Victoria, Jan. 18.���Lieutenant Governor
Dewdney this afternoon opened in due form
the last session uf tne sixth Parliament of
British Columbia. The attendance was
larger and more brilliant* than in any recent
year, and ceremonies more elaborate. His
honor enlered at 3 o'clock attended by the
uniformed staff and proceeded to read the
Speech from tbe Throne.
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legislative
Assembly:
I have much pleasure in meeting you
again in this your fourth Seasiou for tne dispatch nf thu business of ihe country.
The meabure nt Keiiisliimittnu, which was
necessarily pcsipuned on account of imperfect census returns, will be introduced
during the preseut Session for your consideration.
Acting under the authority conferred by
the "Railway MA Act" of fast Session, a
guarantee of interest has been given in favor
of the Nakusp and Slocan Railway Company, and I am glad to state that the work
oi construction has been vigorously pushed,
and the line will be in running order during
the present year, so that the valuable trade
of the Slocan region will be attracted towards the mercantile centres of the Province. |
In arranging under your authority, the
details of the agreement with the Company
I Luvd le.eived the alternative light of
guaranteeing the bonds of the Company,
both as to principle aud interest. By adopt-
ing this plan ihe bonds can be sold for a
higher price, and considerable economy
effected. Your attention will be asked to a
measure with this object. Papers upon the
subject will be laid before yon.
1 am happy to inform you that following
upon your former legislation the Nelson and
Fort Sheppard Railway has been nearly
completed and is now running, thus materially assisting in the general development
of the Province.
Notwithstanding the reduction in the
market price of silver, tbe mines of the
West Kootenay District, in oonsequenoe of
the dish grade of thru* oit,s, have shown a
healthy development.
In Cariboo and other portions of the Province, marked attention has been given to
hydraulic mining, and important works are
being undertaken in that direotion.
The coal minesof the Province have shorn
an output of 977,260 tons, being an increase
of 152,925 tone over last year.
The agricultural and horticultural reports
from the various districts show a satisfactory improvement both as to the area under
culiivation and the modes of culture.
Our Fishing Industry, a great source of
wealth to ihe Province, has produced results
larger than in any previous year. The question as to the jurisdiction of the Dominion
Government to grant licences for and to
regulate fishing in Provincial waters, is
about to be submitted to the Supreme Court
of Canada, I shall take care that the interests of this Proviuce are properly represented before that tribunal.
In view of the discoveries of gold in the
Alberni District during the past year, and
claims to the precious metals within the
railway lands upon Vancouver Island having
been advanced by the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway Company, a special case raising
the point has been referred to the Supreme
Court for decision.
A suitable site for the "Provisional
Home," the establishment of which was
authorized by you, has beeu purchased at
Kamloops, plans have been prepared for the
building, and tenders for construction will
shortly be called for.
Although the past year has been one of
great commercial depression throughout the
world, the Revenue of the Province has
closely approximated the estimate, notwithstanding the diversion of considerable sums
to newly formed Municipalities.
The three per cent, lnau authorized for
the construction of new Legislative and
Departmental Buildings by the "Parliament
Buildings Act" was placed upon the money
mmrket and brought 02 per cent, of par
value, an appreciable and gratifying increase in the value nf Provinoial securities.
Contracts fur the buildings have been
awarded, and the work is now in progress.
The Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure for the coming year will be laid before
you at an early date, and it is trusted that
they will be fonnd to have beeu prepared
with a due regard to economy and the
requirements of the public service. In deliberating upon the items of expenditure
you will be asked to consider the justice of
aiding Township Municipalities by expenditures upon trunk roads.
The long-standing dispute with the Dominion Government on the subject of the
title to the railway lands upon the Main-
laud aud the method of dealing with them
was not brought before the Courts during
the last year. Negotiations looking towards
au amicable settlement are pending, the
successful result of which would obviate the
necessity of a reference to a judicial tribunal; and I hope tube able to make an
announcement upon this subject during the
Session.
Investigation into tho census returns,
made for the purpose of securing data for
the Redistribution Bill to be submitted to
you, has disclosed the fact that several tribes
of Indians were unvisited by the census en-
"  THE
umerator*, and that no allowance for their
cumbers has been made in arriving at the
total population of the Province, as shown
by the census. I have caused representations upon this subject to be made to the
Dominion Government.
You will be   asked   to   consider   amendments to I he Drainage,  Dyking and Irriga- j
tion Act, so as to facilitate suitable guaran-
tecs being given by the  Government   under.
proper conditions, snd a's** an   Act   providing that the measurement of timber shall lie

Montreal, Jan. IS.���There was an immense throug ot people iu court to-day to
hear the sentence io the case of Mercier,
Pelland aud Demai tigny, the three young
men who attempted to blow up the Nelson
monument. Judge Dugas in delivering his
judgment said that he was placed in a peculiar position. He was positive that had the
accused known what damage to life and
property they might have caused, bad their
conducted by officers appointed by the Gov-1 plans been  carried out, they would have at*

