ORIGINAL POETRY. COME, SEE THE PLACK WHElH JESUS LAY." MATT. XXVIII. BY A CHURCHMAN. With drooping heart, by sorrow rent, Her steps the weeping Mary bent, Ere twilight yet had merged in day, To see the place where Jesus lay. Close to the tomb, enrobed in white, An jangel's form burst on her sight And he had rolled the stone away Which barred the place where Jesus lay. No roclcy doors could stay his flight, No guards enchain him with their might; But lo a seraph's voice doth say- Come, see the place where Jesus lay." Why seek ye," thus the angel said, The living 'nujngst the silent de;id The Grave nor Death could bid him stay, Coine, see the place where JesQs lay." Like sweetest music was that strain,— «' He is not here. but risen again;" Gladly doth she his voice obey, And sees the place where Jesus lay. 0 grant us faith, 0 Lord, that we May look with joy to Calvary; And often in the garden stray. To see the place where Jesus lay. THE RESURRECTION. BY THE SAME. (From the Collect for the Day.) Death where is thy boasted sting ? Grave! say where thy victory ? Christ is now the Victor-King, All his foes before him flee. By the blood from Jesu's side All our sins are washed away He the gate has opened wide, Leading to eternal day. Pray we, Lord, that by the grace Thou delightest to bestow, Thou would'st go before our face, Keep us from all ill below. Fill our minds with good desires, Breathe on us thy blessing, Lord Lo! each heart to thee aspires, Now thy Spirit's aid affotd. Through our Saviour Christ we pray, Through thine only Son we plead Hear us for his sake, and may He supply our every need. Now with thee he lives and reigns, Father, Spirit.—Holy Three,— Where thy praise, in sweetest strains, Fills all heaven with harmony. Merthyr.

IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF COM MONS-VPEDNESDAY, MARCB-20; The House met for a short time only. Various petitions were presented and notices of motion given: and On the motion of Mr PAKINGTON, the Sa'e of Beer Act Amendment Bill was read a second time without a division, though some notices were given; of alterations intended to be proposed when the Bill should go into Committee. .#.#1' HOUSE OF LORDS-THURSDAY, MARCH 21. On the Order of the Day having been read for considering a motion relative to the state of Ire- land, The Earl of RODEN rose and prefaced a speech equally remarkable for the cogency of its reasoning, the firmness of ITS tone, and the fearful nature of its facts, by observing that no other motive than a strong sense of the duty he owed his country could' induce him to forego the happiness and tranquillity of his domestic circle to come into that House, year after year, to occupy their Lordships' attention with the unhappy and distracted condition of the country to which he belonged. Ile felt the diffictilty because he felt the vastness of his subject. Their Lordships would remember, that, at the.commence- ment of the last Session of Parliament, there was a paragraph in the speech from the Throne in which external and "domestic" tranquillity was men- tioned. Their Lordships would also recollect that the Noble Lord who seconded the address had ex- tended the application of that paragraph, not only to England and Scotland, but to Ireland. Their Lordships would further recollect that he (the Earl of Koden) objected to the application of that para- graph with respect to Ireland, and he afterwards submitted to the House a motion on the subject. In opposing this motion, that Noble Lord had not disproved any one of the statements made by him; but he should now confine himself to facts which had occurred since he had the honour of addressing their Lordships, with the same view as at present, last year. After specifying numerous particulars of various outrages since that period, the Noble Earl closed this branch of his subject, which abounded with details of the most frightful cha- racter, exhibiting a list of murders perpetrated, in many instances, in the open day, and, tor the most part, unpunished, in consequence of the system of intimidation, which prevented witnesses from giving evidence, under the apprehension of death, by stating that no fewer than 112deaths by violence had taken place; and he believed it would be found upon examination that there were many more. The motion he was about to submit should command their Lordships' assent from its being. an act of justice to the Noble Marquess, on whose govern- ment rested so much responsibility for those tears of sorrow and streams of blood that had marked the career of his viceregal authority. (Cheers.) Lord Roden then proceeded