.Scientific Miscdlanij.
The ftefensc.
j The two Rubtitiind organs of tlm
provincial government art out in
dtfwiM of. their paymaster. And
mob a defense I': The' 'big one dia-
cot tn inconaiatency in (our article of;
Sftturtja j. ^ b«^HSj$ A??1 .ftPflfi
toruey-general for the judicial muddle, and at the name time lamented
the ■ consequences to the country of
tM>m(idftl0.' We cannot see any
inconsistency whatever in that It
then.proceeds to plead for. consideration and sympathy because, as it
asserts, the attorney-general intended
it all for the beat. He may have
done so ; but that ia a poor plea to
advance for his blundering legislation, and really amounts to a tacit
admission of incompetency.. Conceding good intention?*, these' do not
qualify for the high and responsible
position occupied by that gentleman.
But the local organ adopts a still
more extraordinary line of defense.
It slf-.rU out by deprecating the conduct of what it suits its purpose to
designate tho "Opposition pr^ss," for
"heaping abnae on our indefatigable
attorney-general." The Colonist can
apeak for itself; but in no'far a a
this journal is concerned, we have,
tu say that it is not iu "ojipoMtioii"
in the sense in which that term ia
employed, The Cou'Mma.v, we
need hardly remind the reader, ia a
thoroughly independent journal. It
deals with governments and courts
aud questions upon tlieir merits, and
it would experience far mure satisfaction in approving titan condemning. If its criticisms are generally
hostile, it is thu fault of the government, who do not afford more frequent
opportunity for favorable comment.
Let the government do right, und
we ahull ho only "too utterly tuo"
happy to accord due credit. Su}1!
the organ—"These writers are per
fectly aware that, iu the plain, the
atatutes enacted in this province are
more rarely sujbected to the penalty
of disallowance than in any other
province of the Dominion." Whew !
What a whopper 1 We are perfectly
aware that iu proportion tu the number of bills enacted by our Legislature during the present regime, Columbia has had more disallowed
than all the other provinces combined. More than that. Taking
those disallowed and those ascertained beyond reasonable doubt to
be bad, and there will remain less
than one-third of ull Walkem's bill:.
on the statute-books t "The Judges,
we opine, are for the people, not the
people for the Judges," says the organ. True, 0 organ ; but it waa
for enunciating the same sentiment,
a few weeks ago, that you charged
ui with grossly insulting the Judges.
Our col)temporary admits that the
deoiiion of the Judges ii right, "but
the people are still the gainers, since
they can now adopt the best mod*
of laying the whole matter before
the Federal Government." This
sort of gain to the people recalls tho
exclamation of the general—"Another such victory, and we are lost I"
How Australia Does it.—Says the
San ' Francisco Bulletin:—"Tho Australian! are more practical in dealing
with the Chines* question than we are.
They proceed upon the theory that
the way to stop the coming of China-
1 men is* to prevent themi from coming
A bill has just been passed by tho
Assembly of Victoria which, provides,
• lift the (irst place, thaf Mm number of
-Chinese fhat may be 'brought to tlit
I country in any vonei shall n«.t exceed
one for every one hundred tons of the
, vessol, and .it imposes a poll tax upon
every immigrant arriving by sea <ir by
land, Every Chinese resident in the
Colony before' the passage of the net

on all riciHsiohs a oertilicnto that he is

Electrical exhibitions are likely to
become epidemic. '■mJIoso upon the
Paris exhibition came a proposition to
hold one at the Crystal Palace, London; and a like project is now on foot
at St. Petersburg, j Americans are
singularly brckward in organising such
an enterprise.
It is shown by M. Paul Bert's investigations that green light hinders
the growth of plants, which soon
wither and die as if In darkness. M.
Ilegnard finds that the plants specially,
require red light, and soon cease to
thrive if the red rays are removed
from sunlight.
Frequent impurities^sro^ojtin^ by
microscopic inveHtigafiohs To exist in
the diamond. Organic matter, carbon, aud bubbles of gas are common
impurities. Quartz, chlorite, pyrite,
and hematite have recently been discovered in diamonds, and small crystals of topaz have also been seen.
Paul Marcoy has described a leaf of
the giant water lily Victoria regia)
found iu Lake Nuna, Peru, as measuring 24 feet !*] inches in circumference,
and weighing between 13 and It
pounds, One of tho flowers was 4
feet 2 inches iu circumference, and
weighed Hi pounds, The outer petals
wero 9 inches long.
