ORNAMENTAL BRICKS.-It is not generally known that all kinds of ornamental bricks may now be made without being subject to more than double duty. This information may conduce to the re- introduction of the ancient style of Brick-work, "Which contributed so much to the beauty of the architecture of Henry and Elizabeth. ALLOWANCE TO INSOLVENT DEBTORS.—By the 118th clause of the new act, it is enacted, after stating that the expenses of an insolvent applying to discharged under the act, may be paid, out of his estate and its effects, that if the same shall net be sufficient for that purpose, then that such expenses or any part thereof, may and shall, where the said court shall be satisfied that the prisoner has not the means of paying the same, be paid and advanced out of the interest and profit arising from any govern- ment securities upon which any unclaimed money produced by the estate and effects of insolvent debtors may be invested, and in every such last- mentioned case, the estate and effects of such prisoner, which may then, or may thereafter come to the hands and be vested in the provisional or other assignee or assignees, shall be liable, in the first place, to repay the money so advanced and paid." It is understood that a considerable sum, about 10,0001., has accumulated, but the court have held that the section has a prospective construction. An applicatiou was made a few days since by an inmate of Whitecross-street prison, named John Payne, to obtain an allowance. He set forth in his affidavit a case of great distress, and stated that bis attorney would not file his schedule unless he was paid Si. 10s. The Court requested corroborative proof; aud Mr Barrett, the governor, gave a certificate, whereupon the Court ordered the sum of bl, to be paid out of the 11 interest arising from unclaimed money." The Court will be enabled, under this provision, to assist destitute insolvents, as no inconsiderable sum will be available, arising from the large sum now invested of unclaimed money and dividends.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. STAMP WASHERS.—The French Government have offered a premium for the discovery of an indelible ink. Something of the kind seems to be wanted in this country, as the march of science is said to have made the practice of stamp washing very common. A process is known which will make stamps written on with common ink as clean as if they had never been used. In this way it has been supposed the revenue suffers to the amount of ^-lO^OO per annum, j The Minister of Justice and Public Worship has sent a circular to the archbishops and bishops, requir- ing the necessary information for the distribution of 150 new district churches in the different dioceses, for which a grant has been made in the budget for 1840.—Par in Paper. SPAIN. Affairs in Spain do not appear to be progressing quite so well for the Christino party as was naturally to have been anticipated from the retirement from the country of Don Carlos. The Quotidienne reports some not unimportant successes of Cabrera, and those who are acting under his orders; whilst Brigadier Berengera, who was sent by Marotto to tamper with Cabrero's troops, has been tried by court-martial, sentenced, and shot for his treachery, The guerillas also, (very troublesome opponents in the difficult country which is now the seat of the war,) are on the alert, and have attacked and pillaged the town of Loranca de Taja, within a short distance from Ma. drid. Among the atrocities committed during the last few days, is the assassination of the young and beau- tiful daughter of Palilloa, by the Christinos, at Ciudad Real (we have already stated that she was previously flogged in the public market place on her naked back, before thousands: of admiring spectators,) and the pillage and destruction of the town of Mayo, in Ca- talonia, by the Count d'Espagne. In fact the bar- barous mode of warfare which called forth the indig- nation of Europe two years ago has been revived in all its terrors. The hospitalities" which France knows how to afford "to an unfortunate prince" are still continued to Don Carlos; nor is his bondage to cease until Es- partero has gained such an advantage over Cabrera as is likely to lead to his ultimate submission. The excuse for his detention is, that he addressed letters to Cabrera, and the Count d'Espagne, entreating them to hold out to the last, adding what was the simple fact, that he had been conquered, not by the superior valour or number of Espaitero's troops, but by the atrocious treachery of Marotto It would have been wiser had he reserved these instructions until he had passed the confines of France, but, if his con- dact was imprudent, surely that of the Count d'Es- pagne, who published his letter in his General Orders, was still more so. It is not impossible that this decla- ration of his opinion may have been provoked by the misrepresentation of the French press, which has re- peatedly assured us that he had written to Cabrera to command him to lay down his arms. Meantime, there is nothing but dissension in the Spanish Cabinet; one party desiring one thing, and the other insisting upon its opposite. If the war be delayed until the spring, it is likely to last during the greater part of next year. The Count d' Espagne has 15,000 determined men in his train, and Cabrera about as many more. Altogether Queen Christina's affairs appear to be as far from settlement as ever. The Basque provinces are far from satisfied, and the Na- varrese are still on the qui vive, whilst the troops of Cabrera appear determined to hold their position to the last. The Sentinel Jes Pyrennets describes the measures taken by Cabrera for his defence as most masterly. He has caused all the roads to be inter- sected or barricaded with huge masses of stone for several miles round, so as to preclude the possibility of bringing up heavy artillery. Everything, consider- ing the great disparity of force, promises well for Cabrera, and a good deal of fighting. must take place before he can be reduced to subjection. The fueros law has passed the Chamber, with a mo- dification, which renders the concession a complete nullity; and so great is the authority of the Exaltados that the ministry is virtually dissolved by the resigna- tion of the Ministers of Marine and the Interior. INDIA. IMPORTANT NEWS.