“ Informed by history and by our own recollections of the perpetual abuse which the priests have made of this rigljt, and well assured that a clerical education is not in the»19th century suited to our children, who are all intended for the career of tbe sciences or manufactures, we protest against this general privilege of teaching, which, in our small parishes, where the sacerdotal power is immense, would only establish a monopoly in favour of the priests.”

THE EAST INDIA CHARTER.
I From the Standard. J
We are persuaded that in effect the commerce of the country would rather lose than gain, even in the first instance, by the overthrow of the East India Cqinpany; while, ultimately, the continent of India, together with all its trade with it, might be placed in jeopardy by such a violent measure—such a revolution, indeed, as far as India would he concerned. All this evil we think we see plainly; and we see with perfect certainty an immeasurably greater danger in perspective-objects perilled of inestimably greater vaiue than any amount of commerce—a country threatened incomparably more interesting and precious than India. These objects are our rights as freemen—that country is England. If the privilege and profits of its monopoly be withdrawn from the company, the company niust be relieved, or it will relieve itself, of the expense ^supporting all the military, judicial, fiscal, political, aad municipal establishments of that vast section of Asia. The expense will thus devolve upon this country; and as the patronage of establishments necessarily attends the expense, the whole patronage of the richest half of Asia—a patronage ten times greater in amount than what George the Third said truly would $?ke the crown off his head—will fall into the hands of the minister of the day. We care not who he may He, let him be a» honest as Percival, or. as mild and kind-hearted as Goderich, that minister will owe it to his own virtue only, if he do not depose the reigning family, and abolish the houses of Parliament. He will have the power to do so. This may seem to be exaggerated language; but it is not stronger than the language employed by the King and Mr. Pitt against Mr. Fox’s India Bill in 1783; and what a multitude 0,f circumstances have arisen since to justify much stronger language than was then suitable! The territory about the patronage of which the whole qtres tion is concerned, has been increased fourfold in extent, and, by the extinction of all adjacent rivalry, as well'as by the general improvement of commercial pursuits, twentyfold in value. The independence of Parliament, and the sympathy of Parliament with the people, and the personal influence of the Sovereign, Have they increased in a proportion to balance such a prodigious accession of strength to the hands of the minister? Alas! no; the subserviency of Parliament, and its indifference to the feelings of the people, have been proved to a degree which it would have been thought treason to surmise in 1783. The King has been forced to yield with tears, what his father said he would not yield, though his head were laid to the scaffold. Bv its last act of subserviency, too, the Parliament has made recovery to independence eternally hopeless; it has given to the will of the minister one hundred votes, one hundred Irish members, who, at the next election, will be either Papis's professed, or nominal Protestants, willing to do the work of the priesthood, which, as the minister has in his hands the bribe on earth most coveted by that priesthood, will be the work of the minister. We ask, thenj once more, are we not justified in repeating the language employed against Mr. Fox’s bill, which bill, too, only proposed to admit the minister of the day into a partnership with the directors in the proposal of that patronage which the present project of the quacks would surrender to him altogether. To the people we ad-• drezs this language, which it would be vain to address ■to the houses of Parliament. The members of those houses know well in what stream a flood of patronage thrown upon the minister will naturally flow off. Let the people remember, then, when an impudent quack Jtalks to them about the “ price of tea,” or the demand s/or calicoes, or other stuff of the kind, that he is not figuratively but literally inviting them to an imitation if that giutton who sold his birth-right for a meal— or but one meal, too; for they have full experience n the cases of beer, and sugar, and. tobacco, that a ninister knows how to tax as well as a company— with this fearful difference, that ministerial taxes furnish arms which maybe employed against the freedom of the people, which is not the case of the taxes levied by any commercial company. In what we have said we have made no allusion to any particular minister, Because the case of danger is so strong that it cannot be enhanced by any man’s personal character; scarcely an angel ought to be trusted as a minister, after tbe patronage of India had been wrested from its present possessors. “Ce sont les circumstances qui font e-fclore et croitre J’ambition,” says Rochefoucau.lt: to •make a man a minister in such case, were almost to compel him to tyranny and usurpation.
THE DUTCH SCHEME OF AGRICULTURAL EMPLOYMENT FOR THE POOR.
