Sir. Jones Loyd most judiciously and fortunately, after a couple of hours spent in wandering in .all directions except the right one, brought the discussion to a close by showing that the real question was that of acceptance or non - acceptance of the terms proposed, and the meeting separated without 'further loss of time. Still the public have a right to complain that so little was done to assist their general judgment of Sir Robert Peel's measure, and to slow, if it had any, it weak or dangerous points. The time consequently i drawing near when the discussions of Parliament on the measure must take place, without the members being much more enlightened upon it than thev were on the first dav. To supply in part toe omission, attention mav usefullv be directed to a letter which is annexed from a practical banker," of which indeed there is suffi dent internal cvidmce. His leaning is naturally enough to the old or existing system, and he must not expect every one to admit what he ears of the harmlcssness of issues of notes, and the sufficiency of vuc &(;iuai cuein upuu vueui wneu lu excess; DUl IE is very material to have proved as he does, that the fuppresion of local issues cannot of itself avert the mischief arising from speculation and over - trading. ice louowing is uie leiier ruerrea to : .UknclJliuiirr, ViUllj iutertited in the mwure re - Utic to tiLkir - c nd iht cumnrj ttopoundrd by fir R. rJ, I tire nectuirlly read witk great cxii - and tttcntlon 1 - j txth .n tb tuljt.Lt tl Tt al vf the I'nuV Charter.

I apprehend ettker the cm or the other could only produc toftnitc con - fustoa attd miachief. The demaad La both mm regulates the ssrolv. By Gmiting the amount of paper money Rr Robert thinks hs will rtpreas speculation. By M means would it prove ao, Ths baaker wtth limited atnoust mht by erroneous judgment lend to speculators, and deny assistance to prudent and auVstantlal men of business. All such transactions moat depend on the judicious conduct and knowledge of lh banker. Now, as to the measure of restricting ths Issue of cooatry bankers to the average amount issued by them during the two or three last years, which If they exceed, I presume it wiu M propoeea w saojeci inem to a Deary peaaity ; l tuna it would be placing tbrm in a very anxious and embarraaang situation : because, if at any time (and It must constantly happen) the existing aoouat of their issues should approach nearly to their limit, it mhtbt be that with several branches, which many banks hare, they could not know at one branch what issues were bein made to or were required by customers at the others on the same day ; and so, without any Ln - teutioa ot tranegrssing, the aggregate amount of issues at the various branches on that day might, thouch to only a small extent, exceed the limit, and aj subject them to a severe punishment for an excess which they did aot intend and could not guard against, and quite incommensurate with the trantgreasion. " Whether the system of the Issue of promissory notes payable on demand, which has grown up with, and baa been always proportionate to, the wants and necessities, to the wealth, and to the commercial, agricultural, and manufac turing business, of the country, ought to be restricted and put inta letters, is a matter for most grave and serious con siileratwa by the Legislature : and I moat ardently hope aa trust that every member of it, being a lover of his country and advocate of its best interests, will give his serious an 1 undivided attention to this most important business, and endeavour to make himself master of the subject, before he rives his Consent to the very important change to which the principles now put forth by Sir Robert 1'ecl would lead in the monetary aSairs of this great country." The annexed further communication will be espe cially valuable to the proprietors of liana stock in teaching them how to think upon their own anairs: " The observations which yon have lately made on the proposed alterations in the management and charter of the lUnk of England appear to have bvren chiefly directed to that part of the inquire which relates to the t fleet on the cur rency rf the country ; but a very important question arises wheu it is conaiJercd with referrnce to its influence on the pnaitijn of the holders of llank r - 'toek. The present appears to oe a very uvouraMe opportunitv lor the shareholders to oDtain some mi Tiuatiun rt.'ectuirf their actual KtOition anu in "Lira mey coau periiaps more prontatrly employ ' heir time than in eaviliine at an arrangement over which thfy have no contru.

