Tbe boat was called the Moor, and belonred to Mr. Cbatley, of Hungerford. It was hired in the morning by the party to go to Greenwich, and was on its return when tbe melancholy accident occurred.

EASTERN STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY.- An adjourned extraordinary general meeting of the shareholder of this Company took place on Monday, at the London Tavern, at half-past two o'clock, George Braine, esq. in tbe (Uir. At tbe desire of the Chairman, Tin- Secretary, Mr. Yates, read tbe report, which stated that the directors bare been fully engaged in the examination and dweusaion of various propositions for obtaining improved communication between England and her possessions in tbe East. Tliey say The new mail communication with India, recently contracted (or h Government, while it supplies some of the deficiencies previously existing, leaves the arrangements still very inadequate It, the increasing demands of tbe traffic. Tbe overland route is necessarily objectionable in many respects. Even in its improved 6tate, promised under the next contract, tbe time from Calcutta to England will exceed thirty-five days. The first plan which came under deliberation was the organi-MtKniof anew line overland. The present lines pass either through the Mediterranean, from Southampton, by Gibraltar nh,l Malta, or through France, by Marseilles, to Alexandria. The objections discovered on examination of other plans led tbe way to the consideration of a plan submitted to your directors, which should comprise tbe elements of high speed without tbe incoi venience and great expense inevitably astending the overland route. It was suggested that steam vessels of the great power which modern science renders attainable might be despatched by way of the Cape, so a6 to accomplish the distance between England and Calcutta in the same or less time than the present transit by Southampton and tbe Desert, and with great increase of comfort and economy to the passengers. For this purpose it would only be necessary that vessels should be em-uluved possessing the speed of 15 or 16 knots an hour. It ap- jiearrd that 15 knots an hour wonld accomplish the distance to Calcutta in 32 days, 16 knots iu 30 days, and 17 knots in 28 days. Vessels of this class could therefore be prudently calculated on to pei form the entire distance in 30 to 32 days, provided only tbey were not obliged to stop and coal by the way. The next question was, whether a vessel could be constructed of power ami capacity to perform the voyage to Calcutta without stopping to coal by tbe way. Ou this point tbe whole question hinged. The power of carrying coal for the whole voyage involves tbe ilifli-rence of a cost of I2s to I3s per ton in comparison with a ' grand scale. other vmels, who condemned the captain's nl.der'mfnanu ,wnce asked if it was dark at the time? Applicant said-Certainly not; it wanted twenty minutes to niw&clock, and everything on the river could be discerned dis- U Alderman Lawrence-Then what do you want of me? Annlicant Tbe coroner's inquest will soon take place, and tbe two eentlemen on board tbe Daldia are going out of town. I want to know if I can summon them to attend, as their testimony will be important to prove the negligence on the part of the caDtain, whose name I came to ascertain. Alderman Lawrence-Do job intend to charge the captain with wilful negligence in running you down ? Applicant -Yes, sir; for it was no fault of ours, as we bad an .,, ".rinred steersman with us. Alderman Lawrence Have the bodies been fonnd? Applicant-No, sir, not yet. Alderman Lawrence Then tbe inquest cannot be held nntil they are found. Howeier, if you write to the Directors of the Company, tbey will be sure to furnish you with tbe name ot tbe captain, and tben if you will come here we will consider the propriety of granting you a summons against bim; .but you cau do nothing to detain tbe two gentlemen, who I should imagine woald deem it an imperative duty to render every assistance in their power. John Maddox, a free waterman and mate of the Daiilia up-river steam-boat, was on Tuesday placed before Alderman Lawrence, at the Guildhall, charged with wilful negligence while in cbargeof the above-named boat, and runningdown a shallop, and thereby causing tbe deaths as above described. After much other evidence, William Neary, a waterman, living at No. 1, Whitefriars, said I was standing on the barges "at Phoenix wharf, and saw the steam-boat going down against tbe flood tide, and the shallop coming up with it. The Dahlia had a great many people ou board, but was not more crowded tl.an the other boat's ou the river. I first saw her -steering from tbe Temple direct for the fourth arcb of Blackfriars Bridge. Tbe shallop bore away to tbe southward, then to tbe northward, and back again to the southward, when tbe steamer was eased and stopped, but before 6he could do so she touched tbe stern of tbe shallop. Tbe company nearly all stood up, and the boat was capsized in an instant. I was on the north side of tbe river, and tbe steamer was between me and the shallop, which was close athwart the steamer's bows. Alderman Lawrence Then how could you see the collision if the larger boat was between you and tbe steamer? Witness It was the stem of the 6teamer that touched tbe shallop, and not tbe paddle-wheel. Alderman Lawrence - Then tbe paddle-wheels did not strike the shallop at all, and it was the stem of the steamer that capsized it 7 Witness Yes, sir. Alderman Lawrence Then the steamer ran her stem into the shallop's stern? Witness I could not say that, for I believe that it was the shallop that ran upon the steamer's stem. The shallop was only just touched, and if tbey had all kept their seats tbey would not have gous down. The paddie-wheel was stopped before the collision. Tbe Dahlia is not a very fast boat, and was only going about five miles an hour, and therefore could not have had much way with her. Alderman Lawrence said, this was one of those important cases that called for the most thorough and public investigation, and as there were a great many other witnesses yet to examine, both for the prosecution