THE ROYAL MIDSHIPMEN. In describing the arrival of the Flying Squadron in Japan, and the landing of the two English Princes in that country, the Japan Gazette gives some interesting details of the voyage of the squadron from Brisbane. At Fiji it is stated the squadron had been expected, and the natives proceeded to wel- come them in their own peculiar fashion, which, to say the least, appears to have been very hearty. The officers were invited on shor" to a "makfe makè," or dance by torchlight, in which the King's warriors t iok part, dressed in their war paint, and armed with immense clubs, which they twisted about with as much ease as if they were only twigs, and throw- ing themselves into all sorts of fantastic attitudes. The (lance was renewed every night. The chiefs boarded the Bacchante in order to see the Princes, bringing presents of turtle, &c.; and before the vessel left natives and foreigners were invited to a dance on board the Inconstant, an invitation which as many availed themselves of as the ship would hold. The natives greatly admired the engines of war on board; but what astonished them most during the stay of the squadron was an exhibition of the electric light. On passing Pleasant Island some of the inhabitants boarded the men-of-war, bringing with them pigs, yams, fowls, and a couple of kittens. The officers of the Inconstant were somewhat surprised to receive a visit here from an Englishman, who gave the name of Harris, and said that he had been on the island 39 years. The inhabitants of Pleasant Island number about 2,000, and are noted for their frequent quarrels with each other. The man Harris said be was a native of Plymouth, and had always been well treated by the natives.
IRELAND. SEIZURE OF UNITED IRELAND.* ARREST OF THE STAFF. Several brai.ches of the Ladies' Land Lesgne in the counties of Car ow and Wicklow have resolved to boycott the Exhibition of Td,h Manufactures if any member of the Royal or Viceregal families, or any agent of the Government, opens or has any official connection with it. The Land League organ, United Ireland, is sup- pressed. Late on Thursday evening Mr. Mailon. the chief of the detective police, with six or seven consta- bles, entered the office in Dublin, and commanded the stoppage of the publication. The paper had been sometime at press, and the officers seize 1 at the printed copies, over 4,2CO. It is believed that very few copies of the paper had been up to that time circulated. Mr. Leamy, M.P., was in the office at the time, as also were about a dozen of the Ladies' Land League, who vituperated Mr. Mallon and his men, and did everything in their power to provoke them, and put false construc- tions on every word they dropped. The only persons belonging to the staff of the United Ireland who were on the premises at the time of the seizure JLfv recently appointed sub-editor, Mr. Arthur O'Keefe, and a clerk named Henry Burton, formerly employed in the Land League offices. Both were arrested and conveyed to xtilmainham Prison, on warrants charged them with intimi lation. All the Staff of the suppressed journal, except the foreman printer and the manager, who have evaded arrest, or,, now in custody. The type of the Irish World was also taken possession of, but the publication of the Irithman and another paper printed on the premises was not interfered with. Copies of the impression of United Ireland that were seized w*re afterwards sold in Dublin for as much as half- a-rrown each. The police in many other towns seized Copies at the newsagents, whom they warned not to pell the paper in future. BRUTAL ATTACK. A dreadful assault was committed at Graigaetrpon Carbin R. Coryers a few nights ago as he was pro. ee"ffirig on foot to the residence of his brother, Mr Charlts C- nyers, Casttftown Conyerx. The captain wa1 suddenly pounced upon hy two men, who sprang over th" wall, and before he c..u.d defend himself w. felied to the earth by a blow of a stone fiom behind. After being otherwise maltreated, one of the parties caught Captain Cony era's thumb in his mouth and nearly bit it through. They then ran away, leaving the victim of their treachery almost senseless on the road. Captain Cony rs struggled to the house of one of his brother's tenants, but as soon as they perceived who was demanding admittance, and what was his condition, the door of the dwelling was closed against him. He subse- quently reached the constabulary barracks fainting from loss of b ood. The utmost sympathy is felt for the wounded gentleman, and not less indigna* tion for his cowardly assailants. A TENANT-FARMER MURDERED. A tenant named Btennan has been shot dead at Arigua, near Boyle, the rea-ton assigned for the outrage being that the deceased had paid his rent privately. No arrests have been made. The crime bas caused the utmost consternation, and is univer- saly condemned. Deceased had paid his rent on the day before. He was a tenant on Lady Louisa Tenisons e*tate in county Roscommon. The body wa- foand only a short distance fiom a police barrack. Another account states that Brennan WloS evicted some two months ago fcr non-payment of rent, and two "Emergency" men were placed in occu- pation of his farm. His family had to seek shelter With his brother, who occupied an adjoining holding. It was rumoured that Brennan had made proposals with a view to being reinstated, but a few nights ago ajjarty of armed men visited him and warned him on pain of death not to pay any rent. tie, however, disregarded the threat, and paid his rent.. On Tues- day night a number of men surrounded his residence, the door was' opened by deceased, and as .-oon as they saw Brennan one of them fired, mortally wounding him. ° The following threatening notice was posted exten- lively in the neighbourhood of the murder :—"Fe!I w Countrymen.