Before the establishment of Mahom
medanism a gross idolatry prevailed
throughout the greater part of ihe
East, where a barbarous superstition
sanctioned the most revolting practices
as a grateful offering tn the idols it had
raised. Then the paramount religions
of Arabia were the Magian (instituted
by Zoroaster about the fourth century
before our era), the believers in which
worshipped tire, and the S.bean, th
followers of which adored the celestial
luminaries as well as evil spirits.
Theae principal beliefs were subdivided
into various minor sects of idoiatom ,
but, however, differing among them
selves on matters of faith, all admitted
the sanctity of the Kaaba, or Holy
Teniple of Mekkah, (called "Beit
Allah," the House of Ood), the remote
antiquiry of which is incontestable.
Half a century before tjie Christian
era Uiodorous Siculus mention, the
Kaaba as the most ancient temple of
I hkt time. Oneof the Moslem traditions affirms that it descended from
heaven to its present site, and another
that it was built by Abraham. The
chief object of worship was, and is
still, the "Hajar Aawad," or black
atone, inserted iu the south-east corner
of the building. The Eastern imagination has made tbis stone the subject
of many legends, ahveh are, firmly
believea by the vast majority of Mussulmans Some of these legends tell
how it was Adam's guardian angel, who
was transformed into it. for his negli
gence in udmitting the serpent into
Eden ; while others assert that it ia a
precious stone which came on earth
with Adam, and was taken up to heaven
during the Deluge, returning again
after that catastrophe. Another legend
describes the black stone as having
served Abraham in lieu of scaffolding
when he was constructing the Kaaba,
ascending or descending with him at
his will. The stone, which is bordered
by a plate of silver, is alleged to have
been originally whiter than snow, but
became quite black from tho kisses of
so many generations of sinners. The
Kaaba itself is a small stone building,
situated in the centre of the mosque at
Mekkah, and its exterior is covered
with a rich cloth, annually renewed by
the Padisha, who sends it to its destination by thesacred "Mahmal,'' which
leaves Cairo with much pomp in the
month i f February every year. The
Kiiiilni wai unci* filled with idols,before
wbicb pilgrims pn strated themselves,
and lo which ihey made costly votive
offerings. Dining certain months of
the vim boats of pilgrims crowded tt>
Mekkah from nil parls of the East to
perform the various ceremonies required of the worshippers. From
what had been said it »ould seem ihat
corrupted notions of the Old Testament were strangely mingled with
idolatory amongst the Arabians in pre-
Islamic times. This period is always
referred to through tbe East at "the
time of ignorance." Such, then, was
the religious condition of a great part
of the East while Mahommed was yet
a young man. Endowed with a natu
rally observant and reflective mind, he
could not fail to perceive Ihe falsehood
of this debasing superstition, and with
that preception arose the hope of establishing on its ruins a new religion
with himself as its prophet and head.
In pursuance of that ambitious design
he withdrew to the cave of Mount
Ham, near Mekkah, where he spent
several years in retirement, assiduously
preparing himself for the great hut
evil career on which he was destined to
enter, it was here, he said, that he
first beheld the Angel Gabriel, who,
hailing him as the Prophet of God, re
vealed to him several verses of the.
Koran. In the composition of thai
famous bosk, however, Mahommed was
assisted hy a Jew named Abdallah
Ibn r-alem, to whom he was indebted
for his knowledge of the Mosaic revelation i aud from a member of hi*
house named Waraka, who possessed a
corrupt veraion of the Gospel, he ia
said to have derived most of his ac
quaintance with the New Testament.
Mahommed, however.cunningly averred
tbat the revelations of the Koran were
communicated to him directly, and by
degrees, from heaven in leligious
-ranee* or ecstaciss, thus enabling him
Making our »ay into the street, Mr
Eustis and   myself   managed   m   pass
through the   croad   and to   reach tl
building of the   Agricultural    Club, in
the immediate neighborhood, and from
the balcony of   which we   could see all
that was   going   on.    And    now   tli
soldiers   of tho   guard, many   of them
with their   hats on   the ends   of their
muskets,   accompanied    by   au   null-
riminate   mass of  men,    women, and
children, poured  over   the Pont   de la
Concorde and tilled the entire space, all
in  one  grand    fraternisation,    singing
the Marseillaise, and shouting "Vive lu
Republique !'    The Municipal   Guard,
with its shining   helmets and   brilliant
uniform,   waa  forced   back,   inch   by
inch, liefore the   people, until,   finally,
all military authority   became utterly
powerless       During   this    time    the
National Guard und the people   had invaded the hall uf the   deputies,    which
thev found vacant, Mr.  Schneider and
about a dozen   of the members  rushed
in.    The President in vain   made   appeals   for   order, and   finally   covered
himself by putting on his hat, according
to   the    iiumemorable   usuge   of   the
French assemblies under   such circuin
stances.    Gambetta   addressed   a few
energetic words ro the invaders,   and,
a little order   being   restored,   quite a
nufciber of*" deputies entered the   hall.
But at three o'clock a grand  iriuption
into   the   Chamber   took    place.    M.
Jules Favre then ascended the tribune
and was   listened   to   for a    moment.
"Let there be   no scenes of    violence,"
he said ; "let u, reserve our arms   for
the enemy, and tight it to the last.    At
this moment union is necessary, and for
that reason   we do  not   proclaim   the
republic."    The   President    then   precipitately left   his seat,   and it   turned
out that it was for the   last time.    The
irruption     into   the     Chamber   continued.
i-rrrt- in the Chamber oj DeiMfin.
The flo'T and the seats of the deputies,
on which a few members of the L'ft
only remained, were filled with a
motley crowd in blouses and coarse
woollen shirts, or in the uniform of
the National Guard or the (iuaid
Mobile. They wore caps and "kepis"
of all colors and shapes, and carried
muskeis with their muzzles ornamented
with sprigs of green leaves. The
tumult became indescribable, and some
of the invaders seized on the pens and
paper of the deputies and commenced
writing letters, while different persona
were going up to the President's eliair
and ringing his bell continually The
crowd in the hall now demanded the
"decheance ' of the Emperor, whiuh
was declared, and ihen it was propositi
to go to the Hotel de Villi- and pro
claim the Republic. The art was
therefore raised, 'Al' Hotel de Ville!"
mingled with other cries, "Cherchez
Rochefort!" Ac, and then this vast
multitude commenced moving away
from the Palais Bourbon. The crowd
having soon sufficiently dispersed, we
were enable to make our way back to
the Corps Legislatif and to enter the
diplomatic tribune. The hall was filled
with dust, and was in the greatest
possible confusion. A rough looking
man was in the President's chair, surrounded by a number of men still
more rough in appearance, The
soldiers and the people were occupying
the seats of the deputies indiscriinin
ately, writing letters, looking over
documents, and talking and laughing,
all in the best of humor. In the hall
at this time, 1 recognised Gamier-
Pages, Raspail, and a few other mem
bersof the Left. Leaving the Chan-
ber, we went at   once to the   Hotel d

