It will be collected that in the in the month of August 1858, classes were also formed for the cultivation of Music, Debate, and Rectitaion; but I regret to say that one by one they broke up, - a circuimstance in my opinion owing to there being no suitable ac commodation available at all times for the holding of their meetings, consequently members got dis gusted, and after the novelty of pursuing a new path of knowledge had worn away, they ceased their attendance, and as a matter of course the classes fell to the ground. the only exception being the Gymnastic Section, which still continues to be weekly attended by a number of members and as Sergeant-major Goodall, of the R V.?V.

Sultan'slife may not have been really in danger, there was bhe yond doubt a plot to dethronie him, and place his brother in hisseat. To oricntalsovereignsthe'con spiracie'of the palace have always been most fatal A sultan or shah perishes because a wife, or servant, dreads the conquences of some fault, or because a brother too near the throne is ambitious to rest himself on it. It is little more than 60 years ago since Constantinlple itself was thescene of a tragedy of this kind, and even the strong-minded prince who preceded the present Sultan had more than once to be on his guard against similar machinitionii.
