ceeds 1,000,000 persons: no class of the lower orders lives in such luxury in their earlier years, and none so largely contributes to people the workhouses.

May 17. At the fifth annual meeting of the Ragged School Union, Lord Ashley stated that the society has now 82 schools, 30 of which are open during the day, and 50 in the evening, which are attended by 15,000 destitute infants, who before this institution was established were neglected and despised. There are still 20,000 miserable children in the metropolis who are in need of assistance.

May 23. The completion of a great Christian work set on foot some years siuce by Mr. Cotton, recently Governor of the Bank, and a few other benevolent gentlemen, viz., the reclaiming the moral waste which had too long prevailed in the Bethnal Green district, by the erection of 10 additional Churches, was celebrated by a festival following on the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the tenth church. How far the excellent objects of the originators of this movement have progressed may be ascertained when it is stated that in a parish containing 80,000 souls, which before had only two churches and three clergymen, the following objects have been accomplished: Nine churches have been consecrated, and the first stone of the tenth laid. Three parsonage houses have been built, and provision made for two more by a payment to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. Six schools for 3,000 children, with residences for the masters and mistresses, have been completed. Seventeen additional clergymen have been provided. The sites for three of the churches, the cost of two, and the endowment of one, have been offerings from individuals. In consequence of all these efforts many local charities also have been called into existence, including Sunday and adult schools, district visiting societies, provident and clothing funds, and similar benevolent institutions. Since the commencement of this great work new schools for 600 children have been erected in connection with St. John's Church, which had been built by the Church Commissioners in A.D. 1828. The 23rd of May having been appointed for laying the foundation-stone of the tenth church (St. Thomas's), it was resolved that the day should be set apart as a religious festival; accordingly Divine service was performed at the new churches, and the sermons were preached by the following: viz. at St. Peter's, by the Bishop of London; St. Jude's, by the Bishop of Winchester; St. James's, by the Bishop of St. Asaph; St. Philip's, by the Bishop of Ripon; St. Andrew's, by the Bishop of Lichfield;

St. John's, by the Bishop of Oxford; St. Bartholomew's, by Bishop Coleridge; St. Matthias's, by the Rev. T. Bowdler; St. Simon Zelotes', by the Rev. H. Mackenzie; and at St. Matthew's, the parochial church, by the Rev. W. C. Cotton. At four o'clock all the preachers, with the Earl of Harrowby, the Earl of Carlisle, Lord Radstock, and several other promoters of the good cause, proceeded to lay the first stone of the new church, which will contain, when completed, 950 sittings. It bore the following inscription: “On this site, the joint gift of W. O. Hammond, esq., Lady Isabella Brydges, and Mrs. Harrison, for a church, parsonage, and schools, the first stone of this building, which, when consecrated, will be known as St. Thomas's Bethnal-green, was laid on the 23d of May, A.D. 1849, by the Right Hon. the Earl of Harrowby, assisted by the Lord Bishop of London, W. Cotton, esq., the Rev. W. Kerry, the first incumbent of the intended new church, &c." Very excellent collections were made in all the churches.

May 24. The new church of St. Paul, Camden Town, was consecrated by the Bishop of London. This is the first of several churches which the present able and indefatigable Vicar of St. Pancras, the Rev. R. T. Dale, proposes to have built in his extensive parish. The building is in the Gothic style, from the designs of Messrs. Ordish and Johnson, and accommodates altogether about 1200 persons, of which 500 seats are free. The Marquess of Camden gave the ground, and, in addition, the Communion plate

and the sum of 5001.

May 25. The Committee for promoting the establishment of Baths and Washhouses for the labouring classes, have built an establishment in Goulston-square, Whitechapel, intended for 94 separate warm and cold baths, large plunge baths, vapour and shower baths, and sulphur and other medicated baths, and 96 separate washing-closets, each with its separate drying-closet; and to meet a weekly demand for about 30,000 baths, and the washing and drying of the clothes of about 20,000 persons. The gross expenditure on the works, including the purchase of the site &c. has been 26,6321. 5s. 2d. The sum required to complete them is estimated at 2,000l. which has still to be raised by subscription. In eighteen months-from July 1847, to Dec. 1848 -with but few baths in working order, and with expenses of superintendence which will not be materially increased now that the full number of baths are

open, the receipts were nearly 10001.

May 31. The annual dinner of the

Middlesex Hospital took place yesterday at the Freemasons' Tavern, under the especial patronage of his Grace the Duke of Northumberland, whose ancestor was, more than a century ago, its founder. The governors have just brought to a conclusion some extensive improvements and alterations in the construction of the hospital. The ventilation has been rearranged, a laundry established, and great changes effected in the different offices of the establishment. With the exception of subscriptions specially in aid of the building, and amounting in all to less than 5001. and of 1,6007. expended on the erection of a new ward, under the will of the late Lady Murray, the whole expenses of the alterations effected have been defrayed from the accumulated funds of the hospital. Lady Murray's ward will contain fifteen beds, and will cost 2001. per annum more than the interest of the sum invested for its endowment. To meet the loss arising from the expenditure of the vested capital of the hospital, as already explained, 350/. per annum will be required; while 4.0007. per annum beyond the ordinary income must be raised in order to develope to the fullest extent the benefits which the institution is now capable of affording.

