The curiosity which has so Long existed with regard to tile Fate of sir John Franklin and his ill starred Compaq ions Iii adventure has at length been most fearfully satisfied. We Are no longer left to conjecture nor to the vague inferences deduced from the momentary passage of phantom ships. The very bodies of our Gallant and Munfor innate countrymen have been discovered hut in a condition which can leave no doubt that the worst surmises which had Lieen hazarded with regard to their bite have been exceeded by the full horror of the calamity. We know now that a party from the Erebus and terror perished by starvation the most terrible form of death the information received though concise is perfectly dear and conclusive. Let a. Rac whose name has been so celebrated Iii the annals of Arctic travel arrived Iii England on sunday last and was the bearer of the terrible news. This gentleman was engaged in the Survey of the Western coast of Boothia when lie obtained intelligence from the Esqui Maux that in the Spring of 1850 a Narty of weary and Way worn White men had been seen struggling with tile difficulties of the Aud making for the nor Thorn coast of America. Relies were found in the tosses Sion of the Esqui Maux which left no doubt that the persons of whom they spoke were in fact the survivors of Franklin a expedition. They made their Way to the Shore of the continent Aud it was at this Point their strength gave Way a Short distance to the Westward of that great River which sir George Back traced Down to its Confluence with the sea. A Little later in the season but before the broke up the Esqui Maux came to the spot and discovered the sad relics of so much courage and endurance thirty bodies were lying on the Shore of the continent and five on a Little Island near. Hic first who perished had been buried by the piety of their companions but alas too soon strength failed or despair took Possession of every breast. In that inhospitable Region at the time Uliey reached it no food was to be found. They had plenty of ammunition but there was no game wherever they turned their eyes nothing was to be seen but and a dreary desert. Hie character of the Region at which they had arrived could be no secret to sir John Franklin or to his off teens supposing that he had himself perished before the party reached the spot. It is Clear they had compasses with them they knew the position of backs i River and where they were. Sir John and All his officers must have been a perfectly Well acquainted with Back adventures. Somewhat further to the East Lay the scene of Franklin a own sufferings and exploits in former years. We should be inclined to sup Iose from the direction taken by the a party that Franklin did not Irish when the ships received tile injury which caused their destruction. The Lead to his own old course was a natural one on his part his subordinates in All probability would have been More inclined to retrace their Steps than to mss to regions utterly unknown to them save by the gloomy traditions of the starving ground we dare not Trust ourselves to dwell upon the horrors which Olis cured the dying hours of so Many Noble lie arted men. There is no agony bodily or mental which they must not have endured in their prison before they Sank to to Weir last Long rest. All bom or to their memory Ould to Girt it bad Len in the Power of to Weir countrymen to extricate them from their awful situation but surely we May in fairness say that we did All we could for to Weir Relief. It would seem not unreasonable to suggest now that we have ascertained the exact District in which the disaster occurred that it should be carefully searched by some proper person Why not or. Rae himself a with every menus at his disposal for the further elucidation of the mystery. We have had Quito enough of great Arctic expeditions since sir Edward furry first voyage in 1816-20, with the single exception of Captain my Ciurek a they have invariably resulted in disappointment and disaster. It is dear however the Graves of our unfortunate countrymen should he visited. Tile Esqui Maux spoke of books and vipers and if such articles were in to Weir Possession it is More thai probable that some record May even yet be discovered which May throw full Light upon t he whole transaction. It is even possible that some relics of the vessels May he found for the recent intelligence would seem to discredit the hypothesis that wig Gestone a Hospital. The usual weekly meeting of the town committee was held at the Wycliffe rooms on thursday evening the 19th inst. Present a. F. Boiling Esq. Chairman messes. Hawker winks Chamberlain Burley Foster Cox Hardy scamp ton Hull James Thompson Aud Burford. Tile minutes of Tho last meeting having been read the committee proceeded with their consideration of the Relatores scheme. Clause 37, of that scheme which