(From the London Courier.J
The Netherlands, like this country, felt severely the transition from war to peace, and the superabundance of labourers, arising from the discharge of soldiers and seamen, as well as from the suspension of manufactures of arms and military stores. The lessons of a state of trial are seldom Host on the prudent and reflecting Hollanders; they saw the extent of the distress, and were anxious to alleviate it. On turning their view to manufactures,/ they perceived that machinery, moved by the almost unlimited power of steam, was producing fabrics in quantities unparalleled, and at a price with which the cheapest manual labour could not maintain a competition. In agriculture the case was different; prices, though greatly reduced since the peace, were still higher than before the French Revolution, and a farther fall would be of no very serious effect to a settlement such as they contemplated, viz., for raising corn and other produce, not for sale, but for consumption on the spot. The wants of a family in humble life may all be comprised under the heads of food, clothins, and lodging ; and of these the proportions in the family of a country labourer are nearly as follow :—
Food and drink..............
Clothing and washing........
Fuel and light..............
Cottage rent and contingencies,

The proposition was to locate a body of poor in a retired country district, in the hope of their being able to support, or nearly support, themselves by their own labour. If they were able to raise their subsistence, it followed that they would defray more than half their wants, while any surplus which they might raise could be sold, and applied to meet the other heads of their expenditure. Whatever, in short,— Could be produced by their labour would be a saving to the community, pledged as it already was to support them ; for the persons to be placed in the Jfcb* posed colony were mechanics, manufacturers, arfil labourers, who, being out of work, had become chargeable on their respective parishes. Under these impressions a society was formed in Holland, in 1818, with a small capital of 50001. sterling. Their first step was to purchase a tract of poor, or almost barren laud, about 1,300 acres in extent, in an inland district, adjoining a small river, which in that level country was easily rendered na -igable. The first buildings erected were fifty two oottages, for the same number of indigent families, a warehouse, a school-house, and sginning-houses for the females. Each family received an allotment of seven acres, and were supplied out of the funds of the society with food and clothing for one year, that is, until they should rave produce sufficient for their support. In return, the settlers gave their labour, and were paid for it at a fixed rate, not by the day, but by the quantity of work done. On this plan operations commenced ; first, the making of the bricks; next, the erection of tbe cottages and barns; and afterwards the field labour. Every evening, the workman received a card, stating tile amount of his earnings, and food in proportion was delivered, to him at the public store. If, from accident, or any particular cause, his earnings fell short of his wants, tbe food was delivered to him notwithstanding, and the amount was deducted out of his future earnings. The females were employed partly in household work, partly in spinning and weaving ; the children partly at school, partly in such work as suited their early years; all bemg paid, like the men, according to the exact quantity of work performed. The settlers thus la. boured for their own account, as much as if they had lived out of the community ; for if, at the end of tbe year (or, rather, at the end of the harvest,) their earnings exceeded the advances made to them, they received the balance, arid either withdrew or remained as they thought fit. The tillage is performed almost entirely by the spade, it being computed that the increase of the crop from trenching is more than equal to the additional labour. That we know to be ths case from a variety of trials made in tbe neighbourhood of Newcastle and other parts of this country ; but our peasantry have yet to learn that it is practicable by continued labour to confer fertility on a barren heath. Such is th? result at the settlement in question, where the labour of a family of six or seven persons during half the year is found capable of producing by trenching, mixing, and turning the soil, above a hundred tons of a compost of a very enriching quality. Our limits do not permit us to go into the details of the mode of accomplishing this important improvement, but of the fact there is happily no doubt. Tiie tract bought in 1818 for settling the Dutch poor, consisted of 1,300 acres, covered with heath and tixf, and the purchase money was only three pounds an acre. This limited surface now supports above 2000 persons ; and the example of this district having been followed in other parts, the total number of persons supported on spots similarly qulti-vated in the Dutch territory, now exceeds 30,000. The chief objects of cultivation are rye, barley, potatoes, and clover seed. The value of a ton of the com. post produced as already mentioned, chiefly by applying manual labour to the soil, is between six and seven shillings; that is, a field of seven acres, which, without this dressing, would yield a crop worth only S2(. or 33/., is found, by the aid of the manure, to produce a ’
crop worth 48/.

