"BY THE SWEAT OF THY BROW." Strive fellow-pilgrim for short is thy dtty, While many &%vb tempests thy breast must needs brave, By the sweat erf thy brow, toil on thy way, There is no true Sabbath this side of the grave. 'Tis a watchful foe—a stubborn campaign, Yet priceless the palm and the aim is sublime, Eternity's chaplets are hung on the goal. To welcome the brave from the struggle of TIlDe. Alas for young hearts that beat with delight, To the ideal flights of an earth-chained soul, Planting the favourite seedlings of Time, And rev'lling in hope ere the futureunroll; 'Tit a short-lived spell, too soon ye will find, Ye have sketched on the treacherous sands of dreams, Te will vainly sigh through a wintry life, out withering hop os, for the vernal beams. Can Paridfoe bloom on the rocks of sin, Can its amawinths smile in the zone of death, Encircling this itosolate, fallen world. Can its balms CIY exist with an upas breath True there are gardens where mockery blooms, l ike Eden of old to degenerate taste. The pleasures of sense, the pomp of the world, The bowers of innocence long have displaced. Fair tre the blossoms and luscious the fruit. With death in the honey and death in the core; Music and beautv are wearing their spei s, Hut Eaen has flown fi ^ii mortality s shore Far from the earth immortality s ftree. Yea deep 'n eatli a silailo"-lesi -Iinie i.; its root, Frail heir of death in this lustreless star. By the sweat of thy brow must thou reach its frult. To the yoke of labour thy neck must bow, And lifelong 'tis destined thy bysom roust nurse, With the seal of toil on thy aching brow, The thorns and the thistles of mankind course By the sweat of thy brow toil on thy wav. Remember that I'rovidence succours the wave, Then drink of thy cup, march manfully on, And seek not a sabbath this side of the grave. jj Pwllheli, ARIiUL

otir -I THE HAND-BOOK FOR THE IIAN OF BUSINESS—Lon- don F. Pitman. This is an extension of the Handy Guide for Drapers and Haberdashers," issued by the same publishers,— whichwe have no hesitation in raying, ought to be in the hands of every youth, intended f<»r "business" of any description and the man engaged iu trade will find it no unsuitable or useless companion. The "nthur "has been for many years," ho tells us, in his Preface, eii- gaged in commercial pursuits." He appeal's to be well acquainted with all the duties of a commercial man; and his Hand-Rook cotitaius instruction and information of the greatest interest to that class. He treats of the importance and honourable character of commerce of entering in business of the qualifications for a man of business of "the purchasing and the selliug of goods of the arrangement of stock; of "business assistants," money matters," and "intervals of business;" concluding with u sundry useful lists and tables," which the business man will tind very convenient to have at- ways at his elbow. Under all the heads we have enumerated, the advice given and instruction communicated, is alike sound, sensible, and practical: one brief extract—and the same tone runs through the book—will prove the truth of our remark. In earnestly recommending "integrity, which comprehends soundness of principle, faithful- ness, lioiiesty,tlie author saYd-" it should be re- membered, that it is the duty and even interest, of a man to be honourable as well as honest. Honesty pays, as well as demand, what is legally due; but it is a cold- hearted kind of virhw -eonllnencl:tble in itself, but not so pleasing as a liberal and honourable feeling, There is as much difference between the two, as between arith- metic and poetry. Honour is as necessary to the man of business as courage is to the warrior, impartiality to the judge, fidelity to the wife, or sincerity to the friend and a person violates this principle, when he does what, in his calm opinion, or the judgment of another, would lower him in the estimation of honourable men." :BL,\CKWonD's MAGAZINE for May. Edinburgh and London r m. Blackwood and Sons. v A new tale is commenced in Maga,"— Sir Brooke FossbrooKo" which opens iu Ireland, and the portion given is diversified with incident and delineation of cha- racter.