Wi- know that at this place, all
along thn ocean shore, the surf most
ho leaping fifty fe.t high on the rocks
as they were struck by the great, resounding waves. The channel by the
lighthouse was narrow, and the pa-sage
ilirougli it demanded fair weather tud
a good pilot. Meantime, ihe Ine
shipped three seas in quick succession,
during a dead but brief lull ; but now
the gale piping again brought her head
up to the wind. As ihe rose and sunk
P.i-iieuili us witb the mountain swells,
we could imagine the ocean bottom
within a foot of her keel, and held our
breath for the expected shock,
dipt. Moore was a man of decision.
'There is but one way,' he shouied,
tlirougli the storm. "We shall be lost
is we are. 1 * ill try It! Lay up aod
oosii the fore-topsail !"
I was myself in the fore Bhrouds in
i mo iient, going up as nimbly as the
vind would permit, and was followed
liy another of the crew, while the rest
stood by the topsail sheets. The sail
wus sheeted home by the time I got
;iack to the deck. It had been double-
reefed the evening previous, and was
thus; more easily managed.
'Now stand by the braces !" sang
out the captain. "Put your helm
liard up ! Round in on the weather
main brae ! So I—yell, your main-
brace I Haul away on your head-
braces I Well, well, your fore-brace I
—belav all ! So, so !—steady your

All this was not done as smoothly
as it can be written; for, in falling off
t'rom tha wind, the brig was handled
by old Neptune without gloves. She

■iliorl time revived. Deeply laden
*- she was, how the brig wallnwed on
her course,—the darkness inky black,
he sea breaking and teaming, and the
howling wind doing its best to tear her
j topsails from tbe Mi,r<ip"Mb_, . . .,
But again rnc tnickly driving mist
dint out the light like a blanket, and
*e were rushing toward the rock bound
coast with no guide but the compass.
I'he danger appeared frightful, but it
could not be avoided.
"Northeast by north, half north 1"
aid the captain to old Jack, making
llowance for tho difference between
the position of the light when last seen
ind the centre of the bay-entrance,—
"keep her exactly on thnt point."
No one else spoke.
Surging and combing and swinging
came the seas, looking as if they
would tumble over thn taffrail. And
now, once iuor>* the lightning from a
huge rol ing cloud in the southwest
glared along the ocean, succeeded by a
''urst of^iunder that sounded like the
shock of a battery. In the single instant of brilliant light, wo saw the
foam wrapped shore close off our port
how, the lighthouse upon our starboard, and tha boiling, narrow chponel
directly at the end of our bowsprit?
such a thrill of jy as went to our
iieaits ! Darkness a_.nin shut down,
bnt t're ray from the lighthouse was
now faintly visible through the dense
spray, nnd we were faRt getting abreast
of it.
In a few minutes more tho water
began to lose its mountainous roughness, and we were evidently under the
lee of the land and going up the channel.
At the same time, the wind fell very
fust, or, at least, appeared to do so.
But in reality, the storm was dying
out, as will on tho ocean as where we
were. The effect of contrast is great,
and although the waves in the bay
were undoubtedly running far higher
than T had ever before known them to
do, and were, in fact, large and heavy,
to ine the surface of the water no w
sei-inid nearly smooth. The brig must
still have rolled consider* ly,
did not notice that she did so.

The order was obeyed; and soon
after there appeared a faint «Jt am of
daybreak among the thick, black
clouds The wind was now almost en
tirely gone, and we were a number of
miles up the b >y.
'•Where i. Mr. Miller!" asked Capt
Moore. "Clear up the topsails, men.
Mr. Miller !    Mr. Miller I"
But there was no answer.
"Where is the mate, men''" again in

blowing a hurricane, so that it was im

longboat and jolly*, oat wore both gone,
the latter having b« en swept from the
stern davits, as tb,e former wu from
the deck ; thereto re, after the wind
died out, we waited until a boat came
down to us from the harbor above.
When she caino alo ngside, our captain
and second mate we re in the cabin, and

Suddenly the apparition of Mr.'
Miller came down the forecastle ladder!
All who were awake- darted and stared.
The spirit proceeded to Dick's berth,
and placed its hand on tbe stilor's
matted head. Dick roused himself
with an ill-natured yawn, opened his
eyes lazily, and would bare spoken,
when all at once his .gate became fixed
his face turned ghitstly pale, aud he
threw himself barf, as far as the
dimensions of his narrow den would
let him. He was alo lost frightened to

