ROCKETS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE AND GUARDIAN. SIR,— I think you may be interesied in having a short account of some experiments made on ihv plan and recommended (hut which had before been tried, I think, in Cornwall), of using Rockets to convey lines from ships to the shore. Oil Tueid.iy last Mr G. Gyngell (who has been giving a display of fire.works at Swansea) prepared several rockets, and a la ge company assembled on the sands to witness their power. The result of the day's expe rimeuls prove the thing to he perfectly practicable hut, according to the size of the rocket so must the line be, and a belter means of coding the rope must be adopted. The line was carried from 120 to 3!)8 yards, and the rocket which carried the rppe 30» yards Wiis a very large one lb* and Would ai about 5!)G of elevation have carried the rope pro- bably 500 yards. This was rather a heavy cord. One rocket, which broke its line, shot forward G25 yards. I do trust the object may be persevered in and adopted. I am, sir, Your obedient servant, Bryn Sifi, near Swansea, HOBERT BY EllS. 13th Feb. 1838. --Z-
VICE"CHANCELLOR'S COURT. Ftn. 15. MURPHY V. ELLIOT. Mr K. Bruce said he was instructed by Mr Murphy to apply for an injunction ex parte to restrain a piracy of his famed "Weather Alma- nack." The pirated copy had been pub'iely so (i for one penny each in the streets, and wotild be found on comparison to he but slightly varied by a few colourable alterations from Mr Murphy's original. His Honour said he had himself looked into the almanack of the plaintiff, and observed, on a com- parison with that 01 the defendant, it would be found that the many blunders of the former were copied into the defendant's book; and though there might arise a question whether a plaintiff C, iiiid have protection to a copyright of what was manifestly wrong, still the fact of the very blunders being pirated also justified the Court in interfering c.r parte. His Honour le- remarked that the predictions in the original had been once or twice wonderfully right, It was only wonderful they were not more frequently wrong. He believed the notoriety of the book had arisen from the fortunate guess on the coldest day of the season, that the thermometer would then indicate "probably the lowest degree of temperature." Injunction granted.

LITERATURE. Sketches of Young Gentlemen. With six illustra- tions by Phiz," small 8vo. pp. 76. London: Chapman and Hall. V There are a funny set of funny young gentlemen in Cockney-land, who are very clever at funny -ney writing, and fond of giving themselves funny names. Boz, of course, comes first. "Who the dickens 13oz could be, Puzzled many a learned elf; Until time solved the mystery. And showed that Box was Dichen's self." Thus sang Boz himself; or at least it was so said or sung for him, in the Miscellany, which he edits for Bentley. And the "mystery," although un- folded, has detracted nothing from the charm of his productions. Next to him came Quiz who stuck to the young ladies classifyin.- those "interesting members of the artfmal kingdom and by the aid of the pencil of Phiz, sketching them in every attitude, and colouring them in every shade. We remember to have seen, somewhere or other, the question asked, whether it were likely in the natural order of things, that the names of Alaric Attila," should meet in matrimony with" Zilla Madonna;"—a circumstance which we presume had been asserted by some one to have once taken place; (hough the fact appeared to ue doubted by the querist. For ourselves we rather reverse the question, and a*k whether it be possible that Boz, Quiz, and Phiz, can belong to more than one person ? goz we have already proclaimed and now we ask, who the dickens Quiz cAn be ? Boz nobody will deny," is one of the greatest quizzes of the age: — one of the greatest, because while quizzing he 1 only speaks the truth. The writings of Quiz are said to equal those of Boz. -1 Say can we have a second Boz? 0 no. we cannot; and that's poz!" We humbly submit that this couplet finds Boz guilty o( the second charge. How the dickens, in- deed, is he to escape i ? The question of Phiz would lead us too far. But if Boz has thus been found guilty of two things, we may easily surmise that in these his palmy days. he has palmed that cognomen on some sketcher to suit his own wicked purposes. J" C)foircumstantiat evidence we have also various kinds; one of which is that Chipuian and Hall havti been his chapmen in publishing all the original productions bearing these outlandish namp., There are bounds however, which even the fun- niest mortals cannot pass. Unable to invent another name, he now produees Slietf-hes of Youtig Gentlemen, w-iieli he Jedicates "to the young ladies of the United King.tottrof Great Britain and Ireland; also THE Y IUXCHLADIES OF THE PitIV- CIPXLITY or WALES, and Hkewise the Young Ladies resident in the fg"es of Guernsey, Jersey, Aldernev, anrl