The writer of the volumes now before us is one of the English School of musicians who has done much to ad- vance its fame and sustain its character. For some years in the latter part of the first-half of the present century, the orchestra of no concert or musical festival was con- sidered complete, if Henry l'hillips was not one of its principal vocalists; and although he has now retired from that position, he is still vividly remembered by his sur- viving contemporaries, who who will read these Hecol. lections of the past with considerable interest. Our great vocalist was born on the 31st of August, 1801; and is now, therefore, in his 63rd year. "Born to a fortune," he was penniless before five years of age." His father, Richard Phillips, a barrister, preferred the stage to his profession; and married Miss Baruett, a handsome, bright-eyed little lady, of Hebrew and German extraction," in 18011, at St. Paul's, in Covent Garden and soon after lost all his fortune, by venturing upon management. He purchased a circuit," says his son, in Wales, which included Swansea, Merthyr, Bre- con, Carmarthen, &c., where in a marvellously short space of time, he managed to run through all his property, even to some rows of houses in Euston Road, London. The Adam and Eve," and a number of dwellings on each side, would, but for this mishap, have belonged to me (until of late years they bore our name), but now the once rich heir was a houseless child." The loss of property led to the breaking up the circuit; and, in 1809, his father accepted an engagement at Harrogate, in Yorkshire but not in the York Circuit," then held by the celebrated but eccentric Tate Wilkinson. At Harrogate young Phillips was instructed by his father in declamation, made to read Sterne and Milton; and grounded in the rudiments of Latin." But he had scanty lessons and few opportunities of improvement. As money was needful,—instigated by the success of Young Betty, his parents appear to have entertained the idea of bringing Master Henry Phillips forward as a Roscius. But he would neither act, dance, nor tumble; he could, however, sint. having "an excellent voice, very high, clear and flexible, and had sang many songs before he could speak plainly, which were taught him by his mo- ther," who hail been an apprenticed pupil to Dr. Hook, the father of Theodore Hook, and the Dean of Worces- ter; and the musical conductor and composer at Yaux- hall Gardens,—some years before the popularity of that once famed establishment sunk to the nadir. His sing- ing propensities settled the question and it was arrang- ed that he should make his debut in the Bay of Biscay," which he was to siug" in character." Unfortunately there was no sailor's jacket in the wardrobe of the Company small enough for him and the ingenious tailor of the establishment, sewed up the little tail of his jacket behind, so its to make it into a round one; and as this constituted a hump, he was cautioned to be very careful not to turn rpund, and shew it to the audience. In this attire he made his debut; and he thus describes this important event in his life,—he being in his 9th year. "The play over, there I stood in nervous excite- ment, painted and plumed for the task. The scene was set an open sea-painted on the back of some other scene, where the woodwork was more prominent than the water, and an unmistakable evidence of a street door appeared in the middle of the ocean. All was ready tingle went the bell, up went the curtain, and the glorious orchestra, which consisted of two fiddles and a German flute, struck up the symphony. As I strutted on in the midst of a flash of liglitziit)g,-wliielk electric effect was produced by a candle and a large pepper-pod, filled with the dangerous elements, while somebody shook something behind the scenes with the intention of inducing weak-minded people to believe it was thun- der ;—my reception was very flattering, a storm of ap- plause before the curtain, seemed to strike awe into the storm behind, and I began my theme—' Loud roared the dreadful tlikiiider; pointing my finger towards the left hand sille of the stage, as if the storm came from that direction—which unfortunately it did not-it was a little oversight. At the termination 1 was again loudly applauded. The whole company shook hands with me, all the ladies kissed me, and, in fact, I was the great lion of the evening." Henry Phillips had many years of struggling,first as a singer in choruses, for which he used to obtain 5s. a night; and this partially failing, he cultivated a taste he had for drawing and colouring. My ambition ever soaring," he writes, my brain never still, I visited all sorts of coach houses, stable yards, cow-houses, pig- styes, &c-, to make drawings of anything I could find, that had form and colour,, arranging little groups that had something like originality about