Our own office has become a post-office. It would seem as if all the letters that ought to have been written for delivery on several previous Sundays in the ordi [ord] course, and by. the agency of the great establishment in St. Martin s-le-Grand, have only not been indited in order that we might be the sufferers, Doubtless, the other channels of public information have equally received in the course of each week the surplus of what would have been, but for the Plumptre [Plump] and Ashley obstruc- [abstract- obstruction] tion, [ion] Sunday letters. The public are in arms, and every arm has a pen at the end every pen is dipped in the blackest ink of indignation, or is tinged with the milder tint of remonstrance. Our most desperate remonstrants are provincial post-office clerks; for it would appear that Lord Ashley's outcasts from Sunday society have a worse chance of being received into it now than ever. Their labours are in many cases so heavy on Saturday nights, that they are obliged to lie in bed during the whole of church time on Sunday, to recover from their fatigues, We select one from the heap, for publication. The writer gives a clear account of the hardships of a provincial post-office clerk before he was relieved from Sunday duty by the royal mandate - Sir,-For three years I was what you are pleased to call in your article on the 'Sunday screw' a post-office Pariah, at an office in a most 'corresponding' town my Sunday duties were as follows -At four I rose, sorted my letters and newspapers, delivered them to the messengers, sorted and stamped (both sides) the letters for the cross- [crescent] country mails, swept out and dusted the place, then I went to my room again, had a nap, rose, washed, and dressed in ay best I came down to breakfast at eight, took a walk, till Church time, and amused myself till five in the after- [afternoon] noon, when I attended at the office and received letters till half-past six. I usually attended divine service at eight I sorted and stamped the letters and dispatched the mails ; at nine I had done my work all this I did myself and never dreamed of being assisted. The rush of business is now, I understand, so great on the arrival of the Saturda [Saturday] afternoon mails, that every assistant and post-office cler [clerk] will wish Lord Ashley safely imprisoned in the Whited Sepulchres.-Your very obediently, Judging from the tone in which the earnest remon- [remain- remonstrances] strances [stances] from all kinds of peopie [people] that pile our tables are couched, we fear that, during the last few Sundays, the bulk of the disappointed public in the provinces has benefitted [benefit] very little by the change in a moral point of view. Vexation has, we fear, taken the place of that religious, calm, and beneficent state of mind in which the Sabbath ought to be passed. The object, therefore, of the promoters of the measure-increased veneration for the first day of the week-has failed for of course their whole and sole object in the affair has been the furtherance of the cause of religion, and not a desire to get quits with Mr. Rowland Hill for the calm, manly, triumphant manner in which he caused truth to vanquish them in the recent agitation on the same question.- [question] Dickens's Household Words. A Maw DevovureD [Delivered] By a Lion.-About three hours after the sun went down I called to my men to come and take their coffee and supper, which was ready for them at my fire; and after supper three of them re- [returned] turned before their comrades to their own fireside, and lay down these were John Stofolus, [Stools] Hendrick, and Ruyter. [Rutter] In afew [few] minutes an ox came out by the gate of the kraal, and walked by the back of it. Hendrick got up and drove him in again, and then went back to his fireside and lay down. Hendrick and Ruyter [Rutter] lay on one side of the fire under one blanket, and Joln [John] Stofolus [Stools] lay on the other. At this moment I was sitting taking some barley broth; our fire was very small, and the night was pitch-dark and windy. Owing to our proxi- [proxy- proximity] mity [city] to the native village, the wood was very scarce, the Bakalahari [Bulgari] having burnt it all in their fires. Suddenly the appalling and murderous voice of an angry, blood- [bloodthirsty] thirsty lion burst upon my ear within a few yards of us, followed by the shrieking of the Hottentots. Again and again the murderous roar of attack was repeated. We heard John and Ruyter [Rutter] shriek, the lion the lion still, for a few moments, we thought he was but chasing one of the dogs round the kraal, but next instant John Stofolus [Stools] rushed into the middle of us almost speechless with fear and terror-his eyes burst- [bursting] ing from their sockets, and shrieked out, the lion the lion he has got Hendrick he dragged him away from the fire beside me. I struck him with the burning brands upon