I have just sr-.-n tba inarch past of a
ili-lacliini'iit of the army of crime—a
lialtalion at least —anil 1 oonf_M that
it formed one of those sinister sights
which recur to tin, mind long afler
they un* over. Armrd with tlio
necessary autlioity, and under the
.uidaiiinr of M. Solar! I recently vis
ited ibe tona ict depot of Sant-Martain
de-Be, The depot is situated at the
northern extremity of the island, fiv
minutes walk from the litll- town of
Saint. Mar in. It is flanked l.y barracks, surrounded hy earthworks and
masonry, forming part if n defensive
sys em of considerable strength, and
'■'insists of a collection of building,
rather old, but in g od r*pair. The
governor, on the advice of the depart
mental administration, has found ii
necessary to inuke an important change
in the arrangements of the prison iii
order lo lodge the"reoidlvistes,"soas to
keep tie n apart from the convicts. The
depot pri'seirs, therefoie, two aspects
I'.vn disciplines, tavo refectories, two
Vft'ds, anil tavo dilli-reiit religious services. The "recidivistes" now occupy
the Lest quarters, while the convic s
have been reduced to change theirs for
another and less convenient portion of
the building, and their excellent goa-
ernor, in consequence of this, sufl'er-
quite as much as they do. A very
mr ■ type of man is M. So ari, and one
interes'ing io study, He possesses in
a high degree a love for a profession
avhich can scarcely be called an amusing
one. Hut In.1 is a philosopher, and a
tnorouglily kindhearted one too. So
that, avith ihe laav iu his own hands,
the regulations ever before his eyes,
and power to deal sternly with the con
victs entrusted for a few weeks to his
care, be nevertheless shows the unhappy wretches a compassion that has
won Iheir r.gard. Living in the midst
of robbers and murderers, he knnavu
what, human nature is capable of after
the shock of the assizes, verdict, and
conviction, and he ameliorates to the
best of his ability the lot of his caged
jailbirds. With regard to criminalshe
formed an opinion : it is this. Murderers condemned for life for un act
committed in a moment of sanguinary
madness are better men than the
' recidivistes" counting ten short con-
aictions for minor rogueries. The for
mer may improve in time, the latter
never will. M. Solari. therefore, is
not enthusiastic avith regard to the 345
boarders avhoiu the State has sent him,
but he hus none the less made every
arrangement to treat theni in accordance wiih the law —that is to say,
avith -pore ceremony than is meted out
to convicts. Thus, it is a rule for convicts to be shaved once a week, whilst
rhr-"recidivistes" are abowed In wear
their hair and beards Tliey cannot
smoke, but they have lhe right of buy-
lug IB grammes of tobacco a  day   for
chewing, and 10 grammes of snuff. The
canteen provides ihen) with tobacco,and
unkiiin-picking »itli the fund-. In the
vard ihey are allowed to speak in a low
voice, whicli is forbidden to the a'on-
aicts. The 'recidivisms" occupy live
rn' six apartments on ihe second   story,
where   they appear tu ba somewhat

' recidivistes" occupy live or six apartments on lhe s.coiid story. « here ihey
appear to somewhat piled up .me above

watching them When the governor
enters a room each one, at the warder's
order, uncovers his head, whilst the
work is not interrupted but continued
in deep silence. I stare these scamps
full in the face, but they do not lower
their eyes readily before a visitor
Some seem shy, others surly, evidently
avoiadering "What the deuce thisfellow
wan s pokng his nose here for!" And
whilst I am looking nt their faces, old
nr young, and see their cunning eyes,
squalid beards, sallow cheeks, dirty
and ragged clothes, 1 feel inclined lo
break the silence fitting such sorts of
visits, and exclaim : "Don't be as-

This is not the place to speak of the
convicts which I visited, yet tr.cie is
one observation I shoal I like to make.
Out of the 140 of them at present im
prisoned on the Lie de Re very few
have reached the age of twenty five.
Most of ihem are eighteen, nineteen,
or twenty, A criminal named Bertbon
is suffering the aevprest penally. Of
him the prison book says: "Age six

