Why should not even the bluest
of Ontario Tories give three cheers
for Oliver Mowat at the present
time? Mr. Mowat never hit anybody half as hard as John Bright
p has been hitting English Tories for
nearly fifty years, yet we believe
many a good English Tory did give
three cheers for John Bright at the
Birmingham celebration, Mr. Afow-
iit's party politics are a matter of no
concern to The Presbyterian; but
Mr. Mowat ns a man, as a statesman, ns a distinguished jurist, us
premier of Ontario, may well bo put
before the young men of Canada as
an example of what industry, perseverance, integrity, pluck, and a clean
character all round can raise a mun
ta * * * What ho is he made
himself, and mude himself by those
very qualities that are not considered
of as much value now as they once
were. This is thu lesson we wish to
enforce on the young men of Canada
—integrity, industry, perseverance,
plodding, honor, combined with a
good manner and a "kind heart, are
the qualities that tell in the ond,—

The Gladstone administrations are
always successful in handling the
imperial finances, and the present
government, notwithstanding the legacy of petty wats left it by the
Beaconsfield administration, is no
exception-to the rule. In his lust
four years Beaconsfield had u deficit
of $36,650,000 white Gladstone in
the same period of time reports a
surplus of $7,750,000; notwithstanding that he met each year's expenditure hy each year's revenue
throughout. In four years Beaconsfield decreased the national debt by
$5-1,920,000, but in the corresponding period Gladstone decreased it by
$125,120,000; or in other words tlie
present government has decreased
the imperial charges on debt ao
count by $5,000,000 unutially forever, which means a reduction of
annunl taxes to that amount. Were
it not that the government felt compelled to relievo the Indian people
of the injustice forced upon them
by Beaconsfield, in taxing them for
the expenses of tho Afghanistan
war, the amount of debt liquidated
would have been $25,000,000 more
than it was. Gladstone's policy
tempered with justice bus been
marked with financial success. The
press gag laws removed and the
taxes of India relioved will redound
to the Libera) party's credit—Ottawa Free Press.
Sir John Macdonald, whatever
else may be said of him, haB uot
subjected himself to the reproach of
appointing to the bench, from party
motives, men who would do discredit
to the position. Weak appointments he hus sometimes boon obliged to make, and the choice of
material is becoming more and more
restricted. The desire of the leading members of the bar is naturally
to reach the highest honors of the
profession; but the disproportion
between lhe professional gains of
leading Cnmidi.ni counsel and tho
salaries of tho judges hus now become so great that the best men
cannot be induced to exchange the
emoluments of tho har for the higher
dignity of tho bench. The hit tuition
is one that iB full of evil. The
bench seems destii.ud to become tho
refuge of second aud even third
class lawyers, Recently, oilers of
judioiul appointments have been rejected by several loading members of
the bar in succession; nnd it is welt
understood that not one of tho
great lights of tho profession, what*
ever his wishes might be, could
afford to Accept such a salary us he
would be obliged to tako if he be
came a judge, Unless some change
be made, wo shall before long see
the superior courts in possession of
men greatly inferior in a knowledge
of the law to the counsel who habitually plead before them: appeals,
which have already become far
too numerous, will become still moro
frequent: and respect for judicial
decisions from which all certainty
and stability have departed will
suffer a serious decline. But for
one or two reasons, Mr. John O'Connor would not havo been made a
supremo court judge; his appointment is evidently owing either to
the i in possibility of finding a first-
rate man who would take the position—which may safely be assumed
—or to the supposed necessity of
occasion dly observing ecclesiastical
lines In the distribution of secular
patronage. Tho truth is this appointment is one of the bids for
Roman Catholic votes that both political parties nro constantly making. Already, it may he, thero were
weaker men on the bench than Mr,
O'Connor; but whether this bo so
or not, the appointment marks another step in a descent from whieh
nothing but evil can coma The
obvious remedy is to raise Vie salaries of the judges. Leading, counsel cannot afford to take bn the
bench one-half or one-third of what
they can make at the bar. The
difficulty is supposed to be with tbe
judges of the smaller provinces,
whose services, it is assumed,, would
be overpaid by salaries wliich would
command the best talent of the
Ontario bar, and against whom it
would be difficult to make a ditcrim-
ination. But unless the situation,
whieh is already bad, is to get worse,
some change must be made. It
would not be necessary to increase
the salaries to the highest amounts
whioh a few leading counsel can
make; the honor of the position, to
reaoh which iB an object of just
ambition, would count fir *mM>
thing, As things go at present, the
prizo is becoming of less value, and
the incentive to take it ts losing
some of its force.—The Week.
A "Queer" story.
There ii a cheap clothing dealer on
Kearny, near California, whose confidence in mankind has received asevore
setback. The other day an honest
looking countryman walkod into his
store and said;
"You remember that second-hand
overcoat I bought here for eight dollars yesterday ?"
"Never dakes pack anytings ven
vonce Bolt, my frent," said tho hand*
me-downer.
"Oh! that's all right. I just wanted
to say that I found this five hundred
dollar bill sewed in the lining. Perhaps the owner may call for it,"
"Of gorse he vill—he haB call already, my tear friondt," exclaimed the
dealer eagerly capturing the money,
"You ish vou honish mnn. Here I
gif you foefty tollnr nsh a revard. Dot
vil pe all right."
When the honeBt customer got around tho corner he murmured softly:
"I guess I'd better take this fifty nnd
skip up to Portland, before thnt sheeny
tumbles to that counterfeit. It's getting mighty hard to above the 'queer'
round these parts, and that's a fact."—-
San Francisco Post.
Love nnd Metaphysics.
'Do you really lovo me, Charlie.-*"'
naked Maude, plucking a daisy.
"Yea, dear, I love you now," replied
Charles, who had been reading metaphysics. "But love is either a vanity
and inflation of the heart, or a physical state which depends for its continuance upon a pra-requi8ito physical
bias."
"Oh!" exclaimed Maude.
"Yes," resumed Charlie; "and there
is no telling how long it will last."
"Why, what du you mean, Charlie?
I know mine will last forever."
"I will try and explain, dear. As
thought is produced by molecular
changes in the brain, so lovo arises
from molecular action in the Bensorium
and nerve-contres. Now everything
which excites and delights our perceptions may bo traced to nn infinitely
numerous complication in the atomic
constitution of what Haeckel calls tlie
albumen—compounds which compose
the plasma of the plastid. At this
moment my sense perceptions arc ox-
cited by your beauty, bo "
"Your love will last "
"As long as your beauty lasts."
"And my love "
"Ab long as my purse holds out."
"Oh, dear, I suppose you are right,
but I do wish you wouldn't bother me
with thoso horrid metaphysics."—Life.

