ment. Mr. Find quitted the" Emperor's
camp at, Ztgye, on ihe south-western
edge of ImkeTsana, on the 'JOth April
last, at which place Mrs. Flad and her
three children, Consul Cameron and the
remaining captives, together with Mr.
Hu-s-'iii and his suit, are detaiiied until
Mr. Find's return :—
In the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Ghost, one God,
the King of king*, Theodoros, may Hits

" Give me a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimedes, " and I will move the
world." *' Give me pure and unadulterated
drugs," says Medicus, of the olden time,
"and 1 will cure disease."
In one sense, both of these learned pundits
were thfeveriest charlatans. They knew there
was no place to rest tbeir lever on, either to
move the world or cure disease. Mechanism
was in a backward state, and the medical profession was but nnothet name for sorcery,
and all the adjuncts of mngic filters Hnd
charms o'the " evil eye," ke.
Bul these latter days have borne unto us
something more than even superstition and
ils crew ever dreamt of in tbeir maddest philosophy. Jn these days of practical science,
what wns theory of yesterday ir fact to-dnv,
and all the old time notions become as bubbles
in thc sun, and burst and break with every
breath we druw.
Let Archimedes shoulder his lever and we
will find a resting place for it to move the
world. Let mine ancient Medicus pant and
toil no more for the drugs he so sorely needs,
tor we have them at our hand, ever ready to
serve them nt his berk.

FRIHAY    EVENING,   .SEPT.   U, 188a.
'Ibe Coul  qucitluu
A correspondent in anoiher  part of today's paper  I ikes  exception  to somen-
maiks make by us recently ou   the waste
unending non-caking coal,   asserting thnt
' slack " can be aud is used with as much
profit, aa coal.    We do   Dot doubt the
gentleman's experience   in   the mines  of
South Staffordshire, to which we purlieu
Urlj alluded, but uo later tban the present year  this very   question came  up in
tbe Hoose of Commons for discussion, and
lu this  body  as  well us   in   the vurious
periJSiekU of  England, the general conclusion was that an enormous loss in non-
raking  coal   was  entailed every   jenr in
Knglaud because  i's slack could   only be
nsed   in   particular   cases   anil   by   an
additional  outlay.    Ou   this  subject   wc
have the following remarks from an etui
nent  scientific   writer    in   the   London
Quarterly,    "it the  coal will not cake,
then the whole at least of the fine slack
may be utterly wasted.   It may, it is true,
be manufactured into coke,  ufter having
been  ultimately mixed 6ilher with pitch,
wheiher from  wood  or coal, or wiih a
proportion  of enking  coal ; but an additional process like  tbi)   increases  tbe
cost of munufactnre, aud, except iu special
cases, cannot be conducted with profit to
long as  coal  slack  is  largely obtained,
which needs no such preliminary treatment.
•Or,   it   may   be consumed   in  furnaces
specially constructed for tbe purpose ; but
manufacturers will not generally be induced
to accept ii.tiwatiem of this  kind  whilo
they can comrtmid an adequate supply ol
coal  at  remunerative  prices, iu  a form
adapted to  furnaces In actual operation.
It is certain ihat many millions of tons
of coal alack are annually wasted, being
for tba mosl part left in tbe pits.   It is a
grievous national loss, and the lim* may
come when o#ing to tbe scarcity of coal,
and ils consequent advance ln price, this
slack,  now regarded as worthless, will be
sought out and applied with advantage.''
Such are the ideas entertained on   the
question by scientific men io England, and
we see  somewhat similar views put forward by practical colliers io letters to the
London Timet.   In one letter the writer
says:—"In order to utilize the slack, the
furnaces of steam-engines  and  maun'fac-
tories should be constructed so as to burn
in steam-engines of all kinds 'through-and
through' coal, and in  smelting furnaces,
small.    If furnaces  can   be  constructed
that  will smelt copper with small coal,
wbich prodjecs such iutense heat, why
not   construct   the  same   class of   fire,
places   for  steam   engines ?    I have no
hesitation iu asserting that fully one-half
the coal  comes down  through   the fire
bars of the steamers without having been
burut and done itjj duty"—and so on. We
do not wish lo  depreciate  the character
of our own coal,  because  so Tar it has
been found lo be non-caking ; we merely
desire to place all the fads in connection
with   coal   before   our   readers.    It   is
enough for ns to kuow that whatever may
be  the   defects   in   the   coal   produced
on the Island, they are small  when compared to the defects of other coal raised
along the «oost.   The Nanaimo coal is
without dispute better than any bitumen-
ous  coal on the Pacific ; but it is possible
to  find  much  bettor aud  assert even   a
wider pre-eminence.    If  our correspondent  has discovered  or  knows   of   the
existence pf a caking coal on the Island
he   places   us   in   a position still higher
than   we   have  hitherto occupied.     It
is,   however,   with this natural   resource
as with others.   There is  no hope of its
deve'cipment so  long as  we are  met by
duties in  onr only n.arkel.    Let bnt our
relations   with   the   United   States   be
changed so that the products of the Island
can enter L'alifornian ports duty free, and
as we have repeatedly observed, no country
on the   Pacifio  will  be more prosperous
than   Vancouver   Island.     Without this
the time,  energy, and  money of the in-
hai itauts nre merely thrown awny.

