(_Fj--.ni thc London Timet.)
At intervals of twelve months we are c-ener-
ally favoured with a communication from
that benevolent Society which stands in permanent antagonism to Slavery throughout
thc world. Sometimes we get a formal but
rather objectless "report;" sometimes an indict ment of thc West Indian proprietors, as
if they wero slaveowners still; and occasionally a tirade against free emigration equivalent to a denunciation of _Nogro labour under
any form, these communications wc generally submit to popular judgment, and givo
Ihcm, at any rate, tho desired publicity if not
the desired support. To-day wc find ourselves at tho old work again, with an energetic ' appeal' before us and a summary of
facts which are certainly ofa most notable
character. Up to a certain point, ind, d, *s
is impossible to do otherwiso than concur in
tho views which - the Committee ofthe British and ' Foreign Anti-slavery .Society ' have
Incorporated  by lloyal Charter in  1840.

by the slave dealers to escape detection. Such information is perfectly unnecessary. It may be taken for
granted that we shall bc always outwitted in a contest
like this, where we have nothing but force to oppose
to self-interest and cunning, and where force cannot be
exerted except under embarrnsing restrictions. So long
as Cuban planters arc ready lo buy, people will be
found ready to sell, and slaves will make their way to
Havannab as surely as cotton does to England.
This brings us, then, to the point ofthe present appeal. What does the Anli-slavery society propose to
do? ''The time has arrived." says the committee,
"when something must bo seriously attempted to put
an end to this n*ful state of things." We nre much of
that opinion, but what form is the attempt to Jake?
That is what we now learn. The committee, wc are
told, " have suggested to Lord John Russell to demand
of Spain ihe immediate cessation ofthe slave trade, or
to intimate that Great Britain will require the reimbursement, willi interest, of lhe £400,000 compensation
money paid to Spain in 181', for her discontinuance of
the traffic, and the cessation of diplomatic intercourse.''
There is lhe course chalked out for us, but we must
needs say that we cannot look upon it with any great
aim,unt. of confidence. We doubt if Spain would either
assent to our proposition or bc much alarmed at the alternative. We do not think we should very easily get
the £400,000, and interest, .ind it would bc a poor setoff against our £40,0110,000 if we did. Thc scheme is
so far good that it proceeds on the right principle. If
lhe importation of slaves into Cuba could bo effectually
prohibited by the Spanish Government, or actually prebend placod before the country. "Since 1851 vented by the authorities of tbe colony, ihe slave trade
Great Britain has expended, upon an average, ' would be lU an end' anu witn H our expenditure also;
more than one million pounds sterling annu- ,!"" ^ T'1'10'1. b*v ^hmb this consummation is to be
,, ., .   i .,        ,   o .,   I brought  about is   precisely    he question  winch   has
ally, or, in other words, moro than forty mil-! never yet been solved,
lion pound* sterling, in attempting to put an
end to the Slave Trade.' That is the first point
taken, f here, in its own words and its own
typo, is tho estimate formed by the anti-slavery society of the burden which our policy
has imposed upon the British taxpayer. It is
not the estimate of any grudging economist
or eoldhearted financier anxious to alarm his
countrymen by the enormity of tho accouut,
lut a simple piece ot reckoning, calculated by
thc very people with whoso special sympathies the money has been spent, and placed
at the head ofthe appeal which they have addressed to the public. The figures arc certainly conside: a'lo. We had never, for our
own part, put them quite so high, but tho
Committee knows what it is about, no doubt,
and perhaps, in one way or another, the outlay may reach really this incredible amount}
Imagine our taxation lightened by a reduction
bfa million. Imagine that sum spent annually upon public works or institutions! Imagine all that might be done lor education, zc'r
ence, public health, or public advantage, if
such a sum wcre available for those objects,
and it will soon bc felt how very substantial
is the sacrifice thus made.
We next come to the results, also estimated
on the same partial authority. A Commodore on ths African Station writes to the Admiralty the slave trade 'is conducted on a
scale as formidable as it was ten years back.
A lieitr-Adiuiral reports that 'for many
years tho prospect of putting down thc slave
trade has seldom been less encouraging.' Tho
British Commissary Jtidgo at ilavannah
communicates to the Government at home,
enormous increase ofthe slave trade ■' within
the year this day ended' ( December thirty-
first eighteen hundred and fifty eight). Lord
Malmesbury writes to thc British Minister at
-Madrid that the slave trade is undoubtedly
carried on in Cuba " to an extent little,"if at
all, inferior" to that which prevailed beforo
its abolition was agreod upon ■ and, finally,
Lord John Russcl gives as the latest statistics
on tho subject, b}* declaring in the House of
Commons this very session, that from thirty
; to forty thousand slaves aro imported into
Cuba every year from the coast ot Africa, in
despite of all our endeavors to intercept thc
| supply by our eternal blockade.
Hero, then, is an account ol our investment
as rendered by the Anti-slavery society itself.
The reader may safely accept tho word of it-
It is all as true as gospel Wo havo said the
same thing ourselves fifty times over; in fact,
we have said a little more- Thero aro still
ono or two items to bc added to thc wrong
side of tho account. Wc observe, indeed, that
the committee docs oo this occasion condescend to add to the forty millions sterling sunk
in this enterprise tho ''loss of thousands of
lives" as woll as of numorotiH costly vessels ol
war: and it might havo been further stated
that tho sufferings ot tho Negroes themselves,
as thc Anti-slavery society has elsewhere acknowledged, have been actually aggravated
bv ti;c operation of the, system pursued. JJis-
hearteniiig, too, ?.s these results aro, they aro
perfectly natufjl. Rml mn8t bo c-*Pcetei1 t0
continue without chu.nge so Iong as tho conditions of the caso remal.n tho same Cuba
provides a market for slaves' in which the
price is so high and the demand so ^tendy as
to make the trade infallibly remttnei.'.'-ive'
Wo need only extract the statements of t'tiC
appeal before us to show thc reason why the
slave Trade flourishes in spite of all we can do
to put it down- A negro can be bought on
the Coast of Africa for four pounds; ho can be
sold in Cuba for two hundred. Our cruisors
generally capture about thirty-three per cent,
ofthe voxels engaged in the traffic ; sixty-six
per cent, mako a safe run ot it. Anybody may
computo tho profits of such a business- Tlio
committee puts them, for tho year eighteen
hundred aud fitty sevoft, -vt one thousand
four hundred per cent- oftho capital embarked.
They are prodigious enough, at any rate, to make it
absolutely certain that so long as they can bc realized
the trade will be carried on. It is equally certain that
they will continue, to be realized, for anything we can
do in the way of blockade. Thc appeal before us enters with superfluous detail into thc maneuvers adopted