-I am informed that tyrant (th<-agent e( the property) is going to collect rent on Tuesday, the 13th inst., at Death to any one that pays rents till the suspects are released. Remember Davitt and Parnell; practise his doctrine. Remember your doom-pay no rent.-RORT OF THE HILL." Repeated applications have been made to the Goverement tc lend additional force to the district. MR. PARNELL'S FARM. A great demonstration took place at Avondale, I to. Wicklow, on Thursday, for the purpose of ploii"h- ing and manttring Mr. Parnell's land; 183 plou^ns and 500 carts were engaged in the operations. The manure was drawn from Avonmore House (Mr. Parnell's residence} to Garrymore, nearly three mi'es distant. Horses, ploughs, and men were decorated with green ribbons. Mr Corbett, M.P., and Mr. Redmond, M.P., were present. Mr. Henry George, an American, was also present. About 3,000 people congregated on the grounds. An effigy,supposed to re- present the Premier, and labelled The last landlord," was paraded over the grounds. After the comp e- tion of the work the assemblage was addressed y Mr. Corbett, M.P., and Mr. Redmond, M.P. The tatt' r said that the land movelllent had never had such a hold on the Iri-h people as it had at the prest nt moment, nor was their determination eve* so fixed to ubtain free land for a frte people, OUTRAGES. Shot* have been fired into the house of a builifl ram d Ryan,on the property ..ver which Mr. WiUinn Biedin, J.P., is airei-t, lieat- Ca.;ttlegar(ie. None of th- stmts took fffect on RNati. In the morning threatening notirev, it is sfat d, weie found posted Qt-outheuoorx of ;.Il th»-lxb urnrs on the property, warning them to uit Mr. Bredin's employment at the peril of their lives. Tile gate lodge of tha Marquis of Ely it Loftus Hall, in the southern part of county Wexford, was attacked by a mob, in consequence of his lordship having served writs on a number of his tenants. The lodge windows, both the glass and the frames, were smashed in with stones, and some of the furniture belonging to the keeper, a Mr. Cooke, was broken. At the Cork winter assizes Mr. Justice Fitzg. raid sentenced the eeven prisoners found guilty of having attacked the dwelling house of Bridget Lenane, at Scrahane, co. Keiry. Patrick Cronin, who fired a shot whijh injured a child of Lenane, was sentenced to 10 years' penal servitude, and the other six five years' penal servitude each. Burtholom-w Nolan, one of the latter, said he had a wife and eight ehi dren depending on him, and before God he piotested his innocence, saying he was not one of the party. His lordship said it was his duty to carry out the verdict of the jury. Two agrarian outrages have been committed in th' village of Caherdine, nsar Craughwell. A wid w who carries on a bucks',ery had her house partin ly nnroofed, and a goat belonging to her was skinned alive. Several agricultural implements belonging to a bailiff named Gibbons WT-re smashed, and a notice was posted on his door. A rick of hay belonging to a farmer at Shauganagh was burnt. A few days ago the hi use of a farmer, nallled Patrick Buckley, living at Lvradane, near Mallow, was visited by a party of men for the purpose of intimidating him against paying his rent, shots were fired and other alarming demonstra- tions made. Buckley's farm was to be sold next day. LANDLORD AND TENANT. The Dublin correspondent of the Times forwardsthe following facts, which, he observes, furnish a remaik- able illustration of the spirit in winch some of th' ten- ants are entering the Land Courts and acting towards the landlords. About 27 of the tenants on Lord Mount Galr. tt'. property at Uriimjford, co. Kilkenny, xt-rvtd oriyin tiog notice- to have judicial rents j fixed. His lord>hip ni^aged the services of Mr. Kidd, an experienced land valuator and also a prac- tical faimer, t" value their holdings. The va'u.nor went t" Uriingford for the purpose, and was met in the village by six of the tenant*, to whom he ex- plained the biet of his visit. They all perempt* rily reused to allow him to go upon the lands, aid told him not to attempt to do so. In consequence ot this refusal be did not deem it advisable to proceed any further in these ca-es, but proceeded to the farm of another tenant, who resides in the town- land of Tincashel, near Urlingf. rd. On his arrival I he was met by the tenant named Tobin, who also peremptorily refused to allow h^m to value the hold- i lng, and who made use of very abusive language to him. During the alteration three young men, be- lieved to be Tobin's sons, were leaning o'-er the half I door of his house, and one of them exclaitred, Let toe at him" while another informed 1\1". Kidd that "if ever he was caught in that neighbourhood again he would not get away with his life." Owing to the show of force which was made, Mr. Kidd concluded that it would have been n.,(, only most im- prudent, l-ut foolhardy to have persisted in going o\er Tobin's lands, and returned to Urlintford without having been able to value the lands. The consequence of this obstruction and intimidation is that Lord Mount Garrett is left wholly without any evidence to lay before the sub-commissioner*, the end which the tenants no doubt desired to attuin. Five men pleaded guiltv at the M inster assizes at Co,k on Thursday, to having participated in :ho Mitche'stown riots on tbe occasion d evictions on the Ucunte-s of Kingston's estare, and were sen- tenced to six months' impns< nir ent each, Judge Fitzg- ] :lld remarking he won d have given them penal serviti;d hut for the plea of gu; ty. At a meeting of tbe ^uard<ans of the South Dublin Union a circular was read from Cork, effing a resol.tion of the Cork board of gnav dians, earnestly requesting the Government to r. • lea-ie Mr. Painell and the "th..r suspects." Its adop- tion was moved and seconded, but the chairman (Mr. Caldbeck, J.P.) marked the circular" Read." halv- ing that it bad nothing to do with tbebusi.oci <J the uiuoa.