and defence, he would remand the prisoner for a week ; bnt in the meantime he would accept bail for the prisoner in two sureties of 20 each, and his own recognisances in 40. Bail was ultimately put in, and tbe prisoner liberated. EXTRAORDINARY AND MIRACULOUS ESCAPE OF FOUR HUNDRED LATTER-DAY SAINTS. On Monday evening, a most remarkable occurrence took place at Newport, Wales, which, while it appeared to involve tbe lives of three or four hundred persons, did not inflict the slightest injury on a single individual. The Latter-day Saints, or Mormonites, have of late years so greatly increased in tbe colliery districts in the neighbourhood of Newport, that an organised body now exists there, with elders and prophets at their head, and a regularly constituted Government to direct their spiritual and temporal affairs. Annually these people hold a conference, at which the chiefs of the body assemble, and communications with their brethren in other quarters are made. This year some of the elders who had been in the camp on tbe borders of the Great Salt Lake were expected at the Newport conference, and preparations on an extensive scale for their re ception, and for tbe general celebration of the festival, were being carried out. It was also expected, or ambiguously hinted, that miracles would be performed ; and the credulous Welsh, ever ready to follow any " new-fangled doctrine," gave ear thereto as believers. On Monday evening, after the conclusion of one of the services, the brethren, the saints, and the elders, assembled together in a large building known as Sunderland Hall, where it ii tended to celebrate the occasion by a tea festival on a taH nf 40s to 45s per ton ; which latter is the average of the cost of coal per ton throughout the overland route. Tbe consumption of coal is i. now n to be the great element of cost in steam navigation ; and if this could be reduced by two-thirds, it was obvious that great corresponding increase of speed and power uiisjhi tit oinaM.od, not only at no increase, but at an actual diminution of expense. In accomplishing this object, increased size in the vessel was a necessary ingredient, and with it an ability to provide accom-DiOilatinn for passengers and goods of the description alluded to. It is a principle in shipbuilding, now ascertained, that in proportion as the vessel is increased in size, her disposable capacity for pBsseogert and cargo increases in a higher ratio ; thus a vessel wliicli could carry her coals for the voyage to Calcutta would ne-cesssiily possess the capacity to convey a largely increased Lumber of passengers and a large quantity of measurement goods. It is equally matter of experience that tbe speed attain-ible by large vessels is greater in proportion to their i-ower than itli smaller vessels ; it was clear, therefore, that such a means of communication must possess immense advautage over any tut licrto existing, in its extent of accommodation, comfort, and cheapness. Atter deliberation and inquiry, your directors are satisfied that ntsels of the class referred to, making one voyage out and home every two months, would find a sufficient amount of passengers About four hundred persons (men. women, and children.) were sitting down, after a blessing had been invoked by the elders, and a pleasant festivity was anticipated. Suddenly a creaking noise was beard, followed by a sound like a crash of thunder, and immediately the lofty ceiling of exactly one-balf of tbe hall, divided in tbe centre of a large beam, fell almost flat upon tbe multitude below. A terrible shrieking, and screaming, and groaning ensued. Tbe resideuts in the neighbourhood, apprehending some frightful casualty, rushed out of their bouses, and were almost paralysed by tbe continued screams and groans. Presently the windows were burst out. and the affrighted Mormons appeared, terrified, screaming for help, while some actually flung themselves into the street, and others, clinging to the sills and frames, made those below shudder at their anticipated death or frightful mutilation. A scene of indescribable horror ensued. The crowd of spectators rushed towards the doors of the hall, which they burst in, as well as tbey were able from tbe mass of rubbish, &c. that had fallen inside; and here tbe spectacle was frightful in the extreme. The people were huddled together in crowds beneath the tea-tables some crowding to the windows, some rushing towards the doors, as many struggling to extricate themselves from tbe heaps of broken rafters, lime, &c. among which thev were em bedded. Assistance was rendered, and. after much difficulty. tiu manufactured goods to yield a very large return, and that the unfortunate Mormonites were extricated from their perilous that return would be subject to fewer contingencies and less condition. drawbacks than in tbe case of vessels running under contract as ; it is most remarkable that not a single Latter-day Saint re-to their structure, and as to tbe time of departure and ar- ceived any injury from this accident, although the ceiling was rival. heavy, and was quite one-balf of the ceiling of the whole hall, Upon a mature consideration of the whole subject, your di- I while attached thereto were tbe heavy pieces of timber which rectois have come to tbe conclusion of recommending to you to ! had previously supported it. It is also singular that the portion proceed with the proposed plan of buildiug steam vessels capable I of the ceiling beneath which tbe "elders" or "prophets" sat of effecting the views above expressed, on the principle of carry lug (heir own coal for the voyage to Calcutta. The it-port was adopted, and the usual votes of thanks, &c. terminated the proceedings. SOUTH-WESTERN RAILWAY. The more recent announcements of the London Necropolis Company fully clear away tbe misgivings which some of the Kiuin-Western proprietors were incliued to entertain in respect to tbe conveyance of tbe last remains of our common mortality, and which the inconsiderate, not to say profane, were at one time inclined to convert into a catut belli with the Board. The Necropolis Company is to ensure " perfect isolation and