Some discussion hud been raised ut the

tiicnlour wus the Hug of 1792-93, und
that under it Prance hud lieen, and yet

went back to tin- Chamber of Deputies
to Iind it still in the possession ofthe
people. From there I returned to my
legation, whicli I reached at half past
six in the evening. At i ight: o'clock 1
rode down lo the Corps Legislatif to
see what the situation was there, but
on my arrival 1 found everything
closed and the lights extinguished.
The doors leading to tin hall of th"
deputies bad been shut and seals put
upon them. I then dr. ve through
suiiie pans of tin- city, and found
everything remarkably quiet. The
day had been pleasant and the night
was Wttrti.nl beyond rV'seriprJoii

upon I.ord Lyons, the British Am

day which we li.nl witnessed, and which
wr were certain would become on-'of
the most memorable in the history of
France. In n few brief hours of a

some very goo-l points iu relatiou to tbe proposed Cariboo railway, and showed first that
tbe local   OovanUBOBl surveys   were   little
more than a job, and that the railway should,
to be of any real value, follow the   banks ol
the Fraser,   as there  were found   the really
valuable    farms   which    required   railway-
facilities.    Mi. Theodore l>avie   made some
vary pertinent  and   well timed   remarks iu
relation to the monstrous  pretentions of the
Kail way Company (tho C.P.K.) in respect to
their right of constructing   branches.    Kvi-
Unntly our legislators are ut last   aroused to

Mr. Bole and Mr.   Orant objected   to tb-

Petitions about   railways   wore   presented.
Mr. Speaker   admitted the   corrections sug-
gaatM by Mr. Keaven <m tbe subject of the

make the necessary emendation.    Mr.   Turner said tho   remarks of   the   opposition on
tlu> subject of   the railway   monopoly   were
equally udmitted by the Oovernment.    (We
trust this is correct.)   Tbe   position of the
boetnaei men of this ProvluOO was  generally
fidt tn be   :\   false  one   in   relation   to   the
telegraph particularly.    Mr.   Kobson   made
one of hia ii'iu.'*I orations   which had nothing
in it but blutinnd barefaced   denial of  faots
witb a miserable attempt to ovculpate  himself.    The electors bo said, did uot come out
at the bite election beciius-* they thought the
opposition had no chance.    (They  came out
siitbcicutly not only to defeat his   nominees
in this district, but very nearly to oust himself.)    He  instanced  the Nauaimo election
to show the great popularity of the  Government.    (This was a most  unhappy   allusion
because   the  local circumstances   attending
it sufficiently accounted for the return of the
lucky candidate.)   He said that Coat Harbor
extension was made 1-ccause  the Company
desired to  reach  the best   termiuus,    (This
is ll.In.uu in   in the  extreme,   as it is well
known that Coal   Harbor will   never be the

