he buttoned his dressing-gown, and
opened the gate to receive the expected

"My name it Parsons," renponded

the individual in the pa ntel tops in «

sir, no offense tueuit, only-—once in,

Mr, Gabriel Paraona wer not re-
11 -arkable fnr catching anything aud-

bestowed s glance of profound astoni-h-
ment   on  his   inynteiious  companion,
and p in: led   to unfold   the iinle  of
which he had been the bearer. Once
opened and the idea was caught with
verv little difficulty. Mr. Wat Iii s
Tottle had been ■ uddenly arrested for
331. 10s. 4.1.. and d.it-il his cniomunioa-
tion from a lockup bouse io tbe vicinity
of Chancery Lane.
"Unfurlunaie affair, thill" aaid Parsons refolding the note.
"Ohl notbin'ven you're used to it,"
coolly observed the man in tbe Petci-
'TomI" exclaimed Parsons, aft r 1
few minutes' coiwid-ration, "juat put

"Wery well," replied that impor ant
functionary; sdding, in a t-onfi Ir-ntiul
inauoer, "I'd advise the gen'lm'n'a

but be knows what's o'clock, lie does,

eloquent, and, to Parson*, particularly
intelligible harangue, the meaning of
which was eked out by divers nodaand
winka, the gentleman in the boots re
seated himself in the cab, whcli went
rapidly off and was soon out of sig'a..
Mr. Gabriel Parsons continued to
pace up and down the pathway for
some minutes, apparently ab.; .rbed in
deep meditation. The result of bia
cogitations seemed to be perfectly satisfactory to himselt, for he ran briskly into
the honae; said tbat business had*sud-
denlv summoned him to town; that he
had desired the messenger to inform Mr.
Watkins Tottle of the fact, and that they
wuuld return together to dinner. He
th°n basiily equipped himself for a
I drive, and mounting bis gig, was soon
on bis way to tbe establishment of Mr.
Solomon Jacob., tfutta (as Mr. Wit-
kins Toitle hai infoimej lum) m C'ur-
aiior eireet, Chancery Line.
When a ra.n i. 10 a violent hufy to
get on, «nd hia a specific object in view,
the attainment of *i ich dependa 00 the
completion of Lis journey, the difficulties which interpose themselves in hi'
way epp-ur not only 10 be innumerable,
but to h ve been called into existeno-
rrpecie-Py for tb* occasion The remark ia hy no means a n-w one, ami
Mr. Uabriei l'arsona ha I practical and
pernful ex|a»rience uf its justice in the
course of his drive. There are three
i-l ■ :;es of n .'tn;i ed objects which prevent yourdrivingwithanv d-greeofcuin
fort or cel-riiy through streets which are
but little frequented—ihey are p'gs,
children, and old women. On the oc
caaiun we are d. scribing, the pigs were
luxuriating on cabbage-stalks; snd tbe
shuttlecocks Buttered from the little deal
battledores anl the children played in
the road; and w men, ->ith a basket in
one hand and the street-door key in the
other, would cross just bef ie the horse's
head, until Mr Gabriel Parsons was
perfectly savag with vexation and quiie
hoarse witli hoi-ing au 1 imprecating.
Then when he got into Fleet sire-i,
there was 'a stoppage," to which people in vehicles nave the sa;i- faction of remaining stationary for half an hour, and
envying the slowest pedestrians; and
where policemen rush about, and -eize
hold of horses' bridles, and Lack fern
in o shop win lows, hy way of clearing
ihe road and preventing confusion. At
lengt'i Mr Gab.iel Parsons turned into
Chancery Lane, and having inquired
for, an>i been directed to Cursilo
aneet (for it was a locality of which he
wa»quite ignorant,) he soon found,
him -If opposite the house of Mr. Solomon J ic.ibs. Confiding his hors- and
gig to the care of one of the fourteen
hois who had followed him from the
other aide of Ulackfriara Bridge on the
nliiiiice of his requiring their services,
Mr. Gabriel Parsons crossed the road
and knocked ■( an inner door, the up j
per part of which was of glasg, grated
like the windows of this inviting man-
.ion with iron bara—painted white to
look comfortable.
The knock was anawered by a sallow-
faced icd-hairedsulky boy, who. afreraur-
veiin.' Mr. Gabriel Parsons through the
gla s, applied a large key to an'immense
wooden excrescence, which was in
lealitv a lock, but which, taken inc.. n-
juncti ni with the iron nails wiih »Inch

the appearance of being subject tu

"It's th- gentleman that come in thia

the top of the kitch-n stairs, which be
longed to a dirty woman who had just
brought her cbin to a level with the
passage floor. 'The g<-iitleo_aa'a in the

made Lis «.iy through the aperture.