The Modern Shakespeare.
"Last night, Andromeda, heard I
Vingardo and Beatrice coo!"
Coo, said'st thou, cavalier?"
"Coo, pretty carper, coo!"
"That hints of doves, Sir Sinister,
an' I be sworn there were some grosser
fowl more like that dowdy twain."
"Sith it were love they prattled of,
Bweet cackler, and doves be poets' symbols of that same, 'tis coo that dovetails with mo tide's intent. An' 'fore
the gods, Andromeda, there is a mushy
flavor to the word that much betikes
the matter to their speech."
' 'So, boy 1 That fits supremely well
me measure of Vingardo nnd this wan*
ton Marcia; and I will hold mine oar
to catch thy tell. Wag me tho tale,
Sir Sinus!"
"An'thou dost dog me to't, I will.
Just i' the (dooming spell, when ycBtor
saw me scale Marcia well, mid latticed
quiet, where tho woodbine folds its
dainty tendrils 'bout an nrbored grot',
I saw these silly folk in sweet commune. Thu sapling knight did aome*
liow serpentine her girdle's rim, and
whilo hor head did socket towards bis
neck his largest ear did overhang the
minx and lap up answer to his liplot's
lush."
"O, what n pose wore there, my
countryman! Now lay thu lies tho
lunatic did lap!"
"Why, nirl, the firat faint whisper
that befell was suoh as titled her his
'sweet white Bwnu,'"
"Please Providence, defend the
bird! Had ho said swine the rogue
would hint, at least, of closer kinship.
And then, Henrico?''
"Then, eager one, ho said she was
'his tiny toadlet, tripping upon his
heart with tinkling feet, each tender
toelet timing its tup with some transcendent tune.' "
"O, lord of lollipop! This doth out-
mellow mush. And then, trite tattler?"
"Thon sampled he her features,
maid, and quoth, 'Thy lips aro Para*
disian peaches, grown from some most
beauteous blossom wherefrom no beo
hath ever sipped tho luscious hydro*
mel that now doth lave me sense with
taste of Heaven/ "
"Ingyons and ipecac? Brought this
nn qualm?"
"Ojunm, quizzing queen ?Slio quaffed
the sap with luok of chick that chews a
sugarplum, and burrowing deeper
'noiith his neck's recess, did faintly
twitter of surpassing bliss, and wondered if some anqel i' the azure vault
yearned uot to swap conditions with
her."
"Enough, Henrico! This doth re-
vert me so to that soft season whon
wo first did woo, thnt if thou lunger
pmt'&t I'll think me yot again the same
soft gumdrop nnd thee tho olden caramel that'twas our wont to sweet each
othor with," '

