"I mast bespeak silting next you on
the night," resumed Mrs. Porter; "and
then, if oui deir young friend hire,
should be it til wrong, you will be able
to enlighten me. I shall be to interested."
''1 am sure I shall bo most happy to
give you any assistance   in my power."
"Mind it's a bargain."
"J don't know how it is," said Mrs.
G-itleion to ber daughters, as they
were sitting round the fire in the evening, looking over their parts, "but I
really very much wish Mrs. Joseph
Porter wasn't coming on Thursday. I
am sure she's sclieming something."
".She can't nuke us ridiculous, however," observed Mr. Sempronius Galile-
ioo, haughtily.
The long looked-for Thursday arrived
in due course, and brought witb it, as
Mr. Gattleton, senior, philosophical!''
observed, 'no disappointments to speak
of." True, it wss yet a matter of doubt
whether Oa.sio would be enabled to
get into the dress which had been sent
for him from the masquerade warehouse. It was equally uncertain
whether the principal female singer
would be sufficiently recovered from the
influenza to make her appearance; Mr.
Harleigb, the Masaniello of the night,
was hoarse, and rather unwell, in consequence of the great quamity of lemon
and nilgai-candy he had eaten to improve his voice; and iwo flutes an ' a
violoncello had pleaded severe col.la.
What of that? the audience wero all
coining. Everybody knew his pari; the
diesaes were covered *ith tinsel and
spangles; the white plumes looked
beautiful; Mr. Evans had practiced
falling until he was limine I from h»ad
lo foot and quite perfect; I.igo waa .ure
lhat in the slabbing scene, he should
make "a decided bit." A self-taught
deaf gentleman, who had kindly offered
to bring his flute, would be a most
valuable addition to the orchestra; Minn
Jenkins's talent f..r the piano wss KM
well known to he doubted for an blatant; Mr Cape had practiced the violin
accompaniment with ber, frequently;
und Mr. Brown, who had kindly undertaken, as a few hours' notfea, to bring
his violoncello, would no doubt, man.igi"

least, there were Mrs. Joseph Po-ter
and Uncle Tom, seated in the c nli r of
the third row from the |ta0P' Mrs. P.
amusing Uncle Tom with all sorts of
stories, and Uncle 'i'oin amusing eveiv
one else by laughing most imiuoliratelv.
Ting, ting, tin?! went the prompter's
bell at eight o'clock piecisely, and dash
went lhe orchestra into the oveiture to
"The Men of Prometheus." The pii.no
forte player hainineioil away with laudable pei severance; and ibe violoncello,
which struck it at inter cala, "sounded very
well, considering.' The unfoitmaic
individual, however, who lu i undertaken lo pi iy tin* flute accompaniment

the perfect truth of thi' old a-lagc "out

near sighted, nnd bring pi reed at a considerable distance from his music
book, all he had au opportunity of
doing was in play a bar now and then
in the wrong place, and put the oilier
performers out. It is, however, but
justice to Mr. Brown to say that be
did this to adminti n. The overture,
in fact, was not unlike a race between
the different inairumenls; the piano
came in first by several bus, and the
violoncello next, quite distancing the
poor flute; for the deaf gentleman too-
too''d aw-ay quite unconscious lhat he
was at all wrong, until apprised by the
applause of the audience, that the overture was concluded. A considerable
bustle and shuffling of feet was then
heard upon tbe stage, accompanied by
whispers of "Here's a pretty go I—
whit's to be done!" etc. The audience
applauded again, by way of raising the
spirits of the performers; and then Mr.
Senipronius desired tbe prompter, in a
very audible voice, to 'clear the stage,
and ring up."
Ting, ting, tingl went the bell again.
Everybody sat down; the curtain shook;
rose sufficiently high to display several
pair of yellow hoots paddling about; antl
tbere remained.
Ting, ting, ting, went tbn bell again.
Tlie curtain was violently convulsed,
but rose no higher; the audience tittered
Mrs. Porter looked at Uncle Tom;
Uncle Tom looked at everybody, rub
bing bis hands, and laughing witb perfect rapture. After as much ringing
with the little bell as a muffin-boy wouhl
make in going down a tolerably long
street, and a vast deal of whispering,
hammeritig, and calling for n.-ila and
cord, the curtain at length rose, and discovered Mr. Sempronius Gattleton, solus
and decked for Othello. After three
distinct r unds of applause, during
which Mr. Sempronius applied bis tight
hand to his left breast, and bowed in
lhe most improved manner advanced, and
whelming   applause.    Exit   Mr. Sum.
pronius Gattleton, and curtain falls.
The audience were of course, exceedingly go d humored; tbe whole business
was a joke; anrl accordingly tbey warf-d
for an hour with the utmoat patience,
being enlivened by au interlude of rout
cakes and lemonade. It appeared by
Mr. Sernprunius's subsequent explanation, that the drlay would not have
been ao great, had it not so happened
ihat when the substitute lago had
finished dressing, and just as tbe plav
was on the poiut of commencing, the
original lago unexpectedly arrived.
The former was therefore compelled to
undress, and the latter to dress for his
part, which, as he found some difficult!
in getting into his cl then; occupied no
inconsiderable time. At last, the
tiagedy be;<an in earnest. It went off
well enough, until the third scene of
the first act. in which Oth -Ho addresses

i-uiii-iiiiici- being, that as lago could not
get on any of the stage bo- ts, in con<e

contrasted rather oddly with his richly
embroidered pantaloons. WbenOthelio
started with his arldiess to the Sena!
(whose dignity was represented by, the
Duke, a carpenter, two men engaged un
the recommendation of tbe gardener,
and a boy), Mrs Porter found the op
portunity she so anxiously sought.
Mr. Sempronius proceeded;
•'Most poi -nt, grave, sud rev rend slgnfors,

