T - ""'tv'S - 12 THE TIMES, SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1861. I ' u. MznjBirioy or tub royal academy. i jyj, i.trf .hJwJ to this toi'i Exhlbt - W Every ocw interested ia srtj fnxioju i to at tha chances in the intenoc dntnbntioa of the bofldinfcMirdl MthdPktowrfthtyetf. Tla ItmtioM i .reeilj to the aratan of the ahfbitor of ptcturw. The anbapetioti had (wen thai the acalptors would have profited moat by Mr. IVnaithome'e changes. Aa far a space is eooceroed, this anticipation is realised. But the lighting sad colovxng of their exhihitioo - roon ere quite as important to the icalptorMiBcreaeM space, xaetr old OBUar if Mnr trantformed into a tpadoo tdte of three rooms. bat instead of that coooeatrated light, so much desi derated by the sculptor, were la now, ia tbe central comparUnent, a conflict of lights, from a high side window, an arched skylight, sad the corridor behind. This tends to Impair all those effects fa aculDtnre which depend on shadow, and. ae if to increase the mischief, the vails are of a light ptnk,tendmg to tiojsx. wntca wires a gooa acau f reflected light, and dimmish the relief of the works disposed against the walls. The side eom - pertmcnte are entirely lighted from the front, and so escape the conflict of lights which is felt in the centre. In the pictore - rooms the changes are all for the better. The space of the old staircase b distributed entirely between the old architectural and 'miniature (or north and south) rooms. The former is greatly enlarged. The space formerly occupied by the entrance into the middle room ia now appropriated to pictures ; and with this the changes end. In the present article we propose merely to coast along the line, pointing out the most noticeable pictures, mainly in the order of their hanging, that the public may learn the piict da rttittanee of the Academy bill of fare for the year. We begin, with the cataloene, at the East Boom. But a word for the catalogue itself which b " - printed with unusual correctness, and bears a hap - pilyhosen motto from Sir Joshua's Fourth Discourse of special applicability to the tendencies of contemporary art telling us that "the ralue and rank of every art b in proportion to the mental labour employed in it, or the mental pleasure produced by iC" In these days, when minute elaboration b so much insisted upon, it b especially import - antto remind the artist that this labour is only a means to an end, and that however Taluable labour maybe to the painter, it does not of itself give Talne to his works. The student cannot strive too hard or too minutely for truth, down to the least detail, for his own discipline, and aa a means of qualifying himself to paint pictures but pictures are meritorious not by the parade but by the results of labour by the power it rives the artist of conveying the impressions made upon him by nature and of thus transmittins his thoughts to the spectator. This involves quite as much wilful sacrifice as prominent presentment of details ; and the highest attainment in art b to select among details which to put fonrsrdszd which to keep back. The present Exhibition b so fall of evidence of the painstaking conscientiousness of modern study that it b clearly sot in this direction our school most needs ex hortation. The need b rather that we should put toward the intellectual and spiritual aide of the art as that with reference to which works will ultimately be judged and valued. This premised, we may state our impression that the icesent Exhibition though some of the most prominent men of our school are not represented b full of evidence of the large amount of conscientious industry and high mutative skill f of our painters, especially the younger ones. If it contains few pictures which attract a crowd and promise to be a topic of the season, we cannot pass any part of the walls which does not show some work of a young or rising painter that challenges attention on the strength of its own merits. We begin at the door of the East room and follow the figures of the catalogue. (10.) " Luther at Erfurt.' Noel Paton. This b sot the burley, self - confident, triumphant Luther, safe from the proclamation of the theses of Wittem - burg, the controversy of Leipric, and the Diet of Wurms the Luther who has thrown offhis monastic frock sad married the fugitive nun ; the triumphant Wittenberg professor, the friend of Electors and Princes and Landgraves but Luther at 22, the aelf - torx&ented, self - qnestaoningheart - wrung monk of the Augustine convent at Erfurt. Mr. Paton has represented him at early dawn, surrounded by the learned litter of the convent library, frming fIom g quibbles and hairsplittings of the schoolmen to the Epistles of St PauL He erases the vellum - coTerea. iron - clasped folio of the Scriptures with fierce energy, pale cheek, and eyes red with tears and vigils. All the accessories - books, library, furniture, crucifix are painted with the utmost care, so minutely as almost to detract