IMPORTED UNDER LEASE FROM THE CROWN. THOUGH the experiments with KOORIA MOORIA GUANO were made late in the season, and under adverse circumstanoes. the successful results obtained confirm beyond doubt Professor Arorleker's report-(in No. 41. Part 1, vol. 19, Royal Agricultural Society's Journal"—"That ammoniacal manures, applied to turnips in the experimental field, kept back at first the crop, and had no beneficial effect, either alone or in conjunction with phosphates." The KOORIA MOORIA GUANO is essentially a phosphatic manure, coutaiuiug sllfficicnt ammonia for roots, and, with a mixtnre of ohe-fourth of ammoniacal guano, cannot be excelled for either top-dressing, or grain crops. Deeply in-pressed with the necessity of encouragiug the import of this valuable manure, Her Majesty's Government has given such increased facilities for shipment, that arrangements have been made for a considerable supply. Purchasers can be supplied with suitable quantities from cargoes now on sale, containing from 45 to 66 per cent phosphates.

FOREIGN N3W3. FRANCE. PLOT AGAINST THE EMPEROR. In spite of the gigantic efforts made by the police to maintain the strictest secrecy upon the subject, the fact of another conspiracy against the life of the Emperor has got abroad, and once more served to spread consternation amongst us on con- viction of the insecurity amid which we live. Some bird of the air must surely carry these matters in Paris, for every particular concerning the attempt has transpired, and the anxiety to which the dis- covery has given rise has completely for the moment taken the place of the interest in the war question, which has hither absorbed us entirely. It seems that this new attempt is another instigation of the Mari- anne, and the utter helplessness of the police in matters of this nature was never made so evident as by the details given us of this new conspiracy. On the very morning before the representation of Meyerbeer's new opera, an anonymous letter was received by the Prefect of Police, purporting to come from a person high in office, but whose alle- giance to the Marrianne enabled him to be certain that an attempt was about to be made to assassinate the Emperor on the occasion of his visit to the Opera Comique. They described the personal ap- pearance of the individual who bad drawn the lot which designated him as the instrument of the ven- geance of the Marrianne, gave his name at full length, told that he came from Lille where he had been held the meeting wherein had been dibated the subject of this execution, and furthermore went on to say, that the personal character of the assas- sin being weak, and he being subject likewise to re- ligious exaltations, it would be an easy task to work upon their religious scruples, and the most import- gnt revelations be thereby obtained. The writer was of opinion that the assassin would most likely be found in the nearest church during the greater part of the day, and so it proved sure enough. Upon the description furnished by the annonymous correspondent, the individual was arrested in the church of the Petits Peros, at four o'clock on the day in question, and carried off to the Prefecture, where he was submitted to an interrogatory which lasted three hours, and from which, as had been an- ticipated, the most terrible revelations were extort- ed, which are said to have filled the witnesses pres- ent with the greatest amazement not only at the audacious perseverance of the Marianne, but at the utter ignorance in which the police, in spite of its vigilance and numerous spies, must ever remain concerning the machinations of this dreaded asso- ciation. The arrest of several-letter-carriers be longing to the Bureau N. has given rise to the re- port of the discovery of a foyer of conspiracy amongst the honest employes in that line of business but I believe this measure to be merely a precau- tion, in consequence of the warning letter to the police having been posted at that identical office. PARIS, WEDNESDAY,—It is asserted that the re- ply of the Austrian Government to the last propos- al respecting the representation of Piedmont in the Congress has arrived to-day, and Lhat the reply is to the effect that Austria does not object to the ad- mission of Piedmont. It is further stated that the French Government has given its consent to the ap- appointment of a commission for carrying out tbe disarmament, requiring only that it be composed of diplomatic individuals, whilst Austria and Eng- land, on the other hand, propose that it be consti- tuted of military members. I I INDIA. The following telegram from Mr. Mark, her Majesty's consul at Marseilles, dated April 19, 1859, was received at the Foreign Office last even- ing: "Political intelligence, per Bombay, from Bombay, arrived at Suez 1,30 p.m., April 9, 1859. There is no longer any war in India. The rebel armies have been broken and dispersed. Their leaders are fugitives in the jungle. Tantia Topee, the Rao Sahib, the Begum and Rana, are still at large. The rebels are in great numbers in Ne- paul; but Jung Bahadoor has sent troops into the jungle to rout them out. The followers of the Be- gum and Rana are about 8,000. Brigadier Kelly is watching their movements. Oude continues tranquil. A great number of the rebels have sur- rendered. The Nawab of Ferrukabad has been found guilty and sentenced to death. Great ex- citement prevails in Bombay and Calcutta, in con- sequence of the new Customs Tariff. (Signed.) ALFRED S. WALNE, her Majesty's Acting Agent and Consul-General. Alexandria, April 16. "The following telegram was received at the India House last ni 'ght :From H. L Anderson, Secretary to Government, Bombay, to John Cosmo Melvill, Esq India Office, London.—"CENTRAL INDIA.. -1he rebels are scattered in three parties—one with FerozG Shah, not from Bursad, on the agra and Bombay road; another with the Rao Sahib, in the Shahghur district; and the third with Tantia Topee who is said to be at present in the Chumbul and Parone jungle. Maun Singh is near him.

