MUSICAL AND LITERARY ENTER- TAINMENT. ON THURSDA F, THE 28th OF MAY, 1868. OPENING OF THE HAROLDSTONE WEST SCHOOL ROOM. Several Amateurs and others will assist on the occasion.
A NEW HAIR-DYE.—Dr M'Call Anderson, in a recent paper, say: During the treatment I ac- cidentally discovered what piomises to be the most perfect black dye for the hair which has yet been seen. After having used the bichloride lotion for some weeks, I changed it for the lotion of hypo- sulphate of soda; and the morning after the first application the hair of the part, which before was bright red, had become nearly black. One or two more applications rendered it jet black, while neither the skin nor the clothing were stained. I saw this patient a couple of weeks later, and there was not the least deterioration of colour, although, of course, as the hair grows the new portions will possess the normal tint. He was by occupa- tion a Turkey-red dyer, and was much interested in the discovery, though rather grieved to find, what medically must be considered one of its greatest advantages, that it did not dye the linen, I r, and was therefore unavailable for his purposes.

SERIOUS MUTINY OF CoonES.—From Table Bay is reported a serious mutiny of coolies, 300 of whom were on board the French ship Esperance, 391 tons, Captain Noel, from Macao, January 5, for Havannah, which put into the bay on the 25th March for water and provisions. The following are the particulars of the affair. The coolies were confined below and were apparaently as unwilling I voyageurs as English convicts en route for an Australian settlement. On the passage they made a desperate effort to recover their liberty. The vessel left Macao in charge of her owner, Captain Boyce. On her fifteenth day at sea a fresh breeze sprang up which necessitated her sail being re- duced rapidly. The crew not being strong enough to do this by themselves, 50 of the coolies were brought up from below to assist in shortening sail. They were distributed about in gangs, and the crew went aloft to reef and furl. While the crew were aloft, the coolies rushed into the cabin to get at the arms. Captain Boyce, who was at the wheel, left it, and called to the crew. and rushed into the saloon sword in hand after the coolies, who were just getting out the ship's arms. A desperate conflict ensued, in which Captain Boyce was very severely wounded, and narrowly escaped with his life before the crew came to his assistance. The coolies were at length got under their leader being killed in the emeute. Captain Boyce had subsequently to be left at Anjer for a passage, via Batavia, to England. The Esperance z' 0 left Table Bay March 28 for Havannah. THE WEST-END DRESSMAKERS.—At the Marl- borough-street Police-court, Mr John Verdee, mil- liner and dressmaker, George-street, Hanover- square, was summoned before Mr D'Eyncourt by Dr Aldis, medical officer of health for St, George's, for unlawfully employing certain women alter Z, hail-past four o'clock ou Saturday afternoon. Dr Aldis, as the medical officer for St. George's, Hanover-square, had summoned the defendant for an inlringement of the 4tb clause of the Work- shops Regulation Act, by allowing women to work after half-past four o'clock on the 2nd of May. He had twice before complained to the de- fendant that he had infringed the Act, and had re- ported the circumstance to the vestry, but pro- ceedings were not instituted be/ause the defen- dant promised to comply with the Act. Another complaint having been sent to the vestry lie went to the defendant's house, and having beard what several young women in his employ bad to state, he instituted the present proceedings. Witness said that the premises were large aud well venti- lated, the young women appeared to be well taken care of, and he had only to complain of this breach of the Act. Mr D'Eyncourt said the Act was in- tended to prevent heavy and undue work beiug done by young women. In the present case the witnesses appeared to be in good health and well treated, but still there bad been a breach of the Act. If the defendant would promise it should not occur again he would oaly inflict a nominal I fille-viz, is and the coats. i
HOUSFOF^OMMON^ Mr Gladstone, in a brief speech, moved the second Resolution :—That, subject to the foregoing consi- derations (the preservation of vested rights), it is ex- pedient to prevent the creation of new personal in- terests by the exercise of any public patronage, and to confine the operations of the Ecclesiastical Com- missioners of Ireland to objects of immediate necessity, or such as involve individual rights, pending the final decision of Parliament.' Its general object, he explained, was to give immediate and practical effect, as far as time would admit, to a general declaration of opinion, and he anticipated that even those who considered modifications of the Irish Church were sufficient, without going so far as disestablishment, would not object to prevent the creation of new vested interests until those modifications could be made. He urged, too, that the Resolution would shorten the period of transition into the voluntary system, that it would save the succeeding Parliament a repetition of the preliminary discussions through which the House had just passed, and that it would facilitate a rapid