Public Lands.
In a communication which appealed in the last ituue of The Columbian, from oiu Oknimgaii correspondent, reference was made to tho
disposal of"public lands. In this
issue a letter appears on the name
Bubje-ct. These two conespondents
agree with each other us to ttio importance of grunting to stock-men
sufficient land to moot the require-
' ments of the industry, und iu this
''respeot they nre undoubtedly right.
It is iifliiiissui-y, however, that u clear
distinction should be mudo between
stock ranges and a^riculturdl lunds.
It is commonly believed that much
of the lands occupied by stockmen
are totally unfit foi* cultivation. Such
lands, of course,- may go undor the
control of stock raisers without at all
interfering with the settlement or
development of the country. But
we have reason to believe that some
of the large cattle ranges do not
belong to the class mentioned by out*
correspondents. There uio stock-
raisers in the interior who hold
tracts '•intaimtig us much as eight
thousand acres more than half of
which is excellent agricultural land.
These lands ate used almost wholly
for grazing purposes, whereas if they
were put tinder cultivation tho Resources and wealth of the country
would be vastly increased. Farms
would be taken up, and the popula
tion would soon bu fifty times larger
than it now is. We are informed
that a large number of persons have
gone into the interior this season for
tho purpose of taking up and improving lands. The immigration.
next year will undoubtedly be larger
still; and there is overy reason to
believe it will inca*ase material I r oh
tho completion of tlie C. P. 11. Cut
the agricultural lands of British
Columbia tire limited, and if caie is
not taken in disposing of them the
good lands may all fall into the
hands of large proprialois befoio tho
country is half settled. Wo nro fully
impressed with the great impprUnce
of assisting by overy reasonable
means the very important industry
of slock-'anting. It is one uf the
most important industries of tho interim'. It gives employment to a
largo number of jmonla, and adds
touch lo tho wealth of the province.
It is important that this industry
should ho fin tiler developed, for tlm
demand for beef will ce-.ainly in-
crease with the population. Al the
same timo the.o is no other itfilusi*y
of such importance as that of agii-
ciiltute. Ten thousand acres of land
might support 2,500 head of cultl.*.;
btit if it guvo homes to 100 fanners
with their fitmiliei, the gain :o (he
count**,? would be immeasurably
greater. While admitting freely thnt
those trucis of land which cunnot bo
made use of for agricultural purpose:;
should be given np to slock, we think
the government ought to mo (hat
the agi .cultural lands are not mono
polized. Tbeto are many instances
where lands supposed to be worthless have been ptoved valuable by it
cerltiin couiseof ttealment. Alkali
lands are in some places produciig
excellent orops after having boen
flooded sufficiently to leech out the
excess of alkali. Theie ure lands
also in tlio Btock regions of this
province whieh have been proved of
value after lying waste for years
tinder the impression that they wee
unfit for agricultural purposes. We
are not sure that it would not be
better if stock-raising aud fanning
were combined far more generally
than is now the case. Cattle ean
find food almost anywhere in summer. The problem is to keep thein
during the winter. If farmers would
devote part of their lands to fodder
and part to pasture, provision would
be made against sever* winters, and
the stook would be both heavier and
better. As soon as the railway has
been completed it will be unueucs-
sary to bring to the front every fall
t sufficient number of cattle lo supply the city markets during the following six or eight mouths, Cattle
will then be shipped by railway
from the ranches as they are requited, But if shipped in winter thoy
must bs fed, or they will be worth
little to tbe markets,    .

VOLUME 20
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. C., SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1884.
NUMBER 3
To Europe via 'Hudson Bay.
The agitation respecting- Iho construction of the Hudson Bay itailnrad
continues to occupy tho attention of
llio people of the North-Wt-at, who
seem to feel oonfident that, if the mad
were built, gront part of the trade of
lhe North-West would pass over it,
and that tho people uf tho wholo country would bej»rontly benefitted! Tho
Winnipeg Times aryucs that the road
would be of littlo use were it built.
On tho authority of Sir Gourgu Nitres,
who it says is tho most eminent of
modem Arctic voyagers, it aSBi-rls tliat
the only ships that can navigate tha
Hudson Bay route are "those built
"whaler fashion or colliers, protected
"with iron, of small tonnage." Theso
vessels would necessarily he of small
carrying capacity, and could not, it
says, be profitably -jniployeif-inany
other trade whilo tho Bay is clotted.
Tiie Free Press argues that it would
not be necessary to employ such vessels, as there are no icebergs in the
Bay, nnd that thero is no reason to believe that "the ordinary ocean steel
"steamer could not safely navigate
"Hudson Bay and Strait nt. almost
"any period of the year, with pei'luijfc
"n little extra strength of plates iim to
"the water lino to withstand the pack
"ice, the «nly ice thoy would oiiciHiti.
"lev after leaving tho Atlantic." Even
during tliu winter it thinks trade could
ho curried on in thu Buy, us only a
fringe of ica furiui around I hat tin-
nteii.se sen in tho coldest sejumn, ntid
the Strait is almoiti'eenuuh in he open,
au the shores aro all exposed, and the
tide is so high tha' no ice can form
across it, and even floating ino is not
likely to be mot with in wiii'ur. It
thinks that if a way could be fuiuid'of
loading vessels from the shoro thero
need be no interruption to mm Hie all
tho year round. This seems i very
sanguine view of the case, hut it is,
wo are told, tha "pinion of Professor
Bell and of men who liiive lived for
years on the shorn of the Bay. A correspondent of tiie s.uno papor quotes
tho following:
"The United Stu'es Government retains show that from 18iU to 1871 forty-
nine voyages direct to Hudson Bay were
made liy American whalers, and four
vessels wore lost. None of tliosb four
were lost in the Strait; nil wen-lost in
the northern part of the Bay. When it
is remembered that by all stiil-rs the
scene-of danger in tite whole passage
from England to York is placed ia tlio
Strait, it is rather peculiar that ao vessels have been I--.it tllui a, mid would lead
one to eoneludo thut the ice him --May
sailing vessels, hut ix not actually so
dangerous as to destroy them That
somo 7">0 vessels recorded as passing
through the Strait into Hudson Bay
should get there without any serious
damage is a point that ia well ivoi th cou
sideriiig."
