on the Eider. This river takes its source in a small lake at about ten
miles from Kiel. It traverses several other lakes, and among them
the Weston-See and Fiembourde-See, directs its course to the west near
Kluvensick, washes Rendsburg, forms the northern boundary of the
German duchies, and falls into the Northern Ocean near Tiinningen,
after a course of about ixty miles. T he Eider being navigable from
Rendsburg, as the Danish gunboats can render great service after the
frost disappears. Holstein having been evacuated, and Slesvig alone
being at present menaced, the Danes have assembled all their means
of defence there. The country is marshy, and contains numerous
lakes and running streams. It is traversed by a continuous fortification
called the Dannewerk, raised in 1840 and reconstructed some years
since. This fortification may be rendered of great service for the
defence of the country.

According to the last census, which document served as the basis for

the establishment of the number of deputies fixed by the Constitution of the 18th of November last (the cause of the present difference), the population of Denmark, including the Faroe Islands, amounts to 2,235,000 inhabitants. Its superficies is 36,000 square miles. The population of Holstein amounts to 397,000, and the two duchies united to 775,000. Should Denmark lose the two duchies her population would be reduced to less than 2,000,000.

carry out the resolution of the Diet; with regard to the second,
Austria was acting unconstitutionally in expending sums without the
consent of both Houses of the Roichsrntb. The regretable policy pur-
sued by the Government incurred the danger of losing all German

sympathies, if, indeed, they were not already lost. While the state of

the finances demanded great care, the Government had adopted a policy which, if leading to war. would consume all available means. Count Rechberg should either confirm or contradict the rumour current to-day of England and France having protested against the pas

- sage of the Eider. Austria intended to uphold the London protocol, but such a course could not be sanctioned. For this reason, the finance committee recommended the resolution by:which the House declined responsibility for the policy of the Government. The commissioner of the Government defended its point of view upon the same grounds as on former occasions. Nineteen speakers are on the list of members intending to address the House. It is, however, expected that the supporters of the resolution will be in the minority.

be declared null and void. This proposition was adopted by the House.
Count Eulenburg then read a royal message stating that the Diet
would be closed that day by the President of the Council, and this
event accordingly took place at a later hour in a speech from the
Throne, which was read by Count Bismark. The following are the
most important passages :

“ The Chamber of Deputies has maintained the ground which led to
the dissolution of the previous Chamber. The House has rejected the
bill referring to Article 99 of the Constitution, and has not discussed
the budget of 1863. In the budget of the current year it has struck
out items which are indispensable for the public service. The House
has also renewed the resolution of the previous Chamber upon the
military budget without having discussed the preliminary bill esta-
blishing the obligation to military service. For that reason the Upper
House, in the exercise of its constitutional rights, has rejected the
budget of 1864, as amended by the Chamber of Deputies. The
Government has carried out the vote of the Chamber with regard to
the Polish members arrested for high treason, but does not consider lt
conformable to the respect due to public justice, and to the dignity of
the House. The House has also refused the required loan proposed by
the Government to afford the means of carrying out Federal execution
in Holstein, as well as for the maintenance of Prussia‘s position as a
great Power and her honour in the further development of the conflict,
and likewise for covering the portion of the expenses of the execution
falling to Prussia as member of the German Confederation. The
House has rejected this vote, although the King has pied ed his word
in his reply of December 27 that the money should only e employed
for the protection of the right and honour of the country. The House
has passed resolutions by which the majority, in the event of warlike
complications, takes part beforehand against the Prussian fatherlrmd.
Renouncing, therefore, for the present the hope of bringing about an
understanding with the Chamber, the Government considers it its
duty to act for the maintenance of the State, and relies herein upon the
growing support of the country.”


