FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. returned 4 ident, [dent] as stated in our last, re ed from bis tour on Thursday. A third tour to the ecntre [centre] and south of France was talked of, but has been officially contradicted in the Moniteur, [Monitor] it being alleged that the season is too far advanced. An animated debate took place on Thursday in the of permanence. The subject is said to have been an expression in the President's speech at Cher- [Cherbourg] bourg, [burg] in which he promises to support the Paris and Cherbourg Railway, if the inhabitants of the military port will aid him io enlarge the authority of the execu- [exec- executive] tive. [tie] General Lamoriciere [Maurice] is said to have drawn the attention of his colleagues with much earnestness to the danger of ailowing [allowing] language so undisyuisedly [undisguised] ambi- [ami- ambitious] tious [Titus] and unconstitutional to pass without rebuke or demand of explanation from the government. The amount expended at Cherbourg, during fifteen days, is cstimated [estimated] by the Paris prints at over 3,000,000 ncs. [ns] ; From a synopsis of the resolutions of the. Councils General of the departments, respecting a revision of t ie constitution, it appears that thirty-three departmen [department] have not pronounced for the revisiun, [revising] oF have 2 a nounced [announced] against it; thirty-three are in favour of a leg revision; thirteen demand the revision, without ex plaining on what conditions they desire to see 1 six demand it imediately; [immediately] making a total of ony [on ' e. semblee [Ambler] Nationale [National] states that the re de the Prince de Joinville, [Corneille] and the Duke d 'Aumale, [d 'Male] have written a collective letter to General Changarnier, [Changing] to testify to him, in the name of the Queen, as well as of themselves, their gratituae [gratitude] for the religious service which he caused to be celebrated in the chapel of the Tuileries [Distilleries] for the repose of the soul of Louis of the Paris papers speak f the reconciliation of the two branches of the house of Bourbon asa fait [fair] eccompli, [accomplish] and appear toanticipate [to anticipate] important results from that event, The Siecle, [Circle] however, says that there is, after all, a likelihood of the preject [reject] being defeated, owing to the unswerving opposition of M. Thiers, [This] whose influence over the mind of the Duchess of Orleans is known to be very great. Baciocchi, [Scotch] 'Aide de-Camp of the President, has con- [conveyed] veyed [eyed] to the Ambassador of Nepaul [Paul] a splendid sword, mounted in carved gold, as a present from the President of the Republic. He bore, at the same time, an myl- [my- mutation] tation [station] to tiie [tie] Prince and his brothers to accompany the President to a grand review, which is to take place within a few days at the Champ de Mars. The Jesuits push their superstition, or rather effron- [offering- effrontery] tery, [try] so far as to point out the dangerous illness of the Queen of the Belgians as a judgment for having married a Protestant prince. According to them the fatal accident of the Duke of Oricans, [Organs] and the premature extinction of the talented princess Marie, are visitations of the wrath of Heaven for having contracted Protestant marriages, 2nd hence they draw dark augurics [augurs] as to the issue of the sickness of the Belgian queen. The Prefect cf the Sarthe [Hearth] and the Council-General have opened a subscription for the erection of a bronze statue to General Negrier, [Nearer] who was killed in the insur- [insure- insurrection] rection [section] of June, 1848. The Minister of Marine, Admiral Romain-Desfossés, [Roman-Diseases] is on the point of retiring from the cabinet, in order to take the command of a division in the Levant. The Lvexement [Casement] reports that a political congress is to be held at Brussels, at which the que tion [que ion] of the fusion ef the two Bourbon branches will be fully discussed. The town of Charges, in the Hautcs [Hats] Alps, has been destroyed by fire. The Monitiur [Monitor] (French ministerial organ) denies that any agent has been sent to England by the Minister of War for the purchase of horses for the French cavalry, and that any horses have been purchased for that object. DENMARK AND HOLSTEIN. We have received the Hamburg papers of Saturday last, and the London journals contain Hamburg corres- [cores- correspondence] pondence [prudence] of the same date. The chief intelligence consists in accounts of some rather severe skirmishing between the Holsteiners [Holstein] and Danes on the 12th instant, in consequence of the Holsteiners [Holstein] having made a great reconnaissance. The Holsteiners [Holstein] advanced in consider- [considerable] able force on their right, pushing back the Danes, who retired before them without making any serious stand, and ultimately passed the Schlei [Scale] at Missunde. [Missed] Their entrenchments on the other side of the Schlei [Scale] were found to be of such strength as completely to command the approaches, and render it impossible for the Hol- [Ho- Holstein] steiners [Steiner] to force them, unless at the cost of an immense number of lives. Some firing had taken place during the Holsteiners' [Holstein] advance, and the Holstein field pieces exchanged some shots with the guns in the Danish works on the other side of the Schlei. [Scale] After this cannonade had lasted about an hour and a haif, [Haigh] the Holstein guns were withdrawn, and the Holsteiners [Holstein] began to retire. The Danes then replaced the bridge over the Schlei, [Scale] which they had previously removed, and crossed in order to