It was for a xpeci 1 and most exclusive assembly that MadetDoiaslle was
bidden. Her Oracc the Llucliess ot

ctimplexi >n and sunken eyes, wherewith to set off this costume! Annette
noulil have suffered—say the loss of
half an eyebrow—before such a catastrophe would have been pel niltted beneath her jurisdiction. Besides, Lady
Montiessor expected that Mademoiselle
should iniike a faultless appearance

So Mademoiselle spent a. gav winter

sor's ambition ro-e on "Bgle pinions.
Nothing less than the ducal strawberry

peerle-a brow "f the peerlea- beauty,
the Hiinnrable Madeline. Lady Munt-
r ssor waa in re triumphant and   10)11-
nglv arrogant than ever.
Th • Honorable Madeline spent her
fift Ciiristinas in society at nn old baronial hall, in the midst of a goodly
company of titled men and women. She
went t" Christmas balls, and acted at
private theatricals, g t up splendidly,
almost aolelt on her account. The Honorable Madeline had been one of the
belles of the season. She was an envi. n,
flattered beamy, therefore she must be
defened to, and gratified in every way.

Monlreaso had ihe delightful task of
declining the piopo als f half-a scon

Margarrt, Jjtdy Moniressor, grew more

Soon the sprine cam-,  and at Easte

hi- little Minnie would come   home   tu
him ft-r a   while.
She went, but stay d a very shoii
linn-; she was not the Minnie who w nl
away on the May morning near twelve
months before.     Sue was   the   Honor-
ble Miss MuntrcBsors.to all intt nt and
purposes.    She   was   changed—ut erlv
banged, nadly changed, woeful y
changed.   She c uld not   live   in   the
aim old ahbev ho i e any longer; the
fev* r of fashionable life waa in her
t-eins, the restleuness, the yearning, the
i-nnui thut conies from prot'acted exen-
ment po se-strd her. She Wept often
nvei the bright, peaceful, sunlit pa-t,
but she con tl not go back to it. She
kissed the nld father and clung to bun,
tassionatelv sobbing, but sh? left him

Last In   llie   - when she ll   ard     winds of
eniieuling   ppotilion,   passiuna.e   promise , wild asseveritions,
Madeline had found one jewel of
iiiestimable price—so it seemed to her
—in the woilhless collection uf minds

prllH among all the dreary blank-,
whose sameness s ck>-ned her youin:
s ul. The dormant, chi led^heart in

Came, emblazoned on ancestral scrolls:"
Tin- London season was drawing to
its cloie; but then, were rumors of
coming event* which might wail have
delayed it a little,
Rumors in the fashionable papers,
rumors in the fashionable coteries, busy
rumors among the fashionable tradespeople, Milliners, jewellers, uphol-
sterers, coach-builders, were in a ferment. Perhaps it was tin- fervor of
maternal pity nnd maternal love, which
made Lady Montressor so eager to
heap up splendor upon splendor before
ber child; to do all that wealth, antl
art, and taite, and ingenuity could
levise to bind up tbe poor little bleeding hear;, and raise the drooping
golden head,   Trio late!
She roused her other married daugh-
t-rs'ire und jealousy. She aroused the
envy of all the fashionable mothers,
a id ahoijr fashionable childi-i'ip by tin;
height of her magnificenos, Sin- labored untiringly with head and hands, She
took off all the burden that might else
rest on the poor young soul, that shrank
from ii. The burden of receiving an
unwelcome homage, ruul the demonstrations ot' hated affection. She in
gretted sometimes, in her heart of
hearts, thai she could not have the
easy Eastern method of managing such
eini.nl matters, that she could not n-
peive professions of attachment, and
listen to pressing requer l • for speedy
marriage, in her own person for ber
daughter. Bnt although his Grace,
the bridegroom elect, was a fool, uinl a
good-natured one, bo hud some ideas
respecting his rights, lie ignored her
ladyship very often, and requested the
presence of the Honorable Madeline
instead.
She came when si ecially requested,
and patiently endured his I Irace ns best
she could. He was very good-natured,
and not quick-witted, as I have said
before, therefore ho was almost
satisfied.
But not quite. He. complained
sometimes; reproachfully to Madeline,
bitterly to her ladyship, who groaned
in spirit uud in body over her task,
and would ftiin have Hung
despair and disgust, bad it
for society,    whose    Argus
fixed on her. i^^^^^^^^
As it wrrs. she succombed not. She
pushed on her splendid preparations,
she began to draw long breaths of sa
tisfactlon, she recovered in a great degree her old .smiling arrogance, which
hntl been almost worried and alarmed
out of her. She resumed much of her
dictatorial  grandly-maternal   manner
toward her daughter, varied  now   and
then by a sharp outburst   of   vexation
or anxiety.
It was impossible to rouse Madeline
toa sense of her position. It soon lie-
came impossible to rouse her to anything. The fashionable physician,
with a degree less of suavity, and a
shade of uneasiness, prescribed total
change. The gorgeous preparations
had to be laid aside for a while, and
the "hymeneal altar"—as the fashionable morning papers described it—had
to recede in the distance. Her ladyship, with fear in her heart and bitter
ness on her tongue, abruptly left London for Switzerland, carrying the Honorable Madeline with her.
Here she seemed to recover a little,
until his Grace—who began to feel
rather ill-used, and no wonder—followed them, and her ladyship's trial began
afresh.
It may have been that the Improvement in her daughter's health, temporary as it was, deceived her; it may be
her own health was impaired by restlessness, and the fatigues of an unusually fatiguing season, and- that she
was neither as calm nor as judicious as
she used to be. I hope it was so. I
liaad rather think so than think that in
cold blooded wisdom she carried out
her design.
Be that as it lhay—it is useless now
Un ask whether it was m  ov   not—hor
ladyship returned to   Lnidon   in   the
latter months tsf autumn, aroused the
. n. I.- of eau"-r rra'l.-sirieii ami woin'-it
..'i-.-.l tin- envy, theadunration
snd iniiln-e of bar own est, and tin
ii.my sets below, and the few, vi-ry
few, abova lur.
Thi f-rnii.l |.r. piirnifiii. drew In a
conclusion; each incidental pan of ths
i..t..|-an.un- ansa Bat-ftp si out    It   s*
a 1 anting, tl. from 'Ir.- gri at .1.oral ser-
. ie■ in Wotmiiister Abbey to the
white satin and Bilver cord favors.
Onlf three days more, and Lady Mont-
MSser, iinh fuligul.le, admirable mother,
might fold her hands, arid say. "I have
done my duty"—iu tin1 highest tenss of
the word, according to the ethics of
society.
She would he.ve married her daughter In u duke, the tenth of his line, and
the thirty-fifth earl as well,
Only three days more of artificial
rousing of the crushed and beaten-down
spirit, of spurring on the failing limbs,
and holding up the weary head, that it
might keep its lofty place in the beaten track of the mill-wheel round of
society.
Only three days more of decking the
sacrifice to the vile Moloch of her avarice, and ambition, and lust of pride and
power -only three days—but ere they
sperl, by some twelve hours or SO, Mooch lost his victim, and the mother
tood by in wordless, blind, raging despair, to see her daughter  die!
Calmly and easily the wounded spirit slipped away, and her ladyship was
left to oomtenplate 'In-ruin her own
cruel hands had wrought.
The golden hair could be tortured
into artistic chere/ures no more: it lay
toff   and  unbound   in (lowing waves
over the snow-white pillows; the pure,
fair face, and violet eyes, would never
look on her mother again in timid
agony of supplication; the burning,
hectic beauty was white and calm, in
the long, calm sleep of death.