"Peninsular War," devotee but some
eight or nine lines to an account of the
most remarkable recorded incident of
this nature, in rhich Robert Oimnford's
celei'iatr-d Light Diviaion -consisting
of ihnsr. three distinguised regiments,
the 43rd, the BSnd, and the BStn wen-
seized and put to tight by au attack of
fear so sudden and causeless that the
historian makes no attempt whatever
to ascribe a reason for it "The Light
Division," he wrin-s, "encamped in a
pineavood, where happened one of those
extraordinary panics attributed iu
ancient limes to the influence ofa god,
No enemy was near, no alarm given,
when suddenly the troops, as if seized
with a frenzy, started from sleep and
disappeared in every direction; nor
was there any possibility of allaying
this strange tenor, until some persons
called out that the enemy's cavalry
were amongst tliein, when the soldiers
mechanically ran together, anil the
illusion was dissipated." It seems odd
'hat so dilluse a ivitcr should have
seen fit to say so little of so e.urunr
dinary an occurrence, more especially
when we remember that ihis same
Light Division was the flower of the
British army in the Peninsula, and that
he writes of it not many pages before
as "composed of three regiments
singularly filled foi difficult service.
Long nnd carefully disciplined by Sir
John Moore, they enine to theli'dd with
such a knowledge of arms, that six
years of warfare could not detect a tlaav
iu their system, nor were they ever
overmatched iu courage and skill." The
public has beeu made acquainted  avith
il goodly number of panics during the
Inst few years, the ni'litary iinnals of
which have been so replete with the
warlike op-rations of the Britisli arms.
Many of us have thrown up our hands
and signed over the decadence of the
pristine virtue of our soldiers, or
prophesied darkly the downfall of the
avhole Britisli race. The reason why
the world nowadays is more familiar
with many of the short-comings and
failings of our troops is not very difficult to Iind. As, before Agamemnon,
lived iiinnv brave men whose virtues
have not been hnndeil down, so, too.
perhaps, many little indiscietions on
ihe part of the soldiers of Marlborough
and V, ellingtnn have passed into
oblivion   through  aa'ant of  a   "special
war correspondent." In spin, of press
censorship ou the part of the military
officers, sooner or later these lynxeyed
gentlemen, being iu thn midst of the
fighting men, have seen nnd recorded
in the columns of the daily press very
many   incidents,   the   seriousness   of
which has not been lessened ill the idling. Amongst soldiers themselves, a
natural pride wuuld make them
reticent In inch matters ; aim I'esprit tie
corps has probably caused more than
know of to be buried in the boeomi
ofthe   members   of   some   particular
irps     This   reminds us ul   ran    uiui

avhich avas    coiiiinuiiiented to W*,   year
after ite   occurrence,   by nn   ofloer  il

which    even    then   he seemed   lo  feel
hardly   justified in   betraying,   though
the regiment had changed its title, and
scarcely one   of the members in   it at
the time   still remained.    Suffice it to
say that   the regiment    was a   distin
guislud infantry one,  composed almost
entirely of   veterans,   who   had added
lustre to their   former   glories   by the
courage and bravery   with whicli they
had   behaved   throughout   the trying
times of the   Indian   Mutiny.    It  avas
shortly after this terrible outbreak had
been   quelled   that   the   regiment   in
question was marching  from the scene
of some of the bloodiest   outrages  tos
neav station in a   comparatively   undis
turbed portion of India.    Then, as now
marches in that country  were   usually:
carried out   at night,    the sun    in the
hot season   rendering exposure   to   its
influence more or less   unsafe to Europeans.    They   had almost  reached the
spot where   they were to   halt for the
night—whicli,   by the-bye, was   an exceptionally dark  one—in  fact, tho ad
vance party had already   arrived, avhen
suddenly   some sort of commotion and
press nf men from the rear avas noticed
by the   officers       Before   they   could
divine the cause the confusion increased
and the regiment, without paying any
heed to the   commands of the   officers,
broke its ranks, and fled  precipitately
into the jungle on either side of the
road.    As usual, the officers, and even
the senior   non-commissioned   officers,
had not shared the general terror,  and
some few ofthe private, had r.i Hit
called u|K,u their comrade* to reman,
steady—but all to no avail Tina

