police take* great intertat in tlio*e who
buoltle cheerfully to their work, and
h»*lwayi employ* a fit urn, when be
can. The mounted, police, however,
hat iu limits, and cannot be regarded
ai a refuge for tbe destitute. I aironglv
advise any man wbo emigrates tothe
col niet to learn a trade, ur follow tome
manual labour. Clerks and school
teachers abound there ad nauseam, and
it is neither oise not honest to advise
one to add to the number."
"Yoo are quite right," answered the
steerage pas.cnger. "I suppose you
bave bid tome experience in tbe'mtt-
ter."
"The sad experience  of being   applied to by more than one gentleman'*
son to lend him a few shilling* wheie
with to pu>cbaie a ratal."
"Tbit must be very often the result
of their own impiudence," said Mr.
Smith.
"In tome cases, unfortunately; but
bid manageuien. and Un r.nce on the
part of people at home has a good deal
to do wiih it. If the lad is not to be
trusted with inr ,ney,why cannot parentaor
guardians send it out tr, some bank or
reap nsib'e peisonl This I am told,
bas been urged both publicty and privately. You know as well as I do that
banishment to the colonies lias been
a favourite remedy lor ne'er-do-weels
at home. Happily the colonies, will no
longer put up with our scape graces and
incapable*; but work cannot, al first, be
got for even tho most deserving."
Space ig now made for us, and we
clamber up the iron steps of tbe Clyde.
.._, Mr ftmith haa aoniething tp say to his
tbat it ia an injunction to take care of*
me. A Chinaman comes to tell me
that mv baggage is in the cabin No. 2.
which I am to occupy alone. This last
news is very pleasant, and I am comforted also when I see that N„. 2 is a
deck cabin, and that the berth is fur-
iii.hr d with white curtains. This will
enable me to keep the door open during
the night. Mr.. 0. and her children ar,'
to occupy No. 1, so llieic will lie just
conipanionshipeuough without too near
proximity.
The lunjiwt is over, and Senor   Hernandez and I sit on a   bench and watcli
Ihe lightning.    It has   become   quite a
familiar  object now; and we   both admired   thia    wonderful   feature of   the
nights on this coast   with deep interest.
We talk about Old   Spain, 1  rtniemher
and my good friend ia delighted to find
ihst I am the daughter of an ofilcer wbo
f ught for tbat country in the laat Peninsula war.    Now Mr.  Smith comes to
say good-bye, and  to ca,ry away   this
kindly   gentleman.      The   parting   is
quickly  over,   and   I   plunge into my
cabin and become "Soltera" once more.
Four o'clock a.m. in the correct hour for
rising at sea in Central America.   After
a night of great he t,   I had just fallen
asleep as the  vessel moved out of port;
ten minutes   afterwards  I   was roused
by  a succession of shrieks.   The cause
proved to be Mrs. (J.   correcting one of
her children  with a box-strap,   and «,■•
my intention of remaining in my  berth
was  completely   frustrated,   ss   far as
sleep was concerned for, to drown the
child's yells, the elder   sister had commenced a seiies of dismil   tunes on an
accordion.   Sam the   Chinaman,   who

■ "Very bad lot," remarked the Celestial, as he handed in my tea through
the window which looked out on to the
deck. "Ole gentleiuans other Bide, he
swear awful at the noise, an,) me don't
wonder. Ay I wait till captain come or,
deck, he soon see. Come again soon."
Tbis last promise was in reference to
bri' glng me more tet, I suppose; for
my friend bad shot a»ar like an arro.-
at the sound of a voice which waa inquiring f.r tbat "heathen Sam" in anything but dulcet tones.
There were few passengers present at
thn usual hour of breakfast, and of
these I alone represented womankind.
What were called gentlemen were anything but attractive specimens of thei.
Older. They all ate and drink in
silence, fed with 'heir knives, and ne.er
bad the civility to pass a single thing on
tbe table to me. They certainly knew
what wat the business of the tahltv
stewatd, and, I Conclude, did not care
to interfere with it. The captain, of
whom I had beard most favourable report waa ill, and confined to his cabin.