his head, but he would not let go his hold. Hendrick is dead OGod [Good Hendrick is dead Let us take fire and seck [neck] him. The rest of my people rushed about shrieking and yelling as if they were mad. I was at once angry with them for their folly, and told them that if they did not stand still and keep quiet the lion would have another of us; and that very likely there was a troop of them. I ordered the dogs, which were nearly all fast, to be made loose, and the fire to be increased as far as could be. I then shouted Hendrick's name, but all was still. I told my men that Hendrick was dead, and that a regiment of soldiers could not now help him, and hunting my dogs forward I had every thing brought within the cattle kraal, when we lighted our fire and closed the entrance as well as we could. My terrified people sat round the fire with guns in their hands till the day broke, still fancying that every moment the lion would return and spring again into the midst of us. When the dogs were first let go, the stupid brutes, as dogs often prove when most required, instead of going at the lion, rushed fiercely on one another, and fought desperately for some minutes. After this they got his wind, and, going at him, dis- [disclosed] closed to us his position. They kept up a continued barking until the day dawned, the lion occasionally springing after them and driving them in upon the kraal. The horrible monster lay all night within forty yards of us, consuming the wretched man whom he had chosen for his prey. He had dragged him into a little hollow at the back of the thick bush, beside which the fire was kindled, and there he remained until the day dawned, careless of our proximity. It appeared that when the unfortunate Hendrick rose to drive in the ox, the lion had watched him to his fireside, and he had scarcely lain down when the brute sprang upon him and Ruyter [Rutter] (for both lay under one blanket), with his appalling murderous roar, and roaring as he lay, grap- [gap- grappled] pled [led] him with his fearful claws, and kept biting him on the breast and shoulder, all the while feeling for his neck, having got hold of which, he at once dragged him away backwards round the bush into the dense shade. As the lion lay upon the unfortunate man, he faintly cried, Help me, help me, O God men, help me after which the fearful beast got ahold [hold] of his neck, and then all was still, except that his comrades heard the bones of his neck cracking between the teeth of the lion. John Stofulus [stimulus] had lain with his back the fire on the opposite side, and on hearing the lion he sprang up, and a large flaming brand, he had belaboured him on the head with the burning wood but the brute did not take any notice of him. The Bushman had a narrow escape; he was not altogether scatheless, [scales] the lion having inflicted two gashes in his seat by his claws. The next morning, just as the day began to dawn, we heard the lion dragging something up the river-side under the cover of the bank. We drove the cattle out of the kraal, and then proceeded to inspect the scene of the night's awful tragedy. In the hollow, where the lion had lain consuming his prey, we found one leg of the unfortunate Hendrick, bitten off below the knee, the shoe still on his foot; the grass and bushes were all stained with his blood and fragments of his pea-coat lay around.

It is not truth that is perceived, but truth that is loved, that affects the heart and life. evangelical institution, and the laws of 1835 are desired to be cancelled. Dr. Dixon, the superintendent of the circuit, and chairman of the meeting, in giving expres- [express- expression] sion to his own opinions on the question, said, (we quote from the Watchman,- This question, he said, had divided Christianity almost from the beginning. He was anxious to find a ground of union and co-opera- [operation] tion [ion] between ministers and people, and had tried to look on the question practically. He was driven by facts to a deep and profound conviction that something must be done to bring parties into bonds of union, and had been looking at the matter for many years. Formerly, he had been rather an ecclesiastical tory [tor] than otherwise, and his leanings were to Episcopalianism rather than otherwise. Yet he believed that from the earliest times there had been a concurrent juris- [juries- jurisdiction] diction, the minister acting with the representatives of the flock. And why had there been those dis- [disturbances] turbances [disturbances 'We have acted without the concurrence of our officers.' Five preachers, he said, in a Minor District Meeting, were sure to confirm a sentence of expulsion pronounced by a preacher in his circuit. Then as to the concessions of 97, he could not under- [understand] stand them, nor could any one else. He believed, in- [indeed] deed, historically, that the delegates who consented to those concessions