"Then allow me to name it," said
Tottle eagerly.

cannot do so without at once resorting

"After what had passed between us,"
responded Miss Lillerton, still avertrni;

"I'll prepare it immediately," slid
Miss Lillerton, making for the door;
"the events of this day have flurried me
so much, Mr. Tottle, that I shall not
leave my room again thia evening; I
will send you the note by the servant."
"Stay—stay," cried Watkins Tottle
Still keeping a respectful distance from
the lady; "when shill we miet again?"

Mr. Watkins Tottle 8ung himself
into an arm cluir, and indulged in the
most delicious reveries of fut're bliss,
in which the ilea of "I'*ive hundred
pounds per annum, with an uncontrolled power of disposing of it by her
last will and testament," wis somehow
or other the foremost. He bad gone
through the interview so well, and it
had leriiiin itr-d so adniiiablv, that lie
almost began to wish he had expressly
stipulated for the settlement of the
annual five hundred on himself.
May I come inl" said Oabiiel Parsons, peeping in at the doo-.
"You may," rejlied Watkins.
"Well, havey. u done ul" anxi rusly
inquired Oabriel.
"Have I done i.i" sail Watkins
Tottle, "hush—I'm going to tbe clergyman."
"Nol" said Parsons. "How well

"Where does Titn.nn liwl" inquired
"At his uncle's," replied Gabriel,
"just around the lane. He's waiting
for a living, and has been assisting his
uncle here for the last two or three
months. But how well you havo done

it off so I"
Mr. Watkins Tottle was proceeding
to demonstrate that the Richardsonian
principle was the best on which love
oould possibly be made, when he was
interrupted by the entrance of Martha,
with a little pink note folded like a
fancy cocked-bat.
"Miss Lillerton's compliments," said
Martha, as she delivered it into Tottle's
bands, and vanished.
"Do you observe the delicacy!" said
Tottle, speaking to Mr. Gabriel Parsons.
"Compliments not lime, by tbe servant,
Mr. Gabriel Parsons didn't exactly
know what reply to make, so he poked
the forefinger of his right hand between
tbe third and fourth ribs of Mr. Watkins Tottle.
"Come," said Watkins, when the explosion of mirth consequent on this
practical jest had subsided, "we'll be
off at once—let's lose no  time."
"Cap.tall" echoed Gabriel Parsons;
and in five minutes they were at the
garden-gate of the villa tenanted by
tbe uncle of Mr Timson.
"Is Mr. Charles Timson at home?"
inquired Mr. Watkins Tottle of Mr.
Charles Timson's uncle's man.
"Mr. Charles ir at home," replied the
man stammering; "but be desired me to
say he couldn't be interrupted, sir, by
any of the parishioners."
"I am not a parishioner," replied
"Is Mr. Charles writing a sermon,'
Tom?" inquired Parsons, thrusting himself forward.
"No, Mr. Parsons, sir; Re's not exactly writing a sermon, but he is
practicing the violoncello in his own
bedroom, and gave striot orders not to
be disturbed."
"Say   I'm  here,"   replied Gabriel,
leading the way across the garden,
"Mr. Parsons and Mr. Tottle, on private
and particular business."
Tbey were shown into tbe parlor, and
the servant departed to deliver hia
message. The di taut groaning of the
violoncello ceased; foot-steps were beard
on the stairs; and Mr. Timson presented
himself, and shook hands with Parsons
with the utmost cirdialiiy.
"How do you do, sir!" said Watkins
Tottle, with great Boleiunity.
"How do you do, sir." replied Timson, with as much coldness as if it
were a mati"r of perfect indifference to
him how he did, as it very likely was.
"I beg to deliver this note to you,"
said Watkins Tottle, producing the
"From Miss Lillerton!" said Timson
suddenly changing color. "Prav sit
down "
Mr. Watkins Tottle sat down; and
while Timson perused the note, fixed his
eves on an oyster-Bauce-coloied ponriii
ofthe Archbishop of Canterbury, which
hung over the fire-place.
Mr. TitnBon rose from his seat when
he bad concluded the note, and looked
dubiously at Parsons—"May I ask," he
inquired, appealing to Waikins Tottle,
"Whether our friend here is acquainted
with the object of your visit?"
"Our friend is in my confidence," re
plied Watkins, with considerable importance.
"Then, sir," said Timson, seizing both
Tottle bands, "allow me in his presence to thank you most unfeignedly
cordiallv, for the noble pari you have
acted in tbis affiir."
"He thinks I recommended him,"
thought Tottle. "Confound these
fellows! the)' never think of anything
but their fees."
"I deeply regret having misunderstood your intentions, my dear sir," con-
tinued Timson. "Disinterested and
m.nly, indeedl There are very few
men would have acted as you have
Mr. Watkins  Tottle could   not help
thinking that this last remark was anything but complimentary.    He   there
fore inqmied, rather hastily, 'When is
il to be I"
' On Thursday " replied Timson.—
"on Thursday morning at half-past
"Uncommon early," observed Watkins Tottle, with an air of triumphant
self-denial. "I shall hardly be able to
get down heie by that hour." (This
was Intended foi a joke.)
"Nev,r mind, iny dear fellow," re
plied Timson, all suavity, shaking
hands witb Tottle again most heartily,
"so long as we see you to breakfast,
you know— "
"Eli!" said Parsons, with one of the
most extrsordinary expressions of coun
lenincc that ever appeared in a human
f ice.
'What!" ejrculated Watkins Tottle
at the same moment.
"I say that so long as we see you to
breakfast," icplied Timson, "we will
excuse your being absent from the ceremony, though nf conrse your presence
at it wouM give us the utmost pleasure."
Mr. Watkins Tottle stagg "red against
the wall, ami fixed his eyes on Timson
with appalling petseverance.

brushing his hat with his' left arm,

"Now don't stare nl that idiot in the
corner," sngiily exclaimed Parsons, as
the extaonliiiarv convulsions of Watkins Tottle's countenance excited tbe
wondering gaxe of Timson,— 'but have
the goodness to tell mo in thiee words
the contents of this note."

