MONEY MARKETCm; S.uvRDAf. There has been but very Bttle-spQculative business Entered; into at the Stock Exchange to-day, the dealers having been chiefly engaged in balancing their accounts.

At the lose of business. 92f was the nearest price ; and for the month of Julv, 93. In Money Stock vcrv little business was done to-day. The New 3. per Cents, closed KM, and the 4 per Cents, at 100J. Some curiosity is beginning to be felt (o ascertain the result of the project for the conversion of the 4 per Cents, of IS20. The hook opened at the Bank of England for yecciving the names of dissentients will, so far as regards holders of Stock in the Cnited Kingdom, close on Wed-nesdavnext. It is fully expected that nianv dissentients will be entered on the first three days of next week ; but still the opinion is generally entertained that the whole amount entered will not touch one million. If this should i.e the ease, the Chancellor of the Exchequer will be enabled to pay off the panics objecting to the plan, without any great difficulty. , The periods named for the el.wJas of the. transfer-books at the Bantpreparatorv to the payment of the next dividends, ana the days for the re-onen;n:r of the .Stocks for transfers, are n-ioiums .Shut.

A notice has 'been circulated for paying off :d! Kxchcquer Bills i-sued dnriii"' the first six months of the previous year, for carrying on public works and fisheries, and for the West India relief, amounting in all to about 12,000,000?. The bills will be paid off on the 19th of next month, or exchanged by a new issue, as may be preferred by the holder?. The premium on Exchequer Bills continues exceedingly firm at from 50s. to 51s. The advertised Bills, however, are rather lower. India Stock was sold this afternoon at 260, which is rather lower than vesterdav. I'p to the close of business in the city this afternoon, no further arrivals were announced, either from Spain or Portugal. It is generally believed that the treaty of intervention has been ratified by the'llegcncy of Portugal, and will, as we have before noticed, be transmitted to this country by the County of Pembroke steamboat. We have heard it mentioned that Sir J. Campbell has been, or is about to be, released from confinement by the Government ot Portugal. The incarceration of this British officer, in consequence of his having been in the service of Don Miguel, and who, it will be remembered, was taken out of a British ship, recently formed the topic of discussion in the House of Lords. We understand that our Government have sent, out to Chili the acknowledgment of the independence of that Republic, and that. Colonel Walpole, who has proceeded to Chili as the representative of this country there, is the bearer of this intelligence, as also of a treaty of commerce between the two countries. The reason, as we are informed, why the recognition of the independence of Chili did not take place contemporaneously with the other States of the New World was, that the Spaniards held footing in it. long after they had been forced out of Mexico, Columbia, &c. and that when Chili was completely freed from the presence of the Spaniards the disturbed and disorganised state of Mexico and Columbia caused our Government, to suspend the acknowledgment of the independence of Chili.

