oath that he would not give any information against you. You went then to the houses of John and Thomas M'Niff and acted in the same outrageous manner. For so doing the jury have found you guilty on the most satisfactory evidence, and I must add, it is a verdict in which I fully concur. You have all trampled on and insulted the laws ofthe land, because of some dispute or quarrel you had about grotrhd with the prosecutors, and instead of appealing to the con- stituted authorities, and entering the courts of law it you were wronged, for relief, which are open to all parties, for the protection of the poor, and also for the protection of the rich, you instead thereof have made a law for yourselves, a treacherous, cruel, and brutal law, and you have punished according to your own feelings ot personal vengeance. Were such actions to he tolerated there would be no safety for either life or property in any rank or condition of society, but above all, the cabin of the poor man, who should be the especial subject of legal protection, would be exposed to outrage and violence, and therefore for such crimes as you have been guilty of, the law provides an extreme punishment, and I trust it will have its due effect in deterring others from such con- duct. The sentence of the Court is that you be transported for life.' In accordance with the sentence thus pronounced the prisoners were sent forward from Sligo, and immediately after an order came from the Lords Justices to release them on giving in bail. We have attentively read over the evidence, which appeared in this journal of the 12th of July last, and we do not see how the jury could have brought in a different verdict We are anxious therefore to learn whether the matter has been submitted to Judge Crampton, who in the above address expressed his concurrence in the verdict of the jury, and said the prisoners were found guilty on the most satisfactory evidence. Perhaps some new information has been obtained; but at present the proceeding bears a most extraordinary aspect, and fully equals in appearance any one of the antics of Lord Normanby. We un- derstand that it was on a memorial forwarded by Mr Jones, of Banada, that the pardon of the prisoners was granted. We have only space this day to take this cursory notice of the matter, but shall not fail to re- turn to it "-Sligo Journal.
TO CORRESPONDENTS. ON A CONSTANT READER'S lines to a friend contain some very indifferent rhymes,—if, indeed, form and morn, supreme and lean, can be called rhymes at all. A CHURCHMAN."—We received on Thursday night, through the Merthyr Post Office, a letter signed A Churchman." We must decline giving it insertion, for reasons which we should have been glad to have stated privately, had the writer given us his name in confidence. We, however, take this means of assuring our unknown correspondent that we fully coincide in all the censure he has uttered nor are we led to the witholding of his letter from the public by any private considerations; for having ourselves exposed some of the lamentable faults on former occasions,we should scarcely increase either the bitterness or the number of a certain coterie of personal enemies, by its publication; even if we viewed that of more importance than the promul- gation of truth. We wish to see the evils "A CHUKCHMAN" complains of effectually remedied; and we hope the time is not far distant when our best hopes will be realized. The Llandovery Agricultural Report, Master Hughes's Concert,—and several other communi- cations reached us too late for insertion this week. The alterations in Messrs. Hyams's advertisement shall be attended to next week.