—Her Majesty's troops on the 21st of September arrived at Ghunzee. When with- in gun-shot it was received by a smart cannonade and a heavv fire of musquetry, after silencing which the army bivouacked. On the 2nd, preparations were made for assaulting the town, and the attack on it commenced a few minutes before three o'clock on the ensuing morning. The gates were blown in by the engineers, and the trumpets having sounded a charge, the artillery opened a terrible fire, under cover of which the infantry forced an entrance in spite of the most determined resistance, and by five o'clock the colours of her Majesty's 13th and 17th Regiments floated over the citadel of Ghunzee. Thus one of the strongest fortifications in Asia, defended by a force of 3500 of the elite of the Afghan troops, commanded by the son of the ex-King of Cabool, was reduced in two hours, 500 of the besieged having been killed, and 300 made prisoners. The entire loss of our troops did not exceed 191 men put hors de combat. RESOURCES OF INDIA —It is a curious fact that at the present moment, although this country has pos- sessed India for so many years, we know scarcely anything of its productions and capabilities. Thou- sands of gallons of linseed-oil have been sent an- nually to India, whilst millions of pounds of the seeds of linseed were rotting throughout the country. There are not less than fifty species of plants from which we might obtain caoutchouc, though as yet we have imported but little from India. THE EAST. The consequences which we apprehended would result from any attempt to employ force against Mehemet Ali, will, it seems, inevitably ensue from such a course. We allude to the stoppage of our overland communication with India. The incon- venience which England will sustain from such an impediment would be very great. The knowledge of this fact, and the vacillating and temporising policy of the Five Powers, have tended to render Mehemet more obstinate than ever. He will neither abandon any one of his territorial acquisitions, nor restore the Turkish fleet, relying wholly on the want of union among the Allied Powers, and the secret promises of countenance which he is said to have received from more than one of them.

The assembly of the Roman Catholic Bishops in Cork on Sunday week, for the purpose of consecrating the new Dominican chapel of St. Mary in that city, caused great sensation throughout the country, and attracted a very numerous attendance, not only of Roman Ca- tholics, but also of Protestants. The ceremonies usually observed upon such occasions were com- menced and gone through with great pomp, and the whole of the proceedings were conducted upon a scale of unusual grandeur and extent. The sermon upon the occasion of the consecration was preached by the Rev. Dr. Crolly, the Roman Catholic Primate, the chapel being crowded to excess, and the greatest in- terest manifested to witness the ceremony. On the following day an address was presented by a deputa- tion of citizens of Cork to the Rev. Dr. Crolly and the other Bishops present. The dinner in the evening Was provided in the room of the Chamber of Com- merce, which was thronged to inconvenience; Mr O'Connell presiding, supported by the Rev. Dr. Crolly and nine other Bishops. A large number of the in- foxiox clergy, and of the commercial men of the city were likewise present; and a number of toasts were proposed from the chair upon the occasion. The Rev. Dr. Crolly returned thanks for the honour conferred upon himself and brethren, and in the course of a lengthened address congratulated the company upon the appointment of Roman Catholics to situations in the Government, and upon the selection of an impar- tial Board of Education to superintend the instruction of the poor. He concluded by proposing the health of their beloved and respected Liberator, the Pacifi- cator of his country, Daniel O'Connell." The toasj was received with long-continued cheering.—Mr O'Connell, in returning thanks, attached the state- ments of Dr. O'Sullivan, and defended the recent Roman Catholic appointments. He urged the people to renewed energy at the registries, declaring his as- surance that the clergy would lead them on, and con- cluded by staling that, old as he was, he was prepared for many future years of struggle. He then proposed "Old Ireland as she ought to be." -\Ir O'Connel afterwards declared himself a ministerialist in the House of Commons, for whatever might be said of the Ministers they were the friends of Ireland.—Several other toasts having been given, the company separated. IT COSTS £ 12,000 :a-yeat more to maintain the peace in the counties of Cork, Tipperary, and Limerick, each of which is under Popish influence, than is expended for the same purpose in the nine counties of Protestant Ulster, although their popula- tion exceeds that of Cork, Tipperary, and Limerick by a million souls.
