TO MISS BIDDY FUDGE IN THE COUNTRY* Such sights and such wonders, oh Biddy, I've seen, My head's in a whirl, and I seem in a dream j E'en Argus's eyes would enough have to do, Were it merely to note each passing friend's bo. But windows and ladies bedizened so gay, And Beanx fluttering round in smartest array j, And buildings, that seem like the Tower of Babel, Oh t'expreas my delight I shall ne'er be able. Where first to begin, when so many bright streaks Are centred in each place, made rich by art's freaks, And nature to all has proved so prolific, Yet the pump-room can boast of strains so seraphic. So many bright start a galaxy making. To note each would, I fear, a vain undertaking Prove to be, who my long rigmarole am afraid Has already your patience very much tried. Terpsichore. bere her fairy foot sbowing, 'Till Aurora bursts forth in rosy tints glowing, The fair Belles glissading it oft and so lightly, That description falls short of their elegance greatly. The Rooms, oh so brilliant-the music so charming, The Concerts exstatic. the Crescents enchanting; In short, my dear Biddy, this City of beanty, Could not fail to delight, and I think would just suit ye. Swansea M.A.P. One of the amiable Fudge family in Wales. [We have presumed on the good humour of Miss Kitty O'Connor to take the liberty of abridging her epistolary effusion to Miss Biddy Fudge. We shall be always happy to hear from either of the ladies, but short bills upon sight are indispensable. J
TIIERUIS THE KiET-HOLE." -A shrewd and lively young belle was introduced a few evenings ago to a bom- bastic little youth, about as diminutive in his person as a man can well be. After conversing with her for some minutes he turned to leave the room, when, as he was on the point of opening the door, the young lady innocently observed, co Pray don't trouble yourself, there is the key- hole." A Presbyterian Minister, in the reign of King William III., performing public worship in the Tron Church, at Edinburgh, used this remarkable expression in his prayer —" Lord have mercy upon all fools and idiots, and particu- larly upon the Town Council of Edinburgh." HOUSEHOLD SERVICE OF A DOG. I say. stranger," said a cottage urchin to a Yankee pedlar, don't whistle that ere dog away." Why he aint no use no how, he's too ugly." O. but he saves heaps of work." co How 1" Why, be licks the plates and dishes clean, so that they never want washing, and mammy says she wouldn't part with him no how, for our new dog haint got used to mus- tard yet.Mon *'real paper. A BACKBITER'S PUNISHMENT.—The following is said to be an approved method of killing fleas :—" Place the animal on a smooth board, and pen him in with a circular hedge of shoemaker's wax, then, as soon as he becomes quiet, com- mence reading to him the doings of Congress during the session. and in five minutes he will burst with indignation. -American Paper. PUNNING.—There is a time for all things-punning among the number. Now, a pun perpetrated in a morning appears very unseasonable, and it is only your eager novices in the art who ever commit such a solecism, like an ardent schoolboy, letting off his squibs after breakfast, forestalling time and anticipating the night. We have known such a premature exhibitipn produce a fit of indigestion, not only in the person of the punster, but the victim at whom he has poked his fun." Puns and wax-candles shine the most brilliaintly in the evening. After-dinner puns are peris- taltic persuaders," and should invariably be introduced after the nut-crackers. As for any being bearing the semblance of humanity punning at a fish dinner at Blackwall, it is a wickedness, a malice prepense that would seem as incon- ceivable as improbable; and to thrust such a heartless mortal into the Thames to become live bait for whitebait, we should consider as justifiable homicide.—Bentley's Mis- cellany. On opening a vase lately discovered in the ruins of Her- culaneum, the learned Abbe Facciolati found an orange preserved in vinegar. It appears the Romans pickled oranges as we do gherkins. A FAIR TEETOTALLER.—There is a married lady, re- siding within twelve miles of Bath, who has adopted the total abstinence principle for several years, and has increased to the astonishing weight of 284 lbs., and yet is still active and energetic in the superintendence of her domestic duties. -Bath Chronicle. A soldier, in a newly-raised Irish corps, observed to his comrade, that a corporal was to be dismissed the regiment. Faith and indeed 1". replied the other, who's that sure t" Corporal Punishment, Honey," said the wag. A boy was asked, Does the leopard ever change his spots V 44 Oh* yes when he is tired of one spot he goes to another."—" In union there is strength," as the toper said when he poured the brandy into his water. THE MENDICITY MARKET.-Twins are looking up, but orphans are still below par. Blind men make but little progress-but their dogs, when properly trained, Ietch a great deal, and that, too, at a single bidding. Crossing- sweepers are firm, and still stick to their posts, though the Lascars have lately swept everything before them. The frozen-out gardeners are complaining bitterly of the mild- ness of the weather, Congreve. matches, since the rain, will not go off at all. Ballads are largely quoted-but somehow do not sell for more than a mere song. Begging- letters do not answer, though the chalk-writing on the pave- ment, especially the running-hand, goes off as rapidly as ever. Wooden legs are sent away begging whilst sailors, who have lost their arms, go crying about the streets, but find that London is not, exactly the place for alms-giving. Fiddlers continue to scrape as much as formerly but organs are turned to no profit, and the Scotch band, we are sorry to say, no longer pipes to the same tune that it used to. do. —Punch. There is a man in St. Andrews who is so great a liar that he even lies when he's asleep.
THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT. BY CHARLES DICKENS (BOZ). The first and second numbers of this amusing periodical have reached us. In acute, caustic observation, and hu- morous exaggeration, of all that renders our species ridiculous, either in mind or manners, the present work will fully sustain the reputation to which the writer is so emi- nently entitled. After having written so much, and so well, and pourtrayed, in elaborate and indiscriminating quiz, every trade and profession under the sun, Boz the inimitable Boz-is now in the field, apparently as fresh to amuse and delight as if the present was the first creation of his teeming brain. What or who Martin Chuzzlewit is, is more of the author's business to say than ours. We are not sufficiently ill-natured to spoil a capital joke by telling the secret to our pensive public," and by an un- friendly anticipation of the fact, take from the pleasure the reader is sure to receive by a perusal of it. Without any very serious violation of the confidence reposed in us, we may be allowed occasionally to exhibit such samples of the work as will pique curiosity without satisfying it. We will not withhold our readers from the pleasure and surprise of an introduction to a gentleman, whom the world terms- SHABBY GENTEEL." The gentleman was of that order of appearance, which is currently termed shabby-genteel, though in respect of his dress he can hardly be said to have been in any extremities, as his fingers were a long way out of his gloves, and the soles of his feet were at an inconvenient distance from the upper leather of his boots. His nether garments were of a blueish gray-violent in its colours once, but sobered now by age and dinginess-and were so stretched and strained in a tough conflict between his braces and his straps, that they appeared every moment in danger of flying asunder at the knees. His coat, in colour blue, and of a military cut, was buttoned and frogged up to his chin. His cravat was, in hue and pattern, like one of those mantles which hair-dressers are accustomed to wrap about their clients during the pro- gress of the professional mysteries. His hat had arrived at such a pass, that it would have been hard to determine whether it was originally white or black. But he wore a moustache-a shaggy moustache too nothing in the meak and merciful way, but quite in the fierce and scornful style, the regular sort of thing--and he wore, besides, a very great quantity of unbrushed hair. He was very dirty and very jaunty; very bold and very mean; very swaggering and very slinking very much like a man who might have been something better, and unspeakably like a man who deserved to be something worse." n. n Here is another sample of MR. TUGG'S PHILOSOPHY. "'Oh, Chiv, Chiv!' added Mr. Tugg, surveying his adopted brother with an air of profound contemplation after dismissing this piece of pantomime. You are, upon my life, a strange instance of the little frailties that beset a mighty mind. If there had never been a telescope in the world, I should have been quite certain, from my observation of you, Chiv, that there were spots on the sun! I wish I may die, if this isn't the queerest state of existence that we find ourselves forced into, without knowing why or where- fore, Mr. Pecksniff! Well, never mind. Moralise as we will, the world goes on. As Hamlet says, Hercules may lay about him with his club in every possible direction, but he can't prevent the cats from making a most intolerable row on the roofs of the houses, or the dogs from being shot in the hot weather if they run about the streets unmuzzled. Life's a riddle a most infernally hard riddle to guess, Mr. Pecksniff. My own opinion is, that like that celebrated conundrum, Why's a man in jail like a man out of jail V there's no answer to it. Upon my soul and body, it's the queerest sort of thing altogether-but there's no use in talking about it. Ha! .hal' R CHINESE POLICE.—So summary is the mode in which the object of the police is effected in Canton, that it is no light matter to be once in their hands. The Chinese emphatically express their sense of this unfortunate condition by the popular phrase The meat is on the chopping block." Not unfrequently, in minor cases, a man receives the punishment, and again goes free, the same hour in which he commits the crime. The forms of trial are simple. There is no jury, no pleading. The criminal kneels before the magistrate, who hears the witnesses, and passes sentence J he is then remanded to prison, or sent to the place of execution. Seldom is he acquitted. When witnesses are wanting lie is sometimes tortured until he gives in evidence against himself. There are four jails in Canton, which together contain hell, or literally earth's prison." All capital offenders suffer without the southern gates, near the river. Hundreds die there annually. When brought to the fatal spot, they kneel with their faces towards the Emperor's court, and, bending forward in the attitude of submission and thanksgiving, suddenly expire beneath the bloody sword of the executioner. MUSIC A STIMULANT TO MENTAL EXERTION.—Alfieri, often before he wrote, prepared his mind by listening to music. Almost all my tragedies were sketched in my mind either in the act of hearing music or a few hours after"—a circumstance which has been recorded of many others. Lord Bacon had music often played in the room adjoining his study. Milton listened to his organ for his solemn inspira- tion, and music was even necessary to Warburton. The symphonies which awoke in the poet sublime emotions might have composed the inventive mind of the great critic in the visions of this theoretical mysteries. A celebrated French preacher, Bourdalon or Masilon, was once found playing on a violin, to screw his mind up to the pitch, pre- paratory to his sermon, which, within a short interval, he was to preach before the court. Curran's favourite mode of meditation was with his violin in his hand for hours toge- ther would he forget himself, running voluntaries over the strings, while his imagination in collecting its tones was opening all his faculties for the coming emergency at the bar.—V'Israeli on the Literary Character. LIFE IN DUBLIN LONG AGO.-Life in Dublin, at the time I write of, was about as gay a thing as a man can well fancy. Less debarred than in other countries from partaking of the lighter enjoyments of life, the members of the learned professions mixed much in society bringing with them stores of anecdote and information unattainable from other sources, they made what elsewhere would have proved the routine of intercourse, a season of intellectual enjoyment. Thus, the politician, the churchman, the barrister, and the military man, shaken as they were together in close intimacy, lost individually many of the prejudices of their caste, and learned to converse with a wider and more extended know- ledge of the world. While this was so, another element, peculiarly characteristic of the country, had its share in modelling social life that innate tendency to drollery, that bent to laugh with every one and at everything, so eminently Irish, was now in the ascendant. From the Viceroy down- wards, the island was on the broad grin. Every day fur- nished its share, its quota of merriment. Epigrams, good stories, repartees, and practical jokes, rained in showers over the land. A privy council was a conversazione of laughing bishops and droll chief justices. Every trial at the bar, every dinner at the court, every drawing-room, afforded a thme for some ready-witted absurdity; and all the graver business of life was carried on amid this current of unceasing fun and untiring laughter, just as we see the serious catastrophe of a modern opera assisted by the crash of an orchestral accom- paniment. —Jack Hinton.