—A review of Percy Fitzgerald's Life of Lau- rence Sterne," does justice to the author of Tristram Shandy, who has been greatly misrepresented. Mr. Thackeray beingone of the latest critics, who, in a paper which the writer in Blackwood terms pleasant," but "stinging;" and which we think possesses muchtmore of the latter character than the former, has left poor Sterne writhing before us as the clever, grinning whin- ing mountebank,' whom lie, for his part, would have decorated with laurel and put in the pillory at the same moment. There is another of Cornelius O'Dowd's agreeable papers; a continuation of "Miss Majori-I anks's career at Carlingford; a somewhat dull, though very able paper, on The nitte of Interest," which the writer conclusively "hews is not under our present mo- netary laws, regulated by natural causes, but by the artificial fitters imposed by a legislative monopoly;" the 3rt! part of Piccadilly an Kpisode of Contempo- raneous Biogronhy; a poem, "To a Lark," and an excellent paper '111 The State of P,t-tieq." The entire number sustains the high character of this popular pe- riodical. LONDOS SOCIETY for May, 18G. Loudon: 9, St. Bride's Avenue, Fleet street. This is a very entertaining number of a periodical, which is rapidly making its way in all reading circles; at which we are not surprised, as take it for all in all," we think it the best of the magazines published at the price which Mae Milton's Magazine," first rendered popular-oue shilling-The articles are too numerous for us to name them all; but we may mention as espe- cially deserving of praise, the New Phase of an Old Story," "How we saw Cherbourg," The Ladv in Mus- lin, (wliieli is c(iiie l ti d t?( i ), tin," (whie)t it conceded), Th" Merchant Princes of England," and "An Excursion Extraordinary, or a Bird's Eye View of Africa." There are, also, some cu- rious anecdotes in the Souvenirs of a of Fa- shion," —whose reminiscences of many celebrities now almost forgotten. We quote one of the anecdotes which the writer relates: I "I knew Mrs. Jordan, the most charming come- I dienne our stage ever boasted. Nesbitt (Lady Boothby) came nearer to her in the nngmg laugh than any other woman, but Mrs. Jordan's jollity and espiej/krie were incomparable. She used to do the most daring things. I remember one being at Drury Lane, when George III. went to the theatre in tate. On either side of the royal box were two beef-eaters as sentinels. One of them stocd with his legs wide apart, Mrs. Jordan played The Romp,' in 1. ove in the City.' She had a doll in her hands, and wanting to bo up to some other mischief, she was at a loss to know what to Jo with 1(1 poup$et so she popped it down between the yeoman's legs. The roar which followed induced the old King to look over the box, and, when he saw the joke which the Thalia of the hour bad perpetrated, he joined is the mirth of the audience. Her Majesty was shocked at the violation oi etiquette, and looked, if possible, more starched than ever She was a atr.uige combination of goodness and severity-the very essence of propriety, lId not wanting in the chanties of life, but most exact- ing in relation to her suite. The illustrations to this number of" London So- ciety," are numerous and good. THECHuncHKAX's F.\MthYM.AG.ti!ME fur May. Londoa James Hogg and Sons. This is a most appropriate companion for the Church- man as it supplies reading for a family, at once attrac- tive and instructive. Too many writers on serious sub- jects, invest their articles in a mantle of dnllueSl!>; bllt this is by no means the case with the contributors to this periodical; who preserve a happy m ditini avoid ing alike flippancy, and undue sternness and severity. Of the papers in the present number, those on "Onr Bishops and Deans," What I heard at Lambeth Pn- lace," A Popular History of the English Bible," and "Our Clerical Club," are perhaps the best. The first treats of Dr. Colenso; and it is written in a truly liberal spirit,regretting that dergrrnan's attempt to discre- dit any part of the Bible, while it does justice to his conduct and character. In the-following closing remarks all must agree :—" How happy would it have been if even on his own ground Dr. Colenso had followed the inspiration of his better thought. Even supposing that the difficulties of the OH Testament where insn- perable to his mind, he might have considered that he had already sketched out for himself a brighter destiny —a more illustrious part than his disastrous publications could have insured for him. How noble and pure a fame would have been his if he had recognised a deeper value in practical work than in bewildering speculation, and followed out the brightness of tto6 thought which urged him to carry the blessings