'" Balnrday Morning, Oct. i, I8M.
A Had World.
Some years ago quite a little sensation was produced by certain revelations in connection with the mad
world, It had been suspected in
many quarters tbat the wulla of
many American mnd houses contained some people whoso lunacy
was more a wish on iho part of
their relatives than nn actual fact.
An enterptising young man connected with the Now York press
made up his mind to ascertain by
personal observation whether tliese
surmises were truo or not. His
objective point was tlio private
asylums. But a serious difficulty
In the way of personal inquiry
lay in the fact that ho could not
gain admission into these institutions. Determined to accomplish
his purpose, howevor, he managed
to havo himself committed to one
of theso places us u bona fide
lunatic. The necessary doctors'
certificates were procured without
much trouble, and ho found'himself shut up in the mad house,
surrounded by all the hideous
Bights and sounds peculiar to such
an institution. Having completed
his investigations he returned to the
world of reason and published
the result, which startled civilization. Some one in England is doing
a similar public service. He has
entered one of the English asylums.
The difficulties of gaining admission in bis case do not seem to havo
been at all serious. Two doctors
examined him very briefly and signed
the certificate of insanity, and he
was at once sent to the mad house!
What he saw there has not yet fully
transpired, as he is publishing a
statement only in pieces. There is
sufficient food for reflection, however, in tbe fact that it is very easy
to procure a commitment for insan
ity, and that herein lies a terrible
danger. Once within tbe walls of
a lunatic asylum, the person loses all
responsibility and identity ns a man.
If he protests that be is sane, the
protest goes as additional evidence
of his insanity; and no person, however sane, could bo shut up in ono
of tliese places, and submit to the
brutal treatment which we are told
of, without soon losing his mental
balance. It is obvious that there
are many circumstances under whicli
there might be utrotig inducements
to commit a sane person to the mad
house It is very often dcsii uble to
get rid of one's rivals, or of persons
whose foi tunes might be secured in
the event of their being deprived of
all legal standing. The mad house
presents an opportunity for the
accomplishment of such fiendish
|iur|>oses which has undoubtedly
beeu taken advantage of in many
instances. At tbe present moment
there are two cases in progress in
Canada which indicate that our own
country has been the scene of similnr outrages. A lndy has been confined for several years in a Montreal
asylum under the pretense of insanity, while it is claimed now that she
is perfectly sane, and always has
been sol She was committed by
relatives who have been fattening
ever since on the property which
fell to them through her disappear*
mice. The English investigator
. already refered to, after describing
the means by which he obtained
admission to the mud house, sums
up as follows: "If two ruse-Ily
hirelings had undertaken to im.
prison a stupid und helpless young
legatee, for the sake of liis money,
by drugging liim with Tndian hemp,
and suddenly bouncing a couple of
nervous medical-men out of their
habitual cautiousness and exactitude
of statement, the order of events
would have been—well, pretty much
what it actually was." While such
an outrage is possible, something
should be dono by oui legislators
to prevent it ever becoming an
actual fact. The bare possibility
is too horrible to contemplate for u
moment with calmness,
Sabbath Desecration.
We have already pointed ont several ways in which railway construction has injured this province, but
we have not referred to the moral
aspect of the question. And this is
by no means the least important,
for whatever effects the moral status
of A community affects also its material progress. There are few who
will deny that the laws end opinions
of the people of Canada are greatly
influenced and moulded by Christianity. The religion of the bible is
recognised throughout the statute
book, and blasphemy is made a
crime.    It is not too much to say
that this recognition of thu Christian religion and the authority of
the bible, bus much to do with our
prosperity and civilization. Those
who would find disposed to question
thin assertion are u very small minority. If it be true, then, that we
owe much of our prosperity as
a nation to tlie fact that we have
adopted Christianity as our national
religion, it Is of very great importance thnt that religion,should be
honored and defended under nll circumstances, The Christian religion
and practice teaches that the Sabbath day should be observed as a
day of rest and religious exercise.
This teaching cannot be disregarded
without disparagement to the nation,
al religion; and, hence, our national
laws provide a punishment for those
who vtolato the sanctity of tho
Sal-hath. But these laws seem to
be absolutely set at naught by the
railway contractor and those who
are nnder him. Not only do they
openly break tho Sabbath (and the
law of tlm Sabbath) themselves, but
they do that which tends to make
the people a nation of Sabbath
breakers. In this province Sabbath
desecration hits always been too
common. People who have been
brought up more strictly elsewhere
find themselves here beyond the restraints-of the society and associations lo whieh they have been accustomed, and they are apt to fall
into modes of life which under other
circumstances would have greatly
shocked their moral senses. Good
men, who perceived these things
and were impressed with the great
importance of preserving tlie moral
tone of the community, have striven
to counteract the influences which
were subverting our customs. They
hoped that the influx of population
aud the development of tlio country
would bring about changes for the
bettor. That hopo has not been
altogether realized. The railway
has thrust forward personal interests and personal gain in the face of
law and religion nud all moral considerations. Trains constantly run on
Sunday; train hands must work on
Sunday or stop working altogether;
and where actual construction is
uot going on, Sunday is made a day
for trading nnd preparation for
Monday's work. Thore is really no
Sunday at all on tho railway. The
hundreds of railway men who have
been accustomed to other tilings in
other lands find themselves here
confronted with Sunday work or no
work at all. If they refuse to
break tho laws of the land by
breaking the Sabbath, they are
asked to take tlieir wages and go—
their usefulness is gone. The majority of men, whoso consciences are
uot very aggressive, will throw aside
moral scruples and take the Sunday
work. Thus they receive un education which fits them for other aud
mote serious breaches of moral and
civil law—lessons whose tendency is
downward. There can be no excuse
for this. The railway contractor
must know that tho laws of the
land apply to him as much as they
apply to any other person in the
province. He must have known
that this would be the case when he
took tlie contract; and he must
have intended then to become a
Sabbath breaker and to teach men
so. It is a great misfortune that
he was ever permitted to inaugurate
such a system.* It is u pity that
the open and continual violation of
a good law should be permitted at
any time. The influence of all employers of labor should be exerted
in the direction of improving public
morals and respect for law, and not
iu the opposite direction. Mr. Onderdonk has a great deal to answer
for in this respect.

tho columns of a paper inspires confidence in the stability of the advertiser.

A New Coal Mine.— Tho st earner
Buzz left yesterday morning with Mr.
Harry Bolton (formerly overman of
the Chaao River mine), Jumes Mackey
and sovoral others for Campbell River,
near Willow Point, for tho purpose of
opening up a mine on tho property
belonging to Mr. Dupont and others.
The seam about to be opened iB situated five or six miles from the coast
and near Campbell River. This
ground haB boen prospected and several
fine outcrops have been discovered.
It ia now tho intention of the originnl
owners, with whom are now associated
several San Francisco capitalists, to
open tho seam and thoroughly test it.
If it proves satisfactory a railway dud
shipping facilities will be at once constructed. Willow Point is about 90
milos north of Nanaimo and 30 miles
above Comox, It is on tho Gulf Georgia immediately opposito Cnpo Mudgo.
This property is situated outside the
railway reserve.—Free Press.
Liktinu witu the FiNOEiis.—A correspondent of the Scientific. American
sends the following particulars respecting a curious experiment. Ho says:—
"Two persons stand on ench sido of a
fifth, who is seated in a ohair. The
four raise thoir hands (which aro clasped with the forefingers extended) as
high as possiblo over tlieir heads, at
the same time inhaling deeply. They
then simultaneously bow as low ns possiblo (always facing the sitter), bending tho body from tho hips, and swinging tho extended arms from tho shoulder t'll the hands touch the knees, at
tho same timo exhaling as strongly as
possiblo, these motions being repeated
three times together. Ab they riae
from the Inst position fur the third
timo, the extended forefingers are
placed under the knees nnd arms of
the sitter, and he is lifted high iu air
aa light ns a feather. In this way I
have seon four young school girls, under sixteen yenrs, lift a mnn of 180
pounds with no more apparent exertion than would be required to lift a
three pound weight. To one who
tries this oxporimont fur the first timo
the result is very surprising,"
The Umatilla,-—People have begun
to nsk why the American steamship
Umatilla, raised and cleansed and ready
for sea aftor an expenditure of about
$05,000, doos not take her departure.
The reason is simple enough. I The
Oregon Improvement Co., hor owners,
claim that Bhe is n total loss, and that
the English underwriters must pny
ovor the amount of tho insurance,
$305,000, and keep the ship. Tho underwriters decline to accept this view
of tlio matter. ''Instead of being a
total loss," they say, "your ship, with
an expenditure of $35,000 on top of
the $05,000 already opont, will be as
good ns new. Thore she is. Tako
her, and sail her or sink her; but our
liability will censo when all repairs nre