Sark:" and'the only single clue he gives us to both his christian and his surname is, that "your Dedicator st, all ever pray, &c." Which, "&c." means probably, that he will note every phiz, and do his bast to quiz, every man, woman and child, in all the above-mentioned loca- lities, that come in his way. Ilark this "goung ladies of the Pirncipality of tvales For why should this b ok be dedicated to you, unless you also were quizzed in the former volume ? and un- less the phizzes of the young gentlemen in the same domain were be-phizzed irl the present one. Shall we follow thiuketcher throllICh all the rami- fications of his subject ? The bashful young gen- tleman" too much annoys us. The out-and out young gentleman*' is too fond of low life. "The very friendly young gentleman" is often a tiresome acquaintance. "Tne military youngentleman" is toofoopish. The political yotinggentleinan" is a noodle. The domestic young gentleman," an ass. "The censoring young gentleman," as bad. (To which class, Boz, Quiz, or Phiz, or whatever be YOllr alias ntl%v, do u-c belong? To one, perhaps, which you have omitted to describe,—the squea- mish.) Well, but next comes one of the author's i Own class, Elie tunny young g'O'ntleman;" and as the twinkling, sparkling, laug'itng eyes of ''the young ladies ot the Principality of Wales," seem to say they should like to knolv him, squeamish though we be, we-are also the obliging young- gen- tleman, (anotlierclass not described,) and, therefore, we will introduce him to them. Young ladies, the funny young gentleman !— As one funny young gentleman will serve as a sample of all funny young gentlemen, 'e purpose merely to note down the conduct and behaviour of an individual specimen of this class, whom we happened to meet at an annual family Christmas party in the course of this very-last Christmas that ever came. H We were all seated round a blazing fire which crackled pleasantly as the guests talked merrily and the urn steamed cheerily—for, beiug an old- fashioned party, there teas an urn, and a teapot ■ besides-witen there came a postman's knocli at • the door, so violent and sudden, tha-t it startled the whole circle, and actually caused two or three very interesting and most unaffected young ladies to scream aloud and to exhibit many afflicting synipcoms of terror and distress, until they had been several times assured by their respective adorers, that they were in no danger. We were about to remark that it was surely beyond post- time, and roust have been a runaway knock, when our host, who had hitherto been paralysed with wonder, sank into a chair in a perfect ecstacy of laughter, and offered to lay twenty pounds that it was that droll dog Griggins. He had no sooner said this, than the majority of the company and all the children of the house burst into a roar of laughter too, as if some inimitable joke flashed upon them simultaneously, and gave vent to various exclamations of—To be sure it must be Griggins, 8nd bow like him that was, and what spj/its he was always in! with m--ny- other commendatory re- marks of the like nature. "Not having the happiness to know Griggins, we became extremely desirous to see so pleasant a fellow, the more especially as a stout, gentleinan with a powdered head, who was sitting with his breeches buckles almost touching the hob. whis- pered us he was a wit of the first water, when the door opened, and Mr Griggins being announced, presented himself, amidst another shout of laughter and a loud clapping of hands from the younger branches. This welcome he acknowledged by sundry contortions of countenance, imitative of the clown in one of the new pantomimes, which were ao extremely successful, that one stout gentleman rolled upon an ottoman in a paroxysm of delight, protesting, with many gasps, that if somebody didn't make that fellow Griggins leave off, he would be the death of him, he knew. At this the company only laughed more boisterously than before,and as we always like taaccommodate our tone and spirit if possible to the humour of any society in which we find ourself, we laughed with the rest, and exclaimed, 'Ob! eapital, capital r as loud as any of them- "When he had qllite exhausted all beholders, Mr Griggins received the welcomes and congratu- lations of the circle, and went through the needful introductions with much ease and many puns. This ceremony over, he avowed his intention of sitting in somebody's lap unless the young ladies made room for him oil the sofa, which being done, af'er a great deal of tittering and pleasantry, he squeezed himself among them, and likened his con dition to that of love among the roses. At this novel jest we all roared once more. You should consider yourself highly honoured, sir,' said we. I Sir,' replied Mr Griggins, 'you do me proud.' Here everybody laughed again and the stout gen- tleman by the 6re whispered in our ear that Grig- gins was making a dead