The WoudrotM Cave* uf Loriy.
For nearly three score snd ten years
Loray   was  oner of   ibe most obscure
loans   in   Virginia.    Bitualed  in tbe
midst of the  msgni6cent  Hbemnloali
Valley, it* inhabitants, a aiiupie an I in
dustriou.    people,     knew     little    or
nothing  of  tbe  great   world   beyond
the lofty mountains  which   surrounded
their   homes.    The  discovery   of the
Caves five years ago in tbe   vicinity of
tbe town bu made  Luray  one of the
moat famous place*  on the  American
continent, ranking with Niagaia Falls,
Waikinn (ilen, the Natural Bridge, and
Other great   natuial   curiosities which
abound in tbe   United   Htatea,    There
is a local tradition that many year* ago
Peter Roffiner, a descendant of   one of
the early settler*   of   tbe   hbenandoah
Valley, while banting  wild game di»-
appearod, and wat not seen for two or
three day*, when th* finding of hi* gun
at tbe mouth of tbe cave led to his discovery.    He was alive,   bat half-dead
with Lunger   and fright,    it  was not,
however, until   August 13,   1878, that
what ire now   known  a* the   Luray
Cavern* were  discovered and partially
explored by Mr. Andrew J. Campbell.
The mouth  of  theae  cavern* i* about
three hundred and twenty pace* northeast of tbs cave which was accidentally
discovered by Mr.  Kuf&ner.    As soon
as  the   discovery   aa*   made   pal.he,
artist*   and  newspaper  correspondents
vitited the place,   and  the wonders of
th* Luray Caves were  spread  fir and
wide.   The arrangements for aeeing the
Cav«s are now   very   complete.     In
September 1881 they were lighted by
electricity, which enable* tho visitor to
examine tbe marvellous  beautiea which
are spread oat befoie him with perfect
ease.    Descending  a stairway  of solid
masonry 60 feet, the   visitor finds himself in a lofty arched room, forming tbe
ante-chamber to the Caves.    He  is at
once  sitonished   by  the   bewildering
airay  of  formation*   that   surrounds
bim in every direction.   On the right in
the original opening through which the
first  discoverers   entered.    It is  now
closed    from     without.       "Specimen
Avenue" extends 100 feet to the left—
so called because visitors were formerly
allowed lo carry  off specimens of tbe
formations, a practice which is now prohibited.   A natural "Blacksmith Shop,"
composed of   two anvi's and a heap of
cindnis, next attract*  attention. . Proceeding    a   few    paces    turther,   the
"Washington   Pil'ar" is Been, a magnificent stalagmite of whitecarbonite of
lime, rising from Boor and ceiling.    A
baain formed by dropping water  lies at
the foot of the pillar, gigantic monsters
stand   out of the   surrounding   walls,
while huge brown buffaloeadepcnd from
the ceiling.  Descending 18 feet between
a petrified   cascade and a fossil  flower-
garden, a lower floor  ia reached. From
thence the bewildered   visitor wanders
into vaulted  chambers and lanfrinths,
each possessing a separate beauty of its
own.    At every step a rare  and novel
scene delights the eye.    Stalactites hang
from the lofty roof in bewildering variety
and enchanting loveliness,   while from
tbe floor * forest of stalagmites rises in
myriad, of formations.    Drop by  drop
during    unnumbered    centuries   this
crystalline) substance has  been falling,
assuming fantastic, grand, and beautiful  shapes,   such as gnomes,  statue*,
fluted columns,   bridal veils,   bowers,
angels'   wings,   urns, ifco.    One of the
wildest and  most striking feature* of
the Cavern*   is  "Pluto's Chasm,"  an
awful gulf, 140 feet  deep, and  nearly
500 feet long.   On   tho   bank   of the
chasm  stands  "Proserpine's  Pillar," a
brown and white   column,   while halfway down the  gorg*  appears another
column,  resembling a  upectre waving
it* arms.    Ono of the most   remarkabh
formations is the "Fish   Market," displaying row* of   stalactites  closely resembling catfish and   blnck buss, which
are wet ami shiny,  and  teem  to offer
a tempting dish for an  epicure.    Passing on through   the   Caverns, a   magnificent hall is entered, of oval shape
•urpaasing everything   made by buman
hands.      Its   lofty    roof is   fretted   by
countless designs in delicate frost-work.
In the centie of thespacioas apartment
a la go  pillar or  white rock  of great
brauty arises, while in every  direction
Strange   and ghostly    forms of  purest
white gleam in the light like  so many
half-finished   statues   in    any   artist',
itudio.    Still advancing, the visitor tees
limpid streams, diminutive lake, snowy
cascades, and crystal  springs and pools.
In   the   "Naiad's   Bath"   a   double
column sands, one half of which  ia a
stalactite reaching from the ceiling  to
the floor, and is 50 feet; and the other
portion of  the column is a stalagmite
which rise* from the floor to a distance
ol 30 feet;  it ia  formed  of successive
atories, rising one above  the other and
subdivided  into   diminutive  cilumns.
A little further on the   attention is attracted  by a   loftly  pillar  called  the
"Empiess'a  Column."     It is  30  feet
high, and composed of beautiful (lutings
and carvings; it is dark  at the bottom
but becomes white near the centre, and
terminates in a delicate pink tint. Other
pillars in this   immediate vicinity support    a   turban crowned    sultana    anil
Indian squaw.    The "Comet Column"
and the -'Hollow Column" also deserve
mention.    More conspicuous than any
of these ii in  exaot  representation of
the dome of  tbe Capitol at Washington, erected on a mas* of fallen stalactites.    In the "Round Room" stands
• symmetrical column, 70 feet in height
and of varion* colour*. Leaving this
pur ion of the Cavern*, tbe "Ball Room"
is entered, a spacious apartment 100
feet long. Here tbe young people of
l.uisy occasionally meet "to chase tbe
glowing hour* with living test." Io
pissing aionnd the "Ball Room" various
glittering figure* are seen. Among
these the most striking is "Cinderella
leaving the Ball," her flowing garment*
and fragile figur* attiacting great admiration. It would be iui|,os*i'i.le
within the limits of a brief article io get
mora than a pasting glimpse of the
thousand strange and brilhsnt fount,
ion* tbat ill tbe visitor witb amnte
ment and delight. We can only nai.re
tha "Tower of Babel," "Mobammrc a

Ac. Since the opening of the Ln*y
Inn and the introduction of tleciiic
lights, the cave* have been visited by
tourists from all parts of the world. It
is estimated that at least one hundred
thousand persons hava been there d«r -
ing the five yens tha Caves of Luiay
have been open to thi public. Tmv-
ellnrs who have aeen all the famous
care* of this country and of Kaiope.
have declared that in the beauty ano
variety of its formations Luray surpasses the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky
and the far-famed grotte  of Adelsb*ib.
A typ'-al cowboy, fresh from his herd
went in r.litcli's chop house last night
The tables weie all filled with the exception of one, at which th* terror of
thn plains seated himself. As h« puller

The inn.Me  waiter  brushed an imaginary bread crumb  from the  clorlr.

