While in the main agreeing with
Judge Gray's decision in the Esquimalt election case, wo feel hound to
dissent from it in so far as Sample's
vote is concerned. "Jn Sample's
case, (said His Honor) therefore, wo
have proof that a request to havo
his name removed, was hy liim delivered personally to the collector,
and sec. 19 snys that shall be deemed
: jprpof Shut his name has been removed," But that was only proof of a
verbal reqne.it; and wo contend
that the law contemplates and requires a written request. Wo will
quote section 19 verbatim:
The Collector of any electoral district or polling division thereof shnll
remove lhe niuno of any .person whoso
name is on the register of voters fur
bucIi district, on tho written re'q'uesfc of
such person and proof that Bitch request was deposited in tlio pD.it ofticc
, in a prepaid letter addressed to tho
Collector, or proof that aiic'ft request
was personally delivered to hint shall
.be deemed proof that iho namo of sueh
.person has been removed from tho
Register.
Now wo think ib should be clear
to any one accustomed to construe
words and sentences that tiie "request" must he in writing, and that
the words "personally delivered--
simply refers to the mode of delivering such "written" request-—assuredly does not transformLit into a Verbal request. To construe tiie sentence so as to imply personal delivery
of a verbal request would be to make
it nonsensical and ungrammaticul.
Not only does tho law require the
request to be in writing, hut common sense should point out the extreme unwisdom of admitting r. verbal request in sueh a matter. It
would lead to no end of confusion
and misunderstanding, and might be
liable to serious abuse. While experiencing very great hesitation iu
Betting up our own opinion upon
suoh a point in opposition to that of
Mr. Justice _ Gray, a remarkably
clear-headed lawyer, we must, therefore, be permitted to think tliat Mr*
Semple's vote should havo been disallowed as his name had never been
removed from the Cariboo list, nnd
, could not have been legally placed
on the Esquimau list. Indeed we
-cannot help thinking that, ot the
two, Mr. Muir camo rcmer fulfilling
the conditions of the net in attempting to have his name removed from
the Nanaimo list than did Mr. Setn-
•j)le. The law clearly requires that
the request shall be iit writing.
Muir did put his request in writing
but omitted to sign his namo. Sotn-
nlo did not put his request in writing at all, and, consequently, it could
not constitute a legal request, no
matter hew delivered. But neither
•could Muir'a request he a legal one,
because,  without his signature it
, was without force or legal effect.
Yet, of the two, Muir came nearest
fulfilling the legal conditions, nl
though in fact both failed.

Lines on a Winter Nfeltf.
The oarth lies cold and dead I
Chilled by the nortii wind's breath}
And the wintry cloud
Hath wrapped a shroud
About tlie form whence life haa fled;
And that mantle white like a veil is
spread
O'er the ea.th's rough face in death.
At the nigged earth holow
Tho pitying moon doth staro,
When the wind hath rent
The storm king's tent;
And trembling stars behold the snow
That lies where once life streams did
flow,
Through many a region fair.
*-■
The pine- tree feels the blast,' *
And like a giant great)!',
While his tangled hair
Streams in the air,
Like pennons from the stately mast
Of a ship when tho wild wind rushes
past,
With strange, unearthly moans.
The melancholy fiound
Of ocean's voice is heard,
And tho ceaseless lush
Of waves that dash
Against the rocks, whilst all around
Tiio conflicts of winds and waveB re*
souiid,
And tin: lowest depths are stirred.

i Herscholl's labors shmvod tho Milky
Way to be a great nebula containing
at least fifty millions of huge binning
suns, with our sun and its attendant
planets near the centre of the system.
This nebula is distributed in two nearly
parallel layers having the form of a
pair of millstones, being vory thin but
extending laterally to distances of
whioh we can form no conception.
While with an uninterrupted track a
lightning express train might pass
around our world—whieh seems large
to ui—in less than one short month,
It could not at its highest speed accent-
Elish the distance to the sun in two
undred yean! But a beam of light
Rashes across that space in eight tumults. And yet this beam of light,
whieh vastly transcend? in speed anything we know, requires mure than
three years to travel from the nearest
'fixed star to tho earth, and to cross
the extreme width of the Milky Way
itself must occupy nearly three thousand years ! Even this expresses no
Idea of the limits of the visible universe. Other liebuhe than our own
are visible in space, and if its largo as
our own must be so distant that tlio
light cannot reach our system in one
mtUibn pars!
Among tho special features of the
Munich electrical exhibition is a giant
telephone which transmits music so as
to bo audible to the entire audience in
a large hall.
Tlm great red spot which has been
visible on tlie surface of tho planet
Jupiter for several years is reported to
be growing fainter, and the early disappearance of this remarkable object
seems imminent,
Experiments by Koch and Wolfhugel
to determine tlie disinfecting power of
hot air have led to the conclusion that
so high a temperature and so long an
exposure are necessary lo secure disinfection that (host articles — such as
clothing—are liable to sorious damage
by tho operation.
