current Events and Opinions.
No one will deiiy that of late
years our trade has not been expanding with such remarkable rapidity as it formerly did; and it is
equally true that there has been a
great curtailment of manufacturing
profits. Still, the volume of our
business has not ceased to grow, and
although producers have had to content themselves with n smaller return upon their capital, distributors
have been currying on a profitable
trade, and consumers have benefitted greatly from the low prices of
commodities. The consequence is
that we have passed through tlie
present period of comparative depression with probably less suffering
than has beon endured on almost
any other of the ever-recurring periods of dull trade,—London I'kono-
mist.
It seems hardly possible that the
House of Lords should como out of
the battle without receiving a wound
whioh sooner or later must prove
mortal. The princile of hereditary
government on which it rests is too
hopelessly dead, its own record is
too fatally bad, its uselessness, and
worse than uselessness, even as a
conservative institution, is too flagrantly apparent. Moreover its material foundation, the immense rent
roll of the landed aristocracy, is
now, owing to the depression of
agriculturo, rapidly slipping awny.
Slow as the march of English progress is, numerous as are the sources
against Democracy in a land of
ancient wealth and fixed tradition,
the days of the House of Lords are
now numbered. The attempt to find
for hereditary monarchy and aristocracy a new basis hi demagogism,
under the name of Tory Democracy,
having failed in the hands of Disraeli, who was its projector, is not
likely to succeed in those of Lord
Randolph Churchill.—Toronto Week.
Tlie amount of revenue wliich
opium contributes to tlie Indian and
Ohinese exchequers in proportion to
cost of production is wonderful. In
India the revenue from this source
in 1839-50 was $3,900,000' in 1879-
80 it was $54,100,000, and two
years later $46,800,000. In the
last named year the cost of production and manufacture in Bengal was
only ten million dollars, but the
produce sold for thirty-seven millions, leaving the government a net
profit of nearly $27,000,000, or 270
per cent, The native states of British India produced large quantities
which on being shipped to Bombay
contributed to the Indian government nearly $11,000,000. Nearly
the whole Indian export goes to
China, und there the import of the
same year contributed a large revenue again, the Chinese government
levying on it $10,500,000. The
Ohinese consumers paid in all for
this Indian opium $84,000,000.
Strange as it may seem this vast
amount is consumed by littlo more
than a million people. These can-
hot belong to the poorer classes in
China for the average daily expenditure for each smoker is nbout 21
cents, certainly more than a member of the poorer classes could pay
out of his scanty wages.—Globe,
These be "parlous" times in Russia. The reigning Emperor is aori-
ouily apprehensive. Every precaution is taken to protect the person
of his august majesty, A matured
plot against his life has been discovered. Neither public execution,
nor' the dreaded consignment to the
wilderness of Siberia, with hard
labor in the mines as an additional
detriment, affects the resolute Nihilists, According to the Moscow Gazette, sedition has reached as high as
Lieutenaut-Oolonels in tho army, and
is not likely to stop thero. The
Viedomoet thinks that the "canker of
Nihilism has eaten through overy
olass of society, private and official."
A St. Petersburg correspondent of
the London Timet says that "the
Rector of the University of Khar-
koff has informed the students, who
are showing signs of demonstrating
against the eviction of their comrades at Kieff, that in conformity
with the new University statutes,
all those taking part in any kind of
meeting will be immediately und
summarily expolled," Yet, in spite
of this warning, three hundred, of
the students, arose in insubordination and wero dispersed by tlie police. Expulsion had no terrors for
them. Says the correspondent:
"Indications of growing agitation
are observable in other universities,

and further troubles are very probable." A* dispatoh from Vienna says
that a lotter to the Political Correspondence from St. Petersburg "refers
to another increase in Nihilistic
agitation in that capital. In the
provinces a manifesto has been circulated among the peasants, urging
them to hostilities against the higher
classes. This has led to somo risings
against landed proprietors." A few
of tlie peasants have beeu executed
for revolt To the Nihilists is attributed the cause of the disturbance. They are here, there and
everywhere in Russia. The "matured plot" against the Czar's lifft
may sbe only an existence of police
imagination. At any rate tho police
have discovered nothing definite in
that direction yet. But it is natural
enough that his Imperial Majesty is
sensitively apprehensive. It is natural enough, too, that the conspirators against his person, if such there
be, keep their rigioidal intention a
profound secret not to lio penetrated
by the guardians of tho law. The
assassin, when he strikes, especially
at a shining mark, strikes unexpectedly. The Czar ,is well "guarded,
both in his palace and on tho road
when travelling j but certain of his
recent predecessors havo fallen, notwithstanding precautions, whether
in their stately home or on the highway. Tho present ruler of All the
Russians does not evidently sit on a
throne of quietness. His daily life
is ono of continual uneasiness that
displays itself in his every public
motion.—San Francisco Bulletin.

