to complete the -works, and It is expected that rapid progress will be made with them daring the spring.

NORTHUMBERLAND. The pitmen in several parts of Northumberland and Durham are still iu a very unsettled stale, and the coal owners are placed in a state of dependence upon tbeir caprice. Daring the month a disturbance broke out at Waldridge colliery, and the military were called out to quell it, but the pitmen, on tbeir approach, disappeared. Lead miners bave been brought to work at this colliery iu the place of the refractory pitmen, and the military are now stationed in the neighbourhood to protect them. The conduct of the pitmen is severely condemned; for it appears that the price fixed upon by their own viewer, and the viewer of the coal owners, is snch as to enable them, by working a reasonable number of hours per day, to earn from 20s. to 30s. per week.


The Special Commission has been concluded. George Beck, George Hearson, John Armstrong, Thomas Shelton, William Kitchen, and David Thurman, were placed at the bar. These prisoners had been convicted of unlawfully destroyin; a mill at Beesion. Charles Berkins, Valentine Marshall, and Thomas Whitlaker, who stood convicted of having maliciously set fire to the boo?e of John Musters, Esq. were also placed at the bar. The Learned Jodge intimatedth.it the lives of Kitchen, Thurman, Marshall, and Whittaker, would be spared. Hib Lordship then proceeded to pass the awful sentence of Death on Beck, Hearson, Armstrong, Shelton, and Berkins.

SUSSEX. It ii painful to reflect, says "The Brighton Herald," that tbe terrible examples made of persons convicted of the dreadful crime of arson, appears to have little or no effect in checking the progress of incendiarism. Even while the Assises were holding at Lewes, property to the amount of 3000/. was consumed only a few miles distance. The Maidstone paper adds, "that on Thursday evening a fire took place at Ulcomb, near that town, which destroyed a large barn containing 170 quarters of agricultural produce. Tbe execution of a man named Dixon took place on the same day, and within a few miles of the spot, which shows what little dread the labourers have of capital punishment."


A meeting of tbe subscribers to the Birmingham and Liverpool Railway Company li,i- taken place at Birmingham, and the meeting, acting upon ihe previous resolutions of ihe Liverpool and Birmingham Company, decided that the Companies should be consolidated under the title of "The Grand Junction Railway Company," giving an option to potties who are not disposed to continue in the consolidated Company of retiring, on receiving a dividend of the funds in band. Frem the Report of the Committee, read at the meeting, we collected, that an alteration of the line, as submitted to Parliament in the last session, has been decided upon, and th.it the Railway to be executed by the consolidated Company will pass from Birmiugbaui up the valley of the Tame, thence along

the old line to Preston Brook, and terminating at Warrington, there uniting with the Warrington and Newton Railway, and entering the Liverpool and Manchester line about half way between the last-named places. This arrangement, independent of the vast saving which will arise in the amount of capital required, was pointed out in the report as likely to be very advantageous to the proprietary, as it will afford a road to Manchester equally good with the one to Liverpool, which a direct line to Liverpool could not have done; and as railways are projected and in execution from Manchester into Yorkshire, it is obvious it opens the projected line to the immense trade and transit of that district.


We are happy to find that rather an extensive system of educating the children of the poor has been fur a considerable time acted upon in some of our priucipal manufactories. Amongst others, we learn that there are 120 boys and 70 girls receiving education as day scholars in school-rooms built for tbe purpose in the manufactory of Messrs. Marshall and Co., of Leeds, and that at so moderate an expense to the parents of Ihe children as to be piid with the greatest cheerfolness. Another new school-room, attached to this establishment, is now fitting up, by which the number of scholars will be considerably increased, and their classification improved. There has also been a school for t considerable time, under excellent arrangement, in the manufactory of Messrs. Hirst, Bramlcy, and Co. iu School Close, and in the mill of Messrs. Hindes and Derham, in Dockstreet; the children employed in the manufactory arc allowed slated intervals, both morning and afternoon, to receive instruction in reading, from a master engaged by the firm, who attends the whole day for that purpose. These are examples that are well worth imitating, and we should be glad to hear that the system of edocating tbe factory children was in general operation in all tbe mills of the West Riding, ll is alike honourable to the masters and advantageous to the scholars. It has long been a complaint, and not without foundation, that the children in manufactories had no time, except on the Sunday, to receive instruction in the first elements of learning; but by the above means, this objection will be removed, and the moral habits of the children will be improved.