Glamorgan, HHo-itmoutf), k lirecoit Caliette, AND MERTHYR GUARDIAN. MERTHYR TYDVIL, AND BRECON, Nov. 2, 1839. A case which is briefly reported to-day under the head of "Merthyr Police," seems to render it advisable that the law relating to the breaking of machinery should be clearly and distinctly stated; more especially as in this instance Mr Alderman THOMPSON has humanely declined proceeding against the delinquents on the graver charge, which wotildtave subjected the parties, on conviction, to seven years' transporta- tion; his object being to make such an example as might deter others from the like mal-prac- tices which as the lads implicated were gene- rally of tender age, he hoped might be accom- plished by a salutary visit to the treadmill, instead of transportation. By the stat. 7 and 8 Geo. 4. c. 30. s. 4, it is enacted, That if any person shall unlawfully and maliciously cut, break, or destroy, or damage with intent to destroy or to render useless, any threshing machine or any machine or engine, whether fixed or move- able, prepared for or employed in any manufacture whatsoever, (except the manufacture of silk, wool- en, linen, or cotton goods, or goods of any one or more of those materials, mixed with each other, or mixed with any other material, or any framework- knitted piece, stocking, hose, or lace), every such offender shall be guilty of felony, and being con- victed thereof shall be liable, at the discretion of the Court, to be transported beyond the seas for the term of seven years, or to be imprisoned for any term not exceeding two years and, if a male, to be once, twice, or thrice publicly or privately whipped (if the Court should think fit) in addition to such imprisonment. The only technical doubt which we are aware of, that could possibly be raised, in the present instance, was as to whether the lads could really ha etxid to hivo been influenced by malicious motives. Of the unlawfulness there could be no question the effects of this mischievous freak of the idle lads being not only the breaking of some parts of the machinery, and the straining of others, but also compelling a total suspension of work at that particular rolling mill for several hours. Under these circumstances we conceive the PENYDARKBN COMPANY would have been perfectly justified in calling upon the Magis- trates to send the prisoners before a jury; and the parents of the children may thank Alderman THOMPSON for his leniency, in requesting that the proceedings might be taken under the fol- lowing clause of the petty trespass act; by which it is enacted- "tThat if any person shall unlawfully and maliciously cut, break, throw down, or in anywise destroy, any fence of any :description whatsoever, or any wall, stile, or gate, or any part thereof, respectively, every such offender, being convicted before a justice of the peace, shall, for the first offence, forfeit and pay, over and above the amount of the injury done, such sum of money, not exceeding five pounds, as to the justice shall seem meet; and if any person so con- victed shall afterwards. be guilty of any of the said offences, and shall be convicted thereof in like man- ner, every such offender shall be committed to the common gaol or house of correction, there to be kept to hard labour for such term, not exceeding twelve calendar months, as the convicting justice shall think fit; and if such subsequent conviction shall take place before two justices, they may further order the offender, if a male, to be once or twice publicly or privately whipped, after the expiration of four days from the time of such conviction." We trust that both the example which has been made of Evan Thomas, and the humane conduct of the worthy Alderman, will have the effect of putting a stop to these mischievous practices. Should any similar case arise, the culprits can hardly expect a repitition of such leniency at the hands of their employers.
