Emanuel Delbast Violenia

On Monday Prince Albert Victor arrived at Balmoral on a visit to the Queen.
Sir Lionel Sackville-West, Envoy Extraordinary at Washington, has been made a G.C.M.G.; and Mr. J.S.D. Thompson (Minister of Justice for Canada), Mr. J.S. Winter (Attorney-General of Newfoundland), and Mr. J.H.G. Bergne (superintendent of the Treaty Department of the Foreign-office) C.M.G's for services in connection with the Fisheries Convention.
The death, at the age of eighty seven, is announced of Colonel Herbert Mends, of Shepherd's-bush-green. The gallant officer entered the army so far back as 1822, having served as midshipman in the Royal Navy during the years 1812-14 in North and South America. For some years he served at every British possession in Western Africa.
The Reverend John Fallowfield Longrigg died suddenly on Saturday evening, aged thirty, at the County Hotel, Lancaster. A few months ago the rev. gentleman had resigned the vicarage of Emmanuel, Leeds, on account of his health; but he was fairly well till Wednesday, when hurrying to the railway station brought on hemorrhage.
Mrs. Charles Turner, of Liverpool, has placed at the disposal of the Archbishop of York the sum of 20,000 pounds towards the creation of a fund for assisting with pensions the clergy of the diocese who may have become unfit for the discharge of their duties through infirmity. Mrs. Turner made an equal gift to Liverpool some time ago for the same benevolent purpose.
The tithe agitation shows increasing bitterness at Brynterifife. The bailiffs had seized a trap and harness belonging to two brothers named Davies, farmers. The carriage could not be taken far the same night, so the officials locked it up in an adjacent coachhouse. On going to the house next morning the bailiffs found that the lock had been smashed and the carriage taken away, and it has not since been heard of. At Whitland a still more serious state of things prevails. Two haystacks had been seized on Blaenywain, which, it is said, belonged to the incoming tenant, but which, nevertheless, were seized and sold in the usual manner. Both haystacks have now been fired and burnt to the ground. They were worth between 15 pounds and 20 pounds.
The Earl of Crawford and Balcarres has offered the entire equipment of his observatory at Dunecht, Aberdeenshire, to the Royal Observatory at Edinburgh, on condition that that institution shall remain in charge of the Crown, instead of being transferred to Edinburgh University. The Dunecht establishment is the most complete of the kind in Scotland. Besides a very fine collection of astronomical apparatus, it includes a meteorological section, a physical laboratory, and a library of fifteen thousand volumes. The instruments, which have been accumulating for sixteen years, comprise a 15-inch refractor by Grubb, a 12-inch silvered glass reflector, by Browning, a meridian circle by Simms, and several other telescopes. Of the spectroscopes, one is described as undoubtedly the finest in the world. There is also a great electromagnet, which is said to have no equal anywhere. The collection includes many other instruments, both astronomical, meteorological, and electrical, and all are in excellent working order, as Lord Crawford has for many years maintained an efficient staff in the observatory, under the superintendence of Dr. Ralph Copeland.
A meeting of the National League was held yesterday in Sackville-street, Dublin. Mr. Crilly, M.P., who presided, said Mr. Parnell was playing a waiting game, and the National leaders desired to prove to the world that the Irish people, when necessary, could display that doggedness, patience, and quietness which would in the end bring to Ireland the great blessing for which they were all striving. They had determined that the Irish people should, for the sake of their English allies, put up with the atrocities and infamies of the Government. If it was necessary that the Irish race should show their courage and determination the leaders were assured that the people would act as bravely and as fiercely as they did in '98, or at any other period. (Cheers.) Mr. Sheehy, M.P., said he should preach to the tenants to pay the baker, the shopkeeper, and any other man to whom they owed money, and then, if they had anything left to give the landlord, let them pay their rents. If the tenants had decided that they would not pay any rent for ten years, he was not prepared to say they were acting dishonestly. (Cheers.) They were dealing with robbers, and they should give them as little money as possible. (Cheers.) He would, however, ask them to do nothing violent. The landlords and the Tory Government had been rejoicing at the evictions and prosecutions of the last fortnight, but he would tell the landlords that they were bringing the crowbar brigade to their own doors, and that many a proud mansion today holding the rejoicing and evicting landlord would yet come down level to the dust before the power of the Irish people. (Cheers.)
