While cruising along tho Krou Coast
in 1868, I frequently met a schooner,
wbicb for many reasons attracted my
uttentinii. There was nothing suspicious
in her general appearance. She was a
very ordinary craft with rather full
ho.ts and a remarkably straight deck
line, which latter peculiarity was the

natives l nearly anvays -oumi that she
had preceded me ; anil she always got
under way and went to sea almost
immediately after. I could not under
such ciicumstances help suspecting that
she was in charge of a shrewd trailer,
who managed to keep ahead of me and
get the cream of the trade. At Grand
Talnir I resolved to ascertain, if possi
ble, her nationality. I accordingly)
dipped my colors, as she sailed away,
and had no sooner done so than sbe
displayed a Brazilian flag at her peak
and oipped it in response. This caused
mc to reflect. 1 hud never seen that
flag before on ihis coast, and ennse.
quently concluded that she was
shipping slaves. But on thn other
hand, slavery was virtually abolishod in
Brazil. Tho Emperor bad signed tbe
law which makes every one born on
Brazilian soil free; and stringent
statutes had been enacted against the
importation of slaves. I afterward,
ihile at PiriiHiiiliuco, learned that
slaves continued to be landed near that
The chief of the Grand Tabor, in
answer to my inquiries, informed me
that the captain of this schooner was
engaging krou men to work for one
year at four dollars per month, and
agreed to return them at their homes
at the expiratioa of their contract
He wanted two hundred and had
already got more than one hundred on
board. He had given them two
months' advance — eight dollars—to
have with their friends, when he bad
engaged them. I communicated my
suspicions to the obitf, *ho was at
lirst incredulous, as so many are
shipped every year to work in the
Gambia and at Sierra Leone, who al-
tays are return'd. Ho finally despatched canoes down tha coast to
•tarn the other chiefs, and ask them to
rescue those who had already been
enticed on board. But when I reached
Grand Berily, I saw the Brazilian sailing ofl' with the American flag at hi»
peak. J learned on shore that he had
succeeded in getting his complement of
Uo hundred on board, and I had no
doulit that lie was taking these men
over to sell as slaves. Tbe latter believing that tbey were on their way
to work as boatmen or laborers—they
cared not where -were not confined, as
in ordinary slavers, but were employed

as they were capable of doing, on hoard
They were all able-bodied men,- women
ould have been comparatively useless,
ns their children would have been born
free,—ar.d, as the passage across is
short, nnd they wero not confined, they
were likely to reach their landing
place in the New World in the same
good condition as that in which they
were shipped.
The ni'iivi- account explains the
mode in whieh they were shipped, and
further comment is unnecessary. But
the reader will like to know how they
were Unded in Brazil, in spite of the
stringent laws which forbid their impel tut ion,   and  to every   violation of

cannot explain this better than
lating the facts which I learned afterward concerning the landing of a
similar cargo, while I was at Pcrnain
liuco, from this same •vessel. I was
sojourning at the Grand Hotel de
I' l:nivers, and bad been there about
three weeks, when I chanced to meet
an elderly Irishman who had been in
the country for years. It happened in
tins wise. I had crossed the bridge
from Recife to San Antonio, and intended, after promenading a little, to
go to Aflogados or Maadelena. I
turned in the Rita Florentina, and bad
not proceeded v, v far on that street
when an old and \ nerable looking man
accosted me politely and asked if I
*ere not a stranger in Brazil. I replied that 1 » as, whereupon bp said,—
I have noticed you at Recife, and
a friend of mine has informed me that

country, and if you will not consider
me presumptuous, I will offer you my

1 could not do otherwise than thank

decided to   become better   acquainted
will  him.    Hence I replied.—

I acceded at once, and we proceeded
on our Wsy to Santo Amargo. I
found, as we »ent, that my gray-haired
companion was a good talker, that be
knew every nook and corner we passed
and wss unusually well informed.
The afternoon passed away pleasantly.

