THE congested state of public business has been the all-absorbing subject of discussion in political circles during the last two or three weeks. The Education Bill, in spite of the splendid majority for the Second Reading, had to face a mass of amendments which could not possibly be disposed of before the middle of August. Under these circumstances the policy announced by Mr. BALFOUR on Monday last is probably the best that could be adopted, although it must be confessed that the postponement of the education question to the next Session is disheartening to the friends of religious education and to the Voluntary Schools. The withdrawal of the Bill is not wholly due to the obstruction of its oppon- ents, but in part to divisions among its friends, many of them considering the Bill too revolutionary in its character. The Unionist party was divided amongst itself, and from the first declaration of the schism, success for the Bill as a whole was im- possible. The sole chance of success was to drop the controversial clauses, and go for those parts which were generally acceptable, but the Cabinet Council of the previous Monday, decided against this course, and therefore there was no way out of it but with- drawal, and Mr. BALFOUR faced the House of Commons with the simple statement that the Bill would be withdrawn and that a substitute would be presented next session. We need hardly add that the intimation was received with hysterical delight by the Radical Opposition, but we cannot think that any scheme that can be bixmgfit forward by the Government will be more acceptable to Liberals and Radi- cals than the one now withdrawn. There is no doubt that the jubilation exhibited by the Opposition on Monday night was not because the scheme fell through one Radi- cal newspaper, more out-spoken than the rest, deplores the failure of the Bill, and hopes the Opposition will not claim the credit of killing it. Meanwhile, the country will naturally look forward to the resumption ot those measures which were sacrificed to the exi- gencies of the Education debate. The Irish Land Bill has yet to be faced, and promises to afford sufficient food for reflection until the season closes. Then there are the Agricultural Rating Bill and the Light Railways Bill to be advanced, as "ell as the Church Benefices Bill. Over, and above them all, however, we have the foreshadow- ing of a measure dealing with the reform of Parliamentary procedure, a reform which the events of the past month or two render absolutely vital to the good Government of the country. Parliament will do well to take up this great question for the legisla- tive machinery has already displayed a lamentable tendency to slow down to almost a complete stoppage, and unless something is done to control the abuse of party weapons, we do not see why the whole engine should not eventually be brought to a standstill.
NOTES BY THE WAY. 1 ts aims must be high, its vigilance keen, its care incessant. The field of work on which it is entering is one of promise, and should it be true to its mission we may confidently anticipate that success and fame will attend its efforts." This passage formed the concluding words in the reply of the Prince of Wales at the installation ceremony yesterday afternoon. The imtallation of his Royal Highness as Chancellor of the new University was carried out amid a scene of extraordinary brilliancy. The new University has been launched on its mission under circumstance of great favour; it proudly boasts as its head a Prince of the Royal blood, a Prince who takes his name from the land of the Cvmry, and who in all probability will be our future Sovereign. Under such fashionable auspices there is no reason for believing that the newUniversity will not be a powerful intellectual in- stitution, a potent factor in the making of the future characters of Welshmen, and an institution having unlimited influence far reaching and weighty in its nature. His Royal Highness was correct when lie said that the field of work on which it is entering is one of promise; we anticipate that its mission and the scope of its work will likely be an extensive one and this being so, there can be n > complaint of want of work from those who will form the working section of the University. That the aims of the University are calculated to reach the highest standard of intellectual study is accepted as a national consequence. There can be nothing in the educational world outside the limits of its scope,:and with a due regard to negligence and care its success as a University may be con- fidentially and fame attend its efforts. Tii" I.laTifv11in Town Council agreed on Tuesday to adopt t'.io Infections Diseases Notification A.et. T'e CAi-tiulit nre of the Church Missionary Society for the euiTen'c vear is estimated at £ 303,COO. Ten years aero the actual expenditure was £238,043; twenty years ago it was £ 211,756 and fifty years ago £ 93,635. According to the President of the Wesleyan Conference (Dr. Waller) there is a debt of £ 800,000 upon the property of the Connexion. The President says they also have a few endowments," but the buildings upon which the debt rests mean a con- siderable accumulation of wealth. ;jf, Since the committee meeting held in Oswestry with regard to the proposed light railway to Llan- gyncg, the secretary, Mr John Williams has issued y 11 circulars to the landowners