Rabies has broken out among the West Carbery Hunt foxhounds. At a meeting of the members of the Hunt, held at Skibbereen, it was decided to destroy 37 of the pack. NEW BISHOP OF WAIKEPTZLD APPOINT- MENT OF DR. EDEN.—The Queen has been pleased to approve of the appointment of the Right Rev. Dr. Eden, Bishop Suffragan of Dover, to the Bishopric of Wakefield. Dr. George Rodney Eden, who is thus placed in charge of the see vacated by the death of Dr. Walsham How, is a Cam- bridge man. Since 1890 he has been Canon and Archdeacon of Canterbury, and was in the same year appointed Bishop of Dover (suffragan to Canterbury). In 1878-9 Dr. Eden was appointed assistant-master of Aysgarth School, Yorkshire. From 1879 to 1883 he acted as domestic chaplain to the Bishop of Durham, and in the latter year became Vicar of Auckland St. Andrew, Durham, and rural dean of Auckland in 1887. Dr. Eden was selected as Cambridge preacher in 1886. IRELAND s SOCIAL FIGURES: HIGHEST MAR- RIAGE RATE FOR YEARS. The marriages registered in Ireland during 1896 numbered 23,055, and according to the Registrar-General's report these shew the highest rate since 1871. The birth rate was the highest since 1884. The death rate was the lowest since 1871. The excess of births over deaths was 31,941, but the loss by emigration was greater, viz 38,995, so that notwithstanding the cheerful vital facts above stated, there would appear to have been a decrease of 7,054 in the population during the year. The bulk of the emigrants were aged between 15 and 35, the best muscle of the country. The percentage of persons married in Ireland who were under age is very far below the corresponding rates in England and Scot- land. Only 2.6 per cent. of the children born were illegitimate. Ulster had the highest ille- gitimate birth rate, 3.7, and Connaught was as low as 0.6. Looking at this question from the point of view of counties, Antrim has the highest rate, 31.2 per 1,000.
