tJoctvg. J SONG OF THE OLD YEAR. (From the New Monthly Magazine.) Oh I have been running a gallant career On a courser that needeth nor bridle nor goad But he'll soon change his rider, and leave the Old Year Lying low in the dust on Eternity's road. Wide has my track been, and rapid my haste, But whoever takes heed of my journey will find, That in marble-built city and camel-trod waste I have left a f::ir set of bold waymarks behind. I have choked up the earth with the sturdy elm board, I have chequer'd the air with the banners of strife Fresh are the tomb-stones I've scattered abroad, Bright are the young eyes I've opened to life. My race is nigh o'er on Time's iron-gray steed, Yet he'll still gallop on as he gallops with me And you'll see that his name will be flying again Ere you've buried me under the green holly tree. If ye tell of the sadness and evil I've wrought, Yet remember the share of "good works'' I have done, Ye should balance the clouds and the canker I've brought W ith the grapes I have sent to be crush'd in the sun. If I've added gray threads to the worldly-wise heads, I have deepened the chesnut of infancy's curl If I've cherish'd the germ of the shipwrecking worm, I have quickened the growth of the crown-studding pearl If I've lengthened the yew till it brushes the pall, I have bid the sweet shoots of the orange bloom swell; If I've thickened the moss on the ruin's (lank wall, I have strengthened the love-bower tendrils as well. Then speak of me fairly, and give the Old Year A light-hearted parting in kindness and glee, Chant a roundelay over my laurel-decked bier, And bury me under the green holly-tree. Ye have murmured of late at my gloom-laden hours, And looked on my pale wrinkled face with a frown But ye laughed when I spangled your pathway with flowers, And flung the red clover and yellow corn down. Ye shrink from my breathing, and say that I bite- So I do—but forget not how friendly we were When I fann'd your warm cheek in the soft summer night, And just toy'd with the rose in the merry girl's hair. Fill the goblet and drink as my wailing tones sink, Let the wassail-bowl drip and the revel shout rise— But a word in your ear-from the passing Old Year, f is the last time he'll teach ye—" be merry and wise!" Then sing, while I'm sighing my latest farewell, The log-lighted ingle my death pyre shall be Dance, dance, while I'm dying, blend carol and bell, And bury me under the green holly-tree.

All your efforts will be useless, if the cucumbers themselves are not in the right frame.-Coiitic Almanack, 1844. A GOOD ROUND FAMILY.—An old woman, named Susy Haigh, who lived at Stones, in Sowerby, died on the 16th instant, in the 88th year of her age, having lived to see the fifth generation of her family, which numbered, exclusive of herself, 170. She had 9 children, 48 grandchildren, 111 great-grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren.— Halifax Guardian. DESCRIPTION OF A STEA -,r-EN-GINE. --That part of the 'machine which you see moving up and down is the hypo- thesis, the tube which it moves in is termed the dilemma. That wheel is called a category it communicates motion to those other wheels, which are named predicaments, and the whole constitutes a true syllogism. In the mode above in- dicated, logic may be made to answer in default of mechanics -Punch. How TO EVADE THE INCOME-TAX.—Invest all your money in Pennsylvanian bonds.—Punch. STATISTICS OF A BEE-HIVE.-The" masses" of every hive consist of two kind of bees—the workers and the drones. The first are undeveloped females the second are the females. Over these presides the mother of the hive, the queen bee. The number of workers in a strong hive is above 15,000, and of drones about one to ten of these. These proportion, though seldom exact, is never exceeded, or fallen short of. A single family, where swarming is prevented, will sometimes amount, according to Dr. Bevan, to 50,000 or 60,000. In their wild state, if we may credit the quantity of honey said to be found, they must sometimes greatly exceed this ii umber.- Qt&arterly Review. Mr. Joseph Hume has promised to take up the question of the Sugar Duties in the next Session of Parliament. What does Joseph know about sugar 1" asked one merchant of another. 11 Oh, I should say, Mr. Ilume ivotilil know a good deal about it, since he always carries a Hoj/'s- head on his shoulders," was the reply. STRIKING A BALANCE. Curran, when Master of the Rolls in Ireland, was going one day to a levee at the Castle. There was a great press of carriages when, all at once he was startled by the pole of the carriage which followed him crashing through the back of his. He hastily put his head out of the window, crying to his coachman, 11 Stop, stop the pole of the carriage behind is driven into us "Arrah then its all right again, your honour," said Pat, exultingly, for I've just druv my pole into the carriage before." This as a sample of the Irish bull Curran used to cite as perfect.
MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT.—No. 12.
MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT.—No. 12. This number, like its predecessors, abounds in striking incidents and quiet touches of pathos and honour. Poor Tom Pinch is discarded by Pecksniff; and Miss Pecksniff, under the impression that her Pa" is about to bring home a second Ma," leaves Salisbury, and takes up her abode at the boarding-house of Mrs. Todgers. Of the courtship that may be carried on at a card-table we have the following illustration, which we particularly quote for the benetit of modest young gentlemen in delicate situations On the seventh night of cribbage, when Mrs. Todgers, sitting by, proposed that instead of gambling they should play for "love," Mr. Moddle was seen to change colour. On the fourteenth night he kissed Miss Pecksniffs snuffers in the passage, when she went up stairs to bed meaning to have kissed her hand, but missing it. In short, Mr. Moddle began to be impressed with the idea that Miss Pecksniff's mission was to comfort him and Miss Pecksniff began to speculate on the probability of its being her mission to become ultimately Mrs. Moddle. He was a young gentleman (Miss Pecksniff was not a very young lady) with rising prospects, and "almost" enough to live on. Really it looked very well. Besides—besides—he had been regarded as devoted to Merry. Merry had joked about him, and had once spoken of it to her sister as a conquest. He was better looking, better shaped, better spoken, better tempered, better man- nered than Jonas. He was easy to manage, could be made to consult the humours of his betrothed, and could be shown off like a lamb, when Jonas was a bear. There was the rub. In the meantime the cribbage went on, and Mrs. Tod- gers went off; for the youngest gentleman, dropping her society, began to take Miss Pecksniffto the play. He also began, as Mrs. Todgers said, to slip home "in his dinner- times," and to get away from the office at unholy seasons and twice, as he informed Mrs. Todgers himself, he received anonymous letters, enclosing cards from Furniture Ware- houses-clearly the act of that ungentlemanly ruffian Jinkins only he had'nt evidence enough to call him out upon. All of which, so Mrs. Todgers told Miss Pecksniff, spoke as plain English as the shining sun. My dear Miss Pecksniff, you may depend upon it,' said Mrs. Todgers, that he is burning to propose.' 'My goodness me, why don't he then cried Cherry. Men are so much more timid than we think 'em, my dear,' returned Mrs. Todgers, 'They baulk themselves con- tinually. I saw the words on Todger's lips for months and months and months before he said 'em.' Miss Pecksniff submitted that Todgers might not have been a fair specimen. Oh yes he was. 0 bless you, yes my dear. I was very particular in those days I assure you,' said Mrs. Todgers, bridling. 'No, no. You give Mr. Moddle a little encourage- ment, Miss Pecksniff, if you wish him to speak and he'll speak fast enough, depend upon it.' I am sure I don't know what encouragement he would have, Mrs. Todgers,' returned Charity. He walks with me, and plays cards with me, and he comes and sits alone with me.' 1. 1 Quite right,' said Mrs. Todgers, I That's indispensable, my dear.' And he sits very close to me.' Also quite correct,' said Mrs. Todgers. And he looks at me.' To be sure he does,' said Mrs. Todgers. c. And he has his arm upon the back of the chair or sofa, or whatever it is-behind me, you know.' 'I should think so,' said Mrs: Todgers. u, And then he begins to cry Mrs. Todgers admitted that he might do better than that; and might undoubtedly profit by the recollection of the great Lord Nelson's signal at the battle of Trafalgar. Still, she said, he would come round, or, not to mince the matter, would be brought round, if Miss Pecksuiff took up a decided position, and plainly showed him that it must be done." DR. DOWNES, OF BUILTII.—A contemporary in his review or Blackwood's Magazine, for the present month, thus I 'ices an article by this distinguished writer, a gentleman, T are happy to say, who has been an occasional contributor lo this journal:—" But the paper that will command the most attention is one by that eloquent but most eccentric writer, Dr. Downes, of Builth, author of a remarkable book, the Mountain Decameron.' This gentleman, accompanied by one of his sons, made a tour last September in the disturbed districts of South Wales, in order to ascertain from personal observation whether the startling columns of large type which appeared daily in the Thunderer" consisted of penny-a-lining or not. He demolishes 'our own reporter' most unceremoniously; but we think he evidently overstates 10. the ignorance of the Welsh farmers; although we must ad- mit that few men have had better opportunities of forming an estimate of the Welsh character than Dr. Downes. He fully confirms all that has been advanced about the conduct of the Dissenting Ministers, who have been unquestionably the most active promoters of Rebeccaism in South Vi ales and have both in their private capacities, in their pulpits, and in their periodicals in the Welsh language, done their utmost to excite discontent, to put 'grievances' into the heads of the farmers and the peasantry. With regard to the Poor Law, Dr. Downes says, The Law they certainly hate, but from no pity for paupers. The dislike arises from a wide-spread belief that the host of officers attached to it swallow up great part of what they pay for the poor.' I he prevalence of the Welsh language is an evil and we agree with Dr. Downes that it strongly tends to perpetuate the ignorance which is at the root of much of the mischief. This is an evii, however, which it will be found almost im- possible to remove." WINTER ASSIZE.—The winter assize will be partial, both as regards the circuits and the counties. On some circuits there will be none, on others certain counties only, where the prisons are full, are to have a gaol delivery. One judge only will attend each circuit what the bar will do we can only conjecture. As the business will be entirely criminal, we should suppose that only those counsel will attend who are usually employed in the crown court at the sessions. IN-e very much question the policy of sending peripatetic com- missions the second time through the country, for its only tendency was to keep alive the spirit of dissatisfaction, which its avowed object was to quench. We think the manner in which the commission took the evidence also objectionable, for as they came into the country to investigate public grievances, we think the evidence ought to be published in the local papers as it was taken, so that any misrepresenta- tion might meet a prompt contradiction. It is true the Commissioners were courteous and accessible to all but they