Skirting a email bakehouie, we passed
through a gatn into the garden. Tbi.
was only in course of formation, and
wag evidently the pride of tbe padrona.
It waa delightful 11 find tweet-p»a« nnd
mignonette growing in a nicely laid out
border; indeed, in tliii delicious air and
at thin eI*vilion, mtny Euglith flowers
would flourish luxuriantly. My hostess
possessed a large collection of garden
•eedi, and the was trying experiment
with all in their tarn.
Among the deciduous plants, I was
ahown a pretty flowering shrub called
the "Spinarosa." I perceive, by the
nay, that a perfumery-houae in London
ia advertising a new acent which bears
this name. May all success attend it!
for nothing can be more delicate than
the fragrance of tbe Spinan sa flowe ;
and, like pure water, its specific virtue
f-Tnipcrcepuble, though perfection ia
the virtue which characterises it ai a
whole. The padrona had imported two
of these ahrubs from Guatemala, but I
believe the plant is to be feund in the
Honduras a'e-r.
'lime   will  not halt   even  in Vera
Cruz, and   soon Marcos   hunted me to
the garden, with the   intimation  that 1
must mount epeedily.    On rrturning to
ihe house to  complete   preparaiions, I
found amongst my effects some cotton
piint,   which I   presented   to my kind
iioflur.i.,   hs it wai   enough to   make a
dress fnr her little  girl.    I had bought
the material, together   with  aorue good
embri idery, to make a   short dressing-
gown   for myself—to  this, foitunately,
made the gift a respectable one.    As to
accepting any remuneration in the shape
of money fur  any   entertainment,   the
kind creatuie quite repudiated the idea.
"Sbe was so happy to receive  one witb
whom she   could   converse,"   she said;
'and was I not a 'Soltera?' snd why waa
this! and oh I the world was so hard."
Thus speaking, the padrona   walke
at the mule's   head, and   led   me down
through the broken fences which bounded
the untidy land outside her domain into
a lovely   dell,   down which   sparkled a
tunning stream, babbling musically, and
seeming lo cast up diamonds of yellow
light upon Luisa's hoofs, as she splashed
into the centre   of its   bed.    There we
parted, with  the sisterly   kiss of peace,
and I   carried away   with   me a  very
tender memory of Vera Cruz.    Ay dimi!
Vera  Cruz, True   Croat.    May not its
signification in part   he realised   in all
the  realms   of  enrth,  where   parting,
even with a stianger,   gives the  heart a
The path became very stony in a
couple of hours after leaving the dell,
and we pronounced it to be only inferior
in disagreeables to a valley of flint, some
miles in length which we traversed after
wu had long left Comayagua behind
Here Luisa was startled by a heifer
I which plunged out of a hedge on hearing our approach, and so look me into
ihe depths of a thicket, wherein I lost
my veil and the brim of one side of my
hat. This lois may appear too insignificant to record; but the effect of this
slight accident was, that at night, the
skin ol the one side of my throat and
face wet peeled awat in strips, and it
was some days before the pain quite
left me. Sueh is the tlrength of the
n'eice heat of the noonday sun in Honduras.
The penalty of our late start was paid
not only by having to sufT-r great heat
but alao hy ths necessity of rapid travelling We had literally wandered up
hill and down stream. As the evening
waned we found ourselves entering
upon a large tract of plain upon which
nothing seemed to grow but tall grass of
a pale-green colour, and a few distorted
What was   that in ths distance!   It
ippeartd like the   monument   of a woman placed   on   a high   pedestal,  and
nearer   was  another   which bore   the
form of  a lion   couohant.   Now   we
paised a group of enormous boulder-like
stones, some of which   present an   uncouth   and   grotesque   lesemblance io
ions and   to dogs.   Far  away on the
plain, detached and   scattered, 10-e up
those enurmods   stones; some   withou
any   definable   shape — others,  again,
gigantic and weird-like iu the deepening
shadow of the evening.    I remembeied
that we had to cross over a bend of the
river Palenque, and the  thought datts
my mind  that   these   stone-  might io
some way belong   to the   curious ruins
found by Mis.   St ;phens and   Cather-
wood in their researches   through Cen
tral America, and al Palenque especially.
But so far as I   bave teen, these stones
bear no sculpture, nor do  tbey  convey
the idea that they have ev»r belonged to
temple or   palace, or tbat   tbey   hive
been connected in one   building of anv
Presently I baited with the intention
to examine a small atone, close to which
I paised; but Marcos prevented this,
witb tbe strongest determination ex
pressed in the grip of his lean brown
band. "Bs an mal lugar" (it is a bad
place), said he,"un luflardelos mueitos"
(a pltee of the dead). 1 attempted no,
more, for ths increasing dirknets and j
the silence of my attendants cmiimuiii-
cated a chill to my own spirits. The
only clear idea in my mind was, that
we were not far from Omos, an I I 'mot
is not iimiiv miles away from C'o| an—
tbe place whereat .Mr. Stephens, if I
mistake fi'-l, met v ith the most elaborate
of the sculptured idols.
My attendants, though they made no
ign, were evidently acred. Tliey
kept the animals clo'er together, and
we proceeded at a very brisk trot. Une
of the shapes reminded me so much of
the story in the 'Arabian Nights' of
the man who was transformed pait'ally
into marble, that, in association with
ibe surroundings, I began to wonder if
this also were not an Arabian Night's
dream. '
The reit were a little in front of me,
for the path had narrowed, and we
we.e passing on the side of a clump of
trees. Suddenly a dark mass, preceded by a rush, fell on I.uisa's neck.
She neatly jumped her own height from
the ground, and I mechanically drew
the revolver from the leather pocket
which hung at my girdle and fired,
throwing the weapon down In a fright at
what I had done. The macheks of tht
two men were in the body if the mass
simultaneously, and I leared thnt 1 had
fired into the tail of what on inspection
turned to be a coyote. A coyote here
is said to be the offspring of the dog
and the fox. They are dangerous if
met with in packs. This turned out to
be a half-starved creature, which might
have been attracted by some dried
venison-meat which was dangling at the
saddle of the macho mule which Eduardo
was leading just in front. To my surprise, Luisa was ml in the least testive;
the macho, on the contrary, made
violent attempt! to wrench the rein from
i Id uni dr. and holt.
"Now, Senora, said Marcos, as he
picked up the revolver, "you must ride
quick, very quick; this beatt may bave
a mate. They aie seldom alone, and
that might be perilous. Vamos, de-
spacheo" (Let us go with speed).
We mounted accordingly, Marcos
flying ahead with rapid step, snd we
following at a good pace, till we had
left the plain behind us. It »at nearly
dark when we drew up. at the gate of a
maizefield, through which Marcos
passed; for he had with hit hawk'- eye
descried the roof uf a dwelling jutting
out just beyond it,
I! din;' through the lir-ld, wm came
in front ofthe build ng, which whs low
and coveied by an nvrriianging iharch
—this serving evidently us a verandah.
The whole place looked *o miseralilr- that
I urged the guides t r rids on, nr even
to try and reach Potrerillos (our a'.nion
for San Pedro Sula), ss ihe moon was
full, and the road |. rfectly plun. By
this time an old iimn, followed hv his
family, came to the edge of a wide
trench, which separated the garden and
hut fioni where we waited, an I inquired
what we wanted.
Man-o.s told him to put hack hia three
lean dogs, which barked funou-ly the
whole time, and then he would tell
A discussion ensued, and the up-shot
was that we must decide to remain
where we were, at least till daybreak.
"It is not safe to go on, ' the uld man
said; "the malagele (had people or
robbers) are about in these parts." It
was for that reason that he had dug this
wide trench before his garden, and put
his dogs to sleep in it ut dusk.
.Discretion  at this juueture  was err
tainty ibe better pa,t of valour; and the
plank which belonged to this excavaiion
being laid across it, we entered   tbe do
minions of Senor Juan Musave".    This
individual prided  himself upon being a
Spaniard of pure race, and  told us that
he belonged  to  Catalonia.    A cursory
glanct at   the  premises   convinced me
ihat I had better lie down, as   I was in
my hammock;  and ao this article was
swung   in  the   cart-shed,   which   had
been  newly  thatched.    The   youngest
dog turned   out to be   a most friendly
little bea.t,   and a few   scraps  which I
gave him made him a (inn ally: wbeie-
upon, an intimacy being established, he
laid hiirself down under the hammock
—and I tbink   he was   quite  equal to
making a   dash, on my   accounl,   upon
any intruder  who might   venture  into
tbe shed, or molest me in any way.
At the earliest glint of dawn Eduardo
thrust in his face, and announced that
there was nothing to eat, and tbat the
mules (which had certainly been better
off) could be ready in an hour.
"We cannot get any milk here,
Senora," tbe lad continued, "until the
vaca (cow) comesdown from ber pasture
on the hillside."
When it thia vaca likely to appear)" I asked. "Does not tbe woman know!"
The reply was conveyed in that
inimitable shrug of the shoulders and
flourish of the hand with which tbe
Hondureians amwer inquiries tnd solve
"What do these people live on themselves!" I persisted; for I was weak
from want of food, and I thought the
cow might be as necessary for some of
tbem as  for me.
"Oh, raw plantains, dried venison,
and a kind of soup made of maize- Tbe
men had thia before going to work."
"Then there is nothing for us to depend upon but this vaca," I said. "Can
she not ba searched fori I would pay
for it."
"She will come when she chooses,"
replied Eduardo, never making tbe least
siUinpt or suggestion that be might go
and seek the animal hiuis-lf.    "I have

