FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR W. COBBETT. e (From the Observer.) Yesterday the mortal remains of the late Mr William Cobbett were consigned to the same grave in Faruham church vanl were lie the remains of his father and a father. Fanihani is a small town in Surrey, 37 miles west of London, au.i from an early h rur of the morning up to one o'clock numbers ot persons continued to arrive both there and at Normandy. a piace so called from the ti:ne of the conquest, a'>out seven miles from Parnham, an.! between Ash and Guildford, where Mr Cobbett died. It lit(l been decitie(i upon that the funeral should be con- ducted in a plain manner; the body was placed in an -1, cottjii a it oaken coffin and that enclosed in one of lead. About half-past twelve o'clock the hearse and four horses began to move from Normandy, followed by four mouriHng coaches, and many private carriages, &c. from Londun and: places adjacen', towards Farnham. In the first coach were Mr C»bbett's four sons, Mr Fieldcn, M.P. for Oldham, and Mr John Leach, late M.P. for Surrey. The other coaches contained iMrWakley, M.P. •, K uowles, Esq. Captain Djiiueily Faith fir. li^C]. to whom Mr Richard Cobbett is articled; Mr Betk, of Bolt-court, Fleet-street; Mr Mellish, the banker, of Godalrnillg; Mr Swaine, of Fleet-;?reet and Messrs Scales, Luichins, Ellimau Coppin, Weils, Grey, Ohiticld, Garsell, &c. Mr O'Connell joined the procession about three miles down the road. A vast number of persons followed on foot, and the assemblage was considerably increased as the pro- cession approached Farnham. where it arrived at about a quarter to three o'clock. It was the wish of some of the friends of the deceased that he should be buried in the church, but as Mr Cobbett had expressed a desire to he deposited in the same s;iavc with his father, it was of course complied with. The grave lies opposite the church door, aud is about nine feet i:i depth. The coffin was carried into the church, followed by Messrs William, John, James, and Richard Cobbett. Mr O'Connell left the proce s ;,)ti at the chiii-ch door. it being stated that he declined to enter from religious mo- tives.* I'he other gentlemen named above followed the Messrs Cobbett. The funeral service was performed by Mr Menzies, the curate of Farnham Church, and at the conclusion the Rev. gentleman led the procession to the gr,tv, The coffin \\as then lowered, the inscription on which was as foll"vs: Mr William Cobbett, Ill, I'. fj r Oldham, died the ISth of June, 1S35, aged 73." Mr O'Connel', who remained beside the grave, we understand said, in reply to a question put to him, I would have spoken, but his family did not wish it, and of course they know bes' It was anticipated that an oration would have been delivered, and one or two persons were named as the piobable speakers, but all passed off as usual on these melancholy occasions. After the service over the grave, during the delivery of which Mr O'Connell put on his travc!1ing-cap, the mourners left the churchyard. One of the late Air Cobbett's sons was so much affected that his friends carried him to the vestry. Mr O Conncll and Mr Harvey left for tow;: shortly afterwards but a large crowd lingered beside the grave, many of whom appeared sensibly affected. It is supposed that about 8,000 persons were present at the funeral, about 3000 more than the population of the town. A heaustone to the memory of Mr Cobbett's grandfather, Mr CTecrge Cebbett. who ditd in 1760. was removed iu order ta dig the gran. The deceased has left a widow and seven children, one brother, and manv relatives. The house in which he was horn was visited throughout the day by numerous parties. it is by the side of a little bridge over the river Wey, and has been known for many yeais as an alehouse by the sign of the Jolly Fanners. I he rooill in which he was born is to be seen yet, and hundreds have profited by the opportunity. We believe that Roman Catholics are forbiildeu to hoid communion in things that are sacied, or in religious ob- se; vances, with persons professing a different creed.