seclu-iion," on tbe one hand, and " entire freedom from interference or communication" with tbe traffic on tbe other, thus evincing an " unwonted sympathy with tbe feelings of even the humblest classes of mourners." T lie subject w as by no means well fitted for controversy, and certainty seemed to us the last that ought to be selected as a topic for abuse; but both having been freely used, we may here, "lire for all, allude to the circumstance, by simply saying it might imvt been well bad this authoritative reply to vulgar assumption been made somew hat earlier. Railway Time. PRINCE OF WALES YACHT CLUB. was perfectly uoinjured and sound Nothing less than a miracle is supposed by the infatuated Latte-day Saints to have preserved so large a number of persons from the fate of death, which appeared so inevitable ; and a great reaction in their favour will be tbe result among tbe half-converted disciples of Joe Smith who abound in this neighbourhood. Tbe remainder of the evening's services was devoted to thanksgiving fortbe miracle which bad been performed by the elders in favour of the true believers. This portion of tbe service, however, was carried ou in another hall, where there was not any risk of another miracle being worked. Another New Constitution. Louis Napoleon has been trying his hand at a Constitution, and has fixed upon a very congeuial locality for his labours. He has, in fact, been giving a Constitution to Algeria, and be begins by declaring that " Frenchmen are to enjoy in Algiers the same civil rights as they enjoy in their own country." This is a bit of humour we did not give Louis Napoleon credit for. The civil rights " enjoyed " by the French may be a very fair subject for a joke ; but the idea of putting Algiers and France on a political equality is rather too near tbe truth to be quite agreeable. Punch. Composition of a Sermon. Dr. South, a man of great learning and virtue, relieved himself of his clerical duties one summer, by travelling rather incog. He went into a country church in the north of England one Sabbath morning, and beard the rector read a sermon. In coming from the church, the rector suspected him to be a brother of the ministry, and spoke to him. He received the rector's courtesies, and thanked bim for the very edifying sermon he had preached, suggesting that it must have been the result of a good deal of labour. Oh, no," said the rector, "we turn off these things rapidly. On Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, I produced this discourse." is mat possible, sir i" saia Dr. boutb. " it took me three weeks to write that very sermon." Extraordinary Ferocity of a Horse. A case of ferocity in a horse rarely equalled has given rise to law proceedings before the courts of Rouen. On the 24th of November last a farmer uamed Blanchard, of Verclive (Eure), possessed a horse ; and in his presence, and with his consent, a horse-dealer named Lavoipierre sold it to a farmer named Delaisement, of Cornv. The next day Ulanchard told a young man in his service to convey the borse to Delaisement. The latter, however, refused to receive it, on the ground that he had learnt that it was vicious aud aangerous. In returning, the horse several times attempted to throw tbe young man, and at length, becoming quite furious at the restraint which the rider imposed upon him, he bounded erect in tbe air, and succeeded in getting bim off his back. ThP animal then rushed on him, bit bim in the breast, and tried to trample on him. The young man defended himself as well as he was able, but the horse caught tbe flesh of his thigh in his teeth, and tore it off in the most savage manner, leaving the bone exposed. He then went some little distauce, and with bis forepaws formed a hole of some depth; and then, returning to his victim, who was lying almost senseless on the ground, he smelt around him. as if reflecting how be could best drag him to the hole. Some noise, however, at the moment struck bis ear, and be galloped home. When he arrived his mouth was stained w ith blood, and bits of flesh were still adhering to it. Tbe young man who was so dreadfully treated had to have his leg amputated. He subsequently brought an action agaiust Blanchard, Delaisement, and Lavoipierre, to recover damages. A Fat Woman in Trouble at Sea. A corpulent lady, on her way to California, writes back to one of her acquaintances her experience of travelling. Here is an extract: "Our cabin has two boxes in it called berths, though cortins would be nearer the thing, for you think more of your latter end at sea a great deal. One of these is situated over tbe other, like two shelves, and these together make what tbey call a state-room.

The distance contested was from Blackwall to Gravesend and bark, and tbe following had entered : Yachts. Tons. Owners. Julia 1 Mr. W. Hutchinson. Ida 6 " E. Knibbs. A that rot 7 " A. Berncastle. Valenta. 8 ' B. Wallis. Tbe Most lUue accompanied tbe match, with a numerous and highly respectable party on board, and Mr. Gunston's Paragon, the ti'aier Witch, Calliope, and a number of other gentlemen's yachts. The start took place at half-past eleven, under tbe direction of Mr. berncastle, the Commodore, there being a fine wbole sail breeie from tbe Northward of West. I be Ida took a nice lead, winch had placed her half a mile in front as they approached Eritb, but here the Julia, in beating, showed such extraordinary weatherly qualities, that she went right away from the Valentine, with w hich she had been engaged in a very interesting race, and passed the Ida, which, although short-banded, was beautifully handled, but no match for the Gilbert flat sail ; and from Erith bands each succeeding board served to illustrate tbe beauty of the American principle. Tbe Julia arrived at Gravesend a quarter of an hour in advance of the Ida, which was followed in a minute u" the I alentine. Tbe running up in no way hazarded the fortune of tbe day. The Julia held her way gallantly, and won by tine miuule' tne ldat bNS four minutes ahead of the Yalen- iJuST1.?1;6 ecrry, and other officers, exerted tnemseWe. to their utmost to ensure tbe comfort of tbe visitors.

