LONDON , August II. The queen In the
course of her speech proroguing parliament ,
said : "When you atsembled in October , I in
formed you that an expedition waa advancing
up tha valley of the Nile to relieve Khartoum ,
Thrco mouths later , with deep sorrow , which
was shared by all my people , I learned that
Iho expedition arrived too late. The heroic
Gordon with companions had fallen and
my troops were ultimately with ,
drawn from whole eastern Soudan except
Suakim , nnd from western Soudan down to
Alashyart. Although the objects of thla expedition -
pedition were uuattained , I have great reason
to ba proud of the bravery and endurance
displayed by tha soldiers aud Bailers , ncd tha
skill wherewith they have been commanded. "
Referring to the present situation In Kgypt
her majesty s y : "Tha death uf El Muhdl
will probably f liable mo to perform with lest
difficulty the duties toward the ruler and people
ple of Egypt , which ovonta Imposed upon mo ,
I eholl not relax ( llorta to place the government
and Rood order In that couutry upon a firm
foundation. " Continuing , eho says :
"My'relations with other oowera are of a
friendly .nature. Difficulties which wore atone
ono time of au anxiou * character , arose be
tween my government and Ilusaia , concarn-
Ingtho limits of the territory of my ally , the
ameer cf Afghanistan. Tlio negatiatlnna for
their adjustment continue , and vlll , I trust ,
load , at an early period , to a satisfactory set
tlement. Tha progress of events in South
Africa compelled mo , In tha interests of the
native raced , to toke under my protection
Ucchmnal and certain adjacent territories I
am taking the necotsary stops to place the
northwcatarn frontier of my Indian empire In
a condition uf adequate defento In the absence
of which the property nnd tranquillty of _ my
Indian subjfeta nro liable from time to time
to bo intemipiodnnd disturbed , " In closing ,
her majesty says : "I pray the blessing of
God may rest upon the people's
extended liberties and that numbers who am
called upon to exercise new powers will use
themwitb sobriety and discernment , which
have so lone marked the history oE thla na
tion. "

mons to-day , b f ro prorogation , Churchill ,

withdraw the commission. Col , Ridgway ,
chief of the commission , and others connected
with him were doing useful work. The dis
pute with Russia about Znlficar pass , the
secretary said , waa not trivial , but tha gov
ernment was not altogether without hope to
arrive before long at a satisfactory eettloment
of the point In dispute.

when nn officer ia relieved for proper reasons ,

riends are very apt to think that because ho
loea not like removal , that Eomo personal in-
nry Is cast upon his character or his services ,
iuito the contrary. Kemovala nnd appoint

and cent to a white regiment , ia denied , The
general eays tbo war department knowa no
difference between the status of white and
colored soldiers ; thit they are on a perfect
equality before the law ; that they are equally
entrusted with the keeping of the flag and
with the honor of the country , nnd it ii aa
mportant that the colored regiments thould
M well officered nnd well led on all occasions
as other regiments. While under the law
; hey are maintained as a part of the army of
; ho United States , the eecretary of war can
know no inequality and it ia his duty ( p assign
officers to tntin upon the same principles
which govern assignments of all officers. The
good of the so : vice , the provision of the law ,
: ho discipline of theaimy ! , and the unhesita
ting obedience to orders , demand that officers
shtuld acquiesce when assigned to such a
regiment. ,

Phyaick Brinckle has just been released from

extraordinary charge of "extravagance and
eccentricity. " She H the daughter of the
late Dr. William Draper Brinckle , n physl-
ctrnn who enjoyed a largo practice , and moved
tn the highest circles of society hero twenty
years ago. Miaa Brinckle was an acknowl
edged belle , a woman of great beauty and ac
complishments , and a popular favorite. She
was extremely extravagant , bat an uofortu-
natadrop in the financial standing of her
father made It Impoatlblo for him to pay her

Adrlana was unable to overcome her ex
travagant tastes , and without knowing any
thing of the law In such casei , ordered a
piano and a set of furniture , which eho sold
before paying for them This proceeding
scandalized the set to which the Brinckles
belonged , and aa it was stated at the time ,
Miis Brincklo was sent to nn aaylum.enterlnp
tbo institution in July , 1858. When the
twelfth national conference of charities and
conection mat In Waibington last June , one

C , Baker , ox-mlnlstor of justice of South
Australia , who arrived hero via the last Aus
tralian ttoamor , en route to London , WAS In
terviewed by the Kxamlner on tha probabili
ties ol the withdrawal of the Pacific Mall
steamers , and ( aid ; "It Is precisely upon the
matter relating to this that I nm niw going to
London , I have been cnnmlssloncd by tin
Austiallan colonies to po and consult with the
homo government relative to an agreement
which has been drawn up , by
which the IKndlah-American mail
service c. n bo let to any steamship com *
pany. The agreement ralorrcd to has been
signed by North Australia , Norr South Wales
and Victoria , and I have roinnn to believe
TaMiianis , Quecnstown and West Australia
will tign it. Whether Now Zealand will dote
to is doubtful Tha proposal it to pay the
steamship company so much per pound for
mall matter. The contract will call for a
weekly mall of twenty-nine , thirty or thirty-
ono days , from London to Adelaide. The
English companies taking the mails via Suez
rocalvo a subsidy of ? l000,000 a year. Tho'r
contracts expire in September , 18S7. The
now KRrcement would cotmnocea on that
date. "
Mr , Baker added thn Canadian Pacific had
offered to provide weekly Enqlleh-Auatralian ,
thirty-day mail service , via Vancouver Island ,
for 1100,000 per year , and aa the colonloa
wore nou paying twice that sum it waa possi
ble the Canadian Pacific would secure it , The
probabilltioi of their doing so would , ho f aid ,
ba increased if the Cmadiau government sub
sidized a line of steamers between British
Columbia and Australia , which , ho under
stood , was intended to do.