Some valuable relies discovered at
Kiuevah, in tlie form of tine ivory
carvings, allowed signs uf crumbling
on arrival in ISugtaiid. Concluding
that loss of albumen was the tnuisti ut'
tlio decay, Prof. Owen boiled the
articles. The experiment proved entirely successful, and thu ivory was
restored to its original llrmiiess aud
solidity.
M. Gayon has been studying tho
phylloxera of the Frolic!) vineyards
with tlio object of discovering, it p ia-
stble, some parasitic organism winch
might lib propagated and made tu destroy tilt! phylloxera, lio has found
such organisms, and lias striven to
cultivate them, but with doubtful
results. He is pursuing thu investigation further. The ravages of the
phylloxera have become a source uf
great loss to the vinu growers of
France, and any researches promising
ultimate relief fi'utn thu pest are eagerly eitcuuraged.
Remarkable wind pressures are experienced iu India. On October 5th,
1804, two passenger trains, one of
eight vehicles aud the other uf twelve,
wero upset ou thu Eastern Uengal railway, ull the cars being overturned.
Several cars were started from sittings
by the force of tho wind. On September 21, 1878, a long train was traveling on the seme railway at a speed of
about eight miluB au hour, and was
brought to a standstill by a heavy
storm and forced back about a mile
witli full steam and brakes against it.
It was found dillictilt to proceed after
detaching half of the train, instances
of this kind aro said to bo frequent on
Indian railways.
The great red spot on the planet
Jupiter still attracts a largo share of
attention from astronomical observers.
This spot is of au elliptical form with
tapering ends, aud covers a vast area,
heine 211,001) miles long uud 8,300
broad. The mysturioits appearance
was first observed more than three
years ago, since which time its form
seems not to have materially altered,
although the ordinary dark bands
crossing Jupiter's disc are in a state
of continual-change. Speculations as
to the nature of the red spot lmvo
been numerous but not vory satisfactory. The dark lines across the planet
are believed to be due to atmospheric
movements, and thu suggestion that
tho red spot is a portion of thu body
of the planet wliich has iu sonic unknown way becomo visiblo through the
atmospheric envelope seems as plausible as any offered.
The probability that nearly every
large town or city will soon be supplied with large quantities of electricity for lighting purposes has given
rise to cunsidoi-Able interest in the
plan uf making use of the same sup.
tily for producing power for light household work. Several small motors havo
been devised tn uieot the expected
demand. Tho first of thesu littlo machines was constructed about three
years ago by M. Marcel Doprez, and
was found to work effectively. A
second apparatus of this kind has for
some time boon used by M. Trouve,
an electro-magnet being used in place
of the permanent steel magnet of
Depress. This motor drives a sewing
machine very readily, although it is
of very small size. Trouve's little
electrical canoe at the Paris electrical
exbibtion was propelled by some of
these engines, and M. Tissandier has
suggested their use for balloon steering. The last and bust motor is that
of Mr. Griscon, the American electrician. One of these powerful little
machines, four and a half inches Vug,
and weighing little mure than two
pounds, will run a sewing machine
vory rapidly with a small expenditure
nf eloctric energy. The lack nf labor-
saving conveniences iu the household
has often been deplored, but theintro'
duo tin li of electricity seems to offer a
source of power which may servo iu
many ways to lighten the toil of the
weary housewife.

The Opening speech.
It is one of tlie peculiarities of
responsible government that the
"speech from the throne." is not the
apeueh of the sovereign or tlie representative of the sovereign,, but of
the Ministers. Taking our own
little government as an illustration,
tha Lieutenant-Governor lias no
option hut tc speak whatever his
Ministers put into his mouth, or dismiss them and seek other advisers.
In JimLico to the Lieutenant-Governor, the speech which we publish
this morning should be read iu the
light of that fact. The attempt to
make a little capital out of the Da-
Cosmos mission reminds one of the
old saw about drowning men catching it straws. To those unacquainted
with the facts, the steps taken by
the Dominion Government to place
the suction of tho railway between
Emory and the sea under contract
would appear to he the direct result
of the DeCoumos mission. Indeed
it is so asserted. But, unfortunately
for that pretension, it is already
known that the steps for having the
section referred to placed tinder contract this year were taken long before tht) missionary reached London.
As a matter of fact that policy was
determined upon before the petition
to the Queen was written, and the
one had no more to do with the
other than the silly haveriugs of our
local contemporary have to do with
the wonderful growth of the terminal city. It is a pity the modesty
of the premier did not permit him
to go one step farther, and claim :is
the result of the DeGosmos mission
tho letting of the Einory-Savoiia
section of the railway, A slightly
increased stretch of the imagination
would have done it. But it is gratifying to learn that the justice of
Columbia's claim has been recognised
by Her Majesty's Secretary of State
—albeit we were under the impression that a similar recognition had
been vouchsafed by successive Secretaries to Columbia's missionaries
during all these years, Lord Kim-
bei'ly has, however, introduced a
slight variation, whereat we should
imagine Vancouver will not rejoice.