At the expiration of that period,
and when a council of war was being
treld in the kitchen on the propriety of
summoning the parochial beadle to
break his door open, he rang bis l-ell,
and demanded a cup of milk awl-water.
The next morning he went through
the formalities of eating and drinking
as usual, but a week afterwards, he was
seized with a relapse, while perusing
the list of iiiai'iiagua iu a mnniing papi-i
from which he never perfectly recovered.
A few weeks after the last named
occurrence, the body of a gentleman
unknown, was found in the RegenVl
canal. In the trousers pockets were
four shillings and threepence halfpenny;
a matrimonial advertisement from a
lady, which appeared to have, been cut
out of a Sunday paper; a toothpick, and
a card case, which it is confidently be
li-veil would have led to the identification of the unfortunate gentleman,
but for the circumstance of there Irein^
until* but blank cards in it. Mr. Wat
kins Tottle absented himself from his
lodgings shortly before. A bill wbicl
has not been taken up, was presented
next morning; and a bill, which has
not been taken down, was soon after
ward affixed in his parlor window.
" This note," replied Timson, "is
from Miss Lillerton, to whom I have
been for the last live weeks regularly
engaged. Her singular scruples ana-
strange feeling on some points have
hitherto prevented my bringing tbe en
gagement to tbat termination which I
so anxiously desire. She informs mo
here, that she sounded Mrs. Parsons
with the view of making her her confidant and go between, tbat Mrs. Parsons
informed this elderly gentleman, Mr,
Tottle, of the circumstance, and that
he, in the most kind and delicate terms,
offered to assist us in any way, and
even un tertook to convey thia nole,
which contains the promise I have
long sought in vain—-an act of kindness
for which I can never be sufficiently
"Good night, Timson," said Parsons,
hurrying off, and carrying the bewildered Tottle with him.
"Won't you stay—and have something?" said Timson.
"No, thank ye," replied Parsons;
"I've had quite enough;" and away he
went, followed by Watkins Tottle in a
state of stupefaction.
Mr. Gabriel Parsons whistled until
they had walked some quarter of a mile
past his own gate, when he suddenly
stoppr-d, and said—
"You are a clever fellow, Tottle ain't
"I don't know," said the unfortunate
"I suppose you'll say this is Fanny's

IS the summer of IK—, London was
visited by one of the most tremendous
thunder-storms that have been known
in this climate. Its character and
effects, some of which latter form the
snbjeot of this clrapt' r, will make me

There was something portentous - a
•till, surcharged air—about tho whole
of Tuesday; the 10th of July, IS—, as
though nature were trembling and
cowering beneath a common shock. In
tlie exquisite language of one of our
olrl dramatists, there seemed