them; and having got together a tolerable collectiuu, I put my port-folio under my arm, and entering London by Piccadilly," (his father then lived in Chelsea Common), "went into the first shop I came to, at the corner of Saekville-street, which looked Ii very likely place for my object." He, however, could find no purchasers; so he returned home: drew a number of tapes across the sitting-room window, to which he piuued his pictures, varying from Is. to Id. each and soon effected sales. At that time, Rudolph Ackerman was publishing some of those coloured pauo- ramas, which first made his fame in England. A person connected with his establishment was attracted by the youthful Henry's display, and offered him an engagement to colour engravings. He accepted it; and, he tells us, at this colouring he laboured eight and ten hours a day, for nearly two years; anil frequently earned from 30s. to Ll it iteek, which not only contributed much to the cwufdrt and support othiii tamily, but also enabled him to purchase cheap copies of the songs of Handel, HaSan, and Mozart, from which he commenced his study of Ilhe great masters.ftis was indeed a pursuit of mu- sical knowledge tinder aifflculties. He had been articled to several teachers, but had never had a good master; and had no instrument. A laundress, however, who had in her younger days been a dancer and chorus- singer at some of the London theatres, made his ac- quaintance, through a really elaborate drawing of a laundress's drying-ground," which he had displayed m his window. She possessed a very consumptive piano- forte, with very thin legs, one pedal, and a register of nearly five octaves," to which she allowed him constant access. He then limited his colouring to six hours 3. day, and passed all the rest at the piano-forte. It is true," he confesses, he had not much voice, you might almost say, not any but there peeped, every now and then, a sort of evidence of its coming." He persevered, and it did come. We, who lived when he was in his youth, know how well. Mr. Broadhurst was his princi- pal teacher; and the first engagements at which he dis- tinguished himself, were dinner parties. H. shared his fees with his master, whilst the term for which he was articled to him continued; and he says—" I received from my first engagement, three guineas, £ 1 lis. 6d. of which was to be mine. I cannot express the joy I felt when I placed that sum in the Russell Savings Bank, at Bloomsbury; neither can I express the pride with which I strutted home, conscious of having some money in the Bank. Mr. Phillips does not give us the year of this memorable event; and, indeed, the absence of dates is the great fault of his book. About this time, he had an interview with Charles Kemble, Sir Henry Bishop's Law of Java was brought out at Covent Garden, when Mr. Kemble was lessee and manager. It was opened with the celebrated glee and chorus of Mynheer Vanduuk," written for Mr. Goul- den, alto, Mr. Pyne, tenor, and Mr. Phillips, alitone,- the understanding of the latter with Mr Broadhurst be. ing, that he was to sing a few nights gratuitously, with the offer of an engagement, if he was approved. Time went on; no offer came Broadhurst did not interfere, and losing all patience, Phillips resolved to set the ques- tion at rest himself. He then relates the result: The next morning I went to the theatre, and desired to speak to Mr. Charles Kemble. The theatrical Golil-stick-in- Waiting delivered my message, and, afer a due lapse of time, ushered me into the presence. There sat Mr Kemble, in managerial pride, in a dingy, dusky, dark room, lolling in a great arm-char, behind a huge liaize-covered table, strewed with letters, play-bills, posters, all in seeming confusion. 'Well, sir,' he ex- claimed, in a half-negligent tone, what may be your business ?'—' I wish to speak to you in reference to the glee I sing in the Opera.'—' Well,' he a-ked, what doyou want ?'An engagement,' I said.—'An engage- ment,' he echoed, laughingly; 'and what to do?'— Anything,' I Raid.—'What do expect to receive ?'— 'Anything,' was still my answer; 'say two guineas a Iteek. \Vllat! exclaimed his majesty 'two guineas? Why, sir, you are not worth two shillings they can't hear you over the third rVNv in the pit.' Indeed I replied; then I wish you good morning. Stop hallooed Kemble you'll sing the glee to-night?'