Dyspepsia — Inuiohstion,
From Dr. Ilettty J. Knox, of St. EMfth
" The Pjll« you w«r» kind enuuith t»> send me hare been
all HM-d In in v practice, and hare satisfied me tbat they are
truly at) extraordinary medicine. So peculiarly are th.-y
adapted to the diieamw or the human system, that they seem
to work upon ili-m ttlone. I bave cured noma easel otdi/t'*
peptia and ttubyrAin with tbem, which had reaiatod tha
other remedies wx commonly uu. Indeed I have expert-
oieiit.tllv Mi nd them to be effectual in almost all the com-
plaiuta for which you recommend them."
Dysentery — Diarrhoea — Relax.
From Dr. J. 0. Oretn, of Chicago.
"Tour Prn-s hare had a lone trial ln my practice, and I
bold them In eateem tut one uf the best aperients I hare erar
found. Their Hlt'THtlve effect upon tlm llrer makes them
an exoelleut remedy, wben ifiven In email flofles, for tdliout
dyuntery «ud diarrhau. Their augar-coatlng makes them
rerr acceptable aud convenient for tbe use of women aud
children."
Internal Obsthi'ctiom—Worms—Suppression.
" I And one or two larfrs Aotem of your Pills, taken at tha
proper time, are excellent promotives of ths natural secretion wheu wholly or partluhy suppressed, and also very ef-
ttn tuul to cleauM the stomiicb and expel worms. They are
so much the best physic we bare that I recommend do other
to my patients."
Constipation — Costiveness.
From Dr. J. I*. Vau-jhn, Montreal, Canada.
" Too much cannot be said of your Pills fur the cure of
eoHivenest. It others uf our fraternity hare found thera
as efficacious m I bave, th'.y sliould Join me In proclaiming
it for the LwneAt of tbe multitudes who suffer from tliat
complaint, which, nil hough bad eaough In itself, Is the pro-
guuitor of others that are worse. I believe coitivenat to
•riftlnatu in the liver, but your Pills affect that organ and
cure the disease."
Impurities op the Blood — Scropula — Erysipelas — Salt Rheum — Tetter — Tumors
— Rheumatism — Gout — Neuralgia.
From jDr. Stokiel Halt, Vhiltidelphia,
"You were liuht. Doctor. In saying that your Pills purify
Hit btond. They do that I hare used them of late yean in
my practice, and agree with your statement* of their efficacy.
They stimulate the excretories, and carry off the Impurities
that stagnate in the blood, engendering disease. They
stimulate the organs of digestion, and infuse vitality and
vigor Into the system.
h Buch remedies as you prepare are a national benefit, and
you deserve great credit for them."

"Dr*R Da. Arts: I cannot answer you what complaints

we have, I of course value tbem highly."
t'tf- Most of tbe Pills in market contain Herenry, which,
although a valuable remed/ ia skilful bande, is dangerous
In a public pill, from tbe dreadful consequences tbat fre-
quintly follow Its incautious use. Tbese contain uo mercury or mineral subetaucu whatever.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
Has long been manufactured by a practical chemist, and
every ounce of It under his owu eye, with invariable occu-
racy and care. It is sealed and protected by law from coud-
teifeits, and egnsequently can be relied on as genuine,
without adulteration. It supplies the surest remedy tbe
world lias ever knowu ft the core of all pulmonary complaints; for Cocohs, C"ii'i, HoAiihtM.88, Asthma, Crouf,
WllOOPIKO I'm 'ill. RllONCUlTIS, lNcil'JKNT Co.isl'mptios, and
for the relief of Conaumplive patients in advanced stages of
the disease. As time makes these facts wider and better
known, this medicine has gradunlly become the beat reli-,
slice of the afflicted, from the log cabin uf tbe American
peenant to the palaces of Euro|>uan kings. Throughout
thin entire country, in every state and city, and Indeed al-
moat erery hamlet it contains, Ouerrt Perron ai. Is known
as the best of all remedies for diseases of the throat end

