London, March 80, 1871. The event of the
week In unquestionably tbe opening of the Royal
Albert Hall f Arts and Sciences by the Queen
In perron yesterday, In a bitter northeaster of
our tine March kind. Wby the hall was ever
built no one (except, perhaps, the' contractor)
seem to know. Now that It Is areallzed fact,
prodigious colisseum of red brick and terra
cotta, looking for all the world like a Brolrtig
nagtan (rame-ple, everybody Is trying
to imagine n?es for it. The Cooper
Institute in New York is dedicated "to
art and science," but the Albert Hill clearly
does not aim at being a Cooper Institute. Will
"art " mean monster concerts and "sciences"
experimental lectures? As it is important that
the big place should pay its expenses, its mana
gers will, I fancy, find it hard to keep to the
loftiest class of eutertainmcnts only. Already
we hear that the building is occasionally to be
ntU;zed as a cattle show! The private owner
ship of boxes is an original feature of the hall.
To procure funds for building, boxes were sold
out-and-out-at least for 99i years to private
Individuals, the price of the best being 1000
apiece. The owners are now fitting up their
ten ments each according to his fancy, and the
question is already being raised whether each is
not entitled to claim the electoral franchise in
respect of his costly fragment of leasehold pro
perty. The telegraph will no doubt have told you the
dry 'acts of last week's royal wedding, so I will
not say much about it. I was in the crowd of
E on boys who dragged the carriage of our
Princess Royal (now Imperial Princess of Ger
many) np Windsor Hill on the marriage-day,
and can safely say, in spite of the dowry agita
tion, that no one of the royal weddings has been
eo nationally popular as this of the Princess
Louise, Marchioness of Lome (as her title is to
be.) Many of us would have preferred its post
ponement till after Easier, as tbe particular date
could be of no particular moment, but we
ehouldn't care to imitate the egregious unchanta
bleness of a certain Scotch minister, who has
come out with the suggestion of a service of
mourning and humiliation by way of protest
against Lenten nuptials. Hugh Suther
land, tailor of Dundee, hit a much more
practical and praWevoriby nail on the head,
though his protest has a whimsical sound. To
the sheriff of his county this doughty tailor ad
dressed a formal document, in which, stating
that '5t was averred" the corporation of Dundee
meditated treating themselves and friend?, on
the strength of the wedding, to "cake, wine,
and a banquet," and that the cost of all this
would come out of the borough rates, to which
he as a ratepayer objected, he wound uji by re
quiring the sheriff to see that the felonious cake,
etc., be countermanded. In justice to our local
authorities it should be said that, as a rule,
they have learned bv this time that corporate
funds are not meant to be incorporated (in a
material sense) by their administrators.
Parliament is hankering after gunboats, and
envying you your legacy of tbem from the war.
For years we have been laying down iron-clad
llne-of-battle ships and frigates with a precau
tionary eye to France. Now all danger from
that quarter is past, at least pro tern., and the
ineffective promenades of the French fleet last
autumn have demon-trated tbe necessity of
having lighter vessels, if you, reliable to waatto
Work in shallow waters. "Fifty gunboats in
Stanter !" cries one member;" "a huudred iu
three years !" another; but Mr. Goschen, ex-clty
merchaut, and now First Lord of the Admiralty,
Wisely answers that gunboats there must and
Bhall be as part of our naval stock-in-trade, but
a few other articles as well.
I have been breakfasting with Mundella this
morning. He is very fair of the Importance of
tbe resolution passed last week by the', Trades-
Union Conference in London. And indeed its
Importance can hardly be exaggerated. This
conference.represeuting no less than 700,000 men
members of the various trades uulons all over
the country, has solemnly resolved that, for the
future, recourt-e shall in no case or place be had
to a strike, but that all disputes shall be referred,
as toev arise, to joint delegi Uous of employers
and employed, presided over by an umpire. I
have already told you how happily this plan has
ivr-u'Ud at Dail'mgton, where Tom Hughes was
umpire, and there seems every reasoa to hope
that by its aid the old antagonism between capi
tal and labor mav be finally put to rest.
The higher education of women movement
Is steadily progressing. We shall not for a long
time have anything like your city's Normal
School. Indeed the simple statement that, in
Philadelphia, nearly fifteen hundred women earn
their bread by teaching is received with Incre
dulous astonishment. But courses of lectures
for women are being organized in most of our
. Important towns. Oxford and Cambridge send
examiner far and wide through tae country to
examine girls aqd give certificates of merit, and
In my own alma mater, Cambridge, a house is
to be opened next October for the special ac
commodation of young ladies who may wish to
learn from the lips of enthusiastic graduate of
tbe university. The "6weet girl-graduates with
their golden .hair" of Tenuyson's. "Princess" are
in a fair way to be realized.
Tbe circulation of post-cards has risen to a
million a week, and the stationers are in high
dudgeon, because, forsooth, the Government
supplies writing material (the card) gratis, and
the public buys less letter-yaper In consequence.
I fear they will have to "grin and bear It." The
public having once tasted post-cards, wont
readily forego them.
How gratified the 200 American visitors who,
we are told, lately had the honor of a special
audience and hand-klsslug of the Pope, must
have felt on being assured by his Holiness that
"they had only to descend into their own
hearts, to examine and reflect, and .they would
in the end find out the truth." Perhaps; but
tcfca truth, and bow tnnch of it? '
An ingenious gentleman, one Mr. Alfred Uavl-
land. aided by a grant from the Treasury, has
produced a map showing the geographical dis
tribution of heart disease in England and Wales.
Alter this, of course, before removing to another
r,lthborhocd or taking a lamliy to a waienng
nlaf e. one will anxiously look in Mr. Havlland's
map for the chance of getting or escaping heart
ai,.. thorn. OmniDoteut sUtUtics! Let us