—'No! If I do, I'm what you induced me to represent myself -a Dutchman '—Away I hastened from the building, and never beheld his face again until a few years had passed, when he sought my services at C40 a week." Phillips's first engagement in which he distinguished himself, was at Bath—again the year omitted; and there he was fortunately engaged in a few representa- tions of Italian operas, for which arrangements had been made with Signor de Begnis, for which a second bass was required. This was, he says, a great opportunity for him, and raised him immensely in the musical world, in fact, placed him above all the young baritones of the day." Mr. John Loder,—apparently in the same year,—also engaged him for one of his grand concerts, given attheAsiSemblyKoom, Hath, when Mrs Salmon, Miss Stephens, and ftr. Braham were to sing. On that oc- casion, Braham listened unknown to the youthful aspi- rant, to his efforts, and at the close complimented him, saying, "if he were industrious he would be sure to rise." At the same time taking him aside, he imparted to him in the kindest manner, the theory and secret of musical declamation: "which," adds Mr. Phillips, I need scarcely say, I never forgot." Soon after, he was engaged as one of the principal singers in the Messiah," performed at the opening of a new church at Clifton Sir George Smart was the conductor, and he was very reluctant to engage a young man as principal bass." However, after hearing him in private, he consented— Baying: he bad been much pleased and surprised, and would be his [Phillips's] friend, as long as he lived." This he has been; and the Recollections are dedicat- ed to the worthy veteran. The vocalist's career, however, was far from plain sailing. His voice was not fully formed, he was ner- vous, and sometimes forgot himself. He had also to en- counter opposition, as Braham had forewarned him. In London,—again no date-he won laurels in Sir John Stephenson's oratorio of the Thanksgiving," which led to an offer of an engagement from Charles Kemble, at Covent Garden, to play A rtabanes, with Miss Paton, Madame Vestris, and Mr. Braham. He accepted it: his weak voice, and his nervousness were prejudicial; he was hooted, hissed, and groaned at, in'his first song; and the next morning, in the placards of the newspapers was this dreadful announcement:—' Mr. H. Phillips's total failure at Covent Garden, last night. However, he fulfilled his engagement, and soon after made a hit, in the Drinking Song in the Der Freyschutz," at the Lyceum though in that Opera, he was hissed at first. He ultiruately made thesoug, however, "one of the great features of the Opera, being nightly and enthusiastically encored." His engagement, a year or two after, at the Ancient Concerts," at ten guineas a night, was the crowning point of his career. My position was now," he writes, (with health) firm as a rock; all my thanks and gratitude are due to Sir George Smart; for had I lacked the sound judgment of his wine experience, I should, probably, never have risen, as, by his aid, I did." A few years after this period, Mr. Phillips's fame de- clined; and although he always maintained a fair posi- tion, he failed to hold the first. He was induced to make a musical tour to the United States and Canada; which though successful in some towns, was, on the whole a failure. After his return to England, with that excellent English musician, J. W. Hobbs, he sang for several years at the feasts and festivals of the London companies, and with Mr. Land, Hobbs, Francis, Lockey, Mrs. Endershon and Miss Martha Williams, formed the "English Glee and Madrigal Union," which only continued through two or three seasons. His voice failing, he gave up public singing; and closed his ca- reer as a vocalist, at a farewell concert, given at St. James's Hall, London, on the 25th of July, 1868; at which his musical brethren and sistersrallied round him with more than ordinary kindness. At this concert, he tells us, he first introduced his daughters Florence and Alice,—the only allusion we have to his family. The former has retired from the profession; the latter has a pure and extraordinary contralto voice; and lie hopes she will preserve his name in the annals of the musical world. Mr. Phillips teaches the art in which he once so much excelled, residing at Birmingham, and travelling weekly between that town and the metropolis, to attend to his pupils at both places. He closes his Recollec- tions," with a slight tribute to some of those brother and sister artistes he has known in his career; and we close our notice of his volumes, with what he says of the legi- timate heir to Braham's gl irious throne—the present inimitable tenor, Sims Reeves." He is, says Mr. Phillips, An artist, who has seen much of the vicissitudes of his profession, much of its difficulties and annoyances, strugglesand disappointments but who, having heroically suffered them all, now stands the greatest tenor of the day. In criticising the merits of a vocalist, nothing is to me more unfair or invidious than comparisons with others; let each artist rest upon his own merits, and not be condemned because he has possibly not the power or the liking to execute some one particular piece of music as well, as grandly, or as clearly as his predecessor. That Mr. Reeves is far superior in many things, to those who have gone before him, I have no hesitation in say- ing. I would merely instance two things, which I have heard Mr. Reeves sing, far Buperior'in tone, style, and declamation to any one who has preceded him in my time,—viz.; 'Waft her, angels, to the skies,' and How vain is man.' Mr. Sims Reeves is a great artist; but in expressing my humble opinion of one man, it must not, for a moment be thought, that I am condemning others. We have many tenors, and as many peculiar qualities in each, some having a gift for one style of song, others for another, and all in their way exceedingly effective."

