According to a telegram from Rio de Janeiro, a great panic prevailed on the Bourse in that city to-day, owing to the heavy fall of the shares of the Leopoldina and Minas and Rio Railways. It is feared that this collapse will entail numerous failures.

The severe storm which has just visited the British Iles has not been equalled in extent since the remarkable disturbance of December 8, 1S80, when the barometer in the North of Ireland fell to the exceptionally low point of As was stated in these columns yesterday, the outlook on the Atlantic seaboard on Wednesday afternoon waa already becoming threatening.

Beyond the ocean the population of the United States increases at a rate commensurate with their consciousness of their power and their own interests. We saw the attack made by the M'Kinley Bill with amazement. It astounded us, and voices were heard loudly proclaiming that it was inconsistent with international law.

But nations will go yet farther in the promotion of self-interest. It is not improbable that in future wars will not be fought with arms but with clauses of Bills and with tariffs. We know not how Australia will develop. But in China a movement seems growing which may end with the complete exclusion of foreign productions.

Lieutenant Mansfield, of the Royal Naval Reserve, who on November 13 made a most successful ascent in his balloon Wanderer, descending by his parachute from an altitude of upwards of met his death to-day under circumstances which have thrilled the entire city with horror.

His recent descent attracted extraordinary interest here, partly on account of the remarkable success which attended it, and partly owing to the cool courage which Lieutenant Mansfield exhibited both in his preparations for his dangerous exploit and in the management of his parachute in the descent. An immense crowd accordingly assembled to-day in the Victoria Gardens to see his second attempt, Lord Harris, the Governor, and all the principal civil and military authorities being present. The balloon having been filled with gas was held by a number of Bluejackets, who let go the ropes the moment that Lieutenant Mansfield, having taken his seat on the bar, gave the word. The balloon went up very rapidly. When it had reached a height of some 400ft.

By 2 p.m. its centre was approaching the Norwegian coast but, while here and there the wind had lulled somewhat, it was blowing a whole gale along the Channel coast, accompanied by a high sea, and the South of England, after several hours of dry weather, was under a drenching rain. In the far west the conditions were once more assuming a very threatening appearance, another storm system being out over the ocean. The barometer was already falling in Ireland, the wind had backed to south-west, aud increased to a fresh or strong gale, with a high sea, rough, squally weatner, and rain.

Unless they did so he could not venture to predict the limits of the distress which would break out. The Treaties must be looked at as a whole and with patriotism. He believed that they were calculated to maintain and promote the internal prosperity of Germany and her position among the nations of the world. (Loud applause in many though not in all parts of the House). On behalf of the Catholic Centre Herr Reichen-sperger supported the Treaties.

They were, he said, in the interest even of the small cultivator, who needed cheap provisions and utensils. Count Kanitz strongly opposed them in behalf of the Conservative Right, and brought General Caprivi angrily to his feet to protest against the insinuation that the Chancellor had taken the advice of officials tainted with Liberalism. The debate stood adjourned. It is estimated that only 30 votes will be given against the Treaties. The majority of the Conservatives will accept them.

The Freisinnige (Cobdenite) Zeitung says that the Treaties make a breach in the existing false economical policy, but this breach must be further widened to secure free scope for German trade. After the Treaties, as before, there will be no country in the world where the people will eat such dear bread as in Germany.

BURMA. spectators saw Lieutenant Mansfield making desperate efforts to disengage his parachute, but the ropes were entangled and he could not free them.

The unhappy officer fell to the ground with an appalling swiftness. The body was terribly mangled. The catastrophe, which was witnessed by thousands of people, caused profound emotion. Lieutenant Mansfield had gained great popularity during his stay here. He aimed at promoting the use of balloons and parachutes for both military and naval warfare.

His balloon, which on November 13 descended in the sea, was much injured by the people sent to bring it to laud, and it is feared that this damage may not have been properly repaired before the second and fatal ascent was made. The Times of India gives the following narrative by Lieutenant Mansfield cf his parachute descent at Bombay on the 13th ult. At 7 a.m. I commenced inflating, and so well were operations carried out by Mr. H.

Jones and Mr. Pennington, that ac noon the Wanderer was fully inflated, and standing the burning sun without the least escape whatever. I must call public attention to this fact, that with a powerful balloon like the Wanderer it is unnecessary to fully inflate her. I did so because it guarded against any small leak and split which the utmost vigilance cannot guard against. The Wanderer one third full would have taken me easily off the ground.

But the tremendous speed at which she rose ought to convince all that a balloon is not an easy mark to hit with a bullet. After noon I was able to have a rest and take things easily. I then devoted one hour to drilling my crew I mean the men of the Marathon. I do not think one of those men had touched a balloon before. I told them to obey my orders.

Referring next to the diminution in revenue, consequent upon the reductions in the tariffs, the Chancellor said that, taking into account the States which would profit by the most favoured nation clause, the loss would be 17,000,000 or 18,000,000 marks (about He then proceeded to state that those States which are guaranteed the most favoured nation treatment under Ifetaffoa eecteb's telegram.

All day it was very strong, and after noon rain fell heavily for several hours.

Temperature had been down to 44deg. in the night, but it rose quickly with the warm gale, and before 9 a.m. it was attaining 57deg. later. On the corresponding day last year the thermometer did not rise above the freezing point.

