The Parnell Commission is, contrary to the usual order of such events, gradually deepening in interest and increasing its hold on public attention. It eclipses the interest takeu in Parliamentary business, and has even held its own against the sensational excitements provided at Whitechapel. But the Parnell Commission is a subject on which at present Press and platform must reserve their opinion, and we, therefore, naturally turn to the event of the week next in public importance to the proceedings of that Commission namely, the somewhat dramatic resignation of Sir Charles Warren. Had that resignation come twenty-four hours later the murder-fiend or murder-maniac who again horrified all England by the appalling crime of Friday morning last, might have gloated over having added the fall of the Chief Commissioner to his other exploits. It happens, iowever, that Sir Charles Warren's resignation was received twelve hours or more before the murder was committed, and though certainly the resignation was not unconnected with the public indignation on the subject of failure of the police to unravel tne previous murders, it is evident from the correspondence read in the House of Commons by Sir. Matthews, on Tuesday, that there has been a feud of long standing between the Chief Commissioner and the Home Secretary and that the actual cause of 5-ir Charles Warren's resigning was a peremptory letter from Mr. Matthews, calling him to account for having dared to write a certain article in defence of the police in Murray's Magazine. SirCHAS. Warren has certainly not been a complete success as Chief Commissioner, though at the same time he has not been too fairly treated by the public. His faults have been exaggerated, and a great deal has been absurdly and unreasonably laid to his charge. His predecessor, Sir E. Henderson, was hounded out of office by an outburst of popular wrath, which was just about as reasonable and just about as unreasonable as that which has been directed against Sir Charles Warren. The public could only be appeased after the West End Riots by a human victim, and Sir Edmund Henderson was thrown to them. Now Sir Charles Warren is hurled down partly for the satisfaction of the indignant populace, maddened by the Whitechapel murders and they rejoice over his fall with a joy which is a little ludicrous. It will not be many years probably, before Sir Charles Warren's successor, whoever he may be, will be likewise offered up as a sacrifice to atone for the crimes of amob oramaniac.or forsomeother misfortune which will have happened to drive the public out of its senses for a time. There is still some obscurity over the past causes of disagreement between Sir Ch as. Warren, Mr. Matthews, and Mr Monro. But as far as the story has come out at present, it does not appear to ua that Sir Chas. Warren was treated with great consideration or courtesy by the Home Secretary, afid that in seizing upon that want of courtesy aa a cause or excuse for resignation, Sir Chas. Warren leaves Scotland Yard with a certain -monnt of dienity, and with more sympathy in liia favour than would have otherwise been the Mr. Matthews has not contrived to ingratiate himself much with the public sinee .his appointment, and his treatment of Sir Chas Wakren is not iiseiy to "y u uu wuwu - i. ks riinr steadily aeainst him.

But be that as it may. j the Show of 18S8 which was otherwise an excellent one, and highiy creditable to the Ilford Committee-was financially a failure. That being so, it will be noticed, not only without surprise, but with considerable satisfaction, that the Society look towards Colchester for the 1889 Show. The biggest, and best, and most profitable Shows of the Society have all been held at Colchester, and the Society may be assured that when they bold their next meeting at Colchester they will find the people of the town ready and glad to receive them, and to receive them with a welcome worthy of the Borough and of the Society. Colchester has four times received the Essex Agricultural Society, namely in 1859, 1869, 187C, and 1883, and on each occasion the event has been signalised by great and increased success. We trust that everv effort will be put forth to make the show of 1889 the most successful ever held in Colchester, in which case it will oe the most successful ever held by the Society. Colchester has for its Mayor, in Mr. E." J. Sanders. an energetic business man, who, it may fee safely asseitec, will leave no stone unturned to secure this result, and we may also be confident 'that Mr. Pax- man, the Deputy-Mayor, who can render valuable practical assistance, will, with the rest of the Colchester Town Council, do all in their power to make the Show honourable to Colchester and the County. The Show is fixed for June 12th and 13th. The question of the site of the Show seems at the present moment to be the first and most important consideration. We sincerely trust that a site within fairly easy reach of the town, and of Colchester Station, maybe secured. There would, perhaps, be no finer site than a portion of the Camp Field, if it were available, but wn believe that there is a question of whether some 2,000 or 3.000 