to show the baleful effects of the wholesale pardon extended to offenders by the late Lord-Lieutenant, in the encouragement it gave to fresh crime. He would next call their Lordships' attention to the association known by the name ot the Precursor Society, and which had been es. tablished and carried on for purposes of mischief by a Learltfed Gentleman who was the stay and support of the present Government, and of whom the Noble Viscount opposite had said, that he had the most perfect confidence in Her Majesty's Govern- ment. Of this society the Learned Gentleman was the chief; but though it had been called into existence by his influence, it was supported and upheld by the Roman Catholic Priests. The Government had suppressed the Orange Society, whose purposes were legal and influence beneficial; how long was the Precursor Society to be upheld by it, for upheld it was, whose avowed object was the destruction of the Protestant Church in Ireland, and which held out as an intimidation to the loyal the fear of 7,000,000 of a Popish population ? The next subject to which he was anxious to call their Lordship's attention as a ground for the Committee he intended to move for, he had before alluded to. The subject was that of a conspiracy in Ireland--a conspiracy systematic, organized and secret, and which was directed against the life and property of all who would not join it and support the treason- able objects which its members had in view. The existence of such a conspiracy was substantiated by the speech of Judge Burton in discharging the Jury at thec'ose of the Tipperary Commission by the testimony of the Lord Chief Justice of the Queen's Bench; and the assassination of Lord Norbury. His Lordship further illustrated its or- ganization by means of the Priests and their threats from the altar, by a review of the persecution suffered bv the Protestant colony at Achill; and concluded his powerful speech by moving a Select Committee to inquire into the state ot Ireland since the year 1835 with respect to the commission of crime. The Marquess of NORM A IN BY detenaed his conduct in the Government of Ireland, resisted the motion as calculated to have an injurious effect on the tranquillity of that country, and shifted the onus of the sufferance of the Precursor Society from himself to her Majesty's Government. In reply to a point-blank observation from the Duke of Wellington, whieh disarranged his glib manner of getting over his subject, the Noble Marquess was obliged to confess that Ribandism was not quite extinct. The Noble Marquess wound up his defence, if so it may be called, by sentimentalizing on the gratitude of the Irish people towards him, and the approval of his own conscience. The Duke of WELLINGTON went, as he al- ways does, straight to the mark. It was proved that from two to three outrages a day, or from 700 to 1,000 in a year took place in Ireland. Surely this fact alone was sufficient to show the necessity of an inquiry. The Noble Marquess had said that upon every occasion that subjects of this nature had been brought under the notice of their Lord- ships' House, it had been shown that the state of Ireland had never been otherwise than disturbed. That was certainly rather a large way of disposing of the question. (Hear, hear.) He (the Duke of Wellington), however, was somewhat of a different opinion. Upon former occasions they had not a Government, they had not had Majesty itself com- ing down to Parliament to tell them that Ireland was in a state of tranquillity. (Cheers.) On a former occasion, he had pointed out the difference in the returns on the state of crime in Ireland pre- sented to the two Houses of Parliament. He held in his hand similar returns for the year, or rather in continuation of the year, 1838 ? and would their Lordships believe that under the returns of the inspectors of prisons, and those made by the clerks of the Crown, and clerks of the peace, who made the returns of the number of prisoners tried at the assizes and quarter sessions, there was in the year 1837 the difference between 14,804 and 22,241, and that in this year that difference should be increased to 27,340? This faot alone, too, would be sufficient to authorise an inquiry! The Noble Marquess had boasted of having made no distinctions between Protestants and Cattiolies-liad he made none be- tween Orangemen and Ribandmen. (Hear.) This was the right ground on which the question rested. He saw no alternative but that their Lordships should satisfy themselves by inquiry; and, there- fore, he would vote for the Committee. That the inquiry will be a