NOTES OF THE WELK. The Permissive Bill advocates in Wrexham have agaiu triumphed iu the local police court, thanks to those magistrates who appeared there to act upon their suggestions. The battle of the Walnut Tree Hotel license application has become an annual one for some years, and has bU engaged the attention of the Good Templar fraternity that their despicable system of espionage has been applied almost exclusively to that house. When the application was last year submitted to the Bench asd refused by a majority of one magistrate, it was accepted as an indication of success this year. If there were then no justifiable objections to it, there were certainly none in the evidence which was produced on Monday. The Permissive Bill advocates, we will do them the justice of say- ing, ha.ve relieved the ordinary policemen from putting in an appearance in court to speak to the conduct of the hotel. They spared no trouble in hunting up "cases" likely to damage the character of the house and its ocoupier. Their statements were therefore not likely to be shorn of anything that would influence the Justices on their behalf. But as the leading advocate proved to the court, there was not a particle of evidence to show that Mr Wilson conducts his bouse loosely or tolerates drunkenness. On the other hand, the scrutinising inquiries of the teetotal witnesses having so lamentably failed, is positive proof that the Walnut Tree" is conducted in a most satisfactory manner. Upon this point alone the opponents to the application based their chances of frustrating the ends of justice. There was no denial to the fact that there is an absolute necessity in the populous district of Rhosddu that spirituous liquors should be retailed there for the public convenience. With such evidence before them, it is astonishing bow those magistrates who vetoed: the application could have formed their conclusion. The time has not yet arrived for the abolition of public-houses, and until it does,—if ever—our duty is to see that those who hold the licenses are respectable and trustworthy persons. If we im- prove the status of the publicans, we shall indirectly diminish drunkenness; and to give a respectable beer-seller a spirit license is to make his position more important and of greater worth, and con- sequently to increase the responsibilities of his office. Some of our local magistrates think other wise, and prefer pleasing ill advised teetotallers to taking a statesmanlike view of the question before them. To those of our readers who attended the lectures by the Rector of Marchwiel on the Assyrian dis- coveries, the announcement of the death of Mr George Smith will be received with considerable regret. The greatest of Assyrialogists, as he was styled by one of the best German cuneiform scholars, died at Aleppo, on the 19th ult, in the flower of his days. He was born on March 26th, 1840. of humble but estimable parentage, it is said in the parish of Chelsea. His parents gave him the best education they could afford, but he used to say that his schooling was over by his loth year. He was apprenticed soon after leaving school to learn the art and mystery of bank-note engraving and printing. Before he bad served out half his seven years it was no uncommon practice with him to snatck a large slice from his dinner hour for a stolen visit to the British Museum. Here he became deeply interested in the Assyrian sculp- tures and inscriptions, and obtained leave to make casts of some of the cunel slabs ami tablets for the purposes of study. Through the kind intervention of Sir Henry Rawlinson, who saw that he was a pushing young scholar, Mr Smith was engaged by the Trustees of the British Museum to assist in the work of preparing a new volume IIf the Cuneiform Inscriptions of Western Asia. He suosequently made important contributions to textual Assyriology which include papers with the cuneiform texts subjoined, printed in the volumes of "Transactions" of the Society of Biblical Arcbssdogy. It was in. the same" Transations" that the first fragment of the Chaldean account of the Deluge was printed in a translation, but it attracted no attention whatever until 1872, when Mr George Smith's name sudJenly became a house- hold word. In the following spring he started on bis first mission of exploration to Nineveh in search of an important missing fragment of this extra- ordinary text. He found it and returned. But this sudden termination of the enterprise did not satisfy everybody, and in the next spring be went out agaiu under the auspices of the British Museum to ransack the trenches he had already opened, but which