That 1 have tt'en sway Ihis old inan'a daughter,

"Is lhat right!' whispered Mrs. Portei
to Uncle Tom.
"Tell him so, then:"
"I   will.     Semi"   called out   Uncle
Tom, 'that's wrong, my bov."
' What's wrong, Uncle!" demanded
Othello, quite foig. tling the dignity of
the situation.
"You've h-ft out something.   'True I
have mariied ' "
"Oh, nh I" said Mr. S.-mpronius, en-
rleavoiii.o; to hide him confusion as much
and as ini-flictually as the audience attempted to conceal their half-sui pressed
tillering, by coughing with eMraor.lin.i
ry violence —

(Aside) Why don't ynu prompt, father!"
'Because I've minlaii my npectaclcs,"
said  poor   Mr. Gattleton, almost dead
with the heat and hustle.
"There, now it's rude am l,'"said
Uncle Tom.
"Ves, I know it is," returned the unfortunate m niager, proceeding with Ills

Uncle Tom, now completely in his cle-
iik-iiI, an.I iiiMJg.ted by the mischi vou*
Mis l'.irrer, corrected the mistklwiol
the perform.ru; suffice it to say, that
having mourned his hobby, nothing
coul.l induce him to dismount; so, during ihe whole remainder of the p'ay, he
peiformed a kind of running aecom
paniu em, by muuering everybody'"
part as it was being delivered, in an
undertone. The audieuoe were highly
amused, Mrs. Porter delighted, the per
forme.s embarrassed; Uncle Tom never
wa. better pleased in all his life; an I
Unole Tom'a nephews and nieces ha I
never, although iho declared lieirs to
his large property, so beartily wished
him ga.hcrcd to his fathers as on ths
memorable occasion.
Several other minor causes, loo,
uni'ed to damp the ardor of the
dramatis personoe. None of the performers could walk in the tights, or
move their arms in their jackets; the
pantaloons were too small, the boots
too large, and the swords of all shapes
and sizas. Mr. Evans, naturally loo tall
for scenery, wore a black velvet hat
with immense white plumes, the glory
of which was lost in "the flies;" and tho
only other inconvenience of which »m
that »hen it was off his head be could
not put it on. and when it waa on be
could not take it off. Notwithstanding
all his practice, too, he fell with his
head and shoulders as neatly through
one of the side scenes, as a harlequin
would jump thr.ugh a panel in .
Christmas pantomime. The pianoforte
player, overpowered by the extreme
beat ofthe room, fainted away at tS-
comnii ncement of the entertainments,
leaving the music of "Masaniello" to
the flute and violoncello. The orchestra complained ttrat Mr. Har'eig r
put them out, and Mr. Ilarlergh declare
that the orchestra prevented his singing
a note. The fishermen, ■> ho were hired
for the occasion, revolted to the ver.
life, positively refusing to play witbour

the morning, exhausted with Laughter,

smelling terribly of brimstone and gunpowder. The Messrs Gattleton, Senior
anil junior, retired to rest, with the
vague indeu of emigrating to Swan
Kiver early in the ensuing week.
Rose Villa has once again resumed
its wonted appearance; tin- dining-room
furniture has been replaced; the tables
are as nicely polished as formerly; the
horse hair chair.-, are ranged against the
wall, as regularly as ever; Venetian
blinds bain been fitted to every win-
do a* of the house to intercept the
prying gaze of Mrs. Joseph Porter.
The subjects of theatricals is never
mentioned in the Gattleton family un
less, Indeed, by Uncle Tom, who cannot
refrain from sometimes expressing his
surprise and regret at finding tliat Lis
nephews and ni.-rcs .-,j,jj.-;ir to have lost
the relish they once possessed for the
beautii-s of Shakspeare, and quotations
from the works of that  immortal bard.
Mathijiont is proverbially a serious
undertaking. Like an overweening
predilection for brandy and-water, it is
a misfortune into which a man easily
falls, and from which he finds it re-
markably difficult to extricate himself.
It is of no use telling a man who is
timorous on these points, that it is but
one plunge and all is over. Tbey say
the same thing at, the Old llailey, and
the unfortunate victims derive as much
comfort from the assurance in the one
case as in the other.
Mr. Watkius Tottle was a rather
uncommon compounded! strong uxorious
inclinations, and an unparalleled degree
of anti-eoniiubiul that timidity. He
was nboiit fifty years of age; stood four