searching one is tolerably clear from his Grace's two words of answer to Lord Nor- manby's remark that it would be quite unparalleled for the House to control the Exeoutive Government. II We'll try," said the Duke. After furtherdebate, in which the Earl ofCharle- ville, Lord Rossmore, Lord Donoughmore, Lord Lismore, the Marquess of Westmeath, Earl of Fingall, Viscount Melbourne, Lord Brongham. Lord Plunket (between the which two Noble Lords, the first voting for the motion, some smart hits pasted), and the Earl of Winchilsea, took a share, the House divided, when the motion was carried by 63 contents to 58 non contents. The House ad- journed at ten minutes to four o clock, a m. HOUSE OF COMMON'S-THURSDAY, MARCH 21. Mr BUCK took the oaths and his seat for North Devonshire. The motion that the London and Blaokwall Commercial Railway" Bill be read the second time, called forth considerable opposition. Among; its chief opponents were Mr Crawford and Mr D. W. Harvey, the latter of which gentlemen said that he had received a petition signed by the owners and ocoupiers of every wharf on the eastern tide of the Thames, men whose property he under- rated when he stated it to exceed half a million. They opposed this Bill on the ground that they had withdrawn their opposition to the Bill of 1836 on the express understanding embodied in the Act which now existed, to the effect that the railway was not to come nearer to London than the eastern side of the Minories. It was now proposed to bring it into the heart of the city. This, though called a private Bill, was in importance a public Bill, and well deserved the attention of the House, for if it should paliø into a law, a precedent would be esta- blished for bringing all the railroads by which the city was surrounded into the city itself. If this Mr LABOUCHERE said, in answer to a question J from Mr O'Connell, that he had much satisfaction instating from despatches that had been received; from Sir J. Colborne and Sir G. Arthur, that it. would not be necessary to carry the infliction oP capital punishments farther in Canada. Mr HIJME rose to inovo a resolution, the effect of which was to introduce household suffrage as-an amendment of the Reform Aot, but the lion Gen- tleman concluded his speech by simply moving for leave to bring in a Bill to amend that Act. The Hon. Member puzzled himself and wearied his hearers by reading a number of statistical tables, and solemnly assured the House that the only means of securing the prosperity of the empire was to follow his advice notwithstanding which power- ful incentive, after a short discussion, the motion was negatived by a majority of 85 to 50. The House was counted out at half-past nine o'clock on a motion of Mr French, for an address to the Crown praying that her Majesty will direct measures to be taken for securing to every province, in Ireland the advantages of railroad communica- tion. HOUSE OF LORDS-FRIDAY, MARCH 22. The Tithe Composition (Ireland) Arrears Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed on Monday. Lord NORMANBY, referring to the debate on the previous night, and objecting to serve on the Com- mittee appointed in pursuance of the motion of Lord Roden; took occasion to remonstrate with his Noble and Learned "Friend," Lord Brougham, and in- timated that, "however painful it was, he must forego the friendship of the Noble and Learned Lord because he felt that the Noble and Learned Lord had not acted towards him with that sincerity which usually characterised him, and which he (the Marquess of Normanby) thought that he had a right to expect." Lord BROUGHAM received this intimation In a manner which we know not how to characterise by any other term than that of "merry mourning." He, however, very seriously vindicated the conduct which had given such offence to Lord Normanby. Lord NORMANBY persisted in his objection not to serve on the Committee, and the Duke of Rioh. mond was appointed to be a member. The Duke of Wellington's Estate Bill was read a first time. On the motion of Lord WHARNCLIFFE, a return from the police force in Ireland of the outrages committed in the different baronies or districts, from the 1st of January, 1835, to the latest period, was ordered. The second reading of the Beer Bill, fixed for Monday next, was discharged in consequence of the absence of the Duke of Wellington. It is to be brought on after the Easter recess. The House then adjourned. HOUSE OF COMSIONS-FRIDAIF, MARCH 22. The SPEAKER announced that he had received a communication from Mr Bruen, in which that gentle- man declined to defend his return for