Miller, seising bim bj'the throat, "you

more dangerous than a thousand
ghosts ! Come out here, you scoundrel, and let's see how you look 1"
And in a moment tl ie short, stumpy
tar was dragged from his berth.
All was soon explained. Taking advantage ofthe darkmess, after we entered the passage of the bay, and while
Mr. Miller was forward attending to
the anchors, Dick b ad tripped the
officer's heels and pushi *d him out over

had been carried away. Half strangled by tbe sudden plunge, tha mate

his trial, at the conclusion of which he
was sentenced to a long imprisonment,
took place soon after.
My mother was overjoyed at my re
turn. Knowing that we mint be close
on the coast, she had passed the night
of that fearful gale in sleepless agony,
without once going to bed. In the
morning, she had learned tbat a brig,
supposed to be the Inca, was at anchor
down the bay, with the topgallant
masts gone ; and the whole of that day
and the next night were passed in a
suspense which those will understand
who have had loved ones on the deep.
It seemed as if she could not express
her feelings when I was once more in
the house. Even the newspaper,
whicli reported the arrival of the "brig
Inca, twenty two days from Havana,"
was a paper to lie laid aside as s something sacred. She told mu who had
been to the house, and what t hey had said;
who had died; and what boys and
girls had inquired about me. And her
new interest in vessels was betrayed
by the fact of her informing tne, iust
when the brig Chapman had sailed,
and thu Columbia and the'Exchange ;
when the Vermont had arrived, and
the Albertina, was last reported. Yet
through it all, there was a pensive vein
as if her joy was insecure; as if there
were other partings to come.
Next day the Inca got up the river.
I had co oranges or pineapples for my
boy acquaintances, and therefore could
not treat tbem as I had hoped to do ;
but I did the next best thing: I showed

all about the pirate that had chased us
oflCuba, and the big ship that had
crossed our bows in the snowstorm.

aloft was remembered, and all the incidents of the rescue ; nor did the "gray-
back" on the coast lose anything in my

