The Jews," says Dr. Lockier, Dean of Pe- terborough, "offered my Lord Godolphin to pay five hundred thousand pounds (and they would have made it A million) if the Government would allow them to purchase the town of Brentford, with leave of settling there entirely, with full privileges of trade, &c. The agent from the Jews said that the affair was already concerted with the chiefs of their brethren abroad that it would bring the richest of their merchants hither, and, of coursei an addition of above twenty mil lions of money to circulate in the nation. Lord Molesworth was in the room with Lord Godol phin when this proposal was made, and as soon as the agent was gone, pressed him to close with it. Lord Godatjihin was not of his opinion. lie foresaw that it would provoke two of the most powerful bodies in the nation-the Clergy and the merchants; he gave other reasons too against it. and, in fine, it was dropped..The Jews had better success with Oliver Cromwell, when they desired leave to have a synagogue in London.— They offered him, when Protestor; sixty thou- sand pounds for that privilege. Cromwell tip- pointed them a day for his giving them an an- swer. He then sent to some of the most powerful among the clergy, and some of the chief mer*- chants in the city, to be present at the ineeting.- It was in the long gallery at Whitehall. Sir Pattl RyCaut, who was then a young man, pressed in among the crowd, and said he never heard a man speak so well in his life as Cromwell did on this occasion. When they were all met, he or- dered the Jews to speak for themselves. After that he turned to the clergy, who inveighed much against the Jews as a cruel and cursed people.— Cromwell, in his answer to the clergy, called them Men of GOD and desired to be informed by them whether it was not their opinion that the Jews were one day to be called into the church ? He then desired to know whether it was not every Christian- man's duty to for- ward that good end all he could. Then he flou- rished a good deal on the religion prevailing in this nation, the only place in the world where re- ligion was taught in its full purity was it not then our duty, in particular, to encom age them to settle here, whtre alone they be taught the truth and not to exclude them from the light, and leave them among idolatel's t This silenced the clergy. He then turned to the merchants, who smoke much of their falseness and meanness, and that they would gel their trade from them.— "fis true.' says Cromwell, they are the mean- est and most despised ofall the people.' He then fell into abusing the Jews most heartily, and af- ter he had said every thing that was contemptible and low of them—' Can you really be afraid,' said he' that this mean, despised people, should be able to prevail in trade and credit overthemer- chants of England, the noblest and most esteemed merchants of the whole world Thus he went on, till he had silenced them too and so was at liberty to grant what he desired to the Jews."— These facts were communicated to Dr. Lockier, the former by Lord Molesworth, to whom he was chamberlain and secretary the latter by Sir P. Rycaut, with whom he had travelled. THE LATE DR. MATTHEW BAILLIE.-Dr, Bail- lie's disposition was of the most charitable and generous kind. He was not only in the constant habit of refusing fees, when he thought they could be ill afforded, but he often gave money, and sometimes in considerable sums, where he thought it was well bestowed. A young lady who was suffering severely from a pulmonary complaint, asked his advice, and he recommended her to spend the winter months in a milder part of the country but finding that her circumstances would not admit of htJr trying this last resourse to regain her health, he instantly gave her an adequate sum of money. The following is another instance of his generosity, and of his great delicacy in bestow- ing it. A lady whose rank in life was far above her pecuniary resources, had an illness which made his attendance of the highest importance.— The doctor took his fee regularly every visit un- til his services were no longer necessary; he then left i bag the whole amount of what he had received, offering to the lady as an apology, that he knew that, had he once refused to take his fee during his attendance, she would not have per- mitted him to continue it. The Bishop of Chichester intends to enforce Morning and Evening Service on Sundays in all parishes in his diocese where the population amounts to bOO; thus following the laudable ex- ample or the Bishop of Ba, It and Wells. •* SOUTH AMEIIICAN COOKERY.—Previous to a feast gi\en by the Vice-President, (sa\s Captain Cochrane,) our Host led the way to a tent pitched on the review ground by the military officers: we there found refresrfimsnts of all kinds, and made all excellent luncheon. At the top of the table was placed a large dish of Came con Cuero. which is beef with the hide on, the halt, beitig cut off as closely us possible at the bottom wai half a sheep served up hi the same manner, and at each cdrner of ifte table stood it soldier, with a tremendous long stake thrust through large ribs of beef. This method of serving up the top and bottom dishes is remarkably good the hide from roasting contracts n little. So as to serve as a dish for tlie meat, and prevent the crravy froift escaping you have only then to carve through the meat down to the skin, and cut it in slices, ac- companied by the finest gravy imaginable. Thtt method or 800king the rhs i? hy no means bad they are toasted over the tu-H, and every one cuts off what tie requires, tlie soldier very poiiiely thrtistillg the stake aCIO. ttlt- tàbll with the pending rib, to any one whom he perceives in wautr pi.