A HEROINE.
1 suppose that the world contain* at
many odd thinga and odd people aa
ever it did, but 1 never now come across
tuch quaint peraont ta I saw every day
in my early youth. The old teuton waa
an oddity if ever there was one; and
thr-rir wat a poor old woman who used
to come and lieg for money to buy
snuff, of which she took an immense
quantity when the could get it. Her
third hushand—a miserable old man—
waa a sufferer from ttthma, her second,
to the best of my recollection (I trust
thtt I do not wrong his memory) had
been hanged; her drat, who formed the
chief topic of her conversation, had
been a aoldi'r, and had died in the service of hit country. She had been a
heroine in little, if her account of herself could be credited, and I believe that
ahe tr'.ji , ',uly. A century or to back
from no*, to Mini,ard'a legiment had
been at the island ot St. Christopher, in
the West Indies, and it had some sharp
encountere with French troops, who
contended with us for that colony. On
one occasion when the red-coata had
had to retire, thrie waa consternation
and affliction among them, not so much
on account of the check which they had
received (for that tbey hoped to retort
upon tho enemy shortly), but because
the colours were missing. They had,
in the hurry of retreat, been secreted
somewhere near the field f action. It
was not thought that they were in the
enemy's pobsession; but there was the
greatest reason to fear that the Fiencli-
men, who had advanced as the English
retreated, would in rummaging tl,e
neighbourhood discover and seize them
The colonel, at the thought of having to
Kpnrt the loss of hia colours, was we
nigh distracted, lie would think of
nothing else, and c, uld hardly be got to
issue the necessary orders for the fafety
and sustenance of those under his
direction. But he would serra to have
been a favourite of the regiment; be
cause, great as was the general danger
and privation, it was a soirow all round
that the commanding officer took th'
lots of the colours to mucb to heart.
Ho was assured that they would retake
them, or perish in the attempt; but h
could not bear that things so precious
should be dishonoured by being in the
enemy's keeping for an hour.
Now it was ihat my old friend began to be prompted to do a deed of
heroism. All through the camp the
men were lamenting the colonel's
affliction, and inventing all sorts of
senseless plans for lecovrring the
colours and relieving hit anxiety. One
•oldier sp ke of a way by which a black
man might, by folowing oertain paths,
g"t unsuspected to the place of concealment, and, if he were at all adroit,
bring off the silk hid in some parcel of
farm stuff. But to this ichcme it war,
objected that a black man, though he
could be sufficiently cunning when after
any devilry of his own, w, uld be likely
to make a bad adventure iu a case like
this, where discovery would be followeu
not only by failure, but pr bably by
punishment also. It was, moreover,
consider, d highly inexpedient todiscluse
the hiding-place to a slave, who might
sell the secret to the enemy.
The wouian heard all this discussed,
but said nothing to tbe soldiers. She
however, thought over what had been
said, and formed a resolution. As soon
as it was dark she repaired to the
colonel's tent, asked to see him on a
matter of importance, and obtained admission. Mn' told him how sad it made
everybody to know the trouble lie was
in, and tbat she would make an effort
for relieving ith distrcas if he would ex
plain lo her accurately the wheieabouts
uf the place of biding, and would give
her a pass lo get beyond the English
sentinels. After speaking with her for
a short time, he looked kindly upon the
idea, and gave her all the information
which had found its way to himself.
He also wrote with his own band tbe
necessary passport.
'"Now God bless you, my woman!"
said he: "if you succeed, you will save
the honour of the regiment, and if you
fail, and come back to us, you shall
have the thanks of the whole corps for
your dating."
"Sir answered she, "I don't vally my
life the point of a pin when there's sn
much trouble. If Ihe luck isn't very
much against me. I'll make my way to
the place you've a-described; and. please
God, I'll come again with some comfort
for 'ee."
The night, fortunately, was pretty
dark. She dressed herself in sombre
habiliments and set off on her quest.
With great cleverness and patience she
made her way unobserved through the
enemy's lines, and crawling and crouching, then making a run when a chance
offered, she, by following the directions
which she had received, reached the
place which she was seeking, torn and
bleeding from passages through the
the bush, and with ber limbs sprained
from working over rugged ground and
rocks. But she waa at last rewarded by
putting her hand upon the precious
colours. They had been torn from
their stares, and put away under a lock
or in a hollow tree, I forget which.
Her courage revived on having so far
succeeded, and she set to work with
fresh energy. Having taken off hnr
gown, she sewed the colors in between
the stuff and tbe lining. This being
pert of her plan, she h:d been prepared
with needle and thread; but it must j
have been a work of some skill for a
woman, tired and torn at the was, and |
in the dark, to achieve such a job. It
was, however, managed, and the dreta
put on again; and then she stalled to
perforin the other half of her taak.
glowing with the thought that, happen
what might, tbe colours were probably
safe from the enemy. If I recollect
aright, she managed so at lo escape observation altogether, and not to be
challenged at all. Arrived in the Knglish camp, sbe lost no time in extiicat-
rng her cliaige, which just after daybreak she took to the anxiously expectant colonel. His relief and joy
weie beyond expression; as the old lady
put it, he was ready to jump out of his
skin.
For this achievement she got her full
meed of celebrity, and probably some
in re nufi.sUntial earnest of tbe officers'
and soldiers' gratitude. 1 am afraid,
however, that the poor thing did not
benefit in the way of gratuity or pension
from the public purs.*. Tina may h.ve
been because her connections with the
regiment was soon afterwards dissolved
by the death of tier husband, who fell
with harness on his back, and
bis breaat to the foe. Anothr
fight, in which artillery took part, had
ended, as I suppose, in the success of
our side, because the field seems to have
been accessible lo our camp-followers
after the action. The woman went on
to the ground impelled, as she herself
mii l, by a sad misgiving that he had
perished. We know tti.tt there have
been such presentiments in people of all
stations.
"I was as sure that a was dead as if
I'd seed un killed," the old body Baid
yeais after, to a lady from whom she
would often b."g snuff.
"And did you find him?"
''1 made un out. my dear, amongst the
dead and wounded."
"Was there no hope?"
"None.    8tone dead "
"How horribl". How I pity youl
What did you do!'1
"I kneeled beside un, put my arm
round his waist, anil kissed (uy, that I
did) his dear hand."
"Old you not put your arm round his
neck and kiss his lips?"