Couur or Pnonsra sun Drvoncu, Jan. 26.—0'l(anu v'
O‘Kann arm PALMERSTON (Viscous-r).—'l‘his case, which has
given rise to so much private gossi and so many mysterious hints in
some of the newspapers, appeared) in the list for the first time this
morning. It was a petition for divurce on the part of the plaintiff, for
the alleged adultery of his wife with Lord Palmerston, from whom he
claimed 20,0001. damages. The petition was filed on the 19th October
last, and was served upon the respondent on the 21st of October. The
respondent's solicitor, Mr C. llorsley, entered an appearance for her
on the 28th of October. The respondent‘s answer was filed on the
11th of December, denying first the alleged marriage, and secondly the
alleged adultery. On the 17th of November an order was obtained
by the noble co-respondent for the delivery of particulars of the time
and place of the alleged marriage, no entry of it appearing in the
register of St George's church on the day in question. Lord Palmer-
ston also procured an order for further particulars relating to the
alleged act of adultery, and these orders not having been complied with,
he had abstained from filing any answer to the petition. Mr Digby Sey-
mour, for the respondent, now moved, calling up the petitioner to show
cause why he should not forthwith proceed with the suit, or that the
petition be taken off the file. The learned counsel said the petition
was filed on the 19th of October, 1863; the citation was served on the
21st of October, and appearance was entered on the 28th. On the
17th ofNovembor an order was made on the application of the co-respon-
dent for further particulars of the time and place of the alleged adultery.
The petition sets forth most vague and general charges of adultery, and
it was in consequence of that fact the Court made the order for particu-
lars on November 17. Since that time the petitioner had neither
obeyed the order nor taken any steps in the suit. Sir J. Wilde: I
cannot look at the respondent’s right to particulars as identical with
the co-rospondent's. Mr D. Seymour: The order having been made,
the respondent was entitled to call on the petitioner to proceed with
the suit, or in default that the petition should be taken off the file.
The learned counsel tbeu referred to the affidavit of Mr Horsley, the
attorney for the co-respondent, who swore in emphatic terms that he
believed that the suit was instituted without any reasonable and pro-
bablc cause, and for the purpose of extortion alone, and also cited the
case of " Here a. Hare," in which it was held that if the petitioner did
not proceed in reasonable time, the respondent had a right to ask that
the petition be dismissed; he therefore moved, on the part of the re-
spondcnt, for a rule calling on the petitioner to show cause why he
should not forthwith proceed with the suit; or that, in default, the
petition should not be taken off the file. The learned Judge said that
no doubt the Court was open to all suitors, but when a petition was
presented setting forth charges involving the character of the respon-
dent and co-raspondent, the suitor was bound to proceed with all due
diligence. It could not be tolerated for a moment that a suitor should
make such grave charges and delay proceeding with the suit. He
could not order the petition to be taken 00' the file, the Court did not
allow that to be done; but he would grant a rule to show cause on the
next motion day why the petitioner should not forthwith proceed with
the suit, or, in default, the petition be dismissed. Mr O'Kane is, there-
fore, to show cause next Tuesday why he does not proceed, or the
petition will be quashed.

came before the magistrates at Sittingbourne on Tuesday. We give a
pricis of the proceedings from an article in the Times.- Towards the
close of last year her Majesty’s Government sold certain vessels out of
the navy, and, among others, the Victor—a screw gun-vessel of about
850 tons and 350-horsa power, built only in 1854 for the purposes of
the war, but already condemned as unfit for service. The purchasers
of the vessel were a London firm, doing business in the City, but the
ship, after changing hands, remained for a time at Sheerness, under-
going repairs. In this there was nothing remarknblc; indeed, it ap-
pears that without some such privilege the sale itself would have been
nugstory, for the vessel was in no condition to be removed. So she
lay at Sheerness, with workmen aboard her, fitting out for her new
calling, and rechristened as the 130th One night, however, being the
night of the 24th of last November, the Sag/Ila, though still quite un-
, scaworthy, suddenly put to sea, and made for Calais. In this short
, voyage she underwent another conversion. Her new name was painted
out, and she was called the Rappahonnock, while, as if to clear all
doubts about her destination and character, she hoisted a Confederate
flag, and was announced to these on board her as a Confederate man-
of-ivar. These pretensions she maintained without disguise at Calais,
where a new captain came on board, who did not, indeed, say what the
ship was to do, or where she was to cruise, but who did inform the
crew that he had been chief mate of the Alabama, and that “ the prize
money was to go forward." The investigation immediately instituted
and energetically prosecuted on the part of the Government resulted
in a charge against Mr it’iltt'am Rumble, inspector of machinery afloat
in Sheerness Dockyard, who, after a lengthened inquiry, wascommitted
for trial, bail being allowed.

