IT has been decided to perpetuate the memory of the late Bishop of Colchester by some suitable me morial. At an informal meeting of the clergy on Saturday, presided over by the Bishop of St Albans, a committee was appointed to confer with the mem bers of the deceased Bishop family and decide what form the memorial shall take.

The Bishop of Winchester, writing on Winter Plans in his Diocesan Chronicle, aays Slow a the progress sometimes is felt to be. and dis; as is tne tasK yet in iront, or personally visitmz all the parishes in the diocese, before I can quite suitaniy aeuver my prirsary cnarge, 1 mean steadily to persevere in it Sometimes the Question occurs if it might not be better to exhaust all the parishes in a single deanery and get them done with, rather than to pay fewer and leas comprehensive visits to each deanery in turn? Circumstances, however, usually settle this latter method without much power ot choice.

But winter, alas 1 brings dark mornings and short afternoons, and heavy roads, and often a sombre and morose atmosphere with corresponding if disappointing limitations. In November I hope to visit parishes in the deaneries ot Bomsey, Basingstoke, Alton. Alrosford. and Lyndhorst. Iu December, when the month is broken by tbe ordination examination and the Ember days, I hope to visit parishes in the deaneries ot Portsmouth and Landport.

The parishes here most not be rushed, and will take time. Southampton must not be forgotten other and single visita tions shall be worked, in as spare fragments of time occur, bat tney cannot be announced long beforehand. When the year is turned and the Christmas holidays over other announcements will be made. With the inside of a week all spent away from home it will usually be imperative for me te return to the castle for Saturday until Monday, otherwise tbe correspondence of the diocese will become fatally neglected, and important business, always cropping up. A BISHOP ON GAMBLING.

The following is a copy of tbe letter received from the Bishop of Chester by Mr. John Hawke, the hon. secretary of the Anti-Gambling League, in response to an inquiry whether he would join the deputation to tne no me secretary The Palace, Chester, Nov. 12, 1894. Dear Sir, It is, I regret, impossible for me to be in London on Wednesday next, so as to join the deputation to the Home Secretary.

But I cordially sympathise with every judicious effort to redeem our national spoits from the contamination of betting and gambling. I understand tbat the Anti-Gambling League does not contemplate interference with personal liberty. Fools, it recognises, mast be allowed to play the fool, forgetting that property is essentially a trust and also that, as the proverb bluntly tells us, wnat is got over tne aevirs back is generally lost under his Bat tbe League rightly holds that law should make the path of the knave as thorny as possible for getting at and fleecing his dupe. The knave will no doubt pose as the champion of sport and injured liberty. But from the cant of knavery, as from other species of cant, we must clear our minds.

Wishing the League judgment and perseverance in its manly, sportsmanlike, and patriotic cause, I remain, uesir cur, yours laiuuuuy, F. J. CESTB." EARTHQUAKE IN THE NEW HEBRIDES. -rzr? NATIVES TAKE REFUGE ON BOARD H.M.S. DART.

Advices were received at Sydney on Tuesday of a severe csrioqusse sou volcanic eruption at Am-brym, an island in the New Hebrides group. The aisturoanoe occurred on October loth, when several severe shocks were leit tnrougnoat the whole island Immediately afterwards the volcano, which is 2500ft! nign, was ooserved to be in active eruption. The lava destroyed, tne native villages on one side of the island, and a large number of natives sonant rrW on board H.M.S. Dart, which was cruising off the coast.

AN UNRECORDED CHAPTER IN THE INDIAN MUTINY. Mr.

