The German government is having a deep shaft sunk near Schhule-
Imch, with the object of obtaining
various kinds of scientific information, and especially trustworthy
data concerning the rato of increaso
of tho earth's tomperuture as wo
descend into the interior. Tho excavation is being carried on by a
diamond-tipped borer driven by
water. So far back as tbe beginning of this year the shaft had
reaohed the depth of 1,392 metres,
which is believed to be tho lowest
dept yeli | reached ly boring. The
temperature at successive stages is
ascertained by an ingenious instrument whioh serves us a speoial thermometer, the principle of construction being the fact that as the heat
increases the mercury will expand
so as to flow over tiie lip of a sufficiently short open tube in greater
and greater quantities. The measurement of the difference of these
overflows will give tho rate of increase of the temperature. It has
been ascertained that the temperature at the depth of 1,392 metres
was 49 deg. centigrade or 120 deg.
Fahrenheit. If the temperature increases regularly at this rato, the
boiling point of water ought to be
reached at a depth of 3,000 metres,
and at 75 kilometres we should Iind
the heat at which platinum melts.
This would go to show that the
earth's crust cannot be more than
about one-ninetieth of its radius,—

For some years past certain army
officers who happen to possess political influence have contrived, by
one means and another, to remain
on duty in Washington. Tlie duty,
of course, ig nominal, and in most
cases is not inconsistent with the
leisuro bo necessary to tlm society
service which is regarded, in some
quarters, as the real basis of
standing army. Constant practice
has perfected theee favored officers
in the art of modern dancing, in
which the arms nnd legs are called
Upon for about equal servico. Most
of them can lend a german gallantly, though they have never been
called upon to lead the regiments or
companies to which they are ostensibly attached. A general army
order has scattered these favored
nrmy officers to the far West.
Some who have nover before been
seen by their companies will uow
have an opportunity to cultivate
their acquaintance. In this as iu
some other' matters, the administration disregards what Washington
society would call the eternal fitness
of things. An ollicer who has done
service in Washington teu or fifteen
years is, other tilings being equal,
a better dancer than one who has
spent that period of time on the
frontier. The belles of Washington
and the belles from all parts of the
country who congregate in Washington in the winter season will be
incredulous us to the exigency of
publio service which strips Washington society of its brightest ornaments,—S, ]>, Gall,
Death of tbe Mahdi. -
Tlia Achbur, iti a letter from Suakim,
gives the following particulars as to
the Mahdi's dd&th. Mahomed Achmet, it says, fell ill on Friday, June
10, at 2 ii.m., und byjys own desire
was at once conveyed to a tent outside
thu camp. Np doctor* beiug at hand,
two of the captive miasionaries who
hnd medical knowledge wero summoned to the sick bud. They immediately
Baid tho patient was HI of the smallpox, and later in the day, seeing that
the disenso was assuming the must
virulent form they told the pntiont to
prepare for tho worst. Tho Mahdi
thereupon called Iub nephew, Abdullah, named him Ids successor, and gavo
him lun sword. On Suturdny evening
tho patient wna in a condition past
hope. He thon bndo a eolcinn farewell
to hia family, nnd adjured his successor
to continue the war ugninst the Christiana. He expired nt 5 n.m. on Sunday, tho 21st, und was buriod at sunset iu a grave within his tout. The
tent was afterwards burned.
The Political Correspondence of thia
evening contains n letter from Alexandria, Htntin-j tlint the news of the
Mnhdi's denth is confirmed from
great many sources. The Viennese
newspapers ull write1 of the event as
being certified boyond doubt, and con*
gratulnte the British government upon
it. The Fmndenhlatt says the ovent
must be rognrdod as ii truly fortunate
occurrence. Tho impostor fins vanished, and the common manner of his
death must dispel tha delusion which
the credulous entertained as to his
being a mnn favored by Heaven. The
Presse observes that the Mahdi did not
livo through tho three years wliich he
hud predict nd ns the term of his mission on enrth, and this fact alone must
shnke tho popular superstition about
him. — Vienna Despatch to tendon

Mr. Lewis Appleton hus just published a carefully considered article
in whioh he deals with the national
expenditures of nil European countries, including suoh small ones us
Montenegro, Denmark, Greece mul
Hervia. The information, whieh ho
gives in tabulated form, reveals the
astonishing fact tliat the total
annual expenditure in Europe on its
armies nnd navies amounts to the
astonishingly large sum of 9917,
500,985. The largest annual expenditure is by Hussia, the amount
being $230,512,500. France comes
noxt, with $168,653,015, and for
the same purpose thero are expended by Great Britain and Ireland,
$155,603,775—a good third. Compared with this the expenditure of
the others, even Germany, considering the magnitude of the army
which that nation has to support,
looks very smalt. The expenditure
of the German empire on its army
and navy amounts to $113,123,745,
Austria, including Hungary, spends
on its armies and navies $67,068,-
075. Italy spends a little over
1060,000,000. Tlie remainder are
smaller, boing, Spain, $31,250,000;
Turkey, $27,500,000, and Holland,
$17,500,000. Largo though the
expenditure on the armies and navies of all these countries be, the
amount required for tlie payment of
the interest on the debts of these
countries is still larger, reaching tht;
extraordinary amount of $1,037,-
159,175. Franco has the largest
debt of all, tho amount being $■!,-
800,000,000, involving the annual
payment for interest of $272,500,-
000. On the $3,790,000,000 of
debt ou the British empire, almost
1150,000,000 is Iwing paid annually  h,s wifo, "fop -ml.*, ur you'll 'we\o