The 3,000,000t also to be tranferred in the shape of securities to the tune branch of the establishment, will undoubtedly be Exchequer - tills or other Government stuca ; as tne cue! requisites for the purpose intended will be security and farilitr of conversion in the muket. if it should ever be wintei These luni JiJt Oovernn,ent se curities, and tne wnole cl the bullion being therefore transferred and tledged for meeting the general circulation now in the hnds cf the public, the remainder of the securities will be left with the banking department to meet the claims i tuc j'uout anu pnraie ceposiu, ana tne Lowers oi liana shares. " I'cder these circumstances, therefore, it would be venr desirable that the shareholders should obtain a specific and aeiaiiea account oi tae actual amount and character of these securities, in order to form soce estimate of the real value of their stock. The market price of Bank shares is, of course, in a great flrgree governed by the rate of interest it yields, and the greater or leu probability cf the continuance of that interest on its rresent scale; and hence the huh price which it has for some time commanded. Hut the chance of an eventual increase cr decrease tn the amount of the capital of each share must surely enter in some degree into the calculation of its I reseat value ; and cf this the shareholders are likely to remain still completely in the dark, unless tbey can now obtain some more explicit infertcation respecting " One of the principal items ia their securities is the deadweight annuity .which has still some vears to run. 1 1 is eaaen. tial that the proprietors shoull be informed at what rate this is calculated, how much is aaaually employed aa accruing interest, and how much reserved U replace the capital advanced. Many of their other securities, however certain the Bank may feel of receiving the Interest with punctuality, are perhaps of an extremely anmarketable description, and uiLuimi. vi cunTeriron into money in case any more yrosiaole employment should present itself to their notice. All these particulars are nece - sary for the full onder - tttnding cl the position of the Bank proprietors, although not strictlv reauired br the nubile as holders of notes, who will in future be tecured by having their paper based solely an Government debt, and who even now have a priority oi claim until these note are fully paid off. The present published averages give no information whatever on this question, and it is not probable that the new returns will be much more explanatory on this point, which is rather a matter ci partnership account, than as aCair regarding the currency itself. " Opinions appear to I very various respecting the future i'roepecuoi me nan, as lar as regards the prtbable emoluments ot the institution. Uy many it is supposed that by oflering greater facilities than at present to private depositors, they may t enabled to increase the drawing accounts, both in number and value, and thereby obtain a larger amount of capital at their disosal for employment Stock who doubt the probability of this extension of business, and who consider that the emolument given up to the uvmimitui uourr ce new arrangement will not oe compensated bv increased profits from the above or other sources, it becomes of still greater importance to them that a. more correct idea should be formed ot the value of the capital now existing.

So that the sujpreaaion of their notes will not neceatarily aflordthe country security against their failure. As to over iseues by country bankers, I had thought that the examination of evidence by the committee of the House of Commons had dissipated the absurd and rrro - ixoui nation that they can effect that object at their pleasure. The supply of their paper, like that of any other occetaary thing, cannot precede the demand for it ; and the supply is rrgulat'd by the want of the country, and not by the avidity of the bankers to eiend their mucs ; ax.d I look upon it that the average amount of their issues is just that which the eitent of their businea require', and no mere ; and titis accounts for the small variation which Kr Itobert allows is observable in the amount. He seems t . think it of important advantage to sejatrate the department of irtue from that of hanking, and that they ought to be (.Weed each on a diflerent footing. To this the Bank of .England will make no difficulty, because, alter alL though the separation mav atem actual, the two departments are increased the flatness previously noticed.

On Monday, the 6th of May, Corporal Jones, of the Royal Sapper nd Miners, sent np an ir. n lS - ponader gen, covered with an incrustation of mud and pebbles, formed into a sort of conglomerate by the oxide of iroa, with oyrtert adhering to it, on removing which the metal was so nft, that it could be indented by the nail, and when cot off and scraped small or pounded, it became extremely hot, and did not cool again for some hours when tied up in paper.