of Christianity and civilization into the interior of Africa- Better snre]y this, than with the knife of a remorseless logic to have severed the links that bind a single human soul to the hope of everlasting life." Better indeed And with the Bishop of Ely we say, "how earnestly it is to be hoped and prayed, that one of such a fervid and intrepid spirit may yet turn back from the dark shadows and perplexed paths of this unhappy aberration." Bow HELLS, for May. Loudon: John Dicb, 313, Strand. This periodical is indeed a marvel; the publishers give so much of literature, music, and artistic illustra- tions for so little luotiey. Its price is only sevenpence and independant of the illustrations, there is aboutrdou- ble the quantity of letter-press that we find in any of the shilling magazines whilst the quality is not infe- rior. The editor does his work carefully aud well; and a more ably diversified periodical does not pass through our hands. Perhaps the tales are a little too sensational; but those we have read never offend against propriety; and they abound in interest. No one can begin the Home Angel," or Woman's Battle," with- out Wishing to go oil with them. There are, also, com- plete tales in each number; with Fashions and Patterns for the ladies; and pieces of original music. We repeat —the periodical, at its price, is a marvel. THE LAPIES' TREASURE, for May. London Houlston and Wright. Mrs Warren has again brought out an excellent num- ber of her Treasury" for the ladies. "How I Ma- uaged my Children from Infancy to Marriage," is finish- ed; and it is to be issued, we see, in a separate volume, It contains excellent lessons on domestic economy and we believe families brought up on the principles there laid down could scarcely fail of doing well. The tale of The Legacy," is continued; and there is an interesting account of Miss Landon, taken from the "Atlantic Monthly." There are topograliical articles; patterns for "needlework," the "Fashions, and "Gossip about Flowers and Plants," all illustrated. The article on Miss Landon, (whose poems, under the signature of L.E.L." were so deservedly popular), is by Mr. S. C. Hall. He says of that lady :— I have rarely known a woman so entirely fascinating as Miss Landon and this arose, mainly, from her large sympathy. She was playful with the young, sedate with the old, and considerate and reflective with the middle-aged. She could be tender, and she could be- severe, prosaic and poetical, and essentially of and with whatever party she happened to be among. I remember this faculty once receiving an illustration. She was taking lessons in riding, and had so much pleased the riding master, that, at parting, he complimented her by saying, '.Well, madam, we are all born with a genius for something, and yours is for horsemanship.' —One of the many writers, who mourned her wrote, Apart from her literary abilities and literary labours, she was, in every domestic relation in life, honourable, generous, dutiful, self-denying, zealous, disinterested, and untiring in her friendship. It would be difficult to fuid a woman deserving of higher praise. OUR OWN FIRESIDE, for May. London: Wm. Mac- intosh. There is great care evidently taken in the editing of this periodical. All th" article, may be read by young or old itii(l, if read in a proper spirit it is impossible to rise from its perusal without good result. They 1nust influence the feelings and affections of all sincere readers, and that in a right direction. They are not, however, all dry, dull, aud didactic there is variety to cheer and even amuse, as well as instruct,—and we have great pleasure in every month calling the attention of our readers to the work, as a most suitable companion for the Christian fireside. We especially direct attention to the article in this month's number entitled" Home," by the Rev. J. \I'Coiiiiel Hussey, YLA., incumbent of Christ Church, North Brixton. If all homes were con- ducted on the principles here inculcated, how happy they would be!—The papers entitled ltebekah's Tempta- tion, and those oil China and the Chinese," Geolo- gical Rambles," aud Voices from the Insect World," are also eminently deserving attention. CASSF.LL'S PERIODICALS AND SERIALS, for May.