The official language of Cyprus will be English. The German Parliament is convoked for the 9th of September. The English out at San Francisco are going to present Lord Beaconsfield with a gold casket. A bill to prevent the spread of socialism has been presented to the German Federal Council. Central American advices report the poisoning of General Veintemilla, the President of Ecuador. The session of the Greek Chamber of representatives opened on Monday. The proceedings were devoid of all interest. The date of the distribution of the awards to the exhibitors in the Paris Exhibition is fixed for the 18th September. Nubar Pasha is the bearer to the Khedive of important reform projects sanctioned by the English and French Governments. The Legislative Assembly of Vancouver's Island has passed a bill to impose a tax of 40 dollars per head upoji all Chinamen in the province. The strike amongst cab drivers at Paris is over. The Cab Company made one or two small concessions and the men have returned to work. The latest news from Cape Town is to the effect that the attitude of the Zulus is still disquieting, and that on the northern border hostilities continue. Stores for Cyprus were shipped from Woolwich arsenal on Wednesday, including two photographic waggons and apparatus, and large numbers of plank bedsteads. Russia will be represented on the commission for organising Eastern Roumelia by M. de Coumany, Germany by Dr. Busch, and Austria by Herr von Kosjek. The semi-official Journal de St. Petersbourg says that the withdrawal of the British fleet and Russian army from the neighbourhood of Constantinople will be simultaneous. The King of the Hellenes has sent an aide-de-camp to the Prince of Montenegro, ostensibly to convey a decoration to his Highness, but really, it is suspected, on a secret mission. The Emperor of Germany is reported to be making most satisfactory progress at Teplitz. He is once more able to use his right hand pretty freely, and to write memoranda and notes of some length. A Larnaca telegram states that the troops are suffer- ing considerably from the local form of fever usually prevalent in Cyprus at this season. The Indian troops have commenced re-embarking for Bombay. The Christian population of Nicosia have petitioned Sir Garnet Wolseley that Greek might be established as the official language of Cyprus. They were informed by Sir Garnet that English will be the official language of the island. The Standard correspondent at Copenhagen tele- graphs I am able to state on the highest authority that the report of the King having sanctioned the marriage of Princess Thyra with Prince Louis Napoleon is entirely devoid of truth. Apprehensions continue to be entertained of a rising of Lazes in Asia. These people declare that they con- sider themselves under British protection, and that they will hoist the British flag on the advance of the Russians against Batoum and fight under it. One of the Austrian army divisions advancing in Bosnia has met with a repulse, being opposed by an overwhelming number of insurgents. In their retreat the Austrians left behind two guns, which they say was owing to the want of draught animals. Wallingford, a town in Connecticut, has been visited by a tornado, which in a few minutes demolished a number of buildings, killed thirty persons, and injured a number of others. The area covered by the tornado was two miles long and one mile broad. In the Rhodope district a terrible state of things exists. The Mussulman refugees, expelled from house and land by the bitter course of war, and meeting with no mercy either from the victorious Russians or the emancipated Christians, are making the whole region a prey to violence and rapine. Intelligence from Kars states that 200 of the best shops and houses in the town have been burned down. The fire commenced at the Government bakeries, and towards its close ignited a store with a large number of rifle cartridges. Several explosions took place. The best quarter in the town is burnt down. Desquiens, one of the youths charged with the murder of the Widow Cremieux at Neuilly, has been found Guilty, with extenuating circumstances, and sentenced to hard labour for life. The revolting disclosures made during the trial have created great sensation in Paris. The other prisoner will be tried in Belgium. Two Buddhist priests in Yokohama having officially declared that the sun moves and the earth stands still, some students ventured to dispute the accuracy of this assertion. A crowd of Japanese preferred the oracular dictum of the priesthood to the science of the students, who were attacked and some of them killed. Another engagement between Austrian troops and the Bosnian insurgents has been officially reported to the Austrian Government. On the 8th instant, the 7th division of the Austrian occupying army fought for nine hours near Jaice with 5,000 Bosnians and Turks, in- cluding three battalions of Turkish regular troops, whom they put to flight. Forty thousand men of the Russian Imperial Guard will commence embarking for Russia on Saturday (to- day), and the simultaneous withdrawal of the rest of the troops from San Stefano and the neighbourhood of Gallipoli will follow immediately afterwards. The Turks will reoccupy the positions as they are succes- sively evacuated by the Russians. The British fleet will leave shortly for Gallipoli. Interesting detail* as to the population and the resources of the island of Cyprus are published. Three- fourths of tha population are Christian, and the in- habitants generally are peaceful, lazy, tolerant to strangers, fond of pleasure, and somewhat addicted to intemperance but robbery and murder are unknown. Midsummer is the worst season of the year for health. -The rural districts are nearly free from fever. There is much room for improvement in the fortifications. Turkey drew over two hundred thousand pounds sterling yearly out of the island, and the revenue could be easily raised to half a million by good administration.