"What do you think of thnt horse?"
tiBketl n Wnll-»ti-cet banker of a friend
nt nn up-town hoarding stnble nfter
the close of business the other after-
noon, ns ho pointed to n tlun-legfjed
specimen of horseflesh which a hostler
wus hitching up to a rond-wagon.
"Looks n trifle aged," replied thu
friend, as he guzed ut the animal with
a knowing look.
"Whoso ctow-bnit is. thnt ?" inquired
nnother friend, who jniiwd the couplo
nt that moment. ■'   i
"Whnt do you think of him ?" ittked
one.
"Whnt do I think of him? He wus
a respectable plow-horse once. Is he
youm 1"
".Yes."
"Whnt nro yon going ito do with
him) Sell him to n -street car compnny r
"What'b the matter with him ?"
"Can't ynu loll;" replied the other,
pityingly. "I thought you understood
buses. Uo iu foundered. Listen to
him breathe."
"What horse are you talking about
nsked another acquaintance.    "That
bag of bunes ?"
"Yes," replied tho owner.
"Why don't ynu finish him ? You've
got a goud framework there. All you
need is to put the weather-boarding on,
then send him round to the upholsterer's to hnve some hair put on."
"When did you feed him last?"
asked another acquaintance. "He
looks -rather slinky." . _ *.,
"He hns V-iidgalln on his hind leys,"
remarked ono of the party. "I
wouldn't give you $5 for him."
"He's 40 years old if he's a duy,"
■aid anothor. "Why don't you send
him to n museum?"
''He's got the hots," said nnother.
"I hnd n horse onco that had tho hots,
nnd n horso that's got the hot's ain't
worth shooting."
"What will you givo mo for him ?"
asked the owner when the horaomeu
Iiml finished expressing their opinions.
"Will nny gentleman hero givo me
$500 for him ?"
"Fivo hundred dollars for n hunt)
thill's got tho heaves ?" naked one of
tho party, "why, I wouldn't give you
500 cents."
"Will y«u givo me $250?"
"No, sir," said another. "That's
too much forn windbroken, windgalleil
piece of bricu-brnc. Why don't you
hnvo it stutiud and varnished?"
"Will you givo mo $100?" nsked thu
owner, who begnu to look us if ho wus
sick of Ins bnrgniu,
"Hu isn't worth half that." snid
the former, speaking with decision.    '.
"Whnt will you give mo, them''
"I'll givo you 10 conts if you'll
throw in the harness und pay for the
funeral if he dies beforo I onu drive
him out to tho fertilizer's." ,
"Well, gfliitlemon," replied the
owner, hs hu slopped into the wnyn
nnd atnrtnd to drivo awny. "I sue I
can't a trndo hero."
"That's a mighty good horso," remarked thu. proprietor of the stnble

"How eld is he?" they asked.'
"Six yenrs old."
"Yos, but hois nil knocked up."
"Smind ns a dollar.''"
"In had condition, though?"
"Never iu better.     Made a record
of 2:24 last week."
"How much did, he cost?"