travel with a vengeance; but we cannot

these were no great acquisition.
A laughable mistake bad caoaed me
to be sick and qualmish on tbis day.
Mrs. C, who tieated me very civilly,
asked me to divide a bottle of congreta-
water with ber, both of us looking upon
It at a kind of effervescent, such as
lemonade or sodB-water.
Tbe Chiuamsn mho had brought it up
nf course made no explanation Mis.
C. divided the contents of the bottle into
two elssaes, and we both drank off a
good poition of the most abominable
riecocti' n I ever tasted, at a gulp.
Simultaneously, we put down the glasses
and glared at each other.
"What bave you given mcl" I at last
gasped out.
"It'spoisonl lam sure it's poison I"
shrieked Mrs. C. ' Sam—Chinese fool,

Sam was not within hail, bat one of

startled into opening  hia lipi.
'Why -you have not been drinking
this to quench your thir«t, have you!"
said tie, aa he took up a glass.
"Yes; we thought it was • cooling
drink."
The man could not restraih a laugh
— who could? This beverage waa a
strong medicine—diluted Epsom salts,
and something nvre-and ranked among
the ship's remedies for bi,i us attacks
and other ailmenis, We had taken
enough for four people, aud we naturally
muat expect to feel the effects of the
medicine severely.

brandy. We took ab ut a teaspoonftil
upiece,and wire not, after all. nude very
ill. Piis'sihlv llie dose was goal f r us;
I,lit we both, 1 think, will "squirm" to
the end of our lives at the mention of
congress-water.
The next (lay l.eine the "glorious
Fourth of July," some recognition of
the event must take place. Ealy in
the morning, the 0. girls' awful accoid-
ion was in full play, the purser following
suit upun another, till we were nearly
all wild with the noise; for the music
had been supplemented by a file of
crackers, and human yells were added to
these.
'Happily the captain, though an
American, did not appreciate this manner of celebrating the national glorification day. He wa. possessed of great
taste and refinement; and he would do
a thing well, or leave it alone; so these
rej icings were put an end lo, and a very
guod dinner was served in the saloon in
hon, ur of the day. Captain C. was a
leiuarkablv li.ui some and agreeable
man; and I always look back upon him
sh being my model American. Of
course theie are many such, but 1 have
not, hitherto, been fortunate enough to
meet them.

it, ma'am," continued the poor gentleman, "that a wretched Scotchman,
one of my own countrymen, actually
upheld the custom-house clerk, through
thick and thin, in the matter of an
overcharge which was made on my
baggage!"
I expressed tny regret to hear this,
but ventured the observation that perhaps the Scotchman thought that the
official was right.
"Nothing of the kind," replied my
friend with great energy, "he only
wanted to curry favour and stick to bis
berth. Fancy their having the audacity
to charge, me wharfage dues for that

Z., warming with his subject; "a few

The C. children became so unmanageable as the days went by, that I really
could not help feeling some compassion
for the oi ilhei. To keep these rioters
a little quiet, the officer, of the sbip supplied them wiih oranges, nuts, and
othei fruit, in'unlimited quantity. The
heaps of peels, skins, ai.d .ther debris nl

It was a great incident in our career
when we reached a snail port, the mine
of whieh is not in my journal, to see a
boat come ofTshxne, bringing some bales
and a heap of coeoa nut'. These last
were tbe special attraction, for nothing
quenches the tbirat more quickly than
tbe water which is contained in the
cocoa-nut before it turns to milk and

was exhausted; and ve were not only
thankful to see a new supply, but bugged

I bade him "good morning," and inquired after bis health. Mr. Z.'s fine
grey eyes lighted up as I addressed
him.

utter a short pause.
"Why not?" say I, catching at the
opportunity of securing a travelling

"Wait a ino:..ent," replied Mr. 'A.
He ruse and went into his cabin, returning .villi n mahogany case. He
opened this, nnd displayed reposing
therein two revolvers; one a large
weapon, the other some sizes smaller.
"Tbis is the jewellery I travel with,"
he continued; "but the smaller rc-

this, intending it for a wedding present to a girl in the interior; but the

I thanked him for his kindness, but
1 put it back, saying that 1 could never

"Oo you   think," he asked,   "that a

"No; what do you mean?"

