THE MULL PACKET AND EAST RIDING TIMES, 6 ISSUE OF MACAULA.Y-S HISTORY; HULL POLICE COURT. about seven years or upwards, had a weekly account at a grocer's shop the boy was sent for the goodB the amount of the account had for some time past surprised the father (who is keeper at an asylum), but he had perfect confidence in the shopkeeper. He, however, closed the account, and began to deal with another shop, and for ready money only. The boy was Sent with money, but went to the old shop to get the goods on credit.

It was believed that one or two other persons incited him to the evil deeds, and received the plunder, giving him only coppers for his pay. Remanded. GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. Inconvenient Ancestry. It is dangerous to refer too much to pedigrees.

Sir Arthur Wardour proved something more than the antiquity of his family when he cited the name of his ancestor in the Ragman Roll. A claim was recently made to the public on behalf of a gentleman who is related to Defoe; a very illustrious relationship. It 13, however, curious to read in the chronicle of the Annual Register for 1771, page 65, another record of the Defoe family. January Id. The following convicts were executed at Tyburn pursuant to their sentence viz.

Mark Marks, for a street-robbery, which he denied to the last Thomas Hand, for firing a pistol and wounding Joseph Holloway, with intent to kill and John Clerk and Joseph Defoe for robbing Mr. Fordyce of a gold watch and some money. This last is said to be a grandson of the celebrated Daniel Defoe, who wrote the True-born Englishman, Robinson Crusoe, Colonel Jack, and other ingenious pieces." "February Fill Dyke," and the "Month of Suicides." We have been accustomed to attach much value to proverbs and traditions in respect to physical phenomena, on the reasonable impression that they have been the results of cumulative observation. February fill dyke" has long given that month the reputation of being a very wet one. Such, however, is not the fact.

By a table of observations at Greenwich, covering a space of thirty-five years, in a pamphlet lately published by Mr. Belville, of the Royal Observatory there, it would seem that, on an average of that period, less rain fell in February than in any month of the year. Our readers will perhaps be equally surprised to learn that the wettest month was October. We believe the same results were arrived at by Professor Phillips in East YoikBhire, and are given in his very interesting works on the rivers aud mountains of that county but we have not the book at hand to refer to. As unexpected may be other reBiiltB from the Greenwich table.

It would seem that 40 per cent, more rain falls in the latter six months of the year than in the former ones. Average, first six months 10.39 second 14.39 of London, lying on the south side of the Queen's-dook, and stealing three sovereigns, the property of Captain Rodgers, the master thereof, aud Collinson as being accessory to the theft P. C. Clarke deposed that on Sunday night he apprehended Collinson on the charge of being in company of another lad who had robbed a schooner. He accompanied Collinson to some lodgings in South-street, where he found Falkner in bed, and charged him with robbing his master of three sovereigns.

He said that Collinson had persuaded him to do so, and that he had given Collim on half of the money. He then told Falkner to give up what money he had, and that prisoner said it was all in his trousers pocket. Witness took thereout a paper containing 3s. and asked if that was all. Falkner said he put a sovereign into the paper before he went to bed.

Collinson then acknowledged that he had extracted the sovereign from Falkner's pocket while he was asleep he produced the sovereign and gave it up. Remanded till Thursday. Christmas Carnival. Four Irish people were brought in during the sitting of the court, having been just apprehended on suspicion of having stolen two fowls (dressed), a piece of beef, some butter, tea and coffee, from various tradesmen on Saturday night. They gave their names Bartholomew Callinan, a man about 30 years of age Ellen O'Shannesey, a woman apparently about 50 Bridget Callinan, and Ellen Delaney.

P.O. Pearson deposed that about nine o'clock this morning he was called into a lodging-house in Mill-street, where one of the lodgers charged these four with having stolen all the goods produced. The prisoners gave a variety of contradictory statements concerning their possession of the goods, and as he had previously received information of some such goods having been stolen, he took them into custody, but had not had time to proeare the attendance of the parties who had been robbed. Remanded till Thursday. The Case fob the Poor-law Boabd.

Mr. Travis observed that he had received a letter from Mr. Wing, relieving-ofncer to the Hull workhouse, respecting the case that was before the court on Saturday. The writer 6tated that he had inquired at the Soulcoates Union concerning that case, aud found that the woman (the pauper) had misled him to some extent that he did not think he would be justified in laying it before the Poor-law Board, and therefore did not intend to press it further. Mr.

Travis said he thought it right to state this publicly, as the matter had been publicly before the court. At the same time, he did not yet understand how it was that one of the paupers of Sculcoates was sent from the Sculcoates Union-house to conduct an applicant for relief from that house to the workhouBe of Holy Trinity parish at nine o'clock at night. The first time Mr. Wing comes here" (added Mr. Travis), I will make him explain that to me, or I shall write to the Poor-law Board myself on the subject.

