and his affection she had fixed ber

an air of meditation upon his luow.

This message Mr. West had received
the previous evening from his friend,
who had found, by his morning's letters, that it was necessary he should go
up to town with reference to those
shares of which George West had made
mention as a source of trouble. Irving
had left Fleckford expecting that a few
hours in town would suffice to transact hia business ; but in this hou" he
had been disappointed, and'had consequently telegraphed as above to his
host.
"Expect me about six o'clock," West
murmured to himself in quotation.
"Six o'clock ; there is no train arriving
at that hour, Master Ralph, so your
plan is quite parent. You mean to be
down liy the three o'clock train, paying
a little visit en route to the fair Maud.
Well, an unexpected pleasure will
await you there in the presence of your
host, whose loving impatience to behold you again is past control."
At this point his reflections were
interrupted by the entrance of his
lister.
'Oh, George! I did not know you
were here ; I don't want to disturb
you.    I only came to fetch a book."
'•Vou do not disturb me, my dear,"
answered George, whose twenty years'
seniorily made him feel very tenderly
towards Adela : she was aliuoHt as a
cherished, beloved child   to him.    "lie
sides,  I   ara   going   out  directly	
Adela!" he called out, by a sudden
impulse arresting the girl in her retreat : "Adela, is it your opinion that
Irving's case with Miss Vavasour is u
very desperate onel"
"Mr. Irving's case wiih Miss Vava
sour a very desperate one? 1 do not
understand you," Miss West exclaimed
a pang of undefined dread neverthe-
les piercing her heart.
"Pshaw ! do you think his love for
her likely to lie lasting; or is it a sain
pie of soon hot, soon cold !"
"Does Ralph love Maud Vavasour?"
the girl gasped with quivering lips.
"Yes : how stupid you are to-day,
Adela! I spoke to you because men
are not supposed to be sharp sighted
in these matters Hut it is of no
consequence. He told me of his im-
becilily  himself,1'      West   wound   up
somewhat astonished at his friend's,
occupation of his especial citadel -, but
nevertheless shook Ins hand with hearty
pleasure.
"Well, how did you find matters 1"
asked Weal, in reference to|the business he had lieen engagi'd upon. "Better or worse than you had hoped?'
"Agreat dealworse," unswi-redlrving,
quite unaware of how he was playing
into the other's hand. "But urn
need not bore Miss Vavasour with
business."
"Oh !" exclaimed that arch conspirator, West, "I have been telling Miss
Vavasour of your misfortunes, but she
agrees with me that lo us, your friends,
the extent of your means can make no
difference."
Irving was about to laugh ut these
fine sentiments aired on so small an occasion, when something in the expres
sion of Miss Vavasour's f.ce arrested
lum ; and for the first time a doubt of
his beautiful beloved entered his mind.
She had listened in silence to the conversation of the two men, her manner
cold, but one of watchful attention.
"Would my riches or poverty make
any difference    to you, Maud I"
"Of course not," she replied in a
formal tone, that carried quite an opposite conviction to the meaning of her
words to her jealous lover's ears.
Whatever, though, he might have
burst forth with next was postponed bv
an interruption from West. "Well
Miss Vavasour,! cannot wait any longer
for your father. I shall go and look for
him out of doors. If I miss him, you
must tell him that I should have lik

"ile told vou this! Adela asked
in low .ones, and iinning her head
away from the range of her companion's
eyas.
"Yes, and a nice fool 1,-hought him;
and, what is more, 1 told him bo."
There Mr. West came toa stop, for
want of an audience. Adela, wounded, stricken, suffering, had sped from
the room to battle with her anguish in
solitude.
One hour later Mr. West wai descending from his dogcart nt Mi. Vavo
sour's hospitable poitsls. "Is your
master nt home? he inquired of the
servant who opened the door,
"No, sir; he ii out upon the farm,
I believe."
Of course the dear old squire was
pottering about his fields, Mr. West
had quite calculated upon that.
"No one in?" he asked
atingly
"Mils Vavasour is, sir. Will yon
please to step in?"
" I think I will. 1 want to see your
■j-aiter, Wells, if he should return.upon
a little matter of business," said Mr.
Wait affably. And he wai accordingly shown into the drawingroom,
where he found Mils Vavasour seated
alone.
"A better opportunity for my little
bit of practice at the romancer's art
than I could have planned. I know
hat you are no fool, Misa Vavasour ;
but my hope lies in your resembling
many another selfish person
over reaching yourself," war
aional.le thought within West's mind
as he greeted Mil* Vavaaour, and
commenced to gossip with her agree
ably upon the weather and passing
eventa.
After a quarter of au   hour of   such
next, lnsinu-
-l_l_l_l_l_l_l_l_a_a_a_a_._._._^-i_l_l_l_l_l_l_J
to have seen him before   the   meeting
lo-morrow," he exclaimed, in the airiest
style, as though quite nnavare of the
domestic   earthquake brewing.
The door once closed upon his retreating form, Ralph Irvine turned in
passionate Earnest to Miss Vavasour.
"Maud, I insist upon your giving me
a plainer reply thun you did just now,
As a poor man, should I not he the
same in your eyes as though I hnd the
wealth of the [tidiest Answer! don't
keep me in laipense !" he demanded
peremptorily upon Maud's vi-ilile hesitu
lion.
"Then 1 must say that I should
prefer the wealth," shir suid at last,
but she smiled up at him archly, and
shot forth a soft ray from hnr beautiful
eyes.
Irving saw the curve of the red lips,
the glance of the tender misleading
i; and man-like, lie half melted.
Do not play with 018 now, my
darling,'1 her said, beseechingly. "Let
us speak oniy soberest truth."
"Love iu a cottage sounds very well
in a book,' slur cried, pettishly. "Hut,
unhappily in real life, the cottage and
the love arc not all, Thereare also ill
cooked dinners, dowdy bonnets, a one
horse carriage, or no carriage at all,
every kind of disagreeable."
Over living's mind rushed an _u.com.
fortalile recollection of West's phrase :
"The good things that Miss Vavasours
soul loves," For a moment he was
daunted by this confirmation. Imt,
looking at thnt perfect face, the light
and grace of whieh must come from a
noble spirit, his faith revived
"These things would nol weigh v.ith
you against love, Maud I Ik now you
better than you do youixlf.
Hitherto Irving had been seated
beside her on the sofa, bul now, as she
answered not a word to his last appeal,
he cast himself on his knees before her,
and seised her  hands.
"Maud, could you not bear poverty
with me, for my sake ?" he cried, imploringly, while he wrung her hands
hard.
He was only striving to elicit some
spark from tho fire of love : only trying,
more and more desperately, as her
silence shocked and disappointed him, to
wring some word of unselfish feeling
from her, but she saw in this exhibition
of passionate entreaty only a realization
of her worst   fears.
"My bauds I" she exclaimed, with n
little affected cry of pain. "Do you
know that you are crushing the very
bones?"
He saw that she was   endeavouring
to temporize with him,    and   muttered I |1(.r features, in   h
-r- .  . >-•> .u .1 . _?_.,__.   .
that earnest look, which seemed as
though it must pierce to the innermost
recesses of her flimsy heart; but lhe
replied, pouting, 'As a sensible woman
can yon expect me to au wer, No."
"Asa truo woman, I sliould expect
you to uiswer, No," was his stem re
tort.
"Theni sup; iw," sh" said pettishly,
"1 am not ttrm- woman, for 1 could
not say    it."
"You mean that?' he inqjired,
rising to his feet.
"Of course 1 mean it " she answered,
gathering courage and boldness.
"Then hear me ! I thank heavpn
that I have found out before too lat»
the worldly nature of the woman
whom in all the earth I thought most
worthy of reverence. Some misconception seeinstn have arisen ; but mind,
I never misled you, for I never doubted you : I should as soon have doubted
the purity of an angel us yours !" he
cried reproachfully. "To tear you
from my heart now is as the very bil
terness of death to me," he added in
tones that, thrilled with his anguish :
"but to nave found out too late the
calculating colrlii'-ss of your character ;
to have been discovering day after day
the shallow soul, 'lie callous heart of
the woman whom I sho.Id have sworn
to love and trust - this would have lieen
torture intolerable, unendurable indeed.
Farewell never of my own choice
will 1 again look upon your face."

