But no shadow of •t,-ii,j»t-r' or res rve

"This speech waa irritting on two
,-epa,ate grounds. It implied that people were talking freely of my attacn
ment, which, until I had formally acknowledged it, 1 reaented ns an impertinence, and it implied lhat, from
personal observation, Agalma doubled

grew more and more doubtful of the
xinence in Ottilie's mind of any fee -
ing stronger than f iendship for me,
and as this doubt strengthened, there
arose the flattering suspicion that I was
becoming an object of gieater interest
to Agalma, who had quite changed her
tonetowardsuie, and hud bee nie aeriotlfl
in her speech and manner. Weeks
passed. Olli ie had lullen from Dei
pedestal, and ii.ol taken her place among
agreeable acquaintances. One day I
suddenly learned tbat Ottilie was engaged to her couaiu.
"Vou will not wonder that \galun,
who befoul this had exercised great
fascination over tne, now doubly became
an object of the molt tender interest. 1
fell madly in love. Hitherto I had
never known that passion. Hy feeling
for Ottilie I saw was but tbe inarticulate stammerings of the miulity voice
which now sounded thrcugh the depth!
nl my nature. The plira e, madly in
love, is no ex iggerationj madness alon
knows such 1 fever of the brain, such a
tumult of the heart It wu* not tha
leasoh wsb overpowered: on the contrary, reason was intensely active, bit
active with that logic of flames which
lights upon the vision of maniacs.
'Although, of cours", my passion wsb
but too evident to erery one, I dreaded
its premature avowal, Irs! I should lose
her; and almost equally dreaded delay,
lest I should suffer from that also. Ai
length the avowal wis extorted from me
by jealousy of a brilliant Pole—Kor-
inski—who had recently appeared in
our circle, and was obviously casting m
in the shade by his superior advantages
of novelty, ot personal attraction, nun
of a romantic history. She accepted

happiest of mortals. The fever of the

"Tb* stress and agitation ot those

crumpled letter,   and   moti ned   tbit 1
shou d .pen it and read,    it ran thus:—
"I have thought much of «hat you

the happiness of both if our unforlunat-
engagement wrre set aside That you

which for s m» iuie we have lived to
gether, has completely killed »h<l love

is ceiiniiily mine. I,-1 us try to think
kindly of each other and meet again as

"AlJALMA   LlKBENSTEIK."
When I had reHil this an 1 return-d
it to him, he said: "You see that this
wa- written on the day I was taken ill.
Whether she kuew thai I was then helpless I know not. At any rate, ahe never
sent to inquire afier me. Sbe went off
to Palis; Korinski followed her; and—as
I quickly learned on going once more
into socii-tv—tbey were married! Did
vou oyer, in the whole course of your
experience hear of such heartless conduct,"
Bouigonef asked this with a ferocity
which quite startled me. I did n t
answer him; f r, in truth, I cou d no'
see that Agiilma had been veiy much to
blame, even as be told lhe story, and
felt sure thai could I have heard her
version it woul have worn a verv different aspect. That she wns cold, and
disappoint 'd him, might be true enough,
but there was no crime' and I perfectly
uudersto al how tb, roughly odious he
must have ma le himself to her by bis
exactions and leproscbes. 1 understood this, peihapt all the better, because in the course of his narrative
Bourgonef had revealed to me aspect:
of his nature which were somewhat repulsive. Especially I was struck with
is morbid vanity, and his readiness to
impute low in- lives to others. This unpleasant vie* of his character—a char
scter in many respects s ■ adiuiruble for
its generosity arid refinement — wus
deepened as he went on, inateud of
awaiting my reply to his question.
'Fur a wrong so measureless, you
will naturally ask what measureless 1, -
venge I sought."
The idea had not occurred to in :
indeed I could see no wrong, and this
noli n of revenge was somewnat stalling in Such a ca.e.
"I debated it long," he continued
"I felt that since I was prevented from
arresting any of the evrl lo mys'lf, I
could ai least man errty plans for a
ad'quale disch rge of just retiibui n
on her. It reveals tbfc impotence re-
iilting from the tiniiniiels of mo lein
civilization, (bat white the possilii]j:i >
of «rong are infinite, the openings foi
vengeance are few and ouuteiupilbli
Only when a man is (brown upon le
necessities of this 'wild justice' does In
discover how difficult vengeance ren'l,
is. H,d Agalma been my ,-ife, I oould
have wreaked my wrath upon her, wiih
is-iirance that some of ihe torture she
indicted on ma was to fall on her