A deputation composed of Dr. Or-
ton, M. P., David tilnas, Q. O., und
Hun. A. ti, 11. BaunatyiiB waited on
the Winnipeg City Ou.diril asking tlieir
nssintanoe in esphiring • mute 'orihe
Sau Francisco, Winnipeg mid Hudson
Bay Railway, which, stprthi) from
Ogden, Utah, would enter Manitoba
near Turllo Momitatu, and ii>ss on
the west Mite of Lako Winnipeg to
Hudson Bay. Thin would sImi'miii the
distance li'oin San Francisco in Bufopo
by about a thousand miles, mul would,
it was contended, not hurt tlu- 0. P.R.,
but serve as a feeder tn it. flinch was
said of the value nf tho land south of
James' Bay, und of tho value of the
fisheries of Utids-iu Hay. The rouie
could he surveyed in fifty days, it was
said, and immediate action was -urged,
as the information is wanted for use at
the approaching session of Parliament.
The Council appointed a cnftiniitlee to
confer with tho Locnl Government. It
would bo dillicult to over-estimate tho
valne of the Hudson Bay route if it,
thu Bay and Strait, remain ctpttii long
enough to allow the greater part of the
year's crop to be taken out in the year
in which it is harvested, and if steamers not materially different from th»o
employed in ordinary tralHo cm bo
used. It ntfiy roipiiro two'or three
years to ascertain boyond doillit the
length of time during which navigation
usually remains u|tun, and it miiy require two or threo yours after that to
get the road built ami lliu whole see
vico properly orgauiised It would bo
folly to expect that ihol'-mte will be
open next year or thu yoii-afier, and
greater folly yot Lo inflect nil else
while hoping and wiii-mg for ihat.--

often. 1 hear that In1 is untiling but a
poor dry goods clerk," is what tliu
head of tho family stiid to Ins daughter
one day at the din nor table.
"Hu is a very nice young'ifentlo-
man," replied tho daughters "Iti-sides,
he in something tniiVti than a 'poor dry
goods olehlt.' Ho gets a largo -..tlnry,

"I hope hu may,' responded thu
old man, "but he strikes me as a very
flippant, ini|>ertitit)nt< young i • imuu,
and in tuy opinion ho should be Bnt
down upon."
"Well, I havo invited hiin to take
tea with us this evening," sn I the
daughter, "aud Diopc you will treat
him politely at leant. Vou will find
a very different paMon from wh t you
suppose him to he."
"Oh, I'll'treat bim politely em ugh,"
he said.
That evening Mr. Mtllikin tipi eared
at supper, and made a, moat fav- ruble
iinpresskn upon the old genii-man.
"Ho is a clever young fellow, after
all," he thought. "I have dom him
an injustice."
It was just hero that Bobby -moke
out, Bobby was r well-meaninij little
boy, but too talkaJve.
"Papa," he venlured, "yoii know
what you said tt -day about;Mi Mil
likin; that lio was an impertinent
young man and ought to ho sat down
upon "
"Siluuco, slrl" shouted tho father,
swallowing iHiionHitul of hot j dato,
nut the little fellow ivouldll't ui ttice.
"It's «U right," he continued, ouuli-
dentially, but in a whisper loud'enough
to be heard out ut doors, "he tin- been

Wanted- a Report.
Some months ago tho locul party
organ published a manifesto in
which certain grave charges were
made against members of the present government. Its venom wis
aimed particularly at tlie senior
member for this district, the hon.
provincial secretary, whom it accused of disloyalty, and having
appended liis name to an annexation
paper sent to Washington. The
organ intimated that while it did
net doubt thn truth of the published
statement, it hud instructed its
"correspondent" ut Washington to
investigate tho matter thoro uglily
and report. Wo are somewhat
curious to know tlie result of the
"correspondent's" in vostigation.
Ample time has been given for the
enquiry and report, and it is surely
due to the provincial secretary's
constituents tlmt (lie truth should
bo innde. known. If tbe organ is
prepared to back up its,assertions
by proof, the constituency may well
consider whether it would not bo
prudent to ask the hon.'member to
resign liis seat. If it lias discovered
that the statement is absolutely
without foundation, a very ample
apology in due both to the member
and the constituency. Let us hear
from the organ.
ment, will be naturally disposed to
uiuke concessions to those who uro
continually engaged in throwing dirt
and indulging in tiio exhibition of
personal of political spite, The opposition organ in this city, and the few
persons- at Port Moody who draw inspiration from it, nte the worst enemies Port Moody lias. They are
doing it a great deal of harm both
in the eyes of tbe public mid the
government. "If ''honest John"
does happen to own property at
Coal Harbor, "dishonest John" owns
property at Port Moody; and the
charge of selfishness would lie against
the editor with quite as much force
as against tho provincial secretary.
Tho people of this country nre not
slow to perceive the motives which
prompt men to action, and they are
generally disposed to give fair play.
If the friends of Port Moody wero
wise and discreet they would not
fly* in the face of public opinion by
making unreasonable demands or indulging in foolish abuse.
Klv.il Roads.
Some   people   pretenj}   to think
that   it   would be very  unfair to
build a new road to Grahvilli), via
False Creek trail, unless an equally
good rond is built to Port Moody,
It is even hinted thut tho proposed
Granville road is a scheme of the
provincial'secretary to increase the
value of hia  property at Coal Harbor.     Of course   sueh   statements
are put forward only by persons who
are themselves deeply interested in
Port Moody, or  who hope to make
political capital out of the jealousy
they ettpecfc  to  cieatt*.    As a matter of fact the present road to Port
Moody is very little worse, if woise
at all, tban   the   Grunvillo   road.
Both am fearfully bad, and neither
can be mado good   without a very
large expenditure.    Now, the question to be considered is whether the
present road to Granville should he
remade or   a new ono constructed
over  the Falsa   Oieek  trail.   We
have taken  some trouble to obtain
tlie opinions of a number of persons
who know  the meals of   the respective  routes,   and these  opinions
are almost unanimqnsly in favor of
the new    toad.      Thero   is,    perhaps, no person more competent to
givo  nn   intelligent and impartial
opinion   on   this subject than Mr.