in a state of single blessedness, ns

spinsters think; but the idea of mat ri
moiiv had never ceased to haunt him.
Wrapt, in profound reveries on this
never-failing theme, fancy transformed
his small parlor in Cecil street, Sinnd,
Into a neat hnnsti in the suburb.; the
half-hundredweight of coals under the
kitchen stairs suddenly sprang up into
three ions ofthe best Walls-end; his
.small French bedstead was COVPrted
into a regular matrimonial four poster;
and in the empty chair on the opposite
side of the fire place, iiiiagiiintioii seated
ll la-mi il'ul young lady, with n very
little independence or will of her own,
and a very largo independence under u
will of her father's.
"Who's there!" inquired .Mr. Writ kins
ToMIe, as a gentle tap at his room door
disturbed these meditations one evening.
"Tottle my dear fellow, bow do you
do!" said a short, elderly gentleman,
with a grutlish voice, bursting into the
room, and replying   to the question by
asking another,
'•Told you I should drop in some
evening," said the short gentleinnn, as
he delivered his hat into Tottle's hand,
after a little struggling and dodging
"Delighted to see you I'm sure," said
Mr. Watkins Tottle, wishing internally
that his visitor had "dropped in" to
the Thames at the bottom of the street
instead of dropping into bis parlor.
The fortnight was nearly up, and Wat-
kins was hard up
"How is Mrs. Gabriel Parsons!" inquired Tottle.
"Quite well, thank you," replied Mr.
Gabriel Parsons, for that was ibe name
the short gentleman reveled in. Here
there -as a pause; the short gentleman
looked at the left liob of the fireplace;
Mr. Watkins Tottle stared vacancy out
of countenance.
"Quite well," repeated the short
gentleman, when five minutes had expired "I may say remarkably well."
And he rubbed tbe palms of his hands
as bard as if he were going to strike a
light by friction.
"What will you take!" inquired
Tottle, with the desperate suddenness
of a man who knew that unless the
visitor took his leave, he stood very
litile chance of   taking anything  else.
"Oh, I doh't know. Have you any

for all this was gaining time. "I had

he would not be averse to brandy.
And Mr. Watkius Tottle, lighting n
flat candle very ostentatiously; and displaying an immense key, which be
longed lo the street door, but which,
for the sake of appearance, occasionally
did duty in an imaginary wine-cellar;
left the room to mti-oat hii landlady to
charge their glasses, and charge them
in the bill. The application was successful; the spirits were speedily called

gentlemen mixed their grog; and then
Mt rozily down before the fire—a pair
or shorts, airing tlieiusi Ivos.
"Tottle," said Mr. Gabriel Parsons,
"you know my way—off hand, open,

what good, people have about 'em, and
the otlier is much about the taint-
thing as pinking a white cotton stocking to make it look like a silk one.
Now listen to what I'm going to say."
Here the little gentleman paused,
and look a long pull at his brand-and-
water. Mr. Watkins Tottle took a
sip of his, stirred the fire, and assumed
an air of profound attention.
"It's of no use bumming and ha'ing
about ihe matter," resumed the short
gentleman; "you want to get married."
"Why replied Mr. Watkins Tottle,
evasively; for Iin trembled violently, and
felt a mdden tingling throughout his
whole frame; "why—I should certainly— at   least,   I   think ' I   should

end of the matter. Bo you want

'Vou admire the sex!"
"I do."
"And you'd like to be married?"
"Then you shall be. There's an end
of that." Thus saying, Mr. Gabriel
Persons took a pinch* of snnff, and
mix.-rl another glass.
"Lot me entreat, you to be more explanatory," said Tottle. "Really, as
the j arty principally interested, I can
not consent to be disposed of in this
"I'll tell vou," replied Mr. Gabriel
Parsons, wa-m'ng with the subject, and
the brandy and-water—"1 know a lady
-nlrc's stopping with my wife now—
who's jfumt lhe thing for you. Well
educated; talks French; plays tbe
piano; knows a good dead about flowers
and shells, and all that sort of thing;
aud Irrrs Ave hundred a year, with an
Uncontrollable power of disposing of it,
by her lust will and testament."
"I'll pay my addresses to her," said
Mr. Watkins Tottle. "She Isn't very
young—is she/'1
"Not very, just the thing for you —
I've sairl that already.''
"What colored hair has the lady!"
Inquired Mr.   Watkins Tottle.
"Egad, I hardly recollect,'' replied
Gabriel with coolness. "Perhaps I
ought to have observed, at lirst, she
wean a front."
"A what?" ejaculated Tottle,
"One of those things, with curls,
along here?'' said Parsons, drawing ■
straight line across his forehead, just
hit   bis eves, in  illustration   of his
meaning,    "I know lhe fronts I.lack; I
anl speak quite positively about ber
own hair; because unless one walks be
hind her, and entches a glimpse of il
under her bonnet, one seldom sees it;
but 1 should aoy thnt it was "rather''
lighter than the front -n shade of a
grayish tinge, perhaps."
Mr. Watkins Tottle looked as if he
had certain misgivings of mind. Mr.
Gabriel Parsons perceived it, and
thought it would be safe to begin the
next attack without delay.
"Now, were you ever in love, Tottle?"
he inquired.
Mr. Watkins Tottle blushed up to
the eyes, ami down to the chin, and ex
hibi'ed a most extensive combination
of colors as he confessed the soft impeachment.
"I suppose you popped tho question
more than once, when you were young
—I lieg vour pardon—a younger—
man," said Parsons.
'Never in my life!" replied, his
friend apparently indignant at being
suspected of snob nt act, "Never!"
The fact is, that I entertain, as you
know peculiar opinions on these subjects. I am not afraid of ladies, young
or nl.l fnr from it; but, I think, that,
in compliance with the custom ofthe
present day, they allow too much
freedom of speech and manner to
marriageable men. Now, the fact is
that anything like this easy freedom I
never eould acquire; and as I am al
ways afraid of g. .ing too far, I aui
generally, I dare sav, considered formal
and cold."

