MR. GLADSTONE AND EASTERN POLICY.— The Daily Chronicle states that Mr. Gladstone in a letter, says :—" The pain, the shame, and the mischief of the last two years in Eastern policy transcend entirely the powers of any language that I could use concerning them." MISS FORTESCUE AND GILBERT'S NEW PLAY.— W. S. Gilbert's new play,' The Fortune Hunter,' was produced with signal success at the Theatre Royal, Birmingham, on Monday night, by Miss Fortescue. The dramatic scenes and the comedy element representing Gilbert at his best, were received with great enthusiasm. Miss Fortescue, in the part of the heroine, gave a most powerful pourtrayal of the be- trayed wife, a betrayal the outcome of a vile advantage taken of an infamous French law. The author and the exponents of the play were called and recalled. ATTEMPTING TO SET A CHURCH ON Finic.- Early on Sunday morning the parish church of St. Mary, Long Crendor),IBucks, was broken into, and an attempt made to set the building on fire. The vestry waso entered and three boxes ransacked, the contents being strewn about. Fortunately, the communion plate was not kept at the church, and the desecrators in their chagrin threw ink over a number of surplices. The burglars afterwards bent the cross upon the communion table in the chancel, and also tore leaves from the Prayer Book of the Communion Service presented by Lady Addington. Finding a gallon can of paraffin in the storeroom, the burglars poured the oil over the chairs in the church, and set fire to them. Several seats and hassocks were thus destroyed, while the wooden flooring was also burnt, and the pulpit damaged. Happily the verger saw the smoke issuing from the roof, and with assistance extinguished the flames. The police are endeavouring; to trace the perpetrators. vcaiiii. «