troops may not. just at the time of the Show, be under canvass on the Camp Field. If bo, the Society must look out for some other site, and we should venture to hope that Leaden Park might once again, by the kindness of its owner, be available. Its suitability has been tried before with splendid results, for the Park effers a magnificent site for such a purpose. M. De Fretoinbt made an important statement to the French Chamber on Saturday in explanation of the proposed heavy expenditure on frontier defenees. He held out no hopes that the military estimates would be materially reduced. It was, however, not intended to apply for a milliard francs for extraordinary expenses, as had been stated, but for five hundred millions of francs, equal to about 20,000,000, in addition to the sums already voted. This expenditure, he added, was not to be made with an aggressive object, but for " strictly defensive purposes." A vert satisfactory statement has obtained currency and credit this week to the effect that a proper reconciliation has been effected between the Emperor William and his mother. The Duke of Saxe-Cobcrg Gotha, the Emperor of Acstria, and the King of Italy, are all said to have had a share in the reconciliation, and one pleasant practical result of it, it is declared, is that the Emperor has consented to the marriage of his sister, the Princess Victoria, to Prince Alexandeb of Battenbekg. One curious result, however, of such a marriage, will be, that the Princess Beatrice will become sister-in-law to her niece. A Statistician, with a taste for reducing figures to a simple form, has calculated that the Parnell Commission is costin" precisely three guineas a minute. The Government, it iB said, will not treat the Division on the Second Reading of the Wheel and Van Tax Bill as a question of confidence, and as a considerable number of the urban Conservative members will vote against the Second Reading, its defeat is considered not unlikely. This would impose on the new County Councils the duty of levying rates to supply the deficiency.

To the Editor. Sir, Might I venture the suggestion that a Christmas Dinner be given to our poor children in Colchester, carried out on similar lines to that of Ipswich. We are all well aware ef the fact that great poverty abounds at the time when luxury and joy seem the order of the day, and although several charitable institutions help to make glad the hearts of many, yet there are still among the poorer classes a large number who pass the day in circumstances of poverty, and of these a great many are children. It seems hard that the children should witness the signs of joy and gladness at the festive season, and yet through no fault of their own realise that these pleasures were not for tbem. I can safely predict that financial support and willing helpers will be in abundance if the matter is taken up by some one who can raise an influential Committee. Yours faithfully, Colchester. W. T. RAINBIRD. A PUBLIC CLOCK WANTED AT CLACTON-ONSEA. To the Editor. Sir, A great want at Clacton-on-Sea is a public clock. As a summer visitor there who takes an interest in the place, allow me to suggest that the little three-corner site situated in the centre of the junction of Pallister Road and Pier and North A venae would prove a most suitable spot for such an object. A similar Bite near Willeaden Junction has been utilised for sncn a purpose, a tower, do teet high, surmounted by a small spire. The foundation of "J gj tower is 5 feet square, with buttresses 5 feet nign. This contains a clock with bell. Such a project would be a great boon to Clacton-on-Sea, and allow me to sav that if the matter is taken up I will give a large bell for the clock and be a subscriber to the fund for the tower. The tower need not cost more than 80 if built of concrete and shingle, dashed with white bricks for corners, &c. 1 be amount would, 1 am sure, soon be forthcoming if not altogether from residents it would from the outside public. i ours truly, A VISITOR. THE LIFEBOAT CALAMITY AT GORLESTON. To the Editor. Sib. Another terrible calamity, associated with lifeboat service on the East Coast, occurred here on Saturday evening, involving the loss of four of the crew of the Volunteer Lifeboat Refuge, and the be reavement ot three widows and several children of their bread-winners. Ihere is urgent need of help for the distressed widows and children of the deceased lifeboBtmen ; and the belief is generally expressed that the dire necessities of the case only require to be madeknown to elicit a willing and generous response on the part of those who have pleasant reminiscences of V&rmontb. During the last season the Gorleston lifeboats Refuge and Mark Lane were utilised for nlMsnre trips to the enjoyment of visitors, who ouinrd much interest in the brave fellows compris ing their crews, as aiso in ine uums ana ineir equip-Heln to the distressed families is urgently r.Aarl and those desirous of subscribing to the -lr:;tnra, Relief Fund " are invited to send in thei donations to this office, where they will be received and gratefully acknowledged by the EDITOR, YARMUUiu varans uushl; Independent office, Greg Yarmoutn, JHOV.

