I THE POLITICAL SITUATION. I Another Cabinet Council. t Ministers Remain in Town. I Acciasnt 1-. Lord Hartington. A Cabinet Council was hld on Wednesday in Downing-street, at one o'clock, the proceedings lasting for three hours. Neither Mr Gladstone nor Earl Spencer was present. The first minister to arrive was Sir William Harcourt, who drove from his residence attended, as usnfii, by a detec- tive. He was almost immediately followed by Sir Charles Dilke, who walked over from the offices of tha Local Government Board, and by Lord Carlingtord, wiio likewise came on foot,. Earl Granville, who walked across St. James's Park from Carlton House-terrace, entered by the garden-gate at Horse Guards Parade. Amongst later arrivals were the Lord Chancellor, Earl Kimberley, Lord Northbrook, Mr Chamberlain, and the Marquis of Hartington. Shortly before the deliberations of the Cabinet commen- ced, ^Lord Edmond Fitzmaurice, Under-Secretary of Foreign Affairs, called at Downing-street, and had a brief interview with Lord Granville. At five minutes to four, Sir Charles Dilke, Mr Chamberlain, the Lord Chancellor, Sir William Harcourt, and Lord Kimberlcy, in the order named, left the council, and walked immediately to their respective offices. Lord Hartington left ten minutes later by the garden entrance, and walked to the War Office. Earl Granville and Lord Derby remained together for another ten minutes, when they likewise left and entered the Foreign and Colonial Offices respectively, where they spent a considerable time in transacting business, Earl Granville was invited to dine with her Majesty on Wednesday evening at Osborne, and had arranged to leave, by the 3.40 train from Waterloo for the Isle of Wight; but owing to the protracted sitting of the Cabinet, his lordship was prevented from carrying out his intention. Lord Deroy has made arrangements to remain in town. Lord Northbrook also remains the night at the Admiralty, and will not return to the country until Friday. Several other ministers remam in town until to-day (Thursday). The Central News says An unconfirmed rumour was cunent on Wednesday evening that circumstances arose at the council which will necessitate consultation with the Premier, and that Lord Granville will therefore proceed to Ha warden to-day (Thursday). Early on Wednesday morning, as Lord Hartington was beinsr driven in a. private hansom from Hard wick Hall to Chesterfield Railway btation, the horse fell heavily in Corporation- street, Chesterfield, owing to the slippery state of the road, caused by the heavy frost. His lord- suip was somewhat shaken, but was able to walk forward to the station, a few hundred yards distant, and proceeded by the 7.48 train to Lon- don for the purpose of attending the Cabinet Council.
