POLITICAL GOSSIP. MR. HENIW WE-ITSIOBE, M.P. for Bridgnorth, and 'Sir 'Graham Montgomery, M.P. for Peebleshire, will be, it is stated. Lords of the Treasury. A SUBSCRIPTION is in progress amongst the mem- bers of the Liberal majority of the House of Commons for the purpose of presenting a testimonial to the Right. Hoc. Henry Brand, M.P., late Secretary of the Treasury, iu. feoognition of his services in connection with the party for several years, THE Irish Times says:—The Right Hon. Francis SackburrH), Lord Justice of Appeal, is appointed Chancellor of Ireland. The infiuences brought to bear to prevent Mr. Brewster's appointment have 'therefore prevailed. We understand that Mr. Napier is to be aouointed Lord Justice of Appeal, and Mr. Whiteside" Lord Chief Justice. Mr. John Edward Walsh wil!. probably be the Attorney-General. 'IT is ASKED what Austria intends to do with the Iron "XUrcrvvTi "tff oIto ctiU intends to preserve that historical relic now- that the plains of Italy have slipped frora her grasp ? The Crown, in 774, was re- ceived by Charlemagne from Pope Adrian i. In 1452 it was oisrried'back to Rome, where it did duty at the coronation of Frederick IV., and in 1530 Charles V. ..placed it on his head.at Bologna. In May 1805, another conqueror seized upon it at Mil$m. At present it is in the hands of the Austrian s, who sent it to Vienna when war was declared in 1859. WE very much regret to learn that the Hon. F. Cal- thorpe, M.P., for East Worcestershire, has been in such a weak state of health that he has not been able to leave his room since the day following the division which overthrew the Rnssell-Gladstone Ministry. The hon. member has been threatened with an attack of diphtheria,; but all danger is now past, and he is mak- ing progress towards convalescence. Mr. Calthorpe was very unwell on the night of the division; but knowing the importance of the occasion he made it a point to be present, and in accordance with his pledges gave his support to the Government. THE Sunday Gazette says:—" The following mem- bers of the Outer Bar are about to be created Queen's counselMr. S. Prentice, Mr. Charles Pollock, M'r. R. Garth, and Sir George Honyman, of the Home Circuit; Mr. W. A. Muadell, of the Midland Circuit; and Mr. Dickinson, of the Chancery Bar. To this list it is more than probable that the names of Mr. T. Jones and Mr. J. R. Quain, of the Northern Circuit, will be added. The promotion of Mr. C. Pollock and Sir G. Honyman will vacate the posts of Tubman and "Postman" in the Court of Exchequer, and the appointments thereto will be in the hands of the new Chief Baron, Sir F. Kelly. The origin of these offioes is we believe, lost in obscurity. They, however, con- fer a right of pre- audience in the court over even the AttoiBGV-GorTierfti* 1 • ALTHOUGH the re-elections are now nearly over, several elections are still pending. The elevation of Lord Honniker to the peerage o, the United Kingdom and the promotion of Sir.. F*3l°1!11 bench creates two vacancies for East Sm,olk.One candidate has already aPPsa H,,miker.M.jo,|-T cSSS and is the son of Lord MenniKer. tive candidate will ba announcsd bo,,g for g0U4 Ramaid Kmghtley, one o. the m^d tood to be Northamptonshire, is also, it "u in that con- made a peer, and a vacancy wul f1'* h stituency! Sir William Hylton Jolhffe isi tc to™ Lord Hylton, and a vacancy will eensequen y Petersfield. Sir E. G. L. B. Lytton is to becomLord Lytton of Knebwortb, and a vacancy will ac ± g_ arise in Hertfordshire. Mr. Abel Smith has app as a Conservative candidate. The advantage » „ by the new Government in the unseating Mr. Campbell, the late Liberal member for Helston, has been neutralised by the rejection of lir. Patten at Bridgewater; and after allowing for vacan- cies, &o., the nominal Liberal majority obtained in July, 1865, would thus appear to have been only re- duced to the extent of only one v(.,te. Annexed is v. list of the new members of the House of Commons returned since the assembling of the present Parlia- ment :—Lord J. Hay, Mr. Candlish, Mr. R. Arkwright, the Hon. G. Denman, the Earl of Brecknock, Mr. M. Wyvill, Mr. H. A. Herbert, Mr. M. Staniland, Mr. H. Whitmore, Sir E. Lechmere, Mr. Eckersley, Mr. J. Goldsmid, Mr. J. E. Gorst, Mr. C. Capper, Sir J. Hay, the Hon. Mr. Lascelles, Mr. R. Eykyn, Mr. Edwards, Mr. B. Osborne, Lord Amberley, Mr. D Pordyce, Lord Eliot, Mr. M. Chambers, Mr. T. B. Hildyard, Mr. R. Dimsdale, Mr. R. B. Brett, and Mr. P. Vanderbyl. Mr. Vanderbyl, who has just entered the House, unsuc- cessfully contested Great Yarmouth a year since.
