Those annual gatherings of volunteers have now come to be regarded as mnch in the light of a general holiday by a large section of the public as they are esteemed by volunteers, for the reason that they afford a healthful day's exercise in the art of mimic warfare, and a means of testing by comparison the value and effect of the previous year's training. The result of the first mentioned consideration is that the promoters of the annual review see it to be to their interest to select a site which should be at the same time easy of access and pleasant when reached, and to their advantage to choose a scene for the evolutions which shall afford the best training to which the volunteers have been subjected. The march past commenced at twelve o'clock punctually, in fact, as soon as the first corps reached the Downs they continued their march, and were received by the other corps in review order, before Lieut-General Sir Hope Grant, G.C.B., and Major-General Sir Charles SUvely, K.C.B., his Royal Highness Prince Arthur, and a brilliant staff of officers, who took up a position immediately facing the Grand Stand, which was filled in every part by a distinguished company of ladies and gentlemen.

The line of march was kept by a detachment of the Innia-kuling Dragoons, the troop of which, who were drawn up opposite the saluting flag, forming a guard of honour. The hght cavalry of the Hon. Artillery Company led the march, which is at this moment (ten minutes past one) delayed by the non-arrival of the 4th Prince Edward's) division. The bands have ceased playing, and are now waiting the appearance of that division, which will conclude the march past. The march past, which, as stated, was commenced at twelve clock, concluded at twenty minutes to two After passing the saluting flag (the Royal Standard), the different brigades proceeJed to the various positions assigned them previous to going into action.

The first and second divisions (the defending force) proceeded at once to the reverse slopes on the ridges between Newmarket-hill and Rottingdean, where they were drawn up in two hnes facing the westward the third and fourth divisions (the attacking force), who were supposed to hnve embarked at Dieppe, and landec at New-haven, at the toll-gate east of the coastguard station, proceeded to the position in a line facing the eastward, where they opened out into lines, with the right resting on the sea near the toll-irate, and the left stretching towards the racecoaise. When thus positioned the contending armies, with the vast expanse of glittering sea to the south, and tens of thousands of spectators in the north, presented a very pleasing picture. At three o'clock the attacking forces quietly advanced in eschelon of the brigades from the right, and at once commenced the attack. They were received in a manner they least expected, and were repulsed amidst the shouts and cheers of the defenders. Finding themselves thus repulsed, they returned in good order through the second line, which speedily advanced to the attack.

A most determined fight here ensued, but, like the previous engagement, resulted in the defeat of the for hiw7 leST been forwarded to the papers Bbhon AhJff uTe4he Rev.

Dear wWh 'My attetion has been called to a paper to wmcn your names are appended, purporting to contain 4 a rlm0l9 against the decision of the Judieial TwE e.fmle P7 Council in the case of Hebbert 7ne U1rtainty of my direction, during my SSg from this place to England, may make it difficult for me to send an answer to your address so soon LiSSS wwh after its presentation. Meanwhile, the gravwyot the consequences involved in its publication seems to me to call for an immediate expression of opinion on my part respecting its contents. I have perceived that an application has been made by petition to her Majesty in Uouncd for the rehearing of this case. The presentation of such a petition, if fitting grounds for a rehearing can be alleged, seems to me perfectly constitutional, and, of course, it may turn out, after all, that the lately-denvered recommendation of the Judicial Committee of ie fnvy Council to her Majesty may not prove to be the filial judgment of the Court of Appeal. But in the document to which your names are appended thiB recommendation is treated as the judgment of the Highest Court, and 1 feel myself constrained to make some remarks upon your remonstrance, viewed in this aspect, lest serious misapprehensions should get abroad as to the duty of the clergy in reference to the decision of our Courts.

