1THE COURT. --
1THE COURT. THE Queen is still at Osborne. Prince and Princess Christian have left her for a season, having proceeded on a Continental tour. At Paris they are the guests of Lord and Lady Cowley. From France they go to Switzerland. The Owl revives a rumour which has for some months been suspended, that the Prince Leopold's health is not at all satisfactory. Indeed, he is so unwell as to require the constant attendance of his medical adviser. We trust the Owi- for once speaks without authority. • Aii. THE Prince and Princess of Wales, with Prince Albert Victor and suite, left London on a visit to her Majesty at Osborne-house on Monday. THE Prince and Prinoess.of WALEA and the Duke of Edinburgh attended the review at Wimbledon on Sa- turday. T» THEIR Royal Highnesses the Prince and Prmcess of Wales will honour the Duke and Duchess of Richmond with their presence during Goodwood Races, which commence on the31st of this month. His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh during the past week took up his residence at Clarence-house, St. James's. PRINCE TECK had an interview with the Emperor of Austria, and tendered his services. The offer was graciously received, but declined under the circum- stances of the recent marriage, and the Prince and Princess have returned to town. A MUCH more convenient arrangement, as regards the public, has been made in the time for showing the State apartments of, Windsor Castle. Hitherto they were opened from 1 till 4 p.m.; henceforth they will I be opened from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the summer and in winter, on the usual days-viz., Moxday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. I
POLITICAL GOSSIP. -
POLITICAL GOSSIP. FENIANISM seems to be gradually ceasing to attract attention in the United States. The leaders of the movement are keeping quiet, with the exception of Stephens, who, in a late speech, denounced Roberts and Sweeney and the entire company of Canadian raiders as traitors to the Irish cause. They, in turn, have Taried the entertainment by denouncing Stephens as a swindler, and by publishing a letter from John Mitchell, in which that notorious plotter deolares that he received from America and transmitted to Stephens for the service of the Irish Republic" no less than 75,000 dollars. It is scarcely necessary to say that of this sum no trace has been discovered, Mr. Stephens's "FflCret service" having swallowed the whole of it. BY the elevation of the Right Hon. Sir William George Hylton Jolliffe to the Peerage, by the title of Baron Hylton, of Hylton, the a-ffeotionate sentiment of the North will be gratified. The revival of an ancient dignity is most pleasing-a dignity over which the historian of the bishopric fondly lingers on hia pleasant pages when he comes to "the castle that stands low and sequestered in the va^a of the Wear," and traces the fortunes of the fasniiy whose illus- trious name it bears. Mr. Hylton Longstaffe, the historian of Darlington, devotee a chapter to the old Saxon family. The heirs of the Barons of Hylton are the Jollifies, and in the late member for Putersfieid, therefore, the ancient dignity is fitly restored. His eldest surviving son, Mr. Hed worth Hylton Jolliffe, who was at Alma and Inkerman, and in the Balaklava charge, has a seat in Parliament as member for "Vd!s and he derives both his Christian names from families of the county-palatine. AT the next election for the Denbigh boroughs the present representative, Mr. Townshend Main waring, who voted with the Adullamites, will be opposed by Mr. Watkin Williams, the barrister, who is a native of Denbighshire, well known, from his contributions to the press some years ago, as a staunch Liberal and an earnest advocate of religious liberty. The Carnar. vonshire Herald says that Much and highly as they esteem Mr. Mainwaring, their duty, principle, and country demand that they should readily recognise and support the claims of Mr. Williams." The Wrex- ham Advertiser says that in a published letter from Mr. Mainwaring to Mr. Watkin Williams, the former quietly accepts the challenge, and is apparently proud that he has found a foeman worthy of his steel. He says: If I have an antagonist at the next election, I hope it may be yourself, for if I win I shall have sained a victory over an opponent »» rappee's Boroughs," which il has BO long been ray pricfe £ 0 represent, will have a representative of whom they may be justly proud." IN the Course of his election speeches at Cooker- J mouth, Mr. Lawson made frequent allusions to the sports held there from time to time. Referring to these allusions at the banquet at the castle after the election, the Hon. Percy Wyndh&m, M.P. for West Cumberland, remarked that he had been brought up to be very fond of sporta; he had always been, and always should be, fond of them; but he had always thought that in this country those who had plenty of wealth and leisure, and had had the advantage of a whM ,eduoati°ui got perhaps too much recreation, ofit ose wto were engaged in daily labour did not as they required. His intention was to rL £ lsV as far as he could do so; that was the IJ noting, kad thrown open the3e grounds to the Bporta of the country- (applause)-and that was a reaion why he should continue to do so i nH(A and had the power (continued ap- S nl such J°ry. haPPy should he be to see them f CC r181?9, Mr. Liwaon had alluded to J sports. Now, they had £ ea-, l; 'J f' *a ^at very eloquent speech which he del^e?Ah^°^ing, account for the taunt in a very He (Mr. W.) had another way of ac g it.

