It would be interesting to know,

The "Town Major" of the Timet
is a " comical cuss," and no mistake.
He manage! to keep up a "tempest
in a teapot" most of the time. The
gallant "Major" Has just acknowledged publicly that "he takes a great
ileal of whisky in his water." Thii
probably accounts for the Major's
style. He gets off a pretty good
one though on some Viotoria papers
when he sayn "Some sheets, which
require mangling, have letters from
Paris or London * * * Parisian
lettors wrote in Viotoria are very
interesting." So they are, Major,
but not more so than the last sentence quoted.
Those who regard our Governor-

wherever an honorable or right
honorable left a blank for it. To
have an outsider of standing and

limited, is by no means a bad thing
the people il scarcely strong enough
to make itself heard amid the
clamors of those who have axel

The Leary or Joggins log raft has
escaped the perils of the sea and
reached New York in safety. It ii
stated that there will result a profit
of (21,000 from the enterprise. Th.
success of the venture will naturally
lead to further attempts of the same
kind, but already hostility to this
method of shipping logs is being
aroused, both in Canada and the
United States. In Nova Scotia it
ia said that the shipment by the
Leary raft deprived forty-four
Canadian ichooner. ot a laid, and in
New York it ii urged that the piss-
age of these monitor nfti will be a
constant menace to the navigation of
the high seas, us disaster is sure to
overtake some of them, and the floating about of sections of such masses
of timber would prove a serious dan-
gcr to ocean steamships.
If Dr. Wild ii corroot about the

It would take half n century good,
for tho ordinary paper to get itself

pose that the sO'Culle,! christian

on earth would the papers do for

nations living in the security of
assured peacu—the people of the
Great Republic unanimously deciding to make tho best man president,
and then vying with each other in
carrying out hii orders—imagine
social hypocrisies and social sliiuns
utterly discredited—social vices diminishing rapidly to the vanishing
point, and banned by the contempt
nnd detestation of the majority -
imagine in fact, the shady side of
life put completely into the background, and such a reversal of tho
prevailing order of things that wo
would lie compelled to revise the
hackneyed quotation and writo
"Now man's humanity to man

of the principal, in the Puget Sound
opium smuggling ring, as he was apprehended in Chicago on Friday last

red handed he will not find it cosy to
escape thia time, and his conviction
will bo a step towards breaking up Ihe
ring which has thus far detlod tho law;
but Ilia capture and conviction will not

was rapidly enveloped in flames. Tho

Loxaox, Aug. 22.—The A'eiw, cjui-
menting upon the rejection of the international fliheries treaty by tho
United States senate, lays: "It is another example of the evils which the
disunionists are bringing upon thoir
country."
The Chronicle says:."This Unworthy
attempt to malic party capital out nf a
question which might involve too I wo
countries in war i, more likely to endear th. Republican party to the majority of native-born Americana,"
The Pall Mall Gazette, referring to
the rejection of the fisheries treaty,
uyi it is thankful that Mr. Chomber-
lsin'i minion hai not made the difficulty more serious thin it wai before.
Senator Morgan's speech, it says, wai
buncombe, The rejection of the treaty
was limply to relegate the whole question to an amicable settlement after
the presidential .lection. The paper
continue!: "Neither Englishmen nor
Americans are lunatics, and the world
will not be plunged into a bsth of
blood because opinions differ over,
kettle of fish. The matter will be
agiin negotiated after the election, and
in tho meantime we can cultivate an
India-rubberlike forbearance ind .
cool temper."
The St. James Gazette says thit the
modus vivendi will be continued for
two yean and then mattors will assume
a different complexion.
The SfimuW nyi lhat the people
of England will feel no diminished
friendship for Americans because, of
the rejection of the fishery treaty, but
theaetion cf the senate places the
United States and Canada in a position
in which it is easy for them to quarrel.

