FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT. — A boy, aged 14, named Albert Webster, whilst playing in the Atlas Works, Sheffield, ventured too near the rolls, and was caught. His right arm and leg were whirled off, and his body drawn in and rolled into a flat mass of flesh and bones. His mutilated remains were with diffi- culty removed from the machinery. THE Cape Argus states that the Prince of Wales is to be presented with an assegai taken from the Galekas. Captain Ward ell, of the East London Volunteers, recently addressed his men, stating he had Sflen the Governor, to whom he had presented, on account of the volunteers, three fine assegais, which bis Excellency had graciously received, and told tbe captain he would keep two as a valuable keepsake, and send one to the Prince of Wales for his Royal Highness's museum. DISTBESS IN WOLVEBHAJIPTON.—Consequent on the stoppage or partial cessation of the principal ironworks and collieries, the distress in this district continues to increase, and relief, in the shape of bread and oatmeal, was distributed recently at the Town Hall to about 530 families. Unfortunately the tickets for this relief had been distributed somewhat hurriedly, and consequently many persons obtained a share who were not entitled to it, whilst some of the worst cases were altogether passed over. The distribution was presided over by the Mayor, assisted by the aldermen of the different wards, and the clergy and ministers of the town. DISCOVERY OF GOLD IN SOUTH INDIA.— Mayfair says: The discovery of gold in South India, so long asserted by some Australian speculators, turns out to be a fact. In the coffee-growing district of Wynaad, sixty-two tons of the auriferous quartz, de- scribed as Alpha stone from Wright's level," has produced above thirty ounces of rich gold, or an average of nine pennyweights per ton. The gold has been bought by a Madras firm, and specimens of the quartz have been submitted to the Governor, the Duke of Buckingham and Chandos. The commissioner of the district has visited the works, and the result is that a company is projected to work the Alpha rock, with a capital of £150,000. A steady out-turn of gold, secured by capital and honest industry, would solve many of our most difficult Indian questions of finance and currency. ATTACK ON A CONSTABLE BY GAMBLEB8.- Five young men, who made a practice of going to Old Parkwood, near Sheffield, on Sunday afternoon to gamble, were disturbed by a constable, whom they assailed with a shower of stones, one of which struck him on the forehead, inflicting a wound down to the bone. The officer would have been killed had not relief opportunely arrived. The prisoners were sentenced to three and four months' imprisonment. IT fis NO SECBET, unfortunately, that the Cabinet is divided. The Prime Minister, the Secre- tary of War, and the Lord Chancellor are in favour, if not of immediately going to war, of, at any rate, Baying at once to Kusaia, in the most unmistakable manner, "Thus far you may go, and no further. Lord Salisbury, Lord Carnarvon, and Mr. Cross are of opinion that Russia's programme is not in the least injurious to England's interests; while Mr. Smith, the Duke of Richmond, and Sir Michael HICKS- Beach believe that the Government should take no decisive steps until the House of Commons has been sonsulted.—Hornet. ALLEGED SEBIOUS ASSAULT.—A man named John Glancy, residing in Westport, Edinburgh, was taken to Leith Hospital, suffering from a severe scalp round, and with bruises all over his body. Ho stated ihat between one and two o clock in the morning he ivas attacked by three men in the Eastern-road, by vhom he was kicked, jumped upon, and otherwise naltreated. So little hope was entertained of his 'ecovery that his depositions were taken in the course I' the day by Sheriff Hamilton and the procurator- fiscal.