SAINT MARY'S CHURCH, DENBIGH.
SAINT MARY'S CHURCH, DENBIGH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. SIR,—In reference to your notice of the pointed allusions" made by the ven. archdeacon on the collec- tions in S. Mary's Church, Denbigh, will you permit a few words. Whilst all good Churchmen will sympathise with the rector in the inadequacy of the church collections, and will agree in the main with him in his method of making the wants of the Church known, there yet remains some little latitude of opinion as to .how funds for church expenses may be more readily forthcoming. S. David's Church, being a pew-rent church, is pre- sumably self-supporting; that is, that the expenses of this church are not included in. the general church expenses of the parish. Thus the congregations have to provide voluntarily for the expenses of the services in S. Mary's Church and Whitchurch; and S. Mary's Sunday morning congregation is mainiy looked to for these fuuds. At these services about three collections for church expenses are made to one for the sick and poor; and though this latter collection is always a much larger one than a single collection for expenses, more money is contributed to the expenses than to the charitable object. Individually the disproportion in the amount of alms contributed to each object is felt; and, doubtless, the fact that the smaller recipient (the sick and poor), and more worthy object has the fewer collections has an influence upon the amount of the contributions. It will be interesting to notice the effect that the sub- stitution of plates for the collecting bags will have upon the amount of the collections. Crediting the congre- gation with conscientiousness, would it not have been sufficient, by more constant appeals, and by practical and analytical allusions to the collections, to have trusted to the better feeling of the too-srsall contribu- tions, rather than to have put the obstacle of publicity in the way of the contributions of the less wealthy in the congregations. If the gross amount of the collec- tions is increased, it is to be hoped that it may not be to the diminution in the number of coins (especially coppers) collected. If every congregation was collected from there would be an increase in the amount col- lected and those attending services who do not attend the Sunday morning English service would have opportunities of contributing given them. A further suggestion is that every collection should be propor- tional between special objects and church expenses, and church expenses and the parochial charities. As instance, the collection on the first Sunday in the month might be devoted three-fourths to the sick and poor, and one-fourth to the church expenses; and on the other Sundays, three-fourths to church expenses and one-fourth to charity. In this way would the element of charity be maintained through every col- lection. and act. as an inducement to enhance contri- butions. A little thought will show that the expenses fund would not suffer, but rather might be increased by the proportion of the special collection.—I am, sir, yours, &c., PARISHIONEB. Denbigh, August, 1878.
When cows are themselves good milkers, what is the use of employing dairymaids r— Fun. On Tuesday, the Middlesborough town council presented Lieut.-Colonel Saddler with a. silver cradle. The gallant colonel, after having been elected mayor in November last, vacated the chair in order to contest a seat in the representation of the borough in Parliament in the Conservative interest. During his term of office his wife pre- sented him with a son, and the council determined to give him the cradle. Beckitt's Paris Blue.—The marked superiority of this La.undry Blue over all others, and the quick appreciation of itsmerits by the Public, has been attended by the usual result, viz: a flood of imitations: the merit of the latter mainly consists in the ingenuity exerted, not simply in stating the square shape but inakingthe gellcral appearan ce ofthe wrappers resemble that of the genuine rticle. The Manufacturers beg therefore to caution uvers to see aeckitt's Paris Blue on each packet. SPEAKING OP CHAPMAN'S ENTIRE WHEAT FLOUR, a writer in the Christian World says—" Many of the first physicians of the dayare prescribing no other medicine for their little patients, and it is astonishing sometimes how children who have pined on a diet of fine white baker's bread, will thrive when fed on well cooked porridge made of this Entire Wheat Flour."

