We are enabled to state that Sir Edward Blakeney goes out to Canada in the place of Sir John Colbome ; and that Sir Francis Adam is to have the command of the forces in Ireland. These appointments have not been noticed in any of the London or Irish Government journals.—Dublin Mail.
Lord Charles Wellesley embarks for Canada early in the ensuing month, to assume the command of the 15th foot, to the Leiutenant-Colonelcy of which corps his lordship has been appointed.
Some time since we alluded to the neglect shown to Col. Wetherall by the Government for his services in Canada. Since then the decoration of a companion of the Bath has been conferred on that gallant officer. The same distinction has been given to Colonel Gore.
We cannot give a list of the services of Lieutenant-Colonel O’Reilly, late of the African corps, nominated a companion of the Bath, in the last Gazette, not being aware of any having been performed ; perhaps the connection of that officer with the Duke of Roxburgh, who has given in his adhesion to the present Ministry (the colonel being married to his grace’s mother), may have had an influence in the quarter from which such honours emanate.
The following officers have retired from the army during the past week:—Captains Moore, 1st Dragoons; Johnstone, 50th regiment; Stewart,’58th regiment; Lieutenant Lambart, Coldstream guards; Ensign Singleton, 80th regiment.
The retirement of Sir John Colbome from the command of the army in Canada must be looked upon as a national loss. His high military character, great popularity, knowledge of the country and its inhabitants, rendered him peculiarly fitted for the important post he occupied, and his resignation at the present moment will be the more severely felt in consequence of the very difficult position we at present hold’with the American States.
Another instalment towards the liquidation of the claim held by the Duke of Roxburgh on the present Government for his support has been received, namely, the continuance of his grace’s father-in-law, Sir' J. C. Dalbiac, as Inspecting-General of cavalry in Great Britain, although incapacitated, according to usual custom, by his late promotion to the rank of Lieutenant-General. This announcement excludes other general officers, with certainly equal, if not superior claims, from a fair chance of any participation in the benefits derivable from such situations. ■
Officers from the half-pay seeking to be appointed to militia adjutan-cies are, in future, to undergo an examination to ascertain their capability for the discharge of the duties, nor are they, when appointed, to exceed 40 years of age.
Major-General Sir Maurice O’Connell, accompanied by his military Secretary, Captain O’Connell (formerly Brigadier-General in the Legion), has left town for Plymouth, for the purpose of embarking for New South Wales.
The following Captains of the Royal Navy have pensions of 150/. per annum, each, granted to them for good services, since our last:— Nathaniel Day Cochrane (1806), W. Jones Lye (1806), Matthew Smith (b. 1808), Sir F. Augustus Collier, Kut., C.B., K.C.H. (1808), Charles Gill, C.B. (180!)), Charles Dilkes (1809), Francis Newcombe, C.B. (1809), Thomas Forrest, C.B. (1809), Sir Nisbet Josiah Willoughby, Knt., C.B., K.C.H. (1810),

Descent of the Vauxhall Balloon.—The aerial voyagers of the great Nassau balloon, which ascended from Vauxhall on Tuesday afternoon, were safely landed on terra finna, after a most magnificent trip of 55 minutes, near the village of Oxted, in Sussex, a distance of 22 miles from the spot where they ascended. The female aeronauts were enraptured with the voyage; and we are given to understand that Mr. Green had no sinecure place in enforcing his “ floating regulations,” not allowing them to overlook too far from the car, which the ladies seemed bent upon, in exploring the regions below. The balloon did not attain an altitude higher than 2000 feet; every object, for upwards of thirty miles, was distinctly observed; the. windings of the river, as far as Sheerness, could be plainly seen by the naked eye. The descent took place in a meadow where cattle were feeding, belonging to the farm of Mr. Young, who, as soon as the balloon was freed from gas and packed up, seized it and all its appendages for the damage done to a field of wheat which was trodden down by the inhabitants of Oxted, and grossly insulted Mr. Green, who, with Mr. Hughes (a son of a proprietor of-jVauxhall), offered a handsome sum as recompense, at the same time observing it was not the balloon that had done the injury,or any person that belonged to it. The sum was refused, and Mr. Young now has the possession of the machine.