I will not allow things to go on any longer in this way. For poor people to be bandied about at nine o'clock at night from one workhouse to another is not right and I will not let this matter drop unless some very satisfactory reason be shewn to me." Cardinal Wiseman denies having been appointed Librarian of the Vatican. It is stated that Mr: Seymour Clarke, formerly the superintendent of the Great Western Railway, has been offered by government the poBt of Chief CommisBioaer of Railways, at a salary of 3,000 a-year. Cdrious Christmas Custom. At Dewsbury a bell is tolled on Christmas-eve, as at a funeral, or in the manner of pasaing bell and any one asking whose bell it was would be told it was the Devil's knell.

The moral of this is that the Devil died when Christ was born. The custom waB discontinued for many years, but was revived by the vicar in 1828. Among the sweet bells of Dewebury is the famous Black Tom of Tot-hill," whioh is said to have been an expiatory gift for a murder. BriJgevxiter Times. Mr.

Charles Diokens, although declining any public testimonial, consented to receive from the hands of the Mayor of Sheffield, on Saturday evening last, at the conclusion of his reading of the Christmas Carol, but in a strictly private manner, ai handsome present of Sheffield cutlery. The Darlington Board of Health is authorised to purchase from the Bishop of Durham the town-hall, shambles, market tolls, The evidence as to their value, received by the arbitrator, varied from 5,000 to 12000- The grand jury at the late Yorkshire assizes expressed an opinion that no sufficient cause had been shewn for removing the assizes to Wakefield or any other town. A singularly appropriate mural monument has just been erected in York Cathedral "by the surviving officers of the 51st King's Own Light Infantry (the second regiment of the West-Riding of Yorkshire), to the memory of Major W.

The monument consists of an officer in full dress and uncovered, leaning on his sword, and looking down upon the oap of another officer of the same regiment.

At the base of the monument the names of, all the sergeants, corporals, and privates, who fell at Burmah, are arranged in five columns under the inscription, If in this life only we have hope, we are of ail men most miserable." The old regimental colours have been presented to the Dean aud Chapter; they are in a tattered condition, and old, having been many times borne in battle during the Peninsular and Burmese wars, when victory crowned the British arms. They are now placed in the minster vestry. Private Brown, of the llth Hussars, has just Bent home to his widowed mother, in York, a silver medal, which he had received in the Crimea for distinguished services, and also a remittance of 6 being the third remittance made to her within fourteen months. The Rev. Thomas Myers, late of York, has been enlightening the Railway Reading Society" in that city with a paper on the Nineveh Discoveries," concluding with a few remarks on the benefits of such societies to working and practical men.

The thanks of Changes in the House oi? Commons. Several new members will take their seats on the opening of parliament next month, and some writs will be moved for as soon as the house assembles. Mr. James Rust will take the oaths and his seat for Huntingdonshire, in the room of Viscount Mandeville, now Duke of Manchester; the Earl of Gifford succeeds Lord Seymour at Totness, the noble lord having become Duke of Somerset Capt, Joliffe will take his seat for Wells, in the room of Mr. Tudway, deceased Sir Charles Napier succeeds to the representation of Southwark, vacant by the death of Sir William Molesworth Mr.

Rumbold, who has intimated his intention of withdrawing from parliamentary life. The Ballot. Colonel Coryton, in replying to the toast of "The Army and Navy," at a recent meeting of the Callington Agricultural Association, said he believed the ballot must be adopted if recruiting did not go on faster than it had. The Cornwall Rangers, of which regiment he was the Colonel, ought to have been 1,017 men strong; it, however, only numbered on the 12th 209 men, and an order came down that they were to get as many men as possible to enlist in the regulars. Sixty-one volunteered for the Marines, 12 for the navy, and-13 others who volunteered were found too Bmall.

At that moment therefore there were only 139 men in the Rangers. He believed that there were large numbers who would enlist in the army if they could tell what to do with their wives and families. That formed a matter for serious consideration, for they might depend upon it, if the war lasted, that the ballot would be resorted to, and then they would all be liable to serve. nwmuer qj ine ISlue and Fellow Long as it is we feel it impossible to resist extr the following laughable burlesque of MacaulayW 1 8 It is in its way as good as any of the p- ej Addresses. "ejected The volumes are out.

The publishing day passedov without disturbance. The regulations of Messrs Lcm man were received with submission. Discontent wf hushed. Malignity was silenced. The demand for copies was unprecedented.

Five and twenty thousand were sold the first day, at the subscription price of twenty-five shillings and sixpence per copy. For greater convenience the work was issued from the binder's. The establishment of the Westleys is situated in that region of narrow courts and sinuouB lanea bounded on the south by Ludgate-hill, on the north bv Newgate-street, on the west by the Old Bailey on the eaBt by Paul's Change. The immediate neighbourhood has been chiefly famous for slaughter-houses. Hence forth it will be classic ground.

