F LONDON, Sunday Night. It is strange how one great subject elbows ALL THE rest out of public attention. The death of the Jtmpsror William has diverted the interest which WAS taken in the illness of the Crown Prince, has overshadowed the silver wedding, has COMPLETELY ABOLISHED for the tilre the Bulgarian question, AND has evell TOKEN the wind out of the sails of Sullivan and Mitchell. It is somewhat strange that, although the German colony in London numbers more than the population of many large German towns, no distinctively Geruisn manifestation of sorrow has been made. The late Emperor's couutrymen, however, cannot complain that the English have not rendered due honour to the deceased or the people over whom he ruled. The funeral service for the Kaiser will be held in the queer-looking chapel near Marl- borough House, which probably not one person in A thousand who have seen it has ever associated with a place of worship. This is what may be • ^RMSD the official German Church, AND the Q-ieeu w ill probably be represented there by the Duke of Cambridge. There was a kitid of private view of the silver wedding presents at Marlborough House to-day. The gifts, as you will see BY the published list, are many and valuable. Bnt, to my mind, the most interesting feature about them IS that they are all spontaneous offerings, AND that there has beeu no canvassing, advertising, and sending round of the hat as on the occasion of a previous Royal celebration. As I announced last Sunday, the tiny was celebrated in a strictly private manner with the exception of tho service at the Chapel Royal this afternoon. If it had not been for the death of the Emperor, there would have been considerably more illuminations in the West-end last, night. One institution which I saw illuminated bad peculiar interest. That WAS the Royal British Hospital for Incurable*, which was the first institution to which the Princess OF Wales extended her patronage after her arrival in this country. I understand that, in accordance with the pre- cedent set by the Army and Navy departments, Mr jaeiCS011 will issue a preliminary memorandum explanatory of the Civil Service estimates. It is expected to be circulated in a day or two, and this \vill be the first; time on which these estimates will be thus treated. If the memorandum be sufficiently explicit, it will be of great assistance, AS the Civil Service estimates are far too compl- cated to be digested by the ordinary member in the limited time whnh is allowed between their issue and their discussion. The housewives in some parts of London are IN "state of incipient rebellion. The price of sugar has been slightly raised, and it has been explained to them that this is in consequence of the probable abolition of the sugar bounties, to bo brought about by the action of the sugar bounties conference and the diplomacy ot Baron Henry D9 Worms. Whether this be the reason for the increase or not, it would be a strange result if the efforts of a. Conservative Government were to result in a teas of Conservative votes. The working man and his wife can understand the agitation for the protnotion of home industrie! but they are disinclined to pay more fcr one of the neces- sities of life when they can get it cheaper at the expense of the foreigners. Progress is being made with the arrangements for the Italian Exhibition, which is to occupy the site of latt year's American exhibition at Earl's Court. In imitation ofthe slang terms by which the previous exhibitions have been known, it is suggested that the forthcoming show should be known ass tile" Maccaronis," or the Hurdy- sturdies." The latter would commend itself to the Londoner, ♦ to whom the itinerant Italian, with his orpan, are a positive and perennial nuisance. If the country is not tired of the great advertising shows known as exhibitions it is pro- bable they will be before long. In addition to that just mentioned, the Lord Mayor and the British Committee are industriously working tip the Brussels Exhibition. Then there is the Glasgow ExntbltiSB tbio yn&r, at vhich the Great Ewtern, sow on the Clyde, will probably again be turned into a show the Paris Exhibttton next year, and likewise one which is to eclipse all previous provincial efforts at Bristol. The postponement of the drawing-room did not, as Blight have been expected, entail any difficulty jit the Lord Chamberlain's department. In antici- pation of such a contingency arising. first in con- nectiou with tbe(illneas of the Crown Prince, and then of the late Emperor, notices putting off the ceremonial bad been prepared and addressed I and there was nothing to do except to post them when the countermanding order came from the Queen. As a matter of fact. acting on the false intelligence which had been received, the order was given before the Emperor was dead. In the same way what is known as the Ie oftlcial" Marlborough House circular on Thursday night contained an intimation that, in consequence of the death of the Emperor, the eveninsr party announced for the 12th inst. would not take place. It was not until the papers were just going to press that a message was hurriedly sent around to alter the word death to dangerous illness. At the meeting of the deputation of tobacco growers to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, one member handed round some specimens of manufactured home-grown tobacco done up in packets, cigarettes, and cigars. One gentleman who sampled the cigarette* tells me that, having tried one, he gave away the remainder. This, of course, might be a matter of taste or of prejudice. The general opinion segms to be that the leaf can be grown all right, but that we do not understand the art of curing it; and after Mr Goschen'a speech there is not much probability that the experiments will be persevered with to any extent. If the attempt is to succeed, the best plan would be to import from the tobacco- producing countries some workmen who are skilled in the preparation of the weed. rf Sir Horace Davey has at last been selected as Liberal candidate for the Gower Division of Glamorganshire. Sir Horace has been nearly as unfortunate in finding a local habitation as a former Solicitor-General, Sir Hardinge Giffard, the present Lord Chancellor, who was glad to find refuge eventually in a little pocket borough in Cornwall, which was afterwards found convenient by the present Attorney-General. In fact, the law officers of the Crown are particularly unfortunate in obtaining election. Sir Edward Clarke's first experiences in Southwark were not satisfac- tory, and it was only the accident of defending Sir Edward Bates, who was unseated on petition at Plymouth in 1880, which secured the Solicitor- General the seat which he now hoids. Plymouth had previously returned two Solicitors-General, Sir Roundell Palmer and Sir Robert Collier, so that the traditions of the borough, while good to Sir Edward Clarke as Solicitor-General, are not favourable to him as a Conservative.
MARY DAVIES'S MARRIAGE. The London correspondent of the Liverpool Mercury telegraphsMiss Mary Davie. the sweet singer of Wales, is to be married, on March 22, in the well-known Congressional Church at Tolmer-square, to Professor Cadwaladr Davies. A sort of festival of Welshmen in London will be kept in honour of the occasion.

THEGREATFRIZE' FIGHT. SULLIVAN V.MITCHELL, FOR xi,ooo. THIRTY-NINE ROUNDS END IN A DRAW. A MONOTONOUS CONTEST. ARREST OF THE PRINCIPALS AND FRIENDS. The fight for a stake of £ 500 a-sido between John L. Sullivan, of Boston, U.S A., and Ciiarles Mitchell, of England, wh:ch had been looked forward to for some time p:'Rt, took place on Saturday at Baron Rothschild's estate at Apre- mout, which is sitnated two miles from Chantilly and five miles from Creil. Both men had under- gone a very complete preparation for the battle, and although it was generally expected tllnt Sullivan (whose weight was 14- stone, or some 30 pounds more than than of his opponent) would win, Mitchell's fnends were confident that their man would acquit himself in a most creditable manner, if be did not actually prove successful. The fight, which was witrlcssed by !\bout forty English and American sportsmen, proved of an altogether unexpectedly protracted character, no fewer than 39 rounds, which occupied in ail three hours and eleven minuter, being contested, at the end of which a draw was agreed on. matters being so evenly balanced that there was but little prospect of a decisive ter- mination being arrived at in anything like reasonable time. Moreover, the weather, which was bright and fine at the commeucemerit ot the battle, had undergone a most unpleasant change, and the ground had beeu rendered by the heavy rain which fell but little better than a quagmire, so that the suggestion of a draw was willingly acted on. Tni. protraction of the contest in such an unexpected manner wale entirely due to the tactics pursued by Mitchell, who made the utmost t use of his activity and skill as a boxer to evade the attack of his weighter adversary. Although it must in fairness bo stated that the Englishman, whenever he saw a favourable opportunity to act on the chviisive, embraced it with considerable success. We print below special details of the contest. AMIKNS, Friday. Up to Thursday niht, when the major part of the Sullivan and Mitchell factions arrived at Amiens, all in the know believed that arrange- ments for bringing iff tthis fight on I," Úlay had I been perfected and were standing. In the result it was discovered that, though all details had been arranged for a short trip by-rail from Amiens to Creil, and thence by water to a choice situation for a mill, all was off. "A Gallic sportsman, who had offered (1.11 manner of facilities for the fight, had gone over to the majority. The offness tvpa very awkward for Mitchell, who, by winning tie toss for choice of battle-grouud, and being bound over at Ripley to keep the peace, had gained privi- lege to pitch the twenty.four foot ring anywhere he liked except in Eugland. His agent had several other strings to his bow, but somehow could not confidently fix on one. So them we were, and there was Mitchell and also Sullivan, in a con. siderable bo)e. If the battle was to be decided without interference from powers military, civil, or mixed, it was not desirable that some forty to fifty J'-ngUsiinien and Americans should help garrison Amiens for long. We might wait in that city and, not to put too fine a point on it, be pinched, Hitting, as it were, or go and take our chance in the country and be taken flagrante delicto in or about the ropes and stakes, which, as A mere detail, I may mention were in or about Paris while we were at Amiens. We might leave the latter city and seek fresh woods convenient for manufacturing stakes, and pastures new on which; to pitch them but our prospect of doing so,was sensibly depre- ciated by our not unnoticed presence at the Calais- Paris half-way station. All day Friday the company, scattered among half-a-dcten hotels, waited in hope of receiving sailing orders