AT Bridgnorth Mr. Whitmore was returned on Saturday morning, without oppos^oE. THE Earl of Lonsdale, who is to have the vacant Garter, is 79 years of age, ana, though the junior knight) will be in years the> oldest member of the order. The senior knight is the Marqais of Exeter, who is 71 years old. „„ e THE Qazette announces that the Queen, as Sovereign of the Order of the Garter, has been pleased by letters patent to dispense with all the statutes and regula- tions usually observed in regard to IB Ertalla on, andto grant to his Royal Highness Prince « tian Charles Augustus of Schleswig-Holstein ^onder- i burg-Augustenburg, knight of the f f « 1 order, and invested with the ensigns^thereo nil 1 power and authority to exercisfe all rights ana p ivi- leges belonging to a knight companion or tne most £ noble Order of the Garter, in as fall and ample a man- ner as if he had been formally installed. THE committee of the Carlton have passed a reso- lution to allow the members of the Junior Carlton the 10 use of their club-house in Pall-mall during the alter- ations at their temporary club-house in Waterloo- place. As it is a rule of the Carlton* not to admit friends of members, the members of the Junior Carlton will have to dispense with this privilege whilst they use the Carlton Club-house, so kindly placed at their disposal. The new club-house of the Junior Carlton will be ready in about three years' time. THE petition presented by Mr. J. S. Mill to the House of Commons on the subject of female franchises has just been published. It bears the signatures of some 1,500 ladies, the address of each of whom is given. The petition sets forth that high authorities have laid down the principle that the possession of property carries with it the right to vote in the election of re- presentatives in Parliament; that the participation of women in the Government is consistent with the prin. ciples of the British constitution, inasmuch as women in these islands have always been held capable of sovereignty, and eligible for various public offices. The petitioners therefore pray the House to consider the expediency of providing for the representation of all householders, without distinction of sex, who possess such property or rental qualification as your honourable House may determine. THE election for North Leicestershire consequent on the acceptance of office by Lord John Manners took place at Loughborough, on Saturday, at eight o'clock ■"J the morning. The High Sheriff, C. H. Frewen, -ksq., was attending the assizes at Leicester; we understand he started by an early train for Lough- borough, and the moment the Exchange clock had strucK eight the election proceedings commenced, and in.less half an hour, and the Sheriff immediately returned to Leicester to attend on the Judge, aa the assize business was not over, thus travelling twenty-two miles and holding a county election in a very short space of time.