A Terrible Operation.
A terrible surgical operation was performed at the general hospital in this
city on Saturday lust, when a man's
tongue was cut out in ordur to prevent him from dyiiij* a painful, if not
an excruciating death. The victim was
a man, apparently about fifty years of
age, who came to the general hospital
a few days ago to be treated for what
he supposed was simply a sore tongue.
The doctors, aftor mnking an examination, found that the man was suffering
from a cancer which hnd formed on his
tengue, and the only remedy waB immediate amputation of that must useful organ, The uufortunato individual
decided to submit' to jtho Alteration
rather than suffer tho torture to which
he had been subjected to forsomo timo
past. When he had given tho surgeons
the facts with reference to his case
they found that the disease) wus simply
tho result of the habit of excessive
smoking. The patient had boen a
smoker. The pipe whioh lie hnd
generally smoked waB a common clay
one, the stem of which had been broken
off short, leaving a ragged edge. This
sharp edge had, at first, caused simply
an nlmision of the akin, which became
painful. The smoker, not dreaming of
the cause or the result of a continuance
of the practice, kept on smoking his
short clay pipe until aftor some time
it was only with intense pain that he
could speak, nnd was unable to take
any solid food. At last-the pain be*
came Buch thnt he deemed it advisable
to visit the general hospital, in order to
get relief, if possible. Amputation wna
the only means of relief. The operation was performed by Dr. Maofarlane
in the presence of a large number of
students and . physicians. Of course
the latest scientific appliances were
uaed to make the unfortunate man suffer aa little as possible. He is now
doing quite well at the hospital, and,
although past the middle age, will likely live aomt years; but without the
power of speech or sense of taste,—
Toronto Globe,
MoonsMnln* In Ireland.
The place selected for the operations
of the distiller is usually some natural
hollow, or a sheltered spot partially
hidden by Borne overhanging rock.
But occasionally tliere are muoh more
habitable, places, prepared. A favorable example of thia la an artificial
cave dug out in the side of a high
bnnk close to a stream, the proximity
of whioh is always necesaary for their
operations. The entrance ts generally
concealed with great ingenuity by a
luxuriant growth of furze and other
shrubs. Inside, a raised seat of earth,
on which somo heather has been
atrewn, and a rudely built chimney
complete the structure. 11 The functions
of the chimney nre not by nny menus
exhausted by being brought up to the
natural level of the earth. As is well
known, burning peat has an oasy recognizable i>dor, and if this drew attention to n wreath of smoke asceud-
im* in the midst of n field, tho chances
of a long life fur the still-houBU would
be very small iudeod. Instead, therefore, of being directly brought out,
every conceivable artifice ia employed
to render the smoko invisible. Sometimes it is led into a drain; at others
into a thick growth of underwood;
again, it is carried for some distance
nnd allowed to make ita escape in such
small quantities as to bo practically
imperceptible. In one case of which
we knew, tho still-house was under
ground, in the vicinity ot tho owner's
cottnge, and advantage of thia wna
taken to convey the chimney up tho
earthen fence and effect a junction
with the flue of the kitchen. In some
oases a dwelling-house is chosen in
suoh a locality as to defy suspicion. An
example of this, occurred in a market
town whero distillation was carried on
for many years in the main street,
within a hundred yards of an important constabulary barracks, and the
owner in this caso was said to have
amassed a considerable amount of
money. For aught that is known,
many aimilnr instances may. still exist,
as tho shrewdness shown by tho choice
of suoh a hiding-place reuders detection, oxcept through treachery, a most
unlikely event. It would bo well, perhaps, to add thnt in the case just related, tfio proprietor of tho still waa a

