SATURDAY, MARCH 80, 1878.
When tbe match-manufacturers demonstrated to effectually *ome years since against Mr. Lowe's proposed match tax, we wonder it did not occur to the Fire Insurance Offices to organise a counter demonstration, a* the matches are plainly no friends, of theirs. Much comfort as the self-lighting matches give, they have certainly brought danger* in their train, and have facilitated the vjork ol the incendiary in more than one direction. In the towns, misfortunes from their use are generally the result of carelessness ; wilful fires in towns being comparatively rar«, at any ;ate unfrequent as the work of (he classes who would be likely to be incited to mischief by the readiness with which fir* can be obtained from friction matches. In the country it is quite different, and there idle boys, and careless tramps, by their misuse of thi* ingenious invention, have done much mischief indeed. Sometimes mere children have set ricks on fire from sheer love of a blaze. Sometimes wandering ruffians light their pipes to the lee of a stack, and poke the lighted match among the straw or bay as a convenient sort of extinguisher. We will say nothing of tbe fires that come from malice, as' their creators would perhaps find the absence of friction matches only a trifling impediment to the gratification of their rascality. Still, even these malignant gentry find their work much facilitated by the readiness and cheapness with whjch they are now obtained. Ergo, we think the tax should have been enforced.
EvaavTBiNO has its use—at least so optimists tell us—and therefore we presume the Irish Uome Rule members of the British Parliament serve some beneficent purpose; although what that purpose is it is beyond human wit to discover. Their presence is certainly no good to the empire whose affairs they do their best to hinder and disarrange. Ireland would be much better off if these gentlemen would leave her alone. Nor are we able to see that their real constituency—the Pope—gains much more from them than he does from the mutinous Swiss Guards. Their bad bahaviocr lately nearly reduced his Holiness to the painful necessity of calling in the Italian police to save his palace from being plan* dered by the pious mercenaries who are supposed to-guard him from bis unfaithful Romans. Aa lor Irith independence, geography settled that long sgo, and if any comment on the text she affords is necessary, wp hare the safety of the British empire as an overwhelming argument in favour of the present state of thing*. The ob-
the point it has reached among the other leading statms of Europe. This is especially shown in our foreign relations. We seek—like honest men-nothing but what shall conduce to the general good, while each and every other State is endeavouring «o bring sbont some gain to itself. If we acquire a new colony, all tbe world benefits. The-soil may be atrewn with gold,but there is no restriction in favour of British subjects seeking ***# front'tbe liberal earth. It is free to each and to all. Commerce, too, we have freed, both at home srfd 'kbftjkd, to the whole world. It is only in^ttjbse polonies—independent in all:but the tUtne—where a democratic and Ignorant ma-'orlty; controul tbe intelligent lew, that any sbatfr* of restriction on trade remains in the British empire. We may observe, in passing, that if any difference; ia made by thase amiable states of the future, it is always against the mother Ta#,;?tme*. on Monday, admin Me red a stern rebuke'to -Mr. Gladstone for the miserably unpatriotic tone df hh answer to the Greenwich Radicals. .

A* && Mr. Gladstone, his utterances are so,distinctly, and.*o servilely Russian that they would'be.ludicrous were it not disgraceful that any English ststelman can-be so lost to all self-respect (OS to act as the elect of Greenwich does, and bis done. As for the Radical squad, who echoed Mr. Gladstone's mongrel mongolianism, they'are too de»picahle»to deserve a word/ If they fajrty represent his constituents, they and their member arc very well matched. We will do them the kindness, however, to believe that they cheered Mr. Gladstone's manner rather than his matter—not having the capacity to understand how mean and how malignant his teachings

This week has. been darkened (even more than by the rumours of impending war) by the terrible fate of the Eurydice. Tbe sharpness and suddenness of the catastrophe, the death of so msny poor (allows in sight of land, and almost in sight of home, would, in themselves, have stirred many hearts to the depth. This, however, is not alL The loss of the frigate, following on to so , many other accidenta and misfortunes in tbe Royal Navy, especially the foundering of the Csptain and the sinking of the Vanguard, haa raised a painful 'sense of doubt in.the efficiency of the service, and justify a strong suepi-" ' • '* inner*, better education,
in these days, having been built in 1843, from tbe designs of Admiral Elliott, at a time wh^n the Admiralty were tolerating various experiments in shipbuilding at the national expenxe. Doubts as to hIt has pleased tbe Radicals to create an imaginary war party in this country, and to debit them with all the,disgust Englishmen feel at their country b eing tricked and its inter perilled. In truth, for the irritation and anger that has grown up the Liberal party has only to thank itso>*n leaders. For the past two years their conduct has been steadily and uniformly { unpatriotic. Their views of our policy in th East they had a right to, but they had no righ to endeavour to brihg that policy about by aiding their country's enemies. Yet this they have done in the meanest and shabbiest way possible. Every libel on Kngland that foreign malice could invent, ftiese gentlemen have eagerly repeated and exaggerated. They assumed al every step that fcujjish motives must be mean and bame, and have never, been tired of asserting their irt-diffcrenfcfl to British interest*, and their confidence in tbe honour of Russia, whose history is one long catalogue of duplicity and treachery.
Toa acquisition of. Egypt by this country will probmbly take the form of simple purchase of the Sultan's right of supremacy. As he has virtually sold his tribute—certainly mortgaged it for a very indefinite period—it is merely tbe "equity of redemption " that this country will have to scqnire. That should, not, therefore, in Yankee phrase, "foot up" to a very immoderate sun and considering the pressure on the Sultan' purse just at present he would probsbly be con tented by a very moderate compensation. Supposing the Russian indemnity were a little r moderate, it would be no bad investment fc to pay that money, and accept the rights of the Porte over Egypt, in exchange. Even Mr. Gladstone could hardly pretend that by making ie such a purchase we were inflicting any wrong lt I upon the Sultan, although, doubtless, he and Mr. Lowe will impede thi* measure, a* they would any other likely to add to tbe power and prosperity of thi* country.




