Seldom, t'liiliiimtely, ill tile pnMllll
century do we hear of sucli coldbloodedness ns uppi'i-ra in the revolting
particulars that reni-li us of tin- brutal
i inriitof the culprits win, were
punished forn Metal "emcute'on board
a Chinese Iransp.rt, the "Mwfoo "
Thus runs lhe story:—The "Meefoo"
left Foochow for (Jhinchu, near Amoy,
on May 13, having taken on board at
the former place about 200 passengers,
who were booked for various Ysngtsze
river ports. TheRe men were thought
to lw disbanded soldiers, as each of
ihem came on board furniahod with a
passant- ticket granted by the native
authorities. They all, however, wore
civilian clothes. ' The "Meefoo" ar.
rived at Cliim-liu on the 14th, and,
having embarked 2,200 disbanded
troops, left there for Hankow on the
21 -t, arriving "en route" at Shanghai
on tlie 22nd, and leaving there on the
following day. Nothing worthy of
note occurred on the passage from
Foochow to Shanghai. It was shortly
after the transport had left this port
• Int. the trouble began. A nephew of
the Viceroy of Foochow was a passim
ger by the steamer for Hankow, and
shortly before the "Meefoo" arrived
at Ohinkiang it wns discovered that a
lot of his luggage, containing a good
ileal of money, besides his mandarin
clothing and o'her valuables, had been
stolen. Numerous complaints were
made to the general in charge of the
I: r,muled soldiers, by some of the
latter, that a great deal of money had
been stolen. Each of these 2,000
"braves'' is said to have had between
ten and twenty mexicans in hia
posne-sion, the amount with which
they were paid off. Inquiries were
made, which led to the discovery of
some of the thioveB, and part of the
Viceroy's luggage was found in the
forehold, where the passengers who
were taken on board in Foochow were
berthed. It also leaked out that
conspiracy was being hatched amongst
'hese men to kill all the foreigners on
board and tike charge of the vesse
and that for this purposo they had
come nr board, being aware ac the
same time that the disbanded troopR
would take their backpay with them
in fact, the leader of this band of
pirates, who is said to have made the
third trip in the transport, wns duriii
Hiiouijli to go to Captain Peterson, of
the "Meefoo," and tell liim he was a
blue button mandarin, and that all his
luggage, &e., had been thrown over
board, claiming 10,000 dols. damage.
and that if he were not paid this li
would take revenge on nil the foreigners
on board. Thus things went on, and
the General in charge thought it th
saf-st to defer chastisement of tho
pirates till after arrival in Nanking,
whom he would confer witl the
Viceroy and ask him what measures to
adopt, The 'Meefoo" arrived at
Nanking on May 20. The General
went on shore to gel lhe necessary in
-traction from the Viceroy, after a
few hours'absence returning on board,
when the anchor was raised, and the
"Meefoo" proceeded on her voyage to
Hankow. Now the bloodshed com
menced. It appears that the General's
orders were to decapitate the whole
gung of piraieB on the way up. But
how was this lo be safely accomplished!
The pirates were mixed up with the
disbanded .oldiers, and how were they
to be recognised, as many of Ihe disbanded troops rIbo wore civilian
clothes? The General, in thia dilemma,
gave ancret orders to each of the
soldiers to have n red ribbon wove in
his tail ; those who had none were considered pirates. The order was obeyed
and on each hatchway leading from the
forehold where the pirates were stowed
away were placed several of the
General's body guard, with drawn
swords, who had orders to cut everybody's head off who came on deck
ithout the red ribbon in his "queue."
The General himself, with drawn
sword, was posted alongside the hatch-
..av, just abaft the foremast. Soon a
head was seen popping out of the
hatchway; the red ribbon was absent,
and with three slashes, given by the
General himself, the head was severed
and rolled along tho ship's deck. This
clone, the general went on the bridge to
watch the further decapitations. Soon
four others of the pirates came up the
hatchway on the starboard side, but
hardly had they reached ihe deck
when about a doien of the Goneral's
body guard rushed upon them with
their s«ords and literally hacked them
to pieceB. the headless, armless, and
leglcs trunks rolling about the deck in
front of the chief officer's room, whilst
all around w_u_,sine«red .'ith blood.
Tbe still-convulsed limbs were then
thro.vn overboard. A few minutes
afterwards two more piratv-s showed
themselves on dock ; seeing the drawn
swortU flash around them they tried to
escape, but were caught on the quarterdeck and also cut to pieces. Three
■e of the desperadoes, also unconscious of the fate awaiting them, appeared nexi Again ihe swords flashed
around Iheir heads, and in try'ng to
taoapf 1" jumping overboard one of
ibein had his back slashed in two,
whilst another was run through with a
.weird while standing on the rails ; the
third succeeded in reaching the water
with his shoulder blade split open.
The three bleeding bodies are said to
have dyed th« water for a considerable
distance.   The "Meefoo" presented by
this time anything but an agreeable!a mission in Great Britain now, and
spectacle, the decks living smeared with the son showed a letter received from
blood fore and aft. Orders were now j him recently, in which he said:
given to suspend each one of tin: pirates ' "Things are very dull Inn- , thia i nun
by his tail to a beam and then decapitate i try Is done with Mormoni-in." lie
him.    Again   two persons   were seen (facts will Im-   found   out aft
coming up the deck, none of them
having the red ribbon in his "queue."
They were at once captured by the
body-guard and tied up to one of the
awning rafters ; already the executioner
was getting ready to strike the fatal
blow, when some of the discharged
soldiers recognised in the intended
victims two of their comrades, who had
omitted to put the ribbon in their
tails. They were, of course, released,
though another soldier barely escaped
being hacked to pieces through a
similar neglect on his part ; he received
two severe gashes across the shoulder,
which were afterward sewn np by the
chief officer. The horrible scene was
further intensified by all the I-oily
guard dipping their swords in the
pools of blood which were running into
tlio vessel's waterways. We hear they
did this iu the belief this would act as
a charm to the wearer of the sword.
News of tho feaiful slaughter which
was going on ou deck must by this
time have reached the pirates, wlio
wore stowed away in the forehold, on
the top of some coals, for no more of
them ventured to come up on deck
The "Meefoo" arrived at Wuhu on the
20 th, aud, it being evening, cost anchor.
The General, tired perhaps of the
sickening spectacle—though he had
authority to kill all the gang of pirates
—is aaid to have given the desperadoes
to understand that if any wore found
on board in the morning they would bo
decapitated, and so had better maki
good their escape. The guards, in consequence, seem not to have been very
alert, for in the morning it was found
that the remaining pirates had all made
their escape by jumping through the
ports and swimming ashore, though
probably many were drowned in the
attempt. At any rate, the ''Meefoo"
arrived at Hankow on tbe 27th with
out any further disturbance. Hefore
she left that port, however, it became
known on board that a gang of pirates,
numbering twenty five, had taken
paasago in one of the China Mer
chants' steamers in Wuhu and had
arrived in Hankow, where they were
all captured by the Taoutai's runners
in a boarding-house. They were tried
and sent to We chang, where all were
deoapitated, with tho exception of the
chief, who, as already stated, said he
was a blue-button mandarin, and had
lost all his luggage on the way up. He
is said to have well to-do friends ia
Hankow, and they are trying to save
his neck. As he claimed to have lost
all his papers, Ac, the capital sentence
was deferred pending inquiries. Th
bodies of three soldiers, horribly
mutilated, were found in the
"Meefoo's" forehold; the unfortunate
men were most likely killed by the
pirates, who took revenge on them
for their slain colleagues. The foreign
officers on board the transport givo
much credit to the General, who is a
Cantonese, for the energetic manner in
which he acted. Cruel and horrible as
the spectacle was, to this prompt action
they consider they owe their lives, as
there can be no doubt that the men
come on board for the sole purpose of
seizing the vessel, should a favorable
opportunity offer. The officers also
speak in the highest teiniii of the good
behavior of the disbanded soldiers, who
did all in their power to keep the
desperadoe- under control. — United
Service Garetle.
'llie son of  a   polygamist   told   the
writer of this, recently, that his father,
some   years   ago,   worked   the whole
summer   through  building a   house or
barn, for which in the fall  he received
•100 dols.    Of courpe 40  dols. of   that
went to the tithing fund.    Of the rest,
250 dols. went to England to bring out
two sisters, whom he married   as soon
as they arrived   here.    He   added :—
At that time my little   brothers aud
sisters and myself had no shoes to wear
uo   comfortable    clothing,    and    not
enough to eat.    At the same time the
English girls were stolen   from home ;
they packed their clothing and   sent it
offto   a neighbor's lirst;   then,   when
their father was absent, they ran away
to the coast, leaving a note   which put
the fai her on the   wrong track ;   they
had   timed the   performance  so there
should be no  delays;   and   when the
father,    Buspecting    their    intention,
rushed to Liverpool to   intercept their
flight, the   ship with   them on board
had proceeded to sea." He said further
that when his father was a missionary
in England a neighbor   of theirs   sent
him 65 dols., with instructions to pick
out some girl   who would   marry   him
and send   her over.    The  order   was
obeyed ; the woman was sent  out, and
on landing went directly to the house
of the man to whom she had been consigned, as   though she were  a bale of
rags or a   Norfolk polled  heifer.    He
further says that   such cases are   com
mon and   always   have been.    This is
worse than importing Chinese or Dago
contract   labourers.      If   tbe   matter
cannot be   reached by  law, there   certainly ought to fc» a more   general dis
tribution of the facts about   Mormon-
ism in the old country.    We   think in
this   respect   a revulsion   is going on
against the  creed   already   in   Great
Britain.    This same man's father w on

