The Miaoellanoous Selection, yesterday, proved a signal luocewa. This is by no meant surprising when th unusually varied attractions it presented are taken into consideration ; but few could have anticipated that it would excito to much enthusiasm. The demands for repetition on Monday, which the length of the Performance, aunnoainir it to rmmvl from beginnins to end without interruption, made it impcrauve qq ur.uoata to aeciine.whenever be could without giving umbrage to so vast an audience, and which, on tho other hand, were altogether at rarianco with so solemn a ceremonial as the representation of Ilandel'a grand aacred oratorio, were on this occasion in tho majority of instances acceded to. The only exception of importance, lato as it happened in the day, wtSj unfortunately, just one of those the compliance with which would have conferred unanimous gratification ; but the aingcr wa inexorable, and would not como back again to " Sound an alarm,'' and onco more summon his followers to arms. The performances began with selections from Saul, au oratorio composed three yoars earlier than Mtt$ux, and comprising, as those who attend the concerts of the Sacred Harmonic Society are aware, tome of Handel's noblest choral pieces. First there was the introduction to the first part the Epinicton," or song of triumph, for the victory over Goliath and his armies; next the scene where the deeds of Saul and David are coniointlv celebraUd by the Israelites ; next, David's jiraycr tor oaiu ; next, me ciiorai atwstroplio to " Envy j mm tasuy, me tjoaj .Msrcii. ' i jie seiecuon was altrcether suitable and effective containinir a re a sonable admixture of choruses with solo recitatives and air. The chorus, "How excellent is thy name!" the soini - chorus, "Along the monster atheist slnvlc" so full f character J and tho chorus, " Tho youth itispired by Thee, 0 Lonl," ending with a bright and cheerful " Hallelujah' (the Epinicion) formed one piece of music, connected together by the soprano solo, " An infant raised by Thy command," sung yesterday by Mdllo. Parepa. men tne .nntonfi ana scm - chorus, " a ed n'Moiw," " Weleome. welcome, michtv Kinir.' with full - chorus, on tho same theme, "David his ten thousands slew," interspersed with ro - ritatives for Michal and Saul (Md!e. Parepa and Mr. Sautlcy), formed another in a more directly jubilant vein. Then the air, "O Lord, whose mercies," when David rravs for Saul, whom ho is about to console and divert with tho music of the harp (admirably aung by Madame Sainton - Dolby, which in the wonderfully impressive chorus, 44 Envy eldest bom of hell H was deepened into a gloom Doruenng on tne lemwe. lhis ana the incomparable " Dead March " were, stranze to aav. precisely tho parts which in yesterday's selection from Suul created the most marked sensation. The chorus was sung, the march played, in - perfection. Both "were encored and both repeated. Next to Saul came Snmtoti, which may be said to weaa on tne necisot jfrtnoA, having, with the exception of three pieces including the air " Let the bright Seraphim." and the chorus, " Let their celestial concerts,'' not originally forming part of tne wort oeen completed about six weeks later. Both these added pieces were included vesterdar. preceded, however, by the pathetic air of Samson's r.k f inrt.i. tt. :n:.. i 1 1 n con fided td Mr. Santler. whohasrarelr sun? with t more genuine and artistic expression. Great as the ' sensation produced at the rehearsal by MdllevAdelina . Pattfs facile and brilliant execution of 44 Let the , bright Seraphim" (trumpet, Mr. T. Harper) it was j exceeded yesterday. There is nothing left for us to add to our previous description of this performance, one of the most faultless, as well as one of tbe most striking, we can recall ; nor shall wo attempt to de - scnoeitsenect. r.nougn mat a repetition was demanded from all aides ; and that again tho voice , and me trumpet made music together to the intense satisfaction of the entire audience. The ingenious. grand, and truly picturesque chorus, 44 Let their celestial concerts all unite" a splendid afterthought ; ot me inspired composer made a glorious climax . to the bnct and welcome selection from his Samson. j To Samson succeeded two pieces from the pastoral serenafa, entitled Aeit and Ualiiea. words br Gar. a better poet than it was often Handel's good fortune to find "as co - labourer, and performed at Cannons, the seat of tho Duke of "Chandoa for whom it had been expressly written in 1721, about 20 years earlier than ifeuioA. These pieces were the respective love sougs of Acis and Polvnheme. tho 44 atar - sti - nclr " ahpnbenl anil the formidable giant, co - aspirants for the favours of the beautiful Galatea (who, by the way, might have been a: jawed to complete tne picture, witn " Hush, ye pretty warbling choir"). Moxirt himself never