harrass [Harris] the retreat of the Hol- [Ho- Holstein] steiners, [Steiner] but found them so strong as to render it unad- [and- advisable] visable [visible] to press them closely. Meanwhile, some rather heavy firing had taken place at Eckernférde, [Confide] which was entered by the Holsteiners, [Holstein] without experiencing any Serious resistance. Tle [Te] Danish ships of war lying in the harbour began to throw both shot and shell into the town of Eckernférde, [Confide] where several houses were burned, and the place was soon evacuated by the Holsteiners. [Holstein] The Holstein troops before commencing their retrograde movement, set fire to the huts which had becn [been] occupied by the Danish troops encamped at Rochendorf [Rochester] and one er two other places; and they then retired to points somewhat in advance of their previous positions, where they bivouacked. On the following morning, they re- [reoccupied] occupied the positions which they had held before their advance towards the Danish line, and no further move- [movement] ment [men] was made. The total loss of the Holsteiners [Holstein] during these affairs is stated by the Hamburg journals to have amounted to 129 men killed and wounded, in- [including] cluding [including] five wounded officers. About 50 Danish pri- [pro- prisoners] soners [Somers] are said to have been taken, but no estimate of the Danish loss is attempted. In Hicu [Hick] Lire.-The marriage of Sir Thomas R. Gage, Bart., and Miss Drammond, [Drummond] daughter of Mr. Drummond, M.P., and Lady Harriet Drummond, took place on Monday last. The marital solemnity was first performed according to the ritual of the Roman Catholic Church, at the Spanish Chapel, and subsequently at St. Peter's Church, Eaton-square. e marriage of Viscount Eastnor, M.P., eldest son of the Earl Somers, and Miss Prinsep, [Princess] which was to have been solemnised at the same time, has been postponed for a few days. The nuptials of Miss Vernon, daughter of the Right Hon. R. Vernon Smith, M.P., and Mr. Woodhouse Currie, eldest son of Mr. Raikes [Rakes] Currie, M.P., is to take place in the course of the present month, at the Right Hon. R. Veraon [Vernon] Smith's seat in No champtonshire. [Northamptonshire] StncoLar [Scholar] Conpuct [Conduct] oF a CLERGYMAN.-On Thursday the 5th instant, the remains of a respectable woman were taken to East Witton Church, near York, for the pu of interment, attended by a number of her relatives and friends, The corpse was taken into the church, and the officiating curate commenced reading the psalms. He paused once or twice during the reading, observing a lady sitting, who, when she perceived this, immediately stood up, and he then finished the psalms. The psalms finished, and he commenced the epistle, when he stopped and left the reading-desk. He had peiceived [received] the mourners with their hats on (which is the evstom [esteem] at this place), and ab- [abruptly] ruptly [reply] left the church, leaving the momaers [mummers] aud [and] their fiends ina state of anxiety as to the result. He was re- [remonstrated] monstrated [demonstrated] with, but did not return to complete the service, and ordered the corpse to be taken to the grave. He then went and read the episitle [epistle] and finished the service, but with what spirit we leave the judge. His conduct called forth expressions of shame, and one of the relatives of the fainted. Great excitement was caused by this curious and unaccountable conduct of the clergyman. The eceased [deceased] was a highly-respectable person, and occupied an extensive farm within a mile of the church, and was much Fr The deceased was a regular attender at this ehureh, [here] when her duties permitted her.- [her] Yorkshirenan. [Yorkshire] Mr. R. Stephenson has reported to the directors of the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway that it would be inexpedient to diminish the arca [ara] of the Grimsby docks, as first proposed. After going through several plans of reducing their cost, he comes to the conclusion that a present saving of 46,085 might be effected, but that a clear toss of 22, 865 would be entailed whenever the dock had to be completed to the size originally contemplated. TELEGRAPHS IN AMERICA.- [AMERICA] The Ohio, Indiana, and Hiinois [Honours] Telegraph Company has now tak2n [taken] a new organisa- [organist- organisation] tion. [ion] Itis [Its] one of the mcst [most] extensive lines in the world, and has now a thousand miles in working order. Such is the extension of the telegraph system in the thinly peopled countries of the far west, while it can hardly be said that the telegraph is in general work in this country. The an- [announcement] nouncement [noun cement] of the length held by one company in the ee States ought to be an encouragement to operations THE Potato DiszasE [Disease] IN NorTH [North] WaLES.-The [Wales.-The] potato i although it has appeared in many districts, and ected [acted] large breadths of land, does not appear to have extended itself with the virulence and rapidity which ac- [accompanied] eompanied [accompanied] its ravages in former years. The crops are spoken of favourably, and in many places the tubers are perfectly sound and healthy. In consequence of the large extent of ground planted this year, it is highly probable that the yield will be much larger than at first was antici- [anti- anticipated] pated, [pate] notwithstanding the loss ecazioned [examined] by the blight. A NEw [New] CoMET.-Mr. [Come.-Mr] Charles Robertson, of Mr. Cooper's private observatory, Markree-castle, [Remark-castle] Ireland, detected a new comet in the constellation Camelopardus, [comports] about mid- [midnight] night, on the 9th inst.