from Mitchell's agent, who ,did not make a sign. Naturally the American party were dissatisfied. and said so. Also naturally, Mitchell, who would take all responsibility on himself, fretted at his personal and vicarious failure, and did himself no good thereby. All things considered, the con- centring went on wonderfully quiet when it is remembered that the sporting B.P. knew every- move beforehand. True, John, or J. L., or the big fellow—h<3 is never styled or titled Sullivan by bia clienlèle-wiçh bis training companj had muved quietly enough to Bjulogna on Wednesday week, and. stayed tlmre disguised by what may almost be called noms de guerre. At Boulogne—the last place anyone mixed up with prizefighting ought to touch while memory of the M'Niel trouble is warm in the mind of the local police-Sol li van, attended by his trainers George Macdonald and Sam tBlakelock, took his breathings, meals, sleep, and otherwise endeavoured to progress towards the goal of fit- neSS. Some of his school were on the Boulogne platform when Thursday's eleven o'clock from Charing Cross mail service arrived from Calais with most of the division, who had remained in England till then. The night mail brought the remainder. Among the first delivery for Boulogue and Amiens were, for and on account of Charles Mitchell; Mitchell himself, in the race who should be the first passenger sick, was only just beaten by a bulwark by Dick Roberts and George Probert Jake Kilrain, big, burly, hand- some, and quite talkative; Jack Baldock, second, .with Kilrain Charley Rowell, who helped to train Mitchell pony Moore, general assistant boss Messrs M. Sandys --a first-rate little sportsman, at whose place, Itipley, Mitchell did his bit of training—Wemyss, Prank Carew, and W. Riley. The consignment in Sullivan's interest included Barnett, treasurer; Dan Canary, sympathiser, if not attached Sylvester Gookin, the sculler; George Probert (second). When Sullivan moved on to Amiens by a train which arrived at about half-past eight, his party was strengthened by M'Caffery, recently beaten by Dempsey, Magnus, financier Vilillipil-wby cannot he be consistent to phonetic alliteration, and spell bis 'name with an F ?-^ George Macdonald (second), and Sam Blakelock, Jem .Carney, Holske, Nobby Clarke, Esq., and Moreton. Mr B. John Angle, of S.E. London, the well-known amateur, who had consented to be referee, came over by the first train. Johnny Gideon turned up later from Paris, having Scented the battle from afar. The press was humorously and cosmopolitanly represented, and it was said that many individuals who did not Court undue defeat were among the latest arrivals, and in waiting round or about the corner. Each "ide believed that the other had a reserve force, and talked of strictly enforcing the ten-a sida- hmit-to-spectators'' clause. Mitchell and suite Put up at the Cosmopolitan Hotel; Sullivan and satellites at the Hotel du Rhin the press, who Were very strong numerically, at theEcud'Or. throughout Friday time passed wearily, waiting instructions in procedure, which did not arrive. Mitcheil kept as quiet as he could, but took a short walk or two in the rain. Sullivan lay quietly on his bed. The press buezed about to find information where noue could be found. Tjje police kept a closely focussed official eye on the lot. The bold proprietors did not know whether to be glad of the custom, or sorry that prize-fighting parties should be at their establishment. Every man, woman, and child lppeared to know what we had come for, and the French papers duly chronicled onr aims and objects, just as if we were a new publication appealing for advertisements. Mitchell did not like the delay. Sullivan grew quite anxioug for news. There was talk of his claiming forfeit, because a limit of four days had been fixed, and t,e was entitled to three days' notice, which had not been allowed but, as J. L. said, be wanted to win, not take forfeit. He came out well under somewhat trying circumstances, and all through professed and showed willingness to agree to anything so long as he could fight. Dalay or postponement was in no way his fault. If the b.g fellow—you see I suit my language to my aubject-conhi only look on his picture when fairly fit, but by no means fine, as ho was on Friday, and on his counterfeit presentment, showing him loaded with flesh, lie would always keep in good condition, if he cared for appearances. Tile two do not go together. On Friday he stripped a pound or so over 14 stone, was beautifully bright and clean in the skin and in the oyes, and a model of a. long, loose-limbed, powerful; if rather fleshy andsiightly overlapped athlete. His friends say he -e is only twenty-eight years of ago. He has looked Rootj big forty while in England. After train- inn he would well pass as under tlurty. Mitchell seemed quite big enough—list 12ibs—and when not bothering about the venue was in good enough spirits. All manner of schemes tor fiuding a spot were propounded, and late in the after- noon it was generally understood that the affair must he put off till Monday. At last Mitchell sent to Sullivan to y that he was sorry that he had failed by his agent to mr.ke satIsfactory arrangements, but that he thought he had a plan lor Saturday which would work. Now, would Sui livan assent to fighting on Saturday at Mitchell's spot, or prefer to find a pitch for himself, at which Mitchell promised to attend ? Some of the American paity wanted to raise difficulties. John who is boss in his own camp—stated that lie did not care several thiugs where he fought, so jeng as he did fight, and the matter Was settled tliere and then. Accordingly we were to leave Amiens at 6 13 on Saturday morning for Creil, and pitch a ring at the time iu course of preparation, c as regards procuring ropes and fashioning stakes, by Dick Roberts, &c. The negotiations between the two sides were carried on in a fairly amicable spiiit, and aH settled for as much rest as possible bafore the eai'iy "tart. LBY SUBMARINE TELEGRArH.] » PARIS, Saturday Nirht. After all our doubts and expected disappoint- ment, the fight has been brought < ff, and the impromptu arrangements made really left nothing to be desired. When sending off my last despatch, »U that was known (or hopad)^ was that business "r' -"P'; as long as possible. Some eight vehicles of various denominations were engaged to convey principals, seconds, and spectators to the scene of action. Ic proved to be at Apremont, Jiaron Rothschild's e-itate. two mlleil from Chantilly, and 'five miles from Creil. Upon arrival here we found that a ring had been pitched behind the stables, which face the model private racecourse. From the other side we were excluded from view by bushes and trees. Thanks to the shelter thus afforded, operations were pursued without interference, the only strangers who turned up being a few hunts- men, who presented themselves towards the finish, and who looked on with some curiosity at the proceedings. The principal* arrived on the ground about. 11. Ail told there were 41 present. Sullivan's seconds were Ashtoa and av)(i Baniitt for umpire. Mitchell's umpire was Charles Rowel], and his seconds were Jack Baldock and Kilrain. A well-known amateur was selected t<> hold the watch. When all had arrived and everything was found to be in readiness, the referee, -,Nit B. J. Angle, spolce a few words to the men, and briefly explained the rules of the Loudon prize ring Meanwhile they had tossed for corners. Mitchell won, and of course chose so that tho sun was in Sullivan's fac-\ The sun being at the time well our, this was not bad for Mitchell. Mr Phillips (Sullivan's backer) now advanced with a sheaf of !lot" "nd offered to lay 500 to 200 Oil Sullivan. A 12.50 Sullivan threw his caubeen into the ring, where it was speedily joined by Mitchell's head covering. Both men wore warm woollen drawers. Mitchell also wore a large figlititig-p'ittister (if the old pattern, but Sullivan declined to put one on. Sullivan sported orna- mented green socks. At, 12.55 precisely the principals and seconds shook hands in the ortho- dox old-time fashion, and the tight commenced, Round 1.—When the men stood up Mitchell's physique was generally admired. He compared favourably with Sullivan, despite "the big fel,low's superior height and bulk, aud there did not seem after all so much disparity as had been anticipated. For some time they sparred cautiously for an opening. At length Sullivan tried the left arid missed, Mitchell ducking. For nearly two minutes they sparred with hut little result, both being particularly wary. Slight left- handed exchanges, and more caution. Mitchell trying lett, Sullivan stopped him neatly, and, after a few hrhk exchanges, the round ended by Mitchell going down. Round 2.—Mitchell commenced operations by hitting our viciously at Sullivan's eye. He hit short. Sullivan did not, but landed on the cheek with his left. Mitchell staggered from the counter, but tried the left again—this timo with counter, but tried the )eit again—this timo with more success. They closed, aud broke away again almost immediately. After a couple of counters Sullivan smartly landed with his right on Mit- chell's left temple, and Mitchell went down. Round 3.—Mitchell led off with the left at the mark, and after a few exchanges they closed, Mitchell putting in a few half-arm blows. By mutual consent they separated, both laughing. The ground being clayey somewhat hampered their movements. When they resumed sparring Mitchell got in his left and closed, Sullivan getting the best of the fibbing. On breaking away Sulli- van requested Mitchell not to run round the ring, and then straightway again landed with his right on Mitchell's t^mnle. Mitchell knocked down. Round 4.—During brisk exchanges Mitchell held his own fairly. The round ended by his slipping down. Round 5.-Stilliv-,in forced the fighting. After some sharp business, Mitchell went down from Sullivan's right. Round 6.—Mitchell opened with three shots on the body in quick succession, but had the worst of the exchanges which followed, and finally went down frcm a right-handed punch on the cheek. Up to now nothing to choose. Both men were cheered vigorously. Round 7.—Mitchell led off with the left at the belly. Iu the raliy which ensued, Sullivan went down with Mitchell on top of him. Sullivan, however, got UP. and walked to his corner. Round 8.—First blood claimed for Mitchell, who, liaving avoided a tremendous right-handed blow from Sullivan, got home on his enemy's eye, and then cot down to avoid. Rounds 9 to 15.—During these rounds a fearful storm came on, and nearly all but :the principals and .seconds took sheltar in the shed close by. In one of these rounds, which lasted twenty-five minutes, Mitchell received several nasty blows, especially on the temple but Sullivan was evi- dently tiring and shivering visibly, his teeth chattering from the downpour which he had endured. By and-by, however, the sun came out again quite warm, and with its appearance Sulli- van seemed to recover. At times he made tremendous rushes, but Mitchell's agility stood him in gocd stead, and be milled on the retreat most ot the time. Round 1,6.