Oassell, of London, has published a
very interesting description of the
Kootenay country, written by Mr.
liailey (Iroliinan. The nntural resources of that part of the Province are
well described. The essay is an illustration of the ministerial knavery that
gave the riehest portion of that electoral district to a syndicate of foreign
speculators.
The "bo',,n" in   Victoria is  only   a
—delusion.      When   the editor of the
"Colonist" has mi hour to spare be i:

,'Hi,'(• make gorillas at Yale and telegraphic despatches ut Ottawa. "Let
us think," are three words that convey
an idea to the mind; but they are play-
,,l but and replaced by "let us roar."
Any sort of nonsense is just as good as
common sense in Victoria.
Part of the lands lying between Port
.Moody and English Iiay is leased to
the Hastings Sawmill Co., and part is
in possession of the Government. It
is intended for pets; but the "Colonist"
says 'the Government is guarding the
interests ofthe country by withholding
this tract of land," and hints that "it
would bequestionablepolicy toselltown
sites or laud required for railway termini at one dollar an acre." Get all
you can from the unfortunate persons
who come here to settle, is the present
policy of our "paternal" government.
If an Ainsworth comes along he will
convince the four solons at Victoria
that it is Iheir interest to sell. How to
serve the Province? is not a question
that concerns any one of the four.
Thoy are true believers in the doctrine
that "he is a fortunate man who has a
district to sell."
The "Colonist" says, "The press of
Victoria have been unusually complimentary to the Bandmann, Beaudet
Oo." Yes, the sen ile press puffed the
great actorBandtiiairri. and then abused
him because another p:' son failed to
pay tho printers. Indeed, llie words

The Czar ol all tbe Russia* will be astonished to hear the wonderful secrets revealed bv this author, who is evidently

Tlie latest telegrams from Paris, declare! that French Statesmen believe Mc
rocco is a magnificent political pear,
quite ripe and fit for plucking. The
general impression in Kngland is that
France intends 10 annex Morocco. It
is a magnificent country larger than
France, and it contains a population of
six millions, the most ferocious and fanatical people on this planet. All kinds
of crime—adultery ulnars excepted —
are rife among the Moors and Berbers.
The wicked women of that country are
all sewn up in saokl and drowned. Trial by Jury was never heard ol. The
husbands are judges, jurors and enecii-
tioners. The Jews are the only respectable people in the country and they
wish to be annexed. But if Fran e a -
tempts to appropriate Morocco, she will
have a seven years war on band.

North Warwickshire died last week ;

by the disgraceful conduc ofthe Queen's
Own Royal Staffordshire Yeomanry.
The regiment was quartered in Lichfield,
and tbe men and officers gave themselves up to the most reckless insuboi-
dination and misconduo. At midnight
Ihey were all lying drunk in ihe gutters,

kill the drunken brutes He felt the
humiliation of his position, and died of
shame In the street.
The Lord Lieu enant of Ireland had
an enthusiastic recep ion in Belfast. The
Orangemen dislike him because he deprived Lord Rossmore,,an Orangeman,
of the Commission of the Peace; the
Nationalists dislike htm, and ye both
parties remembered that he represented
Her Majesty, and joined ing.ving him a
hearty welcome.
The firming interest all over the
United Kingdom is in a sad condition.
The price of Wheat is seven shillings a

Lord Randolph Churchhill said last
week at Aylesbury "I am no 'Jingo ;' I
do not believe the Empire must grow or
decay, or that its maintenance depends
on the sbirpness of our swords, but on a

that although his reputation as a writer does not rank very high in England,
and otherwise, he haa not secured a position much to bs.  envied there, he haa
not been more  successful   in  Canada
Surely, in gratitude, if he has  secured
any status among Canadians, he would
never think of repaying them by gross
insult.    To tell a Canadian that he puts
no pride in his country and that   ita
name awakens no enthusiastic response
in his breast, is to state what is simply
untrue.    He it careful to call Canada a
dependency because he thinks  that is
likely to annoy Canadians.     He says
nobody is willing to make any great
sacrifice for a  dependency, or passionately desires to link his name with its
glory.     This he  must have known to
be false;   there is not a true Canadian
living who is not proud of his country
and her achievements, which  aro  far

We cannot at this moment   remember
one single act entitling  them  to  tbe
thanks of but a very few of their own
touters and hangers-on.    They deceive
the mainland members by telling them
that tbe  graving dock  at  Esquimau
would ruin the provinoe instead of absolutely bringing money into it from
the Imperial  and Dominion  Governments.     And this fine ttory wu made
agreeable to them by  tbe promise that
the whole of the money received for tbe
dock would be applied to improvement*
on  the mainland alone.      W<v  knew
when the promise was made that t^t-se-f
uiinisters would never dare to spend it
in any such way.      Victoria influence
is altogether too powerful.     But,  deception   is the   stock-in-trade of  the
honest John government;  in  order to
deceive the mainlanders and please the
Inlanders, these huckstering ministers
have taxed the mainland;  first, by a
ridiculous valuation of lands  at Port
Moody, and an increase of price of the
public lands on the mainland: thus we