I bat they did nor return till the follow

by the   colonel   into   the case . but no
one was ei'cr   made responsible  as the
originator;pad the regiment   mutually
agreed to keep the  whole   affair a profound secret.    So well    did they do m,
that it never leaked out till years after
wards, when time hail blunted thn stinL.
nf   publicity     In   South   Africa   the
di-aster   of   la.iidlhwaiia     gave     the
soldiers' iierv-s a severe shaking, uml it
often    happened that    false    alarms nl
night led u, tin- musing of whole camps
and aiiuietiines even to a   imkieai dis
clung.-   of   firearms.     In    some    cases
friendly natives or even comrades were
tak-n by the excited   imagination of a
sentry for enemies ; in others, unoffending cattle, even a  bush or a shrub,    became the innocent   cause of a fusilade
sufficient to have dealt widespread  rh-
sti actum to a host of Zulus.     An  odd
incident,   illustratiae of   the slightuess
of the cause   -or even,   perhaps, of the
absence of any cause at all—that gives
rise to a panic, occurred on the night or*
Tel-el-Keblr, amidst a small   corner of
the force that was   bivouacking on the
battle Held     Tne narrator had crawled
into a marquee   in which,   with   other
commissariat stores, were the rum cask-
froin   which the   troops  had   received
their liquor   ration  after    the fatigues
and excitement of the day's   fight and
previous    night march.     Beside,   one
or two commissariat issuers in   charge
of the stores, several   "odds and   ends"
nf other corps had found their way into
the marquee, preferring to res'    under
its shelter amidst the casks and biscuit
boxes, then under   the open   ska- wiih
the sand for a bed.    Suddenly,    in the
middle of the night avhen ail were sleeping, a noise and   commotion    began in
the bivouac   outside.     Before   the inhabitants of the tent  were  sufficiently
awake to understand its cause, the curtains were thrust aside by a red-coated
snldier, avho shouied   to us to   get Up:
'"The Arabs arc iu the camp -they are
upon   us !"     Then   he   disappeared as
rapidly   as he    had   eonie.      Everyone
sprang to   his arms,   and   probably ex
pciieiiei'd that especially uncomfortable
sensation that    is caused   by a   vague
feeling of an unseen though imminent
danger against   avhich one  is   ignorant
how   to   guard.     Outside,   everyone
around was   aroused   and   up, eagerly
striving to discover from what quarter
attack was  to be expected.    Nothing.
however,    more    unpleusant   occurred
than the advent of a staff-officer taking
the cause ofthe   confusion.    Probably
the truth never did reach headquarters
-afterwards,   however, a report gained
ground—no other or lietter reason was
ever forthcoming—that the alarm arose
fiom the screams of a sleeping   soldn-i
who,    overwrought     perhaps   by   the
horrors of the day,    had been   fighting
his battles over  again  in his   dreams
It is perhaps as well  that   all oases ol
panic should be brought    forward  ami
iui'estiguted.  Hushing them up may be
satisfactory to those   who feel that the
credit and reputation of  their peculiar
regiment or corps   are   at stake ;    bul.

how    detrimental     they   are    to   the
morale oi   an army     A   recognition of
this   fact    must  convince   us   of   the
necessity t at exists   for neglecting no
step that   may tend  io minimise their
occurrence, or, if    Ihey must   occur, lo
most efficaciously and speedily counter
act their   effects.    Long  since, bailors
learnt   by   experience    that   real    or
imagined outbreaks of tire on shipboard
were too apt   to cause  panic    and eon
fusion, and   thereby   increase   tenfold
the horrors of  the situation.    To pro
vide against this,  the tire alarm   is frequently sounded,   avith  a  view  to accustoming the crew  to lake up rapidly
their allotted posts, avhen   fire actually j