-Stillivan went in to finish Mitchell, who cleverly slipped him. Slight exchanges. Sullivan got on the righr, and Mitchell went down. Round 17.Mitcbell shaky. No sooner up than down. Round 18 —Ground awfully slippery after the shower. Slight exchanges, but Mitchell quickly down. Round lg.Mitchell queer butgame, and active in a rally. Sullivan nearly downed him with a right-handed blow on the temple. Both busy with the left about each other's bodies. Sullivan made a desperate rush, and Mitchell got down to avoid. Round 20.—Some brisk exchanges ended in --Mitchell's going down. Round 21.—Mitchell nearly landed the big fallow with his right, but John got home twice oil the ribs. In the rally which ensued Mitchell went down. Round 22L—-Heav^f rain. Mitolwil choeky. Sullivan got home on the chest with the left, and on the neck with the right. Mitchell cleverly slipped Sullivan's next Attempt in the same direc- tion, but finally received on the eye, and went down. Round 23.-Ground dreadfully slippery. Mitcliall improving. Sullivan, breathing bard. fought Mitchell down. Round 24.-This was a long round. Mitchell got home twice on the mouth, but finally, re- ceiving heavily on the ueck from Sullivan's right, went down. Round 25.-Mitchell had the best of the fight- ing, scoring on the body. Sullivan, trying a fine right for the ear, Mitchell got down to avoid. Round 26.-Mitchell home twice on the left eye and ear. Sullivan home on the mark. Mitchell down to avoid. Round 27. Heavy fighting for a while. Mitchell finally down to avoid. Round 28.-Sollivan cleverly forced Mitchell to prolong a tierce rally. Mitchell slightly landed r right on ear, but waR sent down. Rounds 29 to 39.-During these rounds Mitchell gained some advantage. Stillivau frequently shivered. Both men fought very-fairly, and, although Mitchell once twisted Sullivan on to the ropes and sought to cross-buttock him, neither would wrestle to end the rounds. The 39th round was exceptionally tedious. It lasted 38 minutes. The men walked to different sides of the ring, and occasionally sat in comers. Sullivan tired. His right went in the first hour. Mitchell seemed little hurt, and later showed great generalship, and scored best, but appeared to fear Sullivan's right. Three hours and twelve minutes had been spent in the ring, when Baldock proposed a draw. Hereupon Sullivan and Mitchell shook hands. Sullivan's body, right eye, and mouth are more punished than Mitchell's, whose right eye and temple have received must damage. Sullivan and Kilrain shook hands. REMARKS. The first half of the fight was good. In the second half the hitting was fierce, but the waits were absurd, though suiting Mitchell. The rain rendered the battle-ground a mere marsh, aod'the rain did not suit Sullivan. Sullivan as a terror has completely exploded. Mitchell took a lot of punish- ment early iu tbo fight. The spectators were orderly. ANOTHER ACCOUNT. ?' [BY SCBMARINK TKLLEGRAPH,] PARIS, Saturday Night. Last night all went smoothly, and to-day Mt Gideon found a pitch at Aprement, on Baron Rothschild's training ground. Here a capital ring was pitched on clay, well rolled, and bidden from observation by a big shed. The journey from Amiens to Creil was commenced at six o'clock, and we arrived at Creil at eight. Mitchell appeared coesrful) but Suilivan was serious and determined. There was some trouble in getting carriages at Creil, and several spectator,4 walked, and arrived at eleven. The principals drove ready to fight all in one party. Ashton and Macdonald seconded Sullivan, BarnettumpiredforSullivan; Baldock and lvil-rain seconded Mitchell, Rowell umpired for Mitchell. Mr Angle was referee, and a well-known amateur was timekeeper. Both men had on woollen trunks. Sullivan would not wear a plaieter. Sullivan looked as though he would have been better for a stonp. off, and Mitchell was not drawn any too. fiue. After shaking hands, at 12.46 they shaped. Round I.-Sullivan stood over Mitchell, looked too big for him, and very spiteful; Mitchell laughing. He had won toss for corner, and put Sullivan's face to wipd and auu, and later to rain. 5 to 1 on Sullivan was offered at starting. After half a minute's sparring Sullivan led off; Mitchell dodged, and put in the left on tho chin, then ducked. Mitchell tried to draw with the left, and too artful. Sullivan home with left on cheek and right on top of head. Mitchell home with left on belly. Sullivan several f.imos beautifully stopped I Mitcholl's left at belly. Finally Sullivan cornered Mitchell, who got down to avoid. Round 2.—Mitchell led off on Sutlivan's eye, and missed return; but Sultivan presently landed loft on cheek, and closed. They separated without attempt to wrestle, sparred awhile, and closed again. Suilivan now rushed, and hit Mitchell ou the head with right, and gained first knock-down. Rouud 3,[jtcheH hit out with the left at Sullivau's belly, und closed. They broke away, and Mitchell kot home With left on mouth, but received from the right on mark. Sullivan rushed, and, hUlding with left on temple and right ou jaw, sent Mitchell t:OWII. Round 4.—Mitchell cnme up with a. lump on the left temple. He led with left on bally long sparring. Mitchell frequently led ],)Vr. and was well stopped. Sullivan tried right, and rushed. Tht-y clinched, but mntualiy drew away without wrestling. Sullivan looked able to do what lie liked while holding Mitchell. Mitchell got home twice on the chest. Sullivan, waiting, rushed again. Mitchell cleverly slipped him, and the round ended with Sullivan getting home his right on Mitch«ll's left eya in a fast rally, which sent Mitchell down. Round 5.-Both "hArp to time Sullivan directly forced fighting. Fait rally in middle ot rinf. Mit,clialielitictieci and then separated. After a short rouud, Mitchell went down from right. Round 6,—Sullivan was leading thus far. Mitchell opened with three left-handed shots 011 the body. Iu the following exchange he had the worst of it, but stopped heavy right at belly, though finally downed on cheek. Round 7.—Mitchell led with the left at belly. Sullivan fell in the rally, Mitchell on him. t Sullivan in all rounds walked 1;0 his ccrner, Mitchell was generally carried. Ruuud S.—First, blood to Mitchell. Mitchell v got home several times on belly, and avoided Sullivan's tremendous right. After heavy ex- changes Mitchell landed hob on right eye, aud got down to avoid. Kound 9.—Sullivan got home with the right on Mitcheli's neck. After a rally Mitchell's left met Sullivan's mouth, and then got home again on the ear. Sullivan lauded twice with the left on ear and temple. Mitchell went down from right on arn'. Round 10.—Another smart round. Mitchell with L liinii) on left temple, Sullivan's right eye bad. Sullivan, vicious, ruslied at Mitchell, who got down. Round 11.—Mitchell home twice with left on body. He was worked to corner, and got down to avoid. Ground slippery. Round 12.—Both fresh. Sullivan boding a vicious rush, Mitchell fell without a blow. Claim not allowed. Sullivan savage. Mitchell re- peatedly slippad him, and finally went down to avoid. R')1.mri 13,-Suili van forcing. Mitchell home with left 011 body. Sullivan, waiting to use right, finally sent Mitchell down with right on neck. Round 14.-Sultivan always serious, Mitchell laughing. Wild, harmless rush. Exchanges. Mitchell received on mouth, bleeding. Sullivan on temple then sent Mitchell down with right on ear. Suilivan seemed winning. Round 15.—Mitcheli did tnobfc work, but went down to avoid. Rounds 16 io39.—The utmost fairness wasshown on both sides. It was at times mo-t amusing to see them, on closing and fibbing by consent separating in most poiite manner, Mitchell playfully tapping Sullivau. Much talking was done, usually followed with "mack smack and a rni;h- Mitchell away laughing. Sullivan did not relish some of Mitchell's hits, but was gracious enough to acknowledge them: "That's a good one, Charley," and so on. Sullivan's right eye getting in mourning and lips swelling, while Mitchell's temple had a big red lump. No blood from latter. Sullivan's nose and lips trickled carmine. He would not have his moustache removed. When two hours and a half had elapsed, in the 37lh round, a reference to Smith and Kilrain caused tittering, but John, looking serious, would not repiy. The ground was now in a ter- tibia state, Mitchell was frequently down on his hands, but up quickly, aud now seemed fresher and more confident than ever. There was, however, always a, dangerous blow in John, but he did not push the fighting, Charley being more inclined to plant on till Sullivan lilt vicious, and went for him. Charles was always on the alert and away. No use John racing after him, he was too agile. The thirty-ninth and last ,s round was of thirty-live minutes duration. Frequently Mitchell, for change, would take a waik round the ring, Sullivan standing still. Some four times they mutually retired to corners to get cluy (df boots and refresh, till one would challenge the other. A draw had been suggested, but declined, till between four and five1 o'clock all got impatient, a the finish seemed at least two hours off, however favourable to Mitchell. The latter at last said, Well, let's shake baud*, or fight on, as John likes." Hereupon Baldock, who bad been very troublesome, rushed in and joined their hands, Sullivan nothing loth, and both were tired. Great ovation for both. Ail desirous of shaking their hands, Although John's side looked glum, they soon relaxed after the draw. John never was so done up. It is inex. plicable to them. Mitchell was like a cricket. John's right was gone. Mitchell has now shown himself a most clever tighter as well as boxer. Excessive quietness at the ring side, utmost good order, and, generally speaking, good huuiour all round. This was undoubtedly a model mill in various ways. ARREST OF THE "PRINCIPALS AND 22 FRIENDS. Later we learn that the principals and 13 others are reported to hava been arrested after the fig at. fi-W "iVf LONDON, Sunday Night. News was received in Loudon to-night of the arrest of the leading actors in the prize fight. It appears that yesterday afternoon, after the fight was over, the company were on their way to the village in carriages driven by Frenchmen, when they were stopped by the gendarmes. They all submitted quietly to arrest, although many present were armed with revolvers. Twenty- four were arrested, including Sullivau, Mitchell, Kilrain, Rowell, Pony Moore, Bar- rett, Phillips, Blakelock, MacDonald, Jeuks, Batdcock, "Oanary" Connor, Evans, Raymond, Perry, Morton, G. 1. Dauning, J. P. Wheeldon, Sylvie, Gookin, and Probert. The gendarmes I did not arrive until after the fight, aud cotms- quently saw nothing of it, although some reapers and other Frenchmen witnessed the contest. Amongst others who were present, but who escaped, were the Hon. Michael Sandys, Mr Carew, Mr Riley, Mr Angle, Mr Gallaher, and Ashton, Carney, Dick Roberts, and It Nobby" Clarke.
