lie believed himself to have been
elevated tu the rank of a general officer,
und itim'sted on being provided with a
miliinrv band, to play before his windows
every evening after dinner. Ile invited me, one oav, in lhe Queen's name,
to dinner ill his apartments, some time
after this delusion hmt manifested itself.
Il was a soft. September evening, and
the country roundabout wasevery where
bronzed with the touch uf nuiumn.
During dinner, Sir Henry treated his
larly with nil the profound respect and
ceremony due to royalty, and I of
course, waa obliged to assume a similar
deportment; while she, poor soul was
compelled lo recievo with condescending urbanity attentions, every one of
which smote her In-art as an additional
evidence of the inveteracy of her hus-
bano's malady. I observed her narrowly. There was no tear in her eye—
no flurry of manner—no sighing*; hers
was the dtep silent anguish of a breaking heart!
Shortly after dinner   had   been   re»
moved,   we   drew   our   chairs—Lady
Anne in the cenire, seated on a  sort of
throne, specially   provirled for   her  by
the baronet - in a circle round the ample
bow-window that overlooked   the  most
sequestered part of the groundscnnnecl-
ed with the establiahitirnt, as well  as a
sweep of line scenery in the distance   In
a bower, a little to our right, was place.!
Sir Henry's band,   who were playing,
very affectingl*. various pieces of hrillant
military     music.       liy    my   direction
privately given   befotehand,   they suddenly glided from a bold  march,  inlo a
concert on French horns.     Oh how ex-
quisito was that soft melanchly wailing
melody I      Tb"   hour—tlie   deepening
gloom of evening—tbe circumstances—
the persons—were all in mournful keep
ing with   the music, to  which we were
listening  in    su! due I silence.      Lady
Anne's tears stole faBt down her cheeks,
while her eyes were fixed with aad earn
cslness upon her huaband, «ho sat in a
low chair, a little on her left hand,   hia
chin lesting on the palm of   his   hand,
gazing »tth a   melancholy   air   on tbe
larkening scenery without.   Occasionally I heard Lady Anne struggle to subdue a sob, but unsuccessfully.  Another
and  another,   and   another   forced   its
way—and I   trembled   lest her   excitement should   assume   a   more  violent
form.    I saw her, almost unconsciously,
lay her hand upon that of the   baronet,
and clasp it with convulsive energy. So
she held ii for some moments,' when the
madman B'owly turned round.looki.ig her
full in the face; his countenance underwent a ghastly change, and fixing on her
an   eve   of   demoniac   expression, he
slowly rose in his seat, seeming, to   my
disturbed fancy, an evil spirit called up
by the witchery of musio,  and  Bprung
out of the room.     Lady Anne,   with a
faint groan, fell at lull length upon  the
floor; her sister, shrieking wildly,   rove
to raise her in vain; I hurried after the
madman, but, finding his keeper HTM At