— London Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, Belle Sauvage Yard. This montit we have the first part of Cassell's illustrated edition of FOXE'S BOOK OF iNl,RTYRS, -in whose lives and deaths most practical lessons on truth and holi- ness are to be found." This work will be a greater boon to the religious public, than even The Pilgrim's Pro- gress," and The above Wti-I)ectiise it is, at present, much more difficult of access than those works were before Cassell's Illustrated editions appeared. No work can be more important, more interesting; for, as the editor observes, in its introduction," the history of Christian martyrdom, is, in fact, the history of Christ- ianity itself; for it is in the arena, at the stake, and in the dungeon, that the religion of Christ has won its most glorious triumphs.—The work is beautifully printed on toned paper, and the illustrations are appropriate, and in execution, quite on a par with those in Messrs. Cassell and Co.'s other publications. The HOLY BIBLE, the BiBLE DICTIONARY, DON Quix- OTE, GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, the POPULAR NATURAL HISTORY, and the ILLUSTRATED SHAKESPEARE are carried on as they were begun and will, when com- plete, form most beautiful editions of the respective works.—The QUIVER, is an ably and carefully conduct- ed periodical There is considerable variety in the 7th part of the new series, now on our table; and the articles are all calculated to contribute to the avowed end and aim of the work,—to promote Religious, social, and intellectual progress." There are in the parts, 10chapters of a new tale, "Norton Parnell," which is very well written and the papers on the Wisdom of the Pentateuch," The Proverbs of Solomon," The Clapham Sect," and Leaves from my India Note Book," are especially deserving attention.—The ILLUS- TRATED FAMILY PAPER continues all the departments we have before enumerated, as included in the new series and they are well conducted that entitled The School of Self-culture," is especially deserving the attention of youths and adults, who have not had the advantage of a good ed ii c,,ttioii. -'['lie tale of i\iiri,,tm ArkfieI(I is continued, and a new one, Shira," commenced; both are of a high class of fictitious narratives. Since the last monthly issue, the originator of these works—Mr. John Cassell—a man as useful in his day,, as any we have known, and as deservedly respected, lias been taken from us. A portrait and memoir of the deceased are to appear in the next monthly part of the ILLUSTRATED FAMILY IAPLIII and the announcement, we have no doubt, will occasion a great demand for it. The memoir will be written by a minister, who knew Mr. Cassell well, and appreciated his labours. Books and Periodicals for Review to be sent to W. C. Stafford, Esq., No. 21, Neville Terrace, Hornsey Road, London.
| gjmprrta! 1 HOUSE OF LORDS—FRIDAY. Ear! De GREY and KIPON stated, in answer to the Earl of Airlie, that the Ministerial deputation from Ca- nada was in communication with Her Majesty's Govern- ment, and that so soon as the negociations were compe- ted, the result would be submitted to Parliament. On the motion of Earl Stanhope, it was agreed thit, on the nomination of select committees other than these on private bills, notice of at least one day should be gi. ven of the names of the proposed members. The Common Law Courts Fees Bill, the Iuclosure ÐiU, and the Herring Fisheries (Scotland) Bill, were read a third time and passed. HOUSE OF COMMONS—FRIDAY. Mr. IONGLAKE gave notice that in the event of the Borough Franchise Bill being read a second time ht should move an amendment to the effect that the suffrage should not be extended without a further test of electoral competency. Lord STANLEY inquired if the Government intended to bring in a bill during the present session for the transfer of Singapore, Malacca, and Penang from the Indian to the Colonial Administration. Sir C. WooD replied that at present lie was unable to give a, positive assurance on the subject. In answer to Sir L. Palk, Lord C. PAQET said that in a short time he would probably beable to bring in a bill to relieve certain complaints of staff commanders and masters, in the navy. In reply to Mr. W. E. Forster, Mr; LAYARD said that a considerable reduction of duties would take place by the new Zollverein tariff, and the benefit would be1 ex- tended to England; as well as to other countries. The reduction efSicted by that tariff would take effect itr July, whether the'treaty between this country and the Zoll- verein States was completed or not. Mr. A. MIHLS asked the Secretary for India when he would make his annual financial statement.. Sir C. W oOÐTepliadi that at present he-was unable to fix a day. Mr. BRUCE laid on the table a new minute of tIiAt: Committee of Csuncil on Education. The report on taie financial resolutions of the budget was brought up' and agreed to; and in committee of way. and means the Commissioners. of the Treasury were authorised tivraise a sum not exceedimg XI,000,009 by an issue of exchequer bonds. The ATTORNEY-GBNKRAI. obtained leave th-bring in a bill to abolish forfeiture for treason and felony' Shortly afterwards the house was counted out HOUSEQFLORDS.