[BULL] Goeeck [Geek] meets Greek then comes the tug of war When Bull meets Bull we look for many a scar; But when this war of Bulls will end, We know not; Must we be gored by foreign Bulls we trow not Now Pius's Bull has given John Bull a kick, Which Lord John Russell calls a Bullish trick , And hurls defiance at the Bull from Rome, But owns we have more dangerous Bulls near home. archbishop Wiseman calls it Heaven's delight, and says the Archangel Michael hails the sight d all the minor angels join to raise 4 joyful concert in sweet songs of praise, prime Minister of Heaven (quoth Wiseman) Prince 'of Saints, How thou dost chuckle at these grand events. holy Martyrs,' too, look down and smile To sce [se] once more restor'd [restore'd] to our blest [best] isle The only true religion upon earth- [earth the] The only passport to their blissful berth ; While Lucifer and Luther-scourge of men- [men must] Must hide themselves in thcir [their] infernal den. See how all true Protestant Bishops tremble See how the minor clergymen assembie, [assembly] And wring their hands, and cry What must be done With this great scarlet whore of Babylon Imploring royal petticoct [petticoat] assistance, To make a manly, stout, and brave resistance.

Those who have lost an infant are never, as it were, without an infant child. The other children grow up to manhood and womanhood, and suffer all the changes of mortality; but this one alone is rendered an immortal child; for death has arrested it with his kindly harsh- [harshness] ness, and blessed it into an eternal image of youth and innocence. A Woman's ADvAnTaGes.-A [Advantages.-A] woman may say what she likes to you, says an American journal, without the risk of being knocked down for it. She can take a snooze after dinner, while her husband has to go to work. She can dress herself in neat and tidy shoes for a dollar, which her husband has to earn and fork over so her. She can take a walk on a pleasant day without the fear of being asked to treat at every cuffee-house [coffee-house] the passes she can paint her face, if too pale, or flour it, if too red; she can stay at home in time of war, or wed again if her husband be kilt. She can wear cor- [costs] scts, [acts] if too thick, and other fixins, [fixing] if too thin. A CHoIcE [Choice] oF PUNISHMENT.- Withdraw the plea of not guilty, and take the one of guilty to the felony, continued the assistant barrister, taking a pinch of snuff, and turning round to consult his brother magis- [magic- magistrates] trates [rates] as to the term of intended incarceration. Don't lose yer time, yer omadhaun [Omdurman said the attorney, with an angry look at the prisoner. Will I be allowed to spake one word yer wortchips [worships said the unfortunate culprit. What has he to say said the assistant bar- [barrister] rister, [sister] with considerable dignity. Go on, ye fool ye urged the attorney. My lord, yer wortchips, [worships] and gin- [contain] tamin [tain] of the jury, exclaimed the culprit, sind send] me out o' the counthry, [country] or into jail. or breakin' [breaking] stones, or walkin' [walking] on the threadmill, [treadmill] or anything else in the coorse [course] o' nature, as yer wortchips [worships] playses [places] but for the love o' the Virgin Mary, don't make me a Poor law garjin.' [grain] -Houschold [Household] Words. . A Notion For 1851.-For [W.-For] a genuine novelty commend us, by all that is ingenious, to our transatlantic cousins, We saw an American rat-trap once, in which the first rat that was caught, in trying to make his escape, reset the trap for the benefit of his fellow-rats, and we thought the idea a good one. But it must yield the palm to another recently patented, which is thus described by the inventor, who, we imagine, will produce something that will be a caution to us Britishers in 1851 -' [W] My invention consists in a trap constructed in such a manner that the rat which looks at a bait shall see his Own image reflected by a mirror in such a position as will lead him to believe that a second rat is endeavour- [endeavouring] ing to get before him in seizing the bait; and when the first rat has been caught, his image will also be reflected by a mirror, so that the next rat that shall look at the bait, shall see two rats apparently striving to seize it, thus decoying him upon the turning floor, which yiclds [colds] to his weight, and precipitates him into the body of the trap. -The Artizan. [Artisans] CaEESECAKES.-Boil [cascades.-Boil] a quart of milk, pour it quite hot into a basin, and mix well with it a tablespoonful of runnet. [runner] In about an hour break up the curd, drain off the whey, and spread the curd on the back of a sieve till it is quite free from liquid. Dissolve a couple of ounces of powdered sugar in an ounce and a half of butter, then add the yolks of a couple of eggs, a glass of sherry, and a quarter of a nutmeg, grated; have an ounce of currants well washed and picked let all these be now mixed with the curd; line the pattypans [patty pans] with light paste, pour the mixture into each, and bake in a slow oven for twenty-five minutes. A Doc.-The Albany KnickerLocker [Knickerbocker] boasts that it has in its office a dog that will lick any dog in the States for nat'rl sagacity. It belongs to one of the carriers, whom it accompanies in his round of delivery of about six hundred papers. The carrier fell sick, but said his dog would do duty for him. And sure enough itdid, [outdid] A boy, carrying the papers, followed the dog, which stopped and wagged his tail at the house of every Subscriber, never missing one of the whole six hundred. At the doors of subscribers who had not paid for their papers for a length of time, the dog was heard to how . VoLUNTaRYIsM [Voluntary] AND NationaL [National] Epvcation.