The long expected Anniversary of the above Establishment was celebrated on Thursday night, in the theatre of the Institution, Southampton-buildings, Chancery-lane: Dr. Birkbeck, the President, in the Chair. The theatre was crowded by the members and their friends ; amongst, the latter were many ladies, including Miss Mar-tineau, Mrs. Austin, Mrs. Jamieson, Mrs. Grimstone, &c. Dr. Birkbeck addressed the Meeting at considerable length on the advantages and prospects of the Institution, and concluded by presenting the prizes which had been offered for competition, one of 10. and one of 5., presented by a distinguished individual, for the best essays on Emulation, to Messrs. Henry Price, and J. M. Kymer; and one of by Mr. Iloldsworth, for the best specimen 'from the drawing schools, to Mr. Vine. It was then moved by the Honourable Mr. Pelham, and carried unanimously, that the afflux for ten years of one thousand members, proved that the want of that information the Institution was intended to diffuse was and is widely felt, and continues to be supplied. It was moved by Mr. Babbagc, and carried Shat the adherence of the members showed" that its capacity to instruct increased with their growing culture, and also showed its preference to ihe meagre and quickly exhausted routine of the long founded seminaries of a contracted scheme of education. Colonel Torrens ort rooved a Resolution approving of the study of Political Economy, which was also carried. Dr. Lardner moved that the talent there developed showed the wisdom of the plan of educating the indus-jrinus classes. Mr. Morgan seconded the Resolution, and in the course of his speech offered a prize of 5. for the best scheme of education. The Resolution was carried. Thanks were then voted to the friends of the Institution generally, and to Dr. Birkbeck particularly, and the Meeting separated at an early hour. DEATH OF A LADY RUN OVER BY A CAB. A jury assembled on Saturday at the Craven Arms, Marshall-street, to im'Uire into the circumstances which lea to me ueatn oi nt Harriet Veiies, the wife of a master builder in Marshall-street. Mr. Rice, surgeon, said on Saturday last, about eight o'clock, he ivn ceiled in to' prescribe for Mrs. Vcnes; when he attended he found her labouring under severe injury, her thigh being badly broken unri her side and arms very much bruized; witness continued to at tend her up to Thursday morning last, when she expired of a delirium tremens. The delirium was brought on by the injuries she had sustained the previous Saturday. Mr. Richard Kidgewav, of No. 3, Charlotte-street, Fitzroy-square, stated, on Saturday evening about a quarter past seven o'clock, he had just crossed Regent-street, when he heard an alarm given ; on turniinr his head witness saw that a female was in danger of coming in contact with a horse in a cabriolet ; the horse was apparently cheeked, and the deceased receded ; the deceased then made a sort of curved movement to get in advance of the horse, but the horse was too ouick for tier, and witness perceived her " scrambling n.rainei tlm horse, which ended in the deceased being struck by the near shaft of the cabriolet. The deceased was knocked diiu-n on her hock iii the middle of the road, and the wheel of the cab went over her person in a longitudinal direction. Witness distinctly heard u crack when the wheel went over the deceased, as if from a bone breaking. Witness went to her assistance, and asked her to walk with him to a surgeon. The deceased replied, that she could not, as either her hip or her thigh bone was broken. Witness saw her into a chemist's shop; and, on her expressing a desire to go houie, witness lost sight of her, she being put into a cabriolet, and taken home. Bv the Coroner : Did you see at what rate the cab was going when the accident occurred? Witness: No, 1 did not. There were very few carriages passing at the time. By a Juror : After the cabman had checked his horse, did you see the 'man drive on in a reckless manner? Witness: My opinion is, that the cabman thought he had cleared the woman. The driver was ot) the off side, and the woman on the other. By a Juror : You said there was a scramble between the woman and "the horse ; could not the driver have pulled up in time? Witness: Aftpr the woman was struck down, the driver, I think, thought he had got clear of her, and so proceeded. Coroner: From what you saw, do you impute any criminal blame to the driver? Witness :' I did not see sufficient of the occurrence to give an opinion. 1 think that it was owing to the woman's efforts to pass the cab that the accident occurred. 1 do not think, judging from what I saw, that the driver was criminally to blame. Mr. Thomas Ctilhun, Regent's Park Barracks, was passing down llegent-street, and saw the cab just before the accident occurred. It was going at a full trot, and at such a pace that a passenger crossing .