he had been compelled to abandon. This mission turned cut a great success, although treasures were still left behind which he had hoped to bring home, as part of the spoils of that third and last expedition which has just terminated so fatally. The good folks of Devonshire have been indulg- ing in a. laugh at the expense of one of their members of Parliament who has just got bis own foot into some mud which he had diligently scraped together for a political opponent to tumble in. Sir Thomas Acland, who represents North Devon in the Liberal interest, in a speech in Parliament near the close of the session drew a picture of the sad persecutions with which wicked Church Tories vex mild and long-suffering Dissenters. In his part of Devonshire, he Said, property was held under restrictions which prevented Dissenting tenants from worshipping God according to their con>cienceS. True; and Sir Thomas, the Liberal member, was of all men the one who might best have kno^n such to be the case. For, fOl tll with Sir Thomas Aland's own leases are brought to light, and there, eure enough, is a clause which Bays that the tenant "shall not let, assign, or otherwise part with the possession of the said premises, or any part thereof, or permit the same to be used or ocsupied as a couventicle or place of meeting for the purposes of religious worship, or as a shop or other place for the sale of beer, cider, or any other spirituous liquor whatsoever, or carry on or permit to be carried ou therein any danger- ous or offensive trade or business whatever." These leases are signed by Sir Thomas's own hand. So we have the amusing exhibition of this stout champion of Dissent pronibitiug the existence on his estates of couveuticles, beer-shops, or auy offensive trade,"—these institutions being men- tioned together in one sentence and all alike iorbiuden. The worthy Baronet's Nonconformist patrons are of course greatly incensed at the exposure of their representative's inconsistency, and have not beeu put into a better temper by a long letter of explanation which he has written, in which he not only backs out ol the position winch tie took up in the House of Commons against the Church, but also adds something that tells to the discredit of Dissent, viz., that in some in the West, young persons have beeu I hindered from presenting themselves for confirm- ation by a threat of dismissal from their situations." How Sir Thomas will make peace agaiu with his Dissenting constituents after tuis double offence, we do not know. But our advice to him is not to pay court to Dissenters and Radicals any more, but to be true to the Church of which he professes himself a member. Then he will be independent of the applause or censure of Nonconformist Church-haters, and will be in every respect a happier and more useful man.

This entertainment is marvellous for its skill and ingenuity. and tha negro part is well sustained by Messrs Pete White, Clarence Norman, and J. May. The Cninese fair, introducing contortionists acrobats, jugglers, bellringers, &o., is worthy of note' and the transformation scene is admirable. No one should fail to visit this entertainment, full par-, ticulara of which appear in our advertising columns. ] WREXHAM BOWLING GREEW—On Wednesday a ternoon. the members of this Greln assembled to ) layoff f r a claret jug, given by the pr s dent of the club, Mr e J. Williams. Pairs Wtre drawn at tour ocifcck, nnd the contest lasted about three hou's.

THE TRAMWAYS.—The Wrexham District Tram- ways Company have commenced running trial trips from the New Inn at the Rhos. but at present passengers have to alight on reaching the Wrexham toll-house. This new and improved system of loco motion seems to be becoming popular, and during the past ten days each journey has been made by a goodly nnmber of people. As yet the company has not issued time bills but as soon as some few necessary preliminaries are completed this neces- sary will be supplied and punctuality as well as a strict adherence to carrying out the bye-laws will be observed. WREXHAM BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The weekly meeting of the board was held on Thursday, when there were present Captain Grilfith-Boscawen, chairman; Mr A. Peel and Â. W. Edwards, vice- chairmen; Lieutenant-Colonel White; and Messrs E. Rowlaud. G. Roberts, J. Burton. J Konrick, J. D. Beard, C. W. Parsonage, M. Hughes. J. H. Ffouikes, J. Beale, G. Roberts, E. B. Samuel, W. Thomas, and G. H. Whalley, M.P. There was no public business before the board. The number in the house during the week was 211 corresponding week last year, 218; last week. 213.

