Chambers as purveyors of this class of Sit but at the same tlme [time] to please and instruct the of readers, who, like ourselves, take it in hand in hope thereby to wile away a pleasant hour. The Fifteenth Part of the HoME [Home] CIRCLE is now before us, and seems destined to maintain the position it has already uired [fired] among this class of literature. The Blacksmith or Antwerp, by Pierce Egan, is still continued, and in- [eases] eases in interest as the tale proceeds. The other papers the present part are well written, and as a household book it has many recommendatory features for fireside reading. PLEASANT PaGES [Pages] FOR YUUNG [YOUNG] PEOPLE; a journal of Home Education, on the Infant School System. By S. Prout Newcombe. London Houlston and Stoneman. [Stonemason] tar fourth part of this little work now lies before us, and jsadmirably [admirably] caleulated [calculated] as a class-book in the more advanced stages of infant education, on the infant school system, but gi) be found chiefly valuable in connection with home in- [infraction] giraction. [fraction] It opens with a variety of interesting yet simply- [reconstructed] eonstructed [instructed] dialogues having reference to the moral habits ot the pupil, From these he is led step by step into the gution [caution] of the leading phenomena of science-embracing chemistry and natural history, and by easy stages through the first principles of history, geography, and drawing. in these studies the pupil is greatly assisted by explanatory diagrams, while, as a means of blending the grave with the lightsome, [light some] there are several interesting tales and poetical aketches [sketches] suitable for the youth of both sexes-distributed throughout the volume. We strongly recommend this little home educator to the attention of the working classes, for the more advanced of whom, and especially of the female portion, it is no doubt specially designed. New Music. London D'ALMAINE [D'ALMONER] and Co., 20, Soho- [Square] Square. D'auwainE D'awing] and Co.'s Royal Standard Edition of the Works of Handel. Great credit is due to D'Almaine [D'Almoner] and Co., for the spirited manner in which they are bringing out the Works of Handel, being exceedingly cheap, and the size much more convenient for organ or piano-forte than those editions of less size. We suppose the Te Deum [Drum] is the first of the series, and we hope the undertakers will persevere and receive the encouragement they deserve. The Organist's Standard Library being selections from the works of the great masters, arranged by James Stimpson, organist of the Town-hall, Birmingham. The No. we have before us contains Der Tod Jesu, [Jesus, by Graun- [Grain- Most beautiful appear, Hayden-and a slow movement from a Concerto by J. C. Bach, all of which avpear [appear] well arranged as organ pieces, and if Mr. Stimpson continue his labours he will assist in adorning the library of such organists as are fond of classical music.

May God protect and ble [be] i i . to his Daughter 88 you Letter from William Wirt [Writ] Decurxe [Decree] or Royat [Royal] anp [an] Nosie [Noise] has often occurred to us that a very interesting paper might be written on the rise and fall of English families. Truly does Dr. Borlase [Blase] remark, that 'the most lasting houses have only their seasons, more or less, of a certain constitutional strength they have their spring and Summer sunshine glare, their wane, decline, and death.' Take, for example, the Plantagenets, the Staffords, [Stafford] and the Nevilles, [Neville] the three most illustrious names on the roll of English nobility. What race in Europe surpassed in royal position, in personal achievement, our Henrys [Henry] and our Edwards and yet we find the great-great- [great grandson] grandson of Margaret Plantagenet, daughter and heiress of George Duke of Clarence, following the craft of a cobbler at the little town of Newport, in Shropshire, in the year 1637. Besides, if we were to investigate the fortunes of many of the inheritors of the royal arms, it would soon be discovered that 'the aspiring blood of Lancaster' had sunk into the ground. The princely stream flows at the present time through very humble veins. Among the lineal descendants of Edmund of Woodstock, Earl of Kent, sixth son of Edward L., king of England, entitled to quarter the royal arms, occur Mr. Joseph Smart, of Halesowen, butcher, and Mr. George Wilmot, keeper of the turnpike-gate at Cooper's Bank, near Dudley; and among the descendants of Thomas Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester, fifth son of Edward III., we may mention Mr. Stephen James Penny, the late sexton at St. George's, Hanover Square.- [Square] Burke's Anecdotes of the Peerage. Open Srraxinc.-In [Saxon.-In] our day candour is not onl [on] beneficial but safe y C this is the point on which we espe- [ese- especially] cially [call] insist, because the benefit will be little disputed, but the safety has, as yet, becn [been] scarcely tested save by those who are not the most timid. We can, however, bear multiplying testimony to the fact, that, whatever may have been the case in days not long past, the most out-speaking candour is now accepted with respect by those who differ from the opinions spoken out, and even by those who do not feel justified in practising it them- [themselves] selves. This last fact, indeed, of which we have lately had several striking instances-when we consider the disposition to a self defensive disparagement of virtues which we cannot practise-is in itself one of the most estimable and generous acts of candour. But to the absolute safety we have testimony from a practical phi- [philosopher] losopher, [philosopher] so ably expressed, that we must pluck it out of a private letter, rather than suffer it to lie hidden ; though the freedom with which it was written makes us doubt our right to adorn it with a name that would add to the weight of the evidence But for what I meet with continually among some of the freest and forwardest people I know, I should almost as soon think of insisting on the doctrine of gravitation, with long illustrations, as on the duty and expediency of a per- [perfectly] fectly [perfectly] free declaration of opinions. I have met with only one person in all my experience who sees as I do the impossibility of calculating what the general mind can bear, and the presumption of concluding that other minds are incapable of receiving the truth that we hold. As I see a whole parish full of people who go to church for the sake of example to one another, I see a whole parish full of people who are hiding up what they think, out of consideration for everybody else. For my