I FASHIONS FOR JULY. I Rarely has greater taste been displayed than in the manufacture of the organdie muslins, mousselines de soie, Pompadour silks, and foulards, now so much worn. The last-named material seems as if it would never be out of favour we see it at alt times and seasons, but the plain ones, which were so much in fashion a few months ago, are now replaced by the most elegant and luxuriant designs. Some are entirely covered with pat- terns, lattice-work, leaves, and flowers; others only spotted, or with hair stripes; while those intended for more full dress, and for married ladies, have only one pattern in each breadth—a large bunch of flowers and ribbons decreasing in width towards the waist. With these dresses are worn silk sashes of the same colour as the foundation of the dress, and embroidered or printed to match the nattern on the skirt. Muslin dresses are generally of the same patterns as the foulards, but are covered with some very small pat- tern checks, spots or stripes. Moires or thick taffetis have disappeared, but we trust will return in the autumn. For less dressy wear, the popelines, Llamas, and poils de chere or mohair, are much in favour—in fact, anything of the Llama kind is in the ascendant. Llama or yac lace seems quite to have taken its stand on an equality with the other more expensive and less durable laces. Pique dresses are much worn with mantlss of the same, and are mostly with pretty designs in black wool- len braid for the convenience of washing, and with pois of crochet in black in.grain cotton. Many morning-dresses of piqud and similar materials are trimmed with tatting, and rather coarse cotton, or white braiding and crochet. This crochet trimming is not like the edgings that used to be worn, but is formed of ovals and circles, so made as to imitate passemen- terie. g White dresses are much worn, in all suitable ma- terials. Jf of muslin, they are generally trimmed with in-grain coloured muslin in flounces or plaitings; the dress can then be washed without removing the trim- ming. These garnitures are generally accompanied by black lace insertion, which need be only slightly tacked on as it is of course necessary to remove them when the dress is washed. Narrow black velvets are still a very fashionable trim- miug, especially for young ladies. 1 The Llama or mohair dresses printed ill imitation of braiding have become very common. This style is still in favour for petticoats for morning wear. The coloured petticoats aro extremely handsome, and very richly trimmed. The most of these are of White alpaca, trimmed to correspond with the dress with which they* are intended to be?m. In many ?M thh petticoat, if meant to accompany an ??en skirt, is ve? handsomely trimmed on the fr"ut brdt MMV dresses are made in this way for i.?ndoor o^r ca^r riage wear. The underskirt just touches the ground. Muslin or thin dresses are worn over coloure(I tarla- tanes. This has a very pretty and aerial effect, and is infinitely more economical than silk slips. The bodIes of these thin dresses are made high or low; if the former, with a low lining. Plain on the shoulders, and slightly fulled at the waist. The neck is cut with a very small square; in this is a lace drawn to the throat by narrow black velvet When these bodies are made low, tuey are accompanied by a pelerine of the same, square, or crossed in front with long ends, fastened behind. Many thin dresses have a pattern printed on them, to imitate revers, ribbons, sashes, &e. In this case, the dress requires no other trimming than the ornament thus simulated. White bodies are very much worn, and with them corselets of silk, or the same material as the skirt, when this is practicable. The Garibaldi bodies, hanging loose over the skirt, have entirely disappeared from the world of fashion. They are now made without any running or band at the waist, so that they can be arranged to fit the wearur, and the skirt is placed over them. Ruches—decidedly the most elegant trimming ever introduced- are as much in favour as ever. They are generally pinked or frayed at the edges, and made very f ull. Bugles, whether white or black, are exceedingly fashionable. They are, of course, only suitable to rather dressy toilettes. Sewn in patterns on strips of net, they make a very