Egyptian Affairs.
Sir Samuel Baker ought to uniler-
otantl the inner life of Egypt, and
he haa given it as hio opinion that
Britain must take tbe management
of that country or let it go to the
doge, JC aMII«r'opro<>«''still-he
found to prevail ve.y generally. Tf
the British conclude to abandon
the Soudan to the false prophet, it
will opeeilily become the hot-bed of
the slave tiade which wassu ptesaed
through British. influence. Thia
could not long be permitted, and it
io extremely doubtful if any nation
but Britain would attempt to offer
effective resistance to the human
traffic, For many years Egyptian
affairs seem to have been drifting
towards a crisis. Great B.-ita'ip and
France hold a mortgage on the country for large sums, and it is not
likely they will permit it to fall
iuto the bands of a hostile power.
Bnt until a very radical change ean
be made iu tbe plan of government,
the financial condition cannot be
materially improved, Turkish rule
Is the rule of extortion. The gov.-
ernor who succeeds in bleeding the
poor tax payers most effectually is
the man who commends himself to
the good will of the khedive. Egypt
is by no means destitute of natural
resources, and, if decently governed,
would become wealthy. Nuoar
Pacha, tbe new ptiine minister, who
same into office a short lime ago, is
ft man of great experience and re-
sources, and it is hoped tbat under
hio administration substantial reforms moy be inaugurated. According lo the New Yo>k Hcrnld, be is
an Armenian Christian, and waa
educated in England. He is suid to be
as familiar with the leading Euro-
pean languages as with those of the
east, and though his domestic life
and his p.-aonal habits are those of
■n English gentleman, be is aa keen
a master of all the arts and intii-
cacies of Oriental statecraft as ever
managed tbe complicated relations
of the Ottoman Forte itself with
the infidel world. In 1850 lit secured for tbe then vicoroy of Egypt,
Abbas Paclia, during a special mission to England, tbe recognition of
his quasi independence of the Sultan, until which all the fain <c of
Egyptian power and prosperity lies
eince heen built up. The construction of the S-iez canal wasfurtheietl
by hia skilful co-ojiccatio'i f-om the
serf fit st, a'id to bis persoiul influence ab E'opoau coutts ns well

out of the important reforms in t'-e
oonsc'ar jurisdiction in Ejrpi, for
wb-ph be b'gan lo nejoiiaie in 181)7,
and which we. e <.ouHnm,naied about
five yea -s ago. He it was, too, wbo,
as minister of publio works, gave
Egypt ber rew iottdstnen of cotton
ftnd stiga'-, aid fi st pushed the conquests of tbe Khedive into the far
south. For a long time he bad held
the portfolios both of Coinme.ee u»d
Foielgn Affairs, when he was and
dsi'lf dismissed iu disg:a.-r. Buf
Ismail Pacha soon found it impo.-
Bible to get a'ong without hiui, a.d
in June, 1875, be was recalled. In
January, 1876, however, be was
forced to lealgn by the hosl'le
course of tbe Khedive in aeparatii g
the potlfolios of Foreign Affairs and
Oommetce. He resided in Eurona
lor a couple of yean, hilt In 1878
wat leoalled by tbe Khedive, who
(gain made him piemier and minister of fereign affairs and of justice.
Thio otep was only taken as a last
despetale resort te waid off the
couiplele overturning with which
the viceregal government waa ut
that time threatened. Nubar at
thtt. time did what he could to.
ward inaiigniatlng tbe reforms in
the Egyptian adminiotration wbioh
were imperatively demanded by the
European creditor! of the country.
If ho oucceedo in rescuing Egypt
from financial collapse, it can only
be with British assistance. If he
cannot, tht only alternative seems
to lie tor Biilain to take charge of
Egyptian affairs and reorganize the
wholt tdminstratlon with a Arm
hand. Under British rule Egypt
would ooon become a paradise compared with what It is now,

English and French Justice.
If, in France, I man it accused of
atoaling a watch, the Judge il'In.(motion invariably says to him: "The best
thing you eon do lo to moke a full con-

stealing ft watch; prove tlmt you nre
innocent." In England 'ihe accused
person is told: "Yuu are chained with
Bteahng a walah; you have nothing to
say, we shall have to prove it.' Such
are the two different manners of \vo-
ceeding. No inquisition in tbe stupe
of private examination. No prevention-—tliat is to say that, eicept in
grave cases, the prisoner is liberated
un ball. He appears before a magistrate, in public, the very day aftet liis
arrest. If hu makes a full confession,
the magistrate advises him to rosorvo
his defence and to plead not guilty.
He is not made to undergo auy examination, and it is preferred that lie
Bhould not admit his guilt, in order
that by independent evidence| the
charge may be brought home to lum,
Besides, it is quite common hen fo see
people giving themselves up to justieu
and assorting that they have committed
some crime. It is a very frequent
mania- When any case of mtrtder remains obscured in mystery all the
drunkards take it into their heads that
they committed it, and they go and
give themselves up to the police. Au
inquiry is mnde and they are set at
liberty. The examination of the witnesses is done by counsel. The
judge presides over the proceedings; he acts as moderator. Tlie
prisoner is quietly seated in the
dock; he listens; the pour witnesses pass an uncomfortable quarter
of an hour in tne hands of the lawyers.
In order that the jury may not be influenced by tbe antecedents of the
primmer, if they should bo bad, no
reference to them is permitted. If he
is found guilty, a member of the police
comes forward to prove that the prisoner list already undergone several
sentences, and then the judge applies
the full rigor of the law. As to the
witnesses, every effort is mnde to show
that their evidence is uot trusl worthy.
The most incongruous queBiious are
put to them. Woe betide them if there
exists any page in their past life that
they would fain keop secret: "Are you
married to the man you live with V a
woman may be asked. "Are you a
faithful wife 1 Is it not a fact that you
are addicted to drinatug/" Bhe has to
answer all this. There are some who
get angry over it, and the audience
enjoy the fun.— John Unit and his Island, Max O'Neil,
How the Lei? Grew On.
An old fellow from Bear Wallow
vJBited the Executive office the other
day to talk with tiie governor and secure something to "blow about in his
neighborhood.
"Gome in," said a pleasant-look ing
gentleman.
"Are you the Governor ?"   *
"Yes, sir."
"Wall, thon, I've alius boen mistaken about you. I had liuuid thai

