NUMBER !
The Winnipeg Boom.
Many people predicted tlmt tlie
great real estate boom at Winnipeg
would result in disaster. Tlie pri
paid for city lols were fabulous, aud
the number of fortunes made in
speculation was reported to be immense, This year has revealed much
of the true inwardness of the real
estate boom, and the bottom.facta
show that there was much in it-
rotten and unreal. Real estate did
undoubtedly go up far beyond its
intrinsic value, and successful speculators realised wonderful sums on
their investments; but many of tho
reported sales were merely shams,
traps in which to take the unwary
who had hard money in their pockets.
A man would buy a property for
say $100,000, and pay little or no
money on it He at once asked
$160,000 to $200,000 for it Failing to find a bona fide customer at
these figures, he wonld get a decoy
to take it aud pay $1000, which the
owner had hint him for thnt purpose. The transaction having.ne
quired a bona lido appearance would
be at once made public. The two
meit. would pass round as millionaires, and somo person with more
money than brains would be induced
to offer the decoy $23,000 or $50,-
000 on his bargain. The result of
this Mnd of speculation it would be
easy to predict. The bottom of the
business has fallen out, and beneath
the prosperous surface men nro now
finding many skeletons. Millionaires are being disrobed, and it is
found that they never owned a
thousand dollars absolutely their
own. Of course veal estate in Win-
ajpag has fallen, and greut loss will
result It-Ir fortunate, however,
that the fall has not been great,
compared with the rapid advance.
It may he that, on tho whole, this
speculative boom has been of somo
benefit to the city. It certainly
was an advertisement which brought
many people to Manitoba and gave
them a personal interest in the country, lt had the effect, also, of olr-
dilating *' good deal of money, if it
left Mme penniless. But the danger
now to be annhended is that real
TlirlllliiK Prairie Incident.
What is that?
Look closer and you will seo that it
is a gaunt, grim wolf, oreeping out of
the littlo .grove of cottonwoods towards n butlalo calf gamboling around
its mother.
Raise your oyes a little more and
von will see that the prairie beyond it
is alive with buffalo. Count them!
You might as well try to count the
leave, on a great maplo! They are
moving foot by foot as thoy crop the
juicy gross, and living waves rise and
fall as tho herd slowly sweep on. Afar
out to the right nnd left—more specks
on the plain, are tho. flankers—bravo
ola>^umilos, which catch a bito of
gnu and then sniff tho air nnd scan
the horizon for intimation of danger.
The*.**      	
estate in   Winnipeg  may  fall as
muoh below its real value aa it went
above during the boom.   When the
watera of a rirer strike ono bank
through whioh they are unable to
penetrate, they are almost certain to
be deflected to the opposito bank.
So  with publio opinion, and with Ljjtaring over the'settinJwnaUhe^lu!
trade.   The decline of real estate in  W mountains, and glad that'hair
Winnipeg has been accompanied by ±^'8,„X *£ £-*£

decline in many other
Merchants who were inflated by
tha boom find goods lying on tlieir
shelves for whioh they cannot find
customers. They have carried heavy
slocks with a light capital, and they
can carry thein no longer. There ia
eveiywheii* want of continence anil
a tendency towards panic. This is
a [»al danger, uml it may como to
|>asa Aat people who so eagerly
rushed to the wonderful city of the
plains will be seised with a greater
eagerness to escape. But Winnipeg has a position and resources
whioh nre of unquestionable value.
In spite of booms and reactions she
must continue to bo a city of large
uopnla'-pn, trade and influence.
When property has found its true
level, and peoplo become content to
accept a fair return for the capital
and energy expended, Winnipeg
will march on with a progress more
sure, tf left swift, than sho has yet
experienced.
tjhe sentinels of the hord, and
well tbey can be trusted.
b wolf creep, nearer. ■
All the nfternoon the great herd has
fad in peace, and a. it slowlymoves to-
wards the distant rif% it is all unconscious that danger is aw. took you
well and watch the wolf, for you are
going to see such n sight as not one
Kan in ten thousand lias ever beheld.
Orecp—crawl—skulk—now behind a
knoll—now drawing himself over tho
grass—now raising hi. head above a
thistle to mark tho locality of its victim. Tt i« a lone, shambling, skulking wolf,'him. and spiteful and treacherous. Wounded or ailing, lio hns
been left to get along ai best he may;
nnd his green eyes light up with fiercer
blaze as he draws nearer to his unconscious prey. ' -
There! No, he is yet too far away.
Creep - - creep — creep! Now he Ib
twenty feet away—now fifteen—now
ten. He hugs the earth, gathers his
feet under him, and he bounds through
the air as if shot from n gun. Ho iB
rolling the calf ovor and over on the
grass m three soconds after ho springs.
Now watch!
A cry of poin from the cult—a furious bellow from tho mother as she
wheel, and charges the wolf—a startled
movement from a dozen of the nearest
animals, nnd a rush begins. Tlio ono
wolf is magnified into n hundred, tlio
hundred into a thousand. Sharp,
short bellows—notes of alarm—and in
fifty seconds aftor the wolf Iub wet his
fangs with blood, that living mass is
in motion to get away from an un
known terror.
Tho waves rise higher and higher as
the confusion spreads. One instant it
soeniB as if 10,000 solid acros of prairie
wore moving bodily away; again waves
rise and fall as the cowards behind
rush upon those in front, who want to
sniff tho air aud learn the danger. In
ono minute the alarm runs down the
hord to the leaders, aud further than
tho eye can see tho ontire herd is going off at a mad gallop, heads down,
eyes rolling, and no thought but that
of escape. If Lako Erie were to dash
itself against a wall, the shock would
be no greater than the awful crash
with which this mass of rattling hoofs,'
sharp horns, and hairy bodies would
meet it. Tho clatter of hoofs and rat-
tio of horns would drown the noise of
a brigade of cavalry galloping ovor a
stone-paved road.
Ride out on thoir trail. Hore where
tho stampede began the ground is torn
and furrowed as if a thousand cannon
had been firing solid shot at targets.
Horo and there aro calves which hnve
been gored or crushed; here and there