-MoxD.Mf. Lord REDESDALE'gave notice that on Tuesday evening he should call attention to the paragragh of the report of tho Edmunds Committee in which censure was passed upon the select committee to which the question of granting a pension to illr. Edmunds was referred. Earl GRANVILLE gave notice that on the same evening (Tuesday) he should mcve to rescind the resolution of the house conferring a>pension upon Mr. Edtnunds, Lord St. LEONARDfrtrought in a bill to establish courts of arbitration for: the settlement of disputes be. tween employers and workmen. The bill, which was read a first time, provides that courts of conciliation shall be formed under a license- from the Crown, each court to consist of not more than ten masters, ten. workmen and a chairman, the award of such tribunal on any question referred to it to be final. On the Order of the-day for the third reading of the Courts of Justice Concentration Bill, Lord REDESDALE moved as an amendment that no money should be ex- pended in the purchase-of a site, until full plans and estimates were laid before Parliament. The amendment, although opposed by the-Lord Chan- cellor, was adopted anditlie bill was then read a third time. The Juries (Ireland) Bill, was withdrawn on. the un- derstanding that the Lord Chancellor would ascertain whether the venue coula, bo changed in certain Irish cases. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—MoNBiiY. I Mr. WHALLEY gave notice that on Tuesday he should call attention to the refusal of the Rev. Mr. Wagner to give certain testimony in the Road murder oase on the ground that the information was imparted to him by Miss Kent in the confessional, and should enquire whe- ther the Government intended to bring in a bill to pro- hibit such persons as Mr. Wagner from officiating as ministers of the Church of England. In reply to Sir S. Norchcote, the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER stated that as great inconvenience and waste of public money resulted, from the limitation of the contracts for dock extoosion at Chatham and Ports- mouth, he intended to bring in a bill authorising the Government to enter inbo contracts extending beyond the votes of the year, if not generally, at any rate with respect to the works in tjuestion. In answer to Mr Caird,.SirC. WOOD stated that he should refuse to sanction the proposed imposition of duties on the principal staples imported from India; and the right honourable baronet added in reply to Mr. Crawford, that it was not contemplated to raise any large-sum for India by loan. The adjourned debate on the Borough Franchise Bill was resumed by Mr. GREGORY, who expressed his belief that public opinion in this country was averse to sweep- ing changes in the direction of democracy, and that the Government had acted wisely in not trying to force a reform bill on the house. Sir G. GltEY, on behalf of the Government, supported the motion for the second reading of the bill. He de- clared that the present Cabinet was not averse to neces- sary constitutional changes, and attributed the delays, which have hitherto occurred in legislation on this sub- ject to vexatious opposition on the part of the Conserva- tives, and not to apathy on the part of the Ministry. The Government, however, did not desire that its vote on the bill before the house should be regarded as pled- ging it to support a large measure of Parliamentary re- form. After some remarks from Mr. W. Forster, Sir P: Goldsmid, Mr. Liddell, Mr. Buxton, and Mr. Stansfeld, Mr. HORSMAN warmly supported the views enunciatod by Mr. Lowe last week. Mr. DISRAELI regarded the bill as a proposal to redis- tribute political power in boroughs, and he therefore op- posed it. On a division, the bill was rejected by 288 votes against 214. HOUSE OF LORDS.