June 2. His Royal Highness Prince Albert laid the foundation stone of an addition to the Licensed Victuallers' Asylum in the Old Kent Road. This addition the society has styled "The Ladies' Wing,' and it is to cost 4,000. The asylum was founded by his late Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex in 1828, being intended to contain 101 dwellings of three rooms each, and was completed according to that design in 1834. In 1840 two lodges were erected, giving accommodation to additional pensioners, and the charity now affords shelter and support to 124 inmates. Notwithstanding this addition, last year there were 64 competitors for four vacancies. It was, therefore, determined to erect "The Ladies' Wing," to contain 25 dwellings.

The cost of the hall and offices at the Euston Station of the London and North Western Railway has been more than 125,0007.

One of the principal dissenting institutions, Highbury College, has been sold to some members of the Church for the sum of 12,500/. and will in future be occupied as a training school for National School


Railways.-The Report of the Commissioners of Railways, dated the 1st of May, states that in the year 1848 an increase was made in the railway communications of the country greatly exceeding that of GENT. MAG. VOL. XXXII.

any former year. At the commencement of the year 3,816 miles of railway were open for traffic, and during the year the opening of 1,191 miles of railroad was sanctioned by the Commissioners, making the whole extent at the end of the year 5,007 miles, the proportion being for England, 3,918; for Scotland, 728; and for Ireland, 361 miles respectively. By the opening of the Chester and Holyhead Railway, the communication between I.ondon and Dublin has been greatly facilitated. The mails are now conveyed within 17 hours, and the completion of that gigantic work-the tubular bridge across the straits-will effect a saving of one hour more. The most important addition to the railways in Ireland has been the extension of the South-Western communication from Dublin, viz. from Ballybroughy to Tipperary and Limerick, by the opening of portions of the Limerick and Waterford and the Great Southern and Western railways. Of the whole extent of railways authorised by Parliament at the end of 1848, upwards of 7,000 miles of railway remained to be completed, no portion of the lines sanctioned prior to 1844, and only 20 miles of the railways sanctioned in that year, being included in the amount. It is assumed, on good ground, that at least one-half of the 4,800 miles of authorised railways of which the works are not in progress will never be completed under the existing Acts of Parliament, and that at least 50,000,000l. of authorised capital will not be required, on account of the abandonment of the works. The report adverts to the great change which has taken place in public opinion with respect to the value of railway investments. During 1848 the price of Consols increased about 4 per cent. while the average price of investments in four of the principal railways declined about 20 per cent. The average price of four lines exhibits a fall of 53 per cent. in less than two years.


May 15, 16, 17. The important estates of Sir Massey Stanley, Bart. in this county, were submitted to auction by Messrs. Farebrother, Clark, and Lye, at the Stanley Arms Hotel, Eastham, near Liverpool, in many lots. The mansion (Hooton Hall) and 850 acres of land formed the first lot, and was bought in at 85,000. There were many bidders, and it is understood the lot has been since Various sold to an opulent banker. other lots found spirited buyers (at nearly 33 years' purchase) to the amount of about 65,000l. The following days the competition was equally great, when va


rious gentlemen were purchasers to the amount of nearly 200,0007.


May 29. The church of Buckfastleigh, near Ashburton, was fired by an incendiary, but by extraordinary exertions the fire was got under just at the time it had communicated to the roof. The vestry is entirely burnt down; the roof of the north aisle much injured and burnt, as also the flooring at the altar. The chest in the vestry, containing old records and various documents belonging to the parish, is entirely destroyed.


June 12. A dreadful explosion of firedamp occurred at the Hebburn Pit, the property of Thomas Easton and Company, on the river Tyne, Newcastle. It took place about half-past six o'clock in the morning, when upwards of 100 workmen were in the mine; but it was confined to the north-west district, where the sufferers were employed, and thirty-three were killed. The entire workings extend over about fifty acres, and are ventilated by means of two shafts, an upcast and a downcast one-the furnace system of ventilation being employed. As usual in such cases, nothing is known as to the immediate cause of explosion, for no one lives that can tell the tale.


April 30. The first stone was laid by H.R.H. Prince Albert of the buildings for a new Farm School to be erected at Redstone Hill near Reigate, by the Philanthropic Society. The Duke of Richmond, President of the Society, the Marquess of Westminster, the Bishops of Winchester and Norwich, and many other distinguished persons, were also present. The

farm consists of 133 acres, of which the Society has taken a lease for 150 years: and the buildings are destined to accommodate 180 boys: a chapel and schoolroom will be attached, and a house had already been erected for the Chaplain and Secretary, the Rev. Sydney Turner. The old buildings in St. George's Fields will eventually be vacated. (See our Feb. number, p. 193.) Within the last six months, the Society have sent 30 or 40 as emigrants to Australia and the Cape of Good Hope.

Two persons have been apprehended on a charge of breaking into the parish church of Kew, and stealing therefrom an iron chest, containing the parish registers. The robbery took place on the 22d Feb. 1845, when the church-door lock was picked, and the chest in which they were was carried away. Letters had been received, offering, for a handsome reward, to restore the parish registers and deeds uninjured, but no notice was taken of them. Amongst the documents stolen were the certificates of the marriages of William IV., and of the Duke of Kent. The matter had been long since given up when information was received by the police which led to the apprehension of John Standen, a hawker or costermonger, as the thief, and George Tilbey of Lissongrove, as the receiver, and they were committed to Kingston gaol.


April 22. The Bishop of Chichester consecrated a new church at Middleton, near Bognor. It is in the early-English style, and is built on a piece of ground presented by Mr. Cook, an opulent farmer in the parish. The old church, together with the churchyard, were some years ago carried away by the encroachments of the sea, and not a vestige of them remains.