To this spot 'the eve of the New Zealander, when he stands on the ruined arch of London -bridge, will turn with reverence. The hiatorv-will be the delight of the world when England shall have returned to its primseval wildnees and foxeR burrow in every hill aud wolveB howl on every plain The morning of the i7th of December was obscured by mist. The sun of genius was enough for that dav Regardless of fog and mud, every bookseller's shop sent forth its porter or errand-boy. Many were provided with new bags, lest the weight of their burdens Bhould burst through the old ones. A majority were shod with high-lows a larger proportion still ware corduroys.

They acted without concert, bat aB they approached the narrow enclosure of Warwick-square it seemed that only concert could have brought so vast a multitude together. Some timid shopkeepers put up their shutters. The publicans, bolder and more politic, threw open their doors, stood behind their bars, and served all comers with glass or pot. The crowd increased every minute. By nine o'clock the inclosure was filled, and as the tide of life came pouring in the aspect of affairs became alarming.

A vague sentiment of fear was entertained. No one could tell what might happen. An accident had nearly led to a collision which might have been attended with serious consequences. The dustman on his daily round found himself impeded hi the execution of his duty. He rang his bell violently to clear a passage.

The crowd received this manifestation of authority with derisive shouts. He attempted to lead hiB horse forward, but fortunately the animal was lame. Two policemen, with a superintendent iu command, at this moment came up to the spot. Acting oh the instructions they had received, or led away by popular impulse, they turned the horse's head towards Newgate-street. The dustman sullenly submitted to his defeat, and the dustbins of Warwick-square were unemptied that day.

Meanwhile the pressure at the doors of the binding-house was tremendous. The crowd kicked, knocked, pushed, jeered, catcalled, and bonnetted, but these demonstrations were merely the effervescence of good-humour. Their patience was invincible. A Scotch youth as was conjectured by his red hair and high cheek bones was the first to gain admittance. His order was instantly executed.

He returned with his precious burden in triumph. The book was out. After this the stock was delivered with rapidity. There was no more fear of riot. The three policemen marched from the ground.

But up to a late honr in the afternoon the demand continued with unabated activity. The postman of Paternoster-row will long remember that FRIDAY. Hesgvs.TDownes and Hudson, charged on the information of Mr. Reckitt, porter merchant, with a breach of the bye laws, were found guilty judgment respited. George Bolton, the disorderly apprentice of John Collinson, w9 found guilty and judgment respited.

George Fraukish. sued for wages by John Bayes, was ordered to pay 8s. 3d. and costs. Dennis Rowland was charged by police constable Coulson with having stolen lead in his possession.

Remanded. SATURDAY. The Green Eve of Jealosy. Thonias Crake was brought up in custody under a warrant, at the instance of Mr. Addey, relieving officer to the Hull Workhouse, charged with neglecting to maintain his-wife and infant child a little girl aged four months.

The defendant was a tall, slender young man, of decent appearance, stated to have an income averaging about 30s. per week, derived partly from commissions and partly from a regular stipend from a merchant in whose employ he was. The plaintiff was an active-looking young woman, attired, and of firm but modest demeanour. Mr. Stead appeared for complainant.

The defendant denied the charge said he had not left his wife, but she had left him, and when the relieving officer came to him he said he would not do anything for her unless she returned to him. He had therefore not refused to Maintain her on the contrary, he had provided a nice place for her and invited her to it, and since they separated she had been with him at all hours of the night, and all sortsof places Mr. Stead observed that one tale was good until another was told The relieving officer then proved that the wife had been relieved once, on Tuesday last, and the warrant immediately procured against her busband Mrs. Crake was" next placed in the box she had lived separate from her husband about twelve months. That previous to leaving him he had repeatedly displayed a most ungovernable temper, so much so as to render her residence with him unsafe.

He had smashed to pieces the time piece and other articles had taken a 'knife and drawn it across her throat, and afteT that brought loaded pistols into the house, and said he would do for her." Sba had horne with these things, and did not wish to name them lo others he had twice told her that he did this only in nonsense, but still such things were dangerous. The Season why she did not make a complaint, was she thought ho would be better ultimately she was compelled to leave him owing to his violence. Since then he had repeatedly threatened her. Mr. Travis Why did you not return to him? Plaintiff: I did not think it safe.

Shortly after I was confined I saw him, and lie told me I must remember it was his natural he could not help it, and could not alter it and that if I lived with him he would treat me the same as he had done. With reference to the remark of the defendant, in which lie seemed to insinuate that they had been living together again as man and wife since they separated, the wife deposed I have been repeatedly with him, but never late at night once I went to shew him the cliild. He has told me several times he would take another woman to live with him. I don't know whether he- has done so. I don't know where he lodges now.

When I shewed him the babe, he desired me to come back and live with him, and promised to restrain his temper. I told him it would be well if ho was always in that mood, but I would wait three or four weeks to see how he maintained it. When I saw him the next day he was as bad as ever. He then said I must not expect him to be any better. As to having been with any other man which has insinuated he has not the sliehtest proof of any Mean annual rain 24.78 The same sort of mistake was made with regard to November, the month of suicides statistics have shown that the greater number of suicides occur in the summer months lax business and debilitating heats being more intolerable than fogs.

