HOME NEWS. The prospects of all the crops are exceed ingly favourable for the time of year. From April 1st to the 11th instant, the Exchequer receipts amouted to L80,474,752, as compared with £ 78,830,477 in the corresponding period of the last financial year. The expendi- ture thus far has been £ 77,808,987. On Saturday last the balance in the Bank of England was £ 7,025,897. At the Marlborough Police Court, London, on Monday, Mr George Hampden Whalley, M.P., appeared in answer to a summons charging him with having obtained goods from Messrs Jones and Dickens, of Regent-street, within four months after the filing of his petition in bankruptcy.âMr Humphreys appeared for the complainants, and Mr S. B. Abrahams defended Mr Whalley.âMr Humphreys made a statement to the* effect that the defendant ordered certain articles from Messrs Jones and Dickens, of Regent-street, and directed them to be sent to his residence, but that before all the goods had been delivered a petition for liquidation was filed by Mr Whalley. At this point Mr Abrahams interposed, and remarked that Mr Whalley had been compelled, on the advice of Mr A. S. Jonas, his solicitor, at a mo- ment's notice to file his petition in order to avert great loss and disaster to himself, but in doing this he had no idea of defrauding any creditor. Indeed, his solicitor, Mr Jonas, had gone to Mr Humphreys and offered to pay the money. His debts amounted to f66,000, while the assets were £ 250,000. A discussion ensued, and the case was adjourned, the magistrates consenting that the debt should be paid.