-We [Evacuation.-We] are uot [not] called to enter into a discussion of the abstract question of the connexion between the state and the School but one thing is certain, that the theory which Nigidly [Nightly] identifies voluntaryism [voluntary] in religion with volun- [voluntary- vulgarism] aryism [arise] in education is fallacious. Neither the con- [Continental] tuental [mental] nor the American voluntaries-by the former of whom the system has been presented in its most philosophic garb, and by the latter reduced toa [to] practical Teality-have [Reality-have] deemed it essential to the realisation of the principle which they hold in common with our- [ourselves] Selves, that its application should be extended beyond walls of the sanctuary. The same may be said of the Scottish voluntaries, the overwhelming majority of Whom, some time since, did not scruple to homologate Holgate] plan which tends to make the school as much a Political institution as the police-court. For this, among other reasons, therefore, we are not disposed to regard a infallible the dictum of those who tell us that the Separation of the state from the school is invariably and ch y the complement of the separation of the from the state. The question, as it appears to 18 simply one of propriety and expediency, which mst [ms] be determined according to circumstances.- [circumstances] Christian Times, -- MILITaRyY [Military] PLUNDER IN i the following brief tives [lives] at the Austrian that in time great The 9th, at dawn, the regu- [reg- signal] signal was given with trumpets; After a regiment had plundered, it was recalled and relieved by another. The Russians not only plundered, but flogged the citizens indiscrimina [indiscriminate] tely. [rely] The latter plundering regiments tore the boots from the feet of the inhabitants, stripped them of their clothes, leaving them scarcely a shirt. The last band, furious at finding no more valuables, committed the most atrocious cruel- [cruelties] ties; they demanded money, and as the inhabitants had no more to give, they were tortured. The officers plun- [plum- plundered] dered [deed] with the privates. The last regiments came armed with bars and perches, and destroyed everything which could not be carried away. Not a chair, not a table, not a door remained unbroken; they cut the feather beds and flung away the feathers; they carried tway [way] in waggons the contents of the premises they bounced open the cellars, drank as much as they could, and when they could drink no more they broke the barrels that the wine might run out. In their intox- [into- intoxication] ication [action] they committed such beastly excesses that even the Russian officers unable to restrain them, lamented the misfortune of the citizens. There is no pen to describe the dreadful fate of the women; no age was Spared by the intoxicated ruffians. The plundering lasted the whole day; the town was during this time Surrounded by the Russian army, nor issue any one. -The Defenceless Si i Britain, by Sir F Head. celess [less] State of Great . Hore [Horse] ror [or] Yet.- [Yet] Sir Roger passeth [passes] away Yes the country gentleman living in the midst of his tenantry as a father anda [and] friend, beloved by the poor, administering justice with a heart ever alive to mercy, not learned, perhaps, but full of noble qnalities [qualities] and warm affections, surrounded by old servants whose fore- [forefathers] fathers lived in the service of his ancestors, is a type almost effaced Where should he now find a place in these days of railways and electric telegraphs, and thoughts that shake mankind in days of instantaneous communication, of universal education; when right divine has become a myth, loyalty a conclusion of prudence, ignorance a disgrace, war a costly delusion ; politics no more a juggle of parties, but a sphynx-like [sphinx-like] riddle of social problems; the landed interest a new race who buy their ancestors of a picture dealer, ready made the middle class a force of government, the lower orders a rising power. Let us not sit down to whine over the dead past. Nations have their solemn destinies to fulfil, even as the individual hath, and in the unknown and mysterious developments to which humanity is slowly but surely advancing through the dust of ages, as to a transformation, there may be grander issues than were ever dreamed of by the phillosophy [philosophy] of that exploded science, miscalled political. The landed interest may become in time a distinct class no longer, but a universal people, whose title deeds shall be the rights of regenerated man. We shall then have ex- [exchanged] changed authority for liberty; division of classes for fusion of interests; competition for peaceful co-operation. In the meantime, let us not, as Englishmen, refuse our love and reverence to the grand old name of gentle- [gentleman] man, which once represented the strength, and virtue, and independence of our country. The ignorances and prejudices of the squirearchy, against which it is so popular to inveigh, were of their age; their sterling worth knew how to make England glorious and free. As long as our noble English tongue remains embalmed in the history, the laws, the literature, the religion of two words, this picture of simple faith, truehearted [treated] loyalty, frank and affectionate courage, rare simplicity of manners, active and unostentatious [ostentatious] charity, will remain to be the delight and the admiration of all time. -Literary Gazette. LIEUTENANT WaGHORN [Wagon] AND HIS Wipow.