such a performance, but nfler a while
I decided to await developments. The

few days, and I thought Hint ihu resurrection busiue-JB wiih unlirsly suspend-

"Did you talk to nuy of the doctor.-*

"It may uot have seemed strange tu

"It did to me at lirst, but I Boon got

that when a man is elected Governor
■if Arkaniaw lie will soon get used tu a
number of things he never heard of
before."
"Now when I go home and tell the
folks that the Governor's leg has grow*

don't think anythiu' impossible with
him, but when I tell 'em that I've seen

"I'll do It, sir," and the receipt was
drawn up and signed. Greatly elated,

Educational Favoritism.
Somo correspondence was laid bo
fore tho legislature last week referring to certain irregulavties which
occurred at the Juno examinations
for admission to the Victoria high
icliool.     Attention  was first culled
to   these irregularities by the Victoria Post, and the govornment promised an investigation.   The correspondence  shows  that   nine pupils
from Victoria public schools wero
admitted to high school standing nt
these examinations, of  whom only
three obtained tho requisite number
of marks,     Mr.  0. 0. MoKenzie,
M. A., superintendent of education,
admits that  tbo responsibility for
the admission of the six who failed
rests entirely upon him.     Tho papers were marked (or at least some
of them) by Mr. OfferlniUB, second
teacher in tho higli school.     The
ground upon which the superintendent  excuses  liis action in passing
these six to the high school is that
lie considered the marking of Mr.
Ofierhaus too strict, and that there
was not room in tho public school
for all the pupils.   Mr.   OlTerhuus
replies that  bis marking was fair
and just, and  that if it had been
too severe it was the obvious duty
of    the   superintendent    to   mention   the   matter to him,   which
was not dono.   The defence taken
by the superintendent of education
seems to ub altogether insufficient.
A certain standard has been fixed
for pupils seeking admission to the
high school.    It is not claimed that
this standard is too serere.   At the
last examination  in   the Victoria
schools three pupils came up to the
standard and six failed.    But tlie
superintendent  passed   tho   whole
batch, and says the  marking was
too severe!    Such a practice must
result  in   complete demoralization
to the pupils and the schools, and
leaves the superintendent open to
the charge of favoritism   whether
lie is guilty or not.   An examination properly conducted, us this one
seems  to have been, should not be
set  aside or interfered  witli upon
any such frivolous pretexts as those
set up by the superintendent of education.    To do so would open the
door to tho  grossest abuses.     It
looks very much like un attempt to
bolster   up  Victoria   high   school
at a time when thero were rumors
of its possible disendowment by the
government, and u minister of education  who would loud himself to
Buch an unworthy proceeding is deserving of censure.
Government Grants.
On Satnrday we briefly announced
that   the government bad made a
conditional grant of $4,500 for tbo
Port  Moody   road, and 81,500 towards tho purchase of a steam fire
engine for this city.   The latter announcement may possibly have been
premature.   A gentleman who came
from Victoria on Friday stated thut
it Imd been promised, but wo ure
inclined   to   think   that it has not
bean actually made.   Tho justness
of our claim to government assistance
for this purpose, however, cannot be
disputed.    For several yeni s the eity
of Victoria has been receiving 81,-
500 for fire purposes, while this city
receives but &600.     The late conflagration   was  hardly   needed   to
demonstrate the insuiOciency of our
present  appliances  for fire protec
tion.   We must have a steam fire
engine   or  a new system of water
works   which can be available far
6re purposes.    Water works'sufficient for domestic use and fire pro- j
tection    would   cost n very large
sum—larger a great deal than could
now be undertaken by the city.   A
steam fire engine could be procured
at   comparatively   small cost, and
would   answer  for many years to
come.    We believe tho government
will   give at least $1,500 towards
purchasing a good engine, and we
are of  opinion   that such an offer
should be met by the city promptly.
There seems no longer nny reason-
'   able doubt that New Westminster
will have a high school.   It ia understood tbat the sohool will be established and ready for work at the
close of the summer holidays.   And
It   ia to  be a free sohool. . What
New    WeatniinBt.'r  asked   was  a
school   for  higher instruction  in
whioh part of the expense would be
born* by fees from the pupils attending it   Unlike the person who
•iked for bread and received a atone,
we   asked for half a loaf and re
ceive a full loaf.    We are of opinion
that all public institutions for higher education should be made partly
self-supporting.     In discussing the
high school question wo have always
held to this opinion.    But tho legislature seem to lmvo been unable or
unwilling to deprive Victoria of her
freo high school, and tho only alternative  wns to make all high schools
free.     The   plan   proposed hy the
provincial   secretary, tlmt   fees   to
the amount of half tbe cost of tha
school should be imposed, would not
carry and tho fees had to be wholly
struck out,    The result is one which
tho   people   of   New  Westminster
have no reason to regret, hut we
are afraid it  will  not bo regarded
with  very much favor throughout
the country.    This province is able
to supply free education to the people, but it can do so only at the ex-1
pense of other departments of the
service.     Every   thousand   dollars
expended  upon freo high schools is
a thousand dollars taken from tho
amount available for roads or other
public  works—which   are   greatly
Seeded,     We hopo, however, die
timo   is   not far distant when our
whole   Bcliool system  will be reorganized und placed Upon a different
footing.   So long as tho entire cost
of the schools comes from the public   chest, the people ara apt to become careless about the efficiency of
tbe schools aud the economy of their
management. Tbo government grant
to the Port Moody road we regard
with great satisfaction.   It ought to
be   sufficient to make a very good
road, and it ought to silence those
political partizans  who have been
trying to persuade the people that
the  government   were opposed   to
anything which might benefit Port
Moody.      The amount granted for
the road via the Clarke trail is exactly   the  sum suggested by The
Columbian*, and it is made upon the
same  condition, namely, that   the
people of Port Moody contribute an
additional $1,500.    There is a curious fact about this grant which it is
worth while to mention.    We are
informed that the deputation sent
from this city were met by tlie Hon.
John Robson alone, and that in a
very few minutes the whole matter
was arranged to their entire satisfaction.     Now, this is the very poison who, abovo all others, certain
people  about Port Moody and  in
this city have been abusing because
of his hostility to the interests of
Port Moody!   Wo   do not suppose
this action of tlio provincial secretary will lessen the bitterness of the
cliquo who never mitjs,ati opportu
nity of misrepresenting him and the
government; but it will satisfy nil
reasonable minds thut his reported
hostility   to   Port Moody does not
influence his  official judgment at
least.