-, rnml would be in dancer. It was going at. too great a rate, in the ;;,, nf u-iinoKs. It was coin" about 8 miles an hour. Witness saw the deceased thrown down and trampled upon by the horse. Ttie cab-driver did not appear to check his horse at all, and the con-that one of the wheels went over her body, in a sliml ine direction. The cnb-mau continued to go on until stopped by a policeman. By a Juror : Did the cab-man pull up at all ?-nut until after the accident. -Witnc No, he did Tim I'Wmnn of the Jury remarked, that the evidence of the first thn liittor witness was at variance. By the Foreman: Could the cab-man have pulled up in time to have prevented the accident ? Witness : I think he could. If he could not have prevented the knocking down of the woman, I think he could havf prevented the wheel ot tne cao irom going ooi uui. Mnn- k'..nnv. butler to Lord Stourton, witnessed the accident. In the opinion of witness the occurrence was accidental ; did not impute blame to the driver. The horse was not going at ft furious rate, but u-iiness did not see tiia cab until after the driver had called out to the woman. The driver pulled up immediately alter the accident occurred. To the best of witness's belief the cabman pulled up of his own accord. A policeman of the C division, who saw the cab-man immediatel nficr the accident, said that his conduct was humane and proper. Miss Rose, of Hanover Terrace, Regent's Park, said that she was on the outside of the Dover coach when the accident occurred. Did not see the commencement of the accident, but witnessed the conduct of the cabman after it occurred. It was very feeling and proper. Annthor nr.liepm.iii of the C Division gave similar testimony with respect to the conduct of the cabman after the accident. The Jury havin" cxpressedthomselves satisfied, relumed a Verdict, that the deceased met her death accidentally from being knocked down hv a horse which drew thecal) over her. The Coroner intimated to the Jury, that by their verdict the horse and" cab had become forfeited. It was for them to consider whether thev would affix a dcodand or condemn the property Mr. Roe, the proprietor of the cub, addressed a lew words to t ie Jury, and remarked, that if the Jurv put a heavy ucouand on the cab and horse the innocent party, the proprietor, would be the sufferer. The Jury then decided that a deodand of one shilling should be levied, and added a icxommsndation to Government to license cabriolet drivers. COURT OF CHA NCER Y S a tlrda y, 31 ay 24. Harrington v. Loc:-The question'in this case was, whether the parties who instituted it had laid themselves open to the charge of maintenance. The creditors, of Long had filed a bill against his executor for the administration of the assets in their favour, a. d obtained a decree. The plaintiff, Mr. Harrington, who had o cla m of manv thousand pounds on the estate on the ground of an alleged fraudulent contract, purchased me aeot oi a puisoi. mm, . i ,,, t held, in as a narty to work the suit. The Master of the in. t.!.i timt under the circu.nstan nccsthis was maintenance, and , !.-,.. wrht !l(nillf tills llfM'.isioil The matter was argued at some length by Counsel, both yesterday and to-dayJudgment '' Hns'en V I wis A considerable part of the morning was occupied with a discussion en the nature and extent of the reference directed to the Master in this case, with respect to the accounts to be taken between the parties. His I oaiismi' terminated it by observing, that he would take the amecoursc he had adopted often before see the Master himself, ami ascertain what were his views of the direction he had given. At present, it certainly appeared to him that the Master had somewhat mistaken the direction on one of the points of inquiry. COURT OF KING'S BENCH. Saturday, May 24. i Sittings in Banco. Williams v. T.ioMAS.-Mr. Watson applied for a rule to show cause why a new trial should not he granted in tins case in which the question involved was whether the clause m the recent Bankrupt Act was compulsory on the assignees of a bankrupt to allow all the servants of the bankrupt six mouths' wages. The Court took time to consider whether they could grant tllBvwATVii v. Richardson This was an action on the warranty of a horse The case was tried before Mr. Baron Bollanu at the last Summer Assizes, at Lancnstcr.whcn itappeared'that the horse hadbeen sold hv auction.thatone of the conditions upon which the sale ofhorses at the repository at which this horse was sold, was, that if the horse was unsound it should be returned within 24 hours. The horse was not returned till sometime afterwards. .The horse was warranted sound, and quiet, in harness. The plaintiff sold it soon after he had bought it, and the person who purchased it from him brought an action against him, and proved that the horse was neither quiet in harness nor sound. A verdict, therefore, was passed against the pre-, sent plaintiff in that case, and he then brought this action, in which, when tried before Mr. Baron Holland, a verdict was given for the plaintiff, with damages equal to the value of the horse. A motion had since been made by Mr. F. Pollock for a rule to show cause why the damages should not be increased by the amount of the eostspaid by the plaintiff in the first action. Mr. Alexander, on behalf of the defendant had obtained another rule that a nonsuit should be entered. Mr. Pollock and Mr. G. HorE now appeared to show cause against the second rule; and, hiving admitted that the plaintiff could nrt claim damages in respect, of the costs incurred in the first action, they proceeded to argue that the plaintiff was fully entitled to support the present act.ion.