own part, I dare not conclude other people to be my 'weaker brethren.' The presumption of this shocks one, when it is set down plainly. In every case of my 'ruining myself' by out speaking, I have found a public ready and waiting and (what is much more important to me) I have found myself brought face to face with persons wiser and more experienced than myself in that parti- [part- particular] cular [circular] matter, who have administered invaluable aid to me. The truth 'burns in our pockets.' Friends of mine, remarkable before the world for having borne testimony in an unpopular cause, are uneasy about it (this plain speaking), and remonstrate with me-some on the danger to other people's faith, and others on the peril to my own 'influence.' My answer is, that I hope people bold their convictions on some better ground than my sharing them, and that my 'influence' must take its chance. I never took any charge of it, and I certainly shall not begin now. -The Leader. FasHIONS [Fashion] FOR OCTOBER.- [OCTOBER] Morning Dress Lavender bloom gros [gross] d'Automne [d'Autumn] robe. The corsage, very long waisted and tight to the shape, is open from the point of the shoulder to the bottom of the waist, displaying a cam- [cambric] bric chemisette [chemist] of a new form, half high in front, and bordered with a festooned trimming of the same material standing up a short basquine, [basque] cleft on the hips, terminates the corsage in a manner very advantageous to the shape; the basquine [basque] and the sides of the corsage are trimmed with uffed [cuffed] ribbon, and the opening in front is ornamented with ozenges [lozenges] of thesame. [the same] 'The sleeves a three-quarter length, la Louis Quatorte, [Qua torte] square and moderately wide at the bottom, easy but not tight at the upper part; they are finished with a row of puffed ribbon, and a single deep fall of Valenciennes [Valentines] lace.

[Assembled] ee HEALTH OF THE QUEEN OF THE BELGIANS.-By the latest news from Ostend [Intend] it has become manifest that the above distinguished lady is gradually sinking, and that her death is hourly expected by her professional advisers. On Monday her mother, (the ex-Queen of the French,) visited her royal daughter, attended by the younger branches of the late Louis Philippe's family. The interview is described by our contemporaries as of the most touching character. AcTIONS [Action] IN THE CoUNTY [County] CoURTS [Court] ABOVE 50.-There is a provision in the extended County Courts Act not gene- [generally] rally known, under which actions can be tried in the County Courts for more than 50. It is enacted by the 17th sec- [section] tion, [ion] that if the parties shall agree, by a memorandum signed by them or their attorneys, the County Court may try actions beyond the amount limited, or any action in which the title to land, whether of freehold, copyhold, leasehold, or other tenure, or to any tithe, toll, market, fair, or other franchise, shall be in question. The parties must state in their memorandum of agreement that they know such cause of action to be above the amount limited by this act, or that they know the title to the land, &., will come in question. The memorandum is to be filed with the clerk of the court at the time of filing the demand. All local actions to be tried before any County Court with the consent of the parties shall be brought and tried in that jurisdiction only in which the lands, tenements or here- [hereditaments] ditaments, [hereditaments] or some part thereof, are situate. Tae [Tea] Arctic ExPEDITION.-Since [Expedition.-Since] the arrival of the North Star, referred to in our last, an Aberdeen vessel, the Prince Albert, Captain Forsyth, has reached England, bringing despatches and papers from the Arctic regions. It appears that an Esquimaux [Esquire] had told Sir John Ross a story of two ships having been broken up by the ice, and their crews and officers murdered two years ago by a fierce tribe of natives in the neighbourhood of Cape Dudley Diggs. [Dogs] The story is wholly disbelieved by Captain Ommaney [Oman] of the Assistance, although Sir John Ross appears to credit it. There is also further intelligence to the effect that the remains of an en- [encampment] campment [encampment] have been found on Beechy [Beech] Island, together with bones of fowls, pieces of beefand [beef and] pork, and a rope with the Woolwich mark upon it. A cairn of stones had also been set up, but there was no indication as to what had become of the sojourners whoever they were. The master rope maker at Chatham-yard declares his opinion that the frag- [fragment] ment [men] of rope is made of Hungarian hemp, and must have been made between 184 [W] and 1849, but cannot identify it with any of the stores supplied to the missing expedition, as rope of that description was supplied to other ships, but it is quite certain that the Erebus and Terror both carried ropes of a similar make. x SANDFORD IN AUSTRALIA.-The Adelaide papers received on Monday give the following detail of an attack on Miss Sandford, whose unhappy connection with Rush, the murderer, is doubtless in the recollection of the public [public] Mr. R. W. Bennett, a resident in Adelaide, was charged at the police court with threatening the life of Miss Sandford. The case, at the uest [est] of the Bishop of Adelaide (Dr. Short), who has acted as guardian to the unfortunate lady since her arrival in the colony, was gone into privately, the local reporter being excluded. The nature of the charge, says the Adelaide Times, implied numerous threats held out by the defendant, declaring if she did not pay him money he had advanced her brother, he would blow her brains out, and his conduct was so violent that she apprehended he would carry out his threat. Her brother, who accompanied her to the colony, lost his life at Port Phillip a few days after their arrival. During his stay the defendant-ascer- [defendant-ace- ascertaining] taining [training] he was in want of money to discharge some debts that he had contracted, earn the ndant [nant] asserting that he did so on her i Mise Sandford denied. She knew nothing of the affair until Mr. Bennett made the demand upon her. The defendant, in answer to the charge, persisted that he advanced the money to her brother on her security. He had waited on her several times, but the only reply he could get from her Well, sir, is that all He was so exasperated at her conduct, that he certainly made use of harah [Sarah] words, hreatened [threatened] to shoot her.-The i bound the Slofondant [Defendant] over in heavy securities to keep the peace towards Miss Sandford for six months,-Datly [months,-Daily] News, Cream of Bunch.

