Complainant then proceeded the polling station in the National Schools, and ter he had recorded his vote, he was coming |lto the yard when he saw the two defendants. J'^rrby asked him why he had struck him with umbrella, and Lawrence said, Hit the if you do not hit him I will." Lawrence :;Qen pushed Harrhy on complainant, and jfte latter struck complainant on the shoulder. rence also struck complainant from behind on "J16 ear, and brought him to his knees. His bat knocked off, and was kicked about by defen- [J^its.

Alarming Lift Accident. I ELEVEN PERSONS INJURED. Shortly after ten o'clock last night a serious accident occurred at Messrs Lewis's new estab- lishment in Corporation-street, Birmingham, owing to the fall of an hydraulic lift. Eleven persons were injured and taken to the hospital. The assistants of the firm employed in the grocery department at the top of the building had been working overtime in preparation for Christmas, and being in a hurry to descend, 11 of them crowded upon the lift, which is raised and lowered by a wire rope passing over a pulley at the top, and worked by hydraulic pressure. Either owing to the excessive weight or to some defect in the apparatus, the wire rope snapped, and the lift and its occupants fell from the third storey, at 1 ast 40ft. in height. The shock was terrific, and the whole of the assistants were more or less injured. They were removed as quickly as possi- ble to the General Hospital, where it was found that most of them had sustained fractured limbs or sprains. A Press Association telegram, received to-day, says ;—The lift accident at Lewis's, Birmingham, last night proves not so serious as at first thought. The lift in question was not the passenger lift, but one for goods purposes. Two persons ia the hospital are progressing favourably. The injuries of the others are not deemed serious. The passenger lift at the establishment is a very popular institution, and the report that it had come to grief cause considerable sensation, and brought multitudes of inquirers.
A New York Romance. In an obcure lodging-house in the Bowery lives an old gentleman of ancient and historical line- age, a graduate and former member of the Senate of the University of Cambridge, England, at one time an active clergyman of the Established,Church of that country, who laboured for years in the densely-populated manufacturing districts of Lancashire and Yorkshire, and for many years the senior of a large staff of curates, in fact what would be termed in this city Vice- Rector, of the most fashionable and one of the most populous parishes of London. From this position he retired with honour about a quarter of a century ago, his doctrinal views on the subject of religion having undergone a change based upon conscientious conviction. Ordained by one Arch- bishop of Canterbury and offered preferment by the successor to that See, he nevertheless resolved in his maturity to seek a living by other means more congenial, and took up literature as his pro- fession. He is the author of some standard works, published in England, and imported into this country, and to be found at most of the public libraries, where reliable text books relating to the decisions of some very important and interest- ing social problems are kept. The author always had a penchant for elucidating Jhe principles of jurisprudence, which he had carefully studied. The ancient lineage of this gentleman, who is now in his 71st year, is, perhaps, his least recom- mendation, but the undoubted fact is not alto- gether without significauce that in the first half of the 14th century his ancestor was Grand Jus- ticiary vf England and proxy for the whole Parliament that deposed Edward II. For this and other services ren lered Queen Isabella and her son Edward III. the Justiciary was not only knighted, but created a baron by writvinheritablo by female as well as male heirs, which may account for the barony, the third oldest in the kingdom, being still extant and vested in the person of the o'.d gentleman. Although the Grand J usticiary was loaded with honours and riches by the Royal branch he had thus served although estates and dignities were freely and apparently without much discretion bestowed, for though a lawyer he received among other appointment? that of Admiral of the Flest, the tables eventually turned, the tide changcd, the opposite party re- gained power, confiscation followed, forfeiture set in, exile was decreed, and a return to his home was at the ueril of death. But as no act of at- tainder wap passed the barony remained un- affected, and has descended in regular lineal suc- cession ever since. It hasnever been claimed by any descendant of the original grantee, however, for that would have involved a petition to the Crown to issue a writ of summons to the House of Lords, which in times gone by would have re- opened the whole question of treason, and have resulted only in other forfeitures and probably an attainder. The representatives of the ancient baroyy, however, have net been debarred from holding from time to time the honourable posi- tions of members of the Lower House of Parlia- ment and high sheriffs of their county; but, though they eve r retained the rank of gentlemen, their property has, through a series of generations, dwindled away. The wars of the Middle Ages, especially those of the Roses, carried with them death and destruction to the vanquished, the lot or accident of victory oscillating in the balance of overweighted or treacherous scales, and though ever valiant in the field, whether at home or abroad, the family never recovered its former posi- tion, and modern events have nottendedto improve in a pecuniary way the fortunes of this house. This undoubted represen tative of a bygone age sought, not wisely, perhaps, for he was then in the decline of life, to live a useful, even though obscure, life in the United States. He is not un- known in several States of the Ucion, where be has contributed to periodical literature and occasionally to the daily and weekly press. As a diligent investigator and expert in elucidating unravelling intricate and knotty problems more or less connected with social scirnee, he has been sought and retained by public todies and well- known lawyers and legislators, but he is now perishing for want of the necessaries of life, almost without food and clothing, and dependent upon the compasssion and Christian sympathy of the lodging house proprietor for a place to lay his head. Such is one among many experiences of a Bowery lodging house.-New York Times.