Great aud increasing interest is
beiug manifested by our cousins in
- the neighboring republic with re-
ipect  to tbe North Pacific coast
wa fisheries.   As a consequence of
the  two or three pioneer  fishing
schooners  from Gloucester, Mass.,
••'--Afcatimeout to test the fishing
g>,..d,  about  Puget  Sound and
viowity, ffik aa*h- satisfactory re-
suits, it ii s.t»ted that Port Townsend
ii about to become the centre of a
.   fishjngiiultwtry and interior export
, tnd* thit ho. but few parallels elsewhere.   An American paper says
that all Yankeedom has been in-
footed with the fishing fever on oc-
couot of the phenominol success of
the pioneer schooners, aud two hundred schooners are reported to be
getting ready to at once come to
thil coast; their first objective point
being Port Townsend.   It is stated
that this immigration will include
five thousand families.   Port Town-
send,  accordingly,  is  not  merely
going to boom; it is expected that
the ambitious port of entry will literally " hum."   The whole of Pugot
Sound cannot fail to be benefitted by
this impetus to the fishing industry,
and with our prospective close connection with the cities of the Sound,
their prosperity cannot be a matter
of indifferenoe to us.   The Portland
press calls attention to the fact that
there are good fishing grounds for
deep sea fishing just outside of the
Columbia bar, and urges the people
of Portland to take an active hand
in this enterprise.   The American
fish commission steamer Albatross is
making u scientific and test survey
this  Beason of the North   Pacific
American waters, and everything is
being done by our neighbors to take
advantage of tho lavish sea wealth
at their doors.   What is being done
in this connection with regard to
British Columbia's undoubtedly rich
sea farm! Nothing.  The Dominion
authorities have indefinitely   postponed action in the matter.
The Montreal  Witness,   a most
valuable general newspaper, gives
some very useful information to farmers with regard; to forage for cattle, especially for milch cows.   It
quotes from tho Prairie Fanner to
the effect that "silos and ensilage [
are to nearly all kinds of domestic
animals what cans and bottles, and
the vast amount of fruits, meats and
vegetables are to the family of the
well-to-do householder,"   When ensilage was first introduced the silos
were filled with the green corn as
quickly as possible, tramping and
packing it solidly,' ind wai weighted
down with nlank«,«wl stones: but it
the better way is to fill the silo four
or five feet at a time, and wait two
or three days until the temperature
risei to 130 or 140 degrees, then fill
again and io on until the silo is full,
When  the last day's   filling  has
been heated as before, it is covored
with tarred jiapcr, well lapped, and
, over this is placed rough inch lumber to exclude the air, and the whole
is weighted down with sawdust or
moist clay.   Of course, farmers in
B. C. wishing to save green crops in
this way should procure the latest
and most approved style of building
.  silo* and storing thorein.   Mr, B. S.
Hoxie, of Rock county, Wisconsin,
. writes:   " I believe there is no one
factor of farm economy of more importance than this, and the dairyman without a silo to preservo hii
fodder is laboring to great disadvantage, '-(bat good, ensilage is a proper
food for all farm animals is a well
established foot,.and those who have
used it find that double the quantity
of Mock can b" kept on the farm by
thi. now system of feeding; for winter dairying it is invaluable."   The
district of Westminster is so well
adapted to dairying that the farmers
should at onoe set about to preserve
their green crops suitable for ensilage in, this way,   Corn seems to be
the favorite crop for ensilage; it does
not require to be ripened for that purpose, 10 that B. 0. is a suitable climate to raise it in abundance for
that Use, The farmers of the Fraser
valley  can   well afford to let the
higher altitudes in this province and
the Northweat territories raise the
wheat, and devote their energies to
butter, cheese, stock, and fruit raising, for which the soil and climate
ire io well adapted.   Any system
like this, which will enable the farmer to keep double the number of
cattle, will alio enable him to manure doable the quantity of land, and
■ the poorest high lands in B, C, well
manured,  will  produce   the  best
fruits, corn,  and other things in
abundance.   In a future issue we
will give a hamber of extracts from
various practical authorities on the
•abject of building silos for curing
green forage for winter use, which
will enable any intelligent farmer to
try tha experiment on a small scale
at first   We are satisfied that ensilage   will in British Columbia  be
adopted a. a winter feed for cattle
in the near future; it has so many
advantage, in a climate like this; it
would be a laving of labor to begin
with, and alio a very great means of
enriching the farmer.

