smiled a littlo strangely when he  read
this invitation,   but he   wrote a
polite reply and accepied it.
Once more he sat in the stately old
baaqueting-rooin of the fort. This
time he liad not walked in from the
bleak east end of the town, but had
been driven from the Castle in the
chariot of the Castle's owner. But, as
In; took his seat in the chair of honor,
he noticed that every foce at the table
was, iu all ns changes, familiar to him.
All of the guests at the former dinner
were not there. Many of those, indeed
lie well knew, were sleeping on battlefields fai away Hut noliody was at

"Once more the dishes were removed
and tht servants withdrawn. The
guest of this evening was no wonderful
story-teller, like the good old Genera]
who had now passed to his rest.
Colonel Hanson hud been shy, and he
even let the conversation Hag and never
•seined to notice it.
"'Colonel,' aaid the eldest gentle
man ofthe party, speaking with visible
effort, and giving a slight cough to veil
his embarrassment: 'Colonel, I think
we all remember another time when
we dined together here.'

" His composure was exceedingly disconcert ing. Another gentleman, feeling
that the  lirst had done  his part, now
took up the parable.
"' It was fouud in the very chair on
which you are now seated, Colonel.' he
said. ' You will remember tbat the
General sat there ou that night. It
niusl have found its way bai I; to the
General's own band, and in (he interest
and excitement of his own story-telling, he must have intended to alip it
back into his pocket, which, if you recollect, was the first place where he
sought it. Instead of that it evidently
escaped the proper oriliee, anrl dropped
into tin- covering of Ihe chair; thut

heartily for showing ma yonr brotherly

" At the bottom of the table sat the
spiteful old Major (he was on half pay
now, and more spit, ful than ever), and
bethought within himself that there
was no knowing whether Ensign Hansom had not taken some subsequent op
portunity of getting rid of his dangerous booty into the hole in the damask,
and that the mystery could not be
called cleared up unless the Colonel had
explained «liy he had demurred to ihe
search. And" this spiteful old Major
would have said aa much to his next
neighbor, if he himself had not been so
teriibly deaf that he could not regulate
his own voice between a confidential
whisper and a mighty shout.