Lewis.   For a number of yeiiva he
has   heen running  a Bulge line to
Granville,   and   it   is quite immaterial to him hy what lonte he may
reach that place.      He is not prejudiced   by   local   interests.      Mr.
Lewis h vcy em. halic, and hns no
hesitation whatever in saying that
the   False Creek route  is   enti.ely
superior,    lt would  he   furthoi   to
Hastings via this route,  but stage
men  say  limy  could go over   the
longer distance in less time because
of the absence of hills.    It is practically impossible to overcome the
heary grades of  thu present route,
whereas   there   are practically no
grades at  all   on  the False (Jieek
route.   Then it is well known that
the road bed on tho latter route is
infinitely superior to the other, and,
" consequently, the cpst of   renewals
and repairs would be much less for
all time to come.    ItelweKii the Poi t
Moody und Granville roads there can
be  no fair comparison in point of
importance.    There are large vested
interests at Grunvilleaml Moodyville
and Hastings.   These interests nre
permanent.    They  have   not been
created by the railway, nor do they
depend on tbe railway for development.      Port Moody hus become a
placo of sufficient importance to j'
tify the expenditure of a reasonable
amount of public money for the con
Btruotiot)  of a  road connecting it
with this city; but it would be very
unfair tq, take a large-sum for such
a purpose while other plnr.es of greater importance, und with much better
claims, are left without roads.    We
have before suggested thnt the property holders at Port Moody should
be prepared to meet the government
half way, and tlmt the government
shstild, as soon af* possible, make arrangements with these gentlemen for
the construction of   a decent road.
The course pursuf.) by certain political partisans with respect to these
roads seems to us the surest course
to defeat the Fort Moody road.   No
government, or insmber of a govern-1

We regret exceedingly that the ofiiee
of stipendiary nisgisi rate, which was
so much needed in this growing town,
has been abolished. Dead, indeed,
would we, the nuoplouf Port Moody,

The Coinmissiont-rs appointed to enquire into the conduct and management of thu Provincial Asylum for the
Insane, report as follows :—
That on entering the building the
place impressed them'ns resembling a
prison rather than a hospital for the
insane, and ns n far less preferable
plnce of abode than tho PeuUcntiary
at New Westminster. The place is
gloomy in thu extreme; the corridors
narrow and sombre in appearance; the
windows high above tlie ground and
unnecessarily barred; tho ventilation
defective; thn water supply deficient;
the apparatus! for extinguishing tiro of
the worst kind; and, worst of all, the
establish ment exceedingly "overcrowd
ed, the patients being herded together
more like cattle than human beings.
Thu external arrangements are -sven
more defective than ihe internal, con-;
Stating of ground enclosed to tho extent of throe or four acres. This-, space
is divided i-tl* into yards fur male mid
female pati-riits, ii small kitchen garden, und n -.oinuid f-.f drying cln'lma.
''he system of condu ting tin: Inslitu-
tiori wo consider unsatisfactory; There
U ii, medieiri oflicer wliu visits about
every second day, ti .superintendent,'
six or seven keepers, a matron, and a
nig] it-watchman. Evon among this
small stall', your commissioners noticed
that lack of etprit de -turps, -iit working
iu unison and for rho general good,
without which tho cave of insane can
never be undertaken with nuy degree
of success.
There should be a resident, physician-
in-chief, who should be superintendent und executive ollicer of the-estab-
lishment. Ho should seiVo during
good behaviour, mid Iub compensation
should be so liberal as to enable him
to devote his wholo timo and energies
to the welfare of the institution. He
should inmiinato tu the Government
suitable persons to act us his subordinates, and havo entire control over tho
medical, moral, and dietetic treatment
of tho patients, the unrestricted power
of appointment and discharge of ult
persons engaged in their care, nnd
should exercise a general supervision
over every department of the institution. It ia only by the appointment uf
such an oHicer that the wrauglingB and
dilticultics in the household will be
avoided, and regularity, good order,
ecmiumy, und an chicient discipline
secured.
The building Bhould be enlarged nnd
tho whole of the grounds belonging lo
tho Asylum surrounded by a subtaiiiinl
fence. Of this land, n large proportion
should bu converted into n kitchen
garden und kept in a high sla.e of cultivation, lt will not only bo of v,teat
importance in furnishing un abundant
supply of frush vegelnbles for llm use
of the institution, bnt it will be found
the very best dependence for outdoor
labor fur the patients, The utility part
of the grounds should bo laid out with
sliude trees, Bhrubs, ifca, and everything dono to give the place an nt
tractive appearance. A gymnasium,
wiih the right kind nf apparatus, suitable in its fitting up for insane men,
and a calisiihenium for tho women,
would be tound useful. Tho various
games of ball, tho ubo uf n cur un a cir
culur railroad, tenpins, -ftc, ara among
the kinds of er.ercise.tlint would be ett-
It Ins lipi'ii agent j joyed bv itiaiiy patients, Dry walks
of Biiiifliu'ly | ainund the grounds nre extremely use-
huitatioas of | f„|_ llllu B\m\{\ certainly bu provided.
In regard i.o the interior of ihe building, your commissioners noticed many
dui'uiu. Divides being infinitely (oo
smull for tin- numbor of patients, the
moms or culls are hailly ventilated and
destitute of furniture. None of l bum
contain more than a bed tirmly fiiicd
to the floor, Your commissioners
would suggest that tho furniture be
varied according to tho class of patient
by whom it is to bo used. It should,
at all events, equul in neatness and
comfort that of a plain lodging-house.
Pictures should he placed on tho walls
of evory ward, on account of the favoi*-
nble elVect tboy hnvo on the patients,
Honks, periodicals, nnd newspapers
Bhould also be provided.
The (wiiulows in the building cun be
greatly unproved by doing extended to
tho floor. This would render the rooms
fur mure cheerful and hnhitublc, especially in the rainy Bcason when the
patients arc huddled together bci ween
four whitewashed walls, unable to catch
a glimpse of the outer world.
Your coiumu-sionurs would cnll nt-
tontiun to tlielony hours of thu keepers or attendants. Tho work of those
men, when faithfully performed, is
often harassing, nnd among excited
patients peculiarly so. For tliis reason
pains should be taken to give them ns
much relaxation as possiblo.