set at us. "The tea thines havine been removed, we all sat down to a round game, and here Mr Griggins shone forth with peculiar brilliancy, abstracting other peop'e's fish, and looking over their hands in the most comical maimer. He made one most excel- lent joke in snuffing a candle, which was neither more not less than setting tire to the hair of a pale )'olln'g gentleman who sat next him, and afterwards his pardoo with considerable hoinour, As the younsc gentleman could not see the joke how- ever, possibly in consequence of its being on the top of his own head, it did not go off quite as well as it might have done indeed, the young gentle- man was heard to murmur some general references to "impertinence," and a "rascal," and to slate the number of h;8 lodgings in an angry tone—a turn of the conversation which might have been productive of slaughterous consequences, if a young lady, betrothed to the young gentleman, had not used her immediate influence ttl brillg about a reconciliation: emphatically declaring in an agitated whisper, intended for his peculiar edifi.-a-^ tion but audible to the whole table, that if he went on in that way, she never would think of him other- wise than as a friend, though as that she must always regard him. At this terrible threat the young gentleman became calm, and the young lady, overcome by the revulsion of feeling, instantane- ously fa in ted. Mr Griggin's spirits were slightly depressed for a short period by this unlooked-for result of su. h a harmless pleasantry, but being promptly elevated by the attentions of the host and several glasses of wille, he soon recovered, and became even more vivacious than before, insomuch that the stout gen- tleman previously referred to, assured us that although he had known him since he was that hih (soinelhing smalleMhan a nutmeg-grater), he had never beheld him in such excellent cue. "When the round gime and several games at blind man's buff which followed it were all over, and we were going down to supper, the inexhausti- ble Mr Griggins produced a small sprig of iiiisletoe from his waistcoat pocket, and commenced a general kissing of the assembled females, which occasioned great commotion and much excitement. We ob- served that several young gentlemeu-- including the young gentleman with the pale countenance—were greatly scandalised at this indecorous proceeding, and talked very big among themselves in corners and we observed too, that several young ladies when remonstrated with by the aforesaid young gentlemen, called each other to witness how they had struggled, and protested vehemently that it was very rude, and that they were surprised at Mrs Brown's allowiag it, and that they couldn't bear it, and had no patience with such impertinence. But such is the gentle and forgiving nature of woman, that although we looked very narrowly for it, we could not detect the slightest harshness in the subsequent treatment of Mr Griggins. Indeed, upon the whole, it struck us that among the ladies he seemed rather more popular than before "To recount all the drollery of Mr Griggins at supper, would fill such a tiny volume as this, to the very bottom of the outside cover. How he drank out of other people's glasses, and ate of other people's bread, how he frightened into screaming convulsions a little boy who was sitting up to supper in a high chair, by sinking below the table and suddenly re-appearing with a mask on; how the hostess was really surprised that anybody could find a pleasure in tormenting chi: 1ren, and how the host frowned at the hostess, and felt convinced that Mr Griggins had done it with the very best intentions; how Mr Griggins explained, and how everybody'sgood-humour was restored but the child's;—to tell these and a hundred other things ever so briefly, would occupy more of our room and our readers' patience, than either they or we can conveniently spare. Therefore we change the subject, merely observing that we have offered no description of the funny young gentle-^ man's pet-sonal appearance, believing that almost every society has a Griggins of its own, and leav- ing all readers to supply the deficiency, accord- ing to the particular circumstances of their par- ticular case." And now,"young ladiesof Principality of Wales," having allowed you so long an interview with one whom at length it is discovered is your familiar, and whom you are ever delighted to meet for miste- toe purposes, wheiher at misletoe times or not, you must excuse our not mentioning more particularly the theatrical," poetical," Blld I'throwing off" young gentlemen; nor even "the young ladies' young gentleman." And need we apologize for this neg'igence? Not at all. For three things are certain fit. All "the young ladies of the Principality of Wales" ought to buy these Sketches of young gentlemen; though they are without any author's name; and though they are with "illustrations by Phiz." 2nd. All the young ladies