To the Editor of the Hami-shire Telegram. Sir, -In perusing the report of the London Papers the late Trials at Winchester, my attention has been called to one of them of great importance, namely, that Mr. William Pudwick, of Hayling island, against Davis, a poor Emsworth Fisherman, respecting the right of fishery in Langstone and Chichester Harbours. 11ns cause has excited great interest, from the peculiar circumstances connected with it, and I cannot help congratulating my fellow Townsmen and the Inhabitants of Hayling Island, Havnnt, and Emsworth in particular, upon the successful issue.

This success is to be attributed to the assistance given by the learned Counsel, Sir. oewell and Mr. Rawlinson, as well as by Messrs. Howard and Parnell, the respectable Solicitors of this Town, who undertook the management of the cause at very short notice. To the clear and able manner in which Mr.

Justice Cresswell summed up, the lasting gratitude of the puor Emsworth and Langstone Fishermen is due, who will now return to their lawfuloccupa-tions, and set at defiance the future threats of the Plaintiff, who has entailed upon them so much misery.

MARCH 4, 1844. We have reason to believe that her Majesty contemplates, during (lie ensuing scasjn, a prolonged resilience in the Isle of Wight.

Neguciations have, we are informed, been for some time in progress to secure for her Majesty's use an appropriate residence upon the coast, so situate that it might afford the means of rapid communication by railway with the metropolis, and at the same time possess those facilities tor yachting and aquatic amusements in which Brighton is eminently deficient. Within the last few days, we believe, Osborne-housc, near Clowes, the seat of Lady Isabella Blachford, has been selected for the Royal accommodation and should it be found sufficiently commodious, it will probably be taken at first only for a limited period, but with the right to purchase ut a fixed price at the expiration of the term. It is hinted that in this case a bill will be brought forward in Parliament to enable the Crown to dispose of the Brighton Pavilion. Times. Exports to Brazil.

Lord Lvndhurst has introduced into the Upper House of Parliament a Bill entitled An Act to consolidate the jurisdiction and improve the practice of the Ecclesiastical Courts of Enghmd and Wale, and for otherwise altering and amending the law in certain matters ecclesiastical." It consists of 101 clauses, and appears to be founded on the Keport 01 tile Ecclesiastical Commission. By the the provisions of this bill, all peculiar jurisdictions are abolished, and merged in the respective archdeaconries dioceses. The Archidiaconal Courts (with the exception of Cornwall, Leicester, Nottingham, and Suffolk) are deprived of the power to grant probates or administrations and marriage licenses.

The diocesan courts, however, are allowed to retain their full powers, it being optional with the judge or either of the parties to the suit to sond to the Court of Arches. Licenses are abolished and compensation is provided for loss of emoluments, Acting deputies are to become principals, and to be paid by salaries, to be fixed by the judges of the respective courts, out ot a fee fund to which all fees (sc. are to be carried. The amount of salary is subject to the approbation of the Lords of her Majesty's Treasury. The Act is not to extend to tithes within the city of London.

Among the 178,000,000 individuals who inhabit fiurope, there are said to be 17,900,000 beggars, or persons who subsist at the expellee of the community without contributing to its resources.

Gateshead Observer. Constituency of England and Scotland.

On Saturday a Parliamentary paper was issued, giving a good deal of information respecting the registered electors of England, Wales, and Scotland, showing the increase in 1842-3, as compared with 1839-40. It appears that the grand total of registered electors for Great Britain in 1842 was 941,782, and that in 1839 the total was 907,903. In Scotland the total was in the same period 85,244, and 82,531 making together a total increase in 1842-3, as compared with 1839-40, of 33,394 electors. To Ripen Nev Stilton Cheese.

In three weeks' time you will find the advantage of your inoculation, as the cheese will be completely impregnated with a ripe flavour. Epicure' Almanack. Case of Supposed Trance. During the past week seyeral eminent professional gentlemen, from the London hospitals, have been down to Deptford to watch this extraordinary case and, on Saturday, Mr. Bransby Cooper and other gentlemen pronounced that decomoosition hod taken place.

On Friday one of the family told Mr. Hope, of Deptford-bridgc, that perspi. ration had been felt at the back of the head, and the report becoming current great anxiety was felt in the neighbourhood. Shortly afterwards, however, Mr. Langley arrived, and expressed an unqualified opinion that decomposition was going on, but there was not the slightest effluvium from the body.

On Saturday it was further apparent. Mr. Langley was decidedly of opinion that the deceased died instantaneously from enlargement of the heart the case, however, was extraordinary. He had had one case within his own practice, where a man who had died from intoxication laid for twenty-four dnys without a change (Francis had laid twenty-eight days). All.

the medical men agreed that it was a most remarkable case. 1 GIPSIES. (From Freeman's Magazine. A stalwart, honest, good-humoured labourer was my young gipsy. If he loved anything supereminently, it was schnapps next to that, he had an affection for a pretty giri called Zulnicq, who came from Hungary; and who, having never lived in a house, was fearful of uniting her fate with niy friend Czatoschek, who possessed a hut with a roof to it, lest the confinement and the new habits of life attendant on it, shonld ieause her death.