Wednesdny Moralns, Sept. S, iwts.
The postmaster-general of tlie
United States proposes to introduce
a new system of delivery that will
ensure the despatch of letters to
their destination without delay.
Persons who wish to have letters
promptly delivered upon arrival at
the office to which they are addressed must attach to them a special
delivery stamp for that purpose.
This stamp is in addition to the
postage-stamps, and all letters to
which it is attached wil! be guaranteed immediate delivery by special
messengers. All towns with a population of 4,000 or over will be entitled to this system. The cost of
a special delivery stamp is not
stated.
Some American newspapers attempt to ridicule the action of tho
Canadian government in protesting
against the appointment of James
Whaleu as U. S. consular agent at
Fort Erie, Ont. The ground of our
government's objection is that Wha*
lon is a Fenian who took a promi-
nont part in tho Fenian invasion of
Canada from Buffalo some years
ago. It may seem to certain American sympathizers with the dynamite party a very trivial thing to
cause the loss of a number of Canadian lives, but we do not so regard
' it. We hope the Canadian government will resist firmly such an appointment. To accept Whalen as
an American government agent in
this country would be unpardonable.     	
American newspapers, and especially those of San Francisco and
California, continue to express their
disapproval of the postitiaster-gen
eral's actiou in refusing to renew
the mail subsidy paid to the Pncifii
Mail Steamship Co. for carrying
mails* from San Francisco to Australia. The withdrawal of the subsidy, it is now positively stated,
will be followed by the withdrawal
of the steamships, and American
trade will seriously sutler. But if
a new line of steamers is put on
between Burrard Inlet and Australia, calling at San Francisco, tlie
loss to Sau Francisco's trade may
be prevented. It is not necessary
to the success of that trade that it
should be carried in American ships.
So long as the United States continues to adhere to the prohibitory
tariff now prevailing, so long she
must be content with third or
fourth place as a maritime nation,
and to see her wares carried in
ships which do not sail under her
fla«*
The Victoria Times calls The
Columbian's attention to tho fact
that each tender for Point ElUce
bridge waB to be accompanied by a
plan, and that the lowest tender did
not necessarily mean the cheapest
work. The point is probably well
taken, but when tlie Timet further
declares that the government selected the "poorest plan" we must
ask for substantial proof. In other
quarters it is denied that the plan
adopted is the poorest, and the
Colonist asserts that the present
bridge is stronger than one would
be constructed upon the plan submitted by the next lowest tender,
which was §5,000 above tho tender accepted! We do not by any
means accept all the Colonist's statements as gospel, but it is certainly
as good an authority ns the Times.
After reading what has been published respecting Point Ellice bridge
we cannot see that the Times has
been nt all successful in its nttempt
to fasten blame upon the government.   	
. From the annual report of the
registrar-general just issued we
learn that the population of Great
Britain goes ou steadily increasing,
while that of Ireland decreases as
steadily. In 1841 Ireland had a
population of 8,200,000: in 188H
its population is only 4,018,000.
During the same period the population of Scotland has increased from
2,622,000 to 3,908,000, and that of
England from 15,929,000 to 27,-
499,000, Doubtless many of the
Irish, and some of the Scotch, have
gone to swell tho population of
England in these years, but Ireland's depopulation is chiefly the
result of poverty and famine nt
home and foreign emigration. In
the 10 years from 1841 to 1851 the
population of Ireland decreased
nearly two millions. The population of the united kingdom has increased from 15,902,000 in 1801 to
36,325,000 in 1885. The preseut
population is divided as follows:
England, 27,499,000; Scotland, 8,*
908,000; Ireland, 4,918,000,
Now that Gen. Grant is dead and
buried, and the smoke of the minute guns has cleared away, some
American journals are venturing to
question whether, after all, he was
as great a commander as his admirers have painted him. Doubtless while the nation was under
the excitement aroused by the circumstances of the general's death
some things were said about him
more flattering than the facts might
fully justify. But Grant was undoubtedly a man of extraordinary
parts, and his memory will live as
the savior of his country long after
his critics have followed him to the
place of silence. He came to the
front just when the nation needed
a man of his iron will and resources,
and he was a complete success. Let
his memory rest with tlie fresh
laurels which encircled his brow.
Spread or lhe Plapue.
Choleru is reported in Italy and
in Japan. Undoubtedly the plague
is spreading. Its presence in Japan
is a matter of more immediate con-
corn to us ou tins coast than its
spread to France and Italy. Japanese trade is largely with China and
San Francisco, nnd the trade relations of both San Francisco and
Victoria with China are very intimate. If cholera goes to China, it
will almost certainly spread with
alarming rapidity. The circumstances and habits of the Chinese
are extremely favorable for the development of such diseases. The
country is very populous, and the
habits of the people are dirty.
Hundreds of the poorer classes may
be found huddled together in premises where there is not room for a
dozen people. If cholera should
tind its way into China, it will most
likely find its way but again, and
will cross to North America with
the continuous stream of Chinese
emigrants. This is the direction
in which the people of British Columbia may look most anxiously
for the plague. It was hoped some
months ago that the ravages of
cholera would be very greatly modified by the process of vaccination
lately discovered. But tliis hope
has not been realized. Vaccination
has not materially lessened the fatality of the disease, and it is a
matter of grave doubt among medical authorities whether it is really
auy protection at all. It has also
been discovered that the cholera
germs are impervious to frost. They
have been subjected to extreme cold,
but the test bos resulted iu no loss
of energy. Cleanliness and correct
living seem to be thc most successful safeguards.
Railways and Trade-
Railway construction on this continent will probably never bo so
active as it has been during the past
five years. In the United States
this year there have been 1,272
miles of railway built. During thc
same period of last year the mileage constructed was 1,712, and
during the same period of the two
previous years respectively, 2,761
and 5,473. The falling off is very
marked. It is a fact beyond dispute thnt in many parts of the
country railway building has gone
away in advance of public requirements. One result of this is thnt
nearly every railway on the continent is loaded with a debt the interest on whicli seriously criples its
finances. It is estimated that railways in the Unitotl States alone, at
the close of lust year, carried a
funded debt of 83,609,1 IT',772,
which is au increase over the previous year of mon! than 168 millions. During the yoar 1884 the
gross earnings of the railways, so
far as reported, was §770,684,908.
This is a decrease of about 53 millions from the previous year. It
will be seen, therefore, that whilo
the railway debts tire rapidly growing larger, the earnings are growing
less, and the divergence becomes
really alarming. The opening nnd
vigorous operation of the Canadian
Pacifio Railway next year will tend
still further to depreciate American
railway stock. Thu transcontinental trade has certainly not developed
as rapidly its the facilities for carrying it. Iu a few months tho continent will be spanned by four complete lines, all bidding for the
Pacific trade. A considerable share
of the trade that now finds its way
over American lines will then come
by way of the C. P. It The debts
of theso roads seem destined to
keep on growing faster than their
receipts, and unless there is a more
rapid settlement nnd development
of the country, it is difficult to
imagine how the books are ever to
be balanced. The first r.ilway
locomotive began to operate in 1813,
only 72 years ago, We have not
the latest returns at hand, but in
1880 there were 93,637 miles of
railway in operation in the United
States alone, The rate of inorease
ii certainly very remarkable.