THE FRACAS IN HIGH LIFE. SENTENCE ON MAJOR BPRROWES. A TERRIFIC FINE. The hearing of the charge against Major Kildare Bmrowes of assaulting Lord Howard de WaJdou wrs r«*su»mrti«.fc tho Middlesex Sohk'.ous on Saturday. The judge refusnd to allow Mr Lockwood to-call evidence in justification of the assault, or to allrfw Major Burrowes to make a statement before his couusel. Mr Lockwood then addressed the jury, asking them to decide whether Major Burrowes was not justified in raising his hands to protect a dying woman, and who would have died had he not done it. The Duke of Portland was then called, and was about to give evidence on events previous to the night of the assault, when the Judge, Oil the intervention of the Solicitor-General, ruled that the evidence could not be received. This ruling applied to the other witnesses' evidence. Dr Banning deposed to attending Lady Howard de Walden and telling the prosecutor that ab- solute quiet was essential. The latter, however, insisted on sleeping in the dining-room. He was under the influence of alcohol to a marked degree. The jury, after a brief consultation, found the defendant guilty of assault and causing actual bodily harm. The judge ordered Major Burrowes to pay a fine of £ 400 to the Crown to pay the expenses of the pro«pcution; to enter into his own recognisances in -0500 and to find two suretMWof L250 each, to keep the peace for twelve months.
THE COLLISION IN THE CHANNEL. 28 LIVES LOST. TERRIBLE SCENE ON BOARD. The Dover correspondent of the Central News telegraphs that, according to the statements of the two survivors from the City of Corinth who were brought to Dover, 28 lives were lost when the vessel went down. The oilief mate states that he has no recollection of how bo was saved. He was in his buuk at the time of the collision. A breach was made in the starboard side of the City of Corinth, and the vessel went down in two minutes. He heard shouting on deck and ran up with no clothing but his shirt. He himself sank with the vessel, but rose to the surface and swam to the Tasmania, climbing on deck by her chains. The rest of the crew went down in their bunks, with the exception of two or three who were killed on deck by falling spars. The Tasmania herself was ouly kept up by her water-tight compartments.
--+- TERRIBLE TRAGEDY IN A PRISON CELL. MURDER BY A MADMAN. A prisoner named Sissons, now confined in Armley Gaol, Leeds, murdered a fellow prisoner named Taylor within the prison on Saturday. Both men had been incarcerated for felony, and Sissons, who is insane, was to have beon removed in a few days to a lunatic asylum. On Friday night he was confined in a cell with the deceased and another prisoner, and, awaking early in the morning, beat Taylor on the head with a stool, causing his death. Sissons was secured after a struggle.

Forester, a'farmer, of WhixalJ, Salop, was brought up for sentence, having been found guilty on Friday of the manslaughter of his brother-in-law, NVilliair, Powell, another farmer, by shooting him. The defeuce was that the prisoner and the deceased had a struggle for the possession of a loaded gun, which went off accidentally, killing Powell. Mr Justice A. L. Smith sentenced the prisoner to 15 years' penal ervitude.
CARDIFF GUARDIANS. PROPOSED APPOINTMENT OF RESI- DENT MEDICAL OFFICER. At a meeting on Saturday of the Cardiff Board of Guardians, held at the workhouse under the presidency of Dr Paine, Dr Lewis, referring to the proposed appointment of a resident medical officer, requested that the clerk should prepare a return showing the period spent by the medical officers at tho workhouse and at the Ely schools. He remarked that it was, in his opinion, desirable the guardians should have an opportunity of stndyiug euch a return before being caiied upon to come to any final decision.—The Chairman said tho information Dr Lewis asked for would be presented to the board at the next meeting.—TheClerk(Mr Harris) reported that Mr Frederick Ward, butcher, 49, James-street, Docks, had been elected a guardian for the parish of St. Mary. The votes recorded for him were 1,107 against 430 for Mr William Bradley, auctioneer and farmer, Whitchurch. The other three gentlemen nominated refused to serve.

MEETING OF THE LIBERAL ASSOCIATION. SPEECHES BY MR BURNIE, SIR HORACE DAVEY, AND MR WILLS. SELECTION OF A CANDIDATE SIH. HORACE DAVEY ACCEPTED. A LABOUR CANDIDATE IN THE FIELD. At the Albert-hall on Saturday afternoon, a. meeting of the council of the Gower Liberal Association was held, for the purpose of deciding which of three candidates before the committee should seek the suffrages of the electors in the Liberal interest. The candidates were Mr R. D. Burnie. Sir Horace Davey, and Mr W. H. Wills, ex-M.P. There was a large attendance of delegates. Mr Morgan B. Williams presided, and he was supported by the three candidates, by Mr Dillwyn, M.P., Mr T. Phillips, seur., and Mr E. S. Hartland (the secretary.) The CHAIRMAN said that after each candidate had spoken it would be open for any gentleman to put any question to him that he wished. At the close of the meeting it would be determined by vote which of those gentlemen was to be chosen by them to be their candidate at the approaching election. He would first call upon their local candidate (Mr Buruie) to address them. (Ap- plause.) Mr ROBERT BURNIE, who was very well re- ceived, said he regretted that that meeting bad been rendered necessary by so great a loss as the death of Mr Yeo. They knew that he (the speaker) had taken some part in politics iu that locality for many years, and, therefore, he did not think it necessary for him to go so fully into the details of his political views as might other- wise have been desirable. He endeavoured to ground his political principles upon the true basis of demobracy-the government of the people by the people. (Cheers.) The people had over I and over expressed themselves in favour of I enfranchisement and education, Enfranchise- ment has so far advanced that they had only to adopt the principle of "one man, one vote." Education was so fur advanced that it bad been made compulsory all over the country, and if it were right to cumpel people to educate their children, it was right and logical that educa- tion should be free. With reference to the Irish question, lie had been in full sympathy with the policy of Mr Gladstone to legislate for Ireland according to the properly expressed views of the Irish people. (Applause.) He never believed it; was good policy to compel a people full of intelli- gence and sentiment to bow the neck to superior power. He was in favour of granting to Ireland a generous measure of Home Rule. He detested aud despised a policy of coercion. (Hear, hear.) Another important question which must come to the front in the future was the land question, in which was included to some extent that of dissstab- lishment and disendowment and the tithe question. He was in favour of as perfect religious equality as it was possible to acquire, and, having made that statement in all sincerity and in all earnestness, they were not to be surprised when he said that if it became his duty to go to Parlia- ment he would work with all Ins energy, all his z,ial, and all the determination that he couid throw into the task to bring about; the disestablishment and the disendowment ot the Church. With reference to tithes, if tithes were paid at all, they should go into the national purse. If we are ia favour of religious equality we cannot be in favour of any system of tithes, or anything else which could bolster up religious inequality. He proceeded to say that it was to a fair and radical solution of the land question that they must lock for the elevation of the workers. (Cheers.) Surely it was time that those who did the work of the nation should attain a greater dignity. ("Hear, hear," and cheers.) Perhaps his (Mr Btirnie's) opinions might be more Radical than those of many, but he maintained that wealth came from the land by the aid of labour. If that was no, was it right that the system of this country, our land system, and our other political institutions should tend towards the accumulation of wealth and not towards the distribution of it f His main idea was that legislation should teud towards making the land belong to the people, but of course that was not t:) be done without cost, and without serious responsibility. Dealing with Royalties, he said it was preposterous that the minerals in the bowels of the earth, placed there,' as he main- tained, for the use of all mankind, should be claimed as the exclusive patrimony of a few individuals. He quite agreed with Mr Bradiaugh in requiring the compulsory cultivation of the waste lands. The land was not cultivated to the extent it ought to be. The consequence was that there was not sufficient labour employed in raising food out of the earth. Surely the labouring rural population would be better employed in making the soil yield its riches than in crowding into the large towns and preventing the urban workman from getting a decent living. With reference to thoquestion of peace or war, he would dismiss that 'by saying that, although he was not a peace at-any-pricc man, he would pay a long price to save the country from war. As constituted to-day, the House of Lords was nothing more or less than an obstruction in the way of political progress. With reference to Royal grants, Royalty had had too much already— (applause)—and he saw nothing in the future that would induce him to vote for further grants, especially in view of the destitution and the struggle for existence which we saw around us. He would now touch on a personal matter. His services were at their disposal, but he would tell them candidly at once he was not a wealthy man, and therefore could hold out no personal induce- ments to them, It was unnecessary for him to say more than that, if elected, his energies and the work of his life would be theirs. (Load applause.) Sir HORACE DAVEY, who was received with cheers, said lie quite felt the responsibility which anybody incurred who presented himself to that constituency to succeed its late lamented member. Few people could hope to equal his rare know- ledge of public affairs, his assiduity and devotion to the interests, not only of his constituency, but to those of the country at large, and his business- like habits, which enabled him to grasp anything with effect. But the great King Death bad removed him from amongst them, and the constituency had now to perform the duty of selecting a candidate to succeed him. He (Sir Horace) presented himself before the constituency iu that character. His political opinions might be summed up in one expression, and that was that he was highly favourable to the voluntary principle both in politics and in religion. He believed in the great truth that men know best what was best for themselves, that they were the best judges of what was best for themselves, and that they could manage their own affairs better than people could manage them for them they might not manage them with that scientitic accuracy and complete- ness to satisfy the philosopher but they were practical politicians; and in politics one of the most essential elements of peace and order was that the people should be content and satisfied with their position. He had the honour of hold- ing office under Mr Gladstone's Home Rule Administration. While he was in Parliament from 1880 to 1885 the conviction slowly forced itself ou his mind, and on the minds of many other members, that the legislative union had proved a failure, and that the present system of governing Ireland must be altered and re- formed, and that the way in which that must be done was by meeting-, as far as possible, the wishes, aspirations, and hopes of the Irish people themselves. (Cheers.) Tiierb were only two policies before