"Ah, quite othrrwiae—exfier/o crede,'
replied tbe quiet doctor, helpinK himself to • clam of »ine, "the shocks you
bave alluded to have really, though invisibly, shaken the furtress; arid now
we will try what sapping—undermini,:/;

a remarkable case of a former patient
of mine, which ia quite io point."

good-humoreJIy; and shaking him by
ihe band, I hurried to my chariot, and
drove olf. Experience had certainly

(Bear with me, kind reader! Suffer
me to lay before you yet one or two
brief concluding extracts from this
mourniul portioi of my Diaty. If your
tears flow, if your feelings are touch rl,
believe me it ia oot with romance—it i
with the soirows of actual life. 'It is
better to go to the house of mourning
tban to go to the bouse of feasting; for
that is the end of all men—and the
living will lay it to hia heart.")
Nov. 9th to \4th, inclusive.—Between
these periods I called several limes at
SoinerHeld House, but saw little altera-
ti n in Sir Henry's depoitment or pursuits, except ihat he was at limes, I
heard, verv thoughtful, and had entirely
lai aside his tab—taking, in its place,
ti chess. He grew very intimate with
the crazy genilen.an before mentioned,
who was imagined, bot h by himself and
Sir Henrv, lo be the king More tban
once the keepei warned Dr. Y— to interfere, for the purpose of separating
item, for he feared lest they should be
secretly concerting some dangerous
scheme or other. Dr. Y— watched
them closely, but did not consider it
necessary to interrupt their intercourse.
I found Sir Henry, one evening sitting
with hia friend, the king, and their two
keepers, very boisterous over their wine.
Sir Henry, staggered towards me on my
J entry, ainging snatches of a drinking
song, which wnie attempted to be echo
ed by his majesty, who was plainly far
gone. I remonstrated with the keepers
full of indignation and alarm at their
allowing two madmen the use of wine.
"Loid, doctor," said one of them
smiling, taking a decanter, and pouring
out a glass of its contents, "taste it,
and see how much it would uke to
intoxicate a man."
I did—it was toast and water, of which
the two lunatics had drum', several de
canters, complainiug all the time of
their being allowed nothing but sherry'
I need hardly add that they had, in a
manner, talked, and laughed, ami sung
themselves tipsy! Sir Henry, with a
hiccup—whether real or affected I know
not—insisted upon my joining them,
and told his majesty of the hoax I bad
lately heen playing upon him, by "getting up" his own "tale," and mystifying
i.iin by telling it tn him of another.
His majesty shouted with laughter,
Wednesday. Nov. 16.—This was the
day appointed for the funeral of Larlv
Aune, which I was invited to attend. I
set apari, therefore, a day for that
melancholy, that sacred purpose, I was
satisfied that no heavier heart could follow her ber to the grave than mine.
It was a fine frosty   day.      I'he sky
was   brightly,   deeply   blue,   and   the
glorious sun was tbere, dazzling, but apparently not warming the  chilly   eai.h.
As I drove slowly  down to tbe Hall
about noon, with what aching eyes -'id I

the cheery sparrows,   fluttering  about

In vain I strove to banish the hideous
image of Sir Henry from my recollection
—he seemed to stand   gibbering  over
the corpse of his lady I   —  Hall was a
spacious building, snd a blank  desolate
structuie it looked from amidst ihe leafless   trees—all   its   windows closed—
nothing stirring about it but the black
hearse, mourning coaches and carriages,
with coachmen  and servants in  Bible
silk   hat-bands.      On  descending and
entering the Hall, I hastened out of the
gloomy bustle of the   undertaker's  ar
rangements   below    to   the   darkened
drawing-room, which was filled with the
distinguished relatives and fair friends
of   the  deceased—a   ailent,   mournful
throng 1      Well, it was not long  before
her remains, together with those of her
father, the E.rl of —, were deposited in
the vault which held manv members of
their ancient family.    I was not the only
one whose   feeling   overpowered   him
during the oerrmony and unfitted me, in
some measure, for tbe duty which await
ed me   on my   return, of   ministering
professionally tothe heart-br ken sisters.
Swoons, hysterics sobs, and sighs, did I
move amongst during the remainder of
the day I     Nearly ail the attendants of
tbe funeral left the Hall soon afterwarda

and sorrow; bnt I was prevailed   trpoo

It was at a late hour that we separated for our respective chambeis.      That
alloited to me bad been lhe one formerly
occupied by Sir   He.iry and   his  ladv,
anl   was a   noble,   but to me, gl oinv
room.       I hough pa*! one o'clock, I did
not think of g,-u ng .nto bed, but  trimmed ny lamp, drew a chair lo the table
beside th-* tire, and having brought with
me pen, ink, and  pap, -, began  writing,
amongst   other   things,   some   of   the
memoranda winch an- incorporated into
tr is narrdive, as I felt too excited  to
rhink of sleep. Thus had I lieen engaged
for some twenty minut-s or half an hour,
when I laid down my pen to listen—for,
unless   my   ears   had   deceived   me
Heard the sound of soft music at a httl
disisnce.    How solemn was the ailenc
of that "witching h ur!"     Through lh
dim-ion cuitains of the window, which
1 had partially dr wn a  side,  was seen
the moon,casting her lovely smiles upon
'be sleeping earth, all    quiet as   in   her
immediate pie.-.ence. How tranquil was
all before me, how mournlur all within!
The very room in which I  was standing
had be>-n occupied in happier times, by
her   whose   remain* had that da) li in