MoNOar, Jan. :tl.
Mr. Lad iter    presented a petition    for the j
repeal ot the Sumaa liykmg   Act,  aigued by
IU*-. settlers.     Mr.    Mcl^-ese    iu  continuing '
tbe debate oa the address, characterised the
rule* charged    by tbe  ( .   1'.   K     ai    almost
prohibitory.      He   cited instances  of  exoi
bltaut   charges   and   thu    •*■ .iy    they    were
partially   evaded.     He   matte  out a   serious
case against the C. P. L, fur  which   he de
serves the gratitude  nt the Proviuce.    He,
however, made an enoneous statement when
be says   the   Inland   Sentinel  was   tl-   only
pipei tbat  opposed the (.. P. It. monopoly.
This journal   laid the whole   scheme before
tbe public until it was bsiked upon as   being
expo-sod, and we suspect that we ulouo placud
the matter iu its true light.    Mr.   Dunsmuir
followed   with    one   of   hia   characteristic
speeches, in  tbe course ot which he aaid, he
had yet to learn tbat the C   P. U. Co., have
adopted a prohibition tariff and disputed the
statement that the member  for Cariboo bad
paid   the excessive charge  mentioned to the
company.    The paasenger charge was  seven
ci.uts pet mile   while in   Kngland it   was six
ueuts per   mile.    I'nusidcriug   other values, 1
gradients, Ae.,    the ehsrgeof the   Cauadiau
Pacilic Railway waa   moderate.    Were tbat 1
compauy to offer him tho  whole road in B.
C, lands, and   everything  else,   and asking
lum to ruu it, he w.mld nut take it.    It uas
no business   of ours if fruit   wss curried for
nothing;   it was   only a   political   humbug
that the   question   had  arisen   stall.    Did
they want to get at the  facts, a  commission
should    Ih*   uppoiuted     to   investigate   the
freight tariff.    The road bad been   brought
down to Coal   Harbor in the   interest of the
whole country ; and when that question was
b.-liu.- the    House the   gentlemen   opposite
cuuld then have   stipulated   iu favor   of tow-
freight charges.    He was sorry ta   say that
the talk was as   much   on the   Oovernment
side as on   that of the   opposition.    He believes, however,   the company   should ban
shown a more   generous  spirit iu   treating
with the people for the right of way for the
extension,     It had been said   that the stockholders derived ten per cent out of tlie road,
but he   did   not   believe   it.    Of  his   own
knowledge he   knew that the   compauy did
not derive as much out of the road iu British
"ol.inbia as   was   paid  to the section men
and road workers emp'oyed ou  tbat  part of
the tine.
We must remind our readers tbat Mi.
Dunsmuir is a partner in the firm of
Huntington Crocker k Co., the greatest
monopolists on this continent; and, that Mr.
Dunsmuir bought a large number of lots in

terence to the •.250,000 bond j-iven by
the Syndicate—"I do not lielii've that
my member will have the temerity io
say tim*. because the 0. P. K. Oo., had
not completed its contract that thr-
b md should In' forfeited !''
Heaven--There is no authority in
the Und let to authorise lhe transfer
nf the 8.000 acres to the C. P. K. This
irnnsaction is illegal, and the transfer
nf the Island to Dunsmuir, Crocker o.
Do., is precisely the same—illegal
Higgins lute editor and proprietor of
the "Colonist" declared that "the Oom-
pany's conduct was scandalous ; and expressed the hope that the 1900,000
would be collected.
In discussing amendments to address
Heaven proposed the following clause —
•'VVe regret that your Honor's ministers
did not stipulate for reasonable freight
rates for our products over the Company's line when granting to them
large and valuable conc.-ssions. . . .
We consider thnt the present prohibitory rates are detrimental tn the
ruining, agricultural and oniniiicieial
interest of the Province.'' And the
undernamed "repri'sentntives of the
people" said~-"xo." Allen, Davie,
Turner, Haker, John, draft, Duiisniiiir,
Anderson, .Mriitin. Hobsnii, Vernon,
Prior, Cowan, Higgins, Thornton,
.Mason, and A. K. B. Davie. Now
who will venture tn say that nur representative inititutiou is nnt u sham .'
All the laws made by theso local petty
foggers will be repealed with rifles.
In reference to the sixth clause
Stenliouse made   nn excellent   -peach,
He exhibited tbe   ignorance  ul   local
Legislators and pointed clearly to the
fact thai the laws have no meaning—
lliere gabble, parrot law. He said—
"The Island railroad is only 7o miles
long, but the land extending sixty miles
beyond the end ofthe railroad was given
to Duiisniiiir CriMikenxCo.' lirunt said
the revenue from the Wellington mines
has run up into the millions. 115,000
acres of coal lields have been given
away und Oounx hns uo railroad.'
Iliinsuiiiii assured the HoUlH thai
the debate was waste of time. Every
thing said he "is iu my hands, and it is
uot in the power of this House to
meddle with my rights."
Theo. Davie would not submit to
such insolence and hinted that "the
tiovemment might discover before the
end of the session that Dunainuir was
its worst enemy."
Heaven was amazed, and grievi-d to
see the mini heaver making a show of
himself. I'he people nil over the Province say—"Hu is the Government. '
He took all he wanted and now he
defies this House. Hut the people nl
Uritish Columbia will rise in their
might, and smash the monopoly. His
conduct ill beooinei ft man who had
benefitted to the extent nf half a
million by an act passed last session,

Thnt is nnt one.