ment in raising thu ship ho hns saved

Bread for Hie World.
A great deal bns been said lately
about the over-stocked condition of
the wheat market, and that the supply is unusually large is attested by
the fact that prices are lower than
they have ovor heen before. England,
Franco, United States, Australia, India, and, indued, nil tho wheat-grow*
iug couutrioa, hnve hud n wonderfully
productivo year; and thu iii<>st natural
uiferenco to be drawn is that tho world
is producing too much wheat. But un
oxnminattifh of the returns of past
yenrs leads in to beliovo that such ia
not tlio case, nnd that tho stuff of life
ia never likely to become a drug on tlio
market.      Statistics  show   that   one
year's superabundance ia generally required to make up the next year's deficiency. In 1880 there was tho same
condition in tho wheat trade as now
exiBts. In thnt year the world's wheat
supply exceeded tho demand by 100,
000,000 IiiibIioIs, and prices uecmd*
iugly continued low until the small
crop qf 1881 waa reached. Il was
then realized thut though the wheat
supply of 1880 waa vory large, taken
in conjunction with the crop of 1881
it was very sennty. The crops of 1882
and 1883 were just as unequal ua those
of 1880-81; but when combined they
produced a full supply. It is stated
that with the exception of n few cargoes still ou the way from California
and Oregon to' Europe, all the wheat
in existence is the product of 1884.
And as the world has already commenced to consume this yenr's crop it
will be found, when combined with
next year's supply, to bave been none
too large,—Colonist.

A communication from John D.
Ronald, of Brusauls, ()'h%4 stating that
the order was received for tho steam
engine and he thought it would be the
wisest policy for the city to purchase
ono of the new styled engines, rather
than the one they had orderod. He
recommended one with more feet of
hose, throwing two streams instead of
ono, nml with patent Sinmeso twin
nozzles; nnd he offered to come out
hero nnd set up the engine, thereby
guaranteeing to put it in perfect working order, if the city would bear half
his.expenses.
Tho council hud somo discussion
over the advisability of accepting Mr,
Ronald's offer. Mr. Johnston thought
it would bo tho proper course to pursue. If any accident should happen
to the engine, nny part of the machinery become broken on its journey, he
would bo bound to put it in good working order. In other words his obligations to the purchaser would not cenae
short of tho satisfactory working of the
engine. Mr. Elliott thought the general impression and sentiment in the
community was that this fire Btcnmer
which tbo city was purchasing was of
an inferior make, a* on those grounds
somo were opposed to its purchase.
Tho Mayor said a local machinist felt
confident that from what bo knew of
theae fire steamers he could put it together so that it would work satisfactorily, Mr. Cunningham said since
some objected to thu purchase of it he
thought the safest courso to pursue
would bo to accept Mr. Ronald's offer,

The invasion of India.
A French ollicer, Captain Napoleon
Ney, who bns boen recently employed
on several important military missions,
has published a. remarkable eoniiiiuni-
eatiou on British and Russian rivalries in Central Asia. It contains n
curious account uf n conversation
wliich the writer hnd with the laic
General Skobcleff, who at that time
professed tn regard tho dillicit]ties attending a Kn&uau invasion of India
aa well - nigh maiirmnuutable. Iu
reply to tliu question whether tliu
RuBBians woro able and desired to invade India, Skobeleff answered that
lio would uut say anything relative tn
the political side of tho matter. His
personal opinion wns that thoro wns
no question of Central Asia involved,
btit simply a rogrettablo misunderstanding between England and Russia,
which he waB firmly persuaded would
one day cease. He could not believe
that two great European powers would
wago war for the sake of somo Asiatics.
Iu the meantime General Skobuleff
wus of opinion, from a military point
of view, that the invasion of India
would bo more diflicult than is generally believed. "In order to invade
Altlial, and having at niy disposal but
5,000 men, I had to get 20,000 camels
from Oroiiburgh, Khiva, Bokhara and
Mangishlak at groat oxponso and with
the uliuoat difficulty. In order to invade India wo should have, in my
opinion, 150,000 inun-00,000 for tho

