bullying tone that the Irish counsel had

slig.tly overdone. But I have no
doubt there was a good deal of humbug
in the air.
When tlie'Ilttle judge came to the
"boltingn," ho took the fence like •
man, blind though it was. It wa* perfectly absurb lo supp-ae that straw or
anything else could be sold iii such un-
liusines—like way, and he coolly put
our evidence on one side. How long
lie went on I dint know. Hut *s the
butirher did, who got red in the face
and ran out of our house the other day
when my wife told him the mutton was
not fit to eat, explaining his action
by saying that "ho couldn't trust himself to speak," even so did I. I had a
horse at Tattersa l's I was trying to
sell that afternoon ; and thinking, by
the way the little judge summed up,
that /should have to find the money
for Bunsby's hotel hill, and for tbe bk-
penses of the little white-haired Jack-
in-the-box, for Ta.tersall'o I departed.
When I got back to the hotel for
dinner, I found the agent's son awaiting to tell me tbat the jury had given
us a verdict at once. The naughty
little judge had, however, given Bunsby
leave to appeal—perhaps he could not
help himself. Bunsby and I naturally
"refreshed" our counsel for eighteen
months. One day, when 1 had clean
forgntten the whole thing, came a telef
gram to say we.bad won. I have heard
that the manufactured article denomin
au-d "boilings" cost Bunby over £20
per ton, ami that he has be-n heard to
say that he would not have had it
happen "for 300 golden guineas." But
1 hud a narrow escape; and if ever I
go to law again. I'll take care (unless
I am in the wrong) that it is about a
matter on which judge, counsel, and
jury are likely to know something.
Without this, law is really a little too
much of a lottery. I will never say a
, word optin egainst trial by jury. I had
previously imngined that a jurv was a
superfluous encumbrance, and that
what a wise, upright, and honest judge
could not settle was likely to be too
inucli for twelve men so far below him
in attainments. But I have changed
all that. I will certainly never forget
that there ere two sides to everything,
or that clever people pride theins-lves
on finding two, and call that being

I have met people who do not be-
liovein mad dogs—rather, who do not
believe in the communication of coiine
madness to human beings. These
sceptics have explained their unbelief
by saying that nervous people, having
been bitten, have frightened thenmelve.
into excited conditions of mind and
body from which they have died, and
ihat they needed not to have suffered
at all if they could have prevented ap-
I'li-lii-iisiini of the evil from overmaster

the dread of having imbibed so terrible
;i disease as hydrophobia must he
r-ufiieiently appalling. I doubt, bow-
ever, whether mere terror (though it
might do it now and then) could fre-
quently produce the symptoms. We
sn list., 1 am afraid, admit that the
disease is coin municnlile. So believing,
I have been well pleased with the
regulations that have been in force in
London during the .ast few months.
The suprtma lex certainly demands that
reasonable precautions should be constantly taken against this very terrible
evil. And I think that moat with
whom I have spoken on the subject,
quite agree with me in thinking tbat
the restrictions are in a general way-
just and proper mly that they ought
not to be enforced against their dogs.
Theirs are notoriously healthy, well
cared for, sweetly tempered ani<nals, to
incommode which is a shame and a sin.

■Sept. 16, 1885
poisoned bite has been inflicted by
nimnl    well  known   to the person
n, and believed to have been   in a
t-ct 1 v sane   condition, and to have
no communication with rabid dogs,

