Williams, from The Captain of the Vulture, an early novel by Miss Braddon. THE MASSACHUSETTS HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICAL SOCIETY declare against the use of butter, which they aver contains no element of food required by the human family." THE Independance Belge says that the French government has just made a present to the Roman go- vernment of 20,000 muskets, 6,000 of which are Chas- sepots, an act of generosity which the Belgian paper thinks will not be over agreeable to Italy. THE NUMBER of private bills which will come before Parliament during the forthcoming session will exceed 300 and amongst this large number of private schemes will be found three legitimate direct lines to Brighten. THE TRIBUNAL OF PRAGUE has just condemned a priest named Hauscka, secretary to the archbishop, and preacher to the University, to a fortnight's im- prisonment for exciting his congregation to revolt by a sermon against civil marriage.

THREE SPECIMENS—one male and two females -of a bird rarely seen in England, the parrot crossbill, have been observed in the neighbourhood of Great Malvern. Their appearance is considered an indication of approaching severe weather. THE MARQUIS DE CLERMONT TONNERRE has let his mansion, Rue Lascoges, to the eldest son of the Viceroy of Egypt, for £ 1,500 a year, which is a fresh instance of the increasing value of houses in Paris, as last year the same house only let for £1,000 a year.

THE STATEMENT to the effect that the claims on the North-Western Company arising out of the Aber- gele accident have been settled is contradicted. A firm of solicitors write to the Times that they have three actions now pending against the company, and that they are aware of another claim of between £ 20,000 and >230,000 unsettled. ANOTHER NEW GUNPOWDER.—A new kind of gunpowder has been invented by a M Halm. It con- sists of 367-5 parts of chlorate of potash, 168-3 of sulphuret of antimony, 18 parts ot charcoal, and 46 parts of spermaceti This gunpowder can be conveyed without any danger of an explosion, provided the chlorate be added only at the moment of using it, in the proprtion of 46 parts of that substance to 29 of the others. THE Sporting Oazette announces that Ladv Elizabeth, The Earl, Equerry, and The Duke, the perty of the late Marquis of Hastings, will be brought to the hammer early in December. The Earl, for whom a large foreign offer has been made, is not unlikely, how- ever, to be disposed of in the interim. It is reported that Mandrake and Paul Jones have been sold to go abroad. IT IS STATED that an aggregate of about 1,000 candidates are appealing to the constituencies of the United Kingdom, and of those 420 are Tories, the re- mainder (580) being supporters of Mr. Gladstone. 481 members of the late Parliament have offered themselves for re-election, and of these 31 appeal to new con- stituencies. Seventy-seven old members have retired altogether frcaa Parliamentary life, There, are 525 new candidates. Two IRISH GIRLS who were plucking a cabbage in Milford, Massachusetts, preliminary to the celebra- tion of Hallow E'en, were fired on by the owner of the garden, also an Irishman, and one of them, by name Bridget Murray, was killed. A REQUISITION having been presented to Mr. Chambers, the present Lord Provost of Edinburgh, to allew himself to be nominated for re-election as Lord Provost, his lordship has consented, and will doubtless be re-elected unanimously. LORD DARCY OSBORNE, in shooting the other day, at Thorp Perrow, Yorkshire, made a very re- markable shot. His lordship fired at a hare in the long grass, killed it, and going to pick it up, to his astonish- ment found five partridges, all killed by the same shot. THE FOLLOWING gentlemen have been nomi- nated for the Rectorship of St. Andrew's University, vacant by the termination of Mr. John S. Mill's term of office-Mr. Disraeli, Sir R. Murchison, Sir John Hersehel, Mr. Ruskin, Mr. Browning, and Mr. Charles Dickens. THE RECONSTRUCTION of the grand cupola of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem has just been termi- nated in perfect conformity with the tenor of the pro- tocol signed on the 5th of Sept., 1862, at Constantinople, by the Ambassadors of France and Russia, and by the Grand Vizier, Aali Pacha. IT MAY, we believe, be stated that the commis- sion at present sitting has determined to abolish the Oxford Circuit, and to make certain alterations in the Midland to abolish the Home Circuit, and extend the London sittings into August; and to give Lancashire a circuit of its own. A FIRE BROKE OUT the other day at Sutton House, Shrewsbury, occupied by Mrs. Phillips, her daughter, and two servants. The flames spread with fearful rapidity, and the inmates only escaped with difficulty in their night dresses. The house was com- pletely gutted. THE THREE BOYS who lately attacked" and en- deavoured to stab another lad near Manchester, have been sentenced to a rather extraordinary punishment. ihey are to be imprisoned for a month, flogged with a birch rod every day during that term, and, at its expira- tion, sent to a reformatory for five years.