An Interesting Discovery.
ADVANCE AND H EC E III IN OF LAKE SUPERIOR.
Professor Macoun writes to the Montreal Gazette : As many of the archie-
ologists ire at present in Montreal I am
tempted to bring before them, and the
publio an interesting discovery, made
a shorf time ago at the Pio river, on tbe
north shore of Lake Superior. While
the workmen were engaged In a rock
cutting on tho line of the' Canadian
Pacific Railway they came upon an instrument made out of beaten native
copper, nbout 18 inches long, with a
turn ut one end uf about 4 inches,
and this drawn out to a point hnd-curved inwards. When tbe workmen
had passed through the first portion of
the rock, they found the copper article
lying ou a ledge on the inner face of
the rock, and covered with 30 feet of
cluy and graved. They now entered
on the clay, and, on passing through it,
camo upon quantities of charred wood
in one spot and nu abundance of comminuted shells aud others in various
stages of decay. The shells are plati-
ftrbta, cyclas and limnma, nnd nre now
found in the river. Tho cluy was illu-
viuin, the lower pnrt of clay being indistinguishable from that of the rivor
bunks, while the gravel nt the top of
the deposit is tbe samo as that of Lake
Superior. Wood, either "charred or
otherwise, was quite common in the
lower part of the deposit,and was chiefly poplar.
Mr. Armstrong, the district engineer,
told mo that the copper instrument
wns found ninety feot nbovo the level
of the river, nnd, therefore, at least
that much above the level of Lake
Superior, Fivo feet above this, and
over 10 feet from the rock, the charred
wood wns fouiid, pnrt of which I picked out myself and now have in my possession. The rock cutting is 40 feet
deep, ia glaciated on the inner Bide,
and seems as fresh as if it had been
done yesterday.
A careful examination of the neighborhood showed that at one time this
mass of rock had been nn island in a
bay of Lake Superior. Tho Indians of
that period ran just ns they do now,
into the sheltered cove, under the high
rock to cook their fish. While there,
the copper tool was laid down and forgotten, Yenrs elapse and again thu
Indians ure there, but this time the remains of their tire only nre left. Ages
pass, nnd 25 feet uf alluvium, gravel and
sand an: laid down, and Lake Superior
stands at least 120 feet above its present level, thu proofs of which are Been
both here and at other points on the
lako in the terraced slopes that face
the river or lake.
Again, in the slow lapse of time, the
lake commences to recede, and man,
who saw it advance, looks upon its recession, and can now say how many
years hnvo come and gone since then 1
To me, who have spent years in looking upon the broad expanse of our
lakes nud plains, and in watching the
changing habits of the Indians, the
facts naturally produce tho above conclusions ; but whether the conclusions
are correct or not the fact remains the
samo—man was an inhabitant of Lake
Superior when it stood at least 00 feet
abovo its present level, after that it
arose 30 feet higher, aud then receded
to its present level. Who amongst us
can tell the cause of these changea,and
the length of time necessary to produce them ?

THE  SITUATION   DESPERATE.
July 31—The seige haa been very
close. Arab bullets aro falling into
the palace from all Bides. Food is approaching a price nt which it cannot
be available. Since our last dispatches
all hope of relief from tho English
government is gone. Wo cau only depend on our steamers. It ia impossible
to cut through with the number of
women -and children. One Arab cavalryman is sufficient to frighten and put
to liors de combat 200 of our men. The
day Saati was killed eight rebels
charged 200 of our men, armed with
rifles, and dispersed them. The only
men we are able to depend on are negroes.
July 29—Mehemot Alt's action yeBterday waB very successful. Five armored steamers cleared thirteen forts,
and were engaged fur eight hours under a terrific firo. Tho forts were disabled, their guns dismounted aud the
enemy were driven out, Our loss
was only throe killed and thirteen
wounded. Gordon will soon send two
steamers ton arils Seiincr. They will
try to recapture tlie steamers taken
from Sal eh Bey.   Gordon is well.
Mr. C. E. Higgles, Buamsville, writes:
"A customer who tried a bottle of Northrop, k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery

European Affairs.
Nkw York, Sept. 28.-Morniug papers contain tlie following interesting
cable specials from European capitals:
it*       THE CROWNED HEADS.
The emperors and kings are not much
better off than tlie ministers. Tho king
of Spain ia now generally believed to be
stricken with an incurable disease, and
among the combinations plotted by busy
brains are the reinstatement of the chaste
Isabella, or the betrothal of Alfonso's
daughter to the son of Don Carlos, and a
regency till their marriage. The German emperor, who is so exhausted as
scarcely to be able to move out of his saloon or carriage, waB compelled to witness the army monoevers in Germany on
tho third day from a carriage instead of
on horseback. The chief reason of his
constant appearance iii public is his morbid jealousy of his son, to whom lie
grudges the smallest share of imperial
honors. The Russian Czar displays
great partiality for sporting iu Poland.
He ordered tho construction of a shooting-box there, and hunted up a Polish

German journalists rait against the violence of the English action and the pretences of "pious Gladstone," as they'sarcastically style the premier, as Imiitly as
the most irresponsible journals of the
Paris boulevards. The order suspending
payments to the sinking fund of Egypt
continues to be the paramount sensation
in tlio political world. England is standing alone against the continental powers
and the clamors of hor bondholders.
Liberal papers are urging Gladstone to
remain firm, but tite Tones profess to
have discovered signs that the government is weakening, and are prepared to
howl in derision, Gladstone returned to
JIawarden yesterday from his Scotch
tour, which was a continuous series of
triumphs. He was fatigued to-day, but
expressed himself delighted with Iub
visit, and confident that the house of
lords would recede from its hostility to
the franchise bill. Lord Salisbury, tory
leader of tho house of lords, will begin a
campaign of stump speeches, etc., as an
antidote to Gladstone's trip, next Wednesday, His probable reception in Sterling county is foreshadowed by an occurrence to-day at Falkirk. There waB a
largo demonstration iu that oity In favor
of the franchise bill. Tho principal feature of the procession waB a life-size
effigy of the Marquis of Salisbury, enclosed in a wooden cage. Across Main
street at Falkirk a rope was stretched,
and from it hung, by the neck, another
stuffed figure, representing the tory leader in the act of swallowing a huge leek,
IHE COST OF ROYALTY.        •   '
It is new settled that parliament Is to
bo asked at the next session to vote an
allowance to Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward, eldest sou of the Prince of
Wales, of £.10,000 a year. The argument is that as Prince Edward will bo of
ago at his next birthday he should be
enabled to maintain his rank as future
Prinoe of Wales. Tho radicals suggest
that lie should bo satisfied to wait for
dead men's shoes, as othor eldest sons
have to do. They intend to organize a
vigorous opposition to the proposed
grant, and this may complicate the situ-
tion regarding the franchise bill.
Even -the most faithful GUdstouiati
organs hardly attempt to deny that the
Boers have flagrantly broken thoir tr at-
ies, insulted the British flag, killed Ku-
flish oflicers and enslaved Knglish allies,

disagreement with two of his colleagues

of the interior, who has himsolf a sharp
eye ou the premiership.