It has been ascertained that the first
c*,periiueut with air balloons was made
at Avignon by Montgolfier the elder
iu November, 1732. He sent up in
Ids room a parallelepiped of canvas
containing forty cubic feot of air heated by burning paper inside. Tho room
is still in existence,
Tho local pronunciation of geographical names is often dliferent from
what' would elsewhere ue expected
from the spelling. A congress of
French geographical sneioltos has
adopted tho principle that geographical mimes—with a foiv exceptions—
should bu pronounced in tho local
way.
It is held by Mons. P. de Tohi-
hatcheff that the great deserts of Asia
and Africa are nut recently raised sea-
bods, but were uplifted at remote geological epochs; their sands being tho
product of rocks disaggregated by atmospheric causes, instead of showing
a nmriuo origin- Tlio Asiatic deserts
aro much older than the Siihara.
In a rocent paper, Dr. Drysdale, of
London, shmvod tliat it could no longer
he a matter of doubt that humanized
lymph should bo entirely abandoned
in favor nf calf lymph for vaccination,
as lias been done in the Untied States.
Several physicians of wide.', experience
tcslilied in 1830 that animal vaccination was a perfect preservative against
siitall-pox, but tlio lymph lakeii from
human subjecia very ufi,oii fails to
protect.
Borr Crancr lias made some experiments on the nutrition of a man iu his
sixty-fourth year who had practiced
vegetarianism since he was oloven.
Be liuds that a strictly -vegetable diet
may maintain (he bodily and mental
functions, but it only suUices to prolong life Whon tho quantity of vegetables is reduced by introduction of animal albumen in tho form of milk and
eggs. Ho recommends the less bulky
mixed diet as fho mure practical nud
economical food for man.
Prof. Fuichtiugcr of Munich haa observed that of various kinds of writing
nud printing paper examined all thoso
that had buen sized with resin had a
more or less acid reaction, whilo this
property did uot appear in paper with
animal sizing. Tho acid reaction was
found to be duo to free sulphuric acid,
which must impair tho durability of
paper in which it exists, and must also
gradually destroy tho black color of
writing on the paper. Rosin-sized
paper would, therefore, seem to be unlit fer records aud other writings intended to be lasting.
Iu warm-blooded animals tho heart's
action ceases in a very few minutes
after the destruction .of the nervous
centres or after the circulation of tho
blood in,its own vessels is by any
means arretted, Not su with coldblooded animals, however, aa tho heart
of one of them may continue to boat
for many hours aftor it has been emptied of blood and' even aftor it has
been cut nut of the client. The pulsations of tho heart of an eel have
beon seen to continue fur six hours
after separation froni thu rest uf tliu
body; of a torpedo, for nine hours;
and of a salmon, for twenty-four hours.

The influence of a European
War ou fort Moody Town
"■ots!
On Satin-day oiu- local contemporary placed hefore his limited number of readers an article on the imminence of a great European war
As to where and on what pretext
it would begin he was not at all
clear; but of one result he was perfectly certain:  Tho prizes --of war
would  be 'brought from'overy part
of tho 'globe and fls an inevitable
consequence, "Eve'i-v inch of land in
•nnd around Port Moody will soon
'ba immensely valuable"! This is, in-
' deed, exciting intelligence, and ought
' to creat a "boom" in real estate.   Is
tt not within the range of possibility
'tbat -iho "Great Powers" may  bo
getting up a rumpus for the express
purposo of making town lots at Port
Moody "immensely valuable"? Who
knows but the leading statesmen of
*European powers   may havo  been
quietly dipping  into Port Moody
'lots, and are now about to get up n
war (sham, of course) in ordor -to
enhance the vahio of thoir town lots!
It would certainly be a far-reaching
policy. Aud then this scheme would
possess tho important advantage of
demonstrating, as our contemporary
expresses it, "the absurdity of constructing the terminus of a great
.railway, such as the Canadian Paci-
'fic, in such an exposed position as
English Bay or Coal Harbor,"—the
wisdom of   having  that terminus
away in through narrows and tide-
rips, wliere tho ships of the hostile
powers wouldn't care to penetrate.