surpassed 44 Love in her eyes sits playing ;' while, with 44 Ruddier than the cherrv." nothing wo know of can be compared, seeing that no other composer has set to music the burning passion of a Cyclops able to annihilate his rivals by throwing rocks at them. How Mr. Sims Reeves and Mr. Santley are accustomed to give these very oppositely - conceived love songs it is unnecessary to remind our musical readers. Tho first, which breathes the very breath ' of tender melody, afford! tho usual tranquil pleasure, me iui, au uerccucss ana impetuosity, raised the usual enthusiasm and was unanimously called fof acain. L The epithalamium for Solomon and the Queen of feheba, " Jlay no rash intruder the '4 Nightingale Chorus." aa it has been named, on account of a tculiarly characteristic feature in the orchestral accompaniments one of the most popular things in uimon, wuicn came next in oraer, was so well I sung, - and the pununmo, at the passage I ' Ye zi - phvr. soft breathing their slumber prolong. I " While bifhtincslet lull them to sleep with their son?" that it was asked for again, and another repeti - I tion was that added to tho already sufficiently long catalogue 1 he oratorio, bUomon, written tn 1748, seren rears later than the ilttnah and Samson. shows, nevertheless, no diminution whatever in the vigour of the composer's powers or the freshness of his melodious invention. The next piece the Coronation Anthem, 44 Zadok the Priest," one of four composed for the Coronation of George II. and Queen Caroline in Westminster Abbey took us back again more than 20 years (1727). Few composers canbettcr stand this arbitrary mixing up of epochs than Handel ; and. aa every one had anticipated, 44 Zadok the Priest was not only one of the grandest and most impressive, but one of the most completely successful performances of the day. A selection from Juia Maccabccm. the martial oratorio intended to celebrate the victory of Culloden (1 1 4b), comprised more than one popular air.' more than one admired chorus. The chaste ana devotional 44 Pious orgies" was given in a chaste and devotional style by Mdlle. Parepa ; the florid 44 From mighty Kings,' was perfectly executed by Mdlle. Adelina Patti ; and the heroic recitative and air, " Sound an alarm," was splendidly declaimed by Mr. Sims Reeves. This, tha last encore, though vociferous and prolonged, was the only one not accepted. Tha choruses, 44 O Father, whose almighty power,' solemn and grand ; 44 We hear, we hear," the response to 44 Sound an alarm ; " and 44 We never, never will bow down,'' which in power, majesty, and elaborato contrivance even Handel has rarely surpassed, were one and all nobly given by tha vast company of players and singers, whose) exertions were directed by Mr. Costa with even mora than bis accustomed vigour, decLrum, and skill ; the richly varied and uniformly interesting selection being triumphantly brought to a close by an execution of the familiar though never hackneyed, 44 Seo the conquering hero comes' semi - chorus, solo trio, fMesdames Adelina Patti, Parepa, and Sainton! and full chorus which was of apiece with .all that had gone before. As on Monday, the concert proceeded from the first chorus to the end without an ntrval of rcDOse which, together with other reason, caused many to doubt the expediency of altering the hour for commencement from 1 o'clock till 3. Tbe new arrangement may suit the Crystal Palace authorities better, but it is questionable whether it meets tho public convenience, generally quite as well. To - morrow. Itratl in Egypt, always the most at tractive performance of the throe, will again bring the Handel Festival to a conclusion. other work is the (frantic chorus assembled together from all parts attbese extraordinary celebrations heard to such striking and continued advantage as in this colossal work. """M. havinc kissed kaW The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council sat yesterday. Proswt - Tbe Lord Jsate&UBrM(,'Bir IRELAND. walking - stick, and with it he commenced a furious u m attack upon Jfr. DeJacherois, beating him about (ntOM oc. owx ooKiurowDKirr.) the head and face in a shocking manner. The blood , . . . pHBUN, Jcxi 23. flowed copiously from the injured gentleman, who A banquet wu riven last nisht to Mr. Oaran .r, f.n ..v..: .Ja i .tl - : Duffy, in the ancient Concert - rooms. It wu in - ' an.n.U n,;. ... tv,. - n,v . ' tended to be merely a personal compliment to that , ment. The servants in the house were not aware gentleman by hia friends on his return to his native land, but many ot the hon. gentleman's friends seemed to apprehend, that it would be a Young Ireland demonstration, and accordingly there were very few present of the citizens of Dublin whom one is accustomed to meet on such public occasions, and it was observable that not one of the Dublin priests was