NEWS FROM UL PARTS OF THE WORLB.
New York, Sept.  17. -Tho pipes of
the New York Steam Heating Company
supply the building No, 191, Broadway,
at tho corner of Boy street, with heat
and {lower. For a distance of ten feet
the pipes are exposed whore they run
under nn iron stoop into the cellar. Tho
floor of the basement is occupied by tho
Brooklyn Fire Insurance Company. At
2 o'clock yesterday afternoon whilo the
street was crowded with pedestrians n
hissing noise was heard and tho next moment a volume of steam roso in tlio air.
One of the stop-cocks had been blown off
by the unusual high pressure. The clerks
of the insurance company rushed out
into the street hntlcss nnd tho pedestrians scattered in overy direction, horses
reared and became terrified. Then a
loud report was heard nml the building
was shaken. Everything was confusion,
-md the occupant* thinking it wna au
earthquake, deserted their desks and lied
for safety, An immense volume of water
und steam, like a picture of one of the
geysers iu Iceland, rose into tin; air to
tho height of forty feet, while smaller
geysers spurted from the open spaces iu
the iron stoop. Fortunately no one was
on the stairway at the timo of the ex-
filosion. It is more than likely that the
orce of the spouting steam would have
carried everything before it, Tho grand
sight attracted thousands to the Boot,
and for over an hour traffic was blocked.
For a time excitement and terror reigned
supreme, but when the frightened people saw that the phenomenon was attended by no serious results they became calm and after a time visited the
spot and gazed upon tho steam. "The
necessary repairs wore made before
night.
Cairo, Sept. 18.—The khedive, Nubar
Pasha, and Sir Evelyn Baring have ro-
ceived identical cipher despatches from
Genoral Gordon, dated Khartoum, August 20. They read: "I am awaiting
British forces iu order to evacuate the
Egyptian garrisons, Scud me Zehehr.
Pay lum a yearly salary of £8,000. I
shall surrender Soudan to the Sultan
directly 20,000 Turkish troops arrive.
If the rebels kill tho Egyptians, you are
answerable for the blood shed. I ro-
(iiiire £300,000 to pay my soldiers, iny
daily expenses being £1,500. Within a
few days I shall take Berber, where I
havo sent Col. Stewart, Col. Powor, and
the French consul with troops and Bash!
Bazonks, who after staying a fortnight
will burn the town and return to Khartoum. Col. Stewart will then go to the
Equator via Itongolu to bring garrisons
thence. I disbelieve the report that the
Mahdi is coming. I hope the Soudanese
will kill him. If tho Turkish troops
arrive they should como by Doligola and
Kassala. You .should give them £300,-
000," The 2%ews gives .tliis version of
Gordon's letters; Gen, Gordon asks England to send Turkish troops to occupy
the Soudan and to remit £250,000. The
alternative proposed by Gordon was to
make Zcbehr king of the Soudan, with
a salary of §3,000, tho Soudan being
held as a fief of Egypt. This being
accomplished Gen. Gordon would return
to England.
London, Sept. 10.—Stanley, tho African explorer, delivered au address to-day
before a large meeting of influential citizens upon the Congo country, its past
history, its preseut developments, and
its future commercial prospects. The
address waa received with prolonged
applause. Stanley described at considerable length the capacities of the country and tho willingness of the poople for
free trade with all nations. Ho characterized the colonial policy of the Portuguese as detrimental nml constrictive.
He said if the claims of the Portuguese
government were allowed by Europe all
enterprise iu Congo will he arrested.
Portuguese civilization was like a withered tree beating no fruit. Commerce
could not bo extended into a new bom
region like the Congo Kiver basin, unless
it were relieved of all fear of that dread
Portuguese tariff. Portugal does not
undoistand the art of colonizing. Hon.
Samuel Morloy, M. P., iu moving a vote
of thanks to Mr. Stanley, remarked that
the English government was distinctly
pledged to consult parliament before
the treaty with Portugal was ratified.
Ottawa. Sopt. 27.—After five days'
argument before the supreme court the
license caso was submitted this nfternoon. The judges announced that they

author.
Loniion, Sept. 29.—A special to the
Time a from Vienna assorts that the cabinet of Great Britain has informed the
powers that in its opinion the suspension
of tho sinking fund by the Egyptian
government is justifiable ill the present
condition of its finances,
London, Sept. 29.—-Hat-court, secretary of the homo department, has written to the explosive company urging the
necessity of having their dynamite depots strictly guarded. The company
state th«t to comply with bis request
would involvo an expenditure of £125,.
000, and render their competition with
American and German dynamite manufacturers impossible. The sale of the
latter is practically uncontrolled, whilo
the police in England control the sale of
native dynamite. Tlio company state
that foreign dynamite has been used iu
nearly all the recent outrages in England.
The company suggests to Harcourt that
the government should levy a duty on
foreign-made dynamite, nnd thus enable
the British manufacturers to provide a
safeguard for their premises and yot
realize a profit.
Cairo, Sept. 30.—Tho Nile is rising.
Tho inhabitants of Kassala are not inclined to save the place unless transportation for their property is provided for.
That would require 30,000 cnmels, nnd
the government has only 4,000. It is
believed the enrnvnu would sutler from
robbers unless protected by troops.

the drydock were lnid before tho executive to-day. Sir Hector Langevin snvB

age, has been a terrible sufferer this
winter from rheumatism, being for weeks
confined to her bed, with limbs drawn
up, which could not l>o straightened, and
suffering great pain in every joint of
limbs, arms and shoulders. The best of

wore advised to try Dr, Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, wliich we did, and the benefit
was at once npparentj aftor using two
bottles the pain left, her limbs assumed
their natural shape, and hi two weeks
she was as well as over. It has not returned,
"Molly, I wish yuu would bo a better little girl," Baid an Austin father to