involves the qualifications of the inmates of the Hospital was next in rotation to the clauses previously considered Bot was postponed in the first instance in the Hope that a larger attendance of member Init let be secured before the meeting broke up. Clause 38 was passed with some verbal amendments rendered necessary by previous alterations. Clause 38, a that the stipends or allowances to All the alms people shall be 8s. Per week each and such stipends shall be paid weekly a wag adopted with the additional Resolution that the trustees should have discretionary Power to find them Coal firewood lighting and clothing. Clause 48 of the corporation scheme was next taken giving the trustees Power to select keepers or nurses from the inmates and allow them 2s, per week each additional. Bonuses 49, Ftp my 41, tin cosy Marina a betas Ess powering the trustees to provide is Mas comforts a for the inmates a to decently inter any inmate who died and providing that the inmates Nuder John Watson a will commonly called a the corporation woman a should be included amongst the inmates. Clauses 40, 41, and 42, of the Relatores scheme were then adopted. Tile next Danse by which it was provided that the inmates should evict sunday attend divine service elicited considerable discussion. Or. Winks thought that persons who were not members of the Church of England would not object to attend divine service in the Chapel of the Hospital once a Day provided to were at Liberty to attend their own places of worship at such times As would not interfere with the order of the House. Or. Chamberlain wished to move that attendance on the services of the Chapel attached to tile Hospital should be compulsory on members of the Church of England hut that All other persons should be at Liberty to go where they pleased. Several members of the committee concurred with or. Chamberlain. Or. Winks said Strong dissenter Asho was he Woald not himself object to attend the Church services once a Day for the Sake of order. Or. J. Foster thought dissenters should be at Liberty to attend their own places of worship but that due Security should be taken that they did so certificates being required from the minister or recognized office bearer of the Chapel of their regular attendance. Or. W. Hardy expressed a general concurrence in this Guestion. Or. Scampton said the Hospital would probably be built some Miles from Leicester which would Render it impossible for the dissenting inmates to attend their own places of worship. Be w shed therefore to have a dissenting minister appointed at a salary not exceeding that paid to the conf Rater who should perform divine service for the Benefit of such inmates us were not members of the Church of bog land. Or. Wines objected entirely to or. Scampton a proposition. William a Eggeston was a member of the then National Church at the time he founded the Hospital if lie had lived a Hundred years later he thought he would have founded it on the principles of the Church of England. With regard to appointing dissenting ministers whom would they appoint f what a difficulty they would have there were independents baptists and methodists besides branches from these How could they possibly manage with them ail p he thought there would be a great difficulty in appointing atty minister but one of the established Church Sud Strong dissenter As he was he would do this to avoid tile possibility of any collision in the matter. If they restricted the term dissenters to evangelical dissenters How would they Deal with or. Berry a people ? there would be a grumbling As there was about the services at the workhouse. He preferred an open Resolution like that of or. Chamberlain to or. Campton inquisition. Tile chairman considered or. Winks had been laying tile axe at the Root of non conformity if they carried out his principle for the Sake of order there would be an end of dissent altogether. There was a More important element than order in All worship and compulsory worship was tantamount to no worship at All. Or. J. Thompson expressed his perfect concurrence in tin views of tile chairman. He objected to compulsory attendance at either Church or Chimiel. He should wish a place of worship to be erected Iii or near the Hospital building and also that the conf Rater should there perform divine service but attendance should not be made compulsory. This was not in accordance with right principles in the Case of disobedience they would have to impose fines As a punishment that was to Fine people for doing what was agreeable to their own consciences Aud he thought no one would agree to that. Or. Scampton a plan lie thought impracticable As it would he Imp possible to appoint a minister for every denomination which upon his principle they would have to do. The office of master he observed had hitherto been held by Patent no form of