SATURDAY, JUNK 20, 1885.
The Mainland Guardian says:—
"Robson's policy is knavery, and the**
are its component parts:—Forty mill
ions not saved by the Settlement Bill;
seven hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars given to Crocker A Oo. to take the
Island off onr hands; three and one-
half million acres in the Peace River
country given away without consideration; the Kootenay country given to
Ainsworth A Oo.; sixty thousaud acre*
given to Oils Wright; and several
thousand acres of white pine forest
given to the Speaker of the local House
and his friends. Placed side by side
with a picture of the plundered squatters, these particles present the mind
with some idea of "tub policy" that
ruined the Province and decorated
Bird-cage walk."
The printers in the Standard office
at Viotoria are making laws for the
scribblers; aud a great many clauses
in the new law are just. The men
work by contract, and they declare
tliat delays caused by the stupidity
which is sometimes to be found in the
sanctum, must be paid for by the stock
holders. Time wasted in "waiting for
copy" is te be psrid tar, and ten cents
shall be charged for each error in copy
not properly corrected. This law will
exolude the uneducated from the editorial department, or make good wages for
the men in places where scholars from
the public schools are employed to write
paragraphs or prepare copy. What is
just ought to be law; and no sensible
man will object to that part of the law
which we have just quoted; but the
employer of tbe proof-reader should
have ten cents for every word omitted
from the original copy. It is evident
that tho laws of the printing office
should be corrected and improved by a
muster hand.
The people of Victoria believe they
have more power than the Czar of
Uiiasia. They give orders to the Lieutenant-Governor, and merely exhibit
their insolence. If they had- asked, as
t fnvor, what they demand as a right,
it is quite possible tbat he would con-
sent to do what they wish; but the
Governor cannot descend to be ruled
by Tom, Dick or Harry. It is his
dutv to obey the law and to see that it
ia enforced, but it is not his duty to
oSe-f a crowd, a uiob, or a minister.
Smithe, Robson, Duck, and Davie,
have had a great jollification. At
Clinton the policy of knavery was
loudly applauded, because 120,000
J*ve been givon for a road to Hat
Creek. At Maple Ridge "the policy."
was also applauded because the Honor
able John gave (500 more than was
voted for improvements. The independent electors of Clinton and Maple
Riilge are bought; they endorse the
policy of plunder, and acknowledge
that the almighty dollar is the modern'
god, and low chicanery the high priest.

presenting in the midst of poverty the

more quotations. The picture reminds
us of the question—Is the whole world

Astute politicians in Loudon declare
that Gladstone made arrangements for
his own defeat, anil that the whole fuss
about war with Russia is only a mist
made to conceal mistakes from old
John Bull. Salisbury is trying to form
a ministry, and Gladstone and his patty
are raking a holiday and laughing at
the modern Hotspur, Lord Randolph
Churchill, who proposes to wake Lord
lieresford, the famous Captain of the
Condor,  Secretary of State for War.
Great changes are contemplated by
the Conservative party. Lord Randolph Churchill insists on sending Sir
Stafford Northcote to the House of
Lords, and of making Sir Michael
Pi inks (teach leader of the Commons.
Without the Irish, Lord Salisbury

t,ui h» refuses to purchase their support
l,y a promise not to enforce tho passing
of au Irish coercion bill.
It is impossible to manage the Irish;
they appear to be the representatives
of the natural law, which is—change.
In perpetual motion, like boiling water,
there is no knowing what they may do.
They know that an Irish nation cnuld
not exist for three weeks in Europe;
tho idea of living under the protectorate of France would make them al)
mad; threaten them with annexation
to Germany or Russia, and thou you'll
see something like a storm. To keep
the peace in Ireland it is absolutely
necessary to be at war. Five millions
Of them are in England, and they are
as loyal as the people of Yorkshire
In fact, tho Irish arc the greatest puzzle under the sun. If England were
defeated in battle to-morrow by France
or Russia, the whole Irish nation would
bo in mourning. More than half the
population of the Island are the de-
scendants of Englishmen; all the great
leaders of revolt have had English ancestors. The whole population is
proud of the Empire, and every day
threatening to destroy it The Protestant Dean, Swift, was their patron saint
for a hundred years; and to-day he
stands nearly as high in their estimation as St. Patrick himself. The Dean
was fit to' be their saint, for he was
always a little crazy, hot he knew them
well, and told them long ago thst they
were lunatics who ''killed each other
for the Jove of Goat"   In bit will—
"He left tbem all tbe coin be had
To found a house for fools ami mad:
To show by one satiric touch
No nation needed it so much."
Bow to satisfy the Irish is one of
the great puzzles; they were evidently
intended to keep the world in hot water.

Quotations from the history of "Peck's

The people in New York are making
great preparations for the election of

The Hon George Lothrop, who has
been appointed Minister to Russia, gave,
in a speech made at Lansing, Mich., the
other day, some interesting information
with reference to a fortunate Russian
Admiral. During the cri ical period of
the war of the rebellion, just after the
release of Mason and Slidell. the Czar
sent the Admiial with a fleet ami sealed
orders into American waters. When
the sealed orders were opened it was
found ihat the Admiral had instructions
to open the batteries of ihe Russian fleet
against the .neinies of the Unio.i
Wasn't he a lucky Admiral? If England and America had come to blows
he would be down among the fishes irr
five minutes, and the fleet along with
him. The minister assured- his audience
that Russia as well as the United States
feels the impulse of civilization, and are
moving directly forward to lhe great
common glory of humanity. What is
that? The Almighty dollar, or despotic

