with one white muijid standing out in

^Otyment to John  R.   Tn'yTnr, wli ■ is '!i 'or linn thnt. lie lived while    the

Next to him was Captain Johnson
of the native infantrv, one of tho
keenest sportsmen on ourside of India,
whose exploits in pursui' of great gainn
were a constant topic of conversation
and admiration. To him no kind of
encounter with savage beasts eould
iiiiiie amiss, and, under equal condition,
nobody present could have Imped to
ride on more than equal terms with
him. But he bad only just returned
frouia distant sporting expedition, his
iwn   horses  had not   yet arrived, and
1 e had been obliged to place bis 6 feet
2 inches of bone and sinew on a
friend's horse, which certainly could
not carry him alongside the light
weights. There remained to add to
the field, Button, myself, and another
of our officers, all three determined to
be in at the death if possible ; but so
moderately provided with horse flesh
that we coull hardly expect to be
more than the reserve in the first
The sun   was rapidly   sinking   and
there was no  Mine to waste;   so all the
spectators fell back to about a hundred
yards from the cart   carrying the trap,
which remained black and   solitary in
the plain     We   took  up our position
in line   in   front   of  the  crowd, and
could   then see   that a long   rope was
fastened to the trap, by   pulling which
a bolt   would  be drawn,   and   the side
fuithest   from   us   opened.      One   of
Vussuf Ali s servants run  forward, at
a signal   from   his   master,   pulled the
rope,   and as  quickly bolted   back behind the shelter   ofthe spears.    I had
never seen a panther   enlarged before,
md had expected the  animal to bound
t'nrth at once, the   moment the way to
liberty   was   open.    Our    friend   did
limbing   of   the  kind,    however.     He
had been for two days in the  trap, and
was probably rather stiff, and certainly
cowed and sulky.  At last, after s,: eral
stones   had li.en   thrown at   the trap,
and had   rattled on   its wooden   sides,
we could just see a   long black-looking
body gliding from   the cart,  and drawing itself   sinuously along the   ground.
The native crowd set up a   shout, and
that and    the familiar   feeling of   the
ground   beneath  bis   feet   made   him
quicken bis pace.    The light   gleamed
on his yellow   sides,  he looked   round
liim to see the safest direction in which
to shape his   course, and   bounded towards the   jungle.     We   instinctively
drew our   reins tighter,   grasped   our
lioarspearsfirmer,   pressed our legs to
our horses' sides, and prepared for the
gallop.    The panther was   half cantering, liulf bounding towards the friendly
shelter   which    he had   marked,   and
rapidly   shaking,   oil' his   stillii-ss and
increasing his distance  from us.    We
all turned to   Yussuf.    who was a per
feet picture, as he   sat with    his spear
h- Id high in the air on his half-rearing
horse, whose   eyes Sparkled   with  the
same excitement as bis   master's.    The
panther   had   got between three and
four hundred yards'start, when Yussuf
shouted "Hide I"    We sat down to our
*oik, and tore in pursuit
As we expected Mackinnon and
Yussuf quickly shot ahead ; but the
stride of the Waler gave the latter the
advantage, and besides, be was rather
on 1 he right, the side to tard which the
panther was bending, nnd had thus less
ground to go over. Johnson was a
bad third ; but his co '1 and experienced
ye had marked the panther's prob
able line, and his fine horsemanship enabled bim to save every inch of ground,
and would probably bring him up at
he critical moment, The rest of us
eould only say that we had an excellent view of the chase, as we toiled
in rear.
Mackinnon, with his spear ready for
the thrust, was rapidly gaining on the
panther, who looked over his shoulder
and seemed to calculate whether he
could cover the half-mile wliich lay
between him and safety before the
tliundeiing hoof behind him should be
along-side All at once he stopped
in his gallop and crouched, almost
facing bis pursuer, with bristles erect
and flaring eyes. The Waler's heart
failed him when he found himself face
to face with the defiant beast. The
horse shied ft one side, crossed his
legs, and made a tremendous stumble
011 to his nose. Mackinnon, who had
been leaning forward with poised spear
was thrown on to his horse's ears.
The panther's spring was delivered, and
I feit my heart sink. Suddenly
could I believe ray eyes? I could have
sworn that there was no one on tba
plain a moment before —there was a
native at Mackinnon's horse's head,
whose ready hand on the bridle had
saved the Waler from falling
over you 1

