DEATH OF COLONEL POULETT SOMERSET. We regret to have to announce the death of Colonel Poulett George Henry Somerset, C. B -who died a few days agoatDundrumnear Dublin, at the comparatively early age of 53. He was the only son of General Lord Charles Henry Somerset, second son of Henry fith Duke of Beaufort, by his second marriage with Lady Mary, second daughter of John, fourth Earl Poulett. He entered the army in March, 1839, and served in the Coldstream Guards. He served on the staff in the Eastern campaign of 1854 as aide de-camp to his uncle, Lord Raglan. He was present at the battles of the Alma, Balaclava, lnkerman (where his horse was killed by a shell), and the siege of Sebasto- pol, for which he received the medal and four clasps in 1855-was nominated a Companion of the Order of the Bath, and also received the Order of the Medjidie of the fourth class and Turkish medal. He retired from the Coldstream Guards in March, 1854, and finally retired from the service by the sale of his com- mission in February, 1863. Colonel Somerset had also served in the 7th Fusiliers and 1st Durham Militia. The late Colonel sat for several years in the House of Commons—namely from 1859 to 1871, as one of the representatives of Monmouthshire, having vacated his seat in the latter year to make room for his kinsman, Lord Henry Somerset, the present member. The late Colonel Somerset married first, 15th April, 1847, Barbara Augusta Norah, daughter of the late Mr. John Mytton, of Halston Hall, Salop, which lady died in June, 1870. He married, secondly, Emily, daughter of Mr. John Hubert Moore, and leaves issue by both marriages.
DEATH OF THE REV. WILLIAM PHILLIPS. We announce, with sincere regret, the death of the Rev. William Phillips, for many years curate of Risca, and chaplain to the Newport Union Work- house. The ead event took place about midnight on the 9th instant, at Great Oak Farm, a few miles from this town. Mr. Phillips' illness had been of long duration, and waa borne with the patience and resig- nation which might be looked for in the case of a thoroughly Christian man. By unflagging devotion to the duties of his sacred office, by irreproachable con- sistency, and by uniform courtesy, he had endeared himself to a numerous circle of friends-while the poor with whom be was brought into contact in the discharge of his official duties at the Workhouse, will mourn over the loss of a sincere friend and a sympa- thising pastor. The removal of such a man, who illustrated the lessons he taught in a gentle and un- ostentatious, yet diligent, Christian life, occasions a vacancy which it will not be easy to fill. Mr. Phil- lips' death was pathetically referred to by the Chair- man and other members of the Board of Guardians on Saturday last, and among the many warmly-commen- datory utterances of the speakers, not one was too atrong to set forth the excellencies of a man whose death all who knew him will deplore. He was a son of the late Capt. Phillips, of Great Oak Farm, and was 54 years of age. His remains were interred in the family vault, at Bassalleg, on Tuesday, in the pre- sence of a large concourse of persons. The children of the Risca Church Sunday school and of the Wes- leyan Sunday school attended. A procession, cemposed mainly of the children re- ferred to, with some adults, was led to the house of the deceased by the Rev. Hugh Williams, vicar of Risca. They formed in line each side of the en- trance, and as the corpse was brought out and rested at the door, the hyma Brief life is here our portion," was sung by the whole assembly, with thrilling effect. The coffin was then placed in the hearse, and, followed by four mourning coaches, the funeral train started on its way to the parish church. The burial service was read by the Rev. E. Davies, curate of Pillgwenlly.