"Illustrious, Irishwomen," &c. CHAPTER XXVII. THE KITCHEN CONCLAVE. But the faithful Pat is not to be put off by his mistress's words. He has marked with con,idrr;¡ bk concern how ill the doctor has looked for the past: few days, and he pauses at the bedside,scratches the back of his ear in a puzzled manner, and again ventuies to say-- Bedftd, ma am it 'ud be just as well t' let me go for Docthor Sharpe. Shure he'* that fond av the masther, that he'd think nothin' av cbinin' over at wanst." "Oht never mind. Pat I" explains Kate. ali'tln j testily,your master will be all right in the mor- ilig." "I doubt it, ma'am," repliees Pat, steadily and «enteniously. He was overtired," continues Kate, wishing Pat would leave her, and—and—the sherry gave him a headache that's all." Well, ma'am, I'll stay in th' kitchen," says Pat, at length,retreating1 towards the door to Ka e'i intense relief, so that av yeh want me, nn'am, I'll be there for yeh quite handy." Thank you," replies Kate, but not in an espe- oially gracious tone. She is annoyed at Pat's per- li t'tig that her husband a ill. Pat rt-tirell to the kitchen, where be communi- cates his fears to Bridget and to Rose Doghe-tv. "Troth, it's quare av fh'njistbre^s not t'sind for Docthor Sharpe at wan"t," be says apprthensively, "t-hure anywan can see that th' masi her's v(-ry bHd. Ay. b dad. i-hure I've b. en watcbin' th' sick- ness in his face for these three days a-past." ■'An' why won't th' misthret-s send for Doc- bhor Sharpe?" inquires Bridget, who is sitting knifing an apparently interminably long, grey. worsted stocking. No one ever saw Bridget seated without the long grey stocking in progress, and no one ever saw the stocking anywhere except when Bridget produced it. •' Bedad I don't know," replies Pat, filling his short, black, cutty pipe, I did me best t' thry an' git her t' let me go, but th' nerra bit she'd listen t' raison • Bedad its wimmin that's quare." "Slime is." rejoins Bridget, meditatively. "Now there's Rose Dogherty there," she continues, au' the's about wan av th' quarest wimmin out." "Mind yer own busine-s ,"retorts Rose Dogherty, tartly, fnm the three-legged stool upon which she is seated by the fire, into which she is intently ?-zi"g and apparently unheeding the conversa- tion of her fellow servants. I, Don't ait our heads off, Rose Dogherty r" ex- -laim- Pat, as he turns and looks at her. Throi h, I'm begmnin't'think yeh have no heart at nil in yeh, or yeh'd be wid jeT poor misthress this minnit, thryin' av yeh cud uo anythin' for her." The misthres8 doesn't want me," she replies, sullenly. Bedad, yer not th' wan t, thry av she dol's, anyhow!' Pat walks unea-ily up and down the kitchen, the vision of his insensible master vividly before his mental vision. '•An' now, Pat agia," says Bridget, inarnly, as though she had not heard the fact from Pat before, an' d ye think th' masther is so very bad as all that ?" I know he is-God help him I" he exclaims, puffing away vigorously at his little black pipe. An' what s more, I know he'll be worse afore mornin' so I'm jist goin' t'stay in th' kitchen all D L he, for fear that th' misthress 'ud want me n' G d grant she may have th' sinse t' sind me off to,- Doethor Sharpe before anywan avuz is much oulder." Rose Dogherty has been taking in every word of the conversation, and her heart throbs with a great and bitter hate against Kate French. It mi st be borne in mind that Rose Dogherty honestly be- lieves that Kate would not be especially sorry were her husband to die. But were he to die I Were William French to be but as a memory to Rose Dogherty, she is almost tempted to say to herself that she would have to follow him to the great unknown land. Passion- blasted as she is, the woman can scarcely thi k coherently to-night, and, abruptly rising.-he leaves the kitchen, and enters the now deserted dining- ruom, where the lamp is dully flickering. I hope Rose is gone up t' the poor misthress," remarkes Pat in a compassionate tone, '• Rose is qnare, but she has a grand head-piece I" he con- tinues admiringly, "now av yeh war only t' see her helpin' the masther on a dispenttary day, bed .d it 'ud do yer heart good t' see her-the can bandage and sthrap up a broken head nearly as well as the masther himself." Och ay bedad !—it's Rose Dogherty can make herself u>eful," replies Bridi t without the faintest; inflection of a sneer in her v ce. for hone-t B, idget bdw gs to that stolid class incapable of harbour- ing anything so subtle or of understanding its purport. "but shure it's no wondher, forth' mis- thress s mother tuk a power av thrubble wid her; an' shure, Rose has a power av book larnin' Yes, Brir-get is right. Rose has had advantas es beyond her station in life, and she has imbibed ideas, which makes that station unspeakably irk- some to Her. If it be true that evil is but go d perverted, then indeed Rose Dogherty's education h <s much to answer for. She has read a great deal-a good deal for a woman in a better posi- tion in life-and a great deal for a woman in li r circumstances. But the coarse soil of her mil d has taken in nought but that which appeals to her senses. Passionate sensuous scenes and poetry are the kind her memory retains, and as she nsUe-siy pa^es up and down the parlour there occur to ht-r some verses she had read some where-ver, es wh.ch seemed to describe her own fate so itaitlingly, that although she had only read them over Once or twice they had become inde- libly imprinted upon the page of her memory. Almost mechanically she repeats them as she walks up and dowa Fatal the time I rais'd mine eyes To eyes whose light hath blasted, Yet ere I could turn from their glance away Life had with gazing wasted. Bitter the thought that years may pass, Yet thus it must be ever, To look on thy form, to hear thy voice, But nearer, never, never. Rose Dogherty sits down presently, in th ? trm-chair in which William French had been sitting, and she buries her face in her hands. What if Pat's apprehensions turned out to be true, and that the doctor were really ill! She had noticfd how hagarard and worn he had been looking, even before the had risked telling him the fatal news which seems to have so completely upset him. Rose is quite aWáfe of the risks her master is running at present, in attending patients down with the low. treacherous fever which is so prevalent in the neighbourhood. The woman's heart quails. This one great, overmastering, hopeless, passionata love is the lever of her life. William French is the lun around which the whole sphere of her existence revolves, and she feels that if anything were to happen him the light must go out of her life. But he cannot die God cannot be so utterly cruel as to take him. she says to herself with all the wtnt of logic of a heart-wrung woman. And this wife of his," she thinks with an utter loathing and hatred of Kate, she is willing to let him die, that she may be again free, and for what?" Rose Dogherty does not believe Kate's assertion that sbe means to tell her husband in the morning, of her meeting with Charles Felton. That she will tell him some kind of a story Rose has no manner of doubt, but that she will tell him the true version, the does not for one moment believe. Upon the table lie the telegram and the yellow envelope in which it had been enclosed. Rose Dogberty takes up the former and reads it over again. ló She's FO cunnin' she says-referring to Kate- as she aits with the telegram in her h»nd, -1 that there's no knowin' but