Earl Spencer moved the second reading of the Oaths Bill. After a debate, in which the Lord Chan cellor, the Bishop of Carlisle, the Earl of Derby, Earl Granville, and Lord Salisbury joined, the second reading was agreed to. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Monday, Nov. 12. Mr. Matthews and thexPolice Administration. Resignation ok Sir Charles Warren. In the House of Commons, on Monday, the Home Secretary, replying to Mr. Gent-Davis, declined to lay on the table documents which would show the reason for the resignation of Mr. Monro of his office as Assistant Commissioner of Police. In answer to Mr. Conybeabe, the Home Secretary stated that the failure of the Police to discover the parson guilty of tne vvnitecnapel murders was due, not to any new organisation of the Police department, but to the extraordinary cunning with which the perpetrator of the murders carried oat his crimes. He also stated that the Chief Commissioner (Sir Charles Warren) na i, on tne 6tn inst., tendered bis resignation, which naa Deen accepted. In answer to Mr. C. Graham and Mr. Hunter. the Home Secretary explained that the custom of uueriDg rowaruu jor ce aiscovery oi crime nad, alter due inquiry and consideration, been set aside by Sir W. Harcourt when at the Home Office, and the rule he had introduced had been followed by Sir R. Cross and Mr. Childers. In not offering a reward for t.h discovery of the Whitechapel murderer he was merely adhering to the rule established bv his predecessors : and though that rale might be subject to exceptions, there were reasons for not departing from it in the present instance, Buch as the excited state of public opinion and the consequent danger of false charges being preferred against individuals. Neither the Home Office or Scotland Yard, however, would leavp a stone unturned to bring the murderer to justice. The House again went into Committee of mmniv nr. the Civil Service Estimates. The Votes for the Mercantile Marine Fund, the Secret Srv5 fa the Lour Charges, and for Criminal Prosecutiors were agreed t'K In the course of tha discussion on th Vnke f.r the Law Charges, the opinion w; strongly expressed that the Law Officers of the Crown should devote themflvs exclusively to the duties of the office, and Mr. W. H. Smith promised to consider the nnestum. in the permanent interests of the country, before the next estimates were submitted. Tuesday, Nov. 13. Mr. Matthews and Sir Chas. Warren. The Home Secretary read the orresnondencA which had passed betweefi himself ond Sir Charles Warren, in reference to the article in Murray's Magazine, which had led to Sir Charles's resignation. His attention having been called to the rule which forbade officers of the police from contributing articles to the Press relating to their Department, Sir Charles replied that if he had been told, when he was offered the Commisidonership, that such a rule was in force, he would not have accepted the office. He declined to accept such instructions, and he again placed his resignation in the hands of the Government. In answer to Mr. C. Graham, as to the word ''again" in Sir Charles's letter, Mr. Matthews stated that there had been previous differences which led Sir C. Warren to tender his resignation. He declined to say when these differences occurred. In Committee of Supply, a debate took place on a vote to complete the sum on account of the Supreme Court of Judicature. Wednesday, Nov. 14. The House was occupied in discussing questions relating to the Metropolitan Police. Mr. Bradlaugh's amendment, in Committee of Supply, to reduce the police vote by 1,500, the salary of the Chief Commissioner, was negatived by 207 voteB to 91. The closure was applied and tae vote agreed to. Thursday, Nov. 15. The Business of the Session. Mr. W. H. Smith, stating the views of the Government with regard to the business of the House, announced that the Tithes Bill, the Irish Drainage Bills, and the Bill to constitute a Board of Agriculture would be dropped. The Government proposed to introduce a Bill to authorise the expenditure of an additional sum of 5,000,000 to extend the Land Purchase (Ireland) Act. They would also proceed with the Van and Wheel Tax Bill, the Employers' Liability Bill, and the Scotch Universities Bill. Mr. Gladstone attributed to the action of the Government the prolongation of the debate on Supply, and intimated that when the .Land Purchase Bill was before the Hnuee an alternative proposal would be submitted on behalf of the Opposition, probably by himself. THE