. Our eihlgratloii retornJ are rather
misleading, atiiee eVery1 Aiberioaii or
colonist *^' goeV-hdme, every foreigner who comes through England
on a t/eitern or tbathern journby,
every Englishman who croeset the
Atlantlo or the Bay of Biicay, is
aet down as an "emignint" Oh the
other hand, every person who arrives from aerose the tea (Europe
alweys excepted) ia set down te an
"immignuit" All our American
visitors era thus put in both categories. They tre immigrants when
they oome, and emigrants when
tbey go. An Englishman who visits
Atr Vtstitti Btatee is an emigrant
;r [whfrt' he leaves and an immigrant
wheh lie returns. This is not the
common idea either of an emigrant
or of an immigrant. When the publio read thtt last year there were
330,601 emigrants, they think what
vait numben tee rushing, away to
find new homes in other lands; when
they Dud that there have been in
the aame period 108,876 immigrants,
they art ponied that suoh multitudes oome to find new homes with
us. But the figures are misleading.
Our real immigrants—German and
others—who come to our great
towns, are not counted tt all The
balance of emigration over immigration it given ta 221,922; but of
theae only 182,882 were of British
origin, and the . return speakt of
that number tt giving die "net emi-
;gration proper." It would, perhaps,
not be possible lo °».t at the aotual
number of real emigrants, but'' the.
figures- teem to shew that- they ire
less thin half the number of passengers who leave our shores for
places eut'of Europe, In considering the emigration and surplus labor
questions three facta ought tobe
borne in mind.—Colonies and India.

The Policy of Disallowance.
For some -time put the people of
Mtnitoba and the Northwest have
been considerably exercised over the
question of the disallowance of provincial railway oharters. It is said
thafc-thev. A i, a^MMgtetim elected
, for Manitoba at the recent election
tre irmly -pledged to oppose the polioy heretofore pursued in that respect It the ditousaion that has
grown oat of the universal feeling
againtt .the. monopoly clause of the
0, Tf. R. charter we notice that all
principal authorities take exactly
the game view of the meaning and
extent, of the clause as that taken
by Uie Oolummas iri its controversy
with the Vancouver Herald. The
Mtnitoba Sun affirms that the
power to disallow provinoial char-
ten oannot be applied to that part
of Mtnitoba that wis included in
the provincial boundaries at the
tine of. issuing the charter. Speaking on the ume subject the Toronto
Olob* puts the case very plainly and
follow! precisely the line for which
the Coicmbian contended. It lays:
"Manitoba existed before the bar
gain was made, tnd under the terms
of union, each province has full legislative authority for the construction
of rtUwiyt between iny points within iti borders. The government
hive exercised the power of disallowing Manitoba oharters as an tot
of policy, and are free to change
their policy tt any timn without re
gird to the 0. P. R. Instead of
being bound by, the bargain to disallow, the tratti ia the government
got'the bargain through parliament
by binding themselves riot tb disallow."' In proof of this the Globe
quotes ihi declaration of Sir John
Maodooald, made tt the time, '-We
cannot check Mtnitoba;" and also
the statement of Hon. Thos. White:
"Thu provision does not take away
from Mtnitoba t single right it pos-
settet. In fict ibis parliament
could not tike away these rights. It
hu the aame rights ts the other
province! for the incorporation of
railway companies within the boundaries of the province itself, tnd
there ii nothing to prevent the provinoe' of Mtnitoba from chartering
l nilway from Winnipeg to the
boundary to connect with tny southern railway. The only: guarantee
which this company hat under the
contract il thtt thi traffic ahall not
be tipped far west on the prairie
section, thus diverting the trufllo
away from their line to a foreign
line. Bat there ii nothing to prevent I railway being built-in Manitoba, within the province, that
would ctrry the traffic to my rail
way that may Up it from the
American Aide." This bears out entirely the attitude of the Columbian
towards disallowance, and furnishes
evidence thtt it was perfectly right
in maintaining that the monopoly
clause of the 0. P. R. agreement
applied to the unorganized territory
between Mtnitoba and Britiih Oolumbia, aaid to that alone. Disallowance, aa we pointed out, wai
entirely .optional with the government iri as far as provincial charters
are concerned; or, as the Qlobe puts
it, it wis t mire "matter of policy"
whieh may be changed whenever
the public interest demands; The
remtrki made by Ron. Mr. White
respecting Manitoba, at quoted
above, apply with equal force to
BriHaft Columbia. At the time of
the ratification of the 0. P. R
agreement this province wash-tie*
peatknt, and it never surrendered
ill iiglil In glial local railway charter* The Herald held that because
tht British Oolumbia representative! at Ottawa offered no protest
against Hii cltiue, its application
to tbla proviuce becomes pouible.
Tlee dee* net follow. 'Ihe declare
tkau of Sir John Maedonald and
othtyt -were sufficient to inure the
that thia monopoly clause
I set extend to either Mtnitoba
b Columbia.   Besides, our
_ stivM   in the  Dominion
ptrUanent have no power to take
away the* privilege! secured to us
under the oonttitution. When the

A Brand New Story ofOeor*»WtlhlnijH-n.
When George Washington was a.
small boy and about thai ome he carried on his lumbering operations In his,
father's orchard he heard tbe old gentleman say he wished to get a good bird
dog.
Shortly after that George succeeded
ln stealing a common yellow dog of a
neluhbor, and knowing the governor
was uot well posted on dogs offered to
sell it to him for fitly cents with which
to go to the circus.
"la lt a hunter, "asked the grandfather
of his country.
" Yis," replied George. i

