An ewe will distinguish her own lamb's bleat among a thousand all braying at the same time. Besides the distinguishment [distinguished] of voice is perfectly reciprocal between the ewe and the lamb who, amid the deafening sound, run to meet one another.

It wheels about, and uttering a loud tremulous bleat of perfect despair, flies from the frightful vision. The mother's voice arrests its flight-it returns-flies, and returns again, generally for ten or a dozen times before the reconcilement is fairly made up.-Lay Sermons, by the Eitrick [Trick] Shepherd. A Romance Iv Reat [Rest] Lire.-In New York, in 1796, my store was in Maiden-lane, within three doors of the store of John Mowatt, [Matt] an extensive dealer in shoes. His foreman was John Peluse, [Pulse] who sat behird [behind] the counter stitching shoes and waiting on customers as they stepped in. One day a corpse was found in the dock at the foot of the street. The coroner took the jurymen from the neighbourhood; and among them John Mowatt [Matt] and his foreman, John Peluse. [Pulse] The corpse lay on the table in the centre of the room. Some of the jurymen remarked that as soon as John Peluse [Pulse] looked on the corpse he started, turned pale, and looked as if he was going to faint. He rallied, however; but his subsequent movements occasioned some curious remarks. The jury, baving [saving] returned a verdict of death by drowning, were discharged. Mowatt [Matt] turned round to look for his foreman; but behold he was not there He stepped out of doors, and saw him high up the street, on the half run, when he quickly turned a corner. All sorts of enquiries werz [were] made, but nothing could be heard of him. This, with his turning pale at the first view of the corpse, occasioned some strange surmises among the jurors for many days afterwards. John Mowatt [Matt] was a bachelor of thirty-five, and Peluse [Pulse] had seen about thirty summers. On a certain day, about one month thereafter, a lady in deep mourning stepped into Mr. Mowatt's [Matt's] store, and asked for a pair of shoes. While John was trying how the shoe fitted, the lady enquired, You had a man in your store-John Peluse [Pulse] by name-what has become of him Yes, says Mowatt, [Matt] But what has become of him I would give a good deal to learn. He then related the story as above stated. Strange, replied the lady; and you have not seen him since No, replied Mowatt, [Matt] I have not seen him since. Yes, you have seen him, replied the lady. I certainly, said Mowatt, [Matt] would not con- [con contradict] contradict a lady of your appearance; but I have not seer him to my knowledge. Well, then, says she, T am John Peluse [Pulse] and the subject on whom you held the inquest was the corpse of my husband. My family name is Randall. I was born in Philadelphia. I married (against the wish of my parents) John Connor, a sober, industrious man, by trade a shoemaker. We lived hap- [happily] pily [pill] for two years. He then took to drinking; neg- [neglecting] lecting [electing] his business and once while in liquor, he struck me. We had no family; so I resolved, while we were stitching shoes together, to learn his trade and leave him. made a passable shoe; when I assumed the male attire, came to New York, and you gave me work as journeyinan. [journey] The rest you know. Jokn [John] told the present narrator, some days after, that on hearing this he was dumbfounded. Well, madam, says John, What are your plans for the future Says she, I have not formed my plans. Well, says John, I liked you as a journeyman; and when foreman, I was pleased suppose now we go into partnership for life. In forty-eight hours thereafter they were marricd. [married] She was a fine-looking woman, and might have passed for twenty-five. This, perhaps, is the first instance on record of a woman sitting as juryman on the corpse of her husband. The above is a simple tale of truth. I was witness to all the facts.-Lawrie Todd. ADVENTURE WitH [With] S1x [Six] Lions.-Soon after twilight I went down to my hole with Kleinboy [Klein] and two natives, who lay concealed in another hole, with Wolf and Boxer ready to slip, in the event of wounding a lion. On reaching the water, I looked towards the carcase of the rhinoceros, and, to my astonishment, I beheld the ground alive with large creatures, as though a troop of zebras were approaching the fountain to drink. Kleinboy [Klein] remarked to me that a troop of zebras were standing on the height. I answered, Yes; but I knew very well that zebras would not be capering around the carcass of a rhinoceros. I quickly arranged my blankets, pillow, and guns in the hole, and then lay down to feast my eyes on the intcresting [interesting] sight before me. It was bright moonlight, as clear as I need wish, and within one night of being full moon. There were six large lions, about twelve or fifteen hyzenas, [hens] and from twenty to thirty jackals, feasting on and around the carcases of the three rhinoceroses. The lions feasted peacefully, but the hyanas [hans] and jackals fought over every mouthful, and chased one another round and round the carcases, growling, laughing, screeching, chattering, and howling without any intermission. The hyzenas [hens] did not seem afraid of the lions, although they always gave