look into each other's faces. It grows
louder as women turn pale and mon

din which strikes terror to the heart.
"Iuiliiuis!" they whisper. Nol A

heavy wagon wheels to soo Ihe straugo

living wave which sweeps'along with
the power of a tornado, followed by
others more fierce and strong, and the
camp is blotted off the face of the
earth moro completely than by any
power of heaven. Nothing to bo

followed wave across the spot, ovor the
bank, into the stream and across, and
when the last of Ihe herd has passed,
the keenest hunter can find nothing on
the spot of wood or iron, of cloth, or

Onr Federal Relations.
It has been said that the pimple
of British  Columbia are  persistent
beggars, and tlmt overy Cniiiulian
minister   ivlin   visits   our shores is
pestered by all manner of unreasonable requests.    Tlio |«ople who say
that are themselves   unreasonable,
and they are impertinent.    There is
not  a  province in the Dominion
whose people are more independent
tban the people of British Columbia.
Our independence comes from a conviction  of onr own strength and
resources.   In point of territory we
are firat in the confederation.   We
have as fine land as can be found on
tbe continent     Our climate is admitted by all comers to be immea-
.  surably superior to  tbat of any
other province.    We have shipping
facilities which are unsurpassed anywhere.    There is not another province  where one can find native resources so abundant and valuable.
We have rich mines of gold, silver,
lead, iron, coal, and other minerals,
and they are both widespread and
practically exbaustless.    We have
timber without limit, and of superior quality, and our fish, fill's and
game are sought after by all  tbe
world.    Our scenery is magnificent,
And presents more variety thnn can
be found in all tbe other provinces
put together.. Possessing these sub-
stantial resources and advantages we
may well afford to be independent.
We ask no favors of the Canadian
government or any one else.    All
wo ask for is justice and fair play.
It may be true that representatives
of the federal government who honor
ub with a visit sometimes have had
to carry away with them many petitions.     But there is ti good and
substantial reason for this.    British
Columbia is of all the provinces
most remote from the capital, and
most difficult of access.   The visits
of federal ministers are, consequent-
ly, like those of the angels, few and
far between.     And it seems quite
impossible for us to impress upon
the  federal authorities any intelligent idea of our position nnd requirements.    No province in the Dominion has buen so persistently misunderstood.    People in tbe east cannot
comprehend  why  an officer or a
clerk in British Columbia finds it
impossible to live and develop on
forty  or fifty dollars a month, or
why our mail service should require
an expenditure so much out of proportion to the postal revenue. These
things are well enough understood
in this country; anil when persons
in   authority  come among ua it is
perfectly   natural   tlmt   we  should
take the opportunity of endeavoring
to make them acquainted with facts
aa   they   exist   among    us.      In
some respect, we have lieeu treated
fuit-ly enough l.y the Dominion government;  in others om ilulita have
lifit  been i-e.peot.eil.   Mir Alexander
Ciiliiphell   iM'I'ived  at  Viet.nl in   last
Friday.    He comes, we pi'i'tiuuie, as
A   representative of   the Canadian
government, und on his return to
Ottawa he will undoubtedly report
many things concerning us to his
colleagues.   Ws hope tliose who instruct Sir Alexander in this province will draw his attention judiciously to those matters which have
been   retarding  our progress, and
which we may fairly ask the federal
government to adjust.     Although
. possessed of an immense territory,
in population we are the smallest of
all the provinces.   Our revenue is
by no moans large, and cannot be
until we have a large Immigration.
Bot if tht federal government neglects to aid in tho development of
tb* country, while it holds in possession large tracts of our valuable
land, Sir Alexander ought to be able
to see that his government is stand-
.  Ing in the way of its own interests.
There ara roads needed through the
government lands, if tbey are to be
made available for settlement; there
are  dykes to be built;  there are
postal routes to be established; and
means of intercourse must be provided) or else people cannot reasonably be expected to take up these
lands.      The   fedenl  authorities
should see it their duty to contribute towards these things, for in so
doing they will  be increasing the
value of their own possessions.   It
cannot be expected that tho municipalities or the local government will
undertake  to reclaim or open up
regions from which they receive no
return whatever.   We ho:«the project of connecting the Shuswap and
Okanagon lakes by a canal will not
amp* Sir Aleunder'a notice, and
that he will study the effect of the
opening up and development of the
Kootenay country. These are mutters whicli fairly belong to the federal government, nnd they are of
very great concern to us, Then
there is the mail subsidy. Before
Sir Alexander Campbell leaves this
province, we hope, the Northern
Pacific railway will be open for
traffic to Seattle. The ojieuing of
this road will tn a gieii' extent
change the course ot* trade. East-
ern freight unil passengers for British Columbia should undoubtedly
come over thai road, ami so should
Olll'  mails.     There should he a daily
mail line from Seattle in New WV.i-
niilistei- unil Victoria. We lad
the subsidy necessary to secure this
would be comparatively small, und
that Sir Alexander will liu able to
see his way to recommend it to his
government. We hope, also, that
during his visit Sir Alexander
Campbell will tako tho trouble to
visit the interior and judge for himself whether we have not tiio re-
sources of a large and populous
province. Let hint not fall into the
error, too commonly mn'do by visitors, of supposing that Victoria is
British Columbia. The mainland
has for many years paid a heavy
tribute to the provincial capital be.
cause there the ocean mail service
ends, and thore our freight and passengers have been transhipped and
assessed with heavy costs. When
the avenues of trade havo been
changed, the people of the mainland
may reasonably expect to be placed'
upon an equal footing with lhe people of the island, and for this we
look to the federal government's
assistance. Sir Alexander Campbell should remember that wc nrs
paying a very large sum every year
into the Dominion treasury in the
shape of customs dues, an'1 our
freights are very heavy. Tho establishment of a regular line of steamers fro.ui Seattle to the mainland
direct would help us much ii
this direction. Wc hope Sir Alex
ander will stny with us long enough
to obtain an intelligent impression
of this province, and that his visit
may be one of uninterrupted pleasure and satisfaction to himself.