XVhy arc Diseases so Fatal in Tropical Climates t
Merely because we prescribe For their effect, instead
of their cause, and try to relieve symptoms instead of
Hiking at their root, Thc action of these Pills is precisely the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid matter which produces inflammation, pain, fever, debility, and physical
decay; and the basis of disease being removed, its
manifestations vanish. While ordinary remedies only
afford a temporary respite to the sufferer, whereas these
Pills annihilate the disorder.
Ill Health in Hot Countries,
Frequently arises from nervous disorders affecting
the action of the heart and deranging the whole animal economy ; these fine Pills will restore thc nervous
systotn however deranged, and bring back health and
spirits when all other medicine has failed.
Bilious and Liver Complaints.
Frequently lead to the worst phases of human suffering, yet bow many in the East and West Indies, and
most of our Foreign Possessions, are thus afflicted, unknowing the means of cure placed within their grasp ;
such should take a few boxes of these Pills according
to the directions given ill the books, and their ailments
will quickly leave them.
Dropsical Swellings and Turn of Life.
This is a most disastrous period in woman'! history,
it destroys thousands, the whole of the gross humors
collect together, nnd like a tide sweep away health and
life itself, if not timely and powerfully checked. The
most certain remedy for nil these dangerous symptoms
is Holloway's Pills. Armed with Ibis great antidote,
thc fiery ordeal is passed through, and the sufferer is
once more restored to the possession of unimpaired
health. These Pills are equally efficacious in all female complaints, aud obstructions at the dawn of
Stomach and Liver Complaints.
These arc complaints of the million, particularly of
those in warm latitudes ; few escape them ; mid, if
neglected, Ihey lead to innumerable dangerous maladies
But why neglect then, when Holloway's Pills will eradicate them ns certainly as water extinguishes fire'?
They relieve the bowels, purify the fluids, and invigorate the system and the constitution at the same time.
They are admitted by virtue of special decrees into Ihe
dominions of despotism, and thus have become a grpi.t
household remedy.
Dysentery antl Bowel Complaints.
These famous Pills should be taken once or twice a
week by nil classes in this part of the world, by which
means, none need fear the attacks of these direful
A  XX'ord lo Females.
The local debility nnd irregularities which ftl'e the
spccinl annoyance of the weaker sex, and which, when

