than ever for tne p:'vlleged creature.
S.ie has devised " a bodice with a series

I will pause to remark that never wus
there a time wben greater freedom of
choice was known, or when women were
more completely at liberty to wear what
they liked, or whatever tlieir fancy alicta-
tsd becoming to their fees and figure and
individual style of beauty. It is not tn
the dressmakers or newspapers you nre
indebted for this ooservntion, but to a
lady who might herself set tbe fashion if
she cared to but who is satisfied to dress
herself perfectly, and to let others do as
Ihey pleRse. " If you look aliout vou,"
said she you will not see no two of these
ladies are dressed alike, there is neither
prevailing fashion nf cut und shape, mutiny one prevailing hue like the green of
soine months since. Tbere are "owns
with sleeves end without; there are Empire gowns, aud others which look as if
no Uepubli-Mii would woar them; some
are flat and some are full; some are all
nfone material, some nre half silk and
half lace, divided laterally, not one over
the other, but eaeh hall of thc dress
separate. The only point in which all
agree is in discording tbe camel's hump
at the bs"k." I looked about mens I
was bid,  nnd  saw,   iudeed,  a pleasing
variety of garments; noting most of all
that one which was divided all up nnd
down in two sharply contrasting
nia'.e iala.
Whether the Princess bus gowns in
this style does not appear. The language
of our court newimnii is too lieaiitiful lo
be exact, it must content us to kuow
thut s.ie possesses " u dunning tea gown
of White iio:,led silk, with crene de chine
draped over it iu an Indescribably graceful way, the folds caught up with knots
ol wh'1" moire ribbon ut the shoulder
nnd one at the waist, mnking au effect ut
once classical and severely simple."
W-'l, of course, when a thing is inde-
scr.bnb e it cannot be described ;not even
by a writer capable of saying that a rough
twee'tiding habit is of a golate.i brown
color"., tercepted" by narrow lines much
a'.t.ke in lone—the whole "a dainty
.-"rtleir-an'ike - gi-.nt.otit.'" Not less

leather. He is careful to ni'd (hat "these

ankle." With tliat the historian pauses.
His courage does nut carry liim au far as
that .American enthusiast who Sited half
a dozen columns with the inventory of a
well-known beauty's underclothing,
Themoie discreet Englishman thinks it
sufficient to declare thut the Prii 'ess
Louise's lingerie—u word which pleases
the prudish—"bus been disl.ribu.ed
among the various charitable Institutions
for providing needy persons with remunerative employment us needlewomen."
He utlds that "all ure marked with the
coronet of an English princess, through
which is thrust the letter L." The same
late has befallen the handkerchiefs, "but
it iB probable that the table linen will
bear, eventually, n ducal coronet and the
united initials of the bride and bridegroom."   All's well thut ends well.
There hnve been heartburnings over
the gits; rivalries, too, and complications of a kind whicli ure too intricate to
unravel publically. The three suh?cio-
tions, even with the Duchess of Abereo'-n
at the head of the most important, proved less productive than expected, and I
believe the diamond necklace shrivelled
inlo a diamond pendant, and two nr three
lists were consolidated into one; untl on
the whole it became clear that
most nelsons who ivsve entitled
to o.cr wedding presents to
tho Princess Loc'so preferred to select
tlieir own, however modest. Rather than
be one of n group at $50 a beatl or $25 or
$10. Tho magnificence of Lord Fife's
own gifts to his bride left nothing- t > be
desired, yet even Luia Fife recoiled before that single string of Den-la at the
low price of $180,000 which a Palais
Hoyal jeweller came over from Paris to
propose to him. Lord nnd Lady Rotb-
Bclnld's chrysoberyl.or Cingalesecatseye,
large ns a bnlf-Jollur, set in brilliants,
is said to be the finest single gem given.
Thc emeralds und diamonds which the
Sassoon family clubbed together for, and
the matchless diamond bracelet—composed of stones which never occur in
these days—given by Lord unit Lady
Roscbery, come next.
No complete list bus yet been published, nnd none, iu nny case, could he given