-When [Widow.-When] the question of Lieutenant Waghorn's [Wagon's] general services was brought forward, the government proposed in parlia- [Parliament- parliament] ment [men] a grant of fifteen hundred pounds; expressing at the same time a wish that the East India Company would come forward with the like sum. The directors, how- [however] ever, preferred converting the grant into a life annuity, and fixed it at two hundred a year. Nor was this all. Mr. Waghorn's [Wagon's] name was afterwards placed on the civil list by order of the Queen, for two hundred per annum. The state of the fund was, however, such, that the pen- [pension] sion could not then (1848) [W] be formally granted; but in order that Lieutenant Waghorn [Wagon] should sustain no loss from this circumstance, a payment was made during the first year of 200 out of the royal bounty. The account, therefore, as between Lieutenant Waghorn [Wagon] and the ministry, and East India Company, stood thus in 1849, when his career unhappily closed -Besides having been paid 4,000 for disbursements in opening the Trieste route, Lieutenant Waghorn [Wagon] had obtained a gratuity of 1,500, and a life pension of 200 a year, together with the first payment of another life pension for the likeamount. [like amount] We, in common with many of our contemporaries, appear to have certainly overstated (on authority we could not at that time doubt) the extreme destitution of Mrs. Waghorn. [Wagon] Mr. Waghorn [Wagon] had but recently married; and when at his death a pension was asked for his widow, only 40 of the small annual fund at the disposal of the government applicable for such a purpose remained unappropriated. To grant the whole of this while Mrs. Waghorn [Wagon] was already in the receipt of fifty pounds a year as the widow of a naval lieutenant, and fifty pounds per annum besides from the East India Company, was thought hardly just. Consequently, only twenty-five pounds per annum of that balance was at first promised but when the pension year was nearly at an end, the other fifteen pounds were added. Even Mrs. Waghorn's [Wagon's] friends thought this enough, and she now stands on that list for forty pounds per annum, her entire income being thus made up to one hundred and forty a year.-Dickens's Household Words. RaGcED [Raged] ScHoots.-A [Schools.-A] week or two ago we drew atter- [utter- attention] tion [ion] to the Ragged Schools of York and since cur re- [remarks] marks appeared, we have received from that city a lengthened account of the rise, progress, and principles of that institution. It is a history full of encourage- [encouragement] ment [men] to those who look with trust on the modern trial to reach the long-neglected pariahs of our civilisation. The principle adopted is that advocated by the Atheneum [Athens] from the beginning of the movement-the mixture of school teaching with industrial training. Some visits made to the Ragged Schools of London during the last few days have confirmed our old conviction- [conviction that] that with- [without] out some kind of labour it is impossible to obtain from the ordinary routine of the school-room those results at which benevolence aims. First to be recognised, and foremost to be remembered, is the fact, that the chil- [child- children] dren [den] who attend our ragged classes have no honest means of livelihood spelling and writing will not keep out hunger, thirst, and those other daily necessities which urge the non-producing classes to prey on the more upright and industrious. Society must look this fact in the face. At one of the ragged schools in the neighbourhood of Field Lane, we were told of a curious incident-the sadder that it makes us smile. We think we have seen it before in print. A clergyman went to the school one Sunday evening to address the larger class of boys. There was a good attendance, and he addressed the children on the sanctities of the Sabbath and the penalties of a life of crime. He thought he had made a powerful impression on his hearers and was about to conclude with a suitable peroration, when, as the minute finger of the clock touched the five minutes to eight mark on the dial, the whole audience rose, and without a word left the room. The teachers followed in surprise and overtaking one of the urchins in the street, asked where he was going. To work, was the brief reply. To work Why, don't you know this is Sunday asked the religious instructor. Of course, said the lad, and aint [aunt] the folks just a goin' [going] to come out of chapel The clergyman was enlightened ; after his persuasive discourse, as he thought, the audi- [aid- audience] ence [once] had risen to pick pockets To our minds, a cir- [circumstance] cumstance [cum stance] like this wears another besides the merely discouraging aspect. It shows that our method of deal- [dealing] ing with these outcasts is still imperfect. In the task to be accomplished sermons will go but a little way-a rougher and more practical work must first be done. If a child asks for bread, it is useless to offer him a stone, even though tie stone be a precious one. It cannot be eaten. So far from