wo Chronicle Government has decided iu convene Parlia ment on Xovember IStli a week earlier than it was expected that the session would begin This step was decided upon at a conference in which Lord Salisbury Mr Smith and Mr Goschen took part Their meeting was a sort of informal Cabinet council at which several things were decided in refer ence to the session It wis agreed that the Ministers should limit tho leading bills of the session to tho Land and Tithes bills A more dlfllcult matter to determine was the new form of address in reply to the speech from the thruiie the Government policy being to prepare it in such a manner as to evaduaiiy amendments to it by the op position the devico being that the Conserv tivus shall simply hear and approve it The reply will thurufore take thu baldest shape of a simple voto of thanks to tho Queen with the assurance of a dutiful spirit on the part of the llouHi of Commons ftlr Kmiih looks vory well indeed and is1 evidently in the bust of health This dispels all idtH of his retirement to the House of Lords until the dissolution of this Parlia ment The distress In Ireland will be tho pivot of all debate in Parliament The Govern ment is anxious to possess itself of proper information on the subject of tho famine aud its elToct instead of tho garbled accounts which have been furnished it thus far and has therefore again sent Mr Jack son to make a tour of the districts which have been alVeoted by the potato blight Tho somewhat exaggerated alarmist re ports on tho one hand and Mr laoksons previous trivial treatmentof the local lunger of starvation have left tlTc Cvovorn munt and public really in Ignorance of the true state of aiVairi Mr Jackson will this Mine bo accompanied by an expert who knows something of the country and its Comparative condition and immediate out look and we may expect an account which will come a iroort dual nearer the facts than any which has yet come to hand in tho meantime a letter has been written by I Tuke who is the leading authority on tho blights of 1840 and which is accepted us an expert aud impar tial review of the situation Tit is appears to prove that the lively alarm concerning the condition of tho people which has been full and proclaimed by tho Nationalists and their frionds was somewhat premature DP Tuko denies that thero is any danger of famine any where lu Ireland Ho says that the area over which thu serious failure of crops extends is limited to some western places and is less extensive than the crop failure Of 1879 Lie further states that the people in the areas which aro in the worst plight are better ablo to bear their losses in consequence of the potato blight than they woreat that time because the pHoe of stock is high now and tho crop of oats Is good so that genonilly thero is less de pendence upon the potato crop than was formerly Dr Tukes statement does not remove1 the fooling that considerable relief will bo necessary during the winter to pre vent real suffering but it places the neces sity of tho peasantry In a more rational light and affords a goriuino and safe ground for estimating tho real case aside from the exaggerations of tho Tories Mr Nonnikev Hen ton has Just returned from his visit to America and is now en gaged in making a draft of a letter to be so fit to the Marquis of Salisbury which em bodies the results of inquiries made in

American coast near Now York if possible Mr Bonynge was soon nt his home in Princess Gate He said I am one of the people Interested and t have paid up 000 The cable however will practically bo a private enterprise as we will not go to the public with debentures We can lay the cable complete and in working order for and it will be odd if wo cannot pay big dividends and give the public immense advantages besides Further than this I prefer to say It is thought that the real object of this enterprise is a reduction of the cable rates Those interested say that satisfaction can be given and good service carried ou at the rate of three pence a word and a large dividend paid into tho bargain Mr Bo ny nge will sail for New York by the Teu tonic on the 20th to make the American arrangements

Me declared upon his honor as a trontleman that tho reason for his duels was a family one of the gravest importance and should never be made public The true inwardness of tho affair is now made public Lieutenant Woinert is an Alsatian aged 27 He is considered a bravo Gfiicei aud served with marked distinction in Tonquin He is handsomoand has always been a favorite among hiscomrades In May last he disappeared and for three mouths thero was no trace of him and no messages came from him to indicate his whereabouts At tho end of that time it was learned thai Weinort was then and had been at home with his parents at Schles stadt in Alsace When this discovery was made tho French papers almost unanimously condemned him as a deserter to Germany and went so far as to say that he had sold charts of tbe de fenses of Toulon to the enemy His friends were naturally aghast ab the charge siuco death alone would be his punishment if ho were caught As soon as Weiriert saw the attacks on him ho made up his mind not to delay but to return and face the music with wbat resultjjhas been already told Now comes tho Jove part of the story Some time ago Wcinert loved a beautiful girl who returned his affection and a mar riage was arranged between them but the villain of Lbe drama made his appearance iu the usual style This one was an Italian Prince and he soon began to pay court to the Lieutenants beautiful fiance She was fascinated by the Italians mannersand title Weinort would not give her up with out a struggle He warned her of her peril and threatened the Prince if anything happened to the girl Upon this tho Prince sent chal lenge to the young Lieutenant who accepted it The meeting took in tho hitters garden and the weapons chosen were swords After sonie passes Wcinert ran the Prince through the body and he was carried off unconscious and died soon afterwards To avenge his friends death one of the Princes seconds sent Weinert another chal lenge which too was accepted The scene was the same spot in tbo garden where tho former duel had taken plate In this en counter however Lieutenant Weinert was silently wounded but his opponent suffered as seriously as his royal friend aud like him was carried oir the field unconscious and it is believed has since died These aro the facts that led to the Lieutenants flight for on hearing of the tragic result of his action ho became fearful
