Fur tlie purpose of stftiag, he uses a frame, about 6 or 7 feet long, two leet wide, and o inches deep, into which is fixed another frame or frames, with silk bottoms, through this by means of a velocity obtained by mechanical contrivances, tlie mustard is passed. The sieve is to be supplied by a hopper, placed al>ove ft, and to this Mr. Shotwcll lays an exclusive claim. The sieve should be so huug that it may conveniently be brushed under the bottom, or brushes may be fixed tlie length of the sieve, to be moved by crank, by machinery, or any other way at pleasure.

Oisei-vntions. —The advantages described as belonging to this invention are, 1. That a considerable quantity of Renoine mustard is obtained from otf'il, hitherto deemed of little value. 2. An article possessing a considerable degree of pungency, is ulitaiued Iron) the brown mustard-seed, ut a small expeuce. 3. By connecting a hopper or other apparatus, with the upper end of the sieve, Hie labour of supplying the sieve with meal is very much lessened, and the supply is more regular than when done by ■'t hand; and by tiling long brushes under

MR. JOSEPH Cuff's (WHITECBAPEI.,) for a new Method of slaughtering Cattle, Ac.

The title of this specification mentions cattle of divers descriptions, from oxen, downwards, but the drawings are confined to hogs. We have carefully examined the specification; and from that and the included drawings, we understand that Mr. CulT keeps the animals to ba killed in a certain kind of pen in the slaughter-house, and that two persons arc employed in the business, or perhaps three; the occupation of one person, K to catch tbe beast, or by some other manoeuvre to fasten a rope or hook, on one or both of its hind legs; another person is then by means of a wheel and pulley, or other apparatus, to draw the animal up to a certain height, and a third person is to fix the rope on the tenter hooks, and while thus suspended with its head downward*, the animal's throat is to he cut.

Remark.—The Patentee professes that the meat is better by tins mode of slaugl tering, than by the usual methods. Wa must, however, observe, that, if its suppo. sed advantages arise from the mere position of the animal when killed, the invention is not now; it Iras been practised in n village within a mile north of London, some years. Nor do we see that there ran be any novelty in the ap paratns for dragging up the animal suspending it by its hind legs, so as warrant an exclusive claim. We are from a view of the invention, induced tu believe that the'method will, in practice, be found much more cruel, thmi that usually adopted; and therefore cannot merit tbe applaose and patronage of the public, who should endeavour to mitigate the sufferings of creatures whose lives are sacrificed to* supply their v

His hearth-brush is now frequently seen in respectable houses; the object of which is, i\e our readers will recollect, by means of a neat apparatus to conceal the brush parr, except at the time of using. The principle of the invention belore ns is something similar, and the spreading part of the umbrella is, when Dot used as an umbrella, parasol, esc. concealed in a walking-stick. The con

trivance adopted is very simple, and well explained by the drawings attached to the specification. Not having seen one of the umbrellas, we cannot speak positively on the subject; but we should be led to suspect that the cane, stick, &c. which is to include the head of an umbrella, must itself be almost too large for the purpose of walking with.

colouring, of the Venetian; pathos, of the Lombard; or humour of the Flemish; each of these varieties is discoverable in the different artists of the English school. With West, Copley, Singleton, Fusoli, Howard, for the first; with Shoe, Lawrence, Wtstall, Turner, DeLotitherbourg, for the second; wiihOpie, Northcote, Howard, Londsdale, Phiilips, for the third; with Wilkie, Sharp, Cook, Mulready, for the next; with the first landscape and animal painters that ever dignified any school of art; with the schools for design and drawing, that the Royal Academy and Town Museum present; with the school for colouring, that the Patriotic Institution now under notice lias founded; what may not he hoped from the future exertions of the British school of the Fine Arts? The limits of this department will not admit even the titles of all the pieces worthy of notice in this exhibition; many of them have been exhibited before at the Royal Academy, and are consequently well known to the public.

Taking them from the catalogue seriatim : — Richard Sass's Shipwreck (No. fl.) displays much knowledge of effect, and is an excellent picture. The Academician Westall's Eelisarius (No. 19) is not unworthy of his fame, but is not equal to some of his other pieces in the present collection. The Peasants of Subiaco in the F.cclesiastical Slates, returning from the Vineyard on a Holiday, by H. Howard, R. A. is an admirable picture, well composed and forcibly coloured. The Zephyr (No. 31) by Westall, is beautifully delicate; and a Holy Family, by the same Master, in the highest style of excellence. The Death of Nelson, by Devis (No. 70), is a national picture of such merit a, makes every British heart glow: it suffers from its situation amidst so many brilliant pictures of a different character, and from the injudicious colour of the walls. Never was n story better told than this. The heroic, the regretted'Nelson is in his last moments; every man is in the act of doing his duty ; and everv figure is a nse*ful accessary to the affecting tale.—There is a tolerably successful effort at humour in Cosse's picture of a Pfrsateof the 17 th Regiment endeavouring to Mist a Tailor (No. 73); but a little more attention to the model, and a higher degree of finish, will enable this artist to pursue such subjects with more effect.—Cook's Ct/mon nd (No. 93) must not be passed over; it it an admirably well com.

posed picture, the vis comica is excellently kept up in the figure of the foul of nature, whose gaping mouth and stupid eyes are so truly expressed, that it would he impossible lo mistake the love-struck idiot.—Drununond's Deserted Milk Maid (No. 101) possesses much merit, but there is too much affectation of colouring in this, as well as in some others of the same artist.—Barker's il/««irtc(No. 105) is horror personified; it would serve to bring men to reason (torn the revels of Bacchanalian debauchery, or seduction.—The first Navigator (No. 113), by Howard, is a fine idea; it possesses the rare merits of grand composition, and a chaste unaffected tone of colour. Atkinson's Cossacks (No. 114) is a spirited characteristic design, though but slightly finished. Poor Freebairn's posi humous work of the Temple of the Sun is eclipsed by none in the rooms.

Mr. now Lieut.-Colonel Congreve, the ingenious inventor of the Fire-rockets, that proved so destructive to the metropolis of Denmark at the commencement of the present war, and so essentially contributed to our success in the expedition agninst that Power, is here represented in whole length, with a fixed and earnest attention directed to the flight of a rocket, which has just reached aVove tbe picture, and from the tail of which nil the light proceeds that illumines his figure. Copenhagen on fire makes up the distance, and several attendant figures employed in preparing or discharging the destructive engines, form the accessaries of the picture.'—Sir Joshua Reynolds has been much and justly praised for the dignified character with which he enrobed Lis dor* traits, and his Lord Heathfield might be mentioned as one possessing the higliest claims to this praise. Mr. Lonsdale he*, in this very interesting pictare, adopted the same principle, and with the greatest success; for instead of being ourj tbe dull delineation of the human iocs on canvas, he has by this, M well u in many other well-known portraits, pm»ed | himself • truly i !;;•> iphical painter; The management of the drawing of the figerej-ITOrpeueiraiiriii, mind, ami depth of thought, in the phv
