JUDE the OBSCURE Cioth extra. 6s. 20th Tliousand in England. The “Saturday Review” .says:—“There probably never was a novel dealing with the closer relations of men and women that was quite so free from lasciviousness as this. There is n.) otluT novelist alive with the breadth of sympathy, the knowledge, ór the power for the creation of Jude. Had Mr. Hardy never wrltteu another book this would place him at th ■ h. a.t of Englisli novelists. To turn from him orMr. Mereditli to onr Wardour-.treeD romancers and whimpering Scotch humourists is like walking from »library into a schoolroom.” JUDE the OBSCURE " It is in truth a great symbolic poem, a lyric of the sad-nej;s of earth—that in the first place; and, in the second place, a plea in mitigation of mau 4 inhumanity to man aud beast.” — WlLl.IAM AKClIt:«. JUDE the OBSCURE “ The book appears to me one of the true portent« otour time—the most eli.qutsnt. convinced, aud entrancing utter-aiue 01 the unrest, the upheaval, and the gloom oiourstrauge I'.ay.’ —T. P. O'Cu.NNOK, M.P. J UDE THE OBSCURE “ It has not only the solemn and lofty effect of a great tr.igedy; a work far faultier might impart this; but it h«s unity very uncommon in the novel,and especially the English novel.’—W. D. Howklls. g UDE THE OBSCURE “‘Judethe Obscure’is .an irresistible book; itisene of those novels into which we descend and are carried on by a steady iniDetus to the close, when we return, da/;2led, to the light of common day."—Edmund Güssk, JUDE THE OBSCURE ’■ What, a pano'-ama of oneinal scenes and situations!

The libretto is admirable, tho dia-ogue being direct, concise, and natural, yet brimming over with genuine Irish humour; while t lie lyrics have plenty of point an I charm, as well us feeling for rhythmic variety. The reception of ttie work was most enthusiastic, .As far as it IS possible to predict, a ri-al success ia in store tor the new work. Au interesting story, told in dialogue that is bright und to the p .iut, au l music which, while it delights the musician by its relinement, contains nothing that can seeni abstruse to persons of oramary inte lligence, should be enough to attract the attention of the public for some time to come. ay nothing of the geueral excellence of the mounting aud stage mauageuient.”    ______ _ ___ Shamus O BirrEN at opera comique.

Proies.sor Staulord’s work is sure to be scholarly, but in ‘Shamus O’Brien ’ he displays the mucJi rarer quality of'a real feeling for dramatic writing. His score is admirably co hesive. The composer, author, and the chief performers wer. repeatedly recalled.^^__ SH.\MUS O BRIEN at OPERA COMIQUE. Evening News: “A delightful book.

Thi; delightful ‘ Uans«l and Oretel' has led'the way towards the revival. ‘Shamus OBrien' follows, and it would seem successfully. The subject is effective, and Mr. Jessop has got out of it a number of scenes well fitted to hold the house.” SHAMUS O’BRIEN at OPERA COMIQUE. Star:'“Shamus O’Brien’is an excellent opei a. Dr. Stanford has, indeed, given us-someihinequitenew. Thesongsare typically Irish, and well written by the librettist, so that the composer has had every opportunity, and he has done wonders. Perfect as it well could be. as how should it not with Sir Augustus Harris at the helm I-* Heconl i, indeed, have no doubt, from th« manifestations of approval, that at last he has scored a real and unequivocal success for an opera of British birth and origin.” SHAMUS O’BRIEN at OPERA COMIQUE, Sun: “Smoothly and pleasantly written.