ships ofthe United States   from our Carrying Trade,
How unapprcciativcis humanity of that liberality and charily which begin abroad but which
never approach our own  fire-sides-    Tn what
an inimitable manner has   Dickens portrayed
that philanthropic lady whose bosom yearned
for the heathens of Southern and Western Africa—whoso heart bled  for those races  with
the difficult names—and whose whole life waa
.pent in  missionary  efforts to supply  them
with blankets    Were she  asked for her mite
to ameliorate the condition oftho poor in her
neighborhood, her vision which   was continually on the stretch so many thousand  miles,
could never bring itself to so confined a range.
Did her children   tumble down stair*-, or  exhibit indications of hard knocks,ragged clothes
and dirty faces, was not her whole mind taken
up with the spiritual  and  social welfare ofa
people whose claims on her  charity  were of
infinitely more  importance than   that of her
offspring.     What a  masrnaiiimoue creature!
exclaims the philanthropist ofthe outer world
—what a stupid, unnatural fool cries those acquainted with her domestic "regime*'    How
typical is all this of" Mother England "   and
her colonies.    Building up other nations  not
only at the expense of her shipping  interest,
but to the ruinous detriment of her  colonial
possessions.    Wc can understand that nation
which,   unapproachable    in  its  amount   of
wealth,  unequalled in its commercial   talent,
and placed, through years of energy, in a position far beyond competition, magnanimously
throw its trade open tothe eon,Lined world-
like a knight  armed cap a-pie   hurling his
gauntlet into the ringasa challengetoa number ot   ragged and balf-htarved  competitors.
This  is certainly not difficult of comprehension, for wc see al once its immediate results in
a vastly increased trade and the obtaining  of
all  the  credit that can attach   itself   to  the
name  of being  liberal-    But to sacrifice  an
interest  which   has  been the nursery of   her
navy in the time of war, and the perpetuation
of hor commercial supremacy  in   time    of
peace, and   to throw her colonies helpless on
the  tender mercies of rival countries,  ie  an
act, not only of the. most unconscionable folly,
but of tho rankest injustice to every depend-
ancy ot the Britisli Empire.   In what a pros-
petoaft* position would we.have been to-day
had cither tbe navigation laws been repealed
or the Americans compelled to  reciprocate.
We  ehould then have had a line of British
steamers and British sailing vessels, and English  immigration would have found as great.

when even  a very ordinary  English steam

obliged  to haul off through the opposition of
two or threo miserable tubs that take actually
moro  than  twice  the  number  of hours   to

So completely isolated as we are, this want

cripple our energies in the extension of trade,

the most ruinous effects on boat building tn the

ever think of building a vessel under a flag
that boasts of so few cimmcrcial privileges?
We arc sorry that Britisli Columbia can not

