YOUTHFUL TIPPLERS.—The Liverpool stipen- diary magistrate received the following letter, which explains itself: "Liverpool, 2nd of January. To T. S. Raffles, Esq. Sir,—Enclosed please find Is. 8d. for the police-court poor-box, obtained under the following circumstance: A boy, about 10 or 11 years of age, came into my house last Sunday for a shilling's worth of rum. He also tendered a penny for the bottle. I asked him who it was for, and he said his mother. I told him to go for her, and he said she was ill. I then said he must bring his father. (I doubted him as he coloured very much.) He murmured a great deal, and I asked a person present to go for a policeman. He then ran away as hard as he could. On Christmas Day another boy came in, and asked for sixpennyworth of rum, also putting down a penny for the bottle. He said it was for a woman who was outside. In each case the money was put down on the counter first, and several boys stood at the corner of the street waiting for the boys who wished to buy the liquor. This shows how easily we licensed victuallers may get a bad name through these lads.—I, remain yours respectfully.—A LICENSED VICTUALLER. A CHAPLAIN ROBBED.—The ohlaplain to the Bishop of Lichfield, the Rev. F. 0. Beaumont, was set upon and robbed on the highway the other day. He had been officiating for the Vicar of Weeford, and was on his way back to Lichfield. At the time the robbery occurred—half-past one o'clock—three men advanced to meet him, one of them asking for money. Mr. Beaumont drew out his purse, and as he was doing so one of the gang Btruck him on the head with a stick and another snatched his purse. The three then ran away. Information has been given to the city and county constabulary, but up to the present time without result. THE FLAG OF HER MAJERTY'S SHIP ALERT, distinguished by having been planted in the highest north latitude ever known to have been attained, has been placed on public view at the Royal Naval Mtiwwm in Greenwich College,