A MAN named Henry Perkins, whose home was in London, died at Leeds the other day. He was en- gaged as the showman of a giant horse on exhibition at the fair, and the animal gave him a tremendous kick in the abdomen. He was removed to the infirmary imme- diately, where he died. THE INQUIRY into the recent collision at the Nore was concluded on Saturday, the decision of the Court being that the collision was due to the careless- ness of John M'G. Wallace, master, and W. H. Hendry, first mate of the North Star, the steamer which ran down the Leitchardt, and their certificates were ordered to be suspended. THE John Butt says that the Worshipful Com- pany of Salters, who, through their large estates in the North of Ireland, are specially connected with the Protestants of Ulster, have just unanimously elected the Bishop of Oxford a member of their company an honour which he alone of the bench shares with the venerable Irish Primate. KING CHARLES XV. of Sweden has recently refused to sign a death warrant against a woman con- victed by one of the tribunals of poisoning. His Majesty declared, at the same time, that for the future no capital execution should take place in his kingdom, and that if the death penalty were not abolished by law he desired it to cease in fact. IN THE MIDST of a long list of subscriptions in the Temps to the Baudin monument of not more than 2fr., 3fr., or 5fr. there appears one of 200f. from M. Henri Rochefort, editor of the Lanterne. M.

THE CONVOCATION of the prelates and clergy of the Province of Canterbury was on Fridaj dissolved in the Bounty-office, Westminster, pursuant to the Royal writ, by the Vicar-General, Sir Travers Twiss, under a commission from the Dean and Chapter of Can- terbury, guardians of the spiritualities during the vacancy of the Archiepiscopal See. MR. JOHNSON, the President of Bridewell Hos- pital, attended Divine Service at the Foundling Hospital on Sunday morning, and after the conclusion of the service was seen to stagger and fall upon the floor. He was picked up, and a medical gentleman, who was quickly in attendance, pronounced life to be quite ex- tinct. INTERESTING ANTIQUARIAN DISCOVERY.— Some soldiers, in digging a trench at Hildesheim, found about 50 vases, cups, candelabras, and other objects in massive silver and richly chased they are evidently the work of Greek artists, and apparently date from the time of Augustus. Among them is a goblet with orna- ments in relief representing Hercules strangling two serpents; and a second, with satyrs, bacchantes, and other similar figures. DISTRESS [N WOOLWICH.—The recent action of the authorities in discharging great numbers of work- men who had been employed in the Royal Arsenal Dock- yard, &c., has resulted in great distress to some hundreds of families. In a very short time 1,200 have been dis- charged from the arsenal alone and, on the Military Clothing Store being removed to Pimlico, between five and six hundred women will have to seek fresh employ- ment. JOHN DAY V. AiDmxRALdous.-There is now every probability that this action will come into court, notice of trial having been given to the Admiral's solici- tors, Messrs. Walters, Young, and Walters. The case has been set down to be heard at the end of this month or the beginning of December in the Court of Queen's Bench. Messrs. Vallance and Vallance are the solicitors concerned for John Day, and the damages are laid at £ 5,000.—Sporting Life. IMPROVED GOVERNMENT FOR THE METRO- POLIS. With a view of early action in the new Parlia- ment, on the now most urgent question of the govern- ment of the metropolis, the Metropolitan Municipal Association have given the requisite Parliamentary no- tices for their bills to establish municipalities, and a corporation for London, with the intention of proceeding, at the earliest opportunity the farms of Parliament will permit, in their discussion. BIRMINGHAM DOG SHOW.—The list of entries for the annual exhibition of sporting and other dogs, to be held at Birmingham simultaneously with the ap- proaching cattle show, is now completed. In the divi- sion for sporting dogs there are 504 entries, and in that for dogs not used in field sports, 302, making a total of 806. Last year the total number was only 691, being 460 sporting and 231 non-sporting dogs. THREATENING LORD How.E.-An elderly man named John Hill has been committed for trial by a magistrate at Leicester, for sending a letter, in which he threatened to murder the whole family, to Lord Howe. No motive was assigned but the prisoner had lived on a farm under the noble lord, and had preVli nsly suffered two years' imprisonment for making use of similar threats. REQUIEM MASS FOR THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY.—The following account of a recent func- tion in a ritualistic place of worship we copy from the Church Nes :—« St. Clement's, Cambridge.