\t length   more   dreary   thoughts—of
Somi-ifield—of ita   wretched  insensate
tenant flitted across my mind.     I diew
hack again thecurrain, and returned to
the chair I had quitted, lesumed my pen
Again, however, I heard the sound of
music; I listened, an I distinguished the
t.uiesof avoice, accompanied liy a guitar,
singing the melancholy uir,"Charlie is
my darling," with much simpiicity and
pathos.    I stepped again to the window,
for the singer was   evidently   standing
close before it       I gently drew aside a
ittle of the curtain, and saw two figures,
one at a little distance, the other   very
near the window.      The latter was th
minstrel, who stood exactly as a .Spin
iard is represented in su?hoircumsiancs
h"rt cloak over his shoulders; an r thr.
color fled from my cheeks; my eyes were
iilinnsi blinded, for I perceived it was—
Sir Henry, accompanied by the   wretch
whom he treated as the king.     I stood
staring tt him unseen, as if transfixed,
ti 1 he completed his son..    He paus»d
"They sll sleep   sound," he exclaimed,
with a sigh, looking up   with a melancholy air at the windows. "Wake, ladylove, wakel"    Ile began asain lo  Btrike
the strings of his guiter, and was commencing a gay air, when a window was
opened overhead.       lie I. oked up suddenly.      A faint shtiek was hear I from
above. Sir Henry flung away his guitar,
and, followed by his c nipuinon, sprung
out of sight in a moment.       Everyone
in theh use was instantly roused.   The
shriek   I had heard   was that   of Lady
E izaheth—tlie youngest sister of   Ladv
Anne—who had recognized Sir Henry;
and it was providential that 1 happened
to be on the spot.    Oh what a dreadful
scan1* ensued!    Servants were sent out,
as soon as they could be dressed,   in a'l
directions   in pursuit of the fugitives,
who were not, however, discovered   fill
daybreak.    Sir Henry's companion was
then   found, lurking   under an    arch
of a neighbouring   bridge,   half   dead
with cold; but he eiilior could not, or
would not, give any information respecting the baronet.    The keepers   arrived
pont at the HaJI    by seven   o'clock   in
search of lhe fugitives.
It was inconceivable how the madmen
could have escaped. They had been
very busy the preceding .lay whispering
together in the garden, but had ait
err jugh to disarm any suspicion whi"h
that circumstance might excite by a
seeming quanel. Each retired in apparent anger to his apartment; and when
thi keeper came to summon them to
■upper, both had disappeared.
Advertisements were issued in all
directions, offering a large reward for
the capture of Sir Henry—hut with no
success. No tidings w.re received of
him for upwaJ of a week; when he
one day suddenly made his appearance
at the Hall, towards dusk, very pile
and haggard-^his dress in a wretched
state—and demanded admissi n of a
new porter, as the owner of the house
Inquiry was soon mule, and he was re
cognized with a shriek by some of the
female domestics. He was really, no
longer a lunate—though he was believ
-d such for several days. He gave,
however, unequivocal evidence of his
restoration to reason—but the grief and
agony occasioned by niscov»ring the
reath of his lady, threw him into a
nervous fever, which left him, at the
end of five months, "morn dead tban
alive.' Had I not atten 'ed him throughout I declare I could not have recogniz
ed Si' Henry Harleigh in the h.ggared,
emaciated figure, closely muffed up
from head to foot, and carried into an

The news from Granite Creek continues to shine and is decorated with
uuggots; but at this season of the year
the chances in favor of ad veil tu ters are
very slight. At the end of au Indian,
summer- winter comes with a 'bound in
the northern districts of the Province,
and then the business of mining with
rrr.'kers must end and sluice-boxes are
played out. From all the evidence
presented to us by interested and dis
interested parties we learn that the
ereek and its forks are rich; in fact
well supplied with the precious dust*;
and we believe that an immense crowd
of gold seekers will be at work then'
early next spring. The adventurer
who goes there at this season without
money is not the owner of a clear mind.
Cardinal Newman, addressing the
Roman Catholics of the United Kingdom, says: "It is your duty to assist
the Conservatives and maintain the
Established Church against the attacks
of its enemies, because it is one of the
greatest bulwarks iii Kngland against
atheltm. 1 wish success to those who
are defending that, Church. My friends
and myself will  join  iu  defending it.'
Those words havi' attracted universal
attention all over this United Kingdom
and will aid the Conservatives at the
approaching election.

A correspondent of the London

namely, submission to tho inevitable.