Ten o'clock found us at Potrerillos,
and after making inquiry, we rode up
to the house of Monsieur St. Laurent,
who, it appears, held tho position of
li'-rnl iimn or' lli" town. This position
throughout Honduras is a post very
difficult to define or explain; and how
tbe individual occupying it arrives at
this dignity, I found it equally impossible to fathom. It depends neither
i n age, nor talent, nor length of ivsi-
deuce in the place. I drew the conclusion at last, that some one individual
possnilillg a little more energy than
usual, combined with some commercial
s ukc in the country, assumed the
leadership of the   community,   and the
community fell in with tbe arrangement
as a matter of course, it being a convenience generally, and a saving of
trouhle to all.
Monsieur   St   Laurent received   us
very courteously,    hut   he   imparted a
■piece of   Information which,  for   the
time lining,   was highly   unsatisfactory
to ine, and   this was that   the railway
between   Potrerillos   and San    Pedro
Sulu was  quite   unsnnicealile;  in fuct
it hud become SO broken down that for
some months  the   railway  plant  had
been talceii nwuy, and nothing was left
but  the   rails   and   a   broken   down
bridge or two.    "We have now- to ride
toSaii Pedro Sula," said M. St. Laurent;
"the road is vm-y good, und   it is under
fifty miles distance.    Rest  here, if you
like, tonight,   and   set off   to-morrow
morning; vuu will then reach San Pedro
Sula easily in the afternoon,"
Mui  Muivos here   intervened,    He
had been engaged, he said, by contract
to take the lady to the railway station

