THE APPLICATION FOR EXTRADITION. I (From the New Yorlc Herald of Åug/Ut 27th.) I The hearing in the extradition case of Franz Muller, charged with the murder of Mr. Thomas Briggs, in a first-class railroad car, near London, on the 9th of July last, was resumed at eleven o'clock yesterday, in the United States District Court-room, before Mr. Com- missioner Newton. The crowded condition of the court-room evinced the great interest manifested in the case. Mr. Beebe, who had been assigned as counsel for the accused, not being present, there was some delay in commencing the proceedings. Mr. Edwin Blaukman, after a brief consultation wieh the prisoner, stated to the commissioner that the accused expected his sister in court, and would then make some arrangement as to counsel. The Commissioner (to the accused)—Is your sister here ? The Accused (standing up, holding a blue cotton hankerchief in one of his hands, and speaking with a slightly foreign accent)—I am expecting her, air. The- Commissioner—Has your sister any friends here ? The Accused—I do not know, air; she came to the country by herself. The Commissioner-Well, I will assign Mr. Sh tfrer and Mr. Blankman as counsel, if there be no ob- jection. Both these gentleman being in court, they accepted the charge, and took their seats at the table where the prisoner was seated. He is of small stature and slightly built. He wore a dark tweed shQoting jacket, a dark vest buttoned high up, and a white necktie, and has somewhat of the appearance of an English hostler. His eyes are small, and so deeply set that at a few yards' distance from him one can see only the shadow of the brows. The face is a narrow oval, and has neither wiikers nor moustache. The hair is quite light, and is carefully combed. There is nothing about his appear- ance indicating any murderous propensity; on the con- trary, he would pass anywhere for 1\ quiet, inoffensive person. He keeps his lips closely compressed, and be. trays no sign of emotion. On the other side of the table, beside Mr. Marbury, counsel for the British Government, sat Mr. Tanner, the inspector of detective police at London-a gentlemanly, open-faced, intelligent-looking man. Mr. Kerressey, local inspector of the metropolitan police, was also present, together with several others of the English wit- nesses ° After some little delay, to permit counsel to confer with their client, Mr. Marbury stated the circumstances under which he asked for a warrant of extradition against the accused. By the terms of the treaty between the United States and Great Britain of August 9th, 1842, it is provided that persons fleeing from justice from the one country, and being found in the other, charged with certain euumerated crimes, may be de- manded and shall be delivered up on the production of such proof as would justify the commitment of the offender for trial in the place where apprehended. Un- der this treaty, and the laws passed for carrying it into effect, a requisition was now asked that Franz Muller, the prisoner at the bar, who is charged with having murdered Thomas Briggs, in the county of Middlesex, on the evening of July 9th, 1864, be surrendered for trial. Counsel briefly recapitulated the circumstances of the murder, which need not be here repeated, and he proposed to read the depositions of the witnesses taken in the case in London, before Mr. Henry. one of the po- lice magistrates, and which were authenticated by the certificate of Mr. Adams, United States Minister to the Court of St. James. Mr. Shaffer-Are the persons who made these deposi- tions to be cross-examined here ? Mr. Marbury-No, air. Mr. Shaffer understood the rule to be that in criminal proceedings no ex parte affidavits are admitted. Mr. Marbury cited the Act of Congress providing that depositions, warrants, or other papers, or copies thereof, shall be received in extradition cases, if properly and legally authenticated, and making the certificate of the principal diplomat., or consular officer of the United States resident in the country where the offence was committed proof that the papers are properly authen- ticated. The Commissioner decided that the depositions in the case, certified by the American Minister, were competent evidence The depositions were then affered and received in evidence. Richard Tanner was then examined by Mr. Marbury, and testified as followsI am inspector of the detective force, metropolitan police, London. My attention was first called to the case on the 10th of July. I was di- rected by Sir Richard Mayne, Commissioner of Police, to undertake the inquiry. I went to Bow, and put my- self in communication with the local police. I received there a hat from Inspector Kerressey. I have since kept it uader lock and key it is now in London, in the box, in the strong room; it is an ordinary black hat, bent and broken; it has the name of T. H. Walker, 42, Crawford-street, London, as the maker. I exhibi- ted it to Mr. Matthews, who is here present. 