were the only parties in possession of the of the evidence adduced by the grievance-mongers, and by these means we have no doubt that they became unconscious recipients of much gross misrepresentations. On this a re- port will be made, and that report must of necessity reflect the information they have received in their exploratory voyage through Wales. The report will thus partake of the charac- ter of those malcontents who went before the Commission with this advantage, that the chances of detection, following on the heels of a mis-statement, were few and faint, whilst the fallacy, unless exposed, would be taken for a true state of the case. Thus the public mind will derive erroneous im- pressions of the real state of things in the principality, through the, as we think, defective manner in which the Commission has been worked. The great point, however, is the manner in which the assize will affect the interests of the country and we shall wait with some anxiety the termination of the proceedings, which will have a vast influence, for evil or good, on the state of the country.—Carmarthen Journal. ELOCUTION OF THE IVELSii.-Meetiiigg of all kinds in Wales are well attended; for above all others the Welshman is a gregarious animal. It is to him a solace for all evils if he can stand in the circle at a sale, or groan in chorus at a conventicle, or get wet through (for it invariably rains) in company at a grievance meeting. I should presume it was their frequent attendance at the chapels and exercise at prayer-meetings that give them a facility of speech and powers of elocution which, for their class, is quite extraordinary and to this cause also must doubtless be attributed the re- ligious allusions which abound in their speeches. Anything like hesitation in expressing their ideas I have never heard while having heard repeatedly our best speakers in the pul- pit, at the senate, and the bar, I declare that I have never seen "the orator" so well personified in grace of action and power of expression and effect as in some of the inspired peasants of the principality. The people listen to a speech in English, though from a popular leader, with perfect apathy, but no sooner does a speaker address them in their own beautiful and comprehensive language than they evince profound attention, occasionally expressing their assent by a word corresponding to our hear," and seldom excited to a cheer, but bearing testimony by a general movement of the body, as if they were unable to keep still, and a hasty inter- change of looks with one another, to the genius of the speaker, and the congeniality of his theme with the feelings of his audience.-Morning Herald. According to Murphys's weather almanack for 1844, the coldest day in the year will be the 7th of January, and the hottest will be the 2nd of August. A Mr. Swinburn, of Ardee, has contrived a table, fitted with a peculiar description of vice, which will enable shoe- makers to work with great facility in a standing position. THE WELSH COMMISSION AT BRECON.—The inquiries of the Commissioners were confined chiefly to the accounts of the turnpike trust, and there can be little doubt that their visit here was almost solely with that object (as they could not be ignorant of the quiescent state of this county during all the disturbances), with the probable view of furnishing a complete report of all the turnpike trusts in South Wales on which to found a general consolidating act of Parliament. Some petty local grievances were also detailed to them, such as exist everywhere in some shape or other but, inasmuch as these manifestly have had nothing to do with creating the disturbances which have existed in South Wales, I do not deem it necessary further to refer to them. GOVERNMENT PATRONAGE IN WATEq.Whilst on the subject of the Government doing something for Wales, I may state that a very common complaint among the better educated class here and elsewhere that I have been in in Wales is, that the Government gives none of its patronage to, spends none of its money on, Wales. It is stated, that with the exception of the Holyhead road and Pembroke dock- yard, there have been no grants of public money for any improvements whatever in Wales and the Welsh say, that the first was made for the benefit of Ireland, and for the sake of rapid communication with that country and the second, because there was a good harbour there, and it was to the advantage of the Government. Beyond these, the Welsh people say, that for their advantage and improvement there has been no grant whatever of public money whilst to Ireland and Scotland there have been grants without end. NEW PLAN FOR PROPELLING VESSELS.—It appears by a Madrid paper, that a method has been discovered by an ingenious Spanish mechanician, of propelling vessels by the agency of an endless chain attached to wheels of twenty to thirty feet diameter, according to the depth of the vessel, by which he has demonstrated that the power of one man thus applied is equal to that of six horses in steamers, and that four such wheels would be sufficient to propel a ship of war of 300 or 400 men while the same locomotive-power is applicable to merchantmen of the usual complement of men, without extraordinary hard work. Should Mr. Iza's inven- tion prove practicable, it certainly will have the effect of producing a revolution in navigation. TIIE IRON TraDE. The trade is still retrograding, and bars are sold at f4 2s. 6d, net at Newport and Cardiff, with a dull sale even at that. Things must soon come to a crisis at this rate. -Mining Journal. 0 THE LARGEST WROLGHT-IRON GUN IN THE WORLD.— For the last two weeks, L. B. Ward and Co., have been hammering out at the Hammersley Forge, at the foot of Fifty-ninth-street, North River, U. S., the largest gun, as it is said, that we have any record of. It is fourteen feet long, three feet in diameter at the breach, and weighs 30,003 lbs., or fifteen tons. It is made for Government, and will be placed on board the Princeton steamer, Captain Stockton, now at Philadelphia. This extraordinary gun is hammered out with a hammer weighing 30,000 lbs. The process of heating and hammering such an immense shaft is wonderful. The machinery for placing the gun in the furnace, of putting it on the anvil, of turning, cutting, and hammering, are so complete, that it is moved with a pre- cision and facility truly astonishing. Cast-iron guns of this size are frequently accomplished, but no attempt, we believe, has ever been made to make a gun of this size from wrought- iron. It is calculated that the strength aiul power of this piece, when finished, will carry a ball of one-third greater weight, and one-fourth increased distance than the best cast- iron gun.—American paper.

