At tho Mayor's banquet, held on Thursday last (a notice of which appeared in our Friday's paper), a beautiful quartette was sung, the composition of Mr. G. Hargreaves, of this town. After the quartette had been given, his Worship kindly intimated to his guests who its talented author was, and the Kecor ler paid a passing compliment to the Mayor for his patronage of native talent. The words are by Charles Sivaiu, of Manchester. They are as follows : Hark ! from the field of victory, Gallant warriors come ; Wave your banners to tho sky, Sound the flute and drum : Bid the fustal city blaze, With the lamps of gold ; Let the triumph meet our gftzo, As in days of old. Fill tlie wine, the banquet spread. Swell the choral strain ; Honour ye the glorious dead, Knights of Allemayno. Hark ! the silver cymbals clash. Drums and trumpets sound ; Hi.-lln, and shield, and banners Hash O'er the gorgeous ground ; laud as thunder rings the cry, From the joyous shore ; Victory! 'tis victory Crowns the hul l once inoi-e. Fill the wine, the banquet spread, Swell the choral strain ; Honour ye the glorious dead, Knights of All alliayne, The Liverpool Dock Bill. The committee resumed its sittings oa Thursday last. On Friday a'l the clauses up to 47 were agreed to without any discussion of i it -rest. The 47th empowers the establishment of an E.nigrants' Home, at the expense of the dock estate ; and on its being read, Mr. Burke objected to the funds of the d iuk estito being so applied. An Emigrants' Hiinn came under tho category of a charitable institution, and ought to be established like the Infirmary, or other-institutions in the town, bv voluntary contr. tuitions, llus was the course both in Plymouth and London. Mr. James de fended the clause as it stood, contending that, as tne town was beiie'ited by tlie influx of emigrants, and thu dock estate derived its share in the general advantage, it was only just that it should rcn-ler it, ejntr'.butijn in tho B'nape proposed Tlie couiin'ttoo retired to ooasid.T this clause; and, after a Inief alueneo, the Chairman announced that they had determine:! to strike it out ; but, lie added, when they came to tlie warehousing c'.ause, they would give power for one or U'o such warehouses to bo applied to the purposes of an Emigrants' Home. The remaining clauses were then agreed to, after which Air. Paget read the following, and requested its insertion in the' shorthand-writers' notes : " The counsel for tho Corporation of Liverpool and for the Tru.t.-es of the Liverpool Docks respectively, after the passing of the preamble of tho bill promoted by the American Cha nber of Commerce, and the resolution of the committee on the bill with reference to an alteration in tlie constitution of tlie Dock Committee, fooling that inasmuch as the bill must now b;: passed by the committee, consistently with that resolution ; and inasmuch as if passed by the House of Commons, and by the other house of Parliamant. its provisions will have to be carried into effect by the I) ck Committee, whom they represent before tlie committee on tlie bill, will endeavour to assist in securing, so far as practicable, that the enactments of tho bill shall bo such as may ho practically fulfilled in the bast manner consistently" with the decision of the committee; but they do so under protest, on behalf of their clients, an 1 with the distiu 't intimation that, as at present advised, they intend. an I are to be at lioerty, to oppose the oi l ui all its tuture s'.atros. " The Chairman assented, and the words were ordered to appear. Tlie bill was then ordered to be reported to the house. The report was forthwith agreed to, and the eommi tae bee line fiinctun utikio. MAN'CHESTEII SlIAKSI'KAUiAN SOCIETY'S PkUFOI'.M-ANOK IN' All) OI'' THE Ft-'NDB OF THE LIVERPOOL 1'h'E AN1 E.ut I.XI'ilUIAi'.Y. Tlie bill of faro of tho Manchester Siiakspearian Society appears in our advertising columns tins day. It is attractive in itself. "As You Like It," llosidind and Orlando, Audrey and Touch-atone, and the melancholy Jacques, are personages that never fail to call up associations uf beauty and enthusiasm, and wit and philosophy, that warm our hearts and expand our intellects, and make the most phlegmatic speak in nervous eloquence of the genius of Shakspearc. But, beside the attractions of the bill, the object uf the porformaXoc lias a pecu iar claim to the sympathies of the public. The Eye and Ear Infirmary has for many years CJiifeire l its beuelils on those of tlie poorer classes, not only of our own town, but from ail parts of the three kim'.lonis, who have been afdiete l with painful mala lies which affect the sight and hearing. Last year no fewer than 72SU persons wno were suffering from diseases of tho eye and ear wore relieved at this institution. The expenses of boarding patients must be very great, and numerous are the cases which require that the patient remain under the roof of the Infirmary. One of the benevolent characteristics of this institution is " that all persons unable to pay for their cure (whose case may require an operation, or whose disease is of su di a character as to endanger the loss of sight, if judicious and appropriate remedies aro not promptly administered) arc deemed fit objects for recommendation as in-patients." The debt, which lias accumulated to upwards of .'1 OUt), has arisen out of the extansiveness of the good that the institution has effected, aad the present taudabb effort of the Manchester Siiaksperiiin Society for its liquidation wa have no doubt will meet with the hearty cooperation of our fe'.low-towiismo.i. We are glad to learn that some .nenibars of the Town Council are using their iiiHuonce to secure a bumper; ant! wo hope that we shall have to record (hat not a single member of that body failed to show liii sympathy foi so dt-soruus au institution. Some may have conscientious scruples against theatrical reirese,talio!is, and may not honour the gentleman amateurs with their kind applause ; but their donations will be a suliiclent apology for their absence, am! their scruples will gain the respect over due to conscientious conviction. No man needs his sympathies arousing for those who suffer from diseases of the eye. " A grain of dust, a wandering hair. Any annoyance in that precious sense," is sufficient to direct him to aid in their relief. Tliat tlie Liverpool Eye an 1 liar Infirmary is highly ctlicient in its means for the relief of sufferers, the testimony of thousands will bear evidence. The following letter, addressed to -Mr. Neill, anil rea l by the treasurer at the last annual meeting of the subscribers, is only one of many instances uf the good effected hy this institution : " Colei'aine, 10th January 1851. Dear Sir, It was not until yesterday that I had an opportunity of seeing and examining tlie woman, M'Cloan, who went from Kiilowen-strcet, in this town to ' The Eye and Ear Infirmary' at Liverpool. When I first saw her, in company with another minister who called witli me at tlie house, she was quite helpless, and required to be led by the hand. It was in this way that she made out my house on the next day, for the purpose of receiving sonic assistance to enable her to undertake tlie journey to Liverpool. I made particular enquiries about her, and learned that, from being in comparative comfort, she and her husband, owing to her loss of sight and inability to aid him, wore in the deepest poverty, and destitute of the commonest neecssaiies of life. When she called upon me yestanlay, the change in her appearance was so great, that I could hardly have recognised her. She is now in the fullest enjoyment of lier eyesight, and expressed the deepest gratitude for the attention and kindness shown to her, and for the wonderful cure wrought upon her. Allow me, my dear sir, to add my own acknowledgments, and to express my very high appreciation of your abilities ; and of what is still more rare your kindliness and sympathy to wards those children of affliction who have, from time to time, gone from this neighbourhood to your important ami truly valuable institution. I am, my dear air, very truly yours, W. RicnEY." Election op Guardians.

