ROMAN Boat.-In making the common sewer in London-street, Glasgow, from the part near the Cross down to the Molendinar Burn, there was found lately, at the depth of about ten feet, the remains of a boat lying in a bed of blue clay, which was covered and surrounded by fine sand, like that found on the shores of a navigable river or wide frith. Some of the clinker nails, used as fastenings, and found in the wood, which was fine oak, had become quite black from long immersion under the earth. The caulking appeared to have been wool dipped in tar. Some years ago, when the common sewer was cutting in the Stockwell, a boat of a similar description was found a little above Jacksonstreet; which would indicate that these two places where the boats have been found, were then the line of the shore of the frith, or bed of the river. These boats must have lain for many centuries in the places where they were found. The workmanship would indicate, that they were formed by a people considerably advanced in civilization. It is probable they were constructed by the Romans, about

the period of Agricola's expedition

into Caledonia, nearly 1740 years ago; at which period there seems little reason to doubt, that the greater part of the ground on which Glasgow now stands, and all the low lands on both banks of the river, to a considerable distance, were covered by the waters of the Frith of Clyde.

The Jesuits' College at Stonyhurst.-The Jesuits, when they were driven from Liege, and their property confiscated at the French Revolution, sought an asylum in England, and were presented by the father, or grandfather, of Mr. Weld, the present owner of Lulworth-castle, with the house and 100 acres of land, at Stonyhurst. They have since purchased 100 more. They are also tenants of no inconsiderable quantity of land, although the produce of the whole is insufficient for the wants of their establishment. The society consists of superiors, missionaries, and teachers. The first of these are few in number: they are the governors of the establishment, and have the whole direction of its affairs. One of them is called the president. The missionaries are