"A light line of railway from Nanaimo to Esquimalt" signifies that
the Island railway is no longer to be
regarded as a part of tho Canadian
Pacific Railway, because the term
"light" is synonomous with "narrow
gauge." The graving dock is
adroitly dismissed with two lines
and n. half. In enumerating tho
various industries of the province,
it ia strange that lumber, second
only to fish and coal, should have
been altogether overlooked. The
holding of a provincial exhibition
this year might ho worthy of government support, if one only knew
its nature and that it is to be upon
a basis entitling it to be called "provincial." Ifc was a mistake to introduce info the speech matter in tlie
nature of argument hearing against
the recent decision of the Supreme
Court. It is so like the premier to
take a sly hit at the Judges from
behind the throne. The people will
no doubt bo delighted to learn that,
during the past year the revenue of
the country exceeded expenditure,
more especially as they arc aware
that the process by which that
gratifying result has been brought
about is the very simple one of refraining from expending the appropriations of last session—vide the
vote for New Westminster school
— and allowing public works to
fall into decay and ruin. The
expression of regret and abhorrence on account of the assassination of President Garfield is most
proper, and will be joined in by a
As for the rest of tho somewhat
verbose speech, it is little more than
mero "padding," and calls not for
comment.
Travesty of Justice.
On Wedncsdny it was staled that
a further postponement of tlie sitting of the County Court in this
city till the 1st proximo had been
made. Now we have to announce
a still further postponement till the
15th proximo. This makes the
fourth postponement, and poople begin to ask themselves whether or
not tho Judges are toying with jus
tice. That the matter is rapidly
assuming an alarming aspect can no
longer be concealed. It is a very
short time since we wero plumiug
ourselves upon tho majesty of British law on this sido of tlie forty-
ninth parallel of latitude, as compared with Lynch law on the other
side. But are we not drifting towards a possible condition of things
too well calculated to culminate in
scenes similar to those wliich so
recently disgraced the streets of
Seattle 1 If people cannot have
Judge Fog, shall they he blamed for
appealing to Judge Lynch? If the
temple of justice is closed, as ifc
virtually has been here, why, there
seems to bo nothing left for it but
to take the law into one's own hands.
That such will bo the tendency of
the present state of affairs—practical denial of justice--cannot be
doubted. In the event of a dispute
arising in any of the outlying settlements, what could ho more natural, under existing circumstances,
than that the disputants should
fall to and fight it out? Tho best
man would win, which is not always
the case in onr law courts. And
who is responsible for this disgraceful state of matters? According to
the constitution the Government
alone is responsible. But let us
look beyond theoretical dogmas and
see how matters stand. There are
within eight hours steam—six hours,
if the stokers would only do their
duty—three Judges ; but whenever
duty calls them hero they suddenly
become "doubled up with rheumatism." The people cry for justice,
nnd the only answer from "Judge-
town" is another mocking "postponement." That answer may be sent
once too often! Who is to blame?
Party would answer, "Tho Attorney-General." Rising above party,
and speaking as become th an independent journalist, wo say, "The
Judges as well as the Attorney-
General." Undeniably the Attorney General has been the primary
occasion of all tho troublo. But
the time has now come when wo
fear it must be said tlmt the Judges
cannot be held altogether blameless.
Railway combinations.
The twin announcements mado in
these columns on Wednesday, that tho
C. P, II. Syndicate had bought out
Onderdonk and that Vanderbilt had
bought into the Syndicate are, it' true,
fraught with important consequences
to this provinco—possibly to the Dominion. In a former article, wc pointed out some of the probable results of
a transfer of tho Onderdonk contracts
to the C, P. R. Syndicate, so that it
will not be necessary to go over the
same ground now. The entrance into
tho Canadian Syndicate of so formidable an American capitalist as Vanderbilt would undoubtedly impart additional color to the objection already
urged by the Opposition against thu
American complexion of the combination. It would seem to point to the
probability of a terrible race between
two of the most formidable railway
combinations ever formed. With Vanderbilt added to the C. P. R. Syndicate, aud with Jay Gould aud Villard
in the Northern Paaitic, these two gigantic rivals become simply immense-
enough to make tlie very continent
tremble. Without Vanderbilt the race
westward would have been a close one.
