A 1-iniici- nud a Kiss.
"I've brought your dinner, f.ithor,"
The blacksmith's dniifrhter snid,
As sh" took from her arm the kettle,
And lifted its shining lid.
"Tliern's not any pio or pudding)
So I will give you this:
Aud upon his toil-worn furchead
She left a loving kiss.
Tbe smith took ofl' his apron,
And dinod in a happy mood,
Wondering much at the savor
Hid iu his hiimbln food.
While ull about were visions
Full of prophetic bliss;
But he never thought of mugio
In his little daughter's kiss.
While she, with her kettle swinging,
Merrily skipped away,
Stopping at sight of a squirrel,
Or catching some wild bird's lay.
Oil, I thought, how many a shadow
Of life and fate we would miss,
If always our frugal dinners
Were seasoned with a kits.

A ijiOyt extraordinary article
appears in the Colouist of Sunday, which throws Sinbad's valley of diamonds in the shade.
It js a narrative given by Lieut.
Glavc, wbo has just returned to
Victoria Irom a six months'
journey jn Alaska, to a Colonist
reporter ou the arrival nf ihe str
Mexico list Saturday nighl.
Lieut. Gluve, wiih only oue companion, an old hunter und trapper
named DultOu, scl out, last, April
for thai region of myth and mystery never before entered by-
white men. They took only a
few pounds of baggage, a sextant,,
compass uiid j, large Koduc camera, But to give the travellers'
own words:���
"We left the Chilcat River
half way up, with four pack
horses, I hud boen warned not
to try lhe experiment of taking
horses, and was advised lo lake
Indian curriers instead, bul i hud
an idea thai horses could get
through, and, on my return, we
brougbi the same animals bad.',
in better condition than whon we
went in. This is lhc Iirst limo it
has ever been done.
"Alier leaving the Chilcal
River, wo struck across lo tbo
westward and kept ou a siri-'bl
course lor five dajBOVor a beautiful flat country, uuiil  wo were
brought io a abort stop by a
lar-'C luku ol frcsb water,   It is
ouo ol the most bouuulul spots I
evor saw.   On three sidto it is
burrouudod by rolling prairie, and
ou lhc fnurlh there Ifl- u bucking
of bcuutilul mountains lhat riso
Bhcer  up from tho water, and
loriiis   a   Hiii iiinn    baickcioiind.
This luko must be -10 miles long
by 11 wide,    Wo camped horo
for a few   days, Inking   photographs and observations ol lbe
surrounding couutry, and   then
niovod ou westward, encountering no hardship whatever, but, on
the   contrary,   finding   pleasant
travelling   lor over  12(1 milos,
whon wo  reached  a   mountain
range lhat 1 had novor scon on a
map, or   heard of before.     Its
formation wus peculiar, reminding
one of tho Spanish Cordilleras,
every peak terminating in a tall,
uecdlc-liko   craig.     Bul   what
seemed io mo uncommon waa tho
color of somo of (ho mountains
composing tho range,    The day
we gol in lull view of tboni the
sun was just going down, and its
last rays slinnc on thoir lips with
a reflection, us if the hills were
simply mirrors. For somo time
wc stood and watched ibo burnished bill tops, and tb-n ul sundown camped iu the valley. Next
morning we started up one of the
least steep of tho hills and bad
j-ono about throe miles when Dal*
Ion, my companion, ran towards
a cave and seemed sruck with
aiiiazcmcnt. I went tiller him,
and ho showod mo hanging all
over the nnvo, like a motallio
screen, ohccls ol solid copper thut
we could bond iulo any shape
with our hands, Wo bad como
aoross mountains covered with
pure copper, I never saw anything liko it in my lifo. I wont
to several places, and laying my
hand on a ledgo toro off great,
sheets of tho metal with the
utmost of ease. We descended
again by a different route, and
found at lho base of the bill a
party of Indians, ono of whom, to
our astonishment, wc found ahlo
to talk English well, ilo m
formed us that ho bad lived u
long timo in June.au, and thai ive
wore then in tho coppor mountains, tho famous legendary hills
ihal white men hud up to that
time imagined lived only in myth.
We stayed another two days
taking copious notes, and then
journeyed on, sinking the true
headwaters of lho Alsttk river ou