from the dominant interest of the passionate monk. But the picture b an intellectual one, and the details, and their disposition, are all significant. (18.) "The signal - station at Gibraltar." F. R, Lee, K.A. A conspicuous example of the good effect of a strange and unfamiliar scene on a painter accustomed to confine himself to an oft - trodden circle of subjects. Who would recognize the hand of Mr. Lee, the well - known delineator of quiet Devonshire rivers and Tillages and coast scenes, in this savage spine of gray rock, with the stnnted pines that hare found precarious root - hold in the tumbled foreground fragments, running up by precipitous ascents to the flagstaff station, and falling sheer down, in screes ana scaurs, on one side to the sea, on the other to the - fortress, and girdled by the blue Mediterranean far below, its twin bays divided by the neutral ground ; and on the horizon the faint far - off mountains of Africa t Without the catalogue we might assignthe picture to Lear, but not to Lee, whose most original and daring work, ttowerer, it is. There b another, but far less striking riew of Gibraltar from another point (1221 by the same painter, some of his usual Devonshire subjects, and a new of the Plymouth Breakwater, a repetition of a subject he had already painted on a larger scale. (34V "Drinking Fountain." Dobson, HA.W Street fountains promise to be fruitful subjects for our painters. This is about the tenth we hare seen, and ihe best as regards grace and skill of arrangement. The figure of the servant girl who b giving the boy drink from her jug is particularly pretty and un - exaggerated. But Mr. Dobson's butcher boys lack grease, and his street Arabs are too trim in their rags. A little Hogarthiaa directness and honest truth to street nature would be infinitely preferable to this prettifies tion. But prettineas b popular, and it requires rare courage to resist success. (S3). "A Limestone Scar in Swaledale." J. PeeL One of the brightest, pleasantest, and most truthful home landscapes in the Exhibition the sort of picture one would be glad to lire with for its freshness and feeling for nature. (67). " Capture of Smuggled Goods on the Old Antrim Road; Dirty Weather." C. Stanfield, RJL An excellent example of the painter not the worse (or diminished celerity and cleanness of workman - hip, Mr. Btanfield'a skill U never at fault; but Epwftinw it b too apparent and tends to hardness and orer - precision. This picture has none of these bolts. The sky b full of scud and squall and meet, and hsrmnriitns with the work in hand the escorting, by a detachment of horse and foot, of a crew of smugglers, who are being carted off, with their run cargo, to prison ; the man - of - war brig, which has cut off their craft, lies in the offing. (42.) " Duke Frederick Banishing Rosalind and (77.) "Miranda, Ferdinand, and Prospero f F. A. nciersgill, RJL Two examples of the sort of work that the painter can turn out to any amount; Tery dexterous, H"g little demand on hb thought or invention, the ladies in particular of the type to which thepamter b at present exclusively confining himself. There b nothing to say against each work, except that it b strictly of the nature of fins art manufacture. Mr. Hook used to do it, till fSekersefll felt but call to follow suit. (69.) "Hunted Oaves;" B.AnsdeIL A. A runaway negro AmtrnnAg tTmjf ad hb mulatto wife agamst the attack of three Cuban maeHy He has floored one tawny brute with his axe; two Store are baying him. afraid to Tenture within reach f hb blow. Here b Tigour enough, and subject enough, for those who like such strong meat. The effect of the whole would hare been more true to nature had Mr. Ansdall put hb slave into the real ebess of a plantation negro. He might hare still ound room for display of anatomy through the fcatsen that a week fa the dismal swamp asocJd here amply accounted for. It b not Ae "dismal swamp," howertT, of Prof essor Long - fefloe'a renee that Mr. Ansdell has bare painted, but a patch of Indian cornfield, or cane - brake at wildest. But there b great energy about ue picture, and Lbs present orcumsuacee ozua South wiU enhance its interest. (60.) " Gosaina at a Well i" T. Phmhv RJL A group of Berilb peasants, muleteers, te at a street fountain. So sfotrmHU for its local troth of character and colour that we can quite dispense with storr. which b not half such a necessity as second - rat painters are apt to suppose. Very little of a story will supply motives foe expression. (ST.) " Peace," 1051: A. Elmore, BJL A pretty Puritan girl taking off her demure lover's sword and belly to add them to the' trophy of bandoliers, tc. already hung up on the pannfjled walls of her fathers oak parlour. A Tery prettily painted and pleasantly conceived picture. (&4.) "La Venexbna Mrs. H. T. Wells. A blonde head, with a profusion of that red hair which the Venetians loved and painted, with a dress of black velvet, slashed with sattn, boldly relieved against a green