Edwards has fceen appointed in his steadL THE DISTURBANCES AT HXTOHVCK.-—1The first thing llticeable in the church of St. Jairesj s, Hatcham, on Sunday was its altered a^peaTance. caused by obedience to the order of Lord Penzance -forithe removal of certain •articles. During the past week if he six paintings in the panels of the chancel screen said-to have been executed 'by the Rev A. Tooth have been planed out; the screen 'which separated the Ladye Chapel from the body of the church has been removed the :~ood-beam which sup- ported a crucifix has been taken down the altar in the Ladye Chapel has been removetl; u- small shelf stuck against the wall, having-a crayon it, being placed in its stead, and the triptych has Also been taken away. The removal of these structures has given to the church an enlarged and less ornamented appearance. The excitement caused by the use of incense in the church And the correspondence on the subject which had ap- peared in the papers, attracted many strangers to the 10 o'clock communion service, but from first to last of the celebration incense was not burned, nor was a pro- cession formed, or a candle lighted. THE BANGOR CLERICAL .EDUCATION SOCIETY.—The Dean of Bangor, the Very Rev Henry T. Edwards, ex- plains the reason why th.3 council of the above society has been dissolved. He says :—-For seven years the society was under the (management of a somewhat numerous council, conflicting of laymen and clergymen in equiil numbers. A year ago it was decided extend its operations. A special appeal was made o the Churchmen of the diocese, and found a very liberal response. Within twelve months the income of the society has risen frem J6346 to £800 per annum. It was found by experience that the council, the members of which lived in various parts of the diocese, could not meet sufficiently often >to conduct the managements the society with efficiency. It was therefore decided, by a vote of the council itself, that the practical control of the society's operations should for the future be entrusted to the bishop of the diocese and assessors selec ed by him at own discretion. The dissolution of the council, therefore, is due not to a decrease, but rather to a very large increase, in the resources of:the society, and the ceneequent necessity for a less cum- brous and more effective management. I may add that at the present time 14 of the society's senior alumni., all of whom are being educated at Oxford or Cambridge, are residing in Bangor for several weeks of their iong vacation, with a view to receivingunder my own charge special preparation for ministerial work in this Welsh diocese. The resltsof the society's operations aremost encouraging. We have every reason to believe that its influence will prose at no distant period to be efthe highest value to the Welsh Church."

A Standard Rome telegram saw. active secret corresjs^ndence is being carried on between the Vatican and tfce [principal clerical personages In FrAnce respect- ing tire-candidate to succeed Marshal. MacMahon. TURKEY, While General Todleben was sneaking at the close of a review on Saturday he was fired at by a young Greek araaeed with a pistol, but the old general escaped un- hart, and the Greek was arrested. The BRITISH FLEET.—InstrucJfcions have been received by. Sir Austen Layard front England with regard to the British fleet. The vessels are to leave the Sea of Marmora following the withdrawal of the Russian troops, and the latter began te embark on Wednesday. BATOUM.—The commander of the Turkish garrison in Batoum has announced to the inhabitants that the I.Russians will enter the Tuesday next. Although tihe Turkish garrison has no intention of disputing the entry of the Russians, the Lazes are posted in three divisions in positions which command the approaches to the town, and where they intend to oppose the advance ■ of the Muscovite*. RUSSIAN ATROCITIES.—The Telegraplt's Pera corres- pondent has ascertained from members of the Rhodope Commission that the insurrection of the Pomaks con- tinues, that Russian officials recognise it, and address Midhat Bey officially an Commander-in-chief of the national Pomak army. This fact, if Prince Labanoff's report of the revolt is to be believed, has been sup- pressed. The Russians -are gathering in the harvest in the neutral zone between the outposts, and fire upon Moslems who may venture within range; the crops harvested belong to the Mussulman population who have been driven to the mountains. As to the Rhodope Commission, the official reports contain fearful lists of the acts of cruelty perpetrated by the Russian soldiery: Turks were burnt by scares in barns, pregnant women were ripped open, and other females were smeared with tar and burnt. The Times remarks that a few weeks more of Russo-Bulgarian misrule would go far to clear away one entire class øf the population. CYPRUS. Sir Garnet Wolseley has requested Sir A. H. Layard to send to the island Turkish refugees of the labouring class. AUSTRIA, THE OCCUPATION OF BOSNIA.