current Events and Opinions,
The opinion of the business men
of the cities, and of the people generally, concerning the neV arrangements with the O.P.R. may, we
think, be easily und briefly stated.
No one pretends to any degree of
enthusiasm over the prospect of
their giving more money to tht!
road, or of releasing any security
held for any of the money already
advanced by way of loaa We
would all of us have been better
pleased if the contract had been
carried out on the conditions of
1831; if the loan of last session had
not been needed; and if the present
crisis had not arisen, requiring the
assumption of fresh responsibilities
by the country.' All of- us freely
admit a certain disappointment in
our expectations regarding the apparent cost of the road. And out
of these regrets and disappointments
the opposition have formed suoh
polioy as they possess, that is,
policy of criticism and cavil which
does them no good, because they
have no acceptable alternative policy,
and does the country harm, because
it is an exaggerated representation
of the facts of the case. The exaggeration is not unnatural, and
under ordinary circumstances the
public might pardon it. But there
is an element of deliberate malice
and untruth in the exaggeration
which leads the public to condemn
without hesitation those who are
guilty, and to support with somo
degree of sympathy those who are
its victims.—Toronto Mail
The British government now has,
or soon will have, its own railroad
across the American continent, and
with this great work it has a new
and great opportunity. Settlement
of the inland territories of British
Columbia has not been practicable
in the past, but this national railroad will make it an easy matter.
Our dispatches report that a rate of
j}25 for immigrants will be mode
from British ports to any point on
the line of the Canadian Pacific,
and if this is true the country must rapidly till up. Whilo the
British Columbia territories are not
equal to the American middle-western states, they are not without
many advantages and are capable
Of sustaining an enormous population. England now has a chanco of
adding to the value of her American
possessions, and at the samo time
of relieving her overpopulated districts. And she cannot certainly
have tho slightest excuse from this
time on of sending her imprudent
nnd helpless classes to the United
States, as she has done in the past
in violation of all good neighborship
and even of international decency.
The vacant lands of British Columbia afford a fine field for the swarms
of poor Irish people who are all but
starving in their present wretched
districts. It iB altogether likely
that the Canadian Pacifio will become an active competitor for the
transcontinental trade not only of
British Oolumbia but of the United
States. It will be able to make a
strong fight for this trade, and there
are indications that this will be its
policy. Transportation is a matter
of business, in which national or
other sentiment cuts no figure; and
if the Canadian Pacifio oft'ers sufficient inducements it will get a large
share of American business.—Port-
limi Oregonian.
The church of England in Synod
assembled hoa to deplore a marked
fulling off in her revenues, which
seems to betoken a corresponding
failure of zeal. She probably always
finds it more difficult than do other
churches to collect voluntary contributions, because her people, if
they are emigrants from England,
have always been accustomed la a
church paid by the State. But this
will not account for the present do-
cteuse. Intestine divisions most
likely are, in part at least, the
cause, Most of the bishops and a
gret,t part of the clergy are high
church, and are daily moving in
that direction, while the laity, who
hold the purse, are for the most
part low churoh, or at all events Op
posed to anything which in their
opinion tends to the revival of
priestly rule, The laity being unorganised, having no very definite
views and being, powerless in tlio
synod, where they are outvoted by
the compact body of clergy in combination with a few high churoh laymen,'fall into a state of passive disaffection nnd withhold subscriptions
which they think, not without rea;
son, may be applied to the propagation of sentiments at variance with
their own, and to the aggrandizement of a power whioh they regard
with mistrust. Nor is it easy to
see how an end can be put to tliis
Jfor §ale ot fo gtnt.

conflict, which, under cover of what
Chatham called the "Catholic Prayer
Book and Cnlvinistic Article," has
been going on through the whole
course of Anglican history. It is
attachment to the Prayer Book that
maihly holds the Church of England
together, and probably this' will continue to hold her together, if her
clergy will be moderate in their pretensions and not force upon, the
laity issues which an educated layman, if they are forced upon Vim,
can decide only in one way.. Besides the Prayer Book, however, the
Church of England has her venerable antiquity, her dignity, and with;
them a great measure of spiritual
freedom. She is praotically' the
home of men, numerous in tliese
times, who. desire to sustain their
spiritual life and to enjoj tht; comforts of a social religion without
hnving irrational and immoral dogmas pressed upon their consciences
or being forced to play a part in any
organized hypoerieies. Liberty and
immunity of the laity from ecclesl
astical interference with conscience
are perhaps not characteristics of
which clergymen of any church are
inclined specially to prize; yet, in
the present state of tho theological
world, they are practically of no
small value. They may bo combined with any amount of activity on
the part of the clergy in religious
ministrations and good works. At
all events, we are met by the strong
economic fact: the reactionary
movement among the clergy haa
been attended by a falling off in the
revenues of the church. To talk
about a return to the system of
tithes is utterly hopeless. — The.

Almost ft Fatal Mistake.
In an Arkansaw town several nights
ago, a mob, lead by a desperate mail,
marched to the jail, dragged a murderer from a cell and hurried with him
to the outskirts of tho town. Bach
man wore un expression of determination—features hardened with awful resolve. The prisoner attempted to
speak, to beg for hia life, but burly
hand's closed around hia throat and the
prayer he would have uttered wont out
in an articulate gurgle.
When tho infuriated men reaohed a
large oak they halted. One of them
threw a rope over a limb.
•'Gentlemen," suid tho prisoner,
"please give mo a chance to saya
word."
"fie quick about it," some .one
shouted.
"Gentlemen, I admit that the evidence is against me, but us truly as we
stand here, I killed lhat man in self-
defense,"    .*■*>. ■*•*;■   . -,*»
"Killed What man f" was asked.
"Bill Bottleford."
"Say, you ain't tho man that killed
Bottleford aro you V
"Yes, unfortunately, I am the
man."
"Men," shouted the leader," we
have come within one of making a terrible mistake," Then turning tothe
prisoner, the leader added: "We
thought, sir, that you wore the man
that stole Nat Boyd's fish-trap. Hop
down often the box. You are free.''-—
Arkansaw Traveller.