subscription being required so that under the present system a dissenter might he appointed. In proof of this he instanced chilling Ortii who refused subscription and Jackson in the reign of George la ail avowed unitarian who occasionally occupied the pulpit in opposition to tile vicar of St. Martins. Ile did not say this because he had any desire that a dissenter should be appointed he should vote for the appointment of a Clergyman of the Church of England As most Likely to promote the order of the institution and give Public satisfaction. He supported or. Chamberlain s motion. Or. Chamberlain then proposed the following Resolution a that a Chapel be erected As a part of the Hospital with a suitable residence for the conf Rater who shall be required to per Orin divine service in tile Chapel on sunday and the usual Days and who shall by the discretion and under the control of tile trustees regulate the internal affairs of the Hospital Blat no inmate shall he required to Uttend those services other than members of tile Church of England and that other religious minister shall have free Access to the Hospital to in quart religious instruction to inmates of to Weir own after a few words from or. Scampton and or. Chamberlain or. Hardy said he thought or. Scampton Mast perceive that his motion was impracticable. The great fundamental principles of christianity were he hoped held by churchmen and dissenters alike and he hoped whoever might he appointed conf Rater he would never make a Point of enforcing upon such persons As the inmates of that institution the Peculiar doctrines of his own Church which they would lie Little disposed to entertain but would rather confine himself to tile fundamental principles of the Christian religion. Or. Scampton a motion for the appointment of a dissenting minister As chaplain to the Hospital found no Seconder Aud consequently fell to the ground. Or. 8. Expressed himself satisfied with having stated his views. Ile now begged to second or. Chamberlain s motion which on being int was carried unanimously. The committee after passing one or two formal clauses returned to clause 37, when some discussion took place As to whether that part of the clause which required inmates to have rates or their husbands or fathers for five years should be retained yid whether admission to the Hospital should lie open to the inhabitants of those places where the property of the Charity was situated. Ultimately it was resolved to adopt the broader principle in both eases giving a preference to those who had not stately received Relief and to those who lived in Leicester. Some conversation Gensoul res acting the provisions for schools in connection with the Hospital but no Resolution was come to on the subject. The committee then adjourned till monday evening a letter having been read from or. Hucknall intimating that it was necessary they should proceed with All possible Baste in the examination of the remaining clauses of the Reuters scheme. Patriotic fund. A meeting at the town Hall.

We have received the of Tolick bundle of tills periodical which is Nuder the superintendence of the National Shipwreck institution. We Are informed that it is the intention of government to establish life boats on the coast through the medium of the association for which however tile contributions of the benevolent arc solicited.

Hungary it seems Lias a literature of its own imbued wit i its nationality and deeply instinct with True and genuine patriotism. It is we need not say almost entirely unknown Iii England we might say Western furn in generally and in Reading the a a sketches a con tamed Iii this Iszik we seem transported into a new world in English and Treuch fictions however excellent there a sameness unavoidable because they relate to matters of every Day exit Prience but the tales of Moritz Jokai Are almost As twitching us scenes of fairyland. We have in these pages a series of Light and elegant sketches evidently for the most part if not the whole taken from life and by no Means highly coloured. We seem to be moving and living alternately among the Magyar peasantry and tile old fashioned High spirited nobility of that unhappy coun try and we at least cannot avoid seeing in these photographs As we May Call them of hungarian life evidences of a vitality yet a subdued which though now slumbering will yet raise the Community in whose hearts it subsists to a position among the nations of Europe. Some of the Moat pleasing and deeply interesting pieces relate to incidents Iii the revolutionary War in 1848-9. We have delayed noticing the publication in Hopes of being Able to accompany the notice with an extract. This is a treat however for which we must ask our readers to wait until our columns shall be less crowded than at present is the the two phantom ships seen by the renovation had in j Case.