Spectator. Extraordinary Meteor. The extraordinary meteor seen near Nottingham on the morning of the 19th as mentioned in a letter in Tiie Times of Saturday last, appearB to have been seen also in Yorkshire.

At the WEDNESDAY.

Christmas Amusements. Three boys, named Fred. Johnson (son of the late B. L. Johnson, John Shaw, and John Seaton, of the ages of 13, 13, and 14, were brought up by P.

C. 55, Hiram Wright, who stated that on Christmas morning, being on duty in Carlisle-street, he heard a noise in West-street, and going towards the place from whence it proceeded, he saw the three prisoners knocking down a piece of spout. He pursued them up South-street, into an entry, and there captured them, one of thorn having the broken piece of spout in his possession Mr. MoMamis informed the magistrate that the matter before the court was a custom in the borough of Hull, so prevalent on Chriat-mas-day morning, that it was found necessary to have on duty the whole of the police foroe, both night-men were matting fcueu- iueu- euipioyjliein wnen tne scene was observed. A round figure, resembling a ball of fire, made its appearance in the heavens and darted perpendicularly with terrific rapidity towards the earth, ultimately Bhaping itself in the form of a long pole.

For a short time it continued in the former Bhapo, and for several seconds longer in the latter, and afterwards vanished without making any audible noise. The illumination it rendered was brilliant beyond description, affording sufficient light to the naked eye to observe the smallest object on the ground. Immediately after its disappearance the eyesight of the persons who witnessed it was for a short time rendered useless by the sudden transition from light to darkness. One person passing Hoyle-mill at the time thought he was in danger of the fire falling on his head. Another person ascending Burton-bank, possessed a similar idea, as did also a man who was passing Oak-mill-bar, on the Pontefract-road.

It appears to have made its appearance near the centre of the above-named localities. This singular meteor was alBO seen by several persons in Leeds." The Photestant Defence of Londonderry. The following graphic sketch of the ever-memorable court-house, LeedB, on Saturday last, before two of the magistrates of that borough, Mr. Lewis, of London, as a corporation, patronize the Christmas-eve holiday of Monday last, but the announcement for the entire closing of their places of business was signed by 200 heads of firms. Two militiamen in York barracks, named Ruehen Reed aud Michael Brannan, have been committed for trial at the next assizes on a charge of committing a garotte robbery in that city.

Reed has previously been similarly tried and acquitted. Churoe Education. At the second annual meeting of the York branch of the Church of England Education Society, held last week in the De Grey Rooms, Thomas Basil Woodd, M.P., chairman, stated that the York association had subscribed316 since the formation of the society, thus coming up nearly to Manchester and Liverpool, whioh subscribe not quite 400. and are the solicitor, appeared on the part of the Commissioners in ljunacy, and preterred a cnarge or torgery against mx. W.

R. Wilkinson, assistant to Mr. R. G. Horton, of Leeds, surgeon.

It appeared that on the 3rd of November last the defendent signed a certificate with Mr. Horton's name, alleging that he (Mr. Horton) had attended ajyoung woman named Ann Ash, daughter of a publican at Swillington, near Leeds, and that she was insane and that upon this certificate, and another one largest associations in the provincial towns. The society is strictly a Church of England one, and is by Mr. surgeon, of Swillington, she was committed to a lunatic asylum, called the retreat, at Arm- day.

As ne deposited nis pile ot letters on Messrs. Longman's counter, he cherished the hope that he might perhaps that year receive an extra Christmas-box. At night all London was illuminated. Rows of gas-lamps lined the thoroughfares. Light streamed from every dwelling.

The book was in every hand. It was read by the Queen in her palace, the noble in his hall, the tradesman in his Bhop, Sand the artisan in his attic. Some remembering the lustre of the diamond in the "Arabian Nights," imagined that radiance would Btreain from the volume to illumine its pages. The idea was natural but illusory. Every kind of light was in requisition, from the gas breaking in a hundred jets through chandeliers of or-molu, to the farthing ruBh-ligbt stuck in a nozzle of tin or clay, or mounted in the neck of a bottle.

No other subject was thought of. The famous Jenny Lind sung that night to empty benches. Politicians forgot the war, aud householders the price of provisions. Even at the council board the present was lost in the past. The Premier's hilarity puzzled his colleagues as he declared, alluding to the author, that nothing was more natural than the predilection of so staunch a Whig to luBS-Tory.

Mr. Macaulay appeared safe on the pinnacle of fame. He was in truth environed by peril. Two classes were against him. The great body of the publishers were deeply mortified at his success.

The eminent ley, hear Leeds. There appeared to be no doubt about the insanity ot the girl, nor that the detendant had signed Mr. Horton's name without his leave or knowledge. In extenuation it was shown that Mr. Horton had been ill.