I trust you will allow me to remark that I have some difficulty in clearly understanding the exact meaning of this paper tnough, perhaps, the ambiguity of which 1 feel disposed to inseparable from the nature of a document intended to embrace so great a variety of signatures of earnest-minded men as I find attached to it I confess the circulation and publication of a remonstrance against a decision of any of our highest Courts of Appeal seems to me both unusual and inconvenient. Those who are dissatisfied with any of our laws, ecclesiastical or civil, as explained by our highest tribunals, have a perfect right to use every legitimate means, by petition or otherwise, to obtain an alteration of the law; or, again, if they consider the Court of Appeal to be improperly formed, it is a perfectly right course to apply to the legislature for an alteration of the nature of the Court. But the publication of a remonstrance against the decision of the legally-appointed judges in any particular case seems to me scarcely the right way of attaining either of these objects. Indeed, the present remonstrance might, at first sight, appear to imply an accusation against Lord Chancellor Hatherley, the Archbishop of York, the Bishop of London, and Lord Chelmsford, of either being ignorant of the law which they are called NOTTS, COUNTY ELEVEN v. 22 COLTS.

The funeral of the infant Prince Alexander John Charles Albert, who was born an Thursday the 6th met, and dUd the foil-wing day at about 2 p. took place at Sandringbam on Tuesday. The remains were buried the churchyard adjoining the park, the grave being at the east end of the church, opposite the chancel window a position in which it can be seen from the windows of the royal residence. The funeral procession left the hall at one o'clock, walking in the following order The Dean of Windsor and the Rev. W- L.

Can any man doubt that, if the supervisors of the Excise were turned loose upon these pUces, to proceed against them for adulterations, and if the licensing magistrates declined to renew the licence for a house against which adulteration had been proved, we should be able to shut up the worst drinking shops by the score? It would, at any rate, be a peculiar exhibition if the licensees of such establishments dared to come forward as grievance-mongers.

Their grievance would be they were not allowed to sell drugged beer and poisoned gin at their own pleasure and for their own profit. Has the plan been tried? Are the licensing magistrates so utterly unworthy of public confidence that they could not be trusted to play their part in such a crusade against the abominable establishments which simply thrive by dispensing poison to helpless and ignorant men? Why, again, are not the police authorised to lay informations constantly and emphatically against ill-governed houses where the conditions of the licence are daily and nightly infringed We read too much of petty and harassing proceedings against respectable publicans, who have maintained an unblemished character in their neighbourhood for years. The noted and proven haunts of thieves and prostitutes are regarded with indifference but woe betide the publican, even though he may have a twenty years' good character at his back, if any one of his customers probably without his knowledge play a game at his house for the price of a pot ef beer. We strain at a gnat here and there, and we swallow camels by the score. Why enact a new law until the old one has been fairly tried and has failed? Vast difference of opinion, then exist upon almost every clause of the bill but we shall be surprised to hear that there is any difference at all with respect to the proposal for shortening the hours in London.

We do not speak ef provincial towns we are not pointing our remarks at rural districts. We confine ourselves for the present to the state of feeling and opinion in the metropolis. We make bold to say, then, that any attempt to tamper with the hours during which as the law at present stands- public-houses are allowed to be open, will be attended with the most disastrous consequences. The mere ruffians, of course, will kick against it but, what is far worse, and far more to the purpose, the bulk of the respectable inhabitants of the metropolis will think that, for once in a way, there is something to be advanced on the side of ruffianism, and a great deal to be urged on their behalf. Why should they be subjected to gross inconvenience because certain persons behave improperly in public-houses If we could make a law which would cut equally all round, it would be another matter.

Bring the club-houses in Pall-mall and elsewhere under the operation of Mr. Brace's clause by some marvel of human ingenuity contrive that every head of a private family shall keep the key of his cellar in his pocket, and lock up the sherry bottle during such hours as the public-houses must be closed by law and we shall stand in a different position. Why is a man to enjoy every comfort simply because he is rich enough to lay up a store of liquor on his premises, and the poor man to be cut off from his chance of a drink of beer because he is compelled to live from hand to mouth We grant that certain limits may be imposed from public considerations, but disastrous results will certainly follow if we attempt by a hair's breadth to overstep the bound ries which the community has agreed to respect. Thus we have, as the Sunday arrangements, the shutting up of the houses at midnight on Saturday night, during church hours on the Sunday, at eleven o'clock on Sunday night, the last proviso being a great boon to licenced victuallers, ln doing so much, have we not gone far enough On other days, and considering the late hours which must necessarily prevail in a town like London, is it not sufficient that the public houses are closed at one a.m. Mr.

