Robinson, a farmer, residing at Kskdalc-side, near Whitby, was left alone at home, following her avo cations, her husband having gone to Mgton market, and the servants being at the harvest fields. She was last seen by a Mr. Hill, of Iburndale, miller, who called at the house about half past ten o'clock. At noon, when the servants returned from the harvest field to dinner, they discovered the unfortunate woman laid lifeless upon the kitchen floor on her side, with her face towards thr; ground, surrounded by a pool of blood. On raising her body her neck was found severed from the trunk. The kitchen was all in a confusion, and the house ransacked. From a desk. which bore traces of the fingers of the murderer, being in several places stained with bloody finger marks, thirty-two sovereigns were abstracted, and a box be- longing to some of the servant men was broken open, and a pocket-book coniaining a quantity of silver, taken away, which they afterwards found about 200 yards below the house, in a field leading to the rail- road. Behind the kitchtvi lire a clasp knife, the handle of which was partly burnt, and the blade marked with blood, was found, with which, doubtless, the murderer had committed his crime. An inquest was held on the body on Wednesday, and also, by adjournment, oil Thursdav, when the jury returned a verdict of ilful murder against some person or persons unknown." Two Irish reapers, who had been seen near the house during the morning of Tuesday, were apprehended oil suspicion, and investigated by the Whitby magistrates, who remanded them until the coroner's inquest was concluded, when they were discharged. There arc several incidents (circum- stantial) relative to the murder, which stamp a strong conviction on the public mind that this atrocious crime has been the act of some person well acquainted with tbe premises, DIOCESE OF LLANDAFF.

A LUCKY RAIN (XOT WIND-FALL.)—On MondaY week, in consequence of the heavy rains that bad fallen during that morning and previous night, two lads left Perth in search of rabbits among the liauf-h-; of Karn, and during the day succeeded in capturing 300 pairs. The plan they took was exceedingly simple. They were well acquainted with the rabbit burrows about the Earn; and watching the gradual rise of the river, when it was within a few inches of a "hole," they, with a small spade, dug a channel for the water to flow into it, which immediately ejected the inmates, who were smartly captured on attempting to make their escape. A c irt conveyed the whole to Perth, where at an average they were sold for fully 4d. per pair. The disciples of Isaac Walton will be rejoiced to hear thntthcreisctpitatsportfof them in the Tivv, no less than 29 fine salmons having been taken with the fly. in the neighbourhood of Lampetcr, within this fortnight. THE LATE MR JAMES W OOD.—In ourlast nnmber we stated that a good local sketch of "Jemmy Wood" was much wanted, and expressed an opinion that it was a pity that our respected correspondent, Mr G. W. Counsel, of this city, did not carry out the intention which he expressed in the spring of 183o, of writing Mr Wood's biography. We have since learnc-d that Mr Counsel is now employed in writing Mr Wood's life, interspersed with a great variety of biographical memoirs and anecdotes of that most extraordinary person. Two emineut booksellers of Cheltenham have offered Mr Counsel < £ 500 for the copyright of the woi-k.-Glosler Chronicle. A legacy of C 1000 has been recently bequeathed to the Church Pastoral Aid Society, by the late Thomas Meyrick, Esq., of Le-ant, Cornwall, for the special benefit of the principality of IVales.Ilo-rnin(I Herald.