AglftAte keeper had called   out loudly
for assistance ds he ran along  and  his
voice attracted one or two of the men
whom I had despatched after him, and
between   the   three   Sir   Henry   was
brought home again, to all appearance
dead.      An   eminent surgeon   in  the
neighborhood waa summoned in   to hia
assistance, for   I   could  not   quit the
chamber of Lady Anne—she was totally
insensible.having fallen into a succession
of  swoons since the  moment cf  Sir
l.enry's departure,  Lady Julia was in
an adjoining rooni shrieking in violent
hvsterics; and, in short, it seemed not
impossible that she might lose ber reason,
and Sir Henry and   Lady   Anne their
lives.   'Tis a small matter  to  mention
at such a.crisis as tbis, bot I recollect it
forcibly arrested  my   attention  at   the
time—the band of musicians, unaware
of the catastrophe that had occurred, according to their.orders, continued playing the musio  that had   been attended
witb suoh disastrous consequences; and
as Lady Anne's bedchamber happened to
be in that part of tbe  building  nearest
to tlie sp it where tbe band was stationed-, we continued t<} hear the sad wailing
of the bugles and horns without,  till it
occurred to Mrs. V—tb send.and silence
Ihcm.      This  little  incidental circumstance—the.sudd-'n mysterious seiiure
of Sir Henry, the shrieks of Lady Julia,
tbe s«oons of Lady Anne—all combined, completely bewildered me. It seemed
to be a dream.
I cannot—I  need not—dwell   upo
ihe immediate consequences of that sa'
night.      Suffice it to say, Sir.   Henry
was found lo have received severe but
not fatal injury,   which,   however,  was
skilfully and  successfully  treated,   but
he lay in a state of  comparative  stupor
for near a  week,  at  which   period   his
mental malady losumed its wildest form,
and   rendered    necessary   the severest
treatment.       As  for Lidy   Anne,   her
stale became eminently  alarming,  and
as soon as some   of the more dangerous
symptoms had subsided, we determined
on removing her at all   hazirds,   from
her present proximity to  Sir   Henry, to
— Hall, trusting to the goo! effects of a
total change of scene and of faces.   She
had not strength enough to oppose our
measures, but suffered herself to be con-
ducierl from S.nnerlield without an  effort at complaint.    I trembled to see an
decisional vacancy in the expression of
her eve, was il impossible that   her  husband's malady   might prove at  lenglh
contagious.    Many weeks passed   over
her befo c   Lady Anne  exhibited the
slightest signs   uf   amendment.       Her
shocks had   been   too   numerous   and
severe—her anxieties and   agonies   loo
o ntinued —lo warrant reasonable hopes
of her u liuiute recovery.      At length
however,   the lapse of  friendly   time,
potent, in a«su iging the sorrows of mankind, the incessant and most affectionate
ur.-nn..ii'. of   her   iniiu. i..ir.   rul;.live.,
were rewarded by seeing   an   impiove-
meiit,   slight   though    it   waa.     The
presence of ber little boy powerfully engaged her attention.     She would  have
l,iin lying beside   her on  the   bed  for
hours together; she spoke little   to  him
sleeping or    waking, but   her e*e was
ever fixed upon his little  featurw, and
when she was asleep, her fingers Vou Id
unconsiously wreathe themselves among
his   flaxen   curls.    About  Sir  Henry
she made litile or no inquiry; and when
she dii we of course put the best  face
possible upon matters.      Her   frequent
efforts to see and converse with him bad
proved woefully and unitromly   unsuo
cessful; and she seemed   henceforth lo
give up the idea of all interference with
But the original, the direful occasion
of all ibis domestic calamity, must not
be overlooked. The contest respecting
the title and estates of Sir Henry went
on as rapidly as the nature of lhe case
would peiniit. The new claimant was,
1 think as I hinted before, a man of
low station; be had been, I believe,
sort of slavedriver, or factotum on a
planter's estate in one of the West India
islands; and it was whispered that a rich
Jew had been persuaded into sueh con
tidence in the man's prospects, as to advance him, from lime to time, on his
personal security, the considerable supplies necessary to prosecute his claims
with effect.
There was very many matters of most
essential consequence lhat no one could
throw light upon but the unfortunate
baronet himself; and his solicitor had
consequently, in the hope of Sir Heniy's
recovery, succeeded in interposing innumerable obstacles, with the view, as
well as wearing out his opponents, as
affording every chance for the restoration
of his client's sanity! , It was, I found,
generall),- understood in the family, that
the solicitor's expectation, ol success in
the !aw_uil were far from sanguine; i,,,
that be b.lieved the new claimant lo be
ihe bona fide heir lo tbe title, but
was in the hands of those who would
r nsack the world lor evidence—and,
when it was wanting, mah it. Every
imaginable source of delay, however—
salvatinn to tbe one paty, destruction
to the other—was at length closed up;
ihe case was completed on . both sides
add set down for trial.

delusions took possMnon of him. He
was at one time composing a history of
the whole world; at another, writing a
memoir of every memlier that had-
ever sot in the House of Commons, to*
gether with several otlier magnificent
undertakings. All, however, at length
gave way to "The Pedigree, a Tale of
Real Life," which consisted of a rambling, exaggerated account of his own
lawsuit. It was occasioned by his
happening, unfortunately, to cast his
eyo upon the following Jittle paragraph
in his newspapers, which chanced to
have been most stupidly overlooked by
the person who had been engaged for
no other purpose tban to read over the
paper beforehand, and prevent any
such allusions from meeting the eye of
the sufferer:
"Sir Henry Harleigh, Bart. — Thia
unfortunate gentleman continues still
greatly indisposed. We understand
that little hope is entertained of his
ultimate recovery. The result, therefore, of the approaching trial of 'Doe on
the demise of Higgs v. Harleigh,' will
signify but little tothe person principally interested.'
From the* moment of his reading
rhese lines, he fell into a state of profound melancholy, which was, however,
somewhat relieved by the task by
which he' had occupied hi nisclf, of recording his own misfortunes. He had
resumed his former drew .of green baize,

