BEDFORDSHIRE. As two men were digging stone in the Parish of Odell, adjoining the road leading from Boteat to Harrold, near Dungey corner, a skeleton of a female was found about three feet from the surface, supposed to have been murdered, from the situation of the bones, the head lying south, and the feet to the north; the teeth were perfect in the head, and, what is very remarkable, an ivory tooth was in the upper jaw; in the cen. tre of the bones there was found a brilliant stone, by the side of it an ivory comb, a gold pin, bead, and ear-ring of gold.

CORNWALL. The Logan Stone. The Logan rock has been replaced after three days' labour, by the help of three pair of large sheers, six capstans, worked by eight men each, and a variety of pulleys. Large chain cables were fastened round the rock, and attached to the blocks by which it was liftert. Altogether there were about sixty men employed. The weight of the rock has been variously com. puted, by different persons, at from seventy to

ninety tons. On the first day, when the rock was swung in the air, in the presence of about two thousand persons, mueh anxiety was felt, by those who were present, as to the success of the undertaking. The ropes were much stretched; ibe pulleys, the sheers, and the capstans, all screeched and groaned; and the noise of the ma. chinery was audible at sotne distance. Many were very apprehensive lest so vast a weight might snap all the ropes, and tumble over the precipice, bearing the sheers and scaffoldings away with it; however, the whole went off with great success, The materials were excellent, and, though a rope or two broke, and a link. of one of the chains tore away a small piece of an angle of the rock, which was thrown with much velocity into the sea, yet the rock was safely sup. ported by its complicated tackling, and stands, once more, in precisely its former position ! Lieutenant Goldsmith, who threw it down, was the engineer in replacing it. It is understood that this work is defrayed by subscription. Filty pounds have been given by the London Geological Society.

CUMBERLAND. A new Act of Parliament is to be applied for in the next Session of Parliament for improving the port of Whitehaven. The trustees have held a meeting, when the measure was determined upon, and the Earl of Lonsdale gave up the exclusive control hitherto vested in his Lordship, as Lord of the Manor of St. Bees, in a portion of the harbour. Another important matter came under discussion, that of building the pier by contract as recommended by Mr. Rennie. Mr. Ma. thieson, who has constructed many extensive works, sent a proposal to the Trustees, which they have submitted to Mr. Rennie. Before the expiration of 1825, the new pier will be completed to the extent of 130 yards, which will be about thirty yards beyond the first angle.

NORFOLK. A meeting of the Eau Brink Commissionen was held Ely, on Taesday last, pursuant to adjournment from the quarterly meeting at Lyon. The meeting was fully and most respectably at. tended, and Sir W. B. Folkes was called to be chair. A long discussion took place on the pra. priety of reading to the meeting the opinion of counsel relative to the return to be made to the mandamus obtained by the Marshland Proprietors (several individuals connected with Marekland being present at the meeting) : whiclı terminated in the appointment of a select committee to consider the question and report thereon to the meeting. The committee retired with the solki. tor, and recommended the opinion to be silbheki. A resolution was then moved by the Rer. W, Gale Townicy, that a committee be appointed 10 consider the leads of a bill for widening the cut, for repealing the clauses for the drainage of Marslıland, and for placing the engineers under the control of the commissioners; but the cominissioners from Marshland, present at the meeting, refusing to bind themselves to agree to the bill, the motion was negatived. It was tben mored, that a committee be appointed to reprosent llie several parties interested in the widening of the cut, and the draining of Marshland, for the purpose of considering whether any plads could be devised for reconciling the existing differ. ences between the Marshland proprietors and the Commissioners at large. A long and animated discussion took place on this resolution, which was at length carried by a considerable majority, and the meeting broke up.

SUSSEX The workmen employed in forming the tunnel under the road at Kemp Town, near Brighton, discovered numerous teeth and bones, which were at first supposed to be part of human skeletons, but, upon being examined by a gentleman conversant with sucha subjects, were ascertained to be. long to the horse and the elephant. Similar organic remains are commonly found in diluvial beds, like that on which Brighton is situated, and are evidently antediluvian remains.

The towa is built upon an accumulation of water-worn materials which all up a valley of the chalk. A short time since, the rib of a very large animal, supposed to be that of an elephant, was discovered in the bank on the west side of Shorcham har. bour. Mr. Mantell has discovered in the iron. sandstone of this county, the teeth of an berbivorous reptile of a gigantic magnitude. This animal approaches nearer to the Iguana of Barbadoes, than to any other recent lizard; and it is proposed to distinguish it by the name of Iguano-saurus. Detached parts of the skeleton, as vertebræ, thigh bones, &c. have also been found, of which a particular account will be laid before the scientific public. Mr. Mantell has part of a thigh-bone in his possession, which there is every reason to conclude is referable to this animal ; its size is so great, that, upon a moderate computation, the individual to which it belonged must have equalled the elephant in height, and been upwards of sizty feet long.