Brace's idea of altering the hour at which they are to be re-opened, on the ground that a few young men going to their work may be induced to treat each other, seems to us simply preposterous. The market-people and the early birds of London require the accommodation, and will not be denied. If Tipsy Tom is resolved to treat Drunken Dick, or vice versa, he will always be able te pull a little bottle out of his pocket and interchange the friendly dram, all Mr. Brace's regulations to the contrary notwithstanding. On the whole, we should presume the effect of this late-opening clause to be that thousands of decent men will be put to serious inconvenience, and that the pocket-pistol movement will attain considerable proportions with determined tipplers.

Is it worth while to upset existing arrangements for such a result Telegraph. Memorial to thb Latk Lord Derby. On Saturday afternoon there was a meeting of gentlemen in Preston with reference to promoting a suitable memorial to the late Lord Derby. There is already a considerable nucleus fund in hand, the money having been raised in penny subscriptions from working men, Sec, through a central committee in Preston, prior to the decease of the late Lord Derby. At the meeting on Saturday afternoon Mr.

Aid. Rawcliffe, of Preston, occupied the chair, and there were representatives present from different towns in Lancashire. Various suggestions were made as to what form the memorial should assume an wjiere it should be placed, and eventually it was decided that it should be raistd in Avenham Park, Preston, but the chnracter of it was not specified, and that an effort to obtain further rubscriptions should be made. The Handel Festival The fourth great triennial Handel Festival will be held at the Crystal Palace on the 16th, 19th. 21st, and 23rd, of June next The first day is fixed for the rehearsal, the second for the Messiah the third for a selection, and the last for Israel in Egypt" The general rehearsal has acquired almost the full value of a regular preform an ce, and admission to it is sought by thousand who cannot attend on subsequent days.

The selections given at the rehearsals will, as far as may be, furnish an epitome of the festival proper, and will comprise the chief beauties of each programme, both in the solo and choral departments. Sir Michael Costa retains the post he has held from the beginning, and the chorus will be on the same scale of magnitude as that of the festival of 1868, and will comprise, in addition to the large contingent furnished by the metropolis, representatives from all parts of the three kingdoms. The band will consist of all the leading professional players, including the orehestra of the Crystal Palace, the Italian Operas, the Sacred Harmonic Society, the two Philharmonic Societies, and members of the best provincial bands. These, however, will be augmented as heretofore by a careful selection from the mass of amateurs, whose services are so readily placed at the disposal of the directors. The musical arrangements will again be undertaken by the Sacred Harmonic Society.

Both the press and the public have spoken in the highest terms of the arrangements made for the accommodation of the festival audiences, and care will be taken to sustain the reputation thus honourably earned. Abolition of Flogging in the Navt. A parliamentary return, moved for by Mr. Otway, in preparation for bis opening the forthcoming campaign in the House of Commons, against flogging in the navy, has lately been issued, bv which we find that in the three years, 1867, 1868, and 1869, 238 seaman and 66 marines underwent corporal punishment. Thirty of the sentences were by court-martial in 141 cases the punishment was ordered by a captain commanding' in 86 by a commander commanding, and jii L1VBrm mnd, Hammond, Jacalin, and Berry are doubtless distinguished men in their own particular rural spheres, but they did not afford much cricket when standing before Wootton and A.

Out of twenty entries for the Farmers' Plate fifteen put in an appearance to contend for the 100 so liberally offewd by the Stewards, and when amongst them were seen All Fours and Football, who were here last year, nothing else were inquired after. The betting fraternity held their Babel as usual near the gate below the hill, but I fancy business was slack with them.

