t'urrent Events and Opinions.
During all the turmoil, all the
excitement, ell the numerous happenings of this peculiar campaign,
there is at least one man—and he
aa much interested ns any one possibly can bu—who neither shirks^
avoids nor puts off his regular duties.
Tliat man is Orover Cleveland of
New York. While the governors
of nearly all the other States have
taken the platform on one side or
the other, Governor Cleveland, having greater personal interest at stake
than all the rest, has remained constantly ut his post of public duty,—
Boston Globe.
Heaven forbid thut Canada should
eve'r elect a President if wo should
be at all likely to go about it in the
same way as our neighbors in the
United States. Hereafter a decent
and self .respecting man might well
be excused for declining a nomination from either party on tbe simple
ground that he was not disposed to
make himself a mark for every form
of insult and brutality. To ask a
man to go through a presidential
contest is like asking him to perambulate for months amid the stench
and filth of the sewers of some great
city.—Montreal Star.

VOLUME 20
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0„ SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1884.
NUMBER 33
We published on Saturday last an
account of the pamphlet in wliich
the German General Yon der Qoltz
maintains that in th. next invasion
of France cavalry must be employed
on a great scale, and that serious
battles of cavalry nnd horse-artillery
only may be expected. This is
known to be tho viow favored by
tho scientific German Staff; and on
Tuesday tho Times described the
great manoeuvres going on near
Cologne^„iii^w)iich thp Rbineland
and Westphidian Corps d' Armee'
are engaged. Thoy were remarkable for the great position assigned
to the oavalry, which on tho first
day had the whole of the work to
do, not a rifle being fired, and the
whole of the infantry being employed
in "mere strategical manoeuvring."
It is known, moreover, that one
great reliance of the Russian Stall'
against invasions by Germany is on
the great numbers of cavalry they
habitually keep ready for concentration in Poland. Tho Germans cannot rival them in this arm. If this
view ia correct, the revival of oavalry
campaigning will greatly increase
the expense of armies and the calamities of war. Cavalry, can never
be oheap, even in a conscript service;
and a mass of oavalry moving in an
enemy's territory must desolate it.
It cannot keep up the needful speed
and carry stores, and must, therefore, live by requisitions, vJhich,
when the number of horsemen rise
high, blight a district like a flight of
locusts.—Pall Mall Gazette.
Some of the opponents of the Scott
Aot are speaking very foolishly
when they talk of the "freedom so
dear to the Britisher, being ruthlessly thrown away from the people by
the ministers of this country" as a
man did in Burford tbe other day,
or of Canada becoming as badly
priest ridden as Ireland. Is freedom not as dear to one man ns an.
other! It ought to be at least. Has
a minister not as good a right as
anyone else to his opinion about the
liquor traffic or any other question
ol the day! And if he thinks that
traffic sinful, and a curse to the community, has. he not a perfect right to
say so, aud strive with all his might
to get it abolished I He is quite
within the law in doing everything
he can in favor of the Scott Act,
and it is yet to be shown that any
minister, or anybody else for that
matter of it, has acted unconstitutionally in working for the Scott
Act, or any other act that will keep
down the evils nf drunkenness and
dram selling. Of course the liquor
sellers have the same right to do
what 'hey can to prevent the act
from becoming law, so long as thoy
do so constitutionally, lt is a matter that has to be decided by force
of opinion. But to ory out about
any man's freedom being taken away
is simply nonsense. One thing is
certain, that if the country has to be
ridden at nil it had much better bo
by priests than liquor dealers, Tho
one would be far less dangerous than
the other has shown itself to be,
This has been a liquor-ridden country long enough, and the people are
doing their best to throw off the incubus by means of the Scott Act.—
Truth (Toronto).
On his return to Minneapolis Cyrus W, Field said to a reporter:
"We have had a most delightful
time.   Eighteen days since we left
here and not a drop of rain. We
havo crossed the Rocky mountains
four times, and I think wo have
seen all there was to be seen. We
left here, went west over the Northern Pacific, stopped a time at Helena, went into the National Park,
thence to Portland and up to Tacoma and Seattle and into British Columbia, baok again to Fago and to
Winnipeg, along the Canadian Pacifio just as far as wo could go, and
then baok to Winnipeg and to the
eastern extremity of the road to
Lake Superior, back to Winnipeg
and over .the St. Paul, Minneapolis
ilc Manitoba roid to this city by
daylight. We have enjoyed it all
immensely. Evj^iaojlity ban been
afforded us to see the road aud tho
oountry, We traveled by speoial
car, and the observation platform
was fouiid convenient and enjoyable.
I have gathered an immense amount
of facts and figures about the roads
and the country. Portions of the
lines that we traveled over in the
night going out we traveled over in
the daytime in returning, and so
havo seen all there was to be seen.
I have found both the Northern Pacifio and Canadian Pacifio built in
the most substantial mariner—surprisingly good roads, considering
their newness—with good roadbeds,
good bridges, and substantial buildings. All the country they traverse
needs men, women and children."'
Speaking of tho stringency of the
regulations respecting the liquor
traffio in the Canadian North-west,
he said: "Why, we had to get a
permit to take our car and its contents into the Indian country. Without it tlio mounted police would
have been ih duty bound to have
taken whatever liquor we had and
to have broken it on the ground.
The law amounts to absolute protection in the Western country, and
thoy are stringent in its enforcement." 	