noCK laiorek'h strike.
The strike of London dock laborers
which has been in progress for some
time, has reached a "critical stage, und
oae side or the other must yield witliin a
few days. The men bave so thoroughly
perfected their organization that employers find it impossible to fill
their places and many of the
London docks work is suspended,
specially is the case at the West Indies
dock where sume vestiels have been lying
a week unable to Joad or unload. The
stevedores beltta meeting and unanimously passed a resolution declaring they
will never yield.
doctor wrens.
The Gazelle hns set itself upns the
special champion of Doctor Peters, African explerer, whose vessel was seized by
thu llntisk Admiral Fremont. In Hub
position tbe Gazette stands almost alone.
The German press has quite generally
taken tbe ground this afternoon that the
doctor ami his scheme, more especially
since the Emperor's visit to England,has
so much improved the relations between
lhe two people; the Gazelle says everybody knows that thc Chancellor's organ,
the North German Gazette, is opposing
Doctor Peters only because thut gentleman's personal relations witb Bismarck
nre net plensunt. It seems ridiculous that
thc paper's assertion thut an immense
province iB within the sphere of British
rights in Africa.ainl insists that it lielungs
to Emin to do with and dispose of as he
thinks lit. The Osteite is very bitter and
declares Peters deserted his eountrv at
the behest of England.
UERMANT AND AI'HTRIA.
It is reported from Berlin thut the con
fereuce in whicli tho two Emperors and
their ministers have taken part has resulted in a very material modification of
the alliance existing between Germany
and Austria. Heretofore thc treaty between them proved active only in case
cither was attacked, tbe alteration jest
effected in thc treaty making it obligatory
upon either power to come to the assistance of the othor when the "vital interests are menaced." This modification is
a marked strengthening of the existing
alliance,
IIOl'LANBER.
Frenchmen to tbe number ol -00 called un General Boulanger nt his residence
to-day and presented him with un uildress
of sympathy nntl confidence. In reply
he entered into the matter of his trial
aud conviction by tho French Senate and
took occasion to deny the charges upon
which he was tried. He suid he never,
upon nny occasion,  made use of funds
belonging ta. the state, except while trying to COmpASS th* safety of France,
When attacked by his enemies, if ther
luul been eiteal to appear before any regular tribunal in France lu make answer to
tho outrage, he antl his colleagues would
have hastened to take the first steamer
to France! but such a courso would not
suit the nefarious purpose of those who
for lhe moment were usurping lhe power
of tbe republic. They, for a tribunal,
were composed of bis personal and political enemies und the enemies of his
colleagues, nil of whom were virtually
condemned jeforo it met, Of Frenchmen he only asked tbat he be treated
with fairness am! the triumph of the
present rule which belonged to himself,
would sunn be u thing of the past.

In the Commons this evening it was
stated that Mr. Conybeure, Liberal member for Cornwall, who is now in'prison
for violating the Crimea Act, was suffering severely from the effects of n skin
disease contracted during his incaicer-
ntion. Balfour declared that Conybeare's
malady was not serious, and the speaker
declined to entertain u motion to adjourn
in order to discuss the motion. Replying to a question by Mr. Lnbuiichere,
Sir James Fergussnn, under secretary,
said the statement matle by the Berllu
National Zeitlmg that the recent visit of
Emperor William had recalled in an
identity uf policy on the part of England
with the triple "alliance, was mere conjecture. "England," he snid, "had entered into no engagements fettering her
entire liberty of action."
THE IRISH RAILWAYS Ull.L.
Loudon, Aug. 19.—The Irish Railways
bill came up in the commons to-day, and
Handel Crossbam, Radical member for
East Bristol, moved to recommit. In
speaking in support of bis motion, he advised tbe government to allow the measure to quietly descend into the same
grave us that which now held all there
waa mortal of the once hurtful tithes bill.
Samuel Storry, radical member for Sunderland, also spoke, violently denouncing
tbe measure as one intended by its projectors to work tbe demoralization of the
Irish people, and one which he had no
doubt accomplish the desired result. The
only people, he claimed, which could
possibly be benefitted by this proposal to
build rnilwavs in Ireland at the expense
of English tuxpnyerB, were Irish landlords. After considerable heated debate,
the motion was rejected by a vote of 156
to 37. The minority cousisted chiefly ol
extreme radicals.
INITKD STATES AND  CANADIAN RAILROAD*.
Washington Aug. 19.—Senator Pugh
has just returned from a trip along the
Canadian border as a member of the
select senate committee to look into our
commercial relations wiih Canada.
Senator Hoar, ns chairman of the committee, will superintend the preparation
of a report, and it will show that a very
bitter war is going on between the United
States and Canadian railroads over the
transportation of merchandise. The railways anal steamships controlled by
Canadians are at present offering most
advantageous rates to the shippers of
merchandise throughout tbe Northwest
and Lake regions, consequently they are
getting thc greater portion of the business. A number of interesting and difficult problems are involved which will
receive due attention from congrese.
A   HORRIBLE  CALAMITY.
New York, Aug. 19.—One of the most
awful horrora whicli this city has known
for years came to light early this morning, when a crowdetl west side tenement
house suffered a partial destruction by
fire and many of tbe tenants lost their
lives. At a quarter to 5 o'clock Ibis
morning the tenement bouse No. .'106,
7th Avenue, near 27th Slreet, was (list-overeat on lire. On the firemen reaching the place the building was ablaze
from the ground floor tn thc roof. In the
Btreet outside there was the wildest excitement. A crowd had quickly gathered
ami many tenants who bail made their
escape in their night clothing stood
among the throng weeping bitterly and
almoit frantic witb despair. Tlie firemen
soon had the conflagration iu hand, and
In half an hour all danger from further
destruction wns over. At first it waa
thought that, all the tenants hnd escaped
but the rumor was spread that a woman
was badly burned in one of the rooms
directly over the restaurant. One of the
ambulance surgeons who had been called
clambered up a ladder over the fire escape nml into a window through whieh
dense clonals of smoke still pene-

