REMINISCENCES OF A FORMER MARQUIS OF BUTE. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR,—I find there is a memorial left on record of an ancestor of the present Marquis of Bute, the.knowiedge of which is not without some interest. In the early part of the reign of George the Third, John, Earl of Bute, Viscount and Baron Mountstuart, was, in 1763, appointed Prime Minister to his Majesty. The nation being nearly exhausted by a long and expensive though successful war with France, he concluded a pjace, and then retired to enjoy a life of learned pleasure. He was a lover and encourager of learning and learned men, especially where genius and respectability of character were united in the same person. It was on this principle that he asked and obtained of his Majesty £:300 a year for Dr. Johnson, the lexicographer. Among many instances of his love to the arts, this nobleman printed, at his own expense, a bo- tanical work in nine quarto volumes of plants only apper- taining to England. Only twelve copies were printed, the expense of which amounted to klOOO! Copies were presented to the Queen, to the Duchess of Portland, M. de Buffon, Lady Susan Mackenzie, Lady Banks, and Lord Mountstuart. The rest were reserved for legacies the plates were not used again, but destroyed. His lord- ship died March 10, 1792. —Yours, &c., J.P.S.B.
PUBLIC GARDENS AND POLITICAL PUR- POSES. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR, I was very much astonished to find a large pla- card announcing a forthcoming soiree, prominently dis- played against the lodge wall, at the Sophia Gardens. A bill was also placed in the window, intimating that tickets might be purchased there. Being under the impression that the Gardens had been dedicated to the public, I was naturally surprised. But, upon enquiry, I was informed that the Agents of the Marquis of Bute leave no stone unturned with a view to make converts to their political creed. Now, I don't object to the display of energy and tact in the advancement of party purposes—indeed, I wish more were shown by the Liberals, with whom I have always voted-yet, nevertheless, it does seem to me that the turning of the lodge of a public garden—the com- mon resort of all classes and orders of the body politic- into an agency office of a Constitutional Association, as it is the custom now-a-days to call Tory organisations, is going very far beyond the legitimate range of political proselytism. --Yours, &c., Cardiff, March 5th, 1872. AN OBSERVER.
THE CARMARTHEN SCHOOL BOARD. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR,—The Carmarthen School Board has been and is still somewhat severely criticised by its once sincerest friends and staunchest supporters, but for my own part I cannot see why they should be so unjustly castigated as they are at present, on account of some of the bye-laws very recently passed by them. I firmly believe each member did his duty conscientiously, and can for any thing they have yet done, come forward again with un- blushing faces for re-election, even at the hands of Dis- senters. Let us just notice the two most important of their bye- laws. Compulsory attendance was passed, and in so doing will they not bring a blessing upon many little unfor- tunates who have not parents' thoughtful enough to con- sider the welfare of their precious charge ? Compulsion is needed in Caimarthen, and sadly needed. Then, again they have refused their aid to Denominational schools-and was not that a good resolution-for why should the majority pay for training recruits to fill up the ranks of the antagonistic minority ? Is it likely that the people should supply rates to support schools that give four days' instruction when they ought to give five ? as indeed is the case in Church schools, where one hour at least is given each day to religious teaching, and that of a decided sectarian type. The conscience clause is all bosh in such cases-for what is given instead to the Dis- senting child during that hour of religious training ? Nothing, and less than nothing—he is considered a pariah amongst the rest, and is derided by his fellow scholars who are Church recruits. Again I say, Fear not members of the School Board, ye have done gloriously." Why should Dissenters fear if compulsion crowds the pre- sent non-sectarian schools and leaves no room for the re- maining Dissenting children, they need not send them to Church schools can they not build or extend-they have the power in their own hands. Nothing in the Education Act prevents them from so doing, and, indeed, they may in conscientiously build without being in the least extrava- gant with the rate-payers money, as they would simply be doing that which is necessary—the present Church schools being decidedly unsuitable to the majority of those ratepayers. Let not the members of this Board get squabbling with each other over what they have done and could not well agree about, but let them rather look about them bestir themselves at once and do something effectual—it can be done. Let each one do his duty. The people, the Dissenters, call for your immediate action. March 3rd, 1872. MARMION.
THE LATE EARL MAYO. Further details respecting the assassination of the late Viceroy have come to hand, from which we learn that the post-mortem examination of the body of the deceased showed one incised wound extending obliquely and inwards to the spine. The second wound was of the same size, and was situated above the superior angle of the left scapula, passing d6wnwards to the cavity of the chest. The assassin denied that he had any accomplices. He stated that it was his fate, and that he had committed the deed by order of God. The precise moment of Lord Mayo's death was not ascertained. After his lordship was stabbed he was im- mediately taken on board the launch. Every effort was made to stop the flow of blood from the shoulder by rubbing the extremities, but all was of no avail. Death took place before the launch reached the Glasgow.
THE TICHBORNE CASE. After upwards of one hundred days of patient and laborious investigation, and nearly nine months from the May morning when Mr. Serjeant Ballantine first opened the ease of the claimant to the Tichborne title and estates, in the Court of Common Pleas, at West- minster Hall, the Jury have at length declared them- selves satisfied. Subject to the directions of Lord Chief Justice Bovill, and to the desire of the counsel to add to the enormous mass of testimony already before the Court, the Foreman, speaking on behalf of him- self and his ten colleagues, has formally announced that no furthur evidence is required. The restraints which are, for sufficient reasons, imposed upon public journalists in treating of matters still pending in a court of law, forbid us, for the present, to attempt to estimate the significance of this abrupt, but not altoge- ther unexpected, interposition. But whatever may be the verdict which the Jury have now declared themselves ready to deliver, it cannot be said that these long-suffer- ing gentlemen have been either rash or negligent. The Attorney-General, in expressing his readiness to abstain from troubling them with further evidence, and Mr. Serjeant Ballantine, while asking a brief delay for the purpose of communicating with his juniors, have Ween equally emphatic in their acknowledgments of the attention and care bestowed upon the case by those in whose hands the decision ultimately lies. Never were compliments further removed from the cha- racter of mere words of course. The haphazard and uaequal system under which our juries are empanelled has in this instance, at least, achieved a practical success. Up to Wednesday last, when a two hours' wrangle between counsel over dry points of law evoked from the Judge a reference to the fact that the trial had reached its hundredth day, followed by a pro- test on the part of the Jury against so much time being wasted, no token of anything but resignation has es- caped from the lipa of those now historically famous eleven.
THE QUHEN AND WINDSOR STEEPLECHASES. Her Majesty the Queen, while out for a drive on Monday afternoon, about twenty minutes past five o'clock, and after the Windsor steeplechases were over for the day, was blocked in by the cabs and vehicles leaving the course. Mr. Inspector Mansell was fortunately present, and, aided by a number of the 1st Life Guards cleared a passage, and her Majesty passed through the crowd smiling.