CHAPTER I.
"Rostvale, Ardhallv,
June 10th, 1869.
My own Dear Fatiikr,—
lonely without tne, and to tell you the
honest truth I shall not be sorry to get
back, However, 1 think it best to stay
the full time out, here, lest Aunt would
be angry and think me discontented.
She says she does not know who I am
like—not your side of the family. In
that i must resemble her, for she is not
an atom like you, dear Father.   She is
very strict, and keeps correcting nie all
day because I do nothing like a lady
She wears a widows nip as prim as you
please, a plain black dress with severe
eiiils and collar, and she is always
preaching about housekeeping, cooking, und stitching. Ever so many old
dames depend on her for advice. I
would not, 1 know, but then I am not
an old dame. The three boys are great
fun.    I like the Isiys very much.   Being
with them constantly is quite different
from meeting them now nnd then. 1 am
quite up in all their games, and they
are very kind in taking me out with
them wherever they go. There is one I
do no/ care about; in fact I dislike him.
It is Houghton, the second eldest. His
mother says he is a noble boy, but I
don't see any sign of anything except
iu ih ness in him. Now Jimmy and
Herald are quite the opposite. They
never take pleasure in annoying me,
but he does. Do you know, dear
Father, he behaved most shockingly to
me tile other day? lie pinched mv arm,
and called me a little chit. He did really, though 1 hadn't done anything to
hint. 1 am out with him black e»St
since.' I try to excuse him by reriioni
beringhe is not used to girls, but 1 can't.
lie serais to honor Aunt llella very
much. My opinion is that he will lie
an old maid nf a young man. 1 shall
lie sorry to leave tlie other two, who
do everything I like, bnt as lie i-t
either reading or teasing—unless, indeed, he is doing something for his
mother or lighting with his brother—I
never see him, so I shall not be lonely
after him, 1 have learnt to feather
the oar, Jimmy says, and tie'rald let me
shoot at cats ont of his air-gun. Aunt
l.ella says no lady is such a tomboy,
but- 1 don't eare. Thoit she tells me I
am an impudent child, hat Houghton
only laughs arid tells her to let me
alone. The country here is lovely, full
of hills and valleys, with such a nice
little river twistirtg its Way in and out.
My window opens on to tlie fields at the
liack. The view is beautiful, but the
sound of that Houghton carpentering
from six o'clock in the morning until
I get up, is hardly enjoyable. I do
dislike that boy, he is so very rude. He
made me cry three times. How is
Ellen getting on? Tell her please, to
send ai! my old cotton dresses here.
They will do splendidly for knocking
about. This town is quite poor. I
am the liest-dessed girl in church Goodbye, dear, darling Father. Write
every day to your own loving daughter.
"Cuss.
"P.S.—Send me more money, please;
1 am-sure to want it  before I return."