The system of discouragingProtestants,which forms, in fact, the leading feature of Lord Mel- bourne's government, has been carried out to its fullest extent by Lord Palmerston abroad. British missionaries in Spain, who may attempt to do their Master's bidding, are, it seems, to be subjected to imprisonment and expulsion from the country; nay, they may render themselves liable to death and confiscation of property if they are found guilty of the abominable heresy of preaching, or distributing Bibles among the benighted inhabitants of that country. The Christian religion is henceforward to be pro- scribed in all countries under the ban of Popish dominion; the British soldier and sailor is to be called upon to take part in the idolatrous ceremonies of Popery, to prostrate themselves before the consecrated wafer as it passes them but the Christian missionary is not to be per- mitted to perform the duties of his calling, lest he should offend the prejudices of Popery.- Standard.

This legacy to a minister of the Crown for the faiihUl discharge of his public duties is perhaps without a precedent in by-gone times.

After 40 years spent in the service of the country, and having received the thanks of the different India governments, he returned to his native land. The will is dated on the 18th of June in the present year. THANK GOD WE HAVE A HonsE OF LORDS !—The whole, or nearly the whole legislative power, is transferred from the lower to the upper house.

NEW CHURCHES.—W ithin the last fortnight two new churches have received episcopal sanction at the hands of the Lord Bishop of Bath and Wells, One at Stroud, the other at Horsley. These new churches afford room for nearly 2000 persons, and are the first fruits of the Glocester and Bristol Diocesan Church Building Association, which owes its origin to the Right Rev. Prelate who so ably presides over this Ecclesiastical district. CHURCH EXTENSION.—At a special meeting of the Church Building Committee on Tuesday last, held in !his city, among other business transacted, the follow- ing grants were voted, each of which has since been confirmed by the Lord Bishop ot the diocese, viz.- tioo towards enlarging the church ot Chelmsham, in Surrey; £ 3-25 towards re pewing Basmgstoke Church, by which nearly 600 additional sittings will be gained, of which 325 will be free; and f 200 to the new church of Beaulieu Royals, in the parish of Boldre, for a. population of 700, distant four miles from the parish church. To this last case the society had before voted X400, but in consequence of four new churches having been lately erected in the same neighbourhood, the local resources had been ex- hausted and this church, though built nearly 12 months ago, could not be opened because a consider- able balance remained to be supplied on the joint fund for building and endowment. The committee, therefore, voted an additional sum of £ 200, making their whole grant f600, which will go so far towards meeting the existing deficiency as to admit of the almost immediate consecration of the church.— Hamp- thire Chronicle,

Forasmuch as Almightie God hath in all ages showed his power and mercy in the miraculous and gracious deliverance of his Church, and in the pro- tection of religious Kings and States, And that no nacion of the earth hath bene blessed with greater benefitts than this kingdome now enjoyelh, having the true and free profession of the Gospell under our moste gracious Sovereign Lorde Kinge James, the most great, learned, and religious Kinge that ever reigned therein, enriched with a most hopefuil and plentifull progenie proceeding out of his royal loynes, promysing continunnce of this happiness and profes- sion to all posteritie the which many malignant and deveiishe Papists, Jesuits, and Seinynarie priests muche envying and fearing conspired most horribliee when the King's most Excellent Majestie, the Queene, the Prince, and all the Lords Spiritual! and Temporal and Comons should have been assembled in the upper Howse of Parliamente uppon the fifte day of Novem- ber in the yeere of our Lord 1605, suddenly to have blowen up the saide whole howse with gunpowder; an invention soe inhumane, barbarous, and email, as the