current Events and Opinions.
The Salvation Army is reported
to have been nt the bottom of the
recent exposures of vice in London;
and it now proposes to lend a hand
in the correcting of the evil. The
Arm; has an advantage over ninny
religious organizations. It finds its
converts among the class whioh the
average religious worker does not
reach, and it creates in them a zenl
prompting them to undertake any
hazardous work, the results of which
are expected to be beneficial. This
is the result of its methods, which
are peculiarly potent with impulsive
people, appealing as tbey do, in a
greater nieasure""to the passions than
to the reason. Opinions differ as to
tlio permanency of the good the Army
accomplishes; but it has stood the
shock of a decudo, and *B now becoming more prominent than ever
by reason of the help it is giving in
the suppression of the great vices.—
Globe,
One of the largest advertisers in
New York says j—We once hit upon
a novel expedient for ascertaining
over what area our advertisements
were read. We published a couple
of half column "ads" in whioh we
purposely misstated half a dozen
historical facts. In less than a
week we received between 300 and
400 letters from all parts of the
country from people wishing to
know why on earth wo kept such a
consumute fool who knew so littlo
about American history. The letters kept pouring in for three or
four weeks. It was one of the best
paying "ads" we ever printed. But
we did not repeat our experiment,
because the oue I have reference to
served its purpose. Our letters
came from schoolboys, girls, professors, clergymen, schoolteachers
and in two instances from eminent
men who have a world-wide reputation. I was more impressed with
the value of advertising from those
two advertisements than I should
have been by volumes of theories,—
Ifew York Herald.
The first essay of this year's Hud-
sou Day expedition to pass through
the strait and gain the "Mediterranean of Canada" has resulted in
failure, Lieutenant Gordon having
been obliged to put baok to St.
John's, Newfoundland, for repairs
to the Alert. Tlie voyage was begun as early in the season as tliere
was any probability ot piercing the
■trait, Cape Best being reached on
the 10th June. Hero the vessel
was caught in the ice, nnd after being drifted backwards and forwards
ill a perfectly helpless condition for
three weeks she escaped from it
almost at tho same point on the 6th
July, with her bow plates ripped off
nnd her stem so badly damaged that
it was deemed advisable to refit before proceeding. The season may uo
an exceptionally severe one, but experience proves that only a very
short season can be counted on, nnd
that only specially strengthened
vessels can under any circumstances
be used for tho strait. Thero is
little doubt but that Lieutenant
Gordon will succeed in relieving the
observing stations nt a later date.—
Canadian Pajier.
That the Liberal party in Kngland will win, though probably by a
reduced majority, if it can go into
the elections a unit, or anything
like a unit, seems to be conceded by
the most cool-hooded Tories. But
its going into the elections anything
like a unit appears to depend on the
health of "The Old Man." "Old
0a>ue," to which Whigs like tho
rju|;g of Argyll nnd Radicals like
Mr Ohan,*,)0r'a'n owo common allegiance, there' '" nam- Al> "oul
Umbrella" may pt,rl''>Ps '» «*• to
be supplied bythe traditional policy
of the Whigs, wliich litis l"1 them
hitherto to cultivate a union: with
the Radicals, and inolude a EadW
representation in Whig eabinots, not
(Irom love of their associates; but in
order that they might keep the revolutionary movement under their
control. But a condition of this
polioy has always been the subordination of tho Radical to tho Whig
element, and at subordination the
present leader of the Radicals
spurns. Mr, Joseph 'Chamberlain
intends to be prime minister of England, let that blessing cost the country what it mny. Already, whilo a
member of a mixed cabinet, ho has
taken up a position of ostentatious
independence, not to say of antagonism, to his Whig and Liberal colleagues. In his hands center all
the wires of tho great sisterhood of
caucuses planted under his auspices
and by his confederates ovor the
large boroughs of the kingdom. In
spite of disappointments and rebuffs

lie still evidently hopes to capture
the Irish vote, or nt least so much
of it as Mr. Davitt can give .him,1
nnd he is ready to pay 'any-price for
it even to the dismemberment of the
realm. To the populace of the cities
he offers tho "ransom" of the property-holders and a system of progressive taxation, the proceeds of
wliich are to be spent for the lienefit
of tbe poorer class of paters.* Thnt
Mr. Gladstone is endeavoring to
muzzle him and prevent liim from
breaking up and ruining the party
is a very probable report. If Mr.
Gladstone is able to retain tlio leadership, as condemnation by him
would :1jo fatal to'Mr. Chamberlain,
his endeavors may be successful;
otherwise there will be a split; Mr.
Chamberlain will go oil' with the
Radicals, and try, as their leader,
at the election or after it,"to Storm