in the district drawing their attention to the two schemes and asking for their support. Sir Watkin Willians-Wynn, Bart. has replied favouring the railway. The local can- vassers are working enthusiastically, but we under- stand that unless a large amount of financial aid is forthcoming, before the next meeting, from resi- dents in the district through which the line is proposed to be taken, the scheme will probably be dropped. The Prince and Princess of Wales, and the Princesses Victoria and Maud, on reaching Aber- ystwyth yesterday, were received with a Hoyal salute from the guns of H.M.S. Hermione" and H.M.S. "Bdlona," and the splendour of the dt-corative display in the streets and elsewhere, together with the presence of many thousands of visitors, gave evidence of truly national character of celebration. Formal installation of the Prince of Wales as Chancellor of the University, took place in the presence of a brilliant assemblage of University dignatories in academical robes, prelates, peers, heads of municipalities, and grad uates. On Sunday evening a most curious meeting was held at the Marble Arch. As everybody knows, there is a vast amount of open-air oratory in Hyde Park on Sunday afternoons. There arc stump orators of almost every shade of religious and political opinion. Some make themselves hoarse in denouncing the Pope. Others are vehement against capitalists. Some expatiate upon the wrongs of Ireland, and others upon the rights of labour. Socialism is championed in one corner, and the Deceased Wife's Sister in another. There is hardly any subject which agitates the mind of humanity that is not discussed and debated by Hyde Park orators. One nearly uniform feature of these alfresco assemblies is that at the close of the harangue a hat is sent round and contributions are demanded in aid of the cause," whatever it may be. Recently some of the stamp orators have made themselves rather more of a public nuisance than usual, and the police have interfered. Denouncers of the Pope have got into special difficulties through the resentment which their remarks have occasioned in the minds of combative Irishmen of the Catholic persuasion. The meeting at the Marble Arch was convened to protest against this police interference. The stump orators felt that their draft and their collections were in danger. and, sinking their differences, they unanimously demonstrated in favour of free speech. Whether foi the Pope or against the Pope, they felt that they were practically on the same lay and they united with singular enthusiasm in defending their common interests. President Kruger will have to employ someone else besides that smart young man Dr Leyds if he wishes to retain his reputation for moderation and good sense. Dr Leyds is evidently suffering from a swelled head." He conceives his trumpery little state to have attained the position of a great power and himself to have become an important personage in the world of diplomacy. The recent despatch penned by Leyds in the name of President Kruger to the High Commissioner calling upon the Government of her Britannic Majesty to take immediate steps to punish the Chartered Company is really a grotesque document and eminently cal- culated to effect the exact contrary of what its author desires. A few more such demands simi- larly worded and public opinion in England would be all but unanimously opposed to any inquiry into the mis-deeds of the directors of the Chartered Company being instituted. V The anniversary of Court Herbert Foresters, Chirbury, took place on Wednesday last, when after the service at church, dinner was as usual partaken of at the Herbert Arms Hotel.. In pro- posing the toast of the evening the chairman (Mr. E. H. Morris) offered two prizes to the mem- ber who would introduce the greatest number of new members during the next twelvemonths. He said that if influential men took an interest in such societies, they could be the means of reducing in a large degree, the number of paupers in our work- houses. From a statement made by the secretary (Mr. Breeden) the club seems to be in a fairly successful stat,t,. We have before us the balance sheet of the Newtown Football Club, for the season, 1895--6, from which it appears that the receipts amount to X342 4s 8d, the balance in the treasurer's hands being 133 3s Id. We notice that no payment for professionals appears on the balance sheet, and we understand that that expense has been borne by the worthy Captain (Mr. W. E. Pryce-Jones). Our readers will hear with regret of the death of the esteemed Vicar of Llan fair- Rev. T. Jeffrey Jones—which occurred yesterday, at the age of 66. We publish this week a full report of the cere- mony of laying the foundation stones of the new School at Bettws, which was performed yesterday week. We wish the Vicar (Rev. W. Gwynne- Vaughan), every success in his efforts to ob- tain the sum required for the work (£700) and congratulate him on having as a co-worker so warm-hearted a lady as Mrs Lewis-Andrew, whose generosity towards Bettws is so well known. We record in another column the funeral of Lieut.-Col. Lloyd-Verney, Clochfaen, by whose death the inhabitants of Llangurig and neighbour- hood have lost a valuable friend and the Church a staunch adherent. The loss of this gentleman will be keenly felt, and the vacancy caused by his demise will not easily be filled.