way before them; for I observed that they followed them in the most disrespectful manner, and stood laughing, one or two on either side, when any lions came after their comrades to examine pieces of skin or bones which they were dragging away. I had lain watching this banquet for about three hours, in the strong hope that, when the lions had feasted, they would come and drink. Two black and two white rhi- [hi- rhinoceroses] noceroses [necrosis] had made their appearance, but scared by the smell of the blood, they had made off. At length the lions seemed satisfied. They all walked about with their heads up, and seemed to be thinking about the water; and in two minutes one of them turned his face towards me, and came on; he was immediately followed by a second lion, and in half a minute by the remaining four. It was a decided and general move, they were all coming to drink right bang in my face, within fifteen yards of me. An old lioness, who seemed to take the lead, had detected me, and, with her head high and her eyes fixed full upon me, she was coming slowly round the corner of the little vley [Vale] to cultivate further my acquaintance This unfortunate coinci- [Council- coincidence] dence [dene] put a stop at once to all further contemplation. I thought, in my haste, that it was perhaps most pru- [pr- prudent] dent to shoot this lioness, especially as none of the others had noticed me. I accordingly moved my arm and covered her; she saw me move and halted, exposing a full broadside. I fired; the ball entered one shoulder, and passed out behind the other. She bounded forward with repeated growls, and was followed by her five comrades all enveloped in a cloud of dust; nor did they stop until they had reached the cover behind me, except one old gentleman, who halted and looks back for a few seconds, when I fired, but the ball went high. I listened anxiously for some sound to denote the ap- [approaching] proaching [preaching] end of the lioness; nor listened in vain. I heard her growling and stationary, as if dying. In one minute her comrades crossed the vley [Vale] a little below me, and made towards the rhinoceros. I then slipped Wolf and Boxer on her scent, and, following them into the cover, I found her lying dead.-From Cummings Hunter's Life in South Africa.

ANECDOTE oF Lricn [Lyric] Huyt's [Hunt's] FatHer.-My [Father.-My] father took the degree of Master of Arts, both at Philadelphia and New York. When he spoke the farewell oration on leaving college, two young ladies fell in love with him, one of whom he afterwards married. He was fair and handsome, with delicate features, a small aquiline nose, and blue eyes. Toa [To] graceful address he joined a re- [remarkably] markably [remarkably] fine voice, which he modulated with great effect. It was in reading, with this voice, the poets and other classics of England that he completed the con- [conquest] quest of my mother's heart. He used to spend his evenings in this manner with her and her family, a noble way of courtship; and my grandmother became so hearty in this cause, that she succeeded in carrying it against her husband, who wished his daughter to marry a wealthy neighbour-The Autobiography of Leigh unt. [nut] Test OF AFFECTION.-Mr. Archibald Stanhcpe, [Stanhope] a groggy sentimentalist, residing in Buckley-stroet, [Buckley-street] Philadelphia, conceived the harrowing suspicion that his wife was not s passionately fond of him as a lady of good taste shou'd [shoe'd] be and, to put the matter to a fair trial, he hit on a little stratagem, which he put in practice the other day, with the results hereafter to be detailed. He took a suit of clothes and composed an effigy of himself by stuffing the garments with a quantity of straw which had lately been discharged from an old bed. Having suspended this figure to a rafter in the garret, by means of a piece of clothes-line, he esecnced [seceded] himself behind a pile of rubbish in the same garret, to watch the effect. After a while his little daughter came up after a jumping-rope, and caught a glimpse of the suspending figure. She ran down the stairs, screaming, Oh, mother, mother, daddy has hung himself Now for it, thought Archibald, in ambuscade, we shall have a touching scene presently. Hung himself he heard Mrs. Stanhope repeat, as she walked leisurely up-stairs ; he hasn't [has't] got pluck enough for such a thing, or he would have done it long ago. Well, I believe he has done it, however, she continued, as she came in view of Archibald's straw representative. Moll, to the little girl, I think he ought to be cut down. You had better go into the kitchen and get a knife, my dear but don't go down too fast, or you might fall and hurt yourself. Stay-I forgot- [forgot there] there's no knife in the kitchen sharpenough. [sharp enough] You can go round to Mr. Holmes, the shoemaker, Sixth-street, he's only two squares off, and ask him to lend us his paring knife tell him to whet it a little before he sends it. And, Molly, while you are in the neighbourhood, you can call at your aunt Sukey's [Sky's] and ask how the baby is. And, Molly, you can stop at the grocery-store as you come back, and get a pound of seven-cent. sugar. Poor Archy [Arch] sighed Mrs. Stanhope, when her daughter had departed, T hope we'll get