He spoke of course, in the   third   person; and stuted iu a  simple  and  most
feeling manner,   his   birth,   educarion,
foituii", family,  marriage—his   Parlii..
uientury career—inshort, his happiness,
prosperity, his pride.      Then he represented tim  contemptuous   indifference
with   which  he treated  the first com
niuuications   concerning    the    attack
meditated upon his title and   property,
ns well as the consternation with whioh
he subsequently discovered the formidable character of the claiinset up against
him.    He   begged   me—the jury—to
put myself in his place; to fancy his
feelings; and proceeded to draw a mast
erly sketch of the facts of the case. He
drew a lively   picture   of   the   secret
misery he bad endured—his agony lest
his wife should hear of  the  disastrous
intelligence—his sleepless  nights   and
harassing days—the   horrid   apprehension of  his   adversary's  triumph-the
prospect of his own   degradation—his
wife—his child's   beggary—till I   pro
test   he   brought tears into my eyes.
But, alas! at this point of his  history,
he mentioned his prodigious  discovery
of the mode of turning tallow into wax,
and   dashed   oft' into   an extravagant
enumeration of the advantages of  the
speculation!      Then, before me,   stood
confessed-THE madman—violent   and
frantic in his gestures, haranguing trie,
in my own person, on the immense and
incalculable wealth that would reward
the projector; and had I  not risen  to
go, he would   probably have continued
in the same strain for the remainder of
the day!    I had proposed  calling that
evenittg on Lady Anne—but I gave up
the idea.      The image  of her insane
husband wou d be too fresh in iny mind.

ich interest   waa excited, and  the
court crowded at an early hour.    Four
of the most   distinguished  counsel at
the bar had  taken   their   seats, each
with his ponderous load of papers and
liooks before him, in   the   interest   of
Sir Henry, and three in that of his opponent.        A   special jury was sworn;
the judge took his seat; the  cause was
called on; the witnesses were summoned.    The plautifi's junior  counsel  rose
to open   the   pleadings—after having
paused for some time for the arrival of
hia   client's attorney,  who,   while  he
was speaking, at  length mode his appearance, excessively pale an i agitated,
Bnd hurriedly Whispered to his leading
counsel.    The plantiff had been  found
dead in his bed that   morning -having
been carried thither in a state of brutat
intoxication the preceding night, from
a tavern-dinner with his attorney   and
witnesses.    He died single, and  there
of   course   was   an   end of the whole
matter that  had  been  attended   with
such direful conseqt'-r.ees to Sir Henry
and his lady.    But of what avail is the
now established security of   his   title,
rank,, and   fortune   to  their unhappy
owner?—an   outcast    from   society —
from   home —from   family—from   the
wife of his bosom —even from himself?
What signifies the splendid intelligence
to Lady  Anne—perishing  under the
pressure of her misfortunes?       Will it
n >t   a   thousand-fold    aggravate   the
agonies she is enduring?
_   It has been thought   proper   to   intrust to me the difficult   task   of   communicating the news to both parties, if
1 think it advisable tbat it   should    be
done, at all.    What am I to do?—What
may be the consequence of the  secret's
slipping out suddenly from any of those
around Lady Annul About the baronet
I   had   a little   apprehension;   I felt
satisfied that he could not comprehend
it—that whether he bud    lost or   won
the suit was a matter of equal   moment
to himl
As I bad a patient to visit this
morning, whose residence wus near
Soinerfie'd, I determined to take that
opportunity of trying the effect of the
t,l igbttoc on Sir Henry. It was
about two o'clock when I called, and
found him sitting by the fin;, reading
one of Shakespeare's plays. I gradually |...| his thoughts into a suitable
train, and then told liim briefly and
pointedly, and accurately, bis own his
tory, up to tho latest incid-nt nf ull —
but as of a third person, and that a
iiobleiiriii. He listened to the whole
with profound interest.
"God bless me!" he exclaimed, with
a thoughtful air, us I concluded—"I
surely mu -t havt either heard or read
of this story liefore !—Vou don't mean
to suy that this is fact? —That it has
hn; polled lately?''
"Indeed I do, Sir Henry,'' I replied,
looking al him earnestly.
"And are the parties living?—Lord
and  Lady—?"
"Itoth of  them—at   this moment
and not ten miles from   whore   we  are
now sitting!"
"Indeed!' he replied, musingly—
"that's unfortunate!''
"Unfortunate, Sir Henry?" I echoed
with astonishment.
"Very—for mv purpose. What do
you suppose 1 have been thinking of all
this while?' he replied wiih a smile.
What a subject it would be for a tragedy!—But, of course, since the parties
are living, it would never do! - Still, I
cannot help thinking that something
might be made of it! One might disguise and alter the facts."
' Tt is a tragedy of very real life!" 1
exclaimed, with a deep sigh.
"Ind'ed, it is!" he replied, echoing
my sigh—"it shows that the fact ofien
transcends all fiction— does it not?
Now, if this had been n plot of a tale or
novel, people would have said—'how
improbable! how unnatural!"
"Ay, indeed they would. Sir Henry,"
said I, unable to keep the tears from
my eyes.
" 'lit affecting," he replied, his eyes
glistening with emotion, adding after
a moment's pause, in a somewhat
tremulous tone—"Now which of the
two do you most pity, doctor, Lord or
Lady Mary—?"
"Both.    1 scarce know which most."
"How did they boar the news, by the
way, do you know?"  he incruired, with
a sudden interest.
"I believe Lady Mary—is in too dangerous circumstances to be told of it.
They say she is dying."
"Poor creature! what a melancholy
fate! Aud she is young and beautiful,
you sop?"