The Postage Committee has, it is said, passed resolutions g’ ln conformity with Mr. Rowland Hill’s plan,

THE LATE FATAL RIOT IN KENT.
The village of Boughton, in which the fatal catastrophe resulting from the conduct of the maniac Courtenay occurredi is now restored to its wonted state of tranquillity. Even the place in which that unhappy man is interred can hardly be discovered, the mound erected over his grave having sunk to the level of the earth. The two men, George Griggs, ar.d Henry Hadlow, who were included in the verdict of wilful murder returned by the coroner’s jury, are still lying at Boughton. The former was shot in the lungs, and the wound was of such a dangerous character that immediately after he was removed to Boughton the case was considered hopeless. The vicar of Boughton has administered the sacrament to him. He has, however, rallied in the most extraordinary manner, and it. is expected that he will recover and take his trial. The other man, Hadlow, had his thigh-bone broken, and it is thought he will also be well enough to be removed to Maidstone. The Rev. Mr. Handley has frequently questioned them as to their motives in joining the maniac Thom, and they now appear to be quite ashamed of their folly in believing Thom to be the Saviour of the world. They are both exceedingly anxious relative to what may be the result of their trial.
The whole number in Maidstone Gaol awaiting their trial is 14—10 under the coroner's warrant, and four by the magistrates at Faversham. The prisoners committed by the magistrates are kept separate from those committed by the coro-:ner. Among the latter were Alexander Foad and John Mears, the latter being wounded in the leg. Foad is a miserable object, the greater portion of his teeth, and his lips, and part of his tongue, being shot away, and it is difficult to un -derstand him when he speaks. Mears is lame, and will probably be so for life. Thomas Ovenden is very little better than an idiot, being hardly capable of judging right from wrong. The majority of the prisoners appear to have received a much better education than is generally to be found among persons of their station in life. Six or seven can read and ’write, several can read very well, and there are not more than three of the whole number who can do neither. As the time approaches for the trial they grow anxious upon the subject, and some of them seem to have made up their minds that the result will be most serious. William Wills, the best-educated man among them, and who is represented as having taken the most active part in the affray, is very taciturn. He is a determined fellow, and does not seem to like to be spoken to upon the subject. He says he has made up his mind, and is ready to abide the consequences. Upon the Rev. Mr. Winter, the chaplain of the gaol, one day asking him how a man who. had received a good education, and who would naturally be supposed to have known better, could possibly believe the story told by Thom of his being the Saviour, he replied, “ Sir, I cannot tell how it was—my knowledge is nothing to what his was. I was completely lost, and could not help joining him, and I would have died with him.” Since the prisoners have been committed to Maidstone gaol, it appears that more than half of the number were out of employment, and, notwithstanding what has been said to the contrary, the prisoners state that Thom made violent denunciations against the new poor law in his addresses to his followers. They also state that he told them that if they followed him they should never want for any thing, but should always have plenty. Foad, however, is possessed of property. This man is of rather weak intellect, and he has already suffered severely for the part he took in the unfortunate affair. The authorities have come forward in their behalf, and a solicitor has been instructed to defend the prisoners. It is rather a curious fact that Wills, the reputed ringleader of the affair, now occupies the same portion of the parish in which “ Sir William Courtenay” was formerly placed, after his conviction of the crime of perjury.
CHARING CROSS HOSPITAL.
On Saturday the annual meeting of the governors of this establishment was held in the board-room of the hospital.
The Marquis of Westminster, as one of the presidents, took the chair at two o’clock ; there was also a very full attendance of the governors present on this occasion.
The annual report was read by John Robertson, Esq., the honorary secretary. From that statement we have collected the following facts ; the first of which is that her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to become the patron of the hospital, and to contribute a benefaction of ¿£‘20 annually towards its funds, and that the Marquis of Westminster has accepted the office of president of the institution—and, in the room of the late William Copeland, Esq., a trustee of the hospital; the Rev. George Hull Bowers has accepted that office ; and Mr. Partridge, the assistant surgeon, has been appointed one of the principal surgeons.