trying to ignore this elementary fact, the York committee make it the foundation of their system. They teach tiicir [cir] pupils how to work at honest labour and they prevent the necessity for that other kind of work, for which the Field Lane con- [congregation] gregation [creation] rose betimes in the evening, by allowing to each pupil certain meals a day, on fixed and proper conditions. Attention is first devoted to the rags of the scholars; he or she is taught to sew and cobble. The rags in time become adress. [address] For a few months the school enjoyed the great advantage of having an adjoin- [adjoining] ing field to cultivate, with, as we are assured, the best results. Unfortunatcly, [Unfortunately] the field has been required for building purposes, and the school is now without the important elements of agricultural industry. Mr. Myers will do well to urge on the attention of his col- [colleagues] leagues the necessity of having a piece of ground at- [attached] tached [ached] to the new school.-Atheneun. [school.-Heathen] Process OF SOLDIER-MAKING.-While a recruit who has just joined the army is apparently only learning- [learning very] very much against his will-how to hold the back of his head up, his chin in, and especially to keep his mouth shut how to stand with his thumbs uncomfortably touching the seams of his trousers how at the word of command to advance, in goose-step, with his left foot- [foot] to turn to the right, left, right about, left about, halt, eyes right, eyes left, stand attention, and finally at ease, by which time he is usually sick unto death of the whole incomprehensible process-his mind is undergoing an invisible change namely, by following the will of his drill-sergeant instead of his own, he is learning obcdience. [obedience] After having been taught, through- [throughout] out various marchings [machines] and countcr-marchings, [country-machines] always to touch his left-hand man, by which simple arrangement the squad is kept compactly together, he is instructed in the dexterous use of his musket, which he learns, first, to carry without injuring his comrades, and then, within his small allotted space, to load, prime, and make ready, present, fire, fix bayonets, and charge. In the course of about six months' instruction of this sort, he is usually reported competent to the ranks, and after about six months' regimental drill he may be con- [con] sidered [resided] a young scldier. [soldier] By experience the various fecl- [fell- feelings] ings which animate our young soldiers become subject to self-control. The habit of command on one side and of obedience on the other begets not only mutual con- [confidence] fidence [confidence] between officers and men, but on the part of the latter that determination to obey, fearless of all conse- [cone- encouraged] the spirit of es orders they receive, without waich [which] the evolutions [evolution] of an army cannot possibly be directed. And as it is impossible for the human mind, for any length of time, to continue under violent excite- [excitement] ment, [men] so by repeatedly going into action soldiers learn to view with indifference the various scenes to which they are exposed. In sudden attacks, especially from cavalry, they learn that to be steady is to be invincible ; and they, therefore, in self-defence, strictly obey the orders of the officers. By degrees they feel proud of their power and of their profession; and thus they eventually become what are justly termed, old sol- [soldiers] diers. [tiers. tiers] Defencelcss [Defences] State of Great Britain. Styte.-The [State.-The] musical dissertation was con tinued [continued] until they reached the palace of Zustiniani, [Sustaining] where they arrived towards midnight, to partake of coffee and sherbet. From the technicalities of art, they had passed on to style, musical ideas, ancient and modern forms; from that to the artists and their dif- [if- different] ferent [front] modes of feeling and expressing themselves. Propora [Proper] spoke with admiration of his master, Scarlatti, the first who had imparted a pathetic character to reli- [deli- religious] gious [pious] compositions; but there he stopped, and would not admit that sacred music should trespass upon pro- [profane] fane, [lane] in tolerating ornaments, trills, and roulades. [roads] Does your highness, said Anzoleto, [Inlet] find fault with these and other difficult additions, which have, never- [nevertheless] theless, [helpless] constituted the glory and success of your illus- [illustrious] trious [tries] pupil, Farinelli [Farewell I only disapprove of them in the church, replied the maestro; I would have them in their proper place, which is the theatre. I wish them of a pure, sober, genuine taste, and appropriate in their modulations, not only to the subject of which they treat, but to the person and situation that are repre- [prepare- represented] sented, [scented] and the passion which is expressed. The nymphs and shepherds may warble like any birds; their cadences may be like the flowing fountain but Medea or Dido can only sob and roar like a wounded lioness. The coquetie, [coquette] indeed, may load her siMy [sum] cava- [cave- captain] tina [tins] with capricious and elaborate ornaments. Corilla [Gorilla] excels in this description of music; but once she at- [attempts] tempts to express the deeper emotions-the passions of the human heart, she becomes inferior even to herself. In vain she struggles, in vain she swells