ministrations were still remembered with affectionate regard. He had gone for the benefit of change of air, to reside in the neighbourhood of Stirling, having hut a few weeks ago preached his last sermon, in his usual health and spirits, at his former charge, Gargunnock.


On the 18th September, the Right Hon. Richard Ryder, at Westbrook Hay, Herts, aged 07- He started in life as the participator of the opinions of his elder brother, the Earl of Harrowby, and, under the Administration of Mr. Perceval, was appointed to the high office of Secretary of State for the Home Department, which he resigned in 1809, when he was replaced by Viscount Sidmouth. Air. Ryder, on the nomination of the Liverpool Ministry, was re-appointed a Lord of the Treasury, having accepted that office in 1807, on the accession of the Duke of Portland to the premiership. He was succeeded at the Treasury in 1814, by Earl Bathurst, but did not finally retire from public life until the election of 1831, when he withdrew from the representation of Tiverton, for which borough he was returned to nine Parliaments, as the nominee of Lord Harrowby. In the last return of the civil and military offices, there was no detailed account of the Ecclesiastical Courts, consequently the emoluments of the Registrarship of the Consistory Court do not appear in that document, but it is supposed to be worth many thousands per annum. The Right Hon. Gentleman has left an only daughter by his marriage with a daughter of Sir John Skynner. Mrs. Ryder died in 1821.


On the 10th September, died at the Vicarage, Llangollen, where he was on a visit to his niece, Mrs. Eyton, FieldMarshal Sir Alured Clarke, G.C.B. aged 87. He entered the army as an ensign seventy-three years ago, in 1792; and after passing through the subordinate ranks, he was appointed to the Lieutenant-Colonelcy of the 7th Foot, 1777- He was advanced to the rank of Major-General 1790, Lieuteuant-General 1797, Colonel

of the 7th Fusileers 1801, General 29th April, 1802, Field-Marshal 21st August, 1830. The services of Sir Alured were not remarkable for their brilliancy. He served in the East Indies, where he was invested with the command of the army that captured, under the orders of General Craig, the Cape of Good Hope. Sir Alured arrived only during the unexpected struggle with the Dutch. The Colonelcy of the 7th Fusileers, and the insignia of a G.C.B. have fallen vacant by his death.


The late Mr. Calvert, IIP. was Representative of the Borough of Southwark twenty years, having been first returned at the General Election in 1812. The lamented gentleman's election was opposed in 1818, 1826, and 1830. On the last occasion it will be recollected he was defeated by the late Mr. Harris, on whi^e dissolution a few weeks subsequent to his return, Mr. Calvert was again selected by the electors for their representative. Mr. Calvert was about sixty years of age, and by his lady, a daughter of Sir William Rowley, he has left an infant family of four children. At the period of his union with Miss Rowley, there was a singular disparity in their ages, the Honourable Member having attained his fiftieth year, and the lady having just entered her twenty-first. He died of cholera, at the seat of his brother-in-law, Easton Hall, Saxmundham, Essex. Mr. Calvert was the gentleman who presided at a late meeting of Market Gardeners, and was at the time in robust health. On that occasion the interdict of the use of vegetables and fruits by the faculty, having been adverted to, Mr. Calvert said, " I have not al>stained from eating vegetables and fruits —the former boiled, and the latter ripe— and I have experienced no ill effects from the indulgence, as my appearance will testify." This declaration and remark, coupled with Mr. Calvert's florid complexion and high health, elicited considerable applause, and was deemed by all who heard him, as decisive of the non-injurious effects resulting from the consumption of vegetables and fruits.


Increaie of Crime in the Metropolit.— At the late London Sessions, the Recorder, in the course of his address to the Grand Jury, observed, that " he was sorry to say he could hold out no prospect of an early termination of their labours. It was a melancholy circumstance that, in less than two months, the commitments on the London side amounted to 89, a greater number than he ever recollected to have appeared in the calendar during the many years he had sat in this Court, excepting the riots of 1780."

The registrations for the city of London, under the Reform Act, amount to 10,842 electors for the city, and 384 for the county; Westminster, 10,103, and 746; Marylebone, 6501, and 277; Finsbury, 10,378, and 1024.

Reform Almt-Houtet—A meeting has taken place at the London Tavern, the Lord Mayor in the chair, for the purpose of adopting resolutions for the erection of Alms-Houses for decayed citizen householders, instead of illumination. The principal supporters of the proposed erection were, Mr. W. Weston, Mr. Wade (of the Birmingham Political Union), Mr. Deputy Blacket, Mr. J. Poole (of St. Edmund Hall, Oxford), Mr. R. Taylor, Mr. Mansell (a Barrister), and Air. Slumbridge, all of whom advocated the cause with considerable force and ability. The latter gentleman, who was one of the original proposers, hoped that the Corporation would vote 6000/. towards this noble purpose. Other Corporations would, no doubt, follow the example. Mr. Shoobridge concluded by stating, that he would recommend that every contributor of 100/. towards the object should be entitled for his life to nominate an occupant for one house. The Corporation, if they gave 6000/., would thus have the satisfaction of nominating sixty. Mr. Wade observed that the Metropolis already possessed monuments to the memory of many great men, but the Alms-houses would constitute a monument to perpetuate the triumph of the principle of liberty, of which the nation might justly feel proud.—Resolutions in furtherance of the objects of the meeting were all unanimously agreed to, a Committee nominated, and the subscriptions were immediately commenced.