that she might desth oy this so I won't give her the chance 111 take good care av tbat r' Rose Dogh. rty folds up the telegram, replaces it in the envelcpe, and puts it into her pocket. If William French gets well again-Nnd Rose Dig- herty Sl ea no rtason why he should not—she is perfectly well aware that there may be explana- tions of such a nature as peihaps to involve her leaving the house. But be she far fiom him, or be me near him, she determines to have some hold upon him. She cannot reason about things at present; but she feeU that this telgram may pos- sibly be a link in the chain of evidence which she mans to produce sooner or later against Kate. She hears Kate moving about overhead, Met presently Ros,' gives a. stait at¡ the sound of a heavy stealthy footstep in the hall. CHAPTER XXVIII. LIES. She is in such a state of nervous excitement, that Rose Dogherry almost screams as sht, listens to the stealthy footfall; and is angry with herself the next minute for feeling so, when she recognises it to be that of Pat. Nearer and nearer he comes, and at length putl his head in at the half open door of the parlour. Oh an' is it here yeh are, Rose 7" he exclaims in a loud whisper, "Shure me, an' Bredgit thought yeh war wid the poor misthress." The poor misthress I" she retorts mockingly, "it's much she wants yeh pity Shure, av she cared a bit about the masther she'd sind yeh off at wanst for Docthor Sharpe." Whisht now! whisht I tell yeh," exclaims Pat, warningly, and in thn same tone as before, don't be talkin' foolishness, Rose. Throth it's ill the like av such talk becomes a cl, ver woman like you." he continues, with insidious flattery. "Shure," he adds, unknowing how he is adding fuel to the flame already smouldering in her breast, "shure, I offen an' offen heard th' masther say yeh war as good a docther nearly as he was himself. Rose Dogherty's heart flutters foolishly as she listens to Pat's words. So, Rose agra," he continues, following up his advantage, I'm listenin' t' the masther moanin', we can hear him plain in th' kitchen,an' I was just goin' up t' listen and thry if maybe th' misthress 'ud let me go for Docthor Sharpe. But you know such a power, Rose, that maybe you'd go up instead av me." For a minute Rose Dogherty hesitates consider- ing her last interview with Kate, she does not care to encounter her again unless it be absolutely necessary to do so. Can't yeh go up yerself, Pat ? she suggegta. "I would.Rose.wid all th' veins av me heartl" he exclaims earnestly, "but I'm afeard th' misthress might think me too throuble-ome. An' shure it's more natural-like an' right," he adds, with that curious and inna'e sens-ot the proprieties which is such an integral part of the Irish peasant nature, for jou, a woman, to go up an' spaik t' the mis- thress." I hear her walkin' about th' room," says Rose, but without rMng from her chair." "So do 11 will yeh go up. Rose ?"he asks.pertina- ciously, sticking to his point in a manner worthy of a woman. "I don't like t' go, Pat." Rose admits being brought to bay. "Arrah, why thin?" he exclaims, in some cm- siderable amazement, and no small amount of angry impatience in his voice, which he has, un- conf-oiously. raised. Well," she replies, somewhat reluctantly th' misthress an' me had a soart av a row this evenin', an' I don't want t' go near her." An' now, Rose, alannah machree," he says, per- suasively "an' d'ye think it's right t' be thn king 'av such foolish thirgs whin there's wan sick? Throth, an' it's not th' poor masther himself that ud let a few words stan' in th' way av doin' what 'was th right thing t' do. Arrah shure all mis- thrc-ssei; an' their servints does have the few wor "s now an' agin, an' is niver th' worse friends for it afcher all. So go up, Rose, acusbla, an' jist see how th' masther is gettin' on an' thry an' get the mis- thress t' let me go off for Docthor Sharpe." Why, Pat I" she exclaims, why don't yeh go off for Docthor Sharpe without askin' th' misthrees t lave at all ?" I don't like t' do it," he replies, diffidently. "Bedad thin she says, decidedly, "av I war in yer place I'd go What is it now, Pat, that yeh thiok is the ma ther wid th' masther ?" Well, Rose," he replies, gravely, and shaking his closely shorn rei head, I'm afe-rd it's tlil faver." Rose's heart Rinks at thus having her suspicious corroborated. Yer in airnest, Pat ?" God's thruth, I'm tellin' yeh, Rose 1" he ex- claims earnestly." Shure whin I be dbrivin' along wid th' masther sometimes he does tell me the way t' know av anywan is down or goin' t' be down wid this onlucky faver that's goin'. An' it was only Ia-<t Sunday tint I sed t' him that he ought t' take care av himself, for he wasn't look in' well an' shure whin I seen him standin' at the gate thii mornin', I seen th' sickness in his face." The misthress flays he's talking non-ensc bekase he tuk too much wine," remarks Rose. Arrah Hould yer whist, woman exclaims Pat, indignantly. "Is it th' masther t'make a baste av himself wid th' dhiink? God forbid! Shure that 'ud be th' black day for uz all av he'd do th'like But that just shews that he's worse nor I thought he was," he continues in a lowered and more concerned tone, for th' masther must have felt very low whin he tuk a lot av wine 01 anythin' else t' keep him up." Rose glances quickly at Pat, and she feels the red scar on her forehead throbbing with her emotion. Whilst he is speaking she has taken coun,el with herself, and now says, as though haviogbeen won over by his words- "Pat, I'll go upstairs an' thry an' get th' mis. tbress t' let yeh go for th' docrhor for th' masthtf." "Do, Rose, do, alannah," he rejoins heartily, "an' 1 11 go down t' th' kitchen an' wait fur yeb th-re." Pat is as good as his word. Would that we could say as much for Rose D< gherty. Pat retreats tc th- kitchen, recounts to Bridget with much sa' isfac- tion the result of his blandishments upon Rose, and lights a comforting and very ill-smelling pipe in the meantime ending Rose's return. Rose Dogherty stealthily advances up the stain and listens at William French's door. She heart him faintly moani, g, and ^he also hears the sound of Kate s voice softly talking to him in a soothing tone. Wi h her ear to the keyhole she listens anxiously and eagerly, and as she does so she hears William French exclaims incoherently Fe'ton—in Dundenny Churchyard—with Kate, and Kate—kissed Felton—and Felton—in Dun- denny Churchyard-and Felton ki.