NEATIl PETTY SESSIONS, 8th December, 1813. — [Presen Frederick Fred ricks, and Howel Gwyn, Esqrs.]—Lewis Lewis, of Cwsngrwach, collier, in the employ of Messrs. Jevons and Co., was brought befor; the bench, charged with having cut and stolen two trees from the wood of William Williams, Esq., of Aberpergwm. From the evidence, it appeared, that the defendant had gone into :11". Williams's wood, and cut the trees, for the purpose of making a roof for a cow-house he was then erecting. Upon the prisoner being accused by h. Williams's woodward of stealing the trees, he said that Mr. Smith, the agent of Messrs. Jevons and Co., had given them to him, whereupon he was taken to Mr. Smith and, on his arrival, said, that he had found them in a brook six weeks or two months back. It, however, appeared, in addition to the identity of the trees, that from the state of the bark and sap, they could not have been cut a week, the defendant was, therefore, convicted in a sum of thirty shillings, including costs: in default of payment, ordered to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour in the House of Correction, at Swansea, for one calendar month. Tile fine was paid. We regret to hear that the loss of Mr. Williams in the above way is very great. Some summonses for non-payment of poor's rate were then disposed of.- Elias Williams and Isaac Jones, both of Ponfcardawe, were charged with stealing a goose from Mr. John Jones, of Ynisderw. The prisoners, in the middle of the previous day (Thursday), it appeared, from the evidence, very cooly went to Mr. Jones's farm, caught a goose, and wrenched its neck off. They took it to the coking ovens of the Primrose Works, Pantardawe, and burnt the legs, wings, and feathers in one oven, while they put the goose in another oven to bake. These proceedings coming to the cars of Mr. Wm. Parsons, the proprietor of the works, he immediately sent for the policeman, and gave the prisoners and the goose into custody. Although the loss of poultry has been, of late, very immense, the greatest difficulty occurs in bringing a case home to the offenders, by reason of the unwillingness of witnesses to come forward and give evidence, which was ex- perienced in the present case; and the prisoners were, therefore, remanded until Wednesday, in order to complete the evidence against them. On being removed, they sent the policeman to inform the magistrates, that if they might be permitted, they would tell all about it, sooner than be locked up; but the magistrates declined hearing them, as it is hoped the case will be clearly proved against them. -Thos. Williams, of Aberavon, collier, was charged with stealing coal, the property of the Governor and Company of Copper Miners in England; but as there was no evidence to prove a theft, on the part of the prisoner, he was discharged. IMPROVEMENT IN THE MANUFACTURE OF IRON. — An extraordinary machine has lately been introduced at the Dundy van Iron Works, for expressing the impurities from the lumps of iron as they are taken from the puddling- furnace, superseding the ordinary process of the forge ham- mer. It cannot be better described than as a Brobdignagian coffee-mill; the external cylindrical case, which may be about four feet in diameter, by twenty inches high, being grooved or fluted internally, in a direction paiallel to the axis. The interior cylinder, which is grooved correspond- ingly, and driven by powerful machinery, is about ten inches smaller in diameter, and placed so far eccentric in the case, as to admit a puddled ball of the usual size, which, after undergoing rather unceremonious treatment, some- thing between hugging, grinding, and devouring, is dis- missed in the form of a cylinder from four to five inches in diameter, ready for the rolling-mill This is an American machine, patented by Mr. Laurence Hill, and erected by Mr. M'Onie, of Glasgow, and is, we are given to under- stand, the only one in use in the kingdom. THE COPTER TRAT)F.Ag-,iin have we to direct atten- tion to the Swansea Ticketing Paper which appears in our present number, showing a sale of 3730 tons, producing £5,),4GG Is. Gd —or £ 14 17s. 4d. per ton. When it is considered that the sales at Swansea during the past three weeks amount to G823 tons, or E102,167 10s. Gd. in value it will, we think, be admitted, that the Government mea- sure, as regards the tariff, has been productive of evil to our home mines—while even the foreign mine adventurer com- plains. Looking at the Ticketing Paper under notice, we find, that of the amount of E55,466 Is. Gd. only £ 4120 HIs. forms the value of the portion of ores produced in Wales and Ireland, thus leaving 1;51,339 2s. Gtl. as the production of foreign mines; and, when we compare this with the returns from our home mines—which, for the past. four weeks, amount to 10,785 tons, or £ G0,979 9s. Gd. -it will be seen the fearful position in which we are placed, and the necessity which is imposed on the mine adventurer to obtain from Government some alteration. True it is, that the standard has advanced but such is alone to be attributed to the circumstance of the impracticability of smelting foreign ores abroad—and, more especially, without the admixture of the poorer ores of Cornwall or Ireland, by which a flux or amalgamation is acquired. We do not deem it necessary further to dwell on the subject—for we present figures these are in themselves sufficient.—Mining Journal. THE PENNY POSTAGE.—The profits upon postage are now so seriously diminished as to be scarcely worthy of consideration as an item in the public accounts and (we can state it upon good authority) it is in the contemplation of Government, therefore, to abandon them as income, and apply them entirely to improvements in the various branches of the Post-office, and to giving increased facilities to the transmission of lot tei-s.-illoriiijig Post. HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT.—It appears that the amount already voted, from the year 1835 to 1842, was of which E38,483 was expended in February last. It is esti- mated, to complete the buildings, that a further sum of £ 508,424 12s. 9d. will be required. In the return it is stated that a further expenditure will be wanted for completing landing-places, for providing furniture, fittings, &c., for the several offices and official residences. RAILWAY SPEED.-Slleh is the good opinion the public entertain of the success of the Harrogate and Knares- borough Railway, that within the short space of ten days after issuing the prospectuses, we understand shares, amount- i ng to two-thirds of the required capital, have been applied for. ARMY PRIZE MONEY—It is stated in a Parliamentary return of last session, that the unclaimed army prize money from 1809 to 1842 was, £ 1,000,435 IGs. Sa. the interest was E21i,23;5 Os. 4d., making together, £ !,275,070 17s. Od. On the credit side there are disbursements, leaving a balance of 1:4,113 17s. loid.
