The children who are re- ceived in these institutions will be provided for in every pos- sible manner by her Grace until they have been taught a trade.

A Washington dispatch of the 11th July states that a gentleman from Fortress Monroe reports the health of Jefferson Davis much better than it has been at any time during his incarceration.

Bunter, the marine store-dealer who stabbed Detective-Inspector Annis with a sword on Saturday, has committed suicide in the police cell.

A gentleman's yacht has been seized in South- ampton Water by the Custom-house authorities, in conse- quence of contraband goods having been found on board. The owner has been exonerated from all blame, but the cap- tain has been held to bail, and some of the crew have been committed to prison. The Customs laws are very severe in such seizures, as yachts generally are exempted from official supervision to prevent the pleasure of yachting from being diminished, and from the belief that the rank and charactei of yacht owners are ample security that the revenue laws will not be infringed. An inquest was recently held in the City-road, London, on the body of William Hedrich, aged sixty-seven years. Deceased had been left a legacy of £ 1,400, and be- came very intemperate.

A labouring man named Henry Grey was in- dicted at the Oxford Assizes for attempting to murder his father-in-law, John Thompson, or do him grievous bodily harm. On the evening of May 18 the prisoner entered the prosecutor's house, and having abused him for some time, stabbed him in the temple with a knife in a dangerous manner. Prisoner was in liquor at the time, and was known to be of very violent temper, especially when drunk. The jury returned a verdict of guilty against him, and his lord- ship sentenced him to penal servitude for six years. Speaking about the climate of Australia, the Adelaide Weekly Mail says :—On Sunday last seven widows met at a house in Margaret-street, North Adelaide, whose united ages are represented by the figures 527. The eldest was 85, the youngest 62. A country in which (amongst old colonists) sexagenarians are very numerous, and octo- genarians by no means rare, cannot be afflicted with a very unhealthy climate.

But faint hopes are entertained of his recovery. Mr. Coxwfcll has received from Glasgow his bal- loon Research, as it was forwarded from Islay.