Miners Revolt Against Convict Labor in Tennessee.
Lasl week the miners of East
Tennessee released ull the convicts and burned die stoekacl.es,
ay lho Governor had ordered tho
convicts to return to work in the

miners have been protesting
against Ibis bringing ol convict
labor in oorapetilipa with free

A telegram to the Now York
Herald special from Nashville,
Tennessee, says: Tho situation
of affairs in Teuuessee arc becoming alarming. It has but oue
equal iu the history of America,
aud tbat was when Carolina attempted lo Secede irom liio Uuited States. Communication is
being held bolwccn tho East
Tennessee miners and the minors
of Kentucky, Alabama and Virginia. Tbo hardy mountaineers
who rclcasod tho convicts huvo
Bsvoru that lho Governor will not
robuild tbo stockades, and that if
he sends the convicts back to tho
Bricovillo and Coal Crock mines,
lliey will bo butchered in cold
blood.
Sheriff Rutherford, of Anderson couuly, who war; notified by
Governor Buchanan yesterday
that if he could not sustain order and protect the people thai
his resignation would Lu rcqucs

doiilhs-bcads with grinning skulls

Tho law is now openly defied,
There cau bo nothing bul bloodshed if tbe Governor really intends to robuild tho stockades.

On Tuesday last Limerick city
was tne scene uf a fieroe conflict,
in which 40 soldiers and a mob of
people were engaged. Four sol-,
dices were seriously slabbed with
knives, and six civilians wero
arrested.
The police appoor to bo noting
on upscial information to the
ctloct that the Clan-na-Gaol in
America is again active, anl the
members of that society have pre
pared for a resumption of the
pbysiual loroe policy, and they

arrivals
lhc result of the election to
fill tbe vacancy in tho House of
Commons fr..m the city ot Cork,
created by iho death of Charles
Stewart Parnell, has been announced as follows:���Martin Flu-,
viu (MrCarthyite), 3,009 ; John
li. Redmond (Pai-nellite), 2,157;
Csiptnin Sursfiold (CoDsorvutivej,

The antiParnollites were celebrating their victory at Cork by
a tOioli.li-.ot procession and fireworks ul Queonsiown, when somo
soldiers ot lho Berkshire R.gi-
menl, stationed in th6 vicinity,
interfered with the procession.
They wero set upon by a lurco
crowd and badly bouten before
the police could reach the scene
of the affray.
I-t is acknowledged by leading
Homo Rulers lhat the ''Hillside'1

powerful following in Ireland,
It is uudeislood, however, that

Cliiu-ua Gael, and uobody would
be surprised to hear ol sonic signal and memorable not of violence
by the emissaries of thai section.
At ti Conservative meeting at
Oswakltwistle, Eng,,on Saturday.
Homo Secretary Matthews snid
that tbe recent occurrences at
Cork stamped Heme Uulo uo an
impossibility, and that no sensible
Englishman oould possibly como
to any other conclusion. Tho
Heine Secretary, probably for ibo
reason that he is a Catholic himself, cai'elu'ly avoided any ullu-
sion lo ihe reli-jious phase of the
Irish struggle, but argued that
tho acta of violence porpolrntod
wero an a'.l-sullieieiii argument
against a Dublin Parliament.
The police ol England, Scotland
and li'i laud are on the lookout

British authorities to look aftci

This is n matter for L.i.8 and inture

in some of the valleys for agriculture
without tbe aid of irrigation. This

is usually well distributed over the

As will be seen in onr advertising

Tbe Columbia has again fall-n
several feet. The loweut record
hiving been reached, The almost
sudden rise of the water two weeks
agO was noly temporary, and now
steam boating will have to take a
back seat.
There was to have beon a social and

