Sheldon Church.—The parish church of SheMon, in the diccese of Exeter, has lately undergone very considerable improvement*, having been repewed, and a new aisle built, the whole of which has been dune by private subscriptions, added to a grant o[ 20/. from the Society (or Promoting the Enlargement, Building, and Repairing of Churches and Chapels. And on Sunday, the 25th of .January, on the cccasion of the completion of the work, a sermon was pr ached there by the Rev. Charles E. 15;.ml. the Incumbent, from Exodus ixv. tatter part of 24th verse, to a crowded congregation; after which, a most gratifying collection was made at the dojrs.

Ways And Mf.ans or Tin. Voluntary System !—The following notice, which is now ported in tome parts of London, may ;i nu ,r and instruct our readers: — "ASTRONOMY.

"A lecture will be delivered at Henrietta-street Chapel, near Hninswick-sqmre, on Wednesday, the 25rh of February, 1835, on Astronomy, illustrated with numerous transparencies of the heavenly bodies, &c. Music will be introduced at intervals by a professional gentleman, who will play Gieen's royal srraphine. To commence at seven o'clock precisely. Tickets for adults, \s. fid.; for children, Is each. The entire proceeds tcifl be applied towards the liquidation of the deht on the above chapel.1*

How delightful the reflection, were all our churches to be maintained only by the aid of astronomical lectures, magic lanterns, and seraphines!!

Charity Of The "voluntary System."—■ The advocates of the "voluntary system" cut a very (sorry figure among the supponers of public charities. Probably they carry their principle to the extent of saying that 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 clevgvmcn alone amount to 66 guineas, more than nine times the amount given by the

whole body of Dissenter.*.

Extraordinary Change Ringing.—A party of the ancient society of changeringers lately assembled in the tower of Great St. Mary's church, Cambridge, and rang in on accurate style a peal of Bob Trebles, consisting of eighteen hundred and thirty five changes, being the date of the present year, and in compliment to the Marquin ('Hmden 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.—la Great Britain, ih-* number of individuals in a state to hear arms, from the age of fifteen to sixty, is 2.744,847. The number of marriiiges is about 98,030 yearly; and it has been remarked, that in sixty-three of these unions, there were r nly three which had no issue. The number of deaths is about 33*2,708 yearly, which makes marly 23,592 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 matried women live longer than those who continue in celibacy. In the country, the mean term of the number of children produced by each marriage, is four; in (owns, the proportion i* seven for every two marriages. The number of married women is to the general number of individuals of the sex, as one to thne; and the number of married men, to that of all ih • individuals of the male sex, as three to five. The number of widows U to thai 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/.