A good start was followed by six out of the fifteen refusing at the first fence, which weeded the field considerably, but most of the ethers kept I heir ground, although not able to cope with old Football, who might not have won so easily had not the horse who stuck to him best refused the last fence which completely threw him out and left Mr. Stokes' horse to canter in.

This was followed by the principal race the Leicestershire Hunt Steeplechase a sweepstakes of 5 sova each, with 100 added, and brought out a brilliant field of ftfteen, with most cf the crack gentlemen riders of the day up. The start was a splendid sight nd they all came over the first fence to-pther. one only coming to grief and losing its rider, the horse galloping on with the others, and not being stopped until he had been over five or six fences The pace, which was tremendous throughout, shook off several, and put out their chance, but six or seven were well up at the end of the race, and a most exciting finish ended in Captain Sing'eton's Blue Light landing the stakes.

Next came the chief officers of the Rval Household, the Hon.

and Mr. olzmann, and the medical attendants, Dr. Fnrre and Mr. "Kendall. The other officers of the estate and servants dosed the procession, which numbered about 70 persons.

The service was read by the Rev. W. L. Onslow, a small portion being performed by the Dean of Windsor. Before the coffin was lowered the Prince placed on it six immortelles, for the Princess, himself, the Qu-en, the Queen of Denmark, and the young Princes.

The labourers and school children lined the path from the garden to the church gate, and a body of young ladies in white dresses scattered white violets and primroses and anemones on the coffin, instead of -earth, at the sentence, "Ashes to ashes," The service was most impressive. THE LATE QUEEN OF SWEDEN. A correspondent writing from Gothenburg on the Slat says The sorrowful intelligence of the death of the Queen, which had for some days been dreaded, was made known here yesterday at noon, and has cast a gloom over the whole country. Her Majesty was much beloved, and her loss is universally bewailed, for she was indeed a good woman, a devoted wife and mother who was always doine good in the most unassuming manner. Her memory will be ever cherished by her own family, around which, even in cloudy days, she shed light and peace, ongaaes irom its leit, triumphantly drove back the invaders, who gradually but steadily retired towards Brighton, attempting whenever the slightest chance occurred to take up a defensive position, and make a stand.

All this time the fighting continued with great force, and the spectacle was highly effective and interesting. After a hot contest, the battle terminated soon after four o'clock in the defeat of the invaders. A melancholy incident has happened, which has thrown considerable gloom over the corse of the London Rifle Brigade. Joseph Pragnell, a member of the brigade, fell down in a fit soon after marching past, and died almost instantaneously. He was quite well the moment before.

The review at Brighton on Monday, considered as a Cockney holiday, was all that could be wished. Brilliant sunshine, and a cool almost too cool breeze made the outing very pleasant, and of the 40,000 or 50,000 persons who congregated on the Downs there were probably few disposed to grumble at not having had their money's worth. The railway company, too, did their work admirably, and volunteers and visitors vie with each other in the praises they bestow on the management which secured them a safe, quick, and pleasant journey. Upon the more serious question how far the volunteers themselves showed increasing efficiency opinions differ, but a collation of details in the accounts published thus far does not seem to warrant the phrases of extravagent eulogy with which some of the reporters for the morning papers begin their letters. An experienced observer, from whom we received a long telegram, which was published in our latest edition yesterday afternoon, expressed the opinion that the march past was the worst that has yet been seen at Brighton and the Time reporter, though anxious to make the best of all he saw, allows that the proper distances were frequently lost sight of in the artillery brigade to a flagrant extent and one or two corps ignored the niceties of 4 touch and 1 The half-hoar's break also in tha continuity of the march is a matter that requires official explanation." The account in the Standard, which is written with mere discrimination than is displayed by most of the other morning papers, expresses the opinion that the sham fight, as a sight, and as an object for an excursion, was decidedly a success but as an instructive series of manoeuvres it certainly failed greatly.