The room—which was a small con
lined dun—waa p-ithinned off into
box *s like the common room of some
inferior eating house. The dirty floor
h.d evidently been as long a stranger
to tiie scrubbing mush as to carpet or
floorcloth; and the ceiling was c mplel-
ely blackened by the flare of the oil lamp
by which ihe room was lighted at night
The gray ashes of the the edges of the
tables, and the cigar ends which were
plentifully scattered about the grate fully
accounted for the intolerable smell of
tobacco avhicn pervaded trie pla e; and
the empty glasaes and lialf-suitr-.tel
slices of lemon on the tables, together
with the p> rterpota beneath them, bure
testimonv to the trequent libati. ns in
which the individuals who honored Mr.
Solomon Jacobs bv a temporary residence in hia house indulged. Over the
mantel shell waa a paltry luokiug-glas-,
extending about half the width of the
chimney piece; but by way of counter
poise ihe ashes were confined by a rusty
fender about t • ice as lung as the hearth.
From this cheerlul room itself, the
attention of Mr. Gabriel I'.vhi ns was
naturally direct.d to its morales. In
one (if the boxes two men were plaving
at crii-bage wiin a very dirty pack of
c.rds, some with blue, aome with green
and some with red Hacks—selections
from decated packs. The cribbage-
board had been n-ng ago formed on the
table by some ingenious visitor with tbe
assistance of a pocket knife and a two-
pronged fork, w th «hioh the necessary
number r f holes had been made io tbe
table at proper distances for tbe reception of the wooden pegs In another box a. stout, hearty-looking man of
about forty, was eating some dinner

looking personage—Had brought in a
basket; and in a third, a, genteel-looking

of the anti temperance fluid in a  large

"Thank'ee, sir,' replied Mr   Walker

prisoner,   addressing   tlio young   1111111
with tlio cigar, "you seem rather down

What's the matter sir?    Never say die

"Oh!   I'm   all   right,"   replied   the
smoker.    "I shall   be  bailed   out   tomorrow."
"Shall you,   though?''  inquired the
other.    "Damme;   I wish I could say
the same.    I am as regularly overhead
and  ears as the Koyal   George,   »nd
stand about   as much chance   of being
bailed out.    Ha, ha, ha!"
"Why," said the   yonng   man, s op-
ping   short,   and   speaking   in a very
loud    key, "look   at me.     What  d'ye
think live stopped   here two days for?"
"Cau.-.. you woiilrln r, get out, I sup

exactly obliged    to stop her-, only you
must —eh)"
"A'n't he a rum un?'' inquire the de
lighted individual, who had offered the
gin and water, of his wife.
"Oh, he just  is!'    replied    the lady,
who   wa.   quite   overcome   by  these
flashes   of   imagination.
"Why,     my    euse,"    frowned    the
victim, throwing   the end of   his cigar
into the fire, mul illustrating his argument by   khooking the bottom  of the
pot on   the  inUi-.   at intervals   "my

"Why   don't   you   ask    your   old

"Ay, to be sure," interposed the
horse-dealer, wih whose notions of
bargain and sale the axiom perfectly
coincided, "so should I."
Tlie young gentleman, who had
given ris to these observations, was

reply to these sneers, but the rising of

The "Colonist" continues to crow
Tbe victory obtained hy the Attorney
('eiii'i-al over Ned Allen is paraded
again as evidence of skill; but tlio or
gaii niliriits that the victory was secured
by the #20,000 given for roads and
bridges in the IJllooet district. Rob-
sou's pilgrimage through the New
Westminster district is deseriltcd as "a
bright record of Governmental success."
It is a pity that the "Colonist" had no
special reporter iu the train of the
Provincial Secretary to report what
was said in undertones by the plundered people. In the Royal City, while
he passes through the streets, the peo
pie growl iu undertones—"The koiirir
that BTiiLK tiie Capitai.." In tl.eoutlying districts he is pointed out lo the
children as "the man that plundered
the squatters and sold the Island."
And this is the man puffed by the
"Colonist." But any of the Victoria
pajiers u-nnld praise tbe de,il am. call
him a saint if his Satanic majesty would
only pay a trifle in ready money. The
"Times," another hireling, publishes a
peu-and ink sketch of tho palace put
up cm Bird-cage walk for this successful marauder; and never ventures to
say that tbe decorations, the carving,
the gilding, and the easy couches, were
provided by using the gold obtained
for the public domain given to aliens
ana capitalists. For every one who
says "Long live King John," a thousand shout iii chorus—"May the devil
take his hook nosed majesty."
The Franchise bill, the Chinese bill,
ami'' the 3-iquor bill, now before the
House at Ottawa, would never be con
sidered in committee if the people of
the Dominion had any bruins at all.
The Franchise bill is fit for slaves, and
wns introduced and supported by men
who hope to be slave-owners. What a
contrast between the legislators of the
United Kingdom and the amateur lawmakers who rest on pillows in the
House at Ottawa. About three million
names have been added to the list of
vol era in the old country, while our six
pr-nny law-makers are preparing to disfranchise half the electors of the Dominion. There aro no slaves in the old
laird, and therefore, every man drinks
as much as he pleases. It is time to
tell the legislators and fanatics of this
11..miuiou that it is impossible to give
any man common sense by act of Parliament. Look over the broad surface
of the Dominion, and in every direction you can see the deliberate prepar
at ions that are made to perpetuate a
perfect system of slavery. Tne whole
country from Port Moody to Labrador
has been handed over to a syndicate,
and the men who form that association
will be the landlords and the heartless
rulers of the Dominion. There is no
clause in the law that binds tbem to be
satisfied with a fair remuneration for
services, and therefore they will be our
On Friday a man named Finegan fell