settlement of the question, which even the friends of the Church must desire after Parliament had pronounced a decisive opinion. The Bill which he contemplated would propose a suspen- sion of public patronage (private patronage being ex- cepted) until August 1, 1869, and he showed that the passing of it would produce no kind of practical inconvenience to the Church, as ample arrangements were made in the Church Temporalities Act for the preservation of the discipline and service of the Church. Mr Hardy, on behalf of the Government, stated that, though they could not assent to the Resolution, yet, admitting that they had sustained as severe a defeat as ever had befallen a Government, and for the sake of bringing the business of the session to a close, they did not intend to divide against it. But this, he added, would not prevent them opposing the Suspensory Bill, on which their policy would be de- clared when it appeared. He remarked, however, that nothing was said in the Resolutions to prevent the creation of new vested interests in the Maynooth Grant and the Regium Donum. After some observations from Mr Newdegate, Mr Whalley, and Sir F. Heygate, the Resolution was carried amid loud cheers. Mr Gladstone next moved his third Resolution, as amended, in these terms:—'That, an humble Ad- dress be presented to her Majesty, humbly to pray that, with a view to preventing, by legislation, during the present session, the creation of new personal in- terests through the exercise of any public patronage, her Majesty would be graciously pleased to place at the disposal of Parliament her interest in the tem- poralities of the Archbishoprics, and other eclesias- tical dignities and benefices in Ireland, and in the custody thereof.' He described it as a sequel to the second, and as simply formal; for though it would be competent to introduce a Bill (but not to pass it), he thought it but respectful on a matter affecting so important a right of the Crown to obtain the Royal consent before bringing in a Bill. Answering an observation of Mr D. Griffith, Mr Disraeli remarked that he had not understood Mr Gladstone to make any assumption as to the character of the answer he would receive, or whether he would receive any answer at all. If the Address were passed, it would be the duty of the Government to consider it, and properly to advise her Majesty upon it The Resolution was agreed to. Mr Laing withdrew his resolution for referring the question to the new constituencies, but expressed a very strong opinion that public feeling decidedly pre- ferred that course to an immediate dissolution. A long and animated discussion followed, on a Resolution moved by Mr Sinclair Aytoun and se- conded by Mr Lamont, declaring that. when the Anglican Church in Ireland is disestablished and Z, disendowed, the grant to Maynooth and the Regium Donum shall be discontinued and that no part of the secularized funds of the Anglican Church, or any State funds whatever, be applied in any way, or under any form, to the endowment or further- ance of the Roman Catholic religion in Ireland, or to the establishment or maintenance of Roman Catholic denominational schools or colleges." A preliminary objection was taken to it by Mr Ayrton, on the ground that it was out of order to discuss the Regium Donum in a Committee on the Irish Church Act; but the Chairman ruled that, though it might he inconvenient, the Resolution was not out of order. Mr Bright strongly opposed it on account of its abstract charatcer, which would in no way pledge any future Parliament, and argued that, if carried out, it must destroy the denominational system of education in Ireland. Sir James Fergusson insisted that the disposal of the funds taken from the Irish Church was an all-important branch of the subject, on which the House bad a right to be fully informed, and sug- gested the omission from the motion of the portion relating to the Regium Donum and the Maynooth grant. Sir G. Grey pointed out that the Resolution would involve mOlt; embarrassing consequences, inasmuch as it would put a stop to grants to Roman Catholic denominational schools, and for Roman Catholic army and gaol chaplains. Why should the Roman Catholics alone be placed under such a ban ? Mr P. Wyndham also opposed the Resolution, believing that it would render valueless the sacrifice of the Establishment. Mr Gladstone repeated, with marked emphasis, his declaration made in the first debate, that the Maynooth Grant and the Regium Donum must both be abolished, but he strongly protested against pledging the House before the time to opinions to which practical effect could not be given. Great confusion and danger to the important enterprise on which the House was engaged, he pointed out, would result from straying away from the main point, and more particularly he objected to voting for a Resolution which singled out one particular form of religion, and stig'natized it with special condemnation. M r Newdegate, Mr G. Hardy, Mr Serjeant Gaselee, and Colonel Stuart spoke in favour of the Resolution it was opposed by Mr Cogan, Mr Clay, and Mr Whit- bread's amendment was then put, and Mr Gladstone proposed to add to it the words, due regard being had to all personal interests.' In the course of the somewhat heated and confused conversation which followed, Mr