All cnsllus aro not built oTily to be
pulled down ngiiin, u,i!e u the phrase
ciistle-biiihling necuseiirily moans only
the forming ot I hose projects Which
shall have no reality, and may not be
applied to the visions which seeiimijly'l
remote, but not impossible. Perhaps
children, in their thoughtful moments,
build more castlus than any of thosn
whom, lime has taught to be lees
imaginative. The boys look forward
to tbo day when tbey shall have a
watch, a pony or a boat, and fancy
themselves ns important among their
fellows then as the happy possessors of
theso treasuies now appear to them.
Littlo girls, ns u rule, liavo a morbid
craving to arrive nt nn ago when some
prince of their imagination shall come
and wed them. Many nu invitation

beforehand, to "come to my wedding."
Again, some little mother in embryo
sees herself in the mental mirror taking
her young family out in her carriage,
as her muther now takes her, or bidding them goud-night when they are
tottering off to bed, and she has been
exalted tu the dignity of going out to
dinner. How happy the little mail
aud woman feel in these blissful moments! Unfettered by care, ignorant
of. the storms which shall shake nud
overturn tlieir pretty structures, they
build on nnd on, piling story uu story,
flooring and muling nnd furnishing
tliei-c castles, in which the bright eye
of childhood beholds such strength,
but which the more experienced-gaze
nf age sees to be weaker even than
cards. HlesB thom! Though we know
hotter, we cannot choose but let the
little owners take our hands nnd lend
us through those halls so spacious,
those rooms hung round with the pictures in richly gilded frames, those
gardens full of Nature's BWoetcst oH'cr-
ings. And yuu, little fniry, with your
dark hair und lustrous blue eyes, your
ringing laugh and loving smile, how
will your castle stand? Will you be
the hnppy mother you fancy yourself,
with nil the comforts which you think
riches can bring I Or will you bo the
child uf adversity, compelled to go out
early and come homo lute, slaving your
young lifo away to earn that scanty
pittance which even tho smile of contentment can scarcely make snlHciunt
to support your ailing mother ( Ur will
the kindly Reaper gather you amongst
his sheaves, transporting you from the
toils and sorrows of a sinful world to
that heavenly choir whose untham is
swelled hy the sweet voices uf littlo
children? Who knows! God bless you,
my dears! It is your innocent gayety
thut brightens the dismal lob of many
a struggling traveler over thu stormy
highway of lifu.
Aud, schoolboy, what plan have
you drawn out? Are you going to
will the prize every luini/ Are you
going to be lifted up over the heads
of buys ulder Ihun yoursell? Wil! ymi
nfter .two or three years inoi<e;be the

deliver the Greek oration, rise tii be
thu greatest man at lhe bar, roll up
your millions iu trade, shine in art
or poetry, or become an [itik no wl edged
national leader in the. political tleld?
My dear boy, I hopo you will do nil
this, and more; but remember that
every ono cannot be head; .hat there
are very few win can reach the highest success. I'uild the castles by nil
means, Such labor is not only natural but inspiriting; nud if yeu strengthen overy joint with hard and huiest
work, it will not bo your fnult if the
walls du nut hold together.
And you, men of businesu, who
havu not seen a brilliant career at thu
university, what castles nre you building? Is it one which is rising slowly,
but every stone of whieh is laid carefully, every aperture thoroughly
stopped, every joist lirmly secured)
Oris it one which, to look magnificent,
rises quickly, and upparutiily just as
firmly as the oilier, but to tho careful
eye shows signs of careless n-ut had

fortune which is not honestly ncquivud

Editor CotosimfN.—In the Colom*
IHAN uf Dee. 12 there is nu article headed
"Lund Hegulationu." Aftor speaking of
the Dominion land act of 1 aS'.l, the niim-.
ber of acres applied for by notice in a
lute number of the Gazelle is stated. It
is recommended that "the Provincial
land lawn Bhould limit the quantity of
laud-which one person r.uiy acquire,"
This would do woll enough if the land
applied for as grazing land were exempted from such restrictions, lt is evident
that to feed a number of cuttle the stock-
raiser must have pasture laud for the
purpose. It is known that grazing land
is only lit for that—for grazing purposes,
It is conceded thut from live to teil acres
of bunch-grass laud is required to maintain one head of cnttle. It ia obvious
that to curtail the purchasing privilege
of a man engaged in stock-raising would
he unjust. A range to carry the greatest number of cattle must be protected.
Hill bmtU arc unfit for funning aud
would consequently remain public property, and being continually overrun
tbey become devoid of grass and almost
worthless. I have brought this matter
before you, for if stock-ranges are classed
as farming lauds the cll'eet would he to
turn the grazing lands into commonage,
aud this would lessen the number of cattle raised on a givon quantity of lanii,
and make stock-raising very uncertain,
compelling thusu engaged in it to reduce
their herds or give up the business.

Editor Columbian.-—-I observe yonr
correspondent^ Mr. John Oliver, takes
exception to somo remarks I havo made
respecting this most unnecessary and
useless agitation on the through road
question. I would assure Mr. O. I think
he is porfectly Iioacat in his convictions
and statements regarding his road or
trail or what it may be, still at the same
time, the course he is pursuing will,
rather than advance the object he has in
view, havo a tendency to hinder and op-
posu it. I for my own part feel sure that
no amount of fuss and noise will ha^'e
any weight with the government] they
will not expend a large amount of money
ou n public road without being thoroughly assured that what they do will be of
udvnutttjre not only to a few but to the
community at large, and I tun inclined to
think Sir. O. may not let suuh a bugaboo
lis determined attempt of the Clover
Valley settlers, ke., trouble liis mind
longer. I for my own part, should tho
governinerit put either or any road
through, (which I doubt) shall accept
what hi doiio as tho best to be done, not
heoiiiiBQ I have given tlibin warning, hut
because they conclude it will do the
greatest good to the greatest number.
I must siy Sir, O. ts very ready at issuing challenges, I will state for his information -mil. possibly, grntlflctttibu
that 1 do di.-pntu Hie propositions he has
made notwithstanding any assertions to,
tlio contrary, but I do not propose to
prove nnything or assert anything in a
newspaper communication, hut will be
happy to meet Mr. O. and personally
discuss this question at n time and place
suitable, aad since I am not at all unnamed of my name, and detest such a subterfuge as "Fair Play," I beg to suhcrihe

NEW8 FROM ALL PARTS Of THE WORLD.