The "long, long Indian day" is
quickly falling. The retreating .un is
darting Parthian shafts over the dusty
maiden ; and the life and movement of
the c-antouoient, which have been
damned up during the scorching hour*
are again astir. Punkahs have been
stopped, and windows have been
opened to admit the cool evening air.
Smart soldiers, in spotless white utn
form, are strolling from their barracks
in search of fresh air, or perchance
beer at the friendly canteen of a neigh
boring corps. Lawn tennis is in full
swing in the club compound. The
liana hu begun to play at the station
band stand, end the Resident's
barouche and the more modest "con-
vaininces" of humbler Anglo-Indian
life arc trundling dustily forth with
pale-faced ladies, who are going to listen
to its strains and enjoy the evening
I had only lately arrived in India, in
command uf a draft, and had not
previously done duty with the regiment
in its Eastern quarters, having been
for some years on the staff, though I
had had, iu earlier days of my soldiering, some experience of the country. I
had paid most of the regulation visits,
and felt that I might face the local
society, without my conscience reproaching me witb any social laches ; so
as there was no counter attraction, I
thought I might as well spend the time
before mess by following the carriages
to the band stand as in any other way.
As 1 sallied from my bungalow, in
the coolest and lightest of garments,
not unpardonably conscious that the
said garments were fresh from the
hands of a London artist, and therefore considerably superior tb the kits of
most of my brother officers, who had
been obliged to supplement the ravages
of the Indian climate and the Indian
moth by the efforts of their dirteet, I
hailed a brother captain, who was
strolling aimlessly forth, and secured
him as company, and to tell me who
was who in the station fashionable
circles. He was a good fellow, a
peer's younger son, who, having passed
a meteoric and somewhat expensive
career in tho Guards, had exchanged
to a line regiment, and was expiating
his London misdeeds by a few years in
an Indian purgatory. He was a stand
I ing difficulty, whenever he dined, or
} whateve;' eut-»rt*mmfipt, he nssHtted m'
as the Indian table oT precedence became hopelessly confused over the
honorable prefix to his name ; and
whether he should be told off to a
loading lady, or take charge of an undeveloped spinster, or even make one
of the unattached crowd of single men
who bring up the rear of every Indian
procession to the dinner table, was always a puzzling problem to be solved.
Among his brother officers his accidents
of birth did not confer any additional
dignity, and he usually answered to
tbe name of "Button."
There was little variety in the gather
ing that met our eyes at the bandstand from similar assemblages thst I
remembered in days "lang syne." There
was the Resident's carriage, drawn by
two goodiiih-lookiiig Walers, with a
fat Madrassee coachman in scarlet on
the box, with his bare brown feet
stuck 3ut in front of him. The two
scariet-clad horse-keepers stood at the
horses' heads, each armed with a
"ehowrie," with which they lazily
switched tbe flics which buzzed round
tbeir charges. Lady Winkle, the wife
of Sir Rodolph Winkle, K.O.S.I., the
Resident, sat quite the "Burra Mem
Sahib," in a dijrnified attitude inside,
conscious of the "eclat" conferred by
the escort of tbe two native "sowars,"
who were formed up near, slouching in
their ill-cleaned saddles, and still more
conscious of thn presence of the quiet-
looking, grizzled old gentleman beside
her, who was a member of the Viceroy's
Council on an official tour, and whom
sbe hardly knew whether to treat as an
equal in the Indian hierarchy, or to
conciliate as one whose opinion might
or might not be (.avorable to ber hus-
band's prospects. There was tbe
Colonel's phaeton, with two well bred
cobs, and with harness that showed a
little more careful fitting and cleaning
than mere native supervision could
bave given. T carts, pony-carriages,
waggonettes, drawn by every variety of
animal, Arabs, Waler», Burmans, and
filled with the wivos and families of
the various secretaries, doctors, paymasters -co., who made up our European Btation society. Then came tho
natives, in almost equal virieties. The
fat Parsee, who kept the universal
store for the cantonment, with his
olive-colored wife and sirarm of black
eyed tawny children, with gold-embroidered caps surmounting their sharp,
bright-looking faces, filled to overflowing the old victoria, which had been
taken as part payment of a bill left by
an ex official, whose liver had finally
succumbed, and who had been invalided
home laat year. "Tongas, jutkas," and
bullock-coache* were thei-e in every
stage of decrepitude, drawn by
"tattoos" and bullocks, whose very
existence thould have, ia moat instances, provoked the interference of
the Society for Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals. And to these the usual
crowd of Europeans and natives on
foot, witb "ayahs" and babies-innumer
able, of all colors, white, brown, and
black, some in perambulators, and some
playing embarrassingly among the legs
of the crowd,   and   we have the sc
which presented   itself.
I had written mv name in tbo
Residency visitors' book, as in duty
Ixrund, and thought that this was a
good opportunity to make the personal
acquaintance of the great lady herself.
"Uutton," 1 aaid, ' you know all the
swell*, introduc* me to Mother Winkle '
Thus disrespectfully, I regret, did the
officers of H.M.'s regiment in garrison
designate that noble person. Alas !
poor worm that I was, how soon was I
to be taught the real humility of my
position '. After we had made our
way through the small crowd who were
doing homage to the great lady, and
Button, irtth his best bow, harfemH
"Allow me to introduce Captain Mel-
ville." I was treated lo the mott disdainful of inclinations—one which
marked my exact position in society —
and while I retired to meditate on my
littleness, her ladyship turned to renew
ber conversation with a more impor
tant person. But my moment of compensation was at band. The member of
Council sudJenly turned round snd
said, "Did 1 hesr the name of C.plain
Melville of the—tb I" I modestly replied "Yes," snd he went on, "I bave
juit come out from England, and saw
the Prince before starting, and be told
ineto be sure to make your acquaintance, if possible, and to site bis re
membrances to bis old friends."
I tried to look unconscious of tbe
change that came over Lidy Winkle's
face aa she overhead thit short colloquy
She turned, and positively beamed on
me, saying— ^^^^^^^_
"I bid heard that you bad arrived at
thn station. Captain Melville, and have
been so anxious to imke your acquaintance; Sir Rodolph and ' will be so
ileluhted if you can arrange to come
and dine with us some night soon.
Good gracioui ! what's that!"
That waa the arrival on the scene of
a dogcart with a tandem of ponies,
driven by one of our subalterns, accompanied by another, which, sfter
wending a devious course from
barracks, had finally pulled up with
the leader's fore legs in the Ptrsee's
victoria, and tbe wheeler, with its ears
back, allowing every disposition to
kick. By tbe exertions of the "tyces,"
however, and a liberal ute of explanatory language from the ambitious
driver, the complicated knot was un
tied,   and order   restored.   Tbe  boys
which hid collected io watch their approach. Amona the rin< of natives
who bad gathered ioun-i, my attention
was much attracted by the appearance
of a striking-looking old man, with
fiercely twisted-op moustache, and
long grey beard wbo had pushed to
tbe front, and teemed to take a marked
interest in the scene. He looked like
an old soldier, and bis high features,
tall stature, aod muscular development
•poke nf a diffeient race from tbe
peaceful-looking native* of tbe south by
whom he was surrounded. I could not
se* that he carried any arms; but
though he did not have quite tha uniform uisciplined air wbicb marks tne
native army nowadays, be might have
been a noii-coiuniissioned officer of
irregulars, or rather one of the lemi-
drilled and orgsnited levies o! a native

blackmail ou a citiien must end in
failure—thanks to tbe veteran editor
and proprietor of the Ouarduk. The
citizen was charged with stealing a
piece of gas pipe worth ten cents, and
wa* arrested. Whil* he was in jail
the city salicitor, instructed by the
Council, sent to him the following
message: "If you sell the lot required
by, the city for the railroad for 11,500,
the charge of stealing will be withdrawn." It was an audacious proceeding, and evidence of the ignorance of
men who ought to know something of
the liberty secured by British law for
every British subject.