With Vanderbilt, the Canadian is certain of winning. Its ultimate supremacy would be assured. The Northern
Pacific combination may build a railway lino as fast as their rivals; but
thay cannot nuke the country through
which it must pass equal to ours. They
cannot shortou their mileage or reduce
their altitudes. Doubtless Vanderbilt
has taken in all the advantages possessed by our line, aud has seized upon
the opportunity of at once circumventing a formidable opponent and adding
to his own millions. Nor would British Columbia bo tho last or the least to
fei.d the ell'ucts of the presence of the
great money king. Railway work on
this side of the Rocky Mountains would
bo accelerated—increased in volume
and velocity, and tho country would
be benefitted. Thu Island, too, would
have its railway, for Vanderbilt would
not be disposed to haggle about the
terms upon which tho vast coal stores
could be acquired. He at least would
comprehend the value of these stores
—their irresistible influence upon commerce and empire. Thero are, of course
those, and we shall not say that we are
not of them, who will discover possible
political danger to Canada in such a
combination. The power, both political and financial which the Canadian
Syndicate would wield would be simply
enormous. Supposing that power were
exercised for the purpose of carry i.-g
Canada into the great Republic. Or
imagine the two great railway combinations no longer rivals, but amalgamated and their combined power directed towards obliterating the artificial boundary line which divides tho
two Anglo-Saxon peoples On this continent. Can anyone doubt the result?
Such a combination would be stronger
than governments. These thoughts
may bo considered too visionary to
claim attention; but it can do no harm
to look such possibilities squarely in
tho face and guard against them, if
it can bo done.

A Coincidence.
In its leading article of Tuesday tho
Colonist Baid:—"The Guardian will
scarcely venture to assert that it ii not
a fact that the diaillloweO. acta of thu
British Columbia parliament, largely exceed in number that of any other
province."
In its loading article of Wednesday
the Guardian falsified tho prediction
of tho Colonist by making the astounding aHscrtion that "lit the main, the
statutes enacted in this Province arc
more rarely subjected to the penally
of disallowance, than in any other Province of the Dominion."
Contemptible!
On the 3rd inst. Capt, Lavvia, of tho
steamer Princess Louise, rei|U0sted lls
to announce that certain of the buoys
at the mouth of the Fvasof were out
of position. Accordingly the following appeared in our mue of the-4th:
"Our attention has boon directed tn
the fact that buoys 13 and 14 on the
Sand heads have drifted out of position. Capt. Revely will please make
a note uf this." *

Member for this city; Messrs. McGil-
livray and Harris, Members for the

Scarce!)' Warranted.
In an article upon the subject of carrying the Canadian Pacific Railway by
the Southern route, our esteemed contemporary of the Inland Sentinel snys:
—"Attention from time to time has
.been drawn to the difficulties of the
Mountain range, "Bogie Pass, etc., but
the Syndicate has a different class of
Engineers iu charge to those who spent
their time in post days enjoying themselves and squandering the people's
money —leaving many a disgraceful
sceno tin record in Kootenay and other
places." This is a sweeping charge to
make against the stall' of Engineers
employed on the Canadian Pacific Railway, and wo cannot think that it is
warranted by facts. That thero were
nn the staff some Engineers who would
have been better off ia quite possible.
Indeed it would be strange if there
were not, considering that political influence sometimes prevailed over professional merit. But there were undoubtedly many compotunt gentlemen
on the staff who did their duty faithfully and welt, and it is to bo rcgrettod
that such a a weeping accusation should
be brought against a body of gentlemen who have no means of defending
themscIVes. Without the slightest de-
siro to question the ability of these
"new brooms" which are going to
sweep all intervening obstacles out of
the way, and while earnestly Imping
that tho southern run to may prove to be
practicable, we would not forget that
the Rodgerses are not yet "out of the
hush" and that "crowing" is premature. Neither should it be forgotten
that the Syndicate Engineers aro not
hampered by the gradients and curvatures imposed under the Sandford
Fleming regime. Theso restrictions
have been thrown to tbo winds, tho
character of the road in these respects
having been "degraded," so to speak,
wliich makes a wonderful difference in
overcoming engineering difficulties.
Mining nt Yale.
As spring approaches interest in
Yale milling enterprises increases.
The scene of prospective operations is
"Sawmill Flat," opposite the town.
The Flume Company have everything
in a stato of readiness for active work
as soon as the mining season opens.