-sed Kate- anri-" But Rose Dogherty has heard enough. She knows from the very tone of his vr.ice that YVilHam French is delirous, and, with difficulty repressing the sob that will rise in her throat and choke her. she retreats to the top stair, and sits down help- lessly. And again Rose Dogherty takes her resolvo, quickly, unhesitatingly, and has come to a conclu. sion in her own mind. She descends the stairs as quickly and as stealthily as she had ascended them. But her limbs are trembling, and her face is ashen-hued as she makes her appearance again in the ki chen, and sayp- Pat, I was spaikin' th' misthress," she looks behind her furtively, ss she speaks, as if fearful of seeing Kate's accusing face. as' the masther s very bad. she continues, feeling that that assertion at least i^ trne, "an' sho SSTS yer t go for th' doctor-for Doctbor Sharpe, at wanst. But yer not t'make a bit av noise in bringin' round th' mare," Rose adds cautiously, "forth' masthtr's in that soart av a state that everything seems t' annoy him." "I understand all about it, Rose," returns Pat with alacrity, as he dons his cap, aud hastrly leaves the ki chen. It is a good long drive,and not an especially plea- sant one either, upon this bleak October night, But Pat does not, minj it. Love for h's kind, good mas'er tempers the inclemency of the wea her to him, and he soon arrives at. Doctor Sharpe's, and when the stolid, but good-hearted practitioner puts his nightcapped head out of the window, and demands the disturber's business, he ex- claims- It's mp, sir. I'm Docthor Frinch's Pat, sir. Shure yeh know me Docthor Frinch is very bad, sir, an' th' misthress sint me for yeh Doctor Sharpe soon joins Pat. The latter (ells what he knows about his master's symptoms, and Doctor Sharpe says- "I cautioned him the other day, Pat. I saw he was ill then but he only laughed at me." Kate French is unfeignedly surprised when Doctor Sharpe unceremoniously walks into the room to her. She is more than surprised, she is ao- tually annoyed, at Pat having—as she believes- taken the matter into his own hands. Doctor Sharpe advances to the bed where lies William French. He makes a minute in- v, stigatioii of his patient, and then, turning to Kate, be tn<js—■ "Mrs. French, your husband has been having! a considerable amount of stimulant, has he not ?" 9 Kate's h,-art quails. She will not tell of Wil- linm's disgrace—as it seems to her-and she answers steadily— I Done whatever. My husband never induJgf s in anything of the kind." (To be continued.) Thera are 10.000 dentists in this country, and yet lIlothers will pull the teeth of their infants with a string tied to a door latch. A Detroit man was astonished the other day to find that the telephone could taik French. He said be thought it was an American invention..
DESTRUCTIVE TYPHOON. REPORTED LOSS OF 3,000 LI-VFS. A;iv;ces received on Thursday at Plymouth give tome particulars of a destructive typho n, which vj.-ited Haiphong and Tallee on October 8, causing foe.tt d^stiu"tion and loss of life. The wind blew with tremendous violence, and the heavy sea flOl (ied the uhoe of the surrounding country. In Taliee t !<-re were six feet of water in the houses three and f..ur miles distant from the seashore. The current was so strong that it swept away the entire town, the number of persons drowned being esti- mated at over 3.000. The paddy-fields throughout the district have been completely ruined. A large number of boats which convey the lice from the interior of the country to Haiphong have been sunk, and others have had their cargoes damaged.
RISING IN ALGERIA. Despatches received in Paris from Oran state that, a numerically large force of rebels has rallied round the Cheiif Mohammed El Arbi, who, accord ing to the Tanj>s' correspondent at Oran, was pro- claimed Sultan during the summer by the three Mara- bouts, Bou Amema, Si Sliman and Si Kactdour. This personage is said to enjoy as much respect in the south as the Sultan of Morocco himself. He is a man of 70 years of age, but still robust and an excellent horseman. The present situation in the south of the Province of Oran may be summed np in the wordii of a superior officer of note in the French army After a two months'campaign in the south we are at the mercy of events which give quite another aspect to the question, and compel us, with or against our will, to undertake further military operations."
ARABI BEY. An Arab journal publishes an account of an inter- view which Sir William Gregory is said to have had with Arabi Bey in Cairo. Arabi said, it answer to questions, that he would always obey tLe Egyp- tian Government as long as that Government con- served Egyptian interests. The population now understood their interests, and could distinguish between those who did them good and those who served thom ill. The forthcoming Chamber of Notables would have full Constitutional powers. With reference to the internal administration, in- cluding the Government railway, the Domainal pro- petty, and the Daira Sanieh, A'abi Bey attacked the capabilities of the European functionaries. He con- sidered that the population liked him because he defended their interests. He did not wish, however, to govern Egypt, for he was only a general in the Egyptian army looking after Egyptian interests. Egypt w(,uld not, he believed, accept a British Pro- tectorate similar to that of Turkey, but wou d acc- pt an alliance resembling that between Germany and Austria.
ROYAL VISIT TO EALING. Prince Leopold (Duke of Altany), accompanied by Prince and Princess Christian, on Saturday visited the town of Ealing, the occasion of the Royal visit beintz the laying of the foundation stone of the new buildings of the Princess Helena College, at Eaton Rise, an in.-titution whose aim is to educate and train for governesses the orphan daughters of officers in the army and navy, the clergy, and public servants. The proceedings took place in a covered tent close to the new building, and the weather was exceedingly unpropitious, the rain and th, wind greatly marring the pleasure which the visi- tors would otherwise have enjoyed. The Royal party was leceived with the customary honours, and the Ealing Local Board presented an address of wel- come to Prince Leopold, tendering him thanks for his gracious kindness in honouring the neigh- bourhood with his presence, and recognising in the vi-it a db-ire on the part of the Prince to follow the example of the Queen and the late Prince Consort, who had always manifested a warm in- terest in all matters connected with arts and sciences and the moral and intellectual welfare of the nation, and congratulating him on his approaching marriage. In replying to this address Prince Leopold said that be had no doubt the college would have received the hearty support of the Prince Consort, "and that in end. avouring to maintain the tradi- tions which he ha- handed down to them, English- men are most likely to advance the true interests of the nation to which they belong." — After an explanation of the history and futme purposes of the Princess Helena College, Lord George Hamilton, on behalf of the college authorities, thanked Prince Leopold for his services, in reply to which his Royal Highness expressed his warmest wishes for the future prosperity of the institution, and confessed tj the strong and earnest hope that his sister may have the satisfaction which she had so well earned that the time ami thought which she and others had given to the establishment of this work had not been ex- pended in vain. Notwithstanding the numerous provisions which happily existed in this country to meet the various educational requiiements, the Princess Helena College was so framed as to supply needs which were not met by any existing establish- ment. So long as the physical capacity of the pupils for instruction was not overtaxed, they might all feel sure that the amount of knowledge which was to be imparled to them would bear abundant fruit- if not in the practical use to which such knowledge could be applied, at any rate in the increased inte e.t which it would give them in the world in which they lived,and in the society of men and women equally instructed with themselves. In con- clusion, Prince Leopold commended the cause of the Princess Helena College to all those by whom any op- portunity for befriending a good and true cause was welcomed as a me^ns of helping and forwarding the true interests and welfare of the nati n at large. —Shortly after the conclusion of the Prince'saddresa the Royal party took their departure.