I am looking,   as I write,   at a tear
old when I got marked, and I bad oot been
particularly forbidden by my relation
ever to go into or near a certain en
closure where some formidable dogt
were known to be kept, for tbe bad a
dread of dogs in general, aud a horror
to those dogt in particular. I allowed
u-yaerf to <* enticed by other childt-en
into this forbidden area, wbicb wat a
nice place to play in, and tbere it wat
that I got my wound. The doctor bad
to be sent for to platter it up, and, of
course, I was strictly questioned at to
the casualty. I knew that I had lieen
disobedient, and gave at tint a wrong
account of the affair ao far at the scene
of it wat concerned. But whatever
may bare been my love of fiction, I
was not clever at it in thosedays. My
narrative broke down. I speedily bad
to confess that 1 lad been in the forbidden precincts ; but of course I stuck
to it that tho dogt bad nothing to do
with my wound. I ttuck to it in vain.
A* I had lieen untruthful as to the
place, it wot not unfairly judgej tbat f
might have been to concerning tbe
cause of ray hurt. My relative made
herself very miserable, through her
misgiving that I had been bitten. Yet
she was politic, and would not press me
too hard while I wat in the beat of in
sitting. She rather bore her horrible
suspicion for a while, till general discussion of the case had subsided. Then
she plied me craftily with sudden remarks, with offered bribes, through
teachers, through other boys, uting
every art to prove the truth of that
which she to much dreaded. Poor
°oul! I could never reassure her; and
after I was too old to be thought
capable of inventing a falsehood about
such a matter, sbe ttill fancied that I
might be continuing the deception in
order to spare her alarms. During my
early youth she often told me that ber
mind could never be at ease concerning
that unlucky tell-tale scar. Hut she
saw me grow to manhood without exhibiting any tendency to bite; and so,
I hope, .attained in time to tbe assurance that, dog or no dog, I had escaped
I cannot remember that I was ever
much in (he way of getting bitten my.
8-If; but 1 once had considerable
trouble in consequence of a favourite
retriever taking suddenly to biting.
Tbe cause of this I afterwards dis
covered to be that a stupid old servant
had over fed the animal with flesh, and
mado him ferocious. Much occupation
prevented me from noticing how ill
cond'tioned the dog had become until
complaint after complaint from sufferers obliged me to look into the
matter. Of course there wat B return
to a proper diet, and the beast began to
recover good manners It cost me
something to get condonation of his
doings, and to buy off intending
poisoners, for a murderous idea was
darkening, tome vindictive minds. But
my hardest dispute was with a man in
a position of tome importance, who
surprised me by the simplicity, not
above that of a villager, with which be
conducted his case. He know both me
and the dog pretty well. He had not
bad a severe bite. I wat able to
satisfy him that the beast continued
perfectly well, and was fast becoming
gentle as of old.
"But," said the bitten, "he may go
mud siim.r day ''
"I don't know that he wont,"
I answered. "I don't tee why ho
And if he should, I should go mad,
"How can you think »o f The ides it
"-*> 3t at all, sir. I know it must be
"Upon reflection, you will I think,
see that, as the dog it quite well now,
you have nothing to dread in the future
from the past bite."
But this was ju.t what tbe complain
r-.'li.iugh; i'-. he had to dread the
Ml"'.-ts nf : m j, further, he representee!
tbat the only way in which he could
be relieved from hit feart was hy
putting tbe poor dog to death while he
was yet sound, to that he might never
get the chance of going mad.
I, of course, resisted the demand of
my dog's life; but the man, who had
felt the dog's teeth, seemed so terrified
at the fate wbicb might pottibly be in
ttore for bim, thnt 1 took some paint
to reassure him, and induced one or
two medical men, who were friends to
us both, to reason with him on the sub
ject of his fears. Bnt it was in vain;
he did not care for what the doctors
said, but complained aloud that I, for
the sake of keeping a dog—an animal,
and not a preposteting one—alive,
would Jeave him indefinitely with a
frightful death hanging over him by a
I know not how the dispute would
have ended but for a piece of luck.
The poor bitten man was not commandant in bis own bouse, though he had
a sufficiently important public office.
Nobody, probably after *hat I haye
said abont his -rait, trill be surprised
to bear   that be   had a  better thratv-
»ai about tv do the kindness offhand,
hoping tbat io return I should find
mercy for my dog, when a friend who
learned my intention advised me not

man, but to go about the business with

"Tell madam what you have the
power of doing," answered ray friend,
"and insist that if you do it, nothing
more may lie beard against the dog.
She probably knows better than any
one else bow to bring him to reason."
This advice I followed The better
three-quarters quite appreciated the
benefit which I could do for her ton,
and undertook tliat if I would effect it,
the grievance against the % dog »liould
cease and determine. I immediately
set shout my ftiefidiy office ; and how
the lady managed it I know not, but I
soon bad   cause to   acknowledge   that

