Six other trains, starting from other places, are described as conveying no fewer titan 9,000 other pil grims to the shrine of the Virgin.

ENGLISH POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
ENGLISH POLITICS. The whirwind of party politics in Great Britain which raged so furiously a few weeks ago, wrecking the Liberal Party in its course, has been succeeded by a period of unruffled calm. To all appearances by tacit agreement, there is a complete truce between the various contending factions. Burning questions are left to smoulder, and difficult problems are ad journed sine die. One side is satisfied to enjoy its consciousness of overwhelming strength .without making any aggressive demonstration, while the other is busily engaged iii binding up its 'wounds and trying to find some consolation for its defeat. Meanwhile, - instead of the eager haste for domestic legislation which was so pronounced a. short time ago, there is general 'acquiescence in the policy of letting things alone. Of course this is a condition of affairs that cannot continue very long, but the fact that it should have 'arrived' -at all is interest ing as presenting to the gaze Of the world an aspect of ...

PEER AND PEASANT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
PEER AND PEASANT. Anything concerning the British peer — or any other peer, for that matter— is of intense interest in America (remarks the Wcstmimter dazettc). Much has, therefore, of course, been made of the fact that the late Marquis of Exeter was a grandson of tho earl who, in the course of his wander ings, made the acquaintance of a peasant girl whom he wooed and won with out disclosing his identity, the marriage register iu the little Shropshire church of Bolas describing him merely aa 'Henry Cecil.' A woman of singular beauty and of much natural refinement, she had no suspicion that her husband was one of tlie wealthiest and most grandly descended noblemen in the United Kingdom, and the manner iu which he ulti mately disclosed his true station is exquisitely told by Lord Tennyson in his poern 'The Lord of Burleigh.' A much more recent instance of an alliance of this kind, citc-d by an American contemporary, is that of the Karl Of- Mount Cashell, who. tirv-c years ago, althoug...

The locality is said to be about a 'mile and a half from the old Sir Dommick copper mine and not far from the Daly and Stanley mines. In a large lode of copper ore Mr. Frost found a con siderable percentage of native bismuth, and brought down to town some lumps weighing aboutapoundeach; he also found strong traces of gold and silver.

Our Norseman correspondent reports under date of September 19 -.—There . was a great crowd at the Dewdrop Inn on Thursday evening last to hear the opinion of Mr. Fearby, M.E., on the future of this field. Mr. Arthur Austin, of the Austin syndicate, was voted to the chair. Mr. Fearby said he was heart' and soul a miner, having a standing of over 86 years. There was not the slightest doubt that this was a grand field — one that would do credit to the colony for very many years to come. Their lodes were true fissure ones— lodes that would live to great depths. They were sur rounded by great water deposits which added to that value. .There were many lodes which would jjo from 2 to 3 and even 5 oz. to the ton. They were better off for vrater than the more northern fields,, and this nwantmuch. in the working and treatment of stuff. There was one great feature he had noticed while going over the field, and that was the...