There is another company ready also,
with a force pump, by means uf which
it is proposed to raise water from tho
river to wash the pay-dirt. Meanwhile, we understand the whole of the
ground, extending down to aud including a portion of the famous Hills
Bar, has been staked oil' into mining
claims, held for the most part by private individuals. These claim-holders will, of course, havo to look to the
ditch company or the pump company
for a supply of water, and we hear 50
cents all inch per deiin named as tlio
price likely to bo demanded by Iho
ditch company. The preieuce of gold
in paying quantities appears to be
conceded on all hands, and it is to bo
hoped that no obstructions will intervene to prevent the successful develop-
ment of tho ground. There is room
enough for a good mining camp, and
we sincerely hope there may be gold
enough to richly rcmtinoratc the miners. Thero can be hule doubt, that,
should these diggings "pan out" well, it
will be the commencement of extensive mining operations on the Fraser.
The Hastings tiuteriaittrauHt.
(Oorrojpoailenceof the IirltUli C.tuinlil.in.)
Tho entertainment given at thu
Mess-house, Hastings Sawmill, Tuesday night, was a complete success.
The music was excellent and was furnished by Mr. Fannin (alto), Mr. Mc-
Ewan and Mr. Rusta (violins), Mr,
Sullivan (harmonium), Mr. Johns
(piccolo), and Mr. Irwin (cornet),
Tho first part of the untertaiumaiit
consisted of -singing, tlie vocalists being
Mrs. Alexander, Miss Walks, and
Messrs. Ditchani, Ruiinuf, Ploaco, and
Miller. Afterward a charade, entitled
"Matrimony," was given. Thu performers all acquitted the-inspires well,
being Mrs. Alexander, Mrs. Gillis,
and Mrs. Geo. Black, and Messrs.
Rehouf, Caldwell, and Johnson. Mrs.
McCartney ably presided at the piano
during tho singing and played several
pieces with great acceptance. About
10 o'clock the room was cleared and
dancing biigan and was kept up with
much spirit Until past midnight.
Moodyville contributed largely to the
audience, thu steam forty having
brought over a large party, among
them Senator Nelson. New Westminster was also represented, Mrs.
Diekinsoii and the Misses Dickinson,
Mrs. Homer and Miss May Homer,
Mrs. Faldl'ng, Capt. Irving, Mr. Fabling, and others being present. The
entertainment, which was given in aid
of the church, waa not only a delightful social event, but, we are plea-ted to
learn, a financial success.
Opening of tli3 Lsgislature.
The Governor's Speech
SPECIAL DESPATCH.
Victouu, Feb. 23.—The Fifth
Session of tho Third Parliament of
British Columbia was opened nt 3
o'clock this afternoon by His Excellency tbo Lieutenant Governor, who
delivered tho following
SPEKCII pnoa the throne :
Mr,  Speaher  and   Gentlemen of the
Legislative Assemblg .*—
In meeting you in your Legislative
capacity for the first time since I have
bad the honor of being Lieutenant-
Governor, I gladly avail myself of the
opportunity for expressing the pleasure
I feel in extending to you a most cordial welcoino aud for assuring you tlmt
1 shall, during my olticial term, be over
ready to earnestly cooperato with you
in promoting, as far as possible, the
prosperity of our province,
In accordance with your resolution
of last session relating to the early construction of portions of tho Canadian
Pacific Railway within the province,
my predecessor forwardod the petition
which you addressed to Hor Majesty
on the subject, aud the Hon. Mr.
DeCosmos was, as you desired, ap
pointed your delegate, with iuatruc
lions to' proceed to Loudon and personally advocate the claims of the
provinco as set forth in the petition.
Vou will be gratified to learn that tier
Majesty's Secretary of State for tho
Colonies (Lord Kiinberly) has specially
desired that you should be informed
that the petition had been laid before
the Queen, and that Her Majesty was
pleased to receive it very graciplialy.
After careful consideration of tho
case presented by your delegate, Lord
Kiinberly was pleased to express the
following opinion, that "The construction of a light lino of Railway from
Nanaimo to Ksqitimalt, tlio extension,
without delay, of the Hue to Port
Moody, and tho grant of reasonable
compensation, in mousy, for the failure to complete the work within tho
term of ten years, as specified in the
conditions of Union, would oiler a fair
basis for a settlement of tho whole
question." Tho justice of your claim
has thus been rocnyuized by the Imperial authorities and you will hive
observed, with satisfaction, that the
Dominion Cioveriinient havo already
taken steps to carry into effect your
request for the immediate construction
of the lino between Port Moody and
Yalo. I regret, however, to state that
the question relating to construction
of the Island section and to compensation have not yet been finally sot tied;
but they are now under consideration.
The papers In connection with your
petition will be placed beforo you
shortly.
Full information with respect to the
Graving Dock works will also be given
to you at an early date.