them—either the acceptance of the wish of the Irish people, constitutionally expressed through their legally. elected representatives, and giving tllPm the power of managing their own affairs in Dublin or the suspension of Irish parliamentary repre- sentation altogether, and making up our minds to govern despotically by the sword. The latter alternative was one he was convinced a free people would never submit to. (Cheers.) The legislative union with Ireland had brought no real union. The union more nearly represented that of the Siamese twins, who were joined together by a tie not acceptable to either, and which left to neither freedom of motion or thought. In his opinion this was not the proper time to be drawn into a discussion of the details of the measure. When they agreed on the prin- ciple there was time enough to discuss the details, and they should not allow their opponents to draw them into a discussion of details till they accepted the principle. Nor should he say much on the Coercion Act, which had, in his opinion, placed the liberties of the Irish people under the heel of Dublin Castle. It was mere sophistry, in his opinion, to say that the Irish enjoy equal laws with the English. They nevertenjoyed equal laws or the benefits of the English constitution since the act of union was passed. (Cheers.) Continuing, the speaker said they might very naturally ask what he, coming frem England to address them, thought about the Welsh national movement. Well, when he was in the House of Commons he was surprised to find that there did not appear to be that united action amongst the Welsh members directed to common ends which he saw amongst the Scotch and Irish. He promised, if they returned him, it would be not only his duty, but his study to secure con- certed action amongst the Welsh members, and to endeavour to co operate, so far as be could, in encouraging and foster- ing unity amongst Welsh members, so that there, might be formulated a Welsh programme affecting Welsh questions which should bo pressed on the attention of Parliament. (Cheers.) He did not know whether that would be considered an aggressive policy. (Laughter and cheers.) This had, to a certain extent, been met by the formation of a Welsh National Council, under the presidency of Mr Stuart Rendel, and the vice-presidency of Mr Dillwyn. He bad looked at the programme of the council, and not only did be see uothii)g to object to in it, but every article of tbe programme had, and would have, his hearty support. (Cheers.) Had he been in the House it wuuld have given him great pleasure to have voted, and possibly to have spoken, in favour of Mr Rathbone's motion for the appointment of a special committee for dealing with Welsh affairs. Foremost in importance and uigsncy amongst the questions affecting Wales was, in his opinion, Welsh disestablishment. (Cheers.) He was opposed to the principle of ecclesiastical privilege and monopoly in every form. He believed, and he held, that the endowments of the Established Church were the national property of this country. Parliament had the undoubted right, and had even asserted it to deal with any such master for the benefit of the country. Therefore, on principle he should vote for the disestablishment and disen- dowment of the Church in Wales. Then be was bonnd to say that this question had beccma one of some urgency, and, if it were delayed, they might possibly soon see scenes of riot and disorder in Wales which they now saw in the neighbouring isie. The question of disestablishment and dis- endowment ought to be proceeded with at once and in his opinion, with the abolition of endow- ments, should be included that of tithes, which were nati o»al property. (Cheers.) If asked in what way they should be disposed of, be should suggest that they be applied for the education ef the people--eitb-,r elementary or intermadiate. The question of disestab- lishmajit and disendowment of the Church in his opinion was not only a matter of justice and fair- ness to the Welsh, because the vast majority of the people were not in harmony with the Established Church, but it was also in the interests of religion itself. Passing to education, the learned gentleman said he did not himself see the force of the objections urged against free education.. To his mind, it was well within the functions of the State to establish a thoroughly well-grounded system of elementary education, which should be free to all thet citizens of the United Kingdom. He thought tfle Welsh ought to have an unsectarian national university, at which young Welshmen may pursue their studies in every branch of knowledge and he should be in favour and do his best to support a scheme for uniting the present three colleges into such a university as he had described with the power of granting degrees to the students. Coming next to the land question, Sir Horace kaid that was a subject to which he had given very considerable attention, and it had been very gratifying to him to find that the bill recently introduced by the Lord Chancellor for regulating the transfer and tenure of the land was almost exactly on the lines lie had intimated in letters lie had pub- lished. He went on to say that land should be taxed not on the rent, but on its value. (Cbeers.) An aspect of thfeland Question which particularly interested those preseivfc was the burning subject of royalties. The principle that struck him was that they should have a eliding-scale, something similar to that adopted with respect to miners' wages in Wales. Sir Horace expressed his approval of Mr Broadhurst'a Leasehold Enfran- chisement Bill, and then referred to the Local Government Bill. If, be said, the bill about to be introduced was reliable and based on sound principles, it should have his support. With re- spect to the House of Lord, he said it should be either ended or mended. As to Royal grants, if he were to express his opinion, he should say no further loyal grants should be made except as a provision for the retmuejot the Heir Apparent. With regard to tho payment of members, Sir Horace said nothing should be done which would make it more difficult for labour representatives to enter Parliament. He suggested whether it-was not worth while making the experiment of giving power -to any constituency to vota a salary to be paid out of the local financial. ciiest to any gentle- man they thought fit to elect. The speaker resumedhis seat after speaking for an hour. J Mr W. R. WILT.S wasthen calleii upon, and on rising was received with loud applause. He said that, like Mr Y eo. ÍJe was a West of England man and a Nonconformist. He was well acquainted with the late Rev Tiiomas Jones, and the'liev Dr Ree", of Swansea, who was a very dear friend of his father. He was interested m Swansea, and South Wales in a way he need not mention, but ¡ he might say that when the wheels ot labour were silent and when the furnaces were blown out, there was a considerable diminution in bis I profits. Speaking of disestablishment and disendowment, ha expressed himself in favour of both measures. It was a national sentiment, and as Air Chamberlain remarked before he left -i p America, it was dangerous to oppose an opinion when it had become a national sentiment,. He was uleased to hear Mr Chamberlain say this, as it was evident tba sea air bad done him good. He meutioned that Defore be ever thought of coming to Wales he had given a large donation to the Liberation Society, with a note "to be used exclusively for Welsh purposes." (Loud cheers.) He advocated a very great reform in the House of Lords, and would go in for life peeragef. Ho was in favour of considerable reform in land law. and as a colliery owner was in favour of the abolition of royalties. He expressed himself in sympathy with Home Rule, aud at the close answered a number of questions very satisfactorily. THE KLECTION. Ou the proposition of Mr Alderman FREEMAN, it was decided that the selection should be tiual. Some conversation ensued, in the coarse of which Mr Isaac Evans asked the council to pause, as the tiu-plate workers were talking of bringing forward a labour candidate. The Rev Emlyu Jones, however, reminded those present that there was a grave danger in delay, as there was a likeiihood of there being a stiff fight before them. The voting was then proceeded with, and the result of the first poll was Davey 62 Burma 54 Wills 9 A second ballot was taken; with tht) ioliodo result:— I)avey 70 Burnie 49 When the numbers were announced there were hooting and cheers. On "tha proposition of the CAAIRHAN, seconded by liev EMLYN JONES,Sir Horace Davey was then uuauimou,iy selected as the Liberal candidate. SIR II, DAVtr KKTDK.VS THANKS. Sir HORAOK, DAVEY, in response, thanked the council most heftrtiiy fur selecting him, and added thatke said thfe with the more emotion and with the leiore heartfelt gratitude because they had selected him out of three, the other two being L gentJfvmeu wht he heartily agreed were gush aa any constituency^^might be proud of. After com- plimenting the association ou the business-like way in which it had proceeded, a determination which argued well for ultimate victory, he said this was the beginning of a personal acquaintance which he hoped would be of a lasting character. He kuew of nothing which would prevent the connec- tion between them front being of long duration. Gentlemen who kuew him at the bar well knew there were very few offices which proved any temptation to him, and there was no man wh went into Parliament more independent-in respect to his actions and aims and objects than he. Pecuniarily he should be a considerable loser, but, if they selected him, he should do his best to look after those local interests as well as those public interests they had committed to his charga. (Cheers.) Mr W. H. Witts, in responding, said if they had Lan actual contest he would come down and fight for Sir Horace Davey, a man for whose character and attainments ho had the highest admratiou. (Loud cheers.) Mr BURNIE was loudly called for, and said he felt gratified with the reception accorded him and the position he had taken. They might rely upon receiving no opposition from him, and he would cordially co-operate to return Sir Horace Davey. (LETTER FROM MR GLADSTONE. The CHAIRMAN tb.u said the following letter had been received by Mr Freeman from Mr Gladstone :— Dear Sir.-In answer to your letter of yesterday, I have to say that in my opinion the constituency of Gower, if it should on the occasion of the present vacancy choose Sir Horace Davey as its representative, would do itstlf high honour and would make a most valuable contribution to the efficiency of the House of Commons. It is also my opinion that the constituency would tind Sir Horace Davey to be in coinnlete accord. ance with its own political views. In thus expressing myself I bAg you to understand that I imply nothing in depreciation of any other person who may have been thought of as a candidate. Further, while I convey my opinion in very decided terms, I convey it to you per- sonally and to such others as have the right to an acquaintance with it, as I have no right to die; ate to a constituency.. W. K. GLADSTONE. In answer to a question. Alderman FiUSEiiAN said the date of the letter was March 8th. The SECRETARY (Mr Hartland) stated that he had received a spontaneous letter from Mr Broadhurst, in which he said :—" When Sir Horace Davey sat for Christchurch he helped me much in the leasehold enfranchisement work, and in other questions of great interest. He was most useful to the labour party in helping them on the Employers' Liability Bill of 1880." Aid. FREEMANI said he had also received the following teiegram from Sir George Trevelyan :— lu answer to your question, I can vouch for S:r Horace Davey as a staunch and sound Liberal." The proceedings soon after terminated.