Pugh, Westbury. In the afternoon a children's service was held under the presidency of Mr R. Evans, Pwllyglo. Special hymns and anthems were rendered by the choir, conducted by Mr D. J.Jones, whilst the scholars gave recitations and dialogues, the Misses Venables (Oswestry) contributing duets. An address was given by Mr J. Pugh. The duties of accompanist were ably discharged by Mr C. E. Pugh.—On Tuesday afternoon a Sunday School Convention took place in the chapel, Rev T. R. Maland in the chair. A paper was read by Rev A. H. Kynaston, Newtown, which was followed by a discussion in which Rev G. T. D. Pidsley, Messrs D. J. Jones, R. Evans, J. Pugh, and T. Ashley took part. At the conclusion of the meeting the friends sat down to tea over which Mrs Crow and Mrs Ashley, assisted by Mrs Davies, Misses Whittington and Clara Davies, presided. This was followed by a meeting in the interest of Sunday Schools at which Mr T. S. Pryce took the chair. Addresses were delivered by Rev G. T. D. Pidsley, A. 11. Kvnaston, and T. Hunt (Connexional Sunday School secre- tary). A vote of thanks to the speakers, proposed by Rev T. ll. Malaiid, brought the meeting to a close. THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE POWIS HABITATION OF THE PRIMROSE LEAGUE. The annual meeting of rhis Habitation took place en Saturday evening. In the unavoidable absence of the Ruling Councillor, Cape Mytton took the chair. After the minutes of the last annual meeting were read the accounts of the past year were gone through, which showed a good balance in the bank. The re-election of the Ruling Councillor, Dame President, Treasurer, and Secretary, then took place, whilst a few changes occurred in the com- position of the Executive Council which was re- appointed. Misses Oweu and Hole were delegated to attend the Divisional Council on behalf of the Habitation. The delegates' report of the Grand Council meeting held in London having been given, the proceedings concluded with a vote of thanks to the Chairman.—During the course of the meeting, the Secretary presented the following report, for which a vote of thanks was accorded her on the motion of the Chairman REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDING APRIL 19TH, 1896. My Lord, Ladies, and Gentlemen,—I have much pleasure in presenting my annual report of the Powis Habitation. During the last 12 months we have enrolled 39 new associates, and two associates have been transferred to our Habitation. Many members have left the district and have left no address. Five have been transferred to other habi- tations and five members have died during the year. Our Habitation therefore now numbers 604 associates and 48 knights and dames total, 652 members. The Executive Council have met on four occasions to transact the business of the Habi- tation. We have held four public meetings during the winter—-two at Welshpool and one each at I Leighton and Castle Caereinion respectively. The three first mentioned were very successful, but unfortunately it was a very wet night for Castle Caereinion, which no doubt was the reason more people were not present. Leaflets have as usual been sent to the wardens for distribution. The wardens' and sub-wardens' books have all been sent in, and the accounts therein entered into the general register of the Habitation. As the pay- ment of the associates is so small it would be a great convenience, should they be changing their address during the year, if they would kindly let the wardens or myself know where they go to reside. I wish especially to mention that a mem- ber only retains liisleoilnection with the Habitation, and of course the privilege of attending any social evening or other gathering at members' prices, so long only as he or she pays the yearly tribute. I men tion this because it has come to my knowledge that some persons, who entered the Habitation years ago but have not continued the yearly tribute are very erroneously under the inipression they are members. I find also that non-members have obtained mem- bers' tickets for our social evenings, &c.; but I hope I have only to mention this matter to prevent members in future transferring their tickets to non-members, as such practices are in many cases most injurious to our Habitation. It has been mentioned by some of the Wardens that they have had the trouble to call two or three times in order to receive the small yearly tribute. It would be a very great convenience if associates would kindly pay their tribute early in the year so that the Wardens and Secretary should have plenty of time to make up their books before the 19th of April, that being the end of the Primrose League year. During the general election which took place last July, several ladies and gentlemen gave very valu- able assistance, and these members were presented with a special service clasp in recognition of their work. The two social evenings which took place in the Town Hall were very successful financially and otherwise, and a good balance is added to the amount already in the bank, which will make the Treasurer's accounts very satisfactory. The ban- ner, for which the Countess of Powis very kindly and generously provided the materials, and which two lady members of the Habitation have worked very beautifully, is now being completed in London and we hope to have it shortly, and I am sure the members of the Powis Habitation will be much delighted with it. The League now numbers 2,326 Habitations, and 1,320,774 members. We are all exceedingly sorry that our esteemed Ruling Coun- cillor and Dame President are not with us this evening, but trust that they may soon be restored to perfect health again. I have to offer my best thanks to the Executive Council and all who have so kindly assisted me during the year, and espe- cially to the Wardens and Sub-wardens, as upon the ability and zeal with which they discharge their duties depends in a large measure the success of the Habitation.—M. SHUKER, Hon. Sec.
ELLESMERE. CHORAL FESTIVAL.-On Thursday evening a grand choral festival was held in the Parish Church. There was a large attendance, the choirs taking part being Ellesmere, Criftins, Welshampton, Dud- leston, Prees, Whixall and Wem. Rev Walter Hazelhurst conducted and the united choirs num- bered close on 200 voices. The service opened with the processional hymn Let our choirs new anthem raise." Rev F. Grindrd intoned the service, and lessons were read by Rev H. Moody, Welshampton, and Rev J. P. Dixon, Dudleston. A very appropriate sermon was preached by the Rev. G. Lester, vicar of Shifnal, from the words God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth." The singing was greatly enjoyed; the solos in the anthem was taken by Mr J. S. Knight. Mr. Lewis Cascley presided at the organ. The service was brought to a close by the Benediction pronounced by the Vicar the Rev. A. E. Wauton, and the recessional hvmn, Daily, daily sing the praises."
OSWESTRY. Our representative in Oswestry is Mr ROBERT AITKEN, Oswald House, Oswald Road, to whom notice should be given of all events required to be reported in the COUNTY TIMES.