—TUESDAY. A motion for the second reading of the Union Officers (Ireland) Bill was opposed by the Earl of Donoughmore, but affirmed on a division by 73 votes against 76. Lord REDESDALE called attention to the report of the select committee on the Edmund's case, and complained that it reflected unfairly upon the Parliamentary offices committee. He said that the last-mentioned committee had not been informed by the Lord Chancellor of all the facts of the case when Mr. Edmunds' petition for a pension was under consideration, and the committee had consequently been placed in a painful and difficult position,. His Lordship moved resolutions in accordance with his statement. A debate followed, in which Earl Granville, the Earl of Derby, Earl Russell, and other peers took part; and as the speakers generally vindicated the parliamentary offices committee, the resolutions were virtually with- drawn. On the motion of Earl GRANVILLE, it was agreed to rescind the resolution, granting a peusionof iCSOO a year to Mr. Edmunds. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—TUESDAY. Lord PROBY, the Comptroller of the Household, brought up the Queen's reply to the address in reference to the grievances complained of by officers of the late Indian army. Her Majesty promised that an inquiry into the subject should be instituted. Mr. WHALLEY having called attention to the refusal of the Rev. Mr. Wagner to give certain evidence in the Road murder case on the ground that the communica- tion was made to him by Miss Kent in the confessional, asked whether the Government intended to bring in a bill this session to prevent such persons as Mr. Wagner from officiating as clergymen in the Church of England. Sir G. GREY replied in the negative, and Mr. Whalley then said that on an early day he should bring the sub- tect under the attention of the house. In reply to Mr. Baillie, the Marquis of HARTINOTON said that after the report of the committee on the Arm- strong and Whitworth guns had been duly considered by the War Office there would be no objection to lay it on the table of the house. In answer to Mr. Paull, the ATTORNEY-GENERAL sta- ted that the Government intended to submit to the house a measure for the amendment and consolidation of the Bankruptcy laws. It would not, however, be possi- ble to introduce the bill during the present session. Sir W. GALLWEY submitted a motion with the object of compelling ltail way companies, pending the report of the Royal Commission now sitting, to make arrange ments for immediately establishing proper communica- tion between guards and passengers. After some remarks from Mr. Gibson and other members, the motion was withdrawn. On the motion of Mr. AYRTON it was agreed to ap- point a select committee to inquire into the complaints of the coal miners throughout Great Britain. HOUSE OF COnIONS-.WED)lESDAY, I Mr. NEWDEGATE moved the second reading of the Church Rates Commutation Bill. The honourable gen- tleman after asserting that while the measure was direc- ted absolutely against attempts to despoil parishes of the means of preserving the fabric of the chm ch, it fully satisfied the conscientious objections of Dissenters, re- minded the house that the scheme proposed was not novel. They were simply asked to sanction tha substi- tution of ft e&arge eJ 2d< ia the pound oa real property in lieu of church rates as hitherto raised, and that this provision should, in the first instance, extend to no pro- perty except such as had been assessed to Church rates within the last. seven years, and to such parishes the inhabitants of which had not manifested their oppo- sition to church rates by three successive rejections of such rates on a poll. Sir Charles DOUGLAS moved the rejection of the bill, and Mr. Hadfield seconded the amendment. Sir G. GREY, (peaking as the representative of the Go- vernment, did not oppose the motion, but he suggested that as the present was not a fitting time for pressing the subject upon the house, the bill should be withdrawn. Mr. Kinglake and Mr. Collins opposed the motion, as did also Lord J. MANSERS, who thought that as the measure was not at all calculated to satisfy the Church, or conciliate Dissenters, it waa simply a waste of time to persevere with it. On a division, the bill was rejected by 125 votes a- gainst 42. Oil the order of the day for going into committee on the County Voters' Registration Bill, Mr. HUNT prpo- sed that the provisions relating to the powers and duties of revising barristers should be extended to the case of registration in cities and boroughs, The motion was then agreed to. The house then went into committee, and passed the bill, but not before an amendment was adopted to the effect that the maximum penalty to be inflicted upon persons making fictitious objections should be 95. .VI r. W. MIIXHR obtained leave to. bring in a bill to amend the Act for the abatement ofSmoke Nuisances.