<the delicacy under his cliat-go, There are two other dishes peculiar to South America, which I recommend to ail epicures, having proved and found, them highly palatable. Take a whwte Sheep or lamb, and having killed the animal, cut the wool oIl as closely as possible stuff it with turkeys, fowls, ducks, game, ham. vegetables, &c. then sew the whole up, and bake it in an oven when served up there are few who do not 4 cut and come again.' The other dish is a pig dressed in a similar manner, havinsr the hair scalded off. The town of Tarma, in Peru, is said ro txte been subjected to a.pestilential fever, which re- turned anntially, and frequently It-It a pain in the side behind it, and proved eventually fatal. De Juan Maria de Galvez, the Governor of the town and its district, conjectured that it proceed- ed from the vile custom of burying the dead in the church, lie therefore, not without great op- position, succeeded in abolishing this oractice and set apart a large burying-giound, or campo santo, as it is called, about three iiiii,ket stl()ti from the town. From that time the lever ceased to appear. Tarma stands in a spOIL which is so surrounded with mountains, as to be absolutely unventilated its unhealthiness had nl ways bet-11 I-imputed to its situation and it had obtained the nallle of cl pais de las lercianrts-the ouiitrv of the tertians. "1 do marvel," says good old Bishop Latimer, that London being so rich a chyi halll [JO burying place without, for no doubt it is an unwholesome thing to bury within the city, especially at such a time when there be great sickness, and many die together. I think verily that many a man taketh his death in Paul's Church-yard; and this I speak of experience- for I myself when I have been there in some mornings, to hear the sermons, have felt such an ill-favoured u"h()!esome savour, that I was the worse for it a great while after. And I think no tess but it is the occasion of much sickness and disease." The pace of a bachelor is sober; he hardly mend it to get out of a storm, though the storm were to threaten a deluge: but sho"w him a woman who is entitled to the compliment of his art, and he will shuffle on as it he was walking for a wager. His housekeeper or his laundress he can talk-to without reserve, but any other of the sex, whose condition is above a use-ful dependent, is his terror, A coffee-house is his sanctum sanctorum against bright eyes and dazxtin" com- plexions here he lounges out half his days-at home he sits down to his unsocial meal, and when his palate is pleased, he has no other passion to gratify. What becomes of him after death I atn, not casuist enough to determine. The felicity of a married man never stands still; it flows per- petual, and strengthens in its passage it is sup- plied from various channels it depends more on others than himself. By a union with the gen- teelest, most polished, most beautiful part of the creation, his mind is harmonised, his manners softened, his soul animated hy the tenderest. liveliest sensations. The house of a married man is his paradise he never leaves it without regret, never returns to it but with gladness-the frieftd of his soul, the wife of his bosom, wel- comes his approach with susceptibility joy flushes her etit-ek-ijiuriial are their transports. Infants climb about his knses, and contend which shall catch tlie envied kiss of paternal fondness. To the existence of a married man, there is no teriuinalion when death overtakes him he is only translated from one hen ven to his glory is immortalised, and his children's children represent him. THE LATE DR. BKDBOES :—I have seen Dr. Beddoes (at Bristol in 1771).) who is a very pleasant man. His favourite prescription at pre- sent, to the ladies is, the iijitaiiii,, tile breath "I cows he does not, like the German doctor, send the ladies to the cow-house; the cows are brought into the lady's chamber, where they are to stand all night with their heads within the curtains. Mrs. who has a good deal ol humour, says the benefit cannot be mutual and she is afraid, if the fashion takes, we shall eal diseased beef. It is fact, however, thet a family have been turned out of their lodging, he- cause the people of the house would not admit the cows; they said they had not built and far. uished their rooms for the hoofs of cattle. The following relation of an extraordinary case of longevity occurs in an Italian newspaper; —Andrea Mancanelli was born at Naples on tht 30th of November, lilfi, and began Jife as a coachman: but surrendering himself to dissipa- tion and debauchery of all kinds, his health wa assailed by a variety of disorders. At twenty- eight he took up the trade of arms: but, perse- vering in his bad conduct, he was driven with dis- grace from his regiment. Condemned twice tt die, with several other individuals, whose num. bers suggested a species of decimnlion according to the military law then in full force he had tin good fortune to escape the fatal lot. In spite CI, all these troubles, and his still unceasing dissipa- tions, this man lived to the age of 109 years, anc died on the 12th of August last, in the hospitai of Syracuse. An old Irish gentleman, who had been aecus, torned to walk round the PitOKuix Park every day, was met. after a long absence, by a friend, who asked him if he still continued to take his usua walk. "No,Sir," replied the old man, "Ichit- not get quite round the park, as I used to do. bu: iustead of it, I go tlaif round and back again.'

WÈ are enabled to lay before the Public this day all the official Statements respect- the Iteveniie for the present Quarter, p and for the whole financial year, of which TO gave a brief sketch on Mondijy 1ast. The view then taken was founded on calcu- lations still in progress but the gratifying -s ,xy?±ajM AttUa.^«iw;cal result has surpassed i v'en theexpectatioas which h*t<i l>et;n form ed. It will be found by a reference to the net produce of the Revenue in the years end- i gg ontbelOth ofÖct, 1824 and 1825, that the latter exceeds by no less a sum than £ 1 863,695. the receipts of the former.— The net Revenue in 1824was £ 47,900,092. in 1825, it is 949,763,187, and what ren- ders this immense increase the more impor- tant, is, that it has arisen notwithstanding He reductions (in some cases amounting ttttost to abolition) which have taken place in the Duties on Silk, Wines, Wool, Spirits, Coals, Law Stamps, and the repeal ofssesed Taxes to the amount of several millions. The augmentation in the corres- ponding Quarters is 9137,504, in favour of that which has just now closed. It is formed in the following manner. In the Customs there is an increase of C2,038,183 in the Stamps, one of 263,839; and in the Post Office, a small one of k4 000 mak- ing altogether £ 2,106,022. But as the augmentation in the Customs is in some measure occasionedby the transfer of many Excise Duties to that branch of the Reve- nue, there is a proportionate decrease in thej Excise, which reduces the balance of increase upon the whole Quater to what we have mentioned) or 9137,594.