not look to it (Canada) for the highest
honors or social position for the highest
grade.    This   statement   he   must be
well aware is a perversion of the truth'.
It would be hard to find a  parallel to
Canada, taking into consideration her
political age, for distinguished   statesmen, and we   have yet   to  learn   that
Canadians ever think of finding either
1 '' J political or social distinction elsewhere.
We have givun examples enough of this
man's writing to show that he is purposely untruthful, evidently, with  the
design of misleading Englishmen with
the idea that Canadians would be glad
to iibiiiiiluiii their own country, and fly
to England in order  to find patriotism
and distinction.    We are all proud of
our relationship  to   England   and her

Tbe peor-y, 0f this province are living
laradise in respect to  their
timber la    1.   There seems to be some

' id that the more rapidly we
Never WM rror more fatal. The fact
il that v, ave very little timber, and
the dnv not far distant when the
price of lumber will bo something en-
appeal, | orinous It must be remembered that
our population using lumber for the
ordinary industrial purposes, does not
exceed (Indians included) 60,000. In
the course of a very few years we shall
have a population of a million. All the
timber wn havo is confined to a narrow
strip along the sea-coast, and that is
being rapidly consumed between the
iliniviih its glory. I sawmills preparing it for export and
the forest lires. There can be little
doubt but that the busy population
soon to spread over this province
will bitterly curse the carelessness and
reckless extravagance of the people of
tho present day. Tho local government
appears to be seized with some inexplicable mania impelling them to get
rid of nur timber lands as quickly as
possible, and for the most part they
give them away to foreigners. They
gave away 750,000 acres of magnificent
timber lands by tho Kootenay bill, and
they gavo —on the pretense of making
a road which will nevor be completed,
aud if It is, it will never bo of any use
—60,000 acre* to another foreigner
connected witli tlie promoters of the
Kootenay bill, and they have just sold
16,000 aores to two other foreigners
from the Sound, we are told. They gave
to one of themselves, 35,000 acres comprising the best timber on tho Shuswap
Lake, and tho grants of timber leases
and the sales of timber lands since the
present quartette held the reins of government, would require a volume to
descrilie. One of tho first duties of
members when the House meets, roust
be for a return of all lands sold or
granted on any pretext whatever, with
the names and domiciles of the grantees.
When this return is furnished, we shall
havo a glorious illustration of the advantages of responsible government,
which really means the absence of all
responsibility. No one can be surprised at the political mountebanks who
agitated so successfully for responsible
government. To. us it appears like
nothing but a very common-plaen machine for corruption. If we had ordinarily honest, intelligent men, with even
an occasional clever man amongst them,
we might put up with our mis-named
government, but when they ore all
humbugs, and when their term of
power is only marked by the degrees of
their respective alienations of the pub
lie domain, the affair becomes monotonous and disgusting. What, for instance,
1 have tbe honest John government ever
Political am bitionloes not look to it for