Poacuer's [Packer's] Funv.-The [Fund.-The] Derby Mercury states that the Mansfield poachers have actually established a protec- [protect- protective] tive [tie] fund. Punch is authorised to declare that Lord B-un-w has not been elected the treasurer. A New French chemist has invented a new shell that, it is said, in a few minutes will send to the bottom a ship of 120 guns. Will the shell be exhibited in 18512 We hope so. It is from such a shell that time may hope to hatch the dove of peace- [peace perpetual] perpetual peace. PorrEvin's [Proving's] Last Fotty.-It [Forty.-It] was announced the other day that M. Poitevin, [Pointe] the insensate aeronaut, [Argonaut] was going to make a balloon-ascent mounted on the back of a live ostrich. The notion of the wren soaring on the back of the eagle is surpassed by that of the goose ascending on that of the ostrich. , THE Spoons or War.-A writer in an Altona [National] paper calls upon the women to subscribe towards the war be- [between] tween Holstein and Denmark. He asks for the precious metals in any shape. Give up, he says, one table or teaspoon. But the ladies do not subscribe; they evidently think that war has already had more than spoons enough. ENGLAND's GREEN Woops [Woods] anp [an] Forests.-A little book has been published under the title of How to Lay Out a Small Garden. We beg to recommend to the notice of the Woods and Forests a similar little book, which we are thinking of publishing, called How to Lay Out 12,000 in Spoiling a Public Garden. It will be accom- [com- accompanied] panied [pained] with a large cut, viz., a diagram of the large slice of ground which they have had the impudence to cut off St. James's Park. Sportine [Sporting] INTELLIGENcE.-Mr. [Intelligence.-Mr] Gordon Cumming is actively engaged fitting out a large boat, with which, having exhausted all the dangers of the Continent, he is about to brave the perils of the deep. The object of his nautical expedition is, as rumour is too busy in circu- [circus- circulating] lating, [laying] to capture the American Sea Serpent. He has been heard to observe, that he will either catch it or perish in the attempt. His great wish is to bring the skin home with him, and hang it in festoons, like an immense garland, round the walls of the South African Exhibition. A Most Movine [Moving] TaLe.- [Late.- Late] We seea [sea] book advertised under the singular title of the Khan's Tale. This must be the adventures of the celebrated tin Can, which we have all heard of as having been sorepeatedly [so repeatedly] tied tothe [tithe] unfor- [unfair- unfortunate] tunate [tuna] dog's Tail. If so, its revelations must be a string of the most exciting ups-and-downs, which cannot fail to make a great noise in all circles. We think we may borrow for once the eloquent words of the Evening Paper, and say, We know of no book so likely to have a long run as the Khan's Tale. CasE [Case] OF CONSCIENCE FOR TEETOTALLERS.-The York- [Yorkshireman] shireman [shire man] tells a story about a sow fattened by a farmer at Thirsk, on rum and milk, in the proportions of three half-pints of the former to a quantity-not stated-of the latter daily. Upon this diet the sow became an habitual drunkard-drunk to an extent exceeding the normal drunkenness of a sow-as drunk asa sot. She increased in weight at the rate of 5 stone 2 pounds in a few days, and when killed weighed 42 stone 10 pounds, without the head, irto [it] which probably a good deal of the rum had got besides. Now, as the animal's flesh must have been saturated with alcohol, it becomes a question whether any person pledged to total abstinence could conscientiously partake of such rum pork-except, of course, medicinally. Tue Hat Rerorm.-Every [Reform.-Every] one agrees that there ought to be a reform in hats, but, after putting on our conjuring cap, as well as our considering cap, without deriving any assistance from either coiffure, we are still at a loss for the means by which the great result is to be accomplished. Can society go back to its original hat- [heartlessness] lessness, [lessons] and begin as it were, da capo, by abandoning the day cap, as it has already, in many cases, flung away the night cap In the East, we know the Fez was forced on to the polls of the people by an arbitrary power, which would not have scrupled to take the head into its own hands, if the head-dress had been objected to by the owners; but in this country such a course could not be adopted, even though martial law should be proclaimed, and a General Hats-off placed at the head of the nation. A proclamation could never accomplish a hatty [hearty] reform; but we are not prepared to say something might not be done by shrieval interfer- [interfere- interference] ence, [once] which would be consistent with those municipal institutions that all Englishmen cherish. Yes, yes; something towards a reform in hats might perhaps be safely attempted by a hatti-scheriff [Patti-sheriff] EscaPE [Escape] OF Two CONVICTS FROM THE LEEDS BornoucH [Born ouch] GaoL.-On [Goal.-On] Saturday last, it was discovered that two government convicts had escaped from the Leeds Borough Gaol. One is Richard Harrison, a man who was convicted of felony at the Yorkshire assizes last year, and sentenced to seven years' transportation; and the other is Robert Shenton, aged 27, who was convicted of felony at the Staf- [Staff- Stafford] ford sessions, and sentenced to ten years' transportation. The former is 33 years of age, 5ft. [ft] 6in. [in] high, with read hair and fresh complexion the latteris [latter] 27 years of age, 5ft [ft] Qin. high, with hair inclined to be sandy, and is a native of Cheadle, near Manchester. The escape in both instances was effected by pulling out the windows of their cells, and cutting away the stone work into which the iron bars outside were secured. Both cells are in the upper story of the building, from which the prisoners lowered themselves down by means of ro The stone was cut away by a sort of needle used in mat making, which is as thick as a small chisel, with a sharp point at the end; and the ropes used were a part of what they were employed in working up into matting. .A very active search has been made by the governor and his assistants all round the country, anda [and] reward of 20 has been offered for the recapture of the runaways, but nothing has been heard of them. Both these convicts escaped in their prison dress-a kind of grey friezed cloth. Four Lives Lost orF [of] BristoL.