brilliancy of a frosty night The moon
had juat risen. The surrounding country looked cold, dark, and gloomy.
Here and there a light shone out from
some cottage window or road-side lamp,
rendering the blackness more intense
No sound was audible, save the mighty
•a-ru-hing of the llMin. With a half
shiver I throw up the window, and went
l*cl_ io my corner. Contrary to niy
|usu_. haUt, 1 was strangely sleepy that
evening. Thia I attributed to a hard
day's work, combined with the change
from the heavy atmosphere of London
to the clear frosty air through which
we wore hurrying.
I can just remember hearing, as in a
dream, the prolonged   shriek   of   the
whistle as the train entered   the   long
tunnel just   beyond   Htroud.    In   my
  balf sleep I had a faint knowledge of the

Then, suddenly, that mysterious sense
took possession of me that moat nf ur
experience even in sleep when some one
is gazing at us. Have you ever looked
at a sleeping child, reader . I rarely do
so but at once a sense of uneasiness
seems to take possession of it: it stirs:
its eyelids quiver; the chances are that
it wakes up to consciousness. This
sense came   back   to   me   as    I slept

that, suggested madness, pale aa a spectre,
it was the man I had tern at the I'ml
dington station.
1 confess, and without much fear of
lieiug accused of cowardice, that for a
moment my heartstood still. The time
and the situation weresullii -ieully startling. In broad dayligl t it wnuld have
been an unpleasant surprise. In the
dark night, in the middle nf a gloomy
mysterious tunnel, its effect was heightened a hundred-fold. But I retained
my presence of mind ; and, even iu
lhat first moment, felt that I uiust be
,-aiitious. I was possibly in the power
of this man, and uny sign nf fear might
lie fatal.
I did not move; but, opening my
eyes to theii utmost width, I stared
back nt this mysterious traveller, who
came and went with such supernatural
jiii.M i- Then I gradually moved into
a more upright position.

or the pleading look of bin nervously
clasped hands. At once 1 felt that I
was safe at least from bodily violence.
"Who and what are you .„ 1 asked
quietly, looking as severely upon ihe
man as I could.
"A miserable wretch," he replied,
and I thought he would hun- hunt iuto
tears. "The most, miserable wretch
on earth. I throw myself on your
honour and protection, sir."
"My honour and protection!' I cried
indignantly. "As far as I can see it
is not a case for honour and protection,
but for a magistrate. 1 shall certainty
deliver you up at the nexl station."
The fellow fairly broke down He
threw himself on his knees hefore me,
and his utterance was broken I.y sobs.

started to hear llie man addr. ss me by
name- " if ever yon had mercy in your
life, have mercy upon me now. As you
hope yourself for mercy iu the next
world, he merciful lo me in this."
1 felt myself irresistibly influenced
by the man's manner. I could not
altogether pass over his appeal. There
waa a history behind all this. Here
waa no madman certainly; and as I
looked more closely at, the face I felt
drawn towards it. I motioned to the
young man to resume his seat.
"Now," I continued, when
done se, "tell me who and what ynu are,
and what you have done. Tell me the
whole truth, and leave me to judge, after
that as to what I shall do with you. In
the lirst place, how do you come to
know my name'/''
"Iiecause 1 know ynu, sir," he replied:
aud he had now calmer a and quieter,
though nut less distressed, manner.
"I know you well, though you do not
know me. 1 have seen you occasionally
in Portman Square when you have been
there, anil I Have happened to visit my
uncle, Brown, the bmler. It is Iiecause
I know you so well that the idea suddenly sefzed me to confess all to you
aud throw myself on your mercy and
goodness."
"Let alone my mercy and goodness,
I replied.    "You have no right to make

end to your story.    Whai is it you have
done!"