I'HE CONSERVATIVE VICTORY.
can be   placed   on   the   sensationally
headed columns which  purport to give
the latest news.   The |iosition in Euroiie,
judging from the few grains of wheat lobe
gathered from the mountains of chaff in
the pa|>ers, presents almost precisely the
same threatening ,-ip]>earam:e we noted
two or three   months ago, but nothing
more,    it may be that the attention of
the  powtll  is directed   more to the
I lanulie  than  the Rhine, and   |>eoplc
now look  for the first  conflict  un  the
frontier of Russia.    If we could believe
tonic of the late published  despatches,
wc might conclude that Russian  agents
were busy in Bulgaria endeavoring to
pave the   way for the   armies   of the
Ciar.     The  idea would appear to be
that of securing the I fantibean fortresses,
and thus ensure for the Russian troops,
juariers on  their arrival,  and a  lodgment from  which  they could  not be
easily  ejected.     Attempts   have   been
made at Silisuba   Rustchuk and  elsewhere, but  they appear to have  failed
in every  instance.    No doubt, the object is to furnish the Czar  with the old
excuse to intervene in order to suppress
the   disorder  which his   agents  have
created, but the tiick is so well understood now, that the pretext  will not be
accepted by the olher treaty  powers.
Appearance, would, also, lead us to believe   that  the Czar has  just as little
faith in the  assertions ol   Bismarck  as
this latter  has  in the pretenses  of the
Czar.     The Iron Chancellor  has been
asserting that he has no interest  in the
Balkans   and   would   not   sacrifice a
single German soldier for the whole of
the peninsula.      The Russian Kmjieror
is  so accustomed to duplicity that he
accepts the  statcments.of Bismarck at
the value accorded to his own assur
ances.    This is quite evident from the
disposition of the Russian troops which
are  now  massed   in  large numbers in
Russian Poland, and on the borders of
Austrian Poland,  in Callicia.    As on
the Rhine the massing of French troops
have drawn, by way of a  set of, large
bodies of Oerman troops,  so  on the
Polish frontiers,  Oerman and Austrian
armies are being assembled.    A large
Russian  force has been collected  in
Bcsserabia for a  long lime, wafting the
uuuui, ue'inrown upon *Ri      Vnia and
Bulgaria when a favorable opportunity
oflcrs.     However threatening  appear
ances may be at the moment, there is
no evidence of any intention  to move
at the present  lime.    The chess board
is pretty well  covered  with the pieces,
large and  small, but lhe precise point
of attack  has nol  lieen developed.    It
is quite possible that the movements on
the frontiers  of Affghanistan have not
been sufficiently advanced, and until all
is ready, no forward movement will be
made,    'i'he  object is, wc presume, lo
make a simultaneous advance in several
directions at the.same lime, with a view
lo throw  the  greatest amount of  force
on the |ioinl  that yields  ihe most to
pressure.      Il   will   lie  a  great   battle
fought   with   millions of   men, at the
same lime, in widely separated parts of
the world ; and, as in the case of a single battle  field, the lorces will be dis-
|x»cd   in  sin-hwise  as  to be the most
efTctlive.     As  the  plot   devetopM,   it
hxiks as if Fiance and Russia had made
up their minds  to secure the complete
domination ot the world,  and this Ihey
could effect if they can jointly crush lhe
two   central   powers      Cermany   and
Austria.    Having   finished   this part of
tbe  business satisfactorily, tbey   would
then  turn  on   England,  and,   in   the
meantime they seek to weaken "|ierfide
Albion " by prodding her in  the most
remote parts of her empire.    France is
doing ber  best  to make mischief in
Egypt, while  Russia   is  fomenting disturbances   on   the   borders  of India.
The ill-starred   foreign   policy of Gladstone will cost England many thousands
of valuable  lives and many millions of
money to  defend  her  Indian empire,
which might all  have been saved if the
policy of Beaconsfield had been carried
out.    Talk and sentimentality are very
good weapons for old maids and hypocrites, but  when Russians and French ■
men are to be dealt with, another kind
of handling is  required.    So  far, England assumes a perfect altitude of tranquility,   intently watching   the   movements of the other parties to the game.
She merely suggests a move  now and
then,   but reserving  all her best pieces
for  the  critical   moment   when action
becomes a necessity.    I'he foresight of
Beaconsfield   in securing Cyprus for a
base, in   connection with possible invasion of I'm key by Russian troops from
the camps  around   Kars and Batoum,
will be  strikingly exemplified at a later
l>eriod.       It  will,  very probably,   be
the  great  point  of concentration   for
About a fortnight ago, we received a
special telegram fixing the majority for
the Conservative  party at  forty.    This
conclusion could only have been arrived at after a careful  survey of the
ground, aided by an intimate knowledge
of the  political  feelings in the various
localities and a true estimate  of Grit
boasting and  misrepresentation.     It is
unnecessary lo detail here,  our reasons
for withholding  the despatch from the
public,  but one reason, we may state
—it  was to see how far the Grit daily
paper published  in this city, would go
in iis usual mendacious course, and to
convince the public  of its *>erlcct un
trustworthiness.      The  figures of  our
correspondent  may be a little above or
below the exact  result of the returns,
but it is wonderfully correct when it is
rememl)ered that very few of Ihe elections  were heard from  when tbe telegram was sent off. The people throughout the Dominion  will  be very glad of
the result, not  because of the extreme
virtue and  high moral  rectitude of the
Conservative party,  but because of the
incapable,  unreliable and   shifty character ofthe Grit party.    To have placed
the 'Irits in power at the present crisis
woulu have been to endanger the status
of the  Dominion  and   very   possibly
bring about complications which would
have required  many years lo rectify if
ever that was achieved.    No one doubts
that  the Conservative  party alone, was
capable of threading the very tortuous
path that American and European politics have prepared for us, and, however
we  may object  to certain  acts of the
late Government, we are compelled, as
true  patriots,  to shut our eyes to their
faults,  in order thai the Conservatives
may preserve our national prestige.    Of
one fact there can be  no doubt; the
Conservatives are   weaker than   they
were before the   dissolution,  and  we
must be permitted to say lhat we regard
the loss of strength without regret.    The
enormous majority held  by the Macdonald administration before the House
was dissolved,  was  dangerous alike to
the commonwealth  and the Conservative party.     The perfect impunity with
which measures of a more or less questionable charjctgr^could be passed, un-
blind the leaders of tbe party to conse
quences.    We are all proud of tbe great
achievement—the   completion  of  the
transcontinental railway, but we should
all have been better satisfied if we had
seen the (iovernment able and willing
to control the too presumptuous and
overbearing conduct of the company.
We hope that  in the  new Parliament
with  a stronger opposition,  ready to
seize upon and make capital out of the
Government  shortcomings, the Conservative party will see fit to curb this corporation of insatiable  monopolists, and
to discountenance their reckless spent
tion on the  public  funds.    The statement that they have  paid back all the
money advanced to them  by the Government, may or  may not be true,   but
suppqsing they have done so, lhat does
not not absolve them from their obligations tothe people who gave tbem lands,
money and extraordinary privileges, by
which  alone they could  have accom
plished their task.