-On [Bristol.-On] Sunday last a party of eleven gentlemen left Bristol in a boat which was sloop- [sloop rigged] rigged and had a half deck. The day was very boisterous. and blew a gale from SSW., with a heavy sea on. The boat p ed down the river and nearly as far as the Holmes, when she put about to return homewards. When near a point known as the English and Welsh grounds, she injudiciously took a tack with all sail set, and shipped a quantity of water. She then endeavoured to go on the other tack, and the party foolishly sitting to windward, when she came round they were, of course, to leeward, and she consequently heeled over, shipping anothersea; [another sea] so that she had at least a ton of water on board. They then found to their dismay that the pump would not act, and they commenced baling her as well as they could with their hats. On reaching the mouth of the Avon, at a part called The Swash, which is a bar of sand at the entrance of the river, the boat missed stays, and her steersman, Mr. William Lodge (who has been the commander of a vessel), suddenly luffed her up in the wiad's [wild's] eye, she being at the time under a press of canvas, when it is supposed she must have touched the ground, for she immediately heeled over, and almost instantly sunk, going down stern foremost. A Pill boat took up seven of the party, but the remaining four met with a watery grave. Grorce [Grocer] Hupson.-The [Hudson.-The] Standard, Morning Post, Morning Herald, and Sun, have, like Lord Brougham, been devoting the recess to experimental pursuits. In other words, they Lave been making a desperate effort to rehabilitate the damaged reputation of the ex-railway king, Mr. George Hudson. In various towns in the north of England, where Mr. Hudson is supposed to possess, or to have possessed, political influence, thousands of the num- [sum- numbers] bers [bees] of the Suz, [Su] Post, Standard, containing these vindica- [vindicate- vindications] tions, [tins] were distributed gratis. The articules [articles] themselves were reprinted as posting bills, and the walls of the towns plentifully placarded therewith. Had it been possible to whitewash a blackmoor, [black] our railway Ethiopian would now be radiant in whiteness as one of Bunyan's shining ones. -Daily News. STRANGE DISCLOSURES IN A BoaRD [Board] OF GUARDIANS.- [GUARDIANS] On Friday, the 4th instant, an unusually full meeting of the Marylebone Board of Guardians, London, was held, and some remarkable discoveries made. The first was that, in the absence of the chaplain, one of the paupers, at the command of the master of the workhouse, put on the rey. gentleman's surplice, and in that, to him unusual garb, had conducted the whole of the usual service in the chapel of the workhouse The chaplain himself was present, and seemed very indignant that any notice was taken of the matter; indeed, several attempts were made to move the next business, but without effect, and resolutions were carried and entered in the minute-book in reference to the subject. One of the guardians admonished ie auper [upper] that ke had incurred heavy pains and penalties for on the surplice. The other disclosure revealed the fact that carrier pigeons were kept in the workhouse, the late master of which regularly forwarded them to Goodwood, Epsom, &c., in order to receive speedy intelli- [until- intelligence] gence [Gents] of the races, he being a great better, and having absolutely died with a betting-book in his hand. An extensive system of gambling was alleged to have pre- [prevailed] vailed [sailed] in the workhouse; and to crown all, an individual vestryman, who possessed no claim whatever to the birds, had caught and sold them, appropriating the whole pro- [proceeds] ceeds [Leeds] to his own purposes . THE REGISTRATION IN LONDON.-The revising barrister in the Tower Hamlet, has given case in- [involving] volving [solving] the votes of 15,000 persons in that district, and of 10,000 persons in the whole of the metropolitan boroughs. The question was whether persons were entitled to vote whose landlords compounded for the rates and taxes. In support of the claim Messrs. Roberts and Wickham con- [contended] tended that as the goods and chattels of the tenants were liable to be distrained [dis trained] for non-paymeht [non-payment] of the rate b the landlord, and as the rent was proportionately raised, the latter on account of his paying the rates, the tenant was virtually the rate payer, and ought therefore to stand on the list of voters if his rental was sufficient. It was also urged that the Court of Common Pleas had decided that payment of rates by the landlord was payment by the tenant. On the other side it was con- [contended] tended on the ground of the 75th section of 6th Victoria, c. 18, that a person must either be actually rated or claim to be rated in order to a legal vote. The revising barrister gave an opinion adverse to the claim, basing his judgment upon Gth [Th] and 7th William IV. chap. 96; and the 27th section of the Reform Act. He con- [considered] sidered [resided] that where the name of a householder was not down in the rating book he ought to claim to have it in- [inserted] serted [seated] on occasion of every rate, That might be very troublesome, but he did not sit to reform the rate-book, but to revisc [Revs] the voter's list according to the law existing, THE VICAR OF LEEDS