BL'KYING ALIVE.
The (1 stinguislrcd pliysican S.'r Henry
Marsh used to describe an event which
occuired at the beginning of his medical
career, many years before he. bad reached
the eminence to whnli be afterwards at
tallied. He was called in by the family
doctor —a country practitioner—to attend upon Colonel If , struck dotvn
su ideal* by apoplexy. The tit was a
severe one. All e llu Us to rave the aick
man proved unavailing; he nev.nal ied
and at the end of a few days in all appearance breathed his last. On the
mi,ining of the funeral the two med cal
allenclaiits denned it right, as a last attention, to go ami take leave of the remains of their patient before the c (fin
»as screwed down. The family doct' r,
a jovial florid personage, on whom professional cares sat lightly, had been a
friend, an I ofttimsi boon-oo'upanion, of
the deceased. A bolt e uf port and
glasses stood on a table near the coffin.
'Ab my poor friend!" he said, pouring
out a bumper and tossing it off; "this
was his favourite drink. Rare wine,
too. He knew what was good, anu
never spared it. Many a generous glass
we have had together. I'll drink an
other to his memory," he" cried; and another, and another followed, until the
wine, rapidly gulped down, and at so
unwonted an hour, began to tell upon
the man, and make his eyes glisten aud
his speech grow thick. "Why should
you not pledge menow for the last tune?"
exclaimed the excited doctor, while he
approached the corps", and, to Sir
Henry's inexpressible disgust at such
revolting levity, pressed the glass to the
pale lips. The contents went down the
colonel's throat! Sir Henry BtooJ
amazed, his eyes, which he wis turning
away fpun the unbecoming spectacle,
were riveted on tbe corpse. Thejovial
doctor, sobered in a moment, staugered
back. "Can a dead man drink?" he
cried, "Give him more—morp!" exclaimed Sir Henry, recovering his presence of mind and seizing the b ttle A
tinge so light that ouly a medical eye
could have detected it, began faintly to
suffuse the white face. The d' ctoa tore
away the tliroud and placed his band
upon his hrart. There was no movement; but they lifted the body out of j
the coffin and proceeded to adopt the
measures proper for resuscitation.
Meanwhile tbe bearse stood an tbe door;
the funeral guests wore assembling outside—carriages arriving, while within
all was commotion and suspense—servants hurrying to and fro fetching hot
briers, stimulants, restoratives in obedience to tbe dociors' commands; the
latter plying every means skill could
devise to keep the flickering spark ol
life fiom dying out, and the startled
family, half paralysed by the sudden
revulsion, standing around, gathered in
anxioun, silent groups. Breathlessly
they watched for tidings. For a long
time the result seemed doubtful—doubtful whether the hearse befoie the door,
the gaping coffin, tbe graveclotbes lying
scattered about and trampled under foot
all the grim paraphernalia of death,
hastily discarded in the first wild moment of hope—might not yet be needed
to fulfil their mournful office. But no!
Breath, pulsation, consciousness, were
slowly returning.    Colonel H was

JlVr IN TIMK.
Dinner was over ai last, ami   Mr.
Wulti'i- Carrie, BogUsi  eommlssioner
at the upfouiitry station at  Hutte,-
BaVgb, in    Northern    Imlia,    hud gone
upon tin- veranda with his wife und his 	
two guests, the   colonel and  majvl nf j""" pay  was just   breaking  when   two
the—th light   infantry, to   enjoy th
co il of th,- evening.
On three sides the house was surrounded by  its   on,upon ml, u  large ,n
rrlr.S',1  spurn,   serving   the   pUrpOSO   of U
court yard, but tbe fourth wus only
separated by u small patch of garden
from tbe public road, along which
native women were passing with their
littlo pitchers on thoir hettds.
Tl,,.'sight of th,'in imturally turned
tbe conversation upon a favorite sub
jei't with ull Anglo liirliuirs. viz., the
character of tbe natives nn,I the best
to,'thud of dealing with them,
"There's only one tray," sai,l tbe
colonel, I'lnpliuticulvl, "Tell 'em what
they am to do, make 'em do it, ami
thrash iiii w.ll if they ,1,,n't. That's
my way."
"Well, I venture to differ from ynu
there, Colonel, said .Mr. Ourrie, quietly.
"I've had t,, do some thrashing once or
twice, I own, but most of my native
servants seem to get along very well
without it, and they servo mo excellently
I aasttre you."
"I wish you'd been in my place,
then," retorted the colonel; "you'd
have changed your opinion, I warrant.
Why, the year before last, when 1 hurl
charge of mn battalionj of tbe rascalt
down at Hutteepoor, because there
wasn't another queen's officer within
reach -just like iny confounded luokl
— there was uo getting anything done
unless I did it   myself.     I!v   Jove, sir!
I hud to be everything al one-—my
own quartermaster, my own sergeant-
major, my own caterer, and '
"And your own trumpeter, Colonel
Ann,'sly/" asked Mrs, Currie, with an
arch smile,
Tho oolonel's broad frier reddened
ominously, und an explosion seemed
imminent, when a sudden clamor oi
angry voices from theroad below drew
them all to the front of the veranda.
Tbo,'mis,' of the disturbance was
visible at a glance. Tun half drunken
English soldiers swaggering al, ug tlie
road, had come into violent contact
with anative !n>y who wns running past;
and one of them, enraged at the collision, had felled the poor lad to the
ground, and wus unclasping his owe
belt with the evident intention of bout
ing 1 j sis* unmercifully,
"Serve tbe young whelp right,"
shouted the colonel rubbing Ids bands;
"that's just what tbey all want."
The other offloer, Major Armstrong
—popularly called Major Btrongarm—
was a huge, brawny silent man, win,si'
forte lay in acting rather than in talking.
During the whole discussion be had
snt like a great bronze .statue, never
uttering u word; but at sight of this
man ill-using this child he wok,' up
rather start lingly.
To leap to the ground twelve feet below, to dart across the garden, to vault
over the high stockade beyond, was the
work of a nn,ment for the athletic
major; and in another instant he had
raised the fallen boy tenderly from the
ground, while saving to the foremost
soldier, in low, compressed tone of ii
man who means what be says:
"lie oil' with y„u!"
"And who tbe deuce arc you, sbovin'
yer nose in where you ain't wanted?''
I'rrart'tl tin- infuriated rullian, to whose
eyes tbe major's plain evening dress
bore no token of his being an officer;
"jist you "
.At the sound of that insolent de-
lianco, Armstrong's sorely tried patience
gave way altogether, and the powerful
right hand which hud hewed it way
through a whole squad, nr of Hikb
(•rivalry, foil like a sledge hammer' upon
bis opponent's face, dashing hint to the
ground as if he hail been blown from
the mouth of a gun.
"Well, done, Major Armstrong!"
shouted Mr. Carrie from above. "You
deserve your naain■, and no mistake."
At that fo-rhratdftlrl,' name, the soldier
took to his heels at once; and Armstrong, without even looking at his
prostrate antagonist, proceeded to examine the hurts of the boy.
The latter was sorely bruised in
many places, and the blood was trickling freely over bis swarthy face: but
the little hem still did his best to stand
erect and to keep down every sign of
the pain which he was enduring.
"You're a brave lad, and you'll make
a soldier some day," said the major to
him in Hindoostanee. "Come with
me, and I'll see that no one molests
you again."
Tho lad seized the huge brown hand
which had defended him so bravely,
and kissed it with the deepest reverence;
and the two walked away together.
Six months had come and gone.
Mr. Currie's hospitable house presents
a very different spectacle. The pretty
garden is trampled into dust and mire,
and the bodies of men are lying thick I