her voice and bosom-a note misplaced, an absurd roulade, parodies in an instant the sublimity she had hoped to reach. You have all heard Faustina [Austin] Bordoni, [Bourdon] now Madame Hasse, [Has] in situations appropriate to her brilliant qualities -she had no equal; but when Cuzzoni [Mazzini] came with her pure deep feeling, to sing of pain, of prayer, or tender- [tenderness] ness, the tears which she drew forth banished in an instant from your heart the recollections of Faustina. [Austin] The solution of this is to be found in the fact that there is a showy and superficial cleverness, very different from lofty and creative genius. There is also that which amuses, which moves us, which astonishes us, and which completely carries us away. I know very well that sudden and strartling [startling] effects are now in fashion but if I taught them to my pupilsas [pupils as] useful exercises, I almost repent of it when I see the majority so abuse them-so sacrifice what is necessary to what is superfluous-the lasting emotion of the audience to cries of surprise, and the darts of a feverish and transi- [trans- transitory] tory pleasure.- [pleasure] Consuelo, by George Sand. PRESENTATION OF A DanomMaN [Commandant] Princess TO THE QUEEN.-It was stated in the papers, a short time since, that Captain Forbes, of her Majesty's ship Bonetta, [Bonnet] had brought with him to this country a young African princess, presented to him by the King of Dahomey ; and that her Majesty, having been informed of the cir- [circumstance] cumstance, [cum stance] had graciously signified her intention of taking charge of the child. Her Majesty having ap- [appointed] pointed Saturday last for the presentation of the prin- [pain- princess] cess, Captain Forbes, attended by his interesting charge, attended at Windsor Castle for that purpose, when the young princess, who is not more than eight years af age, was presented to the queen and the prince consort, in the presence of the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal, other members of the royal family, and several of the royal household. The circumstances connected with the possession of the black princess by Captain Forbes are curious. It appears that the gallant captain (who is son of Captain Forbes, of Winkfield Place, near Windsor) had been engaged in negotiating a treaty with the King of Dahomey, having for its object the termination of the export of slaves from that kingdom. This interesting child, considered to be of high rank, had been captured by the king from a neighbouring ruler with whom he had been at war, and had been detained as a close pri- [pro- prisoner] soner, [sooner] not having been disposed of (as is the custom of his Dahoman [Homan] majesty with captives of inferior rank) to the Portuguese and Brazilian slave dealers. She had been closely confined for nearly two years, when she was presented (as a mark of the highest respect, and as an especial favour) to Captain Forbes by the king.

Since her arrival in this country she has made considerable progress in the study of the English language, and manifests great musical talent and intelligence of no common order.

A Mopet [Monet] Town-cLerx.- [Town-clerk.- clerk] Mr. Robert Dobson was appointed town-clerk of Liverpool in the year 1623, on the death of Mr. Brooke. He gave 70 worth of plate for his place, but soon proved himself to be a very bad bargain, even at that price. For some years after Dobson had been appointed to office, the corporation records are full of entries, as to his offences against the purse and the dignity of the corporation. efzer [ever] he had entered office, he was presented by the grand jury, for the three offences of not entering the records ; of taking precedence of the bailiffs, contrary to order ; and of demanding excessive fees. He was tried bya [by] Liverpool jury, and found guilty of all the three offences but he afterwards removed the case into a higher court, and defeated the corporation. Emboldened by this victory, he did not hesitate to defy and insuli [insult] the mayor and burgesses. Again he was presented, for saying that whoever was mayor of Liverpool he would be town-clerk for escaping out of the custody of the bailiffs to which he had been committed for that act of municipal sedition; and for describing the whole body of burgesses as a set of bashragges. [Briggs. He was about to be tried again in Liverpool for these enormities when he removed the case, by writ of certiorari, into another court. He was again presented for this impeachment of Liverpool justice; was summoned to deliver up all records in his possession and was suspended until he did so. He refused to deliver up the records, on which he was committed to the custody of the bailiffs, from which he again escaped. On this renewed defiance of the corporation, he was dismissed from the council ; and was summoned to surrender the scal [cal] of the statute merchant and the book of entry, under penalty of 40. In the hope of escaping from Dobson for ever, the corporation passed a perpetual inhibition against him, with penalties of 100 against any mayor who should re-appoint him to office, and of 20 against any councillor who should vote for his re- [reappointment] appointment. But Dobson was not yet conquered. He now became plaintiff, and compelled the mayor and corporation to appear before the judge of assize at Lancaster. There the battle was fought once more. At last it was left to four of the first men in the county to