MISCELLANIES. /'j Miss Patersou, the lady who was married to Jerome jjuonaparte, has for soiue time past resided at Baltimore, and is one of the pa, i; de 1. most lovely women of which that city can boast. Since deserted by her unworthy hus- band, her conduct has been, as it always was, distinguished by its propriety, and mauy arc said to have attempted persuading her to ac- cept a more honourable partner. ) rom her refusals it was believed she liid resolwd to die a Queen-Dowager of Westphalia or ex- pected, perhaps, from the hands of Napo- leon, the erection of some Transatlantic prin- cipality or monarchy hi her own fiivour, of in of Jerome's son. Bui all at once she had attered her mind, renouncing an una ginarv or artificial grandeur, for the expecta- tion of rea) felicity in marriage with all Eng- fish gealleiiiaii, Mr. Oakley, Secretary of the British Legation to the United States of Ame- rica, and sou of Sir Charles Oakeley, Bart, of Shrewsbury. ■■•Madam Jerome Buona- parte's son was born in London, in 4805; A curious decree of the Bishop of London's Court, was.read it, Lile parish Churcli of Isle- worth, on Sunday se'nnight, whereby one iCeane, a market gardener, was'expelled the Church for four months, for brawling aud chiding in the church and church-yard. Two causes-of considerable importance to those concerned ill building, were on Wednes- day determined before the Court of Requests, Bath, between Mr. John Smith, timber-mer- at d ch^nt, at the Albion Wharf, and several saw- yers in bis employ. They had deiiumded what they term throwing the cutting of oak,:elm, or fir scantling, into (luarteq which Mr. S. resisted; as by such oittde-.they had charged 400 feet for every 1,00 they had absolwtaly cut. After a full investigation the Court determined j in favour of Mr. Smith, against the iihposi- tions, eiideavot-ired to be Setup by the sawyers, thereby estahlishingacgeneral rule that these iiien are entitled. td no more admeasurement for their work than where the ^aw absolutely passes. In Newby Park, belonging to Lord Gran- y t. tham, there is now growing an oak tree, of the uncommon admeasurement of 25 Ions, or 1000 solid feetr which, at the present prices oftilllher and bark, is worth upwards of 250 guineas.