A WORKHOUSE LIBEL SCANDAL. TU fore the Queen's Bench Division, sitting at the London Guildhall, has be^n tried the action of Mais v. Forbes, which lasted five days. and arose out of quarrels which had taken place between the officials employed in the workhouse establishment of the parish of St. Leonard, Shoreditch. The action was brought by the late matron against the resident medical officer, Dr. Forbes. and the alleged libel was contained in a written statement by the defendant, laid before the board of guardians, at their request, in January, 1880. The general effect of the document was to impute conduct to the plaintiff subversive of the discipline of the institution. The defendant pleaded privilege and justification. In her evidence Mrs. Jane Mais, the plaintiff, said she was a married woman, and had been separated from her husband, but kept the fact concealed. Sne believed the defendant was a single man. One night they went on a visit to someone else in the workhouse, and on their return to the intinnary they had to pass through a long corridor which had doors at each end, which were locked. Whilst there Dr. Forbes took one of her hands and attempted to behave in- decently with it. She pushed him back, but he made a further attack upon her, and she rattled the door and said that she would scream and fetch the night nurse. He then let her go, and next morning induced her to overlook the matter, saying he had had too much whisky. At length Dr. Forbes made little complaints which gave rise to reports and counter reports, and she told the guar- dians, but no inquiry was held. Afterwards she got a letter from the secretary of the Local Govern- ment Board, requesting her to resign, and she left the infirmary. She was then elected as matron at We-t- bury workhouse, but was forced to leave owing to what Dr. Forbes said of her. All his allegations were un- true. Other witnesses for the plaintiff gave evidence as to her general good behaviour whilst at the work- house.—pr. Forbes, the defendant, was then called, and den ed emphatically all the allegatii ns of the plaintiff. He was always ready and willing to have a Local Government Board inquiry, because he ki ew theie could not be any disgraceful disclosures a out himself. He considered that he was ob- s-ti uctcd by the plaintiff in carrying out his duties with regard to the efficiency of the workhouse in- firmary. There was not the least pretence for say. ing that he was too familiar with Mrs. Stephen- SO/l. Several witnesses deposed to the frequently boisterous behaviour of Mrs. Mais, tbe plaintiff. A nurse said the plaintiff sometimes did not visit the wards for a week or a fortnight at a time. She was often in want of sufficient linen for the sick patients. Dr. Stephens came round with the plaintiff veiy often arm-in-arm. Her conduct wasolten excited. The plaintiff's conduct was the talk of the iufirmary.- Another nurse said that on one occasion at 6 in the morning she saw the plaintiff drunk, being assisted to her bedroom by a couple of nurses.—1The plaintiff, re- called, denied several statements that had been made against her, and especially the denied that she had ever neglected her duties in the infirmary. She had never been escorted to her room by two servants and vomited on the way.—In his summing up, the judge re- marked upon the disagreeable and painful nature of the case. The principal question here was not whether the statements made were true, but whether they were privileged. If the letter written by Dr. Forbes w as written honestly, then the defendant would be ei it.tied to the verdict,but if it were written maliciously then the plaintiff' should have the verdict, and with such damages as would, 'ar money could, give c mipen a ion for the injury which had flowed t o the from the defendant s letter.—The jury were 1 eked up for tWCl hours and a-quarter, but were unable to agree; and were discharged.

FIRES IN THEATRES. Consequent upon the terrible disaster at Vipnna Superintendent Tozer. the head of the Birming- ham Fire Brigade, has made a special ir.sj e< tion of the local theatres and concert halls. He consi Ura t nit the proprietors have taken reasonable pre- cauti n to furnish ample provision for the public leav- ing the theatres in an orderly manner, but in the evriit of a panic in any of the places of amusement many lives would be lost, and nothing could be done in the present buildings that would materially reduce the risk. Amongst other precautions he strongly re- commends that there should be telephonic communi- cation withvthe central lire stations. A suggestion has been brought before the Metropolitan Board of Works that the act drop curtains of every theatre in London should be chemically prepared to resist the action of fire.
CANADIAN INDEPENDENCE. At the convention of Liberal-Conservatives held iu Toronto on the 23rd nit., the following resolution, among others, was unanimously adopted by the 1,400 delegates present, and is interesting in connection with the comments that have recently been made upon the subject. Resolved That this convention desires before dissolving to express its abiding convic- tion that it isof the utmost importance to the Dominion that its connection with Great Britain be maintained, and its belief that the advocates of independence, with its consequent annexation to the neighbouring States, represent merely an insignificant minority." According to present arrangements, says the Stan- dard the Marquis of Lorne will remain in Canada for another three years, as his 10ldsbip has made known h's desire to complete his full term as Governor- General, unless recalled to England to take up some Other appointment.
