The head of the coffin was in contact wilh a black velvet screen, raised perpendicularly, and bearing the escntcheohs, with the arms quarterly-Talbot and Chetwyuil impaling Lambert. Four standards, with mourning decorations, were placed, one at each corner of the bier, which �up-ported the body, and which was also enclosed by black silk ropes, drawn horizontally, to prevent too near an approach of spectators. The Vice-Regal pew in the gallery, and the cor-respoiidi^ig one at ihe opposite side, were hung willi black cloth, the former decorated with the family arms, as alteady noticed ; the pulpit was also hung with black cloth. U'iih the whole arrangements such embletns of death were connected as could best udd to the solemnity of the ceremony, and strike ilip observer wilh such reflections ;is may fit him for that state to which this lamented Lady has been transferred. The melancholy procession moved to the water bide this day in the following order : - Dragoons. HEARSE. Carriagrs of ihe Household. The Lord Mayor. Great Officers of'State. Peers and Peeresses. Privy Counsellors. And other Cairiag's in succession. The cariidges wpre extremely numerous, amounting to some hundreds.   The streets were lined by the military, the shops were shut, and tivery demonstration of respect auil regret bus been inauilcstcd upon tliis iuiuentable occasion. Amongst the latest arrivalii' at'Ryland's flotel are-Visconnt and Viscountess GortnausUin, Hon. Arihur unci iVjis� .Pfeston, Hon.

The EatI of Farnham is rapidly recovering From the effi-cls of his late severe fall.

On Monday evening last Mr. John Thompsmi, Coroner, held an inquest on the body of Philip Ryan, which was found in the river Suir on the ' above day. Patrick Uaniel, servant to iVlrs. Kennedy, of Grenane, county Waterford side of the river, opposite the House of [ndustry. being sworn, deposed in substance as follows:-On Friday, the 3l8t December, Mrs. Kennedy having been win-nowin<; corn, saw two men viewing some timber ou her fiirm, and told witness (Daniel) that she suspected that they inteuiled to steal some of it; witness was at that niglit at a neighbour's hou.'k Itingdoin, the excess of the latter aba*e tlie^ former, uiuuunled only lo609,315. At this period. Ulster contsineif 360,634 Protestants, and 153,028 Rmuaii Callio-lics ||. In the year I75'3, the whole population had increased to 2,317.584.** We are confident that at present there are above six idiIIiohs of inhabitants in this island. The Proieslauta, however, have not increased in the same ratio with the Roman Caihohcs, whose numbers are augmented, not merely by hundreds of thousands, but by millions. To what causes are we to attribute this disparity in the respective increase of numbers in these two religious communities, which flourish in the same country, and under the same government i- Are the Roman Catholic clergy more uclive and persevering iu ihe performance of their duty, than those of the differtnt Protestant communions, in Ireland ?   Or do the Catholic laity form matriiiia-nial engagements with less hesitation or more early in life-trusting that a|beneficent Deity will afford them the means of providing for their issue ?   Or have   the   emigrants   lo  America   been chiefly Protestants?   Or have the penal laws uperuird as a bond of union, amongst the people against whom they were enacted ? Have they not diffused through the whole body a spirit of unanimity, and induced them  to adhere more steadily lo the religion for which they have suffered so much, and to the country which bus so long witnessed their endurance ^ It cannot suiely be presumed that the Roman Catholics pay more respect than the ProlesliJTirs^o the primary commandinent, " Increase and multiply." 'i'hesejire curious questions, which we would wi�b to see discussed by some writer more able than we are to do justice to so inlrii-ate a subject. .  Notwithstanding the vast increase �u ibe population of ttiis kingdom during the last two centuries, some of our towns have fallen into dei'ay, and of others 110 traces can now be found.   InShe barony of i\Jagherastephan, in the county of Fermanagh, theie was a pofiuious town or village, called G^^la, or Gola,   situated  near the eastern side of Lough Erne.    Here also was a monastery of Dominican Friars, of no small extent, founded by the ancient and princely Sept of Mac iManus.or Mac Maguus-ff, a branch of the regal lumily of the Magiiires.    At present we fear it would be almost as difficult to find the site of this ancient town,  as to discover the tomb of Priaiu, or the bed-charabtr of Semi-rainis.