Illegal Billing. — Several complaints have reached us from up river
witli regard to selling liquor on board
the steamers to persons on shore At
Harrison rivor, on tho 23rd ult.. it is
alleged that a considerable quantity of
liquor was thus obtained, some of
which found its way among tho In*

traffic ii contrary to law and Miould be
•topped.
Fisheries. -The total value of fish
taken in tlm Dominion during the
year 1882 was $10,824,002, being an
increase of $1,000,929 over the previous year. British Columbia's catch
represents 81,842,075, showing an increase ovor 1881 of 0388,353. But
the inspector points out that tho value
put upon the fish catoh of 1882 was
considerably lower than that of the
previous year. If the valuation had
been made on the samo basis, 1882
would have shown ovor 82,000,000.
The value of vessels, nets and other
implements employed in fishing in this
province is given at 8220,070, and the
value of canneries and other fishing
stations nt 8402,000. The fishing
operations gave employment to 5,215
persons.

Polick Court.- -Thero were 19 cases
before tho polico magistrate on Mou:
day, and one yestorday. Tlm most important cases on Monday were thoso
of Williams (white) and Williams
(half-breed) for supplying liquor to
Indians. Williams the white man was
fined 8300 and committed to 6 months'
imprisonment, und the othor Williams
was fined 850. In tlm first case it appeared that tho defendant had dis*
posed of about 50 bottles of liquor to
Indians in one day. If ho fails to pay
the tine he will remaiu in gaol 12 mos.,
which serves him right. Tho other 17
cases on Monday wero chiefly drunk
and disorderly, and the fines ranged
from 80 to §10 each. Yostorday an
Indian camo up on a charge of resisting tho polico and was sent down for 1
mo. with hard labor.
The Reliance Accident.—In addition to'breaking her shaft last week,
the Reliance Buffered other damage.
The piston rod was driven through
the and of tho cylinder with such
force that it knocked oft' one end. This
allowed the steam to escape in immense
quantities. The end of tho cylinder
which was blown out is directly in
front of the pantry door. A large
piece of metal struck tho door, breaking it, and the pantry was filled with
hot steam. The Chinese cook, Ah
Jim, who happened to be in the pantry
at the time, was frightened almost to
death, aud jumped through tho window into the river. The current car*
ried him down stream rapidly and beforo holp could reach him "ho disappeared. The Reliance came down late
on Friday night, with one crank work*
ing. Tho wheel was removed here
and she went down to Victoria on
Monday in tow of the Rithet.

EXPLOSION OF THE POWDER WORKS.
At 2:50 Inst Sunday afternoon tho
powder works and muguzino near Vale
exploded with terrific force, blowing
everything to pieces. The explosion
was caused by bush tires which have
for some time been ruging in the vicinity. There wore 50 tons of glycerine
and about 400 boxes of powder. The
glycerine burned like pork. Mr. Redgrave, superintendent of the works,
was on tho roof at tho time, nud was
blown a considerable distance up, but
suffered very littlo injury. Mrs. Redgrave was blown out of tho' door of
her houso, but was not much hurt.
There wero no lives lost, but a horse
had its head blown off. The powder
works were situated about U miles below Yale, but the concussion was felt
very severely in the town. A great
many windows were broken, and a
good deal of glassware and crockery
was destroyed. All the windows were
blown out of U. Nelson's store, tbe
H. B. Co.'s store doors were blown
open, nnd so were those of Douglas &
Deighton. McCartney's drug Btore
was considerably damaged, and in all
directions were effects of tho explosion
seen. Many people in the town were
greatly frightened, and some fainted.
The whole ground shook as if there
had been an earthquake. Fires still
rage in all directions, and the citizens
are constantly on the watch. The
bridge between Emory and Yale iB
burnt.

•Sabbath Pesecratlou.
Upon this subject a, good deal has
been Baid and and published from time
to timo. Our view has been to first
cause the law of God and the land to
be Respected by those in authority and
who are expeoted to Bet a good example. The railway contract expressly
forbids Sunday work, as wo proved by
a quotation some timo since. So long
ns the railway contractors can go ns
they are doing it is evident the Sabbath
desecration will continue. Of late it
is even growing worse, ns may be witnessed any Sunday at the machine
shop here or along the line. The
Churchman*s Gazette has had a good
deal to say of late upon the Sunday
desecration question, but no attention
is paid to the articles published. Hence
it may be as well understood at once
that something more than words is
required. Now that high government
officials (who may be supposed to have
respect for Christian teaching and regard for law and order) are in the
province, it would be a good time to
mnke an earnest effort to cheek the
evil complained uf. We believo that
if united action was taken by the
British Columbian, the Churchman's
Gazette, and the Inland Sentinel the
law of the Dominion and tliu contract
between the government and the railway contractors would bo enforced.
It is evident that something more than
preaching and taino writing is required.
The Sentinel means business and is
ready for labor and expense, if necessary.— Yale Sentinel.