Wednesday Horning,  Dec. 10, I8M*
There seems little reason to doubt
that Khartoum is still safe in the
hands of Gen. Gordon, and that tho
expedition for its relief will be successful. Gen. "Wolseley lias had experience enough, one would suppose,
to prevent him running any serious
risks in a matter whore the completeness of the arrangements were
of the greatest importance. AU
the world is anxious to obtain an
authentic history of the moat remarkable siege of modern times, and
the enterprising historian who firat
gives such a history to tho world
may realize a fortune. The relief
must be aftected very soon, or the
expedition must fail.
A New Boom.
When Mr. Van Horno visited
this city some mon*. lis ago he stated
very plainly what were the intentions of the railway syndicate respecting the western terminus. No
person who heard his utterances,
aud who knew the circumstances,
could find reasonable ground upon
which to doubt that thi road would
go down to Goal Harbor. But there
were some persons who professed to
doubt this, and who even declared
that Mr. Van Home's statements
were sufficient to establish Port
Moody as the permanent terminus.
Of course these persons were owners
of Port Moody lota A report of
the interview lietwcen Mr. Van
Home and the committee who met
him in this oity was published in
The Columbian. It was a fair and
impartial report, but it was twisted
and distorted and denounced by the
Port Moody Gazette and the Guardian of this city, and by persons
whoso interests were likely to sutler
from the publication of the truth.
We need hardly say that very recent events have shown botli that
Mr. Van Home's statements were
true and tliat they wero correctly
reported by this journal. Tlie arrangement between the 0. P. R. syndicate and the government and
private property holders at Coal
Harbor has been completed. It ib
definitely stated that steps will be
taken at once to extend the railway
to Goal Harbor, and tliere will be
fixed the great wharves and terminal works of the company. We
are sure every person in the province, except those who have large
interests at Port Moody, will be
glad to know that the terminus has
been finally fixed. Many branches
of trade havo been languishing because of the uncertainty wliich existed. People who had money
would not invest it while this uncertainty continued. Tf Mr. Van
Home's notions of the terminal city
were not excessively wild, tliere
must quickly commence a boom at
Coal Harbor such as was never before known iu this province. Mr.
Van Horne said the railway syndicate would spend in terminal works
I and buildings between five and six
millions. The expenditure of this
sum will of itself have a great influence upon business iu British
Columbia, but private enterprise
will also be stimulated. We pointed
out long ago that the chief drawback to advancement at Port Moody
was the uncertainty of its remaining
the terminus. There will be no
such uncertainty at Coal Harbor,
because the terminus cannot go beyond that place. It may be expected, therefore, that people will eagerly
acquire proporty at Coal Harbor
and with confidence proceed to im
prove it und erect permanent buildings. Between tho railway syndicate and private enterprise we look
for a very large amount of work at
Coal Harbor during the coming
year. Employment will l>e furnish
ed to a large amount of skilled labor,
and tho beneficial eflects will be felt
in all branches of trade. We aro
not among tliose who see in this
change of terminus un influence adverse to the interests of Now Westminster. On the contrary, we think
tho nearer the main line comes to
this city the better will it be for
our prospects. It is much better
for us to m practically on the main
line than to bo the terminus of a
branch so near the torminus, Wo
nre of opinion tliat the boom now
beginning to show itself at Goal
Harbor will be of very great advantage to this oity. This should
become the distributing point for
Coal Harbor supplies for some timo
to come at least, and it should receive an impetus during the noxt
year or two whicli will place it far
ahead of any city in the province.
We look forward with the utmost
confidence and hope to the events
which lio before us, and we aro certain theae events will bring solid
pMiperity to those who wisely take
advantage of them,
Cattle Kings.
A great convention of stockmen
met at St. Louis not many days ago
:ind discussed matters pertaining to
tho interests of thoir trade. The
convention was remarkable for several things, but specially for the
amount of capital and Iho audacity
of some of the propositions made.
The stock business has grown in the
western states and territories until
it has becomo a vast and most important industry, and it is growing
still. It is estimated that thero are
now west of the Mississippi 21,943,-
000 oattle, valued at $533,650,871.
The value of cattle slaughtered in
tho United States in 1880 is quoted
at §800,000,000. There are some
individual stockmen and stock associations who are very wealthy.
The Texas Live Stock Association,
for example, holds 845,000,000
worth of cattle. Statistics show
that in some of the states and territories nearly tho whole country is
occupied by the stock. Texas, with
an area of 170 million acres has 119
million acres of grazing landa Arizona is worse, for its whole acreage
is 72 millions and its grazing lands
65 millions, or 90 per cent. Tho
same percentage is found in Montana, in Indian Territory, and nearly
the same in Wyoming. The whole
grazing lands west of the Mississippi
amount to the enormous quantity of
784,667,760 acres! But tho cattle
kings seem disposed to rebel against
the smallness of their heritage They
have not room for the rapidly-increasing herds, and they have let it
become known that they are after
large-sized piece of government
property. It is said that the transportation of cattle from west to east
is both expensive and dangerous—
dangerous because the animals are
very liable to catch disease. For
this reason they propose a scheme
for what is known as a national
trail. This is a tract of land, six or
eight miles wide, extending from a
point in Texas nortii to Canada I
Tlie trail would embrace 25,000,000
acres of land. Most of this laud
belongs to the government, and congress will be askod to hand it over
to the cattle kings. This proposal
is backed up by associations $50,-
000,000 strong. It'is said that
some people in the east are startled
at the magnitude and audacity of
the proposal. But nothing emanating from a monopolist should startle
anybody. The stock business is undoubtedly one of great importance,
but it iB not more so than some
others. Not long ago ono of tliese
stock associations took up a large
quantity of government land for
grazing purposes. The land was in
a square, and comprised only a narrow border or margin enclosing an
immense area. This was enclosed
by fences, and, of course, no outsider could gain access to the interior square! The cattlemen, therefore, occupied the whole territory
because they had acquired lawful
possession of the outside rim. The
stock business in British Columbia
is also an industry of large proportions, and some of thoso who havo
been for any length of time engaged
in it have retired witli comfortable
fortunes. But British Columbia
stockmen are a modest race, and no
one would ever suspect them of contemplating a raid on the publio domain. There is nn incident related
which shows something of the character of the average cattle king, and
how small a circumstance sometimes
determines a large event. It is well
known that St. Louis used to be
the great cattlo centre, and tbat tlie
centre is now at Chicago. The
reason of the cliango is thus explained: When the oattle-growing
business was in its infancy a tall.
gaunt,grizzled, homely-looking party
having mado arrangements for
great cattle-drive to Kansas Oity
and St Louis, called upon one of
tho then St. Louis railroad magnates. He was snubbed by clerks
and stared at by underlings, but
with pants in boots and sombrero
on the back of his head he stalked
by the attendants into the private
ofiiee of the magnate. The big man
looked up aghast at the intrusion.
"Howdy, Captain," said the ranchman. "I thought I'd jes drop in
and see what rate you could give on
cattlo to St, Looey." The big man
appeared more dumbfounded, and,
jumping at a very hasty and damaging conclusion, ho assumed an air
of snobbishness and frigidity, and
told his visitor to tell his employer
to come around, as ho did not do
business with anybody oxcept gentlemen. "I'll mako you and your
town suffer for this," muttered the
disgusted cattle-owner. Two hours
later the Hannibal and St. Joseph
road made the hitrgest contract of
the year to carry several hundred
thousand head of cattle from KanJ
sub City to Chicago, The man induced all his friends to do likewise,
and the action of the railroad magnate directed the main run of cattle
trade for many years to Chicago,

