i&Qetts. THE WISH. GIVE me a cottage on some Cambrian wild, Where, far from cities, I may spend my days, And, by tlie beauties of the scene beguiled, May pity man's pursuits, and shun his ways. While on the rock I marked the browsing goat, List to the mountain-torrent's distant noise, Or the hoarse bittern's solitary note, I shall not want the world's delusive joys; But with my little scrip, my book, my lyre, Shall think my lot complete, nor covet more; And when, with time, shall wane the vital fire, I'll raise my pillow on the desert shore, And lay me down to rest where the wild wave Shall make sweet music o'er my lonely grave.

3La tmt Intelligence. The Paris Journals of Tuesday have all been received, and from the extracts given in another part of The Sun our readers will be able to form a tolerably correct conception of the excitement which prevails in the French metropolis on the East- ern question. The convocation of the Chambers is now fixed for the 1st of November, till which timethe King is said to have given M. Thiers a carte blanche to resolve and to act as a majority of the Cabinet may deem advisable. This carte blanche was given to the President of the council during an interview with the King on Tuesday morning, after which M. Thiers produced an ultimatum to be delivered to the Four powers, defining the casus belli, which one wri- ter states was forwarded immediately to London. We do not know exactly the purport of this ultimatum, and the question is altogether too grave to justify the making guess-work of the contents of such a document. If forwarded to London, it will, as a matter of course, find its way into the newspapers. We may be permitted to observe that the rumours in the diplomatic circles of Paris were that the ul- timatum restricted the grounds of war to three points —the passing of the Straits of the Dardanelles by a Russian fleet, an attack of the Allies upon Alexandria, and the attempt by the Four Powers to give effect to the sentence of deposition pronounced by the Sultan against Mehemet Ali. Should the first of these assumed eventualities take place, France will declare war against Russia singly, leaving the other Powers to take what course they may think proper. On the other hand, if an attack be made on Alexandria by the British and Austrian squadrons, then war will be declared against these Powers without any reference to Russia. An ultimatum to this effect would open a door for the maintenance of peace. By taking Egypt under her protection France would abandon Syria; which would thus revert to the Sultan, under the auspices of England and Austria. As for the deposition of Mehemet Ali, England has not the re- motest idea of enforcing such a sentence. Indeed we believe that were the Viceroy now to give up Syria, the British Cabinet would employ what influ- ence it has at Constantinople to procure the immedi- ate nullifaction of the Imperial and Ecclesiastical Decree, and even procure a Firman declaring the Government of Egypt hereditary in the family of the Pasha. France continues her preparations for war, which are truly on a most gigantic scale. The Moniteur of Tuesday contains four Royal ordonnances to that effect. The first, dated Sept. 29, on the report of the Minister of War, authorises the raising of twelve regiments of infantry; eight of the line, to be numbered 68 to 75, and four of light infantry, to be numbered 22 to 25. The second dated the same, creates six regiments of light cavalry, three chasseurs, and three of hussars, the former numbers, 13 to 15, and the latter 7 to 9. The third, dated September 30, in- creases the number of companies of the battalion •f1
m stations, and receive orders by signal, without starting tack or sheet, consequently saving port charges, pi- lotage, and loss of time. The system, when suffici- ently carried out, will enable vessels from any quar- ter of the globe (being previously registered in the Telegraph List), to report themselves, or forward any intelligence, on reaching the British shores. We un_ derstand that at present the shipping intelligence re- ceived through the telegraphs already in operation^ will be confined to subscribers to the establishment.— Eastern Comities Herald. I Window Tax In consequence of strong represen- tations from parties aggrieved, the Board of Stamps 119 and Taxes have received directions from the Lords of the Treasury (we quote an official circular) not to charge the windows in a warehouse or manufactory solely used as such, although communicating with the dwelling-house or shop, and manufactory or ware- house, provided such manufactory or warehouse fonn no part of the dwelling-house but only communicate therewith by such a door.—.Gloucestershire Chronicle. Management of Sheep after Michaelmas—Never fold them till late in the evenings, and let them out early in the mornings, unless any particular circum- stance forbids. A flock that is full of flesh at Mich- aelmas will winter much better than one that is lean, and will generally produce many more lambs. Sheep at this season particularly should be attended to do not keep them too long from fodder, wheat, stubble, crass, turnips, and rough grass; on the down or old Iain is now a good food for them; If the turnips are rross, they will make the sheep swell, especially when they eat them on an empty stomach, or in a dry wind, when turnips are wet they seldom have this effect; to prevent it have the turnips pulled some days before the sheep eat them that the greens may wither. When any sheep begin to swell, a shepherd should immediately drive the whole flock off the turnips, but, not against the wind, and give such as are swelled, each half a table-spoonfull of tar mixed with a table- spoonfull of sweet oil. Sheep will not eat the leaves of turnips after a frost has made them brown when sheep eat no other food than turnips they never chew their cud. When sheep are first foddered and have turnips, it is usual to give them good sweet pease, haulm, or thrashed hay, or other ordinary hay, for with turnips coarse fodder will keep them at this sea- ..I. L 1 son. A good method is to give ewes a pen of turnips mornings, then feed them on a down, and give them pease, haulm, or thrashed hay in the fold for their nipper, and fold them at four o'clock, or just soon enough for them to eat it before dark. Some will turn them on the downs mornings, and let them lie in a fold of turnips evenings, having in it some cages filled with pease, haulm, &c. This will do in dry weather and on dry hill land—Ibid.

The Tremendous War Engine.- We learn from a correspondent that the inventor of the extraordinary projectile to which the Times has recently called pub- lic attention, has been offered X400,000 for his secret by a Foreign Power. At one time our own Govern- ment might have had it for £ 100,000. We cannot sufficiently admire the enormous folly of our poco- curante Premier in coqueting with, or rather neglect- ing, as he has done, such a matter as this for in the end he must still conclude with a bad grace the bar- gain, which he might have made advantageously and with a good one. We understand that the ball is of the shape of an egg; that it explodes twice, and that the second explosion is more destructive than the first.

Sir,—I beg to inform you that Capt. Anning, of the schooner Peamore which vessel arrived here yesterday from Newcastle, reports that the light ves- sel on the Galloper has now three masts, which here- tofore had but two and considers it ought to be made public as soon as possible, as many masters of vessels might be deceived in consequence of this alteration, unless immediate publicity were given. I remain, &c. HENRY B. ASH." Starcross, Sept. 26. A very successful surgical operation was performed a few days ago by Owen Philipps, Esq. on The Rev. William Evans, the Baptist Minister, of this town. An abscess had been forming in the thigh of this gen- tleman, which latterly had not only been the scource of perpetual pain but had also increased to a prepos- terous size. On the incision being made, a discharge of an enormous quantity of matter, upwards of two quarts, took place; and we are happy to state that there is a fair prospect of the part attaining its former soundness.