In compliance witli vnur resolution
ot the 8th of February, 1881; the
Cariboo Trunk Road was divided into
sections and tenders invited for their
maintenance. Contracts for four of
the Dootioiio lmvo heon let. The details of this and other public works
will bo furnished to you tht'Otigh the
usual channel.
It is very gratifying to find that the
Fisheries of our coasts and rivers have,
during the lust year, shown a marked
improvement, the total product for
1881 being nearly §1,454,000, or more
than double that of 1S80. This industry promises to be one of tho moat
valuable to the country, as it is capable
of almost indefinite expansion, owing
to the abundance of fish, its superior
quality, and the natural facilities for
successfully, carrying on the enterprise.
The output of coal in 1881, though
largo, falls slightly below that of the
previous year. Tho yield in 1881 was
228,357 tons, of which 180.323 tons
were exported to foreign markots.
It is advisable that explorations for
mineral and arable lauds should be
encouraged as far as our means will
permit, and I shall therefore ask you
to place a sum of money at my disposal for the purpose.
Owing to the unusual inclemency of
the weather in Cariboo, it is to be regretted that the miners havo not been
as fortunate as in former and more
favorable seasons,
A bill for tho purpose of consolidating the mining laws has been prepared
and will lie submitted for your con
aideration.
The fanners in the lower sections of
tho province have, I am happy to state,
boen prosperous, but, owing to early
and unprecedented mow storms, those
hi the Interior have unfortunately not
mot with that success which their
labors fairly entitled them to oxpect,
I may here mention that a project is
on foot for the holding of a provincial
Exhibition during the current year
The scheme is one which I venture to
think is well worthy of your assistance,
as the benefits of such exhibitions
have been clearly demo list rated else
where. I shall, consequently, request
you to aid mo in promoting its success.
liy n recent decision of the Supreme
Court of Britisn Columbia it has been
declared that that Court is not a Provincial but a Dominion Court. Under
tbo British North America Act, the
Province is responsible for thu administration of Justice, and is moreover
empowered to make laws in relation to
the constitution,; organization and main
temuice of Provincial Courts. Tho
Supreme Court being considered a Provincial Court, your body has annually
voted considerable sunns of money for
its maintenance* By your Terms of
Uniuiir Canada, ns you are aware, assumed the payment of the salaries and
allowances of the Judges ef the Superior and County Courts of British Col
unibia. In other Provinces of the
Dominion the Superior Courts, have
iii ways regarded themselves as subject
to provincial legislation and have been
doalt with accordingly from confederation onwards. Under tliose circumstances your earnest attention
will bo directed to this subject,
with a view of establishing the constitutional tights of the province in re
yard to it.
I am able ,to announce that during
the past fiscal year the revenue of the
country exceeded expenditure, tho
public debt was diminished, and the
bonds of tho Proviucu were in demand,
The public accounts down to tbe
end of 1881 will be laid before you,
and the estimates for the coining year
will bo transmitted to you for- con-
si deration,
I feel assured that you will join with
me in deploring the death of the late
President of the United States, and in
expressing a mutual nbborrence of the
crime which led to his sad and untimely end.
In tlie discharge of your important
duties this session I humbly trust that
your deliberations may receive the
blessing of-, the Almighty, and promote tho general welfare of our
Province.

Tub Lion and thu Lam*.—-Mrs.
Lincoln, who raised and petted a pair
of lion cubs, on Howard street, a few
years ago, recently paid a visit to one
of them, the lion Emperor, The
huge beast recognized hur and manifested Ins delight by the most extravagant demonstrations. Ho licked her
hand, sprang up, and placing Ins paws
ou the grating, tried to force his head
through Liu bars. Mrs. Lincoln I**'*
her face against his vast jaws and put
her arms through tint bars around his
neck, and tho monstrous animal purred
like a groat eat. Ho put out his paw
to "shako hands" at his mistress' coin-
maud, and then, as if ovorcomo with
joy, lay down and rolled over and
over, uttering meanwhile queer littlo
grunts and growls, and behaving altogether like n frisky kitten.

the ensuing election of a Representative to fill the scat now vacant in the
IIousc of Commons. If I should be
elected to fill this honorable position,
1 will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that mv future course of action
may meet with tlie approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when 1 had the honor of representing you in the Legislative Council
of this Colony. If elected, I will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
I will urge upon the Government
the necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, now'hcld in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
1 will endeavor to show the Govern.
ment the benefit which would be derived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As British Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
material required for tlie Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries!
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, it will receive
my*earnest support.
Owing to the transitory state of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise! in dealing with
these, I will see that the interests of
my constituents are protected.

