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)-.