NEW Buildings,—We understand
that arrangements have been made
fur erecting three brick buildings on

vastated by fire. The Colonial Hotel
will bs three stories high, and adjoining will be Mr. Use's new store and
Mr. Meade's shaving parlors. These
will be two stories. As soon as material ean be procured wo believe it is
intended to go on with building, These
briok 'structures will add very muoh
to the appearance of that part of
Columbia iti
Another Railwav Accident.—Last
Friday afternoon a tram uf 23 curs
came down from Yale, having attached
a box car with about n dozen passongers, Whon nenr Aggnasiz prairie the
box car jumped the traok, nud was
dragged somo distance over the ties.
It finally went over on its side, part
of tho root w»b knocked off, nud
through this opening 4 of tho passongers woro thrown. Tliu car went on
further .and jumped clear over tbe
traok, huming on ita* sido. The passengers wero nil badly shaken up and
sotno of them received serious bruises.
Mr. J. T. Scott, of Port Moody, was
quito helpless, and had to ho brought
to tliis city. Dr. McLeod, of thia
city, was on board, and was bringing
down a sick man named Philip Lewis.
Both were thrown out and hurt. We
nro glad to know that nono of the injuries aro likely to provo fatal. The
train was going ill the rato nf about 8
miles uu hour, and it is remarkable
thnt no ono was killed.   ■
The Edison Lit)iit.—Edison at least
has no doubts ns to the future of tho
electric light. Bu gavo sumo interesting points the other day to n Now
York interviewer, showing how popular it in becoming even in small towns,
Iu tliese towns 1} cents per hour for
each burner is charged, which is equal
to about $2.50 per thouaand feot of
gas. The introduction of electricity
is thu immediate signal for u reduction
in tho price of gns. Ono company in
Pennsylvania actually reduced ita gas
to 06 cents pur thousand feot. Another sold theirs at 81.10 per thousand.
Edison is confident that within (ivo
years electric companies will furnish
08 percent, bf the light. Ho thinks
it probable that within two years his
company will supply light to 200 towns
and cities iu tho United States.
Though thoro ia uo immediate necessity for reducing tho prico of tho electric  light much behnv that of gas,
Edison ut tho same timo says that light-     _,      „..,__„
ing by electricity can bo dono ut less j thclmniiig muinner,' of "the best ki
cost than by any other moans known
in tho world.—Ex.
be delivered the same night. We always have had a postoffice grievance in
some shapo or other, and probably
always shall until mails come over tho
C.P.R. Tho present state of things
needs amendment, however, and cannot be suffered to exist much longer.
We hope our representative at Ottawa
will see that tho necessary help is obtained.	
Chinese New Ybar.—On Sunday
tho Chineso new year festivities Wero
begun in this city, and all through the
province. The festivities promise to
be conducted tliis year on a very extensive scale. A Chinaman down the
coast explains tho situation in this
way: "The Chinese Emperor is a littlo
fellow, now only about ten years old.
Nino yeuva ago his father died, nnd
ho, of courso, hud to bo King. It is
customary with our peoplo nil oyer
the world, und especially in China," to
celebrate the anniversary of tho day
on whioh a King is first crowned, and
wo call that Now Years, So, you see,
wo now coJebrute the 27th of January;
but when wo have another KJng, wo 11
have anothor day. In keeping books
wo put down tho King's name, the
year of his roign, the month and day.
Tlie China namo for tho day is'Sun-
mine,' or 'Yet-nano,' which Bimply
means the first day. Wo generally
keep our celebration up for a woek,
and overybody knows what wo do;
'Firat, iu the morning wo oxohango
greetings, tho same as American people
do ou their New Year's morning. We
have cards, mako calls und havo a
general good time. We also beat
gongs, make music aud burn a great
many firecrackers. Wo don't burn
firecrackers liko Americans do—a few
at a timo; wo burn barrels and barrols
of them ut ono time. One firm alono
will burn several hundred dollars'
worth of crackers during tho festival
week. Unlike many Americans who,
when thoir fourth of July comes
round, they stop eating and get drunk,
when Chinese celebrate, thoy rat and
drink at the same time. Tho moro
Uiey drink the more thoy eat, aud that
is why you never see a drunken Chinaman. Anothor reason that our people
don't got drunk is because they just
sip their wine or brandy. Au ordinary drink for a whito man would
make sis or seven for a Chinaman. On
our new year we remember the poor,
and make presents to each other, tho
same as Christian peoplo do on Christmas day, and ou the first day of our
celebration we have big feasts. Every
man who has a house of his own gets
up a big dinner and invites his friends
to feast with him."
From cariboo.