an early day.
Donnelly accompanied me to
hotel, dined with me, and for the next
three or four weeks, we met every day,
when I had no other appointment. I
gradually acquired a friendly feeling
for the old man, who was thirty years
my senior, but just as young in bis
habits attd tastes. He was as vigorous
as most men of thirty, and as gay as
the most light-hearted Frenchman.
We went through all the monasteries
of Olinda together; we rode to
Oaxanga one day, and to Aflogados
and Magdelena the next. At night
we went to the theatre, visitinn the
"Oymnasio Dramalico" and the "Thtatro
San Antonio." The Roman Catholic
churches were then under an interdiot.
The bishop, learning that many of the
lay hrethern were Freemasons, bad
forbidden the priests of his diocese
from having any religious services in
the churches. Oonsequiatly they
were all thrown open, every Sunday,
and a promiscuous throng passed in
and out, while brass bands played
dance music and lively airs in the
chancel. Rockets and other fire-works
were also fired from the windows ; and
all the bells rang in a most discordant
manner and created an unearthly din.
Hence oue Sunday evenings were
passed going from one to another of
the churches, where we would elbow
our way through the throng, meeting
here and there a priest in robes, who
glided noiselessly along with his lips
moving as if he were muttering to
himself. Intrigues went on undis
-orbed,—everything, in fact, save
that for which the edifice* had been
erected. On our way home we would
find the theatres brilliantly illuminated
and • ould saunter in to witness half of
the performances.
Thus our time pasted away pleasantly
until the arrival of the Eothen, a
steam yacht belonging to the same
gentleman as tbe Cambria which endeavored to win back the Queen's cup
from New York. She is an elegant
little steamer, with first-class accommodations for thirty-one passen
gers, and had on board, besides the
owner. Hon. W. Stanhope, Dr. Cole
and Lieutenant Pipe of the Royal
Navy and Lord Neville. She was to
touch, after leaving Perharabuco, at
Babia, Rio de Janiero, Tantos, Montevideo, Buenos Ayres, Cape of Good
Hope, Natal; St. Helena and Ancen
sion. Donnelly and I met at the land
ing; and, as we shook bands, the for
mer said,—
"I want to see you on particular
business this afternoon.
"Very well; well go over at once."
And so saying I led the Way across to
the hotel and up into my room.
When we were seated I took a cigar,
— Donnelly did uot smoke, — and
waited to hear what be had to say. A
long silence followed, and at  length he
I hud   a   long   conversation   with
Gabriel Antonio yesterday. He Wished
to know why we had not called upon
him, and made  me  promise,   before I
left, that I would do my best to induce
you to accompany mn to his house next
"Well, I   suppose I may  as well go
then, as at any other time ; and I will.
How shall we go 1'
"The   passengers of the Eothen are
to play a ga*ne with   our Cricket Club

"Arrange it as you   please," said I.
"I shall be satisfied if you will."
"All   right," said he ; and   after a
short pause, he  drew from bis  breast
pocket a chart  ou a  large   scale  of a
small island, which he spread upon the
"This," he continued, "is a chart of
the island of San Aleixo, whioh t own;
and thinking   that you   might like to

I have got good stone from its quarries,

streets here.    It has, as you can see,  a

wiih a good depth of water, whioh ex.
tends nearly tu the centre of the island;
and it can oiler an exc lleut hiding