in the com - any a fact which wu ascribed to an interdict from r. Cullcn. with whom Mr. Duffy is not a favourite. There were, however, many priests present from ouier dkocesscs, and they were not me Ieut enthu siastic of the numerous assemblr. The chair wu occupied by Alderman Dillon, and among those on cither side of him were three members of Parlia mentMr. Maauire. Dr. Brady, and Mr. Butt. Letters of apology were read from Archbishop M'Uale and several other prelates and diznitaries who hail lwen invited to the banquet. Some parties had objected to have 44 The Queen" in the list of toasts, but Mr. Duffy declined to accept tho invitation unless it wu given. It wu proposed by the chairman, but at least half the company including most oi mo pneau, rciusea to nonour it, ana remained on their seats, while not a few had the bad tute to hiss. The next toast was 44 Our Native Land, which wu responded to by Mr. George Henry Moore, formerly M.P. for Mayo. His speech wu one of the most extraordinary ever delivered on such an occasion. Ho scornfully ridiculed the National Association and tho Pre lates who founded it, although one of its secre taries wu the chairman whom he wu addressing, and another of 'its leading members, Al - lennan M Swincy. wu sittmz at tho table. Al derman Dillon, who wu cridently most pained at this unwarrantable attack, mildly protested, but Mr. Moore wu sustained by tho majority with boisterous enthusiasm, and they seemed to enjoy greatly the hits at Dr. Cullen and others who were alleged to have betrayed the national cause. Mr. Moore, in the course, of his speech, condemned thoso who represented tho Irish as a people exhausted after a long course of resistance to a superior Power ; whereas the fact wu that during the last century no struggle worthy of me name to pro cure redress for their wrongs had taken place. Whatever redress they had obtained wu due to tho wisdom of their masters, and he wu led to believe that if the independence of Ireland could not be secured by tho moral force of peaceful agitation, there wu still a population remaining with valour, patriotism, and misery enough to warrant an appeal to the ultima ratio ot nations. The lut hope of tho country wu tho formation of an honest, independent party in the Legislature who would insist on redress. He censured the Roman Catholic hierarchy and clergy for having mislod or deserted the people, and said that in consequence of their defection tho cause of Ireland wu imperilled though not lost. Ho described the present efforts of the National Association u an attempt to galvanize a corpse, and to raise the ghost of 44 independent opposition," and drew a dark picture of the country.staA ting that the long war between property and labour wu ending in the landlords becoming absentees and the labourers exiles. This wu not the result of foreign misgovernment ; it wu because there were so many interruptions and cries of 44 Question," defended the Roman Catholic Bishops from the attack made on them by the lut speaker, and concluded by proposing "The Roman Catholic Hierarchy and Clergy of Ireland." Mr. Moore challenged contradiction to any of his statements. The Rev. Robert Mullan, 1 .1 .. of Castlepollard, in respondine to the tout. also defended tne priesthood from tho charges made by Mr. Moore, and said they were always u a body true to the people. He also spoke in very strong terms against the Whigs amid considerable interruptions. Tho Chairman then proposed the tout of the evening, the health of their guest, which was enthusiastically received.' Mr. Duffy, who wu received with cries of 44 the ureen above the red." ' '43 for ever, and waving of handkerchiefs, re sponded in a verys - effective speech, which he com menced thus : " I am reioiced to stand ones more on an Irisli platform. surrounded by old friends'and comrsdes, and in face of an Irish audience. In the ten rears since we parted it has been source of secret pleasure to me to reflect that whatever all suecear I personally at tain M went to strengthen our common cam It wept, I fancied, towards proving thai wo were not visionary or impracticable in our aims : but that they were such as might have been worked to a successful imue if we only had as fair a field for the experiment in Ireland as tiers exists in Australia. (Che - rs.) Al( that we asked for the Irish farmer to poasess the fruits of his own industry in peace hss been more than attained la Australia. All that we asked for the Irish nation to rale and possess their own country without external interference - Las been completely sttained in Australia ; and whenever I saw any of those successes won, whether I was a mere spectator or. an actor in the struggle, there rasa to my mind tho exclsmstion of Patrick Sarsfield at Landen, ' Would to God that this were for Ireland.' " He contrasted the stalo of