A native Indian dramatic company,
formed smile years siiii-e with a view to
raise the level of the ll. tlve drams, has
lately given in Bombay a perfnriuanoa
ofai. adaptation of "llie .School for
rlcffndul," in tinjerali. The comedy is
Btnteil to have been adapted lo Pitrsee
life and manners. ' Sir Peter Teazle"
in this version is known oa "liejoobwa-
wu," "Lady Teazle" as "Jnree." The'
latter characler was played by a bid, in
deference to the strong native feelini:
against the introduction of femsle performers. The brothers "Charles" und
"Joseph Surface" receive respectively
the names of IJailv anil Beloo. The
performance is stated to havo beeu
highly successful.
Andorre, or Andora. is not only the
oldest republic, but the oldest Suite, in
Kurope. Its present organisation dates
from Ihe end of the eighth century,
when Charlemagne, in his expedition
ugainet the Moors, conferred the piivi-
legesofan independent government on
the inhabitants of the Aniloru. valley,
midway between France and Spain, for
their fidelity aniidevotion In conducting
him through Ihe passesof the Pyrenees.
One of its two chief officers is named by
the French Government, another by the
liishop of Urge! iu Spain ; and it is in
connection with Ihe Bishop's nomination that a difficulty has arisen which
Hire.ttens to bring about a crisis ill the
affairs of the microscopic republic.
In illustiiilion of the quality with
which G^n. Gordon has to ileal, it is re
lated that in 1851 Ismail, son of Mehe-
metAli, the conqueror of the Soudan,
was ordered by bis father to collect the
tribute due from the tribes of Bedouins
of Shendy on the Nile, half wa^ between Berber and Khartoum. Ismail
summoned a chieftain known ub the Tiger, and told him to furnish a large amount of forage and fodder in lieu of a
money payment. Next morning Ismail
snd his I roups found with satisfaction
piles of the stuff demanded placed
around the camp, but their satisfaction
was short-lived The stuff was soon set
on Are, and those not burned wen-
picked off by men lying in wait behind
the burning piles. Mehemef, to avenge
his roasted son, razed the town of Shendy, but tlie Tiger made trucks iu good
time into the fastnesses of tlie interior.
In Paris no fewer thun 30,000 women
rind their living Ly making artificial
flowers. The majority of them, it is
said, ure real artists, Imitating nature,
it is suit), utmost to perfection, with exquisite taste und well-developed Imagination. At present a great nun.ber of
flower-mnkers are out of work, owing
partly to Mowers being out of fashion,
and partly to the enormous competition
in Kngland, Germany, Switzerland and
America, which increases with every
season. No country, however, can compete with France In elegance, delicacy,
and tusie, although the flowers are g.-n-
erally made after French models. It is
a curious fact, says a complacent Frenchman, that women who in Franco were
highly esteemed for their taste in the
manufacturing ami arranging of flowers
lose nil their ingenuity when, as n ,t
■infrequently happens, they go abroad
to pursue their culling,
Thel,300 employees of a large shipyard and machine factory at Bremen
were vaccinated lust siiinmer by order
of the police author ities, in consequence
of un outbreak ofsmall-pox among some
of the workmen. Since then nearly
200 of the persons thus inoculated have
fallen sick with jaundice in a severe
form, and the conclusion is drawn that
the disease was imparted through the
virus UBed in vaccinating. The circumstances of the case have attracted medical attention to an unusuul degree, It
has been found that none of the persons
taken into the employ of the shipyard
after lust summer's vaccination have
fallen sick, while some of thoso who
left the shipyard after being vaccinated
and sought employment elsewhere have
been attacked by' the disease in the
same manner as the workmen who remained. It is evident, therefore, that
the disease cannot be ascribed to anything in the local surroundings.
Numerous noblemen of Russian Poland have joined in publishing an interesting addreBS to their countrymen in
he Polish journals of tho city of Poeen.
They call upon tho Poles of "every station and of both Boxes to abstain from
all extravagant expenditure at the coming carnival festivities, especially in
costly dinners uud balls, and above all
to avoid the ruinous games of hazard to
which they are so strongly addicted.
They slso urge the practice of self-denial and economy in the future on all
occasions, and assort that reckless and
prodigal habits, indifference to money,
and lavish and extravagant display, are
turned to advantage by greedy foreigners, wr.o absorb tne wealth th.it tho natives of the country eo foolishly throw
away, ana thereby gradually become
puesessed of tho estates of the nobility
and crowd them out of their ancestral
homes. The Hurler Peananski, in urging
this address upon the at'ention of its
readers, states that the amount of land
in the Province of Poeen that is now in
the possession and ownership of the
German invaders exceeds that held by
the native Poles by nearly fifty per
cent. German hind-owners have acquired title to 2,01)8,400 acres, while in
the hands of the former masters of the
country there remain only 2,872,800
seres. Tbe struggle of the Poles, however, for the mastery of their native
land is a hopeless one. They are unable to resist the steady habits, perseve-
rence, industry, and energy of the Germans. They have been losing the control of their family estates year by vear,
and the entire province is rapidly slipping out of their possession.
A London millinery firm advertised
lately for a young lady, tall and of good