or from the deck of a passing ship.
At length we reached the bridge that
leads to San Antonio, and paused before crossing. There were many vessels
moored side by side, nearly all of them
loaded with dried beef; and, on tbe
San Antonio side a little below the
bridge, there was a schooner to which
Donnelly pointed, saying.—
"That 's the vessel."
I glanced in tin-direction he pointed;
and there was a familiar look about the
craft whioh at once attracted my atten
tion. I had seen her before, or
another like her ; 1 reflected for a mo
m-nt, so as to recollect where, if possible.    Still uncertain, leaked,—
"In what trade bas she been en
gaged r
Donnelly looked at me suspiciously,
and said,—
"Are you a Mason ? I mean can you
keep a secret f"
"I think I can," I replied 'and you
can speak freely."
"Well," replied be, looking round
cautiously, and assuming what he doubt
le s, considered ns a very mysterious
and' wise look, "she s been in the
African trade."
I think I've see her," 1 said, on the
Krou coast."
"Very likely; she discharged her
last cargo at my island, and had taken
it in somewhere ou that coast.
"What kind of a cargo was it V I
exited him.
Two hundred strong, healthy
niggers, whom the captain had
regularly engaged as laborers under an
agreement that they would work a
year at four dollars (eight md res), 1
believe, a month."
'What became of them I"
"They were all sold before the vessel
arrived ; and all we had to do was to
deliver them to their purchasers, with
whom they went off, well contented.
They never even suspected that tbey
were slaves till tbey had reached and
worked for some days on the plantation.
When they landed, we told them that
they were to sleep for that night in a
long, strong shed I hod ou the island,
divided into compartments, in each of
whieh we put ten. After they had all
gone to sleep we locked them in. The
next morning we let them ont, one lot
at a time, and even then they suspected
nothing. If tbey bad, we could have
managed them easily, as we had only
ten tn take care of at a time, and had
ample force for that. They are all
working contentedly, and are most excellent laborers."

'I understand ; your Officials an* imt

"Possibly," I  said, "but   let's goon
board.    I'm anxious to see this old ac
quaintance of mine." *
We crossed over the bridg., and engaged a boat to go on board. At we
approached I er, I bad a good opportunity to observe her model, the was
sharp forward, and gradually tapered
from her waist to her stern. She had,
in nautical parlance, a "clean run."
Above her water line she wa* de
ceptive ; for she bad the old-fashioned
full bow, with heavy looking stern
which were in vogue when clippers
were rare- And, on that account, she
would not have been likely to
bave been suspected, if seen at sea,
as being engaged in an nnlaw
ful traffic I found everything on
board scrupulously clean, and she had a
between deck which was very spacious
in proportion to her tonnage. Beyond
this there was nothing remarkable
about her. She wis in charge of a
Brazilian who had acted as mate the
preceding voyage. He was on board,
and spoke Englfsh quke well. He was
very communicative,—Donnelly having assured him that he could be so
without fear,—aad spoke freely of the
voyage he bad recently, made in her,
and told me at considerable length
how thr* had procured the men.

We |*rt-d at t'.e landing to meet
the next, Sunday at the .Largo Santo

tbat 1 had bitten ai the bait held out
by Autum . through him, ami I allowed
hioi to think so.
Sunday tame, and I went at the appointed time lo Santo Ain,rgo. I met
Donnelly at soon as I had reached the
ground, which 1 found thronged with
visitors. A long line of carriages extended along t»o sides of the latge
l,wti, Irom which their occupants were
to witneas the game. The old adage
"Wben in Rome, do a* the Romans
do," wa* well exemplifi-d. Sabb.th-

pic ed men from the crew of the

on lhe ground to witness the game,
weie tbe English Consul >itli Dr. Cole
and Lieutenant Piper. Jutt before ihe
game began, a servant came up, with
Antonio's compliment*, to inform us

v At it« conclusion we left th- ground
wiih Antonio, pre*sad over to Boavisia,
■nd rolled rapidly aloni* the road tn
Maglelena, to an elegant villa standing
at some distance from the road, and si-
most hidden by a Inxuriaul growth of
tropical plants. The grounds were
most tastefully laid out. As we approached the dwelling, wc saw the.!
preparations had been made for nur
reception, as a table had b.-en plsoed
in ihe brotd piazza, and sennits were
placing chairs for the expected gue.ts,
while others wen- bringing on the de-
licacies of the H-a«jn. As soon as we
alighied, each of us wis V. to a ruom.

