The Globe is informed of the equipment of a Spanish expedition for the Sulu Archipelago, the object having connection, it is believed, with some indignities suffered by Spanish subjects. Dr. G. H. Davis, the Secretary of the Religious Traot Society, has been compelled, on account of impaired health, to retire for the present from all engagementsr and to seek rest on the Continent. The TimC8' Paris correspondent states that anxiety is felt as to Queen Isabella's health, the measles she has just had having left her in a state of prostration from which she seems to hare a difficulty in rallying. The Deutsche Zeitung says that on the Exchange at Trkste it is asserted that England is persuading the Khedive to purchase Tunis and Tripoli, paying the Porte one hundred millions of francs for them. At the Nottingham quarter sessions, a miner in the employment of the Clifton Colliery has been charged with defrauding the Colliery SickSociety. The prisoner was a member, and some time ago obtained a certificate of illness. He was then put on the sick list; but it turned out that while receiving the money he was working elsewhere. He was sentenced to twelve months imprisonment. The Scotsman gives an account of the condition of the Scotch coal miners which contrasts strangely with the condition of the same class two years ago.

According to the John Bull, the new Society for the Rejection of the Burials Bill" is already a great success, a very large number of clergy and laity in all parts of the country having joined,and expressed their hearty approval of the movement. At the Mansion House Police-court, London, a case of theft under peculiarly distressing circumstances has been decided by thf Lord Mayor. Thomas Allsopp was charged with stealing two geese from Leadenball Mar- ket, and evidence of the robbery having been given, it transpired that the prisoner's wife had only just been discharged from a lunatic asylum, that lie had been reduced from domestic affliction and other causes, over which he had no control, from master to a journeyman butcher, and by degrees to a state of starvation. The Lord Mayor discharged the prisoner, and allowed the wife a sum frofl^ ihe BMT Utf to relieve their imme- diate wants,
