By the statues of Henry VL, which remained nominally in force till within a dozen years ngo, it was enacted that the Provost of Eton should be a Master or Bachelor in Divinity, or a Doctor of the Canon Law and If aster of Arts ; that he should also be a priest, born in England, thirty years old, educated on the Foundation of Eton. He was to be elected by the Fellows, all of whom were to be present at the election, on pain of losing a month's commons. Before proceeding to their choice they were to hear a mass of the Holy Ghost (as Parliaments always did on their assembling), and they were to swear thst they would fulfil their doty without fear or favour of persons. As a matter of fact, from the earliest period the nominee of the Crown was chosen as a matter of coarse. Courtiers soon discovered that the place was worth asking for. It was tenable for life : though a Provost who should be found guilty of wasting or alienating the college revenues, of groat neglect of his duties, or of voluntary homicide, might be removed ; as he might also if afflicted with any disease at once contagious and incurable. In the latter case he might be allowed a pension of 20 a year oat of the college funds, always provided he had no benefice of an annual value ATJUkH inff tftat an m Tfamnr HyaA tha ealurv i of the Provost at 75 a year (25 of which he received as Rector of Eton), twelve yards of Onfh aul at allsinranpA nf 3 Aa fir? fnr o major-domo and two lacqueys ; also a set of ruumb on we wesi ui iuo uuucgo win. xuese were respectable emoluments in days when beef cost a halfpenny the pound ; and the posi tion of the Provost tended constantly to improve. In the reign of Edward VI., for instance, Sir Thomas Smith took to having his meals in bis own rooms instead of in hall with the Fellows. Accordingly a new kitchen and cellar were built for bis exclusive use, and the sum of 100 per annum was voted him for his diet The college allowed him 60 a year for his stable. Strype farther notes that he wore goodly apparel and went like a courtier. He was married : whether he was a layman or bad taken deacon's orders seems doubtful. He never received priest's orders, though he held the deanery of Carlisle ; and bis appointment by the Protector Somerset to the provostsbip (1547) certainly partook of the nature of a job. In 154 he was knighted, made Secretary of State and Ambassador to the Emperor j but retained the provoitship and the deanery, only resigning them in 1554, when Mary good naturedly allowed him 100 a year as compensation and because he behaved discreetly. In 1561 William Day obtained the provost-ship, which he enjoyed for the space of thirty-five years, when be exchanged it for the bishopric of Winchester. It is painful to have to add that, at the time of this good man's departure, a silver ewer valued at 30, being the property of the college, was missed ; and the new Provost lost no time in instituting legal proceedings against his lordship for its recovery, as well as 100 conceived to be due to the college. The Bishop died a few months after, but bis executors refunded the sum claimed in instalments mnranA m... fc It was St. Thomas Savile, described by Hallam as "the moat learned Englishman in profane literature of the reign of Elisabeth," who succeeded Day in the provostsbip ; Cecil informing the Fellows that the Queen was pleased to exempt him from the provisions of the statue which required the Provost to be in priest's orders. It ie fair to say that Savile's know-ledge of theology was sufficient to earn him the appellation of the Lay Bishop. Ten years previously he had been chosen Warden of Merton ; which office be held, together with the provostsbip, to the day of his death, in 1622. Tradition gives both Lady Savile and her lord tempers of their own. " Sir Henry," said the one, " I would I were a book and then you would a little more respect me." "My dear," waa the nngallant reply, "I would thou wort an almanack, for then I could change thee at the end of the year." But this little speech, or a variation of it, has also been at tnbuted to a friend who happened to be present and evidently possessed both tact and taste. In any case it is to be feared Savile waa deficient in courtesy, though one hopes a certain statement of Caasaubon is not to be taken literally 14 bis custom to kick aU men who are generally considered learned, and to treat them as asses on two legs." Savile was succeeded (1621-22) by Thomas Murray, who soon sickened and died. During his last illness Bacon wrote to Secretary Lonway begging his interest for the place. It were a pretty cell," be says, "for my fortune. It was thought, however, that a peer and ex-Chancellor stooped rather low to ask for such a place ; and Lord Keeper WiL hams pointed out that the Provost ought to be not only a scholar but a good manager, which one so much indebted as my Lord St Albans could not be." Yet Sir Honry Wotton, on whom the King'a, or rather Buckingham's, choice ultimately fell, was also heavily in debt, from which fifteen years' tenure of the pro-voatahip (162449) did not free him.