The benefactors and annual subscribers have increased since the last general meeting in proportion to the sick and suffering objects admitted for relief. In corroboration of this fact the hon. secretary read a list of donations and annual subscriptions from new supporters of the hospital, viz.: —James Dover, Esq., ¿6100 ; Thomas French, Esq., 40 guineas; L. M. Simons, Esq., 40 guineas; Miss Burdett Coutts, 40 guineas; H. Hancock, Esq., 40 guineas; Earl Brownlow, ¿£25; Neill Malcolm, Esq., ¿25; Lord De Sau-marez, 20 guineas; Sir Richard Luston, Bart., 20 guineas; R. Arkwright, Esq., 20 guineas; P. M. Cobbet, Esq., 20 guineas; Richard Hunter, Esq“., 20 guineas ; W. Edgar, Esq., 20 guineas; J. H. Mann, Esq., 20 guineas; B. Frere, Esq., 20 guineas; Mr. Marsden, 10 guineas; Sir John Cowan, Bart., Lord Mayor, 10 guineas ; Hon. H. W. Dow-nay, 10 guineas; Alderman Copeland, 10 guineas; Mrs Rothschild, 10 guineas; Lord Blantyre, 5 guineas; Messrs. Bleadon and Co., of the London Tavern, 5 guineas ; Hugh Andrews, Esq., 5 guineas; W. West, Esq., 5 guineas; and several others, from ten to two guineas, whose names we could not collect. The hon. secretary then read the following list;—The Marquis of Westminster, an additional donation of ¿£200; the Duke of Cleveland (additional), ¿£50; Dowager Lady Suffield (additional), ¿650; Lord Feversham, ¿£'25; Jo seph Delafield, Esq., 20 guineas ; Henry Davidson, Esq., 20 guineas; J. Thiselthwaite, Esq., 20 guineas; John Pearce, Esq., 10 guineas; Earl of Stamford and Warrington, ¿£20; the Earl of Leicester, lOguineas ; Sir T. B. Mash, 10 guineas; John Labouchere, Esq., 10 guineas ; Decemus Burton, Esq., 10 guineas; C. Holtzapfel, Esq., 10 guineas; with many others of equal value.
Amongst the bequests to this institution is one from an early and zealous member of the committee, Lord Farnbo-rough, who has left to this hospital £2000.
The report then stated the number of in-patients admitted last year to be 1209, besides 4548 out-patients, during the same period ; these, with the former returns, make a total of 54,211 sick and suffering persons, who have participated in the benefits of this instution.
The receipts for the year, to 31st December, 1837, were £2669 15s. Id. The yearly expenditure to that time was ¿62231 6s. 9§d., leaving a balance of ¿£438 8s. 3fd. in the treasurer’s hands.
The report was received and adopted.
Mr. Thomas Davidson Pow, whose death in St. Pancras has excited so great a sensation in that district from its manner and the subsequent verdict of the coroner’s jury, was a native of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and son of the late Mr. B. Pow, who was a tradesman of much respectability and a common councilman of that town.
Lord Ranelagh has written a letter from Baden-Baden, stating that he is the person who furnished the information relative to the blockade of the eastern coast of Spain, which Lord Lyndhurst lately brought before the House of Lords There was no breach of confidence made by any officer of her Majesty’s navy, as the orders in question were publicly spoken of at Barcelona at the time.
The minority on Lord Ashley’s motion, almost to a man, consisted of Conservatives, the true friends of the people, and the majority was made up, with scarcely an exception, of Whigs and Radicals, the pretended friends of the poor. Of the thirteen members returned from Lincolnshire one only, Mr. Handley, voted in the majority with Ministers. Two— viz., Mr, Brownrigg and Col. Sibthorp, voted in the minority with Lord Ashley; the remaining ten members were absent. —Bolton Herald.