But how about commerce! Never
'mind commerce.    It's war, not com-
'mefce, that must be considered. But
while we have no objection to these
European  potentates  investing  in
■town lots at Port Moody, and would
*not even object to their getting up a
gigantic European war (provided it
hurts no one) in order to render
these lots "immensely valuable," we
-must  object to that part of  the
scheme which threatens to involve
.-British Columbia in bankruptcy. In
-the course of his remarkable article
our contemporary suddenly breaks
out thus: "How about the Esqui-
1 malt Graving Dock that the Colonist
»n<l its clique have done everything
to put a stop tot Tho dock will one
day be the greatest source of wealth
-to Victoria, and should be most certainly constructed without   a   moment's delay.*'   Now, -unless we 'are
'very much mistaken our contempo-
'rary has, in times past, pointed out
the utter folly of building the dock
'at Esquimalt, where, in timo of Wat's-  could so easily be shelled  by an
enemy's ship, and wo are quite cer
tain he has repeatedly declared thnt
the dock could never be a cent's
worth of benefit to tho taxpayers of
the Mainland.  Perhaps he will now
point out in what possible way it
«an "one day be the greatest source
•of wealth to Victoria," ns the tax
payers   en   tlie Mainland, and on
Vancouver Island too, for the mat-
ter of that, would require to be well
assured on that point in addition to
being  in  a  peculiarly  benevolent
frame of mind, before being willing
to  rob  and beggar themselves in
order to create "the greatest source
of wealth to Victoria."   Before call
ing upon the wholo body of the people outside of Victoria to make such
-a tremendous sacrifice as would un-
doubtedly be involved  in  building
and maintaining the dock for the
sole benefit and behoof of that town
our contemporary should certainly
be prepared to demonstrate beyond
all reasonable possibility of doubt
that such a wondcrous result would
follow. That done, it would be for the
' tax-payers outside of Victoria, to
whom our contemporary admits the
dock can nevor he a cent's worth of
benefit, to consider whether they
would be prepared to make the sac-
rifice; and one can easily conceive
the possibility of some people arriving at the conclusion that if the dock
•t Esquimalt wonld really "be tho
greatest source of wealth to Victoria," without conferring any benefit
upon  tho rest of the Province, the
correct thing would be for the cost
of ita construction and maintenance
to fall upon that fortunate community.   We aro inclined to suspect,
however,   that   our  contemporary
would experience great difficulty iu
convincing any fair-minded person
of anything of the sort. In so far
as the charge that tho Colonist and
its clique (ns it suts our amiable contemporary to express it) have done
everything to put a stop to" the
dock is concerned, we hnvo only to
sny that it is a wanton misrepresentation. Tlio Opposition have no
desire to prevent the dock being
built. But they do object to such a
bungling nnd ruinous attempt to
build it us hns been and is still being mnde. Thoy object to entailing
upon the revenues of the Province a
ruinous charge for constructing and
maintaining n work which was nevor
intended to have cost the Provinco a
singlo dollar— which the Walkem-
Bonvcn Government solemnly plodg
ed itself would never cost tho Province a single dollar—a work which
even the locnl organ of that Government has repeatedly admitted and
which overy fairly-balanced and
well-informed mind must know can
never be a cent's worth of benefit to
tho Province os a whole. That is,
negatively, the position occupied by
nt least nine-tenths of the tiix-pnyci-s
of British .Columbia in reference to
the dock question, nnd it will be
amongst the first duties of the new
Government to lift that millstone
from provincial shoulders and place
it where it properly belongs, on very
much broader shoulders.
Coming.
In spite of tho hind-lock, settlors
are coming into the valley of the
Lower Fraser. At tho present time
a small colony of fourteen families
nre making arrangements for moving
over hero from Washington Territory, where they have been living
for some years. They sent one of
themselves over to spy out the land,
and tho result is a determination to
come and settle on lnnds to be obtained from private holders between
here and the boundary line. Theso
families are all in comparatively
easy circumstances, possessing ample
means to pnrchaso homesteads and
mako a good start thereon. This is
a most desirable class of immigrants,
and wc should ho delighted to hear
of many more such coming; but one
cannot help reflecting how many
more would como and how many
more would remain if the lands now
locked up under the head of "Hail-
way Reserve" were only available.
It is no exaggeration to say thnt in
such event, ten would come and remain for one under existing circumstances. It is no secret that Mr.
Beaven took advantage of his position as head of the lands department
to "grab" considerable quantities of
the most desirable land—chiefly between the Fraser river and the
boundary lino, and there are those
who do not hesitate to assert that he
will nae every strategem in his
power for the purposo of preventing
the railway lands being thrown ou
the market at present, as it would
materially lessen his chances of being
able to get customers for his own.
While wo might hesitate to believe
tho Minister capable of allowing his
well-known avariciouaness to carry
him quite so far as that, still there
seems no reason to doubt that tho
locnl Government blocks tho way,
and this consideration constitutes
ono more reason why that Government should be brushed out of the
way, in order that the country may
be allowed to march forward in the
path of prosperity.
Railway Progress.
While work is being vigorously
pushed forward in the canyons of
the Fraser, a supreme effort is being
made on that portion of the line be-
tween Emory and the sea, and we
lmvo it from high authority that
there is a probability of tho track
boing laid continuously from the sea
to tho crossing near Lytton next
year. Certain it is that if this is
not accomplished it will be because
it is beyond tho power of money and
push to do it. Thus tile farmers on
the Lower Fraser will see that they,
too, ought to put forth a supreme
effort to feed tlio workmen. The
demand for all food products will be
very great next year, and the Bottlers should "make hay while the
sun shines." On .Saturday we copied
from tho Colonist a rumor to tho
effect that the business of Mr. Trutch
und Mr. Smith up the country last
week was to determino the possibility of making an important change
in the route of the railway.
We aro now in a position to stato
that the rumor was without tho
slightest foundation in fact.

Arm tea-meeting, to be held a week
from this evening. The commodious
steamer Adelaide has been chartered
for the accommodation of those in thfo

MOVEMKNTS OF RAILWAY NOTABLES,
—On Monday night the steamer Myra
(formerly Pacific Slope) arrived from
up-river, hnving on board Hon. Mr.
Trutch, Mr. Onderdonk, Mv. Marcus
Smith and Mr. F. E. Robson. Mr.'