he   had
of Burt aud ll.-nry, the great diamond
merchants. Many a time 1 have taken
diamonds to Mr. Wellesley, gold Hum
to him, aud received his cheque. More
than once 1 have seen his whole oollee-
tion. 1 have watched him take tin-
small black l-ox from his safe and compare lhe stones with those 1 just sold
hini "
'What folly,'' 1 thought, as the
speai__ paused » woFw-nt, with an In
ward groan at my couan's imprudent-
I had taken to Mr.    Wellesley one
morning two or three stones   of "more
than ordinary value, and   he   brought
out his   whole    collection    to   make a
comparison.    He   bade   ine look   into
them and note   their   l-eauty.    I uas
laz/.leit    by the   sight, slid, I suppose,
at the idea of so much    being tin- por
perty of one man.    A demon at   that
instant took possession of me.    I could
have   declared      that    a   some-thing
tangible whispered to    ine    thai these
might become mine.     A  vision rose up
before me as   to   what    1    could   do.
From that moment 1 became possessed
as much, 1 verily   believe, as   the  men
than you read of inthe New Testament.
I was no longer my own master.     I had
lost my free will.    1   saw    when,   the
diamonds were kept.    1 noticed the key
as Mr. Wellesley placed it on the table
after locking up his treasure,    I studied
it during the   whole time   that he was
writing   out   a     cheque.     I    have
strangely accurate eye for form, and as
I left the room   I    made a   drawing of
of the key.    Even then I could hardly
tell why  I did it.    It wis   as   though
my mind and my hand  were guided by
aome mesmeric power, unseen but felt.
Bit by bit the madness gained upon me
of wishing to possess those   diamonds.
Day by day it grew   stronger   and less
controllable.    1 became ill and feverish;
I slept   little,   and   niy dreams   were
haunted by the flashes nf those stoneH.
Strange,   unaccountable   state   in oue
who had had handled and had the command   of   thousands     of   gems,   and
never felt the slightest wjkIi to possess
one."
"Strange indeed," I observed. "Do
you mean to say that you have had
controlof thestoresot Burt and Henry's,
and yet never coveted any but those
belonging to my cousin ?'
"Never, sir, on my honour; as truly
as that, we are now in Ihis carriage.
By night, 1 say I could not sleep. Uy
day 1 grew restless anil absorbed. My
companions noted the change, and
joked me with being in love, 1 wus
indeed in love, feverishly, insanely in
love; but not as they supposed.
One thought, one idea absorbed me;
the possession of those gems. My brain
had lost its balance. Sleep, rest, appetite, peace of mind—everything was
gone. Then caine the time when Mr.
Wellesley went to I'.rlsinero. I had
made n key as near to my model and
recollection as possible . I Went np to
iny uncle and asked hiui . to let me
spend a week with him. He readily
consented, for I am a favourite of his
You know, sir, though a servant, my
uncle has almost gentle blood iu Ins
Hints, He is well educated and Intelli
gent, too. But he is only my uncle by
marriage. That very lirst night, when
the house was asleep, 1 erepr out of my
owu room, slipped into Mr. \V_cllesley'8
and tried my key."
"And it succeeded 1" 1 interrupted,
involuntarily.
"No, sir, nol us yet. It wauled
altering, but I could tell tlint it would
succeed eventually. Kor several nights
I did the same I hin.,, until at last lhe
door stood open. I'he diamonds were
mine. This happened but two nights
before Mr, Wellesley's return home.
"But now, though the diamonds
were mine, so uncertain, so treacherous
is liiiiiinii nature, I suddenly lost all
peace of mind, all happiness. With
the success of my scheme I seemed to
realise for the first lime the enormity
of my crime. In short my mind had
recovered its balance. My companions
had noticed my altered appearance
liefore : tbey did so more than ever now.
I can safely say that not one moment's
rest have 1 enjoyed sine that one
fatal night. Not from the fear of discovery, bai as that has been, but for
the sin itself. I would have returned
them secretly- I would indeed—but
then came, the fuss, the commotion, the
town-talk, the advertisements, the
knowledge lhat Scotland Yard had the
mat ter iu hand, and I feared to do it. To
add to my misery, I was paialyzed with
terror. Nightly dreams of a felon's
fate, of working in chains, visited me.
1 would start up in the darkness, Ir- m-
bling with a wild fear, feeling ihe
clutch of a detective upon my arm, the
iron round my wrist. In short, I was
on the road to madness or death.
"I could bear it no longer. I asked
for a holiday. D was granted at once.
My principals saw I was ill, and thought
I needed rest: I was too good a clerk
lo them to be lightly esteemed. I left
directly. My mind was made up. 1
would'quit Kngland and emigrate.
When far enough a*ay to be in safety,
I would return the diamonds, and thus
inaome slight measure atone for mv sin
This »ery night I was ou my way to