And the dog and his bite sank from
that time out of notice, and were soon
things of the post.
It will be a great thing for mankind
if M. Pasteur shall prove to have acquired the power over hydrophobia to
which he lays claim. I do not as yet
dare to hope that he is successful—dis
eases have such a tirn-oine way of
reasserting themselves after, according
to scientific rules, they bare been
rendered subject to treatment ; but I
should cordially rejoice in histriumph.
These reit'arks shall now conclude
with an account of an adventure con
licet ed with rabies which did not happen
to mys-lf, but toa military friend, who
told me the story himself, and in whose
statement I have entire couiidence.
This officer was, some quarter of a
century ago, in one of our colonies
whore there was some sport to be bad,
though it was enjoyed in a somewhat
•ns phis tic* ted manner. He was going
off for a few days' shooting into the
country at some distance from his
station, and had collected a cry of
digs, partly by borrowing, partly by
impounding, which h» assembled and
secured in an attic room of the barrack
in wliich bo wat quartered.
On the eye of his departure he heard,
after mess, a most awful conflict going
on in the garret among the imprisoned
pack. His only dread was that some
of them (and he couldn't spare one)
might be disabled in the melee, and unable to start with him in tbe early
morning He summoned his servant,
and they together burst into the chain
ber where the free fight was going on.
A sufficiently savage encounter it was ;
but the entrance of the officer and his
man bad the effect of silencing the
least enraged of ihe combatants, and
the war was maintained after a little
by only three furious animals which no
persuasion could subdue, and which
fh-d at last to be separated by main
force. The three dogs were all so injured tbat tbey could not be taken to
the sport on tbe morrow ; and my
friend and the servant both wore
severely bitten while straggling with
the dogs. When the row was over the
officer tied up his own and his servant's
hands, and went to bed. In the morn
ing he started with a diminished pack,
but otherwise according to prograuiini-,
attended, not by his body-servant who
had been bitten, but by men soiuewhft
acquainted with the field-sports of the
colony. Whether the expedition was
successful in respect of game 1 cannot
remember, neither it ihat point very
essential to the little tale. Two or
three dayt were pleasantly spent in
country air, and my friend the officer
returned duly into garrison at the expiration of his leave.
As hn approached the barracks he
became aware of a most unearthly
howling or screaming, uttered not in
bursts or short cries, but sustained
and piteous. It was distressing to
such an extent that be stopped the first
soldier whom he met to ask what it
meant. The soldier did not belong to
bis own regiment, and therefore did
not recognise bim ; but he told him the
unearthly sounds were  emitted by tba
servant of Captain P  of the —tb,
who was jn the  hospital   raging "ith
My friend was Captain P—, and
one may fancy the feelings with which
he ieceived the information. He went
off at once to the regimental doctor,
and ascertained that tha report which
he bad heard was only too true.  .
"The poor fellow wftt-tMe," said tha
doctor, "otter probably a great deal
more suffering."
"I an truly torry for the poor man,'
answered the captain ; "but his fr ite

strong-minded, went off' determined
not to torment himself liefore the time
If he was destinr d to go mad thf
affliction must be endured, but he
certainly would not go half-way to meet
it. His servant died, as the doctor
had predictevj.' He got another from
th* ranks, and went on exactly in his
old routine, amusing himself as well as
he could, and never (at he afterwards
assured me) losing half an hoar's sleej
by reason of ihe jeopardy in which bt
I saw him alive and hearty more
th*n twenty years after hit bite. It
was lucky for him that he was not

would in all probability bive died from

is curious how   Englishmen still go on
repeating   that London ',»   ugly, erirnv,
and    what   not.    Such   talk is twentv
years   behiud   .he times.    London   is
rapi iiv   becoming   ono  of   tho   most
a.reeable and picturetqu i  cities in the
world.      Its   street    architecture   has
lus.le enormous strides in ihe   last few
years, and the old dirtv,   inconvenient
Lonrlon, beloved by it* inhabitants but
wiih few or nn outward attiaciions for
the   stringer,   it  a   thing   of the past.

Apait   from   thit   little   mitler,   our
critic can only express his   admiraiion
and   "astonishment"   at   the   progress
which Lun-1 t. has made   dree his last j