railway station: further, be WM to be
paid in the linnd-hoiise of Potrerillos in
the presence of  the llend-lrl.ui.     Well.
there was  the head-man; let the  lady
fulfil her pact of the contract and pay
him, and let him depart
In vain    did    Monsieur St.   Laurent

his self interest was, for u won

drew his copy of our contract from his
pocket, und tlourished it before Monsieur St. Laurent.
For the benefit of those who have not
made niule-journeys, 1 subjoin a copy
of this contract, which may prove useful to intending mountain travellers.
No one should travel far without being
provided with a form of this kind; as

each one of three mules, and eleven
pesos for myself as muleteer and confidential man of the said lady—the

ulso a woman of advanced education.
Our conversation soon verged round to
the gentleman in whom I was so much
interested. "Do you know that he is
expected here to-day!   she inquired.
"No," I replied; unless he has come
to meet me, in answer to a telegram 1
sent liini from Comayagua."
"I do not think that is likely; as ire
hear that he is on the way to Comayagua. He stays at a house in this
town when he passes through, and if
he arrives to-day, 1 shall know of it,
and will let you know. If helloes not
appear, it is possible that you may meet
him on the road to-morrow."
"Very strange, is it not, that he
should he leaving San Pedro just as I
enter it/'
Madame smiled, and looked at her
husband, and then said -"There has
been a great change in the colony during the last b » months: several of the
colonists hate returned home] others
have gone to Guatemala; very few re-j
main there now."
"Are you sure   of this,  Madame?" 1
Quite sure, fnr many  families   |w-s
through here, and they   speak more or
fi ly; it nems they have been de-
Delved in many ways They com-
, IiiiiH'd solely of one pei*son;and the
only fault they iiml with tlie Govern
ment is, that it has allowed itself to be
hood-winked by this man, and is SO
slow in i-edp'ssing their srongs,"
What are these particular wrongs!"
"It is said that  ttlmn he chartered