ESSEX STANDARD." Under this heading, the Effective Advertiser, which is publishing articles on the Provincial Press", gives an illustrated account of the Essex Standard, from its initiation in 1831 to the present time. The article stateB that " among the Essex papers the Essex Standard holds a deservedly high place as a paper which, from its first number, has been carefully and conscientiously compiled week by week. In East Essex, where its influence chiefly lies, it has ever been regarded with great favour, both for the fulness and accuracy of its reports and for the enterprise wmcu its irroprieTors nave evinced. MARRIAGE OF THE REV. W. MA OLE AND MISS FOWKE, AT SALING. At noon on Wednesday, a marriage was celebrated at Great Saling Church, near Braintree, between Mies Mary Magdalene Fowke, eldest daughter of Mr W. Villiers Fowke, of Saling Grove, and the Eev. Wm. Maule, Rector of Eynsbury, Hunts, and Rural Dean. The road from the Grove to the Church was gaily decorated with buuting, &c, tnere was a triumphal arch, i.nd flags were displayed at nearly every house in the village. The bride's dress was of rich ivory corded silk, trimmed with silk embroidery and figured tulle. She had sprays ef orange blossom in her hair, and her veil was fastened with a pearl and diamond brooch, the gift of Capt. J. N. Harrison. The bridesmaids (the bride's two sisters) wore red cloth direetoirt dresBes, trimmed with gold embroidery, velvet hats aud wings to match. The ceremony was performed by the- Rev. T. W. Elrington, Vicar of the parish, assisted by the Vec. Archdeacon of Huntingdon. The bride and bridegroom left for London, en route fer Italy. 1 he presents were numerous and costly, and included an exquibitely-worked silver egg-stand, the gift of the tenants and tradespeople of Saling. UNITED GOSPEL TEMPERANCE MISSION AT COLCHESTEH. Opening ok the Mission. On Monday evening the opening meetin? of a Temperance Mission to be held throughout the week, was held at the Utill Ef&lIL when Air. K. SCOTT, of Dedham, occupied the Chair, being supported on the platform by the speaker of the evening, Mr. Wm. Noble, of Hoxton Hall, London, and several prominent local temperance advocates. Among those present on the platform, were the Revds. E. Spurrier and C. E. Mees, Mr. Asher rnor, Mr. Wm. Bunting, Mr. John Adams, and Air. a. Jrl. Vj-reen and Mr. a. A. CreBswell Hon. Sec.), lbo platform was also occupied by a trained Choir, who during the evening sung songs appropriate to the occasion. Tne meeting was commenced by thesinging of a hymn, after which the Chairman read a portion of Scripture. The Chairman, in the course of a few introductory remarks, observed that there were some professing Christians who stood aloof from the temperance movement, because they had an idea that the advocacy of temperance was in some way derogatory to the uospel, and that the Cxospel COUM sve men from all sin, the sin of intemperance included. He agreed himself heartily with that proposition, but at the same time he said that the Gospel did not save men in sin but from sin, and therefore temperance people said to men and women who drank, that they must give up the drink, or they could not be saved. He went on to refer to the conversion of the brewing concerns into Limited Liability Companies, describing it .n the most consummate stroke of policy on the part of the arch tie tit to manaind which bad been witnessed for a long time. By dangling a 12& per cent, in the eyes of the English people they had lured thousands of their fellow-countrymen into the business of the sale of manufactured or strong drink, but if the proposal had been made to them three years ago that they should embark in such a busi ness, they would nave said, "is thy servant a dog that he should do this thing." Many of them who had so embarked their money would be glad now if they could have it in some business where they only get three per cent for it, if they could only get the blessing of (J-od upon the business. He then went on to give details as to the coffee public-house system in Leicester, where it had been a very great success, and urged that the experiment should be tried ia Colchester. At the same time he suggested that Jlr. Hid ward Marriage and Mr. Wm. Bunting, both of whom were abstainers of over 50 years' standing. and whom he described as the Caleb and Joshua of the temperance movement in Colchester, should Day a visit to Leicester to inquire into the system, and then report what they saw here in Colchester, with a view to starting the