On Monday, the 13th of May, - Major - Generel Pasley paid hi nnt viit to Spithead, and found everything well arranged and well conducted, a Admiral Hid Parker, the superintendent of the Dockyard, had afl&rded every necessary aid toth in fitments, store, and men, having sent the same sxuiui and experienced rigger in the lumps, and hariag ordered out the Drake sailing lighter to Spithead to receive aad load the guns recovered, whilst ber master and crew assist ia the work. Including the veteran pensioners, the total number of soldiers, sailors, &.C, employed daily is more than 100 ; but the operations will not be so interesting a those of the Royal George, no great charges ef gunpowder Deing required, and no large mawes oi timber remaining. The Edgar was blown up in 1711 by some accident that could never be accounted for, a every soul on board, including numerous visiter from the shore, in addition to 400 seamen aad marines, perished. The explosion of her niaga - xines having knocked her to pieces before the sank, the tide flowed freely round the part, so that most of her woodwork has been eaten bv the.worm : but. unlike the timber of the Hoyal George, which was preserved in the stiff blue mud, the little thai now remains of tne woodwora oi tne EJgar is entirely rotten, and may be broken to piece by the hand, cr penetrated with ease by any sharp instrument. In tact it has the appearance ot Ming Oarred tnrougn. and the first baity impression was that it might have been burned, but this on consideration was impossible, because though part of it may have been set on fire and thrown up into the air, the fire would have floated away on falling, and the oak would have sunk immediattlv. long before the fire could have penetrated deeper than the surface. Excepting that all the grain of tr.s wood is perfect, it is quit black througnoul use peat. Last year part of the keel and a floor timber of the Edgar were brought up in good preservation ; but this year the only sound piece was oak, through which an iron belt had been driven, which wa itself reduced in sixe to less than a tenth part of it former thickness, but which, as it oxidated, had preserved the part of the wood near and round it, but the remainder of the aame piece was a soft as peat. Some bottle, shot, have also been got up. The proteci of recovering all the guns ef the Edgar in a very short time i by no means so promising as General rley and the men employed under him bad anticipated at the end of last season; In the year 1810 no less than 15 iron fun were recovered in a few days, and towards the end of H'S S more were got up, making 20 in all, one of which was broken, and as thev were all at or near the surface of the anchoring ground, so that no charges of gunpowder were required to clear any of them. It was natural to conclude that the rest of them would be found with equal ease. Last week's work, however, in which only one perfect gun and two broken one were discovered, renders speedy suc cess more doubtful ; but, as those which are not yet accounted for (47 in number) must be at the bottom. General i'asiey nas directed that the lumps shall be moved from time to time, and that every effort shall be made, by sweeping with rakes, half - anchor creepers, or otherwise, to fall in with them, for they are not buried like those of the Royal George. nut unless anotner nest of guns (for so the seamen term a group or guns) shall be discovered, it will probably take nearly the whole season to remove them, instead of a few months, a was confidently anticipated at the end of last year. These iron guns being of no value, the only object that induced Major - General Pasley to propose to the Admiralty to approve of removing them, was to render the whole of the anchoring ground at Spithead available for the use of the Royal Ny, as it was informer time.

I was much gratified at seeing so favourable a statement of the result of the publiahinr business carried on by the House of Cofuraons through the agency of its of - ucers ; out, on a more oreiul inspection of inis return, l wa surprised to find that no allowance waa made for the urn iaid for pnnting these pat ers. to say nothing of the expense incurred ui making up the return. The total receipt from thj sale of Parliamentary papers, irom J o to mo, is ss iouows : Whole sets Miscellaneous papers Parliamentary papers sold as waste paper Total receipts From this sum is deducted the expenses of rent, salaries to clerks, kc, of the three offices for sale Total net produce ... There is also deducted the amount paid for prosecutions for libel, or actions instituted against the House of Commons through its officers The balance is stated ti 1 the " net profit" to the public by the sale of printed Parliamentary paper ... 30,189 7 2 Surely the words " net profit" should mean the balance that remained after deducting all expenses, printing and paper included. Perhaps some of your readers may be able to estimate what the net profit by the sale of Parliauwntarv papers woull be alter deducting the charges for eight years of the printer and stationer !