WHO WAS THE FATHER OF RICHARD WILSON, THE GREAT LANDSCAPE PAINTER.—In the list of names of the Rectors of Gwaenysgor, near Rhyl, since A.D. 1547, I find that of John Wilson, who W:,8 collated to the living in A.D. 1709, and who remained in that parish about two years. Might he not be the father of the great man of whom we hear so much in these Eisteddvod days ? It is possible that the old parish register of Penegoes, Montgomeryshire, may throw some further light upon the subject, by giving us the Christian name ot the Incumbent of Penegoes in A.D. 1713. But the tangled skein wouid not even then be fully adjusted as evay John Wilson c mnut boast of a son. The entries in the Gwaenysgor old" register (one of the oldest in the diocese of St. Asaph) for the time John Wilson was rector of the parish have quite disappeared, whilst those made iu A.D. 1538 arc stiil quite distinct.—CYMRO. PIANOFORTE ATTACHMENT.—Mr Joseph Robin- son, of Swansea, exnibited in Wrexham a few days ago his new patent, combined piano and harmonium, the attachment being such as enables piayer to produce sounds of both a piano and harmonium at the same time. By means of a stop, the basscaa be produced as with art harmonium, and the treble as with a piann, or vice vasa; and by using what on an harmonium is denominated a knee-swell there is obtained the advantage of playing the intrnment as an harmonium aione, and vice vrm. This at ach- ment can be applied to any pianoforte without interfering in the least with its construction, and without altering its ou'ward appearance, the reeds being placed in a case underneath the fingerb >ard. The bellows have a neat appearance when attached but they can be .detached at the pleasure of the performer, in which case the piano appears and sounds though only ordinarily constructed. This is an invention which only requires tc be known to become highly popular, greatly appreciated, and generally utilised. To travelling opera companies. troupes of Christy Minstrels, and other public performers, this instrument cannot fail to be of great value, and to supply a want which has long been felt by them. PERFORMANCE uF "LLEWEI,Y.Oil Tuesday even- ing the members of the Aberystwith and University Musical -oeifcty, assisted by several ladies and gentb men, gav <1 performance ¡o¡f .11' John Thomas' ^Pencerdd Gwalia) grand dramatic cantata Lleweiyn," at tue Temperance Hall, Aberystwith, to a very large, and appreciative audience, the concert being so well patronised that many intended visitors were unable to gain admittance, conse- quently the performance was repeated ou Thursday with equal success. The vocalists were:—Miss Hattic Daviea (soprano) Miss Annie Williams (contralto); MrWL Hopkins(tenor); Mrli C .Jenkins (bass). The conductor was Professor Parry, Mus. Bac, Cantab, and the accompanist. Miss Mary Jones. Mr John Thomas gave several harp solos in his usual well-known style and was enthusiasti- cally applauded The performance of the cantara was admirable, and as it is shortly to be produced in Wrexham, many oÎ our readers in that. vicinity will have an opportunity of judging for themselves of the merits of the work of her Majesty's harpist. whose popularity in the Principality is great, and whose efforts in improving the musical art in his native country are wide-spread and unflagging. POSTAL ARRANGEMENTS.—We are glad to hear that the Postmaster-General, through representa- tions which have been made to him, has sanctioned the establishment of two more sub-offices to be attached to the Wrexham postal district—that is to say, one at South sea and another at Pentre Broughton. From these offices circular deliveries will be made by the sub-postmasters who may be appointed. We understand that Sir Wat kin has the nomination of a nnmber of sub-postmasters, and that he has already selected two. In all pro- bability the offices will be opened in the course of another fortnight, and the change will no doubt offer great facilities to the inhabitants of those two popular districts. It may not be out of place to state that there have been no fewer than 5 sub-offices attacked to the Wrexham office during the past three years, also four letter-boxes in different parts of the district. There are ten circular deliveries in places where formerly no delivery existed The number