A brilliaut day in mid-August, the
sun shining down upon the golden cornfields, and yellow woods : upon a great
meadow of burnt, brown grass, and a
billowy sea of white canvas—a large
tent, or rather series of tents, to which
point of attraction people were flock
ing in crowds.
The occasion was the annual flower
show held at Kleckford, and the scene
within the exhibition was yet more
animated than that without ; for,
through the narrow channels of space
left between the tables and banks of
plants, a lively and continuous stream
of humanity kept flowing. There were
young ladies anil young men gaily chattering together, absorbed in themselves,
and without any pretence of interest
in horticulture: there were old gentlemen in warm and treasonable dis
cussion of the judges' awards, and old
ladies conscientiously burrowing after
labels with long names, which they
could not read when they had found ;
the whole aristocracy and gentry of
Fleckford were present. But, amidst
all that throng of people, no form was
more notiueablo than that of Miss Vavasour, and certainly none more worthy
of attention.
Slightly taller than the majority of
women, and with her unsurpassed
loveliness of face, Maud Vavasour was
sufficiently distinguished in appear
ance in anyassembly withont the slightest singularity of dress whicli she in
variably affected. It was one of her
especial characteristics.. Not her most
intimate and confidential friend could
have predicted what Maud would wear
upon any given occasion; but one thing
was certain, her attire wouid have iu
it a harmony, an artistic design, pro
ducing a beauty of ellect the perfection
of which her female acquaintances
toiled after in vain. Upon this day,
in deference to the character of the
spectacle, and to the unclouded and
congenial brilliancy of the weather, all
the other ladies present disported themselves in every lightand gay tint, But
Miss Vavasour it had pleased to appear abroad among these butterflies
clad wholly in black. A flowing dress
of some soft, rich material draped her
queenly form ; about her shoulders wns
folded a scarf of the same : from the
crown of her peerlesB head to the sole
of her feet she was arranged in the
same sable hue, entirely without relief,
except that, against one side of her
lace bonnet there nestled a spray of
red japonica, so cunningly uianufrir
lured after Nature's model that it
might have boen mistaken for her own
handiwork ; while, again, from the end
of the lady's parasol—black like the
rest of her appendages—hung a bunch
of crimson ribbons.
Thus she held her slow and stately
course up the tent, her glance falling
languidly, indifferently, upon the right
hand and the left as she advanced, her
head inclining a single inch, nnd the
corners of her mouth relaxing about the
sixteenth pari of one, at each of the
numerous tokens of recognition which
she received. She was accompanied
by hor father, who walked in silence
beside her, for her lips were never one
unclosed to let drop a remark for his
entertainment Fathers, in Miss Vavasour's opinion, were the appointed
medium for the supply of costly dresses,
of expensive pleasures, of desirable
luxuries; that, and nothing more—
except it were to be of occasional use
as an escort. This enlightened view of
the functions of a parent is opt to result in a depressing dulness to tbe
parent; so when Mr. Vavasour heard
a cheery voice behind him asking him
how he did, it was with a glad sense
of relief that he turned to greet the
new comer, who was a friend and fel •
low magistrate. Miss Vavasour sIbo
recognized the tones for Mr. West's,,
but she remained standing coldly aloof :
for, universal favorite as George West
was, he was none of here.
"Glad to have met you! Oome wit li
me, and III show you the finest pot,,
toes yon ever set eyes upon," cried Mi.
Vavasour, linking his arm within thnt
of George West.
"One moment!' said his friend.
"You ought to know Mr. Ralph Irving,
as he is to be your neighbor at the
Hearing whioh scrap of information,
Miss Vavasour knew the young man,
who stood a foot or two off beside
Adela West, George's young sister, to
be the recent purchaser of one of the
finest estates in the county, and
therefore blest with a good fortune
and position in the world, as well as
with a handsome person.
"Well, Irving," said West, after the
further greetings had been mode, "are
you coming with us to look at   the po
"You hear your .barge, I hope, Mi»s
West; and are I'leprin-I to fulfil it
"Ves," she nr-wired,  giving   him a
pleasant smile      I suppose,   she added,
turning kindly   lo    Maud   Vara-ii.ur,
we are all to true   are of one auotlii-i.
--Mr. Irving: Misa Vavasour."
After the ceremony at   introduction
the thn e sauntered on,Irving between
the twu young ladies but ever, as the
minutes passed, he turned inoie nnd
more often to at- nl n glance at the
beautiful face of Miss Vavasour,whence
now all the haughty indiflereiue, the
repellent coolness had fall- n away, as