The Mission Closed.—Rev. Dr.
Graves, closed his revival mission last
Monday night, and left yestorday for
Whatcom... tip tu the close there
seomeil to-be no flagging of interest in
theso meetings, and there is no room
to doubt that much good has been accomplished. The discourses of Dr.
Graves were characterized by earnest*
ness and directness, and all his methods were marked by the same characteristics. Wo believo speaiul services
will be kept up during this week for
the purpose of helping; those whose
interest has been awakened. To-night
tho services will bo in the Court House,
nnd on Friday night in tho Methodist
church. It is intended that these
meetings shall not be sectarian, and
everyone will be perfectly welcome.
What They Won.—Now Westminster riflemen have boon without a range
for a year, and consequently only three
of them competed at tho annual mooting of thu provincial association hold
lust woek in Victoria, Tha three who
did go, however, kept up bravely tho
reputation of tho Royal City. Mr,
Jnmos Wilson, who does nut belong to
the militia, and could only enter for a
fow of tho matches, carried oft* the
Victoria corporation cup, and money
Rvizes to tliu valuo of $21. Lieut.
IcOoll, N. W. Rifles, although he
did not gain any of the highest prizes,
made a fine record uf steady shooting,
winning a prize in ovory match. All
the prizes were iu money, and aggregated $34.50. Sergt. Scuulhir, also of
the Rifles, won a numbor of prizes,
being placed in nearly all the matches.
Ho was fortunate enough to secure for
tho second timo the N. W. corporation
unp, which now becomes his proporty,
and he also won a number of money
Iirizcs, amounting in all to 835. The
average number of competitors was
about 40.
Postal Absurdities,— From Eagle
Pass Lauding to Farwel! the distance
is 47 miles by the road. But from
Enulu Pass Landing to Furwell by tho
mail route is about 5,000 miles. .Letters mailed at Eagle Pass Landing for
Farwell are sent down to this city,
then to Victorin, then to Tacoma, St:
Paul, Winnipeg, and over tho C. P. R.
to their destination. , There is a stage
running twice a, weak both ways between Eagle Pass Landing nnd Far-
well, nnd wo presume a small subsidy
would induce the stago to carry a mail.
But tha post ollice authorities will
probably not begin to comprehond the
absurditity of tho present arrangement until tho C. P. ft. haa been
opened and the absurdity has disappeared. One of tho practical results
is that business men at Farwell are
forced to buy tboir supplies in St.
Paul or other places in the east,
whereas they could bu supplied much
moro quickly and conveniently from
the Pacilic coast. Wo hope tho authorities may be prevailed upon tu adjust speedily the existing grievance.
Potior; CooiIt.— tin Monday two
prisoners wore fined $2,50 each for
disorderly conduct. Yesterday morning a man named Peck was charged
with stealing a watch from Rico at the
Union Hotel. Peck and Stokes
loft for Victoria ono morning last
week, and tho samo morning Rice
missed his watch. A telegram was
sent to the Victoria police, and the
two men wero arrested and brought
back to this city, Stokes Baid Pock
gnve him tho watch on tho steamer for
safe keeping while he took a iltep,
Peck said ho bought tho watch fro» a
man nt the hotel fur 810. Mr! Stimtcy
identified tlio watch oa the ono he had
repaired for Rice. v The case was dismissed for lack of evidence, but tho
watch was delivered to Rice, Tho
case against a Chinaman for assault
with a bar of iron was remanded, This
cnau first came up on Monday. u It is
believed that an attempt is being mnde
by the Chinese high-fonder*-4o put
this Chinaman out uf the wny because
he is obnoxious to them, ami thu authorities nro trying) to discover the
facta. A Chinaman was up yesterday
for stealing apples frum Capt. Pittendrigh, He seemed to bo nn object of
charity, and the prosecutor asked to
lmvo him discharged with a caution.

The . FkbtfuLj ; IfpR-Jupu*..*■■- Not
many days ngo n party of sportsmen
were returning frum in oruiio on Burmrd Inlet. Coming aver the inlet
fond the conversation turned upon the
lato attempt at highway robbery. The
three sportsmen hnd rifles and ammunition with them, and declared unanimously thnt thoy wouldn't be frightened if n dozen highwaymen, moro or
less, were to appear, Suddenly the
horses stopped with a frightened look,
and a clump of bushes near tho road
wns seen to move. Every man instinctively mndo up his mind that there
was n highwayman in that bush, nnd
thnt he might ouvw them any instant
with a rifle.   -Tint then one of them
remembered that his gun wasn't
loaded, and that all his ammunition
was safely packed away in tho bottom of his valise. Another had tuken
his gun to pieces and packed it in the
case. Tho third had a Winchester
with uo load, nut there was ammunition enough in the magazine, and he
quickly threw a cartridge into position
and covered tho bush. Cautiously
they examined the premises from a
safe distance, and every individual
hair roso ereat as they beheld n living crenture emerge slowly and begin
to ascend a friendly tree. It was soon
dispatched by the rifle, and proved to
be an immense porcupine weighing
about 50 lbs. This fine beast is now
in poBseBsion of Mr. W. Norman Bole,
thu police magistrate.
Militaiiy Protection.— Oapt. Pal
liser, in Toronto Week, gives his views
on tho defence and importance of British Columbia from a military standpoint. Ho says: "You consider it
childish to send torpedo boate to British Columbia, and you are right in that
limit. The late government, howevor,
were considering something more definite, and the papers concerning it havo
been handed to their successors in
oHicc. It is no less than tho formidable place d'armes at Esquimalt for the
Britisli fleet and un army corps opposite to Vladivostock, "The Queen of
•the Pacific." Canada's groat strategic
railway has by its completion given
birth to this grent naval and military
position, only eighteen days from
Plymouth, while its rival nnd "queen"
is 3,000 miles distant from the nearest
railway station. Russian officers will
be the first to appreciate the true value
of this new feature in the theatre of
war. If thero bo n landing on holy
Russian soil they must march to turn
out the intruders. Hence n grave dis
advantage. They are now giving
"check to the queen" iu India. Wo
shall soon be able to say "check to the
king" on tlieir Pacific coast nenr China,
with which nation they are not on good
terms, Our admirable place d'armes
occupies a central position for England,
Canada and Australia. It is easy of
access, has abundant und excellent coal
closo to it, with numerous harbors to
shelter the Imperial fleet. With
gard to provisions thero is nll Canada
and British Columbia to be drawn on.
Should a laudingjie ef lee ted and earthworks and guns mounted on Russian
soil, the lumbermen with timber from
British Columbia could house the
troops. Russian officers would have
to consider how thoy could turn out
20,000 British troops supported by
their fleet. Would thoir army march
over the wastes of Siberia, or come by
sea? Those would bo thu questions.
The answer would probably be that
they wero not ready yet, and that
meantime pressure on India should be
relaxed; iu other words, thero would
be no war."
Poison kd.—Scarcely a family exists
but that some member is suffering with
bad blood and poisoned secretions from
constipation giving rise to Rheumatism,
Scrofula, Eruptions, Catarrh and other
complaints indicating lurking blood put-
son which a few bottles of Burdock
Blood Bitters would eradicate from the
system,   Mm_m_m_mm_m_m___———
Sympathy ror Kiel.
A Montreal despatch snys: How the
sympathy for Riel runs in thn province can be soon from tbo following
episode. The other night at Lachine
a banquet was given by some residents
of that place tu tke members of the
65th. In tho course of the festivities
a young soldier of the H5th got up to
reply to the toast of his health, and
likened tho scaffold of Riel to those of
the rebels of 1837. Lieut. Des Georges
rebuked the soldier for introducing!
political questions. Young Douat, of
tho 05th, retorted that he was uttering
his personal opinions. Hon. Chas.
Champagne criticised the regiment of
Lieut, Des Georges in 1870, during
the Franco-German war. Mr. H. C,
St. Pierre justified the rebels in their
aotion, nud claimed thnt if Riel were
irrevocably doomed to be hanged, ten
thousand GSths would spring up as a
single man and deliver Kiel from the
jaws of death. Here Mr. Girouard,
M.P., desired that Mr. St. Pierre
Bhould go uo further with such remarks, and upon the majority of those

