MEMORANDUM
wlthoot BlotboK Paper, NINEPENCB
To MAINTAIN the trmj it its sversge strength requires thirty thousand recruits mnnutllj. Ai iha population of t6e British Islands is more than thirty-three millions, this is less than one in m thousand ; and certainly were the authorities to be unable to obtain that one, people would imply, either that the service, on soma account, was extremely distasteful ; or else that the military spirit bad nearly died out among us. It must not be forgotten, however, when we read of the supply of iccruits running short that the servicc requires'certain conditions of health and strength that practically and properly close the ranks to numbers who, except as porters, would never be objected to for any capacity for which they were otherwise qualified in civil life. Something, too—and we believe a great deal—must be credited to the ignorance that prevails u to the improved condition of the service. Traditions, arc rife among the many of the severities that were too common possibly, once upon a time, but have long ceased not only to be legal, but even possible. If the authorities could learn a lesson from the traders we think (as we have hinted before) that advertising would serve them well. \Ye no not mean advertising in the itpde of the old fashioned placards, which depicted a brilliant 'tdarriorjin a superb uniform, charging imaginary foes ; and implied that every lad who took the shilling was on ihe straight road to a colonelcy, and would find the road lined with guineas—for these were among the s which brought discredit on the service. «re do think that if the War Office understood how such a paper as Lloyds penetrates into lost remote country villages, and into the closest and most out-of-the-way recesses of our ge towns, they would see the advantage of having the terms and conditions of the soldier's life under the new regime plainly set out in its columns every week. We believe were such m course adopted with but this one of the numerous journals which circulate among the masses, the advantage to the country would be solid and considerable.v As' the gentlemen of the War Office (whose journalistic reading 'is most likely confined to the "Society" papers) arc not likely to have heard of the paper in question, and may have heard of Lloyd's List, wc beg to add that the paper we mean, to give its full title, is Lloyd's Weekly London Newspaper, and any news'-agent will tell them more about iL
That • France contemplates spending many millions sterling over the improvement of her internal communications, is a significant proof of how little her statesmen regard the burden the troubles of'70-*71 placed upon their country. Part of this money will be spent in acquiring certain railways, unprofitable as speculations, and yet whose well-being is of importance to the community. Whether the French Minister of Finance has studied the plans of the late ilr. Raphael Brandon, we do not know, but his views certainly reflect some of the theories of that ingenious and unfortunate gentleman. The canals of France are also be taken in hand by the government, who expect, by improving these vater ways, to be able to relieve the railways of tome of their goods' traffic. While they thus give greater facilities for the general commerce of ihe country. All this has a double importance, for it shows, indirectly, that French statesmen do not contemplate action outside their border—at present. It is also a hint to our own people tn see if some lessons of utility to this country maj be gleaned from the proposala of M. Say in

That the Harbour Board has reduced its dues on shipping to an uniform penny per ton. will, we believe, be found of much advantage in attract-In* mbipplog to tbe port. We think the action ol the Board will be endorsed heartily by the ratepayers, as they mujt easily realise the impolicy of taxing our customers, and so adding to the expenses of vessels using the harbour. The nearer we approach to making our port absolutely free to shipping, the more vessels we shall certainly attract here; and the more business will be done in the town ; which we take is the result sought by all the expenditure devoted to the improvement of the port, and the aim we all hope to achieve. The debate which was raised on the question of the new loan was provoked, we notice, not so much from doubt as to its expediency —for on that point'opinion was tolerably unanimous—but bv a pretty general notion that the money in these days, when the bank-rate ii down to " two per cent.," might be procured oc easier terms. This seems, however, to be a mistake, as although there is a glut of capital In lb* cellars of the Bank of England, capitalists seem to dread all and every class of investment—a feeling we believe that is dlle touncertainty which for some time'-fcast' has hrtng over the political future. The settlement (when it con of the Eastern Question, will advantage ui well as other people; and wo may hope both to have more business, and to obtain tbe sinei
Tub thorough loyalty of the Conservative |
here to their country and their leaders, has been well evinced by the tone and temper of the nume rous meetings we chronicle this week. Signs, too, seen on every band, show that the feeling exhibited at these demonstrations is but an outcome of the feeling of the entire country. The Russian Radical alliance shows symptoms of bring rent asunder, and our Muscovite enemies will have to meet an united people. For this triumph of patriotism and good sense the country has, in a great measure, to thank the Conservative party; and no little gralitud? is due to the members and organiser* of the constitutional associations, similar to those whose meetings we report today. Thanks to them, the mischievous, unpatriotic, shabby sentimental views In which Mr. Gladstone and his* most miscellaneous following delight, have been most effectually combated, and the country preserved from the folly of aiding her most dangerous enemies.

Turn proposed ba»es for peace between Turkey and Russia will probably be considerably modified before they become embodied in a solemnly rati, fled treaty of peace. There is an elasticity about them in more than one direction that will admit of a considerable divergence of, definition. Il Russia had only to deal with Turkey and the English Radicals, she would, doubtless, be able to have everything all her own way. Her proposals, however affect (and may very materially affect) tbe Interests of the Austro Hungarian monarchy, and the federated states under the Hotiss of Ilapsburg are in a position to make their wishes known and felt. Moreover, the interests of England are happily under the guidr ance of the national, as opposed to the coslno-politan party; and they arc, happily, little disposed to allow their country's rights and interests I? he juggled rnwmy, lo return fur empty phrase:.

He thought that if a society oould be formed that would give financial well aa moral help many more would be found willi lo try to solve the problem of ariol navigation. He spoof (he service rendered by balloons during the Franco-German War, and said that before they could become a great means of navigating the air people must have more opportunities for beoomingacquainted with their peon-Iiarfliee and properties. With respect to the proposal to navigate the air by the nae of screws he could not say mocb. but he thought that to be euooeeeful it must be by- mechanical means, and nothing else.
