A vote of thanks having Lieen passed to or. Macaulay tile president called upon or. I Dohig to read is promised paper on a a Naseby the following is a a1 sit met of the paper on a former occasion i had the honour of submitting to the members of the Leicester literary and philosophical society such As a somewhat extended examination of existing records enabled me to collect in relation to the siege and reduction of Leicester by the royalist forces in 16-15. It is my intention this evening to Lay before our society a More detailed account than is furnished in works treating generally upon the great cml War of the memorable engagement which almost immediately following that last and Short lived Success of the arms of diaries the first May be considered As absolutely decisive of the struggle Between King and parliament. Tile interest which attends the narrative of such events As Well As Hie prominent position which they usually occupy in the writings of historians has often afforded matter of complaint to the philanthropist in whose eyes that ordeal of Battle by which the judgment of an All benevolent Providence has been so often i piously challenged and prof Anely declared to have been revealed seems at once the most terrible and the least rational method of determining disputes Between individuals or communities. I have neither the wish nor the intention to dispute the soundness of such a conviction or to impugn the Justice of such a complaint. Yet without entering upon the question whether a state of warfare is in itself justifiable without attempting to vindicate the in which it is ordinarily conducted thus much May be observed in explanation of the eagerness with which the records of important military transactions Are invariably and universally perused. If the hour of conflict allows an unrestricted development to the worst Aud fiercest of human passions it also often witnesses a display of the noblest and most generous qualities of which the nature of Man is capable so far As the latter can be exemplified by unselfish devoted Ness by mortal sufferings disregarded and death itself cheerfully encountered in defence of a cause believed to be founded on equity arid Iii the strength of this belief at All hazards unhesitatingly maintained. To these considerations May be added the critical nature of every operation and the magnitude of the consequences involved in every stage of the struggle when the Fate of nations or of dynasties is submitted to the Stern determination of the sword. By the discipline or disorder of a single battalion by a single evolution ably or a skilfully executed by the neglect of an apparently trivial precautions by the prompt seizure of Tho Opportunity afforded by a passing moment a has often Lieen determined the Rise and fall of empires and consequently the Success or failure of principles the establishment or the subversion of rules of policy and government calculated to modify for evil or for Good the condition of successive generations and to affect to a greater or less degree tile fortunes of tile whole human race. Among conflicts maintained under such circumstances and followed by such results that of which the Field of nastily was two centuries since the witness is eminently conspicuous. It subverted an ancient monarchy absolute for the time a democracy As ancient and loft upon both an impress which May be recognised to the present hour in every feature of our system of constitutional government. By every englishman therefore the Swine of this eventful transaction May Well lie considered sacred. To ourselves in addition to its More general claims to notice it possesses those of a close connexion with our local history and of a Vicinity to our place of residence which makes it easy of inspection at will. The districts and villages comprehended in the preparatory manoeuvres of the contending armies arc familiar to most among us. A few hours will Amable us to stand where Cromwell harangued his Iron squadrons in the language of assured Victory where Rupert swept before him in headlong confusion the sturdy horsemen of Ireton and Fleetwood and where the most ill fated of the stuarts looked Down upon the irretrievable wreck and confusion of the last Force which remained for the support of his imperilled Crown. There every vicissitude of the deadly fight May still be satisfactorily realised. For in the first place the contemporary documents which relate to Naseby Field Are not Only numerous but singularly in accordance with each other an agreement the More remarkable inasmuch As with regard to the other great engagements of the period such As Edgehill Marston Moor and the first and second Battles of Newbury we have Little More than obscure and contradictory evidence. And in the second place the natural features of the ground As Well As the traces of mortal Contention which in certain parts it still exhibits Are too distinct easily to allow of room for doubt or misconception. These however Are now fast altering with the lapse of every succeeding year. The plough has already converted what was once a wild and sterile Moor into a series of enclosures Rich with every kind of agricultural produce. Farmhouses and cottages covers and plantations Are rising to break the continuous View of those positions which Iii the memory of the present generation might have been studied