I now leave you to your deliberations,
trusting that Providenco will so order your
labours that they may prove permanently
beneficial to all classes of our people.
The formal resolutions with regard to , he
speech followed, consideration being set as
usual for Monday. The reply will be moved
by William Williams, Oarriboo's new member, and seconded by D. M. Eberts, Victoria district. At the opening of the house
there was a full represen ation of members,
Mr. Booth, (the Islands) alone beiug absent.
Before the house adjourned this afternoon
Premier Davie introduced a bill to exempt
property of lodgers from distraint for landlords liabilities, this being a grievance under existing law about which much complain! has frequently been expressed.
Colonel Baker has also given notice of a
resolution favoring bim't *lli��*m ��rd pn-Jor*'-
ing the coinage of unlimited quantities of
silver at the Government mints.
Agreed to Arbitrate.
Rio Janeiro, Jan.   18.���It  is  reported
here that the Government and the insurgent
leaders have agreed to uubmit their difficul
ties to arbitrators for settlement.
by the prompt action of the governor in
cabling the true facts of the case to London.
At this time, said his honor, there too many
socialists in the world just waiting to applaud any such acts. Judge Dugas then
imposed a fine of $20 in each case.
Tbe Bank Note Circulation.
Washington, Jan. 18.���The National
Bank Note circulation, which reached $209,-
500,000 during the money stringency last
summer, has declined to $204,300,000 and is
daily growing smaller. During December it
decreased $2,422,1)00, aud so far this month,
$1,303,000 in lawful money to redeem the
bank notes when presented, has been deposited in the treasury. By law the reduction of bank note circulation is limited to
$3,000,000 a month.

Fifty Hen KUled.
London, Jan. 18. ��� A despatch from
Aucuus Ayres says: "Fifty men were killed
on January 15th, in an indecisive bombardment of the Nic*heroy by the insurgent
warships." *
Another despatch received from Buenos
Ayres this evening says; "It is stated that
President Peixoto is becoming suspicious of
the fidelity of his troops. It is reported
that the insurgents have captured Paran-
agua, and the port of Curitaba.
Tbe Universal Unemployed.
Berlin, Jan. 18.���The Klein Journal
published an account of the trouble between
the police and unemployed workmen, which
it says was reported by an eye witness. It
charges that the action of the police in
attacking the crowd was without cause.
The unemployed who had gone to the
brewery to attend the proposed meeting
were leaving the building, after having
learned that the meeting would not be held.
As was natural they gathered in groups to
discuss the situation, and a few lingered
near the exits.
They showed no lawless intent; in faci
many of those abdut thebrewery were mere
onlookers and were of the better clafs. Col.
Von Egidy, the anti-semitic politician, was
present He had a narrow escape from being clubbed by two over-zealous policemen.
Many who sought shelter in courtyards or
hallways were followed by the police and
were arrested. At 7 o'olook the city was
quiet. 	
A Host Abandoned Lot.
Rome, Jan. 18.���The correspondent of
the United P-fess returned to-day from Carrara and Massa Di Carrari where the state
of siege has been proclaimed owing to the
attempts of anarchists to start a revolution
in the district. He found both towns somewhat more animated than usual, although
trade has been resumed and public confidence seems to have been restored. Cavalrymen incessantly ride through the towns and
infantry with fixed bayonets patrol
the streets. All soldiers on duty
in     the     towns       have       orders       to
Srevent groups from gathering iu the streets.
Aerythiug that could be learned during a
short sojourn in the towrs went to show the
wisdom of tho government in decreeing the
state of siege. The recent outbreaks in
several parts of the country were due undoubtedly to anarch's! propaganda as Dre-
nner Crispi said. Th* anarchists selected
Carrara and Massa D, (!*irar�� for their most
comprehensive plot be. .use there they found
the most advantageous conditions. The
workers in the marble quarries are the most
abandoned lot of laborers iu Italy.
Lo Bengula Licks tbe Dust.
Cape Town, Jan. 18.���Advices from Buluwayo are to the effect that according to
latest reports. King Lo Bengula is anxious
to surrender and has killed the Iuduna who
persuaded him to retreat and to countenance the attack upou Captain Wilson
near the Shangani river. The destruction
of the Wilson party has been for sometime,
if is said, Lo Bengula's only reason for not
yielding, for he fears that the British might
try to take revenge on him for Wilson's
death.
Admiral Hello Enlisting Convicts.
Lisiikn, Jan. 18,���The steamship Sorata,
which sailed from Kio Janeiro on January
2nd, arrived here today. The officers confirm the report that A Imiral Mello, nn the
Aquidaban, visited the convict island Fer-
nan Noorhu, enlisting many of the released
prisoners, and took all ihe available provisions away except enough to feed for five
days those remaining on the island.
When the Sorata sailed, the officers say,
general opinion credited the insurgent General Saraiva, with having about /*,000 excel
lent troops at Sao Paulo and some 9,000
more on their way by sea from Rio Grande
do Sul. These 9,000 men were to be landed
at Sepetiba Bay, just south of Rio, and
were to be used in isolating the city from
the interior. The government had seized
the Portuguese steamship Itaifa, owned by
Lage Bros., al Rio Graude do Sul, had
armed hor and placed its own men aboard
her.
The Portuguese crew, after abandoning
the ship, claimed the protection of the Portuguese naval commander. At Rio, fort
Santa Cruz fired two shells which struck in
the wator near the Sorata. The officers of
the steamship experienced no trouble, however, in landing the passengers aud mails
under the white flag.
Quebec's  Parliament.
Montreal, Que., Jan. 18.���It is reported
here on good authority that parliament will
meet on March 15th. The only business to
be transacted is the insolvency act.
Hrs. Maybriok Cuta Herself With Glass.
Washington, Jan. 18.���Unofficial information has been received in Washington of
another incident in connection with the imprisonment of Mr*>. M��ybrlck, th�� AmeWpaiL
woman serving life sentence in England for
the poisoning of her husband in Liverpool
The report comes from government sources,
in London but appears to have been carefully concealed from publicity there.
The stoiy as reoeived here, has it, that
Mrs. Maybrick was discovered bleeding
profusely, and I hat she claimed to have had
hemorrhage. The prisou officials, however, reported to the Government that she
had deliberately cut herself internally with
glass. 	
A Wreck in tbe China Sea.
San Francisco, Jan. 18.���The SS. China
brings particulars of the wreck of the SS.
Normandy off Bentang island in the China
sea.
In about one hour after the vessel struck,
the passengers and crew took to the boats
and attempted to wash ashore As they
neared laud, the sea became terribly rough
and the captain's boat capsized, resulting in
the loss of Captain Selkirk, his child and
one of the crew.
All the rest were saved after being in the
boats about six hours. Harold M. Sewell,
U. S. Consul to Samoa, and his wife were
among tbe passengers.
Nearly 3,000 meu were employed in the
park to-dry. The fund being subscribed for
the relief of the unemployed amounts to
$40,000.       	
Comments in the Senate.
Washington, Jan. 18���The proposed
issue of five per cent, bonds was the subject
of two resolutions offered iu the Senate this
morning by two populist senators and was
subsequently referred to in a discussion on a.
bill, not even remotely connected with it.
The resolutions came from Senators Peffer
(Kansas), Allen (Nebraska), and were to the
effect, that there is no lawful authority for
the issuing and selling of bonds as proposed,
and if so issued and sold, I hey will be null
and void. The resolutions were laid over
and will come up for action next week.
The question was again touched upon in
connection with a bill appropriating $40,000
for an equestrian statue in Manchester, N.
H., to a revolutionary hero, Gen. John
Stark. Mr. Morgan, (Democrat, Alabama),
said tbat the Government was actually too
poor to honor the memory ot heroic ancestors, when they had to borrow at five per
cent.
"On a questionable use of the statutes,"
Mr. Stewart, (Republican, Nevadi) spoke
of the bond issue as a war measure although
there was uo enemy in sight. The invisible
enemy being the money power and Mr.
Darnel, (Drinocrat, Va.,) spoke of tha treasury d* feet r-s likely to be continued and in-
ore*"-i'I fir some years by "the scheme of
taxai oj which bad been proposed," plainly
alluding to the Wilson tariff bill.
The Stark monument bill was nassed. and
then Mr. Vest (Democrat; Mo.), spoke in
favor of the House bill to repeal the.Federal
Election Laws. The Senate adjourned at
3:16 p m., till Monday.