For a long series of years the Knowsley aviary has been celebrated for its treasures in natural history, and also for the success which has attended its efforts to re-produce tho races of animals and birds. Under fhe direction of the curator of the aviary, considerable attention has of late been 'paid to tlie artificial incubation of birds by means of Cantello's incubator. During tho past year more care than usual has been exercised both in extending the process and increasing the varieties of production. The latest novelty, and one which certainly lias had no parallel in tins country, Das been the hatching of six emus. This bird, of which there are several specimens at Knowsley, is a native of New South Wales. It has beon found possible on former occasions to hatch tho birds in a natural way ; but recently a case occurred which called for artificial incubation, "or the entire loss of the egg.-. One of these birds laid ten eggs, the ninth of which she broke, and the bird refused to sit. Eight of the eggs were therefore placed in the artificial incubator, and two were left to the bird, in the hope that sho would again lay and that the eggs would be hatched. This, however, proved a failure. The eggs placed in the incubator remained during tlie customary time of tlie bird's sittin'a;, and thev were watched with great interest flay ami niglit. At lenutli the time eggs rolled into one. The young bird has its feathers marked in black and white stripes, running from tho bill to tlie tail in lines, and it is also dotted with spots of black. The feathers, which at this periotl are downy, change their character as the bird grows older, resolving themselves into an approximation to those of the ostrich. Instead of straight lines running down the bird's body, the feathers divide themselves by a parting down tlie back, with an inclination to the right and to the left. m "V .