the streets wide-enough fora wheel-carriage. Mr. Frazer’s gig was stepped short almost in its entrance, and the rest of the way was passed in tonjons, through alleys so crowded, so narrow, and so winding, that even a tonj'on sometimes passed with difficulty. The houses are mostly lofty, none I think less than two stories, most of three, and several of five or six,—a sight which I now for the first time saw in India. The streets like those of Chester, are considerably lower than the ground-floors of the houses, which have mostly arched rows in front, with little shops behind them. Above these, the houses are richly embellished with verandahs, galleries, projecting oriel windows and very broad and overhanging eaves, supported by carved brackets. The number of temples is very great, mostly small, and stuck like shrines in the angles of the streets, and under the shadow of the lofty houses.— Their forms, however, are not ungraceful, and they are many of them entirely covered over with beautiful and elaborate carvings of flowers, animals, and palm-branches, equalling in minuteness and richness the best specimens that I have seen of Gothic or Grecian architecture. The material of the bui.dings is a very good stone, from Chunar, but the Hindoos here seem fond of painting them a deep red colour, and, indeed, of covering the more conspicuous parts of their houses with paintings in gaudy colours of flowerpots, men, women, bulls, elephants, gods and goddesses, in all their many formed, many headed, many, handled, and many-weaponed varieties.

The theatre, which had been engaged by Mr. C. for the purpose, is calculated to hold tire admission was fixed at a shilling, it was completely fi’led before eight. The lecturer, in an harangue of an hour and a half, enforced and explained his well known view's on the currency question. As an illustration of the effects of the changes in our money system, he instanced the case of a tradesman in the Strand, whose property, at the time of his eeath, was worth 60,0001.; and of this sum, bequeathed to his ten children, 20,0001. was to go to his daughters, and the residue to his sons. The property had been lately sold, and realized only 18,0001.; not enough by 2,000l. to pay the legacy the father had bequeathed to bis daughters, and leaving the sons, who were to have 40,0001. utterly destitute. The lecture was cheered throughout.

as mastiffs, walk lazily up and down these narrow streets, or are seen lying across them, and hardly to be kicked up (any blows, indeed, given them must be of the gentlest kind, or woe be to the profane wretch who braves the prejudices of this fanatic population) in order to make way for the tonjon. Monkeys sacred to Hnnimaun, the divine ape who conquered Ceylon for Rama, are in some part of the town equally numerous, clinging to all the roofs and little projections of the temples, potting their impertinent head: ' 1
into every fruiterer’s or conlectioner’s snatching the food from the children at their meals. Fakirs’ houses, as they are called, occur at adorned with idols, and sending out an tinkling and strumming of vinas, biyals, and other discordant instruments; while religious mendicants of every Hindoo sect, offering every conceivable deformity, which chalk, cow-dung, disease, matted locks, distorted limbs and disgusting and hideous attitudes of penance can show, literally line the principal streets on both sides. The number of blind persons is very
■ great (1 was going to say of lepers also, but I am not sure whether the appearance on the skin may not have been filth and chalk ;) and here I saw repeated instances of that penance of which I had heard much in Enrope, of men with their legs or arms voluntarily distorted by keeping them in one position, and their hands clenched till their nails grew out at the backs. Their pitiful exclamations as we passed, “ Agha Sa bib,” “ Topee Sahib,” (the usual names in Hindos-tan for an European,) “ khana ke wastejkooch cheez do,” “give me something to eat,” soon drew from me what few pice I had ; but it was a drop of water in the ocean, and the importunities of the rest, as we advanced into the city, were almost drowned in the hubbub which surrounded us. Such are the sightsand sounds which greet a stranger on entering this “ the most Holy City” of Hindostan, “ the Lotus of the world, not founded on common earth, but on the point of Siva’s trident,” a place so blessed, that whoever dies here, of whatever sect, even tliough he should be an eater of beef, so he will but be charitable to the poor brahmins, is sure of salvation. It is, in fact, this very holiness which makes it the common resort of beggars ; since, besides the number of pilgrims which is enormous, from every part of India, as well as from Thibet and the Birman empire, a great multitude of rich individuals in the decline of life, and almost all the great men who are from time to time disgraced or fi nished from home by the revolutions which are continually occurring in the Hindoo states,—come hither to wash away their sins, or to fill up their vacant hours with the gaudy ceremonies of their religion, and really give away great sums in profuse and indiscriminate charity.