(From a Correspoit(lelit.) I passed Christinas Eve in the cathedral of—, where I found utmost all tile female part of the city assembled, with a large proportion of males; most ot those who could afford it, were handsomely dressed and seated on cushions, or on mats spread upon the ground. The altar was magnificently lighted, as in fact was the whole of the building, and the smaller chapels, either private or public, and dedicated to particular saints, were most brilliant; some of them presenting a blaze of gold, and others ot silver, va- riously coloured marbles, &c. &c At eight o'clock I s the music began, and was selected from the finest of the old composers. The orchestra was near the roof, and consisted of a number of stringed and wind instruments, a splendid organ, and the most beauti- ful voices. 1 he words were latin, but the distinct articulation and correct ears of a southern people suffered not a syllable to be lost. After a selection of hymns, (jlora*} A>c. cfec. executed in the most masterly style, and accompanied by various and in- cessantly changing ceremonies at the altar, which to ine sadly contrasted with the perfection of the music, the latter ceased, and after a short pause was resumed in a subdued tone It was the virgin herself who was then personated and her cries, her prayers, her description of her sufferings were most painfully and Cieverly, I had almost said disgustingly, represented. Midnight then drew near the agonized mother was supposed to exclaim she could no longer support her pains, and the music gradually died away-a solemn silence reigned through the whole cathedral, when an electrifying burst, from the whole of the orchestra, for a moment startled us, a door near the altar was thrown open, and after the clock had struck twelve, the bishop and his retinue rushed before the altar, and forming themselves in proces- sion, descended the steps, the censer boys scattering perfumes all round tjie bishop bearing the waxen image of a new-born infant in a white cloth, one leg and one arm of which were raised in order to give an appearance of life. It was too like truth, and as the people rose on each side to kiss this image, the heavenly music, the splendor of the scene, all seemed to vanish from my senses, and I felt a pity which caused more sadness than I could shake off for some time. In some convents this event which was to redeem a fallen people, is described with even more minuteness, and the image of Mary is laid in her bed in the middle of the church, and at the proper moment the waxen form representing the sa- vionr of mankind. is taken from unrW the bed clothes and offered to the caresses of the surround- ing multitude. j I was also present on Good Friday and Easter Sunday at the above mentioned Cathedral; with the first no fault could be found, except the incessant and wearying charges at altar, but on the latter the ceremonies were incre -,ej. At the given signal the black cloth with wh- the whole of the ca- thedral was hung, disappeared in a moment without seeing the means by which it was withdrawn, showers of flowers of the loveliest kinds then de- scended on our heads from the roof, and a number of little birds were let loose, in order to give an idea of the coming to life In Heaven. Some years after, my travels in one of the pro- vinces of VAL u me to be a spectator of another ceremony beforehand, on Good Friday. The church was dressed with all the livery usual on such occasions, but in the middle of the edifice laid a wax figure of our Saviour on his bier, watched by two of the apostles richly clothed. A beautiful young lady holding (he highest rank in the province, and splendidly dressed, was after the sermon, led to l"e a'tar> where a large napkin was fastened round her waist, and kneelin» on the steps, she washed the leet ot twelve young girls who were placed there to represent the twelve apostles.
TURKISII JESTS—One day Nasir-ed-din as- cended the pulpit of the filos(itie, and thus addressed the congregation Oh, true believers, do you know what I an. going to say to you ?" «'No,responded the congregation. Well, then," said he, there is 110 use in my 8 peakitig to you and he came down from the pulpit. He went to preach a second time and asked the congregation, Oh, true believers do you know what I am going to say to you?'' "We know," replied the audience. « Ah, as you know it," said he, quitting the pulpit, « why should I take the trouble of telling you ?" When next he came to preach, the congregation thought to fix him, and when he asked the usual question, replied, some of us know, and some of us do not know."—"Very well," said he, let thosp who know tell those who do not know.