Reiuming io the piazz-, I wss introduce ; to the daughter -nd t«o nieces of

English and French, and enlivened us
with their chat at the table. After the
cloth had been removed ana the desert
disposed of, we lighted our .ignis.
The ladies retired to the "salon ;" and
one of them, seating herself at the
piano, played and sang, aasjtic i by the
other two. I enjoyed theii music
The one tt the pisnn played well, and
they all ihne knew how to sing. They

in adorning the Golden Gate park.
The money covers a multitude of sins,
aud this wicked sinner will be remembered for a day as a generous benefactor. The park commissioners witb
pompous notions in their heads decided
ou putting up a grand gate to commemorate the vanity of the millionaire;

thousand families starving in the
northern part of that state. No rain
had fallen in the district for fifteen
months, and the inhabitants have to go
thirty miles for a drink. Water has
disappeared from the face of the uarth
in that locality. It is quite possible
that the multitudes of human insects
uow employed in burrowing for coal,
boring for oil, cutting canals through
barriers placed by God between oceans,
and clearing tho earth's surface of forests, will ultimately produce a change
in the original law that governs this
planet and make it—a star. Without
forests the earth would be a wilderness.
By telegram from St. Louis we learn

Our special cable dispatch of Satur-
tifcy Ust puts a new phase on the diplomatic game in course of being played
by the great nations of Europe. Russia
is to be made to attack Bulgaria in order to place her in the worst possible
light for the rest of the world. Bulgaria
will be supported by Austria and Austria by England ; thus, the two sworn
enemies, Germany and France, will be
dermitted to engage when it suits them,
and they will be fairly matched. It
must have caused great disap|x>intment
to both France and Russia that they
could not embroil Germany in Bulgarian affairs and so divert a part of her
forces in that direction ; but, we presume the ruse was easily seen through
by Germany and her allies and the
present course adopted. We have always been under the impression that
the assumed carelessness of Germany as
to Russian proceedings in the Balkans
was simply a reply to the Czar's treatment of Prince Alexander. That the
Czar had some personal dislike of the
Prince is quite possible, but no one
with any comprehension of European
diplomacy believed for a moment that
the Czar would permit personal feelings
to carry him to the verge of war. The
simple fact is, that Russia insisted upon
the deposition of Alexander because he
was a German, hoping by that means
to draw Germany into a war with
France and Russia combined. Kngland, Germany, Austria and Italy appear to be playing their game with con-
sumate skill; they have placed Germany in such a position that an attack
upon her by either France or Russia
will be met in force and will be a serious affair for either power. If Russia
moves upon Bulgaria she will be faced
by all the Balkan States united, aided by
Turkey, she will have Austria-Hungary
on her flank, which would place her at
a great disadvantage How Russia
will wriggle out of the ugly position she
will now find herself, it is hard to say.
If she backs down she will be required
to withdraw her troops from Besserabia
and Armenia, or rather, she will be
asked to do so, because any such a
movement commanded by the Czar
would cost him his throne, and most
probably his life. Russia is in the unfortunate position of boxers who have
been successful with certain dodges and
feints, when they are found out and
their feints turned against themselves
they are almost helpless. The position
of Russia- at thi-T momeut, defied by the
little principality that she had created
for her own purposes, must be most
galling and humiliating, particularly as
the allies have lifted the screen and exposed to the world the miserable worn-
out Russian duplicity that had served
her so well for the last century. With
her feelings of exasperation she will rush
on madly to her fate, and the impression appears to be that war will begin
before the commencement of the next
month. The important question will
be, how she will begin the melee. Will
she cross the Danube directly in the
face of the fortresses now held by Bulgarian troops or will she, which is most
likely, hurl her legions on Roumania
and crush that little kingdom on her
way to Bulgaria, or will she make a
combined attack? There can be no
doubt of the bravery with which the
Bulgarians will resist the invasion of
Russia. They are in the first place,
fighting for freedom and then they will
be, also, defending their lives; for Russia
will far excel Turkey in her " Bulgarian
horrors " if she obtains the upper hand.
Gladstone made a great noise about the
brutalities of a few regiments of Bashi
Bazoulu in Bulgaria, because it pleased
his friend Russia and embarrascd Beaconsfield, who was then in power. It
will be foupd when the " horrors " are
multiplied tenfold by the Russians that
he will say nothing; such is political
humbug I The Roumeliots will doubtless rush to the front to help their compatriots engaged with Russia, and the
Turks will enter Roumelia and fortify