MERTHYR TYDVIL. AND BRECON,
MERTHYR TYDVIL. AND BRECON, Nov. 23, 1539. The appointment of FROST as a Magistrate is so disgraceful to the Government, that even their own friends do not defend it they merely attempt to shift the blame upon anybody's shoulders who is better able to bear the load they say that as he was recommended by the Town Council, and that recommendation was backed by the Lord Lieutenant of the County, it was Lord JOliN RUSSELL'S bounden duly to appoint him that the Home Secretary is, in fact, merely the Clerk of the Returns, and is to Ct register the edicts" of Radical Councillloards and of Wi.i,Radiciii Lieutenants. It so hap- 11 pens that the very same Secretary, not only ap- pointed Magistrates in the very teeth of the recommendations of Lords-Lientenants, but dis- missed the Lords-Lieutenants themselves,if they proved refractory and happened to be Tories; but without dwelling upon the flimsy effrontery of this truly Whig argument, let us see for a moment what conclusions are to be drawn from the facts. Frost, at the time of his appointment, was well known to every Town Councillor of Newport, to the Lord-Lieutenant of Monmouth- shire, and to Lord John Russell, as a convicted libeller, a fraudulent insolvent, and an open ad- vocate of a division of property, (TVerndee to wit) and knowing all this, the Town Council elect him, the Lord-Lieutenant recommends him, and the Secretary of State appoints him. Of course;" say the Whigs, he was bound to do so!" Is any comment necessary? Does not the transaction stamp with indelible disgrace every person concerncd ? We challenge a reply from any Whig in the kingdom. What a happy example of the practical working of the liberal system! What a worthy and enlighted Mu- nicipal Corporation! What a discriminating and impartial Lieutenant f What a statesmanlike Home Secretary! How much better is Mon- mouthshire managed, how much more carefully are her Magistrates selected, how much more attentive is the Home Office to representations from a proper quarter" than in the old corrupt days of Beauforts and of Cästlereaghs e heartily congratulate every man in Monmouth- shire, who has anything to lose, on the blessings of Reform. However, the Whigs having made him a Magistrate, will now, we take it for granted, at least have the courage to make him an example—an example to all Chartists, Town Councils, Lieutenants, and Secretaries of State. The bodies of Traitors are no longer quartered but in ruder times, we should have seen one limb over the gates of Pontypool Park, another over Llanover, a third over the door of the Council Room of Newport, and a fourth over the Home Office. Punishments vary, but crimes remain unchancred. nor do we think that the name of Frost, the Traitor," will he heard for many a day without a twinge of con- science in any of the places we have just named. How say you, gentlemen Whigs? Guilty, or Not Guilty ?
CHURCH EXTENSION. SIK,—Had we to deal in this question only with the religious and the pious, we might, [ think, fairly leave it where it is beseeching Him who alone can govern and direct the wills and affections of sinful men, that He would guide us in that path wli'c'i shall most surely lead to His glory and the happiness of men but we have the cold and the worldly- minded poli- tician to be propitiated and to such a one the remarks in your last week's number, as to the kind of preaching to which the unwary among our working men are exposed, may well afford matter for deep consideration. If the facts there stated are true, aiid I am convinced you would not on light grounds give them your countenance, how greatly does it concern us that the teaching now committed, under legal sanctions, to the ignorant and the designing. should be placed in responsible hands. Hitherto we have been content that this most important duty should be exercised almost wholly by those of whose previous qualifications of education or principles we know nothing. Every wild and voluble declaimer has been! at liberty, unques- tioned and unrestrained, to pour forth, under the guise of religious teaching, the full tide of infidelity and sedition. By their fruits ye shall know them." And can it yet be made a question whether or not it is the duty of the state to provide for its humbler children a whole- some aliment? And how better can this be done than by planting all around, not grudgingly or sparingly, men responsible to their ecclesias- tical superiors for the doctrines they inculcate. If our rulers will not afd in doing this, (and we ourselves ought to do somewhat) then must they answer to the ruled for the disorders that must still spring from a rotten and diseased root;— let them look to it. Infidelity, under the name of Socialism, another branch of Hell's dark communion, is closely linked with Chartism; and, to use the words of the Rev. Mr Close, Socialism is rebellion against God, and Char- tism is rebellion against man," To bring this subject to a practical issue, we should call on the Heads of our Apostolic Church to bestir themselves in earnest. Little do they know their own weight, or the amount of their influence among the gentry of the land. Let them essay it,—let them look to what was done by the Bishop of London. How much did he raise for the dark places of his Diocese and why should not the venerable man who fills the See of Llandaff be as successful in his sphere of action ? We want many Churches-3D did Birmingham and to meet all pockets they spread their subscriptions over as many years. To me, and others like me, it would be more convenient to put down ten or twenty pounds a year, for ten years, than to pay at once one or two hundred pounds. Resources are not want- ing, and all we need is a strong appeal from those at the head of affairs, to bring those re- sources into action. Let our absentee Rectors be called upon to contribute in purse for ser- vices they do net render in person. Our Mer- chants are princes—princely in fortune—why should they not be the nursing fathers of the Church among tlipir own people? They may depend upon it, ur.less better principles are in- fused into the masses they have been the means of congregating, the tenure of their possessions lot's will be but frail. Our lesser gentry can do much, each in his own sphere; they are deeply interested in evangelizing the iron districts if they will not build Churches and plant Minis- ters, they must provide Jails and salaried Ex- ecutioners. But I must conclude. Let us teach the people that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the true charter and birthright, and then their answer to the factious agitator will be—" We will not meddle with those that are given to change. el I am, Sir, your obedient servant, A LAYMAN.
, THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON.
THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON. (From the Standard of Wednesday Evening.) 0 We have the highest gratification in being able to present, from good AUTHORITY, the fol- lowing account of the real nature of the Duke of Wellington's late indisposition. Our readers will see that it removes ail grounds for appre- hension, that a man so justly endeared to the nation, and so important to its highest interests, shall be lost to it, or even disabled from contri- buting his services as constantly and vigorously as he has been accustomed to render them:- Dover, Nov. 19, 7 p m. "Doubtless by this, all sorts of ill-founded rumours have reached the metropolis, relative to the DUKK OR WELLINGTON'S sudden indispo- sition. You will hear of the 4 AI.AKMING ILL- NESS OF THE DFKT.. ATTACK OF APOPLEXY, &c. &c. Believe in nothing of the sort. The facts are simply these. The day before yester- day the Duke took it into his head to starve a slight cold,'and tasted nothing of food the entire of Sunday. Pursuing the same system on Mon day, and finding himself better, he mounted his horse to follow the hounds, and on returning to Waimer Castle after the day's sport, his Grace was so exhausted, that he actually fainted from inanition, from want of food. By medical means he soon rallied- He bathed his feet, and retired to rest; and this morning desired to rise at his usual hour of six; but his medical adviser recommended his Grace to remain longer in bed. He did so, and fell into a sound sleep, and with the blessing of God, his Grace will be, by to-morrow, restored to his usual health. Rumours here had the Duke in IMMINLNT DANGER.' Again, I repeat, believe in nothing of the sort-for in danger he never was." The following paragraphs appeared in the morning papers and produced a most gloomy effect in the metropolis-for where there is much love there will always be much fear. We are happy in the opportunity of removing the public alarm (From the Times.) Our Dover correspondent sent us last night the following melancholy intelligence. In com. mon with every right- minded person in the kingdom, we most cordially hope and pray, that if the information be correct, the attack may be less serious than our informant seems to apprehend :— Dover, Nov. 19. Last evening, about half-past six o'clock, the Duke of Wellington was taken speechless. Dr. M'Arthur was immediately sent for, with Mr Ilalke, the surgeon, who were in attendance as soon as possible, and by reports the Duke remained speechless till six o'clock in the morn. ing but it is said he is something better to- day. His physicians were sent for from London and arrived this afternoon at three o'clock."
