BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS. LONDON, April 12. World-wide congratulations, including -many from Australasia, reached General Booth on his 80th birthday.

Despite his advanced age, the head' of the Salvation Army is ceaselessly active in the service of the army which he commands in fifty-four countries and colonies, and the great administrative duties of the organisation are still carried out by the founder of the movement.

The Queen and the Dowager-Empress Marie received the General at Buckingham Palace last week, and were greatly interested in his accounts of his Continental visit.
