During the month of May 40,000 emigrants arrived at New York from Europe, making the total since the 1st of January 88,710. There is already a great rush to secure berths in the steamers going to Europe next spring by people anxious to attend the Paris Universal Exposition. Although the time is almost a year off, both the Cunard and Inman lines announce that their state rooms are nearly all taken. The Cobden railway station, on the Illinois Central Railroad, about twenty miles from Chicago, is the chief depou for the produce of numerous fruit farms ia the surrounding country. From seven to twenty tons of strawberries are sent daily from these farms to supply the markets of the north. Eight years ago these farms were portions of the primi- tive forest. Collision in the Channel.—At two o'clock on Sunday morning the French lugger Eugene, coal lader, from Sunderland, came in collision off Dungexiesa with the brig Ellen. The lugger sank immediately. The captain and crew were just able to scramble on board the brig, and were landed at Dover utterly destitute. They were received at the Sailors' Home, where they are lodged, clothed, and fed, and from whence they will be forwarded to Calais. Glorious Old Relies.-There are but six officers surviving who took part in Lord Howe's famous victory on Jane 1, 1794, over the French fleet, under the command of Admiral Villaret de Joyeuse.

Tremlett, of Royal Sovereign, 100; Mate (now Retired Admiral) E. Ratsey, of Defence, 74; Midshipman (now Admiral) Davies, of Glory, 98; Midshipman (now Retired Rear-Admiral) Hext, of Russell, 74; Retired Captain Barrell served as boy on board of Brunswick, 74. Huffianly Assault upon aWoman,—Michael Burns, a tall, powerful-looking Irish labourer, .was placed at tlie bar on Thursday, before Alderman Challis, at the London Guildhall, charged wiiih a. brutal and unprovoked assault upon the complainant. Mrs. Emily Brown, a very respectable, but delicate- looking female, said she resided at 22, St. John-street- road. She had been to Guy's Hospital to see her uncle and cousin, who are lying there suffering from the injuries they received at the accident which hap- pened at Guildhall just previous to th9 presentation of the freedom of the City to the Dake of Edinburgh. Her father was with her, and while they were passing the end of Farringdon-atreet she felt a dreadful kick in the small of the back. On turning round she saw the prisoner, whom she had never seen before, and said_ to him, Why did you do that P to which he replied, "_Go on, or I will do it again." Witness further said she had never spoken to him op.given him any cause for offence.—James Qaiily, the father of tho prosecutrix, corroborated her statement.
