Carnarvonshire Quarter Sessions. ( Concluded from our last). Mary Jones, who had pleaded guilty to stealing half-a-crown and a silk handkerchief at Llanor, as reported in our last, was ordered to be kept in prison to hard labour for twelve calendar months. Aim Williams, the particeps crimiiiis in several of the pre- ceding cases, pleaded not guilty to a bill charging her with stea ing some cotton, the property of Mr. Roberts, Palace- street, Carnarvon, but afterwards withdrew her plea. The pro- secutor strongly recotn;nendv:d her to the i-ner,!v of the Court on account of her illness during her confinement, and her wil- lingness to further the ends of justice in the cas6 of her accom- plices in crime. She was duly admonished by the Court, and ordered to be fined Is. and discharged. Margaret Parry, spinuer, Henry Richirds, John Parry, Hugh Parry, William Rhys, RJbert Dmiel, William Daniel, and Richard Roberts were indicted at the suit of the Crown for a riot and assault. Mr. Wm. Lloyd Roberts stated that the defendants, who I resided at Morfa Bychan, near Tre' Madoc, stood indicted for a not and assault upon the under-sheriff and bAilifls in the ex- ecution of their duty. Mr. Ormsby Gore had at the last assizes for this county obtained a verdict against the defendant, Henry Richards, in an action of ejectment, and that his clerk had, in company with Mr. Rumsey William"s clerk, who was Mr. Gore's attorney, gone over to Morfa Bychan, in October last, to eject the parties by virtue of a writ of possession and upon that occasion the defendants tiimuhuously assembled together and had committed the most outrageous riot, which would be detailed in evidence before them. Richard Williams, Hugh Williams, Thomas Davies, Benja- min Owen, and Owen Williams were called and proved the riot. The chairman summed up the evidence very minutely, and the jury found the defendants guilty. Sentence-a fine of 20s. j upon each of the defendants. This closed the criminal business of the session. The atteii- 'é., tion of the Court was occupied during several hours by cases of affiliation, which were, we regret to slate, conducted in a manner little calculated to improve the moral feelings of the bystanders. An application was made to the Court, by Mr. Robert Wil- liams, solicitor,for leave to alter the Petit Jury Room, for the accommodation of the Board of Guardians but it was referred to future consideration, it being the opinion of the Bench that the Deputy Sheriff ought to be duly consulted. The routine business of the Court being completed, Mr. George, the gaoler, presented to the lieftch copies of the year's prison expenditure, the pecuniary statements of which fully bear out the commendations made at the opening of the session by the worthy chairman.
IVIerionetlisliire Quarter Sessions. These Sessions were held at ILtla, on the 4th in-tant, before Ldmund Lloyd, Esq., Chairman, and a full bench of magis- ♦ rates, among whom were R. W. Price, Esq., W. W. E. k Wynn, Eoq" Samuel Evans, Esq., Rev. John Wynn, J. Jones, and J. Passingham, Capt. L. O. Edwards, was also 1.1 requalified at these Sessions. There were onlv two prisrners for trial, Grace Jones and Jane D ivies, who were indicted for stealing a sack, of the value of I Is.. 1\1r. Gilberston appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. J. Jones, for the defence. The evidence was that of possession r of the proprrty, and the defence, that the sack had been picked upon the ground. The. jury found both prisoneri guilty, and the court sentenced them to fourteen days' imprisonment at Rrlla house of correction. ) There was but one appeal, and that seemed to excite very I considerable interest. Mr. James Hughes, of Aberystwyth, I and Messrs. Horne and Evans, of Denbigh, being specially re- tained on behalf of the contending parties, the former for the overseer, the two latter gentlemen, with Mr. Lloyd, for the appellant. It was an appeal, by Richard J homas, against the accounts of the overseer of the parish of Maentwrog, Mer- i; ionethshire. It appeared that Mr. John Lloyd, of Penyglane, I for some time past had several disputes and differences with I the parish of Maentwrog; and in the month of May last, he J appealed against the por,r rate assessment of that parish, on, (as was contended, harrassing and frivolous grounds, however, r the overseers did not think proper to defend the rate, and Mr. Lloyd succeeded in quashing it, with taxed costs those costs had bfcen taxed by Mr. Jones Williams, the Clerk of the Peace, I at 611. odd, and paid by the overseers; and Mr. Lloyd now objected to the allowance uf that sum so paid to himself by the overseers, contending that they had paid in th' ir own wrong, and that by law it could not be defrayed out of the rates, I There was ano'het item of 31. paid to a poor widow, which I Mr. Lloyd objected to as having been due in the year prior to the appointment of the last over seer, and contended, therefore, that the present one had no right to pfy it. There were two or three other items for rent, which Mr. Lloyd objected to as being illegal, and contrary to the rules and regulations of the Poor Law Commissioners. Mr. Hughes addressed the court at considerable length, in a most eloquent speech, wherein he implored the bench not to forget who the real appellants was it, this shameful appeal. It was not, he said, the wretched Richard Thomas, whose name appeared upon the record, No f It was a member of the distinguished bar of Mcrwne.hshire. ;i He is, said Mr. Hughes, emphatically, one of us, in vulgar j phraseology, one of the devil's own and, indeed, we might call him ihe devil's prime seigeant." After commenting very strongly upon Mr. Lloyd's conduct in the business of Mr. Hughes, he concluded by expressing his confidence that the Justices would not quash the accounts on the mere echnical grounds insisted on by his opponents, but would do substantial justice between the parties, and confirm the accounts which had already been allowed by two highly respectable members of the h, nch. Mr. Kvans, of Denbigh, addressed the court in reply, and very warmly defended Mi. Lloyd's conduct; lIe then called 1\1 r. Lloyd as a witness, ivho deposed that the bill of costs in the former appeal was necessarily incurred by him, and that he did not receive any intimation of the inten- te tion of the overseer not to defend the rate until he came IR5 into court, when their then attorney, Mr. Gilberston, stated f that he could not support the rate. He also stated that the w~ parishioners had requested to know upon what terms he wvuld settle all disputes between them, that the witness then drew an agreement containing those terms, amongst which was the making of a road leading by witness's house; that such agreement was sign: d by a great number of the parishioners making of a road leading by witness's house; that such agreement was sign: d by a great number of the parishioners and he agreed, upon the terms mentioned in that agreement, to abandon the appeal, and drop all other differences but that the overseer, as he believed, refused to abide by iI, and there- fore this appeal went oil W. W. Jones, Auditor of Bala and other Unions, was then called to prove that payment of rent was illeg:.l, which closed the Mr. Hughes replied, and complained much of the liability of the Clerk of the Peace, for allowing IVI F. Lloyd so much of costs, when 110 said that in this very appeal, at the last Quarter Sessions, at Dolgrlley, he nad taxed his, Mr. Hughes's bill, for attending at those Sessions, from 301. odd, to 51, 18s" which did not pay his expenses out of pocket. The court retired to their private room, and in a short time returned, when the Chairman announced that they were unani- mously of opinion that the appeal be disallowed with taxed costs. It is understood that the whole proceedings will be imme- diately removed to th„ Queen's Bench, and that this decision will be overuled. v Attorney for appellant, Mr. John Lloyd, Bala advocates, Mr. James Vaughan HoruV,, and Air. J. Evens. For the parish, lvlr. James Hughes, of Aberystwyth. The couit then proceeded with roatine business, which was a little delayed for want of the act of parliament, lately passed, regulating coroners' fees. to be referred to en a discussion arising out of the coroners' bill. It appears that the niagu- tiates of this county are so careful of the county purse, as of late 10 decline paying the tiiBing accustomed sum, we believe, of 15i. per quarter, which