A TOWN LIGHTED BY ELECTRICITY. Godalming, Surrey, has the honour of being the first town the streets of which are lighted solely by electricity. The preparations have been in hand for some time, and were succeaofutly tested on Thursday night. There are several novelties in the arrangements which renders the experiment worthy of a brief de- scription. In the first place the electricity is generated principally by water power, two poucelet water wheels at the Westbroûk Mills of Messrs. R. and J. Pulman, leather dressers, being employed. So sluggish, how- ever, has the stream become owing to the rise of the river and the large quantity of back water, that it has been found necessary to employ a steam-engine as an auxiliary to the water power. The relative proportion of the two sources of power thus brought into operation may be estimated from the faet that, whereas to generate the quantity of electricity re- qu)red, the dynamo-machine must make 840 revolu- tions per minute, the river in its present flooded state only gives power enough to cause 700 revolu- tions per minute. One of Messrs. Siemens Brothers generators is used-an alternate current dynamo- machine with an exciter absorbing about 10-horse power. This machine supplies seven differential arc lamps, three in Westbrook Mills and four in the main street of the town, and about 40 of Swan's incandescent lamps. One of the arc lights has an opalescent shade, but the others are enclosed in square lanterns of clear glass, provided with reflectors, and are placed on iron posts 22ft. high, and have an illuminating power equal to 300 candles. The Swan lamps, about 80 of which of 15 candle power are in the smaller streets, are fixed in the ordinary gas lamp-posts the current is conducted by bare copper wire attached by insulators to poles like overhead telegraph wires, and no direct return wire is employed. Altogether about five miles of wire are used for the two sy-tems of lighting. The work has been carried "ut by Alessrs. Calder and Barret, electrical engineers. Tin's firm will exhibit, at the Crystal Palace Electri- cal Exhibition, a turbine, to be worked in this ca-e by water supplied from the towers, that is to drive a dynamo-machine, which will alternately supply current for lighting and for the transmission of power. They are also about to carry out an experi- ment with arc and Swan lights for the lighting of the library and theatre of the Charterhouse Schools near Godalming, and the road in front of the schools. One result of the adoption of the electric light has been the reduction of the price of gas at Godalming from 5a. 4d. to 4s. lOd. per thousand.
LAND LAW REFORM. A lecture on the subject of the Land Laws has been delivered at Lower Norwood by the Marquis of Bland- ford,in connection with the L 'cat Liberal Association. The noble lord said that land reform had been persis- tently refused, because there had not been a clear exprel,sion of opinion by the people at the polls as to the reforms which they required. It had been the business of the Conservative party to treat all the institutions of the country as perfect, while there was- a tendency on the part of extreme Radicals to go be-, yond the reforms necessary in their own life-time, and to undertake that which they might very well leave to their descendants. He held that in making a reform they should not ignore existing r ghts, nor inflict an injury on one class of the people to benefit another. The cheap and easy transfer of land ought to be regarded as an important feature of land reform. It would be a great blessing for the cul- tivator to be the owner, for where that was the case there was the greatest amount of happiness and the greatest security for the institutions of the country. There ought to be no impediment to the full effect of the law of supply and demand, so thit the system of pea-ant ownership and the proprietary system might go side by side. It was very doubtful if it were possible or desirable that the land of the country should be the property of the State. He had been dis- appointed with the proposition of the Farmers' Alliance, who wished to establish a joint ownership, for which there was no ground in England. The noble lord condemned the law of entail, but was in favour of settlements. He did not advocate com- pulsory distribution of property, but the present powers of testamentary disposal were extravagant .Some check should be put upon them. He gave the heads of what he would propose as the provisions of a Land Bill for England. He would change, in favour of the tenant, the presumption of law as to the owner- ship of an improvement; he would give the tenant perfect freedom to carry out at his own risk any im- provement rigidly consistent with the purpose for which the holding was let to him; when a tenancy was determined each side should have the improve- ments valued, a Government valuator or a county board being referee; if the landlord declined to buy the improvements the tenant should be at liberty to tell them at the valuation of the Government officer, and the landlord should then forfeit the power to evict or raise the rent of the holding for a fixed period of years or until such time as he had liquidated the equitable claim which the new tenant bad purchased from the former occupier. A carefully drawn schedule of what should be considered tenants' improvements should be inserted in the bill. His lordship was opposed to free sale, and held that the goodwill would under the free sale system eat into the fee. He would not have an agricultural lease longer than 25 vears, nor an urban lease longer than 50 years, and in both cases a tenant's improvements should be his own property. In a letter to the Suffolk Chamber of Agriculture, Lord Stradbroke designates the Farmers' Alliance Bill as an unnecessary measure, which, if passed, will only have the effect of putting large sums of money in to the hands of the legal profession, the principal object of the bill being to destroy and prevent freedom of contract. Lord Waveney also writes that, generally speaking,in landlords and tenants in England are quite competent to settle their owa affairs.
Mr. B. T. Williams, M P., has accepted a county- court judgeship. This creates a vacancy for the Car- marthen district of boroughs. A Madrid correspondent telegraphs that consider- able surprise and irritation have been caused by the difficulties which the Spanish residents in Oran meet with from the French authorities who are investigat- ing the Saida claims. The Spanish Government, it is said, will abandon the claims altogether rather than submit to any departure from the arrangement made with the Ferry Cabinet. An official report she <vs that a considerable diminu- tion in crime has taken place in Italy during the first nine months of the present year, as compared with the corresponding period of 1880. Homicides sbewed a falling off of 210 cases, murderous assaults of 78, highway robberies of 569, assaults with violence of 47, and robberies and petty larceny offencea of nc teaa than 20,494.