It forcibly reminds the reader of a scarcely less heroic though less successful defence, which our gallant countrymen have recently done bo much to prolong. Alas that the horrors of war should be such as this sickening recital shews them By this time July was far advanced, and the state of the city was, hour by hour, becoming more frightful. The number of the inhabitants had been thinned more by famine and disease than by the fire of the enemy. Yet that fire was sharper and more constant than ever.

One of tbe gates was beaten in one of the bastions was laid in. ruins but the breaches made by day were repaired by night with indefatigable activity. Every attack was still repelled. But the fighting men of the garrison were bo muoh exhausted that they could scarcely keep their legs. Several of them iuthe act of striking at the enemy fell down from mere weakness.

A very small quantity of grain remained, and was doled out by mouthfuls. The stock of salted hides was considerable. founded upon Protestant and evangelical principles, taking the Bible, and the Bible only, as the basis of its constitution, and admitting nothing that cannot be proved out of the Scriptnres as a part of the education to be carried on wherever it gives its assistance. A serious question has arisen, whether the training of the National Society ia entirely consistent with the thoroughly Protestant constitution of the Church of England? Still this society is not in opposition to it. The object of this society is to give sums annually to increase the stipends of schoolmasters, there being no the past summer, and that the defendant had permission to act for him, and sign his name to medical certificates for benefit societies.

Mr. Bond, of Leeds, appeared for the defendant. The magistrates committed the latter for trial at the next assizes for the county of York, but admitted him to bail. and day-men Mr. Travis What is the custom Mr.

Ayre Dozens and dozens of spouts are broken down as soon as twelve o'clock strikes at midnight the fun begins Mr. Travis-Are there any other days devoted to this custom Mr. McManus No, except New-year's day The magistrate then ordered each of the priaoners to pay Is. in case they did not, he would fine them and he desired them to give notice to their friends that in case any of them committed a like offence on New-year's day, or at any other time, he would fine, them no.t less than 5s. and costs, and in default of payment send them to prison for from 14 days to a month Four other lads, about the same age, one of them of respectable appearauce, who gave their names John William Firth, Thomas Sutton Dawson, Thomas Clax-k, and Francis Brentano, were brought- up by the same constable, who found them making a noise in Paragon-street, pursued them into Little Queen-street, where they were in the act of upsetting a pig-tub he caught one of them with his hand on the tub, and pursued the others into South-street.

Ordered to pay Is. each, and cautioned as above. Stealing Lead. A middle-aged man, named Dennis Rowlett, was charged with stealing 24 feet of lead pipe, the property of Messrs. Henry Peck and cement manufacturers, at the old glass works, Wilmington, Groves P.

C. Coulson, No. 32, met the prisoner in West-street, at eight p.m. on the evening of Thursday, the 20th inBtant, with 1 stone 3 lbs. lead pipe in his possession.

He said he had received it from a man whose name orjresidence he did not know Jas. Bradbury, foreman to Messrs. Henry Peck and proved that on the evening of the 10th instant there was attached to the engine-house 24 feet of lead pipe, for the purpose of conveying waste into the river. Two thing of the kind, and it is utterly untrue. He told me he would do for me some day, and he did not mind having 18 months for it.

He said if I put him in gaol he would do it --hen he came out. The babe is four months old. I have asked him repeatedly for relief for myself and child, and he says I shall not have a 6d. so long as I live separate from him. He Bays I can earn a pound or 30s.

a week so I could, and have done repeatedly before I was married and since, until my confinement but that was only occasionally I sold my furniture to pay for my confinement, aud now having a baby to attend to and to keep, I cannot earn the money I did, The furniture was mine; I bought it when we were going to be married. I took it away by his order. One he said if there was anything remained in the house at noon he would break it to pieces, as he had done the clock. He said if it was a house full of goods worth a 1000 he should do the same. I then removed the goods to my mother's, next door.

Some time ago he came to see me at my father's he talked very fairly at first, but afterwards said I had been out 1 told him I bad, but only on ordinary business; he then became excited; my father interfered for my protection; he then seized my father by the throat, and it was with difficulty my husband was removed. My father's name is James Dixon, of Temple's-court, High-street For the defence, two witnesses were called for the purpose of proving that defendant had provided a home for his wife, and that they had been together at nights George Ostler deposed They came to ray house, and mutually consented to live together-. They were in my house two hours Silas Gibson said This young man lodged in my house. His wife used to come to him there; they used to go out together On cross-examination by the magistrate, the witness said it was only twice that Airs. Crake came to see him once was at eight o'clock in the evening they were together half-an-hour, and then went out together.

They went out together each time that she came. It was before the baby was born The defendant, on being called on lor any further defence that he had to make, said There's nothing works more on a man's mind than jealousy." Mr. Travis You talk here of things for which there does not appear a shadow of a shade of pretence.

