give according to their ability. The smallest contributions will be thankfully received. Let every individual contribute, if it be but a stone to the building, that their children may hereafter have the pleasure of pointing to its beautiful turrets, and exclaiming, “Our Fathers BUILT THEM.”

“ It has pleased an all-wise Providence to remove from amongst us that revered individual who laid the foundation-stone of the building, and who felt so warm an interest in its success, but there is every reason to hope that the college will find an equally zealous patron in his honored successor, and go on prospering and to prosper.

“Let all combine to advance its prosperity. It will be felt as a disappointment if the name of any one inhabitant who has even a shilling to spare, be found wanting in the general catalogue of subscribers.

SINGULAR LAWS IN THE ISLE OF MAN. Lands may be alienated by deed, but not by will; no lease can be of a longer term than 25 years; and all such lands as have an unredeemed mortgage of 8 years' standing pass over to the mortgagee. Two witnesses, but neither seal nor stamp, are necessary to a conveyance of freehold property; and there are no such things as entailed estates beyond the heir of the owner. If a man marries an heiress, and survives her, he claims, so long as he remains a widower, one moiety of her estate; she, during her life, has no control over her property without the consent of her husband ; neither can he sell or leave his own estate without his wife's consent, so as to prejudice her right of survivorship. No landed proprietor is liable to arrest in a civil suit, unless it can be clearly proved he has it in contemplation to quit the island. For bigamy or polygamy no punishment falls on the parents, but upon the children, who are declared bastards, and rendered incapable of inheriting property. If two sticks zu e placed across a door, even if the door be open, it is felony to enter burglariously. Forgery is only regarded in the light of a civil debt. Theft, abuve the value of sixpence halfpenny, is capital.

LONACH HIGHLAND SOCIETY.

The Lonach Highland Society of Strathdon, held the anniversary meeting on the 29th of August, and having repaired from Edinglassie, the seat of Sir Charles Forbes, bart. patron of the association, to Culquhony, the plaided competitors contended with high spirit for the prizes to be awarded. The evening was spent in the exhilarating delights of the ball-room, which was attended by the Earl of Craven, Lord Molineux, and a numerous assemblage of the neighbouring gentlemen and visitors. It is gratifying to find amid the change of manners and altered pursuits of the 19th century, encouragement given to the innocent and invigorating diversions of times gone by, and a fond desire in Highland proprietors to foster the manly spirit of their tenants, and promote in Gaelic phrase “sugradh, abhais, agus seann amhailtean na'n Gleann," the hilarity, pastimes, and the old sports of the glens.

WELSH FLANNELS.

The East India Company's order for 20,000 yards of flannels, after being one year sent to Lancashire, has again been sent to a draper in Shrewsbury; the quality of the Lancashire goods being found so inferior as to be nearly useless in India. At the flannel market in Newtown, on the 25th ult. the most scarce goods were those at from 6d. to 14d. per yard; middle goods from 15d. to 21d.; fine and super 22d. to 2s. 9d. Enquiries were made for extra superfine at from 3s. 6d. to 3s. 9d.: but there were not enough of wool in the market; and as wool has much advanced, the manufactured goods must consequently advance.
