By reference to our advertising coluiiiii- it will be seen that the Subscription for the benefit of the Irish Clergy goes on with a degree of success which is gratifying to every Christian and benevolent man. The indefatigable, and extrelllcly judicious ex- ertions of our excellent Chancellor are beyond all praise, and it is to him that we unquestionably owe most of the success that has crowned the efforts in the cause of Religion. It is gratifying to observe the union of men of various political opinions in a cause like this. We observe the handsome donation of the Member for Merthyr with much pleasure-and, as humble friends to the cause which has thus called forth his benevolence, beg to offer him our tilanks. 1',1""#'# Sheriff and Deputy Sheriff for 1*30.