The storm raged with fury in and around the Metropolis up till two o'clock in the afternoon. In South London considerable damage was done to house property. In the Wiltshire-road, Brixton, a high wall was blown down, and several persons who were passing bad a nartow escape of their lives. At one o'clock, during the height of the gale, a large tree was blown down near the Canterbury-road. At St.

A serious collision between hansom cabs occurred on Westminster-bridge, and another hansom cab was overturned near Vincent-square, Westminster. In the neighbourhood of the Oval the streets were strewn with slates and chimney-pots. At the Mitre Hotel, facing St. Thomas's Hospital, the skylight was torn away.

10. The public is beginning to exhibit some impatience at the inability of the police to discover the faintest trace of the murderer of Baroness Dellard. Yesterday, at Boulogne-sur-Seine, a commercial traveller, belonging to a large drapery house in Paris, was pounced upon by an excited crowd on suspicion of being the criminal, and dragged to the police station. His house-to-house visits had caused him to be suspected. A couple of broker's men who were loafing about in the neighbourhood were also seized upon, and their master, a process-server, on whom they were in attendance, narrowly escaped the same fate.

All the prisoners were, of course, released after a summary examination by the police inspector, but their arrest shows the temper of the crowd, and the extraordinary sensation which the murder of Baroness Dellard has created. v.v the liritish post at Nampaung has been raised to which ie also the strength of the Man-; CHINA. new regulation or Austrian currency.

The late Sir William emigrated to New South "Wales in 1839, and had done much to improve the railway communications in the Colony. He also devoted attention to scientific pursuits, especially in entomology, and in 1874 conducted at his own expense a successful expedition to New Guinea.

It declares that complaints of unremitnerativc values are general planters declai ing that frequen-ly the crop does not return the cost of production. A feeling of discouragement pervades the reports from the plantations, and a disposition is manifested to reduce the area sown with cotton.

The plantation price, which is the actual rate at the giu, averages 7.3c, while during the last five years tlie price has ranged from 8.4c. This decline is echoed in the records of export which during October averaged a value of 8 to 9 against 10 11 in The State averages are as follows Virginia. 7 81 DE FREYCINET AT THE FRENCH ACADEMY. tbree-mastedt'Chooner at Dover Bay, where there was a very heavy s- a running. The vessel was driving at her anchors away to the eastward, the seas breaking over her, and she was drifting ashore.

The Dover lifeboat was launched, and the harbour tug Granville went to her assistance. The tug managed to secure her and eventually brought her into port. The packet Maid of Kent, whicu left Dover yesterday afternoon with 114 passengers on board, did not reach Calais till five o'clock. She had a fearful passage. The service between Boulogne and Folkestone was suspended yesterday.

Our Calais Correspondent says a small beat, which appears to have belonged to an English vessel, has been picked up 15 miles north-east of Calais, and taken into that port. Leicestershire.

Tne storm which raged on Monday At Cambridge Town Council yesterday morning Mr. Viuter asked by what authority Superintendent Iunes produced before the Vice-Chancellor at the "Spinning House" trial the register of disorderly women for the borough.

The Town Clerk said Mr. Gray, one of the Proctors, sent to the police station for the book, and the superintendent of police subsequently attended and was called as a witness. Superintendent Innes wrote to the Mayor stating that the book was handed to the Rev. J. EL Gray, a member of the Watch Committee and Proctor of the University, at his request.

He (the superintendent) was authorised in his action by the terms of the Charter of James I. Alderman Cockerell said this justification was simply absurd. The Council decided, by 23 votes to four, to hold a special meeting on the 18th inst. to appoint delegates with special instructions to confer forthwith with the Member for the borough with a view to promote a Public Bill in Parliament for abolishing or limiting the powers of the University over persons not members of that body.

High corn duties had not done all that was anticipated they had only saved Agriculture from a crisis which must have affected other branches of industry. That crisis would, indeed, have been a national calamity it was not, as in England, where the landed proprietors were chiefly magnates who had been able to bear the abolition of the Corn Laws. Here there were many small landowners. Yes, an agricultural crisis would be a calamity for the State, for the landowners, who were attached from generation to generation to the soil, were the best props of society, and the family life of the labourers in the country was also a blessing to the State, and was a life that it was more difficult to achieve in the towns. Then it was imperative that the country should provide for its own needs, in case of war, and, as a soldier, he knew how essential that was.

Who could tell how the Great Powers would treat the Articles of the Paris Convention of 1856, regarding privateering, in case of a conflagration involving the whole Continent But he could not regard the reduction of the corn duties from 5 marks to 3h as endangering home agriculture. He must submit that if sacrifices were to be talked about, it was the State which had been making sacrifices for the sake of agriculture. The bow had been overstrung, and such an excessive strain on the State brought with it the danger of fostering an agitation most pernicious in its character. Referring to the wine duties. General von Caprivi said that what was intended was to open the German markets to Italian wines against French Bordeaux wines, which, as it was, were inferior, and only fit to mix with better qualities.

They wished to give to Italian wines a field of battle in Germany against French wines." (Laughter and cheers.) Turning to industry, he said industry had been described by Frederick the Great as the 44 nurse of the nation." That was still true, but German industry was not yet quite self-supporting, and required protection which the State was prepared to give.