1 was present at the taking of the depositions before the ma- gistrate, Mr Henry, on the 19th of July. I saw him swear the witnesses, and saw them sign the depositions; Mr. Hjnry certified them after they were put together; he is the chief magistrate, and has been, to my know. ledge, for 10 or 12 years; I have been connected with the metropolitan police force for 14 years; I rose from the ranks to my present position; we have all to do that. I have been in the habit of seeing preliminary de- positions in cases of crime in England on which warrants are issued the depositions in this case are in the usual form. I received the depositions of the 19th of July from the hands of Mr. Henry, the magistrate; they are original depositions; I got them certified by Mr. Adams, the American Minister. I produced the hat before Mr. Henry on the 19th rf-fcily. when these (leposit?ons ?re taken I produce-!? th. witness Ames; it was in reference to it that A ?testined; I showed it also to the cabman, Matthews. I produce" pawn ticket here; I got it from the witness Haffa on the afternoon of the 18th of July; it is the same ticket to which Haffa refers in his deposition. There were also pro- duced on the examination a walking stick and black bag which had belonged to Mr. Briggs, and the card box spoken of by Mr. Death, the jeweller. leaned the compartment of the railroad car, and observed the cushions covered with blood. I was present at the coroner's inquest, and saw there the body of Mr. Briggs. The paper I now (produce is a proclamation offering f 300 reward for the apprehension of the murderer; it was issued by me on the 16th of July in London. I got a description of Mr. Briggs' watch from the watch- maker at Hackney, who had cleaned it not long before, I was referred to him by Mr. Briggs' son. (It is des- cribed as a large old-fashioned gold lever watch, open j face, with the number and maker's name.) Counsel for accused objected to heamy evidence as to the description of the watch. Objection sus- tained. Cross-examined by Mr. Shaffer-I was not acquainted with Mr. Briggs in his lifetime. I had never seen him till I saw the body at the inquest. I do not know, of my own knowledge, that it wat3 the body of r. BriggL I applied no test to determine whether the stains on the hat were stains of blood. I do not know how many per- sons occupied the compartment of the car in which Mr. Briggs had a seat. Frum Bow to Hackney Wick is about three miles. I know nothiug of the appointment of Mr. Henry, the magistrate. Walter Kerressey, examined by Mr. Marbury.-I am inspector of K division of the metropolitan police sta- tioned at Bow. My attention was first called to this case on the morning of Sunday, July 10. I saw Mr. Briggs both before and after his death. I sent a con- stable to the Camden-town station for the hat, and re- ceived it from him. I have been connected with the metropolitan police of London over 14 years. I know, Mr. Henry, the chief magistrate at Bow-street, about twelve years. I was present when all these depositions were taken before him at Bow-street, on the 22nd of July. The witnesses were sworn by Mr. Henry, and signed them before him. This is Mr. Henry's certificate. I received the original depositions from his hands, and I brought them with me to this country. There was a hat produced before Mr. Henry on the 22nd of July. It was the same that I got from the constable. I gave it to inspector Tanner. I remember the de- portion of Mr. Ames, one of the railroad guards. The hat was exhibited to him, and he testified to its being the same that he found in the railway carriage. I also showed the hat to Elizabeth Repsch, and it is the one to which she refers in her deposition. I also produced a gold chain. I produce it now; also the hook belong- ing to the chain and a small ring. I received the chain from Mr. John Death. The hook I saw taken off the deceased by his son; the small ring I received from Mr. Brereton, the surgeon it is the one to which he testifies in his depositions; the chain is the one to which the witnesses Mr. Thomas J ames isnggs, Air. bucuan, and Mr. Robert Death, referred to. There was a new chain presented to Elizabeth Repsch on her examination. It was produced by Young, the pawnbroker's clerk. It was in reference to it that she and Haffa and Uobart Death testified. The card box was also exhibited on the 22nd July. Cross-examination by Ir. Shiif"or-Tlie ex,,tminati,)n of the witnesses on the 22nd July occupied about seven hours, I received the depositions from Mr. Henry, and gave them to the Superintendent; I was not present when the American Minister gave his certificate the papers were returned to me by th" Superintendent; I am not acquainted with the signature of Mr. Adams. Mr. Marbury supposed that Mr. Adams' signature could be proved by Mr. Shatter himself, as he had been (Mr. S.'s) candidate for the vice-presidency. Mr. Shaffer.-Yes; but I never helped to hang a client of mine if I could help it. The commissioner ruled that the certificate of the United States Minister, under the seal of the legation, should be received in evidence. Mr. John Death, examined by Mr. Marbury. —I re- aide at 55, Cheapside, London. I am a silversmith and jeweller, and have been in that busihess 32 years. The chain now handed to me I purchased on the morning of the 11th of July from the prisoner (here Muller stood up to be identified). I was called into the shop by my brother, and this chain was handed to me by him for me to value. I put it in the scales to weigh it. The prisoner looked to see me do it. I told him I would give him t3 10s. for it. He looked at another chain which was priced £3 15s., but he declined to pay the difference. I then showed him a chain at £ 3 os., which he agreed to take. I then asked him what he would take for the 5s., and he said a finger ring. I showed him one at the price having a white coruelia stone with a head engraved upon it. He fitted it on his finger and kept it. My brother handed m^ a paper box on which was a label having my name and address, into which I packed the chain I had sold, and made a parcel of it and delivered it to the prisoner. He then left the shop. •I again saw that box on the following Monday night. It was shown to me by Inspector Tanner. I identified the box as being the one that I had picked the chain in; that is the same box that I saw at the magistrate's erftce in Bow-street on the 19th; the prisoner was in my shop about ten minutes. Q. Have you any doubts at to the prisoner's identity ? A. Not the least. Q. When did you next see him? A. Yesterday morning, on board the Victoria I was requested to go into the cabin where the prisoner stood among a number of otlie)-s- eight or nine-all of them strangers to me after looking at them all I told Inspector Tanner that the second was the man. Q. Do you feel any doubt whatever about his identity. A. No; not the least whatever. Cross-examined by Mr. Blankman.