with As much facility Sis if Laid Down on ii military Chart. The still increasing demands of modern agriculture will soon reduce to a uniform level with the rest of the Plain Trio so deeply sunk inequalities darkly intimating the Points where the strife was once at the hottest and where the remains of Friend and foe were afterwards hastily committed to a common grave. Among the reasons which have determined me in the selection of the pre sent Majier not the least is the consideration that it May add to Hie Means of keeping in memory some of the yet existing vestiges of the crowning conflict of 1645, and of guiding the Steps of future visitant Over that solemn Arena of the strife of our forefathers when most other intimations of the event for which it must be immemorial by celebrated arc lost. The lecturer then went on to explain the relative positions of the two parties Between which England was divided at the conclusion of the unsuccessful attempt at Diego citation commonly known As the treaty of Uxbridge Aud gave a succinct account of the movements of the Royal army after leaving Oxford on its expedition to the Relief of Chester. He afterwards noticed the siege of Leicester and quoted the following unpublished letter or memorial sen re by lord ii Ugborough to Brince Rupert in 1643, As a proof that the royalists had Long before been acquainted with the weakness of the chief parliamentary garrisons in the Midland counties. The document or. Hollings said was simply endorsed a a lord Loughborou invites the Prince to take Derby and Leicester a and ran in the following words a to the Prince. That if his Higi Inesse please to come Down with one thousand musketeers and a thousand horse and some Twenty bar rills of powder i shall attend him with a thousand horse Aud a thousand Amite and if he please to provide men a thousand muskets i Call putt new men into the garrisons and draw out All the old. With this strength and with Goddis assistance i doubt not hut Hee will easily take Derby Aud Lycester. Anil if Hee please to commando Inee in the Ordo luge provisions for the army i will undertake to see them Well accommodated tile coi Mtrey pleased and his Higi Inesse have tweetie thousand pounds those two Townes being taken which i Ain confident will yield upon sinuous they i avenge Linn very Deere Dominge of it to Nice already. This will much Advance his majesties service leaving them without meanies to pass any animation into Lancashire Aud cult of much provision from London Northampton and Coventry. And As a further Testai Nony of our Dutiful thankful ties to his High use we the Cli Eife gentlemen his majesties Loyall subjects will petition the hinge to receive the expelled wee have scene att in his majesties service according to his Lillig Tiesse pleasure Anil that to Bee Payd out of the Rebello a estates Iii those counties and that the remainder May Bee for the use of his Higi Inesse out of which wee will undertake to Rayse him a very considerable sum.

The workes at Derby Are Over Large and such another River As St Lycester and Boe More men to defend them. By the cite i May he furnished with Canon and acres for which i can quickly have men to attend his Higi Inesse upon Auy other Dengue Ami it is probable it will much affright Coventry to have his Higi Inesse on this Side with an army his Majestie Wing on the other hut if these Neastez of recoils continue All Winter wee May Feare if not removed by his Leigh Jesse Savoure they w ill increase their strength and in ploy those forces under my Couraud lie Ere. Wee May Doe his Majestie service elsewhere hut Donlita less the necessity of the it Walls keeping them for a passe into Lancashire Aud Bruceton will Rause their masters att London to add More strength unto them Iff not speedily prevented. After leaving a sufficient Garrison in Leicester the King it appears directed his March by Newton Harcourt to Harbo Rouglin and from thence to Daventry. Here after receiving news that the siege of Oxford had been abandoned by Fairfax lie paused for a few Days to cover the re Victualling of Oxford. In the meantime Fairfax having obtained permission from parliament to summon Cromwell to his assistance was marching on Daventry with the intention of bringing the Royal forces to a decisive engagement. The movements which afterwards ensued were described at some length. On the evening of the 13th of june Fairfax was at Guild rough having despatched a reconnoitre no party under Ireton towards the Village of Naseby where a rear guard of Prince Rupert a troopers was surprised and prisoners. A part however escaped carrying intelligence to the main body that the army of the parliament was close at hand on the evening of the same Day Charles w As at Lubenham where the place in which he took up his quarters was thus desc relied a a in the meantime the Royal army wearied with the fatiguing March of the Day was resting Iii fancied Security at liar Borough and the villages adjacent. The Advance under Rupert was station a in the town. Tile baggage and ammunition were at some four Miles Distant. The i Al a guards were probably posted at Lubenham where the i King and his attendants occupied the same House belonging to major Hawksworth which had been previously for two Day their residence we Eisou their Way from Leicester to Daventry. This was Lii Fra substantial manorial building