Carlow. The Duke of WELLINGTON'S Estate Acts Amendments Bill was read a third time and passed. The Norwich Tonnage Bill was, on the motion of Lord Douro, read a second time. In answer to Lord Sandon, Mr RICE said that it was intended, after Easter, to introduce a Bill on the subject of joiut stock banks generally. In answer to Mr bhaw, Lord MORPETH said that further proceedings with respect to the Irish railways, would be taken oil the 23nd of April. Lord J. RUSSELL, on rising for the purpose of postponing the Committee upon the Irish Municipal Corporation Bill until Monday, April 15, took that occasion of stating to the House that it was his in- tention in the course of the first week after the recess, and on the earliest opportunity that presented itself, to ask for the opinion of that House upon the government of Ireland during late years. His Lord- ship, referring to the division in the Lords on Thursday, stated, that if the House should not approve of the principles that had been followed in the government of that country, but should think they ought to be abandoned and others adopted, then he should consider it his duty to relinquish to other hands the government of the country.-(rhis announcement was received with great cheering.) The Ecclesiastical Appointments Suspension Bill was read a second time and ordered to be committed on Monday. u In answer to !Vlr iviaciean, Lord PALMERSTON stated, that "The treaty with the Ottoman Porte did uot extend to Circasaia. It only applied to territories under the dominion of the Porte, and he did not apprehend that the Porte laid any claim to Circassia." Mr MACLEAN would then give notice of his in- tention soon after Cafte; to call the attention of the House to the subject. The House then went into a Committee of Supply for the sake of discussing the army estimates. These estimates are usually questions of detail; but last night, when Lord Howick moved the first vote, a debate of some interest, relating to the general state of our defence, was raised by Sir H. HAltDINGE, who took a clear and com- prehensive view of the military situation of this country, especially with regard to its colonial rela- tions. The vote proposed by Lord Howick was for only 4,000 to 5,000 troops beyond the esta- blishment of last year, an addition which Sir H. Hardinge considered wholly inadequate to the vari- ous exigencies of our present position. In India, while large operations were going forward, the numbers both of the native and of the regular troops had been diminished. In Canada our force wa notoriously insufficient for the support and incour- agement so rightfully due to our loyal population there. In NEW Brunswick, where the great dispute was going forward respecting the boundary of Maine, the whole regular force of Sir J. Harvey, the Gover- nor, amounted only to something between j50 and 500 men. The Government at home had sent him order, if the Americans should institute hostile measures for the adjustment of the territorial ques- tion, to repel force by force; and though, very for- tnately, the British Envoy, Mr Fox, had taken upon him the responsibility of countermanding those oider.», it was monstrous to have placed a British Governor, even fur a day, in the degrading situation of having to issue a threat which he knew he had not the power to enforce. In Jamaica the condition of affairs as such that a suspension of the island conslitutioll had been announced by the Ministers; yet no adequate force was on the spot, the means of that station having been reduced by the transfer of detachments to Vera Cruz. Nor had any of th. se positions the facility of drawing resources from any other quarter. Every Colony was under manned, and in every Colony the troops were over-worked. Neither in ancient nor in modern times had troops ever permanently endured such hard service. One- tenth of the globe had been conquered, and was to be maintained by British arms, and 150,000,000 of subjects were to be governed and protected and yet Ministers did not venture to solicit Parliament for the necessary amount of military defence. Lord HOWICK admitted the severity of the ser- vice, but contended that it WAS not harder than in former days. He explained the distribution of force in previous years but as to answering the observa- tions of Sir Henry Hardinge, that, he said it was difficult for hiin to do. But the most exquisite Why ? Because it would not be discreet to disclose the amount of available force at the respective stations. Now, if each position had a garrison adequate to the danger of ITS circumstances, the avowal of such