like was never before heard of, and was (as some of the principall conspirators thereof confesse) pur- posely devised and concluded to be done in the saide howse, that where sundrie necessarie and religious lawes for preservacion of the Church and State were made, which they falsely and slanderously terme cruell lawes enacted against them and theire religion, both place and persons should be all destroyed and blowen upp at once, which would have turned to the utter ruin of this whole kingdome had it not pleased Almighty God, by inspiring the King's Most Excel- lent Majesty with » Divine spiritt to interpret some darke phrases of a letter shdfei to his Majesty above and beyond all ordinary construction, thereby miracu- lously discovering this hidden treason not many howres before the appointed tyme for the execution thereof: therefore the King's most Excellent Majestie, the- Lordes Spirituall and Temporall, and all his Ma- jestie's faithfull and lovinge subjects doe most justly acknowledge this greate and infinite blessing to have preceeded merely from God his great mercy, and to his most holy name doe ascribe all the honour, glory, and praise. And to the end this unfeigned thank- fullness may never be forgotten, but be had in a per- petual remembrance, that all ages to come may yeeld praises to his Divine Majestie for the same, and have in memory this joyful day of deliverance Be it therefore enacted by the King's Most Ex- cellent Majestie, the Lordes Spiritual and Temporall and the Comons in the present Parliament assembled and by the authority of the same, that all and singuler Ministers in every Cathedrall and Parisbe Churche, or other usual! place for comon prayer within this real me of England, and the dominions of the same, shall alwaies uppon the fifte day of November say morninge prayer, and give up to Almightie God thanks for this most happy deliverance. And that all and every person and persons inhabiting within this realme of England and the dominions of the same, alwaies shall uppon that day dilengently and faithfully resort to the parishe churche or chapell accustomed, or to some usuall churche or chapell where the said morn- ing prayer, preaching or other service of God shall be used, and then and there abide orderly and soberly during the tyme of the saide prayers preaching or other service of God there to be used and ministred. And because and everie person may be put in mynde of this duety and be the better prepared to the said holy service, be it enacted by authority afore- al I said, that everie minister shall give warning to his parishioners publicly in the churche at morning prayer the Sunday before everie such fift day of No- vember, for the due observation of the said day. And that after morning prayer or preaching upon the said fifte day of November they read publikely, distinctly, and playnlie this present act." How enormous the guilt of the Church of Rome in her attempts to obtain universal domination over the conscience! how cruel the tortures inflicted by her on those who, at the sound of the sack but and psaltery, would not bow down to the golden image which she had set up, or receive for doctrines the commandments of men, or admit as infallible her in- terpretations of the Word of God How deep our debt of obligation to those martyrs who, having sacri- ficed all for her truth's sake, witnessed at the stake a good confession and by their uncompromising stead- fastness, and their bold avowal of the pure doctrines of the iGospel, were the instruments in the hands of a gracious God of emancipating our forefathers from the thraldom of Popery, and dissipating that gross darkness, in which forages our country had been en- veloped!