RHFORMATtox.-The Marquis, of Normanby has refused to accede to a petition from certain inhabi- tants of Birmingham praying that Lovett and Collins might be removed from the critninal to the debtors' side of the gaol at Warwick. At the Court at Windsor, the 15th day of Novem- ber, 18:59, present, the Qneen's Most hxcellent Ma- jesty in Council, her RIajesty having been pleased to appoint the Right Hon. Hugh Lord Fortescue (com- monly called Viscount Ebrington) to be Lord Lieu. tenant and Custos liotoloruni of the county of Devon, his lordship this day took the oaths appointed to be taken thereupon, instead of the oath of allegiance and supremacy. ARRKST OF DR. TAYLOR,-—On Saturday last Dr. laylor was arrested by two of the Cailisle police at Melberly, near Alston, in Cumberland, and brought to Carlisle the same evening. The chare against the doctor is, havin- delivered a seditious speech in Car- lisle on the ^4th of Augnst last. On Monday he was examined by the magistrates in a room in the gaol, and committed for trial to the next assizes. He was informed that he would be admitted to bail, himself in X200, and two sureties in £100 each,
"LIKE WELSHMEN WE'LL STAND…
"LIKE WELSHMEN WE'LL STAND UP FOR PEACE AND GOOD ORDER." Come, my honest lads all, let us join in a song, For honest lads ever have light hearts and gay; We belong to no Chartists, no traitorous throng, We join with no rebels in murderous fray But we work for the wives and the children we love, We honour the Queen, and we praise God above And though Chartists and traitors come over our border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order. While some at the pot-house are swigging their beer, And bawling about their p,olitical rights,— While some are preparing with pike and with spear To quench the bright flames of true liberty's lights,— We know that kings reign through the great KING of kings, Creator of all men, disposer of things: And though Chartists and traitors are over our border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order. What's the ballot to us, who have nothing to hide ? For 'tis only a bad deed that should not be seen When we all become rogues, and the law we've defied, From the gaze of the world then our misdeeds we'll screen. For an honest poor man, though he's shabbily drest, May hold up his head all along with the best; So though Chartists and traitors come over our border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order. Then away with all politics, squabbles. and rowfI; And, honest men, still keep our hearts light and gay If we listen but once to these bad men, who knows But they '11 lead us to join in some murderous fray ? No! we'll work for the wives and the children we love, We'll honour the Queen, and we'll praise God above; And though Chartists and traitors come over our I border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order.

CITY OF LONDON POLICE-Last week Mr D. IV Harvey, M.P., having received a confirmation of his I appointment from her Majesty's ministers, was sworn into office as a Commissioner of the City of London Police by Mr Barou RIf, at YVestminster, the cap- tion being the first judicial act of the learned judge. Mr Harvey has therefore entered upon the onerous duties of the office, and virtually vacated his seat for the borough of Sotitlnvark, although the vacancy can- not be declared until the meeting of parliament. THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON has appointed Col. Gurwood, Deputy Lieutenant of the Tower, as suc- cessor to the late Major General Sir Francis Doyle. THE DUKE of Wellington, since his appointment to the office of Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, has annually paid to the Treasury, for the public ser- vice, the whole amount of the proceeds of the office. THE WESLEYANS. The loyal and beneficial effects of the Wesleyan instruction amongst the lower orders have been strikingly exemplified by the refusal of the Cornish miners to join their mutinous brethren in Wales. They were often tampered with, but remained firm to their duty. The majority of them, as it is well known, are members of the Wesleyan connection. LORD BROUGHAM has become a subscriber to the Cumberland lee-total Society. We have not beard that his lordship has signed the tee-total pledge.