This- was, of ooursa, in allusion to the claims set up- by. the''American Government, arising out of the-damage done to the commerce of the United States by the Alabama; and although Lord Dirbj did not say so, it is a fact that a Royal Commission is'tobe appointed for the purpose, if possible, oL settling those claims. This commission, it is understood, will be presided over by Mr. Harcourt, an eminent lawyer, whose letters in the Timu � ander the signature of "Bistoricus" attracted so mash attention while.the war was going on in America. The other members of the commission are to be selected on account, not of their politics, but with regard to their eminenoe and still in the profession;, so that if the Government of the "United States is gnid. Iff all the reports 1 hear are well founded, a good many changes are contemplated. In the first place, it is said that Chief Justice Erie is about to retire from the Common Pleas, after a Tudldal" service ol twenty-two years. In all probability he will be succeeded by the Solicitor-hat the charges might be preferred against Wright, and the others for committal. Mr. Lindas, of Cheapside, appeared for the proseon-t'^B, and said he had another eharge is prefer against the prisoner Wright for stealing aoare ailk from Messrs, Lewis and AUenby's, and he believed there was another, oharge against him for stealing silk at another auk mercer's. Mr. Henry Smith, assistant to Messrs. Iiswii and Allenby, silk mercers, Esgent-Btreet, said that on the .,0th September, the prisoner Wright came into the shop and asked for some pat terns of green silk, stating that they were required for millinery purposes. Ihe prisoner had with him a small deal box. Ho gave the patterns to the prisoner, and he then asked for some patterns of black velvet, and he (witness) left fos the purpose of procuring them, and returned with them, and then the prUsnsr asked for some patterns of green velvet. He got them, and gave them to the prisoner, and the prisoner, without comparing them with any other pieees, said, "These will do," and left the shop in a hurried manner. In answer to Mr. Lindas, the-witness Baid he had seen the prisoner once before in the shop, and he then had a similar box with him. Mr. Bowman, assistant to Messrs. Lewis and Allonby, said that on the day in question be was serving a young female with some drab silk-there being no other person bnt the female and the prisoner present-and about two minutes after serving the female, and she had left, he found the prisoner had left, and a piece of silk missing, the piece measuring 30 yards, and being of the value of �10. The prisoner cross-examined the witnesses at some length, but the only effect of his cross-examination was to strengthen tho case against him. The prisoner was tion oharged with stealing 96 yards of silk, of the value of �10 17a., from the shop of Mr. Obed Roberts, silk mercer, of Tottenham-court-road. Eliza-Phillips, shop worn an to Mr. Boberts, said that ontne2Gthof October, prisoner, cam* into the shop and asked tor some muaus, with whioh he was served, and for which he paid, and left in a very hurried manner, and directly afterwards she missed 96 yards of silk, of the value of �10 17s., the prisoner having a box with him at the time he wo,i in the shop. The prisoner was committed fer trial on the three oharges of stealisg silk, and the other prisoners were committed for receiving silk ia Messrs. Grant and Gaak's ca?e. It was stated that there were several other oharges against Wright, but they were not gone into.

Altogether the work is an elaborate and well-executed one! audi will form a valuable and pleasing sonvenir of the Working Classes' Industrial Exhibition of 1866, to all who have participated in it as competitors. It is intended that these, as well as the prizes, shall be presented at a great meeting, to be field at Ureter-hall in January sext, to be presided over, if possible, either by'.thi Earl of Derby or some other distinguished nobleman. The Closing Ceremony. Lord John Manners, MP., her Majesty's Chief Commissioner of Publlo Works, presided over the olosing ceremony. Among those who occupied seats upon tha platform were the following:-Lieut-Colonel Stuair WortleyjMr. George Crmkahank, Mr. W. J. Barlow, Mr. H. Walker, B�v. T.