OPENING OF A "BRITISH WORKMAN" PUBLIC HOUSE. The foes of undue imbition of strong drink yester- day opened what is termed a British Workman Public House, at Newport, the object of which appears to be to give the working classes an oppor- tunity of enjoying recreation, and partaking of creature comforts (minus beer, &c.,) without the necessity of visiting inns. The venture is in the hands of a company with a nominal capital of £1000 in 10s. shares. No. 51, Commercial-road, has been purchased and fitted up with a dining room, bedrooms, &c., and at the rear an erection 40 feet by 20 feet and 25 feet high, well lighted, has been constructed in which skittles, bagatelle, draughts, and other games may be engaged in. A public luncheon took place .yesterday in the recreation room, over which the Mayor (B. Evans, Esq.) presided. An ample repast was placed on the table in a first class manner by Mr. Bland, confectioner, Commercial-street. The Mayor, in some well chosen observations, expressed his sym- pathy with the movement, and was followed by Mr. Smith, schoolmaster, from whose remarks we gather that the institution is to be conducted on the self- supporting principle. At present, out of the 2000 shares, only 400 have been taken, the number of shareholders being 72, rather disheartening facts when it is considered that jE400 has been expended. Mr. Smith read a letter from Mr. Cordes, M. P. (who took the tirst 20 shares in the company) expressing his regret that he could not be present. The letter was dated from North Wales, but the hon. gentleman was then about to proceed to Scotland. Letters of apology were also read from Mr. Charles Lewis and Mr. H. J. Parnall. Mr. Silas Short, of Bristol, gave an account of similar undertakings in Bristol, and advised the directors to sell cocoa, &c., at Jd. per cup, stating that this was the secret of the success which had attended the Bristol experiments. Mr. Scholfield also ad- dressed the assembly as the representative of the United Kingdom Alliance, and the proceedings for the time being closed with a vote of thanks to the Mayor, moved by Mr. F. J. Heybyrne, the secretary to the company. At six p.m. a tea took place which was followed by an entertainment, consisting of music, addresses, recitations, &c. —r~L i'.JI III III HHBBgH—m
A SWIM TO THE STEEP HOLM. On Wednesday morning, Mr. H. Garrett, wrangler and M.A. of King's College, Cambridge, youngest son of the Rev. Thomas Garrett, successfully accomplished the feat of swimming from Weston-super-Mare to the Steep Holm, a distance, making allowance for devia- tion from a straight course, of not less than nine miles. Mr. Garrett entered the water at 26 minutes past ten o'clock, from a point about 200 yards north-east of the pier jetty, a boat, containing a couple of seamen and a personal friend, shaping out the course, by •being pulled slightly in advance of the swimmer. Duriag the journey Mr. Garrett was frequently asked During the journey Mr. Garrett was frequently asked if he required any kind of refreshment, but this he in I each instance declined, declaring himself to be quite comfortable. Six miles of the distance the tide was each instance declined, declaring himself to be quite comfortable. Six miles of the distance the tide was cross and choppy, but this appeared to be even less impediment to the swimmer than to those who were piloting him. A pleasant and continuous conversa- tion was kept up between Mr. Garrett and his friends 4or nearly the whole of the distance, and on his reach- ing the Steep Holin, at 18 minutes to one o'clock, he was met by Host Harris, of the Island Inn, wrapped in blankets, and taken to the hostelry, where, after .partaking of hot coffee, he declared himself to be quite well, and free from fatigue, in proof of which he soon after ascended the almost precipitous rocks to the summit of the fortifications. Mr. Garrett, it should be added, has been a total abstainer for nearly 15 years, and in performing his feat of crossing by no means the most tranquil portion of the Bristol Chan- nel, wore no kind of dress. -Bri-itol Times and Mirror.

THRI FLOODS IN FRANCE. One Hundred Lives Lost. — I be Floodaiu the valleys of the Tarn and the He- rault have subsided, but the damage tney have caused 3eems greater, than at first reported. About one hundred persons have lost their lives, and the damage to the vineyards is considerable. Railway communi- cation is interrupted at several points. An accurate estimate of the damage cannot be obtained for some time. The disaster seems to have been caused by a couple of terrific storms. The sea broke over the rail- way where it runs near the coast, the rivers over- flowed their banks, and a waterspout completed the calamity. A Russian, named Tirzoff, has been charged at Bow s'reet, London, with stealing pictures ot the value of s<- vend thousand pounds, the property of Baron Anuable De Beville. He had been entrusted with 'he pic to sell on commission, and pawned several of the; ><. ■London. A number of others he refused U acco-i.i;? for. 1 lie ca-e was remanded.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE QUEEN. The Queen, through General Ponsonby, has sent a special communication to the yachtsmen of the Isle of Wight and the South Coast, requesting the discontinu- ance of the practice of private yachts in the Solent approaching too near the Royal yacht when her Majesty is on board, "it being evident," the Royal letter adds, that such a proceeding must at all times be attended with considerable risk, and in summer, when the Solent is crowded with vessels, such manoeuvres are extremely dangerous."