What a vciv dioll scene, barring the
wbules.ilc daughter, a modern battle
field will l-e ! Officers, with gieat im-
| mrnse telescopes, watching ibe enemy
five miles off, placing his great guns in
position ; orderlies on bycicles spinning
from point to jxiint giving directions as
to the direction in which the melinite
bomhs are to be fired, or where the
Oreek fire is to be drop|>ed on the
enemy. As for cavalry in theie days of
horse-eating propensities, thev will be
looked upon as a god-send, and the
greatest care will be taken to kill the
most horses in order to provide beef for
the camp. The impression was prevalent a short time ago that lhe movements of armies would be very rapid,
and their actions, aided by telegraphs
and telephones would be the work of an
hour or two. This appears to us, to be
all a mistake; railways will now have
to be constructed before a battle can be
fought in order to bring up the big
guns and the awful big cannon balls or
bombs with whteh they are to be
loaded. An Irishman was said to have
desired a portrait to be painted of himself, "unseen behind a tree.'' The
next battle scenes will be painted without any soldiers; there will only be big
guns with long ropes, attached to
patent fuses, supposed to be held by
some one behind a mountain. We are
told that by the new process, the enormous guns carrying shot half a ton in
weight, can be loaded by one man concealed in a hole ! If they go on making big guns and using such very large
shot, it will be a matter of consideration
as to how many tons of old iron can be
sold after the conflict. The generals in
future will decide upon the spots where
the guns shall be placed and having
seen them in position and plenty of
ammunition handy, take the train for
the nearest town and then—take dinner.
Rivers in future will afford no defense;
in fact hy an odd application of a term,
they will be the " battle fields I The
armies will, of course, keep far enough
in the rear, but the big guns will be
planted on the river bank and made to
bang away at the big guns on the other
side, lor there will be nothing else in
view. How such a battle is to be decided is the great difficulty, unless the
fellow gives in that has not another
"shot in his locker," This no doubt
is very funny but the poor folks who
have to pay for it all will hardly be able
to me the joke. There, for instance, is
France, building barracks on the extreme verge of her lot, to put soldiers
into ; then there is Germany building
right against the fence, barracks for her
soldiers. Well, the chanees are that
some Frenchman may throw his potato
peelings into the next lot and then there
wili be a row. Really, after all, a good
lawsuit, unsatisfactory as it is to everyone but the lawyers, is better than these
expensive big gun fights, and if there it
any difference about a province or two
they had better try the Court of Equity;
by the time they got through the action
at law neither would care much about
the " bit of land." 'lliere is every appearance, nevertheless, of hostilities in
the spring and we don't see how they
can be averted. The best way is to let
them have a bit of a scrimmage and then
go in and separate them ; they will be
sulky for a time hut the chances are,
after feeling one another's hard knocks
they would make up their minds to devour some small state between them
and then proclaim themselves "the
fittest." The odor of the " sick man's"
heritage has long been a tempting morsel, but like a lot of big dogs collected
round a bone, no one dare seize on the
prize, for he knows that all the rest
would be at him in a moment. Every
suspicious movement or approach tothe
viand, whether intentional or not on the
part of any one of the dogs, produces
growls from all the rest. If a knowing
dog amongst them could set all the rest
by the ears, he might "bone" the prize;
but after all he would have an ugly job
to defend it; so H is very probable that
it will remain a bone ol contention for
all time. At present we hear of nothing but preparation. We have seen two
men prepare for a fight who did not
seem hard to persuade to go home before hostilities commenced.