constructed in the usual style of architecture prevalent during the Tudor period and protected by a Strong Boundary Wall and surrounding Moat. What yet remains of the place is eminently in keeping with Tho melancholy reminiscences of which it is suggestive. Tile once trim Avenue connecting it with the Village is now represented to a narrow Lane choked with matted grass and dark with the Luxuriance of an unwholesome vegetation. The Moat has diminished to a few Green and stagnant pools. The fragment of the mansion still standing has been divided into cottage tenements roofed with fast decaying Besin and with sinking floors in the last stage of dilapidation. A few Yards in front the River Welland flows mournfully past through a Channel overgrown with lushes after leaving a Ford where it Waters Are said to have been once reddened awl choked by tha wrecks of tin famous Field which it All but skirts. A Gigantic Sycamore whose murmurs two centuries ago May have soothed the slumber of Royalty casts a Shade All hut funereal Over what in old times was a terraced Garden but is now a Mere waste plot overgrown with sedges and thistles. Spectral traditions Are not wanting to add to the gloomy interest of the spot. A wild legend which has found its Way into postal is history off Southwell and is yet current at the Winter hearths of Many a Leicestershire and Northamptonshire Homestead affirms that Charles on the night before commencing Bis Retreat from Daventry was warned by a shadowy form bearing the lineaments of lord Strafford against giving Battle to the army of Fairfax inasmuch As within its ranks a As one whom he would never be Able to conquer and the apparition is said to have a second rims shown itself for a similar purpose in the Manor House of Lub bedlam. Altogether it would be difficult to imagine a site seemingly better adapted to is the resting place of a mini Asch about to stake his Crown his Liberty and his life itself upon the perilous chances of Battle Ami fated to lose All by the a a in the second volume of Evelyn a memoirs will be found a letter despatched by Charles from Lubenham to sir Edward Nicholas almost immediately before his receipt of the intelligence which the Battle of Naseby unavoidable. It is comprised in the following words a a a in Henham 13th june 1645. A a Nicholas a this is first to Send the enclosed by your Means to the Queen then to let Yon know that you Are like to Baar from me to Morrow. I March to land Abbey after that to Melton and so to Belvoir but i assure you i shall look before i leap further North but i am going to supper. So i rest your most assured Friend. A a for a a endorsed 17th june 1645. The King to me before the Battle of a from tins it appears that up to a late hour of the 13th of june the King had not the least expectation that Fairfax was sufficiently close to impede his March nor that the next Day would witness that desperate Contention which was to determine whether King or parliament was in future to give Laws to Tho remainder of the paper was devoted to the movements of the two armies immediately before and during the Battle of Naseby. The positions occupied by each on the Field were illustrated by a Large plan exhibiting Tho place held by each regiment at the commencement of the engagement. Cromwell was represented As occupying the Eminence of Lodge Hill. Tile infantry of the parliament was with its right terminated by the regiment of Fairfax upon Bills Bitch Fiill and its left ending with that of major general Skippon upon red Hill. The left Wing composed like the right entirely of cavalry extended from red Hill As far As sulky Hedges which were Lilied with colonel Okeyo a dragoons. In this Boundary of the Field of Battle Many Trees still remain which must have been Green and vigorous at the time of the action. The Kings left Wing under sir Marmaduke Langdale and sir William Blackstone stood on the Low Eminence immediately fronting Lilge Hill and overlooking what was at that time a Rabbit Warren overgrown with Furze and Brushwood. His Centre under lord Astley was advanced a Little on the open Flat of Broadmoor. The reserves under Charles in person crowned the rising ground of Dustbin close to the present farm House. The right Wing of the royalists extended nearly from dust Hill farm to Sulby Hedges. After describing these positions tile lecturer gave a detailed account of the Vicissitudes of the Battle the subsequent flight of the royalists and the fierce Pursuit of the parliamentarians. Of the direction taken by Charles in Bis Retreat to Leicester he said a a Charles induced at length to quit the Field by the alternative of certain Captivity hastily with his suite for a neighbouring Ford Over the Welland and after crossing tile Stream held on for the same place of Refuge towards which the rust of his adherents were flying. At Wistow Hall is still preserved As an heirloom a Saddle covered with Crimson velvet which after using it in the Battle he is said to have left behind him on his Way from Naseby to Leicester. Nothing indeed can be More probable than that the King sought at the House of sir Richard Halford at Wistow a relay for the horse which had carried him from Early morning throughout the greater part of a Day of uninterrupted exertion Ani conflict and it is equally reasonable to suppose that the urgency of the occasion was too