him down before the vital spark's ex- [extent] tinect-for [tine-for -for] these buryings [brings] are very troublesome, and cost money. He wanted to put an end to himself, too; and I think I ought to let him have his own way for once in his life he used to say that I was always acrossing [crossing] him. I wish he hadn't [had't] spoiled the new clothes line-an old rope might have answered his purpose. Here a voice, which sounded like that of the supposed suicide, broke in upon Mrs. Stanhope's soliloquy with You confounded Jezabel, [Isabel] I'll be the death of you Mrs. Stanhope, thinking this must, of course, bea ghostly exclamation, uttered a wild scream, and attempted to escape down the narrow stair- [staircase] ease. Archibald, starting from his place of concealment, gave chase. Mrs. Stanhope stumbled midway on the flight of stairs, and Mr. Stanhope having just reached her and made a grasp at her dishevelled hair as it streamed back- [backwards] wards, the amiable partners were precipitated to the bottom together. Both were rather badly bruised, and the cries of the lady raised the neighbourhood. Archibald was ar- [arrested] rested for making a disturbance and practising on the tender sensibilities of his wife. He was recognized [recognised] in 200 dollars, and jocularly proposed his suspended effigy as his surety ; but he found, to his sorrow, straw bail was not accept- [acceptable] table under the administration of Mayor Jones.-Penn- [Penny] sy Vanian. [Vain] FINaL [Final] JUDICIAL SETTLEMENT OF THE GORHAM CasE.- [Case.- Case] In the'Arches Court, on Saturday, before Sir Herbert Jenner Fust, [Dust] Dr. Addams, on behalf of the Bishop of Exeter, ap- [appeared] peared [pared] before his lordship to return the presentation im [in] favour of Mr. Gorham, in obedience to the monition of that court. He begged to return the presentation, under pro- [protest] test.-His [His] Lordship What under protest -Dr. Addams With a protest, my lord, merely explanatory of his reasons for refusing to institute Mr. Gorham.-Mr. Bowdler, the proctor for Mr. Gorham, objected to the reception of the protest as irregular.-The learned Judge, after some dis- [discussion] cussion, [caution] ruled that the protest was irre, [ire] The presen- [present- presentation] tation [station] was accordingly returned without it. We understand that the institution of Mr. Gorham, therefore, to the vicar- [vicarage] age of Bamforde [Bamford] Speke, will take place in a few days. A Re.icrovs [Re.across] Impostor.-A case of some importance was definitively adjudged on the 15th, [the] at Castle, Piedmont. It appears that a priest, named Don Grignaschi, [Groans] had suc- [such- succeeded] ceeded [needed] in secretly persuading some women and priests that he was either Jesus Christ himself or directly inspired by him. This doctrine used to be imparted to the neophytes as a sacred mystery, and demonstrated by visions and miracles. The matter having at last attracted the atten- [attend- attention] tion [ion] of the authorities, Don Grignaschi [Groans] was prosecuted, together with his dupes or accomplices, on the counts of swindling and immorality. An able defence was made by advocate Brofferio, [Bravery] the well-known deputy, who founded his arguments on the facts that Grignaschi [Groans] did not teach his doctrines publicly; that he did not attack religion, since his assertions were founded upon it; and that his principles were not contrary to those of the church, since they were the same as those of the Millenary and Saint Simeon sects, which had been professed by bishops and saints, and never before condemned by the church. Not- [Notwithstanding] withstanding this defence, Don Grignaschi [Groans] was condemned to ten years' exile; five priests, accused of complicity, were condemned to exile or imprisonment varying from eighteen months to three years; two women to two years' imprison- [imprisonment] ment; [men] and a notary and another person to a month's imprisonment. Two other persons were acquitted.-G alig- [acquitted.-G ali- Avignon] nani's [mani's] Messenger. FEMALE INTREPIDITY.-An Irishman named Fahy having attempted to force his way into the house of Mr. Sweten- [Sweden- Sweeten] bam, [ba] near Congleton, on a Sunday afternoon, while the family was at church, was repulsed by the maid-servant, Ann Tranter, who had charge of the place. The intruder pretended to be deaf and dumb, and begged for alms; the servant gave him some bread; then he attempted to push past her into the house; on the girl resisting his entrance, he assailed her with a stick; she took it from him; then he beat her with his fists; the girl grappled with him, and beingtall [being tall] and stout, managed to throw him on the ground, and kept him there for some time. When the man suc- [such- succeeded] ceeded [needed] in overpowering her and rose, she ran to a bell and pulled it to give an alarm. Again she baffled Fahy's at- [attempt] tempt to enter the house, pushed him into the stable-yard, and locked him out. The bell had attracted a gamekeeper's notice, and he hurried to the house, where he fornd [ford] the courageous girl in a fainting state. The keeper seized Fahy on the road a short distance from the place, and had him committed on a charge of assault with intent torob.

