i BRUTAL MURDER IN LONDON. Mr. Baxter, the East Middlesex coroner, held an [Inquiry at the London Hoipit.nl, Whitechapel, touching the death of Emma Elizabeth Smith, aged t5 years, a widow, lately living in Georgo Street, Spitalfields, who is alleged to have died from inju- ries received at the hand* of some persona unknown, who brutally assaulted her when returning home along the Whitechapel Rond on Bank Holiday tiighb. Mary Russell, of 18, George Street, stated that that addroaa was a common lodging-houio, and the deceased had been a lodger there for some month*. Witness acted as deputy. When she returned homo one night she tolll wfbnesa that she had been thrown out of a window. When she had had drink the deceased acted like a mad woman. On Bank Holiday the deceased left the house in the evening, apparently in gOry) health. She returned home between four and live o'clock the next morning severely injured, and she said she had been shock- ingly treated by some men. Tho witness I¡ook her at onctJ to t.ho hospital. Deceased -ftirbhoi1 suid that she was coming ntonjr Osborne Street, White chattel, when she was sob upon and her money taken from her. On bhe way fib the hospital deceased pointed out the apot, and said she did not know the men, nor oouid 8ho describe them. Witness believed that the statements made by the deceased were to be relied upon. By the Coroner Deceased had often come home wit,it 4tok eyus thnb meti had given her. She WM nob so drullklLi M<tb to know What she did. Mr. George Haslip, house-surgeon, deposed that deceased was admitted suffering from severe inja. ries. She had been drinking, but was not intoxi- cated.. Slio had a very serious rupture of a rocent datoe, and also somo bruises on her head. The right car was lorn and bleeding. She will witness that at lialf-pasb one that morning she was goitig by Whibech.tpct Church when she saw borne men coming. Slie crossed tho road to get oub of their way, but they followed her. They assaulted her, robbed her of all the money she had. and then commenced to outrage her. She could not say if they used a knife. She coald uot describe them, except thab one looked about 19. After her admis. sion she slowly asank, and died at nine o'clock on Wednesday morning. Tho deceased stated that ;he had nob seen any of her friends for ten years. The Coroner satd that from the medical evidence it was clear that'the wouian had been barbarously murdered. Such a dastardly assault he had never heard of, and it was impossible too imagine a more I-ratat case. The jury returned a verdict of wilful murder gainst soino person or persons unknown.
.LAID 0 N A MANCH ESTER CLUB FORTT-VIVB ARRESTS. Au organised raid has been made by a body of fifty police at bhe York Club, .itiuatell in Cheetham, Manchester. For some time past complaints have beon made to the police that gambling was carried on in the club, which is situated in the centro of the Jewish community, and was largely used by Jews. Detective Inspector Caminada having ob- tained a warrant from the stipendiary to enter the place, surrounded the building shortly after mid- night by constables, aud took possession of the dub. A large company of members and servants of the club were found within, and greafe excite- ment. was caused by the advent of the officers. Camittada produced his authority, and all once took means to prevent the escape of anyone No attempt was made to reeiist the officers, and, find- ing the place surrounded, none of the company made any serious attempt to escape. Everyone in the building was placed under arrest, including officials and servants. Altogether there wero thirty-eight men and seven women made prisoners, and they were all taken to bhe Town Hall, such as cartid to pay for tho luxury going In cabs, whilst a portion of the force remained iu possession of the club premises. At tbeftme of the entry of the officers some of the prisoners were playing gartios of cards. They were found to be nearly all Jews. The women were relempe(lon their OWn recognisances after their names had been taken. The members wero also allowed ah liberty, after a short deten- tion, on racogui.-ances to appear at the police court. Members of the committee and honorary officials wore required to find sureties, and thb secretary, Thinnaa SliviJtb, and the steward David Laz.»nis, were detained in custody. A considerable number of card tables were found in the club, and them was a drinking bar, billiard room, smoke rooms, and other "aofommodatirtn for a large number of members. The club has been in existence for several years, and had a largo membership.
THE LISCAHANE MURDER. SENTEXCH Or DEATH. At Wlcklow Asaizea the trial was resume of James Kirby for the murder of Patrick Quirke, at Liscahane, on the 8th November last. Several witnesses were examined for the defence in support ef an alibi, and Mr. Dunbar Barton addressed the jury on behalf of the defence, submitting that t)to alibi had been sustained and that the evidence in support of the Crown had broken down, and w« insufficient for any jury to reburn a verdict of "Guitty" upon it. The prisoner was the wrong man. Mr. Justice O'Brien, in summing up the cafo, occupied over five hours and a half. The jury were in consultation three hours and a quarter, and came into court four times to ask question-. Mrs. Quirke, being recalled and cross-examined l.v the judge, swore to knowing the prisoner, thou^li -he had previously refused bo admit it).—The jury then returned a verdict of Wilful murder," and the prisoner was sentenced to death, on the7i.ti May. He was removed protesting his innocence.