At his death they positively refused to elect Dr. Thomas Browne, a canon of Windsor and chaplain to the Princess of Orange ; he not having been on either of the foundations of Henry VI. They did not actually proceed to choose any one else, but contented themselves with holding no election at all. The Zing gave way, revoked bis letters patent in favour of Browne, and appointed Dr. John Meredith, one of their own body and Warden of AU Souls. It is greatly to Charles's honour that in 1665 he wished to bestow the provostsbip on Robert Boyle (an old Etonian), and the reasons of the pbiloso. pher's refusal are equally to his honour. 3oyle waa not in orders and too zealous a Constitutionalist to accept a royal dispensation relieving him from the statutory obligation. Nor would he enter into orders, conceiving that his theological works would have more weight as coming from a layman. All the time Waller was trying bard to obtain the place, which Charles would at length have given him but that Clarendon refused to affix the great seal to letters dispensing the poet from the obligation of being in orders. Ultimately Dr. Richard Allestree, a clergyman, though a non-Etonian, got the appointment. To him succeeded in 1681 Zachary Cradock, whose eloquence gained him fame even in that renowned age of pulpit eloquence. It is recorded that though he always spoke extempore, he was so far from being vain of the accomplishment as occasionally to put on his spectacles, and spread out on the cushion before him a notebook really containing nothing but blank leaves. Cradock's successors were Henry Godolphin, the Lord Treasurer's brother (1695-1732) ; Henry Bland, a Whig, and even, it was whispered, an Arian, whom Walpole appointed (1732-46) ; Stephen Sleech (1746 65) : Edward Barnard (1765-81) ,- William Hayman Roberts, who, being fat and hailing from a county famous for its cheeses, earned the nickname of Double Gloucester (1781-91); Jonathan Davies, only too agreeable a companion, whom it is to be feared the Prince of Wales Lad reason to address as a jolly fellow (1791-1809) ; Joseph troodall (1809 40). (loodall was described, not altogether in a friendly sense, as the Incarnation of Eton : being perhaps immoderately attached to the old ways. Regularly every morning did his barber bring a freshly powdered wig to the lodge and take away the one which had been worn on the previous day. Archdeacon Hodgson, his successor, was not elected till after a contest between the Fellows and the Crown, which has now lost all interest; the statutes of 1871-72 formally vesting the appointment to the provostsbip in the Sovereign. It may be added that these new statutes require him to be a member of the Church of England, though not to be a clergj -man ; constitute him a member of the governing body ; and fix bis salary at 2,200 per annum, " to cover all allowances." He is to reside at the lodge, shall be kept in tenantable repair, and all rates and taxes on which shall be paid at the expense of the college." Dr. Hodgson died in December, 1852. With Dr. Hawtrey (1853-62) ended the line of Provosts who retained intact the authority committed to them by " the meek usurper." If one may judge from caricatures, Dr. Hawtrey bore not a little resemblance especially in the lower part of his face to the junior member for Northampton. He was succeeded by Dr. Good ford, whose death was reported on Satur day. St. Jama's Gazette. HERD-BOOK FOB ENGLISH GUERNSEYS. A meetimr Was held at tha Tnna nf Cnnrt Hotel, High Holborn, London, on Wednesday, " for the OarDORft nf fcaltino initial atana inu.J. the formation of a society having for its objects the improvement and extension of the Guernsey breed of cattle and the institution of a Herd-book." Mr. W. A. Glynn, president of the Isle of Wight Agricultural Society, pre- oiuuu, sua among inose present were Sir J. F. Lennard, Mr. G. Nevile Wyatt, Mr. T. De Mouilpied, Mr. J. W. Moss, Mr. G. Titus Barbara, Rev. J. G. Nicbol, Mr. A. J. Scott, Hon. A. Baillie Hamilton, Mr. G. Barbara, Mr. A. C. Bishop, Mr. E. Tmelove (at Mr. Thornton's), Mr. A. Stapleton, Mr. T. T. Busk, Mr. H. Tomlin, &c The Chairman in introducing the business said he had for siderable amount of attention on the breeding ul wueroseys, not ior ex&tbition points, but for practical utility, and he bad found them to be, above all others, farmers' animals. Most tborOUCrhlv Could ha rammnunil tk.m t k. dairy farmers of this country, not only in their yiuo Bubo, uut ior crossing, ana tuus improving- the dairy Qualities of their Wd H.vinr, regard to the great depression of agriculture at yieooui, time, ne r, nougat tney ought to do all that lay in their power to encourage farmers to keep the best dairy stock they posaibly COUld. afld Vila OTnananna U-A -J .1 i : this respect the Guernseys could not be ex. vmsu. uo gave ais nearly support to the nroDOsed eatahliahm English Guernsejs, believing that it would greatly increase the attention given by breeders : that it would tnnd tn the imnrnna. ment of the race, and result in its obtaining a better position in the country.