Britain's Great Guns,
The Woolwich correspondent of the
London News writes. The new guns
which have been designed to maintain
the naval supremacy of Great Britain
are in an advanced state, but they have
to undergo a course of. experiments to
settle the rnnpe table and other particulars, and it will probably be the
beginning of next year before they are
ready for sea. This will, however, be
earlier than the ships which are to
carry them can be completed, and there
will be ample time available for a full
and leisurely study of their require-
ments and capabilities. The first of
the four sixty-three-ton steel breechloader* for her Majesty's ship Rodney
will be shortly finished, and wilt be
used as an experimental gun, cure
boinu taken not to damage it in the
the process by any of the surgical
operations to whioh experimental guns
are ocoasshmally subjected, Although
seventeen tons lighter thau the eighty-
ton muzzle-loaders on board the Inflexible, the sixty-tlirue-tou gun it expeoted to surpass the older weapon in its
destructive power. It will probably
throw a tliirtoen-mid-a-quarter-inch
shot of 1,250 pounds weight, with u
powder charge of about 580 pounds,
aud the estimated velocity at tho muz-
ssle is to be 8,100 foet per second, .the
eighty-ton projectile weighs 1,700
pounds, but the cartridge is but, 450
pounds, and the muzzlo velocity: recorded is 1,000 feet per second.
Should the new gun realize expectations it will penetrate twenty-nine
inches uf wrought-iron armor at close
quarters, and prove too much fur
twenty-seven inches even at the
liberal fighting range of a thousand yards. Still more powerful, but
not in the same ratio of increase, will
be the 110-ton cuns now lioing manufactured for H. M. 8. Benbow (bunched liut Tuesday), There are three of
these guns ordered, ono of which will
be surrendered for tho purpose of
scientific experiment, while thu other
two are sent on board ship, which,
howover, they are not wanted until
the mid-summer of 1880. The projectile will be Hi J. inch diameter and
wlegh 1,800 2,000 pound. The powder
oharuo will be the enormous one of
000 pounds, or half tho weight of the
projectile, supposing this to be 1,800
pounds un which supposition the
velocity may be reckoned nt 2,060 feet
pur secn'nd, und its power of penetrating armor at 3l£ inches near the muzzle, or two inches lorn at 1,000 yards.
The new guns will be vastly superior
to the Italian 100-ton guns, which aro
nt uteielit ut the hend of nil the naval
nrtilleryin the world, und they are to
tho like extent in advance <>f tliu 100-
ton guns whioh are doing duty for
England on the fortifications of Malta
nnd Gibraltar, although these nro larger
lu the bote by l£ incline Thu substitution of steef for wrought iron admits
of heavier charges of powder, and this
fact makes all the difference.

By a small majority the house of
commons struck out the amendments to the Scott Aot inserted by
the senate allowing beer and wines
to be sold in Seott Actwounties.
It would undoubtedly have been
most unfair if these amendments
had boen allowed to stand. In
good faith a great many counties
have oarried the Scott Act by large
majorities, and a change in the law
■uch as was proposed by the senate would have so marred tho bill
as to mako it practically useless.
On the 4th pngn of this paper
will bo found a roport of the facts
and addresses upon the occasion of
the reception by the Ohurch of Kngland synod of u deputation from the
Methodist conference at Toronto.
The spirjtof brotherhood running
through the addresses of both
Churchmen und Methodists on that
occasion contrasts strangely with
the attitude sometimes assumed by
certain persons belonging to the
same churches in this province. The
remarks of Kev. Dr. Sutherland
(who will shortly visit this province)
relating to the Canadian soldiers in
the north-west, and the application
of these remarks to the conduct of
Christian churches, are worthy of
serious reflection.
More Misrepresentation.
The Guardian of Wednesday contains another of those contemptible
slanders upon the provincial secretary for which it is noted. It states
that the officers who secured the
conviction of MesBrs. Levi aud Mc-
Ivor were sent up by the provincial
secretary, and the cases were abandoned when they were found to be
unpopular with a certain closs.
Upon investigation we find, what
might have been supposed, that the
statement is untrue. The superintendent of police curried on these
prosecutions in the ordinary discharge of his duty, and on his own
responsibility. Capt. Pittendrigh's
communication applying for counsel
went to tho department where it belonged, of course, the attorney-
general's, and the provincial secretary had nothing to do with it.
When the Guardian states that
tho provincial secretary "admitted
that he sent up the person who
swore out tho informations," it
states what must bo accepted as a
., wilful falsehood. To .whom was
the admission inadel. '_tye have no
doubt at all the provincial secretary
is ready to send detectives any wher
where their sorvices are needed, and
to back them up in the discharge
of their duty; but in this matter bo
had no concern. The Guardian's
object is so apparent and its unworthy motive so conspicuous, that
there are few who will be deceived
by these misrepresentations.