"Take It away," he tnarled, "I can',
eat that.    1 want rattlesnake on toast'.''
"Rattlesnake on toastl" yelled die
'Rattlesnake en toast!" responded
the cook.
There was * slight flutter among th*
guests at this itranje order., and the
cowboy was scanned by many curious
He looked a little diiconortrd at
having his order *o promptly lalcon,
and gl.need furtively toward thn front
of the house. He saw the cooks and

looking as solemn as graveyards «ft> I
He assumed a nonchalant air and

place. He fidgeted in his chair, s...i
seemed to be nerving himself form
"Here you are, sir," said the culinary
Uanymede, placing a dish in which was
something nicely coiled, which looked
liko a fried specimen of the genus crou-
lu--. "Have a little Worcester sauce?
Gives a very fine flavor. Some folks
like mushrooms with their snakis,othe's
prefer Chili colorow. A little sjUo

and olive oil in the caster. Will yoo
have tea or coffee? Very fine snake;

When the waiter was delivering himself of tbit eulogy on tbe meal, ibe
steer puncher shoved hia chair back.
His eyes bulged out, and be became pale
around the gills.
"1 don't think I'll eat anything. 1
ain't hungry," he atid, a* he rose to bi>
feet and reached for his hat.
"Maybeyou'd preferbr'iledmoocisiu"
insinuatingly suggested the waiter.
"No," he replied, as the ashen psllor
deepened on his face. "I ain't a bit
hungry." He cast another glance »t

break f'ir the door. He forgot to ;•'*

The experimental trials with the new Bii-
tish rifle have been brought to a conclusion.
The practices up to 2.000 yards hav* been
very satisfactory. The new rifle is a splendid weapon for prize shooting snd holiday
work; but it ts a very delicate piece of mechanism, and all too complicatatl for the
rough and tumble of active service.

of learning howl You would have us

Is thi. reasonable!
What I am now going to describe
was my first niul last exploit in the
way of Iwdy stealing. It ws. a gro-
'.i-ijiie if not. a ludicrous scene, and
occurred during the period of i.iy
"walkiiig the hiHpititls," as it ia called,
which occupied the two seasons iin-
iiiet'iately fever my leaving Cambridge.
A young, and rather interesting female
was minlilted a patient at the hospital
I Rtte.iu'ed; her case baffled all onr skill
and herayiiiptotiis evu,i defied diMDOaif.
Now, it seemed an enlargement of the
heart-now, an ossificaJo.i-- then this,
ilmt, and the other; and, at, Inst, it was
plftin we knew nothing at all about the
matter—HO, not even wln-ilier her dis
older was organic or functional,
p.ii.i»ry or symptomatic - or whether
iv was ieully the heart that was at
fault. She received no benefit at all
under the fluctuating schemes of trent-
r.ieiK we pursued, and, at length, fell
inm dying cireuniHti\.ice3. As soon as
her ii'ieiu'.s were apprised of her situation, and Inn! an nikling of our intention to open the body, ihey insisted on
^•moving her Immediately from the
hospknl, that she might "i!ie at home."
In vain did Sir—nnd his dreeser* n
postulate vehemently with them, and
.ep.'esent, in exaggerated terms, the
imminent peril attending such a step.
Her two brother* avowed their apprehension of our designs, and were
iiillexi'ile in exercising their right of
roi.iovi.ig their sisier. I used ail my
rhetoric on the occasion, hut in vain;
a.id, at last, said to ihe young men.
"Well, if you are afraid only of our
dissec.ing her, we can get hold of her,
if we are to disposed, as easily if she
dio wi.li you as wi.h ub."
"Well—we'll /;.;;■ that, master," replied the elder, while his Herculoao
fist oscillated somewhat significantly
hd'ore i.iy eye.. The poor gii 1 was removed accordingly to nerfaiher'l bouse
which wm at a certain village, about
five mile* from Loudon, and survived
her arrival scarcely ten i.ii.iulesl We
soon contrived to receive  intelligence
of the even*; and as   I   and   Sir 'a
two dressers hud tr.ken great interets
in the cose througnout, and felt interne
curiosity about the real nuturo of the
disease, we met together and entered
into a solemn compact, that, ooiuo what
might, we world have her h.idy out of
the ground. A trusty tpy informed us
of the time and exact place of the girl's
burial;   and  ou   expressing to Sir	
our determination, about the matter, he
patted me on tho back, saying. "Ah,
my line fellow.—IP you havo spirit
enough—diuigerous," Ac,, Ac, Was it
not skilfully said. The baronet further
told us, he felt himself so curious about
the matter that if fifty pounds would
be of use to us in furthering our pur
pose, they were at our service. It
needed not this, nor a glance at the
eclat with which the successful issue
of the affair would bo attended among
our fellow-students, to spur our re-
sol re*
Tlie notable scheme wa« finally adjusted at my room*  in  the  Borough.
M and E ,   Sir '*  dressers,
and myself, with an experienced "grab"
—that is to say, a professional resurrectionist—were to set off from the
Borough about nine o'clock the next
evening—which would bo the third
day after the burial—in a glasa coach
provided with all "appliance* and
means to boot." During the day,
however, bur friend, the grab, suffered
so severely from an overnight's exces*
as lo dissappoint us of his invaluable
assistance. This unexpected contretemps
nearly put an end to our project; for
tlie few other grabs we knew, were
absent on professitntl tours/ Luckily,
however, I bethought lue of a poor
Irish porter—a sort of "ne'er-do-weel"
hanger-on at the hospital—whom I had
several times hired to go on errand*.
This man I sent for to my rooms, and,
in tho presence of ray two coadjutors,
persuaded, threatened, and bothered,
into acquiescence, promising him half-
a-guinea, for hia evening's work—and
as much whisky as he could drink prudently. Aa Mr. Tip—thai was tho
name he went by—had some personal
acquaintance with the tick grab, he
succeeded in borrowing his chief tool*;
with which, in a sack large enough to
contain our expected prize, he repaired
to my rooms about nine o'clock, while
the coach was standing at the door.
Our Jehu had received a qpiet douceur
I addition to the hire of himself arid
coach. A* »oon as we had exhibited
sundry doaet of Irish cordial to our
friend Tip under the safectl of which
he beeaiu- quite- "bouneilrle," and
ranted fthont the feat be was to take e
prominent part in—and equipped ojr
wives in our worst clothes, and white
top-coats, we entered the vehicle—
four in number--and drove off. The
weather had been exceedingly capricious
all the evening — moonlignt, rain,
thunder, and lightning, fitfully alter
nating. The only thing we (•**<
anxious about was the darkness, to
shield us from all possible observation.
I must own, that, in analyzing the
feelings that prompted me io undertake and go through with thi» affair,
the mere love of adventure operated
quite aa powerfully as the wish to
lienefit the cause of anatomical science.
A midnight expedition to the tombs!
It took  our fancy amazingly; and then
— Sir '» cunning hint   about   the
"danger"—and our "spirit!"
The garulou* Tip supplied us with
amusement all the way down—rattle,
rattle, rattle, incessantly; but as soon
as we had arrived at that part of the
road where we were to stop, and caught
sight of——church, with its hoary
steeple—glistening in the fading moonlight, as though it were standing sentinel over the graves around it, one of
w Inch we were going so rudely to violate—Tip's spirit began to alter a little.
lie said little —and that at intervals.
To be very candid with the reader none
of us felt over much at our ease. Our
expedition began to wear a somewhat
lrerebrained aspect, and to be environed with formidable contingencies
which we had not taken sufficiently
into our calculations. What, for instance, if the two stout fellows, the
brothers, sliould be out watching their
Bister's gravel They were not likely to
stand on much ceremony with us. And
then tlie manual difficulties! E—was
the only one of us that liad ever assisted
at the exhumation of a body- and the
rest of us were likely to prove but
bungling workmen. However, we had
gone too far to think of retreating. Wo
nono of us spoke our suspicious, but the
silence that reigned within the coach
was tolerably significant. In contemplation, however, of some such contingency, we had put a bottle of brandy
in the coach pocket; and before we
drew up, had all four of us drunk
pretty deeply of it. At length, tho
coach turned down a by-lane to the
left which led directly to the churchyard wall;and after moving a few steps
down it, in order to shelter our vehicle
from the observation of highway
passengers, the coach stopped, and the
driver opened the doorl
"Come Tip," said I, "out  with you."
"Get out, did you say sir? To be
•ure I will—Och! to be sure I will."
But there woa small show of alacrity
in iiis :. nam its as he descended the
I. -]is: for, while 1 was speaking, I was
interrupted by the solemn clangor of
the church clock announcing the hour
of mid light. Tho sou.ids seenit-rl to
warn us against what we were going to
"Tis a cowld night, yer honors," said
Tip, in Rn under tone, as we sueres-
sively alighted, aud stood together,
looking up a.id down the dark lane
to see if anything was stirring but ourselves. "'Tis a cowld night-and —
and— and"— he stammered.
"Why, you cowardly oh) scoundrel."
grumbled M "are  you  fright, wA
already? What'* the mater, eh? Hoist
up the bag on your shoulders directly
and lead the way down in the lane."
"Och, but yer hoBOH ■OOhl by the
mother that bore me, but 'tis a uiuther-
on» cruel thing, I'm thinking, to wake
the poor cratur from her last sleep."
He laid this so querulously, that 1 began to entertain serious apprehemrioris,
after all, of his defection; to I insisted
ou his taking a little more brandy, by
way of bringing him up to par. It wa*
of no use, however. Hi* reluctance increased every moment—and it even
difprited us. I verily believe the turning of a 6traw would have decided u*
all on jumping in tho coach again, and
returning home without accomplishing
our errand. Too many of the, students
however, were apprised of our expedition for us to think of terminating
it so ridiculously. As it were by mutual
consent, we ttood and pained a few
moments about half-way down the lane.
M whistled with infinite spirit and
distinctness; E remarked   to me
that he "always thought a churchyard
at midnight was the gloomiest object
imaginable;" and I talked about business
—"soon be over"— "shallow grave,"
ate, arc.
"Confound it— what if those two
brothers of hers moULD be there?" said
M  abruptly,  making a dead atop,
and folding hi* arms on his breast.
"Powerful  fellows,   both of them!"
muttered  E .    We   resumed   our
march—when Tip, our advanced guard
—a title he earned by anticipating our
steps almut three inches—suddenly
stood still, let down the bag from hia
shoulders, elevated both hands in a
listening attitude, and exclaimed,
"Whist I—whist!—By my soul, what
wa* that r We all paused in silence,
looking palely at one another—but
could hear nothing but the drowsy flutter of a bat wheeling away from us a
little overhead.
"Faith ^an' wasn't it somebody spai-
in on the far side o' the hedge, 1 heard?"
whispered Tip.