AND CHURCH UNIONS The Rev. Dr. Hook, vicar of Leeds, has addressed a long letter to the Secretaries of the Yorkshire Church Union, in which he explains, with some degree of minuteness, his views in reference to the present uneasy posture of ecclesiastical affairs. A meeting of the Yorkshire Church Union being con- [convened] vened [vend] for Thursday last, at the Minster Yard, York, Dr. Hook and several other clergymen of Leeds, had been invited to attend it, but the doctor, instead of accepting the invitation, has challenged the Union to declare what it is, whence it is, and by whose authority it exists. Dr. Hook asks why, when the first meeting to originate the society was held in the vicinity of Leeds, only seven clergymen out of sixty-two resident in that borough, were favoured with an invitation to be present. Having thus boldly challenged the Union to justify its existence, the vicar proceeds to develope [develop] his reasons for not attending its meetings. The following are the objects proposed to be accom- [com- accomplished] plished [polished] by the Yorkshire Church Union - 1. General Church extension. 2. The increase of the episcopate in proportion to the wants of the Church, together with the practical enjoyment of the securities which are contemplated in her formularies and constitution, against unfit ap- [appointments] pointments. [Ointment] 3. The revival of a Church legislature. 4. The removal of all civil impediments to the right exercise of spiritual functions. The first of these points the doctor approves, as a matter of course. The second and fourth he also approves, and boldly remarks that at the present time the royal prerogative is carried, in ecclesiastical affairs, to an extent for which no precedent can be found except in the reign of the most despotic of the Tudors, and that it is exercised with a recklessness for which we can only find a parallel in the last days of the last of the Stuarts who sat on the throne of England. With reference to the design and tendency of the present manner in which the pre- [prerogative] rogative [relative] of the crown is exercised, the Doctor declares that it is used in order to insinuate rationalistic and latitudinarian notions into the Church of England, and that it is thus undermining the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is also alleged that the liberty of the Church is destroyed, and that amidst the freedom of surround- [surrounding] ing sects, the church is not only restrained from excesses but actually enslaved, so that while Dissenters, both Romish [Rooms] and Protestant, can carry out their respec- [respect- respective] tive [tie] systems, every impediment is offered to the exten- [extent- extension] sion of the Church. Having thus protested against the way in which the royal prerogative is exercised, Dr. Hook proceeds to de- [deprecate] precate [prelate] the revival of a convocation, which he does not think to be at all a likely means of delivering the Church from her present difficulties. He believed that a con- [convocation] vocation at this time would be only an arena on which two impassioned parties would contend for the mastery ; the party which sympathises with Calvinism and Pro- [Protestant] testant [distant] Dissent, and the party which sympathises with Medievalism and Romish [Rooms] Dissent. And from the very circumstances of this party warfare, attended by the violence and immoralities from which party warfare is seldom exempt, rationalism would acquire the influence of a moderator, and infidelity would triumph. Instead of a convocation the Doctor advises a general union of all sincere churchmen, in order, at the next general elec- [elect- election] tion, [ion] to secure the return of members, irrespective of their political opinions, who will so regulate the royal supremacy, as to make it not as now an arbitrary, but a constitutional power. Dr. Hook does not deny but that altered circumstances and lapse of time may render convocation needful, but meanwhile he recommends the most clamorous of his brethren to cease to wallow in the muddy wells of Romish [Rooms] theology to study the history of the Christ to which they belong, and to cultivate an acquaintance with Protestant Divinity. The writer next challenges the Yorkshire Church Union to declare what steps they have taken to prevent the-intrusion of Romanists into the discussions of their society. He declares that if Church Unions are to be useful, they must at once and openly avow that their aim is to maintain and propagate the principles of the English Reformation to uphold scriptural and primitive truth, in opposition to medieval heresies and to pre- [preserve] serve the middle position of the Church of England, in opposition equally to rationalistic scepticism and Romish [Rooms] superstition. Dr. Hook then refers to the perversion of Viscount Fielding, and alludes to other members of Church Unions, who attend at Romish [Rooms] Meeting Houses in London. The Vicar then goes on to explain his terms, identi- [dent- identifying] fying [dying] the Rationalists with the Evangelicals. He says, the Church of England is greatly injured by con- [contact] tact with Romanizers. [Romances. He confesses that there are both Romanists and Calvinists among us and finally concludes by professing his charity and good-will toward honest Dissenters, whom he respects and honours, not- [notwithstanding] withstanding his disapproval of their systems. THE FRIMLEY MURDER.