understood them just as many of tie gentlemen present in the meeting now understand harmony of our Connexion to be entirely hopeless. Our rule, he affirmed, stands alone in Protestantism. No church in Protestantism, he said, gives the minister the power of excision. Not the Church of England- [England] not the Baptist and Independent churches-not the old church of Scotland-not the Free church-not the American Methodist Episcopalian church-not the Ca- [Canadian] nadian [Canadian] Methodist church in America 'the matter ter- [te- terminates] minates [minutes] in the circuit,'and so in all the offshoots of Methodism in England. We stand alone-e may be right, but we are alone. Were our Leaders the right sort of men Yes. The power of expulsion would be safer if performed in conjunction with judicious men, with grave and pious men, with whom he should like to take counsel. He did not like a unit power, for he wanted to be kept right, or made right if he were wrong. And he thought he could exercise a legitimate ministerial influence. 'Is there no power in the pul- [Paul- pulpit] pit. 'Do I not preside at these meetings Is there nothing in presiding What, he asked, would a man want but to be the administrative organ of a number of Christians. Yet one of his brethren had said that he could not be a minister, if he could not expel members. For his own part he was not afraid of an adjustment, and our connexion must come to it, and what if, by our refusing an adjustment, 50,000 should go out of our way Colts beget Colts.' Matters,' he concluded by saying, will never settle, till you come to an adjust- [adjustment] ment. [men] -- - THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE. The excellent old Duke has left us. We are too apt to rate our public men only according to their political rank; but perhaps no one has helped more to teach us better than the Duke of Cambridge. On his return from Hanover, where he exercised a mild absolutism in fair weather, and went on his knees in political storms, there was the usual disposition to rate him on the exclusively political footing, and therefore to slight him. He left governing states, and found a more congenial calling in the government of charities and public dinners; and there was a dispo- [dis- disposition] sition [sit ion] to make merry with his vocation. Wits laughed at his unguarded and unreserved tongue, and at the absence of intellectual predications in that overflowing discourse; but the lightning did not seem to touch him; it did not make his shadow grow less, nor his good- [humoured] humoured countenance grow sour, nor his assiduity grow cold. For, as numbers will find out now, if they have not found it out before, the Duke was really useful. He made a good, honest, business-like use of his fellow- [fellow subjects] subjects. Few understood the minor duties of cadet Royalty better than he, or did more credit to his class as an efficient journeyman in its work. He knew that a Prince of the blood possesses by station many useful attributes, as an attraction to public dinners, as an ar- [arbiter] biter in the turbulent politics of charity committees, as a decoy to benevoleat [benefit] subscriptions; and he honestly employed those special attributes in a spirit of modest straightforward zeal to the best he could; and that best was really very good. His right Royal proportions of frame made him a magnificent figure for the head of a banquet-table; his venerable yet genial aspect was the type of a presiding genius for decorous conviviality. With a stout matter-of-fact conscientiousness, he used the influence of his Royalty to control a wide world of charity business for the benefit of the needy and the helpless. He not only figured as a decoy in subscription lists, but set an admirable example of paying his sub- [subscription] scription. [description] And he habitually exhibited respectability in its most engaging aspect, of a contented flourishing benignity. The Duke of Cambridge was the fugleman [gentleman] of society in the commoner civic virtues-a truly useful office excellently performed. Inspite [Spite] of the wits therefore society learned to respect its unpresuming, unpedantic, [pedantic] but practical guide, philosopher, and friend. People laughed at his accompaniment obligato [obliged] of unrestrained commentary to sermon and song, and duly recognised the exquisite commonplace of his set speeches; but they flocked to the dinners where he presided, they felt the justice for which he stood up, they esteemed his practical benevolence, they rejoiced in his hearty John Bull aspect, they enjoyed the dinner seasoned with his hearty voiced good wishes, they applauded his steady attention to his work, they liked him for his unfailing kindliness, they sympathized [sympathised] with him as a fine typical specimen of the Englishman, arrayed in all the glory of Royal station, and governed by the