Reginald WUberforee, the eldest son and mograpner ot the riianop, says Truth, has iost iiuuuauou luwigauuni an nrecoraeu Chapter of the Indian Mutiny," which contains the following astounding story, which I am sure most readers will wish to disbelieve Just before we got to Lahore, a native infantry regiment which had been disarmed, broke away and a youngf allow with some fifty Sikbs was sent in pur-TOii a fhi the UP some 125 miles away, and tried to bring them back, but they would not come. He fired upon them, killing a good many of them, until bis men said tney would not fire any more, they had so ww fiuuw auu were a long way from any troops in a disturbed oeuntry. The officer was in a dilemma, he could net 1st the Sepoys escape, his men w2? to march them back to Lahore, setting aside all the difficulties of commissariat, Ac. If the Sepoys got to close quarters they were numerous enough to overpower his men He, however, managed to march them into a building, and when night came on he staffed np all the airholes, so tbat in the morning when the doors were onenoH th out The Black Hole ef Calcutta was repeated in the Punjab.

WRECKS AND FLOODS. LOSS OF LIFE AND GREAT PRIVATIONS.

The Barks and Hants line was flooded on Wednes day night between Hungerford and Bodwyn, and traffic was stopped. The water subsided on Thursday morning, and shortly after the first goods train bad pasead Savernake Station 300 yards of the embankment slipped into the Kennett and Avon Canal, leaving the sleepers and rails without support. Traffic was consequently altogether suspended. The floods are still serious at Christohurch, and houses which have never before been flooded are inundated to the depth of several feet Boats are being used to oonvey people from one part of the town to another. A number of cattle have been lost On Tuesday the rainfall was over 2m.

in twenty hoars. In the river Stour the rise of water has been nearly 15ft, and the water has extended for several acres on each side. Business is com pletely disorganised. The Thames continued to rise on Thursday, and the suburbs of Windsor and Eton in the vicinity of the river were extensively flooded. Some of the houses could only be reached by boats and punts.

Seven bodies have been washed ashore at Worthing, and information in the possession of Superintendent Long, the deputy chief -constable of Wast Sussex, leaves no doubt that all the men belonged to tbe steamer Lad an of London, whioh was lost in a gale off Worthing on Wednesday. Some wreckage has also been washed ashore, in cluding the staamer's lifeboat, in which a man had observed making his way to land. He was. however, drowned, and his body was washed ashore at Lancing. The volume of flood water resulting from Wednesday's deluge is becoming stronger at Oxford as it Hows from the upper reaches.

Late on lhursday night the water poured over the Great Western line, near Hincksey. into the city waterworks lake. causing it to overflow and to flood the houses in the locality to a considerable depth. Ho fewer than loO men were set to work to divert the current of the flood water from the railway line, and it was hoped tnat oy wis means iramc mignt oe reopened nuay. In several streets in the low-lying parts of Oxford people were compelled to use punts to get to and from their houses.

The mail for the west of England could not be sent out on Thursday night from Oxford. The floods sssamed a very serious aspect on Thursday throughout West and Mid Surrey, The river Wey, at Guildford, overflowed, and thousands of acres were under water. A considerable ot land adjoining Shalford Park, where the last Bath and West show was held, was submerged, and the river, usually about 40ft, was in this part quite half -a-mile wide. In the low lying parts of Guild ford whole rows of hoessa were submerged, and people had to enter by the upper windows. Grave fears are entertained at Dover as to the fate of a barquentine, the Elizabeth, of Bideford.

The captain oi the Ustend mail steamer, vuie de Douvres, which arrived at Dover, on Thursday morning, reported that he had picked up the Elisabeth's boat floating bottom upwards off Dover. He subsequently found the figure-head of the vessel. It is surmised that the crew abandoned their vessel and took to their boat daring the storm, only to meet their fate by the capsizing of the boat Several bodies ware observed on Thursday floating off the port but owing to the heavy sea it was impossible to reach them. A logger which arrived at Lowestoft on Thurs day reported having lest one of her crew during the storm on Tuesday, and the Halcyon, another logger, reported having been repeatedly swamped, two of her crew being drowned. The flood reached its highest point at Bath be tween 3 and 4 o'clock on Thursday morning, at which time it was nearly a foot higher than the memorable flood of lez, and was consequently the highest of the century.