Rice of the War in Verne sent w Ould live failed in doing jigs to to the National Faith and Bonnor if they had not engaged in it. There was but one opinion among All Clu saes of society upon the subject. He should Call upon the town clerk to read the communications received from different parties and he anticipated a Universal concurrence in tile object for which they were assembled. He thought had parliament been in session at this time it would have been its duty to support Hie government in levying upon the consolidated fund to any extent for this object Bat As parliament was not sitting it was a matter of Good taste on the part of the Queen and government to Appeal to the patriotism of the people to do that which would otherwise have devolved upon parliament. The town clerk then read the communication from the Royal commissioners to the mayor directing him to take Steps for the collection of funds for the object and several letters received by the mayor from parties not present at tile meeting. The first was from or. Ingram enclosing a donation of �2. Tile second was from or. Stallard expressing ins concurrence in the object of the meeting and offering to canvass the District of the Newark for subscriptions should a House to House system of visitation be resolved upon. A communication was read from the pupils of Peatling Hall school enclosing a donation of �2. 10s., the announcement of which was received with cheers. This was followed Liy a note from the right Hon. Earl Howe enclosing a Cheque for �100. The Rev. J. Wing Rose to move the first Resolution. He had not expected when he came into that room which he did out of sympathy with the objects of the meeting that he should be called upon to address it and therefore they would excuse his making Many observations. But he could not refrain from saying that there was but one opinion As to the Justice of Tho War that it was undertaken against the most unprincipled violence that wag Ever perpetrated and much As they admired the bravery the unrivalled bravery hear of our troops at the Battle of the Alma they must Only look upon that As the precursor of a greater and More influential Victory. Their sympathy with the widows and or Plitman of Biose Olio fell in that Battle and might yet fall in future putties ought to be equal to their admiration of their husbands and fathers. Cheers with these observations he would read the Resolution. Or. Hudson seconded the Resolution which was carried unanimously. Or. R. Harris moved the second Resolution. Or. W. K. Kames seconded the Resolution which was carried. The Rev. J. Dixon moved the third Resolution. The motion was seconded by or. Scott and carried. Or. Los by said a Resolution had been put into his hand which he moved with great pleasure. They had just appointed a local committee and one of the most important things they had to do was to appoint an efficient honorary Secretary. There could be no difference of opinion respecting the gentleman he was about to propose Samuel Stone Esq., tile town clerk. He then proceeded to remark that he thought the lower Racks of society should be solicited for subscriptions. Many would give their shillings and half crowns and lie should like to see a million sixpence a million shillings and a million half crowns. Hear that might have some effect upon the emperor who had caused them All this trouble. He reasoned upon what took place in other countries and if he found this fund so largely contributed to by the nation and that Hie Public supported the government in the War and that the government would he supported to the end with Rigour it might possibly have some influence upon him. At All events the object of their subscription was one to which they would All most cheerfully respond. He was quite sure there would be a Liberal subscription go Forth from Leicester and Lier majesty having thought proper to put this matter before the Public it would be most heartily up Porto. The Resolution he had to move was or. S. Vic cars seconded the Resolution. Or. Stone expressed his reluctance to undertake the duty if any other gentleman would Volunteer to accept it on account of his numerous engagements but if none else would come Forward he would undertake the office and give to it As much time As he could. -1 tie chairman then put the motion in which lie expressed his perfect concurrence and it was carried unanimously. Or. Hollings Rose to move the concluding Resolution. He should make the usual preface of wishing it had fallen into Abler hands and they would see that he had Good reason to do so. The speaker having read tile Resolution observed that it embraced propositions far More important than were involved in tile immediate object for Winch they were assembled. As to anything like Eulogy upon the conduct of the Allied armies on the Heights of Alma he should not pattern it it on the present occasion. They were perfectly aware of the difficulties that had to be overcome and How they were surmounted and How upon the 22nd of september the British Soldier showed to the world that he possessed the same qualities which distinguished his ancestors a Century ago at Dettinger and Fauntleroy and in times Long before. He thought this Opportunity should not be lost of conveying to the world their sense of the bravery of their French