An Eastern Subject.-Wapping seems a most unlikely place for a person of studious habits to select as a retreat. Yet, amongst the pictures in the International Exhibition at Kensington we find "A Study at Wapping." The Sugar Duties.-Lady Customer (with her Grocer's book.) " You know, Mr. Sweepins, the Chancellor of the Exchequer takes off half the Sugar Duty." Grocer. " Yes, 'M, he does; and you will see that we have not yet charged you anything extra in consequence !" Rather Awkward !-"Well, and how's tho beauty, Mrs. Jessamy? As lovely as ever?"

The sight of a wholesome houest Union of Workmen, for putting down the hireling, agitators who live by causing Strikes. The sight of our brand-new silk umbrella which was taken by mistake (of course) for a very old alpaca one we found .left in exchange, for it. The sight of a new form of Constitutional French Government, founded cm eternal principles, and capable of enduring for upwards of a twelvemonth. The sight of our own butcher's bill, with steaks and legs of mutton charged at the same price as when we began housekeeping. And, finally, a "sight of money" paid by some good fairy of the future to free us all from Income-tax. (From Fun.) The Real Central Asian Question.-"Khan-you-for-Khiva?" Remarkable Loquacity.-The papers tell us of the death of Mrs. Martha Dix, at the age of 103. According, to the paragraph which describes her funeral, she was able "to speak of exciting events which had occurred along the coast some 60 or 80 years ago." Such loquacity at such a time is almost as remarkable as that of Charles: I., who is said to have " walked and talked " under somewhat similar circumstances. for the do what same for He had; {From Judy.

A Berlin correspondent, writing on the 21sfc, says -"Yesterday the marriage of Prince Albrecht of Prussia, a son of the late Prince Albrecht and nephew of the Emperor, with the Princess Marie of Saxe-Altenburg, was celebrated with rather more than the usual pomp. The Prince having, it is believed, been induced by certain unhappy circumstances affecting the married lite of !b% parents, to postpone his own marriage for some time, the Emperor, with the considerate regard^ for the feelings of his relatives which has always distinguished himV determined to honour the occasion, with his choicest favours. The entrance of the Princess into the city^ which was made a few hours before the wedding, was in the grandest style of the Berlin Court. ''.'Dragoon. Guards opened tho procession. Half-a-dozen magnificent carriages containing the chief dignitaries of the Court, and accompanied by gorgeous attendants, followed.. Then came the State carriage of the Royal Family, which is best described as a house on wheels, all gilt, and surmounted by helmet and crown. Surrounded by Chamberlains and f/arde-du-corps, and drawn by eight horses of the finest East Prussian breed, thji equipage presented a superb appearance, and was greeted with tho boisterious applause of the public. Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess and her Hi^hriess^lps Princess of Altenburg, with the Mittresa of the Robei '#f the young bride, occupied the interior of the stupendous vehicle, the exterior being crowded with pages ahd other functionaries of appropriate rank and degree. Just inside tho Brandonburg Gate the procession stopped to give the Burgomaster of the capital time to deliver a short and cordial address to the bride, whose girlish beauty and modest, unpretending demeanour at once captivated the hearts of the multitude. After a few words of thankB from the bride in reply, the cavalcade moved on to the old Palace, where the Crown Prince and Prince Albrecht received the two Royal ladies at the portal of the Inner Cour^. Having been presented to the Emperor and Empress, who were waiting for her in the Brandenburg Chambers, the bride withdrew to the suite of apartments provided for her, to make her appearance again a few hours later, when the time for the wedding had arrived. The ceremony was performed in the Palace Chapel at seven o'clock p.m., in the presence of the Emperor and Empress, the Duke and Duchess of Saxe-Altenburg, and all the members of the two Royal and Princely families." Mr. Jerom Murch, of Bath, has expressed his .willingness to come forward as a Liberal candidate for v the representation of that city, provided that the party is ^united in his support. � i.The Essex and Suffolk Farmers' Association : haive refused to employ men belonging to the Agricul-f tural Labourers' Union, and all unionists are to be dismissed with a week's notice. Certain members of the Common Council of Lon-, don have determined to impress upon the corporation the expediency of inviting the Shah of Persia to allow him-self to be publicly received at the Guildhall on the occasion :;; of his visit to England. The Governors of Wellington College have i elected the Rev. E. C. Wickham, Fellow and Tutor of New College, Oxford, to the Head Mastership, in succes-'. sion to Dr. 