current Events and Opinions.
Henri Rochofort, like Mr. Stead
of the Pall Mall Gazette, is a pro
fessionul sensation-monger, unit the
story about the befenuyal of Gordon
by' whicli he expects "to smut' u
thrill of horror through tlie civilized world" will' not easily obtain
credence. But if there is any truth
in the story it corroborates the opinion expressed by us that Khartoum whs really in the'MuIkK's
power long before its, fall, ft'iitl- vr&-
allowed' to remaiii -ostensibly W-C-JBi*-
don's hands'only us a trap for the
British army.—The Week.
Gordon's diary is rather heavy
reading, because it contains but few
fuels und many reflections, which
uro more curiods than valuable. It
was a mistake sending him to Khartoum, and when there he seems
to have quito misunderstood his
mission. • 11 appears to Imve been a
point of honor with him to remain
there in order to induce us to send
an army to .succour the garrisons.
This is however, precisely what he
had been distinctly informed that
we would not do, and to abuse our
-ollii-iftls in Egypt for not altering
the decision in eousi-queneo of his
.declining to leave, is hardly fair.
One cannot help, however, admiring
tit-is. wrong-headed heroism and his
-superb contempt for death, and regretting that he failed to perceive
tliat his disregard of his instructions
would cost hot only his life,'but
that of many others..— London

There was never u less serious
trial, probably, than* that; ioif Mrs.
Dudley for shooting t)'Dpnovan
Rosa. Her name, Yseult,.is so associated with tho ohief of English
romantic legends that it suggests
extraordinary incidents, tiud,', her
trial was unquestionably unique.
Conviction nnd a severe sentence
would have affected the public mind
very unpleasantly, The reason,is the
general, conviction that Rossa is a
cowardly inciter of ignorant men to
commit dastardly crimes, and that
ho has not lieen prosecuted and punished as he should have been. How
Mrs, Dudley would escape was not
clear, but there was little doubt
that she would not be convicted.
The verdict of insanity was received
with smiling incredulity. Mental
derangement did uot appear in the
remarks made by her at the trial,
and her appeal was'not in itself
evidence of a disordered mind. We
do not mean, however, to. make
light of it. If prosecuting oflicers
fail to do their duty, or if the laws,
do not cover cases which they ought
tU> cover, the remedy is not in indi-
• vitjhia) actiou. Mrs. Dudley can
.■not he permitted to try nnd con-
,deinu lyjd execute O'Donovan Rossa
i because tiie law and its officers nro
.remiss. 2&js,. however, is clear,
itliat when « Mian is shot by a woman, and iputiUc opinion, knowing
the. circumstances, absolves her and
the jury which refuses to convict
her, there has beeu provocation oi a
kind which the law and its oflicers
certainly ought to notice, Law
ought to punish an offence which
publio opinion, authorizes a private
?erson to punish at liis discretion,
f it be no offence to shoot O'Dono-
■yau Rossa. it is because the law
-ought to deal with .him.—Harper's

Lost Treasure.
Ever aiiicu tliu East river Ima hud a
history, wu Iiiul rocm-iU of disasters
around Flood Rock, due lo the swift
curreiitn and tho treacherous character
of tlie rocks themselves,' It was
against Flood Rock that the'British
frigate Hussar ran in tho early ybira
of tho War for Independence,, receiving such injuries that she sunk about
a .mile from there with-..it is alleged,
about half a million dollars of English
gold intended for the pay of the Hessians iu fighting for the British cause!
For the <Ja*tf'tweijty years spasmodic
attempts nave been maile tn j-ut up
this money; and from timo to time,
bits of Umber, .pieces of gold coin,
old cannon, bulls, otc, ate: brought to
the surface. The trouble with the
work is, that the Hussar sank in sixty
feot of water, mid that a century's
delay has allowod uot to fling Some
twonty feet more in mud and sand.