their money to him. ami that they can
sot girt a settlement. Tin n tban is a
notion abroad tbat boil no priest, bnt
a former Protestant minister, who
i-iiini' ben »ith questionable reoomnen-
dations. However, then is no doubt
aliout his suspension, as another priest
is appointed to his cure. I am ■.'bul of
this for your sake, for the new priest
is a quiet and earnest man,''
1 was told at   Comayagua  that the
person in question does not   recognise
his sentence of suspension." I answered.
"That is absurd." replied   Madame
"for the church is locked    up. and the
alcalde will only give up the key to the
newly appointed priest.    It is said that
his predecessor will never be reinstated.
Indeed, how  can it be  otherwise?    It
s a great pity, for no one entered upon
an undertaking   with   finer prospects.
The government was liberal, the Pres-1
byterian   alcalde   and  the   Protestant
consul at Puerto  Cortez,   both helped
and were  anxious to receive   the   colonists."
'And these," intervened Monsieur
St. Laurent, "were mostly of a respec
table class of Irish small farmers. They
brought a little money, and I think
with a different leader they would have
done well. Land has been given whereon to build a school, but the school is
not even begun."
'What could induce him to write
and engage me to come and superintend this school?" I inquired.
Madame laughed. "I cannot say,"
she said at length: "but I daresay you
will get that explained at San Pedro
Now, if you will go and rest, we will
see what we can do in getting you
mules. 1 know of one which you can
ride, and that is the principal part of
the business."
A room like a small barn was as
signed to me, and Madame had sent
in a bath, water, and towels; and
Eduardo, having looked to my comforts, asked leave to go with Monsieur
to St. Laurent's mozo to look after a
mule for himself and a baggage-

1850,000 have been subscribed in Victoria, to build n theutro. Beds are
scarce in the Royal Hospital here, and
the accommodation for patients very
poor indeed. But vanity must have

hospital on her way to lay the foundation stone of a play house. But, indeed, "our" civilization is a common
sham, uneducated and seltish.
On Monday morning a dense fog overhung the city of Victoria and the
harbor. It was as thick as tho fog
that surrounds ideas in the leading articles published in the Victoria papers.
You could not see through it; there
was nothing in it, but it did not puzzle
anyone, and therefore it did not injure
any man's mind. Trying to find something in the newspaper fog is, really
and truly, very like looking for the nee
die in the straw.
The Victoria "Times" says : "Many
of our representatives at Ottawa have
been observed in a beastly state of intoxication around the corridors and an

them to be honorable men; but is it
possible that we send men four thousand miles to represent beasts ? The
"Times" should publish the names.
On Monday the Town Council of
Victoria visited the water works at
Elk Lake. The Mayor said he was
proud of the Lake, and that it was a
monument to the energy and enterprise
of Victoria citizens. God made the
lake, and the "Standard" says, "it contains Hooting islands of vegetable matter." But that statement is corrected
by the Mayor, who says, "the water
nupply is pure." The report of the
visit to the waterworks is a tine kettle
of fish, without a head or a tail.
The Confederation of the Empire

swell, nor a vory ignorant man. In
fact, "my lord" must be—a gentleman.
Therefore, we say, it is time for the aspirants to begin to practise the art. of doing as you would be done by. The finest kind of gentleman is he whose education commenced in the cradle, It is
very hard to train an old man or an old

In London, on the 18th inst., Henry
M. Stanley, the African explorer, delivered a lecture in the Cannon Street
Hotel, on the Congo country, its history, development, and commercial
prospects. The soil is inexhaustible, and
if we can believe ihe evidence given by
Mr. Stanley, a home in the dark continent, where nature is lavish of her
gifts, would bo a great improvement on
mud cabin homes in Connemarra or
Wales. Ten acres on the banks of the
Congo, would yield more breadstuff's
than fifty acres of the best land in
Yorkshire. Indeed, the Congo country
may become the paradise of dudes. Ten
days' work in the year, by the river,
would supply each dude with abundance of food, and he could ogle the ladies and look fashionable in pants made
of leaves sewed with grass.