—I do a pretty large business. I had never seen this man before he produced the chain. There was no special mark a bout him by which to identify him, except nis neignt auci the general appearance of the man. I am not able to say whether he had whiskers or not, but he had no mus- tache or beard. I should say he was under the middle height. I should not call him a thickset man, but rather siight. Mr. Blankman called attention to the testimony of Mr. Lee, who spoke as to the persons in the same car with deceased. One of them he described as tall and thin, and the other as a thicktset man. Cross-examination continued.—At the time I pur- chased the chain I had not read of the murder; soon afterwards my attention was called to it, and I was struck with the fact that the chain I had purchased lacked the hooks, and I immediately wrote to Inspector Kerressey informing him of the circumstance. The description given in the proclamation is made up from that which I and my brother gave of the man from whom I had bought the chain I never saw the same pattern of chaiu before it has a certain peculiarity by pattern of chain before ir which once seen I would recollect it again; a chain somewhat like it is called the Clyde chain. I would not call this an Albert curb chain this is a swivel seal; the description of this seal given in the proclamation does not properly describe the chain. Jonathan Mathews, examined by Mr. Marbury —I am a cabman, living in London. I know Franz Muller, the prisoner, perfectly well. I have known him about two years. He has been in the habit of visiting me frequently, as often as twice or thrice a month. He has been working as a tailor. I bought a hat for him. He had come to dine with me one Sunday, and he saw me with a hat which he liked. He tried whether it would fit him, and found it was a little too tight for him. I said, If I get you one made a little easier than that, will it fit yon ?" He said, Very nicely." I did according to his wishes, and had it home the Saturday following. It was made by a man named Walker, in Crawford street. He were it up to within there weeks of my last seeing him. I have since seen that hat. I saw it at the detective oiffce, Scotland-yard, London. I described it to the inspector before he showed it to me. I had remarked it three weeks before, and told Muller it was getting shabby. He said he would wear it a while longer. The jeweller's card box I saw at my house on Tuesday morning. He had given it to my little girl to play with. I thought nothiug of it till I saw the hand- bill. It had the name aud address of Mr. Death, the jeweller, on it. I had never got anything from Mr. Death. Cross-examined by NI r. Shaffer.-This hat was exactly like mine, except that this was easier. I should not think there were any similar hats in the store, as I get my hats made to order, and this one was-made to order; it was some two or three weeks before Christmas. Q. Did you have your head measured for the hat? A. No; they do not measure heads; they measure hats. (Laughter). I always found the accused to he a very steady, industrious, honest man, regular in his habits. I should not have hesitated, on oath, to give him a good character. George Clark, examined by Mr. Marbury.—Am sergeant of the London detective force. I boarded the Victoria the other day, in company with a New York officer, John Tiuraann Tiematiu told the prisoner that he was charged with the murder of Mr. Briggs, in Lon- don. I followed by saying, On the London and North-western railway, on the 9th, between Bow and Hackneywich." He said, I was not there; r never was on the line." The officer searched him, and took a key from his waistcoat pocket. This is the key. The prisoner said it was the key of his box. I afterwards fetched the box into the cabin, where the prisoner was standing. He told me it was his. I unlocked it, and among other things I found a gold watch and a hat. This is the watch and hat. Mr. Marbury called attention to the fact the watch produced was an old-fashioned watch, made at Hackney; and the evidence in the case showed that the watch of the deceased was an old-fashioned one, and that he lived at Hackney. Jonathan Mathews was recalled by Mr. Shaffer, and the hat found upon the prisoner, supposed to have be- longed to the murdered man, was then tried upon him and found an eisy fit. John C. Tieman, examined by Mr. Marbury —Am connected with the detective force in this city. I made the arrest of the prisoner, having been deputed by the United States -Marshal. I took out of the prisoner's pocket the key of his box, and was present when the box was searched. Cross-examined.—The prisoner said he had had the hat about a year, and the watch for two years. This closed the case on the part of the British Govern- ment, and the further hearing was adjourned till Satur- day morning at eleven o'clock.