The writer says It was not the volunteers themselves who broke down. Ae a rule both officers and men seemed veil up in their work, and were quite capable of executing the simple manoeuvres which alone are required in an actual battle. We were also struck with the general steadiness, silence and subordination shown by the men and the authoritative tone of command assumed by the officers. In short the yelunteers as a rule did excessively well The shortcomings were on the part of the brigadiers and generals, some of whom certainly displayed a singular ignorance of tactics. There was no skill employed in the disposal of the artillery, the (runs of the assailants not being massed, ae is the rule, and batteries being sent hither and thither without escort.

The cavalry were exposed nrrrlhrnly to fire, and were not employed ai they ought to havfbeen in a dash against the enemy's exposed flank, which they could have approached quite closely under cover of the ground. There was no ensemble in the operations at first the head of the echelon was the weakest part of the line of battle, and for some time a gap was left in that line. Afterwards the whole army was engaged in two lines, the only reserve being a few guns, which could not be moved in advance, and a brigade of infantry, which was too far off to be of use. There was a good deal of useless marching and counter-marching, and to crown all a line of skirmishers during the advance was extended in rear of the second line of the left wing. None of these faults can i shook eff the lot and added one more to his many successes.

upon to interpret, or of having perverted its interpretation for an unrighteous party purpose. I feel confident, dear brethren, that you intended no such accusation. But as little can I suppose that you wish to enunciate the principle that the judges of our supreme courts of appeal are bound, not to interpret the -law according to their consciences, but rather, in delivering their judgments, to accommodate its provisions to the changeable rQle of what may seem to be immediately expedient. Again, I feel myself at a loss quite to understand the request, which, upon the supposition, as I apprehend your meaning, that final judgment has been delivered, you make to the bishops, that they should abstain from acting upon this being certain that yon do not so estimate the bishop's office as to consider it superior to the law, and that you will at once acknowledge with me that the chief pastors of our Church are of all men the very last who onght to be requested to set to this nation the example of refusing obedience to the highest tribunals. Such obedience I feel sure you consider to be the duty of all good citizens, and to be especially incumbent on all ministers of Christ, not only in our own Church, but among nonconformists.

And here I will remark that Roman Catholics, and all bodies of dissenters, are liable to be continually called upon, like ourselves, to submit the terms of their contracts in matters most intimately affecting their doctrine and discipline, to the decision of the courts of law. This is an obligation from which no section of the community can escape under a well-ordered Government and in the records of our courts we have continually recurring instances of such dacisions affecting the principal religious bodies in the kingdom. I believe, however, that the real object of your remonstrance, notwithstanding that I trust you will excuse me for calling the ambiguity of its wording, is merely this you are anxious lest the late decision should lead to a rigorous investigation into the exact mode in which the rubrics, which are the subject of that judgment, are complied with in every parish in England. Tou, therefore, fear lest the liberty of the clergy may be unduly interfered with, and you deprecate the evil which might arise from the sudden introduction in many parishes of changes from practices which you believe have given no offence, and which have been adopted under the conscientious conviction that they were not irreconcilable with the law. I will not.

therefore, hesitate to remind you that the whole practice of the episcopate of England in the administration of its duties is averse to anything like tyrannical interference with individual liberty. We have long learned by experience that we can trust our clergy, and except when complaints are made against their mode of performing Divine service, our rule is to leave them to act according to their own consciences under direction of the rubries. I have already intimated to others that what I conceive this judgment has done, is to state the law in reference to the illegality of the so-called sacrificial vestments, and in reference to the position of the officiating minister at the celebration of the Holy Communion. The rubrics, interpreted by the Supreme Court, form the lawful rule of Divine service which the clergy are bound to yield a loyal obedience, and of which they are bound to observe every particular when required by authority. But certainly, as a matter of fact, not all the clergy are expected by their parishioners or required by their bishops, rigidly to observe every point in the rubrics at all times and under all circumstances.