the Balkans; so that General Gorko
will not be able to repeat his adventure
of 1876. We note also that Russia's
great arm, the Cossacks, is to be rivalled by the Turkish levies of Bashi Ba-
<zouks and Circassians ; and, if discipline is enforced amongst these wild
horsemen, they will be more than a
match for the renowned Cossacks. Not
merely are the Turkish soldier—the
horseman—-fully equal to the Cossack
in rapidity of movement and endurance,
but he is opposed to the death to everything Russian. The terror of the Russian foot soldiers when pursued by
Turkish cavalry is pitiable to behold.
They throw away their arms and run
for their lives ;" and perhaps in this they
are not so much to be blamed for they
receive no mercy from the Bashi Ba-
rouks. It will be noted that the chief
actors in the impending war have everything at stake ; not merely honor, wealth
or territory, but absolute existence, so
that it will be a long and bloody struggle in which every power will strain its
utmost fc-r *^ory. Xo mercy will be
shown and the most destructive appliances of war will ruthlessly, be made
use of.
k is pretty generally understood ihat
not more than two members of the late
Government will be taken into the next,
and with some persons, who should be
well informed, the impression is very
rtrong that not a single member of the
late (Smithe-Robson) Government will
be permitted to enter the new one. It
would appear that some such feeling is
uppermost in the minds of Messrs.
Smithe, Robson &. Co., who are jier-
fectly aware that the dignity pertaining
to a member ol the Government will be
lost to them forever, and the chance of
securing an easy living «ill depart along
with it. It is hardly necessary to say,
that the howling curs who smell the
meat in the Government larder, are
pouring out anathemas on the creatures
who are "holding the fort," and who
will hf>ld it to th» very last moment
People in other countries who are accustomed to be governed by gentlemen,
will read the above with astonishment;
they will be puzzled to understand the
kind of men who are elected by the
people of this Pro\ ince to govern them ;
they would as soon contract a very annoying skin disease from some unclean
neighbor, as to vote for such men. The
problem which is now engaging the attention of the newly elected members,
is, wbo will be the next ministers ? If
Messrs. Robson and Smithe could buy
themselves into power, they would do
so, and it is strongly suspected that well
paid offices and lands, arc- being
dangled before the eyes of some of the
members. We are quite aware that
anything in the shape of principle or
honor—even common decency—will
not form any obstacles to the miserable
trafficing (or power. There arc members who enter the Local House labeled
"for sale"; and who will sooner or
later find purchasers ; but, we trust, the
number of these pestiferous animals, is
small, and that they will year by year
diminish as we advance in population,
and acquire the material for members
of our Legislature. The tone of the
new House is a little higher than the
last one, and although some of the old
members whose transactions, with
Smithe, Robson & Co. were of the
most shady character are again returned
we suspect that they will not be permitted to flaunt the prostitution of their
votes in open day. as they did during
the Smithe-Robson regime. We are
prepared to admit that we are a new
community composed of all kinds of
material, thrown together from all the
ends of the earth, and not very fastidious as to ways and means. But there
are some depths of meanness to which
most men object to descend, and we
hope for the sake of this Province, that
the exceptions are few. Hence, we
look for a great change in our ministry
because the members of the new House
will never permit men like Smithe or
Robson to hold office. To act with
such men would be to become particeps
criminis in jobs like that of Kootenay,
the Settlement Bill, the Coal Harbor-
English Bay steal and other transactions of that ilk. Tbe gain on such
jobs, if successfully carried out, is no
doubt large, but if they are pursued by
ill-luck like the schemes with which
honest John was connected, they can be
productive of nothing but misfortune
for every one connected with them.
Look for instance at the " Vancouver "
abortion, that is going to bring disgrace
and ruin on all butthe chief promoters,
who will fill their pockets—pretending
the while to be impoverished—and
adopting the most unscrupulous modes
of preserving their own worthless persons, will leave their weak-minded victims to sink in the mire. The right of
the Local Government 10 give the land
at English Bay to the C. P. R. Syndicate, is still to be settled, and, so far as
we can learn from the very best authorities, such right did not exist. But
should the title of the Syndicate be confirmed, by any possible means, which,
we believe, will not be the case, they
would never feel inclined to carry out
their engagement with the Local Government, because the glamour which
induced many persons to purchase at
English Bay and Coal Harbor, is pretty
well dissipated, and enough could not
be realized by the Syndicate to make it
worth their while to risk their reputation
and honesty.