substitute, is bey id the mental range
of, the great mass af thu people.     The
effect i*. inevitabl felt, not only in the
tone of public lift but iu the character
of general asp!rat n. The very productions of a depend icy   are  apt  to be
rated low by its 0111 people. 1 laborious
attempts have heel mode to give Canada a national  liynii,  but a national
hymn can come oily from the heart of
a nation.    The resjless craving for the
notice and patroiuge of England.whieh
some Englishmen jluiik so gratifying,
arises in truth parjly from   a  lack   of
English self relianii and  self-respect."
We can hardly imagine a  more   gross
or gratuitous insjlt iiiti' ted upon Canadians, who neithe, know nor care anything aliout him, aid who do not want
his advice or suggestions.    Thai, however, is perfectly cljar to Mr. Goldwin
Smith, who cares rpthing about Canadians, but who wojlrl be greatly pleased to see them comilit some great folly
that would endangel the present feeble
political connoetioniwith the old country.    We are at a Ins to understand
the motives which topei1, Mr. Smith to
exert himself so unceasingly to divide
the colonies from th^ mother country.
His enjoyment of thi  universal name
of Smith in nowise iidiuates his country.     He may lie a Fenian flying false
colors, or, he mny be of the ultra radical type, and believes that colonies are
only a drag and a source of loss to the
mother country.      H(> may  be one of
those vain, conceited icings who conceive themselves to be injured by the
country  of  his  birth, because he has
not   been   mode prime minister.    He
evidently  does not enjoy  those most
creditable    and delightful   of   human
feelings — contentment and  brotherly
love. Apparently nothing would please
him   better  than   setting   the whole
world by the cars —particularly Canada
dence shown by honest John in the dis
posal of the money squeezed out of us
mainlanders, is exquisitely droll.    He
makes a road costing $15,000 from this
city to Granville which  will never  be
worth one cent to this  city.     By-the-
way, when   this   road   is   completed,
which may be a long time yet, it will
be perfectly worthless without a bridge
over False Creek.    The present  one is
quite unsafe, and to  attempt to patch
it or strengthen it, as  it  is  proposed,
would  be  simply a   waste  of public
money.      A new bridge must be built,
and that will cost from $5,000 to $10,-
000. Thus on the road to his own land
and also to purchase  a few  votes at
Granville, honest John will ultimately
throw away about $25 000 of the people's money.    But even this is not done
yet.    Some simpletons who don't know
anything about the country or the ring
that desire to get unloaded from the
lands at Coal Harbor and English Bay,
have been absolutely induced  to buy
these   lands  on  speculation,   so  that
when honest John gets from under, he
may find that some difficulty stands in
the way of finishing this Granville rood
or at least constructing thj bridge. He
is buying the votes up  about  Langley
and Mud Bay, by  constructing  roads
over there.     We hope that there will
be enough of decently honest men  in
fchr^^rTetnrn'tiT an Tn« money*—expended and the roads made or-repoired.
We are always glad to hear of the government constructing main roods in the
country, but this thing of niaki ig crossroads with the public money—in municipalities—to catch votes, is rather too
n uch of a good thing.    There are some
roads, where there are not yet municipalities, very badly needed, but wc fear
the number of votes to  lie Becured by
doing simply what they aro entitled to,
will not be a sufficient inducement; they
must look for fair ploy  from  another
government

from the **nd ot the North road to the wharf
at Port Moody, where a connection  will  I.--

the government, a.ded by private subscriptions, Thia will prove a great boom to tne
terminal city, as a complete th-iroighfare

Tut North Akm.—This beautiful sheet
of water is destined at no distant day to become a favorite reacirt f r t-ouriats. It is
easy of access, alwaya calm, and the scenery
is sublime, The fresh water likes in the
vicinity of tbe Ann abound in trout, and
de'-p-sea H-diing gives abundant sport. Aluiig
on both sides ofthe Arm are some rare bit*, of
mountttiii scenery.andthektrefni whiclifonus

of foaming cataracts and whirling eddies,
dashing through a gor^e cut iu the solid
rock, snd worth going miles to se*-. There
are but few sett It ru along the Ann, aud the
area of arable land is limited, but the sup*
ply of timber is almoet illimitable. Hand
logging is carried on to some extent, the
ateep banks «n either side offering special fa-
eilit.i--s for the profjfccation of this industry.

Wondrb ir it'h TRPfl'—At a   meeting of
settlers held at Mapli
the Provincial Secretary, speaking of lands
in tho Railway Belt in B. (1, said, thftt after
a great deal of negotiation he was glad to
stat-- that an order-in -council had been passed
at Ottawa last week, authorizing Mr. Trutch
to administer these lands, and he hoped
there would now be no more delay. On motion of Mr. Webster, seconded by Mr. Harris, a hearty and unanimous vote of thanks
was given to the provincial secretary, the
entire audience rising aud cheering lustily.
The meeting adjourned at 7 o'clock, the people generally expressing great satisfaction
with what had taken place.
Picnic at Rocky Point.— On Wednesday
There has been much talk during the jia.it
ten days, about the removal o Ithe terminus
from Port Moody to Coal Harbor, and large
tracts of land are said to have changed hands
there at handsome figures. We have found
it impossible to trace out the origin of these
rumors, and it in extremely doubtful if they
have any foundation in fact. There has
been no movement made, either by the Gov-
.. eminent or the Syndicate, to carry the ter-
afternoon a very Social picnic was held at minus past Port Moody, and men who would