Ai that moment a loud cheer from
below startled them both, anrl the next
moment Esotail (tbe "Major's boy," as
'■wry one no" called bini) burst into
the room, with a (flow of unwonted excitement "ir Iris irar'li fate,

major, i argerly.
"I beard the Sepoys say so while I

"Among the bushes yonder!" roared
the colonel, facing around. "Have

"I rlirlit foi-Sahib Armstrong's lake,"
replied the boy, proudly; "because be

The colonel turned hastily away, to

that overspread bis bard face; run!
Armstrong railed slightly as be heard
bim mutter:
"By Jovel these chaps aren't so black
as they're painted, after all."

tbe group. "They :'"'V ""' po-ss n.-ur

"Fear nothing for that, m tadib,"
(madam), answered   the   Hindoo boy,
quietly, "I will carry   them won1, mj
self."
"But how can you possibly do it?"
cried Mrs. Currie, thunderstruck ly
tbe confident tone in which this mere
child spoke of a task from which the
liar,!,-si \etcran might well bave
shrunk.
"Listen, sahib," answered Ismail.  ■!
will slip out iif tbe   I se  and make a
dash into the enemy's lines, as if 1 were
deserting from you to them, anrl vmi
can tell your  people to   fire a shot or
two ai'i' r with blank cartridge as I
go. Then the Sepoys will receive me i
kindly, and I II till them that you are
all dying of thirst, ' and that they need
only wait, one day more to be sure of
iu, so tbat they wont eare to make
another attack. Then, when they have
no suspicion, ami think ['m quite one
of themselves, I'll steal away and slip
across the river."
"Hut you arc quite sure tin'Si pnvs
will believe you?'' asked Major Armstrong, doubtfully."
"They'll believe this anyhow," replied the boy, ddibrately makings deep
gash in bis bare shoulder anil staining
his white frock with the blood as he
glided from the room, followed by
Armstrong.
'flic plan was soon explained to tlie
men bi'hvw. and a moment later Ismail i
dark figure was seen darting like an
arrow across the open space in front of
the building followed by a quick discharge of blank cartridges from thr
marksmen at the loopholes. The sound
of the tiring drew the attention of the
Sepoys, several of whom ran forward
to meet him.
In   another   instant lie was  in %e
midst of th	
"I can scarcely seo for those bushes,"
said Colonel Annesslcy; "but he seems
to be showing them the wound on his
shoulder, and tolling them it was our
doing."
At that moment an exultingyoll from
the enemy came pealing through the
air.
"That's the story of onr being short of
water, for a guinea!' said the majoi;
"it was a very good thought of his. If
it only delays their attack two days
longer, there may he time for help to
arrive yet.
Slowly and wearily the long hours of
that fearful day wore on. The heat was
so terrific that even the native soldiers
of the gurrison could barely hold their
own against it, and the handful of Englishmen were almost helpless.

