es. He begged to assure the noble Lord and the House that he did not stand here as the advocate and mouthpiece of the Northern Government. He looked at the question purely from an English point of view. No man more deeply deplored than himself the evils caused by the war, both here and in America, and no prepossession in favor of either party would prevent him from supporting any feasible mode of putting an end to them. He believed, however, that the motion of the honorable member from Sunderland, so far from staying the war, would rather aggravate and prolong it, and possibly drag us into it; and he earnestly trusted that we would persevere in the principle and policy of entire non-intervention.--(Hear, hear)* * * * Were we in the position of the Federal--take the case of the war in India — if an offer of mediation had been made, accompanied by a threat — if France had stood forward and said, this contest can end only in separation — should we not have considered it an insult<

[A laugh] For, sir, I know the Treasury Bench right well.

[A laugh] My letter to the honorable member from Sunderland got to Patis, and subsequently we had the audience asked for. I am now going to make a statement which the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs may think somewhat surprising, but it is true for all that. The Emperor of the French said, and he gave me authority to repeat it here, "As soon as I learned that that rumor was circulating in England, I gave instructions to my Ambassador to deny the truth of it. Nay, more, I instructed him to say that my feeling was not, indeed, exactly the same a

How Garrotters are Punished in England. --The following is extracted from the Durham Chronicle, an English paper: John Croudace and Thomas Allison, who were convicted at the assizes last week of garotte robberies at Sunderland, and sentenced, the former to five years and the latter to ten years penal servitude, with twenty lashes each, underwent the punishment of flogging at the county prison on Saturday. The instrument of punishment was manufactured by a sailor, who is undergoing imprisonment in the goal, expressly for the purpose. The cat is ingeniously composed of nine thongs of stout leather, in each of which are nine knots, and these being connected to a flexible handle, the power, wielded by strong hands, is terrific. At every stroke the knots cut deeply, making flesh and blood fly in every direction. The prisoners were firmly tied up in a reclining position, the lower part of their shoulders exposed, the higher and lower part of their backs being protected by pad