The temple court, small as it is, is crow’ded like a farm yard with very fat and very tame bulls, —which thrust their noses into every body’s hand and pocket for gram aud sweetmeats, which their fellow votaries give them in great quantities. The cloisters are no less full of naked devotees, as hideous as chalk' and dung can make them, and the continued hum of “Ram! Rami Ram!” — is enough to make a granger giddy. The place is kept very clean, however, indeed the priests seem to do little else than pour water over the images and the pavement, and I found them not merely willing, but anxious to show me every thing, frequently repeating that they were Papres also, though it is true that they used this circumstance as an argument for my giving them a present.
From this extract it would appear that superstition in all eouutries is nearly the same, and the Brahmins 3eem to give away heaven on much the same principles adopted by a class of priests nearer home. We conclude with the following account of the Rajah of Tanjore.
1 have been passing the last four days in the society of a Hindoo Prince, the Rajah of Tanjore, who quotes Fourcroy, Lavoisier, Linnasus, and Buffon, as fluently as Lady Morgan—has formed a more accurate judg ment of the poetical merits of Shakspeare than that so felicitously expressed,by Lord Byron—and has actually emitted English poetry very superior indeed to Rosseau’s Epitaph on Shenstone—at the same time thbt he is much respected by the English officers in his neighbourhood as a reai good judge ofa horse, and a cool, bold, and dead y shot at a tiger. The truth is, that he is an extraordinary man, who, having in early youth received such an education as old Schwartz, the celebrated missionary, could give him, has ever since continued, in the midst of many disadvantages, to preserve his taste for, and extend his knowledge of, Europan literature—while he has never neglected the active exercises and frank soldierly bearing which become the descendant'of the old Mahratta conquerors, and by which only, in the present state of things, he has it in his power to gratify the prejudices of his people, and prolong his popularity among them. Had he lived in the days of Hyder, he would have been a formidable al y or enemy, for he is, by the testimony of all in his neighbourhood, bold, popular, and insinuating. Ar present, with less power than an English nobleman, he holds his head high, and appears contented; and the print of Buonaparte which hangs in his library is so neutralized by that of Lord Hastings in full costume, that it can do no harm to any body, * ♦ * * To finish the portrait of Maha Rajah
Sanboju, I should tell you that he is a strong built and very handsome middle aged man, with eyes and nose like a fine hawk, and very bushy gray mustachios— generally very splendidly dressed, but with no effeminacy of ornament, and looking and talking more like a favourable specimen of a French general officer than any other object of comparison which occurs to me. His son, Rajah Sewaju (so named after their great ancestor) is a pale, sickly lad of seventeen,—wiio also speaks English, but imperfectly, andon whose account his father lamented with much apparent concern, the impossibility which he had found of obtaining any tolerable instruction in Tanjore. I was moved at this, and offered to take him with me in my present tour, and afterwards to Calcutta, where he might have a-partments in my house, and be introduced into good English society; at the same time, that I would superintend bis studies, and procure for him the best masters which India affords. The father and son, in different ways, the one catching at the idea with great eagerness, the other as if he were afraid to say all he wished, seemed both very well pleased with the pro posal. Both, however, on consulting together, expressed a doubt of the mother’s concurrence: and, accordingly, next day, I had a very civil message, through the Resipent, that the Rannee had already lost two sons; that this survivor was a sickly boy ; that she was sure he would not come back alive, and it would kill her to part with him ; but that all the family joined in gratitude, &c. &c.
A BRUSH WITH GREEK PIRATES IN THE ARCHIPELAGO.
His Majesty’s ships, Seringapatam and Cambrian, were lying at anchor in Orcos Bay in the Island of Negropont. About three o’clock in the afternoon of the 31st of January, 1805, a vessel hove in sight, about eight or nine miles distant. Our telescope were immediately turned to that quarter. The strange sail appeared to be an Ionian brig, with every stitch of canvas set, and coming down the Channel between Negropont and the main,
Nothing occurred to excite any particular attention, until the man at the mast-head called out that the brig was followed by two smaller vessels. In a few minutes we descried, emerging from a tongue of land, two Greek misticoes, yvith every sail set and plying their oars in chase of the brig. These crafts were instantly recognised as pirates; the very gentry we were on the look out for in that station. Although aware of this, they had the audacity to near our anchorage, and in sight of our ships still continued the chase, evidently gaining on the brig, which they, no doubt, calculated on taking under our very guns.— However, they seemed to think they had carried the joke quite far enough ; and knowing that our men-of ’^were wounded, except a young lad, who had been war had pretty long arms, they at last hauled their 1 rn‘ " - - 1 ••
wind, and stood back with all speed for their lurking-places. The Ionian then slackened sail.
