nnforiiinati'ly ill in i-ed when  one day
my bailiff came   back   with  a load of
stinw. ami sent in to say that  the new
i.-nuiii's  head man   hail at   last taken
the   ii'iriainder   of   the  straw   at my

straw in   the barn.    Thinking   it was
nil right. I sent over a few duyi after-
ivardi lor the money     But the farmer,

li nl no right of entry after March 25th.
Tim i-traw had   been   weighed in   this
way :   Twenty "boltings '   or  bundles

country districts there there is 110 big

heard   of   uny   disagreement.     What
with my lying in bed and getting  dull
as ditch-water, and what with my excusable desire to punish Bunshy, who,
I tho rgh ,  must he   a rogue—and, in-

shortly receiving notice lhat   nn some
date, 1I1 ,iniil about   a 111 nth, I   was to
pretent  njyself at Westminster—of all
places -with   my   witnesses.     Westminster   ivus 150   miles   off,   and the
straw   waa worth £5I>    It seemed an
extravagant »ay of going to work,   but
I ili.liioi know bow tostopit. Biuliefore
go ng to Westminster it wa   necessary
n>Uke   my  witnesses   overtosee"my
lawyer."    The   propi ious day  chosen
t'nr this   pleasant  outing   was   Easter
Monday.    I lived ijuite in the country,
hut i'i-ar to n line ot railway c nuccting
t -to liirg-1 towns, iu one of which dwelt
'my    lawyer''      The   carriages   were
ciainiiii-d lull , f lover<,  some   of them
funny oin-s to  look at,   and there was
very   lit In   room    for any   one   else.
Win 11,   ihren   hours   aft-r  time,   we
r-niii. il his oliice, the la" yer was out.
We ran frantically aliout thedirty town,
el owing hosts of lovers most impolitely
iuti   the gutter.    When   we   arrived
naming   at  the  bar   of the  ••Spotted
Saw, ' til" la tyer hnd just   Started for
ihe "Blue   Boar."    On reaching   this
hotel, we   "ret*  told   he was   in   ihe
"White Horse."    After a stern-chas^;
we ran him to ground at the "Fig and
Whistle,"   nnd   very   loath    was he to
leave.    But    he left   at   last,   and we
went to his office to make o.ir   deposi-
tioiin as I think he called   them.     By
ih" time   wn had   done   so,   thf slow
train by   which   we had   intended re-
urn ing had left; so we went by a fast
rain wl ith   flrw past  our   station at
sixty    lies   au hour,   and w re jolted
home   tight   miles   in a   cab.    Next
morning 1 fi It as it I had   already had
quite euough of law ; but alas ! it was
only cumiir ucing.    On Saturday night
-■---,. , telegram to say that I must be
a \\   rtminster on  Monday   morning
next with my witnesses.    So  on   Sun-
Jay ovening we started off in   state to
drive to the big   manufacturing  town
eight   miles oil,   as no trains left our
litti station on that day.    We went in
four wheel   trap.    I   sat in  front
'  the bailifl, and drove.   Something
;one wrong with my inare.   and I
irul to borrow a lean   and ancient
I   from a   neighboring   milkman,
ind sat the  other  witness (whom
were  only taking up to clinch   the
tter, ns you  finish a good  Ineakfasi
li an egg) and my groom, a little fat
.riuiitrified  fellow with a face   like an
over 'ipe gooseberry.     As   vre neared
the town, wo passed  the whole   population ' streaming  out to a   '■peopla'a
- p4rk" in the neighborhood. We wem
greeted with roars .of laughter, the
origin of which I could not at first
understand, as it was impossible that
all theae people could know we were
going to Westminster ou a "straw"
caw. We had started iu a hurry, and
1 had hail but little time to study tbe
get-up of my companions. But, moved I
by a louder shout than ordinary, I!
look- d round, and taw that the old
witneas on thn back teat had got him
self up for thn occasion. Notwithstanding the delicate hints I had given'
hiu) on the subject of bis attire, he
had d-aiti-erred from its timeh-nored
grave an old beaver hat, steeple shaped,
brown with age, and with a nap as).ng
as a crop ot af ei-ioath A thick red
woolen comforter was wrapped aeveral
times round his neck, aud his weather-
beaten parson #»s arrayed in a coat of
aondroos and antediluvian make,
wliich bad perhaps once been black.
In hit mouth be held a short black
p pe about two inches in length, through
which te was inhaling the fragrant
weed with a peculiar suck of enjoy mint
which was beard above tbe rattle of
tbe wheels. Had tbe old witness de
soended from bis perch he would have
l*een greeted still more vociferously.
Owing to an accident when working