Ottawa, July 1.—Letter from Vm
Horne stating that some mritteis of detail with the local j<overiiiiwiit which
will be nettled in two weeks, immediately after which they will place engineers on the New Westminster branch.
J. A. R. HOMER.
This tolegrain, which was received
by tho mayor on Dominion Day, is
even  more  satisfactory  than the
lirst.   Tt gives us a lair assurance
thnt in two weeks surveying will
begin on thc branch to connect thit
eity with the main line of the C.
P. R., whereas tho first telegram
mentioned five weeks.   The mayor
also received on the same day another  dispatch   from  Mr.  Homer
asking if, in the event of the branch
line being completed by the 1st of
January next, the city would be
prepared to pay its share of the
bonus when the road wus graded,
and if the other half  would he
available on completion of the raid.
In answer to this the mayor telegraphed  that  the city would lie
ready  with  $37,500 on the conditions named, and tho government
had  given un assurance that the
other $37,500 would be paid whenever the road is completed.   From
Mr. Homer's enquiry we infer there
is a prospect that the road to this
. oity may be completed und ready
for operation by the ond of this
year.    Wa hope this inference is
founded upon fact     During the
few daya of winter when the river
il obstructed by ice, trade iB somc-
tunes   greatly   disorganized;   but
villi railway connection right to
Mr doors, very  little ombarruss-
meat need be felt.      Moreover,
through freight and passengers for
the interior may  be landed here
mon conveniently than at either
Fort Hammond  or Port Moody,
and will  be subjected to no increased handling or oost.    With

Welcome Rain. — Although the
shower at thia city last Tuesday was
extremely light, aiid did nut moisten
the dust, othor places in thu district
were more highly favored. About
Oliiiliwhack it rained nearly all Tuesday afternoon and night, nnd part of
Wednesday forenoon. There was
heavy rain en Tuesday within 2 miles
of this city.- As a consequence of
these showers the atmosphere is much
clearer, and the progress nf bush fires
in  many places   has been   stayed.
On the "Wrong Tack.—Commenting upon the finding of the body of
Ben. Ely, .and the refusal to hold an
inquest, the Guardian makes another
foolish attempt to hit the government
and particularly the provincial secretary. If the law is bad, it was made
by the Gitardiaiv'a own political friends
and if the coroner is bad, he was mnde
by them also. Surely tho present
government cannot bo held responsible
for the acts of the government whieh
received the Cfu-artlian'x supp.ort.
Blocking tub Roads. —Tlie mail
contractor at Upper Sumas sends a
vigorous protest againnt some person
whose name he does not mention because he has closed up some of the
public roads. Our correspondent asks
why the government allows suoh a
thing to be done. We know nothing
at all about the circumstances, but if
public roads are blocked the remedy
lies within reach of any person who is
sufficiently interested to apply it. It
is not a matter for government action
at all, but for the people who use the
road.,. "    *:>_.'
Senator McInnes Objects. — In
tlie senate on the Gth inst., Hon. Mr.
McTnnos -moved for copies of all correspondence or telegrams received
from the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company, the Legislature of British
Columbia or any of their officials, addressed to tho railway department or
any member of the privy council, respecting the western terminus of the
Canadian •Pacific Railway at Port
Mbody, Coal Harbor, or English Bay.
He expressed considerable diaaporoval
at the probability of Coal .Harbor
being made the western terminus instead of Port Moody, for which place
he had a decided preference. He
claimed that the latter was by far the
best harbor, and that to extend the
road would cost an additional million
or two. He thought that the Dominion and local governments had not
acted quite fairly in this matter, aud
that the idea of making Coal Hnrbor
the terminus waa merely a scheme by
which the syndicate and a few adventurers hoped to pocket about five
millions. If Coal Harbor was do-
cided upon the government should recoup tliose who invested at Port Moody.
Sir Alexander Campbell said he had
no idea that the hon. gentleman intended going into the subject at such
length, and was therefore not in a
position to reply so fully as he would
have liked. Port Moody was chosen
as the terminus of the Canadian Pacific railway, and all subsidies, etc.. from
the government end to Port Moody,
and if the railway company go lower
down they do so at their risk and expense. From the little he had seen of
Port Moody, he did not think it was
euch a favorable site for a large town
as it had been reported. After some
further discussion th* motion was carried.

ROBBERY OF Sll.000 ON THE RAILWAY.
»y Telegraph.
Chemainus, July 17- —Early this
morning, as Mr. Riley, paymaster for
the E. &■ N. railway, was proceeding
north about half a mile from Chi-mai-
nus wharf and passing a rock cut, lie
was ordered to halt by a man who was
blanketed and masked and situated
about thirty feet immediately over
head. He waa ordered to alight and
drop the money on the road and drive
on, which he did. Before getting out
of sight the robber came down to the
road, took the Back which is supposed
to have contained $11,000, three hundred of which was silver, and then
disappeared in the woods. The rob
ber had apparently a new title. Parties were on the ground from Che-
niaimis in less than half an hour, and
before proceeding on the trail two
miles found the blanket, pipe, and
eoriDty fruit cans, supposed to have
been last night's camp. Fortunately
for Mr. Riley, he had no tire-arms, or
he might have lost hia life.
Tlie Most Agreeable
As well as the most effective method of