THE YOUTHFUL COUNT DE Paris.-On Saturday morning last, the communion was administered to the Count de Paris, son of the Duchess of Orleans, by Bishop Wiseman, in the French Catholic Chapel, Portman Square, London, The Ex-King and Queen of the French, the Duchess of Orleans, and all the members of the ex-royal family of France were present, as well as a considerable number of devoted friends anc [an] adherents, many of whom had come from France specially to testify on this occasion their spmpathy [sympathy] and respect for the illustrious exiles. Many English ladies were also present at the ceremony, among whom were remarked the Duchess of Leinster, Lady Gran- [Granville] ville, [villa] Lady Shelburne, [Melbourne] Lady Jersey, Lady Clementina Villiers, Hon. Miss Foley, Lady Harriette d'Orsay, Lady Tankerville, [Tangible] &c. VIOLENT ATTACK ON A MacisTRaTE.-At [Magistrate.-At] the Southwark police-office, on Monday, two unruly females were sentenced to a month's imprisonment each, by Mr. Ing the pre- [presiding] siding magistrate (and formerly a barrister well known on the Northern Circuit), for using improper language in the public streets. Before the sentence listinctly [distinctly] pronounced, each of them suddenly took off their heavy shoes and threw them with great violence at the magis- [magic- magistrate] trate's [rate's] head, accompanied with dreadful oaths and impre- [impure- operations] eations. [nations] Fortunately for Mr. Ir ham the missiles esca [Esq] his head, and merely grazed his rig' t shoulder. Finding they had not succeeded in injuring the magistrate, they at- [attempted] tempted to break down the front of the dock, but several officers being in the body of the court they were prevented, but it required the united strength of ten constables to them to the cells, and in doing so their clothes were torn from their backs. Their violence was so great when in the maoval [oval] ta, latter place that the magistrate ordered their instant re- [there] the WANT OF MONEY. (From the Boston Evening Gazette.) Alas what a thing is poverty Among the fallen on evil days 'Tis [Is] crime, and fear, and infamy, And houseless [useless] want in frozen ways Wandering ungarmented [augmented] and pain, And, worse than all, that inward stain, Foul self-contempt, which drowns in sncers [sneers] Youth's starlight smile, and makes its tears First like hot gall, then dry for ever Riches are not happiness, say many old prosers, generally well-to-do in the world-granted neither is poverty directly and absolutcly [absolutely] misery; but if she be not, she is near akin-she is the mother of miseries, and has, in truth, es swarming and ill-favoured a progeny, of all shapes and sizes, as can well be con- [conceived] ceived, [received] from full-grown evils down to small petty an- [annoyances] noyances. [announces] As it often happens, the junior portion of her offspring are the worst to be endured; they have not the deadly stings and matured malignancy of the elder evils, but are more fretful, teazing, [teaching] irritating, and annoying and are that set of imps thai [that] are perpetually pestering men in middling circumstances, or rather, on the borders or confines thereof, but whom an increasing necessity for the circulating medium is gradually drag- [dragging] ging [going] down to that class of despicable vagabonds, as Cooper's housekeeper calls thom-the [tho-the] poor. Be not afraid, ye men of millions, I am not about to make any draughts upon your sympathy I am not about to at- [attempt] tempt to draw, a la Banim, [Bani] any fearful, loathsome, hag- [haggard] gard [guard] picture of poverty and its effects.- [effects] Such pictures do little good, and much harm; they have the ten- [tendency] dency [Denby] to sear and render callous the feelings, rather than excite pity, or open the well-springs of divine charity. Besides, the superlative is not my line; the positive or comparative is quite high or low enough for one who neither deals in celestial bliss nor ineffable woe, but is content to peddle in the small ware of mere troubles and inconveniences. To want money is to want honour, love, obedience, troops of friends it is to want respect and sympathy, and the ordinary courtesies of society besides, occa- [occur- occasionally] sionally, [finally] victuals. The possession or non-possession of it makes the difference wiiether [whether] life has to be an