— Carlide Journal. A RETURN made to the House of Commons, on the motion of Mr Eaton, M.P., for Cambridgeshire, of the persons appointed under the Tithe Commutation Act with the (fates of their appointments, amount of salaries, &c., has just been printed. This return con- tains the names of 121 persons who have been en- gaged in working the machinery of that act, at an expense to the country, during a period of less than two years and a half, of £ 4'2,453. His Royal Highness the Duke of SUSSEX has con- sented to act as administrator to the estates of his late brother, the Duke of York. The death of his executors, Sir Herbert Taylor, and Sir Benjamin Stephenson, rendered this step necessary. Her Royal Highness the Princess Sophia is residuary legatee, and although her Royal Highness has always been willing to abandon her claims in favour of the credi- tors, still she has a right, through her illustrious brother, to protect her own interests as well as that of the creditors. A correspondent says some idea may be formed of the unusual activity that has lately prevailed in the Woolwich arsenal from the fact that a greater number of pieces of ordnance, chiefly brass, has been cast within the space of the last four months than during the whole period of the seven years previous to that t Pout. PREACHING IN THE OPES AIR- The Lord Mayor has issued a notice prohibiting public preaching in Smithfield and all other parts of the City, as it has proved only an excuse for disorderly meetings, to the disturbance of the peace. Chartist "sermons," as the Chartists call them, have hitherto been frequent, and generally ended in serious breaches of the peace, to the alariii of the peaceably-disposed inhabitants. Notwithstanding this notice, numbers assembled last Sunday evening, when a party having got into Gilt- spur-street, close to the Compter, they began shouting as if in defiance of the police, some ot whom, however, being in plain clothes, and close to their heels, they were immediately surrounded, and politely handed into the Compter, where the Lord Mayor happened to have just arrived, who, having reprimanded them, and received their promise not to so ottenu again, dis- charged them. GROUND has been taken at Peckham for the pur- pose of erecting a Popish chapel; lhis is evidently done for the purpose, of perversion, as there are not, it is believed more than two Pop'sh families in Peck- ham. DODWORTH CHURCH.—Mrs Langford, of Dod- worth, near Barnsley, has handsomely subscribed the sum of £ 100 towards the erection of a new Church at that I)Iace.-Leeds Intelligencer. The Rev. Dr. WARREN, of Manchester, has se- ceded from the Wesleyan connexion, and become a member of the Church of England, rhe foundation stone of a new church, of which Dr. Warren is to be the incumbent, to be built by public subscription, was laid yesterday week by Sir Oswald Mosley, Bart., in Everey-street, Manchester, in the presence of a large concourse of people. It appeaTS that the Bishop of Chester had promised to ordain Dr. Warren, provided his friends could succeed in erecting a church for him. LORD FRANCIS EGERTON has been re-elected Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow for the ensuing year. THE MARQUIS OF LAWSDOWVE has subscribed the liberal sum of X. 100 during the past week to the Salisbury Diocesan Church Building Society, being his Lordship's second donation. REX V. JODDRELL CASE.—Our clerical readers are aware that a case has been selected for the purpose of again raising the question as to the proper mode of rating tithes. The name of the case selected is Regina v. Capel, and the argument was fixed by the Court of Queen's Bench to be heard on Saturday. The tithe owner's case was complete and ready for argument. The Attorney General, however, on the part of the landowners, succeeded in postponing the hearing until next term.
THE MARRIAGE OF HER MAJESTY.
THE MARRIAGE OF HER MAJESTY. The following apparently official paragraph ap- peared in the ilturning Chronicle on Wednesday last: — "Summonses have been issued to all the Privy Council to attend the Queen on Saturday next, to receive a communication from her Majesty. We are not at liberty to allude to the subject of this communi- cation, but it may be readily inferred." We presume that the subject to be submitted to the Privy Council is the marriage of the Queen, which has lately been the subject of pretty general conversation in the Court circles. THE TWO Pursers of Saxe Cohurg Saalield, Ernest and Albert, left Windsor Castle on Thursday week, tor Dover, to proceed direct to Brussels, on a short visit to their uncle, the King of the Belgians, previ ously to their return to Germany. Prince Albert's return to England has been arranged to take place in March next, and in the course of the following month, or early in May, the marriage of Her Majesty with this fortunate youth," it is said, will take place. THE QUEEN DOWAGER has been on a visit to Sir Robert and Lady Peel, at Drayton Manor. Her Majesty's reception during her progress, and on her visit to Tamwortli, &c., was of the most enthusiastic nature. His Royal Highness PRINCE GEORCE OF CAM- BRIDGE has returned to England,

CAPTURE OF ZEPIIANIAH WILLIAMS.