-notwithstanding the notice as to the limitation of the twenty-four hours. They insisted that if an unsoundness was dts-covered in a horse, and was such an unsoundness that it could not be discovered within the twenty-four hours, the limitation was one which the law would not enforce against a purchaser. Mr Ai rvvNPKR, in support of his rule, contended that any party-was at liberty to bind himself by any condition that was not in itself illegal The limitation as to the twenty-four hours was not an illegal condition ; and if the plaintiff chose to purchase a horse at a sale, at which he knew such to be one of the conditions, he must be bound by it and it was not open to him afterwards to come and contend that there was any difficulty in his performance of the condition. The Court thought, as there was no doubt in this case of the plaintiff haying been aware of the condition, the effect of such knowledge was, that he was hound by the limitations which it. had imposed upon him. The Rule for entering a nonsuit must be made absolute. COURT OF COMMON PLEAS. Saturday, May 24. PiucF. v. Peake and Otukrs. This was an action for assault and false imprisonment, tried before the Chief Justice at Guildhall, when a verdict was had for the plaintiff, damages 100. It appeared that the plaintiff had been arrested under a writ of capias ud sat., and that the son of the sheriff's officer who arrested him had charged him with a felony, in order to procure the assistance of a police-officer, and had him taken to a police-office, and from thence to prison. Mr. Serjeant Bomi-as now appeared on behalf of the sheriffs, to move for a rule to show cause why a nonsuit should not be entered, or a new trial had, on thu ground of misdirection. The Learned Ser, jeant contended, that the sheriffs had pleaded justification, and had justified the committal of the plaintiff to prison, by virtue of the writ : and that if Richard Jackson, one of the defendants, and the son of the sheriff's bailiff', had arrested the plaintiff under a charge of felony, he was not acting under colour of the writ, and, therefore, the sheriffs were not liable. The Court, after hearing the arguments, granted a rule to show cause. Svkf.s v. Haige In this case a rule had been obtained ay Mr. Serjeant Wilde, calling upon the defendant to show cause wny a verdict obtained bv mm snouitt not oe set asiue, auu a veimoi, cnw.-. for the plaintiff for the sum of 1,500?. Mr. Serjeant Aitciikiilv now appeared to snow cause ugaiusL tile. The case had been tried at the York Assizes, and the facts were these : A gentleman named Taylor, shortly before his aeatn, presented the defendant with two bonds, a promissory note, and some household furniture, in consideration of services rendered him during lis illness, and an action of trover was brought by ttie representatives of the deceased, to recover possession of this property. It was con. tended that consideration had been given By the uetenoant ior me property, as was acknowledged by the donor previous to his death, and possession having been given, the title to the property passed to the defendant and rested in him. Chief Justice Denman, before whom the case was tried, made no decision upon the law, but left the case to the Jury, who had found lor the defendant. Mr. Serjeant Wilde replied. The Court suggested that as it was apparent the defendant had some claim for services rendered, it would be very advisable to reier the matter to the arbitration ot some friend. Mr. Serieant Aitcheiu.y asked time till Wednesday to communi cate with the parties, which was granted. WESTMINSTER SESSIONS S.,tusuay, May 24. The adjourned Westminster Sessions were held before Francis Const, Esq. and a Bench of Magistrates. MICHAEL OWEN, a tailor, from the hills of Cambria, was indicted for assaulting George Clark, an Irish shoemaker, on the 14th April The prosecutor, a man of nearly Herculean proportions, complained that on the day laid in the indictment, " that there man in the dock" struck him violently with a poker, and " defaced" his countenance so much so, indeed, that he was not fit to be seen for several days. Both himself and the prisoner lived in the same house, in Carnabv-street, Carnaby Market. Chairman : Have you any witnesses, Clark V Prisoner : Oh yes ! Sarah White deposed that the prosecutor was the man in