Mrs. Lloyd is eligible for a pension, which will be awarded to her in the course of a few days. The rate will be fixed, provisionally, in accordance with the scale shown in the White Paper of November last, at 9s. a week. The instalment of her late husband's pension (£11 17s. 6d.) in respect of the quarter ending on the 31st proximo is duo to his legal representatives, and arrangements are being made to effect payment accordingly