enjoy- [enjoyment] ment [men] or a task; whether it has to bea walk overa [over] smooth verdant lawn, amid fragrant flowers and aro- [aromatic] matic [magic] shrubs, and all things that minister pleasure to the senses; or a wearisome up-hill journey, through thorns and briars, and other ungracious impediments. It makes the difference whether you have io go bound- [bounding] ing exultingly [exulting] along like the free, full-blooded courser, cr wend your way wearily and slowly like the laden an despised pack-horse. To want money, in a high state of civilization, is to 2a kind of slave it is, at least, to be dependent on the whims and caprices of others, instead of indulg- [indulge- indulging] ing in all the pleasant eccentricities or originalitics [originality] to which your temperament may prompt you; it is to have to rise soon when you wish to lie late, and to go to bed early in order to be enabled so to do; it is to have to live in unwholesome and anti-respectable neigh- [neighbourhoods] bourhoods, [boyhood] and mix in daily communion with people whose ways are not your ways; it is to be a drudge, a hack, a machine, worked for the profit and advantage of others until the springs are broken; it is to be omitted in family celebrations, and roam about invitationless [invitation less] at Christmas; it is to have to put wp with equivocal nods and recognitions in the streets-to have your friends look into print shop windows as you approach, and sud- [sid- suddenly] denly [Denby] bring their admiration of the engraver's skill to a period as soon as you have passed by; it is to feel all delicate sensibilities; all free generous feelings, all aspiring thoughts, checked and crushed within you by a petty but overbearing necessity; it is to have to suffer the greatest misfortunes and the most contemptible vexations; to have family affections and social friend- [friendships] ships uprooted and destroyed, and to be obliged to be uncomfortably careful of coats, hats, and other habili- [hail- habiliments] ments. [rents] It is to live a man forbid; or it is to become an exile frem [free] your native land-a wanderer in foreign and unhealthy climes, hunting for the yellow indispen- [Anderson- indispensable] sible, until you are of the colour of the metal you are in quest of; until the temper becomes soured, the feel- [feelings] ings deadened, the heart indurated, and the liver in an improper state. How beautifully has Leyden portrayed his own fate and feelings, and those of thousands of of others, in that pure gem of poetry, the Address to an Indian Gold Coin For thee-for thee, vile yellow slave T left a heart that loved me true I crossed the tedious ocean wave, To roam in climes unkind and new ; The cold wind of the stranger blew Chill on my withered heart-the grave, Dark and untimely, met my view, And all for thee, vile yellow slave To lack money, is to lack a passport or admission-ticket into the pleasant places of God's earth-to much that is glorious and wonderful in nature, and nearly all that is rare, and curious, and enchanting in art; or if you do travel about in a small way, it is to have that most miserable, rascally, intrusive, and disagreeable of all companions, economy, yoked to you; to be under a continual restraint from his presence to feel unable to give your mind cheerfully and freely up to the scene before you and, in the contemplation of a magnificent view, or a piece of hoar [har] antiquity, to have the wretch whisper in your ear the probable cost of your plea- [pleasure] sureable [sure able] sensations; it is to have a continual contest carried on in your sensorium between pleasure and pru- [pr- prudence] dence [dene] it is to submit to small petty insults at inns for the accommodation of travellers, where, above all places on earth, the men of money shine out with the most resplendent glory, and the unmonied [monied] become the most truly insignificant it is, in fact, to have all our enjoyments diminished and annoy- [annoyances] ances [aces] aggravated to have pleasure almost transmuted into pain, or, at least, to have such shadow of vexa- [vera- vexation] tion [ion thrown over it as materially to change its com- [complexion] plexion; [complexion] and when all is over-journey done and expenses paid-it is to feel a sort of mean remorse a3 you reckon up your past expenditure, and ponder over the most probable remedial ways and means for the