on the railway—as he had often told
me, • waggon load of rone tons weight
lay on him for 1 forget bow long
both bit kdees bent outwards in the
aame direction. His corduroy trousers
had been recently washed, and had
evidently shrank in the unaccustomed
operation. They did not reach the
top of bis heavy laced boots, from tbe
front of one of which all the leather
was cot away, as he had recently in
jured his fo A. I wat' always losing
this man in London, though after a
day nr two I found out tbat I could
always hit him off agtin by going back
tothe last passage or doorway which
we had passed. There he would be,
sucking industriously at his short pipe,
and trying—generally in vain -to
light a tiny remnant of tobacco nt tbe
bottom ol it.
We slowly travelled up to Euston,
which we reached late at night; and
tho witnesses were installed in lodgings near the station. I left them
there, with directions when and where
to meet mc next dny. On my arrival
at Westminster in the morning, I found
them already forming the centre of an
admiring crowd, not so demonstrative,
but apparently more appreciative, than
our country friends. On going into
court we were told that we v/ere not
wanted for that day, but must appear
in good time on the morrow, Being
allowed to depart by the London agent
of our country hwyer, who took upon
himself kindly to regulate all our movements, I decided to take the witnesses
for an excursion down the river as far
as Greenwich. As nei'her of them
had even seen anything more nearly
approaching to a ship than a canal -
boat, and very few oven of theso, I was
in li pes that the sight of the Thames
covered with shipping would have
drawn from them some sign of wonder
or admiration. Not a hit of it. Red
Indians could not have shown more
nonchalance. They wou'd hardly glance
at the hundreds of ships which wn
passed ; and to all my inquiries as to
what they thought of it, the only
answer was, "Well, yes, sir; it's not so
bad." They deign -d, however, to admire Qreenwich Hospital, where I left
them, with injunctions to meet, the
boat on the pier at a certain lime
The boat came, but the witnesses
didn't. I soon, however, saw them In
■ he distance coursing nimbly—the old
man with the hat making the running
—round the grass plots on the inside
of the high   iron fence   which hounds
he Hospital grounds, vainly seeking
an exit,, and evidently contemplating
the propriety of impaling themselves
hy climbing the railings. On thn next
day we were again dismissed from
Westminster about noon, aud went to
the Abbey, where, contrary to custom,
the witnestes were greatly struck by
the celebrated representation of the
negro with Brussels sprouts on Lis
head instead of hair. They exclaimed
together that they "wat very like."
They also deigned tu notice one of
the vergers, who, they thought,
"favoured the Rev —," meaning
_!. vesp.-cli'd n .or of our village. Of
ti. i'1'iiinii. i.(j monuments or of the
Chapter-house they took no notice
whatever, though I have tince thought
that this whs affectation.
By tht morning of the third day it
wot apparent (or bo we fondly imagined) thai the hour which was to
decide our fate wat at hand. A case
wat suddenly withdrawn, and Smith v.
Buntby was called on. The court was
a miserable place enough, and probably
intended by its architect to typify the
mare of law, into whioh an entry can
be easily made, hut out of which you
have some difficulty in escaping. On
entering you saw, aliout four feet in
front of your nose, a tall partition
about ten feet high, forming the outer
court of a sort of fly trap, and communicating with the inner court by a
small door like opening at each end of
tbe partition. About this outer way
went on a perpetual rushing and crushing, with Bounds of loud whispering,
laughing and 1 daresay crying. Close
to the door at which you entered was a
little bunch made fast to the jArtition,
and capable of seating, or unseating
four thin people about 4 feet high.
Tbit wat to comraodioutly   placed,
that a dwarf sitting thereon would
bave to double up his legs and put his
to s away under it —where there waa
uo room for them-unless be wanted
thuin crushed. Above this bench wa*
an inscription in Iciters of*gold, informing those wbom it might concern
tuat it waa "for the accommodation of
witn •*-'-.- A* siitnesses were fre
queutly kept kicking their heels about
this court for days -perhaps even for
months and years—it cannot be said
that the arrangements for their comfort were very extravagant. About