—On Tues- day a requiem mass was sung at this church for the re- S°jUl tte ]ate Archbishop of Canterbury. Both then and at the ordinary dailv mass a large number of the faithful were present to iorav for the deceased prelate. THE LONDON THEATRES are drawing fr°m music halls rather largely. Two masculine comic singers are now assisting in two sensational dramas. Mr. E Marshall goes to the Globe Theatre. Miss Kate Santley is now performing at the Queen's, in the burlesque of The Stranger. Miss Nelly Power will appear at Covent Garden Theatre. Miss H. Coveney goes to Drury Lane and an engagement with Louie Sherrington has lately been made for another of the west-end theatres. AN OLD FASHION REVIVED.-The present geaSon in London will probably be chiefly remem- d on account of its having witnessed the reintro- d r n of powdered hair. Perhaps the ladies who so S'L to grace themselves were moved by some dim sense of propriety in choosing the opera-house as the scene of their first experiment; for the practice of powdering the hair is said to owe its origin to certain ballad singers who whitened their heads in order to lend point to the wit of their songs. However, powdered hair has again made its appearance amongst us and, on Monday evening at least, certain graceful young persons I were to be seen in Covent Garden boxes, looking not unlike,a living portrait of Madame the Marchioness de i Pamjpadaur,—London jgmm* THE COBRA POISON.-In an interesting pam- phlet on the cobra poison, Dr. Francis has called atten- tion to the dislike which cobras and other venomous snakes have to emsote, and he suggests that it or car- bolic acid shgvld be freely used in homesteads and in the neighbourhood of cattle-stalls or sheds, to keep the reptiles away, seeing that there is good reason to think that the milk of animals bitten by cobras may convey the poison to those individuals who make use of it.- The Lancet. INTERESTING SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERT.—The Master of the Mint, Mr. Graham, has discovered that the metals palladium, platinum, and iron have the property of absorbing a hundred and even sometimes a thousand times their weight of gas. It appears that the gas is not merely held in the cells of the metal, but in- corporated therewith, for a piece of palladium gave off no gas whatever, though enclosed for two months in an exhausted chamber. Mr. Graham lighted on his discovery while analysing a piece of meteorite. A LEGAL DILEMMA.—In Chicago a fellow named Reed was arrested, charged with passing two ten dollar counterfeit notes. The charge was fully proved, whereupon Reed proved that he had stolen the bills from a comrade. The fact that he stole the money was considered evidence that he supposed the money to be good, and the fact that the money being counterfeit was not money in the eyes of the law, it was contended that no offence was committed in the stealing of it, and he was forthwith discharged. SHOCKING OCCURRENCE.—The driver of the last train from Warminster to Salisbury, a few nights ago, when about a mile from Heytesbury, felt a jerk as if some obstruction had been placed on the line, and on arriving at the Heytesbury station was alarmed at finding blood and particles of flesh on the wheels, and one of the iron-guards of the engine broken. Assistance was at ence sent down the line, where the body of Mr. Elling, relieving officer of Sutton, was found almost cut in two, and otherwise horribly mangled. NARROW ESCAPE OF A GUNBOAT. Her Majesty's gunboat Starling, while on her way from Hong-Kong to Labuan, was caught in a typhoon, which carried away her boats and dismasted her, and the crew were obliged to throw overboard part of their coal and cannon-balls. After being 35 days out, Captain Bradshaw found himself about 20 or 30 leagues from Cape St. James and, half his crew being laid up sick, he resolved to put into Saigon, which he did, and arrived there on the 6th ult., having been towed up the river by the French war transport L'Aveyron. A NEW SENSATION.—They are going to bring out a new drama in Paris at the Theatre du Chatelet- the title of it, Theorodus; and two new actors are to appear in it-a couple of serpents. Horses have been brought on the stage, and dogs, and pigs, and parrots, and cockatoos, and bears, and even those familiar insects to whose bite the Prime Minister once compared the national debt. But this, surely, is the first appearance of snakes upon any stage. No doubt, ere long, we shall have to hail in London these interesting debutants.— Daily News. THE BELGIAN TIR NATIONAL.—The prizes won by the English volunteers at the Tir National, Brussels, have been forwarded to the Anglo-Belgian Prize Fund Committee, through the Belgian minister, but they are detained at the Dover Custom-house for the compliance with some requisite formalities required for their being passed free of duty. The hon. secretary to the Anglo-Belgian Prize Fund, Colonel Beresford, on the eve of his departure for an absence of some months on the Continent, resigned, and his place is likely to be shortly filled by a gentleman pos- sessing high qualifications for the office. SHAMPOOING SHEEP.