The report* of procei-diugs in the
local House as published iu the
•Colonist" are disgraceful. Here is a
sample copied from Tuesday's issue of
lhat journal.
"The Hon.   Mr.   Kobson   continued
the position he had   previously   taken
"That ia not reporting.    The penny

The reports from all parts of the
upper country proclaim the death of
cattle iu hundreds by cold and starvation. In Chilcotrn and at Crows
liar, Harpers losses are enormous.
Another correspondent who writes
from Cache Creek says :—"More than
seventy per cent, of all lhe cattle
turned oul to feed themselves last fall
will lie dead liefore the 10th of April.
Hundreds have perished, anil it is piti
ful to sec the survivors." A correspondent who writes from Clinton
ought to Ur un tim stall of one of the
Victoria journals. He says—"Harper's
stock are dying iu scoroe. Howie, of
Al tali lake, lost a groat many sheep,
"hut he has them now feeding on hay,"
That is nearly as good as the "ditto"
which in the "Colonist'' represents a
speech.
•luincs C.iilvill,' a stranger quite un
known in this district, invited himself
to appear in the lists as a candidate for
election; bul he lias retired because
"he has noticed iu thr 'Mail' that
Cliisholm and Mcdillivray have, ul the
eleventh hour, declared themselves on
the conservative side." It is tjuile
possible that this egotist bus written a
letter to Sir .lohn Macdonald reminding hiui of the efforts made to bring the
other two into tho conservative fold;
and very probable that Mr. Codville. will
very soon apply for the office of Post
master general at Chilliwhack. But
this Codville. is uol more comical thun

If we may judge by despatches received from all parts of the Dominion
Sir John's Government will have a
majority. And that is good news for
the people of this Province. Without
his railway policy they would be
groping in ibe back woods for twenty
years to come. And they are grateful;
they despise the politicians called grits.
What is the inclining of grit? Is
'ii*it. a Trap'.' or is Trapp a Orit!
A crank, who is the Nicola noire
spondent of the "Colonist" says:—
"Cattle are dying, the outlook is
gloomy, and cats are scarce."
Mr. Higgins, M.PP., who wns
lately editor and proprietor of the
"Colonist" and is provoked by the
waste ol time in lhe local House where
the uneducated representatives of the
people are perpetually puzzled with
"May." liefore the end of the session
he will move to put May's work in the
tire, and adopt an authority more suitable. If May's work had been burned
long ago Smithes palace would be
nowhere now. He was nobody ; but
he read Muy and made the Lilliputians
in the local House liclieve that a person learned in the laws of order win in
dispensable. And therefore he became

The cold in Montana is awful Cattle
have perished in hundreds ; the supply of fuel is nearly exhausted ; three
days ago coal was selling in Fort Benson at §60 a ton. The snow has
drifted iuto enormous piles, and the
people living at the mountain bases are
in imminent danger, threatened by
three terrible foes—the avalanche.cold,
nnd starvation. At Helena, Fort
Shaw, and Assiniboine, the cold is fifl
degrees lielow zero.
Dr. McClynn of New York says:--
"I will teach thn doctrine of common
property in land as long as 1 live."
And the "Tribune" says:—"The Ro
man Catholic Church does not keep a
debating society, but it insists that all
its ministers shall preach approved doctrine. ; and if Dr. MoOlynn wants more
liberty he must go outside where there
is plenty of room. He must obey the
Pope or march out. There is no alternative."
Three Sheriffs, George I/)ckhart,
Ed. Palmer, and Tom King, went out
to the Indian reservation at Navasso
Springs, Colorado, to arrest a native
charged with some trifling offence; he
resisted and Lockhart killed him. In

died with bullets. The Indians then
mounted their horses and rode to Ben

they robbed antl went ofl to the mountains. If the whole tribe goes on tho

On Monday the ice in the river at
Lyons in Mich., formed a great embankment and changed the course of