The water invaded the electric light works and the gas works, and though it was pumped oat of the former, so that the alec trio light was burning at night, there was sn absolute failure of the gas supply. No performance could take place at the theatre, and all publio fix-tares were postponed. The water only receded a few inches during the day. A meeting convened by the Mayor took place in the afternoon, when arrangements were made to supply the poorer residents with coal when the water had sufficiently abated to enable it to be delivered. Hundreds of poor persons were on Thursday night Bleeping in schools and parochial rooms.

Belief parties were at work all day conveying food to the people imprisoned in the flooded houses. Some of the sufferers had been reduced to the verge of starvation. LOSS OF A BRITISH SHIP AND TWENTY-TWO LIVES. The ship Culmore, of Londonderry, Hamburg for Barry, in ballast, capsized and foundered during a heavy gale on Thursday, about eighty miles off Spurn. Four sailors were rescued and landed at ull by the steam trawler Swift.

Twenty-two persons lost their lives, Including the captain and his wife, who died shortly after getting on board the Swift. The Culmore was a steal ship of 1720 tons gross, built at Port Glasgow in 1890, and owned by Messrs. Thomson, Dickie, and of Glasgow. AN EXTRAORDINARY INCIDENT DURING A STORM. An awkward accident occurred daring the recent tie to en elderly amateur astronomer in ondon.

Part of the roof of his bouse is flat, and from that vantage platform he makes observations through a telescope. Just as he was taking his bearings a miniature hurricane violently swung the telescope round on its pivot, causing the long brass tube to strike the eld gentleman a heavy blow in the smaU of the beck, whioh sent him rolling down the incline of the roof on which the platform was constructed into a neighbour's conservatory, doing considerable damage to bis own clothes, skin, and temper, ceasing some alarm among the occupants of the next house, and upsetting promising array of cinerarias, with whioh 'the owner hoped to gain many prizes. It is understood a lawsuit is pending, and meanwhile the planets are neglected in Barnsbory. ASTONISHING THE NATIYES. The Queen, on Thursday gave an audience at Windsor Castle to the Swazi chiefs who are now visiting this country, consisting of Nrnganga and Llbokwana (Princes of Swaziland), Mhlonitshwa and Mnkonkoni (Special Envoys of the Swazi Nation), Maboon, and Cleopas Kunene, and were accompanied by the Master of Elibank (the Hon Alexander Murray) and Mr.

J.Stewart (the Government interpreter), and travelled from town by the Great Western Railway, reaching Windsor at half-past 2 o'clock. Her Majesty, who was accompanied by Princess Louise (Marchioness of Lome) and Princess Beatrice, and attended by the ladies and gentlemen of the Court, received the Swazi chiefs in the corridor, where a guard of honour of the Royal Horse Guards under the command of Lieutenant Fitzgerald was mounted. The officers and troopers were in fall uniform, and the regimental trumpeter wore his state dress. The martial aspect of the soldiers, in their red-plumed helmets, brightly burnished cuirasses, gold aigulets, and cavalry boots, with swords at the greatly impressed the Sooth African visitors. The ohiefs, who were introduced by the Marquis of Ripon, were highly delighted with the gacioas receptioo accorded them by Her Majesty, and, having delivered the loyal message entrusted to them by the Queen-Regent of Swaziland, took luncheon in the Ministers' Room.

They were afterwards conducted by Mr. Coll man the Palace inspector, through the Royal private apartments, tbe State apartments, and the library, the splendour and magnitude of whioh elicited repeated expressions of admiration and wonder The deputation returned by the quarter to o'clock train to the metropolis. TBE CORN TRADE. Tbe weather continues showery with a high temperature for the time of year, and often bright sunshine and blue skies between the showers. Threshing grain is not to be encouraged in weather of this kind, and the recent large sales of barley at 5s 9d under last November's prices is especially to be regretted.

English wheat during the past week has been in smaller supply than for any like week since 1886. The deliveries are 40 per cent, under the septennial auu witness to tne general disgust which an eighteen-shilling average causes. The fail in sales has now reached a point where it should begin to exercise a marked effect upon that average in met, out of sixty Srst-class markets, forty-three have been 6d dearer oc the week.

