SINGULAR ADVENTURE OF A If "SOLDIER. The Indian troopship Serapis arrived at Ports- mouth yesterday with 931 time expired men, 40 for depots and 12 invalids. When the ship was in the Straits of Babelmandeb, a private of the Leicester Regiment, named Rose, jumped over- board. It was a fine moonlight night, and at nine o'clock the Island of Perim, a British mili- tary station, could be easily seen from the deck, where most of the passongers were crowded. Many of them were admiring the moonlight view, when suddenly the cry, Man overboard was raised. The ship, which was going at her ordinary speed of thirteen knots, was stop- ped as quickly as possible, and boats were lowered. The men in the boats could distinctly see the sharks that thickly infested the water, and, though they con- tinued their search for an hour, they were not long in concluding that Rose had attempted suicide, and that he had been devoured by the sharks. It was also concluded that even if be had not been eaten, he must have been carried away, as a tide of four knots an hour was running down the Straits. Much, however, to the astonishment of all on board, when the ship reached Suez, a telegraph was received on board intimating that Rose had gone through the shark bed, and, though the tide was strong on his side, be had landed on the Island of Perim, which, as the crow flies, is a mile and a quarter from the spot where he jumped overboard. A telegram was at once sent to the commandant at Perim, requesting him to forward Rose, under escort as a prisoner to Suez or Aden, where his offence will be dealt with.
CAPTURE OF A GANG OF BURGLARS. Charles Hescott, of 3, Hayfield-passage, Mile- end, was charged un remand at the Thames Court yesterday with being concerned with another man named Nash in committing a number of burgla- ries in the East-end of London and Louisa Marie Caldwell and Emma Burns were charged with receiving a quantity of the property, well knowing it to have been stolen. It appears that on the night of Sunday week Nash and Hescott broke into the d wellinlr-house of Mr Andrew Wade, a greengrocer, of 31, Harford-street, Mile-end, and, having ransacked the lower rooms, packed the things up, placed them in a back yard ready for removal. They then proceeded to the bedroom in which Mr Wade was sleeping, and while overhauling the room awoke that gentleman, who at once sprang out of bed. The men rushed down the stairs, and out of the back door. A constable, who happened to be near the spot, saw the men running, and followed them, and afterwards one. ceeded in capturing Nash, on whom some of Mr Wade's property was found. He was also carry- ing three boots, two of which had since then been identified as belonging to the prisoner Hescott. From information afterwards received, that officer proceeded to Ernest-street, and there saw the two female prisoners. In the room long occupied was found a large quantity o ) clothing, forks, spoons, knives, and other arti- cles, as well as some acid for testing the silver on plated articles. A number of the things found there were afterwards identified by Mrs Hannah Crabbe, of 46, Beaumont-square, Mile-end, whose house was broken into the same night as Mr Wade's. A few nights previous the house and shop of Mr Granger, of the Mile-end-road, was entered, and goods to the value of £10 stolen. Some of the plated forks stolen from there were found in the female prisoner's house- a shop belonging to a Mr Tuckwell, of the Mile- end-road-and a quantity of property stolen belonging to him and his assistant. Some of these were also found in the possession of the prisoners. Hescott pleaded guilty, and Mr Lushington committed both prisoners tof trial at the Central Criminal Court,
THE COWBRIDGE MURDER. Confession of David Roberts. „ At the Cowbridge police court this morning it transpired that David Roberts, the younger, had confessed to Sergt. Martin at the Cow- bridge police-station that he murdered David Thomas that his father was drunk in bed. He murdered him with a bill hook. He states that John Thomas is innocent.

The Netherby Hall Burglary. The prisoners Rudge, Martin, and Baker, were again brought before the magistrates at Carlisle to-day. The evidence relating to the murder of Police Constable Byrnes, at Plumbton, was re- sumed. The medical evidence indicated that the constable before receiving the fatal shot from a revolver had had a struggle with one or more persons, and that he had been held while the revolver was fired. Doctor Lediard, who attended the wounded constable Johnstone, said the bullet found in his body fitted the revolver found upon Rudge when apprehended, and the bullet in Sergeant Roche's arm fitted the revolver found upon Martin. He also stated that the overcoats of the three pri- soners were stained more or less with blood one of them was almost steeped in blood.