The "Oregonian " inn leader refers
to that terrible accident on the Vermont Central railroad by which sixty
persons lost their lives, smashed to
pieces in the wreck or consumed to
ashes in tbe burning cars. The writer
says:—"Death on the rail by (ire, in
the way it occurs almost invariably in
case of serious accident in America has
ni ver taken place in Kngland." He
urges the necessity of beating the rail,
road cars by steam from tl e holler, and
lighting them by electricity ; and tln*u
points to the want of respect for
human life so noticeable in the United
States where such a man as Governor
Stonemau pats the human dog on the
head, calls him 'a poor|felloH' who has
suffered enough, and bids him go forth
and bite no more. By way of illustration the writer quotes President
Lincoln who, in allusion to the capture
of   a brigadier   general  und an   army
^  train said :—"I   am  sorry   aliout  the

The "Gazette" further announces thai

relations between France and Germany
are of  llie   liesl,   and   that so far from
tbere lieing  any likelihoxl of  rupture,
(Iermauy has  asked   France to remain
|icrfertly neutral in the event of hostilities breaking oul  in the Balkans.    We
find some  other well informed correspondent assuring his   readers that Bismarck will keep his  word in rcs.iect to
his not attacking   France, but  that he
will incite   Italy to  pick a quarrel  and
then  go in  and help her.    We learn
through other sources that peace will be
maintained and that the three emperors
will meet and embrace and secure the
good behavior of the world—France included    for ever more.    For our part
we think,  the meeting ot tbe emperors
quite   possible,   but   wc   doubt   their
ability to  keep the paict,     I'he movements  which  will  end  in war, somewhere,  have begun,  and the power of
kings or kaisers to prevent it,   is past.
Russia and  F'rance must  fight   some
body, and Germany would rather not be
the somebody to begin with.    It may
possibly be  suggested  to  Russia that
India  would be a great  prize, but we
d»ivt  think  the Czar  would catch the
idea.    He bas a strong  notion  that if
he does  not go for Constantinople, be
may not   live to go  for anything.    We
sus'iect   Bismarck knows this, and he
also knows,  in spite ol all  his declarations  about  his regardlessness of anything connected with  the Balkans, that
be will be compelled to intervene ; the
Muscovites must never cross tbe Danube.     This knowledge on the  part of
some   sagacious   correspondents,   has
possibly given rise  to the  item  about
France being requested to remain neutral in regard to affairs  in the   Balkan
peninsula.      The   cold   weather,    no
doubt,   has   its   influence   upon   both
mind and  body,  rendering both inert,
during its continuance, so that, we may
not hear ol" any important  movement,
or even  declaration, till  the advent of
milder  weather.     Thus,  everything is
stilled lor the time in  Europe, and it is
hard to say where the first event of im-
jxirtance  may take  place.     Affairs in
Affghanistan are  not of an agreeable
character for the  British or their protege  the  Ameer.     The  Ghilsais  have
been   beaten at  very great sacrifice of
men and  money,  lor a time,   hut they
are a very warlike and  turbulent race.
They arc fighting against  the  Ameer,
but  they know  in doing so, that they
are fighting against the British.    They
have been well paid by Russia to get up
a disturbance and they are in constant
communication with Russia's agent, the
pretender Yakoob  Khan, who is now
in Persia on the  borders of Affghanistan.      That  further and  more serious
disturbances  will  take  place, we have
not the slightest doubt,  but the British
are  alive to  the  poiiibll-t.es and prepared for coming events.    As  retribution for the shameful action of F.ngland
when guided by the blundering hand of
Gladstone, the Durances arc obstructing  the  work of the military engine
ers     now    constructing   roads    and
railways   in   Affghanistan.      Some  of
our    readers    may    remember     how
strongly  we adverted  to  the   shameful  abandonment of  Candahar; how
alter fortifying the place at  great expense and taking the  |ieople under our
protection,  in   which they  were very
happy, and trade with our   merchants
rapidly increasing,   it occurred to Mr.
Gladstone that trade and  people might
go to Hong Kong for him ; he was opposed to anything done by Lord Beaconsfield and so our troops were ordered
to   dismantle   the    fortifications   and
abandon   the    place,   one    of   great
strategical   value,   handing   over   the
people to the  plunder and   slaughter
that was sure  to follow our disappearance from the scene.    It may  be  well
lo state, that the  Duranees—the  tribe
inhabiting Candahar and vicinity—form
a distinct  people,  and although  they
are really subjects of the Ameer,  they
have no race affinities   with  any other
portions of his subjects.    Their prayers,
tears   and   protestations—because the
fact of their connection with the British
had drawn upon them the hatred of all
the other tribes—were of no avail, the
British left the place bag and baggage;
immediately after their departure, the
khojah pass, on the route to Candahar.
Of course, tbe obstruction must ite removed and the railway must lie made ;
we must go hack lo the |*ople we
abandoned to roblicry and murder, and
rebuild the forts lhat cost su much when
they were first erected and so much lo
destroy. Wc wonder if anyone lias
ever calculated the amount of none)
Mr. (iladstone has cost Kngland, to s:i\
nothing of blood and honor. His
eloquence may be very fine, but it is
the dearest luxury thai ever was purchased in this world. I'he Burmese
may be said to lie pacified. Thebaw
is back again in Mandalay as a guest
and pensioner of lhe British, and Sir
Frederick Roberts will soon lie at bis
post again on the frontiers of India.
The Italians will chastise the Abyssin-
ians and secure their footing at
Massowah. It is not a very nice plan-
to live in, but it is immensely valuable
for trade and strategical position. Stan-
Icy will be at Zanzibar by this time and
much interest will be felt in his progress
to rescue F.min Bey.