A most melancholy ac cident occurred on Saturday last, by which two yeung gentlemen at the Grammar School of King Edward V I - at Bromsgrove, have lost their lives. It appears that Parker, tio was about it, and t incbin, about is years ol age, went itfa a party oftheir'sckoolfellowsto bathe in the reservoir at Tanlebigg, which is nearly three miles from Bromsgrove. Parker, who wu an active swimmer, took Pinchin under his charge, and wu teaching him to strike out, when the latter Ktox Collkue, May 15.

But to 1 fir"' stone of the extensive new building to be erected in take aw ay the isatirs of country bankers is to them altogether adiflereM affair, inaanmch a it would greatly reduce their profits, and so, by placing them in a leas thriving condition, bring theu bearer to a state of inaolvency. With regard to their not regulating their issue by the state of the foreign exchanges, I conceive it impossible for them to do so. The state of the exchange is never perceptible in their locality, nor di tbey affect the state of trade or I rice. The taking away their promissory notes will nt prevent their eitenaion vf credit to good customers when exchange are adverse. It may be done by bills of exchange, cf which Sir Robert dies not think it ol any importance to take any notice. W farther tbey are important or not, or whether or ua they ar currency, he may inform himself by reference to the work of the late Mr. Leatbam, who states the enormous amount of them in circulation in the country as compared with that of bankers' promissory notes. Should rAr Robert attempt to limit the amount of bills of exchange, he would at once strike such a blow at the credit and cur - retcy of the country as that ue man living could see the extent of the ruinous consequences. Ia fact, the thing woeld be itopoaoble. Then way interfere with the promissory' note I The people generally are favourable to them ; they too w the partie issuing them, and they have confidence ia than - They look with suspicion oa Bank of England paper as liable to forgery ; aad should it become the sole lante of the country, forgers would be greatly encouraged by the facility of passing their fraudulent Imitation lie poor igwaraat come try people.

Ladies and gentlemen have, among the various heathen, their pet proselyte, jnst u among bird and dogs they have their pet uiacawa, ineir pet poodle. 11 is an adage old u truth wavwc roriBicr oi oinn wu not lost at in nooti that th human heart must love something : hence, beautiful is it, in this balmy month of May, to see crowds ol lover spiritual lover we mean ascending the crystal step of Exetcr - hall to testify thtir affection for the benighted sons and daughters of earth thousands and thousand of mile away. Elastic, indeed, are human heart - strings, for they stretch from pole to pole. Indeed, with many of me wonoy people oi ueter - naii distance is essential to love. Just u connoisseurs take a backward sten tmlw ta consider the beauties of a picture, do many of these good folks require distance to see the miseri - s of human nature through an attractive medium. They have no taste for the destitution of the alley that abut upon their dwelling - place, but how they glow how they kindle at the misery somewhere in Africa! Familiarity truly begets contempt. Th famishing shoe - binder or sempstress is a homely commonplace ; the benighted Chinese an exotic darling. With some folks sympathy, like Madeira, is all the better for a sea - voyage. We have said that proeelytcmonger have their special rets : among them, the Hebrew people bear a great price, lence. as wu shown at a late meetinir. unward of i(i(V are annually subscribed for the conversion of the Jews at Jerusalem, Hebron, Bejroat, Constantinople, Smyrna, and we a now not at now manv otner places nromisinff in anoataew We must confess we should like to see a fair balanc.iht i.f mis account, ue sbouid like to know the exact number f converted Hebrews, that we might arrive at something like me maraci price oi a renegade Jew. we own it ; we more than fear that he is a great luxury, a bird of Paradise of i. ceeding cost. Hence, we confrs it, we would Lave our genue countrywomen retrench their outlay on the foreign curiosity, that tbey might better afford to buy up somewhat of the misery produced at home. A day or two after the meeting was held of these benevolent people, whose hearts yearn for the Jews in Sapet and Struburgh, there appeared in the papers but then the tragedy happeaed at No. 1, Angel - court, Long - acre, not a quarter of a mile front Eieter - hall an account of the death of one Mary Wall, sged 35. She died famished. John Bitten, of SCMartin's workhouse, testified u follows t " On opening the dbr of a rvum on the round floor, or, mora properly rpainx, a law bee room, tbarw bains no C'or to II, h fixta - i the uaoaaod IjUi on ber far on tba aarta, ber bud eonnd with ihaiinis, aad her head nrlns'jbn ( - art vf aa old Uaki similar to a via - chanl s hamper, ttm. was xroaniog. and araued quiu maenablc Mr. Leonard, surgeon to the out - door poor of St. Martin's, deposed " On bauut taken to the worVhouas, remedies wen aed to rotor uwnatx - a ; but aba nene rallied, aad died wiihin it boon aftar.