strength, weshould have thought, must be wise, as a means of deterring hostility- The true difficulty was the fear of exposing the insufficient resources which Ministers have been guilty of leaving the country. Mr C. BULLER asked, Did Lord Howick know in how defenceless a state Quebec had been left during the late rebellion? It was fortunate that the sympathizers had been equally ignorant. No answer had been given to the allegation that only 350 men were at the disposal of Sir J. Harvey, when instructed to repel force by force in New Bruuswick. Could you have drawn troops from Canada to supply the deficiency? If you had, the sympathizers woutd" have been on the alert. Lord PALMERSTON vindicated himself against Øhe imputation of delay; and after a few words from Lord Arthur Lennox, Sir J. HOBHOUSE adverted to the observations made on the amount of force in India. He said he had applied to the War Department for an addition of force in that part of the British dominions; being df opinion, for his own part, that war, if conducted at all, should be conducted with energy. [The said opinion, be it noted, having been constantly rung in the ears of Ministers by the Duke of Wellington.] Mr HUME thought India required aid: he had himself witnessed the evils resulting there from the want of sufficient roilitarjy support; but he thought whatever was wanting for India might be withdrawxfrom some other quarter. Mercy on us —what a head! The votes in the esl imates havink been agreed which a petition has been presented, leave was given accordingly, and at a eleven o'clook the House adjourned till Monday. .<# ,6< HOUSE OF LORDS—SATURDAY, MARCH 23. The Duke of Wellington's Estate Bill was read a second time, committed, and ordered to be read a third time on Monday. The Tithes Composition (Ireland) Arrears Bill went through a committee, and was also ordered to be read a third time on Monday. .#ø" HOUSE OF LORDS-MOXDAY, MARCH 25. Lord MELBOURNE gave notice, that he would the next day move that the House at its rising do adjourn till Thursday, the 11th of April. The Duke of WELLINGTON S Estate Bill was read a third time and passed. On the motion of Lord ABERDEEN, a return was ordered of the expense incurred by the Scotch Church Commission from its first appointment in 1835. The Noble Lord observed that a similar return had been ordered last year, but that it had not been produced. Lord WHARNCLIFFE stated, that he WAS di- rected by the Committee on the state of Ireland to move for a return of the medical certificates on which prisoners in Ireland had been discharged also that Colonel S. Kennedy and certain other persons should be summoned, in order that they might give evidence before the Committee. Lord DUNCANNON presented the fourth report of the Criminal Law Commissioners. Lord BROUGHAM gave notice, that he would the following evening, move for returns relative to the Canadian prisoners now in Newgate. The House adjourned shortly before 6 o'clook. .# HOUSE OF COMMONS—MONDAY, MARCH 25. Mr ELLIS took the oaths and his seat for Lei- cester. Sir R. PEEL asked Lord John Russell if he would place upon the notice-book the day on which he meant to bring forward the motion of which he had given general notice on Friday, and which had reference to recent proceedings in the other House of Parliament. Lord J. RUSSELL said he would fix his motion for Thursday, the I Ith of April. The Ecclesiastical Appointments Suspension Bill went through Committee. Before going into Committee of Supply, the House was occupied with a motion of Captain Boldero for an address to the Crown for a copy of the order issued to the marines obliging them to provide their own great-coats; and with a motion of Mr T. Attwood for an address to the Crown praying that timely and efficient measures may be adopted for obtaining a due supply of able seamen for the royal navy. Captain Boldero, after a short discussion, withdrew his motion, and although Mr T. Attwood enforced his by a speech of consider- able length, yet it fell to the ground, in conse- quence of no Hon. Member coming forward to second it. The House having gone into Committee of sup- ply, the navy estimates were proceeded with. Mr HUME severely censured the Admiralty for putting the people to an unwarrantable expense in ellowinl a ship of-war (the Hastings) to attend the Queen Dowager to Malta! On the motion of Mr MACKINNON, a Select Committee was nominated for the purpose of as- certaining how far the formation of railroads may affect the interests of turnpike trusts and the creditors of such trusts. The House adjourned at « quarter to 1 o'clock.