Perhaps, the tactics  pursued by the
opposition are the very best   under the
circumstances,  although, to the casual
observer, they would ap]>ear to be causing a great waste of time.    The numerous    questions    propounded    to   the
Finance Minister, the Provincial Secretary, and the Attorney-General, are laying  bare to the public  gaze the ugly
sores of the  Government.    The object
no doubt is,  to disgust the public with
the corruption   that   is   in   this   way
brought prominently before their notice,
and in spite of the impudent attempt at
bullying or tbe  mawkish  efforts to explain  away ugly  transactions,  by  the
Provincial  Secretary, or the curt unsatisfactory answers of the Attorney-*. Jen
eral, the impression abroad is evidently
hecoming  deejier and deeper, that the
Government  is not  what it should be,
and that its following, however obtained,
is not there solely,  to represent the different localities  from which   it  is sent.
No more  striking  instance of this fact,
could be imagined than the abortive attempt of the op|K>sition to enquire into
the subject of the alterations  on the
Island   railway  rcs*iecting   curvatures.
If,  as pretended by the Government
and their supporters, the curvatures were
quite legitimate, and the authority upon
which they were made quite legal, why
was the question voted down ?    It cannot be pretended lhat the question was
frivolous or unnecessary, it was clearly
a matter in which the public was deeply
interested,   not only in  relation to the
safety of life and  property carried over
the railway,  but from the  fact that the
people have paid  for it  in coal lands
and money, and are surely entitled to
insist upon  getting value for what tbey
have paid.    It will thus, be seen, that
there is great method in the action of
the opposition j every time they can induce the Government to vote  down a
question of vital interest to the people,
is, according to the vulgar saying, putting another nail in the coffin of the
Government.   It will convince the public that their ministers are  worthless,
and have a great deal to conceal.    Tbe
servile followers of such an administration  may chuckle  with  the  idea  that
they are so strong,  that they can do as
they like ; that opposition  and public
opinion, are,  either or both, unworthy
of the slightest consideration.    In this,
they will  find themselves, greatly mistaken ; as the impression  gains ground
that they only form  part of a machine
in the hands of designing men, for the
purpose of deceiving the jicople, they
will soon be thrust out of the seats they
disgrace, by the  |ieoplc they pretended
to represent.    Impunity, during the last
four   years,   has   completely deceived
them.     The |>eople of this Province arc
very hard to convince ; they have been
played  upon so often  and so grossly
deceived, that they are sceptical in relation to the intentions of any one or any
set of men.    But let them once feel sure
that they are right in condemning any
man or administration, and not all the
powers of earth  would restrain them
| from trying to  punish  the impostors.
The Government following should ■ remember that a mob invaded the very
House they are now profaning, some
years ago,  and although tbey had not
then, half the real grievances they now
have to complain of, a very little incitement on  that  occasion would have in

probable. Both the peupleti dread war, ith
slaughter of their owu children, its eudless
expenditure, its frightful risks, at a time
when the combatants announce before the
battle is set tbat, if victors, they will bleed
the vanquiehed to death. The two countries
moreover, are so armoured in fortresses, that
a rush is hardly possible, and if time is
necessary, time leaves opportunity for fully
weighing oonserjuencef. Uut, untoitunately
the armies are ready ; tliey exercise a preponderant influence on action, and they will
not listen for years on end to opinions like
Prince Bismarchk's without demanding at
last that the situation Khali close, Continental soldiers do uot flourish their weapons
at each other without coming to sword-cuts
at last. Moreover, though both peoples
may be peaceful, there are limits to their
power of enduring suspense. Prlooa Bis-
murck publicly proclaims that war must
come ; all tbe known facts, such as the vast
preparations of both States, back up his
view j and the inevitable conclusion, even
among peaceful peoples, weary with conscriptions, burdened witb taxes, unable to
commence any far-reaching enterprise, is
that war itself is preferable to such a hmg-
continued strain. A certainty of war, md.
as the German Chancellor expresae**, of itself
dissolves those hopes of peace whicli ure the
strongest barriers agaiust war; and we

The chaplain of the House of Kepresen-
tati.es is nothing it not eccentric in hia
in truing papers. Since Dr. Milburn's
petitions occasioned criticism last session he
has been more conservative in his demands
at tbe throne of grace, but a few days ago
the Rev. gentleman surprised the House by
praying for the wife of Secretary Whitney
and the babe.
T ds cause 1 a certain Congressman whose
infant daughter wus the same new "Cabinet
burl" to accuse the Chaplain of "offensive
pa.'tisanshrp," because he had neglected his
wife and baby. So neat day the other baby
ass prayed fur. Never before ill the halls
of ta<ugress wns the birth of any American
citizen the occasion of < fin ial action. As
riotli babies were girls the new departure
was j ''.la ■ I y mentioned as a triumph for
the cause <.f w man, to offset the snubbing
thai woman suffrage received in the Senate
t .st wei k
lenat i lu.alis, oi Kinsas, is unwilling to
reat the 11-use with any more deference
than tha hii'ly show the Senate, unlike the
"Father of liis country," who was unwilling
that n negro should tie more polite than himself. When Senator Hurris, of Tennessee,
muvod tliat ut tho couclu.ionof morning
bnslneu, each dny, thu Senate proceed to
consider II uso bills, Mr. lngalls inquired
„ hether the House hud resolved to devote
any particular time to the consideration of
Semite lulls, so that there should be a decent
interchange courtesy In the matter.
Senator Dav.es suggested that it was out
of order to discuss modes of business in the
other House. Thereupon the Senator from
Krin-.is hoped that the Senator from Haia*
chusctts would po-scss his soul in patience
The idea that there was sonio divinity hedg
ing about the House of Representatives, so
that notiody could mention it without getting
on bis knees, was a superstition that ought
tu be abandoned.
When the bill appropriating $10,000 fnr a
special distribution of seed to the drought
stricken comities of Texas was called up in
the Senate, it was advocated by Senator
Coke bt that state, while Republican Senators
raised constitutional questions. Mr. Edmunds asked if the people of those counties
could uot buy seed on credit, just as farmers
of other states do. Senator Hoar asked tbe
Texas Senstor to state the constitutional
ground on whicli he supported the hill, and
the latter raised a laugh by saying "Not at
this time." Mi. Hoar said he had hoped
that if the Senate voted to furnish seed to
Texas, Texas wonld furnish constitutional
law to the Senate. Still he would vote for
the bill with pleasure.
Here Oen. Hawley appealed to Mr. Coke
not to press the MIL out of regard for the
history of Texas—that great empire state,
old and rich. He characterized the bill an
"passing around ths hat," and said if his
little slut,, of Connecticut came here begging
fur 1110,000 for garden seed and got it, he
would resign.
Mr. Coke repudiated thn idea ol this bill
being a case of "passing the hat." Texas
was not asking for charity. It was merely
in line with bills in former Congresses, for
relief of people in Ohio, Kansas, Alabama,
and other states. Senator lngalls, admitted
that there were many precedents for the
ppropriation, and said if Texas could afford
io tske the money he could afford to vote for
it. Afiet- Mr. Saul-bury, of Delaware, also
admitted that there were plenty of precedents for It, but added that he never had
voted for such bills and (so help bin, God)
he never would, the seed for Texas carried
th» Senate hy two to one.
The social world of Washington has been
vm y brilliant for the past few weeks. Mre.
Cleveland has abandoned her semi-weekly
"ut homes," however, because they were regarded by many as public receptions. They
w.-ie in-tituted for the friends and acquaintances of Ihe lsdy of the White House, but
the opportunity was grossly abused by crowds
of people whose respectful curiosity could be
appeased at her fortnightly receptions to the
puhlic.
But Mrs. Clevelnnd evidently intends to
keep up with the pe plc'a procession. She
says she never feels tired from shaking hands,
either nt tlie time or afterwards, no matter
how great the number of guests she greets.
Sns laughed over a recent paragraph lu a
New Yo.k paper which reported herascompletely exhausted after one of her thrw-
rriur orle-ds of hand shaking. A frieud
wh • was ra'her surprised at hnr po*ers of
endurance, remarked to Mrs. Cleveland that
ahe had even equaled the great handshaking
feats of hei- huaband, as she had shaken
handa with 327 people, by actual count, in