this charming outer ring you might
wander without seeing or hearing
more than a murmur of what was
going on inside ; and perhaps the less
you saw or heard tbe better. I amused
myself by trying- to '"spot" our adver
sary, whom 1 had never seen Three
times did I p ck him out as 1 thought,
and three times th- imaginary Bunsby
appeared in another case, got settled,
or settled somebody else, and took
his envied departure.
In the court itself th re was not, if
I remember rightly, any room for the
puhlic. The whole body (and soul) of
the place was occupied by rows of
hiieSess bewigged barristers who were
pretending to be busily taking notes;
but who, 1 suspect, were sketching
striking figur.s in judge or jury, and
quizzing the mom successful counsel's
brogue. One was struck, immediately
on entering the trap, with the idea
that there were too many spiders for
the flies One or twu jolly looking old
spiders appeared to get more than
their fair share, and to leave very
little for the hungry juniors. High
above, as you entered, red-faced,
clothed in a hot red gown, backed by a
flaming curtain, against which his
white wig shone palely like the t_g.
piring lamp of Themis, reclined a fat
little old gentleman, who might have
sat for an old-fashioned historical
picture of "KingDarius on his throne."
This was the judge.
Before I had git over the f-elmgcf
awe which swooped down on ine as 1
entered the court, our leading counsel
—we had engaged a couple of cracks—
began to state our caw. I remember
little of what he said, save that
he showed lamentable ignorance of the
matter. 11 was a big old man, with a
port-wine flush on his face ; and he
could certainly talk nousensc iu a more
imposing tone than I have ever heard
in niiyiioily i.-lr.r- It is not to be
wondered at that he was ignorant of
local agricultural customs, than which
nothing can be more obscure. But he
made his ignorance, into a posi
tive virtue by the way in which ho hid
it. When he came to something^ he
did not quite "twig," hn would swirl
his robe around him, raise his voice to
a roar, and actually foam at ihe mouth.
Hn was the only man I ever saw with
foam at. command. I could sec. he was
completely puzzled hy the word "bolt
ings," which he kept stumbling on in
his hWef. "This s raw, g ntleuien of
the jury, you will he told, was made
into boltings. These boltings, gen
tlemen,"—here a twist of hisgown, an
impressive voice, and an uplifted fore-
tingfif,—'were, as you will hear, manufactured from the very straw which
the plaintiff ill tell you he sold to the
ilef. ndunt. Boltings, gentlemen ofthe
jury, you will be told by a gen lemau
who has passed many nur, in the pur
suit of agrinnlture"—as if it was a sort
of hunt —"I hope, with more success
generally than he has so far met with
in his dealings r ith defendant,—you
will be told, I say, gentlemen, by one
who is better qualified to inform you on
the subject than I am, all that you can
possibly wish to know as to the nature
and composition of boltings. I will
only no* say that they are an agri
cultural product of consiileranle
consumption in the district from
which this ease has been sent,
gentlemen of the jury,   for  your   im
far'ial, and, ahem! able consideration.
t is for you to see, gentlemen, that the
defendant    does   not   holt   *ith   my
client's boltings"   (laughter)—and   so
on.    Whether    he   thought   boltings
were bricks, or cream cheeses, or what,
I can't say; but  he  teemed   perfectly
satisfied witb himself, and to think that
he had   thrown   some   light   on  the
matter.    This was art, no doubt,   and
without this we should all have   been
done for.    When he had finished  and
wiped     his      mouth,      my     bailiff
was  put  in   the   box,   and   he gave
a very clear account of the transaction,
proving amongst other things that he
had sold the straw and weighed it  according io custom.and   had afterwards
helped liunsby'.*. men to put it into his
barn, where it still remained.      While
he was   being examined,   I  passed   a
little note toour counsel No. 2, saying
that, as this man   had been  with   me
twelve or fourteen   years, and   I   had
always placed the  greatest confidence
in him, he had better ask how long  he
had been with me, and whether I trusted him or not.    Counsel No. 2 nodded
blandly, but asked no quettio" ***  ""•
sort.    He afterwards told mi
thing of that son outs both wt Th
jury  would   have   thought i i
longer he had lieen with you,
likely he wat to lie for you.

