As a Judge, Lord Avonmore had one great fault ; he was apt to take a first impression of a cause, and it was very dieffiult afterwardsto obliterate it. The advocate, therefore, had not only to struggle against the real obstacle pre sented to hiip by the case itself, but also the imaginary ones created by the lusty anticipations of the judge. Curran, was one day most seriously annoyed by this habit of Lord Avonmore, and he took the following whimsical method of cor recting it. (The reader must remember that the object of the narrator was, by a tedious and malicious procrastination, to irritate his hearer into the vice he was so anxious to eradicate.) They werei to dine together at the house of a common friend, and a large party were assembled, many of whom witnessed the occurrences of the morning. Curran, contrary to his usual habits, was late for dinner, and at length arrived in the most admirably affected agitation. *• Why, Mr. Curran, you have kept us a full hour waiting dinner for you,” grumbled out Lord Avonmore. “Oh, my dear lord, I regret it much;, you must know it is not my custom; M I’ve just been witness to a most melan choly occurraoce.” “ My God ! you seem terribly moved by if ; take a glass of wine. What was it ;what was it ?” “ I will tell you, my lord, the moment I can collect myself. I had been de tained at Court—in the Court of Chan cery—you lordship knows the Chancel lor sits late.” I do, I do; but go on.” ** Well, my lord, I was hurrying here as fast as I could—l did not even changcf my dress—l hope I shall be excused for coming in my boots. ” Poh, poh, never mind your boots ; the point—come at once to the point of the story.” “ Ob, I will, my good lord, in a mo ment. I walked here ; I would dot even wait to get. the carriage ready ; it would have taken time you know. Now there is a market exactly in the road by which I had to pass; vour lordship may - perhaps recollect the market, do you?” “ To be sure I do ; go on, Curran— go bn with the story.” “ l aid very glad your lordship re members the market, for I totally for got- the name Of it —the name—the - #>* name— a “Whil the devil signifies the name of it, sir? It is the Castle Market.” Yourdlordship is perfectly right, it ■i iU called the Castle Market. Well, I was passing through that very identical , Cwtle Market, when 1 observed a butcher preparing to kill a calf. He hfttTa hogfi knife in his hand iit »» sharp as a razor. The calf was aCeruM ing behind him; he drew tho knife to plunge it into the animal,. Just was in the act of doing so, a little boy about four years old— his only son, Jltie loveliest little boy 1 ever saw—ran sud denly across his path, and lie killed-*«dh, my God ! he killed —” “ The child ! the child ! the child I ” vociferated Lind Avonmore. “No, my lord, the calf! ” continned Curran Very coolly ; he kilied4the calf, but your lordship is irt the habit of anticipating.” The universal faugh was thus rained against his lordship} and CtfrraW- w»- clared that often afterwards, a firs! im pression was removed more easily from the Court of Exchequer by the >teeoK lection of the’calf in Castle Market than by all the eloquence of the entire . pro fession. THE DAYS OF QUEEN MARY. Read the following paragraphs from Blackwood, and say, if you can, that the World has not advanced in niorals and intelligence : To give only one or two instances of the manners and ideas of the age in which Queen Mary’s lot was cast. It i* generally known that Henry VIII put seventy-two thousand persons, of a!.’ re ligious pursuasions, to death on the scaffold, during his single reign; but it is equally well known that his daughter Elizabeth had an array of three hundred heads of persons, convicted of high treason, placed on London bridge, in cluding those of her cousin and freind, Norfolk, and her favorite, romantic lov er, Essex ; and, so far fom being shock ed at the ghastly array, she took the foreign embassador to see it, in order to show how “we serve traitors in Eng land.” Protestant historians have re counted, with just indignation, that the bloody Mary cast two hundred and for ty men, women, and children into the flames during her breif and attrocious reign; but they have not equally prom inently brought forward, that a greater number of priests and Catholic partisans were, by her Protestant successor, se cretly 1 ra'ekeif to the utmost limits which the human frame can endure, in that aw ful scene.:of human agony,the Tower of London. After the massacre of St. Bartholo mew, the ladies of the court tvent out to examine long rows of the bodies of the Huguenot cavaliers who h:;d been s’ain during the tumult, and curiously turning them over, when half-strip; ed of their garments, said to each other, “This must have been a charming lover; that was not worth looking at.“ And when the frantic assassin, Ra viiliac, was brought out into the square of Louvre, to undergo during four hours the most frightful tortures which human ingenuity or malignity could devise, all the ladies of the port of Paris assembled to witness the spectacle; and as high prices were given for the best places on the street leading to St Paul’s, as on the occasion when the first and noblest of Britain attended her greatest hero to his last resting-place It is, perhaps, the most difficult thing, in surveying the annals of the past, to bring ourselves to conceive how human beings could, in any age, under any circumstances, have been brought to lend themselves to such barbarities.