NANAIMO, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1894.
MITCHELL   vs.   MITCHELL.
The Duval Athletic Club Asserts That
the Corbett-Mitehell Contest WiU Come
Off on January 25th.
Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 18.���The Duval Athletic Club make this their final and
most positive announcement that the Corbett-Mitchell contest will take place on
January 25th, 1894. "Reports have been
sent out that Governor Mitchell has ordered
troops to Jacksonville for the sole purpose
of suppressing the contest. .Notwithstand
ing these reports the club reiterates i!s pant
assertions, and Jor weeks has heen arrang
ing for an emergency of this kind, sh iiltl
the     troops     be      sent      here. While
the club does .not believe that
any violence would be participated in hy
them, yet we will not subject our patrons
to the slightest danger of any kind S"
thorough and complete are our arrangements, thai should an emergencv of any
kind arise on the morning of the 25th, we
aie pre prepared to handle 6000 people wiih
the greatest convenience. Tnis will be no
Richburg affair, where the people were subjected to a long, tedious and hot ride, but
it will be done as quietly and conveniently
as though it occurred in the arena now
ready for this contest. Once more we say
to all friends and lovers of boxing, if you
are in Jacksonville on the 24h of January,
1894, and care to seetheCorbett and Mitch
ell contest, you can do so after arrang ng
for the necessary tickets. Signed, "Duval
Athletic Club."
The Two Pugulist's to be Tcnt-circused.
The above statement by the club means
that the fight will he fought in the woods
where the United Press correspondent announced it would have to take place weeks
ago. Everything now depends on the
ability of the promoters of the fight to keep
the place selected, a secret from the authorities, for, if it be known, Governor Mitchell
will undoubtedly have troops on the scene.
It is understood that the club people have
purchased a large circus tent capable of
holding 6,000 people and will bring lhe men
together under the canvas.
Corbett Corroborates.
The following statement from Corbett has
also been given out: "May Port, Fla., Jan.
17.���I take this opportunity of informing
my friends throughout the country, that I
have received assurances from the Duval
Athletic Club to-day, which warrant me in
saying that the contest between Charles
Mitchell and myself will positively take
place in Jacksonville, or in that city's immediate vioinity, on Jan. 25th. Probably
both of the principals will appear in the
ring." (Signed )
James J. Corbett.

A Pleasing Pointer from "Printers' Ink."
Did you ever hear of a plaoe called Naaaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of the Daily
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia,
and ask for a sample copy of his paper, and
when you obtain it compare it with your
home production. Go down and talk with
the publisher about it afterwards, and ask
him why it is that he can't print as good ^
paper, or obtain as good a local patronage,
or have his paper as free from dead-head or
objectionable advertisements? A useful
lesson may be learned from Nanaimo.���

THE SPEECH FROM THE THRONE.
The session of the Provinoial Legislature
was opened yesterday afternoon by the
Lieutenant-Governor with the usual ceremonies. Particulars of the event will be
found in another column. The speech from
the throne is a businesslike document, and
will be read with interest. The bill of fare
promised is not very extensive, but we doubt
not it will give rise to plenty of debate
The redistribution measure, which was
postponed from last session for want of
sufficient information regarding the census
returns, will be submitted this session. The
measure will doubtless give rise to prolonged
debate. We believe it is the intention of
the Government to bring in a bill that will
do substantial justice to all sections of the
province, but we do not believe that they
will succeed in pleasing everybody. Still
less do we believe that the bill brought
down by the (Jovernment, or any other that
they could introduce, will give satisfaction
to the so-called Independents of the Brown-
Cotton faction. To oppose and denounce
and misrepresent everything that the Government does, aud everything that its
members say, appears to oe lhe mission of
these men, and it must be confessed that
they ful61 their mission with zeal, if not
with good judgement and honesty. Neither
of these qualities is to be expected of them,
and it would be impossible to satisfy them.
We think, however, that the bill to be introduced by the Government will be found
on examination to give satisfaction to the
people at large, and that is a matter of more
importance than to try to satisfy chronic
grumblers, who are forever finding fault and
refusing to be atatittied.
It will be seen that the Government announces that it has given a guarantee of
interest under the Railway Aid Act of last
session in favor of the Nakusp and Slocan
Railway Company, and that a measure connected therewith will be submitted. It is
hoped hy the building of this road, which it
is expected will be finished this year, and
by the construction of the Nelson and Fort
Sheppard line, now nearly finished, that the
general development of the province, and
especially of the Kootenay distriot, will be
greatly promoted. The coal mines of the
province are referred to, the figures quoted
showing a marked increase in the output for
the past year. There is every probability
that the output for the present year will
show a still more marked increase. The
great success of our fishiog industries during the past year is also mentioned. The
reference to the revenue of the province
will be read with general satisfaction. Notwithstanding the commercial
depression which has prevailed throughout
the world, the revenue of British Columbia
last year closely approximated the estimate.
The three per cent, loan for the new parliament buildings has been placed at an
average of 92 per ceut. of par value, which
shows how high thecreditof BritishColumbia
now stands in the London money market.
The estimates of income and expenditure
for the comng y-ar are promised al linearly
date,and attention is drawn to the propriety
of aiding township municipalities by expenditures on trunk roads. The House will be
asked to consider amendments to the Drainage, Dyking, and Irrigation Act, with a
view to facilitate guarantees being given by
���Government under proper conditi ns. A
bill is promised providing for the measurement of timber by Government officers; also
bills on several legal questions, a bill imposing succession duties, and an act dealing
with the labor bureau.
The foregoing comprehends the greater
part of the legislative programme for the
coming session. It is not too extensive;
there iB therefore the better hope that it
will all be carried out. The programme too,
it will be observed, is in all respects a practical one. On the whole we think the
Lieut.-Governor's speech will be read with
general satisfaction, except by factious persons whom nothing coming from the Government would please. Such persons will
doubtless find plenty to carp at in the
speech from the throne, as they are sure to
do in the policy of the Government, no
matter what it may be.
HARD TIMES AND TARIFF REFORM.
The commercial depreasion of 1893 in the
United Statea has been severe beyond precedent, at least during the life of the pre-
���eat generation.  The Weekly Trade Review,
which is recognized as an authority on
questions relating to commerce and manufactures, estimates the total loss in that
country during the past year at $1,754,-
596,816, a sum not far from as great as the
cost to the United States of the war of
secession. The chief difference seems to be
that in the commercial storm of last year no
gunpowder was burned, and but few lives
loBt. But few, we Bay, for some have
doubtless lost their lives as well as their
fortunes through failure and disappointment,
and misery and want have been spread
broadcast over a hitherto prosperous land.
The number of idle workmen in the United
States at present has been estimated at upwards of 800,0110, and probably exceeds a
million. The want and misery that must
needs arise from this source alone exceeds
all computation.
Ardent politicians on the Republican
side attribute all the evil to
the change of administration and the threatened revolution of the trade policy of the
country. But impartial observers will not
say so, although it cannot be denied that it
is a most dangerous matter to change the
established trade policy of a great nation,
the work requires to be done with card and
circumspection, and is not one to be entered
on with a light heart. Reform of the tariff,
we believe, should be gradual, and the work
should be spread over a number of years,
especially when so radical a change as one
from high protection to free trade is contemplated. The proposed changes in the
tariff, when such are intended to be made,
should not too long be kept matters of uncertainty and speculation. Manufacturers
and all others concernedBhould know aB soon
as possible what ti expect, and then they
would be able to govern themselves accordingly. While they are kept in a Btato of
doubt no revival of trade can be expected.
At the same time the changes ought not to
be revolutionary at first. When the people
demand a change of trade policyas they have
done in the United States and as they are
doing in Canada, let a moderate change be
tried to begin with; then if further ehange
in the same direction is thought to be needed
and is demanded, it can be made later.
This we think iB the safest course to pursue,
and let the proposed changes be made known
without unnecessary delay.
At the same time frequent tinkering with
the tariff iB to be avoided. Tariff changes
always disorganise commerce, and hinder
trade and manufacturing industries���in fact
paralyze both. Change in the tariff is therefore an evil in itself and ought aa far as possible to be avoided. In the United States
it is hoped that the trouble is nearly over.
The New York Herald has been discussing
the question. On 1 his point it speaks as
follows;
"The new year holds out better things.
The currency is now on a sound basis, and a
rational revision of the tariff promises to
stimulate our industries and equalize the
burdens of taxation. Bubbles have been
pricked and business is on a bed rock basis.
Wall street has had such a "housecleaning"
as was never before known and the ground
everywhere has been cleared for new enterprises. The great natural resources of the
country are unimpaired, the indomitable
energy of its people remains undiminished,
and nothing but a revival of confidence is
needed to inaugurate a period of new and
lasting prosperity."
It is to be hoped that the Herald is right
in its anticipation, and that trade and manu
factures will both shortly revive in the
United States. The connection of Canada
with the States is so intimate that hard
times there are always more or leas reflected
here. Independently altogether of neighborly good will, this consideration is sufficient to make Canadians earnestly wish that
the commercial depression in the United
States may soon pasB away, and prosperity
be restored. It has been justly claimed for
Canada that there has been no such bard
times here as there has been there. But
Canada would be more prosperous than ahe
is if good times once more prevailed in the
United States. The prosperity of the people of that country is, therefore, a matter of
interest to every Canadian.
A despatch from Perth, in Western
Australia, to the Melbourne Age, of December 9th, which is just to hand, states that
intelligence received on the 8th from Coolgardie gives the gratifying news that a
heavy thunderstorm had occurred there,
and that rain had fallen covering the whole
district. Rock holes, soaks and tanks had
all been filled with water. It was expected
that a furl her effort would at onoe be made
lo prospect the outlying districts. Thia
newB will everywhere be receivud with
niu**h satisfaction. The fall of rain reported
pra it ically sett Ies the question of the water
supply of tho Coolgardie gold field, which is
said to be so rich. All they have to do is to
construct reservoirs all over the district at
suitable pointB, using the present aupply to
enable men to do so, and wait till the first
rain comes lo fill ihem. They cau then proceed to gather the gold of the district at
their leisure. The gold now being diacover-
ed in Western Australia and in South Africa
may in no long time make gold so plenty
that the equilibrium will once more be established between it and the white metal,
and the silver question settled in the best
possible way, This, too, would put an end
to the bad times on three continents���Europe, America and Australia.