For instance the Duke of Athlone has twenty-three the Duke of Hamilton has seventeen the Dukes ef Argyll and Bucoleuoh sixteen each the Marquis of Bute fifteen and the Duke of Abercorn thirteen. The will of Elisabeth Tudor, who died recently in Worcestershire, has been proved by W. Shakespeare, of Birmingham.

A stranger coincidence could scarcely be. Here is a recent anecdote for Church readers. If you please, sir, the new rector is to be inundated next Tuesday wsek, and I have come to ask you whether you will be able to be present" Cer tainly," said the churoh warden," and I hope there will bean overflowing That man, Ardup," said the man in the mackin ah," was as good-hearted a fellow as ever lived, but he was always in debt and hounded by creditors. Poor fellow he deserves a better epitaph than an unfeeling posterity will engrave on his tombstone." Well donned, thou good and faithful servant," suggested the man who had his feet od the table and a deep silence feel npon the grotp. Somebody has picked out rather a bad piece of laad-iubberism in John a' Dreams," in which the owner of the Moonbeam speaks of a member of his party as being downstairs Admiral Field on the last occasion on which the House of Commons went to a Naval Review caught a fellow M.P.

who shall be nameless so tripping, and instantly held him up to joneral ridicule. After that the ridiculed one stayed Cownstairs. A mathematician has computed the movements of a rider's feet while operating a bicycle, and has demonstrated that it requires less exertion to travel fifteen miles on a bicycle than to walk three miles. Little Dick's mamma had fonnd some tiny hole in a skirt whioh she celled moth holes. A few days afterwards little Dick appeared with a very large hole in his kilt Why, Dick," said mamma.

what have you been doing to tear your skirt so Mamma," said Dick, soberly, putting three little fat fingers through the hole and regarding it dubiously, I think this must be a butterfly hole. A peculiarity of the blind is that there is seldom one of them who smokes. Soldiers and Bailors accustomed to smoking, and who have lost their sight in action, continue to smoke for a short while, but soon give up the habit. They say it gives them no pleasure when they cannot see the smoke. Teacher Johnny, can you define for us the difference between caution and cowardice Johnny Yassum.

Teacher Well Johnny And if yon scart and stay home, and the boat does sink, then it's caution." Samuel was before the bar of justice for having purloined divers and sundry pallets from the coop of a prominent citizen. Didn't you know it was wrong to steal those chickens?" asked the judge.

It is high time to ask Mr. Gladstone whether or no he intends to return to public life.

If he does not, we respectfally suggest that, sitting aloof from our mundane controversies, he puts us in no small difficulty by hurling, at brief intervals, a veritable apple of discord into oar -midst" These sentences are not quoted from a wicked Unionist journal, but from that erstwhile Gladstonian sheet the Daily Chronicle. They are apropos of a letter which the ex-Premier has addressed to one of his political supporters on the subject of the School Board controversy. Everybody is talking about the communication, but no one pretends to understand it the only guide to its real drift being the fact that the Progressives generally condemn it A discovery of unusual interest to arohsslogists has been made quite recently in South America a. snort uisbnuuu irom tne city ot Santiago, in Guatemala, a buried city been laid bare by the researches of local savants. This new Herculaneum is witmn reaon oi the volcano of Agua, and it is supposed that a great eruption in pre-historio times blotted it out, as it is buried under a deep bed of lava and cinders, whioh doubtless came from the volcano.

At a depth of from 18 to 25 feet from the surface, the explorers came upon quantities of cooking and domestic utensils in pottery, many of them covered with hne chiselled work and painted in bright colours. Glass vases of delicate make and design, as well as weapons made of silex were also found, all in a perfect state of preservation. Still more interesting was the unearthing of a number of extremely curious stone idols, in close proximity to which were found necklaces of jewels and a pro fusion of pearls and torquoises. It is supposed that the latter were native offerings at the shrines of the idols. According to the opinion of local archaeolo gists the buried city dates from the age of stone This opinion finds confirmation in the circumstance that a number of human skeletons have been found which have an average length of over six feet and a half, a stature whioh authorities on paleontology attribute to cne people of the primitive ages.