'¡' 7 THE LOTTERIES ACT. At the Sessions House, Westminster, before Mr. Edlin, Q.C., and a full bench of Middlesex magis- trates, George Ive Spalding appealed against a oon*'iction of Mr. Bridge, at, the Bow StreebPolice Court, of one month's hard labour, for unlawfully publishing a scheme for tho sale of chances in tt lottery. Mr. Mead supported the conviction, and :\Ir, Forrest Fulton represented the appellant. Tlltl ap|>ellanh, it was stated, had been in bile habib of inserting advertisements otfering occupation of a profitable and pleasant kind, by which from 10s. bo X2 could easily be obtained by either sex, on an outlay of Cd. On behalf of the defendant, Mr. Fulton contended that, although the appellant had undoubtedly broken the law, yet he had done so unwittingly, and the learned judge commuted the sentence of imprisoument to a fine of JBoO and costs.
A QUAKER'S GOODS SEIZED FOR TITHES. A distraint for tithes due to the Rev. W. Eliot, vicar of Aston, has been made at Moseley Hall, near Birmingham, the residence of Mr. Richard Cadbury. head of the firm of Cadbury Brothers, the well-known cocoa manufacturers. The amount claimed was 16s. 4d., being the apportionment of tithes redemption in lieu of tithes for a chapel ia Upper Highgate Street, Birmingham, belonging to Mr. Cadbury, On reading the warrant Mr* Cadbury said he declined to pay the amount as a matter of conscience, and disputed the legality of the bailiffs coming to his residence, which was out of the parish of Aston. The chief officer explained that uuder an old statute members of the society of Friends existed under certain disabilities. In an ordinary case the distraint must be levied upon «e premises in respect of which the tithe is due, and tho goods seized are kept impounded for a certain number of days; while in the case of a member of the Society of Friends the residence of the person owing the tithes can be visited wherever situate, and the goods can be sold immediately Under the circnmstancea the officer said he had no alternative but to seize some property to cover the amount of the claim, and asked Mr. Oadbury if there was any article which he should prefer that they should remove. Mr. Cadbury said he was afraid that by pointing out any article for removal he would himself be assisting in what he understood was an illegal seizure, and the bailiffs not wishing to disturb the privacy of any of the rooms, seized ft clock which was hanging in the ball, and which n amount would about eover the value of the tithe redemption charge and the expenses.
An old count paid his addresses to one of the richest heiresses of Paris. In asking her hand in marriage, he frankly said to her u, Mise B., I am very old, and you are very younoA will you do me the honour to become mj wido^" A country rector, with whom I am weU. acquainted, told me the following story He was dining with the members of a benefit society, and after each toast the band played appropriate tunes. When the health of the doctor was proposed, one of the men said to the rectcr: What tune shall we play, air? Will the Dead March in Saul'do!" A gentleman, who was severely cross-examined by the celebrated Mr. Dunning, was repeatedly asked if he did not lodge on the verge of the court. At length he answered that he did. M And pray, sir," said the counsel, for what rea- son did you take up your residence in that place ? To avoid the rascally impertinence of dunning was the witness's reply. Oh dear this pie isn't cooked at all," said Mrs. Snaggs. 111 have to scold Mary Ann for it." it will be of no use," replied Snaggs. "It Is impossible for her to make pies that are properly baked." Why, I'd like to knew ? Because woman's work is never done, you know." An elegantly-dressed young lady one day entered a railway carriago in Paris, where there were three or four gentlemen, one of whom was lighting a cigar. Observing her, the Frenchman asked if smoking would incommode her. She replied "I do not know, sir; no gentleman has ever smoked in my presence." Mamma," said a little fellow, whose mother had forbidden him to draw horses and ships on the mahogany sideboard with a sharp nail—" mamma, this ain't a nicfe house. At Sam Beckett's we can cut the sofa, and pull out the hair, and ride the shovel and tongs over the carpet; but hero we can't get any fun at all." In a lane, where it was impossible for two vehicles td pass, a Quaker in his gig confronted an obstinate fellow in a cart. The Quaker mildly declined to back his horse the obstinate follow swore he would not. After an hour or so of ineffectual discussion, the man in the cart thought to crush the Quaker into submission by taking out a newspaper and calmly perusing it. Friend," said the Quaker, when thou hast finished thy paper, I trust thou will lend It to me The man was beaten, and backed his horse with* out more ado. Three or four wits had dined together, and while taking their wine, the subject of impromptu, and the difficulty of finding rhymes for certata names was discussed. A general of brigade named Morris, who was also a poet, challenged any of tha party to find a happy rhyme for his name. The challenge was accepted by an actor present, nampd Brougham, and the following was the result: All hail to thee, thou gifted son The warrior-poet, Morris.