of sub-offices now under Wrexham is 21. We would strongly recommend to the postal authorities, as a further improvement, that receiv- ing offices be established in Rhosddu and High Town, where money orders and savings bank business could be conducted, which would be a great boon to that district. Notwi hstanding that we have much to be thankful for in the way of postal facilities, we are assured that the present post-I ffice at Wrexham is far too small for the large amount of business which has to be gone through daily, and that a Crown office would be an improvement on the present establishment. From a report just issued by the Tosl master- General, it appears that Crown offices exist in such as Chester, Dewsbury. Giteshead, Loit'n, Harrowgate, Rochdale, and Peterborough. PROPERTY SALE.—On Wednesday, Messrs Baugh and Jones offered for sale by auction at the Golden Lion Inn, that shop, situate in High-street, Wrex- ham. togelher with the commodious dwelling-house, warehouse, and premises attached thereto, now in the occupation of Mr C. K. Benson also a ware- house at the back, now in the occupation of Mr Thomas Roberts, spirit merchant also two shops, large warehouse, and extensive business premises in H -nblns-s'r.-et, occupied by MrF. Stone, broker. There was a YGrJ good attendance, amongst those present being Messrs Evan Morris, Lloyd (ex- mayor). J. A. Hughes, Humphreys, Beale, Beirne, J. Jones. T. C. Jones, C. K. Benson, &c. The Solicitor engaged was Mr Sherratt", who read the general conditions of the sale, after which Mr Jones, the auctioneer, describe the property as having a fine double frontage in Hi<h street, and exten ling into Henblas-street,; both streets being so situated as to command for these commodious business premises a first-class trade. They all had seen that W rexham was a first-rate business town, being -he best in the northern portion of the Principality, and it was rapidl^ increasing in size and its property in value, and before long it would be second to none in the country for its commercial importance (hear, hear). Mr Stone started the bidding at .£!,COO, and it steadily increased to .£1.000 bv £100 each bid, when a halt was made. After a brief interval.£.t.JOO was offered, and at this the bidding ceased until .£1- 200 was named. and as there was no advance upon this the hammer fell, Mr C. K. Benson beiug the purchaser. As a proof of the increase in the value of property in the town it may be interesting to note that eight years a'() these identical premises were purchased by Mr Roberts for £1,700. That gentleman spent, some- thing like £900 in renovating and improving them in every way. Mr Benson, the purchaser of the property, is well-known in the town and district as a grocer and tea dealer doing a very extensive business, and by his new acquisition he will be en- abled to enlarge his present commodious ware- houses to enable him to keep pace with the in- creasing demands of his trade. The sale excited considerable interest, and the anticipations of the vendor were realised by the result. Two shops, Nos. 7 and 8. Hope-street, were purchased by Mr Richards, draper for .1370. The other property was an excellent licensed hotel, situate in Mostvn- street, Llandudno, called the Birmingham Arms," which was purchased by Mr Henry Pritchard, builder, of Vandudno, for .£1.505. Several other lots were withdrawn. 1ST D.R. Y.-The members of this corps will assemble at the depot en Tuesday evening next at 7 30, when the company's prizes will be presented by Mrs Yorke. ECCLESIASTICAL.—The Rev Wr. Davies, Llan- gollen, has been appointed one of the curates of WrexhaltJ, in the place of the l,v E. LI. Lloyd, removed to Bangor, Carnarvonshire.

