LONDON, SATURDAY APRIL S. PARIS, MARCH 30.-It is confidently Stated that the coronation of His Majesty is poiiti»ely postponed to the 12th of June. It was not the time required to complete the preparations, as some have seemed to think,that causs-d this resoiution. The greatest activity prevailed at well at Rheims as at Paris, and workmen were employed, both day & night, to get every thiDg ready by the I5tli of May. At it is Session of ffc* ?&& frill not he terminated by that period, we need seek for no other cause for this delay. The month of Jane offers a greater chance of fine weather, both for the solemnity and the fetes which are to follow it. It is stated that three hundred guards will be ordered from Paris to attend the ceremony of the coronation, and that they are already about to be removed.
INDIA.—It has been apprehended that our cotton produce to the northward must have suffered severely from the drought but notwithstanding the scarcity of rain we learn that the crops this year are very rich, and by the last accounts, only re- quired a few showers of rain to bring them to perfection, in which case they are ex- pected to yield 25 per cent. above last year's produce. But should no rain fall, our informant confidently assumes that sufficient cotton will be produced to sup- ply the wants of the market on this side of India, though at a rate of 25 per cent. less than that of last year. WE should think that the opinion given in the Court of Chancery, by the Lord Chancellor would have a serious effect on the modern schemes. His Lordship stated, that excepting a special Act of Parliament were got in every case, each partner in these schemes, though posses- sing only a single share, would, in case of the bankruptcy of a scheme concern, be liable for the debts of the concern to the whole extent of his property, on the same principle that an individual was in com- mon partnerships. This is but fair for at would be highly improper that a Com- pany—we will say of Fishmongers or Milk- men, consisting only of six partners, should carry on trade, and that each partner should be liable in the whole extent of his property to the debts of the concern, ^shareholders, each sharehulder should L liable only to debts of the concern <0 the extent to which his share went.— This would, indeed, be encouraging a mo- nopoly at the expeuce of individual trade. We hope when the Scheme Bills come be- fore either House that this unjust distinc- tlon may be considered. If it be not, and these Companies go on increasing, there will not be a retailer or a wholesale trader safe from the most serious interfe- rence on the part of Companies, who, by the mere dint of capital, may for a time carry all before them. The question of the Combination Laws, is one of very great interest—and of equal difficulty. That the subject is a fit matter for legislation every one must admit, who reflects that the great business of law is to protect men from each other-the weak from ^the strong-the simple from the crafty—and the single man, or small num- ber, from the injustice of multitudes whose interests, passions, or caprice, may tempt them to trample upon the rights of others. Whenever one man is, from whatever cause, in The power of another, the Mo- ralist will tell us that he is in danger of injustice; and the legislature, unless re- strained by some strong antagonist princi- ple, will ioterpose his pic £ ect,°n* „<•», frJnpipnl di dis- cussing the question of the Combination Laws arises out of the infinite vanety of 4relations which may subsist between em- ployer and labourer, which renders it nearly impossible to provide a remedy comprehensive enough to meet every case ivhich yet shall not work hardships in some, Penalties no doubt ought to be the last resort of a lawgiver, and there- fore in every case where the tyranny of combination can be met by competition competition ought to be preferred to pu- nishment. In those trades, however, where compe- tition cannot be called in, punishments may be employed without reserve. These considerations apply to cases where the conspirators are merely passive-when they presume, however, to the exercise of active tyranny in whatever form, they be- come proper objects for the sharpest cen- sures of the law.

PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGS. The proceedings of Parliament on Wednesday were not very interesting. The sittingi; of both Houses were unusually small. In the House of Lords- Earl Grosvenor presented several petitions against cruelty to animals. In the House of Commons- A great number ofmiscellaneouil petitions were presented. Returns of all the forty shilling free- holders in Ireland were ordered. The Police \4 ;œttlood;. lonies' Pardbn Bill. The Threatening Letters ,Bill was read a third time and passed and the East India Judges Bill was read a second time. A short discussion arose upon the motion for the second reading of the Quarantine Laws Amend- ment Bill. Mr. John Smith complained, that the bill did not go far enough. He urged the expediency of repealing the whole system of sanatory regula- tions and argued strongly against the doctrine of contagion. Mr. Wallace said, that whatever might be the bias of his own mind, he did not conceive the non-contagious nature of the plague to be so firmly established as to justify the possible risk of ad- mitting so terrible an evil. Mr. H. Gurney ridiculed the ultraphilosophism of those who would in pursuit of a theory incur the tremendous danger, against which the qua- rantine laws are directed he avowed himself, however, extremely desirous to remove from these laws itll unnecessary and vexatious regulations. Mr. Hobhouse argued at some length in favou, of the doctrine of non-contagion, and against the quarantine laws. He cited the authority of Sir R. Wilson, who could from personal experience, speak of the nature of the plague. Sir R. Wilson, in consequence of the call made upon him by the member for Westminster, con- fessed to entertain an opinion that the plague was not contagious, but did not go the length of advising a repeal of the quarantine laws. The bill was read a sncond time. The House of Parliament met last night; bu as the sole purpose of their assembling was to forward some unimportant business, which, if suf- fered to lapse, would be lost for the Session, their proceedings were altogether uninteresting. They adjourned to the 13th of this month. ""r-
FEMALE FASHIONS FOR APRIL. English Fashions. EVENING DRESS.—A tunique robe and petti- coat of celestial blue levantine the petticoat or- iiamented at the border with a double rouleau next the feet, over which is arow of oblong folds, formed into puffs by being confined by two leaves of the water lily of Spain down each side of the robe, and round the border, is the same ornament, but on smaller dimensions, and enclosed by a nar- row rouleau on each side of the puffs and foliage. The body is plain, except that this trimming commences from the tucker, and forms, as it descends the sides ofthe robes, a kind of stomacher; the corsage is surmounted by a narrow tucker of blond, a la Vandycke. The sleeves are short and full, and ar« finished to correspond with the trimming on the other parts of the dress. White satin opera hat. with a splendid plumage of white feathers, edged and tipped with blue. Ear pendants and necklace of finely-wrought gold, the latter formed of two rows of cameo, surmounted with gold in fillagree work,— World of Fashion and Continental Feuilletons. PROMENADE OR CARRIAGE DRESS,—Pelisse a la Vestale, of gros de Naples; the colour mignio- nette green, fastening imperceptibly down the front of the skirt, beneath a rich and novel trim- ming, forming one broad facing, narrow at the bottom of the waist, and extending gradually to the feet: down the centre of this ornament are coeurs renverses. placed at equal distances, each heart is relieved within, by being surrounded by a very narrow rouleau of bottle-green, which gives a peculiar novelty and exqeisite workman- ship, which finishes the outside scollops of the facing. The border of the skirt is trimmed round to correspond with the facing above described. The sleevee are en gigot. and are fastened up the narrow part of the arm. with straps of bottle- green, edged with the same white trimming that surrounds the border. A double cape, pointed a I'aniique, and trimmed with white, falls over the shoulders, surmounted by a very narrow Van- dycke collar of fine lace. A bonnet of pink gros de Naples, trimmed at the edge with blond, a la Neige, and full bows of pink satin in front. with superb plumes of white marabouts bent towards the crown, and placed in two different directions, complete a costume peculiai-ly graceful and ele- gant. either for the morning visit of ceremony, or for the public promenade and morning exhibitions. The bonnet fastens carelessly under the chin, with broad lappets of blond. —iiiH— I
BELZONL'S TOMB. We were favoured yesterday with a private view of this exhibition, which is about to be opened to the public inspection in Leicester-square. It consists in a great measure of the same things that were introduced by Belzoni himself, into his former exhibition at the Egyptian Hall, with some additions made, we presume, from the sub- sequent discoveries of that enterprising traveller. The present exhibition is chiefly curious from the great field it opens to the hieroglyphical amateur, who may there exercise his ingenuity without the expence and risk of a journey of many thousands of miles. The specimens contained in this col- lection are on that account very valuable, and naturally lead to the inquiry of what the Egyp- tian hieroglyphic mainly consisted. The writ- ing of that country was of four kinds first, the hieroglyphic, and this was two-fold: the more rude being called curiologic, and the more artN ficial tropical; the second, syiiii)(Ylic. and this likewise was two-fold the more simple, and the more mysterious: that tropical. this allegor.ica!. These two kinds of writing (which went nndcr the generic term of hieroglyphics, distinguish- ed into proper and symbolic hieroglyphics,) were not composed of the letters of an alphabet, but of marks or characters which stood for things not words: a distinction which St. Austin his- very happily illustrated by his expression.'SKgan sint verba visibilia verba signa audibilia.* The third kind of Egyptian writing was designatell Epistolic. so called from its being first applied to civil matters; and the fourth Hjero-grammatic, from being used only in relwidis—these tw^ las.t mistake to suppose that the Egyptians were only able to express su-ch ideas, as they wished to set down, by pictures or figures only; it was their choice, and not their necessity, that induced th^-su to adopt that mode. and though it N true that at first it was their poverty, and not their will COIl. sented, as was, indeed, the case with all nations, yet, subsequently, either from thedesireof secresy or some little lurking vanity, which would not allow thi in to suppose any tiling tlHeÎr fathers did before them t > be ustless, the custom of expos- ing thoughts by signs was continued by them as long as they continued to flourish with their ori- ginal vigour.