The Flood lu China.
Washington, Aug. 20.—J)otai|B of
destruction in Canton, Oliina, and
vicinity by the recent gale and fain-
storm there have been received Hiy
private parties in thia oity. Moro than
10,009 persons lost their lives, and by
far the grunt ur number loft are in a
starving condition. ; Entire villages
wure engulfed, and the rico and m)V
crop in the vicinity wero almost ruined.
Rain fell in the latter part uf June,
filling and overflowing many rivers.
A foreigner'who was an 6ye witnoss to
the scene of devastation reports that
one night the boat he occupied anchored near a bamboo grove, and by niorn-
ing the wator had risen to the tops of
tho bambiios. At other points it rose
as. high as forty feet during the night
time. The inhabitants fled from the
villages and camped on the hillsides.
At Kunin, a market placo,situated
near an enbankment of one of the
streams connected with the river,
which brings water from the north and
weBt, a majority;,of;^tho inhabitants
wero drowned' by 'tho' water breaking
through the embankment. Some
escaped to a pier on rising ground in
tho neighborhood, but the water con-
tinued to rise, and gradually overtopped
the elevation, drowning those who
stood upon it.' Seventeen Chinese
graduates in Canton, hearing of the
distrnss prevalent in their native villages, took passage on a boat, with a
view to proceeding homo, to render
what assistance thoy could. On tbe
way the boat was capsized, and all whu
were it) it drowned." In some places
Iiarents tied their children on high
tranches of trees, whilst thoy instituted measures fnr their general safely.
The trees were washed up by the
roots, and tho heart-rending cries of
the children were silenced in the surging water.
The hody of n brido-* dressed .in her
bridal rones wub found flouting iri tlm
river at Canton. A large tub was also
seen. It was picked up, and found to
contain a boy and a girl. With them
was found a paper, stating their names
niid tho day and hour of their birth.
The parents had instituted this means
tu save tho lives of their offspring.
Tho writer adds that tho suffering
whieh thousands aro enduring is heartrending, parents replying with tears in
their oyes to their children's requests
for food that they havo none. People
are obliged to uso tho filthiest water,
and this, added to the disease which
will ensue upon the subsidence of the
water, will greatly aggravate the horrors of the situation. Meantime all
that is being done by the inhabitants
to abate their misery is the beating of
gongs, the burning <>f incense and the
howling of prayers to idols.
Whnt Is Ventriloquism?
The human ear might be regarded,
from the same hypercritical standpoint,
ob a defective instrument. It is true
at all events that the ear is readily deceived, ns tho illusions nf ventriloquism
clearly prove. It in popularly sun-
pnserl that the ventrilnqiiist actually
''throws" his voice so that the sounds
are iu reality made to emanate front
any given point desired. Tho absurdity
of this will at once appear if it. bo considered that the sounds uttered aro
formed by the vocal orgflhs of the performer and can only proceed from
thom,
Tho illusions of veutriloquiim de*
pend entirely upun tho inaccuracy of
the ear in determining the point from
which a sound emanates. If one is in
a strange neighborhood and hears
churchtalls ringing, it is frequently
impossible for him to be sure from
which point of thocnnipMS tho chimus
reach the car. If one is approaching
a street corner on foot and hears tho
jinglu of the car-bells on the cross-
streeti, ho is usually puzzled to know
which way the car is coming. Tho
ventriloquist's art consists in so altering his natural voico as to give \\ when
it roaches the audienco an artificial
effect, which makes it nppear as If It
came from somo point distant from its
actual source.
Aiiy ono cun, with practice, ventriloquise a little. Tho ventriloquist Voice
iB produced hy speaking behind tho
closed teeth, without moving the lips,
tho tonguo being pressed against the
roof of tho mouth. An unnatural
voice is tho result, and that, together
with tlio immobility of the lips; is the
first element of thu deception. The
attention of the audienco is directed tu
the point -frum whioh the iouih! is expected to proceed, and tho performer
go modulates his words that when they
reitoh the audience they have as nearly
as possible the lame sound effects as
they would have if thoy proceed from
the point indicated. The ventriloquist
pretends that thero is a man in a trunk
un the stago, nud a smothered voice ia
heard whioh actually seems to como
frum inside the trunk. Ho shuuts to
an imaginary person behind the flios
and tho answer is returned faintly.
The deception depends upon tho ex*
peetant attention of the audienco nnd
the skill with which the counterfeit
sound-effects ore produced. Tho oar
is not sufficiently accurate in determining tlie diwetion of a sound to enable
the audience to bo euro of ils exact
source. Thus puppets are mado to
wag thoir jaws and appear tu talk
while tho ventriloquist, holding thein
on his knee, curries un a convorsstion
in two or threo assumed voices behind
his teeth.