animals, was found drawn up close to the cage. Some of the employee immediately seized the long iron rods with a species of hoe at the end by which the cage is cleansed, and rushed to the spot. It was then discovered that one of the large lions had the man's right hand in his mouth, whilst another had seized him by the thick part of the forearm and had dragged the limb through the bars of the cage nearly up to the arm pit. Having no hot irons the men at once set to work bolubouring the animals over the skulls and eyes in order to make them let go their bold. These proceedings at the outset only tended to increase the ferocity of the animals, who amidst loud roars began tearing the flesh from their victim's arm and hand with their claws. It was not until the brutes were nearly blinded with the blows inflicted upon their eyes that they were induced to relinquish their gripe, when the poor fellow's mangled limb was drawn through the bars, but with some difficulty, and he fell fainting into the arms of those who had rescued him from his horrible position. He was at once conveyed to the secretary’s offices in Barford street, in an insensible condition, and covered with blood. Dr Thomas, of Cloudesley street, and another medical gentleman in the neighbourhood, were sent for, and attended in a few minutes, and in consequence of Greavcs's exhausted state, administered brandy and other stimulants. It was then discovered that the hand was bitten completely through, and the flesh torn 06' the arm, in most parts to the bare bone- T he mutilated limb was placed in bandages and the sufferer placed in a cab and taken to the St Bartholomew’s Hospital, where on examination by the surgeons it was underst that amputation would be necessary, and it was to take place so soon as the sufl‘ercr should have sufficiently rallied from the first shock to submit to it. The report last night was that he remained in too low a state from loss of blood to undergo the operation, and that he is in a very precarious state. At the time of the occurrence he was engaged in pushing some straw between the bars, either for the purpose of keeping it in the cage or of attracting the attention of the animals, and further familiarising himself to them. Whilst doing this one lion suddenly made a spring upon his hand, and fusteningits fangs into it, drew him by the arm inward. The roar and excitement of the first animal attracting the attention of the second, it sprang upon the arm, and mutilated it in the manner described. It is stated that the lions have been more than usually savage since the death of the large lioness, which took place during the late frost. During the afternoon Mr Crockett and the lions went through the usual exhibition, during what is called the morning performance, but nothing out of the ordinary way transpired, only that the two lions which had been beaten looked heavy and more gloomy than the others. It is now felt to be desirable that red-hot iron rods should always be kept at hand, as, had they been so, the animals would have instantly been made to let go their hold of the unfortunate man.

A FATAL accmrm'r occurred on Saturday night on the North London Railway, near the Fenchurch-street station. At a quarter past eight o'clock the body of James Branwell, the guard of a goods train, was discovered, frightfully mutilated, lying on the rails near the Haydon-square junction of the above railway. The head was completely severed from the body, and lay at some distance from it. The right leg was cut off, and both arms were broken. Mr Barnes, surgeon, was sent for, and the remains of the deceased were picked up, and, being placed in a coffin, were conveyed to Whitechapel dead-house. It appears that the deceased had come up by the eight o'clock train from Hackney for the purpose of taking charge of a goods train. He then walked from the Funchurch-strcet station up the line to the Haydon-square junction, and got up upon the engine of the goods train that was waiting for him. He noticed that the engine lights were not all right, and he got off the engine to the line for the purpose of shifting them. In the dark he missed the “ six foot," or the specs: between the up and the down lines, and be walked between the rails of the down line. ‘He had with him at the time the usual small guards' lantern, but it is not known whether the light was turned on. The 8.15 train from Fenchurch street to Camden town came on the down line at the rate of fifteen miles an hour, and knocked the deceased down. The engine, which weighed twenty-five tons, and all the carriages of the train, passed over his body. It is a fortunate circumstance that the train was not thrown off the metals. If it had been, the circumstances would have been fearful, as tho Blackwell train started from F enchurch street within one minute after the Camden town train. The deceased was thirty-five years of age, and had formerly been a soldier in the Indian army. He leaves a sick wife and three children. At the inquest, held on Wednesday, the jury returned a verdict, “ That deceased was killed by being knocked down and run over by a certain train on the North London Railway, accidentally, and the jury recommend that the railway company should in future cause the whistle of the engines to be sounded at passing goods stations as well as passenger stations." An employé of the company said that already the inhabitants of the houses along the line complained much against the excessive use of the whistle, and frequently wrote to the company about it.