—In Vienna there is a widespread belief that the Austro-Hungarian troops have practically to meet a combination of Turkey, Servia, and Montenegro, though there are official denials. This belief has caused depression in Francis Joseph's capital, while in Pesth there is great excite- ment consequent of the losses sustained by the Hun- garian portion of the army of occupation. The Vienna Cabinet is charged with attempting the extermination of the Magyars by thus sending them to slaughter.— On Friday the Bosnian insurgents attacked the Austrians near Doboj, and, although they were repulsed, it was at the cost of great loss to the Austrians. The insurgents are also fortifying one of the towns in their possession. General Philippovich is reported to have said that he would require 150,000 men to accomplish the work assigned him. Three Austrian regiments, containing a number ot Servians, which formed a part of the army of occupation, became mutinous, and every tenth man taken by list was shot. This did not stop the disaffection, and after some more executions the regi- ment was sent back to Austria as prisoners. The Servian Government has issued stringent regulations against afisistallce being rendered to the Bosnians; nevertheless, through private hands in Servia, it is believed that ammunition is still received, coming from ports in the JEgean. Reinforcements are being hastened to Bosnia from all parts of the Austrian Empire and strong forces have been assigned to protect the Hun- garian, Servian, and other frontiers. Thousands of Christian insurgents are reported to be flocking to the standard of the old leader Peko Paulovich in Herze- govina, in consequence of the severe measures taken by General Philippovich.—The capture of Serajevo has been followed by a temporary lull in active operations. The rumour is revived that a convention has bedn agreed upon between Turkey and Austria, which is to be signed in a few day* but the feeling excited in Austria by the defence of Serajevo is such that an earnest cry is being raised against the Hag of that country floating beside the Turkish Crescent from Serajevo Castle, which is one of the points insisted upon in the draft Convention. GERMANY. DECAPITATION OF HODEL.—Hodel, who attempted to assassinate the German Emperor in May last, was executed last week. He preserved up to the last moment the insolence which had characterised him throughout. INDIA. THK ENGLISH MISSION TO CABUL. The Calcutta correspondent of the Times telegraphs General Sir Neville Chamberlain is expected to arrive at Simla on Friday, and will there await the Ameer's reply to the proposal to receive an English mission at Cabul. The attitude of sulky hostility which the Ameer has now for so long maintained towards the Indian Government renders the despatch of this mission very critical, and imperatively requires that the negotiations which is now attempted to re-open should be handled with the utanost delicacy and circumspection. No such import- ant errand has been projected since Sir Alexander Buxne's mission in 1837. UNITED STATES. Yellow fever is causing havoc as well as scare in the Crescent City and other parts of the Southern States of America. A New Orleans telegram reports 115 new cases and 47 deaths in that city, and 13 deaths at Memphis, while at Grenada people are dying without medical attendance. Teke-IBLe RAILWAY ACCIDENT.—The most fatal railway calamity that has occurred in America for the past two years is described in the New York papers of August 8th. The Great Southern express, from New York, just after crossing the Ohio river, met, whilst rounding a curve, a freight train going at full steam. Breaks and reversal of the engines did little to mitigate the crash which ensued, both locomotives instantly toppling over the embankment.. The postal car was smashed, and three of its four occupants instantly killed. The smoking car, with thirty sleeping emigrants, was crushed, said six of them killed, all the remainder being injured. The next car was occupied by ladies and children, most of whom were mutilated, and some killed. The utter darkness and absence by death of all the officials made the terror and confusion the greater, and a long time elapsed before help was obtained. Fourteen corpses were then taken out of the wreck, and several persons crashed almost beyond hope. AFRICA. THE RAFFIR REBELLION.—Advices from Cape Town si&te that fighting is still going on between the cojoaists and the rebels in South Africa. The latter have not yet Availed themselves of the amnesty offered them aa it w expected they wld have done, but their hesita- tion ie attributed to the fact that their chiefs are ex- cluded from its benefits. Several recent outrages have been committed by the natives, and the position of affairs eeamit to be a grave one.