was paid for many years for carry- ing the statutes at large, and other law books belonging to the county, for the use of the Sessions, from Dolgellcy to Bala, and they prefer trusting to the caparity of their own heads, to contain the statutes at large, rather than waste the enormous sum of 15s. per quarter of the county money, for carriage of what such sapient Judges are so little in need of. Verily, we think that such misplaced economy had better be divided to the numerous instances of unwarrantable expenditure of the county money to the tune of some hundreds of pounds, that is [ notoriously known to exist in this county. U Mr. Gilberston moved for payment of a bill due to a con- -tractor for county work, and an order was made that in future *1 such m tions are useless, and be disallowed, as entailing too J great and unjustifiable expense "Upon the county. The f,.e for i motion was 5s. He also applied for he costs in a prose- fj cution, instituted some two or ihne quar ers ago, by the direc- 7 tions of the trustees of Lord Ward, against one of his wood • men, for embezzlement of money entrusted to him. It ap- 1 peared that Mr. R.'W. Price had admitted the accmsed to bail; but as the act of■ parliament required two magistrates to take the recognizanre, such document could not be enforced 1 against the principal or bail, for disobeying its conditions. The I' accused, of course,did not appear to take his trial, and he and 7 the bail became scotfree; it was, therefore, considered a great hardship by the prosecutors that they should, owing to no fault their s, be obliged to pay costs, and not have the offender > punished. The court declined granting cnsts, saying that a t' person who could so well afford to pay as Lord Ward ought to do so, and not put the county to expense. Mr. Gilberston -state,d that he had been informed that the court had granted ,costs in a case tinder similarcircumstances to Sir R. V,, ghID. Mr. Lloyd, the chairman, said he had no recollection of it,and -that he would not now consent to do wrong if he had done ■- before. I Since writing the above, we had been informed that Captain Edwards, although he requalified at Bala, and there is great need of his service in the Dolgelhy dtstnet, declined to act on Tuesday last, at the weekly petty sessions, for some reason best known to himself, although conjectured by some of his neigh- ?bours. Attorneys present:—Dolgclley, Mr. J. Jones Williams, Clerk of,the Peacc; Mr John Jones, Bala; Mr. John Lloyd, andmr. Gilberston. Denbigh, Mr. Home and Mr. T. Evans. Aberystwyth, Mr. James Hughes.
The members of the parish church of L!nnflhrll1gel-nr. f Arth have lately presented the Rev. Enoch James, vicar of Llaodvssil, Cardiganshire, with a fine copy of Scott's Bible. in testimony of the high estimation in which he is held by them as their pastor, after a faithful and efficient discharge' of his ministerial duties among them for upwards of twenty years. — Cambrian. An inquest was held on Wednesday last at the Crown Inn, Swansea, on the body of a man which was washed on shore near the Adelaide Fort, adjoining Pembroke dock- yard. His body had the appearance of having been some weeks in the water. By his dress it is concluded he was of the frencb nation he bad on a pair of blue trowsers, long drawers, fine Gurnsey jacket, and a blue shirt, fas- tened in front with pearl buttons, on which was cut the jieiir tie lis; and in his pockets were on nil twenty-two sovereigns, a silver watch, and a knife. Nothing was dis- covered whereby it could be traced who he was. The jury returned a verdict of Found Drou ned, lIe was buried oil Thursday.— Camb 1 ian.
r——111111 11111 BMiMMawiBBMaBtaiMMwasBMWMBMiani The Late Storm. CARNARVON.— We have to record, the wide spread ravages of one of the most swa rping hurricanes that has occurred during several years. In stating this, we speak rather of its general effects and its extensive route of devastation, than the amount of ruin and mischief which it has inflicted in our immediate locality. As we have appended a brief outline of its simulta- neons effects in several districts as remote from Carnarvon as from each other, we have no hesitation in regarding it as one and the same storm or current of atmospheric action, of which from all accounts, Liverpool appears to have been the vortex. Be this as it may we shall proceed to note down the rise, pro- gress, and results of the visitation, as far as they have fallen under our personal observation, appending to our statement such accounts as the kindness of our correspondents have fur- nished to us. As this tremendous storm originated during the night season, very little is generally known of the appearances by which its ravages were preceded. Our "midnight oil" was however burning: and we witnessed, or rather heard, the storm from its commencement, to its comparative cessation. The preceding day, Sunday, had been calm and cold, with a slight frost in the forenoon, and towards the hills a drizzling snow which subsided into small sleet in the districts near the town, especially during the afternoon when the morning's frost had disappeared. There was no indication during the evening, of any of the usual symp- toms that precede a severe wind storm-no rack or scud was perceptible that we know of, the sky was clouded but not in an unusuil manner. There were no outward sigus of electrical ac- tion or of atmospheric currents. All seemed as usual, and we are not aware that the barometer gave any marked indication. After eight o'clock the wind began to left its voice in whis- pers, which grew gradually hoarse and gnsty; but did not issume any thing of an unusual fierceness until eleven, when ;he tempest may be said to have begau. From that period Lintil four, (the time of our retiring,) the gushing bursts from South West, gathered and grew, in force and volume, and came upon the ear in quick succession, following each other like racers panting for the goal. About midnight the roaring of the storm became intermixed with the crash of falling s!ates and chimney tops; and we certainly do not remember having witnessed a more incessant wind-fall of these articles. But the hawling of the storm and the din of falling stones and tiles was not the chief feature in the horrors of the night. The very hoieses" seemed to rock beneath the breath of the storm: and when in the morning we saw, in the buildings of our fellow townsmen, nothing worse than a few completely shattered roofs, and a general fall of slates, we felt than our anticipations had so far outstrippcflthc reality At what hour the storm subsided we cannot sa". It had abated about four in the morning oC,lou- day,bn:„ continued occasionally during g-reaterpart of theforenoon tho' with diminished violence. It was 1earccl towards the close of the day that the storm would renew its visit, but a few gusts were all that threatened; and the night of Monday was as tranquil as is usual at the season. In the following outline of injuries to the buildings of Carnarvon, we have :,e!eetcd only a few of the more marked for the visitation, as far as it respects the fall of tiles and chimney tops, has been too general in every street to becomc a matter of specification in detail. The chimney of the house in the occupation of Mr. Peter Ellis, of Pool street. was forced down into the house with most ter- rific violence; but fortunately no personal injuries were sus- tained. At Glan helan, near the Pont seiont, the chimney of Mr. Pottei's house fell in, and had it not been that the family took shelter in the^tabie the sacrifice of life would have been awful. The sign of the Moua was blown a considerable way towards the sett. The house of V* illiam Morgan Esq. at Cae cynnamond was much dilapidated, and on Segontium terrace amongst the general show o- injury the house of Mr, O. Neil, presents a marked appearance. Providentially, howcver, no lives have been lost, nor as far as we can learn, any personal injuries received in our immediate neighbourhood. At Port Dinorwic, (Yelin Ileli) we are told the damage has been great. In the country districts round about, trees have been uprooted, and stacks torn >0 shivers and scattered by the tempes:. As yet however, no mention has been made to 1.1, of any personal injuries on land. During the morning of Monday, the quay presented an awful aspect. Several vessels were out and exhibiting signals of distress, whilst our mariners were employed in every necessary operation to ensure