EARL SALISBURY'S MANI FESTO. LONDON, Jane 27. ] Earl Salisbury's manifesto recog nises the mouientons interest felt in the diminution of poverty and the prevention of ruinous disputes in trade. He promises amendments in tbePoor Law, and protection to the lives and health of the industrial commu nity, and eays no party can refuse the latter, but the unanimous wish of the working classes at the present election is to decide whether Parliament is to grapple immediately with these ques tions or devote the whole time to the discussion of Ireland.

ID. the N^orth American Review (pub lished in England by Brentano'e, Agar-sfcreet, Strand) for May, Lady Jenne has ail exceedingly outspoken article on London Society. As her ladyship is herself a prominent figure in Society, her observations will he read with considerable interest. " THE SMARTEST PEOPLE."