GRRAT FIRE IN FINSBURY. £ 50,000 DAMAGE, AND SEVERAL PERSONS INJURED. Soon after half-past ten o'clock on Tuesday night, a fire broke out in the wholesale cabinetmaking and upholstery works-of Mr. William Walker, 119, Bunhill row, London. M-r. Walker's premises were stored with yellow pine, a highly inflammable stock, and the fire got such a hold before the flames burst out that it was evident at the outsst that nothing could save the build- ing. The front of the premises is four stories high besides the basement, and there are 14 windows on each floor, the building being divided into two parts by a central gateway. At eleven o'clock the fire was in possession of the right wing, and the flames rolled through the 21 windows of the three upper stories, and half across the street. In half an hour, with almost the rapidity of a discharge of fireworks, the fire ran across to the o-her wing, and in a tWw minutes the scena-became indescribably grand. A /;hme some 80 feet long, from oU feet to liO feet in height, and varying in thickness from a cumalous mass cf a few feet to a fisry tongue of eighteen or twenty, spread out from and towered above the devoted build- ing. The heat was intense, and was felt uncomfortably ai a considerable distance down the srreet. The flames soon began to scorch the opposite houses, and the damp cloths hung from the windows were singed till they fell. The works and timber-yard extended some dis- tance back, and the whole area was one seething, biasing, fiery furnace. Very speedily nine steam fire engines and four hand engines, with between forty ani fifty men of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, under tha command of Captain Shaw, were on the spot, and surrounded the fire with hose. Powerful jets of water streamed upon the fire produced no effest, and it sosn became evident that it would require immense efforts on the part of the brigade to prevent a disaster to adjacent property.. The streets were crowded by thousands of persons- who had seen the flames from afar, and they were kept from incommoding the workers by a strong force of the metropolitan police. Shortly before twelve-o'clock the roof fell in, a blaze shot up to a height 3f 150 feet, and the sparks fell in thick showers upon the bystanders. A brisk east wiad rather contributed to the progress of the fire. At twenty minutes past twelve the main wall of the cabinet works fell in with a terrible crash, carrying with it two of the firemen, who were terribly, if not fatally injured. They were at once taken in cabs to the hospital. The latest particulars, gathered on Wednesday, concerning the outbreak of this terrific conflagration give no tidings of the origin of the disaster. It seems that at eight o'clock the premises were. left, as it was thought, secure for the night. In appearance the building looks as though it had recently been constructed, but it is of fully nine years' stand- ing.. There were a large number of workmen employed, and the workshops- were situated at the rear of the premises. It is at this part the fire is thought to have originated, as flames were seen at about half-past ten coming from that direction. A large quantity of material was stored in the premises, as well as an immense amount of work already finished, the whole of which, together with the workmen's tools, are en- timely consumed. Within a few minutes of the out- break of the fire the steam-engines from Whitecross street were quickly on the spot, hut so rapidly did the flames spread that the whole of the building was com- pletely enveloped before their arrival. Indeed, the heat was so great at this time that the firemen were unable to work. No less than five other persons were injured by vehicles, owing to the crowded state of the thoroughfare, but the whole of them were attended to at the hospital, and then sent to their homes. It is stated that the damage will amount to, £50,000.

ANOTHER VICTIM OF THE ASHANT!lEW An.-The death is announced of Major Farquharson, Y.C., who entered the army in January, 1855. He was with his regiment in the Crimean War, including the siege and fall of Sebastopol, for which lie received a medal with claap, and Turkish medal. He was als«v in the campaign in 1857-58 against the mutineers in India, including the actions at Cawnpore, Seraighat, Kudygunge, and Shumsabad, siege and fall of Ludsnow, and assault of the Martiniere and Banks Bungelow, and received the Victoria Cross for storming a bastion mounting two guns, which he spiked, and so rendered the advanced position secure. He was severely wounded on the fol- lowing morning, For his services in India he received a medal with clasp, and pension. In 1874 he was sant to the Gold Coast, and became staff-officer to Colonel M'Leod, commanding the advanced guard was present at the battle of Borborassie, Amoaful, Bequah, Ordahsu, and capture of Coomassie, and washonouirably mentioned in despatches. His death was accelerated by exposure and the effects of climate at the Gold Coast, from which he returned invalided, and never recovered from the attack. CLOSE OF TIIE SALMON FISHING IN THE TWEED.— On Tuesday the net salmon fishings in the Tweed closed tor the season. It has been the most unpro- ductive experienced for many years, and the more to be wondered at that the previous year's fishing was also of a very unproductive character. During last season the yield of fish was compared with the pre- vious year, 40,000 fewer. This year salmon have yielded fbout one-third under an average, grilse have been better than last, but decidedly under an average, and trout much less than last year. Altogether the year's fishing has been under an average of the last 1;") years. This year's produce of trout has been the smallest on record on the Tweed. Very few large salmon have been caught. The largest this season was caught last week,:and weighed 14lbs. Among the causes alleged for the [scarcity of fish in the Tweed is the pollution of the water in the tIpper districts, and the want of floods to induce the lisn to enter the river. Owing to the scarcity a great loss will fall upon the lessees of fisheries. It has been computed that in the commercial waters the loss will amount to several thousand pounds, considerably more than one-half of the rental. The Berwick Fisheries Ct mpany, who own and lease the greater pnrt of the fisheries will be the principal losers. In the beginning of the season prices were comparatively low, but towards the close the prices increased. Captain Webb has returned to London from Dover. He hns been visiting the Cambridge Music Hall, and, being reoog ised by the audience, he was enthusiasti- cally cheered, and had to bow his thanks. The per- formance in errupted until he went away again.