great to allow the Rich Caparisos of the Royal Charger to lie placed on the one substituted for one melancholy incident in the Pursuit was mentioned As follows a a a Between Naseby Aud Harborough the Pursuit was equally fierce and marked by an of unmanly cruelty for which although it is said to have been committed in retaliation for a similar atrocity perpetrated by the royalists in Cornwall it would be useless to Otter a word of justification. Near Farndon amidst the wreck of overturned waggons and carriages the victorious horsemen surrounded a crowd of from two to three Hundred Lomeii attached to the Defeated army. Many were slain without mercy upon the spot and the rest for the most part marked by ghastly wounds which disfigured them for the remainder of their lives. The fact is unquestionable for it is fully attested by writers of both parties. Clarendon computes those actually killed at a Hundred a number exactly in accordance with the statement of a parliamentary journal of the Day which coolly taunts its adversaries with the loss in addition to that of their bravest soldiery of a a Hundred harlots with Golden the authority first quota adds that among the slain were several wives of officers who had come thus far from liar Borough to lie As near As possible to the objects of their natural solicitude. The parliamentary writers assert that they were Irish of the lowest Grade and character. One goes so tar us to affirm that they were armed with knives at the time for the purpose of despatching the wounded. The scene of the massacre is still remembered and passed with Awe and trembling by the benighted countryman. I May add that a few years since the Sexton of Farndon while digging in a part of supposed never to have been used before for purposes of burial disinterred a no Iii a of female skeletons which were supposed to be the remains of the victims in the lecturer concluded by citing the two Well known despatches sent from Clarborough by Cromwell and Fairfax to Icin Tinl the speaker of the House of commons immediately after the engagement. Upon Tho former letter lie remarked a a it will be observed that in the despatch of Cromwell is to be seen an ulterior meaning which could not fail of being apprehended by the presbyterian party in general. It was in truth a Plain intimation that their Ascendancy was at an end and that the writer was perfectly aware How far the Success which he recorded was certain to be productive of this result. Such indeed was the fact. Although unmentioned Iii the letter of the Coin Mander in chief Cromwell was regarded throughout England As he is at the present Day As the great hero of the conflict of Naseby. His opinions it political and religious were considered to be represented by the victorious army. His spirit was thought to have inspired the Stern soldiery of which it consisted in their successful encounter with the practical veterans of the King. By his counsels it was believed that the conduct of the Battle had been directed. By his decisive Energy it was fully known that the movement on which All depended had been splendidly achieved. To him therefore the eyes of All were turned who Hail grievances to redress or who wearied with the divided councils of parliament looked fora termination of the hostilities by which the ratio a was distracted to a bolder and More determined hand. And to him so far As the party was concerned which for Many subsequent years was to Rule the destinies of England might have been applied the words Iii which Sallust Speaks of Cai us Marius at the Tennin Tiou of his history of the Jugurth Ine Yvo Are red temp estate specs at que opes Civ Tatis in Ilia Titre on tile table were several objects of interest illustrative of the lecture which Are alluded to More at length ilk the article on the subject Iii our editorial columns. The president at the conclusion of the lecture said he was sure there was hut one opinion As to the interest of the subject brought la fore them that evening especially from the part taken by our own town Iii the contest to which it related. He hoped the paper would not pass without discussion As that was one of the most pleasant parts of the evening s engagements. Rev. C. Berry Iii rising to move a vote of thanks to or. Hollings for the very interesting paper with which he had favoured the meeting Aud which must have caused him a great Deal of trouble to prepare Suid the subject was doubly interesting to himself As an ancestor of his of the name of Berry fought Iii the Battle of Naseby. The motion was seconded by sir la. Halford and unanimously agreed to. The president said lie wished some one would discuss the subject brought la fore them that evening for although the paper was one of an historical character still there were one or two Points which would admit of discussion. As no one answered the presidents no a Al or. Hollings briefly returned thanks and said he did not expect his up a a would cause much discussion for lie had confined himself simply to historical facts. He had before him several valuable relics of the Battle and was surprised that so few educated persons visited Naseby Field Tor he was sure there was a great Deal to la Learnt from it. He would suggest that a visit be to it by the members of the philosophical society i chiding among them the ladies Leicestershire agricultural society.