that within   the  dim   confines  of the
"laboring air," mischief was working to
the world.
The beat was intolerable, keeping
almost men-body within doors. The
rlogs, and other cattle ill the streets,
stood everywhere panting ami loath to
move Thorn was no small excitement,
or rather agitation, diffused throughout the country, especially London; for,
strange to say (and many must recollect
tho circuinstance), it had been for
some time confidently foretold by certain enthusiasts, religious as well as
philosophic, that the earth was to be
rstroyed that very day; in short, tbat
the tremendous Judgment was rtf hand!
Though not myself over credulous, or
liven to superstitious fears, 1 own
that on coupling the-e fearful pre-
lictions with the unusual, nnd almost
preternatural aspect of tbe day, I
more than once experienced sudden
•ualnis of apprehension as I rode along
on tny daily lounds. I did not so much
communicate alarm to the various cir
oles I entered, as catch it from them.
Then, again, I would occasionally pass
a silent group of passengers clustering
round a street-preacher, who, true to
his vocation, "redeeming the time,"
seemed by his gestures, and the disturbed countenances around bim, to lie
foretelling all tbat was frightful. The
tone of excitement which pervaded my
feelings was further heightened by a
conversation on the prevailing topic
which I had in the course of the morning with   the distinguished   poet   and
scholar, Mr. .    With what  fearful
force did be suggest possibilities; what
vivid, startling coloring did he throw
over them! It was, indeed a topic congenial to his gloomy imagination. He
talked to ine, in short, till my distur
lied fancy began to realize the wildest
"Great God, Dr.  !" said he, laying his hand suddenly on my arm, his
great black eyes gleaming with mysterious awe. "Think, only think!
What if, at the moment we are talking
together, a comet, whose track the
peering eye of science has never traced
— whose very cxistei.ee is known to
none but God—is winding its fiery way
towards our earth, swift as the lightn
ing, and with force inevitable! Is it
at this instant dashing to fragments
some mighty orb that obstructed its
progreass, and then passing on to sards
us disturbing system after system in its
way? How—when will the frightful
crash be felt? Is its heat now bright-
ing our atmosphere? Will combustion
first commence, or shall we be at once
split asunder into innumerable fragments,  and sent   drifting through in j
finite space? Whither, whither shall
we fly? what must become of our
Specie*! Is tin- Scriptural Judgment
then coining? Oh, doctor, what if all
ihose things are really at hand?"
Was this imaginative raving ca'cu-
lated to calm one's feelings! Uy the
time 1 reached home, late in the after
npon, I felt in a fever of excitement. 1
found au air of apprehension through
out the whole bouse. My wife, children
and a young lady, a visitor, were all together in tha parlor, looking out for
ine through the window anxiously, and
with paler faces than they perhaps were
aware of.    The visitor just alluded to,
by the way, was a Miss   Agnes P ,
a girl of about twenty one, the daughter of an old friend and patient of mine.
Her mother, a widow (wiih no other
child than this), resided in a village
about fifty miles from town, from which
she was cxp-ctcd, in a few days' time,
to take her daughter   back  again into
the country.    Miss P     was a very
charming young woman. There was a
softness of expression about her delicate feature tbat in my opinion con
stitutes tbe highest style of feminine
loveliness. Her dark, pensive, searching eyes spoke a soul full of feeling.
The tones of her voice, mellow and
various, and her whole carriage and
demeanor, were in accordance witli the
expression of her features. In person
she was about the average height, and
perfectly well molded and proportioned;
and there was a Hebe-like ease and
grace about >dl her gestures. She excelled in most fciiiinliieaccoiiiplishiiients
but her favorite objects were music and
romance. A more imaginative creature
was surely never known. It required
all the fond and anxious survellance of
her friends to prevent her carrying her
tastes to excess, and becoming, in a
manner, unfitted for the "dull commerce of a duller earth!"
No sooner had this young lady made
her appearance in my bouse, and given
-oken of something like a prolonged
stay, than I became the most popular
man in the circle of my acquaintance.
Such assiduous calls ro inquire after
my health, and that of my family!
Such a multitude of men—young ones,
to boot—and so embarrassed with a
consciousness of the* poorness of the
pretence that drew them to my house!
Sueh matronly inquiries from mothers
and elderly female relatives, into the
nature and extent of "tweet Miss
P —s expectations!" Billing a for
mer stay at my bouse, about six mouths
before the period of which I am writing.      Miss   P    surrendered    her
affections—(to the delighted surprise of
all lu-r friends and relatives)—to the
quietest, and perhaps worthiest of her
aiinams—a young man, then prepar
mg for orders at. Oxford. Never, sure,
was rhere a greater contrast between
the tastes of a pledged couple, die'all
riling, romance, enthusiasm, he serene,
thoughtful, and matter of-fact. It
was most amusing to witness their occasional collisions on subjects which
developed their respective tastes and
malities; and interesting to note tliat
the effect was invariably to raise the
one in the other's estimation - as if
ach prized   most the  qualities of the
ither.     Young N  bad spent   two
days in London—the greater portion
of them, 1 need hardly say, at my
louse—about a week before the period
of which I am writing: and he and bis
fair mistress had disputed rather
keenly on the topic of general dis
cussion—the predicted event of the
lOtbof.July. If she did not repose
implicit faith in the prophecy, her belief bad, somehow or another, acquired
a most disturbing strength. He labored
hard to disabuse her of her awful apprehensions—and she as bard to overcome his obstinate incredulity. Each
was a little, too eager about the matter:
and, for the first, time since thev bad
known eacli otlier, tbey parted with a
little coldness—y. s although he was to
set off the next morning for Oxford I
In short, scarcely anything was talked
about by Agnes, but the coming lOtli
of July; and if she did not anticipate
the actual destuction of the globe, and
the final judgment of mankind, she at
least looked forward to some event.
mysterious and tremendous. The eloquent enthusiastic creature almost
brought over my placid, little, matter-
of-fact wife to her way of thinking!
To return from this long digression
which, however, will be presently found
to have lieen not unnecessary. Afrer
staying a few minutes in her parlor, I
retired to my library, for the purpose,
among other things, nf making those
entries in mv Diary, from which these
"passages" are taken—but the pen lay
useless in my hand. With my chin
resting on the palm of my left hand, 1
sat at my desk lost in a reverie; my
eyes fixed ou the tree which grew in
the yard and overshadowed my windows.
How s'ill—how motionless was every
leaf! What subry — oppressive— un-
usual repose1 How it would have
cheered me to hear the faintest "sough"
of wind—to see the breeze sweep
freshening through the leaves, rustling
and stirring them into life! I opened
my window, untied my neckerchief,
and loosened my shirt-collar—for I
felt suffocated with tlie heat. I heard
at length a faint, pattering sound
among the leaves of the tree -and
presently there fell on the window
frame three or four large ominous
drops of rain.

In Victoria there is only a small parti
cle of the geniuB of the age, and it
does not appear in the newspapers.
Nero fiddled while Rome was burning, and in Victoria the Attorney-
General and the lawyers are fiddling
with a comedy called "law" in the
Supreme Oourt. If the people had
any brains at all they would put an
end to the play and with ono voice
proclaim to the world that in this British Province there shall bo no slave
wasters. The following clause is the
only law that will settle tho Chinese
question:—"And be it enacted ihat any
white man, or woman, who shall be
convicted of hiring or keeping a Chinese servant, shall, upon conviction, be
sentenced to twelve months in tbe
chain gang." The |50 tax imposed by
law made at Ottawa is a delusion. The
meanest slave-master will pay that sum
tu enjoy the privilege of keeping a
slave. The fiddling at slavery practised
in Victoria ie a disgrace to the people.
Jjiwyera and judges are all ready to
maintain that slavery suits them very
From Yale to Peace River and from
Alaska to the Rockies, the signs of
prosperity are apparent. The wheat
crop is simply superb. It was irrigated by water from the clouds. The
potato crop is the very best ever pro
duoed in that region; and if the harvest ia good the farmers will be as happy as kings. The railroad will distrib-
nt - the surplus produce of the soil and
provide luxuries at low prices.
Another dead man found in the sen
near the North Arm. No inquest.
Rohtiou & Oo. believe that men on the
Mainland are dogs. On Saturday the
dead body of a man was found in the
harbor at Victoria, and forthwith a
jury was summoned. There was no
evidence to show what caused death,
but the enquiry was satisfactory.
Mr. Shakspeare, the M.P. for Victo
ria, haa been talking a good den! of
twaddle on the Chinese question in the
east—at Toronto and other places. He
snys he was elected by tbe working
men to represent them in the House,
li tbey elected a broom-stick it would
do just as well. He did nothing. In
fact he could do nothing. He belongs
to the same class of nonentities who
represent the people in the local House.

dhfvatry is pasl, and the mice of the
ercu'bn elevated by ignorance, rule and
rub. Mavery prospers; corporations have
more power than kings; and in fifty
years t'-e people here will be like the
Chinese at home, helpless, hopeless,