Last week in London two young
English ladies named Taylor, committed suicide; they had lived for months
ou a pittance they received for making
match boxes. Their poverty placed
them iii an awful position and they
were forced to choose between death
and a life of shamn. The heroic spirit
urged them to choose death; they were
highly educated; one was aged nineteen, the other seventeen. .Suicide is a
mortal sin; but in this case th* sin it a
passport to immortality. This imperial
pair deserved crowns of glory.

The Times in a leader published on
Saturday last, aays -. "We hope Lord
-ddealeigh will tell Mr. Waddington,
the French ambassador, plainly and
firmly, that England will judge for
herself when her task in Egypt is
finished." At_>this present moment
France is fiddling with dangerous
tools. Every monarchy in Europe
wishes the devil would take the Republic, and if France quarrels with
England she will be deserted by Russia
and crippled by Germany. It is cer
tain that John Bull will not listen
patiently lo a hint that he'should leave
Egypt. There he is, snd there he will
stay. The land of the Pharoahs is a
part of the Empire.
Lord Randolph Churchill says:
"The land laws of Ireland were reformed in a hasty and impulsive manner, and must be improved. The pro
cess of change in the ownership of land
must be accelerated if you wish to produce peace. But iu addition to that,
you must, in the nuxt session of Parliament, .-ndeavor to lay the foundation
of a popular Local Government iu Ireland. It is a qnestion which no Gov.
eminent can afford to shirk."

At Los Angeles on Monday three
Chinamen travelled inn train witb
three white laborers who played practical jokes on the celestials, pulled their

the Chinese went to search for their

throw atones; but one of the John*
drew a revolver and declared himself to
be "all the same Milican man" and blazed
away at his assailants. He shot one
dead and wounded another, and then
escaped with bis friends. The authorities at Lou Angeles aay—"it was his
duty to defend himself."