At the Agricultural Dinner on Friday nij'ht last week, the lion. John
Kibsou was denounced by his colleague,
M.*. Jas. Orr, M.P.P., who informed
the audience that tbe Provincial Secretary had not discharged his duty. This
announcement was received with a
Htorni of applause by the assembled
guests - nearly all farmers who reside
in New Westminster district Not one
vontured to say a word iu defence of
tin-('mil Harbor land-grabber. Straws
show the way the wind blows, and thia
little incident proves that one selfish
politician is—played out.
On Tuesday His Excellency the
Uoverhor General arrived here and received two deputations of citisens; they
bresented him with the addresses published ou another page, and he was
well pleased by the enthusiastic display of loyalty to Her Majesty. He
will visit us again on bis way to the
east, and, all our .people will meetyhim
at the terminus and wish him God
A correspondent who writes from
Lytton, says: "The farmers all over the
upper country are alarmed by the high
rates charged on the railroad for
freight; and the majority have decided
to do no threshing this fall; but the
minority have resolved to build a large
storehouse at Yale, and to take their
wheat over the old road on sleighs to
that point, and from thence old Father
Fraser will take it to maiket. The
r-now road and the river will be the
rivals of steam.
Mr. Allison, a gold commissioner of
Similkameen, is in Victoria, and Bays:
"The mines are rich, but it is too late
for adventurers without money to go
there this fall. He is confident that
next year will witness a mining boom
not less exciting and important than
that which was witnessed in the famous palmy days of Carib"». He describes the district as "an Eldorado
that will yield fortunes for a few and
disappointments for many."
The dangerous bar near Ladner's
Landing in tho Fraser will be removed
by the dredger. It is rumored that
this work will be executed without
delay, but an improvement in the approach to the Royal City will not be
executed with despatch by the officials
who reside at Victoria. Every one of
them believes New Westminster to be
ft rival that deserves to perish. And
it may perish if the citizens continue
to sleep with their eyes open.
The scene at Yale on Saturday last
beggars description. A thousand
white men lately employed on the railroad rushed out of the cars and into
the saloons. In two hours the streets
were full of lunatics; they roared and
Wived and; attempted to force their
way into private houses. Twelve liun-
di'nl Chinese arrived by the same train
and went into the woods and cocked
their rice. It is amusing to see the
difference between Pagans and Christians.
With surprise we learn that "work
on the island railway progresses rapidly." But when the road shall have
linen completed, what will they do with
It ? It will not be used to carry coal,
and there is nothing more on the island
that may be exported. An excursion
train every Sunday from Victoria to
Nanaimo will be very interesting, but
the millions taken from the public
purse to provido this luxury for the
citizens of the Capital are not evidence
of wisdom or prudence The- island
railroad is a huge illustration of the
knavery that is practised by "statesmen" ou this continent.
The people of Seattle are divided in
lo two parties. The working men
have warned tho Chinese to leave the
rity on or Wore tho 1st pro*..; but the
defenders of law and order say "there
shell bu no violence," and have been
sworn in as special constables, and are
ready to keep tho peace with arms in
their hands. As Sir Lucius O'Triggor
says—it is a very pretty quarrel as it
Attacked by the whites at Green
river, in Wyoming Territory, early in
nVptember, tin, Chines,, set fire to their
houses and fled. They returned on
Tuesday last and commenced to work
us miners in the ruins. In a few hours
one of them panned out 16000, and
several others picked up the coined
nuggets they had concealed. These
facts are verified on oath by the Rev.
Mr. Therloway, the Congregational
minister. The presence of mind displayed on this occasion was very useful
to the Pagans in a Christian land.
At Los AngeleB, on Monday, Chas.
Miles, County Recorder, was up be
fore the Grand Jury, charged with
stealing $11,842 from the' public
purse. He is a County Recorder. The
indictments were found, and he was
imprisoned; but, he gave security for
$2,000, and was released, and now he
may go with $9000 gained. Justice is
cheap enough at Los Angeles.
The New York "World" gives a pen
and ink sketch of Mr. Ferdinand Ward
in jail. He looks liko an aristocratic
thief seated at his piano. His suite of
rooms arc splendid, and be pays for
them. A rich man in jail may have
anything he wants in this free coun
try. Men less guilty under the same
roof are half-starved and treated like