Errs's COCOA.—GEATEFOX AND COJIFOETINO.— "By a. thorough knowledge of the aural lawt- which govern the operations of digestion and nutri- tion, and by a careful application of the line pro- perties of welLselected cocoa, Mr Epps has provided our breakfast tables with a delicately flavoured beverage which may save us many heavy doctors.' bills.

THE DIOCESAN SOCIETIES.
THE DIOCESAN SOCIETIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. SIR,-I see a statement in your paper for last week that Llanfairtalhaiarn contributed nothing last year towards the Diocesan Societies. I beg to state that I sent between January and June, 1878, to the treasurer the following sums:- .t s. d.

THE FRIEND OF THE FOREIGNER,
THE FRIEND OF THE FOREIGNER, The following article is explanatory of the ques- tion which we last week referred to in an editorial note. It so aptly describes the position which the Liberals have taken up, which is such a striking reproductiou oi the tactics of the party seventy years ago, that the article will be read with interest All able article in the Nineteenth Century warns Mr Gladstone and his friends of the dangerous line of opposition to which they are committing themselves. Seventy years ago, when the Ministry of All the Talents was driven from power, after failing to vindicate the national interests against Bonaparte, England was com- mitted to that single-handed struggle for the liberties of Europe, which has just been averted by the genius and courage of Lord Beaconsfield. Furious at their defeat, the whole party rushed into a malignant and unpatriotic opposition to the Government. By standing up for every country except their own, they acquired the name of •l Friends of the Foreigner," and from that moment their return to office was an impossibility. The nation fought itself out of its difficulties under Tory guidance, and the Liberals expiated their want of patriotism by a long detention in their bitterest purgatory—exclusion from place. Mr E. D. J. WilsoD, the writer of the article we refer to, and, we presume, a Liberal himself, com- plains that u the Opposition at the present day has reproduced with painfully-curious exactitude H the errors which shattered the Whig party two generations ago and established the supremacy of the Tories for a quarter of a century." The parallel is really striking. Then it was a French despot, as it is now the Russian, whom the Friends of the Foreigner never ceased to defend aud adu- late. Brougham raved, as Mr Gladstone now rates, against the selfish doctrine of British in- terests. The war in the Peninsula was pursued with as much jealousy of national success, and as much solicitude, for the national foo, as have been just exhibited in the recent debates. The Edin- burgh fleciew denounced the victory of Talavera as an imposture aud Lords Grey and Grenville were not ashamed to repeat the outrage in Par- liament. The City actually protested against Wellington's peerage Jeffrey predicted we should never see our men back again and some of the faction opened a traitorous correspondence with the enemy to help out the prophecy. Napoleon knew all that passed in Euglaud he read the London papers and was told that we were trem- bling for our army in Spain. Convinced that we should only be too glad to accept any peace he might dictate, he was determined to u drive the H leopards into the ocean." When Sheridan separated himself from his party like Roebuck, his lofty oratory was sneered at, and it was hinted he might have cause for his patriotic zeal. Brougham lost all patience with the trash and twaddle that talked of supporting Ministers when their measures deserved it how was the party to be kept together ? Lord Grey deplored that the people had gone crazy over the victory of Vittoria. The Treaty of Vienna was treated to hole-picking criticism now lavished on the Treat} of Berlin. It could not last a twelvemonth though, as a matter of fact, it ensured the peace of Europe for forty years. Dr Parr proclaimed the English Government the real and implacable dis- turbers of European peace he could nut go to bed without praying for the success of Bonaparte. Lord Byron, who could fight for Greece, did not disguise his sorrow for the battle of Waterloo and Robert Hale, in the unpatriotism of Dissent, lamented that crowning victory as putting back the clock of the world." In short, the Opposition seventy years ago was a marvellous forecast of the Opposition to-day. The same sneering depreciation of English arms and iuterests the same feverish anxiety for foreign sensibilities the same servility to despotism abroad, coupled with downright insolence to the Sovereign at home—in a word, the same subordin- ation of patriotism to party and personal jealousy, which now fires the eloquence of Mr Gladstone, and is duly echoed by his admirers in the Guardian and the Nonconformist-all this has appeared, and been judged, before. The existing generation have forgotten this discreditable passage in Liberal politics but the nation, true to itself, is even now re-sealing the exclusion of the Talents," who place their own arrogant pretensions above the honour of their Sovereign and the interests of the Empire. Lord Hartington's motion was intended to rally the motley erear