He explaine 1 that the discontinuation of prises by the Royal Society would only have effect in the case of shows held in the north. When the Society's meetings took place in the south doubtless the piouuuuiB mm vruemseys .vouid be renewed. With regard to the financial asnecfc of tha question, they would probably meet a tlttl difficulty on account of the compaiatively email number of d land ; but be considered that could be overcome by adopting a herd-book somewhat after the style of the American and Royal Aarricul- 'u viwiuooy utfu-Booss, wnica were laid on the table, and the preparation of which would not entail great expenditure. He therefore moved, " That, taking into consideration the growing importance and valuable qualities of uernsey cattle, no time shoald be lost in forming a herd book for the breed." Rev. J. G. Nicbol, in seconding the motion, said he thought there could be no question as to the desirability of the object for which they were gathered together. The only point was whether there were a Knffliont n.. . - ? uuuiuei ui gentlemen interested in the breed to make a herd book a success. A strong effort was made a few yeaw ago to get up a herd book, but it did not result satisfactorily, owinc tn fnt that -the breeders were not pnffi-vnti,, numerous. On this occasion he was hopeful, however, 'that the response would be more general He thought that if it were decided tO eel DO A herd hnolr. a Mihmitfu akitnM I appointed to examine the cattle, and decide aa in their oKoSK:!! i T ....

Mr. Barbara and Mr. Wyatt read letters supporting the movement from the following: Captain Vesev, Mr. Gerald Laacelles, Mr. A. Bintoul, Capt Verschoyle, Gen. the Hon. S. J. wTLmoSb!7a,rond' CoL Made8 Mn T. De Mouilpied was then introduced to Hdltmnmfx ' ffj n.J , . . ' urLS.TlJa TfT06 Pwpnwho are most cantinn ( THE STAS ; GUEKffSEY, SATtffiDAf, ! the meeting and stated that he had been appointed by the Royal Guernsey Agricultural Society, of which he is hon. sec., to attend and represent them, thus showing their interest in the movement of English breeders. Mr. De Mouilpied produced forms of entry and rules as observed by the Guernsey Society. He also, on behalf of the Society, expressed bis willingness to render every assistance he could in promoting the undertaking. He said he could not tell them how pleased he was that this opportunity had occurred for properly ventilating a subject that was of such vital importance to all admirers of the Guernsey breed. He had endeared for some timo past, in a few letters to The Live Stock Journal, to express his opinion on the importance of a work such as the proposed herd book. He felt sure that, as America had proved the advisability of forming an American Guernsey herd book, the mother country would not be behindhand in following her very good example, and, sbouid that happen, he thought they might look forward to a time not very far distant when England, America, and Gnernsey would unite together with one accord to preserve and ameliorate! this world renowned breed, which, apart from all fancy merits, supplied the public with a quality of milk and butter unequalled by any. Mr. De Mouilpied then proceeded to read an interesting paper on the Guernsey cow, which, owing to pressure on our space we are obliged to hold over until next week. In conclusion, be said that if transatlantic breeders had already issued four volumes of the American Guernsey Herd book, why should British farmers remain behind, for if the necessity for a herd book was felt there, how much more important must it be to them when it was considered that one head was shipped to America 40 at least landed in England. The Guernsey farmer was now awake to the importance of keeping a correct registry of his herd, and also milk and butter records. The Royal Guernsey Agricultural Society's Herd book was there as a guarantee of the genuineness of this registry, and there was no doubt that should the object of the meeting be carried out, the Guernsey oow would, in the coarse of a few years, be known and appreciated in every hamlet of old England. The motion of the chairman was then carried unanimously. Mr. Nevile Wyatt moved, "That a society or club be formed, on such lines as shall be afterwards determined upon, to superintend the compilation of a herd book, and to promote the interests of the Guernsey breed." This was seconded by Mr. A. J. Scott, and unanimously adopted. Sir J. Lennard moved" Thit a committee be appointed to consider the best manner oi carrying out the foregoing resolutions." In the course of his remarks in support of the