Ardglen. FROM A CORRESrONDBlrr. I have not heard anyth:nfr so far as to whether operations in connection with the development of the shale deposits in this district, are any nearer commencement.

Grass it plentiful, bat owing to the con tinued drv weather, it is commencing to get a brownish tinge ; a good day's rain would, therefore, be very acceptable.

The English Inngnase. Will It Become Universal? More people speak English than any other language now in use in the civil ised world, and the increaso in the use of -English is so rapid that it may ulti mately outstrip all the European laji-. guages collectively. At the beginning of the present cen tury twice a.s many people in Knmpe spoke French as English, anil twice as many spoke Gorman as English. More pot-sous in Europe spoke Ualian than Rugllsli, and, in fact, English had a subordinate rank. . One reason of the rapid and general extension of the English language has been that colonisation from (iivat .Ttri tain has .been .very much larger than from other countries, and the English have made their influence felt -more do e'isively than have the 'people, of other nations iii colonies. 'Thus, for' instance, ITolland has- to day extensive' colonies .iii variom* 'parts oft.be world: The-pres'-nt population of Holland is 4.O0rt.O(ln. and of tin- Dutch colonies' 2-1 .000.000.
