De Beriot has written another letter to the Boroughreeve of Man- chester, praying him very earnestly to procure the disinterment of his late wife. Application was consequently made to the Clergy of the Col- legiate Church ; and it was ascertained that permission for the disin- terment would be given by the Chancellor of the diocese, unless a caveat was entered against it.