Trutch remained in this city attending
to business, and Mr. Ondordonk and
Mr, Robson wont over to Port Moody,
whero the latter will be stationed during the winter, taking charge of the
financial aud comiuissariut departments.
Death or S&s. FisUkb.— Intelligence reached this city on Saturday
last of the death Hint morning of Mrs.
Fisher, wife of Wm. Fishor, Esq.,
J. P., and ox-M. P. P.fftfr Esquimalt.
Mrs. Fisher had been ill' for a short
time and her son, Isaac Fisher, Esq.,
of this city, was summoned and went
down on Saturday, but unhappily too
late to see his mothor nlivo. The news
lias caused much sorrow iu this community, whore tho deceased lady bad
many friends.
Highly Proper.—-We undorst'tK: a
movement is on foot for the purposo
of having a constable appointed for
Port Moody, There can be no doubt
whatever that the time has fully come
when sueh provision for preserving
the peaco at thnt placo should be
made. There are now a largo number
of men employed on the mil way works
at and near Port Moody, and the cir-'
oumstance of a majority of them boing
Chinese by no means lessens the necessity for tho presence of a peace
fflcer.
Another Sad Bkreav^mext.—It is
with sincere regret ye announce. the
death of Alexander Harper, of Chilliwhack,,but moro recently of this city.
Mr. Harper had a farm in upper-Chtl-
liwhack and Buttered vory severely by
last summer's floods. Several months
at»o ho removed with his family to tliis
city, and- -had gone up to do a fow
(toys'work on liis farm whon ho caught
cold aud died of in llama Mon on Monday. Deceased was a native of Ontario, about 38 years of aye, and was a
most exemplary mnu, highly esteemed
by nfl who knew him. Ho leaves a
wife and child to mourn his Iusb. Thoy

-cptatft unity, as wo aro sure they have

Parker has a voice of rare excellence
for a girl of her ago, and would, with
proper training, mako a prima donna.
She and Mis;* Eickhoff H*uig n duet,
and these twirwifch Miss Wise sang a
trio. Mr. C. E. Woods sang a solo in
his usual stylo and Mr, H. Read
"brought down the hi ■use'' with
'.'Brown s Daughter." Miss Woods
and Mrs. D. Robson sang a solo each.
Mrs. Peele played a very pretty piano
solo, and Messrs. Thomas and Morey
gavo a duet on the violin nud piano.
Tho quartette by Mrs. Robsoil, Mra.
Major, Mr, DeBeck und Mr. Pearson
wns fairly well rendered. Readings
wero given by Messrs. J. S. Clute aqd
A, G. Archibald, Hon. Senator Mclnnes occupied tho Chair, Tho managers of the Mechanics1 Institute are
to bo congratulated upon the tuiccews
of these two entertainments, and wo
hope next your they may bu able tu
furnish,' m eifoally interesting program hi i; for public aimisum'.'ut.
"Cuuwus," in his excellent letter,
tu bo found in another column, tells
some unpalatable truths. How property owners can expect to see thu city
grow while they hold their lots at high
pricesjind do nothing towards providing house-accommodation for those
dc-prons of finding homes amongst us
is inexplicable. One would iningiue
that it would be good policy for those
posse'nsing the 'nVi'an.s to invest at least
a portion of their idle capital in tho
erection of suitable buildings to lease
or sell to new-comers. In regard to
country land's, there is doubtless much
truth and force in what Claudius has
lo say; but it occurs to ns that, after
all, the true remedy would bu the
throwing of the railway lauds on the.
market.
A Minister's Evidence. —The all prevalent malady of civilized life is Dyspepsia. Rov. VV. K. (Jillbrd, of HotWell,
was cured of dyspepsia and liver ctnu-
iltiint that rendered his life nlinoat a
mrden. Tho 0111*0 was completed by
throe bottles of lJnrdock Blood Bitters.
Dallas Slrcet Improvements.
Upon tho principle, "Rotter late
than never," we suppose the improvements being made on Dallas streot
ought to bo regarded with complacency. At tho samu time, one cannot
blink tho fact that the same expend 1
turo would have accomplished muel
more satisfactory results if made at
the most favorable time of the year,
instead of being made at the very
worst time, during tho shortest nml
wettest days, where no man eaii put in
a full day's work aud when two days'
work will not du more permanent
good than one in summer. And, besides the disadvantages under which
roadmnkiug must always be dono during tlie rainy season-, the repairs going
on cannot fail to gerimisjy obstruct
traffic on the piece of road in question.
But whilo regretting all that, it is reassuring to observe a- disposition recently manifested to have tbe work
more thoroughly and vigorously prosecuted. A competent foreman is to
see that the labour is judicivusly nnd
ollectively iippliotl. A tramway is being laid on Etlice Street, iu order that
gravelly soil from thu ridge may be
moved down, aud some talerahly uood
roadniiiking material is being carted
from Market Square; and there would
now appear to he some ground fur
hoping that, in the end, Dallas Streot
may become passably good.
Meelinuliii*' instiiiitc Concert.
Tlie concert whioh took place in the
Drill Shed* last Monday night, in aid
of the funds of the Mechanics' Institute, drew a very full houso. Tho
programme presented' considerable
variety, and the performers generally
acquitted themselves with much credit.