Charles Boutell, MA., first read the report of the adjudicators. � Tha folio wing report of the oonnoil as to the open -tions and progress of the exhibition from its 00m menoament and throughout its career, was then read by Mr. Watte, the hon. secretary of the committee iXTRAORDINA RY SUICIDE OF A WEALTHY JEIWESB. Dr. Lackester held an inquest on Tuesday afternoon A the Gower Arms, Gower-atreet, on the.body of Julia Levy, who oommltted suicide by jumping from the saoond-floor window of No. S7, Alfred-plaoe, Bedford-sqoare. The unfortunate deceased was suffering from a disease of the uterus, whioh excited her moat fearfully at times, and afterwards left her entirely prostrated. Mr. Field, solicitor, appeared on behalf of tha friends of the deoeaaed, and endeavoured to show that shomet with her death accidentally. Mr. Edward Jealen, of 49, Gordon-square, son-in-law of deoeaaed, said she was G6 years of age. Her husband, Abraham Levy, had rotirsd from busines 1 many years before his death. She had lately been suffering severely from a certain disease whioh caused bar excessive nervous excitement. She appeared very forgetful at times, and the fact of her having the disease preyed npon her mind. Catharine Chambers, who had aoted as curse to the deoeaaed, said the deceased was sometimes mentally affeoted through her disease. On Monday morning last witness left deceased in the front bedroom, and shortly afterwards she heard screaming in the street and house,. and was told that deceased-bad jumped out of the window. The latter had of ton after her fits gone to the window and opened it, because she was so hot. She did so on this occasion before witness left her. She had received instructions to watoh her, but ^ot too olosely, as it distressed her. By Jurors: Deoeaaed opened the window herself, but witness did not think she was going to commit suicide. farther evidence having been given as to the illness. of de leases'. Thomas Walters, of 27, Judd-street, Euston-road,, said he was passing along Alfred-plaoe the previous morning, when he saw deceased Jrat one leg out of the window, and immediately afterwards the other. She hung by her hands for a second, and then dropped into the area beneath. He raised a ahout, and, rushing across the road, jumped down the area, andwith tha assistance of another man carried her upstairs.. She breathed once or twice after he picked hex np. He did not think she could have fallen ont of the window accidentally, she oame out so deliberately. Charles Edwards, a oabdriver, corroborated last witness. Dr. B. Aroedeekne Duncan said he was called to -j deceased early on Monday morning. He was told she had thrown herself from the second-floor window. Ha found bet arm was fractured in several places near the elbow. There was a out on her foot as if from glass. He believed her neck was broken, and her head was fractured. She died from fracture, of the skull. The Coroner having summed np, the jury returned a unanimooj verdiot of " Suicide whilst of unsound mind,'* A Counterfeit. Suicide.-On one of the Paris quays, last week, about dusk, a man was observed to be gesticulating m a strange manner, whan all at ones he threw himself into the river. Two boatmen immediately put off to his assistance, and npon bringing him to land, asked him what induced him to attempt suioide. He replied that he had not any such intention, that he was an exsallent swimmer, bat thstb* had not a son, and if they were good fellows they would share with him the reward allowed for saving a man's life. They indignantly refused, and handed him over to the pelloe. The reward, 25f., was offered to them all the same, bnt they declined it, strt, wishing to share, even mdirectly, in this new speojea of swindling. The Beport. " Oh the 3rd of September last the Metropolitan and Provincial Industrial Exhibition was {ormsHy opened by B. Culling Hanbury, Eaq., on whioh occasion the executive oouuoil detailed theoiraunutanaes attending its origin,.and gave an outline of their proapeotivaarrangements. They then ventured to express'a hope that the undertaking would realise their idea of a workmen's festival, and would become a means of rational recreation te the working population of the metropolis. After a period of 10 weeks we are met together te hear the result of the undertaking, and the oonnoilhave muoh pleasure in reoarding its complete ssooeas. "It may be-interesting to note the fact that this success has been achieved despite many serious diffi-icultiea, and that various oiroamstanoes have combined to make the duties of the council more than usually onerous, and their responsibility a source of anxiety. After they had commenced operations last year several schemes of a like oharacter proved failures, and the guarantors were called npon to defray the losses. This naturally prevented the ootmoil being able to raise a guarantee fund sufficiently large for so extensive an undertaking. Then, with reference to exhibitors, many persons who would otherwise Bare applied for space declined to send their productions, having been disappointed at the failure ot other exhibitions ; besides whioh, several of the best friends and supporters of the former enccesafal exhibition in this hall abstained from again extending their patronage, owing to their oon&denae being shaken. In illustration of this faot the following reply to an application from the oonnoil was returned by a member of Parliament well known as taking a deep interest in the welfare of the working classes. 