pecting a scheme which excites lively interest
in Spain, a Spanish newspaper, published on
the northern frontier, states that a canal from
the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, which is to
convert the Iberian Peninsula into an island,
appears now to be in a fair way to become an
accomplished fact. Starting from the Gironde,
the proposed canal is intended to touch Tou-
louse, continnintr throuch Lanrucdoc and joia-
iDg the Mediterranean near Narbonne. As the
site for a commercial emporium, Xarbonne
Holds a position seconds to none in r ranee,
being placed at an angle of the Gulf of Lyons,
and in the Taller of the Andc. Accord inc to
the journal referred to, tho contract for the
works is signed between the founders and the
contractors of the Suez Canal fora canal capa
ble of taking vessels of the Unrest size. The
canal, if made, would constitute a nc v lino of
dele nee lor France, wbicu, it is hoped, would
remove the objections made by the French
military authorities to the perforation of tho
Pyrenees at the points most convenient for
Spain Can franc, lor instance. It would not
only bring some of the Spanish ports nearer to
those of England and Northern Europe, but
would connect those of Catalonia with the
Biscayan provinces, Asturias, and Galicia.
ice canal, it is thought, will aflcct untavour
ablv some of the southern ports, for what rea

expected to be considerably reduced.
CJitben Vxctobia's Abearance. Queen
Victoria I saw twice while in England once
on the platform of a railway station, and a
second time walking in tho grounds of Wind
sor Castle. The Queen looked just as do her
pictures, with the exception that her color and
her eyes, her month and her gross figure, all
give her a very common appearance There
is nothing regal, or even dignincu, in her man
ner or walk. She wears very largo shoes, and
dresses in deep mourning, with a widow's cap.
She has no grace of figure or outline, and, in
short, her whole appearance goes to disprove
the tbeorj that patrician birth is evidenced in
The population in Ireland is now very near
ly the same as it was in tho year of the Union,
5,100,000, the greatest increase up to 1611,
vrhen it reached 8,109,000, having been entire
ly lest. But whereas in 1832, on tho passing
the reform bill, Ireland had 32.32 percent,
of the population of the United Kingdom, it
has now but 14.81 per cent, and its electors,
who were 11.31 percent, of the whole in 1832,
are now but 7.15.
Mr. Oqnklingis giving tho lawyers points
in the matter of courtesy. Said he, speaking
in the Uoyt will case to Mr. Van Santvood,
also a lawyer; "Would yoa have any objec
tion to afford mo sufficient time to interpose an
objection against tho admission of sorao things
you read?" "Xot at all," replied the witness.
I should deem it an acme of bliss to sit horo
all the week and answer your questions at
your pleasure. Still, I must admit lhat I havo
somewhat of a desire to getaway." "Thank
yon," replied the cx-scnator. "Wo should be
painfully grieved to lose you."