RAILWAY EXCURSION PROM BANGOR TO RUTHIN -On Monday last, the Horeb Wesleyan Sunday School, and the other schools within the Bangor circuit, had an ex- cursion trip to the town of Ruthin, in the far-famed Vale of Clwvd. There were between 600 and 700, in- cluding children and adults, in the train, and a very pleasant little out the little people had, there not being a single mishap to anyone during the whole day. The affair was got up and managed by Mr. Henry Jones, High-street, superintendent of Horeb Sunday School, to whom much credit is due. CONCERT IN THE PENBHYN HALL.-Oti Wednesday evening a miscellaneous concert of a somewhat extraor- dinary character was given in the Penrhyn Hall, as a wind up to the day's proceedings, and in support of the funds of the Bangor Choral Association. It was almost an impromptu affair j nevertheless, some first class ar- tistes were got together, who kindly rendered their ser- vices quite gratuitously. Giving the ladies precedence, as of course we ought to do, we may say that. Miss Edith Wynne ting four songs, which really means eiht, the four having been doubled by encores fervent and irresistible. Not more so, however, than they de- served in every piece she shewed the perfect artist. Independently of possessing a voice of purest soprano quality, she exercises it with consummate skill, spiced with considerable dramatic feeling, so that very fre- quently she takes her audience by storm, hence the continually repeated encores. Miss Jane Owen, who is pretty well known in this district, sang "Where the bee sucks," with much taste, which, of course, was rede- manded; she also took part in a duet with Owain Alaw, in which she acquitted herself very well. The Rev. C. Jones sang My Pretty Jane" with great taste and was very much applauded. There was another celebrity in the person of Mr. John Thomas (Pencerdd Gwalia), who displayed extraordinary skill in his harp playing, to the great delight of his audience each piece called for a second, a call with which he courteously complied. We had solos by fr. Hulse and Mr. Ma- thews, on the violin and cornet-a-piston respectively, which were both so beautifully played as to call tor repetitions. Mr. Lloyd, who is an amateur stranger amongst us, received a well deserved encore for a flute solo, The Blue Bells of Scotland," with variations by C. Nicholson. Owain Alaw sing the Much of the men of Harlech," "John Brown," and" Lady Gryn- swth," each of which produced immense applause, the latter being uproariously redemanded. The Portdinor- wic choir rendered their services by siuging two cho- ruses, which received a good share of applause. Mr. Owen (Owain Alaw) and Mr. Roberts rendered efficient assistance as accompanists. Few concerts have been heard in Bangor which have afforded greater pleasure; and we are are glad to say that it was very well patronised, the hall being pretty well filled, and the front seats being occupied by many of the aristocracy of the neighbourhood.
