PROVINCIAL OCCURRENCES IN THE COUNTIES OF ENGLAND, AND IN WALES, SCOTLAND,

AND IRELAND.

BEDFORDSHIRE. Some highly praiseworthy steps have been taken by the farmers and landlords of the village of Risely, in this county, towards effecting a per. manent improvement in the condition of the labouring population of that place. Each farmer underlets a certain number of acres (in fixed proportion to the quantity he may rent or otherwise hold) at the rate per acre which he pays for the whole. Another part of the plan is a club, by which small loans are made for the payment of seed, and repayable out of the sale or produce of the crops. The scheine has hitherto been attend ed with the most beneficial resolts. While it has greatly benefited the better sort of labourers, who were the first to avail themselves of the advan. tages which it offered, it has occasioned vacancies for the employment of many who had bitherto been uneinployed, and from their inaptness to work had been considered as the refuse of the parish. Stimulated by the comforts possessed by their neighbours, and by the conviction that industry alone was wanting to place them in the saine scale of respectability and comparative prosperity, the idle, the poacher, and those who had been nseless to themselves, and burthensome to the parish, are now become valuable members of society.

CUMBERLAND. “ The Carlisle Journal” gives a most afflicting account of the state of the poor in that city. It says :-"Here we have within a fraction of 2000 persons (nearly one-ninth part of the entire population of the city), the greater portion of whom, be it remembered, are in employment-dragging on a miserable existence upon a sum amounting on the average to less than 18. each per week, that is to say, on less than 2d. a.day. This sum inclades not only the earnings of the poor people them selves, but the amount of parish relief given to them. In one district there are living 024 indi. viduals, whose average weekly income amounts to less than 10d. each! Out of this pittance they have to pay for house-rent, for coals, candles, and clothing. But what do we say? How can soch things be bought with such sums! When some slight deduction is made for such things, how, in the name of God, is life to be preserved by the remainder? To des Tibe the condition in which their dwellings were found far surpasses the powers of our pen. Want of health prevented us from personally visiting these abodes of misery; but persons engaged in the heart-rending task assore us (and we can rely npon their statements) that the appearance and condition of the people were beyond all conceptions which they had formell of the degree of suffering to which huinanity may be reduced, in a civilised country, by poverty. Their wretched dwellings were, in many instances, almost entirely destitute of furniture of an: kind; others were withont fires; and several had not a bed, nor the semblance of a bed, to lie down upon."

DEVONSHIRE.
The Tunnel between Cbarimooth and Axminster

has been opened. This improvement is substan. tially constructed with an elliptic arch, capable of allowing two stage waggons, of the largest size, to pass on it, and is rather more than seventy yards in length. By the completion of this Tunnel, the longest and steepest bill between London and Exeter will be avoided.

DURHAM. The Cholera has terminated at Sunderland. A letter from Mr. Stephenson, Secretary of the Board of Health, says-" It is with unfeigned satisfaction I now transmit to you, by the direction of the Board, the enclosed return, and whicb will convey to the Central Board intelligence of the gratifying fact that these towns are now wholly free from the disease which bas so long unhappily prevailed amongst us. I am directed to add, that in consequence of this most favourable change in the state of the public health, the Board have determined to discontinue their daily sittings, and to meet only twice in the week, unless any particular circumstance should arise to require their attendance more frequently." This communication bears date the 8th instant, and is officially addressed to the Council Office, Whitehall.

6,067 From the report of the Liverpool District Provident Society, it appears that from its commencement in 1830, the receipts, by subscription, &c. were about 18931.; the disbursements in the saine time were only 7971. During this time they relieved 3897 persons with 17,590 quarts of sonp, 4320 loaves, and 257 cwt. of coals. The cost of all this relief was 1861. 6s. 9 d. Relief is never offered in money, nor at any time without the applicant being visited by the visitor of the district.