-Friday having been fixed for the re-examination of the parties in custody, the excite ment [men] was proportionately increased, the more so in conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of the apprehension in Guildford, on Thursday evening, of a fourth prisoner, named Samuel Harwood, first eousin [using] of Levi Harwood, already under remand. Among the facts which oozed out, it soon became known that at least two of the masks worn by the burglars had been dis- [discovered] covered. These were found on Thursday afternoon by a Kooper [Cooper] in the employ of Mr. Burrell, a gentleman resident at Frimley, in a plantation very near the spot where the remains of bread and meat were discovered, and within a mile of the deceased gentleman's house. The pocket com- [communion] munion [union] silver cup was also picked up at the same time, in the immediate locality, and from the state in which this was found it appears to have dropped accidentally from the hands of one of the villains. 'The masks, it should be stated, are merely pieces of m [in] baize, with holes cut for the eyes and mouth, and strings of narrow white ribbon to fasten them round the head. After the apprehension of the prisoners on Sunday, warrants were obtained to search the lodgings of the accused's relatives, and in the house of Samuel Harwood a piece of green baize was found, which, it is stated, corresponds with the baize of which the masks are formed. In consequence of this fact, and some other suspicious circumstances, Samuel Harwood was lodged in custody on Thursday evening. Mrs. Hollest, [Holes] in her evi- [vi- evidence] dence [dene] at the inquest on Tuesday week, stated that she be- [believed] lieved [lived] the burglars, when they entered her room, were attired in light dresses, and at the private examination before Captain Mangles, on the same day, she added that they appeared to be dressed like mountebanks at a fair, Tn consequence of this information it has been conjectured that the 'bargiars [bargains] wore their shirts over their clothes, and this hypothesis is strengthened by the fact that on the right sleeve of Levi Harwood's shirt are marks of wet gravel cor- [corresponding] responding with a place where some man. appears to have slipped and fallen down in the garden in front of the de- [deceased] ceased's residence. A fustian jacket, found in Samuel Har- [Harwood] wood's cottage, is known to have been worn by Levi Harwood when he left home on Friday evening, but when he returned on Saturday he wore another coat. On Friday the prisoners, who had been lodged in different parts of the town, were brought to the magistrates' office, in the High- [Street] street, Guildford. The reporters were excluded, while Mr. Best with his colleagues retired, and in the prĂ©agnce [presence] of the prisoners received the charge, with a request for a week's remand on the pa t of the superintendent of police. Mr. Best having formally ted this, sent for the reporters and announced the fact, stating, at the same time, that the day had been fixed as far distant as possible, in the h that the magistrates might thus be able to have the evi- [vi- evidence] dence [dene] of Mrs. Hollest [Holes] at their next meeting. The body of the lamented Rev. George Edward Hollest [Holes] was conveyed to its last resting place on Monday, attended by a large crowd of spectators, among whom were the leading gentry and yeomen of the district, by whom the deceased was generally beloved for his kindness of heart and suavity of manner. The adjourned inquest on the body was resumed on 'Tuesday afternoon, at the White Hart Inn, Frimley, when Mr. Biddlecombe, [Bedchamber] superintendent of the Godalming police, stated that he had compared two foot marks under- [underneath] neath a tree on the lawn, in front of the house of the deceased, which agreed with those of Trower [Tower] and Hare- [Harewood] wood, two of the men already in custody on suspicion. Although there are a variety of facts brought to light, which may form the clue to the successful prosecution of further enquiries, it was deemed advisable for the ends of justice that for the present those facts should be with- [withheld] hell. The enquiry was, in consequence, formally adjourned until the 22nd instant, and the four men already in custody were sent back to prison; meanwhile, the police authorities are actively engaged in prosecuting their enquiries in those localities where it is likely that fresh evidence bearing on this tragical event may be secured. The Sun, of Thursday, in referring to this tragedy, observes, that in the chain of evidence accumulating against the parties in custody for this atrocious crime, not the least important will be the incident that a token, which might mistaken for a penny, has been found on one of them, and can be identified ty Mrs. Hollest [Holes] as having been given to her the day before by the village schoolmistress. OLp [Old] Birps [Birds] nor CaucHT [Caught] with CHAFF.-We have no doubt that many of our readers will deem this the proper heading for the following paragraph from the Railway Record -For some time to come we should think Mr, Hudson's best motto would be a very old one, quieta [quiet] non novere [never] It is whispered about that overtures have been nade [made] to Mr. Hudson to induce him to come forward and knd [and] the assistance of his energy and experience towards 'etrieving [believing] the affairs of a certain railway company, whose dividends have pretty nearly disap [dis] since the reform directors have occupied the position he once filled. Wedo [Wed] Lot pretend to know the fact, but we have some reason to surmise that the hon. member would only consent to meet such overtures in a favourable spirit upon condition of re- [receiving] iving Irving] some preliminary amende [amend] honorable [honourable] for the unqua- [unique- unequalled] lfied [field] abuse and slander which have been heaped upon hi by former friends, and dealt with as if proved. In this t the hon. memberis [members] certainly right. We must also, vhile [while] referring to on dits, [its] add, it is reported that more than qe great railway corporation would be glad to see Mr. Hudson among them. There is also some talk of Mr. Hud- [HUD- Hudson] fon [on] taking an active interest in the management of one line, but of course such matters are only to ke be looked upon as rumours.