ittfcrrllattrattff* b. DEAN FOREST RAILWAY The shareholders of the Glocester and Berkley Canal Company have consented to support th^ Dean Forest Railway in the line of road already chalked out. Although it is not for a. moment disguised that in some points it may, when completed, interfere with the traffic of the canal, yet the advantages which in other respects it will yield to their revenue, in dues on coal and minerals exported, will amply compensate for the infringe- ment which it is considered will possibly occur in the carriage of goods. The shareholders are sensible that when the Bristol and Gloucester line comes in full action, the revenue derived by the carriage of coal to Stroud will be cut off, and therefore that the only means to create an equivalent would be the bringing of the article from the Forest of Dean to Glocester at a price to enable its delivery at Stroud cheaper than could be done by the Bristol and Glocester Company. The quality of the Forest coal, it is contended, will give it a decided preference in the market.—Times—City Article. On Thursday last the Hon. F. Maule was inaugurated Lord Rector of Glasgow. The address is characterised by the Scottish Guardian, as remarkable for its unpretending good sense and excellent feeling." In the course of it he made use of the following excellent remarks:—" Lay up those treasures of knowledge, which every one who has ex- perience of after life will inform you, that he who has done so has always found a ready resource in time of difficulty; and that he who has failed to do so, has never failed to regret the opportunities he has lost. But, my young friends, in pursuing your studies, there is one study which, permit me to tell you, is the first and foremost of all. Thank God, in this protestant country we have had placed in our hands freely to use, as freely as it was given to men, the sacred and holy Scriptures. 0 let me entreat you, so long as the heart is soft, and takes easily the impressions that are made upon it, to hasten to engrave upon that heart the sacred truths of the Scriptures; for believe me that in them, when you come into the world, you will find your best supporters in the time of doubt-your best companion in the hour of prosperity- your surest comfort should the evil time of adversity overtake you, bnt which I trust you will be all spared from encoun- tering. (Great applause.) INSANITY AS A PLEA FOR CRIMINALS.—The Times has opportunely republished Lord Mansfield's remarks on in- sanity as a plea for criminals, in the case of Bellingham, who shot Mr. Perceval. The following is the material pas- Ilage If a man was deprived of all powers of reasoning, so as not to be able to distinguish whether it was right or wrong to commit the most wicked or the most innocent transaction, he could hot certainly commit an act against the law, Such a man, so destitute of all power of judgment, could have no intention at all. In order to support this defence, however, it ought to be proved by the most distinct and unquestionable evidence that the criminal was incapable of judging between right and wrong. It must, in fact, be proved beyond all doubt, that at the time he committed the atrocious act with which he stood charged, he did not con- sider murder was a crime against the laws of God, and Nature. There was no other proof of insanity which could excuse murder or any other cringe." THE MANCHESTER FREE-TRADE HALL This vast building is now nearly covered in; and, when completed, the ceiling is to be plastered and whitewashed, which will greatly add to the dryness and comfort of the hall. The committee have fixed the prices of tickets to the grand banquet. We understand that as the banquet is to extend over several days, the council have resolved on entertaining 4,000 a day. For that purpose they have built this prodigi- ous hall, forty-five yards by thirty-five in the interior. Rows of cast-iron pillars support the roof; and that there may be accommodation for the enormous quantity of stores and atteudants, three Adjoining streets are to be roofed in as store-rooms and lobbies. For waiters, 150 men are being drilled for the occasion. In the Potteries, 10,000 plates and 3,000 other dishes are being made for the dinner and dessert. Sheffield is preparing for the same 12,000 forks and knives, and 800 salt and mustard spoons. Lancashire is making the glass,-4,000 tumblers, 4,000 wine glasses, 400 salts, and the mustard pots. On the first day there will be put on 400 tables 200 dishes of tongues, 200 dishes of ham, 200 dishes of veal pies, 20Q dishes of sandwiches, 200 dishes of sausages, 4,000 small loaves, 4,000 cabin biscuits, 200 canisters of wine biscuits (31b. each canister), 200 dishes of sponge and seed cakes, 4,000 pies, 2,400 Bath buns, 200 dishes of almonds and raisins, 400 of grapes, 2,400 oranges, 2,400 apples, 200 dishes of nuts, and wine as it may be ordered by the guests. The tickets of admission are to be 7s. 6d. for gentlemen, and 5s. for ladies. On the second day all the provisions will be increased by one-half. It is not yet ascertained what the arrangements are to be for the third and fourth days but the prices of admission are cal- culated so as to pay all expenses, and to leave an overplus for the league fund .-Manchester Guardian. LINE OF STEAMERS FROM. BRISTOL TO QUEBEc.-In the accounts received by the Cambridge packet-ship from New York, it is mentioned, though the authority does not appear, that there is to be a new line of steamers from Bristol to Quebec, to be started by the Great Western Company, as soon as the mammouth iron-steamer, Great Britain, is ready for the voyages to New York. The steamer Great Western will, it is said, be upon the Quebec line. Sir R. Peel, in the House of Commons on Thursday se nnight, was dressed in deep mourning, in respect to the memory of the late unfortunate Mr. Drummond. THE RECHABITE SOCIETY.