• The conspirators, too, n.re so circumstanced that, if they had common sense
enough to  comprehend   what  was to

heartily endeavor to promote the welfare of the place, instead of retarding
it Port Moody has been grossly
maligned to the ears of strangers and
Ha interests shamefully neglected, or
openly opposed, by that curious little
organization known as the Government
of British Oolumliin, by the people of
Victoria, those of Kew Westminster,
aud indeed on almost every hand, so far
a* our nearer neighbors are to be
considered. It ia a paltry and contemptible spirit of jealousy which
causes thi* procedure. The latest of
these  nasty  littlo  attempts   may   be
• stated thus: There is a certain Naviga-
.   Uon  Jompany,  having   its   principal
being in the village of Victoria, and
which is popularly known as the "Forty
Thieves." This association of large
minded business men have managed to
secure an aliuoBt absolute monopoly of
the Btoainer traffic of this province; and
almighty airs they have been putting
on since they secured it! Such a "riding of tbe high horse," such an imposition of* extortionate charges, such a
. dotnineering over customers, havo seldom been witnessed; and there are few
places In the world where they would
be tolerated. The members of tliis
company probably appreciated the fact
that their time was short, and that they
must make the most of it; but they
have accepted tho fact with a very lied
grace. Of late, they have practically
all but closed the navigation of the
Fraser between New Westminster and
Yale. But there was the railroad between Port Moody and Yale gradually
approaching completion, so as to bo
soon practicable for purposes of traflic.
So, now tho report is that an attempted
negotiation has been, or is being, mado
between them and Mr. Onderdonk, by
which the latter is only to allow his
trains to run from Yale and the Fraser
crossing above it, down to a spot on the
Fraser calledVort Hammond—because,
we suppose, there is no port there.
There the company's steamers are to be
expected to connect with the trains. If
this little arrangement could be achiov-
ed, it would lead to two results, both
of them very desirable according to the
wishes of its projectors. This place
called Port Hammond, in which a number of them are largely interested, would
derive very great benefit. On the other
hand, Port Moody, which tliey would
Utterly destroy if they could, would be
proportionately injured. This cunning
little Bchome, however, has not yet
been projected; and it is never likely so
to be. It would be an outrage upon
honesty and decency—a shameless vio
lation of every principle of right. Doubt-
iisa the many enemies of Port Moody
would exult immensely over their little
t.-iumph;although at best it could be but
a brief and temporary one. But this is
a case in which the schemers have literally counted without their host It
is a wholly incredible thing - too much
for anybody to believe—that tho Canadian Government would permit the
carrying out of this projjet for the
damaging of the very place they have
themselves selected, and are resolved
to retain, as the terminus of the Canadian Pacific railway. And let it not
be supposed for a moment, that they
havo not the power, as well as tho will,
to prevent it, or to put an immediate
stopper upon any attempt to effect such
• nefarious little job. There is no difficulty about that. By one ot the
terniB of the contract with Mr. Onderdonk—a condition not perhaps generally known—the Government have retained the power of taking out of the
contractor's hands, any section, or portion of the railway, at any time when
It is in a condition to be practically
operated, in order, of course, to throw
it open fo- traffic. 8uch is the condition of that portion of the railroad from
the wharf, at Port   Moody, to Port
Hammond. Train* hare Iwen running
over it for month* past -and heavily
freighted trains, too. The Government
have but to give Mr, Onderdonk a bint
th.it he it not to take part in any tuch
"dodfja" 03 that above described. He
will Mud it immensely to his advantage
to accept tin- hint promptly; other* it-
he will Snd himself under the necessity
to accept another condition of allium
not at all to his advantage.

