Accident to Admiral Paget. - An accident occurred in Portsmouth harbour, on Thursday, which had nearly deprived the Naval service of one of its best and most esteemed officers, The Hon.Admiral Sir Charles Paget was on board his yacht, the Emerald, proceeding out of harbour, intending to go to Cowes, when it was bIowing nearly a gale of wind. The yacht had slipped her moorings, and was in the act of wearing, when a coiled-up rope caused Sir Charles to slip, when the peak downhal caught him round the middle, and the other part of the downhal caught the mast head of a fishing smack, which tightened the bight round Sir Charles, and carried him over the bulwark of the yacht, and threw him into the water. The man at the helm let go the tiller, to save him, and a small skiff (belonging to Capt.Charles Inglis, of the Victory), instantly put off from the Victorine, and the man succeeded in catching hold of Sir Charles just as he had lost sensation; but the skiff was so small, the man could not take him in; he therefore held Sir Charles's head out of the water, till further assistance came from the Victory, and some fishermen who were near the spot: when he was taken on board the Victory, and shortly after brought on shore to the house of Admiral Sir George Martin, where every attention was shewn him. As Sir Charles spit blood in the course of the evening, sixty ounces of blood were taken from him, since which, we are happy to say, he has been much better. His knee pan is split, which will probably cause his confinement for some time.

Funeral of the Rev.Dr.Bogue.- On Tuesday the 1st inst. the remains of Dr.Bogue were removed from Brighton to Gosport, attended by a deputation of the London Missionary Society, and many other friends. Marks of respect for his memory were manifested by the inhabitants of Brighton, and of the several towns through which the procession passed. At Fareham, the deacons and trustees of the Chapel in which the deceased officiated, joined the procession, in mourning coaches, and several private carriages followed in their train; about a mile from Gosport, the body was received by the Church and Congregation over which the deceased had presided, as well as by the students of the seminary under his care; by whom it was conducted to the vestry-room adjoining the Independent Chapel, in Gosport, where it was deposited for the night. On the following morning, the remains of Dr.Bogue were conveyed into the Chapel, of which he had been Minister nearly half a century, when a funeral oration was delivered by the Rev.John Griffin, of Portsea, amidst the tears of a crowded auditory. At twelve o'clock the funeral procession moved towards Alverstoke, and on reaching the new burial ground, the funeral service was read by the Rev.Henry Aubrey Veck, and the procession returned in the same order that it came. In the evening a funeral sermon was preached by the Rev.Dr.Winter, when the Chapel was crowded to excess, and multitudes were prevented from gaining admission. During the day the shops and houses of the inhabitants were closed, and all seemed desirous of expressing their esteem and veneration for the memory of the deceased.

FataI Accident.-On Thursday evening, about ten o'clock, as Count Woronzow and his Secretary were returning to town from Richmond, (where the Count had been on a few days visit to Lady Pembroke,) upon their reaching Kew-green, It being very dark, the coachman, not observing a narrow gutter which borders the road, drove the horses so near to it, that one of the wheels of the carriage came in contact with a post at the side of the gutter, and the sudden jolt threw him and a footman who was sitting with him, off the box. The coachman fell between the horses, which, not withstanding, continued at a steady pace, passed the bridge, and through the turnpike gate, which was left open, and turned towards Brentford, but were there fortunateIy stopped by two men. The coachman had got entangled in the reins and was found dead between the fore wheels: the footman's arm was broken, and his shoulder dislocated, but he joined the carriage afterwards. The Count returned to town in a post chaise. The body of the deceased was conveyed to the Waggon and Horses, Old Brentford, where a coroner's jury held an inquest on Saturday, and returned a verdict of "Accidental Death." The deceased was a very steady and sober man, and had been forty years in the service of the family, His name was William Findlay.

MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE. -- On Friday evening, at Wells, a lad having filled his pockets with squibs, &c. was amusing himself with them, when some person (unknown) set fire to a projecting rocket, which instantly communicated with the rest, and caused the boy to be so dreadfully burnt, that he died on Monday.

SPRING GUNS.- On Tuesday week, a poor woman was shot by a spring-gun whilst getting acorns in the Link Wood, Bradfield, belonging to T.Mosely, Esq.

A butchers wife of the name of Hewer, was on Tuesday morning found dead in her bed at Frome.

Rail Roads and Steam Carriages.- The strides which steam is making in the economy of the country, are more gigantic and surprising than those who are domesticated at a distance from its immediate operation imagine; but the capability of the locomotive engine to travel with ease and safety with a weight of ninety tons in its train, at the rate of eight miles an hour, has been fully proved by the opening of the Darlington and Stockton rail-road. The engine in this case, travels over twenty-five miles seven times a day, making one hundred and seventy-five miles a day's work, and ninety tons, consuming seven tons of small coals each day. The engine will cost 600.

Monday, Novemeber 14, 1825.