An asylum for insane persons in Paris
or New York would be useful—a representative institution; but this lump of
bronze means nothing. Ii is quite
possible that Bartho'di intended lo present lhe mind wiih a new idea; but he
has failed. Every one who sees the
bronze woman supposed to represent
"Liberty" points to "lhe crown of thorns"
on her head and asks—What is the
meaning of that? She holds aloft in her
right hand a goblet of fire, and looks
very like a mad woman preparing to

paints the picture of a horse must write
under it "This is a horse," bis art is nowhere. It is quile possible this statue
of Liberty was made lo commemorate

was convicted last week of the murder
of his cousin, and the heart of his good
old aunt is broken. She could no; be
lieve that he would be guilty of the
murder of her adopted daughter and his
own ioster sister. Bui he is a mere
dude; a charming snob; a vile cur,
worse than Bill Sykes, who murderer)
his Nancy. Bill's bloody deed was
followed by instant remorse; but Tom,
when he heard his sentence of death
pronounced by the Judge, smiled. '[ he
prisoner insisted that he had not seen*
the girl since September last, but the
Stale proved- beyond the shadow of a
doubt that he was wiih her in Richmond
on the day the murder was commiue .
The rope will finish his career.
Eigln e oaths ago John Smith arrived
at Omaha I om Chicago, and at that
I lace lie opened a div goods store, and
in letter* of cold he had written over
the house,'The Mekchakt Prince of
the I'ka.eies." A local reporter sats:
"He denounced tire traders who made
ten per cent, on sales; be carpeted the
sidewalk anJya-. <. open-air concerts to

The men on a strike at Cleveland,
Ohio, held a nice ing on Mondav, and
tiieir orator was a newspaper editor He
advocated theft, ais- n.and murder; and
declared tbat men bad no right to properly. He defied the police and tbe
government, and swore that he would
fight like a tiger if mv one attempted lo
arrest bim. He slopped to »ipe his
brow! A policeman lapped bim on 'he
shoulder and said "Cifinc." And the
hero marched io the lock-up. The
Crowd sh uted and then saw lhe sham
hero on the march.
The war of ihe elements continues in
raue over the great Republic. At Pittsburg on Tuesday there was thunder,
lightning, and a hurricane. Then a
cloud bur.il and wrecked seveia' towns;
the railway was destroyed in (our places,
and the trains going at fu 1 speed got
m o lhe mud. For seven hours over
an area of forty miles square the scene
was terific; hou.-es were twisted round,
and several washed away, but no lives
were lost.
The "Chronicle," published at San
Francisco, says:—"If one of our journal ventured to emulate the feal of the
"Pall Mall Gazette" it would be ruined.
It is not only In London that young
girls are led astray in dens by immoral
men. In this modern city by the
Goldi-n Gate the work of seduction is
carried on openly; and if all the scoundrels who now bask in the smi'esof San
Francisco society were to receive their
just deserts lhe accommodations at San
Quentin and Folsom would be entirely
tjo restrtcteJ. Any journal may, wi h
p.rfecr s,rfe y, hold up to scorn tbe ac
lions of a bummer or a hoodlum. To
expose crime in low places is a popular
proceeding; but you must not meddle
with the millionaire. Refer to his ruffian srh ever So gently, and the whole
pack rush out yelping, "personal jour,

fit of honest rage they will tear ihe self-

The hessian fly has invaded the wheal
fields of Ihe Stale of New Vork, and
the farmers, lo save half the crop have
burned the other half. The outside part
of each field has been consumed by fire,

and then go over and finish the harvest.
On Monday last General Wolseley
arrived in London and received an enthusiastic welcome. In thn Soudan lie
did nothing. Judged by all the evi
denee, the whole proceeding of tbis
great General anil liiS biave army was
a sham that cost millions. As commander-in chief of a British army that
achieved nothing, be deserved to be
noticed, but not to be cheered.
The Pall Mall Gazette, published in
London, has created a sensation all
over the world by accusations made
against a gang of old sinners who have
heen engaged in seducing female children. The reporters employed to make
private enquiry did their work as well
as if they were skilled detectives; and
the result will be a law to save inno
oence from miserable old human spiders.
Human nature in London is like human nature in the wilderness, and it
must be lashed if it presumes to violate
tlie laws of decency. In a leading ar
tide headed "Wn Bid You Bo of
Hope," the editor gfcys: —"If chivalry
is extinct, and Christianity effete, there
is still another enthusiasm to which we
may with confidence appeal; namely
the combined forces of democracy and
socialism." The tale told by tbe editor
is horrible, and he enters the lists to do
battle for the right, supported by the
Archbishop o' Canterbuiy, Cardinal
Manning, tha Earl of Shaftesbury,
Sam'l M irley, M. P., and the Ear! of
The Earl of Carnarvon, the new
Lord Lieutenant, was received in Dub
Iin with great enthusiasm: an immense
multitude escorted him to the Castle,
cheering and shouting Cead mile a
faillhe. The authorities made no attempt to secure a welcome for bim; it
was given with a will. Wlien he ascended the steps to the vice-regal lodge,
he turned, bare-headed, and bowed-to
the multitude. Then he heard the
charging cheer of tbe Irish; that terrible hurrah! that startled the Banes at
Clontarf and terrified the French at
Privare telegrams from Berlin to

The grand old monarch is very old and
must obey the natural law. His herr,
the Crown Prince, loves England, and
believes that an alliance with her is
necessary io secure in perpetuity all
the advantages gained by Germany in
the late war. He is even more conservative than bis illustrious father;
and rumor says Gladstone suffered defeat for the sake of his country, so
that in case of the Emperor's death,
the new  Eutfei-or  may have with him
bis ii.Innate friend. My Lord of Salisbury. Together these two men can
dictate the law to all Europe, and if
we may venture to give judgment according to the evidence, this alliance
will produce a very great sensation.
France sees it is probable, and there
fore she is polite when she makes ref-
-r. nee to uil'aiis in Egypt. Russia
sees it, and therefore she halts on thn
way to Herat. It is quite possible that
the great rigc which threatens the life
uf the greut Emperor pri-serves the
peace of Europe today, und bis death
may seal the bond tliat will secure the
perpetual peace for which John Bright
hopes and prays. Only one In tpn