Chinese Emigration.
New York, Aug. 27.—John Russell
Young, ex-minister to China, in an interview yeBterday said thu emigration
question is not understood in America.
Immigration from China comes from
ono point alone. Canton is a city of
millions of people, in the centre of n
vast province and the most southern
port in China. It is within seven
hours by river of Hongkong, whioh iB
a British settlement, and as muoh under the British flag as is Cork or Liverpool. All traffic in the way of emigration to America comet from Hongkong, mainly through English houses.
There is no stipulation or treaty and
thero can be none to justify ub in asking tho Chinese to prevent Chinameii
from going from Canton to Hongkong,
and once there they are free from Chinese inlluenco. If the American govornment wishes to reach tho emigration question it will have to go to
Lord Salisbury and ask him to so instruct his government in Hongkong
thnt there may be no immigration,
The British governor-general at Hongkong, whom I know very well, and
whose guest I have beou, said he wan
perfectly willing, if tho American government wished it, to stop immigration, but I have, nit inst ructions. There
is nothing on record tn show that
China has- ever endeavored to uvtide
the treaty. On the contrary sho has
enforced it, even mora iitriitgeully
than nuy request of ours cnlls for. Thu
Chineso do not caro for emigration,
Tlmy could stop the whole thing to.
morrow? Thoy do not, of course, like
the idea of othor nationalities being
accepted iu America and they being
excluded. But that is a question of
pride on their part.

New York, Aug. 14.—Thc Sun
says: There aro many more silver dollars in the treasury vaults at New Orleans than can be stored theru either
conveniently or safely, und Secretary
Whitney hns ordered tho United States
steamship Swatara, now at the navy
yard, to proceed to New Orleans, take
ou board as much of tho silver as in
deemed advisable by the treasury
agents and transport it to Washington.
All day yesterday, and until it wns too
dnrk to see, tho sailors of the Swatara
woro at work taking out tho ship's ammunition, except such ns wub necessary, and taking in coal. By 7 o'clock

New York, Aug, 16.- The Sun's
leader Bays; Many of the cultivated
nnd eloquent writers nnd orators, who,
during tho last few weeks, have exalted
tho history and services of Genoral
Grant, havo fallen into the error of
representing him as the special saviour
of tho union in its conflict with the
pewers of slavery and secession. It is
a natural mistake that the hero of the
hour eclipses all other heroes, for his
exploits till tho imagination and gain
splendor and importance as they are
told; but it is now time to insist upon
the truth. This is, that the man who
above all othor meu saved the union
was Abraham Lincoln, had he not been
an incomparable politician, a keen
manager of men, Lincoln could hardly
hnvo brought tho war to a victorious
end. Moro dexterous or more successful politics never wero seen thnn that
by which he carried through congress
tho constitutional amendment prohibiting slavery, nor was there over keener
calculation of consequences than he
displayed iu the erect ion of Nevada ns
a State for (lie purposo of ratifying this
amendment and making it permanently,
effectual.