The Arctic of Captain Collinson. It is with the most extreme satisfaction that we Call attention to a telegraphic despatch which will be found in another portion of our columns this Day which announces the Safe arrival of the Enterprise with Captain Collinson and his Crew at port Clarence. We presume this place to be the port of that name at the Entrance of Behring a Straits so frequently mentioned in the records of our Arctic navigators. The Enterprise had not discovered any relic of Franklin or of his unfortunate Crew so that we Are still left to the intelligence brought Home by or. Rae. It is Gratifying to hear that in the course of her prolonged absence the Enterprise had lost Bat three men but in truth occupation and exposure in these Northern regions have in get Lieen found prejudicial to the health of seamen excepting of course Iii the Case of an overwhelming calamity such As that which befell the Erebus and terror. It is fortunate that this intelligence has reached England in time for close despatch upon the heels of the messengers who hear directions for organizing a search for the Enterprise by Way of the Mackenzie. Happily every human being Lias been withdrawn from these Arctic solitudes save the members of the United states Grinnell expedition which by the last advices was doing Well at or about the Entrance of Smiths sound. These too can lie no doubt warned that All further exertion on their part is useless and that they had Liest return without Day. Our work amid the is now limited to certain investigations a Lush May throw Light non the manner in which Franklin and his friends came by their end. In other words we Are no longer concerned for the living but Tor the dead. The sooner this painful Enigma is solved one Way or another the better and then we Trust the English nation will bid a Long Farewell to Arctic Tizzie of wednesday. The following is the telegraphic dispatch referred to a a a Liverpool tuesday evening. A a Hee majesty a ship Enterprise Captain Collinson put into port Clarence on the 23rd of August. 8he had met with no traces of sir John Franklin. She had lost three of her Crew. A a the Rattlesnake a at san English Gold and russian bayonets. From the press every one is astonished and indignant at observing the effect of the novel principle of admitting without let or hindrance the produce of our enemy. The facts of the Case Are Patent. Russia finds in England a better Market for her produce than she Ever found before. Her credit is upheld by our payments. Her great landowners enriched by our wealth scoff at the notion of our hostility and finding their Prosperity enhanced by War afford it their cordial support. Her government through the continued imports of our Gold is enabled to keep its it apers notwithstanding enormous fresh issues at Par and thus the War which we imagined would so impair the fortunes of her Nobles and cripple her resources As to compel her to sue for peace Only pours a flood of Prosperity Over the land and raises her credit higher that it has Ever stood Zefore. It is literally British capital that clothes and feeds her troops and supplies her with the very sinews of War. We dwell on these facts As they Are admitted by the ministerial prints Aud As they urgently demand More perhaps than any other single subject the attention of parliament. Is it to lie supposed that had the operation of this order in Council been foreseen it the time when it was promulgated it would have been allowed to pass sub Silenzio by the legislature ? yet the policy is defended while its evil results Are admitted. Commercial reasons Are still pleaded Iii its justification and the question has arrived at that Point when we have to choose Between resistance to the economic projects of the coalition and submission to the will of the emperor Nicholas. It is vain to think of subduing him by wasting the extremities of his Empire while we nourish its heart or while we cling to the ignoble principle that our Trade is More precious Thau our mood and that the lives of oar Brave Fellows by sea and land Are nothing in comparison with hemp and tallow. We can strike at the kit wer of Russia ouly through the material interests of her people. The notion that the Power of Russia can be broken in a single Campaign is at an end. There has been a foolish disposition amongst us to under Ray a her resources Aud especially her Power of