Robbery at Cardiff. Michael Donovan and Andrew Donovan were charged before the magistrates to-day with stealing quantity of clothing and other articles value J320 from a railway truch at the Newtown siding of the Great Wes- tern, between October 31st and November 2nd. Mr Henry Perkins (from the office of Mr Bel- cher) watched the case on behalf of the Cardiff Pawnbrokers' Protection Association. Evidence was given to show that Andrew Donovan had pawned the clothes at Mr Jacobs' shop in Herbert-street. When ap- prehended, the prisoner pleaded that he had been sent by his brother, and did not know they were stolen. Michael Dono- van said that he had missed a fowl from his yard, and had gone over the wall to look for it, and had there found the clothes in a parcel, whereupon he had sent his brother to pawn them. The case was adjourned for a week for further evidence.
DEATH OF THE HON. P. J, LOCKE-KING. The Hon. Peter John Loc!«;-King, younger brother of the Earl of Lovelace, died at his seat, Brooklands, near Weybridge, early this morning.

He had been in the ernploy of iNIr Leving- ton, carrier, of Old Bailey, and during October a number of valuable pictures were missed from the premises, and it was stated that the prisoner attempted to negotiate the sale of one to a picture dealer. The prisoner was discharged, and a fire was afterwards discovered which was attributed to an attempt to hide the theft. The prisqper was remanded pending inquiries.
MELANCHOLY REVOLVER N FATALITY. Owen Evans, farmer, of Poutrug, North Wales, has shot his brother, John Evans, 18, a pupil teacher, dead with a revolver. The affair was accidental. Deceased bought a revolver, and Mr Owen Evans was examining it, not knowing it was loaded. The deceased said, Pull the trigger and see it revolve." Mr Evans did so. The charge exploded, and, the bullet entering the region of the heart, young Evans died almost im- mediately.
SHOCKING INHUMANITY TO CHILDREN. A revolting case of starving and ill-treating a little boy and girl, aged eight and ten years re- spectively, was heard at the Police court, Wey- mouth, yesterday. The father is a foreman porter named Joseph Corbin, engaged on the Great Western Railway, and the wife is the children's stepmother. For months past these children had been seen picking up street refuse and eating it, and the neighbours had given them food, as they appeared to be almost starving. At last things reached a climax, and the matter was brought under the notice of the police, when the little ones were taken before a medical man and examined. It was then found that, in addi- tion to being in a most emaciated condition, they were black and blue from ill-treatment, in a most filthy state, and without a vestige of undercloth- ing. The defendants were committed for two months' hard labour. It was intended to have sent them to prison in the afternoon, but owing to the excited state of feeling shown by hundreds of persons who congregated about the police sta- tion, itjwas not deemed prudent to do so.
A SHOEMAKER'S DIVORCE SUIT. In the Divorce Division, yesterday, Justice Butt had before him the case of Knight v. Knight and Rampling.—The petitioner was that of Frank Knight, a shoemaker, of 23, Eldon-street, South- sea, for a divorce by reason of his wife's adultery with the co-respondent.—The respondent entered an appearance, and filed an answer denying the charge, but the co-respondent did not appear. She, however, was undefended.—Mr Leonard, who appeared for the petitioner, said that the marriage took place on the 27th June, 1879, and Mr and Mrs Knight afterwards lived together in various places. There was no issue of the marriage. In August, 1880, petitioner found that his wife had been unfaithful, and he accordingly sent her back to her mother. From there she went to the union, and the petitioner contributed towards her support. She was afterwards found to be living with the co-respondent, and these proceedings were instituted. -His lordship granted a decree nisi, but made no order as to costs, no evidence being forthcoming that the co-respon- dent knew the respondent to be a married woman. t"

THE DEATH OF DR. W. B. "i CARPENTER. An inquest was held to-day, at the residence of the late Dr William Benjamin Carpenter, Regent's Park, London, as to the cause of his death. Evidence was given to the etfect that deceased bad suffered from rheumatic pains and arranged on Monday to take a hot air bath. This was accomplished by means of a gallipot, filled with spirits of wine, which were ignited that the heat might pass beneath the blankets in which the deceased was swathed. Deceased, however, in rising, upset the gallipot, and the blanket taking fire, he was severely burned about the legs and body. Dr. W. Adams, of Regents Park, said he had never seen anyone so extensively and severely injured. He expired shortly before three on Tuesday morn- ing. Witness thought the mode adopted by the doctor of taking the hot air bath was a most dangerous proceeding. Death resulted from col- lapse following the burns.—The jury found a ver- dict in accordance with the medical evidence that death resulted by misadventure.