Among ihe how faces on tin) Stage
wero Mr. A. Post ill, of Okanagon,
who sang two songs, which were loudly
encored; Mr. Carl Lowenburgh, of
Victoria, who played a pinno solo with
great taste; Mr. Roxbery, Miss Grace
Parker, Miss Eickhoff, and Miss Wise.
Mr. Roxbery'8 tin whistle solos wero
certainly extraordinary mimic for so
Duty and Pleasure.
It is now about twenty years since
a splendid ehimti of bolls, tho princely
gift of Lady Coutts, was sent out from
England expressly Tor 'New Westminster. Indeed the n»ii.e of the.city is
cast upon tho bells. On their arrival
at Victoria, an attempt was made to
capture tho chime for Hint city, the
Bishop of that time having been pro-
Victoria in sympathy; aud it ia open
-to question whether the attempt might
uot havo proved successful had it not
been for tho circumstance of these
tell-tale letters standing out in bold
relief, thus emphatically proclaiming:the
unequivocal intention of tho noble
doner. Well, after some littlo delay,
tlict-Q bells camo ou to their destination
and wero rudely mounted in a wooden
tower which could not bo regarded as
eifchor substantial or ornamental; and
for home years the people of the Royal
City had the pleasure of Inuring tiie
•'National Anthem," tlm *'01d Hundred," "Homo, Sweot Home," aud
other familiar airs rung out on the
ehinio. But the old tower became
rickety, and several years ago tho bells
were taken down to keep them from
falling, and they aro stowed away in
an old shed—excepting one, which
does ordinary duty in an extremely
rude ana unpretentious belfr-iy behind
thu church. Need we say that the
fate of that roally splendid chime or
boils has been bcareuly such as is consistent with becoming respect for the
noble lady to whose generosity New
WestmffiStev is so much indebted?
Nor, indeed, is it nt all creditable to
the city that so noble a gift, the finest
chimo of bells on (hu coast, tdtouhl
have been so little appreciated. Iu
this .connection tho reader may bo reminded of thu Offer which came from
Granville loss than a year ago, to erect
a suitnblu fviwer fm- the bells if they
would bu allowed to bo taken over
there—nu idler which certainly shamed Now Westminster. A fund
amounting to some $1,000, for the purpose of aiding iu tho erecting of a
suitable bull-tower in connection with
Holy Trinity, has been on hand for a
long time; but that sum is only avhjl-
ablo on condition of the tower being
of stone. At the suggestion of the
Bishop uf Now Westminster, the ladies
of Holy Trinity are about to put forth
an .effort for the purpose of supple-
monting that fund. In doing this,
they hnvo hit upon the happy expedient of holding u scries of social reunion1*, designated "cohvorflazionos,1'
consisting of mimic, readings, tableaux and refreshments, thnn delightfully blending duty and pleasure,
Such a bell-tower as is contemplated
will be something move than au appendage of Holy Trinity Church. It
will bo nil ornament to the city—"ft
thing of beauty and a joy forever,'''
aud, with tho chime of belts, it will bu
something of wliich the Royal Oity
may justly feel proud. It. litis, therefore, a fair olaljii upon every member
of the community—a claim extending
oven beyond tho city limits. Tlinnks
to tho ladlos who havo itmlprtaken the
management of those delightful outer*
tniumont-t, it will ha in tliu power of
the peoole, while contributing tho
necessary funds in iuitaliuonts so small
that they will never be felt, to receive
more than value for t boh* money in
the form of rational winter's ovenini*
outoitaiumoiiK The first of tbo series will bu held lo-niorrow ovening,
nnd wu feci that it is quite unnecessary to appeal to tho people of New
Westminster lo manifest by their attendance at these entertainments their
appreciation of the solf-donying and
arduous efforts of these ladies as well
as the claims which the causo has upon
them.

linpitliUnble Truths..
EniTOtt Columbian. —In tho Coi.um-
Man of the 18th inst., I see nn editorial paragraph mentioning tho rt-
cent arrival in this city, from au eastern province, of n family of intunding
settlors, numbering eleven in all—
which paragraph concludes with tho
observation that "This is just tho sort
of population wanted a'nrt wo warmly
welcomo thom."
This paragraph suggests to me somo
remarks. I do not doubt that tho
family referred to nre of the sort of
population which this country requires.
Neither do I doubt tho cordiality* of
your particular welcome to them.
Nevertheless*, I bog leave to nsk: What
is tho sort of welcome which British
Columbia as a whole, or which tho
City of Westminster, or any other
placo within this Province, extends to
tho most desirable class of hmnigrunls '.
I believe I am quite safe in saying
that, far years past and especially during tho past twelve-month, n large—or
nt least a very considerate—immigration into llii.'i Province, rami tho eastward, has been confidently and exultantly anticipated by tho rf-sident population of Columbia. What provision
has been made to meet it 'I None,
whatever—at least so far as I liav
lieen able to learn. On tho contrary,
tho action of tiie resident community
has beon rather of a rcpcllant character
than otherwise Is it not a fact that
the head of the very family abovo ro-
ferrdd to hns uefiu couiaiug up and
down Westminster ever sinco liis'arrl-
val here in tho vain search of u dwelling within wliich tu shelter hit, family?