Tlie law of marriage is just now attracting a good deal of attention in the

in the old army and had served with
him in the Mexican war. Immediately
after he had been brought into our
lines I went to meet him. When I

how he felt; but I know that I was
sad and depressed, und verv far from
rejoicing at the downfall of a foe that
hail fought so gallantly. Our conver
sation grew so pleasant that I almost
forgot the object of our meeting, and
we parred like friends." After reading the paragraphs written by the
Oeneral himself, the student of history
will say that Grant is entitled toa place
with the ancient heroes.
At a village in Dark county, Iowa,
a mob—a horrible mob -of "free'
white men and women, murdered n
poor negro and his wife in the public
streets because both were "offensive.'
The rl, tiils of the massacre by a pennj-
a-liuer are awful! The men used pistols and the women were armed with
axes and clubs. The wholo scene reminds us of "the flock of rats tearing
the pet blackbirds." Man's inhumanity to man is shoc'.ing; but. when he
appears as an angry ape encouraged by
a wicked woman, he is the vilest thing
on earth.
Fashionable petiycoats are sometimes like fashionable beads, fnll
of vanity; and the vanity is pretty
evenly divided bet*.*: en man and woman. A description of the fashionable
bonnet is really interesting; but here
we have, in the New York "World,''
the President's organ, and an excellent
paper, a minute description of the
fashionable hat:—"It is heavy black
silk—a white hat would be altogether
too undigrified for the President, and
besid- : it would not suit his complexion. He will probably wear this black
silk tile all summer. Bayard lias declared for pearl gray. His hat looks as
if it must have been built atWilmington
by a son or grandson of the same hatter who supplied the first of the Bayards. Manning wears a straw bat over
his right ear with the dashing grace of
a young naval officer." The Whitney
hat; the Endicott hat, the Lamar hat:
the Garland hat and tbe Vilas hut are
all described with great care. It is
amusing to hear "a citizen'' criricising
the vanities and follies of a court after
spending his morning reading the re
publican court circular and admiring
the taste displayed by the rulers in the
selection of hats. Uncle Sam is preparing to purchase a crown. The hu

General Grant is sinking slowly. The
writer of this paragraph heard him
speak on several occasions. He was
not eloquent; his action was without
grace; he had no idea of dignity; but
under tfmt coarse outside, nature concealed a great man. The account he
gives in his own book of his first battle
is amusing. He says: "As we approached the brow of the lull from
which it was expected we should see
Harris's camp, and probably find his
men ready formed to meet us, my heart
kept getting higher and higher, until it
felt to ine as if it were in my throat.
I would have given anything then to
have been away back in Illinois, but I
had not tba moral courage to halt and
consider what to do. I kept right on,
and from the summit of the hill I saw
the camp where Harris had been. My
heart resumed its place. It occurred
to me at once that Harris had been as
much afraid of me as I had been of
him. This was a fact I did not forget, and from that moment to the
close of the war I never experienced
the slightest trepidation upon confront-
The slightest accident may precipitate the war for which all Kurope is
prepared. Last week in a Japanes-*
port ihere was a Russian war ship ai

Agamemnon steamed into the harbour
I he call to arms w.is instantly sounded
by the Kussia.ii admiral and the deck of
his ship was instantly cleared for action;
but the capta n of the Engl sh w;ir ihip
went on board the liussian vessel and
as-ured the Rubsian captain ihat his pre
paration for w . r was unnecessary. To
evade the chance of a conflict the English ship left the port and anchored outside; but a Japanese armour plated
turret-ship came up immediately and
anchored close by the Russian. The
Russian captain quickly perceived
that a quarrel with the Jap might recall
the Englishman and therefore the
Russian was polite and assured the
Japanese authorities lhat his mission
was peace.