His inspection and reports are to be completed within a fortnight, when three government commissioners will visit the harbours. ; A New Popctazion [Population] Act For IRELAND.-There is a separate act of parliament for taking the census in Ire- [Ireland] land. The census in Great Britain, it will be recollected, is to be taken on the 31st [st] of March, of all persons living in the house on the preceding night, and by the act relating to Ireland (13 and 14 Vict., [Vice] cap. 44) it is directed that the account shall be taken by the consta- [constant- constabulary] bulary [burglary] force as the Lord Lieutenant shall order, with other competent persons on the 8lst [last] of March, and one or more consecutive days. Some of the clauses are similar to the Population Act for England. Parties are liable to penalties for giving false answers or obstructing the officers in obtaining information. In taking the census in Ireland it is expressly declared that in the instructions to be filled up no reference shall be made to the religion of any person or persons. Lorp [Lord] CLarenpon [Clarendon] tv Utsrer.-The [Reuters.-The] Lord Lieutenant has been travelling through Ulster, and was received in Belfast with great enthusiasm. His public entry was a scene of great rejoicing, and he subsequently visited the the public institutions, including the Linen-hall, the General Hospital, the Ragged School, the principal flax mills, the School of Design, and the Academical Institu- [Institute- Institution] tion. [ion] In the course of his progress addresses were pre- [presented] sented [scented] by the corporation, the members of the Flax Society, and the children of the Ragged School, to all of which his excellency made suitable replies. The great event was, however, a banquet given in the Music Hall, over which the Mayor presided, and at which the Lord Lieutenant made a long speech, highly complimentary to Belfast, and hopeful for the future of Ireland. THe [The] CaTHoLic [Catholic] Synop [Synod] at THuRLES.-The [Thurs.-The] Synodical a 'ldress [a 'dress] of the fathers of the National Council of Thurles [Thurs] to the Catholics of Ireland, has been published in the form of a pamphlet. Four-fifths of the document is devoted to an onslaught upon the government colleges, which are condemned root and branch. The council state their determination to make every effort in their power to establish a sound and comprehensive system of university education, and a committee has been appointed to carry this project into execution. To the address are appended three Papal rescripts, ad- [addressed] dressed at various periods to each of the four archbishops in Ireland. EXxTRraorDInaRy [Extraordinary] ActTion.-A [Action.-A] casc [case] is still in progress before the Lord Chief Baron, in the Nisi [Nos] Prius Court, Dubiin, [Dublin] which is quite remarkable on account of the length of time it has occupied. Itis [Its] an insurance case, in which a person engaged in trade claims 2,700 for losses by fire, and two companies contest the claim, as being in excess of the injury suffered. Twenty- [Dentist] cight [eight] days have already been occupied, owing to the intricate and complicate nature of the evidence. One of the jurors having died since the trial commenced, both parties agreed to go on with eleven jurors. One of the counsel, Mr. Armstrong, has been attacked by illness, and the judge himself has suffered from an affection of the throat. The charge of the learned Chief Baron has occupied six days, and the case has again been postponed until Monday next. The jurors are to be paid one guinea a day each for their attend- [attendance] ance.- [once.- once] Mercantile Advertiser. SINGULAR anD [and] Fata [Fatal] Accripent.-Mr. [Occupant.-Mr] Thomas Kelly, brewer of Oranmore, [Memoranda] county of Galway, against whom there was a warrant of arrest, from the Court of Ex- [Exchequer] chequer, for penalties incurred for having illicit malt, at the prosecution of the officers of excise, on Tuesday last, betook himself to hide in one of the stooks [stocks] piled by his own reapers and on his son and friends proceed- [proceeding] ing to the spot some short time after, they found him a corpse, having been smothered. There was a reward of 50 for his apprehension.- [apprehension] Dublin Evening Mail. THe [The] Bear anp [an] THE Lamsp.-A [Lamps.-A] melancholy circum- [circus- circumstance] stance occurred on Tuesday, at the Zoological Gardens. A pet lamb, distinguished for its beauty, attached him- [himself] self to some visitors by following them to the retreats of the beasts kept for the inspection of the curious. At length he pursued them to the place where the large bear has his residence, and playfully paced backward and forward outside the iron rails, when the grim monster came cautiously forth, and without any one imagining his purpose, extended the paw through the bars, and fastened on the unfortunate lamb. In vain was every effort used at the moment by the visitors, and afterwards by the servants of the committee, to rescue the sufferer; the lamb was dragged bleating into the interior of the den, where no one dared attempt to enter.- [enter] Dublin Evening Mail.

