Lord de Tabley will undertake the office of Controller of the Household, and the Earl of Carysfort will be a Lord in Waiting Lord Torringtun also remains in his Lord in NVaititig I old position at her Majesty's court. Hones are now entertained of the recovery of the Countess o £ Mount Edgcumbe. The Du!;eand L)uche.3s of Abercorn are still at Canues, aud will not returu to Ireland to take a formal farewell. The Solieiltirs' Journal understands that Lord Ha- therley, on behalf of the new government has addressed a letter to Lord Cairns, pressing him strongly to accept the vacant Lord Justiceship of Appeal in Chancery, aud representing that such an arrangement need not iu the slightest degree interfore with Lord Cairns presum- able hostility, in the House of Lords, to the policy of the government. In the event of his declining to re- turn to tbe Lord Justices' Court, the vacant seat would probably be filled by Vice-chancellor Gifi'ard. A shocking story comes from Hartlepool. It appears that a Mrs Charlton, a sailor's wife, put her two chil. dren, one aged three and tho other five years old, to bed on Thursday night, aud went out to make some purchases. She had uot been out long when a woman who occupied a part of the same house became sensible of the outbreak of fire. She gave an alarm, and a sailor who chanced to be passing, bravely rushed up. stairs, aud passing literally through the flallles, which rushed at him as he biirst the door of the room open, he tlok the two children from their bed and ran with them downstairs. Both children had been burned to death before the sailor reached them. He was also severely burned. A writer iu the Haiti) Ncws gives some aetaus or tnea- trical management. The expenses of a large first-class West-end theatre are estimated at from A:420 to f 480 a week. Asa rule the receipts are below the expenses; the loss is made up by some lucky hit, when they are largely in excess. Christmas is the best theatrical sea- son in the year summer is the worst, except when it is wet. About k,500 a year is spent on colours and canvas. The gas bill comes to £30 a week, but at Christmas the moon generally costs the manager X20 a week on its own account. One of the diliiuulties of a manager is getting actresses to play the part of women —they all want to show their legs (usually padded) as fairy princes, and so on. Ballet girls get about 25s a week, And the writer vouches for their morality. The tariff of dramatic authorship varies very much. Three or tive act plays, wlon not paid for by percentage on profits, usually cost from £2iJlI to IORTO, or from X3 to A:5 every night they are acted. The price of a good burlesque varies from jC50 to X120. Farces are seldom worth more than fit)." POLITICAL TREACHE ;Y. ftiR,—In your last paper one tailing himself Consistency c il,i ,,jot, 1110 t<> ex '1101 at myself fnun the above imputation in COar.cciinii with the late ei ction, anil in nrdei to satisfy him t ihulist ae the bare facts of my cue which are evmitiy as Hl- Io«s. viz. -1 unexpectedly-recuiveil a note inviting me to attend \lr l\w ant' committee illr Wyiiii's name not inserted therein) and in my zeal fur Mr Pennant I consequently attended part of t'weo meetings, for about an hour or so in each, ami. timing tlietiine I was present, nothing hut Jlr Pennant's business was done, except in the last, which was held in the afternoon of the 14th of November, when a message unexpectedly airived to the nice ing, about half past tmee p m, that Mr wynn was coming to tianyor that evening, when the Chairman declared that the busiuess of Air Pennant must be laid aside in order to make arrangements to meet Mr Wynn. Upon hea ing this, as I c.insMeieil Mr Wynn's case a separate business to which 1 was not invited, and with which I had nothing to do, I immediately mole up >n my mind to retire and left the room, as a host of th-»e who sit near the door, are witnesses (the room beingprottir fu.l at the time!. Will Consi-itency" and his informants take the trouble to inquire to tins point in order to satisfy themselves that I took care to be clear from Mr Wynu's committees? I never imagined that by joining Mr l'ennant, I was necessarily b Utiit t i join both committees, as I considered them to be diife ent cases, one for the county, and the other for the boroughs. ,„ 1_ T_I _t__A__t.llf. But I can ormg many proois man i acieu suiveieij Pennant from first to last, one proof ia, that I succeeded to bring a rel:Ltivt) froiji Birkeiiiiea(i to Btngor to vote for IiiLa, at a loss of fourteen sMUings to the voter which I am to pay. As to the other chiugo of intermeddling with Mr Wynn's voters. I know nothing at all about it, but as such can be so easily piovtni, 1 beg Consi,tency's" favour to ask his inform- ants to do so, and also that it is not a mean fabrication to injure me in the opinion of Mr Wynn's friends The buxt chirge again-t me may be, that I have bewitched a dozen of Mr W. nn s voters, and calling upon me to disprove it. I see that many in Bangor, far superior to me in all respects, did vote the same as me, and our cases is another proof that that most terrible engine the scriw y seiat" is after all tin Bangor at least! but a bugbear and a scarecrow (Bwgan Brain) which onlv frightens crows and children.—I am, sir, your obe- dient servant, GRIFFITH WM. PREES. Upper Bangor, December 23. IStij*. P.S. I shall no more fight In the dark, as I give my name, my friend must do the same, or I shall leave hia oteervations un- noticed.