According to a statement drawn op by Dr. Cleland, the burials in Glasgow in 1831 were 0547, being no less than 130*2 more than took place in 1830. The marriages have decreased 52.

The Cholera arrived at North Shields by three different routes. On the 10th of December from Sunderland, on the 21st from Hartley, aud on the 27th from Newcastle. This pestilence, whose slow progress is one of its most remarkable phenomena, lias now reached Haddington and Tranent in the north, and Durham to the south. We cannot impress too strongly upon tbe local Boards of Health the necessity of providing hospitals for the reception of Cholera patients. It affords us much satisfaction lo observe the arrangements which have been made in Edinburgh lor the scientific investigation of the disease.


The stale of trade during the year just ended his proved much more favourable than had been generally expected. The offici.il returns show a considerable Increase both in imports and exports. The total valne of exports in British manufactures and produce, in the last year, is estimated at 01,140,0001. while in 1830 it was estimated at 56,200,000/. and in 1829 at 52,797/. The value of goods imported in 1831 is calculated at 46,245,0007. While in 1630 ft was 43,0X0,000/. In the exportslions of foreign and colonial merchandise from this country, there has been a falling off of from 10,600,000/. in 1830, to 8,690,000/. in 1831. The principal increase in the exporutions of British manufactured goods has been in cotton stud's, the declared official valne of the shipments of which, in 1831, is calculated at 35,800,000/. while in 1830 it was but 32,160,000/. and in 1829, only 29,312,000/. In Cotton yarn the Increase in exports has been from 4,500,000/. in 1829, to 5,650,000/. in 1831. In woollen manufactures there has been a considerable increase also. In 1830 the declared official value of what was exported was 5,372,000/.; in 1831 it was 5,559,000/. A gradual decrease teems to be taking place in the export of machinery. The declared official value of machinery and mill work exported in 1829 was 20.!.(M»i/. and last year only 208,0007. In brass and copper manufactures the increase in the exports has been from 675,000/. in 1829, to 998,000/. in 1831. In linen manufactures the increase has been from 3,000,0007. in 1830, to 3,266,000/. in 1831. ,

As far as the latest commercial accounts from different parts of the Continent enable us tojudge, the stocks of cotton-wool, in the whole of Europe, are moderate, when compared with the rate of consumption. A large portion of them are held in Liverpool. The spinners and dealers in Great Britain, with but few exceptions, hold less than their ordinary stocks. There is reason to believe, from all accounts from the United States, that the cotton crops will be less productive this year than in the last, bat probably not materially different. From the Braxih, Egypt, the East and West Indies, it is assumed that the imports during this year will not vary much in amount from what they were in 1831. The extent of the consumption of Cotton, during the present year, must, of course, be greatly influenced by the degree of tranquillity and confidence which may exist in this country, and caution will most likely continue to be exercised until the great political question which now agitates the public mind is finally settled. The sales of Cotton in Liverpool, from the 25th of December to the 22nd of January, have amounted to about 74,000 bags. In the Metropolitan Market, during the four weeks embraced in the same period, about 5000 bags have been sold.

In the article of Indigo, the imports in 1831 have been smaller than for several years past. Into London, 21,700 chests and 1550 serons hive been received. In the preceding year the imports were of 31,000 chests and 1000 serons; and in 1829 of 21,500 chests and 4500 serons. The deliveries for home use have been 8200 chests and 720 serous in 1831; in the preceding year they amounted to 8000 chests and 1050 serons; and in

1829 to 8550 chests and 1400 serons. The exports during the last year have been of 16,650 chests and 740 serons; in 1330 they were of 17,480 chests, 2300 serons; and in 1829, of 15,500 chests and 2300 serons; leaving the stocks at 36,050 chests and 2240 serons, against 37,500 chests and 1720 serons at the close of 1830, and 30,500 chests and 2940 serons at the close or 1829. According to advices from Calcutta of the 12th of August, this year's crop of Indigo will fall a little short of the last, which was of 118,000 maunds; but this will occasion no loss, as the previous crop was greater than the estimated consumption.