Globe's London correspondent to that
paper, dated ou November 26th, 1884,
says : I undesstand that Mr. Stephen,
ns the result of his present visit, has
ascertained the possibility of establishing a line of steamers to run from
British Columbia to Japun. This can
be done by arrangements either with
existing lines or by building speoinl
steamers for the Canadian Pacific II lt.
Company. On his return to Montreal
a decision will be made as to whioh
course will be adopted by the cumpany
Mr, Stephen represents. It may bo
considered certain, however, that a
steamship lino will be established by
the time the Caniuliaa Pacific Railway
is completed.
Gambling in Paris,-—A Parisian
journal has been making aome inquiries regarding the numbor of gaming
houses and gambling clubs in the capital of civilization, and the amount of
money which changed hands iu them.
If the information bo trustworthy, it is
indeed startling. There are twenty-
four of these tripots in Paris, and between 830,000,000 to $30,000,000 are
computed to have been lost thero during the Inst five years. Tho minimum
profits of the banks are put down at
01,200 daily, and in the leas select
gaming houses nt $200. Taking the
average at §400 per day, the total for
the five years comes out at tbe respectable figure of $17,600,000. Nearly
$12,500,000 are set down ae the five
years "pioking" of the orouplera and
preteurs. Some of those men make
enormous incomes, nnd it is certainly
woll within the mark to put down their
receipts at $20,000 per annum. Then
there is another $500,000 for the ad*
miuistrators and their staffs.
Imperial Federation.—A writer in
the Westminster Review has been figuring up that it covers " nearly ten millions of square milea, or about one-
fifth of the habitable globe; that its inhabitants number 300,000,000, an increase of 100,000,000 within the last
forty years; that ita unrolled armies
number 850,000 men; that ita navy is
manned by 60,000 men ; that its mer*
cantile ships number 30,000, with an
aggregate tonnage of 8 500,000, and
manned by 270,000 sailors ; and that
the estimated valuo of tbe whole is
about £12,460,000,000." These figures
are so enormous as to be absolutely beyond comprehension. But how is this
enormous mass to be welded together

Sabbath-School Anniversary. -
The anniversary services in connection
with tlie Methodist Sabbath School
last Sunday and Monday were unusually interesting. The Sabbath services
consisted of a sermon by the Rev, Co*

singing being conducted bythe children. In tho afternoon there was an
open session of the school, when brief
addresses were made by Messrs. Wm.
Clarkson, James Cunningham, D. S.
Durtis and D. Robson,and the children
sang a number of pieces. On Monday
tho children hnd tea at 6 o'clook V. M.,
after which a lengthy programme wns
given, consisting of dialogues, recitations, juvunilo speeches and solo,,.
quartette and chorus singing by the
school. The programme waB well carried out and Boemed to be received
with groat satisfaction by the large audience which filled the church. Some
of those who took part were extremely
small, and thu manner in which they
performed their Darts produced immense applause. Mr. H. L. DeBeck,
superintendent of tho school, presided;
the music was under the direction of
Mr. T. R. Pearson, and the literary
part under that of Miss Matthews.
Wo believe tho proceeds of tho sale of
tickets amounted to about $75.
The Brown Statue.—The bronze
statue erected at Toronto on the 25th
ult, in memory of the late George
Brown is Baid to bo a fine work of art.
The Globe says it is 10 feet high, and
represents the deceased Senator in the
attitude of declamation. The right
arm hangs at the side, the hand grasp,
ing a scroll. The left arm' hangs
nearly straight, the hand being hold a
short distance from the aide, and
slightly advanced, the fingers pointing
downward ns if a slight and graceful
gestuio was juat being concluded. The
right hint is advanced, and the weight
resting inure upon the left. The pose
is easy and natural, and the effect of
the whole striking and life-like. When
viewed fmm the south-west tho likeness of the deceased Senator is re*
niarkahly good.  Tbe statue restB upon
a short, round pillar of grey granite,
bearing the namo "George Brown" in
relief. Tho pillar, in turn, rests upon
a base mado up of four stones, iho uppermost being circular in shape, nnd
the others octagonal, the bottom one
having a diameter of eight feet 3 inches. The whole pedestal is 11 feot 6
inches high, making the tolal height
of pedestal and statue together 21 feet
6 inches. Pedestal and statue were
designed by tho same artist, Mr. C. B.
Burch, A. R. A., London, England.
The unveiling of this statue was entrusted to Hon. Alex. Mackenzie, and
took place in presence of a large gath-

Groundless Waste. — When the
city council proposed some time ago
to advertise for tonders for the construction of ii railway between this
city and Port Moody, we pointed out
the folly of auch a proposal. The
statements" which had been made by
Mr. Van Home were enough to convince any person that the railway was
going down to Coal Harbor, and it
was not connection with Port Moody
this city wanted, but connection with
tho main line of the 0, P, R. at the
nearest point. It appeared to be very
improbablo 'hat the railway would be
taken down to Coal Harbor by way of
Port Moody, but by way of Burnaby
Lake. The line Mr. Van Horno drow
on the map left the main line a good
many miles frum Port Moody, and the
reasonable presumption was that this
line, or something very near it, would
be adopted. In that event our connecting line would not want to touch
Port Moody at all. We pointed out
that the cost of advertising this scheme
would amount to somo hundreds of
dollars, and the money would be absolutely thrown away. The result has
been as we expected. Accounts have
been recoived from all the newspapers
in which the advertisement appeared,
except the Sentinel, nnd they are as
follows: Sau Francisco Bulletin, $120;
Sun Francisco Chronicle, $120; Viotoria Colonid, $81; Victoria Standard,
$25; Columbian, $14;' Guardian,
$4.80. It is probable the StidineVs
bill will be about $5, whicli will bring
the oost of advertising this scheme up
to the respectable sum of about $370.
This sum has been absolutely thrown
awny, and the council cannot offer a
reasonable   excuse   for   the   foolish
A Cumous Capture,—A well-known
Chinaman was arrested at San Francisco tho other day under circumstances wliich were both peculiar aud
ridiculous. Ho waa a star actor, who
ion the Chinese Btuge had drawn $4,000
a year, and his fame had reached this
side of tho Pacific. But ho had uo
permit, and when ho attempted to land
fiom the Bteamer Arabic the customs
authorities would not permit it. Hoa
Ciiung (for by thia euphonious name he
was known) managed to elude the vigilance of, the officers, however, and
escaped to the shore and disappeared
from view among his countrymen. He
easily found an engagement at the
Chinese theatre in Sau Francisco, for
his reputation was certain to draw a
house. But it wouldn't do for him to
be announced in his real name, because
the discovery of his identity would
lead to hia capture by the customa people. If his true name did not appear
on the bills, however, the attraction uf
his fino reputation would be lost! The
theatre manager billed him under a
name which retained just enough of
the original to identify him in Chinese
eyes as the veritable Hoa Gee Chung.
This identification went further than
had been anticipated, for the officers
caught on to the fact and laid plans
for capture. Ttio night for Hoa's appearance arrivod, and an officer applied
for admission to the theatre. This was
denied. He went and disguised himself and applied again. This time he
was successful. Having satisfied himself beyond doubt that the star actor
waa the man he was looking for, he
made his way to the green room and
arrested him. The manager was completely broken up, and begged the officer to allow Hoa to finish the play or
he would be ruined. This was agreed
to ; but the officer stood on the back of
the Btage and kept an eye on tbe star.
In this he was wiae, for it quickly became evident that Hoa needed watching. When a favorable opportunity
presented itself he made a bolt from
the stage, and tried to escape from the
theatre by a side door. The officer
nearly lost his victim ; but as Hoa wu
just about to leap from the stage the
officer caught his pig-tail and the actor
came up with a jerk. He was dragged
across the stage by the tail, in front of
the whole audience, and conveyed to
more safo quarters. The spectacle was
quite original, and did not appear on
the bills!