Is there, to-day, a house of any toniint-
able description to bti had, in (his city,
"for lovo or money"/ Is it not true
that other families have, for weeks if
not for months past, been vairJy prosecuting a like search,ra that uf this
latest arrival'/ Yet no man coming
here, to settlo can be expected to briu
niiouso upon hin fihotu§orsj but, if
•man of family, that ia nu nrticla he
can ill dispense with. .URmigrants, as'
wo have seen, have been Imp;* tiiid
eagerly expected. Wo have men of
capital amongst us—cxtomuvu owner
of town building U\s. Why have not
theso mon opeimd their hearts and
brightened up their enterprise; and,
whilht, benefitting their own packets,
donu something f-ir the public weal,
by eroding a number of tenantabic
houses in place of the unsightly stumps
whieh now occupy thoso same town
lotsl At present Ihu intending settler
who conies horo from abroad—if he
havo not somo resident friend hero
possessing Bpiiro-. house room, which
can only lie the case with a vory few-
has no anternative but that of a Si
wasH, to pitch his tent by tlie wayside,
or buy some .slabs from some of ti
nulls and run up a shanty fur oven I
lirst night's lodging.
Thero is another point upon which
I niiidt touch, Suppose that our newcomer possesses the necessary means
and is desirous of building a house, for
himself. The result of liiy enquiries
is to ascertain that he j,vill ho charged
at an exorbitant rale for tho laud; su
much so as probably to drivo him and
his building schemes elsewhere. Landowners may differ from me on this
point; but timo will tell who fo in the
right. This ground of complaint;, as
well as that of the scarcity of tenant-
able houses,' applies not exclusively to
Westminster. I fear that, 111 both respects, most othor centres of population throughout the Province arc in
about thesame position.
Suppose again that tho new-comer
fo a fanner, and Vjjtshes to bay agricultural land. Assuredly he must soon*
Iind Ins case an almost hopeless one.
It is notorious that all tho most accessible, cultivable lauds as yot uu-
grnntoct, aro tied up beyond the reach
of private acquisition, on any terms
whatsoever. Upon diligent enquiry,
I cannot learn that anything has been
done, is being done, ur is likely soon
to be dono, to open up these lands for
private purchaser.*-. Truly, it happy
stato of affairs! But this is not nil;
aud t question "if it is even the worst
of it. It is etjually,notorious that the
hest farm lauds iu tliu Province havo,
in various ways ami by various means,
beeu, lung since, scoured to themselves
hy private individuals. With what intent Mo work thorn i- Hy no ihoaiiB.
Or else what Is thu result I Whilst tlio
Columbians maintain tliat this really is
a farming country, whatever other put
plo iii ay say to the contrary, we Iind
thom actually importing front boy end
the 40th parnllul nearly every edible
thing that is consumed by tlm handful
of poople as yet iu the Province
oetit salmon nud beef. This is a sin
nil truth. Tho cultivable lauds which
havo been so extensively, "gobbled.
aro not. worked., But lei tho immigrant farmer apply for tho purchase of
any portion of thom. In uino casta
out of ten, be will be met with a price
that will drive him headlong from the
country. Thus, however culpable tlm
Government, it is not that alone which
is to blame. There fo too touch dog-
in-the-inanger-ism amongst us.
I nnw in a late paper that thoro had
recently arrived here—perhnpH is hero
yot—-a representative nf boiiiu forty
Nova Scotinns, now in Jftohfnna and
desirous of removing hi titer if there is
nnyfitir prospect for thom. There arc
ttHjUHiuicu* like them in the Eastern
Provinces, But what can this delegate report to his confederates in view
of the facts alluded to above I When
visitors from the East to this Province
write back to thuir friends seemingly
depreciatory accounts concerning ifc,—
as has beon dono—the Columbians,
instead of bring up with indignation towards tho writers, would do
well to ascertain bow much of truth
they have written, and also how much
they themselves have dune to debase
their country in popular estimation
abroad, Clami's.

Caution,
We bog to call the attention of tho
trndo and tiie public to the well-known
ipinlity ami elegance of finish of our
Gold Gi'isos, guaranteed by us to ho of
eighteen karat Gold, ;T. S'. Mint Ji-*say,
or of fourteen karat Cold, as mny be
fitampeil, and also to our mode of selling
tho same, charging only for the Actual
WEtpHT of the gold used, and not for
the llano metal comprised in springs, key
piped, filling of erown, eto. To illustrate
whioh a tag accompanies each one of our
Cold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only thb gross weight of the ease, but
also tha Net weight of tlnTgold.