THE DISTRICT ELECTION.
As we foretold al the commencement
ol the contest, Mr. Chisholm has been
lected. There were quite a number
of reasons why this result was the most
probable. Mr. Chisholm was well and
favorably known ; Mr. Trapp was little
known beyond the limits of this city ;
Senator Mclnnes was supposed lo be
interested in the return of Mr. Trapp,
and from reasons which we are not
prepared to explain, the Senator is nol
popular in this District; the manager
of the local daily was also, supposed to
have something to do with the nomination of Mr. Trapp, and the relationship
to John Robson was sufficient to destroy
anybody's chances of election in New
Westminster. Another great drawback
for Mr. Trapp was the assumption of
temperance apostle for the District, a
dignity that temperance people declined
to invest him with, and absolutely created antagonism amongst the very people that he wished to court for their
votes. The truth is, that since John
Robson advocated temperance and became a Methodist, all faith in would-be
saints ap|*ears to have departed from
our community. It has been noticed
that these •' unca guid " people are
noted for their want of principle and
honesty and are the greatest hypocrites
in the country. We cannot be surprised
then, tbat the association with some
well-known saints here, produced a feel-
added   to   the   Conservative   element
which  is in the ascendant  in this District, made any opponent, of a declared
sup'Kirter of Sir John A. Macdonald,
hold  a  very poor  chance of success ;
very   rare  |>ersonal   attractions   alone,
would  favor   such  a  candidate,   and
those Mr. Trapp did not possess.   Then
we think Mr.   Trapp was handicapped
with the newspajier supposed to be advocating  his  candidacy ;   the   vicious
personal  attack   on Mr. Chisholm and
the   hike-warm   manner   in which   Mr.
Trapp's claims  were placed before the
public,   were bad   enough, and   had
their due effect   in diverting votes that
would otherwise have been given to Mr.
Trapp.    But a very disgraceful circumstance  connected   with the nomination
of  Mr.   McCillivray   by  the  so-called
convention, and the -rabuquent repudiation of their action, by that body, has
placed   on   record   one   of   the must
treacherous proceedings ever known in
tbis   Province.    It  would almost seem
that the majority of the convention and
the manager of the Robson paper, had
ast aside every feeling of decency and
respect  for  public   opinion ; for it appeals, that Mr. McGillivray had written
to the   Robson   daily with  his vindication, and showing the manner in whil h
he had been so shamefully thrown overboard,   but the  manager held back the
letter  for a week,   foi   feat it would in
jure Mr. 'Trapp's chances of election.