At Itnv stn-t*t, recently, before Sir James
j Ingham, Mr. Junks, proprietor, Mr. Dalton,
aeerettri, Sir Charles Cunningham, Mr. J.
!('. Wilkinson, .Mr. L. l>. Franklin, Mr.
; Lewi-, ii embers of ihe i-oililnrlte^; Mr. A.
I Filch. Mr. S. Nesrell, Mr. F, C. Mayers,
1 in. itiliera of the Park Chili, appeared to a
summons charging lliem with contraventions
of  the gaming acts.
Mr. Nt. .I.iIim W'ontner prosecuted, Mr.
Charles Kuasell, IJ. C, and Mr. Poland (instructed by Mr. George Lewi.) defended.
Sir James Ingham, in giving his decision
on the Btimmons, said that Mr. Jenka was
substantially charged with keeping a house
tor unlawful gaining, and the other gentlemen were substantially charged with aiding
and assisting him in doing so. The first
iiiit-itia.ii to determine was whv and for what
purp. se Mr. .leaks kept thia houso open.
Whs it an ordinary club at which gambling
was i-rtsiislly introduced or wsa it sub.Uut-
.ally a gambling house? The question could
be aiiaut red by ths evidence, ss the prorits
arising irom the wines, spirit*, and tobacco
were admitted lo be trifling, while the pro-
tit, from footl were absolutely no'.hiiig, the
kitchen being carriad on st a loss The sub-
seri|ttiois received from 270 member, st six
guiuesB a year produced annually £1,711,
which Mas subjected to vary large deductions for renta, taxes. Ac. It must be clear
t.. everybody that, sssclub for socisl purposes, the business would not be worth the
care and attention it would require.
What waa the ease with respect to gambling! Mr. Jenka received one per cent.
upon all banks, and contributions from sll
player, who stayed sfter certain houra.
Without going into particulars, the learned
magistrate calculated, on consideration of
the nun.ber of games that would be played
ordinarily in the course of an evening, that
Mr. Jenk , must at leaat realize from £45 to
£50 per night, and that his annual profits
must be £10,000. £12.000, nr perhaps many
thousands more. Therefore no one could
doubt that the house had been kept and used
for the purpose of gambling, for itschsracter
as a social club waa absolutely ancillary to
its but ness as a gambling house. The statute, however, required that there should
not only be gambling at an unlawful game,
and the main question was whether the
game of baccarat waa un unlawful game. It
must be admitted that, although a great
many games had been proscribed by the Legislature, baccarat had not, and whether it
was unlawful or not must depend on other
considerations.
Nnw, to consider what baccarat is—a
game of chance, tempered by a certain
amount of skill and judgment. Many games
of mixed chance and skill might be innocently played. Now it was important to
glance at the state of the old law. The
learned magistrate then quoted from Baker's
Abringment upon the subject of gambling
for recreation and common gamlng-huuscB,
which "promote cheating and other corrupt
practices, and incite to idleness and avari-
cioiisness persons whose time might otherwise lie employed to the general good of the
Community," The principle to bo extracted
was that gaming productive of the above
evils ought to be considered unlawful, and
he (Sir James) considered that the game of
baccarat wus not ' 'a game played for recreation, whereby a person is fitted for the ordinary duty of lile." A great deal hail boon
said upon the subject of largo and excessive
gambling, and the argument had been advanced that grimes which would be large and
risky and excessive for a man who was in
the position of a shopkeeper, would be nothing—tiiflea infinitesimal—in tho eyes of a
man of largo property. Granted that was
no, still there may be cases in which the
law could lie easily applied, and he thought
this was one.
Referring to tho rules of the Park Club,
which was to consist of noblemen, members
of the learned professions, ollicers of the
army and navy, aud gentlemen. Sir James
observed that a man at tho game in question
might lose with constant bad luck £1.000
before dinner, and a considerable sum in addition afterward. Would there be any difficulty in saying that that waa large and
excessive gambling in the case of members
rrf the learned professions, clergymen, Bishops, great I.-.tiling counsel of the day, or
even Judges with the largest salaries, physicians, and so forth? Gaining such aa had
been proved to exist would be large and excessive for any of thoso classes of men, and
still more so fur officers of the army or navy.
He had 110 hesitation in saymg, with reference to the geiitlr-men composing the club at
Mr. Jeuk's houae, that gaming had been
large and excessive, and that it came within
the principle rrf the law laid down by Chief
Justico Abbott in the case of "King vs, Rosier." But ho considered the case did not
stop there, and proceeded to refer at great
length to tho act of Queen Anne limiting
gambling to £10. In conclusion, the learned
magistrate held that all the parties, with the
exception of Mr. Dalton, had been guilty of
gaming. He fined Mr. Jenki £500, tho
members of the committee £500, and each of
the players £100.
Notice of appeal was given.
Mr. Lewis asked Sir James Ingham, on
behalf of Mr. .lenks, who, it was stated, had
no desire to infringe the law, whether whist
and other games might be played ponding
the appeal.
Sir James Ingham declined to express an
opinion, but observed that Mr. Jenks had
belter act under the advice of hit solicitor.

Despite the closeness with which artificial
flowers reseinbla natural blossom., fashion
in England some time ago decreed that ladies sliould adorn their dresses as well as
their walls with natural dowcra. Mow artificial ll..tiers aro again in vogue in London,
but those which fashion favors imitate tbe
fragrance as well as the appearance of natural flowers. Even the clove-like perfume of
tho carnation haa been closely imitated by

chance of being picked up by some psssing
ship, and after enduring many hardships
they were picked up by a whaler.

satisfaction. Stages now leave New Westminster and Bonson'l at nine o'clock, connect ing at the intersection of the Clarke
trail and thu main road, the fare from this
point to either end of the route being fifty
cents. At four o'clock in the afternoon the
above programme is repeated, so that we
virtually have connection twice ft day with
New Westminster. Thus, passengers leaving hero iu the morning via the Clarke trail,
can reach New Westminster by 10 a. m.,
tram-act all necessary business and arrive
back iu Port Moody by 0 p. m., and Westminster people rice versa. The fare for thu
entiie distance by stage remain* the same.
A boAT Rack for*'-!ja sidn, between J.