There was very little to be got out of
me. I aaid 1 was in bed when the
bailiff came to say that be bad sold the
straw, and tbat 1 had left the whole
affair to him. But I said that I could
not quite see why we should have put
the straw into, tbe baru unless it bad
been sold. Bunsby had brought his
solicitor all tbe may io London with
bim. He was a thin little chap -ith
white hair, and he kept jumping up,

notes to his counsel (a bullying Irishman with a tremendous brogue), till
the judge told bim to keep quiet. My

great disgust, was nut put into the boa
at all. Poor feUuwl be began to think

counsel's turn, and he called us all
' si ory-teller.' point-blank. r\s the
straw was sold I a perfectly fair price,
tic waa rather puttied to e.pUiri
m.tier», and I will do bio, tbe justice
of saying that he did not exercise bis
ing nuity in tiling. He allowed that
Buntby «aa oint ausiou- to buy the
t.ra-v, but when I woul I not sell it be
went a*ay from home, and on his return found i. iu his barn. Bunsby
never lutliurised anybody to put ii
there. In (act llunsbv had no bailiff,
snd th • b-ilili' had nn authority, Ac.
4c. I ben Bunsby got into the box.
Buii-h-', I had heard, was I queer
customer. He had once been i in -
sort of prizebght-r, and was a rough
enough fellow n.,w io look at. He
was a great big fat stron. m.i., witn
an enormous nose, whicn had been
knockel on one side in a pugilistic en
counter, and indee must always have
been a tempting mark for the foe to
aim at. Dun-In swaggered into the
linx, an i kissed the book with - loud
Kinack, as who -hnul'l *,,, "Listen,
gentlemen, to the truthful liunsby."
He swore ne never bought the straw,
never told his bailiff to buy ihe sr.w,
never had a bailiff. Never gave Jones,
bi- man, -nv authority to do a ytniug
for him. Bu -by swore a little ton
hard. He looked as if he wouhl have
sworn lo inn rliing or at aiitboly.
After some trouble, however, our man
got him to oivn tbat he had sometiuni
allowed Jones io put nonre marks—lie
could nol write—down in a book fm
hiiu .bout bagsiif wii at, _.c. Then
w iske.l for ihe book. They bad not
go' it. Was it a fact, asked our
co ,nsel, that Jones nad entered the
nu.iilii'i of the mysterious "bulling."
in ihat book I Bunsby shuffled and
shuffled, but could uot quite say "nu" ;
iu fact we knew ii to be the ca-e. He
s-w, howe,er, ibat this wa- a critical
point, so here Bunsby made his coup.
Taking up the Testament a.ain, and
giving it a smack thai sounded ail ot-i
the court like the smack of a carter's
whip, "Gentlemen of the jury," said
he, "do,yon thin, I've come into tuia
here little box"—a very lit'.Ie box
indeed ' it was for the over.rown
Bunsby—"andttken this here iittle
hook in my hand, and kis-e-l this here
little bonk"—here another smack—
"ami then that I am going to tell a lie.'
1 looked at the jury, am I tu my greai
joy saw two or tnree of them wigger,
an.l one w-nt so far as to poke his
ellrow into his neii'ibours ribs. U'lien
Bunsby was done with, Junes tin
bailiff came up, and swore he nu no
Im I iff. and ni'i.r bought an. s rnw.aml
did nol know why be put ii in t'i"
barn. Then, to my disgust, the iinl.
judge said he didn't think .here »a-
aiiything lo go to the jury. However,
our counsel ha I a good talk lo lilin.ttii.:
at last it was agr-ed that vnsh uld call

A jj.miew*n who arrived in this
city yesterday from Victoria lays:—
"John Robaon haa resigned bi* place
iu tbe Local House, aod hope* to air

i* true, the majority will enjoy the
pleasure ot teeing the political close of
thii charlatan'* career. He ia the evil

The people of thr Royal Oily are
dissatisfied with the slow approach of
the iron horse, and we cannot see why
uiy lord Van Home sliould deem it
necessary to delay the execution of tho
work ; but his will is law because the
Aoyal Oity barristers "failed to find
words sufficiently useful to hind bim to
the conditions ofa contract." We regret to see the Royal City railroad unfinished because tne delay is a Ions to
Port Moody. The natural law declares
that each of these cities is dependent
on the other.
The dead body of* man was found
in the Kraaer river at New Wmtuiiu-
ster last Sunday morning. It is supposed to be the body of Patrick Murray
a good natured man who was fond of
whiskey. Rumor says he took a glass
too much and walked into the river
when he did not know where be was
going. That is public opinion. There
was a coroners inquest on Monday ; the
body was not identified, the post
mortem examination was made in a
hasty manner ; tbe clothes or the boots
werejnot removed; but the jury de-
olared tliat Patrick Murray's death
was caused by accidental drown
ing. Is Patrick Murray dead.' We
could jiet venture to aay he is, but we
are certain that a dose of had whiskey
is a bad thing to take when a mau is
preparing to walk out in the dark by a
deep river. The coroners inquest in
this case was—a sham.
Circumstantial evidence points clearly
to a coming event whioh is v ry important to tbi* Province, to the great loue
land, and to tbe Syndicate. The railroad owners sen that it will uot do to
depend on tha products of Asia for the
carrying trade, and are resolved to
secure a population. In order to compete successfully with the United
States for the surplus, populations of
Europe the Syndicate has resolved to
give free grants of land, and free tickets
by rail to emigrant*, who wish to settle
along the   borders of tbe   great   road.
That is a wise policy, and the result
will be a great increase to tbe value of
land now in possession of the old
pioneers. The. poor people, who cannot
choose, will find bappy hotnas in tlie
frosen north; but crowds of independent
men will dome early next spring to
Iind homes all round this great ocean
port, and by the banks of tlie Fraser.
As far as north as Fort George

The Victoria newspaper critics
sneer at Mayor Fell because he sleeps
while the local orators split tbe eat* of

such circumstances would be a sure

oetve the diSerunc- between common

system of doing justice. Thefear uf dying
is far worse than death ; and thi* man

therefore be is entitled to consideration. Tbe statements made ou oath
•by witnesses after the trial have created
the shadow of a doubt iu his uase. But

