British glories, what themes and subjects! But how can I shout for Cambria? What is Cambria, alone? What has she done, what hope for her, separate and distinct from her big sister Britannia, or rather Anglia? United, they are great; but divided, neither is aught. Now do you understand to what a hard shift I am put? I shall be hooted out of the country, because my stubborn tongue cannot frame agreeable fictions! June 16, 1891, he wrote to me:-- You ought to have been with me at Carnarvon, simply to be amazed at the excitement in North Wales, along the line, as I stepped from the train; the people, hard-featured, homely creatures, rushed up, the crowd being enormous. Yesterday I had a striking explanation of why and wherefore the woman in the Scriptures kissed the hem of the Master's garment: as I moved through the crowd, I felt hands touch my coat, then, getting bolder, they rubbed me on the back, stroked my hair, and, finally, thumped me hard, until I felt that the honou

ssigned me on the steps of the throne, in the very body of the house, where I remain even during divisions. I was present at a most interesting debate on the 20th June, on the affairs of Spain. The debate of Tuesday, June 19, 1838, in the House of Lords upon intervention in favor of Don Carlos, is reported in Hansard's Parliamentary Debates, Third Series, Vol. XLIII. pp. 806-867. The peers who spoke at length were the Marquis of Londonderry, Viscount Melbourne, Lord Lyndhurst, Earl of Carnarvon, Marquis of Lansdowne, and Duke of Wellington; the Earls of Minto and Ripon spoke briefly. I heard Lyndhurst; and I cannot hesitate to pronounce him a master orator. All my prejudices are against him; he is unprincipled as a politician, and as a man; and his legal reputation has sunk very much by the reversal of his judgment in the case of Small v. Attwood, Clark and Finnelly (House of Lords), Vol. VI. pp. 232-531. The Lords read their opinions on March 22, 1838. The case involved t
n. From this time I was constantly with him. The month of June and part of July were passed principally in London. I have already described the dinners of the Queen and the Prince of Wales, and told of the Court Ball, and the Reception at the house of the United States Minister. Besides this, dinners were offered him by the Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lorne, the Prime Minister, Lord Beaconsfield, by the Dukes of Devonshire and Wellington, the Marquis of Ripon, the Earls of Derby, Carnarvon, and Dunraven, the Master of Trinity and Lord Houghton, and many others. Mr. Pierrepont invited the Prince of Wales to meet him at dinner; I gave him an evening party and a dinner; Mr. Smalley, the correspondent of the New York Tribune, invited him to breakfast, and Mr. Russell Young, of the New York Herald, to dinner; the Reform Club and the United Service Club gave him dinners, at the last of which the Duke of Cambridge, the Commander-in-Chief of the British army, presided; and there we

In the House of Lords on the 7th inst. the Earl of Carnarvon was anxious to ascertain the truth, or rather to obtain from Her Majesty's Government a contradiction of a story which had been in circulation during the last we, when he was offered his liberty, it was on the condition that he should for swear his own nationality and swear allegiance to the Northern States. He (Earl of Carnarvon) could hardly believe that such a state of things was possible; but this was the story. It was said that this gentleman with very great courage and constancy resuch a power attached to the President under the Constitution of the States.--He had no objection to produce the correspondence upon the subject. The Earl of Carnarvon was sorry to hear that the facts of the case as he had stated them, and which he could scarcely bring himself to believe, were borne out by the statement of the
in my opinion, the course pursued by the Government is one much more likely than that suggested by my honorable friend the member for Birmingham to secure the continuance of peace. (Loud cheers.) The blockade. Insurances are effected in Liverpool on British vessels chartered to "run the blockade," the charter party selecting his port of entry. The rates are from ten to fifteen guineas. Imprisonment of another Englishman. In the House of Lords, on the 18th, the Earl of Carnarvon called attention to the imprisonment of Mr. Shaver, a British subject, in Fort Warren, and said it was a clear case of compensation. Earl Russell said Mr. Shaver had not claimed compensation, and it was not the duty of the Government to do it for him, neither had he rebutted the charges brought against him. Earl Russell deeply regretted the civil war in America, and expressed the hope that England would treat with forbearance any stretch of power not intended to injure British in
The blockade in England and France. Earl Russell, in the House of Lords, on the 28th ult., in reply to a question from the Earl of Carnarvon, took occasion to explain away the treaty of Paris completely. That treaty said: "The blockade to be respected must be efficient." Common men understood that an efficient blockade meant a blockade which kept vessels from entering. But Lord Russell is not a common man, and he does not understand the matter in that light. An officiant blockade, according to him, is a blockade which admits any number of vessels that choose to come in. The present blockade being of this character, is, of course, regarded by his lordship as the very beau ideal of a blockade. There has been nothing like it since the good old times, when the British Minister blockaded all the ports of France, from the Elbe to Otranto, by an "Order in Council," and Napoleon the First blockaded all the British Isles by a decree from Berlin. In the French Senate the Marquis

The course taken in the House of Commons is therefore not contradictory to the course which I have taken with regard to those papers. Neither is there any difference between the Attorney General and myself, because the objection to the other papers being produced was made on account of the Attorney General, and not on account of the foreign affairs of the country.--[Hear, hear.] The Earl of Carnarvon.--I wish to call your lordships attention to a matter which I think is not of that infinitesimally small character. It relates to a promise which I understood the noble Earl to have given in this House about a week since in reference to a motion which I then made. My motion contained three points. The first was a return of claims made on the American Government by British subjects; and I certainly was astonished to hear that it would take two months to draw up, inasmuch as I believed th