vnlved, he is often coni|ielled to associate with company that he would otherwise avoid, and pretend to accept opinions which are repugnant to his l-ctter
instincts. Hut these gentlemen have
no idea of the quagmires they will be
compelled to traverse or the amount of
odium they will require lo bear, as followers of the Government. It is quite
natural to suppose that ihey have not
yet acquired sufficient knowledge ol
their leaders or their antecedents, to
form an opinion ; they only know that
these leaders have been members of the
Government for the last four years and
during lhat time had a strong majority
in the House. They have not mixed
with the rank and file sufficiently to be
able to judge of them as they will do,
after a little more experience. They
don't know anything about the Port
Simpson grab of odorous memory;
they don't know that all attempts to investigate the matter, were always voted
down. They don't know anything of
the Kootenay Bill or how it was forced
through the House; how the promoters
were allowed to go from member to
member on the floor of the legislative
Hall during the debate, and how one of
their own party irom feelings of shame,
was compelled to call attention to the
fact. They don't know how the bill
was lobbied and how all scruples on
the part of the members were removed
in a satisfactory manner by those
charged with the passing of the bill.
Much more could be said on this affair
which might alarm the honor of a gentleman, but we reserve onr material for
a later period when the provisions of
the bill will most likely be discussed, if
there is any attempt made to extend
the lime allowed for the construction of
the railway. These new members have
yet to learn much about the true inwardness of the Settlement Bill and the
shocking blunders or corruption, or
both, which surround this infamous
measure. How the coal and other
minerals of the island were given to
Huntington, Crocker & Co., with seven
hundred and fifty thousand dollars in
cash as a bonus. How the Canadian
Pacific railway lands en Hoc were given
to the Federal Government, instead of
everv alternate block, and how the
minerals were not reserved to the Province ; how, what we have every reason
to think will be, the vain attempt to retrieve the minerals, is costing much
money in expensive law proceedings to
the unfortunate Province, and creating
a great deal of irritation between the
two Governments. How not conceiving they had not done enough in this
nefarious transaction, to deprive the
Province of lands and minerals, they
gave to the Dominion Government
three million five hundred thousand
acres of most valuable land at Peace
River, for which there is not even nominal consideration. How, in defending
themselves against criticisms on these
shameful transactions, these valuable
ministers made statements that would
bring shame to the cheeks of most men,
and then voted down all opposition attempts at investigation. The new members have yet to learn that the ministers,
amongst them, passed a land act which
was supposed to cover many of their
extraordinary transactions in the way of
handing over the public domain to Bill,
Jack or Tom; but more particularly,
the gift of six thousand acres at English
Bay, to the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company or to some other persons said
to be trustees for them ; but the land
act was disallowed at Ottawa, and the
transfer of the land at English Bay, was
illegal. We are aware that this disgraceful prostitution of office, being part
of a scheme to make money at a place
called "Vancouver," was supported
and encouraged by people of influence,
some of whom are members of the present House. In these days, when principle and honor are cast aside in favor
of the readiest means of making money,
rectitude and justice will be laughed at,
while a majority of the people's representatives in the Legislative Chamber
is ready to aid the speculators for a
consideration. But members should
bear in mind that the majority in the
House, does not represent the majority
of the people ; that corruption and impunity may meet with a sudden check,
and the baseless fabric of speculation,
at the public expense, may be thrown
to the ground. The heartless and unnecessary sacrifice ofthe property holder! at Port Moody and the great lost
inflicted on the Province in consequence,  must always reflect upon the
buycis of lots   and tt