WHAT THE SHEPHERD SAW
A Tale of Four Moonlight Nights,
(Concluded,)
While leaning against the Devil's
Door and thinking on these things, Ito
became conscious that he wai not the
only inhabitant of the Down. A
figure in white was moving across his
front with long, uoisoless stridoa.
Willi stood motiuiiless; and when the
form drew quite near he perceived it
to he that of the duko himself, in his
night shirt—apparently waiting in his
sleep. Not to alarm the old man,
Wills clung closo to the shadow of the
atone. The duke went straight on
into the hollow. There lie knelt down,
and began scratching the earth with
his hands like a badger. After a few
minutes he arose, Bighcd heavily, und
retraced his steps as he had come.
Fearing that he might harm himself,
yet unwilling to arouse him, the steward followed noiselessly. The duke
kept on his path unerringly, entered
the park, and made for the house,
where he let himself in by a window
that stood open—the one, probably,
by which he had come out. Wills
softly closed the window behind his
patron, nnd then retired homeward
to await the revelations of the morning, deeming it unnecessary to alarm
the house.
However, he felt uneasy during the
remainder of the night, no less on account of the duke's personal condition
than because of that which was imminent next day. Eurly in the morning
he called at Verncombe Towers. The
blinds were down, and there was some-
tiling singular upon the porter's face
when he opened the door. Tho steward
inquired for the duke.
The man's voice was subdued aR he
replied, "Sir, I am sorry to say that
his Grace is dead! He loft his room
some time in the night, and wandered
about nobody knows where. On returning to the upper floor he lost his
balance and fell down stairs."
The steward told the tale of the
Down before tho vicar had spoken.
Wills had always intended to do so
after the death of the duke. The consequences to himself he underwent
cheerfully; but his life was not prolonged. He died, a farmer at the
Cape, when still somewhat under
thirty-nine years of age.
The splendid Verncombe breeding
flock is as renowned as ever, and, to
the eye, resembles in ovary particular
what it was in earlier times; but the
animals which composed it on the occasion of the events here recorded are
divided by many ovine generations
from its members now. Lambing
Corner has long siiico ceased to be
used for lambing purposes, though the
name still lingers on as the appellation
of the spot. This abandonment of
site mny lie partly owing to tho removal
of tha high furze bushes which lent
such convenient shelter at that date.
Partly, too, it may be due to another
circumstance. For it is said by present shepherds in that district that
during the nights of Christmas week
flitting shapes are seen in the open
space around the trilithon, together
with the gleaming of a weapon and
the shadow of a man dragging a burden into the hollow. Hut of those
things there is no certain testimony.
Selections,

fresh raw onion, and in two months
his hair grew out.
The principal of the Turkish debt
amounts to 81,000,000,000 (one thousand millions of dollars!) and the arrears of interest are about ?325,000,-

President Arthur occupies the room
in the White House in which President Taylor and President Lincoii'a
littlo son died, and in whicli the Prince
of Wales onco slept.
The young lady attendants at the
Court Theatre, London, are now clad
in a yellow waistcoat, navy-blue swallow-tailed dress coat, erect collar, and
black silk evening tie.
Tito Now York papers aro tolling of
a man who has au arm buried at Quebec, a leg at Liverpool, two fiuger» at
Olaspow, and tho rest of his body is
stirring around in New York.
General Robert Tombs says: "Gui-
teau ought to be kicked to death by a
mule." The Leavenworth Times alluded to him as the white-livered cuss
who murdered President Garfield.
President Arthur's life was recently
insured in aChicago company for $20,-
000, and the application elicited the
information that thero are $80,000
already insured in other companies.
Whon a man and woman leave a
neighborhood because it is, in tlieir
opinion, populated by a "low class uf
people," tho latter generally look upon
the move as a good one for the locality.
By a return just made it appears
that thoro aro in England 4,000 paupers who aro ending their days in
work-houses because their suvings
were engulfed by fraudulent friendly
societies,
Thoro are two Congressmen now
serving who commenced life as pages
in the National House, and a Senator
whoso start in life was as a page in the
Senate. Tho Congressmen aro Town-
Bhend of Illinois, and Wise of Virginia.      |
The Ret. Robert Collyer made the
romark on one occasion that during
his twenty years' residence in Chicago
he had not known of a singlo man who
had come' prominently to the front in
any pursuit who was born and brad in
a largo city.
A lady about to marry was warned
that her intended husband, although a
good man, was very eccentric. "Well,"
sho said, "if he is very unlike other
men, he is more likely to be a good
husband."
A Washington literary crank has
made 136 different readings of tho
line, "The plowman homeward plods
his weary way," without losing tho
sense or giving mortal uti'onue to Lind-
ley Murray.