The inquest on the three young women who were killed by an explosion at Cadwell's fireworks factory on the 3rd ult. was concluded yesterday. The jury, after deliberating for an hour and a half, returned the following verdict:
That the deceased came to their deaths by an explosion at Cadwell's toy factory which occurred in the cutting shed, and was brought about by one of the caps exploding by being cut.
They added, as a rider, that Mr. Cadwell should be severely censured for the very careless way in which he had carried out his manufacture, and also that the local inspector was deserving of censure for not reporting upon the crude utensils used by Mr. Cadwell, especially the dipper.
Yesterday another adjourned inquest was also finished - that on the Rev. Francis Douglas Eyre, eighty-six, who had died at Twickenham on the 4th inst. He graduated from Christ College, Cambridge, in 1828, was ordained in 1832, and was curate of Faversham and chaplain of the union from 1847 to 1853. He had of late shown symptoms of insanity, being under the impression that every one wished to poison him. After his death marks of violence were found upon his body; but the jury, after a lengthened inquiry, returned a verdict to the effect that the deceased died from want of nutrition due to his own wilful abstinence from food, and that he was of unsound mind at the time of such abstinence.
Yesterday an inquest was held at Deptford on the body of a carman named Landry, forty-three, who had been in the employ of Mrs. Ansell, of Well-street, E., and who had met with his death from falling off his van. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death, but added a rider strongly condemning the practice of keeping carmen at work for twenty hours continuously, and considered that the death of the deceased was nothing more than might have been expected after such long hours.
With regard to the latest Whitechapel murder a discovery which may prove of importance was made yesterday afternoon. A trail of blood was found distinctly marked for a distance of five or six feet in the direction of the backdoor of 25, Hanbury-street, next door but one to where the murder took place. The appearances suggested that the murderer had, after his crime, passed through or over the dividing fence between Nos. 29 and 27, and thence into the garden of No. 25. On the wall of the last house was a curious mark, between a smear and a sprinkle, as if, alarmed by the blood-soaked state of his coat, he had taken it off, and knocked it against the wall. Abutting on the end of the yard at No. 25 are the works of Mr. Bailey, a packing-case maker. In the yard of this establishment, in an out-of-the-way corner, the police yesterday found some crumpled paper, stained with blood. It is supposed that the murderer found the paper in the yard of No. 25, wiped his hands with it, and threw it over the wall into Mr. Bailey's premises. As we have noticed, a search has been made for a man who has gone by the name of "Leather Apron." One man arrested on suspicion of being the same is called Piser, who was arrested on Monday at the house of his step-brother in Mulberry-street, Commercial-road. He and his friends, however, protested that he was not the man who had gone by this name, though a detective declares that he has known him under the name. Yesterday a half-Spaniard and half-Bulgarian, who gave the name of Emanuel Delbast Violenia, stated that early last Saturday morning, in Hanbury-street, he noticed a man and woman quarrelling in a very excited manner. Violenia distinctly heard the man threaten to kill the woman by sticking a knife into her. They passed on, and Violenia went to his lodging. Yesterday afternoon a dozen men, the greater portion of whom were Jews, were placed with Piser in the yard of the Leman-street police-station. Violenia was then brought up into the yard. Having keenly scrutinised all the faces before him, he at once, without any hesitation or doubt whatever, went up to Piser and identified him as the man whom he heard threaten a woman on the night of the murder. Piser, who has not been allowed to have communication with any of his friends, was then taken back to the station-house. It is believed that Violenia was unable to identify the body of the woman. Subsequent cross-examination is said to have wholly discredited his evidence. A reward of 100 pounds for the discovery of the murderer is offered by Mr. Montagu, M.P. for the constituency.
A local schoolmaster named James Morgan has been arrested at Cardiff on a charge of murdering his wife. It is stated that they had lived unhappily for several years, and that latterly both of them had given way to drink. It is suspected that poison was the agent employed.