What troubles us here is not about the
Kampala war iu pecsaaetire or win, shall I*
the next President, but when is the great
strike to end ; shall it end before ,t extend,
further and bow much higher will coal go
before it comes lower! It is a war bttvaea
lalror and capital, and as in otlier wars, each
side claims it ia winning nml announces victories, which on being analyzed, are tomnl
to be defeats, lu the preeaot conflict it Is
defeat everywhere, as while tbo capitalists
lose about 110,000,000 s week, the laborers
lose ..,000.000, whicli is really s greater lim-
than that ol their opponents, relatii.lv, foi
while the laborers must suffer in supplies
the capitalist is all right. Nevertheless the
laborers have manifested powers that .-annul
be despised, negative as well as positive.
When sn order from Assembly 49, Knights
of Labor, has the effect of keeping coal in
the earth, shutting up furnaces, keeping
great lines of steamships lying idle at their
piers, and paralyzing industry sll round, the
power must be admitted. The day may
come, it msy not Ik lar distant, wheu all the
Assemblies will strike simultaneously in
which case it will amount to a revolution.
It is for a contingency like this that Congress
just now is providing, in voting 1100,000,
000 for armaments, and Governors are tsk
iug steps to increase and discipline the
States militia, aud not for a struggle with
Eugland, which is very remote possibility.
The labor element too, is lieginning to make
itself felt in State legislatures, and therefore
in the United States Senate, which, in my
opinion, is far better as a means towards
settling matters than going out on strike.
Politics are getting hot in Canada, very
hot for it is felt that this is a very important
election, the results of which will be far
reaching. Labor also is taking a hand in ;
there are labor candidates in all of the urban
constituencies. Each party professes itself
sanguine of success, though it is tbe opinion
of those not immediately interested that Sir
John Macdonald will have to submit to de-
fest. In the Maritime Provinces the contest is peculiarly bitter. At a political
meeting in Halifax held last night, this was
made but too plain. It was what is called a
mixed gathering, at whicli there was to have
been a political controversy between Conservatives and Liberals. Sir Charles Tupper
waa then, so was also Alfred E. dones, who
at another memorable meeting held in Halifax ten years ago ordered the British flag to
be taken from the flag staff. The political
controversy between Sir Charles and Mr.
Jones did not last long so far aa words are
concerned ; the excitement was too much
for their followers, who went to blows and
before they were done smashed the furniture
of the hall into splinters over the heads of
one another. The electors of Halifax may
not be eloquent but they are in real earnest.
The Father McGlynn issue is assuming a
serious aspect. The reverend gentleman refuses Hatty to go to Rome. " Rather," he
says, '' let Archbishop Corrigan go, he needs
discipline more than I." And perhaps he
does, but that is hardly the questii n. The
next step will bo the excommunication of
Father McGlynn, Meanwhile meetings are
held all over the country, the result of which
ia that Italian priests should not meddle
with the politics of this country. " Ab
much religion as you please from Rome,"
say the speakers, "but, gentlemen of the
Propaganda, none of vour politics."
The agitation over our coast defences continues and numerous are the resolutions
brought up in Congress with the view to retaliating ou Canada immediately and defending our coasts against England when necessary. Congressman Belmont has his bill
ready, so have the Senate, and now Mr.
Manning, Secretary of the Treasury, has his
sny as representing the Cabinet. He thinks
that tbere should be retaliation or non-inter
course, a measure which would bring (.'ana-
da to her senseB. The feeling pervading the
country generally ia that there should he
strict non-intercourse, that no Canudiau ves
sal shall be allowed in United States waters
and that Canadian freight and pussengcra
shall not be allowed to pass through American territory, and that $100,000,000 ho voted
Ht this session of Congress for defences.
Unless the Canadians arc particularly active
the coining spring all witl end in smoke.
Whut is to be feared is aggression by the
New England fishermen, who encouraged by
the vaporings of the press, may commit an
overt act which would result in giving them
tlie right to fish in Canadian wators for
ever.

again. But that was a small affair compared
with the scare of last week caused by the
Ootngot /tii-jcltr, Prince Bismarck's organ,
which contained au article entitled, "On the

in 1873, when, as ia now well known, Germany would have made a move on Franco to
crush her but for Russia's threat that she
would have a hand iu the game for that
Germany could uot bo allowed to be supreme
in Europe. Of course if all the armies were
not ready, if the dogs of war were not iu

the scare is by uo nicaim over. It is true
that Bismarck assures Prance he wants

Russia is fainting for it, that every ambassador tells every other ambaasador peace
Is certaiu. Unfortunately no one believes
them. What people believe and know is
that all the powers have prohibited the exportation of horses from their dominions,
that Germany has called out 72,000 men for
trill, and that both France and Germany are
anxiously looking for the neutrality of Belgium which it is said is no longer guaranteed
by England. The frontiers of France are
well fortified, a billion francs have been
apent upon them since ]872, Germany is also
secure but thero is Belgium whioh is open on
ta French and German frontiers and now as
of old may become a oommoo battle

believe also there will be a general election
in England before July.