England with tho state of Ireland, and, referring to the latter, uked : "Why is it endured! Is there sny law of nature by which the people of Ireland, of all people on the face of the earth, sre alone to be exterminatod out of theirown country f (Cheers.) If there is no such law, in the came of the benign Ruler of the universe, why should we endure it f I may be told that it is endured because remedv Is hopeless, because all efforts to smend oir condition bare been in vain. I deny that all remedy is hopeless. I deny that atl efforts bsvs been made in vain ; and I affirm that tbe Irish people are in their present disastrous condition mainly because they have never persisted in sny adequate effort to be relieved of it. Oppressed countries do not obtain relief by simply wishing; for it : they must work for it : some by maintaining saniruinary wars, some by arousinj ana directing publio opinion, soma by long, slow, persistent, active or pawive resistance to misKorernment, but all by sacrifices and exertions. So Ireland won emancipation in a contest never relaxed for 40 years. Look at what is being don in other countries of Europe at this moment I la Hungary, after her overthrow In 1843, the idea of armed resistance to Austria seems to hare been abandoned as hopeless, but the irrepressible desire of tbe people to - possess the, free Institutions which their fathers enjoyed, led them to use every mesns that remained to them, and year after year, without flagging, they have renewed their demands ; and now it is said their wishes will be complied with and the free Constitution of ITaogary revived. In Prussia the whole power of the State is wielded by a despotio King to overcome tbe popular branch of the Legislature ; but the people of Prussia are not to be cowed or disheartened, and after three dissolutions they bare three times re - elected their faithful representatives. In France, under the hoof of a despotism which might well kill hope, wherever the smallest opening presents itself, a local election, a Parliamentary opposition of a dosen or a score against hundreds, an election in the Ioititute, they seize lbs lopportnnity to reassert their opinions. This is the road to success. Historv has broadly marked upon it the truth that persistence like this in a just causa is crowned with victory." Tho chairman proposed their .representatives in Parliament, who were present. Mr. Butt, M.P., responded, and, in doing so, spoko in laudatory terms of the services of the Roman Catholio hierarchy and clergy of Ireland among their people. Religious differences were said to bo the cause of Irish misery ; but it was a fact that the most prosperous part of Ireland wu that in which the strongest differences wero manifested the counties of Down and Antrim. lie attributed that prosperity to tho existence of tenant - right, and said it had been stated in Parliament that if any man attempted to interfere with tenant - right there the army of Ireland would not keep the peace of Ulster. He avowed himself in favour of any measure that would induce the people of Ireland to lire at home, even a law against evictions. Mr.Maguire, M.P., also responded, stating that, while he would on all occasions uk for a full measure of justico for Ireland, ho would refuse nothing that he could get though ever so small. Dr. Brady. M.P., responded briefly. Mr. Duffy then proposed the health of the chairman, who spoke in reply. 44 The National Press of Ireland" was then given, and Mr. A. M. Sullivan, of the Nation, having replied, the proceedings terminated u half - past 12 o'clock. The Belfast Newt - Letter reports an extraordinary ou trigs perpetrated by a gentleman on his brother - in - law. on account of the Uoged ill - treatment of his wife. Yesterday Captain Tennent, of Rush - park, near this town, wu arrested under a warrant charged with having assaulted Captain Delacherois, J.P., hia brother - in - law, at Donagnadee, on thajp receding day (Sunday). It is stated that Captain Tennent drove from his father's residence at Rush - park to that of his brother - in - law, Captain Harrison, J.P., at Holy wood - house, whence he afterwards drays to Ballywilliam - cottage, and. leaving Captain Harrison with the car upon the road, he walked up to the cottage and inquired for Captain Delacherois. fle wu invited to enter, and, having teen the gentleman whom he wu seeking, he told him that he wished to speak to him. Both gentlemen retired to a rjarlour. Captain Tensest carried with tha of the attack on their muter till it wu over. Captain Tennent then left the house, Captain Harrison, and drove towards Belfast. Mr. Delacherois being in a very dangerous condition, the magistrates remanded Captain! Tennent for a week, and, bail being refused, he was conveyed in the custody of the police to Downpatrick Gaol by the evening train from Donaghadee.

