A ROYAL DEER HUNT. [WHERE WAS LORD ONSLOVVr | UNITED PEEBS ASSOCIATION. I The agitation in favour of suppressing the Royal Huekhounds was greatly strengthened by a cruel hunt which took place on 29th November. Two deer were carted from Windsor to Marlow, 20 miles away, and one of them let loose. It proved to be a poor-apiritod animal, and after travelling aimlessly about for a, while, with a crowd of small boys and ruffianly men at its heels, took refuge dpad beat in a farm yard shed. The other deer was then started, and turned ont less satisfactory even, from a sportsman's point of view. Instead of taking to the open country as any well-conditioned animal ought to ho.ye done, it ran into the outskirts of the town, and inally got entangled in a barbed-wire fence. There it hung for a time, with the hounds close behind, and when it extricated itself, it ran round the field, with the blood pouring from its mouth. Finally it foil in a dying condition, and the nearest butcher drove a knife into its heart. This is ono of the " Royal Sports," for tho continuance of which several aristocratic personages and the Windsor tradesmen recently petitioned the Qneen. Her Majesty has decided that the Royal Bnckhonnds shall cease to exist at the end of the present season. At a meeting of shareholders in the Milford Haven Railway Company, held in London on Ist December, the Chairman said that as a result of his visit to the United States, it had been practically settled that a line of American steamers, to be called the Montreal and Milford line, would be established.

The Leeds Mercury advised the adoption of Milford Haven a a the English port of tbo line, and said, further, that the new service would be an immense agoncyin promoting Imperial Confederation, and in course ot time would wre»t the supremacy of the Atlantic irom Now York.
