I THE HEALTH OF MR. GLAD. I STONE. We are enabled to state that Mr Gladstone has been somewhat indisposed for the last few days. The Premier took part in the Cabinet Council, which broke up at a quarter to seven, and an hour later he was visited again by Sir Andrew Clark, who came from attending a patient in the country expressly to see Mr Gladstone. The r feSS ASsocIatlOn representative had an interview with Sir Andrew Clark in Downing-street, after the doctor had seen Mr Gladstone. Sir Andrew stated that the Prime Minister was suffering from the same complaint as he was attacked by two years ago, and it had led to a recurrence of those sleepless nights from which he then suffered. It was necessary, therefore, that he should have partial, if not complete, rest for a time in the country. With this object, Sir Andrew Clark has advised his patient to retu-. -w soon as pos- sible to Hawarden, and rest from the worry of public affairs. In accordance with this advice, Mr Gladstone will leave for Hawarden to-day. It is probable that another contin ental trip may be advisable this spring, but upon this point Sir Andrew Clark has not at present come to a decision^ The Prime Minister on Friday evening drove with Sjr Andrew Clark to Lord Keay's residence at Stan- hope-street, where he dined quite privately with the noble lord. Mr Gladstone walked with firm- ness to the carriage in Downing-street, but it waa readily noticeable that he was exceedingly paje and apparently careworn. :By the doctor's orders' he returned early to Downing-street,where he will be again visited by the medical attendant this morning. On Monday lastt the Premier's ibirthday, it was observable that the right hon. gentleman was not enjoying his usual good health, and he took no exercise on that day beyond attending the parish church at morning service. On New Year's Day he did not attend early morning service, contrary to his practice for many years, and it Was remarked that he looked very pale. Notwithstand- ing the .bitterly cold weather, the Premier took the train from Chester at 2 o'clock lor London, as a Cabinet Council was summoned for Fri- day. On arrival at Euston tatIon, after over four hours' journey, Mr Gladstone looked far from well, and quickly entering a private carriage in waiting for him drove direct to Downing-street, where his Private Secretary was awaiting his arrival. Sir Andrew Clark, his medical attendant, called upon him shortly afterwards, ana remained with him some time. On Friday morning Sir Andrew again visited the Premier before he was up, and remained over half an hour. Sir Andrew reported that Mr Gladstone had made some improvement, but had passed a rather restless night. The Premier rose somewhat later than usual, and commenced work almost immediately- Lord Granville visited him at noon and remained for more than an hour. It Was known at two o'clock that Mr Gladstone was sufficiently well to attend the Cabinet Council which wet as arr-nged at four o'clock. During the day the Prime Minister kept within doors and was able to attend to all matters of business which came before him.