guisb his face."
'•Any way he can't be far off, and he
is sure to come aud ask for backsheesh
for his services. He deserves something fur his pluck, at any rate, in
putting himself in our spotted friends
way." We looked round, but there
was nobody. The shouting crowd of
onlookers came up. and in the quickly
closing night and the ma.i: uf turbans,
red, blue, and white, that surrounded
us, further search was impossible. I
could not help feeling certain, however,
that I was right, though both Yussuf
and Johnson, who had beun nearer to
Mackinnon than I, assured ine they
saw nobody. The panther was padded
on one ofthe elephants. Lady Winkle
waved us a dignified adieu as she
changed the rocking howdah for her
easy rolling carriage, to return io the
Residency. We lighted our cigars,
and slowly rode homewards, the others
discussing every incident of the novel
sport while I silently pondered over
Mackinnon's escape, and tried to ex
plain iis circumstances satisfactorily to
Again   the   dull     and     depressing
routine of barrack life.    We had   got
through the worst of the hot weather ;
but the brazen sun by day and the hot
winds   by  night   still made   exertion
wearisome, anil sleep almost impossible.
We looked   eagerly forward to the re
turn from leave of some lucky  brother
officers, who   had been   bracing themselves in the bills, when some of us, at
least, would be able to   quit the swel
tering cantonment in   our turn.    The
happv day   came at last, and   Button
Mackinnon, and I   were told   that we
might be   olf for a month.    We were
all pretty well in spito of the long drilling we had gone through ;   and we de
cided that we wanted   change of scene
more than change of climate, and that
we would spend our time in the freshei
if not much   cooler   air of   the jungle,
and carry   out a   long-projected   campaign against some   tigers that wn had
beard of in a neighboring district.    We
had   been    in    communication    with
"shikarris" for some time, incase such
a chance should offer itself, bo we had
little to  do bui to   start orT our  tents
and servants, and arrange for relays of
horses to carry   us over the first   sixty
or seventy   miles   from   the   station,
when we should find   ourselves nearly
at our shooting ground,   and continue
the march with   our  camp,   which we
should then have overtaken.
Behold us at last in the saddle, at
one o'clock in the morning, or rather
in the middle of the starlight night.
Tho moon has sunk below the horizon,
but the Southern Gross has arisen and
illumines our way. The sentry on the
main guard challenges us as we pass,
and gives his parting benediction,
"Pass, friend, and all's well." We
clatter through the bazaar, disturbing
troops of pariah dogs fighting and
growling over the filthiest offal, and
push into the silent country. How
weird r,nil beautiful it all looks ! The
gnarled banyan-trees throw deep
.shadows hero and thero acrost the
road, and everything that was burned
and miserable looking under the sunlight is covered with a mystic charm
by tbe calm quiet night. On and still
on we press, past native temples,
whose ghastly image* look still more
ghastly than by day and glare stonily.
Through small hamlets, nearly riding
over the inhabitants, who are wooing
the cool air, and are lying asleep in the
ruadway, wrapped in their white
cloths. Past the Tapal runner, with
letter-bag on his back, jogging along
the road to the distant town. His
tinkling bell is the only sound that
breaks ihe silence, and we think of its
old name, "the tiger's dinner-bell," and
bow often, on that very road, the post-
runner had been missing, and a blood
stained letter bag had been found, the
only relic to mark where the man-
eating scourge of the country-side had
seized his prey. Past rocks and watercourses, over open cultivated country
and through jungle woodland, till we
arrived under the grim shadow of au
old fort perched on a rocky eminence,
where we found our first relay of
horses waiting, and felt that we had
covered twenty miles of our journey.
What a delicious and refreshing feel-
ing it is to drop into a cool saddle and
feel a fresh horse springing gaily
under you, after the experience of the
last five miles of a tired hack, keeping
him on his legs on a rough road, and
kicking him along to keep your time I

iluwn to get through Ih"   day, and. indeed,  bad small   difficulty iu doing so.
There were some old "charpoys" iu tb*

collapsed into sleep,   which   passed tin'
hottest   hours most saiiafactonly     Ai