ITHE ARTS, LITERATURE, &c.j
I THE ARTS, LITERATURE, &c. A NATIONAL memorial to the late Captain Speke is to be erected in Kensington Gardens. It is to be massive granite, which will be brought, ready hewn and chiselled into shape, from Scotland, and then be piled up in blocks of different sizes in a pyramidical form to the eight of 34 feet. A MARBLE bust of the Prince of Wales has been placed in the Library of the Middle Temple. It is the gift of Mr. R. H. W. Ingram, of Tots worth-house, Slough, and sculptured by Mr. M. Edwards. The full- length portrait of the Prince of Wales is also to be placed in the library. THE Athenaeum says that one of the mosb extraor- dinary of the many mistakes that present themselves at the National Portrait Exhibition is that which describes No. 906 as portraits of the Cabal Ministry. It is, in fact, neither more nor less than a composition of portraits of musicians-doubtless those attached to the royal court—in their customary uniform dress. WE understand (says a contemporary) that the Lords of the Committee of Council on Education have deeided that the Exhibition of National Portraits at South Kensington will be closed on Saturday, the 18th of August, and that from Monday, the 6th of August, to the close the price of admission will be reduced to < 3d. each person; and children of schools for the poor, accompanied by their teachers, will be admitted on i payment of Is. for every 30 students and one teacher. THE southern transept of the pariah church of Mont. ( gomery, usually known as the" Lymore Chancel," or t Lymore Chapel," is now being restored at the cost of the Earl of Powis, to whom it belongs. This ( curioua old building contains several monuments of interest, both historical and archfeological. The ( largest is that of Sir Richard Herbert and his wife, I the parents of the first Lord Herbert, of Cherbury, and f of George Herbert, the Doet. I AN extract from the London Gazette, of the 26th ult., I has been published, giving an account of the regula- tions respecting the nature of the rewards and the composition of the juries appointed to the Paris Universal Exhibition, 1867. By this it appears that .£32,000 will be given in prizes, awarded by inter- national juries; of this sum ^81,000 is appropriated to the arts section in seventeen grand prizes of £ 80 each, thirty-two first prizea of £ 32 each, forty-four second prizes of £ 20 each, and forty-six third prizes of < £ ltj each. The distribution of the above will take place on the 1st of July next. Jurymen may compete for these awards. DURING the restoration of Barnstaple Church some singular discoveries have been made. Over the north arch of the tower, behind some boarding and under two coats of plaster, was found a mural painting in blaok outline, of which portions of three figures only could be preserved, owing to its mouldering state. They represent a queen and king crowned, supporting a hawk on his left hand-an emblem of nobility. When this discovery was first made, portions of other figures were visible, two or three on the left hand, and what has been called a negro on the right. Partly from the dress, and the long pointed shoe on one of the figures, it is supposed to date from the 14^h century. The subject undoubtedly represents the Last Jvidgracsit, interesting examples of which were of frequent occur- rence in Engliah churches daring the 14th century. ONE of the latest announcements of interest to collectors of Shakespeareana is a small volume of essays entitled Shakespeare's Delineations of In- sanity, Imbecility, and Suicide," written by Dr. A. O. Kellogg, assistant physician of the State Lunatic Asylum, Utica, New York. Part I. treats of the insane -Lear, Hamlet, Ophelia. &o. Part IL of the imbe- oiles-Bottom, Malvolio, Pistol, Bardolph, Nym, Dog- berry, Launce, Caliban, &o. Part III. of suicide- Othello, &c. These esaaya seek to exhibit a phase of the intellectual character of the groat dramatist which has been little considered hitherto. He might have added to the book a treatise on those who have been rendered insane by Shakespeare, and of the insane efforts to distinguish that in him that there is not—to make him out a tailor, a seaman, a lawyer, a. physi- cian, &c.

[ The Situation of Austria.
The Situation of Austria. What is certain is that, to stop the enemy who has hitherto been favoured by unheard-of good fortune, we have a strong and resolute army. A second batt -!o may turn the situation to our advantage, and crush Prussia overweening. May God make right triumph, and grant this satis- faction to our loyal patriotism! But it would be silly not to admit that the fate of the monarchy really depends on the result of the blow which is about to be struck. We have read in a Vienna paper that Austria, after the defeat of her army, would put a second, nay even a third, on foot, if the second succumbed. This is simply deceiving others and deluding oneself. By means of a colossal sacrifice, Austria has put herself in a position to try the fortune of war once more. If again this time chance turned against her, the game would be finished. It would not only be Vienna, the capital of the empire, but the whole monarchy which would be opened to the enemy. We certainly do not say this to disce-tarage people, but rather t(ó) excite them to make supreme efforts in order that the blow we are forced t..) strike may be well prepared and irresistible, and that success may be ensured beforehand.—Dsr Volksfreimd, a Vienna paper.