MAST11 HUGHES, THE CAMBRIAN HARPIST, I This precocious genius has delighted the denizens of our good borough during the week, at two evening concerts; and has been attended by numerous and fashionable audiences. On Thursday evening, at his first concert, the programme contained a selection of the lIIo-t favorite airs, calculated to display to advan- tage Ule brilliancy of bis execution, and his exquisite taste. The variations to 4< Poor Mary Ann, and My lodging is ou the cold ground," were rhost taste- fully given, and elicited loud applause. He also ex- cited general admiration in the "lvelsh battle piece," Napoleon's March," and the Metange." He in. troduced a comic song accompanied by hImself with great effect, and was encored and mA-ve the fitiale to each part with peculiar sweetness and energy. MOlls. de Pothouier varied the performance with several pieces 0:1 the piano forte, in which he displayed al- most superhuman execution, the most chaste expres- sion, and a refined taste. We understand Master Hughes intends giving concerts at Pwllheli,-Conway, Denbigh, &c. and alter receiving his gold medal at Llwydiarth, will exhibit in Chester, Liverpool, and Manchester, previous to iii, departure fur Dublin. The tollowiug inauguration of the youthful inonai-ch ofthe lyre by his subject bards, will prove interesting to our readers We the Bards, and others, promoters of Welsh Literature, at a (7orsedd, held on the Druidical Rocking Stone on the demesne of Llwydiarth, in the Isle of Anglesey, for ordaining and graduating B,tt-ds and Ovids, according to the ancient forms and usages of the Druids, admitted Master Hughes, the renowned young Welsh harpist, IJ the degree of an Ovidj under the name and title of 44Bteguryd up Sits,/lit: And we beg to bear testimony to his extraordinary skill in playing ou the harp, and the high gratifica- tion which we received from his performance at our Eisteddfod held at the town of Llanerchymcdd, near the Rocking Stone, and as a small mark of respect for his performance, the President and Committee have awarded him a Gold Medal.

ATTEND TO THE REGJSTKATION.WC cannot be too emphatic in our advice to the Conservatives, that the registration is to be cared for, and attended to. The t-ine is at hand, when it takes place, and that man deserves to be misrepresented who neglects it. The Registration is a duty which every Euglishnian owes to himself, and to his country. Unless it be attended t0' rfi^ vi|,tually nullify the Reform Bill. Let no qualified person neglect to claim his right,—there may be-there probably will be a general election be- foie the year is out, and how foolish will everv one look, who, having a right to vote, neglected to claim it and instead of vain regrets at the want orpotver to second the icill, we must have every man duly qua- lified at the poll. 4 OPERATIVE CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION- .The feeling which we noticed last week is spreading ra. pidly among the working classes, and we hope soon to find that Operative Conservative Associations have been established in every district of the town. A general meeting was held on Wednesday evening at the Coach aud Horses, London-rotid, for the purpose of enrolling members in the association already e»- tablished, and for making other arrangements, when some verygratifyinx inform-diian relative to thr>cni-onrl -t" of sound feeling amongst the operatives was given by the persons as.,ietu bled. -,tlan choster Courier.

COAL FIELD IN SOUTH WALES.—MR Bakewell, in his System of states that iu South Wales, adjoining the B>|S aniiel, an almost exhaustless supply of coal an iron stone are yet nearly un- wrought. ItJ»as been stated that this coal fie'ld ex- tends over about;00 square miles, and that there are *23 beds o woi able coal, the total average thickness of which is 95 feet, and the quantity con- thickness of which is 95 feet, and the qualltity con- taiued in each acre is 100,000 tons, or 64 millions of tons per square mile. tach square mile of the Welsh coal field would yte.d coal for 100 years' consttm P tioll and as there are from 1,000 to 1,200 square miles in this coal field, it would supply England with fuel for 2,000 years, after all our English coal mines should be worked out. DREADFUL MvKDEH--—In(elligenee was received on Monday se nnight, at Carlow, of a most atrocious murder having been committed the preceding night, about three miles from that town. It appears that the unlortunate Victim of this savage outrage, a man named Byrne, was in bed, when some person rapped at his cabin door and asked him to get up, and con- duct them some way on the road, as they had missed their way. Uyrne, not suspecting that their repre- sentations were false, dressed himself and went out. When he had proceeded a short distance with the three men who rapped at his door, they seized their wretched victim, threw him down and getting large stones, battered his head and chest with them, until they smashed in his head, and reduced every feature in his face to one undistinguished and frightful mass. The Kilkenny Moderator states that they have not heard all the particulars, but will not be surprised to hear that the murder was consequent on Byrne's having voted for the Conservative candidates.