by nine o'clock saw our camp irlcsming

It th snd   h light   supper    were   most
welcome, and    we turned in,   thinking
over   the   campaign    wbtah    we   were
about   to commence.    Tne jungle ait
felt fresh,    an ! the  jungle   wind comparatively   cool;   but every   lent door
was open wide, and curtains   rolled up,
to profit   by it as   much   as we   could.
Closely   tuck il round with   mosquito
net, I heani   the   insects   of the niglu
burling   themselves vainly   against tnv
couch,   and chuckle:!  drowsily at their
discomfiture.    1 lur followers  lay round
the camp-fire, and their snores   rose in
chorus wiih   die slow   chewing   of the
bullocks, the pawing of a   restless hors-
at lhe   picket-rope,   ant the uneartbl,
thtiek of the jackal prowling near
The camp was asiir with the fir-t
faint glimmer of dawn, an i when we
turned out among the already hit
loaded baggage carts, we found two
"shikarris" squatted on the ground
near our tent, waiting to give us their
repon on our chances of spurt. Closely
wrapped in their cloths to protect
them from the morning air, these
jungle aages were looking wiih contempt on the, to them, ilemgaioty
occupations of our domestic servants.
Our best hopes are realised when we
were told thai two tigers had been
haunting a piece of jungle alum: seven
miles distant, nnd that, if we wuuld
march on that dav to tne neighborhood,
they, the "shikarris," would arrange to
have buffaloes tied up during the

only must the people Of Bulgaria Ik assured ol |sjwerful help, but the Russians
must la- quite aware ol the fai I, and
must chafe al the thoughts of their im-
•xiteiue in relation lo a people with
nothing to .peak of in lhe sha|ie of an
army and without resource! ot any kind
to fall back U|kiii. It reminds us of a
hungry w-olf rendered almost frantic
with the appetising squeals ol a fat little
pig, lint fatty aware that the little relish
is put there to tem.it him and that there-
arc sportsmen Ix-hind it with death
dealing guns. There arc many reasons
which induce Russia to hesitate ; first,
the speech of Herr Tisza, which was
simply the warning of Germane and
Austria, given in a roundabout way
and second, the tpeedl of Lord Ran
dolph Churchill, which was as much
intended lor Russia as for the Irish
Land League. The miserable excuse
for a Government which existed under
Gladstone, is no more, and the English
people are beginning to feel something
of their old warlike spirit which would
never submit to the paltering ol Glad
stone. The visit of Lord Churchill to
Berlin and Vienna has also had its influence, showing that the real Kaiserbund is
com-iosed of Germany, Austria, England and Italy. Such a formidable
combination has not existed since the
alliance which destroyed Napoleon the
Great. We cannot then, be surprised,
that both Russia and Franco are reduced togrowling and that they will think
twice before engaging in a war which
may only end in their own destruction.
Nevertheless, preparations are going on
in all the countries likely to be engaged
in a struggle and immense sums arc
being expended in the remodelling of
great guns and small arms in order to
keep [race with the latest improvements
in death dealing appliances. There can
be only one conclusion to all this warlike frenzy ; some unlooked for circumstance will occur which will set all
Europe in a (lame ; when great armies
will be set in motion for the conflict
and navies will put to sea with the object of mutual destruction. It is very
evident that the best understanding exists between England and China as
evidenced by the treaty concluded last
July between the British Envoy O'Connor andtheTstmg-li-Yamen—theChinese
Cabinet. It is not merely the terms ot
the treaty, which are very favorable to
England in relation to Burmah, but the
fact of such a treaty being concluded
which clearly points to the very friendly
footing upon which the two empires
now stand. I'he Chinese appear to be
completely aroused as to the importance of the most rapid communications
between the capital and the frontiers.
In a very short time the Chinese will be
able to concentrate an immense body
of troops at any point on their frontiers,
in a space of time never hitherto
dreamed of by their most astute statesmen. Should England and Russia be
engaged in war it can be easily understood that China may desire to recover
some of the provinces of which she was
robbed by Russia and that it would not
be difficult to induce her to go further,
under the influence of her new martial
influence. She might also deem it advisable to re-annex Annam and Cambodia with Cochin China. Half a million of men out of her immense population, could be easily spared for such an
adventure and no commensurate resistance could be offered to her vast armies. The Russian intrigues in Affghan-
istan are likely to prove abortive. They
have caused a small uprising amongst
troublesome tribes that were always opposed to the rule of Abder Rahman.
The consequence, will be, that unsupported by Russian troops, which they
no doubt were led to expect, they will
be completely crushed by the Ameer,
who will be glad to seize such an opportunity of punishing these disobedient
subjects. It is clear from the enthusiasm with which the British boundary
commissioners were received at Cabul,
that the most cordial relations exist between the Indian Government and the
Ameer. From this we may be sure
that Russian intrigue backed with a
plentiful supply of gold have not had
their anticipated effect. If the Ameer
was to prove treacherous and throw in
his forces with those of Russia, the
British Government would have an expensive work before them to conquer
Affghanistap. There are some small
disturbances at the Cape fomented no