Tin-  three Eroparon of Germany,
Austria,   mid   liussiu, hnve  had   their
little run to Sl.i'rnevie, and have returned to their home*. - Thev have
done a great deal of embracing and
kissing, which it quite nice and affecting. They remind us of three children
taken out ly their nurses Bismarck,
Kaliinky and Drgiers; they played
themselves while their nurses were
hatching mischief. They did snine soldiering, in thr' great delight of the mob ;
they dirl soaie hunting, carefully got up
for them, and they did u good deal of
eating and drinking, which is equivalent to smoking the pipe of peace. The
part played by the Emperors was like
the by-play of the conjurors, who amuse
the attention of their audience while the
preparations are going on for tho new
trick. The real play was being performed by tho three Prime Ministers,
who were closeted together while the
Kaisers were amusing themselves and
the multitude. What the Ministers
were doing can only be surmised ; they
had each a very difficult game to play,
because each guessed whut the others
wanted, and it required all their keen
diplomacy to defend their game while
seeking under various devices to secure
a favorable move. Of course, the demands and possible concessions that
each was permitted to make, were carefully studied before they met, and although much discussion would take
place with a view to draw out opinions
on matters to be subsequently discussed
through their respective ambassadors,
only certain points would be definitely
settled. The repression of Nihilism,
Socialism, and Anarchism would be discussed with freedom, because they are
all agreed on that point, and certain
agreements would be effected in order
to secure the more effectual submission
of their respective shares of the Polish
kingdom. But we doubt whether anything definite was arranged in regard to
Turkey. The slow bnt sure advances
of Austria, in the Balkans, which is
creating an impassable barrier between
Russia and Constantinople, must have
been such a dangerous theme that they
would by tacit agreement avoid it.
Tbey might agree, however, to allow
Austria to absorb a piece of Albania,
in order to give her more security on
the frontiers of Bosnia and the Herzi-
govina; they might have come to an
understanding to permit Germany to
swallow up Holland in certain eventualities, and, of course, always in the
cause of peace and order, they may
have consented to allow Russia to take
over Persia. They may have agreed, in
merely exercising the virtuous desire to
benefit these respective countries, to
light together, if required, in defending
naelt other in their right to lake under
fclit.il- protecting wings, the countries
referred to. They would also agree to
hold themselves perfectly aloof in case
of any misunderstanding between
France and England in respect to Chi
tm. Tliey would absolutely laugh
»hen they spoke about these two powers getting into a muss, and they, meanwhile, pursuing their own little games
undisturbed, whilst they gave non-com-
mittal answers to England nnd France
when these powers complained of oue
another's interference with their respective real or imaginary interests.
The three imperial ministers, strong in
their union, would be able to treat the
representatives of England and France
with perfect contempt, always doing
their best to embroil these two powers
as being the only ones that coukl raise
a question about their own little game.
Nay, on the strength of the Kaiser-
bund Russia can impudently evade any
restriction of Frontier about Afghanistan, and may take possession of Herat
iu order to prevent any disturbance of
her position at Merv and Sarakhs, and
she may require to take the whole of
Afghanistan to protect Herat; if England continues to have a Radical government, the chances are that this will
be done. There can be no doubt that
the Kaiserbund is a menace to the rest
of Europe, and if the three Emperors
were sincere, and the three Empires
oould act in unison, they could dictate
any terms they liked. But fortunately
that cannot be ; Bismarck's determination to incorporate the whole of German
Austria in the German empire, and to