Calendar op Operations fob the Week. Plant Department-Conservatory -Soma management is required to keep up tbe display in this and similar structures during the next few months, as the present bigh temperature will soon bring to a close tbe blooming season with most greenhouse plants. Tbe stock of balsams and pot annuals should be looked to. and if another shift is necessary, let it be done at once ; for potting the above and other quick growing plants, the compost should be both porous and rich, tbat a clean vigorous growth may be obtained. After tbe last shift, weak manure-water may be given rather frequently, to assist tbe above ends. Neriums will be showing bloom, which will be the finer If the pots are placed in feeders and kept well supplied with water. Fuchsias, kalosanths, scarlet pelargoniums, lilium longiflorum, and eximium; and the various other plants we have recommended in former calendars, should be introduced as tbey get into bloom. In addition a number of plants from the stove may be safely allowed to bloom in tbe conservatory for tbe next two months, and if a few palms can be added, they will form an interesting feature at this season. Another difficulty will be felt in keeping these houses sufficiently cool to be enjoyable ; to assist in keeping down tbe temperature, well sprinkle every part of the interior each morning and night, and this, if practicable, may be repeated during tbe day ; tbe canvas shading may likewise be damped during very hot weather by the garden engine, which will have tbe effect of lowering the internal air considerably. Forcing Department Vinery. Ripe grapes requiring to be kept, must be shaded during hot sun, to prevent their becoming shrivelled. The change from the cloudy sky arid low temperature of June to the present extreme beat, will render the directions we have already given, under tbe head " Plant Department," in providing a supply of moisture, equally applicable to forcing-houses of all descriptions, wherein fruit is swelling; a slight shading must be applied wherever indications of scorching or burning appears on tbe foliage. The Cannon Hall Muscat, Sweetwater, and the Frontignans, having tender leaves, are the most liable to burn, either from bad glass or imperfect ventilation ; and when either exists, should be watched, as an injury done to the foliage not only affects tbe present crop, but tbe succeeding one as well. Air must be given in abundance by night as well as day; and the necessary stopping of lateral growths and thinning of fruit in the last bouse proceeded with. Pinery. Still continue to supply fruit swelling with water, and syringe frequently, but not in bright sunshine, unless tbe shading is immediately put on ; the young plants should be growing fast, and will require liberal waterings, and, in addition to air in large quantities by day, the temperature will allow for them to have a good portion by night. And during hot weather, forced fruits of all descriptions will be benefited by tbe practice. Mover Garden and Shrubbery. A complete stirring of tbe flower garden beds, to break up tbe bard crusty surface, caused by the late heavy rains, should be made before the plants get much larger. Proceed with pegging down, or tying growing plants as they advance, till they occupy their allotted space, when more freedom may be allowed them, but even tben, in well-arranged flower gardens, each bed should be perfectly symmetrical as a whole, although- forming only a part of the general design ; remove weeds as tbey appear, and pay tbe greatest attention to neatness and order, without which the richest display of flowers looks unsatisfactory. Advantage should be taken of examining the walks during heavy rains, to see tbe drains are sufficient to carry off the water, and additional drains and gates put down where necessary. In addition to the plants named last week for ornamental garden hedges, we strongly recommend Cupressus Goteniana for embellishing architectural gardens : it appears to bear the knife well, while its quick growth, upright habit, and beautiful light green foliage are strong claims for its adoption on terraces or parterres in the Italian style, where it is likely to supersede tbe upright cypress and the Irish yew, being, as we think, hardier than tbe former, and of quicker growth than the latter. Hardy Fruit Garden. Birds bave of late years become so numerous, that it requires netting in abundance to preserve fruit from their ravages. As the fruit is gathered from tbe earlier cherries remove the netting, which may serve for protecting later crops. If there are any traces of fly on the trees, let them be again well washed with tbe engine. Look over the peaches and nectarines, and in tying in tbe young wood see tbat tbe fruit is not too thick, allowing a few extra for stoning in the peach and nectarine. The nailing in the current wood ; washing and stopping those shoots not req-.iired for fruiting, are the principal things to be attended to in this department. Kitchen Garden. Take advantage of fine weather to eradicate such weeds as have sprung up during the late rains, and which the wet state of the ground has allowed time to grow. The present state of the atmosphere is likely to bring on various forms of mildew. We have seen two or three cases of disease among tbe potatoes ; and garden and field beans are in many places partially destroyed by blight. Directly ground can be got in readiness, tbe main crop of brocoli, Brussels sprouts, and winter greens of all kinds should be planted, if the weather is dry; only partially filling up the hole in planting, to allow for watering them in dry weather; or plant them with a large trowel-spade; the dibber, or setting-stick, we would discard, if possible, from all gardens. The lasc crop of peas should be sown directly, selecting an early sort for the purpose. The