An attempt was made by a Hindostanee armed with a carbine on the life of the Resident when re- turning from the Durba on the 15th inst. (March.) The ball wounded ome of the ministers who was walking with Colonel Davidson. The assassin was immediately cut down. The resident believes that there were no accomplices in the attempt. Bom- bay Presidency quiet. H. L. Anderson, Secretary to Government. Bombay Castle. March -2G ITALY. YVriting on the 7th, the Turin correspondent of the Times expresses his firm belief that the Pied- montese Goverment is bent on war, and that war it must have, or that the Cavour Cabinet must fall, which would doubtlessly be the signal for insurrec- tions in various parts of Italy and perhaps even tor serious disturbances in Piedmont, where above 20,000 emigrants and volunteers from other Italian countries are now congregated, greatly excited, and confident that hostilities are at hand. Count Cav- our would then probably turn on those to whose pacific persuasions, he had listened, and would re- proach them with the consequences of his having followed their advice. War or revolution is the cry in Turin. The correspondent of the Morning Post learns that a courier arrived at Paris on Tues- day with despatches, stating that there is every pro- bability that Austria will attack Piedmont very shortly. Troops are pouring into Austrian-Italy from all quarters. It is said that Austria prefers war to allowing Piedmont to enter the Congress. This must of course be treated as one of the ru- mours of the day. The correspondent of the Herald speaks of the feverish rapidity with which the pre- that parations for war are pushed forward at the same professions are making of a willingness to disarm.— TURIN, IUESDAY— At a Council of Ministers held early this morning, at which the King was present. it was resolved, that in order to give to Europe a proof of the desire of Sardinia to remove the diffi- culties which delay the meeting of a congress, Sar- dinia yields to the demand of England and France, and accepts the principle of disarmament, the de- tails of which she will leave to be discussed in the congress. I THE KING OF NAPLES I Avices have been received from Naples to the 16th inst. After a ternble attack of his malady, the King received the sacrament, and afterwards blessed and bade farewell to his family. General Filangien has been summoned to Caserta. Accord- ing to the Nord parties m Naples were preparing to act, each in its own interest. The Austrian par- ty-which supports the Queen and her son, the Duke of Tram-hopes to penetrate the regime of compression. The masses, on the other hand, pro- nounce for the hereditary prince, round whom the Liberals appear desirous to rally, with a view of ob- taining a constitution, and the participation of Na- ples in the general aliairs in ltalv. I PRUSSI I 1- PRUSSIA. I Prussia and England have rejected the proposi- tion to form a Congress of the four powers alone, if Austria refuses her participation. The semi- official New Gazette warmly approves of this reJec- tion. A telegraphic despatch from Vienna, in the Independance, asserts that the Archduke Albert has succeeded in his mission to Berlin-that is to say, that Prussia supports the Austrian propositions, though continuing to maintain for the present her position as a mediating power. The Prussian Government intends to ask the sanction of the Chambers to a loan of 50,000.000 dollars, to provide for eventualities. Notification to this effect has al- ready been addressed to the Presidentdent of the Lower House, and the formal proposition will be made SHORTLY 4ter EASTER.