The County Court.
Editor Columbian:—Your remarks
respecting tho frequent postponement of
of-the County Court at New Westminster, in the Columbian of 28th inst., ore
vory good, and I think would be reechoed by every person iu tho New
Westminster District. It is about time
there was a most emphatic denunciation
of suoh proceedings by the public, and
some step should be taken to have this
kind of work brought prominently before
the Minister of Justico for tho Dominion
during his stay, and also to find out
whether the judges are appointed for
{tub-lie convenience, or whether the pubic are to he i>ut about just to suit the
whims of the judges.   Yours, kc,

The Mechanics' Institute.
Eoitor Columbian.—Not long Bince a
notice was published in Victoria that if
somo arrangements were uot mado immediately to raise the income of the
Mechanics' Institute, the place would
have to bo closed. This sounds something liko business. But how are things
in this eity? Well, some threo or four
years ago, ours was closed, doubtless for
want of the stnne article that keeps us
all moving around, viz., money. At
January lst, 1881, a meeting was called
of all respectable people in town, at
which nearly all present put down his
namo for $3 (widen hod beon proposed as
sufficient) and one for $10 ana others for
(5. Those who gavo tho most were thoso
who have no time to visit tho place, but
showed tlieir manliness by stepping forward for the credit of New Westminster,
the good of thoso not able to pay, and
strangers. Tho place was re-opened immediately, and tho first year tho Librarian received 912.50 per montli for 10
hours' business, .1(15 days in tho year,
and sinco lie has received tho large sum
of $15, No books have beeu bought, and
the placo has been kept alive by concerts,
ftc, aud the largo sum of 25 cents por
month from folks who wanted books such
as aro left. Plenty of folks mako use of
the Institute, but give nothing. Because
thoy aro all stingy? Not at all; but bo-
cause a notice outside says—"Reading
Room Free!" Anyone knows this is
nonsense, Peoplo complain that tho
Librarian is not there always to wait on
thom. Well, pay a Librarian enough to
board himsolf decently, Bay $30 pot-
month, and he will pay somo attention
to folks. I hear tho Viotoria one gets
$50, At auy rate, ho always gets enough
to pay his board, In Victoria they
charge 910 per annum in advance. This
Is not muoh for 905 days' admission. If
the place Is woll' conducted we can got
cash from quite a large number and help
from othor sources, Theso men who
come in now for nothing will be only too
glad to give 50 cents or 91 per month to
keep themselves out of the rain. Then
let some of our wonderful Blue Ribbon
folks give a number of concerts and let a
fellow In free If he will only join tho fl,

NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
■New York, July 22.—The Sun's
cablegram from London says:—Publio
feeling in Franco among all classes hai
become extremely bitter towards England and the relations between the
two countries are becoming decidedly
unpleasant and uncomfortable. The
causo of it has been comprehensive,
including England's general hostility
to each step taken by France in her
foreign polioy, the English attitude in
relation to French possessions in Africa, Madagascar and Tonquin, the Pak-
enhnm incident at Tamatave and the
DeLeaseps imbroglio. The two countries separated widely when the Egyptian war opened and circumstances
have since multiplied to widen the
broach. The canal difficulty, the latest difference that has arisen, grows
more nnd more complicated, and ns uu
element of political difficulty in England promises to be the immediate
occasion of the downfall of the present
government. It is said,apparently with
some authority, that Gladstone will
exhaust every means to induce DeLosseps to make satisfactory concessions;
that, failing to do so, as he certainly
will, he will submit the agreement to
tho Houso and then go to the country.
London, July 22.—Gladstone will
to-morrow in the Houso of Commons
officially declare the Government's position on the Suez canal question, and
well informed persons have no doubt
that instead of allowing discussion, the
Government will foreclose all discussion by announcing its decision, -for
the Premier desires no debate. Tho
cabinet remains seriously divided on
the whole aubjeet, Childers openly
cherishes the hope thnt when the question of tho Government's agreement
with DeLosseps is placed before tho
Commons, if a division be asked, tho
majority will ratify the compact. A
majority of Childers' colleagues, however, think he is possessed of unreasonable hopo and describe him upon
this question as living in a fool's paradise. The cabinet agreement admits
that DeLosseps, by constructing the
present Suez canal, secured a monopoly
of the right to out intoroceauic tinnals
in Egypt, and to induce him to dig a
second and parallel water-way to accommodate commerce, whioh is now
often blocked and seriously delayed
because of the inadequacy of the present ditch, stipulates that the British
Government will secure him all the
additional land he may need for canal
purposes and will lend him £3,000,000
nt 0_ per cent, for fifty years. In ro-
t urn" for these vast advantages the government binds DeLosseps to such uu
increase in the British representation
in the canal directory ns will make it
proportionate to the actual amount of
English money invested in both canals;
to fin-sh tho second canal within fivo
years, and to place the management of
the ports of Suez, Ismailia and Port
Said in the hands of Englishmen. Tho
compact, in addition, secures to DeLosseps the life presidency of the company.
Nkw York, July 22.—The general
condition of affairs in the Western
Telogrnph office is worse thnn on Friday. The operating room lias as many
men and women us on previous days,
but the small number of first class
operators among them have become
exhausted with over-work. ' From
special dispatches received from London it appears that the Western Union
company has been endeavoring to engage English telegraph operators to
take the place ot the men out on
strike, but for some cause, best known,
to the officers of the company, according to reports, has countermanded tho
order. The company's officers claim
to have constant applications from
operators, including members of tho
brotherhood. The latter, however,
dony this, and say that on the contrary thero have been many accessions
to their ranks. That the company is
to-day crippled there iB no denying,
for yesterday not over 700 messages
were sent out, when in the. usual
course of things there should be 18,-
000. One of the members of the
brotherhood, who is still at work in tho
office of the Western Union, reported
there were seventy-three persons, men
and women, ut work iu the ofiiee yesterday, of whom half wero dummies.
Two men at a table with a lady operator were unable to read the call for
New York, and had to ask her what it
was. The work woa virtually at n
standstill all day, as the operators, who
have had to work night and day, at
least fifteen hours each, are completely
worn out, although they eat and sleep
in tho building. All accounts differ,
but tho fact stands out thnt the company is in n bad position. The Herald
says: Ou the whole the situation appears to be decidedly more favorable
to tho strikers than to the company,
as tho difficulties nnd embarrassment
of tho latter must increaso far moro
than those of the former by the prolongation of tha strike. Meanwhile
public opinion is growing in favor of
tho operators.
Alexandria, July 23.—The sanitary
commission has decided that all passengers must undergo n medical examination before leaving Egypt. The
commissioners are considering prominent sanitary measures to be enforced
against vessels arriving at Egyptian
ports from Bombay. The deaths from
cholera on Saturday numbered 381 in
Cairo and its suburbs, 03 at Mansurah,
17 at Samanoud, 20 at Mehulum, 03