No doubt in such matters the clergy will be ready to listen to the paternal advice of their bishops, which I feel sure will always be given with full consideration of the particular circumstances of our parishes, and of the delicacy and difficulty of introducing changes from established usage. Still, in points where the law is dear, the chief officers of the Church must of course be prepared to enforce its observance in cases which are brought before them in a legal way. Suffer me, dear brethren, in conclusion, to beg you not to be disquieted by any strifes respecting matters affecting the vestments or posture of thel clergy. Such things cannot touch your teaching of the Gospel of Christ, or affect the validity of His Sacraments. In days when every effort is required to resist uagodliness and infidelity, all our zeal and energy ught to be directed to the promotion of real religion amongst our people.

Earnestly praying that you and all your brethren of our National Church may heartily unite with one mind in tho furtherance of this great am, your faithful brother and servant, A. C. Cantdab. Chateau Eleanore, Cannes, April 6." Fatal Aocidekt ok thi Sooth Wales Railway. Cabdift, Saturday.

Bignall soon after hit Randon to square leg for 3, and there were symptoms that the bowling was not quite "good enough. After further runs had been made, Sella rs took the place of Randon, 18 runs being then on. Barnes also gave way to Pike, and io a few overs afterwards Biro all was missed at wicket, his score then being at 11 After nutting on four more, Bignall was again missed, this time by Butler, at cover slip. Runs were then got without difficulty, and when 34 had been put on Lei vers went on at Sellers' end and Berry (slows took the place of Pike. Oscroft obtained a three off the slows.

In Leiver's third over. Bignall was exceedingly well caught at long leg by Pike. His score consisted of twenty-three, including two 38 and one 2. (One wicket for 40.) Selby joined Oscroft, and the two went on getting runs slowly. A change was made with the score at 45, Hickling going on at Leiver's end: then when three more runs had been put on Holdsworth took the bottom end.

Selby now made several good and his play was very steady whilst that of Oscroft was remarkably brilliant A Hind having replaced at 59 Thompson superseded Holdsworth, and began with a wide. The great fault of all the bowling was that it was pitched too short. The monotony of the game was broken by a fine drive by Oscroft off Thompson. Singles followed, and then Selby snicked for three. At a quarter to six, and the score at 75, the captain (Randon) went on again this tine at the Bridgford end Jacklin taking the other.

Oscroft drove May's first ball for a Selby.after batting steadily for some time, was well taken at point by Hind off Jacklin.

Butler also delivered three maidens in succession. Daft played one straight down for a single off Pad-ley, and the next ball Parr played into the slips and was caught (137 for four wicketa) Parr's well-played innings included a 4, four 3a, and singles Wild joined Daft, but the then played one of Padley's back to him, which he took with one hand.

After Martin Mclntyre had taken the place of Daft he made a great hit on for three, the ball reaching the pavilion this he followed with a very hard drive from the other end and he was evidently in hitting form. The captain the Celts then replaced Butler, and Barnes Padiey. Runs were then got slowly, and King, a dapper little player, made a very smart catch at point, disposing of Mclntyre. for 147.) The game went on slowly for some time after A Shaw joined Wild.

Shaw was hardly in his usual farm, and when he had scored two he was missed by Randon at short-slip. After dinner the game went en quietly as heretofore, and hut few runs were got. Padiey appeared as wicket keeper. Then Wild failed to get fair hold of one from Barnes, and was caught at short-leg (7 for 158.) Biddulph was the next man, and after making 4, including a hit for 3, he was clean bowled by Jackson who had just renlaced Birnes. (8 for 165.) The rain now began to fall, and was decidedly unpleasant.

Shaw, after being joined by Wootton was again missed, this time by A Hind at long-off. Soon after, when Wootton had made three or four runs, the rain stopped the play.