AGRICULTURE. -r- HEVIE\V OF I'll E BRITISH CORN TRADE, DURING TllK PAST WEEK. I" (From ? JJark Lane h.cpresis.) -< ? I 1. 1 I- f. There was a toierauiy goou suppiy 01 wuuai ui Marklane on Monday from Kent, but only 1 limited qu.mtity from Esex, alld the condition being irn- proved, CO'nbineii with the warlike rumours fro: Continent, caused rativr more excitement than bar- lioen tixporienced fur some time past. The earliest Niles were made from the Kentish stands, at full prices. The Essex factors demand higher rates. which prevented any activity until towards the close of the farkct, when enhanced prices were paill for a few choice parcels of white, and a fair clearance was effected on thj whole. The aggregate arrivals at Liverpool on Tuesday were 21.478 qrs wheat, y,770 qrs Indian corn, 17,96S, sacks and 22: bar- rel flour against 4,108 quarters wheat, 4.596 qrs. Indian corn, 2,611 sacks and 1,890 barrels filmr, the corresponding week of last year. There was rather a better attendance of buyers, and the (le- mand for wheat was improved, and for good useful samples an advance of about Id per 70lbs was generally realised. A small cargo of French was taken for export, at full prices. Prime sam- ples of yellow Indian corn suitable for export, were about 6d per 480lbs. dr.. and sound white American brought extreme prices. The exports to Ireland of this article amounted to 2,558 qrs. besides 2.027 qrs wheat, 260 sacks and 674 barrels of flour. There were also important exports of wheat and flour to the United States and Canada, and of Indian corn to Portugal amounting to 3,752 qrs. wheat., 2,755 sacks flour, and 1,586 qrs Indian corn besides 2,456 qrs oats to Australia. The imports at Hull eonsi>ted of 5,638 qrs wheat, 8,595 qrs barley, 200 qrs oats, 4ü9 qrs beans, 56 qrs peas, 600 qrs tares, 10,782 qrs linseed, 212 tons oil cakes, and 853 tons bones. There was a small supply of wheat from the farmers, for which very high prices were de- manded. This checked business, but ultimately nearly the whole was sold at an advance of Is to 2s per qr—average 39s 5d on 1,072 (Irs. Foreign wheat was held too high for the views of the buyers, and business was consequently limited. The arrivals of wheat at Leeds were 2,654 qrs, and a steady de- mand was experienced, at Is per qr over thfi rates of the previous week—average 41s Id on 2,734 qrs. Other articles were steady in value and demand. At Ipswich the supply of wheat was small, and it sold at fully Is per qr advance—average 41s 3d on 877 qrs. There was not a large quantity of barley on sale but the malting season being about over, a decline of Is per qr had to ,be submitted to-to average 33s 7d on 768 qrs. At Lynn, a limited quantity of wheat was brought forward, which met an active demand at Is to 2s per quarter more money on all descriptions—average 39s 5d on 2,823 qrs. At Spalding, a short supply of wheat was brought forward, and prices were 2s per qr higher on all dry samples, and Is per qr on inferior sorts- average 40s 6d on 1,519 qrs. All spring corn was in short supply, and each sort was 6d to Is per qr. dearer. The fresh arrivals of English grain at Mark lane on Wednesday, were limited, but there were moderate imports of foreign articles of the trade. Wheat, both English and foreign, realised Monday's extreme rates, with a fair sale. A moderate busi- ness was transacted in oats, at former prices for all good corn. The Scotch markets have assumed more firmness and activity. At Edinburgh there were smaller supplies from the farmers. Wheat was in very good request, at an advance of Is to 2s per qr. buyers generally appeared anxious to get into stock—average 43s 2d on 1,552 qrs. The best sam- ples of Chevalier barley were 6d to Is per qr dearer —average 32s lOd on 1,038 qrs barley, 81 qrs beans 79 qrs peas, and 3,692 sacks flour. At the close of the week prices were a shade lower, but, owing to the firmer reports from the south, holders were not disposed to quit except at an advance of Is per qr. which, however, was very reluctantly complied with and only occasionally made. laiports up for Glasgow market were exclusively from French ports, and consisted of 7,330 qrs wheat and 3,158 sacks flour. At Grangemouth there were 3,186 qrs wheat, 863 qrs barley, and 318 qrs beans. Wheat commanded more free sale for all good qualities, at very full prices. Flour was held more firmly. At nearly all markets held on Thursday supplies of wheat were moderate, and generally a good de- mand was experienced, at an enhancement in the value of all dry parcels of Is to 2s per qr. For this day's market there were moderate supplies of Eng- glish grain, and a fair addition of foreign articles of the trade. English wheat was sold at fully as much money; and foreign samples were held with great firmness, at quite as high rates. Grinding barley realised previous quotations. A fair extent of bus- iness was transacted in oats prime corn brought Monday's currency readily.
