ATTACK UPON A LADY.-The Bombay papers report a disgraceful affair at Kamptee. A French lady, a renowned pianist from the Leipsic Academy of Music, visited the station for the purpose of giving a concert, and while taking a walk in the evening on one of the public roads two private soldiers of the 33rd D. W. Begiment attacked and maltreated her. The poor lady was helpless, and her cries brought a Government lascar to her assistance, and thus pre- vented further maltreatment. Upon the arrival of the lascar the men ran away. Both the ruffians have since been identified, and are now in prison awaiting trial. General Walker, commanding the Nagpore force, in his remarks in district orders, says: These men are a disgrace to the uniform they wear and number they bear, and such the Brigadier-General feels sure is the opinion of their comrades. Men who attack helpless unarmed women are sure to be wanting when called on to attack an armed foe." THOUSANDS or DELICATE CHILDRBN and consumptive persons are said to have acquired sound constitutions and permanent strength by taking that most agreeable and efficient steel preparation, Dr. Guinle's Steel Tablets, procurable of all respectable chemists, in boxes, or post free on receipt of postage stamps for Is. 1-id. or 2s. 9d. by (1..AllAn Chemist, Kilburn. London. THE BUBIALS DIFFICULTY.—The ratepayers of the parish of Brenzett, lying between Dungeness and Appledore, lately resolved unanimously to pur- chase an adaitional burial ground for the parish— which they did from the late Mr. Adolphus Kings- north, at a wet of £200. The Burial Board-the Rev. John N. Smith, the vicar, and the churchwardens —then unanimously petitioned the Archbishop of Canterbury to consecrate almost the whole of the land, leaving at the south-east side thereof a narrow strip unconsecrated, capable of providing for two rows of graves for those whose relatives are troubled by the religious difficulty." There are no chapels ef any kind en the ground, and the separation is only by a narrow path; the whole of the ground, consecrated and unconsecrated. being within the same ring fence, and nearly adjoining the parisn cnurch. This mode of proceeding would seem to form an easy solution ef the burial difficulty. Dr. Parry, Arch- deacon of Canterbury, as Bishop Suffragan of Dover, attended by the Bev. Canon Alcock, rector of Ashford and Surrogate, and by Mr. Hassard, the archbishop's registrar, visited Brenzett under a commission from hig Grace, and consecrated the ground. The Rev. S. H, Parkes, the rural dean, and many of the clergy and inhabitants of Romney Marsh were present, the weather being extremely ftoe. At 5 p.m. the same afternoon the first parishioner was interred in the new ground an aged woman of 97; so that residence in the Marsh is not adverse to long life.
