THE TWO EMPERORS.
Berlin, Aug. 14.—Emperor Wiiliam
untl the Emperor of Austria left Berlin
at 7:40 o'clock this morning for Spundan,
where a sham light takes place. Four
battalions of troops crossed the river
Havel, which at this point is 450 meters
wide, on a bridge constructed of 80 pontoons. The budding of the bridge and
the passage of the troops were accomplished in a remarkably short time. The
battle took place on the heights south of
Spandan. One division of the ten
battalions used the new smokeless powder and their opponents used the old
style of powder. The contract between
the effects of the two explosives was
striking. The troops using old ponder
being completely enveloped in smoke,
the action ending in the western forces
being thrown back on Spandan.
After tbe battle Emperor William called
tbe officers together and criticised tbe
operations, Tho two Emperors lunched
iu a tent that had been specially raised
on the field for the purpose. They returned to Berlin ut 1 o'clock.

but the court refused to admit that, there

THE WHITECHAPEL INQUEST.
London, Aug. 14.—Working-nan's Institute in Whitechapel Road was crowded
with an ill-assorted collection ef humanity
this morning, when Coroner Baxter, of
Middlesex, resumed the inquest on ihe
hotly of Alice Mackenzie, the woman wbo
was murdered and mutilated by "Jack
the Ripper" ou July 14th. The inquiry
had been postponed until to-day in the
hope tbat the efforts of the police to capture the murderer would prove successful.
At this morning's session, however, Detective Inspector Reid and officers Walker, Reid and Joseph Allen, wbo hnve been
specially detailed on the case, teetilied
that not a clue had been secured which
was calculated to lead to the detection of
the criminal, and the jury therefore returned a verdict of "wilful murder
against some person or persons unknown."
PEACE TAI.X.
Berlin, Aug. 14.—Al the banquet which
was given at the castle yesterday in honor of Emperor Francis Joseph, Emperor
William, in his toast to his imperial guest,
said: "You learned from the Joyful reception with which yon were welcomed
by our people that they arc (Wed with a
warm and lively consciousness of the
friendship which has existed between
your people and mine for a century. Before all is this consciousness manifested
by the army, u portion of which you saw
to-day, proud at being permit ted to appear before your soldierly eye. My people, like the army, will hold firmly and
faithfully to the alliance we concluded.
The arniy knows lhat for the maintain-
ance of peace it will have to join with the
gallant army of Austria, and 'f Providence
so wills will fight shoulder to shoulder
with it." The Austrian Emperor thanked
his host for tbe brilliant reception accorded bim and toasted his friend nntl
ally. "Two such gallant, armies as those
of Germany and Austria," he said, "increased the guarantees of peace."
1IERRY REFUSES TO HANG HER

Bismarck had a conference which lusted
an hour.
TUB  TITHES  HCKS'I'ION   SETTLED.
Loudon, Aug. 14.—In tbe Commons
to-ni**lit Attorney-tieneral Webster announced that Ihe government had decided to st, amend the pending Tithes
Recovery Bill as to incorporate the views
of the opposition who supported Mr.
(iray's amendment which wss defeated
by just four votes. This will make the
landlord alone liable to payment of tithes
so that ho can't saddle the charge upon
hiB tenants, even by special agreement.
The government, however, insists upon
it that such agreements as now exist between landlords antl tenants for payment of tithes shall hot be interfered
with.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Liberal
member for Derby, suid that this decision ou the part of the government so
entirely altered the character of the
measure that it became equivalent ki a
new bill. He was highly gratified at tb*
recognition of the principle for which the
Liberal party had nil along contended,
but the charge involved such an alteration in the whole of the tithes system
and materially affected such immense
interests that Liberals would ask time to
scrutinize the new bill on paper liefore
accepting it. To this Mr. Smith readily
assented antl bill went over.