Cataract.—In another part of our paper is a very important announcement of a singularly ingenious and eminently successful operation for cataract, by a distinguished and scientific oculist. When we consider that restoration of sight can be attained with such an immense reduction, or the entire saving, of pain, and compare the result with the severe sufferings and total failures too frequently experienced under every other mode of treatment, it is impossible too highly to appreciate the improvements Mr. Stevenson has'been the happy means of introducing into the ophthalmic branch of surgery. To those who are interested in' the subject, we can conscientiously recommend the Fourth Edition of the author’s small and familiar work on “Cataract,”in which the advantages of the system alluded to, as well as every other topic connected with the disease, are mo3t satisfactorily elucidated and explained.—See Advertisement.
Mrs. Mottram, the cara sposa of a gentleman residing near the Foundling Hospital, presented her husband with a baby on the morning of the day of George the Fourth’s coronation ; she did the same on the morning of William the Fourth’s ; and, to crown all, she did the same on the morning of our youthful Victoria’s coronation day.—Literary Gazette.
The Swedish Police.—Hooking.—On perambulating the streets during night, each carries an instrument something like a pitchfork, having a spring at the end of it, by which a mauvais sujet when in the act of flight, can either be taken by the neck or leg, and thus secured roost effectually, which, saves these guardians of the night much trouble in running after them unarmed.—Rae Wilson’s Travels in Norway and Sweden.
THE COMMISSION OF LUNACY ON LADY SEYMOUR.
On Wednesday, the inquiry into the state of mind of Dame Sarah Lydia Seymour, the widow of Sir William Seymour, formerly one of the judges of Bombay, was resumed before Commissioners Winslow, Blunt, and Murray, at the Swan Tavern, Walham-green, Fulham-road. On this occasion the Recorder appeared, in addition to Mr. Russell, in support of the commission ; and Mr. Monroe on the part of Lady Seymour.
It will be recollected that the inquiry was adjourned in consequence of several of the jury entertaining an opinion that at the moment of her ladyship being examined in the presence of the jury her ladyship was in a sane state of mind, and they, therefore, wished an opportunity to be afforded them of ascertaining whether such would be the case on a future day before they returned a verdict.
The Recorder then said his course would be to show what had taken place relative to the lady since the last meeting, and he should, therefore, first call Lady Seymour’s sister to show that a change had taken place since that period.
Mrs. Sophia Harriet Ramsden examined by the Recorder: I am sister to Lady Seymour, I saw her on Monday last for the first time since Christmas ; I did so in consequence of a letter from my brother to me in Cambridgeshire, that she wished to see me; it was in the afternoon that I saw her at Normam! House; my brother took me into the room, but twice left me alone for a quarter of an hour; I told her I came to see her at her own request, but she would not answer me one word, but nodded her head ; I asked her if she was glad to see me, when she signified yes by a nod; I then asked her why she did not speak, when she directed my attention to her hands, which were within the waistcoat with which she was confined ; I then asked her if anything preyed upon her mind, when she again nodded her head, and on my pressing her to unburden her mind she burst into tears ; I spoke to her on various subjects, and about her son, but I could not elicit an answer; she appeared very dejected; I kissed her, and she returned my salute, and appeared pleased to see me; on my entering the room she threw her head on my shoulder and burst into tears; the attendant was in the room, but left us at times alone, yet during no portion of my being with her did she speak one word ; I was with her about an hour and ten minutes, and did every thing I could to induce her to speak.
By Sir John Hansler: I had seen her on several occasions previously with a strait waistcoat on ; I do not think it was on that account that she wept; she was not at all violent.