The other week Jabea Balfour was extradited and it was, with apparent authority, stated that he would be in England before Christmas. It is now stated that another suit has been brought against jabes, ana tnat a conviction would postpone ex tradition for years." If anybody in this country is assisting Jabez to defeat the ends of justice, it is to be hoped that the Government will make strenuous efforts to discover the guilty parties. Nothing can be done in Argentina without money, bat everything with it and the detective genius of Scotland-yard ought to be equal to the task of discovering whether any or Jaoez mends in Great Britain are operating on his behalf. Mary, Queen of Soots, because she arrayed herself in white mooring on the loss of her husband, was Known amongst tne scotch as the White Queen and most people will remember the objectionable title of Bloody Mary, whioh the Protestants be stowed upon her cousin, Queen Mary of England. Queen Elizabeth can boast of a long list of nick names, most of them of a laudatory nature, although amongst them we come across the name Bloody Queen Bess, evidently given as a set-off to Bloody Vtneen Mary, to which we have already referred.

Without entering into a discussion as to the charac ters of these two Queens, most people, we think, will agree that both, or neither, of these nicknames were deserved. Of the other names bestowed upon Elisabeth we find Astrea, Gloriana, Maiden Queen, the Queen of Virgins, the World Wonder, the the Virgin Queen, as well as the well-known name of Good Queen Bess." People who are not doggy bat visit the show of the Sou th London Ball-dog Society, now open at tne Aquarium, will probably find as much interest in one of the cages as in all the rest pat together. In this cage they will notice a Urge dog dwelling in perfect amity with a diminutive cat and the doc so far exhibits not tbe least tendency to rival the boa- constrictor at the "Zoo." The South London Society is entitled to great credit for this endeavour to prove the docility of the bull -dog. Nevertheless, I fear the effort is a vain one, for so long as the bulldog bears his present phiz," the great majority of people will credit him with an undue amount of ferocity. We have heard a good deal of late about the adoption of the knickerbooker costume by lady cyclists, and the obloquy to many of them have been subjected in consequence.

On the other side of the Atlantic the same kind of thing exists. New York has a woman's bicycle club, the members of which have adopted a knioker costume, bat have found that tbe path which they follow is, metaphorically speaking, not paved with asphalt Ill-mannered men and boys have been subjecting them to ridicule, and, like other pioneers of reform, they have found their lot a most unhappy one. Patience and perseverance are, however, boand to result in success, and in the near future the lady riders, by showing a manly determination to do or die, will no doubt live down the opposition.

13. DIED STANDING ON HIS FEET. About an hoar before sunset last evening, Mary Gunsoly, a servant in the employ of John Koach, farmer living near Searsville, started out to drive up the cows. She had gone but a short distance along the road when she saw a man standing up against the stone wall or fence. The perfect nuist which he maintained, with the ghastly pallor of hit face, attracted the woman's attention, snd on closer observation the wot horrified to find that wot dead.

he at once gave the alarm. The neighbours assembled, carried the body to a house near by, snd summoned Dr. Coudict, who pronounced life extinct. The name of the dead man was Patrick Burke he was thirty years of age. It is supposed that he was taken suddenly ill while passing slong the road that he leaned against the wall and died instantly, his body being supported in an erect position by the wall.

After the inquest the coroner's jury rendered a verdict of death by heart failure superinduced by gastritis, or catarrh of the stomach an acute form of dyspepsia." The foregoing is quoted from the Middletown Argus of November 4th, 1893 an American newspaper. Now let us see what lessons the untimely demise of poor Pat Burke has for some other people who, no doubt, fancy themselves safe from such a sudden taking off. Mr. Thomas Hatt, of Widmere End, High Wycombe, Bucks, was a healthy enough man up to April, 1886. Then he began to weaken snd rail.