Ilis Excellency, as Governor of Iiriti-Tti Columbia, will also interest himself to obtain for us
such a treaty as will enable Rritish,vessels to
enjoy the American coasting trade on tho pacific- AVe arc quite certain that the boos
would be obtained without any difficulty if
England only showed a little e&rnestness in
depriving America, (in default of her granting such concessions) of the coasting trade
with the r,riti»h colonies. Our Republican
neighbors would think twice before they would
bring such irrotrivableruin upon themselves
—creating a panic from ono end ofthe country
to the other, and causing thousands ol their
mercantile marine to lie and rot in tlie docks
as so many structures of ingenious folly.
As tbe winter approaches thc miners arc gradually
deserting the more mountainous portions of tbe interior nnd by degrees augmenting thc population of less
frigid regions. Cayoosh is, peihaps, the most fortunate town in this respect, its population having increased fully 600 during the last few weeks. Three
hundred of those are, however. Chinamen. The miners here are doing ns well, taking the cheapness of
provision into account, ns the mucli-tnlkcd-of pioneers
of lbe Curriboo. Thc average rate of wages is about
$7 per day. One company of Cornisbmcn are making
from S15 to §20 per diem. Tbis party came down
from the Upper country a year ago last August, with
hut a few dollars in their possession. Getting sullici-
eicnt credit, however, they commenced cutting a ditch
ahout the beginning of October, to bring water from a
creek between French liar and Rridgo river. The work
wns completed at the latter end of May, when two of
the party, which originally consisted of eight, sold out
their interest tor S_000 each. The ditch contained
about twelve sluice-beads of water, which was rented
to the miners at 25 cents an inch per day. The comiiany have paid over $6000, which they had entailed
during the progress of the work. Another race is in
course of construction from a creek two miles from
Texas Bar, and will measure, when completed (which
it is expected will take place in April, nbout fourteen
miles. It is intended to bring the water through Texas
Rar, Dutch Flat, and the Dry Diggings, the latter place
being thirteen miles farther down the river than Texas
Bar. The ditch will carry ai 'cast 80 sluice-heads, nnd
will be the largest work of the kind yet constructed in
t on the Atlantic, and Commodore Van- j the colony.    When brought to the diggings mentioned,
Mr. Hick. This building, which ii almost completed
is three stories high and built in the most substantial
manner. It is the large.t house that lids been erected
in New Westminster. .Mrs. Lawless has also extended
her premises from tbe water front to Columbia-street,
and a neat-looking saloon with a very friendly lamp
give an appearance of cheeri'uln-s1: to this part of
tiie town thnt it had sadly wanted before. A v»ry
large building has been erected on thc water front by
Mr. Harris, which bas already In en rented by several
business occupants—a store by Mr. Herkimer—a restaurant by Mrs. Lawless, end another store will quickly
be occupied. A two story building will shortly be
built by Mr. Clnrkson next to the one occupied by-
Mr. Tilley and Mr. Herkimer. Mr. Holbrook intends
erecting, iu the course of a few months, a large brick
warehouse. A number of private residence, will
also shortly be erected—the most important, of which are
'.apt. Cooper's and Mr. liitsbby's. Upwards of twenty
substantial cabins have been recently put up by tbe
miners who intend remaining in New Westminster
during the winter, and the workmen employed on the
streets. We hive also a large numb.r of Chinese encamped on Victoria Gardens who ., 1 no doubt add to
the business of the place so far ,: a consumption of
rice is concerted. Altogether v. i have obtained at
least 300additional residentsduringtholasttwo months;
and we believe that next winter will see ten permanent residents in New Westminster whore one exists at
the present time, if we may take such an increased confidence in the resources ofthe colony (as is everywhere
apparent) as a truthful indication..
Saw-mill,—We understand that thero is a second
saw-mill about being erected at Cayoosh by Mr. James.
The number of buildings ,it present going on in that
town make such a step a matter of necessity to supply
the demand.

A motion was carried to re-ndvcrlizi. the tenders for

contract refusing to perform it at the [trice. A resolution was passed to remove the money received from the
taxes to tlie Treasury until a satisfactory arrangement
could be made about tbe bonds. A committee was appointed to memorialise the Governor on thc question of
a grant for an additional £1000, After passing a few-
more resolutions of less importance, the Council adjourned till Monday, November Vi,
A meeting wns held on Tuesday evening at the. Courthouse to take into considerati n the best means to be.
adopted for the construction of roads through the agricultural districts round about New Westminster. The
President ofthe Municipal Council pursunnttopotitlon,
called the meeting together, staling that tbey had met
tha', evening to exercise a legitimate, and peaceful method
of persuading or otherwise influencing the Government
to adopt, certain measures, which it was believed by the
inhabitants of this portion of British Columbia were essentially necessary to the welfare of the colony. Those
mca'suiti'M, in the present instai'.r-s-v/.e.ro.'Jw coiistwuition
of highways through the agricultural districts in tho vicinity of New Westminster. Oilier subjects, he bad no
doubt, would also be brought beforo the tbe notice of
those present before the meeting closed—foremost
amongst which was tbe establishment, of a Light-ship
al the entrance to Frascr River, lie then reqnesled the
meeting to elect their chairman
! and he did not sec how th i matter was to be mended
by constructing a road through that district—more especially to English Bay.
Mr. liiiiui r wished to mr.kc the following nmeadmenl
which, after some confusion and luisuiiderstnnilinj
about whether the meeting had power to entertain «,;
Other thun the road question, whs carried by a majority.