A new cuinpapy^is now at work, after
five different- organizations have tried
it und given up. More than $100,000
have been spent in trying to get nt the
gold which is popularly supposed to he
iu the treasure chests nf tlie Hussar. I
■ay popularly supposed, beoausethe best
authorities aro very doubtful whether
thero is any such gold there. An
acquaintance of. mine,,.who was once
invited to join a company organized
for the purpose of sinking an immense
cofferdam around the Hussar, took the
trouble to go tn England himself uud
look into tha government records for
trncus of that gold'; hu could find no
mention of such a sum having been
sent to America iii the Hussar, although the accounts seemed to be very
carefully kept, und he could find no
record of sueh a loss. Nor wns it mentioned .in the parliamentary debates or
the newspapers of tho time, The letters from British oflicers to the home
ollice ure still in existence giving detailed accounts of the loss of the Hus-
Hitr nnd enumerating almost every article lost in hor, down to tho proporty
af the common sailors; yet no mention
whatever is made of that large sum of
I'old for which wo Americans have
beou working, hu hard. The present
understanding is tliat the company
now at work will give tho government
of the United States one-tenth of
whatever treasure it may recover. —.V.

(<i)(i|l .wiU \iu,vt< ,\\i$d_ of ull his.i'our-
«fi» aud ifJi 'his capacity. For nll
the chief purposes of leadership and
of debate he will stand almost
alono in tho house of commons.
The respectable Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach, on whom Lord Randolph
has devolved for thu present the
.dignity of leadership, is respectable
■.and not much more. He does every-
;thing respectably, nothing brilliant-
)ly. He is a respeotabla financier
.who will make a respectable bitten-
■cellor of the excheiiuer, and bring
in a respectable budget, and make
a speech that will be listened to
With respect by the house. Lord
* George Hamilton, who takes the
navy, is a fluent, plausible, clever
speaker, capable of dealing with
figures and mastering facts. He
has long been known as one of the
coming young men of the Tory
party, but to' make him*a cabinet
minister and first lord of the admiralty is to make a smart frigate do
duty a? a line-of-Witljie ship. ..So.of
Mr, Edward Stanhope, who becomes
vice-president of the council, Ho
is industrious, lucid, trustworthy,
and will do his departmental work
well, though his views on education
are too ecclesiastical to allow him
to develop the present system freely.
These three mon excepted, Lord
Randolph has not a single colleague
in thu commons who belongs even
to the second rank of debaters, Mr.
As every lady in America will be interested in knowing the dreji of the
first-.gentleman iu Egypt, I. may be
permitted tu. describe it. His Highness who is somewhat Bliort and stout
in (Jersoir, wore a black frock' coat,
white vest, nud trousers 'of a greyish
hue, and uncommonly, neat morocco
shoes. His linen wns spotloss, and
liis broad expanse of shirt front was
ornamented with three simple diamond-
shaped gold studs. His other jewellery
was not conspicuous. His dark, luxuriant 'hair was carefully arranged and
his full beard closely trimmed. Altogether, with his rich brown complexion, Ina dark, expressivo eyes, nnd
his features, which if not of the
hi<»he»t type' of beauty were hot displeasing, he seemed as well dressed and
handsome :i»ontluinnii as one could meet
ou a summer's day. . His countenance
changed ' frequently, according to
the character of the conversation. His
gestures were simple mid energetic -a
movement of the thumb uf his right
hand with the forefingers closed, nnd
an uccnsiounl thrusting out of the
forefiiiuuv of tho left hand toward the
auditor or into space to emphasize his
remarks, . whioh wero often, and not
always iu royal fashion, in dead earnest. He *jpul.e English fluently aud,
when not carried away by the rapt
rash of his thoughts and feelings, with
creditable correctness. Occasionally,
when most iu earnest, he slipped half
off his chair tu bring himself a littlo
nearer to his auditor. Now and then
ho drew his lega (which are not of thu
.y-agent) up under him on the heavy
upholstered chair, showing that something of the Oriental habits were still
instinctive with him.—Alexandria Lei-

im tilgantie tynamlte Explosion
'New York, July 8.—In tho early
■ummer of 1875 real estate brokers
wero -surprised to Iiml nn oSclrnnrd
nary number of houses in tlie upper
part of tho city, on tlio east aide, on
their books for sale. Strango as it
mny seem, tho real cauae for tliis dis-
poiitton to sell on the pnrt of real
estate owners in a certain part of the
city was tho fenr that tho explosion tit
Hell Gate, arranged for September,
1875, might do a terrible amount of
damage and throw down houses by tlio
hundred. Four months in advance
tho newspapers had beon describing
the wonderful work under'the East
river, at Hallett's Point, emphasizing
tlw terrific amount of dynamite wliich
wns to break up thousands of tons of
rock und do in hnlf a second work
which would have required yt
anti*dynamite days. When it cnuic
within n week of tlio time for tho explosion mnny iterVhua people left the
city and thousands of persons who, iu
ordinary circmnstaiices, would not be
thought particularly timid about aliy-
tlung, mnde preparations for the event,
which ill the liyht of what actually
took place, seemed afterwards to be
very ridiculous. For instance, 1 hail
some friends, living on Madison av
nuo, more than two miles nwny from
thu scene of thc explosion, with a
good milo and a hall' of solid rock and
earth betweuu thein and the river,
who went to thu Iroublo to take down
nil their chandeliers and to go out and
stand in Central Park at the moment
when tho explosion occurred. The
work of taking the chandeliers down
cost them nearly one hundred flollurs.