Colonna (the latter nee Miss Eva Mac-
kay) arrived in Paris on Monday on a
visit to her aunt. The dinner given
by Mrs. Mackay astonished the old
nobility.      Tbe table was transformed
for its help to a greater power in ravaging and desolating the homes of a
people with which it has no quarrel,
p-rhaps not even a grudge;   it may be,
into a bed of roses, with just margin Jon the part of tbe great powers,
enough left for the plates and glasses.
The flowers were all half-blown, and
of a delicate pink. Light was supplied
by wax candles, and each of them
seemed to glow from the heart of a
rose." Republican simplicity is very
interesting, In this free country we
have slaves and kings, but they art-
called by o'her namew.
The "Oregonian," referring to the
proceedings at Seattle, says: "Tliow
who warned the Chinese to leave and
threatened them with butchery if they
did not, are men of no note or character. It is said that the Mayor of
Tacoma presided. It Is a shame to
Tacoma that she should have chos-n
such a man to be her Mayor. Suppose
theso Chinese do not go; will this Mayor
of Tacoma and his fellow ruffians
carry out their implied threat of
Wholesale butchery f The responsible
citizens of Seattle and Tacoma owe it
to themselves and to their cities to
call counter meetings at once and con
demn their ruffianly conduct with its
suggestions bf violence and Borror. f?
The responsible citizens have taken
the hint, and the result is, they are ih
arms and ready to defend the Chinese.

The Conservatives have resolved to
dissolve Parliament on the 7th Decern
ber. Great preparations are being made
by both parties, and the general impression is, that a vast majority of the newly
enfranchised millions of Great Britain
will give their votes to the Conservatives
The workingmen of England are proud
of her supremacy, and believe ihat il
cannot be maintained by the peace at-
any-price policy. This feeling is appar
ent in every part of ihe country, and
therefore lhe resu't of the approaching
contest is not doub.ful. My Lord of
Salisbury is lhe coming man, and in the
spring of next year he will marshall the
might of England and be ready to take
a hand in the great game of war which is
inevitable. The extravagant demand of
Parnell in Ireland will increase the Conservative power in Great Britain, but it
is quite possible that the Irish will be
permitted to rule themselves in a local
parliament, and send representatives to
lhe Imperial Parliament. The Irish in
Ireland are proud of the Empire, and if
the land question were finally settled,
ihey would be as loyal as the Scotch.
A special correspondent of ihe Lor.

There is a strange, but ominous,
silence prevailing throughout Europe
at this moment. It reminds one of the
dead calm that precedes the most terrible storms in the tropics Every power
has its own particular game to play, its
own particular aim to achieve: he it

acquirement of territory or seaports, or
a position from which it may dominate
or menace the adjoining territories or
commerce of a rival. The game, whatever its object, must I* played, but with
the smallest possible risk of loss. Thus,
each 0110 wishes the other to commence
the melee, hoping he can strike when
tho antagonist he chooses is at a disadvantage. Them appears to lie some
agreement c ircted with the Kaiser-
bund, that ('ermany and Austria are to
hold aloof, while Kussiu, by means of
her Bulgarian allies, is to open the way
to Constantinople. What the recompense to Germany and Austria is to be,
is very difficult to say, and we feel
sorely puzzled to comprehend the problem. There cannot be the shadow- of a
doubt that if Russia secures Oonstanti
nople, she Imcomes the arbiter of Europe Germany ana* Austria ar(B p-H'
fectly aware of that fact, but they may
have some understanding in relation to
other provinces of Turkey, and the absorption of Albania, Macedonia, or
even Roumania and Servia, although
these last are highly improbable. As
to Bosnia and the Herzegovina, they
virtually belong to Austria, notwith
standing the pretended protectorate
only; so that their annexation would
be no bribe to Austria. Still the capture of Gonsantinople by the Russians,
whatever may be the bargain, would
destroy tho influence of Germany and
Austria combined, and would, in the
words of Napoleon the Great, muko the
world Cossack. Now, this is simply
out of the question, so that we must
try to solve the riddle in some other
way. May it not be that Bismarck is
trying to force the hands of Russia
and France, and luring them on to their
destruction 1 This is possible, because
they would in this way be compelled to
declare themselves, and he could by
this means attack them as it suited his
convenience, If there is any secret
alliance between these two powers, they
would require to play their respective
parts, and the forces of the two German
powers could then be directed in
the way best calculated to strike at the
weakest points. We note that a strong
British fleet has been ordered to the
Mediterranean, whether as a precautionary measure, or to watch the course
of events and lie ready to enter the
Dardanelles, if required, is a matter
that will be better understood by-
andbye. What part of the play
England will perforin is yet uncertain; but that there is some under
standing with Germany and Austria,
we have no reason to doubt. A
strong fleet of French won vessels have
proceeded to the Mediterranean, osten
sibly to perform some evolutionary ex
ercises; but they may be found acting
in a more serious business, when least
expected. It would not be surprising
to find the Italian fleet had been got
ready to exercise also, and their evolutions might bring them near the Eng
lish vessels. There are at present som
disturbances on the Island of Crete:
they might look in there to protect
Italian subjeots. The Russian fleet is at
this moment concentrating at Sebastc-
pol, and all tbo approaches tn that great
fortress are being fortified with the
most feverish haste. Why such precautions are being adopted, when Russia is at Peace with all the world, it
is hard to say; but such is the fact. At
Batouin, war material is Ik.ing accuinu
luted in vast quantities, although there
is no apparent cause for it. Koumania
is beginning to quake. She has some
sense of impending danger, and appeals
to the powers to allow her to remain
neutral; but this, it is quite evident, is
out of the question. In the event of
hostilities, she will be used as Russia
thinks fit, and her people will be forced
into the Russian ranks. Some day,
Roumania will be a great battlefield
and she will be torn and desolated be
cause she hupp ns to be placed between
the great contending powers. Bulga
ria will suffer in the same way, but
she has by her r.cent action, deprived
her-elf of any sympathy. Mr. Gladstone will never be able to make any
more capital out of Bulgarinn atrocities. There is perhaps no part, of the
world of vhich tbe map will undergo
so great a transformation as amongst
these Balkan States, when the coming
struggle is over, and it will require
very clever nianeeVering on the part of
these little States to preserve their
autonomy: it will depend on whether
or not they c.st in their lot with the