The extraordinary rumor about tht
Hustings Mill Lette, appears to us such
a gross outrage upon the people of this
Province, that wedoabt if even honest
John wonld risk such a step. It is said
that not only has the extrusion of tin-
lease been granted, but that a member
of the ring that bought the mill, has
gone to Canada to try and sell it.
Many of our readers may not be aware
that the Coal Harbour speculators purchased the Hastings Mill property with
all its privileges, in respect to lease of
timber lands, for a certain sum. A
portion of this sum was paid when the
deed of transfer was signed; the remainder was to be paid, if we mistake
not, in monthly instolnients. Tho speculation was based merely upon tho immediate value of the land, consequent
upon the expected boom at Harbor;
the lands near that place were to be
cut up into lots, and were supposed to
be sure to produce twice as much as the
sum required to be paid for the mill
property. The indefatigable efforts of
the Coal Harbor schemers were not
productive of the results anticipated,
and a dismal prospect of heavy loss and
possible collapse for some of them, stared
them in the face. Timber lands were
secured, and if the above rumor is correct, an extension of the Hastings Mill
timber lease has been promised by the
Government. On the strength of this,
one of the Coal Harbor victims has
been dispatched to offer the property in
Canada, with the hope of finding a pur
chaser. It may be necessary to inform
some of our readers that the renewal
of the lease, means the granting to someone, the right to cut timber on the
most valuable timber lands in the Province, for ONE CENT PER ACHE PER ANNUM. It must be remembered that this
lense was granted to the Hastings Mill
Company when our timber lands were
supposed to be valueless, and when any
terms less than an actual gift, were accepted in order to induce a company to
employ men iu the country, when we
had no industries whatever. The times
have completely chr.nged, and to grant
a renewal of the lease would be simple
public robbery, and that of the most
impudent kind. We should be simply
providing a premium at the public expense, for the silliest wild-cat speculation that we have ever seen in this Province, not excepting the Leathers Stone
speculation. We do not think tho Local Government would dare to grant
the renewal, even though endorsed by
their servile majority.
From tb. Oir.rrll.il,
We ask this qu ration, although we
know of several for whom we can vouch
because the time is fast approaching
when the people's representatives must
ask our present rulers to step down and
out. Tho conduct of the present Government has born so glaring iu its abuse
of thn power conferred upon them, and
the complete vjid in respoct to governing capability, that the people from one
end of the Province to the other, have
determined to get rid of them. We
don't stop to consider why our mainland members made themselves parti-
ceps crimim's in the whole of their maladministration ; these members, intrusted with the interests of their constituents, vilely betrayed them, with a
few honorable exceptions, and it now
rests with them to do something to redeem themselves—even at the eleventh
hour-- from the universal execration
that will be heaped on them if they
continue to support the present Government. We know there are two or three
who have the best reason for knowing
that they will never bo again returned
to any House of Assembly in this Province, and who, porhaps, will think it
looks brave to continue to support a
universally unpopular Government.
But in this -they are greatly mistaken.
The gross conduct of the present ministry is so shamefully patent, and tbis
knowledge has been brought home to
the people more particularly since the
close of Jost session, that the most atrocious motives will be attributed to the
members who vote for them, and they
will be pointed at hereafter. There ia
no possible shelter for them. They may
have been deceived during the heat of
the session; they were led to believe
that the greatest general benefits would
flow from what haa produced nothing
liut shame nnd disaster. Some palliation nr ex, use rj,uy In- found fnr I le ir

outside the House desire their iliMiih

to understand tht pisi'ion, it will lie
lenr that the bat) way to get out of
iln i'gly position thtyHOW occupy, will
bt, to make iheir opposition us paint
ble as possible, and tiie more strongly
il is narked tht better. It mny appear slrungc tn most people when we
snv thai the (I'lVerillni'llt expects to be
kicked out. Does anyone suppose for a
moment that they would give uwuy the
beat parti of our small strip of timber
lands to aliens, when we are absolutely
counting on the sale of our timber to
the people ofthe Northwest, whenever
tho railway is opened for through traffic ? Does anyone suppose that they
care anything for public opinion, knowing their sentence is passed, when they
would grant an extension of a lease
granted nearly twenty yearn ago?
Could anyone hope for their continuance in power, in view of the complete
failure of the Settlement bill ? Can
anyone, remembering the Kootenay
bill, the Wright Road bill, the Port
Simpson Grab, the Burrard Inlet Reserve attempted robbery, wish them to
remain in power a single day. Not
only are the charges against them of
the most serious character, and the
most ordinary duties of legislation
grossly neglected, but the miserably
false positions in which they place
themselves, by allowing themselves to
be led by a shallow pated man liko
honest John, produces a feeling of
the most utter contempt in the minds
of all thinking men. Look, for instance, at the paltry shifts they are
forced to, in the effort to obtain even
a email amount of money, by selling
city lots in Victoria and this city !
Our City Council appealed to them for
one or two of the lots for public purposes, but honest John flatly refused to
give the lots, on the plea that if he gave
us any he would be compelled to give
some to the Victorians ; and moreover,
they (the Government) had not the
power to give them.* The public (of
our city) were hardly informed of the refusal and its pretended causes, when
we learn that the Government have
offered to present the citizens of Victoria with nine of the most valuable
lots in the city, on certain conditions,
which the Government has no right to
exact. Such little, mean, miserable
tricks, would condemn even a Government composed of men of real ability,
but the puerile creatures who now pretend to govern, cannot be permitted to
remain a day longer in positions for
which they are wholly unfit, and in
which their presence reflects disgrace on
the people of this Province. Let them
be cast out without a moment's delay.
* Since the foregoing article was in type,
the Government, from four of rousing our
citizens to action, whicli might prevent the
salo of any of the reserve, have presented
four lots to the city.

