We do not hear of any intention on the part of the Whigs offering a Candidate.- Liverpool has already raised upwards of £3,700. for relieving the distress in Ireland.The Anniversary of the birth of the late Mr. Pitt was celebrated by the Rochdale Pitt Club.

Poletica, arrived at Liverpool in the packet ship Columbia, Captain Rogers, from New York. Mr. Wallack, the performer, also came passenger in her, and we are sorry to find that he is not yet recovered from his late accident, not being

able to walk without the use of crutches.

A barber of Liverpool, a few days since, undertook, for a wager, to shave sixty men in an hour. He was triumphant in forty-five minutes, but continued his work, and actually shaved 82 in an hour.

A nest of full-fledged sky-larks was taken near Loughborough, and carried to Mr. Adams, druggist, of that town, where every possible art was had recourse to, for the purpose of feeding them, but all in vain. At length, they were put into a cage along with a fine cock canary bird, which, in a little time, began to nurture them as its own; and it is now so much occupied in feeding them, giving them water from its own beak, and performing other little parental offices for them, that it has totally ceased its usual melodious notes, as if they were incompatible with this new avoca tion.

Monmouth fair, gave no new hopes to the agriculturists. There were scarcely any fat cattle worth noticing; and the shew of lean stock was very small, but they went off at an advance of about 10 per cent.

Rose Trees. There is a classical custom observed, time out of mind, at Oakley, in Surrey, of planting rose-trees on the graves, especially of the young men and maidens, who have lost their lovers; so that the church-yard at that place is now full of them. It is the more remarkable, since it was anciently used amongst the Greeks and Romans, who were so very religious in it, that we often find it annexed as a codicil to their wills (as appears by an old inscription at Ravenna, and another at Milan,) by which they ordered roses to be yearly strewed and planted on their grave.

The nectary is calculated to hold twelve pints; the petals are about a foot long and half an inch thick; and its weight is about fifteen pounds.

Want alone is not the only calamity which is likely to spread its ravages in this ill-fated country, for she is now also threatened with all the evils flowing from the extension of contagious diseases. It is probable this last misfortune is a consequence of the first. It is almost unnecessary to observe, that the public atten

tion should be earnestly directed to this subject, when it is remembered that nearly 100,000 persons perished of contagious diseases in this kingdom after the scarcity of 1817 and 1818.

Several curious documents have lately been discovered at the venerable residence of the Earl of Howth, by Mr. Hardiman,

well known as an intelligent antiquarian, and author of the history of the town of Galway, while making some investigations for his Lordship, many of them as ancient as the reign of King John, some in the time of Henry II. and one, which Mr. Hardiman stated to be anterior to the landing of that monarch, being a grant from Lawrence O'Toole, consecrated Archbishop of Dublin in 1162, and afterwards canonized. This is supposed to be one of the oldest documents in Ireland, and with the others was found in a leaden box, which is itself a curiosity, being some centuries old. They are all in a state of the highest pre

The Earl of Buckinghamshire, it is reported, is about to sail from the port of Greenock, with nearly two hundred emigrants for Quebec. It is impossible to conceive the interest which the trial of Mr. Stuart, for being a principal in the late fatal duel with Sir Alexander Boswell, had excited throughout Edinburgh.

LONDON MARKETS, JUNE 25, 1822. COTTON.-The India-House sale took place on Friday last; the low qualities of Surats went off at d. a ¡d. per lb. under the previous prices, the better about d. lower; the whole were disposed of; about a half of the Bourbon Cotton brought forward sold at a reduction of a 1d per lb.; nearly the whole was taken for home consumption.

COFFEE. The quantity of Coffee brought forward last week was very extensive, 1080 casks and 3325 bags; towards the close of the week the request was not adequate to the sales brought forward; there was, in consequence, a heaviness, but no reduction in the prices could be stated.

SUGAR.-The market was exceedingly heavy till Thursday, the buyers waiting the event of the public sale; they anticipated a further and considerable reduction in the prices of Muscovades; the sale, consisting of nearly 600 hogsheads, went off, contrary to the general expectation, freely, and the prices were a shade higher than could be realised by private contract; low brown 50s. a 52s.; some lots realised so high as 66s. The market became more firm after the public sale, and considerable

RUM, BRANDY, and HOLLANDS.The Rum market has lately remained in a very languid and depressed state, and, notwithstanding the inconsiderable imports compared with the year 1821, and the probability of a very short supply, on account of the low prices, and the facility afforded the Planters to export from the West Indies to Europe, or the United States, yet the demand is languid; the purchases confined to small parcels to the trade, and to limited shipments; the prices are without alteration.-Brandies have been in some request, owing to the great reduction of the prices: the quotations are 2d. a 3d. per gallon higher, but the market has not such a favourable appearance as towards the close of last week.-In Geneva there is little alteration.

TALLOW.-The Tallow market is still in a very depressed state: parcels of yellow candle Tallow sell at 35s. and for arrival 35s. 6d. aud 36s. The market has been again rendered more languid, on account of the unfavourable news from St. Petersburgh; Tallow had fallen from 106 to 102 ro.: the Exchange 4th instant a fraction under 10d.