from obseri-m ion iu u Bret class carriage than in any other. Now, I
thought, wus my opportunity : if I
COttld only have you to myself fur a
time in thf train. I gin inlo the compartment, and without noticing your
bag sat down upon it. Without reflection I pushed it behind me. The
next moment you looke I at me steadily,
then go up to the guard. My guilty
conscience made a coward of inc. I
told you.sir, passing his hand hurriedly
across his brow, "thai 1 have lately felt
almost mad. I thought you were
going to deliver me up to justice.
Upon impulse, without judgement, I
concealed myself under the seat A
man less slim and spare than f could
not have done it. Whit little flesh I
had upon my liones has been worried
off them."
He was indeed a pule, ,-iiilu.i'r...is
looking object, yet with Ilad's of refin
ment and good looks in his face. I
searched for any indication of an e. il ur
dishonest nature, and found none.
Meeting him iu the ordinary cireuin
stances of life it was li face I should
have (rusted   thoroughly.
"You have indeed acted imprudently,"
I said. "Had the guard looked under
the seat, nothing could have saved
you."
"True, sir. But I seemed to foresee
what would happen. You woultl
return to the coiiipurtineiii and conclude
you had made a uii-tuke. So il. proved.
1 have been gathering up my UOUfttgB
ever since we started to Coma oul and
declare myself to you."
The precious packet was iu my bands.
1 unwrapped the outer covering of
brown paper, ihen the wash-leather,
then opened the COttOll-wool. The
stones Hashed and scintillated ill (lie
'lim oil-light'. My companion put his
hands before his eyes, '*I cannot look
al I hem," he said : "the sight haunts
me with horror."    I m covered them
up again and put tie in into my bar^.
"What is your namo"" 1 asked.

"It llOlily iheold story, ' returned.
"My father died when I »as fifteen,
and 1 had to lum out into the world.
I told vou Brown wus only my uncle by
marriage. Years ago, my mother
sister ran away with him, not kuowiti
his position in life ; 'n.leed, at (hat
time it was far hotter than it is now.
She has long In-en dead -I never knew
her."
"Your mother is living, you say I"
"Yes, sir.    She has   a small   income
of her own,  just  enough   to  keep her.
She lives on    the    i Ht-kirls of  Her'

"Has she many children .'
"I am tho only child I have been
the oue hope of her life since iny I ilhei
died. I could never udl you what she
has been I o me, the sacrifices she has
made. And in this manner I have repaid  her. '
The poor fellow broke doa n again and
burst into tears, burying his face iu his
hands. As for myself, I found it. necessary to look out. foratew minutes into
the dark night, where I saw two moons
shiuiiig,ttiid many stars that would have

I held a long a ml Bftmesl conversation
wi'b ftfarehtuan.and was as kind and
considerate wiih liim as the circu ni
stances woold permit. His gratitude
was painful to witness. Overcome the
night before in making his confession,
he was doubly so now iu expressing bis
repentance. He listened to all I said,
and acquiesced iu ull I stipulated
that he should give up the ides of going
to Australia aud that lie should latum to his work after he had paid I
month's visit to his mother to recover
his nervous   power.    No   i  ihoold