[Frsm The Newry Telegraph.^ In October, 1756, Luuncelot Watson, High Constable nf Newry, made a census of that portion of the town which is situated in the county of Down, aii'l found the number of inhabitants to be 3,679. Of these, 2,430 were Piotestants, and 1,249 "fi'' Roman Catholics. We extract the account of this census, from a register of the proceedings of the Manor Court of Newry, commencing the 37th of October, I7I!), and the Seneschals.hip of Han? Hamilton, E�q. and terminating the 30Ui of April, I765, when George Anderson, Esq. was Deputy Seneschal. At present, that district of Newry, which lies in the county of Down side of the river, contains above 11,000 persons-and of these a great majority profess the Iluinuii Catholic religion. Statistical wri'.ers ougiu to investigate the causes which have produced so iniiked a change in so short a period. At that period, the population of th?it part of Newry whicii is sitnaieif in the county of Aimagb, was so tiivial, that It appears not to have been deemed worthy of a census, by Mr. L. Watson.- At present it coolains (mcluriing Ballybot) 392 houses, inhabited by -2.^70 persons, of whom 1,060 are maUs, 1,2 10 females.* On the 8lh of .4ni;�st, I6C4, the citizens of �Dublin " were numbered, aud found to be-of Protestants, a,565 m-n, and .2,930 woiBen--j)f il-man Catholics, l,'i02 men, awd 1,406 women," in alt 8,103 full grown per�ous;f Wha^ a prodigious change hai; takea place in the capital of �  As per census talicn in the year 1814, purMaut to Act of J'arliau)ent. .

" [From Carricli's cnul}linj Morning Pml.] A correspondent has sent us (lie foiliaving curious extracts of letters from Mr. Walter Cox. It appears bv the latier, that he is about to return to Ireland! " Uuehec, Ijjwrr Canada, Octoher 12, 1819. " My DeaE Clare-1 arrived in lhi� cily a few days mice, having fled from the yrlloiv fevr-i. which rages in New York; half of the inhabiianis had deserted that ill-fated town, before my pecuniary circumstances enabled me to shew to my friend* it was not temeriiy so moch as necessity, that made me so apparenily coura^eons, us-^ to dely an eHeniy who jiays no re>pecl to courajfe nor lu cowardice, lo age, ynntli, or to sex. " 1 have, thank God ! escaped the unspuiing tind remorseless yellow fever, but at so heavy an expense, my condition is suiiiething similar to lU* provident man, who on an alarm of hre, flung n valuable looking-ijlass on the pavement, to save it from the fl.imes; the costs of my excmsions, of my fears, will amount to 200 tlullars, as the di'.liiini' is at least 520 milea, and the jouri.ry principal'.v ill sieam-boats, on the Hudson, Luke Cnaiuplum, and the majestic St. Lawrence, " I actually write this ou the celebrated plains of Abraham, and to {^ive adequate importance tii my most important communication, on the very sfiot wliere WoMe expired. You agtiiu perceive, though pressed ilown by want of means, and angry to be separated from my dear country, and social society, so peculiar to Ireland, that notions of grandeur prevail over my sense of adversity, sharp and gloomy as it is. . " Quebec is further illustrated by the deaths of Montculms, of Montgomery, and the Duke of Richmond, a recent circumstance, of which you must have heard before this can reach Ireland.- His Grace was greatly admired in this proviucf, and is very seriously lamented, for, to the credit of Etigland, she is kiud and indulgent, aud understood to be 10 ill her Colonies, of which no ationgrr proof can be exhibited, than from the attachment this Gatholic people evinced, by rejecting the introduction of that' blaftphemouB philotopby nhich their couutrymen Daittonand Bristot us�d tn d�iiir. laliijg France, and le�e|liiig its .altars,; for no pen. pie are more religioiit, ())0^e indnstrmu'*,, or more hospitable than the Caiiadiaqs.hieioK strict iiithi^ir notion! of moral and ndercantite principle, itie very