Public Statue of Jamet Watt.—The statue of James Watt, from the chisel of the eminent sculptor Chantry, has just been erected in the chapel of St. Paul, in

Westminster A bbey. Mr. Watt is represented seated, his left hand holdinga paper, on which he has traced the parallel motion of the steam-engine; and the thoughtful expression of the countenance corresponds with the importance of the principle which his genius had developed and applied. The drapery (the gown of a master of arts) is simple and flowing; and the statue, considered as a work of art, from its perfect ease, intellectual expression, and accurate resemblance to the original, may fairly claim a place among the most celebrated sculptured portraits of ancient or modern times.

Lace makers and Straw-plat Workers.—The poor struw-plat workers in Dunstable, and the surrounding villages, arc In the moat dreadful ■tate of misery, destitution, and want. The very same straw-plat for which they were paid, a few years since, half-a-crown a score, they can mow only get sevenpenee halfpenny a score for— barely sufficient to keep the poor creatures from actual starvation; and those who get this reninDeration for their labour, are what arc called "tip-top workers.** Inferior workers can, with difficulty, get three halfpence the score. Straw bonnets, which some time ago would have fetched from 10*. to 12s., may now be procured for 3*. The manufacture of an article of lace, made by machinery (principally in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire), called bobbin-net, has experienced a still greater depreciation in value. The yard-wide bobbin-net, which- about ten years ago met with a ready sale at sixty shillings per yard, is now retailed at sixteen-pence I The quilling-net, which at the same time sold for two shillings and sixpence a yard, is now selling at three-halfpence 1 Several hundreds of thousands of pounds' worth of this article used to be exported to the continent, especially to France and to America; hut the export trade is now entirely ruined—France and America not only being in the possession of English machinery, but English workmen, who are enabled not only to compete, successfully, with English-made goods, but to undersell us in foreign markets from fifteen to twenty per cent. The manufacture of thread or pillow-lace, in the counties of Buckingham, Bedford, and Northampton, is in the same depressed and deplorable state. The miserable workers, after labouring sixteen hours a day, cannot earn mure than from Is. Qd. to 2*. per week 1 In the very best of times these poor creatures could not earn more than from bs.to 10*. a weekj hut their present distressed and pauperised situation is truly piteous.

There is now, we have reason to believe, a prospect of the disputes between the coalowners and the pitmen being brought to an end. About a hundred of Lord Durham's men, we are informed, have refused to contribute six shillings in the pound out of their earnings to maintain the unemployed workmen in idleness. We trust that many more will have the good sense to follow their example.

Mortality in Manchester,—A curious paper has Just been printed by order of the House of Com. mons i It isa return of the number of burials ia Manchester from 1831 to 1830, specifying the number in each year, and the ages of those buried. The greatest number of deaths each year Is found to be of those under one, which has varied from 371, the number in 1821, to 2-10, the lowest number, in 1826; the last year of the return, 1830, gives 368. There are some of what would be called remarkable coincidences: thus, for instance. In 1825 and 1626 the number of deaths between one and two years is in each 137; In 1824, 1625, and 1826 exactly twenty-four died In their fifth year; in 1823-4-5, the number of deaths in their eighth year was seven each. The smallest average on the ten years of deaths is at the age of 13, being fifty-four for the whole ten years, not an average of five and a half each. In 1822, of this age only two died; and in 1830, only one j the highest number was, In 1824, ten. The next most healthy age, Judging from these tables, is 12; the whole fur the ten years of that age being 57; and 11, whole number 59; the number of deaths at 3D Is, for the ten years, 69, not quite seven annually. The same average, 7 and 2-lOths (72 for the ten years) is afforded by the ages of S, 41, and 51. It is not until the age of 86 thot any blank occurs in the number, and that is in the year 1822; of 90 there died in the ten years 19; of 91, »; of 92,7; of 03, 9; of 94, only 2, both in 1827; of 95, 2; of 96. 2; Of 97, 4; of 98, not one; of 99.2, one In 1922, the other in 1830; of 100, 2, in 1828 and 1829; of 101, also 2, in 1821 and 1830; of 102, 1, In 1822, of 103,1, In 1821. The register of Dissenters' burials does notglve their ages; the number varies from 1726 In 1821, to 4383 in 1830; If we are to judge from this increase In the number of burials, of that of the Dissenters themselves, they must have Increased in the ten years about 154 per cent. The whole number of deaths has varied from 3287 in 1821 to 5937 in 1830, and the number In the ten years has been, of all ages, 48,138, an average of 4813 and four-fifths.