resistance. From the commencement of hostilities the ministerial press has Laboured incessantly to disguise the real character of the contest. To keep our people in Good Humour they have been flattered with the idea of rapid and easy Victory. Our boasting credulity and abuse have been curried so far As to make us appear ridiculous in the eyes of Europe. It is not by such Means that we can Hope to conquer our enemy. We must learn to take a Juster measure of his strength Aud of our own and aim not Only at conquering his armies in the Field but at the destruction by every Means at our command of the Industrial Prosperity which continually Renews them and which is the real secret of russians Power and Price. A a a. Hinckley. Money wednesday week As the servant of or. George Marsden Brocklehurst one of the rate collectors of Hinckley Union was walking Down the holy Croft with the children she picked up a purse containing a sum of Money which she delivered into the hands of Lier master on monday the purse was publicly cried by or. John Dan but no owner has yet applied for it. Or. Brocklehurst is quite prepared to return it to the owner ii a proper description is Given and All the expenses paid. The girl also found a Little Loose Silver lying near but this was of Small amount. Cheese fair. A on monday last the 6th inst., the annual cheese fair was held. At two of clock in the afternoon not a single Dairy was pitched. Neither could we make out that any was sold at All. Of cattle there was an equally Short Supply. It would be very desirable if some efforts would be to restore this fair which some years Back was considered of some importance. American following instance of kindness and Courtesy on the part of the mayor of new Orleans is deserving of notice. Some years Back the son of a respectable and worthy couple left this neighbourhood for the Southern states of America. For a length of time nothing was heard of him and eventually it was reported that lie was dead Many enquiries were subsequently hut no authentic information could be obtained. At length it was suggested to address a letter to the chief magistrate of new Orleans Iii which Vicinity the Young Man was last heard of. The letter was accordingly sent and no time was lost by the honourable magistrate in replying to it. The result is that the lost person was seen Iii the City of new Orleans a few Days ago in Good health and is now working in that neighbourhood. The mayors letter left new Orleans on the 17 the of october reached Boston on the 25th, Liverpool on the 5th of november Aud was in the hands of the Young Many a friends on Tho 6th. Friday night the inhabitants of Hinckley were alarmed by the cry of fire when it was discovered that the Chimney of or. Allens House was Iii danger the flames came out at the top and so intense was the heat that the Chimney pot burst with a loud report. Fortunately the wind was not up and plenty of assistance at hand so that it was soon subdued otherwise it might have proved disastrous As the promises Are situated Iii the very Centre of the town and might have caused a considerable amount of damage. The fifth of Xoy Ember. A on monday last the juvenile portion of the inhabitants celebrated the anniversary of Gunpowder plot but everything went off quietly and without injury to either person or property there was less pistol firing than on any former year and the principal enjoyment appeared to be in Tjie Domestic preparation of Lemon Toffy. Unwholesome monday last a Quantity of putrid fish weighing about 2 cd ts., was seized by the clerk of the Market assisted by two officers of the Manor court messes. Wilson and Smith. A complaint having been to the mayor or. S. Spencer that gentleman at once condemned and ordered it to be destroyed. Facts for Teeto tales. A recently at Hinckley a malt Kiln on the Burbage Road was converted into tenements at the present time another near to the Mills is being similarly dealt with two others Iii Boud Street and Wood Street Are unoccupied. Who after this will not say that Hinckley ought to be regarded with favour by those who support the principles of total abstinence. the past week the inhabitants of this place adopted a novel plan of keeping Down the prices of bread and flour by sending round the crier who gave notice that Auy attempt to raise the prices of these necessary commodities would be immediately resisted.