Christianity and Wealth.
The above is the title of an article
in the current number of tho Century
in which Washington Gladden states
that wealth is increasing at a prodigious rate, especially in countries more
or less under tho influence of Christianity. In order to make this clearly
manifest ho takes Great Britain and
lhe United States as representative
cases, and from 'official returns establishes, beyond all reasonable Question,
every assertion he puts forward. From
these returns for 18G0,1870, and 1880
we havo tho following astonishing facts
adduced: In 1800 the national wealth
of England was estimated at 826,000, •
000,000. Ill 1870 it had risen to $34,-
000,000,000, and in 1880 it had reached
843,000,000,000. These sums are so
large that it is vory difficult to form
any adequate conception of what they
mean. The ordinary mind is somewhat perplexed with a single million,
but when it has to grapple with twenty-
six thousand or forty-three thousand
millions it becomes practically lost.
In the United States the rate of pro
gress has been still more startling. In
1800 the estimated valuation of all
the property, real and personal, in the
great republio to the south of us, was
a little over 1)16,000,000,000. Very
shortly after tho I*. S. census of that
year a wasting war broke out, in the
course of which a million of producers
were destroyed, and property in slaves
nion. to the extent of 81,600,000,000
extinguished, besides, all the other destruction of wealth involved in those
four years of fierce interneoine strife.
In spite, however, of all this, in 1870
the estimated wealth of the country
had risen to more than 824,000,000,-
000, while according to the census of
1880 it had come to be $43,642,000,-
000, thus exceeding that of Great
Britain hy several hundred millions of
dollars.
This shows a rate of progress in
wealth fur abovo that of population,
for while th. latter had during theBD
twenty years increased a little moro
than 50 por cent., the percentage of
the former's progress had beon 151.
Ill 1800, hod the whole property of
the country been equally divided, the
share of every man, woman, and child
would havo been $514, while in 1880
the valuation per capita came up to
$814. The same thing I" a modified
extent can bo said of many other
countries, our own among the rest.
The world then, is rapidly becoming richer, and it remains to bu settled
whethor this is to ho looked upon as
a good or an evil, a blessing to be
thankful for, or a misery to be deplored. About this in a general way
there can be very little doubt, at least
in the mind of the Christian moralist;
for as Mr. Gladden remarks, Christianity cannot he hostile to tho production of wealth without making war
upon itself, "for it is the one grand
.cause of the production of wealth in
modern times.
If then wealth is increasing rapidly,
and if such increase is in itself a blessing to be rejoiced in, tho difficult and
ever recurring question remains, "How
is this growing wealth divided) Rightly or wrongly? If tho latter, has the
Christian moralist anything to say
about a better plan, and if so, what!
Mr. Gladden thinks that ho litis
something greatly better and yot
quite practicable. What that is we
shall indicate vory shortly iu another
article.—Globe.

Hr. Orr's Denial.
In another column we publish a
letter from Mr. Jas. Or, M. P. P.,
in which he pointedly denies the
insinuation respecting himself contained in the despatch which lately
appeared in the Viotoria Standard.
Mr. Orr's statement is not couched
in the most refined language, but
that is a matterof much less importance than the fact that lie pronounces the Standard's insinuation
absolutely without foundation. If
Mr. Orr had accepted a gift from
the Hastings land syndicate for the
purpose of influencing hiB vote, he
■would be a traitor; and we are
glad that his pointed denial, which
we accept, exonerates him from
complicity in what was made lo appear a deliberate scheme of corruption.. It is very likely the person
who drew up the Standards despatch
had quite as much reason to accuse
Mr. Orr of taking a bribe as he had
to accuse the provincial secretary er
other members of the government
of attempting to enrich themselves
at the country's expense; so that,
as one part of the charge has fallen
to the ground, it may fairly be presumed tbe other has no foundation
upon wliich to stand. • Mr. Orr
seems puzzled to understand why
Thb Columbia!- should point to him
as the person indicated by the despatch. There is no reason why he
should be astonished. One could
hardly mistake the intention of the
person who sent the despatch. Before it was published thero was a
report freely circulated on the street
to the effect that Mr. Orr had come
into possession of some Coal Har
bo{ property, and he waa denounced
by certain Port Moody land owners
for investing in a rival townsite.
When the Standard's despatch np-
peared, there seemed to be no doubt
in any person's mind that Mr. Orr
waa the member hinted at, ' So fur,
therefore, from doing bim an injustice, The Columuiax has been the
means of enabling him to vindicate
his character before the public,
The 0. r. it. Track.
In iii issue of Tuesday tho Colonist returns to the discussion of
the condition o/ the railway track
between Port Moody and Spence'a
Bridge. It undertakes, now, upon
its own responsibility, to defend the
statement made by Mr. Haney not
long ago, and which we showed to
be full of misstatements. The Colonist begins by saying that we called
in question the veracity of both the
interviewer and Interviewed. What
we did was to show that the statement was untrue, and from that it
must follow that either the reporter
or Mr. Haney had beeu misrepresenting. We did not venture to
assert precisely where the untruth
lay. It must be evident to everybody who knows anything about the
circumstances that when Mr. Haney
said, "between Port Moody and
Spence'a Bridge the line is as well
ballasted and as easy running as any
line on the continent," he wns not
anywhere near the truth. But the
Colonist now asserts tbat a number
ot gentlemen who came over the
road on Friday declare that it is
"well finished and ensy running!"