The despatch stating  that Germany,
Italy and England had recommended
the Porte to enter Roumelia and fortify
the Balkans in the event of Russia invading Bulgaria, may be true or it may
have  been only a  suggestion  of  the
news-gatherer for the associated press,
w'.io hap])ened to be short of sensational
items.    It is simply one of the terms of
the Berlin Treaty and would certainly
be adopted with or without such a recommendation, if necessity called for it.
We need hardly repeat that if the Balkans were not occupied, if the Russians
were near them in force, nothing could
save Constantinople from the clutches of
the Czar.    Rut we  do not think that
such a recommendation would be made
by the three powers named, with llie reassurances of the Ctar- -which arc not,
however, believed—that he would faithfully observe the conditions of the Berlin Treaty and allow the Bulgarians to
manage their own affairs.    Such a ►>
commendation to the Porte would only
be giv<n, we think, at tjie last moment
and in view of an immediate movement
of the  Russians u|ion  Bulgaria.   On
the other hand the Czar has abetter
game to play in'Armenia.   The Armenians   are   orthodox   Christians of the
Greek church, and as such, have been
long ago gathered under the wing of
the great Northern Empire.    The Porte
has been often appealed to by the treaty
Powers,  to prevent  the constant raids
made  upon   the   Armenians  by  the
Kirghis, Kurds, and other wild Moham-
maden tribes, but either from unwillingness or inability to interfere, the incursions, murders and robberies, have been
allowed to continue.   With the pretence
of protecting their co-religionists, the
Russians would have an excellent excuse for invading Armenia, and possibly
taking Erzeroum.     In doing so, their
base of supplies at Batoum, would be
of immense value, and we strongly suspect that it  was with such an object
that Batoum has been made a second
Sebastopol.     The threatening of Bulgaria would be quite in order as a diversion, while troops were being massed in
the vicinity of Kars.    We have noted in
these columns, that no less than three
corps d'armee were being formed in and
near Armenia, and everyone knows that
Russia has no immediate necessity for
such a force, if not for aggression.    Because, supposing tbat sbe had decided
to protect the small Armenian population - from the merciless attacks of the
Kirghis,   a   few  Sotnias of Cossacks
would answer all the purpose.    The
suggestion of Bismarck in conjunction
with his allies, may very possibly have
been made on an understanding with
Russia, as the latter has no immediate
intention of entering Bulgaria.   She can
purchase the adhesion and connivance
of that principality with gold, which is
much more economical than sending an
army *, so that it will be ready for her
when  the grand  coup is practicable.
There is the other reason, also, for this
mode of procedure ; she will force the
hand of England, which latter country
is bound by the conditions on which she
holds Cyprus, to defend Syria against
all comers, and this would involve England with France,  inasmuch as   that
country pretends to have important interests in Syria.    Thus, the movement
of Russia would necessitate the landing
of an English army in Syria arid such
army would at once be placed between
two fires ; for the French would immediately despatch troops to the same
place, to protect her protegees, and in
this way England would have her hands
full.    France would only be protecting
what she esteems her rights;   Russia
would have the same plea in Armenia,
and England would be left single-handed
to fight them both, as a contingent of
Turks would do little to help her.   Germany and possibly Austria would declare that they had no interests to protect in Syria.   The only thing would be
that Bismarck might find a crow to
pluck with France and so occupy that
Power, that her aid to Russia in Armenia
would be of very little consequence and
the Lion and the Bear would be allowed
to fight it out.    It would have been
much better  for England, and in fact
the whole world if the Crimean campaign had been fought entirely by Englishmen,  because although the British
sacrifices at the time, would have been
greater, she would have had a just title
to a war indemnity, and could have
held Sebastapol till it was paid and thus
have completely crippled Russia in the
Black Sea, besides exacting such guarantees for the future, as would have
rendered the existing state of things unlikely, at the present time.
The unexpected death ofthe lale Mr
Homer has created  a  vacancy,   and
judging from   the   number  and very i
questionable competency of those who i
are now offering themselves to surcced
him, the position must be one of great
profit, requiring no effort, education er
intellect   to   perform   the duties connected with it.    If we are to conclude
that the  above is a fair description of
a  member's duties and   emoluments,
people will very properly enquire, what
is the use of a  representative ?   The
answer is plain; so long as the franchise
is placed *n the hands of men who cannot or will not think ; who are led by
scheming men assuming to lie fanatics
in  religion or temperance-not for the
benefits to accrue to the human species
by devotion to either of these useful
masks, but to secure influence with the
weak-minded,  which can be profitably
turned to account.    We shall be told
that our statements in relation to the
advocates of religion and tenjperance
are  too sweeping ; that   we ruthlessly
involve the good  and the bad in one
universal condemnation.     Against this
objection we have only to place our experience and the conclusions we are entitled to draw from it.    We note by the
American papers that the greatest experts in heartless  villainy are the loud
mouthed ministers of religion, and that
the preaching of temperance—particularly prohibition—i« a mode of making
a comfortable living for  unprincipled
adventurers, who enjoy all the invigorating principles of good whisky in secret.
Some of our readers will ask what religion and prohibition have to do with
politics and representation ? we reply,
more than people imagine, and much
more than sensible men, if they were in
the majority, would permit to exist for
a moment.    Our local coteni. has been
tooting the Robson horn in favor of selecting some canting hyprocrit who attends revival meetings and gives semi-
political speeches on temperance. Whenever a man, or woman, puts forward
their great temperance or religious zeal,
as a recommendation for  public favor,
we warn our readers—we speak from
our intimate knowledge of humanity—
he or she is an im.|x>stor and only pretending to virtues he or she does not
possess, in  order to arrive at some object.     This art  of playing a part for
some purpose, is not entirely confined
to the vulgar or lower classes ; it is met
with in the upper strata and in*>such
cases becomes   very  offensive.       The
false   doctrine   of   prohibition — now
thoroughly condemned by its originator
Neal Dow, is being turned into a political motor in the United States, and
the very small imitators of " the ways
that are dark and the tricks that are
vain " in our midst, are so miserably
narrow-minded as to suppose that our
people here, are to be imposed upon by
such flimsy dodges 1   We ran tell them
that their devices arc so well understood
that any candidate put forward disguised
as a prohibitionist will only Ik* hooted
and laughed at.     But we have other
and perhaps greater dangers to avoid.
A great lot of dummies will be brought
forward as candidates who arc paid for