-This institution is composed of persons who abstain from all intoxicating liquors, except as medicine, or in a religious ordinance and who pledge themselves neither to give nor offer them to others, except in the cases specified. The first violation of this pledge is visited with the penalty of 5s., the second 10s., the third 1:1, and the fourth expulsion. A fund is raised for provision in the event of sickness or death. The members contribute periodically according to age, in accordance with the expe- rience of the Highland Society of Scotland. The members are 80 in number. By the calculations they ought to have experienced last year 38-526 weeks of sickness, while they only had 28 weeks; no deaths, while by the calculations they are dr. to .6835; which, at JE5 for a funeral, is equal to 13. 8s. 4d. The funeral allowances vary from L2. to £10, as the member chooses to pay for, according to the tables. Notwithstanding the severe depression of trade last year 24 new members were admitted, besides adding to the capital stock 954., after paying all the aliment and other expenses. The market for English securities was not much influenced by the speech from the Throne. Its general tendency is, however, viewed as satisfactory, and as allaying fears which might have arisen in the breasts of some individuals relative to the present position of our Government with France on the all-importaut question of peace. Mr. West, the Queen's State coachman died in town last week. I
BREEDING OF CATTLE. In attempting to improve the breeds of the different varie- ties of the several families of the brute creation, the mere crossing of the females with superior or differently formed males will never in itself sufficiently improve their offspring so as to become permanent or lasting. A man, or a society of men, setting about so important a business as that of im- proving their stock, too frequently begin at the wrong end of their work. They are, generally speaking, men of capital, who go about the country at considerable expense in seeking 41 new blood," instead of stopping at home, in the first in- stance, and endeavouring to improve the nature of the produce of the lands they cultivate if they did, the improve- ment of the breed" wonld, with a small portion of new blood, inevitably follow. As the matter has been tried on exposed situations, of great altitude, the proprietors soon find that their stock is inferior to what they expected, and when the show day comes they cannot compete, but the next year or two they have recourse to foreign agents such as oil cake, &c. But surely lie who does this ought not to be de- signated 44 a farmer and grazier." If we take the sheep, for instance, which is one of the most useful of quadrupeds, and examine it in the highlands and in the lowlands, and at all the intermediate stations of altitude, we shall find a very similar animal at the same altitude, though at 100 or 5UO miles apart, providing that the geological formation of the respective stations is about the same, and that there has been no superior cultivation of the products of the land at one station than another. For on those similar stations of alti- tude and geological formations we find the same kinds of grasses and other plants which the sheep feed on, the whole of which possess similar feeding properties and as the at- mosphere is of about the same specific gravity, it would appear that the breed" of sheep and other animals, enters at the mouth and nostrils rather than by the blood vessels. Hence it must be evident that the proper way to set about so important a business as the one in question is to shelter the land with good fences and plantations, drain and pulver- ize the ground, and clear it of those plants, whether grass or other plants, which the sheep will not eat, and sow those kinds of pasture, whether grass or otherwise, which they are fond of. These preliminaries being fully established, then, we should have gained one main point towards the improve- ment of the breed of sheep or other animals which we might make choice of for our experiment, and with a small portion of new blood added to our old stock, our task would be com- pleted to the fullest extent, on the siven altitude or locality, fiitf, by the present fashion of feeding, or rather cramming with foreign compounds, there is nothing gained but the prize by the fortunate individual whose circumstances have enabled him to stuff his animals to an unnatural condition; but which, if slaughtered, neither the judges nor any of the lords and ladies who witnessed the show would taste the least particle of, if ever so daintily cooked, for in truth it is only fit for the vultures of mankind to eat. This kind of competition shuts out those very men who ought to be brought forward, I mean those farmers who absolutely attend the daily toil of the plough for they are better calculated to double the produce of the land than the mounted farmers are. But those men require telling what errors they are committing, and how they ought to proceed in future, in very plain language for the representation of manures under the crack-jaw title of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, muriatic acid, potassa, and other alkalies, with an almost interminable list of neutral salts, sounds so like Algebra to them that they are glad to fall back on their former practices, be they ever so rusticated.
TRIAL OF THE ASSASSIN M'NAUGHTEN. The assassin was last week placed at the bar of the Central Criminal Court, held before Lord Abinger and Mr. Justice Maule, charged with the murder of Mr. Drum- mond. Mr. Clarkson, his Counsel, asked whether their Lordships thought he ought to be called on to plead. Lord Abinger said, if the application was in consequence of the state of mind of the prisoner, a jury should be empanneled to ascertain that point. Mr. Clarkson would not press the question to that extent. The indictment was then read, after which Mr. Straight, Deputy Clerk of Arraigns, said- How say you, prisoner, are you Guilty of the charge or not Guilty! The prisoner, who kept his eyes steadily fixed towards the Bench, made no reply. Mr. Straight again asked him whether he was Guilty or not Guilty ? Mr. Cope, the Governor of the prison, here asked the prisoner whether he had heard the question. Mr. Straight: Prisoner, you must answer the question, whether you are Guilty or not ? The prisoner, after again hesitating for some time, said, I was driven to desperation." Lord Abinger: Will you answer the question ? You must say either guilty or Not Guilty. Prisoner, after some pause, I am Guilty of firing." Lord Abinger: By