A STRANGE CHARGE OF ASSAULT. A clerical scandal came before the Birkenhead county magistrates yesterday. Mrs Hardman, the prosecutrix, was the widow of a clergyman who died two years ago, and the defendant, a curate named Elwell Smith. During the lifetime of Mr Hardman the defendant officiated for him, and after his death sympathisingly visited his widow. An intimacy sprang up, which, instead of resulting in marriage, ended in the birth of a child, which Mr Smith's mother, by legal arrange- ment, adopted. Since that time Smith had in various ways annoyed Mrs Hardman, and last Saturday week, meeting her at New Ferry, he applied insulting expressions to her. which led to them being resented by a young gentleman named Todhunter, who accompanied her. In the end the curate struck Todhunter and also Mrs Hard- man. The magistrates found defendant guilty of both assaults, and gave him the option of going to prison for two months, or paying fines and costs, making up a total of L7 12s 6d, giving the rev defendant twenty-four hours to raise the money, the bench characterising the case as a most painfal one.

Barrett with the view of contesting the Bickerstaffe Stakes against Kinmont Willie, but being fonnd to be lame on the way to the post, he did not start. Kinmont Willie then walked over for 25 sovs. St. George was lucky to win the Grand Sefton Steeplechase, for had Red Hussar been as well ridden as was the winner he would have won easily enough. It will be remembered that we gave Red Hussar for a place for the Grand National, and he is very likely to win next year. It is said that most of the yearlings in Gurry's stable have already been tried, and St. Mary, by Hermit out of Adelaide, who cost 3,900 guinea-s at the Blankney sale, came out of the ordeal so satisfactorily that Mr Abington was offered and refused the enormous sum of £5,000 for her. The rumours with regard to Mr Manton's high-priced yearling that realised 3,600 guineas at Sir Tatton Sykes's sale at Doncaster, are not so promising.

Political Meetings. MR. T. BURT, M.P., IN SOUTH WALES. Meetings at Penarth and Cymmer On Thursday Mr T. Burt, M.P., attended a meeting at Penarth on behalf of the candida- ture of Mr Arthur Williams, for the southern division, and addressed a large meeting of work. ing men in a shed in the yard of the Penarth Siipway Company. Mr Edward Phillips, a working man, having been voted to the chair, called upon Mr PAVEY, another working man, who moved the following resolution This meeting of working men is of opinion that the Liberal Government is the best Government for the country—(applause)—and expresses its earnest h >pe that a large Liberal majority will be returned at the for,b. coniing election under the leadership of the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone. Mr A. J. WILLIAMS, who seconded the resolu- tion, remarked that time, always valuable to working men, was additionally valuable to them when they took their mid-day meal, and therefore he regarded their presence there at that time as a great compliment. There were a good many lords about in this division of Glamorganshire just now. Some had been to Bridgend—(laugh- ter, and a Voice, Let 'em stop there ")—and hs believed that one was coming to Penarth to follow up the arguments of another lord—Dunraven. (Hisses.) He would only say of these noble lords, that A king may make a belted knight," a king might make a peer, a king might add to the House of Lords, but a king could not make a Thomas Burt. (Cheers.) Lord Randolph Churchill—(groans)—was right once out of twice in his public utterances; because one day he said one thing and then made a clean slate and said another. (Laugiiter.) One day he said London may go wrong, the clubs may go wrong, but the people never go wrong." (Ap- plause.) That was why he (Mr Williams) was a Radical; that was why he was not only a Radical to-day, but had been one since he had been able to form a conscientious judgment. Time, and prosperity, and the temptation of social con- siderations had not affected his con- scientious judgment. He was as Radical now as when he had to bear a good deal in consequence of his Radical opinions. (Cheers.) It was because Mr Burt represented this judgment and conscience of the people fih;U 'ie that in the new House of Commons as ,Tau>' men l;is ^amp as possible would be found. "Rsib.T1"^ Llewelyn, the speaker said that that gentlcn./111 w^. \}. re', turned, follow his brother-in-law', >- r ^cnaei Hicks-Beach, and the present Prime Mm~Tler' who for 40 years