Well, we need only say that theso
people have by suoh a statement
simply put themselves in the same
position as Mr. Haney. If the
'road is finished, why in tiie weild
has it not been accepted by the Dominion government and paid fort
But after making it appear that tho
road is finished, and after accusing
The Columbian of perversion because it challenged Mr. Hnncy's
statement, the Cohmrtt itself goes
on to say that there is a place near
the Mission not yet full width, and
that ballasting between Pitt River
and Port Moody hns not been completed! But Mr. Haney said a
week ago that it was "as well ballasted as any line on the continent!"
The fact is that both Mr. Haney
and the Colonist have widely misrepresented' the facts--the former-
we believe knowingly; the latter,
we are willing to suppose, ignorant-
ly. It is preposterous to say the
embankments are up to the specifications. No person passing over
the traok with eyes in Iub hend
could be deceived into a belief thnt
these embankments are 17 feet, or
that the cuts are 31 feet, or that the
road il either ballasted or finished,
Wa have certainly no wish to misrepresent this road, and we have no
possible object te serve beyond the
interests of the comitr-. If Mr.
Onderdonk had need the road for
his own traffic until it was fit to
carry pnssengors, we should havo
nothing to say, But lie has bound
the rest of the carriers hand and
foot and forced all the traffio on to
a road whicli we pronounce unsafe
and monstrous in its charges, and
wo shall denounce tho whole business until the grievance is remedied.
Next weok we shall return lo some
points in tlio Colonist's article which
need revision.
Mnch Ado About Nothing.
Not long ago The Columbian
expressed the opinion that the people of Victoria had no just ground
for complaint against tbe government with respect to the sale of
city lots. The government, it was
stated, had handed over 21 lots to
tlio city, and reserved 18 others
to be kept for public purposes.
Tlio Standard pronounces this statement absolutely false, and asserts
that none of the government lots
were handed over to the city. But
tho Colonist is our authority for
the original statement, and we believe it is virtually.true. In a
well-written article the Colonist on
Tuesday gave a concise history of
the government lut sale, and among
other things reiterated the very
statement for the repetition of whicli
this journal is accused of falsehood.
Tliese 21 lots, it explains, have not
been actually conveyed to the city
of Victoria, but virtually thoy havo,
for they have been resorved and set
apart as an eplanade nnd public
gardens. The Standard, therefore,
has beon merely quibbling because
it did not suit its purpose to state
honestly what woro the facts of the
case. We must say tliat the controversy which has been going on
for some weeks respecting tlie government's action in tliis matter is
extremely foolish. The Standard
perverts the truth to make it appear that the government has acted
.with greater generosity towards
New Westminster than towards
Victoria! If it has, tlie peoplo of
New Westminster would certainly
be glad to know it, and would not
bo slow to express both surprise und
pleasure at the revelation. But tho
Standard mixes up two very different things, either ignoraiitly or wilfully, in order to givo color to its
assertion, It pretends to think
that all the lots contained in tho
public squares nnd the provincial
government lots lately sold, are upon
the same footing. Such u pretension is extremely absurd. The
squares were expressly reserved for
municipal purposes in the original
city plan, and the purpose was designated on the plan. They were
not claimed by tho government, but
were always recognized as belonging to the city. The power to sell
part of them—that. is, to divert
them from the original intention—
was not given by the government,
but by the legislature. In the case
of the government lots the circumstances were altogether different.
These lots were reserved without
any definite object. They might be
required for some public purpose, or
they might not. They were as
much tbe heritage of the crown and
at the disposal of the government
as nny other crown lands in the
province. If the government had
handed over its Victoria lots to the
city, it would undoubtedly have had
to hand over its lots in this city to
us. And in other places there are
many government lots similarly situated whioh would have had to be
surrendered. To have surrendered
them might have been a most generous act towards the particular
municipalities in which they lie, but
it would be equally ungenerous to
the rest of the province.; The people of New Westminster or Nanaimo have .its much right of ownership in Victoria government lots as
tlie people of Victoria; and the publio generally might with perfect
reason object if the government un
dortook to gratify tho selfish notions
of pet. localities by giving away tbe
people's estate. We repeat, the
people of Viotoria have no ground
upon whicli to found a charge of
unfairness against tho government
in this matter. Victoria has been
dealt with even more liberally than
New Westminster in tbe matter of
govornment lots, and we can scarcely
imagine that the sentiments uttered
by the Standard find sympathy in
any extensive circle.

Ewen against the corporation oame before the chief justice on Thursday,

The result of this action has been to

that tha postponement of a Baits under
such circumstances is extremely dangerous. Persons will not come from a
distance when, perhaps, some other
oitizen may apply for an injunction
and there will be no sale. The action
is most unfortunate, and so are all the
circumstances attending it.

Lytton Assizes.
(Correspondopoc of the Columbian.)
Tho assize court was hold at this
placo ou the 18th inst., Mr. Justice
Walkem presiding. Mr. D. M. Eh-
berts nppdurcd as crown attorney, and
Messrs. Then. Davie (Davio & Wilson)
and A. J. McColl (Corbould & Moduli)
were counsel for the defence. The
following is a summary of the principal coses:
In the Oliver Evans case, in which
the prisoner was charged with being
accessory after the fact (full particulars of tho case have already been
published), the grand jury found no
bill. Mr. Theo. Davie had gone up
from Victoria to defend this ease.