SU YLVL^RIVV OF TI11. WEEK'S PROCEEDINGS in PARLIAMENT HOUSE OF LORDS.—THURSDAY. The Duke of RICHMOND presented a petition from the inhabitants of Clare, in favour of the esja- blislmient of Poor-laws in Ireland j and a similar petition from Tullamore. His grace declared that he was convinced that the establishment of Poor- laws for Ireland would not only tend much to the comfort of the people, but would greatly diminish the number of offences of violence, now, uniortu- nately, so common in that country. The Earl of I-IMERICK observed that what suited England would not suit Ireland, and with respect to the Poor-laws in England, they had exercised a horrid influence tiere-tlley had nearly ruined the country. The Ouke of RICHMOND said, that when the noble earl spoke of Poor-laws ruining this country, he had forgotten that when Ireland was suffering from distress there was a large subscription of money in this country, and if England had been nearly ruined, surely the people here ought not to have been expected to subscribe to relieve distress in a country which was not ruined by Poor-laws. The Bishop of EXETER presented two petitions, one from Mr Mangles, the other from Mr Stoney, both of which excited lIIuch animated comment, and the House then adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS—THURSDAY. On the motion of Mr F. MAULE, it was ordered that an address should be presented to his Majesty for copies of the Factories' Inspectors' Reports to the Secretary of State, under the provisions of the Factory Act. On the motion of Mr GOULBURN, three persons were ordered into custody for disobeying theSpeaker's summons to atlend the Drogheda Election Committee. Mr VVAKLEY then brought forward the case of the Dorchester Labourers in an impressive speech, which was well received by all parts of the House- After a long discussion his motion was negatived by a majority of 310 to 84. The Municipal Corporation Bill, owing to the lateness of the hour, was postponed. A motion of Mr F. MAULE for leave to bring in a Bill for relief of the tenants and occupiers of land in Scotland from the damages done to their crops by hares, pheasants and rabbits, was, after a short dis- cussion, negatived by a majority of 76 to 50. The House of Lords did not assemble on Friday. HOUSE OF COMMONS—FRIDAY. Several petitions were presented; one by Mr Grote, from Great Yarmouth, complaining of prac- tices adopted there dt the last election, and praying for the protection of the ballot, gave rise to discus- sion. The House was also occupied for some time by the Ipswich case. Messrs Dasent and Pilgrim, who petioned the House, were brought to the bar, after a division on the question as to Mr Dasent, and after being addressed by the Speaker, were discharged. A similar motion as to Mr Sparrowe was negatived by 168 to 127. A warm discussion ensued between Col. Percival, Mr O'Connell. and Mr Shaw, aegarding Mr Hudson, which was terminated by the interference of the Speaker. •IRISH TITHE A.ND CHITKCH BILL. The order of the day was then read tor calling the attention of the House to the Irish Tithe question, and On the motion of Lord MORPETH, the resolu- tions of the 7th of April were read. His lordship proceeded to unfold the measure, for which he asked leave to bring in. a Bill. The first part of the noble lord's plan had re- ference to the maintenance of the clergy; the second to the future regulation of the Establishment and the appropriation of the surplus tunds. The tithes are proposed to be converted into a rent- charge on the land, payable by the head landlord in the first instance, and failing him, by all who hold under him. This rent charge is intended to be col- lected by the Commissioners of Land Revenue, and the amount is to be fixed at c70 for every £ 100 of composition now pavable. Two and a half per cent. is then to be deducted from Úle -£H., to meet the ex- pence of collecting, the Commissioners being res- ponsible to the clergy and to the lay impropriators for the remaining £ 68 5s. and the clergyman receiv- ing from the perpetuity fund an additional so as to make his income amount altogether to t73 5s for every 9100. of composition. A revision and re- valuation of the composition, when deemed neces- sary, are to be made. The arrears due for the years 1831, 1832, and 1833, are not to be provided for, as the tithe-owners had the option of being paid out of the million granted by Parliament for that purpose, and have not availed themselves of it. The remain- der of the million, about £ 300,000, is proposed to be applied to pay off the arrears of 1834. The second or appropriation part of the measure is to the following effect:- It is calculated that there are 860 parishes, in which the number of Pro- testants does not amount to fifty. When any of these parishes, or rather, when any of the benefices created by a union of two or more of them fall vacant, the lord lieutenant in council is to have the power to suspend the presentation to such benefice. In order, however, that the Protestants in Ireland may have the means of religious instruction, when travelling through