There are many schools which, but for the 5 or 10 contributed by this society, would have been obliged to cease their operations while, by such assistance, some had not only been kept open but enabled to obtain further aid from a government grant. The report, read by William Whitehead, stated that nearly 400,000 children, or more than one-fifth of the children of the poor and industrious classes, are totally unprovided for, and have no education at all while out of 17,000 schools broke out about 6 o'clock tne morning, and spread with such velocity that an hour afterwards the roof fell nunger. uogs, latteneu on tne Dlood 01 tne Bla-m who lay unburied round the town, were luxuries which few could afford to purchase.

They were so lean that little meat was likely to be found for food. The people perished so fast that it was impossible for the survivors to perform the rites of sepulture. There was scarcely a cellar in which plete. ot an article was saved. It appears that workmen had been engaged until a late hour on Saturday night making preparations for the Christmas pantomime, but the origin of the fire has not yet been accounted for.

The Rev. R. Beardley, of Liverpool, stated that, while there are in Liverpool 66,000 children, between 3 and 12 years, who ought to be at school, the provision made by the Church of England, the Dissenters, and Roman Catholics is not quite equal to 38,000, of which the Church supplies 20,000, Dissenters 4,800, and Roman Catholics 8,100, and the general achoolB 4,400. Deducting for the schools not being full, the actual number receiving education would be about 29,080. We might be shocked, but could not be surprised under Buch circumstances, that your delinquents were, many of.

Robert Baxter, of Doncaster, in their loaded shelves, thought of tempting the author to try his hand at that more orthodox style of romance connected in their minds with three slim volumes an exciting love Btory, and a hero free from asthma. The publishers of Dr. Cumming wrote off to him that if he hoped his next volume to float he must fix a near day for the end of the world he had so long been predicting. The house of "Little Dorritt" found little comfort as they looked in their sale-book.

A number of respectable firms agreed to issue no new work for nine days, conceiving that all competition with the literary wonder would for that long period be impossible. The enmity of a more dangerous class had to be met. All Grub-street was in commotion. What would become of their trade if books continued to be published without a flaw The novelty must be put down. Scurrility must be- made to supply the place of wit, and libel of truth.

The elements of conspiracy were ready. The will was not wanting, but the means failed. Grub-street had of late years been shorn of its strength. Lockhart had died in a mean lodging at Paddington. Croker had slunk into an almshouse in some obscure village.

Christopher North, too poor to buy a crutch, had perished miserably bedridden. Thackeray had fled his country. Phillips had died in a sponging-house. Of the critics who remained the easy, Reeve was friendly, the feeble Elwyn was timid. At the moment of its greatest need Grub-street looked in vain for its natural leaders.

What was to be done? Some of its most wretched hacks sent abusive critiques to the papers. They were returned with an intimation, that only panegyric would suit. The miserable creatures felt that they were powerless. For once they earned their wages honestly, and their prostituted pens celebrated the success of learning and genius. There was no longer thought of opposition.

The triumph cf the author was complete. The enthusiasm of the metropolis spread to the provinces. The boy at the plough-tail read, as he plodded through the fallow, how the great Lewis had been conquered by the greater William. Book societies and lending-libraries were in. full activity.

Mudie boasted that he took a thousand copies. The prodigious sale set an enormous amount of coin in circulation, to the great advantage of the whole kingdom. Booksellers throve. Authors hoped. Publishers recovered from their panic.

The whole land rang with congratulation, and hailed the great work as the dawn of a more than Augustan age in British literature. The Press. some corpse was not decaying. Such was the extremity of distress that the rats who came to feast in. those hideous dens were eagerly hunted and greedily devoured.

A small fish caught in the river was not to be purchased with money. The only price for which Buch a treasure could be obtained was some hand-fuls of oatmeal. LeprosieB, bucIi as strange and unwholesome diet engenders, made existence a constant torment. The whole city was poisoned by the stench exhaled from the bodies of the dead and ofthe half dead. That there should be fits of discontent and insubordination among men enduring such misery was inevitable.

At one moment it was suspected that Walker had laid up somewhere a secret store of food, and was revelling in private, while he exhorted others to suffer resolutely for the good cause. His house was strictly examined; his innocence was fully proved he regained his popularity, and the garrison, with death in near prospect, thronged to the cathedral to hear him preach, drank in his earnest eloquence with delight, and went forth from the houBe of God with haggard faces and tottering steps, but with spirit still unsubdued. There were, indeed, some secret plottings. A very few obBcure traitors opened communications with the enemy. But it was necessary that all 6uch dealings should be carefully ooncealed.

None dared to utter publicly any words save words of defiance and stubborn resolution. Even in that extremity the general cry was No And there were not wanting voices which, in low toneB, added, 'First the horseB and hides, and then the prisoners, and then each It was afterwards related, half in jest, yet not without a horrible mixture of earnest, that a corpulent citizen, whose bulk presented a strange contrast to the skeletons which surrounded him, thought it expedient to conceal himBelf from the numerous eyes which followed him with cannibal looks whenever he appeared in the streets." An English Admiral of the Olden Time. We cannot justly blame William for having a high opinion of Torrington. For Torrington was generally regarded as one of the bravest and most skilful officers in the navy. He had been promoted to the rank of Rear-Adtniral of England by James, who, if he understood anything, understood maritime affairs.

