THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL.'—We understand that this emi- nent legal functionary has just been served with a writ, in an action for penalties incurred by alleged bribery at the Horsham election, to the amount of £ 10,,000-. Three .eminent counsel are retained.,ancl. the cause, we are told, will be tried at the next summer assizes for Sussex.—John Bull. YIIE JELECTUESS OP BAVABIA vras killed, on ttio 23rd. 01 Juno, bv the overturning of her carriage, as she journeyed from Munich to Vienna. At some distance from Wasserburg, the carriage was ascending a steep hill, when a heavily-laden wag- gon, which was coming dovin without the drag being put on, overpowered the horse which was harnessed to it, rolled down the hill, and falling against the carriage, overturned it, and the Electress was. killed 011 the instant. M. GUIZOT.—Some dissatisfaction has been caused by the attempts at Oxford to pay marked honours to M., Guizot, A newly ^appointed chair of Modern Languages was destined for him; but judicious friends advised him to "decline the honour. A degree was, but even that was waived,—and the desire to distinguish.him was forced to find a vent in-noisy plaudits.. M. G uizot is probably the greatest lec- turer in Europe; and thare may have been some travelled members of Convocation, who, regarding him as entirely divorced from politics, sincerely wished to pay homage only to the man of learning. But the obvious and paramount motive with the Oxford herd was, forsooth, to manifest discontent at the Republicanism of France, by honouring its last antagonist. Old Toryism still lingers at Oxford.. But this attempt at unqualified expression has produced a corresponding reaction many stanch" Conservatives are moved to displeasure by a step "so indecorous and foolish; hence the failure of the attempt. The feeling that promoted it, so far from being national, can scarcely be called loci.il; it is the sentiment of an expiring clique.—Spectator.