Russian sa-i mines  have always found I
ready market, and German investors
are now loaded down with them. It is
said that the conciliatory tone assumed
by Bismarck in the early stage* of the
Bulgaria imbroglio was owing to the
pressure brought upon him by German
holders of Russian stink*. We now
observe that this influence has in a
great measure l"*i it* weight on the
German Chancellor, since die official
organ warns the German people against
purchasing Russian stocks, and in sup-
pi nt ol this caution, publishes a lull statement of the present position of the Russian finances, which, 10 say lhe least, is
of such n damaging character that few in-
vestors will be found lor Russian securities on the European stock markets,
ll avas also staled thai lhe Russian
minister of Finance had been negotiating a considerable loan with some German bankers, but the conditions were
so stringent lhat the loan avas withdrawn.     Most   people   avould   come lo
the conclusion that with a bankrupt exchequer, war avould be ui impossibility;
1 tut that is noi so, particularly avith a
despotism like that of Russia. For
many years, in spite of avars, heavy imposts and other drawbacks, the Russian
people have been growing rich, and in
case of war, the people's wealth would
be ruthlessly lorn from theni lo the last
dollar. But if the war was for the acquirement of Constantinople, very little
force ivtuild lie required to extract the
necessary funds. Prance is in lhe same
predicament Although the Government Iind the greatest difficulty in
meeting ordinary expenses, In m its improvidence in expenditure, the nation is
rich, and in case of a popular war
avould furnish all the requisite cash.
It must be clearly evident that Bismarck
does not believe in lhe inability of
either Russia or France, to enter upon
a great war for want of funds, although
he has decided that no more German
money shall be given to Russia to help
her. lie seems to have made up his
mind thai Russia avould like to have
secured Constantinople without interference on his part, but finding thai ini-
praiticable, the two allies France and
Russia have decided on a joint attack
on Germany ; France to repay the debt
created by Sedan, and Russia to remove
n formidable obstacle lo future European conquests. Under these circum-
siaiuis Germany is girding up her
loins ; an increase has been despatched
tO lhe army ot observation in Alsace
and I Amine, and the fortresses and
camps on the Russian frontier, have
bean strengthened. The French are
moving troops towards the Rhine avhich
they call COrpi Ol evolution, and Russia

going to he hurried to a close, and probably feav rebels avill remain to tell the
tale of hoav it avas done. One thing is
undoubted the treacherous murders
they have committed upon British officers and soldiers, is not likely to make
the latter very regardful of the lives of
Burmese dacoits. Their annihilation
would bring peace and prosperity to
Burmah. The army employed for
their complete subjugation will number
aliout seventy thousand men. Nothing
of an important character in the shape
of news, has arrived from Afghanistan,
so that it may be concluded that the rebellion is confined to the Ghilsais.

