Tisr LosT WnIAs..FISHERts.-On Wednesday last, seventeen of the seamen belonging to the Boai Accord, of Hiill, and the Alfred, of Bowness, arrived here by the steamer from Lerwick,,where they had been brought by the Peru, of Copen= hageti, from Egedismunde, a Danish settlement on the east side of Davis' Straits. The poor fel lows having lost all their clothing were dressed in the seal-skin attire of the Esquimaux, and, as was to have been expected, attracted no small attention as they passed along the quay. Some others of their shipmates went to Copenhagen, intending to go thence to 1-lull. Others (about nine of tslemn re.nained in Greeriland, therp not hleing accommnodation for the whole of them on lDiraL the Peru, They seem to have undergone tmuch privation, having had to remove from one settlement to another on account of the insuffi ciency of provisiois. The intelligencethey bring of the other vessels leads to favorable expecta tions. When the Beon Accord and the. Alfred were lost, on the 9th July, the other vessels in their.company, when last. seen, were a long way a -head of them, with open water half a mile dis- tant. Next day there was not a vessel in sight, they haviilg evidently got through to the west. They report that several vesselshad fish.

MODERN RUINS qo Tr?E tMODERNa ArftfEs. -A tew movement is making in Scotland towards a renewal- of the works, in imitatiois of the Athenianf Parthenon on the Calton-hill, of the northern capital. It is now proposed, we are, tqld, to cut away the church and sepulchre clauses from the act for its erection, and to devote the edifice at large to the purposes of a " Scottish Pantheon, or Gallery of 1-lonor, for the reception of monumental busts and statues of great and distinguishied men, whether statesmen, warriors, poets, ames of literature, science, artists, &c., not limited to Scotland, or even Great Britain, but open to men of all nations." The Iedimnentsand matopes, together with the friezes of the peristyle, are to be decorated with national sculpture, and the interior with paintings illustrative of Scottish and British achievements, in fresco, encaustic, or oil, as may be decided ipon. A new act is to be applied for, providing for the establishment of £5 shares to the amount of £150,000, itistead of £25 shares to the amount of £100,000, formerly proposed. The mere lay'ing of the foundations. for the original plan, and the rearing of the picturesque pillars which have so long stood on the hills'as at once an ornament and a rebuke, cost, it is said, no less a sum than £15,000.
