THE INTELLIGENCE CF THE TELEGRAPHS. (From the Globe.) The present management of tha telegraphs has suc- ceeded in familiarizing the public mind with most marvellous phenomena. Messages commonly arrive some hours after parcels sent by ordinary trains at the same time, and when they do come to hand they are not unfrequently so unintelligible as to be useless on account of the charming manner in which they have become mixed or mutilated but the following passage, which we cull from. an Irish contemporary, is a pecu- liarly choice specimen of the class of literature which the Marquis of Hartington hashad t he honour of intro- ducing to the reading public of the United Kingdom. We are unwilling to spoil the pleasure of perusal, but as the plot is rather embarrassing it mav be well to premise th"t it relates to the debate in the House of Lords on Thursday last, with other matters, and forms part of a London correspondent's letter to his Irish paper:â another adjournment of the Irish land debate in the Lords there were 2 remarkably good speeches last night both by Irishmen Lord cairns specially distinguished himself by an elaborate analysis of the entire mini, scheme & Lord athlumney contributing sonnd practical advice from Irish landloids point of view as to seat in the House of Peers on monday night & in all probability his first addre sin the here- ditary cbr wii) oe directed to thedefence of the Ecclesiastical titles act repeal bill private telegrams reed in London this ning states that the marquis of Bute was present yday in the manner in whthe measure ought to be accepted & acted upon in Ireland Gladstone announced changes in the English edu- cation bill are likely to leud to such opposition that an aban- donment of the measure late on in the session seems proba- ble the Irish Lord chan will take his the catholic cathedral of Seville at the grand ceremonies there annually celebrated on the pastoral of corpus chrititi the division on the sligo dis- franchisement bill carried by a large majority in corns will meet with some opposition in Lords. We could excuse this sort of thing while the work of the telegraphs was a. novelty to the new management; but it is really time that some trifling improvement should be displayed, if only for the sake of public sanity, more especially when the temperature is high and the dog days impending.