their safety. Fortunately their endeavours were successful, and though the damage sustained by the shipping has been great, more serious occurrences nave Leen few, The Sicallow brig, the Thomas schooner, and the Anne of Barmouth, were washed ashore at Alalas near this town. The ]\!ar: a schooner of P\\Jlheli, was driven to the same locality. The Eclipse steamer, was blown ashore near the new pier during- the nifrht, after which she broke her warns and drifted up beyond the patent slip. She was on the slip at three in the morning, but when we saw her she was fur higher un the ihore. We learn that the Festinio* of Liverpool is scuttled in Porthvraur. The New Margarettn of'Aberystwyth was driven We learn that the Festinio* of Liverpool is scuttled in Porthvraur. The New Margarettn of Abcry,jtwyth was driven oil the bank opposite to Porthvraur, but fortunately she was got off safe, At Yelin Heli several vessels were blown on shore and greatly J.a¡¡¡,;gul, amongst them we may mention the schooner Anne and Sarah, the Princess Ameliu, Colonel Smith, Miss Smith, and the Marshal H cUinglon. A vessel. from Bangor, either Jilargaret or Minerva, is I missing, and it is feared she is blown out to sea. I The steamer Avon, bound from Dublin to Liverpool, was unable to make that port. During the whole of the night she was subjected to the fury of the tempest, and was seriously damaged. She had ten cabin passengers. The waves rolled over her in mountainous masses, and the utmost alarm was felt both by the erew and passengers. She however succeeded in putting in at the Menai Bridge, between ten and eleven on the fullowing night, BANGOR.—The storm vas siml\1taneolls in this City with the one experienced at Carnarvon, and of similar duration and severity, continuing with unabated violence during the night and with slight i.batemrnt through Monday. Many housi-s have b. en stripped tf slates or tiles, and several chimneys have been laid prostrate. In the surrounding country vene- rable ehni and oaks which have braved the storms of ages have measured their length on the ground. The shippiug in the poit has sustained some damage, mil ny vessels dragged their anchors and run ashore, with loss of boats, &c.; others are missing. The Mary Ann, of Conway, sunk at the quay a sloop dismasted, and sunk at the weir; ths schooner Thomas Mason, of Liverpool, drifted out to sea without her crew, sup- port d to be lo-t, anotherslonp was driven from the patch and run a-shore near Beaumaris eight or ten vessels biokr from their moorings at Hirael and drove against the quay with consider- able damage to themselves and to the new pier, two tiers of whit h have been much shaken, and the immense blocks of stone displaced. Such was the violence of the gale that slates half a hundr ed weight were blown from the qi:ay to a distance of 150 yards on the strand. There was a square-rigged vessel dismasted off Beaumaris Point, ar.d three sloops on the point. PWLLHU1.T, — During the severe storm on Sunday night and Monday rooming last, much damage has been done in different parts of this locality. In some places large trees have been up- rooted, several hay and corn stacks have been demolished, and the roofs and chimneys of many houses, particularly in Lleyn, have shared the same fate. The barque Sybille, SmHh, master, with timber fiom St. John's N.B., and the flat Doris, Peters, master, with timber from Barmouth for Carnarvon, during the storm on Monday 1110ming last, wt,re both driven from their anchorages at St. Tudwell s Roads; the barque went ashore on the cast side of Criccieth, and is expected to be got off, but with mueh damage. The mate, named Brown as soon as the vessel struck, immediately stripped and jumped overboard, and was unfortunately drowned, ail the rest of the crew are safe. The Bar went ashore on Abereiich beach, and is expected to be got off. On the passage, one of the crew of the flat was struck overboard by the tiller, and, wonderful to relate, came up on the other side. At the moment he seemed stupified, but immediately after his senses revived,and he took hold of a rope, was hauled on board, and is now quite weil. The sloop John and Ellen, Price, in ballast, with no person on board, and the Swallow, Jones, of Aberystwyth, with flour from Waterford for Liverpool, were both driven from the Gimlet Rock, and went ashore on the Abereirrh beach, crew saved the cargo is insured and landed, but partially damaged, both vessels are expected to be got off. The schooner Cycjn?t, Robert4?, master, with slates, only a boy on board, was driven from Porthdinllaen bay, and the sloop Latly Newboruvgh, got foul with one another. Fortunately the boy got OIl board the latter, which anchor held but the former, tinfortwnitcly, went ashore near Bodeilias, and is a complete wreck. KEVIN.—The following particulars respecting the melan- choly wreck of the brig Sappho, Captnin James Wallace, from Demerara for Greenock, lost near Nevin, Carnanon Hay, on the 7lh inst., has been taken from the account of ahoy, aged Hi, called John Thompson, the only one saved cut of fourteen men that were on board. They had experienced very stcrmy weather for some tima. Their boats, bulwarks, &c. were washed away about the middle of the Western Ocean. They at length made Holyhead, which they hoped to weather, but in vain carried a press of sail in order to do so, until the vessel had been repeatcd'y surmoutned by the waves. They were at last compelled by the violence of the storm to take in what sail they had set, and leave the vessel to drift into the bay. They saw that shipwreck was inevitable, night coming on, and nothing but a Ice shore, with all its horrors, making is appearance; and they knew nothing of that excellent little place Portdynllaen, where they might be savcd. It is to be hoped that a better account of that place will soon appear after the excellent survey of Lieutenant Shcrringham. When Capt. James Wallace foresaw their danger, he called all his crew together, and spoke to them respecting the state they were in, and gave each man two sovereigns, to be put in their pockets, for the purposes of burial. He also put some money into his own poiket, and a letter, requesting whoever should find his body to bury him decently, which was done on Wednesday, in Nevm Church-yard. The vessel struck some time before mid- night, and soon went to pieces. The boy was washed over- boaid .\Vltll some spars. He remained on the beach until day- light in one of the empty molasses casks. The vessel was loaded wrta molasses, the whole of which was lost. A rum puncheon, full, the only one on board, been saved, and one small cask, with a few gallons of rum. Only °ne man, a Negro, has yet been washed on shore, besides Capt. Wallace. There was a gentleman passenger on board, called INI r. Edward Hard- graves, who has been at Demerara for some years. It appears from documents washed on shore that he has relations at Wavertree, near Liverpool. The local agent of Lloyd's has writtPn to that place. The following communication, from another respected correspondent, adds a most awful attestation to the foregoing statement •— Dying request of the late Capt. Jamps Wallace, of the brig Sappho, of Grecaock, from Deme- rara, as found in writing on bis corpse.—" if my body be thrown on shore, I request that it^mrty be decently interred, and notice given in the newspapers. The vessel was wrpeked l»otvvoeri seven and fight o\lock p-m. on the 7thf near N^vir, all hands perished except one boy. The remains of Capt. Wallace were very dcceotly interred in the Parish Churcli of Nevin, and the funeral attended by most of the respectable in- habitants of the town. t. TH" MENAt BRIDGE.