Czatoschek amused mc greatly with his descriptions of Zulnicq but he interested me still more uy his tales and reminiscences of old gipsy life. The number of his brethren in Bohemia is now but small; in his grandfather's time they formed a very large and menacing body. Plena omnia gypso One of their yery strange methods of taking posses, diou of a district was to appear in it totally naked, and thus drive the more delicate inhabitants from the neighbourhood; they would thus brave (he terrors of a Bohemian winter, as hardy as the monks in Russiamentioned by the great Lord Bacon, who, for penance, ti'ould sit a whole night of mid-winter in a vessel full of water, till they were more inextricably frozen in than was the brewer of Brentford's steamer in Boothia Feliz. Strangers who saw them at early dawn," said Caato-schek, rising naked from their couch on the bare ground, thought the Resurrection had commenced so gaunt, grisly, and ghastly was the appearance they made. But they were soon convinced," added he, those who tarried to watch them, that their business was more at present to commit violence than to be judged for it and the curious often paid dearly enough for what they saw or strove to see." "And conclude" said that such a life was death to them." Death," exclaimed the gipsy, they would never have died had not the accursed law slain them." He thrust his hand deep into the bocom of an under vest, and taking thence a soiled piece of leather, which enclosed a time-coloured and time-worn square of paper, he placed the latter in my hands.

There." said he, is the instru ment which cleared Bohemia and Saxony of my ancestors, the sons of the spirit. My own great grandfather tore it from the church door, when he was liable to he shot like a wolf for simply appearing there asitwas, they only chopped his hands oif, and burnt him alive for having touched their temple wit!) his polluted fingers. May misery cling, to the last veneration. round the souls and bodies of the descendants of all who were concerned in conceiving or executing the wrong that was done to my fathers 1 took the paper from the hand of my not too Christian-like companion, and I thought he might have put an additional qualifying before his grandfather, as I read the words and date," Most gracious decree, a.D. 1722." This decree went on to inform the Saxons, that a band of gipsies, amounting to 1500 men, had lately withdrawn from Hesse, and taken refuge in the Thuringian Forest.

These," said the exceedingly gracious decree, with all their possessions and valuables, are not only given up as prizes, prey, and plunder, to all Christian men, but all good Saxon subjects are strictly enjoined to shoot them down wherever they may be found, or in any other ay slay thein and for this no man shall call any of our loving subjects in question. On the contrary wherever and whenever these robbers appear, we command all good men and true to strike the church and alarum bells, and the militia and Iagerey may assemble, and unite with all faithful citizens, in hunting down, and doing these heathen bandits to death."

"leap-year. Thursday, the 29th. February, being what termed the intercalary day, and rendering- the year Bissextile or leap year, the following origin of the intercalary may uot be unacceptable to our readers ancient Hebrew months consisted of thirty days each, excepting: the la8t, which contained thirty-five. has the year contained 305 days. An intercalary month at the cud of 120 years supplied the difference.

Athenian months consisted of thirty and twenty-nine daw alternately, according to the regulation of Solon. This calculation produced a year of 354 days, a little more than oue-third. But as a solar month contains thirty days, teu hours, twenty-nine minutes, Meton, to reconcile the difference between the solar lunar year, added several embolismic or intercalary months, during' a cycle, or a revolution of nineteen years. The Roman months, in the time of Romulus, were only teu of thirty and thirtv-ono days. tuna Pompilius, sensible of the great deficiency of computation, added two months, tuid made a year 355 clays.

The Egyptians had fixed the length of then- year to 355 days. Julius Cieear, who was well acquainted with the learning of the Egyptians, was first who attained to any accuracy on the subject. Finding the year established by Numa ten days shorter than the solar year, Julius Ctesar supplied the difference, fixed the length of the year to be 365 days, six hours, and regulated the months accordiug to the present measure. To allow for the six odd hours, he added an intercalary day, every fourth year, to the month of February, reckoning the twenty-fourth of that mouth twice, which year must, of course, cou-sist of 368 days, and is called leap year. From him it was denominated the Julian year.

This year is also called Bissextile in the almanacs, aud the day addd is termed the intercalary day. The Romans, as has been observed, inserted the intercalary, by reckoning' the '24th twice, and because the 24th of February, in their calendar, was called sexto calendas mairii, the second sixth of the calends of March, and hence the year of intercalation had the appellatiou of Bissextile. We introduce iu leap year a new day in the same mouth, namely, the 29th. Notwithstanding this, the Julian year continued iu general use till the year 1582, when Pope Gregory XIII. reformed the cutting ten days betwen the 4th and 15th of October in that year, and calling the 5th of that month the 15th.