Affairs in Turkey.
Affairs in Turkey. The holders of Turkish ConsoHdé3 are at last to pay the penalty of their confidence in Lord Palmerston and his professed belief in the regeneration of Turkey. The State is insolvent, the coupons of the consolidated debt not having been paid, and it is said that bonds which the Government had pledged itself not to issue till July, 1867, have already been secretly sold. The Government appears to have lost its credit completely, no one will lend it anything, and it must, if its ex- penditure goes on, speedily come to a dead lock. It is perhaps as well that the inevitable break-up of thia empire should be preceded by a bankruptcy. Eo. g lahmen never sincerely like a defaulting State, and icm rf f6}1 **kat the final arrangements should not be a trfh y an ignorant English sympathy with the 7- *e now simply a nuisance in Europe.

Nevertheless, there was not a shot fired; Briinn was without troops. According to the Vienna papers, it is on the line of the Danube that Austria will concentrate her forces and prepare to take her revenge. According to them, there will not be _less than 400,000 men between Olmiitz and Vienna in a few days.

3 The Queen's University, Ireland. It i-3 of the utmost importance that the exact ques- tion in issue between Sir Robert Peel and the late Ad- ministration on the subject of the Queen's University in Ireland should be understood. The principles of university education in the sister kingdom are, no doubt, at the bottom of the discussion; but, im. portant as these principles may be, they sink into l'J?1'?K1^c.ance compared with the sacred character of Ministerial pledges. We may assume that the aims of Lord Russell's Administration were excellent; for it is not their aims, but the mode they adopted to accomplish them, that is in debate. The first charge made against them is, that they have attempted—how successfully remains to ba e.een—to carry out their views without taking the adviee of Parliament. The second charge is, Mat they made this attempt after having promised that they would consult Parliament upon the matter; and the third charge is, that the attempt was ) made just at the moment of quitting office, when they raight hope to escape the responsibility of their manoeuvre, and leave the question of University Edu- cation in such a position that their successors could not choose but carry out what they had commenced. The discusiiou in the House of Commons last night served to bring out more clearly than before the un- fortunate success of some members of the late Admin- istration in misleading, however unintentionally, those ) with whom they had to deal. That the Charter is wrongly described by the word "Supple- mentary was conclusively shown by the Attorney- General. It is in direct conflict with the existing Charter, inasmuch as it prescribes certain things to be done which the other declares shall not be done. It is even possible that for this reason it might be avoided on ap plication to the proper authority. Practi- cally, however, it would seem that as it is rejected by the Senate it must fall to the ground.-The Times. iheoomplaintaof Sir Robert Peel upon the course «°^duot pursued by his former colleagues were those winch any honourable man would have made under the circumstances. As a member of Parliament he heard nothing of the now charter, until he received a notice, as a member of the University Senate, apprising him of what had been done, and inviting him to consider provisions which ought to have been previously sub- mitted to the great council of the realm. The senate, however, did not approve of the alteration, and postponed" the reception of the charter, just as the Commons "postpone" the reading of an obnoxious bill for three or six months. They did this, moreover, although the late Ministry had only just strengthened" the governing body of the university by the addition of six new members of their own way of thinking. The Senate's reason J for this rejection was clear and cogent. They found that the original constitution of the university had J been done away, and that the colleges were hence- forth to become mere local centres for examination. And this change had been made, not only without their instance or acquiescence, but without their knowledge; for not even the Vice-Chancellor had seen a draft or heard of the provisions of the new 1 charter until it was laid before him for his acceptance or rejection !