he Kurl. after some little hesitation,
J»VB his consent. The engagement of
lhe Ueverenil George Wellesley and the
Lady Anne Norioii wa-t announced to
the world, and in due lime the marriage
look place.
The I an I of Norwich was not a lich
man, and her dowry consisted of one
lliimsaud pounds only. This sum uas
spent in enlarging and improving the
dory; anil they settled down in one
of the prettiest homes in England.
Alas! their happiness wus short -lived
I, the sole oli'spiing of the union,

This turned loinllninmation ofthe lungs,
and in less than a fortnight her place

I can just l-euii'iiiber her. A small,
gentle, lovable lady, wiih a quiet, mtisi
r-al voice—that most, excellent thing in
woman —a soft tri-wl, and one of the
loveliest fices ever seen in this world.
She was wnvshipped by the village

than a VMI he was laid beside my
mother in the small churchyard of

iuto strange   hands,
I was taken to London, to mv uncle.
Henceforth his house became my home

My uncle WM ten years my fathers
senior. Hehad early shown remarkable
talents f 'I* finance, and entered the great
banking house of Marlow and Marlow.
The credit of tlie firm stood second
lo none in the oity, and eight years
after entering it, my uncle had become
a partner. Iniinediately after this, he
married Jane Marlow, only daughter of
the younger of the two brothers, |with
whom he had a large dowry : and thn
found himself launched, on all sides, on
tin- full tide of prosperity.
Mrs, Eustace Wellesley was a woman

pnssioiititi' love foi him made her,
one sense, a good wife. But she was
proud, ambitious ; in temper hasty and

Again the time went on. 1 went tn
Cambridge, and took honour, without
difficulty. I had iiir.e-rit.-tl my father's
talents, but not his delicate health I
waa strong, and a head taller than my
cousin. The world aaid 1 had inheriied
the good looks of both my parents, a
subject that troubled ine little, until -
but I must not anticipate.
John left Cambridge three years
More I did That i« tn say, when 1
went up he went down Thus we did
clash in nur college life As young men
we were sufficiently wise to agree to
diller, without coming to open warfare.
Vel 1 could see that he never liked nie:
might possibly only want iheopportu
nity some day to do nie an ill turn.
He left college without having dis
tinguished himaelf, but this wa-. from
want of application, not for lack of
talent. He might have made a name
in the world, but for his innaie in
dolence. I sometimes think hn may do
so still, should he ever go into Purlin
ment. But where was the necessity
for hard work and ull that, some argued,
when John Wellesly would lie one nf
the richest comiuuiii_;s in England?
My cousin had wn ruling passions
--his love of wealth, wliich led
him todo inconceivably mean and close
things; and a love of diamonds. Not
the littleness which desires to wear
theni about thn person : his mania was
to collect unset stones of the purest
water. A magnificent specimen was
sure to find a ctiitonier in hira, if he
i-i.uld spare lhe sum at the moment.
I mice asked him why he was so fond
of these stones Ile replied that he
did not. know. A some thing within
him attracted hini with th. fascination
of a basilisk. And, he added, so long
as he could att'ord to indulge his mania,
he thought it as sensible as going in for
racked china, or balloons, or any ether
•price that   men take up.
I left college. Possessing the required gifts for the profession, I decided
to become a barrister. 1 was a ready
speaker; had a powerful and singularly
retentive memory; was quick at seizing
the points of a case. Therefore I chose
the bar; and, with my uncle's full
sanction, entered myself at the Inner
I remember well a conversation 1 had

powers and energies the highest honours

"I am not afraid of that, sir," I
modestly put   in.
"1 was about to say so," returned
my uncle. "1 could almost have wished
a similar prospect for John. But his
lot will 'be different from yours. His
fortune is made: you have to moke
your own as I made mine. The buck
is fitted to ihe bind.11." My unci

The wish of the testator was perfectly
clear. In every sense the executor wus
morally, though not legally, bound to
carry it out. John availed himself nf
the Haw. He declared that he would
not pay the legacy. He had himself
come into a future of five hundred
'housand pounds, besides the magnificent
estate of Welh-sley Hall, 111 H-ft'oll:,

"You have never ceased lo repay

for he rarely allowed his feelings to be
seen. "But I was about to observe,

almost as my sou, I must not forget
that John is so in reality. Justice is

live to see it, I know what that will be.
But," he added, alluding to himself for
the first and last time in his life, 'I feel
that I have not many years before me.

had died almost at my entrance upon

commenced my public career. It was
my first great grief, I hod beeu too
young to realize the loss of my parents.
My uncle had been, in every sense of
the word, a father to me.