Ottl special telegram of Saturday last
shows clearly what we have nlany time,
asserted in these columns, that an understanding has existed with France for
a long time ; that preparations for war
have been going on continuously for
yearn,  and the time is now thought to
be  propitious for  its commencement.
We believe also,  that a perfect accord
exists    between    England,    Germany,
Austria and It-ly, as to the course oi
action to be adopted  under certain circumstance, and that this fact will become clearer to our readers as time advance*.      The  policy  of France and
Russia has been to draw Germany out,
but so far, the various little tricks of
Russia have not availed.    She pretends
to regard the Kaiserbund as intact, yet
she fears and hates Germany, which is
really the only jiower which can contest
with   her, the domination of Europe.
No one can doubt that  Herr Tista had
his   instructions   when   he  made the
speech to the Hungarian assembly and
the balance touching Austrian sympathy
and German indifference was only jiart
ofthe play.    Herr Tisza's speech was
only  a  round about  way of warning
Russia and she very sensibly accepted
the caution by declaring —a   palpable
falsehood—that she   had   no   designs
upon Bulgaria and did not intend to
occupy that country.    It appears that
Russian war preparations on   an immense scale have been proceeding rapidly in the Black Sea, but whether this is
merely a feint to attract attention from
the real point of attack,  is something
that only time can tell.    It is evident
that France is growing impatient and is
determined to quarrel with somebody.
The great mass of the people is intent
on the Rhine, but De Freycinet seems
anxious to quarrel with England about
Egypt.    Frenchmen firmly believe that
their fleet is more than a match for that
of Great Britain ; in this they may or
may not be mistaken,  but they would
certainly commit a gross ^blunder to
make an enemy of England when they
are probably on the point of engaging
Germany.      But this again   may   be
finesse in the hope of  confining   the
English fleet to British waters while the
Russians make a descent on the Dardanelles.    It will  be found, however,
that England can spare enough ships
to meet the  French fleet if necessary
and guard the Golden  Horn besides.
The story about the Turks allying them-
«s>iv»a with Prance .and Russia we do
not believe ; they might pretend fo ao
so in order to secure certain concessions
from each of these pretended allies ;
but they must know from a long and
terrible experience, that it would be a
case of " Mary's little lamb " making
friends with the butchers. We would
rather be inclined to think that Turkey
is at this moment acting under instructions from .her natural allies and by
such means secure, if not a substantial
reduction of the war indemnity, at least,
an extension of time and so give her the
chance of wiping it out altogether if
Russia is defeated by the allies. She
could with perfect consistency join
France and Russia in asking England
to evacuate Egypt; it would only be
demanding her rights as the Suzerain.
The proximate death of the Emperor
William is not an unlooked for contingency, and although everyone will regret
the departure of the gallant old soldier
king, he has really had very little to do
with the government of the country for a
a long time. We are, therefore, at a loss
to understand the reason for the alleged
exultation on the part of the French.
It is true he was with the German army
in France; but why his death should
afford them cause for glee, is beyond
our comprehension, because the gallant
old monarch did very liftle beyond acting as the figurehead in the conquest
of France. Nevertheless, it may be
supposed to gall the Germans and may
help to bring about th* casus belli for
which the French are eagerly seeking.
The industry of the Russian agents in
Afghanistan has accomplished something in causing this foolish people to
fuse English gold. The truth may be
that one or perhaps two of the tribes
have been induced to commit such a
folly, being well paid by the Russians ;
but that will not Ian long ; they will return to their cake and milk in due
course The C^tr is evidently in a
bloodthirsty humour and has again
killed one of kis attendants—Count
Reuther—this time with a sabre. Of
course, we only see the surface, but under any circumstances it is a terrible
position for the Czar, and shows upon
what a slender thread his existence
hangs. We »re glad to note that the
Irish landlord, and tenants have arrived
at a modus lAvtndi; so that moonlighting will go oat of fashion. There are a
great number of reasons for this ; the
real object <*f the agitation on the part
of ihe fanners has been achieved—a
considerable reduction in their rents.
Next, the prices for their produce has
been advancing recently and their
great market is io England.   The Irish
people generally am beglnni***. to see
that they are committing suicide by
driving away the gentry from the country. I'he stoppage of hunts and the
danger of being shot from behind a
hedge, has caused the expenditure of
large sums ol money in England by
absentee landlords that would otherwise
have made many a poor Irish family
comfortable. Then again it has come
out that the League which exacted so
much, has done very littU: in return ; in
fact, out of the large sums -jf mone/
received from the United State* but a
very small fraction has been bestowed
in the relief of evicted tenants. All
this points to the early dissolution of
the League, which is waning in popularity in America as well as at home.

The people of this Province are waiting with great  impatience -to have an
answer to the question at  the head of
this article.    A certain set of our local
politicians have settled the matter to their
own satisfaction, but, " there's many a
slip 'twixt the cup and the lip" may have
an  illustration  in their case, and we
have every reason to believe  that this
will be the sequel.    It must never be
forgotten  that   wc have  no parties in
this province ; tliat it is a mere scramble
for place and that  the  main point will
be to secure the services ofthe best men
for the four port  folios,  the men who
are   not   only capable   of  filling  the
places,  but who carry  with them the
moral support of public opinion.     It
any attempt is made to foist some of
the incapable humbugs who formed the
last ministry,  upon the public, a very
strong opposition will be formed and an
early dissolution the result.    There is
just   sufficient   new   material   in   the
House to block the  progress of a government formed on the basis of bribery
and corruption.    The idea that certain
small personal interests offered by the
old party, will appease the new comers,
is a mistake; concessions will be accepted to begin with,  but, there being
no great principle at stake, the sure tendency to opposition will ensue, and a
patchwork Government will be ousted.
The state of affairs in  Europe clearly
points to  a great war, and the great
strategic and commercial value of this
Province, will be  duly appreciated and
turned to account; our local Government must be composed of men who
air., able to guide  our destinies to the
goal which om position aeth-t-.ru, «.«r
certainly none of the late ministers, particularly those who dabbled   in   real
estate at the expense of our taxpayers,
can be permitted to hold office.   The
very extraordinary, not to say criminal,
transactions in which the late ministers
were engaged, must be thoroughly in-
ve'tigated, and this they are aware of.
They, unfortunately,  seem to overlook
the fact, that other  people are alive to
the necessity for these enquiries.   Great
efforts have been made by those immediately interested, to cover np   such
transactions as, the Kootenay Bill, the
Settlement  Bill, the Coal Harbor and
English  Bay land gifts and sales, the
Eagle Pass wagon road business and a
host of other very murky measures, that
were enacted by the hired majority of
the late Government.    That  there are
members of the present House who are
ready to perform the same duties for
appreciative   ministers,   we   are quite
aware ; but their actions will be scanned
by men Who would object to such dirty-
work, and who will expose the corruption, in order to save themselves from
being reckoned up  in the same category.    There will be, however, another
reason for better and more honorable
government.   The exigencies of commerce and warfare combined will bring
to our Province a vast number of people from all parts of the world ; money
will be plentiful, improvements will go
on with amazing rapidity and the country will be soon far beyond the manipulation of such men as Smithe, Robson
& Co.    Again, a very superior class of
people  will reside here  permanently,
and they will _ certainly object to the
very gross corruption that has prevailed
in  British Columbia for the last four
years.      Land of a good quality for
agriculture, pasture or mineral purposes,
will become scarce, ahd the manner in
which certain lands were acquired, will
become the subject of earnest enquiry.
About that time Smithe, Robson & Co.
may be difficult to find, and the blessings ofthose who puttheir trust in them,
will follow them to their retreats.    The
laws added to our statute book during
the last four years must be repealed and
new laws framed that will be workable
and calculated for public benefit; not
such as to enable land grabbers to enrich themselves with  plunder from the
public domain.    We look for the restitution,  or at least payment in full by
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,
ot the six thousand acres of land at
English  Bay and Coal Harbor, now
illegally held by that Company.    It is
perfectly well-known that the local Gov-