AU business and agriculture ib
The customs receipts nre
decreasing. Two months' delay in
legal judgment has been granted. In
the interior the rinderpest is worse
and tho natives continue to eat diseased meat. The cholera has appeared
at Dainanhour, where crowds of people passed through the cordon. They
have collected together and are badly
lodged und fed.
Cairo, July 23.—Fifteen hundred
inhabitants of Bulak were removed up
the Nile. The owners of the burned
houses will be indemnified. The natives oppose the removal of patients to
hospitals. The disease is very sudden
iu its effects. People frequently fall
dead in the streets. The epidemio is
sprendiug northward as well as southward. The disease is Bpreading everywhere. _ The mortality increases hourly.
The evictions at Bulak were ordered
by the native ministers. The inhabitants were suddenly driven out of their
homes by the police during Friday and
Saturday nights, and wero huddled on
board barges. Hundreds evaded the
police and fled to the centre of tlm
oity, taking with them their filthy bedding and rags. Eight hundred of
thein were laiidod at Turah to-day.
General Woods' troops caused others
to return. Since then thero 1ms beeu
a case of cholera among. General
Woods' forces at Turah. The deaths
at Cairo recently numbered 481 botween 8 u. ui. and 0 p. m. ou Sunday.
Owing to the fearful mortality the
natives were panic-stricken uud British officers had to bury the dead.
London, July 23.—Gladstone announced in the Commons this afternoon that he would not usk parliament
nt this session to sanction the agreement in regard to tho Suez canal made
with DeLosseps. The announcement
of the prime minister wus received with
cheers by members of tlie opposition.
London, July 27.—Cross, undersecretary for India, stated tu thu commons to-day that 1101 deaths from
cholera occurred iii tlm Bombuy provinces during the first week in June.
London, July 27.—An individual in
the London docks, who, it is said, lias
cholera was taken ill Wednesday. A
cose of supposed cholera is reported
from Wales. It resulted in death within twenty-four hours after the victim
was taken.- Another cose, supposed to
have been cholera, happened at Kensington u few dayB ago. The victim,
who was a drunkard, died two hours
after being taken ill. The officers of
the local government and board of
health do not believe tliat these are
isolated cases simply, but an outbreak
of Asiatic cholera. Several deaths have
annually occurred from disease at London at this Benson of the year which
are classified as cholera, but which tire
difficult to distinguish from aggravated
diarrhoea. There havo been several
hundred coses of tho latter disease
weekly tins summer, which is in excess
of the average.
Alexandria, July 27.—Among the
number of deaths from Cholera at Cairo
yestorday, wore eleven British lieutenants and soldiers, who succumbed to
tho disease.