The married ladies in Victoria may

now we know that a man mid his visa

no one thought of asking n lady t„ pro-

THE ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES.
[Prom tha Maintain! (tiisrdltn.
The approaching struggle, although
like all the Presidential elections in the
United States, the whole country is
raised to an unusual degree of excitement, is likely to be the severest that
has ever takeu place in the great republic. James G. Blaine has received
a very large vote at the Chicago Convention ; but the race is not to the
swift nor the battle to the strong. Mr.
Blaine may be beaten. The reasons
for this are many, although they do not
appear on the surface. The fact is,
that the American people are tired of
the heavy taxation that presses so severely on the lower middling class, as
we may style it—the people with small,
fixed incomes the members ofthe various professions, clerks, and more particularly the laboring classes. Competition and dull times have rendered the
gaining of a livelihood more difficult
than it was some years ago, and the surpluses from the revenue which are not
expended to the popular taste, lead people to think that some modification, at
least, in internal taxes, should be made.
This is not likely to be the case with
Blaine as President. To use the cant
phrase in England during the Beaconsfield Government, Blaine would certainly endeavour to inaugurate "a vigorous
foreign policy." This would involve a
heavy increase in the army and navy,
and render any reduction of taxation,
(impossible. Of course, hia aim U to
j bid for the votes of the bellicose section
of the voters, and he will doubtless poll
'a very large vote, but we do not think
he will be. elected. In the first place
there is a decided split in the republican
'ranks. Blaine is disliked as being cou-
1 neeted with the election of R. B.
I Hayes who is now one of his declured
I supporters. He is also regarded us a
supporter of the monopolists. Jay
Gould has declared himself a suppor
ter of Blaine. The result is that
what ore called the Independents and
a great many of the supporters of Ar
thur, will cast their votes against him.
The democrats were desirous that Ar
thur sliould have received the nomi
nation instead of Blaine, under the
Impression that they could have defeated the former with greater ease. This
we believe to be a fallacy. There is a
very numerous class of voters that
would have supported Arthur, that the
ordinary election agents never calculated upon. The increase of wealth in the
United States, and with that, foreign
travel, has completely changed the
views of the better classes. They an
strongly opposed to the demagogues
and sand lot orators ; they don't like
such displays as that at the Cincinatti
riots, and are, in fact, in favor of law
and order. Arthur has made himself
a prime favorite with these classes ;
his gentlemanly manners, his moderation
in everything relating toforeign politics,
and his hovingkept his hands clean in relation to rings and cabals, has placed
him in a high position in matters Presidential. The admirers of Arthur are
much opposed to Blaine, and will vote
against him if the democrats bring forward anything like a respectable candidate. There is also a large vote from
those who advocate a tariff for revenue—not free trade. There can be no
doubt but that Blaine calculates 11
great deal upon what may now be
termed a dead issue—the Monroe doctrine. This silly cry is not the policy
of the United States, as it arouses the
attention of foreign nations to the progress of the United States in what
may be termed the true Monroe doe
trine; she is quietly but surely bringing the whole of the American continent under her control to wit Mexico, and, of course, all the small neighboring republics. She does not desire
that any noise be 111 ,de about it, because it is being done inexpensively,
whereas, if there was any bluster,
difficulties might be thrown in the way.
Thus, the more far-seeing politicians
of all shades will vote against Blaine.
Now, the democrats have a great card
to play. Much dissatisfaction has
arisen at the policy of the republicans,
more or less arising from their long
tenure of place and their inability to
satisfy all the hungry aspirants for
o Hue. The impression exists that a
change should be tried, and the democrats have a turn. There is the old
story about the rejection of Tilden
which still rankles in the minds of
democrats, and many republicans feel
ashamed of the affair. Thftre is also a
strong feeling amongst many republicans that if Cleveland and Carisle were
nominated, they could conscientiously
step over the traces. Even Bayard
might be palatable, notwithstanding his
supposed sympathy for the lost cause.
With this knowledge it will no doubt,
be the great object of the democratic
leaders to bring forward a candidate
who will be popular, with democrats
and acceptable to dissident republicans
Then it must be remembered that their
long existence in tho cold shades of opposition has created in the democratic
camp a linn determination to succeed
this time if possible, and to that end
they have been straining every nerve.
We feel strongly inclined to think that
the democrats will be successful this
time, but how long they will hold the.
reins of power, is something that cannot be told.
FIGHTING  CANADA.
[Prom the M ilnli'11,1 11,1 .,■ lia„. 1
The big babies of ministers we have
were constantly drumming in our ears
at the commencement of their career,
the dreadful sin of " fighting Canada."
According to their unsavory channel—
the "Colonist"—fighting Canada was as
bad as parricide or breaking a mother's
heart. To save us from such a dreadful sin, became the mission of our sapient ministers, and to this task they set
themsel ves in earnest. It was found
however, that our stepmother, Canada,
was rather mercenary, and that to con-
cilliate her we must give up all claim to
compensation for delays in carrying out
her promise of a railroad ; that we
must make over to her three and a half
million acres of land, and for a small
lollipop that we im-st let her off her obligation to build a graving dock, or at
least that we should accept her promise
to build it "some day." She had some
very good lands of her own which sre
had given her to induce her to build a
railroad,  and theso we wanted her to
{sell to help us make a country ; this
the old lady promised to do ; but having nd herself of the obligation to us
for compensation, and having secured
tie three and a half million acres of
' land, she now finds herself so busy with
other matters that she cannot find time
ti keep her engagements with us. Our
noodles of ministers began to "smell u
mice" some time ago, and sent the tallest member of the quartette to try and
frighten the old woman into doing justice by British Columbia, but she only
Liuirln'il at him, chucked him under
the chin, and told him to be ag"r«l bar*
aud she would do something for him
some day. He pretended to get into a
pet and sent won! to his chums to kick
out the Chinese if they showed themselves about the door; the old lady
gave him a sound lecture and he war
glad to inform his chums that the Chines" mlsbi curie- iii. The f.irt is, that
this old lady has a true "stepmotherly"
regard for British Columbia, and will
take care that her own offspring are
carefully provided for first, and she does
not regard it as any sin to take a few
articles from the wardrobe of the latest
addition to her flock to clothe her firstborn. This fact has now become patent, and it begins to dawn on the feeble intellects of our childish ministers,
that the old lady is not only sr llishly
inclined but rather unreliable. The
consequence of this discovery is, that,
our ministers, in their silly and impotent rage, are inclined to do what none
of our previous ministers ever did, and
what they pretended they were not going to do—fight Canada. 0, course,
the old lady sits back iu her easy chair
and shakes her matronly sides at the
absurd efforts of these big boys to look
like ministers, and she will be greatly
amused with our doughty Attorney-
General when he arri ves at Ottawa to
try and wheedle or bully the mistress of
the house. It will be seen from the
foregoing that the impudent clap-trap
of our so-called ministers about conciliating Canada was the merest bosh,
made use of to deceive the green ones
amongst the members of the Legislative Assembly, and although such a
trick would be ridiculed outside of this
Province, it was eagerly swallowed by
men unaccustomed to be humbugged.
Before the honest John Government
succeeded by fraud in scrambling into
power, this Province held a very dignified position at Ottawa, It is true
that some of the representatives there
did not shine in the brightest colors,
but they all did their best to obtain justice for our Province, The demand lor
compensation, to which we were justly
entitled was constant; and the request,
on the part of the Ottawa authorities
for more land than they wero entitled
to by their agreement, was as steadily
resisted But in an unlucky moment
we allowed the honest John ministry to
crawl into the treasury benches, and
they lost no time in conveying to the
Ottawa Government that they were
prepared to do anything, so long as the
Federal Government would enable them
to hold their places. Like a penny
showman, they estimated the public intelligence at a very low standard. They
supposed that they had dandled the
graving dock little black doll sufficiently before the eyes of the mainlanders to
make them glad to get rid of it at any
sacrifice, and then they tickled them
with the idea that we should get a certain large sum for the dock, which was
to be spent on the mainland alone.
They were idiotic enough to suppose
that mainlanders could be easily cheated, as they counted on the proceeds of
the dock to feed the hungry maws of
their supporters. They supposed that
if they secured the Island railway—no
matter if they gave away the whole
Province for it—they would be strong
enough in Victoria to bear down all opposition. The eagerness with which
the aid of Canada was sought toachieve
these two points, was clearly evident to
Sir Alexander Campbell when he was
here, and lawyerlike, he pressed for the
best bargain he could make for his clients, the Eastern Provinces. He was
rather surprised, wo are sure, at his
own success, and we have heard it
stated that what he had done was not
favorably received by his colleagues ; in
fact, they were ashamed of the manner
in which they had taken advantage of
this young Province. But the thing
was done, and now they will insist on
the terms of the Settlement bill,
we recede from the terms
of Union made for us by Messrs.
Trutch, Helmeken, and Carrall. The
honest John Government have managed to do more mischief to this Province than all the previous Governments put together, since confederation.
If they have done more in one way
than another, it is to force us into the
unpleasant position of being compelled
to 'Tight Canada."