—Standard. j And here we may notice the total groundlessness of ] the charge that the late Government postponed its action on its deliberate and deliberately expressed] views OK the Irish University question till after the ] vote of the House which occasioned it to resign power. k It was stated by Mr. C. Fortescae last night that 1 the supplementary charter to the Irish University, ( against which all this tardy" and truly preposterous, clamour is now raised, received the sign manual a week before Lord Dankellin's motion came forward. That ( some subsequent steps were taken for carrying out 1 what has thus been decided, followed as a matter of course; and forms, indeed, a singular matter of com- 1 plaint on the part of a gentleman who had sat as a eiient and acquiescent member of the late Govern- ( mont, when the principle had been explicitly set forth ( on which that action was taken. We repeat that, if Parliament disapproved of the principles avowed by the late Government in this matter, the time for expressing disapproval of those principles 0 was when they were first put fJrth. All that has been a dene, or could be done by the late Government, and v the Royal pro'oga.tivo, was in the nature of permissive c and discretionary addition to the powers given by the t previous charter of the University. That additions ] thxta oonoedod to their previöusly conJerred powers- enabling them to confer degrees on students who had N qualified elsewhere for them than at the Queen's Col. t leges—a concession practically intended chiefly, of course, for the benefit of students at the Roman Catho- lie College, or, as it calls itself, University of Dablin- r is an addition the Senate of the University can use or IJ decline to use at its own discretion. The decision of n that body on the expediency of acting on the power c thus h'iven is deferred; and full opportunity remains for the intervention of Parliament in any sense it sees | fit. We confess we shall be considerably surprised if II it sees fit to intervene in any such sense as appears t, indicated by Sir Robert Peel's last night's onslaught c an his former colleagues.—Globe. v
OUR MISCELLANY. -+- War.— The warhorns clang, the sabres flash, The standards' haughty folds flaunt o'er the plain, The broad earth shakes beneath the serried ranks, And, thundering stern defiance, march the embattled hosts To deadly conflict! — 'The.trumpet's shrilly blast, the clash of arms, their country B war-cry, To the hearts of men resistless speak. And, emulous of glory's wreath- Tiieir souls aglow with all the rapture of the strife- As to a feast, the opposing foeman rush For Fatherland they fight, for Fatherland they fall; Red are their country's rivers with the life-drops of her sons, And on the bosom of their mother earth Her slaughter'd children ret-t. The panoplies of war, the glint of swords, The sparkle of the murderous steel, In woman's pitying eye find no responsive gleam. The god of War's fell notes, the cannon's direful booms, Wake not within her heart one answering sound: The sad, sad groans, the dying sighs, Of men in manhood's prime struck down, Fall on her ears, suffuse her gentle orbs, And War's unnumbered woes count yet another pang! Oh, glory, though thy crowns be fair, I And though men, I fear me, yet on many a field of blood Shall seek to win ye, Thy laurel leaves, methinks, should weigh like lead Upon the victor's brow. And the deep crimson stains ihatrast thy false and fatal splendour Should eat into his heart of hearts: Until, with quick repentant hand, From off his stained head, he'd tear th' ensanguined wreath And trample it to dust for ever! —Correspondent of Sunday Times.

It is a very common characteristic among poets and artists, as seen in Homer, Virgil, Shake- speare.Milton, Goethe, Dante, Raphael, Titian, Handel, Mozart, lasso, Chaucer, Keats, Burns, Hoffman, Long- fellow, and others. In pictures of Christ, and in other exalted, highly-refined and beautiful characters, this peculiarity is always introduced by the artist. Some- times the hair, on rising from its bulbs, turns in irregular rings on the forehead, giving an open air to the physiognomy. This indicates good nature as well as exuberant vitality. Crinkled, wavy, and close- 1 Burling hair and beard indicate vivacity and excit- i ibility, if not brilliancy. Regular curls symbolise ideality, and when only part of the hair is worn in i surl, are instinctively disposed over the organ of that faculty. Straight