Formation of Worlds.
The following is the Globe't report of
a lecture un astronomy, delivered at
Toronto by Prof. R. A. Prootor. the
eminent scientist. The title of the
lecturo was the "Birth of the Solar
System." After referring to tho certainty that the solar system has beea
"developed" to its present condition,
and tho impossibility of determining
how it has been developed, the lecturer
described the wonderfully ingenious
nebular hypothesis of Laplace—how
the vast nebulous mass extending from
the present position of the sun to beyond the orbit of Neptune, rotating its
inconceivable mass, slung off in waves
vast rings, which, finally gathering
around some thicker part, consolidated
into one planet after another, the central core meanwhile diminishing in
volume and increasing in density as it
shrunk finally into what we now know
as the sun. The Satumian system,
ns a small illustration of the imperfect
or yet abortive format inn whioh the
nebular development admitted of, was
alluded to. The difficulties connected
with
laplaob's theory
were briefly alluded to. The theory
of meteoric growth was explained and
many interesting facta stated in regard to meteors that are annually
showered upen tho earth, and interesting speculations indulged in as to what
possible aggregations of meteoric matter may have formed in the past.
While admitting much of the meteoric
theory, Prof, Proctor said it appeared
to fail to account for the origin of the
bodies which form the solar system.
At this stage of the lecture the gas was
turned off, and a gloom like that which
pervaded the solar nebula when it extended to the outmost verge of the solar system filled the hall. Then a series of magic lantern views wore cast
on an immense screen behind the platform. The first was an illustration of
the nebular formation of the system
before the rings slung off by the contracting central orbo had formed into
planets, Tho strange misty rings with
their incipient planets and the great
gloomy vapor solar mass in the centre
mass give an idea of the grandeur of
things celestial, such as few, imaginations venture to picture. Then followed illustrations of various theories of
planet formation, grand in their suggestion of terrific forco. From illustrations of the theories of the origin
of the system, the lecturer went ou to
show what light the appearance uf Jupiter and Saturn threw upon the question of how the solar system originated. The system really consists, said
the lecturer, ot five great bodies, ench
with its attendant planets, the sun occupying the central position, with the
inferior planets out to Mars, as its de-
Sandante.   Jupiter, Saturn,Venus and
'eptuno, are auna in themselves,
HALF-OLOWINO MASSES,
that have not yet consolidated into
planets which can sustain life. Theae
great planets give light and heat to the
worlds revolving around them. The
analogy between the spots and cloud
ringa uf Jupiter were pointed out.
Tho ring system of Saturu aud its process of formation were shown in a series of views accompanied by" copious
explanations. Tho existence of the
asteroids was ascribed to the attractive
influence of Jupiter on the vapor belt,
lying betwixt Jupiter's orbit and that
of Mars. The solar surface, over which
fiery storms uf glowing gases played
with unconceivable velocity, and with
the sound of the cataract, whirlwind
and thunder storm combined, was made
the subject of a few eloquent sentences.
Venus, and the proofs of ita atmosphere, oceans, &c, were briefly com*
mented upon. Mars waa illustrated by
many views, showing tlie great preponderance of its land surface, aa if the
oceans had shrunk away, aud showing
alao tho cloud formations and toe caps,
bo prominent ou that planet. Thu
niuun occupied considerable apace in
the lecture, and the numerous and
grand views, shown ou the canvass, ut
its mountains aud rugged surface, gave
a very vivid idea of the
DESOLATION  OK THAT   ANCIENT   (tl.OUK,
from which, myriads of ages since, the
laat trace of ocean and vf life had faded
away. Thn history uf the sular system,
tho various stages of its development,
as shown in the sun, iu the hnli-fuini-
ed great planets, then iu Mars, later in
the condition uf our earth, and finally
in the dead world, the moon, showed
the progress to fullness uf life and then
to death.   Views of the stellar depths
fiossed rapidly over the canvas, as the
ecturer eloquently drew the picture of
millions of worlds advancing on to desolation aud death, like that of tho
moon. Ho then asked if it were nut

"Mr. Blame, I am not very well acquainted with you, and su I cannot
■peak at freely to yuu as 1 would tu an
old friend, but I fool that I ought to
tell you thnt yuu made a foul of