that do you mean to say you are not guilty of the remainder of the charge, that is, of intending to murder Mr. Drummond' Prisoner: Yes. Lord Abinger That certainly amounts to a plea of44 Not Guilty;" therefore such a plea must be recorded. Mr. Clarkson then applied for a postponement of the trial, and read a long affidavit by Mr. Humphries, solicitor for the prisoner, setting forth that he expected to prove by witnesses then in Scotland and France, that the prisoner was insane; also that a Bank receipt for E750 had been withheld from him, which was wantefl to meet the expenses of his defence. The trial was postponed, with the understanding that the prisoner would be supplied with funds for his defence. The receipt the Attorney- General objected to give up, saying it might become an im- portant document in evidence. From the plea which he made when arraigned before Lord Abinger, and which, but for the interposition of his Lordship, amounted to a plea of guilty it was expected that he would, when removed, make some further admission but the moment he re-entered the cell his former apparent sullenness and apathy were again manifested not even an alteration of the countenance was visible, but he proceeded to take up a book which he had previously been reading, and commenced at the part he had left off. The friends of M'Naughten are extremely sanguine that the evidence which will be adduced to the insanity will be most complete, and in this opinion, we understand, his legal adviser coincides. An uninterrupted state of insanity for some years past will, it is said, be proved, while, on the other side, Sergeant Stevens, of the A division, who was sent to Glasgow, obtained most important information to the contrary and to establish this point, the Treasury caused the names of Sergeant Jones, of the 10th Hussars, and Ser- geant Beale, of the Enniskillen Dragoons, to be put on the back of the bill which was sent before the grand jury, to show that when they endeavoured to enlist M'Nanghten, his answers and conversation were that of a sane and rational person. The persons who are connected with Newgate de- scribe the prisoner to be one of the quietest and mildest prisoners who have for a length of time been confined within the walls.. ■, ,T j >'f .j.i if sv/o f j
THE LANARKSHIRE COLLIERS.—The strike is now nearly general over the county. In our paper of last week we noticed that a number of the colliers above Hamilton had been ejected from their houses since then we learn that 400 more, with their wives and families, were turned out on Friday week, in the neighbourhood of Holy town. A cor- respondent in that neighbourhood says—" It is truly lamentable to see the havoc that is made by the ejectments. All, however, are put up as yet in Holytown and the sur- rounding neighbourhood, and the men seem as determined as ever." To this we have only to add, that notwithstanding the great distress the colliers have but recently experienced, the district is perfectly peaceable. The origin of this strike, we are imformed, did not arise so much from the prospects of the ironmasters being worse than they have been for some time back, but from one or two of the masters having been able to effect a reduction of about twelve per cent, in the rate of wages, and hence an advantage was obtained by them over those who were paying the full rate. Under these circumstances, the full paymasters had only two ways --of acting, in order that they might not be undersold in the market. This was, either that the men should get the wages at the works that were paying the low rate raised to the regular standard, or, if this could not be accomplished, the works paying the full rate would require, as a matter of necessity, to reduce the wages to the low rate; and out of this has arisen the present strike.-Glasgow Chronicle. HUMANITY IN THE ARMY.—A private-of the 52d stationed here, was tried by a court-martial for being drunk on guard, and sentenced to 100 lashes. The entire garrison was ordered on parade to witness the punishment, and the delinquent was stripped and tied up to the triangle to re- ceive his punishment. Sir Guy Campbell, the Lieutenant- General in command of this district, rode into the lines and ordered the drummer, who had his arm raised to begin the work, to cease, and then proceeded to explain to the man the enormity of the crime of which he had been found guilty, and for which he would, if in an enemy's country, have for- feited his life; and, after a pathetic appeal to his feelings as a man and a soldier, and advising him to give up intoxica- ting liquors, concluded by saying he would forgive him if he promised in future to conduct himsef properly and be a good soldier. This the poor fellow solemnly promised to do, and he was immediately released and sent to his duty. Too much praise cannot be given to Sir Guy for the humanity he dis- played, and we hope the disposition he evinces to treat the men under his command with kindness will not be abused. Athlone Sentitwl. THE MILITIA.-We have reason to believe that the inten- tion in calling out the militia this year is to supersede, by the due equipment and discipline of that constitutional force, the county constabulary. The staff of each regiment will be stationed at Lancaster, Liverpool, and Preston, and the three regiments will combine and assemble for a short period of permanent duty some time in May. The officers of each regiment are determined to do the thing with spirit, and have made most liberal arrangements for music, &c., and other requisites to military parade and grandeur.- Liverpo( I Standard. BLASPHEMOUS PUBLICATIONS.At Bow-street Police- office, on Friday, Thomas Patterson was brought up under four warrants, issued some time back on the prosecution of Government, charging him with exposing certain blas- phemous publications in Holywell-street. Patterson was partly defended by his counsel, Mr. Thomas, who took some technical objections that were overruled and he partly de- fended himself, reading professedly for that purpose some papers which are said to have been outrageously blasphe- mous, and they were eventually taken from him. In three of the cases he was fined 40s.; and, refusing to pay the fines, was committed to prison for one month.
