BERKSHIRE. The new bridge at Staines has been opened in the presence of their Majesties, and a large party of the nobility and gentry of the county. The bridge was commenced in the spring of 1829, and tbe first stone was laid on the 14th of Sep. tember following by their present Majesties, then Duke and Ducbess of Clarence. The works were completed under the direction of Mr. George Rennie, architect, and Messrs. Joliffe and Banks, the contractors. The cost of the bridge and approaches was about 41,0001. It consists of three segmental arches, the middle 74 feet in span, and the two side arches 66 feet span each. These arches, for flatness of the segment and dimensions of the piers, they being only nine feet in thickness, are perlaps unique in this country, or, in. deed, if the bridge at Florence be excepted, on the Continent. Two superb triumphal arches, decorated with laurel and appropriate emblems, were placed at either extremity of the bridge, upon which a large concourse of well-dressed people were admitted by tickets.

DEVONSHIRE. Accounts from Sidmouth state that the mackerel fishery is now very brisk: more than 50,000 fish have been taken in the seans during the week previous to the 19th.-a circumstance worthy of

a circunstance worthy of record. from their not usually appearing at this early season. In one of the nets, a fine specimen of the Monk-fish (Squatina vulgaris, Fleming,) was caught. When first seized, about a dozen and a half of mackerel were found in its mouth, which is of the following enormous dimensions : width, 1 foot 7 inches; greatest expansion, I foot 1 inch ; its length was 5 feet 7 inches; and the capacity of its stomacb, which occupied the whole of the epigastric region, an Imperial gallon and a half. The heart and circulatory organ were very small, while the nerves were extensively distributed and beautifully distinct.

HERTFORDSHIRE. Some time since part of the south wall of the great nave of St. Alban's Abbey fell in opon the roof of the side aisle, through which it broke. The parochial authorities immediately called in the assistance of a competent architect, and con vened a meeting of the parish, by which the architect was directed to make a report of the repairs necessary for the preservation of the fabric,

preservation of the fabric, and the estimated expense. The report has been made, and the expense calculated at 14,0001. The abbey is but a parish church, for which purpose a very small part of it is only used, and the funds of the parish are wholly inadequate to uphold so vast an edifice; the parishioners have therefore de. termined to appeal to the liberality of the nation, to preserve from ruin this venerable edifice, 80 Interesting to every lover of the history and an. tiquities of this country.

100 The Dean and Chapter of Bristol bave commenced the renovation of that fine specimen of ancient architecture, the Chapter-room of the Cathedral. In removing the earth for the purpose of lowering the floor, four sand-stone coffins have been uncovered. One of them contained nearly a perfect skeleton, and on the skull there evidently an evidently appeared the remains of a fillet of gold lace. The lid of one of the coffins exhibits a sculptured representation in basso relievo of Christ's descent into hell. In one hand he bears the cross, and with the other he is delivering a sinner from the jaws of the bottomless pit. The sinner from figure of Christ occupies nearly the whole length of the lid.

IRELAND, There are twenty-one stipendiary magistrates in Ireland, having salaries varying from 6461. a year, and 1841. for rent and forage, to 3841, a year, and an allowance of 1001. a year for rent and forage.

The Irish papers continue to afford a black ca. talogue of murders and other outrages committed in various parts of that unhappy country. An address bas issued from the National Political Union, under the sanction of Mr. O'Connell, calling for a Union of all parties to repress the savage disorders w disorders wbich still prevail.

“ The Dublin Evening Post" says:"No language can give an adequate idea of the frightful state of lawless insubordination which prevails at the present moment throughout several districts of Ireland. The county of Kilkenny is in a state of open rebellion; the gentry prisoners in their own houses, and no protection whatever afforded for life or property. And yet Government asserts, and we are convinced Lord Anglesea believes, that the country is in a state of peace and quiet."

(The Provincial papers dnring this month have been almost filled with accounts of meetings to petition for Reform &c. They bave been conse. quently almost barren of local intelligence.