it should be buried in oblivion. I

A (-Ialaxy of .1. IV*. We were favored
by the presence nl Mes-us. Pittendligb, Todd
and Ferris with chief constable .Moresby, on
Wednesday last. Such powerful protection
hud its duo effect ou our citizens and the terrible pioture of rapine and murder whieh was
to bn perpetrated hy the blood thirsty Italians gave place  to a sudden   burnt of martial
ardor that would have put Boinbtstet Pnri-
OM to shame. Some of onr brave hoys were
ready to get on the roofs of the houses to
watch the tight when the New Westminster
boys came tu give battle ! Tlio magistrates
themselves Huem to have imbibed considerable con rage Irom tin* pretence of yo many
of them, (ind sent telegrams ordering the
train bands at New Vveittnittltor to hold
themstilveo iu roadluetl lor immediate action ; this we know was done. We cannot
help thinking it was fortunate thai the mutter was settled us soon as tlie Italians could
be understood ; as, ff thetoldlen had been
brought over and the Italians led to believe
tbey were going to be shot or hayonetted,
serious consequence1- might have foi owed in
which the legality of the proceedings might
have been culled in question.
Vkky Hiiucuuius.—On Tuesday und
Wednesday last, onr citizens were worked up
to a state of great excitement, as it waa commonly stated thut a number of Italian. W ho
arrived from Winnipeg to work on the extension, a few days before, had threatened
to burn down thn ('. P. H. Cu't, buildiug if
they did uot pay them a certain amount of
wages which the bosses ub-jolutely refused t >
do. It was known that they nil carried
arms--revolvers or guns, and their reputed
facility with the knife added to the terror
with wliich a possible conflict was regarded.
Very original ideas were expressed us to the
best way to defend tlie town and the beat of
the dilCUtSlon involved u continued absorption of old Ky. Wt* learn that the
excitement st New Westminster waa still
greater and arrangements wero absolutely
made to bring over the great guns tiloug
with the artillery and rifle corps. All this
kettle of fish began and ended iu the fact
that no one eould understand what the
Italians laborers said, and finding that they
were roughly treated without uny apparent
reason, they naturally got, "riled." There
ran be no dmibt that they were hired at
Winnipeg for {.1.40 p-jr day, ami thut tjiey
did not feel inclined to work for that sum
when their fellow laborers here were getting
SW.OO. They were ultimately appeased by a
few fair words, the promise of ten cents per
day additional (making $I.oOl und the promise of a free ride to Winnipeg if tbey desired tu go baek a^aiu.
Wi ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
laide at H o'clock on Tuesday morning uud
■teamed up the Praesrfor Chilliwhack, to
Which place we were cordially invited on the
68th anniversary of the order of Oddfellows.
A great many would-be excursionists
tinned bach eouseipiently upon the iocle*
money of the weather, so our number WU
not as large as it otherwise would huve been.
Nothing of unusual interest transpired during the trip. Owing to the continuous rain
during tbe dny we were debarred from seeing
the snow tupped mountains nnd the delight
ful tannery, conspicuous on more fovorubh
occasions, and for which the district ji
deservedly famous.
We arrived at Chilliwhael. the place of
our destination at 1:30 p.m., and were met
by the memben of the Excelaior Lodge, in
full regalia who escorted us in carriages,
baroiicnet ind buggies to Henderson ball
where J, C. Henderson, tit']> welcomed us
in a brilliant ipeachi which was appropriately responded to by a member of our
order from the Royal City.
At this hall we patted the time pleasantly
and enjoyed tin- amusements provided for us
until ."> o'clock wheu we were escorted again
to a sumptions feust ot the richest and must
delicate viands to which all did ample
justice.
After supplying the wants of the inner-
man, we utt ended u concert consisting of
tableaux, charades, vi ■ , duets, and dialogues, and had a most enjoyable time. It
mutt be said to the credit cf those who took
part in the concert that they rendered their
respective parts with admirable merit.
The beautiful and accomplished young
ladies for whom Chilliwhack has long been
noted, have exquisite voices and sang with a
sweetness and richness of voice creditable to
the largest metropolis of the Aineric.au continent. Tho concert over, the bids and
lasses tripped the light "fantastic toe" until
the wee small hours of morning.
Then bidding an a flee tion ute farewell to
hospitable )>eople nf OhltUwhtok who did
everything in their power for our amuse*
incut and comfort, we boarded our homeward bound boat and reached the Royal
City in due time. It had been conceded by
every one who participated iu the excursion,
and partook of the princely banquet, and
who attended the i-ubsequent concert that
n more thoroughly enjoyable affair never
came under their notice on any previous
ooootlon, and in this connexion too much
cannot be said ofthe kindness and affability
of the citizens of Chilliwhack for whom we
shall always cherish un indelible  reniemher-
ance.

Civil wsr rages in Afghanistan aud the
Ameer ii by no means getting the better of
it against the Uhilztii. The cause in dynastic more than anything else, as until t comparatively recent period tbo Ameers of Afghanistan were taken from the Ohilzais.
Hut Ite-ndes this the Ameer Abdurhamau bas
received large suppl.ps of money ami arms
from Calcutta of which the Chilzai** claimed
a share and fsJIing iu that are now making
effort to obtain the whole. It is more
thau probable the Rus-dan* are nee ret ly urging and aiding the Ohilzais and that something may arise from the internecine conflict
but seeing that Kngland hus just given Rus-
sis such large concessions ss re^st'ds bound*

would Ite the height of impudence to ask
more. Still the llussiaos are a queer lot,
and theu there is always that untorttiuutc

The British Parliament has beeu the arena
of many wild and exciting scenes the past
week. Mayor Sauu'lerson, leader of the
loyal Orangemen, in a speech he made supporting the Coercion Bill, charged the Irish
iiicinbcci with being iu alliance with the
murder societies of America, whereupon the
renowiit.d Tim Healy of the Hesly clause
stood up aud said, " If the honorable mem
ber refers to mu he is a liar."
This little sully caused great uproar aud
on a vote Tim was suhpended for a week aud
now looks dou n trom the struufiers gallery
at the proceedings. Mujor Saundersou con*
tinued his speech in the same Btruin uot
taking anything btek >* ie-u Sexton rose and
said "if the honorable and OoAmJ gentleman
refers to me he is u liar and a coward and if