The "Times" says: "The Irish question is the only serious stumbling stone

this. Lord Randolph Churchi I has de-

On Saturday Sir Peter Lumsden in
London met with one of those enthusiastic recepr ions which are usually reserved for victorious general-. The
platform at Charing cross was crowded
with distinguished persons, including
three field marshalls of the British army.
He informed the audience which was
vast, that "India cannot be defended by

There is no parallel on record of a
similar state of affairs to those now-
existing in England. There is only
one great party in existence, the Conservatives. The Whigs are demoni'
izrd, and a section of them have joined
tho Conservatives; the remainder seem
wandering in objectless uieniidoriiigs
from one extreme of the political arena
to the other. For much of this Mr.
Gladstone is responsible; they appear
to have attached themselves to his fortunes, and have followed him, often
against their instincts, but apparently
afraid to lose his guidance, doubtful as
it was. But now they are like lost
sheep, and will doubtless, in course of
time, be gathered into the Conservative
fold. Any affiliation with the Radicals
is entirely out of the question; they
could never agree with th»m, oven
under Mr. Gladstone's leadership: and,
although they were often together in
the same lobby, it was owing merely to
his influence. The Radicals are simply
intractable, and will always remain,
henceforth, a small faction in the House
of Commons. Their day of triumph !b
over; the only leader who would be
tolerated by the country, Mr. Gladstone, has been dethroned, and their
importance is gone. The Puniellites
are in a precisely similar position, although they do not think so; they were
made much of by Mr. Gladstone, who
seemed to pride himself in his attempt
to fuse all the discordant elements ii.
the House, in order to oppose the Con
serva'ives; but he rode his hobby until
it fell under him, and he rides no more.
The Parnellites will be used by the
Conservatives so long as they remain
docile, but whenever they try to kick
oyer the traces, they will have a strong
curb affixed to their bits, and will find
that in Conservative hands any attempt
at obstruction will be effectively re
silted, and in this the Conservatives
will be supported by the whole of the
Whig party. The Parnellites coin
initted a great blunder in turning out
Mr. Gladstone; he was so fond of temporising that they might ultimately
have induced him to resuscitate the
Parliament in Dublin; as it is, the
prospect of such a consummation is
more remote I ban ever. Regarding 1 he
Conservatives themselves, they will re
quire to play their game very carefully.
We were under the impression that
they would not have taken the rein
till they could seat themselves comfortably after the election, with a good
working majority, which we have no
doubt they will obtain when that event
takes place. They bave, however,
chosen to step into Mr. Gladstone's
shoes, and they must make the ' "nt of
it till November, Their calculations
are, probably, to avoid all questions
that would arouse any party feelings
The defection of the Parnellites will
secure a majority, with the Whigs,
whenever there is any question about
Ireland. So far as the foreign policy
is concerned, we expect there will be a
complete lull; everything as far as
possible will be staved off till the new
House meets. Both Russia and France
are busy with their preparations for
the anticipated grand coup. Great
Britain has much to do to keep even
with her rivals, who will probably be
her antagonists ere long. The Conservatives are not likely to allow the
country to go to sleep, and indeed
their responsibility in this respect is
veiy great. The general impression
amongst the commercial and financial
classes in England is that war is certainly postponed until next spring.
Probably no greater indication of that
feeling could be pointed out than the
extremely low rate of discount and the
eagernoss with which Colonial securities are purchased; bills maytiow- be
discounted—first-clasB paper—at from
one to two per cent,, and loans on call
at three quarters of one per cent.
This all points to the uncertainty in
European affairs, the reluctance to engage in any enterprise, and the desire
to have money in a position to be easily
realized if required. The Radical papers—always copied by journals on
this continent-speak very unkindly of
the Queen, who, they say, was glad to
get rid of Gladstone and see the Conservatives in power. This is all mere
Her   Majesty  was quite
Government, and bad only one course
to pursue when the Gladstone party-
was defeated; Her Majesty is naturally anxious for the welfare and prosperity of her nation and people, and
finding one Government unsuccessful in
achieving these desiderata, very properly welcomes au attempt by their oppo
n.'iits. Wc are strongly of opinion
that the Conservatives will have a long
lease of power. The Whig-Radical
Government appeared to be unable to
do anything more than legislate about
something connected with the electoral
franchise. Such questions are very-
popular when there is plenty of work
and plenty of bread for 1 be people, but
they become monotonous when consul
ered with empty cnploards. TheCon-
III Ull Wi have a great card to play
with the fair trade agitation; it is one
that will take the popular taste and
will swamp the Radicals. It is not
siinp'y the artizan and the urban populations generally, who are interested; it
is also the agricultural class, which, by
the free trade fanaticism, of the Man
Chester school, have been robbed of a
livelihood by cheap American wheat
und the importation of cattle aud
frozen meat from all quarters. By
confining importations of these arti-
oles to our own colonies, free of duty,
and imposing a modi-ram duty upon
such articles imported from the United
States and olhfr countries imposing
heavy duties on English goods, they
would not raise the price of food, while
increasiug the revenue by sharing the
profits of foreign producers who tax
our goods. "•»
It is not enough that our so-called
minister., are using  the  public funds
for  the  purpose  of   buying  votes in
certain  parts of   the Province, where
they conceive that such corruption can
be practiced, with the greatest facility;
but, rendered  careless with impunity,
they give expression in  their speeches
to the most insulting admissions as to
their mode of procedure.     A few days
ago tha Attorney General went up to
see his constituents at   I.ill.met,  and,
judging from himself and associates, he
conceived that, as he was announcing
the proximate expenditure of so much
money on a much needed road, he was
at liberty to say what he pleased.   Mr.
E. Allen, as our readers are awarn, is
the Attorney-General's colleague, elected by the  same  constituency.    Now,
very little knowledge of   political   etiquette is suflicient to  point  out the
necessity of forbearance, with an anxious desire to hide the faults of a colleague—-while he is a colleague—from
the public git/.:*; nay, even to make excuses for what might otherwise appear
grave errors.    This is not the doctrine
of tho Attorney-General.    Mr. Allen's
grave crime against the Honest John
Government was, thut feeling inclined
to support a Government that proposed
to have a policy such as he   could respect,   he   supported   their   measures
without apparent caution;   but hurling
that they had only a policy of quack
cry;  that under cover of   hypocritical
profession and innch buttery talk, tliey
were outraging every principle of rirrl.t
and justice, he unhesitatingly declined
to vote with them, and  for this  he is
atalhema  maranalha.     It would   have
been  dangerous for the Attorney General to state in what particular manner
Mr. Allen had offended this mockery
of a government;   but  he  took   what