elected by a solid vote.    -This is the
pure Robsonian trick ; it was played
pretty well in our recent  district election Jfor the local  House and is now
being repeated.   Our people who desire
to be well represented,   must   defeat
honest John with his own   weapons ;
they must decide on a representative—
the best they can find, and having done
so, they must vote for him to a man.
The possessors of small cunning usually
defeat themselves ; they become so vain
in their own conceit, that they despise
their greatest enemies, the possessors of
real intelligence.    But these latter must
not follow such a bad example ; they
must keep a wary look out  for such
sneaks and eavesdroppers.     There are
men amongst us who are so contemptibly mean, as to assume the greatest en-
thusiasism for a party to which they are
really opposed, in order to worm out the
secrets.   When these creatures are discovered, they ought to be well thrashed
as an example to their companions. I,et
a few good men take the lead and instruct those who are actively employed
on the canvass,  so that  nothing can
reach the other side, but such reports
as are intended for them.    By adopting
such tactics we will elect the candidate
deemed the best in the field, for the
general good,

Be that as it may. We are of opinion tbat
even though the Dominion Government
forego principle, honor, and justice, to
grainy theae monopolists by granting a
charter, the Syndicate wiil find themselves
in a worse position tban ever, lor the contract made by tbem with tne Provincial
Government ha* been pronouuoed illegal by
the highest legal authority in th* Province.
The Railway Company it it aaid deposited
bonds (where) to the extent of $250,000 to
carry out an agreement on their part during
1886, while the Provincial Government on
their part gave to the Company a freehold
of 0000 acres at or uear Vancouver besides
other sdvsntages and privileges aa an inducement for the extension of tbe line to tbat city.
Now, no two partita can mike a contract

result then, if a charter be granted to the

poaition to aay, but he certainly is at much
entitled to recognition and reward aa any of
tbe other knightt of the quill who have
atstoted in the abortive efforts to boom Vancouver. A very thort time ago we pointed
out aome very gross mu.tatemeuts in relation
to the progress of Vancouver; we have
again to uots other fabrications the publication of which it not creditshle to the proprietor! of a paper aspiring to the high
position generally accorded to the Canadian
Geaetle. We clip from the Genetic ot 9th
ulto. tht following item which appeared
under the bead of "Vancouver" :—
"When here recently, Sir John Macdonald,
a banquet wu tendered to the Premier by
the citizen* of Vancouver. The Caledonian
Society invested him with a regalia of tbe
society at ao honorary member. Sir John
made a lengthy reply, pointing out what hi*
Government bad done in behalf of British
Columbia, and urging all to realite tbat they
were Canadiant, and engaged with the rett
of the Dominion in making the country
prosperous (nd developing it* resources.
Hit speech, which wa* a brilliant one, wa*
h.artily received snd frequently appUuded.
The town was handsomely decorated with
flags and mottos of welcome, the ttoret were
all doted, tnd it waa a general holiday."
Sir John A. Macdonald wat never at the
agglomeration of groggeries called "Van
couver" he never aaw it except from the
deck of a stoamar if oven he took so much
trouble. Sir John wa* invested with the
regalia of a member of the Caledonian
Society at New Westminster, but thst wu
tht only occasion of the kind which took
place in thit Province. The following statement appearing at the aame time aa the
above it equally untrue :—
"Tho total talet of the land department in
thit town of the Canadiau Pacific Railway
Company show ules up to duly 31st amounting to 210,000 doU. net. The grots sales,
adding in the rebates allowed, would total
up to 235,000 dolt. These figures include
only the lsnd sold by the Railway Company
since May 15th—two aud a half months
ago. If all the other property in the town
site which haa been disposed of by other
owners were added on to the above amount
the total would certainly reach not far thort
of half a million dollars. This is thoughts
remarkable record for the thort period of
ten weeks.