That place and other lucrative places Torrington had relinquished when he found that he could retain them only by submitting to be a tool of the Jesuitical cabal.

Guilty Three months' imprisonment with hard labour. Horse Droppings. An old man, named John Morton, was charged by Edwd. Ramsbottom, scave contractor to Board of Health, with collecting horse droppings in the public streets, without having the leave of the Board of Health so to do Mr. Smith (Wells and Smith), solicitor, stated that under the Kingston-upon-Hull Improvement Act the whole of the soave in the public streets iB the property of the local board.

He cited the sections of the act giving them this power. He then stated that the local board has sold the right of collecting the scave to Edward Ramsbottom for a very considerable sum per annum that Ramsbottom has to repay himself out of the scave collected, the value of which would be very considerably deteriorated were the best of it to be taken away by other parties, while he had the labour of keeping clean the streets, and collecting the refuse that the prisoner was charged with collecting horse droppings, and if this were extracted from the general scave, its value would be much reduced there was, however, a class of men who had gained their living by collecting this kind of soil. Mr. Ramsbottom did not wish to deprive them of their livelihood, and had therefore given them all license to pursue their usual calling on paying to him certain sums of from 6d. to Is.

per week. From these small sums Mr. Ramsbottom realised about 40 a-vear. a Bum very consider speaking of the various schemes ol education, said It the rate system should be adopted 600,000, now raised by voluntary subscription, would cease to be so collected, and must be added to the sum to be raised by rate. There are in our national schools 1,300,000 children, while there ought to be 1,800,000.

As to the quality of the education, it is a lamentable fact that out of 17,000 Church schools, it is of so low a grade in 12,000 as to be unfit to receive government aid. The funds raised for the education of these 1,300,000 children amount to 1,050,000 and after reviewing the Church of England, the British and Foreign schools, and those of the Dissenters, he said it was satisfactory to find that four-fifths of all the children in the country are being educated bv the Church of England. at times, and that is exactly the opinion Mrs. Stead has formed of her Mr. Ayre The letter which has been handed up by her husband is a prudent, judicious one, and gives the wife's reasons for not daring to live with her husband.

I find you guilty, but respite judgment to allow you to arrange with the parish officers.

After a short retirement the parties came again into court, saying the defendant had entered into a satisfactory engagement. A CA3E for the Pooh-Law Board. While the court was sitting, and the two relieving officers, Messrs. Addey and Wing, were present, a young married woman, named Elizabeth Eaton, came in and asked for relief Mr. Travis said he was glad the officers were present Mr.

Wing, who was not previously aware of this woman's intention to apply, gave the following history of her case She had been from early childhood an inmate of the Hull Workhouse, had since been married, and finding some reverse in affairs had hastened to return to so good a home. She had tramped from Market Weighton, where she slept one night, and tite next evening about eight o'clock passed the door of the Sculcoates Union. She there applied for relief, but instead of giving it they actually called a pauper out of bed and sent him with her as far as the Hull Workhouse gates, where she was taken in, the porter not deeming it right to turn her adrift at that hour in inclement weather like this. What he complained of was, that very considerable, but we understand tnac mr. itavis is partially insured.

Sparrow War. A correspondent of the Tinies writes In farther illustration of the suicidal folljr of! sparrow extermination, permit me to quote the opinions, on this subject of Buffon and Bewick. The former says, The number of caterpillars a pair of' BparrowB will destroy in feeding their young amounts to about 4,000 weekly." The latter naturalist; who took much interest in their behalf, says, "In the destruction of caterpillars they are eminently serviceable to vegetation. They likewise feed their young with butterflies and other winged insects, each of which, if not destroyed in this manner, would be productive of several hundreds of caterpillars." In country places: the custom of paying for "sparrows' heads" out of the church-rates still exists. The churchwardens of Solihull, in Warwickshire, annually pay a considerable sum for the destruction of these unfortunate innocents, and are reimbursed, at the end of-their year of office, by the trustees of the parish charities out of moneys bequeathed to their trust for "pious and charitable uses." The same enlightened parties expend a further sum out of the same source in the slaughter of hedgehogBj under the vulgar notion that they plunder the udders of the cows and extract the milk.

The principal food of hedgehogs consists of worms, oarrion, the larvie of insects, and sometimes the farinaceous roots of plants. Hence they are of considerable service to man and, owing to the smallnesB of the mouth, are phisioally incapable of the orime alleged against them. It is to be hoped that the publicity given to these absurdities will attract the notice of the Charity Commissioners, and that that body will shortly give the trustees of Solihull a practical lesson in natural history, by compelling them to replace the money they have so palpably misapplied and that the churchwardens will be loft, Bhoiild they Btill persist in. their exploded prejudices, to pay the future premiums for urchins' and sparrows' heads" out of their private purses. This effeoted, and a conversion to the opinions of Buffon and Bewick will certainly and speedily follow.