I DENBIGH. STREET NAMFi.-Nir. Roberts, the respected poet master of Denbigh, recently drew our attention to a great deficiency existing in the town, the absence of any visible signs to denote the names uf the streets. Den- bigh is an increasing and progressive town, and it can boast of a large number of streets at the present time, and all of them have names—some very curious ones too-but only the old and experienced in- habitants are supposed to have acquired a perfect know- ledge of them, for the simple reason that they are not painted in visible forms, or otherwise made known to the eye of a passer-by. In fact it would require a stranger a month or two's hard application in hia study to recollect them all, and then a much longer time would be essential to become familiar with the exact situation of each street. Now, this state of affairs is nothing less than a public grievance, and we trust that the borough authorities will effect a remedy-may we ouggeat-st their next quarterly meeting, so that our town may once more make a stride in the right direction. POLICE COURT, Friday, September 2nd,—Before A. E. Tumour, Esq., M.D., Mayor. Drunken ness.-David Jones, of Park Lane, was charged with being drunk and disorderly on Saturday last. He was summoned for using throatening language to- wards one Catherine Lewis. Mr. Meredith Williams, who appearod for defendant, applied for an adjournment of the cqpe, which was granted.
CONCERT OF THE BANGOR ORCHESTRAL UNION.—On Tuesday evening a concert of vocal and instrumental music was given in the Peurhyn Hall by a band of ama- teurs who are pursuing the practice of the divine art eon amore, and considering the short time the majority of them have been so engaged their efficiency is some- thing extraordinary. To be sure we have not quite the precision of time nor the correctness of tune that we ex- pect from the London Philharmonic or the Opera bands, but there was enough in the performance of Tuesday evening to satisfy us that with industry and a little care. ful training they will be able to imlertake the higher classes of music and that the Symphonies of Beethoven, Haydeu and Mozart may shortly be entrusted to them for interpretation. The greatest fault we have to find with them is their total inattention to light and shade, so essential to musical effect, and we hope their talented conductor will look to this in future rehearsals. It is a fault to which all young players are liable, but one which usually corrects itself when the taste has become im- proved which is sure to result from the study of classical authors. We have said thus much about the band be- cause it is the most prominentfeature in the constitution of The Onion and it certainly is the one most import- ant to be cultivated. On the occasion to which we are referring they did not venture beyond Quadrilles, Polkas, and Valses, which may all be placed in one category as having been creditably performed. But we have a passing word for the two compositions of Mr. Hulse which were not only lively but pretty, and claiming more originality than one-half of the ten thousand and one perpetrations of that class which have issued from the Press during the last few years. The Violin fantasia Wa played by Mr. Hulse with an extraordinary degree it correctness and delicacy, we certainly could have liked a little more force occasionally. Mr. Matthews's Cornet Solo was one of those almost perfect pieces of difficult execution which one rarely comes accross except from the very highest class of professionals, it was of course lustily encored, a compliment by the way which was equally bestowed upon Mr. Hulse, two instances of the good taste of the audience, but in truth encores on Tuesday night were very questionable compliments, being rather indiscri- minately bestowed. The vocal department was very well sustained by Messrs. Green, Roberts, C. Jones and J. Jones, but in the concerted pieces there was a sort of haze and confusion which we fancy arose from their singing in a recess which is at all times most inimical to musical effects. In Tooles very amusing song A Nor- rible Tale," very few of the words could be distinguished although it was really very well rendered by Mr. Green, in his encore of Polly Perkins, he was more successful, and he quite deserved all the applause he obtained. We shall be glad of another opportunity of hearing the Or- chestral Union and we can only wish that they may go on, and prosper as they deserve. We should observe that the whole of the accompaniments were very ably per- formed by Mr. E. W. Thomas, the Organist of St. Ann's. THE BANOOR MusEum.-We have received the follow- ing from a correspondent—A week or two ago I paid a flying visit to Bangor, and like most other strangers I resolved to see all that was worth seeing, and in the shortest time possible. I "did" the Cathedral, scram- bled up the town hill, and took a good stroll in Upper Baugor, from whence there is a most delightful pros- pect. I then returned to Bangor proper, and being hot and thirsty, I called in at the Vaynol Arms Inn, where I had a capital glass of home-brewed ale, served out to me in a half-pint tot. Happening to look out of the parlour window, I saw just before me, in a sort of gar- den opposite, a large statue of a man, something after the Dr. Johnson's style of cut, and enquired who and what that strange and grotesque figure could be ? when I learned that a large and wonderful museum was there, the private property of Capt. J ones, of the firm of Jones and Hyat, of Liverpool, a native of Bangor, and who, mv informant added, had collected a vast number of ar- ticles of virtu and of great interest from all parts of the globe. I was likewise