sytem here. He denounced Mr Ritchie's proposals to compensate the brewers aud publicans as monstrous, and said it looked like a Conservative bid for the brewer's vote. But in tbis matter one political party was as bad as another. In 1872 bir Wiuiain Harcourt at Oxford made a high bid for the publicans vote, as Mr. Ritchie had done recent ly, and yet this year Sir William Harcourt had presided at a local option meeting and prated of temterance Me urged tnem to nave done with politicians of this type and their party tricks, for it was nothing else. If they were to be delivered from the thraldom of the liq uor tramc tney must sin Ke tne mow cnemselves. ( .Loud applause, j Mr. WK. -NOBCt to a very eloquent address. abounding in humour and force of argument, after expressing tne pleasure ne teit at seeing Buch a large gathering present, re called his last visit to Colchester some eight or nine years ago. Proceediner with his subject, he asked whether there was any man or woman in tne present day who was ready to defend drunkenness. He aid not think there were. When Eeople suggested to him a Mission to the East End of iondoa, to the lapsed masses, he replied by suggesting a Mission to the lapsed classes. He pointed out that there were not sufficient drunkards in Colchester to keep the liquor traffic going without the aid of the moderate drinkers, and the public-houses would soon close if it were not for these moderate drinkers. In other words, if they withdrew the good from the Dad tne Dad would collapse Speaking of the recommendation of iam cultiva tion. by Mr. Gladstone, the speaker said he wished h ha 1 advised the srrocers to sell iam iniitaari .,f n;nA and suirits. All the agitation against intoxicating annks was oecaue it proaacea naa effects, and if were pobsibie for them to prove that only one young lady in Colchester would one day walk the streets and become a by-word and a hissing of the people, that was the greatest argument that could be brought to induce every Christian man and woman to sweep the uureeu tuiog irom ineir cames. The time was come wnen, oy urous mercy and Help, they, the temper-ance reformers, ought to go right into the drawing-rooms of the rich, and not merely into the bouses of snepoor. xney ougnt to go where the wine was piacea upon me tame and say that it was just a much a degradation to be a tippler in the drawing-room as in the public-house. In dealing with the argument aavauceu oy some tnat people ought to indulge in drink moderately, he said that he did not Know wnat moaeratton was, and he must ask them fix their basis. One man might take eight or even u glasses oi ueer, auu not oe intoxicated, whilst another man would take two glasses, and down ne went, ana people styled him a dmnlr ara. in his opinion tne man who took the ten glasses was the drunkard. Me next dealt wit the argument that the grace of God would prevent uruosenness, ana pointeo. out tnat tne grace ot trod would not prevent the drink affeeting the man's mind and his body. He mentioned the case of a Minister m jLondon wno wa1? oo-rastor with the late Dr. Bin-ney. He was a man who filled Weighhouse Chapel with his eloquence, and one day it was whispered to xjr. iinney that ne dramc. At nrst JJr. Binney would not believe it, but he found it to be onlv too true, and he was expelled from the Chapel. After he was expelled, Dr. Parker, of the City Temple in London, took him in hand, bat he could not be reclaimed. He was sent abroad to America, and shortly afterwards he was executed oy the Sheriff for murdering a woman whilst under the influence of drink. There was a maa who, as far as they could tell, was full of the grace of God, and yet it did not save him from the drink. After dealing with other arguments in a very able way, ?Ir. Noble concluded by saying that a lady might go in and out of a draper's shop without lessening her respectability, but if she were seen to come from a grogRhop she would be held to be disreputable, and yet there was no difference except in the article sold. (Applause.) A hearty vote of thanks was, on the invitation of Mr. Green, accorded to the Chairman and Tnioinmr and after a hymn had been sung and prayer offered the meeting dispersed. SECOND MEETING-TUESDAY. On Tuesday the second meatintr of thn Maulm held at the Drill Hall. whn .h Rp S v H-r-i Vicar of Kirby-le-Soben. presided ; and there were also, among othei-s, on the platform, Messrs. ABber Prior, George Lee, J. W. Lee, William Sowman, J. W. Sowman, A. M. White, &c. There was a good attendance, and the Choir, under the conductorship ui iu.r. o. v. iee, acquitted themselves well. The meeting was commenced by the einging of a hymn, and prayer by the Chairman. The Chairman, in opening the meeting, after ex pressing the great pleasure he felt at addressing such a splendid gathering, said he held that next to the preachiug ot the Word of God, and the adminix?