Our men, little anticipating that any work was to < be carved out for them that day, were sprawling about the main-deck, listless and longing for something to do, when “ Out boats I" sounded through the ship.— “ Out boats !" The sound was electric. The boats’ crews were on their feet in a moment; and the looks of the others showed how they envied them their share in the job. The men were now seen bustling up to the quarter-deck for their cutlasses, which they busily buckled on, while the gunner distributed a pistol and ammunition to each man. They were in great glee; it was quite a treat for Jack.
The boats were soon lowered, and additional ammunition, provisions, and a small cask of water stowed away in each ; the surgeon and his traps were not forgotten, and a party of marines completed the crew. About four o’clock p. m. the boats, eight in number, and carrying about 120 men, pushed offfrom the ships,! under the command of Lieutenant Marsham of the! Cambrian.
The afternoon was beautiful; the weather warm, with a moderate breeze. We proceeded at a rapid rate. The pirates were a long way a head, and looked like specks on the horizon. We neared the Ionian brig in a few hours ; but I do not recollect if any of our boats boarded her to make any inquiries. There was no time for palavering. As evening approached we had evidently gained fast on the misticoes. Soon after, the moon shone out with all her usual brilliancy in southern climes, and lit us on our chace. There was little talk; a whisper now and then ; the dip of the oar and the regular monotonous sound of the simultaneous pull in the thwarts alone broke the silence, unless when the rowers were relieved.
Six hours and a half had elapsed since we quitted the ships. The Greeks were apparently making for the land, distant about a mile, all sails set, and pulling as hard as they could. We were coming up with them, hand over hand ; our boats were all close together, when a discharge of musketry was poured into us by the large mistico. One poor fellow, who had been relieved from the oars a short time before, was shot through the head. He dropped in the boat like a stone. Several others.were wounded; two or three in the arms, which caused one almost to drop his oar in the water, if the man beside him had not caught it. His place was supplied in an instant. Another and another discharge followed, with many single shots.— Two more fell—one hit in the shoulder, the shot passing into his body. The men were roused to fury. Our marines returned the fire. The Greeks swarmed4 round the sides of their vessels, taking deliberate aim a at our boats. Every sinew was strained ; the boats were impelled forward with redoubled velocity. The, cutlasses were drawn; the men hastily binding them round their wrists by means of a leather thong, technically called “the becket."
Our boats swept round the misticoes on every side,-the Greeks blazing at us, whilst the men could hardly ’ restrain themselves on their seats, muttering curses at the loss they had already sustained from the impudent rascals. One man at the head of the boat,— stretching forward to pull quicker alongside the large mistico, was struck unawares by a Greek from the deck, and severely cut by a yataghan, a crooked sabre cutting like a sickle.
The men were already on their feet, the oars pulled in, and a rush was made up the sides of the Greek, the cutlasses dangling loose from their wrists by the becket. In a moment half a-dozen men were on the enemy’s deck, hacking right and left; the rest were scrambling up like wolves, eager for revenge, each helping and pushing up the man that chanced to precede him, to clear the way for himself. I was hoisted up myself in the same rough and ready way. The men were cheering, not loudly, but deeply, as if choaked with fury; most of them were young hands, and had never been in a skirmish of the sort before; but they were willing workmen] A small party ran forward along with me; no one ever dreamed of looking behind to see if he was followed by the rest! No man, to my knowledge, fired his pistol—all seemed to rely on their trusty cutlass. The Greeks were driven to the extremity of their deck, contending boldly enough with our men, who, however, to use a pugilistic phrase, “ would not be denied.” The simple check shirts and white trowsers of our sailors, formed a striking contrast to the rich coloured garments of the Greeks, many of whom were Albanians, • all armed with muskets, pistols, and yataghans. The latter stood no chance with the cutlass, and its blow could be easily parried. Many came just in time to rid a comrade of his opponent, by lending an additional hand in cutting him down, pushing on to another quarter where the work seemed plenty, trampling on the people who lay sprawling on the deck, and slipping in the blood that already besmeared the planks. The sudden report of the muskets, the short rapid crack of pistols, the clash of the steel, and dull heavy fall of the blows, were the chief sounds heard in the scuffle, along with the sturdy stamping of the combatants, and occasional cheers of the men coming from the boats and joining their comrades.
