POLITICAL GOSSIP. THS Aihencemn is sorry to hear from Nice that Lord Brougham is very ill-it is feared past hope. IT is stated by a military contemporary that the Prussian Government has given orders to Messrs. Tait, of Limerick, for 300,000 suits of clothes for their soldiers. THE Little Times says Contrary to expectation, Mr. Brand has been induced to continue, so long as health enables him, in the office of Whip to the Liberal party. NICHOLAS HURST, ESQ., who for many years held the office of Poor-law Inspector for the Northern district, has resigned in consequence of his having met with a serious accident. AT Tiverton, on Thursday, Mr. Amory was presented with a requisition, and consented to come forward at the next election, in conjunction with the Hon. G. Den- maa, There were 120 electors present, and the requisi- tion was signed by 206 electors. MB. J. POPE HENNESSY, late M.P. for the King's County, has been (according to the Express) offered the Governorship of Labuan and Consul-Generalship of Borneo. The salary of the joint offices is XI,100 per annum. MR. ROBAKTES, in consequence of ill health, has inti- mated his intention of resigning his seat in Parliament as representative of East Cornwall. IT is said by the Daily News that an Under-Secre- Laryship for Scotland is actually created or to be created under tie Home Office, and that Sir James Fergusson, M.P., fey Ayrshire, i* tn bo. thft first bolder of the office. A SUSI'CENA was served upon Lord Naas in London, on Saturday, requiring his attendance at Dublin for the production of Godfrey Massey's original statement, which the Crown. Solicitor swore was in his hands. It is said at Dublin that Lord Stanley has brought this document under the notice of the American Government for its information respecting Fenianism. THE Express says a proposal has been made that the committee of Brooks's Club should have the power to admit without ballot live peers or commoners every year, one of the supposed reasons for the suggestion being that, if so empowered, they would probably admit in this way the Duke of Argyll and Mr. Gladstone. THE President of the Poor-law Board, says the Ob- server. has done a very graceful and proper Act in ap- pointing Mr. John Lambert, the Poor-law Inspector, to the new office of Receiver under the new Act for the Better Management of the Destitute Sick Poor of the Metropolis. Mr. Lambert is known as having prepared the Poor-law statistics in reference to the Reform of the Representation of the People. He has also prepared the information for the reform of the law of rating,-and the establishment of district hospitals and asylums in London; for the sick and insane. Mr. Gathorne Hardy deserves all credit for putting the right man in the right pi ace," and entrusting the working of the new system to the person who knows most about the whole subject, and who is so capable of administering it with #are and capacity.
