The whole physical machinery is thus rendered healthy, regular, and vigorous. Coughs, Colds, and Asthmas.

SIR HENRY RAWLINSON, M.P., ON THE ABYSSINIAN QUESTION. Sir H. Rawlinson, while at Frome the otber ^jay speaking on the Abyssinian question,remarked that among the general public there appeared to be great C, ignorance about Abyssinia, ffnd yet there was no country in the East on which more had been written. Some of the works dated from the fifteenth century. The first mission into the country was sent by the Portuguese, and from that time many were sent by the Jesuits. In 1762 Bruce visited the country, and since then English missionaries have gone to Abyssinia repeatedly. He told his hearers that the stories they had seen in the newspapers about the unhealthiness and difficulties of Abyssinia were all moonshine. Abyssinia was really one of the healthiest coun- tries in the world, so healthy, in fact, that he had no doubt that hereafter all the Indian invalids would go there as a sanatorium. That was the best answer to Mr Nobody that the troops would have to travel through 800 miles of the country, and that they would be decimated before they could approach the enemy. But there was be- tween the sea and the highlands a dry arid plain, but that was in the north part of the country, and so short that it could be crossed in a single march. Rising from the alluvial plains which skirted the country on the north-west, the mountain system of Abyssinia widened as it extended southwards, till it soon acquired a breadth of 200 or 300 miles, and even more, forming an extensive tableland, of which the seaward edge ran from north to south, at a general elevation of about 8,000 feet, and pre- sented, therefore, towards the sea the appearance of a lofty range of mountains. As to the religion of the country, Sir H. Rawlinson said that it was Christian—not of the pure type.butmuchpreferable to paganism. The country was first converted to Christianity in the time of Athanasius. Theodore did not belong to the Royal Family. He was only a foreigner. As to the immediate cause of the present complications with England, the speaker said that it arose from several causes. The Em peror's mind had been poisoned against England by those around him. And a misunderstanding with Mr Stern, who was under his (Sir H. Raw- linson's) protection, occasioned difficulties. In 1862 tVIr Stern was in attendance upon the King, when the servants of the former committed some trifling act against the laws of the country, for which his Majesty ordered them to be bastinadoed. Surprised at this treatment, Mr Stern, from a feeling of horror, bit his thumb in the presence of the King, a mark of great disrespect, and for that Mr Stern was, by royal command, bastinadoed himself. In the same year Captain Cameron went to Abyssinia, and was well received by the King, w.ho gave him a letter for the Queen of England. Captain Cameron despatched it from Massowah and returned to the King at Gondar. He was then seized and imprisoned for intriguing with the Egyptians, and his papers seized. In. them were found much about King Theodore, so that he (the King) thought himself justified in keeping the consul in prison. Sir Henry Rawlinson reviewed the steps that had been taken to obtain their re- lease, particularly the efforts of Mr Rassam, who was detained as hostage, and urged that the King having now Jost all claim on their consideration, it was absolutely necessary that they should pro- ceed with a high hand. He concluded by asking what the army was to do in case the prisoners were given up. He saw a great possibility of their being obliged, contrary to their wishes, to oceutpy the country for a certain time, and per- haps to place another chief on the throne, a de- scendant of the Royal Family, who, it was al- leged, was the rightful heir. It they did not succeed in getting their prisoners, they must ne- cessarily occupy the country for a short period, but the shorter the better. « ATTEMPT TO MCHDER A POLICEMAN.—About midnight on Saturday as John Saunders, 153 E., aged .24, an officer belonging to the metropolitan police force, was on his beat in the Euston road, he observed a man of suspicious appearance, whom he thought it his duty to watch with that inten tton he followed him to Appleton place (a turnin<r leading out of Euston road) and then into Cres- cent-mews, where he lost sight of him owing to the darkness of the place. He lost sight of him for some considerable time, but feeling sure that the man was still in the mews, he, at about half-past two, proceeded to the bottom, where several emptv cabs were standing. On approaching the last one the man whom he had been watching suddenly rushed from behind it, with a sharp pointed knife in his hand, with which he struck the constable on the right side of the head. The knife pierced the helmet, and entering the skull inflicted a wound about an inch deep. The force of the blow felled the constable to the ground, and on his attempting to rise the man drew a pistol which be fired at the officer, wounding him in the thigh. The ball went in above the knee and passed completely through p r, the leg, causing a copious flow of blood. Saunders then sprung his rattle, on which he was again at- tacked from behind by the ruffian, who struck him several violent blows with some blunt weapon, thus rendering him insensible. The ruffian then made his escape, leaving Saunders apparently dead in the mews, where he was found by Police serjeant Wheeler, 18 E, who had him conveyed to the Hunter street Police station, where he was attended to by Dr. Paul, the divisional surgeon. On the serjeant returning to the spofMn the mews he dis- covered a knife on the ground where the outrage bad taken place, and also a pistol nnd the bullet with which the officer had been wounded Jn the cab behind which the cowardly ruffian was con- cealed the serjeant found two ounces of gunpowder I!" tP'fe ° f V°Vi paper' a11 of which articles he /fho ar^e.,° following is the description of the assailant as given by the injured man •— Age, apparently about 30 height, 5ft. lOin.; com- plexion and hair fair, a short tuft on the chin. He was dressed in a blue pilot coat with two rows of buttons, dark trousers, blucher boots, Fenian hat, no collar, but wore a handkerchief round his neck. ? ° 1 Cifr' ^aun^ersj lies in a very precarious s a e although hopes are entertained of his recovery, nspector Williams, of the detective force of Scot- land yard, together with several other officers, are using every endeavour to trace the scoundrel who has committed this dastardly outrage. Late on Saturday night we heard that the wouuded man was in a very precarious condition.
