His Lordship is succeeded in his titles and estates by his bro- ther, the Hon, Henry Sedley, of Nutall Temple in the county of Nottingham. The young man (William Owen) mentioned in our last, as being so dreadfujly wounded by incaniiously firing a cannon at Penrbyn Port, expired a few hours afterwards. The English Catholic Committee and tiie Irish Catholic Board are at variance on the conduct of Or. Milner the former disapprov io his conduct as too violent, and the fatler sllpportltlg him as the energetic advocate of their cause. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has 01,. tained leave Jo bring in a Bill for amending the Local Token Act, and permitting Local tokens to pass current, under certain regula- tions.. The increased allowance to innkeeners and others of two-pence per day for the subsist- ence of non-commissioned officers & soldiers, is to take place on the 241 h inst. when they are iQ be allowed ten-pence per day for each man On Tuesday morning a race of two miles was run between Captain Barclay, of pedes-j Irian fame, and Lieutenant Needham, of ihe Till Hussars, which was won by the latter.

So numerous are periodical publications, that parents are at a loss which to purchase; and il is of the greatest importance, consider III, the manl loose writing;s of the present dav, that works uniting morality to elegance, and good principles to taste, should be placed before the younger branches of a family.

It. having-beef) asserted in a former number of our Paper, that the Auction Duties, under an Act of Parliament, were due to the Excise iiom ail persons disposing of Tythes, accord- ing to the established practice throughout the principality we have now authority to state, for the information of the Clergy in particu- lar, that a case having been drawn up and submitted to the judgment of two distinguish- ed Banislers, their opinions arc that Tythes, being legally judged to be of the nature of I Tenements, and thus entitling the proprietors to settlements, ought to be considered among the exemptions in the Auction Act, and that therefore the duty of 5 per cent, to be levied on properly sold by auction, does not apply to I them. It may be prudent, however, for the person actually letting tythes by auction, io furnish himself with a licence, a» the Act directs. directs. On Saturday last, the Local Militia of this county, commanded by Lieut.-Colonel T. A. Smith, were reviewed on theirexercise ground near Carnarvon, by Major-General Llayard, who was pleased to express his high admira- tion of the discipline and steadiness of the corp. The hat talion, after the general salute, marched past in slow and quick time, went through the manual and platoon exercise, formed columns of companies and grand divi- sions, upon the right and left, close column of companies upon the central division, fired several rounds by companies, twice by wings, and one general volley, in a manner that greatly surpassed our most sanguine expecta tious. Indeed, when it is considered how short a time the men have been under arms, it is a matter of astonishment that they could have been so soon brought to such a state of perfee tion and while this refleds the hihest credit ipon the Officers, who have been unwearied in their diligence, it confers no small degree of merit upon the foi, the strict obedience and the marked attention, which they have uuiformly shewllto the orders of their supe- rb rs; and itis highly gratifying to thecountry to learn, I hat their general conduct during the time they have been stationed at Carnarvon, has been sober, quiet, orderly, and correct.— After the inspection, Colonel Smith treated the reviewing Groneral, and the Officers of JIIS owncorps,together with the Member for the County, Colonel Sparrow, and several Officers of the Royal Anglesey Local Militia (who politely attended on this occasion in their uniforms) and many other friends, wiih a handsome dinner at the Hotel, where the even. ing was spcnt with the greatest harmony and conviviality. Among the toasts (which were pretty numerous, and well selected) we parii cularly noticed the following :— The King.—The Prince Regent..—The Queen, and the remaining branches of the Royal Family. --L,oi-cl Wellington, and our gallant Army in the Pellinsula.-The Emperor of Russia and Kingof Prussia, allrl may the Armistice not lead to an inglorious Peace, or tead to injure the interests of Great Britain —The Lord Lieutenant of the County.—The Member for the County.-The Bishop of thl Diocese, and the Protestant estab- lishment of Ihese realms.-Tile Town and Trade of Carnarvon, and the free navigation of the Straits or iVlenai.-—The Member for the Borough, Capt.