—This justly celebrated communication between North Wales and Anglesey has been rendered tot Ally impassable. Not only has the wooden roadway parted in two places, but several of the iron sustaining links are snapped and broken into shivers that show the violence of the con- cussion. The assertion which, to suit a particular purpose, has been made by a certain veracious scribbler, that the accident was owing to the decayed condition of the timbers, is as false in fact, as it is ridienlous even when regaided as a theory. Had the wood work given way, it wouid have been scattered, and the suspension bias would not have presented their prp^ent appearance. The fact is the force of the wind was lateral, not fwOll beneath the bridge, and the bars were shivered by a direct collision. They were seen to strikj fire l)y several per- sons; and at one time a trustworthy correspondent assures us that the bridge was blown laterally so as to form an arch, to which the line of direct vision between the sustiensiou niers became a mere chord. Under such circumstances the wood and iron alike gave away and the safe condition of the chains merely serves to show the prac'ical value of the suspension principle when properly applied. Theshock which these chains have borne, and borne in safety, is amply sufficient to justify the principle upon which the bridge has been built; but to lay the blame of the accident upon the presumed unsoundness of the timber is a rank tomfoolery to say no worse. The assertion has nevertheless been copied already into the L >ndon prints. Mr. Churchill, the surveyor of the general post office, Was for- tunately in the neighbourhood it the time of the accident, jffld proper arrangements were immediately :nade under his super- intendence for convey the mail bags and passengers to Ireland. At present, travelling carriages, &c., are conveyed across the Menai in barges, with perfect safety. HOLYHEAD.—The gale of Monday the 7th inst. which spreau its devastating enects tar anu wiue, was ien nere also: but happily no lives were lost, no limbs were broken, the onlv personal disadvantage it produced being to deprive the grea est portion of the Inhabitants of their sleep. At day-ligl.t. broken windows, houses partly unroofed, and streets stre-wed with shattered slates, were evident marks of the violence of th3 gale. The Custom-house and Harbour-master's Office suffered sev rely, as well as the Admira'ty Stor*-yard, where the work- shades were all unroofed, and the wreck timber scattered a >out the premises. But fortunately with the exception of the Holyhead Trader, and the Pretty Lass, the damage dojie^ | to theshipping in the harbour was comparatively smalt. Al:l P. M. a schoonor was seen bearing down for ihe harbour; the pierhead was soon crowded with spectators, feeling thegreate,t anxi, ty for her safety. The Pilot-boat went but returned, being unable to board her, 111 consequence of the heavy sea. She dropped her anchor about a cable's length from the light- house, but with her br >adside on she dr ive rapidly toward 'he rocks oil the opposite side of the bay; a general cryof, the Life Boat, the Lif? Boat, was beard s mndieg through the mul- titude, and instantly it wa, on the jetty end, and such was the interest felt for the safety of the crew and vessel, that it was with the greatest difficulty the Life Bout be kept from be- ing overcrowded with men under the spirited and well con- ducted management of J. G. Johnstone, ESi). Capt. Evans, Capt. Bevis, and other gentlemen, it was manned by able and experienced seamen; who proceeded towards the vessel through a dreadful sea, for by the time the Life Boat reached her, she was three miles to iee .vard of the lighthouse. A Pilot and another of lbe boat's crew, with the greatest ditficulfy boarded her, when they immediately slipped her cables, and succeeded in running her aground on the sands at Penryn, which was lie means of saving the vessel, crew, and cargo. As soon as she took the ground her foremast went by the board, which is the only damage she has sustained. She is called the Anaxibia of Plymouth 140 Tons burthen, John Trevethen, Master, from Naples to Liverpool, with general cargo. About the time the said vessel was grounded at Penrvn, another was seen far to leeward bearing for the harbour but from her di-tressed state, having lost her foremast and main- topma,t, her leeward position, and approach of night, it was greatly feared that the loss of tne vessel and crew was inevit- able, but fortunately her crew hail seen the Anaxibia running for Penrliyn, when the contrived to steer their almost unma- nagcable vessel in that direction, and with the assistance of the above-mentioned life-boat's crew, was brought safely along- side the other schooner. She is called the Amy of Ipswich, George Johnson, master, from Ipswich to Liverpool, with a cargo of wheat. Both vessels will be brought to the harbour to receive the necessary repairs. DENBIGH. — The awful hurricane which commenced about eleven o'clock on Sunday l ist, and raged with unabated f iry until five o'clock the following morning, has been mire de tructive to property in this town and neighbourhood than any in the memory of the oldest inhabitants. Houses were 1111- roofed, chimneys blown down, trees torn up from their roots, and slacks overturned, and carried away by the violence of the tempest, ivbany farmers hód their hay and corn, of all de- scriptions, completely mixed logether, and if a hea y fall of rain had succeeded the ir loss would have been serious, but the following days were favourable for repairing the da- mage, ami the loss is not so much as was expected. Mr. Parry Glover, Mr. price Piiee, and Mr. Hil.litch, and manv others, have sustained great loss, by the damage done to their hcu^e» but we are happy to sav that no lives have been losl, nor any pirsonal injury sustained. The roofs of several cottages on the mountains between Denbigh and Llanrwst were completely sweot awav, and the inmates were compelled to make the best of their way in the middle of the to seek shelter in their neighbouring houses. The effects of little children being car- ried through such a storm may be more ea-ily irnaained than desciibed. The devastation has been general throughout all this part of the county. The late gale has m ade dreadful havoc upon the roofs of the Denbigh Paris.i Church, and St. Hilary's Chapel, and as the parishioners refused the Churchwardens a rate, they are placed in a very awkward dilema to knosv how to get funds to put thcm again in repair. HOLYWEl.l..—The damage done by the storm is very great in the town and neighbourhood 0: Holywell, particularly at a windmill belonging to Richard Sankey, U-q., now in the hold- ing of Sa nnel Williams, The entire roof, together with the heavy machinery, supposed to weigh from eight to ten tons, was carried to a distance of fifteen yards, when it fell an the ridse board of Samuel Williams's house, and forced its way through all the rooms to the ground-fl Samuel Williams, hi; wife, and children, were at breakfast at the time of the accident in the room in which the machine fell—they had a very narrow escape of their lives. That part of the house is completely gutted, and will he obliged to be taken down before in, ma- chinery can be removed. There have been several chimneys thrown down, and a vast number of slates removed from dif- ferent houses. The mines on Halkin and Rhos-y-cae moun- tains have suffered very much, as most of the whimseys are blown down. FI-INT.—The damage here has been very great, jceompan- ied with loss of life. Messrs. liyton & Co., of the Dee Green Col- liery, have severely suffered the brunt of the latestorm. There they have had no less than five large chimneys attachrd to their extensive works blown some of them above 30 yards in height one of them fell upon the boiler hnuse,iiJ which two poor men had taken shelter from the storm, and had fallen asleep they were killed on the spot. Several houses have been un- roofed. Penypalment house, has suffered very much, particu- larly in the roof and several noble trees have been uprooted. The poor farmers will suffer severely, for our correspondent has noticed several stacks of hav and com blown down. CASUALTIES ON THE DEL-The fiat Sarah, MASTER, crew lost; wife and child found dead in the cahia The flIt, Fletcher, Jones; Margaret., Darrow Conservative, Leigh; AdelJlhi, thrt sloop Barmouth, Evans; and the schooner Pheasant, ElIio, were on shore, crews saved. The flat Sandi, Robert Owens, sunk in the channel between Hilhre Inland and Salushury bunk, about two yards of her masts are out of the water. Another Ant sunk in the channel between Salushury Lank and the Flintshire shore, and there is about two yards of her masts out at low water. There arc some small"craft on shore near Hoylak an.1 a large three masted ship on the Hoyle Bank. The are the disasters in the river Dee. after the late severe stenn on Monday morn- ing last. N) damage whatever has been done to the shipping either at Flint, Ba:r,illt, Greenfield, or Mostyn, the above vessels were wrecked on the Cheshire side of the river. CHESTER.