allies. It was a Happy Omen that those standards which had never since the Days of Cromwell been seen but in opposition were now waving Side by Side and he hoped before Long they would hear that Uliey were thus floating on the towers of Sebastopol. Cheers he could not entertain the Hope expressed by tile latter portion of the Resolution of a speedy conclusion of Lenic he feared they were on the threshold of a Long War. Looking at the complicated state of affairs he could not indulge that Hope he wished lie could do go. But he did most cordially concur in the wish and prayer of the Resolution that the peace to be concluded might be one tending to secure the Freedom and happiness of the civilized world. He did not to Liutik those who had the management of the War were aware of the interest taken in it by the Public of this country who wished it to end not in the Independence of Turkey Only but in that of All the enthralled nations of Europe. There was not a Man there who was not a Friend to constitutional government and would not wish to see the blessings of constitutional government communicated to every country in Europe. He hoped therefore that when a peace was concluded it would be such a one As would secure this object. With respect to a curtailment of russian domination he observed it was not to be tolerated not to be endured that one Man should be allowed to break from time to time the peace of the world and to inflict upon it All the calamities of War without la ing made to pay an adequate penalty at its conclusion. He trusted the peace which should lie concluded by her majesty a government would lie a secure one and one that would secure constitutional government for every state in Europe. After a few words denouncing Alliance with despotic Powers the speaker proceeded he thought no object More imperatively demanding their sympathy had been before the Public for Many years. He should be sorry if this subscription should be considered As alms it should not be regarded in an eleemosynary Point of View. He should like to see a Large portion of the National funds set apart for the purpose hot though this could not now lie done the Man Olio offered his life a sacrifice for his country ought to lie certain that he should not leave his widow and children in Beggary. The Rev. E. T. Vaughan seconded the Resolution. Al lading to the smallness of the attendance lie remarked it seemed a symptom of the change which had come Over the world that they had now to look for Public speeches Ami Charity sermons in tile columns of the newspapers from being a hearing they had become a Reading world. He cordially re echoed every sentiment expressed in the Resolution. With regard to the prayer of the last portion of the Resolution or. Hollings had expressed a doubt whether it was one they could offer with a reasonable Hope of its being granted. He thought it was not for them to assign what it might please owl to Grant they ought All to desire a speedy peace provided it were not a Mere hollow truce but one that would secure the future Progress and improvement of the human race. They should be contented with nothing Short of this. When they should have this they must leave to god but at present they did right to press Forward tile struggle in every possible Way. Side by Side with the greatest nation of Europe. With regard to alliances with despotic Powers he thought Powers might derive Benefit from tile Alliance As Well As the Power with which we were at War. The Rev. Gentleman proceeded to remark that he thought the present War had been the Means of bringing out some great qualities. He did not speak of courage for that never was wanting in the British army and never would be but there was something much More than Mere courage. When they read the accounts of the Battle of the Alma the letters not of the officers Only but of the privates and non commissioned officers when they noticed the calmness with which they risked their lives and when they found such tender affections Felt and expressed on the very Field of blood itself when they saw the patient endurance of sick Ness of privation of hardships of every kind without murmur when they saw the Noble self devoted Ness of those who were ready to throw themselves abroad at the first Call of duty they could not but say that the War had been of great Good to Vliem. Uliey showed that the nation which bad been called a nation of shopkeepers and which was supposed to hold no object so important As Money was ready to sacrifice advantages of that kind at the Call of duty and that having once drawn the sword however reluctantly would not Sheath it again till the time arrived when it ought to be sheathed or. Noble in supporting the Resolution remarked upon the barbarism of the russians As shown especially by an incident Winch Lias appeared in the Public papers of a russian Soldier murdering an English officer who had Given him refreshment when in an almost dying state. To re marked also that he had lately had an Opportunity of forming Tome opinion upon the feelings of Germany in regard to the War and was convinced however the governments might feel the sympathies of the people were with England and France. Or. T. Marshall Rose to move that the resolutions of the meeting be advertised in the Leicester papers. He enquired of