CAM- BRIA DEPlcrA. Agreeable Surprize. A short time since the widow.of a tradesman, who resided at Datchet, near Windsor, departed nns life; and .after her remains had been consigned to their last abode, the family met to divide her properly, wlicii, to their inexpressible satisfaction they discovered a hoard, containing 160 guineas iu gold; silver to the amount of 501; and a bushel basket filled with halfpence &c. which the provident lady had carefully concealed. An extraordinary circumstance took place at Biandford a few days sikice :-A cat be- I longing to a poor person, came into the bouse, and put down from her mouth a young partridge; she then quitted the room, and soon brought iti another, and so continued till she had brought into the house nine, all alive and well. One of them is smce tteatt the rest are placed under a hen, who takes as much care of tiietii as li" they were her own offs- pring. Shocking -011 Monday another murder was committed at No. 5. Coal-yard, Urury-lane, by a person named Welch, on the body of a woman called Mary Baker, with whom he cohabited. The unfortunate crea l tore who has thus fallen a victim, lays in a most dreadful and mangled state. It is sup- posed to have been done hy a poker, which was found .much bent and bloody near Ihe de- ceased. The miscreant has absconded, and taken with him every article he cuuld CUll vc nienl I v carry oil". The following most extraordinary circum stance is mentioned in a letter from Edill burgh:—A Gentleman of respectability, n.. the medical profession, cut his throat last Saturday, in that city. tmmcdiateiy hefor, he committed suicide, it is said he wrote a paper, in which he acknowledged that he was the person who rohhedand murdered Begbie, the porter, some years ago. II is remarkable, that wneu the twdyof Begbie was examined after Ihe murder, the surgeons expressed an opinion, from the nature of the wound, thai the assassin was a person of anatomical know- ledge. It appeared, from the annual Report read a the late anni versary meeting of the Nation- al Society, that the number of schools formed in connexion with the Society are five tunes greater than at the time of the preceding all. nual report, and, of course, the number of children educated iudillereut parts of the king- dom, on the Madras system, has increased in ahont the same proportion. Besides this. a number of schools have been formed on the same plan, in various places, which have not yet established a connexion with the National Society so that the gratifying hope is encou raged, that the blessings of sound religion and morality,by means of this system ofeducatipn, may soon be effected m ilnskingdom to a very satisfactory extent. Every body knows that cottons of all Isinds are apt to receive a dirty, yellowish, or orange stain fVom iron, which, if allowed to remain, graduallycorrodcs the cloth, and forms a hole. At first these stains are easily removed by means of muriatic acid, or any other diluted I acid (except vinegar:) but, after they have remained for some time, acids have no effect upon them. It may acceptable to our readers to point out the method of removing these! moulds in such inveterate cases. There are I two methods of doing I lii,,j both of which in the present case answer the purpose complete- ly. The first is to touch the mould with the yellow liquid formed by boiling a mixture of potash and sulphur in water, called by chem- isls hydrogurated slllphuTet of potash; tile mould becomes immediately black, and the action of diluted muriatic acid effaces it in- stantly. The second method is to daub file mould over with ink, so as to make it quite black after this, muriatic acid takes it ou j as iu the former case. The time appointed for the establishment of the Flintshire Auxiliary Bible Society, is the first day of the ensuing assizes for that county. The Light-house oh the Smalls is repaired, and a light is now exhibited thereon, which will be continued in the night, as before.

A ery interesing- correspondence is said to have recently passed between Earl Liverpool and Lord Kenyon, on the important subject of Lord Harrowby's Stipendiary Curates Bill. Lord K. has on all occasions manifested him- lf a warm advocate for the rights of tbe Church. A few days ago the Bow-street Officers ar' rived al Welsh pool in search of an aged per son, who had for some time resided in that town under the fictitious name of Boswell.- I He was apprehended, and conveyed to town, underwent an examination,and was fully coin- milled tor t rial. The crime, we understand* is forgery. He had resided in Shrewsbury, I where he assumed the name of Browne. At the request of several respectable indivi- duals, we considered it our duly in ollr last to intimate the great want of a regulation in the Police of this City-wliicl, representation, we have been given to understand, has, in a res- pectable meeting, been condemned as highly improper—had they been residents in (his city, we are convinced such disapprobation could never have been expressed—for our as- isertion, we reler to the most respectable in- j habitants thereof, who have been so much I annoyed during the last winter, as to have it | in contemplation to form a Society amongst themselves, for the purpose of watching tlie city 'during the night by turns !—we further refer to the magistrates themselves for the truth of our assertions—and conclude, by ob- s serving, we shall ever be tii-ttj to otir purpose, in endeavouring to redress every grievance < which the public may labour under, as far as o,ii, means, our houudeu duty, can 11 t!

I Letters from Heligoland, on Tuesday, men- l'iona report. of a evere action having been I fought, near Lubec, be ween the united French and Danes, and the Swedish army, commanded by the Crown PrinCt in person, ill which the former were defeated willi loss. It was added, that several waggons had arrived at Allona with wounded Danes; and all expec- tation was entertained that the French would soon be oblig-ed to quit Hamburgh. For the accuracy of these statements we cannot un- dertake to vouch. Fortunate Escape and Preservation•—Mr. Cowan ami Mr. Coutts, two masters of vessels, latelv effected their escape from a French I prison, where they had been confined for more than nine years, and were picked up at sea, I" in a boat only four feet long, by the Andro- !j in a boat only four feet long, by the Andro- macho frigate, Captain Tobin, while cruising on the coast of France. They had been fur- nished with bread and water, a compass, f quadrant, &c. by an American captain and I were two days and nights at sea, happily ex- | perieucing ifne weather all the time; but only j a few hours atler-they were picked up. a ire I meudotis gale of wind came on, with a heavy I sea, which continued more than forty-eight I hours; and had they not been thus timely res- cued by the interference of Providence, they most unquestionably must have been consign ed to a waterv grave.

A pamphlet published in the year 1738, en titled," A leiler to Ihe Society of Booksd- ters.onthe method of lorming a true judmenl of the Manuscripts of Authors," contains some curious literary intelligence, and is as follows: We have known books, says our writer, thd* in the MS. have been damned as well as others which seemed to be so, since, after their appear- ance in tile world, they ti-ave ol'ten lain by neg lected.

And which isanother remarkable instance, the MS. of Dr. Prideaux s Connection, is well known to have been handie l about from hand to hand, among several, at least five or six, of the most eminent booksellers, dur- ing the space of at least two years, to no purpose, none of them undertaking to print, that excellent work. It therefore lay in obscurity, till Arch- deacon Kchard, the author's friend, strongly re- commended it to Tonson. It was purchased,and t,he publication was very successful. Robinson Crusoe's manuscript, also ran through the whole trade, nor would any one print i 1, though the writer, De Foe, was in good repute as an author One bookseller at last, not remarkable for his discernment, but. very much so for his specnlarive turn, engaged in this publication.