Tan nus-res m Lennon LAST want: were more numerous than is usual at this period of the year, but exhibit a reduction as compared with that of the previous week. The deaths registered in the last three weeks were 1,798, 2,427, and 2,180. The mean temperatures of the air in the same periods were 267 deg., 36'8 deg., and “'5 dog. In the ten corresponding weeks of the years 1854-63 the average number of deaths was 1,389, which, with a correction for increase of population, becomes 1,529 ; therefore the deaths were more than the estimated amount by 651. The deaths last week exceeded the births in the same period by 104-. The deaths referred to pulmonary diseases (exclusive of phthisis) were 744, the corrected average being 385. Bronchitis was more fatal than any other disease, and caused 498 deaths; the average number is 225. The deaths ascribed to pneumonia are 148, whilst the average is 111. Phthisis, or consumption, carried off 246 persons, the average being 172. 403 deaths occurred from zymotio diseases, including 88 from typhus, 73 from scarlatina, 77 from whooping-cough, 34 from measles, and 12 from small-pox. 183 persons died from affections of the brain and nervous system, and 100 from diseases of the heart. 771 persons died under 20 years of age, 712 at 20 and under 60 years, and 690 at 60 years and upwards. The deaths of eighteen nonagenarians are recorded, the oldest of whom was a widow who had attained the age of 97 years. A mun, aged 40 years, died at 21 Mint street, Sculhwark, from destitution, accelerated by previous illness. A servant, aged 60 years, died in the Strand Union Workhouse from typhus, caused by destitution. The wife of a shoemaker, aged 77 years, was found dead at 2 Snvillc street, Marylebone, from effusion of serum on the brain, accelerated by the want of proper necessaries of life. The wife of a conch-trimmer died at Campbell


street, Kensington, from effusion on the brain caused by opium-eating.



Ma. Joann Woons died at Lemas on the 9th inst., having reached his eighty-eighth year. He was a member of the Antiquarian, Linaman,and Geological Societies, and of that of Georgofili in Florence. The son of parents of high commercial and social position in the city of London, who were of the Societ of Friends or Quakers, he had not. the advantage of a public schoo and collegiate education; but to that ofa common school he by assiduous self-instruction added a knowledge of the classical writers of Greece and Rome, of several European modern languages, and of all the sciences allied to his chosen profession, architecture, and to natural history, more partioularly botany, which was his favourite pursuit and relaxation. After serving a regular term of pupilage to Mr Alexander, an architect, then in large employment in the city, Mr Woods entered into practice himself; he so continued for a few years, and was rapidly advancing in his profession, when his failing health compelled him to withdraw from its labours, and thencefurward he devoted himself entirely to artistic and literary pursuits, and to the investigation of objects in natural history. He and a few professional friends had already founded the first short-lived Architectural Society,of which he was president; it consisted of twenty memberg of whom not one now survives, and two thin 8vo volumes of Essays are the sole evidence of its existence. Mr Woods contributed several papers,—0ne on the dry and purely technical subject of dilapidations, which architools and surveyors are called on to value; and to this subsequent writers on the same subject have confessed their great obligation, but there were subjects more congenial, which be dealt with, in essays on ‘The Situation and Accompaniments of Villas,’ and an investigation ‘On the Theories of Tnste,’ in which last he reviewed those of Hogarth, Burke, Uvedale, Price, Ropton, Knight, Allison, Reynolds, and Gilpin, and by copious extracts, interspersed With his own most pertinent remarks, he gave evidence of the thought and study by which he prepared himself subsequently to examine and illustrate the works of ancient art in foreign countries. Mr \Vooda went abroad in 1816, and after a long residence in France, Italy, and Greece, he published on his return, in two volumes 4tn, ‘ Letters of an Architect,’ a work which, unaided by booksellera' advertisements, soon earned for itself a deserved reputation, enrichrd as it is, not only by 'ust and copious criticism, and genial remarks on men and things w ich came under his observation, but by laborious detail in the exact measurement of parts of the building themselves. These volumes have been the acknowledged text-book of subsequent corn