What are the people ol this province
doing towards staj ing ihe progress of
the land-grabbing fever? We are not
aware of any effort being made io prevent every eligible acic in the country
being grabbed by adventurers or ihosc
who desire lo make corners in agricultural land, tiuibcr or minerals. The
remarkable part of the matter is, that
ihe malady should have broken out
under the present 'ocal administration,
and that the land grabbers arc principally composed of ihe honest John party
or his friends. It may be a coincidence
or it may be from knowledge which
enables many of the land seekers to ask
and be ceruin of a favorable reply.
However it may be, the fact remains
lhat the people's lands are being given
away, literally for nothing, because, except for actual settlers, who confer a
certain advailge on the commonwealth
by their induyry, one dollar per acre
for agricultural, mineral and timber
lands, is a mere bagatelle. There is no
argument in the world can palliate the
conferring of lands on specularors at a
dollar per acie, and the delivery of the
fee simple at such a price is the purest
public robbery. All the members in
the House are perfectly aware of the
shameful transactions, yet not one has
ventured lo remonstrate—a peculiar
circumsance taken in connection wiih
the fact rhat applications for land have
never reached anything near the present extent under any previous Government. If there was any excuse for giv-
inglhe land io foreign speculators, there
might be some •.xlenuaiion. If, for
instance, ihey opened the land on favorable erms to settlers; if they erected
saw-mills and gave our mechanics employment ; if they opened and worked the
mines, confining iheir business in connection with the mines to this province,
there might be some laint shadow of a
reason for excluding our own people
from the profits resulting. But when
we know that these foreigners secure
the land to hold for high prices, the
limber to sell to our saw mills at a
grcarly enhanced value on previous rates,
because they will only sell when the
profits are large, in relation to the
mines, it is well known that all the supplies, tools and labor will be obtained
ultimately from the United Slates, although io keep up appearances for a
time, something will be done with our
traders and anizans It is equally well
known that he intention is to smuggle
the the metal taken out, into the United
States, as it could not be made to pay
if brought through this country. The
saving in carriage, duty, etc., will enable
them to bribe hcai ily, so lhat a few of
our people will gel rich on corruption
while the rest aie being robbed and
impoverished. The fell example has
had its due effect on some of our own
people, who are endeavoring to feather
their nests during the present happy
juncture, by means of monop dies, and
much scheming is going forward, some
of them evidently having the inside
track. Monopolies, no matter by whom
achieved, are like certain paiasitical
plants that destroy the vegetation on the
trees lo which '.hey cling. 1 hey are like
leeches on the human frame, sucking
the life-blood wherever they fasten.
They are always a misfortune, and
should be destroyed whenever they are
[From tbo Malnl.nd Guardian,]
Wc learn from honest John's paper,
and, of course, from ihe very best source,
that the contract for the construction of
the False Creek road has been awarded
to Messrs. McDougall brothers, and that
the work will be commenced without
delay: the contract price is upwards of
twelve thousand dollars. Our readers
are aware that the road will be of no
earthly advantage to this city; that ihe
road really required is ihe road to Port
Moody, which would be an immediate
benefit 10 us. They know that the loc.il
Government has imposed enormous
taxes on Port Moody under false | re-
tences, and lhat, consequently, the Government is treating this civ and vicinity
with marked injustice and oppression.
That a great effort has been made to
utilize a porlion of New Westminster
and Port Moody proposed railway to
make a line to Coal harbor, by a ring
well known in this city, in order to
ivert the traffic from us. The object
is unquestionable; they are endeavoring
to kill this ci y, and honest John is
doubtlessly at the head of it. Who is
this man, who dares to trample on the
rights of our ci izens f He may have a
fiendish delight in revenging himself for
ihe adverse opinion of himself entertained in this city, but it seems rather
impudent lo attempt to rob us of our
property and continue to publish his
paper here at our expense. Our citizens
should remember the fact that his paper
is now remarkable for its bitterness in
referring to anything or anyone connected with the city; lhat it advocates
everything that is opposed to our in er-
esis, and that the longer we support and
harbor an enemy in our midst, the
longer its injurious influence will tell
against ourselves.
[From th. Jl.liil.od OnsrdlsB.]
There is probably no more contemptible being in cxisence lhan the man
who cheats a constituency into electing
him and sells himself to the highest
bidder. There are, of course, men so
constituted as to believe ihey are doing
a smart thing in making money afcr
this dirty la&hion. They have no sense
of honor, decency or fair play; they
would rob a child of its bread and butter,
an 1 laugh at ils tears. They are the
stepping stones to monopolies: ihey enable land-grabbers to secure the public
property. If these miserable wretches
pretending to represent honest men,
were annihilated, we should have honest
legislation; but, like distasting parasites
?.s they are, they not only rob iheir fellow mortals, but arc the cause of more
vice than any other class. It is by
means cf such tools that Vanderbilts.
Goulds and Uunlingtons, make their
millions; ihey lie down lhat these greedy
railway men may walk over them to rob
the puolic. The revelations afforded
by the publication of Huntington's loiters shows clearly that the United Stales
iscompiete'y in their grasp. The people
may declaim and threaten revolution,
but they are bound as firmly in the grasp
of Huntington and his colleagues as if
Ihey were in fetters. He can buy Con
grcssmen, Senators, newspapers, telegraphs, and even public opinion. What
can Ihe peop'o do against this ? They
are supposed to have a government
which is supposed to be guided by ihe
representatives e'ected and sent to Ihe
legis'a ure by the people. And so it is,
but it is guided entirely in ihe interest of
ihe railway magnates. Men who don't
know whnt they are talking about, denounce Kings, Kaisers and aristocracy;
if they could be all be levelled down
to-day, to morrow the people would all
be in the hands of railway men. Just let
us glance at the manner in which these
vampires suck the very heart's blood
from the people. A d. zen of them gel
together and pool their fundi. They
then project a railway and hire ihe press
to crack it up arid show its absolute
necessity for the section of country
through which it runs; then they buy
up the Congressmen and Senators, by
whom a bill is passed, conferring millions upon millions of acres of the
people's lands upon these adventurers.
The railway is built, and ri«es like a
great snake lo devour the people whose
lands have nourished it intolifc. Settlers
buy ihe lands on the margin of the rail
way, and from that moment become the
bondsmen of the company. These monopolists take care to control the traffic
in suchwisc, that if they sec their serfs
making too much money, they immedi
ately impose an additional rate for the
carriage of farm produce. If an oppo-
si ion line is constructed, it is only to be
run by a second set of thieves, who, if
they are too strong to be run off by the
first company, are allowed to come in
and share the plunder: ihe bondage of
the people is only made more irksome
by the intrusion of those who pretended
to serve ihem. We, poor innocent souls
in British Columbia, believed we were
in a kind of paradise, in which nothing
of a disreputable character could be perpetrated We used to hold up the people
of the United States to ridicule, as people who believed they were free, but
were only deceiving themselves, and
boasting of our own freedom from corruption. That was before we elected
honest John. Since lhat time we have
passed the Kootenay bill for account of
Americans: and the touters of the bill
were allowed to walk about the floor of
ihe House and hold whispered communication with the members I Since then
we have passed the Settlement bill, by
which we make over the whole island,
to whom? to Crocker, Stanford and
Huntington, who are exposed in these
letters recently published, for the •grossest and most bare-faced corruption. It
is a strange coincidence that no sooner
was honest John made a member of the
Government, than these American cor-
ruptionists flocked to this province by
the dozen, and have succeeded wonderfully well. They were very liberal, and
the members, or a good many of them,
look upon them as fine fellows. It is a
very sad period in the history of this
province, and will always be remembered by honest men, with shame.
The Stumpage Act, to be introduced by
Mr. Suiithe, requires all persons desirous of
cutting timber from public lauds, to take
.it a license; the rate per acre, or per tree,
is not yet fixed. The applicant must stake
off and describe his claim, and then advertise it, PineB for non-oompliance, fire to
five hundr id dollars. A return of the number of troes cut must be sent in every three
months. The Crown officers may seize and
sell any timber out unlawfully. This is not
tho first attempt to make the saw-mills pay
for the timber they stole from the pooplo,
but hitherto without success. The bill will
no doubt be rendered of little or no use for
the purpose desired, but if ihe bill is passed
at all, it will be the thin end' of the wedge
Amotbxb   attempt a* legislating about
land has been made by the honest John Qov-
ernineot, in which there ar* two privileges
asked from the people: first, the power to
sell up to 640 acres, to speculators, aud to
make that palatable, two dollars and a half
per acre is to he charged. We need not
jioint out, that, under these provision*, a
.peculator may eaaily acquire twenty thousand acre*, and the beet timber or miueral
land* in the province. Very littlo espouse

which will aRord all the facility he could

at not less than live dollar:, per acre. Of
course a great many quarter si-ctions may In,