who have succeeded to the place of the Greys and the Grenvilles, of Tierney, Romilly, Brougham, and Russell but the people do not fail to observe that the rally is again on the anti-national ground. To disparage England and prefer the foreigner, was the aim of every speaker on the Opposition side. The noble Marquis may have been as much ashamed, as Lord Grey was, of some of his followers. Mr Gladstone's endeavour to stir up the jealousies of France and Italy, and Sir Wilfrid Lawson's epithets of cutthroats and savages applied to the Qneen's Asiatic forces, could not have been agreeable to the heir of the House of Cavendish. Still, they expressed the pur- port and spirit of the resolution to which he lent his name. It had no other purpose than to lessen England's great position in Europe because it is due to a Tory Minister, and to impede the public service because it is administered by a political rival more successful than themselves. Ou such slippery inclines it is the fate of the highest minds always to follow the lowest. Mr Gladstone runs away with Lord Hartington, and both fall into the arms of Mr Chamberlain. The coarsest and meanest forms of selfishness always come to the front when the national greatness ceases to lead. Perhaps nothing can be lower than Mr Gladstone's exertions to enflame all Europe against us. Turkey and Greece are warned by turns of our perfidy; Austria is insulted, France is provoked to jealousy at our acquisition of Cyprus, and even Italia Irre- denta is pressed into the shumeful cause. No one should know Italy better than Mr Gladstone. He knows the insignificance of the Republican faction now seeking to discredit the Monarchy by a popu- lar outcry against the result of the Congress. He knows that the flame is fanned by the opposite faction in revenge for the triumph of the present Liberal Ministry. These political factions no more represent the Italian people than England is re- presented by the combination of Ritualists and Dissenters. Yet Mr Gladstone seizes onan "insane" clamour for other people's property, raised by two antagonist extremes for their own party purposes, as the voice of outraged Italy. He would incite a national hostility rather than miss any possible blow at his political rival. If Lord Baaconsfield's crushing retort should fail to put an extinguisher on this sort of oratory, the great Liberal party must expect to undergo at the hustings the fate to which it has doomed itself in the present Parlia- ment. An iudignant people has but one judgment for the Friends of the Foreigner.—John Bull.

THE COLLECTIONS IN DENBIGH…
THE COLLECTIONS IN DENBIGH CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. SIR,-Wbilst agreeing in the main with the letter signed Parishioner," which appeared in last week's Guardian, in reference to the above subject, yet there are one or two points to which I desire tQ call attention. The statement that S. David's Church, being a pew- rent church, is presumably self-supporting, that is, that the expenses of this church ttee not included in the general church expenses of the parish," whilst in the abstract correct, does not, it appears to me, convey the whole facts of the case; that is, if the inference is that being a pew-rent church," these rents necessarily make it self-supporting." Else how comes it to pass that on the second and fourth Sunday evenings, in every month, collections are made there for church expenses." Are those collections for St. David's only, or for the general parish expenses? Parishioner," it seems to me, strikes at the root of the evil when he says,If every congregation was col- lected from, there would be an increase in the amount collected; and those attending services who do not attend the Sunday morning English service would have opportunities of contributing given them." This is very true; but, somehow or other, the Welsh congregations in this parish seem to have been educated as regards Christian liberty in the following fashion :—"Now, all we require from you is that you will attend the Welsh services. We will place the best church in the parish at your disposal, we will light and warm it in winter free of expense to you. Come and receive all the good you can, for you shall receive it without money and without price. We ask you for nothing in return, for we compel the congregations at the English services to find all the funds, and thus let you off without expense." This is about what is done. The whole of the liabilities of St. Mary's Church fall, I believe, upon the English congregations. They are lectured about their liberality blamed for the smallness of the collections, but not a word of blame or exhortation is given to the Welsh congregation, whose services are by far the most expensive, because of the gas required during winter evenings. They are, indeed, a privileged set, but is it any marvel that the English congregations, knowing this, decline to pay for those who ought to be taught that they have responsibilities as well as privileges. Let the weekly offertory be put in force at the Welsh service, let the worshippers give one penny per head only, and then with the present English collections, we shall hear no more of a deficiency in funds.—Yours respectfully, AKOTHER PARISHIONER.