SHEEP BREEDING. We lately stated some facts and data in reference to breeding ewes, derived from the system adopted by Mr. Bond, with a view to maintain a breeding flock on heavy land. That system was one which the occupiers of sheep and turnip land would con- sider to be sheep breeding under difficulties. They sheep referred to were Hampshire-downs. We have now before us a paper read by Mr. Drew at the Kingscote Agricultural Association, (Gloucester- shire,) On the management of breeding Ewes," which has reference to a district and breed of sheep of growing importance. The Cotswolds are de- cidely the best sheep of the day, and their value is becoming more and more recognised. How the manage their Cotswold breeding flocks in Glouces- tershire must, therefore, be a matter of interest to flock -nasters generally. To acquire and maintain a good flock of ewes in good and uniform condition and character requires much judgment and perseverance, combined with care and attention. To select and match the ewes, from year to year, so as to correct as much as pos- sible, in the offspring the defects of individual ewes, until the whole flock has become uniform and sym- metrical. demands the care and labour of years. Here is a description of a model ewe. The ewe should have a straight and broad back, wide loins, deep breast, good neck (or scrag, as termed by some), the head rather long, but not broad, an open cheerful countenance, crowned with a tift of wool, which not only adds to its beauty, but is in a meas- ure a preventive of sore head, and last, not least, a robust hardy constitution." The lambs are weaned in June, a short time after the ewes have been washed and shorn. If the lambs are weaned before the ewes are shorn their milk will not have subsided and any cold taken will inevitably fly to the under and produce serious mischief, perhaps loss of the ewe so affected. The ewes should be removed from the lambs, and taken to a bare pasture out of the sound of the bleatings of the lambs. Their udders must be at- tended to, many of them requiring to have some milk drawn from them for a few days. When the milk has been completely absorbed the ewes should be dipped in a solution of arsenic, sofc soap, pearl ash, and brimstone, to free them from all insects. Such of the ewes as are not to be kept on for stock should be drafted off and placed on better keep, receiving three 3 lb. of linseed cake daily. This will soon fit them for the butcher, and at the same time will much benefit the land on which they are feeding. The first week in October the ram is put to the breeding flock, the ewes having been for three or four weeks kept well. Tbe better their con- dition at this period the more twins are likely to be produced. From fifty to sixty ewes to a ram is said to be a sufficient proportion. In November the ram is removed, and the ewes generously, but not exces- sively fed. Too many roots should be avoided, and a good supply of hay or other dry provender should be given. In wet weather they should be removed from the arable land to dry pasture or sbeds, where they should have dry food. When within three weeks of lambing they should have the most nutri- tious and invigorating food. The lambing pen should be open and dry, sheltered from north-west and east winds, the temporary huts by the side ot the pen are preferred to closer buildings. In a few days they may be turned into a sheltered field or pen. From that period ewes and lambs do best at large on pasture, roots being there given to them. The lambs, when weaned, should be kept through- out the winter. The lambs should be dipped in the autumn. Lambs, when weaned, should be allowed free access to water. ■
REMINISCENCES OF WHLIAJI PITT.-Ia the obituary of last week was recorded the death of Mr. John Bur- field, of Deal, formerly gardener, aged 88 years. In early life he bad in this capacity lived at Walmer Castle, during its occupancy by Mr Pitt, then Prime Minister, of whom the old mm would relate many interesting anecdotes. On being admitted to the household he was apprise d that his bedroom was so situated that he would probably be disturbed by the sounds sometimes to be heard from his master's chamber, of which ( e had soon audible proof. During the silent hours of darkness the great man would iise from his repose, and, pacing his room, appear to be delivering a speech in the most im- passioned manner, his preparation, in all probability, fur a coming conflict in Parliament. The gardens at the rear of the Castle were at this time newly laid out, Mr Pitt taking much interest in the alteration, and givin, personal din-ctions but m the mIdst of these he would become absent, walking to and fro for some time in si- lence, and then (as one roused from a reverie) resume his superintendence, inquiring what he had last planned. During such intervals Buriield never ventur- ed to disturb his master by an inquiry. Trivial as are these incidents, they show that the highest position and the most extended influence cannot be enjoyed without vast and all-absorbing cares.