Tin PuusuiAN Nikdli Oct.—The first
terror inspired by the needle gun is becoming
more subdued. A correspondent of the
London Timet, writing from Vienna, says :
"According lo the surgeons, tbe wounds
inflicted by them arc, in general, slignt. In
fact, the medical men employed in the Vienna
hospital! say that the great majority of their
patients will loon |be fit tor active service
again, ' as most of the woundi are mere flesh
woundi.' It cannot be doubted Ihat the
statement is correct, for the streets of the
city and of tbe village! in tbe environs are
now full of soldiers who'have one of their
arms in a sling. An Italian veteran, who has
had tbree wounds, told me that he would
ratber bave half a dozen Pro si:,n ' pellets' in
hii body than nne French conical' bullet."
The Vienna Medical Oazctte informs the pub ie
that of thc 12,000 wounded men brought to
Vienna, not five per cent are fo severely, hurt
as to be in danger of losing tti6ir live.-,.''

RiPAias to Govbrsiiiint House — Owing

A respectably dressed man, name unknown, jumped off Pueific street wharf
to-dny. A bystundor look a skiff und
sculled to the drowning man, reaching
hi in just as he was sinking beneath the
waters. He not only made no effort to
help himself, but resisted the friendly aid
that was offered him, and it was uot until
a second boat had put off to his assistance, ond after a fcrious attempt to bile
his rescuers that he was dragged into the
skiff. As the man was apparently sober
it is supposed that insanity wus the cause
of this rash act.

l\on-Cnklng Coal.
BotTOI or tub Brum TittiroitAPH,—Sm :
—In tli''article upon ci.al in your s%ue of
Htalday last I find a tutement which need!
correction : it rend-, thus : " The next delcrtp-
li'.n of coal ll thnt tuaad lo South Suffurj-
ihire and the Mid and Counties of England
and cot aud. This Coal contain! a large proportion ot oxygen, but contain* more carhou
that lignite, ll is, however, unprofitable
fuel, as the slack, which mint of necessity
abound in the production of all coil is w.tcled.
The to:il do--8 not cake, in oilier words, the
-nuil pieces of coal do not combine together
and generate heat—if coal will cake, all tlie
slack may be utilized by converting it into
eoke 1 if it doe. not an immense quantity of
cohI is wasted, and as a pound of -!.,< I. is
capable of producing as much lo-at us a pound
of the same coul in lumps, it naturally follow!
that a seam of this deseriptio.1 of coul requires
many facilities aud advan ages over the caking
cod to make it pay." Now sir. this ttule-
inent so far us Souih St»tToi'dil ire and Mid-
hind Boon ies of Erglaud is concerned
is incorrect ; the sleek being entirely used,
and no pirt of the coal being WHsted—iu
fact, the slack is now su eagerly sought after
tlmt there is more difficulty In obtaining it
than the targe coal. 1 am not quite sure that
there is so great nu advantage in the "cokey"
coal as you would wish your readers to believe . whut is the use to which it cun be applied that the slack of .South Stall'ii dshire
OVIllOt be applied als ', and with equal ad-
vantage. 1 know that the slack is now being
convened imo coke for smelting inn ore. It
is also used for heating und puddling furnaces, for glass liou-es, burning bricks, lime
land, and has always been the only article in
use in the district tor geuetating steam for
■team engines, Ac, ic.; and no part of it is
wast d mure than is wasted in the working
of the '• cakey" coal. Where then is the advantages of the latter over the forini i .' The
importance of developing onr coal fields you
do not, however, over estimate. Some ol" our
coals n:ay no* he equal to the English or
Pennsylvania coals but ask our ironfuunders
here if they would not as soon work with our
Queen Charlotte Isluud anthrucile as tbey
woald with any other they can obtain here;
then although our bituminous coal may not
be tlie best in the world, it is unquestionably
the best of the kind found ou the 1'acilic costs
and although our Nanaimo coal is not
" cakey," yet I know that such a :nal does
exist here, having shown specimens of it to a
g.ntlemun in this city ; but even the "slack"
of the Nanaimo coals may he utilized; but we
may not have smelling, heating or puddling
furnaces, but there are still many other ways
in which it may bc used with equal advantage, and the same may be said with regard
to the many other seams of coal known to exist upon the Island none of which, as far as
our knowledge of them extands at present,
are inferior iu quality to -the Nauaiuio coal,
and there is no doubt but those patties who
hnve sufficient capital and enetgy to prosecute
the working of our undeveloped coal mines,
will in a lew years be considered as tho most
" lucky" men of ihe day.