decide all points in dispute; the principal one being, whether Dobson was a much-injured in- [individual] dividual [individual] or a public pest. After a full hearing, the referees decided, if not in words, in effect, that Dobson was a nuisance, and that the corporation had served him right. Then at length the attorncy [Attorney] owned himself vanquished and the great Dobson controversy was ended. Asa security against future Dobsons, [Dobson] the prac- [pray- practice] tice [ice] of selling the office of town-clerk for a round sum was abolished, though a yearly payment of 6 13s. 4d. was still exacted from the holder of it, towards the repairs of the church and school, and a formal resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion [ion] was passed, declaring the office to be held during good behaviour, aud [and] not for life.--Batnes's [life.--Bates's] History of Liverpool. SrycuLaR [Secular] Move or Trott FisHinc [Fishing] on THE RHONE.-I was strolling one evening, between eigli [eagle] and nine o'clock, on the wooden bridge which spans the Rhone as it rushes from the Lake of Geneva, when my attention was arrested by seeing a man fishing. His mode of performing was singular. Four large hooks were attached to the end of a line, on each of which a large ecarth-worm [earth-worm] was placed. The hooks were so arranged that they hung clear of each other. The bait was cast into the Rhone, and allowed to be carried down as far as the second bridge, about one hundred yards distant. Then it was agitated by a series of jerks, which gave a life-like motion to the worms. In this way, the fisherman told me, that trout of as much as forty pounds weight were sometimes taken. After looking at the modus operandi [operate] for some time, I asked the man to allow me to try my luck for a few minutes, to which he wilingly [willing] assented. I had not jerked the line more than half a dozen times, when I felt a tug which nearly cut my finger. I had struck a fish, and judging by the strain on the line, of which fully a hundred yards were now out, it was one of no small size. How the fellow swept throngh [through] the rushing waters Not that him, for the only light pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] from the gas-lamps on the bridge, but I knew by the direction of the line that he was careering madly through the element, hoping to repeal the unlooked-for union which he had effected between his jaws and the hooks. How to land him was a perfect mystery; in- [indeed] deed, I would not have given a penry [penny] for my chance of securing him. Following the advice of my friend, I gradually hauled in the line, availing myself of every pause in the fish's struggles to shorten the distance between us. When I had taken in about twenty yards, my hopes of capturing him increased greatly, for it was evident that he was well hooked, otherwise he would assuredly have got off in his desperate rushes and leaps. Proceeding gradually and cautiously, I at length got the fish within twenty yards of the bridge. When he came to the surface his sides shone like silver, and we began to regard him as our prize. But still it puzzled me to divine how he was to be landed, for the fisherman bad neither landing-net nor gaff; he, however, had no misgivings about the matter. A short distance below the bridge there is a slip, or inclined plane, giving access to the Rhone. To the foot of this slip I gradually conducted the fish, which by this time was nearly exhausted. We then crossed the bridge, and descending the slope, I brought him to the edge, and, watching my opportunity, drew my captive's head above the water, when the fisherman, who was standing up to his ancles [angles] in the stream, put his fingers in his gills and secured the prize. It was a fine trout, but not a forty- [fortunate] pounder though, from the great strain on the line, proceeding partly from the swiftness of the Rhone, I had put him down as not far short of that weight. The fisherman was highly delighted. With an accuracy common to the craft, he pronounced the weight as between five and six pounds, and forthwith took the fish to the Hotel des Bergues, [bergs] where it was weighed, and found to be five pounds anda [and] half. He received eleven franes [frames] for it, at the rate of two francs a pound. I endeavoured to prevail on him to sell it to the Hotel de la Couronne, [Coroner] that I might have an opportunity of tasting my capture; but he was under promise to sup- [supply] ply the Bergues bergs with trout.- [trout] Weld's Auvergne, Pied- [Piedmont] moni, [mon] and Savoy.

Just Lixe [Line] His Impupence.-For [Impudence.-For] weeks and weeks- [weeks for] for feverish days and sleepless nights-have we been puzzled to understand what could have been the object of the Pope in so daringly nominating Cardinal Wise- [Wiseman] man, Archbishop of Westminster. At last we have arrived at something like a satisfactory conclusion; for our belief is, that the Pope's object in the nomination was none other than to take the incensus [insurance] of England and, from the very loud indignation that has been ex- [expressed] pressed against it in every part of the kingdom, we think that His Knowing Holiness has every chance of succeed- [succeeding] ing in his object. An Arrair [Array] oF Fotty.-The [Forty.-The] Irish correspondent of the Times stated, that, on Saturday week last, a hostile meeting took place in Phoenix Park between the Mar- [Marquis] quis [quin] of Sligo and Mr. G.