fault; he came into her bed raoin, and grossly abused her. The tailor came to take her part, when the shoemaker struck him, and a general row took place. Chairman : Did you see the poker ? Witness : Poker, your Worship ! Why, it was only a bit of wire he uses when he trusses his coat collars. The prosecutor was recalled, and admitted he did not know whether he hadbeen struck by & hot or a cold poker. Mr. Bodkin : Oh, the tailors are all striking characters now. Not Guilty. JOHN KEED, THOMAS JACKSON, WILLIAM and EDWARD RUSSELL, were called on their recognizances to answer ii charge for keeping a common gaming-house in the parish of St. James. William Russell only appeared. I he prosecutors, Thomas and S. Matthews, did not appear, and a verdict of acquittal was returned. JOHN PARKE, for a similar offence, was likewise acquitted, the prosecutors, Thomas Weston and John Waugh, being also absent. the Court adjourned at one o ciock. POLICE. Satuhday. MANSION-HOUSE A very ingenious swindler, who had practised most successfully in America, has taken up his abode in the City, and has commenced a series of impositions upon the London tradesmen. The Lord Mayor received a communication from a New York Magistrate relative to the individual : " Sin Not knowing your address and house, I have directed to you generally. 1 pray you to consider, in doing so, if I should omit any of your rightful titles, it is not from want of respect, but absolute ignorance of the etiquette used on such occasions. ' The object of this letter will appear in three lines. A notorious and ingenious villain of the name of , a clothes-scourer, ran away from tins city about a year ago, and is now settled in London. He is alight Mulatto. There is no crime he will not commit. Plausible, artful, deceitful, and a rogue, I deem it. my duty to put the London police on their guard. He has been frequently in our prisons, and lately ran awav from his bail here. He has had the talent to get round from a coterie of rogues, male and female. He is always head contriver ot villainies, which he directs his agents to carry into effect; so that, though tie participates in tneprotit ot the crimes committed, lie seldom puts his own head in the noose. If I shall be able to be of service to the city of London by the trouble, Sir, I have taken,! shall be amply repaid; and shall only ask, in return, that you will reciprocate with the Magistrates of New York similar information, when in your power. I am your obedient, servant, " New York, April 24. " W.M. Van VYyck, Justice of Police. " The Most Worshipful the Lord Mayor of London." The Loud Mayor immediately gave instructions to Mr. Brown, the Chief Marshal, on the subject ; and observed, that a system ol communication of the kind commenced by his American correspondent would, no doubt, if acted upon punctually and vigorously, be advantageous to both countries. Roimivav and KoiiOEiiY In the year 1831, a great warehouse in Manchester was broken open hv thieves, and robbed of bank notes and bank post bills, to the amount of about 540. Amongst the properly were two bank post bills, marked K 235 and K 237, for '200. each". The police were employed the moment the robbery was discovered, but their exertions proved unavailing. The robbery was effected by steady fellows, who could afford to lay the swag aside until the sensation abated. Five or six months ago one of the bank notes (for 40.'. ) was stopped at the Bank, and about 12 weeks afterwards another KiO. bank note was also stopped there. Those notes had been paid into the Bank by respectable persons, and could not, we understand, be traced to the possession of any suspected individual, and they were, of course, paid by the Bank. Not a word was heard about the bank post bills until tiie 21st of the present month, when Mr Brown, the principal Marshal, received an intimation from the Bank that the bank post bill marked K 237, for 200., was stopped on that day. The bill had been transmitted to the Bank of Englandfroiu the Biaiich Bank at Leeds, into which it had been paid by Messrs. Brown and Co., who had received it from Messrs. keehati, O'Meara, and Company, of Dublin. The other names on the bill were John Balard, William Tnvlor, J. H. Craig, Gresham Hotel, T. H. Grosham, J. B. Ball. The post bill was dated I5th April, 1834, and was correct in every respect, to all appearance; but the clerks thought it very odd that a bill of so short a date should look so much older than its date pro-pounced it to be ; and upon examination of the books, it was ascertained that 1831 had been changed into 1834, so that a forgery had been committed in this case, as well as a robbery, the thieves having very coolly waited until the year arrived when the change could be made with the greatest facility. i, nreessarv inquiries. Mr. Brown immediately proceeded to i IHUlvv M ARLBORO UGH- STREET. I.Mrot'l'ANT Cask An infor mation of some importance to the Pub1'? . Magistrates. The before Messrs.