Sir John's speech at London will well ro-
ji.iy a careful reading ; and in reading it it
must be difficult for the most impregnable
Grit, if he feels any pride in his country, to
repress entirely that emotion which moves
ao powerfully all who come in any way under the personal influence of the veteran
Premier. The Btory Sir John had to tell
was one in which the chief actor might well
take great pride. Canada to-day, compared
with the Canada of July 1st, 1867—the intervening period being that covered by Sir
John's relation—is as the youth to the infant ; and we an now aa in that stage of
adolescence when wakened consciousness
every day reveals to an alert, fresh imagination some new delight in our surroundings.
Nineteen yeara ago our eyesight did not
reach much beyond the cradle of Canada in
the two older Provinces ; but to-day in our
budding manhood we can take account of
many advant-igea we possess in full enjoyment or i:. near prospect, of whose very ox-
.i ve had not a suspicion in our child-
lioiid. lile promise of manhood lie* now
close before us, and we haVc a youth's
abundant capacity to perceive, seize, and enjoy tho delights and treasures ut hand ; and
quite naturally those who are most filled
witli the splendors of thit vision of hope
feel ii at kindly toward bim who has done
most among ua to bring it to pass. Sir John
A. M cdonald may naturally oe regarded by
rho love Canada witb feelings of warm
r .tion ; for the progress of the country
:e life of the statesman are very close-
tnected : in many, indeea, this almost
nate feeling would seem to be of tho
.y of fir*t love, the man symbolising
ountry; and when he is gone none can
his place with them, for not only will
early youth of the nation itself have
.,1'pped away with bim, but, aa far as oan be
seen, he leaves nobody that can hope to ao
fill tb* popular imagination for many year*
to come.—Toronto Week.
The Country Conservative Club was opened
at St.Alban't with a Urge and distinguished
tendtnee. Lord   Salisbury   wts   loudly
cheered. In the course of a speech he said
it was necessary for the Conservatives to
organize and labour untiringly to maintain
the advantage they had already won. The
divition showed a remarkable record—every
Conservative had either voted or paired—and
tbere wu not a tingle absentee. "Let me
tell you,," continued Lord Salisbury, "the
conditiont of ditcouragement are very serious. Prisoners condemned to labour know
nothing like the mitery and discomfort a
member of the Houte of Comment undergoes
through a night of Irish obstruction. The
Irish obstructionists have greatly changed
in character. Formerly they meant to
secure, and perhaps they were not to lie
blamed for their effort to obtain a long discussion, a oomplete threshing and sifting of
the subject. They carry their opposition to
the utmost possible length to-day, and this
opposition iu skilful handa is something
totally different from their former methods.
It it an instrument of torture tn compel a
majority of the Government by mere physical suffering to concede this or tbat. Whatever the obstructionists set their hearts on
the majority mutt tit and listen, not to argu
ment or exhortation but to elaborate efforts
to watte time whioh are made merely for the
purpose of keeping the majority up night
after night in the hope that from sheer
fatigue they will concede something wliich
they know public duty compels them to ro-
fuse. (Criesof "Shame.") If a representative Government is to continue, he said this
instrument of torture cannot be permitted to
survive. (Loud cheers.') It will paralyze
all legislation and bring discredit on the
oldest inttrument of freedom in the world.
I desire, be continued, to repudiate the
words which Mr. Gladttone kindly put in
my mouth on Monday. Mr. Gladttone it a
master at misquotation (i beei sand laughter)
but I do not believe that he was ever to
brilliant or aucceufnl before. Mr. Gladstone
charged me with stating that there were
cues where judlcisl rents could not lie paid.
Mr. Gladttone based hit* arguincnU and
justified his course thereon, hut the charge
is absolutely unfounded. 1 said nothing of
the kind. (Cheers.) I never said that the
Exchequer should pay the difference between
judicial and just rents. Courtesy alone prevents me fiom contradicting those state-
ment* in sufficiently strong  language.    I'he
firoposal to multiply small freeholdt in Ire-
ana originated with John Bright, who
parted from Mr. Gladttone thia year, but
the proposal wu never a party queation. 1