It is to be hoped this account will be contradicted before we publish the observation, that the Marquis who could make a mark of himself deserves to be a butt and the Commoner who could expose his silly brains to perfora- [perform- perforation] tion [ion] must be the greatest goose at this time grazing on a common. - SUDDEN DEatu.-Charles [Death.-Charles] Howard Sidebotham, [Sideboard] Esq., formerly a cotton spinner at Ashton-under-Lyne, but latterly an agriculturist, living upon his own estate at Ash- [Ashley] ley, in Cheshire, experienced an awfully sudden death at anchester [Manchester] on Monday. The annual fair commenced on Monday, called the Salford Dirt Fair, and Mr. Sidebotham [Sideboard] came to the fair with a view of buying stock. In Bridge- [Bridge street] street, Manchester, he met Mr. Isaac Picton, of Brough- [Broughton] ton, and while in conversation he suddenly sank down and instantly expired. A eon [on] who was called in said that death had arisen from disease of the heart. Mr. Sidebotham [Sideboard] was about 60 years of age. Doty [Dot] or a JuDGcE.-In [Judge.-In] the course of an a ent [end] in Vice-Chancellor Bruce's Court on Monday, Mr. James Parker read from the notes of the trial a passage of Mr. Justice Patteson's charge to the jury, in which that learned judge said that a judge is bound to understand all acte [act] of liament, [Parliament] and that one of the most difficult duties a judge ad to perform was to interpret modern statutes, and that he could not quite clearly understand the act before him. Sir J. K. Bruce observed that Mr. Justice Patteson was a person from whose opinion it was very dangerous to differ, he being so generally right; but for the first time in his life, he felt compelled to dissent from part of what had been read as the charge to the jury, for his honour did not think a judge was bound to understand all acts of parlia- [Parliament- parliament] ment, [men] however a judge might be bound to try to compre- [compare- comprehend] hend [end] them, and that was hard enough.

I did believe, and do still, that Popery is breaking in on this nation, and that those who advance it will stop at nothing to carry on their design-I am heartily sorry that many Protestants give their helping hand to it. But I hope God will preserve the Protestant religion and this nation, though I ain [in] afraid it will fall under very great trials, and very sharp suffering. THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE EASTERN CouNTIES [Counties] RalL- [All- Railway] Way Company.-We are requested to state that Mr. Betts has definitively resigned the office of chairman to the Eastern Counties Railway Company. That gentlemansent [gentleman sent] in his resignation consequent on an accident he met with some weeks since, but was subsequently urged by his col- [colleagues] leagues in the directory to reconsider the matter. After giving every consideration to the wishes of his colleagues, Mr. Betts continues to adhere to his original intention. RaiLwayY [Railway] ACCOMMODATION FOR THE EXHIBITION OF 185 [W] -The representatives of the various railway companies have assented to certain recommendations to the effect that each railway company should afford every facility for the con- [conveyance] veyance [conveyance] and delivery of articles intended for the exhibition, allowing a deduction of one-half the railway charge to exhibitors on certain conditions, and at the exclusive risk of the owners, without any liability on the part of the railway company. That in order to encourage the carly [early] for- [formation] mation [nation] of subscription clubs in the country, to enable the labouring classes to travel to London and back during the exibition [exhibition] of 1851, the railway companies should under- [undertake] take to convey all persons so subscribing to local clubs at a single fare to and back, which shall in no case exceed the existing fare by Parlimentary [Parliamentary] trains for the journey in one direction, namely 1d. per mile, or cne [ce] 3d. per mile for the whole distance there and back, with an abatement for distances exceeding 120 miles fron [from] Lon- [London] don; for instance, a distance of 150 miles will be paid for as 140 miles; 200 miles, as 180 miles; 300 miles, as 250 miles; 400 miles, as 310 miles; 500 miles, as 360 miles, and in like proportion between the respective distances. In order to engage a special train, 250 passengers for the whole journey must be secured, the hour of arrival in London being made as convenient as possible for the excursionists, and the time of departure for the return journey being previously arranged according to circumstances, but in no case to exceed six days from that of arrival. That the railway companies shall not be required to bring up any subscription clubs before the Ist. [Its] ot July, 1851, nor until the admittance to the exhibition shall have been reduced to 1s., and then only at such time as may be specially fixed according to the general convenience of each company.