auawlay Warateg, Sept. ft. WSS.
It is announced that the 0. P. R.
syndicate has just paid back to the
Dominion government the $5,000,-
000 loaned during the last session.
It has heen broadly stated in many
quarters, and often repeated, that
this money would never be repaid.
Thc fact that it has been repaid
leads us to presume that the G. P.
B. is not as near the verge of bankruptcy as Senator Mclnnes' letter
was intended to intimate.
A report from Ottawa states tliat
the new cabinet minister, Mr. Thos.
White, has publicly expressed tlie
opinion that Riel must be hanged.
It has not yet been determined,
apparently, what the rebel's fate
will be. The slow processes of law
are in motion looking to un appeal
to the privy council, and if once
the sentence is interfered with there
is very little likelihood that it will
over be carried into effect.
i-jgpn. Thos. White, the newly-
mnde cabinet minister, was nominated for re-election on the 20th
ult, for Oardwell. But he is opposed by Dr. Allison, a conservative
who appears on tbe independent
ticket. Tliere is not likely to be
any serious doubt about tlie new
minister's election, but the nomination of an opponent, especially a
conservative, has been a genuine
surprise. It is not often tliat a
cabinet minister seeking election is
opposed, and it is extremely rare to
find-him opposed by one of his own
party. __^_
If it be true, as stated by the
lately returned United States consul, that Ohinese emigration to
America could be prevented without difficulty by a.word from the
governor of Hongkong, surely the
quickest way to reach a most desirable result would be the one suggested. Hongkong, as stated the
other day, is a British possession,
aud is governed by the imperial
cabinet at London. Nothing is
needed, according to the U. S. consul's ^report, but an order froni London asking thc governor of Hongkong to prevent emigration, and the
thing will at once be done. Moreover, the consul asserts that the
govornor of, Hongkong is perfectly
willing to stop Chinese emigration.
Since the utter failure of the United
States restriction bill, and the apparent hopelessness of the.:endeavor
to exclude these people by means of
legal barriers, it would certainly be
worth while to find out by actual
experiment how much truth there
is in the consul's statement. The
matter hus ns much interest for us
as it has for the people of the Unit-
fid Stat**_«__-._
Ohinese Trade.
The Snn Francisco Bulletin gives
some statistics respecting the trade
between California and China wliich
are both interesting and instructive,
During tlie last quarter tbe value
of goods exported to China from
San* EranciBco by white mc
chants was $237,014; V oninese
merchants, 8585. *>P* This comparative s*-*-wme--ti taken inconnec-
- fjjii with the fact that not many
years ago all the trade to which it
relates passed through the hands of
white merchants, shows how surely
the Chinese nre becoming masters
of the trade with their own country. In 1882 San Francisco imported $8,952,680 worth of goods
from China, nnd exported $4,688,-
427. In 1884 tbe exports had fallen to $2,897,324, and the imports
to $6,843,403. But the oxports of
treasure in 1884 were $13,073,867,
against $4,634,423 in 1882. Evidently the gold obtained by Ohinese
in America does not remain in the
country. It goes back to the celestial land, and ub the Chinese get
control of the Pacific coast trade
they are enabled to increase enormously their shipments of gold to
China. This drain of wealth ought
to be stopped. It can be very materially reduced if people would
cease trading with Chinese merchants and discontinue the employment of Chinese in any capacity.
A Great Corse.
Everyone who visits the region
about Eagle Pass, Farewell, and beyond, brings most disheartening reports of the ravages of free whisky
in these j^U way villages. Tlie railway builders have passed through
the north-west territory with comparative immunity from the whisky
nuisance, because liquors are practically prohibited there. But in
British Columbia it is different
Here wo have, perhaps, the worst