From experience we can pronounce it to possess the two desirable requisites of flexibility and durability, and as a superior article refer it to the notice of our read.u-s. Batween Saturday night and Sunday morning last, Messrs. Scott's warchou4e, Mason-street, was broken open, and several hams, twelve samples of tea, four peases, two vest pieces, and a bottle ot cam,):igne, 9tolehe Some drawers had been broken opan, but no money wa.s obtained. The thieves made their way into the warehouse by breaking through the roof. Two hams were left behind in the street. On Saturday night, a woman and a boy were seen to lower themselves down from a cotton warehouse, in Bixtoth-street. They immediately ran off, and made their escape. On examination, a quantity of cotton was found tied up in bundles ready for removal, A padlock had beon broken from ono of the warehouse rooms. On Saturdav a woman named Ann Kaye, a flannel dealer, from lluddersfudd, died suddenly at a house in Leeds-street, where she was in tlie habit of staying when she came 1 1 town. Fire in Boi,d-stuef.t. On Saturday afternoon a fire broke out on the pre nises of Mr. John Thierry, dealer in French shoes, &c, Bold-street. Fortunately, the flames, which originated from a quantity of rosin chips stowed in a cupboard near tha kitchen tirepiao ', were soon subdued by tho fire brigade, with the aid of the water from the Green-iane mains. A considerable quantity of goods were destroyed, most of them by the water employed in extinguishing the flames. Tan MousioxiTES. On Sunday last, the 13th instant, several thousands of parsons assembled in the neighbourhoods of Hyde and Newton-moor, to witness the baptism of upwards "of thirty Mormonites. The priests and elders who conducted the proceedings were said to conic from Manchester and Liverpool. The proceedings were conducted throughout the whole of the day in a very disorderly and disgraceful manner. WisleyaN RiSFOUM. The Royal Assembly-rooms, Groat George-street, have boon opened as a separata place of worship by the Reform Association in Liverpool. On Sunday last two eloquent sermons wero preached, to crowd "d audiences, by Mr. Grosjean, of London, a gentleman who, though heinis been thrice honourably acquitted by a jurv of his peers as not guilty of anything that would be a disservice to Methodism or religion, was nevertheless expelled from the church, strange to say, by a vote of ministers convened to a district meeting! Pity that preachers, who aro called shepherds, should thus so handle the crook as to make it an instrument of de-truc-tion and dispersion, rather than conservation and protection. Cuirespoudent. THE WARRINGTON MURDER. Ti'Il-: (JUId'ltlTS AT KIRKDU.K, As yet no reply has been received from Sir George Grey to the memorial embed. ing the c mfession of Lynns, exonerating his wife from all participation in the crime or which both parties have been found guilty ; so that tho fate of the woman is still undecided. Daring the past week, after the statements made by Lyons and his wife had been forwarded to Sir George Grey, the Rev. Mr. Marshall placed copies of the statements in the hands of Mr. Cibbs, the governor of Kirkd.de Gaol, who laid them before tlie visiting justice.), and the re.-ult was that communication was had with Lyons, who stoutly denied that he had ever made such a confession, and went so far as to allege that it was invented by Mr. Marshall. In about au hour after the cu pritbecame very uneasy, and desired to see the governor. On Mr. Gibbs visiting him, Lyons admitted that the statement lie had made to Mr. Marshall was perfectly correct, and that when questioned by the visiting justices he had not told the truth. Since then "he seems to have conducted himself with great propriety, and pays tiie utmost -attention to tho religious instruction which he receives from tha lluv. Mr. Hgan, of Holy Cross, who is now attending hi u, in accordance with his request that he might have a clergyman who spoke the Irish language. Lyons seems peni-te it, and quite understands tho fearful position in which he is placed. His wife still asserts her entire innocence, but is quite rasig ic I, and willing to meet de.ith. In flic earlv part of last weak she was (pl.t.; clicerl il, anil se ma 1 to anticipate that tho dreal sentence of the law might notbj cirried out upon liar; but the line rtainty and delay have since produced great mental depression, and sho has almost cease 1 to hope fir a reprieve. She ii attended by the lluv. Mr. Marshall. Lyons has, within the last few days, received a letter from a sister of bis, resident i i Ireland, condoling with him on the position in which he is placed. The letter is feelingly and appropriately written. The prisoners had an interview last week i'n the presence of tlie oSciids of the gaol. The execution is fixed for tha '23th instant, and the services of Calcral't hare been engaged for the occasion. BANKRUPTCY COURT. In he MAWl'Bt JOSB3. Tnis bankrupt earn) before. Mr. Commissioner Stevenson yesterday, on his last examination. He was formerly in business at Wrexham, as a cheese factor. Mr. Brans, solicitor, appeared for the bankrupt, and Mr. Simon, banister, in opposition. A long argument took place relative to a claim on the estate for a sum of upwards of .21)0, made by a creditor named Daniel Jones. It appeared that the claim was made by an award in favour of tho creditor. The Commissioner thought that whan tho bankrupt (Missed his last examination, an opportunity should be aliirded to tha assignees to dispute the award made in fav ur of Jones, of a debt which had beon admitted as a claim on the estate. For this purpose he adjourned the further hearing of the ease till the 14th of May next. Is liii J. AN! H. Sukur.

Tlie implication made by Mr. Evans for the bankrupt's cei tiiicate was opposed by Mr. Bremner ; and the bankrupt underwent a long examination relative to au assign-in ,-nt he had previously made, which ho said was for the benefit of all his creditors, but which ultimately appeared tu have been only in favour of throe.

