Some labouring men employed in the service of the Right Hon. Lord Braybrooke, digging gravel on his Lordship's domain, near to the village of Audley End, situate about on*> mile from Saffron Walden, at the depth of fifteen feet from the surface of the ground, discovered an enormous tooth, supposed to be a tusk of the Behemoth, in form much curved, and measuring six feet seven inches in length, and about sixteen inches round at the base, decreasing towards the point to the size of a man's wrist; and as the labourers pursued their work to the distance of only five feet, they found another tusk, nearly of similar shape and dimensions. Much trouble and art has been exercised to obtain and preserve entire these curious relics of the antcdilnvian world; but it is found that the action of atmos

pheric air upon these substances (which mast have been here deposited in the earth upwards of four thousand years) will, to all appearance, produce speedy decomposition. Many pieces of large bones, which no doubt belonged to the same animal, were also dug up, most of which crumblt-d on being removed.

The " Essex Standard " states that "from forty to fifty persons from this vicinity were last week about to take their departure by the William and Mary, from Wivenhoe, on the River Colnc. During the few days that have Bince elapsed, there has been a great accession to these numbers; and we now find that upwards of one hundred persona this day accompany Captain Scott."

»■ KENT.

A proclamation, dated Whitehall, March 2nd, was inserted In "The Police Gazette," stating, that *' Whereas it has been represented to the King that divers large bodies of armed smngglers have lately been feloniously assembled on different parts of the coast in Kent and Sussex, to assist in the lauding of uncustomed and prohibited goods, and violent attacks made upon the officers and men of his Majesty's Coast Guard Service and Custom-house officers, in which attacks several have been killed and wounded ; and whereas it is necessary to pot an end to such outrages, and bring the offenders to justice, his Majesty's pardon will be graciously extended to all persons so assembled (except those who have actually committed violence upon the said officers and men) who shall give information against their accomplices." The following rewards also are offered, viz, *' A reward of 1000*. to any person who shall discover, or cause to be discovered, any person or persona by whose agreement such companies were so illegally assembled in the actual perpetration of any such murders. Of 5001. for the discovery of any person armed with fire-arms, or other offensive weapons, who assembled to the number of three or more, for the purpose of running soch uncustomed and prohibited goods. Of tOOl. to any one who shall discover, or cause to be discovered, any one or more of those concerned in running such goods. The rewards to be paid by the Collector and Comptroller of Customs at the port of Rye, upon the conviction of the offenders."

NORTHUMBERLAND. The general trade of Newcastle has been considerably injured by the last "siick"ofthe pitmen, and by their refusing since to work more than six or seven hours a day. A report of the Committee of the coal-owners has just been published, in which they state, that from these causes, during the past year, 317,510 chaldrons, or 841,425 tons, less of coals have been wrought than would have been if no soch cessation or restriction of labour had taken place. Calculating these coals at 18s. per ton, they amount to the enormous sum of 757,38*2/. Assuming that one-third only of this quantity could have been sold, of which the coal-owners say there can exist no doubt, from the actual vend and the time the ships were kept waiting, the loss to the pitmen themselves, and to others engaged in the general business of the place, appeal's greatly to exceed 250,000/.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE. The tide of emigration from the neighbourhood of Nottingham to the United States has set in very powerfully. Fifteen families, most of them in independent circumstances, will set off in a few days in one body. The freight from Liverpool is Si. per head, exclusive of provisions.

SUSSEX. An affray, attended with fatal consequences, recently took place at Worthing. On certain parties landing, the coast guard pursued them. Lieutenant Henderson, when the retreating parties rushed on him, ordered his men to fire, which tbey had scarcely time to do, before their opponents rushed on them, and laid on them so unmercifully with their bats, that they soon disabled them. Of the smugglers, William Coward

son was found dead on the field, and several men were carried off in a bad state, but not one of the offenders was apprehended. Lieutenant Henderson had his left arm broken in two places, his ear cot open, and bis head and body much bruised, and all the officers were maimed in some way or other, more or lers. An inquest has been held on the body of Cowardson, and a verdict of "Justifiable homicide" returned.

The "Brighton Gazette" states " that another desperate conflict between the smugglers (100 in number) and the Preventive Service bus taken place near Bulverbithe Station. 150 tubs of spirits were landed, but only fifty worked (as tbey term it)— that is, gained. Smuggling has now attained a height that ia really dreadful; the unhappy men engaged in it have resolved to carry fire-arms, and when they cannot get bullets, (as in this case,) they cut up copper coin, and fire; with one such charge tbey killed two brave fellows, and with another so dreadfully wounded the Lieutenant, as to render the amputation of bis arm necessary close to the shoulder. It was grievous to sec the widows and the fatherless children of the slain pass our doors; and we trust Government will either adopt more effective means of preventing these scenes, or at once reduce the duty. They have sent down a troop of the 7th dragoons; and of a night, as we are seated round our domestic hearth,our ears are saluted with the clangour of horses* hoofs, and the swords of the men ringing against the sides of their steeds, as if we dreaded the immediate invasion of a besieging foe." Under the bead "Kent," our readers will find a proclamation on this subject.

WORCESTERSHIRE. We regret to state, that at Kidderminster the carpet trade is much depressed. The number of weavers out of employ is very great; 779 beads of families are receiving parochial relief; in addition to which there are 390 in the poor house and hospital.