liquor law to be found in any pro-
vince or territory or state in North
America, and the result is free
whisky and its demoralizing consequences about the railway. Thore
seem to be different opinions respecting the responsibility for tliis disgraceful state of attain. Tho Dominion officials say the provincial
authorities are responsible because
they have granted licenses in proximity to railway construction where
they {Dominion officials) were prepared to suppress the traflic absolutely. To this the provincial authorities reply that the traffic was
not being suppressed at all. It
went on without obstruction, and
wns evon made n source of unlawful
revenue to thc federal police. Finding this the provincial authorities
decided to issuo a limited number
of licenses and attempt to regulate
the traffic. In this thoy do not
sepm to have been successful. There
nro some persons selling under provincial licenses in these regions, but
there are n great many more selling
without any license at till. It is
certainly not much to the credit of
the police that this unlawful traffic
should be permitted to grow and
flourish ana work out its natural
results of dissipation and death
right where they have been sent to
suppress it.
Falling into Disrepute.
It is beyond question that swenriiig
is beginning in theae days to fall into
disrepute, not because of its wickedness, but because it is more and moro
regarded aa in bad taste. Formerly-
even in the politest circles, men would
rip out oaths, aud such expressions as
"Gad" abound in the old novels and
dramas. A gentleman wits expected
to swear roundly, and the English race
especially were noted for tlieir rough
and violent profanity, so that thoy
came to be known on the continent ns
"theGoddaras."
Now swearing is frowned upon
among educntedand cultivated Englishmen. It violates thoir first canon of
good breeding, which is self-control,
and is tabooed, not becauso it is wrone,
but because it is distasteful. Just as
intoxication, or the too freo use of
alcoholic stimulants, is looked upon as
vulgar nnd offensive indulgence, so the
tiai3 of oaths Ib objected to as essentially uugentlomaulike.
From having been the loudest and
coarsest of swearers, English gentlemen have become the most intolerant
of profane expressions, and even tlio
mildest expletives nre accounted by
them ns in bad tnste. Soldiers and
sailors formerly lookod upon swearing
as a professional necessity, nnd perhaps atill do so; but probably a man
like Wolseley shares tho feoliug of
othor English gentlemen with respect
to profanity, and we know tlmt Grant
went through all the excitement of the
civil wnr without an oath, though on
both sides the air was often blue with
cursing.—JT. Y. Letter,
Ancient Pestilences.—Long before
the Christian crn, peslilenous, which
wore known by the local nnmes of the
"sweating sickness," tlio "black death"
and thc like, nt frequent but irregular
periods swept over the countries of
Asia nnd Europe, causing widespread
destruction of lifo. Commencing in
China in 1333, the pestilence marched
stendily westward, until (ill the then
known world .had been covered, not
excepting the island of Iceland, in the
Polar San, where the mortality was
frightful. This plague reached Eiirupo
in 1347 and raged up to .1360, a period
of twenty-seven yoars from its first appearance iu China. The accounts of
the mortality seem incredible, but
there appears no reason to doubt the
statements of historians of the period.
In Cairo the death rate wiib as high as
10,000 daily. Towns and whole districts were nearly depopulated, and
ships without crews were driven on
the shores of the Mediterranean and
North Seas, nil lunds having perished
with tho plague. It is estimated that
Europe lost in that visitation 25,000,-
000, or one-foui-h of th« entire population. CMna suffored to the extent
0f 23,000,000, nnd thc balance of Asia
lost 23,000,000, a totnl of 01,000,000
attributed to this wave of destruction
passing over all that portion of the
earth's surface where intercourse and
association for the purpose of commerce
existed.

