AURICULAR CONFESSION.-At the instanoe of the Council of the Church Association, a memorial in the following terms was forwarded to the Home Secre- tary for presentation to her Majesty: "Yeur memo- rialists. as sincerely attached to the National Church of their Fathers, view with deep alarm the efforts now openly made by a considerable number of the clergy to introduce into the Church of England the teaching and practice of auricular confession, which they regard as contrary to the teaching of the Word of God, alien to the doctrine, principles, and order of the Church, fraught with peril to its existence as an establishment and subversive of the principles of morality, social order, and civil and religious liberty. Your memorialists, therefore, humbly pray that your Majesty, unto whom the chief government of all estates of the realm, whether they be ecclesias- tical or civil, in all causes doth appertain, will be graciously pleased to use all the influence at your Majesty's command to repress the practice of auricular confession which is so rtpugnant to the conscience and feelings of this Protestant country." The signatures to the memorial number 401,442, and include the Maharajah Duleep Singh, seventy five noblemen, among them the Dukes of Leeds, Man- chester, Sutherland, Wellington, and Westminster, thirty-seven ladies of title, thirty-nine baronets, ninety- three members of Parliament, four deans, four arch- deacons, thirty canons, 3286 other clergymen, nume- rous magistrates, bankers, merchants, officers. and others.

It is now simply superior." And how its superiority is advertised Girls' pictures are singled out for effusive laudation in every exhibition of the season, from that of Burlington House to those of the Sampler and Slate-pencil Association, and the young ladies who serve up Venice with every species of sauce aux epinards, the gifted and fashionable vestals who paint portraits, and they who paint grenadiers, all have a whiff of incense from the thurifera. The critic may be pressed for room to express his reverence for Mr. Millais, and even find it difficult to get in the obligatory joke about Mr. Whistler. But the girls are sure of glorification, whatever may happen. In other spheres, too, a dazzling halo of publicity is made to surround the damsels who deign to abandon crewel work for more intellectual and re- munerative pursuits. The medals they take for trigonometry are photographed on our memory, as it were, by a perfect blaze of social and journalistic fire- works. Reviewers commit the usual stereotype peasantry about women's novels, and feminine readers remark, with a kind of exultation, that the authoress must be a very unpleasant person;" but that is only the dash of tarragon in the creamy mayonnaise of laudation. Let a man write as good a story at the same age, and he will be dismissed with a nod of cool approval, or, at most, ten lines of tepid encouragement. But even the glorifica- tion of girls as monsters-as the rose-trees that yield toadstools-is excessive and absurd. Few girls are half as monstrous as they would like to appear, and the majority grow simply the smallest of dog-roses. It is only our shouts of wonder that create an impression that the growth is in any way abnormal. In fact, the species of professional and practical gallantry which has superseded mere profitless chivalry gives girls the immense start in life's race, and then leads them to think that it is their swiftness wins. We parade the fact that a girl has begun to study the law as noiselessly as though she were already Lord Chancellor. It is so marvellous ih our eyes that a girl should be reading Adam Smith, when she might care for nothing beyond Miss Braddon without disgrace, that we immediately publish to the world that she must be an Adam Smith herself. When we come to think of the generation of wives and daughters such a galant system of deduction is likely to breed, we are inclined to believe that men will be quite sufficiently punished for their want of logic.- Truth- WOOD AND IVERY, LIMITED (J.

TREsPABB.-The law carefully protects a man's light and air, and surrounds him with strong defences if he is the owner of a building; yet it permits h's grounds, the privacy of which is now almost of as irreat a value, ti be iovaded with practical impunity. There is another serious onsideration. Through the gaps left by trespassers cattle may stray, perhaps a bull; now if that bull knocks down and injures any one, it is clearly unjust that- the owner should be held responsible. Cattle sometimes also stray on to rail- ways, and may cause fatal catastrophes to the pas- sengers. In fact, the truth is this: the value of pro- perty has enormously increased, but the legal pro- tection in respect of trespass has not mar-hed with the age. The railways enabling gentlemen occu- pied in cities to retain country seats, have made all England a garden, and the most part of it a private gard en. At the same time they have rendered even distant places liable to be suddenly invaded by crowds of strangers careless what damage they inflict, because in a few hours they will be beyond reach. To obtain a conviction for trespass—except in pursuit of game-it is necessary to prove positive damage. Now, a broken pennyworth of twigs, a trampled sixpenny worth of grass, is really not the question; it is absurdly beside the question. A fine of a shilling, after days of trouble with solicitors and witnesses, is simply a ridiculous remedy, not to mention the difficulty of identifying trespassers when time has elapsed. It is hardly too much to say that a man with two or three pounds in his pocket, to pay nominal damages and fines, might walk across a county just where he chose, provided he did not get too close to dwelling houses, and come within the charge of being on premises for an unlawful purpose -Live Stock Journal.