Blaine answered with a sigh : " I

Charlie Ross Again.
St. Catharines, Nov. 21.—A young
lad about 15 years old, light hair and
complexion and blue eyes, was brought
to the Journal olheo on Thursday afternoon by two men, named Thomas
Wright, uf Port Dnlhousie, and Isaao
Kingston, of thia city. These men
stated that in their opinion and from
what they had seen and known of the
boy, that he ia tho long lost and much
sought for son of Walter Ross, of Philadelphia. The boy, on being qestion-
od, says that he believes he is 14 or IG
years of age. His first recollection is
of playing in Philadelphia with a boy
named Anderson, who lived near his
parents' residence. He saya that his
own namo is Charlie Ross. He was
taken away from his home by a gipsy,
who was called John Fleets, in a covered wagon, and given something that
set him asleep. After travelling a considerable time he crossed a long bridge,
which ho now believes was the Niagara
Suspension Bridge. He remained with
the gypsies for four or five years and
finally ran away from them near London, Ont., on account of ill-treatment.
He then wandered about tho country,
working for various people in various
places, and fur a year or two past in
thia  neighborhood, amongst his em*
{iloyers being Messrs. Newman and
laid, of PoBt Dalheusio, and Mr*Vine,
of this city. Mr. Kingston, of thia
city, had seen the hoy with gypsies,
and learning that Iub name was Charles
Robs took an internet in him, and both
he an* Mr.'Wright believe that he la
the veritable and long lost Charlie Rosa.
Tho boy saya that the gypsies marked
him with a hot needle on hia chin, they
scarred him with a letter on his thumb,
and a letter Y and a straight mark on
one foot. The boy is now in charge of
Mr. Wright, of Port Dalhousie, who
will maintain him until such time as
Mr. Rosa, of Philadelphia, can be communicated with.

residing In the vicinity of No. 4 slope,
operated by the Susquehanna Coal Company at Naticoke, were greatly alarmed

Paris, Dec. 2.—An official bulletin of
the Panama Canal Company gives a resume of the statements of Commander
Gorringe, formerly of the United States
Navy, which were published some time
ago in America, giving the result of his
inspection of the work on the canal up to
July nf this year. At that time only
one-seventeenth part of the actual out-
ting of the canal was finished, while the
expenses so far incurred amount to one-
sixth of tho estimated total outlay. Commander Gorringe concluded that the
canal will eventually cost $120,000,000
and will be completed at the latest by
January I, 1800. The American contractor, Nathaniel McKay, reports 20,-
000 natives of the Caribee Islands employed in piercing tho isthmus. They
are mostly occupied in cutting immense
trenches through the hills, which will be
carried down to a love) with the ocean.
When that work is finished, and the

Paris, Pee. 2,—-There were targe sales
te-day of Panama canal shares, the result of President Arthur's statement to
the American Congress relative to the
Nicaraugua treaty.
Dublin, Dec 2.—The Freeman's Jour-
nid considers the redistribution bill an
equitable measure, and soys Gladstone
has fulfilled his pledge to Ireland. The
Kutionalists will now probably he able
to elect some members in England. The
Irish Times rejoices that tho leaders of
both parties were wise enough to create
no new Irish grievance.
London, Dec. 2.—The Irish party is
divided in support of tho redistribution
bill. The threatened coalition of Tory
and Liberal discontents has been found
impossible, and thore appears to be no
common basis of action for them. All
opposition to the bill is fast disappearing,
and the secoud reading ie oxpected Friday. Parliament will adjourn on Saturday.
London, Dec. 2.—-It is reported that
Abram 8. Hewitt, of New York, will be
the probable successor of Minister Lowell. The Pall Midi Gazette nays that
Hewitt's eminent position as a philanthropist and hia free trade views fit him
exceedingly for the position, hut whoever comes to England wilt find Lowell a
very difficult man to succeed. Lowell
maintains a close reserve upon the question of his retirement from tlie embassy.
Berlin, Dec. 2.—The committee to
which waa referred tlie proposed navigation laws for the Congo river, placed
them for revision in the hands of a subcommittee representing Euglaqd, France,