background. The compressed lip and eye looked askance indicate dark thoughts. If a lady be the cause of them, she had better keep her glass out of this fair rival's reach ; if a gentleman, he had better keep bis rapier ready for hia defence as he goes home to - night. There are few more workmanlike pieces of painting is the JiXhl - bitkm than thb : in modelling, colourbf . aad ex pression it b equally deserving of praise. It b no objection to the work that the expression b sinister, though it may interfere with the popularity of tbe picture. (9eU "Georae Herbert at Bemerton." W. Dree. R.A., represents the gentle poet - pastor at early grimmer morning, book in hand, among the ivy - dad elms and willows of hb garden, preparing for the contemplative man s recreation, aa we inter rrom rod and creel on the crass br the river side. Mr. Dyce has painted nothing more exquisite for finish and renned sentiment, it is minute worL u you wiU. but the minuteness of a mind that finds its best expression through that channel. The spirit of Herberts own Deauurui lines anacnea to we picture in the catalogue breathes from every part of the picture. We should thins - more gray would be found qualifying the strong greens of the ivy in nature. (10L)" Gondomar" H. Wsllis that wily Spanish Ambassador, watching aa execution (whose!) from behind a window curtain. Hb face b not seen, but the attitude b full of expression, and the colours especially of the drapery of the window aad furniture staffs excellent. (103.) "The Parting of Lord and Lady W. Russell before hb Execution r 0. W. Cope, RJL The same subject and, in the main, the same treatment as Mr. Cope's fresco in Westminster grave, and earnest, sad dignified, by the suppressed emotion of the principal personages. (106.) " Ruins of the Temple of the Sun, Baal - bee;" D. Roberts, RJL In thb picture, as in his " St. Peter's." (168), Mr. Roberts b seen in fsr higher power than many recent picture of his years. The sky of the Baalbeo is particularly fine, and the whole disposition of the masses and light and shade most masterly. An attack by Arabs on a passing caravan gives life and movement to the picture. Many may tV they would have been more impressive in their dreary bolstion upon the arid Syrian Plain. (1G0.) " Marie Antoinette in the Temple;" A. Elmore. The poor dethroned Queen, her beauty gone, her hair gray, her eyes red with watching and weeping, b eagerly prying through a chink in the partition which separates her from her son, during his few hours of exercise. A most pathetic picture, and treated with great sobriety and earnestness. But the sorrows of this poor Queen hare been so worked of late that it b not easy to raise a new emotion out of them. (118.) " Leaving Cornwall for the Whitby Fish - sea Lie, caught at first hand from the pier head at St. Ires. Every group and action true to nature and delightful, because sll the action b taken from the pleasant side of our nature a lusty father kissing hb little one, a careful wife with the bundle of warm clothes for her husband, happy idle urchins lying on their bellies, and gazing over the pier edge right down into the boat that is about to start for the North Sea fishery. It b a relief to breathe the salt air after the close and stifling Temple prison. (131.) " uenerai uxa uyos ; jr. urant, iwa. We do not mean to take portraita in our survey of to - day, but thb b so excellent a portrait that we cannot pass it orer. It is, to our thinking, Mr. Grant's masterpiece, aad grres us Sir Colin himself, traa to ererr wrinkle on his honest brow and every aetau oi jus ireo uu m una uh vjuijiunii the man as he lives. There might be more humorous painting, but in all other respects as nose, expression, character, and likeness the work b one to take rsnk among the valuable historical portraits of the country. (135.) " The Shrew Tamed ;" SirE. Landseer. A tribute at once to Mr. Rarey and the fair horse - tamer, Miss Gilbert, who has so mastered hb system as to have brought the sleek thoroughbred on his side among ine straw, xneiaayiecunesagauut hb glossy side, smiling in the consciousness of female supremacy, and playfullypatting the jaw that could tear her into tatters, with the back of her small hand. For horses read husbands, and the picture b a provocation to rebellion addressed to the whole sex. It shows to what account genius can turn materials that commonplace rejects as impracticable. (169.) "Antechamber at Whitehall, during the dying moments of Charles H. ;" E. M. Ward, R. A. MrTward here paints the scene which Evelyn described as an eyewitness. The King b dying in the room, which u entered under that carved - oak canopy and door frame. He has just taken the Sacrament, and a page b handing in the glass of water that was required to wash down the wafer. The group of bishops Compton, Bancroft, and Hen look on, perplexed ; tcey suspect wnat is pass iner thxt Chmrlea u acaliiur his smritual alletnanoc to Rome in his last moments. Bullion, the French