the town clerk if the present was to be regarded As a meeting for the county As Well As for the Borough to which or. Stone replied that the High sheriff of the county was an sex offi Cio commissioner for the fund whether he would Convene a Public meeting he did not know but in the meantime he or. Stone would be Happy to receive subscriptions from any gentlemen connected with the county. Or. W. Hardy had great pleasure in seconding the Resolution. Her majesty having appointed the mayors of Boron Glis local commission re to receive subscriptions both town Aud county should rally round them. He would Only express his Hope that the subscription might be worthy of the occasion. He could not resume his seat without expressing his fervent Hope that whenever the time for peace did arrive ample compensation would be demanded for the past and ample Security for the future. The necessity for patting a Stop to the encroachments of Russia could not he shown More than by the instance Given by or. Noble. It showed such a Low state of degradation such a deadness to All human feeling that the necessity for checking a Power which so educated its subject was too palpable to require a Ward of argument. He concluded by expressing his Hope that they who had read with such interest the accounts from the seat of War and traced on the their movements and had been so anxious for the army to do their duty now that they had done so would show themselves willing to do their duty. The town clerk Here announced that he was authorized by the mayor to put Down his name for a subscription of 20 guineas and that lie had received a communication from or. Gardner m.f., expressing his concurrence in the object of the meeting. The Rev. E. T. Vaughan moved and or. T. Johnson seconded a vote of thanks to the chairman which having been briefly acknowledged the proceedings terminated. Tim resolutions will be found in our advertising columns literary and philosoh1cal society. Laying the foundation Stone of the Loughborough town Hall and Corn Exchange. Right hand a supporter. The first meeting for the session of 1854-55, was held on monday evening in the lecture room of the town museum. File chair was taken by the president w. Napier Reeve Esq., who was supported by j. F. Hollings Esq., messes. Marshall Galliard Paget or. Shaw w. Biggs Esq., ., Aud the Rev. C. Berry ac., Sec. The Secretary or. Haines read a list of donations to the museum since tile close of last session. On the motion of or. Hollings seconded by or. Paget a vote of thanks was passed to the donors. The following new members were proposed by or. Hollings a or. Selss or. J. Whitmore or. J. B. Haxby or. Harry j. Davis or. R. Crawford or. W. J. Williams and or. Winterton the ballot to take place at the next meeting. Or. Macaulay presented an original letter of Dean Swift to a Clergyman at Thornton bearing Date of 1691, which he read to Tho Assembly. Or. Hollings in moving a vote of thanks to or. Macaulay said he was sure anything from the Ion of Swift would be highly valuable to this society. The letter faithfully Imre out the character Given of that great Man. Rev. C. Berry having seconded the vote of thanks it was put to the meeting and carried. The president announced that he had to propose the name of an honorary member of the institution or. Rae who Lead just discovered the Fate of sir John Franklin. The president then proceeded to deliver Bis inaugural address. It was our intention to give a summary of the address but As will be seen by our advertising columns it is about to be published at the request of tile society Aud we therefore of course abstain from doing so or. Hollings in rising to propose a vote thanks to tile president for the very eloquent discourse he had favoured them with said the taper Uliey had just heard read was a Good Omen of what might lie expected from the president while he was in office. With respect to the paper there was a great Deal to Admire and Little to discuss. With what the president had said concerning the society he quite agreed. He knew there were Many men of Talent in Leicester to whom they Woald present themselves As learners. He should like to see these gentlemen become members of Tho society. He was sure there had been no bar to their admission. He hoped to see a Little fresh blood put into the society by Young Leicester Many of whom were sitting before Bim and were Able to come Forward on behalf of it. Though they had a Good museum for the time it Lead been established still it was very inferior to she museums of some other towns of half the Mao. Many objects of antique interest in Hie town which might have had prominence in the museum had been suffered to perish. He concluded by moving a vote of thanks to the president. Or. Marshall in seconding the vote of thanks said he quite agreed with or. Hollings that though the museum had made a great Deal of Progress still it was inferior to those which were established in some other towns. He had heard from or. Plant that very Day who had a son curator of the Salford museum that no less than �11,000. Had Lieen expended on it. Now All that Leicester had expended or its museum was �1,200., while it ought in proportion to Salford with a population of 90,000, to have Laid out �7,000. Ile said this to show that there was plenty of room for