EXTRAORDINARY CasE [Case] oF Witcucrart.-The [Autocrat.-The] King's County Chronicle contains the following astonishing instance of credulity and imposture A poor little girl, aged six years, named Maryanne Kelly, daughter of Thomas Kelly, a resident of this town, has been for six months past in a dying state, under the care of the dis- [dispensary] pensary [Dispensary] physician. An old hag, who professed to be one of these rare characters, a 'fairy woman,' persuaded the parents of the child that it was 'fairy struck,' and offered to cure her if they would comply with her direc- [direct- directions] tions. [tins] To those terms they agreed. The child was to be placed on a shovel at night, in the name of the d-l, after having a prayer or invocation in the same name said over it. In the course of the night the mother was to say to her, Maryanne, if you are able to come in, do so. This was done for three nights in succession, on the last of which the child died, a victim to the credu- [cured- credulity] lity [city] of its father and mother. While enduring the cold of the nights, the cries of the little sufferer were most piteous; and who can but wonder that a woman, and that woman a mother, should not be by the distressing cries of the child of her bosom, who was an idiot, had been born blind, and although six years of age, had never walked On Sunday last Mr. O'Meagher, [O'Meagre] coroner, held an inquest on the body of the child. Bridget Peters, the 'Fairy doctress,' [doc tress] and Mary Kelly, the mother of the deceased, were present, in custody of the police. The first witness produced was Mary Meher, [Her] who stated that the 'Fairy woman' administered herbs in milk to the child, and said that it did not belong to Mary Kelly, as it was a fairy; Mary Kelly's own child she represented as having been taken away by the 'good people;' she also stated that she would either 'kill or cure' the child. She blistered the child, and steeped it in water, after which she put the child out on the shovel in the air, for three nights. The child cried, and called to its mother to bring herin. [Heron] The 'Fairy woman' used to say to the child, 'Maryanne, get up, and come in.' The mother and she helped the child in. The doctress [doc tress] said that on the last night the child would be very black, as there would be some fairies beating it ; and that she would either live or die after it. The wit- [witness] ness also added that 'the witch' had been in the house of the mother of the child for several wecks [weeks] for the pur- [our- purpose] pose; and that she heard Mary Kelly, the mother, say to the doctress, [doc tress] 'Why don't you do it quick On the third night the witness, who was a servant in the house was ordered to put out the child on a shovel, and, having refused was discharged. Another woman, named Mary Whitford, deposed that she had heard Bridget Peters, 'the Fairy woman,' say that she had stuped [stupid] the child three times, and had given her 'verbena and fox- [foxglove] glove.' The coroner charged the jury, who returned a verdict of manslaughter against both prisoners, who were then committed to gaol to abide their trial at the next assizes at Nenagh. [Nina] ar CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY ELECTION.-The opposition to the return of Mr. Cowling, as member for the University, has at last taken a definite shape, and active steps are now taking here to secure the return of Mr. Loftus Wigram, Q.C., of Trinity College (8th Wrangler, 1825.) Meetings to facilitate this result have been held, and resolutions passed pledging those present to support the return of Mr. Vigram, [Gram] who has been invited, aud [and] consented to stand a contest. It is understood that Mr. Wigram is opposed to allowing any but Christians to legislate for a Christian country to all schemes which do not regard a man's reli- [deli- religion] gion [Gin] as the mosi [moss] important part of his education to refus- [refuse- refusing] ing to members of the church in Ireland the facilities for availing themselves of educational grants which dissenters and Romanists enjoy in England and also to the provi- [prove- provisions] sions [Sons] of Mr. Stuart Wortley's Marriage Bill. He is oppcsed [opposed] to the experimental policy of free trade; to the recog- [recon- recognised] nised [Aniseed] admission te our universities of students who could not be required to join in the common worship, or submit to the religious teaching of the university; and in general to any course of policy not animated by Christian prin- [pain- principles] ciples.

ON OF MADLLE. [MIDDLE] JENNY LIND AT RECEPTI [RECEIPT] NEW YORK. (Abridged from. the New York Tribune. ) Madlle. [Middle] Jenny Lind arrived at New York, on Sunday afternoon, the Ist [Its] instant. The excitement of the peo- [pro- people] ple [le] appears to have been very great, and her welcome enthusiastic. The writer in the Tribune gives us the following account. After describing the appearance of the steamer, the Atlantic, he says-On the top of a light deck-house, erected over the forward companion- [companionway] way, sat the subject of the day's excitement-the veri- [very- veritable] table Jenny Lind-as fresh and as if the sea had spared. her its usual discomforts. At her side stood M. Jules Benedict, the distinguished composer, and Signor Giovanni Belleti, [Belle] the celebrated basso, her artistic com- [companions] panions. [pains] Mr. Barnum, who had by this time climbed on board with a choice bouquet carefully stuck in the bosom of his white vest, was taken forward and pre- [presented] sented [scented] by Captain West. But Mr. Collins had for once stolen a march on him, having got on board in advance, and presented Miss Lind a bouquet about three times the size of Barnum's. Mdlle. [Middle] Lind and her companions were charmed by the fresh and changing prospect. She pronounced New York bay the finest she had ever seen, and her time was spent in scanning the shores with ao glass. Seeing the American flag flying at the Quarantine, she said, There is the beautiful standard of freedom the oppressed of all nations worship it. Signor Belleti [Belle] exclaimed in rapture, Here is the New World at last- [last the] the grand New World-first seen by my fellow-country- [countryman] man, Columbus Notwithstanding the wind blew a small gale, Madlle. [Middle] Lind remained on the wheel-house, observing every thing with great curiosity and delight, till the ship was made fast at the pier. As we passed