The Alfred Club house-This establishment excited a deal of curiosity, from the manner in wbicb it was decorated, in f.ontof the balcony were bis MajeHy's initials, with a IV. in the centre, and an imperial regal coronet at top, of great magnitude. Tbe whole was brilliantly illuminated by 2,000 jets of gas, aupplied from tbe main pipe. The whole was encircled with wreaths or laurel. In Bond-street, Piccadilly, and tbe Strand, the Royal tradesmen's bouses were more or less illuminated. In the City tbe illuminations were not very general. In Holbom ae%-eral of bis Majesty's tradespeople displayed illuminatious of very brilliant and splendid appearance. Among tbe grandest were those of Mr. Schenci4er, Mr. Marshall, Mr. Lincoln, Mr. Long, and Mr. Mott, who exhibited a curious transparency, of which the following is a description : Britannia, seated in a car, drawn by ten horses, h.)lding in berbaad a medallionof her favourite ; while Fame, in a lof^y situation, is proclaiming to the worid the excenencies of our Monarch ; with one or two well-conceived attendants; on one ,side of Ibis spacious transparency " G."

" Tbe island of Luconia is tbe birgest and most important of all the Phillipincs; it is of an oblong, obtuse, angular, form; lying in the general direction of the south e-ist, and north-northwest, and the angular point is on the west side.  The northern section is tbe bros3est, being in the widest part 40 leagues over, from east to west, but its average brisadth is considerably less than this. Tbe fine bay of Manilla, 30 leigues in circumfiirence, is situated .near the muldle of tbe west aide of the island, and has good and clear anchorage in all parts of it, exceptiog on a coral ledge, calle.l the vShonlof St. Nicholas, vrtiich is tbe only invisible danger m tbe bay. Tlie dangeTOOS part of it is, however, of small extent, and with proper aUention Easily avoided , tbs least water found on it at present is eleven feet, but iU summit fs con-dtantly approaching the surface of the sea, as has been ascertained by surveys made at different periods by orders of govern-n�ent, which citcumstance seems to Indicate the presence of Zaopbyteii, that compound of animal and vegetable life,'whose incessant and rapid labours, and, as we are told by naturalists, whose polypus-like powers of receiving perfti t form and pJtaiity into nuiubecJess portions pf tbeir bodies, bavp long tixdtfd much curiosity and admiraii(�n. "^Iiese small, compouud i^it, comineuce their operations at tbe bottam of the sea, morfVunmiMpf'^ tbe su(/acc, spreading tliemselves tii^n of these Ihtla eofcaliiaiKniys Winr ftfe'?Bw��whi its tnm genernti's myriads bf others, and �o on, adinfinitwn, till they reach the surface of the ocean. These coral reefs and aboals are foaad in naost parts of lite world, within tbe-tropics^ but the waters of the el.^ten^ beu:isphere seem CD be peciifiariy congenial to their pro<luclion, and, indeed, there appear to be certain spaces or region* in these 8ea#, which arc tbeir favourite haunts. Amtmg many others may be mentioned "the Moziiiu-bique channel, and that tract of oce�n from tt . eastern coast of Africa, quite acnias the coast of Malahur, iacludipg the Mahe, Chegns, Maldivc and Laccadive Archipelago ; the south-eastern part of the China sea ; the Red sea \ tbe c.-vstem part of the Java sea; between Celebes and Java; the roasts of all the Suoda islands ; and various pbiccs in the Pacific ocean. These shoals, when ihey begin to emerge from the se.n, arc frequented by aquatic fowls, whose A.-atbers, and otlier deposits, romliined with tiie fortuitous landing of tbe drifts of wood, weeil.-., and varioiu. Other sulntances fj-oin ibe adjacent lands, in tlie course of time form Bupcraqueous banks of considerable elevation ; and the broken fragments of coral thrown up by the waves, (iloarly, but consUtntly, mcrease tbeir horizontal diameter. Cocda nuts are frequently seen floating upon the sea in these regions, some of which are no doubt thrown lipon the shores of the new-Created lands; from which accidenUl circumstance this fruit is thcrepro-pagated. Vagrant bir/ls unconsciously deposit tbe germ's of various other productions of the vegetable kiuirdom, whifrb indue season spring up and cl�ihe their surface* with verdure; and the natural accumulation of dead and pnirid vegetation, serves to assist in tbe formation or a rich and productive soil, an'd to increase the altitudes of ihese tiew ircntions.

Tbe tliirteeutli annual exbiliition of the Society of Painter.t s' W.iier-colours opened on Monday. We were greatly gratified with tbe display of talent it exhibits. Prout has added lo hi* re|)uiatijn by works which ronsiderably surpass all his former productions. " The South Porch of Rouan Cathc�h-al," and tbe " Porch of Ratisbon Cathedral," Nos. 278 *nd'27'J. are admirable specimens of picturesque architectural repfraentation. His two Sea Views, Nos. 90 and 105, are almost equally happy, though the colouring seouis, in parts, to be a little overcharged. We wei^ much pleased with Mr. Copley Fielding's *' Scene froui rAllea^ro," No. 100, which poaaesses a cimsUcrable d�-grcc of poetic character, though it ia perhaps inferior lo m.tny of bis smaller works, as far as regards the faithful imitation of Mtnte. , ** A acene hithrHi�hW�ndf.^* Na.���- ia oiwof bia Robson liii. s viaim, while bis countenance was suffused witli a grim and ghi^stly smile, wbicb re^ minded us of Dante's devils. He immediately ascended the ladder, dragging his prey after him till tliey bad nearly reached tbe top ; he then placed the lope ronnd the neck of the male-^ctor wiih many antic gestures and grimaces, highly gratifying and amusing to tbe mob. To signil^ to the poor fellow under his fangs, that he wished to whisper in his ear, and to push him off the ladder, and to jump astride bis nect with his heels dnnri-ining with violence upoa his stomach, was but tbe work of aii instant. We could then perceive a rope fast to each leg of the sufferer, which was polled with viokate by people under the gaRows; and an additional rope, to use a apa term, a preventer, was round bis neck, and secured to tbe allows, to act "in case of accident to tbe one by which the body was suspended. I had witnessed many executions iu different^ parts of the world, but pever had such a diabolical acene 'as this passed before my eyes; and no little disgost and t^ Ifrar, that kind of satisfaction wbicb a child feels ait a rarise show."