is no doubt ; and Obariey Suey tlie

The flcpubligue Francaise urges the
French Government tu take advantage

Of the position in Bulgaria the Times
says:—"It is not necessary to point ont

The war did not abolish slavery in
the Great Republic. Syndicates and
eorporations are slave masters. Here
la tne copy of a ukase issued last week
by Silas Griffith, a manufacturer of
charcoal in Dan by, Vt.—''My attention lias lieen called to the fait that
thefts bave been committed on my
works by Jew peddlers; now I hereby
forbid any prison in my employ to
trade with any class of peddlers ; and
should the families of those in my employ trade with such peddlers nil such
families will be charged dii for the use
of bouse. Those not satisfied with
Ihis decree will oome at once to my
office, receive their wages, and quit
work." Tlte Jew peddlers sold goods
to the slaves at half the price thoy
should pay in the store of Silas, .and
therefore the slave owner is in a rage.
The slavery inflicted on the negroes
by white masters in thr South was
glorious liberty when it is compared
with the slavery that such dogs as Silas
inflict on white men!
Amelia Jackson, daughter of
the soldier Jackson, who shot and

know how to reward the daughters of
heroic men.
The Springfield Republican says:—
'• Harriet and Virginia Washington of
Berryville, Clark Co., Va., are the
nearest surviving relatives of George
Washington. They are middle aged
high minded ladies, who enjoy the
respect of the community in which
they live ; but they are in want, and in
delicate health." When Washington
missed the opportunity of making himaelf a king be blundered. He was a
great man and would have been a great
king. The nobles would not permit
hia relative* tostarve; but the people -
Oh. the darling people! we know how
they rewarded their friend Socrates,
aod we are not surprised to hear that
they forget the poor relatives of George
Washington.    ^^^^|f^^
People who an: content to draw conclusions from what they see on the surface, are much exercised at the conduct
of Germany and her apparently selfish
policy. They accept the story industriously circulated that Germany can feel
no interest or alarm at the encroach-
ments of Russia. That even il the
Muscovite takes possession of the entire Danube, she would not to any appreciable extent, interfere with German
commerce, because her traffic is now almost entirely controlled by her railway
system, which of late years lias lieen
greatly develo|ied. She sees no danger
from Russia acquiring the <Jon*«anlino-
pie, as the trade of Germany would in
nowise be injured. Of course, the press
of Austria and Hungary is greatly en
raged and alarmed at this tutu of affairs
and strong articles appear from time to
time urging the Austrian Government
to take measures for its Own preservation and resist the encroachments of
Russia. We feel quite suje that the indifference of Germamy is only assumed;
she could no more regard the approach
of Russia to Constantinople as a matter
of no consequence than she could look
upon the approach of P'rance to the
Rhine. The fact is that she wants to
convince France that her hands are perfectly free and she would like to induce
England to bear the brunt of a quarrel
with Russia. If we did not believe that
this assumed indifference was only the
result of an understanding with Austria,
Italy and England, we should say that
Germany might carry her pretended
insouciance a little too Car. England
will never permit the absorption of the
best part of Turkey by Russia, and failing her German ally she could readily
come to an understanding with France.
For a large slice of Syria France would
gladly join England in forcing back the
Russians, England's share of the spoils
being, of course, Constantinople. But
Germany knows this very well and would
certainly not risk such a combination.
It is very hard for people not acquainted
with the ever varying game of diploma-
acy to follow its tortuous course. Almost every day presents a new phase.
A very trifling incident would completely change the whole face of affairs in
Europe so that it would be rash to predict how or when the next great move
will take place. Something, however,
of a serious character is looked for, because while preaching peace and goodwill to all men, the Powers are all actively engaged in preparing for a bloody
war. The movement of a straw indicates the direction of the wind and we
note several such movements in England. *For instance, the Bank of England rate has been advanced suddenly
one per cent. There was no apparent
cause for this and its injudiciousness in
regard to the interests of the bank may
be judged from the fact that a large decrease in its business immediately occurred. The Admiralty have given orders for the immediate completion and
armament of a number of war vessels,
for which, if we accept the pacific assurances of the various Powers, there
is no apparent necessity. We need
hardly say that for both of these occurrences specious excuses are made.
The bank rate is advanced, it is said,
because the withdrawals of gold have
been unusually large, and, by the way,
a very suspicious feature, is the fact
that, bar gold has generally been taken
in preference to tfoin. The commissioning of the war ships is said to be
simply the annual relief or change in
the stations, but there appears lo the
ordinary observer, to be quite enough
of ships in commission already for all
peace requirements. One fact is undoubted, that Russia is massing her
troops in the most favorable positions
for immediate action, no less than three
new army corps are being formed in
Armenia and she has an army in Bcs-
serabia sufficient to oppose any forces
likely to be met with on the way to
Constantinople. Austria appears to be
the only power bestirring herself to present a front to a possible Russian advance, whether she means it or not. She
is constantly increaing her forces in
Bosnia and the Herzegovina. A report, to which the London 7i>«.r gave
credence, was prevalent recently that
Austria intended to annex these two
provinces, buf that was officially denied
in Vienna. I'he report may, nevertheless, be quite true, because in the present ticklish state of European feeling
such action might give rise to questions
not easily answered. The Turks feel
that a great change is impending somewhere and they have a strong suspicion
lhat it will affect them, so they are calling out all the " Rediffs " and recruiting in all directions as fast as they can.
In this, we suspect, they are showing
their prudence, although it may be for
tbe last struggle.