—The sheep-farmers in Australia have a shrewd eye for business. Some of the leading men among them have recently spent con- siderable sums of money in the construction of apparatus for sheep-washing with hot water. From water at a temperature of 110°, into which they are first plunged, the sheep -are floated to a tank of cold water, where the cleansing is completed with a kind of douche. So much grease is taken out of the fleeces by this process, that henceforth Yorkshire will be willing to give a better price for the woel. LATE THE OTHER NIGHT a woman dressed in black passed through the toll on the Surrey side of Waterloo-bridge, and at once proceeded to the second recess on the east side of the footway, where she seated herself, and remained sobbing and crying. At length she got up on the seat, and threw herself into the river. As the tide was running rapidly up, she must have been carried under the arch. She at once disappeared, for no signs of her could be seen by those who were almost instantly on tte spot. A tollman knew her as being a woman 80 years of age, called Nelly Nash. M. PAULIN, the son of a man who made a fortune by the Illustration (the French Illustrated News, of which he was the founder), committed suicide on Thursday, at his residence, No. 3, Rue Grange Bateliere. After starting in life with an income of upwards of £ 3,000 a year, he ruined himself by gambling at the Bourse and the German gaming-tables. At Homburg and Baden-Baden he frequently played the maximum and broke the bank. He was often heard to say that when he was thoroughly cleaned out" he would kill himself. He fulfilled the threat by enveloping his head in linen soaked in enormous quantities of chloroform. TWO DESTRUCTIVE FIRES occurred on Thurs- day, one at Skipton and the other at Brighouse. At the place first named the fire was discovered in the top room ef the corn mill belonging to Messrs. Wilkinson, and damage to the amount of j62,000 was done. The other fire was still more disastrous. It took place in a seven-story mill at Brighouse, in the occupation of Mr. Jonathan Stott, cotton spinner. The engines available were not of sufficient power effectually to check the progress of the flames, which rapidly consumed a great portion of the premises, and did damage roughly stated at 220,000. Between 500 and 600 persons will be thrown out of employment by the accident. PARISIAN MORALITY.—The following-conver- sation, which well illustrates Paris life, was overheard lately in the Cafe Anglais What a pretty woman Quelle belle femme Yes, she is charming." And that monsieur, is it her husband ? H Øh, no," replied the friend, sipping his absinthe, I should say certainly not; for I have seen them driving very often, and indeed they were at Baden together." Paris morality and Paris manners are odd, are they not ? Don't you go out so often with your wife, or you will get talked about," was the advice lately given to a friend of mine. AN IRISH WILL.—A will has been declared void in the Irish Court of Probate, which was rendered invalid not only by the framer, the Rev. James Ryan, P.P., having had it signed by the witnesses in the kitchen, and not within view of the deceased," but by the assets having been subsequently distributed without proving the will. The testator, a farmer named Gleeson, of Nenagh, left £ 1,200 in bank, besides two valuable freehold farms, and his nephew and heir-at-law disputed the will. As to the.1witnessing of the instrument, the Rev. Mr. Ryan thought the moral presence" of the parties was quite suffioient.. BRIBERY AT SHREWSBURY.—Considerable ex- citement prevails in Shrewsbury in consequence of statements by Mr. Robert Crawford, of the Reform Club, who is the second Liberal candidate for the repre- sentation of the borough. He says that he has had three interviews with a person who offered him Y,800 if he would consent to retire from the contest. The first offer was of £ 700, in addition to X100 being afterwards made. He parleyed with the agent who offered these terms, intending to take the money and divide it amongst the town charities. He has been advised by his solicitor to let the money alone. The Conservatives disavow the agent. ALARMING ACCIDENT.-On Monday evening Lord Mahon and Sir H. Watson Parker, the Conservative candidates for the borough of Greenwich, had just en- tered their private broughams, each of which was drawn by a pair of high-mettled horses, when unfortunately the animals, frightened by the noise of the rabble, took fright and bolted. The greatest alarm ensued, and every effort was made to arrest their headlong career, but without avail, and ultimately both carriages were smashed to pieces and the horses considerably injured. Fortunately, both gentlemen escaped without injury, but their escape from a violent death was most miraculous. Hackney cabs were immediately obtained, and both gen- tlemen departed for Woolwich. AN AFRICAN MISSION.—A mission from his Highness the Sultan of Zanzibar, accredited to her Majesty, has arrived in London, and is located at the Langham Hotel. It consists of his Excellency Sayyid Mahommed bin Salim, and Sayyid Ahmed bin Suleiman, two Arab chiefs of the highest rank at his Highness's Court, and Hajee Mahommed Bakushmir, the con- fidential secretary of the Sultan, accompanied by nive Arab attendants. The object of the mission is con- nected with the suppression of the slave trade on the East Coast of Africa and the revolution at Muscat, where Sayyid Thorwenee, the elder brother of his Highness, was sojqs ti^A ago cruelly murdered by his o wn son.