purchased in different names, and subsequently transferred, but it will impede land-
grabbing, and the Government and the temporary agents will get something out of th.
Our local cotem., in his last issue, states
that he does not represent New Westminster,
but tho entire Province. It would lie well
for our citizens w ho have a real interest
in the Hoyal ('.ity, to give him the advantage
of being supported by his extensively scattered readers, and bestow the littlo support
they have hitherto accorded him, on the
(iUAKMAN, the only New Westminster paper.
Wo know that honest John would like to see
this city nnd Port Moody sunk beneath the
flowing tide for twonty-fonr hours. Ho liaH a
deep and abiding hatred for New Westminster, and will throw every impediment in
the way of its progress that he possibly can.
Oca readers may romember that after
tho celebrated dinner at which Mr. Smitho
distinguished himself, tho Chicago Trioune
stated, yj ithout hesitation, that several names
were attached to the document asking the
Uuited Slates to annex us, anil amongst that
number was the name of Mr. Kobson. Now,
Mr. Kobson made no remarks tbat could be
oiTousive to our Amcricau visitors, so that
they had no reason to single out Mr. Kobson
rather than Mr. Smithe, who had olfendcd
them. We may be quite sure that a re*
spectable journal, holding the position of the
Chicago Tribune, would not make tnch a
statement ft ithout the most undoubted proof.
It may be remeinliered that when this paper
expressed its determination to publish'the
list of wuuld-he annexationists, that the
Colonlft appealed to us in a deprecatory tone
expressing it .elf sure lhat we would not publish tho list i that alter a period It expressed
itself delighted that wo had derided to publish the list, and hoped we would get it
soon. Our readers can perfectly comprehend
the serious position in which it would have
Slaced the persons who signed the precious
ocumeut, and the natural des: ro to esiape
from such a serious charge. They can also
comprehend that n desire from this government would prevent tho document 1 ouig"-:x-
hibitcd, ami so allow thorn to boast that tliey
never signed the paper. Wo have no objection to the device—it is only natural they
should adopt it—hut if they think they can
convinco tho public by nicro assertion, they
are grievously mistaken. The stigma will
remain and often bo referred to when the
names of tho porsons signing the annexation.
ist document are referred to.
Probably the best criterion by which to
judge the prosperity and progress of a district, is the amount deposited in the Savings
Hank. The deposits in this form are greater
at Victoria than in this city, but if wc
analyze the deposits, wc shall find that iu
Victoria, capitalists aro glad to make tour
per cent, on as much of their capital as the
Dominion Government will permit them to
hold at call, whercxs in this city the deposits
are for tho most part by settlers and farmors.
Deposited in our bank, from July
1st, 183.1, to 31st Dec, 1883. $154,294.00
Withdrawn during same period, 103,115.70
Due depositors, Dec. 31st, 1883, 344,447.00
We defy any savings bank in the Dominion
to show such a return with alike population. The causes aro well known; the soil is
most productive, the eliiuato is mild anil
healthy, the people aro frugnl and don't
bother themselves much with politics. The
prices paid fur agricultural products arc
sueh as to leave a very large profit, and the
competition is nothing at all, owing to the
small amount of immigration. Of course,
as rapidly aa we get new settlers, so will a
certain percentage of the profits decline; but
the fact la that wu want more help to induce
our farmers to cultivate more land, and so
shut out more foreign produce.
T'.td first important political news that
tho new year brings from Europe relates to
the Fkrky scheme for tho revision of the
French Constitution. According to a tole-
gram from Paris the principal changes proposed by the present Ministry will be the
substitution of the scrutin de liste for the
srrutin d'arrondissrment, aud the aliolitiiin of
tho office of Life Senator. It is said that
the llight, reversing the course which it pursued on a provious occasion, will support
the fanner proposition, while the sacrifice of
the Life Senators is manifestly intended to
conciliate the advanced Radicals. Nevertheless, the Jerry Cabinet will be singularly
fortunate if it survives the crisis which the
discussion of -hese and associated questions
is certain to provoke.
It ia now nearly two years .ince the so-
called Grind Ministry of Gambktta was
overthrown at the outset of a career from
which much had been expected, because it
insisted on the very change in the method of
electing the Chamber of Deputies which M.
Jui.es Kerry, it is said, feels himself Btroug
enough to carry out. The argumont for the
contemplated electoral reform are no stronger
now than they were then, and it is the same
Chumher of Deputies whose members will
be once more called upon to strip thduiaelves
of the locrl influence which the present system of voting has given them. It was just
as true in 1882 as it is now that under the
existing law, which allows each arrondisse-
ment to send a representative to the popular
branch of the Legislature, the construction
of a stable majority professing definite political principles is extremely difficult in
No difficulty of the Bort is experionced in
the United States or in the United Kingdom, although the method of choosing the
members of our House of Representatives is
identical v. ith the *rrtitin iVarrondisseenient,
while the mode of electing tlie House of
Commons docs not differ from it materially.
We can see, however, that if the Congressmen allotted to a given State were nominated at a Stcte Convention and voted for on a
State, ticket, like the Presidential electors,
it w oul.l bo much easier for tbe party leaders
to designate and control them. Such a system would he perfectly legitimate in this
country, not being prohibited bv the Federal
Constitution, but it would not bo sanctioned
by the people liecause for many years party
organization has been firm enough without
it. Indeed, we hare sometimes suffered
from an excess of coherenco and a too rigorous effaccment of individual independence.
In France, on the other hand, not with
standing the fitful experiments of the last
ninety-five years, representative Institutions
are by no moans deeply rnolod, and the efficient working of t hem by party inacumory
hss yet to b* attained. What has trammelled and at more than ono juncture paralysed
tlie legislative ructions of the Chamber of
Deputies under the present regime, lias been
the absence of thst spirit of toleration and
compromise snd thst habit of cooperation
which are indispensable to the efficiency anil
even to the exi.teuce of parties, Thu ten-
dew y lo disintegration, the propensity
evinced by each Deputy to subordinate th*
gravest national concerns to the petty interests of bis ow n constituency, reached its
seme is thu summer of 1882, when the
Chamber flung away the influence which
France hio'. assiduously built up in Egypt,
and overthrew M. he FltKYcrvKr ostensibly
l«causc he asked for a money grant, insignificant beside tho sums which lias since lec-u
lavished upon Touquiu, but really because
lie failed to sati»fy the demands lor patron-
age with which he was besieged hy protended patriots.
It was the ruin of French prestige in Egypt
and the Levant which opened the eyes of the
French people to the difficulty of governing
with a Ministry representing the fluctuating
majority of a body composed as is tlie pros-
ent Chuinlier ol I iepiiticx. llepubtican opinion haa accordingly undergone a marked
transformation with reference to tho method
of electing Deputies. Nor is there any reason to suppose that the reactionists opposed
tlie scrutin de lisle two years ago from any
vehement objection to the system itself. So
long as the change was advocated by Gam-
betta, it was their cue to resist it iu the
hope of breaking down the man whom they
regarded ss the mainstay of the republic.
The strength of the reactionists is concentrated in particular departments, and they
are not unlikely to gain more than they will
lose by a provision that all ths Deputies for
s given department shall lie voted for on one
ticket. There is nothing improbable, therefore, in the report that the Might will concur
with the Ministerialists in demanding the
scrutin de lists. M. Jui.E« Fkkry is not so
great a man that the enemies of the republic
should think it needful to ruin him at sny
oost. On the contrsry, he is much less objectionable to them than many of the other
Republican leaders, and his aversion to taking harsh measures against the dynastic
families has evon caused him to be charged
with secretly furthering the interest of the
< 'route UK    I',', I.I-.
Rut whilu the present Gambcttist Cabinet
has a better chatice than Gambstta himself
had of obtaining the scrutin the liste, thuro
are other questions connected with the project of constitutional revision thst may give
thorn much trouble. Few Republicans, indeed, are likely to defend the offiue of Life
Senator, for which they are indebted to thu
reactionary element of the Versailles Assembly. But will M. Friiky undertake to define
and limit beforehand the subjects to be discussed in the Constitutional Convention! It
is very doubtful whether sueh restrictions
would be binding ou the joint convention of
the two Houses, and the attempt to impose
them was the pretext, although not the real
cause of Gamiiktta's downfall. If on the
other hand, the advene ed Radicals arc to bo
at liberty to advocate tho most sweeping reforms of tho Constitution, a long anifexcitcd
session of the Convention may be looked for,
in the course of which some unforeseen pro-
frosal or some unexpected combination of
actions may overthrow the Ministry.—New