' Sumas, Jan. 10.—A public meoting
wus held at Contrevillo on the 14th
inst. Mr. G. It. Ashwell was voted to
tho chair, und Mr. G. W. Chadsey
acted us secretary, Mr. D. McGillivray addressed, tho meoting respecting tho necessity of asking the provinoial govornmont to causo a thorough
survey to be mado of the flooded
lands of tho district with n view to
having them dyked. He stated that
tlio lme for n dyke had never beon located by a,competont engineer. After
u lengthy discussion tho following resolution was unanimously passed:—
'Whereas a largo portion of the agri
cultural land in our settlement is subject to overflow from the Fraser rivor,
und wo firmly believe thnt if tho government would tako the necessary
steps towards obtaining all tbo information possible respecting tho reclamation of Baid lands and, in fact, all lauds
of a liko nature iu tho district, they
would thon be in a position, in connection with the settlers, to negotiate intelligently with capitalists or contractors iu any scheme that may present
itself having for its object the reclamation nf said land. And whereas no
infui mation of n tangible and reliable
nature exists as to the practicability of
reclaiming thoso lauds, and we deem
it of tho first importance to obtain nll
thu information possible, byu practical
aud competent enginoor, by examining
eaeli locality and preparing a report so
full and complete that the govornment, capitalists and land owners
would hnvo confidence in it. Therefore, be it resolved, That this mooting
respeVtfully urge- upon the provincial
govornmont, either by themselves pr
co-operation with the Dominion
government, to procure tho necessary
means to engage the sorvices, during

Our Post Office.---It is the common verdict of publio opinion that the
post office in this city is very far froin
furnishing reasonable ucomumqdu
tion. When the'otlice was taken t
tho new building it was oxpected that
matters would bo greatly improved,
That expectation has not been realized.
Tho now building is com foriable 'and
convenient us far us it goeB, but it cannot mnke up for the nhseuce of a sufficient stall' to "handle thu mails. The
post oflico stair to-day consists of only
two persons. It lias uot increased for
ovor a yoar. So far as sorting tin* foreign mails and attending to iho delivery on mail days is concerned, thoro
hns been no increase at all. Hut tho.
business of the office lias been growing
steadily, and has now attained such
proportions' that additional assistance
becomes absolutely necessary. During
the last 0 months of 1833 thoro wero
1208 money orders issued, being au
increase of 406 over the same period
of previous year; tho registered letters
numbered 5,030, nu increase of 1244;
the stamp aulas wero $2,475.05, au increase of $720.04; nud the commission
on money orders wns §298.70, an increase of $04.00. This, be it remembered, is for 0 months. The total revenue for these tf months wa»§2,774-41.
an increaso of $824.24 over same period
of 1882. That ia equal to an increaso'
of about $1050 in the revenue for the
yenr. In view uf this large increase
in business wo submit that tliu government Bhould allow fur another
assistant. Our foreign mails come
only twice a week. Sometimes
thuy aro very largo, and it often happens thnt the letters are not sorted for
delivery until two or threo hours nftor
'tho arrival of the mail. Newspapers
ore uot distributed until tho day following, und sometimes not until tho
third day. This is exceedingly annoying and ultogother uusa'tisfuutoiy. It
should bo possible to open tho wicket
within at least un -hour of tho arrival
ol tha mail, and all newspapers should
ciigincors to survoy nnd locate a lino
for the erection of dyke, prepare plans
uud specifications of the same, giving
nu estimate of tho expense, the quantity nnd qunlity of lund affected by
such dyke, and tho probable valuo of
tho lauds if efficiently dyked, and all
other information thought necessary
to have a full report to circulate abroad
in nider to attract tho attention of
capitalists."