General Miles is a Christian gentleman; without firing ,i shot he has tamed
Moses and the large band of braves
which followed his banner through Oregon and Washington Territory. The
process was very simple. The General
is not a politician or a land speculator,
but a kind-hearted judge who carries an
excellent sword. Moses has agreed to
move to thcColville reservation, and to
abandon a vast district known as the
Columbia reservation. He secures $85,-
000 and a good title to the new land,
which is excellent.
A later report says Moses was moved
from the Columbia reservation to make
room for a vast population that is pre
pared to settle on the borders of British Columbia in the Big Bend'counlry.
The son of Henry Ward Beccher has
been appointed collector of customs at
Port Townsend.
Readers of the English papers will
note from time to time that a party is
rapidly coming to the surface which
advocates the doctrine of what is called
"fair tiatle." This is Biraply a re-iti-
trodffction of a modified protective,
tariff against the goods of all nations
levying prohibitive duties on articles
of English manufacture. The free
trade doctrines were very good at the
time they were first introduced; it was
boldly stated at the titnc by their advocates, that in the course of a few
years free trade would be universal.
How completely this idea has been exploded, everybody knows. Nations,
where tariffs were never previously
thought of, have now adopted the
heaviest duties, and nations whose
tariffs were previously moderate have
so increased their rates as to exclude
English manufactured goods almost
entirely. Not only is this the fact, but
by the fostering of home manufacture
in those protected countries, aided by
cheap labor, they are now able to undersell England in her home markets, and
the result is stagnation in her trade
and lack of employment for her people.
Even in the face of such a serious
state of things, the Coblen - Bright
disciples attempt to -show that free
trade is   best, an  absurdity that is
daily becoming more evident. These
free-trade fanatics are very like the
teetotalers who advocate abolition;
they have so nursed and petted one
idea that they can understand or believe in nothing else. It is very evident that a great change is impending
in British fiscal systems; and probably
no moving cause in that direction will
be greater than the pit-sent movement
for Federation of the Empire. The
sentimental trash thnt is preached by
many of the advocates of fedeiatinn—
principally free-traders—will soon give
place to the more sensible ideus nf
business men, who see in the adaptation
of our tariff to the welfare of the
colouies the inducement for federation.
If the English free trade was only ex
fended to our own colonies, and the
colonics in return gave a like advantage to English goods, the ties binding
the colonies to the mother country
would be at once drawn closer. We
can get all the raw material and food
wc require from our colonies, and they
in return would be glad to have always
an open market for their products.
They would also appreciate the motherly affections of England in confining
this advautage to her own family, instead of, as at present, placing them on
a level with every other alien country,
and by such selfish legislation weaken-
ing the ties of consanguinity, and leading them to adopt the . same selfish
principles. As long as Manchester
politics rule the destinies of England,
so long will the federation of the em
pire be an impossibility; hence, the
agitation of the question without the
mainspring. British interests all over
the world—first, means fair trade and
federation. Trade and Manchester
shoddy will render federation out
fo the question. It is a fortunate
thing for both of them, that these two
questions have cropped up at tho same
moment—fair trade and federation—
as they will by their joint efforts aid
each other in attaining their joint object—protection from foreign tariffs.
Free trade doctrines, preached by men
like Bright,- who made money out of
the badly paid labor of the operatives,
are not sufficiently substantial to replace bread, and when the English
workman has come to the conclusion
that the doctrines of any set of men
are robbing him of his rights and
preventing his obtaining the means of
earning a livelihood, he usually makes
short work of them.
Honest John is very wrothy with
this paper in exposing his true inwardness, and failing to fiiid anything
better to attack us with, he reverts to
the mis print that appeared some years
ago accidentally, being the only shaft
he can launch at us: There is probably
no way in which ho could better demonstrate the care with which this paper
is prepared for the public, than the.
miserable attempt to base a defense on
a typographical error, which appeared
four or five yean ago; But the brazen
impudence of the man in trying to defend himself from blame for the passing of a measure of which he was said
to have been the head and front, is
simply disgraceful. Why, Mr. Allen,
one of his own supporters, told him at
the time that his advocacy of the
shameful bill was sufficient to destroy
all confidence in the Government.
Then, this very honest man goes on to
say that our attack must fall to the
ground; lirst, because he chooses to
insert in his article some very erroneous
and ridiculous figures; and next, bo-
cause the company propose, from
reasons to be learned when the House
meets, to give back some 710,000 acres!
Supposing the company were moved by
some conscientious scruples to restore
such an enormous quantity of the I ind,
that would in no way exonerate Honest
John for his partic', t'.inii in such an
atrocious alienation of the people's
heritage; rather it would show more
clearly, the enormity of the crime
committed by a Government paid by
the people to manage their estate, who
had given away so much, that it waa
absolutely given back as too much. It
is well known that the land is extremely valuable, and will one day
afford homes and profitable employment for a large number of miners,