(Corrwpondenotof the Columbian.)
Gbanvillk, July 17.—Since I last
wrote you there has been little stirring
except "fire." Close by, a resident on
the eighty-five acres has spent a couple
of hundred dollars to prevent a four
hundred dollar house from burning;
while mine host of the Deighton hss
had his hotel roof scraped and water
barrels filled in anticipation of the fire
reaching the town; as if any precaution would save the town if that destructive agency onco got a fair hold
on any building here. Now I am on
the subject of fire, I might as well
finish: One logging camp of the Moody ville sawmill company opposite here
has been burned, out and one belonging ■'> the H. S. M. Co., between
here and Fraser river; has been almost
if not entirely ruined. By the way,
in my last I mentioned a boating accident, luckily without losa of life. Is
there uo law by which men can be
prevented from risking their own lives,
and those ef others, in unseowovthy
crafts 1 A few nights ago some of our
worthies went out in an overloaded
boat, were caught in a squall and with
difficulty reached home. Who is able
to appreciate thu grief that would prevail if that boat had met with a fatal
accident and plunged a whole town
into mourning ? And to-day (calm as it
is) our medical luminary wsnt out sailing with a man that ought to have
known better, in a boat that, in the
event of wind rising, was little better
than a coffin for the pair bf them. The'
government exercises a wise super-'
vision over tho welfare of steamboat-
passengers and idiots, and I think it
ought to be prevailed on to prevent
men from going to sea in open boats
who have not knowledge enough to
keep out of a dangerous craft. The
body of Ben Ell, who was drowned by
his boat being run over by the Western
Slope about the 15th of Juno, wns
brought hero on Tuesday aud buried
at New Westminster next day. There
was uo inquest held over the remaiua.
Now, I'm not inclined to be a captious
fault-finder in tho least, but I in common with many (indeed most) of my
fellow-citizens think that in alt such
casi's an enquiry ought to be held and
the blame, if any, placed where it belongs and punishment, if necessary,
should follow. There aro 3 ships loading at this port, 1 at Moodyville, and
2 at Hastings mill. One of the latter
will soon be ready for sea.

Gilbert Laird, St. Margaret's Hope,
Orkney, Scotland, writes: I am requested by several friends to order another
parcel of Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil. The
last lot I got from you having been tested iu several cases of rheumatism, has
given relief when doctors' medicines
nave failed to have any effect. The excellent qualities of this medicine should
be made known, that the millions of suf*
feiers throughout the world may benefit
hy its providential discovery."
C. C. Jacobs, Buffalo, N. Y., says:
"Dr. Thomas' Eclectrio Oil cured liim of
a bad case of piles of 8 years' standing,
having tried almost every known remedy,
'besides two Buffalo physicians,1 without
relief; but the Oil cured him; he thinks
it cannot be recommended too highly,"
There being imitations on the market of
Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, customers
will see that they get the genuine.

Ottawa; J«ly G.-—The Senate have
decided to insist upon their amend
ments to the Bill amending tho Scott
Act nnd the Bill will be sent back to
tlie House uf Commons with the win*
aud beer cliuisea restored. The question came up in the Senate this even-
tng. Sir Alexander Campbell undertook to champion the anti-temperance
clause. TVIr. Vidal moved that the
Senate -should not insist upon its
amendment striking out the clause imposing penalties upon doctors, magistrates, and others for granting liquor
certiticatea improperly. Sir Alexander
Campbell advised the House to adhere
to its course of a few days ago. The
House of Commons had not given
sufficient reason for restoring its penalty clause as tho Act already provided
for titer' punishment of persons violating the Act. It would be an outrage
to have doctors and clergymen dragged
summarily before any neat of a justice
of the peace to answer charges of
granting certificates for liquor improperly. Sir Alexander's motion that
the Senate should insist on its amendment was carried by 15 to 30. Mr.
'Vidal then moved that the Senate
ahould not insist upon its wine and'
beer amendments. Sir Alexander
Campbell moved that the amendment
should be insisted nn, as the reasons
given by the House of Commons for
rejecting the amendment wero unsound. Thia Parliament was not
bound by tho Act of any preceding
Parliament, and those oities and counties which adopted tfne Scott Act had
no right to assume that it would not
be repealed for three years, so that
there was no compact to be broken.
This Parliament was free to do as it
pleased in the matter. Ths House of
Commons had misrepresented tho law
because all that was provided was that
no executive action should be taken
Hfo repeal tho Act in (my particular county within three years. He
assigned as a reason for insisting on
the wine and beer clause that it was
desirable in the truo interests of temperance. This was as true as anything
could be, and moreover it had been
pacmed in compliance with the expressed
wishes of a targe proportion of the
electorate. Sir Alexander's motion
was supported by Messrs. Plumb and
Dickey, nud opposed by Messrs. Scott
and Vidal. The liouso then divided
on Sir Alexander's amendment, which
wa** carried by .TO to 15.

Dublin, July 14.- The Munster bank
to-day suspended payment: liabilities,
88,750,000. The majority of the shareholders are ladies, solely dependent on
the bunk dividends for their income.
Owing to large unsecured indebtedness
of the Minister bank, the bank of Ireland
yesterday decided to stop supplies, nud
this resulted in a suspension that is liable
to bring great Buffering on the south of
Ireland, Tho directors claim that by
careful realizations the bank's assets are
ample, It would nppear that recent litigation, in whicli Shaw, M.I*., is largdy
concerned, caused a run, from which the.
hank was unable to recover.
London, July 14.—The remaining
members of the British Afghan frontier
commission, with their military escort,
have suddenly struck tents aud are
inarching toward Herat. The reason for
their linnty retirement is unknown, and
the news oaused much uneasiness. It is
thought tliere must be grave reason for
leaving cool hills for the hot. heat of thc
valley.
London, July 14.—TJie Pall Mall Gazette announces this afternoon that the
Archbishop of Canterbury--tho Bishop of
London, Cnrdiuul Manning, and the Hon.
Samuel Morcly, have conseiitcd to net as
a committee of inquiry into, thc charges
'of aristocratic iuit-uity mndo by the Gazette. The committee is looked-upon ns
one of the most extraordinary.ia tho hi-jh
character of its members. It will begin,
the work of investigation tiMnorro\ft
afternoon. The Gazelle, will place iu confidence before the committee every detail
ofy evidence gathered by the paper's ro*
pot -tonal commission on which it relics
to' prove tho existence of wickedness
stated by it. Every person engaged in
the Qazette investigation will appear
under oath .before the committeo nnd
each will produce the memoranda gathered by him during tho -several weeks of
inquiry, to-Mth--.-* witli ull  u.Mi'u-n****, l«t.