It is very unfortunate that many
people are unable to distinguish be
tween political antagonism and personal
animosity. The individual, with the
true politician, is entirely lost sight of;
he looks only at the public acts and
manners of the man who has the temerity to assume the power, knowledge,
and ability of a legislator. It is needless to say that men mistake their
missions: a man who would make a
very good baker or dealer in peanuts
ii carried away by his vanity to offer
himself for public honors, and by sheer
impudence, a voluble tongue, and the
fact that he is free from scruples of
conscience—hence, a useful tool in ihe
hands of schemers—is thrust into a
position for which be is wholly unfit;
therefore, a misfortune for the commonwealth. The real duty of a journalist
uMo expose such men, to hold them up
toaAAm public scorn and contempt in
oCT' that they may lie cast aside to
rpalcii.roonn.for bettor men,- {luring their
tenure of office they not only disgrace
and degrade the public service, but
they retard the progress of the country;
by their corruption the people's property is wasted, the country impoverished, and excessive taxation becomes
necessary. Industry is clogged and
withers away under the influence of
maladministration, and opportunities
for the general welfare are lost,liecause,
in the absence of confidence in a government, capital is driven away to seek
safer and more stable institutions, in
countries whore the people insist upon
honest and patriotic administration.
Men who vote for and support political
adventurers are traitors to their country; they seek only their own paltry
gains, no matter in what form, quite re
gardless of the injury being done to their
fellow 8ubjects,and look upon patriotism
and honesty as mere by-words. There
are some people of small minds in this
Province, who believe that we are
moved by personal spite or malice, in
the exposure of the person we are in
the habit of calling honest John. Such
people arrive at their conclusions, because they are themselves spiteful and
malicious; or because they are ignorant
and do not comprehend the mischief
inflicted on the country by the contin
uance of honest John in office; or,
from motives of self-interest, are sup
porters of honest John. Wiih such
people we have nothing in common,
and therefore wo never give them the
slightest consideration. Our occupa
tion of journalist compels ub to place
hon st John before the public in his
true colors, and this we must do without any regard to what some people
may thiuk or say. If we did otherwise
we should bo particeps criminis witb
honest John, and a base imposition and
disgrace to the honorable profession of
journalism. We would ask any right-
thinking man if he conceives the
celebrity above named, worthy of his
respect, when we know that with the
most heartless hypocrisy, he made religion subservient to politics; when he
1 urns our excellent system of free education into a political machine; when
ho teaches temperance and prohibition,
vying with the most reputed temperance lecturers in his extravagant and
ridiculous illustrations of the horrors
of drunkenness, in one locality, and is
a party, at the same time, to drunkenness in its mest horrible phases in another? Who assists at thn passing of
bills in the Legislative Assembly to
give away our public lands to aliens;
depriving those who conn, to aid us in
the development of the country, of
homesteads, our lal-o: ._ and artisans
of employment, and our merchants of
trade! Who connives at the gift of
pqkiic property to a railway company,
liqPuse they promise to make an extension of their line by which his own
property will become valuable; and
spends the people's taxes to pay settlers
to give up their holdings, in order that
they may be handed over to the railway
company, that, by their crushing mo
nopoly, appear likely to squeeze the
life-blood out of this country! Who,
with unblushing effrontery, goes from
settlement to settlement, making statements which he knows are untrue, be
cause he thinks that, he can impose
upon ignorant but well-meaning farm
ers and settlers, who will be simple
enough to vote for this unprincipled
adventurer at the next election? It
very often happens, however, that such
a bane as honest John, creates his own
antidote. Men of his character are
rarely possessed of brains, and finding
that saying a great deal suits the popular taste, very often say too much
Honest John promised roads, schools,
bridges, and a great deal more to the
settlers, and they have heen looking
anxiously forward to the performance;
but, alas! the promises of honest John
are like employment under his government, they are "political," and only intended to Be used that way. The Gov.
ernment are at their wits' end to keep
the administrative machine going
rounrl, even in the slovenly, slip-shod
way that accords with their untutored
ideas; and the settlers must wait till
we get a new adrrrinistratian, before
they can hope for any help, or redress
for their gnevanres.