PRINCE ALBERT'S VISIT TO THE…
PRINCE ALBERT'S VISIT TO THE SMITHFIELD CLUB CATTLE SHOW. On Saturday morning, His Royal Highness Prince Albert honoured the cattle show in King-street, Baker-treet, with a visit. His Royal Highness arrived at the Paddington ter- minus of the Great Western railway in a special train at half- past 9 o'clock, where lus carriage was in waiting, and in which, attended by Major-General Weinyss, the superintend- ent of His Royal Highness's farm, and Colonel Bouverie, he immediately proceeded to the cattle show. The Prince was received at the entrance ot the premises in which the oxen, &c., are placed, by Earl Spencer, who with Mr. Hillyard and Mr. Gibbs, conducted him and his attendants round the various divisions and places assigned for the exhibition of the oxen, cows, sheep, and pigs. Excellent arrangements had been made by Mr. Bulnois, the proprietor of the bazaar, to keep off too great a pressure of the public who were admitted, and at the same time give satisfaction to all who were present during the Royal inspec- tion. His Royal Highness appeared highly gratified with the stock, and examined them with the interest of the agri- culturist. After going round the pens in which the animals were placed, Prince Albert went into the yard of the estab- lishment, when the celebrated cart horse, bred by Mr. J. Bayes, of Draughton, in Northamptonshire, and now the pro- perty of Mr. T. Hibbert, of Hillingdon, was brought ont of the stable for his inspection. The horse is 19 hands high and 5 years old. His Royal Highness expressed his admiratiou of the gigantic animal, and examined him with gn'at attention. The next object which engaged the attention of Prince Albert was the machine for making drain tiles, pipes, &c., for which Mr. Etheridge, the patentee, obtained a prize at the last meeting of the Agricultural Society at Derby. This ingenious machine was in operation, and the Prince, who examined the process very minutely, and asked several questions of the patentee, expressad himself much pleased with the results. His Royal Highness left the bazaar at half- past II o'clock, and was loudly cheered as he entered his carriage and drove oil. TiiE RIVAL PRETENDERS.—Solomon says there is safety in a number of counsellors, in which he is quite wrong, but there is safety in a number of pretenders, and Louis Phillippe has to observe that we have in this realm another claimant to the French Crown besides the Duke of Bordeaux in the person of one self-styled the Duke of Normandy, and these two pretendgrs should settle their rival claims before either should inspire any uneasiness in the breast of the King of the French Each has had his followers though of difFerent sorts, the Duke of Bordeaux having been followed by French Carlists, and the Duke of Normandy by English creditors. The Duke of Bordeaux has not been noticed in any way by the Court, the Duke of Normandy has had much of the notice of the Court of Insolvent Debtors. The Duke of Bordeaux has not been received at the Court of St. James's; the Duke of Normandy has been not only received at the Court of Request and the Court of Conscience, but specially and urgently summoned to attend them. The Duke of Normandy has been s'10^ at in proof of his claims, the Duke of Bordeaux has no such evidence to show in support of his pretensions. So far, how much the balance of credit is on the side of the Duke of Normandy But it is not enough to compare the two. Louis Pliilippe has shut up in one of his prisons a third Pretender, who went in the City of Boulogne steamboat to take f ranee, and who did take nothing but Champagne, a province for which he had a peculiar capacity, till he himself was taken in turn. Let Louis Philippe instantly release and send over to England this third Pretender, and then they may fight the triangular combat of Captain Marryat, the Duke of Normandy firing away his pretensions against the Duke of Bordeaux, the Duke of Bordeaux against Prince Napoleon, the Prince Napoleon I against the Duke of Normandy. Defendit numcrus is a good maxim, especially in the case of pretenders. Let the gentlemen first settle it amongst themselves. The alarms of the King of the French may wait till the rivals have adjusted their conflicting claims.—Examiner. '&r'
INDIA AND CHIN"A. !