to persons directly of indirectly implicated in the discoveries mado. The com-
mitto will treat confidentially all information placed beforo it, bub will make
memoranda and report as to the truth of
tlie Gazelle's revelations. A conference
fo^ the protection of young girls opened
this afternoon in Princess Kail. The
cliief promoter of tlie conference is the
Salvation Army. The Hon. Saml, Morloy, Liberal M.I1. for Bristol, presided
and made an address on the subject of
iniquity exposed by the Pall Mall Gazette. He declared that thc condition of
things in London as revealed by tliat
paper was a scandal to a Christian nation. "The people must speak out," exclaimed the orator, "if their homes are
tb bo kept sacred from thi» surrounding
pollution. I believe tliere is one law for
the rich and another for the poor iu theso
matters aud it should be a felony to steal
a poor person's ohild." Prof. James
Stuart proposed a vote of thanks to the
proprltor and editor of the Pall Mall
Gazette for the assistance their work has
rendered to the cause of Christian morality. This proposal wu unanimously
adopted ob was also a resolution urging
narlinnient to raise the "age of consent
rroin 13 to 18 years. Mrs. Booth addressed the conference, and referring to
the Queen, said: "Her Majesty's heart
beats on the right Bide of this qucstiou.''
Mrs. Booth announced that she hnd received letters from the Marquis of Salisbury nnd Mr. Gladstone, encouraging thc
work of the conference. Tho letters were
not read, Mrs. Booth saying i.lie would
reserve them Jor a meeting in Mxcter
Hall next Thursday in furtherance of the
movement inaugurated to-day. Sir
Richard Ashton Cross, homo secretary,
announced in the house of commons this
afternoon that the government hnd con-
eluded it was not auvjsable tq prosecute
the Pall Mall Gazelle for its recent publications.
Lord Randolph Churchill, secretary
for India, stated in the commons.tins
afternoon that the govornment had no
intention of negotiating with Abdurrahman Khan, Ameer of Afghanistan, for
the defence of Candahar, Kngland, he
said, had given certain pleditos to thn
Ameer if emergencies requiring 11 nrise
and theAmeoraskafcrawiistnncc. Whatever government might be in power, thu
secretary continued, tho course of V.m-

for the March quarter »'' thc present
year is $880,000 in excess of the deficit
during the corresponding quurtci-of ISS4.
The tinancial officers of tho department
had estimated that the deficiency at tlio
•nd ef the present llscal year would be
between ¥4,000,000 and ?o,000,000. but
they are now of tho opinion that thc
deficit will aggregate about 30,000,000.
The reduction in revenue and inrrenso of
expenditures Is attributed to the business
depression, which is quickly felt iu the
postoliice department.
Wahhiniiton, .fuly 14.---A colored
man named Onsen, who was thu causo of
a controversy between cx-Secretnry Lin*
coin and General ITazen, about a year
ago, hao turned lip again, At that time
Maxell declined to enlist (been in thc
-Signal Corps, on thc ground thit regiments of cavalry and infantry had been
net apart for colored soldiers, but not
thu .signal Corns. Secretary Lincoln,
however, ordered his enlistment in that
corps, provided that ho could pass the
requisite examination.   Green passed the
examination, and was sent to Fort Meyer
to undergo a regular course of instruction. He performed the duties acceptably, and with other members of hia
class became eligible for utatian duty.
Tiie signal bureau at Pensacola asked for
nn assistant,* and wus told one would be
sent. The ollicer ut that place procured
for him board and rooms' in his owu
boarding place and made other arrangements to receive him. Green was tlie
man selected as an assistant, and waa
sent to Pensacola. On his arrival the
signal service ollicer refused to receive
bun because of his color. The ollicer has
now been summoned to Washington for
an explanation. The colored man remains in charge at Peusacolu. It is
stated at thc chief signal office that
Green was assigned to Pensacola without
any regard to his color, and that the
ollicer who selected him did hot know at
the time of his selection that Green was
a colored man.
IjOX'oon, July 15.*—The downward
tendency in tho stock market to-day is
assisted by rumors that the government
had received information confirming the
rumors received by the Timen of a Rub-
sian advance in Zulfikar Pass. News of
this hostile demonstration on the part of
the Russians, togotlier with Churchill's
assertions in the commons'last evening
that England would assist the Ameer if
he asked for assistance, has created much
excitement. In the commons this evening Lord Randolph Churchill, secretary
of state for India, replying to a question
in regard to the reported Russian advance in Afghanistan, stated that the
government had hoard of no movement
speaking of the retirement of the members of tho Uritish Afghan frontier commission in the direction of Herat. Churchill said that the Heratites, hearing
thnt the Russians contemplated a descent on Herat, had invited Commission-
era Yates and Pease to enter their city,
and the request had been complied with.
Thc stock market opened this morning
firm with an upward tendency. Home
funds were especially buoyant. The
nows of the Russian advance in Afghan*
istaii, however, quickly reversed everything. The market was taken completely
hy surprise, and a semi-panic prevailed,
lhe sharp fall In consols, amounting to
1 5*10, indicates how seriously the market regarded the news from Afghmiatan.
Tkhehan, July 15.- A large number
of Russian reinforcements have arrived
at Merv and Pabi-Khiihli during the
past fortnight. Four regiments from
Cabul, the capital of Afghanistan, hnve
arrived at Herat. Four regiments are
ou thoir wny from Hazora.
London, July 15,-—Tht Timet) haa .received special dispatches from Jagdera*
baten, via Meshed July llth, Wftich';Bay
that it is rumored that the Russians have
advanced in force to Zcnleffnrk, and that
they arc locating Persian territory as
though it belonged to Russia. The dispatches also say the British frontier com*
mission iB moving nearer to Herat.. Reinforcements ire arriving at Askabtd.
The advance of the Russians has made
thc Afghans anxious; hut they are determined to resolutely resist auy attempt
to seize their territory. They are puzzled at these warlike preparations ofthe
Russians, under cover of pacific assurances. It is believed that Gen. Alikhan-
ofT, commander of tho Russian advance,
has determined to force on war, and'that
lie is deceiving the czar hi regard to his
real intentions.
Tho lord mayor, iu accordance with
the government decision announced by
thc home secretary in parliament yeaterday, uot to prosecute the Pall Mall Gazelle, has discharged a large number of
newsboys who had been under arrest for
several days under a charge of soiling
alleged obscene literature. The Archbishop of Canterbury, BlBhop of Loudon,
Cardinal Manning and Samuel Morloy