King and Smith showed the best batting form, and the fielding of the former was also clean and smart. The wicket keeping of the three who tried their hands was not of a very high order, Beardsall, according to our fancy, however, having the best style.

The gross produce of the year ending on that date was 69,945,220. If the expenditure for the financial year which has now commenced were the same as in the past year, the Chancellor of the Exchequer would have a surplus of some 3,000,000. and with that handsome balance great benefit might have been conferred on trade and the burden of the tax -payer considerably alleviated.

One of the men alone of the party could swim, but he in some way got underneath the boat and was therefore unable to render aid to either of his companions, when Stephen Blaike, the lock-keeper, hravely jumped a depth of 12ft. into the pound, the water being more than 6ft. deep at the time, and swam at once to the rescue of the girl who had also got entangled in some way in the boat without being able to keep her head above water. He succeeded in bearing her to the edge of the lock, where, by hanging to a chain with one hand, in his other arm he was just able to support the poor girl. In the meantime one of the men had swum to the opposite side of the lock, while the other had managed to get a holding on the bottom of the capsized boat.

The wife of the lock-keeper finding out what had occurred, rushed out of the house, and by her cries called the attention of two gentlemen who had just been walking down the river side. They were not long in making their way to the spot, when they were at once able to comprehend the fearful situation of the case. There was no boat at hand, and apparently there were no other means whatever of getting the unfortunate people out. They at once ran to Mr. Cooper's inn, where in the yard they fortunately found a ladder, with which, although it proved but just long enough to reach the surface of the water, they succeeded in rescuing first the girl and then the three men, Blake insisting upon being the last who should be helped out.

Philip Armstrong, ef Berehaven. The offences were stated to have been committed on the night of the 14th of March. The defendant, a married man, whose wife has, however, till lately resided at Malta, was on visiting terms with the Armstrong family, made presents to the young girl and her elder sister, and took them out on excursions. Nothing was suspected as wrong by the parents until January 21st, when Mrs. Armstrong discovered some letters written by the defendant to the complainant.

Mrs. Armstrong, knowing defendant to be married, at once wrote to him in strong terms but he strongly protested his innocence, continuing, however, to write to Miss Armstrong. In March he asked her to come with him on the 14th of that month, at eight o'clock; and, under the direction of her parents, she went into the garden to meet him, Dr. and Mrs. A rmstrong remaining hidden near at hand.

After prearranged signals, defendant appeared on the road, and pressed complainant to come out to him for the purpose of eloping but, refusing to do so, the defendant attempted to force her, when she screamed, and then, according to the girl's evidence, he struck her twice en the head with a stick. Complainant called her parents, and defendant ran away. After evidence had been given on both sides, the charge of abduction was dismissed, and informations were returned to the quarter sessions on the charge of assault. Defendant was liberated on bail. Great Capture Gamblers.

bout ten o'clock on Monday night a large force of police and detectives surrounded the Lamb and Flag public-house, Rose-court, Garrick-street, St. Martin's-lane. Several officers first entered the house, and, on entering a large room unetairs, they found a large number of men gambling. At a given signal upwards of 60 police entered the house, whilst others guarded every means of exit. About 30 men, some of them respectable shopkeepers, were at once taken into custody.

Immense excitement in the whole neighbourhood followed, and for a long time Bow-street was so thronged that it was difficult to get near the station. Considerable merriment was afterwards caused by the police also seizing the long tables and benches in the room, and conveying every one of them te the station. Great excitement was created in Bow-street yesterday afternoon by the examination before the magistrates of the men who had been arrested, mostly ews. The court was so crowded with the prisoners that space had to be found for many of them in the attorney's box. When the police entered the house they found the door of the gambling room fastened, and they had to force it.

Dice and money were found on the table. The defence was that the room had been hired for a friendly meeting by some Jews during the passover festival. After a lengthened examination two of the persons who had hired the room were fined ten pounds each, seven others were fined five pounds each, and some others again in the nominal penalty of ten shillings.