GAPS IN THE RAILROAD,
Avalanches in the Selkirks.
Inspectors  without  Wings  Useless.
No Mails.
Kkvklntokk, March 7.
In New Westminster where mind in very
like matter, ye believe that Van Home ia u,
ktitg Mill Abbott a prime minister. A ptlt
of precious uohodioj without power. A-*
commanders of tho mice called men,tliey an
pear to hv dreadful realities, aud remark -
ible at oheeie*>uarere. But look at Van*
Home in tlie Selkirk!*. There lie iMQfltl an
impeluI decree—*' Keep the road open DO
matter what it eo«U." That ukase in not
worth u straw. Th«' avalanche is kiuv; of
the Selkirk.*, an imperial ileatroyer <.f for-
eHts, and a monarch obeyed hy the roouatoin
titi-eains. Ho isauoM his decree and behold I
the .stream that made ft cataract legBd.ng
in ziK*zag lines and in rippling .'rooks. Ten
days ago a wily courtier well known in the
valleys caino "up from the Pacific ocean
through u lODfl line of well wooded vales—
the Indians call him "the fush lefaw " or
hot wind. Ho kimtd the kiny's feet, and
with his hot breftth destroyed the founda-
tion.af a.thotwAetl -AHtWhiiW/BlftiW of
the mighty monarch who rules the streams
and woods in the Selkirk mount-iins.
There was a neaceful calm in the valley;
your corrospomlout was admiring the wilderness of snow and a wooden bridge when
be heard a crash, and looking up he saw an
■iVi'il'iiii'li.' descending ; it wax a broad iiimsk
of snow mingling with the wreeke it had
made; pine trees in it pointing upward:',
pine trees in it pointing tothe depths In1
low, aud two pine trees seated on it look log
like a pair out on a pleasure excursion. The
mighty mass incrcaied on it came ruabing
to thn bridge, and iu a moment it touched
that frail representative of human power,
which went under like a wet feather, and iu
a minute was buried at the very baee of tin1
hill under a million tons of the wreck made
by this destroyer. Vour correspondent had
just time to contemplate the iusignilicamc
of man's handy work when crash went
another of the potentates, a broad breasted
fellow whose feet li.nl been touched by the
hot breath of the rhiuook ; he caine douu
like a wave that g6o* swelling from tim
shores of Newfoundland to the westurn
coast of Ireland, and like the wave it turned
into foam when it crashed Hgain-.t the rook*,
It did uot take away a bridge in passing to
the depths below, becauao there was no
bridge to take, but it mado a gap iu the
rond two hundred yards in width.
My cabin is fixed   iu a dill'as Bolid as the
ro. I. <>f Gibraltar] there li no mow piled
above it OB an inclined plane, it DOlttot uu
der the breast of a perpeudieular rock in the
midst of au awful solitude; hut I mn ijiiite
at home, What; thi extent of the damage
done to thu great road in the Selkirk?! may
be is far beyond my comprebeutiou | but I
verily bidieve that you nood not upeet B
mail from thu east over this road liefore the
first of May. Al thia ood ol the Helkirki
we know that we cannot prooeod by rail to
the east ; at the other end the people know
they cannot come over tim road to the went.
An iM-|i.-i li.'u ia impossible. Au loapaotor
DU enow shoes would be useless if be wen-
nut a ghost. In truth the only inspector bt
to give any account of theroad.lt] the Selkirks now should be supplied with wings
1 provisions for a week. What in to lie
done T I answer—wait. I say that repaiis
to oh' at this season nf the year would be
wa**te. In June the road OftU be re-made,
the avalanches will leave behind theni traces
of destruction to guide engineers, and it la
quite possible that provision for a safe road
can be made next .'ummer. Remember
what  I  tell you   now--THEKK  WTLL BB NO
MAIL OVK._ THIS    BOA.   .'Kt'OKK THB Kilt ST  OF
May. Beef is scarce, in fact, it is nearly all
bones. Here I met a man from K.amloops
and ho says that half the cattle iu that part
of the couutry have died cf starvation,

THFeY HUNG THE WITXRSS.
An Arkansas lynching party was hanging
a pair of horse thieves iu mjreseo way, when
a buy, aged twelve, happened along, and
they hung him in order that his test-mony
might not be againat them. The Arkansas
method of suppressing witnesses is singular
ly effective,   bnt   will '     '*

discoveries of the age. Could wo give the

following, it would be at onoe recognized as
of authority sutheient to guarantee tbo
truthfuhina*. of uny assertion to which it
might be appended : " If yon ever endured
the agony uf a felon, you uill appreciate the
fact that it can bu cured by woolen smoke.
Place the woolen rag* under an inveitcd
flower-pot, and put coals upon them, or set
them on (ire in some other way ; then hold
the felon over the smoke aud it will extract
the pain. This has been done by a friend of
mine within a week. I assure yuu that iu