All day Monday until the evening was
growing old a "liviog gale" made the signs

the storm being one of the most violent in
months, the gale, which had played sad
riot with telegraph and electric light, wires,
having also demoralized the telephone service and cut off all communication with the
meteorological station at Esquimalt. The
only telegraph wire working was that to
Otter Point, and it was very "buggy," in
the classic vernacular of the se* vice. From
the Spring Ridge district last evening came
sad tales of falling fences and chimneys, two
woodsheds and one stable in ruins. The

an unusual height and dashing their spray

A meeting was held at Duncan's on Saturday as to the state of the Cowichan river.
Rev. D. Holmes occupied the chair, and
about one hundred inhabitants were present. Several interesting facts were brought

feet of logs have to be tun down the Cowichan river from the timber limits at Cowichan lake, irrespective of the Nitinat
country, which is also naturally tributary to
the Cowichan river. A long discussion took
place as to the improvements necessary for
making the running of logs more economical
snd sure, and for protecting the land on the
banks, in which Premier Davie, Andrew

has been thoroughly discussed at this meeting, the matter be now left in the habds of
our representatives in the local House for
them to take whatever measures may be

The only man of genius of the  Victorian
age of English literature who was a bad hus
band was Charles Dickens who was deliberately seperated from  the wife of  his youth
aud poverty after she had borne him seven
children, not because she had any mental j
infirmity or had disgraced him in any way,'
but simply, as  Diokens says with coarse
frankness in his published  letter  concerning it,  because  "Mrs. Dickens,  though an j
amiable and excellent woman, bored  him."
in other words, the genius of Dick ens carried I
him into circles where his wife could not go,   q<i.       -, -r     ,-���
and he grew rapidly in mind and tastes ODinglBS, J-iclUllS,
while his poor wife, who stayed at home, '
had no chance by attrition to grow mentally
and keep up with him so lint she became
uninteresting and a domestic bore to her
husband, who, unlike his great cotemporary,
Thackeray, was not a gentlemen by
birth or breeding, but a nan of genius with
a very selfish, unfovable nature. Anybody
can see by reading Dickens' works that he
never knew, much less loved, a really noble
woman. He was a great humorist, or I
rather a great caricaturist, but he was essen-
tially a man of melodramatic quality. He '
had a genius for the stage, and he described
women of sentimental or grotesque types
with the superficial accuracy of a gifted
Bohemian, but sentimentalism rather than
real sentiment, was the strength of Dickens;
he could not carry his oross like a i
manly, affectionateEnglishmauasThackeray
did; he was too vain, egotistical, selfish and
vulgar nt the bottom to refrain from so
frightful a wrong as to separate from a good
woman, the mother nf seven children, on
the heartless -ground that ,,Mrs. Diokens
bored him." He had with his genius and
mugnifioient opportunities outgrown the
poor lady who had during twelve years of
poverty been a faithful and fond wife to
him. Dickens wa�� meaner and n.oro heartless than Napoleon when he divorced Jos-1
ephine, for Napoleon wanted to found a
dynasty: Josephine was seven years older
'than himself, and the cast off mistress of
Barras at that. With strange inconsistency, the writer of the forgoing in the Seattle
Post Intelligencer, fails in the case of Dickens to apply his own conclusions as to men
of genius and the marital relations, the conclusions are as follow***;���
If Coleridge had not been a man ot genius
the fact that he was an opium eater and a
shiftless husband would have excited little
attention; if Byron had been a young Lord
Muttonhead of the court of Prinoe Regent
his divorce from or his desertion of his wife
would have excited no more attention than
the martial pranks of twenty or more of
the nobility of the court of Queen Victoria,
who have either deserted their wives or furnished them with ample grounds for a
divorce.