etiquette of constitutional manners. But he is gone. No more will that glad countenance expand over the festive board. No more will that rich voice be heard in the Opera-house, unfolding to the amused and not unadmiring [administering] listener the harmless and patent secrets of the Royal breast; no more will singer be cheered by the emphatic, and not undiscriminating certificate oral; no more will the Coldstream Guards parade in grand review with the most- [most magnificent] magnificent of full colonels at its head. Field Marshal the Duke of Cambridge, patron-general and chairman Royal of me- [metropolitan] tropolitan [Metropolitan] charity, King of the Opera-house, and -the prince of good fellows, has succumbed to the common lot. Not uncharacteristically. He attained to the three score years and ten, with a few to spare. He had led a life distinguished by the privileges, the enjoyments, but not by the licenses, of exalted station, He took things as he found them, and wished to make the best of what he found. He was conservative in opinions, if opinions he could be said to have, but liberal in his feelings. Fortune treated him kindly, and he did not encroach upon her favour, but returned the favour in kind; and his goodly countenance showed that his commerce with existence had been a happy one. The cordial, kindly bearing, which bore down pedantic criticism, forefended [defended] envy-no man grudged the good Duke his comfortable condition indeed popular regret now solaces itself with the recollection that he had a full allowance of life and and its good things.-Spectator. --- -- - AN EncuisH [English] CarpinaL.-According [Cardinal.-According] to the Tablet the dignity of a cardinal is destined for the Right Rev. Dr. Wiseman, and he will proceed to Rome in the month of August next. It is also stated that the Hon. and Rev. George Talbot has been summoned to the Holy City on the express invitation of the Pope, with a view to his appointment to a place of high trust near to the person of his holiness. A Lucky FELLow.-The [Fellow.-The] Echo de l Oise recounts the following bit of good fortune which has fallen to the lot of a young sailor named Laurendau. [Laurence] It appears that when only 14 years of age he was at Rouen, [Run] when he sawa [saw] young English lady fall into the river when landing at the quay. Laurendau [Laurence] jumped in, and was fortunate enough to lay hold of her, but being caught by the clothes by some of the ironwork of the vessel they both would have lost their lives had not some persons present released him witha [with] boat-hook. The mother ofthe [of the] young lady thanked him warmly, and made him a present, and also paid the expense he incurred in curing the wound he had received in his from the boat-hook. Laurendau [Laurence] had neither seen nor hea [he] anything more of the persons for 15 years, when afew [few] da since an English gentleman came to him, alluded to his act of courage, and in order to be certain of his identity had his leg examined by a medical man, who clearly recognized [recognised] the mark made by the-hook. When thus certain of his man, the Englishman told Laurendau [Laurence] that the young lady whose life he had saved wished to thank him in n, and to present him with an annuity for his life of 18,0008 ; and at the same time he gave him 500f. [f] to pay the expences [expenses] of his journey to London. The fortunate young man im- [in] mediately made his preparations and started, them. But, 'as the thing now exists,' he thought the h opulence; they never forgot the class from which they themselves had sprung, that of working men, whose hands had mainly contributed to their aggrandisement, and, therefore, they spared no expense in the moral, intellectual, and physical interests of their work-people. A brief anecdote or two will serve to show what manner of men these Grants were, and that Dickens, in his Brothers Cheeryble, [Cheery] has been guilty of no exaggera- [exaggerate- exaggeration] tion. [ion] Many years ago, a warehouseman published an exceedingly scurrilous pamphlet against the firm of Grant Brothers, holding up the elder brother to ridicule as Billy Button. William was informed by some cind mind] friend, of the existence and nature of the pamphlet, and his observation was, that the man would live to re- [repent] pent of its publication. Oh said the libeller, when informed of this remark, he thinks some time or other I shall be in his debt;-but I will take good care of that. It happens, however, that the man in business does not always know who shall be his creditor. It turned out that the libeller shortly became bankrupt, and the Brothers held an acceptance of his, which had been en- [endorsed] dorsed [Dorset] by the drawer, who had also become bankrupt. The wantonly libelled men had now an opportunity of revenging themselves upon the libeller, for he could not obtain his certificate without