It was notified in the Gazette last evening that Mr. James Monro, C.B., Assistant Commissioner of Police of the metropolis, had resigned, and that he is to be succeeded by Mr. Robert Anderson, LL.D., barrister-at-law.

The announcement of Mr. Monro's resignation, writes the London correspondent of the Birmingham Post, has created much surprise. Mr. Monro was Sir Charles Warren's right-hand man, and it was he who uncovered the dynamite conspiracy, and secured the punishment of the conspirators. More than that, the knowledge he possessed of the working of the Clan-na-Gael enabled him to checkmate its movements. Some months ago he was able to frighten a dynamitard out of Paris and back to America by revealing to him a knowledge of all the circumstances connected with the mission on which he was employed. It was for his services to the public in this particular direction that Mr. Monro was created a C.B. No intimation had been made that he was about to retire, and it is possible that things are not working so smoothly at Scotland-yard as they might. If Sir Charles Warren lost the services also of Chief Superintendent Dunlop and Detective Inspector Littlechild he would probably find himself in difficulties. The public can ill afford to lose the services of men whose special knowledge, acquired by experience, is of the first importance.