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ and the
Reichstag acting conjointly In pursuance
of this current view of constitutional construction, the article of the German Constitution, providing that an ariny sh'dl he (jiven
the empire "by law," has been assumed to
mean that the three elements of the imp-rial
legislature must unite in the creation if
military force. Bismarck has r.eemcd to ac*
qttlwouin this interpretation, having twice
requested a majority of the Gt.ri._an House
or (.'oimnona to sanction the septenoate, nr
regulation of the army budget for i-even
years iu advance.
Now, on the other hand, he seems to pro
EBond the startling theory—which forms, ay
»r. Windthoflt Haiti, the crucial distinction
of an absolutist from a constitutional gov-
erniuent-that tho as-sent of a pari!
majority is not essential to espenrliiuie for
national defence. For hu snys that thr executive would be "fully eotttud to demand
the fixing of an efTectivnarmy in peri
The inference is that, if the Kaiser is. "fully
entitled," to make n demand uf th
would bo justified in arbitrarily enforcing it
should it be rejected by the people's ttprt*
Bcntatives. That i._, we need not nay, precisely the view taken of (he English Conati*
tution by Lord Strafford, and for which he
suffered on tho block. If Biamarck means to
abide by this conception of the Emperor'u
powers—and lie (-.peak* aa if he meant to
carry out the implied threat unflinching!;) —
it is but too plain that the subjects oi the
German empire possess no ccngtitu.ional
rights in tho historical and accepted tneun-
of the words.
tut even Bismarck shrinks Irom tilling
the German people in plain w. ids that their
Reichstag is n sham, and he hopes to escape
such an av.iwal through success in tho approaching elections. Any ;i ch expert ition-s
must be founded on the belie! that h*> can
wrest at least a score of seata from tho so-
called party of tlie Centre, which constituted
the strongest section of the opposition in the
Reichstag. What his grounds are for counting on aueh a scr.sible impairing of Wind*
thorst's forces were revealed recently in the
Landtag, when he intimated that the Vatt-
can did not approve of the course recently
pursued by the German Clericals—a tact of
which, he said, the voters will he made
aware before the elections begin* It ha«
often been asserted by Dr. Windthotst's
enemies that he is a Guelph nt hesrt anrl a
Catholic from policy, and that tha laat thing
he desired was a cessation of the Kultur-
kampf and the complete reconciliation ol
Prussia with the Pope. If it be trim that !

The Foreign News.—In spite of all the
efforts of Govermenti and stock jobbers to
ilispel the alarm of war, felt on every side,
th-re enn be very little doubt, of hostilities
commencing aa so»n as the weather permits
of the rapid movement of troops, and safe
navigation by ships of war. The effects of
the conflict, although confined to the continent of Europe, will appear all over the
world. No harbor or place where supplies
und refits can be obtained, will fail to profit
bv the naval expeditions In every ocean.
We firmly believe that if the war extends as we antiuip'-ti, a great change
will take place at Port Moody. Its un
equalled harbor so well sheltered, so
easily rendered unapproachable by an
enemy,   so favored   in relation to its water

! tables c in be obtained, aa also, poultry,beef,
| mutton, ke. In the case of captured prizes,
i there could be no better place to put them
thau in the North Arm, and it may be that
the Imperial Government will coustruct the
graving dock at Bedwell Bay, planned long
ago. We need hardly point out to our
townspeople, the  great future before them.