Pratt, Newtown, passed in preliminary subjects, Scripture with additional books, English and languages, third class. G. H. Bradley, Wrexham, Grove Park School, also passed in preliminary subjects, English, Latin, French, and Mathematics, third class. THE FAIR—On Thursday the usual fortnightly fair took place; but there was not much business done. both buyers and sellers being present in small numbers. No doubt the inclemency of the weather proved detrimental to the interests of those con- cerned in the market. Prices were rather hig-h, but no doubt that was accountable from the paucity of stock. Mr Lloyd's usual sale took place GOOD NEWS FOR THE CIVIL SERVICE.—For a, number of years past there has been a continual agitation amongst the Inland Revenue officers in the out-door department of her Majesty's Civil Service for an increase in the rate of their salaries, and although on more than one occasion the leaders of the applicants have been prematurely silenced, during the regime of the late Government, as soon as the Conservatives came into power fresh appeals were made, and now we are happy to announce that the Treasury, en the recommendation of the Board of Inland Revenue, have granted an increase of thirty per cent in the salaries of the officers in the out-door department. SIR NOEL PATON'S NEW PICTURE.—Her Majesty's limner for Scotland, whose Mors Jauua Yilæ" was so much admired during the time it was ex- hibited by Messrs Bayley and Co., at the Con- servative Reading Room, Hope-street, Lois just servative Reading Room, Hope-street, Lois just finished a new picture, The Good Shepherd," which is intended to be a companion to his Man of Sorrows." Christ, in garments of red a:d blue, and with a halo around his head, stands in a rulrilted mountain landscape, his left hand graspin"-1 a crook, his right embracing a lamb, torn and bleed ing which he has just rescued from the thorny brake. Upon his charge he looks down with a face full of infinite compassion. The picture has within the last few days been exhited to the Queen. ART TREASURES EXHIBITION. Several very marked improvements haye been made in the internal arrangements during the the principal alteration being the removal of the whole of the cases from the Japanese Court iuto the entrance hall, thereby giving that part of the building a very attractive and warm appearance. The glass-blowing department has also been made replete with every requirement for the process, and none ahould leave the Exhibition without witnessing this interesting work. The attendance during the week as been as follows:— Sept. 1 MS „ 2 778 „ 4 8 0 „ 5 010 S-7 ,i 1 558 Total i,ViJ The usual organ recitals and baud performances have been daily taking place. buL the special attrac- tion of the week was an evening concert given by the members of the Eistedivoci cnoir. Tnis concert on Thursday evening was not honoured with such a bumpiag house as was present at a. previous concert. The resesved seats were nut by any means full, but there were a great many people in the pi-omenade. Mr Mills conducted with his usual ability. The programme was not Emg enough to be wearisome, and sufficiency varied to be attrac- tive. It consisted of Welsh airs. an operatic selection, II Trovatore, and three choruses iroin Handel's "Messiah, namely, "And the Giory," •' Worthy is the Lamb," and the Hallelujaa, each of which was given witu full orchestral accompaniment. As a whole, the concert was very successful, and the audience were not sparing of their applause, the part song. 0, hush thee" my babie," and the glee, Y G.vauwyn" (^priugj being beautifully rendered, and deservedly encored The concert concluded about ten oeiook. The next performance of this choir takes place on 1 hursday, the 14th inst. In the industrial annexe there is a case of violins exhibited by Mr Edward Compton, of Man jhester, the well-knowa dealer iu the cele- brated Cremonas."

Tney were taken from board the Victory, on which Lord Nelson died, at the battle of Trefalgar, in 1805. On Tuesday week, a grand concert is announced to take piace, when The dramatic cantata entitled Llewoiyn," composed by Mr John Thomas (Pencerdd Gwati.i). flares: to her Majesty the Queen, will be produced, the several parts being sustained by first-class artists. A full account of the same appears in our advertising columns The prices ct admission have been considerably reduced, a fact w uicll will no doubt cause the building to be crowded to over- flowing.