Uooper vs. McKeever—The plaintiff,
sworn, said—1 am a aaddlur ; I sold defend*
tut these goods last June for %M ; they were
a aet cf harneas ; bnt the snaps and breast
Itrspa were f 1.75 extra.
Crow exummed by Mr. Bole—McKeever
.lid not take tbe collars but he waa ta pay
ior them anyhow; I never agreed to aell
them at $11 ; I was only one month io Mc*
Keeper's ehanty at $.'» a month ; 1 told him
1 would only stay aa lung as it suited me; J
went thereon the lat June and left on the
2nd July ; I did not give a formal notice or
any notice more than that 1 would leave
when i goc another bouse ; if McKeever
hiuled my furniture I know nothiug of it;
when I preaeuted the bill McKeever aaid be
only agreed to pay me $41 ; I swear by the
book, not according to memory ; McNeil
knew nothiug of the bargain.
Mr. McKeever, sworn, said—I bought the
harness for $41 without collars; I bave paid
into court the amount I owe ; McNeil wu
present at the bargain ; he is now away
Irom here ; I was employed by Hooper to
haul hia furniture : he had my house for
over a month.
After hearing Mr. Brown and Mr. Hen
dnrton as to value of harness, his Lordship
allowed Hooper $1 without costs.
Hughes vs. Bowman—action for $100
tresnpas-i to laud and for the conversion of
three logs.
The evidence showed that the parties were
rival claimants to Dominion laud, aud this
,.-Mi.M was brought to establish Hughes'
iilo. After somediacusai.mon the jurisdiction of the court, the ease was con lined to
tho log question. It appeared that theae
log •*, valued by plaintiff at $15 and by tbe
.letendant at S3, wore hauled close to defend'
a ut*-j house, as defendant alleged, to block
nis nad aud annoy him. After laying there
some mouths, Bowmau was building a barn
and considering them derelict went to use
them fur sills, when Hughes claimed them,
and B>wman offered to pay for them but
tlugh-.i would not take the money or the
log)., but went to Mr. McGillivray, J. I\, for
i warrant against Bowman for feloniously
appropriating the logs, which that gentleman
wry prop, rly refused to grant; thereupon
the plaintiff went to Mr. Ferris, who issued
pi wari'iuit: for the arrest of Mr. Bowman,
whi was sent for trial at the assizes, where
ihe Grand Jury without hesitation threw
out the indictment. It also appeared on
cross examination of plaintiff that he is entirely witnout any means, and was a farm
hand with Mr. W. Campbell, whoso land
adj litis that in dispute, aud that Campbell
advanced the money to go to law and carry
on litigation, the plaintiff giving his labor
to bay off the money.
Sir. Bowman swore that the whole buai*
nasi was, m hta opinion, instigated by Mr.
Cunflbfdl, and that the logs were pnt cn hia
land purely for annoyance.—Judgment re-

Mr. John Bright, who was invited to attend the presentation to Mr. Schnadhorst,

The London Standard says : Mr. Gladstone's laat contribution on the Irish question