Gun. Newton, who has' had entire
charge of this gigantic work nt Hell
Gate since its bcgimiing. hnd always
told those who applied to him for information tliat in all probability the
effect of the exclusion would be almost
imperceptible on land, although the
wnter iu the neighborhood of Hallett's
Point might be thrown to great height,
Thia wan exactly what took place.
When Gen. Newton's little daughter pressed the button wliich
conned ted the electric buttery with
the 49,000 pounds of dynamite
stored away under the reef there was
u dull roar und an upheaval of several
thousand tons of water; the shock wns
felt distinctly all ovor tho city, but no
damage was done. Hallett's Point
consisted of n ledge of rocks extending out from Astoria into the East
river nnd forming fl very ilnngorous
obstacle to navigation, especially as the
currents of the river are rapid and
strong. When thu broken rock hud
been removed from tho three acres
which tho roof occupied, there remained twenty-six feot of wnter—
enough for any vessels likely to puss
through the sound at present. Tho
value of the improvement to navigators was such that n memorial was at
mice presented to congross asking that
Flood Rock, nil exceedingly dangerous ledge, some nine acres in extent,
and right in tho middle of the channel, midway between Now Vork and
Astoria, might bu similarly dealt with.
The cost of the work at Hallett's Point
bad been nearly half a million dollars,
bnt so evident wore tlio advantages
accruing from it that congress could
not hesitate, nml the necessary appropriations were made for Flood ltook.
Already beforo the Hallett's Point explosion, survey,- had been made on
Flood Rock and a preliminary shaft
had beeu sunk. It wiib one of the
terrors of pilots iu thu Eu.-t river, ami
had been so from time immemorial.
But so large was its aron, that until
thc complete succean of the work at
Hallett'a Point, the notion of blowing
awrty so tremendous a mass of rock.
weighing several million tons' had not
been thought nf.
PLOOU ROOK EXCAVATIONS,
Our govornmont has  now been at
work under Flood Rock reef fur ten
years, and has spent nearly one million dollars, for which there is nothing
to show above water except a few shanties and somo steam engines,   Next
October, if all goes well, an explosion
will take place which will  finish tlio
work.   I wont through the work yesterday afternoon, through the courtesy
of the lieutenant in charge, and while
it is not the sort of place 1 should
care to work in every day, tliere is a
fascination abuut it which cnu only bo
understood by those who have visited
deep conl mines,    When I left the little shed that* is built on top of Flood
Rock and began going down the winding slairsof tho shaft, it was bright
sunlight outside.   Tuu feet below tho
surface it grow dark aud I soon found
that our rubber suits and boots wore
necessities and that it wns worse than
any coal mine I know of.   Ench man
of the party carried in his hand a suck
with an ordinary miner's lamp attached
to it.   There are four 'lights of stairs
cut in the rock, nnd as wo went down
tho escaping steam from tho pumps almost choked us, while the noise of
pumping and of tho rushing waters
made it impossible to hem- uny conversation.    At the bottom  of tho shaft
we woro fifty feet below tho level nf
the Enst rivor.   The muin chamber is
an immense cut out of rock, perbnpa
forty feet in diameter und twonty feet
in height.   In its center is a pit or
woll fifteen foet deep, into which run
all the streams of water, the result of
constant dripping from tho roof of tho
endloss galleries which radiate iu ull
directions.   Iuto this big well go three
groat coils of rubber pipe, which suck
away aud curry thc water up nbovc to
be poured back into thu river again.