Sarah Francis, who was examined on tho previous occasion, was then recalled and examined by the Recorder : Lady Seymour, since the first meeting, has several times expressed a wish to see Mrs. Ramsden; she first did soon the same evening while I was walking with her in the garden; she was very communicative; she said she wished the inquiry had taken place some months ago, that now it was useless, as she should soon get better ; she said she was extremely unhappy, as she had something on her mind which she wished to divulge ; and in answer to my endeavours to ascertain what it was, she said if she could see her sister she thought she could tell her ; on several occasions consequently she expressed the same wish to see Mrs. Ramsden, and I consequently told Captain Oaks in her presence that, if she was sent for, I thought she would tell Mrs. Ramsden that which was on her mind ; Captain Oaks then asked her if such was her wish, when she nodded her head ; the day after the first meeting of the jury she did not speak once during the whole of the day, notwithstanding her brother was with her for an hour ; on the 18th, she asked for a biscuit, which was all she spoke on that day, and between that day and the 19th she did not speak above two or three times; once she said she did not intend to eat any dinner fora twelvemonth, as it was very wicked to kill the animals; on another occasion she asked what her bed was stuffed with, and when I told her feathers, she said she thought it was stuffed with snakes ; on Monday last, previous to the visit of Mrs. Ramsden, Lady Seymour was very violent; she poured cold water on the crown of her head, and struck at me more than once, looking each time very angrily at me; I then fetched the strait waistcoat, and saying I thought she was notwell, put it on her ; I, however, previous to the arrival of Mrs. Ramsden, wished to take it off, but she resisted, and was very angry ; on one occasion, in allusion to her not speaking, she said when she spoke she often talked a deal of nonsense, and she therefore put a restraint on herself.
By Mr. Barlow: She has not, since the 11th instant, wished her food to be taken to her son ; previously she has, and also to Rama Ghee Kamghe and Juggernaut, two of the Indian gods ; she had, about two months ago, attempted to do herself an injuty, but I have not considered it necessary to debar her of her scissors; her conversation has at times not been that of a well-educated person, but not since the 11th instant. By Mr. CommissionerWinslow: On the evening of the 11th, she asked me what I thought of her answer to the question put to her by the jury, as to what sum of money of her property, were she allowed possession, she would require per annum ; she said she at first thought she would answer ¿62000, but it then occurred to her that that would appear very foolish, not having that amount; she then thought of ¿6500, but she ultimately thought it would be better to say she would regulate her expenditure by her income. Mr. Henry Prince, of Hendon, Middlesex, examined by the Recorder: I have known Lady Seymour several years, aiad have seen her three times since the 11th instant.
The Recorder handed to the witness a letter, dated June 15, 1837, containing a check to the following effect:—
Messrs. Hoare and Co., pay Mr. Charles Henry Oaks the sum of ¿620,000. (Signed) Sarah Lydia Seymour.” He asked if that was in the handwriting of Lady Seymour.
Witness: It is; it was placed by Mrs. Talfourd in my hand in the month of March last.
The Recorder then showed the witness some other documents, which were in the handwriting of Lady Seymour, and asked him when he received them ?
Witness said in March last, either from Mrs. Talfourd or Lady Seymour. They were not opened until Monday, The documents were then read by Mr. Russell. The first, which was written in pencil, purported to be her will, and was addressed to Mr. Charles Henry Oaks and Mr. Lewis. Its contents were a tissue of incoherencies, such as leaving her clothes, goods, chattels, and all her possessions, to her son, William Henry Seymour, and to his lawfully wedded wife, to whom he was to be married on the 24th of July, 1854 ; and after bequeathing her pencil-case, and some articles to Juggernaut, and appointing an Indian prince as her residuary legatee, went onto appoint tv ree members of the firm of Hoare and Co., the bankers, and Sir Thomas Acland, Bart., as pall-bearers'at her funeral,- and directed that her body should be buried in “ sweet Godstone church-yard,” afterwhich the coffin was to be emptied of its contents, which were to be thrown into the channel on the coast of Devonshire, and it concluded by leaving to “ Boatswain --six halfpennies.” The other document was a letter addressed to " Messrs. Hoare and Co., No 37, Fleet-street,” the commencement of which was an inquiry as to the value of “ the Southampton and London Railway” and “ Great Western Railway” shares, and the amount of cash belonging to her which they had in their hands. It then went on to say that she wished to allow the sum of .£400 per annum to her son, £100 to be drawn quarterly by Mr. John Lubbock, sod of Sir John Lubbock, to buy for her son " warm clothing” and “ amusement for the mind and sight, and for salt water for his person, just so much as might be determined on by Mr. and Mrs. Lubbock as necessary for a strong healthy child of his years.” It then desired that each of the clerks in the banking house might receive “ one pound one shilling each year, and in the mean time to pay what is justly due.” On the outside was written “ There are three witnesses to this, only one has just vanished ; Mrs. Talfourd has just come in, and the other has returned, so there may be four ;” and enclosed was a piece of paper on which was written “ The inside is a sacred volume,” which, on being opened, was found to contain only a piece of red worsted. -
The jury, after hearing the documents, which were very lengthened, read by the learned counsel, expressed their surprise that they had not been brought forward at the first meeting. Had that been done they would probably not have had any difficulty in making up their minds.