Om  s[k-< i.ii  telegram  oi  Saturday
last, conveys the intelligent e that the
Dominion elections .ire likely m Ik-
fixed tor Deecnber next.    This. how.
ever,   is   stoutly denied   by  persons  in
ihis l'rovinre, who pretend t" i special
knowledge of affairs in the eastern
provinces. We are not sufficiently
familial with party tactics in the east tu
decide as to the correctness ni either
conclusion, but it appears to us that the
Conservative party has nnw acquired
all the knowledge requisite to open the
campaign, and the elections might very
well be completed in time for the commencement ol the session al the end of
February or the beginning of March.
As tO the prospect! for the Conservatives, wc look iqion them as fairly good.
The local elections in Quebec, although
they turned out less favorable to the
Ross Government than that ministry
hoped, really resulted much less disastrously than was expected by people
not immediately interested ; the boasting ol the Grits and the howling of the
Rouges, had created the impression
abroad that the province would oust the
Conservatives to the last man. What
has really been the result ? 'That a few
constituencies have been lost to the
Ross ministry, b)- very narrow majorities, whereas the Conservatives where
returned, in many rases, were elected
by a vote of two to one. The inference
to be deduced from these facts is simply, that local influences had accomplished what reason and argument were
powerless to do, with certain small
communities, bul even such successes
on the part ofthe Rouges are not likely
to be repeated at the general election.
With respect to Nova Scotia a nearly
similar conclusion maysafely be counted
on, and the reasons for this are many.
'The very large decrease in the accustomed trade with the United States,
consequent on the abrogation of the
reciprocity treaty very naturally produced a strong feeling of antagonism
against something or somebody. The
Grits would fain hope that it was against
the Macdonald Government and the
National Policy, and a few demagogues
are convinced that it is against the Dominion in every respect, as they hope
by creating conlusion and discontent,
to fill their pockets from some source ;
they are not very particular which. We
feel quite sure that both of these parties
will be disappointed and the number of
supporterstoaConservative Covernment
will be far greater than at present supposed. In the first place it is very likely
that a new treaty will be so far advanced
as to completely change the present trade
difficulties with the United States ; that
accomplished, Grit influence and Yankee sympathising will be neutralized.
The truth is that Confederation has
greatly benefitted Nova Scotia, even in
the localities where recent depression
has been most severely felt, since the
abrogation of the treaty ; and although
a great deal of loud talk has been indulged in by people whose entire capital consists in a facility of saying unpleasant things of their neighbors, there
has been no depth of opposition to the
Dominion, beyond that produced by
trade depression and the usual desire to
laythe blame on the Government. With
a new treaty, a revulsion will take place
and a good Conservative majority will
be returned. We like to see a strong
government in power, because, if their
measures are good, it enables them to
appose lhe incorporation of clauses
which render such measures unworkable and nugatory. A weak government in temporising with the opposition, becomes a real misfortune to any
country. But we decidedly object to a
government with too large a majority ;
it makes them reckless from the knowledge that they can carry any measure,
no matter how objectionable, whenever
they please. The Conservative majority in the present House is far too large
and we believe it may be reduced with
advantage to the country, That the
Conservatives will have another lease of
power at the conclusion of the elections,
we have not the remotest doubt; the
Conservatives can alone govern the
country at present. The vast change
brought about by the completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, is not sufficiently realized to admit of the public
of the emoluments. To entrust the
affairs of the country to the Grits at this
t ritu a! juncture would be to invite confusion and disaster. Sir John A. Macdonald is alone capable of steering the
barque of state through the shoals and
tortuous channels that comprise her
, ourse tin the present. When there is
plenty of sea room the danger from bad
steering un the part of a new man at
the wheel, will not be so great, and if
the ship should be taken aback, there
will always be time to call the old hands
upon deck before much damage is done.
The , ountry generally feels that the
Conservatives must be sustained in
power, and they will Ik- sustained, in
spite of caery device on the part ofthe
Oppoahioa, It would, therefore, be sheer
suicide on our part to send any but an
out and out supporter of Sir John A.