Why he should be ill he couldn't conjecture. 3o far as he could remember he had done nothing to bring it on. He felt surprised, as a man does at receiving an unexpected blow from behind. His nerves were all of a jangle, he had a bad taste in the month, and a sort of all-gone sensat'on as though the very life were ebbing out of him. His hands aad feet were cold aal clammy, and he often broke out into cold sweats.

Dark spots were all the time floating before his eyes, his appetite left him. snd when he did anything it lay upon him heavy and dull, and seemed to cause gnawing, grinding pain. 14 After a time." says Mr. Hatt, I had ipain snd palpitation at the heart, which I was told wss heart disease. At night my heart would thump so hard I could get no sleep it pounded like a muffled drum.

After a while the heart trouble got bo bad I wot afraid to go to bed, and uted to fit up nearly all night long. Later on I became so melancholy and nervous that I trembled from head to foot as I went about. I worked a little when I was able, but was always in pain. A doctor in Frogmore Gardens teated me for some time, but gave me no relief. I thought I might die any day, for I looked upon my complaint as heart disease.

I seemed to be walking in darkness on a narrow footpath between life and death. Tet the days, weeks, snd months dragged by I could only wait. It was in Ootober, 1896, that I first read of Mother Seigel's Curative 3yrup. I cant say I had any faith in it, but there wss muoh reason and sense in the published accounts of what it had done, that I got a bottle from Messrs, Landsdale and Chemists, Queen 's-square, and began to use it. Expecting little or uothiog, received much, for in two days I felt the welcome relief, and after having taken three bottles I touad myself in good health and have been so ever since that is, for six years.

Yu are at liberty to publish this letter If you think it might be useful to others, and I shall bo glad to answer inquiries. I am a chairmaker by trade, and in the employ ot Mr. Gibson, 81ater-street, High Wycombe. Yours truly (signed) Thomas Hatt, November 15th, 1892 Well, you say, how does poor Pat Burke's case connect with Mr. Haft's That's what we sre going to tell you.

The inquest showed that Bof'0 had no organic disease of the heart at all. hen the doctors out the heart oat of his body they could find no signs of disease about it. What killed him bo quickly then 1 Listen and leara. The heart derives its motion from tha same set of carves (the pneumogastric) that move the stomach and lungs. These nerves, poisoned and paralysed by acids bred by indigestion and dyspepsia, ceased at last to bave power over the heart.

Then what I It collapsed in a minute, and the man died before he had time evea to lie down on the ground. What a terrible thing if evervhodv is liable to a like fate who doesn't watch oat against indigestion. We congratulate Mr. Hatt on his escape. But it was long odds against him at one time.

It is well known that both tbe Queen and the Emperor William are exceeding anxious to get the Imperial marriage over and, for all reasons, both public and private. it is highly desirable that the Czar Nicholas should be settled in this respect as soon as possible.

It seems high time to inquire whether the War Office have anv intention of srrantins' medals or clasns to the men of the 1st West India Regiment who cook part in the expeditions against the Sofas and Fodi-Silah. Not only were the hardships endured by the troops on these occasions, and the energy and courage displayed, equal to anything that has been recognised by medals in previous West African wars, out several oi tne officers engaged nave long since been rewarded by suitable honours. Medals cost nothing in comparison with the value which is placed on them by soldiers, and this is in a special degree true of native troops. On the other hand, the with holding of such a recognition of merit, when it has been well earned, is apt to provoke a feeling which is far from desirable To those curious in French journalism it may be interesting to know how the respective journals of that country stand in point of circulation.

The Cxar was very reckless about himself during the latter part of his illness for, though he had been warned not to get out of his bed, even if he felt better, Professor Zacharin found him up one morning. Much surprised, he asked the Czar what doctor had given him leave to do so. His Majesty answered: "No doctor; it was done at the com mand of the Czar."