London Cable Letter.
London', Aug. 29.—It is almost certain that peaco botween England and
Russia on thu Afghan question is now
completely assured. The two governments nt present nre buBily engaged in
arranging tho last details of a mutual
understanding aud negotiations are
proceeding rapidly and harmoniously.
These final negotiations are now engrossing all tho time of Bnron DeStael,
Russian ambassador to England and in
consequence be hns been compelled to
forego liis customary vacation nnd re-
imiiu here during tho August heat
which long ago drove all rosiduut English statesmen out of town. An additional sensation is being attached to
(he Spanish-German difficulty by a
rumor giving Princo Bismarck's reason
for the seizure of the Caroline islands.
This rumor attributes to the chancellor
the determination to obtain possession
of Cuba and explains his conduct in
taking tho Caroline islands as wise to
Bocuro mi understanding between tho
United States and Germany regarding
tho Spanish outlying possession, as a
result of which Germany would permit
the United States tu secure the Phillt-
pine islands if the Washington government would consent to Germany's annexation of Cuba. It is strongly
maintained in somo quarters that Bismarck has for a long time had his eye
ou Cuba and hu has assured himself of
the support of certain western Amorican sugar interests iu this scheme.
Englishmen of moderate views scout
the idea thnt the United States will
ever permit nny German occupation uf
Cuba nnd affect to porceivo in this reported Binmnrukinn project, a design
of intrigue to involve America iu tho
European squabhlo. This story came
from Pnris whine it is extensively discussed, and tho Spanish colony iu the
French capital aro furiously indignant
ovor the whole thing. The fagblatt of
Berlin in referring to tho matter to-day
remarks that the beautiful ladies of
Cuba will soon be lovely subjects of
Emperor William. King Alfonso lias
beeu informed by telegraph of tho reported German occupation of Yap, tho
principal oue of the Caroline islands.
Ilo will return from Sau Ildufuuso to
Madrid on Monday to preside over a
special meeting of the Spanish cabinet
to consider thu Caroliuos affair.
It is stated that after tho imperial
mooting at Kromsior Inst Wednesday
tho l.V.nr and his family immediately
appeared unusually pleased over what
transpired. Tho conference between
M. DeGiurs, Russian foreign minister
nud Count Knlnoky, Austrian minister
of foreign nttuirs, lasted for hours, lt
is believed in this conference DeGicrs
secured Austria's interest in securing
Turkey's neutrality in tlio evont of
war between Russia nnd Englnud, nud
iu accordance with the decision arrived
at by Prince Bismarck during his conference with Count Knlnoky at Vur-
sen. It is .certain that during the
whole time of thu imperial conference
at Kremsier telegrams wero constantly
passing between the Schloss and Berlin.
The belief is growing among military and other frionds of Genoral Gordon that lio really escaped alivo from
Khartoum and escaped to tho equator.
So strong hns this fnith become that a
mission has been organized to search
for him.   The work of preparing this
mission for its enterprise is now almost
completed.
The German government is preparing for the approval of thu roichstag
bills for the construction uf several
new canals within its empire. One of
theso bills is for tho ship canal from
the Baltic soa to the German ocean,
with strong forts at each mouth and
at commanding points along tho route.
The work will cost nn enormous sum
of money, nnd tho water-way would
nevor bo able by any possible traffic
upon it to repay even interest on the
cost of construction.
Two ladies belonging to families of
rank iu Mezzevo in Epirus, European
Turkey, were some time ago abducted
by brigands from Epirus mountains.
The abductors demanded a ransom of
£20,000 for the return of each or either
captive. Thu families of the womon
havu just paid to tho agents of the
brigands §40,000, nud the ladies hnve
been safely restored to their homes.
They Bay thoy wore well nnd honorably
treated by their captors nnd inude as
cumfortablo during thoir stay in Epirus, as the circumstances of the robbers would permit.
The demand for the "Myrtlo Navy"
tobacco is still on the increase, and from
every quarter the firm who make it are
receiving unsolicited testimony of its
growth iu public favor. A gentleman
from ono of the mining islands of Luke
Huron writes, "Your 'Myrtle Navy' is
an invaluable solnco to the loaliness of
tho miner's life. 1 don't know how our.
men could get along without it. .If
thoir stock run out thoy would risk
swimming to tho mainland to replenish
it, heedless of danger, and I boliovo they
would cross the ice in winter ou the sumo
errand if it was not more than an inch
thick. No other tobacco will satisfy
them."

SPECIAL DESPATCHES.
London, Aug. 31.—The Marquis of
Hartington, who was minister of war in
the Gladstone government, delivered an
address at Hosendale, in wliich he urged
the extension of local self-government
so that parlinment might bo enabled to
give its attention solely to imperial legislation. No pnrty, ho snid, would ever
accede to 1'arnoli's demands, thc ultimate result of which would be to unite
till British political parties against Parnell for the preservation of the empire.
He was glad Parnell hnd publicly denned
his position und demands, and he thought
that now no English party would consent
to acquire or retain oi'.i :o by conceding
Pnraell's demands. If he persisted in
Ids. policy of obstruction means would
bo found by a practically united people
to oppose a firm veto on proposals that
were fatal to the integrity ami-prosperity
of thejcmplre.

A Dog that Understands.
There is a Newfoundland dog of the
historian's acquaintance, Lion by
name, who gives daily proof of his
comprehension of what is said to him.
A lady called on his mistress the other
day. During hor call Lion came in
rather slyly, lay down on tho parlor
carpet and wont asleep. The conversation run on, nnd the visitor said
finally:—
"What a handsome Newfoundland
you have!"
Lion opened ono eye. "Yes," said
his mistress "he is a very good dog,
and takes excellent enre of the children."
Lion opened thc other eye and waved his tail complacently to aud fro
alone tho carpet.
"When the baby goea out ho always
goes with her and I feel perfectly suro
then tlint no harm onn come to her,'1
his mistress went on.
Lion's tail thumped up and down
violently on the carpet.
"And ho is so gentle to them all,
and such a playmate nnd companion
to them, that wo would uot take a
thousand dollars for him."
Lion's tail now went up and down,
to and fro, round and round with
grent and undisguised glee,
"But," said his mistress, "Lion has
ono serious fault."
Total subsidence of Lion's tail, together with tho appearance of an expression of great concern on his face.
"He will como in hore with his
dirty feet and lie down on the carpet,
when I have told him time nnd again
that he muBii't do it."
Here Lion arose with an air of the
utmost dejection and humiliation and
slunk out of the room with his lately
exuberant tnil totally crestfallen.

Tito SlzM>rNoairs Ark.
The exact she of Noah's ark has not
been determined definitely, but according to Sir Isaao Newton's calculations,
based on his ostimalo of tho length i-f
a cubit in feot and inches, the historical barge must have been 515.62 feet
loug, 85.04 wido, aud 51.56 deop. The
measured tonnagu of tho ark was 18,-
2112. Thu Great Eastern was 680 feut
long, S3 feet wide, and 53 feot deep,
nnd she measured 28,003 tons. Although tho (iruat Eastern was not so
well proportioned ns the ark, she probably had doublo the carrying capacity
if her coal and machinery were left
out of her, becnuse she was made out
of iron, and thc urk wns n wooden
ship.
To tiik Rkscue.—"When all other
remedies fail" for Bowel Complaint,
Colic, Cramps, Dysentery, etc., "then
Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild Strawberry comes to the rescue," Thus writes