In explanation of the above wu desire
to sny that the old plan of charging for
the gum weight of the case, as if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturers were coiitout with the
amount of brass and steel actually re
quired in ita construction j but when tin
business was degraded into a contest he

Into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then tlie time camo when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of soiling, showing the buyer exactly how much QoM) eaon case contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe thnt every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
huai'3 our trade mark on both caso and
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A,
W. Co.;" nnd guarantee certificates accompany them. Silver oases arc stamped
"A.;M. Watch Co., Walthaiii, Mass.,
sterling silver;" and are accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed R. K. Rob-
bins, treasurer. Tho namo "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This cautiou is rendered necessary by roaaon*6f the fact that our cases
tne frequently separated from pur'move-
moats; and put upon worthless movements of other makers und vice-versa,
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the watches, nnd vitiating our
guarantee, whioh is intended to cover
only oiu* complete watches wholly mado
by us. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
that there fo great fraud in tho metal
ipinlity of both gold nud silver cases
now generally sold. We havo dciuon-
Bfcrotod by frequent nssays that many
"old and silver cases offered iu the market nre debased from 10 to '20 per cent,
from the qunlity thoy assume to* bo.
This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at which such
cased watchss have been sold.—Amkiii-

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER VIH.
l!GVO*i'U  UIS   GRASP,
(Contlnuod.)
Ronald made no reply. What did
lie know of hia mother's passionate affection fiiv him, hor last-born, who
came to fill her elnpty house"? What
did he know of the resolve that her
child should be no idol, but should be
given to the Church 'I or of the trembling anxiety with which sho had recognized in him her own quick temper,
•strong feelings, aud ambition? He
only thought that it was hia life-blood,
not hers, that was to be spent, if he
were doomed to a distasteful existence.
That afternoon came a niessuturer
from the Hall, with a Utile note to
Mrs. Bennett.
"Our long'tnlked-of theatricals are to
come off at kit," it ran: "Thursday
night is fixed on, aud I shall not have
one minute to spare, ov I would call
instead of-writing to say that I shall
be very much disappointed if you and
Ronald do not come. I suppose papa
is ri-j-ht in saying that Mr. B-tnnett
would not ..join you, though**I wish ht
"would. You should not be later than
eight,'as I want you to get a good
place, and there will be supper afterward, when I shall expect to hear your
criticisms.   Do come, to please your
'ftfitetionate Muriel. "
, "I'd like to see her act; but it's out
of the question; Mr. Bennett would
never allow it."
"Is that possible, mother? Does he
object even to private theatricals ?"
"An unwholesome thing is not the
wholesomer for being partaken of in
private," said Mr, Bennett, who hoard
his son's remark as he entered.
"And you think that there must be
something unwholesome iu a play ?"
"I didn't say the play was necessarily unwholesome, but the acting of it
"In what way?''
"D'ye think it can be wholesome to
see, or to bo ono of a parcel of girls
dressing up, and thinking of their
rouge, and their clothes, and their
speeches, and showing themselves off,
and very likely jealous of each other's
success 'i"
"I should Bay it depended on the
girls themselves,"
"Is tliat what ye mean to teach—
■**that play-acting's a wise occupation for
'reasonable women ?' asked Bennett,
grimly; but without waiting for a reply, ho turned to his wife nnd handed
her the note, which he had read.
"You'll tell her that you can't go,"
said he.
",Tou might think it over to-night,
-flames. I'm sorry to vex her, and I
should like logo.
"No need to think it ovor, wife.
It is not a fitting thing."
*'J am going," said Ronald, very
•■quietly.
"You mean that?"
"I do, father; a man must stand or
fall by his own conscience,  not another's."
"James! James!" cried Mrs. Bennett, who saw the stern look Bhe dreaded gathering on hor husband's brew,
"come away with me a moment; let
me speak to you before you blame him,
-my dear!" Linking hor hands round
his arm she led him into his study, aud
then dropped upon a chair and burst
into tears.
She was spending hor life-blood on
this afternoon, when she stood between
• the two sho loved, and strove to avert
the impending inevitable quarrel.
Strange to say, either her agitation
or a sudden compunction on Bennett's
part, or a dim perception that he had
been over-severe, made him reluctant*
'ly consent that she shonld accompany
■Ronald to the Hall.
She waa really desirous of seeing the
theatricals, but she wished also to see
her son and Muriel together. They
bad met now and again at the manse;
but on these occasions it was to her
that the girl chatted, and Ronald seldom spoke at all. Perhaps under
•other circumstances it might be differ-
'ent, and Muriel might innocently be
encouraging him in the madness which,
his mother feared, possessed him. If
-so, she must warn her—must sacrifice
her visits, her gay intimacy, if need
wero, at least until Ronald should be
gene.
Ronald himself thought it more than
probable that his mother would, sooner or later, discover his secret, and the
time of discoveiy mattered little to
him. Ho looked forward to the performance with mixed feelings; now
longing for the moment to come when
he might Bit and watch without stint
the face he loved; and again steeling
himself to endure the sight of Leslie
Slaying, perhaps, a lover's part. In
reading this, however, he failed to
understand Muriel's delicate good
taste; it Was, indeed, because of her
fear of such a contingency that the
. theatricals had been deferred.
It had seemed natural at first that
-she and Captain Leslie should be oust
for tho parts of hero and heroine, as
he was undoubtedly the best actor of
the party; but when, iu the quiet of
her own room, Muriel read over tlie
play, and realized that he would kneel
at her feet and utter tliose glowing
words which she had glanced at so
carelessly some days since, they assumed a new aspect, and she knew that
it would bo impossible for her to listen
to them.