—The storm of Sunday night appears, from all the information we have i.e-ui able to collect, to have spread is ravages in every direction around, several houses in the citv. having been uuroofrd by its viobmce, and partly reduced to tuins; and the road to the ferries oil the! opposite side of the Mersey, in many places, so thlckiy strewn with trees, lying across iI, as to render travelling not only tedious but extremely dangerous. The hurricane commenced at the same hour with it-, viz., about 11 oil Sunday night, and from two o'c!ec\ until four it blew a perfect hurricane—chimneys were falling in and individuals in the greatest (ii-t e s, ca'iiirg out for the aid of the police, who, to'heir credit, aut de. the most i mincnt danger, (from ihr falling of bricks ai.d ,]ates,) did all in their power to assist those who were si fir ring and their task was rendered trior difficult in consequence of many parts of the town being in darkness; for, so dreadful did the tempest rage, that between thirty and forty lamps were blown out of the irons,and not a vestige of several of them have been found. The wind did not in the least abate even up to six o'clock in the morn- ing and long before this hour alinost every family in Chester was up—universal terror prevailed throughout the chy, and all were anxiously waiting for the dawn of light. Though many individuals were in the greatest danger, and some received in- juries, yet not one life was lost. Amidst the general i. jury we can only not, the more serious items. The new Church ismech damaged, and several houses in Newtown. The same may be said of many building in the two Norhtjate Streets, and several other parts of the ciry, especially in Crane Street, where the majority of the houses are either wholly or partialty-unroofed. In Stanley place, Boughtou, the Tower Wharf, Nicholas strcrt, Smith's walk, Walls lane, White Friars, Crppen street, and others very many dwellings and manufactories were injured, eirherfrotn the falling in of l'himnry<, the breaking in of the window frames, 01 the destruction oi their roofs. The roof and windows of the Bishop's Palace have not escaped, nor the windowo, of the Cathedral. In Abey street, Mrs. Peers had a narrow esc ape, ste had retired to rest, and being awoke by tbe falling of some bricks, she escaped from her room, and in a little time aftelwards the chimney fell and drove in the roof. The city gaol was also a good deal damaged. The parapet wall for the space of twenty or thirty yards, fronting the city walls, was demolished. On the. City Walls, the Cottage odjoin- itrg Ilr. Posnett's, was unroofed and at the Castle four windows are blown out of the Royal Artillery Barracks, and a great many panes broken in the New Barracks. Several large stones were blowr. from the. north side of St. MichaePschurcli steeple the roof of St. Olave's church was much damaged • a:.d also the roof of the Dee Mills. In flandbriclge the. old houses 011 the Rock were completely gllttcd; two barns were blown down, and several slat of hay were nearly caivied sway in Eecleston Lane. At Dee Side a how window in the mansion of the Ven. Archdeacon Wrangham was blown in. The windows of St. John's church were much shattered, and a pinacle blown from the tower several large stones were also removed fr( m the Priory. In Pepper-street, the chimney belonging to the house of 1\1. Peters, draper, fell and came in contact with the adjoin- ing a1 rn houses,which are chif fly occupied by infirm old persons. In the room of the next to Mr. Peters* the inmate, a very old woman, was asleep in bed but being fortunately awoke by the faHing of ROme bricks, she had just time to make her escape from the room, when the chimney fell, and with it the roof of the apartment where she had beensleeping. Anescape of nearly a similar natvre occurcd at the residence of the flev. C. B. Taylor j in Juhnsircet. A child about six years of 8ge was in bed and the rev. gentleman hearing a noise which indicated the falling of a chimney over the room in which he child slep t, hastened to it, & had bary sufficient time to release the child from its perilous situation, before the chimney came through the roof, immediately over the bed and bad not the child been removed at that precise moment, there is little doubt hut it would have been killed on the spot. One of the most miracu- lous escapes, occurred at Capt. Ball's:—the butler, Mr. Henry was awoke by the falling of a brick on the roof; he got up and had nearly reached his room door, when a portion of a large chimney belonging to Richard Ptileston, Esq. who resides in the next house fell down, driving in nearly all the roof of his room, the rafters, knocking Lim down. Though Mr. Heurv was considerably cut and bruized he managed to get up, and fortun- ately aitned to reach a room on the same landing and just as he had opened the door, the remainder of the chimney fell wih a hcrrible crash, filling the whole of the staircase,, down which he might have gone, several of the bricks scaring his legs and feet. To enumerate even she more serious cases of injurv would far e-;c3ed our limits. The dev?station is so general that our Chester friends have cause to rejoice in fear and trembling that no lives have been added to their amount of loss. AT BRETON, CHRISTLETON, AND MOSTYN, the storm was similar in its results. No less than 20 prime oaks have been destroytd on the estate of Richard Masser, E<q. AT TARPORLEY, fallen chimneys, roofless hoases, and torn up trees, hear evidence of the strength of the tempest—500 trees 0:1. Delamere forest lie together on the ground in a single cluster as if piled together by a vortex of the gale. Thousands are scattered about the forest. AT EATON, also a number of fine trees are destroyed, and the grounds of the Marquis of WestmiDster have sustained much injury. The village of RADFORD-hag sustained damage in its new church, and several stacks oi hay have been lost. At HooLE.the visitation \vas terrific, and had Lady Brough- ton been at home, the luss of life would have been awful. Two heavy stac ks of chimneys have fallen through tbe chambers of her mansion, and whelmed no less than five beds, on some of which her ladyship and servants would have slept. At it wrs the inmate, s-c rrcely escaped with life-a moment's delay would have prevented their getting in time from under the second stack of the chimneys. The firs: had fallen into the chamber of Lady Broughton about two bouts before, without giving the warning. The horrid crash of its descent has doubtless been l^jrnioans of saving the lives of every person in the house for their apartments lay immediately ni der the northern s'ack. Those ^hich ftjll first weie on the eastern side. At- PHESTON, life W*' breo lost AS as PROPERTY* Ã young lady and four o'her persons are said to have been killed by the falling of chimneys. In STAFFORDSHIRE, trees, buildings, hay stacks, and we rrgret to say, loss of life bears fearful testimony to ihe extent of ibis ravaging storm ever in this remote country. MANCHESTER.—So widely spread and fiercely devastating was this far sweeping storm at Manchester, the 'Guardian' has found it necessary to occupy no less than eight or nine columns with its details. As with us the gale commenced about eleven at night on Sunday, and continued until noon on the Monday. The damage done to public buildings, and the loss of life, are terrific. We have no spr.eefor details. There is scareely a house but has suffered more or less, and the town presents a melancholy spectacle of windows completely battered • in, chimneys blown down, t he following are killed and missed The cook at the Manchester Infirmary Miss Kyle, Cappers- hill, killed by the chimney fallen into her bedroom two children killed in the same manner in Acton-street and two others dangerously hurt; a servant girl killed at Broughton; a man killed whilst passing through Bridge-street by the fall- ing of Mr. Yadsley's chimney; a lady killed at Stretford, four miles from Manchester, by a chimney falling into her bedroom. Subsequent accounts state that nine persons were killed in Manchester only. LIVERPOOL.—On Sunday night Liverpool was visited by a very awful and destructive hurricane. Innumerable buildings in the town and ihe vicinity have been seriously damaged, while at the moment our correspondent wrote not less than six persons had been ascertained to have "lost their lives by the fall of buildings. The house, corner of Great George-street, in Nelson-stre.t, fell with a tremendous crash soon after four o'clock. Two females and two, gentlemen were buried in the ruins. Fortunately, through the exettions of the police, these we re extricated, after an labour, very little hurt. The storm abated at 3 o'clock on Monday af'ernoon. From a gentleman, who reached shore by means of a life-preserver, it appears that the parket-ship Pennsylvania, anu all her crew, have perished on West Hoyle. They were twenty-five in number, and there were five cabin passengers. DtBLTN.