improvement in Leicester. Or. Shaw said he should not have risen Lead not his own name been brought Forward in the presidents address. It was most Gratifying to him to look Hack at the contrast Between the society As it now was and when it was first established. He Lead the honour of being president in 1835, and Iii his address he prognosticate great improvements which he now found Hod been fulfilled. The m use uni owed its origin to or. Lawrence Aud or. Drake. At the commencement of the society there were some few lectures Given which were very talented although the audiences were thin and Many times Lead they thought that the society was at an end. He was very sorry to see that there had been so great a falling off in the clerical members of the society. He could not account for it he was sure nothing had occurred in their meetings which ought to keep those reverend gentlemen away. He could Bear or. Marshall out with respect to Salford for he was Ell acquainted with the place. Twenty years ago it had no museum no dispensary no town Hall nor Public buildings of any kind. They had now not Only a splendid town Hall and museum hut other buildings of the first class. He was sore Salford was a Good example for them to go by even though they should not lie Able to come out on so Large a scale. Or. W. Biggs suggested that the excellent paper which they had heard that evening should be printed. He thought it would be the Means of stimulating increased exertions among the rising generation in our town. It would be a pleasing and faithful record of the origin of the society and its Progress Down to the present time not Only showing what had been done hut Liat might he done. He should therefore move that it be printed. M. Galliard begged to second the motion. Or. Berry said he concurred in All that had been said concerning the presidents paper. Or. Reeve had been one of the earliest members of the society and had Given very accurate account of its origin and its history Don n to the present time. He admired the paper extremely but he did not agree with or. Riggs that it should be printed without first consulting the committee lie hoped it would stimulate the younger members to exert themselves on behalf of the society. They had lost three senior members messes. Macaulay Gardiner and Harris All of whom had striven hard to promote the interests of the society. There was not a More convenient time for the Young men of Leicester to come Forward. Or. W. Biggs said it would Behest to put the proposition to the meeting As to whether the address should be printed or not. Or. Marshall said this could not be done As it was contrary to the rules of the society. Ile As a member of the Council should protest against the paper being print of on the recommendation of the audience alone. The print ing of 200 copies would to attended with Groat expense be would go for it being printed if the society could Well spare the Money. He also thought they would not be acting properly in printing the paper without they con turned to do so with future tapers. It had not he believed been usual to do so previous to this time. Or. Shaw said when he gave his inaugural address to the society it was printed likewise or. Irvine a and or Smiths. He thought if the society was Able to pay for it then they surely could now. Or. A. Paget said he did not wish in any Way to prevent the address being printed but he was sure that this objection would receive very Good consideration from the Council. Tile matter would then lie Well discussed. It was discussed in the Council it ought not to be clogged with the Resolution of the meeting. Ile was sure if the Council found they had funds sufficient to do it they would willingly comply with or. Biggss request. The president said lie should have risen before Only he thought As the society allowed free discussion Atter paper it would not be acting properly to interfere. He wished or. Biggs not to put his Resolution to the meeting. Or. Berry said lie so much admired the paper that at the next Council meeting he should think it an honour to vote for it being printed. Or. J. Biggs said if the Council would not do it lie should be most Happy to give �5. Towards having it printed. Or. In. Biggs said he would withdraw his Resolution. After what had occurred lie was sure the society would have it printed. He would now move that the Resolution be left in the hands of the committee. The president said he was exceedingly obliged for the interest that had been taken in his paper but did not agree with or. Marshall that his prognostications were so great that nobody would live to see them fulfilled. Now if the people of Leicester would Only contribute a Farthing per week each for n year All that he had prognosticate would lie done. He must vindicate Bis own town from what or. Marshall bad said As to it Only laying out �1000., while Salford had spent �11,000. He was prepared to prove that Leicester had spent nearly �7000. The last five years on its museum. He knew better than that that none of them present would live to see the improvements he had spoken of for. He was sure they would come and that very speedily. The president sat Down amidst loud applause. The next lecture was announced for the 6th of december by or. Hollings on a a Naseby the peer and the press.