Int,—] am instructed to acknowledge the

asking whether "if * charter were granted

In reply I am authorized by the Minister
of Railways and Csnals to *ay tbat in bis
opinion tho Government must, under existing aiiruigiriiitiilH, consider itself boil.id by
-he contract entered into with the Canadian
Pacilic Railway Company not to permit, at

At H o'clock on Monday morning Ah Susy,
sentenced to he hanged for the murder of a
fellow-countryman, left the condemned cell
in the new jail and proceeded to tho place of
execution, escorted by Ins father confessor,
the Rev. K. 11.mis, and his Goal-father, Mr.
afamoa McXsmara, the old guard in the
prison. Seven years ago the unfortunate
convict had some notion of becoming a
Roman I atholic, but—he baulked and did
not In arm to think of a future state until he
saw clearly thst the rope would terminate
his career in this world ; then he began to
tremble ; and hii Sunday last he was received
into the bosom of the Roman Catholic
Church. As he left the condemned cell he
seized the arm of his God-father and aaid :
"You will seo me off, papa?" And Mac
marched with him to the scaffold. Tbere
the Rev. Father Horris repeated the creed
of tho Christian, beginning with " I believe
in God.'' " I do, father," aaid the unfortunate man who was a deist three days ago ;
rand he repeated in audible tones every word
spoken by the priest. Then the hangman,
whose face was painted black, put the rope
round the convict's neck and touched tne
spring ; the unfortunate wretch went down
nnd wus suspended ; he struggled for some
time, and was strangled. The novice, who
wns engaged aa hangman, knew nothiug of
the trade, and instead of placing th* man
directly under that p«rt nf the rope which
crossed the boani, he placed him three teet
hoynnd the perpendicular line ; and, th*r«-
fore, in falling the laody described * semicircle and the neck was not broken. The
whole arrangement waa simply absurd, designed hy ignorance, or not designed at all.
After the unfortunate man left the condemned cell he had to go up stair*, then he
eroaaed the hall and went down ten steps to
the jail yard, where the gallows waa erected;
and there he had to go up twenty steps to
be hanged. The floor of the condemned cell
al,ould be mi a level with the scaffold to give
the wretch a chance of moving without ao
offort to the place of execution. However,
the convict went up, and down, and up
again, displaying wonderful firmness of
mind tn the laat, and died looking lilts* a
soldier, calm, thoughtful and resolute.—

A conferenco of Tories was held at Bradford. There were 800 delegates present.
The conference adopted imperial federation
as an article of the Conservative faith.
Lord Randolph Churchill, sneaking to a
motion proposing the approval of Lord Bea-
consfielu s Eastern policy, said the Government would follow that policy as closely aa
the changed conditions of Kuropean affairs
would allow. A resolution was adopted expressing confidence that the Government
would follow Lord Beaconsfleld's policy and
would vigillantly guard British interests
againat Russian agression, and especially
prevent any seizure of Constantinople.
At AuxerreZephyriu, Pamphileand Etuile
Gatlet, the father, uncle and brother of
Marie Gallet, a young heiress, were tried
for breakiug into a convent and taking therefrom sister Marie, who had voluntarily entered and declared her purpose to take the
veil. Marie Gallet testified that she had
long intended to take the veil, but had
never told her father, and when her family
tried to carry bar off she had begged to have
the police brought that they might be ejected from the convent. The prisoners were
found guilty with extenuating circumstances. The father was fined 25 francs, the
uncle 100 franca and tho brother 16 franca.
The result waa hailed with cheers and
groans. Mile. Gallet still vows she will be
a nun.

trian .Slavs in a word, .ill the -.uhjects of
Fraiici.i Joseph SfS agr-cd i and the first un
equivocal attempt of Kalnnky to thwart
their determination to give Austria an outlet on the .'lr.ge.iii would cause his immediate
removal from office. He would probably be
succeeded by the present imperial Miniater of
Finance, Baron Vou Kallay, who is an ardent
champion of the Andrassy programme,
which aims at Austrian hegemony iu south
eastern Europe.
It ia, indeed, incredible teat a merely pro
visional Government like the Bulgariau Regency should so stubbornly resist the pres
sure of a great power like Russia unless it
had the most explicit and trustworthy prom*
ise-i of support from Vienna aud Bucharest,
The large Russian army collected iu Bes
esrabia would intimidate Stainbuloft and
his colleagues if they had not good reason to
believe that the Czar'.*, soldiers would have
to vanquish the combined forces of Auatria
and Roumania before they could reach Tir
nova and .Sophia. With such assurances
from Austria, their high-spirited attitude be
comes perfectly intelligible. Upon any
other theory their defiant treatment of
Kaulbar.H would be an act of lunacy.
Tlie attempt to avert the intervention ot
England on Austria's side iu the Bulgarian
business by challenging her right to prolong
any further the occupation of Egypt will undoubtedly miscarry. l>ecause Bismarck will
discourage it. The German Chancellor has
repeatedly advised the British Government
to transform their provisional administration of the Nile land into a formal annexation, and he i-* not likely to reverse his position at this time for the sake of enhancing
tin* prestige of France, and greatly increasing the influence of that country hi the Mediterranean.
It suits Bismarck well enough to have the
Paris newspapers revile the English and
labor to estrange the only friends that the
French posses*, in Europe-—we say the only
friends, because au alliance between a democratic republic and au autocracy like Russia
would be an unnatural and short-lived combination. But, although the Sphinx of Varan may hold his peace until tho English
people have l»e-n thoroughly exasperated by
the French proponal to steal the Nile country
after having refused to fight for it, we maybe sure that m the end he will favor a British
rather than a Gallic occupation of Egypt.
So the hands of England will be left free to
act iu Bulgaria and on the Bosporus as her
interest --hall obviously prompt ner.--.V. )*.