The Victoria 7unei of Tuesday laat, has
the following from a correspondent in thia
city (New Westmuister) i
era. va. majok am, majok vs. t. r. a.
These case* have been the ocouiou in thu
city of * very clever cartoon, entitled
"Honest Johns Puppet Show." It represents two boys, Harry and Cl-trUe, pUying
at see-saw on a plank called tbe " Extension- " The lads seem to be in a high state
of excitement, Charlie haa lost his hat, hi*
eyes stick out and hia hair stands on eud.
Near by it Honest John himself shouting
"Go it, boyt! Whoop her up ! You'll loon
draw a crowd." In the background there
is about a dozen well-known personage.,
marked " Miscreants. The stoutest of
them is represented ss saying, " Harry tried
to play that with me once, but I waa too
h*»vy for him. I sent bun up ao quick he
fell off tnd almost broke his neck.'' There
it alto in the picture what looka lika a fence
—or rather a wall on which a gallinaceous
biped, a " Winnipeg rooster " is crowing,
whil* "Joe," one of th* ■•Miscreants," la
swinging hit bat and calling out "Shoot
that bird !" On the other aide of the fence
it a tre* with an overhanging " branch," ou
which ia parched a troop of monkeys, whose
comical feature* bear a strong resemblance
to tbe phyiioguoiiiies of our Mayor and
Council. Each monkey ha* a string tied to
iU neck, th* end of which H. J. holds in his
left hand .- and they appear to be cutting ali
kind* of caper* tt hu bidding. Attached to
th* "branch" it a rope, the "Columbian,"
which paaaea down under the fence. At
the other end, on the outside, a number of
saintly looking individuals, "The Family
Compact," and tbey ar* pulling for dear
life. Conspicuous among these and acting
aa a leader is the sub-editor of tbe Columbian,
yelling. " Heave ho ! Down with her !
Vancouver or bust I" There are two other
persons repretented, a Scotchman and a
cute-looking Irishman. The latter looka up
with one eye thut and remark. " Holy St.
Patrick I if them divila get that limb down,
you're a gone duck I" The whole thing it
ludicrous in the extreme. It will probably
appear in Grtp, witb an explanation of it*
The recant evants in Bulgaria, the interview* at Gaatein and Franzensbad, th* ton*
of the German press, and the late unexpected appointment of M. Herbette aa Ambassador at Berlin, have once more attracted
the auction of Europe to the rel-tions between France and Germany. Since 1871,
and espeoially tince 1876-that ia to aay,
ever tince the military reorganization of our
country has been actively pursued, and our
army tested by elaborate manoeuvres under
the eyet of foreign officers—it has been understood at Berlin how uncertain aud arduous a new war would lie. Our fortresses,
armaments, monitions, effective forces, can
uo longer be compared with those of 1870.
It has,  therefore,  been  Prince Bismarck's
firimary object to isolate ui in Europe, and