LOCAL  NEWS.
Peculiar Piscatorial Catching.
The N.V U. Go's wharves every day afford tt> anymiB interested in fishes and fish
ioji au i-.mu-.iuK and instructive siijht, as u
large number of men aud buys can be seen
there, even in bad wealh-r, using their
different m* thuds, as a varieLy of ways are
popular, and also required, for the different
kinris ut fi-h that inhabit the waters.
Oue pl**u in me, and which, though fairly
effemi f, cun only be used in shallow water,
and also r quiring the water to be clear, is a
oiroular ne* of small mesh, attached to an
iron houp and having a' stone attached to
the centre, and a line fastened to the sides
of the hoop diametrically opposite to one
another. This contrivance, when sunk, re
quires the operators to lie down aud watch
with the greatest keenness whether anything
worth while comes over it, and upon some
unwary fi*-h or crab, having been either enticed by the artful dropping of small pieces
of bait, or otherwise, in'o the circle of the
hoop, a sudden pull from above, aud the
catch tt* li *u!< tl on tu the wharf.
Another method, greatly in use by the
boys, and which, from requiring a great deal
mure exercise is more interesting, is the uBe
of a lot g line with a weight at the extremity snd a ihtee pronecd hook or succession
of hooks placed down the lower end. The
line is thrown out a considerable distance
and allowed to sink slowly itself. If herrings
are noticed iu a likely position, the line is
pulled sharply, very often impaling two or
three at one cast. This mode of fishing is
particularly interesting to watch, from the
curious things brought up, such aB kelps,
aud iu fact, auything not required, besideB
the lines getting entangled aud causing exciting discussions and also the malevolent
designs of other youthful watcher or fishers,
who, at an exciting moment throw pieces of
coal or stone into the water where the fish
are thickest, and the chances of catching
greatest, causing more angry discussion,
which invariably continues till the tisli have
betaken themselves elsewhere.
Others use an ordinary large hook, line
and weight, and their particular fancy in
the way of attractive bait, sink their lines
in dark corners, and await the result of a
bite. This latter method, more than the
previous two, is one which iB more likely to
giv a totally unexpected catch. What is
sought when fishing in this way is perch;
but the result, amongst other things, varies
from perch to crabs, kelp, star fish, dog fish
and anemones, and occasionally a small
devil fish.   ���
Any enterprising student of these waterB
can, from the N.V.C. Go's wharves alone,
obtain a variety of specimens, both finny
and cruBlaceous.