same rule will apply to beans. Frequently hoe between advancing crops. Cauliflowers planted in shallow holes or trenches may be slightly filled up, but not sufficiently to prevent their taking good soakings of water in dry weather. Asparagus aud seakale, making rapid growth, will be benefited by a good sprinkling of salt, and frequent soakings of liquid manure. To bave fine crowns next spring, attention to these matters should be paid to them now. We generally sprinkle a little salt along tbe celery beds before earthing them up ; it both kills slugs and worms, and accelerates tbe growth of tbe plants. Plant out a good supply of endive, and make further sowings of lettuce and other salad plants. The first celery may have a slight earthing up, first removing all suckers. Let every attention be given towards maintaining a clean and well regulated appearance among the growing crops. Falling Balconies. A poor man waf killed a few days ago by the falling of a balcony attached to a newlv-built house in Denbigh place, Pimlico. We bave before now drawn attention to the dangerous condition in which balconies are often left. It is desirable that stone bottoms for balconies should bave cantilevers, however sufficient the tailing-in may be, for fear of flaws in the stone. Many of the iron balconets that are put up are little better than nailed to a brick wall I-The Builder. The Hospital of St. Cross. Originally, besides the resident brethren, 100 miscellaneous poor were fed daily in what was called, in consequence, " Hundred Menne's Hall," but is now a beerhouse. At the present time all who apply at the gatehouse may receive a horn of beer and s'ice of bread - tbat is until two gallons, the day's allowance, bave been expended ; nor are the applicants for tbis few. An Ameiican writer, who visited the hospital a short time ago, has pointed out to his countrymen this adherence to a bequest during many centuries, as a wonderful instance of integrity and faitbkeeping, honourable to England. It may be a question, nevertheless, whether tbe spirit of the bequesi is followed out as it should be. Yon may remember friend H 's eloquent denunciation of the sour beer and dry bread which he found there, and my own experience is to much tbe same effect. Correspondent of the Builder. The Nev Patent Law. By the Amendment Bill, which lately made its way through Lords and Commons, one patent is made sufficient for the whole of the three United Kingdoms and the colonies. On payment of a fee of 5 on leaving petition for grant of letters patent, provisional protection for six months to be granted, during which the invention to be patented might be published and used without prejudice to any letters patent to be granted for same. Within six months tbis protection to lapse, unless notice to proceed given, and 5 paid, after which the following fees :-On sealing of letters patent, 65 ; on filing specification, h ; at or before expiry of third year, jC40 ; at or before expiry of seienth year, j80.

At the annual meeting of tbe donors and subscribers to the Society of Arts and Government School of Design at Birmingham, held on Tuesday in last week, the treasurer read an abstract of tbe accounts, which showed the. entire receipts for tbe year ending 31st May (including a balance in band from tbe previous twelve months of Jb lOl 3s 4d) to have been 1284 Ss 6d, of which sum j289 10s were derived from subscriptions and donations, and 156 10s 6d from students' fees. The Government contribution to tbis school is 600 a year. In the face of these facts it is astonishing to find one of tbe principal speakers at tbe meeting, without one word urging tbe manufacturing and other able inhabitants of Birmingham to increase their subscriptions, nevertheless hoping tbat Government would " see tbe propriety" of increasing their grant, which be (tbe speaker) thought ought to be doubled I Not one of those who addressed tbe meeting, if correctly reported in the local papers, could "see the propriety' of remonstrating with their townsmeu for not at least eaualling tbe generosity of the Government towards them and their interests in the charitable support of their own school of art. The Builder. Design op a Monument to the Fodndbr of the Smithsonian (U.S.) Institute. An American paper gives an account of wbat is called the " glorious design" for a monument to Smitbson, by Horatio Stone. The design has been shown at Washington, and it is hoped tbat Congress will commission the artist to execute the work for the Smithson-Iostitute. Tbe subject is symbolical, somewhat high flown, and iu some points scarcely in good taste. " Young Freedom" is the hero ; and the "sage philanthropist" Smitbson, we imagine, -is bis meutor. Franklin, however, gives him " the key of knowledge" and " the thunderbolt on tbe kite." In a group on tbe part of the pedestal fronting the statue Knowledge feeds the lamp of Young Freedom, who is garnished with his stars and stripes. Fulton holds a merited place in the sculptures, and Morse, we think, is rather too much made of : he is saying " in words on tbe scroll of tbe telegraphic machine, ' Let there be light.' " Tbe wires ascend to the frieze, and being distributed above the dome of the Capitol are borne by angels around the circle of the world. The peculiar architecture of the four quarters of tbe globe occupy tbe friese fronting tbe statue. Beneath tbe cornice, and over America, are tbe telegraphic angels, because " from thence first proceeded the ' still small voice' of the electric wires (?), and from the Capitol was the first telegraphic Word made manifest to tbe world "The Builder. Position of Mr. A W. Pugin. It has been a source of grief, and long known, tbat Mr. Pugin's mind had given way under an excessive strain of professional work and ucrvous excitement, and that he has been placed in a prirate