THE LATE ADMIRAL FITZROY. Admiral Fitztoy has died in harness, and, like many another noble English worthy, his whole life had been full of activity. For six-and-forty years' be bad been in the employment of the State. Born in' 1805, he was but a boy of fourteen when lie entered the- navy, and al- though in the very year of his birth the crowning victory of Trafalgar had practically ended the long- sea-struggle against France and Spain—although it was never his fortune to go into action under such men as'CoIlitigwood (ir Nelson, he found in the scientific part of' his profes- sion an ample scope for his ability, industry) and zeal. Before he was six-and-tWenty his name was written upon the map of the world for, after he had discovered a large inland sea in the- Straits of Maghalhaen, the ap- pellation of Fitzroy Channel" was given tv, the inlet which connected it with another vast salt-water lake. His most famous voyage- was that in the little-Beagle, a vessel of about two hundred and thirty tons —sn expedi- dition rendered memorable not only by his own surveys, i but by the researches of his naturalist, the illustrious Charles Darwin. After nearly five years had been spent in this voyage of circumnavigation, the Beagle, with all her garnerad scientific treasure.?, cast anchor again in Fhlmouth Farbour in October, 1836. Of the naturalists' labours, it was said by tbe-Pm. ident of the Geological Society, I cannot help considering this voyage round the world as one of the most important events for geo- i logy which has occurred for many years;" whilst the ill Sailing Directions for South America," which derived its charts from Fitzroy's surveys, sufficiently attested the professional value of the Captain's labours. In due time t;he sat in Parliament; subsequently he governed New Zealand for three years and' more recently his name has become a household word in connection with his meteorological observations and forecasts. The science to which he more particularly devoted his attention is still in too rudimentary a condition for us to attemt an exhaustive estimate of his contributions to its progress. The Admiral was not a lucid writer his Weather Book," and other publications, whilst al- most invaluable as storehouses of fact, were not of a kind to take the fancy of the general reader and it was, of sourse, always easy to misrepresent his labours as barren in practical results. Now that even those who under- valued him are hushed into sorrowful, awe-silence,, we may at any rate repeat what we have invariably main- tained—that few official departments ever did so much good at so little expense as that over which Admiral Fitzroy presided. He was himself amongst the first to gonfess that his prognostications could not always be re- Bed upon they were simply deductions from, the weather-facts known to him, that knowledge being, by the very conditions of the study, incomplete; but if now and then his telegraphic cautions may have made a collier miss her market, they were nevertheless effectual to save hundreds of lives. He never assumed an infalli- bility as a prophet," but of the real, actual value of his service no rational man can entertain a doubt. He ranked beside Maury among the leading scientific sailors of the day and although in the British navy it wiH not be difficult to find a worthy successor for him, he will always be honourably remembered as one of the great pioneers of meteorological scienee. To him all this, now matters nothing but it matters much-it is supremely important to ourselves that in no grudging spirit we should acknowledge the splendid value of his work-that should recognise his self-sacrificing devotion, his-high isense of duty,.his genial, sailor-like honesty of heart and frankness of speech. Deeply as we lament the awful ;manner of his death-sorrowfnlly and reverently as we contemplate so tragical a termination to a noble career, we can hardly speak or think.of his life as gone, while ao much of it survives in the benefits bequeathed to us by his teaching and example and the recollection of his patient toil soothes, even if it also intensities, our re- gret for his loss But his best mourners, after all, will be the sailors of Great Britain, who, as they coast along the shore under a darkening sky, and mark on cliff or headland the signals that have been hoisted to warn them of the coming storm, will often, whilst speeding to a friendly, harbour or making ready to face the gale in the open sea, remember the good old Admiral, and grieve with a manly sorrow- for the fate of Robert Fitz- roy.—Daily Telegraph.