Two Tragedies of Niagara.
More than twenty yearn ago Niagara
witnessed a tragedy which, while of a
heartrending character, was marked by
an act of heroism seldom equalled in
grandeur. Mr. Charles Addingtou, n
young man 23 or 24 yearn of age, was
th    "
affianced to Mrs. De Forest, both being
residents of Buffalo. One day a luippy
party, comprising Mrs. DoForest, Miss
DeForest, a young daughter, Eva, a
beautiful child five "or six yeurs old,
and "Charley" Addington, us his
friends were accustomed to call him,
visited the Falls.
Thoy crossed thu bridge to Goat
Island, aud, while resting under the
trees, little Eva strayed away from tlie
group, und, approaching the bank of
thu narrow but deep aud swift stream
that rushes between Goat Island aud
thu small island lying between it nnd
the main American rapids, was amusing herself by casting sticks into the
water and watching them as they
whirled swiftly away. Mrs. DeForest,
alarmed for her child's safety, requested Charles Addingtou to bring her
back. Charley at once proceeded to
the bank, and, thinking to givo the
little one a fright, approached her
stealthily from behind, nnd, catching
hor under thu arms, held Iut threateningly over the sti-eain.
The startled child threw her arms
up over her head, and instantly she
slipped through Addiugtun's hands and
fell into thu rapids.
Thu realization of the horrible calamity must, have come home to Adding-
ton's bruin with thu rapidity of the
lightning's flash. He saw that his rush
act had cost the child's life, and that
one desperate chanco of saving her remained—that the world was at an ond
for him forever. Tearing oft' Iub coat,
he rushed along thu bank until he had
passed little Eva, who was kept afloat
by her clothing; then, plunging in
ahead of her, he seized the child and
desperately strove to throw her on the
bank. As he mnde the effort hu fell
buck into tho rapids mid wus whirled
over the small fall that intervenes between the American and the Horseshoe
Fulls. Little Eva struck the top of
tho bank, but ull power had apparently
gone from hor, and sho rolled baok into
tho stream aud wns hurried to her
dreadful fate. Thu mother and sister
stood powerless aud paralyzed with
horror while a tragedy almost instantaneous in ite action passed before
their eyes, leaving its dark cloud hanging ovor all their future lives. Charley Addington had made a hero's
atonement for his thoughtless and
reckless uct.
Ail accident with very dramatic accompaniments occurred a few yeais
after the sod event thnt cost Charley
Addingtou and Eva DeForest their
lives. Onu morning, soon nfter daybreak, the early-risers at the Falls discovered something moving on a huge
old log or trunk of a tree, wliich for
years had shown itself above the boiling liipids on the American aide, having been caught by and firmly wedged
into the rocks on its way to the fulls,
Looking downward from tiie bridge,
this log wus aud still is in full sight,
in tho fiercest part of tho rapids, considerably nearer to thu small island on
the American side of Goat Island than
to the American shore. The moving
object was soon found to bo a man, and
it wus evident that his boat had boen
carried over the falls during the night,
while hu hud miraculously been cast
against the log, by which he had managed to stop his fearful rush toward
death. Dispatches wero immediately
scut to Buffalo, to thu coast life-saving
service, aud Capt. Dorr hastened to
Niagara by a special train, carrying
with liim two metallic life-boats, and
plans to save the man were concerted.
But, before nll the arrangements were
completed, the news had been spread
abroad, and many thousands of persons had reached tho fulls by special
trains.
The first attempt at rescue was by
means of a large Francis metallic lifeboat attached to a cubic, which was
Blacked off from a bridge opposite the
log aud guided by Bide ropes. The
boat had uot got far from thu bridge
when the tierce rapids seized it, turned
it mum! and round, and seemed to bo
endeavoring to crush iu its sides. The
cable snapped like a whip-cord, nnd
the poor follow, who had been hopefully awaiting thu effort made for his
rescue, saw the bout whirled puit him
aud carried over tho falls, us if iu
mockery of his would-be rescuers.
Considerable time was then used in
deliberating ou a new plan, and it was
proposed to fasten a cable to some
building on the American side, to carry
it over to the island until it would sag
near tho log, and then to rescue the
man by menus of a bosket lot down by
rings, and to bo let down and pulled
in by smaller ropes. The materials
for this experiment could nut be procured, so nt hist it was decided to send
down a strongly constructed raft iu
the Biuuu manner as the life-boat hnd
boen launched; and if it renchod the
man in safety, to ease it over toward
the small island, from whence his rescue would be comparatively easy. Tho
raft was built, but it was four o'clock
in thu afternoon before nll was ready.
The day had passed without the flight
of tiinu being noticed.
The excitement was intense. Men
and women, who had stood many hours
without food, were plainly agitated.
The raft moved; it withstood bravely
tho t 'h\ assaults of tho angry rapids.
It uoarod the log. The man stood up
nud waved his arms. The raft came
within his reach nnd ho got on to it,
ate tho food, drank a small quantity of
weak brandy and water that had been
put on board, and fastened himself to
the lashings which had beon prepared,
aud tho intent of whieh ho understood.
Then the raft  was cautiously and
8 teadily moved toward the island with
its precious freight.
Ti/e people shouted, and many wept
from overwrought feelings. Suddenly
the raft' came to a stand. The rope
was fast. It had caught in a rock.
To attempt to force it was to risk its
parting, and the fatal consequence
could not be misunderstood. The
poor victim seemed to take in the situation and grow desperate. He unfastened the lashings, stood up, made a
spring from tho raft in the direction of
the island, and wns in tbe foaming
waters. Instantly he struck out for
the island. He seemed to be n powerful swimmer, and thousands of men
and women held their breath in painful suspense. Ho appeared to near
tho island in his desperate endeavors.
Then arose the cry: "He's saved!
Iic'h saved!''
But suddenly those on the bridge,
who could soe more distinctly from
their location, became aware that the
distance between the island and the
swimmer's head wOb gradually widening. There was another dreadful,
moment of suspense, and then the uu-
pitying rapids seized their prey, and,
apparently making sport of the efforts
that had been used to snatch him from
their grasp, twisted him round, and
whirled him along until they hurried
him over the precipice. As the poor
fellow went over a singular effect was
observable. The vast body of falling
water curves over the edge of tho falls
like a huge wheel, and, as the body
was shot forward bythe force of the
current, it seemed to leap completely
out of the wator, the feet being visible,
before it took the final plunge. The
deathlike silence that had fallen upon
the crowd wub broken by a fearful cry
-»sound mingling a wail, a howl and
a shriek in one. Many strong men as
well as. women fainted. They had
witnessed a tragedy more intense in
its puiufulness than any the drama
could present, and one not likely to be
soon forgotten.