I HOW TO SERVE A FICKLE-MINDED LADY. A few days since a young gentleman and young lady appeared at the parsonage of an eminent clergyman of this city for the purpose of having their respective des. tinies united in the holy bonds of matrimony. Every- thing being ready, the clergyman aforesaid was about to proceed with the ceremony when the young lady dis- covered that she was minus the kid gloves so necessary on such occasions; whereupon she requested her affianced to hasten to a store and procure the indis- pensable kids, telling him to be in a hurry, or she might change her mind." The clergyman, witnesses, and intended bride waited some time for the return of the youth with the gloves; he didn't come. They waited longer, and still he failed to put in an appearance. The matter at last becoming really serious and alarming, the clergyman took his hat and proceeded, post haste, in search of the truant lover, whom he found, after a dili- gent search and many inquiries, quietly seated on the veranda of the Park-house, with his feet elevated on the back of a chair, and very deliberately puffing a cigar. On being asked to explain his singular conduct he care- lessly remarked that he was waiting to see if she was going to change her mind." They were married, how ever, at last, after two hours' delay.-Ottowa (Ill.) Re' publican.
LAUNCH OF THE ISPARTAIV. Her Majesty's steam screw ship Spartan was launched at Deptford Dockyard at a quarter past one on Saturday afternoon, in the presence of about 1,500 visitors, in- cluding Lord Mahon and Sir Henry W. Parker, the Con- servative candidates for the borough of Greenwich. Mr. E. J. Reed, C.B, Chief Constructor of the- Royal Navy, from whose design the Spartan was built, was also present. The vessel was christened by Mrs. A. P. Eardley-Wilmot, wife of the Captain Superintendent of the yard, and the launch was in every way successful. The Spartan will be taken to Woolwich Dockyard during the week to be fitted. She will receive an arma- ment of six guns, the vessel being built so as to fire in a line with her keel. The principal dimensions of the Spartan are as follows :—Length between perpendiculars, 212ft.; length of keel for tonnage, 185ft. 10kin.; extreme breadth, 36ft. breadth for tonnage, 35ft. lOin. moulded breadth, 35ft. 2in. depth in hold, 19ft. 4in.; tons burden, 1,268 66-94ths horse-power, 350. The vessel has been commenced and completed during the year in No. 1 slip. She went off just as the Prussian ironclad was coming out of the new docks on the oppo- site side of the river, and was immensely cheered as she glided into the water. After the launch a number of the visitors preceded to the residence of the Captain Su- perintendent, A. P. Eardley-Wilmot, C.B., A.D.C., where they partook of luncheon. There is only one vessel re- maining in the yard-viz., the Druid, which is being completed in No. 4 slip, and will be launched early in the new year, after which the Deptford Dockyard will be closed.
ACTIVITY OF THE PRESS. The announcements of new newspapers almost takes one's breath away. On Wednesday the Morning Summary appeared on toned paper. It is edited by Mr. Alpass, a writer who won his spurs on the Morning Chronicle. This is to be followed at the commencement of the Session, I believe, by a halfpenny evening, o be called the Echo. Messrs. Casse Petter, and Galpin are at the bottom of this, and the prospectus they have issued reads like a bit of the Liturgy. Honest and fearless in its comments upon politics, and statesmen, the Echo will endeavour to promote the national welfare rather than the success of a particular faction. Guided by an earnest belief in the progress of humanity, and seeking to advance the interests of the people, the Echo will strive to secure peace, to enforce economy, and to uphold a national policy enlightened by universal education." And all that for a halfpenny! But I hear that they are prepared to spend X40,000 upon their speculation; and if that is so they ought at least to win. It is said that the proprietor of the Pall-mall Gazette sunk £ 30,000 upon that paper before he saw a farthing in the form of returns; and the Telegraph swallowed up two or three fortune before it fell into the hands of the present proprietors. But they are splendid properties now. Mr. Arthur Arnold is, I believe, to be Editor of the Echo. He has had no experience in journalism; but, like all the Arnolds, he is an able man, has brains, and can use his pen. He was the superintendent of the Public Works in Lancashire during the famine, and wrote a history of the three years. He has also written two or three papers in the Fortnightly Review, and has now in the press, I believe, a volume of notes on the Levant. Mr. Arnold has the organising faculty, and that, combined with literary faculty, ought to make him a capital editor. But Echo is not to have the field all to itself. Charles Reade, the novelist, and some of his friends are, I hear, talking of bringing out a morning paper on the plan of the Pall Mall, but with a feidlleton. This is an experiment which has not yet been tried. But why it should not pay here as it does in Paris I cannot say. -Exeter Flying Post.