We shall know before thia month i

meet at the time fixed and proceed to ubooae
a ruler of anti-Russian prepossessions, tha
Csar will have to decide quickly whether to
confront the wrath and contempt of his own
subjects, or to face the risks of war.
It is, to bs sure, conceivable tbat the Bulgarian Regent* may so far yield to pressure
from St. Petersburg as to postpone the convening of the Sobranje, bat they cannot
without violating the constitution, put off
the meeting more than thirty days after tbe
election. It is also true that the assembly
after coming together might defer decisive
action, bat only for a short time, since here,
too, intrigue would be trammeled by const!
tutional restrictions. Delay, however, could
but   weaken tbe position of  the patriotic
Karty, whoee adherents in the greater So-
raoje outnumber the partisans of Russia by
more than ten to one. A timid and dilatory
course, which wonld give the Cur's envoy,
Gen. Kanlbars, time tor bribery and intimidation, could only be imposed upon the Regency by the urgent admonitions of Austria

la tbs more offensive forms nf mild Idiocy
there ia always this disregard of tho well-
being of other*. There ia the peripatetic
idiot, who is always stopping to talk tn
somebody else iii the middle of the sidewalk
or ua a freqnented corner, taking pains to
do this when the streets are the fullest nf
pedestrians. There Is the dramatic idiot,
who sit* behind or in front nf you at the
theatre, and keeps telling his companion
what the actor* aro going to do next. There
is a female species of this genus who may be
the supposed intellectual wife of a woll
authenticated stupidity, to whose enlightenment sh* devote* during tho progrest of
the _pUy all hor attention. Her volubility
exoeedt that of a thouund-dollar-a-yoar
eoroiueriiisl traveller, and her voice it of
that carrying, F-in-alt kind that aggravates
the listener mora than the filing of a saw, or
* pine splinter vibrating in tbe winter wiud.
Let it bo said to the duoredit of hi* sex that
the musical idiot is usually a male. If you
have an oar /or music and it ia a favorite
opera, he takes pain* to sit beside you, and
when the marvellous voice of tbe tenor or
the utonuding organ uf the wonderful soprano is going up and up, liko Shelly's skylark, he beats time with his feet and emits
harsh, guttural sounds, that he thinks resemble tho air of tho singer, Tho exquisite
joys of music are evanescent at tho host, and
the musical soul is sensitive to the slightest
discord. Nothing oan bo done witb a pachyderm of this species. Tbere are fools and
idiots ho otiaugely constituted tbat they will
not believe that thoy are fools und idiot*,
even if you tell them. He ia one of tbat
kind, and tbe law, alas! does not allow you
to kill him, nor can he be put In a dark
sell, like the prisoner of Chilton, and fed on
moldy bread and tainted ment till bit discordant life fitly ends in a lingering death.
There mc otlier forms of musical idiocy
which are displayed Ih acrobatic feats ut nn-
timely hours on the piano, in tampering
with that exquisite instrument, the violin,
and in eliciting ear-piercing sounds from the
flute. But the type* are too commonplace
for scientific classification. So also are
those typos of idiocy that open alt the windows In midwinter and insist on having
them all closed in midsummer.
Ones in a crowded theatre the Orchestra
ceased its efforts with a great crush and an
abrupt silence, and a shrill voice was borne
to the uttermost part* of the vast auditorium, which said : "I like mine fried in butter'. " The incident ia mentioned in all tbe
histories of tbe period. It wat one of those
idiotic persons, * female in this instance,
who when they get to talking, can bu atop
ped by neither a steam brake nor the side of
a mountain It ia a numerous clsu, and its
representatives travel much on the atreet
cars aud often visit theatres and concerts,
where they insist on relating their private
affairs in toud, nerve-harrowing tones. They
have the kind of voice which, heard behind
you urthe street, ever pursues you, maintaining its penetrating quality in the univer-
ul din long after its owner has been dis-
touted and engulfed iu the heedlesa crowd.
Thia elite* of idiot* it moat vicious and offensive. Tbey have an acute form of the
malady transcending anodynes and anesthetics, and domaudiug heroic treatment.
Nothiug wili suffice but to extirpate the
present generation luid slaughter their children.
The idiocy of the average boy is of an ex*
aggerated kind. It can hardly be classed as
mild. He might properly be called an howling idiot, except that, not having arrived at
years of discretion, he is partially excusable
for the mental aberration which causes him
to violate all thn properties. A little later
he becomu an adolescent, when his idiocy
takes a sentimental form, lets disagreeable,
though equally selfish. The male biped just
entering manhood imagines that he is the
center of the solar system, and that about
bim revolve all the planet* and their moons.
He is not quite certain about the universe.
1} he walk* he thinks everybody is looking
at bim. When ho speaks be imagines every
one is listening. H* regards all mankind as
only an enlargement or broadening out of
the family circle, of which he hu been the
idol. Nothing but bard knocks cures this
form of idiocy, and it ie a sovereign remedy
except in r*ep*ot of oertsin cues specified.