went up to near the iron bridge crossing with the through train yesterday

the shareholders, thnt, in spite uf a

cents por share. The first dividend
will be payable nt once, the second nt

There appears to bo nn increased confidence among miners in tho capabilities of Yale Flat, and with a good
season and the probability of cheap
labor, thero is a prospect of the company paying largo dividends nt tbo

levels of the lint at tho baso of the

gravel, and will probably be extensively worked by Chineso noxt summer, nnd as tho Stnlho-chuck has tho

questions of vital importance nre nt pros-
sent before our local legislature: one to
enfranchise the "weaker vessel," the
other to enslave tho Chinese who happen

two propositions are diametrically opposed ia spirit to each other; both seem
to spring from the same source, because,
generally, thoso who support ono measure are in favor of tho othor. I conclude, therefore, that the man who would
enslave ono human being and nt the
same timo would enfranchise another, is
n double-minded mnn, and unstable in
all his ways. The one proposition is
extremely silly, aud tho other is ex-
tremoly wicked. Fancy an Honorable

Editor Columbian, — When a rond
from New Westminster to Burrard Iulet
was proposed, innny years ngn, aome par-
tics (including Hon. J. W. Trutch) tried
to have tho dry, nearly level, lund to-
wards I'nlse Creek preferred as a lino before the steep hills and shaking swamps
ou the route selected. Of this laet the
editor of your local contemporary in well
aware, so his bitter opposition to tho
Granville road cannot originate in n belief that It ia an idea of tho ministry who
declined his support. If the proposed
road could injure Port Moody wo might
expect the editor to oiler disinterested
opposition; hut he cannot- be iguornnt of
the fact that nuy opening up of a country must serve every place and person in
or near it. If any individual of Granville vicinity hns crossed the peculiar
idiocyeracics of the Guardian's editor it

Tlie lsc or Salt.
Tho Lancet s:\ys that, among the foi"
lios of the day, some indiscreet persons
aro objecting to tho uso of suit, and
propose to do without it. Nothing
could be more absurd. Common salt
is ttio most widely distributed substance in tliu body; it exists in overy
fluid nnd iu every Bolid; and not only
is it everywhere present but iu almost
wvory part it constitutes tho largest
Eortion of tho ash when any tissue is
urned. In particular, it is a constant
constituent of tho blood, and it maintains in it n proportion that iB almost
wholly independent of tho quantity
that is consumed with tho food, Tho
blood will tako up so much and no
more, however muoh wo may take with
our food; and, on the other hand, if
none be given, tho blood parts with ita
natural quantity slowly and unwillingly. Under ordinary circumstances a
healthy man loses daily about twelve
grains by one channel or the other,
nud if he is to tnaiutniti his health that
quantity must hu introduced. Common
salt is of immense importance in the
processes ministering to the nutrition
of tbo body, for not only is it the cliief
salt iu the gastric juice, nnd essential
for the formation of bile, and may
honco be£rou8otuibly regarded ns of
high vaimt iu digestion, but it is an
important agent iu promoting thu processes of diffusion, aud therefore of
absorption. Direct experiment hns
shoWn that it promotes the decomposition of albumen in the body, acting,
probably, liy increasing thu activity of
tho transmission of Huids from cell to
cell. Nothing can demonstrate its
valuo better than the fact thnt if al-
bunion without salt is introduced into
the intestine of an animal uo portion
of it is adsorbed, while it ull quickly
disappears if Bait bo added. If uny
further evidence wero" required, it
would be found in tbo powerful instinct which impels animals to obtain
salt. ButMoos will travel for miles to
reach a''salt-lick;' and the value of
salt in improving the nutrition nnd the
aspect nf horses and cattlo ia well
known to overy farmer. Tho popular
notion that the use of salts prevents
thu development of worms in the intoa
tine has a foundation in fact, for salt
is fatal to tho small thread-worms, und
prevents their reproduction by improving tho genoral tone und the character
of the secretions of tho alimentary
canal. Tho conclusion, therefore, is
obvious thut salt, being wholesome,
and indeed necessary, should bo taken
in moderate quantities, and that abstention from it is likely to be injurious.

Wo pulled fur about an hour, the men
all singing from'Moody and Sankey'
to tho landing, close to tha wreck of
the old Bounty, where some of tlio
women of the island met me and showed mo everything. I had to go into
each house, and everyone gave me
something—relics of the Bouuty, old
nntive curiosities, coral shells, baskets,
straw hats, fresh fish, cocoa-nut oil,
choucekki, arrowroot, coffee, lappa, or
native cloth, and somo most awful