C donel CiifFord liiude a similar complaint respecting Hereford. Lord Duncau made illq uil y ab.Jut the new liuiiwn tariff, and Sir De L Evans concerning the mortality of troops at Trinidad. Mr W. Williams asked whether it had decided that Lord M ilm- sbury ought to pay dutv 011 1 Lis patent of appointment t) the Foreign-c.'ffiee. Mr M'M.ihon and Mr S. Herbert called attention to the exclusion of Catholic jurors from the trials at Bel- fast. Mr Gilpia asked whether the ltoyal assent had been given to the Jamaica Immigration Bill. Mr Con- ingliam animadverted on some recent purchases of pictures for the National Gaih-ry. Finally, Lord Pal- merston again skd when the dissolution will take place. The Attorn-y-Generai for Ireland denied that the ex- cluded jurors were set aside on account flf their religion. Lord Stanley said, as to the finances oflndia, the Gover- nor-Generel had been oblige i to impose s'),ne additional taxes without waiting for authorizition from the Coun- cil at home. Mr Disraeli promised attention to the pur- chase of pictures; answered Mr Gilpin's question in the affirmative and inf)rmed Mr Williams that not only will Lord Malmesbnry he called upon t) pav the stamp duty but also some of his predecessors in office. As to the dissolution, he would state on Monday the day on which it will take place; but he would say at once that it is calculated the new Parliament will assemble on the 3ht of May. Mr Hadtield was moving for some returns relating to Cabul and Afghanistan, when tho House was counted out at half-past seven. H jUSE OF LORD S.-NIOI;DAY. The promised Ministerial exposition of the affairs of Europe was given in both Houses of Parliament to-night, and there will now be no difficulty in the way of the prorogation taking place to-day, to be followed on 1 Thursday by the disso l ution. Lord Malmesbury's statement has the merit of beina- clear and emphatic, though by no means likely to lead to the belief that the peace of Europe will be maintained. He began the history of the case with what had trans- pired at the commencement of the year, when it came out that France and Austria were at issue about the Italian question. Austria had a perfect right to her pos- sessions in the north of Italy, but she had been guilty of misgovernrneat Sardinia, though a country much to be commended, had mistaken her mission in thirsting after conquest; and France had backed up Sardinia for reasons which it was most difficult to understand. Eng- land being at peace with alt the world, was in a position to mediate, and thus Lord Cowley was sent to Vienna where his mediation had every appearance of being suc- cessful. But it turned out that Russia was mediating with France, and so matters were entirely changed, Russia had proposed a Congress, and England agreed to it and stated the subjects of discussion. 1st. The means of peace between Austria and Sardinia. 2nd. The best way to get the evacuation of the Roman States. 3rd. The accomplishment of reform in Italy; and 4th. The treaties between Austria and the minor States. But up came the question of disarmament, which stood in the way of the assem bling of the Congress. The question as to the constitution of the Congress had been settled but not so the question of disarmament. Austria and France agreed to disarmament, but differed as to the time and manner of it; an.! here the s'ovy of Lord Malmesbury breaks off, with the intimation that if it is the will of r; <l t!i pV-uld broak let siiffcr v.-ho L of bringing U un. Lord Ol-iivn io;i f" u; a few oosernations. He con- demned the conduct of Austria, and gave Lord Malmes- bury credit for endeavouring to preserve the peace of Europe. Lord Derby also made a few remarks, which appear to be little more hopeful than the remarks of T.nr.^ Ma lmoiKnrr. ￼ HOUSE OF COMMONS.-MONDAT. In the COllInans, the speech of Mr Disraeli on the topic is only an amplidcation of what had been explained by the Foreign Secretary but before he concluded he nude a statement of a very important nature, which I Lords Maimesbury had omitted. It was, that in the course of the morning, a special Ambassador had ar- rived in London from Turin, and lind had an interview with Lord Malmesbury. What the nature t;f that inter- view was, Mr Disraeli did not say, and the public will be considerably disappointed that the Foreign Secretary did not even allude to it. The statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer was followed by speeches from Lord Palmerston, Mr Glad. stone, Lord J. Russell, and other members. The ten- dency of all the observations made was in the direction of peace, although Mr Conyngham was of opinion that war could only be temporarily postponed. Mr Dun- combe spoke about the necessity of Sardinia being represented in the C ingress, but Mr Gladstone rebuked him. The House was counted out early, HOUSE OF LORDS.