'Benson, who has been appointed Chancellor ;. of Lincoln Cathedral, and will retire from Wellington College at the end of the present Term. The Painters' Company of the City of London have announced that they have arranged for lectures advancing Technical Education in the painting trade, and that on the 15th of next month a lecture on "Colour," addressed to operative painters, will be delivered by Mr. J. Gregory Grace. Being desirous of promoting the study of art among house-painters, the Qompany have proposed to offer prizes, ranging from �2 to �6, in the following subjects:--Decorative painting, painting from natural foliage or flowers, free-hand drawing and design, and marbling and graining. .' A correspondent at Bermuda, writing on the 3rd inst., says that the Royal Alfred (flatjship on the North American station), which went on shore on passing St. George's, has sustained more damage than was at first anticipated. It is reported that the whole of her false . keel, as well as a portion of the main keel, andherbilge- Sieces have been injured. She will be placed in the oating dock in the course of a few days, or so soon as the repairs to the Minstrel gunboat have been completed. The Racoon,; on arrival from Vigo, landed thirty cases of typhoid fever at the naval depot, Ireland Island. The who^e are progressing favourably. She has left again to join the flying squadron, expected to rendezvous in the West Indies. The�Brown v. Brown and Crellin Divorce Case.-On Wednesday, in the Divorce Court, before Sir J. Hannen, an application in the case of Brown v. Brown and Crellin was made by Mr. R. A. Pritchard as to the-mode of trial. It is the case of the actor who recently figured in a prosecution for stealing the jewellery of. the husband, and an order was made for the case to be tried by a common jury, at the instance of the respondent. Those Three Rules !-The London correspondent of the New York World, writing on March 22nd, exclaims :-" Oh dear! Oh dear! Shall we never hear the last of that wretched Treaty of Washington and its unhappy ' three rules' by which, hereafter, the rights and duties of neutrals in case of war are to be measured. Last night Parliament once more discussed the question of what these ' three rules ' really meant. The debate occupied only six hours'; the report of it in to-day's Times fills only fifteen columns of that lively sheet. Happily, from these bushels of chaff one may, without much difficulty, thrash out the few kernels of wheat which they contained." American Views of Shipping.-The New York Times contains the following remarks on Mr. Plimsoll and his work :-" Mr. Plimsoll, the member of the English House of Commons who has begun a crusade against tho'men who send uriseaworthy ships to sea, is devoting himself with great energy to his cause, and will probably accomplish'much good. He has already prevented one rotten ship from Bailing, and recently addressed an immense meeting at Exeter Hall upon the Bubject of the reckless and selfish conduct of unprincipled shipowners. It is to be hoped that he will endeavour to have a stop put to the practice of building ships of a disproportionate length, and to compel the owners of iron passenger steamers to build them �with a double skin. The senior partner of the Cunard Company has written a letter to the Earl of Shaftesbury, waraily indorsing Mr. Plimsoll's course, but the owners of the White Star line have not yet expressed their views upon the matter." The Times says :-We have much pleasure in announcing that Count Munster will succeed the late respected Count Bernstorff as German Ambassador at the Court of St. James's. C^unt Munster married, as his second wife, the Lady Harriette St. Clair, sister of the present Earl of Roaalyn, and has been long and favourably known in tbi* country as a man of great and varied accomplishments. mated and Published for thelProv^^^t JohnBankings* �* rra�4* London. ;