He offered me a compromise. He
would moke me a present of one thou
sand pounds, to keep me going, as he
termed it, until the briefs came in.
This J indignantly rejected. I would
nol take a tenth portion as a present of
that which was mine by right. It was
blow, undoubtedly. At the outset of
my career the money would have been
of the utmost ute to me. But I resolved to live it down. I left the house
in Portnian Square, took up my quarters
at my chambers in the Temple, resolved
to work hsril, and to succeed.
Though I left u.v cousin's house I
ditl not break with him. He was lav
ng his day. He had revenged
himself upon me for having
become an interloper iu his house.
All the world was liefore him to choose

would also come. And somehow I
never envied him his wealth, his po i-

One December .loir 11 and 1 were
invited to spend Christmas with the
larl of Norwich, The Eurl was now
an old uan of eighty. Three of his
daughter, hud married, three hud grown
into old maids: pleasant, genial women,
nevertheless,     with    traces   of    faded
beamy add disappointed hope in  their
laces. John, no doubt, had been invited on the chance of his falling in
love with one or othei of the two
:;iiiiiililroi"liii 1 then slaying iu lhe
house. He was one of the best mutches
in the kingdom, I simply because it
would have been too pointed to leave
me out.
We accepted the invitation. My
briefs as yet, were conspicuous by Iheir
absence. 1 had found no royal road 'o
success. 1 must bide my time, it was
hard lines, sometimes, after the lift! of
luxury I hail been used to. I now
spent on my dinners what once I had
spent, 1111 my gloves. But the wml 1
knew nothing about that; and I would
sooner huve turned clerk to an utiorney
than have borrowed of my cousin.
We went down together into Norfolk.
Erlsmere, my grandfather's place, was
ten miles from the station A carriage
aw.ited us with powdered coachmen
and footmen, and ull the outward
symbols of pomp and pride. Had I
been alone, although the Earl's grandson, I should probably have found a

grateful. Love of splendour was
never one r.f my besetting sins. All
this was intended for the tunler of
Wellesley, and the possessor of half u
Tin* glorious day was now drawing
to a dose. The sun was sinking westward The air was bright with frost.
Snow had fallen, and the brunches of
the trees were white witli crystals that
glittered in the suid ghl. All mi nre,

Inir-a-'. stepped briskly over the hard
road, exhilaration in the very sound of
theii sharp, echoing hoofs. The sparkling crystals on lhe hedges and trees
recalled to my mind John's mania. Ir
wus singular that he never wore
ornuinents of any sort beyond a signet
ring, and a locket to his watch chain
containing his mother's miniature.
"Do you still keep up your love for

Of the very lirst water," he replied.
I should   never dream of collecting
anv other.    Tln-y must be   worth   not
less than a hundred thousand  pounds."
1 think I realised in that moment,
as I had never yet done, the power of
wealth and its extent. That a man,
without moving n tnu-cle of his face, or
changing a shade inthe lone of his voice,
could thus speak of so large a sum, or
of such a collection.