Ottawa, Jan. 8.—Marcus Smith is
here. Ilo says the wholo works between Port Moody and Sayoua undertaken by the government will bo completed within contract time, July ,188.1.
Caiko, Jun. 8,—The letter sent to
tlio Khedive by the Egyptian Minister
who resigned, suys tliu Quetu's government bus demanded tho abandonment
of Buudun. We havo not thu right to
take any steps since Soudan i3 in tlio
possession of the Porto and was intrusted to our charge by tho Queriii's
joverument. This declaration violates
tho organic rescript of Aug 23, 1878.
Wo resign because wo are prevented
governing in accordance with the constitution.
Toronto, Jan. 8,—The Marquis of
Lansdowne nnd Lady Lansdowne and
party arrived here to-night from Ottawa and nre the guests of Lieut-Governor Robinson. This is tho first time
Lansdowne has been away from Ottawa since hia nrrival from England*
Tho Bpecial train by which they travelled M*ns well guarded by a posse pf
government police. Unusual precautions seem to be taken. He was met
here at the depot by a hundred volunteers who will escort hiin wherever be
goes during his stay. It was originally
intended that the Marquis should visit
Niagara Fulls; but owing to the recent
excitement caused hy thu Fenian dynamiters, the programme is changed and
tho party will return to Ottawa on
Saturday.
Paris, Jan. 0.—The French press
bitterly attack England for abandoning Soudan to El Mahdi.
Cairo, Jan. 9.—E1 Malidi'e brothor-
in-law was captured at Esnih and
brought to Cairo. He af linns that
Mahdi will not fight the Turkish
troops, but will do his utmost to
mako common cause with thein to
expel foreigueis from Egypt,
Oaibo, Jan. 9.—Recruiting of black
troops under Sibir Pasha is abandoned.
Tho governinont is undecided whether
to rocall Baker Pasha, who has gone
to Sunken) td arrange for a campaign
against El Mahdi. The military un
der Sir Evelyn Wood will mnke tho
necessary arrangements for thu evacuation of the Soudan hy 'Egyptian
troops, to accomplish which will, it is
thought, require a year.
Nnw Youk, Jun, 9.—During the
storm Coney island suffered terribly.
The residents were up all night dreading that a lidal wave might submerge
the place. The water Hooded the
meadows. Loss estimated from between 350,000 and 8100,000. The
track of the Marine railway between
Manhattan nnd Brighton Beach is
almost entirely destroyed. The culvert nf the piers wns wrecked at the
outer and upwnrd of 100 feet wus enrried away. The hotel und surrounding property ure damaged to such an
extent ns to suggest the plausible idea
of entire demolition should there be
such another visitation. The jjrnmen-
ude succumbed during the night and
the music stand and drug Btoro sank
into the sea. .
Paris, Jan. 9.—Gen. Deckel holds
Sontay with 1,000 French troops.
The country for -10 miles around is
clear of the enemy.
Honokono, Jan. 0.- Abovo Sontay
is ubaiiduiied by black Hags. A large
number of Aiiiinmiiesr,nro flocking to
(he French heudi-unrters nt Hanoi.
The desertion of Amiamitos and black
Hugs caused the loss of Son lay. The
arms found nt Sontay are marked
"Foo Ohoo*, China Arsenal."
Hongkong, Jan. 9---An explosion
occurred at L.uisie oa the 28r.li ult.,
destroying two batteries of French
artillery. One man was killed and
three injured. Several houses and
barracks of the battery wore badly
damaged. Two thousand Amiamitos
attacked the French posts hold hy 500
marines, but after several hours hard
fighting tho Annamites retired with
the loss of 100 killed nnd wounded.
A column of French troops, under
command of Col. Mnssiu, left Hanoi
and pursued the pirates to Bed river,
and may possibly advance to Hatigpoa
above Sontay. Col. Bionvul bus overtaken some bauds of pirates in tbe
province of Nandinh, who retired before the French troops.
Cairo, Jan. 10.—The formation of
the cabinet has been completed. Nu-
bar Pasha, president of the council,
takes the ministry of foreign attiurs,
and justice, under secretary and minister of tho interior Nubar Pasha
says he behoves that Egypt will prosper only by union with England. Ho
stated that no timo would be lost in
carrying into effect the policy imposed
on tlie government by England.
Judgo Fullurtoii aro to take part in
the defence. Lowell being absant
from London Mr. Hoppin replies,
stating that he has come'to.the con*
elnsion that the certilieatt-of naturalization produced by O'Dmiucll was
either grouted to some other perBon
bearing ihe not unusual name of Put'
rick O'Donnell, or that it wiib fraudulently obtained by the prisoner. On
October -3 Mr. Hoppin informs Secretary Freliugliiiysuii that further enquiries concerning O'Domiell's alleged
citizenship havo impressed him with
apparent truth of .O'Dimuult's statements. The question of O'DnuncH's
citizenship is summed up in a communication from the Secretary of State
to the President, which concludes as
follows i—O'Douuell has a certificate
of naturalization. He may have obtained it by mistake of tho court or
by hia own mistake; or there may be
a mistake in the statements he now
makes, and yet thore bo an absence of
fraud; and as the certificate is prima
facta evidence of citizenship, and as
I do not s«e the evidence that O'Donnell practised a fraud upon tho court,
tho United States Legation at London
was instructed to Gousjder O'DoiiiieU's
-citizenship established. Then follows
the cable correspondence botween
Secretary Frelinghuyaen and Minister
Lowell, aud Lord Granville's reply to,
Mr. Lowell's request for delay iu the
execution of tho sentence ou O'Donnell, all of which have boen heretofore reported.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
Hose breathed nn hopo, at any rate,
Imt went on from day to day rejoicing
in her work of love, and trusting only
in the present.
Philip, to do him justice, took littlo
notice of me, sometimes calling tno
"Louio," and scarcely remarking my
brief absences from the sick room, or
hailing my return with more than a
smile, ao that I felt quito at liberty to
go home at tho time specilied, and
answered Rose's objections hy a clear
atntoment of thu case.