aware of the unpopularity of the late
our mailers will think with us, was a
dastardly advantage of his position to
humiliate Mr. Allen before liia constitu
ents. It will Ik, necessary to go beak
for a year or two in order to make our
readers perfectly acquainted with the
facia. Mr. Allen hns a st'ong, healthy
young man for a son; the upper country affords few openings for a young
man without capital. The Govern
inent appointed men to act as foremen
on the road; Mr. AJIen asked the
Chief Commission..!- if he had not a
vacancy; of course he had, anil young
Allen was at once appointed as road
foreman Mr. Allen the elder thought
no more about tho matter, but he re-
membered the interests of his constituents. He pointed out to the Government their faults, and absolutely voted
against them: young Allen was at once
dismissed. The people residing in the
vicinity cf the work where young
Allen was employed were much pleased
with the young man's industry and
fidelity, bo that when the Attorney-
General was amongst them they
thought it a good opportunity to have
the young man replaced, no fault having been alleged against him. Tho
Attorney-General told them in perfect
frankness, with the cold, cynical cruelty
felt by tbe man who knows that while
he is feeding the dogs they won't bite
him—he was promising them a large
sum for their road and he was sure of
their Bervility—said that the young
man could not be replaced; that he was
not required; that bis was only a
political appointment! That is, that
the young man had been employed as a
bribe to his father to prostitute the
sacred trust placed in his hands by his
constituents ! It was not merely the
shocking wound inflicted on the parent
by the knowledge that for years he had
been   receiving  through   his  son  the
wages of corruption and robbery, dreadful as such  a  feeling must  certainly
have been, but the unfortunate son was
made to feel that although he worked
hard and earned  all  the  wages  that
were paid him, he had only been permitted to do so at the expense of his
father's honor'   The whole affair is of
such a shocking and degrading character that we feel  sure tho  respectable
portion of our  population will   blush
for very shame at the thought of being
governed by men like Robson, Smithe,
Duck and Davie.    The commonest humanity or respect for social observances
would have made any other man than
a member of the present Government,
hesitate before inflicting such a horrible  wound.    The  common   desire   for
social decency would  have  prevented
almost any one from  from grossly insulting fother and son,   and   making
them feel that, unknowingly, they had
been implanting an indellible stain on
the  family  name.     But   our  readers
must   be  made acquainted   with   one
additional fact, which caps the climax.
The Attorney-General  absolutely owes
his election to the influence used in hi-
favor by Mr. Allen!    Caesar's exclamation,  when   wounded by   the   man he
supposed to be his dearest .friend, cr.uld
not  have been  forced trom liini under
circumstances   of   greater   treachery.
Mr. Allen,   wbo   was   present at   the
meeting where the Attorney (leiieia] so
cruelly expressed himself, attempted to
defend himself, but suffering  from the
terrible   wound just then inflicted, he
did not make the hirst of   it;   for although  truthfulness   was   strongly im
pressed upon svery word   he   said, he
went further than was at all necessary.
With tears iu his eyes, he admitted that
he hail sinned in   voting   for   some   of
the shockingly corrupt measures which
hud   been  introduced by  the present
Government.    The Kootenay bill,   the
Port   Simpson   grab,   the   Settlement
bill,   the   Consti'utional   Amendment
bill, the Eagle Pass Wagon Road bill,
and many others.    We hope  that this
shocking scene  may duly impress the
minds of otlier members, as they will
be   as   ruthlessly   exposed   when   the