motion, Sir J. Lennard alluded to the defective classification of Channel Islands Cattle at the Royal English shows, and to the want of appreciation of the breed generally shown by the national society, contrasting this with the liberal support extended to the breed by the Bath and West of England and Royal Counties Societies. He gave an account of his experience with the breed, and adduced several valuable facts proving its value, both for the production of milk and butter, and the excellence of the carcase when fed. Mr. Moss seconded the motion, which was carried, and the following committee were nominated : Mr. Glyn, Sir J. Leonard, Mr. Wyatt, Rev. Mr. Nichol, Mr, John Thornton, Mr. G. T. Barbara, Mr. Moss, Hon. Mr. Hamilton. It was resolved that the subscription be one guinea for each member. Some conversation took place as to the conditions on which animalB should be entered in the herd book. The Chairman said he did not think the register should be confied to prize stock; what they should aim at was maintaining the purity of the breed, and he should not be disposed to accept the decision c judges as to the qualifications of animals for admission. Whoever had pure bred animals should, he thought, be allowed to enter them in the Herd-book. Another important thing was to be able to record the produce of milk and butter so that if anyone wanted to buy an animal, he would know by reference to the herd-book where it might be found. Mr. Wyatt said he had -suggested in the letter he had addressed to Mr. Barbam that no Guernsey should be enteied in the herd-book, the descent of which could not be traced back-on both sides to imported cattle; if the animal had been imported in calf the produce might be enforced; and after one year no animal would be entered that was not in the Royal Guernsey Herd-book. Mr. De Mouilpied gave a description of the working of the Royal Guernsey Society's Herd-book in terms somewhat similar to those employed by him in a communication published in our columns last week. Votes of thanks were passed to Mr. Glynn, Mr. De Mouilpied, and Mr. Barbara, and the proceedings then terminated, it being understood that the committee will meet on an early day. Live Stock Journal May 9. A PILGRIMAGE TO LUTTERWORTH. Perhaps no Dart of England ia 1, or historically more interesting, than the corner .u """wuutiw or ijeioeater, JNorthamp-ton, Rutland unite. To huating men it is familiar ground ; but how few Englishmen have made a Dilpri macro tn T.ff...,, u visited the field of Naseby ? Rich indeed is iuw ujohiivh .u togouuo vl me uominonwealtb ana ia reinuiisceoces ot the doings of John Wiclif and his "simple prieBts." The bouses in which Charles I. slept the night before or the nieht after the Ttnttia nf xr i doubt incredibly numerous : the oak chair in which Charles sat at supper shows, like toe oak chair in which the paralytic Wiclif was carried out from his last service, unmistakeable signs of eighteenth-century handiwork ; and Cromwell's guns must have been marvellous pieces P cWBl reach Eockiogham Castle from behind the hUl'' at Caldecott. Still there is pleasure to the contemplative pedestrian even in these obvious distortions of fact ; and the critical antiquarian will fiod m:re thao sufficient to repay him in certain grass-covered mounds round the castle, and entries the local achieves as to moneys disbursed to Prince Rupert's trumpeters. The centre of interest for the present, however, is Lutterworth, the quaint little town wherein so much of the latter years of John Wiclif's life was spent. From Lutterworth went forth manifesto against Pope and monks ; here it was that Wiclif translated the New Testament ; from thence the "poor priests," in their russet gowns and barefooted, were dispatched through the country to preach the new faith. What was written at Lutterworth became gospel at Pragno ; aad theace, spreading over Germany, made Luther's task infinitely easier, if it were not right to say possible. Lutterworth ought to represent to Englishmen, even more than Wyeliffe in Yorkshire, what Eisenach does to Germans the peculiar town ot their Reformer. On a bright spring morning I arrived at the quiet little station of Eilworth, and found myself, in default of any other means of conveyance, compelled to trust to my own resources to clear the five and a half miles which separata Eilworth and Lutterworth. The walk, however, was by no means to be regretted, as the country and the day were all that the most fastidious pedestrain could desire. I had Cures op Coushs, Colds, asd Throat Affections by Dr. lococe's Pulmonic Wafers.