An ethereal maiden, named Maud, Was suspected of being a fraud Scarce a crumb was she able To eat at the table- But in the back pantry 0 Maud A writer of the gentler sex says that a womanly woman never gets jammed, crowded or pushed," and add, I am neither young nor pretty." This explains it. No man cares to squeeze a woman who is neither young nor pretty. Let us have the ex- perience of some of the young and pretty ones. An Englishman and a Welshman disputed as to whose country was the best to live in. Said the Welsh- man, "There is such noble housekeeping in Wales that I have known above a dozen cooks to be employed at one wedding dinner." "Ay," replied the Englishman, ''that was because every man toasted his own cheese." Eight is said to be the greatest number, because it is the potent 8; nine most gracious and complacent, for it will always be 9; four should have been assigned precedence in numeration, because it will be 4 when all the others are assigned their proper places. The original assignment was doubtless made by a raffle, and one 1, which was scarcely fair,as two made a good throw 2, but was betrayed by the three, 'f've are correct. This left the whole arrangement at sixes and sevens, and naught came out of it. It is not always that the lawyer gets the best of it in the examination of a witness. When the tables are turned upon him it seems allowable to indulge in an audible smile. Recently, in one of the interior counties of New Yoik, the district attorney, a clever lawyer, was cross examining a witness and endeavour- ing to throw discredit upon his testimony.The district attorney asked, "Were you ever arrested ?' "Yes." "What for?" "Assault and battery, and paid my fine." This was not bad enough. Sometime-) good men will pay a fine for the privilege of knocking down a blackguard, and therefore Mr. Attorney went on groping in the dark. Were you ever in prison ?" No-yes. Come to think, I was." Then, with the light of expectation breaking all over his expansive countenance, Mr. Attorney chuckles, "Oh you were in prison, were you ? Where were you in prison, lir?' At Andersonville. Was taken prisoner by the rebels I" Amidst a storm of applause, the cheers of the multitude, and the musketry-like rattle of hob- nailed boots, the legal gentleman ceased to pester the ex-warrior. According to Lord Camden, sitting in the stocks was by no means a pleasant affair. When a learned serjeant-in the course of an action against a magis- trate for, as it was alleged, illegally placing the plain- tiff in the stocks-observed that "everybody knew the stock) was no punishment at all," Lord Camden, who presided at the trial, leaning across the bench,said in a half-whisper, "Brother, have you ever been in the stocks?" "Never, my lord," replied the serjeant. "Then I have," said his lordship, "and I assure you, brother, it is no such trifle as you represent," Lord^ Camden, as a well-known story tells us, when on a visit to Lord Dacre at his place in Essex, was out walking with a friend,and sat down for his own amuse- ment in the parish stocks,into which he was fastened, to "pee what it was like." His friend, being absent in mind, strolled away with a book, and returned home, forgetting Lord Camden. It was some time before the judge was released a countryman who passed by merely saying, in reply to a request for assistance, "No, no, old gentleman you was not set there for nothing." The annals of bibliography afford many examples of the delirious extent to which book fancying can go. In May, 1812, the library of the Duke of Roxborough was sold. The collection contained a copy of Boccaccio, published at Venice in 1471. Among the distinguished company^ which attended the sUe, were the Duke of Devonshire, Earl Spencer and the Duke of Marl- borough, then Marquis of Blandford. The bid stood at 500 guineas. A thousand guineas," said Earl Spen- cer. "And ten," added the Marquis. You might have heard a pin drop. All eyes were bent on the bidders. Now they talked apart, now ate a biscuit, but without the least thought of yielding one to another. The contest proceeded until the Marquis said, Two thousand pounds." Then Earl Spencer bethought him of waste of powder, when Lord Althorp came to his side as if to bring his fatber a fresh lance to renew the fight. Father and son whispered together, and Earl Spencar exclaimed, Two thousand two hundred and fifty pounds I An electric shot went through the a-sembly. And ten," quietly added the Marquis. There ended the strife. The sp»ctators stood dumb when the liammer fell. The stroke of its fall sounded on the farthest shores of I- aly. The tap of that hammer w»s heard in the libraries at Rome, Milan, and Venice. Boccaccio stiired in his sleep of hundreds of years, and M. Van Praet groped in vain among the royal alcoves in Paris, to detect a copy of the famed Valdarfer Boccaccio. After the desposition of King Brummell, dandyism is sa.id to have made ito last and bravest stand in the 10th Hussars, which in H32 was quartered in Dub- lin. The young warriors made themselves famous by Heir exclusiveness, their puppyism, and their affected sublime horror of the Irish barbarians. The following illustrates their disregard for the people, high and low, with whom they were placed. Lord E. F a captain in the regiment, sauntered one day into the Royal Arcade, Dublin. After looking about him he walked into a glover's shop and asked to see some gloves. Several parcels were shewn to Rim, and he selected a pair. While trying them on, he inquired of the woman behind the counter what was to pay. Two and ninepence, sir." "Two and ninepence?" he exclaimed lifting up his eyebrows; "how much is two and nine- pence?" "Three shillings all but threepence," she replied, smiling. Aw," he said, three shillings I see." He took out his purse and placed three shillings on the counter. The sbopwoman opened the till drawer,took from it three penny pieces folded them in a bit of paper, and handed them to the officer. Your change, sir." "My change, oh! aw! yeas very good I" He went on fitting his gloves. "Pray, have you a porter?" "There is a porter in the Arcade, Shall I call him, Sir ?" Ob, thank you; too much trouble, ? I'm sure—aw!" "No trouble at all, sir." The old lady went to the door and beckoned to someone in the distance. A man in a faded blue end yellow livery entered the shop. Here's the porter, sir," said the old lady. Oh, ah, thanks, I'm sure," rejoined the officer. "My man," turning to the farcadian official, do you know the Porlobello Barracks?" "Portobello, sir? Sure, an' it's meself that does. Haven't I a cousin in No. 5 troop of the 10th Hussars ?" The officer, hand- ing a card to him, pointed to the pence on the counter, and said, Take that luggage to my servant at this address, and here's half-a-crown for your trouble." Never despise a small gift. The man who bestows but one kind word should be treated as tenderly as the individual who gives you the small-pox. In one of his letters Charles Dickens describes a groom whom he had,and who forcibly recalls SamWel- ler. On one occasion the grcom said to his master, I vent to the club this mornin', sir. There vorn't no letters, sir." "Very good, Topping." How's missis, sir?" "Pretty well, Topping." "Glad to hear it, sir. My missis ain't very well, sir." "No?" "No, sir, she's a goin', sir, to have a hincrease very soon, and it makes her rather nervous, sir; and ven a young voman get's at all down in sich a time, sir, she goes down werry deep, sir." To this sentimen: I replied affirmatively and then, he adds, as he stirs the fire (as if he were thinking out aloud), "Wot a. mystery it is What a go is natur The Man Who "Pushed Things."—The man who worked with a wheelbarrow. A citizen of Detroit entered a Michigan avenue grocery the other day and said he wanted a private word with the proprietor. When they had retired to the desk he began I want to make confession and reparation. Do you remember my buying sugar here two or three days go?" "Ido." Well, in paying for it I worked off a counterfeit quarter on the clerk. It was a mean trick, and I came to tender you good money." "Oh. don't mention it," replied the grocer. "But I want to make it right." "It's all right-all right. We knew who passed the quarter on us, and that afternoon when your wife sent down a dollar bill and wanted a can of sardines I gave her that bad quarter with her change.