THE ELIXIP, OF LIFE.
It has been reported of an old Scotch
lady that she said, "In this world we
were only sure of two things, death and
marriage." Sat) to relate, she was never
led to the alter, and died in the maiden
state, lt would appear now that even
the former is by no means so sure as oltl
fashioned folk havo been accustomed to
think. Professor Brow.v-Seo.iard, the
eminent French biologist and physician,
is now 72years old, and his health and
strength bave been gradually failing for
tbe past twelve veurs, so that a few
months ago he wus only able to stum! up
during half un hour of laboratory work,
und three er four hours of sudi work,
even in th* sitting posture, so exhausted
bins' that he was compelled to retire immediately on his return to his home. He
was also compelled, through failing
strength, to walk slowly and carefully
up stairs, occasionally assisting himself
in difficult places by means of the banisters. Mentally, also, be was unequal te
anything like the sustained efforts
of former years. All this, however, has been _* changed. For
many years the professor cherished
the belief that tliere was no really good
reason why we should not eat, work and
sleep from day to day, without any impairment of power, if some means could
be found to balance tbe processes of nutrition and waste. Hitherto, it was found
that no matter how carefully we lived,
the machinery did, in some mysterious
way, at certain well-known periods, undergo marked changes and give plain evidence of giving way and weakening
under the various strains antl vicissitudes of life. After more than thirty
years of investigation the professor considered that everything was ripe for the
trial. Blood from certain tissues of
young animals was injected under Ihe
skin of old and decrepit rabbits, and
after a few weeks of such treatment they
became virtually young, recovering all
the vigor and friskincss of youth. The
next ^experiments the professor generously made on himself, and after a few
weeks ef treatment he has recovered all
the strength of bis most vigorous days,
lieing    able     to      riaal,     up     th*.     aituaro,
work all day and reatl half the
night. Dr. A'ariot, of Paris, made similar experiments ou a number of old gentlemen, and without exception they are
reported to have responded with equal
promptness te the treatment. In short,
the professor thinks that he is now able
to practically "roll buck the title of time,"
and that man will not grow weak with
the lapse of time; that death will, in the
future, lie only due lo accidents and accidental diseases, so that if a person obey
the laws pf health he may count on living
century after century, increasing ami extending his knowledge and usefulness and
living long enough to see himself appreciated, if he have any real merit. Ths
advantages tn science will be something
incalculable. Instead ol leaving one's
work half done, nian can just go right on,
not leaving to others the task of completing his work. He can always take his
time, knowing that as he is going to stay
always he may pursue his investigations
with a certain and equitable temperament, which, under existing circumstances, would be impossible and unwise.
MISCELLANEOUS NOTES.
Tut employment ef dynamite for the
purpose of committing outrages has un
fortqnately made iu way to Japan. Quite
recently the Higashi Hongwanji in Kioto
oue of the most famous temples in the
neiintry, has been restored, and amongst
ether presents sent to celebrate the restoration were 500 candles. Two days later
ene of theso was lighted, and almost immediately exploded with a lend report,
filling the building with smoke and flame.
On examination it turned out that all tbe
candle* were filled with dynamite. Happily tha beautiful ceiling was not injured.
Wats* for drinking purposes should
never be below 80 degrees, says Dr.
Hammond to the Nortli Americau Review.
"We can almost always get it even in the
hottest weather as cool as this by letting
it run for a minute or two from any
household faucet, or drawing it from any
country well. If not, there is no objection to cooling it to the point mentioned.
The East India "monkey," which can
now .be had almost anywhere in this
country, *!Md try'means of which tin
contained jftier is cooled by its own
evaporation, answers Ihe purpose admirably., I am quite sure that, if ice-water
should be generally discarded as a drink,
the ayerajfe duration of life would be
lengthened and existence rendered more
tolerable. "
What the United Slates papers do hot
know regarding the Canadian Pacific railway—and that it u great deal—they draw
upon their imagination for. President
Van Home has been writing to the Boston press to correct some wiltl assertions
made regarding the Canadian line. He
declares that the United Stales Government was infinitely more liberal to the
Pacific lines than was the Dominion
Government to Ihe Canadian Pacific
Railway Company. He says lhe Canadian Pacific Company fulfilled its contract, with the Dominion Government
some years ago, antl it stands on its owu
feet as a strictly commercial concern,
having no closer relation to the Dominion Government than has the Baltimore
tt Ohio company to the United States
Government. Mr. Van Home adduces
figures showing that out of a total of
744,021 tons the Canadian Pacific carried
12,862 tons, or 1 72-100 per cent., oronly
one-fifty-fiftli part of the business between the I'aeilie coast anil the Easteau
States, and adds i "Is it because of anything like this Hint Congress is seriously
asked to legislato against the competition of Canadian railways lo make laws
which would destroy many railway properties in the United States ami do incalculable injury to many cities and
even States? And for whose benefit is
such an extraordinary thing asked?"

mldll't havo mo look like a fright."
'Oh, yes, that ls very pretty, but doesn't
3 same gentleman remark somowhero that