hair may be said to indicate, in cul- E fcivated personB, evenness of character and a straight- 1 Forward honesty of purpose, as well a3 a clear head i and good natural talents. The darkor the hair, the more robust the body, as a general rule, and the Bparser the skin and tissues of the body; but some- bimes the hair and skin are, at the same time, dark md fine. The dark-haired races are physically the strongest, but less endowed intellectually than the Fair-haired. The first are more inclined to manual .abour and active exercise, and the last to mental exer- ;ion. The dark races are workers, the light races thinkers, poets, artists, &c. Blaok hair indicates strength and predominance of the bilious temperament, as in the < Spaniard, the Malay, the Mexican, the Indian, and the legro. Red hair is a sign of ardour, passioa, intensity j )f feeling, and purity of character, and goes with the janguine temperament, as in the Scotch, the Irish, the I 3 wede, the Dane, &o. Auburn hair is found most fre- luently in connection with the lymphatic tem- < aerament, and indicates delicacy and refinement of iaBte, and if the mind be cultivated, fine moral and in- ;ellectual powers. It is common among the Germans, ;he Danes, and Anglo-Saxons. Dark-brown hair sombines the strength of the black with the ex- a laisite susceptibilities of the light hair, and is, t jerhaps, all things considered, the most desirable.— u Vew Physiognomy, by S. II. Wells, New York. Our Seaside Resorts.-In the morning I shot out of the grand arch of the Great Northern terminus; at noon I was under the shadow of York Minster; in the evening, after twisting off and on the Cleveland coast, past the huge furnaces which proclaim that there iron is king, I stopped at a neat station which I found formed the back of the Zetland Hotel, the central point of Saltburn-by-the-Sea. It was dark when I got in; I was tired and hungry, so my opera- tions that evening were eonfined to a survey of my quarters. It was satisfactory. The "Zetland" I found to be a spacious, well-ordered hotel of some 120 rooms, with what may be called all the "newest appliances," and with an unmistakably good cook. This put me in good humour. Descending to the coffee-room next morning, I shall not soon forget the pleasant surprise with which I took the bearings of the place. Perched on a cliff 150 feet above the level of the eea, the hotel, with its broad stone terrace, faces the German Ocean, and bisects the crescent-like front of the little village of Saltbura with its pretty lines of extending villas. To the right, intersected by deep gullies, the cliff gradually rises until we come to the bold towering headland, Huntcliff Nab, a clear 500 feet above the sea, which lashes up to its base. To the left the cliff slopes down-down to five miles of long, firm, level sand-on to Redcar, beyond which, in the dim sunny distance, Hartlepool may be faintly discerned. So much the new-comer can take in at a glance. Behind him, too, he sees the rich vale of Cleveland and the wooded knolls of Upleatham (the Earl of Zetland's seat). But it takes time, I found, to explore the fairy glen which is the crowning charm of what might at present be called the Broadstairs of the north. Standing on the terrace and looking seaward or to the cliffs, you have a bold coast and a bracing breeze; turn off the terrace by a winding road a few steps, and Skelton Beck, as it ripples into the sea., lies at your feet-on for a few hundred yard9 into the glen and you are in a new scene altogether Footpaths lead you through arching woods the hL S* chanfe is Budden and start! eentlv onthn9 ?eaF S8a> but its moan comes Sjf™ t,he e». mingled with the ripple of the fresh doY? m iu3 channel below. The snn strug- gles through the green curtain overhead and lights up the wild flowers at your feet. All is cool, quiet, and refreshing. What a change from town life I found it all! At the end of the first day I had made up my mind. Eureka! Here I shall stay. Let those who choose be boiled on the Rhine, or rattle through Switzerland, there to toil and be fleeced and bullied. In this half-known nook of the old country—this quiet eddy on the stream of life, I shall stay while I can. When I am active the cliffs and the sands will afford me exercise. When I am lazy I shall read and dream in the glen. And I did it for a whole month, and came back to work with a clearer head, firmer nerves and a better temper and digestion-London Society.