The landleaguers in Ireland otter to

In many parts of the country that is

Mrs. Langtry, "the Lily," was summon d before the County Court at
I 'helsen, Inst Break, for household debts
ontiaeli-d while she was living with
her husband. Her plea was "My old
man is responsible for the bills." His

too many attractions and they soiled
her. She was beautiful; but if her

hump-backed young woman, he would
rive escaped all the miseries provided

A telegram from Edinburgh, dated
the 20th insr., says: "Ross Winans,
the American millionaire who owns

Scotland, was mobbed and stoned on

parks for American millionaires is a
crime, and those who tolerate the prac
tise are traitors. To destroy the martial population of the Highlands in
this age is a sure sign of national decay.
In a leading article published in the
New York "Freeman's Journal," the
editor u*cs bitter sentences in describing
the dangers of walzing: "A few words
of introduction muttered by a stranger
gives a young man the privilege of hugging a young woman to slow music as
long as a waltz tune lasts. If he makes
to his boon companions his own comments on her complaisance, it must be
admitted that she lias given him an excuse. If he is a cub —and he oflen is a
low, degraded cub in the habilaments of
a dude—he has her at the mercy of his
foul tongue, and in the present state ol
social customs neither her father or
orothcrs care" When the boys and
gir's are as merry as crickets and waltzing, it is amusing to waich them. Oh,
ves, it amuses the old bachelors who
have no wives or daughters in the jig".

But the lact is he can look at her there

From   appearances,   there  is   much
reason to believe that England at least
so fur as political iiiuiio-uvering is eon
cerned,  is  being   Americanized.    Formerly, although the struggle for power
was quite as determined as now, there
was more respect for decency anil fuir
dealing.    Party lines   were more  distinctly drawn and  the voter knew exactly who and what he a as voting for.
It is far ilill'erent now: party lines are
indistinct and the professions and promises of   political  leaders   have  to   be
taken with a very large grain of suit
Tin- Radicals ure deelured iconoclasts,
and to accept their code  would be to
subvert every hallowed   social usage in
old England.    It is communism, pure
and simple; and if they were to obtain
power, it would be the  beginning of a
bloody revolution.    It  is   very likely
that the   Radical leaders promise and
preach more than they intend to per
form or be parties  to;   but they sliould
look  at  the results  of  the   seditious
Speeches of   the   Irish  agitators,  who
have wrought up their hearers to sueh
a pitch, that they have now become un
manageable, and will do more to defeat
the Parnell  party than all the speeches
and warnings of the  Government and
their supporters.   Mr. Chamberlain has
mounted  his   hobby,   and   like   many
demagogues   who   have   played   their
little part in history, he will strut and
fret his  hour  upon   the  stag.',  as did
Wilkes,  FearguB,  O'Connor, id  genus
omne.    Gladstone, poor old man, will
never cease   to play the politician, so
long as he can   write and speak coherently.    He is respected for his  past
soi vices and his wonderful command of
language;   but his days of  leadership
are gone never to return,   and   it  is a
great blessing for England that it is so.
His unfortunate political career while
at the lead of   Government hae cost
England the lives of many brave men,
and many millions of money, already;
but the cost to her in the future will
be tenfold  what she has paid for  the
same stupid blunders.    Lord Hartitg-
ton is a very ni-e man, but he has be
come a I borough politician, without the
ability of a leader,   but with all  the
ambition;   he has not  the outre  ideas
of Gladstone or Chamberlain,  but  he
wouhl swallow n good deal to got into
office again.    Parnell has all the riiiibi
tion, but he  is  quite aware of the unmanageable   material   ho   has  to deal
with:   he  will   struggle for  awhile to
make an Irish party, and when he sees
that the case is hopeless he will accept
a place and retire from the game.   The
Conservatives are sure of power, and
they   would   have   obtained   it   much
more satisfactorily to their own party,
and to tbs people of Kngland generally,
if they had not been  coquetting with
Radicalism and Parnellisui.    But asso
cinted as they are with political  trick
sters, they, or some of them, were led
to believe that  they must meet  tricks
with tricks, and   in   this  they  grossly
insulted the great mass of the English
people     They will get over that when
they return oneo more to office  with a
good   majority,  and  they will  be very
much   ashamed   of   themselves   when
thay are charged with their folly.    We
quite agree with the London Standard
in  its  criticisms  of   Lord   Randolph
Churchill's vagaries;   and we feel sur
that no one will look upon them with
greater   horror  than   Lord   Randolph
Churchill himself, when he has time to
look   back   upon   tlmm.      It   may   be
that   his    American   wife   has   been
infusing some  of   her   Yunkee smart
ne-s   into    her   liege   lord,    but   she
does not understand Englishmen   and
may be doing real   injury to  her  hus
baud,  where she  desired  to do good.
The   Conservatives   are   badly   "constructed" yet, and it will take a year or
two before   their really good men are
brought to the surface;   that they will
be,   and   that  the   Conservatives will
have a long leas- of   power,   we  feel
sure,  because  the   English people are
now thoroughly tired and afraid of ihe
RaBicals.    All the buncoin about the
democratic   wave  and   the  march   of
enlightenment towards universal freedom,   is   perfectly understood  by   the
beit-r classes in England, and that, the
Radicals are perfectly aware of.   Their
object, then, was to swamp ihe vote of
the intelligent classes, by the adoption
of  a near approach to universal   suffrage;   in   this,  we  trust,   they   have
completely failed.
Though numerous cases may operate to

