The Marquis of Townshend writes to the Daily Telegraph, with reference to the coming Thanksgiving service" at St. Paul's. He thinks the present "an oppor- tune moment to consider how the thankofferings of the day may be directed, so as most appropriately and per- manently to keep green the memory' of the solemnity and its cause." He submits that this would be best ac- complished by devoting a portion of such offerings to the succour of the siclf and convalescent in the land. rhis would be giving an interest in the offerings of the day to those who have something in common with the Royal sufferer." His lordship instances the sea-side Convaiescent Hospital at Seaford as an institution conferring immense blessing on the sick poor and recommends an extension of such beneficial homes to the thought and care of the • congregations at the present time." THE LIVINGSTONE EXPEDITION.—The Corpora- tion of London has, on the motion of Mr. Alderman Lawrence, M.P., contributed 100 guineas towards the expenses of the expedition in search of Dr. Livingstone. The names on the back of Sir Selwin Ibbetson's Licensing Bill are (beside that of the hon. baronet) those of Mr. Heacllam, Mr. Goldney, and Mr. W. H. Smith. Father Gratry, who has just died in Switzerland, was born in 1805. He was not at first intended for the Church, but entered it in 1832. He was greatly distin- guished for his attainments, and became Professor in the Sorbonne and a member of the French Academy. During the sitting of the (Ecumenical Council Father Gratry wrote in strong terms against the dogma of. Papal Infalli- bility, but subsequently recanted these opinions, and con- formed to tho Ptcrw of the Vatican.
