The notorious Campbell divorce case in London has been concluded. The jury found that Lord Colin Campbell had not committed adultery with any of the co-re spondents. The jury added a rider that the conduct of General Butler was unworthy of a gentleman and an officer, and had caused the only difficulty which the jury experi enced in reaching a decision. The an nouncement of the verdict was received with applause. The newspaj»ers in their comments uj>on the Campbell trial express the opinion that although the verdict is un satisfactory, the jury could have come to .no other conclusion, and that this case shows an alteration of divorce proceedings in the direction of “Camera” trials. A Break in the Kuglish Cablcet. London, December 23.—The resig nation of Lord Randolph Churchill from the Cabinet has caused a great sensation. The desire to increase the expenses of the Admiralty and War offices to which Lord Randolph was opj>osed, indicates, it is be lieved, that the Government are of the opin ion that a European war is imminent, and that extra naval and military prei»arations on the part of England are required to make her Influence felt on the Continent. The Queen summoned Lord Randolph Churchill and Lord George Hamilton, First Lord of the Admiralty, to Windsor on Tuesday. Failing to reconcile Ixml Itan dolph to her Cabinet views, the Queen gave him time to consider the j>oints at issue. Lord Salisbury was aware of Lord Ran dolph’s decision yesterday morning, and the matter was whispered at a ball tnat was given at the Hatfield House last evening. Lord Randolph's premature divulgence of his decision to the Times is considered as a breach of faith. Ix>rd Randolph, in an interview to-day. said that his health was better than it had been for months past. His decision tore tire, he said, was the result of due delibera tion, and it arose from no ill temper or weariness of office. He has abandoned his contemplated visit to Ireland. The Cabinet will not meet till next Wed nesday, the Ministers passing Christmas at their country seats. Lord Randolph Church ill authorizes the statement that he will continue to give a general support to the Government, and on disputed questions in Parliament he will hold aloof rather than oppose the Government, avoiding every thing that might tend to jeopardize tente between the Tories ami the Liberals on unionists principles. . It is reported that Lord Salisbnry has re newed his offer of the I*remiership to Ixmi llartington, he himself proposing to take the foreign portfolio, and Lord Hartington to have tile right to select a portion of the Cabinet. The Carlton ami other Conservative club£ are almost deserted owing to the holidays, but the few members remaining give un limited expression to their fury against lx>rd Churchill, stigmatizing him as a traitor who will be forever unworthy of party confidence. The Conservative Asso ciation in Lord Randolph's constituency is arranging for the appointment of a commit tee to call upon Ixml Randolph and demand of him an explanation of his conduct. An informal meeting of the Ghulstonians was held at the National Liberal Club to night, and there was much rejoicing over the prospective break-up of the Conserva tive Unionist coalition, and the hope was expressed of a gradual approachment of the Churchill-Chamberlin alliance to the Giad stonians which will result in the course of the coming session of )tarliament in the re turn of Mr. Gladstone to office. The Standard announces that Lord Ran dolph Churchill in his letter of resignation to Ixml Salisbury gave as the sole reason for resigning his unwillingness to accept the naval and military estimates. Inl«re*ttu( to Dublin. December 21.—The court to-day refused John Dillon’s application for a stay of the order against him to furnish bonds in the sum of £I,OOO, with two sure ties in the sum of £I,OOO, for his future good conduct pending the 'outcome of his appe from the sentence. At the regular fortnightly meeting of the Executive Committee of the Irish National league to-day it was announced that since the last meeting there had been received in donations fjom Ireland #22.000. and from America 996,000. John Dillon said he would continue to carry out “the plan of the cam paign” in defiance of the Government No body, he said, has the right to say that “the plan of campaign” is illegal until a jury has decided on the facts. Mr. Dillon also said the leaders in this movement desire to bene fit the tenants in Ireland without the assist ance of the “Moonlighters.” The tenants of the Duke of Leinster, in County Kildare, met again and modified their demand for a reduction in rent, ask ing now for instead of 35 per cent. The tenants also joined in the request of the Duke’s tenants at A thy, that they be given the benefit of the purchase clauses in the land act. The friends of Mr. Parnell sny.his illness has been of a very serious nature for sever al weeks, and he is in a dangerous condi tion. When he is able to actively resume work he will convene the Irish Parliamen tary party in the council chambers of the Dublin corporation. Three farms belonging to Mr. Parnell’s brother John were sold at auction to-day in Armagh for 50 per cent, less than they were valued at three months ago. In the ease of the persons who were ac cused of assault ing the bailiffs on the Claur learde estate at Woodford, the jury at the Connaught Assizes yesterday found that the prisoners had committed an assault, but several of the jurymen considered that the assault was justifiable. The counsel for the prisoners submitted that no verdict had been found. The Judge directed the jury to again retin*, and when they returned they announced a verdict of guilty, but they expressed the belief that the prison ers had the right to defend a neighbor's home, and had acted m ignorance of the law. i'he Judge entered a verdict of guilt)-.
