* I was present at that portion of the last service which took place in this sacred edifice, and as this may be said to have completed its history, I may be allowed to put the particulars on record. During last week the walls of the city exhibited the following placard, “ St. Michael's Church, Crooked-lane, being about to be pulled down for the approaches of the new London Bridge, divine service for the last time will take place on Sunday morning next, 20 March, 1831, when a Sermon will be preached by the Rector, the Rev. W. W. Dakins, F.S.A. Chaplain to his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester, for the benefit of one hundred poor children of the Charity-schools of Bridge, Candlewick, and Dowgate Wards, Divine service to begin at 11 o'clock.” While the Curate, on the occasion above announced, was reading the secoud lesson, a piece of plaister fell from over the circular east window, and descended near Dr. Dakins, who was seated within the Communion rails; this occasioned some alarm in the congregation, but they were tranquillized by an address from the pulpit by Dr. Dakins, it being generally thought that some idle person had thrown a fragment of rubbish through the window, in which there appeared a broken pane. Further to compose the assembly, the ninety-third psalm was given out, during the singing of which a shower of loosened plaister descended over the Communion-table, the Rector hastily retired from his seat, the major part of the congregation rushed out in consternation, the communion plate was tremblingly removed from the apparently dangerous place by one of the attendants, and that portion of the assembly who had the presence of mind to observe do alteration in the perpendicular of the walls, or fissures in the ceiling, retired through the west door, giving their contribution towards the charity, which by this unfortunate occurrence must have fallen very short of expectation. The last words which were chanted on this venerable consecrated site, were not inexpressive of the stability of the Church uni. versal under all worldly mutations.

“ With glory clad! with strength arrayed,

The Lord that o'er all nature reigns,
The world's foundations strongly laid,
And the vast fabric still sustains.