peara a paradox, the explanation of w biflh i*
ai followa i—
The iiresent indebtedness of the Canadian,
A ust ralian, and South African Colonie*-
o mounts in round numberi to l'±_!0,iKM>,Ol>0.
These loam may lie taken to have heen contracted, on an average, at lhe rate of A per
cent, interest per annum, hut there is little
doubt that if an Imperial guarantee had
been given, theie loam could hive i-een
raised at 't per cent. The repayment of
loeui falls due at various period**, und they
will in molt iDBtancea be renewed. If an
Imperial guarantee were given the renewal
could probably be eaBily effected at
not more than :. per emit., which,
taking the present ave rag-j rate of interest at only 4 per cent., would amount,
ou a grost debt of £_>()0,<>00(0.)0, to a
saving of £'2,000,000 per annum. I hi
•um, or a portion of it, might l>c applied
to the military aud naval defence of the Kin-
pire, without coating une shilling either to
the Mother Country or her dependem-ies,
and, ui the money would not he the letmlt
of taxation, the intricate question of repr
lentation would not be directly rawed. To
carry ont this proposal, all that would he
required would be the consent of thfl Colonial
to the pausing of an Act of I'arliumeut
authorising the imperial guarantee of the
interest on new loans for paying off tin- existing liabilities of certain specified CotonicH.
If it ahould be thought desirable, the amount
to which the guarantee would apply iu each
case might be limited to a define..' sum, the
advantages of which would he twofold, (ji
the first place, no Colonial Legislature would
consent to auy interference or control in the
contraction of fresh liabilities, as the neoflfl-
ities of each Colony might from time to time
require ; and, in the next place, the Imperial
Kxchequer wouhl be saved from undefined
liability.
Thn saving thus effected might be apportioned between the various parts of the 10m*
pire, according to their needs and the proportion of their contributions tothe general
fund. Possibly it might be found noccasai y
to enter into special arrangements with individual Colonies—one requiring military
uud another naval defence—while the protection of certain coaling stations and military pofts might have to lie specified, hut
theae are matters of detail which could he
easily adjusted from time to time, and could
not well be defined by a hard and fast line,
but would be left to he gradually arranged
between the Home and Colonial Kxecutives,
until the time arrived whon some general
Itepresentative Council could he constituted.

of its discovery is rather curious. I.cdgaid

Morgan gold mine, situated about 20 miles
from Itockluimptou, wheu he found that the
whole mountain for upwards of a mile is
oompowd ol dark ironstone thickly studded
with gold. The mount belongs to six persons
who have formed themselves into un incorporate company with a capital of 1,000,000/..
and taken all the shares themselves. The
quarrying has beeu doue straight onward,
and since tbe work was begun, about eight
mouths ago, although only four heads of
stumps have been used, tbe profit bas
averaged 15,000/. per month. Judging from
present prospects, tbe value cf the mountain
is estimated at 40,000,000/. All the stone in
the neighboi hood appears to be of the same
character as that from which gold in now

ll that there is a peculiar kind of pitch-

THK WAR AT MASSOWAH.
Almost at the door of the arid ami sandy
port of Massowah King .John's Abyssinian
soldiers attack"d arul nearly annihilated recently a considerable force of Italian solJters
'flu- fact is that two battles were onlWhe
most serious of a number of reverses m*int
have receutly beeu inflicted upon the Italian
soldiers and Nubian BashJ-Bu/^t'.ks who
garrisoned Massowah and Italy's three or
four inland posts.
Massowah is an Arab village on the Bed
Sea of littlo importance now, but capable of
much development as tlte nutlet of Abyssinia's products, and as the coast terminus
of a naturally easy and rapid route to Khartoum. Over two years ugo Italy, with
Kngluud'a consent, occupied Massowah, with
the undoubted purpose of acquiring large
territorial righth in Hast Africa. "It we
choose,'' wi id Count Uobilaut in the Italian
Chambcrof Deputies, "to hoist our flag at
new points in the interior, it will not be
haiilcl down again," Thi-*. remark was uot
prophetic. AtSnati, the point on the road
to Kassula where the Italians met their defeat recently, the Italian flag has floated ull
this year, und at laat accounts the Bashi-
Bazouks were about to build a fort there.
Italy happens to be the only European
nation that ib uow trying to push intothe
Egyptian Soudan. Sho has persisted in the
effort to open aud protect the route toward
ka;.:'ala, und has recently received at
Massowah many hides and much ivory from
the Soudan. With the aid of King John of
Abysiiuia she hoped soon to relieve the long-
beleaguered garrison of Kassala, and to connect the world with the rich valley of the
Ataara, whose muddy waters mingle with
the Nile, the source of Egypt fertility,
This is an ambitious and a risky programme, and it is not surprising that it hits
been interrupted. Massuwah itself is well
fortified, but if the Italians pnfeh inland
again from their little peninsula to which
ihey have retreated, we will doubtless receive some more war news from Soudan.
Not only are tho rebel tribes who upheld tbe
hands of Osman Digma hovering around the
road to Kassala to bur the wuy to the Europeans, but King John himself, whom they
have tried to propitiate, mistrusts them aud
fears for his independence if they get iuto
the country uu hh northern frontier.