A Frkscii Vabwin.—At a UU meeting
of tbe French Association at Grenoble, WU
de Mortillet read a paper on tertiary mai,
before tbe anthropological section. The
question, he aaid, waa not to know whether
man already existed in tbe tertiary epoch as
he existed at the present day. Animals
varied from one geological stratum to another, and the higher the animals the greater
waa the variation. It was to be inferred,
therefore, that man would vary more rapidly than the other mammals. The problem
was to discover in the tertiary period an ancestral form of man, a predecessor of the
man of historical" times. M. de Mortillet
affirmed that there were unquestionably in
the tertiary strata objects which implied the
existence of any intelligent being. These
objects have, in fact, been found at two different stages of the teitiary epoch—in the
lower tertiary at Thenay, and in the upper
tertiary at Otta, in Portugal, and at Puy
Courny, in Cantal. These objects proved
that at these two distant epochs there existed in Europe animals acquainted with the
use of lire and able more or less to cut stone.
During the tertiary period, then, there lived
animals less intelligent than existing apes.
M. de Mortillet gives the names of anthropi-
pitbeque, or ape man, to the species, which,
he maintains, was an ancestral form of
historic man, whose skeleton has not yet
been discovered, bnt who has made himself
known to us in the clearest manner by bis
works A number of flints were exhibited
from the strata in question which had lieen
intentionally chipped and exposed to fire.
The general opinion of the savant* assembled
at Grenoble was that there can no longer be
any doubt of the existence in the tertiary
period of an ancestral form of man.

Obwrver and from each other Mflpbecn invented by Dr. Luigi Ccrebot-ini, a professor
of the L'niversity of Verona. This apparatus OOniiltl mainly of a pair of telescopes
mounted on a stand and fixed on a tripod for
use. The telescopes are both brought to
bear on the object, and a reading is then
taken from a graduated scale on the instrument, which compared with a nt of printed
tables gives the distance. Uy this means
the inventor obviates the necessity for the
base line, which has hitherto had to be laid
down in these operations, and he dispenses
with all trigonometrical calculations. Distances can be measured between far off objects, and by means of a sheet of paper fixed
on a drawing-board a rough plan of the
country under measurement can be sketched.
In the same way the distances of ships at
sea or of moving objects on land can be determined. The apparatus appeal's to be
well adapted for laud surveying, and partic
ularly for military purposes. In fact, it is
stated to have been already adopted in the
German army in the latter connection, and it
is about to lie tried by the authorities of our
War Department. A practical trial has
been made with this instrument on the
Thames Kmbunkment, when its varied usefulness was demonstrated.

have been intended by Seeu-tary Bndioott
to be the nature of a general order to urmy

Sheridan, it is said, is determined to resist
this as far as it is in his power to do so, and
it is unite likely that tiie President will lie
called upon to settle the question. In this
event it is understood that the President
will take sides with .Secretary Kndieott.

nth.tii lection into a new princi|iality

Komnelia was created for the express purpose nf giving the Porte command of the
Ualkaui, which have proved for the last
hundred years the principal harrier against
Muscovite aggression. With the Balkan
passes in tho bands of Bulgarian soldiers,
oftdcnd as they nre by Russian volunteers,
Adrianople would lie at the mercy of a sudden forward movement by a Russian expeditionary column, which, once intrenched in
the old Ottoman capital, would cut otl" the
Sultan from his western provinces, and
block the march of an Austrian force to his
assistance in the event of the Vienna Government's deciding to interpose.
It was well understood by the Turks that
the treaty wrung from them at San Stefano
left them strategically helpless, and rendered their retention even of a foochold in
Europe impracticable. Should Abdul Hatned
fail to make the most strenuous endeavors
to keep the control of the Balkans, he will
be certain to provoke an outburst of popular
resentment like that which cost Abdul Aziz
his throne and his life. Not only must he
insist on his ri^htto quell by force the Rou-
melian revolt, and thus preserve the means
of defence that the Berlin Congress gave
him, but he must act with thentmost promptitude, if he would prevent the flume of insurrection from involving the whole Balkan
peninsula. The Servian rebellion proved
that you cannot let a fire get under way in
any quarter of southeastern Europe without
setting the whole region between the. Danube
and the .-Egean in aMaze. Already the Servian army has been mobilized, and King
Milan will find mpossible to long repress
the excitement of his subjects and their passionate desire for extension southward. In
Macedonia eruptive forces are so active that
protracted hesitation on the part of Turkey,
or the semblance of reluctance on the part of
the great powers to sanction Ottoman coercion, would produce sn explosion.