future. The two things most difficult of discovery, next to the passage round the North Pole, are talent in a poor man, and dulness [dullness] in a rich one; therefore, to want money is to want wit, humour, eloquence in fact, capacity of every kind; or, at the best, if they be not altogether denied, to have such a duty levied upon them-such an oppressive drawback-that the rich man with inferior wares, is able to beat the poor one when- [whenever] ever they come into competition. For instance, the most casual observer of men and manners must have noticed that in company a joke from a man of 5,000 per annum elicits more admiration, and produces infinitely more hilarity and good humour, than ten equally as good from a man worth 500. Oh it is perfectly wonderful, the raciness and point that an abundance of tempora- [temporal- temporalities] lities [cities] impart to a rather dull saying. Besides, a jest from a man in the receipt of a contemptible income, by some strange fatality changes its nature, and becomes little better than sheer impertinence. It is that sort of thing which grave gentlemen and prudent matrons de- [designate] signate [signature] by the word unbecoming. Now, all this, though visible to the meanest capacity, might puzzle a philosopher. He would be as unable to comprehend it as he would the curious sympathy which exists between sterling wit and superfine cloth, that mutually assist and set off each other. Many a quaint conceit and rare piece of pleasantry has altogether lost its effect and fallen pointless in consequence of the speaker's gar- [garments] ments [rents] not being of that texture, or posscssed [possessed] of that freshness which is altogether desirable. The moral, good reader, to be deduced from all this is, that you be not petulant and acrimonious because these things are so; but that, if endowed with a money making dispo- [dis- disposition] sition, [sit ion, you assiduously cultivate it, and then you will not need care whether these things are so or not. The want of money, too, I am inclined to think, produces physical changes which have not as yet been sufficiently noticed by the faculty. It causes a gradual and considerable accumulation of bile, which lies lurking in the system, until incivilities of friends, or the impor- [import- importunities] tunities [unites] of creditors, cause it to become completely vitiated or inspissated [insisted] after which a man, especially one predisposed to melancholy and contemplation, looks at everything on earth through a pair of yellow spec- [spectacles] tacles. [tables] The unhappy patient becomes saturated, body and mind, with jaundice he shuns the society of his fellow-men, butions [bunions] his coat up to his chin, pulls his hat over his eyes, deposits his hands in the pockets of his small clothes, and takes extraordinary long walks into the country. But even the fair face of nature becomes changed the barrenness of his pockets throws a sterility over the landscape, deducting the glory from the grass, and splendour from the flower. The blossoming of the earth is no longer pleasant to his sight, or the music of the merry warblers of the woods delightful to his ear. His heart is out of joint, and all nature seems to be filled with unpleasing compari- [compare- comparisons] sons between his own state and hers. He stalks about with lowering brow and upturned lip, an unpleasant discord amid the universal harmony and fitness of things. At this juncture, let intelligence arrive of a heavy legacy left him by some appropriately defunct distant relative-and lo, M. Il Penseroso [Penrose] becomes L'Allegro in a twinkling. He draws his hands from the extensive vacuum into which they have been dangling, takes the yellow spectacles from his eyes, raises the hat from his brow, unbuttons his coat, and turns with a f eling [f ling] of leisurely enjoyment to welcome the fresh spring breeze. The song of birds and the odour of flowers are again grateful to his senses. The rivulet ripples once more pleasantly to his ear, and the cheerful song of the lark finds a corresponding echo in his own bosom. He indulges no longer in speculations on the vanity and insufficiency of things, but hies homeward cheerful, free, enfranchised, independent. He orders an approved cookery-book, lies a-bed and studies it, and marvels, in a short time, how melancholy ever gained a footing in this mighty pleasant world.