The Presidential boom in atill Dwelling on
the gale that blows Irom Chicago, where the
K--puh.icau Convention io l-ciug held. The
excitement is v y great, of course, and the
I ifij!'.'T.ii.H are watching their rivals an nnx-
ioualy as a cat watchei. a in..u-<-. Tlo- aan*
didates that are not dark horses are Blaine,
the plumed Knight from Main*-, and Pro-i-
dent Arthur, who obtained access to Lhe
White House per favor of the late (.'harks
(•uiteau. As regards numbers in the Convention, they are al-out equally matched,
and hence the probability of a <lark horse—.
Edmunds from Vermont most likely—winning tlie race at a canter; who shall say after
this that under uui v-o-J suffrage the choice
of the people is elected usnominee of a party
much less as President, If Blaine does not
receive the nomi tuition he will be counted a
peculiarly unfortunate politician. At the
convention which nominated Hayes in 1870,
he had the large-it number on the first ballot
and yet uot sufficient to win; at the convention of IBM) he stood close to (.rant, but
neither of them was successful, and nil the
indications point to .t like disappointment
for Blaine to-morrow. They say hin sons
have a barrel containing $100,WO which is
to bs pretty freely used in the purchase of
dck'gHte.H whose mindH are not made up.
Arthur is playing a masterly game of inac-
tivit.y, He is in Washington and sees to it
tliat all hll Cabinet arc there too. He will
not allow them to go to Chicago and stump
for him, and this negative action of his will
have its effect on the country. Still better,
uo linger can be pointed to any act of his
administration whieh will uot bear the
closest scrutiny.
The democrats look on with profound interest, as I have remarked. They would
prefer to see Arthur nominated, being pretty
positive they can bcut him iu his own state
by opposing Tilden to him. Tilden can carry
Now York beyond doubt, and it is on the
empire state with its large electoral vote
ihe contest will pivot, Tammany will gofor
Tilden too, with enthusiasm, while for any
other democratic nominee it might be uncertain.
Next to the Chicago convention, public

him safely over the border into the Dominion
of Canada. American newspapers make a
great show of righteous indignation over tho
unwillingness of Canada to give up Eno, forgetting that hero in New York, as in Philadelphia, Boston, and other large American
cities, there are Colonial of Canadian
swindlers whom the Dominion authorities
would like to havo extradited, forgetting

The newspapers are agitating the union of
New York and Brooklyn in order to have a
great Imperial city, which will iu time forge
ahead of London and whip all creation in the
way of size, wealth, and population. Brooklyn is, however, not as willing as "Barkis"
was ; bIic is not su heavily taxed at present
as the Bister city, nor so given up to boss
rule, und besides, her citizens are proud of
her individuality ; an individuality she would
lose if absorbed by New York. There is little doubt that New York, Brooklyn, New
Jersey, Hohoken, Williamsburg, and other
cities around New York harbor, will form
one city iu the future, but thu time is uot
yet.
Wc are making groat capital here about
the discontent in Manitoba, fanning the

laboring under deficits and monopolies, all of
which is refreshing, seeing that monopoly
stares us iu the face at every turn and anaconda-like, threatens to strangle the republic it the republic doesn't anticipate matters
by strangling Monopoly before it becomes
omnipotent. Monopoly haa hold of the
press atpresent. The New York "Herald,"
"Telegram," ami "Truth" are owned by Gordon Bennett, who partly owns the new cable ;
Gould control* the "Tribune;" Cyras Field
the "Mail" aud! "Express;" and so on.
'Truth" ia nominally owned by Thomas
Connery, for so long chief editor and manager of the New York "Herald," but every
one knows Bennett is the controlling power,
and will furnish all the money uecessary to
make it a success.
The tide of immigration continues to roll
hither from Europe iu volume ever increasing. It comes at the rate of 2000 a day from
Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, and Ireland ;
it comes in its squalor aud its ignorance, but

and descendants of immigrants, and so let us
not be hard on the last comers, though,
certes, they do not look nice.