Many persons object strongly to planting BhrubB or trees in winter, believing that the roots if hurt at this season are liable to rot, and certainly early in autumn is a very preferable season; but with favourable weather we would not delay such. work a single day and if the soil is properly prepared by draining, where necessary, as should always be done before planting, there will probably be fewer failures from planting now than if the work were delayed until March.

At that fine specimen of old domestic aiohitecture, The Mote," at Ightham, in Kent, a hive of bees have for many years eBtablidied themselves beneath the flooring of the ancient chapel. On the day of the death of the last proprietress of the mote they all disappeared, and, on tho same afternoon on which the next occupant (the fair daughter of the devisee) arrived to take possession, the swarm returned to welcome her to her home, and fixed themselves at once in their old quarters. Last winter was, unhappily, too severe for them, and they all perished but, on the first sunny day in the spring, some of the family roaming among the beautiful deep-wooded dells which surrounded the mote, observed very large swarm of beeB sweeping along the gorge, and never checking their flight till they reached the mansion, when they at once fixed themselves in the old quarters beneath the chapel floor, flying straight to the entrance-hole, as if well known and familiar to them.

Mary Ann Davis was charged by Elizabeth Revell with stealing a sheet, which had been washed ana Hung me sculcoates Union should refuse relief and send cases on to the Hull Workhouse. It was contrary to law for she parish or union officers to send a pauper to any Mr. Travis said it was cruel and wrong, and contrary to law, to bandy paupers from one workhouse So another, and he would not allow it. On cross-examining the pauper she gave rather a different state-went from that which Mr.

She then said she Belonged to Hull, and was on her way to her own parish. It was after that Temark that a pauper was sent with iier to the Hull workhouse Mr. Travis said that sending of the man was a point he could not get over.

He thought this a very fit case to be laid before the Poor-law Board, and desired a promise from Mr. Wing that he would do so Mr. Wing said it would be exceedingly unpleasant for him to do so he had repeatedly found that the words of paupers were not to be depended upon he would promise to call at the TTnion -and hear their version of the affair.

His morals hud always bsen loose, so loose indeed that the firmness with which in the late reign he had adhered to his religion had excited much surprise. His glorious disgrace indeed seemed to have produced a salutary effect on his character.

In poverty aud exile he rose from a voluptuary into a hero. But, as soon as prosperity returned, the hero sunk again into a voluptuary and tho lapse was deep and- hopeless. The nerves of his mind, which had been during a short time braced to a firm toni, were now so much relaxed by vice that he was utterly incapable of self-deuial or of strenuous exertion. The vulgar courage of a foremost man he still retained. But botii as admiral and aa First Lord of the Admiralty he was utterly inefficient.

Month after month the fleet which should have been the terror of the seas lay in harbour, while he was diverting himself in London. The sailors, punning upon his new title, gavehimthename of LordTarry-in-town. When he came on Bhipboard he was accompanied by a bevy of courtesans. There was scarcely an hour of the day or of the night when he was not under the influence of claret. Being insatiable of pleasure, he necessarily became insatiable of wealth.

Yet he loved flattery almost as much as either wealth or pleasure. He had long been in the habit of exacting the most abject homage from those who were under his command. His flag-ship was a little Versailles. He expected his captains to attend him to his cabin when he went to bed and to assemble every morning at hia levee. He even suffered them to dress him.

A skating society, composed of young people of both sexes, belonging to the first families, has been formed at Madrid. The fair members of this society have adopted a very picturesque costume for the occasion consisting of a Polish pelisse, trimmed with rich braid, a short kerseymere petticoat, plaid trousers, small beaver hat, with a plume of feathers, and coloured boots. A Magisterial Error. On Thursday an eminent firm in Sheffield received from an American merchant in Manchester, a communication desiring their investigation of a case of alleged injustice committed by a Derbyshire magistrate iu the committal of two boys named John and Michael Gallagan, to prison. The mother of the boys, it appears, earned a living in Manchester aa a vendor of newspapers, and amongst other customers regularly supplied the merchant in question.

Latterly Bhe had been very ill, and assigned as the chief cause of her distress the unjust incarceration of her two sons in prison. Her statement was that the boys had been iu Sheffield nearly two years, and had obtained a good living as shoeblacks, and were well known to Mr. Wilson of the New Market Vaults. They had saved about 3 out of their earniugs, and on the Saturday of Doncaster race week, left by train to visit their parents' in Manchester. When the train stopped at the Glossop station the boya got out for a moment, and on pressing behind a gentleman on the platform he complained to the policeman at the station that they were young pickpockets returning from Doncaster races.