lodged during my visit to that place in ib(J7
and 1868, From what I could learn, the
great body bf thfl Oermftn troops were reviewed by the Kmperor at l.t-ng t'hanips,
before their entry into Pari*. Instead.
therefore, of the maaa of the troops entering
at ten o'clock, U bad Im.i-ji previously an- ■

o'clock in the itftontOOII that the Koyul

the SaxotiH, with their light-blue coats, who
were -.uccccded by the Bavarian riflemen,
with their heavy uniform uud martial tread.
Afterward followed more of the Uhlans, aud
occasionally a »quad of tbe liismarck cttiras-

and waving plume*!, recalling to miod, perhaps, among the more intelligent French

extorted the admiration ot all military men
by its splendid appearance and wonderful
precision of movement, Next fell into line

which had been massed around the world-
renowned Arc de Triotuphc, erected (and
with what bitter sarcasm,it might be said)
to the glory of the grand army. 1 witnessed

of a friend, Mr. I.'owdiu, of New Vork City,
which wns ut tho head of the Champs Kly-

The extent or degree of the oscillation of
chimneys haa been exactly measured by observation of the shadows cast by the sun
upon the ground. An instance in point is
that of a chimney one hundred and fifteen
feet high anil four feet in diameter externally at the ton, near Marseilles, France, the
oscillations of whicli were ohserved by the
shadow during a high wind to attain a maximum of twenty inches.
An anxious New York tailor who sent bil]
after bill to the home and office of oue of his
backward customers finally hit upon the device of leaving his dun at the Manhattan
Club, where he heard the debtor was a
member. The club's clerk returned the bill
marked "Mr. Blank is dead." On Nor. 1
iu came the bill again. Tbe clerk with a
grim humor, returned it once again writing
ou its faee, "This man is still dead."
Sidney Welsh, an English burglar, recently arrested in Cleveland, was apparently
dead when his cell was visited the other
day. Slaps, shakings, aud cold water failed
to revive him. It was thought that he had
poisoned himself, aud the doctor came with
a stomach pump and Welsh waa emptied.
He still remained dead. By this time the
doctor was led to believe that Welsh was
shamming, bo he gently tickled him in the
ribs aud then the dead mau smiled. But he
had proved himself a remarkable shammer.
Another geographical problem has been
solved. Less than two years ago the Hoyal
Geographical Society of London spent uu
evening debating the <*uestion whether
the Sanpo of Thibet, a river I.oOO miles
long, ii the upper course of the Brahmaputra or of the Irawadi. A dozen Chinese
maps made it a part of the Irawadi system.
Western geographers wero divided in
opinion, and the Mishmi savages made it
very unhealthy for every one who tried to
solve the problem. A while ago Lieut.
Needham followed the Zuyul Chu from tbe
Brahmaputra far east through the Mishmi
country, proving that tho Sanpo could not
very well join the Irawadi, unless it jumped
over or flowed under the Ziyul Chu. Since
then Col. Woodthorpe has visited the bill
ranges just south of Thibet and has seen the
infant Irawadi at its sources. There oan
now be no doubt that the Brahmaputra
River is 1,500 miles longer than some writers
have supposed, and "the everlasting Irawadi
question," as Col. Yule called it, is permanently settled.
In a communication to one of the scien
tilie journals, on the subject of paper and
tlie industries connected with it, M. De
Boutarel presents some valuable data showing the great increase in the quantity of
pens, paper, pencils, kc, manufactured lu
Kurope and the United States alone. According to this authority, the production of
paper, which at the beginning ofthe century
wus practically uothing iu tlte United States
some time sinoe amounted to 000,000 tons
ner annum, and this iiuantity Is just doubled
in Kurope-the value of tho straw, ragu,
and other materials used in the manufacture
of the paper being about tl00,000,000. The
value of all this paper, wheu manufactured,
is estimated at $300,000,000. The value of
tho steel pens annually produced, M, Boutarel Muds, to be not less than $4,000,000.