At a game dinner in Chicago thirty-
eight kinds of wild fowl wero served,
and tho bill of fare also included black
bear, mountain sheep, buffalo, antelope, bison, elk, rabbit, squirrel, wood-
chuck and 'possum.
Tho poet says: "A kiss without a
moustache is like an egg without sal
May be it is, may be it isn't; we can't
say positively, for the girl we've been
used to kissing for the last twenty-
five years didn't wear moustaches,
When a Cahfornian pauses with his
glass of beer within six inches of his
moustache, and says ho killed sixty-
three wild geese at one shot, his statement is accepted as the solemn truth,
unless he tries to beat the barkeeper,
Beecher contends that ho could cure
the most rabid Socialist in five minutes by giving him $500,000. Henry,
wo are a rabid Socialist, by inspiration, and if you can guarantee a cure
on one application you can send on
your medicine.
Twist the old-fashioned rushlight
Aud the new-fashioned Brush-light,
The difference is mighty indeed;
But yet there is ono light—
The God-given sunlight,
That science can rib er supersede.
A railroad conductor was recently
chosen deacon of a church When it
became his duty to tako up a collection, ho surprised the congregation by
starting out with the characteristic
ejaculation, "Tickets, gentlemen!"
The contribution that day was large.
Governor and Mrs. Blackburn of
Kentucky entertained a thousand
guests at an old-fashioned "quilting" a
short time ago. The quilt was actually
finished by divers young ladies and
gentlemen, and the evening was ended
with quaint old reels and jigs danced
to the music of "darkey" fiddlers. Tho
young ladies were attired in costumes
of the last century, some of them wearing the treasured dresses of their great-
grandmothers, Dr. C. C. Graham of
Louisville, who had not, danced for
eighty years, was particularly active in
the reel. He is now ninety-eight years
old, and the way ho cut the "pigeon-
ring" is said to have been wonderful.
Mutual Admiration with a Tinge
of Sarcasm.—Major Pooro writes of
Mr. Blaine's farewell entertainment
to the Diplomatic Corps:—"When Mr.
Blaine escorted President Arthur to
the table ho handed him a glass of
punch, saying: 'Mr. President, I drink
to tho success of your Administration!1
'And I, in return,' remarked the President, 'drink to the success of yours.'
This reminded a gentleman present of
an incidental the Yorktown celebration.
A few gentlemen wero speaking one
night of the bi-ceutonnial, a hundred
years thence, when President Arthur
remarked. 'One of your great-grandchildren will be President then, Mr.
Blaine!' 'Ah!' replied the Secretary,
'1 don't propose to wait that long.'"
The Almighty Dollar.
The Toronto, Canada, Globe has the
following:
"Brother Smith, what does this
mean ?"
"What does what mean V
"Bringing a nigger to this church.''
"But ho is intelligent nnd well educated."
"Who cares for that? He is a
nigger "
"But ho is a friend of mine."
"What of that? Must you, therefore, insult the whole congregation ?"
"But he is a Christian, and belongs
to the same denomination."
"What do I care for that? Let
him go and worship with his fellow-
niggors."
"But he is worth 55,000,000," said
the merchant.
"Worth what?"
"Five million dollars."
"Worth §5,000,000! Brother Smith,
introduce me."
Bret llartc and Augustus Sain.
The following good story regarding
those boon friends and wits, Bret
Unite and Augustus Sala, will, doubt-
leas, bo now to our readers, chiefly
from the reason that it has just been
written fresh to order, at the urgent
request of the printer's devil, who is
looking up copy.
One day, while walking arm and arm
down Bond street, in London, Sala
suddenly said:
"What on otrth makes you walk so
closely to tho shop windows, old fellow Y
"To avoid being run into," replied
Harto grimly. "The fact is, your
countrymen wear so many glasses
screwed into their eyes that they cannot see where they're going, to save
'em."
"Ah!" replied tho English journalist
serenely.
Later in the day they chanced to bo
passing tho Laughaiu hotel, whereupon Sala suddenly seized Harte by
the arm, and hurried him tu the opposite side of the street.
"What the douco does this moan ?"
askod our Edinburgh Consul. "Did
you see a ghost or your tailor?"
"Well, no," said Sala, innocently,
as he removed Ins hat and inspected
it anxiously, "but the fact is, that an
wo both wore silk hats, it wouldn't do
for us to stay on that side. There are
so many of your countrymen at the
Langham, and thny aro spitting out of
the windows continuously.
Worse than War.—"The throat has

Imprudence in eating and intemperance