HOUSE OF LORDS. THURSDAY. The Earl of Powis moved, and Lord EGLINTOUN seconded, the address to the Hous- upon the subject of Her Majesty's speech. The addresses of their Lordships were little more than a running commentary upon the topics adverted to in the Royal speech, bestowing, however, a more emphatic con- gratulation upon the subject of the Washington treaty, the negotiations which the Porte for the maintenance of the privileges of the Christians in Syria, and the conclusion of a great and important commercial treaty with Russia, from which considerable advantages might reasonably be expected to accrue to both countries. The Marquis of LANSDOWNK expressed his approbation of the judicious manner in which the Royal speech had been framed, with the view of preventing the expression of any dillerence of opinion as to the terms of the address, yet hoped this general approbation would not be construed into a con- currence in.all the points adverted to or passed over in the speech from the Throne. With regard to the Corn Laws especially, no mention of which had been made in that speech, be believed that no period bad ever occurred in which greater embarrassment had been ticcasioned to the trade and internal resources of the country, than since the present Corn Laws bad come into operation. In adverting to our Eastern suc- j cesses, he took occasion to notice the prevailing impression '0'1 that some unwillingness had been manifested on the part of Lord Kllenbqrough to re-enter Afghanistan, and to the pro- clamations in which the Governor-General bad imitated the Schahs and Sultans to whom the country be now ruled over had formerly been subject. He complained of the paragraph in the Royal Speech by which the successful issue of the China wfir was attributed to the" liberality of Parliament," and contended that the increased means of conducting the war had been suggested by Lord Auckland, for whom also be claimed the honour of having pointed out the very plan of operations by which the expedition had at length succeeded. The Duke of WELLINGTON, in reply, vindicated the justice of the Chinese war, and contrasting the force which had been employed by the late and by the present Government, claimed for the latter all the credit of haring at last conducted it to a successful termination. He complained, that after the for- bearance in the Royal speech of any allusion to our disasters in Afghanistan, the noble Marquis should have intruded such a topic upon that night's discussion and, after referring to his own experience in India, and of military difficulties, de- clared that lie was ready "to justify every order or movement, either one way or the other, the Governor-General had given since he took upon him the administration of tb. affairs of India." Lord BROUGHAM, too, heartily concurred in the sentiment of universal exultation at the settlement of the differences of America, in comparison with the importance of which he was utterly indifferent to the sacrifice of a few miles of territory, or even of the navigation of the St. John's River—" Welcome,' said the noble Lord. "Take it all! Give it up." He then proceeded more in detail to defend the concessions which Lord Ashburton had made for the sake of peace, and con- trasted most eloquently the blessings of such a policy with the horrors which our invasion of Afghanistan had entailed, not only upon the inhabitants of that country, but upon our un- fortunate troops. He rejoiced at the general maintenance of peace with foreign powers, but more especially fwith France. The noble lord then proceeded to vindicate the French Gov- ernment and its Consul, M. Lesseps, from any concern in, or connivance with, the revolt of Barcelona; and, after enlarging upon the inestimable benefits of peace with France, and the evils which would flow from any interruption of our present amicable relations, concluded with a warm panegyric upon its Government and its people. Lord AUCKLAND shared with Lord BROUCHAM the horror with which all war was to be contemplated, and had only entered upon that in Afghanistan, because, after long and painful hesitation, he felt convinced that it was essential to the very safety of England. He had at last determined to meet the threatening danger in advance, and the result was to dispel a cause of apprehension then imminent, and now no longer formidable because thus decisively met. lie defended the part he had taken in the direction of the several expedi- tions on the coast of China, and, without detracting from the vigour and ability with which the plans by which success was ultimately attained were carried out, he firmly believed that the same plans, and nearly the same amount of force, would have been employed had there been no change of Government at all. The Marquis of CLANRICABDE declined to enter upon the Eastern questions until the papers were before the House. He expressed some dissatisfaction with the treaty concluded by Lord Ashburton, ahd regretted that the speech held out no prospect of any material changes in revenue or commerce. Lord MINTO defended the conduct of his late colleagues as to their naval operatious on the coast of China, and was fol- lowed by Lord Ashburton, who, while deprecating a debate on the late treaty when there were so many other subjects before the House, explained that a settlement of the right of search had formed no part of his mission. After a few words from Lord MINTO on this much-disputed point, Lord STANHOPE gave notice of a motion for Thursday next, embodying an amendment which he had intended to have proposed on the Address. The Address was then agreed to, and their Lordships shortly afterwards adjourned.
HOUSE OF COMMONS. THURSDAY. Lord COUIITENAY rose to move an address embodying the topics of the speech. He declared his peculiar satisfactiqn at the adjustment of the differences with America, by reason of her common origin, language, and laws, and the influence which must be produced on the whole civilized world by the state of the relations between two countries circumstanced like England and the United States. Ile, congi-atulated his. hearers on the successes in Affghanistan, doing justice to the exploits of military valour, and to the no less striking examples of. female fortitude, as exhibited in the East. He rejoiced in the fortune which had attended our efforts in China, and hailed in their results a hope of extended markets for our domestic produce., The motion was seconded by W P. MILKS. Mr. C. WOOD desired to reserve nis judgment upon most of the points of the speech nntil the House should be in posses- sion of further information. Generally speaking, be believed the speech would be satisfactory; but he lamented that on the subject of domestic distress it held out only sympathy, and no practical relief. In Lancashire and in Scotland, thfe great seats of our trade, the suffering was almost unabated. The late Ministers, to cure these evils, had attempted measures for the extension of trade. A similar disposition had in the last session been evinced by the present Alinistry; but there was no indication of that disposition in the pQtsent speech. None of the reductions made last year had cheapened any material article of consumption. Wheat, had indeed, been at a low price, but not, he believed, by reason of the change in the corn laws. Never was any alarm more groundless than that which had last year arisen among the agriculturists. After a pause of about one minute, Sir ROBERT PEEL rose. He trusted by the tone of the House, that the address to be laid before ller Majesty would, be unanimous. On the subject of the American treaty he should be prepared to show, that, if it had not obtained for us all which we were strictly entitled to expect, it was, on the whole, an eligible adjustment, giving us more than had been awarded by the arbitration