I CRYSTAL PALACE. The Season this year opens under the most auspicious circumstances. Fully convinced that the most liberal policy b that which will render success at the Crystal Palace most certain, the Directors, in annor.iicing a uni- form Guinea Season Ticket, have put forward a list of attractions which may be truly said to be unequalled for their extent and character. Ten Opera Concerts, com- prising the entire Artistes of the Royal Italian Opera, and Her Majesty's Theatre, will be givenion Saturdays during the coming three months. The Great Flower Show of the season will take place on Saturday the 20th of May. The Great Rose Show, the German Gymnas- tic Fete the Dramatic College Fete, the Archery Fetes, with a Grand Pyrotechnic Display, and many other great gatherings, including that of 5,000 Singers of the Metropolitan Schools, on Wednesday next, conducted by Mr. G. W. Martin, will also be held. When it is borne in mind, also, that the Guinea. Season Tickets ad- mit to all the Winter Saturday Concerts, of which, last year there were twenty-six, beside-, the other days of the year, it will be seen what an ample-store has been pro- vided for the Season Ticket Holders during the coming twelve months. It is not to be wondered at, therefore, that the Season Tickets already taken out Jiave gmatly increased in number. The increased Railway facilities from all parts of the Metropolis, as well as the LineB leading to all parts of the suburbs, have brought the Crystal Palace within easy reach of thousands, hitherto debarred from frequent access to it. As the New High Level Station is nearly completed, these facilities will be shortly immensely increased, and there is little doubt that the Season now opening will be one of unusual prosperity to the Crystal Palace. The Handel Festival progresses in the most satisfac- tory manner. The alterations made in the corner galle- ries were completed and tested on Good Friday with great success. Many hundreds of excellent additional seats have by this means beee provided Oil the floor of the Centre Transept. It has been decided by the Di- rectors that the Shakeepere House shall be removed, and it is intended to raise the seats near the garden front of the Great Transept, which will doubtless com- mand for them a ready sale. The Tiekets for the Great Rehearsal have also been issued, and they are being sold very rapidly. A n interesting Carte de Visite Photograph of the Four Thousand Performers, published for the Crystal Palace Company by Messrs. Negretti and Zimbra, has been circulated free throughout the country by hun- dreds of thousands. The Easter series of rehearsals of the various country contingents of the Handel Festival Choir has just been concluded. A deputation from the Committee of the Sacred Harmonic Society, accompanied by Mr. E. Prout, B.A., one of our most able of chorus masters, has visited many of the choirs residing in the South-wostern, wes- tern, and midland districts, embracing a tour of nearly one thousand miles. The Committee report that the country division of the chorus thus visited Wail never in a more efficient condition, leaving no doubt that the zeal and energy of all concerned, are in no way abated, and that the Handel Festival," although it may not now present tho charm of novelty, has acquired the more solid and stable claim of a settled institution in which it behoves all concerned to furnish to the public a due representation of the musical skill of the day in its fullest developement and progress. A similar series of rehearsals will take place at Whitsuntide, and will embrace a further section of tho midland, also the south-eastern and northern districts. Several cathedral cities and other important placei not hitherto represen- ted will send deputations to the forthcoming Festival. The Season therefore promises, not only the greaeat success for the Handel Festival, but one of the most successful Seasons on record for the Crystal Palace.