City with their surreys.
Our readers must havo observed recently the rapid and  extensive manu
facture of J. P.'a that haa l-een  going
on  recently in   the  factory at  James'
Bay.    They are perfectly impartial, so
long sa the  subjects  to   be acted  on
belong to the   followers of one of the
ministers.    Qualifications, or the want
of them,  is no liar  with honest John
and his colleagues.    They possibly remember that their own  qualifications
are of the humblest, and they are, con
sequeiitly, not hypercritical with their
satellites.    Be this as it may, they  arc-
nevertheless, from their own   standard
of intellect,  aware of the weakness of
human nature in relation to titles, and
even the very common title of "Justice
of the Peace"--though  some of them
can't write and more  of   them   can't
spell —has a substantial sound and implies some degree of power, very pleasing to the vanity of a small-minded or
ignorant man.    Of course these large
children never trouble themselves with
thn thought that the next  administration may dispense with their services,
whenever they feel so inclined, or   find
it,   politically,   convenient.    The   fact
that  the services  of   certain J.   P.'s,
created  by the   previous Government,
had been dispensed with to make room
for some of   their friends,   will   make
the new appointments more recherche
and more eagerly sought after, particularly if thn appointees have suffered at
the hands of the  cashiered J. P's,  as
they (the new men) will have the satisfaction of using iheir official p iwer to
repay an old grudge    But, joking aside,
this  manufacture of J. P.'s,   with the
sole object of securing their votes and
interest, is something very disgusting,
and the people should   proiect  themselves from such  an infliction   by putting a stop to such appointments, except
in very rare instances, and these fenced
round  with such conditions as to make
any desire to make J. P.'s remote, and
any desire to  accept  the   office  rare.
Such a protection might bo created by
the absolute   necessity   for   such   appointees being  examined and granted
certificates by a  Board   appointed  by
the   Law   Society — by ballot — from
amongst  the legally appointed   barristers; such a Board to sit at stated pe
iods.    Aspiring J. P.'s would have to
acquire at least   the  rudiments of law
and   know   something of   the   duties
of a magistrate.    Being compelled to
prepara themselves for on examination
and to pay a handsome fee for a certificate, men   like   the average  J. P.,   as
manufactured by honest John, for instance,   would  never be honored by n
seat  on   the bench.    There are other-
ways  of   buying   votes,   with   one of
which the public were made acquainted
recently—very cruelly—by our valuable   Attorney-General:    we  allude   to
what he termed political appointments.
Men are  thrust into all kinds of positions, without reference to their tituess
by education or experience or  mental
capacity;   and they aro discharged, no
matter how   valuable   they may be as
faithful public servants,  to  ni&ke way
for a more us ful  tool, or to buy the
votes of a  family  or  its  connections.
There is something so despicable  and
corrupt aliout this,  on  the   part of  a
minister, and something so  dustardly
on the part of a recipient, conscious of
the reason  for  the appoin'inent, that
we are sure everyone, not tainted  in
this way, will agree with us, that both
giver  and   receiver are  beneath  contempt.    Yet men to  whom we are in
clined to give credit for some degree of
self-respect, fall victims to this kind of
bribery and become as corrupt as their
employers, and, strange to   say,   claim
everyone's   sympathy   when   they  are
thrust  aside   from   their  comfortable
feeding at  the  public  crib.    Some of
these small-souled creatures are ready
to sell themselves for very small gains—
anything, in fact    rather than earn an
independent livelihood,  in which they
could exercise their freedom of opinion
like good citizens—which they are not,
since they do not possess minds of their
own.    But  of all the  frauds on the
public   are   the   men   who  seek  par
lianientary honors for the mere opportunity of   selling   their  vot'S  to  the
highest bidder, or who hope to be able
to secure   a  more extended  means of
disposing of their wares at good profits,
to  the  public,   perfectly regardless of
the  constituents  who  are induced to
vote for them.    These  last  should always be held up to the public scorn and
contempt,  by every honest journalist.
We sincerely trust, with  the great fu
ture opening now to our Province, that
everyone possessed of the suffrage will
cast   his   vote  in   opposition  to  such
men whenever ihey are pointed out, as,
to be a party to their  election is  simply to be a party to their meannesses,
and equally culpable with   the candidate.    That  a  great  deal of political
trickery will be  practised at the coming election we   have  every reason to
expect, but we have some consolation
in knowing that the most noted practitioner, honest John, will be foiled with
his own   weapons.    He  has  practised
liis peculiar mode of political warfare
until he has  made everyone  familiar
with it.