their signature, and without that he could not again commence business. But it seemed to the bankrupt to be a hopeless case to expect that they would give their signature-they whom e had so wantonly held up to public ridicule. The claims of a wife and children, however, at last forced him to make the application. He presented himself at the counting-house door, and found that Billy Button wasin. [wain] He William Grant, who was alone, rather sternly bid him shut the door, sir The libeller trembled before the libelled. He told his tale, and produced his certificate, which wasinstantly [was instantly] clutched by the injured merchant. You wrote a pamphlet against us once, exclaimed Mr. Grant. The supplicant expected to see his parchment thrown into the fire; in- [instead] stead of which, Mr. Grant took a pen, and writing some- [something] thing on the document, handed it back to the supplicant, who expected to find written upon it, rogue, scoundrel, libeller, instead of which, there was written only the signature of the firm, completing the certifi- [certify- certificate] cate. [care] We make it a rule, said Mr. Grant, never to refuse signing the certificate of an honest tradesman, and we have never heard that you were anything else. The tears started into the poor man's eyes. Ah con- [continued] tinued [continued] Mr. Grant, my saying was true, I said you would live to repent writing that pamphlet; I did not mean it as a threat, I only meant that some day you would know us better, and repent that you had tried to injure us; Isee [See] you repent it now. Ido, Ido, said the grateful man, I do, indeed, bitterly repent it. Well, well, my dear fellow, you know us now. How do you get on What are you going to do The poor man stated that he had friends who could assist him when his certificate was obtained. But how are you off in the meantime and the answer was that, having given up every farthing to his creditors, he had been com- [compelled] pelled [celled] to stint his family of even the common necessaries of life, that he might be enabled to pay the cost of his certificate. My dear fellow, this will never do, your wife and family must not suffer; be kind enough to take this ten-pound note to your wife from me-there, there, my dear fellow-nay don't cry-it will all be well with you yet; keep up your spirits, set to work like a man, and you will raise your head amongst us yet. The overpowered man endeavoured in vain to express his thanks-the swelling in his throat forbade words; he put his hand to his face, and went out of the door cry- [crying] ing like a child. In company with a gentleman who had written and lectured much on the advantages of early religious, moral, and intellectual training, Mr. Grant asked- [asked] Well, how do you go on in establishing schools for infants The reply was, very encouragingly indeed ; wherever I have gone, I have succeeded either in in- [inducing] ducing [during] good people to establish them, or in procuring better support to those that are already established. But I must give over my labours, for, what with printing bills, coach fare, and other expenses, every lecture I de- [deliver] liver in any neighbouring town, costs me a sovereign, and I cannot afford to ride my hobby such a rate. He said, you must not give over your labours; God has blessed them with success; He has blessed you with talents, and me with wealth; if you give your time J ought to give my money. You must oblige me by taking this 20 note and spending it in promoting the education of the poor. The 20 note was taken, and so spent; and probably a thousand children are now enjoying the benefit of the impulse that was thus given to a mode of instruction as delightful as it was useful. Mr. Grant was waited on by two gentlemen, who were raising a subscription for the widow of a respect- [respectable] able man, who, some years before his death, had been unfortunate in business. We lost 200 by him, said Mr. Grant, and how do you expect I should subscribe for his widow Because, answered one of them, what you have lost by the husband does not alter the widow's claim on your benevolence. Neither it shall, said he; here are five pounds, and if you cannot make up the sum you want for her, come to me, and I'll give you more.' Many other anecdotes, equally characteristic of the kind nature of William Grant, could be added. For fifteen years did he and his brother Charles ride into Manchester on market days, seated side-by-side, looking of all things like a pair of brothers, happy in themselves, and in each other. William died a few years ago, and was followed to the grave by many blessings. The firm still survives, and supports its former character. Long may the merchant princes of England continue to fur- [furnish] nish [ish] such beautiful specimens of humanity as the now famous Brothers Cheeryble. [Cheery] - oo A Case oF SEDUCTION.