In the caso against Ah Sue and 2
other Chinamen for perjury, Mr.
Davie, for the prisoners, took exception to the way in whioh the evidence
which constituted tho perjury had
been given bofore Mr. Hantz, tho coroner, contending that the porjury was
not complete, the evidenoe not being
taken in the manner required by the
aot. The judge held the objection
good, and directed the jury to acquit
the prisoners. The Chinameii were
afterwards arrested on an information
sworn by Mr. Hugsey, government
agent, and brought before Messrs.
Stevenson and Hantz, J. Pa., and remanded for 8 days to allow time to
communicate with the attorney-gen-
oral.
In the cose against John and Jam «b,
tho Indiana who were charged with
perjury in the above case, at the end
of the evidence the crown prosecutor
entered a nolle prosequi, nnd they were
dischivged.
Oct. alias Alick, un Indian, was the
next. Tliis was the 150-mile post murder case, of which particulars have al*
ready beeu published. The grand jury
found a true bill for murder. Mr,
McColl,fur the prisoner, pleaded guilty
of manslaughter, and the plea was accepted. Facts showing great provocation Appearing in the depositions, after
witnesses had been called te prove
prisoner's previous good character, he-
was sentenced to throe year's imprisonment, a sentence which met with general approval.
The other caies were J. M. Hunter
and Elwood Knzart, for stabbing, 2
yean ond 18 mos, respectively; Alick,
an Indian, and Ah Shin, for larceny,
f;ot 2 years each—they were not de-
ended. Peter, an Indian charged
with horse stealing, was acquitted, Mr.
McColl appearing for prisoner. China
Charley, for keeping a common gaming house, was adjourned until next
Clinton assizes, on- application of Mr.
McColl, and bail was taken.
Battle or Beacon lllll.
THE CHEAT 8HAM FIGHT ON TUE8DAV.
(Condensed from llio Colonist.)
On Monday afternoon the Mutino
had been prepared for action, her top*
masts lowered und rigging housed, the
Gardiner guns plnced in position in
the yard-arms and everything made
ready for the carrying out of the programme of the day. At 7:30 the detachment composing the defence towed
by the Satellite's und Mutino s steam
pinuncos,' left Esquimalt and proceeded
to Armadale, where the force debarked
and, accompanied by the Swiftsure's
band, marched to the battery at Fin-
hyson's Point,   Beacon  Hill,    This
force was composed of 63 blue jackets
and 20 marines frum the Satellite and
32 blue jackets from tho Mutine. The
battery at Finhysun's Point was manned by 35 men of lhe V. G. A., Capt.
Wolfenden and LioutB. Gamble and
Nicholles, tho wholo defending force
consisting, with baud, of
170 OFFICERS AND MEN,
all under command of Lieutenant
Jonea, of H. M. S. Satellite. Having
arrived at the Point the blue jackets
and marines piled arms and tho defenders awaited the opening of the
attack. At 8:30 H. M. S. Mutine
moved out of Esquimalt harbor with
the pinnaces, launches, etc., containing the attacking forco in tow, and
steamed Blowly toward a point oppo*
Bite the battery, making a detour and
bringing in with presented bow, about
a mile from the point, and in suoh a
position that only one gun from the
battery could be brought to bear upon
her.' Meanwhile all the avenues leading to the hill were thronged with
citizens on foot und in carriages wending their way there, until at the commencement of hostilities there could
have been no less than eight thousand
spectators dotting .the hillside and
scattered over the field. The day was
generally observed as a
CIVIC HOLIDAY,
all civic and government offices and
schools being closed, and business,
generally bn Government atreet suspended, and it seemed as though every
inhabitant of Viotoria waB out on a
gala day.   Probably
SO GREAT A NUMBER OF PEOPLE
was never before gathered together on
BeaAn Hill, and Victoria's citizens
were reinforced by largo additions
from the Sound. At 10 o'clock the
signal fur attack was made from the
Mutine, whose guns immediately opened fire to cover the landing. At the
same instant the boats uf H. M, S,
SwiftBure containing the attacking
party were cast loose and made for the
shore in gallant style. There were
367 in the attacking party. The starboard division consisting of a pinnace,
a launch, a Bailing pinnace and the lst
gig carried the artillery, and the port
division consisted of a steam launch,
1st cutter, 2nd cutter, despatch boat?
2nd gig and a dingy. Capt, the Hon,
T. S. Brand, commanding the force,
occupied the lst gig in the starboard
division. Meantime the guns in the
battery worked by the looal artillery
kept up a rapid fire in answer to the
man-of-war. For fifteen minutes the
loud reports of the heavy guns echoed
and reechoed over the waters of the
straits, giving the spectators a vivid
idea of what an actual bombardment
must be. The firing from the ship
was very animated, and several broadsides in rapid succession plainly told
what great havoc one of these comparatively small war ships iB capable
of doing in maintaining John Bull's
national honor. Fifteen minutes after
casting loose the prow of the first cut*
ter touched tho beach at a point to
the eastward of the fort, and the crew
jumping ashore rapidly formed on the
shingle. The balance of the port
division coming in in rapid succession.