CURIOUS CHARGE OF FRAUD. Mr. Frederick Cox, described as honorary secretary of the Free Dormitory Association, appeared before Mr. Newton, at the Marlborough street police court, on Monday, on a curious charge of fraud. It was alleged that, by means of illegally using the names of several well-known nobleman and ministers ot religion, he had succeeded in collecting 23,000 last year, besides two sums of 21,000 each, sent by anonymous donors, the whole of which money he had fraudulently used for his own purposes. —————
THE CONSEQUENTIAL" CLAIMS. In a letter to the New York World Mr. Elihu Burritt remarks :—" After all the brilliant speeches and arguments that have been made to sustain them, I would ask any intelligent and dispas- sionate American if he believes these consequen- tial damages' would be admitted by our Supreme Court at Washington if they were submitted to its decision, with the best legal counsel in America to plead for them, and without a single English lawyer to speak on the other side. I will go a little further. If England had served us as Germany did France, should we have had the heart and face to put upon her a heavier fine than the bill of costs that M.. Sumner presented in his great oration ? Now, to my mind, it is these claims that touch the very core of our national dignity. No one believes they can be admitted. The treaty itself constructively excludes their consideration in providing only and specifically for the settlement of direct damages. Then, what is the object of injecting them into our case ?' It is a miserable parallel, but it looks like what sharp slop' dealers call an Irish price upon their goods, from which they may descend to a profitable bargain themselves and at the same time please their purchasers with* the sense or assurance of a large re- u r"lers o rt v g j I "tl jJ['LU..HJt ;d.J.\J1U" MILLION u, Dr:, Ub- livered on Thursday evenings, by distinguished men. Remarks on the successive mining schools of Corn- 0 wall, by Mr. J. H. Collins, the present teacher of the class s of the Miners' Association of Cornwall, are just published. His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, K.G., has kindly promised to take the chair at the next annual meeting of the Royal National Life Boat Institution, which will be held on Monday, the 8th of April, at the Mansion House, by permission of the Lord Mayor of London. Some important experiments were made in Mr. France's quarries at Nant Mawr, near Oswestry, with lithofracteur, in the presence of the War Office Com- mittee on Explosives. The result of a large number and considerable variety of experiments appears to have been to show that lithofracteur is a useful explosive compound, that the preservation and carriage of it is unattended by danger, and that it will not explode by percussion unless between plates of iron. The Astronomer Royal of Scotland has issued a short notice on the Rock Thermometers at the Royal Obser- vatory, Edinburgh, in which he indicates the probable connexion of some, at least, of our meteorological phe- nomena with the production of visible sun-spots. Mr. Piazzi Smyth desires to advance our knowledge so far as to arrive at some approximate indications of the character of the seasons for a year, or two before- hand." The Scotch Education League is gaining in strength. A large and influential meeting waslately held in Dundee when resolutions were unanimously passed approving generally of the Lord Advocate's Education Bill and for the speedy settlement of the question in Scotland it was resolved to form an association in affiliation with the Scottish National Education League. The prin- ciples of the League, as our readers are aware, are compulsory attendance, the rejection of the denomi- national system, exclusion of sectarian formularies from schools, and establishment of School Boards with func- tions solely administrative.

The bed of the river Liffey, which emitted a very offensive odour during the recent warm weather, was most satisfactorily disin- fected by Chloralum powder, at the rate of only one pound per 25 square feet.

There are_ few superficial injuries, inflamma- tions, or discharges in which its judicious prescription is not at- tended with great advantage, and it is of equal value in many in- ternal disorders. Chloralum in hospital has been used at the Royal Infirmary, Manchester, to destroy the foetor in cases of open cancer at Middlesex hospital in amputations in small-pox and fever wards generally, as the most pleasant and most active disin- fectant. Chloralum is an astringent antiseptic applied to foul ulcers by London surgeons, as a gargle in scarlet fever, diphtheria, and common sore throats, and has been found invaluable in in- flammation of the eyes, &c.
