Wo havo been favoured with nn opportunity of inspecting the carriages, two in number,' to be used on -hi« tramway.

On the roof tht-re will u\-o be seats, which will be reached by means of a small iron ladder and a man-hole. One of these elegant convevnnccB is capable of ac commodating abont sixty-tlireo persons.

It appears that Mr. Ciarkc, who was tho cashier to the above firm, was on Friday lust desired by Mr. Watt to account for sonio dis crepancies in his accounts, and it is supposed that he has taken flight in consequence of not being prepared with tho needful explanation, as upon the examination of his books it wns dis covered that he had been carrying on a sys tematic falsification of the accounts. This falsi fication appears to havo been principally carried on about two years ago, and the money thereby embezzled to havo been all spent, so that it is BOt prob...