lo open the trail-, mentioned in lhe resolutions passed
this evening: als», the establishing a Light-ship on tbe

also, thc repeal ofthe Tonnage dues on all n,erel,iiiiiii« |
leaving New Westminster for the interior of the colon;;
also, the Mule t;,x lately imposed upon the ncwtmilsi' I

Mr.  Scott brought forward tbe following resolution,
and spoke nt considerable length on tbe dangers attending  the  present unsatisfactory method of making oot|
the North  Sand Head,  contending that tbe evidence i
the most competent surveyors and pilots went to provt I
thc absolute necessity ofn Light-shin. [
'• Resolved—That, we, tho residents of New WmKI
minster beg leave to submit to Ilis Excellency the ni-l
cessity of placing a Light-ship on the Sand Heads attti I
mouth of ihe Fraser, the want of which is so much ft»l
by our merchant flcot on account of the outside bnjl
being washed away. From the report of Captain Hi* I

Hudson's Bav Territory.—Public attention is again
directed to this interesting portion of British North
America, by thc publication of Captain Palliscr's report of the exploration made by him, at Ihe request ofthe
Colonial i iffice, of the country between thc lied River
nnd the Rocky Mountains, and between ihe northern
branch of the Sascatchawan River and the frontier of
thc United Slates. The Captain had to answer the
question, whether the Red Kiver settlement possesses
qualifications which would adapt it for an English
colony. Captain Pnlliser reports that winter last from
November to April; and that severe night frosts are
frequent even in June. Wheat would consequently be
a proci rious crop; but barley, oats, potatoes, and most
kinds of vegetables could bc grown in abundance, and
the summer, though short, being warm and fur ing.
fruits of all kinds ripen with great rapidity. But cattle
feeding would be the staple agricultural enterprise, the
grasses of a highly nutritious quality, being everywhere
met with ; crups of hemp, flnx, cud hops can also be
raised as in other countries in the same latitude. Capt.
Pallisser reports strongly in favor of comprehending
all the Sascatchawan district, as well as the Swan river
district, in the new colony. Red river district would
naturally be fir-t occupied, and as population increases,
the settlers wonld gradually proceed westward along
the banks of the Sascatchawan. Tin- Captain is de-
cidedlyof opinion that the Hudson's Bay Comp. cannot
provide a governmont that would meet the exigencies
of a growing colony. Ho also recommends that emigrant ."'should proceed via the United -States, the route
by Lake Superior being too tedious. Tlie whole territory from Red river to the .astern base of the Rocky
mountain* is favorable to railway oxteusior. dipt. Pnlliser has found two passes 11,rough these mountains both
practicable for horses. Of course he docs not regard
the question ofa road through the territory to the Pa-
cific ocean as one of immediate interest, and he add-
that the difficulty of direct common
will render the work of constnictiii
continent ns much one of Ai crii   ■.