I'he claim to which we refer is that of
John Fraser, a mining engineer of Carnarvon,
to the barony of Lovat. Wo all remember
Lhe story of Simon, f#ord Lovat, who was
beheaded on Tower Hill in 1747 for having
taken part in the rebellion of Charles Edward, the young Pretender. His career was
a singular ■•onihination of cunning aud flaring, of treachery and enrage. Early in
life, upon the death of his cousin Hugh, the
ninth lord, who left no son, Simo>i eloped
with the eldest daughter, Amelia, and when
she left hun, seized her estates. For this
and other deeds of violence he was attainted.
He then forced the widow of Hugh to marry
him, and for tbi-* crime Simon was outlawed
and compelled to flee to France. He returned to Scotland 8"ine years later and
fought against the Jacobins in the rebellion
of 1715, earning thereby a pardon tinder the
great.aoijl, ami the restoration of hi,. wtat«a.

Lovat, to head the clan Fraser on that disastrous day. Simon bore himself with courage during the ordeal of hie trial in the
House of Peers, aud surrendered his head to
the block, uttering the line from Horace:
"Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori."
His eldest son, the Master of Lovat, fought
gallantly against us in the Revolution and
became a general in the  British army.    He

yeara of   controversy,  conferred upon  the
representative of a remote collateral branch,

Ining engineer.
r who now cornea forward
to claim this aftcieut peerage dating back to
tbe fifteenth century? He la a lineal descendant of a man whose name will not be
found in the ordinary peerage booka. It
seems that tbe famous Simon never waa entitled to the barony, because he had aa elder
brother, Alex&uder, from whom tbe miner
of to-day is a direct descendant in the male
line. Thia Alexander was a rather lawleas
person. He took part in the rebellion of
Viscount lluodee in \UHlJ. Subst'juently,

To avoid arrest and trial he fl.-d to Wales-
am! as tbe Cm eminent was then looking
about for persons ooncerued tu Dundee's
rebellion, the rehtives ot the fugitive gave
out that he waa dead. He took refuge with
the Marquis of I'.mm, a Jucobite, and
worked as an ordinary miner ia tbat nobleman's lead mines. He devoted himself to
mining pursuits, prospecting for several
years among the bud mines, ami finally din.
covering tb.* I'.iry** Mountain copper mines,
near Almwicb, where he pMHd the rein-under of hie lite. While iu exil.- he n.arried
the daughter of .4 Welsh gentleman named
Edward*-, by whom he had four sous, the
eldest ol whom, John, was the great grand
father of the petitioner of to-day. Alexander died in 1775 when he was over HM) years
old. His son John and his grundson John
worked in the same mines, and the present
claimant, his great-graudson John, was first
a miner and is now a mining eugineer. Tbe

cause ia enormous, aud great lawyeri ure

Charles l.uiscli leading for the claimant, the
Solicitors-Ueneral of England aiyl Scotland
representing the present holder of the titl**,
and the Attorney Ceneral and the Lord ad
vocate watching the case for the Crown.
The petitioner's chain of title seems perfect, and it is not his fault that the claim
has lain dormant for over a century. His
grandfather went to Inverness to claim the
estates in 1815, his fellow miners having
raised a purso to pay his expensee. He
sought in vuiu to get his case taken up in
Edinburgh in t'orma pauperis, and later made
a fruitless effort in London, and it is only
recently that John Fraser bas had money
enough to collect the evidence aud bring
forward his claim.—N. t.Svn.

of3870-71 he hud still greater o)iportunities

them in a manner which made him one of

the Second German Army, comprising the
Second, Fourth, Seventh, Ninth, Tenth, and
Twelfth North German Cotpfl, estimated at
a total force of 260,000 men antl 500 camion.
This army was on the Rhine fruitier at the
close of July, 1870. On Aug. b\ Prince
Frederick Charles defeated Geu. Froiggard,
at Speicheren. On the Kith he vigorously
attacked the right of tlie position held by
Marshal Hazaine between Doncourt and
Vionville, and drove the French forces hack
to Met/, which he closely invested. The
seige of Mfitz resulted iu its capitulation on
Oct. 27, when Marshal Hazaine surrendered,

was on the following day created a Field
Marshal. On the 28th of the following
month he defeated Gen. Aurelle de Paladmea
and the army of tbe Loire, and early in December captured Orleans. In January, 1871.
after a six days' conflict, he took Le Mans,
and compelled Gen. Chauxy to withdraw his
foroee to the northward. The war was virtually ended in this month by the capitulation of Paris. The military skill shown by
Prince Frederick Charlee, while evoking
high praise from scientific critics, involved
elements of dash and vigor which appealed
strongly to the popular imagination, and aa