him within an inch of his life." The uproar
and run In 'hoi increased uml the first
assembly in the world became a beargarden,
the Tories wanted Sexton suspended also
but thu Speaker refused saying Mr. Sexton
had received great provocation. Ho therefore directed the "gallant" major to withdraw his assertions and Sexton to do the
same but refused, illogically enough, to reinstate Mr. Healy,
The second reading of the Coercion bill
was carried by a majority of 101. Three
Liberal Unionists voted against the hill
and ten abstained from voting. The late
anti-coercion demonstrations in Kngland has
frightened the Liberal Unionists, threats
from their constituents alarmed thuui nioru
but the defeat of coercion candidates iu tlie
recent bye-elections frightened them worst of
all. The day before the division the Londou
Timtt published a facsimile of a letter
ullegcd to have been written by Mr. Parnell
to friends in America after tbe Pluenix park
murders apologizing for having expressed
sorrow at them, and stating it was necessary
in order not to outrage public opinion in
Kngland. You can form au idea of the ex
c.temeiit this letter created. There was a
rUBh for the Timm anil some of the Liberal
Unionists who were wuvering felt that the
letter had strengthened ami straightened
their vertebral column. Parnell characterizes
the letter as an iiifaiuous forgery and all but
passionate Tories who believe the Irish
capable of anything, believe him. The Timet
says quite coolly, "well, if it is a forgery why
don't you oome on and prosecute me, 'which is
very tine when it knows no jury could be
got to convict. Steps are to be taken to
bring-the editor of the Timet before the bar
of the Homm uf Commons.
Mr. Parnell complains that the Tories ure
fighting bim with loaded dice. When hu
wanted to inakeau explanation in the llouue
of tho letter btnlnetl, before the reporters
(left, so that it Wonld reach the public before
I the vote, Mr. Balfuttr refused to yield him
the ten minutes he asked for, and altogether
the Oovernment is abusing its privileges.
Still the tide of public opinion in Kngland
is running strongly in favor of (iladstuue
and Parnell, and it is said were another
geueral election to take place tomorrow the
Tories would be defeated.

The discovery of extensive gold deposits in

proposal for a survey ol tbe boundary between Alaska and Canadian territory, and
that some correspondence had ensued upon
it, but no definite result had yet been attained, the Unit.- '1 States Congfatt having
recently refused tbt appropriation proposed
for a preliminary survey. Whether this
refusal is part of the "retaliatory policy''
aimed at Canada if hard to say. Past experience of similar lwundary disputes, both