there were found Wm. lAfcKee, 49 years,

brought before the United States   Inter-j
state Commerce Commission in the shape J
,if the complaints against the Chicago &
'Alton Railroad made by the Rock Island |
aud other roads In the Interstate Hallway
Association; This action is the outcoaie
of tho withdrawal of the Alton road frOjn
lhe association and its subsequent sl-
lempts to secure trallic by concessions iu
rates to nnd from points on western lines
controlled by its own competitors. The
bringing of the complaints is the lirst
formal instance of such procedure on the
part of the Interstate Association. But
it has further interest, from the fact that
it raises the question of how far under
the existing law the commission can act
for the protect ion nf railroads from alleged limine competition.
A PRESS dispatch says: "The Duke of
Fife declines to permit bis wife. Princess
Louise of Wales, to accept any share of
the parliamentary grants to the Royal
family." This must be taken with a vory
liberal dose of salt. It is understood and
believed that the Duke wouM hnve preferred making n provision for his wife
generous enough to support the Roval
dignity; but tbe Prince of Wales very
properly insisted thnt thc daughter of the
heir to the English throne should not go
portionless, and hence the application to
parliament. * The increase of thirty-six
thousand sterling per annum to his income was to enable him to provide for
his children, and il woulal be a peace of
bad form on the part of His Grace 6( File,
of which be is entirely incapable, to object to any settlement proposed by his
Roval father-in-law.
HECRRTAHr Wisdom bus announced ina
letter to the collector of customs at
Detroit, that Ihe free transit of Canadian
ears across thc international boundary
will not be interfered with. It seems that
the Solicitor of Hie Trensurv has for a
long time advocated the imposing of
duties on empty freight cars entering the
United States, and that moterial had
been prepared for u decision on this line.
Assistant Secretary Tiehciior, intlccal told
a correspondent of the Boston Poll July
■tilth, thnt he should probably announce
the opinion the next tiny. Apparently,
however, Secretary Windoin interfered to
prevent such action, and his final determination was in exact accordance with
former rulings by Secretary Fail-child,
Secretary P.outwcll mid others. The collector nt Detroit, for some reason, hns
seemed to be pnrticnlnrly anxious to
have a tnx imposed on empty freight cars
from Canada going in to the United .States.
He raised the issue iu u letter tn Secretary i'airchild last December, nnd again
early in the present, administration. But
Secretary Windoin, in his Instructions to
tbe Detroit collector, says truly enough,
that thc practice of permitting cars owned
in either country to pass to and fro without interruption has continued in force
for over twenty years,and bus never been
impeached in Congress or the courts, nnd
that "the department does not deem it
conformable to the public interest to disturb the decision deliberately reached
mid repeatedly affirmed."
The subject of foreign Immigration has
begun to attract considerable attention iu
Englaad. The Ronrd of Trade published
a ooeuiorandum nut long ago upon the
subject, setting forth facts regarding the
extent to whicli the competition uf foreigners was felt in trmle ami Industry,
The ides which gained ground among
the industrial classes thai foreign immigration bad a direct effect in lowering the
rate of wages led to the appointment of
a committee of the House of Cumnions
te consider the subject. This committee
has just submitted a report. It recommends that an annual census he taken of
aliens arriving and settling iu Great Britain. The action taken by tbe United
States in reference to undesirable immi-
nruuts has attractei the attention of the
committee. It regards the enforcement
of laws similar to those enferced in the
United States against destitute immigrants as inadvisable at present but it
concludes that the country ought to contemplate the early necessity for such legislation, in view of the extreme pressure
•( existence among the poor, and the
temjeney of destitute foreigners to lower
the conditions nf living, especially in
great towns,