Evaus, Esq., M.P., Joseph Pease, Esq M.P., W. T. Blair, Esq., Mr Lecesne and Mr Russell (two gentlemen of colour), and Air Robert Stokes, presented to The Marquis of Stigo, at his residence No. 2, Mansfield- street, a piece of plate, consisting of a magnificent candelabrum, in the Iorio of the Arica Palm (the tree of West India Itbrty), from whose graceful and feathery top "prlllg light and elegant branches for seven lights. At the foot of the palm tree ill a group of West Indian negroes. The base is triangular, and richly ornamented ith the sugar cane and Indian corn. On two Rides of the base are the armorial bearings and crest of the Marquis of Sligo, with the collar of St. Patrick in bold relief; and on the third side is the Allowing inscription:—Pre- sented to the most noble Howard Peter Marquis of Sligo, by the negroes of Jamaica, in testimony of the grateful remembrance they entertain for his un- remitting efforts to alleviate their sufferings and to redress their wrong*, during his just and enlightened administration of the government of the island, and of the respect and gratitude they reel towards his excellent Lti,iy and flintily, for the kindness and sympathy displayed towards them—1837." The total height of the candelabrum is 3 feet 6 inches. We believe that the report of the commis- sioners appointed to inquire into the propriety of establishing a rural notice will very shortly be laid before Parliament. The report is very voluminoui, and contains a great body of evidence and, although its recommendations have not yet transpired, we believe We may venture to state that the com- missioners have saegested that a paid constabulary force be established in any county, riding, or division, under tlie control of the magistrates of the district, provided they, the gl)ardianq of the poor, or a certain portion of the inhabitants, shall apply to the police commissioners for that purpose; and that the expense of such force in to be paid partly out of the county rate and partly out of the consolidated fund. We believe the report is very ably drawn, and will excite considerable interest in the provincial dis- tricts. — Observer. DEATH OF THE HON. MRS. MILDMAY.—We regret to announce the death of this ainiable lady, from the effects of ber clothes having caught fire a few days ago. At first it was hoped that the injuries sustained were not of a serious character, but when the bandages and the remains of the burnt clothes were removed, the worst apprehensions were imme- diately entertained, and in a short tiiue the unfortu- nate lady fell a victim. She was a daughter of Lord Ashburton, and will be long regretted by a very numerous circle of relatives and admiring friends. THE TOOTH -Acti P-Tbe following remedy, which is of recent discovery, has, in several cases within the writer's knowledge, and in his own case among the rest, afforded instantaneous and permanent relief to sufferers from this disease.

ADVANTAGES OF I"INOLAWD.-We have much pleasure in laying before our readers the following testimony of Mr Elliott, who, after extensive travels through various countries in Europe and Asia, comes to this sound conclusion respecting their comparative advantages: In conclusion, therefore I will only add that, after traversing so many country, observ- ing so many different modes of civilized and semi- barbarous life, and becoming acquanued with such various political and religioul institutions, it is with increased pleasure and admiration that I contemplate the state of society in our favoured land. Some na- tions, perhaps, may boast more taste and refinement: some a more showy literature and more splendid public monuments;" and others, more renowned achievements in arts alld arms: but, in the solid ad- vantages and comforts of life in profound learning and experimental philosophy, In pnvate and public virtue, in all that secures domestic happiness and peace, or constitutes lasting excellence and real greatness;' the administration of equal laws and impartial justice; tho enjoyment of a liberty as yet restrained from licentiousness; and the free exercise of a religion equally rpmoved from the extremes of fanaticism and indifference; I know not the equal or the rival of Britain. Nor can I indulge for my country a higher hope than that she may long retain, under the Divine favour, the institutions which have for ages been her glory, enhanced in value by the gradual but judicious correction of their accidental defects, and consolidated in strength by the increased public estimate of their superior merits: that we, her sons, may be preserved from a bigoted pre- judice. in favour of what is old, and a feverish ap- _1 _L -,t £.L.& a_