REMOVAL OF THE VICAR.-The vicariate of Leam- iugton, vacant by. the preferment of Rev W. C. Furneaux to the living of Mortlake, has been ae- cepted by Rev Cecil Hook, vicar of Oswestry. Mr Hoek is a son of the late Dr Hook the well- known Dean of Chichester. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1867, and he was ordained in 1869. His first curacy was at St John's Bristol, and he was Rector of All Saint's Chichester, 1871-76, and Vicar of All Soul's (Hork Memorial Church), Leeds 1876-91. The nett value of the Oswestry living is' X225 and of the Leamington living nearly £400. CONCERT AND PRESENTATION, concert was given in the Albert Road Mission Room, on Monday, in aid of the children's treat. The Ma^or (Mr C. E. Williams) presided, and there was a large atten- dance.

Mr. Davies acknowledged the tfift in suitable terms.
LLANYMYNECH. CONSECRATION OF NEW BURIAL GROUND.—On Friday of last week the piece of ground which has lately been added to Llanymynech Parish Church- yard was formally consecrated by the Bishop of St Asaph. Previous to the ceremony a confirmation service was held in the Church, after which a pro- cession was formed of the clergy in their robes and the public, which marched round the ground headed by the Bishop of the Diocese, who repeated Psalms xxxix and xix. The Bishop was then followed to a small table in the centre of the plot The Rector, Rev H. Wynne Jones, Rev Elias Owen, Llanyblodwel; Prebendary Matthews, Llandysilio; Rev H. Wynne Jones, Wrexham Rev D. Jones, Llanfechan Rev W. Bevan, Llanymynech Rev C. Hook, Rev T. Redfern, and Rev. W. PownaH Owen, Oswestry. and by Dr Manning, Messrs W. H. Spaull (Oswestry), E.