-At the Abingdon Assizes, on Thursday week, before Lord Campbell, an action was brought by a small farmer and publican, named Bristow, against a gentleman of fortune named Harford, for the se- [seduction] duction [Auction] of the plaintiff's daughter. Damages were laid at 1,000. The case created considerable local interest, in consequence of the rank and position of the defendant, who is a member of one of the wealthiest families in the county, and was formerly an officer in the 10th Regiment of Foot, and sold out when his regiment was ordered to India. The laintiff [plaintiff] was a man in humble circumstances, who had been a farm-bailiff to several gentlemen of respectability, and who farmed about eleven acres of land, and kept a. beerhouse [beer house] at Water Oakley, about three miles from Windsor and Maidenhead. The defendant, since he had retired from the army, resided with his mother, who was described as a widow lady of large fortune, who kept a car- [carriage] riage [ridge] and pair, and a large retinue of servants, at Lown- [Low- commonplace] place, close by the plaintiff's house. The defendant kept hunters, and drove out generally in a dog-cart, with a groom. In 1846, he entered into a sort of partnership with the plaintiff, for the purpose of dealing in cows, calves, igs, [is] &c.; and this partnership continued up to last year. e plaintiff, not being able to read or write, employed his daughters to keep the accounts, and while engaged in this pursuit the daughter Anne became enamoured of the de- [defendant] fendant, [defendant] who promised her marriage at his mother's death, in case she would yield to his wishes. The result was the birth of a child, which was duly affiliated on the defendant, and an order of 2s, 6d. a week made for its maintenance by the magistrates. The present action was therefore brought to obtain compensation for the loss of the daughter's services, and also for her seduction. For the defence it was shown, with apparent probability, that the father did not keep the most correct household, and from this it was in- [inferred] ferred [erred] that the daughter's way of life had been question- [questionable] able before and since the defendant became acquainted with her.-Lord Campbell, in summing up, recommended a ver- [Rev- verdict] dict for loss of services, but expressed his disapproval of the loose manner in which defendant had regulated his house- [household] hold, by allowing dancing parties of an objectionable character to be there held, and at which it was pretty evi- [vi- evident] dent that a laxity of morals prevailed, of which the plain- [plaintiff] tiff's own daughter was no doubt one among many other painful examples of their evil tendency. A verdict for the plaintiff, with 10 damages, was returned. EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDES IN NEWGATE.-On Saturday two inquests were held in one of the prisoners' dining- [dining rooms] rooms in Newgate, by Mr. W. J. Payne, deputy-coroner, and a jury of twenty-three citizens. The first was on the body of Daniel Blackstaff [Black staff] Donovan, aged thirty-three, an ex-pugilist the second on the body of Walter Watts, also aged thirty-three, recently clerk in the Globe Insurance- [Insurance office] office, and formerly lessee of the Marylebone and Olympic theatres. On Friday Donovan was tried at the Central Criminal Court, and sentence of death recorded against him and the same day the deceased Watts was brought up for judgment and sentenced to ten years' transporta- [transport- transportation] tion. [ion] alter Watts, by some means, had obtained posses- [possession] sion of a piece of rope, with which he suspended himself from the roof of the water closet. Donovan committed the act of self-destruction by causing strangulation with his pocket-handkerchief, in the temporary absence of the pri- [pro- prison] son watcher. A verdict of temporary insanity was returned in each case, Rigidly so, rigidly so. Lord S. Wherefore all this self-denial Some may inquire, some may inquire. Mr. M. Oh, it is a painful trial, Bitter and dire, bitter and dire Lord S. Sunday letters we Mr. M. Having arrested, Lord S. Our consistency Mr. M. Must be attested. Both. Strictly thus by keeping Sunday, Rigidly so, rigidly so. STANDING FOR A SEAT IN PARLIAMENT, It seems that there are only seats for three hundred members in the New House of Commons, whereas six hundred atleast [at least] are required. This deficiency of accom- [com- accommodation] modation, [moderation] however, can easily be overcome. We are always enjoined to rise with every difficulty, so we propose that Baby Jumpers be provided for those who have not seats and if that is not rising with a difficulty, we do not know what is Whenever a member (the Member for Ayr, suppose we to occupy the floor of the House, the Serjeant-at-Arms [Sergeant-at-Arms] would take him off the hooks, and hook him up again as soon as he had finished. A new