Great exciteiaenb existtid in tho streets aud iu the Chambers, Uiir Corro-spondent at Eonie telu-ra*phs tJiat the proba-bilitics point to tho formation ui a Cabinet by the Mavehese Di Kudini, The iSchool Hoard, yesterday, rccc>ired protests from a number of Vestries and Local Boiirds against the increase in tlio School rate. It was resolved to reply that the matter lay withhi the compotonce of the ratepayers. The greater portion of the sittiiiji wa.s devoted to matters arising out oi JMr, liitiiY’.s claim to put questions as to thoir reh^ious belief to candidates for appointment as teachers. The proceedings at the St George's Election inquiry yesterday were again acrnnonious, the line of cross-examination pursued by Mr, Willis evoking repeated protests from the Judges and Coun.sel for Mr. Makk.s. Before tho Court adjourned Mr, Jelp intimated that he had only one or two more ^^'ltnesse3 to call, and he would address the Couirt this morning. Quieter weather prevailed generally over our Islands j'esterday, and the boisterous winds which wero blowing during tho earlier part of tho week had for tho most part subsided. Frost was experienced on the ground over Great Britain on Wednesday night, but temperatures wero fairly higli during the day, fifty dt)grees being touched iu many parts of the Kingdom. The weather was fair in the south and east, but it was not at all settled in tho north and west. The day was fine in London, and the thermo* meter rose to fifty degrees. Mr, Justice Kekewich yesterday gave judgment on a point arising out of the case ia which the Paymaster General had paid over SIX thousand pounds upon documents forged by John Arthur Hales, who had been convicted of the frauds. It was sought to make two solicitors, Mr, John Clear anti his partner, Mr. James Ernest Green, liable for this amount. The Judge pointed out that before Mr. Clkar knew anything of the matter four thousand pounds had been paid out of the bank to someone personating Mr. Joseph M.osi4S Marsh, and to that extent Mr. Clkae was exonerated. Ho would, however, haye to make good so much of the remainder as had been lost, owing to his not having made proper inquirie.s. Mr, Green was acquitted of all moral blame, but the question of his liability as a partner was reserved. The trial, at the Central Criminal Court, oi tho five men charged with frauds in connectioa with a bogus Marriage Agency, came to a close yesterday. It was stated that persons had complained to tho police of having been defrauded by tho Defendants over since 1863. Tho Jury acquitted AIaddows, and were unable to agree in regard to Hen.naji, who was released on bail until tho next Sessions, The other threo being found guilty, Skatus, the ringleader, was sentenced to five years-’ penal servitude ; and Abrahams (whois above seventy years of age) and Mortimer to throe years’ each. The "Norwegian, named Adolph Bkce, who had obtained quantities o£ jewellery from women at tho West-end by fraudulent pretences, was convicted, at tho Central Criminal Court yesterday, aud sentenced to seven years’ penal servitude. At the instance of tho London County Council, John Davies, a dairyman in Park-street, Camden Town, was siimmunetl to Maryle-bone Police-court yesterday for selling milkoa promises whore there had been scarlet fever, but which had not been disinfected. It was stated that two of his daughters having been attacked by the disease, he had been warned not to carry on his business, but ho disregarded the warning. He was lined three pounds lifteen shillings. Call money was plentiful yesterday at^-toj per cent,, and the discount rate for three months’ Bank bills was quoted easier at 13-16 I)er cent. The Stock Markets wero gonerall/ quiet. Foreign Government Securities and American descriptions showed some improvement, but the tone in most other departments Wits dull. Consols declined o-ltj, to 109li-15 o-lG for money, and    § for the account. The foreign gold operations at tho Bank wer» trilling. The Government were fortunate enough last night to bring the preliminary Debate on tha Mavy Estimates to a conclusion, and to get into Committoo before tho House rose, could not reasonably hope to escape an att^k from those who desire an overwlielming Ficet to meet imaginary dangers. I’eirg irrc.spon-sible, and free from all troublesoiuo considerations of ways and means, those critics caii try any moasuro by an impo siblo standard» and prontjunco it inadequate. They ar® not content even though the Government have provided for an outlay of naoro than twenty-one millions on the Navy during tha coming year. With all deference to Sir Chabi<E3 Dilke’s authority anil grasp of his subject, a speech in many ways able and patriotic was vitiated by this argument ftom incorrect premisses. Ho found fault with tho total of mon proposed, because we could not with that number send all our ships to sea, and because wo had no force in reserve to meet the inevitable wastaga of action. He lamented the rapitl disappearance of the British able seaman from our merchant shipping. He was not satibtied with our brilliant performance in tho mobilisation, no only of tho Flying Squadron, but also of a large force of destroyers. He was ^ th;it the French and German system oi mobi.i' sation was far better, though, as he admitte » these Poweis have to deal with a much smaller number of ships. Even if his statement wer^ correct, it doe.^ not condemn our own organi sation, which has to face quite different pr<^ blems. Ho maintained thtit the new programiD^ of construction was inadequate to secure supremacy, overlooking the fact that . spending upwards of seven millions ^ siiips, cruisers, and torpedo-boata-"* ■ far larger than the combined outlay France, llussia, and Germany. with some reason, on the presence of o on board our earlier ironclads, t 0« he must know that on board Frenc hips, also, there are antiqa But when he found fault wi must know that Russian ships, also, weapons.