DEATH OF ROSSINI. A telegram from Paris, on Saturday night, announced the death of the great musical composer, Rossini. He had for some time been given over, and his death all through the past week was hourly expected. He was born at Pesaro, in 1792, where his parents happened then to be staying with a stroLmg operatic company, to which they belonged. Young Gioacchino, at the age of 17 or 18, began to write operas, some of which were produced at Bologna and Venice with .great success but the work which made his name all at once famous was Tancredi,' which was brought out at Venice in 1812 whenhewasonly20yearsofage. Thus encouraged, Rossini produced, in quick succession, 'L'Italiani in Algieri,' La Pietra il Paragone,' 9 Dimitrio e Polibio,' and 11 Turco in Italia but none of these equals his first,caef d'ouvre, though all of them contain beauties which will preserve them from oblivion. In 1815, Rossini, being appointed musical director of the theatre of San Carlo, at Naples, composed, forthat theatre, works which will ever be classed among his best productions, Otello,' I Mose in Egitto,' 'La Donna del Lago,' 'Maometto Secundo,'and I Zelmira.' The second of these has undergone two transformations to fit it for presentation to an English audience; the first being entitled Pietro l'Eremita,' and the second 'Zora.' The opera of 'Maometto Secundo' has undergone a like meta- morphosis to suit it to the French taste, its music having been adapted to a French drama, entitled 'La Siege de Corintbe. In 1816 his 'Barbiere di Seviglia'was produced at Rome, a subject which his brilliant treatment has made so universally popular that Paesiella's prior composition of the same name is scarcely remembered. Of Rossini's other works, it may be noted that La Cenerentola' and 'La Gazza Ladra' were produced in 1817 at Milan; about this time also appeared Elizabeth,' Matilda and Conradino,' whilst the opera of Semiramide,' one of his grandest works, which he produced at Venice in 1823, was the last of the series he wrote for the theatres in Italy. Before this he had produced 'Ricciardo and Zorayde,' 'Cenerentola,' 'Armida,' I Eurardo and 'Chris- tine,' and 'Aureliano and Palmyra.' Quitting that country immediately afterwards, he, in company with his wife, Madame Colbrand Rossini, accepted an engage- ment with the manager of His Majesty's Theatre in London, and stayed one season in the metropolis, where he was feted and welcomed in the highest circles. Proceeding to Paris at the expiration of the tena, he became director of the Italian Opera of that city, a position which he retained until the year 1830, composing during the period, on the occasion of the coronation of Charles X., II Viazzlo di Rheims,' the music of which he afterwards made use of in a French opera, entitled Le Comte Ory,' and I Gaillaume Tell,' one of his greatest works. On retiring from the direction of the Italian Opera at Paris Rossini retired to Passy, and withdrew from all professional exertion the only com- position which has since issued from his pen being his well-known Stabat Mater.' To the last he took deep interest in his art, and many instances are recorded of his having extended assistance to young artists of merit."
FATAL POACHING AFFRAY. The Court of Assizes of Hainault, Belgium, tried, a few days back, a man named Quievreux, a wheelwright, of Mentrseul-au-Bois, on a charge of poaching and an attempt to murder. On the night of the 3rd of Sep- tember last, three gamekeepers of Baron Dussart were on the watch, when they heard some shots fired, and a man with a gun approached them. They barred the passage, on which he called out to give way but they held firm, and the man fired and killed one of them, named Fourez. After a desperate struggle the stranger was overpowered and taken to prison, where he attempted to commit suicide. On his trial he denied that he fired voluntarily, and the local authorities of his commune gave him an excellent character. The jury acquitted the prisoner of murder, but found him guilty of accidental homicide. In conse- quence he was fined 50f. for the offence of poaching, sen- tenced to six months' imprisonment with a fine of 100f. for the homicide, and, on the claim of Fourez's father, condemned to pay 5,000f. damages.

PRUSSIAN GUNNERY EXPERIMENTS I A Berlin letter says at the latest artillery experiments a gun of 24 pierced iron plates of from five to six inches in thickness, and this is considered a prodigious result. The idea of fortifying the railways seems about to be realised in all the new constructions. The bridges of the Oder, near Frankfort, on that river, and of Pommersig, are to be famished with permanent works. The same is to be said of the bridge over the Rhine, near Reuss. Probably also the new communication across the Elbe will be fortified. The experiments lately made here in the employment again of bronze for guns have yielded very good results as respects field pieces. Artillery of the same kind has also been tried in Bavaria. Experiments have been made with prismatic powder, an American invention. It is dearer than the ordinary kind, but more powerful, and it neither fouls nor corrodes the gun.