I think it da. airabte that I should onoa for all define my position,' as that seems to be a subject of soma interest to a portion of tna puDiio. ao ion; as a tsouinern uonlaueracy existed l was a Confederate Secessionist, or what soma persons chose to term a rebel. From tha moment of General Johnston's surrender to General Sherman, at Greensborouih. I perceived that the csuse of tha Confederacy wu utterly lost. There wu no longer a Confederal Government it had disappeared from human eyes; sod - inasmuch aa a country cannot be without a uovernment, ana tha only Government, then tn fact subsisting being tha Federal Government of the United States, I owed to it, from that instant, full obedience which obedience I at onoa yielded in good faith, as I think my fellow citizens at the South very generally did at tha ssma time and for tha sama reason. I am, therefore, no longer a Secessionist nor a rebel, but a Uniouist and a lawful citixen. By appeal to arms, ia assertion of tha right to secede, tha Southern States accepted beforehand the arbi trament of that sovereign tribunal. Tha decision hu gone against them no matter by what means, or by virtue of what orerwhelming odds against them it is. And I believe that all Southern men of high and honourable character do frankly accept tha new position thst war hu made for them, and acknowledge tha duty of applying themselves to tha task of reconstructing and re - establishing their soeietv upon the basis of tha Union and tha Constitution of tha United States. This thev will sssuredlr do. if thev are permitted to do it in peace ; it tha successful Government do not trample them into tha earth, or torture them by prosecu tions lor tna crime o caving asserted a right long known to nara been claimed ny moat southern politicians, and ad. mitted br man v at the North also. " The institution of slavery is virtually abolished on this continent. The irrepressible conflict between free labour and slave labour hu come, and slave labour hu gone down. To this also the Southern people submit. On this point also tney accept in decision oi tna war ; ana u they do so with reluctance and regret, it is but just to them to say that ia most cases their sorrow is more for the fata which threatens that unhappy race they have protected so long than for tha loss of the money value of their slaves, which money value, indeed, wu less than nothing, inumucn u thev could at all times have had labour ou cheaper terms. Soma newspapers taunt ma with inconsistency, in that I stood up for liberty in, my native country, and then came and advocated slsvery here. I cannot perceira tha inconsistency. Tha dibertv which I sought for Ireland wss national inds pendenoe only ; and that only wu what I sought for tha South. I wished that Ireland should have tha power to regulate her institutions in her own way, and I wished tha Southern States to hare the sama power. I wished to repeal an enforced ' Union' of Ireland with England, and I wished to resist tha enforcement of a Union between Virginia and New York. Where ia tha inoon sistency? Others persistently charge ma with having written everything objectionable to them which they can raka up out of tha columns of tha Hic'unond Examiner and tha Richmond Enqvirtr for some years put. I wu never at anv time tha editor of either of these journals. I refused to be responsible for all that appeared in them, never read their ' personals,' and never used that medium to give aid and comfort to tha enemy, or either of tha enemies. Further. I never, br writing or speech, approved anv maltreatment or starvstion of Federal prisoners st tha South, nor was I aware there ever wu any maltreatment or starvation. Tha orders, u I knew, were to give these prisoners the una u tbe Uoufederata soldiers received, and I understood that those orders were carried out. To be sure. Confederate rations were sometimes mesne enough. but I must be excused if I decline to believe all the dreadful stories told about - this matter, or, indeed, about anything else, by witnesses before tha military gentlemen st Washington. " What mora must I deny ? I never recommended the routing of my fellow - creatures with vitriol and camphine, nor with either of them. What mora ? I never devoured my enemies, whether rout or boiled, with vitriol uuce or with dragon's blood. And if sny one affirms thst I flogged to death my negro wenches in Alabama with a curiously twisted cowhide, or that I hired Booth, or purchased the bowie knife for Payne, I would modestly uk him to prove the fact, but not before tha military gentlemen at Washington. I bar that. So much for tha 'put. As for the present and future, I have thought proper, without leave uked ot any one, to oner you such assistance as I eau give, in the only daily journal in Xew York which hu steadily upheld tha true democratic principle of State rights ; hu deprecated a war to enforce an unwilling Union ; hu advocated, when that war ceased, a system of real peace and conciliation such u would enable Southern men heartily to co - ope rate in the luk of reconstruction, and, above au, hu opposod seoseleu prosecutions for what is most improperly called treason, and the ill - omened practice of military courts in time of peace. Tha separate independence of the South being proved to be impossible, it hu seemed to me that the best hope of preserving tha liberties of tha whole oountry lies in tha Democratic party, with which the whole South will naturally ally itself as before, and ot which I conceive the Daily iVcici to be tha truest and boldest organ. I say that I uked leave of nobody to coma to this city, and to write in the AVifi. Further, I do not conceive myself to be here, and going at Urge, by virtue of tha 4 amnesty' that some papers hsvs mentioned. Neither have I uked any ' pardon,' and I trust tha President will not press a pardon upon me until I shall hava bean first convicted of something. I should bo obliged, with thanks for his politeness, to decline it. lis is very kind, but I do not nsa the article. " JOIIX UTTCIIEL.'' NAVAL AND MILITARY INTELLIGENCE.