In a world and in an age where
there is so much that is palpably
hollow, so much that is mere sham,
in all departments 61 life ami socio-.
ty, not excepting the churches, it is
refreshing to come across such sterling utterances ai the following,
whioh bear on their very face the
seal royal of ipirit and of truth, and
go crashing through the maimed aud
stilted ranks of affectation, hypocrisy, and religious superstition with
all the scattering and detergent influences of a thunder storm on a
•ultry day in midsummer. Such
expressions, by whoever uttered, can
stand unchallenged on their own intrinsic meriti, without the added
weight of authority, however illustrious. They were delivered recently by Ven. Archdeacon Farrar, who,
in the course of a sermon preached
in Westminster Abbey, and in anticipation of the Lambeth Conference
then about to sit, spoke thus:
"Perish the hand which  would
circumscribe by one hair's breadth
the limits or the definition of the
Church of Christ; perish the arms
that would exoludo from that one
flock  of   tlio  Good  Shepherd the
■other sheep which are not of this
fold'; perish tho narrow superstition
that tho wind of God, which ' blow-
eth where it listeth, and thou hear-
est the sound thereof but canst not
whence it cometh or whither it
goeth,' oan only be oonveyed   by
mechanical transmissions.     I,  for
one at any rate, refuse to flatter the
priestly pride which would sectarian-
ize the Catholicity of the Church of
Christ.   The articles which I accepted at my ordination taught me
that the visible Church of Christ is
a  congregation  of   faithful   men
wherein the  pure   word of God is
preached and the sacraments duly
administered, and I, for one, even if
I wore to stand alone, would repudiate and protest against the un-
Catholic teaching which would pretend to do what it cannot do by unchurching those who love the Lord
Jesus Christ iu sincerity and truth.
When I speak of the church in general I do not mean this or that
communion, under this or that organization, but I mean, in their ton
thousand times ten thousand and
thousands of thousands, the whole
multitude  of   the  saints  of God.
What!   Are we not to claim as full
and honored members of the Church
of Christ in  every   possibly true
sense of that word,bccause they were
Moravians, those holy missionaries
who planted successfully

mainly or chiefly for outward organization, their views of Christ are not
such as I learn from Him who made
keeping the Commandments the essential of entering into the Kingdom
of heaven.   I say  with Whitetield:
Do they profess repentance towards
God and faith in our Lord Jesus
Christ?   If so; they'are my broth'
ren.'   True and unswervingly loyal
in my love for the Church of England, yet I would stand bare-headed
before any true saint of God, be he
Romanist or Independent, or Quaker or Presbyterian, so he be a saint
of God, desiring ten thousandfold
more that I may stand with him before the throne of Christ rather than
with those' who, though they may
have  had ■Lord, Lord,'   or   'the
Church, th. Church,'forever on their
lips, and have spent their livos in
the endless round of outward ordinances may yet, if their lives have
been unloving and unworthy, hear
those awful words,' Woe unto you,
scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites,'
and ' Depart from me, I never knew
you.'   For it is Christ, and Christ
alone, and not episcopal government,
or apostolical succession, or ancient
ritual, or the orthodoxy of curiously
articulated creeds; it is Christ, and
Christ  only,   and   the    innocence
which shines in the lives of them
that truly believe in him, whioh has
been the strength of Christianity."

Jttstoilnf  tho  Foelal Fromontory-An
; Inf onions Operation.
- A correspondent of the Allahabad Pioneer gives an account of the Enugairas, a
people who have long enjoyed a reputation us nosemakers. They lire chiefly in
Kangrn, a small hill canton in the Punjab. Although there are but fourteen
families remaining, out of which only
two individuals are practical nosemakers,
their reputation still remains.
People come to them from the remotest
parts ot the Punjab, and oven Afghanistan, actuated by the sole desire of haying
their facial promontory repaired or renewed. Tho Kangra nosemakers consider their art as one specially granted to
them by tho great Bajreshlvu Devi of the
place. They therefore perform tho operation in strlet secresy.   The writer says:
"It was only with great difficulty thatl
procured the following information respecting the modus operandi of this plastic operation for restoring tbe nose from
an old bald nnd habitual opium eater.
The old bald was a kind of n family doctor or professor of medicine to one of the
nosemakers, and In this capacity bad
more than once witnessed the operation
of nose. restoration, He therefore considered himself in possession of the
secret, if secret it is. His narrative ran
thus:
41 'After drugging their patient with
some narcotic, tbe Kangaims forthwith
proceed to paint tbe forehead with a medicated lotion as a preliminary step, On
lulling the composition of this lotion, tbe
only answer vouchsafed was a grave
shake of tbe bead,
" 'The next step is to cut a piece of
leather to tbo shape and size of tho re-,
quired nose. This being done, it ispluoed
ou the forehead and used to mark out the
Hues of incision. Then tbey beat the
forehead with un -old slipper until the
part j marked out becomes swollen and
prominent.
" 'Zinc tubes, with n plate between.
them to servo the purpose of septum nnsi,
are then lodged tn the nostrils. The next
proceeding Is to dissect a flap of the swollen flesh with a razor, leaving tbo lower
purt attached to the forehead. In doing
this they take a vein with tho flap, the
name and position of which i« a profound
secret, known only to himself and the
nosemakers. Tbe success cf tho operation depends entirely on tin, preservation
and careful dissection of this .-met vein.
!- 'The next step was to turn up tbe flap
With the secret vein a particular way over
the tubes.
" 'This being accomplished, the other
parts of tbe nose nre pared hod fastened
to it with silk ligature, and the whole
thing Is brongb t to an end by the application of a special ointment. For several
dnys, until tbe wound is healed, the patient must keep a recumbent position,
'"Ou union taking place tbe piece
which was left attached to tbo forehead
is severed, and the patient comes forth
with a new-born nose. I ought to have
mentioned that the removal of the zinc
tube is effected as soon as convenient,1,"