TO THE EDITOR. SLR,-t read with great surprise in your paper this morning that the council of the Gower Liberal Association have decided to choose their candidate from the following:-Mr W. c H. Wills, Sir Horace Davey,! andi Mr Burnie—three English- men-and this i in the face of the great enthusiasm shewn at present for matters and people distinctly Welsh. I have nothing to say against either of these three men, but I [don't think that either understands Welsh, much less be able to speak it—the favourite language of the majority of the electors of this diatrictJ and the only language which a large number of them understands. A candidate for Parliamentary honours addressing the electors as "Anwyl gyd- wladwyr" has a good effect, and although it is only a sentiment, it is one that should not be ignored—or the Liberal party will find that Welshmen are" Cyrm-u" first, and Liberals or Tories afterwards. I do not wish to mention any names, but surely the council can, by not being in too great a hurry, find a genuine Welshman to look after Welsh interests in Parliament.—I am, &c., A WEST GLAMORGAN ELECTOR. March 9th. [We have received several letters to the same effect, but want of space precludes their insertion. -ED. S. W.D.N.]
SIR HORACE DAVEY. The East AngJwn Daily Times (Ipswich) of to- day (Monday), refering to Sir Horace Davey's selection for the Gower Division, says:—He has little of the regular platform speaker in his style of talk. But his close and cogent argument will no doubt suit the arena of the House of Commons, where, in the six years of Mr Gladstone's second Parliament, he made a distinct reputation, and always secured an attentive audience. Sir Horace Davey failed of election in Ipswich by twenty- eight votes, the contest occurring a few days after the disclosure of Mr Gladstone's Home Rule propositions, A week earlier he would -na,ye won, and the good impression he made upon the constituency was shown by his high poll, which was almost identical with that of his colleague, Lord John Hervey, re- puted the strongest Liberal candidate ever brought into the field.
A LABOUR CANDIDATE. ACTION OF THE TIN-PLATE WORKERS. I An important meeting of tin-plate workmen, colliers, and spelters, was held at Morriston on Saturday, for the purpose of considering what action should be taken with regard to the vacancy in the representation of Gower. The chairman of the Tin-plate Workers' Umon presided, and dele- gates were present from 29 works in the division. Speeches were delivered by Mr Isaac Evans (miners' agent) and other representative men, urging the necessity of direct representation of labour in Parliament. The conduct of the Liberal Association in entirely ignoring the working men was strongly condemned. Mr Isaac Evans said it was an easy matter if the workmen were united to have a labour candidate for that division. In his opinion they could not have a better man to [represent them than Mr David Randell, solicitor, Llanelly, who had worked most unceasingly and unselfishly in the labour cause for the last fifteen J years. If the workmen of the United Kingdom III m weuld only contribute Is per year they could maintain 350 men in Parliament, and if the work- men of South Wales would only contribute ld per week they could maintain ten members in the House. Until they hadasufticieiitnumberof labour representatives they could not expect justice. The meeting enthusiastically decide i to ask Mr Randell to come forward. A deputation was then appointed to wait upon Mr Randell, who was at Swansea.—Mr Randell said he reluctantly acceded to their wishes, on the strict understand- ing that they would stand by him. He would be simply fightiug for the principle of labour repre- sentation and he would only be too pleased, if he were the successful candidate, to hand over the seat to a still more close representative of the working classes.—Upon Mr Randeli's reply being known, committees were at once formed to make arrange- ments for contesting the seat. A mass meeting of electors is announced to be held at Morristou this evening, at which Mr D. Randell will deliver au address.
TO THE EDITOR. Sitt,-I am authorised by the general meeting of tin-plate workers, colliers, and other working men held in Alorriston this evening to strongly protest against the indecorous, hasty, and unfair method adopted by the Gower Liberal Association on Thursday last, in the selection of a candidate for the vacancy in the above division, caused by the lamented death of Mr Yeo. I am anxious to know, and shall be obliged to the secre- tary of the Liberal Association to supply ine, for the benefit of my fellow working inen, with full particulars of how, when, and where were the names of the proposed candidates first brought to the attention of the constituency, and whence and from whom the authority to mvite them was derived. I have gone carefully into the question, aud find that wo have 2,000 tin-plate workers' votes in the division. May I ask if the secretary of one bona fide tin-plate works was present at the meeting? I find that there are l.COC anthracite miners'1 votes in the constituency. Might I ask the secretary if there was one genuine collier at the meeting ? I know there are 600 to 800 house coal minors amongst the electors. Can I venture to ask the secretly if they were directly represented at the meeting ? I am also aware that there are at least 2,000 more working men in the district, but will the secretary suggest that they were directly represented at the meeting? I boldly declare that the working men, forming as they dj more than one-half of the constituency, and more than three-fourths of the Liberal vote, were not present at the meeting directly or indirectly. On the contrary, they have not ia any way been consulted in this matter, Those who are the backbone of the constituency have been completely ignored. But if the Liberal Association mean to stifle our opinion in this way, I beg to remind them that they reckon without their Jiost, for the working classes do not intend, as dumb, driven cattle, to be shut out from all their political rights by a self- nominated association, which think, by clever wirepulling, to foist a foreiguer upon us. The Liberal Association have so far been out of touch with the people and of their national aspirations that they have not even selected a Welshman to represent them. The association preach Cymrv Fydd," but practice the very opposite. We have every respect for Sir Horace Davev, the selected of the Liberal Association, but iet 1m English or Scotch constituency first honour them- selves by returning him to Parliament. Depend upon it that Welshmeu ouly know best what they want, and can bast briug home the evidence of their re- quirements. In au article under date February 28th last, you, sir, referring to the Merthyr vacancy, stated that the working men were properly reminded that they were rather backward in availing themselves of their right in electioneer- ing matters, and that you had often urged the wage-earning classos not to hang too much upon others, but to go forward boldly demanding tlH'Ir fights. Seeing therefore that the Liberal Asset tion have not even consulted the working men. and acting upon your advice, we have decided to take the matter in our own hand", and have re solved to ask Mr David Randell, LlaneUy, 1- solicitor to the Miners* and Tin plate Workers' Associations,to comeforward as our can- didate, promisl'tlim the undivided support of the working classes. In hiin we have a voun<* Welshman, a strong unequivocal Radical ilome Ruler-a sound Liberal on all points, a. man who is one of us, who feels for us, who for many years has fought for us, who knows our wants, and will fulfill our needs. He is a man also Iho will command not only the undivided vote of the working classes, but who also lims a warm place in the affections of the people. We have askod him to champion our cause, and in consenting I to do so we have promised him loyal sup- port. We have now to ask you, sir, to lend us your powerful assistance, and to the Nonconformist ministers in whose congregations the voters are, we ask them to eome over to Macedonia and help us, hoping to gain nought els'j but the true and honourable satisfaction of the peode.. Iu conclusion, I my say that I have received letter. from all the miners' agents expressing full and complete accord with our object, and promising us every snppt'rt.—I am &c., THOMAS PHILLIPS. Secretary, Tiu-plate Workers' Union. March 10, 1888.
DISASTERS TO SHIPPING. WRECK OF A NEWPORT-LADEN BARQUE. tiOSS OF LIFE. A CARDIFF STEAMER ASHORE. From reports received it would appear that the severe gala which sprang up in Cardiff early on Sunday morning, and increased in intensity as the day progressed, was experienced in many parts of the country. In London, wind, with occasional heavy rain showers, was blowing with great force all day. The weather was particularly stormy aJong the southern and western coasts. At Cardiff the full force of the gale was felt, and it is somewhat marvellous that more damage has net been done to property than has actually been the case. The most serious case is that of All Saints' Churcb, in Tyndall-street, where a large portion of the roof has been stripped bare of slates. In the docks there were one or two trifling mishaps. A large iron sailing ship, the City of Bengal, broke from her moorings, but was secured without inflecting much much injury on herself or neighbouring vessels. Another ship had her forecastle damaged by dragging her mooring ropes a little. The gale, which came from a point about west by north, was felt in its full intensity down channel, where the pilots described it as being a perfect hurricane. No casualties are reported with the exception of the s.s. Trojan, which parted her anchor off Sully, but is now riding safely in Cardiff Roads. A Dover telegram states that the channel is very rough, and serious damage has been done to property. The King of the Belgians intended to have crossed to Osteud, but, in consequence of the storm, postponed the journey. A number of trading steamers which were proceeding down channel put back. and are anchored in the Downs.