- But nothing is more certain than that the greatest and best did so. They deemed that they were doing God ser vice when so engaged. Witness Sir Thomas Moore flogging a prisoner wit h his dtvn hands, in his garden, to con vert him from heresy* If we arq wise and just, we will judge of thosd' who lived in those savage times according to the measure of the ideas with which they were surrounded/'and not our own; and reflect with deeper thankfulness on our happier lot, when Subjects are not called to undergo such sacrifices ip their duty to their sovereign andinf queen on tho throne can exhibit of her Piantagenet forefathers, and the graces of her Stuart, without being exposed to the terrible trials which either under went. DECLINE IN THE PRICE OF RUGAR. From the latest reports of the principle * sugar markets in the world, it Will be seen that there is a material falling rates and a continued downward move ment. Everywhere there is hope of an abundant yield in the coutries producing this staple. Louisiana promise* 800,000 hogsheads against less than one-third of that amount last year) Cuba will come up to the full limit other past production* jf she does not surpass it, uudor ihe stim ulus of the late high prices; Braziai shows no falling off; Mauritius continues tke : ratio of increasing nr*»ducion that has doubled her crop in seven years* and k f is doubtful whether India wiH not yield as large a supply as ever. - | The New York Herald in this coy. ! nection, . . . liiLis’ll I “In the face of this state onliffairt^ . we shall not be at all surprised tA fw » prees of this necessary staple i very low point, and every housowi/lde^ EDITOR m PROPRIETOR, WHOLE NUMBER 106, joicing over cheep soger end a fufl so gar-bowl. In fact, that is the natural law of trade. Prices of this article have been sp far above Hi cost of porduetton that consumption has been diminished, speculation excited, and stocks accu mulated, until the point of re-action ha# been reached, and speculation must cease and prices decline, until consump fian is again stimulated and stocks di minished. The recent high prices of sugar have been owing as much to ar tificial as to natural causes. It began with thlf failure of the crop in Louisiana, but rjpuved a large impulse, from the bi okfog expansion that took place in Havana, Stimulating as it did, specu lation to an extraordinary degree at one of the principal sources of supply* The revulsion )n Havana has commenc ed. It is true fhat en attempt is being made there to sustain prices by inflating the currency with paper issues, but this is a violation of the laws of finance and trade that will bring its own punish ment, and cannot save the price of su gar in (he face of the falling markets of th,e world. Let it go. We . paid too much for our sugar for some time back. One hundred per cent to the sugar planter is out of all reason, and tho world is tired of paying it. Let us have a cheaper sugar.”— Pioneer and Dew. ANOTHER UREADFIJL COtAAWUY EXPLOSION IN ENGLAND—rOftTT LIVES LOST. The Manchester papers of August Bti», contain the fbTJowing 1 Shortly after I o’clock, on Friday af ternoon, an explosion took place in & coal pit near Ashton, by which it was at once apprehended that more than thirty* persons must have lost their lives, and! there no longer exists any hope that the estimate was an exaggeration. This deplorable accident occurred at the Keyes Colliery, within half a mile of Ashton Town Mall. There are five seatns in the colliery, hut only two of them lately have been worked, and these are destinguished as the “two feet* mines,” and the “new mines.” There are three shafts, one up cast and two downcast. At 6 o’clock in the monring fifteen men descended to work in the two feet mine, which is about 165 down, and another party, whose num ber was between 30 and 40, descended' the No. 1, downcast shaft to work in the new mine, which is 225 yards down.— There appears to have been not the least alarm until at the time stated the neighborhood was thrown into constern ation by the noise of an explosion in the No. 1 down cast shaft, which shook the houses near the pit, and was heard for a very considerable distance around.— Almost at the same instant an immense qu mti.y of dust and smoke was shot up with such force ns to break the irop plating at the mouth of the pit. , The men who had been working iff the two feet mine ascended by the No. 2 down cast shaft as soon as they heard the noise. Great numbers of the peo ple were immediately attracted to the spot, and among them were a number of men from the neighboring colleges of the Fairbottom Company and of Messrs. Lees, who at once proceed to to descend the No. 1 dpwa cast ehaftal the new miue, in which it was feared that all the workmen had perished.—- Under the superintendence of Mr* Pearce, the manage and Mr. Garside,- the under .preparations were promptly made the **'• rious openings and., restoring the ai¥* currents. As sootr as possible MfU Garside descende# with a’ party of vol unteer?, including Several of those who bad escaped frotp the two feet mine.- They were supplied with milbriaht for stopping up thy openings of the work engioeerfeftll living, buuaeyerei/4>»*t, and he wps borne.