A wag suggested to us, tbo other day,
that the importation of a ijuantity of "short

might prove a prnlitable speculation, now
that there nie Church services twice uvcry

afflicted with attch "picayuni-oV ideas.

A Ri;i'AiHbh Jail.—Mr. Wmtemute  was
at Wdrk last week making a  number of very
necessary  repairs to our city jail;   and  this
)■ what has been done.    The outside walls of
1 the cells have been double boarded over, the
boards being held in position  by a strong
cleat spiked firmly to thu sill; new  flooring
has been laid   down  in.iidu, and  the  inside

The man Hunter, who was sentenced to

Divine SkBVICBs. Port Moody's first
Episcopal Service brought out a goodly number of both sexes on Sunday morning last,
although the threatening appearance of the
weather doubtless deterred a number from
at*ending. Hev. C. Uiancliurd preached an
eloquent sermon on "Doing iu»Y* Wdi,'
which was listened to with great attention.
Mrs. Williams acted as organist very aooep
tahly and the congregation joined h amy
In tho singing. A collection to defray expenses; was taken at the close. At '2 p. m,
t!ie Meth-dist Sunday school convened with
a gi od attendance of If ltie folks, nnd enough
"children of i\ larger growth" to form a very
respi et.iblu bihle i luss. At the close of the
sell- ol the edifice was again filled tn the door
with people fri in Port Moody and surrounding settlements, who listened to the Rev.
Robs-in'ssermon with pleasure and attention.
All three of these religious institutions seem
to bu iu a fair way to luoceed.
AM A^UATir KvKNT.~The exciting event
of tho week was the boat race on Monday
last between W, Sincerbeau aud D. Blsok,
for a purse of $50 a lUlo, The sky was over
oast with heavy clouds and there was a brisk
north-east breeze blowing, as thi two eon-
It.stunts took their place.--, and at Ll20 p 01.
they started isp the long pull from the Rocky
Point to thi railroad wharf and return—a
distance ol three miles. At the word "go,"
hoth got away iu good shapo, with Binoer-
heatl leading, but before a hundred yards
had beeo covered, the boats fouled, and they
returned for a fresh start. This time thoy
took a wider distance apart, nnd got away
well together, Siucerbuan again gradually
drawing ahead and maintaining Ms load till
the finish. He rounded the buoy in V,\ minutes, and his opponent half a minute later,
and then came the struggle for victory.
Roth wert pulling 30strokes to the minute,
wluuh waa soon increased to 40, and still the
gap between the two boats did not lessen,
and the excitement on shore gradually increased. Sincerbeau passed the winning
post about three boat lengths ahead, having
made the distance in 23* minutes. Both
men came in quite fresh and in- good humor,
and expressed a desire to have another contest in a short time. The race was witnessed
by a large crowd, including several ladies,
and the winnei was warmly received by his
frienda at the conclusion. Messrs. McCrae
and Chas. Murray acted as referees, and
Constable Sharpe as judge. Several other
racea are on the tapis between local Han-
lam*, and Port Moodiaus may expect much
sport from this source the coming summer.
Would it not be a good idea fto form an
aquatic club here; and when Hanlan returns
from Australia he might be induced to give
us an exhibition of his skill on the harbor.
There is no body of water in the world better suited for boat racing than the harbor of
Port Moody. Anil we hope to seo thia
healthful' amusement become daily more
popular. |

BUM blaOB wlncli .nt BOW In operation in the
factory. To attempt anything like a coin-
pkto deecripti it is entirely bOfOsd our
technical or practical knowledg", but we
learned sutlieient to convince us that the
machinery in thu new Sash ft Door Faetory
i-i the most complete wu ever saw. The
great advantage secured by the company
was in the purchase of every article connected with tho machinery, fiom one firm—
1 owau ft Co., Gait, Canada, and thu rusult
ii« that the whole faetory appears to havo
boon built with the machinery in it; every
Wheel and every pulh?y occupying j nst the
right space and of course, the right place.
The engine is a specimen of perfection (indi- j ae
eating 50 horse power) and work* like a
charm; the different machines, all of the
most modern com-tructiou, planing, moulding, tenanting, ftai with the various sows,
are all iu proper rotation and in such order
that the wdrk can be passed from hand to
bind with the least possible loss of time.
The factory is constructed so that it can be
enlarged without moving the present machinery, and any addition can be operated
with the assistance of a few additional pul-
Iu\s ami bands. So far, the machinery has
only been worked on trial, which proved
perfectly satisfactory, and in the eourse of a
few days w ill probably be turning out work I This par