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By ErV St. C. K. Rise.)
CHAPTER IV.
(continued)
"It ie an atrocious world," cried Graves.
"Bat astronomers tay that there is a travel
ling comet which must set it on fire one
day, and that's some comfort!"
"Every hour hrings it's gloomy lesson,"
proceeded Evelyn; "the temper sours���the
affections wither���the heart hardens into
atone!    Zounds, Sharp!"
"What do you   stand   gaping there for?
Why don't   you   go   and   see to the brick
layer?"
Sharp hurried out at this forcible re
minder, and Graves placed his hat on the
writing-table.
"Graves!" resumed Evelyn, "of all my
new friends���and their name is Legion���you
iiro the only one I esteem; there is sympathy
between ue���we take the same views of life.
I am cordially glad to see you!"
"Ah!'1 murmured Graves, groaning.
"Why should you be glad to see a man so
miserable?"
"Because I am miserable myself!" said
Evelyn.
"You!' cried Mr. Graves, "l'shaw! you
have not been condemned to lose a wife!"
' "But, plague on it, man, I may be condemned to take one!" returned Evelyn.
"Sit down, **nd listen. I want a confidant!
Ileft fatherless when yet a boy, my poor
mother grudged herself food to give me
education. Some one had told her that
learning was better than house and land���
that's a  lie, Graves."
"A scandalous lie, Evelyn!" agreed
Graves.
On the strength of that lie I was put to
school���sent to college, a sizar," Evelyn
went on. "Do you know what a sizar is?
In pride hr is a gentleman���in knowledge
he is a scholar���and he crawls about, among
gentlemen and scholars, with the livery of a
pauper on his back! I carried off the great
prizes���I became distinguished���1 looked
to a high degree. One day a young lord insulted me���I retorted���he struck me���refused apology���refused redress. I was a
sizar!���a Pariah!���a thing to he struck! Sir,
I was at least a man, and I horsewhipped
him in the hall bef ire the eyes of the whole
college! A few days, and the lord's chastisement was forgotten. The next day the
-sizar was expelled���the career of a life
blasted. That is the difference between rich
and poor; it takes a whirlwind to move the
one���a breath may uproot the other! I
came to London. As long as my mother
lived I had one to toil for; and I did toil���
did, hope���did struggle to be something yet.
She died, and then, somehow, my spirit
, broke���I resigned myself to my fate. At
last I suhmitted to be the poor relation���
the hanger-on and gentleman-lackey of Sir
John Vesey. But I had an object in this���
there was one in that house whom I had
loved at the first sight."
"And were you loved again?" said Mr.
Graves. ��
"I fanoied it, and was deceived," returned Evelyn. "Not an hour before I inherited this mighty wealth, I confessed my
love, and was rejected beoause I was poor.
Now, mark; you remember the letter which
Sharp gave me when the will was read!"
"Perfectly," replied Graves. "What
were the contents?
"After hints, cautions, and admonitions
���half in irony, half in earnest (ah, pour
Mordaunt had known the world!) it proceeded���but I'll read it to yon," and Evelyn
drawing the letter from his pocket, proceeded to read it���". 'Having selected you
as my heir, because I think money a trust
to be placed where it seems likely to be best
employed, I do not impose a condition, but
ask a favor. If you have formed no other
and inseperable attachment, I could wish to
suggest your choice. My two nearest
female relations are my niece, Georgina, and
my third cousin, Clara Douglas, the
daughter of a once dear friend. If you
oould see in either of these, one whom you
eould make your wife, such would be a
marriage that I would seek to bring about
before I die.' My friend, this is not a legal
condition���the fortune does not rest oo it;
yet, need I Bay, that my gratitude considers
it a moral obligation, Several months have
elapsed since thus called upon���I ought now
to decide; you hear the names���Clara Doug
las is the woman who rejected me!"
Here they rose and placed their chairs
back.
"But now she would aocept you," remarked Mr. Graves.
"And do you think I am so base a slave
to passion, that I would owe to my gold
what was denied to my affection?" asked
Evelyn.
"But y u must choose one, in common
gratitude," replied Graves, "you ought to
do so���yes, there you are right. Besides,
you are constantly at the house���the world
observes it; you must have raised hopes in
one of the girls. Yes, it is time to decide
between her whom you love and her whom
you do not!"
"Of the two, then, I would rather marry
where 1 should exact the least," the great
heir went on. "A marriage, to which each
can bring sober esteem and calm regard,
may not be happiness, but it may be content. But to marry oue whom.you could
adore, and whose ho��rt is clnie to you���fo
yearn for the treasure, aud only to claim
the casket���to worship the statue that you
never may warm to life���nh! such a marriage would be a hell, the more lerrible he-
cause piradise was in sight."
"Georgina is pretty, but vain and frivol-
ous," Graves murmured, "but he has no
right to he fastidious���he has never known
Maria! Yes, my dear friend," he went on,
"as you are sure to miserable when you are
married, you will be as wretched as myself !
When you are married we will mingle our
groans together! Georgina is pretty, but
vain and frivolous!"
"You may misjudge Georgina," said Mr.
Evelyn, "she may have a nobler nature than
appears on the surface. On the day, but
before the hour, in whioh the will was rend,
A letter, in a strange or disguised hand,
signed "From an unknown friend to Alfred
Evelyn," and enclosing, what to a girl would
have been a considerable sum, was sent to a
poor woman for whom I had implored
charity, and whose address I had only given
to Georgina."
"Why not assure yourself?" asked
Gravel.
"Beoause I have not dared," returned his
friend. "For, sometimes even against my
reason,I have hoped that it might be Clara!'
Here he took a letter from his bosom, and
gazed intently on it.
"No," he resumed, "I oan't recognize the
hand.    Graves, I detest that girl."
"Who ? Georgina ?" asked Graves.
"No; Clara! But I've already, thank
heaven! taken some revenge upon her.
I'll not mention it. Yes; Graves,
come nearer," proceeded Evelyn, whispering.
"I've bribed Sharp to say that Mordaunt's
letter to me contained a codicil leaving Clara
Douglas ��20,000."
"And didn't ii?" inqu red Graves.
"Not a farthing," replied Evelyn. "One
of his caprices. Besi'ies, Sir John wrote
him wom ihat Ludy Kinnklin had adopted
her. But I'm glad of ii���I've paid the
money���she's no more a dependant. No
one can insult her now���she owes it all to
ine, aud does m>t ^iiess it, man���does not
guess it|���owes it to me, me, whom Bhe re
jected���me, lhe poor scholar! Ha! ha!
there's Borne spue in that eh?"
"You're a fine fellow, Evelyn, and we
understand each ether," cried Graves,
"Perhaps Clara may have seen the
address, and dictated this letter, after
all!"
"Do you think so?" asked Evelyn. "I'll
go to the house this instant!" And he went
to the table for his hat aod gloves.
t'kb.1 Humph! Then I'll go with you,"said
Graves, suddenly. "That Lady Franklin is
a fine woman! If she were not so gay' I
think���1 could "
"No, no," exclaimed Evelyn, "don't thiLk
any such thing; women are even worse then
men."
"True," said Graves, "to love is a boy's