Panama, Dec, 2.—There arc revolutionary murmurings throughout the interior, and should a disturbance occur In
Cuaca a general conflict is expected. The
revolutions in Panama and San Leander
have terminated. The general govern
ment have mortgaged the mint in Bogota
to raise $50,000. O'Leary has written
the secretary of the treasury from London, stating that however advantageous
may be the proposals Colnmbia may
make for loans for.the construction of
railroads or other public works, it will
be impossible to obtain money in England
until satisfactory arrangements nave
been reached with its former creditors.
Another revolution is in progress in
Equador. General Alfero left here on
the 16th Ult. with about 2000 Equadorlan
exiles in the steames Alajueta purchased
the day previous. The steamer went to
Esmeralda, where Gen, Alfero was most
enthusiastically received. Ho has an
abundant supply of munitions, and his
cannon and Gatbng guns are of the latest
pattern. He iB beloved throughout the
Republic, and it is probable that he will
obtain the Presidency at the coat of very
little bloodshed. Alfero is the leader of
the Liberal party, aud undoubtedly, if
he is successful, church and state will at
once be separated, and religious toleration
will be established for the first time in
the history of the Republic.   The Ala-
i'ueta was attacked in Columbian waters
iy the Ecuadorian man-of-war Santa
Lucia, but repulsed the attack. The
United States steamer Shenandoah has
sailed from Callao for MoIIendo, Pern,
to inquire into the facts connected with
one of Carceres' arbitrary acts. An
American steamer carried a cargo of
guano from Hu .cho to Molendo. The
guano, which has been Bold by the Igle-
sias government, was security for the
freight, which had to be paid. Carceres'
authorities claimed the guano as national
property, and ordered its sale on his ac*
count. The captain of the shin protested
te the Legation at Lima, and tlie Shenandoah has gone to make inquiries.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
A spark of animation and now lifo
had lighted up in Mrs. John's oyes.
It was not a very elevated kind of
hope, perhaps, yet no hopo that ia
centered in the success of anothor can
bu altogether ignoble. She wanted to
see her child nappy; Bhe wanted Hester to have her chanco, as Ellon said.
That she should be scon and admired
and made much of was, Mrs. John
felt, the first object in her life. It
would not bo without somo cost to
'herself, but she did not shrink from
the idea of .the lonely evenings ahe
would have to spend, or tho separation that might enBuo, Her mind,
which was not a groat mind, jumped
forward into an instant calculation
of how the evening drosses could be
got—at what sacrifice of ease or comfort.
She did not shrink from this, whatever it might be. Neither did sho let
nny visionary pride stand iii her way
as Hester did,. She whb ready to forgive, to forget, to condouo all offenses
—and in the loug discussion uud argument that followed, Mrs. John was
almost more eloquent than Elleu on
tho mutual advantages of tho contract.
She saw them all the imtnnt they were
set beforo her. She waB quite tremulous with interest and expectation.
She ran over with approval and beaming admiration ns Ellen unfolded her
plans. "Oh, yeB, I can quite utidur-
Btand: you want to strike out something original," cried Mrs. John.
"You must not think I agree with
Hester about Catherine's parties. I
think Catherine's parties are very nice;
and relations, you know, must expect
to give way to strangers, especially
when thoro are not enough of gentlemen; but it will he much ploasanter
for you to strike out something original. I ahould havo liked it when I was
in your circumstances, but I don't
think I had the energy. And I am
sure if Hester can be of any use-
On, my darling! of course you will
like it very much. You always are
ready to help, and you havo plenty of
energy—far more than I ever had—
and so fond of dancing, too; and
thore are so few dances in Red borough.
Oh yes, I think it is a capital plan,
Ellen! and Hester will be delighted
to help you. It will be such an opening for her," Mrs. John said, with
tears of pleasure in her eyes,
Hester did not say much while the
talk ran on. She was understood to
fall into the scheme, nnd that was all
that was necessary. But when Ellen,
after a prolonged visit and a detailed
explanation to Mrs. John, which she
received with the greatest excitement
and interest, of all her arrangements
ns to the music, the suppers, and
every other particular they could think
of between them, roso to take her
leave, she put her hand within Hester's arm and drew her aside for a fow
confidential words.
"Don't think of coining to the
door," sho said to Mrs, John; "it is
so cold you must not stir. Hester
will see me out. There is one thing
I must say to you, dear," she added,
raising herself to Hester's ear when
they wero out of the mother's hearing, "and you are not to take it amiss.
It' must be a condition beforehand—
now please) Hester, mind and don't be
offended. You must promise me that
you will have nothing to say to either
of the boya."
The quick Hush of offense sprang to
Hester's face,
"I don't know what you mean.
You mean something you have uo
right to say, Ellen!"
"I have a very good right tu Bay it
■ —for I'm a married lady and you are
only a girl, and of course I must know
best. You are not to have anything
to say to the boys. Any one else you
like I am sure I don't mind, but will
do anything I can to help—but not
the boys. Oh, I know something
about Harry, I know you hnvo hod
the sense to— Woll, I don't understand how far it went, but I suppose
it must have gone as far as it could go,
for he's not clever enough to be put
off with anything less than a real No.
But you may have changed your mind,
or a hundred things might hnppon.
And thon there's Edward: Aunt Catherine would be wild if anything got
up between you and Edward, I never
said so, the only thing is, you must
promise me to have nothing to say to
them. There are plenty of others-
much better mutches aud more eligible;
und it's always a pity to have anything
to say to a cousin in that way. You're
sure to set the family by the ears; and
thon it narrows the connection, and
you keep always the same name, and
there are ever so many drawbacks.
So just you promise me, Hester,
there's a dear—nover," said Ellen,
seizing her with both hands and giving
her a sudden, perfumy kiss, "nevor"
—and the salute was repeated on tlm
other cheek—"to have angthing to Bay
to the boys—"
"The boys! If you think I care
anything for tho boys! I shall hnvo
nothing to say to anybody," cried
.Hester, with indignation, drawing
herself out of this too urgent embrace. Ellen tossed back all her
bracelets and shook her golden locks
and her seal-skin hat, and made an
agitation in the air of scent and sound
und movement.
"Oh, that's being a great deal too
good," she cried.
Hester stood at the door, and looked
on while Mrs. Algernon got into hor
victoria and drew the fur rug over hor
and was driven away, waving the hand
and the bracelets in a parting jingle.
The girl %aa not enviouB, but half
contemptuous, feeling herself iu her
.., poverty, as . much superior to this but-
'' terflj in furs and feathers as pride
could desire. Heater did littlo credit
to the social gifts, or the popularity or
reputed cleverness iu hur own way, of
