laity to afford any reasonable ground of hope for such a desirable conclusion; there is more danger of evil communications corrupting good man ners than being amended by them.

Mr. Peel has brought a bill into the House for regulating the police of the metropolis and the adjacent parts, to be extended at the option of his Majesty in council to any additional parishes within twelve miles of Charing Cross. The principal regulations enact, that the Secretary of State shall have the appointment of the officers of the police establishment, their rewards and salaries. Neither of the justices, of whom there are three, can have seats in Parliament, nor can any of the policemen vote at the elections for those counties, a district of which is subject to the regulations of the bill. A new watch is to be appointed by the Secretary, and to be under his control; and the existing watch-rate will then cease. The overseers of parishes are to levy a police-rate, not to exceed sixpence in the pound; but in case of their default, the Secretary is to appoint collectors: and if dissatisfied with existing valuations, he may appoint assessors, to make new arrangements. on public notice being given of such intention. The general plan of the bill is to take away the appointments and influence exercised by corporations and justices, and vest them in Government.

It is the intention of Government shortly to bring forward a bill to compel half-pay officers and other statepensioners to reside in Great Britain, or be subjected to a heavy tax. · A lamentable deficiency appears in the public revenue for the last quarter. There is a decrease upon every head except the taxes, amounting in the whole to upwards of 500,000). This may in a great measure be attributed to the very low ebb to which some of our manufactures are reduced, particularly the silk trade. Owing to the great improvements in mechanism, a larger quantity of goods can be manufactured in less time and with the employment of fewer hands; and these alterations continually progress

ing, the consequence is, that the markets are all overstocked, and any foreign country which might be in want could not take off more than a month's work would supply. In addition to this, the removal of the duty from foreign silks has occasioned a great influx of French goods, chiefly gauzes and those light articles, which, being quicker work, are the most profitable to the artisan. The labourers in this branch of our manufactures are in the deepest distress. Of about 13,000 persons in Spitalfields, usually employed in weaving, 10,000 are at present out of work, and the trade is equally dull in other parts of the kingdom where it is carried on. In a debate on this subject in the House of Commons, Mr. Vesey Fitzgerald announced that it was not the intention of Government to depart from the principles they have laid down for the encouragement of free trade; and therefore no expedient could be devised which could effectually relieve the present stagnation: they must patiently wait for the development of the means now in practice for the extension of our commerce.

The accounts from the agricultural districts are highly satisfactory, both as to the state of the land and the forwardness of the various agricultural operations. The dry weather, which continued through the whole of March, was peculiarly favourable for the seed time, though not, of course, without some alloy. The long prevalence of easterly winds proved detrimental to vegetation in bleak and exposed situations; but, excepting in some few breadths of wheat which, having perished, the ground has been broken up and resown with other crops, no material injury has been sustained ; and the genial showers which fell in April have had the effect of exciting to the full that fertility of which our poorest soils are susceptible. The seasonableness of the weather in both months give us every reason to hope that we shall have a good harvest, and that to the misery of a depressed state of trade the evils attendant on a scarcity of provisions may not be added.