Yesterday morning ao accident, nearly attended with serious consequences, occurred on the above Use ot railway at the northern extremity of tha Birmingham station. A train of empty waggons wu due to leave Adderley - park siding at 10 a.m and to pus through tha New - street passenger station ten minutes later ; it did not, however, pass through until 10 30, and consisted of 20 waggons and one truck loaded with an empty crippled waggon sent for repairs to a station on tha Stour - valley line." Tha loaded waggon appears to hava been either loaded too high or to hare shifted its position ia transit from Rugby, the consequence wu that it came into contact with tha scaffolding erected for tha men who ara employed during the nicht in recasing tha tunnel at tha north end of the station. Tha scaffolding wu knocked down, and the loaded waggon wu cut upon tha up line. A passenger train due at Birmingham at 10 10 a.m. ran into this obstruction, and tha shock seems to hava caused tha engine to leave tha rails, but none of tha carriages ware off tha metals. It is supposad that tha engine wu thrown off by tha scaffolding laying acrou tha rails. Mr. Wyatt, tha station - muter, and the company's inspector of police were Instantly on tha spot Tba doors of the passenger carriages wsra properly secured, and tha train wu drawn out ot tna tunneL It was then ascertained that a dosen or more ot tha passengers had received injuries principally about tha face, but it Is hoped nothing ot a more serious character. Medical aid was promptly summoned ; Mr. Oliver Pemberton, Mr. Blake, and Mr. ChaTassa were toon on tha spot, and tha passengers who needed attention received It at once. Mr. Wyatt speedily arranged for tha continuation of tha traffie u usual over tha Stour Valley line, and tba passengers between Birmingham and Edgbastoa stations were seat by omnibus" until tha Una could be cleared. Tnt Road Mchdeb Ttiu. The time is now approaching for the trial of Constance Kent, now imprisoned In Devises Gaol on tba charge of murdering bar voung half - brother, Francis SaviUe Kant, ia 1800, at Road - Louie, and tha arrangements for tha trial are so complete that there can be bo doubt It win take place at tha next Salisbury Assises. Tha commission for Salisbury opens oa tha 19th of Julr, and we understand that, besides tha trial of Constance Kent then is very little basin eu to bo transacted. This will do doubt bs. got tbroogh by ths rrsnlng of tha 20th, so that tha trial for tha Bond murder win mots probably take place on tha 21st, though it is possible it may commence on tba 20th.