-. tion of his Htily Siioraments, the Tern perttnee Work was by far the most important. Some people would ask the question, wiiether the Temperance Work was getting on, and he had no hesitation in saying that it was getting on, tor they had toe graves difficulties to eniounter, but at the same time h felt that it was going on by the grace aud help of God. and with His blessing he felt snre it would continue to go on. (Applause.) They wanted tbeir principles to be known and understood, and be hrinly believed that their principles were spreading mere and more throughout the lane, at the present time. Their piinciples were taking root where every good thing should take root, namely, in the homes of their country. Was there not at this time a distinct temperance party in thiB country 1 Certainly there was and he did not think that anybody could Bay that there wag such a distinct party fifteen or twenty years ago. And was it not the fact that the temperance party was more free from carty spirit than any other party in this country? They could join together-Churchmen and Nonconformists in the good work, and ask Almighty God to second their endeavours to promote this great and good work. (Appiause.) Referring to the Licensing Clauses which had been done away with, the Chairman said the Government had slapped them on the face and left them, but this question must come before the country sooner er later. It wsuld not sleep. And he hoped they would, with God's blessing and help, become a real power in the country, and something must then be done by the Legislature to stop the facilities for the trade in intoxicating liquors in the land. He did not put any faith in Acts of Parliament, because he felt that they could not do much for this cause. The work was too good and too high for much to be done for it by Acts of Parliament. They must rely much more on their own personal and social efforts, and more than ever on their prayers. They were effecting something real, and were sure to get on. He thought they might also rejoice that they had the majority of the member. of the medical profession on their side. He knew ftr a fact that many patients liked their medical men to prescribe the drink for them, and consequently the medical men had great difficulty in declaring themselves on the side of temperance. But thank God there were Fome of them strosg enough and bold enough to declare that strong drink was the curse of the land. (Applause.) It was the enemy of the happy social life which all ought to enjoy and which God intended every one to enjoy. (Applause.) After a few further remarks, the Chairman called upon Mr. Geo. Stanton to address the meeting. Mr. Geo. Stanton, or the Paddington Dustman, who spoke with extreme volubility and with a great deal of good-natured humour, after asking the audience to excuse any grammatical error he might make, as he was an uneducated man, said that total abstinence meant peace, happiness, health, and prosperity, whilst drunkenness meant misery, poverty, and immorality of the deepest dye. If every Englishman would consult his own conscience and ask himself what strong drink was doing for England he could but come to the conclusion that it was the greatest curse of the time, and the sooner they got rid of it the better it would be for the whole of the people. (Applause.) Some people at once said what could be done in the Khape of legislation ? and he said if anything could be done in that way by all means let them do it, but he did not believe in anything of the sort. England's greatness did not depend upon the measures that were passed in the House of Commons, but upon the social life and upon the industry and sobriety of the people. Whatever was done must be done by individual effort ; and they had it in their grasp to shut up the public-houses if they would only use the opportunity. If they could but get the men and women of England to shut their mouths against the drink they would soon shut up the public-houses. Did the people think that if they gave up the little drop which they were in the habit of taking that they would become long faced, white, miserable, and melancholy, because he did not