her gay cousin who had boon the inspiration of Harry and now wns the
guide of Algernon Merridow. Sho
said to herself, with the downrightiiesB
of youth, that Ellen wns a little fool.
■ But her own cheeks wore blazing with
this parting dart whioh had been
thrown at her.
The boys! Sho had a softened feeling of amity toward Harry, who had
done all a stupid young man could do
to overcome the sentence of disapproval under which Hestor was awaro she
lay. It had been embarrassing and
uncomfortable, and had made her anything but grateful at the moment; but
! V now she began to feel thnt Harry had
■ f. indeed behaved like a man, and dono
all' that a man could to remedy her
false position and give her a substantial foundation for tho native, indomitable pride that none of thom could
crush, though they did their best.
No j ahe would have nothing to sny to
Harry. Sho shook her head to lu-r-
self and. laughed at the thought, all
in ihe silence of thu verandii, whore
ahe itood hazily gazing out through
the dim greenish glass at Ellen, long
after Ellen had disappeared. But Edward! thnt was u different matter altogether. She would give nu word so
far us ho was concerned. Edward was
altogether different from Harry. He
piqued uud excited hor curiosity; he
kept her mind in a tremor of interest.
She could not cease thinking of him
when ahe was in his neigborhood,
wondering what he would do, what he
would sny. And if it did make Catherino mid, as Ellen said, that wns but
au inducement tho more in Hester's
indignant soul. She had no wish to
plense Catherino Vornon. There had
not been any lovo lost between them
from the first, and Healer waa glad to
think she was not ono of those who
had in any way pretended to her kinswoman's favor. She had never sought
Catherino, never bowed the knee before her.
When sho went to the Grange it hnd
been against her will, as a matter of
obedience to her mother, not to Catherine. If it mnde Catherine wild to
think that thore was a friendship or
uny other sentiment botween Edward
and the girl whom she had so slighted,
thon let Catherine be wild. Tliat was
no motive to restrain Heater's freedom uf action. All this passed through
her mind as she stood in the veranda
in thu cold, gazing after Ellen, long
after Ellen was out of sight. There
were many things which gave her a
sort of attraction of repulsion to Edward. He had triod to deceive Roland
Ashton nbout her, telling him sho was
about to marry Hnrry, when ho knew
very well sho had refused to marry
Harry. Why had he done it? And
in his manner to herself Edward was
two men. When they were alone lie
was more than friendly; he was tender,
insinuating, anxious for her approval,
eager to unfold himself to her. But
when he saw her in the Grange
drawing-room ho never went near
her.
In early times she had asked why,
nud he had answered with deceiving
words—asking how she thought he
could bear to approach her with commonplace civilities when she was the
only creature in the place for whom ho
cared at nil; a speech which had
pleased Hester at first ns something
high-flown and splendid, but which
had nut preserved ita effect as time
wont on; for sho could not see why he
should not be civil and show some regard for her presence, even if he could
not devote himself to her. And why
could he not devote himself to her?
Because it would displease Catherino.
When Catherine was not present, there
wbb nobody for him but Heater.
When Catherine was tliere, he wna unconscious of her existence. This, of
course, should have shown clearly to
Hester that he was not worthy of her
regard, and to some degree did bo;
but the conviction was mingled with
so lively a curiosity in respect to him,
so strong an opposition ub regarded
her, that Hesters mural judgment
was confused altogether.
Sho was anxious, eager to overcome
her adversary, excited to know what
Edward's meaning was. He would
not stand up for her liko a true friend,
but at the samo time he would never
let her alone, he would still let her see
that she was ih his mind. She disliked him, yot— Shu almost lovod
him, but atill— Nothing could be
more tantalizing, more entirely unlike
indifference. To think of meeting
Edward in society, yet not under
Catherine's eye, mado her henrt beat
loudly. She had never done this hitherto. Sho had met him by chance on
the Common or in the country roads
nbout, and his voice had boen almost
that of lover. She had met him beforo the world, and he hod acarcoly
seemed to know her. But how could
these meetings test what hu meant?
This it was that made Ellen's proposal exciting, even while sho horself
half scorned it. Harry? no! Poor
Harry! she would not disturb his
peace, nor say n word, nor even look
n look which ahould put him iu jeopardy. But Edward?—ah! that wus a
different matter. It was with all the
vehemence of a quarrel that alio
snatched at the chance put into her
hands, even when she had seemed to
Bcorn it. To know avhnt he meant—
to know what was his real state of
mind! If he wuuld bo afraid of what
the world would say—in that case
there was no scorn which Hester did
not feel heraelf capable iit pouring
out upon her unworthy admirer; but
if things proved different? Ah! then
sho did not know what softening, what
yielding, she might not be capable of.
The very thought molted her heart.
And yet sho had thought herself
more "interested" (this was what she
called it) in Roland Ashton than in
nny man whom ahe had ever heard of
beforo. The world hnd seemed all
blank to her when he went away. Hia
step ut the door had made her heart
thrill; tho commonplace day had
brightened up into something smiling
uud sweet when he camo in. But
then she had been fighting a duel with
him half hur life as she had been doing
with Edward. She.was not curious
to know what Rolund ineapt. She
thought (with a blush) that she did
know—moro or leas—wjhat he meant.
But Edward wns a sort uf sphinx -ho
was an enemy to be beaten, a riddle to
be read. She said to herself, what
would please her best would ho to
forco .him into self-abandonment, to
carry him so uut of himself, that he
should give up all pretousoB und own
himself nt hor disposal, und then to
turn her baok upon him and acorn him.
Would she have done bo? She thought
shu would, and thnt in this lay the
secret of hor interest in Edward and
his crooked ways. Shu would see what
was his true mottle, she would be ablo
indeed to judge of him now.
"Hostor," aaid Mrs. John, appearing at the open door, "what do you
mean hy lingering in the oold to got
your death 1 Vou will be chilled to
your very bones. You have not evon
u shawl ou and in this cold place,
Whnt are you doing? I have cnlled
you three times and you novor pnid
any attention. Even to stand here
for five minutes freezes inc."
"Thon don't stand here, mamma,"
said Hester, taking hold of her mother's
arm and thus leading her back in the
old wny. Thoy did not walk about
very much together now. Hester preferred her own thoughts to her mother's society, and Mrs, John waa not
sorry to be left quietly by herself at
the fireside. How long it seemed
niucu tho time when she held her
mother's nrm clasped in hers whenever
she moved, und used it as n helm to
guide that timid and trustful woman
wherever Bhe would! A little compunction came over her ns sho made uso of
thut well-known expedient ngain, and
steered her mothor (all the more gently
for that thought) hack to her, own
chair.