aforesaid, not only ought to do, but will do, as aforesaid. And, 3rd. They have our strongest recommendation thereto; for it is the funniest book, and written by one of the funniest young men that ever any Phiz be-phizzed. The Farmer's Magazine and Monthly Journal of proceedings affecting the Agricultural Interest. February, 1838. The present number contains itll usual quantum of ori-iDal and praotical papers on agriculture. It is also embellished with an engraving of Acfaeon, the sire of Sir J. BosvveH's General Ciiasse to- gether with sections of a machine for draining land by steain poiver, of which a full descripiton is given. We extract the short account of the York- shire method of curing bacon, as it may probably be serviceable to many ofoirr readers. "The pigs are (as they call it) hungered 21 and sometimes 36 hours, before they are killed, then hung 21 hours in a cool place. They are cut up and conveyed to leaden bowls, and having with the hand wiped salt over the swarth (skinj care is taken to stop the salt and saltpetre into the shank ends, in order that it may effectually reach the bone. The flesh side is then turned uppermost, covered with salt, and sprinkled with saltpetre- For a 2) stone pig, the proportions are one stone of the former and one pound ot the latter. After lying about a week, the bacon is all removed—that which has been uppermost is put lowest, and more salt is added to those parts from which it may have disappeared. In three or four weeks it is fit to hang up to dry, and it has never, in a single instance, been known to fail. Mind the following obvious rules: — 1st The pig must fast; this relieves the vessels that,ina loaded state, are apt to putrify. d-The kdln; must be qllick and with- out irritation. 31 Thoroughly cooled before salting. 4th-ot rubbed, as this only excites the putrefaction process, and you never can rub salt through the skin. 5th Placed in lead or stone if at hand. 6th—Stop the salt well into the shank ends, and move it and add sail, as before directed, frequently." The Sijortsman. February, 1838. Loudon: 19, Old Boswell Court. Besides all matters of immediate interest to the lovers of sports and pastime", the preseut number contains some exceedingly interesting papers on general topics. Among original anecdotes of the late John Mytton occur the following:- "Two labouring men who were working in the fields near his estate, saluted him when passing them; he accosted one of them with "Throw up your hat which the man refused. The other who knew Mytton's ways, said Dang it, here be mine, slnp at her!" and casting his hat in the "air, got it well peppered. Mytton, by way of remuneration, threw the man a sovereign, which liberality so com- pletely mortified his fellow labourer, that he drawled out, Ah, by guin had I a kllowd un been such a good un, lie should ht,ldfin- "loia an welcome;" then addressing Mytton, who had just reloaded, he added 1, please ytir honour, you may have moiu now, if-" but before he could finish, Mytton had kicked the hat out of his hands and fired ofboln barrels at it which rendered it a complete muss of tatters from the salute, and Mytton walked otfvery coolly,leaving chawbacou to make the best of his tardy acquiescence, staring like a fool. "From the known hospitality of the Halston Squire, mendicants of all descriptiol's paid a visit en passant. Two of the fraternity, one a collier, and the other a merchant's seaman, sought relief there, and unex- pected!y were closely aild itigeiiiously interrogated by Mytton himself, as to their former avocations) later pursuits, and present pretensions to charity. The collier, or pretended one as he proved, was found to be no object for relief, and Mytion returned in doors, where he immediately loaded a fowling, piece with blank cartridge, and going to the window, told the fellow he was a confounded cheat, observ- ing" he felt convinced he came for the purpose of robbery, and at the same time prescntmg the piece, threatened to shoot him. The nd" Itilleavoui-ed to deprecate the assumed anger of Mytton, who ap- peared the more enraged at the excuses made, and at last fired at the imposter. Seriously frighteued, the feltow dropped down, fully pursuaded he was wounded somewhere or other, and for a short time remained Oil, the ground, until some of the servants at the instigation of the master, with a smart lash or two, convinced him he was ill the wrong box. He quickly got up, and with a slight examination of his own dear self, immediately took the hint to make himself scarce, perceiving he had inadvertently arawn himself into the precincts ot "Castle Dangerous." The sailor seemed to enjoy the other's discomfiture, and was relieved in money and kind, with a recommendation to a person iu London, who soon got him a ship. N]Yttol",s butler who had a good berth of it, came in at times for some queer knock-i. He had once boasted that up one sbouid rob hiro, and having