\\ hilst the nation is partially roused to
the fact ot the insufficiency of our ships and
other naval units, such as torpedo l>oats, for
the performance of the tasks which will, in
all probability, be assigned them in the
event of war, any experiments ou the subject
of gun ft, torpedo will, if reasonably earned
out, assist the conception of what will be
tine economy in naval linunce. An experiment intimately ooonected with one of the
queetioni involved was made tome weeki
ago in l*'ulse Bey, near Simon's Bay, by the
Raleigh. In order to form au estimate of
the damage likely to be sustained by a
torpedo buat iu the endeavor to attack a
fully prt pared ship attempting to get safely
out to sea, a second-class torpedo-boat was
repreaented in facsimile by a canvas-covered
frame surmounting a raft uud anchored in
the hay, tdx miles from the anchorage. The
night being dark was extremely favorable to
the suppo.--.ed attack. The ship having made
all ready at if for real warfare (the heavy
gnm being double-loaded with case shot and
battering charge*-, and in addition to the
machine guns, the hammock nettings l>eiug
manned by riflemen with ten rounds of ball-
oartridge apiece), left the anchorage, and
Using her electric light soon searched out the
target, but not liefot e a false alarm had caused
the whole tire from from the starboard tide
to he delivered at what appeared to be the
ou«line of the target, but which turned out
to be the afterglow, left on the surface when
the li_'ln has beeu playing on the water and
h is been suddenly extinguished, and  which
Here took a definite shape. The lirst glimpse
of the target waa in the circle of ligflt forme I
by tbe further extremity of tiie electric
beam, und though small, at 500 yards was
exceedingly blight aud distinct. All the
heavy guim were arranged 10 that if tired together, the shot would cover a compact ring
on the water, with a radius of 800 yards,—
their extreme r&ngC when laid horizontal.
—and at the "ooate firing/1 was sounded
when the target, was still at 000 yards distant
their nhot fell short, while the result waa
found to be one hit from a N'ordenfelt bullet.
Tin re is little doubt, however, that had the
target been brought within raime of the
onte-ehot, she could hardly have lived
through the tremendous hail which would
hav- been poured into her. The following
wrinkles appeared to have been gained: —1.

Recent investigations by a committee of

The great Socialist demonstration ie a
thing of the past, and many men in London
breathe more freely iu consequence. A
great load is off the minds of the London
officials, from the Home Secretary down to
the privates of the police force. The programme of the Socialists was carried out to
a sufficient extent to vindicate what they
claim as their rights, and the police made
just enough display of force to prevent instead of provoking disorder. There was a
spirit of compromise on both sides, and, although each party mustered in great
force, tne compromise was effective,
and peace prevailed. AU the available
police force of London, including reserves from every precinct in tho metropolitan district, was secretly assembled
ot Scotland Yard. Messengers were sent
every half hour from tbe scene of the parade

Cardinal Manning has issued a circular,
which was read in all the churches and chapels of the diocese, calling attention to the
Pope's encyclical letter setting apart October
as a solemn month of prayer. The subjects
mentioned in the letter as requiring the

the recent attacks upon the power and dignity of the Church, and the cholera pestilence in Spain and Italy, all of which, the
I'p-pe says, may be taken as signs of the

disorder was renewed in the evening, when
thousands paraded the streets singing socialistic airs. The police were content with
simply watching the procession.
A detputch from Utrera, in Spain, says
that an attempt to collect taxes created a

Four miners fat one night in dune,
1858, in a tent at an Australian digging
discussing their future plans nnrl deploring their ill fortune. Four weary
months they hud worked the mine without getting more than a bare living.
At length they decided to leave the
spot, though not without regret. Three
of tbem were in the mine taking a last
look round, when one said to his mates,
"Good-by: I'll giveyouafurewellbiow,"
and with that his pick sent tbe splin-
tersof qunrtz in all quarters. His trained
eye spier! a glitter on one of the bits
that landed at his feet. He picked itup,
examined it, and found it to be gold.
He at once proceeded to work with a
will. His chums saw that something
out of the common had happened, and
they, too, plied their picks vigorously.
Wiih a silent resolve they worked on until they unearthed a big nugget. Then
a fierce, glad yell of joy reached the
ears of the fonrth man at tho windlnss
at tbe mine top. "What's amiss?" be
shouted down. "Wind np," was the
reply, and when he did so the lump of
pure gold met his gaze. They called it
"The Welcome," and obtained $30,000
for it. The claim where the nrrgget was
got is now covered with the fine sticets
of the thriving town of Ballarat.