CARDIFF v. GLOUCESTLIL I Played at the Slip Field, Gloucester, in line "R -he, anci IN the presence or the Car. iff team there w,¡,.t! F ve a sentees, viz., C. FC. Arthur, f'. 1Han. Q. D. Kedzlie. G. A. Young, and ii. he, e.1o, while GLOUCESTER were leoicsented t')' their full strength. Cardiff kicked off from the He-. I- f )I t end, and sent tl, ,ali into touch at the 2j flag, where scrimmages were formed. The Gloucester forwards, aided by some good I>iay by I> ,IL, worked to the centre, where .1 rnian, getting "the ball fioir. a serum, passed to KEEPINGS, w11lJSC:I pass to JONOS was intercepted by Hag ell. who, DODGING through his men. passed to Coates, aud Lk, running well, WAS no; I flopped till he had reached the Oardifi 25. The I visitors removed to the cen re, where Tayior put in a good kick into touch. ¡,¡,¡:d the forwards worked to the ZO 1me. A lot of cri.llUl..girj" followed in tilt vicinity of the Cardiff 25 Tue visitors at length got the ball loose, auo Rosser livans, to whom it WHS passe!, ran and kicked to the Gloucester end, Tne return SENT the leather to tbe centre, where ilyoart staved anugiy rueh. Helped by a big kick from one of their three-Q jai iers the Glou- C-ster men once again invaded the Cardiff 2S.. The WELSHMEN playing well together iu front by degrees got ti ball aheid. Tiie GLOUCESTER backs resorting to passing at about JUII"S spoiled the GAT^E by a smart piece of collaring. After a tight scrum a kick from a Gloucester three-quarter seaR the ball near the CARDIFF 25. COATEE, Hftr A lot of SCRIMMAGING, got off, but på."il1¡: wildiy near the :oal-1iu" a spien dd chance was lost. Half a miuute later Brown got oft, and, passing to Taylor, the latter got ill e:1.Sily ,ear the posts. Smith took the place, and amiiUt loud cheers landed a goal ON the bail being restarted J t.1U Evans returned, and a scrimmage ensued in tLJ" centre. After a lot of even work, O. J. Evans got a pass to Rosser who p it in ill punt. H iJ. spoiled the return, and, pickiug up, transferred to Hybart, who SAVE tloe bail to W. E. U. Williams. The latter :ansfnrrcd to Big. woo wound up the finest bit of combined play shown dunug the match by running to the Gloucester 23. Thereafter CUiouee ter's position was hotly attacked, and ou •iverai occasions the Card'dians had bard lines in not scoring. Effectively wheeljn two or three "scrum- the home site at length, ueceeded in cet '.ng th- bail T ut to the centre. Ù. J Evans, obtaining posse sion, ran and passed to Biggs, who recovered some of the lost ground. Once A^AIN the Gloucester men relieved, only to have | the ball returned to their 26 by a tille punt fro" Keep- ings. Rosser Evans now stepped a rush by turning the ball into touch near the centre. After the hn-out a scrimmage was formed, and on the bail emerging it was assed to Fred Jones. Tiie latter completely faded to I secure it, and Bagneil dribbled oil to the Cardiff 25, where he was intercetned n the nick 0" time by Keep- ings and HUGHES The Cardiff forwards drove the bail back to the centre, but ;t v/.is returned by Hughes (Giouces er) into touch iu the Cardiff 25. A titnei; K:ck irom Hughes a minute later Uverteu a possible score, and assisted M the removal of the leather beyond the 1 visitors 2B., The ball was hereabouts at the call of half- time. 011 resuming, Smith started the leather, and at the i outset GLOUCESTER territory was invaded. A smart piece of following up by Hybart had the effect of removing operations to within tbe Gloucester 26. Keepings replied to a kick out, but. on Taylor respond- ing Hughes utterly failed to get iu his kick. >"e»ei- tl..i;t; the visitors contrived to work back into the home 25. Biggs wa-s instrumental in stopping an attempt to rush out, and now an ominous siience feil on the hitherto jubilant crowd, as it became apparent I that Cardiff were getting decidedly the best of the game. A flukey sort of kick enabled the home team, after a prolonged interval, to loosen the tongues of the crjwd, tbe bail getting out too the ceutre. Tight scrimmaging WAS now AS heretofore since crossing over the style of play, and to the credit of the Cardiff pack; it must be piacea on record that they were more than holding their own. llano ictpped though thty were by I a shaky se of three-quarters to suppo; t mean, Jem Evans at length t ut in a LONG Sick.Hughes iGlouces T r., ill attempting to return, ;8 a most extraordinary 11 atiae, TH* hall flying over > head and falling 18 touch MJ G >al. After ttiit DRBP-FTIFQIE CltrUlS VFRA RETUNSWIVR the attack, and presently O. J. Krans, picking un near tiietouel, line, and beyond tlJ" 25, dropped a macuiticent goal, the klC, compelling ev-i. the prejudiced and one- s-idea crowd to applaud. Cardiff, oil the ball being again in motion, continued to have the best of the struggle. Anoher "uiall" by Fred Jones gave Gloucester a chance of getting thelyllltottiecentre, and indeed they were only prevented from taking it still further afield by the forwarus hastening Lp. The bacKs now exchanged kicks, and then Hyuart distin- guished himself by burstng through a crowd and putting in a short run. The advantage was, however, loat, and the ball in a lot of loose, scrambling play, worked to the Cardiff 26. Here Taylor took apass from Brown. and ran in amidst a trt-menious outburst of cheering. The Cardifhtns disputed the point 0;) the ground that tne ball when passed to Taylor had been improperly taken from a "I scruri," but, after a protracted discus- sion, the referee decided against them. The place k;ck was frightful to contemplate, the ball not rising A foot from the ground. Cardiff PASSED home alter drooDing cut, and invaded the home 25. Keepings made his mart at a line out near tbe centre. Hugoes took the kick, and, af. er some exchanges, the ball was finally sent into touch a yard or two from the Gloucester 2O. From then on to the end the game was fiercely cont-sted on fairly even terms, but. no scoring taking place, Gloucester won by one goal and one try to one goal and one minor.

SWANSEA v NEWPORT. These teams met. for the third encounter this sea- s N, at Newport. The afternoon was showery. 01 a better gate would have been gathered to see the match, which excitd much interest. as the visitors have on each previous occasion been the winners. The Swansea captall1 kicked off agaiust the wind towards the nursery end, but the leather was charged down. Following the scrimmage, Mor- gan got in a skyer, but Saunders saved for the moment, and the forwa.rds pressed down. In succeeding onetations Powell, getting a free kick, aided materially to ke-JJ the game in Swansea territory, b!it Meredith was foremost in saving, until from a scrimmage in the far corner, Harding gave Jordan a pass, and he ran in with a try. The kick, entrusted to Wenb. fell short. The visitors forced the leather up into neutral territory, but it was almost immediately utiven down, and after some scrimmaging in the far corner, the visitors conceded a third touchdown. D. Gwynn and Meredith carried the leather up, and, invading their opponents' ground for the first time, exacted a touen. down. The Newport team took a speedy revenge. They rushed down the ball, and, after two or. three scrimmages in the, near corner, Powell from the line-up, got posss-sion, and dropped easily over the line. Morgan's kick, brilliantly conceived, went a foot on the wrong side of the uprights. Play in the visitor's territory was again resumed immediately afterwards, and at half-time the score stood in favour of Newport by two tries and three minors to one minor. Change of ends brought no cessation of the visitors' ill fortune. Within a minute of the lestart Morgan kicked up, and Saunders touched down. Play wholly threatened the visitors, and after some spirited dribbling and passing in Swan- sea territory. Morgan got a fine running pass, and ran around with the third try. The position was easy, but Morgan could not improve on his uccess. Some capital open play followed, and the game beuame more equalised, but still slightly against the visitors. Jordan got a pass in Swansea territory, and was going in, but Jones overtook and collared him iron the rear as he was about to cross the line. At the call of time the game was in neutral ground, with Newport the winners by three tries and tive minors to two miuors, The following were the teams :—Aewport— Back, T England three-quarter BAJ^S, H M Jordan, R W Poweli, J E Webb, and G A Morgan half-backs, C J 1 homas and T Downe forwards.

Ireland kicked oil from the north goal, ana during the next quartet of an hour the piay was very even, the visitors showing weli up in the open scrimmages Waipoie dropped the ball INTO touch, AS it was being thrown in, Ramsay got away in capital styie, and, hi being tacfcled, pae-« I to Stevenson, who, in turned, handed the ball to Marfaioane, '■ nci, .IFLET a grand IUU, the London Scottish man gained a try, whicu was con- verted into a. coal by J. Berry. Afterwards Ire- land were compelled to 1 ouch down in defence. On resuming after the usual interval, after one OI two exchanges between the backs, McL-.nsrden, by a grand run, took the play to the Scottish 25. Scotland asserted their superiority, and drove their opponents back. A b, iriaiit piece of play on the part of the Irish forwards took the game again to the Scottish 25. The Scottish f irwariis were again prominent, and then McEwan broke away, Ireland having to touch down in defence. It WAS a hard game till the finish, the Irishmen play- ing in a most determined manner, but though Scotland were a man short till the second portion they held their own well, and ultimately won oil ;rooalt,o nothing. At the close both teams %i ere loudly cheered. AVALES Y SCOTLAND (ASSOCIATION). Played et Edinburgh in splendid weather, before a very large crowd.