— Our accounts from Dublin are of the most awful nature. Scarcely a house has escaped suffering more or less from the gale and several persons have been killed by the falling in of chimneys. The names of no less than seventeen sufferers art! recorded, but the papers state that the casualties and losses to human life and property are incalculable. LONDON. — On Monday, from a very early hour in the morning;, the metropolis was visited with a high wind, which did not, however, cause so much damage as the similar hur- ricanes which recently occurred. Chimney pots and tiies were unfixed, but in no instance that has come to our knowledge was any person dangerously hurt thereby. A policcman wt;s struck, however, by a fragment of a tile, while on duty in Hatton-garden, and had his face severely lacerated. A similar accident occurred to a crentlemaii named Pittman, residing in Burton-crescent. In Pleasant-row, Lambeth, the back part of a house was blown down, but the inmates escaped without sustaining any injury. On the river a number of vessels were from their moorings, blt 110 serious aTtl^ent occurred. The wi!1 continued high throughout the day, with occasional showers of hail and rain.
AntiRYSTWYTH TOWN-HALL.—Thomas Evans was ex- amined oil Wednesday last, before John Huberts, Esq., mayor, on the ehnrge of fraudulently obtaining the sum of 1 ■"s. from Anne Williams, landlady of the Coopers' Arms, in this town. From the testimony given 011 oath by the different witnesses, it appeared that tn the previous SRturùay the prisoner came to the Coopers'Arms, and represented himself to be a "second lieutenant" in her Majesty's navy, 1elon;ing to the frigate Dab'ii,, then lying at Black-rock, off Liverpool, that he had been sent to Aberystwyth by Admiral Codrington, for the pur- pose of making this town depot for enrolling seamen into her Majesty's navy, that the gang" was to consist of four officers, (himself inclusive,) and 24 men, and were to be expected in a few days, the Admiral being soon to follow, and the Dublin being also to leave her moorings at Blacl, liock, and appear in the offing to receive the recruits. Our "second lieutenant," in virtue of his office of avant courier, fixed upon the Coopers' Arms for head quarters, declaring that the flag should be hoisted therewith. He then entered with due official gravity into some minor, but very necessary details, such as that the four officers were to content themselves with only two beds betwcen them —board, lodging, and washing, to be 18s. a week for each; but no officer was to have more than two shirts washed in the same week. (Loud Laughter.) Admiral Codrington, as far as we could understand, was to board, lodge, and wash" where he liked. Having, in direct contravention to all the rules and practice of the service, provided fur the officers first, he then thought of the 24 men that were to follow him, and having consulted with the authorities at the Coopers' Arm,, [uel finding that house to be too small for the whole party, the 1andlaely very luckily recollected that she had a friend who had a house that would exactly answer the purpose; and which, upon examination, the Lieutenant pronounced to be just the thing, and would make a capital Rondyvoo" for the 'gang'. So far, every thing went off very well; but when all these pre- liminary matters had been settled between" the contiact- iug- parties," it just occurred to our souard sai-disant Lieut., that he had no "change" about him but, said 're. this was of no consequence, as of course, the kind hostess y,oul(1 lend him J 5s, to cany him over Sunday, as on Monday he would cash a cheque of 130i. which he stated to have with iilm at the 1\ationnl Bank, and with this modest request, the good IwtUrcd landlady instantly complied, and the los. were gi en him to be returned, of course, oil the Monday following, from the pro- coeds of the 130/. cheque. Having pocketed the "change," our hero sat himself down very deliberately, to spend it, and, it being Saturday night, and Christinas time as well, he was not long before lie found plenty to assist him. When the glass had circulated pretty fncly, he became very communicative, and, amongst other things, he told his comuotators that he was the son of the collector of customs at New York, who was worth goof. a year;—he told them also, that he was by no means absteini JUS in his habits, and fiom being engaged in a drunken spree," Admiral Codrington had ckcked him of 30s. a week, and, "hark ye," said he to mine host, "do you know the re"son I have six buttons on this sleeve, and only five on that ? Why, because the Admiral took that button off when he took off the 30s. a week, (Loud laughtfr, in which the Prisoner joined.) 011 Sunday evening lie was taken into custody as an imposter, and on searching him, nothing was found upon him but two quids. The above evidence being gone into the prisoner was called on what he had to say, but he decliued inuking any reply he was therefore fully com- mitted. lie conducted himself with perfect coolness, and it by no means seemed as if this was his first appearance in a court of justice. He was dressed in a blue jacket and trousers,—-had a green shade over one eye,—his age might be from 25 to 30- height about 5 feet G,Frol1l a Correspondent. EXTRAORDINARY ATTEMPT AT MTJRDER.—Monday Mr Hugh Thomas, of Machynlleth, a solicitor, and clerk to the Board of Guardians at that place, left at four in the afternoon, for the purpose, as he stated, of seeing Captain Thurston, a magistrate, and chair-man of the beard, who lives alPcnnel, on business. On the road he dmnk to excess, and on arriving at the house, rode through a narrow passage into the kitchen, and asked for Captain Thurston. The coachman replied that he was in the dining-room, and that he must go to the front door, and took hold of the horse's head to push it out of the house as well as its rider. Thomas tohl him if he did not immediately leave hold of the bridle he would shoot him. The coachman persisted, and eventually closed the door, and instantly Thomas fired through the pannel, and the ball lodged in the fleshy part of th, coachman's arm. lie then discharged another pistol without effect, and riding to the dining-room windows used most violent language to Captain Thurston. The Captain fired a gun loaded with shot twice at the horse's legs, "hich made it gullop away, and Thomas was soon after secured by a consta- ble, after he had been to two houses for the purpose of obtain- ing more powder. lIe had five balls ill his pockets. On Thursday he was taken before a numerous bench of magis- trates, and committed to Dolgelly jail to await his trial on this serious charge. He has hitherto borne the character of a very peaceable man, and his hatred towards Captain Thurston is supposed to have originated in his opposition to his election, and since corresponding with the commissioners to obtain his dismissal. The coachman is in no danger, and the hail has been extracted by Mr. Lloyd, of Aberdovey.—-Leeds paper. ROWLAND JONES, ESQ., BnooM IIALL,-This worthy and benevolent gentleman, has evinced his kindness, to poor of I different parishes, during the past holidays by distributing large sums of money among them, as well as ordering many of his sheep to be slaughtered for the use of their families during the winter season, A few weeks ago, we quoted from the 'Carmarthen Journal,' a notice of a new Periodical about to be published, as was stated, in North Wales: together with some remarks of our own upon the ponderous duties which the Carmarthen Jour- nal' seemed desirous of imposing upon its Editor. We now copy from the Welshman' the following, which, as our readers will perceive, raps off, in a most felicitous manner, the bigotry of his contemporary journalist, A wag has imposed upon the divine editor of the Carmarthen Journal,' by sending him parts of sentences, containing in a certain prospectus of a neriodieal. about to be started in North Wales. He,no doubt,, thought he had told of what he considered highly delightful, and was. moat happy to communicate it to his readers. But what will he say when he finds that the following is the true and complete ver- sion of the document: The name of the work is the "SHIELD OF LIBERTY," (Tarian Rhyddid) and its objects are — Exciting the feelings of the people against Popery, the Popery of the Established Church. "Shaming Sectaria niviii, the Sectarianism of the state. "Abolishing Dissent, by abolishing the connection of Church and State. "Putting an end to Toleration, by the establishment of freedom. "■Restoring the privileges of Episcopacy, and particularly the privilege of being a blessing instead of a curse to man- kind. "Saving the Church (universal) from the erils inflicted upon it ba men in pretended Holy Orders-men crowded, by the State, into the Ministry of the Gospel, without .religious qualifications. Defending the (real) successors of the Apostles in their character and repute, viz.—those who believe and practice the Gospel according to the words of the Apostles, and preach it by virtue of a religious and spiritual calling."