A   LUMINOUS .TREE. i
It Gives Light enough To Bead by.
A most remarkable tree or shrub said
to grow iu a small gulch near some
springs about twelve miles north of Tus-
carorast, is about six or seven feet in
height, with a trunk which, at its base,
la three times the size of a man's wrist.
It lias innumerable branches.and twigs,
nnd resembles somewhat the barberry
tree. Its foliage at certain seasons of tho
year Is so luminous that it can be plainly
distinguished in the darkest night for a
distance of more than a mile, while in its
Immediate vicinity it emits sufficient
light to enable a person to read the finest
print. Its foliage is extremely rauk, and
its loaves resemble somewhat, iu size,
shape aud color, thoso of the aromatic
baytree of California.
The luminous property is evidently par
rasitic, and consists of a sort of gummy
substance, which, upon being transferred
by rubbing to a person's hand, imparts to
it tho same apparently phosphorescent
light, while that on the leaf entirely disappears, -*--       ,

AN   ELECTR10   FISH  TRAP.
The Promise ol Deep-Sea Fishing without the Necessity of salt.   ■---"4
It has long been known thai; fish, liko
birds and Insects, are attracted by and
will swarm around any eoureo of illumi-
nation. Birds nre killed in thousands by
flying against the thick glass which protects lighthouse lanterns, and various
insects are caught with the help of a
light.
The difficulty of molntaihlpg a subaqueous light hu hitherto prevented the
application of the same principle to fishing. But now that we have at command
nn electric illuminont which is quite independent of oxygen, -And which will
therefore give light in a closed chamber,
the d i fflculty is at an end.
IV'th lamps arranged for tbe ptn-pose,
tho United States steamship Albatross
has been catching multitudes of the finny
tribes, tbe lamps being inclosed in wire
netting to obviate risks of breakage.
. Itls curious to note that if this method
of fishing is found to be advantageous
enough to become common, tt will haven
distinct hearing upon tbe disputes which
have arisen between the American and
Canadian fisher folk, for tbe former will
have nu longer any peed of troubling tho
latter f ; bait.—-Chambers's Journal.