The dwellers of Eog'ish lanes and alleys are common, vulgar thingscreatures of foul and violent 3 leech, commonplace in their very rags and ghutlinese, utthe Jews the spiritually forlorn of Jerusalem! Oh! the evangelical imagination clothes them with the mystic beauty of the place, uplifts and sublimates them by the magic of religious fervour, and the very tatters of the Hebrew become rare and beautiful as Joseph' coat of many colours. And so soft - hearted ladies and gentlemen, rapt by the for - lomness of the far - off Jew", write their checks, or put their money in the plate, too deliriously possessed by thesweet apostate in the distance ever to dream of the famishing Christian at their right head. Could we but transport our desti tute population to China or to Africa, we have no doubt that many Eaglish Samaritans would then be marvellously piteous of them. Oh, ve miserable Christians, who hunger and waste unvisited in English laa and cellars. why ar ye not Jews, glorified by distance, dwelling at Beyrout and xicuron i Even religion to some people is more attractive when invested with a certain air of romance. The modern missionary is, to some folks, picturesque as wu the Templar nuigat oi oiu. 10 oe sure, ne goe not lortn to alar the un. believer ; but happier condition ot the world to make proselyte.

And every gentlewoman who gives a guinea to the goodly fund is soft. ened and upraised by the thought that she has her soldier of peace fighting in Palestine ; and with such sufficing belief she may give a chicken wing to Bijou, her dog, even though a Christian mother shall whine with hunger at her gate.

She wu going to leave at May - day, but there wu no cause for her leaving. Did not know she waa ia the family - way. Recollects her being ill some time back. She asked him to send for Mrs. Kirman to come, but afterwards ! said she would rather have her sister sent for, which was done. On Thursday last he wu very iljand had been in bed all day. Deceased came to hit room door at nignt, and suted that she meant to go away in the morning early, and not come back again. He said if he was better, he was going to Lincoln in the morning, and he would have her things sent. She then threw her keys into the room, and went away.

This being the whole of the evidence, the Coroner, in summing up, observed, that in the first place it wu proved that the death of the deceased wu caused by poison, and that she had administered it to herself. The cause for such an act wu the next thing to be inquired into. After a lengthened and most difficult inquiry, toe suspicions existing of her having had a child were at last confirmed by the evidence ol the sister, a also the fact of her having concealed the birth. Had the child not have been discovered. the fatal act would not, most probably, have been committed; for when told by the servant of her having seen something which had made her ill, she changed colour and left the kitchen. After the discovery of the child, it had remained all day in the same place, but a few hours after the deceased wu informed of its having been found, it had been by some one removed. The brst point which would present itself wa. wu the child which wu found that to which the deceased had given birth t Secondly, u there wu net one tittle of evidence of previous insanity, whether the discovery of the concealment had produced any temporary derangement, or whether the fear of detection had caused the commission of suicide !

