At home the autumn dinners and the Volunteers divide at-
tention with strikes and murders. Mr: Adderley and Mr. No*. degate in Warwickshire, Sir James Graham in Cumberland, have been making speeches—Mr. Adderley antagenieing Mr. Bright; Mr. Newdegate discovering that protection still survives and Sir James Grahlm amusing his- hearers with destriptions of the wonderful aptitude of Border farmers for agriculture. Sir' Herbert Edwards has appeared at Birmingham as the advocate of Hindoo conversion, by means of the introduction of the Bible- into Government schools. There is something ia the ,statemeat that our policy has not been' frank enough, and that we h'avi3 made the Hindoo suspicious because we have denied our faith in public ants.
The Volunteers are busy all over the kingdom. Reviews and inspections continue to draw forth discriminating praises from the military men. County gatherings are becoming the fashion. Dukes and bishops, as at Oxford, as well as lords and squires,. give warm support. It is very satisfactory, and we hope it will last.
The strike at Nottingham has ended in the surrender of the men to reason ; and the formation of a sort of voluntary Council of Conciliation. -This was the result of a free conference between' the masters-and men. Nottingham, in this respect, bee seta noble example.
The Hehnshore inquiry shows that the accident arose from a deficiency of break power and the bad plan of placing stations at the top of inclines. In our opinion, the accident is also `to bo partly attributed to the neglect of the telegraph.