Seat anywhere on receipt of Is r 34 stamps by the maker, E. X. TOWLE, Chemist, Sotting - hardly walked a mile" before the distant" tower of Wiclit's parish church came into sight ; and the spire of Misterton. Misterton is a typical English church, with great yew-trees and quaint peaceful churchyard. Standing at its fine old porch aad looking over the valley towards Lutteworth, it was pleasing to fancy how Wiclif himself might have preached from the doorway ; or some earnest Dominican have warned the people of. the dangers of the teaching of the headstrong priest who was anathematizing the Catholic world from the chinch on the neighbouring hill. Following the footpath across the valley, I soon found myself on the banks of the little river Swift. On the opposite side is the field in which the townsfolk say the Reformer's bones were burned, according to the direction of the Church assembled in council at Constance. This undoubtedly is the brook into which his ashes were thrown, and along which they were carried down towards the Severn and the sea. . Tradition says that afterwards the streamlet refused to flow through the left-hand arch of Lutterworth Bridge ; but on this particular morning the water was rippling through it contentedly enough. Perhaps new bridges are forgetful, like new men, of old traditions. Climbing the hill into Lutterworth we found the little town all astir with the usual market business. The cheap-jack was " absolutely going to give away " bis goods ; the crockery iflaa was tapping bis pots aad pans with all his wonted fire ; and the old wives were examining fish with painfully minute criticism before they opened their purses. At the Denbigh Arms the farmers were discussing a heavy midday meal and the prospects of local agriculture ; and having there refreshed the inner man, I proceeded to the goal of my pilgrimage. From the parish clerk there was no difficulty in gathering local f act and local legend. Like all his race, he commenced with personal details. He bad beeo fifty years ia bis office, and remembered three vicars and two church restorations. He was also attendant at Bishop Ryder's library, and distributed monthly the books. (Let it be noted, in passing, that if Wiclif be the first, Bishop Rider is the second hero of Lutterworth.) Added to all this, he was agent for the sale of Bottriii's " Handbook of Lutterworth." Then he led us into the vestry to view the Wiclif relics. In a glass case is a cope evidently dating troui Catholic days, and it may possibly have been worn by Wiclif. " Pilgrims " having been in the habit of carrying off portions of it, the cope has been placed under glass. Above the doorway into the chancel is a portrait of Wiclif, a copy taken some two hundred years ago of an " auiheotic picture " which the then Earl of Denbigh removed from the church to his private residence replacing it by the present copy. It U to be hoped that the British Museum authorities will endeavour to borrow the " authentic portraits " for the purpose of comparison in the forthcoming Wiclif Exhibition. Two of these portraits are in the hands of Roman Catholics namely, the Earl of Denbigh and Sir Richard Turville and a third is at Knowle. Besides these, there are pictures, said to be of more doubtful authenticity, at Oxford and Cambridge. To j udjje from the Lutterworth picture Wiclif personally was by no means the fiery and bitter controversailist which is the character his writings impress upon us : he looks, staff in hand, like an aged, wise, uuimpassioned, counsellor of State. Ushered from the vestry into the body of the church, it became obvious even to my uninitiated eyes that, whatever might be thought of some of the " relics," there could be no doubt as to the antiauitc- nf th nntra nnH nialaa of that building. These at least had echoed to the voice of the great Reformer. Portions of the pulpit were of an early date, and had possibly come down from the fnurtnantli cnntiipv there were tracis of a rood-loft which had evidently existed in Wiclf's days; and the strange old fresco over the chancel arch, re presenting the Day of J udgment, had warned his parishioners to think of the future, and pernaps lernneu too weaker brethren : even, as I humbly Venture to austeeat. the mnHnrn frescoes which have already covered the chancel aad are advancing down the nave will horrify any true lover of art to-day. But the good clerk was full of praise for these new monstrosities, eagerly drawing attention to two physiologically abortive angels which n native artist was rapidly calling into being. Far more grateful to sight was the old fresco with Death seated astride on a tomb, with the souls resurrecting around him, oa the oae hand to joy, aad on the other already breaking into flames : for here the artist had represented the conception that the wicked at the Last Day will spontaneously ignite. The chancel contains little that is noteworthy ; and damp in this case a friend of true art is rapidly obliterating the modern paint, ings. Within the alter-rail is an old oak chair in which Wiclif is said to have been carried from the church when stricken with paralysis duriner mass : behind the alter am turn -nlaim wooden candlesticks which, for no very obvious reason, are enuuea - w wilt's candlesticks." Passing the nave towards th tnw at. the, vnf end, the visitor is struck by the tower archway a very uue on ot worK indeed, were it not disfigured by recent painting. Perhaps, however, the most interesting fourteenth century still