Tnosi perioni who art likely to be deluded by the iophistrie* of Messrt. Gladatone and Bright and their moit unpatriotic follower* should gtrr •ome little attention to the able addre** delircret ^ Captain Bedford Pirn, R.N., before the work Ing men of Edinburgh, on April.3.0th. Thi epitome he gave of Ru«sia'« bUtory, eipeciallv during the lait twenty year*, recall* a multiplicity of facta to memory that make it wonderful that people—tolerably «aae, or tolerably honest —can affect to believe she has any intention beyond roguish aggression. It is well worth LM - to place theJaets oi history, which Captain to: very ably narrated, against the fictionr the Russians and Radicals try to impost upon ui as truth. Russia's story i* one long catalogue of lies and villainy—there are no milder words for it. Again and again has she interfered in I neighbours' affairs (using/just such tools Gladstone and Bright), and again and again, as that interference has given the Russians footing In the land, has it resulted in the absorbing some unlucky country in Rusaia, and their robbing and Ill-treating the unfortunate people whom they bad first cajoled and then oppressed. Poland, the Crimea, Georgia, Cir-cassia, and now Bulgaria and Roumania have the same stary to tell of alliances that ended in misery and destruction. We should hope Capt.' Pirn's able and truthful address will penetrate to every corner of our land, and help to guard the English people from being swindled by the treachery the Russian agents—paid and upaid— so unscrupulously resort to.

PaoniBLT there would be no surer step towards the suppression of brutality than- the nuking of prison labour profitable. If it were possible to remove the habitual assaulters of women from the homes they make so wretched, and keep them at good hard uncomfortable work for a year or two, we believe the result would be found extremely beneficial. The legislature, however, hesitates to give the power to magistrates to inflict such sentences, out oi consideration for the pockets of th* taxpayers, as they would have to keep the brnte*, their labour at present being generally almost valueless Somewhere in America—we rather think in Canada—a clever governor of a jail ij'saTd U have made his establishment into a very profitable manufactory. Ilis secret, or system, ought certainly to be inquired into, and if capable of adoption here should certainly be-adopted. Possibly, however, his success was due to the fact if labour being more valuable, and criminals scarcer there than both sre here. Here, too, the baneful influence of the " Trades' Unions " has been brought into play, and political pressure has been put upon the government to- prevent anything like competition between pri*on labour and the work of the worthy persons at present nnconvieted. In *o serious a matter, however, a bold front ought to be shown, and the agitating gentry who misrepresent the working classes made to understand that the public good must be held superior to any das* interests whatever.
Thb gentlemen who are so angry with the Charity Organisation Societies should read an article that appeared in Chambers's Journal ol May 4th, over the well-known and deservedly, respected indtial: " W.O," or WUHmm Chmm. bers. No one who is acquainted (and few are not) with the good service Ckimbers's Journal and its conductors have done during the forty-six years of its valuable existence will doubt their hearty sympathy With misery, and their earnest desire to alleviate suffering. For many years they, andlhey alone, did real substantial work in the Press, in • civilising the masses, and showing how their condition might be amended. They have been of the people, and for the people. Their politics we know nothing about, but suspect they arc just the reverse of our own. W* only allude to this to impress upon our reader* that in every way Chambers's Journal Is in sympathy with those who profess the greatest respect for the
Eopular voice.. Now, in the article to which we ave alluded, they castigate nearly the whole tribe of so-called philanthropists in the very
Plainest terms. The promoters of pseudo-enevolent societies, the gentlemen who are so ready to collect money to spend on the poor (charity begins at home) they denounce as enemies of all real progress, all self-respect, and the worst foes of the poor on their way to comfort and independence. They show from the terrible example misdirected benevolence in the United States has afforded, bow ready thousands are to sponge, and bov: completely indiscriminate charity fails In producing any gocfl result. Indeed soup kitchens, free lodgings, and free louche* in New York, afforded such good food and such excellent shelter on such very easy easy terms, that soma employers of labour could get no one to work. The sons and daughters of toil much preferring idleness and poor pay, hard work and decent remuneration.
W« have before us a leaflet entitled " Twelve Reasons why England should not g* to war with Russia," and if they are all of the value of the third reason we are sincerely sorry for It, for do not want war, and hope there are better n sons against it. Indeed, we know only < reason for war—that Russia will not allow any satisfactory peace. The arguments favour of peace, however, must be sounder than those of the noodle who compiled this pre-etous twelve, fbr he asserts, in his wonderful third clause, that Russia in reclaiming territory on the Danube is only resuming her " natural boundary,"'of whldh she was unjustly deprived (he says) in 18561 Ignorance of history is deplorably common t but this beat* all we ever encountered in this line before. Why Russia only acquired this particular sHp of territory In 1829. That is. It had hardly been hers more years (27) when she ceded it than it has ceased to b# now, when ah* clAims it again after 22 years abeenc* from it* *oU. As lor th* natural boundaries of Russia—it would be a great relief to her neighbours to know what and wlxfr* th*y are. A