A correspondent of the Houston,
Toxas, Post who has beon visiting tlio
prision at Huntsville, in thut State,
writes about tho bloodhounds used
thoro as follows: •
"And these are the bloodhounds I
hour so much about!" I remarked to
my conductor.
"Yes, they are the famous bloodhounds—that is, as much bloodhound
ns you will find in Texns. Thoy aro
simply foxhounds, trained to hunt
men."
"Do you keep them shut up all tho
time ?"
"Yos; they would mako it lively for
the boys if thoy got out."
"How often do you have occasion to
use them during the year?"
"Not moro than two or three times.
Convicts will not loavo when they
know good hounds nre on hand to
catch them."
"Could you not dispense with the
hounds und depend upon your guns ?"
"No, indeed; you cannot hold convicts with shotguns. It ia the fear of
the hounds which keeps them quiet.
Desertion is uboIcbs when recapture is
a moral certainty, as is the case when
good hounds are employed."
"Do you.hnvo difficulty in properly
training your hounds ?"
■ ;"0h,'!'hoj' that is about tho only
sport thoro is. Hero comes the pup-
pics. We will give thein a run and
let you soe hpw it is done."
A trusty was sent down the lane and
over tho fence, through a large field,
on a run for dear life. When he'had
accomplish ad nbout half a milo, or half
his circuit, tho puppies, three six-
month-old hounds, wero put ou his
track, and one started, nosing the
ground und yelping as thoy ran, Ou
thoy kept, over fences and throngii
stubblcB and ditches, never censing
tlieir noise. Sometimes they would
run over tho trail whero the trusty had
mndo an abrupt turn, but soon they
would return- to the spot whore thoy
lost tho scent and cautiously feel their
way until certain they hnd the trail
when thoy would off again. The trusty
wns a long-distance runner, but tho
soft ground mado his impromptu track
heavy, nnd he lagged as he approachod
tho end of his run, evidently fntig-ncd.
The dogs gainod on him rapidly nnd
wero yelping close upon him. Ho was
ordered to run to a tree or fenco and
get out of their way, so that they would
have to find him by tho scent. Ho
first tried to climb a high gate post,
but the dogs, with their noses to the
ground, woro upon liim almost, nnd
forced hiin to take shelter in a wagon
standing in the yard, where he hid
himself in the bed just ns the dogs
camo in tho gate They looked up the
gate post nud smellod around a littlo,
thou without delay followed the trail
direct to tho wagon and discovered
thoir prey, lying panting liko n tug
bont. I looked at tho perspiring convict, and my heart smote me for boing
tho causo of his race, but I soon found
out thnt it was a grent privilege, enjoyed by but few, and giving tho puppies n rnco was considered by thon tho
very essence of pleasure. The convict
took an old blanket in bis hnnd and
alighted ou the ground, whero tho dogB
fought him "-fiercely, mnking vicious
springs for him. He repulsed them
by buffeting than with the blanket,
jumping away, and thwarting them in
nuy manner without hurting them.
Finally, ono of tho dogs fn?'ened his
teeth in the convict's coarse pants, nt
a point whoro the most cloth wus used
in mnking, nnd, holding ou with unyielding tonnoity, was swung round
nud round with vigor, until tired. The
dogs wero then taken by a guard, nnd
the convict went away highly pleased
with his sport.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
Who was this boy, ihis Herwald
Delorme, that he Bhould disdain her
amilea? the game was a little ono, she
kuew. a very little one, but she did
not lovo to be beaten for all that; and
if beauty had failed tho Siren knew
she had other weapons in reserve; so
the Lorelie left off combing her golden
hair and tuned up for her dea.li song!
Now, though I smiled at this display of coquetry, I w&s mine the less
*waro that in this the wisdom of the
serpent was blended with the innocence of the dove, for I hnd bofore
Been men, strong powerful men ef intellect, who had proved callous lo her
other attractions, who had yet sue-,
cuuibed and fallen prone before lhe
beauty of her voice.
There was such a plaintive sweetness in it, that though it was nut
half auch a rnro contralto as Katie's,
and lacked Miliy's bird-like buoyancy,
it yet charmed more than either, for
it  seemed  to reach the heart's core.
So Louie went to the piano, and
Herwald and I composed ourselves ta
listen, At the end of the lirst fow
bars, however, he started up.
"Shall I play your accompaniment,
Miss Mortimer?"
"No, thanks,'' she relumed smiling-
ly, "I am accustomed to do it for
myself."
"Oh, very well," and Herwald sal
down again, but tho dissatisfied tone
of hia voice was ao ovident that Louie,
who had recommenced, turned half
round, and asked why he efferod.
"Because, pardon me if I speak the
truth, you will mar the harmony of
that sweet composition if you play it
liko that."
"Like what?" she inquired, in surprise; "really no one had ever said
such blunt things to me before."
"Because people in general find it
easier to flatter than to tell lhe truth,
but I am auch a lover of music that I
can rarely keep silence in her cause."
"Indeed, I had no idea I waB in the
presence of such an able connoisseur;
after lhat you shall certainly play my
accompaniment, and Nellie shall tell