Mr. Nordenfeldt, of gun fume, haa
invented a safe process for manufacturing powder. .Instead of grinding sulphur, charcoal and saltpetre*together
in their solid stale, sulphur ia put in
solution as sulphate of carbon. This
is mixed with cotton or cellulose fibre,
ground to nn impnlpnble powder. A
saturnted solution of saltpetre iB added
to this mixture. Then it is evaporated
under disturbed crystallization, Almost a liquid gunpowder is thus obtained.

The Scotch (lathering.
ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS.
According to announcement the
Scotch gathering took place at this
city last Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately tho elements were most
unpropitioua. Foy hung thickly over
the whole face of nature, and one
could not distinguish au object twenty
yards distant. It was evident that
not many persons from a distance need
bo expeoted, The Yosemite, which
was to bring 600 excursionists from
Victoria did not leave that city until
near noon, and the intending excursionists, finding that it would be impossible to reach this place in timo to
participate in the sports, decided not
to come-.at all. About 20 arrived the
following day. Quite a number of
people from Burrard Inlet and tho
rural settlements, howover, found
their way to the oity, and the attendance was considerably larger than
was expected under the circumstances.
Thero were about 500 in thu Agricultural grounds, and nearly na many
stood outsido to view tho performance
on the sly. There were six Scotchmen in full costume, and they wero
the centres of attraction for all eyes.
Chief Bouboii, ex-Chief Black, Mr,
Peter Grant, and Mr. Thos. Mowat
woru the Royal Stuart; ex-Secretary
Ross wore tiie London Scotch; and
Mr. D, McGregor appeared in the
Campbell. Muiio was furnished during the day by the Hyack baiid, aud
tho city string band played 'for the
ball, Altogether the amusements
went off as well aa could bu expeoted,
and we believe all parties were satisfied. The prizes awarded were as follows: Putting heavy stone, 1st D. J.

it has been gathered in splondid condition. The root crops are suffering
from the drought. Wells, also, are
going dry, and in some places water is
very scarce. Mr. A. McCallum, local
road superintendent, is making rapid
progress and excellent work on the
roads in this settlement. Messrs,
Turner and Sprott'were up last week
iu connection with road work. The
people hud petitioned for a certain
road, hut on examination it was found
to run in a wrong direction. After
considerable surveying Mr. Turner
succeeded iu locating a road, both
practical and likely to be of great benefit to tliu settlement. It runs between
the landing road and Matsqui prairie,
and will afford an outlet to the landing for. the prairie people. 1 believe
Mr. Turner will shortly locate a now
road from Warnouk to tho Yale trunk
road, whioh will give tho people of
Alder Grove an outlet to the river.
There has been marked progress iu
Alder Grove settlement of late, and
quite a number of uew families are
expected to locate thore shortly, Mr.
Jas. McGregor has added a good deal
to Mount Lehman by tho erection of n
fine new residence in placo of tho one
burned last spring, Mr. Jas. Brewster is also about to erect a new residence ou hia place. _

Port Moony, Sept. 3.—Tho ship
Ben. F. Packard, fully discharged and
expecting to leavo port early in the
weok, still occupied her old berth yesterday morning. The James Drum-
moinl is expeoted to complete discharging to-day. Tlm Gerard O. Tobey is
being rapidly unloaded, but it will be
late next woek before tho work is completed. These are all Maine ships.
Thero has been a rumor atloat, for
some days past, to thu effect that the
manifest of cargo of the ship bringing
out the iron piles for the Port Moody
railway wharf had arrived. The rumor
may be without sufficient foundation;
but it is well known that this pile*
laden ship, and alao thu English parties who havu tho contract for piling
tho wharf in question, are now on their
way from England and are expeoted to
arrive here about the closo of the current month.—A Kanaka (name unknown) omplnyed in unloading ono of
thu rail ships, met with nn accident'
the first of the week by which he will
loso two of his fingers. He wns taken
down to Granville for treatment. This
is one of several maiming accidents
which have occurred this season in unloading these rail ships.— There isau excitement unprecedented in Port Moody
anent the recent gold discoveries iu
the Similknmeen country. Every up
train takes away a bevy of expectant
miners. If the furore continues, the
place will soon be nearly depopulated;
but it is not improbable that most of
the adventurers will soon return.—I
need not dwell upon .the dense conglomeration of fog and smoke in which
we havo boen wrapped for weeks past;
for I believe it prevails everywhere on
tho coast. Usually in tho morning,
from 0 to & o'clock, it is bo dense that
onu cannot uiscern any object whatever
at twenty yards distance. Tho consequent darkness of the nights is something appalling.—The up-trairi of this
morning brought to at Hammond, to
wait there for tho arrival of the stoamer from Westminster, and the locomotive returned to Port Moody to
tako up somo additional rail-laden flat
cars. The delay of tho train at Hammond would be "a sell" for some of
the prospective miners on board, who
expocted to go directly on to Hopo
station. -Early in thu week, tenders
wore advertised for. to provide for tho
construction of, the Bhort bit of road
from thu southern termination of tho
railway wagon road to Douglas stroot,
thus connecting the wagon rond with
the town proper. Tenders were to be
in by Thursday at noon, The tender
of Josoph Wise, of New Westminster,
was accepted.

to the former. He denounced outrages,
saying the continuation of them would
be a terrible blow to the Irish cause.
The land question was the great question