Lady Seymour was then introduced. As on the former occasion, she was accompanied by her brother. On taking a chair at the upper end of the room the learned commissioners shook hands with her.
Mr. Commissioner Winslow then said: How have you been since we last saw you, Lady Seymour?
Lady Seymour stared at the jury, and made no reply.
Commissioner Winslow: Do you not recollect having seen us before? which question he repeated twice, but Lady Seymour said nothing in reply.
Several other questions were then put to the unfortunate lady, to which she only shook her head ; and she became so agitated and distressed that it was considered advisable to bring in her sister, Mrs. Ramsden. On that lady taking her seat by the side of her, Commissioner Winslow said : Do you know Mrs. Ramsden, Lady Seymour? To which Lady Seymour replied by a nod of recognition. She then, while whispering something toMrs. Ramsden, suddenly jumped up, and comminced counting the jury and the number of other persons in ^he room with her finger, sobbing dreadfully, and treading the ground quickly with one of her feet. She at last became so agitated that the jury said it was not necessary her . excitement should be prolonged, when she was led from the room.
Dr. Mo'nroe was then examined : He deposed to having seen Lady Seymour on several occasions, both before and subsequent to the 11th instant; and his decided opinion was that she was certainly of unsound mind, and incapable of managing her affairs, when the jury said there was no occasion to call further evidence, and they retired to consider their verdict.
After an absence of an hour and a half they again came into the room, and Sir James Williams, the foreman, said their verdict was that ‘‘ Lady Sarah Lydia Seymour is now a lunatic, and incapable of managing her affairs, and has been so since the loth of May, 1837; but the jury cannot agree whether she had a lucid interval on the 11 th instant.” The Commissioners told the jury it was necessary twelve of them Should be unanimous in their verdict.
The Foreman said they were unanimous as to the first part, but could not agree on the latter point.
The Jury then again retired, and after an absence of only a few minutes, returned the following verdict:—“ We find that Lady Sarah Lydia Seymour is now a lunatic, and incapable of managing her affairs, and has been so since the 12th of July, 1838.”
The Commissioners said they could not receive the verdict in that shape, as it was equivalent to finding her of sane mind at the period of issuing the commission, which was dated the 4th instant. It was only up to that date that they were to direct their attention and to confine their verdict.
After much discussion the jury, several of whom said if they were to sit until Christmas their opinion on the case would be unaltered, retired for the third time. After an absence of half an hour they returned again into the room with the following verdict, which was ultimately recorded :—“ We find that Dame S. Lydia Seymour is now a lunatic without lucid intervals, and has been so from the 17th day of May, J837, to the 10th day of July, 1838, both days inclusive; and from the 12th day of July, 1S38, to the present day, both inclusiv 2.”

Steam Vessex.s.—About 5000 tons are about to be hid down for the companies from England to New York, all to be built in this country, where steam machinery is known to be much more economical and perfect than in the United States. A company is also in progress for steam navigation, on a large scale, to the East Indies, by way of the Cape of Good Hope; and another for the establishment of iron steamers in the Ganges and its tributaries, to the ■ city of Agra, which will cover 1000 miles of the presidency of Bengal. To Brazil there are steam-vessels about to depart from Liverpool, for the navigation of the coast from Rio de Janeiro to Bahia and Pernambuco; and one iron vessel also is building at Southampton for the Rio Doce river; whilst a third company has obtained an exclusive privilege for the navigation, by steam vessels, of the bay of Bahia for a certain number of years.
