The total receipts for the four mouths of the society's existence amount to £1,95 t, and the expenditure leaves a balance in hand of £ 1,5S8. Sir John Glover, who has been suffering a great deal from the effects of an injury received in a railway collision at Castlebar, is now progressing favourably. Mr Ferry, acting President of the Senate, succeeds the i late Mr Wilson as Vice-President of the American Re- public. At Liverpool on Tuesday, November 23, the London and North Western Railway Company were charged with a breach of the cattle plague regulations in omitting to cleanse and disinfect seven cattle trucks, which were loaded a Stanley railway station. The defendants were fined £105, being 215 for each truck. The defence was that the trucks had been loaded by the drovers, against the orders of the stationmaster. Instances of similar lawlessness wer6 given, and it was stated to be the intention of the company to in- troduce a special by-law to restrain drovers. Mr Pell, M.P., in the course of a paper on out-door relief which he read at a conference of Poor La v Guardians at Leicester on Wednesday, Nov. 24th, contended that the prohibitory order had not proved an adequate check on pauperism. He regarded as impossible the immediate, or even a hasty withdrawal of out-Joor relief, but offered Bug. gestions for remedying the ill effects of the present system. The London Congregational Union have appointed Mr Jauies Spicer as their chairman. This is the first time a ayman has beea elected to that post. The Prince of Wales returned to Bombay on Wednesday Nov 24th, and immediately went on board the Serapis, On Thursday he proceeded on his voyage to Colombo.

An official account from the Admiralty with respect to the recent accident to the Iron Duke states that the ship was in no possible danger, and that tha cause of the accumula- t,ionof water having been discovered and remedied with- out difficulty or delay, the ve^e! was pumped dry in ten minutes. Mr Maclver, M.P., was entertained by his politcal friends at a banquet at Birkenhead on Wedntsday night) November 24th. Owing to no accommodation being provi- ded for the representatives of the Press, they left the meeting in a body, and the proceedings were not reported. Copies of Mr Mac Iver's speech had been previously sup- plied to the local press. Captain Nares, commander of the Arctic expedition, has written to his wife as follows. We have had most ex. traordinary success. The season has proved to be the best that ever was. and by a happy calm for two days I have turned it to su3h account that we have made the quickest passage thus far that was ever made so early in the season as this. The Americans did it in August, but here we are in July, with a clear month before us, and no ice whatever in sight, and I am sure that there is very little ahead of us. Of course all is wild delight at our prospects. The old whaling men thought I was mid to choose a new route but it was as I rensoned it would be—successful. We are sure to get as near to the pole as the laud goes, and then it will b6 our own fault if we do not complete the work."