lumbermen and agriculturists; so that
we trust the representatives of the
people will strictly investigate the
causes of this very fishy attempt to
evade obligations, and, if possible,
rescind the whole of the gift. Surely
the people, of this Province have
amongst them a sufficient number of
intelligent men to see the shocking
character of this transaction, and that
they will take care that their representatives vote in a manner commensurate with the nature of this OHtrage.
It is quite evident that Honest John
feels very uncomfortable. There is
aome ugly hitch in the transaction that
he wants to cover up.    HU childish
attempt to smear the leader of the
opposition with the mud in which he is
encased, shows plainly that be would
fain make it appear tbat there was
more than himself to blame, and in
making a throng of knaves he may
escape a great part of the onus. But
such paltry trickery—his entire stock
iu trade, besides hia facility for windy
harangues that mean 11..thing—will not
save him. The very handsome residence he is building and the profitless
paper he ia publishing, are witnesses
against him. All his wriggliug will
only send him deeper in the mire and
present him in a more contemptible
plight to the people he has wronged.
We sincerely trust that amongst the
penalties for his faults, restitution will
be one of them.—Guardiar.
If anyone imagines that the apparent
truce in war provocative questions is
likely to load to permanent peace, he
is only deceiving himself. The whole
of Europe is now occupied with war
preparations, and is little better than
a great camp. England at this mriiuout
is engaged in preparing war material
on a Bcale never liefore approached.
Her gun factories, her small arm factories, her powder and ammunition
factories, her navy yards and the yards
of her private ship builders are thronged with workmen, and the labor is
unceasing. It is the same in France,
iu Germany, in Russia, in Italy, in
Sweden, in Denmark — everywhere.
The terrible Eastern question is again
looming up, and this time will certainly
be settled as far as the "sick man's"
heritage is concerned. Bismarck is determined to consolidate Germany, and
to do so hi must thrust the Hapsburg
empire among the Slavs. He wants to
secure for Austria the whole of the
Balkan peninsula, in order that thn
whole of the German portion of what
is now the Austrian empire, may be
incorporated with the empire of the
Hohenzollerns. In order to accomplish
this, his scheme was to induce England
to accepr Egypt as her share of the
Turkish plunder, and leave him free to
help Austria to seize Constantinople.
This England refused to do, and to revenge himself on the latter power,
Bismarck is making everything as dis
agreeable for Great Britain as possible.
Bismarck's scheme has been perfectly
patent to Russia for a long time. She
has, in her usual way, been pretending
the ..nearest friendship for Germany,
but no one is deceived. She has, how-
ever,beeu more successful with France;
and that power, led to believe thut her
only chance of securing revenge on her
arch enemy, is to ally herself with
Russia, will commit the supreme folly
of risking her existence in a great
struggle to help Russia to beat Gar
many and Austria. Thn only obstacle
in the way of this grand Rcheme is
England; she would certainly object to
either Russia or France obtaining any
more territory from Turkey, and she
equally objects to Austria establishing
herself on the Golden Horn, as placing
too great an advantage in the hands of
a power that would be swayed by
Germany. It was for this reason that
the war in the Soudan has been terminated for the present, and it is uot
likely to be resumed for some time to
come, lhe Introduction of the Italians has proved, so far, a comph te
failure; so the tribes of the Nile border will be allowed to cut one another's
throats for soni? time longer. The
patched up peace at Afghanistan was
only a measure of present expediency;
and Russia will be invited to get out
of Central Aria by and by, when such
invitation may lie used to divert her
armies from other conquests. As for
France, she is hastening the completion
of her very powerful fleet, under the
impression that she will he a match for
England, and occupy her fleet elsewhere
than about the Dardanelles, Wo are
sorry for France; she deserves a better
fate; but it is only thu eonsequence of
casting in her lot with Russia. As for
the Muscovite empire, it will be so
completely crippled beforo the struggle
is over that many years will elapse
before it can again pretend to a high
European status, and will lie then used
as a means of curbing some power that
may be aiming at universal supremacy.
The great game of European politics
will he ever thus played. A period of
success will always be the prelude to an
attempt to secure domination, and that
effort will always produce the alliance
of powers to crush the pretender.
Hall's Hair Renewer.
Honest John, like a vendor of quack
nostrums, tries to deceive the lieges by
an article in his own paper, in which
he pretends to be highly flattered by
the reception he received at the various
settlements, on his late visit, with the
object of buying votes. We need
hardly say that his account of his success is pure invention, and that the
facts are quite the reverse of what he
has stated. The settlers roundly told
him that the sums he was giving them
were simply what they were entitled
to, and that they accorded him no
thanks. They told him that they required so much, and if he gave it to
them he was only doing his duty; but
if he decided on refusing the money,
they could wait till men were at the
head of affairs who were guided by
honesty and justice. In this they were
perfectly correct. The sums they asked
were only such as were reasonable,
compared with the taxes they pay,
but were in nowise commensurate with
what they were entitled to by ihe sale
of the Graving Dock at Esquimau.
That vile public robbery was consummated by the votes of Mainlanders,