avill afford  employment to  many thousands  of |)cople  avhen  the  mines are
worked.   Another libel on the country
bas been the  absurd and untrue assertion   in   vogue   amongst   adventurers
" down on their luck,"   from the neighboring republic,  that we  have no land
except   in    patches   here    and   therej
amongst  the  mountains,   and  that ave
shall always be dependent on countries
outside of our limits, for our supply of
food.    The fact is, that at this moment
numbers of farmers from various parts
of the United States are quietly taking
up farms in this   Province, and they all
admit that the land and the climate arc-
far su|)erior to those they have left behind.    Every year adds to our knoav-
lcdge of lands ol  the most productive
character, opened up by strangers from
abroad,  who are not like our own people, content to enjoy the advantages ol
Ihe homesteads  they have   made,   and
leave exploration to those in search of
new   homes.      Our   Province,   which
covers a greater extent than any other
two  provinces  in  the   Dominion,   has
hitherto only  been  searched   lor   the I
precious  metals,  and these are  found,
as    ave    have   previously   mentioned,
amongst  the  mountains ;   hence,   the
lands fit for cultivation  have been neglected.     Such oversight is not likely lo
be   long  continued.     The railway avill
continue to  bring in   large numbers of
settlers who will do more  to refute the
"sea of mountains " theory than all the
stupid  pamphlets issued under the impression or pretencej of being " guides
to  immigrants,"  which  they  are not.
The railway avhich  noav  runs through
the most uncultivable part of the country - the Canadian Pacific Railway    is
only   the   avant courier   and avill  form
the commencement ofa system that will
not  only open up the  agricultural portion of our Province,   but   avill be  the
most inqiortant aid in the development
of our mining wealth.   There are several
new railways for avhich charters avill be
applied   at  the   next  session   of our
local 1'arliament, and it is very important that every encouragement should be
extended to the neav companies consistent   with   prudence.     Charters should
not be  granted  to  companies without
sufficient  capital to carry out  the proposed schemes, because they might deter richer  cori*or..tions  from undertaking the work, and so retard the opening
up of the country.    Like all neav coun
tries in every pari of ihe world, British
Columbia is  infested   by a class of adventurers, who apply for land and charters   with the sole  object ol making a
profit  by the  sale of the privileges obtained.    Such bogus enterprises are .1
real   misfortune for  any country,   and
are  generally the  result ol" a corrupt
government.     The most stringent conditions as to completion and working,
should be inserted in any charter granted, and trr.nsfer or sale should be prohibited.    The nonsence  about  letting
anyone have the lands, timber or minerals who promises to develop them, must
be apparent; if they are to be hawked
about all over the world, we had better
do that ourselves.    The public property
is too valuable to be lightly alienated,
as in that way,   we lose the control and
with it, the benefit  to our  own people,
and the consequent   revenue.    A stop
must be put to the facility afforded to a
corrupt  administration of giving away
or appropriating  for personal profit, of
the  lands,  timber, and minerals.    At
this moment there is a race on the part
of land-grabbers and  timber monopolists, for the public  property,  and this
must ■ be put a stop to,  before the best
part of our resources  is locked up, to
be turned  to account by men who avill
be made millionaires  at the expense of
the commonwealth.    The future of this
Province is too certain, to admit of our
natural wealth  being made  over to a
few, and  those not the most deserving
among our citizens    There  is no ne-

In older to render papet as tough as wood
or leather, a plan has been devised which, it
is said, effectually accomplishes that purpose
namely, by combining chloride of zinc with
tin- pulp in the course of manufacture. It
has bean found that the greater the degree
of concentration of thu zinc solution the
greater will be the toughness of the paper,
ami that it is thus serviceable for making
boxes, eomhs, fie.
Hy a new process ol toughening wood, it
is claimed that the effect produced upon
whitevvood ia such that a cold chiaol is re*
quired in order to split this result being
accompanied by a -special method of steam
iug tin- timber and submit ting it to end pressure. By this meant the cells and fibres arc
compressed into one compact mass, aud
some <if the timber, commonly considered
unlit for use iu such work as carriage build
ing, for example, can b» made valuable by
this means a* .1 substitute for ash, hickory,
Ac. This method is applicable, of course,
only to wood in comparatively small quantities nr sizes.
A useful discovery is announced whereby the faded ink on old parchments may be
so restored as to render the writing perfectly
ible. The process consists in moistening
the paper with water and passing over the
lines of writing a brush, w Inch has been wet
in a solution of sulphide of ammonia. The
writing will immediately appear quite dark
iu color, and this color, iu the case of parchment, it will preserve. On paper, however,
the color gradually fades again, though it
may be restored at pleasure hy the application of tho sulphide. The explanation of
tin-chemical action of this substance is very
simple ; the iron which enters into the com-
position "t the ink is transformed by reaction
into the black sulphide.

lion turner, entered thu cage of the lion
Brutus in tho absence of the keeper, accompanied by a man named Greniei. No sooner
had they entered than the lion sprang upon
Grenier. Mme. Soulet ran to his assistance,
when the brute turned uoon her. A life*
and-death struggle ensued between the lion
aud tho attendant until another man attacked tho brute with a pitchfork nnd drove
him off*. The three persons attacked are all
badly injured.
John L. Sullivan happened to bo standing
on the corner of Kearny and Geary streets
in San Francisco the other evening, when
two politicians came to blows, and a big
crowd assembled. John at once hurried
away to his hotel, and was iu very bad humor for the rest of the evening, and this is
what he is said to have suid to Pat Sheedy .
" Now, this if: a nico bloody row, ain't it ?
This thing will be telegraphed to the Kast
and everybody there  will  think  I've been
mixed  up in it.     D it, Sheedy, why
don't   you   keep   away   from   this fighting
crowd !"
A very cleverly nrranged contrivance has
lieen discovered in the woods near St. George,
New Brunswick, by means of which au old
and eccentric reaident named Tucker intended ending his existence. It bad been
noticed for several weeks that the old man
spent the greater portion of hia time in tbe
woods, and a party followed him. He
stopped beside au open grave, which was
found to have boon constructed for some
special purpose. Investigation showed
that a man could lie down in the box and
null down a hoard, when the grave would