of public life had never failed, either in the House or out of it, to resist every change of a beneficial character. Mr BCRT, M.P., who was received with the greatest enthusiasm, said he had promised some time ago to come into this district and take part with Mr Williams--(" He is worthy of it ")-on behalf of his candidature, and it was because he was worthy of it-(iiear, hear)—that he was there to fulfil that promise. He felt that in speaking of Mr Williams he was speaking after some intimate knowledge of him because he happened to be on the Royal Commission to inquire into accidents io mines, of which Mr Williams had been secretary. They had during five years been brought very closely together, and he knew that upon all questions affecting the working classes that might come before the new Parliament they could not have had a better man even if he were a labour representative. There was no one who would be able to bring to bear a better ability, a better intelligence, and a more sincere desire to do what was just to the working classes than Mr Williams. (Loud cheers.) There was one question about which he wished to speak. They knew he was a miner; and, of course, his sympathies were, as they should be, very largely with the class with which he was connected. They would have special questions affecting miners brought before the new House of Com- mons. They would have direct representatives of the miners in considerable numbers there. (Hear, hear.) Mr Williams' intimate knowledge of mining questions would make him a valuable supporter of any amendments that they might require in the Mines' Regulation Act. (Cheers.) Then there were broader questions in which they were all interested. There was the bill of which he himself, at the request of the Trades' Union Parliamentary Committee, had charge-a bill to make more effective, to make compulsory the Act of Parlia- ment passed by the Liberal Government in 1880, and which had been of considerable service, the Employers' Liability Bill. (Loud cheers.) They had in the north of England and in Lancashire from =0,000 to 30,000 miners who had been com- pelled by their employers to contract themselves out of any claim that they might have under the Act. Of course there had been compensation. Several thousands of pounds had been obtained by orphans and windows on account of injury or loss of husbands and relatives. But while they believed it was good and proper to support the widow and orphans, they wanted, if possible, to prevent the making of widows and orphans—(applause)—and the act had been a measure of safety in inducing careless and negligent employers to fence their machinery, and to ensure safe working in mines. He aske1 those, present to suppoit him by sending Mr Williams to raise his voice in the House of Commons on behalf of this act of justice. (Ap- plause.) Those present were not mere wealth- creating tools, to be used and then cast aside. They were citizens, and as such they were deeply interested in the great, and wide, and deep questions which affected them in common with the rest of the communities. Mr Williams had already pointed to the reforms which have a direct effect upon the working population. Take the reform of the land laws as a typical instance. They were all interested in this question, because it affected the material things of every day life, such as the price of food, the rate of wages, and house accommodation. It touched a working man at every point. (Hear, hear.) There was not time to discuss the ques- tion of the nationalisation of the land, but what the landless milll onF, who had been deprived of their patrimony, had a right to insist on was that all the land of which they had been unjustly deprived no matter by what tenure it be held—should be given up for purposes of the well-being and recreation of the community. (Ap- plause.) The present was one of the most mo- mentous crises in the history of the country, but the Liberal party possessed two great advantages —they had a just cause and a splendid leader. (Applause.) Mr Gladstone—(three cheers were given for Mr Gladstone)-wa-, once more in Mid- lothian. It was always hazardous to prophesy, but the speaker predicted that Mr Gladstone would be returned Prime Minister of England with a sufficient majority behind him to make it impossible that any mere faction or section should be able to defeat the great objecs he had in view. (Applause.) Personally, the speaker said he had great faith in the masses of the working men. They might make mistakes