—TUESDAY THE PROROGATION Their ]ordships met to day at twi o'clock. Only six peers were present. The benches on the opposition side were occupied by ladies. The Lords Commissioners were the Lord Chancellor, the Marquis of Salisbury the Msrquis of Exeter, tho Earl of Delawarr, and the Earl r\ f l-l Q.1 n.lrn ui iiuiun ituu. v. HER MAJESTY'S SPEECn I The Lord Chancellor then read the l'ullo wi'nam speech: "Jly Lords and Gentlemen, We are commanded by her Majesty to inform your that it is her Majesty's intention forthwith to dissolve the present parliament, with a view to enable her people to express, in the mode prescribed by the constitution, I their opinions on the stare of public affairs. Gentlemen of the House of VonitHons We are commanded by her Majesty to thank you for the wise liberality with which you have granted the necessary supplies for the military and naval defences of the couniry, and for the provision which you have made for the exigencies of the other branches of the public service duiing the interval which must elapse before the estimates for the year can be considered by the new parliament, which her Majesty will direct to be immediately called. My Lords and Gentlemen, Her M tjesty commands us to inform you that the appeal which she is about to nuke to her peeple has been rendered necessary by the difficulties experienced in carrying on the public business of the countrv. as in- dicated by the fact that within little more thin a year two successive administrations have failed to retain the confidence of the House of Commons and Her Majesty prays that, under the blessing of Divine Providonce. the step which she is abjut to take mny have the effect of facilitating the discharge of her high functions, and of enabling her to conduct the government of the country under the advice of a ministry possessed of the conti. dence of her parliament and people." HOUSE OF -w -1. The Speaker took the chair at half-past one o'clor-k THE MSSOLVTIOX. In reply to Mr Duncombe, The Chancellor of the Exchequer said a privy council would be held on Saturday morning, at which her Ma- jesty would be advised to dissolve parliament, and the writs might go out on the evening of the same day. Shortly after two o'clock the Usher of the Black Rod summoned the House to the House of Lords to hear the Queen's speech rea l. In that House, as will be seen by our Lords' report, parliament was duly prorogued to the o.h of May.
Tap. DESERTER AND run POLICEMAX.—Perhaps one of the most extraordinary instances of credulity on the part of a policeman to bo found on record has just oozed out in a village not 100 miles fc.:m Stanway, and has caused no small degree of gossip and merriment amonCY the inhabitants. It appears that a soldier, belonging to Colchester camp, had been put under arrest by order of the commanding officer for having robbed several of his tomrades of medals and other property, but bein" attacked by illness, he was removed to the hospital by order of his regimental surgeon. From the hospital he effected his escape in the night, without any covering except his shirt. Early the following morning he called on the policeman alluded to, and stated that he belonged to t'e Royal Aitilleiy, was on a recruiting service at Witham, and having been out on the "spree" the pre- vious night, he laid down on the roadside, and whi e in a v stup.f.ed state from the drink he h')ù taken, had been robbed of all his clothes except his shirt. The police- man inquired for l.is repinumtal number, but it was found to have been cut out of his shirt. Moved with compassion with this pitiful tale, the policeman,with an amount of credulity rarely found in one of his class, ac- cepted the recital as triip nnrl t'nrn;"h",l t-h", ncomln. ilvtil. ki uvj witM mi UIOULU liUW pobuuu lcry man with a suit of private clothes from his own ward- robe, on condition that they should be returned as aoon as a fresh supply of uniform could be obtained but the ungrateful scoundrel has not since been heard of.

The question whether a railway com; any is responsible fir damage from a confligration occasioned by flakes from a locomotive was three days ago submitted to the Civil Tribunal of Amsterdam. A 1 idy, named Mercy d' Ar- gentcau, claimed 22,000 florins (46,100 fr.) from the R line Railway Company for the injury done by a fire in 1 fir plantation, her priperty, near Drieborgen, which fir was occasioned by the flakes from the locomotive of an express train. But the tribunal, after hearing plead- in for the railway company, decided that the corn- pa iy was not responsible, inasmuch as the fire must be COaiidered to have been ccused by circumstances over which it had no control. It therefore rejected the ac- tion. This was the first time, it is said, that a question of this kind has been raised in Holland. Horace Vernet is gCling to be married, at the age of 67.
