Sheldon Church.—The parish church of Sheldon, in ihe diocese of Exeter, has lately undergone very considerable improvements having been renewed, and a new aisle built, the whole of which lias been done by private subscription*, added to a grant of 20/. from the Society for Promoting the Enlargement, Building, and Repairing of Churches and Chapels. And on Sunday, the 2-5th of January, on the occasion of the completion of the work, a sermon was pr ached there by the lie v. Charter E. Bund, t lie Incumbent, from Exodus xxv. later part of 24th verse, to a crowded congregation; after which, a most gratifying ojlleotiun was made at the dors.

Ways And Means Of Tin. Voluntary System !—The following notice, which is now ported in tome parts of London, may asniuc and instruct our readers;— "ASTRONOMY.

"A lecture will be delivered at Heniit'tia-^tieet Chapel, near Hrunswiek-sqinre, on Wednesday, the 25ih of February, 1835, on Astronomy, illustrated wiih numerous transparencies of the heavenly bodies, &c. Music will he introduced at intervals by a professional gentleman, who will play Gieen's royal scraphb.e. To coinmtnce at seven o'clock precisely. Tickets for adults, is. 6d.; for children, 1$ racA. The entire proceeds trill be applird towards the liquidation of the debt on the a bore chapel."

How uVlightfnl the reflection, were all our churches to be maintained only by the aid of astronomical lectures, ma^ic lanterns, and seraplnnes!!

Charity Of THt '* Voluntary System."— The advocates of the "voluntary system'* cut a very sorry figure among the supporters of public charities. Probably they carry their principle to the extent of saying ihat all hospitals should be supported by the patients. It appears that there are to the

The whole amount of the subscriptions is 267 guineas, and of these the Dissenters subscribe the very large and mighty propoition of one thirty-eighth; while the subscriptions of clerg\ men alone amount to 60 guineas, more than nine times the amount given by the

whole body of Dissenters.

Extraordinary Change Ringing.—A party of the ancient society of change ringers lately assembled in the tower of Great St. Mary's church, Cambridge, and rang in an accurate style a peal of Bob Trebles, consisting of eighteen hundred and thirty five changes, being the date of the present year, and in coupliment to the Marqiti* Camden ueing chosen Chancellor of this University. As far as corresponding with the date of the period, the same peal cannot be rung again for fourteen years; it was composed and conducted by Daniel Woods, of Norwich, and performed by

Statistics Worth Knowing.—In Great Brilain, ih-* number of individuals in a state to hear arms, from the age of fifteen to sixty, is 2.7*14,847. The number of marriages is about 9S,030 yearly; and it has been remarked, that in sixty-three of these unions, there were f nly three which hid no issue. The number of deaths is about 332,708 yearly, which makes m arly 2j,5U2 monthly, 6,398 weekly, 914 daily, and 40 hourly. The deaths among the women are in proportion to those of the men, as 50 to 54. The married women live longer than those who continue in celibacy. In the country, the mean term of the number of children produced by each marrhige, is four; in (own*, the proportion U seven for every two marriages. The number of married women is to the general number of individuals, of the sex, as one to thrte; and the number of married men, to that of all th ■ individuals of the male sex, as three to five. The number of widows is to that of widowers, Es three to one; but the number of widows who marry again, is to that of widowers in the same case, as seven to four. The individuals who inhabit elevated situations, live longer than those who resMe in less elevated places. The half of the individuals die helbre attaining the age of 17. The number of twins is to that of ordinary births as 1 to fi5. According to calculations founded upon the bills of mortality, one individual only in 3,126 attains the age of 100 years. The number of births of the male sex is to that of the female sex, as 96 to 95.

Saxon Literature.—John Kemble, A.M. of Trinity College, Cambridge, and eldest son of Mr. Charles Kemble, has been solicited by the University to give a course of lectures on Saxon literature.

Death Of The Rev. Edward Irving.—We have hitherto been prevented, by press of matter, from recording the death of the Rev. Iidward Irving, M.A. which took place at Glasgow, on the 6th of December, after a short but severe illness. He was sensible to the last, and his departing words were "in life or in death, I am the Lord's;" previous to which he sung the 23d Psalm in Hebrew, accompanied by his wife's father, the Rev. John Martin. Mr. Irving was an amiable man in all the relations of life; and of his thorough honesty, and decided, though grievously misdirected piety, there can be doubt. His complaint was consumption, produced by his laborious and unceasing efforts to propagate the peculiar religious tenet.-, to which he had attached himself. Those who have seen him within the last twelve month*, and have marked his long grey hair, and wrinkled brow, will be surprised to learn that he has died in the prime of Life, having only attained his 42d year. He leaves a widow and several young children to lament the loss of a kind husband and father. Mr. Irving'* disciples have been rapidly increasing up to the present time, and a new chapel was opened for their accommodation in Islington parish about a fortnight since. It is not probable that they will hold together long after the death of the great father of the sect.

Death Of Dr. Carey.—We are concerned to learn that the venerable Dr. Carey, whose indefatigable labours in translating the Holy Scriptures into the languages of the East are so well known to the Biblical scholar, and to all the friends of missions, has finished his earthly course. He expired at Serampore, the scene of his valuable and most interesting labours, on the 9th of June.

Th« Breadalbane Bequest.—The late Marquis of Breadnlhane left 3,000/. to be distributed among the charities of Perth. The sum has been awarded in the following proportions:—To the Destitute Sick Society, 6001.; Indigent Old Men's Society, 47 J7.; Female Society for the relief of Indigent Aged Women, 4751.; Infant School, 250/.; City Mission, 200/.; Auxiliary Deaf and Dumb Society, 100/.; to the establishment and support of an infirmary in Perth, 600/.; legacy duty, 300/.