THE ALTON MURDER. On Wednesday Professor Taylor, of Guy's Hos- pital, to whom the knives, clothes, and other ar- ticles belonging to the prisoner Baker were sent* completed his analysis. It will be remembered that traces of that which was presumed to be blood were found on some of the prisoner's; clothes and on one of the knives in his posses- sion. After a very minute examination extending over a month, Professor Taylor has made his re- port of the experiments made in the matter to the Chief Constable of Hampshire, wherein he states that it is human blood upon the knife and clothes. Doubts were entertained at first as to whether the knives found on the prisoner ware capable of mutilating the body in the way it was done, owing to their smallness. A large number of police under the authority of Superintendent Cheyney have, since the magisterial investigation,, minutely searched a large circle round the scene of the murder, including the river Wev, which rises near the spot; but after 16 days" diligent search failed to obtain any knife, or the part of the little victim's body which is still irissing. The county surveyor, aided by a staff of assistants, has just completed a plan on a large scale of ths- hop field and the surrounding neighbourhood, ta be produced for the information of the court on the trial of the prisoner in December next. The prisoner's conduct since his committal to Winchester Gao! has been anything but reserved. He is very talkative to the" warders, but more. especially to the chaplain, and is attentive to bis. religious duties. He seldom complains. Ones when he did so, at not having sufficient exercise^, he was told to walk faster, which he acted upon,, but made no reply. lie frequently refers to the murder, and observes that his own conscience is quite clear. He wonders who the guilty party was, and expresses a hope that whoever he was he will be found out. He possesses an excellent ap- petite, and sleeps well, which is rather remarkable^ considering that while under arrest at A Hois awaiting the magisterial investigation, be shud- dered at the sight of meat in any shape, and was. very disturbed in his sleep. So strange was his conduct that a strict watch was placed over him as a precaution against his committing suicide. The subscription on behalf of the parents of the poor little victim, who are in humble'circuit stances in life, for the purpose of assisting, them: in a measure to meet various expenses whidt have been entailed upon them, has been fairly i-e- sponded to. — e SHOCKING SUIC!DE OF A SOLDIER.—A sad Case; of suicide occurred at the Clarence Barracks^ Portsmouth, on Friday morning, when a young soldier, named Jarnes Corcoran, belonging to the 98th Regiment, shot himself with a loaded rifle i» his room. Death resulted in about an hour. It appears that the unfortunate man had been de- tected in the act of trying, with the aid of a civilian to dispose of a pair of boots, for which offence hs- was tried by a military court-martial and sen- tenced to seven days' cells. He left the gziard with the ostensible object of getting his kit, and, while alone, seized a loaded rifle and committed tiks: rash act which ended in death. THE LAST OF THE CELTS.—TtH within a. few years previous to the commencement of the pre- sent century a complete specimen of this hardy race remained, who inhabited a cottage on the borders of the Llanberris lake. This was Mar- garet Uch Evan, of Penllyn, the greatest hunter- shooter, and fisher of her time. She kept at least a dozen or two of dogs—terriers e-re-yl hounds, and spaniels—all excellent in' theV kinds. She killed more foxes in one year tbas& all the confederate hunts did in ten rowed stoutly, and was queen of the lake fiddled ex- cellently, and knew all the old Welsh music Roy did she neglect the mechanic arts, for she was a very good joiner and, notwithstanding she was 70 years of age, was the best wrestler of her time,, few young men daring to try a fall with her. For many years she had a maid of congenial qualities. -Land and Water. t, IMPORTANT DISCOVERY OF COAL IN SHROPSHIRE. -An important discovery of coal has just been made near Madeley, in Shropshire, in a district: leased by the Madeley Wood Company. About: three years ago a pair of pits were sunk at Pejns- berton at a point outside the limits originaUv assigned to the Coalbrookdale, but where a more modern geological survey had ascertained that n, strong probability of its extension existed. The coal has been struck at a distance of 256 yards from the surface, and the seam known as the top coal' is one of the most valuable found in the- district, and is invariably followed in regular suc- cession by the double coal, yard coal, best conl, flint coal, randle coal, clod coal, and little flint. It is a circumstance that just about this time last year the discovery of coal outside the old boundary- was made by the Lileshall Company, at Prior- slee, and that company encouraged by their for- mer success, are now engaged in prosecuting a further search in the same locality, and with even? indication of similar results. The presgnt dis- covery has been received with great satisfaction in the neighbourhood, opening up as it does a prospect of the establishment of an extensive 1])- dustrial community on a spot not much more than, a rabbit warren. PRIZE FIGHTS. vVuat a pity it is that PRFAS* fights are not put on the same footing as duels. Jn the latter case it is a misdemeanour to send a challenge either by word or by letter, or to be the bearer thereof, and the offence is punishable by fine and imprisonment. If it were made- a misdemeanour to send a challenge for a prisa fight the subsequent breach of tbe law would be prevented, and the mode of stopping fights woiilil be much simplified. As it is, the proceedings are allowed to go on until the men are in the riiii,. and an 'affray' is imminent. The appearaDte of the police at the critical moment may now bs generally calculated upon but it is very abs«,«i to allow matters to go so far where an intention to break the peace is proclaimed in the press And the absurdity becomes intensified when a dirC sion of the police force is actually engaged facilitating the dispatch by train of the aiders and abettors, who, if death resulted from the would, according to Mr Justice Littledate guilty of manslaughter. Therefore there is not only a necessity, as suggested by contemporaries, for revising the whole police organisation to pjtw vent one division of it from impeding the action of another, but there is a necessity for a reviskssi of the law to make a challenge to a prize.fioht al misdemeanour.-Tlle Law Times* °