A large party was assembled at
Erlsmeie for Christmas. Amongst
iheni were my two cousins, already
alluded to In a sufficiently lady-lik'e
way, they both set their caps furiously
at John Wellesley. They were very
pretty girls, but fast, much given to
flirting, and following the hounds, and
similar amusements. To me they were
politely indifferent, as to a poor relation who must yet be countenanced
for the family honor Tliey must
jaorry rich men, these girls. Love and
povetty were unknown quantities to
them, no more to be reconciled than
the poles. Spread their nets, however,
with all th- canning they possessed,
ihe succeeded never in landing iheir
Among the guests were a Mrs. anil
Miss Hayward. The mother was u
widow wiih a jointure of £1,200 a
year, and, us she termed it, consequent
poverty. She was an ambitious
woman, and her hopeH were centred
upon her only daughter. Ellen Hoy
ward was to repay all her nioili. r -
care and solicitude by n great marriage
She hnd had one offer already from the
Lord Kxtnoulh—a good nature,!, foolish
young f"!low, who hod not two ideas in
his head—nnd hid refused him. Mrs,
Hayward had well nigh died witl
grief, nnd her disappointment and
rage had really affected her health.
How shall I describe Ellen HaywanU
Perhaps in no better way than by say
ing she was the exact opposite to her
mother Prom the first moment 1 saw
her my heart «ent out to her. If
ever I married, 1 felt that that girl,
d she alone of nil lhe world, must be
ft'ife. And yet what right had I, a
briefless barrister, to be
wife, and marriage, and
things that are only given to the rich I
Love, however, is stronger than reason;
passion waits not upon sense. Ere
inuny days had elapsed 1 felt such love
for Ellen Hayward as I thought in my
strength uml new emotion few men
had ever experienced. But I was
proportional ely wretched and miserable
Love waits not upon reason, but honor
must Whar right had I to declare
my par-sion for this girl I To ask her
to wait, it might be for yeurs, whilst
briefs caine in and fame and weal li
were 111 tne "I I could not doit. Moreover, I fell, even if I succeeded in
gaining the daughter's affection—a
prize too great, it seemed, to be possible—I should stand no chance with
the mother,
There was something about Ellen
Hayward that strangely recalled iny
dim recollections of my moth. 1. She
was pale and gentle, and moved and
spoke with that quiet step and voice
that, for rue, has ever been one of
woman's greatest charms, imc was
sensitive to a degree; every passing
emotion w.is shadowed upon her face.
Lovely always, the flush of pleasure
would render her almost d.tz-lingly
beautiful. She was peculiarly animated
also, at times ; and, when she could
overcome a certain Innate shyness of
temperament, surprised one with ihe
brilliancy of her cultivated mind. Hei
chief accomplishment was music,
Nature had endowed her with a voice,
not particularly strong bill of inev-
pressible sweetness, and it had been
well cultivated. Music has ever been
a passion with me ; but no voice, no
playing had ever touched me and
thrilled me as that ol Ellen Hayward.
Her eyes were of an intense violet blue,
her hair was of a rich, pale brown ;
and she was somewhat above the middle
height ofa women.
As the days went on it became
apparent to everybody that Ellen Hayward had made a conquest of John
Wellesley. I, with the instinct of
jealousy, had seen it from the first. I
watched him struggle against a passion
that, if gratified, would compel hitn to
change the whole tenor of his life. I
saw that he finally yielded and gave
himself up to the inevitable. Ellen
Hayward should be the future mistress
of Wellesley Hall.

"Ornery" is the word used by those who

I'he ceremony ol turning the boys
loose, till the next meeting of the local
House, was fittingly concluded by a sort

flowed like "a free unbounded river."
The Lieut-Governor's speech was the
most sensible " valedictory" that we
have seen for a long time. As a matter of course, it praised the House,
lauded their acts, and to a certain extent, endorsed their policy ; but, it was
short and sweet, as if intended to curtail as far as possible, an inevitable ordeal. His Honor can nol be held responsible for the errors or shortcomings
of his ministers before his acceptance
of the Lieut.-Governorship, nor can he
be sup|>osed, even, to have thoroughly
examined the character of the legislation
during the present session ; there may
be much to condemn, bui time alone
can unveil the true inwardness of many
of the bills passed during the session
just closed. Kor lhe most part, the
session was occupied in tinkering acts
passed by the present ministry during
the previous parliament, in which they
distinguished themselves by a display
of their helpless incapacity. 'Their assumption of leadership arose from a
combination of vanity, the love of
power, and (jossible profit. Had there
been any ability or experience amongst
the members, we have no doubt the
ministers would gladly have availed
themselves of such essential advantages;
but, there was none ; on the contrary,
there was a lack of principle and honesty, which could only result in corruption. We are perfectly aware that we
aie c\|uis -ii to all the difficulties of a
new country ; to the absence of cultivated intelligence amongst the men sent
to Parliament, owing to the lack of education, patriotism and public opinion
amongst the electors. If Bill, Jack or
'Tom, is popular amongst the electors,
they send him to Parliament, be he
saint or sinner, and as the latter are in
the majority, we cannot be surprised
that they form the majority in the
House The worst part of the matter
exists, not so much in the low standard
of morality, as in the absence of that
sense of fair play and res*iect for social
observances. 'I'he most uneducated
men will often be found the greatest
sticklers for propriety of language, until
constant association with those who delight in vulgarity, corrupts them. If
any persons in a high position should
be beyond reproach   in such matters, il
must ot necessity be the ministers of a
government, no matter how insignificant
the state may be that they govern. In
sustaining an elevated tone of expression, they retain the respect ol the
House, they show an example which
will in time be followed by the most uncultured member of the Assembly, and
they hold by such strict observance of
parliamentary rules, a power over less
favored individuals, that helps very
much in the management of members.
But, when uneducated men listen to an
oration, such as that belched forth upon
the astonished Assembly, during the recent session, by the Provincial Secretary,
in reply to statements touching his mode
of canvass for election, there can be
only one conclusion amongst them, that
the men who pretend to lead them are
certainly no better than themselves, and
wholly unfit for the position of leaders.
It the evil rested at 'this point, il would
be bad enough, but it is much more far
reaching. Men who do not give themselves the trouble to analyse character,
associate bad language with defective
morals and no subsequent improvement
in diction, will remove this impression.
'They pofclbly never heard of the Spanish proverb which suggests a basis for
judgment of a man by his associates,
but, they at once adopt the principle
and rate the remainder of the ministry
at the estimate formed of their colleague. We are net, at this moment
treating of the characteristics of John
Robson, we only wish to show that his
continuance in the ministry will burden
them with an amount of odium which
will become more and more oppressive
till he has brought about their expulsion. That the acts of the recent session show many sins of commission,
goes without saying, but of this we shall
treat more fully in reviewing the work of
the session ; the sins of omission are
none the less serious, and how or why
the House ixjrmitted ministers to get
away without proper explanations, is
impossible to conceive. There was for
instance, the Kootenay Job ; did the
House ascertain what the company has
done or is going to do, in the matter ?
have the Government adopted such
precautions as will enable them to
rescind the grant of land and forfeit the
deposit in their hands ? Or, will some
neglect brought about possibly, by design, entitle the company to defy the
Government, for some time longer?
Has anything been done in the matter
of the railway belt ? have our valued
ministers repaired the blunder made in
the Settlement  Bill?     How are the
minerals to be appropi iated ? do they
belong to the Dominion or this Province? What are the Government
doing about the six thousand acres at
English Bay handed over, illegally, to
Smith and Angus? Does it never occur to some of our readers that an attempt will be made to condone the
breaches of contract on the part of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company and
that they will be allowed to escape the
penalty ? Mr. Robson might have enlightened the House, since he appears
to be in correspondence with his friend
Mr, VanHorne. One fact is very clear
that the ministers have escaped this session, in a most unaccountable manner,
and they have every reason to congratulate themselves.

