It is conjectured that when the Obinaman got back to Singapore, he communicated With his fridnds, the prisoners, the fact of his losing his mon6y, and the r&>uH of the trial. At seven o'clock' the other evening >«M*ws °f two Chinese ships,' l^ing in the South ^pf lndia Deck, about twenty in number, armed wim«aarlingspikes, thick iron bolts, and a large iron nuVused as a sling shot, went to the house Of the pro- secutor, and beat him in a most brutal manner abont theheadandbedy. HieinjarMeat-e not expected to termmate fatally, but he itfina very weak state and unable to leave his bed.

Now THAT THE BROWN BOARD MODKI, of Cleo- patra's Needle is up, a good many people are not at all pleased with the site, just as a good many were not pleased with the Stephen's-green one, or, for the matter of that, would be with any site on the earth, or on the shores of the waters on the surface of the earth. The painter who exhibited his work in public and asked his discerning countrymen to explain their opinion on it is always a sad example of the uselessness of this kind of amateur con- noisenrship. And so it will be with the Egyptian pillar, if the Government goes on build- ing models and pulling them down to the end of the year. Nevertheless, it must strike anyone who has ever seen the venerable-looking, won, and rather corroded "Needle" itself, that it will contrast some- what tastelessly with the spick and span freshly-cut grfrJ granite of the Embankment.