As tlie records of sport h<*nr ont, pheasants
are now shot in almost incn-■ fili'e number**.
The comniissari'jt of London i *. annually an*

Although (he Prince of WaleB is hy no

ot Saiidringham and tin* adjoining property
■f Castle Hisinghum, which he hub lenseil
for sporting purpose**, as many as 7,500
pheasants are usually provided by His Royal
Highness for his spurting friends. In two
or three of tb'.* dukenes, anil ou other la*ge
estates aR well, immense pains are taken to
insure abundant suiiplius of the bird of
Colchis. Tin- killing of from 2.000 to 4.000
birds at one battue has often leen recorded,
and it is on record that 9,500 were shot
during one season nt Elvedon, in N -.folk,
whioh has an area of 17,000 acres, and where
all kinds of name used to be bied for sale by
the Maharajah Dhnleep Stag. There are
other game farms, as they are called, in \ari-
ous parts of Enyla-i I, und there is at least
one auch place in Scotland, situated on the
Marijuisuf Ailsn's estate in Ayrshire, and
connected wirh it there is also an interesting
uuit-i! of piscicultural ponds.
Great pains arc annually taken to keep up
the pheasant supplies, n* well as the supulieB
of partridges. There aie probably not less
than two thousanit estates in tbe kingdom
on which from five hundred to ten thousand
pheasants are annually reared for general
Hp-irt and for the November and Christmas
battues. There arc dealers who supply
either eggs or chicks, Some inimoii*ie orders
are executed hy these persons, the eggs varying in price as the laying season advances.
These eggs are usually placed under barndoor fowlB, to be hntciied under the personal
superintendence of the keepers and the'r
Womankind) and the tending of the stting
hens—there are of course hundreds of them—
involves an immensity of trouble, second
only to the ceaseloss trouble which attends
the rearing of the chick-., a forge p. rceutagc
uf which, even in the best regulated pheai-
antriea, are doomed to death from "gapes"
and other causes. Among tbo wild-bred
birds the mortality is still greater t'.au it is
among those reared by the d-miesiic hens.

thoir supplies by robbing the nes s of the
wild birds. A hen lays, under natural cir-
cumstanc-s, trom ten to 11X10*0 eggs; but if

and might prove unpopular to venture an

Mr. Kavanagh, the young draper's as isi.-
ant who eloped from Dublin with Miss
Wilson, an heiress and a ward in chancery,
has been released from custody. The charge
on whieh he was held was contempt of
court in seeking to marry a chancery ward
without the consent of the Lord High
Chancellor. The latter has now become
convinced that the young people acted in
ignorance of the law, and he has released
the expectant bridegroom and consented to
the marriage on condition that the bride's

hundred clergymen who had just left the

Mr. Chamberlain, reviling and jeering him
aa the arch enemy of the Church. The
Radical lender fixed his monocle in his eye,
looked over the cruwd, ami laughed derisive

minutes Mr. Chamberlain was in dnnger of
being mobbed) but his train arrived opportunely, and he jumped iuto a carriage and

We know enough of New Guinea to be
certain that o thorough study of its flora and
fnuna must yield remarkable results. The
expedition that recently landed on the great
island from Australia includes twelve white
men, most of whom are specialists in natural
hiBtory. Their long list of instructions includes a request for "very small parrots,
three inches long, which creep about the
stems of fruit trees, and, being all green on
the back, are not easily seen.' Specimens
of the "twelve wired and "long curved
billed" varieties of the Birda of Paradise are
also particularly desired, anrl likewise all
new or rare ornamental shrubs. This expedition landed at the mouth of the River
Aird, on the southern coast, and it hopes to
penetrate uorth to the centre of the island.

The election whieh took place iu France
on Sunday resulted in the collapse of a great
|arty -the party created by Oambetta,
whieh foiled the reactionary schemes of the
De Broghe-Fourtou conspiracy, which forced
Marshal MacMahou to resign, and which
for the last eight years has dominated the
republic. Its arrogant, wrong-headed, but
to all appearances unshakable, majority is

helpless, purposeless, hopeless minority,
whose numerical weakness will In: aggravated by intestine jealousies, rancor, and re-

Henceforth there are to be in France-—as

So much at least seems certain, although
no reports at all are yet forthcoming from
some of the departments, although the
teturns received are incompb te, aud although
second ballotings will be needed to till some

to have been chosen—about three-fifths of
the whole number—so large a proportion are
Conservatives, while among the Republicans
so marked a preponderance belongs to the
Jacobin contingent, that the Opportunists