ever held. The President and Miss Cleve
laud attended one of the meetings of the
body and expressed words of encouragement
and sympathy in its work. One of the sub
jects discussed by the delegates, snd dwelt
upon with particular emphasis, waa the care
and treatment of the insane. Ouespectabst
thought the word insanity should be substituted by soul-sickness, brain-sickness, .-r
some more appropriate name. Dr. Codding,
of the Government asylum for the insane,
dividod the inmate.*) into eight classes, re
quiring a* many varieties ot treatment, and
homes of as many different kinds of con
atruetion, each of which he described,

the Court ehowod its sen*vo nf the conduct
of Ment. Chapuis by awarding onlj one
frutic diini.ige.'- to bis family.
Ths trial shows that the masters im the
art of (ence differ as to the right of the left
hand being used to word off a thrust. In
Italy thi; mode <*f defence is upcepted, and
at one time it was accepted in Englsnd. In
the year Kin L-rd Bruce and Sir Edward
Snckville I 'light a desperate duel, which is
described iu Steele's pa pet-*-. What the two
gentlemen quarrelled about is not stated:
but they agreed to meet near Antwerp: ami,
as Lord Bruce declared that ''a little of Sir
Edward's blood would not snrve bis turn,"
the seconds withdrew. The principals rode
to the ground attended only by their surgeons, wh" weie unarmed.
In his relation of this affair Sir Edward
s.iys that be was mad with anger that L<>rd
Bruce should thirst after hia life, seeing he
had come so far to allow him to regain his
lost reputation.     He adds:—
'I,bade him alight, which with all quickness he framed, and there in a meadow
ankle-deep in water, bidding farewell to our
doublets, in our shirts, began to charge each
other; having afore commanded nur surgeons
to withdraw themselves a pretty distance,
aud, as they respected our favors or their
own safeties, not to stir, but suffer ns to
execute our pleasure. We being fully re-
eolved (God for_.iv* us) to despatch each
other by what means we could, I made a
thrust at my enemy, but was short, and, in
drawing back my arm, I received a great
wound thereon; in reveng ■ I pressed into
him, though I then missed him also, then
receiving a wound in my right up, which
passed level through my body and almost to
my back."
At this point the pair seemed to have
seised each other's sword. Sir Edward continues:—
'In struggling, my band, having bnt an
ordinary glove on, lost oneof ita servants.
• * • But at last, breathless, yet keeping
our holds, there passed on both sides propositions of quitting each others sword. Who
should quit first was tbe question, which 00
neither part either would perform; and re-
striving again, with a kink and a wrench
together, I freed my long captivated weapon,
whioh  incontinently leveling at his throat,
being still master of h.a, I demanded if he
wouhl oak his life or yield his s«ord, both
which, though in that imminent danger, he
brsvely denied to do. Myself bein-_' wounded and feeling loss of blood, having three
conduits running on tin-, began to make me
faint, aud be courageously persisting not to
accord to either of my propositions, remembrance of his f irme- Idoidy de-ore, and feel

It tt identical iu principle with the Prohibition laws of Maine and Vermont. In both
these States every expedient of legislative
OOtfld -n has been employed by the rtahibi*
tiouist-. who, as a compact botly, have beeu
able to hold the balance between the parti; s,
and have b-en allowed to pile up penalties
and inquisitorial enactmenta to the full
m--.sure of their tyrannical will. And what
ia the result* In Maine, the State Prison
report says: "Intoxication is on the increase; some new legislation must be made if
it is to be lessened. In many of our counties prohibition d.'es not seem to affect or to
prevent it. The drunkard in the gaol will
tell you that, when out, he can get all the
bit -xicating liquors he wants when he ha*.
money to buy with." The politicians may
be terrified into prohibitive legislation, but
the conscience and habits of the people remain unchanged. Elsewhere, aiur notably
in Canada, intoxication is decreasing under
the ojieration of the moral influences; but in
Maine, where coercive legislation has ousted
the moral influences, it increases. The statistics of cri"ie of every kind are at the same
time just as high in Maine as in any other
Northern State, and the promise that pro*
iiibitii'ii would close the gaols has been to
tallv batted. Curiously enough, matrimony
j the troubles nf which have been alt ascrib«ed
j to drink, so far from having i*s happiness
restored by prohibition, seems to be peculiar
ly uuh.ppy, the proportion of divorces to
marriages in Maine being rather more than
one to ten. But then, it is said, Portland is
a great seaport, and the bad habits of the
l seafaring population spoil tbe effect of the
law: as though it were not precisely popula-
j tions w hose habits are bad that the framers
I of the law had undertaken to reform. But
I in Vermont tbere ie no great seaport, and
j the population oi that State, if of any, is
I law-abiding, religious, and a favorable sub-
■ ject for the trial of a sumptuary law. What,
then is the result in Vermont? According
to Mr. Ed ward Johnson, w hose statements
in the Popular Science Monthly nobody, to
far as we have seen, hss traversed, in Vermont also drinking-places swarm, drinking
is on the increase, and the law, in spite of
spasmodic attempts to execute it, is fracti-

