J ONDON, Friday Night. The air has been j n of rumours to-day regarding the result uf yesterday's confer- ence between the committee of the Cabinet and the responsible leaders of the Opposi- tion, at the clubs are to be met more than a few who are as positive in their statements concerning it as if they had been present at the fathering:.

There was of specuiai'o^ among the gue: b ch Giadst^Lo OJub am- ner yesterday < o»>i?i- as lo the line Mr I Courtney wou'-«' taka -a rcspo:,di;ig t- th: toast of the Go • r.rr>m.,ai. The rumour had j again been floa;, long since mu, retirement should follow the Ministerial promulgation of any scheme of redistribu- tion which did not provide for proportional representation, Mr Courtney's resignation might almost hourly be expected, and this gave a certain piquancy to the proceedings, soma ingenuous spirits being prepared to hear the Secretary to the Treasury intimate his withdrawal from the Govern- ment in the very act of responding to the toast of its health. I'here -was, however, nothing quite so dramatic in store for the Marylebone Liberals who had assembled to testify their regard for Mr Gladstone, for Mr Courtney, after a passing reference to the general ignorance concerning the pro- mised scheme, devoted himself to show- ing that there is still much to be done before Ireland can be considered to be ruled upon" Irish ideas." The Times is of opinion that Mr Courtney be- trayed "a shade of bitterness" in that part of his speech which related to Redis- tribution, but this was not the impression of those present. On the contrary, he appeared to be in a much better humour than usual both with himself and all around. h" .J. 11 t wa ■. .V. I tlia ^roat body of tor National:si 5 had abs o ?r.-m v.

Mr Clarke showed me the manuscript of Mr Gladstone's statement. It covers eight closely written p?ges, and supplies fresh evidence of the mar- vellous industry and power of work of the Prime Minister. Speaking the other day to 1. friend, Mr Gladstone said that during the iast 30 years, a period which includes the greater portion of his ministerial career, he has never been so overburdened with work as just now. Yet he finds time to dictate eight pages of manuscript for the confusion of a gentleman who, without any special qualification or authority, attacks his system of finance.