asylum. Per-hap8o man in the profession has made greater self-sacrifices than Mr. Pugiu, and certainly no believer in the Roman Catholic faith has ever been more devoted to it, giving away all he had to build churches, schools, &c. Considering his means, no one has applied his worldly earnings as Mr. Pugin has done for tbe support of bis religious convictions. It is said tbat be is now so reduced to beggary by his religious zeal that there are no funds to support him, and tbat be has actually been renewed to & public hospital ! Not a generous friend in or out of the pale of bis religious faith to come forward to spare bim this disgrace, if he should eer recover to feel it ! Not one of the many who know what tbe Houses of Parliament owe to bis ability : not one of bis many Roman Catholic brethren who know the thousands of pounds he has spent on tbeir Church I Not even a tradesman or manufacturer, Roman Catholic or otherwise, who has benefited by executing bis designs 1 It seems to be most discreditable to such parties. I hae no faith in Mr. Pugin's notions of art ; still less in his religions beliefs ; but I respect his genius, and would gladly not see him among public paupers. If a subscription could be started to relieve him from bis present degraded position, my guinea at least is ready for such a purpose. We fully participate in the writer's remarks on this melancholy subject, and hope some endeavours will be made in the direction pointed out.-ED.l-CorrtpojidVnf of the Builder. Hot Summers. Tbe excessive heat which prevails at present gives some interest to the following account of remarkably hot summers: "In 1132 the earth opened, and the rivers aud springs disappeared, in Alsace. The Rhine was dried up. In 1152 the heat was so great tbat eggs were cooked in the saud. In 1160, at the battle of Bela, a great number of soldiers died from tbe heat. In 1276 and 1277, in France, an absolute failure of the crops of grass aud oats occurred. In 1303 and 1304, tbe Seine, the Loire, the Rhine, and the Danube were passed over dry-footed. In 1393 and 1394 great numbers of animals fell dead, aud tbe crops were scorched np. In 1440 the heat was excessive. In 1538, 1539, 1540, and 1541 tbe rivers were almost entirely dried op. In 1556 there was a great drought over all Europe. In 1615 and 1616 tbe heat was overwhelming in France, Italy, aud tbe Netherlands. In 1646 there were 58 consecutive days of excessive beat. In 1676 excessive heal. The same was the case in tbe first three years of the eighteenth century. In 1718 it did not rain once from tbe month of April to the month of October. The crops were burnt up, the rivers were dried up, and tbe theatres were closed by decree of tbe Lieutenant of Police. The thermometer marked 36 degrees Reaumur (113 of Fahrenheit). In gardens which were watered frnit trees flowered twice. In 1723 and 1724 tbe beat was extreme. In 1746, summer very hot and very dry, which absolutely calcined the crops. During several months no rain fell. In 1748, 1754, 1760, 1767, 1778, and 1788 tbe heat was excessive. In 1811, tbe year of tbe celebrated comet, the summer was very warm and the wine delicious, even at Susenes. In 1818 the theatres remained closed for nearly a month, owing to the beat. Tbe maximum heat was 35 degrees (110 75 Fahrenheit). In 1830, while fighting was going on on the 27th, 28th, and 29th July, the thermometer marked 36 degrees centritade (97 75 Fahrenheit). In 1832, in tbe insurrection of the 6tb and 6th of June, the thermometer marked 35 degrees centrigade. In 1835 the Seine was almost dried up. In 1850, in the month of Jane, on the second appearance of tbe cholera, tbe thermometer marked 34 degrees centrigade. The highest temperat'ire which man can support for a certain time varies from 40 to 45 degrees (104 to 113 of Fahrenheit). Frequent accidents, however, occur at a lesa elevated temperature."

He first sailed, n the Freelove. a collier fading between Newcastle and London, where he remained till 1748; when his master, who already perceived bis worth, and was desirous to give him all the advantages u his power, sent for bim to Whitby, that he might have an opportunity of improving himself in his profession, by aisting in the rigging and fitting out a new vessel of six hundred tens, called ILe Three Brother, in which he sailed about the latter id of June, first in two trips to London in the coa trade, and aterwards, the ship being taken up as a trans-port, to Middlebirg, Dublin, Liverpool, and Deptford (where the ship was paid oft, finishing the season in tbe Norway trade. In tbe spring of 1739 he left Mr. Walker's service, and entered on board the Martai, of Whitby, engaged in the Baltic trade. The next year ne passed in a vessel belonging to Stockton, the name of which has not been preserved ; and in 1752 he returned to Mr. Walker, wire made bim mate of one of bis vessels, the Friendship, in which capacity be continued until be resolved to enter tbe Navy ; having," to use bis own words, ' a mind to try bis fortune that way." He was furnished with a letter of recommendation from Mr. Walker, and another which at the request of several of hb friends and neighbours, was written for bim by Mr. Osbaldistoi, M.P. for Scarborough ; and thus provided,' he, in 1755, entered the king's service on board the Eagle, a sixty-gun ship, then commanded by Captain Hamer : that officer-was shortly superseded by Sir Hugh Palliser, who. much to his honour, recognised Cook's merits, and transferred him from the forecastle to tbe quarter-deck, thus laying the foundation for his future superstructure of fame. The fact should not be forgotten, when the name of Sir Hurii Palliser is called to mind. We bave no detailed accounts of the upward progress of the untutored collier apprentice, who, by the force of bis own merits alone, had at so early a period won tbe