THREAT TO PULL A CHURCH DOWN. A singular incident has juafc occurred at Mar seilles. The anti-clericals who made the demon- seilles. The anti-clericals who made the demon- stration outside the church of St. Martin on Sunday last are reported by the Daily Telegraph correspondent to be furious at the delay in the demolition of the building. They held a large meeting on Wednesday night in a public hall, which was attended by several of the Radical municipal councillors. A resolution was passed to the effect that a delegation should be sent to the mayor to-da.y, inviting him to give the bishop of the diocese notice to quit the church of St. Martin in eight days' time, otherwise the anti- clericals intend to adopt the high-handed pro- ceeding of pulling down the church themselves. The demolition of the church has beeu decided pon for municipal improvements.
.I' THE "CLAIMANT." I i The adjourned summoas against the CI Claim- ant," to show cause why he should not maintain his wife, now chargeable to the South Stoneham Union, came on before the Southampton county bench yesterday. The defendant only appeared by solicitor, and it was stated that the summons was served in Soot- and. The master of the workhouse said Mary Aune Castro had been chargeable since Septem- ber 19th, under an order of metropolitan magis- trates. The woman was called, and being asked if she had not two names she aaid she had none but what her husband gave her, and those could not be taken from her. Her name was Mary Ann Tich borne. She had two children in the union with her, the youngest being three years old and the other eight. These were not her husband's, and there was also one dead not his. The chief warder of Portsea prison was called, and said the Claimant was in his charge from May, 1,679, to October, 1884, and upon his evidence the case was dismissed, costs against the guardians being allowed in the case of the chief warder.

Garrotting Outrage by a Returned Convict. A daring garrotting outrage was committed at Kingstown, near Dublin, last night. A Mr Talbot met in Dublin a man named Dwyer, who directed him to the railway station, -ahere he booked for Kingstown by a late train. On arriv- ing at his destination Mr Talbot was surprised to see that his late companion had travelled by the same train. Dwyer followed him, and on reaching a lonely spot struck him a terrible blow on the head, gripped him by the throat, and when on the ground robbed him of his money, amounting to £ 10. A constable, however, witnessed the occurence, and coming up had a desperate struggle with the ruffian, who kicked him in the stomach and knocked hiir down. Hé, however, retained his hold of him till assistance arrived, when the prisoner was fully secured. The accused is a notorious returned convict. Mr Talbot was much exhausted, and had his face severely cut. —— "to
—— Complicated Divorce Case. #Ø In the Probate, Divorce, and Admiralty Divi- sion, yesterday (before Mr Justice Butt and a jury), the case of Philpott v. Philpott and Howe- Philpott v. Philpott was heard. These were con- solidated divorce suits. Stephen George Philpott sought the dissolution of his marriage with Catherine Matilda Philpott on the ground of her adultery with George Howe, with a person named Plimsaul, and men whose names were unknown. The respondent and the co-respondents denied the charge against them. Catherine Matilda Philpott, in her turn, prayed for the dissolution of her marriage with Stephen George Philpott because of his adultery and cruelty, to which charges he pleaded a denial. The petitioner, who was a confectioner and mineral water dealer at Ramsgate, married the respondent in 1874, and there were several chil- dren of the marriage. Mr and Mrs Philpott separated in 1881, but at her earnest entreaties they resumed cohabitation after a short separation, and lived togother down to the beginning of the present year. He alleged that she was a woman of very intemperate habits; that her health suffered in 1881, and again in 1884 that subsequently to the latter year facts came to bis knowledge which convinced him that her immorality was the cause of its having so suffered that in 1884 she com- mitted adultery