Spirit of the Wublic [Public] FYournals. [Journals] MECHANICS' INSTITUTES AND SECULAR EDUCATION. (From the Manchester Examiner and Times. ) The opponents to what is cailed [called] a purely secular education. would do well to look around them and observe the quiet and unobtrusive progress this principle is already ing in various localities. The impossibility of bringing together a number of children, the offspring of individuals professing various religious opinions, of teaching them the simple elements of mental culture, and of thereby improving their means aqcuiring [acquiring] a more useful position in society, has been too long a source of ridicule and denunciation. If we connot [cannot] make angels of them, they tell us we must not make men. If men will not go to church, they must not be prevented going to workhouse or gaol. These fallacies are beginning to be more seriously considered by large numbers who have as yet, stood by the way side, but who, on all occasions of great excitement, are the chief agents of success. The mere theorists and dogmatists are daily met by facts with which they are unable to contend; experience, the best of monitors, continually refutes the speculative absurdities they venture still to enunciate; and, after that patient and per- [persevering] Severing struggle resolved upon by all who take a true and rational interest in the welfare of their fellow-creatures, there can be little doubt that, like other efforts founded on wholesome truths, the object will be attained, and present platitudes take their posi- [post- position] tion [ion] among other traditional prejudices. The approach- [approaching] ing conference, and the proposition to make the Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire Society a National Association, will open the eyes of vast numbers to the present state of education in this country, and the necessity for a unity of purpose in carrying out its amendment. It will be discovered that whilst we are arguing upon the best mode of destroying the evil, it is growing up into a giant monster-a com- [compound] pound of ignorance, poverty, and crime. Men will begin to perceive that it is not only a moral but a com- [commercial] mercial [commercial] question that individuals having the benefit of mental culture become better servants, performing their daily avocations with greater judgment and dis- [discretion] cretion; [creation] have a clearer perception of their position, as well as of their common duties; possess purer tastes, are more refined in their habits, and, as the natural result of all this, seek for a greater share of material comforts, and so tend to imerease [immense] the industrial resources of the civilised world. The practicability of bringing together all faiths and creeds, or rather of keeping them in abeyance, and making the leading principle of daily education to con- [consist] sist [list] of moral, industrial, and intellectual training, has been shown in many instances, but it is rapidly taking a more tangible shape in connection with a number of Mechanics' Institutions throughout the country, and, perhaps, more particularly in this county of Lancashire. In the report on the improvement of Mechanics Insti- [Inst- Institutions] tutions, [institutions] drawn up by Mr. Thomas Hogg, the able secre- [secure- secretary] tary [Tar] to the Lancashire and Cheshire Union, we find there are nine day-schools of a non-sectarian character in Lancashire alone, affording instruction to no less than two thousand pupils, and deriving their main support from small fees, amounting to the annual sum of 8,000. These are most important as auxiliaries in supplying that want of elementary instruction,-felt by all who have had experience in the details of such insti- [inst- institutions] tutions,-among [institutions,-among ,-among] those members who seck [neck] the higher branches of education in the night department and who can never be expected in any large numbers to derive that extent of benefit which might be theirs had they been familiarised with the first elements of knowledge, and the habit of study in the early period of life. Few men will become boys, and still fewer enter upon the process of elementary training after a hard day's work in workshop or factory. But the schools we allude to are still more valuable in the evidence they afford of moral culture arising from intellectual discipline. Almost all the children con- [connected] nected [connected] with them are found to attend also the Sunday- [Schooldays] schools of the various denominations to which they are supposed to belong, whilst not only their attainments but their conduct are pronounced by the Sunday teachers to be much in advance of those who are not in the habit of attending school during any part of the day. There needs no ghost to tell us of this, but our ghostly teachers would in too many instances appear to discredit the fact. In the report alluded to we find the following statement regarding the religious bodies to which the pupils belong in the schools of the Prescot and Woolton Institutions - Prescot. Woolton. Total. Church of England ............... 20 ... 88 ... 108 Roman 13 28 41 Wesleyan 16 59... 75 Unitarian eee [see] 1 9 .. 10 Attend no place of worship 16 .. 16 Non-ascertained 8 .. 18 84 184 268 Can any man of right feeling-of religious feeling, we will venture to say, that religious feeling taught by the founder of Christianity-peruse this statement, and not be struck with the practical resemblance it bears to the spirit of Christian doctrine That such schools will continue to be founded in connection with the various Mechanics' Institutes, and establishments of a similar character throughout the country there can be little doubt. The directors of such institutions will discover the importance of the plan, and the hold it will give them upon the sympathies of the people. The sectarian feeling once undermined in this direction, and the whole visionary fabric may be expected rapidly to follow. MURDER OF A WIFE BY HER HusBAND.-It [Husband.-It] appears that in the village of Watlington, in Oxfordshire, John Lam- [Lambourn] bourn, a working man, and his wife had long lived unhap- [unhappy- unhappily] ily [il] together, and violent altercations uently [until] occurred between them. The wife was seen on the afternoon of Saturday last in good health, and at eleven o'clock the same night was found lying dead in the garden near her cottage door. There was no direct evidence to prove that the husband had been the means of causing her death, though it was evident that death had ensued from the brutal violence that had been exhibited towards her; but in consequence of the husband's repeated threats on former occasions, that he would do for her, Lambourn was found guilty of the murder, and committed to the next Oxford assizes. SoutH [South] LANCASHIRE REGISTRATION.-William Corrie Esq., the revising barrister for the Liverpool district, opened his court on Tuesday, at the Sessions-house. The objections made by the Tories amounted to about 600. The name of the man who signed nearly the whole of the objections was John Howard. Mr. E. Bretherton, for the Free-traders, took an objection to the form of the objections, the description of the objections not being in accordance with the act of Parliament. The court ruled that the objections signed by Howard were informal, and the whole of the objections, both Tory and Protectionist, fell to the ground.