handsome iusertion. Bugle fringe are much used on silk dresses, mantles, or bonnets. If made in white, they form a very elegant ornament for ball dresses, as heading to lace flounces or tulle ruchiug. Shawls do not seem quite so much in favour for dress wear as formerly. In their place we see the silk half- fitting mantle with lace flounces, or the camail of lace. Nevertheless, many lace shawls are worn by ladies of unquestioned taste—in fact, so graceful and becoming is this form of covering that we dOllb1 its ever being quite superseded. The silk paletdta intended for toilettes de visite are made with three seams down the back, nearly fitting to the ligure, and with a deep flounce of lace, headed by drop buttons or bugle tjiinaiing. The sleeves are wide at the elbow, and small at the wrist. They have revers and dpatilettes of passementerie. Morning dresses are generally made with a mantle of the same, either paletot or circular cape. We have seen some of the former made without sleeves, so as to allow the sleeves of the body to pass through the armhole, and so serve a double purpose. Though we mention this make, we caunot say we admire it, as it gives a stingy and rather untidy appearance. China crape shawls, of a light maize coiour, embroi- dered in black, and surrounded with deep guipure trim- mings, have made a great sensation this season. Bonnets have materially altered in shape, dress bon- nets being made with a small puffing of tulle in lieu oi the curtain. The hair is worn below this, and a flower or bow of tulle placed at the edge of the bonnet so as to fall on the hair These bonnets are very narrow at the sides, showing much of the face, and are not so high as those worn lately. (n fact, the fete bonnets look more like caps than anything else. These are only intended for dejeuners, wedding, or morning concerts. Those for walking wear are very much less pretentious, and more like those we have been wearing lately. Hats now worn are much the same shape as those seen last month. The most dressy ones are rather high in the brim and narrow at tha sides, slightly drooping back and front. These are trimmed with flowers, fruit, or feathers. If made of rice straw or crinoline, they are lined with silk of the same colour as the ornaments. Sometimes the feathers or trimmings are placed slightly drooping over the front. The fashion of wearing glass ornaments in the hats is, we are happy to say. rapidly disappearing. It never met with our approbation, though we have mentioned it among other novelties. Bonnets or hats are seldom seen now unaccompanied by the small veil called "loup." This is generally edged with chenille or bugle fringle. Above this is placed an insertion, through which is run a zero black velvet to draw the veil round the face, if required. These veils are made of tulle, plain or spotted.
TALHAIARN ANNUITY FUND. The London Committee of the above fund met at the London Tavern, on Thursday, the 23rd ultimo, Howell Morgan, Esq., High Sheriff of Merioneth, in the chair. After the preliminary business of the evening, the Chairman called upon the Treasurer for a statement of the amount of the fund. William Jones, Esq. (Gwrgant), read a statement pre- pared by the honorary secretary, from which it appeared that the amount of jC375 2s. 6d. was promised, and partly paid, subject to deductions for incidental expenses. This sum, when the subject was duly considered, was but small; and he had anticipated greater success; itf- deed, he would not give in until they had collected £ 500. His first letter was written on the 23rd of Octo- ber last year, and he could never forget the noble res- ponse which followed. In running his eye down the list, he felt proud of his country, and its nobility, for the appreciation of a National Poet, and an excellent man pervaded the country from the highest to the low- est. What he wanted to see now were the contributions of the bulk-the mass; where was Liverpool ? where Manchester ? where Birmingham ? where every large town in the kingdom, where IV elshmeu reshled, and loved a national, loyal, and patriotic poet-for Talhaiarn was eminently so. An earnest appeal to the country, he had no doubt, would speedily accomplish all they wished, and Talhaiarn might soon rejoice in the posses- sion of a substantial token of the love and affection of his countrymen, including the noblest and the best of them. (Cheers.) For his own part, he regretted his pro- fessional engagements were such that he could not de- vote much time to the work and he knew that his friend Cadvan had his hands full in his responsible posi- tion. Considering all these things, they had done tolera- bly well; but he trusted the committee would go with him for X500, and no surrender. (Cheers.) Brinley Richards, Esq., congratulated the committee upon the result of their labours, and heartily endorsed the