ilers, such as Gender in his modern parables, &c., and the inevitable Elurray is largely and avowadly indebted to Mr Woods's book for its facts and observations. His only other professional publication was that of the third volume of ‘ Stuart's Athens,’ which be edited. Mr Woods was himself no mean artist in water-colour drawing,


though he never sought publicity in that direction, his style was landscape and architecture. His drawings are scrupulously faithful, when, as generally the case, he drew from nature. He attained more than most draughtsman what he aimed at, in an often quoted phrase, “ an eye mathematically correct and a hand perfectly obedient.” In colour, it has been observed that his drawings were tame and inexpressive, exact truth of outline was his first object and the varying effect. of light and shadow, and consequently range of colour was considered secondary in his earlier Works, but in his latter days, when making finished drawings from sketches of half a century ago, he warmed up, and at eighty-seven his effects glowed with the lumm pvrpureum juvenhz. Mr “'oods was distinguished as a botanist. In 1850 he published his ‘ Tourist's Flora,’ now an almost indispensable companion to every European botanist, and up to the day of his dccl see he was occupied with preparations for a fresh edition of this work. In popular education for the middle and lower classes he to 1k a deep interest, and in 1841 published notes on ‘ Schools for the Labouring Classes in Ireland,‘ the result of a journey undertaken for this benevolent purpose alone. Mr Woods, by his strict temperance and care, as well as by his placid temperament, prolonged to a rare old age a life which was from an early period threatened by heart disease. He outlived most of his early associates, not only those who congregated at his rooms in Rome, of whom Professor Donaldson is probably the only survivor, but also those who assembled at the parties of Sir Joseph Banks, whose frequent guest he was, in Soho square, where all the distinguished naturalists of that day met. Mr Woods himself continued to enjoy his chosen occupations to the last day of his life, for then, about mid-day, he laid down his pen, having made a memorandum as to the book he was reading, sank into his easy chair, was shortly after seen asleep, and never woke again. It is the happiness of the writer of these lines to have known Mr Woods for very many years; he was permitted as long since as the year 1815 to accompany him, amongst other yearly exhibitions of art, to that of the society now, for distinction sake, called “ The old \Vater-colour;" he did so again in 1862, and it delighted him to observe in his Venerable and beloved friend the some fresh and discriminating eye for that which was true and beautiful, the same sympathy with half-developed merit, and the same scorn for all that was false and pretentious. Mr Woods was never married; he leaves a younger brother and many nephews and nieces; he leaves also an unmarried sister, who with kindred tastes was his almost inst parable companion and affectionate friend for the. whole course of his Well-spent life.

Sm Wumraar Arusn'ros', tltelatcAttorney-Goneral, died on the 22nd inst., at his residence in Westbourno terrace, in his fifty-eighth year. He was the son of the late Rev. W. Atherton, Wesleyan minister, by Margaret, daughter of the late Rev. W. Morison, a minister of the established church of Scotland. He was educated in this country, and adopted the law as his profession. After going through the customary


legal education, he was called to the bar at the Inner Temple, and as

a barrister went the Northern Circuit. He practised as a special pleader for some years, and in 1852 became a Queen's counsel and bencher. He was appointed Solicitor-General in 1860, and AttorneyGeneral in 1861, and in the early part of the autumn last year was compelled to relinquish his post, owing to his greatly impaired health. Through his death a vacancy takes place in the representation of the city of Durham.

ADMIRAL G. HENDERSON died on the 23rd inst.,aged seventy-eight, at Middle Deal. lie was the son of Mr J. Henderson, for many years secretary to Admiral Lord Bridport, and saw much active service. REAR-ADMIRAL W. Asses died on the 23rd inst., at chmcuth, in his seventy-second year. He served with distinction from 1807 to the close of the war.

ROWLAND Human, nephew and successor of the celebrated bookseller J. Johnson, of St Paul’s churchyard, died on the 18th inst., as a Poor Brother of the Charter House, in his ninety-first year. Mr llunter was intimate with some of the best writers in the early part of the century, amongst whom may be named Dr Aikin, Mrs liarbauld, and the Edgrmrtbs (father and daughter). Ilis ultimate failure is said to have arisen from his adherence to old-fashioned modes of businear and his aversion to speculate. In him, we lose another of the few remaining links left between the literature of the past. and the present age.