believe in anything of the kind, and even if that were so, he would sooner be a good healthy white than an unnatural strawberry colour. (Laughter.) After jocularly referring to the disappointment which some of his guests felt at his wedding when he found they had no strong drink, upon which they most of them pleaded prior engagements, the speaker went on to refer to the misery occasioned by drink in the homes in London, and said that when drink came in, all domestic happiness and love was driven out. Referring to the argument that was sometimes used, that the doctors advised their patients to take a little spirits, he said in nine cases out of ten the patient asked the doctor whether he might take a little, and the doctor would reply, " Yes, but a vay little, and be careful with it." The patient would then say that the medical man had recommended him to 'take a little. That was not the case at all the doctor had warned him against the bad effects. In the light of the conflicting statements made by different people the drink must be a wonderful agent that could do almost anything. For instance. Dargeman wouia say 11 you saw mm drinking that e must have something to keep out the cold ; th cook would sav, "You would want it if von had tn tand by this big fire all day " ; the nurse said she ook it to keep her awake, because she was ho aWnr- having Ht op three or four nights, and the patient dj.i.iI o vr. thoh . , cka fn.,l i- . 1 .1 , , Thn bargeman took it to keep out the cold, the cook took it to keep out the heat, the nurse took it to keep her awake, and the patient took it to send her to sleep. (Laughter.) There were all these opposite things which people would tell you liquor was good for and could do. If liquor was eood for on if. good for all, and if it was bad and injurious for one was bad for all. If the liquor was such exrllnt stuff as some would try to make them hflliwp why did not tbey show them some eond rmnla The very best results from the use of intoxicating liquors that he had ever Been was a man in rags' and tatters with a black eye and the skin off his nose (Laughter) and slovenly women wno stood against me doorpost talking to Mrs. Wilson next door, so that when her husband came home to his tea there was nothing ready for him, and consequently he went out of the bouse, and if he had twopence in nis pocket he ;would go to the) nearest pumic-nouse and spend it. .Dealing more particularly with this part of the question, tha snAaWpr said it was often the case that a woman through w drunken and slovenly habits drove her husband to the public-house, where he got drunk aud afterwards came home and ill-used her, and in many cases murdered her, whilst under the influence of drink. Some people said that drink was a strengthening medicine but he doubted the truth of that assertion. For instance he saw the effect of this strengthening medicine since he had been in the town. He saw a man whn haA been having some of it, and it was taking two men to hold him up. (Laughter.) The present habit a customs of the people must be changed, and if they wanted to change them, tbey must begin in their own homes.

On Tuesday, in the High Court of Justice, Colonel Tomline, of Orwell Park, obtained a verdict for 300 for money lent to the defendant, Billups, to help him in promoting a navigation scheme. Defendant promoted the scheme for connecting Felixstowe with the Midland and North Western Systems, vtd Cambridge. A SAFFRON WALDEN BREACH OF PROMISE CASE. Tw Pounds Damages. At the Middlesex Sheriffs' Court on Thursday before Mr. Undersheriff Burchell and a jury, the case of Cutter i-. Salmon came on for hearing for the assessment of damages for breach of promise of marriage. The plaintiff was Susan Cutter, a domestic servant at Saffron Walden, and the defendant, Denziel Salmon, Barnett Road, Mile End, a railway signalman. Mr Stewart Smith, in opening the case for the plaintiff said the parties first became acquainted in February 1885, when the plaintiff was in the service of a gentleman at Saffron Walden. After some correspondence had passed between them they became engaged, and continued so up to the end of that year, and, at the expiration of that time the defendant, without assigning any reason, except that he was not in a condition to provide a home, broke off the engagement. The plaintiff heard no more of the defendant until March of the present year, when, at his solicitation, she renewed the acquaintance. Shortly afterwards the defendant wrote : Dear Friend Susan.