NELLIE'S MEMORIES.
After tea the boys beguiled us into
a game of rounders on the lawn, and
then the dew fell, and the twilight
came on, mid one star after another
peeped out between the dark old garden trees; and over the ivied wain of
Sunnyside there stole a large white
moon, then Rill and Oharlio went to
bed, and Seymour bade reluctant goodnight, while Halcot, pleading fatigue
and a heavy day, crept off after them;
and still Dudley and I walked up and
down the lawn where the moonlight
had spread for us a narrow path of
light.
"How lovely the old Priory garden
must look to-night, Dudloy, with its
white statutes aud urns; if you had
not to go to the train I should make
you take me there!" *
"By-the-bye, Nellie, that reminds
me that time is going on; let me look
at my watch—I thought so; in another
five minutes I must bo off to meet
father.   You will have supper ready.
So in we went frum the moonlight
to the warm radiance of lamp-lighted
rooms. As I stood at the hall door
watching him out, he suddouly came
back and kissed me.
•'Nellie, you are looking more like
yourself than you have done for six
months past; all your color has come
back; father will be delighted to see
you; oome, Nettle, old girl," and master and dog ran down tho court together. ,
When the gate closed, I went to tho
glass to see the change Dudley had
noticed; yes, it was true, the pallor I
had gained from the fatigue of nursing
poor mother was replaced by old freshness of complexion. I turned gayly
away and arranged the supper table,
half hoping Bruce and Loo might return, and then went my nursery
rounds.
They were nll sleeping soundly, poor
Halcot with a pile of lesson boobs
heaped on a chair beside him, ready
for an early study; hia little silver
watch ticking peacefully at his head;
so I descended to the dining-room and
took up my work again. My thoughts
were busy and time passed unheeded,
till I woke up from my reverie with a
start, and glanced at tho time-piece;
it was half-past ten; surely it must be
wrong—no, my watch, and tho chiming
of the old church clock corroborated
the fact; half-past ten, and they wero
due at half-past nine; father must have
missed his train, and, if I remembered
rightly, Dudley had Baid that there
would not ho another till half-past
eleven; poor boy, how tired he would
be! surely he would never wait at the
station all that time; and Bruce and
Louie too, after all. they had beon beguiled into a supper at the Hermitage
—incorrigible trunnts that they were.
Hush, surely that was not Dudley's
key moving in the hall door,—yes,--
no, that was not his footstep, his
never lagged so, nor was it father's
sharp quick tread. I laid down my
work in some perplexity, and rose,
and at that moment Dudley opened
the door. Do you know what it iB to
sit quietly sewing by your own fireside, with "the low beginnings of content" just stirring pleasantly at your
heart, and then to lift your head at
the sound of an opening door, and
see on tbe face you lovo belt on earth
the worldless anguish of one who
brings ill tidings! Cau you realize
the awful start—the "death in lifo,"
■—the hand of ice clutching nnd tearing at your heart-string, and binding
down your tongue—can you realize
this! thank Heaven if you cannot.
"Oh, Dudley, oh, my dear, what has
happened?" for he was standing white
as death iu the middle of the room,
just moving his dry Hp» without a
sound, and with such a look in his eyes.
"Oh, brother, brother, don't look like
that, do anything but look liko that;
only tell me what has happened, and
I will tiy to bear it—anything but this
suspense."
I know he tried to speak, to tell rae
what had happened, but in his dumb
agony could utter no articulate sound;
he only held me to him with a grasp
like death, and a sobbing sound came
heaving up from his chest. What
could I do but wait till the awful hysterical emotion should pass and leave
him calmer—then! -
"Tell me, dear, only one word—one
word, for pity's sake—iny father!"
He shuddered violently, then raised
his eyes to heaven, and when they met
mine I threw myself upon his breast
with a great and bitter cry. Ah, me!
I needed no word to tell me that we
had no father now. I think the sight
of my despair restored Dudley a little
to himself, and in another moment he
had recovered himself and was striving
to soothe me.
"Hush, Nell, hush; don't sob so,
you frighten me; we must try to be
calm, you und I, we have the children
to think of" (the children, poor things,
they were asleep). "Oh, my child,
•my child, you are breaking my heart."
He placed me in my low chair, and
would have rushed off to fetch mo
some restorative, but I would not let
him go; I held him tightly, and when
he saw that, he took mo in his arms
again and soothed me like a child,
soothed me even iu the midst of his
own-terrible anguish. My tears gave
rae relief, and when I could speak I
gasped out,
"How did it happen? when, where?"
Dudley's brow contracted, but ho
forced himself to speak.
"A railway accident—a collision-
death almost instantaneous 1 thank
Heaven at least for that."
"How do you know?" I laid my
hands on his breast heavily. "There
might be some mistake; who identified,
who saw him?"
"I did. Oh, Nell, don't ask me,
don't speak of it, so changed, ao pit-
ably mutilated, so " and then he
broke down, and laid his head in my
lap, and for a long, long time we wept
together.
Yet while I writhed beneath thii
heavy unforseen calamity, the mere
presence of Dudley and the Bight of
bis greater grief calmed and strengthened me; and though the hitter tears
■till flowed, the tension of my heart
seemed relaxed. If my grief was groat
fail was greater still, for on him devolved a new and awful responsibility;
Id future we should have none to
whom to look but to him—father now
•• well H brother, our sole support and
head. Thank Heaven, I remembered
all .thii! U rtiwigthened me. I raised
hia poor Head from my lap, and In a
whisper bade him rise; then I went
into ihe other room, aud'though the
light of tbe bright edopcr-tahle, the
light nnd the flowert arid the little festive preparations, mado me shudder
and turn oold, I would not give way,
bat got bread and wine aud brought
them to Dudley, and putting the latter
to hit Upe tomdm him take some.
"fflwTwM be in directly,*' I wmV
pered, "Louie and Bruce."   Dudley
put down his glass.
"I can't tell thom, Nellie, I can't,