the country, it is provided that in benefices where there are no Protestants, the clerical duties, "hen required, shall be performed by the incumbent of the next parish, to whom 95 per annum is to be allowed for his extra services. In parishes with fewer than fifty Protestants, the cure of souls is intended to devolve upon the minister of the next parish, who is to be allowed a small remu- neration, varying from £10 to £5[) for the additional trouble or the Ecclesiastical Commissioners may, if they see fit, appoint a separate curate, in which latter case the stipend is not to exceed £75 per annum. The fund accruing out of the savings occasioned by these alterations is to be called the "reserved fund," and is to be devoted to the purposes of general education. It is estimated that this fund may pro- bably amount to £ 58,00;). The noble lord concluded an address marked by unusual clearness and self possession, in the followsng terms -ti He had now gone through the main provisions of the Bill which he had had the honor- of submitting to the consideration of the House. He did not shrink from avowing the principles of appropriation, from attacking sinecures in whatever quarter they were found nor from de- claring that those who did no work should have no pay He conscientiously believed that many of its provisions were calculated to give to Protestantism, and to that very Church which they (the Ministers) were represented as desiring to rob and pillage, sources of vitality and strength which had been long dried up. He declared from his conscience, I tnat it tie ttiougtu tne measure calculated to operate against the interests of real religion, no one would more rejoice than he should at its failure, and no one not confident of its success would venture to move, as he now did, that leave be given to bring in a Bill for the better regulation of Ecclesiastical Revenues, and for the moral and religious education of the people of Ireland." Sir H. HARDINGE said that he should not offer any opposition to the introduction of the Bill, but thought it right to declare his unqualified objection to the appropriation clause, and expressed his con- fidence that the measure would never receive the sanction ot the legislature. Mr HUME encouraged the noble lord to proceed, and contended that the principle adopted was equit- able. Mr SHAW strenuously asserted his objection to the views of the Government, and challenged the decision at once of the question of an Establishment for Ireland, rather than raising the question on payments of 51, and lOt. Mr WALKER considered that the measure, so far from injuring the Protestant Church in Ireland, would materially serve it. Lord STANLEY deprecated lengthened discussion in the present stage, expressed his surprise at the boldness of the noble lord, declaring, with respect to the appropriation clause, that it would meet his determined opposition, and concluded by compli- menting Lord Morpeth upon the mode in which he had developed the views of Government. After explanation from his lordship, Sir R, PEEL entered at some length into the sub- ject, in the course of which he strongly objected, as insufficient, to a stipend of 70i. per annum for a clergyman, contending that for his education and other circumstances he was rather entitled to Z300 per annum as a minimum. The honorable baronet, in conclusion, observed Did the noble lord believe that therewould be a sur- plus of 50,0001. after all existing interests were provided for, after paying the debts of the per petuity fund, after deducting thirty per cent, from the present revenues of the Church, after every allowance that was to be made for the great de- duction which would be the consequence of con- verting tue tithes into a rent charge, after the com- position had been opened, after the erection of the new churches and the new glebe houses they would require, and after the allotment of the curates in the new parishes The noble lord might depend upon it that he need not provide in detail for the disposal of that surplus, for his calculations were erroneous. He would say then, let them inakea new distribution ot the Church revenues, let them do away with curacies of G51. and let them tillow a sum amounting to about 25 )/. to enable a man in decency to main- tain himself and family, and the noble lord would find that he had no surplus. Let them maintain the principle and do away with all pluralities and with non-residence, and with all sinecures in the sense in which this word was used. Let them in every parish provide a clergyman to afford religious instruction and consolation, giving to him a decent maintenance, and there would be no surplus to appropriate. Lord J. RUSSELL, in replying to Lord Stanley and Sir Robert Peel expressed his confidence in the measure, and stated his readiness to incur any obloquy incident to the maintenance of it. Leave was then given to bring in the bill. The Isle of Man Corn Trade Bill was read a third time and passed. Bills for the more effectual recovery of Small Debts (Scotland) and for regulating and improving the forms of process in the Courts