ALARMING ACCIDENT ON THE BLACKWALL…
ALARMING ACCIDENT ON THE BLACK- WALL RAILWAY. On Thursday afternoon an inquiry was instituted bv order of the directors respecting a serious accident which took place on the previous evening at the Lon. don Dock branch junction of the Blaokwall Railway, and placed the lives of a number of passengers iu con. siderable peril. It appears that the train from Broad. street station, and due m Fenchurch-street terminus at half-past nine, was proceeding up the Blackwall line from Stepney, at its usual rate, and on passing "he f1 ?n,Fi? Junction the engine driver found that the tram had been turned into the junction, and before he d° anything to effect any material slackening of speed the engine dashed into a goods train, break, and engine which were standing in the branch with fearful force. The shook is described to have been very severe, The goods breakwaa shattered, and the engine attached to it was damaged. The passenger train engine was thrown off the metals, and two carriages next to the tender were hurled on their side and their ends much crushed. Most providentially they were empty. Had they been occupied by passengers the most ] deplorable consequences must have eiisued. The (< carriages had been sent on from Broad-street in i order to be detached at Bow, but the train being ] late on arriving at that station, it was thought best ( not to detain the train, and so, fortunately, they were j sent on. Next to these carriages was the breai, which i if it had been attached to the tender, as is usually the case, the guard would in all probability have lost his life. The front of the break was stove in, and, aa may be imagined, the shock of the blow affectea the whole of the train. Some of the passengers sustained contu- sions and were much shaken, but there^ appears to have been no serious injury. The driver of the passenp-sr engine is stated to have been hurt. Further inqijirv as to the came of the accident will be made. 1

Hard Lines." (See Lord Derby's Speech, Monday, July 9th.) Here's a task to put temper and taot to their'mettle, In these heats of July to be worked off our legs, While, betwixt men and places, the problem we settle Given more pegs than holes, to find holes for eur pegs." For Cabiaet-makiag was always hard labour, E'en with good stook-in-trade and one's toolslweli 1w on edge, But to take up the business, when dropped by a neigh. bour, With one's stuff all unseasoned, one's tools: all in pledge- With the cramp in one's limbs, and one's hand out of practice, One's old shopmates rusty, one's young 'nns untried— iVe'd never have opened the shop, but the fact is, There's a party behind us as won't be denied. iVeVe done all we could to enlarge our connections, New capital into the firm tried to bring; 3ut the party from over the way had objections, And we're forced to fall back on] the old style of thing. So here goes for a venture: put up the old fixtures; Set out the old show-glass; display the old bills; T 'e',ve OD^ ?'d Bk°°ki we must try on new mixtures, Let's hope, if old firms go, we'll get their good-wills.

SINGULAR DEATHS OF A WIFE…
SINGULAR DEATHS OF A WIFE AND HUSBAND. An inquest was held at Hawkhurst, Kent, on Saturday, on the bodies of a gentleman named Durrant and his wife. It appears that for Bevera1 weeks symptoms of a deranged mind, and a female attendant had been engaged to look after her. On F?2 exn™LeAen n°-\ing: f.0r ttr6e da?s, Mrs. DuJrant expressed her ™sh to have a glass of sherry and an vf f it ,ber 'or a moment to order he egOI but the moment she had turned her baok the unfortunate lady went into the conservatory, through the garden, and at a rapid rate made towards the pond. Mr. Durrant, Mr. Cooke, a medioal attendant, and the female attendant followed, and the whole distance, about 120 or 130 yards, was done by the four as quickly as possible. Mrs. Durrant having slightly the start, and being more active, reached the Bide of a pond in the grounds of the house, and instantly plunged in, and was some distance from the bank when her husband reached it. He seems to have hesitated for a moment, and then stepped in, and was gone immediately, the bank being very steep. Neither of the bodies rose in the water. A portion only of Mrs. Durrant's dress was seen near the surface. In a few minutes help was at hand, but, as no one on the spot could swim, grappling-hooks were procured, and both bodies were landed, after being under the water nearly a quarter of an hour. In each case life was found to be extinct. Mr. Dtirrant was 87 years of age, and Mrs. Durrant 47. Verdicts in aooordanoe with the facts were returned.

The bankrupt was William Webber, consulting and operating surgeon, of Tunbridge Wells. He now applied to be released from prison. His detaining creditor is Mr. C. Trustram, also a surgeon, of Tun- bridge Wells, whose debt is £ 193. He had obtained an award against the bankrupt in an action for libel arising out of statements made by the bankrupt in connection with the sanitary condition of Tunbridge Wells, and in whioh be oharged Mr. Trustram with making improper use his position as a member of the Tunbridge Local Board.
