:¡; HEIR TO THE HOUSE OF EATON, p (From-the. ■Ghe.Uf CoartiMt. I It is with reeiiiigs of on.mingledpleasure we announce, that on Friday morning", a little before four o'clock, Lady- Elizabeth Belgrav.e vv.is safe- ly delivered of a sqii-heii- to the honours and vast domains .ofthi^ illustrious house^— at -Eaton Hall, hear this City.. That thisjauspicious event has-diffused a feeling of exquisite satisfaction through this noble family, and its illustrious family connections, is a i'act which will not be disjmtud nor will it be 'questioned, but the same gratifying sensation, through perha»& so,mewl>,»f^ less ardent in its intensity, will spiead itself throughout that vast concourse of people whom the name of Grosvenor is known, as fi-i.ehd, benefactor, "master, and landlord. W.e inost cordially join with this numerous throng in their "d 11 'ct64c6 devont aspirations, that the good ,Providence which has given, mayhiog preserve the life of ttte interesting infant! Early on Friday, morning. the.joyful intelligence had reached the neighbour- ing¡vrllage.'t.andit is hardly necessary to say. that-the district around was presently in motion. The tenantry of the Eaton: family. at Ecclcstoii, Aluford, Parndon. Pulford, Dodleston, Bretton, Waverton, and Whitby, set their bells inactive motion, and grouped together to testify their res- pect» the more wealthy entering intosubsciiptiotis to enable their less affluent neighbours to partake with them of suppers, ale* and t-unch LtUld.in.. Soule, ifigtances. as in Uccleston, the whole fe- male population- of the parish assembled, to tea» after which they were treated with cake ana wine, dance, without distinction This was as it should be; no druukeness or excess were there. The sober and rational expressions of joy spontaneously flowed from the lipt and were depicted in every counte- nance, hearing the marks of hearty sincerity, but without the excitement of coarse revelry, iwd noity im briation. e have this representation from a person on whose veracity we can rely, aud if this recital should meet the eye :ot" any of the nÜbte,inlIÍàtes,of Eaton, we, venture to say,i that it Will be infinitely more accordant with their taste and gratifying 10 their feelings, than if they had learntthat half a dozen bullocks had been spitted, and a hundred barrels of brown stout distributed among the populous. There were a few, who in debating upon the best mode of Shewing their respect on the occasion, pleaded for former good; old customs, as the phrase »s, but their proposals was borne down bv the nata- ral good sense and increasing intelligence, (hNr Una (fitted neighbours. We do not thiok we should be guilty of false reasoning, if we ai.^ula ascribe this predominance of good taste among ri lice o f tile rill-Al population, to the influence of religious education, with which, through the of the Earl and Countess of Grosvenor, this -ex tensive district has for many years been so amp > furnished at all events, the reasonable inetnod which they, selected to testify their joy. dues equal credit to their hearts and their he-ads.

Ofall vices, selfishnesl is that which most fre- qnently Scarries its oWn punishment along with it. As he considers every thing solely in its relation to himself, the selfish man is ardently desirous that 1. -t people pay,attention to him. and nobody thinks of him. Whatever talent he may possess, he cannot eiijoy that of others, through his eagerness to display his own, as admiration is never just in his eyes but when he is the object of it. As the attentions of sofiety are reciprocal, he never re- ceives any he is continually offended and irritat- ed by torgetfuiness and negligence,- that rs never .shown but to him; always^■.■discontented, he' be- comes a.gi-iiinblei-, misanthrope Willi the gress of years, and attains old agll without the happiness of possessing a single real friend.