We hear a great deal through the
Grit papers, about the decadence of the
Conservatives, their rapidly wining
popularity, and the almost certain defeat that awaits them at the next election. There may be some truth in this,
but we must always remember that in
politics, the wish is, very often, father
to the thought, and that it is the common practice on both sides, to make
bold unqualified statements without reference to a basis. In the eight or nine
years that the Liberal Conservatives
have been in power, it would be absurd
to supj-ose that they have not suffered
the loss of many whilom adherents, who
have deserted their ranks, because intellectually and socially unfit, they,
nevertheless, believed themselves entitled to a position in the Cabinet; they
expected jndgeships or Lieut.-Governorships ; they wished to have a situation
in the Customs, a senatorship; they had
promising relatives who were worthless
in any position but that of a pensioner
of the country; they had some pet
scheme which the Government would
not finance for them and out of which
they expected to profit largely. There
are always a number who have waited
lor some employment under Government and failing to find any, hope, by a
houleversemtnt to obtain what they desire.
Many ambitious men of small minds and
no distinct political leaning, take up
any cry that they think will be effective
quite regardless of any principle, patriotism or propriety, hoping that with a
new Government they will succeed better than with the one in power. The
above-named classes always exist and
they increaae in numbers with the years
during which any party remains in
office. Having achieved their object
in changing (he Government, they, i>er-
form the same discreditable tactics,
towards the men they have assisted into
office, if their objects are not attained.
It is with the aid of such material that
the Grits hope to wrest the reins of
Government from the Macdonald ministry, but these calculations would be at
fault if the Conservatives had not invoked the aid of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, which is likely to
do more in the way of removing them
from office, than any other cause. The
Conservative party had two great supports to their government, the National
Policy, and the Canadian Pacific Railway ; the first, because it enlisted the
support of the manufacturers and their
employees; the second, because, the
achievement of the great undertaking,
in which the Grits signally failed,
created a sort of national pride with
which the Conservatives were closely associated. The first has lost some of its
early attraction by the increased duties
necessitated by the second, and the latter has been falling in public favor, notwithstanding the almost universal laudations of the press, owing to the reckless
carelessness and greed of the C. P. R.
Syndicate. Instead of making a firstclass road, which they had the means to
do, owing to the liberality and accommodating spirit of the Government,
backed by a large majority in the
House, they even excelled the Americans in their choice of a hazardous
route through the Rocky Mountains and
over the Selkirk.. They have attempted
to secure a fictitious reputation by the
haphazard driving of tea-trains and the
apjiearancc of carrying off freight from
the American lines. They have made
miserable attempts to copy the American
system of making new towns and termini, which is now completely played
out in the United States, and have rendered themselves detected and ridiculous by their abortive attempt to make
money out of Coal Harbor and English
Bay. In order to effect this, they want
to abandon a beautiful harbor and
town-site, temporarily perhaps, which
would be equivalent to fraud, for a so-
called terminus, without a harbor, which
involves the Company in a great expenditure to construct fourteen or fifteen
miles of useless line and the subsequent
burden of maintenance and wear and
tear of rolling stock, so that a few men
may become rich at the country's expense. They run their trains to Port
Moody, the terminus created by law,
and they have not a station-house, a
round-house, or indeed anything necessary for even a temporary station, lest
people should be deterred from buying
their lots at English Bay, from fear that
the line would not be extended to that
place. Their meaness in reducing the
wages of their skilled employees, has
caused these latter, in large numbers, to
leave their service, and, if accidents on
the line increase, no one can be surprised. This compound of charlatanism, landgrabbing and parsimony, is
making a deep impression upon the
country, and, unfortunately for the Conservative Government, it is rapidly effac
ing the popularity and prestige of the
Conservatives. Had the Canadian Pa
clfic Syndicate been composed of high
manned  liberal men. thev would have

been a tower of strength to the Conservatives, and would have secured for
them, a long lease of power. But their
•noun, vulgar huckstering, has made
them a mill-stone round the Conservative
neck, and will sink the party tu Addition. Nothing can save the Conservatives but shaking off this worthless load
and carrying out the solemn engagement of the Government at Port Moody
and elsewhere. Great corruption exists
in other countries, but nothing so contemptibly, glaring as that connected
with this railway. Sir John Macdonald,
the Premier, at a great banquet, boasted
about " Vancouver," then an unpeopled
wilderness ; and Lord Lansdowne, the
Governor-General, told the people of
Port Moody, that the Company—he
learned from the Minister of Railways
—contemplated extending the line 1
The Minister of Railways should have
known—if he did not—that a continuation of the line would be illegal, and at
the same time, a breach of governmental
faith which would be a lasting disgrace
to the Canadian people.