Our readers have no doubt read the
reply of the first minister, Sir John A.
Macdonald, to an enquiry of Mr Blake,
in whioh he stated tbat it was perfectly
true that Port Moody had been adopted
by the Federal Government as the terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
but that the company would most
probably extend' the line to English
Bay, being necessary to the Asiatic
trade. Let us here note in passing,
that the extension is wholly unnecessary fnr the purpose named; that there
is plenty- of available space at Port
Moody, and that a similar amount of
space at English Bay, were it anything
equal to that obtainable at Port Moody,
would cost an enormous sum, such as
we do not think it likely the company
has at its di-posal. The ridiculous
story widely disseminated, that the
company, on the strengtii of the extension, will be able to issue terminal or
terminus bonds, and so raise the. necessary funds, is tlie merest nonsense;
they cannot sell their bonds of the
entire Canadian Pacific Railway at
anything like a favorable price, and it
is calculating too much on the credulity
of investors to suppose that the company could dispose of any bonds for a
merely speculative terminus, which is
very likely to be abandoned as useless.
But it must be remembered that by
the declaration of Sir Join. A. Macdonald, the company are going to construct the extension at their own cost
and risk. That by constructing the
additional twelve miles of railway, tliey
have, or pretend to have, some advan
tage in relation, to the Asiatic trade.
They consequently enter tho field as a
private company, who are making u
railway for some possible private advantage, and must pay for their right
of way whatever the private holders of
the land may ask for it; and are liable
to taxation on lands, plant and income,
for the benefit of the Province. It,
must be clearly understood that the
extension in no way benefits the people
of this Province; on the contrary they
arconly being subjected to the grasping
monopoly which lias already made itself
noted as an incubus upon the people of
Canada. Tlie water frontages that this
company seeks to secure on Burrard
Inlet and English Bay, exclusive of
those at Port Moody, would, in the
hands of private owners, be productive
of employment for our people and
taxes for our public treasury. But
what is this celebrated Canadian Pacific Railway Company going to do?
They have, through their arrangements
with our corrupt local Government,
secured the possession, in fee, of at
least six thousand acres of most valuable land at English Bay. They pur
pose to carry the extension down the
margin of tne Inlet, and they no doubt
expect by so doing, to possess themselves of all the valuable frontage from
Port Moody to English Bay! What
are they going to do with these: are
they going to build wharves and warehouses on them? Not at all. Their
calculation is to make a monopoly of
them, so that they may sell or lease
them at exorbitant, prices; or, failing
what tbey conceive to be a proper price
or rental, they will hold them unutilised to the exclusion of people who
would turn them to profitable account
on behalf of our people. We ask the
people of this Province if they are
going to allow themselves to be gobbled
up by a set of greedy monopolists, who
seem to think they have a right to do
what they like with us; and, because
it suits them to make a moek extension
in order to put money in their pockets,
we are to submit humbly to have a
large number of our best citizens
ruined, becauso this high and mighty
company choose  to  speculate.    It   is
true tliat we deserve a great deal of
tbis grievous wrong that these heartless
monopolists propose to intact upou us.
We have placed in power four men
who are absolutely using our own
money and land in older to sell us to
these railway speculators. \Ve are to
lie sold like a Hook of sheep, that these
four men may lie enabled to make
some money. We are to lio sad
died with a huge monopoly, iu order
tliat these men may realize a handsome
sum and leave us to work like galley-
slaves, dependent on the crumbs that
fall tn us fi <>in tbe table of the Canadian Pacific Railway company ! They
who rejected tin: Yellow Head pass to
cross the Selkirk range, and wbo now
will have to make a detour, absolutely
making the line much longer, at an
enormous expense. They will make
the change at the expense of tbe people
of (.'unrein, and we shall '•■ taxed to
pay for their misinanng'-inent and reckless adoption of a line that never should
havi- been chosen. We, the people of
British Columbia, have given towards
the construction of this millstone of a
railway, which now bangs round our
necks, forty miles broad of our land
throughout its entire length in this
Province; our present valued local
minister gave in addition three million
five hundred thousand acres of vidua
ble land at Peace river; we are now
paying inequitable and burdensome
taxes to pay interest on the loans that
the present Federal Government make
to this wonderfully fortutia'ecompany,
who, when we have given them our
lands and our money to bqrld the rail
way, take it over in perpetuity as their
own property. Not only so, but we
give them funds to speculate and buy
otlier lands, which have nothing to do
with the original contract. Is it wonderful that tbis company believe tliat
Canada was made for tbem? That the
people are only the bees in a coop to
gather the honey for their particular
delectation? How otherwise, in the
face of tho recent demand for a loan
from the Dominion Parliament, would
tliey dare to come to this Province aud
destroy our little enterprise by becoming particeps criminis with our corrupt
niinisrers and make a wholly unneces
sary extension of the railway? The
whole affair is so brutally heartless, so
completely at variance with the commonest rules of fair play aud decency,
that it is perfectly revolting. It is just
possible that the so-called ministers of
tbe local Houso may be enabled to
consummate this shocking transaction:
but it will neither avail themselves nor
the monopolists that, for pecuniary
reasons, tbey desire to serve. The
whole scheme, from first t.. last, will
prove a failure, because the next local
Government will upset the entire affair.
If ever words were prostituted, they
certainly Jiave been iu the case of the
two words at the bend of this article.
It is supposed tha' a government, so-
called, is re ponsible to the people for
their   acions,   and   that   the  people's
representatives call  ti.em to account
when tbey do wrong. This would be
very wise if the representatives did
their duty, but when the represr nta
fives make common cause with the
Government and accept a part of fhe
plunder for betraying their constitu
i-nts, who will protect tbepeopie? The
duty in such a case falls upon the
public press; but when thnt, also, is
bought by the Government, the whole
system becomes a mass of corruption,
and so far as the people are concerned,
a ridiculous farce. Having secured the
representatives and the majority of the
newspapers, nothing remains for the
bogus ministers to do but to please the
nrob. This is done in a variety of
ways: certain of tlie voters are created
Justices of the Peace; that is, they
have a license to fleeco the people on
their own particular account, and to
administer what is supposed to be the
law in such a way that they can secure
their own particular friends from mer
ited punishment and satisfy old grudges.
The whole machinery of such a government, from the highest to the lowest
oilii-inl, is vicious, because corruption
prevails everywhere, and men otherwise honest and well-inclined, become
inoculated with the common disease
and are rarely able to return to an
honest way of gaining a livelihood afterwards; hence, the ease with which
Governments hire willling tools to
help them in cheating the people. Respectable heads of families allow themselves to be bribed to complicity by
the bestowal of a place on a son or
relative. They see nothing but corruption everywhere, and although they do
not admit it to themselves, they tacitly
cunie io the conclusion that where everybody steals they may as well have a
share of the general plunder, and tbey
feel called upon in consequence to defend the public robbery, because they
are defending iheir own share of it,
being particeps criminis. Probably the
worst enemies the Government have
are those they have failed to satisfy
with bribes. The ministers do their
best to buy these growlers, but failing
that, they detail some of the miserable
traitors in their pay to persecute them,
and woe betide the growlers if they
can be dragged within the meshes of
the law, civil or criminal, they find
themselves reduced to beggary or disgrace; and often fail to recognise the
hands of ministers in their affliction.
Then come the masses: they must be
satisfied.    This apparently is very easy;