The Indians of Alaska spend their winters in tho mountains. They are generally found in villages consisting of from
two to a dozen houses.
The winter house of these people consists of a horotspherically shaped- hut,
mado by bending willow saplings or cutting spruce to the tk-slt'ed shape. Tho-
framework is-covered with brush, and
over this dried moss end turf to the
depth of a foot-or more. - There is an ice
window on either side of tbe entrance. In
the roof is a hole just over the fireplace
for the smoke, . i
Inside the centre of tbe hut is used as a
fireplace, the fire being made the same as
in the open alrl At tho back of the hut
is a meat-stand, upon which several hundred pounds of doer-meat are kept, so
that a quantity will bo on band suf.lqient-
ly thawed for use. Upon entering a hut
when traveling, some of this partially
thawed meat is always offered to the newcomer,
The floor of the hut Is covered with
brush, upon which they sit during the
day, and spread, skins to sleep upon at
night,
Meat Is cooked but once a day. About
five p.m. a large fire is started and the
pots are put on. These are the ordinary
kettles of civilization, which tbey get In
trade, or, in their absence, pots mode of
native clay are used. The cooki ng is done
by the women, who taste tlie meat from
the moment it is put on, tho fire until
cooked.        . #5
The remainder of the fire is then thrown
ont through the. hole In the roof by tht
young men, and ns soon ns the hut Is clear
of smoke, the flap, that covers the chimney-hole is hauled over for the night.
The hunters usually vetuni about this
time of tbe day, and upon, entering the
hut take off most or their clothes.
After eating pounds of the deer meat,
alternating the cooked with raw meat,
and drinking qun:it it Irs of the soup, they
smoke a pipe and a; 1 hands go to sleep.
All the household are fond of stripping
and baking themselves before the fire,
particularly tbo old people, who go so
close as to almost blister themselves.
They say tbo heat mnhes them young and
drives away their pains.
HE BISHOP'S FALSE TEETH.
pedai-ed by au African Convert To Bo
tho Wonder of the World.
Many a good story has been told about
the consternation and dismay produced
by the sound of tho Scotch bagpipes on
uninitiated ears. They are said to have
put to flight foes for whom a bayonet
charge would have had no terrors. But
tho story told by Bishop Taylor luAs*
bury Church last evening about the effect
which his movable teeth produced among
the blacks in Africa seems to cast nil the
other yarns of this kind into tho shade.
Somehow hi., blnok brethren came to
know that (he good bishop hud falce
teeth, and one of them gently and tremulously broko the subject to him inconver-
sation one day.
Not wishing to ho suspected of witchcraft, tbe bishop told the children of the
sunny South that in big America when
became from, when iv man lost a leg, ho
could go and get a new one made. When
bis hair fell off ho could buy a fresh
supply, and so with teeth; when they
dropped ont or wore pulled tbey could be
replaced.
"Then," said the bishop, "I drew out
my. beautiful, white, clean porcelain set,
and when tbey saw that you ought to
havo seen those, darkies run and scream
aud gesticulate. One woman declared
sliO had seen the wonder of the world, and
was now content to die in pence, "—Buffalo Courier,
GREAT   FEATS  OF  MEMORY.
Sermons and Essays Repeated Verbatim
after Being Beard but Once.
Idiots have been known whose memory
for names and words was so retentive
that they could repeat a sermon verbatim
and indicate where tbe preacher, blew his
nose nnd coughed while delivering it.
- .Cardinal Mczznfantl, the linguist, who
Is said to havo known a hundred languages, declared that ho never forgot a word
.ho had mice learned.
m Toafriend who congratulated I-cyden
on bis remarkable memory he replied that
be often found it a source of great inconvenience. On the friend expressing surprise ho exclaimed that he had often
wished to recollect a particular expression
In something ho had read, but could..not.
do ic until he had repeated the whole passage from the beginning to the expression
he desired to recall.   ,
AuKngllsh clergyman mentions a man
who' could remember the day of the burial
of every person who had died in tho parish
during thirty-live years, and could also
repent tha name nud age of each deceased
person, aud the names of mourners at bin
funeral. , But so weak was he intellectually that ho could not he trusted to feed
himself,
Dr. Moffat, the distinguished African
missionary aud father-in-law of Dr. Liv*
Ingstoue, once preached a long sermon to
a crowd of negroes. Shortly after hu had

Cruel Injustice.
A little girl who made too much noise
in the early morning in her sick mother's
room was put out into tlie hall, and soou
after a miserable Old rag doll, of which
she was very fond, was tossed out to her.
Tbls was the "straw" that did it.

The passage of a bylaw granting
(160,000 to an American railway,
which ii to crosi the British Columbia
line to New* Westminster, has been
the occasion of much jubilation lu the
city mentioned. The circumstance
ii instructive to restrictionists on both
•ides of the boundary. To tho Canadian restrictioniats it teaches the lesson
that, talk as they will about treason
and disloyalty, our people aro bound
to have business relations with their
neighbours. To the American lcslric-
tioniita it shows that the railway policy
of the people, as distinguished from
the politicians, of Canada, is not exclusive.— Toronto Mail.