'In oanseqaesoa of the receipt of your second letter I called on my friend Mr.-. His opinion, whioh Ioonfesa I ebara-is that the exhibitions of the nature you wish to engage in have for the present been overdone, and that the one you propose cannot succeed. His advice, therefore, to me is not to give my name aa a guarantor.' "Sinoe the opening of the exhibition about 550,000 persons have entered the bnilding, and of these upwards of half a million have paid for admission. Of children admitted free there have been 3,092 belonging to the Sunday schools, 401 to the parochial schools, 3,992 to the ragged schools, and 1,559 toother schools, The musical programme has included the following entertainments:-Six concerts organised and superintended by the Tonic Sol-fa Association; the number of singers at eaoh of these was from 500 to 1,G00, under the obis leadership of Mr. Sari, Mr. Proudman, and Mr. Dobson. Eight conoerta of 1,000 voices each by the choirs of the Band of Hope Union, the conductor being Mr. Hosier. Four oratorio performances by the Tonio Sol-fa Choral Society, with fall band and jhorus, oonduoted by Mr. Gardner. Three morning conoerta by Miss Mabel Brest. Two miscellaneous ooncarta by Mr. Daviea, one by Mr. Beeves, and one by the North-Weat London Choral Society. Three concerts by tha Tgnglinh Glee Union, and two by the Quaver-Glee Union, and several gratuitous lectures have been delivered. "There-has been held a flower show, at whioh �23 was. distributed in money aa prizes, and a bazaar for tiie .benefit of a ragged sohooL On one evening the BobertBaikes Lifeboat was publicly presented to the Lifeboat Institution in the presence of the children subscribers to the fund, and the Bagged School prizes were distributed also in this building. Besides these vents there. haw been frequent organ performances by Mr. O. F. Daviea, and numerous instrumental concerts by the Sonj-Euphonio Union, Mr. Long, and Miss Ada Mathews, with occasional performances by volunteer, polios, and.araateur bands. To the gentlemen and ladies who have contributed their services by taking, part in. tha entertainments the oonnoil lug to tender their hearty thanks. Although the oonnoil are in a position to meet-their estimated liabilities, besides expending the sum of �800 np&n prize medals, oerti-fioatos^and mementoes for exhibitors, ii must be borne in mind that a large proportion of tha labour bestowed on the undertaking has been rendered gratuitously, and that tha singers,mntim'aiis, lecturer', agents, and others haxe*, in, most cases, tendered their services without ren^uneration. By the Bpirit of co-operation the WOT&r^'olaaBes have been enabled to obtain rational amrMsssuat'Ond profitable recreation at a " TnLt^,njfy�flamttnt of the exhibition the council have beefl eapjei^fly deairou3 of satisfying the reasonable e�^taaoris of the exhibitors. To award the prizes th^ostacrted the assistance of gentlemen well qualified to daoida apen the merits of the articles, ana the adjndioatnra' report has just been laid before yon. It may be stated that the doty fulfilled by these gentlemen has been an extremely difficult ono; and the oounoil beg to tender their grateful acknowledgments far the impartial and painstaking manner in whioh it has- been - eondncted. There has been awarded special prizes in money to a considerable amount, 81 silver medals, 175 bronze medals, and 185 certificates of honourable mention, soaking a total of 441 exhibltorsont of 1,455 who have received marks of merit. For the especial benefit of the exhibitors an Art and Industrial Union was instituted, and by this and other facilities afforded for tho disposal of goods belonging to exhibitors, upwards of �300 worth have been sold.. Besides these advantages, the exhibitors have been admitted free at all times to the exhibition and entertainments; and each one will be presented with a handsome framed picture when the prizes are distributed in January sext. To please all ia a matter of impoeaiblity, but the oounoil venture to hope that at least the majority of the exhibitors will be satisfied with the result of their connection with the under- hall, Leeds, was then performed thousand voices. choir of THB|ESBOTEH)NS n^BOUMANIA. p.

Twenty thousand-were so distributed.