nnd adds thnt "its sales nre lnrge nnd

The Montreal Herald saya: There ia
more in thu matter of the Hon. Mr.
Baker's depart tiro from South Australia
for London on the subjeot of n mail
service to the Australian colonies than
at first sight appears.   Tliere iB in it
the very important element of   the
possibility of securing for Canada the
transport of the Australian mnll, or, at
least, a division of it with tho P. and
0. Co., who now carry it via the Suez
Canal.   This is the situation: tho Australian colonies between thom pay tho
Pacific Mail Steamship Co. an annual
subsidy of 9350,000 for carrying the
mails between certain Australian ports
and Sau Francisco.   The contract will
expire in November, and tho colonies
refuse to continue the subsidy unless
the United States government will join
in paying it.   The latter refuses to do
so, and the P.M.S.S. Co. are accordingly prepared to abandon the Bervico
at the beginning of November.   There
are threo ships nt prosont einployod,
twb of which, tho /calamiin and tho
Australia, will probnbly be for disposal
when the present contract terminates.
Of course, thore are several competitors for thia trade and nno company
has already despatched  nu ayetit to
New South Wales and New Zealand to
negotiate   witli   the   governments   of
those colonics.   If possible, this service
should be secured for Canada.   The
Australian mails cdu bo carried more
quickly via tbo Canadian Puoitic railroad thau by San Frnucisco, and tho
British government might ptobably be
induced to  avail  themselves of  the
route, if not entirely, at least in division with the.P. and 0. Cu.   This subsidy, together with thut uf the Australian colonies, would secure the trade
to Canada, lis competition from  San
FranoiEco would be out of the question.^  Besides the carriage of the mail
there is a good trade for the line and a
yearly increasing passenger traflic. But
it looks as if immediate action woro
necessary.    The agent who has gone
to Australia from the Oceanic Steamship Co.,  will.not, of courso, be able
to make much progress in his negotiations until the result of Mr. Baker's
visit to England  is known, and this
gentleman is still, on his wuy.   Beforo
the < present contract is ut nn end the
C.P.U. will he open from ocean to
oceun, and it is reasonable to suppose
that, other things being equal, a preference would be shown for a Canadian
route.