Bole warned the Government,
They should remember thnt public
opinion has changed acts of Pnrlia
uienl, and he hinted to the member
for Nanaimo that a king mny arise
who will not acknowledge Joseph.
Capitalists can take care of themselves
but the House should take care of the
people. He hoped Dnnsinuir would
use his power leniently, if not he would
see it taken away.
Ten days ago the "Colonist" assured
its readers that Dunsmuir is the son
of a coal miner. That title did not
please the great man. Then the "Colonist" gravely uiiiioun.es him to be the
sou of a coal mine owner ; but in 'he
House, this week, he prOgftd himself to
be the sou of selfish ignorance. The
people ought to put him into a chariot
and harness to it, thu sixteen slaves who
voted with him in favm nf probtb

I.Hsi week at Cahircoiilish iu l.iuui
ick County, Kdward O Grady, a tenant
ou the Cubbctt .state, was evicted.
O'Crndy, and twenty of his fiieuds
armed, were iu the upper story, and
the stair case cut away. Ladders were
placed against the walls outside aud
the bailiffs and police went up ; but
thev OMM down in hoi haste under the
inlliieiice of hot MM*. The cont'st
lasted for three hours. Ultimately a
hole was cut in the ceiling while the
police with rifles kept the In-sieged at
bay. The fortress surrondei-cd and the
sherilf entered ; no one hurt except
the bailiffs who were half boiled.
To Gweedore iu Donegal on tbe
MUM day a sheriff escorted by 100
policemen went to execute decrees,
Three thousand men aswuibled to resist by force if necessary. One ofthe
constables hit one of the peasantry
with a baton, and the result was a
desperate light ; live of tbo police wero
badly wounded, and would have been
kill.il if it were not for the influence
of a Roman Catholic priest. The
police and tbe sheriff roiired, and left
the tenants undisturbed. On the way
back through one of tbe wild passes in
Donegal the sheriff and the police had
a narrow escape. Huge masses of
granite were rolled down from the
mountains, the cars were smashed and
the horses killed but the police escaped.
The London "(Standard" publishes a
copy ofthe new Coercion Hill. It em
powers the crown to summon special
jurors, and change the venue of trials ;
it enables magistrates to deal summarily
with conspiracy, intimidating, and boycotting. The bill has been approved
by tho Cabinet, and will, iu order io
evade criticism, be formally applied to
the whole United Kingdom.
In the London stock market there
was n panic on the 1st instant in con-
•equence of a telegram received from
Vienna where a decree was issued to
regulate the movements of the Lund
sturin. A mil linn of men arc sum
monad to be ready for war at a
moments notice. If thu summons be
received before the uniforms are distributed then the men are to wear au
insignia of yellow and black armband*,
bearing the number of the regiment.
It is further Ottered that each man
shall provide himself with a metal
badge, by which he may be identified
dead or alive. The order is regarded
ns n sure sign of war.
A despatch from Paris assisted iu
causing tbe fall in the stock market.
Oen, Boulanger says:—"Germany docs
not mean to do anything so foolisdi as
to ssk France for explanations."
Four great army corps are now
forming in Austro Hungary; 250,000
men in each ; the commanders are already named. These gigantic pre
parnt ions have beeu undertaken with a
view to contingencies that may arise
in case of war between France and
The special correspondent of the
"Daily News ir. a despatch dated at
Paris on the 3rd inst. says: "We
,re accmed of inventing and circulating wsr rumors to create a panic in
the stock market.' Gen. Boulanger declared to-day tbat these rumors were
traps inl ended for France. He says :.
—•'She is calm and can defy the
iiiBiio.tivers of all hor enemies. There
will be no war if Germany is not re
solved to have it—but—if she wishes
to begin—well —it can't bs helped."
It is evident the French generals believe ihat France is well able to face
any foe on the battle field. All ov..r
Kurope the signs of war are unmistakable
A decree of divorce was granted last
week t'i Ihe Marchioness of Queens-
berry. The Marquis had no defence to

In the Senate at Washington   there
was a great fuss over the   fishery question.      Senator   lngalls   believed   "it
must be ultimately settled by   negotiation or by »ar."    That   sentence is a
good sample of nothing.    The question
will not, of course, be   settled   hy   the
fishes.    He continued    lo   scream    in
spread    eagle   style,    and     talked    of
vengeance,    "An eye  for   an   eye,   a
tooth for a tooth, a fish for  a   fish, an
! insult for an  insult,   a   wrong   fnr   a
I wrong, and a blow for  a   blow."     Hut
! he never thought of saying —"I   forgot
' the   prologue   lo   this   oration.     We
| must have a great fleet   of   iron dads,
; torpedoes, and fortresseson the coast''
i It is pretty certain that the politicians
are prepsring to dive into   the   public
purse and lake out   money   enough to
j build a fleet that will never float.    His
i speech is a curious sample of rant, and
evidence of a hedge school   education.
He wss followed by Senator Krye, who
| recommended the exclusion of Canadian
fish from the American market.    If the
Canadians cannot sell fish th- ir   trade
in the fishery will collapse.     He   believes this idea should be embodied  in
a proclamation to   lie   issued   by   the