it is only necessary to find out who in,d
what the voters nie cmiij.os d of. For
instauci', religion!- prejudices, which are
curried to the verge of fanaticism, are
very much used. Wc know of a minister who, professing another form of
religion, went to a Methodist n-iiml
meeting und pretended to confess his
sins: he pretended to blubber And ory,
nnd so iniide himself n great man with
that denomination. Hut his own sr it
was also influential-so he divided his
afi'ections, attending the ministration of
one in tin' morning, and the other in
lhe evening. This is one way of cul-
vating lhe nioli. Uut then- are otlier
tricks eipially successful whioh rur
quite familiar to small intellf**_fe, nur!
are equally praotloed by men who sr-r h
office for plunder, therefore student! of
vulgar trickery. We heard of a minister who pretends to be a ;:ri-nt advocate of total alistiiir-iiei., who knows
that there is a number of fanatics on
this sulrject, located in certain neigh
borboods. Winn be goes amongst them
to whet their fidelity to li.tuMlf, I.i
takes a great daub of a picture with
him, showing the seven stages of inebriety, and while displaying the ten
cent picture, wnxe- eloquent on tin-
subject of Scott Acts, nnd so forth.
Does any sensible man believe that
people who can he tricked nnd luiin-
lioozled in any such manner, are fit to
enjoy the privilege of electing a representative to Parliament, who, lieiug
either a tricky rascal or a fanatic, has
a certain amount, of influence on the
legislation of lhe entile country)
This question will have, sooner Or liter,
to be considered by law-abiding people
who have property to tax, Mid Iry the
intelligent nrtizrin who litis some sens
of manhood and can vnderslafld what
"the   liberty  of  the  subject"   rin.-iie.
Hut the great mass of the people who
ore gulled by Ihr-se men rl office, whose
minds are only occupied by two tilings:
how to grab the greatest nuinunt of
plunder, and how to keep the people
amused while they are doing it. The
farmer, who has by dint ol the most
stinting self denial, the abse'le* of almost every homo comfort and every
enjoyment beyond tbe poorest food,
wretched clothes and half naked wife
and children, seems blind to the fact,
that the buttery-mouthed rascal for
whom be voted is fattening upon the
money he paid for taxes, that" would
have afforded himself and family the
luxury of a cup of tea. The urban
populations who are squeezed for roud
tax, school tax, property tax, income
tax (all outside of heavy municipal
taxes and the enormous duties levied
by the Federal Government), seem to
forget that these taxes are levied by
men who are systematically' robbing
rhem, and who study nothing else.
This Province, for instance, hns but a
small proportion of arable land. The
timber, which is supposed by some to
be inexhaustible, is in reality confined
to a small surface. The mineral lnnds,
our great wealth, are only to be found
in certain localities. Yet the arable
lnnds are given away by the million
acres toanybody who asks them. Our
timber lands are sold to aliens, who
will one day sell to us the lumber at
high prices. Our mineral lands are
being disposed of to aliens, who on the
strength of such ownership receive
other privileges by which tliey take the
trade and employment from our own
people. The question is, when the
present Government is hurled from
power at the expiration of their profit
able four years' work, what will be
left to pay and sustain the next Government I Nothing but taxation. The
lands being sold or leased, the timber
gone, and the minerals In the hands of
foreigners, there will be nothing left
but taxation to sustain the revenue.
The people, already very heavily taxed,
will naturally grumble, but this they
have really no right to do. They have
allowed themselves to be abused and
squeezed by four men who have not
even the average amount of vntelli.
gence, and who would make a poor
living in any other way.

