Spain.—First and foremost in our foreign retrospect, comes Spain,
"The land where the cypress and myrtle,
Are emblems of deeds that are done in her clime;"
and where,alas ! civil war, that heaviest curse, lowers o'er the fairest spot in Europe; and it is probable the bones of thousands more of our brave, but imprudent countrymen, are destined to whiten the soil. Lord Palraerston, the prince of protocol writers, has, it appears, sanctioned a quasi interference in the internal affairs of Spain, mid 10,000 British troops are allowed to sell their blood in a mercenary warfare. For the officers we care not; the men, seduced by specious promises, we pity. Colonel Evans, the radical representative of the Westminster Rump, we can very well spare; and the staff composed of ruined roues— dealers at Rouge et Noir tables, decoys of the St. James's Hells, and Levanters of the turf, are fit " food for powder." But the poor artisan should be warned. We will only say that the Duke D'Angouleme, with one hundred thousand men, well officered and equipped, and supported by the legitimate government, found great difficulty in reaching Cadiz, though opposed only by undisciplined bands of Guerillas. Will ten thousand of " FalstafFs ragged wretches," commanded by nobody, supported by nobody, and PAID by nobody,
have better success? We calculate not; and hope such of our readers as possess influence with their poor and ignorant neighbours, will put the matter in a proper point of view.
The widows of the slain will have no pension!
The wounded no indemnity!!
The unpaid no remedy 11!
And the result to the community at large, will be the compulsory support of the widows and orphans of ten thousand victims of liberality!!!!
For not ONE will live to revisit England.
Guerra a cucillo ! will be the war cry against the intruders.
In other parts of the continent, nothing interesting has occurred.
Ireland.—Lord Hatherton's description continues applicable; two Popish murders per diem being the present average.
West Indies.—The accounts from our present transatlantic possessions are rather more favourable; i. e. the volcano only burns internally. The friends of Justice will be glad to hear that Mr. Buxton has been signally defeated in his unmanly and disgusting attempt to rob the West Indians of the modicum of compensation granted them. Even one or two Whigs blushed at the barefaced and profligate proposal. And the compensation money will be distributed on the 1st of September next.
UNIVERSITY, ECCLESIASTICAL, AND PAROCHIAL INTELLIGENCE.
TRIBUTES OF RESPECT.
Rev. W. K. L. Faulkner.—A salver, and other articles, forming a service of silver plate, were subscribed for, and presented on the 28th of May, 1885, to the Rev. W. E. L. Faulkner, M.A. upwards of twenty years Rector of St. John's, Clerkenwell, by a numerous body of his parishioners, and others, attendants at his church, in testimony of their affectionate regard and esteem for him, and of their admiration and grateful sense of the zeal, talents, faithfulness, and charity, with which he has discharged, for so long a period, every duty of his laborious ministry.
Rev. C. Packe.—On the 7th of May, 1835, a silver salver was presented to the Rev. C. Packe, Rector of St. Michael Bassishaw, on the occasion of his resigning that living. The following is the inscription :—" Presented by the parishioners of St. Michael Bassishaw, London, to the Rev. Christopher Packe, M.A., on his resignation of the rectory of that parish, as a memorial of their affectionate regard. Januarv, 1835."
Rev. Dr. Geo. Richards.—The parishioner! of St. Martin-in-the-Fields have presented to their late much-respected Vicar, the Rev. George Richards, D.V. late Fellow of Oriel College, a handsome silver soup tureen and stand, and two large dishes and covers, surmounted with the group (from the original design) of St Martin on horseback, dividing his cloak with the beggar. They are very massive, weighing 798 ounces, 2 dwts. and bearing the following inscription:— "The parishioners of St. Martin-in-the-Fields to the Rev.George Riehards, D.D.. upon his resignation of that vicarage, in acknowledgment of his highly valuable pastoral services; as also for his active exertions and munificent donations for the spiritual welfare of the parish.—1835."
Rev. Henry Plimley.—At a public vestry of the inhabitants of St. Leonard's, Shoreditch, it was unanimously resolved—" That the grateful and respectful thanks of this'meeting be given to the Rev. Henry Plimley, A.M., for his christian-like and conciliatory spirit, in which he has, during the protracted period of thirty years, conducted himself as Vicar of this parish, and for Bis kind and courteous demeanour upon all occasions to the parishioners of every denomination."
Rev. T. Haneinson.—The Rev. T. Hankinson, Curate of St Nicholas, having been appointed Minister of Zion Chapel, Camberwell, preached his farewell sermon on Sunday evening, June 21st, atSt. Margaret's Church, Cambridge, to a numerous congregation. The friends and admirers of the reverend gentleman, in testimony of his valuable services as their pastor, during his five years' residence, have subscribed the sum of ninety guineas, with which they have purchased a handsome silver urn, to be presented to him on quitting the town. The subscriptions did not exceed a pound each, but the greater part was raised by smaller contributions.
Rev. J. W. Bellamy.—On Thursday, June 11, the election of scholars from Merchant Tailor's School to St John's College, took place, when Messrs. Thomas C. Maule, A. B. C. Starkie, and W. J. Wyse, the three head monitors, were chosen. As a proof of the good feeling which exists between the master and the boys of this school, we mention the following circumstance:—The boys, a short time ago, being desirous of offering some testimony of respect to their highly-talented master, the Rev. J. W. Bellamy, B.D. of St. John's College, requested his permission to have his likeness taken for an engraving; to this he assented. An impression of the engraving, from an excellent likeness, is now in the possession of each of the juvenile subscribers, and will be carefully preserved, in remembrance of the kindness and attention of their master.
Rev. J. Allen.—The pupils of Ilminster Grammar School have presented their much respected Master, the Rev. J. Allen, M.A. formerly of Christ Church, with a very handsome silver bread-basket, as a token of their esteem and gratitude.
Bedford Charity.—The Trustees of the Bedford charity, together with other respectable inhabitantsjof the town who were present on Thursday, the 18th of June, when the boys educated in the Commercial Schools were examined by the Rev. Mr. Kelly, of London, were highly gratified with the proficiency of the different classes in the various branches of English education, in which they were examined. This school is rapidly rising in importance and usefulness, and does great honour to Mr. Moore, the Head Master of the establishment, and to the trustees who have anxiously assisted him in carrying into effect the various rules and regulations which he has deemed necessary. The zeal and energy of the Assistant Masters are every thing that can be desired.
Anniversary Meeting Op Charity Schools At St. Paul's Cathedral.— On June 4th, the anniversary meetingof children educated at the Charity Schools in the metropolis and environs took place at St Paul's. There were present, the Marquess Camden, the Lord Mayor, and other civic dignitaries; the Rev. Mesars. Tate, Canons of the Cathedral, &c; but the great lion of the (lay was the son of the lato Tippoo Saib. The services were altogether imposing, especially the Coronation Anthem, and the 100th Psalm. When the verse, "All the people shouted, God save the King !" was given, the seven thousand little voices under the dome, all in perfect concord and unison, gave an effect to this grand anthem which can only be appreciated by those who were fortunate enough to have obtained seats in the edifice. A most appropriate sermon, from the 8th chapter of Deuteronomy, 7th and 8th verses, was preached by the Bishop of Worcester, formerly a Canon Residentiary of this Cathedral. His Lordship feelingly described the moral and social advantages derived from educating the lower classes, and the necessity of combining religious with useful instruction. We understand that upwards of 600/. were collected at the doors.
