The Naglish Diplomatic Service.
Earl RussuU has recently issued new reg
ulations for the government of attaches in
the British diplomatic service, which show
with what care foreign diplomatists are
trained, in contrast with the inattention to
the whole subject which prevails here. For
instance, all candidates for entrance into the
service are obliged to undergo examination
—they bing at that time between twenty
one and twenty-six years. The candidate
,s to satisfy his examiners that he has a
good knowledge of the Latin language. I1M
must have "an accurate knowledge of French
grammar, fluency in French conversation,
correctness of translation from French into
English and from Knglish into French, and
French composition." He must sbow, also,
a like proficiency in the German tongue.—
He must exhibit a fair knowledge of the
political history of Europe, and or North
and South America, from the year 1850 to
1660, inclusive, and of the most important
international transaction duriag that period,"
and also, a general knowledge oi maritime
international law, to be acquired from
Wheaton'a Elements of International Law,
and the first volume of Kent's Commentary."
The selection of two American books in this
department is significant. But in addition
to these branches, tbe candidate is also to
be examined in geography, geometry, arith