something rises and chokes me whon I
try to Bpeak of it; what shall we dot"
"No need to tell them, dear Dudley:
oh, no need; your face nnd mine will
speak to them enough. Hark! is not
that their ring?" It was; we could hear
the opening of the hall door and tho
swoop of Louie's silk skirts across the
possago, her cheery voice and Bruce's
answering laugh, ond thoy entered, as
I knew they would, radiant and smiling.
"Whut! father not hero? naughty
man, he has punished us then and
gone to bed, Do you think he is still
awake, Nellie? may I go to hiin?"
Dudley Bank bnck in his chair with a
groan, nnd covered his face, and,
scarcoly knowing what I did, I threw
up' my hands with a wild gesture tor
silence, and then they saw my face,
ond as thoy did so, all Louie's happy
bloom faded"; while Bruce, impatiently
putting her aside, exclaimed:
■'What has happened? goud heavens!
will nobody speak ? Do you wish me to
go mad, Dudley ? Nellie, will one of
yon open your lips?'1
I laid my hand on Dudloy to keep
him silent, thon in a voice that did not
sound liko mine, but liko somebody
else's speaking at a distance, I told
them all; and when I had finished
Bruce was kneeling down by my little
table with his face hidden in his hands;
while Louie, giving me a long look of
agony, turned and left the room. I
Bat down on the floor and hid my face
against Dudley's knee, and for a long
timo we remained thus, till one of tho
servants came in to ask if she should
fasten up the house. Dudloy answered
her-—
"Yes, Hoster, shut up, and all of
you go to bod;" then lifting mo from
the ground—
"Nell, you must go to bed too, and
try nnd got some sleep; we shall be
having you ill noxt, and thon what will
become of us 1"
"Cnn I not stay a littlo longer with
you ?" I pleaded.
"No," ho answered, in thoso firm,
quiet tones of his; "I want to Bpeak to
Bruce, you must loavo us alono together. Good-night, Nellie darling."
So I went, but beforo I closed the
door I looked back: Dudley wee kneel
ing with his arm round his brother,
and Bruce's wild grief seemed hushed.
Do you Know what is moro intolerable than tho first hours of a great sorrow? I will tell you. It is the first
waking up after it and finding it all
true. Alas! I know it, I hnvo realized
it, and I know tlint calamity comes on
one at first witli a stunning force—its
very weight and intensity seems to
deaden its anguish. Wo say over nnd
over again to ourselves that It is impossible, we must dream it; and still
weeping on in our agony, wo say, "God
help us, that it is not so.'.' And thou
sleep comes nnd lulls us into oblivion,
or cheats ub into delusive dreams; so
that wo smilo, pour -fouls, ay, smile
while our dead nro lying under that
straight whito sheet in the room below, till we wake and find they aro
really uo longer with us, that it is all
no ghastly dream, but a living reality.
Oh, the awfulness of that waking;
when oven before the heavy-lidded
eyes open to the light of day, while yet
in the transition state between Bleeping and waking, wo aro conscious
somehow of an oppressive weight, a
sense of something wrung; and thon
the truth rushes upon us, and wo turn
our faces to the wall in the utter helplessness of despair!
But I did not turn my face to the
wall on that sad waking of mine; I
could uot lie with tho cool morning air
blowing over my face, and tho birds
singing in the garden below, and weep
my heart out with the and contrast of
my thoughts. Not mine cuuld be such
luxury of sorrow; I must be up nnd
doing, the household must bo told tho
heavy tidings -that at least should be
spared Dudley. So I arose, but never
did dressing seem such tedious labor to
iny trembling hands; again and again
I had to pauso aud struggle ngninst the
faintness that kept creeping ovor ine,
or shako off the icy chills that threatened to fetter my limbs.
Down in the orchard below a thrush
was caroling his morning song, nnd nu
the dewy lawn there lay tho shimmer
and sparkle of the bright June sun,
while far beyond in the meadows I
could hear tho damp cool rustle of the
mowers'scythes in the grass: such a
sweet calm hour for a heart to rest.
But for me! I turned away from tho
window wearily, and at that moment
there came a low tap at my dour. I
knew who it was, for I remembered 1
had told Charlie to bring his lessons tu
recite to ine as soon as he was dressed;
so I bade him enter, without hesitation.
"May I come in and say my leasona,
sister? I knew them all quite perfectly
except one, where* I can't pronounce
the names;" then, as he caught sight of
my face—
"What's the matter, Nellie ? nre you
111 1** For reply I stretched out my
arms to him, nnd as thu little fellow
sprang into them, and nestled his curly
head upon iny shoulder, I told him
guardedly and gently what had happened, and why he found me weeping.
He was quite still for a minute or two,
and then began kissing my neck and
stroking my face like a child.
'Poor Nell, poor Noll."
Poor Charlie, too," I said through
my tears, "for you will miss father
too!"
"Yes, but uot so much ns you will,
Nellie; you have known him so much
longer than I have, fur I am but a littlo
boy, you know; besides, I havo Dudley
and you to take enro of me, but who
will take care of you ?"
"We must do that for each other;
but, O Charlie, Charlie, think what it
will be never to hoar his kind tones,
his merry, gentle voice.'' .
"Hush, don't cry bo, Nell; we nhsll
meet him in heaven, shall we nu^—
father and mother, too, Don't you
remember what you told me about tlio
golden gate?"
''No, Charlie; what did I say ?"
'Oh, you told us a groat deal about
the golden duor with its shining gulden
leaves, which always stands open, nnd
is never to be shut till after the Judg-
mont-day; and whote, aa people went
up the ladder—good people, you know,
like father and mother—tlieir friends
waited for them at the top, nnd helped
them up and took them into the city.
You told us about it when little
Christian died, and when Halcot nnd
I were so sorry."
"Yes, I. remember; and, oh, my
child, we must try and live so that we
may meet him there; nnd though dear
father has gone without one word of
farewell, without leaving his dying
wishes, you and I must think what
they would have been hnd ho been
spared to speak them. We must try
and imagine what he would have snid
to each one of us, the yuungest as well
us the oldest; oh, Charlie!"