.uu! .A a-mington eoirespondent will tell
yaa no doubt of lhe war talk in the Senate
thia week and the threats of Seoator lngalls I
of Kansas aud Riddleberger of Virginia who \
were the most ferocious of the senators io
their Unguage. indeed Kiddleberger refused to vote at all l-ccau*. the .ery strong
resolutions were too wwk for him. Whal
In required wu BritUh ^uie ami pleuty of
it. I may mention tint tlmse two are the
Ml gintlumeu tint BMOSSd tin dynamite
bill of .Senator Kdinuudalast fwot. The re
tahatory bill intn-duced by iViry Belmont
in tin- House of Representatives was still
stronger but I Ulieve the President will
accept the senate measure iu preference.
The meauiug of the senate bill is that the
President is empowered to adopt letaliatory
measures on Canadian shippiu-*. Belmont
bill provides lor uon-iiitvreourae between the
two countries and the exclusion of Canada
trom American railroads, a proceeding which
would be oa injurious to the United States
aa to Canada. In Kngland, In Canada and
iu the CuitedSUUa the proceedings in the
senate are looked upon aa a combination of
the practical and the jocular in politics but
with a largo preponderance of the latter
elemcut. Nevertheless it is possible that
war may arise from the hill, though highly
improbable. There ia amoug the fishermen
of Maine and MansachueseU a (eeliug that
the water lxdongs to them aa well as the
earth .mil 'imong the owners there is a desire
for n-vr-ngr on account of their late loaaea
through tlie action of the Canadian cruiaers.
In a letter of a year or ao ago to tbe (juait-
lit as, I mentioned that there was a talk
among the fishing ahip owners to arm MOM
of their vessels and by resisting capture
bring about a war betweeu America uud
(jrcut Britaiu which would result iu the
annexation of Canada. Not haviug received
encouragement from Congress the idea waa
abandoned but they may see in the resolutions theii opportunity. There is u strong
aod growing party in this country which does
uot like the action of the senate whether intended as a bluff or iu earnest. It is the
labor party. The House of Uepresentativvs
is composed of very wealthy men who, under
the present threatening aspect of the aocial
party, would dearly like to increase the
army and navy, especially the army. There
is a disposition among wealthy meu all over
to raise the State militia as much as [tossible
against strikers, and it is even hinted they
would like to convert that body into something like a standing army. Iu lieu of such
a force the great railroad kingj employ a
force they call Pinkerton detectives, swear
them in aa special constables arm them with
rifles and send them from state to state aa
strikes l>ecome serious. The labor party
cry out against such a force and as thoae
flying soldiers have killed a lew people in
their fright and state of uudiscipline, there
isa general outcry against them. It is evident that a .State militia at the behest of the
capitalists would be a great improvement ou
this state of things and that they are secretly
rejoiced at the senate resolution which may
permit an insidious change and that the
labor party  are correspondingly   depressed.
Iu Canada the people are not in any way
discouraged by the bill aud the people of
Nova Scotia are just as bellicose as their
kindred of Maine. What effect it will have
on the coming eb ction remains to be seen. It
must be confessed Sir John's prospects look
gloomy enough just uow but the chieftain is
not cast down. Despite the many rumors in
the air aliout his collapse, he is bracing himself up for the fight and is engaged reconstructing his Cabinet.
Tho coal handlers strike is spreading, the
miners havu struck, the long shoremen, the
pilots, the stevedores, the retail shipper*,
all who handle coal have Btrucken and now
there are 50,000 out. The great steam ships
nre lying at the wharves for their supply
and the people are at the mercy of the retail
dealers. It muBt soon come to an end I
bhould think, and the sooner the better.
Father McClynn still refuses to goto
Rome and it is reported several of his assist
nut priesta are iu sympathy with him. His
parishioners besiege the church every day
insult his succeasor. Father Donnelly and
abuse Archbishop Corrigau and Cardinal
Simeoui and the Propoganda and the rest of
"them Italians." It looks like tbe beginning
of a revolt of the Irish against Rome.
Michael Davitt, the famous Irish agitator
spoke to 10,000 people in the Madison
Square Uardens on Monday night and de
nounced Simeoui in a manner that was as
original as it was refreshing. The inter
pollatinns of tho audience showed the spirit
of revolt. Such cries as "Cardinal Mac*
caroni," ''down with Tyranny," "Religiou
from Rome but no politics" were vocsferi*
ously applauded. Prominent Irishmen from
a distance sent letters endorsing Father
McOlynn's action aud it is said the Propa
ganda realize the mistake Archhiahop
Corrig,.ii has made.
Parliament haa met and Lord Randolpl:
has made his explanations. His speech fell
flat on the House. Mr. Goscheu ahaa been
defeated for Liverpool hy seven majority
It is a great blow to the Conservatives win