Wecan [Can] only say that, if these were his duties, no one man could do it. THE EXpenseE [Expense] or Equiry.-Lord [Enquiry.-Lord] Cottenham is about to retire upon 5,000 per annum-deserving it, to be sure, as much as an ex-chancellor could do. This is the usual superannuation allowance of lord chancellors-or lord high chancellors, as they are more properly called, for certainly they do run very high. ExHrsition [Exhibition] oF Inpustry.-The [Industry.-The] Exhibition of Indus- [Industry] try, as far as it has gone, shows the following results - The industry of complaining, and the industry of find- [finding] ing fault, and the industry of making mistakes, but with very little industry to repair them. There has also been a wonderful industry in collecting money, but a shameful lack of industry on the part of those who have the means to pay, and oughi [ought] to pay, but somehow will not pay. THE FOLLY oF a NicHt.-This [Night.-This] Sunday-letter-stoppage business has become so absurd, that it is almost wanting in good sense to treat it seriously so we recommend that some great elocutionist, Mr. Jones, Mr. John Cooper, or Mr. Frederick Webster, be deputed to wait upon the Post-office, and iry [ir] to cure it of the ridiculous impediment in its delivery. CHARITY MADE Easy,-Lord John Russell would not accede to Mr. Hume's amendment of 8,000 a-year to the Duke of Cambridge,-the Duke must have 12,000 because he was expected to be charitable. Mr. Punch -xupon [upon] his own responsibility-offers to find any num- [sum- number] ber [be] of individuals who will be twice as charitable as the present Duke upon exactly half the grant. How droll charity may be You give a Dukea [Duke] heap of money that he may be benevolent, and then laud him to the skies for this paid philanthropy A NEw [New] way To Pave OvEs.-Westminster-bridge [Ives.-Westminster-bridge] is ina very bad state, and so is King's-road, E tton-square. [ton-square] At present they are almost uscless, [useless] and all but impas- [imps- impassable] sable. We propose, therefore, that Westminster-bridge be pulled down to repair the Kine's-road, and thata [that] new rate be levied on the Marquis of Westminster, or Lord Grosvenor, or the parish, or whoever the shabby delinquent is, for the erection of a new bridge, At all events, the metropolis would have gained one good way instead of two bad ones, which we call a very good way of getting over two difficulties. . Loox [Loo] at Home GENTLEMEN.-A large deputation of Provosts from Glasgow have waited, it seoms, [seems] upon Lord John Russell to entrcat [entreat] him to enfarce [enforce] the new postal regulations of the Sabbath. Might we recommend to these too zealous Provosts to busy themselves a little more with the purification of their own city Surely there is plenty to occupy them at home, without rushing all the way to London to seek for moral employment If we have been rightly informed, Glasgow is the most immoral town in the whole United Kingdom, and that many worse things than receiving or sending a letter occur there every Sunday. Drunkenness, we are told, runs about the streets in the most debauched state. If this be true, and we are afraid their is no doubt of it, it is very evident that these worthy magistrates may be acting up rigidly to the Letter of the Sabbath, but at the same time they sadly overlook the Spirit. Tue Enp [End] or repeal has not suc- [such- succeeded] ceeded, [needed] it may be said to have gained its end, or at all events its own end, for it came to a termination last Monday week, and a short funeral oration was spoken by Mr. John O'Connell. The poor thing has died in the most distressed circumstances, with all its rent in terrible arrear, [area] and with scarcely a roof over its head; for it was intimated that the existence of repeal had be- [become] come a landlord's question, and that the landlord of the Hall would no longer tolerate such a miserable tenant. Mr. John O'Connell intimated that the cause of the death of repeal was the neglect of the country to speak out, but it is perfectly well understood that the neglect of the country to fork out was the real cause of the catastrophe. An old woman and an elderly man ina bad hat and bankrupt circumstances were the last to adhere to the dear departed and when the hall-keeper came to clear out, they reluctantly retired. --- .--- - THE NEW PRESIDENT OF THE WESLEYAN CONFERENCE. -The Wesleyan Times, in asking the question, Who is to be President remarks that several names have been canvassed. A mere record of these, the editor ob- [observes] serves, will show their unfitness. Dr. Beecham, Dr. Hannah, William Naylor, and Joseph Fowler. They are all party-men (the latter become so lately), and are there- [therefore] fore ill adapted to sit in the moderator's seat at the present crisis. Some one who has not been painfully mixed up with recent matters would be most likely to give general satisfaction to the connexion. Dr. Beecham has perhaps been the least so, but the second edition of his pamphlet proves him a high clerical prerogative advocate, as far ad- [advanced] vanced [advanced] as Dr Pusey, if not a little beyond. The connexion is in the position of a noble vessel, which, by the unskilful- [unskilfulness] ness, recklessness, or obstinacy, of her commander, or by all these combined, is in a dangerous channel, surrounded by fearful rocks, and, already somewhat abrased, [erased] is in im- [in- imminent] minent [eminent] peril of shipwreck. What she wants is a com- [commander] mander [Marden] who is neither unskilful, nor reckless, nor obstinate, and whose steady hand might navigate her safely into her proper course. May the Almighty direct the selection of such an one The conference will commence in London, on Wednesday, the 31st [st] of July. MEMORIAL TO SIR ROBERT PEEL.