Ambassador, who b in the secret, whispers, with suppressed glee, to one of hb female spies ; cynical St. Evremond looks on from a snug post of observation by the fire ; courtiers and ladies fawn, lounge and gossip about, all profoundly bored, wishing the affair well over, and anxious to get to their basset and ombre again. There b some affected, but no real sorrow ; only one of the King's spaniels, which has been turned out of the sick room, takes advantage of the opened door to make a dash for the bedside. The picture b evidently intended to point the moral of Court hcart - lessness. We could have desired one touch of human feeling to heighten the lesson by contrast. There b a newsletter of the time which describes Nell Gwynn as weeping behind the door. We should have been glad of the relief of Nelly's genuine tears. The picture b all a - blaze with silks and satins, and lace and embroidery, all a - flutter with pulrillised periwigs, and shoulder - knots, and painted fans. It b a work of great size and great elaboration, aad replaces Mr. Ward in the position which he left for a time to paint contemporary Court subjects, which we cannot regret, for his sake or the public's, that he has forsaken. (180.) " Consolation'' A. Solomon. A Breton mother looking sadly at aa empty cradle. The face b excellent in expression, and shows that Mr. Solomon has no occasion to resort to such forcing as he has fallen into in hb other subject from the "Malado Imaginaire." Mtddlx Rook. (218.) "liberating Prisoners on the Young Heir's Birthday" P. EL Calderon. A lesson of mercy read by a rollicking medieval baron and hb dainty lady to their pretty boy, who b giving alms to a set of Tery ill - favoured prisoners. There b much good painting aad good expression in thb picture, and aa abtfnro of niggle and farcing upon the attention of unimportant matters, which deserve full recognition. It b a pity that in the prisoners expression and character should have been pushed close upon, if not into, caricature. Mr. Calderoni second picture, " La Demaade da Manage" (72), b quite free from these defects aad has ail - these merits. It repre - aents aa old French btdtau (oeuZ&nrt and dfciri) crutinizingly reading the proposal of marriage which a handsome lad has addressedto hb pretty enter, who plays with her cross modestly while her father ponders the settlements, chin in hand. Simple as the subject is, thb picture b delightful from its completeness and aa absence of exaggeration. (22&) "ALeaf from the Book of Nature" H. G. Whsite. One of those wonderfully elaborate studies of gray rock, with copse wood, fern, and wild flowers, which seem to carry laborious accuracy as far as it can be carried study rather than a pic ture, but, ae tk. nrsvrete. (33L) " Tbe Iternmaker's Courtship'' W. H. Hunt A young Cairene feeling hb bstrothed's face under her goalhalr veil, from hb stall b the bazaar. A amall work of STeat elaboration and brilliant colour, but wanting the grace that fa required to give such a subject pictorial charm. The heads ars far too lsrgs, sad the limUdliproportlonedthrongh - out, Mr. Hunt can anord to be told that be is capable of much better things than thb. f247.V " From Dawn to Sunset" - F. Faed. J - Tk picture of the year far and away the best work the painter has yet produced, and most impressive from ita unrestrained aad truthful pathos, faaacena ha Scotch labourer's cottace. Theeood - mn nta bv the side of the box - bed in which hb mother has just died. Only one wasted old hand of the dead b visible, xoung children are at tjIst on the floor, with an hounrfass and kitten childhood making a toy of time Tbe goodwife aits by the cradle with her Tear - old baby in her lap, and checks with uplifted finger the noisy entrance of a boy and girl who are returning from schooL The range of thb picture includes life from its dawn in the cradle to its sunset in the AmitntA bed. A candle has just gone out in the socket, a bunch of the ripe ears of the year's sieaniiur hang over the fireplace. The face of tbe man bespeaks no violent grief. but the saddened loving sense that the old mother has been taken to her rest, in the ripeness of her years, after she has seen the shooting of the new stock that b to perpetaate her seed. None can fail to read the moral of thu beautiful picture, which b free from all mock refinement and overprettiness, and which should be the start ing point of a new stage in its painters progress. (258.) "LordNhhsdsle's Escape from the Tower." Miss Osborne. Another most creditable piece of lady's work. Lady Nithsdale has just seen her husband, in her woman's clothes, sue out of the terrible gate, and looks back in terror, fearing pursuit. Lord Nithsdale looks more scared than hb wife a distribution qf expression a male painter would have avoided .and a male critic may object to. A touch of exaggeration b the worst fault of the picture. f200.1 " In the Bezestein. Cairo" J. F. Lewis. hb baggy blue breeches bundled outwards for greater