llis moat ^iatiUin^ to observe the
great interest evoked of late,in our inin-j
mg wealth. llie ( olonial exhibition at i
London and the display of ipei iioens
bad their due elect, in conjunction with
1x1 ul.ir liciiionstiation in the CMC of in-:
fluential |iersons who have recently
visited this Province and examined our
nunc-. We do imt boast of mineral
resources without the actual presence
ol immense dcpuntl of the precious
Detail; tbey are almost everywhere to
be seen and have only remained un-
worked because our |«ipulation is small
and our means very limited. The
ipening at the mines in the Selkirk
range will also give I great im*H*tus
towards development. There are not
hss than fifty diffcruil leads so far
.xplored as to afford 1 onvini ing proof of
tlie presence of rich paying veins in the
Sclkirks alone, and how many will in
course of time lie added to this number,
il is impossible to say, as this remarkable portion of the gold range is permeated with rich i|uartz from Kootenay to
Big Bend. The strange part of the
matter is, the slowness with which Knglish capital is attracted to this Province.
It is nue lhat little is known in England
about us; the strangest ideas exist there
as to our whereabouts and this ignorance would no doubt have continued
for some time longer had it not lieen
for the extraordinary efforts of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
and their [allies the smaller speculators, such as the Vancouver landowners
-who have, by paying the newspa[>ers
10 puff their lots, distributing pamphlets
and maps, made the British public
iware of our position, and our mineral
wealth. It does not seem that our very
important position as holding the gateway on the Pacific to the Dominion,
las ever occurred to theni ; and the
existence in British Columbia of the
finest and most extensive beds of coal
on the Pacific ; the richest and most
easily worked iron and copper ores
with the most perfect facilities for shipment anywhere to be found appears to
ie but little known. We are informed
that some of our valuable beds of
iron have attracted attention and it is
said that wealthy companies are about
to work them. It is difficult to imagine
a finer field for the accummulation of
great fortunes than in this Province.
We are lhe nearest point on this continent lo Australia, Japan, lhe East
Indies and China. Shipbuilding in
iron, rolling mills, nail factories, marine
and other engines, boiler manufactories,
and indeed every branch of trade connected with iron and copper working
could be carried on in this Province at
a profit, for export, setting aside the
local trade which will go on increasing
year by year as capital is invested in
our Quartz mines. The prosecution of
gold mining bas been confined to the
crumbs which were gathered from the
creeks and gullies where they bad been
carried for ages by the water (lowing
from the mountains ; they were produced by the abrasure of glaciers on
the numerous quartz reefs over which
they had passed in their descent to the
valleys. There are still large areas
where these deposits of gold have been
deposited and which bear the name of
placer mines, but the working of the
matrix or reef, whence these deposits
came, has been beyond the power of
our people. These are now likely to
be extensively worked, and the un
doubted wealth which will be derived
from the crushing of'the quart-,**, ill give
this Province en: long, the reputation
of a perfect Golconda. The cxtraordi
nary richness of the African reefs, has
recently surprised the world ; but there
arc many drawbacks on the Dark Continent. In the first place, the climate
is oppressively hoi, and then the cost
of transporting machinery is something
enormous. With us the case is entirely
different. Our climate is all that could
be desired, particularly by the Anglo
Saxon or bis offshoots. 'The food that
best suits him is close at hand, procur
able at a moderate price ; water is
everywhere plentiful and timber in
abundance. 'The raw material to construct machinery is inexhaustible, and
the distance from the British Isles requires only about fourteen or fifteen
days travel, sev.n days by water and
the remainder by rail. Capital is very
ti'nid and requires undoubted proofs of
profitable investment before it can be
drawn to any particular point. This
proof has not been perceptible, hitherto,
in this Province. The placer diggings
required very little capital to bring their
wealth to the surface, and where capital
was secured from abroad for this purpose, it was generally wasted, at any
rate, was not remunerative. It will be
a diffeient matter with the quartz reefs,
which being thoroughly prospected and
known to coutain material enough for
many years working, will pay a hundredfold the investments and make
more millionaires than the mines of
California, because they are more extensive and are to be  lound from  one
end of the country to the other. A
gieat advantage to be derived li.'in milling investments in this Province om
those in the United St.nc
that British law is administ.-i.J licic,
and barefaced swindling cannot be |icr-
lictrated with impunity. Our Province
is simply a continued series of mineial
dejiisits and will be covered by an immense jiopulation oi buy raters in
the near future.
E*OREIGN AliAlks.
The   Irish  Crimes'  Bill is making a
famous   stalking    horse    from   behind
which the question at piesent disturbing
Europe are being treated by the British
Government. The more noise made
about it the bettei and the more li\cd
the attention of the nation the easier
will lie the task of the foreign minister
to carry out his diplomacy abroad.
For, in spite of the most distinct assurances of i_eace, there can lie no doubt
ofa general fear ol war, and that at no
distant day. We have from time to
time endeavored to show that a contest
is deemed advisable and necessarv in
the present disorganised state ol the
various peoples, arising from an artificial
state created by reckless competition in
manufactures, rapid increase of |<opi;la-
tion, sudden depression from glutted
markets, with a consequent lack of employment which means misery to the
working classes; this last, eagerly
seized by Socialists and Anarchists as a
means of propagating their doctrines,
has created such a disease in the body
politic that nothing less than the drastic
effects of war can cure it. Seeing that
war must come, and knowing that
modern warfare is very costly, the nations are looking about for the best
means of re-imbursing themselves when
war is over, should they escape annihilation themselves. 'The first object will
be to enter u*>on what will be a popuiar
war with the great mass ol the people
and then, the advantages to be gained
when it is carried to a successful issue.
For the Russians—the most likely people to seek amelioration of their condition by war, any contest that will take
them into a better country than their
own, would be popular. For instance,
the invasion of the Balkan principalities
or 'Turkey, would meet with general
favor, but such an incursion would be
stoutly resisted by all the other European powers and might result in failure.
Another and equally esteemed prize is
Persia, and it has the advantage of only
being likely to be contested by a single
power and that power, F.ngland. We
had the pleasure to read an excellent
article in Blackwood's for this month,
written by Colonel Malleson and he
conclusively shows that the present designs of Russia are not directed to
India; the fomenting of disorder in
Afghanistan and the presence of Russian troops in the vicinity of the
Ameer's dominions are simply to amuse
the British while the process of absorbing Persia is going on. lt appears
from his statements and he is evidently
well informed, that Russia has been engaged for a number of years in preparing Persia for assimilation ; the subjects
of Shah in Shah are thoroughly Rus-
sianised and can be taken over at
any moment. 'The country is a terrestrial paradise, rich in everything that
that could make a people happy, and
would be esteemed a land of Canaan
by the Russians. But there are a number of strategical advantages in its position that would secure to Russia the
easy conquest of 'Turkey and the ultimate conquest of India. To secure
possession of the Persian (Jul. would
make Russia the greatest power in the
east, and mistress ol" the world. Such a
wonderful destiny may well engross not
only the Czar but the whole Russian
people, and fully justifies the recent
enormous exjienditure in constructing
the trans-Caspian railway and maintaining large bodies of lroo|is in Central Asia. 'There can be now no possible doubt that for the last twenty years
Russia has been gradually drawing a
circle round Persia. She cribbed a
considerable slice of the beautiful province of Khorassan from Persia in order
to make a railway all along its borders,
and sbe secured Sarahks not as a means
of defining the border of Afghanistan,
but to give her a strategical position to
defend her conquest of Persia when
everything is ready. If England had
been governed by any one but ti lad-
stone she never would have been per
mittcd to take Sarahks, although it was
obtained from Persia ; bul, Mr. Gladstone, was no doubt deep in his home
rule policy and perfectly regardless of
anything else. It is quite evident that
the present British (Iovernment is alive
tothe movements of the Muscovites,
but they have secured a vantage ground
which it may cost England many great
sacrifices to take from them. Persia
may yet be the scene of the greatest,
struggle of modem times.

