A telegram through the cable corroborates the state- ment of Mr. Gladstone, that Mr. Fish's reply to Earl Granville left by Saturday's mail. The principal jour- nals agree in representing its tone as eminently pacific. Trespassers in the vicinity of Royalty are likely, after recent events, to meet with condign punishment. Charles James, a clerk, having forced himself into a position near the Queen's waiting-room at Paddington Station, when her Majesty was about to depart for Windsor, refused to move when requested, and as- saulted the police who ejected him. For this little es- capade he was brought up at Marylebone Police-court, and Mr. Mansfield fined him 95, or in default two V months' hard labour in the House of Correction. The money was not forthcoming. A CURIOUS CALCULATION.—The Barrow Times, says that the speech of Sir John Coleridge in the Tichborne cise occupied 140 hours, and is perhaps the longest speech on record. It is true that Burke's speech in the Warren Hastings trial, the whole of which lasted 148 days, has been oftentimes quoted as a specimen of f orensic endurance, but it lasted only a little more than three days, merely a ninth part of the time occupied by the Attorney-General. Brougham's speech on behalf of Queen Caroline, Lord Campbell's charge in the easo of Palmer, and Lord Hope in the case of Madeline Snith, occupied from seven to nine hours each. If average rates be calculated, then Sir John Coleridge must have ripoken at the rate of 20 of our columns per diem of closely printed matter. Now 26 days' speaking gives 520 ordinary newspaper columns, containing, as near as may be 112,000 lines—about one million words. If these 520 columns were stretched out end to end they would measure nearly 780 feet, and were the lines extended in the same way would measure about a mile and three-quarters, taking each of the 520 columns at an average weight of 18 pounds, then the required Treight of type would approximately be 9,360 pounds, or 4 tons and 400 pounds.