told that any person was permit- ted to view the museum for a nominal charge, just to pay the expenses of keeping the premises and the curiosities in good order. Now, I thought this most strange, as I had not the slightest notion that there was anything like a "museum" in your city of Bangor, never having heard it mentioned, nor at all alluded to either in guide Books or in the local newspapers. However, as there was a museum, and close by, I decided to visit it, and I can assure your readers that I did not regret doing so. On going up the steps, I saw a respectable-looking lady, who I afterwards discovered, was Captain Joues's sister, and who, it seems, resides there, and looks after the musenm, and who certainly was most civil and obliging. On entering the first room, on the ground floor, I must own to having been quite astonished, at the number, value, and extreme rarity of the collection. Your readers, I presume, will hardly expect me to insert a catalogue of the contents of a museum, for the reason that such a list would fill a newspaper, but I will try to recollect some of the classes of curiosities which are in the one I am alluding to. There are some splendid "gods," chiefly Hindoo and Chinese, most of them brought over by Captain Jones himself, and which are very costly as well as interesting. There is also a variety of Chinese fancy productions, in carved work, &o, many of which are truly wonderful. There is a fine collect- tion of geological specimens, classified and arranged, and gome of the paintings are of high merit. frhere. are also a number of autographs of celebrated iWrsonages, for instance, of Napoleon, and Marshals Soult and Junot, and others, English and Foreign. In another room, adjoining the one you first enter, are a nnmber of stutfed animals, and weapons of war, used bv many ?vage tribes, in the Old world and the New. there Is likewise some of the best carved work which ever I met with in any place whatsoever, and this of itself is well worthy of a visit. Upstairs their is a room entirely occupied by paintings, and further up still, there is a kind ora tower, from which there is a most extended view, seaward, there being a powerful telescope at hand for the use of visitors. I trust your readers will not suppose that in this hasty sketch I have done anything like justice to the museum. The miscellaneous articles are by far too numerous even to be alluded to generally; and my intention is to draw attention to the fact that there is such a thing in Bangor as a museum, and I am truly astonished that is not more generally known. A visit to it would be an agreeable change to the visitors when afflicted with ennui; but I much question if ten persons out of every thousand, who visit Bangor, have ever heard of its existence. Possibly this brief notice will make them acquainted with the fact.
ARREST OF MULLERJTHE ALLEGED I MURDERER OF MR. BRIGGS. The steamship St. Patrick, from Quebec, arrived in the Clyde on Tuesday; On August 28 she called at St. John's, and received the latest telegrams, the most im- portant of-which announces the arrival at New York, on August 24, of the ship Victoria, and the arrest of Franz Muller,fthe German who is accused of having murdered a gentleman named Briggs in a railway carriage in Lon- don. trhe telegram is very meagre, merely announcing the apprehension of Muller and the discovery of the hat and watch of Mr. Briggs in his possession, and stating that the legal proceedings in reference to the extradition of the prisoner were progressing. It will be remembered, probably, that the murderer of Mr. Briggs left his hat in the carriage where the dreadful crime was committed, and took away that of the murdered gentleman. The watch and chain were also stolen by the assassin. In the preliminary stages of the investigation which followed it was satisfactorily shown, first, the hat found in the railway carriage was Muller's; and, Becond, that the chain stolen from Mr, Briggs had been sold by a foreigner whose personal de- scription precisely corresponded with that of Muller. Conclusive as this evidence WM. it has been rendered still more telling by the discovery of the hat and watch of the murdered gentleman in the possession of Muller in New York; and though, when arrested, the accused protested that he was innocent, the case now established against him is so strong that it is difficult to see how it can be successfully controverted. It has been insinuated that the New York authorities are not likely to exert themselves to ensure the trans- mission of Muller to England for trial. There is not the least pretence for any such insinuation, as in all cases of a similar character the American authorities, and particularly those of New York, have invariably extend- ed most willing aid for the capture aud detention of culprits escaping from England to the United States. Besides, the terms of the extradition treaty of 1842 are so explicit that the American authorities would find it difficult to evade their part of the engagement, even if they were inclined to do so. The treaty provides that upan mutual requisition any person should be delivered up to justice "who being charged with the crime of mnrder, or piracy, or arson, or robbery, or forgery, or the utterance of forged paper, committed within the juris- diction of either of the high contracting parties, should seek an asylum or should be found within the territories of the other provided that this should only be done upon such evidence of criminality as according to the laws of the place where the fugative or person so charged should be found would justify his apprehension and commitment for trial if the crime or offence had been there committed."
