THBBB has just been erected by tho Marquis of Bute, in the parish ohurchyard of Falkirk, a handsome granite, cross in memory of the warriors belonging to Bute who fell at the battle of Falkirk in 1298. OVBa 1,800 of the milesmen of the Great Southern and Western Railway of Ireland, have struck for in- creased wages, and against certain alleged grievances. Two hundred more have ceased work, and the strike has spread along the whole line. The consequenoes are likely to be of a most serious character. A BAD BOAT ACCIDENT ooourred at Cardigan bar on Friday. About half-past four o'clock in the afternoon, a boat whioh was attempting to cross the bar capsized, and the occupants (five young men) were drowned. At the time there was a heavy ground sea on. The un- fortunate excursionists were students at the Cardigan collegiate sohooL STRANGE OCCURRENCE AT Su.A schooner has been observed to approach the shore near the Lizard and then suddenly to change her course and head away to the west, from which direction she had come. Shortly afterwards the body of a middle-aged man was washed ashore, dead, but apparently not long dead. There were cuts on the bead and face, from which blood was flowing. The body bore no papers leading to identification, but the dreas was like that of a pilot. AT the Littledcan police-court, on Monday, the magistrates were occupied in hearing the case against Sabrina Cole of poisoning her husband. It was alleged that the accused mixed poison with the pepper which the husband used with his beef. Mr Horsley, the county analyst, proved finding strychnine and vermin powder in the pepper. Mr Carter, surgeon, of Gloucester, de- posed that the sufferings of Cole were not consistent with poisoning by strychnine, and eventually the magis- trates dismissed the case. RESPIRATOR FOR MINES.-M. Louis Denayrouze has lately perfected an apparatus for. enabling men to enter mines even while they are full of gas, which will no doubt be the means of many lives being saved both after explosions have occurred and in examining places where gas has accumulated. It consists of a kind of knapsack or aerophore, as it is called, filled with compressed atmospheric air, which is carried on the back, and supplies fresh air through a pipe with a regulating valve, to a respirator carried in the mouth, a mask being worn to protect the eyes and keep the nostrils closed. At the same time, the lamp is supplied with air by another tube, or it may have its own in- dependent supply carried with it. The whole appa- ratus, when in use, has the great merit of leaving both arms free for work. A small pressure guage is at- tached to the aerophore by which the man may see how much air is lefc, that he may leave before it is all used up. This respirator, &c., is also useful in working in gases at blast furnaces. Mr Jacob Higson, of Man- chester, and Mr James Barrow, mining engineer to the Llynvi Iron and Coal Co., both speak very highly of the merits of the invention. <