-Liverpool Mercury. EXTRAORDINARY SEIZURE OF STOLEN PLATE.-Within the past few days a robbery of plate to a very large amount from the residence of a Roman Catholic clergyman, named Richards, of Bootle, near Liverpool, has been reported to the police authorities in London, and in consequence of information by them received three active officers visited the premises ot Mr. Thomas Charles Sirrell, [Surely] gold and silver refiner, of 53 and 54, Barbican, London. Upon entering the shop, two large packages were seized which were lying upon the counter, and at the same moment addressing Mr. Sirrell, [Surely] one of the officers enquired whether Mr Sirrell [Surely] had received a letter from Liverpool that morning. Mr. Sirrell [Surely] replied that he had, and at once handed a letter over to Mr. Lund for his inspection, who after perusing the same took Mr. Sirrell [Surely] into custody, on suspicion of receiving stolen goods. The two packages referred to were then opened, and the contents found to consist of the produce of two robberies recently effected in the neighbourhood of Liverpool, one of them being that of Mr. Richards, of Bootle. 'The telegraph was immediately put in operation, and in less than an hour a message was returned from Mr. Dowling, at Liverpool, intimating that two men, named Macaulay and Maguire, had been appre- [paper- apprehended] hended [ended] on the authority of the information sent from Lon- [London] don only fifty minutes before The following day Mr. Sirrell [Surely] was sent to Liverpool to be examined before the Liverpool Bench, and in the interim all his valuable stock of jewellery and plate were removed in the custody of the police On Thursday (week) all the three prisoners were brought before the Liverpool magistrates, but the facts were not then gone into, a remand being asked for and granted to the prosecution until the following Tuesday. Bail was tendered but refused on behalf of each of the three prisoners. On Tuesday last the three prisoners were again brought before the Liverpool bench, when the Rev. James Taylor, the Roman Catholic priest, of Great Crosby, near Liverpool, (whose premises were plundered of a quantity of plate and other articles on the evening of the 29th of Sep- [September] tember [member] last), and his maid servant were examined at some length. Several of the articles produced were by them identified as the same that had been seized by the police on Mr. Sirrell's [Surely's] premises. Amongst those identified were the two pyxes, the two holy oil stocks, and a sugar-spoon. The pyxes and the oil stocks were those he missed from the sacristy. The table and teaspoons were, he believed, those which had been borrowed, and which he had used on the Saturday prior to the robbery. At this stage of the pro- [proceedings] ceedings, [proceeding] Mr. Dowling, Commissioner of Police for Liver- [Liverpool] pool and public prosecutor, asked for a further remand, at the same time intimating that a separate case, involving M'Guire [M'Guide] and Sirreil, [Serial] the former in stealing plate from Mrs. Tinley, of Liverpool, and the latter with havi [have] urchased [purchased] the same, knowing it to have been stolen, would. be ready for investigation when they were again brought up. Mr. Lewis, at great length, and with much ability, resisted such a course on behalf of Sirrell, [Surely] but the beach ultimately decided on remanding all the three prisoners, until Tuesday next, and declined to accept bail in either case. EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDE at GRAVESEND.-On Friday evening week an inquest was held on the body of John Rew [Re] Gatley, [Cattle] aged 45, of 161, Piccadilly, London. The deceased had taken lodgings at the George Tavern on the Tuesday evening. On esday [Tuesday] evening he requested not to be disturbed on the following morning, but not coming down stairs, about four o'elock [o'lock] in the afternoon, the landlord proceeded up stairs, and finding the door locked obtained the assistance of Sergeant Penman, and broke open the door. On en the room they found the deceased lying on his back on the bed quite dead. His right hand was resting over the right thigh, near the groin, a little below which was a transverse wound about 24 inches long. The left hand, placed down the left side, held a pocket hand- [handkerchief] kerchief, with the hand sod pare of that side, was immersed in a pool of blood which flowed from the wound in the right thigh. After hearing other evidence, the j returned a verdict, That deceased had put an end to his existence, being at the time of unsound mind, From the London Gazette.

It appeared from the evidence of the plaintiff that he was one of the contributors to the land scheme, and had paid the sum sought to be recovered.- [recovered] Morning Chronicle. THERAPEUTICS.-The history of medicine is by no means flat- [flattering] tering [tearing] to science. It is qucstionable [questionable] whether more is known of i their causes and their cure, at this moment, than at the time ot Galen; it is certain that diseases are quite as numerous, and in the aggregate as fatal. Every aze [axe] has produced some new system of artificial therapeutics which the next 2ve [v] has banished ; each has boasted in its turn of cures, and they, in their turn, have been condemned as failures. Med'cines [Med'vines] themselves are the subjects of fashion. Is it not a positive proof that medicine is yet unsettled; in fact, that it has no established principles, that it is little more than conjectural At this Moment, says Mr. Pinny, 'the opinions on the subject of treatment are almost as numerous as the practitioners themselves. Witness the mins [mind] of contradiction a the treatment of even one di namely, consumption, Stroll attributes its frequency to the in. troduction [production] of bark. Morton considers bark a effertual [effectual] cure. Ried [Red] ascribes the frequency of the disease to the use of mercury. Brillonet [Brilliant] asserts that it is curable by mercury only. Ruse says that consumption is an inflammatory disease-should be treated by bleeding, purging, cooling medicines, and starvation. Salva- [Salve- Salvation] dori [Dore] says it js a disease of debility, and should be treated by tonics, stimulating remedies, and a generous diet. Galen recom- [com- recommended] mended vinegar as the best preventative of consumption. Des- [Assault] sault [salt] and others assert that consumption is often brought on taking vinegar to prevent obesity. Beddoes recommended fox- [foxglove] glove asa specific. Dr Parr found foxglove more injurious in his practice than beneficial. Such are the contradictory state- [statements] ments [rents] of medical men And yet there can be but one tme [me] theory of disease. Of the fallibility and inefficiency of medicine, none have been more conscious than medical men, many of whom have been honest enough to avow their conviction, and now re- [recommend] commend MESSRS.