Makch. I Ith, 1S84.
Congress has now been iii session oxer three

very little legislation has thus far been jicr-

joint resolutions havo pass d both Houses,

Incur.'tipation of  the legislative mind with

Several prominent members of the Wo*
man's SuilViigc Assoeiatlun which held a four
days convention here during ihe week, made
addresses Saturday before the Hou"e.hidi
ciary committee ; their objective point being
a sixteenth amendment to the Constitution.
It is noticeable that the movement has pasK-d
in a great measure mit of the domain of ridicule and is met seriously by those who have
to deal with tendencies of society. The leaders snow more temperance and discretion
than in ihe earlier stages of the agitation.
The managers are trying to extend their organization on a system that will bring the
cause into universal notice. They propose
to enter tho political field fat a solid body,
and use all their resources to defeat candidates not in sympathy with them.
The whiskey men got the set bac< they
feared by the antagouifn. of an appropriation
bill. (Jreat interest was mottifeeted in the
attempt of the friends nf the bonded whiskey lull t • eetthifct measure before the House
i Saturday. There woe do surprise when
Mr. Morrison's move to go into c -pjmittee of
the whole un reveuue bills was followed by a
motion from Mr. Townshend,' that the
Houbego into committee on Appropriation
bills. The Voting was watched with uiternet,
f.r theru was au impression tbat the result
would test the sense of the House not only
on the whiskey question, but also on the
hilifv of I. hairman Randall to rally a majority in case He* should wish to pot the Appropriation bills in the way of the low tariff tax
reduction bill. The vote was in favor of
taking up the Postal Appropriation bill. It
cannot however bo claimed that any issue
was decided by the vote. A large number
Of Democrats "voted in the negative with the
Republicans,' and an almost equally large
nmnd'-r of KepnMicans with the body of
Democrats. ,

If the authors of cabled despatches c.in be
trusted to ascertain not only the bare fact
that the Cabinet h-id a fteeffilff on Friday,
but also what took place there, we now
know the plan of action definitely adopted
by the Gladstone (lovernm-ht with regard
to all the questions, political and fiscal, to
which recent events in the Nile country
have given rise. Let us look at come of the
resolves ihus deliberately Fanned and inquire how they can he reconciled with the
previous professions and proceedings of the
Ministry. We have only to boot in mind
that the fundamental principles proclaimed
by Mr. Gladstone are Egypt for the 1'gypt-
i:nis, the Soudan for the Soudanese, and—
though this logical corollary has rolled less
glibly on his tongue—Abyssinia for the
AbyMjinians.
To dispose of the least important subject
6i>t, let us take up the three main features
of tbe programme in inverse order. Evidently, if the Soudan is to be given up to
native rulers on the ground that the latter
were unjustly dispossessed by the EjfVfJtianr.,
all the territory wrenched from Abyssinia
by the'Khedive's representatives should also
be surrendered. But all that Lord Grnn-
ville offers King John is two harbors on the
Red Sea in the sou'hern part ot the Ahys-
sinian littoral, together with a strip of land .
ih southern Soudan.   The width of this sfrif It0 ™ ¥u$,c Bus"w"

"Why, then take no note of him, but lot

We come now- to the Gladstoniao appli-
oition of the maxim, coined soon after the

Arabi Pssha, "Egj'pt for the Egyptians."

Gladstone turns a deaf ear to the groans of
the/sfloAsen, ami sssnrresthe8ultan that t.i-
rights will 1«? reapeotdd. Bnt what is to he
donealiout the heavy deficit disclosed by the
Cairene budget, ever since the revolt of
Arahi, and alarmingly Oatgravatod bv the
military expendiiurc of the last year? Now,
surdy. is the tunc for lifting a portion of
load from the shoulders of those meek
Egyptians to whom, as wc are told bo often,
Egypt is at last t» be restored, by subjecting foreign residents SS w'ell as natives to
taxation, nnd by lowering the interest on a
foreign debt for which the present taxpayers
never had anything like a fair equivalent.
That recourse wouhl be had to such expedients seemed the more likely at tl is time
because they were urgently recommended
bvthe British agent at Cairo, Sir Evelyn
Baring, as the sole solution of a pressing
fiscal problem. But the Cabinet, ot their
meeting on Friday, we arc told, decided
that Sir Evelyn Baring's scheme of financial
reform should Ik- indefinitely suspended,
which, in the face of the immediate exigencies of the situation, will be rightly construed as a cowardly method of rejection.
By this performance Mr. Gladstone set the
finishing touch upon the comment which his
actions add to his professions, and made it
patent tothe world that the end he really
has in view is "Egypt for the bondholders."

The Columbia River works like a
beaver to destroy Portland and make

deposits which will ultimately widen

The war continues in Egypt, but
the unfortunate wretches have no
chance against British troops. The
sooner the war is over and Egypt
annexed the better for all. The work
would have been finished long ago if
such a man as Palnierston or Beaconsfield were prime minister. It is a
crime to prolong a war for a year if
it can lie finished in a week, and
surely we could end this Egyptian affair in a month. The honor und glory
of conquering Egypt is worth nothing,
but the valley of the Nile is a grand
prize and should be secured at once
for the sake of the empire and the
people of Egypt, who will prosper
when they get rid of Pashas and human peacocks and get plain honest
Britishers to develope their industry.

[From tlie Mai laud Ouardlaa.l
The Colonist and its echo here, honest John's paper, have made hysterical