"good digestion to wait ou appetite, and

The article entitled "On the Edge of thf
Knife would nvvet- havu l>eeii printed in the
It'iHn Po*tt without being previously submitted to the Chancellor; and it bears sh-ns of hia
dictation aa well as hi* approval. It in ton*
-.trueted according to a formulu which liii
uurck found effective in IHftti ah well M
1870. In the siiriog of the lir-it mentioned
year, the official newspaper** of Berlin kept
proclaiming war to Ik* inevitable,uot, as they
hastened to explain, through any fault of
l'ruiaia'a, but because Auatria had entered
■Ml o truculent and hostile courae, from which
the would beuuublu to recoil without dishonor. Before hu bad ventured upou prophecy,
the Prussian Prime Minister had takeu precautions to insure the fulfilment of his
words; Cor it i* now well understood that
Austria had vainly offered every species of
compromise before culling on tho Frankfort
Diet to enforce the federal judgment upon
I1. iim.su, which hsd broken sll its pledges iu
the affair of the Klb Ouchies. Vet tho Haps.
burg Kaiser was held up to Europe as the
i-jsailant, and was thus bereft of succor from
K.usstA or from France, when, in point of
fact, Bismarck's machination*, had reduced
him to the hard alternative of fighting both
Italy and Prussia, or surrendering without
A blow his age-long ascendancy in (iermauy.
That waa the first and greatest triumph of
Bismarck's statecraft, for his resources at
the time were ostensibly much weaker than
those on which he counted in his next diplomatic contest, the long and intricate negotiations about the Luxemburg aff.nr. From
that game of cross purposes, Napoleon III.,
who nail been deemed an adept in intrigue,
emerged completely shorn of the prestige
gained in the great wars that ended with the
peace of Paris and the peace of Villafrancu.
It is now known that the French Emperor
had good reason to reckon on Bismarck's
ihCfjuietencft io his absorption of Luxemburg
by way of partial counterpoise to Prussia's
aggrandise ment in Germany. But. on one
pretext or another, the execution of the
agreement was deferred until such arrange*
incuts had been made with the South German States, and with Russia, Austria, and
Italy, as were certain to condemn France to
■ tt.*r isolation. Then t he Kui|>cror, wasjdeliau-
tly informed that not sn inch of German soil
would ever he surrendered, saw himself
obliged to pose as the provoker of collision,
and to atake his crown upon the desperate
chances of untimely war, under penalty of
speedily succumbing to the contempt of hi*
own people.
This game, of which Bismarck isa muster,
wc now see played for the third time. Once
more France is completely isolated, both
Italy ami Austria heing]hound to Germany
by treaty, and France's long cherished hope
ot winning the Czar's co operation being now
definitely lost. Meanwhile, since tho onoooj
sion of (Jell. Boulanger to office, the French
republic has been making military preparations on a scale so colossal that a failure to
employ them would, as thu Berlin Port
demonstrates, ruin the Minister responsible
for the stupendous outlay. In other words,
Boulanger now finds himself in a predica*
ment analogous to that which proved fatal
tn Napoleon III. He is iu a blind alley
and must either push forward at the
risk of dashing against h blank wall, or fall
back with a disastrous confession of impotence and folly. If, indeed, his personal
l.timiliation were alone at stake, he would no
doubt be promptly sacrificed to the safety
of his country. But even so timorous a
statesman as M. De Freycinet acknowledges that the time has gone by when Gen.
Boulanger could be made a scapegoat.
Fraucc has made herself au accomplice in
Ins programme of revenge, as she backed
the Due DeG ram moot's challenge to Prussia
iu 1870, and it is uo longer possible for
Frenchmen to disavow him.—-.V.  Y. Sun,
FENCING
AN   KXMflltt THAT IS HIALTHKH. Afcli UHACB-
njh.
The charm of fencing for beginners is that
wheu you take position before a good swordsman you need not be hopeless of making a
point. After a reasonable amount of practice with the foils you are able occasionally
to slip through his guard and enjoy the simple -.unity of touching the supposed untouchable. This comes from the perfection
of fair play resched alter several centuries
of minute changes in the positions, weapons
and accoutrements of the masters of fence.
No other athletic sport equalizes so closely
the powers natural to a nan and u woman,
a gray-heard and a boy. ii Hercules and a
consumptive.
Ladies in the best rankt of life fence more
and more as they discover Us value for health
ami good looks, instead of leaving it entirely
to actresses, who have always used the exercise for learning how to plant uud move
their feet intelligently. All over Kurope
the universities foster sword or toil play of
oue kind or another, and in that nation, a
part of which we nail the city nf Loudon, a
<dub for fencing has existed these twenty
years. The Loudon Fencing Club, under
the patronage of the Prince nf Wales, and
having on its list many peers of the realm,
is at aristocratic in its aim as the Fencers
Club of New York, of which we will have
something to say presently, is democratic.
It was founded in 18011 aa a club for fencing
ami gymnastics with a membership of 300,
aud helped to its present quarters by a pa
ternal Government. It has two French and
three Knglish teachers, and from its nearnesa
to St. Tames is uf practical use to the
officers of the Queen's household troops.
On this side of the Atlantic a few Inrge
cities have always had professors of art, but,
like unhappy Hulettof Now York, in 1770,
seldom has any one been shir to make a living from lessons in fencing alone. At New
Orleans the chances have neen better, owing
to the large crcole and French population ;
there oftoner thau elsewhere have duels
in this century beet, decided by the sword.
One must not forget, moreover, that the
Carman Turn Vurein of New York makes
something of f< ncing, and that at West
Point ana Annapolis it is a branch of study
employing a number of instructors, a study
which, unfortunately, officers of the army
and navy promptly forget.—Century.
IN  A   IKM.KUOI's CONDITION.
Any man, woman, or child is in a dangerous condition wheu neglecting a constipated
state of the bowels. There oan b*a no perfect health without a regular action of this
function. Burdock Blood Bitters cure constipation by imparting a healthy ton*, to all
the secretions.
Beating Time.--Electricity has in ita
time played many parts, hut to apply it to a
conductor's Imton has, at any rate, the
superior merit of novelty. After the recent
inano'uvres of the German army, a serenado
waa given in honor of the Emperor, and |,«
200 executants took part. It was pitch
dark, and, of course, quite impossible for tbe
bandsmen to see the conductor's heat, Bnt