The Delicious Oolachan.
A sample box of a delicious little
liah which abounds in the waters of
British Columbia, has boon received
by Joseph Carman, commission merchant, of Winnipeg, The fish ia known
ai the oolachan, and is a lhado smaller
in size than the red herring. The fish
are cured by smoking, in tho same
manner ii herrings, but havo a better
flavor than the latter. The price at
which they are held, however, will
preclude their Bale in this market,
herrings being worth about 30 cents
per box, whilst the oolachans .would
he worth at least 81 per box, if put up
in the same way. The oolachan ia a
favorite fiah in British Columbia, and
either fresh, smoked, or salted, forms
a real delicacy,—WinnipegGomniercial.

A Compliment lo Westminster.
The eity of New Westminster haa
passed by a large majority a bylaw
granting to the Southern Railway,
which ii to connect tha city with the
boundary, n bonus of $150,000 in return for being made the northern terminus of tho road. The agreement
provides that security be given for the
completion of the rend within four
yean, that the workshops be built in
New Wostmnister ut a cost of $75,-
000, that pending the building of a
bridge across the Fraser River, the
service will be performed by steam
ferry to convey freight care and pasBengers over, and finally that the road
shall not be extended farther north, so
that New Westminster shall get all
the advantages of the connection.
This last proviso is a proof that the
city had its eyea wide open when the
contract wm drawn up, and if all these
clauses oati he enforced New Weatmin-
iter may conaider itself extremely fortunate,—Toronto Empire.

It WU3 ten minutei put eleven o'clock
before tho Vancouver-Westminster
match began thia morning. The sun
whb warm and bentdown pretty strongly on the players, but a fine cool breeno
helped to temper the heat and made
a great difference as it grew stronger
towardi noon. In the morning the
attendance of spectators was confined
to about a dozen admirers of the team!
but later in the day the number increased largely and at one time a great
many ladies were on the ground. The
visitors took to the stumps lint, Rand
and Freeman batting. A few run,
were made at the itart by Freeman
but Rand went out, bowled by Ooul-
thurd, without scoring. Scholliekl
took his place. Freeman watched for
an opening and presently got one aud
lifted the ball high into the air. Hamber saw it coming and by a short run
backwards made a neat catch, retiring
Freeman. The next ball caught Sohol-
field's bat and glanced off at an angle
behind the wicket and was prettily
Btopped by Chappel. Nelson and
Clinton, the veteran playora of the
club, were now guarding tho wickels,
but Nelson was retired by Coulthard',
bowling, without a run. Mile, took
Chappel's post aa bowler and waa io
fortunate aa to eend Clinton home by
a pretty daisy cuttor. Elwood waa
pationtly waiting for Coulthard to
change hii bowling and give a ball he
could drive, but though he waited
long and batted freely the' chance
never came and he was finally bowled
by one of Coulthard s peculiar "shots."
Beck went to bat and Coulthard bowled light; Beck caught the ball fairly
but did not drive hard enough and the
ball fell into Hainber's ready hands.
Loutlit waa caught out by Gilford ind
Larville fell a victim to another of
Miles' daisy cutters. McDougall
after a very short itand was bowled
by|Coulthard and Wilkinson carried out
his bat. Scoro, 40 runs. Coulthard'i
bowling was a mystery to the visitor!
and none of thorn could manage
to bat il, which can easily be believed
when tho bowling shows 8 wickets for
13 runs. The fielding was particularly
good.
Without loss of time Wilson and
Graeme went to bat for Westminster
and tho former getting a good opening
lifted tho ball and planted it on the
roof of a BummerhouBe in a neighboring garden, scoring 4 runs. Greame
after scoring 3 was bowled by Loutlit.
Gilford took his placo but was bowled
by Loutlit without breaking the egg.
Wilsnu after scoring a double and a
■ingle wai "run out," It being now
1 o'clock the game was adjourned fur
lunch.
Coulthard mado n good stand and
drove tho balls in all directions until
17 wu scored when Loutlit'i bowling
brought hiin to grief. Lewis and
Armstrong went out in rapid succession
without scoring, but Woods and Raymond came to the rescue and mado a
stand in which they scored 0 and 5
respectively. Miles mado the next
stand and had counted 14 runs when
caught out by MoDougall. Cbappell
did not count and Hamber carried out
his bat.   Score, 56.