Conx AVERAGss.-O,-i Thursday week the import duty on foreign wheat reached the lowest point of Is. per qr., and of course an immense quantity of grain W'IS immediately release 1 from bond. In the port of London there was no less an arrival than 116,300 quarters of foreign wheat. FIRE AT SEA.—The ship India was destroyed by fire on the 19th July. 11 degrees, South latitude. The narrator of the dreadful occurrence after stating that a strange sail had been seen (the first for fourteen days\ s tys, 1 returned to the cabin, and had not sat above half an hour, when I was suprised by a cry for water by the second mate, who was running from the stair leading to the store-room towards the saloon. I immediately sprang towards the 'door of the stair which leads to the store-room, where the cause was but too apparent from the smoke and light. Not a moment was to be lost the men were immediately called aft, with all the pails and pitchers they could lay hold of. This was done with the utmost alacrity the supply of water was, however, far from sufficient. When 1 came forward all was a scene of confusion and despair, the woman wringing their hands in the most heart-rending manner, and this, mingling with the screams of the children, presented a scene it would be vain to attempt describing. During this interval guns of distress were fired to attract the attention of the vessel in the distance. But in the mean time we sent away the jolly boat, with five men, to overtake or attract her attention to our situation its it was apparent that unless she came to our assistance ovcrv soul on board must perish. They next commtlllHpd clearing the long-boat of pigs, goats, &c., which were tossed overboard. The boat was strong and heavy, and it was with difficulty got over the side. After it was over, it was immediately filled with the children and as many of the females as it could hold, with four men to row them towards the vessel, and the gig was lowered and lav off about fifty yards to prevent its being swamped. It was by this time cv ident that the vessel in view was aware of our situation, as she ap- peared to be bearing down upon us, though still about nine miles distance, and although to the wind- ward of ns, it was not unreasonable to conclude at the time, that our vessel would not float till sho reach, d us, as she was now one glowing mass of flame from stem to stem below, and rising through the hatches, mid running up the rigging with inertdible velocity. In less than one hour from the commence- ment of the fire her mainmast was lying over her lee- side, and the foremast, from being stayed to the jib- boom, was brought forward across her hows, and carrying a'ong with it the jib boom, of which I shall have occasion to speal; hereafter. Several of the crew and passengers who could swim were now floating out towards the vessel, and the bowsprit was literally crowded and down the martin- gale. Tho captain and the first mate had liy this tiiue taken the water, and nothing but despair was now depicted on every countenance. Amitnborof the men remained perfectly cool under these awful circumstances, but at the same time every one's atten- tion was devoted to his own individual safety. Fa- thers, mothers, and children might all be found in different positions, in scarch of and trusting to such means of deliverance as they thought best and a great number are now floating in all directions, on pie. es of wreck. A spare mast, which had been thrown over, hid upwards of twelve clinging to it, and as they were nearly all on one side, it was con- tinually revolving, which caused them always to drop off, and the whole, I believe, perished. The foremast, which was lying across the bows, was crowded, and also the jib-boom. I proceeded along the martingale and laid bold of a rope whether I went down or was pushed, I know not, but I slid down, and when near the water I found the rope too long, allowing me to go quite over the bead, and with the rolling of the vesst-t the next moment suspended about fivo or six feet. The writer of the narrative describes his sufferings after he contrived to reach the masti stating his belief that he remained in this most perilous con- dition upwards of an hour and a half. By tnis time the decks were all burned, and the boats of the strange vessel had reached them. So great was the rush that one of tve boats was upset, and upwards of five or six men drowned by this accident. Their own boat had now reached them. By the management of the second mate all left on the wreck were brought away safety. *<The strange vessel proved to be a French whaler for the South Sea Fishery, about the size of tlic India, and well found in provisions. Every attention was paid to the wants of those saved from n the wreck, of whom many were actually naked, and none had been able to save any thing. 'The total number on board the India was 211, of whom IS pe- rished—vix., lGsteerage, one cabin passenger, and the boatswain. "The fire originated thus—the second mate and one of the boys were drawing off some gin, and as the candle was too short for a lantern, they took it out, and when placing it, it fell between two barrels, where some of the spirits had been spilled, and in a moment the whole was in a blate, the store room being full of canvass and other combustibles. We arrived to-day in the harbour of Rio Janeiro. At the time of this accident we were 600 miles, from land, and our boats would not have held one third of the passengers, and so rapid were the flames that we could not save a single article of bread or water, nor even provide ourselves with a compass." No blame could be attributed to the captain or officers, who all did their utmost at first to extinguish the fire, and when that became hopeless, to save the lives of the passengers and crew.