CAPTURE OF ZEPIIANIAH WILLIAMS. Every respectable reader will be rejoiced to hear that the above Traitor and Atheist was caught on Thursday morning in the Pennarth Roads, Cardiff, by M r Stockdale and the Car- diff Police, fast asleep in a berth, on board the Vintage, bound for Oporto. He was examined, and committed by Mr Richard Reece, F.S.A., the Mayor of Cardiff, and the Rev. Thomas Stacey, and sent in safe custody, in a chaise, to Newport. When first apprehended he per- sisted in declaring his name to be Thomas Jones, and even when recognized by Mr Stacey, he maintained the same lie. Shortly after, how- ever, he owned to the Mayor that he was Zephaniah Williams, which was confirmed by Mr Powell, of the Gaer, who identified him. About 120 sovereigns and several packets of Spanish dollars were found 011 his person. This disgusting reprobate has been a greater Trai- tor to his God than to his country he has always maintained, and far as his ignorance would enable him, lie. has circulated Infidel and even Atheistical doctrines. All the harm we wish him is that his offended Redeemer may have mercy upon him TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERTHYR GUARDIAN. sm,-Being lately in the Reading Room of this 11 city, where much disgust was expressed at the un- manly conduct ot the individual who hissed when the health of the exemplary Qneen Dowager was drunk, attheHateButeCanat Dinner, at Cardiff; a gentle- man present said that the person who hissed was (I give you his own words,) a silly coxcomb who lived at Merthyr, and also had a house within a few miles of it, and that he was a Papist" This description, may'probably enable some of your readers to find out who the "silly coxcomb" was. One^would suppose that no one but a bigotted Papis^vould be so lost to all proper feeling, Hs to display such malignity at witnessing so much enthu- siasm in drinking the health of so arable and so illustrious a Protestant. Your Servant, ONE OF THE INDIGNANT GUESTS. Bristol, Nov, 16, 1839.

They are stationed for the present in the town Poor House. REEs LOlJGIIOR, jun., who by his gallantry, saved the lives of the crew of the Les Enjantes Chen's, wrecked near Monknash, in January last, has been rewarded by a gold medal from the King of the French, a bronze medal from the Committee of Lloyd's, a silver medal and five pounds from the Royal National Institution; and we trust that the example of this young man will be fo'lowed by others on the coast when opportunity offers, and that the re- putation of the inhabitants of the coast of Glamor- gan may henceforward be very different from what it hitherto has been in respectto their treatment of ship- wrecks.

HIGHWAV RoBitERs.-Oti the night of the last Alx rdare Kail three ruffians, in smock frocks, stop- ped one of the Aberaman servants, near the Ynislwyd Walk, and, presenting a pistol at his licid, robbed him of al! his money. The same gang, 011 Monday night last, (the day of Bridgend Fair) stopped two men returning to Cowbridge. and, presenting a pistol robbed them of £25. This was at the junction of the old and new road near Brocastle. The party robbed were Griffiths, of the Cowbridge Arms Tavern, and Williams, a shoemaker, of Cowbridge. It is due to the credit of the county to apprehend these audacious scoundrels; they are Englishmen, and appear to have no change of dress; and an honest and intelligent policeman eOllld take them without much difficulty.

ON LlFE ASSURANCE.
ON LlFE ASSURANCE. The following is the substance of a lecturc rercntlT dt-livered on this subject, by the Rev. T. Davies, the English Baptist Minister of Mi rtlivr. In endeavouring to unfold the subject of my leeture, and to bring it before you in its various aspects of interest and advantage, my aim will be to deal in un- disputed facts, and simple, clear, and explicit state- IIwnts, wllich will not fail, I trust, of fixing your attention upon it. It will be necessary that 1 should, first of all, give yotisoitic information on the subject of Life Assurance in !eiieril ;it subject than which, none more impor- tant occurs in the whole economy of domestic life. This is the more necesssary on account of the igno- rance which prevails even among well-informed men, respecting the data on which assurance transactions arc based. A very able article, on this subject, ap- peared in the Eclectic Review of May last. This article was re-printed for general circulation. In pre- paring for this occasion I considered myself quite at libet tv to make any use I pleased of the contents of that document, and have, whenever it was practicable, introduced many of the points which are therein so lucidly and forcibly discussed. We have found," says the writer, "on some occasions, with no little surprise, that these transactions have been regarded as kindred, if not identical, with those of the gambler; a notion which could never have been entertained if • the first rudiments of the science oil which they proceed had been understood. As in numerous other