I The Ta-Pang-Nyo, a screw steamer of 527 tons (bur- I then, commanded by Captain Crindle, has made the passage from England to Bombay in 51 day. and 4 hours, being the quickest passage on record. The vessel belongs to an English firm in Chiua.
I THE LIGHT OF LLWYNON. Look on me "el!- I am thy Light thy Lon. Gn&rdami ben—ben Son y beD Son! ?T Dsvina Commedia. On the brow of the mountain a beacon is building, From danger the seamen to save. To guide vessels homeward along the dark ocean, Unharmed by the reef or the wave; But others may speak of that structure anon, I shall write of the Light of high Uwynon— The pure radiant Light of fair Uwynon. Over dark Penmaenmawr sweeps the mist and the shower, And the heavy clouds lower in the Bay. The sky is o'ercast, and loud whistles the blast, But there soon will be sunlight they say; I will not tell now of the warm sun that shone, But indite of the sweet Light of fair Llwynon The clear steady Light of high Llwynon 1 By the fierce north wind sped, round the bold craggy Head, The foam spray comes dashing so free, Clad in wild white gleams, 'neath the cold moon beams, With a moan of the wintry sea And ob ) lovelier far to linger upon, Is the bright gentle Light of calm Llwynon 1 The mild peaceful Light of fair Llwynon I From the green hill's slope, 'neath the stormy cope Of the desolate rude rock higher, An English chalea abjve the wide valley Looks over mere mountain and brier And she. pacing its turfy Barbiton On the height, is the Light of fair Llwynon I The innocent life Light of far Llwynon I Her steps are swift by the light ioa drift On the yellow sands of the shore, She loves the rocks, the lone hill, and flocb, But her peaceful home still more; And the sweetest charm of the mountain is won, With the sight of the Light of high Llwynon The smile beaming Light from clear Llwynon ) On her yonng life's chart, may the path of her heart Be grateful and gladsome withal, May the world's changing sorrows but bring glad to-morrows, Bring blessings, whatever befal; Till at last, sure and far, to a Heavenly throne Tend the flight of the Light of serene Llwynon Tend upward, sweet Light, high beyond Llwynon I E.

I Our readers may be aware that a society has for some time been in operation for promoting freedom of wor- ship, by restoring to the parishioueiy the unobstructed use of their j arish churches. This object is put for- ward more particularly with reference to the overgrown parishes of large aud populous towns; but the sympathy of country districts is sought in aid of what has assumed the proportions of a national movement. In order to arouse a more general feeling in behalf of the people at large, who are too often excluded from Christiau or- dinances for the convenience of comparatively few well- to-do families, the clergy throughout the kingdom have been appealed to, to preach simultaneous sermons on the questions-" Is the Gospel preached to the poor in England ? If not, why not!" To-morrow week, the 17th Sunday after Trinity, for which a suitable Epistle and Gospel are provided, has been selected for the pur- pose. The following letter has been addressed to the General Secretary of the National Association by the Lord Bishop of the Diocese. The Palace, Bangor, N. Wales, Aug. 29. Mv dear Sir,—I have received your letter of the 26th, and heg to express my sympathy with the objects of the Association. At the same time, I feel that the object can be best gained by a continued appeal to the good feelings of t»hose, whose interests have hitherto been too exclusively considered, than by any hasty exercise of authority. In my own Diocese, except in those parishes where there is a great influx of visitors in the summer months, but where those visitors are freely admitted to the pews, as far as the capacity of the building will admit, and ex- cept also a few places, which have recently become po- pulous, and no church has been yet provided, I am not aware that any person is shut out from church for want of room. In both the exceptional cases I have men- tioned, efforts are being made to supply .the want. With us the difficulty in fully adopting your plan would be, that the inhabitants of a parish resorted to, for pur- poses of sea-bathing, would be liable to be entirely crowded out of their own church during the season. We have, however, been for years gradually approxi- mating to the end which you have in view. I have no objection to such sermons as you propose being pieache(I in this Diocese. At the same time, I have no authority to order it. Believe me to be yours very faithfully, il J. C. BANGOR." Edward Herford, Esq." We are requested to add that by asking the clergy to refer to the subject in their sermons, it is desired only to draw public attention to our national duties and res- ponsibilities towards the people at large in the matter, and not to elicit argument for or against the pew system.