Perhaps tho most artistic building on
the exhibition ground ia the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ anil Piano Company
of ftowmanville. It is moreover one of
the n^-,t interesting to lovers of good
mualc as be*.-, the location of a magnificent collection ot instruments. The
erection of this building, -vhich cost
about $1,000, became necessary to-n^t
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, whore it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. Tbe
enterprise displayed by tlie Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond qucstiou that the public approve
tlio provision made for their convenience
nud comfort. Here a crowd may bo
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Plight well do the Company deserve
thu access wliich they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, ito day uf small
'tilings. It hail its origin in Bowmanvillo
nbout fifteen years ago, tho stock boing
at tliat time largely held by parties unac
i-uaiult'il with the business. Ahout ten
Years go Joltu Wesley, the present secro
tary and h-easurer; George Liggett, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W, S. llussell, superintendent of tlio tuning ilopartmeut, bought
out the shtu-eholditr-i and assumed control. Since that date tliu business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to tho concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner, Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and tli« establishment, was increased, until it now occupies a leading
Imsitiou among Canadian undertakings.
tturns out about 20U organs and 50
pianos per month. These aro produced
bv 250 hands, who receive in wages
about 515,000 per month, The whole
civilized world is the tinn's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, Kngland; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand* and St. Petersburg,
Russia,
The instruments on exhibition in tbe
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
Bquare and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against tho side
wall of a room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments, The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome nppcaranco, and Ib
suited for occupying a prominent position hi drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for liours. The touch la
quick and easy, tho tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance thoy aro equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made by tho Company are
known almost everywhere.   They are
manufactured iu all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50to$l,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which haa
beon placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite, The cases show wonderful variety, Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
Tlie case whicli secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is atill much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design and artls
tic in execution. Tliu musicians who
tested tlie organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
aro model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases,