BOROUGH PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY.—Before T. C. Jones, in the chair; E. Tench, A. Wr. Edwards anu E. Williams, Esqis. SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A YOU H. Edward Randies (17), of Rhosnessney, was charged with having embezzled the sum cr £:.> 3s Gd, the property of Price CiarS, butohe r, of Rhosnessney, near Wrexham. Mr Sherratt appeared in support of the prosecu- tion, and Mr Jones defended. In opening the case, Mr Sherratt said the facts were briefly these: The detendant acted in itie capacity of a servant to the prosecutor, who made a sort of banker of his (tae prosecutor's) uionier, leavincr all his cash with her ior safety, and co,;imo- for it as he wanted it to buy stock with. On tae 23rd of August the sum of £J iOs 61 was received from Mrs Clarke by the defendant, for the purpose of going with the prosecutor to buy some calves at Gwersyllt. The money was left in the charge of the defendant, who, on the way, at the order ui me prosecutor, paid for several lots of ale. For reasons which wculd be detailed afterwards, the calves were not paid for at the time, and t ii t,, prosecutor and defendant started home, the ituter having charge of £3 3S tfd, the balance ct the £3 10s 6d, which remained after the several payments. The parties separated before arriving at ..nosuess- ney, and the defendant was instructed to return the money, which was cuen in his possession, to Mr Clarke. On the following morning the prosecu- tor, hearing that Mrs Clarke had not received the money, asked the delendant tur it, when no said that he gave it to prosecutor Oil the previous day. As the defendant persisted in that statement, tne present proceedings wore taken. Prosecutor, being sworn, said he was a master butcher, and lived at Prior to the 23rd of August the defendant was in his employ in the capacity of a labourer, at the rate of 5s per week, and board and lodging. He nad beeu in his employ for three weeks. Was in the liaoO of paying money to his mother (Mrs Clark), and paid some on the 19tii instant. At this point Mr Jones infoiuied the bench t.;4t the present defendant had summoned Claric tur anL assault before the county magistrates but as tae assault occurred in the boruu-n it woiiid be well if the case at the county oouit were withdrawn, so that the two could be heard before the borough magistrates. Consequently he would apply for an adjournment. After a consultation it was agreed that this case should be adjourned at tue close of the examiaa- tion-in-cliief vi the prosecutor. Prosecutor, continuing, said his mother acted at a sort of banker for him. Oil be 19"11 uit., ne was in the Wrexham marKet until tate, and on returning home he gave his mother ti5 10s to keep for iUfl1- On the 23rd ult, he went to his mother's with the defendant for £: 10s 6d to buy a calf with. His mother handed over that amount to the defendant, who put it into his pocket. Witness and tie de- fendant then went to the home of the former. His mother lived in the town. Went home for the donkey and cart; had a cup of tea, and then wvat together to Gwersyllt to buy a couple ot calves from the residence of Mrs Bloomer. On going thither, defendant and witness called at the house of Mrs Hill, the "Hole in the Wall" beerhouse, at Gwer- syllt, where they had some aie to drmii. Toe de- fendant paid Is for the ale, at the request, ;,f tae witness. Stayed in the house anout ten minutes, and went to Mrs hlooiller"; to oee the calvvs. Lvirs Bloomer resided in the Wildeiuess. Bought two calves, and only having £ 5 9, 6d left, lie did not pay for them, as he was to set lie for them on the day following.

Caliud for two half-gallons of ale, for winch tbe defendant paid out of the X3 9s 6d. Stopped thereabout three- quarters" of an hour, leaving at about six o'clock, with two calves in the cart.

THE THANKI "f the Medical Profession are DUE to Mtssas BERNARD & Co., Lf-irh Di^tii'^rv, Scotland, for producing the ENCORE WHISKY, a spirit more whuh'soi/u »«d le-s irritating than any spiitt ex- tant, being especially useful for patients suffering from kidney disease. R. W. JONES, F.C.S., M,R.C.S., L.It.C.P.E. COUNTY ANALYST OFFIC Ruthin, February 2G. 1876. IHAVFi made a careful Analysis of the ENCORE WHISKY, which was procured from the Agent Mr CLARK, of C ester), in the ordinary way. I tind that it is.1 spirit of extraordinary purity, being periectly reefrom Fusil Oil. hence it possesses a fine and delicate flavour, quite different to the oily and impure Whisky as usually sold. The efft'c' of drinking impure Whisky is unfortunately so sad, that I am of opinion none ought to ho sold unless ir came up to such a standard of purity as this ENCORE WHISKY. J. J.

jTHE TURKISH ATROCITIES.