cannot feel much sympathy with ft civilian
who bewails the loss of something whieh he

refused to bear her .share of the expense in
volved iu enforcing the joint ultimatum, aud
when Eugland wot saddled with the whole
burden of the war, beginning witb bombard-

it seems to be to Boulanger, that this is no
time for crying over spilled milk, or for stirring up new quarrels on thu flank while the
old duel with the deadly foo of the republic
may call ita whole resources to the front.
The sense of perspective nnrl proportion
would Im strangely lacking in Freuch pn-
trlots if they could be deluded into thinking
Cairo more desirable than Strasbourg, and
tbe Nile more precious than the Khine. Yet
nothing seems more certain thin that tho
wosniih behavior of De Freyuinet toward
England in relation to E/ypt must have a
tenuency to so intiame and alienate British
public opinion as to insure to Bismarck the
support of England's vast financial strength,
and perhape of her nuval power. Thus but
tressed, the Chancellor would know that
the French hunger for revenge would have
to pine unsatisfied for another generation, or
until Alsace-Lorraine had beeu irreparably
Besides, it is an iyttittjatttns that De Freyuinet is chasing. Until til'* ems*, supplants
the cresent on the mosque of St. Sopnia the
Turks will never sanction military ores-sure
upon Eugland to further French designs in
Egypt. So long as the outbreak of a war tn
southeastern Europe and an advance of
Russia on the Bosporus are problematic, the
renal Pasbaa who constitute the council
which we call the Porte will take bribes from
Frenchman and from Muscovite, and promise
a good many things that they wonld never
venture to perform. They value their lives
more than money, and they remembered the
uprising that swept Ahdul-Azia Irom his
throne. Even in Constantinople then* ia
aueh a thing as public opinion, and it is an
underlying terror of the Moslem population
of the capital that holds back the Pashas
from betraying the Sultan in any vital
point, and tho Sultan himaelf from betrayim/
tbo interests of Islam. While tbo present
generation lasts, the hundreds of thousands
of true Moslems in Stamboul will discriminate their friends from their moral
enemies. Thoy have not forgotten to what
power belonged the ironclads that rescued
them in February, 1878, when the roar of
Russian canon could bo heard nt San
Stefano, and if the Porte should once declare
war on England at the bidding of tbe Czar

We have always traced with pleasure tlte
sympathetic feeling that hat existed between
our own mother country and the mure juvenile portion of its family, the Ct-loni**, more
especially those of the Western Hemisphere;
as the progeny invariably imitates the example of it* parent, "oilo wo find it witb pur
foster ohildren north of the American frontier only with this difference, that tliey appear of late years to have almost ''stt-pped
Into their parent'* shoes " prematurely, ami
letting go the leading-strim-*, fearlessly
walked alone. This is evincible in various
wsys, to wit, the almost simultaneous advance in overy branch of science and art,
and the judicious adaptation to tht-ir own
purposes of the best and inns*, sterling invi-Ti
tions and discoveries that own their mi.in
to Old England itself. In nothing has this
beeo moro prominently cxemplilied than iu
tho adoption almost ss *' witb one voice" of
the remedies of Thomas Holloway, the
Pills for the internal, and the Ointment for
tho external diseases of the body : no sooner
were they ushered before the world from
their focal point of srigin, 244, Strand, than
thoy became with unanimity the lious.holil
medicines of Canada and the Rritish Provinces, and beiug especially adapted to the
settlei's wants, being Mc physician of the
backtcoodionan, in regions where the medical
practitioner and the medicine chest uere
unknown, they naturally becomo the only
"lieacon fires" qf health for tlie sick and
suffering in their new home in the far off
W* losra from statistics in tbe possession
of Thomas Holloway, that the first settlers
sent out to the Grand River by the New
England Company were required to provide
themselves with a household medicine of
their own choice. This, we need scan-ely
add, wss soon mado and Holloway's two
pcorl-ss but simple remedies became the
sever neglected items in tbe early emigrant's
store. As communication across tho Atlantic became more open and frequent, no sails
were Bet for America without some portion of
the cargo containing a good supply of theso
healing medicaments.
Success say we to this noble enterprise,
wbicb, simple In itself, is benign iu its influences, and has become giant in its operations.
The namo of Holloway will be known in
after ages as the watefneord oj hnilth.—Liverpool CrutcuU..
The newspapers at Athens, commenting
on the various phases of the eastern difficulty, conclude that England has been left