The "clauses .nivWfte.W been'grounded were inserted in the Act for the purpos e of prey nt ng the outward erection of wood-work, which, ... ca se of fare, ould assist the flame. In the present instance the veranda was constructed of iron, and that, in his judgment, rendered it a lawful erection. Mr. Alley then called wren surveyor and architects, who all gave their opinion in favour of his construction of the clause. It wis admitted on both sides that balconies were not Prohibited , but a distinction was made betwixt a balcony and a veranda : the former being defined to be a projection without a covering, and the latter a sort of covered balcony. , , ., , Mr. Conant agreed with Mr. Adolphus, and Mr. CnAMi.Kns sided with Mr. AlleyUnder these circumstances, as no decision could be come to, the information was obliged to be dismissed. TinWSTPEF.T Antraw AT SUICIDE EjlII.Y PARKINS, a , ,!nt ,viMnr was brought ud in custody of the police, charged with having attempted to throw herself into the river Ti i w thn niwsxiinfr n kfht the defendant was seen by o.n loman Diissimr to throw herself over the balustrade in one of the recesses, about the centre of the bridge, retaining hold ot the ... ,.i- i,m..r v!th lior bunds. He immediately seized her by one of the fingers of her left hand, and was endeavouring to obtain a of tlm toll-trate keepers, who had been watehine the defendant, arrived on the spot, and throwing himself over the balustrades, finding a footing on a ledge less than a loot in width, seized the defendant by the body, and in a few mtnutes, with the assistance of two gentlemen, succeeded in rescuing her from her perilous situation. The defendant struggled violently, and seemed determined to commit self-destruction. She was, however, conveyed to the station-house, where she remained during the night. Mr. Minshl'I.i. inquired of the defendant her reason for making so rasli and determined an attempt upon our mu .-Thi, ri,fnflnnt rnnlioH that it was in consequence of the ill-treat i cho lmrl received from her husband. She then, in an' to the nuostions of the Worthy Magistrate made a statement. from which it appeared that she had been married about six years to a man, who was a baker by trade, and who worked in the Kent-road, and who for the last few years had been in the constant habit, of beating her, and had latterly nearly deserted her. He had not then been home for nearly a week, and she was in a state of starvation. She had in consequence given herself up to despair, and had rashly made an attempt on her life, for which she now expressed great contrition. m M,yT.r,r,r nskori t.ho defendant whether her parents were alive? She renliedin the negative. She was the natural daughter of a inn-, who had last resided in Suffolk-street, Pall mii kw whom hn rlipd about five vears since. That gentleman was, she believed, known to the late Sir li. Birnie. The unfortunate woman then stated that the cause of her present, misery was, that her husband soon after their marriage compelled her to support him by resorting to an infamous course of life. After making this statement the defendant burst into tears. Mr. MiNsnuix asked if she was acquainted with any person into whose care he could deliver her ? Tho HnfVmrlnnt s.iirl that she had not a friend in the world. Her landlady was the only person to whom she could refer the Magistrate. sh wq t in-ospnt residinir in Grove-nlace. New Cut, Lambeth. Me tttrvuTTi directed that a constable should proceed to her wiirimrb and tirinte her Innrdladv to the office. in .? chnrt time thi constable returned, accompanied by the land lady who corroborated the defendant's statement with regard to the ill-treatment of her husband. Mr. Minshuli. then discharged the defendant after a severe ad monition, begging her not to repeat the attempt snc nan so lace.y mfiflo !lt Kllipifle. The defendant, on being brought into the office was recognised by enrnn of the officers nrosnnt. in conseauonce of her having appeared there several times durintr the last few years under rather remarkable nirenmstnnces: It would anncar that about ten vears since the de fendant was brought up in custody of some of