preserved is a singular j-rescu over me aoor in me nortu aisle. It represents three figures, one of whom carries a hawk, on bis wrist. All three figures are crowned; they wear pointed shoes and generally the dress of the early fourteenth century. Local tradition says that the central figure is Anne of Bohemia supported by John of Uaunt, Wiclif s patron, on the left pleading with Richard II., her son, for Wiclif. But there can scarcely be a doubt that the figures are of an earlier date, though what royal persons they may represent seems somewhat aouDiiui. rrooaoiy an investigation into the history of the Church might throw some light on the matter. Close to this doorway is a table curiously constructed of oak, with two leaves. The clerk says it came from the rectory, and was the table upon which Wiclif translated the Bible : another time-honoured tradition, and delightful to believe in. Passing down the North aiele, we come to an alabaster monument and a brass upon the floor, both representing the same good folk one John Fielding and his wife Joan who died in the fifteenth century and may possibly have been present during Wiclif's ministration. Just beyond this old tomb is a modern monument to Wiclif, placed there in 1837, and with an inscription in the worst possible taste. Stroliing back td SUworth in the evening, I wondered if it would be possible nowadays for any great movement like Lollardiam to originate m a dull market town miles away from a railway station, and how Wiclifs poor priests managed to set a movement agog which did not cultimate for nearly a century and a half, and round which the party battles of theologians are raging still. WILLIAM THE FOURTH.0 It would be an iojustice to Mr. Fitzgerald to deny that he has produced a very readable book ; .and if he is satisfied with this amount and quality of praise, it is freely his. More cannot fairly be said, and more even the author himself seems hardly to anticipate. With perfect candour we ask only to be recognised as an agreeable compiler, who bas collected from many different sources whatever bears upon his subject, and has now arranged the fruits of his labours to the greatest advantage. Even this comparatively unambitious task might have been performed a little better; for the work-manship is of the rough aod ready kiud, and the result (if one can fancy such a thing) ie like a large bouquet of flowers which lias been , a The 8Qd Tim of Willian the IV. ; locluding a View of Social Life aod Manners ounng dm neign.

However, there are the odours and the colours all the same. Rather leas than one half of the first volume is devoted to an accoant of the Duke of Clarence's naval life ; and then we suddenly find ourselves in the middle of the Roman Cathelic question, with His Royal Highaess's speech iu favour of Emancipation and the Duke of Wellington's duel with Lord Winchilsea in consequence of it. If Mr. Fitagerald had strictly confined himself to the plan which he describes in the Preface, he would have relieved us from the necessity of doing more than criticise his method ; but at one or two points he has unluckily broken loose from these traces, and has deviated into reflections of his own on the character and policy of particular Ministers whioh only show that be understands neither himself nor them. The Duke of Wellington ha has singled oat for special animadversion in a tone of mingled pity and superiority for which be assigns no reason. He can hardly have read the Duke of Wellington's own account of the duel, or he would hardly have charged him with showing " little sense or sagacity " in the affair; and similarly with regard to the Battle of Na-varino, the Reform Bill, aud the Ministry of 1834-35, Mr. Fitzgerald makes remarks upon the Duke's conduct which are destitute oj meaning. He finds fault with him, as others have done, for speaking of the battle as " untoward." But he has no right to do this as if the censure were an accepted truism which has simply to be handed on from one writer to another without note or comment. Navarino was a very untoward event from the Duke'B own point of view, whioh, as it happened, wa8 a rather higher one than that of many of hi,, contemporaries. In all his relations with th r Reform Bill the Duke is described as a poof blinded and panic stricken wretch, the dupe o every uaderling that took the trouble to impose upon him. After this it is unnecessary to tell the ireader what is said of 1835. Kiug William's conduct oa that occasion is denounced as utterly " unconstitutional ; " a remark about as near to the truth as Mr. Chitting 's in "Oliver Twist," who was of opinion that the way they had of fumigating clothes in Newgate was " infernal unconstitutional ; " for they burned holes in them, and you had no remedy against the county. These words " constitutional " and unconstitutional" 'are bandied about at the present day with so little regard to their real meaning that it becomes necessary to eater one's protest, even in the review of a work intended only for light reading. Lord Lynd-hurst is another public man whom Mr. ifitzge-raid takes in hand ; being apparently of opinion that he has got the better of Sir Theodore Martin in several important particulars. We can only add that such is not our own impression ; and that in measuring swords with Sir Theodore he has miscalculated his own powers as much as he has done in his confident censure the Duke of Wellington. Of course Mr. Fitzgerald bas a perfect rigbt to his opinions. What we object