Loss OF A CARGO OF CURRANTs.-Information has been received at Lloyd's that the well-known fruit trading steamer Oriana, belonging to the Loudon Steamship Company, loading fruit at Catacola, Greeje, had stranded on Catacola Point in leaving port in stormy weather, and would probably become a wreck She had about 100 tons of currants on board. The telegram states that all on board were saved. A later r telegram to tbo owners stated that the steamer had broken in two, and is a total wreck. Guards were placed by the ship to protect the salvage. The Oriana i registered 970 tons gross, 724 tons net, and had re- ceived the highest class at Lloyd's. She was built at Newcastle in 1867.

A FAMILY FEUD IN IRELAND.âAt Oappa- white, county Tipperary, a few days ago, a family feud broke out at a funeral amongst persons all of the name of Ryan, and all more or less distinctly related to each other. War whoopaâor, in the language of the country, wheels "-were uttered and attacks were made by the people upon each other with stones in the fist. Finally, one of the Michael Ryans received a stab in the abdomen and died. An inquest has been held on the body of Michael, and a verdict of homi- cide returned against some person unknown.

THE MEETING OF PARLIAMENT.âThe an- nouncement that both Houses of Parliament will meet on the 17th of January for .the despatch of busi- ness has excited, says the Guardian, much curiosity, and not a little misgiving, with regard to the nature of the business to be despatched. It is not likely that England will before that date have been committed to war with Russia, and will then be called on to meet the consequent expenses. Nevertheless, the appre- hension is widely entertained that Lord BeaeonBfield is using his influence with his colleagues, and perhaps with an illustrious personage who is ubove parties and Cabinets, in favour of the idea that the time is at hand, if it has not absolutely come, when defence of British interests must assume a distinctly wart ike form. But unless other European Powers see their way to mediation, no obvious good can result from the armed interference of England. If the Czar and the Sultan are disposed to continue at war with each other, the English Cabinet cannot force them to peace if they wish to make peace with each other, the English 0, biuet will be unable to pro- long the war; if Lord Beaconsfleld flatters him- self that he can achieve much by throwing, as far as he can, the weight of England into the Turkish scale, he may find his efforts powerless against the vis inertias of Europe and it should not be for- gotten that the vis inertia of nations, more especially of empires, can, like their armies, be speedily made active and mobilised. Tremendous evils might result from a determined attempt to appropriate, as prin- cipally, if not exclusively, English in their bearing, questions which, as Mr. Cross observed early in May, are not only of English, but of European interest. It is premature now, and we trust that it will be equally unseasonable on the 17th of January, to regard war as, for good or evil, inevitable.

BRIBING A PHYSICIAN.âThe Paria correspon- dent of the Times says that a man named Bernard, notorious for robbing luggage vans, was brought before the 11th Chamber charged with attempting to bribe the physician at the Bicetre Asylum. He has been repeatedly convicted of theft, but by simulating insanity has procured his. removal to asylums, and then succeeded in escaping. He sent the Bicetre doctor two English S5 notes to induce him to certify his insanity. He was brought up in a strait waist- coat, closely guarded, and talked in an incolaerent i Btrain of his property, ships, Ac., but the artifice failed, and he was sentenced to five years' imprison- ment. ment.

Boucicault, the proprietor and founder of the famous Magasms du Bon March6, died suddenlv on Tuesday night. M. Boucicault was one of the nota- bilities of modern Paris. Starting with a little linendraper's shop at a corner in the Rue du Bac, he succeeded little by little in creating the vast and most frequented establishment of the kind in the world. The Magasins du Bon Marche, which extend over an immense service, contain all the products of modern industry in the way of furniture and clothing, of objects for household use or of lux- ury. Without leaving them, one could, fit up a most elaborate establishment, even to the stables, for M. Boucicault allowed customers to make their choice from his numerous fine horses kept for his personal use or for that of the establishment. The Bon Marche bad its reading-room, art exhibition, free restaurant, hairdressing-rooms, concert-room, &c. The proprietor latterly employed more than 500 persons, and his premises WAre visited by more than 25,000 persons daily. His business had become immense, and to the last he re- mained the soul of this vast organisation. He is said to have left an enormous fortune; but what is better, he leaves the reputation of a man who never forgot his early struggle, and was ever a friend to the unfor- tunate.