Almost simultaneously with the re-opening of Parliament the Russian ambassador started e> route for St. Petersburg^ His mission is doubt-lew to put before, his master the exact state of affairs here, and save him, we may hope, from falling into the same error that deceived his father. That was believing that the peace-at aoy-prke party represented the people of England, when they only represented themselves, (and even, then did not m*an anything likt what they said.) The feeling early in the weel was that things looked much more pesceful; and, although no change in the situation apparent to the world, yet there seemed of those convictions growing up that sometimes crystalize into very solid realities. Before this reaches the eye of the reader, peace may be aisurcd and the. natione all the happier—and pcrbap* the prospect may be even darker and more obscured than ever. If the nations are spared the miseries of war they will owe but scant thanks to th* professed friends of peace—

Th* English Government in trying the experiment of drawing troops from' India has not only taken a step necessary to assert the unity of the Empire, but bss essayed to overcome the diffi-culty we have always experienced in raising a large army from a peeple and a country where labour holds the highest vslue. We have been in the habit of using foreigners in our wars, ever since the days of William III and Marlborough. Sometimes it was under one name and sometimes under another ; .now we hired a brigade, now we subsidized a nation ; but in every war we waged foreign troops were largely employed. Even so late as the Crimean War we raised German and Italian legions; " German " and " Italian " being useful synonymcs for all who cared to take our pay. We raised an army in Turkey from her Mahotnmedans, rffficered them with Englishmen, and even had our own Basbi Bizooks! So fs.r from the Government having done anything re-
i India, they have simply endeavoured to e us independent of foreigner*, by using all resources found within the empire.
ExTaAomo*. — While we would preserve most jealouily our British freedom and our British right of sheltering the unfortunate, we should be sorry to see villainy protected by any defect of the law; and on this point of extradition .the law appear* to be nothing like »o well defined as it ought to be. We sometimes fail in obtaining the extradition of suspected criminals from our neighbours ; and they, we fancy, much oflener fail in obtaining the restoration of thrir had subjects from our sheltering shores. The abuse of extradition should certainly be guarded against, but mere' technicalities should not be allowed to stand in the way, and bar the road ol justice. _S

indebted to the columns of Truth for the following particulars relating to our much esteemed member. Little as we like the gossip shops which are now an ugly feature of the English Press, the psrtieulars mentioned are so honourable lo Mr Gurney, that we have no hesitation in quoting the following. Says
The Court of Aldermen has giined but little credit by it* refusal to grant to Mr Ruwell Gurney a retiring penron, and itill lee* by the plea that th* late Recorder i* not entitled to one became he ha* large private mean*. Indeed, thi* i* not, I believe, in accordance with fact Mr. Bn***ll Ourney impoverished himself in a manner that reflect* the groate*t honeur on him. Be had invested considerable sum*, and he had advised leveril of hi* relative* to invert oonriderabl* *um* in a Company. Tbeae inveetment* proved unfortunate, and rather than that any of hie relitivea should *nffer by hi* advice, be recouped to tbem their I—e*. Several time*, whilst acting a* Recorder he vu offered a Puime Judgeihip,. and thi* would have entitled him to a retiring penxicn. I would recommend tb* Court of Aldermen to roocn* rider it* decUion. The election of Mr. Charley proved that the City doe* not know how to elect jodge*, and the refuial of a peuiion to Mr. Gurney pre ' ' not know how t# do justice to those who.
have reflected honour on th* metropolis.