They aro trying to introduce greeu chalk
lu some of the billiard rooms of Chicago, tt
is claimed that the chalk loses none of its
adhesiveness by reason of its artifical color,
and that it poasesses the merit of preserving

present, soon fades the heaviest otnerald
cloth, and makes the tables appear unsightly

A review called Dc.r Frauen/eiwl, or "En*
eiuy of Woman," is to be started in Vicuna.
The editor, Herr Grosu, has set before himself the object of cmaucinating man from his
subjection to "that doll, woman, whom
idiots idealise and fools bow down before as
to a divinity." He says that there are exceptions to this denunciation, aud generously
exempts, whole classes of the sex from the
scope of his review.
With regard to glacier ice, a curious
speculation has recently been made, according to whicli the Aletsch glacier, situated between the Jungfran and the valley of the
Haute Rhone, if it were cut into blocks of
the size of the Paris Bourse, and these
blocks were put side hy side, would furnish
sufficient ice to form a double ring round the
earth along the equator. Most of the Swiss
glaciers are far too difficult to gain access to
make it probable that they should ever lie
utilized lor industrial purposes.
Thu fact has been satisfactorily established by various scientific researches, that
many substances absorb luminous rays during the day, and at night emit these rays in
such a manner as to impress photographic
plates, although tbey may not bu perceptible
to the unaided eye. Artists have not only
succeeded in photographing the visible night
phosphor esconce of Mont Blanc's summit,
Imt have even secured an impression of a
midnight landscape—invisible to the eye—
on the terrace of the observatory at Prague.
A writer in, a Canada paper, speaking of
the possibilities of pulp as a aulwtitute for
lumber in the manufacture of furniture and
other articles, now exclusively made of wood
calls attention to the resources afforded by
northern Canada for the best pulp making
woods. It is found that in some localities
the forests are now at the best age for pulping purposes, and capable of yielding from
forty to one hundred and twenty cords per
acre, if thu whole of the timber were utilized.
By mixing the pulp with clays, stcalitc,
asbestos, plumbago, mica kc, substances of
every possible color and compactness may
be produced.
To facilitate the operation of plastering a
device has lately heen invented, termed a
plasterer's platform, which is set on casters
and may bo elevated or lowered to wall or
ceiling at the convenience of the workman
may require. Accompanying this arrangement is un imptyved two-hand trowel, and
the platform is capable of extension in a
horizontal as well as in a vertical direction.
Thus, by the combined use of the two, all
mimbersome staging and the old time hod
and short single-handed trowel are dispensed
with. Tho mortar isplaced in an extensible
trough, which is suspended on thu platform
at a point and in a manner convenient to
workmen; the apparatus cau readily bo
moved endwise from room to room, ami the
cost of laying on either plaster or hard
finish is said to be thus mucn reduced.
An English writer tells the following ; A
family let their house furnished, leaving in
it a large dog The tenant was an old lady,
who liked to sit in a particularly comfortable
chair in the drawing-room, but as the dog
waB also very fond of this chair, she frequently found him in possession. Iking
rather afraid of the dog, she did not care to
drive him out, and therefore used to go to
the window and call *'Cats!" The dog would
then rush to the window and bark, and the
lady would take possession of the chair.
One day the dog entered the room and found
the old lady in poMsessiong of the chair. He
ran to tbe window and barked excitedly.
The lady got up to see what was the matter, j
and the dog instantly seated himself in the 1
chair,
A Prince Edward Island paper .elates an
incident showing the powers of imagination.
VY bile the woodchopper was at work the axe

the large red mark iu his boot proved too

to get his boot off alone, as best she oould.

Madame de Montholou, widow of the celebrated Count Charles Tristan de Montholou.
who accompanied the first Napoleon to St.
Helena, has just died at Bordeaux. She
was 85 years old. Her husband helped
Napoleon in most of Ids bold strokes of business, such as that of the Eighteenth Bru-
m.iirc and the return from Elba. The
Comte de Montholon also aided the late
Emperor Louis Napoleon in hia famous
Boulogne escapade, and was imprisoned with
him at Ham. M. de Montholon had received
about #400,000 Irom the first Napoleon, who
made him a Count aud au Imperial Chamberlain after the battle of Wagram ; but
most of this sum was wasted in bad
speculations after the Count had retired into
private  life,

The service in Lambeth Palace Chapel to
commemorate the consecration there in 1787
of Bishop White ot Pennsylvania and Bishop

Feb 4. Among those who took part were
the Archbishop uf Canterbury, the Bishops
of London and Winchester, and Bishop
Potter of New Vork and Bishop Lyman of
North Carolina. The I>c«u of Windsor per
formed the service. Instead of a setmon,
Bishop Potter delivered an eloquent address,

of France were pacific, aud that if fresh declarations were unnecessary from a political
point of view they were equally so in the
financial world. Ha added that he had a
conviction, supported by undoubted evidence, tliat the Bourse panic was exclusively
the work of speculators. On receiving this
reply M. l«icroix renounced his intention of