at the doors of the bank here, and at
Dublin, Limerick, and other cities and
towns in Ireland where the bank has
branches.   At noon the streets in the
icinity of the bank iu this city were
blocked with a crowd of people clamoring
for their money. A large force of police
were stationed at the Irnnk to preserve
order. The crowd is hourly growing
larger andmore disorderly and fears of a
riot are entertained.
Toronto, July 16.—At a public meeting held last night, whioh waa largely

Cholera In Spain*.
(Cablo lHspatclies to N. Y. llernlil.)
Murcia, like all Spanish cities noted
iu this epidemic for great mortality
among Ub paoplo, is the centre of a
fertile valley surrounded by highly
cultivated fields und market, gardens.
Through it Hows it badly omolling river,
the water of which are twice duinmed
near the city's centre and uru distributed by many canals over the vulloy.
The streets are narrow, with high
houses, nud in many places tbe entrance of sunliyht and air is still further impeded by curtains placed horizontally across the streets from housetop to housetop. The sanitary condition of the city is better than that of
most Spanish cities. The people live
careleaBly iu spite of the cholera. It
is not unusual to see melons und other
green fruit piled on the balconies of
houses ready for consumption.

Then he got tipsy. He returned penniless to the hospital ■ -v bight tu die
of malignant cholera. W'otiu.'ii are
much more subject tn cholem than
men, and of thc live nurses who died,
sll ire womei.
As tho result ot ititoyviewi- with the
leading meu of Murcin, your ci respondent thinks the following statements will prove true ooncerning the
epidemic as it it! resent manifests
itself:--
The cholera will extend throughout
the greater portion of Spain, lt may
luat until late in the fall. It is not
impossible that cholera cases mny.occur next year.
The disease seems to follow the
course of rivers. It spreads nlways
below the place (irst infected. Thus,
the head waters of the Tugus being
now infected, the cholera mny now be
expected to pass all quarantines and
enter Portugal. ■ ■
Cholera spreads rapidly with groat
virulence along the course of v river.
By land its spread iB uncertain and
slow, depending largely on personal
contact between the inhabitants of
neighboring towns.'1
A man of average health, not given
to excesses, using only boiled water
for even such purposes as brushing the
teeth, who oats no green, uncooked
food, need not fear the cholera in tht
least.
-   Anything    wUinlj    1'edueen   vitulity,
even temporarily, may at oncn lead to
cholera. Women havt more to fear
from cholera, but with proper precautions there is little danger.
Extreme fear of the disease often
leads to au attack of cholera.
Dr. Ferran'e inoculation will not
play an important part, in this epidemic, however great, its. part may bo in
the next one.
Cholera germs live for an uncertain
period. They are known to live for
months and yet retain sufficient vitality
to cause cholera iu porson-i exposed to
them.
Grent care regarding infected letters
and clothing is therefore necessary.
Valencia oranges und Malaga raisins
uf thii year's crop may carry cholera
germs to consumers even in distant
countries. They are therefore among
the things not to eat.
Weighed in the Balance, but not
found wanting. Northrop k Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure
has been weighed in tbat just balance,
the experience of an impartial and intelligent public. Both rcmedially und pecuniarily it is a success. Its sales constantly increase, testimony in its favor
is daily pouring in. The question of its
efficacy in Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint,
Kidney Ailments, nnd for Blood impurity, is decided.
There is at the mouth of the Sanity

Sandy, aud having since been covered

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. Tt is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers, of good
music as being tbe location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of tins building, which coat
about §1,000, became necessary to meet
tlie requirements of the company, which
had beeu cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
thc merits of htgh-olaf-s instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters un the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. Tht large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
nnd comfort. Hero a crowd mny be
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by loading
city aud country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern liad, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years 'ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with tlie .business. About ten
years go John Wesley, tlie present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
mnnagOr of the manufacturing department; and YV. S. Russell, .superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the_ shareholders and assumed control. Since that dntc the business has
been booming. A further stimulus wns
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to tho organ-manufacturing, aud the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos por month. These arc produced
by 250 bauds, who receive iu wages
about $15,000 per mouth. The whole
ciVlW<l WrlS "io «i<i flriil'ti 10-nlte.t, (".<I
they have branches hi London and Manchester, Kngland; Hamburg, Gcnnauy;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia,        *
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a spleudid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. Thc former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, "with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing witli oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful, In musical quality and appearance they arc equal to the best
American pianos.
Thc organs made by the Compnny are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, aud at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs aro shown in the pcvilion.
The largest, organ whicli the 'Company
will exhibit, a double-bunk pedal, is at
present at lite Dominion Inhibition,
Montreal, but is expeoted here nt the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. Tlm orgnns run through all grades, from tlie
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. Thc casos show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty nud skilful workmanship.
The cuso which secured for the Company
n prize nt tlie Centennial Exhibition nt
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
iB largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste iu design nud artis
tic in execution. Tho musicians who