Railway Compensation Case.—In the Sheriff’s Court, on Tuesday, Mr. Brown, landlord of a public-house in Spital-fields, obtained from the Eastern Counties Railway Company, £ 1 000 as compensation for his premises! that are required by the company, and the injury which will be caused to his business by removal, the company agreeing to take the furniture and fixtures at a valuation. The claim was ¿£1500.
Parochial Economy.—On the conclusion of an inquest, held on Tuesday in the parish of Lambeth, on the body of a man who threw himself into the river, a charge of 5s. was made on the friends of the deceased for the use of the shall and shroud in which the body had been placed. In explanation of this charge the grave-digger stated that since the new poor law had come into operation a Mr. Simpson had contracted with the parish for shells and coffins, and that the parish had not a shell of its own. Other items in the bill referred to were 3s. to men for laying out the body, and 4s. to policemen for carrying it. After some altercation the body was given up to the deceased’s friend’s, who refused to discharge the amount, the grave-digger saying the parish must pay the bill.
Alarming Distress in the Shetland Islands.—Extract from a minute of the Shetland Destitution Committee, Lerwick, July 9, 1838:—“ This committee grieve to find that the majority of the London committee should have departed from the proposal to which they had unanimously assented, of sending one of their members to inquire into the truth of the reports from Zetland, and that they should persist in discrediting,' or in affecting to discredit, the authenticated evidence laid before them, directly by Mr. Barclay, when lately in London ; and also the report of the Aberdeen committee, establishing the fact that deep and extensive destitution pervades the Zetland islands, in consequence of the almost total failure of the crops, and the partial failure of the fishing last year. This committee are also bound to record their conviction that if the London committee refuse to send further supplies to Zetland, the consequence to the many thousands of destitute persons in these islands must be deplorable, and may prove fatal, while the London committee will not only be guilty of a violation of the pledge given to Mr. Dundas and Mr. Barclay, but will also involve themselves in the guilt of violating the trust reposed in them by the subscribers, and the provincial committees, who furnished them with the funds for the express and sole purpose of supplying the destitute with the necessaries of life.”
Parents have generally been proud of being told that their child was •• a fine boy or girl of its age.” In the mill districts this is no longer a pride, but a misfortune ; a backward stunted child having by far the better chance of escaping a year or two’s white slavery.

We had a fair average time-of-year supply of Beasts exhibited ir. this day’s market, with which the trade was tolerably steady, but by no means brisk, at ful'.y, but at nothing quotably beneath last week's prices. The supply of Sheep was tolerably good, yet there was a somewhat increased demand for them at stationary prices. Although the supply of I.ambs was large they commanded a ready sale, at previous currencies. Calves were in moderate supply and steady demand, at unaltered prices. Pigs, the supply of which was limited,'experienced a sluggish sale at the prices beneath quoted. Fewer Beasts and Sheep have been consigned for sale to this market during the present month than in any month this year, owing to the comparatively low price? which have been of late realised for them here. The demand for s'.cre stock, which was in short supply, was rather brisk, and the whole of it offered for sale was disposed of at enhanced rates.

The supply of Wheat by land samples this morning was moderate, ar.d the secondary qualities met with a good demand at prices equal to our currency of this day se’nnight ; but the best selected samples were a dull sale, at Is. to 2s. decline We had no buyers of Bonded Wheat, and prices must be considered nominal, as holders are not disposed to submit to lower prices. Barley is selling on about the same terms. Beans are in good demand at our quotations, and Peas without alteration in valup. The Oat trade continues in the same dull state.
Our supply of wheat is very small, and in the transactions that have taken place Is. advance has been realised. There is more inquiry for bonded on speculation, owing to !he unfavourable report of the crops, and this article is Is. to 2s. dearer. Barley is rather improving in value, owing to the short stocks. Peas and Beans are without alteration. The Oat trade is dull at Monday’s prices.