The next day George crawled under
tha tent of the Great Oolonlal Cnittd
Circus and Menagerie and spent the half
dollar for pop corn bricks.
About a week after his father discovered that the dog did not know a bird
from'a wheel-barrow, and shortly after
was about to bring a mule harness trace
into active uso on his son and heir,
"I thought you said that dog was
a hunter—a genuine setter?" he demanded.
" Father, I cannot Ml a lie,'
the young hopeful, "Itlsahunl

'•no English phyeiolaB-pernipe, indeed,
none of any country—since the time of
Harvey has effected not only so great
an advance ln the knowledge of particular diseases, but also so great a revolution in our habits of thought and methods ot Investigating morbid phenomena
and tracing the ethlology of disease."
Richard Bright was ihe son of a
Bristol banker, and was born in 1780.
Like Addison, he studied at Edinburgh,
and   subsequently   acoempanied   81
Returning from Iceland, Bright began
hospital work at Guy'* Hoapltal ln
Lonuon,' and attended Sir Attley Cooper's lectures. These attracted him to
pathology and post-mortem observations, aud these again led him to that
consideration of one of the morbid conditions of the kidneys whioh he did so
, muoh to elucidate.
But prior to this discovery he returned
to Edinburgh and completed his studies
under - the famous Gregory. Then he
passed two termsatCtmbrldge, travelled
-oh the continent, attended medical lectures at Berlin and Vienna, and published a book ot "Travels in Hungary." . ■'■'
All this Impllej that he wss well supplied with money, which Was ln fact tfie
case. But the absence df pecuniary Impetus did not dull hts professional ardor,
and when he returned to London he
•resumed Ale Work with Industry.
In 1830 he began practice and rapidly
took a high position, but for six hours
every day he continued tor years to pursue his post-mortem investigations at
Guy's. He was not simply a specialist

Qf course if a man loses a leg*0r

he must leave tha service, unless a

the chances are that lt Is not heard ot

such accidents ot a serious nature that
occur In this.State (New York) must
be reported to the Railroad Commissioners.
It has been calculated from figures

Colonial hotol, New Westminstor, and
entera into possession on the lst of
April. While not quettioning the excellent management ogjjthe Colonial
under the. proprietorship of Mr. J.
Insley, wo feel confident that Mr.
Pither'i indomitable energy and tact
u a hotel man will bring the Colonial
up to a high ttandard in all ita departments and give to Now Westminster a
hostelry of the very highest order.
It is the intention of the new proprietor to make extensive alteration! and
improvements, taking in the itorei in

office, and sitting and rending rooms.
—Colonist.
Laniilkt Chuhch.— Tho subscription for the propoud ohurch on Langley Prairie, it progresiins very favorably, being now upward! of 1400. It.
ii muoh to be doiired that the requisite sum, about 81,400, should be received, so that building operations
might lw commenced this summer or
fall. As our readen may be aware, a
beautiful site has been presented by
Mr. James Gray, on the banks of the,
Nicomekl river, and we hep* soon to
be able to record tha conseoratioh,
both of the land and church. But thii
will depend more upon the liberal assistance ef the parishibnere, than upon
the exertons of the clergyman, and
one or two ohurch people. Possibly if
all would make a pull, a long pull, and
a strong pull togothor, one of tlie most
beautiful sottltmonts in the provinco,
watered by a romantic and navigable
river, Uie Nicomekl, would soon be no
longer without a ohuroh, a privilege
now somo time enjoyed by the neighboring settlement, tn the banks of the
Serpentine river in Surrey,—Chnrcli-

"I am usiog this medicine Wr Dyspejsl..
I have tried rn»iryreirtdk»,'buitMll1s

Liquid fuel hu made during Iho laat
few diyi s fresh tdvsncc in European
waters, the sailing vessel Protektsii,
fitted with tanks, hiving irrived tt
Odesu with 900 tout of petroleum
refuse, which wis at once purchased
for various Russian factories there
hitherto using, English ooal. The
consignment wss from tht Caucasus
port of Novorossiak, where petroleum
refuse hll bwh soiling for some time
put at about 18a. per ton. As by
means ot the Russian furntcet in uie
a toil of oil refuse goes as far as two
torn of English coal, the latter it altogether out of the running at Odesu;
and we rosy expect in coniequence to
•tt a considerable development of the
new enterprise. We ourselves, in discussing tha futuro ot hvuid fuel, have
always expretiod the opinion that iti
uu would spread gradually from the
Caspian to the Blaok sea, and thence
to the Mediteinnein and the Eut, in
tdvtnceof any sudden and sweeping
•uccess tt home prognosticated by en-
thuiiutio inventon iu thii oountry.
Up to now thit view hu been justified by event!,
Liquid fuel hu made very littlo
headway in England, where it haa to
compete with cheap coal, while it has
not only been adopted by a number of
Vessels running betweon Batum and
-Odesu, at both of which ports coal is
dear, but hu at length been adopted
alto by factories at Odesu, In all
probability, now that s start has been
made iu conveying oil .rofuso in bulk
in the Black Sea, tlio enterprise will
extend, and before long successors to
the Protektsia may be conveying it to
the Mediterranean ports. The fact that
the Russians should have mode this
start themselves shows that they ure
not dependent upon English capital
and enterprise in thit inatter. Novor-
ossiik ii the outlet of tlie Black Sea
petroleum fields, and now, that the
railwap through them is nearly finished, a copious supply of oil is becoming
available fpr steamers. A telegram to
the Kasikas statei that of the two tunnels delaying the opening of the line,
one is finished and the other will be
completed by April. Tlie railway will
then be finished throughout, and English coal will experience a formidable
rivalry in tho Black Soa region. It is
unnecessary th discuss here which will
prove the bettor fuel; the fact remains
that the Russians prefer petroleum
fuel to Engliah coal, and that the use
of liquid fuel is making rapid headway
in SoUtheut Europe.- Engineersng.