Steel-plated Ships or War.—The Tim's snys the
Emperor Napoleon appears to have definitively adopted
an entirely new principle in the formation of a fleet.
A line of battle ships are to bc superseded, and their
place will be taken by heavy frigates, so protected by
steel or iron armor as to In- pnu ticnlly invulnerable.
The construction of steam hips proved half ruinous to
us, but iron would bc worse. The expense ola man-of-
war in Nelson's timo was about £1000 per gun; it i-
now about C2000, and at lhe rate nf outlay actually
sanctioned on our four iron-cased frigates it would be
£4000, We have bul just super....led our Bailing navy.
If we are now to supersede our woodon navy, and at
twice the recent chnrgc, what will be the aspect of our
estimates tor some years to come? But, if the necessity exists, it must bc encountered, be the cost what it
A Royal Prooresb in Spain.—A Idler from Madrid
speaks of ihe great preparations making for tbe journey of Queen Isabella—a journey which it was lately
reported bad been altogether abandoned, hut which has
cert,inly been curtailed in its extent. The suite of Her
Catholic Majesty reminds one uf the pomp of past centuries rather than of lbe uiio.tentntious progresses of
modern sovereigns. In addition tn the numeious royal
carriages, the ielter says ihat 15 diligences have been
contracted for to convey lhe court aud thc ministers,
and that more than 1000 horses nnd mules will be required for Ihe ordinary service :—' Tbis luxury contrasts
will, the simpli ily of Queen Victoria and the Emperor
nnd Empress ot the French, whose suite is but of 30
persons, while that of the Queen of Spain will comprise more than 150. without reckoning servants, footmen, kc. This immense train is traditional, Spain is
still thc classic laud of etiquette.'
Captain  Clay's  Bnr.rxn-LoAniNO  Canon.—The results   of the  trial  yesterday  of   captain  Clay's  rifled
breech-loading   ordnance  indicate a revolution in our
gunnery   practice,   notwithstanding  thc great and important improvements which  have been recently introduced.    For Ihe convenience of the experiment the gun
wns removed lo the south volunteer battery, where, after being placed in   position, ten  rounds were fired in
forty-nine seconds I    This far exceeds anything yet obtained, and astonished nil  present except the inventor,
who is sanguine of obtaining  thirty rounds   in  a minute.    At tbe period of the working, tho speed of loading the gun was  at  the. rate of 20 rounds in a minute.
The man  who  worked   thc  gun  never before fired a
breech-loaded,  and thnt may account for the non-accomplishment of the number of rounds anticipated by
captain Clay.     Mr. Mallet the inventor of thc monster
morter,  was  present,  and speaking of the  invention,
said it " was the prettiest thing he bad yet Been        Up
to the present time the greatest number of rounds  obtained   from   any  pic-ce of ordnance was from   Whit-
worth's   three-pounder    at   Soiithport,    when   threo
round. were fired in a minute.—Manchester Guardian.
Monarchy and REPrBUCAHUM.—We extract the following truthful delineation of monarchy and republicanism from ihe Loudon Dispatch.--The founders of the
lie earlv perceived tbe dependence of
ligence. Tbey saw that when a people
._w unto tbemtelves," they could only
■ onerous a trust by education and reflection. They felt that .->.
cessity ol administrative
that ii, proportion to the extent ol tbe l
(,y e^ery subject wasAis obligation to wield it with
fe:' ' ,'."', ,'. fe ..','. :,,:,i. Thev knew that ignorance and
avc themselves by discovering nnd
adopting i ■■■'' r, and that freedom tothe unworthy
nndinca' I • nly end in realising the beggar on
]i(,r-,'. .:. This kingdom of ours is, with alliu faults,
the freest in the world. We can say, bear, print, and
and publish whatever we like. We even boast that
there i? no tyranny of public opinion; that not only society in the aggregate can do what s'eemeth good in its
own eves, but ihat there is virtue enough in it to suffer
thc unlicensed expression ofthe thoughts of any individual; forbvarance and toleration enough in the whole
body of citizenship to he put up with and give unrestricted charter to theopinions ofthe private and single
dissentient, even when be resisted and defied the most
cherished prejudices of the million. That, indeed, is
the nice and delicate, although infinitely important,
distinction between our limited Moinrchy and that Republican dispensation with which it has been so often
compared. In tbe United Stales the rights of tbe private subject are completely merged in the intercstsol the
community, lie has no'rights as a private citizen.
All tbe priviliges ho possesses nro concessions by tho
whole, of his millionth .-bare ofthe common stock of
power. Lynch overrules law wherever law differs from