of Session, were brought in and read a first time. Other business was deferred. The House sat until two o'clock, and adjourned until Monday. HOUSE OF LORDS—MONDAY. The Western Australia Bill was read a first time. The Isle of Man Corn Importation Bill was read a first time. .Lord BROUGHAM, in reference to the Municipal Reform Bill, observed that he had two objections to the measure in the other House. The first was, that the Bill did not contain sufficient provision to prevent the iibuse of trust funds—the second was, that he could see no reason to exclude from the benefits of freedom those who had received their right to it by virtue of seven years' apprenticeship and servitude in some useful trade. His lordship intimated that, if the bill did not reach the upper House with alteiatious in these particulars, he should propose clauses to that effect. Viscount MELBOURNE, in reply to Lord Farn- ham, said that the Government hoped to be able to prepare a measure ot rish Municipal Reform that sessions.. On the motion ot ttie Marquis of LONDON- DERRY, similar returns to those moved for by Lord Mahon in the Commons, were ordered. After a short conversation, Viscount DUNCAN- NON said that he should bring forward the subject of enlarging the accommodation of the Honse of Peers to-morrow evening. The Earl of DEV ON s answer to the expression of their lordships satistactlon at his performance of the duties of clerk assistant was ordered to be entered in the Journals of the House. On the motion ot the Duke of RICHMOND the Select Committee on Oatlls was re-appointed. Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS—MONDAY. The report of the Drogheda Election Committee was brought up; Mr O Dwyer was declared not duly elected, and the Hon. U. Plunkett pronounced the'sitting member. The Hon. Mr R, Plunkett then took the oaths and his seat, as did Mr Vigors, for Carlow. Lord JOHN RUSSELL, in reply to Mr Wilks, said that nothing would be done tor the Dissenters this session, but in the ensuing one measures for a civil registration, for the regulation of marriages, xind relative to church rates, would be introduced. An altercation between Sir R. Inglis and Mr O'Connell, in consequence of language used by the latter, was put an end to by the interference of the Speaker. The Ipswich election came again under the con- sideration of the House, and Messrs O'Malley, Cook, Clamber, and Bond, were ordered to be brought up to-morrow and discharged. Samuel Bignold, Esq Edward Temple Booth, Esq., Mr Keith, John Pil- grim, and Mr Moneyi were ordered to attend at the bar of the House on Fnday. Mr PRAED'S motion, for copies of papers relative to the recal of Lord Heytesbury, was rejected, after an animated debate, on a division, by a majority of 254 against 175. CORPORATION BILL. On re-entering the Gallery we found the House in Committee on the Corporation Bill. Lord J. RUSSELL postponed the consideration of the 1011i clause, for the purpose of considering further the alterations which had been suggested. The iltit clause was then moved. Colonel SIBTHORPE proposed an amendment, to the effect that every elector should be made liable to the payment of all borough rates, parochial or otherwise, for the period of six months from the period at which any shop shall have been opened by him for the purpose of sale, show, or trade in the said borough. The clause was passed without opposition. Clause 12 was then moved. Lord J. RUSSELL was understood to say that the last day for the payment of the rates should, ac- cording to the suggestion of Sir R. Peel, be deferred from the last day of August to the 5th day of Septem- ber, Lind that the final revisal should take place on the 15th of September. After a few words from Lords Stormont and J. Russell the amendment was inserted. The clause was then ordered to stand part of the Bill. On clause 13 being read, Sir J. GRAHAM said he had to propose an amend- ment to this clause. He should propose- That the town clerk he empowered to examine the validity of-all claims to he inserted in the burgess roll, to make objection where he sluill seejust cause, and to sustain such objections on the revision of ,lie list before the mayor. "That the cost of making and sustaining these ob- jections by the town clerk shall be paid out of the borough funci." The amendment was withdrawn. After a few verbal amendments, and some desul- tory conversation between Mr Estcourt, Mr Grote, Lord J. Russell, Capt. Pechell, Mr Borthwick, Lord Stormont, Mr C. Buller, ttc. the clause, as amended, was agreed to. The next clause being read, was deferred. The Speaker resumed the Chair, and the House pro- ceeded to the other Orders of the Day. ROMAN CATHOLIC MARRIAGES B'LL. Aft.er a short conversation upon this Bill, in which Colonel Percival, Mr Warburton, Mr Lynch, Mr Aglionby, and Mr Sheil took part, the gallery was cleared for a division, but none took place, and the Bill passed. The House adjourned at two o'clock. HOUSE OF LORDS—TUESDAY. The Building Committee was re-appointed, on the motion of Viscount DUNCANNON, and the state- ment of Sir 11. Smirke referred to them.