profound discouragement. Even if they
could be rallied, and by a severe efface ment
uf personal antipathies aud rivalries munage
to hold the greater part of the seats still vacant, they would, indeed, abate the humiliation of defeat, but they could not gain a
victory. The majority on which they
counted, und which tiny have enjoyed so
long, has passed beyond their grasp; and although they should retain a slight numerical
plurality over the more advanced Republicans, their moral ascendancy is gone. They
have wusted their heritage; they have made
the respected name of Opportunism a byword; they have had recourse in their dejection to the political weapou ofthe xcrutin de
Ustt, which the sinews of Oambetta might
not have sufficed to wield; and they are laid
low by the recoil of their owu Jiigine.
According to the prevailing, though not,
indeed, inflexible, rules of political development, and particularly to the course of things
generally observed in France, this striking
revolution--it is nothing short of that—
Bhould not at once materially improve the
prospects of monarchical reaction. This
seems clear for many reasons. The monarchists will still be too weak in the new
Chamber to do themselves much good, but
they will he pufled up enough to do them-
delves much mischief. Then, again, this
very election, inspiriting as it may be to the
Com-ervatives, shows unmistakably that the
predilections of thu country aro even yet decidedly republican. They are so because
the great mass of rural voters who think
more uf concrete proofs of the national well-
being than of political watchwords and
professions, feel tliat the republic has not
had an exhaustive, trial, that it hus still at
lea-st one string left to its bow. In all the
recent hot debates over the Ferry programme
of colonial expansion, the Radicals have laid
quite as much stress as thu Conservatives on
the ruinous depletion of the nation's fiscal
aud military resources. The peasants are
accordingly convinced tliat, so far us concerns one grievous source uf waste- the
policy of adventure—it would be as ruthlessly cut off by a Cleineiictau demucr.tcy as by
a rcsus'-itatcd monarchy. They are do-posed
to believe, or at the very least to hope, that
in all other directions also Clemenceau and
tbs party whose balm Soulier ur later must
he confided to his hands, will be able and
willing to enforce those habits of rigorous
economy which are indispensable to save
France from bankruptcy.
Already, therefore, it looks probable that
Clemenceau iu his turn is about to hnve hie
opportunity. It may not come forthw th,
for the remnant of Oambuttists may not
meekly resign themselves to the subordinate
position to which they are irrevocably destined. They are still numerous enough to exact

The experiments with high explosives have
been concluded at Lydd. Although there-
suits have not been of such a nature as to
justify any practical use of dynamite, gun
cotton orother dangerous compounds in connection with shell tiring, still much valuable
information has lieen obtained. It is found
that the effect of the explosives against
earthworks, intrenchmcntB, 4c, is not
greater than that of shells filled with the
ordinary gunpowder, and, of course, the
danger of premature "bursts'' constitutes a
drawback to their use. Oun cotton is nf
least value, the shells nearly all Iteiiig
"blind,'' i.e., the fuse fails to ignite, or
rather to detonate the charges. Blasting
gelatine, on the other hand, waa found to
act too soon, and it was this energetic compound which, after twice bursting the shells
prematurely, on the third round shattered
the howitzer from which it was tired.
Another method was that invented by a
German who conducted his experiments in
person, and thia w as, on the whole, successful. Nitric acid and another highly dangerous chemical were enclosed in the shell in
glass flasks, aud on the shuck of discharge
the flasks were broken, the two substances
being subsequently thoroughly mixed by the
rotation of the shell in its progress through
the air. The second shock, when the shell
struck the ground, exploded the latter with
excellent effect. It is admitted that where
it would be necesiary to make a breach in a
fort or vessel defended by metal plating of
any kind, these shells wonld be superior in
effect to the ordinary projectiles fired with
gunpowder. Their action is local—that is,
the whole, or nearly the whole, of the force
is expended on the Spot where the shell
strikes. The blasting gelatine is now lieing
utilized by the Royal Engineers, who ure
about to conduct a 'series of interesting experiments in i-ts use in connection with the
demolition of stockades and other similar
'defences.     The   question   will   have   been