-I am willing if you are to show my love and affections to you, aud reward and comfort vou for the large wound I have given you, and pain ; but my God as forgiven me for all. I know I have been cruel to vou in a good many ways, but you will forgive me, dear friend Yours truly Christian brother Dan, D. Salmos. They would see that this gentleman was of very strong religious tendencies, and perpetually bringing in the name of his Maker. The young lady was also attached to a chapel, and he thus all the easier gained her affections, and acquired an influence over her. He spoke of giving her a keeper till she got a plain ring and on the 27th April he wrote the plaintiff enclosing an engagement ring, and asking her to send him 3 towards the purchase of some furniture. The plaintiff sent the money, but on the 3rd of May the defendant made a similar request, but reduced the amount to-' and asked the plaintiff to do all she could to ro-vide the household necessaries, apparently having a keen eye to his own interests, for on the 10th May he again asked the plaintiff to send him 2.. 10 to purchase a chest of drawers. She sent him the money and he sent her a ring, asking her, however, at the same time, to send him a present on his wedding day (Laughter.) At the request of the defendant, the plaintiff came to London at the end of June, and was introduced by him to his friends as his future wife. Ultimately it waa arranged that the marriage should take place at the end of December, but this was altered to September, and the plaintiff consequently gae notice to leave service. The correspondence continued, and on the loth August the plaintiff was astonished to receive a letter from the defendant which said : ' Dear Susan and Christian Sister, I feel with regard marry, ing you, Susan, which is a very great responsibility on your part, and also on mine now I have ask you to be my wife which 1 find I was to hasty, bat the Lord will forgive me and I know you will, won't you, Susan, as a Christian sister. I have prove you love me very dearly, an. I have being puttW your love with mine from time to time and find that yours has been a great deal stronger than mine, and I am not worthy to hare you for that reason. He subsequently offered the plaintiff 8 not to brine him before the Court. Mr. Smith asked that. nh. stantial damages be awarded the plaintiff. The plainntf, a naviest-looking vounc woman, vu then examined, and bore out the opening statement of Mr. omicn. ine defendant was also called, and stated that his wages were 23i. per week. He had returned to the plaintiff the money she sent him. He did not marry tne plaintitt because he was unable to keep a house. The Jury, after a few minutes' deliberation, awarded the plaintiff 10 damages. MEAT VEESUS SALT. Science teaches us that salt meat han lees nutritive power than fresh meat. The same principle applies in a higher degree to a number of liquid extracts of meat, or so-called beef-tea, or bouillons -uivu uoiug uu.reu -ngiign public at prices entirely out of proportion to their real nutritive value According to analysis by Dr. Rudolph Sendtner, publ lished by the Royal Analytical Institute of Munich most of these liquid esrracts contain only a very small proportion of real extract of meat, but an enormous quantity of Bait, with the addition of some flavonrino- ingredient like celery, or similar stuff ; and in analyzing nve uinereni sorts, Ur. bendtner obtained the following results : 5 No. 1 being considered as one unit of extract ef meat ., 2 is equal to L62. it 3 2 43. 4 2.8. - 5, the real Liebis ComnanvV avfv-t ( vr being equal to 6.20 And in calcalating, the quantity of salt added to the muerent sjr.s : No. 1 contains 77.83 per cent. 2 36.70 3 52.68 m 4 h 54.69 No?

This proves to a certaintv thai: tha in using these various sorts of liquid extracts of meat, IDoumonsj, pays mamiv tor a very strong solution of common salt, slightly flavoured with some extract of meai, ami eome oiner ingreaient of no nutritive value. reei-.e maue irom iieDig Company's Extract of Meat is, therefore, of far greater nntriiivo ni - stimulant, and infinitely cheaper at present retail priu. i uo wmwr season approaching, th a Roam t. ue a. useiui mux, to consumers ot haaf.f.oo.

With reference to the days on which the Show should be held, Mr. Sanders suggested that Wednesday and Thursday would be best.

Mr. Thompson said the Mayor of Colchester told him that his letter was to be regarded as an invitation, and there was a general w:Bh that the Show should be held in Colchester.