Iu Douglas county, HI., on Monday,
there was a great wolf hunt. Two
thousand men, armed with clubs and
knives, and followed by two hundred
d..gs, surrounded a forest infested by
wolves, The sport was excellent, and
thirteen grey wolves were  killed.
At Carnesville, Mo., on Saturday
night, Bill Sanders, a murderer, was
taken out of jail and with a rope aliout
his neck he was mounted on u mule.
In thut position he confessed and asked
the crowd to pray for him. Yes, said
Bill, 1 killed Swilling. He wus lying
on his right side, and 1 struck him
with the edge of the axe on the left
side of ihe head. His wife raised up
iu the bed and "hollered"—"Oh, Lord!
Papa!" I struck ber on top of the
bead with the edge of the axe. I then
turned to the other lied where the boys
wen, sleeping, and killed tbem with the
edge of the axe. The baby cried and
I gave it a top of the axe handle.
"Pray for him," said one of tho crowd,
"Git!" and he gave the mule a blow,
and there was Hill Sanders dangling on

There seems-to be a contest between
I those who think that peace will Im. inain-
| tained in Kurope and those who think
! Ibat em is inevitable ; we suspect in
i the caae uf ibe first, thai the wish is
Ulhei lo the thouglu. It wouid be well
if (-eople would iciiuinlicr that war will
nut lie entirely the result ul a longing
for conquest or the gratification of a
desire for revenge; it is in a great
measure to counter act the universal
tendency lu democracy which evists in
every part of Euroix:. Pure democracy
is not a bad thing in its way; but when
it becomes alloyed with Socialism, Anarchism, Nihilism and other like isms,
it becomes a very great evil and nothing
bul tbe most radical and searching cure
can extirpate it. The only counteraction ever found to eradicate it for a
time, is war, and, therefore, we are certain to have war. Russia has unlimited
material for soldiers; she does not
bother herself with enlistment or even
conscription ; she just sends out a few
troops of Cossacks and drives in a herd
ol peasants to be manufactured into
soldiers. Human life or the most ordinary considerations of humanity.nevcr
into her calculations; if she wants
soldiers she takes them no matter if the
women and children and old people of
the village, starve to death in consequence. She does not discriminate in
favor of Russians; she takes Poles,
Fins, Georgians, Turcomans, or Turks,
with a *ierfect regardlessness of nationality ; and if she has to kill half a population to secure the other half for her
army, it Ogives her no concern. 'Then
in regard to her commissariat ; the
soldiers have carte blanche to get all they
can, if they have to kill the people in
order to get their food, it can't be
helped, but the soldiers must be sup
plied. We cannot then, be surprised to
learn, that there are nearly two hundred
thousand Russian troops hovering near
the borders of AfTghanistan, and these,
no doubt, arc intended to make an attack n|mn India, in order to divert the
attention of (ireat Britain, when the
time comes for the grand spring at
Constantinople. If these two hundred
thousand men were the soldiers of any
other country than Russia, it would be
almost impossible to maintain them on
the small oases here and there, in the
barren steppes of Turkestan. But Russian soldiers can live on very meagre
fare and when that becomes scarce they
can get on very well by living on the
flesh off their neighbors' horses. They
make very good soldiers when opposed
to wild or half-civilized races, but they
have been much overestimated as opponents to well disciplined modern
armies. It is quite likely that they may
strike a snag when they come in contact
with the Sepoys drilled and commanded
by British officers. 'The possibility is,
that the Persians may be forced to join
them, in which case it will be bad for
Persia. The Shah in Shah is the ruler
of a fine, valuable country not only for
its products, but for its position. It
has been looked on both by Russia and
England, with covetous eyes, for many
years, and the Russians have been cutting off slice after slice until it has been
considerably pared down. It may be
necessary in the course of events, for
England to take possession of Persia,
and if she does, the days of Russian
domination in Turkestan will be ended.
The excitement in France, at present,
is very great, Troops and matcriale of
war is being hurried forward to the
frontiers and the lines long fixed upon
for the defense of the country, in case
of reverse at the frontiers, are being
prepared for all eventualities. The
probabilities are certainly against the
Germans ever reaching Paris a second
time, in case of their being victorious on
the frontiers; it would cost too much.
Germany is thoroughly aroused and
having mounted her war horse, somebody will have to bite the dust and
somebody else will have to pay the
piper. It would be a dangerous thing
to cry peace and disarmament row ;
there has been too great a tension and
the leash holding the dogs of war will
certainly be broken. Austria will enter
the conflict with great reluctance, for
she knows well that she will have to
bear the brunt of the fight with the
great northern empire, at first, at any
rate, single-handed. That she will be
aided ere she falls, there can be no
doubt; but her sufferings and losses
meantime will be very great.' Russia
hates her bitterly, first because she is
composed in a great measure of the
German and Magyar races, and next,
for her temerity in taking possession of
the Balkan provinces of Bosnia and the
Herzegovina. There will be no quarter
when these two foes meet and Russia
will send her best troops to cope with
the Austrians. We note that the three
Emperors are to meet next month,
when there will be much embracing and
kissing, and hurrahing on the part of
the people. But, while this is going on
armies will be approaching each other
and the return home will be the signal
1 for slaughter. It will be verv exciting
to learn the result ol t!.e rate between
England and Russia for the command
of the Danlanclles ; which  ■..!   the two
; will get in first  and  the naval   en
ments which will  follow.     Trom recent