The hissing and   throbbing   of' the
putfips, the black darkness of thu pit
nnd galleries, tho clouds of steam, tho
grimy men, covered with   mud mid
ainoke, and thc sense that the tittle
streams of water one fcela dripping
down': open one's head from the roof
are but. reminders of tho tremendous
volume <ir rushing wator in tho river
above, surging and pounding on the
tdhkt in an effort to drown us till—all
this makes a queer picture, which is
but.-ymlyliUip by the tm kerosene
torches, wholly insufficient to illuminate more than a few feet of spneo. In
■all there have boon 21.070- feet of gal-
lories of an average diameter of six
feet eut through solid rock, nccuisi-
tating tho removal nf   80,000 cubic
yards bf rock.   Tho whole uino acres
of reef havo boon undermined by these
galleries.    In the old Hallett's Point
explosion the dynamite was directed
chiefly to blowing down the rock col-
umns which wero loft standing in order
to   support tho roof   of   the minu.
Theso columns were literally packed
with dynamito aud when tho explosion
came were ground to pieces, allowing
the roof to fall in.   In the present case
it is the roof of tho mine which has
been drilled at intervals of five or six
feot apart.   These holes start iu the
rojtyl nnd run up towards the bed of
tho river at an angle of 35 dogrous;
each holo is threo inches in- diameter
and nine feet long, mid reouired fivo
hour*' work of a powerful drill worked
by compressed air. Thore aro 13,700
such holes, distributed ovor thu whole
nine acres. The work of cutting the
galleries and drilling these holes has
occupied a forco of 200 men moro or
less of tho lime during the last ten
years. Tho actual work of excavating
and drilling was finished last week and
now thu men are clearing out the mine
in preparation for loading up. It will
be seen that aa compared with the
Hallett's Point explosion there waa
exploded eight timoB moro nitro-gly-
cerino than had over been used in ono
blast beforo, cither here or in Europe.
New we aro going to set off a blast six
times as big.
150 TOSS OF DYNAMITE.
Iu older to lift these million tons of
rock which constitute Flood Rock reef,
tho government has contracted for
300,000 pouuds of explosives. Of this
quantity 225,000 pounds is ;if anew
compound, thu trade mime of which is
"Rackarock," composed of di-nitro
bens*Qlo--a product of 'nr distillntion
—and chlorate of potash. The advantage :>f this comparatively now explosive is that while it is claimed to be
fully as powerful as thc host dynamite,
it is less expensive and it can be carried about, or tossed about with perfect
ease bo long as the two ingredients are
kept separate. These aru never mixed
except on the ground wliere the cartridge is to be used. Tliu manner of
packing awny this terrific amount of
oxplosive in thu Flood Rock mine will
cost the government nearly §50,000
alone, but as the smallest error or thu
slightest failure of the electric spark lo
explode the whole minu would render
the work of tlio hist ten years worse
than useless, it is thought hest to stop
at no expense in order to insure n perfect explosion. Suppose that in somo
way tho mine failed to explode when
the spark was sent through the wires,
or that only a very small part of tho
dynamite exploded. Who is going
down to investigate the trouble I
Therefore, in order to mako sure thnt
each cartridge will go oil' at the right
time the explosive is to be packed in
copper cylinders or cartridges, eaeh
two and a half inches iu diameter and
two feet long, containing about six
pounds. There wilt be 50,000 of theae
cartridges, the copper alone for which
will cost nearly $30,000. In each hole
in thu rock three, or oven four, of the
cartridges will bo placed nnd rammed
home. Thia will bo delicate work,
performed by volunteers who are to be
pnid $5 a day, and uo married men
need apply. The work of making up
tho cartridges in which thc two ingredients uf tbe explosive have to be
mixed, is thc most particular job of all,
and will be performed in ouo of the
sheds on Flood Hook by men belonging
to the company which furnishes the
explosive. Theso meu are exports in
the handling of dangerous goods, aud
allow uo one to como into their building on any pretext whatever. As the
mine is to bo filled with water before
tlio explosion takes place, lhe cartridges aro to be water-tight, and this
will necessitate tho soldering of each
one with a hoi iron. In ihu Hallett's
Point explosion only 40,000 pounds
of dynamite were used, and tho question naturally occurs, If that quantity
produced quite a commotion in the
neighborhood, what will this do? Gen.