wuuld provide vessels far in udvauce ol anything tilat has yet beeu submitted to the
Admiralty for the purpose of aiined cruisers.
They would be of large size, of exceedingly
high ap'ic.l, provider) with twin screws, have
their engines and boilers placed below the
water-line, be divided into Duineroui '-'iin-
partmeuts, and have a protected stc-ring
gear. Ill regard to capacity, tlu-y would be
capable of coiiveyiug fully '2,0UO men, whom
they could laud at Ituiuliay, via the Suez
Canal, in 14 days, or via the ('ape in '_■_'j
days. Their coal capacity would be such
that at a cruising speed they oould probably
keep the sea for A long period, probably not
less than three mouths. Jt is also proposed
that the owners should arrange for at least
half the crew to consist of men lietouging
to the Koyril Naval reserve. As raepeet. the
Canard Company,   that   company   already

had they been cun-trin-ti'd upon designs to
meet then-i-iiquireineiits, yet their lordelilpi
think they are vessels nf sueh high speed
ami such a high class that their retention ly
the hoard for national pui-[iose.s, when re-

entered into negotiations to retain the Um-
brie, the Ktruria, and the Anrania, iisteiiinei
almost etjtial iu speed, OS similar terms to
those iiu.de with the White Still- Company.
The annual expenditure for the retention of
these vessels will amount to au average of

A remarkable state of things has come to

dependencies. In the past ten yeais up
wards of #250,000 worth of propel t \ ban
lieen lost on the road and never a clue to
the robbers found until last week though
detectivos have been dilligeutly at work.
The property lost, nr rather stolen, included
every known article of commerce except a
coflBn and a blacksmith's anvil. It Included
a silver communion service, which was
found lately on the table of a brukeman,
who bad 1-orrowed it from another brake
man, to celebrate a christening. It appear-*
that some of the conductors, firemen, and
hrakemen, all along the line from Pit tslnu ■_■,
Pennsylvania, to Columbus, Ohio, had formed tnemsclvc. into a gang, and robbing
the freight cars right and left distributed t he
plunder among themselves. Sixty of the
confederates were arrested yesterday, and
their houses searched. The article* lound
would freight a whole train. On the persons
nf every one of them wero discovered more
or less pawn tickets. And one of the persons
stated that they had disposed of the stolen
goods to ''fences** all along the line, all of
whom will be arres'-ed.
Lord Lanadowne is now in almo.-t ns precarious a position as the Onr of all the

that accompanied theni until the blood
almost boiled with indignation, nnd threatening letters formed the principal portion of
His Excellency'.-* mail. Detectives have
been detailed to guard his person around

adopted to guard against assassination.

Tho following utterances of President
Lincoln. In declaring his principles with regard to the settlement ot the tlillereuces between the Northern aud Southern States,
were received with enthusiastic applause,
bnt seem much at variance with the -.euti-
uieiits now so freely and frequently expressed
on the other side witli regard to the stftte ol
Ireland.
The historian ol his iuuugural juurueys
writes : "By his every spi-'ech, at every
stuuc of his journeys, ho was lifting men
above the sph-re of party polities and pergonal preferences iuto that of political
luty and the broadest statesmanship."
Mr. .IcH'eiKon Davis iu an address at Montgomery, Feb. I.S I MOO, declared that "ths
timo for 0 unpromise i- now* past ; and tin-
South is determined to hold her position, and
make till who oppose her smell Southern
gunpowder, aud feel Southern steel if
eoendon is perflated in."
Mr. Lincoln, in the first of his state papers,
after expressing his opinions on the different
points of controversy, proceeded to plead
with those, who loved the Union :
'I hold that in contemplation of universal
law, and of the Constitution, the union of
the States is perpetual. Perpetuity is
implied if not expressed in the fundamental
law of all national Covcrnment. It in safe
to assert that no government proper ever
had a provision in iti organic law for its
own termination. No State, out of its own
men notii.n, oan lawfully get out ofthe
Union.
'I'pou such tjiicHtions we divide into
majorities and minorities, If the minority