the Settlement resolutions. Everyone

Letter will testify tli'ir appreciation of
bis s.-rvii-es wlien he returns, to this
city. Senator Mclnnes lias, also,
proved himself true to the interests of
the country by  his  opposition   to the
iniquitous Settlement WI', In the Senate, That the Sitthment bill may
ultimately pass, is quite on the cards,
because the pres-nt Government nl
Ottawa have a very small opinion of
this Province, in consequence of the
kind of Government the people think
fit to set over them; and the opposition, headed by Blake, have always detested the Province asbeing too highly
favored, when in fact we have never
received what belongs to us, and they
think that we are going to suffer a great
loss through the Settlement bill, hence,
tliey will let it slide. Let us then look
at the results. The coal measures: will
be in the hands of a monopoly, and
they will proceed to monopolize every
other industry on the I- land. Some of
these industries an- 1,beady monopolized, but the reign of these little monopolies will be short when Huntington, Crocker & Co. enter the field. A
few Victoria traders will do pretty
well during the construction of the line,
but there will be a general flight as
soon as it is finished, because Huntington it Co. will undersell them as
soon as they are coinlV rtably settled.
As for Victoria it will begin to drop
the moment the line is through, because
there will be really nothing to support
it. The ships will all go to Nanaimo
where all the commerce will centre for
the Island. The Graving Dock, which
would, had it been completed, have
been a constant source of attraction,
and the nirans of a livelihood for an
industrial population, is now no more,
never complete it. The "Colonist," in
its impudent attempt to deceive the
public, stated the other day that th.-
construction of the dock was one of the
terms of union. But the "Colonist"
knew that the Settlement bill tears the
terms of union into shreds, more particularly iu relation to the Graving
Dock. But if the passing of the Settlement bill is on the cards, its rejection is equally so, and in the event of
its rejection Victoria must take a back
scat. Tho passion for over-riding
every principle of right and justice so
far as tlie mainland is concerned, has
shoekod and disgusted everyone with
Victoria, and immediate effort* will he
made to shake ourselves free of any
controlling influence which Victoria
may have on this continent. In this

nothing because the people of Nanaimo, Comox, and other places will also
he kept as much as possible within
their own bounds. Then the Graving
Dock will of necessity be abandoned,
because if there is anything upon which
mainland nil tubers seem to agree it is in
Iheir determination to oppoae any more
work being done on the Graving Dock.
This, then, is what the honest John
Government have done: they have embittered the people all over the country
against the Graving Dock, iiml they
have in this way prevented about three
quarters of a million in hard cash being spent, almost, in the heart of Victoria, besides the maintenance of the
institution, whoever had to pay for it.
As the naval station will be fixed at
Burrard Inlet, thero will be no more
use for a dock or anything else at Es-
quiinalt. Tiie question of the capital
is bound to come up immediately, so
that when that and the courts and
public establishments are moved to tlie
mainland, Victoria property will go
for a very small price. All this has
been brought about by that horrible
shadow, the Settlement bill, for which
Victoria loses all the substance of her
present importance and her possible future greatness. We have all along
pointed out that honest John was the
very spirit of ill-luck, and that all who
had anything to do with him were sure
to suffer disaster and misfortune How
truly we have spoken the people of
Victoria" will soon learn, and they will
heartily curse the day when their evil

appear to have had much effect. The
quartz ledge ot Burns Mountain may
be as stated, very rich, but it will require a good deal of capital to develop
it: we hope that the cupitul may be
found. The Bridge river diggings have
been spoken of, but they do not appear
to be attracting much atta-ntion. There
is u strong probability thut u number
of our experiiiiri'l miners may find
their way to the Kocky Mountains; the
accounts from that quarter an certainly
of a highly-colored description, but we
are inclined to think there is some
basis in truth, because the principal
benefit from any rush would certainly
go to the Canadian Pacific railway, and
we do not believe at this early stage of
their career tliey would attempt to disseminate false reports. As to the
boundary question, it will not bother
the miners in tho least, since it has
been decided by the Government at
Ottawa to make their mining code as
liberal as any in the world. The bosh
published by the   Colonist to  the effect
that Premier Smithe had gone to Ottawa
to settle this question, is like all the
other statements in that paper. The
simple fact is, that the Dominion Gov
eminent will settle the question of
boundary at their own convenience
and to suit themselves notwithstanding any statements to the contrary, and
it will be all the better that it is so,
because tbe law will be vigorously administered by the Dominion authorities, backed by the mounted police, so
that our own miners will have fair play.
It must be remembered that there is a
very strong impression that the Cieur
d'Alene mines are likely to prove a
fizzle, and the natural result will be that
a large number of men habituated to
crime and without means, will flock to
the Rocky Mountain mines. Supposing
these mines were established as being
in British Columbia, what would we
do 1 One thing we know would be
done: honest John would send some of
his pets there, and a general mess would
most surely follow. So far as information has reached us, there are few
places where alluvial diggings will pay;

But then, the range being established
as containing the precious metals, the
extent is so great that hundreds of opportunities will  be offered to explorers
who understand the business, for making a fortune. Like the adjoining Selkirk range, tlie Rockies are permeated
with metal mostly goltl and silver.
There will be this great advantage for
the unlucky ones, that tliey can always
earn enough to buy food on the railway, if they are "strapped;" but if a
tithe of the stories an- true relating to
the quartz ledges, there will soon be
plenty of work. We shall reap very
little of the rich harvest of trade in
this Province until the railway from
Kamloops is completed; hut it will lie
very good when that takes place, be
cause we can supply them cheaper than
they can obtain their requisites elsewhere, from the shortness of the carriage by railway. It will be well to
remember, however, that we have very
rich mines of our own in the Selkirk
range, which can only, however, be
opened when the railway penetrates
these rugged mountains. The Selkirk
range is known to be very rich in tho
precious metals, both quartz ami nlln
vial diggings; the great obstacle hit hi r
to, has been the difficulty of conveying
Supplies and the necessary appliances
for quartz crushing, in the absence of
the railway. Ho soon as trains begin
to run through the Helkirks, a large
number of our miners will proceed
there, many of them to resume work
on clnims they were compelled to abandon years ago. There are gold and
silver quartz ledges and alluvial diggings in the Selkirks, sufficient to employ the whole of our mining population for many years; it will be, in fact,
a second Cariboo, and will attract a
vast population to the adjacent country
from Kamloops to tbe Columbia. Anyone acquainted with the fine country
about the Shuswap lake con understand
how favorable it is to the reception of
a large numlier of people, and how
profitable farming would be if there
was a good market once established.
The climate is probably the best in the
Province: the winters are shorter and
less severe. We once thought that it
was the proper place for the Capital of
the Province, and it may lie so decided
still. That the Capital will be returned
to the mainland, either for the joint
Province or the mainland alone, no
sane person can dotilit, and it would be
hard to find a more central position
than Kamloops or the vicinity. Aside