appointment would have to be made- The Silver Hook in Waiting. We hardly know how the members sitting underneath would like this new arrangement. For instance, we cannot imagine it would be very pleasant to the feelings of Lorp [Lord] Jonny, when he was making a long speech, to know that DisRaELI [Disraeli] was hang- [hanging] ing over his head, ready, the moment he had finished, to drop into him. But then, again, the plan would be attended with certain conveniences; for how easy it would be for Lorp [Lord] Joun, [John] if he felt (or Upper BrEnsaMin, [Benjamin] as he must be called after his new elevation) had taken the unfair advantage of him, to rise, as soon as he had resumed his seat in his Baby Jumper, and gently pull him down, so saving himself and the House the fatigue of another long speech. We hope to hear of an early sitting being appointed to try, in a full house, this experiment of the Baby Jumpers; if three hundred are run up, we should say it would be sufficient. - -- THE ECONOMICS OF SMOKING. BY JOSEPH FUME, The man who smokes half his cigar, and puts the remainder by, knows nothing about smoking. The man who carries no cigar-case has no right to levy contributions on those who do. Never buy a cigar at a chemist's, they are sure to remind you of their origin. I once knew a chemist, who also sold wine and cigars, and I am sure he could only have had one workshop for his three businesses, and that was his laboratory. Mistrust the tobacco that is given in half-payment of a bill. Such dealers may be clever in drawing a bill, but itis [its] rarely that their cigars are distinguished for being good drawers. The man who smokes with wine is quite capable of taking sugar with oysters. RicHMOND's [Richmond's] Horse and Riper.-Among the horses that ran at the Liverpool July Meeting, we observe The Duke of Richmond's Vampyre. [Vampire. A strange race- [racehorse] horse this,-an old hobby long ridden by his Grace; but the waggish reporter has changed the animal's name, which is really Protection. We are confirmed in this opinion by the fact that the name of Vampyre's [Vampire's rider is stated to be Flatman [Footman] A FAIR SPORTING OFFER.

In proof of our honesty, we append to this present article the name of the writer, and, though it is the most modest of our rich collection, still, it may be taken asashining [astonishing] sample of the veins of sterling metal that run like so many undiscovered streams of Californian gold, through our columns.

And this House is further of opinion that the nickname of Jack KEtcH [Sketch] commonly applied to the Finisher of the Law is injurious and insulting not only to that Officer himself, but to the Wisdom of Parliament. And this House resolves that the said Officer, instead of being called Jack Ketcn, [Ketch] ought respectfully to be styled Mr. Catcrart, [Carat] or whatever else his proper name may be, and held in all due esteem and consideration accordingly. An anecdote was told of Sir Robert Peel soon after the French Revolution of February, 1848, which, for the light it throws upon his general course and motion of action. is well worth reproduction now. On the night the news ar- [arrived] rived of that revolution, a popular member of the House of Commens [Commons] had occasion to consult him on some parliament- [parliamentary] ary [art] business and this finished, made an allusion to what had just taken place in France. These, said he, are start- [startling] ling times the events in France are startling. They are, replied Sir Robert Peel. 'This comes of ruling by mere ministerial majorities the men at my back would have me pursue the same course, but I knew better AssizE.-The [Assizes.-The] commission for Ruilandshire [Lancashire] Was opened on Saturday, at Oakham Castle, before Baron Platt. For the second time within two years there was a maiden assize, and the judge received from the sheriff a pair of white gloves. The learned baron, in addressing the grand jury, entered into the statistics of crime throughout the country for the last six years, and drew a very favour- [favourable] able comparison for Rutland. At the conclusion of the c e the business terminated, and the judge left for Nort [Not pton [ton] to open the commission there.-Daily News. M. Thiers [This] received 24,000 for The History of the Consulate and the Empire, several volumes of which are et unwritten.

It is said that the pope is about to confer on the King of Naples the title of Most Religious King, on account of his devotion to the Holy See. Sir Alexander Spearman, formerly Assistant Secretary to the Treasury, succeeds the late Mr. Higham, as Secretary and Comptroller of the National Debt office. Among the causes to be tried at the present assizes is an action by James Richardson, Esq., solicitor, against the Yorkshirveman [Coachman] for defamation. The origin of the action is to be found in the railway exposures of last year.