Lieut, Vander Byl at the head of a
company of blue jackets pushed up
tho steep bank, and on gaining the
summit quickly deployed and
OPENING FIRE ON THE SNEMV,
who occupied the woods, held them in
check. Reinforcements were rapidly
brought up to hold the position and facilitate the landing of the artillery.
In five minutes from the first landing
the launches containing the artillery
were alongside tho beach and everything ready for disembarking. Just
at this time there occurred one of the.
most laughable events of the day. A
marine, who wus about to go down the
gang phnk, caught hiB foot on some*
thing as he stood ou the gunwale of
boat and pitched into the cuol waters
of the bay. So complete was hia submersion thut his cork helmet, floating
on the surface, was the only portion of
him or of his effects that for a moment
could be Been. Amid the roars of
laughtor from tho spectators, who lined
the top of tho bank, the unfortunate
one regained terra firma, presenting a
living embudyment of the motto of his
corps, "per ware per tarram." The
more nimble blue jackets disdaining
the use uf a gang phnk, jumped bold*
ly into the sea up to their waists and
waded ashore in true sailor fashion.
To expedite the landing of the large
guns they were slung over the sides of
tho launches on shears and dropped
into tho water alongside and hauled
ashore, the gunners carrying eaoh a
charge in the breast of his jacket, all
ready for use.   In an
INCREDIBLY   SHORT   TIME
the four pieces were ashore and ready
for action. The drag ropes being
manned by a whole company of blue
jackets, very little difficulty was experienced in getting tho guns up the
high bank and into the battle. Steadily tho advance party of the invaders
drove in the outposts of the defenders
until tho skirts of the woods were
reached, where for a time thoy stood
firm, despite the heavy firo kopt up by
the attacking troops. After ten minutes hot work tho guns of the batte- y
were silenced and tho force occupying
the works commenced a retreat by half
companies to the' vicinity of tho race
track. Tho movement was executed iu
a very, orderly manner, notwithstanding the great difficulty arising from the
thick growth of bush. At the track a
stand was made, and a sharp encounter
touk place, the rattle of the rifle forming a continuous roar. Ou through
the woods camo tho now numerous
attacking party, and aa each company
camo up from tho landing they woro
ordered to prolong the line to the right
and left until ull but tlie reserve were
in action. By tho time the edge of the
wood had been gained tho artillery hnd
come into action on tho loft. Being
again overpowered, Liouteiinut Jones
sounded the retreat and his men slowly retired over tho crest of the lull in
tho direction of the Park Hotel, taking
full advantage of every defensible position. Having drawn his men sufficiently under cover of tho brow of the'
hill, Lieutenant Jones formed line and
awaitod the final attack. Upon this
the
VICTORS  WBRBFORMBb
into line with guns on tho left of marines, and swords having beon fixed
the " advance" was sounded. On
reaching the brow of the hill the line
was halted, and independent firing occurred for about ten minutes, the rapid fire of the artillery showing how
perfectly tho guns were served. The
ropid advance was met by several
crashing volleys by the defenders, but,
being unable to make head against
auoh outnumbering enemies, a retreat,
at doublo quick, was ordered as far as
the Park Hotel. The victorious attacking party, having driven their opponents off the field, the "cease firo"
was sounded. The brigade, therefore,
were formed on the markers.and victor
and vanquished stood together in "the
ranks of war." Anns wero immediately piled and all ordered to "stand
easy," Thia last urder, although the
idea is not expressed in the words,
practically menus an attack un the canteen. Who needs to be told that this
attack was made in a manner that
would do credit tu any Britisher ?" In
a short time the canteen was as dry as
the throats of the men had been before
the onslaught. Admiral Lyons and
stall' were on the field during the day
directing tho movements of the troops,

the chai-gea contained in it aro very
serious and aro auch as no person should
be allowed to moke unless he is pnpand
to back them up by sufficient proof."
Further on you say, "The remarks respecting the weak-kneed member may or
may not be true, but we shall oak for
very substantial proof befon we Bhall
permit it to influence our opinion." Yet
in the next sentence you deliberately
state what you must have known to be a
falsehood, namely, "Ihat the member
referred to must be Mr. James Orr, one
of tho representatives for this district."
What right have you to connect my
uaino with a vile slander whioh is not
pointed at me any more than at any othor
honorable member of the house, with*
out having the proof you assert is ao
necessary beforo making bo slanderous a
statement! You farther aay, "That the
miserable sneak who uttered this vile
insinuation deserves te spend the ro*
maindei- of his days in the chaingang."
What thon docs tho man deserve who
has deliberately published niy name
without tho slightest proof of my connection with tho statement; for 1 can
positively assert that the whole statement is a wilful and deliberate lie.
By your unwarrantable mention of my
name you aro mon culpable than the
slanderer you condemn.

Battle of Htn River.
FRENCH AND CHINESE FLEETS IN CONFLICT.
A naval ollicer on tho United States
ship Euterpristi sends tu the Pittsburg
Despatcli the following account of the
fight on tho 23rd of August between
thu French Hoot ou the Min River aud
tho Chinese fleet uud laid works:—
We found the Chinese fortifications
full of men and everything iu readiness for battle. There were also several Chinese mon-of-war at the mouth
of the river. The French had throe
vessols stationed near the fortifications,
and every day we expected thu fighting to commence Our ship proceeded
up the river as soon as tho water on
the bar permitted, and on nur nrrival
at Shanghai wo found everything in
readiness to protect thu foreignen.