INDIA AND CHIN"A. The best account which we have obtained of the outbreak of the revolution of Lahore is as follows: Dhyan Singh, once the participator in the vicious propen sities of Runjeet, and subsequently his Prime Minister and factotum, had two brothers, Ghoolab Singh and Soochft Singh. Dhyan had long plotted to escape from the thraldom of Shere Singh, who was in general regarded as an usurppr to the throne. Ajeet Singh, the next relative to Rnnjeet, and who looked upon his own rights as incontestable, resolved to assassinate the King. He therefore put on a dress of chain armour, and under pretence of presenting an English gun, approached Shere Singh, and, while offering the gun with the muzzle instead of the butt towards the unfortunate ltajah, fired off the piece, which was loaded with ball. Shere Singh )a of Itis fritl.).s riisli(,d to Cl!t the fell, and soma of his friends rushed forward to cut down the assassin, but he slew two of the leaders and wounded others, who fled. He then cut oil Shere Singh's head, and had it carried to the place where the King's tion, Pertaub Singh, was. Throwing the heal] on the ground, he exclaimed "That is your father's." The boy Prince cried, Oh, uncle, you will not ititirtior m 7" The assassin shouted, "Your father showed no mercy to my friend, to Chund Koor, the wife of Naa Hehal Singh," and then slew the hov. He then rode off to the city, and on the way met Dhyan Sin^h, the Prime Minister, to whom he answered to a ques- tion, "why he was in such haste?" by stating, "come with me; I have something to tell von." As they got into the city he made a sign to one of his followers, who shot the minister. After the death of the Prime Minister, his son, Heera Silgh, procured the co-operation of General Ventura, and attacked the city and citadel, of which they soon got possession, and Ajeet Singh was caught by a soldier as he sought to escape in a basket down the wall. The soldier slew him, and took his head to Heera Singh, who rewarded him with a lakh ofrupees. CHINA. The news from China is to the 28th of August. The state of business, with the exception of the coasting trade, does not appear satisfactory at Hong Kong, so that many of the merchants declined go:ng there- Sickness existed there to a considerable extent. Opium was not to be protected by the Briiish, and yet the smuggling continued to prosper- The Bogue fortes were rebuilt iu nearly the same state as before. The Chinese government had claimed 4,000,000 dollars from the Hong merchants as a contribution on account of the Canton rarison. The Emperor had issued several proclama- tions, exhibiting a wish to protect "the foreign barbarians," and to punish those officers who had maltreated the sailors that were shipwrecked in the Nerbudda and Anue in the beginning of 1842. Messrs. Morrison and Johnson, and Major W. Currie, have been appointed members of the council of the colony, with the title of" Honourable."
COURT OF BANKRUPTCY, BRISTOL…
COURT OF BANKRUPTCY, BRISTOL DISTRICT THURSDAY. Re Harfords, Davies, and Co. Proof of debts. Proofs to the amount of about £ G,000 were admitted. FRIDAY. Re Harft rja, Davies, nnd Co.—Final examination. Mr. Bates and Mr. I-lutton successively said they consi- dered the balance sheet very satisfactory. His honour (Serjeant Stephen) The value of the property appears to exceed £ 400,000. This is founded on the value of iron at that time, £ 9 5s. a ton; but since that the price has fallen. I should think, after the security, creditors are 11 ,I r., an satisfied, and allowing tor the expenses ot working the fiat, there will hardly be more than eight shillings in the pound dividend. Mr. Clark (Messrs. Savery and Clark) hoped for better things. Ile went into details on the subject. His honour said he had only made the remark in caution, that creditors might not he disappointed. Mr. Clark said the private estate of Mr. Harford would produce a considerable surplus, and that of Mr. Davies some surplus, all available for the estate. His honour asked if any negociation was in train for the sale of the property. Mr. Bates replied that something was on foot, but not ripe for explanation. His lionour.-If the works are continued, it should not be done without consulting the creditors. Mt-. Clark.-If any loss is likely, they will be called together, Mr. Davies was then examined at considerable length by Mr. D. Fripp. It appeared that the debt ot Mr. Samuel Harford to the ifrm was at one time £ >>0,000, diminished by some instalments. Part of Mr. S. Harford's debt had been made good by his transfer to the firm of his share in the Chew property. The item, on the other side, "(jlover's Estate," liail been in the books of the firm increased in 1832, from £25,000 to £ 85,000, it being, in the opinion of the firm, borne out by competent persons, of that value. The firm had long considered Mr. S. IIai ford's debt bad, and from the in- creased value of Glover's estate, they had written off the debt as bad, and increased the value of Glover's Estate in their books. On the 14th of April, lSllfi, they had added £ 200,000 to the value of Glover's Estate, in consequence of the prosper- ous state of the iron trade; the works would then have fetched a very large sum, and the firm thought it unjust to such of their partners as might die, that the works should continue at the thfn valuation in the hooks. All entry (Oil the balance sheet) June 30, !S3ti, reducing the vilue ot these work, must be in error—183fi instead of 1837 being founded oil