Address HARPER A BROS., New Yelk* Do intoxicating Drinks Predispose to Disease and Death?
A CONDENSED ANSWER FOR THE STUDY OF
TNE PEOPLE.
Dr. Beitle hns come nearer tu unfolding the mysteries of animal life thnn
all the investigators that lmvo preceded
him. He discovered "an almost infinite distribution of living, moving
bioplasts in every nerve, muscle, vein,
artery and fiber of the animal organism.'1
BIOPLASTS THE DIttECT AGENTS Off  LIFE.
These bioplasts can be seen under a
powerful microscope moving hither
and thither as things of life, picking
up and distributing atoms of nutrition
to build up new tissuo or repair old.
But what is it that moves tliese bioplasts, these smallest active atoms nf a
living body, causing them tri work liko
so muiiyintiniteaiimil ants in constructing nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments,
etc., by adding cell to cell in infinite
numbers ? I answer it is life. And
tho perfection of animal life depends
upon the unhitemiptid active change
of these cells. Tho instant a cell has
duns its duty in tlie mutual organism
it dies, and must bo removed, and a
new ono take its placo. Ou the exact
equilibrium between the removal of
dead cells and their replacement by
new living ones, does the highest
physical health and pleasurable activity
depend—vitality and death must always hang in equipose. Tho material
for the construction of these culls is
obtained from tho blood-corpuscles,
each one of which holds in watery solution particles "f b-oti, salt, potash,
lime, sulphur, phosphorus, sugar and
magnesia. Now anything that vitiates
or unbalances the chemical elements in
this solution we call the blood, is detrimental to health and hostile to life.
Alcohol-on account of its poisonous
nature and strong affinity for tho
water holding these substances iu solution dues so act upon it.   It is a
roisoN.
But what is a poison? Dr. Muzzy
says, "Anything which, when applied
to a living surface, disconcerts life's
healthy movements. Such a poison is
alcohol; such in all its forms, mix it
as wo may." It cuts short tho life of
rapidly growing colls, or causes thom
to live more slowly; either of which is
radically injurious. Its action,on the
blood globules to microscopic appearance is identically the samo ns that of
arsenic and oxide of carbon; the latter
is so extremely poisonous that to
breathe it is instant death. Alcohol
in tlio blood by its powerful affinity
for water and albumen so modifies tho
play of vital affinity as tu retard those'
active atomic or molecular changes iti
the coll formations which constitute
nutrition, disintegration and secretion.
Indeed the free and continued use of
ardent spirits so lessens the sensibility
of the gastric nervo that nppetito for
food is soon lost. The processes of
digestion and assimilation ave su far
suspended that the brain and tho
nervous system generally aro deprived
of sufficient nourishment, whicli soon
results in delirium tremens-the brain
fever of the drunkard—terribly aggravated by a guilty conscience, nud the
gloating buffeting of Satan. Insanity
or death often closes tho scene. Alcohol not only diminishes the sensibility
and strength of the body, but reduces
its temperature below tbe rionnal
healthy standard to thu extent of frum
one-half to tivo degrees Fnhr. according
to the amount taken.
PURE
ALCOHOL    I'llE-IUKl'OSII-S    TO    CHOLERA.
Asiatic cholera singles out the intemperate with fata! precision while it
leaves tho tolal abstainer generally untouched. Iu tho united kingdom of
England* Scotland, and Ireland 10,000
persons fell a prey to cholera, but not
a single member of a temperance society. Iu Montroal, Canada, nearly
1,500 were carried into eternity by this
terrible plague, but only one out of
350 total abstinence men. Dr. Bron-
son of Albany, N.Y., spent some time
iu the city, and states ''that the disease
searched the haunts of the drunkard,
and seldom left it without bearing
away its victims. liven moderate
drinkers wero but a little better offi"
Dr. Rhinelander joins him iu like testimony. Monsieur Hubert said of
2,100 persons whom he saw die in 21
days in ono town.in Kiiseia: "It is a
most remarkable circumstance that
persons given to drinking have been
swept away liko flies." Of 20,000 inhabitant's in Tiflis, every drunkard
died—not one remained. Nearly all
of the 110,000 persons who died of
cholew in Paris wore in tho habit of
using strong drink. When it visited
Britain in 1843*4!), ono uf tho most
extensive liquor merchants in Glasgow
remarked that "cholera had out oft nt
least oue hnlf of his best customers."
Dr. A. M. Adams, Prof, of medicino
in Glasgow, and one whoso namo ranks
high in tho medical profession, says,
"1 havo found tlio uso of alcoholic
drinks to be tho most powerful predisposing cause of malignant cholera with
which I am acquainted. So strong is
my opinion on this point, that wore I
one of tho authorities, and had thu
power, I would placard evory liquor
store in town with largo bills containing tlio words, -Cholera Sold Here.
Intoxicating drinks aro tho predisposing cause of .nine tenths of all cholera
cases." My noxt will he—Are intoxicating drinks detrimental to tho well-
being of the peoplo with respect to
tlieir morals,happiness,and unity?