On thu 23rd the vessels in both fleets
prepared fur action.   Threo English
men-of-war, this vessel, and four or
five merchantmen were anchored about
half a mile down tho harbor, giving it
a clear space to the opposing forces.
At 1:55 p. m. n single shot was tired
from one of the French vessels, and in
a fow .seconds
thk battle
commenced. It is supposed in the
first minute and a half fully 100 shots
were fired, moat of thom from modem
breech-loading guns. The French
fleet consisted of the Yolta, flagship;
Aspie, Vipere, D'Estange, Lynx, Dou-
gay, Trouin, Villard, and later the
Triumphant. The Chineso fleet consisted of nine sloops of war, two gunboats, and eleven war-junks. At 10:06
o'olock the flagship Volta opened fire
from her tops, when a general engagement followed. At 2 o'clock tho Chinese flagship was blown up by a torpedo. At 2:08 a Chinese gunboat was
blown up. At 2:45 a Chinese sloop-
of-war on fin drifted down the harbor
and sank abreast of ua, with colors
flying, while another Chinese aloop-of-
war on fin grounded on the flat island
near us and blew up at 4:51. At 3:30
another Chinese sloop*of*war on fire,
with the French colors flying, drifted
down the chanm \. The French kept
on bombarding the navy yards and
forts on shore which took an active
part in the engagement. During and
subsequent to the engagement fire rafts
and junks oame floating down the
river. The destruction of Yung Wo,
the Chinese'flagship, will show
■■ what a torpedo oan do
when properly handled. As soon as
the fight began a torpedo boat darted
toward th'e ill-fated vessel, and in an
instant there was nothing left of the
stately craft but some drifting timber
and broken spars. The Yung Wo waa
built, at the navy yard at thia place.
She was full ahip rigged, of about 2,-
000 toot displacement, and was a beautiful vosmL Her destroyer, the torpedo boat/was about fifty feet long,
cigar-shaped, very low in the water,
and capable of steaming about twenty
milea an hour. After her terrible
work she drifted down the harbor and
anchored near us. We could see that
some of her crew were wounded, as
well as her commanding officer. Our
vessel sent qptgioal aid to her as soon
as international Uw permitted it. As
far as could be awn only one Chinese
vessel
MADE API (N»|M HBP FIGHT.
This was a gunboat commanded by a
young Chinaman who had been educated in America. HU gunboat waa
the target for a gnat many French
guns, but ha tent dfwn gallantly, hia
flag flying, and jwttf ■•# his vessel was
sinking he fired a parting shot. The
rapidity of the French fire completely
demoralised thi ChiftMo, and the
French gunnefll' marksmanship was
excellent. Their machine guns did
frightful execution. Ons) of the Chinese vessels that sank shortly after the
fight commenced was a terrible sight.
Her decks were oovend with blood
and the mended remains of her crew.
The Hotehk» revolving cannon on
the Frenoh ship* kept up a steady fire.
One of these auns, properly managed,
is onoHgh to' clear tht deck of any
ship, Only two of the Ohintse vessels
were
AH-6AT AWBR THK BNOAOEMBNT.
They escaped by getting up the river
into shoal water. 'Oneof these vessels
sank shortly afterward on account of
injuries reoeived in the fight, and the
other one is now aground with her
back broken. The French fire con*
tinued until night. They shelled the
batteries on shore, and drove the Chinese from them. The navy yard and
arsenul were shelled, and a great deal
of damage done to government pro
perty. At night fire rafts and burning junks camo down the river, but
the French gunners succeeded in sink
ing them. With but one or twu exceptions tho Fnnch vessels are uninjured. The Volta hod been hit once
near the water line. The D'Estange
had two shot holes near her rail. The
loss of life on the French side wu only
six, besides the pilot of the Yolta, who
wai an Englishman. The Chinese loss
of life is reported as being nearly two
thousand.

in the middle, were imbedded eighty
seven glistening diamonds. Under the

wero uncorerod, clear, beautiful
stones, of various sizes, but all of great
purity. Iu Mra. Graves' possession was

203 diamonds, Thore wero seized 820
diamonds in all, in addition to aome

"I don't know," aoid Hester. "Perhaps—I cannot tell. I don't know
anything about it; and if I must toll
you the truth, Oousin Harry, I don't
wish to know. It seems to me that all
that is silly between you and mo. You
can come here aa often as you like:
toy mother is always glad to see you,
we are all vory good friends. What
advantage do you think there would
bo in turning everything upside down
—-in making a great fuss and disturbance and changing all our relations/ I
cannot see what object there iB in it.
I think we are much better to stay as
we are,"
"But I don't think bo," said Harry,
stoutly. "If you're going to argue
about it, I nover was good iit that sort
of thing, and you might easily beat
me. But I dont think so. I don't
care about being friends. I want you
to belong to me, to live with me, you
aud your mother too. Why, we might
go on as we are doing for a hundred
years, and we nover oould be of any
use to eaoh other—"
Hero Heater stopped him with raised
hand and gesture. "Oh yes, a great
deal of use. To be friends is about
the beat thing in the world—"
"Not half so good," cried Harry,
"as' being man and wife! My house
might be all at sixes and sevens, and
you could not help me manage it, living hero; and you would never let mo
be of any uso to you. Don't you see,
if we were married I could give you
- everything you wanted? it would be
natural. We should get on together,
I know. I should never grudge you
anything, and your mother could come
to her old home, and I shoifid soe to
her comfort too; whereas here, living
as we are, what can I do? or you for
me?" said Harry. "Ah! that's all
nonsense about being friends. It isn't
your friend I want to be."
