Monday evening —Mr Gladstone,since his return home, seems to -have improved in health cor- siderably, a circumstance which is probably dua chiefly to the fact that he has been able, to sleep more comfortably at nig"t. The slight attack of lumb'igo causes him lit:: inconvenience, and has certainly not impaired .v:, general health and spirits. This morning ?»■ r Gladstone breakfasted in bed, and remained m his bedroom until somewhat late, a drizzling ru" offering no inducement to out-dour exerc In the afternoon, however, however, the we cleared up, and the right hon. gentlemen in company with Mrs Gladstone, took an enj able drive. On their return to Hawarden vill;rf.- Mr Gladstone dismissed the carriage and -al-I through the park to the castle, a distance abcut half a mile. Owing to the lumbago, -C Gladstone was obliged to lean upon a stick and incline bis body slightly to the right, and this gave an appearance of feebleness altogether -i :> ceptivc. The Fress Association special representative at Hawarden says :—It is expected that Sir Andrew Clark will visit the towards the end of the present week. Sir A-adrew is in a. positior t. leave London at any moment should his ik- vices be required, but the improvement noticeable in Mr Gladstone's condi!. on Monday morning continued throughout tha day, and in the afternoon it was evident that had considerably gained ground.
