The Bishop of Calcutta (Dr. R. L. Johnson), formerly minor canon of Chester Cathedral, preached in the Cathedral on Sunday morning before a large congregation. The offertory was in aid of the Calcutta Fund. FOUNDATION-STONE LAYING OF THE WIRRAL WORKHOUSE CHAPEL.—On Wednesday afternoon at Clatterbridge, the foundation stones were laid of a new workhouse chapel. The chairman and Mrs. Hodgson, who performed the ceremony, were each presented on behalf of the architect, Mr. C. O. Francis, with a silver trowel, in com- memoration of the occasion. In the course of a few remarks, Mr. H. A. Latham alluded to the work of the lady members of the board, and said since they had stepped into the arena they had introduced many improvements which had been of great advantage to the women and children in the workhouse. WIRRAL BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The fort- nightly meeting of this board was held on Wednesday, at Clatterbridge workhouse, Mr. W. Knowles presiding over a small attendance.—Col. Lloyd moved that the chair- man, vice-chairman, and Mr. Latham, attend the Poor-law Conference at Blackpool, on the 24th and 25th inst, and it was agreed to.—The Clerk, who had written to the chief constable of the county in reference to the trial of prisoners under the various poor-law acts, asking that they should be tried at the County Police Court, Birkenhead, received a reply from Col. Hamersley that the justices in 1895 had passed a resolution, which bad the effect of causing prisoners to be tried at the court in the locality in which the offence was committed. DISCOVERY AT FURNESS ABBEY.—In the course of the excavations which are being carried out at Furness Abbey, a bulla, or leaden seal, has been discovered, which dates from the thirteenth century. The seal has been attached to one of the five Bulls sent to this Cisterian establish- ment in the time of Pope Innocent IV., and while William de Middleton was abbot of Furness. The first of these Bulls dealt with the cultivation of vines and the fisheries of Lancastria. The bulla, which was found at the south-western corner of the ruins, is about the size of a crown piece, but rather thicker and almost round. It is in excellent preservation. One side bears representations of the heads of St. Paul and St. Peter, with a crozier down the centre, and over the heads the letters' SPA.SPE.' On the reverse side is the inscription, Innocentivs PP.: III.'