We tee that Mr. Ri-Hy is having the U-le-
phone W to the "Cak'Jonia Hotel." The
bufte for tfuti hruch are all up aud the w ire
Ciing itrung.
What little skim of tec there wu in the
harbor is rapidly moving off. It was nover
anything lo prevent the Siwafchim working
Uiuircauoes through it by simply uung one
uadJle at tfie buw.
We have some beautifully fine weather
since our last uiue, although exceptionally
r>>ld for this place. One result has beeu
that rapid progress hu« Ixeu maUe iu the
liuildiiigs rvfuried to in that and preuous
issues, aa also iu clearing up streets and town
lots, aud iu other out-dour work.
It seem 11 that, at the meeting of the clan*,
or gaugs. of track-layers, up the railway
line, at high noori. ou 'fuwday last, there
was quite a jovial time, Ample refreshment a
www provided and the cork-screw*s bird not
been fcjffita* So, the up and dowu gangs
greeted each other heartily, pud had rather
what is called a "good tune" of it.
8liico tho departure oi tho '* Stormy
faWe*," tjie last of the stoel-rail fleet, things
ljok somewhat 1< noly »bout tho railway
wharf. However, the opening of the telegraph office there, has given an additional
attraction to tlie spot. Furt'ier, it will not
he long now until wo may look out for the
«*\r..e»t of tho spring fleet,
A goodly party of our fellow towuemen
availed themselves of tho opportunity of
taking passage by the first through train.
Although wo have said elsewhere, it started
on Tuemlny Dtght, it wai really Vfediitr-l.iy
morning before the trniu got off. As ten
iron laden cars such as these were, make a
tomewhat heavy train, tho locomotive took
half of thrm at a time* from the wharf to
the head of tho grade above this town. Then
the wholo wero coupled together una went
on as one.
Railway. AcoIpknt.—On tho evening of
Saturday last, about 11 o'clock, whilst a
train waa delivering rails, up at tho front of
tho works, near the Mission, there was a run
off the track, by which conductor Dioki*.
Was seriously injured. In tho following
(Sunday) morning, a locomotive ran down
to fort Moody,, through which means a tele-
graph message was B.mt to Dr. Trcw, at
New Westminster, calling on him to attend
to the casf. The doctor promptly repaired
to the scene of the disaster, via Port Moody
and the railway, and did what was necessary
under the circumstances.
It is outrageous how the pcoplo of this
town are being used about the opening of
that new L'larku road. For some time past,
we have been virtually cut off from the outside world. It is true that the stage coaches
may, aud we believe do, still run to tho end
of the North road, but there U now no ferry
boat running from that point up to tbo town
proper. It is known that there ore packages
and parcels of goods, nt the end of tho road,
for people here in town; but they might just
aa well he at New Westminster. They cau
only bo conveyed from the North road by
packing', and that, in many instances is quite
IC I'lfclly shameful Is the mode in which we
continue to be disserved an to postal matteru.
'There seems to bo no nearer prospect of our
being provided with a postoli.ee now than
there was six nwmths ago, The usual mode
of doing things is, that onrlotters and papers
arc, down at Watkis's, tied up iu a bundle
—we are not allowed u 1*. 0. bag—this
bundle is entrusted to any ehance pedestrian
who may be coding up town. Its contents
are often profusely, but of coutbo unintentionally, utrewn along tlw way. The residua
Is dropped into (Jrant's shop, or the Caledonia hold, where u general scramble enmi .-s
over ''the mail,''      No wonder people ol
find their letters and papnru mUsing. Nobody is reppusible for anything. How long
is this to bo eudurod ?
The harbor lias, especially in its shallower
parts, been slightly skimmed with ice, a
fact which will be a great source of comfort
to some people who are ever on the outlook
for something which may redouiul to the
rllscredit of Port Moody. Whilst readily
admitting this fact, as a fact, we must remark that this slight scum of ice—the congealing of the great quantity of fresh water
which floats on the tidal brine—in no way
do tracts from the value of the harbor, even
as a winter port. This thin scum of ice is
insufficient t<» prevent tho progress of any
vessel larger than a canoe, or thu smallest
class of row-boats. Moreover, it neud nut be
allowed to form at all. The plying about of
a small tug l»oat -or even the smallest of thu
Praser river steamers—during tho few cold
nighta that wo havu during only lent* of our
Winters, would quite prevent this at worst
but trivial difficulty.
So, wo havo got back to the old and or-
{.editions, way of having criminal justice administered, so far as the people of this tuwn
are concerned. For instance, on Thursday
of last week, a poor wretch of a Chinaman
WM arrested, at New Westminster, on| a
charge of larceny supposed to have been
committed at Fort Moody, and on a warrant
issued at Port Moody. Ho was kept in Westminster jail some twenty-four hours. Ou
Friday, a police constable from Fort Moody
—wo suppose on being telegraphed for—
went over to Westminster ana brought poor
John back to Fort Moody. He was kept in
jail hero until Saturday evening, there being
no J. P. present before whom he could ho
oxaminoa. Ho was, that evening, brought up
before Mr. McOillivray. The prisoner preferred being tried summarily. That requires
two J. F.'s, and there waa only one on hand.
Bo the unfortunate Chinamnn was remanded; and, on Monday, constable Sharpe had
to escort him back to Westminster. It is
auppoaed that these operations coat nothing ?
and that a Chinaman haa no rights.
On Monday evening last a meeting took
place in New Wes tin Ulster, respecting an
application to the local Government for aid

city und New Westminster. After the resolution, which we give below, was passed, a

Mysthous Death.—A young man named
Alfred Clayton died about eleven o'clock on
Saturday forenoon, at a houso in the swamp
where he had been living with ono or two
room mates, for some weeks past. Deceased
was a slimly built young man, about 25
years old, and of sandy complexion. He
worked for Mr. Sexsmith, of the North Arm,
last summer, and was afterwards employed
for a spell on the railroad. For a few days
previous to his death, Clayton was not in
good health, complained, of sleeplessness, and
said he would take some laudanum. One oi
his room mates, becoming alarmed as to his
condition, called In Dr. McLeod, who prescribed for him and expected him to recover;
but, as already stated, he died on Saturday
last—most likely from an overdose of laudanum, to which he had rnorted with a view
to obtain rest. Dw%oed ia reported to be a
■waive of GaHfomim a«d has a mother living

Mr. Ecaven roso to deprecate the use nf
nnparliainentary language, and particularly
personal allusions, during the debates. He
referred to improper language used by the
Provincial Secretary at a recent debate on
thu Coal Mines Act. Mr. Smithe came to
thu rescue of his colleague, and attempted
to throw all the blame on Mr. Heaven. Mr.
Kobson said he mgretted tlie circumftan-
0M, but conceived he was quite justified in
using the words ho had expressed at the
time. The speaker said the words were
taken down by tho clerk, and that relieved
him from all responsibility. Mr. Galhrait!)
said Mr Heaven never used personalities. Mr
Duck thu light Mr. Kobson was rightly
served fur making personal allusions, and us
Mr. Beaven made no attack, that there was
no ground for the strong expression used by
the Provincial Secretary. Mr. Heaven said
he did not think he had anything to apologise fur, or he wonld do so at once. Mr.
Kobson, knowing that Mr. Heaven dare not
maku any personal allusion or charge against
him (Mr. It.) availed himself of the opportunity to badger hia opponent. Mr. Poolev
tried to screen the Provincial Secretary with
very imprudent remarks. The subject then
dropped, but the unpleasant imprcKsiou
ereated by the Provincial Secretary's coarse
language, remains indelibly fixed. A debate
on a £10 fee to be squeezed out of Notaries
Public, ended in exempting Notaries in rural
districts. Tho attempt to give J. i'.'s the
power to abjudicate on Bmall debts was lost.
After some unimportant business, thullouse
adjourned till Wednesday.
Wednesday, Jan. 16.
Mr. Orr moved the re-enactment of the
two bills for railways to the boundary line
from this city. The speaker ruled the
motion out of order. Mr. Kobson brought
in his abortion of a hill ou public schools,
which gavo 11:ie to a long debate, particularly in relation to the clauses giving women the
power to vote. After a number of clauses
had been passed, the committee rose and reported progress. The bill, from'beginning
to end, is a hodgc pintle ot absurdities, in
tended as a bid for popularity. It is evidently the production of a shallow mind,
and will in a great measure, if passed, be
inoperative, it Is very sad to seo the time
of the House waited la any sueh frivolous
manner, and shows the horrible nature of
the incubus called a Government, under
which we are now suffering. Tlie House adjourned till Thursdny.