to is the ipse dixi style in which they are delivered : a style he has not earned the privilege of using. Having, however, once carried us through what be call the " secret history" of the Reform Bill, Mr. Fitzgerald becomes much more amusing and interesting. His account ot Holland House, supplied by Mr. Hay ward and Lord Macaulay, of Cordon Castle by Mr. N. P. Willis, of the French emigres in London after 1830, of the principal dandies and fine ladies who figured about the same period, proves that on ground suited to him Mr Fitzgerald can compile to good purpose. We can strongly recommend a large portion of the second volume as a collection of anecdotes well selected, appropriately introduced, and neatly told ; and we are only sorry when we find ourselves back again on tho dusty high road.of politics without any fresh views having been open to enliven the prospects since we last travelled it. We believe it is perfectly true that William IV. died " universally lamented." With those who knew little of him, bis supposed affability, frankness, and indifference to foim and ceremony went a long way. That he showed himself familiarly to his subjects, was faithful to his own friends, and lived with his own wife, gratified ithe large class who combine loyalty with respectability ; while the mere fact that he had been King during such a crisis as was created by parliamentary reform, and had brought the country safely through it. save him a claim on the respect of politicians who Knew tuat, though a sovereign who was a born statesman migu have done better, tho uiaioritv of those who were not would probably have done worse. Mr. Fitzgerald has left us a very interesting account of the King's last hours, ana oi tne puoiic reeling evinced at bis decease: and ia taking leave of our author at this ooint we acknowledge once again the pleasure we have derived from reading certain portions of nis dook, ana to assure mm tuat, it we have anywhere seemed to speak to harshly, it has been as a protest agaiast the practice of larding social BKeicnes wiiu armtrary political criticism, rather than from any design to make a special attack upon uimselr. A YEAR OF LIFEBOAT WORK. The Committee of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution have just published their Sixtieth Annual Report. After thankfully acknowledinz the valuable and important monetary assistance tney nave receivea auring tbe past year, without, which it would have been impossible to carrv on and sustain the great work entrusted to them, they remark that in no previous year, perhaps, iias tne necessity ior me existence Ot such society Deen more plainly demonstrated. The revolving seasons have brought with them to our rock-bouad shores the same dangerous winds and terrible gales as heretofore, imperilling the safety oi luousauus oi vessels ana tneir living freights. It is therefore a matter for deep gratitude to aimiguty uoa mat tne strenuous efforts made by the Institution have been instrumental in miHa-n- ting to a considerable extent the dira evils entailed by the terrible disasters at sea which have been so irequentiy brought into notice in the public press. Since the issue of the last Report, H.R.H. the jxuwcaa ui iuea, ever reaay to co-operate in any good work for the benefit of her fellow creatures, has honoured the Institution by becoming associated with it as Vice-Patroness, thereby strengthening the hands of the Committee ia their arduous undertaking. .The high appreciation shown by the masters and owners of fishing vessels of the benefit firat- afFr.rriBri them by the Committee in 1882, at the suggestion of the fisherman's friend. Mr. Edward Rirkwir M.P., in furnishing them with miiahis at,.vi Barometers at one-third the retail induced the Committee to extend the boon to needy masters and owners of coasters under 100 tons burden, no less than 91 of whom have, in the course of a few months, availed themselves of the opportunity mus afforded them. The total number oi these valuable instruments supplied to both the uiiiBses meauonea, nas been 1567, and there is every reason to believe that by this means many wrecks have been averted, and the loss of life which annually takes place o our coasts among the crews of small vessels, lessened. During 1883 new Lifeboat stations were established at Llanaelhaiarn, Mablethorpe, Port Erin and Aranmore Island. New Lifeboats were also despatched to the coast to replace old ones at Caister, Cardigan, Margate, Padstow, Swansea VVinchelsea, and Withernsea. Ia addition to this 12 new stations are in the course of formation, and 9 new boats will shortly be provided for places in need of them. A suitable boat-house has been erected in each case where a new station bas been established, and transporting-carriagea have been furnished for several boats. It is with the deepest regret that the Committee record the s&d loss at Clacton, while on service of two of their gallant Lifeboatmen since the publication of the last Annual Report. Thev at once contributed 450 towards the fund raised in the locality for the widows and orphans According to the most recent published statistics shipwrecks have of late considerably mcrSSlS number around the British coast, necessariS resulting m a corresponding increase in the It therefore more 2S wui. ou tue puDnc to ao alt that can hp done to multiply andustain the means, which wwf-baS P1 at ito Posal to lessen the evUs SI? Zd ,8em catmot averted, and it is 2nX f to 611,1 that m the Pt year so much has been done in