Biamarck, through hia organ, tbe North

quiescence in tbe recent extraordinary pro.
ceedings at Sophia, which, whatever may b*
their nominal outcome, contemplate no practical reault but th* absolute ascendency of
th* Car over Bulgtria. From thia vi*w
Austria hu at Ust plucked up courage to
dissent, and hu virtually called upon tbe
Gorman empire to choose between her friend
ship snd Russia's. Such it plainly tbo conclusion to be drawn if we can accept u authentic the announcements, first, that Hun-
gary, through ita Premier, hu notified the
Foreign Office of tbe dual monarchy thst it
cannot tolerate a Russian occupation of
Bulgaria, and, aecondly, tbat the head of
ths Hapsburg Government haa conveyed *

Should this sharp divergence of Austria
from the accommodating attitude hitherto
maintained by Bismarck in th* Bulgarian
affair lead to war upon tbe Danube, tbsre
may still be aome extravagant admirers of
the German Chancellor wbo will iaaiat tbat
ht has from tbo atari had tb* provision of
precisely this reault, and that be hu simply
been playing a dup gam* in order to enlist
the public opinion of Europe oa hit tide.
On* of tb* but-informed and most aent* of

and thinks he sees an analogue in Btaoiarck'a
•nigmatic treatment of tbe SchUawig-
Hubtein problem in tbe year* jut preceding it* definite solution tt Sadow*. Wo
can discover no tuch parallel. At no stage
in the prolonged quarrel between Pruasit
and Austria over the disposition of the Elbe
duchies did the former power take a atop
indubitably counter to the end she finally
attained. This cannot be eaid of Itiam.rck'i
treatment of Prince Alexander after tho
latter't return to Bulgaria aad enthuaUatic
reception by his subjects
Not only did tho German Chancellor fail to
offer assurances that tho principle of mon
archial inviolability, the binding force of
tho Berlin treaty, and the political interest
of his A'uetiian illy in the Eut should be
vindicated in the perton of the outraged
Prince, bnt th* latter't second snd voluntary departure from Sophia wu made necessary by Bismarck's refusal to permit the
punishment of the abductors. The attempt
uf tha North German Gimettt to palliate tne
hostile significance of the admonition from
Berlin on tbit subject it a mere quibble.
The terms of tho warning, u published by
tbat journal, embody u distinct and emphatic a threat u diplomatic euphemista
over permit themselves to make. From the
moment that Prince Alexander wu denied
the right to inflict condign punishment upon
hia kidnappers, hii throne was untenable
and even hia lite wu in grave peril. If it
be true that the singularly craven letter addressed by the restored Prince to the Csar
was also suggested from Berlin, Bismarck
must be accused of trying to disgrace snd
ruin in European opinion the man he had determined to desert.
If BUmarck ha* all along intended to
cheat Russia of ButgarU, even at the cost of
war, hia action toward Prince Alexander
cannot be otherwise interpreted than u an
egregious blunder. He had takon exactly
the right course to perplex and weaken the
Austrian party in the Balkan region, and to
immensely embolden the friends of Russia.
Even should the Bulgarian National At-
lembly reelect the Battonberg Prince, it will
not Im with audi imposing unanimity u
would have been beheld had the men guilty
of high treason been subjected to due
penalties. Then, should the Prince accept
the Assembly'! invitation, he would find a
troublesome pro-Rotaian minority in that
body, aod disaffection in the army made
rampant hy impunity. It it, indeed, by no
means certain that thit minority will not
overawe and govern tbe Assembly; but in
the best event Bismarck's attitude has
made the situation in Bulgaria incomparably
better for Russia and worse for hit reputed
Austrian ally. Nothing, again, would be to
certain to arrett the predilections for Hups
burg protection which have been ao tedu-
lousiy cultivated at Bucharest and Belgrade
as the apprehension that King Charlea
or King Milan might, like Prince Alexander, be prohibited by Biamarck from punishing assailants of a monarch's life or
It needa, in our opinion, a good deal of
naivete as well us ingenuity to elicit pr.-of of
profound machination from Bismarck's
share in the Bulgarian buaineu. He hiibielf
laughs at those who impute to him great
subtlety, and here, at sll events, his motives
seem to lie upou the surface. We hav* no
doubt that be told the truth when be uld
that for hia part he would rather throw
over a dozen Bulgaria! tban jeopard the
Czar't friendship. He feeU ao now, because
lie knows that the reorganization of tbe
French army haa advanced rapidly, while
the Austrian army is in a relatively backward and feeble state. He bu feared, ac
cordingly, that iu tho event of a general embroilment he would not be able to oppose
the whole force of Germany to France, but
would have to divert a part of it to eastern
operations. But hs ought to have foreseen
that the Magyars would never submit without a fight to the acquirement of Bulgaria,
and the consequent absorption of Roumania,
by Rusaia, which would thereafter hold
Hungary in a viae. The Magyar-, when
they are determine,!, ean away tiie action of
tha Vienna Government, and Auttria, once
committed to war against Muscovite ag