Ward, Mrs and Miss Moon, Mr and Mrs Rees (the School), Mrs Bevan, Miss Fletcher (Wim- bourne), Mrs Gill, Miss Edwards, etc. The Bishop then declared the ground added to the churchyard as consecrated ground. The deed was then signed and attested by Rev. Cecil Hook as Rural Dean, the Rev. Ll. Wynne Jones as Rector, and Messrs E. Fox Davies and R. Bromley as churchwardens. The consecration prayer having been offered by the Bishop, the ceremony closed, after the singing of the hymn, Brief life is here our portion," by the pronouncing of the Benediction. A number of the clergy afterwards lunched at the Rectory.
LLANFYLLIN. WELSH SHEEP.—We are very pleased to find that at the Royal Agricultural Society's Show, held at Leicester, this week, the first prize for a two- shear ,->r shearling Welsh ram, was awarded tJ Mr. J. Marshall Dngdale, of Llwyn, Llanfyllin. FIRK. Lnte on Munday night, a tire broke out in Bridge-Street, in some vacant cottages belonging to Mr. W. Jones, Glandwr. By the assistance of neighbours, who came readily to the rescue, the fire was extinguished about three o'clock a.m. The damage was not great. TOWN COUNCIL, Ttiesdiv.-Prement Aldermen C. R. Jones (presiding), John Jones and Ellis Roberts, Councillors D. Parry, John Ellis. Wm. Jones, Thomas Roherts, Wm. Ellis, Roger Edwards, with Mr W. A. Pughe (clerk). Mrs Davies, the Eagles, made application for the use of the Town Hall, on 21st July. The application was granted. Councillor Edwards directed attention to the hurdles at the market. The contractor left them on the street instead of storing them away as directed by his contract-The Clerk explained that the lessee asked for a hand cart which the Council refused to supply him with. It was decided to write to the contractor on the subject. Pians and specifications for the glazing of the Town Hall, were submitted and approved of. The estimated cost is £ 47. It was agreed on the motion of Councillor Ellis Roberts, seconded by Councillor Wm. Jones, to submit the plans to the Eisteddfod Committee for I approval, the Committee having agreed to bear some of the cost. The Surveyor reported that about 80 feet of the wall near West Lodge had fallen, and it was decided to call the County Surveyor's atten- tion to it. The Clerk read a circular from the Local Government Board, asking the Council to adopt the Infectious Diseases' Notification Act, 1886. Coun- cillor Roger Edwards, proposed the adoption of the Act, which was seconded by Alderman John Jones, and adopted unanimously. Councillor Roger Edwards gave notice that he would move at next meeting that the minutes of the Council be printed each month. This was all the business. PETTY SESSIONS. Tuesday.—Before Messrs C. R. Jones (chairman) and John Jones. D.C.C. Crowden was also present.] oli ii Williams was charged by the Master of the workhouse (Thomas I Aubrey Jones) with refusing to complete his alloted task.

Meredith said the prisoner had con- fessed taking the money and made a statement as to how he had disposed of it. He had bought a watch and hid some of the money in the ground. P.S. Meredith found two sums of money in the spot described by the accused. Fdward Charles Burnes, Llanrhaiadr, deposed having sold a watch to the prisoner for 18s. P.C. Roberts, Penybont, said be apprehended prisoner at Llanrhaiadr and charged him with the offence. The prisoner then stated he took £2 out of the box and 10s which he had received at Oswestry for his father and which he had kept.

A large number of valuable presents were received. DEATH OF THE VICAR. It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the death of Rev T. Jeffrey Jones, Vicar of Llanfair, which took place unexpectedly at 2 a.m. yesterday morning at the age of 66.

The day opened out gloriously and but for a shower or two of rain during the afternoon, which however did not materially mar the pro- ceedings, the weather was very fine. The centre of attraction in the afternoon was a cricket match, which appears in our cricket column. About 6 30 a continent of the Newtown Silver Band plaved on TO the field, and on their appenranee dancing was indulged in in full swing until dusk, Mr U. lL Rhodes proving a most efficient M.C. The selcction of music was very pretty, awl;1 1Jw:-t enjoyable time was spent. During the afternoon Sir Pryce and Lady Pryce-Jones drove out to The field, and interested themselves in witnessing some tennis playing, and the cricket match, thev appearing just at the critical moment, when the homesters were just reaching the Otterspool score. Suitable refreshments were supplied on the ground by Mr. T. Jones. Blue Bell Inn. Thus, this happy annual event was spent in the most enjoyable manner and every one that was favoured with the holiday, and many others on the field, no doubt went to their respective homes wishing the hero of the hour many such anniversaries of his obtaining Knighthood, and thanking the firm, of which he is the respected head, for their consideration in giving the holiday again this year. THE ROYÅL YIIT.At Newtown the station had been tastefully decorated for the occasion, under the able superintendence of Mr. G. Shute, assisted by Sir. John Morris.