been receiving some money from Mr L. J- of Oswestry, was returning home by the Ellesmfie road. On approaching the green gates, he was suddenly stopped with "Stand and deliver, or I'll let daylight through you." The suddenness of the dcirtind, with the determined hearing of the robber, caused his courage to ooze out at his fingers' ends, Have mercy on me," exclaimed he, and with much meekness suffered the loss of his watch and money. When he g-ut home, Mytton was taking some refresh- ment, and seeing him in a agitated state, enquired what was the matter? Being ohlied to confess the loss, it being Mytton's money, he told him he had resisted until overpowered; when Mytion pro- ducing the watch and cash, asked him if he was not a preity fellow to let a single person rob him. Like .JFk FalstafF, he then pretended to be the valiant lion that knew the lawful prince.' We never before knew Mrs CornweZZ Baron- Wilson, (who is the genuine sporting Baron here?) as a sporting lady. Her song, however, is worth quoting. HUNTING GLEE. The rosy Morn is breaking, The scent lies on the ground; From slumbers li^ht awaking, Cp start the caler Lound; Ti,iloo-lial:oo The Stag is up! pursue O'er brake and dingle hieing, Fast bounds the panting Deer; Like Beauty flying When man pursues too near IlaUoo-haUoo'.—t'aitoo Forward !-the game pursue! Faint-while the tears arc streaming* The noble Stag gives way;— Their eyes with conquest gleaming. The Dogs surround their prey W-re-off,-ware-off,-Iet go!- The Huntsman strikes the blow The Sportsman's pastime ending, Both wearied Steed and Hound Their homeward path slow wending. Retrace the well-trod ground W—hoop—w—hoop come back To kennel, is the track And when night's shadows falling The landscape curtains round, The morning's sports recalling O'er cups with ale well crowu'd, With hip! liip! li-1) hurrah! The Sportsman ends his day. The Stag is said to shed tears when dying. We conclude our extracts with a brief account of a somewhat novel contest A bear was introduced before the party assem- bled to witness the sports, and a man undertook to encounter it without any arms, save a gauntlet made of buffilo horn, called a jetty. The bear was a large one of its species, and had been kept with- out food for two days, in order to render it more fierce. When first released from its den, it paced the ground with a sullen aspect, occasionally looking up at the spectators, and uttering a low dismal roar, but showed no symptoms of positive exasperation. The moment the man entered, it paused, erected it. self on its hind legs, aud yelled loudly. The Ilindoo was a tall, powerful young man, with extremely long- arms, a fine expansive chest, and a clear beam- ing eye, expressive of cool delel mination aud wary caution. 11 He first commenced operations by walking round his adversary, sometimes advancing, then retreating —now quickening his pace, then suddenly stopping, all the while distracting the attention of his anry foe by numerous contortions of body, occasionally clapping h:3 hands, striking his chest, and springing from the ground with an agility which would have surprised the most accomplished maitre de ballet in Europe. His shaggy opponent at length becoming enraged, advanced upon him with a shriek of rage, and extended a paw to grasp his hip; but the Hindoo, with the rapidity of lightning, planted a blow upon the bear's cheek, which cut open the skin, and sent Bruin staggering several paces backwards. The poor animal seemed for a moment stunned with surprise, and before it could recover it received atibtliei- ti-emetidous hit on the muzzle, which caused it to turn and run to the corner of the enclosure. After shaking its nose aud sneezing, it once more erected its body, having now its back supported by the bamboo railings. The man tried all sorts of gesticulations, suddenly refreatingand fillliugdown, to draw his adversary from its position, but in vain. The auimal was evidently awaie of the advantage of presenting to its antagonist only one point of attack, and therefore would not budge from its corner; but, covering its bead with its large shaggy paws, the Hindoo champion found it difficult to deliver a blow where it would'be likely to be effectual. Find- ing that he could not rouse the be rr, he sprang for- ward and gave it a smart kick iu the flank this caused the animal suddenly 111 depress its paws in an instant the jetty was rattling on its hqad with a severity which caused it to yell for several seconds. It now lay on the earth with its muzzle in the comer and its back towards its conqoerer, who disda nin- to strike a fallen enemy, made his salaam to the spectators with a grace peculiar to all the Eastern races, and retired from the scene of combat amidst their unanimous acclamations. The bear was a good deal punched but lis skull was too har<J to be crack- ed with the blow of a fist. LIST OF NEW WORKS, Published in London from Feb. 1 to 15.