We have always traced with pleasure the
sympathetic feeling that has existed between
our own mother country and the more juvenile portion-ef its family, the Colonic*, more,
especially those of the Western Hemisphere;
as the progeny invariably Imitates the exam*

foster-children north of the American frontier only witb this difference, that tbey appear of late years to hiva almost "stepped
into their parent's ehoeo " prematurely, and
letting go the leading-strings, fearlesaly

The ravages of cholera in Coreu are vividly presented by late news that the deaths
from this cause in Seoul alone are a thousand
a day. This chief eity of the peninsuls
contains lose than a quarter of a million inhabitants within its wall, and aa the pestilence began to rage furiously there fully
three or four month* ago, it may be imagined what havoc it has made. An import
ant puint to note il that the sanitary con
dition of the capital has been for a long time
horrible in npitu of excellent natural drainage. The sewers were once very good, although open on the streets; but uf late the
houses have encroached on the tharough-
fires, and havo been recklessly built up to
and even over the sewers, leaving only the
space necessary for these conduits, which
have bocome filthier ind filthier. The les
son of tbis present devastation of Seoul Ib
the oue that wonld be taught in any other
city of the world nnder like circumstances ;
and horrible and pitiable as is the mortality,
insomuch that the dead now lie long un
buried, it cannot be called inrprising.
Major Burke met Col. P. Donan at Santiago en mate for Tegucigalpa. Col. Donan
was the bearer of a proposition from Gen.
Thomas L. Rosier, former engineer of the
Northern Pacific Railroad and associates, to
President Rngran of Honduras, offering to
construct an intcrocesnic railroad from
Puerto Cortea, bsy of Honduras, to Amapala on the Psctflc Coast. They aereed to
commence work by December and finish the
road in two yean. The proposition embraces certain provisions for a compromise
of the railroad bonds paid by certiiin agents
of tho Government in I-on don some sixteen
years ago, and for whioh th* Government
became liable. Col. Donan carried letters
from Secretary Bayard and Secretary Lamar
to Preaident Bogrsn endorsing Gen Rossci
ia strong terms. Major Burke himself received from the Government s donation of
60,000 acres of mineral land, agreeing in return to construct and equip an agricultural
and mechanical college, and to furnish machinery for two large flouring and grist mills.
Major Burke speaks in enthusiastic terms of
the mineral wealth of the country, and aays
the Government ia eager to secure American
capital and enterprise.
The Repress says ths relations of England
with France are bc-^oming critical nnder the
persistent and open diplomatic enmity
which is exhibited by the Trench envoys at
Berlin and in Austria. This is done, of
course, under instructions from M. De
Freydnet, M. Widdington instiacted al-o
by the French Government, returns to London, to demand the evacuation of Egypt by
the end of April. It is reported tbat M. De
Freycinet has directed the French Ministers
of War and Navy to prepare a scheme for an
attack on England. The memoir tothe War
Depsrtment does not contemplate an invasion of England, and therefore no general
mohiliJatio* is necwaary. Under the cover
nf concentrating the French naval forces io
the Mediterranean two carps dar.net are to
be landed in Egypt to force the capitulation
of the English there. A serious check to
theae bellicose plsns has already been experienced by France at Berlin. M. Herbette,
who was sent to interview Count Herbert
Bismark in th* matter, hss been warned by
Prince Biamarck thst he disapproves of a
forced evacuation, as England has occupied
Egypt as a mandatory of the powers who,
by diplomatic concert could ask her to withdraw. Franca* project would be hostile to