peretir; ami, tlmiigh a prince, he was ao
aii.'bh- Ui a'l i* irta uml 0 nditioiis of people
that he became very popular in many circle*,
and erentual'y succeeded in winning the
hund of the daughter of a highly recpect-
ahle Bristol tradesman. "The Prince's"
wedding tour w-a-i unfortunately iutert upted
by his arrest in Belgium on a charge of fraud
in relation to foreign bonds, and be was .
brought baek to Kn;;lrud under the extradition treaty, and charged la-fore the Lord
Mayor with misappropriating securities t)
the value of upward of £1,000 from the safe
of a M. Hephistides of Constantinople. In
the course of this prosecution it was alleged
that "the Prince" had some time before the
fraud planted upon the unsuspecting Oreck
an iron safe, of which he himself retained a
duplicate key, aud by means of which he
some two years afterward succeeded in possessing himself of the bonds.
The next heard of "the Prince" was as
plaintiff in an action tried in the Kristol
i'olzey Court in October, 1^74, in winch he
sought to recover damages from his father-
in-law and Alfred Brnnble, a constable of
the Bristol police force, for false imprisonment under somewhat extraordinary circumstances. It appeared tliat his wife, having
refused to live with him any longer, was residing with her father at Bristol, and "the
Prince," by way of asserting his marital au-
tho. ity, was in the habit of knocking at the
father's door at all Imurs of the night and
disturbing the peace of the neighborhood.
Tin* conduct becoming unliearahle, "the
Prince" was given into custody, and hence
the action. The proceedings in the Tolzey
Court were chiefly interesting for the Bevcre
cross-examination 'is to his antecedents to
which he was subjected by Mr. J. F. Norris,
he le'rrned counsel who appeared for lhe
defendants, and now one of her Majesty's
Judges in India. The jury returned a verdict for the defendant Brimble, aud fur a
farthing damages only against the father-in-
law, and the Recorder refused to certify
for coots.
After this action "the Prince" appears to
have sought solace in foreign travel, and
from time to time lie was heard of at Cyprus,
Constantinople, and eventually a report
reached Bristol that he had been shot by the
Civil Guard while escaping from a prison in
Persia. He was regarded, though not mourn
ed, as dead; but about the middle of last
month a genlieman, whom we will designate
as Mr. P , now residant in Philadelphia,
hut formerly a citizen of Bristol, and an intimate friend of the p?eudo Prince, observed
in the New Yi-rk "Herald" the following announcement of marriage :
Auk, 2°. ''y the K'V. J. Stanley d.Orsay, Zseharis
Ztcbaruff te Jf&nutiFrsucaH UUiiugs, all of Lbts
The name of the bridegroom revived old
reminiscences of his former friend, "the
Prince," whose bones he had supposed were
bleaching on the wilds of Persia. On making inquiries l.e found that his Burmises
were correct, that Zacharia Zacharoff who
now described himself as a count, was no
other than hi. whilom associate 'the Prince.'
He also learned that he had obtained au
entree into the beat of New York society,
and with a cheerful disregard of the laws of
bigamy, had contracted a mesalliance witl
an American heiress possessed of $150,000
in her own right, and large expectations
irom her mother.
Mr. P  at once put himself iu communication with the lady's friends, and although
"the Prince" assumed an air of indignation,
and professed ignorance of all his old associations wiih Bristol and asserted that bla
accu.er was mud, and that there must be a
great mistake somewhere, he ultimately
submitted to an arrangement whereby, although he had gone through the ceremony
of marriage, he agreed to live apart from his
wife Until he could furnish to the lady's
family satisfactory proofs of his bona tides
and of In ■■ claim to the title of Count and to
the estates of which he claimed to be possessed. By Mme means, however, he succeeded
in eluding the vigilance of the lady's friends,
and. having won the confidence ot his bride,
he induced her surreptitiously to leave her
home ami take passage on board a steamer
for Rotterdam!
'lhe flight of the couple aroused the worst
suspicions of the lAdy's friends, who at once
Intrusted Mr. P——with the task of following the fugitives, and forci ig him to surrender the ladv to  her  mother.      Mr.   P ,
after OOnSUltStion with the firm of Messrs.
("row & .ir nl.-, soliciturs, of New York,
atarted with Mr. -leuks on his somewhat
formidable commission, which they carried
out u ith promptitude and energy, and which
reunited in unquallfisd success.
Laaving New York i.i the .Servia two days
later than the fugitives, they, on arrival at
Liverpool, wired to Mr. IWnsou, solicitor of
Itrislol, to Ascertain tho whereabouts uf "the
Prince's" find wife. Following their tele*
. i-iii in a feu hours they, with Mr. Benson's
prompt assii-itunee, soon accumulated abundant proof ot "the Prince's" perfidy. Mr.
Benson had acted for the first wife s family
in tha actum already mentioned, and thus
having a clone kuowledge of "the Prince's"
ant-cedeiita. he wan in possession of information which soon led to the finding of the
firat wife iu L-.ndou. From photographs in
poeeeeston of Mr. P , the Bristol detectives fully Identified the Bristol prince with
the American count; but there was no time
to lie lost, and on Wednenday last Mr.P	
and his American lawyer crossed to Rotterdam, accompanied by the first wife and her
brother. Detective Inspector Short, and
the necessary statutory declarations and
photographs, one ofthe latter being a portrait of "the Prince" and his first wife. Arriving at Rotterdam thev had the good fortune to find thut they had anticipated the
arrival of 'the Prince's*'steamer, which was
not due until Saturday. In the mean time
they laid the facts before the American consul and secured hi** co-operation.
As soon as the Bteamer arrived Miss Billings received a polite message from the Consul requesting her attendance at his cham-
In-rs, where shortly afterward the unsuspecting "Prince" and his bride presented
themselves. After a few minutes' conversation with the consul un general topics, the
fugitive couple who had taken the name of
Mr. and Mrs. Schwar, wore astounded to see
Mr. P  and Mr. Jenka enter tbe room.
"The Prince," equal to the occasion, cried
out in broken Knglish:
"That horrid man again] Take him away!
he is mad."
But he soon became aware that there was
method in his madness when "the Prince's"
wife No. 1 appeared from an inner room,
leaning ou the arm of her brother, followed
by Detective Inspector Short. Words would
fail to describe the astonishment and dismay
exhibited by the adventnrer when confronted
by theae startling proofs. For a few minutes
only he tried to carry matters w ith a high
hand, but before such overwhelming evidence he succumbed, and, in his own words,
had to admit that the game waa up.
The unhappy heiress, murmuring, "Don't
be too bard upon him," fainted away, and
she is now returning to her friends in America, under thu oharge of Mr. .leaks.