LONDON LETTER. LOSRON, Thursday. It is a pity that the name of Mr. Plimsoll should nave to be used in connection with a caution. It ap- pears, however, that the movement for raising a statue to him has led to abuses, and strong suspicions are entertained that money has been collected which will not be applied to statuesque purposes. Whether the suspicions arise out of the poor response which has been made to the appeal I am unable to say, but it will be as well if those who desire to subscribe to the fund send their contributions to the treasurer direct. The movement is not one which has universal sympathy, and can hardly be regarded as loading to the best means of rewarding Mr. Plimsoll for his labours in a great cause. Mr. E. J. Reed has a critic not to be despised in Colonel Strange, whose letter the Times refers to as that of a gallant officer well-known in connection with scientific instruction." Such gentlemen ought not, however, to interfere with the fairy lore of child- hood. It may not be quite so sacred as the text of Shakespeare, but it ought neither to be misquoted nor I misrepresented, especially when by a lieutenant-colonel it is placed in juxtaposition with Gulliver and the Bible story of David and Goliath. I read Colonel Strange's letter with interest till I read the last words, but when I found him writing about Jack the Giaut Killer climbing his bean stalk to victory," and treating two of childhood's favourite heroes as one, I could not help hoping that he knows more of scientific instruc- tion than the realms of giant life and fairy folk. The new Roman Catholic Club, known by the name of the Tiara, is ready for the opening, which, I under- stand, is to be made the occasion of something like a politico-religious demonstration. Cardinal Manning is to preside at the inaugural dinner, and will, it is anticipated, deliver an address which will have rather more general interest than that dignitary's utterances usually have. Unless the Tiara has better success than the Stafford, it might be better to let it begin its career as unpretentiously na possible. Among gentlemen of the press" it was on Saturday evening well understood and definitely stated that London would this weeii Snd itself with one morning journal the less. From* having been practically in Chancery" for some weeks, it had got into Chaneery really, and the appointment of a liquidator on Satur- day afternoon was taken to mean that the journal was not again to make its appearance.' So prevalent was this opinion, that on Sunday night when the typos should have come on duty few of them turned up, and a scratch staff had to be obtained in order that the paper might make its appearance the'nextday. It appears that the liquidators, in the interests of the shareholders, consented to continue the publication for a limited period, in order that it might he offered for sale as a continuing journal. Accordingly it is advertised for sale. We are in for a sensation in London, and London,, you may depend, will take full advantage of it in these dull times. The Whitechapel mystery is destined to, take its place beside the Greenacre murder, the Water- loo Bridge tragedy, and other criisies which London seems to commit and to discover in its own fashion, and then to "devour" in a way whw?h few provincial towns surpass in eagerness. In this ease London may be forgiven. The Commercial road murder has in it all the elements of a tragic romance associated with reality. The details will probably be looked for in the provinces with less interest than we look for theiu in London,. Only because we know the scene, and the morbid among us can journey to the .spot, whence the body wa& taken, where the blood-stained hatchet was discovered, where the supposed murderers were arrested, and, if they like, may perhap3- see and hear the examination of the prisoners. Those who do not condescend to this will be amply provided for by full details in amy one of a dozen or more daily journals. The next week or two will be a bad time fort the making of political speeches. It is my fortune, good or bad, to pass- frequently through the purlieus of Drury lane and Clare market, It is a rare- place for the study of low life in London, and offers as wide a field for missionary effort, I be- lieve, as any uncivilised portion of the inhabited earth. The territory,, bounded by the Strand, Bow street, Great Queen street, Lincoln's-inn-Fields, down to west of the site of the new law courts, behind St. Clement's Inn, you may mark out on your map of the metropolis as the abode of the most squalid of poverty, the most wretched existence, and the most degraded of vices. I would not venture into its mazy windings after dusk, unless I was anxious to become the hero of risky adventures. Into this locality tho