It was not difficult, oh one pretext
or another,* to defer the play for a few
a   days, but when all excuses were well
nigh exhausted, Leslie himself came
to her assistance,
"Do you know, I think we could ar
range our parts much better than we
have done, Miss Forbes," said he
snatching a moment when no one was
within hearing.   "Mr. Tennant would
Flay the young squire very well, and
should greatly prefer the part of the
merchant. Would you like that ar*
rangemont?" ;
"Oh yes; X think it would really be
much better," said Muriel, in a tone
of relief.
Leslie bent a littlo over the book,
«s he held it toward her. "I could
not play that part with you before an
audience. The play would oover too
much earnest."
Muriel's cheeks were glowing, but
she glanced up for a socond, and he
read her eyes.
"Tell me," he said, eagerly, "why
have you made so many difficulties
about this affair 1 Was it—forgivo ino
if I am mistaken—was it because that
part was given to me 1"
"Yes,"
My queen! This Is neither lhe
place nor time for more; I see tho
others coming. Sit down and look
over the book here," and with a quick
gesture he placed a chair for her, uud
intercepting with sojne remark tho
ladies who were coming toward them,
gave Muriel time to recover her composure.
An hour later her father sent her to
the library to listen in happy earnest
to her lover; and so it came about that
he did uot appear in* the character on
that Thursday night whon Ronald had
expected him to do so.
CHAPTER IX.
' ON'TIIE BRINK OF DECISION,
• Sir Duncan made somo conditions in
admitting Leslie's suit. The engagement was not to be announced till nfter
the theatricals were over and the
guests had departed, and the marriage
was not to take place till after Muriel's
birthday. He began by demanding
longer grace, but Leslie and Miss
Alicia talked him over.
The latter was more than satisfied.
Her niece had won golden opinions
everywhere, and was justifying them
fully by making a brilliant marriage.
Besides, it was likely to bo a happy
one; aud Miss Alicia was womanly
enough to admit she was very glad ft
should be so. She was more tenderhearted than of old; and though she
would uot have tolerated tho idea of a
marriage made only for lovo, it was a
great thing when rank and fortune
brought love as part of the dower.
Of course the theatricals wore a complete success. There is nothing like
genuine happiness for developing unsuspected talents and redoubling every
power, Muriel acted as bIio never
would act again, and electrified her
audience by her spirit and pathos.
She was giving voice, in fact, to the
new feelings that had rushed into existence; and as the play happened to
express much of her own sentiment,
she wns carried away by it as sho never
could have been but for the event that
had stirred her being to its depth.
In one scene, in particular, she spoke
with dignified fervor. A lover, doubt
ing for a moment betwecen conflicting
claims of love nnd duty, consults his
lady as to the course he should pursue,
Turning upon him with a voice of
scorn, she exclaims—

xLadff. Pity's scanty crumbs-
Fit for the craven that   dare win no
more!"
The utter scorn of tho closing linos,
the flashing eye, the proud mien of
the speaker brought tho house down,
and the words and look seemed to bum
themselves in on Ronald's brain.
"Traitor to truth, and slave to every
tongue!" Was uot Unit just his case i
or, rather, would it not be his case if
he were to yield blindly against every
instinct of nature and Bcruple of conscience to his father's will ? Why, aftor
hearing her speak to-night, the tone
ef her voice would never cense to
haunt him were he to play the craven's
part. She had decided his fate for liim
in uttering that speech, and he would
lose no time in telling his determination, I
Having arrived at this conclusion
during the brief space of time that
elapsed butween the acts, he felt lighter-hearted, and attended more generally to the rest of the performance. Already a weight seemed to be lifted off
his shoulders, and his elastic nature
begun to re-assert itself.
Boon tho piny was over, and the
guests, leaving the extemporized theatre by a ditferent door, moved into
the long pieturo*gallery, whore tho
actors, still in costume, joined them
and received their congratulations,
Mra. Dennett, from a recess where she
had found a seat, saw Muriel's eyes
searching the crowd, and exchanged a
bright glance with her. As rapidly as
she could, the girl came forward.
"Well, mamsie, how good of you to
come! Did you like it 1"
"My dear, I think it was charmingly acted, .and the pioce iB full of spirit,
Every one is praising you!"
"I hope you were pleased too, Konald ?"
"I wns much more than pleased,
Miss Forbes. I wns going to nsk if I
might have the play to read over?"
"Of course; I will send it to morrow.   Now  come   away   to  supper.
There is to be no formal arrangement."
"Then may I take you in. r?" said
Ronald, quickly, oifering his arm.
"Oh, I am Borry I can't; I am en-
gnged/' answered Muriel, with unusual want of ease, and blushing brightly;
"but will you take Miss Fraser ?" she
added, as a young lady came up to
them on her father's arm. "Dr. Fraser will take you, Mamsie."
While tht elders exchanged cordial
greetings, for they were old acquaintances, Ronald with a bad grace gnve
his arm to Miss Fraser. All his touchy
temper was aroused at the thought
that Muriel Would not go in to supper
with him in the presence of her grand
friends; nor wns he. much comforted
by tho light that dwned upon him ns
he saw an actor, whose disguise he
had not penetrated, carry her off
with an air of appropriation.