with a chemist named Plim- saul and that on the 19th of March in the present year and at other times she committed adultery with the co- respondent Howe. Mrs Philpott, in her evidence, denied that she was of intemperate habits denied adultery with Plimsaul, with Howe, and with men unknown swore that her husband had violently assaulted her on various occasions stated circumstances to lead the jury to infer that he had committed adultery with a servant, and asserted that her health suffered in 1881 and 1884 in consequence of the | immorality of Mr Philpott. In her pleadings she charged that he had adminis- tered poison to her, and had been guilty of abominable practices; but as to these charges she was asked no question by her counsel, and did not say ODe word in the witness-box. Howe, a young working man, swore that he had not com- mitted adultery with her. As to Plimsaul, counsel for Mrs Philpott asked why Mr Philpott had not made him a co-respondent while, on the other hand, counsel for Mr Philpott invited the jury to draw an inference unfavourable to Mrs Philpott from the fact that she had uot called Plimsaul as one of her witnesses. Mr Justice Butt, in summing up the case. ex- plained to the jury that, curious as it might seem to the jury, they might find that Mrs Philpott had committed adultery with Howe, and at the same time find that Howe had not com- mitted adultery with Mrs Philpott, or vice versa. Such was the law, and the reason was that while the admission of one of the two parties charged with adultery would be evidence against himself or herself, it would not be evidence against the other party-the party who had not made it. The charge against Mrs Philpott of adultery with Howe mainly depended upon the evidence of her husband. On the 19-th of March last Mr Philpott arrived at the house in which he and his wife resided at an iftrHej hour in the evening than was usual with him. His account was that, entering by the back door, be reached the kitchen, in which he found his servant girl and a man named Wood, who was a friend of Howe; that from the kitchen he passed into the parlour, where were Mrs Philpott and Howe, she sitting on Howe's knee, and that seeing him enter his wife turned up the gas, which had been turned down, and Howe endeavoured to make his escape. The circum stances of Wood being in the kitehen with the servant and of Howe being in the parlour with her mistress were not in controversy, but other circumstances connected with the affair were distinctly in dispute. Mrs Philpott and Howe denied the attitude in which the husband said he found them, and she denied that the gas had been turned down. Of course, the suggestion of Mr Philpott was that Wood f^d the servant were in the kitchen in order that Mrs Philpott and Howe might be alone. On the other hand, Mrs Philpott stated that she had sent the girl into the kitchen to stir the fire but one could scarcely see how the girl required the as- sistance of Wood to stir the kitchen fire. There was no further evidence against MrsPhilpott on the charge of her adultery with Howe, except that she admitted having asked him to the house and had not informed her husband of it; but as to the charge against Howe, though he denied it in the witness-box, two witnesses had sworn that to them he admitted it a few days after the 19th of March. As to the charge of adultery by Mrs Philpott with Plim- saul, evidence had been given to support it with which the jury would have to deal. The charge of adultery against Mr Philpott depended entirely on the evidence of bis wife, and the only evidence given in support of her charge of re- peated assaults by him was that of a maid- servant, who swore to his pushing Mrs Philpott out of his house the day after that on which he found Howe with her there and accused her of adultery with the co-respondent. The jury, after a short consultation, found that Mrs Philpott had committed adultery with Plimsaul and the co-respondent Howe, that Howe had committed adultery with her, and that Mr Philpott had not been guilty of adultery or cruelty. Mr Justice Butt, on Mr Philpott's petition, pronounced a decree nisi, with costs against the co-respondent Howe.
