MISCELLANEOUS. -—-— ———————————————— The Rev Hugh Price Hughes thinks if the objectionable features of the stage were abolished, the humanitarian classes might frequent it more 4 generally. An American minister, the Rev. Lloyd George, is building a church eight storeys high, containing baths, gymnasiums, libraries, everything to raise P and benefit man, and to make him happier, higher, better, stronger. The name of the Royal babe has not yet been announced. A girl would naturally have been called Victoria but for a boy there is a larger |HB choice. He may be called George after his father, or Albert after his grandfather, or Victor after his great-grandmother. Perhaps all three. The infant Prince inherits no title, her Majesty having some years ago decreed that the style of Royal Highness should belong only to her own children and the children of her sons. No English sovereign before Queen Victoria ever lived to see a great grandchild. Indeed, none between Edward » III. and George I. even saw a grandchild, with the exception of James II., who survived the infants of his daughter Annie.g It is a remarkable coincidence that the news of the three most notable assassinations which have 'jj taken place during the last thirteen years has dis- i turbed the quiet of Sunday. It was on Sunday, the 14th March, 1881, that news was flashed to the capitals of Europe of the assassination of the Czar. On Sunday morning, the 7th of May, 1882, England awoke to hear of the murder of Lord Frederick Cavendish in Phoenix Park. The assassination of M. Camot was known on Sunday over a wide area of club-land. 'H The Queen will shortly be the possessor of one of "1 the most remarkable articles ever made in a prison. The superintendent of Agra Gaol a few months ago received an order to weave a carpet of special design for her Majesty. This, says a London correspon- dent, is now complete. On it 28 of the deftest oon- victs of the establishment have been engaged, and the texture measures 77ft. by 40ft., aad is estimated to contain no fewer than 59,000,000 stitches. The pattern, known as the Poona, is rarely met with. It has a dark ground upon which the device and border are executed in delicate shades of vegetable- dyed blues, yellows, brown, and greens. The carpet, which is of immense value, will be used in Her Majesty's Indian room at Osborne. The Agra --3 Gaol convicts are also making a carpet for the German Emperor. "1