The Hocse-wakmimi — The house-warming party at Mr. Ileo. T'hompson's new residence, on Monday evening of this week, was
a most successful affair. Ample preparations
had been mode for entertaining a large party
and it wot well tbat it waa to, fr the attendance was larger than any social ever held
at I'ort Moody. About eleven o'clock the
New Westminster cornet band arrived, and
after playing several popular airs on the
lawn, went inside amlplayed for the dancing.
A "string band" composed of Harry Reaal's
tin fife, Sam Connor's violin, Charley
Simpson's quitar aud an euphonium, also
furnished pome good music at intervals.
Supper was served at a long table, in one of
the unoccupied rooms, anrl if tho table
didn't ''groan with nil tho luxuries of the
season," it was because it waa ashamed to
be groaning amidst such a jolly company.
Lemonade for the ladies anrl nriti-prohibition
beverages for the sterner sex were also provided iu abundance, and contributed tlieir
sharc to the evening's enjoyment. Dancing
was kept up with vigor till a late hour, and
to say that all enjoyed themselves thoroughly
is but expressing it mildly, T. 3 vaunted
merrincsa of a marriage bell is funereal when
compared with the jolly time of Monday
night at Thompsons house-warming.
CnARHF.ii wiih Theft.—Peter Peterson,
a Swede, who has been working with the
bridge gang at Pitt River, was arrested on
Tuesday evening hy Constable Sharpe,
charged with stealing 1100,00 from Charley
Otterson. a fellow workman, on the morning
of Wednesday, the 17th instant, lie was
brought up for trial before Squire Butchart
on Wednesday morning last, ami after four
witnesses had given their evidence he was
discharged. It seems that on the morning
of the robbery, prisoner had occasion to go
to camp for some tools, and as he occupied
a tent in common with three others, among
whom was the man who lost the money, he
was suspected of having taken it. The
cook, a Chinaman, testified that he had seen
the prisoner enter tilt tent, and that was the
only piece of evidence against bim. 'i'he
prisoner, a tnnnly looking fellow di-eised in
a fine suit of black, told bis story in a
straightforward manner, and uncounted fully
for the money found on his person when ar
retted. He wa. acriuitted, ami the rest of
the gani.-. most of whom were Swedes, returned to their work, rrrrrl we hope the ln.s
of 81011,00, will tench Mr. Otterson to leave
Ids iiiuiury iu some more secure place than in
an open tent, especially if there are any
Chinamen in the neighborhood.
The Way it HaVPMrxrS.—We received a
letter this week from the publisher of the
West Shore, complniiiing that we hurl done
him an injustice by stating that he bud
collected money lor ndvertisinir, and had
failed tn insert the "ads." Well, when the
B. C. number of his paper reached us we
looked in vain for the Caledonia Hotel ndvt.
tor the insertion o( winch   Mr.   Kelly   hird
paid |1A,00,  and   whioh  Mr,   Hoott, the
manager Of tbe bruise, was also unable to
Iind. in tht number whieh We raorlvtd, the
adit, did ont  appear, mid   it  was   only by
c paring it witn o'her numbers,  after   ni
eeiving Mr. Sauiili'l's letter, that we discovered that the binder hud omitted four
panes of advertisements from si'Verai of tlte
numbers whioh reached Pml Moody (our
Own annul:,' the rest, I and we were thun lid
i,.io making th** incorrect Itattmant above
referred t". for the unwitting injustice
dons Mr Sainuel we beg to apologise, but
tiki'the lil.uii'y of replying   to .nine of the
star enis contained in his letter,   lb' says:
"W'tii-n I finally visited your place in perton
I found cliaoi reigning supreme; every business man I culled nil told me the place wsl
virtually dead, never to be rt-turrected; that
they were only waiting for another two
weeks, and when everything would bu nn
the move for Coal Harbor. Of course, 1
didn't care about illustrating a gravi'vanl,
so I immediately returned to New Westminster mu] telegraphed to Portland to throw
out picture of Port Moody," Just sot Now
wo have heen at the pains to interview the
business men nf this city, and they all emphatically deny eier having mado any such
statement to Mr. Samuel or any of hie ogents;
on the contrary, those of them who were
seen by Mr. Samuel told him they were and
had always been sanguine of the future of
Port Moody, but were not prepared to waste
any money in advertising in a paper with a
limited circulation in the district from
whence their trade was derived. Mr.
Samuel arrived in Port Moody on a Sunday
afternoon, in tho midst of a pouring rain,
just at the hour of divine service, nnd was
unable tn see hut very few of our business
men, most of whom ore opposed to the
Jewish custom of doing business on Sunday.
To those he did see, ho exhibited pictures of
the Telephone Office, Caledonia Hotel, Elgiu
House, Odin's building and a view of the
harbor and town site, all of which he stated
would he published in the September number of the WeM Shore, together with a descriptive article on Port Moody. In consideration of these statements, Mr. Kelly
gave him an advt, although there was no
conrlition in reference to the insertion of the
pictures, attached to the contract; consequently by their non-insertion there was no
breach of faith— hut it was crawling through
a mighty small hole for the sake of $15,00.