the night patrol, having! fnnnrl hv fliem slennins- in the oueti air in Whitehall. She then nnintpft not. Mr. Kinr. as boim? her father, and detailed the circum stances of her birth. From her story it appeared that her mother (whose name was Blake, which name she then bore) had been housekeeper to a person of large fortune, who on his death left her a house and furniture situated in Great Marlborough-street, together with a considerable sum of money. With those means she opened a lodging house, which she continued for some years, when Mr. King came and lived in her house. After some time an intimacy took place, the consequence of which was the birth of the unfortunate young woman. Her mother, in the course of a few years, died, leaving her to the care of Mr. King. He had. however, turned her from his house, taking possession oi uic lurnauic, u-u. borough-street, and she had since wandered through the streets .:u t imo r? Birnie. the nresidin"' Magistrate, caused inquiry to be made into her story, which he found to be correct, and the facts being published in the newspapers, a subscription was entered into and a considerable sum raised. Mr. King shortly after appeared before the Magistrates, by whom he was prevailed upon once more to support and receive his child.

At present thev lorm two congregations, in the Gardeners' Hall.'and the other, which is composed entirely ol the truly faithful, meets in the house of Mr. Wilkinson, some time ago Minister of the Episcopal Chapel here. Mr. Tait, jnn., from Edinburgh, and a Mr. Place, a gentleman from London, officiate jointly in the Gardeners' Hall, which they state to ne merely a puim and initiating ; and when any disciple there is xounn wormy, he receives admission into the congregation of the faithful, in which only the unknown tongues and prophecy is practised, r j u tv.,w,,,i u,hn ,ith her familv and servants arrived in town from London a few days ago. has become a prophetess, and has already " spoken unutterable things" on several occasions ; auu .rci . ...... little boy, about fourteen years of age, also prophecies occasionally.

On Sunday night the Gardeners' Hall was crowded to excess. Mr. flace, wno is amuu anu goou-ioomug jv""6 " p meetin" in a rambling and incomnrehensive harangue of nearly two hours, on the 3d chapter of Jeremiah ; but such was the feeling ot displeasure evinced by many of the audicnce.that some of them spoke out in contradiction of the statements of the speaker. 1 he object of the j: .1.:1, ,..c nm'thnr n aermnn nor a lecture, was to show that Judah and Israel were typesof thcCatholic and Reformed Churches, both of which were the " backsliding children" spoken of by the prophet, and which are invited to return and obtain the " true pastors who shall feed them with knowledge and understanding, aiici me. n.ui-ing dismissed, the only feeling which a serious, a candid hearer could cherish was a mingled one of anger, sympathy, and sincere sorrow, that such pitiful exhibitions of human weakness should be so held forth under the character of divine worship. The proceedings of this sect, since their appearance here, have given some curamuna.) proofs of the wild and wayward wanderings of the human mind from the paths of rectitude and reason. We may add that the other party, called Campbcllites, which now meet in the Methodist Chapel, and which was once connected with them, still remain separate, and refuse to admit the right of the lrvingitcs to the appointment to the offices of " angels, evangelists, prophets, and pastors," on the just consideration that it is arrogant, unnecessary, &unscriptural. Orcaicck Adv. Darteori.. Shocking Occubbesck On Wednesday last, the son of Mr. Miskin, the respectable ale brewer of this town, and a youth named Thomas Davis, both about 13 years of age, imprudently climbed on the cover of the mash tub, in the brewery belonging to the former, just as it was ready lor mashing, it instantly gave aj , and they were both precipitated into the scalding liquid. The maltster hearing their screams, ran to their assistance, and with great difficulty succeeded in extricating them both, scalded in a fright.ul manner. The boy T.