The following interesting sketch *df
Rio de Janerio was Boot to Mt. John
Kirklnnd, of Hazel Grovo, Delta, by
Mrs. Capt. Macdonold (nee Maudo
Kirk land), who iB making a tour uf the
world with htsi* husband in tho barque
MancUlay. It will bo rome-iibercd that
Beveral montliB ago The Columbian
published an entertaining description
oE Rangoon, Burninh, by the same
writer;
On the morning of March 4th we
came in sight of land, distant about 12
miles northward- whioh, by its con-
picous bearings, marked our approach
to Rio do .Irmeiro Harbor. The morning being very clear, nt thia distance
we were in a good situation for enjoying a general view of its vicinity. All
the bold and varied outlines of the
Organ Mountain (so-called because
thoy havo a number of poaka resembling the pipes of an organ) nre eoen to
belter udvaiituge than when near the
shore. Tho immediate entrance of
thu harbor, which is about w mile wide,
is oaaily distinguished hy a remarkable
mountain, called the ''Sugar-Loaf,"
readily known by its form. My attention was so taken with the view before
me that it seemed only a Bhort space
of time before we were crossing the
bar and entering tho harbor. There
are fortifications on the heights inside,
whioh all vessels are obliged to salute
in passing. Proceeding to the first
anchorage ground, wo wore visited by
the doctor of the port and the customs
officials, from whom we received "Pratique," when we were permitted to go
higher up the harbor to our final placo
of anchorage.
The Bay of Rio .lanerio is very spacious and is considered one of the most
magnificent in the world. I cannot
pretend by my description to do any
justice to the beauties of the scenery
of this little inland sea, whoso surface
is diversified by many islands, covered
with richest verdure. It is surrounded
by high mountains and its shores are
dotted with pretty villages, plantations, aud handsome residences, the
whole hearing tho most agreeable
aspect. No persons from ashore are
allowed on board any vessels in the
harbor without a special permit from
the customs authorities—which is difficult to obtain—and uo boat is allowed
to and fro tho shore after gun-fire at 9
p.m For any infringement of these
rules the fines are rigidly enforced.
Guard-boats are constantly plying
about night and day to prevent any
smuggling being carried on.
The city of Rio ,1 amino is situated
on the custom side of tho bay, from
which it presents a fine appearance,
being built iu tho form of a parallelogram. The streets are wide and well
laid out, except in tho older parts of
the town, where they aro mostly narrow and dirty, with a water courso
down the centre, whioh receives tlio
filth from the houses. All tho principal streets are provided with tram-
cars. Theso cars, called ''bonds," aro
drawn by one, two, and sometimes
three mules and they carry ono along
very smoothly and speedily. They are
a splended institution, being such a
cool and pleasant mode of conveyance.
The population of Rio is about 400,-
000 and the language generally spoken
is Portuguese. There ia a good number of English and American residents,
most of whom are engaged iu business,
some possessing grout wealth. Tho
many fine public buildings, Ruch ns the
Old Palace, containing the crown
jewels, tho Exchange, two laive and
handsoino theatres, the Custom and
Government offices, etc., add greatly to
tho appearance of the city from a .distance, Tho churches nuulber between
40 and 50, but uono of them are very
grand edifices though thoy show conspicuous from the bay. Two or three
pretty Protestant churches were pointed out to me. The street on which
all the fashionable shops are situated
is called Rua du Onvidov and on it no
cars nor carriages aro allowed. In
walking this street all visitors feel
bound to purchase somg feather flowers, whioh are a speciality of thii oity.
They aro made with groat perfection
from the natural undyod plumage of
Brazilian birds. Some of the fans,
bouquets, and Bprays sell as high as
one hundred milreis,—equal to fifty
dollars in Canadian money, but ones
a Httte less hiudsnrno may bo purchased at very reasnimblo prices.
Numbers of young girls aro employed
in tho mumifucture of thii feathered
work. 1 felt Sony when watching
them, for it stunned such tedious employment. I was told tlmt in the convents the art is very skilfully tauuht.
Besides the flowers I saw hummingbirds' heads of many hues, and shiny
green booties made into jewellery of
moat unique designs. Hospital accommodation iB very good, which is an important point where yellow-fever and
small-pox arc so common. In these
hospituls patients get good nursing
from the Sisters of Charity. Before
we left, -.faltuw-fcviir wot becoming
very prevalent, ft usually breaks nut
before the hot season is over, though
some years it is much wotso than