The mercury in the war barometer oi

woman's belt isnatorls] Friend, had promised to mako an effort to get the question
up for deii.ite at this hour. The pet measures
of several senators were in the way as unfinished businebs, but they galUutly voted
against their owu bill in favor of the ladies.
Senator Beck was oue of these, He had intended to bring up his bill preventing members of Congress from acting as attorneys for
railroads, and he mentioned that a distinguished lady (Miss Anthony) had sent iu
for him three times the day liefore, and he
had refused to go uut to see her because he
knew he would be unable to refuse what she
would ask. He knew she would ask him to
waive the claims uf his important question
in favor of hers.
The women are not asking Congress to let
them vote, as Congrats has not that power.
They usk Congress to agree that tlie following proposed amendment to the constitution
may be submitted to the various State
Legislatures. "The right of citizens of the
United States to vote shall not be denied
ou account of sex. Congress shall have
power, by appropriate legislation, to enforce
the provisions of this article,"
Half-a-dozen Senators made short speeches
for aud against woman suffrage, ami then,
by a vote of M to 10, the proposed amendment was again rejected. The disappointed
ladies in the gallery repaired immediately to
the Metropolitan Church, where they opened
their nineteenth annual convention in Washington. There they discussed man in general and the law makers of the United Btatei
iu particular in language suitable to their
outraged feelings.

was no telling how long ahe would have to
Mrs. Shattuck, of Massachusetts, who is
a fine speaker with a fine voice, thinks it
will be at least twenty years before all th
women of the United States will be able to
vote. She divides the women who do not
want to vote into six classes: First, the
prejudiced ; second, the unimformed ; third,
those who are ufraid of their gentlemen
friends; fourth, thoae who always shrink tmm
their duties ; fifth, those who shrink from
new duties because they fear their inability to
perform them well, and sixth, those who
fear the influence of the hallott on Unmoral
classes of women, and who think there is too
much voting already.
She gave an eloquent account oi the good
women are doing in temperance, in labor

Puring winter the peasants of the northern provinces of Russia arc transformed
into hunters and supply the two capitals
with enormous quantities of feathered aud
fur game, captured chiefly by means of nets
;md snares.
Simultaneously with this supply of lo.nl
St. Petersburg aud Moscow received the furs
of Siberia furnished mainly by the squirrel.
The Zyriaus, a wild people dwelling along
the banks of the Pete I ior u, are peculiarly expert in capturing these little animals. In
certain years thoy appear iu such vast
quantities thnt the village roofs throughout
Viatkaarc seen to swarm with them, aud
even in ordinary years the single district of
Sloboibk sends to market 300,000 skins.

Under the beading of "Napoleon's

ppcarcd iu our issue for August 20 last, a
correspondent writes as follows to the Pall
Mall Oa-.' [te ;— "Having read iu youi columns
about a fortnight since, an interesting reference to the violet as the favourite flower
ol Napoleon 1., 1 forward to you the account
ol a little colored print which bus been in
the possession of our family since about 1821.
It represents a small bunch of violets, iu
whieh may Im; traced the profiles of Napoleon and ftaria Louise watching over then
infant child. Underneath it is stated thnt
the print is a correct copy of the original,
which was published at Paris. The copy
was published by Wullia, of Loudon and
Sidmouth. but no date is given. The following account is placed in type lie low the
print, iiini is headed 'Corporal Violet':—
Buonaparte having, on his departure for the
lslnud of Elba, promised bis confhlental
friends to return in the violet season, bis
adherents adopted the above simple flower
as a rallying signal. "Corporal Violet" became their favourite toust, and each was distinguished by a gold ring with a violet in
enamel, aud the motto, llElte reparaitra an
pniitfinptt /*' As soon as it became generally
known that be had landed at Frejtis, a
multitude of the women of Paris were seen
with baskets full of these flowers, wbicb
were purchased and worn by his friends,
without exciting the least suspicion. It
was customary on meeting anyone thus
decorated to ask, "Amiez-eou* la violetler"
Wheu, if they answered "Owi," it was certain the party was not a confederate. But if
the reply was "ih //»'»," tbey recognised an
adherent, and completed the sentence, "A'tfr
n}-irttitra an printrmps,'" ' The following
lines were written on a scrap of paper which
haB been kept with the print, but 1 know
nothing of the origin : —

Another great navigable tributary of tlie
(iiugo, which it joins on the right bank at a
point between the Ohange and the Lioona,
lias been discovered. It is called the Sekoli,
and was  discovered  by an   expedition that,
',iitin- from Madiville ou the Ogowe, pro
needing iu '> north northeasterly direction
for four weeks, journeying with tbe greatest
difficulty through thick forests and jungle.
In latitude I. dogree 30 minutes N. tbey
came on a river which the natives called
Sekoli. at a point, as they uftei ward learned,
about oue degree south of its course. Proceeding further, they came into the district
of the dambis, who showed thomselves so
hostile that the explorers considered it safer
to return. They again struck the Sekoli,
which they determined to descend ; but the
intivi*- refused to -ell them boats, so they
had to make some small l>oats for themselves. The voyage down the river occupied
six weeks. The rivei they found is known by-
different names in different putts of its
course. It Rows at first in a direction from
west to east, and then bends southward.
About the equator it receives on its right
bank a considerable tributary, the Ambtlli.
The water is brackish at thia point ; indeed,
the soil all around is impregnated with aalt,
whioh is gathered by the natives, and forms
an article of trade for them The country
abound*- in large game, wild oxen, antelopes, elephants, hippopotami, ote. Below
the equator, the southerly direction becomes
more decided. The river is between 500
and fiOO meters broad, and has many
islnuds. In the lower portion of its course
it flows through immense grans plains,
which feed vast numbers of wild cattle, antelopes and elephants. But the navigation
is impeded by the hippopotami. The human
population is very thin. At last the expedition reached the Congo. At the confluence
there is a great '.delta, almost opposite the
former station of LukoleU. The discovery
of the Sekoli   has added   about 600   kilo-