TRANSFUSION OF THE BLOOD. We find it stated in the Amico del Popolo of Palermo, that Dr. Enrico Albanese a few days ago performed the operation of transfusion of the blood with success at the Hospital della Concezione of that city. A youth aged 17, named Giuseppe Ginazzo, of Cinisi, was received at that establishment on the 29th of September last with a bad humour on his leg, which in the end rendered am- putation necessary, the patient being very much emaciated, and labouring under fever. The operation reduced him to a worse state than ever, and it became apparent that he was fast sinking, the pulse being imperceptible, the eyes dull, and the body cold. In this emergeney Dr. Albanese had recourse to the transfusion ef blood as the only remedy that had not yet been tried. Two assistants of the hospital offered to have their veins opened for the purpose, and thus, at two different intervals, 220 gms. of blood were introduced into the patient's system. After the first time he recovered the faculty of speech, and stated that, before he could neither see nor hear, but felt as if he were flying in the air. He is now in a fair state of recovery.
SINGULAR ACTION P-ESPE, CTING A SALE OF COTTON. In April last a Havre house sold to another 100 bales of cotton, to be delivered on the arrival of the ship Her Majesty," expected from Bombay at Havre and the latter house subsequently sold 50 of the bales to a third party, with the condition that "they were announced by despatch as destined to be loaded in the ship Her Majesty." But subsequently the intelligence arrived that the cotton bales could not be dis- patched by that vessel, there being no room, but would be forwarded by the Tweed. The second seller immediately informed the third party of this but when the cotton arrived the latter refused to receive it, on the ground that it was not that which had been sold to him, sinee it had not come in Her Majesty. The second seller submitted the case to the Tribunal of Commerce, which decided that in this case the transfer of the cotton from one ship to another was one of those eventualities which must be accepted in such distant navigation I as that frem Bombay, and ordered the cotton be taken by the third party, under a penalty of 300f. for each day's delay.
ACTION AGAINST LORD FITZ- HARDINGE. At the Court of Common Fleas, on Saturday, the case of "Hall v. Earl Fitzhardinge" came up. Mr. J. Brown, Q.C., said that this was an action upon three bills of exchange drawn by Colonel Hugh Baillie upon Earl Fitzhardinge, and his lordship, in answer, pleaded a deed of composition by which he had agreed to pay to his creditors 7s. 6d. in the pound. The unsecured dabts exceed £ 350,000. The question to be raised at the trial was the validity of this deed, and this would depend principally upon whether it had been signed by a certain proportion in number .and value of the auditors. Another question would be whether certain persons were holders for value of bills. Most of the debts arose out of bill transactions, many of them having been accepted for Colonel Baillie and been negotiated by him. Under these circumstances, Colonel Baillie would be a most material witness for the defendants, and the present application was that a writ of svhpcena duces tecum should issue into Scotland, where the colonel was, com- manding him to attend on the trial of the cause. The court ordered the writ.
A MANS HEAD CUT OFF. A man named George Kennedy, 30 years of age, was employed on the Caledonian Railway at Carlisle as a labourer. On Friday he, with another man, had gone down the line towards the railway bridge with a wheel- barrow, for the purpose of getting some buffer wads t On their return Kennedy, who was very deaf was left alone with the barrow while the other man returned for something they had left behind. The half-past ten North British train came up in the mean time Ken- nedy spoke to a slater working near and returned to his* barrow, but the next thing the slater saw was something like a coal whirling among the wheels of the North British train. This turned out to be the unfortunate man Kennedy. His head was severed from his body, and he was otherwise fearfully mutilated.