There seems to lie a determination
on the parts of all European Governments to ignore the |iossibility of war,
and as far as may be the attention of
the people is drawn from it. 'This no
doubt is a very prudent course, Iiecause,
if the people acquired a taste for war it
would be difficult for the governments
to restrain them when it was deemed
prudent to proless a |>eace |>olicy.
Nevertheless armaments in every form
are proceeding as if war was inevitable,
and under these circumstances, we are
compelled to adopt that idea. When
and where hostilities will commence it
is impossible to say; whether Russia
will await the results of her intrigues in
Afghanistan, in the hope of forcing
England to send large bodies of troops
to that country, or try her fortunes in
the Balkans seems to be the question of
the hour. 'There can be little doubt
about the intention of the Bulgarians to
invite Prince Alexander to return to the
throne of Bulgaria in the event of an
attack by Russia ; but he will not be
permitted to accept such an invitation
till some overt act takes place. 'The
feeling of hatred for the Russians is increasing throughout the Balkan states;
they are now estimated at their proi>er
value and a determined stand will be
made if they attempt an invasion. It
is hardly necessary to say that the reports of the massing of troops by Russia
in Besserabia and Armenia are flatly contradicted by the official papers of St.
Petersburg, but such reports are reiterated from various quarters and must
have some foundation. 'I'he Russian
fleet has been concentrated in the Black
Sea and some cruisers have been sent
to look after the sealing grounds about
Behring Straits which might be handy
for a visit to Vancouver Island. Meantime Nihilism is made a screen l-ehind
which all these preparations are being
made. That Nihilism exists there can
be no doubt, but we believe that its importance and acts are made the most of
to divert the attention of the outer
world, as the Irish question is used in
England. France does not appear to
have anything with which to conceal
her war preparations, which are going
on steadily; as one of her ministers remarked "France is not yet ready,"
and this is really the, fact. She is at
this moment using her best efforts to
make the country safe from invasion, a
task which she ought to have accomplished long ago. When all this is
effected, her hands will be free to move
in any direction as policy or profit may
dictate. She has now a most formidable navy and will make herself felt in
which ever direction she may think the
most effective. We observe that the
Chinese are moving quietly to foil Russia at several threatened |ioints. 'The
king of Corea has requested to be relieved of his kingship, probably by request from Pekin, and that a lieut.-governor of the principality be appointed.
This will be in conformity with the
agreement between China and F.ngland,
that in consideration of the latter retir
ing from Port Hamilton, the former
would protect the island from invasion
by any other power. China is also
sending troops to Kashgar and Kuldja
and 10 the frontiers of Tonquin. All
these will be useful some day if Russia
tries any adventures in the east. It
will be noted that the Bulgarians have
not been idle with respect to forming a
barrier to Russian invasion should such
be attempted. A treaty of alliance offensive and defensive has been formed
with Servia and there is very little
doubt a similar alliance will be formed
with Roumania. The German-Austria-
Italian alliance is simply a continuation
of the chain now drawn across Europe,
to bar the Russian advance. Thus
hemmed in, Russia can only enter
Europe by breaking the chain, and
turning upon herself the whole of the
powers that form it. 'This will very
probably cause the Czar to turn his attention to Afghanistan, where, should
he attempt to do anything more than
fan the flames of rebellion—that is,
should he send a large Russian force to
enter Afghanistan—he will bring about
his own destruction by inviting defeat.
We can imagine his desire to isolate the
British possessions trom  Persia, which