Castle Garden, a Swedish vessel-the Maria, which ar- [arrived] rived on Sunday from Gefle-lay [Gel-lay] in the stream, with the national flag-at the gaff. The Nightingale recognised it at once, and waved her handkerchief to the sailors on ard. [ad] As we neared Canal-street pier, the interest was in- [increased] creased by the spectacle of some thirty or forty thousand persons congregated on all the adjacent piers and ship- [shipping] ping, as well as all the roofs and windows fronting the water. The Atlantic ran past the pier as she came up, turned and went down stream some distance, and then glided slowly into her place. Some little time elapsed before she could be made fast and the gangway adjusted. The immense crowd was kept away from the immediate neighbourhood of the vessel by the gate across the pier, inside of which about fifty persons had been admitted. Mr. Barnum's carriage, with his pair of beautiful bays, was in readiness at the foot of the gangway. Just inside the gate, a number of triumphal arches of evergreens and flowers had been erected. The first arch, fronting the water, bore the inscription, Welcome to Jenny Lind after which came another, with the American Eagle in the centre, and the words, Jenny Lind, wel- [well- welcome] come to America, in large letters around the span. The landing place, from the steamer to the gates, was over- [overhung] hung with the stars and stripes, with the flags of various other nations tastefully disposed on either side. As soon as Captain West had conducted Madlle. [Middle] Lind tothe [tithe] gangway, the rushcommenced. [rush commenced] Madlle. [Middle] Ahmansen, [Hansen] with Messrs. Benedict and Belleti, [Belle] followed, and all four took their seats in the carriage, Mr. Barnum mounting to the driver's place. The crowd inside the gates im- [in- immediately] mediately surrounded the carriage, clinging to the wheels and crowding about the windows, cheering all the while with an enthusiasm we never saw surpassed. When the gate was opened the foremost ranks of the multitude outside were forced down upon the floor, and those behind, urged on from without, were piled upon them till a serious loss of life seemed-inevitable. The spectacle was most alarming; some forty or fifty persons lay crushed by the inexorable crowd, stretching out their hands and crying for help. In the midst of this tragic afiair [affair] we could scarcely restrain a laugh at the sight of a man, lying squeezed under the mass and hardly able to breathe, holding out his new hat at arm's length, and imploring somebody to take it and prevent it from being smashed. After a while the crowd were driven back, and we are happy to say that little or no injury had been occasioned. The carriage containing the freight of song was started with difficulty, owing to the enthusiastic crowd around it. Mdlle [Middle] Lind and her cousin, Mdlle. [Middle] Ahmansen, [Hansen] oc- [occupied] cupied [occupied] the back seat; the former bowed repeatedly as she passed through the gathered thousands. More than 200 bouquets were thrown into the windows. Once clear of the throng, the carriage was driven off rapidly, and succeeded in reaching the Irving House, without allowing the people in the streets time to collect. The block around the Irving House was filled with a dense mass of people, with heads upturned, gazing at the different windows, many of which were graced with ladies; but Jenny was not among them. At last she appeared at one of the parlour windows opening on Broadway, and there was a general stampede to geta [gate] sight of her. She bowed repeatedly, and kissed her hand in answer to the cheers. About eleven o'clock, p.m. the Musical Fund Society, consisting of about 200 instrumentalists, struck up several national airs under the windows of Madlle. [Middle] Lind's apartment. They were joined by a large com- [company] pany [any] of firemen in their red shirts, and with their tall lanterns, making a very picturesque group. Madlle. [Middle] Lind appeared at the window, where she was received with a perfect storm of shouts and cheers. She waived her handkerchief to the company and withdrew; but cheer on cheer followed, and she was obliged to appear again and again, till the reluctant throng was finally obliged to disperse. On Monday, at twelve in compliance with the unanimous wish of the guests of the Irving, Mdlle. [Middle] Lind received them in one of the splendid parlours of the hotel. The ladies and gentlemen, more than 500 in number, all paid their respects to the gifted Swede. The occasion was exceedingly pleasant and interesting. During the voyage, notwithstanding the heavy head seas which the Atlantic went through, Mdlle. [Middle] Lind escaped without any other sign of sea sickness than a slight headache, which lasted only a day. Messrs. Bene- [Been- Benedict] dict and Belleti [Belle] also enjoyed the same rare exemption from that terrible sensation which the ocean exacts for its penalty. On the third day out, the Atlantic encountered a most violent gale which lasted for several hours, during which she proved herself a first-rate sea boat. On the fourth day the nightingale treated the company with a few of her enchanting strains; and on the following day it was intimated that she would feel happy to give her services at a concert for the benefit of the sailors and firemen, which was scarcely told than the sub- [subscription] scription [description] ran up to 64. In the evening she sanga [sang] programme of the highest order, and as an addition she made the amount up to a considerable sum, which was distributed to the men. A subscription was also set on foot to present Captain West with a piece of plate asa token of the esteem of those on board, to which Jenny was a liberal donor. Many characteristic anecdotes are related of the fair songstress in the course of the voyage, of which the following is worthy of notice. One day, overhearing one of the engine hands singing a song in his rude way, she insisted that he should sing it from beginning to end, for her benefit. The sturdy seaman willingly complied, whereupon she produced four guineas, which she gave him as the price of her ticket. This is the story as it was told us. We understand that Midlle. [Middle] Lind will accept the in- [invitation] vitation [invitation] of G. G. Howland, Esq. and spend a few days at his summer residence on the Hudson, near Fishkill, Messsrs. [Messrs] Benedict and Belleti [Belle] will probably remain for the present at Irving House.

PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT OF CosTUME.--Some [Costumes.--Some] of the leading artists of England, as well as many amateurs and admirers of the fine arts, consider that the forthcoming exposition in Hyde Park would be a fitting opportunity of discussing the subject of costume. Artists, and all persons of true taste, have long complained of the inelegance and and incongruity of English and other costumes. Painters and sculptors uently [until] had recourse to the costume of the ancients, in order to avoid the difficulties which that of the present time throws in their way when delineating the human figure. A declaration has been drawn up, em - ing the above and many other collateral points. which has been numerously signed by some of our leading artists. They express a hope that some general European costume might be indicated by such a course.-Globe.

EXECUTION OF PROFESSOR WEBSTER AT BOSTON. ; (Abridged from the New York Tribune of the 3rd instant. ) Professor Webster has this morning paid the last debt of nature, and the law is now satisfied. Yesterday after- [afternoon] noon his amiable wife and three intelligent daughters visited him in his cell. They were with him the usual time-from two o'clock until about half-past six. They appeared the same as usual. Singular as it may appear, we were assured by the officers of the prison that they parted with that husband and father ignorant of the fact that they would never see him again alive We saw them as they passed out of the prison, and we are as fully satisfied that such was the case as we are of anything within the compass of human judgment. During the night preceding his execution the unfortu- [unfortunate- unfortunate] nate [ate] man conversed freely with his attendants, confining himself strictly to moral and religious subjects. He read the Bible and other books with a great degree of earnestness and sincerity. He conversed and read until twelve o'clock, when he laid down upon his cot, spread upon an iron bedstead, and slept until half-past four this morning, apparently as sound and restful as under ordinary circumstances. He frequently spoke of his family, and seemed to be quite happy to know that they were all religiously inclined. He briefly spoke of his execution, and repeated the passages of Scripture, If it be possible let this cup pass from me, yet, not my will, but Thine, O Lord, be done. On arousing from his slumbers, he engaged in devo- [dove- devotional] tional [national] exercises by prayer and reading of the Scriptures. He was as calm as the sunny and almost breezeless [breeze less] morning. Shortly before eight o'clock on the morning of the execution, all the arrangements having been previously made, the scene around the gaol, upon the tops of the private dwellings, was of the most revolting character. Planks were laid across the roofs of the houses in the neighbourhood, on which were ranged thousands of spectators, who are represented to have paid extrava- [extra- extravagant] gant [ant] sums for a good view. The Rev. Dr. Putnam arrived at the gaol about half- [half past] past seven o'clock, and immediately proceeded to the prisoner's cell, where devotional exercises were held. At half-past nine o'clock Sheriff Eveleth [Evelyn] summoned to the rear office of the gaol those gentlemen who he had requested to be present as witnesses, and there read to them the order of what was to follow, together with the duties devolving upon his several deputies. From the gaol office, the sheriff, supported by Depu- [Deep- Deputies] ties Rugg [Rug] and Freeman, proceeded to the cell, followed by the witnesses and other deputies, where an impressive and eloquent prayer was offered by the Rev. Dr. Putman, [Pitman] he being the only officiating clergyman present. No other services were held. The prisoner, during prayer, was in his cell in a kneeling position. After prayer we had an opportunity to see Professor Webster in his cell. We had not looked upon him since the day he was sentenced. He was greatly altere l [alter l] for the better. We never saw a more healthy looking man than he appeared to be. His countenance was much more pleasant than when he was upon his trial. Shortly after, at twenty minutes past nine o'clock, High Sheriff Eveleth, [Evelyn] attended by Deputies Coburn, Freeman, and Rugg, [Rug] Mr. Andrews (the gaoler), Mr. Holmes (the turnkey), and the prisoner, accompanied by Dr. Putnam, came out and ascended the platform of the scaffold, the prisoner taking his position upon the drop. Dr. Putnam immediately entered into earmest [earnest] con- [conversation] versation [conversation] with Professor Webster, and continued to do so through the reading of the governor's warrant by the sheriff, and until gaoler Andrews stepped forward to pinion the legs of the prisoner, when the Doct [Dock] r shook the Rev. Mr. Putnam affectionately by the hand, bade him a final earthly farewell, expressing at the same time the hope that they should meet again in heaven. The usual formalities having been gone through, the bolt was withdrawn, and after the culprit had given several struggles, it was found that life was extinct. The last audible words of Professor Webster, as the cap was drawn over his eyes, were, Father, into Thy hands I commend my spirit. After remaining some thirty minutes, Drs. [Dr] Stedman and Clark pronounced the body lifeless, when it was lowered into a black coffin, and conveyed back into the same cell where, in the full vigour of manhood, it had but a short time before trod. The dress of the condemned on ascending the scaf- [scarf- scaffold] fold, was a black frock coat and pants. His neck was without cravat or handkerchief. After the body had been placed in the coffin his features appeared as in life, without distortion, and there was nothing but the purple hue of the flesh to show that his death had been a violent one, and that was fast disappearing. The Boston Journal, in addition to the above, says that during a great part of the day before the execution the prisoner occupied himself with setting aside little memorials for those few