TO SUBSCRIBERS. &nbsp; We must defer our notice of Mr. Lillie's very eloquent Lecture until next week, when we shall have 'a word or two' on the subject. Once again we intreat the attention of Government to the shameful manner in which the Bridgewater Ferry is con- ducted. We heard of an inquiry on this topic- what is the result ? We shall certainly make our authorities pay &nbsp; toll for such gross neglect, for in them is the real fault. The Ferry is at present a Bridge of Sighs.

?ht Courier* T.* THURSDAY EVENING, July 2, 1840. rat ranintNT'g MRKSAGKTAMifwtNitr-sixTHcongress. Fellow-Citizens of the Schafte and'House of Represen- tatives, I regret that I cannot on this occasion congratulate you that the past year has been one of unalloyed prosperity. The ravages of fire and disease have painfully afflicted other- wise flourishing portions of our country, and serious em- barrassments yet derange the trade of many of our cities. But, notwithstanding these adverse circumstances, that general prosperity which has been heretofore so bountifully bestowed upon us by the Author of all Good, still conti- nues to call for our warmest gratitude. Especially have ive reason to rejoice in the exuberant harvests which have lavishly recompensed well-directed industry, and given to it that sure reward which is vainly sought in visionary spe- culations. I cannot, indeed, view without peculiar satis- faction the evidences afforded by the past season of the benefits that spring ...

fjTjff Courtiy» FRIDAY EVENING, July 3, 1840. We understand from letters recently received, that Captain Montagu returns to this' colony, in which event Captain Forster takes the office of Chief Police Magistrate. Mr. Boyes, the Auditor, is placed in the Legislative Council in the room of the Archdeacon. There is to be no Grand Jury, and no change in the existing state of things in Van Diemen's Land this year, although we had reason to believe from the observation of Lord John Russell in the House of Commons, that the government of New South Wales and this colony would be altered in the present Ses- sion of Parliament. Sir George Arthur retains the government of Upper Canada for a year. At the instance of Captain Montagu, who was three times examined before the Emigration Committee, two hundred emigrant females are to be sent out at once to Van Diemen's Land. The Prohibition Act is allowed, but the distillers are to be com- pensated. The Quarantine Act is disallowed, on the ground t...

I LOCAL. Mechanics' Institute.-Mr, Lillie de- in cred, on Thursday evening, the 25th ultimo, an introductory lecture, being the first of the present session, on the advantages of classical knowledge in the formation of the mind, the development of the reasoning faculties, the exer- cise of memory, and the power of illustration uhich it affords, as well as its general utility in sharpening the apprehension to the attainment of the different branches of science. The lecture «as wholly in reference to the establishment of the new College, which occupies so much of public attention at the present moment. As a composition it was certainly a brilliant and a bold essay, but somewhat contradictory in its deduc- tions, for whereas in the first instance such studies were said to give a peculiar grace to com- position, it was subsequently made matter of regret that a slavish subserviency to these pur- suits so far estranged the mind from a know- ledge of native literature as to make it in a ma...