"What you say iB very curious to
me," said Hester. "There is a great
deal that is very fine in it, Cousin Harry.. To offer to give me all that is
very nice of you, und I should like to
help you to manage your house. I
have often thought I Bhould like to
try—very likely I Bhould not succeed,
but I Bhould like to try."
"It is the easiest thing in the world,"
he laid, with a smile that was tender
and touched Hester's heart, "As
soon as ever you marry me—"
"But the preliminary is just what
I don't like, said Heater. "I would
tather not marry—any one. I don't
see the need for it We are very woll
ai' ve are, but we don't know what a
new state of things might do for us."
"I know," said Harry, "what it
would do foe me. It would mako mo
very happy and comfortable at home,
which I am not now. It would settle
us both in life. A young fellow is
thought nothing of till he is married.
He may go off to the bad at any time,
he may take a wrong turn, and in
business he is never relied upon in the
same way. When ho has a wife he
has given a hostage to society, thoy
say: that is what it would do for mo.
Except being richer and better off, and
able to make your mother comfortable,
and so forth, I can't say, cf course,
what it would do for you."
"Nor I either," she said gravely.
"All theso things would be very good,
but it might make me into something
I shouldn't like. 1 feel afraid of it,
I have' no inclination to it, but nll the
other way."
! "By Jove!" said Hnrry, which was
an exclamation he never used save
when very hard bested; "that is not
vory complimentary to me."
"Did you wish mo to pay yuu compliments? No, we are arguing out the
general question," said Hester, with
her serious face.
Harry was at his wit's end with ii
patience and provokedness, if we may
use Buch a word. He oould have
seized her with his hands and shaken
her, and yet aU tbe time he was still
conscious that this strange treatment
drew a fellow on.
"I suppose all this means that you
won't have me?" he said, after a pause.
"I think so, Oousin Harry.   I am
pied, her hands in her lap, hor eyes
gazing straight before hor. Nothing
cuuld bo more unlko her usual dislike to idleness. She was lying back
on the settee, thinking, not even asking for lights. Mrs. John stole to
hor in tho gathering darkness and
gavo her a sudden kiss. The mothor
was tremulous and shaken, the daughter very calm.
"Oh, Hester! what has happened?
Have you accepted him?" said Mrs.
John; "have you refused him? Now
it is ovor, you might let mo know."
"I tun just trying to think, mother,"
Hestor Baid.
not satisfied that it would do ub any
good; but. don't rush away in a temper," she said, laying her hand lightly
on his arm. "Dont be vexed; why
should you? I don't mean to vex you.
If I don't sea a thing in the samo light
as you do, that is no reason why you
should be angry."
"By Jove!" said Harry again, "if a
man is uot to be vexed when he's refused, I wonder what you think he's
made of? not flesh and blond."
"Sense," said Hester, "uud kindness. These are the things yuu are
made of, whether you aro angry or
not."
She had risen up, and stood looking
nt him, as he turned round hastily and
made for the door; but this flattery
(if it was flattery) stopped him. He
turned round again, and stood looking
at her, tantalized, provoked, soothed,
not knowing what to say.
"If you think alt that of mo, why
won't you havo mt?" he said, stretching out wistful hands toward her.
Hester shook her head.
"I don't want to have—any one,"
she said,
Mrs. _ John had buen listening on
the stairs.     Not listening—sho was
too far off to hear a word—but waiting for the indications whioh a stop, a
sound of movement, tho opening of a
door  might  give.   The stair was nu
old oaken one at the end of the passage, hidden in the ovening dimness;
dark atany time, even in the day.
When the door did open at last,
though it did so with a littlo jar ob
from an agitated hand, yet two voices
came out, and the sound of their conversation was not angry, nor like that
of people who had quarreled.   But,
pn tho other hand, it was not low like
tbe talk of lovers, and Mrs, John
could, uot conceive it possible that if
ho  had  been accepted Harry would
have left the house without seeing
her.    That was impossible.    Eithor
nothing had  been said on the subject, or else—    But what ehe'l   She
was confounded, and  could  not tell
what to think.     Hester went out
with him tb the veranda door.   It whs
ahe who did most of the talking. Sin-
called out to him something that sounded like, "Don't he long of coming
baok," as ho went out.   Mrs. John by
this time had hurried out of the stair*
case, and rushed to a window whence
aho oould see  him departing,    He
turned round and waved his hand, but
he also shook his head  with a look
more completely lover-like thau Mrs.
John had yet seen him cast at her
ohild.   It was full of tender reproach,
yet pleasure, disappointment; but also
something that was far from despair,
"It if all very well for vou to lay
to," ho Mid.     What did it mean?
Mrs.  John hurried down when he
had disappeared, tingling with curiosity and anxiety.    She found Hester
sitting In the twilight, quite unoecu-
The day after this interviow, whioh
had excited everybody, and whioh not
only Mrs, John, bht the chorus of at*
tentivo  neighbors  had  folt  in their
hearts to be of tho most critical importance,   Hester   had  as  happened
sometimes,  a  commission  from  her
mother—or rather, as she was the active   house-keeper  and  agent in all
their business, a necessity of her own
which took her ta Redborough.   Mrs.