A Meeting of Gentlemen concerned in the Mendip Collieries, and others interested in the Rail Roads, was held at the Old Down Inn, between Bath and Wells, on Wednesday the 9th inst. There were about sixty most respectable gentlemen present, the Hon.Capt.Waldergrave in the chair.
The Hon.Chairman stated, that the present exorbitant price of coal in the vale of Blackmoor, imperatively called for the adoption of the scheme, as highly beneficial to the public at large, and the poorer classes in particular; that the enormous sum of 3. per ton was the average price of coal in that district, and that by means of the new rail-road, coal could be rendered at about 30s. per ton, and still afford a handsome remuneration, both to the proprieter of the mines, and to the holders of shares in the Rail-Road; that its feasibility could be proved; and lastly, that it was calculated that one penny per ton per mile would produce a revenue little short of 13,000. per annum, which would be equal to a profit of more than 10 per cent. on the capitaI.
Capt.Whalley read a prospectus which pointed out the probable advantageous results of this measure, and also the expenditure requisite for its being carried into effect - that the distance from Radstock to Poole, along the intended line of road, was about 80 miles, which, at the rate of 3,000 per mile, would require a capital of 240,000. and allowing 2000. more for lee-way, would make up a sum of 260,000. to be raised in 2600 shares of 100. each.
H.Day, Esq. produced a letter which he had received from the Rev.H.F.Yeatman, recommending a union of interests with the Dorset and Somersetshire Canal Company, and expressive of his apprehensions that the clashing of interests would be very injurious to both companies.
After considerable discussion,
It was resolved, that a Rail Road, from or near the Collieries at Radstock and the neighbourhood, to Hamworthy, within Poole Harbour, to pass by or near the Towns of Frome, Warminster, Hindon, Salisbury, Shaftesbury, BIandford, and Dorchester, would be of the greatest advantage to the place's and districts through or near which it shall pass, and be productive of essential benefit to the public at large; as, by means of the Rail Road and Canals already made between Radstock and the river Avon, at Bath, an expeditious and cheap inland communication would be made between Bath and Bristol and Poole Harbour.
That a Company be formed for the purpose of effecting this great national communication under the denomination of the "Radstock, Shaftesbury, and Poole Rail Road Company."
That the Capital of the Company be 250,000. and that the same be divided into 2500 Shares of 100. each.

The Rev.Eustace Carey, of Calcutta, will on Sunday the 20th inst. preach at Brown-street Chapel, in this city, on behalf of the Baptist Society; he is a nephew of the venerable Missionary so well known as the pious and learned Professor of Oriental Literature, at the College of Fort William, in Calcutta; and President of the New College in Serampore. Our journals, in past years, have given powerful testimony to the value of that Mission, which on the present occasion invites public patronage: a Mission, which promises to pour forth on the population of Asia, not only the stores of its own intellectual researches, but the pure light of the Christian faith, and the attendant blessings of moral cultivation.

On Friday last Castle Hill, Shaftesbury, presented a novel appearance; nearly a thousand persons were assembled to witness an extraordinary phenomenon. A Mr.Courtney undertook to fly from its summit to Enmore Green, a descent of about 200 feet: after keeping the populace in suspense nearly two hours, he prepared for this astonishing flight; but instead of boldly soaring through mid air, this timid unfledged biped began gradually to creep down the rugged declivity aided by the rope, when - direful event! the unstable support to which it was attached was raised from the earth, and the unfortunate soi-disant aeronaut was precipitated toward the vale below. Some of the indignant populace were ready to reward him, as he appeared to merit, by dipping him into an adjacent pond; but the majority on the summit resolved to give him a milder salute, and accordingly they showered upon him a volley of balls ('twas well they were but snow), obliging him to take shelter in a neighbouring public-house, from the disappointed multitude, who seemed quite disposed to repay him for his hoax.

Youthful Heroism and Presence of Mind.- short time since, at the mill which is contiguous to the village of Box, a youth 13 years of age, perceived his brother (about 4 years old) enveloped in flames, from having come in contact with one of the drying stoves. He immediately ran to him, caught him in his arms, and carrying him out, threw him into the mill-stream. Regardless of the pain he was suffering from the burns he had himself received, he hastened to the spot where he knew his infant brother would be stopped, plunged into the stream, brought him out, and thus saved his life.- They are now nearly well.

An inquest was held on Monday by Mr.Archer, bailiff of Corsham, on Wm.Hancock, of Box, who was killed on Sunday morning by a waggon at the Cross Keys. Verdict, "Accidental Death."

It may be recollected that a few months since the entire premises of Mr.W.Brown, of Uffcot Farm, were consumed by fire, supposed to be the act of an incendiary; and that a woman named Mary Ruddle was apprehended on suspicion of being the means of that calamity, but was discharged, from the want of sufficient evidence to warrant her committal. Since that period, her conduct has been towards Mr.Brown, that that gentleman has been lately induced to swear the peace against her; and, on her refusing to find sureties for her appearance at the next quarter sessions, she has been committed to the Old Bridewell, Devizes.

Several clothiers and weavers were convicted at Trowbridge about two months since, for paying their workmen in goods instead of money.