Ap2-t AN   OLD   HUNTER'S   STORY.
Wby   tlie   Gray rietmleal   Stranger   Hated
the Sight of a Wolf Skin.
He was along- in years, as I saw by
liis iron gray Deard, and I saw upon
his goods that his namo was Cross.
He was a lull man, und liis build
showed tbat bo wns a man of greet
muscular power. He examined the
wolf skin for a moment, then threw it
from him, muttering a deep curse, the
meaning of which 1 did not understand. I privately usked iny friend
what it meant.
"Ah I" suid bo, "bo has u sud Btory
to toll."
.My neighbor, who bud only como as
n guide, went homo in llio uftcrnoon,
und us Mr. Cross was somewhat fatigued by the journey from tho settlement, wo diu not leave the camp
thut day. I wus very anxious to hear
Mr. C.'s story, nnd niter supper wo sat
around the lire for some tune, telling
ubout the moose untl the various
'things that bud happened during our
few days' stay at lliulicud of Bog river,
which was the nuino of the locality
where we were stopping. After my
fricnil und I hnd exhausted all our
tales, nail forgettinglltutuwful night's
watching at tbo (samp door, wo usked
Mr. Cross to toft us something of his
'.uniting exploits.
"I have but ono story," be replied,
"that will much interest you, but I do
nut often   tell it," and  I saw a tear
glistening in his eye.
I    1 told him wo would bo pleased to
bear bis story, but did not wish for
• bim to call anything to remembrance
that would cause him grief.    Ho re
plied: "Tho wound has been botileil
these many years, though often now
1 it seems to bleed afresh; but my story
uow I will tell.
"I was born in tbo northern pari til
„   Vermont.   My  father was a farmer.
""land us I was the only child, my fu
ther gavo me tho homestead.   Ho died
tiuito young nnd tho care of tlio farm
(►devolved on me.     My  mother soon
became lamo and unable to do the
work, und I resolved to marry.    Dear
Louisa,  a   farmer's   daughter    who
lived but a few miles away, wus lite
rono to whom 1 guvo my heart mid
bund, mid, indeed, sho was worthy of
tho love of any num. My mother soon
after died, and wo laid her besido lit ir
husband in tho churchyard.
"Two children wero born to ns.
Tommy and Louisa. Wo watched
over them in their infancy, and loved
Ihem dearly. Tommy was 7, and
fjouie, as wo culled her, was 5. School
was to commence tho next Monday,
und us tbey had never been to school,
wo made arrangements to send them.
The sclioolbousc was ubout one-half
it milo off, boyond a picco of woods.
I went with them the lirst and second
day, and met them at night, as they
wero ufi-aid to go through tbo woods
ulone; but tlio third day Tommy said,
'Papa need not go with us any more,
wo can go alone.' 1 granted their
wish, unci soon saw them disappear,
going toward tbo schoolbouse, swinging tlieir littlo dinner pails.
"They had been gono but ti few
minutes. I bad taken up my ax, and
was about commencing to cut some
wood. I heard little Tommy screuni i
'0 dear, papal 0 dear, papal' burst
upon my ears; and ut tlio samo moment I heard littlo Lulie call mamma,
f momma I It is needless lo say that i
rushed to their rescue, tightly grasping my nx. In ono iniiiuto I saw two
wolves tearing ray dear children to
pieces. With an unearthly yoll, I
rushed upon them. Ono left my child
and sprung upon mo j bo lay dead the
next instant. I sprang upon tho otlier
tliat was tearing tbo flesh from tlie
cheek of my littlo girl; but ho run
swiftly away. Poor littlo Lulie was
dead: littlo Tommy raised his torn
and bloody hand, and faintly said:
'0 papa, I wish you como fore I' It
was his last words; in n fow moments
ho breathed his last. I took my dear
ones in my arms, and curried them to
my house. My wifo was nt the burn.
I lay them on tho bed; my wifo soon
camo in. Sbe looked upon her cliil
dren, uttered a fearful wail of sorrow,
and fell almost lifeless upon the floor!
The shock was too much for her, and
indeed, more than many mothers
could havo stood, und within out
. month sho died a raving maniac. She
sleeps in Vermont beside her dear babes
sho loved so well." When he had finished his story thero was not a dry eye
in tho camp, and for some timo not a
word was spoken. But tho evening
was far spent, and wo soon retired to
, our beds to dream ovor the events of
tho day. —Thomas A. Crubtree in Lew-
' iston Journal.
The Canala of Mare.
As to tho naturo of tho canals, it is
still moro diflleult to suggest any satisfactory explanation. Several hypotheses havo been presented, none of
which appears entirely to meet the
case. I havo a 1 ready remarked that
there has not been lacking the suggestion that these curious streaks repre-
, sent tbe lines of actual urtif Iciul water
courses on Mars. Tho straight and
undeviatiug courso which thoy piirsuo
.might bo regarded as lending some
"degree of probability to such a view;
| but tho enormous scale on which tbey
exist seems to compel the roicction of
tlie hypothesis. It is truo that, if we
consider only the influence of the
force of gravity on Mars, giants could
dwell upon that planet whose
mechanical achievements might vastly
surpass the greatest performances of
our engineers; for a body weighing a
ton on the earth would weigh only
seventy hundred and sixty pounds on
Mars, and, on tho other hand, a man
on Mars possessing relatively the
same activity as one of us might be
fifteen feet tall and strong iu proportion. But, even granting the existence of such a race of Goliatits on our
neighbor world, it is not couceivable
that they could have constructed a
system of tremendous canals over half
tne surface of their planet, or that
they would have done it if they could.
The canals of Mars aro enormously
dispronortioned in magnitude to the
most gigantic inhabitants that a due
regard for tho law of gravitation
would suffer us to imagine there.—