"In 1876 tl.. Hrsi Goverm>r, Kir Arthur
Gordon, landed at Levuka, on Ovalu, one of
the Fiji Islands. He found the mjuutry in
a frightful condition; tbe inhabitants were
ftill partly cannibals) the fourteen tr h

preserved, protected, snd employed the
hereditary customs and trailitiuua of the
people. He guarded theii rights, strength*
em d the authority of the chiefs in their
elan's, and made them his frieuds, Thus he
became the master of the situation in a degree never attained by any native km..' ht
chief. The small liiitish force witb which
Governor Qurdon oabie has long departodi
nut a retl-cnat is left, except a ybtong lieutenant iu charge of a small troop of natives."
Alter referring to the increase In tlie p >pula*
tion iu recent years, and the additional area
ot land* brought Untl4r cultivation by the
a__tarian measures ol tbe Governor, Baron
Hnbner mentions one very curious result of
civilization. Women now wear long ;:ar-
ments night and day; they get up early in
the morning iu a perspiration, gu nut into
the fresh morning air for uuoWssg, and
thereby get lung disorders.
"Tlie native population appears C0ttt<ehted
under the KnglisJi rule. Nut so Lhe whites.
The tatter think the former too much ta
vnreil, ami the( m st violent complaints arc
made in the local journals, itt the Legislative
b 'dies, in the Australian-Colonies, an i some*
times even iu the lSnglish press. The Colonial Minister in London is constantly urged,
ami frequently induced, under thia pressure,
to issue Instructions contrary to the wheat
measures ot the Governor, and degrading to
his po-dtion in loco. His situation is not an
enviable une, and Sir Arthur Gordon's aec-
vices in Fiji ure, therefore, no small ones."
Men placed in sueh positions, be philosopht*
cally observes, must not expect gratitude
from their fellows; they must look En future
generations to judge their deeds. Time is
not alwaya a destroyer; it is 3oinetiu.es a
restorer. It ia, nevertheless, a satisfaction
to recollect that there are many men in Kngland who believe, with Baron Hubner, that
Sir Arthur Gordon is one of the wisest,
moat upright, and most sticoesafnl Governors
ever sent te wield tbe power uf Kuglaud
over inferior races.
Leaving the Fiji Islands, the traveller
naseed from island to island in the South
Seas, where the perennial beauty of nature
excites his boundless enthusiasm. But, alas!
though every prospect please-, man alone is
vile, for this brings him to tbe labor traffic.
He considers that the act of 1S77, and the
Order in Conned framed under it, have not
been successful, in which view he is at one
with the late high Commissioner. The Act,
of course, can only apply to British subjects,
white IRid colored, and this is the m iin obstacle to ita success; but the Commission
which sat in 1883 to inquire into the Work*
LDffof the Act and Order pass lightly over
this part of the subject.    Tbey do so be
anue this ia a delicate p .int.

colonisation and nations as colonisers, based
on his three journeys, which have carried
bim to eveiy quarter of the world to which
Europeans go either to trade or colonise.
"In the seventeenth century France and
Holland aent their children abroad — the
former to Canada, where the France of Louis
XIV. lives to-day, and to the mouth of the
Missihsippi—Holland, to South Afri«ca. But
the French have since lost the desire, am),
iu my opinion also the power, to colonise.
They have conquered Empires, but nowhere
founded Colonics—except Algeria, which is
a Maltese and Valenclau Colony, rather than
French. It is true that in many foreign
ports one finds French merchants and shopkeepers—for the most part very estimable
per on but their business is unimportant.
I'he productions of French industry stream
to all markets in the world, but they are not
bandied by Frenchmen. The traveller finds
everywhere the. French cook and restaurant-
keeper, the French barber and the never-
failing Veuve ef/iaonole, whose cradle is not
the banks of the Manzanarea, but in the
Cannebiere of Marseilles, or in the Quartier
Broda in Paris, Besides these there are
only two classes of French abroad — the
willing and the unwilling; missionaries ami
sisters of mercy make up the first class, and
convicts the second. I will not say that tbe
regions eourjiiered by the French do not possess their own importance; but they are no
Colonies in the ordinary sense of the word,
If by ' "Ionics we mean foreign countries developed and Inhabited by Europeans. The
Italians (said the lecturer) all bave a bit of
Marco Polo in them. But the majority of
[t»Han emigrants ia of the lowest class.
They leave their own country in great, perhaps too great, numbers, anil go almost
wholly to South America, where tliey marry
Indian women, and are begiuning to people
the Pampas with a new race. Tbe great
colonisers of the present day are the English,
Germans, Scandinavians (in proportion to
their .small numbers), and the Irish. The
irishman and bis wife must be pronounced
tli mc I successful of all missionaries, for
wherever they go tiny Increase the number
nl Catholics, But the Knglish are par ex-
-   ; nee the coloniser..."
"llie Englishman is intelligent, active,
and brave to rash ness. He loves and seeks
danger, and is pleased with venturous, even
hopeless, tasks. Many are ruined in thia
way, but many more come out victorious
from the conflict. It is a succession of triumphs and catastrophes, but the triumphs
are more numerous. In this respect the rate
of Hingle Englishmen and tyeir nation are
alike. It is a characteristic of tho Anglo-
Baxon race. I will utter no word of blame
ut this; on the contrary I appreciate .tho Irresistible desire, the violent longing towards
tjie wide horizon of the unknown I feel
the nameless, mysterious charm of danger.
But he who dares much risks great loss. The
!u fcory of India and of the English Colonies
iri rich in catastrophe which, with leas ra»b-
ness and more caution, could have been
avoided. The German is calm, and loves
not dangor for fts own sake. He does not
seek it. But if ho finds himself in it, h
looks it tn the face without terror. He has
all thu qualities which distinguish the Englishman, with somewhat leas of the initia
iive. because less inclined to embark in ad
ventures.- He Is sensible, sober, thrifty, less
anxious to grow rich in a short time, and has
better school education. I speak here of the
colonising portion of Imth peoples. Take
.!,eui all in all, the English ami German
emigrants have equal advantages. They
hold the balance even."
"But no one who speaks of these matters,"
says Baron Hubner, "can pass hy Ch ni iu
Minn e. The wars between England ami
< 'hiim have thrown down the great wall
which existed between the Chinese aud tho

The capture of a stronghold in Afghan
Turkestan by a partisan of the exiled-Ayouh
Khan is, perhaps, only the first of a series of
Uprisings and aggressionB which were ex-
peetcd to follow the unpunished capture of
IVnjdeh and the juxtaposition ofthe Russiau
out. tists to the Ameer's dominions. In
this and each succeeding instance of privily
encouraged invasion or revolt, the St.
Petersburg Government, when called upon
for explanations, will no doubt hasten to
purge itself of all responsibility. But with
every added cause of irritation and sns-
picion the difficulty of preserving peace on
the Afghan frontier and of keeping the relatione of Russia and Great Britian on a
friendly footing will of course be aggravated,
and increased tension will be much more
likely to culminate in rupture, now that
Lord Granville has given place to a diplomatist of much Use tractable and conciliatory temper.