Our commercial relations abroad have, upon the whole, undergone some improvement during the year which has just ended, as may be inferred from the preceding remarks. With Germany we are precisely on the same footing as before. In Russia heavy duties have, as stated in our last report, been imposed upon British productions, but it is hereafter that we shall have to feel the effects of thern. With the Mediterranean, things remain generally in the same state; but some improvement in our favour is promised by the efforts that the Turkish Sultan is making to re-organise his long-tottering empire. So soon as he can adopt a fixed snd invariable system of finance, the commercial interests, both of his own subjects and of strangers, cannot fail to undergo amelioration. Turkey possesses great resources within herself; it was only through bad government thai they have so long been stopped up. In our trade with the United States of America, no alteration whatever has taken place; and in those parts of the American continent, formerly the colonies of Spain, as well as in Brazil, the unsettled state of politics has continued to afford but little security to our commercial operations. Nevertheless the spirit of enterprise has not lain dormant, particularly in regard to Mexico and Ur.i7.il, for which coantrjea large shipments have been made from hence.

Prom Mexico, almost every packet which has arrived In 1831, has brought specie applicable to the payment of the dividends on the loan, so long previously due. The arrears are, therefore, by this time pretty nearly settled.

The transactions which have occurred at the Stock Exchange since our last report, have chiefly been of a speculative kind. Investments were more rare than at any other corresponding period of 1831. The speculations in Consols for the Account were chiefly for the rise, so that on the 19th, the day of settlement, it proved a Bull account. The rise, however, has not exceeded 2 per cent., and from the 24th of December lo the 24th of January, the fluctuations were comparatively trifling. The average price of Consols has been 82. On the 24ih it rose to 82 half, fiveeighths, which was the best start that it took during the period in question.

Hardly any business has been done in foreign funds, and their prices have, for the greater part, been merely nominal.

Money has been generally abundant in the City, especially since the payment of the dividends, and good bills were easily discountable at 3 per cent.

Prom a notice, published officially on the 10th of January, in the manner prescribed by the Act of Parliament, for regulating the expenditure for Ibe reduction of the National Debt, it appears that there is no longer any fund disposable for that purpose. 'The expenditure having exceeded the revenue for the year ended ihe 5th of October 1831, by the sum of 20,5377. I8s. lid., the Commissioners have declared that no turn will be applied by them on account of the Sinking Fund, as otherwise bound by the Act of Parliament, between the 5tb of January and the 5th of April 1332.

The following Proclamation for a General Fast has been issued by the Kino in Council.


« WILLIAM R. "Wl, taking into our most serious consideration the dangers with which this country is threatened by the progress of a serious disease heretofore unknown in these Islands, have resolved, and do, by and with the advice of our Privy Council, hereby command, that a poblic day of fasting and humiliation be observed throughout those parts of the United Kingdom called England and Ireland, on Wednesday, the twenty-first day of March next ensuing; that so both we and our people may humble ourselves before Almighty God, in order to obtain pardon for onr sins, and in the most devout and solemn manner send up onr prayers and supplications to the Divine Majesty for averting those heavy judgments which our manifold provocations have most justly deserved; and particularly for beseeching God to remove from os that grievous disease, with which several places in the kingdom are at this time visited. And we do strictly charge and command that the said Public Fast be reverently and devoutly ob. March. Vol. Xxxvi. No. Cxxxv.

served by all our loving subjects in England and Ireland, as tbey tender the favour of Almighty God, and wonld avoid his wrath and indignation, upon pain of such punishment as may be justly inflicted on all such as contemn and neglect the performance of so religious and necessary a duty. And for the better and more orderly solemnizing the same. We have given directions to the most Reverend the Archbishops, and the Right Reverend the Bishops of England and Ireland, to compose a Form of Prayer suitable on this occasion, to be used in all Churches, Chapels, and Places of Public Worship, and to take care that the same be timely dispersed throughout their respective dioceses.

"Given at our Court at St. James's, the sixth day of February, 1632, and In the Second Year of our Reign.


A second Proclamation enjoins the observance of the Fast in Scotland on Thursday the twenty-second of March.

The Gazette of February 10th contained an order from his Majesty in Council, direct