A west bound freight train, in
charge of Conductor MeKeuzie ami
Engineer -cMauns, ran into a rock
slide at N��. I tunnel, a few tnilns
west of Agn^si?, on Friday night.
The engine and Hve cars left th.-
track, a portion of the wreck falling
into the Fraser. Engineer McManus
found himself and Brakesman Grant
Seating down the ri\ er on the top of
the engine cab, whi.h had been
knocked clean off. Tbe ourrent was
very swiff, running at thu rate of $ix
or eight miles an hour. Grant must
have been hurt by bis fall, for he
held on to the cab only about ten
minutes, when he let go, but whether
from Ruiki.css or to grasp some
other floating object is not known.
The night was so dark tbat his companion could hardly see him, though
he was less than sis feet away. Tbe
current carried McManus down the
stream for a considerable distance,
then he met the back tide and was
whirled round in an eddy and swept
out to mid stream. The water was
very cold, and be was so chilled as
to be unable to do anything to save
himself. IDs cries lor help were nt
last answered from the shoro. Two
ianchors, John aud Alex Jess, put
"ut to his assistance in au old waterlogged Siwash ennoe, one of thnni

A Great California Nugget.
In the early times  in California claims were small and road
agents   numerous,   and   men. if
they found a nugget ct extraordinary   sine,   were  afraid  their
ground might be jumped or themselves .idihod, and perh.-ps murdered, ifoing la-low, and so they
kepi   lhe   largest   sold   finds   a
secret until they could get out of
tho mountains and lhc State, The
fo'lowing facts, which huve never
before been in print, I camo across
in a most singular way, and I can
rely or the word of the narrator:
In 1851*52 1 mino' with u man
from Massachusetts named John
Dodiio, on several flats :ind placers
around    Downioville   and    the
Middle   Yuba.     In   1853 I lost
flight of him, bill heard he had
gone Bust.  Iu 1858 I wont with
the rush lo British Columbia and
worked on a good claim, and then
topic  a  trip  to Australia.    In
going from Sydney up  to tho
mines wo camped on a creoit by
tho ruiiilsidu, where a grout many
tennis stoppod on their up aud
down trips, us the water supply
in that dj-y climate was a long
way apart.   The groat teams aud
Atnorican wagons arrived along
toward evening on tho creels in
a perfect stream.
As wo wero eatiug supper wo
beai'd a teamster's voico that 1
thought was familiar, and driving
into camp 1 strolled among the
tenuis, and almost tho first man I.
met  was   my  old   Dowuieville
partner.   Ho was most glad to
see me, and requested me to call
iit'lcr ho had led bis horses and
talk over old times iu California,
He  owned  tbe  outfit  he  was
driving, and wtiB freighted with
hides, tallow and other colouiil
products oo his own account for
back freight.   Lie hud married ill
the   country, and  was doing a
profitable business with his loam.
After talking ot old times iu
Calilornift,   the   whereabouts   oi
old friends and acquaintances, he
said: ".By the Lye, George, you
never  knew why or how I lelt
California so suddenly."   " No,"
I answered;   but   bo  had   not
slipped from my memory,   Bul
many men missed in lhc mines had
lurncd up long ufter thousands of
miles away.    After a few moments' silence he sail; "I wil!

The New Lousiiinjition Cure.
Tho N.Y. World special from
Sbelbyville, Ind,, says: Maggie
D"-*-nigher, the young woman
who began a dog meat diet last
Thursday for the cure of consumption, says she rather likes it,
aud lhat it tastes liko lamb. Many
cases aro cited by lho older citizens in which a permanent euro
for consumption has been effected
by drinking tbe broth of dog
moat, and eating tho flesh of dogs.
Il is said th..t one Gourde Goodrich wus cured in ibis way. Il is
certain that he recovered and
lived to be oighty i-ovon ycais
old, and died finally of infirmities
incident to oil uj��e. It was said
that Dr. John Kennedy, then u
prominent physician, whe wus
treating bim, prescribed tbe

Proposed Kegiiiieut of Irish
Guards.
Tbo United Sorvico Guzottc,
of London, champions tho proposition lo create a division of
Irish g ii .-mis on tbo same
basis as lhc English and Scotch
guards. A petition signed by
military men, und shortly to bo
pi'csonluU lo the t/iu-on, recounts,
among reasons for iho formation
ol the Irish guards, lho famous
services rendered from Unto to
time lo Ureal Britian by Irish
regiments. Ouo ol the niusl interesting of these episodes, and
one lhat will appeal peculiarly to
11 or Majesty, is thai of thu mutiny
at Gibraltar in 1802, when the
Quoon's father, tho Duko of Kent,
was in command of tho forces
stationed there. All depended
on the courso taken by the 54th