LLANOV.—So long as the churchwarden of Llanon is permitted to remain, as he now is, and for four weeks has been, a prisoner in Carmarthen Gaol, for his inability on account of extreme poverty to do that out of bis own pocket, which the collected parish refused a rate for, namely, the means of Drocnring the sacramental elements -so long do we feel it to be an imperative duty to con- centrate in these our pages the opinions of our contempo- raries, and the resolutions of the various Christain com- munities that mav deetn it incumbent upon them to have compassion of him in his bonds." We advert now with especial delight and satisfaction to the resolutions of the Committee of the Voluntary Church Society at Birming- ham, held at the public office in the Town Hall, on the 21st day of December last, the pro novants in which were all, as we understand, not only members of the Church of Christ, but wt at is a more intelligible definition, membets of the Church of England. It will not fail to be remarked that no public meetings have been held to applaud the conduct of the Vicar of 1-lanelly :—no public congratula- tions have greeted the Incumbent of Llanon. On the con- trary, we have reason to known from letters that have been received from various persons of every traJe in the Church Establishment, that his unhallowed proceedings are gene- rally condemned, and universally deplored. We sincerely hope, and verily believe, that it will lead to measures of the most salutan kind in the future government of the Church. We are happy in hei: g able to announce that the Secretary for the Home Department has required copies ofdocuments in the Llanelly case, and a writ of Habeas Corpus is daily expected in that of Llanon. Ibis will sufficiently prove that the friends of civil and religious liberty are in good earnest pursuing the right course, whatever may be the re- sult. While these proceedings are pending it behoves every Christian mln to consider the enormous power to act m's- chievously which is possessed by tbe Diocesan Courts, and jarely they are ever exerted or put in force against ar.y portion of the Clergy, however notorious and infamous any of their misdoings may be. It has always been with great pain that we have felt it to be cur duty to tecord tne public transgressions of any of the ministers of religioE, and if there had been any tuing like a wholesome discipine exercised over them bv the Diocesan Courts, we should have felt it to be not onljr unnecessary, but perhaps i!n- proper tc have done so. Instead, however, of thefe being any apparent'disposi tion on the part of the episcopacy, to control licentiousness of conduct, or to restain tbe spiritual Ileads of soeietv in any departures from the orthdoxv tbev are sworn to observe, it is most painfully made manifest '.bat they are at full liberty to pursue the most reckless course with impunity; and hence it becomes the duty of a public journalist to expose, ns the only available means of correction. The agitation of this subject, so important as it is to all classes, could not have been made at a more fitting season—nor bv any means balf so influential arid effectual, as by the successive imprisonment of two Parish- ioners- the last case being the stronger in atrocity, because the leilst defensible on any principle of justice, unless indeed the new Conservative doctrine is to prevail, that a rich churchwarden is to be protected because be is rich- and a poor one to be oppressed because he is poor, contrary to the laws and customs of the realm, and statutes thereof made.— Welsnman. The tide rose to a sufficient height on Tuesday morning to adm t of the Great Western Steam Ship being placed in the Dry Dock, which was done about six o'clock, without accident or injury. Her exterior may now be seen to advantage by persons visiting the IJoyal Dock Yard; but we see very little disposition on the part of the managers or proprietors to gratify the curiosity of the public to view her interior, for the first thing that attracts your notice at the gangway is, "no admittance." However, it is promised by Capt. C'luxton, that as soon as the repairs inside are completed, that arrangements will be made to admit persons to see her. She will remain in the Dock about a fvrtnight.- Welshman. METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY OF LIVERPOOL.— At the monthly meeting on Tuesday evening. Dr. Lee-, F. R. S., in the chair, 'fourteen professors of the scientific institutions of the Coiled States, which four other scientific professors oftheConti- nent, were elected associate members. The principal subject of the various communications and journals was an account of the sales between the 2Gtli of November and the 3d of De- cember, from which it appeared that the gale could be satisfac- torily traced to the south of the island of Jamaica, in the est Indies, about the l7thof November. From hence it passed over the Bahama Islands, where it did considerable damage, and laid waste a great many of the plantations. From the Bahamas it took a noith-easterly direction across the atlantic, and reached Truro on the 26th of November, at noon. It here continued to blow a hard gale all night., which, on the 27th, increased to a perfect hurricane. In Ireland its effects were of a frightful character, and in the Bav of Dublin, on the 28th, the barometer indicated 27. flo inches, the lowest on record for many years at the place. The storm reached London 011 the 28th', and was attended in the whole of its track with much thunder and vivid lightning, and in some places with great falls of rain. After it had left England, the stonn seems to have expended itself upon the Continent. A paper was read from Mr. J. G. Tatem, on the subject of the easterly wind aba- ting with the declining sun, and on the increase of the wind in rivers just before high water, denominated by sailors high wa_ tev squalls, and a second communication by die same author on a iumunious arch nijd aurora borealis, seen at High \Yy-: comb-, on the 1 6th of Sept. last. There were exhibited from a member at Norwich, plans of three new anemometurs for measuring the force and velocity of the wind, with its direction at any given period. — Liverpool Times. DBKADTUL ACCIDFNT AND Loss OF LIFE AT MANCHES- Trn.On Sunday morning tast a frightful accident occurred at the brewerv of Messrs. Hurgesaand Wbeater, in Satford. It appeared that Messrs. Burgess and Co. have recently erected some new buildings ia Back Hampson-street, which report said were in a very unsafe condition, the consequence of which was that numbers crowded to the spot for the pur- pose of gratifying their curiosity. 