As we  predicted,   the tone ol the
House  is much elevated; lhe ar-quisi-
tion of such men as Baku. Bole, Prior
and Turner, must bave iis due influence ; and, should even corruption
exist, it will, al   I,-asi.  be   clothed in a
garb much less revolting than hereto
fore. The speeches of Col, li.ik.-i and
Mr. Prior took the Houae b) lurprise;
they had been accustomed to look upon
Mr. Robson with all his faults, as a
good s]>cakcr ; but nnw the illusion i.
gone; he stands oul imri in all iln-
naked deformity of a charlatan ; Ins
words, and tlie few ideas In- has, ne
stereotyped. The House, nl i nurse,
has a good many of the "old parliamentary hands " and must led the influence ol Iheir presence Im ibis sissimi
at least. In a sparsely populated country like this, it is hard fo iind mm Who
arc able or willing to give their time to
parliamentary duties. The time, nu
doubt, will eome, when we shall have
plenty who will be not only Willing, but
eager, to distinguish themselves in tin-
forum; but, that period has not arrived, so that we must make the bed ol
what we have. 'The speech Irom the
throne, the ostensible object of the
efforts uf Col. Haker and Mr. Prior, was
such a colorless and empty combination of words that il must haveui.l
Messrs. Haker and I'rior a grind deal nl
anxious thought as fo the best way of
looking at ii. 'Turn it over as they
would, they could only Iind the same
hopeless blank. Now, it may have
been thought politically prudent u>
make the Lieut-Governor the mouth-
piece for such a senseless piece of verbiage, but il this was the object of the
ministers, it Indicated one of two conditions of affairs ; either, the ministers
had nothing to say in praise of anything
they had done, and, bad nol the wit to
foreshadow any course for the tut ure ;
or, tbey were conscious Ofthe very serious complications amongst which, by
their blundering or corruption, they had
stranded the Province, and did nnt wish,
by a single word, to draw the attention
of members to any ol Iheir disastrous
actions. Sonic time ago we counseled
the electors to drive these men from
power ; but we are now im lined to
think, that the best thing the elector.
could have done, was to keep them
where they are until the affairs nf the
Province have been thoroughly investigated, and the truth elicited in relation
to a number of mysterious and murky
transactions. l-'or instance, we want
to know the true history of the Settlement Bill, how it was got up and who
were the lucky beneficiaries. We \vanl
to know for whose bcnelil the Kootenay
Bill was enacted and whn gni the
money that was spent in getting ii
through the House. We wuuld like lo
know why the Eagle Pass Road was
built and why it was paid lor, and the
reason for giving Messrs. Ainsworth
power to take up their sixty thousand
acres of land anywhere and al any
time they please, Wo have an anxious
desire to learn upon whal principle ol
law or justice the si.x thousand acres nl
land at English Hay, was given to tin
persons said to represent the Railway
Company; and, the conditions upon
which the gift was made, not being
complied with, why the land with tin-
improvements, should nut at nine, ie-
vert to the Province. It would be well
that our people should learn why upwards oi three weeks of the valuable
time of our local House, was, occupied
last session, in passing an unnecessary
and unworkable act Of incorporation
for a mythical city to be called Vancouver, on which occasion, Mr. Robson
had the temerity to bully the whole
House. It would be well tn tell the
people why that incorporation bill was
passed ; if at the request ofthe inhabitants, who the inhabitants who applied,
were; their objects and prospects.
The public should also be informed
how, why and wherefore, such an un-
wieldly abortion as lhat famous incor-
ation bill was, should have been passed
at all, and which of the ministers are
prepared to acknowledge ihe paternity.
The people ol this city would like to
know how the local House came to
have power to enable our Oily Council
to sell the public squares and open I
spaces ; and whether the" local Govern- j
ment can legally pay the thirty-seven !
thousand five hundred dollars to the !
persons said to represent the C. P. R. j
Syndicate, and when it will be paid. Il
is the height of absurdity for ministers
to pretend  that these  quest;.

Thu bill passed by the limine pensioning
dependent soldiers and sailors, who were not
disabled in the service, but who are now too
old and too feeble to work, and also pensioning the dependent parents of soldiers and

Washington society is intensely curious to
see the bride of the Cabinet, Mrs. Lamar,
and ita curiosity has increased with her
evident desire tu postpone her public or
eveu private appearance. Several of the
ladies of the Cabinet have railed to see Mrs.
Lamar, but she has thus far refused herself
to everyone. She ia said to he a typical
southern woman, who haa always lived
(pjietly, and when she realise that hundredi
of pens are waiting to paragraph her, it is
not surprising that she shrinks from the
public gaze. The wives of the other Cabinet
officers tell the Secretary of the Interior now
that they believe his bride is a myth.