madness!"
"To feel is to suffer!" moaned Evelyn.
"To hope is to be deceived."
"I have doue with romance!"
"Mine is buried wiih Maria!"
"If Clara did but write this!" cried
Evelyn.
"Make haste," cried Graves. "Make
haste, or Lady Franklin will be out!"
Then he added wiih great and melancholy
effusion���"A vale of tears���a vale of
tears!"
"A vale of tears, indeed," cried Evelyn,
following him out of the room. Mr. Graves,
however, forgot his hat, and had to return
for it.
"Ah!" he said, "I left, my hat behind me1
Just like my luck! If I had heen bred a
hatter, little boys would have come into the
world without heads, and he hurried after
his friend again.
CHAPTER V.
A CRUEL DECEPTION.
We will now ask our reader to return to
the drawing-rooms in Sir John Vessey's
house. They��were but little changed. A
newspaper lay among the books on the table
on the right of the front room, and a portfolio of drawings on the other.
Lady Franklin came sailing into the
room laughing heartily, and followed by
Clara.
"Oh! talking of marriage," oried her
Ladyship, "I've certainly made a conquest
of Mr. Graves."
"Mr. Graves!"exolaimed Clara. 'I thought
he was inconsolable."
'For his saiiued Maria," laughed Lady
Franklin. "Poor man, not contented with
plaguing him while she lived, she must needs
haunt him now she is dead."
"But why does he regret her?"
"Why?" asked Lady Franklin. "Because
he has everything to make him happy���
easy fortune, good health, respeotable character. And since it is his delight to be miserable, he takes the only excuse the world
will allow him. For the rest���it's the way
with widowers; that is, whenever they mean
to marry again. But my dear Clara, you
seem  absent���pale���unhappy���tears,  too!"
"No���no���not ttars. No!" returned
Clara.
"Ever since Mr. Mordaunt left you ��20,-
000 every one admires you. Sir Frederick
is dreadfully smitten."
"Sir Frederick!" cried Clara with disdain.
'Ah Clara, be comforted," exclaimed her
ladyship. "I know your secret. I am certain that Evelyn loves you."
"He did���it is passed now," murmured
Clara. "You alone know th > tru*�� reason I
rejected him. You know that if he ever
learns that reason he will acquit me of all
selfish motives; but if I were now to appeal
to his heart it would only seem that I had
paid homage to his wealth."
Here Sir John Vesey made his appearance
and began to turn over the books on the table as if in search of the very apparent
newspaper.
"But let me only tell him that it was you
that sent that money to his old nurse,"
cried Lady Franklin. "Poor Clara! it was
your little all. He will then know, at least,
if avarice be your sin."
"He would have guessed it, had his love
been like mine," said Clara.
"Guessed it���nonsense!" exolaimed the
widow. "The handwriting unknown to him
���every reason to think it came from Georgina."
"Hum!" murmured Sir John. "Came
from Georgina!" "Come, let me tell him
this," proceedod Ladp Franklin. "I know
the effect it would have upon his ohoice."
"Choice! oh, that humiliating word,"
cried Clara. "No, Lady Franklin, no!
Promise me!"
"But!" remonstrated Lady Franklin.
"No! promise faithfully, sacredly!" cried
Clara.
"Well, I promise," said the elder lady.
"Thanks!" exclaimed Clara. "I���I���forgive me���I am not well," and she precipitately left the room.
"What tools these girls are!" cried the
widow. "They take as much pains to lose a
hiiHimnd ns a pniir  widow dotis to get one."
"Have you seen the Times newspaper?"
asked her brother. "Where the deuce is
the newspaper? I can't find the Times
newspaper."
"I think it ia in my room," said Lady
Franklin.    "Shall I leich il?"
"My dear sister���you're the best creature.
Do!" said Sir John with a smile. Then as
she left the room he continued in quite another tone���"Ugh! you unnatural conspirator against your own familyl What can
the letter be? Ah! I recollect something,"
he added aa Georgina appeared.
"Papa, I want?"
, "Yes, 1 know what you want well
enough," was his reply. "Tell me���were
you aware that Clara had sent money to
the old nurse Evelyn bored us about the
day of the will?"
"No!" she replied. "He give me the address and I promised if���"
"Gave you the address?" said Sir John.
"That's lucky!   Hush!"
As he uttered the caution *a servant announced, "Mr, Graves! Mr. Evelyn!" and
the gentlemen appeared, just as Lady
Franklin returned with the newspaper.
Georgina went at once to greet Evelyn.
"Here is the newspaper," said Lady
Franklin.
"Ay���read the newspapers,'' cried Graves,
bitterly, "they'll tell you what this world is
made of. Daily calendars of roguery and
woe! Here, advertisements from quacks,
money-lenders, cheap warehouses, and spotted boys with two heads. So much for
dupes and impostors! Turn to the other
column���police reports, bankruptcies, swindling, forgery, and a biographical sketch of
the snub-nosed man who murdered his   own
three little cherubs at Pentonville. Do you
fancy these but exceptions to the general
virtue and health of the nati' n?���turn to the
leading article! and yonr hair will stand on
end at the horrible wickedness or melancholy idiotism of that half of the population
who think differently from yourself. In my
day I have seen already eighteen crises, six
anuihiUi ions of agriculture and commerce,
four overthrows of the church, and three
last, final, awful, and irremediable destructions of the eotire constitution! And that's
a newspaper!" Mr. Graves continued triumphantly.
"Ha! ha! hil" laughed Lady Franklin,
"your usual vein. Always so amusing and
good humored."
"Ma'am!" exclaimed Mr. Graves, very
angry and frowning, "did you say good
humored?"
"Ah! you shou'd always wear that agreeable smile," said Lady Franklin, "you look
so much younger, bo much handsomer,
when you smile!"
"Ma'am," murmnred Mr. Graves, "a
charming creature, upon my word!"
"You have not seen tlie laat H. B?" said
Lady Franklin. "It is exeellent. I think
it might make you laugh. Bat, by-the-by,
I don't think you can laugh."
"Ma'am, I have not laughed since the
deaih of my sainted Maria," murmured
Graves.
"Ah!" said Lady Franklin, "and that
spiteful Sir Frederick says you never laugh,
because���but you'll be angry?"
"Angry!���pooh!���I despise Sir Frederick
too much to let anything he says have the
smallest influence over me! He says I don't
laugh because "
"You have lost your front teeth!"
"Lost my front teeth!" shouted Graves.
"Upon my word. Ha! ha! ha! That's too
good���oapital! Ha! ha! ha!" and the
usually serious Mr. Graves literally laughed
from ear to ear. Lady Franklin joined in
the merriment in a more graceful and musical manner, and then both retired to the
inner room.
"Ah!" said Evelyn to himself; "of course
Clara will not appear���avoids me as usual!.
But what do I care? What is she to me?
Nothing!"
At the same moment, Sir John Vesey,
who had been conversing privately with
Georgina, said almost aloud���
"Yes, yes. Leave me to manage. You
took his portrait as I told you?"
"Yes," returned Georgina, "but I could
not catch the expression. I got Clara to
touch it up."
"That girl's always in the way," cried Sir
John angrily and illogically, us a servant
entered and announoed Captain Dudley
Smooth.
"Good morning, dear John," said that
handsome and polished gentleman in his
most musical tones. "Ah! Miss Vesey, you
have no idea of the conquests you made at
Willis's Rooms last night!"