CRICKET, A match between the Mold and Chester Cricket Clubs will be played on the Roodee on Saturday (to day). SAD ACCIDENT IN THE CRICKET FIELD—During a match on Tuesday between the Vice-Regal and the Zingari Clubs, at Dublin, Mr Kempster, one of the first bats in Ireland, received a blow from a cricket ball which has entirely paralysed his lower limbs.

Edwards, Trevor House, two medals Officers of 2nd R.V., two medals from Mr Rawlins, Wrexham. The. band of the 9th Denbighshire R.V. played several selections during the sports.

Notice of appeal against the refusal of Judge Warren to grant a new trial in the Bagot will case was lodged on Tuesday. Colonel RaveT^^ the commandant of the Volunteer Artillery camp at &\ £ »»tMiryness, has addressed a rebuke to the officers and men respect to the slackness of the discipline of the camp. PAUPERISM.—A statement has been published on the amount expended on the in-maintenance and out-relief of paupers for the half-year which ended at Ladyday, 1878. Returns were received from all the unions-namely, 649. The amount expended in these unions during the half- was for in-maintenance £ 910,191, and for outdoor relief £ 1,302,789; total, £ 2,212,980. As compared with the half-year which ended at Lady-dav, 1876, the expendi- ture shows an increase of X66,687, or a difference of 3-1 per cent. THE ROYAL NAVAL REVIEW.—The naval review at Spithead on Tuesday by the Queen was greatly marred by the extremely bad weather which prevailed. The Queen arrived about half-past three in the Royal yacht, which then steamed between the lines of the ironclads, and immediately left for Osborne. Owing to the rain and heavy haze, as well as the number of craft of all descriptions hovering outside the review line?, it was deemed a matter of precaution not to have the ships moved, so the procession round the Royal yacht was abandoned. BRIBERY AT CARLISLE.—The licensed victuallers are extremely chagrined that Mr Cross, when questioned on the subject by Mr Chamberlain in the house, replied that he did not intend to prosecute the people who were guilty of corrupt practice at a municipal election in Carlisle. The party that won the election in question by the grossest beer bribery is the Liberal party—the very same, in fact, that returns Sir Wilfred Lawson to the house. Mr Waddy and Mr Hunter, the counsellor the defeated candidate (ex-Mayor Hargreaves, an old '48 Radical), in the course of their cross-examination of witnesses, proved that the Liberals of Carlisle have fallen into a shockingly corrupt state. The disclosures will do much to impair their prospects of success at the next general election. It is a joke, hewever, to find Sir Wilfrid's men relying on keer as their sheet anchor.— May fair. ENGLAND'S NATURAL WEALTH.-The wonderful sup- ply of coal and iron casts every other mineral into the shade, or Great Britain would be called rich in lead, zinc, and the minor metal.?. The precious metals are rare, and seldom worth the working. Burat has com- puted that the production of the useful metals and coal in Great Britain is four times that of France and Russia, six times that of Austria, eight times that of Spain or Scandinavia, nine times that of Prussia, and eleven times that of Belgium. What is the result? The metal and coal of Great Britain, transformed into machines, are computed to equal in productive power the hand-labour of every human being living. It is as if the population of a second world were contributing to lessen the toil of the thirty millions in this small corner of Europe. Manchester and Liverpool were small towns till machinery made our gigantic cotton industry possi- ble. The imports of raw cotton have been over a thousand millions of pounds yearly, and are rapidly re- turning to that amount.- Casqell's Popular Educator. A CAREER OF CRIME.—On Monday, at the Liverpool Borough Sessions, Ann Smith, 65 years of age, pleaded guilty to stealing a roll of cloth from the shop door of a local tradesman. She deliberately lifted up the roll and ran away with it, and saying that she had a black character, she now appealed to the Recorder for mercy. Mr Aspinall, Q C., said he had a difficulty in knowing what to do with the prisoner, as be disliked passing long sentences. -The woman's career, he said, ha.d been a most extraordinary one. In 1839 she was sentenced to two years' imprisonment for stealing, and the case must have been a very bad one, because it was her first offence. In 1844 she got nine months, in 1849 four months, and in the same year later on 12 months in 1851, early in the year a month, and then in July she was sentenced to seven years' penal servitude. In 1855, she, apparently, had been let out within a short time of the passing of that sentence-once more for stealing she was arrested and sent back to penal servitude. In 1859 she was again before the magistrates, and her term of penal servitude being unexpired she was sent back to complete it. In 1862 that sentence was over, but almost immediately she was again convicted, and again got ten years. She seemed to have got out of that in about seven years, which was about the time she would be kept. In 1869 she was sentenced again to seven years' penal servitude, and now she was convicted once more. Probably she always would be before the court, for as soon as she got out of gaol she began committing an offence precisely of the same description as before. In order that he might reflect what was best to be done with a woman so incorrigible, the recorder delayed passing sentence until the following day, when he sen- tenced him to seven years' penal servitude. Mr Aspinall said he had considered the case, and felt that he could not pass any other sentence than that named. Epps's COCOA.—GRATEFUL AND COMFORTING.— "By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws which govern the operations of digestion and nutri- tion, and by a careful application of the fine pro- perties of well-selected cocoa, Mr Epps has provided our breakfast tables with a delicately flavoured beverage which may save us many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judicious use of such articles of diet that a constitution may be gradually built up until strong enough to resist every tendency to dis- ease. Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready to attack wherever there is a weak point.