Diodorus Siculus gives an account of this palm grove, as it was described by Ariston, who was sent by Ptolemy to descry the coast of Arabia upon the Red Sea. The place was held in great reve- rence on account of the paims, which grew there in great number. A'l the country around was exposed to violent heats, and was destitute of good water but in this spot, he says, "there are a number of springs and scantlings of water, which fall as cool to the taste as snow," The .,ame history of this palm grove and foun- tains is given by Strabo; and they must have been the same mentioned by Moses, for we do not read that there was any other part of the region that had either such a grove of trees or such water. Thus it was in the time of the Israelites, and so it was found to be in the time of Diodorus and Strabo, and thus we find it at this day. Monconys, in his return through the desert from Mount Sinai, took a louerway to tlw south lowards a place now called Tor, where seems to he the dis- trict described by Mrabo and Diodorus, near P<<rc n. He mentions a valley, which he passed through; and in this valley, towards the end, he saw the rocks with ancient inscriptions and at last camp to a place which he seeins very justly to suppose the Eliin of the Scriptures, Where" he says, are still the twelve fountains, and a number of tine palm trees." Bishop Pococke also visited this district, and says that in going southward towards Tor, and about a league from it towards the north, there is a well of good water, and all about it are a great number of date trees or pa'm'" and several springs of salt water, where the 3ionks have a garden. The Greeks, as well as some others, are of opinion that this is Eiiiii.Bi-yant. THE NEW STOVP. Folt HEATING.—The in ventor and patentee has exhibited one of these at the Institute of British Architects. It was in the form of an upright cylinder, about sixteen inch-es in length, (not including the stand.) and six in diameter, calculated to burn for twenty-four hours with a constant radiation of about 100 degrees 01 heat. Paper in immediate contact with the ex- terior of the apparatus was soon scorched, but would not ignite. The cbst of the fuel for twenty- four hours to produce the above quantity of heal will be from threepence to sixpence of the appa- ratus about twenty-five shillings. On the top is an arrangement called a regulator, to increase or diminish the draft, whereby the time for the con sumption of the same quantity of fuel may be pro- longed to thirty-six or fortv-eight hours; but, 01 course, the radiation w ill be decreased in the same ratio as the time is extended. Sufficient heat can be generated by this inexpensive fuel (and which, judging from the space in a burner for twenty-four hours, cannot be bulky) to melt the metal which contains it. The patentees have secured its appli- cation to the raising of steam, and various other purposes. The inventor stated that no unpleasant effluvia, no deleterious fumes from the combustion, are felt. He uses one constantly in his bedroom, in which there is no chimney. He stated, also, that he had placed a burning taper within the appara- tus, near to the vent. and that it continued burning as before. The residue of the combustion is small in proportion to the fuel. In about fourteen days the patents will be executed, and the inventor will then publish to the world his secret of fourteen years, which want of capital for nearly the whole of that period had prevented him perfecting and bringing into tise.-Atlttv.

AWFUL SHII'WUECK A\D LOSS OF LIFE. -Bv the tdiip Troy, which arrived at Liverpool on Wednesday the l-lth inst., from Charlestown, w e have the following Particulars of the melancholy loss of a vessel, name unknown, which was run f>u; of by the Troy, oil the 11Íg.ht of Saturday, the 23..d ult.; they are taken from the log book of the Troy Strong breezes from South, and rain quite dark. Soon after 11 p. m. ran foul of a small brig, not previously seen, alttiojgh we had two men on the lop-galiant forecastle, pl^ed there to keep a look- out; the brig swung immediately round upon our starboard or weather bow. Some one on board the brig called out to put our helm hard up, which was immediately done, and the brig was clear of us at once; she sank rapidly, and before we had passed each other her hull had sunk with all on board, and before she was half our length astern her topsails were out of sight, and nothing but some very small articles floating from her, nothing large enough to support a man. Two men were observed struggling iu the water, but were lost sight of before we could afford any relief. It was almost instantaneous, and could not have been thrqe minutes from the time we came in contact before she sank entirely out of sig-ht put the iship round as soon as possible, but could see nothing. It blew quite fresh at the time, with rain, the ship under all sail, except top-gallant sails; the brig had topsails only, We struck stem on, but it all happened so quickly that we cannot positively say which way the brig was standing.

Numerous flights of wild swans, from ten to eighteen in number, have been seen iu the vicinity of Cardigan, and several have been shot; their skins have been sold for 3's. and 3s. 6d. a piece. None of these northern stran- gers have visited this country since the winter of 1829, but they were not nearly as numerous then. Two beautiful specimens of the Snow, or White Nun, fMergus Albellus) a male and feuule, were shot by W. H. Webley Parry, Esq. of Noyadd Tre- fawr, on the river Tivy and a few days previous, the Rev. H. Howell shot a Goosander,(Mergus ltler- ganser.) The presence of these rare birds is a proof of the severity of the weather in this usually mild climate. Tenhy was last night visited by a storm of terrific violence, which has prevailed during the whole of this day (Thursday). The sea presents an appearance truly awful, and the cold is intense. A fine sloop, the George the Fourth, of Carmarthen, laden with lead ore, was driven on shore on the north beach, immediately below the town, about four o'clock this morning. The crew are all saved, but the vessel is a toial \Vreck.-( From a Corres- pondent of the Carmarthen Journal.)