a reso- lution passed in April, 1837, upon the then depressed stiite of the iron trade. Being unable to raise money by admitting a new partner, the firm had authorized their attorneys (Messrs. Cooke) to raise a loan by paying more linn the usual rate of interest, in order to meet a payment due in 1"i,) to the retiring partners. Mr. John Hariord ind given lo the West of England Bank a security on thirty Bristol and and Gloucester Railway shares. This was done after the firm had received advice from Messrs. Cooke not to give a preference to any creditor; but an engagement to give the security had been made before this advice had been given. These being the principal facts stated. His honour said, it appeared that there was a large sum due from the bankrupts on account of for which notes of the firni were granted. All t'lese deposits, except one, were originally made with previom partnerships of the house; and, except that one, the firm were liable oil deposit accounts, only by having taken on themselves all the liabilities of the previous firms. AN IRISH SPECIAL COMMISSION.—O'Connell, at once bowing to the and saluting I'ennefather with the it o,t marked and respectful courtesy, which was cordially retuned, appologized for not having appeared in a more professional costume, and craved permission to relresh himself in court. A bowl of lIIilk and some bread and meat were sent into him, and while at either side of hiin a young barrister filled each ear with all that had been done, and how the case of the ac- cused stood, O'Connell gratified his appetite for breakfast with evident relish after his long morning ride. Twas rather a cou-trast-the b:g, massive agitator slubbering his meal in a court-house, and t!ie graceful, aristocratic Mr. Doherty talking in the most refined manner to the jury. What led to the enmity between O Connell and Mr. Doherty is not pub- licly known, but they on that day appeared to he enemies with no ordinary hatred and animosity. As the solicitor-general laid down a doctrine of law, O'Connell, with a marked con- tempt, cried out in the middle of his breakfast, "Tint's not law." The bench was appealed to, and the point ruled with O'Connell, who, as the pugilists sav, "drew first blood." The solicitor-general resumed his statement, but he had not gone much further when O'Connell jumped up—" Tiie crown cannot make such a statement as that—it has no right to put in such evidence to the jury"-anrl again the bench decided for O'Connell.—Ireland and its Rulers since THE EARLY DAYS OF PRINCE LEOPOLD.—During the campaigns in Germany the gallant Duke of Brunswick, who was uncle of the Princess Charlotte, found his attention much attracted and rivetted by a youthful warrior and diplo- mati-it, Prince Leopold of Saxe Cobourg. He was the second brother to the then reigning duke, and grand-nephew of that Prince of Cobourg whose name, as conimmider-in-chief of the Austrian armies, was so familiar to us all du ing the early revolutionary war. This young Prince Leopold was also on the most intimate terms of friendship and family connexion with; the Emperor Alexander of Russia, his sister being married to the Archduke Constantine • and he arrived in London during the visit of the allied sovereigns in 1.S14, on which occasion he was the bearer of a letter from the Duke of Brunswick to his niece the Princess Charlotte. His pleasing manner was not unnoticed by that illustrious lady, and his visits at her tea-table" were evidently most aecept- ab e. To the external advantages of a fine figure and a good countenance lie added suavity of behaviour and elegance of address; and, besides all this, he enjoyed the character of being a good soldier and a brave man. His residence in London was prolonged. He lived not only prudently, but with great economy, and the princess admired his conduct, and spoke of it with commendation, "lie is so poor, your royal highness," said one of her ladies-in-waiting on one occasion; "why, all his dominions will be scarcely larger than a country parish." The princess replied, So much the better, my lady, he will have more time to attend to me. Frazer's Magazine for Veccmber. ORDER. -An orderly mau arranges his bookshelf, puttinc the works 01 one kind or treating of one subject toglther lie goes away contented with the idea that now no effort of memory will be required to know where a particular book is among a few hundreds of volumes, and no useless time will be expended in seeking, when he shall have forgotten the place of each individual work. He has only to know the subject of the work in question, and by this is guided to its place. Now comes his tidy wife. The hooks of one size are set together; little ones at the top, great ones at the bottom. The Prayer-book cannot lie by the Bible; it is too Jittle; it must go, along with an annual and a pocket dictionary, on to r, y the top IAn atlas, and a book on designing, must stand by the bible, because her bump of tidiness (order run mad) has found, or fancied, a connexion between them. There is nothing this mad woman won't do. The excellent arrange- ment ot a dictionary, by means of which one particular word may be found in a minute, amongst many thousands, would be changed by her obedience to a favourite saw, "Little ones at the top, and great ones at the bottom;" and if any one complained they could not find what they wanted, she would answer, You should remember where you put it." You ought to be able to go to it in the dark," &c.—Tait's Magazine.
THE TRUCK SYSTEM.