Prophylactic medicine is of greater value
to the public than curative, although they
are slow to give it its due; hence the subject
of tooth powders may he of some interest.
The necessity ol keening the teeth cleau,
with a view to the prevention of futuie
trouble, is overlooked ny too many, even in
the higher classes, sometimes Irom carelessness, sometimes from ignorance. Now, cannot the medical attendant do a great deal to
combat this state of things? The dental
surgeon is often aaked, "How soon shonid
the first tooth brush be used !" "As noou as
there are teeth to une it, upon" should be
the reply. An ideal tooth-powder -dinuld
be alkaline, since acida dissolve the tooth
substance ; finely pulverised, thut it iny not
mechanically abrade ; antiseptic, to prevent
decomposition of tnoA lodgtsl between the
teeth, and perhaps to de-itroy the microbes
which are always found choking the tubule*
of carious dentine ; it should contain nothing irritating to the gums; and. Iflstly, if
should be, pleasant to the taste, or tt will not
be used. Kluid dentifrice*** do not. as a rule,
clean the teeth effectually, unless they contain some ingredient which acts upon the
enamel itself; and those preparations which
are eulogised as making teeth white or preventing deposit of tartar ahould he avoided.

The gallant general's fame a** a soldier had

religion and law. Hut such would appear
to hsve lieen tho case if the telegram bo
correci that, after the archbishop had expounded to him the beautie*- of the Buddhist
faith and the rules which were laid down
therein for the guidance of all in authority,
Sir Frederick replied that the course recommended was exactly that which he was
following in annexing the country to British
rule. Henry of Navarre was not more open
to conviction on theological matters, and the
general is to be congratulated on so cleverly
winning the enemy's priesthood to his side.

While a groat rindi is on all grounds to be
deprecated, we are glad to heliovu that the
gold fields at Tectulpa are assuming more
and mure au aspect of pcrinarency. 'i'he fact
that thfl gold would he found to lie confined
to Brady'k (iully has bevn effectually dissipated. Satisfactory results have attended
opetatioiiH in at least two other gullies, and
there seems to he no earthly reason for supposing that these are exceptions to thu
general rule. There are two or three facts
in connection with the field which are very
significant, lu the first place, the area that
is being tested is extending daily ; in the
sweond place, the number of diggers is in
creasing rather thau diminishing; and, '
the third place, there are no such complaints
uow as were heard from many who joined in
ihe tirat rush to Teutulpa. It would ho unfair to draw the inference that all the
thousands of men upon the field are getting
gold, but it is not uufair to assume that
enough is being got to satisfy those who are
not among the fortunate ones that the
prospects are sufficiently good to justify
diligent aud persevering search. It is evt
dent that most of the diggers are of thu
right stamp—men who do uot expect to get
gold from every shovelful of earth, or even
from each hole they sink, but who have
made up their minds to give the place a fair
trial, and not bo easily disheartened by
failure.— Ret/inter.

Dr. Charcot of the Salpetriere hospital has
beeu coutiuuing with considerable success
his experiments on hysteric and hypnotic
patients. Having satisfied himaelf as to the
possibility of transferring paralysis, nervous
contractions, and cataleptic systems from
une person to another, he next sets to work,
in conjunction with his able assistant. Dr.
i.'.binski. to apply the test tohystcric dumbness.
It in a well-known fact in medicine, that
people afflicted with hysteric epilepsy suddenly become tongue-tied, and remain so
for many years. A female patient afflicted
in tbis manner, but who was otherwise of
robust constitution, was placed back to back
with a woman who had heen n long time
cataleptic. Ry means of the magnet the
dumbness waa transferred from tho one pur-
sou to the other with the shiuu regularity
that marked the experiments in paralysis.
By continuing the experiments Dr. Charcot hopes te be able to completely restore
speech to the tongue-tied patient. The same
experiment was repeated with male patients,
and with the same promising results. It
would, of course, be premature to call Dr.
Charcot's wonderful .studies pre-eminently
successful in their immediate results as ex
amplified by thu strange experiments which
liave lieen made at the Salpetriere, but no
one oan doubt that, like Claude Bernard's
in another field, they open up a vast vista

Divorce is now so frei-uent that I make it a
rule never to ask a husband how his ab.tent
wife is, or u wife unaccompanied by her husband aliout him. But the great frequency is
owing to a long accumulation of legal
separations. The Mayors and Sub-Mayors
of arrondisseincnts are kept often for mariy
hours at a time as busy as they can be uu
marrying couples who come to have separations turned into divorces.
The life of a French lady separee dr. turn* et
de corps is a miserable one, inasmuch as the
separation of property can never in such a
case be absolnte, aud she is constantly
obliged to ask the husband, through an ngent
l-o sign paper*. His power to get lier locked
up in prison does not cease because of
separation, if he can show that 'his name is
being dishonored.'' However, no mnn of
honor troubles himself on this point, but in
the lower trading elastes the lives of women
who have married ruffianly husbands aud
got separated from them are often rendered
miserable by tbe base sort of dutectives cm-
ployed to dog them for blackmailing purposes.

