Francis Lawley, who was the Times correspondent in the Southern States dur- ing the war, and was previously private secretary to Mr. Gladstone, has joined the staff of an influential journal of advanced Liberal opinions, to which he contributes a leading article daily.

THE King of Hanover has sent his coat and trousers to the Museum of Hanover which he wore at the battle of Langensalza. The only remark the suit can evoke is, There's nothing in it."

THE Queen of Spain has put a little gilt on the bitter pill which the new Ministry has prepared for the people by ordering the taxes to be paid six months in antioi- pation.

Mr. Brand 13 suffering under severe in- dieposition. Some few weeks ago he was compelled by an attack of erysipelas to absent himself for some days from his Parliamentary duties. On his resumption of those duties before complete recovery he was again attacked by indisposition, and we learn that yielding to the counsel of his medical adviser, he is about to proceed at once to Aix-la-Chapelle, to take the benefit of its waters and the change of air.

The compulsory clauses of the New Vaccination Bill also required very great attention, and would have it at their hands. After referring to the vast assistance they had received from the local boards and from their officers, the members sat down amid loud ap- plause. The Rev. E. J. P. Eyre moved, and Professor Marks seconded, a cordial vote of thanks to the borough members, who briefly acknowledged the com- pliment, and the proceedings closed.
