ARRIVAL OF SIR P. LUMSDEN. A demonstration of no ordinary significance oc- curred on Saturday evening at Charing-cross Station on the occasion of the arrival of Sir Peter Lumsden from Afghanistan. Although neither the precise date nor the time of the General's return had been pub- licly known, it was expected that he would travel by the tidal train from Paris on Saturday, and an im- mense crowd had consequently gathered inside and outside the station to meet him, and to accord him a reception which proved to be as gratifying to the General as it was unexpected. Amongst those on the platform were Sir Dighton Probyn, Field Marshals Lord Straithnairn, Lord Napier of Magdala, and Sir Patrick Grant, Lord Chelmsford, Sir Richard Cross, Lieut.-General Chetwynd-Stapylton, Colonel Gunter, M.P., Colonel Levett, M.P., Lord A. Paget, Colonel Nassau Lees, Sir Heron Maxwell, Sir Edwin Johnson, Mr. W. Lawrence, M.P., General Foster, Mr. Justice and Lady Stephen, Sir Charles Brownlow, Colonel Allen Johnson, Sir Richard Pol- lock, General Wyld, General Beynon, General Hunter Thompson, Sir John Strachey, General R. Strachey, Lord Rowton, Mr. H. Chaplin, M.P., Mr. Rowland Winn, M.P., Lord Crichton, M.P., General Wilkinson, General Sir F. P. Haines, Lieut.- General Sir H. Daly, General Walker, Mr. Sidney Herbert, M.P., Mr. Montagu Scott, M.P., Sir Sey- mour Blane, Sir G. Campbell, M.P., Lord Galway, Mr Monckton, M.P., Mr. Coleridge Kennard, M.P., General Sir A. Herbert, Sir Charles Mills, General Dick, Sir Owen Burne, Sir W. J. De Bathe, Sir F. Abel, Lord Rendlesham, Lord Massareene, Lord Coventry, the Misses Frere, Lord De Saumarez, the Earl of, Crawford and Balcarres, Lord Harlech, Mr. C. Lewis, M.P., Mr. D. Onslow, M.P., Lord Colville of Culross, Colonel Bushby, General Sir H. Green, Surgeon Major Stuart, Mr. M'Kinnon, Mr. Callan, M.P., Sir W. Hart Dyke, M.P., -Mr. Ion Trant Hamilton, M.P., Sir H. Drummond Wolff, M.P., and Mr. Yorke, M.P. The train steamed into the station at a few minutes after six o'clock, and Sir Peter's appearance at the window of the saloon carriage was the signal for round after round of enthusiastic cheering. The General was accompanied by Lady Lumsden, his brother Sir Harry and Lady Harry Lumsden, and Mr. Condie Stephen, who had gone to Paris to meet him. On alighting from the carriage Sir Peter Lumsden was warmly greeted by Sir Dighton Probyn, Lord Napier, Sir P. Grant, Lord Strathnairn, and many other friends, and the cheering was incessant as he entered his carriage and drove off. At the entrance to the station the crowd had by this time considerably increased, and their hearty greeting gave ample testimony of the popular appreciation of Sir Peter's services. General Lumsden was evidently much gratified with his reception, and repeatedly bowed his acknowledgments. Sir Peter Lumsden on Sunday afternoon received several congratulatory visits from officials and others at his residence. For the next few days Sir Peter will be engaged at the India Office ind elsewhere upon matters connected with his late mission in Afghanistan. Notwithstanding the trying work and travel he has experienced during the last six months, he is quite well and strong.