comiort, and his slippered leet on eage, in a most characterbtio attitude of that peculiar Eastern enjoyment" Kef ," aar - ntenW raised to the eleventh power. This picture has all Mr. Lewb's marvellous elaboration, and b the most striking of three Eastern subjects rrom ue same etxnnintr hand. (274.) " LaMereGerard,' - J. Whistler. A smsll, dark, dirty head by the same painter whose picture of a lady at the piano attracted so much notice and admiration from painters last year. Small as it b, thb head shows some of the rarest and truest pictorial gifts. (276.) " Padoe Franceses Leighton." Intense inientiment - biit diiameabla in texture and colour. Is the sentiment, intense as it is, true to Dante's world famous description I We should say not. The noet'a embrace b full of tremulous timid ten derness. Thb indicates a hotter, more earthy pmfftn, (306.) "Lord Ranelagh;" H. Wells. Another of the characteristic portraits of the year. Hb Lordshipb seated on an armchest, in hb Volunteer uniform, cigar in head, and looks ss if hewere ready to blow the whole movement to pieces if he is inienerca wiin. (XO. " Gearm Stephenson at Darlington, 1823;" A. Rankley. Excellent in expression and sentiment. The father of the locomotive, top - booted and brawny, b sitting in Mr. Pease's sober Quaker parlour, "'"g the pretty Miss Peases one of the tricks in embroidery which be learnt while working the pitmen's buttonholes by the engine are as noi linffworth. (327.) " Hagar and Ishmael f F. DiHon. A small but beautiful desert landscape, with a solitary palm - tree and a setting sua. One of the most renned pictures, on a small scale, here. r328.) "Slaves Waiting for Sale at Richmond, Virginia :" E. Crowe. Another illustration of the topic of the day. Capital in character ; the negro physiognomy, action, and character enaenuy sxuaiea on the spot. (335.) " The Psrting Cheer ;"H.OTIefl,i The friends and families of emigrants at the very agony oi separation. in uup is juat wrpuig viu, wi t&e craw are cmaterea in tne cnains ior a isci coeer to those they are leaving behind. The agony U of the most aemonstrauvesana too ioua sna nuupu to be as impressive as such suffering might bemade. More .suppression b desiderated by the mind as well ss the eye. (343.) " Miss Alice Prinsepr" Watts. The most renned and forcible piece of portraiture in the Exhibition : darinir. but successfully darinr. in the strong blue of the dress, only balanced by the bright orange of the sleeve - slsahes, and the sober tones of the background, and most exquisite in the youthful dreamy beauty of the face. Wist Room. UM. " Collectmir the Flocks Evenine" W. TirniAll. A Luve and elaborate heathy hill land scape, with a far - reaching distance ; particularly beautiful in the sky. (41L) " The Hero of the Day" J. B. BarwelL The winner of a rifle match leading home the tax - cart, in which are hb proud wife and children, one of whom holds the cup he has won ; truthful and pleasing in expression, and free from all vulgarity or exaggeration. (425.) " Claudio accusing Hero" T. Stone. A careful and well - studied work by thb xerj rising painter. (434440.)" The Seven Ages" G.Smith. Com - mendably careful and well painted, but too smooth and conventional in its treatment of the worn - out subject. (456503.) " Bumham Beeches," snd " Winter in Sherwood' A. Maccallum. Wonderfully elaborated studies of beeches snd oak. It would be difficult to carry study and imitative truth farther. (532.) " A Roman Study" R. Cholmondeley. A refined and beautiful version of the same magnificent Roman model of whom Mr. Leighton made such good use last year. (550.) Lieder ohne Worte F. Leighton. A dreamy and poetical picture of a pretty Greek maiden by a marble fountain caressing her dainty bare foot, while she listens to the trickle of the water into her vase and the song oi the blackbird orer her head. The handling of the work shows too much study of the French painters Hamon and Hubert, but the picture b one that wins more and more upon the eve and the imagination the more it b studied. It b Mr. Leighton's best work this year. We must leave the south and north rooms for the present, with a notice of Sir Edwin's three mag - mhcent crayon studies at ine among the red deer; the centre one, "The Fatal Duel," representing a victorious stag, himself gored to the death, belling his last note of triumph over the rival who lies dead and Ming At hb feet on the trampled frozen snow. Perhaps, all things considered, this must be called, after Mr. Faed's picture, the poem of the year's exhibition. Of the sculpture we must defer all notice till another opportunity. Mr. Cobden b about to return to England to re - ceivs the eonmtnlttioTH cf his eonntrrmtn, and the respect - fid weloomdQtomn whoh WnenxKedln th execution of great national tatfe. ForthecreateitpirtoflMt year ha worked with unwearying seal and uddoitr, without any emolument, aad, we ars aorry to add, to tn detriment of his health, in tarrjinf out the details of the.