The Duke of Wellington, at his late audit for Strath- [Strathfieldsaye] fieldsaye, [fields aye] Kingsclere, Banghurst, [Bursting] &c., made an abatement of fifteen per cent. to his tenantry, in consequence of the great reduction in the price of all agricultural produce. The Prince of Thurn [Turn] and Taxis, the great postmaster of Germany, has consented to prohibit throughout all the branches of his monopoly the conveyance of every journal that is prohibited by the post-office of Prussia. Captain the Hon. G. F. Hastings, of the Cyclops, has been recently cast in 5,000 damages by the Slave Com- [Commissioners] missioners on the coast of Africa, for illegal detention of a Portuguese ship. A Scotch paper mentions that two fishing boats, manned by thirteen men and boys, have not returned to the Stennis [Tennis] station, in Northmaving, [Nothing] whence they sailed on the 10th ult., and no hope of their safety is now entertained. The Hon. East India Company has granted an allowance, during life, of 100 per annum, to the gallant Major Her- [Herbert] bert [best] Edwardes, [Edwards] in consideration of his eminent services and the loss of his right hand. FIRE at Bristot.-A [Bristol.-A] destructive fire broke out on Mon- [Monday] day night at the floor cloth manufactory of Messrs. Ware and Co., Temple Meads, Bristol. At least 2,000 damage has been thus occasioned. The Wakefield Town Council, at a recent meeting, voted unanimously an address of condolence to Lady Peel. This is about the first unanimous vote passed by this council since its creation some two years since. BULWER, [BULLER] THE NOVELIST.-A tory [tor] newspaper of Lincoln- [Lincolnshire] shire says that Sir E. Lytton [Letting] Bulwer [Buller] is to be candidate for that city, in tacit alliance with Colonel Sibthorp, [Thorpe] at the next election. Bulwer [Buller] came out as a strong protectionist at a recent meeting in his own county of Herefordshire The Sherborne Journal says thata [that] young man named Toogood has lost the use of his right arm, froma [from] violent electric shock given to him by a person who was deliveri [delivery] a lecture on electricity and galvanism, in the Natio [Nation] School-room, Wookey. A correspondent of the Manchester Guardian, says, 'Sir Robert Peel (the father) was born at Peel Close, in Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire, in the year 1750. His eldest son and successor died in the year 1850, exactly a century afterwards a strange While a Thames steamer was leaving Dyer's Hall Pier on Thursday week, a young man who had been sitting on the ier [er] entangled his leg in the rope used for mooring the hoa, [ho] and before it could be extricated the rope drew his leg round and actually cut it off. Mr. William Pope, of Exeter, has invented a Smoke Consuming Apparatus, which, in its application to the purposes for which it is designed, is said to have proved very successful. The inventor affirms that by its use in the navy a saving of fifty per cent. can be effected. THE Mayor or SoutTHampton [Southampton] has invited the Lord Mayor of London to a grand banquet, in return for his lordship's hospitable entertainment a few weeks ago at the Mansion House to encourage the great Industrial Exhibi- [Exhibit- Exhibition] tion. [ion] The Lord Mayor has accepted the invitation. Lieutenant Gale has regained his balloon, which he has re-christened the Royal Normandy, in commemoration of his trip across the Channel. This daring zronaut [front] ascended from Cremorne [Cretonne] Gardens on Monday night, about half-past ten o'clock, discharging a shower of fireworks from the car. From a statistical document recently published, it seems that the population of France is nearly 36,000,000, while the census of 1700 made the population 19,669,000. Thus it appears that France has not quite doubled her population in 150 years, whilst some other countries of Europe have doubled their population in less than half that period. A DiIssENTERS' [Dissenters] COLLEGE.-The academy at Newport Pagnell, for the education of dissenting ministers, or, as it has been called of late years, Newport Pagnell College, is about to be broken up. It is said to have been founded by the Rev. Mr. Bull, the Rev. John Newton, the poet Cowper, and others, in 1780. As the mail train of the Great Southern and Western Railway of Ireland was on its ge from Cork to Mallow on Sunday night, some scoundrel, standing on one of the bridges, heaved an immense stone, which dashed through the guard-box but, fortunately the guard was not in his place at the time, or he must have been killed. A shocking tragedy has occurred at Memphis, Tennessee, owing to a dispute in a court of justice about the assets of abank.