THE TRUCK SYSTEM. To the Editor of the Adrertiser and G-wrdivi. SIR,—Although the trade of CrickhoweU i.s not iik<> that of Brynmawr, entirely dependent upon the mining districts, I lament to say, it is now not entirely exempt from the evil eilects ot the viio Truck sv jt*m. Tiie workmen of an establishment, not many miles distant from hence, used to favour our little m irket with their custom. Tie-y have recently ceased doing so. And why have they cea«" i! ? W hen first they were missed at their accustomed stand, there was a general expression of astonishment. The mystery was, however, quickly cleared up. It was found, that a certain company, moved by the spirit of benevolence, had embarked in the business of general shopkeepers, and out of the ahnn- S, 11 if-n wl dunce of their stores, supplied the woikmen with food and raiment at cost price. The company anout to sell cheese and butter, soap and candies, at cost price exclaimed a fac-tious of tite law." What are they to get hr thai i I have not heard of a lawyer, since the days of Old Parr, whose magnanimity carried him captivn to the extent of volunteering his service for ollly "COSls out of pocket." Here the exciting topic came to a stand-still, none venturing to doubt the absolute right ol" a Welsh iron-master to do what he liked with his own. 0 The foregoing version of the case has, however, since been often contradicted. Yesterday having some business to transact in that direc- tion, I had an opportunity of getting at the secrets of the prison-liouse." While moving xlon. witli silent steps and slow," I met a woman, whom I known for years, and on whose testimony I could.implicitly rely. Weil, Mary, said I, what has happened to prevent your weekly visits to CrickhoweU ot late? Don't you know, Sir Why, we are bound to the Company's shop now; tltey have printed notes, and we are forced to take them to tlit- sliol) for goods. I can show you one of them." II Clyncothy Iron Compy., To Jack Nokes, On account of work, fifteen shillings, Correct, Tom Styles." I told her I had been given to understand, that the men were supplied with goods on better terms than they could get them elsewhere. Oli bless you, Sir," she answered, they did talk about it at first, to be sure but we could get everything much cheaper at other places, only we dare nL)t say anything. As this fully confirmed what I had previously heard from many others, I pursued the subject no further. From this, Sir, it would appear, that the upshot of this mighty Tommy Shop" undertaking is, after all, Tru>k! Truck!!

CWMBAIIGOED COLLIERY. To the Editor of the Advertiser and Guardian. Slit, — During the time of my indisposition, through the eftects of burning when the fire-damp exploded at Cwmhar- goed Colliery, I heard read, in yoiir journal, an account of the accident, written, I presume, by a person who was totally ignorant of the circumstances, In winch he stated it was "auother instance of the nglect or using Sir II. Davy's lamp," an expression which evidently indicates his want of knowledge in the mode of conducting the mines and inspecting the airways. The unexperienced, who have no idea of those matters, may suppose, by his assertion, that every poor collier can afford to buy a lamp tor his own use, exci usively-or, at least, he ought to do so. In order to enlighten your correspoulIent upon the subject, and to prove that no blame is attached, except it he to the person who was instrumental to ignite the gas, I shall briefly state the particulars. The Dowlais Iron Co. employ men, whom they furnish with those lamps, to inspect the airways and all the headings, in each level, every morning before the men begin to work, and to fix pieces of timber across each other, as signs for the miners not to approach danger. On the morning in question, the whole of this colliery had been duly examined, and the usual signals set about fifteen or sixteen yards distant from the inll unable air. When the colliers came to their work, a stranger, who had but the pre- vious week commenced working in a mine, went, it is supposed, over the mark to fetch some tools, which had been left there on the previous Saturday; and instantly the flame ot his candle came in contact with the gas, it explode and continued in a mass of hurtling 11 une for a minute or a minute and a half, during which time it blew many doors to atoms, and nearly upset several men who were descenlling a pit of ISO yards in depth, and the distance of 3uo yanh from the place II! ignition. Had I been able I should have written sooner to vindicate the parties concerned and in honour of the company's agents, who rendered in every comfort, in our calamitous condition. (Ii.a liiini'uiity ci.ufif have suggested, and to the surgeons who attended us with such promptitude. In hope you will be kind enough to give this publicity, I am, Sir, Yours respeclfuliv, ONE OF THE SUFFHllERS. P.S. The person, who it is presumed, lighted the gas, died in the course of a few days,in consequence of his clothes being set on fire, and his inside burnt through drawing in the thme in the act of breathing. The others who sullered were a con- siderable distance from the spot in which this uufortunate lInn WitS so dreadfully burnt. Dowlais Iron Works, ) Dec. 11, 1813. )

Last week, Mr. | Swain, of I'leet-strcet, who was mainly instrumental ill A getting up petitions in favour of the Chartist leaders, sentenced to be hanged in 1840, for high treason, received a communication from Mr. John Frost, the leader of the rebels that attacked Newport, in which Frost thanks .Mr. Swain for the interest lie took in his fate, and also states that he and iliiams have been brought back from the penal settlement, whither they had been sent fov having attempted t to make their cscape. Frost is comfortably situated as .1 clerk, and is most anxious that his family should -,o out to him. \T iliiams still wears the log oil his le, aiil Jones holds the situation he got shortly after his arrival in the colony. Geacb, the step-son of Frost, the ChartUt chief iu the attack upon Newpsrt in 1839, who is a solicitor, and was about two years since transposed for 20 years for forgery, has been, after working 20 months on the roads, allowed a "ticket of leave," and has been hired as a free servant to his wife, who followed him out. Frost, who, as has been already stated, is released from the penal gang, and is in a situation as clerk, has sent a letter to Mrs. Frost and his daughters, desiring them to go out also, in the hope that J Mrs. Frost, will be allowed to hire him as a free servant. The Governer having informed Frost, Williams, and Jones, that the Home-office has finally determined never to allow them to return to their native land, they have resigned themselves to their fate with a determination to secure to themselves kind treatment by their tutu re good conduct.