The case of Jobnst"iic rs. Clark* haa
been appealed, and will MM op for a re-
Hearing befoie a full bench in the Supreme
Court, on the 26th inat.
Foe aome time past postmaster Watkrs
has been mentally ,lera„K«l, ami oil Tuesday
last he wa* induced to go to Westminster.
There he wa* taken in charge by the proper
authorities, and we hope to hear of hia speedy
recovery. :	
Thans".—Dr. Heslop wishes to tender
bis most sincere thanks to all those who
have, by their constant attendance and
watchful care, contributed so much to the
recovery of Mrs. lledop from her late aevcre
illness. 	
Mb. iJeo. Thompson is making preparations to build himself a handsome residence
oa Ottawa Street It will be a seven-roomed
cottage, and the site ch"seu is oo a gently
alopiiiK hillside, cominaudinu; a beautiful and
eitensive view of the bay aud surrounding
country.
Ths trout are jumping lively In .he Coquitlam, and that picturesque stream is visiter! daily by a number of local disciples of
I.aak Walton.    Those who know the shady
fools wherein tho fish do sport get their bas-
,'U tilled, and the others got—left.
By the fall of two largo treea some time
during Monday night, the Clark Koad was
blocked for several hours on Tuesday. Mr.
Lundbom bad the obbtructions removed.
The blockade was just at the top of the hill,
outside of I'ort Moody.
Church Notes.— The disagreeable weather of Sunday had a decidedly dauiirenrng
effect oo the attendance at Church and Sunday School. Rev. Mr. Iilanohard had au in-
tereating discourse, however, ami the seivice
waa appreciated l>y those present... ..Rev.
Mr. iiobaou conducted the Methodist service.
Ws had thi pleasure of looking over the
plans for Capt. Clarke's new residence, soon
to be erected on the corner of Johns and
Albert streets. It will be a very fine structure, and from its commanding situation will
be an ornament to the city.
Persolal.—H. H. Horary, Ottawa, Dr.
and Mist Smith,  Portland,   were in  Port
Moody this week Mi*s Florence Clarke,
eldest daughter of Capt Jas. A. Clarke, who
has been attending school in Victoria fjr
some months past, returned to ber home on
Wednesday last.... Captain Clarke has re'
turned from a business trip to Victoria.
Is it Ki.Kri'oMANiA?—There is a gentleman in Port Moraiy who has an unfortunate
habit of picking up odd. and ends here and
there, anrl ap printing them to his own use.
Pieces of sidewalk, etc., are beginning to
dissppear, and people are takiuu notice of
the fact. It would be well for the gentle-
man to give over the practice before the law
interferes.
Tim Qi'kkm Struct Crossiko.—Some
Weeks ago a petition was forwarded to the
'Jovernment Agent at Victoria, praying thnt
acioasing bo built at the intersection of the
railway and Queen street. This week an
answer was received, to the effect that it was
a part of Mr. llnderdonk'a contract tn put
in all necessary crossings, and as Queen street
ssemeil to be the most eligible point, a suitable crossing would be built in due course.
Thirk is war amongst the stage men, and
the traveling public are filled with joy
thereat. By working tbe wire,, aright, a
passenger can now go from here to Westminster for nothing, with a cigar thrown in,
and it ia really amusing to seo three or four
stage drivers hovering around a solitary
psasenger, each ono offering greater inducements than tbe other to induce him to go by
tliat line.
8krioci8I.Y Ili On Thursday of last week
Mrs. Dr. Heslop waa taken suddenly and seriously ill, and foraeveral days her life hung
by a single thread. Careful nursing and constant medical attendance averted the danger,
however, and the lady is now in a fair wny
towards recovery. The doctor succumbed
to fatigue aud ruifciet.y nn Tries-day, and was
quite ill for Beveral days, but we are pleased
to state that ho is now able to resume hia
place ia our midst.
Movsu.—That jolly coterie of gentleman
who have ao long kept bachelor's hall in "the
bungalow" attached to the telephone office,
have changed their quarters, and now occupy
the upper portion of Mr. Gilbert's new building on Douglaa atreet. \Ve hope these gentlemen will always Foster the remembrance
of the many pleasant Weeks spent in the old
"bungalow," and that many Moore of the
•rune kind may atill await them. They
have an Arm-atrong enough to—but Ah Mo?
this thing baa gone far enough.

the locomotive and three cars leaving the

combined to cinch the other members of tbe
retiring School Board and elect new men in

ftorters there is not the slightest reason to
iclieve- in fact the state of the polls ot tl
■ lose gives plain proof to the contrary. But
there is nothing so fickle ns public opinion,
and our citizena forgot for the time being
how much tbey are indebted to Capt. Clai ke
fur the establishment „f a school in I'ort
Mood)-. We bad hoped to escape the igno
lliiny of publishing the name of McGillivray
again in these columns, but his uction in
this matter is so suggestive of the viper that
turns and ating its benefactor, that we are
foiecd to call public attention to it. The
government,—if they must havo an emissary
in Port Moody—should sebet some man who
will not commit the silly mistake of attempt
ing to accomplish the defeat of the only
person wbo hasever done them a real scr
vico in the place. It was at once an ungrate
ful and an ungraceful piece of business.

ANNUAL SCHOOL MEETING AND
ELECTION  OF TRUSTEES.
Scwt's Emulsion, at the "Colonial Drue
*«ore," *
The first annual meeting of the Port
Moody lobool district convened ut the Court
House, in I'ort Moody, on 16Ul inst., at 11
a, in. Col. I*. S. Hamilton was cfaoMn to
act as Chairman, and Mr. Win. .McLean as
.Secretary.
Mr. U. )l Kelly, on behalf of the School
Trustees, presented the following report:—
HKI'nKT OF Tltl'STKKs, POBT MOODY SCHOOL.
"The tmntcee begleave to report that they
engaged Mian A. Dallas as teacher, and
school opun-d on the Jstli of May, and is
now prospering ©oat favoribly. The nuni*
her of children on the roll ia twenty-six, aud
the average att* ndance ulmut twenty-two.
The hoard have much pleasure in emigratu
la ing the public generally tin the position
of educational affairs in this town, and on
retiring from office have to thank not only
the public. Imt the government also, f >r
their liberal support, and trust the same
coiwidorati"!. may be extended to their sue
eessnrs to enable them to carry out the
cherished hope of making tho public school
at Port Moody second to none in the prov
ince. "    ,o.      ,.     H. B. Kkli.v, ) »,
The report waa adopted, and the thanlca of
the meeting tendered tothe retiring trustees.
The Chainnan then announced that tht
meeting was open to leceive nominations
and at 12 o'clock the following gentlemen
were announced as c'lndid'it^s:—H. li. Kelly,
Geo. Annacd, J. A. Clarke, Allan Noon,
and F. F. Nelson.
Polling commenced at 12 o'clock, and it
was announced that 4 o'clock Mould bu the
hour lor cloning—this announcement being
based on a miHappr.-heusinn ou the part of
the Chairman, and it was discovered a few
minutes before thu close of the polls that 8
o'clock was tbe hour set in the amendment
to the "School Act of I87D." A consider*
able number of voters, several of them ladies,
were thus debarred from casting their ballots, but it was through no fault of any of
tho friends of the a'overal candidatea. The
vote polled wns smaller than nt the former
election, and great care was exercised in sec
ing that none but legal votes were cast, it
being a v ell-known fact that a number of
people lacking the necessary qualifications
had voted at the former election. The nm
ber of votes cast was thirty-six, divided amongst the various candidates as follows:—
R.  B.   Kelly  23
Geo. Annaud 22
Jas. A. Clarke   15
William Noon   II
Frederick Franklin Nelson 7
The chairman then declared li. B. Kelly,
Geo. Annaud, andJas. A. Clarke as school
trustees elect, to serve for the term of three,
t«o and one years, respectively, in the order
above named.   The meetingthen adjourned.
AN OUTSIDE OPINION.
A correspondent of the Winnipeg "Free
Press," writing from Victoria on May 2(Jth,
haa the following to say of Port Moody :
"At Port Moody, the terminal city of the
C. P. I-!., a great deal of improvements are
being made. New roads, leading from the
future metropolis in various directions, are
being constructed by the Government and
local enterprise. Tho Bite of the city is being rapidly cleared, and when denuded of
the timber, presents a different aspect entirely to what it does with the immense
monarchs of the forest in their full growth.
Pure spring water is to be found everywhere
pouring down the rising ground surrounding
the city. At present there are about 100
buildings erected and more going up. The
Government wharf is asubstantial one, 2,000
feet long, by 200 feet in width. The grading of the track from Port Moody to a considerable distance above Yale where the Fraser is crossed is completed so as to enable
construction trains to run. Ballasting will
now speedily follow, and then traffic will begin from Port Moody to Kamloops. Real
estate in Port Moody is now very high and
still goiug up. It ia reported tbat close upon
1,500 acres have already been surveyed into
city lots. Outlaying properties there to-day
are higher than similarly located property
in Winnipeg was  during the palmy days of
the "boom." In the basine-u portion of the
city lota are sold by the foot, at prices ran-
gmg from *?20 and upwards. Port Moody