1event proved that the report was not without foundation, for &t the time specined a large portion of the fcui'ding fell, and it must be considered a most merciful circumstance that tbe catas- trophe did not occur until the bulk of the visitors had de. parted, as in that case the loss oftite must have been fear- ful. As it is, however, several nnfortunatefellaw-creatures have been prematurely I urri^d into etettiiiy. The known sufferers are a Mr. Spencer, the traveller of the firm, a beer- shop keeper, named Ruiter, and a friend of his; but an in- dividual having been dug out who was not known, it is feared that manv others are underneath the rubbish. As soon as some slight degree of order was restored strenuous exertions wen, made to get at the bodies; but up to four o'clock on Sunday afternoon the persons employed had only succeeded in recovering one. SINGULAR CIRCUMSTANCE. — A very singular circumstance occurred a few days fgo, to a gentleman residing in Tox- ti-th-patk, Liverpool. One morning the wife of tbe man who lives at his lodge brought to hire a small basket, care- fllily packerl with pc;per, which she found the night beiore, about 10 o'clock, fastened to the inside of tbe gate. On the top of the basket was a brown paper, directed by name to the gentleman of the house, who examined the contents in the presence of a friend; judge of the surprise of both when at the bottom of the b isket was found a piece of lea- ther, carefully sewed up, containing a quantity of gold coin. The gentleman is greaMy distressed to know from whence this money is receivcj, not from any foolish curi- j osity, hut to prevent unjust surmises and, as the resti- tution of property is the next in estimation to that of never having unjustly possessed it, he hopes the party who has ni sent him this large sum of money will take some method of informing him from whom it came and be may be assured that no use vrill be triads of it to bit disadvantage.—Morn- ) ing fat. "-¡O' Two PERSONS SUFFOCATED H G AS -A considerable sen- sation has, during thp past week, prevailed in Leeds, in consequence of death of two persons who were suffo- cated by art escape of gas from one of the pipes belonging to tbp Ken- Gas company, early in the morning of Saturday last. Their names were Mrs. Jane Black, aged 69, and Miss Eleanor Welsh, aged 23, the former mother and the latter daughter of Mrs. Welsh, tea-dealer, Commercial street. Airs. Black resided in Wade lane, and the grand- mother's house, and soon afterwards they both retired to rest. Tbe next day they were both found dead. There was no appearance of the clothes having been disturbed, or of any attempt having been made-to get out of bed. It was evident, from the intolerable smell of gas in the houserthat a large escape of gas had tuben place the preceding night. The jury returned the following, vgrdict The jury wish: it also to be known that they are unanimously of opinion that the servants of both gas companies-arehigb'y to blame ir. not taking more prompt meins to prevent the fecurrenee of mischief, after learning that an explosion. had taken place." The unfortunate sufferers were interred on CBrist- mail day—the day appointed for the marriage of Miss Welsh,—Leeds Mtrcuru. THE REVENUE.—It is probable that the Revenue for the quarter which is now rapidly arriving at a close, will not prove so satisfactory as was calculated upon at its commencement. The improvement in our export aud import trade has been extremely slow, if we except the commercial intercourse with New York, to and from which port nearly all the vessels that have been reported for many weeks past, have had full and valuable cargoes. Tlie deficiency iu the resources of the coun- try at the close of the financial year will, it is fully expected, be from 4,000,0001. to 5,000,0*00/ and if to this be added the creat expenditure which has been and must continue to be incurred in Canada, in India, and ia augmenting the navy and the clruiv, it is considered, as by no means improbable that the Finance Minister, will require from 1 Û,OOO,OOC/. to 12,000,0001. in the spring of the year. A funding of Ex- chequer billls to this or a larger amount has been talked, of as most likely among the great capitalists.—Times„ THE AMEKICAN MnrtSTER" AND MR. O'COSREIX.—rCon- on the PresiJent for all correspondence held bei.. and thp Honourable Andrew Stevenson, minister to in relation to the affair between Mr. Stevenson and WA O'Connell affair, recalled Mr. Stevenson and if any have been taken, to call Captain Matthew Perry, of lite United States navr, to account for having been the bearr of a challenge. The resolution was ordered to be printed. — Philadelphia Correspondence. A subscription is opened in Liverpool, for a fund to secure for St. George's-hall or some one of the public buildings of that town, a porirai; of his Grace the Duke of The pieture is to be by Haydon, the scene—a visit to the I field of Waterloo years after the battle was fought. The Duke is represented as standing musing over the scene of his past glories, leaning on the noble steed which carried him through the toils and dangers of that arduous day. The committal of the Rev. J. R. Stephens will be followed, it appears, by proceedings against other individuals who have laboured with him to excite the people to a violation of the laws. With respect to the Reverend Gentleman, it cannot be saicl that the Magi>trates of the neighbourhood or the govern- ment have not borne with him as long as the safety of the country would permit. It is so far creditable to the people of Manchester and its neighbourhood, that the incitements to violence have hitherto produced little effect; but enough has transpired in the course of the examinations to show that longer delay would have been a culpable dereliction of duty oil j the part of men in authority. In Manchester the Rev. Mr. | Stephens appears to have been considered no great prophet. ■ But it is not in great cities that such characters prove most I mischievious. Property is there extensively diffused, and au- 1 thority is powerful. It is in the smaller manufacturing towns, l| of which the population consists of a few masters and nutner- f j ous workmen, that characters of this description create most I apprchension.Mor11ing Chronicle. THE LORD MAYOR AND THE NEW POOR LAW.The Lord Mayor, by the course he has pursued with reference to the new Poor Law, has vindicated the provisions of the law from the imputation of inhumanity, and cast the odium-on those who, from mental or moral insensibility, were unfit to be entrusted with its administration. He has expressed his deter- mination to fine every overseer who refuses to relieve poor y r persons found wandering in a state of destitution in their t parishes. That the law is not justly chargeable with such criminal ncglect is evident. The 54th sectiou of the new Poor ^CHk Law Act expressly directs "that it shall not be lawiul for any overseer of the poor to give any further or other relief or allow- ance from the poor-rate than euch as shall be ordered by the. guardians or select vestry, except in cases of sudden and urgent necessity; in which cases he is hereby required to give such 1 temporary relief as each case shall require, in articles of necew- sity, but not in moneV." N- or is this relief to be restricted to those whose claim on the parish by virtue of legal settlement is Hdmitted for the act goes on to say, that the overseer is re- quire.i to administer this relief, "whether the applicant for relief be settled in the parish where he shall apply for relief, or not. 1 he act further gives power to two magistrates to en- force this benevolent provision of the law by fining any overaeer who may refuse such relief in the sum of five pounds, to"he levied hi distress on his goods and chattels, iu default of pay- ment. Nor have the Poor Law Commissioners been wanting in giving imperative instructions to the relieving overseers as to their duty with refen-.iee to such poor and destitute persons found wandering about their respective parishes, having no settlement in them; they have issued imperative orders tht. such persons shall be instantly relieved. The deci- sion of the Lord Mayor has set the question at rest, if any tia- ■% sonable doubts had previously existed as to the imperative duty of overseers with reference to cases of urgent distress, not be- longing by settlement to their respective parishes. Cheap dinners are now the order of the day with Toreis they found last year that their feeds" were vastly too expen" sive, and that even with a large disbursement from the general fund, and from the private pockets of their leaders, they were unable to accomplish anything beyond filling the paunches of their partizans, and getting laughed at for their pains. Now, therefore, instead of ten-and-sixpenny, they give away only three-and-sixpennv tickets, eac h individual of any influence taking a guim a's worth, and distributing them as he can find people to accept them. Such was the case, we believe, at Buck- insjham 011 Friday, and it would have been strange, indeed, if a decent Assemblage of farming servants and others had not thus- been procurred, to celebrate what was termed the anniveis rv of the foundation of the Conservative Association."—Morning Chronicle.