ut how it sounds."
So saying alio rose pleasantly from
her seat, and Herwald, without another word, took it, and commenced.
The song was Tennyson^B sweet lovo
Idyll, "Swallow, swallow, flying, flying
south," and was Louie's special favorite, but she had never Bum* il as
ahe did to-night, and her voice Bounded gloriously, aided by Herwald's
masterly accompaniment.
There was quite a Babel of clapping
hands, and a tear on Katie's cheek
when she had finished, but Herwald
only said coldly—
"A very pretly thing, and very well
sung, but you have not practiced lately, I can see."
"How do you know that?' she asked,
somewhat piqued.
"Because I have a troublesoinely
fine ear, and two notes rang rather
flatly on it; but it was very well, for
all that. Como, shall we try the
Volkslied, from Mendelssohn, or if
you are tired shall I take your place
for awhile?"
Louie tired! who had been accustomed to star it for hours before an
admiring circle; alas, poor Siren—it
was very hard, and from an inmirnifi-
cant boy too! No, ahe would have
nothing to say lo the Volkslied—he
might oblige them with a song if he
would.
Herwald bowed assent, and nfter
straying his hand over a fow low
chords, broke—oil, Herwald, Herwald,
it was very naughty of yonl—into that
delicioualy capricious liltie refrain,
"Beware, beware."
"I know a maiden fair to seo,
Take uu'c, take care!
She can both false and friendly he,
Beware, beware]
Trust her not,
She is fooling thee."
"BravoI" cried Dudley, leaving the
boys, "bravo! you are a plucky fallow,
Quixoi i>."
Said Luo, languidly, "1 know that
sau;*, but never cared for i> ; cuii you
nut ivy aome him- mure now?-—du you
not sing Italian?"
"Yes, with Maud Rivera," answered
Herwald, wi.lt a grim smile at me,
"but I fancy I am in the mood lor
Enclihh ballads jo-iii'ihl, unless you
wilftry the VolUlied?"    ■
"No, uo," I in urposed, "lei us have
lomelhutg huiiii'.itu io Oltriattmrtivo.
Shall we call lhe boys from i'-eir jtiv-ie
nud have a cwol before they _o io bed?
Do, Herwald. it will reuii-id us of the
dear lang syne, when you and Dudley
a-id tlie Bruce used lo haunt ihe pi-s-
sngps in Olfrisithfln weel, a.id sing to
sweetly Hi oiu1 dours."
"Nellie,".h« Baid, with an abrupi
pels thai mm*, led me, "it ii noi ilie
'Auld Liuig Sytie'-—ihat can never r«-
turn, or iho dream* ilmt have noi
comu' true; why, then, should we
strive to recall ii I Have lhe boys up
if you will, and let (hem give their
carol, but my snug has been sung Cor
to-night,"
"Dear Berwald," I whispered, re
proachfully, "have you been less happy
this evoiiiuu thau you Uiought lu he,
or have wo loo disnppoioied you?"
"Never," he nnswored, vehemently,
"never; what a Btmrije que&fioiil Of
cour.se I have been happy—very, very
happy—ino much sn, I think; but I
will not sing your carol, Kallie, though
you ask ino sweetly with ypureyin.
Let the dear boys have it by litem-
solved; it will sound purer and fresher
from their lips."
Aiid so he had his way, and the
boys sang their carol, and Lome and
Katie joined, but Herwald went aud
"leant ag-.inst the large buy window and
looked out on the snowy garden Bleeping in the starlight, and up at tlio blue
winter sky, till they had finished, and
tha good-nights were said, then he
came forward with a tranquil smile
and joined the fireside circle.
*****      #
I had left the room a moment with
the boys, to give Seymour some parting message to his mother, and on my
return found that Bruce had extinguished the candles and thrown a
mighty log un tho fire, while the rest
were gathered round it in regular
hearth circle.
"Oome here, Nell, and sit between
. roe and Herwald." and Dudley pointed
Invitingly to my favorite chair, "Why,
what niakea you hesitate'" as I leant
on hit shoulder with a sudden touch of
pain, *
"Nothing," 5 replied; but I sighed
tl I took the lent, for I remembered,
though he did not, poor boy! who had
Ht there last Christmas-eve, with one
curly head between his knees and
another nestled to his breast,
.. "Christmu time, a holy and a happy
time," murmured Katie, half to her-
-Mlft aa ihe placed herself on the rug
■I my foot, while the flame made a
halo round her upturned fuoe; "yesr
tally a holy and a happy time,"
Ay, Kaly, holy; you are right there;
for nothing can detract from its sanctity since first the wondrous star guided the shepherds to Bethlehem, but
happy* only to those who can look upon
an unbroken circle, and know not the
heart-wrung longing for an absent
face.
So I was sorry and Bad that Bruce
had mado twilight and gathered us
round the old yule lug; for from time
immemorial it had been our custom;
but then ihe Ir rth-slone hnd been
rife with meirimeut, with jest, and
laugh, and snug; while the wassail
bowl brewed by children's lwticU. with
a mother's voice to aid, hud gone its
pleasant rounds; but now—oh it was
vory wrong of Bruce to form our
Christmas circle to-nii-lil.
Others besido myself seemed to
think bo too. for scarcely had we placed
iiur&iilvea, before Sadness, an unbidden
guest, niolu into our midst, and made
havoc of our pleasant thoughts,
Gradually each smiling face grow
grave, while long tils of musing interspersed each broken word and
sentence j oven the flame burnt dimly
aud flickered shadows iti the place of