from the
lie various articles, of course, are written from very different points ol view. Ultramontane- Carlisle seeing in the horrors which disgraced Paris and Prance, clear and cogent proof that all men —but a few—are born bridled and saddled; and that it i* the right and duty of the few to use whip and spur for their restraint and guidance. These gentlemen, of course, regard all liberty aa the road to anarchy, but save among the silly people whome folly has taken them cii. PT*r^li«m into the Roman fold, have no eympaibise.a in England. Eugli*b Conservative*, when they remember the bad government* that had exasperated so many generations ot F.cncbmen, and who cannot forget the ferocity with which the Communists were treated when their opponents mustered courage to attack them in earnest, are hardly disposed to join in the Te Deum the Casssgnacs and Veuillots so piously raise over a victory whose cowardly excesses will ever disgrace the annals of France.
Tub week opened with many signs of war. Tbe tone of the Russian Press had been allowed I become post insolent towards this country. Tb possibility of a Congress (from which alone pacific solution'was hoped) had .become almo: hopeless. Minor signs were not wanting that crisis was.at hand. The tone of the limes be Came distinctly national, as if they knew the time
had come when sympathy with Russia----,J L-

Tub Hamfshibi a*o Nobtu Wilts Basiihg Compant.—The question of tbe admission of the Hampshire and North Wilts Banking Company to the Banker*a Clearing House, in place of the firm of Willis, Percifal, and Co., who lately failed, was taken into consideration on Saturday last, by the Committee of the Clearing House, and the following resolution wa* passed unanimously, after some discussion :—
That in the opinion of thi* Committee the Hampshire and North Wilt* Banking Company ia at prr*ent essentially a country baek; but that, if either in virtue of *rrang*ment referred to im Mr. Willi*'* letter, or otherwise, their butinee* in London ihould become important, the Committee would be willing to con*id*r any application from them for admiuion to the Clearing —As a consequence of this it became necetsary on the part of the administrators of Messrs, Willis, Percival, snd Co.'s estate to notify that the decision left the Hampshire and North Willi Banking Company at liberty to retire from the preliminary agreement. The Globe, in referring to the subject, mskes the following remarks : — The re fa sal of the Clearing-hou** Comnsiltme to allow the Hampshire and North Wilts Bank U) enter the Clearing-hon*e in lieu of Mo**r*.

The object is on< that commands universal sympathy, and it ii hoped the result of increased efforts in 1878 will be a heavier c Meet Ion than any it has yet been our duty to record. Th* various boxes that have been profusely distributed ought to give a large return, and we hope there will be an honourable rivalry as to who tball have the credit of returning the largest sum collected by thi-simple fashion.
Tub Standard of Wednesday quoted ft Post (of Berlin) an article which is alleged to express the views of Prince Bismarck on the present state of affairs. We quote the substance, a* follows:—
If England persists in not attending tho Concres*. the Treaty of Peace would then be deprived of a Euro-pein unction. It i* b«rdly correct to see in England'* demand respecting condition* preliminary to the Con. greaa only a formal dispute There exi*t* a great differ, enoe between what England damands'and what liu**ia anaerts Therefor* it i* intelligible that England should demand that the Tres/j *honld, aa a whole, be «ub-raitted to th* Congreee Tor examination and deliberation. If England doe* not attend tbe Congre** t San Stefanoi* juridically invalid Englani continue her armament*, and wait for the able moment fir her action. If Hntaia wi ilf upon the offftoi

Russia cannot bring about an anti-ritiab coalition, while England may bm aupported by Turkey renewing the war againet Russia, who would be compelled by circumstance* to advance beyond the limit* drawn by the San Stefano Treaty.

Turkey will find mean* to make •pontaneou* tacrificea of her poaaeasion* on the Western Balkan Penin*ula in favour of Austria and Greece, in order to recover Bulgaria. To avoid lbe*e eventualities Russia ihould be wise enough to be moderate.