AN IDAHO DIVORCE COURT. There is in Idaho territory a judge who is well known as Alec Smith." A woman brought a suit in his court for divorce, and had the discernment to select a particular friend of her own, who stood well with the judge, as her attorney. One morning the judge called up the case, and addressing himself tc the attorney for the complainant said Mr. R., I don't think people ought to be compelled to live together where they don't want to, and I will decree a divorce in this case." Mr. H.^bowed blandly. Thereupon the judge, turning to another attorney, whom he took to be the eounsel for the defendant, said "Mr. M., I suppose you have no objection to the decree ?" Mr. M. nodded assent. But the attorney for the defendant was another Mr. M. not then in court. Presently he came in, and finding that his client had been divorced without a hearing, began to remonstrate. Alec listened a moment, then interrupted saying, "Mr. M., it is too late. The court has pro- nounced the decree of divorce, and the parties are no longer man and wife. But if you want to argue the case, right bad, the court can marry them over again and give 10U a crack at it." [

A OLERGYJJfAN P ATNTING HIS OHURCn SPIRE. The Rev. Mi. Taylor, attached to the Chicago Theo- logical Seminary, has been engaged to fill the rmln-t n* the Baptist Church in Kenosha, Wisconsin. ThtuA- lowing anecdote of his perseverance is related by the Kenosha Telegraph« The Rev. Mr. Tavlor, the young pastor of the Baptist church in this city, is justly entitled to the appellation of a working minister. The taU spire of the Baptist church was greatly in need of a coat of paint; a painter by trade could not readily be found to undertake the difficult job, therefore Mr. Taylor proceeded to do the work himself. The church spire is tall and slender, the ball on the top of the rod being 100ft. from the surface of the ground. He suc- ceeded, by contrivance, with a little help, in, rallnng a slender ladder from the bell deck, reaching nearly to the brackets belew the top ball of the spire. On this he ascended with paint pot and brush, and standing cn the small iron brackets, gave the ball two coats of paint. The most difficult part of the work, however was tc paint the long space of spire below bim. By the help of a line, he drew up a rope, fastened it around the rod! and then around his body, and swung off fearlessly his standing place. By re-adjusting and lowering himself in the ropes as occasion required, he was enabled to swing himself round on all sides of the spire, giving a good coat of paint all the way down to thQ deck."
MR. ROEBUCK:.—An application was made in the Rolls Court on behalf of Mr. Roebuck, to commit the printer and publisher of one of the Sheffield-papers, for having published extracts from a bill in a pending suit, in which Mr. Roebuck's name was freely used. His lordship characterised the proceeding as a gross contempt Of court, and ordered three apologies to be inserted in the offending journal, the proprietors to pay the costs of the motion. THE GERMAN FoRGERs.-Ile three Germans, Streimer, Stovin, and Kunaker, have been again re- manded on the charge of having conspired to defraud various London bankers by means of forged foreign bills of exchange. It was elicited that the prisoners had made arrangements for circulating fraudulent bills bearing the forged acceptances of firms in the principal cities ef Europe, Australia, and Canada. One engraver proved that he had lithographed 300 forms of foreigO bills of exchange for the prisoner Streimer.
DEATH IN GAOL OF "DUGDALE." An inquest has been held in the Clerkenwell House of Correction, Coldbath-fields, to inquire into the cir- cumstances attending the death of William Dugdale, aged 69, who died while a prisoner in the above gaol The deceased was the notorious Dugdale, who for many years past carried on a nefarious system of dealing in and circulating obscene prints. He was first received as a pri- soner in the above gaol 46 years ago, and after Lord Campbell's Act he was frequently sentenced to prison. He was lastly found guilty of misdemeanour at the Mid- dlesex Sessions, when Sir W. Bodkin sentenced him to 18 calendar months with hard labour. The prints and lithographic stones seized at the time of Dugdale's last apprehension were worth several thousands of pounds, and if of a moral character would have been of con- siderably greater value. Frem their obscenity they were destroyed. The deceased, on receiving his sentence on the 22nd of June last, said, "I am an old man, and shall never again come out of prison alive." This, it is said, was his usual reply. A daughter of the deceased stated in evidence that her father did not complain of the prison diet, and added, I believe that if he had had books on history and geo- graphy his life would have been saved. He had only a Bible, prayer-book, and tracts to read, which he knew all by heart." Dugdale died from paralysis, and the jury, after hearing the evidence, found that death resulted from natural causes.
FBENOH POLISH. Anrelien Schall, the well-known contributor to the Figaro and several other papers, and M. de Heckerent came toblows at the Cafe Bignon, at the comer of the Boulevard des Italiens and of the Chausee d'Antin. M. de Heckeren imagined that M. Schall had inten- tionally insulted him. When he entered the cafe, M. de Heckeren rose and pushed against him purposely. M. Schall, who did not know him, said, Sir, you make a mistake." I never make a mistake give me j*>ur card." "Here it is and yours ?" Where- upon a regular encounter took place with fists and sticks. At last the waiters managed to separate the combatants. M. de Heckeren left the cafe after giving his card to the dame du comptoir, and then went out to seek for seconds, and await his adversary. M. d'Ezpeletta and Colonel Count d'Audlou immediately offered their ser- vices M. Schall selecting M. Laurier and the Count du Bisson. Acting on the advice of his seconds, M. Schall has summoned M. de Heckeren to appear before the police-court, after which they are to fight. The cause of this affray has not yet transpired.