I cannot help thinking that the working' men will find their best: ideas of beauty-in the study of: those plants.- It. is- said that that whioh. given the> French, army: a certain, alertness audi vivacity unknown to other European troops is the habit each soldier has in time of' peace of exermsmghv faculties and using his hands in other occupations than those-of war J emd so I cannot doubt that the individuals who oompose the vast army of British, workmen most eaoh: in his own. trada benefit by exercising his brain and using hia fingexB in hours of idleness or rest in snoh ways and works as are here displayed before us, in which for tiie first time provincial as well as-metropoiitan workmen have contri-" bated, and in winch some of the moat- meritorious objects have* coma from soma of the provincial towns. I would also rank very highly the interest this, exhibition has gjven to the eojial circle. Apart from and above considerations of gain to the oanse of British art and the improvement of individdal skill we may reflect with thankfulness and satisfaction on the increased zsst whioh exhibitions- of this kind give to the domestic hearth and family circle* Picture to yourselves in the long winter nights the father, the husband, brother; or son, cheerily at work upon his labour of love with his children, wife, sister, or parents, fondly and proudly watching over ika growth, -and thinking of- the place it shall till in soma noble hall like this. _ Nor does the interest stop there. Mark howthe little artiole proves a unit in the great whole which tens and hundreds of thousands- have crowded to see-curious, interested, admiring; and see also how tiie charms of music and the knowledge to be acquired from leotures and other means of instruction have sprung around these products of working men's ingenuity and labour. See, too, how this working men's exhibition has interested and delighted men and women of all olaases, has become one tie the more between the various branches or grades of our metropolitan community. I see in it one lnaj.t^tl,n �Vilitnnri of imprisonment fer debt, the amendment of the laws on the detention ef prisoners while under accusation, the extradition laws, and the removal of the restrio-Ltionaomthe.manufacture of articles of gold andisuver. , His Maje^yjillo announced the oorolnsicm of a treaty of amity with Japan. In reference to the raoent rifle meeting at Brussels; he said:-" TheTirNational has furnished tiie Belgian militia with an, opportunity of fraternising with-the militia of neighbouring countries. Belgium will be happy to see renewed on her soil those peaceful contests, in whioh axe engendered relations of mutual friendfhip-and esteem, which the future can butextend and fortify." His Majesty concluded his speech as follows:-"To accomplish tiie tasks ef Government Ineed thei loyal concurrence of theChamber.

These rights are relinquished by the State withon: indemnity; the v.vioas landowners, however, will receive compensation for thaloas of their privileges. It is computed that more than 400,000 oitizens and peaaanbs, the latter having their Tendance within the district of the towns referred to, will thus became proprietors of their estates in consideration of the payment of the necessary indemnities. MS. GLADSTONE'S INTERVIEW. WITH THE POPE. The Corriere Italiano profeeseB to have received from a person worthy of credit the following account of the interview between Pius IX and Mr. Gladstone: Mr. Gladstone found the Pops as calm as possible. Politics were not mentioned until the end of the conversation, and it waa Mr. Gladstone who took the initiative. The Pope oomplaiced of the Austrian Government, while folly admitting that events in Germany had put it out of the power of that Government to defend the Holy See, and almost justified its conduct Mr. Gladstone congratulated the Pope os the arrival at Borne of the Antibes Legion. On this the Pope said: "Terrestrial legions hare t're defect of often failing of the end they desire tu attain. Moreover, what matters it to me what shall happen ? Best assured that when the French are gone I shall not be less protected, eeeing that the legions whioh defend the Churoh never fall." In saying that, the Pope raised his eyes to Heaven. Mr. Gladstone wished to speak of Italy, and he asked what truth there micht be in the preliminaries of negotiations with the Government of Florence mentioned in the journals. This is the Pope's reply: "I do not read tho journals; I know nothing in that respect; I am ignorant of everything. All I know is that in dying I shall not leave entire to my successor the sacred and inviolable inheritance of St. Pe'er." The conversation on Italy having ceased, the Churoh in Ireland was spoken of, and the Pope warmly commended to Mr. Gladstone his well-beloved flock. Then smiling, he added: " If one of these days I Bhould have ta leave Rome, although Irelandia far from the centre of Christianity, I should not object perhaps, to choose it for my domicile. Malta, a place almost entirely mercantile, now that the revolutionaries accuse my poor priests of simony, would not have my sympathies." Be said, in conclusion, that he would go where Providence-mighty and never failing to judge men who are sot eternal-should wish. In saying these words the Pope seemed much moved. The following prayer is now being used at Borne, the Pope having acrorded to those who use it a hundred days' indulgence :- PRAYBB fob THE PRESENT CAtAMTTIBS op THB CBUBCH. Sweetest Jesus, our Divine Master, who ever baffiast the perverse machinations of the Pharisees, who lead ns into snares, bring to nought the counsels of the impious, and of all those who, abasing human weakness seek with their false arguments to ensnare Thy people-enlighten Thy disciples with the light of Thy grace, in order that they may not be corrupted by the cunning of those wise men according to the present generation, who spread everywhere their pernicious sophistries in order that we may fall into their errors. Grant us the light of faith, that we may recognise the snares of impious men, that we may remain firm believers in the dogmas of tha Church, �id may ever reject the falsehoods of the deceivers. MABBIAGE OF THE CZ IBS WITCH, st. pETEBSBtTBG, Nov. 9. The marriage of the Czuoxitch with the Princess Dagmar of Denmark wa� oelebrated to-day at noon. The event was announced by salvos of artillery.

The Boston Espnbiioans have nominated two negroes as candidates for the legislature.
