The Government have agreed to consider the question of a Royal Prince being appointed Viceroy of Ireland. In connection with the raid made on a fashionable baccarat club in Park place, London, an attempt will be made to prove that Lords Dudley and Lurgan were only occasional visitors. It is asserted that Lord Dudley lost L 5.000 and Lord Lurgan L 2,000, The club has proved the ruin of many young men of fashion, and Benzon, “The Plunger,” was ruined there. Seaton, the proprietor, is a noted gamester j and the same may be said of Davis, a money-lender, who supplied ready money to young men on post obits. The raid was made on the application of Lord Bateman, owing to the heavy losses there of his son. The Italian Government will agree to recognise King Menelek as Negus of Abyssinia, provided that the British Government are willing to do so.

The Emperor William will receive a deputation from the colliers in a day or two. The strike fever is affecting artisans throughout Germany.