Mr. Grant moved for an address to the
Lieut.-Governor to urge upon tho Dominion
Government the necessity for more light* on
the coast, between the island and the mainland. Tlie motion wan a good one, and waa
earned. A long and weariaotne debate
upon the School Hill, which was
greatly mutilated; iu fnct, if the Introducer
t the bill had not been honest John, it
would havo been withdrawn. Ah it is, It
will be unworkable, and any attempt to
bring it into force would do incalculable injury to the whole system of education,which
is not very popular, and might raise a great
ileal of opposition which is now durm.mt.
The mutilation of thu bill was going on at
sueh a rate that honest John was fain to usk
the committee to rise and ask leave to mt
again, which it did. Thu House then adjourned till Friday.
Fiuday,  January IStli.
Tho Attorney-General introduced the
Minerals bill for second rending. To tho
present bill had been added a number of
clauses, by which tonus and conditions wero
clearly defined. Mr. Orr made a number of
objections to thu provisions of the new bill;
in particular he objected to tho necessity of
tho wholo of tho claim owners being unanimous in deciding as to the working of a claim,
in this view he was opposed by members interested in mining, and the clause passed as
read. Tho committee then roso and reported
progress. This Mineral bill business is the
stock jobliery of every  Parliament in tins
fprovince, and, like the land laws, will be
cgislated upon to the great confusion and
annoyance of those concernpd. There being
nothing particular to do, Mr. Smithe, ably
seconded by Mr. E. Allen, slugged the late
Government to their heart's content. The
House then adjourned till Monday.
Monday, Jany. 21st.
The House went into committee to consider report of the select committee on the
Chinese question. Mr. iHmsmuir distinguished himself by tulliug the truth, and as that
is almost a breach of privilege, he was set
upon by most of tho other members. The
report of the select committee was adopted
unanimously. Mr. T. Davie introduced an
Act to regulate the Chinese population. As
this was a good peg upon which to hang a
great deal of wah-wah, it was seized upon
accordingly, and much time was got rid jf.
Mr, T, Davie, moved a resolution For an address to the Lieut.-Governor, askinpthat the
new liquor law be suspended, in this Province, and Stating the determination of the
House to insist upon its right to legislate
upon the license question as it thinks lit.
Objections were raised to this form of procedure. Honest John could not lot such an
opportunity slip for making a point with the
Blue Ribbonites, fend delivered a clap-trap
lecture ou temperance a fa Cob Hawkins.
Mr. Wilson suggested that H tlie matter
was to be viewed from a temperance standpoint, it wonld be well for hon. members to
go into a state of probation; but as this was
probably a **goak," nobody said anything;.
The debate was adjourned Mr. Smithe
said a bill was in preparation to regulate the
cutting of timber on public lauds. T?he
Mineral* Will, in committee, was moved a
stage. Mr. Allen said strangers were allowed to -wdiaic* hon. members to neglect their

ham and white of egg with coffee, and fish
with cocoatiua and with cocor,. Salt meats
are less rotirded in digestion than fresh. The
retardation is greatest with cocoa, less so
with tea, and least with coffee. Tea causes
flatulence. Cream and so-jar reduce the retarding effect of tea, 1 ut increase that of
cocoa. He recommends as a prautioil conclusion that albuminoids, especially fresh