sometimes, but he was confident their objects were pore and their intentions good, and he believed that they would in the present crisis do their duty, and use their newly-acquired political power for no mere selfish or narrow, or sordid objects, but in the interest and welfare not only of themselves and their families, but in that of their neighbours, and for the tens of millions of fellow-subjects, not only in Britain but in India and elsewhere, and for the rights and liberties of mankind all the world over. (Applause.) The resolution was then put and declared to be curried unanimously. Mr WM. PATTERSON, a working man, proposed a resolution thanking Mr Burt for his address, and recognising the untiring efforts be has put forth in Parliament and elsewhere to secure just rights to the working classes. The resolution also pledged the meeting to use every honest en- deavour to return Mr Williams at ttie head of the poll in South Glamorgan. (Applause.) Mr BROWN, another working man, seconded the motion, and it was carried uuauimously, and acknowledged by Mr BURT, who, quoting the lines of Words- worth, that the gratitude of man had often left me mourning," said that his experiences of public Ilie showed him that not only were people kindly disposed and generous towards him for any little service performed, but also for any intention to do such a service. Mr WILLIAMS then answered several questions written and handed up to the chairman by a person amongst the audience named Keith. The first, with reference to the endeavours of the Tory party to induce the Liberal Government to get General Gordon out of Khartoum, was answered very effectively, the hon. candidate shewing that, had it not been for the Conserva- tives establishing the control over Egyptian affairs, England would never have been involved in the wretchedness and misery which followed. He was glad that Mr Burt four years ago raised his voice against continuing in Egypt. The second question was whether Mr Williams would vote in favour of extending the franchise to ladies and provoked much laughter. The hon. candi- date said he had two sisters on the Leeds School Board, and that he did not fear what had been called the Conservative instincts of women. As soon as they exercised the franchise, which he should be glad to see extended to them, so soon would there be an end of bloody wars and big debts. Would the candidate allow gentlemen who had not passed the third standard to he appointed justice* of the peace-queried Mr Keith. As soon as the counties got a real Sclater-Booth representation, replied Mr Williams, with county affairs in the hands of the people, an arrangement would be made about the unpaid magistracy very different from that now in vogue. The next question was a very big one—Where was the money to be obtained for free education. If from the Im- perial funds, would it not come out of the pockets of the ratepayers. That, replied the hon. candi- date, was perfectly true; in his address he had said that it must come out of the pockets of the people. Nearly two millions steiling was paid out of the imperial exchequer every year to the voluntary national society, and yet the Goyernment had no control. His sister's experience 6n the Leeds Board of the trumpery business of collecting school penoe. had convinced them of the necessity for free educa- tion. (A voice: vuite right.) The sooner the country took the question of education into its own hands the better. (Applause.) The last question had reference to what was called the downright confiscation of the endowments of the Churcu of England, left by pious persons for its sole use. Mr Williams said he would not vote for taking aw;.y these endowments if what was asserted by the questioner were true. Any un- prejudiced man who read history of the endow ments of the Church would know that these endowments were really left for the people- (hear, hear)-left in times when the preeent Church of England, as now established, did not exist—but were taken possession of at a later period for sectarian purposes. (Hear, hear.) He asserted that the Liberals had a right to seek to dissever from its connection with the State that religion which never ought to have be-n connected with it, and to take possession, for the benefit of the whole people, of those endowments which were the property of the whole people. (Applause.) A vote of thanks to the proprietors of the ahed for placing it at the disposal of the meeting, and to the Chairman for presiding, concluded the pro- ceedings.
ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING AT CYMMER. A Torchlight Procession. In the svening Mr Burt addressed a Luge meeting in the Independent Chapel, Cymmer, in support of the candidature of Mr A. J. Williams. Prior to the meeting a most enthusiastic outdoor demonstration took place, Mr Burt, M.P., Mr A. J. Yv Sir John Jones Jenkins, M.P., and others, who u.ad driven from Pontypridd, being met at the railway crossing, Britannia, by a pro- cession of torchlight bearers and a band. At this point the greatest enthusiasm prevailed, the dis- tinguished visitors being cheered to the echo, and afterwards escorted to the Independent Chapel Cymmer, the band playing God bless the Prince of Wales, and other tunes. Mr Idris Williams presided, and amongst those pre- sent at the meeting there were Mr Burt, M.P., Sir J. J. Jenkins, M.P., Mr and Mrs A. J. Williams, Mr Morgan B. Williams (Swansea). Mr and Mrs J. H. Jones, ond M* Edmund Thomas. Owing to the crowded state of the chapei, and the large number outside, the question ot holding an overflow meeting was introduced, but not further entertained. The CHAIRMAN, after some introductory re- marks, called upon Mr BURT, M.P., who moved the first resolutioa as follows — This meeting desires to express its gratitude to the Right H011. W. E. Gladstone, M.P., and his colleagues in the late Liberal Government for the franchise which we are about to exercise, and its hope and belief that he will be returned to power by an overwhelming majority, in order that he nay carry forward the Liberal programme of progress and reform. (Applause.) There were only two things, he remark, whicM would have brought him to that meeting. They were his per- sonal friendship of a very olose kind with Mr Williams, and an entire, or almost en- tire, political agreement between himself and the man whose candidature he was there to advocate. (Loud cheers.) Since he had promised to address a meeting on behalf of his friend, Mr Williams, he had received a very strong and pressing invitation from a gentleman whose friendship he had long enjoyed, and whose character he very much ad- mired, to address a meeting on his behalf. He referred to his good friend Mr Abraham—(ap- plause)—who was contesting a division in that part of the country. He was obliged to decline that invitation because he was overwhelmed with other engagements. Although Mr Abraham was a labour candidate, he (Mr Burt) had never advocated labour candidates as such. That WaI, he laid down this general principle, which he enunciated when he came forward at the request of the majority of those who were now his consti- tuents at Morpeth—that a man should be sent to the House of Commons, not because he be. longed to one class or another class—(hear, hear) —but entirely on account of his personal charac- ter, his political agreement with his constituents, and his abihty to give, either in the House of Commons or out of it, a full, emphatic, and intelligent expression of the opinions of his constituency. (Applause.) A further principle he had been compelled to act upon was this-to decline to interfertere in any constituency where there were differences of opinion among Radicals with whom he himself was in general agreeement. He thought the best thing was for those people to fight out their differences themselves. In nine cases out of ten, an outsider interfering in a constituency where there were these great differences was more likely to do harm than good. He believed that his friend, Mr Abraham, both by character and ability, and by his great and extensive knowledge of mining questions, would be an invaluable member of the House of Commons, and thert was no man whose return he would mori heartily welcome than Mr Abraham's. (Applause and cries of dissent, in the midst of which the chairman appealed for order.) He had little or nothing to say (went on Mr Burt) with regard to the gentleman who was opposing his friend Mr Williams. He did not know Mr Williams's opponent personally be had heard nothing but what was good of him, so that be was entirely adverse to dealing in mere personalities; but perhaps they would permit him to refer to a letter which only the other day he bad received from the agent of Mr Llewelyn. The agent wrote and gave him information to the effect that Mr Llewelyn was president of the Miners' Provident Society in that locality, and that he had rendered the society very generous support. All that be (Mr Burt) had to say about that was that he was very glad to hear it. (Hear, bear.) But if it was implied-he did not know whether it was-that because Mr Llewelyn occu- pied that honourable position, therefore the con stituency should vote for him, or be (Mr Burt) should speak for him, he altogether demurred to it. He admitted that the presidency of the Miners' Provident Society was in itself some recommenda- tion to Mr Llewelyn-it was one thing in his favour —but there might be hundreds of things against him—(laughter)—and the probability was, as re- garded Mr Llewelyn's political opinion, he wa. not at all in agreement with the great majority of those whose suffrages he was now seeking. Mr Williams had referred in his address to three amendments in the Mines Regulation Act. One of those was to give the miners absolute power to select whom they would to represent them on the pit bank as their check-weighmen. (uheers.) In 1872 they had the utmost difficulty in getting a clause in the Act passed. The employers wanted to limit as far as possible the choice of miners, and ultimately it was agreed that that the check-weighman must be for the time being a man employed not necessarily in the same mine but by the same firm or company. That, on the face of it, seemed somewhat fair, but they had a great number of cases in which the employers wanted to get rid of the checkweigh. man. If they had not been able to effect their end, they had given notice to the whole of the men connected with the colliery, and had imme- diately afterwards engaged them again, with the exoeptioa of the one checkweighman.
