SERIOUS CHARGE.—At the Cheltenham police-court, on Thursday, H. Fleetwood, perambulator manufacturer, of Cheltenham, was charged with having within the last six months wilfully neglected to provide adequate food, cloth- ing, medfeal aid, and lodging for his son Henry J.Fleet- wood, aged eleven years, whereby his health had been seriously impaired. Superintendent Day stated that he went to the prisoner's place of business in Pittvule-street on Thursday in consequence of information he had received and saw the prisoner, and also his little boy, who appeared to be in a very delicate and weak state of health, and from the child's appearance, and on the information he possessed respecting its ill-treatmentby the father, he took him in custody. Heafterewardsweighedtheboyandfound that he weighen barely 461b., the AVERSE weight of a boy his age being six stone. He also weighed a little boy, six years of age, the son of PRISONER s housekeeper, who lived in the same house, and feund that ne weighed 531 pounds. The prisoner's wife was dead, and the only child he had living was the little boy in question. A little girl of his died a short time ago under suspicious circumstances, and an inquest was held and the pnaoner very severely cen- auredby the jury for his neglect towards her. Upon this the prisoner was remanded till Saturday for the production ef further evidence, and was removed in custody.
THE FUTURE OF FRANCE. The ex-Empress of the French has been interviewed by a correspondent of the New York World. With a satire of the full force of which she seemed unconcious, her Majesty said the French people would be as royal to the throne as the great bulk of the English people, only the English statesmen are persons of respectability, with standing in the world, while our politicians are, in most cases, adventurers, who have everything to gain and nothing to loose." Of course she professed to be sanguine as to the probabilities of a. Bonapartist restoration, Much as people who do not know France," said she, or who are only acquainted with Paris and the large towns sneer at the idea, it is neverthe- leas true that the great mass of the French people believe in the Napoleonic dynasty and no other. Let the plebiscite of the whole nation betaken to-morrow, the next day my son would be Emperor of the French. But of this plebiscite all parties save our own are afraid. They know it would at once discover the weakness of their respective causes. From the first —ever since peace was proclaimed—we have never ceased from asking for this proof of our strength but neither M. Gambetta nor M. Thiers would grant it, nor will any Government grant it until it is demanded, as it must and will be, as the only means of deciding what the future of France is to be. It may come to-morrow; it may not come for years.; but it will come."
Ford Frederick Cavendish was elected on Tuesday, without opposition, for the Northern division of the West Riding of Yorkshire.

The Globe is able to contradict the rumour of the death of Mr. Melly, M.P., who is in excellent health.

Nothing material was elicited. NEW YORK, Monday.—A great fire has occurred at Belfast, State of Maine, doing damage to the amount of one million dollars. Two boys, aged ten years & seven years, were drowned while bathing in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at Black- burn on Wednesday night. The British Medical Journals'' special correspondent with troops at Cannock Chase reports that the sickness h is been slight, notwithstanding the bad weather.

A MISBING BRIDEGROOM.—A bridegroom has lately disappointed a bride-expectant in London. Everything was in readiness—the choir, already vested, stood in the robing-room crimson carpets were laid down from the doors to the carriages some of the guests were at the church and others at the bride's house—when an alarm was raised by the best man that the bridegroom could not be found. His wedding suit was found in the room, laid out ready to wear, but his bed had not been slept in; and no tidings have since been heard of him. GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY.—The only alterations, ia the September trains affecting this district are as follow: The 7.50 a.m. train from Swansea. to Merthyr will start at 7.45 a m., and be earlier at intermediate stations, reaching Merthyr at 9.45 a.m. in connexion with the Brecon train leaving at 9.35 a.m. The!6.25 p.m. train from Merthyr to Swansea will start at 6.40 p.m., be pro- portionately later to Hirwain, and 10 minutes later than ai present between Hirwain and Swansea.

ONE CHILD KILLED BY ANOTHER.—On Wednesday, Mr. Wm. Carter held an inquiry at the Angel Tavern, Lambeth-walk, London, into the cause of death of Eliza Heath, aged 13 months, the daughter of a carpenter, living in Mill-street, Lambeth. It appeared that a short time since the deceased was being carried through the streets by her brother, when a little child, three years of age, struck her twice in the face with a cane, causing injuries which resulted in death on Saturday last. The coroner said it was impossible to prefer a criminal charge against so young a child as the delinquent, and directed the jury so find a verdict in accordance with the medical testimony. Verdict accordingly. MR. WHALLEY AND THE CLAIMANT. — Mr. G. H. Whalley, M.P., says the Neto York Times of August 13, who lately arrived in this city in search of evidence in the Tichborne case, and who has been stopping at the fifth Avenue hotel, advertised in the morning papers, offering a reward for information about one Carl Anderson and a sailor by the name of Harry. Anderson was supposed to be on board the ship Osprey from Sandy Hook to Mel- bourne, 1854, in which also sailed the Claimant of the Tichborne estate. Mr. Whalley, in answer to the adver- tisement, received a letter on Wednesday afternoon from one John D. Slatteny, dated at the Naval Hospital in Brooklyn, stating that the writer was a shipmate of Anderson's on the voyage mentioned, and that he could give the required information in regard to his where- abouts. Mr. Whalley also stated that he got on the track of the sailor Harry, and thinks that he will in a short time procure the desired evidence. MR. H. RICHARD, M.P., AND ARBITRATION.—Mr. H. Richard has received an address from the French Society of the Friends of Peace, congratulating him on the recent vote of the House of Commons respecting arbitration. The address says: England, which haa already had the merit of striking the first blow at slavery, and at the old policy of commercial restrictions, has again, in solemnly proclaiming the condemnation of recourse to arms, struck a decisive blow against the deplorable system of armed rivalry and incurable violence, beneath which at this moment the old world groans. Not that we flatter ourselves with illusions, or expect to see demolished at once the deplorable structure that ages have in turn built up and consolidated. Aø you yourself have very justly said, it takes time—some- times a very long time—before acknowledged truth be- comes applied troth. But the first step is the most difficult. It is to get it acknowledged, and it is thie step, thanks to the indefatigable propagandism, and the benevolent men of whom you have been the organ, that England has accomplished so successfully. Hence- forth, come what may, the question of international bitratioD has entered the domain of practical policy." .J8.8