AdviCC to invalids—If  you wub to Obtain
quiet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
relief from pain and anguish, to calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems ofthe body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical .Staff), to whieh
he gave the name of CHLORODYNE, and
which is admitted hy the profession to he thu
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CIILORODYNK is the best remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODVNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CIILORODYNK effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis. &: . ike.
From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5*.h,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Uloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation th>; justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Ilindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as, general Sedative, that have occurred
Und-.tr our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Choleia itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -iny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as we nre of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE, We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm, Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists,
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnanccllor Sir W.

was, undoubtedly, the inventor uf Chlorodyne; that the story of the defendant, Frcn

regretted to say, had Uxn sworn to —Se*

Aid. Night'Bga'e remarked that il was
about time the men working on the City
Hall hestTred themselves; they had
been taking metiers pretty easily  lately.
Aid. Hilbert wished to know who had
charge of the city gas lamps, as they had
not been lighted for several 'lights when
it was dork. I may say that a man wbo
was wa'l Ing with me fell into the glitter
on one occasion.
Aid. Abrams—In reply to Aid. Ililberl,
I Would like to state that the Ga« Company bad only two retorts in working
order for the last few weeks.
The Mayor—The street lighting committee should see to this matter.
Aid. Ahrsms—There were only live nr
six lamp* lighted in the city during tlie
last few il«'k nights.
A hi Hilbett thought, thnt the company
ought, to ios-rt notices iu the Cotisiua
wht-11 theie was a doubt nf their being
able lo supply gas In the people.
Aid. Peck moved Ihnl the lighting committee do not pay for the pciiod dining
whit-ls they have pot received light.
Aid, Nightingale—Mr. Cr-we says that
Jsa will endeavor to do better ia the
future.
Aid. Baker snid that the tins Company
had never given satisfaction, and that if
they alial not light up the lamps the city
bad no right to pay then,. The company
has always receiveal the money they have
calleil for. notwithstanding the "growling" that has occtu real among the citi/ens.
It is a matter of Impossibility for tbe
lighting committee to find out the true
state of all'airs for themselves; they have
to be governed by the voice of the people.
Aid. Hilbert—We ought not to lake
anv action in thc matter this time, as the
company mny not charge lor the lumps
not used.
Al.l. Peek moved, seconded hy Aid.
Webb, that the street lighting comm'ttee
do not pa)' for the lamps not usnl during
Lhe snid days that Ihey were not liglitc.l.
Passed.
Aid. Webb wished 10 know il the street
committee intended lo drain Lubbock
Square.
Aid. Webb-That place has to be drained, or something will happen.
Aid. Baker: The place can easily be
drained. I still maintain there is ns good
gravel there ns anywhere else.
Aid. Nightingale: I put a mnn screening one day Inst week and he worked out
about two loads, that is to say. lie made
a fair day's wages at the rate ive arc being
charge,! hy the ra'lway company. Il
might boas well to put downs wooden
tramway from Ibe square to truck tbe
gravel lo its destination.
Aid. Baker: I tbink il would lie a
good idea to let the offer of the K. ,*: N.
R. R. stand over for a lone.
Aid, Webb: When arc Ihe sidewalks
on Victoria Crescent to be fixed up,
Theie is on'v one month iu which to do
the work.
Aid. Hilbert: Is Hie street committee
looking after the lumber that is being
taken from the sidewalks umler repair-?
Aid. Nightingale, on behalf the street
committee, said he thought it would take
lots of planks to repair the sidewalks.
The council Ihen adjourned.