disbursed entirely on the Mainland,
when iu fact not one dollar has been,
or ever will be, spent for Mainland
account. The sums now being doled
out to the settlements in the hope of
buying their votes, are a small portion
of the proceeds of the land aud timber
sides to foreigners, and the heavy and
inequitable taxes collected on the Mainland. Ro far from the sums which
Honest John would fain have our settlers believe aro the result of the high
opinion he has of them, are not a tithe
of the sums which are theirs by right.
But honest John has one person in his
eye, who must be cowed if everyone
else should starvr:—that is, Honesc
John himself. Temperance pictures
and temperance lectures may gull a few
ignorant fanatics, but happily they
form but a small section of the voters
in ihis district. Long, frothy harangues
aud buttery words have gone down in
this district till they are worthless, and
nothing less than honesty and fair
dealing will have the slightest effect
here. Roads are impassable and farmer's children aro without education,
while Honest John iu spending their
money on the Island and building a
palace for himself. The Kootenay bill
and the Settlement bill were good
measures for Honest John, but a reckoning is in store for him that will
change his opinion of these schemes
Plunder is a very useful thing when a
man can get away with it.

This performance is supposed to have
some influence with the ruler of salmon and

Conover was elected Secretary. Mr. Howse
addressed the meeting nt some length, setting forth iu a clear and forcible manner the
object of the proposed association, und tbe
manifold advantages, individually as well as
collectively, likely *o accrue therefrom.
Brief but well timed addresses were delivered by a majority of the gentlemen present,
nil expressing harmonious support of tbe
movement; whereupon it was moved and
carried thut n provisional committee, consisting of Motors, (iilboit, Oowdrby, and
Ijognn, ho appointed to draft a constitution
and by-laws for the association.
On motion, au executive committee of
seven, including the provisional committee,
was appointed, with powor to net iu behalf
of the association when not in suasion.
Messrs. Lnndboin, Taylor, Howse, and
Meek, were chosen as such committee.
The Association will convene tbis (Saturday) 8 o'clock p.m., nt the name place, when
it is expected that|the several committees will
be prepared to submit their reports, and
there should be a full attendance. It is confidently predicted that much substantial
benefit will flow from this league, and we
sincerely hope and trust that every good
citizen of the place will extend his undivided
support and influence to the grand movement.

The Railroad :n thk Selkirk Ranoe.—
Our special correspondent at Ottawa says:
"Tbe syndicate contemplate the abandonment of that portion of the railway which
passes through the Selkirk Range, as the
grade is a d.mgerous incline. A uew road
sixty-two miles in length must be made to
supply the place of the air-line up hill."
The new road may be regarded as a memorial
in the wilderness, made to co-nmeuiorate
Major Rogers and Mr. Van Home. Our
correspondent Bays Uus gentleman will retire
from the office of vice-president, and rumor
says he will take the place of the Hon.
John's son-in-law as chief engineer of tbe
Island Railway. These circumstances throw
a new light on the genius that directs railroad building in this Province, and illustrate tlie skill of tlie great engineer wbo
proposed to extend the line to Caul Hc.rbor
and to connect tbat place witb the Island by
a steam ferry. Give Mr. Van Home enough
of money and ho will undertake to make a
railroad to the moon. His failure iu the
Selkirk Range was a mere trifle that cost
only three million dollars.
A Wondkrful Pump.—A new pump, for
which it is the intention of the owners,
Messes. H. W. Wakellos and 0. J. Farrow,
of Adelaide, Australia, to apply for u patent,
has beeu on view at the Arab Steed Hotel,
Hutt street. The owners claim that by
means of tbis pump water can be raised to
the snifacL. from almost any depth with a
smaller expenditure of force than by means
of any other water-lifter yet invented. The
apparatus is a double-action force pump, und
tne peculiarity of its construction is that the
plungers are stationary and the barrels work
up and down. Tbe sample on view was
affixed to the wall un the hotel aud elevated
water from a tauk on the ground to the roof
top, a height of 2o feet. The pipis were
fixed on a temporary frame-woik between
rollers, and at ee.ch stroke moved up and
down about 18 inches. They are fastened
to a eivssbar, which winks on tbe balance
principle, aud us one ascends the other dc-
sconds- and the welg'itof the one descend-
Ing helps to raise the other. Tie plungers
are fixed to a croj-slw-iti. ..bout two leet
above the water, and as tiie barrels nr cylinders which are attached to the pipes rise
alternately, enclosing the plunger or piston,
the ua'er drawn into the barrel by tlie do" n
stroke in foicQpl through a valve Into pipes,
and flows out at the top The principle is
similar to that of Hixter's patent, but, unlike the system adopted by that maker, the
weight nf water in the tubes facilitates instead of hindering the working of tho pump.
In the caae of unusually deep wells only the
lower portion of the tubing will be made
movable, aud, beiug connected with the
upper or fixed tubes hy n parking box, will
be worked from the surface by lever rods.

quite unintentional, coincidence that the

In the same despatch Lord Graiivill*-
aver.'ed with the utmost pmimeneMB tbat
England would not accept Oeti. Komrtioff's
account of the Kushk River affair as final.
Vet this is just what Kngland has iu fact
been brought to do. For, alth ugh M. d.
Oiers professed, after nimy delays, to acquiesce in the proposal to ascertain the truth
by arbitration, it w*as not until the situation
had bam ao much changed tliat nothing waa
left to arbitrate upon. After tiie Cat had
made it plain that he, at all events, regarded
Komaroffs report as couc!usi.e, and should
richly recompense bis tertlcee, and after
Euglaud bad agreed to waive all claim to
Penjdeh, which had bofii the prize contended for, then, indeed, the Russian Foreign
Office consented to give tho Gladstone
Ministry the semblance of a pretext for recanting their bold words by submitting to
arbitration a purely sp-culathe question
which events had debarred from affecting
in the least the treatmeut of the Russian
commander or the adjustment of the boundaries.
These despatches Bupply ample warrant
for the opinion formed by many observers on
both sid,; of the ocean, that war was the
logical and almost inevitable outcome of the
sharp antagonism between the positions
taken by Russia and great Britain during
tho four weeks following the Penjdeh incident. It ia tun: that the event has not
borne out their prevision, aud perhaps the
vacillation shown in the Soudan should have
udmonished tbem that with the present
British Government official declarations of
deliberate purpose meant next to nothing,
and are perhaps put forward for no other
end than to avert public condemnation for
breaches of faith committed in the pa-t.
But the Gladstone Ministry will never be
able to cry Wolf! effectually again. Everyone is now pretty well convinced that the
pressure of uo circumstances, however
ominous and urgent, could be relitd ou to
provoko an unflinching oonrae of actim.—