friends in whose charitable feelings towards him, when he was gone, he might hope. He selected a number of his books and wrote in them the names of several persons towards whom he wished to express some recollection of past obligations and favours. He seemed to take much interest in this occupation. The announcement that the family of the late Profes- [Profess- Professor] sor [Sir] John White Webster were in ignorance of the day on which he was to suffer the extreme penalty of the law was discredited by most persons, while those having the best opportunity for judging were perfectly satisfied of its truth. Immediately after the execution, on Friday, the Rev. Dr. Putnam proceeded to the residence of Mrs. Webster, and imparted to her and her afflicted children the sad intelligence that her husband and their father was no more. The solemn and deeply painful scene which ensued should be veiled from the public gaze. The remains of Professor Webster were conveyed on Friday evening to the residence of the family, whence they were removed on Sunday, in as private a manner as possible, to Mount Auburn, and deposited in the family tomb on Narcissus Path. The Boston Bee says It is said that Professor Webster made no detailed confession to go before the public. He has talked freely on the subject of the murder with different individuals, but always with the promise from them that they would not make anything public. The Rev. Mr. Waterston [Watson] received a very long and very singularly written letter from the professor before his death, and several other clergymen received similar letters. For some days before his death Professor favourite reading, next to the Bible, was in Channing's works. He also found much to soothe him and gratify his religious and literary taste in Bowring's Matins and Vespers,' and in Longfellow's collectian [collection] of hymns. The Boston Herald says It was one of the last requests of Professor Webster of the sheriff, that his body should not be seen, sketched, or touched by any professional man after death. Sheriff Eveleth [Evelyn] gave his promise, and has faithfully kept it, although many artists from this city and New York visited the gaol for the express purpose of doing so. One gentleman came from Cincinnati for the purpose of taking a cast of the professor's countenance; he, with others, were uniformly refused, and the body was not allowed to be seen or examined by any one after it was taken down from the gallows. The largest bell, it is said, ever cast in Ireland has just been completed by Mr. Murphy, of Dublin, bell-founder. The weight is upwards of two tons, and it is intended for a Catholic church, at Newfoundland.- [Newfoundland] Builder. At a meeting of the Birmingham freehold union, held on Friday afternoon, William Scholefield, Esq., M.P., in the chair, it was unanimously resolved that the conference should take place early in November.

A Wooer 1n At the Central Police Court, Glasgow, on Monday morning (week), John Mackin- [Making- Mackintosh] tosh, a mason, was brought before the sitting magistrate, Baillie [Bailey] Bogle, [Bole] ona [on] charge of assault and breach of the peace. It appears that the defendant, who was paying his addresses to a servant girl with a spirit dealer in Glebe-street, was in the premises of the latter on Saturday evening, on his accustomed errand. His stay appears to have been pro- [protracted] tracted [traced] beyond the usual time, so much so that it was necessary to conceal from the knowledge of the spirit dealer himself that any one was in the house. Footsteps were heard approaching, and the lover hastily concealed himself in the kitchen bed, but, as it proved, too late to escape discovery, the master and another male friend having pounced upon him and dragged him to light. The mason in the emergency acted with rather more valour than dis- [discretion] cretion.

DEATH OF LIEUTENANT GALE, THE AERONAUDT. [AROUND] We briefly announced, in last week's Chronicle, the untimely end of the above gentlemen, and now proceed to give such further particulars as we are enabled to glean from the French journals, relative to the cireum- [cream- circumstances] stances under which Mr. Gale has terminated his earthly career. A Bordeaux journal, the Courrier [Courier] de la Gironde, [Ground] of Wednesday, gives the following details of the death of Lieut. Gale Mr. Gale, who ascended from Vincennes, at a quarter past six, descended at a quarter past seven, in the commune of Cestas, [Stances] on a narrow spot of ground situated between the property of M. Palanque [Plane] and that of M. Balguerie. [Algeria] Seven or eight peasants, who were at work in the neighbourhood ran and laid hold of the balloon, the grapnel of which had caught hold of a fir tree. In a few moments the balloon was lying quietly on the ground, and the horse was disengaged. The legs of the poor animal were completely benumbed, and it immediately lay down. It soon afterwards, how- [however] ever, recovered itself, and rising up began to eat grass, as if nothing had happened. At this moment the wind was blowing rather fresh, and the balloon, which the efforts of the peasants could scarcely restrain, having been freed from the weight of the horse, acquired a con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] ascensional force. Mr. Gale, who was very quick in his movements and very impatient, gave direc- [direct- directions] tions [tins] to the peasants, which were but badly understood by them, as he spoke in English. The aeronaut [Argonaut] had quitted the car, and was engaged in fastening some ropes of the balloon which had served to attach the horse, when, from some order misunderstood by the peasants, they let go the rope which held the balloon. The balloon, thus freed, ascended in a perpendicular line, and the branch of the tree to which the grapnel had fastened broke. At this moment Mr. Gale, who was standing up, was thrown down into the bottom of the car by the shock. This fall, added to the escape of gas caused by the prodigious ascensional force, must have stunned, and suffocated the unfortunate man, for he was