On Monday last Sir James Graham, Admirals Sir T. Hardy, Dundas, and Sir T. Pcchcll, visited the Royal Dock-yard, at Woolwich, to inspect the various works. The new wet dock at the western cud of the yard is being rapidly proceeded with, as well as v,n line nf ,,-hnf nt its pxtrcmitv. This line proceeds through the middle of Trinity wharf, the outer part of which forms a kind of coffer dam for the works withm. wncn tne wan is compiu, x.i outer part of the wharf, which has been so great an obstruction to the flow of the river at this point, will be entirely cleared away. The bedding has been laid for the foundation of a building for a new steam-engine, to pump out the docks, and for general purposes. The enwine-hnnso will he situated near the centre of the old double dock ; the upper part of which having been arched over, now forms the tar and pitch store of the yard. This is an admirable adaptation tn a useful nurnose of space that had become unoccupied. The .wnaratinn of this cellar from the other buildings is an effectual safe, ciiard airalnst the hazard of fire in the inflammatory materials it contains. The double dock is to he lengthened, so that its gates may be in a line with the face of the yard. A new look-out house is in a forward state at the river steps, and will be completed before his Majesty's visit. An iron rail-way laid down across the body of the yard to the different store-houses is among the recent improvements of the nlace. and affords a considerable saving in labour. The new basin has been found to answer its intended purpose most admirably ; and the double shears, with one of its noble masts over the basin and the other over the river, cannot fail to attract the eye of the visitor; to whom the neatness and order of the whole establishment must afford a high degree of gratification. Greenwich Gaz. Fortune-Tellini; Extraordinary The following circumstances were disclosed at Kirton on Tuesday last : A young man m the service of Mr. William Mctheringham, of Gedney Km, passing a camp of gipsevs, was called to have his fortune told; lie consented and was surprised to hear that he was to become very rich in a short time, depending upon the following condition :---That he must immediately pass 30. at least through the hands of his prophetess, which must be kept a profound secret. He obtained 10. from his master, 10. from his fellow-servant, and ten sovereigns he had himself, besides 15s'., and his watch, worth four guineas more. The gipsey made a packet of the cash, which she pretended to sew up in his small clothes pocket ; he was directed to read over two short prayers while this was going on, and afterwards the watch was to bo deposited with her until Tuesday night, when she should make her appearance on his master's premises, and disclose to him where he might find "a hidden treasure of unknown value." On the following Wednesday the master determined to know the reason for which he had borrowed the money. After some equivocation he was about to return it, when to his surprise, having untied the packet he found nothing but eight half-pence and two pieces of paper representing the two ten-pound notes. He and his master immediately set out, and traced the gip-seys to a lane in the parish of Kirton, when the dupe fortunately obtained all his money except 15s Ibid. The subject on which the popular novelist (Mrs. Holland) has founded her forthcoming tale of " The Captives iu India," is understood to be derived from the actual adventures in Hindostan of an English ladv, whose eventful journals wore placed in the hands of Mrs. Holland. The perils which this lady underwent during a long incarceration in the prisons of a barbaric Eastern Prince, are without parallel, and with her surprising escape, furnish a story of the most powerful interest. The New Military Autobiography " The attraction of real scenes and actual adventures," says The Lilerury Gazette, " have an interest peculiarly their own. There is no life so varied or eventful as that of a soldier. Shakspeare has fitly described it as one of battles, sieges, fortunes, Of moving accidents by flood and field ; Of hair-breadth 'scapes i'th' imminent deadly breach,' Such has been ' The Life of a Soldier, by a Field Officer.' His career has been one of unusual vicissitude, even for a soldier. He has seen service in most parts of the world, and vividly describes the strange scenes and remarkable incidents of which he has been either the spectator or the subject. His book abounds in anecdotes, both humorous and pathetic. We predict that it will be well thumbed in every regimental library in the kingdom." SPORTING iNTBLLlGESCe. EPSOM RACES.