'ing of
Lovinjn, July 2.—Miss Mailer, a member
of the London School B*>ard for the i*m-
betii district, is the first woman in Kng and
to pose as a martyr in the cauee of woman
suffrage. She bas undertaken, in her own
penwn. to prove her devotion to the principle, "No taxation without representation."
Mils M uller is a leader of the woman stiffra
gists, snd was one of the first to propoee,
during the pendency of Mr. Woodall's
■iiiH.n'lniei.t to the Franchise bill, tliat women throughout the kiugdom should form
hoc.*ties to resist the payment of taxes until
the franchise should bs extended to women
householders. When Mr. Woodall's amendment was so overwhelmingly defeated iu the
House of Commons the ardor of tbe ladies
perceptibly cooled, and but little has lately
neeu heard of the proposed tax resistance societies ami 4BWW T>i...i m™ Muller, however, never m avered, and when th* *•»•.** ^.j.
lectOI made his rounds tbll year sto- absolutely refused to pay a farthing for taxes upon her house. This is situated in the fosh-
jonabli precincts of Cadogan square. The
collector argued and implored in vain, and
filially distrained a portion of the furniture
in satisfaction of the levy. To-day was set
for the execution of the writ, and Miss Muller, far from relenting to ISVS her property,
publicly advertised the date ofthe seizure,
and iuwted the women of Kngland to come
and witness the disgraceful spectacle of a
woman being robbed by the minions of the
law, because she dared to ask for a voice in
the disposition of her taxes. The invitation
was accepted by hundreds of well-dressed
but excited and indignant women, who
crowded into I 'adngan sqtUM and nearly
Diobbod tlie l-aiiirf-j while they were removing the liri'.s and penatc-s from tlie Muller
residence. An indignation meeting was afterward held in Mis* Midler's drawing
rooms, and many bitter ami vehement de
nunciations of the tyranny and injustice of
the law wen? indulged in.
Miss Muller was thi* evening visited by a
news correspondent, and was found to be full
of fight and determination to continue in
her resistance. She is a small and slender,
but sinewy woman of about 45, and gives
'ii- tbe Impression of a veritable volcano of
temper and pluck. She sadly bewailed the
seizure of her favorite belongings, and said
that the wretches had purposely picked out
those articles which were most cherished holier on account of their associations and overlooked others of greater value. "But,''
■he added, "they did not collect the rates,
and they never will, if they rob me of every
stick of my furniture and pull the doors and
windows out of my bouse. 1 shall continue
this tight if I am the oidy woman 1* ft in
Kngland to do so ; but I hope and believe
that thousands of English women will be
found brave enough to follow niy example."

The democratic political booms are still

Silver City.—Saya a corretpondent writing from Silver City in the Rockies, to the
Edmonton Bulletin: "Silver oity is very
dull and almost a thing of the pott, there
being «t present about 150 houses and only
twenty men left, the balance of the population having left for British Columbia. The
mine* have not turned out as well as expected. No stamp mills have been brought in
yet. Of the three mining claim* at Silver
city, tho Healey, Queen of the hills and
Homestakc, the former only is working but
work will be resumed nn the Queen of the
hill* next month. The tunnel in the Healy
mine ho* been driven in ISO yard* without
showing any sign of the vein. The C.P.R.

Horse tunnel so that work can be carried on
from botb ends. Men are on the road to

■sh, and w ill therefore divide the Irish vote,
but Butler is the greatest favorite among the
Irish, and indeed among the Germans, who
now wield a potent influence in American
politics. It is well known that Blaine is in
favor of the annexation of Canada. Butler
will stand for the presidency whether the
democrats nominate bun or not, for he has
already received the nomination of the Greenback party, and that is sufficient for him.
The dread of a division may secure him the
majority of votes at the coining Chicago convention.
This is the Fourth of July—the glorious
Fourth—and as I write, powder is being
burned In fr*nt of my window, and banner*
are waving in the breeze. The celebration
ia now almost confined to small boys, many
of whom don't understand English, and
nine-tenths of whom never heard of Washington or Thomas Jefferson. The Americans
—sous of those who once celebrated the day
with so much meaning and enthusiasm—de
sert the city in thousands to escape the noise
and confusion of the glorious Fourth, which
it really becoming a nuisance, and worse;
for the accidents attending it are many, as
the decrease iu the number of eyes aud
fingers among our population on the sorrowful fifth testifies.