New South Wales proposes to celebrate in

effort is to be made to give tbe proceedings
somewhat of an Imperial tone. The Government proposes to invite the Prince of
Wales and other members of the Royal
Family to be present, u well u the members of the Governments and Parliaments of
Australasia, India, and Canada. The scheme
is so ambitious in its character tliat to carry

It would be easier to discern the precise
significance of the insurrection which broke
out recently in Madrid, if telegrams at such
a juncture were not notoriously subjected to
as much supervision and mutilation in Spain
as they are in Russia. We can see, of
course, that the revolt, which, it wu hoped,
would involve most of the garrison, wu confined to three, or parts of three, regimentB,
and was accordingly put down, though not
without some fighting. But failure does not
divest of gravity an incident which has some
novel and alarming features, and which, to
say the leut, bodes ill to the tranquillity, if
not to the stability, of Regent Christina's
It had • been for some time reported that
Zorilla's agents were unusually active, aud
an explosion of some kind wu looked for.
But it wu expected that the outbreak would
take place, in accordance with the practice
of republican propagandists, at Badajoz,
Barcelona, or aome other town possessed of
strategic or commercial importance, but remote from the seat of government and much
less efficiently defended. A revolt of three
regiments would have probably insured to
the conspirators the temporary control of
any provincial city in Spain. But the Madrid garrison is relatively very large and
carefully selected, with an eye to the discipline and loyality of both officers end men.
That the first move of an insurrection
should have heen attempted in the capital
augurs cither extraordinary foolhardiness on
the part of the revolutionists or the knowledge that disaffection wu widespread even
iu tlie most trusted sections of the army.
As a rule, Spanish revolutionists of the present generation have not ahown themselves
foolhardy, and Zorilla's long-headedness is
undeniable. The aasertion made in the officially sanctioned telegrams that the officers
of the mutinous regiments remained faithful
is one of the assertions for which it obviously concerns the Government to gain credence,
but it cannot be reconciled with the admission that the revolt wu headed by a Brigadier-General.
A Government whicli cannot even rely on
the picked troops to which it looked for protection in its capital is evidently in a precarious position.—N. Y. Bee.

HENRY WKNTWOltTll MON»,   M. ¥.,    riCOFOHEs
Ottawa, Sept. H.—A great and splendid
scheme of Imperial federation has been perfected by Henry Went worth Monk, M. P.,
of thia city, who thinks now that he has
obviated all possible objections to the
federation idea. He is at the head of a
company receutly formed for the purpose of
buying tlie territory of Palestine, and establishing there tbe capital of thu earth.
The capital stock uf the "New British Empire Company" is 410,000,000, and it is said
that fl ,000,000 hss lieen subscribed already.
Mr. Monk, sa President, has issued a
prospectus, aud uext mouth he will go to
Hugl&nd to place the stock of bis company.
Tbe names of the President of the United
States and Jamer G. Blaine ot Maine mre
attached to the urospectus aa honorary Vice-
Presidents, and her Majesty Qneen victoria
is named aa patrouees, Mr. Monk states in
hie prospectus that Palestine is the geographical centre of the earth as well as the
centre of population, and he thinks that now
is thu time, foretold iu Isaiah, when the
civilized peoole of the earth shall oeasc from
warfare, and accept Jerusalem as their
Mr. Monk says:
Meanwhile, until other nations are pre*
pared to join us, Palestine would be the
most convenient central poaition for the
capital of the proposed confederation of tbe
British empire, or for the English-speak ing
communities everywhere, for the United
States wonld donbtlees immediately join "us
in such a confederation for the sake of insuring tbe general peace of the world at the
earliest possible day.
Mr. nook further urges in favor of his
somewhat startling scheme tbat such a
federation "would doubtless overwhelm entirely every 'Irish grievance'and cause 'homo
rule to prevail not only in Ireland, but in
•very other convenient locality also."
There is no little consolation in the
thought that, however the impostor may
flourish tor the season, he cannot long continue to delude mankind. How many men
contrive to acquire a brief and flashy reputation, and then sink into disrepute and
oblivion I We confess that years ago, when
we first heard of tbe universal celebrity of
Hollow iy. We distrusted his lofty claims,
and arrogated to ourselves a sumriority of
discernment which would not allow him to
entrap onr judgment. Most heartily do we
beg his pardon for tim unjust imputation.
A oarcfull study of his system convinced us
that we were indeed mistaken, and that the
world, to do bim justice, should immediately
as it undoubtedly will hereafter, rank him
foremost amongst its benefactors.

