THURSDAY, JAN. 3, 1881.
Ilns been kind enough to toll the
Americans that he considers Shakes
pcare our gicntcst poet. Itcally this
is -very kind of his loulship. 'I fancy,
from the report of his speech, he
thought gieat ciodit was due to him
for having made the discovery. Uut
I assure hN legal literary loidship
that he has enunciated no new theory.
Then we aic also told, with the air
of one who knows, that Blilton is
worth reading! I am absolutely over
come by all this critical acumen.
Why did the Lord Chief Justice save
all this fruit of a "life-long study"
for the Americans? Had we only
known earlier we might have proffered
the lately vacant post of Professor of
Poetry at Oxford to him. But not
satisfied with posing as a critic of
English literature, Lord Coleridge
tackles the Yankee on his own ground,
and tells the Ilaverford boys who is
the greatest American poet. The
worst of it was that his judgment
didn't coincide with that of his
guests; and I hear that literary
Americans have had their faith in his
lordship's .judgment severely shaken,
lie was sale so long as he kept to
Shakespeare, but when he came
down to modern limes he was
evidently quite out of his depth.
The Paris Union Medicale an
nounces, says Nature, a discovery
of the highest scientific interest, and
which, if it turns out to be real, will
show that prehistoric man is no
longer a myth. On piercing a new
gallery in a coal-mine at Bully
Grenay (Pas-de Calais) a cavern was
broken into containing six fossil
human bodies intact a man, two
women, and three children, as well
as the remains of arms and untensils
in petrilied wood and stone, and nu
jnerous fragments of mammals and
lisb. A second subtenauean cave
contained eleven bodies of large di
mensions, several animals, and a
great number of various objects, to
gether with precious stones. The
walls were decorated with designs of
combats between man and animals of
gigantic size. A third and still larger
chamber appeared to be empty, but
could not be entered in consequence
of the carbonic acid it contained,
which is being removed by ventila
tors. The fossil bodies have been
Tjrought up to the suiface, and live
of them will be exhibited at the
mairie of Lens, the others aic to be
sent to Lille in order to undergo ex
amination by the Faculty des Sci
ences. Eepresentatives of the Acad
emic des Sciences, of Paris, and of
the British Museum, having been tele,
graphed for, are expected to bo
Attendants at Windsor Castle
have to exhibit much tact in getting
rid of lunatics who desire to see the
Queen, to obtain rediess for their
wrongs, fancied or leal. On an
average theic are fully a dozen in the
course of a year. Some of them are
harmless, and others very violent.
They have been known to drive Up
to the Castle with a cabload of lug
gage and ask if their rooms are ready.
Others assert that Ihey have come to
claim the hand of the Princess Bea
trice. One afllicted person was
known to have come from America
for this purpose. lie was rich, had
n splendid turnout of portmanteaus
anil baggage, and his appearance as
tounded the sedate lodge-keeper at
one of the principal gates. But the
btartling information that this weal
thy American desired to become
bridegroom of a Boyal princess ic
called the worthy functionary to a
sense of the situation. The- marriage
of a member of the Boyal family
with a successful speculator in "Mle"
was a little more than loyal llunkoy
isin could stand. . 31. Faper.
Kvcry yenv Russia increases her
forces in the Northern Pacific, es
pecially in the island of Saghalicn,
which is being utilised not only as a
convict settlement, but as a depot
for coal and war materials. A tor
pedo factory has already been es
tablished there, and the harbour
which formerly was used onh for
merchant vessels, is now alive with
men-of-war, while tho hills which
surround the harbour nre crowned
with formidable forts. In the eveut
of war with Russia, our possessions
in the China Seas would be at her
meicy, for, as regards shore defences
Hong-Kong has none, and the few
ships that we have in tho far East
would have to guard other ports as
well as tho last mentioned one.