In practice, nevertheless, he would find it
impossible to carry out the first pirt  of the
bargain, and llunsia could hardly br >ok even
bis nominal   assent   to   the    ifleoad-      For
either the tribute called  for   by  the  treaty'
would have to be levied as before on Kastern
Roumelia, in which   case  the   Routnitltans
would fail to see how the rebellion  had bettered their situation,  or the  burden   would
have to be distributed over the whole of the
expanded principality, in which   event the
natives of northern   Bub. iria,  « ho are anything but sentimental,   w<>iild   oonsider that
they   paid   altogether   too   dear   for  their
whistle.      At  to the garris-uiiig of the Bil-
kans, this is a matter of such   vital moment
to Hm-H a that we ate not s r riaed to bear
lhat the Czar's Ambaai-jdir Haa  already   insisted at Constantinople that   tbe  Sultan*!
treaty right to post troops in the pa.ses shall
be formally abrogated.
Thus wc see  that the settlement  of the
Roumelian question, even if it could be localized, would not be by any  tneana a»  easy as
it looks.    Let us  assume, notwithstanding,
that Turkey, paralyzed by the knowledge of
her military disablement,  could be brought
to waive her right to defend   her  mountain
barriers, and content herself with an uisiib-
atantial promise that the Roumelian ti ib ite
' ould at all events be paid.      It   would  at
once be manifest that  the   area of   disturb
ance could not ou such   terms   be   limited.
For King Milan, who has broken   ii;>  treaty
and who was dealt with but stingily  at Berlin, has a better right than   Priuea  Alexander to  demand that his  itfbjecte' eball   be
granted   their   historical and   ethnological
boundaries.       The   oompeosatii u   that   be

Servians belieye themselves morally entitled

just named, because Kint; Milan's ccqu *•!•

But connivance at the mutilation of Bulgaria
in the interest of Servia, which now pliantll
obeys every   impulse   from   Vienna,   could

The Chinese Problem.—Now that the C.

nun,boring several thousand—of Chinese are
being thrown out of employment, it behooves those having the care of state in
charge, to cast about them for the best
means of mitigating the evil of an overstocked labor market, which must be the
inevitable result of the cessation of railway
construction. It is quite evident that tho
opening of the railway, instead of brttenng
the situation in this particular, will, for a
few years at leaat, only tend to increase the
difficulty by affording an easier access to
this country of that class, principally, who
are nece»sarily dependent on their daily
labor. Would it not. therefore, be a wise
scheme for our local Government to charter
a few vessels and send the Chinese baik to
their native land, free. We believe very
many of them would readily avail themselves
of such an opportunity, now that work is
scarce,' and furthermore, that to return is

The exploren in the Congo Valley nre
surprised by the crudity of lite there. The
natives have no domesticated beasts of any
sort, nor do thuy raise or catch any u__imal<j
to eat, as they know nothing of flesh as
food. No semblance of clothing is worn,
and diet is prnctically confirmed to spontaneous products of the soil. Letters from
missionaries say, too, that the negroes there
are so low in mentality that any hope of
Christianizing them must he based on a long
and patient course of intellectual training.
They are too densely ignorant to comprehend
the simplest statements of doctrine.
What is known as the Priory, on high
ground at Stanmore, near Harrow, Engluml,
has heen turned into a hotel, and a coach
runs there daily from Charing Cross. The
Priory was occupied early in the century by
the first Marquis of Abercorn, who lived
then.' in grand style, and entertained all the
celehritii-s of the period. He had a peep
hole whence he surveyed n<*w guests, and if
they were women and ugly he absented him-

The production of slag wool and the in**
dug trial applications of the article appear to
be largely on the increase. By the action
of strong jets of steam the slag is transformed
into a Hbrous, whitish silicate cotton, which,
being mineral, is incombustible, like asbes-
t. a; it is advantageously and extensively
used in Pjnglrnd in the construction of new
houses with Mansard roofs, the space between the interior hi tli or panelling and tho
exterior covering of zinc, slate, or tin, being
filled with this slag wool, the effect being to
protect from the rigor of frost in winter and
intense heat in summer. It is also said to
prevent freezing and bursting of taps.spouts,
and water pipes if these are covered by the
wool in winter.
The Japan Mail reports a most remarkable preaching service held in Tokio, on
Sept. 17 and IS, in the largest theatre of that
city. The building was completely packed,
ami hundreds of ticket holders were unable
to obtain admission. The audiences ore
variously estimated at 4,500 to 0,0 <) each
day. The preaching was mostly by native
Japanese pastors, and the people listened
for four hours each day while the Gospel was
preached to them. The Mail sayB of the
services: "The large attendance, the earnest attention, with so little dissent or interruption, iu so public a place as the most
popular theatre iu Tokio, gives evidence of
a marked advance in public sentiment iu
favor of Christimity within the space of one
short year, siuce the puhlic preaching service in the Meiji Kwaido were made tie

Several of our American exchangesare
devoting their attention to the "short
hair craze'' among women, which, they
say, ia rapidly spreading all over the
country. The craze has reached Canada.
In this matter those who "go in for"
short hair do not appear to pay much
attention to the ApoBtle Paul's words,
addressed to the Corinthians: **Doth
not even nature itself tench you that, if
a man have long hair, it is a shame nnto
him? But if a woman have long hair,
it is a glory to her.'' But perhaps some
of our long-haired men and short-haired
women are not aware of the existence of
the apostolic criticism.