But ho didn't livo lu New York, papa, and
"Tji to Delmonlco balR" Ami then poor papa,
jing nothing but a meek American million-
re,   grumbled  and  t'unicd  a little,   and
I'nally put two crisp greenbacks into a littlo
L rosebud bund, and, with a kiss as light as
.liistlo down  and   after calling   bim  "you
ai-liug old dear," she ran away.
l An unwilling but interested listener to tho
tiiresLiiig  conversation,  I  began to won-
i- what it cost to dress a young lady of
f 'ihion.   At tho rato of (UXX) a week It would
over $10,000 u year, and as my income avas
I ly half that and my lady lovo a person of
L ihion I pondered.    I asked a young mar-
x man at tho club how much his wifo
i ut a year on her clothes.   1 know 1 put
W-Jr question meekly, but ho howled at ino to
|jfo to thunder  with   my   Impertinence,'1
pi so 1 went—or, rather, 1  went to visit
aged   fentalo   relative.   Sho   told   tne
' T,t elo'hi's bad gotten bi'youd ber, and said
v sho know was that ber granddaughter
' lid "danco a 1300 ball dress to ribbons iu
alght."   Then I becamo frightened, and so
' .tilted a nice littlo debutante who voltiu-
1 -''ed to post mo on clothes.
' 'Of course thero is no limit to tho amount
. j can spond on clothes," sho began.   "If
J*f'i want to go to Worth and Pingat, or, in
-■t, tb any of tbo fashionable Paris dress-
| hkers, you will bo obliged to pay a protty
^Itsonable price.    1 bavo a very nico wosrd-
' 3 this year, aud it cost papa just $3,000.
en wo camo homo from Europe I brought
t two Paris dresses, because, don't you
,iow, if you can't say, 'Somo of my things
imported,' you aro really nobody.    Ono
.. a perfect lovo of a ball dross, you know,
.•ore it tho other night, that palo yellow

I Advice to invalids—If yon v.uh to omain
I quiet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
I relief from pain and anguish, lo 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 which
he gave the name of CHLORODVNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the best remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Brunch.tis.
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhoea, and is lhe only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis, &:, &c.
From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
.880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindustan, 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 thc
native bazaars, nnd judging from their silet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. Wc could multiply instances
infinitum of thc extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as t, general Sedative, that have occurred
uncLr our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
thc more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used iny other form 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 ore ofthe
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-Cnancellor Sir \V.
Page Wood stated that Dr. J, Collis Browne
was, undoubtedly, the inventor of Chlorodyne; that the story of the defendant, Fret
man, was deliberately untrue, which, ht
regretted to say, had been sworn to —Se«

W. Todd, a colored man who recently
attempted to escape from the chain gang,
was brought before the Court anil decided to b» tried under the Speedv Trials
Act.
The prisoner pleaded guilty.
Todd laid he and Brown, who escaped,
removed their shackles by means of files
and a saw. He didn't know where the
implements came from, but received a
file from Brown. The saw was made
from an old knife. The work of sawing
and filing the rivets was partly done during the night, so that the finishing
touches did not take long.
Hie Lordship waa surprised at Todd's
attempting to escape as he had beeu
treated very well and kindly by the authorities.
His Loulship had always been in favor
of a partial remission of sentence if prisoners conducted themselves well, and
after a long experience he was still of
the tame opinion. As he did not consider Todd to have been the leader in
the affair he would only sentence him tn
two months' additional imprisonment.

Tag-tart Bros., painters, have left tbo
city in a mysterious manner und with
other people's property. It seems that
on Monday evening they went to Campbell A Foreman's boat house and hired a
boat with the, intention, us they said, nf
going for a lathe; but a* they did not
return to the cily investigations were
wade, which revealed several large debts
owedby them to merchants in town, and
also that they had not paid tbeir work-
wen for some time.
By reference te the Commit of yesterday it will be seen that a party of pleasure seekers returning from Salt. Spring
Island en Tuesday morning encountered
a boat containing two, which should have
read three, men who said they were lost
ami enquired the way to Vancouver
Island, but on being shewn did not exhibit any ambition to reach there, steering
for Victoria. In all probability Tsggart
Bros, were in that boat, as its occupant*
did not care to approach very. closely to
the yacht containing the pleasure narty.
Taggtrt Bros, always appeared well-to-
do and honest while in this city, and it is
a surprise to those who knew them that
they look such means of leaving.
The Cora-na representative who was
in Rev. Mr. Rolierts' yacht, returning
(rem the concert at Salt Spring, remarked
that the face ef one of the men iu the
rawboat was familiar, but was unable to
"place" him exactly. Who the other
*wo were he did not known.

The. defendant testified that the eon-
tract price was $00 and if he had imagined that tlie cost of repairs would be $130
it would have suited hiin better to purchase a new one. s.
