M . Frere-Orban speaks in the warmest terms of the conduct of the Emperor . Some allowance ought to be made for the enthusiasm of the Belgian premier , as he is speaking after , not one dinner , but many .
Alarmists Are Still Found To Regard The ...
Alarmists are still found to regard the conduct of Russia on the North-Western frontiers of India with suspicion . This is foolish , for " the unkindest cut of all" has been given us , not by Russia , but by France . Our future Indian difficulty will be the Suez Canal .

Mr . Stephanos Xbnos has published his long-threatened expos / of Overend , Gurney , and Co . The book is entitled " Depredations , " but it is , strange to say , not an autobiography . Mr . Xenos is , by his own showing , a poor shorn lamb of the Stock Exchange . Ke has one consolation , for no one can know better than he that there are others in his sad plight .
Constitution Hill Is The Nearest Road Fr...
Constitution Hill is the nearest road from Hyde park corner to Pall mall , but it is closed to the public . Why ? Because the occupants of Buckingham Palace may not be disturbed : but as Buckingham Palace is only occupied , except for a few days in the year , by anybody but a few servants , surely the public might be allowed the use of a road which is so convenient . It is hard to have all the disadvantages of a non-resident court , and none of its advantages .

There is a mist overhanging official language that is really disgusting to those who are accustomed to honest straightforward talk . The Government have been making arrangements

to bring home some of our troops from Canada , and spite the growing discord between this country and the United States , they see ho reason to alter their decision . Colonel North therefore enquired in the House the other night whether the forces that remained would be left in such a " state of efficiency as to numbers , ' * as to be prepared for " any emergency ; " to which y-si a * . mj * 4 « . mw * IV ^"** l J n «* W « iw WAil •¦ aw % 1 « a # 4 ^ iucvi T * #% 4- • i rJ / MJ * A & * J * si * ** A * * J ri Ti * m i t f \ / % juum J * jm * m * J

A Good Deal Of Ignorance, To Call It By ...
A good deal of ignorance , to call it by no harsher name ,, is daily displayed in this country in connection with foreign politics , and the Liberal papers especially have the very vaguest ideas on the subject of European Liberalism . For instance , reformers here are just now going into ecstacies about the coming French elections , and hoping , against hope , that the Opposition will come in strongly represented . Two average specimens of that gallant party are at hand as an illustration of its political respectability . M . Renan , philosopher and Atheist , and M . Henri
Rochefort , Republican and Socialist , have pushed themselves forward as candidates for seats in the new Assembly . One gentleman is ready to shout , " a la Lanterne ? the other to set up the Goddess of Reason . We have , fortunately , no parallels to these worthies in this country ; but had we , it is certainly to our credit that they would not have the remotest chance of being returned to Parliament . M . Renan and M . Rochefort would , with us , find their respective levels in Holywell street and Codger ' s Hall . As they are not " with us , " we very logically wish the one to destroy religion , and the other overturn an empire J
We Have Often Drawn Attention To The Bru...
We have often drawn attention to the brutal ignorance and stupidity of the police , particularly in their treatment of persons who have fainted or been seized with a fit in the street . It is a very serious question to those who suffer from any tendency to epilepsy or fainting , that if they fall down in the streets they are pretty sure to be taken off to the stationhouse as drunk and incapable , and there killed ; for it amounts to that . In all such cases instant measures of relief are necessary , and in most cases the best thing to give is brandy .
Those persons subject to painful fainting , hysterical , or epileptic attacks ( which all depend more or less on deficiency of blood in the brain ) generally carry with them some stimulant , or , on feeling any premonitory symptoms , at once get it either at some public house or the chemist ' s . In most cases , then , these persons , when found , smell of spirits , which , according to the policeman , is quite sufficient to settle the diagnosis of their complaint . " Drunk" is the instant decision of these lights of science , and off the victim is dragged to the stationhouse , where , in a damp cell , he is left to recover if he canmost probably to die . The case of Mr . Joyce , which occurred remarksotten
last week , has suggested these , we nave pointed out the remedy . Let the police be ordered in all such cases to remove the sufferer to the nearest doctor ' s or chemist ' s . If his state be caused tfy drink it may be none the less dangerous , * and the doctor , not the police-serjeant , is the proper person to apply what remedies may be necessary . Above all , in cases where the police wilfully infringe this rule , let them be punished at once and by a public , not by a secret , tribunal .