this direction by the brave and intrepid crewsof our Lifeboats. W The number of Liieboats now under the management of the Institution is lwo hundred and seventy-four, and their services during each month of the past year were as follows : January, 33 launches, 70 lives and 3 vessels saved ; February, 39 launches, 53 lives and 5 vessels ; March, 41 launches, 105 lives and 1 vessel ; April, 9 launches, 28 lives and 1 vessel ; May, June, and J uly, 15 launches, 47 lives and 2 vessels ; August, 11 launches, and 23 lives ; September, 51 launches, 127 lives and 4 vessels ; October, 22 launches, 106 lives and 4 vessels ; November, 22 launches, 41 lives and 5 vessels; December, 40 launches, 125 lives and 5 vessels. Total number of Lifeboat launches during the year, 283 ; lives saved, 725, and vessels saved, 30. In addition to these services, 230 lives were saved from shipwreck by shore-boats and other means, which had received rewards from the Institution, making the total of 955 lives rescued last year. The number of lives saved during the sixty-nine years from the establishment of the Institution, to the end of the year 1383, either by its Lifeboats or by special exertions for which it has granted rewards, is 30,563. This splendid list of services is the best and strongest argument which can be adduced in support of the maintenance and extension of the operations of the Royal National Lifebeat Institution. In 1883, 14 Silver Medals and Clasps, 25 Votes of Thanks on Vellum, and 5,397 were granted by the Committee, including grants to widows and orphans of Lifeboatmen killed on duty, for saving lives. Altogether from its foundation the Institution has voted 97 Gold Medals, 964 Silver Medals, and 77,984 in cash for saving life from shipwrecks on our coasts. During the year 1883 the receipts of the Institution, in donations, subscriptions, and dividends, amounted to 40,250 while the expenditure was 45,817. As usual the items of receipt and expenditure are fully detailed In the financial statement, which has been audited by Mr. Lovelock, public accountant. We will only add that contributions are thankfully received for the Lifeboat Institution by the Secretary, Charles Dibdin, Esq.. 14.

Sir Richard Wallace, M.P., baring sold his outtoiK estate, has resigned the riigu stewardship of Ipswich. The Earl of Aylesford arrived in Liverpool from New York on Monday by the Guion steamer Arizona- From Sydney, Hew South Wales, it is reported that the drought has at length broken up in the colony, but there have been heavy losses of stock. It is reported that the Duke of Connaught will proceed to England next cold weather, the Meerut command devolving on Major General Sir George Greaves, whose tenure of office as Adjutant General at army headquarters will expire. Rumours are current in Berlin Court circles which are believed to have some foundation, that the Prince of Bulgaria has asked the hand in marriage of Princess Victoria, daughter of the Crown Prince of Germany. It is stated, however, that the Emperor has withheld his sanction. The Rev. P. W. Farrar, D.D., Archdeacon of Westminster, haa been elected by the Heads of Colleges at Oxford to be Bampton Lecturer for the ensuing year, in succession to Dr. Temple, Bishop of Exeter. The lecturer haa to deliver eight sermons, the endowment now being of the value of 200. The temporary advance for which, owing to the suspension of the Oriental Bank, the Government of Ceylon asked the Indian Government, is 18 lakhs of rupees. It is doubted whether the Indian Government will make the advance. It is reported from New York that the strike at the Fall River Mills is now practicully ended, the settlement being against the men. The North-Western Manufacturing and Car Company at Stillwater, Minnesota, has suspended payment the liabilities being estimated at 1,000,000 dols. It is asserted that their assets are ample to cover the amount. The company was negotiating a loan through Messrs. Grant and Ward at tha time of the failure of that firm. The New York Times states that the examination of the affairs of the Marine National Bank shows that the bank is hopelessly insolvent, but will probably pay 85 per cent, on 4,500,000 dols. of deposits. Captain Claude Buckle, R.N., who has been selected for the command of H.M.S. Invincible, vice Captain Moiyneux, the newly appointed Commodore of the Red Sea Division, has left England for Alexandria, to take over that position. On Monday the sudden death occurred, at Ambleside, of Mr. Smith, chief medical officer at a hospital at Northampton. The Deceased was married at the close of last week, and the honeymoon was to be sent in the Lake District. Whilst Mr. and Mrs. Smith were out walking, the former fell to the ground. Se was attended by three doctors, but died on Monday morning. The Deceased was 40 years of age, and suffered from heart disease. So many complai&ts are constantly being made of robbery from persons while they are being conveyed by railway companies, that the conviction of Robert Henry Hauiblin, at 3ristol, for stealing watches, gold and silver chains, earrings, &c, from the Midland Rail-way.Company, will be generally satisfactory. Hauiblin had taken the precaution to bury some of the stolen property in bis garden, but he was detected, and has been sentenced to nine months' imprisonment. Several steerage passengers on the steamer City of Rome, pauper emigrants from the workhouses iu Kerry, have been detained at New York, in order that they may be sent back to Ireland.
