Poor Lord Radnor.

A London correspondent writes :-—: Lord Radnor is m a quridjis pqsi;tian,» He has a rent roll of £20,00 pa year nnd'ean't/ manage to! live / Buitablyi;: Moreover, hi^ eldest.son, Lord F6lkestohe, has only »n allowance of.£Boo a year. These facts, painful and thought-compelling, came out m an appeal heard jbefqret the Court of Appeal recently:' .Lord'Penzance, who is trustee under fchelateLord Radnor's will (he died ft few nionths ago), opposed the desire of the pvesent lord tp BelUome of the valuable family $ plct«r^sv There' are three he wishes to dispose of for £55,000 —^one by Holbein, known as " The Philosoper' "; a portrait by Velasquez, and one fry GiridGor Moroni, The e»ri!s complaint

is that out of the total incomeof the eaUtefi — £20,000 to wit—he has tp make provision for the interest on tho mortgages' and certain other charges, and to keep up Longford Castle at the cost of £13,000 a year. This leaves a very small sum for personal expenses. If the three pictures are sold there will still remain 279. < which are worth half a million. Justice Chittyi authorised the sale, but tints decision was appealed n<<j,*.inst-. According to Lord Peiw.nce's counsel tho Earl of Radnor received £'25C0 ;i yeir after providing for every ospenas, and this he considered sufficient. But Lord Justice Bnwon thought it w.-vj young Lord Folkestone who was especially interested m the sale, as he wanted to got. married,-.nn&j didn't think £800 enough to be bold upon. The Master of the Rolls had a touching of the days when he w^s a poor barrister, and was on a visit, to a great nobleuvui's palnae ; he was informed then, to his astonishment, that it cost £1000 a wcok to keep up\ But m spite of tho manifest sympathy of the Master for noblemen with such huavy .responsibilities; their lordships postponed judgement. Now wo hear that their decision is m favour of poor Lord Radnor.