THE CHURCH. An address was agreed to at the late Oxford Convocation, praying the Houses of Parliament to take into consideration the deficiency in the means of religious instruction in many parts of the king- dom. This is a step every way becoming the first University in the world-the nurse of learning and letters to England for a thousand years. It eminently belongs to Oxford to lend the weight of her dignity and character to a cause so sacred and we cannot doubt that, independently of the general influence of that dignity and character, the act of the University will have a particular authority with all her sons. We have never met any one, who had not been either a dunce or a profligate, that did not entertain a filial affection and reverence for the place of his education, that could ever entirely separate himself in thought and heart from the instructors and associates of his happiest and most useful day*. We cannot doubt, then, that the Voice of Oxford interceding in the cause of religion will be received by every Oxford man as he would receive the voice of an actual mother, employed in like holy mediation; and that all who acknowledge their debt to Ox- ford will take an ardent part in promoting the object of this address.-Stan(lard. I. ,A-.r.. \LEHGY CHARITY.—According to ME report on the state of the institution for the relief of the widows and orphans ofelergynien who hav e officiated within the archdeaconry of Chester, it appears that the total amount of subscriptions for the past year i. £ 955 9s 6d., and that the sum of X990 has been distributed amongst thirty-seven widows, and E382 to twenty-five orphafs. The society has still a balance of EI32 18s. In the Warrington bank. The annual meeting will be held in Manchester, on the third Thursday in July. The parochial clergy of the Diocese of Win- chester, have petitioned against any increase of their livings being affected by the sacrifice or invasion of prebendal stalls, or other cathedral emoluments. What will the assailants orlhe "graspiug" clergy say to this new instance ot that sordid feelill which they Impute so liberally to the miuisters of the Esta- blishment? The Lord Bishop of Ripon will hold his next ordination on Sunday, the 28th of July. His Lord- ship requires three months' notice at least from candidates for deacons orders, and all candidates are required to seud their papers to his Lordship on or before the 20th of June. TESTIMONY OF RESPECT TO THE REV. F. CLOSE. -In October last, a subscription was entered into by ■ many of the friends and parishioners of the Rev. F. Close, for the purpose of presenting to him a testi- mony of their respect. The object contemplated was, that as Mr Close had engaged to become the tenant of a house then in course of erection" instead or allowing him to be merely the lessee, his friends were anxious it should be made his own. The sum of £ 2235 12. the result of the subscription, was pre- sented to the Itev. Gent. on Monday last. METROPOLIS CHURCHES FUND.-We under- stand that the large sum of ^205 was collected two Sundays since at the church of the united parishes of St. Vedast Foster and St. Michael le Querne, Cheapside, after a sermon by the Lord Bishop of London in behalf of this fund. We hope that the liberality with which the bishop's appeal has been met oil this occasion will induce other parishes in the city to propose similar collections in their respective churches for the same great cause, It is briefly mentioned with regard to the church, that the increase in all its schools, between the years 1831 and 1837, appears to be, Sunday and daily schools 2,979, with 60,531 scholars, and 631 Sunday-schools with 35,517 scholars; and that the total of schools and scholars was as follows, viz.:— 10 1,2,391 towns, parishes, villages, and hamlets which possessed schools of some description, there were Sunday and daily SCHOOLSJ 10,152; Sunday- schools, 6,068; infant schools, 704 total 16,924. Sunday and daily schools with scholars, 514,450; Sunday-schools, ditto, 439,280 infant schools, ditto, 43,730; total, 996.4<iJ. Total places 12,391, with schools 16,924, and scholars 996,460 to which are to be added the union workhouse schools, and those in course of establishment by aid of the Parli- amentary granL-Bristol Paper. MR LABOUCHEKE'S WILL.-Tlie will of Mr Peter Caesar Labouchere, late of Hamilton-place, Piccadilly, London, has just been proved in the Pre- rogative Court, Doctors' Commons, by Mr Johu Baring, the third sou of Sir Thomas Baring, B^rt., and Mr Robert Robertson, the executors. The per- sonal estate has been proved under X300,000. Be- sides various legacies to relations the testator be- queaths the charitable bequests: To the church ot Writtle, in Essex, £500; to the church of Widford, Essex, £ 250; to the French Reformed church at Amsterdam, 3,000 guilders; to the Dutch Reformed church at Amsterdam, 3,000 guilders to the Eng- lish Episcopal church at Amsterdam 1,000 guilders; to the English Presbyterian Scotch church at Am- sterilam, 1,000 guilders; to the Synagogue of the German Jews at Amsterdam, 1,000 guilders to the Portuguese Jews at Amsterdam, 1,000 guilders. The whole of the above legacies are given in trust to the overseers and churchwardens of the respective parishes to which the churches belong, to be by them distributed amongst the poor of the said parishes. The whole of the above charitable be- quests, together with all the legacies and annuities under his will and codicils, are (jiven free and clear of the legacy duty. The deceased has died possessed offreehold property to a large amount. The QUEEN DOWAGER.