■A.II this is plain enough to the Czar's ad-
vieera, who are not much comforted by the
assurance that the uew head of the British
Foreign office will violate none of the arrangements sanctioned by bis predecessor,
and they have allowed !St. Petersburg newspapers to echo the official discontent. Uow
much does Rui-t-ia gain, tbey aay, by Lord
Salisbury's Acquiescence in L«-rd Granville's
treatment of the Penjdeh incident and in
th" I.easar boundary, if the fresh encroachments, to which those accessi.na were meant
to be but stepping atones, are to be re
messed with an ir ui hand? Have the
Russians poured out blood like water and
lavished ntoney that their stmitened
finances could ill afford on thesucceatdve expeditious of Kaufmann, Luareff, and Skobeleff—whereby the Russian territory has
been steadily extended from the Caspian to
Khiva, to Geok Tejic, and to Mtiv—merely
to find their further advance inflexibly cut
off and to l»e hopelessly cooped up in two
or three oases of the Turcoman de*ert? The
.St. Petersburg diplomatists are too well informed not to perceive that if Gen. Komaroff
should have to stop abort at Penjdeh and
Sarakhs, which are valueless except aa way
stations on the road to II.-T.it and to India,
he would become the laughing stock of every
bazaar in Turkestan.
But this ia just what may happen should
success in the general election give Lord
Salisbury au untrammelled control of the
Government which he now directs by sufferance. Ku-sia th-n would unquestionably be
warned not to advance an inch beyond her
actual frontier, and not to meddle upon any
pretext with the affairs of Afghanistan. And
thia admonition would be heeded, when the
Czar discovered that the helpless isolation
in which England had been plunged by Mr.
(iladstone'-j shuffling and hand-to month diplomacy hid been exchanged tor an alliance
with tbe powers ot centra! Europe. For
such a league wouhl mean in its ultimate
significance that a gun fired und^r the walls

The value of the residual product of petroleum (iis*illatioii aa an efficient and
economical source of steam power is claimed
to have'been conclusively established in
connection with the marvellous development
by the Bruthers Nobel of the petroleum industry, at tbe Baku Works, Russia, which
are fed thinngh pipe lines of an aggregate
length of more than sixty miles, by the Apparently inexhaustible petroleum supplies
of the Aspheron peninsula. The residual or
heavy oil which remains after extracting the
illuminating and lubricating oils from the
petroleum, and of which Messrs. Nobel now
produce 450,000 tons annually, is already
used as fuel on upwards of three hundred
steamers upon the Caspian Sea and tbe
Volga, and by the locomotives on the trans-
Caucasian and trans-Caspian railways. In
regard to the employment of refuse petroleum ns fuel in locomotive engines, it iB
claimed tbat, weight for weight, it bas 33
per cent, higher evaporative value than an
thraeite, and that while 00 per cent, of efficiency is realized with the latter, "5 per
cent, ia obtained with petroleum refuse.
It is stated that the recently patented
process for the manufacture of a gum of the
eucalyptus globulus, which haa the effect of
thoroughly removing the scales whieh form
on steam engine boilers and preventing rust
and pitting, haa created a largely increased
demand for it. The effect of this preparation
in thus preventing the pitting and corrosion
of boilers will, it ia expected, extend the
period of their usefulness 100 or ISO per
cent , aud at the same time insure a very
considerable saving in fuel, as scale is a nonconductor of heat. The distillation of essential oil from the leaves of this tree is another
branch of industry.

"And now, Mr, Kaye, did ye come up
aboot that place in the Inland* Revenue I

"No, Mr. G.," saya I, "we've come up on

"But, Mr. Kaye, we need money."
"Wee! put it on something that can

The death ufhis eccentric brother put

extraordinary old Earl of Dysart who
'lied some years ago, leaving $9,000,000
i i personal property and a real estate of
$2i>0,000 a year and was one of his executors. Lord Sudeley at one time embarked

The Princess de Sngan, who is at the
pinnacle of Parisian high life, gave a most
splendid masquerade ball lately. The
courtyard of her residence the finest in
Paris, was adorned with palms and
ablaze with torchlights. In the hall
and on the great staircase, walled with
flowers, were placed at intervals fifty
powdered footmen. The Princess represented a peacock, her dress being a
miracle of splendor. Mrs. Deacon, an
American, was a briliant succesri as a
dragon fly. Toward midnight a door
was opened and a huge hive was seen.
A drum beat, and from the hive burst
a swarm of bees in bodices of brown
satin aprons spangled with gold, and
little gold hemletswith bees' proboscises
on them. They danced a charming
ballet, in which they pretended to try to
escape, bnt were deterred by the drones
—gentlemen in brown satin. At length
the queen chose a king, and the ball
ended by a waits of drone-and bees.

The Japanese of the higher classes,
as is generally .known, have adopted
very generally European dress in place
of their own graceful garments. The
higher class of officials, having for the
most part become accustomed to foreign
dress in Europe, have retained it on
their return home. Hitherto, however,
the wearer could select what dress ho
pleased, except iu certain court cere
monials, when European clothing was
de. riijoeiir; but now, it appears, the
option is no longer to be iven. Officials of all classes must give np their
uative dress and adopt the European
when engaged in their official work,
and, aB the latter p> beyond the means