AliiiiBLE STORY.
(Coutimn-J.)
"Match!" said tlio girl, coloring
violently.
She had, indeed, understood woll
enough that Harry was behind all Her
mother's anxioua insinuations, her
promises and ontroaties; but sho had
been confident in lior power to
defeat Mrs. John by aid of her own
confused statements, always capable of
bearing two meanings. This word
"match," however, was one upon
which there could be no confusion,
and she waB immediately driven to
bay. She. drew herself away from
the tender attitude in which sho had
been standing.
"I never thought," alio said, ''that
this was a thing that could bo discussed between us," with all tho unreasonable indignation of a high-handed
girl, determined to crush all attempts
to influence hor on tho spot.
But Mrs. John, though alio was conscious she could not stand nguinst
Hester, was too suro that sho was
right, and too deeply convinced of the
importance of this great question to
give in, as she usually did.
"Oh, why should it not be discussed
between ub?" sho said. "Is there any
one so much interested aa I am? I
have heard people aay it was a mother's
duty. And, Hester, abroad, whero wo
used to live, I Bhould have settled it
altogether; you would never have beon
consulted. I am suro I don't know
tliat it is not the bost way."
"It iB a way that could nover have
been taken with me," Hester said.
Sha walked round to her own side of
the table with a very stately aspect,
aud sat down, and made a pretence of
resuming her breakfast, but her hand
trembled with excitement as she took
up her cup. "It may be quito true
what you Bay, that you are interested,
mother. I suppose so. People consider a girl a piece of goods to be sold
and disposed of."
"Oh, Hester, have 1 ever thought
so? I have been wanting in my duty,"
cried Mrs. John. "I havo never tried
to put yoo forward, to get you invitations, to have you seen and admired,
as othor people do. You are bo proud
and so fanciful that I have never dared
to do it, And when there comes one,
without ever being invited, or thought
of, or supposed possible-—"
It seemed to Hester that the burning blush which she felt go all over
her waB capable of bursting into flame.
It was not the shy shame facednes$-
with which every girl contemplates
the aubject on its first introduction,
but bitter and scorching shame.
"Invited—thought of; mother!" sho
cried, in a voice of girlish thunder;
"ia it possible that you could evor
think of scheming—match-making—
for me I"
lio capitals could represent the fervor of her indignation. Sho was entirely unconscious of the arrogance of
self-opinion that was in all she aaid.
For me. Tliat a man should be invited into her presence with that
thought, that Bhe should be put forward, taken into society, in order to
be seen with that view! Heaven and
earth! was it possible that a woman
should avow such possibilities and yet
live?
"When I tell you that I never did
it, Hester! though I know it waa my
duty," Mrs. John cried, with tears.
Never was a woman punished more
unjuBtly. She turned, like the-proverbial worm, at the supreme itiappro-
priateness of this judgment against
her, and a sudden impulse of anger
sustained the gentle little woman. "I
know it waa my duty," she cried, "for
who is to care for you, to see that you
are settled in life, but me? But I was
afraid to do it. I was obliged to leavo
it-to Providence. I just aaid to myself, it is no use. Hestor would nover
be guided by me. I must leavo it—to
Providence.
It did not appear that Mra. John
had much opinion of Providence in
such matters, for sho announced thia
with a voice of despair. Then, taking
courage a little, she Baid, with insinuating gentleness:
"I was just the same when I was a;
girl. I could not endure to hear about
settlements and things. It was all
love I thought of, my darling. I waB
Hkffyou—all love."
"Oh, mother!" cried Hester, jumping to her feet. Thia was more intolerable than tlie other. Her face flamed
anew with the suggestion that it waa
"all love." "For Heaven's sake, don't
say any moro about it, unless you want
to drive me out of my senses," ahe Baid.
Mrs. John stopped crying, Bhe was
so astonished, and gazed with open
mouth and eyea. She had thought
thia last tender touch would bo irresistible, that the child would fall into her
arms, and porhaps breathe forth the
sweetest secret aspiration of her heart;
perhaps own to hor that dark oyeB and
a muBtache had been her dream instead of Harry's fairness; or that a
melting voice or a genius for poetry
were absolute requirements of her
hero. With all these fancies sho would
havo so tenderly sympathized. Sho
would have liked to discuss everything;
to point out that, after all, a fair complexion waa very nice, and a genius
for poetry not profitable. Sho remembered what occupation and delight
these same subjects had afforded heraelf in the interval before John Vernon had proposed to her. She heraelf had dreamed of a troubadour, a
lonely being with a guitar, with long
hair and misfortunes; and John Vernon had none of those attractions.
She was talked over by hor mother
and sister, and made to see that the
bank and the White House wero far
better. Hester, perhaps, would have
boen more difficult, but yet she had
felt that, confidence once established,
thu sweetness of tliese discussions
would have been unspeakable. When
ahe had got over her astonishment she
sank back in a despair whioh was not
unmingled with resentment. Had it
oome to that, that nothing a mother
could say would please a child nowadays—neither tho attraction of a
great match nor the tenderness of
love?
This was how the great question of
a young woman's life was first revealed
to Hester. It was not, to be aure, the
last word. That would come when
she was placed face to face with the
aspirant for her favor, and have to decide, so to apeak, upon the future of
two Uvea. But to say "No," to Harry
would not have oxcited and confused
her being, like this previous encounter
with all the other powers and influences whioh were concerned, or which
wen considered to be concerned, in
her fate.:
mind.   Sho belonged to a little com- \
munity wliich thought a groat deal of
itself, yot  had  no foundation for so
doing; but, strangely onough, though
sho saw through tho fallacy of its general pretensions, yot aho kept its tradition in hev own person and hold hor
head abovo the ordinary world, in unconscious imitation of tho neighbors