instances, so in tliis.ignorance has confounded the dictates of wis- dom, thearrangementsof an honourable prudence, with the recklessness of an unprincipled speculation." The language is strong, but it is not too strong, as we may presently see. We cannot, indeed, be too cautious in shunning every thing in the shape of gambling. A system, which in whatever way it be practised, blasts the best feelings of the human heart, and uniformly proves, not only detrimental to, but subversive of the best mora) principles. A system which induces in the mind the keenest anxiety, and a total recklessness of honourable or honest pursuits. Gambling is a vortex which has ingulphed the fairest patrimonies and the brightest prospects of personal and social happiness. Tbeevils it has inflicted on indiv iduals and families are untold. The heart sickens at the thought. But to place an assuratu e transaction on the same footing as the lottery, or some similar foolish Rlld hazardous spe- culation, is to indulge in another blind and pernicious extreme. A few remarks will, perhaps, put you in possession of sufficient iuformation to decide the mat- ter for yourselves. All insurance transactions are based on two facts, one of which is obvious to every man; but the other, though equally ceri-iiii, is far from being so generally apprehended, and, indeed, is only to be made out by a large induction of particulars, spreading over a wide surface, and extending through a series of years. These two facts arc-first, the uncertainty of in. dividual lives; and, secondly, the fixed and unvarying laws, by which the lives of a community are regu- lated. As to the former, I need not dwell upon it. There is no calculating on human life under any cir- cumstances. Family longevity- vigour or constitution -habitual moderation—a salubrious climate-aclivo habits—all these put together cannot exempt us from early death not to mention the thousand accidents to which we arc exposed, and by which, daily, human life is cut off. No man can affirm respecting himself or any other man, that he shall live at the close of a year, a month, a week, or even a day. Life is un- certain." This applies to every age-iii every coun- try—and in every circumstance. The latter fact requires greater attention for it brings us to consider the prime principle oil which Life Assurance legitimately proceeds. It is now well-known that it is possible to ascertain with very considerable accuracy, notwithstanding all accidents of life, what will be the average duration of the lives of any considerable number of persons,—say the iu. habitants of a town of ordinary size, or of a country, or kingdom. Having ascertained the population of any such locality, it will only be to register the mor- tality occurring there during any sufficient number of years, and the data thus gathered from the past,— representing the number and ages of the parties who have died, will be found to correspond with only such slight deviations as counterbalance each other, with what will occur among the same population during a similar future period, their circumstances remaining substantially the same. In reference to what has now been stated, Mr Babbage, a celebrated name, known to most of my audience, says-" Nothing is more t)roverbially uncertain than the duration of human ljfe, when the maxim is applied to an in- dividual; yet there are few things less subject to fluctuation, than the average duration of a multitude of individuals." On these two facts as we have already remarked, all assurance transactions proceed. But wo have something more to do with this statement than merely to explain a theory, We shall consider the two points separately. The uncertainty of individual life- renders Life Assurance necessary, as a provision for an exigency which is future-hut whether distant or proximate, is uncertain. Whether it shall occur to- morrow, next week, next year, or after the lapse o>f many years, the event alone can determine. Neees- sary and absolutely so indeed to certain classes in Society. To the affluent man I would not speak of the necessity of making this sort of provision for those who are dependent upon him, and who may survive him. To him I would only S:lv-" Use the world as. not abusing it." Do not, by prodigality, disappoint < the just expectations of surviving relatives. But to> those who live by their own exertions, such as trades- people whose capital is all their business, mechanics^ maiiual labourei-q, &c.. and they are a large majority of the community, the expedient offered bva well- constituted Assurance Society, for providing towards the future support of those who are dependent of their care—has many claims to serious attention. And he who disregards these facilities until it be too- late-,liid who, in dying, leaves behind him a family unprovided for, miserably fails in the discbarge of a paramount social duty. Indifference, in many Ca.M!S,. may be the reason why many are guilty of such pitiful improvidence. Ignorance in