and, after thorough mixing, a sulphate of alumina is added, hy which the dis.olved and
suspended impurities are quickly precipitated in one or the other of tbe settling

the river. The sewage as it enters the
works contains aliout thirty-seven per cent,
of suspended organic and inorganic matter,
but iu the affluent water there are found
only the merest traces of either. By experiment it has been found that in tins water
fish will live for months. The deposit is
then removed from the tank, and, by means
of pressure and artificial heat, ia deprived of
its moisture, till it obtains the consistency

The London Standard, in an article on the
recent ravages by locusts in Roumania, say,:
"Again and agaiu the various species have

if not occasioned, hy the effluvium from the
decaying bodies of the dead cattle, or of the
iuaects whioh have been blown into the
sea and afterward cast up on shore by tbe
waves and tide. A case is on record in
which the stench from a bank was carried
one hundred and fifty miles into the interior,
and early in the Christian era the hunger
and plague combined which followed a visitation of locusts in north Africa caused the
death of eight hundred thnnsand persons.
Four centuries ago, it is narrated on what
seems fairly trustworthy data, that more

The Madrid correspondent nf tbe Petit
Miirseillais relates a striking instance of the
intensity of family quarrels in Spain.
About a year ago a gypsy named M-rralis
was assassinated at Zerzo, in tha province of
Caceres, by one of his comrades named
Sira. The latter was in due course tried and
condemned to death, but his execution did
not satisfy the vengeance of the victim's
family. There had been ill-feeling between
the two families for three years, but there
had been no open quarrel until the murder
of Moralls. Soon after the execution of the
murderer which took place last month, the
two families met on their return from a fair
near the town of Caceres. They had their
mules and cattle with them. There wore
about fifty on each side including women and
children. A regular pitched battle ensued,
revolvers, knives, and sticks being freely
used by the men, while the women employed
their nails with considerable effect, and the
children threw stones indiscriminately. The
result of the struggle was that the heads of
the families were both killed, two ofthe women, and several of the children. There were
ten or twelve wounded, and the bodies of
tbe dead were horribly mutilated. If the
mounted police had not interrupted the
fight there would have been many more
lives lost. Several of the mules were killed,
and the baggage of the two famillies waa
strewn about in such disorder tbat the road

at Barcelona. He has been fur some
yeara an enthusiastic rtrloro-blologlat,
and received frnni the Madrid Academy
an award fnr a work In which he te-
enrded his investigations. The gint of
his discovery lies in the fact that he
foiInwed the cholera microbe of Koch
through Its various stages of developmental^ triiiisfiiiniiiiioii until he detected a spore (the peronnspnraforniiii ,
which in hie belief, cunlains the reul
virus of cholera. It wus with specimens of tbis organism that lie niiide hie
inoculative substance.
The villiago of Phoebeck is known
throughout tho whole of Germany is
the ctieoi-playing villiage. Fnr cen-
tunesevury native of that village, from
thu prosperous free-holder down to the
poor village shepherd, bus been an en-
thusiuslirr and a more nr leas efficient
chess player. From time iinmemurial
the knowledge and love of the game
have been handed down from onegener-
ation to another; and parents are still
in the habit of teaching it to their children aa soon almost as thev are able to
wa k It is one ofthe subjects taught at
village schools. At Easter forty-eight
of the scholars are selected by lot und
matched against each other. The
twenty-four winners in the series of
single combats then enter on a pecond
struggle, and then twelve ou a third.
Thesix winners in the three contests
are declared the champions and feasted.
The fact is admitted by an interviewed
showman that the feats of beasts and
children in the sawdust ring, are produced hy torture. From the highest elephant to the smallest girl on an equestrian's shoulders, compulsion under the
fear of severe pnnishment is the incentive. He remembers thata man once
had a small boy in training aa a hurdle
ridarof four ponies. Tha act is a familiar one aa done with full-sized horses by
an adult, the performer standing on the
back of one animal, managing them
all by the reins, and finally leaping
along with his own steed over the hurdles
The youngster had an arduous winter
at the work, and finally mastered it
through his greater terror ofthe teacher
than tbe horseback danger. Now, it
isatraditonal usage among circus people
that a smile must be on the face of a
performer. A ballet, girl without her
characteristic grii would be no greater
a curiosity than an equestrian who
did Dot show his teeth along with his
agility. But this child found it almost
impossible to smile. Instead, a distressful expression of fright came into
his face. Tbat would not do, and be was
literally clubbed until he smiled.
There has been a renewal of agrarian outrages in Ireland. A farmer war killed at