\\ e decided to go by water to tbe Harveat
Thaiikegivinu aervices, la-ing held at a
village named Corraw. This place is in the
Macleans county nt which clau it l, re)aU-d
tliat, when one of them die,, tbe clattering
of, horse's hoofs is heard, ut steed with
headless rider galh.ps past the defunct's
rtoor, immediately death occurs.
It is » bright morning, with t very slight
breeze blowing; aod the stillness of the
town is in harmony with the ssnetity of the
day, whicli i> Sunday.
Several people had taken advantage of the
opportunity of enjoying the delightful
breeze, iu preference to driving, and we
found a rather uncomfortable party aboard,
as we dropped away from the moorings, in
"ur trip little y»cht tbe t'leetwing.
Chpper-bowed, and of got.il speed as she
proved in many well contested rsce«, we
never imagined tho wu destined to take
part in such s paradoxical race, as she did on
this occasion.
A slight sen waa uu aa we boarded her for
tbe return trip; and to allay the fcais of the
lull.-, as to their safety, and avert the
chances ot aeuickuess aa much as possible,
we decided to keep the lee shore, on the
homeward run.
As we cleared ths shelter along side the
pier, and hut got fairly on our way with all
sheets out. we were surprised to see a tremendous whale of the sperm kind making
strsight for us from tbe wuulwaid stern.
Hetteat was impossible, bad we desired
it. and the only alternative wat to race
Me an w I, lie the ladies got up a panic and
made tlui echoes aound again, aud when
orders waa given to let out sheet, a little
and throw the yacht more to the wind, it
was almost impossible to get tt the ropet.
As we lay away to the centre of the channel
the whale continued its cuurse to the lee
Now began one of the most exciting races
ever wasseeu, and which 1 shall ever remem-
lier. The ladies, one after another, emerged
in.in under the bulwarks and hows (the
yacht being oue-half covered) after the rirst
alarm had passed, and they were assured the
whale would not run against us, and took a
lively Interest iu the contest.
Whether ladies have anything in cumin,>n
with ostriches, I leave them to say: that tbey
have a love for their feathers is patent, it
must have heen a recollection of some work
on the habits of this interesting bird that occurred tn them just then, that made them
duck their heads iotu the lockers, as some of
them did, thinking in this way tu escape the
impending danger.
We had lieen confident of out running the
mounter from the first, but we had little idea
of its propelling powers ; uow along side of
us, then, with a tremendous noise it shot
ale-ad of us, as if defying us to pass it; now
again, as if tn vary the monotony of the
ciintinued race, it spurted large quantities of
water into the sir, appearing aa if a power-
ii,I fountsin were at play.
The delight of those oo hoard was un-
Ixiunded, hut ou the least appearance of its
coming closer, or turuing towards us, the
old alarm prevailed.
This fear that it might be hut playing us,
ss a cat does with a mouse before giving it
the grand coup—kept us nn the continual
watch, but nothing took place to alarm us
during the whole run, aud new we were
within a mile of home.
It was tt this time suggested that we
ahould cut right across for the opposite
shore, but this course was objected to hy
some, as it wnuld expnse ua to a charge from
the whale should we go any distance from
it. Apparently the safest way would he to
run into some sandbanks named the 'Long
Hank.,' the channel- through which wu
knew, antl where we tiuped to strand it, as
the tide was ebbing, ami once ou tlie hanks
the mouster would be helpless. From this
state of argument aud -unpen.c, we were
released by the ivhab)--as if to put a grand
Iin,ih- to llie exciting event—rushing thrnugh
the water at a terrific speed, ruse in the air
tu the height uf mime thirty or forty feet,
exposiug its enoi-tnnus body snd dissppear-
ing again iu the depths of tbe water.
The next we saw of it after it wont down
waa i minding the Island at a considerable
distance fiom where we lay moored to the
We were all thankful to get ashore again,
a., however pleasant the sail, however exciting the race which we had juat run, we
were glad to have got away from our dangerous and unique adversary. At the time nf its
raising nut of the water, it was observed bv
many people and was said to be sixty feet iu
length. Our party substantistsd this aud
we had an excellent opportunity of judging,
tiaving mu a distance of eight miles side by
side with it.