Mr HUME withdrew his motion relative to offi- cial appointments- Lord J. RUSSELL, in reply to some observations of Sir R. Peel, acknowledged the fair course the hon. baronet and those who acted with him had pur- sued relative to the Municipal Corporation Bill. MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS BILL. m rwl(, The consideration of the 14th clause was re- sumed. A long conversation ensued upon the subject of employing the revising barristers, ap- pointed under the Reform BIll, to revise the lists of burgesses. „ The Committee divided-Ayes, 86 -Noes, 54— Majority, 32. Clauses 15, 16, 17 and 18, were put and carried, after several verbal amendments, agreed to without a division. Clause 19 was then put from the chair. Mr H. HUGHES proposed an amendment, to the effect that the Members of Parliament for the time being, together with the recorder and magistrates of the borough, should form members of the town council; but after a short conversation, in which Lord Howick, Mr Scarlett, and Sir E. Knatchbull took part, the amendment was withdrawn. Mr BORIHWICK proposed another amendment, to the effect that all the present members of each Corporation should be added to the new council. After a few words from Mr Rice and Mr C. Buller, this amendment was also withdrawn. Captain BERKELEY then moved the following amendment, "That after the words 'of such borough" be added, 'provided such persons are not in holy orders, licensed Dissenting Ministers, officers ot customs, stamps, excise, or in the post oilice, aild that any person taking holy orders or accepting any office as aforesaid shall vacate and resign any ministerial office to which he or they may have been elected. Sir R. PEEL then rose to propose his amendment, relating to the qualification of members of the town council:—"That no person in those towns which were divided into wards should be elected a member of the town council unless he was possessed, tl1 real or personal property, or in both, of £ 1,000, ftr was rated within the borough to the amount* if 1:40 a, year and that no person in those towns which were not divided into wards should be elected a inein- her of the town council who was not possessed of £500 in real or personal property, or in both, or who' was not rated to the amount of £ 20a year." (Cheers.^ The House divided-Ayes, 204—Noes 267 -Majo-' rity, 63. On our re-admission to the gallery we found Clauses 19, 20, 21, were then passed. Clause 22 having been put, Lord STANLEY rose, and said that he had an amendment to put, of so plain and simple a nature that it could not occupy the House long. He would move that between the word every" and the word year," the word alternate" be inserted. The Committee divided, when there appeared- For the amendment 176—Against it 220-Alajoi-ity 44.

CLANDESTINE MARRIAGES. Mr Sergeant JACKSON obtained leave to bring in a Bill to amend an Act of the Parliament of Ireland, made in the ninth year of his late Majesty King George the Seoond, for more effectually preventing clandestine marriages. BOROUGH OF YARMOUTH. Mr R. WASON presented a petition, praying that the petition which he presented on a former evening, from 1,300 electors of the borough of Great Yar- mouth, should be referred to a Select Committee. Mr PRAED took that opportunity to state that it was wholly impossible such a number of signatures as 1,300 could have been obtained to any petition without some underhand work having been employed. The other orders of the day having been disposed of, the House adjourned at One o'clock.
The following is extracted from a clever work called the Machinery of Lm(1 Mailing, and affords an admirable specimen of satire upon the verboseness of legal fonni;- "If a man would, according to law, give to another an orange, instead of saying, '1 give you that crange,' which one would think would be what is called in legal phrase- ology, -an absolute conveyance of all right and title therein,'the phrase would run thus:—'I give you all and singular my estate and interest, rih-, title, tnd claim, and advantage of and in that orauge, with all its rind, skin, juice, pulp, and pips, and oIl right and advantages therein, with full power to bite, cut, suck, and otherwise eat the same, or give the same away, as tully and effectualiv as I the said A B am now entitled to bit,- cul, suck, or other- wise eat the sanie oi-ange, or give the same away, with or without its rinit, skin, juict, pulp, aud pipe, anything heretofore or hereillafter, or In any other deed or deeds, instrument or instrument" of what nature or kind soever, to the contrary in any wise, notwithstandingwith much more to the sa(ne etY(--ct. SLich is the language of I,xwyei-r, and it is very gravely held by the must learned men among them, that by the omission of any of these words the right to the said orange would not pass to the person or wliose use th sauie was intended."