Ci.rvR, M.P., has given the liberal donation of 9100. to the Hereford Church Building Society. OBSERVANCE OF THE SABBATH. IT^ is gratifying to find that the efforts of the friends of the Sabbatti cause have been successful in putting a shop to Sun- day labour on the Liverpool and Leeds Canal. A lay agent is employed in instructing the boatmen, and much good, under the Divine blessing, is the result. At a meeting held in Bishopwearmouth church ves- try, on Monday last, by some of the gentlemen inte- rested in the welfare of the populous neighbourhood of Deptford, Pallion, and Ayres Quay, the sum of 601. was subscribed by such as were present towards building a chapel at Ueptford. in a central situation, and we hear that further subscriptions have since been promised.- Durham Advertiser. THE MARQUIS OF GRANBY and Sir G. Clerk have refused to subscribe any further towards the Stamford Bluecoat School, as has the Marqim of Exeter. The reason assig led for withdrawing their aid to this I charity is, that charity trustees, appointed by the Lord Chancellor, have refused to allow the children to be educated in the tenets of the Church of England, I and have forbidden the use of the Church Catechism intheschool. A SPLENDID PIECE OF PLATE, consisting of a candelabrum of solid silver,and weighing200 ounces, was on Friday week presented to the Rev. Robert Downes, M.A., by the inhabitants of Leamington Priors, Warwickshire, in testimony of the faithful services during the 18 years the Rev. Gentleman officiated as curate and vicar of that parish. Mr Downes is now Rector of Fetcbam, in Surrey. We have heard, with deep regret, that the Bishop of this Diocese has appointed a rank Puseyite, in the person of the Rev. ill r. Keebles: curate at Pisley, to the Head Mastership of the Training School at Glou- cester, belonging to the Diocesan Board of Education A more injurious proceeding than this could not well be conceived, or one more calculated to alienate a majority of the most efficient supporters of the system; and we are convinced, many ot the most zealous of our Clergy will feel bound in conscience to withdraw their countenance from Schools, exposed to the anti- Scriptural influence which this appointment will fos- ter and extend. We hope it is not yet too late for this false step to be retrieved, and would implore his Lordship to re-consider a measure fraught with many and great evils to the Church and Heligion.-Cltel- tenham Chronicle. THE REV. JOSIAH JAMES, M.A, has been institu- ted by the Lord Bislioprof Hereford to the Rectory of Dore Abbey, vacant by the death of the Rev. J. Duncumb. A GOOD EXAMPLE.—Mrs Price, relict of the late Thos. Price, Esq., of the Strand, Builth, has lately persented the Vicar and Churchwardens of the parish church in that town, with a handsome silver paten and chalice, executed by Messrs Taylor and Son, of Bristol, for the holy communion; with a very ap- propriate inscription thereon, expressive of the pur- pose intended, viz., for the use of the communicants of the parish of Lanvair in Builth, for ever. A Subscription has been set on foot for the purpose of re-casting one of the old bells and supplying two new ones in the belfry of Saint Mary Magdalane's church, Taunton. The estimated expense is X130 towards which nearly flOOhas been already sub- scribed. MUNIFICENT DONATION TO THE GENERAL As. SEMBLY'S INDIA MISSION.—On the 4th of July last, a collection, amounting to £ 5., was made in the parish church of Duncore in aid of the General Assembly's Schools and in the same place, on the 29th ult., alter a very lucid and impressive sermons by the Rev. Dr. Gordon, of Edinburgh, another collection was made for the General Assembly's foreign missions, when the liberal sum r>C £ 7., exclusive of the ordinary collection for the poor, was realised. We have great pleasure in being able to add, that the Minister of the parish received a letter, at the same time, from Mrs. Crich- ton, of Friars* Carse, announcing that the trustees of her late husband had resolved to appropriate, to this most pious object, the munificent donation of £ 1000., to be paid next Whitsunday. We understand that it is Mrs. Crichton's earnest wish that this money should be applied for the formation of three bursaries to yield a permanent fund for educating native preachers, to be called the Crichton Scholarship. This will add another to the many beneficent charities to which the late Dr. Crichton's fortune has given birth. —Dumfries Herald* A it Act to make better provision for the assignment of Ecclesiastical Districts to Churches or Chapels augmented by the governors of thR Bounty of Que ell Anne; and for other purposes.—[17th August 1839.] Sec. 1.