While Mr. Stanley has buun making the
last preparations at Loudon and Cairo for his
journey into Africa.-ume of his assistants, sent
iu advance to Zanzibar,have been hiring porters, aud buying and packing the trade goods
needed for the march. Stanley expects to arrive at Zanzibar on Feb. 21, and if the thousand porters he requires huve been secured by
that time, he will doubtless depart at once on
his difficult mission. He greatly prefers the
Congo route, believingit to offer the easiest
and safest road to Emin Bey's camp at
Wadelai. It would, to be sure, take him
over a month to round tho Cape aud reach
the Congo, but bo estimate* that with the
aide! tho Congo State steamers, whioh King
Leopold has pTaoed at his disposal, he could
reach Emm Bey in forty-five or fifty daya
from the mouth of the river. If, however, thero ia no steamer at Zanzibar that
Stanley can engage at once to take his
party to the Congo, hu will risk the manifold perils of the overland route. It ia a
noteworthy fact that although the natives
serve the whites as porters along a large
jiart of the African coaet, the Zanzibar™ are
by far the most trustworthy j and Stanley
thought it necessary to go to the east ooaat
for them, though he desired to begin his
mission on the west.

A STRANGE MISTVKK.
Tbe following amusing iiaiag.sph upp^uie.l
in last Saturday a Birmingham Daily a tots ,
— "The extraordinary aoene recently wit
nested iu the church of aneighhoriiof village
was due entirely to a regrettable misumler-
standing, and I am assured tliat there in no
intention of adopting thr strange performance as a purt ofthe regular ritual. Briefly
the facte are these. Previously to the Sunday on which the congregation were mi
scandalised, collections had alwaya been
taken in the boxes at the church door. On
that day. however, the presence of the
Bishop aud the special uaturc of the col
lection suggested to the rector that it would
Ik. better to adopt the more modern practice
of a pew-to-pew collection. He therefore
beckoned tbe clerk just as the Bishop was
ascending the pulpit, uud told him to fetch
two silver salvers from the rectory, to band
them round at the close of the service, und
afterwards take them to the Bishop. The
housemaid at the rectory oot unnaturally
concluded that the clergy needed refreshment, aud thus it came about that the clerk
after handing two plates of biscuits down
the aisle, presented them to the Bishop,
audibly remarking that nobody would have

livery to the dockyard authorities at Shcer-
nuss of the new composite guu-vcnsels
Rattler and Wasp, which hsve been built for
the Oovernment by Sir XV, Armstrong k
Co , of Newcastle-011-Tyne. Tho Battler
and Wasp are the Hist of a newly-designed
class of gun-vessels which arc being built to
take the place of the obsolete vessels of the
Elk aud Ready type, several of which have
already been condemned as unlit for active
servic:. They are of 070 tons displacement,
and arc fitted with engines of 1,000 horsepower, which are estimated tu propel them
At a considerably higher ratelof -speed than
the vessels they are intended to supersede.
Their armament will be of a very powerful
description for vessels of their size, cousist-
iug of six 3-inch steel long-range breechload
ing guns mounted on spousoi. ports, together
j with six (Urdi.er and Nordeufclt machine
guns. Thu vessels are u nur mo red, but their
vital parts are protected by steel deck ami
■dint iin of gratings. Thu Royal Navy is
greatly iu need of vessels of this type, there
being at pr<cscnt uo gun-vessels in the Med-
way Reserve available for foreigu service.
Thu Lizard and Bramble, nister-ships to the
Rattler, are building at the works of Messrs.
Harland & Wolff, at Belfat-t, and will be
shortly ready for delivery tothe Government. The admiralty proposed to further
increase the Navy with this clant. of vessel
by laying down several in tin Government

A brilliant audience filled the theatre uf
the Royal Institution last night (Jan. 21)
while Prof. Sir William Thompson expounded the latest dynamical theories regarding
the ''probable origin, total amount, and possible duration of the sun's heat." Duriug
the short 3,000 years or more of which man
possesses historic reuorda there was. the
learned physicist showed, no trace of variation in solar energy ; and tbere was no dis-
tinet evidence of it even, though the earth
as a whole, from being nearer the sun, received in January Cy\ per cent, more heat
than in July.
But in the millions of years whioh geology
carried us back, It might safely be said there
must have been great changes. How had
the solar fires been maintained during those
ages? The scientific answer to this question
was the theory of Helmholtz that the smi
was a vast globe gradually cording, but as it
cooled shrinking, sud tbat the shrinkage—
which was the effect of gravity npon its
mass—kept up its temperature. The total
of the sun's heat was equal to that which
would be required to keep up 470,000 millions of millions of millions horse power, or
about 78,000 horse power for every square
metre—a little more than a square yard—
and yet the modern dyusmiesl theory of
heat shows that the sun's mass woulcf require only to fall in or contrsct thirty-five
metres per annum to keep up thst tremendous energy. At this rate the solar radius
in 2,000 years' time would lie about one-hundredth per oent. less than at present.
A time would come wheu the temperature
would fall, and it was thus inconceivable
tbat the sun would continue to emit heat
sufficient to .sustain existing life on the gtnbe
for more than 10,000,000 years. Applying
the same principles retrospectively, they
eould not suppose that the sun hsd existed
for more than twenty million years—uo
matter what might have lieen its origiu—
whether it came Into existence from the
clash of worlds pre-existing, or of diffused
nebulous matter. There wan a great cling-
iug by geologists and biologists to vastly
longer periods, but the physicist, treating
it as a dynamic question with calculable
elements, could come to no other conclusion
materially different from what he hsd
stated.
Sir W iIlium Thompson declined to dis-
ouss sny chemical source of heat, which,
whatever its effect when primeval elements
first came into contact, was absolutely insignificant compared with the effects of gravity
after globes like the sun and the earth had
been formed. In all these speculations
they wero in the em! driven to the ultimate
elements of matter—to tho question—when
they thought what became of all the sun's
heat—what is the luminous ether that fills
space, and to that most wonderful form of
force upon which Faraday spent so much of
the thought of bis lster years, gravity. — Tmo-