Many Greeks sprung on the ship’s sides, and then plunging into the sea, made for the shore, distant about a quarter of a mile; others attempting the same feat were cut down by onr fellows in the very act of springing overboard, whilst many were pulled back and dispatched. The fury of the men knew no bounds, and it was no time to attempt to restrain; them. They were mad for" the moment, as men usually are in such hand-to hand sort of work. . Ai tall, fine looking pirate, presented a pistol at my head and fired; ere another moment elapsed he was cloven down to the left eye by one of our men, a stout, mqs-cular seaman, who always passed for an Englishman, though believed to be an Irishman. This man was very conspicuous for the power of his arm, and his dexterity in the use of his weapon. The pirates attempted to guard their heads by means of their yataghans; this man broke through guard and skull at once with a single blow. Several others displayed similar strength of arm. All the men cut at heads and shoulders of the pirates; they seldom or ever, stabbed. The latter manoeuvre was too Frenchified and scholar-like for Jack, who hit hatchet-fashion, felling the Greeks like cattle. Many of the latter, pq being wounded, attempted to scramble out of the fray; and seek shelter apart from the combatants. “ Christiano! Christiano!" they shouted; but their cry for quarter vame, I fear, too late, and with a bad jrace,

The blood of the sailors was on fire—the fate of their messmates stimulated them to ample revenge; and pirates, of all others, are the least entitled to share the mercy they scarcely ever grant. The cries of “Christiano" fell upon deaf ears at that moment.— “Too late, ye -----1” shouted some of the men, fol
flowing up their words by the coup-de-grace. In gen-•eral they went silently to work—the silence of a jthorough-bred bull dog.
The struggle was soon decided. The Greeks flung down their arms, and the wrath of the men was at length and with difficulty restrained by the interposition of their officers. All the pirates who survived ^spared. The smaller mistico had been speedily carried.
The moon, which had shone calmly on the fray, *now conveyed us back to our ships, which we reached ^at two in the morning.
INGENUITY OF THE WASP IN PROCURING FOOD.
There are various species of American wasps, which Teed their young with cock-roaches and other insects. Cassigni furnished Reaumur with an interesting ac-‘count of the mode in which these wasps attack and kill the cock roach, so injurious to the housewives of ^tropical countries.
The wasp is seen walking or fly-about in various directions, evidently on the look t for game; as soon as it discovers a cock roach it ;remains fixed for a few seconds, during which the two insects seem to eye each other. The wasp then,— pouncing on its prey, seizes it by the muzzle; it then insinuates its body under that of the cock-roach, and "inflicts a wound. As soon as the wasp feels sure that the fatal poison has been introduced into the body of mis«enemy, the insect appears to be aware of its effect, jmd takes a turn or two to give it time to work. Hav-■ing thus departed for a few instants, it returns, and is jiure to find the cock-roach motionless on the spot J^here it had been left. Naturally timid, the cockroach appears to be at this juncture totally incapable bf resistance, and suffers its enemy to seize its head >nd drag it/backwards towards a little hole situate in /the next wjtll. Sometimes the way is long, and then j£he wasp
ecruit its strength, ere it proceeds to finish its task, ometimes it lays down the unresisting cock roach, d makes its way alone to the nest, probably to re opnoitre whether any obstacles impede the way: re-ruing in a few moments, it again lays hold of its
»Fey. M. Cpssigni having, during the absence of the asp, removed the cock roach to a little distance, was ighly amused with the restless embarrassment of this reature when the prey seemed to have been thus natched from its gripe. But the cock roach having een ultimately dragged to the den of the insect, the hardest part of the task was yet to be accomplished; Jbr the aperture by which the wasp could enter was fby no means roomy enough to admit the larger frame A)f the cock-roach ; the insect, however, went in, and applied its utmost force to drag its prey in after. But ffljese efforts were too often quite unsuccessful. The Iffimedy adopted in this dilemma would not have dis-Jgraced a reasonable creature. It quietly lopped oft’ Khe wings and legs of the cock roach, and thus diminished the bulk of the animal, without depriving ^fhe young worm of any part of the fond destined for ijits support.—Afwrrfly’j Family Library,