There can be no difference of opinion on the pointthat spoMioman who has worked earaeitly aad assidaoaily to carry out a paUie object for the poblio interest should hsvt his exertions re - wvrdedbr a public expression of gratitude. Invariooawsyi Mr. Oobden hat already received this from municipal and other public bodies throughout ths oouutry, and we should hops every person wiU be gratified to learn that there hai been every desire to give a cordial official recognition of ths eminent aad meat dUaterested ervioes he has rendered. If hs still remain pUin Mr. Oobden, it is only because it is his own desire to do so. Lord Fahnerston, on the part of ths Gorenunent, has cg - nified his dears to sdvbs Her Majesty to bestow on her rs - presentatire in carrying out ths proviaiona of the Commercial Treaty with France a baronetcy aad the distiaetiaa of a Prirr Councillor, both of which honoun fcafeuiheliMtL Hi reasons for so doing we have, of course, no right nor tacUsation to iriticia tat it win gratify his admirer, aad it but ittittohim and' to ths Government,' that the fact should be known.

The answer conveyed the Impression that up to that tints thers wss no alarm ie witn respect m iravaacor , nor, hs was glad to say, was there any alarm now. Since then hshadseea la a Madras newspaper of the 16th of March aa authentic statement. from ths Resident to ths t.v, - i rvmmitiM st M - saoomcsnlsd bv a memo - riodum from the Dewaa of Travaaoora, which ahowed prs - cisety the stats of things ia that part ef India. It appeared that there had been no general famiaa or faOura of crops, aad food was to be bad in abundance, though at rather nigner price. Notwithstanding, thers had been severe partial, and rather extensive distress, which had been f oOowed, aa usual by aictaea s but the Kalah. supported by thjDewia, and also by the Resident, had done much to relieve the suffering. The missionaries had also exerted themselves ia a meritorious manner. Kxtensive Government works bad been previously in progress there, sad other had been set on foot with tha view to employ such destitute person as were able to work. The Bafch had also opened a aumber cf places for the distribution of cooked food, and a subscrip. Uoa had been begun, which his Highness had headed with 3,000 rupee, aad to which the Belief Committee at Madras had eoutributed 3,000 rupee. In a letter from Mr.VerBsde, ecrctarrtothsTrevaodrum Poor Fund, it wa stated that " Suflenng had reduced the poor to such a deplorabU state of wretchedness that the great desideratum at present wss a poor - house, where thej could receiveaid in every sens of the word; anddiseaae, the sad concomitant of famine, had made such havoc among the lower - classes that food alone would not relieve tnem. Again, a memoraoaum aj mm jwau. stated that "about 5,000 are fed daily at the additional n..Unm MtiMIilimrnti besides which no less than 2,000 people are fed at that Sircar's permanent Cun jee - bouses ia aad about the Trevandrum fort, aad about 600 at Thovalay, where there is also a Sirear Cunjee - bouse." Tbe local authorities, both European and native, were taking all necessary steps to relieve tne destitution sad disease, aad they were in communication with the Madras Belief Committee. He (Sir - C.