On the last muming of my stay I
had beon nut to purchase Philip some
grapes, and it being a clear, bright
sunshiny day, had lingered somewhat
to enjoy the air.
On my return I was passing along
the narrow inn passage to gain tho
winding staircase that led to our apart-
mentn, when going by nn open door, a
sudden curious impulsu induced me
to look in.   ,
A young lady in a dark blue traveling dress was sitting litem, with her
back towards mo. and her hat uml
gloves on tho table beside her.
In tho deep shadow I could not discern even Iho slight profile,
I was passing on whan Icaugl)t
night pf a dimpled brown hand moving listlessly among Iho feathers of
the hat, and wiih a breathless stmt I
advanced a step into thu room and
aaid "Milly."
In a moment the dark littlo fnce
was reflecting buck my us'toniahiucijit,
and with a great sob of joy Milly
darted into my arms.
1 pressed tho dour little creature to
mo without speaking, and indeed for
H time both ahe and I wero silent.
It was such an unexpected meeting,
and my heart wus so full for her, and
§' reat surprises sometimes maka one
limb,
Milly was tho first to recover herself.
"you here, dear? Ah, Nell, Nell,
if you knew how often I have wanted
you!"
"Nay, that is too good, Milly," I
answered, trying to laugh; "if you
wanted me so badly surely you knew
where to find me? How comes it, little ono, that after declining my pressing invitutimi, I Iind you within an
hour's journey of Sr.nnyr.ide!"
"Of Sunnyside' ymi don't mean
that I am us near as that!"
"Ay, but I do—only nn hour's
journey, and yet, but for this chanco
meeting in this out-of-the-way inn, I
3hould never have known tlmt your
atups hnd beon directed southward.
Como, I am »oii)g to havo it sll explained; but lirst lot mo seo how you
look. Como nearer to the window,
please, for this dark parlor envelops
nil your features in shudow,'1
She followed mo with something of
her old merry laugh, but not even
that, or her smiles could hide from mo
the piillid hollow look upon her face,
which in its lack of brightness liad
lost something of its old beauty. Indeed, but for the great innocent eyes,
I think I should scarcely have remembered how vory pretty I thought her
when I saw hor lirst.
"Well!" sho said inquiringly, when
I relinquished iny hold nf her with a
sigh, "what are you thinking about I"
"Thinking about!" I answered, with
a littlo shako in my voico, "nay, I do
not know. What doos it matter?
Come and sit down beside me iu this
comfortable window-seat, and let mo
hear everything tliat has happened to
you since we parted, and especially
how*it is that my brave-hearted girl
looks nothing* better to mo than a sud-
oyed SpritoJ"
The poor little faco tlushed up under
my earnest gaze; and sho played with
my hands in hor old way for some
minutes without speaking.
"Hns Time dealt gently with you,
Milly."
"A strange question," she answered,
with a tremble of her lips, "when
Time is in his infancy and life is yot
to be traversed. I never could under-
stand," she continued, "Unit old saying ot Jacob's that 'few and evil were
his days;' mine, I foar, will bo very
many and very long."
"So all feel who aro under the
cloud, but mice lot (ho sunshine
atreiim through it again, and you will
bo the first to regret the fleetnesa of
the passing hours, ilut now, my child,
tell me how it fared with you aftor I
left."
"I don't know," sho answered
wearily. ""I wrote to you that Arthur
had taken 1110 to Ahcrstwith, aud
that wo were thore throe weeks, and
I told yon too how kind nud ceuile
he wns to me, nnd how wicked I folt
nt not being happier for his caro."
"You could not forget yolir trouble,
then, Willy?'*
"IJow could I?" she answered quickly; "oh, if nny one you love, Nellie,
have hitier Borrow at heart, and yuu
think to change iheir life and sctriu
for thom u little, never tako them to
tho son, Dover take thom near it."
"My daer, why not!''
"Hecnuse it ia not gnnd, because
lhey will return homo ton times more
nick and sore than when yuu look them
lirst; I assure \ iu I have proved It.
When wo first got down 1 liked llio
sen, and I thought, as I hoard Its great
monotonous moaning breaking on iny
uar at night, thai I could never he
weary of seeing and listening to it; 1
thought it seemed to agree and sympathize with me in its pitiful earnest
tunes, but I confess to ynu 1 soon
found my mistake. Oh, Nollie, it
chafed me terribly. In a littlo whilo
I was satiated with melancholy; I was
fatigued with the endless repetition of
tho same sad song; thero was nu hone
in its voice, neither earthly nor heavenly, only a vaguo unrest, (ill I realized, its I had never done in my life
before, 'lhe time, when there shall bo
no more sea.'"
"Poor little ono, go on."
"So I begged Arthur at last to tnko
me home, for that I wns only growing
ill instead of bettor; and when he
saw 1 was iu earnest ho consented at
once, nnd wo rotumod to Rose Cottage."
"Whoro you were left alone nearly
all day; nh, Milly, that must have
been the worst thing possible for you.
Did you not find your trouble harder
tu endure when you got buck*"'
"No," shoanswored firmly, "I think
not. I was nt iny post, mid one sutlers
less in doing ono'g duty than in being
potted and pitied like a child; I nover
could bear .that, Of course I had
hard work at first, nnd I learnt how
necessary it ifl to take up the cross
daily; the effort must be freshly made
every morning, or one has no strength
for the cares of tho day: .hut I have
been led gradually to one coiiviutiun,
Nellie."
"What is that, dear?"
"That I muat havo moro work—
Vork tn hrace my energies nnd mnke
ta» atruiig;  wurk tu fill up my days,
thut no time bo left for idle repiuingB;
and this sort of work it is impossible
to get at Rose Cottage."
"You aro right; but what is it you
plan, Milly?"
"What is it rather that I have
planned ? for it is all arranged.
Arthur is pleased and so am I; ho was
dubious at first, till I told him all thnt
was in my heart, aud then he saw it
would be right. Can yuu guess my
scheme, Nellie!"
"Nny, that I cannot, nor will I
waste our preoious time in idlo conjectures; what ia it!"