of the King of the Netherlands, and securing to us all that was really important in our States, and his earnest desire to preserve a good understanding with, their people, made it painful to him to say that the recent message of the President did not give an accurate representation of what had passed in the negotiations. We had not claimed the right of search, which was a belligerent right! what we had claimed was only the right of visitation—the right to visit a vessel bearing the American flag for the purpose of ascertaining whether she be really American; which if on that visit she should turn out to be, she must be liberated, even though she should clearly appear at all points a slaver. On the subject of finance, be admitted that there was a great deficiency. He bad stated last year that, in addition to the deficiency which he had found on coming into office, he proposed to cause a further deficiency still. He had accordingly remitted duties on 700 articles; reductions had all taken effect; but the income-tax imposed to meet them had not yet come into pro- ductiveness. Undoubtdly there had been a great falling off in the excise, mainly on the article of malt; bnt that had arisen in a great degree from the very unfavourable harvest of 1841. This was not a fit occasion for entering at large upon financial statements; but he did now discern some favourable changes on which he could not forbear from founding good hopes, It was complained that the speech announced no new measure with respect to corn. He had no such great measures of change to propose as gentlemen seemed to expect. Whenever he should make a change, it would be a change ac- cordant with the principles he had propounded but he must always remember that in this country the general rule bad been protection. He believed the reduction which had already taken place in the price of the necessaries of life had actually verified his prediction that the income tax would be campensated by the general cheapness of living. Lord JOHS KUSSELL, adverted to some Indian topics npon which he deemed it requisite that further information should be previously furnished—one, the vindictive excesses said to have been committed by our troops; the other, the share of Lord Kllenborough in issuing the directions which led to our successes. There were a couple of proclamations too remark- able to be passed over. One of them contained such a inisre- presentatian of a preceding Governor's policy as was seldom uttered even in the heat of party debate; and it breathed, with respect to Affghanistan itself, a spirit rather of revenge than of calm and statesmanlike policy. Coming now to do- mestic affairs, he would declare that the experience of the past year had confirmed him in his objection to the sliding scale, and in his conviction that a fixed duty was the thing required. Under the present scale, the foreign wheat was poured in just as the home harvest was becoming available- the garden was watered at tbe moment it was beginino- to rain. He had, however, beard nothing to-night which convinced him that Sir R. Peel would not yet make much further altera- tion in the Corn Laws. But on such a question to withhold alterations which were really intended was vastly inconvenient a and injurious, and left evrything unsettled both for the grower and for the labourer- The agricultural members were now placed by the Government in a very awkward situation; the arguments on which they were pnt to defend the taritl' were arguments which forced them to condemn the Corn Law, and vice versa. He was no subscriber to tho opinions of the Anti- Corn Law League; be wished the Ministers would propound something which should put an end to agitation. He was £ lnd to hear that the prospects of the revenue were more favourable than they had been 'tiupposed but he must say that the opinion he had always expressed, by his vote and otherwise, against the income-tax had been confirmed by the' experience of what had recently happened. Sir C. NAPIER condemned Lord Ashburton's treaty. Mr. WALLACE was sure the speech would be received with dissatisfaction in every quarter of the kingdom. Lord STANLEY, after bestowing a few words on Mr. Wal- lace, addressed himself to the speech of Lord John Russell, whom he blamed for a premature introduction of the questions connected with Affghanistan. He would, however, now de- clare, that it was the intention of Ministers, on the approach- ing motion for a Tote of thanks, to claim for Lord Kllenborough a share in the honour of our Indian successes. On the results of the Chinese war, Lord PALMERSTON ex- pressed himself glad to concur in the congratulations of the speech. As he and his friends had been responsible for beginning that war, they could not but rejoice in its success- ful conclusion and it was but fair to admit that the pre- sent Ministers had conducted it with as much earnestness and vigour as if they had themselves commenced it. As to India, he wished to know whether the thanks proposed were to include Lord Ellenborough for he was satisfied that Lord Ellenborough had not been the author of the instruc- tions by which the success had been directed and as to his proclamations, they had really become a laughing-stock. Instead of thanking such a Governor, the Cabinet should have recalled him. After a few words about Syria, whose present affairs he treated as of minor importance, he ad- verted to the hardships of the income-tax upon persons of small means. Perhaps they were unavoidable; and he concluded by asking whether the number of cruisers on the coast of Africa was about to be reduced, and whether any change had been made in their instructions 1 Sir R. PEEL answered both questions substantially in the negative and took that opportunity of expressing his regret that the attack on Lord Ellenborough had not been made earlier in the debate. Sir R. INGLIS would not condemn the general policy of Lord Ellenborough, but he must express his deep disappro- bation of that passage in one of the proclamations in which a Christian Governor, on a subject connected with religion, employed language such as no Mahometan ruler would have suffered to use. Mr. YILLIERS complained that the speech disregarded the sufferings of the people at home. It would not do to say there were no remedies. Remedies there were, and which the people expected and desired. They would not be satisfied with what had passed this evening. Sir R. Peel had uttered nothing which looked like an intention to repeal the Corn Laws, and the people were now, therefore, in a hopeless state. Their excitement was general. Lord HOWICK thought it the duty of the House, passing by all minor topics, to apply itself, to the subject of the national distress. The very length of its continuance proved that there must be some cause for it in the organization of society. Mr. HUME had disapproved the selection of Lord Ash- burton but had changed opinion when he saw how much temper and judgment that noble Lord had evinced in the conduct of the treaty. He complained of the present weight of taxation, observing that the low rate of profits and wages made it more difficult to pay a small impost now, than it had been to pay a much larger one in other days. Mr. PERItkXD said no good would come till machinery was taxed. The Opposition might cheer, and call upon the right hon. Baronet to carry out their principles; he had been seduced by their smiles last year; and how had his measures answered 1 Mr. Ferrand then challenged any of the members of the Anti-Corn Law League to meet him and argue their, question openly in any town of Lancashire or Yorkshire. Mr. M. GIBSON said, that the reason why the League audiences were admitted by tickets was, that paid parties had been sent in to disturb their conferences. If the mem- bers of the League had not subscribed to the Queen's