London.

The presentments made by the leet juries of the three manors in the borough of Southwark exhibited a much greater number than usual of persons who had been amerced in penalties for using illegal weights, scales, and measures. The penalties, varying from 2s. 6d. to 10l., amount in the whole to between 600l. and 700l.

Bucking HAMSHIRE,

Allotment System—The “Bucks Gazette” contains the following satisfactory article on this subject:—The parish authorities of Buckingham have taken the glebe farm of 103 acres, to let out in small allotments of from one to three acres, to such labourers as may apply for them, the parish agreeing to assist such labourers until their first crop is housed. Several parishes in the neighbourhood have adopted a similar plan, which we earnestly hope will restore the honest, industrious labourer, to that independence now nearly lost among that class

of society. The Duke of Buckingham has offered land in all the parishes in which he has property, for the use of the labouring poor. In the parish of Buckingham a two-acre renter (and not an agricultural labourer) had a produce of five quarters from less than one acre of ground, and on the other acre has and will realise more than 201, in potatoes; in fact, the two-acre system has been for several years in operation on his Grace's estate near Buckingham; and we can confidently state that (although there are some bad managers) one third more food for man and beast has been produced from this land than was produced when let altogether. Can any thing be said more in favour of this admirable system 2 cornwall.i.

There has been a valuable course of copper ore recently discovered on Trevarren Beach, near Morgan Porth, by Mr. Trethewy, an engineer, who has secured the set, and is about to commence forming a company. The copper is said to be of an excellent quality.

The following article on the manufactures of Scotland is from Mr. Horner's Report to Lord Duncannon, dated London, July 20, 1834 :—

“The total number of cotton, woollen, flax, and silk factories in Scotland, in which the machinery is moved by steam-engines or water-wheels, amount to 388. It is possible that there may be some country woollen mills which have been omitted by the surveyors, but if so, they can only be on a very small scale. The chief seats of the cotton and flax mills are in those parts of the country where coal abounds, or is to be had at a cheap rate from the vicinity of the sea; and some great mills have been established in situations distant from coal, where there is a great command and fall of water; but it is remarkable. that some situations in Scotland, highly favourable for manufactures, are without them, as, for instance, in the neighbourhood of Edinburgh, where coal is very cheap, where there is a large population to supply young hands, and where there is a sea-port to save the expense of land-carriage, both for the raw material and the manufactured article. With the exception of some large establishments at Aberdeen, and one at Stanley, near Perth, the cotton manufacture is almost entirely confined to Glasgow, and the country immediately adjoining, to a distance of about 25 miles radius, and all these country mills, even including the great works at Stanley, are connected with Glasgow houses, or the Glasgow trade.

“The spinning of flax by machinery is the next manufacture carried on in mills to a large extent. These factories are even more numerous than the cotton mills, but are generally on a smaller scale. The chief seats of that manufacture are in the counties of Forfar, Fife, and Aberdeen; they are chiefly engaged in spinning the coarser qualities of yarns, but the finer qualities are on the increase. With few exceptions, the woollen mills of Scotland are on a small scale. Of the total number, 89, 71 do not employ 50 people each ; and of these 71, there are 26 which do not give employment to 20 people each.

There are only six silk mills in all Scotland, and only three of these are of any importance. The total number of persons employed in the cotton, woollen, flax, and silk mills of Scotland, is 46,825; of whom 13,721 (3799 males and 9922 females) are between the ages of thirteen and eighteen ; and 6.228 (2552 males and 3676 females) are under thirteen years of age. There are a few under eleven ; their number, as in the returns, amounts to above 1 100 : but that is not to be taken as the number now in the mills, for I have found that since these returns were made, some mill-owners have discharged all under eleven, and taken on older children in their stead. At the same time, I am inclined to think, that a deduction of 100 would cover all who have been so discharged; for it was usually in cases where two, three, or four only were under eleven, and it was not thought worth while altering the arrangements of the mill for so small a number. The

"enumeration of steam-engines and water

wheels is not to be understood as showing the actual number of engines and wheels, because the returns for those mills where more than one engine or water-wheel is employed, only state the total amount of the power. It will be seen, however, that the total amount of steam-power is 5330 horses, and that the water-wheels are estimated as equal to a power of 4822 horses—making together a mechanical moving power equivalent to 10.152 horses.”

Of the 5330 horses of steam-power given in the above report, the town of Dundee alone produces 1042, being about one-fifth of the whole steam-power of Scotland.

The election of Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow, caused by the elevation of Mr. Cockburn to the Bench, has taken place. The candidates—or rather those nominated by their respective partisans—were Lord Stanley (the late Secretary) and the Earl of Durham, and a very active canvass was carried on by the adherents of both parties. The former was supported by the church party, and the latter by the radicals. At the conclusion, the election of Lord Stanley was carried by the great majority of 135 ; the votes being, Stanley, 298; Durham, 163.