IMPORTANT.
It is nf the utmost importance that home
good household remedy should be kept within handy reach in case of ualu snd accidental
injury. The most useful remedy nf this
kind la undoubtedly Hagyard's Yellow Oil,
for internal aud external use in all painful
complaints.
When the Vital Current is vitiated
from any cause, scorbutic blemishes iu the
shape of pimples, sores and blotches soon
begin to disfigure the akin. In such a case
the moat effective purifier is Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspep
tic Cure, which expels impurities from the
blood as well as regulates digestion, tbe
bowels, liver and kidneys. For Female
Complaints it haa no equal.
Peter Keider, Buffalo, says : " I was badly bitten by a horse a few days ago, and was
induced by a friend who witnessed the occurrence, to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil.
It relieved tbe pain almost immediately, and
in four days the wound was completely
healed. Nothing can be better for fresh
wounds.
We ore told that   iniraclen   have   ceased.
Possibly they may have l-een (Ilaoontlnitfld Efl
order to give full  scope  to   human   IntelH<
genoe.    Certain it in that the wonderful development** and achievement'-' ai nclence   in
these latter days have rendered direct ■Uper-
naturat in human affair* UHMOSeMfy.    Thfl
is especially true  of  the   improvements   in
Ult'diral .Science.    Two thousand years   ago
Thomah   Holloway   would probably   have
heen deemed a worker   of   mtrsolflfl.      The
cures effected  by   hii Pills   and   Ointment
would have  been considered   supernatural,
Kven now they  arc  looked  upon   aa   marvels ; yet wu know that the medicines whicli
have healed the  sick   in   all   parts   of   the
world are the legitimate fruit*, of profound
thought, unwearied study and research, and
a long scrici of practical experimenta.    It ia
a singular fact, aud oue tliat  estahliflhcH beyond Question Holloway's theory ofa   common origin of   disease,  that  the  pe.ple   of
every country   iu which   hii   medicament1.
have beeu introdtuud have   considered theni
specially adapted to   the  complaints   most
common  in such   country.      The reason i..
that thoy operate upon the diifltsrioai principles in the blood of the pa'ient,   whicli   is
the immediate cause of his   diuorder,   whatever it may he,   and hence   their   effect   is
always salutory.    in Canada   every   settlor
on new land who baa ever tried them in    intermittent or bilious   remittent   fever,   will
aver that there an;   no   diseasei.   iu   whicli
they work such wonders as iu   these.      The
Canadian:, also art; impre»scd with   tho    belief that the cut'ineoiiH  und   glandular   disorders to which violent extreme*, of heat ami
cold render them   peculiarly   subject,   are
more readily  eradicated by   the   Ointment
than any other   diseases   lor   which   it   is
prescribed,      It  is in   evidence,   however,
that just   what   thenc   great   remedies   arc
iloing for Canada,   they   are   doing   fot  all
nations nnder the sun.    It so happens indeed
l hut the ailment-, u]r.n    which  the    prepara
tions excitt. the most direct and powerful influence are   precisely those   which  are   the
chief scourges of British America, ami hence
they seem to be, and iu one sense are,   more
especially   required in that   region   than in
some other countries.    But their unbounded
celebrity, and the enortnom  Inoreass of the
demand for them iu all our colonies, in.ln ntfl
their   value   more   significantly   thau   any
eulogism that we could   bestow.     W itliin a
few years they have   booomfl   itsples Of thfl
medical market throughout North   America.
Tho constant Inquiry for them renders it inexpedient for any drug house or apothecary'.*
shop  to he   without   them.    The   druggi-t
wbo does not keep tbem, make-*, in   ell'ecl, a
tacit admission that he is unacquainted with
tho   wants of Ids   customers,    HisstOekfai
uot merely incomplete: it looks two M»tntlal
articles which   the felok   must and trill   have
from some source or other.
Much popularity as this is the meed only
of superlative ecoellene*, and it plaoes the
-.uporiority of Holloway's ItBHKOIM beyond
all controversy.— The Etontitoner,