Tba Mavok said that u that wu a Queen's ship, aad a that wu tha anniversary of Her Majesty's eoronatien. aa did not think they could open their pmeeediags batter tkanj by commencing with three cheers for tbe Quean. Tba cheers having been given with enthusiasm, Tha CHAIkMA spoke of tha great advantages w&Iek inch aa institution possess id ia training youths for tha ses service, aad soma of them far that proleuion which we la. this country were accustomed to regard with to much, honour. It wu, perhaps, difficult for any but those whov had had experience ia tha matter to know tha advaa tags of having educated men cu board a ship. It wu quite)' true that a man who had really ns education might lean to understand his profession thoroughly ; but tba absesos e that culture which stored a msa with useful infermationj "which developed tha reasoning faculties, snd enabled a man' to apply to presrnt emergencies tha information which to? only ho himself, but others bad acquired, wu lamentably and painfully felt, especially ia our mercantile mariaa. This had been - tha ease ia dayt gone by. but he was happy that tha advantages of an InstitaUoai like this were gradually putting an end to it Bat,' in addition to this, it wis not perhaps generally known, that tha geBerel education which wu given ea board this ship wu such is would fit a boy in after lift for aar ordinary sphere ha might be eallLein to occupy. He wu glad to sea that tha Institution bad beta recognised 1st high official quarters. They hsd had tha special pleasure and honour of lb visits of tha Lords cf tha Admiralty est these oeeuioas of late, and knowing that they bad bad under their awn aotir practical prraf of tha good work on board this vessel, ha" thought they might fairly come to tba conclusion that a permanent precedent had been utabtished. (Cheers.) Ota mora subject ha woo Id refer to which wu morn than all t subject for eongrstulation.aod that wu the patron age which Her most gracious Mit - stv the Queen had been most pleased to accord to lh em. lie thought they would all ba gratified st tba honour which she had conferred apoa Liverpool tad upon those engaged ia .tha management of (bis institution by promising to give annually two prises to successful candidates. (Cheers) Tha Secretary (Mr. ClarkvAspioa!!)read letters of apology for non - attendance from Admirals Robinson and Kiagcoma, the Chancellor of tho Ei chequer. Mr. Horafall, M.P Mr. Charles Turner, M.P Mr. W. Jacksoa. M.P and other gentlemen. Ha tlrn read highly favourable reports front, Messrs. Norman M'Lrott, F.R.S., asd H.W. Jeans, F.R.A. on their examination of tha pupils. Tbe latter .gentleman stated that he bad given to the boys ba examined in nautical utronomy tnd navigation many of tbe sama questions ukad of candidates for tub - lieutenants, and be had found then able to answer thesa questions readily. (Cheers.) Both, examiners complimented Captain MouU and the other officers) upon tha proficiency of their pupils. The Secretary next read a length v letter from Colonel Sir Charles Fbipps, dated tha 27th inst. addressed to Mr. Be ailey, tha chairman of tha committee of management, stating that ha had received tha letter Informing hlnx that tha Queen's medal had bean awarded by vota to Mr. Oswald Hillkirk, tod that Mr. Henry SandfW had beea selected to receive tha binocular glau tad 154 toward tha expenses af hia outfit u t naval cadet Ha bad bad the) honour to submit these announcements to Her Msjesty tho Queen, tad Her Majesty had commanded him to Inform tho committee of bar sanction to tha selection thus mads. Tho Queen had beard srith great utisfaction that tba manner la, which tbe vote were given by tba pupils had proved that thev were not anworthy of the trust thus reposed la than, by Her Majesty, tad Her Majesty hoped that tha pupila who had bean thus' distinguished might through life rw member tha suecens which bad accompanied their commendable efforts to distinguish themselves, tad that a eon tinned eouru of good conduct might secure to them happi. seu tad distinction ia tha honourable profession which tbsy had chosen. Admiral GRIT then made a few remarks prior to distributing the prizes. Ha reminded tha boys of tba axeellsal advice given to them last year by tha Duka of Somerset. Ha told thou who had gained prizes that they would b worth nothing unless their holders continued to exert themselves hereafter. Those who bad not gained prises ba told not to be disheartened, but still to work manfully, remembering that many would visa to tha highest position who bad begun with every disadvantage ; and, finally, ho reminded them aS that they were English gentleman, tad. whatever position they were placed in, they should Barer lou sight ot that. He would only add to this excellent advice that at tha life of a sailor was one of mora than ordinary temptation, which no human power might be able alone to resist they should remember that they were always nnder tha eye of tha all - teeing God, and that Ha would give them strength to resist. Tha distribution of prizes wu then proceeded with. Her Ms jetty's Gold Medal. Prize pwcCL Oswald Hillkirk. " Her Majesty's wish ia tha establishment of this prise ia to encourage tha boys to acquire tnd maintain tba qualities which will make the finest sailor. These consist of cheerful submission to superiors, self - respect and Independence ot character, kindneu tnd protection to tha weak, retdiaeu to forgive offence, desire to conciliate tha differences of others, and, above, all, fearless devotion to duty tnd unflinching truthfulness.'' Tha mode' o( selecting tha prise pupil eon - ists not only ia the testimony of the commander aad head - masters u to hia possession of the Decenary qualifications, but also hss tbe indorsement of tba boys themselves, tha regulation approved by Her Majestv requiring that tho names ot not leu than three nor mora than nrs boys than bo submitted to lbs other pupils, and tha successful candidate ba chosen entirelyby themselves. , His Grace tha Duka of Somerset's Nomination to a Naval Cadetship, Prise pupil, Henry Sandford.