The ine.Hues of the royal families of
Kurope amount to close upon thirteen
million, sterling a yeai, lierinany stands at
the head of all European nations in the
matter of royal income.. Thtt empire, with
a population of more than forty-five millions
supports twenty-two royal, princely, and
ducal families, and the direct coat ot their
maintenance ia £3,300,000. In Prussia aud
several uf tbe otlier lleimau States the
reigning family, besides its public income,
po.srsses very large private estates, and, indeed, in some of the States, the princes are
the chief laudowuera. In Mecklenburg
StreliU, for instance, the reigning family
owns thrse fifths of the land, and the t .rami
Duke governs without the aid uf any representative institutions whatever. Turkey
comet next to Germany in its royal ex
pe mil ture, the total amount absorbed by the
Sultan and hit family being about £3,200,-
000. The imperial family of Russia costs
that country £2,460,000, tha greater part of
wbioh comes in the shspe of rents from the
crown domains, which consist of more than
a million square milts of land, lietides gold
and silver mines. Tbe Austrian imperial
family is tolerably well off, having a revenue
of £»20.000, all of which comes directly from
the public revenue of the country. The
British roysl family conies next, with a cost
to the country of about £900,000. The sum
includes the revenue derived Irom the
Duchies of Laucatter and Cornwall, which
amnunts to £111,000. The old Duchess of
Cambridge, nnw eighty eight yearB of ago,
continual to draw from the Britiih Treasury
£11,000 a year besidoi enjoying the royal
palacee of St. .fames Bud Kew aa her residences. Italy payt her royal family £«50,-
000, which is a very large sum in proportion
to the means of the country, while Spain
disburses on the same account £400,000.
This endt the list of Kuiopesu monarchies of
large pupulatinn. But the minor monarchies
also pay their royal families very Urge sums.
Belgium pays £133,800 a year to her king,
and Fortugal, with three-quarters o: a
„,illi..n less puuulation, pays £1'..PJ>*0
Montrchy costs Sweden anil Norway £lli,-
500 annually : Denmark, £62,000 ; Holland,
£63,000 ; Roumania, £40,800 ; and Greece,
£42,000. But £12,000 of this last sum is
paid byHngland, France, aod Russia. Republican France givee ber president £•»,-
000, two-thirds of which is in the form ol
salary, and one third for household expanses.
The .twin Republic payt iu president £800
» year, which it probably the tmallett sum
thst the head of any civilieed nation in the
world reoeives. All the expenditures of
Switzerland are on a correspondingly low
scale The expenditure of the Confederation
does not reach £2,000,000 anuaally.-PuNi'*