Lynch. li is not enough that a jury finds a man innocent; he must bc acquitted by public opinion, or certainly he wi 1 be sentenced. It is not even enough that
the citizen holds property bythemost certain legal title.
If the tenure be inconvenient io the majority, as *n the
caso of scigncuries of New York and Massachusetts,
the Stale Marshal will bc shot down in defending hiui
in possession, nnd it will be impossible to induce a junto pronounce a verdict against his assassins. The
most eternal truths, the best principles of virtue, must quality themselves to the taste ^ of
the many headed monster. You must say nothing
against slavery, else you will be tabooed in the east, and
tarred and feathered in lhe south. You must say nothing against the United States or against Republicanism,
if vim would escape general proscription. Tbe individual i- nothing—society is all in all. Mankind are there
reduced to an uniform rank and file that merge- the full
private it, his regiment—that tolerates no idiosyncrncj
—that has no charity for what is congenial. Everyman is drilled out ut the awkward squad of peculiar
manner, into the discipline ofthe entire mass of society.
He is a cypher that has value and denomination only
when plnc'-il beside the units of society at large.
A Royal Hoax.—On Tuesday forenoon a gentleman drove to the door of the comfortable inn or
hotel, known as the Grant's Arms, in thc centre of the
open square which constitutes the village of Grnntown,
the cnpit.il of Strathspey lie obtained audience of the
landlady, Mrs. Class, and said be wished lo engage the
whole house that nighl for a newly married couple and
their suite. The worthy hostess demurred, as she
might thus exclude some of ber best customers: but the
applicant was very civil as well as urgent, and gave assurance that the party were "highly respectable."
There was no difference as to terms, and Mrs. Class was
told that she would be glad afterwards to know that she
had stretched a point to accommodate the parly. In
t es-e circumstances an arrangement was come to, and
t ,e occupants of the house at the time were p ilitely requested to board out for the night. The prin dpals ar-
r v "1 in tbe evening—, pparcntiy quiet peop,e, satisfied
with everything and everybody about them, In a newly
married couple such equanimity might nave been expected, but Ibis part of the affair was evidently a hoax,
nnd had only the effect of raising conjectures as lo who
the party might be, but on ibis point all the attendants
were dumb. Next morning al ten o'clock the carriages
were at the door, and the strangers took their seats.
All being ready to start, Mrs. Glass was called for. and
Lord Churchill complimented her on thc cleanliness
and order of her establishment. The strangers, be
s..id. bad been very comfortable, and the lady said she
bud never slept more soundly in her lilc. I may now
tell you, said his lordship, as the principal carriage
drove away, that you have been entertaining ner most
Grin ion- Majesty the Qu en and the Prince Consort.
They do not wish this to bc known, however, unli.
about ten minute-after th •.. hid 1-ft. The royal party-
then drove towards Castle Grant, thc residence of lhc
Earl of Seafield, who, however, is at present at Balmn-
ea.in. in Glen Urquhart. They couid not have done
more thnn drive round the park, as I he carriages passed
back through Grantown and look the road lo T, m n-
toul, before the people recovered from their surprise it
hearing by whom they had been visited. The universal
regret here, sny.- our respected correspondent at (Iran-
town, -who sends us this piece of news, is that thesccret
w,i3 so well kept. Had ive got the slightest inkling ol
the honor done us, Her Majesty hnd not left Srantown
without hearing Strathspey voices bidding God bless
her. The 4th and 5th Sept. are be act-forth red day*3 in

Messrs. A. 15, & P. Bands, New York: Gentlemen,—In the
spring „f IS.'3, while on our way from Iniiiana to Ibis place, osr
eldest boy was seized with a swelling and severe pains In the
legs, which day bv day k,-_w worse, until his legs contracted,
tnd licranie so painful that he could not walk, and we had M
cam- him about like an infant- We reached Albany on tlie ,,<l
of October, completely won, out by fatigue. By ih,s tune ho
was rei|„c>'d to a perfect skeleton. Here we wore enabled o
consult a physician (Dr. Hill), who him.Hiy confessed lie could
not cure him, although be could give him medicine, that would
relieve tho pain. In this exigency something must be done, or
death was Inevitable Being recommended to try your Bnrsa-
parllla, I procured a botlle. After taking some, lie appeared
worse: but persevering with it, I obtained a second buttle,
which seemed to grapple with tho disease, and caused a marker'.
'•..movement: the swelling and pain in Ihe legs wero reduced,
i,,.-.m„.".o improved, and nla color began to return. Thus en-