A special despatch from London says thst
the Porte has renewed his complete entfnte
cordiate with England, and the two nations
once more have agreed to act in harmony
with an appearance of a tacit alliance
sgsinst both Russia and France. England
is treating with the Sultan's Government for
the occupation of a group of islets near the
entrance to tbe Dardanelles, and this arrangement is likely to be amicably agreed
upon. Since thu apparent surrender by
Priuce Bismarck of bis independent diplomatic position to the schemes and persuasions of Rusfia the Porte has beeu expe-iitiug
its preparations for war bo as to be ready for
action at once if Hussia, uo longer held in
check hy Germany's position, should advance
on Peroa. Defences are now ready on the
line planned by Engineer Vonder-Gelts, snd.
troops are incessantly arriving at Pcrea snd
advancing toward Koumelia.
Tho New York Sun is asking Neal Dow
some very plain questions, whicli the venerable leader of the third party. Prohibition •
isl&s, has thus far shown no disposition to
unswer. For years Gen. Dow has asserted
and reasserted, by voice and pcu, that the
prohibition lawiu Maine was a complete success, and that it did iu truth prohibit. In
the heat of the recent campaign, however,
Dow asserted that no genuine effort had
ever been made by the Republicans of Maine
to enfprce^the prohibition law, aud that the
law was and always had been openly disregarded in almost every city of the State.
The San desires to know which statement is
correct. Does Dow maintain that the law is
enforced, and is a failure ? For twenty
years the Prohibitionists have relied upou
his statements to support their argument
that prohibition was a success in Maine, and
could therefore bo made a success in an}
other State. Ts thin support now to it-
taken from them ? Are General Dow'l recent statements to bo regarded us a complete
denial and retraction of the assertions which
he has been making at intervals fnr twenty
years ? Dow has been accepted by the Prohibitionists as an authority not to be que**
tioued. aud it ie not clear how they can avoid
accepting his latest declaration that prohtbi
tiou in Maine, after more than a third of a
century of trial, is a virtual failure. Dow is
placed in a must embarrassing position by
the manner in which ho has contradicted
himself, and his fellow Prohibitionist), may
well wunder whether be was deceiving them
when ht. declared tbo prohibitory law to be
a success, or whether he is now deceiving
them in assorting that it is, and always has
been, a failure.— Post Intelligencer,
The following is an extract from sn address delivered by the Bishop of Michigan
hefore the Synod of the Church of England
in Canada. The Bishop of Michigan is a
gentleman who rose to high rank in the Confederate army. At the close of the civil war
he entered Holy Orders and now fills a dig*
nified oliice in the Church militant:—
"In the first place,t'ie English Church has
the immense advantage of being, as it were,
the church of our race, around which Anglo-
Saxon Christianity has flourished. With all
the progreesiveness of our people thoy do
love and respect what is customary, and venerate the traditions of their own past. They
preserve their customs, manners and laws,
and this it becoming daily more and more
evident in religion also. Our church has an
Immense advantage in its sober, ethical,
nndogmatical faith, free from metaphysical
difficulty, and from mysticism of sll kinds
free. It falls in with tbe views of sober,
practical men and women. If chore is one
characteristic of our Anglo Saxon race more
clear than another it is its hatred 01'mere
sentimentaliam and sham. They are, there.
foie, but little likely to be mialrd
by the false enthusiasm which makes the
Frenchman so volatile and the Tun tan so
transcendental. No religion can long maintain the allegiance of the Anglo-Saxon people
that is not both sober and practical. Our
Church has also the advantage that always
and at all times it has put conscience and
duty to the fore. In our beautiful service
every Sunday morning, God's cheerful law
is read in the hearing of his peoplo, thus invoking conscience—honoring conscience—-
and then leaving conscience free to adjust
and determine matters of detail, ft is for
this reason more than any other tbat the
English-speaking race all the world oyer
have been liberty-loving men, because in
their estimation liberty is a sacred thing
with all the obligation of moral freedom
resting upon it. Long before the battle of
Trafalgar was fought, the Church of England threw abroad her banners with the
cross and with the words inscribed on them
" England «Xpaotseach man to do his duty."
We believe onr church has the enormous advantage of having a sober but at the same
time a decent sftd reasonable and beautiful
•service. Though our people do love *.\*hat is
decent and seemly, though they boast of a
reality, it is their custom to express rather j
less than more than they feel. A certain ro-
serve is at the head of their honest self-respect, and therefore I ssy that no religion
can long hops to claim the allegiance of that
race that is not decent and seemly, while at
the same time it is really reasonable snd