The promoter, of the Inter-tate Commerce
Bill, lately passed by the Cougreas of the
Luited states, may not have divined that
its ill effects would fall with telling empha
sis ou the commerce of Canada as well as
the commerce of their own country. They
could scarcely have foreseen that a law that
was intended to equalize and justify railway
rates within their owu borders would lie so
widespread iu its workings as to place a
grievous burthen on the backs of their neigh-
hors, snd place within the reach of a huge
Canadian railway corporation tlie power to
aeverely menace the business of American
lines, and grind the faces of thoae unfortu-
nste persons wbo come within the radius of
their influence. Yet such ia the fsct. The
Canadian Pacific rates have sympathetically
responded to the rise on tho American line..
The policy of the American lines uf railway
that terminate on the Pacific Coast was to
build up terminal points by charging as high
a rate for eastern freight destined for inter-
mediste points as though tho freight were
carried to the terminus of the road aud hack
again to the poiut of destination. Thi. policy
compelled tho tuterior merchant to make
his put chin,-., of .-astern goods at Sau Frau
citco or Purtland, and the railway company,
whicli had first hauled the goods to the ter-
initial place, put the interior merchant's
door, wore theu employed to haul them
hack again. With the morality of thi. ar-
ri.ugement we do not propose now to deal.
It it mflicieiit to know that the uew act has
forced the railway companies to abandon
that policy aud charge a uniform rate.
Under the uew law there must be no discrimination. Freight for the interior must
lie conveyed at the time rate per mile as
Ireight destined for tho terminal points.
But the American railway companies have
uot reduced rates fo intermediate places
while mote than doubling them to terminal
|wiots, ami as a most natural consequence,
a uuiversal outcry ia raised   against   the act
throughout the United States.    Tl Stott
of the enforcemeut of the law on such places
as I'.a tlaii.i and Sau Fraucisc.i will lei serious.
They ctnnot thip produce east by rail, nor
cm they receive certaiu classes of goods
from the eatt by the same medium. They
will, in most cases, ship iei Panama ur Cape
Horn, thus depriving the railway companies
uf much of the legitimate tiallic which they
engaged iu the past, while tha merchant
who resorts to shipping will lie subjected tn
seriuus loss aod inconvenience, because in
terest and time must theu liecume important faeturs when calculating the cost of
guuds imported or exported by waterways.
Unquestionably one effect of the inter
state commerce law will be to throw that
portion ofj the Oriental freight heretofore
rarrierl hy rail iuto the hands of the Cana
liau Pacific. Unfettered hy the law the
C. P. R. can underbid all compotitnra anil
still charge rates that will be highly re
muneretive. Unless the couimiasiouers ap-
pointed under the act ahould fly to their
relief and suspend the act (which they have
the power to do) neither the Centra! Pacific,
the Southern Pacific, nor the Northern Pa
cilia can cumpetc for the Chinese and Japanese trade, i'he Canadian Pacitic will cany
it all. In atiuther way the Canadian hue
will have a deoided advantage over its
Americau competitors. It can carry American and Kuropean merchandise destined, say
for Sau Francisco and Portland, at its own
figures, but at i ales far below those that can
be legally charged hy American companies.
The advantage ia so markodly iu favor of
the Canadians that one would almost fancy
that they had sent an ambaHsador tn Washington to intrigue fur the psssago of a law
which, whilo it has struck a deadly hlr.w at
tlie American railway system, haa benefited
the Canadian Pacific company and uo other
Taking advantage of the act aud the con
sequeut inability uf British Columbiana to
help themselves, the C. P. It. have suddenly
undo their rates on inter-provincial freight
almost prohibitive. Ou some classes nf
gooda the, advance is from 300 to 400 per
cent. The loss to the consumer from this
increase i. incalculable. Uoods of every
description have advauced in price, while
the iuterior producers muat either resort to
bull teams and river steamers or shut up
their establishment.. The rounlr.i/ eaiiiiut
itiitlistmul ii steain so Num. If the railway ia
to be a blessing to the country it must liot
combine to charge rates that are prohibitive
simply because the Americans have made a
huge blunder which they will probably cor-
reot at the first opportuuity. Some classes
of goods cauuot lie Bent nr received by rail
under tbe revised tariff. Said a merchant
receutly i ''It wili pay me tnahip Canadian
goods ut certaiu classes from Montreal tu
London ul- i.iveipnol and then tranship
them ,i(t the Hnrn tu Victoria rather than
meet the Canadian Pacific's rates." Said
another; "1 shall putronize the Punauia
and Southaiiiptuu steamers batnrt I 'will
submit to this oiitrageuiia impost on Knglish
good, that are required iu a hurry." A
third merchant after saying that he had
cancelled all his Muntreal and Winnipeg
orders, added that a ship would be put on
the berth ut Montreal tut- Victoria and
will be tilled in a very tew days,
Wa are strongly of opinion that the C.
P. It. have acted moat unwisely iu taking
advantage uf au errur ul uur neighbors'
The effect of high transcontinental rate,
might iu the end prove of benefit to lhe
country iu stimulating manufacture.| but a
long tiinc uiiist n"ci*asai-ily el ipse before rebel would be hid through audi means. Thr
comiiii-rcial uutlook is gloomy, and the disappointment consequent upnn the failure nf
the Canadian Pacilic Railway company lo
meet the bright anticipations l.u-iiieil of it
will lie very great.     I'iito,,-/ t 'ulu/iist.
Tlie demoralization in freight traffic ou
the regular overland trunk lines will probably result in an increase in the Canadian
Pacific business. Already Chicago merchants are shipping by the lakos aud Port
Arthur, over the Canadian Pacific to Pnrt
Moody, thence down the cnast to this city.
Port Arthur is 933 inllet Irom Montreal and
18(19 miles from Port Moody, the western
terminus of the Canadian Pacific. By
travelling by the lakes and the Canadian
Pacific uud the Pacific Ocean, from Chicago
to this city, tlie merchandise traverses about
3400 miles, while by the Union Pacifio route
here to Chicago, it is only 2300 miles.
Freight for whicli the Union Pacific would
charge $80 a ton, Could easily be landed here
liy the Canadian Pacific, over its longer
route, at HO a ton. The Union Pacific receutly made a new rate on furniture to Chicago, quoting it ut$27.1 a carload of 10,000
pounds. Tho Canadian I'aciflc could do the
same business for $200 a carload. The rates
oh coal oil arc nnw quoted at $2,4.1 per 100
inuiids La.t fall the Canadian Pacific
oronght coal oil here from the Kaat at 50
cents a hundred. The old rate on the Union
Pacilic for coal oil was $1,20 per 100, and
even if the Canadian Pacific raises to those
figuies it will still be a long way below the
U. P. and naturally would get considerable
business. The officials of the northern mad
say they will have a rate sheet out in s few
days, at soon as affairs are somewhat settled.
They soy their road has all the necessary
facibtiesfor any increased freight traffic.
They are unable to receive freight directly
overland from Chicago because the local
rates from Chicago to St. *> incent on the
border land are so high that they arc shut
oot.—S. F. Ckninirle.

