HOME-BHEWED BEER FOB JAPAN.—About four years ago M. Aoki, the Japanese Envoy at Berlin, requested, in the name of his Government, a firm of brewers in that city to take a young Japanese named Nakanava as an apprentice, in order that he might be thoroughly instructed in the art of making lager-beer. They consented-, and when the young lad was con- sidered sufficiently skilled in brewing they passed him on to another houses where he was taught everything connected with the preparation of malt. The whole apprenticeship lasted about three years. 'Meantime the Japanese Government had built and fitted up at Tokio a large brewery, according to plans sent out from Germany, and on Nakunava's return home he was placed in charge of it. The intention or the Government is that it shall serve as a school for the practical training of young Japanese in the mysteries of brewing. It remains to be seen whether the intro- duction of this new branch of industrial learning will tend to promote the moral development of the Japanese. TOWNS ON PAPEB.—The Natal Mercury says in a recent number: "The sagacious providence of oar rulers has anticipated the possible needs of the future by laying out areas for future cities all over the country. This is the case in most new countries. Governments are ambitious, and power is apt to drift towards centres. Landowners are acquisitive, and townships attract population. Few of our readers probably know how many paper towns there are in Natal New Glasgow, Mount Moreland, North and South Barrow, Scottberg, Port Shep- stone, and Murchison. on the coast; Lidgetton, Fort Nottingham, and Weston, up country, are all places represented by specific mention on the map but by only a solitary building, if even that in reality. There are plans of them all to be found in the Surveyor-General's office, with even streets market-place, and sites left for church, gaol, and post-office but they are little more than names. As they have in every case been selected with due regard to convenience of situation and accessibility of water supply, they present very suitable localities for set- tlement. Experience shows the utility of establishing centres of population as means of filling up a district. Provided the right class of settlers can be got hardy' frugal, contented and industrious people—no better way can be devised to impart a substantial value to these townships than the planting upon them of co- operative colonies of self-sustaining, hard-working villagers." MR. MITCHELL HENRY, M.P., AND HIS TENANTS.—Mr. Mitchell Henry, M.P., has written to the Irish papers declaring that since he purchased the estate of Kylemore, county Galway, not a hearth- stone or roof has ever been removed, and that twenty families have been added to the rental. This cate- gorical denial of the statement by the local Roman Oatholic curate is confirmed by the parish priest of Ballinapal, who says that the charge against Mr. Henry is groundless in fact and startling in its utter untruthfulness. A PAPAL HIERABCHY IN SCOTLAND.—The other evening a meeting in opposition to the estab- lishment of a Papal hierarchy in Scotland was held in the hall of the Protestant Institute, Edinburgh under the presidency of Mr. Ferguson, of Kinmuodv' There was a large attendance.

Eesolutions were adopted to the effect that the establishment of Z Popish hierarchy in Scotland, designed as it was for ;he exercise of foreign juriadiction, professedly reli 5ious, but mainly temporal, was a contravention of rnr laws and a danger to our religion, and that the langer springing out of the Popish hierarchy ren lered it the duty of true Protestants to oppose itl establishment and to enlighten the whole community; >n the subject. Previous to the meeting a conferen™ >f delegates from different parts of the country JZ leld, at which it was agreed to make arrangements or holding public meetings on the subject in the i owns throughout Scotland. ™ THE UNIVERSITY OE EDINBUBGH.—A letter las been received from the Treasury, intimating that E20.000, the first instalment of the grant by the Go! 1 ernment for the buildings of the University of Edin 1 urgh, will be inserted in the estimates for thi- 1 ear. 10 1 Suspicious DEATH AT WABBINGTON An 1 iquest was held at Warrington on the body of Sarah 1 iuson, an infant, which had been exhumed in r ccordance with an order frein the Home Secretary ( n account of a suspicion that it had not died a ] atural death.