managers of the Peabodv trust are about to obtrude, and it is in contemplation to bring the district under the operation of the Dwellings Act of last session. No place could be found which seems to require im- p'ovement more than this, or where pure air and healthy hooiea would be a greater godsend than they would be here. Yet the determination of the Peabody Trustees is creating some consternation, and is likely to be met with some opposition in quarters where it should be least expected. The poiice are greatly con- cerned. The adoption of the plan will scatter people whose whereabouts they would prefer knowing,. and whose last thoughts will be to seek to be- come tenants- of the improved houses. Others ask where the people will go when disturbed. Their London is already too full, because it has with all our extensions and building operations, under- gone the paradoxical operation of becoming more cir- cumscribed every vear. To pull down here means to enhance the evils of overcrowding. The proposed soheme, therefore, should not be carried out without grave consideration, and until it is quite settled that nothing but what, in a surgical point of view might be compared to amputation, will meet the evil. The revenues derived from these homes of squalor and filth go to support ducal splendour and ease. If the authority of the nuisance inspector and the dake's coronet were oftener in collision, and if the scavenger devoted as much of his attention to these slums as to the thoroughfares in which it is less required, there- might be no necessity to improve even such people as inhabit the neighbourhood of Clara Market. off the fa,-e- of the sarth.
O11 Sunday a dense fog prevailed in Dublin and' oft the coast. FrOllt ail early hour it was so thick that I hardly two feet a head could be seen. It cleared off about nine a.m. 11 r.

He was the light-weight jockey to George IV. when his Majesty was Prince of Wale3. ROMAN CATHOLIC EDUCATION.—Monsignor Cupel, in a lecture at St. Alexander's, Bootle, on Sunday,, said there is now no learning to be obtained in Protestant Universities or Protestant schools which is not placed within the rf-ach of Catholics. The Monsignor made an indirect appeal for aid to the college at Kensington. Messrs. Henry Smith and Co. and John Sbnrp, mill- owners, of Dundee, having refused to withdraw a notice of 5 per rent. reduction, have paid the wages earned up to the 9th instant, and closed their mills. Two thousand people are idle. This second strike has occurred without consultation with the Relief Committee. FEMALE SAVAO.EKY IN LIVERPOOL.—The Liverpool police have apprehended a woman nareed Catherine Shepherd, who some days back quarrelled with her aunt, Anne Lamble, and worried her with her ti'e! h in the arm. The injured woman was taken to the workhouse hospital, and her condition became so criti- ral that on Saturday it was deemed advisable to take her deposition. AN ANCIENT TURTLE.—An extrict from a Colombo • letter is published in Laud and Watery in «hicii it is j stated that in the compound at Colombo is an enor- mous tortoise, which belonged to one of the former kings of Xandy, and then to thefirsi English Governor of Ceylon, It is known to be oven- '.100 years old, a; d supposed to be from 250 to 300 years old. It is about < five feet long and four feet wide, head and tail not in- cluded.

The crew, three in number, I fortunately managed to get hold of ropes thrown from the vessel, and were savod. The scene was a mos: ex- citing one, and the men when rescued were much exhausted, although no serious consequences are likely to follow.

FRANCE. PAIIJ'S, Sept. 11.—The statement is denied that Gen. Pa Jal, tho Commander-in-Chief of the Eastern divi- sion, paid a visit to the Empress Eugenie. Bonapartist journals had mistaken somebody of the same name for the General. PARIS, Sept. lL-Notwithstanding great difficulties, the Protestant theological faculty in Paris has been nearly completed, under the patronage of three mem- bers of the National Assembly. PARIS, Sept. 1] .-The France of this evening says that from information derived from a good source it has reason to believe that a change is impending in the traditional policy of the Right Centre, which is due to the wishes of the Orleans Princes themselves. They will, it is said, renounce every eventual claim to the Throne, and adhere unreservedly to the Republic. The France maintains that the recent declaration of the organ of the Orleanists in favour of the Republic is definitive and final. PARIS, September 13.—A violent gale raged in the Mediterranean yesterday. Several parts of Franks have experienced storms and the' rivers have over- flowed their banks. The rich plains of Vignobles, between Besiers and Narbonne, are inundated. Many houses are destroyed.