During each ('-u'of '-week rr\\.e>h committee work wa* ■su** nn -he House appropriations, the laat ot irhica, the Fortification bill, has at last Ilea reported.
Prominent Demoori in Congress, those
whose o|i' .ions wouk he of most value, are
y reticent concerning their preferences
for a Presidential caiiriiilate. Senator Bayard
in expressing his viefrs, has said that be only
desires the lumiinatitn of the man who can
win.
The Committee on Kxpenditures of Pub
lie Money have decided to hold all their fu
ture sittings with :l<>sed doors, and their
stenographer will fa'ni-'h a report of such
portions of the evidence as the public will
l-t* permitted to kno-v. Postmaster General
tjirtaham and Secretary Chandler have been
testifying before the committee in relation
to the recent frauds in Iheir department*.
The latter says the* is no further use of his
being called to tho stand, as everybody at
the Capitol knows the utmost efforts are being made to unearth the Navy frauds. 'I'he
Secretary haa written a letter, which promises to becomo a classic, directing a copy to
each member of the court-martial which recently tried for dmnkentss aud failed to convict a certain Lieut, of the Navy. Mr.
('handler tells them their lenient judgment
is inexcusable in officers who regard thenonor
of their profession. He further tells them
if they will not perform their duty by con-
demnitigsuchoffetiders, the legislative branch
of the Government will, in some way, stamp
out the vice of dnmkeness among ISavy officers.
Representative Valentine at one end of
the Capitol and Senator Hawley at the other
took occasion to defend Senator Logan from
the charge of being a land-grabber. There
had appeared in the Congressional "Record''
a statement containing a catalogue of citizens holding enormous tracts of land in the

The Lord St. Leonards who hu just
been sentenced far a criminal assault is
thesecond Baron, bar iug succeeded his
grandf ilher, who rose from the position
of errand boy in a conveyancer's office
to that of Lord Chancellor, first of Ireland, tben of En {land. The Chancellor's father was u hairdresser, and the
shop iB still open in I'nrlingtoii street
where the elder Sugden curled the
locks of the nobility and gentry iu the
days of George III. The Chancellor
died intestate, and family Bquabbles
over his property supervened. The
scat of tbe Chancellor waa lioyle Farm,
one of the most beautiful spots on the
Thames. By some accounts Boyle Kami
did not pass to the present Karon, who
was thrown on the world with his title
and a very small income to sustain it.
The title, however, g.,t him j wife with
fortune. In 187(1 he married un officer's
daughter, Miss Dushwood, who hud
$500,000 iu her own right. On it he
lived hard, and found himself quickly
first in the Court of Divorce, next in
the Court of Bankruptcy. In Fehrnury,
last year, Lady St. Leonards obtained a
divorce, wi'h the custody of ber clii d,
and the evidence was most damaging to
bim.   lie has since been u vagrant.
The following estirnatn of Gen. Gordon appear in Senor Custelur's last Review
oj the Month. He says: "Only when I
turn back Io ancient times do 1 fin,'

I certainly Jo no! compare him to the
first dincoverers of the New World
among whom the element of the warrior wus predominant; I compare him,
though you may greatly marvel, to the
first Jesuit iiilssioiiiiries, and among
them to those who went first lo India und
China. Tho missionaries and the explorers are marvellously united in the
Pasha and the Briton, as they united in
them. He resembles the'n in their incomprehensible mixture of motives,
their mingled worldllness and asceticism, their extraordinary blending of
prophetic sentiments with mathematical calculations, their enormous individual sacrifice, and their keen oye to
commercial advantages. A pure moral
ity, a positive theology, a practical mind
are three of bis great qualities, and no
one can read the history of Gordon
without drawing parallels between him
and the early Jesuits.''
Tho once-renowned tenor Tamberlik
has been recently engaged upon a concert tour in Hussia, und iiotwitbstand
ing that his voice has greatly deterior
uted, for he is between 00 aud 70 years
of age, with considerable success. Everywhere he has hud large and enthusiastic audiences, and every piece he has
sung bus been vociferously encored.
Four concerts which lie gave at 8t. Petersburg are said to have brought hiiii
in nearly $15,000.   Ab be was rich when
J.'etired from the stage bis unexpected und momentary return to public life
has come upon his old admirers us a
surprise. Tamberlik thinks the time
will come when great opera singers, like
great bullet dancers, will no longer be
required, for much of what used to be
sung upon the lyric stage is now spoken
in the form  of recitative.