MARCARET'S CHURCH, YORK.—This venera- ble place of worship has just been undergoing consi 1 derable and important repairs and improvements, by which 180 new (rittings have been obtained, 150 of them being free. The expences have amounted to nearly £500, towards which a large sum has been liberally contributed, amounting to t426 6s and in- cluding the munificent donation of £200 from the Rev. George Coopland, the rector. When the Corporation Reform Bill was under dis- cussion by the legislature, it was remarked and generally admitted that church property ought not to be intrusted to the management of Dissenters and in accordance with this feeling a clause was introduced by which the new corporators were denied the right to present to livings heretofore in the gift of their pre- decessors. By an unfortunate omission, however, no such limitation was applied to the powers of the trustees of charity estates, and in consequence there is daily exhibited the mischievous anomaly of Dissen- ters distributing funds intended for the promotion of the interests of a Church which they earnestly desire to overthrow, and the efficiency of which they are not therefore likely to promote. For example, in Boston, one trustee, a virulent enemy of the Church, is striving by every means in his power, to withhold from the chapel of ease an annual payment which is guaran- teed by act of parliament, and also to deprive the church organist of a small salary which has been paid to him for some years out of the charity funds. Surely parliament will, early in the next session, apply a remedy to so glaring an evil, and transfer to the hands of friends those powers which the enemies of the Church employ against instead of for her.-Bas ton Herald. CLERICAL COSTUME.—A correspondent of the St. James's Chronicle recommends a more distinctive dress for the Established Clergy as indispensable, for," says he, it is almost impossible to recognise a Clergyman in general society by his apparel, and hence I am convinced, a vast influence over the tone of conversation and the pursuits of society, which the Clergy would otherwise have, is lost." He goes on to advise the adoption of" the cltrical hat" as recom- mended by the Bishop of London to his Clergy; "since," says the writer, the use of it would tend to banish the black neckcloth and light coloured trousers now so generally worn by the Clergy, and which confound them with military men, and even with ihoptiien.We entirely agree with the sugges- tions of the correspondent." Nothing entails con- tempt upon the Clergy so surely and so decidedly as an appearance on their parts of wishing to be mis- taken for laymen. Nothing more deservedly so. HER. MAJESTY'S Royal visitors still remain at the Castle. A review which was to have taken place in the Park, and which had been delayed on account of the weather, is postponed sine die. ASYLUM FOR THE BUND—We understand that her Majesty the Queen having lately seen one of the Berlin wool shawls knitted by the females of this in- stitution, has been graciously pleased to order three of them they are now finished, and, by the beauty and regularity of the manufacture, reflect much credit on the matron and her blind pupils.-E(lin- burgh Advertiser. Lord Fortescae, in consequence of advanced age, has resigned the Lord Lieutenancy and Vice Ad miralship of the county of Devon, and Lord Ebring- ton, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, is appointed his successor in both offices. PENNY POSTAGE.-ÎVJ ore than two thousand pro- posals from parties competing for the supply of stamps, by a superior method, to be used for the collection of postage, are now lying before the Lords of the Treasury. We are happy to learn that the last accounts from Canada are more favourable as to the prospects of the ensuing winter. With a force of 15,000 British troops, little apprehension need be entertained. Mr Poulett Thomson's appointment had, however, occasioned great dissatisfaction, which was increaaed by a report that he intended to fix his head-quarters at Montreal, instead of Quebec*—Brighton Gazette*

CELEBRATION OF THE WESLEYAN CENTENARY AT ( SWANSEA.—Yesterday week being one hundred years since Mr. Wesley met his first class, that day was by the Wesleyans set apart for Religions Worship. And on Monday afterQVon last, the children attending School at their chapel were plentifully provided with cake and tea, and each child presented with a very neat medal suspended from the neck by white ribbon. On the obverse side of the Medal was the representa- tion of Mr. John Wesley, and on the reverse that of Mr. Charles Wesley. In the evening the Members of that persuasion with several of the congregation, to the number of about 400, took tea together at the flifatit Sctjool-rooin, where several excellent speeches were delivered on the occasion by the Rev. Paul Orchard, the English Minister, and the Rev. William Evans, the Welsh Minister also by Messrs. Beynon, Morgan, Hiley, and others. Mr. John Beynon pre- sented the English Minister with a very handsome silver medal; and Mr. Watkin Morgan, presented another to the Welsh Minister; each of the value of sixteen shillings. DEATH OF MR THOMAS WILLIAMS, OF THE EAGLE ACADEMY, COWBRIDGE. (Communicated by Ab Iolo.) This much and deservedly respected Preceptor, who, for so many years, assiduously filled the duties of his arduous and perplexing avocation, died on the 24th ult., aged 78. He commenced his course of tui- tion at an unusually early period of life; and continued, with undeviating integrity, to discharge its obliga- tions, till about 1S10, when the infirmities arising from a weak constitution, sadly shattered by the ravages of the small pox, warned him to retire from the unavoidable exertions attendant on his establish- ment, which he relinquished, in easy circumstances, in favour of his nephew, Mr Thomas Rhys, who still continues to conduct that respectable academy. From childhood to lengthened age, the serene equa- nimity of a placid temper, the unsophisticated de- meanour of mental purity, and the sincere scrupulosity of moral rectitude distinguished his sterling charac- ter.