Ile has thc most commanding eloquence I ever heard in nny person ; his abilities are very considerable ; his zeal unquestionable ; and his piety and excellence genuine, unquestionable. The bishops and iuferior orders of the clergy are very angry with him nnd endeavour to re- present him as n hypocrite, nn enthusiast ; but this is not astonishing, there is so Httlo real goodness or honesty among them. Your Ladyship will bc somewhat amused at hearing that the King has recommended to his Grace of Canterbury that Mr. Wake- field should bc advanced to thc hench, as I the only means of putting an end to his preaching. What a keen, what a biting remark ! but how just, and how well earned to those mitred Lords.' ...

AGRICULTURE. [From the Farmer's Magazine for February.] ESSAY ON GUANO. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 August 1845

AGRICULTURE. [From thc l'armer'» Magazine for February.] ESSAY ON GUANO. {Concluded from our last.) THE chemical composition of guano is very interesting, becatiso from it only can we lr»arn why it is so beneficial to vegetation. Different specimens vary greatly in composi- tion, owing to differences in age, in the de- gree of dryness of their locality, orin their moro or less free exposuro to air and light. The white or recent guano is of course the most valuable, because it bas lost little or nothing by the action of tho weather, as the more ancient kinds have; but of it we pos- sess no detailed analyses of the excrements of tho gannet and of the sea-eagle, which are both sea birds, and, like those which de- posit guano, live mostly on fish. The ex- crements of the gannet consist almost en- tirely of «Wc acid (a compound of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen.) Those of the sea-eagle are thus constituted, per cent. : Solid excrements.

We hnve already recorded thc death of Air. Laman Blanchard, by his own hand, a few days ago, nt thc age of 42. "When coun- tenances habitually associated with mirth are changed by death, the impression of the events is peculiarly mournful. Both these gentlemen were wits in so- ciety and periodical literature. Both were men of honor, integrity, and independence. According to their menus, Sydney Smith nnd Laman Blanchard were men on thc watch to do kind, good, and generous things to everybody. Both were amiable men ; often would Mr. Lnmnn Blanchard delight his friends by repeating the sayings, and extolling thc genius of Mr. Sydney Smith. On the wordly aspect of their lives, the advantages of wealth and stntion arc on thc side of the Canon of St. Paul's. Mr. Lu- man Blanchard was a man of letters ; he maintaine...