IRON. BARROW-IN-FURNESS, Monday.—There was only a small attendance of business men on 'Change this morning, and the position of the iron trade was reported as showing no improvement. Steelmakers have certainly a large number of orders in hand for forward delivery, bat it is feared that if buyers cannot be induced to extend their orders after the close of the shipping season in six weeks, a dull trade will be the result during the winter. Railway steel is in good re- quest, but merchant steel enjoys but a poor market. Iron ore is in steady request at late prices, native qualities realising from 12s to 13s 6d at pits. Irish ore is in good de- livery, and best Ulster qualities realise 9s 6d per ton, whilst second qualities fetch 7s 6d. Iron shipbuilders have only a limited number of ordera in hand with prices at an uure- munerative point. The finished-iron trade still shows a very weak position, and the mills are not nearly fully employed. The consumption of coal is limited, and prices are corres- pondingly weak. Shipping coastwise is fairly employed. MIDDLESBOROUGH, Tuesday.—The pig iron market to- day is firmer, ?iri prices are 6d per ton higher than last week, No. I being 4; and No 3 29s 6d, less commission. Iron for forward delivery is much inquired for, and some consumers offer to buy over the whole of next year. Stocks are declining a good deal, and shipments are improvine, so that prospects are looked upon as encouraging. Connal's warrant stores to- day having 64,700 tons of Cleveland pig i. The finished iron trade still shows no change for the better, and prices continue low and unremuuerative. Platcmakers have plenty to do, but no new orders of importance come in. Ship plates are Z6 5s, common bars L5 lOs, sheets £7 15s. The de- mand for coal is poor, with the exception of small shipments. WOLVERHAMPTON, Wednesday.—Orders ior finished iron were not improved this afieruo.n. Pig iron sold tamely. Messrs Cochrane, of Dudley, hare relighted a furnace. Prices of pig and finished iron not stronger in a few in- stances they were easier. The Wolverhampton tinplate works of Messrs Baldwin, after having been idle eight mouths, are being restarted. The creditors of Mr Carmi Rollason, manager to Messrs Whitehouse, ironmasters, to-day deter- mined to liquidate the estate the liabilities are zCIS,000 to X 14,000. The reported movement by the colliers for higher wages is believed to be unauthoritative.
AGRICULTURE. THE HARVEST IN W ALES.-The corn harvest in Wales this season is a fortnight earlier than usual, and the cutting of the wheat crop has become general in the Principality. During the recent hot weather the corn ripened rapidly, and a yield greatly in excess of former years may be calculated upon by the farmer. Great fears were expressed in the spring that the heavy rains would damage the crops, and that the produce would consist almost entirely of straw; fortu- nately, all grounds for apprehension are now dispelled. A custom prevails in most parts of the Principality of leaving the grain out in the field an unusual length of time, not un- freauently to the total damage of the crop. If the Welsh farmers carry their wheat as soon as possible after it is cut, which they may readily do, with fine weather and a little energy, the harvest of 1878 will be the bt they have had tor some years.
The Medical profession are now ordering Cauburys Cocoa Essence in thousands of cases, because it contains more nutritious and flesh forming elements than anv other beverage, and is preferable to the thick starchy Cocoa ordinarily sold.

At Cranbrook, though the yield will be under an average, the quality will be good. At Canterbury the earlier sorts of hops are developing fast, and their condition, so far, is all that could be desired. Writing to a correspondent from Hawarden, on 'small holdings," Mr Gladstone says—"I am favour- able to the principles on which you write—to the abolition of restrictions and limitations on land, and to hasing holdings of all sizes, with ahundance of small holdings.

His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales arrived there at four o'clock, and leftat half-past six. During the afternoon a number of balloons, of a grotesque form, such as cows, zebras, and the Claimant, were started from the grounds, and when floating in the air had a very ludicrous appearance. The small birds will have cause to rejoice over the gradual development of that humane and sensible inter- nationalism (neither Black nor Red) which is a ueculiar product of the modern Liberal spirit. The Austro- Hungarian and Italian Governments have invited the German Government to become a party to the inter- na'ional treaty for the protection of useful species of birds.

The motto proposed is UbiJiJc-s, ibi Lux et robur. The council has taken time to consider whether these armorial bearings are appropriate to the new borough. The threepenny piece has been a source of c-nsider- able discomfort to ministers and deacons, as iu enables members of the congregations, without shirking "the plate," to give of their substance the smallest silver current coin. A worthy clergyman in 'M.-ib<i"rae suburbs had been plagued by the parsimony ofcertVi* of his flock to such an extent that he decided t., a better pIa;) than remonstrance to produce na- tion.