rank of a gentleman, and become entitled to associate on equal terms with the educated and the high-born. But it was rapid ; the Bame untiring energy and steady psrsuit of one abject which appears ever to bave ruled bim to the last moment of bis life, tbat of concentrating all bis energies for tbe discbarge of immediate duties, without weakening them by vain anticipations of the future, very soon procured him additional rank. Ou the 15th of May. 1759, he was appointed a master in the navy on board the Mercury, and in tbat vessel joined the fleet before Quebec, tben commanded by Sir Charles Saunders, who immediately employed him in making a complete draught of tbe channel and river of St. Lawrence, which chart was published. In September in the 6ame year he was transferred to the Northumberland, the flag-ship of Lord Colville, who bad tbe command of the squadron stationed on the coast of America ''It was here," says Captain King, "as I have often heard him say, tbat, during a hard winter,' he first read Euclid, and applied himself to the study of mathematics and astronomy, without any other assistance than what a few books and his own industry afforded him. . BEITANNT AND THE EIBLE : with Remarks on the French People and their Affaire. By J. HOPE. No. 23 of the "Travellers' Library." This and the succeeding Part are recent additions to the excellent shilling- series of works published by the Messrs. Longmans. The narrative is full of interest ; and where, as in Southampton and Portsmouth, the facility for visiting Britanny exists at a very moderate cost, we have no doubt many people will be induced to make themselves acquainted with the primitive inhabitants of the district, inconsequence of the graphic description given in the work. Tbe author thus writes of The Bretons of the present Day. In many respects the Bretons of the present day are what they were in the time of Caesar ; nor has Time's hard tooth destroyed their salient points. Primitive, too, and world old, is now, as was then, the appearance of the country. Huge rocks of granite and gneiss, vast tracts of furze and heath, here and there sprinkled with Druidical remains, -these, and the strange aspect of the people, clad in undressed skins and wooden shoes, with hair, as of old, flowing like a mantle over neck and shoulders, lead us back to the commencement of the Christian aera, rather than to the year of grace 1851. Many of the peasants are little better than savages, with all the appearance and many of the habits of the wild animal. In truth, civilisation seems to have halted on the frontiers of Britanny, affrighted by its rough exterior. Some of the towns may give a good idea of the towns of England two or three centuries ago. The narrow streets, destitute of channel or causeway, abound with lofty-timbered houses, of curious build, rising tier above tier, like the stern of a three-decker, and approaching so close at top as almost to shut out the light, with uncouth figures at the angles, and quaint devices on the walls. Some of the shops are open to the street, like booths in a fair ; and tbe goodly bales stand all exposed to tbe passer-by, who is tempted to look at them by the old London cry of "What d'ye lack ?" The modern practice of saving time and trouble, by naming a fair price, and adhering to it, is scouted here, as few nothing. In Britanny now, as in the middle ages, the market and "i me liie greai events. The condition of the lower classes is miserable, and their food poor and scanty. You need no better proof of this than their emaciated looks. Meat is seldom tasted by them, and their food is the everlasting soup (so called), made of hot water and a cabbagt leaf, and anidea of butter. With this, and bU noir porridge, they starve from day to day. Look at their stunted, un-muscular figures, and you soon see that in practice they cannot be among the camivora. Whatever may be the price of veal, calves are rare and dear ; for you may inspect a forest of legs without detecting one. The assembled stumps of the Greenwich pensiontrB would, I verily believe, measure equally with the same number of Breton legs: nor would a hump on the back be considered a greater deformity than a London footman's calf, were it to find its way into Britanny, with its plushed clothed owner. Of course, with such materials, a large amount of labour is not to be expected, and tbis must be set off against the low wages. Taking this into account, there is not so much difference between the price of labour in England and in Britanny, as I am certain an English labourer would do double the work of a Breton. The Biile is strictly forbidden to be circulated in Britanny, and we regret we cannot extract the shocking details of the persecution by the Liberals governmental and religious of France of all who attempt to circulate the Word of God. THE NATURAL HISTORY OF CREATION. By T. Lmdley Kemp. No. XXIV. of Longman's Traveller's Library. Another acceptable addition to the Library . It is a most recherche yet easily understandible book to the million. The latter part of the work gives a resume of the treatise Creation. We take the first creation, or formation of the world, as the nrst creation of each plant and animal, to be the result of miraculous power. We have seen that probably the world was first made without life upon it. and only gradually prepared for life, at tirst of a very bumble nature, to dwell upon it. We bave also endeavoured to trace the wanderings of the same particles of Pvlv w tDe inorganic world to the vegetable; and from that to the animal, and then back again. We have then considered tne more important functions of animal life, and likewise enumerated the causes of disease in man. also not only the certainty, oiit tne modes of death in him, and the action of remedies upon AiirhmeV n two ren,arks we now close tbis essay.