The "greatones" of the earth have boon
justly designated as such for having achieved
ends and objects unattained by their fellow-
men. If we trace the rise and progress of
them, we shall see, that not only has their
success been owing to a new idea or original
suggestion, but in a far greater measure to
the systematic mode of carrying out the projects, and bringing them to a successful
issue. In no instance has this fact been
more truly exemplified than in the career
and lightning-speed progress to fame of
Thomas Hollowat, and the proportionate
universal dissemination of his Tills and
Ointmknt as specifics for nearly av*>ry disease of the human frame. We have been
fortunate enough to learn from his own lips
the modus operandi ot this wonder-working
system, which evinces its superiority not only
in having reached the acme of perfection,
but in keeping afloat thia mighty organization, a " harp of a thousand strings" to keep
in tune !
Let the reader conceive to himself the
possibility of creating and coutinuing in
working order a business from whose focus
two articles, with the simple cognomen of
Holloway's Pills and Holloway's Ointment, are kept peipctually in the hand and
within the reach of one in every hundred of
a community, and that community contained
in no less limit*- than the circle of the earth'*
broad surface. Now this is not only accomplished, but done with ease and harmony
withal; these almost ubiquitous remedies,
culled originally (as we have been assured)

Much more could be said on this point
than can come within the Bcope of this short
article, which we have thought it our duty
to devote to a casual glance at a great undertaking, that may have escaped the observation, and consequently the due appreciation of a portion of our readers ; a system
conceived as it wae, and carried out as it is,
by a master mind! We will at some future
time render some further interesting particulars with regard to this peerless and unprecedented enterprise!—Evening Netr*.
New Guiuea has heen a source of anxiety,
not only to the mother Country, but to
Australia, since a large slice of it is washed
by the waters of Jones Straits, which may
be regarded as an alternative route to the
Australian continent, and since, obviously,
if this part ofthe country were in the hands
of an enemy, that enemy would be able in
times of discord to work much harm upon
Australian Commerce. Though Australian statesmen are fully alive to this
contingency, they have not hitherto been
fully agreed fn respect of the proposals made
bythelmperialOovernment for administering the affair of New Guinea. At last, however, it seems that Victoria is determined,
af the saying goes, *'to take the bull by the
horns." by voting a contribution towards
administering the Government of that country, and a hope has been generally expressed
that the other Colonies will follow suit —

The reports that a conference nf the
powers on the Bulgsrinn question is about
to be held are unfounded, Hnssia is awaiting the resignation ofthe Bulgarian Regents.
When that event occurs a provisional Government which will be recognized by all tin-
powers will be established, and Russia will
adopt a conciliatory course und propose a
candidate for tho Bulgarian throne othor
than the Prince of Mingrelia. Notwith
standing Prince Bismarck's declaration in
the Heichstag it is believed that Germany is
not indifferent tn the affairs of Bulgaria.
Bismarck's reference to Bulgaria ts supposed
to have heen made with the view of warn*
ing Austria not to count upon Gorman support, and of encouraging Russia to take energetic steps towards a settlement in Bulgaria favorable to her own interest. Such
a Rnssiau policy, it is thought, would probably not be resorted to at the beginning, but
later Auflri-i-Hungury and England would
be unable to remain passive, and a conflict
would ensue which wonld weaken Germany's
neighbors and afford Prince Bismarck nn opportunity to advance Germany interests.
Russia, therefore, must bo c.uiti .n*, nnd not
be led a way to serveGeimany's interests.
In the Museum of the Propaganda, Koine,
is a map of the world mado over 350 years
ago by Diego Ribero, through which runs a
line of division. On one side of the line
the Spanish flag appears, on the other the

it is announced that tho world has boen "divided into two parts, accoriliugjto tho agreement made by their Catholic Majesties of
Spain and King John of Portugal." So tbs
powers of Europe have a venerable precede it

drawing lines throngh continents or IMS.
Oneof these lines which zigzags through the

Get many may do as she pleases, but she cannot jump over it without poaching on England's preserves. The "sphere of Germany s
influence " in East Africa also has just been
fenced in by imaginary lines extending from
the Indian Ocean to the great lakes. On
the north, England, carefully reserving to
herself tho best and shortest route tn Victoria Nyanza, can naze complacently upon
the jungles of her Teutonic neighbor. On
the south, Germany and Portugal have
stretched their Hue clear across the continent
to guard their respective " spheres " against
the dangers of collision. Meanwhile certain
remarkably depraved savages are trying to
play the mischief under nearly all the flags
of Europe, paying as little attention te
boundary lines as the world paid to the di
vitu'on made by their Catholic --Majesties of
Spain and King John of Portugal.
