t present to protect the whole coast of Brazil and the whole of South Africa and the Indian Ocean; and there is only one vessel east of the Straits of Sunda besides the old James town, which is useless in modern warfare. The "Alabama" in Eastern waters. By the arrival of the Cape mail, we learn that two vessels had arrived in Table Bay, at the end of December, with news of the Alabama. Captain Cato, of the Beautiful Star, reported that in passing the Straits of Sunda, on the 25th of October last, he was informed that the Alabama had passed Angler a day or two before. She had twenty-five men sick, and did not report any captures. Capt Sedgwick, of the Latona, from Singapore, reported that he had heard of the Alabama being in the China Sea, and on the night of November 6th, off the Java Heads, saw a fine vessel of about five hundred tons, with all sails set, on fire, and a barque rigged steamer near her, which he supposed to be the Alabama A private letter describes the

that this will be forthcoming, yet the withholding of the royal approval is evidently the hitch in the matter. Let us hope that it will be finally graciously and gracefully yielded. In the whole Guelphei family there is no one more popular than the Princess Mary, and the people of England would infinitely sooner see her wedded to an English nobleman for whom she cares than to a German one whom she may never have seen. As to the name of the gentleman, that is easily arrived at. Our friend Punch says: "All happiness to Viscount Cucullus." Scraps of school-boy classic lore, yet lingering in odd corners of memory, remind us of the old proverb, non facit monachum cucullus--the hood does not make the monk — and then looking into that peerage which every well-regulated Briton keeps by him, we find that Viscount Hood served in the Guards; and lo, on the ingenious principle ascribed to the first cooper of putting two and two together, the whole mystery is solved.--London Star, October 25.