THE ALPHABET.—The 21st verse of the7.th chap- ter of Ezra contains all the letters of the alphabet. The verse is as follows:—And 1, even I, Artaxerxes 1 he king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of Heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily. Lord Egremmont has resolved on making vast improvements on the extensive estates in Somerset- shire, bequeathed to him by his uncle the late earl.

Mr Uyng, who sat in the House upwards of 50 years since, must hide his diminished head before this reru old Whig," and who, after all, is merely a Radical, and a disciple of Mr Grote's Jack in the box. The health of Prince Talleyrand is said still to inspire his relatives with- serious alarm. The aged diplomatist's faculties have lately become very much enfeebled, und his lung! it is feared" will refuse their oflice. He passed the night of Tuesday very uneasily.

SLANG EX,r(tAORI)l \ARY.- Last night a cabman and a gentleman were disputing about their fare, in the Westminster Road. The cabman insisted on having a higher fare than the gentleman felt inclined to pay. After jhe gentleman had paid the cabman what he deemed sufficient, he walked away.

ALMANAC MAKERS—MURPHY V. MORRISON.— 1 he doer of the famous Francis Moore, called upon the editor ot a rival almanac, to endeavour to fathom the depths ot his mystery. He was cunningly inquiring into the secret of his calculations, when the other bluntly exclaimed, "I see "hat you are driving, at Dr. inloore I You wish to know my system. I will tell you what it is. I take your almanac, and. for every day that you predict one thing, I predict the very reverse; and (he con- tinlled) I am qllite as often right as you are."

A day or two ago a little girl, belonging to MrNaylor, whitesmith, ofBart.sloy, put her tongue out to lick the ice which was upon the iron rails in frunt of Nlr house, in that town, when her tongue was immediately frozen fast to the rail. The poor littfe creature could not extricate herself without forcing a portion of the skin off her tongue which caused it to bleed profusely.—Leeds Intelligencer, Five children were poisoned, a few days ago, at Epinal, in the Vosges, in France, by sugar- plums containingarsenic, which weie given to thein by a woman dressed as a peasant, who "as a strano ger to the place. She had taken her departure be- fore the enormity was discovered, but the officers of justice are in pursuit of her. INSOLENCE PUNISHED.—A most gratifying in- stance of a gross outrage receiving condign and appropriate punishment occurred yesterday morning, in Curtain lload, Shoreditch. A cluster of low fellows who were jeering each other, and lipe tor any mischief, had assembled with their pails round a water-plug, when one of them pui posely placed himself ill tite way of a lady and gelltlemall, who were passing, and, on their coming up, he skipped aside, wilh u ery of "make rou.n, altd. with a jerk of his foot tilted a pail of water over the lower part of the lady's person. The gentleman who accom- panied her instantly turned round, and, after a moment's apparent hes-itatioii as to the mode of punishment he should indict, he seized the fellow by the iieck, ittiti by lUetin force bent down his head under the plug, where he he!d him until the half- drowned wretch was drenched from head to heels, to the infinite amusement of his companions, who, as usual, transferred their ridicule to the parly who got the worst of it. The gelllleman and lady walked away amid the impotent curses of their blackguard assai ant and the cheers of his delighted friends. SELF CONTROL V.

HYDROPHOBIA.—In-cases of bites from rabid dogs, when incision is ditlicult or impossible, or indeed in every case, we strongly recommend ihe application of a mixture of equal parts of pure and concentrated nitric and muriatic acids to the wounds, which should be opened with a probe, so as to insure the acid penetrating to the bottom of the puncture, and the action upon the parts to be kept up tor some time the puncture may then be laid open whcie possible, and discharge from the wounds promoted, often washing ihem with a strong solution of chloride of soda. Dr Buisson states positively, that when the symptoms of decided hydrophobia have appeared, placing the patient in a vapour bath about 120 or 127 of Fahrenheit has affected a cure we have not heard of this suggestion being iu auy case tried in England,—Hertford Journal,
