The City of London, it appears, is to lose next

year an estate worth 50,0001. a year. This is the estate of which Bunhill Fields Cemetery forms part, which was leased to them for seventy-three at a nominal rent, and now falls' back to the prebend of Fins-

, or its heirs,' the Ecclesiastical Commission. The loss is a seri- ous o e, but bat the Corporation can make it up. Let them apply the whole of their Parliamentary influence to the suppression of the gas companies now plundering and choking the public, and sell good gas at a reasonable price. The profit will amply-reimburse them, and they will earn a support from the citizens of London which' will materially help to preserve their privileges.