J. Pilot. The plants were sent by Sir Pryce Pryce- Jones with his usual generosity. The Royal Welsh Warehouse as seen from the station, was gay with banners, whilst stretching across the road from the top storey of the Warehouse to that of the new Warehouse was bunting bearing the words Welcome to the Prince and Princess of Wales."

The proceedings throughout were of a very orderly character.

MACHYNLLETH. A LODGING HOUSE ROW.—A WOMAN STABBED. At a late hour on Thursday night P.C. D. P. Davies (Dinas Mawddwy), who was on duty, was informed that a rather serious row had taken place at a lodging-house owned by a person named Roberts, and that a woman, the wife of a travelling labourer, had been stabbed. He at once proceeded to the lodging-house and found the information to be correct. The husband of the woman was in bed at the time, but his wife had been taken to another house close by, where she was found with her left arm badly gashed and bleeding profusely. P.C. Davies arrested the man and took him to the Police, Station. The woman was also taken to the station and Dr. A. O. Davies, who was called in, attended to her wounded, arm, and having stitched up the the wound bound the arm in a sling. From the information supplied by the keeper of the lodging- house it appears that the couple came in early in the evening and began to quarrel amongst them- selves. They were told that unless they became quiet their money would be returned to them and they would have to leave. They promised to obey the request and presently went upstairs to bed. They had hardly got upstairs when the woman w as heard to scream and then begin moaning. The lodging-house keeper immediately proceeded upstairs, and he there found the woman lying on the ground bleeding from a wound in her arm. In reply to a question she said that her husband bad done it, and the proprietor of the house said that he would go for a policeman, at the same time taking the woman away from the room. A careful search of the bedroom failed to discover any knife, neither were the police successful in finding any instrument on the man with which he could have committed the crime. He gave his name as Daniel James, and that of his wife as Ellen James. On being charged on suspicion of having unlawfully wounded his wife, he said that he was as innocent as a newly born babe and had never touched her on that night. The parties are known to the Aberyst- wyth police as having figured in a case recently heard in the local court in which the woman ac- cused her neighbours of having kept a shebeen. They had been staying at Machynlleth for a fort- night or so, and the man has been engaged in assisting to construct the decorations. He is de- scribed as having German blood in his viens, and, like his wife, is the wrong side of fifty.—The case was adjourned. ARRIVAL OF THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF WALES LAST NIGHT. The royal train left Aberystwyth at 4 55, being forty minutes late. It arrived at Slachynlleth about 5 30 outside the station, there was a fair sprinkling of spectators and several ladies occupied the o-rand stand. The Corris Baud assembled out- side the station and played a selection of music as the royal train entered the station. The Princess was the first to leave the train foilowed by the Prince and the two Princesses. They at once entered their carriage and drove away to the Plas. The streets were thickly lined with people who bad come in from the surrounding districts and the occupants of the royal carriages were loudly cheered as they entered the town. The suite, including the Marquisof London- derry, Lady Aline, the Earl of Powis, Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, Lord Herschell, Lord Herbert and Lord Henry Vane-Tempest, the lady-in-waiting, and Sir Francis Knollys.

AX UNREHEARSED INCIDENT. A pretty little incident was witnessed during the proceedings at Welshpool Miss Violet Ethel Denniss, the little four-year-old daughter of Mr C. S. Denniss, presented the Princess with a lovely bouquet. She then approached His Royal High- ness, and with a winsome smile proferred to the Prince a fine specimen of a lily. The Prince grace- iously accepted the gift, and remarked Well, if you give me this lily, I must give you my flowers," and suiting the action with the word he thereupon took from his buttonhole a bunch of flowers, and having substituted for them the newly-presented lily handed the buttonhole to the little maiden. Miss Dennis responded with a Thank you, your Royal Highness," whereupon the Princess brought the incident to a close by saluting the maid's pretty lips with a Royal kiss. ♦

It is now said that 27,000 persons were drowned in the recent inundation of a province in Northern Japan. The revolt in Mashonaland is spreading day by day, and the reports published testify to the increasing peril in which the white settlers are involved. It is reported that Fort Charter is surrounded, and that the natives have captured an ammunition convoy and beaten back a British farce with loss. The rebels" are said to have fought exceedingly well."