The " grt'iit mn'-, " of the earth have been
justly designated an such for having achieved
ends and objects unattaincd by their fellow-
men. If wc trace the rise and progress of
them, we shall see, that not only has their
success been owing to a new idea or original
suggestion, but in a far greater measure to
the systematic mode of carrying out the pro-
ji'Cts. anil bringing them to a successful
issue. In no inntiiin-n has this fact been
more truly cxomplihYil than in the career

two articles, with the simple cognomen of
Holloway's Pills and Holloway's Ointment, arc kept pcipctually in the hand and
within the reach of one in evory hundred of
a community, and that community contained
in no less limits than the circle of the earth's
broad surface. Now this is not only accomplished, but ilomr with ease and harmony
withal; these almost ubiquitous remedies,
cullod originally (as we have bcon assured)
from the vegotoble productions of that sail
which gave us birth, or moreover so compounded, from careful study and research,
as to act with divers tendencies, but won-
dorful unity nf uffect; tho individual properties of Holloway's 'medicines become
paottti nmrtive, to suit the exigencies of the
case, the Pills containing lioth tonic, as well
as detergent qualities, develop the one or
the other, as the symptoms nf the patient's
case may demand, the Ointment being an
"expellent" as well as a healing application,
takes a similar mode of attaining the desired
end, thus mutually assisting nature to cut
off the common enemy, and subduing tbe
temporal reign of fell disease.
Much more could be said on tbis point
than can come within the scope of tbis short

Queen Olga of Oreece has a small but
graceful and well-formed figure, with hands

Athens adore her for her large sympathies
and gentle charities.
The custom of rice throwing at weddings
resulted in an accident at Firsby, near
Spilntiy. The horses attached to a fly were
started by the rice thrown, and the vehicle,
coming in contact with a gravestone in the
churchyard, was upset. The driver and the
brother of the bride were thrown from the
box seat, and the latter had his leg broken.
The bride and bridegroom escaped unhurt.
According to a German geographer, the
average height of Europe may be estimated

One of the greatest enemies of the salmon
and tho salmon fisheries in Oregon is the sea
lion. It is estimated that half the salmon
that come into the Columbia River in the
early part of the season are captured by these
big beasts, which also damage nets to tho
amount of thousands of dollars. Vast, numbers of them congregate at Tillamook rook
and at Sealrocks, and it is suggested that
dynamite be used to force them to seek
other localities.
Although the production of lead pipes has
commonly bcon regarded of quite modern
origin, there appears to be evidence that the
Romans were acquainted with the artiele,
without, however, possessing the appliances
for fabricating anything of Large dimensions
or sufficiently strong to withstand pressure
from the fountain head. In the Cherchel
museum is a piece of lead piping made by
rolling a sheet of metal, turning the edges
over, and then running molten load along
the joints.
At the regular Monday meeting of the
Methodist ministers of Baltimore there was
a long and heated discussion over the following resolution: "Having read in the daily
papers that some ladies of the city are making arrangements for a charity ball to raise
f iiiuIh for the poor; therefore, be it resolved,
that we hereby decidedly condemn such
methods, and hope the ladies will hereafter
abandon them." After much talk this resolution waa defeated and a much milder one
waa substituted, stating that the meeting
waa opposed to balls and dances, and requesting the ministers to aak their members not
to take part in any held in the name of
Wong Afoo, the bright-eyed China lad
whom Mrs. Langtry brought east from San
Francisco two yeara ago, haa returned home,
and haa already been interviewed by the
San Francisco Chmnicle, which says : "When
the duties of the stage required Mrs. Langtry 's presence Wong Afoo went to the
theatre, but in what connection his duties
were utilized in the green room Wong is not
willing to state, neither will he lift the veil
which enshrouds the Lily's surroundings.
The boy, who is about 16 years of age. is
now engaged pursuing his studies in a far
different atmosphere than that in which he
was accustomed to in the Lily's residence in
New York city."

Holloway's Pillt,—The chief wondor of
modern times.—This incomparable medicine
increases the appetite, strengthens the
stomach, cleanses the liver, corrects biliousness, prevents flatulency, purifies the system,
invigorates the nerves, and re-instates sound

incidental to tbe human raee. They are a
blessing to the afflicted, and a boon to all
that labor under internal of external disease.