not seen to rise afterwards, and he was no more visible to the people assembled. The balloon, in this second ascen- [ascent- ascension] sion, went about two miles, but what took place during that period no one can tell. A peasant of Cestas [Stances] pre- [pretends] tends that, as the balloon was passing over a fir grove, he distinguished the aeronaut [Argonaut] lying down in the car, his head hanging over the side with the tongue pro- [protruding] truding [trading] from the mouth, as if he had been suffocated. If such be the fact, a slight shock would be sufficient to have thrown him out of the car, and this account appears the more probable, as a hole was made in the bottom of the car, through which Mr. Gale ascended when leaving the horse. We must, for the sake of the truth, mention that, at the moment of his first ascent, Mr. Gale was noi [no] perfectly sober he had taken more than his usual quantity of spirituous liquor, and his state of excitement was such that My. Clifford was alarmed, and proposed to ascend in his stead. This proposition was, however, rejected, and Mr. Clifford expressed his appre- [paper- apprehension] hension [Hanson] to several persons present. At eight o'clock, the son-in-law of M. Lestrange [Strange] found in a field the plume of white feathers with which the head of the horse had been ornamented, and which Mr. Gale had taken off it and stuck in his own cap. On receiving this information, some persons, Mr. Clifford amongst the number, went to the place where it was expected Mr. Gale would have come down in the commune of Cestas, [Stances] and after a long search, the balloon was found in a ficld [field] beyond the Croix-d'Hink, [Croix-d'Ink] still half full of gas. It was not torn, and everything was in its place, but no trace of the aeronaut [Argonaut] could be found during the evening. After some investigations, and as the night was far advanced, Mr. Clifford proposed to empty the balloon, and to carry it back to Bordeaux, thinking that Mr. Gale, not seeing any one near at the time of his descent, left the balloon to go in search of assistance in some of the houses near, and where he would stop for the night. Enquiries were, however, made at some of the houses, but no one had seen him. On the following day (Mon- [Monday] day) the searches for him were resumed, but without avail. On Tuesday, the Procureur [Procure] of the Republic received a letter from M. Pelanque, [Plane] stating that the body of the unfortunate man had been found on his estate at Cestas. [Stances] It appeared that at break of day an inhabitant of the commune, in taking his cows to their pasture, saw one of the animalt [animal] proceed to a clump of ferns, and begin smelling as at something lying there. He went to the spot, when he was horrified at seeing the body of a man, the face completely eaten away by dogs and wild animals and the limbs in a broken and mutilated condition. The place where the body was found was upwards of a mile from where the balloon had been discovered. Information was immediately given to the proper authorities, and they proceeded to the spot and drew up a process yer- [verbal] bal [ba] of the affair, and the body was carefully removed. At eight in the evening it was taken to Vincennes, preparatory to its being interred. The Memorial Bordelais [Bottles] of the same day gives a some- [somewhat] what different account of the cause of the death of Mr. Gale. It says At nightfall Mr. Gale effected his descent between Pessac [Passage] and Martignas. [Martin's] He hastened to release the horse from the ropes which attached it to the car, and by his expressive gestures (for he could not speak French) he explained to the peasants who had assembled that they were to keep fast hold of the ropes which held the balloon. When he supposed that his wishes were understood, Mr. Gale again got into the car, in order to open the valves and empty the balloon as promptly as possible. Finding some part of the cordage impede his movements, he drew a long knife from his pocket to cut it, when the pcasants, [presents] not knowing the use he was going to make of the weapon, and alarmed at his excited manner. all at once let go their hold. The bal- [ba- balloon] loon, relieved from the weight of the horse and a por- [or- portion] tion [ion] of the ballast, then rose again with prodigious rapidity, carrying with it the unfortunate aeronaut [Argonaut] sus- [suspended] pended by his hands, which clutched one of the ropes. The position was frightful. Only the energy of despair could have prolonged it for a few instants. Mr. Gale no doubt must have soon lost his hold and fallen from a great height. The remains of the unfortunate Mr. Gale were interred on Wednesday, in the Protestant cemetry [cemetery] at Bordeaux. A large crowd attended the funeral, among whom were many English. An official investigation, made by the Mayor of Caudera, [Carders] confirms the dctails [details] of the fatal acci- [acct- accident] dent previously given. It is stated that on Friday and Saturday Mr. Gale was exceedingly low spirited, and was discovered wecping. [keeping] When asked what was the matter with him, he replied that he could not tell, but felt sick at heart. On Sunday (the day of the ascent) he was more cheerful. His last ascent was the 114th he had made. Mr. Clifford, director of the Hippodrome at Vincennes, has organized [organised] a balloon ascension for the benefit of the deceased's family. Mr. Clifford, his wife, and the Messrs. Goulson, [Coulson] proprietors of the balloon, are to go up together. Mr. Meller, one of the principal inhabitants of Bordeux, [Border] has commenced a public sub- [subscription] scription [description] for the family. The conduct of Mr. Clifford, who is, it appears, an Englishinan, [English] has, according to the Bordeaux journals, been remarkable for kind feeling towards Mr. Gale before his fatal accident, and for benevolence towards the family since his death. ee EXPLoits [Exploits] IN Fisainc.-Our [Franc.-Our] townsman, Mr. J. W. Las- [Lascelles] celles, [cells] has recently returned from a fishing excursion in Norway.