government must cease. If the minority
will secede rather thau acipiiusce, they make

The \ ienua correspondent of the.S>ifW",./,

in oonsidenbU anxiety in responsible circles in Yicnna. It is li'sld by some that the
attacks ou Prance m the Berlin Press have
no other object than to make an impression
to St. Petersburg, whei-c the real danger
lies. A report in the Paris Figaro ot sn interview between one of its correspondents
and Baron-lomini has accentuated this uneasiness as to the designs of Russia. Joinini

present Foreign Minister, although he con-
uenled his feelings fnr some time ; but, unless the Fiijam interview is an invention, he
has throws aside the maak, and issued a
programme which is identical with that of
M. Katkoff. Another publication, which
has caused even greater sensation, appears
in thu pr.sthrr tdoyd in tlie shape of a letter
from St. Petersburg. Thin, I am informed,
reached the Vienua Foreign Oftice from a
confidential agent now travelling in Russia,
and was sent to the Ptntktr Lloyd for publication. It .-.peaks openly of the system of
double (iovernmout whioh prevails iu Russia under the present Czar, stating, as an
instance, that whilst M. de <biers was con"
fcrring with Piinco Bismarck last August
at Prau/eiinbad, uud afterwards at Berlin,
several Prenchmon, duly accredited by persons 'who have a voice in the decisions of
tbo French Republic,'arrived iu Russia to
confer with M. Katkoif, and that they also
came to an agreement, juv-t as did M. De
(iicrs and Prince Bismarck. The 'unofficial'
agreement was in writing, and was laid before the Czar before the reports of M. De
Qlera arrived, The agreement arrived
at, the tetter goesou to say, was that public
opinion in France, so far as it was manageable, should recognise and foster Kussiau
aspirations in the Balkan Peninsula, with
the exception of Constantinople, in return
tor v. liieh M. Kutkotl' undertook systematically to undermine German influence at the
Imperial Court. M. Katkoff and his visitors
agreed further, that both parties should
strain every nerve for bringing about a
Russo-French alliance, France to support a
Kussiau occupation ot Bulgaria, and Russia
to prevent u German attack on France. The
< or respondent asserts that the Czar saw
these protocols, and 'in Iii* heart,' approved
of them, but did not give any definite decision. Meanwhile, the latter part of the pro
gramme hai certainly been carried out,
France supporting Russian actions, what*
ever they may bo, iu Bulgaria, and Russia
withdrawing from the Skernievice Agreement, aud de.-hiring for the policy of the
freehand. If all this he so, it is eaey to
understand why the Berlin semi-officials
have been let loose on General Boulanger.
All now depends ou the action of the Czar,
who seems to lean towards the Katkoff and
-loi.iiui programme. It is said that after
dining with the Czar the other day the
Czarina presented M. Katkoff with portraits
of the Imperial pair set iu diamonds."

Attbmpt to MiriUIKH lU'SSJAN QlNI-t-
als.—The Vienna Tagtiloti haa leei-ived information from Hussia stating that as
tienoral Uresxer, the St Petersburg Prefect
of Police, was driving with General
Jurkowski, tho holder of the same post iu
Moe.uw, a man fired a revolver several
times at them both, but without effect. As
he was about to be arrested he fired at his
own head, and dropped down dead. He is
supposed to lie  a foreigner.
A Wkak lino.hkii Detected,—A Good
Templar in Chicago, Cal., took something
stronger than water and went lip to the
lodge room. He knocked at the inner door
and gave the pass word to the guardu.ii,
who was a Milesian, and who had, with the
mother-wit of his race, placed his nose to
the wicket instead o{ his ear. He repeated
the word "Abstinence" the second time,
and asked: "Dennis, why .lonelier open 'er
door. Hain't 1 got the right pass-word!"
"Yes, sor," bawled Dennis, within hearing
of the whole lodge, ."yuu do he having the
right pass word intirely, but, be jahcre, nor,
yer. hsve the wrong shmell."