"I- am not to bo left alone at Rose
Cottage any more, but I am going
every morning to teach CesBio nnd
Laura Willoiigliby,' to be actually a
daily governess in the very snmo
house whero Arthur is tutor, nnd to
tench in tho old school-roam of our
own dear old home."
"You don't mean it, Milly? Rut
what is to beooiue of Arthur's little
housekeeper:"
"Oh, I um going to combine both
duties aa much us I can, and Uridgot
can manage the rest. 1 shall have tho
early nnu-iiing, ynu know, and tho
long winter evenings to sow in; but
what pleases Arthur liinst is that ho
will havo mo to walk with him every
morning to tlio Orange, and must probably my company back."
"Well, Milly, all I can say is, tlmt
it is uu admirable plan, if uiily you
havo fltiength and courage to carry
it out. What ages uro tho little
girls!"
"Only ten and cloven; hu.- they are
sueh bright, teachable children; they
are wild willi joy at tlio thought of my
coming to thorn, and Mrs. uml Colonel
Willotihghhy urn so kind! I am to
haro fifty pounds ''tit-first, till mycapabilities' havo boon tested, so 1 shall
not only be helping myself hut Arthur
in thu bargain. Just faney helping
my dear old brother." And the little
sister's eyes glistened witli tears as
she apoke.
"All tins is very satisfactory; but
tell mo now, how it happens thut you
haro wandered so far south; are you
staying hero?"
"No, I am staying at Rrooklands,
about eight mites from hero, with
tho Tracys, who are cousins to the
Willoiighbys, you know. They woro
up at the Grange a long time, anil Mrs.
Tracy, tltinkiiig I looked pale, begged
Arthur to spare me to thein for u fow
weeks, as I wns not to commence my
new duties till after Christmas, To*
tell you the truth, I wus dreadfully
loth to come, but Emma aud Mrs.
Tracy and Arthur, oyer-psrusad'ed mu;
in fact, I was pretty nearly i-arrUd oil'
by force. You can't think, Nellie,
how kind lhey all are to mo; and I
feel it is very ungrateful in me not to
enjoy myself more.!'
-■iiut how is it you are sitting alone
in an inn parlor, Milly?"
"Oh, wo came to tho Point for u
sea breeze, and Emma remembered
she had au afternoon's business in the
village; sn wo put up the carriage and
lunched here, and as I was very tired
Mra. Tracy proposed iny resting hero
till they returned, But I novor
thought, aa I waited so listlessly by
iho window, that my wood angel would
presently look in upon mo."
"When do you think they will bu
back!"
"In another half-hour. Oh, how
dark it ia getting; I can no longor aee
your face."
"Then stir the fire up to a cheerful
blaze by the timo I come back; fori
havo forgotten all this time that there
are other peoplo iu tlio world beside
you mid mo*"
So after briefly sketching to her tho
slrange concurrence of clroniiistanoos
Lhat had brought me also to iho inn,
I van up-stairs, and returned iu a few
minutes found MUly kneeling on the
rug warming her chill hundi at llio
pleasant l-ln-.-.e
"Come nnd sit down, Nellie; quick!
we havo not a moment to lose, and
there is yet plenty'to tell. What a
pity you uro going away to-morrow, or
I should certainly coax Mrs. Tracy to
lot mo carry you away with me to-
night; don't you think Mra, -Hazeldean will spi ro you?"
I quite glarled at the name, for she
was still Rose Meredith to mo, but
smilingly shook my head,
"Well, well, I will not urge you,
yon always know best; and now let
us talk."
"Hnve yuu heard any news uf Mr.
Olive, Milly?"
"Yes; Herwald told mo about him
when he came to net me on our roturii
from Wales. Oh! you can't think how
land he was to me; no woman could
havo shown mure geutlenesB aud delicacy, no, not yourself, Nollie."
'And what did ho say?"
"He said that whon Hubert reached
Geneva, ho was taken with a return of
his old nervous disorder, but that he
was woll attended nnd nursed by a
Catholic sister uf charily—Sister Agatha, who had written tlie letter at his
request; but he told Horwald not to
bo uneasy, as ho was uot able to
writo liiniBolf. Hark! there uro the
fiurringo-wheels, a,id there's Emma's
voice,"
Milly was right. In another minute
btisk, cheerful Emma Tracy entered,
aiul uflcr many ndieux ami many
lingering caresses, Milly was fain to
(ear herself away and follow her
friends.
1 wont up-slaira, and found Rose
presiding at a cozy Ittilo tea-table
flpread in honor of my last evening in
tliu hick-ruom: while Philip, propped
up with pillows and looking cheerful
though weak, insisted on forming onu
of llio party'.
And a nice littlo evening it was, one
pleasant tu remember, but it closed
early, of course; aud the next illuming 1 set oil' fur Sunnyside, aftor many
a kind and grutefull gnud-byo being
Hjiokon, not only by Rose, but by
Philip Huzeldcun.
*# # * * -h #
"So tlio Snow-fairies tolled all night,
and emptied, their lapB of the sparkling cry-stiil crumbs, nnd hour by hour
tho noiseless wurk went.on till the
whole fair garment was woven. And
when King Sun awoke and prepared
to atop into his golden chariot-—behold
the Earth was clad hi daraling whito
and looked glorious as a now-made
bride, and all those spots and stains
she liad oncountored on hor weary
way were folded over and hidden from
sight.
"And the Sea came up and looked
at hor with his calm bluo eyes, and
str-itchod out his arms us though to
take her in, and the Snow fairies
melted away in the great radiance of
that hnppy day. 1 can't remember
any iriort, but. I know tho cud was
awfully pretty, and the moral—I've
f ergot ten—but yuu can find it out fur
yourselves."
"Halloa, Charliel  nro you asleep?"
A drowsy head raised itself from
Seymour's shoulder as ho spoke, and
shook itself indignantly.
"Asleep! not a hit of it. I hoard
every word yuu said, Suymour; but,
tell nio, nre there really any Snow-
fuiriesi nnd do thoy always work by
night when wo can't see thein! How
I ihould like to have a peep at them."
"Well, look out for them when you
hear tho north wind blow, for tho
next gale is suro to bring a shoal of
them along with it; but I advise you
not to get out of bed and look at
thom; for the littlo people don't like
to be interrupted by mortals', eh,
Halcot?"