Treasurer's suggestion of holding on for £500. They must not take less. There was plenty of ground to work in. Only 150 subscriberA.1 he was surprised. Better open a shilling subscriptron than give in now. Griffith Jarrett, Esq., said he was quite ready to take any portion of the labours, rather than anything less than £ 500 be realized; for he felt every confidence that it could be accomplished, and that very shortly. Thomas Hamer, Esq., would invite the co-operation of country friends, and form local committees in the chief towns through the country. He felt confident the people only wanted an opportunity to record their love for Talhaiarn. Mr. Hugh Williams [Cadvan] felt much gratified at the unanimity of the committee, and was confident the views of their excellent treasurer would be carried out in their integrity. £500 was not a large sum. The 150 bad done nobly let 1,500 give only a shilling each, and the work was done. He would suggest an immediate appeal to the country, and a request that all 8U b. scriptions be paid in; so that, before next October, they might congratulate themselves upon having accomplished a good year's work. The Chairman, in conclusion, expressed the gratifica- tion he had experienced at that meeting. Although not a resident in London, they had honoured him by placing him in the chair, and he confessed that his heart waa in the work as deep as any of theirs. He had no doubt they would soon have to meet at the "Presenta- tion." [Cheers.] A vote of thanks to the Chairman concluded the I proceedings.
UYFON SOLDIERS POISONED IN VIRGINIA BY A RBP.KC. WO.UAS.—Private S. N. Ellsworth, of Company K, 1st New Jersey Volunteers, furnishes the following item to a newspaper correspondent with the army of General Meade, in Virginia. The charge of poisoning our men has heretofore been made against women in the rebel States. This case is substantiated by the essential par- ticulars of names, date, and place:—On Thursday, the 29th May, at a farm house near the Pamunky river, in Virginia, seven soldiers belonging to the 1st New Jersey Volunteer partook of some hot mince pie offered them by an old woman who pretended to be very friendly. She profeBsd. to be a pious woman, a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Shortly after eating the pie, the men were seized with the symptoms attendant upon poisoning by arsenic. The stomach pump was ap- plied by Dr. Mott, of the 1st New Jersey Volunteers, and Dr. Hendricks, of the 2nd New Jersey Volunteers. The contents of the stomachs were analysed, and in all of them arsenic was found. The men had been over- dosed. None are dead, but all are disabled for duty up to the present time. Ellsworth was one of the poisoned men.—New York Tribune. PHOTOGRAPHIC LITV.RATURE.-It will be seen, by re- ference to our advertising columns, that THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTGRAPHY will in future be published at 2, York Street, Covent Garden, London, W.C., and will also be published Weekly instead of semi-monthly' M heretofore. This Journal is now in the eleventh year of its existence—a fact which, it may be presumed, shows the large amount of public favour that has attended its progress. In the larger sphere of usefulness which will be ensured by its publication in its weekly form in the Me- tropolis, even a larger amount of success than has hither- to been attained by this old-established organ of photo- graphic art-science may reasonably be looked for.
I piswJtatteflttiS. During last week 17 wrecks were reported, making a total of 897 for the present year. The strike of the edge-tool forgers of Sheffield, which haa extended over five weeks,' has been brought to a termination by the unconditional submission of the men. The act fixing the duties on fire insurances of stock-in-trade and utensils at Is. 6d. per 4100, instead of 3s. as previously, came into operation on Saturday last. A woman at Clay Cross recently set fire to her bus. band's clothing because he had gone home drunk. He was so seriously burnt that she was taken in custody and remanded. Mr. Hall, chief magistrate at Bow-street, London has retired after 25 years' service. Mr. Henry, second ma. gistrate at the court, will be appointed to Mr. Hall's place, and Mr. F. Flowers, recorder of Stanford, win succeed Mr. Henry. In a damp old church in one of the South Lancashire towns a number of toads were found living under the organ. No wonder that one of the native congregation remarked that they sang "T'oud 'undert" (toad under it) nearly every Sunday. A story is told in Baltimore by a gentleman who was recently in Richmond that the Southern Presidaut was asked in his presence how soon he thought the war would end. Placing his hand upon the head of a little boy, not five years of age, Mr. Davis replied, Not till this child is an old man." The Boston Post says that Miss