B ow-STREET.—DEMOLISHED BONNET.—Miss Marguerite Fitzhenry was. charged with having clawed Mrs. I rsule Broadbent from the verv top of her forehead to the tip of her nose; and Mrs Vrsulc Broadbent was charged with having scandalously outraged the propriety of Miss Marguerite Fitzhenry's drap beaver bonnets and both of them were charged by Mr. Terence Ma- honey, the watchman, with having been bastelv hobstroppylut" in Leicester-sq lIare-" shame for 'em?" The ladies, like those mentioned in the last case, are both dealers in love, and not yet driven to publish their "memoirs." Mrs. Broadbent is broad enough of all conscience, hut not at all bee on the contrary, she is as upright as a drum-major and as fat withal as the catastrophe of a Cape sheep. ii-ii is Fitshenrv. on the other hand, is tall and slender; and she appeared be- fore the Magistrate with hiT torn drap beaver in her hand. and enveloped from head to foot in a grey woollen Opera cloak, which seemed to have done good service in its time. Mrs. Broadbent vowed and declared to his Worship, that as she was walking through Lei. cester-square, about her lawful business," be- tween ten and eleven o'clock on Friday night. Miss Fitzhenry came up to her, and without even a how d'y do," clawed her from the very top of her forehead to the tip of her nose I Miss Fitzhenry, in reply to this tip-top charge declared that Mrs. Broadbent *• inlerleen'd an intippe'hy to her," on account of a young man who was formerly acqneented with her; and that so far from her having clawed Mrs. Broadbent. Mrs. Broadbent Jew at her with immense hetred and totally spffiicutcd her best drap beaver Mrs. Broadbent. replied, and Miss Fitzhenry rejoined and at length they each referred his Worship to Mr. Terence Mahoney, the watch- man. Mr. Terence Mahoney was therefore called forward, and, placing himsel f exactly between the two ladies, he gave the following account of the matter: —" Plaze yer Honour. I'm watchman in that, an I'll tell yer Honour all about it in no time. This lady-pointing with his i-iglit thutu;) to Miss Fitzhenry—"struck that lady pointing with liif, thumb to Mrs. Broarlbent no faith, that lady struck this lady, but this lady struck that lady first, and then this lady—ladies I call 'cm, GOD forgive me! but they're both women may be, and no ladies at all, for they walks my bate late & early, this twelvemonth, an I knows 'em as well as t knows my own wife- that's by sight, yer Honour, and so this lady, struck that lady, and there was a skirmage im- mediately. Hallo come out o' that, says I and all the folks looking at ye but they tuck no heed to me, and bastely hobstroppylus they was, and devle a bit of clawing there was in ii-bar- rin the bonnet, your honour. Come out o'that- says I, but they wouldn't and that struck this, and this struck that, and then this struck that again, and at last this cried Aoft-scond Cried what ?" asked his Worship. Hol>- scond, yer Honour," replied Mr. Terence Ia- honey. And pray, what did she mean by that asked his Worship. Why then, yer honour—bad luck tome it know what she meant at all," replied Mr. Te- i-eiiee Malioiiev -but sure enough she cried hob- scond !— HOB-scond, v t- honour" Mrs. Broadbent begged to explain. The word she made use of was abscond"—when MNs Fitzhenry clawed her so unmercifully, she re- quested her to abscond. Didn't I tell ver honour that? said Mr. Terence Mahoney. Och sure I know everything that's talked upon me owa bate, else I would'nt be a watchman five years last Christmas, and no com- plaint agin me at all at w time and, come o'tliii with your skirmaging, says I, and hob-scoii says she, and they wouldn't heed to me, and so i tuck 'em both to the watch-house, yer honour. You did right, said the Magistrate; and as you have now made out their offence so clearly, the shall both find bail for their better behaviour in futtire ? Many long lives to yer honour!" responded Mr. Terence Mahony, and the ladies were bofSi locked up.
ANTIDOTE AGAINST POISONS.—A correspondent alluding to the numerous cases of death from ac- cidental poisonings, and particularly to the me- lancholy fate of the late Royal Academician, Mr. Owen, adds-" I may venture to affirm there is scarce even a cottage in this country that does not contain an invaluable, certain, and immediate remedy for such events, which is nothing more than a dessert spoonful of made mustard, mixed in a tumbler glass of warm watl. and drank im- mediately, it acts as an instantaneous emetic, is always ready, and may be used with safety in any case where one is required. By making thi simple antidote known, you may be the means of saving many a fellow creature from an untimely end.—Brighton Gazetle.