others. There is an institution where
femule orphans, born of white married
parents ait educated and portioned off
iu marriage, by the Empress of Brazil.
Ou Ihe streets I saw a great many large,
f»t negrosttea, black ns jet, dressed in
long white garments and white tur*
band. Home go about carrying* boskets
of fruit and vegetables on their heads,
wliilo othera preside ut stalls, selling
oranges, btoianas or lemonade.
Kin has a very extensive trade, ex*
fiorting more coffee than any other port
n tbe world; sugar, rum, and cabinet
woods are also exported, besides the more
precious articles, as diamonds, amethysts,
topaxos and chrynoberyls.
1 often enjoyed a drive to llota I'ogo
Bay or Languesais, two of the most
fashionable suburbs, iu which are situ-
attid all tho elegant residences of the
nlurchHiits, Most of these houses nre
built of granite and are of great architectural beauty. They look so cool, surrounded by beautiful green trees round
whose trunks are twining oreepors with
bright blosBoms, such as the passionflower and the stcphanotis; in fact all
those clinging plants that are met with
nowhere in such luxuriance as in tho
tropics. Having no need of. tiro, except
for cooking purposes, the houses have no
chimneys, which deficiency gives a bare
appearance in the eyes of ono coming
from a cold climato. Granite of tho best
quality is easily obtained from the quarries in the mountains round the bay. I
was much gratified in visiting the botanical gardens where I went several times.
They arc situated about seven miles from
the city and It is a delightful drive out to
them. They aro very extensive and filled
with every description of tropical plants.
But the neatest feature is the grand
avenue ©F palms; no words of mine can
convey any idea of these wonderfnl trees
to thoae who have not seen them; they
rise perfectly straight to the height of
about 300 fuet without a break in their
polished bark, aud are topped with large
tuftfl of feathery, drooping green leavca.
During our stay time was afforded us
to make several excursions, of whioh one
was to the summit of the Corcovado, a
peak 2,300 feet in height, overlooking the
bay. The ascent, which took two hours
time, was made by a railroad, like a corkscrew, winding round and round the
mountain to the top. The engines are
of 12 tons weight, with cogged wheels
underneath, working in tho middle of
the track. Attached to tho engine it a
small railway carriage in which we rode
and on some parts of the road the declivity was so great that we were obliged
to hold on to our seat with our hnnds to
escape being suddenly thrown against
the persons Bitting on the opposite seat.
Many difficulties had to be encountered
and conquered before this daring road
could bo opened to the public. In roine
places up the mountain side, gigantic
trots, hung with vines, form n dense forest. They seem striving, as it were, to
raise themselves to the light. Bright
colors intermingle with this luxuriant
vegetation—rod, yellow and blue, all the
colors of the rainbow 1 Many-hued butterflies flit about, fairly revelling in this
mixture of sun, light and moisture. And
the many varieties of orchids! These
parasital plants growing on the trunks of
the treoB, their flowers of dazzling hue
make a beautiful effect, contrasted with
the creepers and mosses 1'iat are hanging
from and embracing the t tioesj 'On reaching the summit we, were well rewarded
for our journey. A pavilion is placed
there, nnd from it we viewed the magnificent spectacle underneath and before us.
Words are inadequate to describe the
Bcene. Every variety of scenery is seen;
the Atlantic Ocoan on one side; the bay,
dotted with many vcsmoIb, on the other,
with the "Sugar-Loaf" so distinctly
marking its entrance; the city spread out
as in a plan; the botanical garden with
its avenue of imperial palms; the whole
forming a vast and incomparable panorama, which cannot be excelled iu any
pavtjof the world. No one having viewed
it once can ever forget it, for the impression it leaves will be eternal and it will
awaken feelings of gratitude towards a
henificent creator, who lias spread out
such wonders of nature for our content*
Station. There is a nice hotel a short
•stance down the mountain, where we
stopped for a few hours. Wo had dinner
and took a walk along tho aqueduct,
which conveys water to the city. The
aqueduct, which was built iu 1740 by
the Jesuits, is a grand piocc of work,
Tho water from it supplies only a portion of the city, but it is considered the
purest to be bad. We returned to the
city before dark, moro than delighted
with our trip. Before concluding, to all
lovers of romantic scenery I would advise a visit to Rio de Janeiro and its
neighborhood, for they can be certain of
seeing one of the most beautiful portions
of the earth.