Beauty.
The loveliest eye is tbat of faith,
Wlilcli upward looks to God;
The neatest foot is tliat which has
The path of virtue trod.
Tlie Bweetest lira are. those that ne'er
A word of guile have spoken;
The richest voice is that of prayer,
One ne'er a vow has broken.
The prettiest hair is that whicli Time
Has silvered o'er with grey,
Or covered o'er an honored head—-
Its beauties ne'er decay.
Tbe fairest hand is one that's oft
In deeds of kindness given;
The purest heart is one that Christ
Has sanctified for Heaven.
A Model Love Letter.
Mapers vs. Harris.—This waa one
of those rare nnd peculiar caseB—
breach of promise of marriage—and
occupied the greater part of the fore
noon. From the evidence, it nppears
that thc parties both live in or nenr
Onondaga, that Harris had been n frequent visitor for about two years nnd
a half at the bouse uf the plaintiff—a
widow woman nearly thirty years of
age, with three children, lt seems to
have been the opinion of thu frieuds
of the plaintiff, and no doubt she
thought so herself, that Harris would
marry her; but he (Harris), from some
unaccountable cause, a few months
ago, suddenly discovered that he bad
loved another young lady bettor, and
verified this belief n short time since
by marrying that other lady. Henco
thii aetiun brought by the plaintiff tu
recover damngcB, to apply ns a salve
to her wounded affections. The following tender epistle, sent by the loving swain, will interest our renders,
and we recommend it as a lovo letter;
"My Dear Miss M.—Every time I
think of you ray heart flops up and
down like a churn-dasher. Sensations
of unutterable joy caper over it like
young gnats on a stable mof, and thrill
through it like Spanish needles thruugh
a pair of tow linen trousers. Aa a
gosling swiinmeth ill n mud-puddle, so
I awim in a sea of glory. Visions of
ecstatic rapture thicker than the hairs
of a blacking-brush, and brighter than
the eyea of a liu mm ing* bird's pinion's,
visit me and I reach out to grasp it,
liko a pointer snapping nt a blue-bottle
fly. When I first beheld your angelic
perfections I was bewildered, and my
brain whirled around liko a bumblebee under a glass tumbler. My eyes
stood open like tho cellar doors in n
country town, and I lifted up my ears
to catch the silvery accents of your
voico. My tongue refuaed to wag,
and in silent adoration I drank in the
sweet infection of love as a thirsty
man swalloweth a tumbler of hot
whisky punch.
•'Since the light of your face fell
upon my life I sometimes feel as if I
could lift myself up by my boot-straps
to the top of the church steeple, and
■ pull the bell rope for singing school.
Day and night you are in my thoughts.
When Aurora, blushing like a bride,
rises from her saffron colored couch;
when the jay bird pipes his tuneful lay
in the apple tree by the spring house;
when the chanticleer's shrill clarion
heralds the coming worn; wheu the
awakening pig arises from hia bod and
grunteth, and goeth for liis morning
refreshments; when the drowsy bcetla
wheels to droning flight at sultry in-
contituilo; and when the lowing herds
come home at milking time, I think of
thee; and like a piece of gum elastic
my heart seems stretched clear across
my bosom, Your hair is like the
mane- of a sorrel horse powdered with
gold; and the brass pins skewered
through your waterfall fill me with unbounded awo. Your forehead is
smoother than the elbow of an old
coat. Your eyes are glorious to behold. In their liquid depths I see
legions of little cupids bathing like a
cohort of ants in an old army cracker.
When their fire hit me upon my manly
breast it penetrated my wholo anatomy, as a load of bird-shot through a
rotten apple. Your nose is from a
chunk of Parian marble, aud your
mouth is puckered with sweetness.
Nectar lingers on your lips like honey
on a bears paw; and myriads of unfledged, kiisei are there ready to fly
out and light somewhere, like bluebirds out of their parents' nest. Your
laugh rings in my ears like the wind
harp's strain, or the bleat of tho stray
lamb on the bleak hillside. The
dimples on your cheeks are like bowen in beds of roses or hollows in cakes
of home-made sugar.
"I am dying to fly to thy presence,
and pour out the burning eloquence of
my love, as thrifty housekeepers pour
out hot coffee. Away from yott***m
as melancholy as a sick hi*- , 8ome;
times I can hear thp juno bu*80j
deipondency \mp?t ln,m* c.ar"> an.d
feel the col*-'*fr^ of despair crawling do1"' my Dllc*1' Uncouth fears,
jib. a thousand minnows, nibble at
my spirits; and my soul is pierced
with doubts liko an old cheese is bored
with email skippers.
"My love for you ia stronger than
the smell of Coffey's patent butter, or
the kick of a young cow, and more
unselfish than a kitten's first caterwaul.
Ab a song bird hankers for tho light of
day, the cautious mouse for the fresh
booon in the trap, ns a young pup
hankers for new milk, bo long I for
thee. You nro fairer than a speckled
pullet, sweeter than a Yankee doughnut fried in sorghum molasses, brighter than a topknot plumage on tho head
of a muBcovy duck, You are sweetened toddy altogether.
"If these few remarks will enable
you to see the inside of my soul, and
■ne to win your affections, I shall be as
happy aa a woodpecker on a cherry
tree, or a stage horse in a green posture. If you cannot reciprocate my
thrilling passion I will nine away like
a poisoned bedbug, and fall away from
a flourishing vine of life, an untimely
branch} and in coming years, when
the shadowi grow from the hills, and
the' philosophical frog sings his cheerful evening hymns, you, happy in
another's love, can come and drop a
tear and catch a cold upon the laat
resting place of
"Yours affectionately,
"H."