ruddy gleams, and ihe room beyond
seemed hidden iu sable darkness.
And a sense uf heaviness was on us
nil, for death had boon with us during
tho past year, rubbing us with a double
loss, and with it a parting that was
like a lesser death, so greatly did it
embrace indefinite lime and distance,
stretching out over a long vista of
years.
Alas for Katie's failb and hopo and
patience, there were others whoso
heart waa sick with longing and with
the fear that "they ahould Bee Iub face
no more."
From thoughta like theae I roused
myself with a shudder to airay into
otl.er homes, and marvel how othera
wero feeling.
I thought of Hubert Clivo spending
desolate days in his Tuscan villa; and
Milly making one ot a merry Christmas circle, showing a brave bold front
of cheerfulness with a spirit that was
quelled and broken; and then of Rose
Hazeldean and that strange new life
of hers, tending her sick husband in
their pretty cottago at Vent or; and
lastly of Lucy's sorrowful face and her
plaintive voice, that seemed to ring in
my ears willi the cry, "Surely Iho
bitterneBa of death is passed;" and
then I woke with a start, for suddenly
the log blazed and crackled and roared
under Bruce'H impatient touch, and a
thousand sparkling atoms fell in showers of light.
There was a deep-drawn sigh of relief, and us if somu darkened weight
had been removed from us ull, and
before it could olose upon ub again,
Herwald drew breath and said,
Again at Clifistmas did we weave
Tlie holly round the Cliristmashearthj
The silent snow posaess'd tho earth,
And calmly fell ou Christinas-eve.
"The yule log Sparkled keen with host,
No wing of wind the region swept,
But over ull things brooding slept
The quiet sense of something lost."
His voice sounded melodiously in
the silence, und when he had finished,
Dudley said softly,- pausing with Iub
hand ou my nock, for he had been engaged in what he had termed "stroking
his cat,"—
In Memoriam again, Herwald?"
Yes;   but  you   shall   not  speak
against it to-niylit, you can hardly find
thu heart to do so, 1 should think,"
"Nay, nay, I was only jesting before; indeed, you wrong me if yuu
suppose that I cau fail to bo touched
by tho noblest human dirge ever written,"
"Btoepl ono, Dudley."
"And that?"
"Aud that the finest mns.tupicce we
possess of lhe Iind, thu inimitable
lament of David over Juuulhn.i: I
never can read ihat, or indeed the
whole Malory, without feeling that
Jonathan's aii'eclion was truly beau i-
ful.
"The entire story in all iis >ioblo
brevity is so unique and exquisitely
worded, from lhe moment when Jonathan, standing beside his dark browed
father, first looks upon ihe 'ruddy and
buau.iful coiinieiiniice' of the shepherd
boy coining in with his maiden spoils,;
and when, willi tlie mysterious in-
ft.ioct of a kindred mind, we are lold
'■hat the soul of Jonathan nv.s knit
wiih ihu soul of David, n-id Jo-nnbaa
loved liiai ns his own soul.' And ihutv
passing through all ihe dark phages of
that moat unhappy friendship, ■ km tig
as' we go ou the proiecli.e iei>dei'iiess
nf the princely friend, mingled ai ii
waa wi.li filial ]>'e-y, wu cmie ni last
to the blood-siniiied h«i;J"-s "f Gil-
boa, to tlie de-"- face of him Si hose
love was wonde.'ol. pasMi'g the love
of women,'and io the (ears am', lamentations of David ueepiog over ihe
slain, '1 am distressed forihee. my
brother Jonathan; very pleasant hast
thou boen to me,' and yol, and
ye. "
"And yet," interrupted Dudley,
with hia gray eyes kindling lii'i^Mly,
"you feel ai I do, that the strongest
love lay buried in tho dead mail's bosom; thai deep as was tlio pitllios of
tho shepherd-kins'/a lament, the Burrow it e\pri>sBed wps calm, compared
to tho anguish that wrung from him
afterwards the heart-break tug cry of
'Would Uod I had died for thee, 0
Absalom, my sou, my so.)!' "
"And what do you deduct from
that, Dudley?''
"Tliat the parental instinct, was
Stronger in David than any other, and
that liia nature was leas capable than
Jonathan's uf claiming n iii uny with
one who waa not of his blood; his love
for him was great, but it waa not wonderful, neither did he love him as his
own soul."
"Then you consider David the leas
noble nature of ihe two?"
"Let me paaa thatqueal inn, Herwald:
it involves higher things. Had 1
lived then, doubtless my human judgment would have approved of Jonathan's rare generosity, and yet my
pity would have been moved by the
desolate condition of (he fugitive
shepherd-boy hiding in ihe oaves and
fastnesses of the rocks. Du you not
fancy that many and many a time he
must have thought with regret of
'those few sheep ho had left in the
wilderness?'"
'Tot-Imps so; every lifo has space
enough for such regrets, but (he buy
who could wrestle with the lion and
the bear waa fitted to become ihe
crowned warrior uf his nation, and to
share the stirring life of camps and
palaces. But we are wandering from
our suqjocl, which waa on elective
affinity, and the relationship of kindred minds. Does it not seem strange
to you, Dudley, that the world at
large—Ihe great praclical world, I
mean, ahould deride nnd acorn this
relationship, terming it null and void,
and Of no account in the eyes of men,
and should rank oven tho lowest tie
of blood as immeasurably ita superior;
can you solve the*en.gmu?"