YORKSHIRE. Tbe " Courier " states upon the authority of " a gentleman recently returned from Yorkshire and Lancashire, who has a thorough knowledge of the subject, that he never found the manfacturers in such full employment. Wages, however, are much lower than formerly. He says he found the master and men, particularly the journeymen spinners, loud in their complaint against the proposed bill for limiting the hours of labour; they say that very exaggerated statements have been made on the subject; that even now labour la regulated by Act of Parliament, and that spies are continually going round and giving information if the Act is encroached upon. All work is paid by the weight of yarns turned out; that the spinner generally employs a female and two girls, and if the time of attendance of tbe girls was to be shortened two hours, so would be the return of yarns, as their work is requisite for his own; whilst in Lancashire, he heard of a new and simple invention, which has not yet been brought into use, by which one third more yarns would be spun. The process consists in giving to the spiudle an additional velocity. If this invention should be found to answer, It would cause a reduction of a third in the number of spinners, unless there was to be an additional demand of one-third."


In Ireland there has been of late an increase In the number of commitments. The highest rate of crime daring the last year was in the city of Dubtin, where the proportion Whs one to ninety inhabitants. In ihe city of Waterford the proportion was one to 118; in Kilkenny, one to 150; in Umerick, one to ISO; in Cork, one to '200; and in Galway, one to 230. Of the counties, Sligo had the highest proportion of criminals, being one to 240 inhabitants. In Longford, there has been one to '250; in Qoeen's County, one to 290; In Cavan, one to 310; and in Dublin county, one to 356; the lowest proportion of criminals has been in Downshirc, where there was only one to 920 inhabitants. In Cork, which is the most populous county, the proportion was one to TOO. The total number of persons convicted of criminal offences in Ireland was 9002, being about fiveeighths of the number committed. But of ibis large number of convictions, only 202, or one in 38, were sentenced to death ; of these, 95 were for offences against the person; 32 of whom were

executed. The total number of capital punish, meats amounted to 30.

The Archbishop of Dublin has endowed a Professorship of Political Economy in that University. Graduates of Oxford, Cambridge, or Dublin, are eligible to this chair.


A correspondent informs us, that the harbour of Swansea is about to undergo an improvement of an important nature, which will enable it to receive vessels of all classes and dimensions. Confined, as it is at present, to the purposes of small coasting-vessels, it would afford no ontlet or place for the shipment of the produce of the immense coal district in the neighbonrhooil. The plan is to deepen the channels leading to if, and also ihe harbour; for which purposes a bill will be applied for in Parliament during the present session. Among the immediate advantages with which it will be attended, is employment to a large body of workmen—a point of no small importance in a country becoming populous like that of Swansea.

It seems to be generally expected that the next accounts of the quarter's revenue will exhibit a considerable decrease in the department ol Customs. The quarantine regulations relative to Cholera are, of course, the principal cause lo which this anticipated deficiency is ascribed; bat a diminution 1n the general spirit of Commercial enterprise, arising from the yet prevailing uncertainty regarding Ibe fate of the Reform bill, has in no small decree contributed to the decline.

The demand for cotton at Liverpool, notwithstanding the unfavourable aspect of things, has continued more than usually brisk since the date of our last report. The reported sale* during the four weeks from that period, have averaged 13,000 bales per week. A good deal of the business done, however, has been on speculation, and a part for exportation. On the 9th the stock of cotton at Liverpool was 101,090 bales, of which 103,706 uplands; at the same period last year, it was of 227,120 bales, of which 138,800 uplands. Iu the Metropolitan Cotton Market, business has not been very brisk, and the sales have averaged at 4,000 bales per week.

The Colonial Markets have received an extraordinary stimulus in consequence of the bad pro* sped of the West Indian affairs. Plantation Sugar has been a great deal iu request at high prices, and business in it considerable. West India Coffee has also met with much demand, at increased prices, and the sale* io all descriptions and qualities have been large. Fast India Sugar and Coffee have been proportion ably neglected. In the Indigo market, no business of any importance has been done. It is now fully ascertained that the next crop of Indigo will be an average one.

The state of oar commercial relations with the different parts of the world, does not appear, from all the accounts received during the mouth, quite as favourable as previously. Large stocks of British manufactures remained on hand, in Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, and Buenos Ay res, and there was no immediate prospect of their disposal. The scarcity of money prevailing in all the parts of America which we have mentioned, was the principal cause of the difficulty io disposing of our produce; most of the markets, however, bad, as usual, been over-supplied with British goods. With the Mediterranean our trade has not been either brisk or favourable during the past mouth. In Turkey the exchange on England continues increasing; but the local wants do not augment in proportion, so that British goods In any quantity remain unsaleable without loss. If things go on at the same rate much longer, It will be difficult to sell a bale of English manufactures in Turkey without incurring loss. Shipments for that part of the world, therefore, diminish every month.

The Shipping interest appear to have more immediately felt the effects of the Quarantine regulations every where Instituted against us. A great

number of vessels taking in goods for different parts have been obliged to unload, while others many weeks advertised for sailing, cannot obtain a bale of goods.

There has been a gradual increase in the prices of British Funds since our last report, but up to the present moment it has not amounted to more than one per cent. Business, upon the whole, has been extremely limited, and Consols, which we left at about 8-2 three-eighths to half, have, iu the absence of all exciting or depressing causes, slowly riseu to 88 three eighths io half for the account, which is the closing quotation on the 24th, as will be seen by ibe list below.

The go.»d folks of the Stock Exchange were lately suddenly awoke from the quiet slumbers tbey had been for some time et.joying by an incident of an importance which, to them, appeared calculated to absorb the attention of all Europe at least. It was something about a charge of double commission in a sale of stock; ami the Committee of " the House" sal many a laborious day to investigate this highly interesting matter. Like the mountain in labour, however, it finally brouzht forth a decision, which has disappointed all the expectations that the Committee's high lone had rahed; and Europe, we fear, has been diverted from her ordinary pursuits to no good purpose at all.

Money has not been scarce in the City, and good bills were easily discountable at three and a half per cent.

In the Foreign Funds nothing tins occurred worth attention, besides the fact that the prices of the best securities are generally higher than when our last report was made.