Mohammedan invasion.
: Washington; Aug. 24.—-Secretary
of State Bayard is in receipt of a dispatch frum Sierra Leone, giving accounts of the movements of an army
of 100,000 men in  the interior of
Africa,   The dispatch is dated July :
14th lust, and wns sent by U.S. Consul
Lewie.   Mr. Lewis says:
. "I have thu honor to bring to the
notice of the department of state tho
tuot   of   an  extraordinary  movement
uinoug the Mohammedans of the Nig-
ritian regions,  extending from Tim*
buctoo to the west const.   It appears
that a Mundingo, named Lamudu, of
extraordinary intelligence and energy,
conceived the idea that he was called
by Gad tn wage a war for the suppression of paganism, nnd also for the
purpose of opening the ronds tothe
coast, which in certain districts have
been for generations subjected to excessive blackmail and to the plundering of vagabond tribes.   During the
last five years he has collected an army
consisting of   foot and horse, about
100,000 men.   Wherever he goes, tho
Mohammedan youth .flock to his standard, anxious not only to secure the reward  in  the hereafter, promised to
those who fight for their religion, but
to carry oft'  the   rich   spoils which
these   expeditions    that   battle   for
the faith nro sure to win.   It ia said
that Lamudu's army is divided into
three portions.   One is operating noar
the head waters of the Niger.   This
portion recently drove certain French
troops from the gold regions of Bourse,
of which thoy had taken possession,
and are now besieging Bnmmaks, a
largo town on the Niger, occupied
about three yoars ago by the French,
who have erected fortifications thore,
Another portion of the army is operating iu the region east of Liberia, and
by suppressing  disturbing elements,
unfettering  trade and  introducing a
knowledge of religion and letters, is in
one sense opening.a way for nego immigrants of   intelligence and energy
from America to push out from the
African   American   republic   to  the
healthy regions of the interior.   Ih
another  sense  it  is forestalling tho
whole region for Mohammedanism and
making it difficult, if not impossible,
if indeed, it is desirable, to convert
that  country to  tho faith imported
from America by the immigrants.  The
third portion of the army is approaching tho coast a few miles northwest of
Sierra Leone.   It haa secured tho sub-
miassion, by force or by voluntary sur-
render, of all the tribes for 300 miles
back.  The largest and moat important
kingdom on this side of the Niger was
Soolima,  of  which  Tullnbn, a large
commercial city, was the capital.   For
the lut sixty years the Fulah Mohammedans have been trying by diplomacy
and arms to subdue this oity to their
faith, but it has always resisted both
diplomat and warrior.  Last year Lamudu's army in overwhelming numbers
surrounded it nnd called upon the king
to surrender and profess the faith of
Islam.   This he refused to do.   Tho
town was then invested, and after a
terrible siege of five months the king
assembled the royal family and the
principal chiefs in his powder house,
informed them that ho could hold out
no longer, as his resources were exhausted, but having for more thun 200
years belonged to the ruling element,
he wu determined for himself and
family to die rather than come under
Mohammedan rule.     He gave the
chiefs their choice, either to die with
him or to go out of the town and give
themselves up to tho enemy.    They
decided to die with him.   He then set
lire to the powder, and they were all
blown up.    This ended the Soolima
power,  which  for  more than seven
generations had influenced the trndo
nnd politics of  thoso extensivo districts and had commanded tho principal highway to tho coast.
The tallest chimney in the world, at
the Townsend Works, Pt. Dundas,
near Glasgow, is 454 feet in height.
Another monster flue, Hie second largest in the world, also found in Scot*
land, at St. Rollnx- near Glasgow, is
only 19 feet shorter. Both are circular and are constructed of brick aud
stone. Bt. Peter's at Homo is only
465 feet high.	
Obedience Without question-
in?.
"Hurrah? Hurrah? A anil in Jimmy Tinch'B bout? What a royal time
we'll have! Now, Madge, und Susie,
and Kit, be on time; we must be off in
an hour, sure."
'Hugh, Harry and Jack went away
to look after their fishing tucklo whilo
the little girls played on tho sandy
shoro. Jimmy 'finch's boat, tho largest sailboat anywhere about that part
of tho coast, lay a littlo distance out
ih tho water.
"Now, thon?" snid the boys, coming bnck, "we've got plenty of bait
and can fish a couple of hours oft'
Rocky Point beforo we shall have to
como hack."
But a great disappointment awaited
them.
"Papa has been horn sinco you
went away," said Madge, "aud he saya
we nro not to go in Jimmy's boat today. We may take n little bit of n
sail iu your boat if we all want to, but
thut is nil."
"What can be the reason?" broke
out   Hugh,   in   groat  nstonishment.
"Did ho sny why, Madge?"
"No."
"I saw him look at the clouds," said
Susie.
"1 suppose that's it; hu thinks
thero's going to be a storm. But I
don't think so. Thoso light clouds
don't mean anything. If ho had only
given us some sort of a reason for putting off our trip!"
■ "I think lie meant ub to obey without having a reason," said Madge.
Hugh fretted (ind fumed in grout
ill-humor.
"It's going to bo a splendid afternoon," he said.
"The clouds nre all blowing away,"
said Jack.
"I'm going to ask Jimmy,"* said
Hugh. "Here, Jimmy, is it going to
storm?"
"Nivir a bit, sir. It's tho illegant
day for u suil. It's out on tho bay
we'll be and round the Pint in no
timo at all at all."
"Hear what ho says," n.iid Hugh,
turning discontentedly tu the others.
"Papa ia over-careful, you soe. Of
course Jimmy knows ugreat deal more
about weather thnn he does. So lot's
go."
"Without leave?" uskod Madge, in
surprise.
"Why, I know he'd let us go if he
could hear what Jimmy says; so it will
do no harm. I'm old enough, I'm
sure, to havo something to say about
things, nnd I know, it's safe for us to
Tho others wanted to believe su.
All but Madge followed him to the
boat, although with rather hesitating
steps.
"Come on," cried Hugh, "Bee how
tho nun is breaking out. What nonsense it would bo to have our long
walk down hore for nothing!"
"Do give it up, Hugh," entreated
Madge; hut he only laughed at hor.
Madge turned her fnce homeward,
culling the little girls to follow her;
but they were glnd to listen to Hugh's
reasoning. Iu a few minutes Jimmy
Tinch hnd hoisted the anils nnd the
bout was skimming gracefully towards
the outlet of the little bay."
Once outside its shelter Hugh began
to feel rather less confidence in his
own judgment and in Jimmy's, They
hnd a botter view of the dark clouds
wliich were rolling up in the western
sky, and tho witter was much rougher
than he had expected to find it.
For a while the bout danced gaily
over the waves, and all enjoyed tho
exhilarating motion, but farther out
the bruezo became sharper. A sudden
gust seized the sails aud almost threw
the boat over, while a scream of terror arose from the little girls.
"Take care!" cried Hugh, in grout
alarm at observing that Jimmy mndo
uo effort at taking tn snil; for even tho
boy's inexperienced eye could see tlie
dangor they were in.
Jimmy gave a stupid laugh as the
boat leaned heavily to ono side, Hugh
gave hiin a sharp glance, and his heart
sank with dismay. He had not before
seen what his father's keener eye had
marked—that Jimmy was under tho
influence of liquor nnd utterly unlit
to undertnko tho management of u
bout. Believing that his boys would
obey his command, he had not thought
proper to speak of this to tho little
girls.
"Take iu that top-sail," suid Hugh,
almost angrily. "Don't you soe wo
shall go over in anothor minute?"
Jimmy made a feeble clutch at
rope, then reeled ob the boat made
another lurch and if Hugh had not
seized him would have fallen overboard. The next moment he waB in a
heavy sleep in the bottom of the boat.
"Take hold here, boys," said Hugh,
with a pale face, as ho called into play
his best knowledge of boating.
With trembling hands they did their
best, and were thon obliged tu commit
themselves to tho mercy of the storm,
which soon beat pitilessly down upon
them. For hours thoy wore driven
before it, but as night approached
Hugh observed with a most thankful
heart that it wai abating. Darkness
came on and he knew not where
thoy might be on tlie tossing waters.
The little girls criod to be taken home,
then cried for supper, when it was discovered that the lunch-basket, which
had heen handed to Jimmy to stow in
the boat, hnd been left behind,
Face to face through the long hours
of that night, with tho full realization
that his disobedience had brought his
brothers and sisters into this peril,
Hugh learned a lesion whioh he never
forgot. The whistling winds whispered it, and tho dark waters frowned
it up nt him as he gazed upon them,
wondering if the boatful of bright
young life was to go down in their
depths, and all because of his wrongdoing.
But the longed-for light of morning came, and Jimmy, sullen und
ashamed, but again in his right mind,
and with senses and powers sharpened
by the demand upon them, took command of tho boat and skilfully turned
it in what he knew to be the way humo.
"Say anything you please to me,
father," said Hugh in the voico of a
thoroughly humbled spirit as he saw
the marks of the night's siideriug on
his mother's gentle fnce. "I deserve
far more than any words can give mo."
"If you realize thut, my boy, I
need not sny much; you havo punished
yourself more severely than any one
else could punish you. Only try to
bear in mind, Hugh, thnt one of the
crying sins of this ngo is the lack of
reverence to parents, which the great
Lord solemnly lays down iu hiB law.
His gravest threats are uttered against
tho children of disobedience, and his
choicest promises aro to thoso who
honor alike their earthly nud their
heavenly parents,"—-Forioard.