j THE TURKISH ATROCITIES. It is not unnatural that the conduct of the Turks in quelling the insurrection in Bulgaria should excite a profound feeling of indignation throughout the kingdom. It was hoped and 11 ID believed that the earlier descriptions of Turkish barbarities and cruelties practised on the iusurreciioniets were only the highly-coloured sketches of a newspaper correspondent, but the harrowiwg details supplied by Mr Schuyler, the American Consul, and other eye-witnesses to the disolatinn and butchery, have testified to the truthfulness of their depiction. We are all agreed in our righteous indignation at the ZD n ZD occurrence of such atrocities, though we may not all have rushed to the platform to give vent to our feelings. Public meetings have been very general throughout the week, and a section of the Radicals have gone out of their way to heap abuse upon the Government for not doing—they know not what. No Englishman would for a moment defend the atrocious conduct of the Turks, and all their apologies I in extenuation of them will go for nothing with the people of this country. England, with one heart and voice, condemns and abhors these barbarous outrages, as all the world by this term is aware. And, although we are not yet in possession of the despatches our Foreign Secretary has written on the subject, we may venture to say that our indignation has been faithfully interpreted at the Turkish court. Lord Derby has an English heart, and to mistrust him would be to place no confidence in the best Foreign Minister this century has seen. In the letter of the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs we have positive evidence that (to use Mr Bourke's own words) "the Government have remonstrated in the strongest terms with the Porte upon the sub- ject, and have told them that these events have had the effect of alienating the country from Turkey in a manner which may prove disastrous to the Ottoman Empire." Still more forcibly does the hon. member express his own views on the subject. I care not," he says how serious the insurrection was, which was fomented by foreigners, or how sanguinary were the intentions and acts of the insurgent ( Christians, the carnage and devastation by! which it was suppressed cannot be justified, and reflects shame upon the Government under which these events took place, and infamy upon the actors in the dreadful crimes which have been pCJpetrated." In many meetings, Sir H. Elliot, our ambassador at Constantinople, has been the object of much abuse, and some of the rampant Radicals have passed resolutions demanding his recall. Whether Sir Henry has been vigilant and watchful enough, whether he has taken all possible means to ascer- tain the character and extent of the barbarities are questions which must be decided hereafter. It is not English-like to condemn a man without sufficient evidence to prove his guilt, but our ambassador-who, it will be admitted has rendered this country good service in the past —has already been dismissed from his post by violent agitators. Mr Bourke may be sup- posed to know what has beeu done, and his belief is "that our ambassador at Constanti- nople has never lost an opportunity of doing everything that diplomacy can do to arrest the bloodshed and to secure punishment'for the guilty, but the Russian and Austrian ambassadors, in common with Sir H. Elliot, were not informed of the atrocities which had taken place until the worst was over. Except- ing those noisy demagogues who seize upon every opportunity—from a Tichoorne demon- stration upwards—to attack our Government, all will accept the assurance of the Under- Foreign Secretary that the Prime Minister and Lord Derby feel as indignant at tfeese events as any other two men in the country, and mean to act in accord- ance with those feelings. But, as he very properly remarks, however heartrending the Bulgarian massacres have been, we must all recollect that English statesmen are not the rulers of Turkey, and cannot use physical force in the provinces of the Empire upon a few days' notice of the danger to the Christians. The first duty of English statesmen is a regard for the interests of this country, but Turkey knows that the government of England will never support tyranny, oppression, or cruelty wherever it may be found, and that as the Queeiv of England treats her Mahommedan subjects with justice and mercy, we have a right to demand from the head of the Mahom- medan faith similar treatment for the various Christian races who live in the territories of the Sultan. Nothing could be more unequivocal or emphatic than this declaration, which in itself is sufficient to set at rest any misgivings that may be entertained as to the course the Govern- ment is adopting. It is not creditable to the Liberals that they should utilise the philanthropic and humane sentiments of the people to advance'their cause. Even Mr Gladstone joins in the unworthy attack. It is a discreditable proceeding to stir up public indignation by giving details of the Turkish atrocities and then bring the government into odium by insinuating that it is responsible for wbatmight haveoccurredinthe time of any other administration. A pronounced Liberal organ, the Spectator, has some pertinent remarks on this point which we commend to those of its party now clamoring ior what appears like active intervention. The Eastern Question" remarks our contemporary, has been be; ore the world for the last twenty years. The Crimean war did not pretend to settle It; it only claimed to hang it up until a better informed generation should find a satis- ¡ factory solution. From 1856 to 1876 the Liberal party had, to say the least, the lion's share of power and influence. Throughout that time the Eastern Question stretched across the political horizon as a thunder-cloud symbolising tempest. Yet in all those years I we can recall no serious effort to lay even the foundation of a settlement. Where units are not fractions count as kings, and to a nation which has grown accustomed to Liberal com- mon-places about the non-intervention and moral influence, even the Conservative policy in the East has an air of decision and almost grandeur."