John had beon brought up in the age
when girls were supposed to be charming  and  delightful  in proportion as
they woro helpless, and her residence
abroad hnd confirmed her in the idea
that it was not becoming, or indeed
poBsible, to permit a young woman "of
our class" to go anywhere alone.   But
what was it possible for the poor lady
to do?    She could not herself walk
into Redborough, a  distance which
was nothing in the estimation of tho
young and energetic.   All that Mrs.
John was capable of was to bemoan
herself, to wring her hands, nnd complain    how   dreadfully   things   were
changed, how incapable sho herself
would have boen of going anywhere
unaccompanied—nil of which galled,
almost  beyond  endurance, the  high
spirit of Hester, whose proud consciousness of perfect capacity to guard herself wherever Bhe chose to go, was yet
so much imbittered by the tradition of
her mother's prejudice that hor expeditions, harmless as they wero, always
appeared to her a sort of confession of
lowliness and poverty, and defiance of
tho world's opinion,   Thus she moved,
swift and proud, about thu streets,
looking neither to the right hand nor
the left, with a half-shame, half-scorn,
of her unprotected ness, whicli mingled
oddly with her indignant contempt of
the idea uf wanting protection at all.
No messenger evor went bo quickly or
returned su soon as Hester, under thia
double   inspiration.      She  skimmed
along  with that "springy motion in
hor gait," as straight and as light ns an
arrow; and before the chorus of the
Vernonry had finished communicating
to   each  other .the exciting fact that
Mrs.  John had once more permitted
that girl to go into town by herself,
and asking each other what she could
expect was to como of such proceedings, Hester would walk back into Lhe
midst of tho conclave with such a consciousness of all their whisporings in
the largo eyes with wliich sho contemplated  thom  as  sho  passed   to her
mother's dour, as suddenly hushed and
almost abashed tho eager gossips,
"Sho can't have been in Redborough," Miss Matilda would Bay, breathless, when the girl disappeared. "Nobody could go so quickly as that. Sho
has Hover been there at all. Dear
Mrs. John, how Bhe is taken iu! She
must have had some appointment,
some rendezvous; thore can't be any
doubt of it."
"You know best, ladies, how suoh
things are managed," Mr. Mildmay
Vernon would say with his acid smile,
which was like a double-edged weapon
and cut overy way.
This was the usual course of affairs.
But un this particular day she did not
surprise thom in their animadversions
by hur rapid return. She was as long
as an ordinary mortal. It was already
afternoon when she sot out, and tin
early autumn twilight had almost begun when she returned homo. The
weather was no longer warm enough
to permit of those hostile meetings in
the summer-house where the Vernonry
disputed and fraternized. They were
all indoors, looking uut—Miss Matilda seated in her window, with her
work-tablo displayed, Mr. Mildmay
making himself uncomfortable at tho
only angle of his which commanded
the gate, to watch for the girl's return.
If Harry accompanied her baok, the
community felt that this would bo certain evidence as to what had happened;
but they wore still full uf hope that
Hurry had nut been Buch a fool. It
strung up their nerves to the highest
pitch uf suspense tu have to wait so
long, especially as it was evident that
Mrs, John, too, waa exceedingly nervous about her daughter's delay. Sho
was seon to go uut at least twice, with
a shawl over her cup, to look out along
the road, and twice to return disappointed. What was aho anxious about?
Very goud cause she had to be anxious,
with a girl like that wandering, no
one could tell where, about tho streets!
And whore could alio be? and whom
could sho bu with? Of course things
could not go on like this; it must come
to light sooner or later; for tho credit
of the family it ought not to bo allowed to go on, This was wlmt the
chums said.
In tho mean time Hester had done
hor business aa nuickly as usual, but
on her return had fouud herself waylaid. Edward, with whom hor intercourse had been sn broken, who had
established himself un the fuoting of u
confidential friend ou the first day of
her arrival, and at intervals whon they
liad met by chanco since then, had
spoken and luukod as if this entente
cordiale had novor beon disturbed— Edward was lingering upon tho oJgo of
the Common on this particular afternoon on his way home, apparently,
though it was oarly. It would be
diflicult to explain HoBter'B feelings
toward him. He piqued her curiosity
and her interest boyond any one of
tho limited circle with whioh the girl
had to do. There wore times when
hur indignation at tho contrast between
his fraternal and almost tender accost
on their accidental meetings, nnd the
way in whioh ho held himself aloof
on more publio occasions, was uncontrollable; but ynt there rarely occurred
any of these public occasions without
a moaning luok, a word said in an un*
dortunu whicli conveyed to Hester a
curious st-tiBo of secret, intimacy, of
having more to do witli Edward's lifo
than any of tho fine peoplo among
whom ho was su muoh mure visibly
familiar, Sho was young onough to
havo hor imagination excited nnd kept
in a state of tantalized intorost by
those tactics, and also to bo indignant
by any suggestion that this mode of
treatment was.not honorable ou his
part. Not honorablo! The idoa
would havu roused Hestor into proud
indignation. What was ho to hor that
it should matter how ho behaved? His
blowing hot and cold, his holding off
and on, which a moralist would havo
condemned summarily, which the gos-
»ip< would lmvo delighted iu commenting upon, what was it to her?