GERMANY. BKRLJX, Sept. 11 (Evening).—The Offieiel Gazette publishes a letter of thanks from the Emperor of Ger- many, in reply to the numerous addresses of congratu- lation, which had reached him during the summer, on the occasion of the uniting of the Hanoverian Memo- rial, the anniversaries of the German victories, and especially of the capitulation of Sedan. FUERSTENSTEIN (SILESIA), Sept. 11.—The Emperor William arrived here this afternoon from Striegan, where he had been present at the military manoeuvres, on a visit to Prince Pless, the master of the hounds.

THE CARLIST WAR. MADRID, Sept. 11.—A Cabinet Council of six hours' duration took plaee to-day. Senor Canovas do Cas- tillo, the President of the Council, did everything in his power to prevent a rupture of the Conciliation" coalition in the Cabinet; but he did not succeed in his efforts, and the entire Ministry placed ita resignation in the- hands of King Alfonso; The Marquis de Malins. Spanish ambassador at Paris, is also believed to hav £ sent in his resignation. It is thought probable that the King will entrust Senor Canovas with the formation of a new Cabinet, in which case only the portfolios of Foreign Affairs, Justice, and Public W orship will change hands. Telegrams from the northern provinces state that jealous dissen- sions have arisen between the bands led by Dorre- garay and those under the command of Perulas owing to the former leader having been appointed by Don Carlos commander-in-chief of the Carlists in the north. The Carlists- in the Basque Pro- vinces are vividly impressed, it is stated, with the accounts of the privations and hardships suffered by Dorregaray's band during the recent escape into Navarre by forced mi relies along the French frontier. They are said to be despairing of the ultimate success of Don Carlos, now that his bands have been so much reduced. General Martinez Campos has started in pursuit of Saballs. IRUS, Sept. y lI.-General Reina,. who is operating in the Upper Navarre, has, by a strategic movement, turned the left wing of the Carlists, and occupied Navarenes. Dorregaray is with Don Carlos at Tolosa. MADRID, September 12.—The King summoned a council of the retiring ministers at nine o'clock last night, being desirous of their views upon the condition of affairs. Senor Canovas de Castillo, it is said, would only consent to preside over a Liberal Cabinet of Conciliation. MADRID, September 12 (Morning),—A new Ministry has baen formed, and is composed as follows :-General Joyellar, President of the Council and Minister of War; Senor Alcala Galianos, Foreign Affairs; Senor Calderon Callantes.

PARIS, Sep'. 12 (Evening).—According to private advices, the new Spanish Ministry, represents the triumph of the principle of universal, suffrage at the elections for the Cortes. Senor Canovas de Castillo wiU probably be President of the future Chamber of Deputies. MADIMD, Sept. 13.- With regard to the-recent Minis- terial crisis, it has transpired that the three Ministers who represented the old party, being adverse to the maintenance of universal suffrage, sent in their resig- nation in opposition to the wishes- of Senor Kava- nas- di Castello, who urged that the Government ousht to respect the state of affairs legally esta- blished, and leave to the future Cortes the task of modifying the Electoral Law, if any alteration should then be considered necessary. The King there- upon requested Senor Kanavas di Castello to form a new Cabinet, but he declined the task on the ground that, having for a long time presided1 over a Cabinet which represented the conciliation of the old parties, he ought not to remain in power at the head of one party only. King Alfonso consequentJy expressed his gratitude to the late Premier, and entrusted General Jovellar with the formation of the CrJaiaet, the list of which has already been telegraphed. This Cabinet, which is more homogeneous and Liberal than its pre- decessor, was constituted with the concnarence of Senor Kanavas di Castillo.

THE EMPRESS OF AUSTRIA THROWN FROM IIEH HORSE. SARSELEK, Sept. 13.—The Empress of Austria was thrown from her horse on Saturday, but escaped with- out serious injury. PARIS, September 13.-The advices received at the Austrian Embassy from Sassetot are to the effect that the Empress Elizabeth, though much shaken and her head disturbed from the fall from her horse, is not seriously injured. The fall was caused by the horse, while in a. brisk canter, putting his foot on something which caused him to slip. This caused a sudden stop, and the rider was pitched over the head of the animal.— Daily News telegram.