-At a meeting of the Protestant inhabitants of- MALTA, held on the 5th instant, an Address was presented to Queen Adelaide, expressive of their sincere gratitude to, and high esteem for, her Majesty, for her most munificent jrift, to be appropriated to the erection of St. Paul's Church. To this Address her Majesty was pleased to return the following gracious reply :I thank the Protestant inhabitants of Malra for their affectionate address. NOTHING CAN he more gratify- ing to my feelings than to receive the testimony of their gratitude for a work (St. Faul s Church) which will give me so much real satisfaction to undertake. Although far distant when the sacred edifice shall be completed, I assure them that my piayers shall be offered up with theirs that St paullj Church may prove a blessingand aspiritual comfort to themselves, and their posterity." REPORT OF TITHE COMMISSIONERS. We present to the public another report of the Tithe Commissioners to Lord John Russell and would at the same time direct to it the attention of all who are in any way concerned in the matter. Whatever may be the future consequences of the Tithe Commutation Act on the welfare of the church which no human sagacity can, we believe, foresee, we think but little blame will attach to the agency generally by which it is effected. This report of the Commissioners is a very clear, sensible, and succinct statement of the progress and present condition of the commutation, and is so far satisfactory. Tithe Commission, Feb. 28. My Lord,-It is our duty to report to your Lord- ship the general progress of the commutation since May 1, 1838. We have now in the office S498 agreements, of which 2362 are confirmed. If it is assumed that those not confirmed comprise, on the average, tithe equal in amount to the average tithe in those'which have been confirmed, then tithe to the amount of f 1,312,102 17S. 4d. has been agreed to be commuted by voluntary arrangements. The com- mence nentofthe operation ofoul, compulsory powers has brought us necessarily into contact with more reluctant parties, and with difficulties which did not affect our previous operations. We are of opinion, however, that we have, on the whole, made a satisfactory commencement of the enforcement of these powers. Districts, in which tithes have generally been taken in kind, or let on annual valua., lions contain elements of struggle and irritation, from'which the rest of the country is free. Those districts are comparatively small; and, after a few cases in each have been patiently heard and carefully decided, we see ground for hoping, that voluntary agreements will, even in those districts, effect the greater part of the work of commutation. Our ex- perience has been sufficient to prove that, while voluntary agreements are made at the rate at which they are now coming in to us, the processes of ap- portionment consequent on these agreements, create at least as much, perhaps more employment, than can be proceeded with at once by such mappers and apportioned as have the confidence of the country. No exertions on our part will be wanting to hasten the completion of the apportionments; but still, under these circumstances, we think it prudent, un- less the progress of voluntary commutation should slacken, to confine our compulsory interference to four classes of selected cases, and we append to this report the circular* in which we have described these classes. The returns already presented to Parliament contain the statistical details of our pro- gress so fully, that we do not think it necessary to repeat them here. We have the honour to be 't-t. _4 _e: ('1.1'1.

PORTSMOUTH, MARCII IG.-LAUNCII OF A LINZ ov-BATTLE-SHip.rhe Indus, pierced for 78 gun, on the construction of Sir Robert Seppings, was launched yesterday morning, and, notwithstanding the unfavourable state of the weather, the crowds of persons to witness the sight was enormous, it being known for some time past that this noble ship was to be placed in her native element. Thousands of per- sons collected at the dock yard at an early hour, which being opened for the public, there was ap- parently no end to the rush of spectators anxious to get a sig it, and devising the best means to obtain the most advantageous post. Much credit is due to the officers of the dock-yard for the admirable and com- fortable arrangement of seats Precisely at half-past 11 she departed from the stocks, her abode of 16 years, amidst loud and deafening cheers. This splendid ship is teak built, on the model of the Christian theVWth; her dimensions are, extreme breadth 51 feet 2 inches; length on lower deck, 188 feet'4 inches; length of keel, 155 feet 4 inches; tonnage (new), 2068. When coppered (being im- mediately taken into dock for that purpose), she will, we regret to say, be placed inordinary. No accident whatever occurred. Amongst the numerous visitors we observed Capi aiii Sir Wm. Symtnonds, R.N the present Surveyor of the Navy.