Ayrton reflected with considerable acrimony on the conduct of the Government, and Mr Disraeli, in defending himseli, characterized the discussion as a 'quarrel over the plunder.' Mr Gladstone's addition having been agreed to, Mr Greene thereupon moved the addition of words declaring that no part of the endowment of the Irish Church shall be applied to the endowment of the institutions of any other religious body. Mr Bright repeated his objection that such a pledge would destroy the denominational system, on which alone, unfortunately, education could be conducted in Ireland and Mr Gladstone demanded that a longer notice should be given. There was another discursive conversation on the words, including 'another warm skirmish between Sir G. Grey and the Premier as to the duties of the Government and Leader of the House on such occasions. Mr Scourfleld said that the House was landed in a confusion which was becoming still more con- fused already. He bad always abstained from say" ing or doing anything which might excite religiofS y c animosity and had always voted for the con- tinuauce of the Maynootb Grant, though opposed to the wishes of the constituency which he repre- sented. There were two modes of disturbing the religious peace of a country-the one was by trans- ferring the Church revenues from one denomination to another, the other by levelling downwards. But be contended that there was a third and better course for that House to follow, and that was to have a religion established which would exercise a perfect toleration towards other religions. That was the best arrangement for the preservation of religious peace. But now they were beginning to 11 0 quarrel over the spoils. His idea was that If there was money to be had out of the Irish Church the lawyers and commissioners would get the greater part of it. And after all, how much did this money amount to? If he was not mistaken, it was only £447,000 a year, of which £380,000 alone was devoted to parochial endowments. But in order to show how small a sum that was, whether absolutely or relatively, he would remind the Committee that the cost of the printing and stationery for Parliament this year was estimated at £ 395,000. (Hear, hear.) He hoped, therefore, that in whatever spirit they discussed the quell- tion it would not have reference to money. He had also a great objection to the use of the word 'doomed.' He could not bear to hear people speak, as if they were Pagans, about things being doomed.' Finally, Mr Greene's addendum was negatived by 132 to 97, and Mr Whitbread's Resolution (as amended by Mr Gladstone) was agreed to. On the motion that the Chairman report progress, Mr Disraeli remarked that the events of the evening were a signal proof that those who bad introduced the Resolutions had introduced the elements of confusion into the country. Mr Bright, as a reply to this parting shot,' as he termed it, pointed out to Mr Disraeli that the events of the evening also showed how little chance of success his policy of endowing the Roman Catholic Church was likely to have. Without making a direct charge against Mr Disraeli, he inveighed in vigoroo* and incisive language against a Minister who could deceive his Sovereign in such a crisis, and declared that to put the Sovereign to the front in a great struggle like this was a grave political crime. Lord J. Manners replied to Mr Bright, and, denyiclj that the Government had contemplated endowment the Roman Catholics, he taunted Mr Bright having just given a vote for retaining the power Of transferring the property of the Church to the ROlDall Catholic Church. Mr Gladstone read, for Lord John Manners3 information, a passage from Lord Mayo's speech 111 which he contended the policy of endowing the Roman Catholic clergy was clearly foreshadowed- He put a different construction on the vote just given, maintaining that the effect of the proposal agaInst which Mr Bright had voted would he to perpetuate religious inequality. As to Mr Disraeli's language he had never heard such from a Prime Munster before. Mr Disraeli repeated that the history of the evening was an indication of the confusion which existed 011 this question, and vindicated his language as sensible and appropriate to the occasion. Turning to 1\ r Bright, he indignantly defied him to put his insintia* tions into the shape of a formal charge, and appea. with confidence to the verdict of 'gentlemen' a marked stress on the word) on both sides This brought a stormy scene to a close and the Speaker being in the chair, the resolutions *eve agreed to by the House, amid loud and prolonged cheering. i he next business was the Irish Reform Bill, the second reading of which was moved by Lord Mayo- Mr C. Fortescue intimated that he should not oppose the second reading, but very considerate changes would be moved in Committee. The county franchise must be brought down to £ 8, and tb redistribution scheme must be entirely renio(lelled. fhe same course was taken by Colonel French, M Pim, Sir J. Gray, Dr. Brady, and other Irish who spoke, supporting the second reading, t V0 criticising the details of the measure, and promisee further discussion and numerous amendments in Committee. e The Earl of Mayo made a short reply, and th Bill was read a second time. — THE DEATH OF LORD BROUGHAM.