One of the hardest blowi dealt the distinguished fagau was through ;v quotation
from one of his own lectures, "The con-
current judgment of mankind."' said the
(Jenoral, *'is that thoir belief iu Iiu.l i* the
foundation of all truth, and that a mau witl
uot call upon his Creator to bear witnews to

view of it. He "thanks Mother Nature
that she has planted cuuiigh ingenuity in
tlie brain of a child to throw up agaiu.it tho
violenceof a brutal parent the little breast-
wurk of ii lie."

A'-c-Ki-nds the following-story: -In Vidovee,
a (liuig.irian village near Warasdin, the belief Of all approaching war has sci/rd hold of
the entire population. A splendid fata
niirrtfana was nhacrved during three consecu
tivf* days on the wide plains around the
village. Knormons diviidmis of infantry,
with scarlet caps, could be distinctly seen
moving iu the plains and performing ever
ises to the word of command of a colossal
hief, whose sword was seen Hanhiiig In the
air. I'he pheiu menon lasted several hours,
and lie.illy the soldiers disappeared iu midair. The people stood awestruck in great
crowds, and observed every movement of
the phantom soldiers with hieathlcss attention. Two gendarmes afterwards went in
the direction of the ncene of action to iee if
any traces could be found, but of eoni'.e iu
vain. T(ie phenomenon is believed to have
been a reflection of some infantry divisions
mano-iivring at some miles1 distance.
Few officers charged with tho execution of
the law have bad to perform a more unpleasant duty than Uut which was recently

had been improperly seized; for tho fair
snake-charmer was able to prove that she
was uot responsible for the debt in respect
of which the seizure had beeu mule. Tlie
lady for whom she was mistaken was a
native of Mauritius, and the Oriental appearance of tho snake-charmer hadcoavioced
the creditor thut he had found his long-
sought debtor. The snakes were duly recovered ; but their owner had to undergo
thu humiliation of admitting, fnr the sake
of proving her identity, that she waa not
a native of any country where snake charming comes by nature, but a modest inhabitant ot the old world who had learnt her
trade from an acrobatic husband. —Puhlir

of money was wanted to make up the

during such a policy. Continuity was
wanted to keep the estimates on a level.

array against him ; how tacitly, however,
have they been induced to succumb, and
own that the unity of purpose evinced by
this great man, and the sudieiency of the
two remedies, have satisfaetoiity proved
the fallacy of the hypothesis that divers
maladies and varied features of disease re-
(juire as many distinct remedies- Again -
PrtifftMimal Prejudirr has lieen avowedly
overthrown from the glaring confession concurred in by all that these remedial agents
have accomplished what the combined
learning and talent of the faculty eould
never attain—I'mcrsal DiHSfnilntttioii. It
would be folly to calculate tbe proportionate
difference between the 0umber of applicants
for medical aid (in com mon parlance) at a
public dispensary- and the incalculable
multitude that are the daily recipients of j
Holloway's twin remedies as applic-ible to j
Mieir need in the vaiious phases of diseases.
We would simply ask tho reader (conceiving
it possible that he could accomplish the feat)
to take a Hying visit to onr numerous dependencies. Having first traversed India
and witnest-cd the universal popularity of
Holloway's Pills and Ointment tn that vast
and densely populated region, let bim bend
his Southern course, and crossing the equator, step suddenly into thejieare enthroned
patsensions of Australia, if he would ask what
is the gold digger's remedy for Internal and
external disease there, be would meet with
the. response, Holloway's Pills as.. Ointment; let him take a still more extended
stride, and touching on his flight, New
Zealand and the innumerable islands ofthe
Paclfie Ocean, step finally on the flourishing
soil of British North America, he will still
find theso medicines the alike adopted