Belle Boyd, the fa- mous rebel spy, captured on board the British steamer Greyhound, of Wilmington, North Carolina, is now in Boston. During the attack upon the Greyhound, Miss I Boyd came on deck, took a seat on a bale of cotton, and quietly sat fanning herself and watching the explosion of the shells. A letter from Cayenne states that the famous Giraud of Gatebourse, whose talent in counterfeiting Bank of France notes was so notorious, escaped on the 8th Sept. last from that settlement, where he was undergoing the punishment of hard labour for life. A Highlander named Hugh Main, formerly a look- keeper on the Aberdeeh and Inverury Canal, died at Aberdeen on Tuesday, at the age of 103 years. He re- tained all his faculties unimpaired to the last, and was walking about within a few days of his death.—Win- burgh Courant. A widow, occupying a large house in a fashionable quarter of London, sent for a wealthy solicitor t" make her will, by which she disposed of between £ 50.000 and 4:60,000. He proposed soon after, was accepted and found himself the happy husband of a penniless ad- ventures. The Lord Chancellor has appointed Mr. Owen Davies Tudor, of the Middle Temple, barrister-at law, to Le a registrar of the Court of Bankruptcy for the Birmingham district, in the room of Mr. Charles U' aterfield, who, after upwards of 20 years' service, has been allowed to retire on account of permanent infirmity. A large block of buildings four stories in height, and occupied partly by Messrs. Scott and Whiltoker raj; and paper merchants, and partly by Mr. W Rhodes, white- smith and bellhanger [to whom they belonged], in Wade- street, Bradford, was burnt down early on Saturday morning. At a low computatien the entire loss of pro- perty cannot be less than £ 8,000. Lady Gertrude Douglas, daughter of the Marchioness of Queensbury, has taken the. white veil, and ii now at the convent at Hammersmith. At the ceremony, which took place a few days ago, the young unn appeared in a bridal dress of white satin, with a bouquet in her hand. After a time she retired, and appeared in a dress of white serge, having renounced the vanities of the world. Court Journal. On Saturday week a girl from the neighbourhood o £ Thurso was brought to Wick in custody, on the charge of having forged and uttered a bill for ;C70 at one of the banks iu Tliut*. The girl is not yet far thrush her teens, and it is expected she has had one or more accom- plices. Meanwhile she has been fully committed on the charge. She also attempted to pass a forged bill for XIUO on another bank in Thurso.—John O'Groat Journal. The King of Prussia lately sent a silver trumpet to Prince Frederic Charles, recommending him to make a present of it to the regiment which displayed the great- est bravery in the assault on Duppel. In an harangue made by the Jirince to the 35th regiment of the line, he declared that all the regiments had valiantly distin- guished themselves, but that the 35th was the bravest of the brave, and consequently the trumpet of honour belonged to it by right. DIVORCE CASE.—The case of Horsfall v. Horstall was heard in the Divorce Court, London, on Saturday last. The marriage took place at Harrogate, in 1850. The husband soon afterwards obtained a situation in ) merchant's ofifce, at Liverpool. In October, 1852, he deserted his wife, and she was obliged to return to her family at Carlisle, and has since lived with them. The husband, who is an idle, drunken man, has been living at Bradford with another woman, by whom he has had children. He has, from time to time, visited Carlisle, and endeavoured to obtain money from the petitioner, and also to obtain possession of the only child of the marriage, who was born shortly after the se- paration.—Decree nisi granted with costs, and the custody of the child given to the petitioner until further order. OUTRAGE BY BRICKMAKERS.- Early on Saturday morning last, a party of brickmakers visited Mr. A. Ashworth's brickcroft, situated behind the Infantry Barracks, in Regent-road, and destroyed about SO,000 bricks. The bricks were wet from the mould, and were on the drying floors. Then were seen by a man who is in the habit of sleeping near the kilns, aud who can identify two of the parties. The men drew stockirgs over their clogs, so as to prevent their footprints being recognised, and then walked up and down the drying floors, stamping upon and destroying all the bricks. The bricks being in an unfinished state, the damage caused is comparatively trifling, only amcuntinR to about £50. What makes the outrage more estrawi- nary is that Mr. Ashworth employs a large number ot men connected with the union, and is also an employer generally respected by his workmen. MwAatir Guardian. DANGEROUS CONDITION OF HEENAN.—Among the most serious sufferers from the recent railway accident at Egham is John C. Heenan, the Benecia Bov.