According to news published In the Ran-
goon papers, King Tbtjbaw haa become a
"reformed character." Till lately this potentate had been regarded as a weak young
man, given up to indolence aelMndulgtnce,
and cruelty; it is reyortsd that since the
death of 'the monster," Yanouug Prince, a
marked change haa takrn place which has
done much to restore King Thebaw's power
and intlueuce. W ith the reeatoblishment of
his ascendency the moderate and enlightened
men wbo have always be«u attached to hia
party, and who, thongh uot actually banished from court, have, we learn, lately had
littlo or no say in the conduct of affairs,
are now* taking their pro-pur position In the
councils of the nation.
Tbe Kiug himself has awakened from hia
lethargy, and has begun to assert himsolf as
sovereign and ruler, whist? in a corresponding
degree the interference and niiiueiK.:- oi the
Queen have decruasod. He now, according
to the same source of information, regularly
attends and presides at the meetings of the
Htootdaw, and .appears to have suddenly
developed  » surprising   amount of   intelli-
fencu aud energy. Tlie latest news from
hebaw.s court is that the King, beiug determined to make au elfort to subdue the
rebellious Shan chiefs, has despatched 5,000
troops to the Shan States, uuder four Generals, accompanied by several Italians in the
Kings icrvice,—London Jktilv New*.
By many individuals in many countries an
oath is regarded very lightly. To them it
is just as easy to swear an to sneeze, aud in
many instances easier. Iu the Eastern nations, among the Mohammedans, an extraordinary sanctity is attached to a solemn as-
Bcveratson, and the belief in punishment hereafter to a perjurer is carried to a degree
of fanaticism. When a Hindoo or a Burmese
■wears, he implicates not himself alone, but
all his kindred to the seventh degree, all his
personal acquaintances, and all his posterity.
When he, through lapse of memory, perjures
himself, all these aro condemned to "ten
kiuds of punishment aud five attacks of
enemies." Bhould thu perjury be of a more
serious form, the "earth will open and swallow them all up." Should he knowingly
make a false oath, all hia friends and ao
((iiaiutanccs will be precipitated into eighty
great hells aud one hundred aud twenty
small ones.
Ou tho strength cf the success of Last
January's ice carnival at Montreal there is
to be another. Some Canadians suggest that
such sin exhibition, after all, brings the coldness of the country into uudue prominence,
to the terror of European, emigrants. That
however, is a narrow and superficial view of
the matter. These sports, on the contrary,
impress the strauger with the fact that midwinter itself, presumbly the most inclemont
and dreaded season in Canada, is the time of
■the greatest gayety ami enjoyment. To
have shown what pleasure can bo had in that
latitude during the heats of July would have
been small encouragement foi immigration;
but the scenes of a January carnival, with
it prodigious Ice palace glittering under
electric lights, It* toboganning ou the bills
its curling houspiel at the riuk, its mow-
shoe steeple 0liases hy day and torchlight
processions by night, its skating matches,
racing in sleighs, games of hookey and quadrilles on the frozeu river, not to speak of its
regular railroad trains running across the
St. Lawrence upon ice ton feet thick—such
spectacles as these present a Canadian winter
iu anything but a forbidding light.—Ex.
The late peculiar appearance of the sky
after sunset has attracted much attention in
tho Antipodes. The Melbourne Argut mentions a peculiarly rich glow which has appeared in the western sky for a considerable
time after sunset, and has boen popularly
ascribed to the aurora australis. The Government Astronomer, Mr. Kllery, however,
attributes tne phenomenon to a different
cause.    The spectrum, he points out, exibits
f;reat breadth iu the telluric of atmospheric
ines, an.l especially of those shown by M.
Jaussen to hu due to aqueous vapors In certain conditions in tho higher strata of atmosphere. He is satisfied that the oause of
tho gorgeous sunsets is ninjply ft peculiar hy-
grometric condition of those regions. He
predicted wst and broken weather; and as a
matter of fact the peculiar sunsets have been
followed by copious rains all over the Australian continent. The seAson, in fact, in
ihe colony,has boon almost as remarkable as
the sunsets, nothing like it having boing experienced for many years. Another and
more uncomfortable solution of the great
"sunsot mystery"' is given by a Persian astrologer, who predicts that the blood red
appuarenco of the »ky is a forewarning of a
war Buch as tho world haa never yet behold.
There is to pe bloudahtd on an unexampled
scale iu all the quarters of the globe.
The French Chamber of Deputies haa re
iocted tho Government demand of three millions and a half of francs for the Senegal
Railway; Tins may perhaps be regarded as
indicative of a reaction against the colonial
craze which had lattorl , taken such a strong
hold on the French imagination. Something
like a milliou sterling has already been spent
on thia undertaking, the protection of which
necessitates daily a heavy outlay in addition
to that required for its construction. Natives cannot be got to work on the lino, and
the rate of wages demanded by the Chinese,
the Morocco Africans, and the Europeans
employed is ruinously high. The tornadoes,
so frequent in that part of Africa, often undo
in one night tha work of weeks, and the
white worms honeycomb the sleepers almost
as soon as they are laid down. As for traffic
there is nothing of the sort iu the region
through wlj.ch the line passes. A few sol-
diera now and then occupy a carriage or two;
but there is no transport of merchandise,
and even the ubiquitous globe trotterhtmself
shows little desire to penetrate these regions.
Of the hundred miles contemplated in M.
Freycinet'H scheme, only fifteen or sixteen
have been completed; and as the Chamber
has decided not to throw good money after
bad, the Senegal Railway will probably take
Tbe pressure of events and a decided change yi U/*u* iu the organs of advanced Liberal
opinion hav a at last constrained the Gladstone Cabinet to adopt a definite and vigorous policy with regard to Kgyut. The intention of withdrawing the British troops
from tbe Nile country has been abaadonned,
and, far from striving any Longer to belittle
the importance of the religious upheaval ia
the Soudan, the .Ministers »cku«w led*3 that
the Khedive's dominions are in imminent
need of defence against 1*21 Uahdi, aud they
agree that under certain restrictions the
united Kingdom shall furnish the necessary
protei tioti. These restrictions may yet cause
a good deal of trouble, but even the present
circumscribed programme is a long step toward the incorporation of Egypt among tbe
British   | oesea»it>ns.
Looking first at the positive side of the
new policy, we see that the Knglish Government guarantees the security of Egyptian
territory north of ths first or second cataract,
it is probable that, for atrategic reasons the
last-named limit will be fixed upon. Nothing
is said about Kuakim aud Maasowah, but, although these seaports lie south of the boundary designated, they will undoubtedly be
included in tlie protected district, since
in the hands of El Mahdi they would become the centres of a revived slave trade,
and might seriously Interfere with the safe
transit of British merchant vessels through
the Ked sea. But to garrison those ports
and to maintain a line of defence at the second cataract, detachments from the native
troops belonging to the British Indian army
will be requisite, since at any of tbe points
mentioned the climate would prove fatal to
European soldiers. Owing moreover, to Ihe
■^subordination and religious excitement of
the people, the British force now stationed
in the Delta is to be considerably strengthened. The whole number of troops, therefore, which Great Britain will have to keep
lenuanently employed for the defence ef
Egypt—utciuding those needed to preserve
order in the country aud guard the ports of
the Ked Sea as well as those massed ou the
a perihapent place in the category of magnificent but abortive conceptions of which
French genuis has lately been so prolifi.
French doctors almost invariably pre
scribe red wine rather than white, and
Liebig beara them out, as the following passage, found among his writings, proves:
"The white wines are hurtful to the nervous
system, causing trembling, confusion of language, and convulsions. The stronger wines,
such as champagne, rise quiekly to the head
but their effects are only of short duration.
Sherry and strong cider are mote quickly
intoxicating than the generality of wines,
and they have a peculiar influence on the
gastric juices Of the stomach. The intoxication of beer is heavy and dull, but its use
does; not hinder the drinker from saining
flesh. The drinkers5 ef* whiskey and brandy
are going to certain death." Red wine is the
least hurtful, and to aome cases, really be-
southern frontier to resist an attack from the
Soudan—is not likely to fall short of 30,000
men. That is to say, the change in the
Egyptian situation, aud the method of dealing with It adopted by the Gladstone Cabinet, will involve the permanent retention
iu the Nile land of as large % force as
was temporarily intrusted to Lord Wol-
selev for the purpose of suppressing Arabi
Now, who is to defray the cost of suppor-
ing a standing army of 25,000 men iu Egypt?
'1 In: British taxpayers will not do it, and the
feltaJdn cannot do it, unless they are relieved
from the burden laid upon them by the Khedive's civil list and the intolerable extortions practised by the native Ministers. If
the family of Mehemet Ali were ejected
from a land which they have done their best
to ruin; if Egypt, like Cyprus, were occupied by Great Britain under a stipulation to
pay a fixed tribute to the Porte, it would be
easy to provide for the military defenee ! of
the country from its existing revenues. Indeed, under the systematic and honest administration that might be looked for at the
hands of British officials, so great a stimulus
would be given to agriculture and trade that
the public revenues would be materially augmented, while at the same time the condition nf the hard-working native population
would bo sensibly improved. Sucu.)a transformation in the internal government of
Egypt will be tho logical result of the weighty
responsibilities which are now formally ae-
cepuid by Great Britain. The first move in
this direction has, it seems, beeu already
taken by Earl Grauville in notifying the
British agent at Cairo, Sir Eveline.Baring,
that ccrtaiu reforms in the internal management of Egypt will be at once begun under
his supervision.
Thu determination reached by the Gladstone Ministry makes it tolerably certain
that, whatever may be the triumphs of the
False Prophet on the upper Nile, his northward advance against Egypt proper will bo
successfully withstood. Nevertheless, a good
many diplomatic protests and recriminations
are likely to be provoked in England's refusal to make any attempt to recover Kordo-
fan or even to save Sonnaar and eastern
Soudan. Not only will the British Government do nothing of itself to avert the
complete conquest by El Mahdi of
the Khedive's possessions south of tho second cataract, but it will not permit Prince
Tcwtik to squander tbe resources of Egypt
in a fruitless effort at resistance. In the
form of advice, which is, of course, equivalent to a command, Earl Granville haa signified his wish that the Egyptian garrrisons
at Khartoum aud Berber, and the expeditionary force under Baker Pasha, should
bo withdrawn behind the line of'defcnee decided on at 1 /mden. He has also declined to
sanction the cooperation with Abyssinian
troops which had been proposed by Baker
Pasha, foreseeing, no doubt, that Mas-
»owah would be the price demanded for
Abyusinia's assistance. As to the offer of
Turkey to reconquer the Soudan, Lord Granville has no objection to such a demonstration, provided it is made at the Saltan's coat;
but England will not suffer Egpyt to spend
any money for that purpose. It remains to
be seen whether Turkey or France—deeply
interested as both powera are in arresting the
progress of El Mahdi—wi.l undertake at
then* own expense an expedition to the Sou-
Ian. Even in the improbable event that
either of thoie powers, or both jointly,
should assume the task, the possession of
Suakim or Massowah would be indispensable. But it might happen that at the last
moment Great Britain would refuse to let
either of those important harbors, wbioh at
resent are virtually hers, pass into foreign
ands—New  York Sun,

In a recent debate in the Hungarian Diet
on legalizing marriages between Christians
and J ewa Caron Rosner, lay professor of the
canonical law, showed that marriages between Christians and Jews were not contrary
to the tenets of the Church or the traditions
of Hungary, for ia the thirteenth century
unions between Christians aud Ishmaelites
and between Christians and Jews were valid
iu Hungary. The speaker pointed out that
in the early centurios tho Church hod no
aversion to marriages with non-christians,
and that the greatest- Christian saints had
pagan husbands, and that their children
were afterward saints in their turn. Archbishop Samessa of Erlau thundered against
the intended secularization of marriage. Civil marriage," he exclaimed, "comes from
the socialists (none remarked the obvious
anachronism) who want to destroy the family—the basis of society." The question was
not decided.
A Russian magazine called the Historical
Messenger (I*toritschefki Veanik) has just published a plan for the invasion of India,
found among the papera of the late Gen.
Skobelef), it consists first in opening relations with the Afgans. an initiatory step
really taken by the Russians in 1873; and
next iu sending Russian troops to Cabul in
order to support an Afghan invasion of India. Before invading India dissatfection
is to be fctirred up, or, rather, to be organized and brought to a head, among the various populations of Indostan; and the vanguard of the invision is to be formed by
masses of Asiatic cavalry, such as are now
being formed by subjecting the Turkoman
tribes to rough forms of European drill.
With tiiis irregular cavalry, with the Afghans, and with regular Russian troops, Gen.
Skobeleff was convinced that an impression
could be made on India with important mill-
I tary, if not decisive polHioml results.