General Garth.—This officer, whose name has latterly been so often before the public, died on Wednesday, at his house in Grosvenor place, aged eighty-five. The general entered the army on the 12th of August, 1762, in Germany, in the allied army under , the command.of Prince Ferdinand. In 1765 he ob-tcinod « liouterientvy, arid lb 1773 Ire Was appointed captain in his regiment. In 1779 he exchanged into the 20th light dragoons, and went to the West Indies in the intended expedition to the Spanish Main, which failed, having been anticipated by Lieutenant General Sir J. Dalling, lieutenant-governor of Jamaica. In 1792 he returned to this country, and was reduced to half-pay with other officers of the 20th light dragoons. ■In the same year he obtained the majority of the 2d dragoon guards; and in 1794 he was appointed lieutenant colonel of the 1st dragoons, and served in the campaign of that year in Flanders. He was present at the greater part of the actions from the 17th April, 1794, to the close of the campaign. He was next appointed colonel of the Sussex fencibles, and afterwards, on the death of Lord Fielding, to the late 22d light dragoons, raised by Earl Sheffield. On the 7th of January, 1801, be was appointed colonel of his late regiment, the 1st dragoons. He received the rank of major-general January 1, 1798, that of lieutenant-general in 1805, and that of general 4th June, 1814.
Sir Isaac Coffin.—The American brig Clio, fitted out by Admiral Sir Isaac Coffin, Bart., late a Member of the House of Commons, as a floating Marine Academy for the benefit of Yankee boys, is now in Quebec harbours She has on board, besides her crew, 21 young lads from Nantucket, who are educated for the sea at- the Admiral’s expense, and are, it is said, . all of them allied to him tn various degrees of consanguinity, -Or Saturday they visited the citadel and other places which usually attract the attention of strangers. They are dressed in blue uniforms, and their appearance does credit to the kindness of the Baronet. As they paraded the streets they excited much interest, but the question was asked by many, whether the Admiral who, although a native of Massachusetts, has, by election, become a Biitish subject, and in her service has acquired rank, fortune, and title, would not have displayed more judgment and better feeling had he exercised his liberality in that country to which he is wholly indebted for the advantages be enjoys, rather than the land where he accidentally drew his breath, but which has since ceased to be part of the British dominions, and has in fact no claim whatever upon him? It is conjectured by others that Sir Isaac Coffin is an advocate for opening the navigation of the St. Lawrence to the Americans, as proposed by Mr. Consul Buchanan, and that, in anticipation of this plan going into imme iate operation, he has, by way of laying out an anchor to windward, sent his young kinsmen on a cruise to Quebec, that they may be qualified to conduct the comwercia/ ma-rine ’of their country whenever their services may be required as pilots. Of course, a sense of honour would prevent their using the knowledge they may acquire through their uncle, Sir Isaac’s, kindness on board national vessels which might enter these waters for hostile purposes. There are some of the Admiral’s family in the British army, but we have not yet heard that any of them have thought of establishing a Military Academy for instructing their cousins in the art of war, to have contemplated introducing them into the Engineer Department, fur the purpose of making them better acquainted with the works now constructing on Cape Diamond, and in other parts of these provinces. Such a plan would be worthy of the liberality of the present day, and there would be something noble and chivalrous in letting those who may probably hereafter be our antagonists, thoroughly understand the strength of the defences they may be destined, at some future lime, to attack,—Quebec Merewy,
The Schoolboy's Saturday Night.—Cleanliness, saith some sage man, is next to godliness. It may be; but how it came to sit so very near, is the marvel. Methinks some of the more humane virtues might have put in for a place before it. Justice, humanity, temperance, are positive qualities; the courtesies and little civil offices of life, had I been master of the ceremonies to that court, should have sate above the salt in preference to a mere negation. I confess there it something wonderfully refreshing, in warm countries, in the act of ablution. These Mahometan washings, how cool to the imagination ! but in all these superstitions, the action itself, if not the duty, is voluntary. But to be washed per force: to have a detestable flannel rag soaked in hot water, and redolent of the very coarsest coarse soap, ingrained with hard beads for torment, thrust into your mouth, eyes, nostrils_