A NEWPORT-LADEN STEAMER ASHORE. SEVENTEEN LIVES IMPERILLED. The barque Lady Dufferin, of Plymouth, b"und from Newport, Moo., to Monte Video, with 1,2CO tons of railway sleepers and iron, drove ashore at Polpeor Cove, near the Lizard, just before midnight on Saturday. At the time a heavy sea prevailed, with a strong wind from the south-west. The rocket apparatus was got out, but, owing to the inaccessible spot on which the vessel lay, it bad to be carried by hand. Meanwhile the Lizard lifeboat was launched. The latter arrived fdongside, and, as the heavy sea rendered it difficult to establish communication, the lifeboat dropped an wichor, and, after some difficulty, dropped down to the leeward side of the wteck and succeeded in rescuing the whole crew, seventeen hands all told. The lifeboat then landed the shipwrecked meu at Polpeor Cove, ana they were kindly cared for at the Lizard.

DOCK ENTERPRISE AT CARDIFF. FORMATION OF A DOCK TWO MILES LONG. THE RIVER RUMNEY UTILIZED. No proof could be mere complete or convincing of the remarkable prosperity and development of Card.fi than the manner in which of late years the attention of commercial men, manufacturers} and other capitalists has been centred in the Welsh metropolis. It is, therefore, without any feeling of surprise, but rather with a sentiment of gratifi- cation at a denoument to which events have long been pointing, that we place our readers in possession of a scheme for the formation in the vicinity of Cardiff of a dock which will, at any rate, so far as size is concerned, eclipse all its local competitors. Currency has been given of late to a large number of chimerical rumours with regard to the advent to this town of several huge industrial establish- ments, but many of these have been proved to be mere canards circulated for a set purpose. In the present instance, however, a powerful syndicate has been formed with the express object of con- structing an import and export dock, two miies in length, having its outlet near the mouth of the river Rumney, and extending thence along the coast in an easterly direc- tion. So far only a preliminary stage, has been reached in the negctiitions but unless unforseen difficulties are encountered, the bona, fides of the project is undoubted, and the necessary parliamentary powers will be sought next autumn. The evidence of success which has attended the Barry Dock and Railways venture first attracted the attention of the syndicate to tha suitability of Cardiff as the locale for a good-dividend paying property. When Barry shares attained a premium of 25 per cent. such a patent proof cf confidence in the commercial future of South Wales naturally drew the attention of speculators to this new scene of enterprise. The syndicate in ques- tion, therefore, aided by the opinion of experienced engineers, have decided, after due deliberation, to construct a dock in the position indicated,and it is their intention to offer special facilities to manufacturers and other exporters to induce them to establish their work- in the vicinity. The scheme, which has not yet reached defiuite proportions, will be based on the following lines. The entrance lock will be placed on the River Rumny, at a distance ot about half-a-mile from the channel. It will lead into a basin, when another icck will conduct to the dock itself. The method of construction to be adopted will combine economy with service- ableness. Lying partly on the mainland and partly ou the foreshore, the excavations from the one side will serve to construct the other, whilst the seaward embankment will Le of such Extent as to leave plenty of space for whariage and railway communications. The number of landowners whose properties are embraced iu the proposal amouut to about 12, one of whom is Lord Tredegar. At present the success or otherwise of the scheme largely depends upon the willingness of manufacturers to lease the neighbouring wharf space and its correspond- ing area of ground for their premises. Concerning this phase of the question; however, littie doubt is felt, as the terms will be based on such an equitable scale as to render this consideration a favourable one to speculators inclined to transfer their establishments to the coast. A for tidal accommodation, the dock wiil offer facili- ties about equal to those obtainable in the Roath Dock. Ti.e railway connections with the l.cal lines wiii be excellent. The Great Western Railway mainline passes parallel to the dock at a distance of a quarter of a miln a linp, half mite in length, wiil join the Tafif Vaie Roatti Exten- sion Railway, aud the Rumney cau be gained a little higher up. We will probably be enabled to afford our readers farther information with regard to this important undertaking before long.
GROSS PARENTAL NEGLECT I AT CARDIFF. SHOCKING REVELATIONS. A MOTHER COMMITTED FOR M ANS L AUGHTE ti. Some shocking revelations were made on Saturday evening in the course of the adjourned inquiry which Mr Reece, district coroner, con- ducted at the Roath Police-station, Cardiff, into the circumstances attending the death of a child named Alice Maud Sturgess, aged 2 years and 9 months. The father of the child was a slaughter- man, and the deceased was fouud dead when the parents, with whom it had been sleeping, awoke on the morning of the 7i<h instatt. A post-mortem examination of the body was made by Dr Evans, Dr Campbell, aud Dr Treharns, and tho conclu- sion arrived at was that death h-»d resulted from iciprnper treatment by the parfnts. Tbe body was 27 £ iucheslong ana its weight 9|:bs—a «ize altogether disproportionate to the^h»*u^s mpa, Murgaret Dicks, who had occupied rooms at the same house as the Sturgesses in Janet-street, Roath, gave evidence which revealed circum- stances the likrj to which, the coroner said, had never previously come under his notice. Mrs Dicks said the deoeased's mother was addicted to drink, and used to starve the children. In proof of the latter statement, she said she and her old man" had often cut bread from their own loaf for the children, and she herself had supplied the baby with milk. Gentlemen of the jury," she added, her eyes suffused with tears, in the name of my Saviour g,) and look at the other two children, or they will soon be gone." Both the mother and the father were habitual drunkards. Sturgess earned 30s a week, and he gave the bu.'k of it to his wife. She did not think the husband knew the children wanted food. There was very little furniture in the rooms occupied by the parents. A little stretcher and a few old sacks were provided for the children.—In reply to Dr Evans, witness said that besides keeping them without food the mother used to beat the children with a cane. A Juror: Don't you think you ought to have made this knowu to the police?—Witness I ought to have done so. I am sorry I didn't. Tiie Coroner: I wish ueighoours wouid speak out in such cases, for by doing so they would often save life. Tuis poor little thing has been done to death, and the baby is as near death as a child can be. Dr Evans Is it true that she used to take the food her husband brought home and sell it for drink? Witness: Yes, she used tc carry it out by plate- fuls, and hawk it about the street. THe Coroner, in summing up, said this was one of the worst cases that had ever come before him. If the jury beiieved the evidence of Mrs Dicks and the doctor, they could not entertain the slightest doubt as to this child having been starved to death. The jury, after an absence of nearly an hour, returned a verdict of "Manslaughter" against Ann Sturgess, the deceased's mother, whoua the coroner thereupon committed to gaol. She will be brought before the magistrates at the police- court this (Monday) morning. At the request of the jury, the coroner called John Sturgess into the room and severely repri- manded him.

Mil CHAMBEilLAi^oTGttN. A J NT EH VIE \Y. THE RATIFICATION OF THE TREATY. THREATS OF VIOLENCE. Mr C:¡:Hnbed.n landed at the Prince's Landing Stage, Liverpool, by tug from the Utubria, at 5 15 p.m. r>n Saturday. He was received by the Euavor and Mr JesKe Coliiags, I\1.r. Having dnveu ;u the mayors carriage to the orth Western Hotel, the right bou. gentleman received addresses from the Liverpool Chanioer of Commerce aud other bodies. III replying, Mr CHA51BEELAIN -aid the success of the negotia- tions in wij 'c,'t he had been engaged was largely due to his colleagues. Sir Lionel West aud s,.r Charles Tupper. Mr Coke, president of the chamber of commerce, had tru:y retnaiked Tliat nothing coald be more unfortunate than to have recourse to barbarous methods tor the settle- ment of the dispute between Great Britain aud the United States. War iu such a case wtuid be a crime. The settle- ment was one which the commission bei:eve«i to be fair and honourable. He had tiie best reason to believe the result would be approved oy the Canadian Legislature, n,)r could he doubt that the American Senate would rice superior to party considerations. Mr Chamberlain left Liverpool shortly :.ft.: seven, and arrived ntNew-street Stat,on, Birming- ham, shortly before nine. There was a iarge assembly of ueariy all the leading men of the town on the platform, including the mayor, Mr Powell Williams, M.P., and Mr Wiggin, M.P. Iu an interview which a special representative of the Press Association had with Nir Ciiainber. laia on his return from America, the right hoc. gent.e,n&it said,with regard t ■ the Fisheries Treaty, that cite &a&&e. being Republican, might be unwilling to allow the President of the Democratic Government to get the credit of a successful treaty. He did not believe they would take the immense responsibility of rejecting it, but what probably might happen, a-id what he anticipated, was that tbf! Senate would act with regard to it as they did witu regard to the Extradition Treaty, and postpone it until after the presidential election. He haa no doubt, however, that even if they did reject it, the settlement which the commissioners haa nego- ciated would be the settlement ultimately adopted it] any case. He spoke very warmly of the kind- ness of his new frieuds in America, but added that during his stay he had been the recipieut of a numberot anonymous threatfi,but nothiag came of them. However, from the time he landed until he left, lie was everywhere accompanied by four detectives. This protection was afforded solety at the initiative of the United States Govern- ment, neither he nor our own executive iiaving taken any steps in that direction. It appears that knowledge came to the New York police that a certain number of persons had been t,)Ii off to do him mischief, and be thinks it highly prouable that, if the measures adopted haa not been taken, something disagreeable, if not danger- ous, ra.gbt-have occurred.