for the purpose would cover the mound.

Admiral Aube of tlie French navy seems
to be a wide-awake and lively old salt. His
new gunboat has just beeu tried aud found
worthy, her speed being over nineteen miles
an hour. He proposes to build a great fleet
of these boats, each carrying a single gun of
the most powerful description. Half a
dozen of such boats, it is now believed,
would be more effective in a naval engagement than one large ironclad ship. A tirst-
clasB man-of-war of the modern type would,
it is thoaght, be aa powerless agaiimt a fleet
of aueh lively little gunboats as a bull against
a swarm of hornets. The GermanB are also
turuing their attention to smart gunboats of
pretty much the same kind, and possibly iu
the near future competitive examinations in
the tactics of this new marine cavalry may
form part of the programme of naval service
Kxtraordinary pleadings were made before
the High Court of Justice, reported at
Toronto recently in the case of Miss Loe
against a young man named Holmes. The
plaintiff ia an attractive girl of about 20 and
the daughter of well-to-do parents at Orilla,
a town north of Toronto. She accused the
young man of seduction. The defendant
admitted the offence, but pleaded that Miss
Lee'a mother had allowed her to read a
grossly obscene book, which had poisoned
her morals and made her more than a willing party to the deed. The criminal neglect
of the mother iu consenting to her daughter's
perusal of this book, the defendent pleaded,
made the woman a party to the crime.
Justioe Proudfoot refused to allow the bonk
to be read in court, but he has taken the
extraordinary pleadings nf the defendant
into consideration snd his judgment
awaited with interest.

Here is a good story that Lady BntSSSy,
the irrepressible, got in Constantinople *—
"We went downas fnr as the French bridge,
over which the contractor lost an Immense
sum of money in tbo following nmnn.-r :
The bridge was to have been finished by a
particular day, but the contractor found
that this would be impossible with Turkish
workmen unless he worked day and night.
This be obtained leave to do, and the nsocs
t- iry lights and torches were supplied at the
Sultan's sxpense. All went well for a time,
till thu unfortunate contractor was told that
he must open the bridge to let a ship from
the dockyard pass through some tune before
the bridge was finished. He said it was
utterly impossible, as he would have to pull
everything down, and it would take two
or three mouths to remove tho scaffolding
and pile driving machines. He went to the
Ministers of Marine and Finance. They
said: Tf the Sultan Bays it must be done
it must, or we loso our places, if not our
heads.' So the ship came out, at a cost of a
little over $100,000, und a delay of three
months iu tlie completion of the bridge, all
because the Sultan found hia small son crying iu the herein one day, tho child's grief
being that though he had been promised tu
he made an uduiir.il, he could not les bis
flag hoisted on his particular ship from the
nursery windows. So a large ironclad was
brought out from the dock yard and moored
in front of Dnlniabagtcheh to gratify his
infant mind, thus causing enormous lu convenience to the whole town for months, to
say nothing of the waste of money, of which
the Sultan paid very little, and for the loan
of which, I imagine hu cured still less "

What social agonies are often undergoue

hopeless blunderer! They know too well
hoav the former is appropriating as studied
insults all the airy remarks which the hliiu-
dorer is making, in happy ignorance of the
feelings of his listeners. For the blunderer
is the exnet opposite of the touchy person ;
the latter is too sensitive, the formtr too obtuse. The touchy one reads hidden meanings where none nre intended ; the bluuderer
is deaf and blind to the plainest hints.