had an futestinal disturbance which alarmed
the Vatican. But it was an unforeseen
"The Pope had suffered for more than two
yeara from intettinul inflammation, and the
must eminent physicians were consulted in
vain. It was only possible to obtain momentary alleviation. Principally from innate
economy, and, secondly, by medical pre-
•cription. tho Pqpo eats very tparely. His
special cook goes out to make purchase!
with a very mode et basket. He generally
ootikt for dinner half a fowl, of which the
Pope eat* the breatt; a couple of gliissea of
Perugian wine, certainly no Bordeaux;
Homotiincs a light soup, rarely roast meal, a
little boiled vegetable, and sometimes a fish
—that it the dinner j no sweets, nn paltry,
and no expensive game. Witb tuch *
regime it will be nnderstood that the Pope't
disorder it not the retult of luxurious meal*
such as those of the Pope Gangnnelli.
"The other evening the Pope had gone to
bed earlier than usual, after having drunk
some warm beverage. He wai rather
fatigued and in pain. The doctor had visited
him during the afternoon. At about I2_
o'clock at night the Cardinals in the antechamber and the valet who wus watching
were aroused by a loud ringing of the hell.
Thay ran, and found the Pope suffering
from excruciating paint. The doctor was
immediately ne.it for, and in a moment the
whole Vatican wat aroused. The severe
pains lasted till 5 a.m., nt which time the
Pono fell asleep for a th.u't time ; but at 6
o'clock he determined to get up at all eott*.
For tbe next two day* he received no one

The French Dominies n monks at Jerusalem
have made tome remarkable excavations un
tome land which they have lately acquired,
about a furlong aud a half outside tne gat,-
uf Damascus. Six metre* below the present
level of the ground ths workmen oame on
souis arches of contidsraibls extent, the wullt
of whioh hid been very carefully built. At
a short distance they found the basement of
a chapel, before the entrance of which there
wis a tombstone covered with * long inscription, whioh, however, wss ttoleu before
anyone thought of oopyiug the inscription.
About the middle of their property they
found a large well preserved mosaic, aud
upm the tptce alt around being cleared tbe
luiet and other remains of great "pillars were
discovered.    This is supposed to lie the site
f the great basilica built in the fifth pen
tury in honor of St. Stephen by Eudoxu,
the wife of Arcadia*, the first of the long
line of Eastern Emperors. A atili more remarkable discovery waa made while digging
the trench for the foundations of tbt boundary wall, which the Dominicans wished lo
build ; the ground gave way, and oue of the
workmen disappetred. On clesring out the
place they came upon a large and beautiful
nail which had been cut out of the rook ;
where the rock failed the gap was filled by
admirable masonry. From two of thu sides
two large doorway* led into two vaulted
tombs, all of equal size. On each aide uf the
vault there wa* a restiug place for one
coffin, and ttthe end oppotite the entrance
placet for two. At the furthest end ofthe
great hall t passage led to another excavated
vault, in which ttood three great covered
sarcophagi. It is suggested that the ear-
cophage contains the remains of Helena,
Queen of Abiadenoa, and her aous. The
quantity of lionet found in theae chambers
was very greet. In theaniddlo of the great
hall in a hollow specially prepared, a sort of
lung metal box waa found. It was adorned
with representations of children holding

could furnith a clue   to the period or the

There is no little consolation in the
thought that, however the impostor may
flourish for the aeaaon, be cannot long continue to delude mankind. How many men
contrive to acquire a brief and finally reputation, sud then link into disrepute aod
oblivion I We confess that years ago, when
we first heard of the universal celebrity of
Holloway, we distrusted his lofty daunt,
and arrogated to ourselves a superiority of
discernment which would not allow him to
entrap our judgment. Mott heartily do we
beg his pardon for the unjust imputation.
A earefull study of hia system convinced us
that we were indeed mistaken, and thtt the
world, to do him justice, should immediately
as it undoubtedly will hereafter, rank him
foremost amongst its benefactor*.
The human blood it not a mer*
courting through, the veins and arteries,
aud partaking of the more qualities of other
fluids. It it—startling ns the statement mny
appear—ALIVE. It ia, in plain words,
"We Ij/eo/nian." All phytiologicsl diseases
tuch a* indigestion, deranged kidneys, liver,
heart, lungs, stomach, all impure secretions
in tbe body, and a large majority of epidemic
ana endemic tilsesses have their origin, or at
leaet their exciting cause, in the. impure
state of the blood. Cleanse that and keep
it cleansed, nnd no sickness enn prnltr.ite, or
even assail the system. This splendid discovery has given a lustre to Hollowat'b
name. We do- not wonder at the great fame
he has acquired ill Europe, Asia, Africa, and
Australia.— nretterii Timet.