Rick Worth three cheers were Given for the ladies As they retired. The majority of the company however remained together several hours longer and spent them in a most agreeable manner. We ought not to omit stating Itiat the baud was stationed in a Ante room during the afternoon amt performed several pieces of music in a creditable Maimer. There is another incident which ought not to he omitted namely that the Silversmith by whom the trowel was made Anil the engraver by whom it was engraved both of them residing Iii Londo Nare Lith connected by relationship with Loughborough and we Are assured that the architect was not aware of this singular coincidence at the time the respective parties were engaged. We Heve been favoured with the following description of the building a the site which is extremely irregular in shape presented Many difficulties which by a skilful arrangement of the parts have been successfully overcome and the plan As now arranged consists of a Large room to tile right of the Entrance where tile magistrates will preside for the administration of Justice with a private room for the use of the members of the Bench in the rear whilst to the left of the Entrance Are disposed a room for a Public Library and Reading room with offices for a librarian and the Porter or the keeper of till1 establishment. This much forms tile ground Fluor of the building facing the Street. Over them Are the Assembly rooms with ample refreshment rooms and other accommodation. Tho Assembly room is remarkable for its Large size and stately proportions. The dimensions Are 70 feet by 40, and 25 feet High. It is thus larger than the Hall room at Leicester Anil is not much inferior to the Well known Hall room at Almack a. Having proceeded so far Iii our description of the general arrangement it May he As Well on our Way to the Corn Exchange which is placed in the rear of these apartments to consider the appearance which these rooms will present when finished beginning with the Assembly room in which we now find ourselves. This splendid apartment lighted by seven windows towards the Street and by Cones onding windows on the opposite Side is entered at one end by a door with becoming architectural appendages. The windows Are All arched and in Harmony with this form the ceiling is a a cover a i.e., arched on All sides with a Fiat space Iii the Centre relieved by mouldings Anil circles of foliage. It is hoped that in order to give full scope to the dignity of this apartment it May eventually lie decided to Call in the Aid it polychrome a description of ornament unusually calculated to enhance in appearance the festive Joys of which this room is destined to he tile theatre. Whilst matters of this nature have been considered other Points of practical value have not been lost sight of. One of the windows opens towards the Street to an extensive Balcony the Public uses of which will readily suggest themselves. Returning Down the Broad store stairs which brought us hither we Are in immediate proximity to the Library and Reading room Lief re mentioned calculated by their position to insure cheerfulness and Comfort and separated from thu rooms devoted to magisterial business by a spacious Entrance Hall leading directly from the Street to the Corn Exchange. Proceeding to Tho Street we find the rooms we have surveyed presenting a commanding front of two stories. The whole faced with Maister store and divided into a Centre piece slightly projecting with arcades of three Arches in both stories tile lower having attached columns of the tuscan Anil the upper of the ionic order the whole surmounted by a clock Turret of Light design rising to an Altitude of eighty five feet from the ground Anil wings with arched window in character with the Central design. The Balcony before mentioned forms a natural feature in the Centre of the front which is divided in height by string courses enriched by panels filled with Derbyshire Marble and surmounted by a bold Vignola Cornice and a Balustrade. The front is 93 feet Long and 49 feet from the pavement to the top of the Balustrade. Retracing our Steps we pass through the Entrance Hall to the Corn Exchange which though last in order is by no Means least Iii importance. It is a room 80 feet by 45, and 35 feet High and besides tile Entrance by which we have approached it has the convenience of a Side Entrance for the delivery of goods. Externally this part of the building is entirely shut off from Public View and therefore the whole interest of its architectural features has been confined to the Interior and they Are unusually effective yet very simple derived entirely from the construction of the work. The sides and ends Are enclosed by Blank arcades solid in appearance from the Piera of which Spring laminated Timber Arches strengthened by ornamental ironwork and carrying a roof of which about one half being space the whole length of the roof is Glass by which the building is lighted tar More effectively than if the same space had been disposed in the Walls in the usual manner. The arcaded Walls afford the Opportunity for a slight variety of Colour in the finishing of the work which prevents Monotony. Attached to the Cora Exchange Are the offices. Offenders although one it the stolen handkerchiefs ha3 been found.

A the Rev. Gentleman in the next place explained the grounds upon which auricular confession teas attempted to be maintained. Tile texts quoted by Challoner on the a binding and loosing a Power were severally considered and it appeared obvious that each of them was either blindly mistaken or cunningly perverted by the Romish advocates who nevertheless profess infallibility when uttering sophists or absurdities.

In firing and continued until three when the main Boily came up Anil a tremendous fight ensued. russians had their ground picked and had temporary fortifications thrown up Aud i am sure that 2000 British troops having the same ground would have held it against any number of russians although they fought desperately they were obliged to abandon their position Atter three hours hard fighting. They were quite beaten. I believe tile russians thought it would take us Alnut a month to take the place hut it was not More than three hours from the time the body of the army came till Tho russians retreated.