— He was "an Israelite indeed, in whom there was no guile-" He evinced a correct judgment in rejecting, at his outset in life, the old routine of inefficient modes of instruction, and introducing a system of considerable improvement. Ever conscientiously anxious to pro- mote the welfare of his pupils, he selected for tlte-ir use the works of modern authors on education j and his strict adherence to the order adopted by him knew no interruption. Even his circumscribed ^evening' leisure, and his walks of recreation, were applied to the progress of his scholars ;-for on those occurrences they either occasionally read to him, or profited by his instructive remarks, and salutary advice. He was a strict disciplinarian ;-but his correction were never augmented by passion: it was the pare conviction of the necessity of restraint on unexperi- enced youth that governed his coercive measures; being thoroughly convinced that minds acquire their varied modifications from the impressions received in the plastie period of early existence. It was good conduct alone that secured his partiality for ho knew no sinister motive. He was a temperate man in the strictest sense, and punctual in his habits, even, sometimes, to eccen- tricity: and so domestic were his predilections, that he rarely travelled twelve miles from his own fire- side but the many thousands whom he educated have variously visited all the known regions of our globe. His particular friends were rather limited andsdect; although his general acquaintances were necessarily nurflerous, from the public repute of his school. One of his most intimate companions was the lato Bard, Edward Williams, (I olo Morganwg), who rarely went to Cowbridge, without seeking his conversation-, I11 abstemious habits, and rectitude of conduct, they were alike, and other instances of their parallel dii positions might be added;—but, in peculiarity temper, they differed considerably.—'The Preceptor was communicative, inquiring, and dispassiomte; while the more impetuous Bard, whose powerful and well stored mind was also freely developed, would fre- quently overstep the pale of worldly prudence, in his ardent strictures on men and manners and the warm originality of his observations not unfrequently sti- mulated the innate serenity of his respected friend to smiles of rather (to him) unusual cheerfulness. They are bothg oneand the places that knew them shall know them no more." The length of days he attained additionally verifies the divine promise to those who «' Honourtbeir father and their mother,"—for his filial duty was exemplary. When, some years ago, a piece of plate was prpw sented to Dr. Williams, of the Classic Free School of Cowbridge, as a testimony of the high respeca in which he has been so deservedly held by his Ipi and the country, through a long period of efficient in- struction m the higher branches of education Will. Thomas, Esq., the worthy acting Magistrate of Mer- thyr, intimated a wish that a similar token of raIId should he paid to his respected tutor, whose death,. although ill the fulness of years, we now deplore; and a ready concurrence in the creditable intention was; expressed here; but, too: frequciitly tiie certainty oti. attaining the desired object induces a degree of pro- crastination that supplants exertion r—So it was ini this case.—The propriety of electing a tablet, to the. memory of this esteemed man. by public subscription, among his former scholars, is now respectfully sug- gested. This imperfect notice ofa worthy Preceptor is pre. sented, iu grateful remembrance, by one of his oldJ pupils. .## SWANSEA TICKRTT.ING PAPER. To the Editor ef the Mining Journal. SIR,—Being a subscriber to the Mining Journtd as also having a trifling interest in the L,acfcanior(.' I ra Copper Mine, in the county of Tipperary, tbe property of the Karl of Stadbroke, I take leave to suggest two or three matters, the introduction of which into your paper would be satisfactory to its readers, and an advantage to the mining interests in Ireland. The- produce of the different piretils of ore sold at Swansea; is omitted, as also the average produee and average- standard of the entire sales; neither can I find ono- line or figure in the whole paper from which it can bw known whether the standard is falling or rising, or, itu other words, whether oro of the same produce soldi better the last sale or the one previous. Merely in- troducing into your Jo>uirnal whether the standaiti .11' ore, the same produce as last sale, had improved or declined, and to wliAt extent, would answer all the- purposes, and might prevent improvident shipments- to a falling market. I have heard many of your sub- scribers complain of want of information on the above- subjects, which leaves them to vague calculations, by a multiplicity of figures, which scao of us can under- stand, as to whether standard or copper ore is rising on falling.