letter, they had assisted poverty and distress in their own localities. Dr. BOWRING read some returns, Bhowing distress in Bolton. Mr. M. PHILLIPS assured the House that those who thought prosperity was returning deceived themselves. A momentary hope had been excited by the prospect of the Chinese markets but it had already ceased. The address was then carried without a disseiisient voice. FRIDAY. Lord COURTNEY having brought up the report of the Committee of the House of Commons on the Address, Mr. WALTER rose. He feared that one part of what he had to say would be unsatisfactory to those who sat near him, and the other part to those who sat opposite to him. After expressing his approbation of those topics of the Ad- dress which refer to our foreign relations, and commending the Government for the manner in which the late disturb- ances had been suppressed, he adverted to the Corn Law, and declared his opinion to be still, as it always had been, in favour of a fixed duty, as against a sliding scale. The greatest merit of the present law was, that it approached to the fixed duty. He hoped the country might look for some further change in the next session. The present law had this advantage—that instead of placing corn in the same category with other articles of importation, as a fixed duty would do, it furnished, by its variable nature, a handte to the allegation that Parliament was legislating for a class. His experience as the representative of an agricultural county, and his experience as the representative of a great manufacturing town, led him alike to the result he now maintained. With respect to the question between the la- bourers and their employers, he differed alike from the rural advocates of the workhouse, and from the Dissenting minis- ters of Manchester, who, with hearts bleeding for the operatives, upheld the same system. He had a great ob- jection to all leagues, whether of manufacturers or of agriculturists. But he equally deprecated leagues of a secret character, such as he conceived to be that which combined to carry out the New Poor Law, and of whose real, though concealed, motivei he would now give the House an unequivocal proof. Mr. WARD thanked Mr. Walter for the declaration which he had just made on the subject of the Corn Laws, and which, coming from that hon. member, was of great im- portance to the country. The existing Corn Laws could not stand; the agriculturists were becoming sensible to the necessity of changing it; and in the manufacturing districts the feeling against it was daily increasing. He had expected that Sir R. Peel would have advanced in the line for which he had last session declared his preference, and not have taken his stand upon the imperfect changes he had already made but it should seem that the minister was controlled by those who sat behind him. Mr. VILLIERS then asked whether Sir R. Peel had meant, in his speech of the preceding night, to declare himself against all change in the Corn Laws ? Sir R. PEEL said, that though in general he thought it an objectionable practice to answer questions respecting the future policy of Government, yet on a subject of so much importance as this he would not decline to state, that he did not contemplate any change in the general tenor of the ex- isting Corn Laws. He did not agree that it had failed nor had there been sufficient experience of its operation to justify the inferences of its opponents. When he heard Mr. Ward's observation about the effect of a fixed duty, he was at a loss to conceive how such a duty could be consented to by that hon. member, who had admitted that for £ 500 0C0 sterling acquired to the revenue from the two millions of quarters which might be usually imported, the country would pay a tax of two millions sterling on the twenty millions of quarters grown at home. He would resist any alteration in the existing law. He saw no other system which he thought likely to work so well; nor had he ever heard of any proposal which would give absolute security to the agriculturists against all changes, except, indeed, a total abolition of duty, which, to be sure, would protect them against further reduction, because it would leave nothing to be reduced. In what he now said, however, he desired to be understood as speaking only his present conviction, and not as pledging himself to anything so irrational as the unqualified maintenance, under all rossible circumstances, of any regulation not involving considerations of principle. The report of the address was then agreed to.
RADICAL FALSEHOOD.—A speech was delivered by Dr. Marsham, at the late Buckinghamshire Conservative Fes- tival. The Morning Chronicle, the chief organ of the Leaguers, wincing under the chastisement administered by the Dr. to Anti-Corn-Law agitators, thus notices his address. Dr. Marsham's name," it says, is not, perhaps, well- known to the public but it ought to be. Dr. Marsham is one of the greatest pluralists of the Church. We forget how many ecclesiastical sinecures he enjoys; but the sum which he pockets from the revenues of the Church amounts to somewhat about 95,000. a-year." Previously to this, the League writer had made great pretensions to local know- ledge of Buckinghamshire and of the speakers at the dinner. The reader will, therefore, be better able to estimate his assertions when we state, that Dr. Marsham, of Merton, is A LAYMAN, "and, of course, is neither pluralist, sinecurist, nor receiver of one penny of ecclesiastical income." The lie is set afloat, however, and no doubt the liberal papers will abound with philippics against this clerical" assailant of the League, and the clergy generally! Thus the game is kept up. Dr. Lardner is starving at Philadelphia; and Mrs. Heavisides, of Brighton, his chire amie, has eloped from him.-Cork Constitution. CONVICTION UNDER THE INCOME TAX.—A case of great interest has been decided at the Wincanton Sessions, before the Right Hon. Henry Woodhouse, Sir A. Hood, and a full bench of magistrates. Mr. Green, the surveyor of taxes, summoned Mr. W. Bigger, a retired yeoman, against whom he pressed for penalties under the 5th and 6th of Victoria, cap. 35, sec. 166, for having assisted Mr. E. Feltham, in making a false return of his property. It appeared that Mr. Feltham held two mills, for which he paid 821. a year, and for which he was assessed at 60 £ while his return made it appear that they were worth only 40/. This return was proved to have been made by Mr. Bigger, who is a relation of Mr. Feltham, without the latter's knowledge. Mr. Jel- land, who attended for the accused, pleaded ignorance. Mr. Green said that he would not press for the full penalty (501. and treble duty), but would be content with 20/. The bench accordingly adjudged the defendant to pay 20/ with treble duty. RESPONSIBILITY or INSANE PERSONS.—Some very, sen- slble remarks were made by Mr. Wakley, at an inquest held by him last week on the body of a young woman who had committed suicide. The coroner observed, that he I- thought much mischief was occasioned by coroners' juries habitually returning verdicts of insanity in such cases frequently upon testimony which was in every respect loose and frivolous, and therefore valueless." He then proceeded to put the hypothetical case, that a no greater degree of madness than that which drives people to commit self-de- struction might also urge them to perpetrate murder; but would such criminals be exonerated from all responsibility because they had some time previous to the deed been con- sidered to be under the influence of this insanity! II If such a principle were admitted, society at large would be placed in the worst and most dangerous condition possible. No example could be proposed more dangerous than to hold out to persons a temptation to crime, by promising them an excusatory plea of insanity." Time".