This alteration of the style was gradually adopted through the greater part of Europe, and the year was afterwards called the Gregorian year, or New Style. this country the method of reckoning accordiug to New Style was not admitted into our calendars until the year 1752, when the error amounted to nearly eleven days, which were taken from the month of September, by calling the 3rd of that month the 14th. The error amounting to one whole day in about 130 years (by makitig every fourth year leap-year), it is settled by an act of Parliament that the vear 1800 and tne year lyuo, which, according to the rule above given, are leap years, shall be computed as common years, having only 305 days in each and that everv four hundredth year also. If this method be adhered the present mode of reckoning will not vary a single day from true time in less than 5,000 years. The beginning of the year was also changed, by the same of Parliament, from the '25th of 'March to the 1st January, so that the succeeding- months of January, February, and March, up to the 24th day, which would, by the Old Style, have been reckoned part of the year 1752, were accounted as the first three months the year 1753.

Heuce we sfe such a date as this, January 1, 1757-8, or February 3, 1764-5; that is, according to the Old style it was 1764, but according to the New 1705, because now the year begins in January instead of March. SATURDAY. MARCH 1844. The Hants Assizes, at Winchester, terminated Wednesday, leaving two Special Jury Cases as remnants for the Summer Assizes. Had it not been, foi the unusually light state of the Calendar, with as it regarded crime, as well asjthe number of the prisoners, may more must have been made remenets.

Three Special Jury Cases, which nearly occupied the whole of Monday and Tuesdny, tried in the Crown Court, by Mr. Justice Cresswell, which called the Cause List to be clear, with thetwo exceptionswehavementioned. The Judges left for Salisbury on Wednesday about one o'clock, where the Calendar is a very heavy one. In our report, last week, of the case, Rumbold v. King, it was erroneously stated, that a Verdict was gived for the Plaintiff by consent, with damages to the amount ot 5W(.

i netaet is, tne cause was reierred to the Arbitration of Mr. Elliott, and the reference took Elace at the George Inn, Winchester, on Monday last, ut no award is yet made. The Assize Commission for the county of Wilts was opened at Salisbury on Thursday, by Mr. Justice Cresswell, who immediately afterwards proceeded to the Cathedral and attended divine service. The calendar contains the names of nearly 100 prisoners for trial, two of whom are charged with murder, several with manslaughter, and some with maliciously wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

At the first County Court of the High Sheriff of Hants, holden on the 28th February, Mr. Archibald Low, Solicitor, St. George's-square, Pottsea, was appointed Deputy Sheriff for taking replevyns. On Sunday last, the Mayor, 0. Seagrirn, gave a public breakfast to the members of the Corporation and his friends, previous to attending Divine Service at the Cathedral.

He also, in his capacity of Under Sheriff of the County, as well as Mayor, gave the Javelin Men a breakfast. The Fusilier Guards, who have been for the last six month's in our barracks, left on Friday per Railway, for London. They were on the same day, replaced by the 1st battalion of Grenadier Guards, who will remain here till September next. The battalion of Grenadier Guards, now here, is 800 strong, and with the 44th nearly fills the birracks. The Winchester Philharmonic Society gave their third and last Concert of Sacred Music, at St.

John's Rooms, on Thursday. The principal Vocal Performers were Miss Poole and Miss Marshall, from the London Concerts, with Messrs. Leach and Cooper provincial singers, who have before assisted at these Concerts. The different solos, trios, which were selec tions trom the Works ot Handel, Mozart, and ilendel-shon, were executed with much taste and effect, and the Chorusses well sustained. The audiences, as in the two former occasions, was very numerous and respectable.

During the past week the Trustees of St. John's Hospital have appointed Mr. Vyse, an old and decayed tradesman of this city, to a vacancy in that excellent institution. There are now, we hear, 24 inmates of both sexes in the establishment, who receive weekly, besides their lodgings, 10s. in money, besides occasion ally coals and in a few years a considerable increase in the numDer ot tne inmates may DerecKoneo.

An Inquest was taken by Mr. Todd, on Monday last, at Botley, on" view of the body of the new. born female child of Susan Haslar, a singlewoman residing with her parents at Hedge-end in that Parish, the birth of which had taken place under extraordinary and suspicious circumstances. The investigation occupied several hours, and terminated in a verdict" That the said child was born alive, and that its death was occasioned soon afterwards by hemorrhage andexposuve to the cold, without any wilful violence or injury'received from the said Susan Haslar, or any other person whomsoever." Accident on the South Western Railway.

On Friday morning a serious accident occurred to a man emnloyed on this railway, at the Bishop's Stoke station. It appears the duty of the man was to attach, by means of a rope drawn by a horse, the carriages for the Gosport train on to the engine of the latter, when he was thrown between the rails, the carriages passing over one of his hands which was lying across the rail, completely shattering two of his fingers. The poor feilow was conveyed to Winchester by the next train, when amputation was deemed necessary, which was performed by Mr. H. Lyford, and we are glad to hear he is doing as well as can be expected.
