CHANGES IN THE PEERAGE. -The mortality in the ranks of the peerage during 1870 has been considerably less than in the course of the previous year, when the deaths of 32 lords spiritual and temporal were recorded.

ANGLESEY TO BE GARRISONED.—it IS said, and there .,)Cl grounds for the beliel that it is the intention of the (Government to provide bi-rrack accommodation in the county of Anglesey, and th^e is every probability that L,.a,nrrefm will be selected as bong the most central spot. The barracks are intended in answer a double Purpose, viz to accommodate the Royal Anglesey Militia during their period of training (i"^ad of billeting them as at present on private houses at Beaumaris), and at other times a regiment or one or two depots of the line. The plans have been drawn by the royal engine s, and it is understood only want confirmation at headquarters. Th5 staff of the Anglesey militia are now lodged in totally inadequate quarters in the town of Beaumans, and, Be- sides there being insufficient room for the storage 01 arms, the place is almost, if not entirely, unprotected in the 'event of an assault being made upon it from without. This gave rise to much alarm during the Fenian" scare," and a gingerbread attempt was then made to "fortify" the building. —Liverpool Mercury.

The decks of that vessel ,-ere blown up, and the ship herself almost immediately aisappeare(j, rpjjc boats 0f the Frenchman were quickly on the scene of the disaster, and were fortunately succes- ful m saving the crew of the Compeer, 25 men, many of whom were severely injured by the explosion,