THK  PACIFIC  RAILWAY.
It is greatly to be regretted that au ent-r-
prise tike thu Canadian Pacific ItaiJway, in
whose moooM the people of ('.tnada have so
deep an interest, should bt-marl • the object
of so much lying oppowti*<n in a certain portion of the prtJMt Se-arcely a day passes
that some new story of linaneial enibamM-
mciit, or of fresh demands Upon the government, ia not published. The despatches
from Ottawa in the Globe and the new York
papers which appear to. vie with each other
in the manufacturing of canard*, are invariably designed to uraMi want of c -iindenee in
the ultimate success of the enterprise, or to
throw doubt upon the good faith nf the company charged with carrying it out lire
is a specimen, taken from the Nnw York
Timet, whieh reached here yesterday:—
"Ottawa, Ontario, May 28,—Mr. •■renfull
a .New Voik banker, had an interview with
Sir John Macdonald, the Dominion premier,
here to-day in reference to the prospects of
the Canadian Pacific Bsilway. It Ins been
ascertained that Pros,dent St.-phi-u has found
it Impossible to diapoae of any stoek iu England since the Dominion Government has
refused to release their mortgage upon the
road, and some other means of raising money most be adopted. Mr. Stephen will return to Canada ut once, and a meeting of tlie
Canadian Pacific ihftreholdori will !>e called
to consider a proposal to issue bonds. As
these would have little value while the mortgage remains on the r.ad, an effort will be
made to induce too government lo guarantee
5 per cent, interest on them for '10 years. If
this can Lwaccomplished, an effort will bo
made to float the bonds in London and New
York. '
This comingnnder ihe notice of Mr, Ortn*
fell, he promptlyoontradiote lu the follow'
Ing term*i "Afr. Orenfell, referring to a
"despatch from Ottawa published in a mom-
"ing paper, says tint President Stephen had
"nut attempted to dilpoee of any stock in
"London, nml, u the government loan will
"provide ample funds to finish the road,
"there is no intention of obtaining moiiev
"from any other source." That denial should
certainly have influence in making people
very cautious about accepting the sensational statements whieh are telegraphed from
Ottawa, in this case the c 'iitradietion of
the story bas eomo promptly af er its publication. Bat in many eases It has uot hmm
considered worth while t> nntico thu stories.
In fact, If they were all contradicted that
were untrue, the ofBcors of tlie company
would have their hauda fu'l. M/hat is sur
prising is that these sta'ementash ihl meet
with any credence 7 ;, all Th ■ leg! ill tion
of laat *e«ion waa designed t-> k\v« the company fr«»m the necessity .,f ^olngon t-. the
tnoii-y ni irkei for funds wi h ttliicitoeom-

as well as the juatitieat'on.   Tim o position

United States wid h v era luflui iu
1 by
Canadian Pacific Kailwav, with tho object of
making the trade of the Northwet-t tributar}
to American railway.- anrl  American   infrir-
ests. To defpat that opposition was a national duty on the part of tbe people of < '■■■-
Uada, and to that cud the* company were
placed beyond tne influence of the bulls and
bears of \V»1I Street. They gave up Untight as well as tin; power to raise money
from outside sources. They bound themselves to confine their energies to the taik
of completing their contract; and the government ou its parr granted u loan, taking amnio socurity for i's repayment, sufficient to
enable them to carry on the work to completion. To start stories immediately that
the company is embarrassed because it cannot do what it h as nut authorized to do,
what it has just b'-en relieved from tho necessity of doimr, shows thu confidence which
the annv of Ottawa correspondents have in
tho gullibility of the public .Mr. Greflfell'i
contradiction in this case is complete and
emphatic, but we have no hope it will stop
the sensationalists. They will go on with
their falsehoods in the belief that contradic
tions never fully overtake them, aud that if
they do no serious hurt to tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company, they may ut least
BGCOmplf'h what is after all their chief object, tlie creating of dis'rust as to the future
of the country itself.—Montreal Gazette