Newton pooh-poohs the notion that
it will do any damage, but I should
nut be surprised to seo a good many
houses along thu East river for sale
this summer at a low price, and I do
not doubt but that thc gas men will
have :t lively time of it taking down
chandeliers ou the first of October.—

E. H. Harden, a well-known farmer
of tho town of Candor, Broome county,
entered a pig-sty on his farm a few
days ngo to make some needed repairs.
At tho firat stroke of his hammer two
largo rats ran out of a holo iu the Jloor
and attacked Mr, Harden, lie kicked
at one of thu rodents and it act up a
loud squealing. In response to the
cry, rats swarmed into the sty from
holes and crevices on every sido. Thuy
sprung upon bim and endeavored to
reach his face. Borden called his dog,
a largo St. Bernard, which came
promptly to the spot and leaped iu
among tbo littlo animals. Tho rats
turned thoir attention to tho dog and
gave Bardon an opportunity to leave
tho sty. Arming himself with a club
ho returned to assist the dog, whicli
had killed a number of rats. The stir*
Ivors, however, fought as furiously as
evor. Foi- toil minutes tho battle'
raged, and then, only half a dozen rats
being left, they retreated. The floor of
the sty was covered with dead rats.
The dog was red with blood from thu
savage biles of rats, which wero of unusual size, some of them measuring
nearly a foot in length. They were of
a deep grny color, nnd nro believed to
be a colony- of the rats wliich hnvo
been annoying the farmers of Bradford
and Susquehanna counties, Peiui., for
some mouths. None liko them have
been seen anywhere nlsu in the neigh-
borhood.—Utiva Observer,
Uow lo Cook for Ilie Hick.
"To make flour gruel properly-"
said Miss Parlou in commencing, "you
luatt of milk, threo tablespoonfuls of flour, and a toaspuuiiful
of salt. Pour all Ihu milk except a
cupful into a double boiler. Mix the
Hour with thu milk you reserved aud
stir it iuto the boiling milk and let it
coak 30 minutes, putting in lhe salt
10 minutes beforo it is done. The
longer milk cooks the moro laxative
it is. If you wish to make thu gruul
especially nutritious cook n half cupful of raisins cut in two in the milk
during tho entire timo. This drink is
vory stimulating, and is oftotl given in
placo of wino to patients. In Indian
meal gruel tho meal must always bo
well cooked, an hour or two boing
usually required. But it is butter to
UBe the very 'fine meal now in use
rather than that milled by the old process, and always, when needed quickly,
put Into boiling water at once. To
make this gruel take one quart of
boiling water, two tablespoonfuls of
medium meal* ouo tablespoonful of
Hour, one teaspoonful of salt; mix the
meal, ite., wiih a half cup of cold
water and pour into boiler. Stir whilo
it is ouokiiig and cook not less than 30
minutes. Always koep tho saucepan
covered."
Miss iVloa advisud lhe nursus to
not trust to guesswork at all—always
measure out carefully. There woro
boiuo born cooks who always came out
right, but thoy wore scarce. She
then took up the subject of potatoes,
saying that fow peoplo knew how tp
boil potatoes or bake them
Thirty minutes to boil amUo to bake
was tbu rule. "Pare thom if to boil,"
suid she. "Put thom iu boiling water
which shall just cover thorn. Whon
dono pour nit every drop of wnter,
put a towel over the kettle, for the
cover on would spoil all."