Ecclesiastical and University intelligence. The Bishop of London on the following observations on this subject occur in his lordships recent charge a a a More especially i object to All those unusual gestures and Genus lesions which imply or Are thought by Many to imply an of adoration to the Corporal presence of our lord in the eucharistic Clements a notion which our Church most explicitly condemns and which however mollified and veiled by metaphysical subtleties i hold to be wholly inconsistent with her articles Anil Liturgy. The body and blood of Christ Are received in a purely spiritual sense and even in that sense by the faithful communicants ouly. I earnestly exhort my younger Brethren to receive Anil interpret the 28th and 29th articles in the Plain literal sense of the words in which they Are couched Anil not to Sutler themselves to be perplexed Aud misled by the mystical and to me unintelligible refinements by a Inch it has been attempted of late to make the language of our Church mean something not Only different from but directly opposed to the truth which it was intended to assert. I am thoroughly persuaded that to embrace the notion of any Corporal presence of our lord in the eucharist is virtually to embrace the doctrine of transubstantiation and when that is once received a door is opened for the easy admission of All the errors and superstitions of the Church of Rome which our reformed Church has renounced and we rejoice that the Bishop has at this important crisis Given expression to such sound protestant sentiments. Archdeacon Wilberforce. A in accordance with general expectation Archdeacon Wilberforce has formally seceded from Tho Church of England and joined that of Rome. The following Iii allusion to this subject from the morning Herald will be read with interest a the secession of the Archdeacon of the East Riding could Surprise no one who had read his recent volume. After the publication of that work his continuance in the Church of England for a single hour was indefensible. Such a delusion As that which sees a a a successor of St. Peter a in the Bishop of Rome is utterly inconsistent with the sober common sense of our reformed Church. Several errors having crept into the daily journals with reference to the Archdeacon s family connections we shall briefly state what Ive believe to be the truth. William Wilberforce had four not three sons. But those four sons were not All intended for the ministry. The eldest was we believe called to the bar and was elected 1837 or 1841, to represent the Borough of Hull but lost his seat on petition. He was married to Mary the second daughter of the late Rev. John Owen. This lady joined the Romish Church about three or four years since. The other three sons were All educated at Oxford and by their Brilliant Success there were naturally led to accept fellowships and to go into the churl. We rather think that the late Archdeacon was the second son the Bishop of Oxford the third and or. Ii. W. Wilberforce the fourth. The Bishop of Oxford was a Favourite with the late Rev. Diaries Simeon and afterwards with Tho Bishop of Winchester. At the Isle of Wight he was led into personal communication with the court and his talents and fascinating manners soon established him in the Royal favour. The opposition which he to Bishop Hampden a appointment to the see of Hereford seems to have ended his popularity in that Quarter. The late Archdeacon of the East Riding is probably the most Able and Learned member of the family. He will unquestionably do far less harm like or. Newman out of the Church than he has been doing for the last three years in it. The morning Post announces the following preferment and appointments a rec tories. The Hon. And Rev.

The Rev. F. Maurice late of Kings College delivered an inaugural address on the subject at St. Martins Hall the previous evening to an audience composed in great part of working men. The object of the promoters of the College appears to to to provide a regular course of studies on topics of a scientific historical and social nature calculated to elevate the taste and enlighten the minds of the working classes each subject to be illustrated by lectures or lessons delivered on successive evenings by a number of gentlemen who Liao constituted themselves a a a Council of or.

A newly married Man in a dilemma. A sin amusing incident occurred at Liverpool on saturday to a newly married couple for whom berths had Lieen taken on blast the steam ship America for Boston. The husband arrived on Friday from Edinburgh with the View of securing berths. The Bride had been left in the care of her friends and was to lie accompanied hither by her brother in time to reach the Steamer. Whether for the Sake of Economy or As has been urged for the purpose of enjoying the a a Weed a cannot be correctly surmised but the brother obtained a first class ticket per rail for his sister while he was Content to ride in a second class Carriage. They came by a night train and the brother very considerately As they stopped at the various stations visited his sister to see if she was a a All these visits appear to have become less frequent As the train approached the station where some of the carriages take to Weir departure for London Anil some for Liverpool a. On arriving Here his first anxiety was to look after Ilia sister hut nowhere was she to by found. She had been taken to London by the up train. The Pirp living thought occurred to him Bluit in a few hours More the Steamer and