it would be far more desirable that the rebels

than that, discouraged hy the results of their

should break up, or withdraw into the des

A peculiar gambling case came before
the Bow street Police Court In London
on the 16th April, 1S12. Two men, one
tnll and stout and the other Bhort, were
charged under the following remarkable circumstances : A Bow street offlci r
named Croker was passim? along thu
Hampstead road when lie observed the
two prisoners ut the top of a wall. A
moment later he saw to bis horror the
tall man hanging hy his neck from a
lamp post attached to the wall, being
that instant tied up and turned oft* by
the short man. Croker rushed up £>
the spot, when the lull man fell tothe
ground, tlie handkerchief with which be
had been suspended having fortunatelv
given way. Croker produced his staff,
said he wus an officer, and demanded an
explanation of the proceeding ; (he only
reply he received to his inquiry being
a violent blow on the nose fro n thu tail
man, which nearly knocked him buck-
ward. The short man ran away; but
the officer, procuring assistance, tiiiin-
flged to capture both. They explained
to the bench that thpy worked on canals.
They bad been tossing for money, and
afterward for their clothes. The tali
man, who was hanged, won the other's
jacket. trousers aim shoes, .bey then
agreed to toss up which should hung the
other, und the short man won. They
got upon the wall, and the tall man paid
his debt of honor by allowing the short
man to hang him. They both agreed in
this; and the tall man said if he had
wou the toss he would assuredly have
hanged his friend.

reformed boots, shaped to the foot, with
broad points, low, broad heels, and an

Itvl-'.'i. always took his notes of evidence in
shortln nd, and he was therefore enabled to
get tin ough cihos with most exceptional rapidity. At Bristol Assizes, a few years before his retirement, he was once quite floored
by hi.* own hieroglyphics, and after a delay
of son e minutes he turned for aid to the re-
port ets'box. "Can you gentlemen kindly
assist me with a word here? 1 have not put
in the vowel", und what I have got in my
book locks as if the witne.-s had said: 'Go
and ci U tho bai y.'" The witness had been
referring to a policeman, which the Judge
him rendered  "bobby.'*
There is a good old fairy story of a girl
wW received from the good people the mar-
vellcus property of dropping pearls and diamonds from her lips whenever she spoke.
Tlii-- fairy gift has found a rival in a recent
prat eut to tho Pope of a fish made of solid
gold, studded with rubies, which, whenever
it cpens its mouth, pours coins of virgin gold
into the hands of its fortunate owner, but
unfortunately it has not the gift of durability, aud the Pope must be spariug of his
tc-ts.
L'Assistance Publique of Paris took charge
in 1882, as is shown by a recent report, of
1)48 bad children. Of these, 70; were taken
ti> the director bv their parents, 150 were
jvnt hy the police, and 35 committed by
magistrates. Theso children are sent to
trade bcIkioIb, und are assisted by the Gov-
eminent until able to make au honest living.
A small portion of their wages is retaned by
thu Government to aid in -securing them
from future want The system is regarded
iih a preventive measure against poverty and
crime.
The new Queen of Madagascar is young,
of a pi; lining expression of countenance, and
singul -ly digniiied and ladylike. On the
OOOaii' n of her inauguration she wore a dress
uf ivory satin, with much uold embroidery.
She hi d a train two or three yards in length
of h.'u.dsome, dark crimson velvet, spangled
with uold, borne by six officers of State. The
gold ciown was already on hor head, and
thus she stood upon the throne. The Prime
Minister i» her wedded husband, and old
enough to be her grandfather. She is the
third Queen who haa been his wife.
Gen. Gordon, the commander of the English fi rccs in £gypt, thus expresses his views
as to a future life : "I think that thia life ia
only a series of lives, w hich our incarnated
part has lived. I have little doubt of our
having pre-existed ; and thut also in the time
of our pre-existence we were actively employed. So, theretore, I believe in our active employment in a future life, and like
the thi ught. We shall, 1 think, be far more
perfect in a future life, and, indeed, go on
toward perfection, but never attain it.
A recent advertisement reads as follows :
"If tho gentleman w ho kee. s the bhoe store
with a rod head will return the umbrella of
a young lady with whalehone ribs and au
iron handle to the slate-roofed grocer's shop,
he will hear of something to his advantage,
as the same is the gift of a deceased mother
now no more, with tho name engraved on
it."
French Guiana, about one-fourth the size
of Franco, had but 27,000 population 1867,
and in 1881 i.i.in had dwindled down to 19,-
000, exi'lii.s-i'v v of convicts aud garrison. Th*i
area cultivated steadily diminishes, but in
1881 gold was mined to the amount of 81,
133,000. Neither British nor Dutch Guiana
it flourishing, but they are more so than
French Guiana. Capital and labor are both
conspicuously absent in the last,