May a special exhibition was opened by

great satisfaction and ustonishment that
so many useful tniugs could he furnished at such a price. Tin, furniture is in
every way likely lo fulfil the intention
ofthe Corporation in desiring to make

Lord Wolselev takes command of the
expeditionary force which starts for
Khartoum in the first wee't of Aiuust.
His old lieutenants Sir Usdvers Bllller
and Sir Herbert .Stewart, accompany
him, tbe former as second iu command.
Col. Stewart will not he associated with
the duties ho so ably carried out in the
Soudan, as the cavalry will be under
the command of Sir Drury Lowe. He
will be Adjutant and Quartermaster General. At the service clubs in Loudon
they .are anxiously looking out for the
official "tip," as in tbe Tel el Kebir affair, and the number of days and hours
which will suffice to crush the Mahdi
and restore Gordon to his countrymen.
A French medical writer is reproducing some of the stories of Talleinent dus
Reaux. From one of them it appears
that Mile, de Bourbon would not permit
the word death to be used iu her presence. One of her friends being dangerously ill. she sent Mile, de Chalais
to her for news, "But," said she, "you
must not tell me what bus taken place."
When Chalais returned Mile de Bourbon asked, "Does she continue to cut?"
"No," said Chalais. Does sho not
speak?" "Still less." "Does she not
hear?" "Not at all." "Why, sbe must
be dead then?" "Miidame," said Cha-
luis, "it is you who huve suid so, not I."
Pressuro ii being put on the French
Ministry by the Prefect, the .Municipality, and the Deputies ol Ninies in order
to obtain the withdrawal of the prohibition of bull-fighting before the Oih of
July, the day fixed for a great exhibition by the Spanish torreiidor Francuelo.
Both sides seems Inclined to a compromise. The people of tbe south of France
are so fond of bull-lighting that if the
Government does not yield somewhat it
may meet with political reprisals.
Women both in France and Switzerland, have a far more important role in
the family, among the middle and lower classes, than with us, The female,
though not exempt from hard work,
undertakes the thinking and managing
department in the family affairs, and
the husband is but the executive officer.
In Switzerland especially the female is
notably superior in manneis, habits,
tact, and intelligence to the   husbano.
The girl undergraduates Cambridge,
in England, had their innings the other
day in the Moral Science Tripos, whin
the only first-class was a Newnham student, but they were rather out, of it in
the longer and more Important class
lists. In the Classical Tripos the ladieB
had no first-class, and in the Mathematical they had no wranglers, and their
best "man" was only equal to the four-
ty-fourth on the list.
At a banquet of tbe Commercial Society in Berlin it was said that three
letters destined for Bayreuth had been
sent to Beirut, in Syria, bnt finally
reached their destination. While on
the other band il appears that the Khedive of Egypt donated a considerable
sum of money toward the musical enterprise «t Bayreuth, under the impres
sion that he was advancing the interest
of a school of music at Beirut.
Every one has heard of condensed
milk, but condensed, or rather solidified
drinks of a more potent nature are a
novelty. An ingenious French chimist
hasdicovered a method by which any
wine, spirit, or malt liquor can be solidified into a cake, like chocolate, and so
conveniently carried about in the pockets of the thinly.

resort to the most sa, ige means of couipul
sion, tearing off their nlothes, pulling their
hair, anil even bitinglhetn, continuing the
torture tlir.iughimt, thi day until the victims
pronounce the sacrajiental words. This
being accomplished, the unfortunate invalids
are again consigned to their relation* who
take them homo with tear* of joy, only to be
bitterly undeceived by finding them later on
worse than before. This year the same scans

The Pall Mall Gazelle discusses the question: "What ought a wife to oall her husband in upeakinu to a third person!" Should
she say "my husband," or should she use the
surname without any prefix, as Mrs Oarlyle.
used to talk nf "Oarlyle," or should she adopt
another nlan of that lady's and speak, as it
were, of "Mr. C!" Pel-haps it is a mattorof
indifference in Kngland, but in France a woman'* usage in the matter is taken as a test
of breeding. In tbe provinces, it seems,
wives speak of their husbands as "monsieur"
aa if their particular "monsieur" were superior to all others. Or perhaps they think
this style expresses an indiffe.ence indicative
o' "bon ton.' "My husband." they imagine,
would be i ulgar. With the polite world of
Paris, on the oontrary. "my husband" is accepted as the proper phrase, subject to two
exceptions. A very affectionate wife may
speak of her husband by hit Christian name
while after a certain age any other ityle
except the surname, with the prefix ' monsieur," is held to bo ridiculoui and a sign of
'provincialism."