The solicitor said he wu aware of the fact. Sir P. Lai ail desired to be informed under what or cumstaace the cat alluded to appeared before the Grand Jury! The solicitor declared, that he believed th defendant sal wholly ignorant of the particulars, but it wa conjectured that a letter, written by the defendant, containing matter presumed to be libellous, and calculated to do injury tt a amined the child, and he wu decidedly of opinion that it J individual reflected upon, had beea laid before the Grud aaa oeen corn auve. uaa tested tae lungs, but did not Jury, aaa a rely upon that.

Sir, In my last communication (14th nit) I mentioned the very unusual absence of the " north - east " wind, which generally hu prevailed during the "Marsh" moon, and I drew the notice of your readers to the circumstance of the division of the Red Sea ; I should have added, that th plague of Egypt were generated by this wind, and were removed by a " strong south - weet wind." Thi year the easterly wind appear to have followed the "April" moon, which wu in it first quarter upon the 25th ef that month, when my record commences with the lower current being nrwInt Irnm th .. h;t. .1. a.. WZT true bill found, and that a warrant wa about to be issued for the apprehension of th accused. That was the state of the caw, u had been by torn mean r other ascertained by the defendant, who wu connected by ties of blood with the oomplainanLTn fonner.upon hearing that th bill of indictment had been found, wu advised to seep set of the way until the accessary arrangements should be sad to meet the accusation. Sir 1'. lacaia declared, that he felt gratification at th ap pearance at an opportunity for exciting the observanost of practical men on a subject of such vast importance to th community u th grand jury system. Mr. Clark, the clerk of the arraigns, than whom no man wu a higher authority with regard to the working ot the system, wu mott deciedly of opinion that no man wu safe who wu subjected 10 th operation of such a power. He entirely agreed in the views of that excellent officer, and considered that there should to se intermediate authority between the committing magistral arid the trial of ue accused. To say nothing of ths intolerable inconvenience and expense, the penenioa of jutc frequently resulting from the temptation which presented themselves to person liable to be tampered with ia the interval between a charge aad the nreferrina - of a hill was most frightful.

Meanwhile, for ourselves we confess it w have more than a sneaking respect fer a people who had Moses for a leader and a lawgiver. We rarely meet a long - bearded Rabbi that he does not carry our thouhia is. plains of Mamre to the first patriarchs of the first nation. And ye. who would convert the Jews, first codv th Jw great virtue : first take care of your own poor; feed and clothe inem, aaa wen, u jvu wu, wiu uie supernuity mace proselyte of the Hebrew. Meanwhile, with misery wasting thousands of ear feJlow - Chriatlant atour very doors, we hold the subecriDtion of large sums of money for. at heat, th questionable conversion of th Jew, u the offering of a miserable, morbid egotism ; and should still think to of the purpose, though the whole bench of bishop wagged their arvrr tongue ia ara 01 ss. H measure now hefnr u house namely, the Registration tor Ireland Bill, the Commons Enclosure Bill, and the Twelve Hours' Factory Bill. A van wu used u a platform, on which there were tome half doien speakers, of whom Mr. Feargus O'Connor wu the chief. The chair having been taken at 7 o'clock, MrM'DoneU proposed a resolution and the adoption of a petition based upon the principles of the Charter, but more especially praying that the Registration for Ireland Bill, u proposed by Lord Eliot, might not pa into a law, u th provisions of the bill were calculated to curtail the privileges which ought to be enjoyed by th community at large. Mr. O'Connor addressed the meeting at great length, aad dwelt very forcibly upon the hardship endured by factory women and children, and called upon those assembled to use their best endeavours in relic vine; that unfortunate das of labourers from the yoke which they laboured under. The speaker then referred to the other subject set down for discussion, aad contended that the only effectual remedy for the evil wu the msking the Charter the law of Ihe land. Another resolution aad a second petition were afterward sooved tad adopted, which, however, varied little in prtaca - pton the first, aad totae time after nnjit the taecting thing should be done to show the necessity cf rroBtt ' interference of Government to remedy the grievance. air r. taenia.