positively Burking you, under pretence of cleansing —substituting soap for dirt, the worse dirt of the two, making your poor red eyes smart all night, that they might look out brighter on the sabbath morn, for their clearness was the effect of pain more than cleanliness. Could this be true religion ? The tender mercies of the wicked are cruel, I am always disposed to add, so are those of grandmothers. Mine had never-failing pretexts of tormenting children for their good. I was a chit then; and I well remember when a fly had got into a corner of my eye, and I was complaining of it to her, the old lady deliberately pounded two ounces or more of the finest loaf sugar that could be got, and making me hold open my eye as wide as I could —all innocent of her purpose—she blew from delicate white paper, with a full breath, the whole saccharine contents into the part afflicted, saying, “there, now the fly is out.” ’Twas most true; a legion of bluebottles, with the prince of flies at their head, must have dislodged with the torrent and deluge of tears which followed. I kept my own counsel, and my fly in iny eye tvhen I had got one, in future, without troubling her dulect applications for the remedy.—— Flien her medicine case was a perfect magazine of torture for infants. She seemed to have had no notion of the comparatively tender drenches which young, internals require ; her potions were anything but milk for babes. I hen her sewing of a cut finger ; pricking a whitloe before it was ripe, because she could not see well—with the aggravation of the pitying tone she did it in. But of all her nostrums, rest her soul, nothing came up to the Saturday night’s flannel, that rude fragment of a Witney blanket_____
—Wales spins none so coarse—thrust into the corners of a weak child’s eye, with soap that might have • absterged an Ethiop, whitened the hands of Duncans the murderer, and scowered away original sin itself. A faint image of my penance you see in the print;— but the artist has sunk the flannel—the age, I suppose, Js too nice to bear it, and he has faintly shadowed the •pxpostulary suspension of the razor strop in the hand ■of my grandfather, when my pains and clamours had waxed intolerable. Peace to the shades of them toth ! And if their well-meaning souls had need of leansing when they quitted earth, may the process of it have been milder than that of my old purgatorial Saturday night’s bath to the sabbatical rest of the ^norrow !—The Gem.
k Silting for your Bust.—A respected correspondent ^assures us of the truth of the following story:—One 4pf those Italian artists who manufacture and vend Janages, and take busts in gypsum of the living subject, ^balled, not long ago, upon a celebrated member of the ^medical fraternity, and demanded, importunately, to j.be allowed to take a cast from his countenance arid ahead, in order to form from it a bust for sale. Dr.
B-----, who did not much admire the idea of having
^himself exposed thus, although perhaps in the society ■of his patron Esculapius, at first flatly, negatived the Italian’s request; but was at length induced to accede to it, upon the man’s representation of his extreme poverty, and assertions that the being allowed to take the cast of so celebrated a character would undoubtedly “ make his fortune.” So the physician, though jjvith very ill grace, submitted hknself to the artist, desiring him to make haste, or he cduld not sit through. ,£tie operation. The man promised^ produced his materials, and in a few minutes the Doctor presented the appearance of the statue in Don Giovanni—his face, and three-fourths of his head, being enveloped iln a coating of gypsum, which he was informed must partially dry upon him before it was removed. Halfsuffocated, and deprived of the senses of sight and Rearing, it is no wonder that Dr. B.’s impatience at length overcame his politeness. In fact, having in %ain entreated, and at last commanded, the Italian to take off the composition, threatening to tear it from his features if he did not, the Doctor at last actually resorted to the latter mode of relief, when, on beholding the light, what was his horror and astonishment at finding the cunning artist gone,—having previously made part of the “fortune” he had anticipated, in taking a cast of Dr. B., by breaking open his writing d&sk whilst the physician was in a state of temporary •'Jffindness and deafness, and immediately decamping ^Eth the property which it contained.—Court Journal, f Steam Communication. — So great is the facility of Communication between England and the neighbouring coasts of the Continent by means of steam-vessels, trbat a number of articles of a perishable nature are irow imported. For some months past, bread made in France has been brought over and sold at South-ifinpton; and a projector has just formed a baking ffitablisbment on the coast of Holland, the bread from ^hich he calculates may be offered for sale in twenty-, fjtur hours on the banks of tbe Thames. He calculates on realizing a clear profit of twopence on each boaf.