WATKR   THE NATURAL HLOOO
SOLVENT.
Tho noted prize-tighter, Turn Sayers,
was once asked By a gentleman, "Well,
Thomas, 1 suppose* that when you are
training you uso plenty of beefsteak,
London porter, and pale nio?" Tom
replied, "In my time I have drunk
more tban was good for me; but when
I have business to do, there is nothing
like water nnd the dum-bells." Aftor
retiring from business, be took to
drink aud died a sot. Cold water made
him a Samson; alcohol laid him in the
grave. Water enters into tho constitution of healthy blood to tho extent
of about 80 per cent.; it is tho only
natural solvent. Pure water contains
a large percentage of pure atmosphoric
air, and is an essential agent, designed
by the Creator, in oxygenating the
, blood niubgiving it vitality. In deaths
alike from cholera and drunkenness,
tbo blood shows a deficiency of oxygen
and a superabundance of carbon. Alcohol contains upwards of 50 per cent,
of carbon, and is a direct antagonist of
tht vital powers, loading them down
with what they are momemtarily struggling to throw off.
ALCOHfy- 8UOHTENK LIFE.
Mr. Neilson, a registrar of England
has shown "that the mortality of
drunkards at tho ago of 21 to .'0 is fivo
times greater than tlie rest of mankind
at the Hame ages." Another writer
says, "that at the age of 20, when the
genoral population hnvo nu equal
chance uf living 44 years, thnt of tlie
intemperate is but 15L" From (lawfully prepared London insurance tables,
it appears that, "averaging the whole
period of life from 15 to 00 years, U2
intemperate persons die to evory 10 of
others." Tho United Kingdom Teni-
poranci and Provident Institution,
finds by the returns of its oilieo ox-
tending over a period of 10 years ending 1881, that only 70 per cent, of the
expected deaths in tho Temperance
Section actually occurred, whilo .)!!
per cent, of the expected deaths in thc
General Section actually occurred.
These figures of themselves nro a sufficient answer to thu question at the
head of this article,
alcohol rRRDtarbaufl to inflammation
ANO   MORTIFICATION.
"It is well known by thoso conversant with the facts, that ale and beer
drinkers aro the worst subjects that
enter the hospitals," "It has boen
said that they die like rotten sheep."
"They cannot scratch their fingers but
it is death." In hundreds of instnncos
inflammation nnd speedy dissolution
are the consequences of a slight bruise
of the hand. "A slight cut is often
sufficient to carry the stout and able-
bodied beer drinker to hia gravo in
spite of the best treatment he can receive."
ALCOHOL PRK-DI81'0SEH TO FEVER.
In the great fever thnt raged in London in 1730 the intemperate were the
fint and most numerous victims. Dr.
Short lays, "The like wiib thu fato of
•11 tipplers, dram-drinkers, and punch-
merchants. Scarcely nny one olso died
of this iiimo fever. Dr. Oarnwright,
of New Orleans, states in 1853, that
yellow-fever carried off 0,000 intemperate before it touched n single temperate man, so far na he could get at
the facta."
Watekford, July 13.—The annl
veraary of tho battle of the Boyne
yesterday caused a large increaso in
the usual Sunday number of drunken
men to be scon on the streets last
night. Among them were many of
the soldiers of the Welsh regiment
doing garrison duty here. A number
of citizens got into a drunken row
with the soldiers, during which the
latter bayonetted to death one of tho
former. Tho commotion attracted
crowds of men to tho scene. Win
tho civilians realized that one of their
number hnd been killed they became
furious and foil upon tho soldiers with
such force that the latter wero compelled to heat a hasty retreat to their
barracks. The mob followed them up,
but being threatened with powder and
ball, if they attempted to force an entrance to the barracks, they contented
themselves with smashing tho windows
of the barracks with stones. Tho rage
nf the populace was so groat this morning that it was deemed best to transfer
the Welsh regiment to somo other
placo. This was done immediately,
and as tho soldiers march oil from tbo
barracks to thu railway station, surrounded by policemen, the mob followed them, hooting and stoning the
soldiers. Several ParnelHte members
of parliament have telegraphed they
will bring tho matter boforo tho government and demand mi immediate
inquiry into thc outrage. Jt is goner-
ally believed that, tbe Holdiehj-bei-an
the row.
Madrid, July 13.—Thoro wero 1,-
| 417 new cases of cholera reported in
Spain yesterday and 007 deaths. Cholera has broken out in four places in
tbo provinco of Jaen; forty-two-new
casus were reported yesterday in that
province and eighteen deaths. Otlicial
reports show tlie total to be 30,000
casos in Spain since tbo inception of
the scourge up to last evening aud a
total of 13,000 deal hB.
. Watbhford, July 13.—The name
of the civilian killed during the riot
last evening was Peter Grant. During
the hottest part of the conflict a soldier attacked Grunt and plunged a
bayonet, straight through the man's
heart. Tho trngody infuriated the
people, aud they fell with such force
on the troops that tho latter retreated
in full force into tho barracks, where
thoy were besieged all night by the
citizens. Two privates woro arrested
this morning on suspicion of being
guilty of Grant's murder. A number
of civilians profess to bo able to identify
the soldier who killed Grant.
Pittsbuiiuii, July 13.—Shortly beforo dark this evening the Alleghany
valley was visited by oue of tho most
disastrous storms known in that section, rain fell in torrents for an hour,
the wind blew a hurricane, and thunder aud lightning wns incessant. At
Harmouville tho lightning struck tho
telegraph office, killing instantly James
McFeoders, a student, uged twelve,
aud rendering unconscious tlie operator, Miss Mary Hnzlet. Tho building
is partially wrecked. At Frooport
four inches and a hnlf of rain fell in
un hour, Hooding tlio cellnrs, yards
nnd streets, nnd covering the'West
Pennsylvania and Butler branch railroad with water to a depth of several
foot, the track in somo places washed
awny nnd in others the debris is pi hid
live feet high. Tho trains are stopped
In all directions. At Diets station
the freight train rnn into tt landslide
and was badly wrecked. Peter's creok,
near Lcechburg, is swollen boyond its
bunks, nnd numerous gas nnd oil dor-
ricks havt'. been washed down the
stream. Kirk pat rick's street plant, nt
Lcechburg, is under wator, and tho
loss will reach many thousand dollars.
The damage to hay and grain alone in
this and surrounding districts will
amount to an enormous sum.
Titl-jvillb, Pa., July 13.-A cloud