The Afoiiax Fkostieb Commission.—
Tbe route snd date for the departure of the
Afghan Frontier Commission aro still uncertain. Captain Maitland, the intelligence
officer, has gone to Quetta, it is believed,
with the intention of arranging for a march
»io Muskhi ami the Desert route to the
Helmund, in case the Ameer refuses to agree
to the adoption of the march by way of
Candahar and Giriskh. It is possible also
thst neither of these nrntes may betaken.
and that the Commission may proceed by
sea to Persia, or even to Constantinople. At
present, bow-ever, it would oppear that the
Desert route will must probably lie selected.
It is sairl to present no great difficulties,
having been partially explored by Sir Robert
Saudeman last winter. Ibrahim Khan, As
sistaut Superintendent of Police at Pesh.wur
has been sent on a special mission to Cabal
It is supposed that the object is again to
press the Ameer to consent to the adoption
of the Cindahar route. Dr. Sully, who was
originally appointed medical officer of the
Commission, is unable to go. His place
will therefore be taken by Dr. Aitchison,
who to his other qualifications adds that
of being a skilled naturalist. It is now
stated that the escort will consist of 400

Tire  reason officially   stared   for Lord
Ripon's resignation is the d. lieate condition
uf his health, but it is weil known that
various other causes combined to bring
about his wish for retirement. It is true
that he is still a Bufierer from epileptic tits,
one uf whil h nearly terminated his life last
April, and Ins health has been undermined
fur- mouths by the wan anient of constant
disputes with subordinate Indian officials.
Hut the discontent under his rule in India,
which has shown itself more thau once by
open insults, and. ninre recently, the distrust in him hy English politicians,calised by
his proposal tn di-establisb the Church ol

I his retirement, apart from his ill health.
' Speculations as to his probable successor

Those who are disprmd to criticise the appointment uf laird Diiiierin say that, by putting him in a purely administrative position,
the Government will luse tho benefit of the
splendid diplomatic talents which he has displayed at \ ienna, St. Petersburg, and Constantinople. It is nnt denied, however,
that he has also shown himself possessed of
great executive ability as Undersecretary for
India aud aa Governor-General of Canada. It
is said that the new Viceroy proposes to infuse unwonted energy into the Government
of Indis, and will seek to reduce or abolish
the armies of the tributory States, which he

In a lecture before the Society of Arts,
London, Prof. Williams said that twenty
pounds of cheese contained as much
nutritious material as a sheep of sixty pounds
and would give the same value iu practical
nutriment if it could be ns easily digested.
The lecturer then demonstrated that the
cause of iadigestihility in cheese was the
loss of ita potassium salts in the process
of manufacture. Another savant present
decided to experiment as to the feasibility
of restoring the lost salts and making the
article perfectly digestible. He it! said to
have succeeded so well that the matter will
soon be tried on a large scale. The amount
of the bicarbonate of potash restored is li
ounces to 1 pound of cheese. The two are
simply melted together over a slow fire,
with a small quantity of milk.