Halcot, simmering in tho full bhizo
of tho nursery fire, with his round
eyes fixed admiringly on his chum,
looks forth sagaciously into the gathering darkness and opines they will be
at work to-night; for Bruce had said
the wind was in the north half an
hour ago; and, hurrah! they would
havo a merry Christinas after all,
"Of which to-morrow is tho ovo,"
acquiesced Seymour, thoughtfully,
"But is this really true, all this you
havo been telling us, or only play!"
persisted Charlie, now hirgo-oyod and
wido awake.   "Because "
, "True," repeated Seymour, with
much gravity, "true! why of courso
it is—surely, Charlie, yuu don't mean
to disbelieve in fairies at your age?"
"Don't toll 'lories," broke frum
tho little golden-haired bundle on tho
floor, that lay huddled up closely in
company with tho nursery cat; and
Rill, sitting up, presented her flushed
faco reprovingly to the circle; "dun't
tell 'tories; Lucy snys bad buys who
toll 'turios never go to heaven."
"Where do thoy go to baby?" demands Seymour, stretching out his
arms to his favorite, a proceeding pettishly ignored by the littlu maid.
"Como, baby, tell us; whoro do
they go to'!"
"Oil, I know; they yo down into
tho burning fiery furnace, nnd the
great golden imago goes and oata thom
up, every bit of thein."
At this startling proposition, compounded of last Sunday's lesson, the
nursery synod burst into roars of
laughter, while Rill, crimson and confused, first butted angrily at Hnlcot,
and then hid hor head in Hennie's
bed-clothes, from which a confused
sobbing presently arose, mingled with
stilled exclamations of "naughty buy,
tell 'tories, naughty, wicked boy!"
Mother Nell, seated in tho dark
window-seat apart, smiling to herself
at tho lads' vagaries, now comes hcrsolf to appease outraged infancy; and
Rill and Iho cat boing l'nado joint
sharers of uno warm nost, to wit, hor
lap, quiot is restored nnd the conversation proceeds, Charlie sleepily.
"If thoy work to-night', we will
make a Biiow-num in tho orchard
undor tho groat apple-tree, as big as
Dudley j and Bruce shall help tis do
it."
Hal chiming in; "And wo'll break
up tho snow in tho front court, and
dig out a regular path down Gruss-
lune, like wo did last year, or tho fellows won't bu able tu get to tho factory; and perhaps Mr. Egorton will
lot us help clear tho church-yard with
tho men; that will bo the best treat
of all, because thuy aro sure to havo
us in to drink hot spiced boor in thu
kitchen, and perhaps taste old Marjory's Christinas cako."
"Hold thero; you aro reckoning
without your host, my masters," replied Seymour tho prudent, withdrawing a well-toasted buot from tho
high-fonder as ho spoko. "Move
yuur head a moment, Charlie; you are
going to Bleep again, I vuryily believe,
for you nro precious heavy. As to
show-men and snow-digging, have yuu
forgotten our promise tu Louio to help
her with tho church decorations?—she
has given us hor assistance these three
days past, and wo must not be shabby
and cut her, now it is our turn."
"Buthor the decorations," muttered
Hah-i-t, biting his nails savagely; I
am sick to death of 'em; why, we
grubbed all tho stuif wc could got
from the Priory woods and Holly-Top
bond, and you don't mean to Bay she
wants us to pi^t thein up? I thought
the Thorntons and Waldograves wero
to settle that/"
■'Thoy will bo there, of courso; I
bolicvo Bellu and Ada havo done most
of the wreaths already, but we aro
wanted for tho nailing up, and Bruco
is going to help. Como, Hal, dun't
bo sulky; wo have done tho houso so
famously, it will nover do to neglect
the dear old church—I hate shirking
a thing; besides, aftor all, there may
bo no snow to-inorrow."
"If there is we must stick to our
word," returned Halcot ruefully, "and
take tho chance of having time for
both; but 1 must sny I am awfully
tired of this fagging at holly uud evergreens; I thought certainly wo hnd
done fur good and all to-night."
I echoed poor Halcot's sigh of weariness ai 1 remembered the trials of the
previous weok. For threo whole days
—days uf unparalleled distress and
confusion—had tho mistress been sut
at defiance, and Sunnyside delivered
into the hands of tho spoilers, A
crow of young carpenters, aided and
abetted by thoir brothers, hnd taken
possession of the whole house, and
waged wo* fiercely with thoir tools
against any who ventured to oppose or
oven to assist them. Only Louie, with
hor trailing skirts well looped up, was
Buffered to approach within speaking
distance of those dreadful ladders,
and meekly proffer gimlets and papers
of nails.
Frum garret to kitchen these boy-
tyrants ruled supremo, nothing was
safe froui them, and only one spot of
ground declared lo bo inviolate, and
that, my own pretty drawing room
with its bright carpet and curtains
and new chintz coverings,
Furthermore 1 had stipulated that
the guest-chamber should ho lot oil'
with two or threo garlands apiece,
but boyond this I was powerless to
interfere, for deafening whistles and
detached morsels of soaking shrubs
woro suro tu follow tho faintest protest,
What I suffered in those days is incredible; from morning to night cartloads of evergreens blocked up the
hall, so thnt it was impossible to cross
it without having tho hem of your garment entangled and embedded in holly, stray prickly leaves of which would
stick to your stockings, und not un-
frequently work into your shoo itself.
Every now nud then a wild shout from
une or other of the boy laborers would
arrest the incessant din of hammering,
when it would he discovered that Nettle had retreated to a distant mat end
was in the act of gorging the luscious
white berries amid sneezes and rolls of
joy; or that Kill', so good aud silent
for hours, had been found with hor
pinafore full of the bright crimson
beads she had been despoiling so
cleverly far the purpose of threading
necklaces with Hennie up-stairs.
But Rill's tears and Nellie's choking
was nothing compared to what I suffered ou Charlie's account, from the moment when I first saw him on the top
at the highest ladder clinging on toa
rusty nail and balanced on une foot, to
the last hour when he came crying to
me with liis little hands all red and
torn from having fallen down stairs
with a paper full of tin-taoks, which he
had heroically grasped Jo the last.
All that tune I say, I never knew
a moment's peace.