about four hours after the <*c* urreuce, it was
found tliat one side of bis head was completely battered in. Thru cur camp was
startled by the news tbat Sam Pratt) one of
tho most respected anil Inoffensive men on
Moudie's, wss murdered, and that the
supposed culprit had esoaped lutoSwainlaod.
It appears that a fi-jht tuok phne between
the Kaffirs employ-d by tbe Pioneer Company. Their huu are situated cl<<se to
Pratt's residence. Owing to tbe great dis
tui'baucj bo (Pratt) went out of his hut to
qnlet them, and was obliged to use a stick,
and bai.dled a'few of them rather severely,
They d sported -ind went to a canteen close
by, an I returned to their huts a^ai:i about
10 o'clock in tiie night, making a greater
low than ever. As they would not listen to
i.i- r 'monstrances he came out with a stick,
and went to one of the huts where the
greatest row was going on, and hammered
tht in all round. In the souffle some euoll ot
the ttre which was burning in the hut set
the hut alight. They then informed their
masters that Pratt bud wilfully burnt the
hut. Several of thnn came down to the
scene of disturbance, and one of them
named Norris brought his gnu witb bim,
aud whilst Pratt was atill busy witb some
of the Kaffirs close to his hut, a shot ■-..-
fired, Wblcb killed Pratt on the spot.     Nm*

dltohargi of thu gun was accidental."
Thk Rihk oka Pbopbstjms. There had
been much agitation amongst the natives of
tiie Ilokiauga district ou account uf tho
rise of a prophetess amongst thorn. Her
name is Mete Tupia, and site aays the end
of the world is.it hsud. Sacrifices Iind been
made of dogs, sheep, and other animals,
and it was aaid that a human sacrifice was
intended, oue young girl being quite willing
to be Offered up for the sins of the people.
The police, however, were instructed by the
Gtaverument to watch what was going on,
and to interfere tl there was any breach of
the law. Several hundred liatiVM were assembled, and they were selling their p sees*
sions, end even their lands, at a ruinous sacrifice, under the impression that tho world
would s< on bu destroyed. It was feared
tbere would be great distress among these
natives during tbe furthcoming scaso. .
Some of the settlers in the district were
much alarmed, not knowing what turn the
fanaticism might take. The Maoris, as well
as the Kaffirs, are subject to these religious
and prophetic manias, and they have occurred at intervals during oar whole knowledge of them.
Much of the latest news from the German
African Colonies has been of a very saddening nature. The terrible climate of tlie
West Coast has been playing havoc, not
only among the leaders of tbe Genwrn Colonial Expeditions, but also among the sailors and marines of the German Navy engaged along the coasts of the new settlements.
The question how to obtain a military force
adapted for tlie protection ofthe West African Colonies is now attracting much attention in Berlin. As Germans cannot endure
the climate, as a rule, more than three
months, it has been attempted to organize a
force of natives, but the experiments in the
way of drilling them on board German vessels in African waters, accordingto tbe Berlin correspondent of the "Standard," have
utterly failed. It is now proposed to bring
over a number of blacks to Germany, and to
train them for service in the Colonies. But
this, it is evident, will be a rather expensive

Up to that date the place must certainly have been ns undesirable a town to

was nothing to mitigate the blinding glare
of the sun or the Intolerable radiation of the
heat from the fissured surfaee of the hard-
baked earth. The h.it winds swept across a
wide expanse of scorching country, bringing
with them clouds of all-penetrating dust.
In the winter there were no natural ini-rui*
of breaking the force or diminishing the in
clemency of tbe gales which came howling
down from the north. But tbe corporstiou

In a committee of the Vale of White

There is a postman in one of the suburbs
of London who has lately been put to sorious
inconvonieuce by the extraordinary conduct
of a greyhound belonging to one of his neighbors. No sooner does he start on his rounds
than the dog sets off also. When the postman drops a newspaper into the box the dog
stops still, waits till the postman is a good
distance off, then endeavors to force his way
iuto the house. If the door is locked ho foi-
lows his friend again, and waits his opportunity lor making a second attempt. At
long-h lie succeeds. He seizes the paper in
lilt in .nth and dnrtsoff at full speed. The
postman has never been able to discover
wuetji* does with his stolen goods. He
f llmv.d him once,but the dog was too quick
in hia movements to allow himself to be
anight. Tbis conduct is extremely awkward for the poor postman, who on more

The province of New Brunswick has a

whloli there is the smallest t,u nitity of veg-

It seems that the iSuakim-Berbci
railway is to be sbrindoned. The navvies have already stopped work, and
the seventeen miles of r.ilway cou-
strucrtedjare, therefore, to remain an
appropriate momoriul of British intervention inthe Soudan. Political philosophers ask what more fitting monument
. I ill-considered and resultless action
lliere could be than a railway begun in
ignorance, dropped in a few miles and
feruling nowhere. Such a gigantic ab-
frii-ilily is too grotesquely farcical for
ruri-e. It is known that the evacuation
nt i he Soudan will be attended with an
immediate relapse of the country into
ii" former condition. The effect of
liigiish interference will pass from the
•riilivc mind with the departure of the
Ki'gllsh troops and leave no more trace

A wirter in tho Pall Malt Oatette, says of
Edinburgh: To a strauger who selects --din
burgh as s place to live in, there is practically no society, such as oue can readily have in moat cities. The attention of
the natives is taken up with petty church
squabbles and professional jealousies. In
days gone by—in the days of Jeffrey snd
Cockburn—Edinburgh was a place to live
in and tn enjoy. It is not so now, and this
has been brought about by its theological
hairsplitting and religious intolerance. It
is now nothing more nor less than a big
school, where our boys can bo taught everything on earth save good manners.