-A general meeting of the inhabitants of the west end of the metropolis, was held at Willis's Rooms, on Tuesday, for the purpose of promot- [prompt- promoting] ing a subscription for an enduring monument to the memory of Sir Robert Peel; the Earl of Aberdeen in the chair, The Duke of Wellington and a at number of noblemen and members of the House of Commons were present. After the chairman had delivered a warm eulogy on the late baronet, the Duke of Wellington then rose. He said that he regretted that deafness had prevented his taking the chair. He moved the first resolution That this meeting desires to express a deep sense of the loss which the country has sustained by the death of Sir Robert Peel, and to perpetuate by some enduring memento the remembrance of his eminent talents, unremitting and laborious exertions in the service of his country, and his exemplary private virtues. The noble duke concluded by declaring that he could with safety say, from the experience of a quarter of a century, that no statesman ever devoted his talents with greater energy, integrity, and ability to the public service than the late distinguished statesman.-Lord Ashley secondea [second] the resolution, and it was carried unani- [unanimously] mously.-Lord [Mosley.-Lord .-Lord] Hardinge [Harding] moved, That a committee be formed to raise subscriptions, and to consider the best mode of carrying the foregoing resolution into effect and that the Duke of Wellington, the Earl of Aberdeen, Lord Jersey, Mr. Goulburn, &c., do form the committee, with power to their number. -This was seconded by Colonel Estcourt, [Est court] and also carried unanimously.-Lord Ashburton moved a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was seconded by Mr. W. Cotton, and the meeting broke up. THE FaLis [Fails] OF NIAGARA.-OVERTHROW OF THE GREAT TABLE Rock.-Accounts from Canada announce the fall of the great Table Rock of the Falls of Niagara, under cir- [circumstances] cumstances [cum stances] of much interest. We extract the following from the Buffalo Courier of the Ist [Its] instant The falling of the Table Rock, at Niagara Falls, on Saturday last, was an event which has been prognosticated from time imme- [Mme- immemorial] morial, [moral] though the precise period at which the affair would 'come off' was not designated. The portion that fell was from 150 to 200 feet long, and from 30 to 70 feet broad, making an irregular semicircle, the general conformation of which is probably well remembered by those who have been on the spot. It was the favourite point for observa- [observe- observation] tion. [ion] The noise occasioned by the crash was heard at the distance of three miles, though many in the village on the American side heard nothing of it. It is a very fortunate circumstance that the event took place at dinner time, when most of the visitors were at the hotels. No lives were lost. A carriage from which the horses had been detached, stood upon the rock, and a boy was seated inside. He felt the rock giving way, and had barely time to get out and rush to the edge that did not fall before the whole immense mass was precipitated into the chasm below. STIPENDIARY MaGIstRATES [Magistrates] WANTED.-We often hear of stipendiary magistrates being required in boroughs a fre- [re- frequent] quent [Queen] repetition of such a circumstance as the following will cause a demand for such appointments in counties. At the late quarter sessions it was to adjourn the appeal cases until Saturday last. On that day the Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire and Yorkshire Railway Company had fifteen cases of appeal to be heard against the rating of the Preston and yre [re] Railway in that number of townships in the Fylde. Shortly after ten o'clock the agents of the appellants were present, and on their behalf three counsel, specially re- [retained] tained-viz., [gained-viz., -viz] Messrs. Pollock, Sanders, and Ovens, There were also twenty witnesses in court, many of whom must have attended at great inconvenience to the company's service and there had also been brought for evidence a vast number of books and other documents. Among the witnesses were some of the principal servants of the com- [com] y- Onthe [Other] ert [et] of the various respondents there were in attendance Mr. Segar, Mr. Blair, and Mr. Ashton, as counsel, besides the overseers of the townships and a con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] number of witnesses. Mr. W. A. Hulton was ready to hear the appeals, and waited for above two hours, but no second magistrate could be prevailed upon to sit (the law requiring appeals to be heard before two justices), al- [although] though at the time there weresixteen [were sixteen] magistrates atthecourt [authority] house, there being a meeting of visiting justices of the House of Correction that day. The refusal of any of the justices to sit, so as to form a Court, prevented the cases ing heard, and counsel, attorneys, agents, and witnesses, had 0] return home, leaving their business undone. Besides the uncertainty in which the question at issue is left, and the vast inconvenience to which the parties were put, both the townships and the company had been at considerable to pre for the hearing. The to the alway [always] company would be little, if anything, short of 100. We think it right to state that two of the magistrates t, Mr. Addison and Mr. Marshall, were precluded, being shareholters [shareholders] ia th from adjudicating upon being shazchotos [sachets] i tho comp a 3 SCRAPS OF NEWS.