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE AT A PUSEYITE [PURSUIT] CHURCH IN Lonpon.-A [London.-A] scene of the most extraordinary character, calculated to create considerable alarm and excitement, took place, on Sunday, during morning service, at the re- [recently] cently [cent] erected protestant church of St. Barnabas, Pimlico, at which principles and practices having an affinity to Romanism [Remains] prevail. In consequence of some attempt to in- [interrupt] terrupt [corrupt] divine service on the previous Sunday, and there being some apprehension that the congregation might be disturbed, or a breach of the peace committed, on Sunday, Sergeant Loom, of the B division, and two or three con- [constables] stables under him, the whole being in plain clothes, were placed in the church previous to the commencement of the morning service. The sittings being all filled, the church doors were closed, and, in a few minutes afterwards, a well dressed man was seen to leave by one of the side doors in Church-street, between which and the street there is a small court yard or space opening into the thoroughfare by a door in a stone wall, the latter of which the person who quitted the edifice left open. There is every reason to be- [believe] lieve [liver] that the scene that almost immediately followed was premeditated. The stranger had scarcely left the building five minutes, when a loud shouting and yelling, with the clamour of many voices, was heard by those within the sacred edifice, and Sergeant Loom and his men rushed out by the door the stranger had taken, and by dint of great personal activity, favoured by the position of the entrance, succeeded in preventing an attack upon the church until the arrival of a large party of the police. Upon the ser- [se- yesterday] day of that some half dozen of a mob of nearly 200 had entered the door before spoken of into the space between that aud [and] the church, when, by a most determined effort, they sue- [succeeded] ceeded [needed] in closing the outer door, and thus separating those who had entered from the main body, amidst the cries of We'll have no popery-down with the churech-break [church-break] the door open, and such like exclamations. The few persons who had entered as described retreated over the stone wall upon finding the rest of the party cut off, and the crowd increased momentarily until the arrival of Inspector Cum- [Cumming] ming, of the B division, who was upon the sround [sound] within a few minutes with a small party of men. There was a very strong feeling manifested by many of the well-dressed per- [persons] sons present against the proceedings at St. Barnabas, and it required the exercise of very considerable firmness and moderation on the part of the police to prevent a most serious disturbance. By dint of persuasion and force the vast assemblage, which was such as temporarily to cause much anxiety for the safety of the congregation and the neighbourhood, was with the exception of one person who was captured, dispersed. The one party captured was Mr Wm. Goss, butler in the establishment of Mr. A. R. Drum- [Drummond] mond, [mind] the eminent banker, who was on Monday charged before the magistrates with having committed a breach of the peace by endeavouring to force his way into the church. A number ofwitnesses [of witnesses] werecalled [we recalled] on bothsides, [both sides] and in giving thecase, [these] Mr. Broderip, [Broderick] the presiding magistrate, said it was quite clear there was a large assembly, a large crowd of persons, partly consisting of persons described as gentlemen and of thieves. The question before me is, whether the defendant was at all active in leading the mob, or merely doing what ho had a right to do-going into church. Alihough [Although] some said there was no room inside the church, it was perfectly clear that others declared there was. I cannot find anything that he did, except putting his foot inside the door, and that is denied and witnesses are called who swear that he did not do so. Therefore, taking the case as far as he is concerned, I do not think it one for me to call upon defendant for sureties for his good behaviour, and I therefore dismiss the zomplaint [complaint] but the Queen's peace must be kept, and I am determined that it shall be kept in this district. At the same time, added the worthy magistrate, with visible emotion, 'I must ob- [observe] serve, that those have much to answer for who provoke the le by ceremonies which may ap to be more in aeeordance [accordance] with the Spirit of the Romish [Rooms] religion than the purity of our reformed church, at such a time as the pre- [present] sent. A burst of applause from the auditory followed, which was immediately suppressed by the officers of the 'tant [tan] community, he Scraps ot News. No less than 10,000 persons are said to have booked themselves at New York alone to visit London next year. At the Bristol Police-court, the jurisdiction of whieh [which] ex- [extends] tends over 200,000 inhabitants, there was not, on week, a single entry on the police charge sheets. At the recent rent-day of Sir Joseph Copley, of Sprot- [Spot- Sprite] boro' [Bro] Hall, near Doncaster, he made a reduction of 19 per cent. to his tenants. There are twelve hundred lawyers in New York city, five hundred of whom hare, it is said, a paying practice, the balance a practice of never paying. The New Free Church College, Edinburgh, the Rev.