HiMILTOX referred to a letter which had been addressedto him from Delhi, on the. 11th of March, by a native gentleman, to the effect that from Agra to Delhi the famine wa raging fearfully, though in pass ing through Sanger, jVaUetpare. ana wnansi ids writer wss rlsd to find tha copulation aulet add free from the prevailing distress. Sir Robert, speaking from hia reccUacticaofthe famine of 1838, ia the districts where it was most felt, adverted to the difficulty which waa experienced then, as now, ia transporting grain from the dia - trict wnleb produced it to woes in wnica n wss most urgently needed. The Ganges canal had been of great public service, bat the famine districts in the North - Westers Province were o situated geographically that no irrigation could stay a famine In a year oi orourni. lnenoawinaseiin ffn ths desert to the north - westof Delhi across those districts. eorching the ear of grain before they were formed, so that the crops did not ripen, and merely remained aa fodder for saatlaisttsad screed for man. MS wss sorry 10 ocserrs uu, according to the minute of tha Indian Government brought the other day by ths homeward maQ. there was not one line of railway sanctioned or projected from the com pro ducing districts of India to to j4cru.nesxemrrovinces, which had been twice Tinted by famine within the last 25 yean. In 1838 60,000 poor people were fed daily by publis charity; the number of death was enormous, aad some Z, 000 orphan children were left to depend on the publis bounty. The experience of that year went to show that corn could not be conveyed In sufficient quantities to the famine - stricken districts by cattle, there being no water for them to drink, and that it was only by a railway that the exigency could be met. This wa ths second famine which had cost the Government four millions of money, and (till there waa no railway communication between tne oorn nradneinr district and those devastated by famine. Sir cTTjurrrxrxs reminded Sir Robert of the line start ing at Jubbulpoor. R Hamtlto said the JubbulDoor line ran south of the Nerbudda, and did not go nearer any of the districts SUDiect 10 lanune uw ou uuic. Towards the close of the meeting Sir E. Brur adverted. In strong terms of commendation, which elicited the approbation of the whole committee, to the laborious services which had been rendered by the honorary secretaries to the fund, Mr. Den Mr. Low, and Mr. Goodman, aadtoth efficient aiul economical manner in which tha busine connected with it had been conducted. From the 28th of March they had attended daily at the Mansion - house (Sunday excepted) from 10 o'clock In the 'moroinr always till 6, and sometimfs till 10 at night, and. for himself , he could not express in terms sumaenuy wnuw nis sense w obfunlions under which the public lav to them. The Loan MATOK added his testimony to that of Sir Edward Ryan, and particularly referred to the devotion of Mr. Low and Mr. Goodman throughout the business ; sddine. with respect to Mr. Dent, that it wa mainly owinc to the energy with which that gentleman addressed him on the first arrival of the intelligence of the famine, that he waa induced to convene the meeting in the Egyptian - hall of the Mansion - house. The meeting then separated, aad at the close of the pro ceeding it was announced uu ue receipts outing yesterday amounted to about tJOOL, including 300. from BlackburnBlackburn - ; 1121. from Leeds ; 16&. from the diooess of St. David's ; and 150f. f rem Strabane, Ireland. Thi Yokxshtjuj Socixtt. The 60th annirer - aarvof this aodetv. which wa established ia 1812 for the education of orphans, waa held on Thursday at the London Tavern, hia Grace the Duke of Devonshire, K.O., in the chair. After the usual loyal toast and inspection of the boys, who appeared in a Volunteer uniform, the chairman saidhe had now to propose the tout which wa more immediately connected with the object which they were met together to promote ; it waa Prosperity and Perpetuity to the Yorkshire Society." The circumstances under which they were met on this occasion were Invested witn more than ordinary importance, seeing that this was the 50th anniversary of the society, afferent which he trusted all the friends of the society would take advantage of to redouble their exertions in bettering its position and enlarging its sphere of operations. As they had arrived at this important period of the history of the institution, it seemed a natural question to put to themselves whether the course which they had hitherto pursued had been a good and satisfactory one, aad whether its objects had been commensurate witn the expectation of those who had founded this society. Now, after a lapse of many years, he believed if they were met for the first time to consider bow their fond should be devoted, it would not be in their power to make a more judicious appropriation of their funds than they had done. Hi Grace dwelt at length on ths improved state of education throughout tha country during the last 20 years, and rejoiced that in a society like this tne cnuoren 01 inose wno mipn 00 saia to do oi tne middle das received a practical education. Institution of this kind were doubly valuable in respect to requirement of the middle class, becauae comparatively adequate means were provided for the children of richer claaae aad for pauper children. Great a wa the general prosperity of the country, ret there must of course be exception to that TBS WTATHXS. tCETEOSOLOG Xakst M - Aasrssas.. - "I Lstta.. VUl Barwkk M su - M jjliu . ..