oad ut into fruitless adventures abroad.
But the reaction which has net in againat the
tht Colonial policy, the constant manifestations of pubbc opinion hostile to this scattering of our military forces, undertaken by
the government of M. Jules Ferry, have
made it clear France would no longer be the
dupe of the machinations antl intrigues of
the Chancellor. The attacks against us, interrupted for tome mouths, have heen resumed, France, reserved but strong, neglecting nothing to perfect her system of defence, has been accused of wishing war. It
is weil known at Berlin that these accusation arc purely fanciful, and tliat the French
Government will never assume tbe initiative
iu breaking the peace ; but it is equally certain she will never abandon the dearest of
her hopes, and will await in patience till the
inevitable hour for the revision of the Troaty
of Frankfort arrives, which robbed her of her
provinces and inflicted permanent ruin on'
nor industries. On her side, Germany evidently cannot provoke a war without a motive ; nor does she cither with to enter on
the struggle under tuch different conditicna
to those existing in 1870. Prince Bismarck
has always refused to rp^eld to the warlike
impetuosity of the Staff: ho feart, indeed,
nothing io much aa risking in au adventure
of which noon* can foresee the end the work
he haa bo painfully accomplished. He, above
all, dreads, and has ondeavored to prevent,
a conciliation between the Government at
Parit and that at St. Petersburg. Moreover,
he haa not hesitated to sacrifice the interests
of hia Austrian ally and to make every concession which Russia demands. He has
thus removed, or rather deferred, the
danger ; bis policy, however, it none the
lett compromised. Iu the vexatiou which
the conduct of Germany with regard to
Rusiia haa caused them, the English papers
do not fail to remark that the forced abdication of Prince Alexander has beeu a check
for the Chancellor. Tlie Paria correspondent
of the Timet tays Prince Biimarck dooi not
detire war with France, because he has a
vague fear of the strength of the Republic,
and he is uot certain of the issue of the
struggle. "He believet in tha superiority
of the Fl.'nch Artillery and in the improvements introduced in the Cavalry." This is
indirect homage rendered to ihe might of
Franco, isolated though she be, but formidable. Now that Germany no longer fears a
conflict with Russia, will she seek to obtain
to our detriment a compensation for the
concessions wnich she has just mode the
Czar'. Has she received carte blanche, aa
the Timet affirms, to endeavor to crush us ?
These are the questions at present exercising public opinion in England. Such ii the
reassuring future which the selfishness of
the Powers prepared fur Europe in 1871,
alien they permitted the dismemberment of
F.-anc*. —L Evene/nent.

