ENGLAND'S EXTERNAL 4 t RELATIONS. J To-day sTimes says:—"The crisis is becominr" serious and the complications with which this country is beset in different parts of the world are so menacing, that the ineapa-city displayed by the Cabinet in its external relations is becoming national danger. Much is forgiven to men who have a reputation, but in the face of continual and glaring proofs of failure to conduct the most ordinary affairs, the country may speedily be driven to the conclusion that there would at least be no harm in trying what can be done by persons with less high sounding names. Once before there was a ministry of all the talents which conspicuously failed to carry on tha national business, and whatever the powers of the men who now compose the Government, they are collectively cursed with an infirmity ot will and a blindness to facts which are rapidly involving the country in difficulties and dangers such as the most powerful state may shrink from encounter- ing. Every one will regret to learn that Mr Glad stone's health is suffering from the strain imposed upon him, and none can deny his right to the repose enjoined by his physician. At tha present time the affairs of the country requires more than usual physical and mental vigour for their direction, and, as Mr Gladstone has been accustomed to find these qualities for the whole Cabinet, it is not wonderful that his diminished capacity for work is disastrously felt in every department. [" TIMES TELEGRAM, t BERLIN, Friday.—An evening journal pretends to have heard from a well-informed .quarter that the Imperial Government has already given orders for hoisting the German flag in the Bay of St Lucia; that a lively communication is at present taking place on the subject between the Cabinets of London and Berlin; and that Ger- many is determined to assert the priority of her claims to the territory in question. The second item in the above statement may, I think, be accepted as true. 1.
