Our merchant shipowners do not seem to be de- riving any particular benefit from the commerce with our Indian empire. Freightage from Calcutta has fallen from about 50s to 17s (ii per ton and we are told that one shipiwner alone in the city has dropped £ 1400 on each of the last seven ships from that port. Miss Beckwith, who astonished us some little time since by swimming ten miles in the Thames before she was 15 years of age, will, we hear, shortly make an attempt to swim twice the distance. Should she succeed, she will probably try the passage fromTJover to Calais. In a court in Whitechapel, London, an old man and his wife were brutally beaten by a neighbour with a poker on Tuesday morning. The man died in the course of the afternoon, and the woman is in a precarious stare. The murderer is still at large. The Earl of Aylesford, who last week figured -o ignominously in the Divorce Court, is not only the fortunate owner of nearly 20,000 broad acres in three counties, but is also the patron of seven livings—Ashby a and Saxel^y, Leicestershire: Red worth, Bickenhill, Meriden, and Paekington, Warwickshire and Ditton, in Kent. A VIOLENT POLICEMAN AT CARDIFF.—J. Driscoll, a young man, living in Christina-street, Cardiff, with his parents, was charged at the Cardiff police- court, on Monday, with beinsr disorderly and threatening to stab P.C. John Thomas. The de- fendant had, it was alleged, broke open the door of a neighbour's house. The constable intertcred, and attempted to take him into custody, when the defendant, who had a knife in his hand, threatened to run it into him. The constable knocked him down with a blow from his fist, and took the knife from him. The mother of the defendant wlt, called, and she stated that her son was subject to fits, and though generally very quiet, was at rirno attacked by periods of insanity. He was very weak, and the constable knocked him down on the doorstep, not from any threats from the defendant.. but. troui bad temper on the part of the. policeman. She attempted to screen her son, and speak to Uv constable, when lie struck her also a violent blow on the breast, the effect of which she felt for s.rae time afterwards. The policeman did not deny that he might have struck the woman, and Mr Jones expressed strong dissatisfaction at the policeman's conduct. He must (Mr Jones said) be a very violent man to knock down the defendant, vho evidently was too weak to make any resistance,but it was considerable worse to strike the woman who had not been guilty of any offence. Dr. Paine subsequentle, at the request of Mr James, exam- ined the defend iiit and stated that he had no doubt that he was suffering from insanity. The bench directed that he should be sent to the union pre- vionsly to b-c< sent to a lunatic asylum.