persons in Australia, he refers to the addresses of these colonist* a* "a new proof of
the wise and liberal .entiments towards the
people of Ireland, and the true interests of
the Britith Empire, by yonr (hit correspondent'!) fellow citizens in the colonies, ai mil

James Murphy, the murderer of Police

on Wednesday afternoon, September 15th,
from the hands of three experienced police-
officers under circumstances of great daring.
Since the murder, on the 31st of July last,
no tangible trace of the murderer had been
found until Wednesday afternoon, when
Superintendent Kane, Detective-Inspector
Ramsdeu, and Inspector Stanifiefd, of
Leeds, made a domiciliary visit to the houae
of the murderer's sister-in-law at Barough, a
village two and a half miles from Barnsley.
They entered the house, and while two of
them talked to the sister-in-law, Rauisden
went upstairs. As he opened the bedroom
door the murderer jumped through the window into the garden below. Murphy then
turned round and pointed a guu at Rams-
den. The detective drew back for an iu-
stant, and Murphy, who was shoeless,
bounded away across the fields and disappeared. The police, with two bloodhounds,
were speedily on his track, but up to a late
hour the murderer was still at large. Mm

Then them wu *n uproar.     All tha girl*
Sot up and shrieked and ftarted for th*
resting room, but in a mlnot* two dull
thuds showed that two other girls b*d
fainted. Then tbe uproar increased. No
more girls tainted but there waa a raw to
who oould get hyrteriu quickest, and
girl No. 20 won. The rut nf tb* girli tied
for tecond and third placet. Two little girl*,
who wore too young either to feint or ta, have
hysteric*, ran down ta tba store. R. L.
Henry wu in the store with Jacob Hindi, a
Imy of 10. The little girl* (aid tlmulttne-
outly i " Oh, they hav* got them awful tstd
up atain !" tnd then they stopped with their
mouths open aud watched what Mr. Henry
would do. He ran up atain. At the door
all the girls wbo could atend up surrounded
Mr. Henry and cried in concert i " I want
to go home. LoU of the girl* ara dud, and
I'm afraid I'll get them next."
Little Jacob II inch ran for Dr. E. B. J onu
of 50 Sands street, while Mr. Henry and the
workmen began to eort out th* injured. The
foreman was annoyed u he vu helping Mr.
Henry tn carry out the hysterical girl* from
the hall nnd dressing room, by tugs on his
coat tails, such aa a pumpkin seed glvu to

" I'm sick, I'm sick,' he cried. "Pleas*
can I go ?" and when h* was told that be

and straightened nut the girl* witb tome restoratives, and advised Mr. Hirech to dii

to go home, too. The men uid they would

A private letter received from Manitoba
states that the crops along the line of tho
Manitoba tnd Northwestern Railway have
been exceedingly good this year, perhaps the
but in the province. At Binscnrth- w hent
runs 40 bushels to the ncre, and oats over 70
bushels. The correspondent snya there is n
very good feeling among the farmers, nnd it
ia believed that next year they will nil go in
on a coutiderably larger scale than they
have iu the past, for raising both cereals
and cattle.
La Liljerte urges the Malagassy Government not to allow itself to.be infiuencod by
the counsels of the Methodist missionaries.
It says if M. DeVilliert, the French resident, thould be compelled to quit Tanauari-
vo in oonteiiuence of the non-acceptance i f
France's ultimatum several cruisers will be iu
readiness to blockade the ports of Madagascar. It also says that while there il no probability of a military expeditiou to the interior, the territory adjacent to the Bay of
Zuirzis will lie occupied hy the French.
Gen. Kaulban, the bearer of the Russian
ultimatum, will declare thnt the acceptance
ol the ultimatum will alone restore good illations between Bulgaria nnd Russia. It Is
expected that if the Bulgarian Government
docs not comply with Russia's demand Gen.
Kaulban will immediately return to St.
Petersburg. The atiertion is murle in political circlet that the Grand Sobrauje will elect
King Charlet of Koumania Prince of Bulgaria
in reward for 1-oumuuia'a recent friendly attitude. The election of Kiug Charlet will,
it it thought, lie agreeable to Servia, because
it will lie calculated to realise the formation
ofthe Balkan federation. It is further us
tertcd that if the Powers do uot accept King
Charles, Aleko Pasha, or one of the Orleans
Princes, or as a final resort, the Russian
General Tigui-tiefl, will bo propoted.
The North German Gazette (Prince Bismarck's organ) commenting on the attitude
of the Austrian press towards the Bulgarian
tituition, says : " We think that the Austrian press betray an extraordinary desire to
destroy the peace between Germany and
Auttria, the only two European nations
bound together by honorable alliance. The
articles in the Vienna aud Pesth papers will
not turn tbo Gerinau policy aside from its
course any more than did similar articles
Sublished in Germany and which have now
isappeared from the surface of politic* became by the existing treaties, Germany's
sympathy and interest hod dictated hor
present policy. It is fortunate for both nations that the existence of iitternuti mnl
treaties docs not depend upon newspaper
editors nor upou parliamentary disputants,
who iu their speeches ute all kinds of pretexts for moral exuperation.