There is no longer any doubt that by
recent treaty of Tien-Tain France has obtained the exclusive right to trade with the
Chinese provinces bordering. Tins concession is an infraction of the m nt favored nation clause in treaties previously nu di wit i
other Western countries, aud when the value
of the commerce thus m-mop -li/.cd is genet-
ally recognized, tho United States wiil fnin
Kngland and other treaty | owers iu protest'
ing against the violation of then established
rights. Why is it that Kronen i* anxious lo
keep in her own hands the traffic with
Vunnan aud the contiguous provinces of
KuaUrg-S* and Kuiiug-Tong ?
Of this moantainuna district, which forms
the southwestern corner of the Middle
Kingdom, and from which the Mek -iig. Song*
koi, ami Yang-tsc Kiaug diverge, something
bas boon made known to geographers by the
travell ami writings of Margary, Urown,
Vale, aud Baron Kiehthofen, but their observations have not as yet entered into the
stock of facta informing and moulding Knglish and American opinion. It is clear,
however, trom the concurrent testimony of
those and other authorities, that tbe mineral wealth of Vunnan is greater and mure
varied than that of any other part of the
Chinese empire. Gold is found in the sand
of aome riven, and Filver mines were worked
successfully up to the outbreak of the Mo*
hatumodau rebellion* There are, toward the
north of tho province, depo-dts of rook salt,
and buds of anthracite as well as bituminous coal are encountered at many points of
the Central plateau. Although only the
most primitive processes of reduction are
employed, load und i-on are produced in
such quantities as to leave a large
surplus that would l>e available for export. Copper is abundant, ami even during
the civil war the mines in Ning yueu-Fu continued to make considerable imtpnts of copper and zinc ores. The existence of mines of
quicksilver is asserted by more than one ex-
explorer, and it is also said, though on this
report we lay no stress, that rubies and other
precious stoncR are relatively plentiful and
cheap in Vunnan. The tin mines, of whieh
we shall speak presently, could probably be
made the most prolific in the world. While
such are the mineral resources of the province, its valleys are fertile and produce
silk, gum, tea. and opium, the two commodities last named having hitherto formed with
impreasion on the French officials, and Du-
puia, who baa remained their adviaer
through'.ut the wtt with Annam, would naturally ur/e lOtOej to vcaie a monopoly of N

For some years past tlie French authorities in Cochin China and Tonuuin have been
much more keenly alive to the value of Yunnan than the diplomatic and consular representatives of England and the United States
in eastern Asia. Their primary source of
information was the expedition under Don-
dart de Lagree and Francois Oarnier, which,
in 186ti-6S, ascended the Mekong to its
source, pmved the non-navigability of that
river, and brought back s minute report on
the resources of southwestern China. Then,
in 1871, came the first voyage of Dupuis, a
French trader, who, having penetrated Yunnan hy way of the Yang-tse Kiang in search
for healthv silk worms, crossed the province
to Mang rtao, and, embarking with a single
servant, followed the Song-koi down to the
Gulf of Tonquin. The true route to Yunnan
waa thus revealed, and two years later Du-
puia carried up the river a cargo of arma to
the Chinese Governor at Mang-Hao, receiving his pay in bar tin, which was sold at a
great profit in Hong Kong. This conclusive
proof of the advantages derivable from acon-
trol of the tin mines of Yunnan made a deep

could be calmed, the young man, as usual,
wus asked Ins name, and, covering his face,
he replied that he was Cuitnt Riccnrdo
Strosa. s legitimate descendant of aim of the
most illustrious 'amulet ill Italy. The wife
ia also of x very good family. They 1,., I
fallen in I>vo with each other and run away,
travelling about fn disguise in order not to
be discovered. At last being penniless,
they entered the above family as servauts.
Fortunately, th'ir innocence was proved aa
rlear in, day. III. coincidence of their flight
,ith the day of ths robl ery was thoroughly
Xplainsd, and they w-ero set at libe.-ty uiuirl
the cheer of the whole court.
The late great conductor. Sir Michael
Costa, bud wonderful rapidity of eye,
ear, and glance,    lie bud a habit of lilt-
aulng tothe musicians likely to go wrong
ind the}* never escaped hint. On one
oceusion, when the swan in ''Lohengrin''
failed in make its appearance at the
right moment, he called out, "Where's
that goose?" At another time, in "William Tell." when a sionn, accompanied
by the usual atmospheric disturbances,
ought   to   have   rnrie   and    did    not,
•There's Ihe thundet?" roared   Costu,
"Gone to dinner," wus the answer.
Mario hail not even a piuno in bis
room of later years, and was never known
tr) Ming, except on one occasion, when
the Queen of Italy begged for a few
notes to give her un idea of what his
voice was in its |,rime. He tbon sang
her nn old favorite romance by Donizetti, "Uagio d'Amor Parea,"an effective piece written for fnrlagcnova, u baritone. But it gave no tdeaof the sweet
true tenor timbre that used to drive the
ladies of SO many countries   wild.
The H'Ovley family can l,„ traced as
far back as the Norman Conquest. William the Conqueror created bis friend
and follower, Kobert D'Oyley, Baron
lluirkmorton, A. I). 1007, and granted
him valuable lurid on the couditinn of
the yearly tender of a table cloth of
three shillings value at the feast of St.
Michael. Agreeably to the fashion of
tha time, the ladies of the I.'Oyley family were accustomed to embroider
and ornament the qiiitrent table cloths;
hence these cloths becoming curiosities
and, accumulating in the course of
years, were at length brought into use
as napkins at the royal table, and called D'Oyleys.
Truth was not quite right iu its story
about Bismarck complaining of being
checked for whistling on the Sabbath
In Scotland. What be said was: "The
English and American mode of Sunday
observance ie aterrible form of tyranny.
The first time I set foot on English soil
was nt Hull, and I began whistling in
the streets, when an English fellow traveller said, 'Ob, pray don't.' 'Why,'
said I, 'is it prohibited?' 'No,' was the
reply, 'it's not against the law, butdou't
you know it's Sabbath?' I was so angry
that I left the town at once and took
tho next steamer for Edinburgh."
Here the Cnancellor seems to have
whistled along Princes street with impunity.
A gentleman writes to the London
Times; "I have recently twice crossed
the Atlantic, in both instances in steamers of great tonnage and the highest
speed, and I have gone down to my
cabin at night lo turn in with a feeling
tbat nothing but the .Providence which
sits np aloft, and, in looking after poor
Jack, has to perform the same duty for
passengers, could avert a fatal accident
if any vessel apjiroached ours at the
Bnme speed. Through dark, thick nights
amid blinding storms of riBii, still we
drove ahead at fifteen or Bixteen knots
(seventeen or eighteen miles an hoar
rougblv), with tbe most reckless disregard of what we may chance to meet.
It is true that every known precaution
was taken, lookout men on both sides
forward, and tbe officers most vigilant,
but still I contend that with two vessels
of such immense length it would have
been absolutely impoesible to sheer ont
ofthe way of a vessel lying to under
close reefs or a steamer coming end on."