The Great African Diamond.
An Amsterdam correspondent of the
Manufacturing Jeiveller teUs tho atory
of the immense African diamond-
weighing 457 karata in the rough—
which is in process of boing cut by
Mr. Jacques Metz, one of the largest
diamond outtera of that oity. This
Btone ia said to have a somewhat curious history, and, though .its exact
birth-place is only a matter of conjecture, it is known that it was found by
somebody in one of tho four mines of
Kimberley, in the Cape Colony, South
Africa. It is Baid that in Juno or July
of last year one of ttio surveillance
officers of tho Central Mining Company in the Kimberley mine found tho
stone, and, being exempt from search,
carried it through the searching-house
unperceived and Bold it to four irregular dealers for $15,000, Before leaving tho province the new owners had
a night of drinking and gambling,
wliich ended in two of them becoming its owners instead of four. The
two owners escaped the secret polico
and reached Capo Town, where tbey
found a dealer who readily paid them
905,000 fur the stone. There is an
export duty on diamonds shipped from
the Capo Colony of i pur cent.; but
it appears that this atone was smuggled out of the colony by a passenger
on the mail steamer and brought to
Loudon, whore its presentation at
Hntton Garden created a great sensation. A former resident at the Cape
mines managed to form a company of
eight persons, who bought the stone
botween them for $225,000 cash, nn
condition that the seller or sellers
should receivo a ninth share of tho
eventual profits, The real value of
the stone hus been estimated ut Lon-
don at above $1,000,000. According
to tho rules uf valuation of thojnmous
Tavertiier diamond, its value would be
$4,100,080. The correspondent aays
that the art of diamond polishing ex-
iating iu Amsterdam for more than
three centuries has been brought to
Btich perfection that it is expocted
thut thia atone, weighing in the rough
457 karats (and said to be whiter und
purer than any of its historical predecessors; thut it will be more rapidly
finished, and it has every cluiuce of
remaining the largest and finest din-
niond in tho whole world. "To enter
into comparisons," he says, "the Great
Mogul, now in tbe Persian treasury,
weighed in the rough 787 knrntB, but
through the incapacity of tho Venetian workman the stone lost in cutting
507 karats. Shah Jehnn, instead of
paying for the work, made the workman pay him a fine of 10,000 rupees,
and would have taken more if he had
had it. Aa it is, this Btone ia yet the
largest of all known, weighing now
280 karats. Tho nest in size is the
Orloff, forming the top of tho imperial
Russian sceptre, and weighs 105 karats.
This stone formed one eye of a Brahmin idol and wns stolen by a French
soldier, whu fell in love with the beautiful eyes of the Indian goddess.
Next in weight follows the Regent,
one of the French crown .diamonds.
In its rough state it weighed 410
karata; it took two years to cut it und
20,000 franca' worth of diamond powder was used in its polishing. Ita
present weight iB 136 karats. Noxt
we come to the Kohinour, the property
of Her Majesty the Queen of Great
Britain. The stone waa first cut in
'Indie,' holding 180J karats, but it
missed all the fire that such a magnificent gem ought to possess. Hence
the Queen had it recut in the brilliant
form by the eminent cutter Vpqnwnger,
especially ordered to London for the
purpose. The cutting waa performed
iu a masterly manner, and though
losing 84] karats in working, the atone
was trobled in value. Tho Star of the
South haa nlso been polished here in
Amsterdam at the nulls of the lute
Mr. Coster; it ia in the shape of an
oval brilliant, and now weighs 127
7-10 karats." 	
A Fast Run.
"Ive heard tell a good deal about
fust runs lutely," said the engineer;
"thoy talk of their eighty-four milos in
eighty minutes aa if it waa an easy mutter, but my opinion is half o theso
stories are lies- yes, sir, lies, open and
shut. I don't Bee what a man wants
to He nbout u little thing like u fust
run for. If it wus fast it was fast, nnd
if it wasn't quite so fast it was a little
slower, That's nil you can make out
of it.
"Did I ever have a fast run myself1
Yos, I did, but I don't like to tell
about it for fear you'll think I'm
stretching tilings. I never stretch-
I despise this lyin' that's gitti«*jt0 be
bo common, but if you v">c f° utJIU'a

j*. vr, several yeurs ngo. 1 was run-
«rng a freight on the Burlington. Was
going west one afternoon with nothin1
but u caboose, Hud orders to 'run
wild.' Got a little ways out from Bur*
liugton whon sunset oamo, und on gcin'
out to light the headlight my Hremun
found no oil in the lump. Came buck
tu tho tender, ami, tn our surprise,
there wasn't an mince of illuminating
oil aboard. Tliere wasn't an oxtrn bit
in the caboosu eithur.
'- 'Here's a gu,' says I, 'out ou tho
road nnd no oil. It's ngainst tho rules
to run after sunset without a headlight.
If wo du we'll be discharged for disobeying orders. Tf wo don't go on
we'll be bounced fur carelessness in
starting out uti a run in that slmpo und
failing to gu through.'
" 'Yes, it's n bad go,' said my fireman, 'but I know n way out o' the

' 'Howl' says I.
' 'Bun out,1 sayBho. "Yes, I moan

'Do you mean it, Dave Y Bays 1.
For answer he grabbed his shovel
and began piling iu thu coal on a fire
already very hot. I squared myself
down in my seat, pulled ber back and
opened her up. In five minutes she
was clear baok nnd ns wido open ns sho

with hia shovelling.
"Well, air, whenever we'd striko un
up-grade it would begin to got too

steam. But when we camo to n downgrade again tho air would lighten up,
and sometimes we could almost aee
tho sun. Just as we out through the
hills on the brink of thn Missouri Val-
Wy It grew so dark that I shouted to
Dave that we'd have to givo up. 'Let
her go/ he replied; 'wait till wo striko

"Suro enough, in two minutes wo
shot down into the valley an' into the
sunshine. Over by Omaha tho red
sun was settin' low down close to the