"Oh, yes'; and bounds, tool" replied she, eagerly. "And hounds, too!" exclaimed his lordship, with a start, and another hearty bang of the fist; adding, "Well, now, I like a woman tbat likes bounds." Amelia frowned at the unhandsome march her sister bad stolen upon her. Just then in came Jawleyford, much to the annoyance of all parties. A host should never show before the dressing-bell rings. When that glad sound was at length heard, the ladies, as usual, immediately withdrew ; and of course the first thing Amelia did when she got to her roam was to ran to the glass to Bee how she had been looking; when, grievous to relate, she found an angry hot b pot in tbe act of breaking out on her nose. "ft hat a distressing situation for a young lady, especially one with a spectacled suitor. " Oh, dear !" she thought, as she eved it in the glass, " it will look like Vesuvius itself through his formidable inquisitors." Worst of all, it was on the side she would have next to him at dinner, should he choose to sit with his back to the fire. However, there was no help tor it, and the maid kindly assuring her, as she worked away at her hair, that it " would never be seen," she ceased to watch it, and turned her attention to her toilette. CHAMBERS'S EDINBURGH JOURNAL. June Part. As usual Chambers's Journal contains a variety of instructive and entertaining- articles, too numerous lor us to detail, but all excellent reading. We take an extract from The Old House in Crane Court. Tbe roaring pell-mell of the principal thoroughfares of London is curiously contrasted with the calm seclusion which is often found at no great distance in certain lanes, courts, and passages, and the effect is not a little heightened when in these oy-plares we light upon some old building speaking of antique institutions or bygone habits of society. We latelv had this idea hronffht strife. ingly before us on plunging abruptly out of Fleet-street into Crane-court, in search of tbe establishment known as the Scottish Hospital. We were all at once transferred into a quiet narrow street, as it might be called, full of printing and lithographic offices, tall, dark, and rusty, while closing up the further end stood a dingy building of narrow front, presenting an ornamental porch. A few minutes served to introduce us to a moderate-sited hall, having a long table in the centre, and an arm chair at the upper end, while several old portraits graced the walls. It was not without a mental elevation of feeling, as well as some surprise, tbat we learned that this was a ball in which Newton bad spent many an evening. It was, to be quite explicit, the meeting-place of the Royal Society from 1710 till 1782, and, consequently, during not much less than twenty years of the latter life of the illustrious author of the Principia, who, as an officebearer iu the institution, must have often taken an eminent place here. We were not, however, immediately in quest of tbe antiquities of the Royal Society. Our object was to form some acquaintance with the valuable institution which baa succeeded to it in the possession of this bouse. sets at 3 minutes nasTs 'if 8 " 9 minu,es Pa8t Son vTEDNbr- ii"""' died. 1632 Lord WilliamJi!

LONDON CORN EXCHANGE, Monday. rhe weather last week had a very beneficial effect on the growing crop of Wheat, and tended very much to dissipate the fears which the very unkindly weather in the month of June bad created ; but as the one extreme bad not occasioned any particular rise in prices, neither had the other exercised any material decline. The Wheat trade has, however, been exceedingly depressed all tbrough the country. The supplies brought forward by the farmers in the provincial markets have not been large, but as tbe buyers were generally anxious to reduce their stocks rather than add to them, they were enabled to purchase Wheat on somewhat easier terms. At this morning's market the fresh supply of Wheat was unusually small; but the heat of the weather occasioned the demand to be very limited, and last Monday's prices were scarcely obtained. The arrivals of Foreign Wheat were large, and there were nearly 20,000 barrels of American Flour in during last week. The trade was exceedingly dull, and to have effected any sales of consequence lower prices must have been taken. Malt remained without variation. The large arrivals of Foreign Oats caused a decline of Is per quarter, and at tbis decline the dealers were not free buyers. Peas and Beans continued exceedingly scarce, and the prices remained about the same. Flour was very dull in sale, the extreme heat of the weatner naving materially reduced the consumption.

Awaking from bis light repose, Tbe angel whispered to the rose, " Ob, fondest object of my care, Still fairest found where all are fair. For the sweet shade thou'st given to me, Ask wbat thou wilt, 'tis granted thee." " Then," said the rose, with deepened glow, " On me another grace bestow."

English Wheat ruled heavy, at prices barely equal to those of Monday. There was scarcely any inquiry for Foreign Wheat, but we bave no fnrtber decline to notice in tbe quotations. Floating cargoes of Wheat and Indian Corn were much neglected, though offered on somewhat easier terms. The sale for Barley was heavy, and low Foreign qualities were the turn cheaper. A very dull inquiry for .Malt, at barely late figures. The Oat trade was in a depressed state, at Monday's decline in the currencies. Beans, Peas, and Flour, were quite neglected. SM1THFIELD, Monday. The general tone of trade at Smithfield to-day was somewhat brisker, and better prices were obtained in some instances. Of Beef there was a good supply, all of which sold by the closing hours of business, and the prices were 2d per stone above the rates of Friday last. Veal was in excellent demand, at a similar advance in price. Tbe supply of Mutton was similar to that of last Monday ; the trade was generally good, but no rise took place in prices. In Pork no change occurred. Statement of Prices and Number of Cattle at Market. 3. d. . ii. Beef Mutton 3 0 Veal 9 8 Pork 3 0 Lamb 4 10 Beasts Sheep and Lambs Calres ..........