The person who found it supposed it to be alive, but on being taken to the Eastern Dispensary, the surgeon of that institution pronouuead it to be quite dead.

On Friday last Mary Ann Oldlield, wife of a labourer residing in" Waiter-Street, died from taking laudanum. The deceased had been separated from her husband for several weeks, and on Thursday last she called at a friend's house, and appeared to be in a state of great excitement, saving she would have her husband's life. Sho said she was goinaf to see her husband, and added--" When all fails ma, I can make a hole for myself in tlie canal ;" after which she became affected to tears. Shortly afterwards she called at the house where her husband lodged, in Walter-street ; sho was then in liquor, and on seeing her husband intimated that sho was going to London. After drinking something from a bottle, the deceased lay down on the bed, and shortly afterwards wont below into the kitchen, and sat upon a chair. Soon afterwards she fell off the chair, and died in a few hours. There was nothing in the deceased's manner to lead to the supposition that she intended to destroy herself. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased destroyed herself in a fit of temporary insanity. On Tuesday last, James Hesketli, a carter in tiie employ of Messrs. 1'ickford and Co., carriers, went out to Hale-wood to deliver ale. Another carter in the same employ was with him.

Ill about twenty minutes she heard a noise in the yard, and came down again, and on opening the door sho saw the same woman (deceased) lying at tlie bottom of tho steps. There was no one near her. She (Mrs. Bennett) then saw a police-officer coming up the yard, who said ho would look after the deceased. Mrs. Bennett then went hack to bed. The deceased was removed to the Northern Hospital, where she died on Friday.

The monthly meeting of the Birkenhead Total Abstinence Society was held at tho Craven-moms, Chester-street, on Friday evening last, William Morgan, Esq., in the ciiair. The meeting was addressed by .Ur. W.

Co iper showed tho unsoundness of tiie position ol in. derate drinkers, principally by the recital of anecdotes, which showed how completely the intcl cet and best leel-inn-s of our nature are destroyed by habits of drinking. Mr. Darby, of lSrymbo-hal!, spoke of tho Great Exhibition, or the influence of tlie World's Convention on peace, liberty, and temperance.

Yesterday, a lire, attended with most serious results to property, occurred in .Beacon-street, Great Howard-street. The premises in which the fire originated are occupied by Messrs. AV. Deane and Co., and the building belongs, as we were informed, to a lady named Parkes. The buildings are known as Parke's Certified Shed. It appeavsitliat shortly before two o'clock smoke was first observed issuing from the building. The discovery was made by tho warehouseman, who hat! been absent only a short time. An alarm was instantly communicated to the fire-station, and Inspector Bibby, with a large body of the. tire brigade and five engines, proceeded immediately to the spot. The lire had, however, by this time assumed an alarming aspect; tlie flames were issuing through the roof, audit appeared evident that the fire had been smothering for some time before it broke forth in such a manner as to become observable. On the arrival of the engines they were brought into play with all possible promptitude, and a plentiful supply of water being obtainable, vigorous efforts were made to subdue the flames. The firo, however, having in the first instance gained tlie. ascendancy, little could be done, beyond preventing its spread to the adjoining premises, those on the north being warehouses, stored with merchantable produce ; on tlie south were several dwelling-houses, and tho inmates of course becoming alarmed, began to remove their furniture, as it appeared probable at that time that the fire would extend beyond the building iu which it originated. Fortunately, through the exertions of the fire brigade, this did not take place. A portion of tha furniture was much damaged in the removal, though tiie unfortunate sufferers received every assistance from the police which it was in their power to give. The fire continued its progress almost unabated for upwards of an hour, after which, from the immense quantities of water poured upon it, the flames gradually subsided, and by four o'clock all apprehension as to its "spreading to the adjacent property was at an end. Tlie firemen did their duty most efficiently, under the direction of their superintendent, Mr. Bibby. Mr. Superintendent Towerson, with inspectors White ' and M 'Donald, and about twenty of the fire-police, rendered essential service in preserving order, and protecting the property recovered from the lire. Mr. Duncan, the deputy borough engineer, was early on tlie spot, and gave every assistance in his power ; also Mr. A. Stone, of the Liverpool office, and Messrs. Sutton, of the Phoenix. Amongst those present was Mr. J. Hewitt, late of the fire-station, who has for some time been unable to follow his usual occupation from indisposition. Ho was exceedingly active on the occasion in giving advice and assist ance, anu ins lieaitn appears now so iar resuircu uian nu will in a short time, be able to resume his loriiier duties. Connected with the shed adjoining that of Messrs. Deane, is a stron" parapet wall which protected the building, and to a ereaf extent prevented the spread of tlie fire in that direction. The fire brigade continued their exertions till about six o'clock, when, all apprehension of further clanger being at au end, they ceased playing upon the burning pile". The building was completely gutted, and .