probably the husband would leave the port. After a Long search by the Agency of electricity the missing lady was ascertained to lie at one of Tho stations on the Road to London. She arrived at the Landing stage in liver of in time to see Tim America take her departure. The Jackall tender however came alongside from the Steamer shortly after delivering the mails with the poor bewildered husband on Ixia re. The meeting Between Man and wife can better lie imagined than portrayed. Fortunately one of the principals of the mail boat was on the stage at the time Ami hearing the circumstance ordered the tender to follow the America to see if it was possible the parties could be put Oil Board. After a run of several Miles Aud trying All sorts of manoeuvres by striking the Flag ae., the Steamer was reached to the great merriment of Tho passengers on Board who thought that tile tender was conveying news of the taking of Mercury. Grand representation of the Battle of tub glory of the Battle of the Alma for the first time Iii history Embla zoning Tho same Triumph Oil the flags of England and France has been the subject of a grand military spectacle and is now attracting crowded houses at Astley a Royal amphitheatre. Monday evening was the first night of its production on which occasion the proceeds amounting to upwards of �60., were handed Over 1-y the spirited Lessee Vav. Cook Esq., to the fund i for the Relief of the sick Anil wounded at Scutari. The piece itself is an extraordinary Protection. It is the Cornix is turn of .1. Ii. St Queler Esq., Aud is deserving of great Praise. Die Maimer in which it is produced surpasses description. The ring Aud stage Are thrown into one for the occasion by an immense platform covering a space of nearly 700 feet rendering the spectacle doubly attractive its effects. On the Rise of the curtain we Are presented la a rather pathetic scene soldiers with leave taking friends bidding Farewell of each other previous to their Emba cution for the scat of War. Then we Are introduced to the Palace of Prince Menshi Koffy in the course of which some very amusing incidents take Pilace. The Princess Menshikoff is another Cassandra uttering unheeded denunciations of russian cruelty and equally unheeded Vatican actions of Allied Success. The next scene opens at Gallipoli where the Junction of the French English and turkish forces takes place and several Well known fraternizing incidents Are re produced with great effect. A simple hut Graceful Ballet is very happily introduced in which the Union of the Tricolour the Union Jack and the Crescent is typified. The first terminates with the departure of the Allied forces for the Crimea including marching and counter in arching of innumerable troops of the cavalry British guards infantry with the intrepid highlanders 23rd and 95th, French zouave and Chasseur with powerful bodies of horse and foot artillery endless baggage and ammunition waggons and All the concomitants of a regular Campaign which with the magnificent effect produced by the grand performance of the military band produce a perfect furore of patriotic cheers and enthusiastic applause from the audience. Finally the Battle takes Pilace. Here the preparation of the management have a most Brilliant effect. The Heights of Alma Are at the Back of the stage surmounted Lay Tho russians. The Allied forces proceed through a Circle and ascend the platform till the cossacks make a sail Down into the ring when two conflicts take place one on the stage and the other below so that the whole theatre becomes a Field of Battle and is in itself a Triumph of Scenic management. Nothing Tan sure in it the tumultuous i Igor with which the russians and the allies cuter Bito the engagement the theatre resounding with a terrific cannonade whilst the Stag. Shakes with the tramp of the deftly trained chargers and tile slips Shine with the Glare of Victory nor is any tableau More Brilliant than that which indicates tile moment of Victory Aud the planting of the French and English flags upon tile Heights which overhang the River. As a military spectacle it is . Tile numerous incident Are cleverly introduced a i Quot my Well delineated. Even the press is not forgotten a Tor we to nil a your own correspondent partaking of a soldiers hardship in time of Battle Iii which lie shows himself to be Gallant As Well As observant lit is seen rescuing two interesting females who have fallen into the hands of a part of cossacks by shooting out and defeating the other with an old umbrella i from the Rise of the curtain to the end of the piece there is a perfect glow of enthusiasm and every line that could lie interpreted into a a Triode sentiment met with a deafening round of applause. The mimic conflicts of the Battle Are ardently regarded As the symbols of the Eulily in the Crimea and elsewhere. The audience throughout Are kept in a state of great excitement which is considerably heightened towards the close. The indefatigable Lessee has spared no pains or expense in platting it Forth and we predict for it a Long and continuous run. We cannot close our remarks on this magnificent and exciting piece without recommending our readers who May be visiting the Metropolis during the present season Hipa a visit to Astley Sas we Are confident that tile stirring incidents which Art there shown in the representation of the Battle of the Alma will form abundant materials for conversation and give a zest to the Domestic Hearth luring Tho approaching Winter evenings a Surrey Herald