whom she know to have no right to
do ao.   Sho kept the spirit of tho Ver-
nons, though she scorned them and
thought them a miserable collection of
ungrateful   dependents   and genteel
beggars—loss honorablo than the real
beggars who said   "thank you," at
least.   And sho had no way of correcting tho unfortunate estimate of
the world aho had formed from thia
group, excopt through tho moana of
Catherine Vernon and the society in
hor house, of wliich, at long intervals
and on a doubtful footing, which sol
all her prido in anna and brought out
overy resentful faculty, she and her
mother formed a part.   If the Ver-
non-llidgways and Mr. Mildmay Vernon wero bitterly critical of Catherine, missing no opportunity to snarl at
the hand that fed them, Catherine, on
her part, wiib so entirely undeceived in
respect  to  them, and   treated thom
with «uch  a cynical indulgence and
smiling contempt, as if nothing save
ingratitude and malice woro to bo expected  from  humanity, that Hester
had found uo relief on that side from
hot- painful thoughts.   Sho waa so con-
Boious in her own person of meanings
more high and impulses moro noble,
that the scorn  with which she contemplated  the peoplo about her was
almost inevitable.   And whon, deeply
against her will, and always with au
uneasy consciousness that hor mother's
pleasure iu tho invitations and excitement about going was childish and undignified, Hester found herself iu a
corner of the Grange drawing-room,
her pride, her scornful indignation and
high contempt of society, grew and
increased.     Her poor little mother,
standing patiently, amilim* at all who
would smile at her, pleased with the
littlo recognition given her as "one of
tho poor ladies at the Vernonry," and
quito content to  remain  there for
liours for the suko of two minutes'
banal conversation now and then, to
lie  overlooked  at supper, and taken
compassion ou by n disengaged curate,
or picked up by somo man who had
already brought baok a more important
guest, made Hester furious aud miserable by her complacency.   Hester herself wns ono of Bomo half-dozen girls
in   white muslin who kept a wistful
eye  upon the curate in the hopo of
being taken away to tho supper-room
down stairs, from which E»uch a sound
of talk and laughter camo up to tho
forlorn ones loft above.   But no curate, howover urgent, ever persuaded
Hester  to go  down, to stand at the
tail of the company and consume the
good things on Catherine's table.   She
saw it all from that point of view which
takes the glittor off the brightest surface.   Why did  those poor girls in
white muslin, uot  being compelled,
liko Hestor, coutinuo to go?   There
were two sisters, who would chatter
together, pretending to be very merry,
and  point out to each other the pictures or aome new piece of furniture,
and say that Misa Vernon had such
taste.   Thoy wore alwaya of the number of thoso who wero forgotten at
supper, who wero aont down, after the
others camo  up-stairs, with careless
little apologies.    Why did they come?
But  Hester waa not of a temper to
chatter or to look at the pictures, or
tu make the best of tho occasion. She
stood in the corner behind her mother,
and made it quite clear that she was
not "enjoying herself."   Sbo took no
interest iu tlio pieces that woro performed on tho piano or the songs that
were sung, and even rejected the overtures of her companions in misfortune
to point out to her the "very interesting photographs" which covored one
table.   Some of the older ladies who
talked  to  her mother made mutters
worse by compassionately remarking
that "the  poor girl" waa evidently
"terribly shy."    But, otherwise, nobody took any notico of Hestor; tho
other people met each other at other
houses, had Borne took pnrt in the other
amusements which were going on, and
knew what to say to each other; but
Hester did not know what to say. Ed
ward Vernon, her early acquaintance,
whom she would still often meet in
the morning, and between whom and
Hester there existed a sort uf half-and-
half alliance unlike her relations with
any one else, took no opon notice of
her, but would sometimes cast a glance
at her as he passed, confidential and
Bocret.   "How are you getting (in?" ho
would Bay; and when Hester answered,
"Not at nll," would shrug his shoulders and elevate his eyebrows and say,
"Nor I," under his breath.   But if ho
did not "get on," his manner of non-
enjoyment was at least very different
from Hester's.    Ho waa, as it were,
Catherino Vernon's Bon nnd reproson-!
tativo; he was the temporary master of
tho house.    Everybody smiled upon
him, deferred  to him, consulted his
wishes.    Thus, even Edward, though
she regarded him with different eyes
frum tho others, holpod to givo a greater certainty to Hester's  opinion on
the subject of society.   Even he was
false horo—-protending to dislike what
ho had no reason to dislike, and, what
was porhaps  worse, leaving  hor  to
stand  there neglected whom ho was
willing onough to talk with whon ho
found hernlone.
Hester felt—with hor head raised,
her nostrils expanded, a quiver of high
indignation mi her lip—that aho herself would never suiter any one to
stand thus neglected in any room of
hers. Those women in their diamonds,
who swept down-stairs whilo her mother stood and looked ou wistfully,
should not bu tho first in her housu.
She would not laugh and say "One of
tho Vernonry," as Catherine permitted herself to do. It seemed to Heater that the poor and tho small would
be the first whom sbo would think of
and amuse and make hnppy. Thoy
should have tho best nf everything,
they who had not the best uf anything
in life. Society (she thought, always
in that cornor, where thoro was full
time to make theories, and the keen
pricK of present humiliation to give
animation to them) Bhould bo a fino
compensation to thoBc who were not
so happy ns tho others. A true hostess should lay horself uut to make up
to thom, for that one genial moment,
for the absence of beauty and brightness in their lives. It should be all
fur them—the music, and the wit, and
tho happy discourse. Those who lived
in tine houses, who had everything
that wealth could give, should stand
aside and give place to tho less happy.
Thore should bo no oue neglected.
The girl whom no une noticed stood
apart and invented her high magnanimous court where there should be no
respeot of persons.
