No title [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 15 January 1870

It would appear from a letter addressed by Sir James Martin to this morning's Herald, that there is a hitch in the Government arrangement for the new election at Liverpool Plains. We are not going to dispute a point of constitutional law or practice laid down by so eminent a lawyer; but we may fairly premise that Sir James comes before the public in this case under strong suspicion of interested and vindictive motives. The very heading of his letter i- startlingly expressive of this : ' Unconstitutional act of the Earl of Belmore !' Why the announcement seems to assume the form of an indictment, and we can almost conjure up the vision of a solemn trial before the Peers at Westminster, with the possible contigencics of the Tower of London and that grim functionary the headsman. But when we call to mind the little passage of arms in which his Excellency worsted his then principal adviser oh the subject of the proposed dissolution of Parliament, the strong language at the head of the l...

THE STANLEY FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 17 January 1870

THE STANLEY FAMILY. The Stanleys take their title as Earls of Derby, uot from the town or borough of that name in central England, I but from the hundred of Derby in Lancashire. Lord ! Derby, in. common with so many more English noble- | nieu, was a cadet of his house. The senior branch, the I Stanleys of Horton, in Chester, still survives in the i male line in the person of Sir llowknd Erriugton, who ! retains the ancient faith of his family ; he assumed his last name for a fortune. He has two daughters, one of ! whom is the wife of Viscount Polliugton, eldest sou of '; the Earl of Chesborough, but having neither son nor brother, and at liis death the direct senior male line will j become extinct. The branch of the family which formerly held the sovereignty of the Isle of Man, as will be remembered by the reader of ?* Peveril of the 'Peak,' became extinct in the male line early in tho last century, and the heir ess — Viscountess Strange, in herown right — married the eldest son of ...

MONDAY, JANUARY 17, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 17 January 1870

MCiXDAT, JANUARY 17, 1S70. Amongst the very latest of our news from Europe we lmve a published letter from the Rev. Mr. Kirk, dated fr ru Zanzibar, in September la&f, and addressed to Sir R. JIurchisou, with the latest intelligence of the proceedings of Dr. Livingstone, in bis explo rations of the Upper Nile. The subject derives peculiar interest at the present time trom tne fact of the opening of the Suez Canal, and the general attention thus drawn to African exploration aiid discovery. There are some who may be disposed to feel rather weary (if the matter. Dr. Livingstone has been so often killed in the newspapers, and restored to life by the same authorities, that it is not impossible tliat some people may have grave doubts whether there is any such person in existence — whether the sup positious traveller may not be a sort of (jc-ographical Mrs Harris. At the same time, the sources of the Nile have been so often pro- j fnsseily discovered that even tolerably well ] infor...

LORD DERBY AS A SPORTSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 17 January 1870

LOUD DERBY AS A SPORTSMAN. The remains of the Lite Earl ofj Derby were yesterday consigned to their hist resting place in the new church at Knowsley. The proceedings were of a strictly private character, the mourners being confined to the family and those immediately connected with the KnowBley estate. It is not in our province to refer to the political career of the departed statesman —a career which must be well-known to the merest tyro in politics. As a member of the Jockey Club, the late Earl always stood high in the estimation of the sporting community, and as a grouse shooter and deerstalker, we are in a position to assert he was most skilful. We never looked upon his Txirdship .is a foxhuuter, for the simple reason that he was unable to ride well to hound's. His knowledge of tho 'noble science,' however, was very considerable, and whenever he had occasion to speak in the House of Conimous on the sports of the field, when representing either Stockbridge, Preston, Windsor, or L...

EXOTIC TREES AND PLANTS SUITABLE FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 17 January 1870

EXOTIC TEEES AND PLANTS SUITABLE FOR AUSTRALIA. Although Australia is not so deficient in valuable timber trees, nor in rare and beautiful specimens of ornamental plants, as some have asserted, yet the most ardent admirer of the country, as it is, will not feel disposed to deny that in many import ant respects it would be improved by the introduc tion and naturalisation of the best specimens of useful and ornamental trees ol the older continents. Some favoured spots there are, doubtless, through out the difforont colonies wliich are so abundantly provided for by nature in the important matter of timber trees, as to need little more from man than an intelligent supervision and systema tic fostering of the means at hand; but there are immense tracts of country, constituting throe-fourths of tho entire continent at the least, wliich arc either occupied by worthless scrub or are devoid of natural vegetable productions altogether. It is in such places that the hand of the intelligent hus...

XEW BOOKS, to?. Pmii-iissou 1? us co e's lectures mi 'Spectrum Ana lysis,' published by Maemillun and Co., of London, is a valuable contribution to philosophical literature. The book consists of six lectures and an appendix, the hitter containing a vast mass of information on the subject of the lectures. The first lecture is chieflv of an elementary character, and treats of tho action of a prism, the properties ol light, and the conditions under which the spectrum can be produced. The second and third lectures describe the ordinary phenomena of spectrum analysis, and show its extreme delicacy, the 180 milliouth part of a grain of sodium when dillused tlnough any substantial undergoing combustion being distinctly appreciable by means of it. The third lecture also contains an account of the four speetrogenii; metals, namely, thalli'iin. rubidium, cuesium, mid indium, ami nb.j a sketch ol1 the history of spectrum analysis.

NOTICES OF UEOENT COLO-TAt 1 PUBLICATIONS. . i ' Leaves fbom Austualiak Forests,' by Hekrv Ke-vdall.— Wo confess ourselves greatly disappointed in these poems. On opening the work at the dedication, we felt ourselves warranted in expecting that the character of the poems would be in keeping with the good Eensc, manly feeling, and clear diction vchieh pervades that dedication. In this wo wero disappointed. Of the iorty-hve poems which compose the volume there aro not a dozen worthy of being retained in print. There are Bomo beautiful images and forcible expressions scattered throughout tho work ; but they are only to be dis covered by patient and painful research, except in some half-dozen instances. The prevailing style is extremely vicious. Crude, half-formed thoughts are rudely thrust 'before the reader's gaze, and clothed in the most fantastic and insufficient garb of language. It is many years since we read our Horace, and our classical knowledge gene rally is somewhat rusty ; b...