some, and conscientious objection in others. Let us take these in an inverted! order. Those who object on grounds of conscience to sodto an anticipative provision, do so, because they think that such a measure betokens mistrust of God's pro- vidence. It is true that we are commanded in scripture" TO. take no thought for the morrow for the morrovr shall take care of the things of itself." But the- common sense of this and similar passages, iy that we must not be unduly anxious about future, supplies, but rather depend on Him who clothes the- flower of the field, in its unrivaled beauty, and fur- nishes the bird of the air with its meat in due season;. The objection is not the dictate of an enlightened piety. It has no countenance from s ripture nor fromi reason. In short, it is in palpable opposition to the- rules adopted in a thousand analogous cases. Suchi is our condition in the world that we arc always in. some way or other, if we do our duty, making some; provision for the future. Other evils are guaodtal against, and why not this,-this which involves em- sequences of a fearful nature, bringing with. itt not only penury and social discomfort, but expssinfp its innocent victims to a thousand moral danglers ftom which a little foresight and self-denial woold have exempted them. The accumulation of wealtlk,—the laying up of treasures upon earth,—is ao legitimate object for a Christian but this is a totally different- thing,—different both in the spirit which prompts it, and in the end which it soeks.-from those prudentiali arrangements, that are designed merely to supplyv the inevitahte wants attaching to our cotxtitieM; and, for which, nothing but parental foresight and self- denial can make provision. In the one case, pride: and worldly mindedness may, and in the majeritw of instances undoubtedly do, operate; buttiikttbe other, we sw. the workings of that parent.%) feeling deeply seated in tho human henrt, which know& no selfishness, but seeks in the happiness of others its. own niijoymeiit. Such a procedure is equally com- patible with the precepts of Christianity and with. the domestic affections which are implanted in ouir hearts. If such an objection originated in mistak- ing the seii^e of Scripture, it may not be useless to» direct the attention of such ohjections to a strikingr passage, the sense of which cannot easily be misun- derstood. n is (j, Tiia v 8) tllis;t,f pi ovif e not for his oivn, and especially for those off us own house, he hath dtenied the faith, and is wors th;") the infidel." Now these persons would tioti, per laps, argue against making some provision for ro Lillie of sickness- Say, that they enter a club, ro we '-constituted club, he makes a certain proviwom for that which may occur,—a time of sicklies^—;si 1 isableinent, by one of the thousand accidents to* especially labourers and mechanics are exposnf in stieh a locality as this or some other mnnuftoturriig district; they would not say,—" We will n«t ootw a club, because it will evince a distrust of Gbd's>pro- 'l'I absurdity of the objection womfl be palpable, even to the obtrusest intellect. And yet the principle is precisely the same. The difference in the case is simply this:—by the club you provide "uceour for yourself aud family during a time of sick- ness,—by the assurance of life you make provision- for those of your family who may survive you. Lest; I may be in the least misunderstood here, I uishi to state, that Life Assurance and clubs are so far- from being opposed to one another that they have ai common object, namely, that of making provision) "or the future,-the exigencies, only when they an- ticipate being distinct. To those who have clubs* otily, I would say one thing you lack yet. Insurer your lives. A well-constituted club is a public-- good.

DEAR SIRS AND BROTHERS,— WHEREAS late events, and our firm attach- ment to the Laws and Institutions of the Govern- ment. under which we live, and enjoy so many blessings, renders it a duty imperative upon its, as District Officers, to call your immediate attention to the LATE CHARTIST PROCEEDINGS in Monmouth- shire, &c. by causing a strict and most rigid enquiry to made into the conduct of every Brother whom you may have the least suspicion of being involved in those dis- graceful and ever-to-be lamented transactions; or, of assisting, aiding, or abetting, or by any other means giving any support or countenance to the same, so as to become a participator therein and to enforce the Laws of the Order asainst each and every Brother you may find guilty of having so offended and to transmit to the C. S. of the district the result of such enquiry, with a correct list of the offenders with every possible speed. In this fail not, or the Laws of the Order will be strictly and rigorously enforced against you and your Lodge. Having confidence in you. and depending on your warmest attachment to the Laws and Principles of our most Loyal and Honorable Institution, We remain, dear Sirs and Brothers, i Yours truly in F.