lie seemed   worki g   with an insane
passion;  so that I   regarded    him  wiih
isgust   mingled    with   some    doubts
as to what horrors be vvasabout torelat,-.
''My plan was chosen The only way
to reach her heart was to strike ber
through her hu-hsyid.' For eevera
hours daily I praciised with tbe pistol
Until—in spite of only having a left
hand—I acquired fatal skill. But this
was not enough. Firing at' a mark is
simple work. Firing at a man—especially one holding a pistol pointed at
you—is altogether different. I had too
often heard of 'crack shots' missing iheir
men, to rely ce- tidently on ray skill in
the shooting-gallery, it wtib n cess-ary
that myeyeant hand shoulJ be educated
10 familiarity with the real object. Part
of the cause why duellists nuss their
man is from the trepidation of fear. At
no moment of my life have I been afraid
and the chance of being shot by Korinski I counted at nothing. The other
cause is unfumiliarity with this mark.
This I secured myself against by getting a lay figure of Koilnski's heighl,
dressing it to resemble  him, placing a
this mark in lhe woods After a short
lime I could send a bullet through tbe
Ih .rax with ut akiug mole than a ha tt
glance at the figure.
'Thus prepared, I started for Paris.

CJIAWBIl vni. — A UOOJITJ VICTIM.
Bonrgonefi story hns been narrated
with sou,i- fuln's,. though in l.ss detail
than he told it, in order tlrni the reader
may understand its real bearing! on
my story. Without it, tin- iimtiies
who h Impelled tha str.mgr pertinacity
of my pursuit would have been unintelligible. I have said tnat 11 very dis-
agreeable impreation remained on my
mind respecting certain loceptl ot his
character, and 1 felt somewhat Mbamed
of my imperfect  sagacity in Inn ing up
to thi.s period   been entirely   blind to
those Upectl. The truth is, even
human being is a mystery, und remains
so to the last. We fancy we know a
character; we form a distinct conception
of it; for years that conception remains
unmodified, and suddenly the strain ot
some    emergency   or  the   incidental
stimulus of new eireiiinstaiiees reveals
jualities not limply unexpected, but
flatly contradictory of our previous con
ception. We judge of a man by the
angle he subtends to our eye only
thus can We judge of him; nnd ibis
angle depends 011 the relation hit
qualities and eiivuuistances bear toour
intir, sis and sympathies. Bourgonef
had charmed me intelleetually; morall-
I bad never oome closer to him than
in the sympathies of public questions
and abstract theories. H is story hud

Conversation we had two ,1 ,ys afterwards helped to strengthen them.
We bail gone on a visit to Bchwan-
thaler the sculptor, at his tiny littlt
castle of Schwuueck, a few miles from
Munich. The artist was out foe a
walk, but ni! were   invited   to come in
and await hie return, whieh would !"■
shortly; and meanwhile Bourgonef undertook to -how nn-over the castle, inter, I ing an a bit of modern Gothic, realizing on a diminutive scale a youth
ful dream of the sculptor's, When nur
survey was completed—and it did not
take long—we sat ut one of the windows and enjoyed a magrrifloent prospect, "ft is curious," sairl Bourgonef,
"to he shut up here in this imitation of
medieval masonry, where every detail
■peaks of the dead past, and ro think nf
' ir- events now- going on ut Paris which
must lind imitators all over Europe,
nnd which open to the mil d such vistas
of the future. What a grotesque
anachronism is this Gothic castle, built
in the same age as that   irliieh   sees a
reforming [rope!"
"Yes; but is not the reforming pope
himself an anaehronismf'
"Asa Catholic," here he smiled, in'
tiiuiiting that his orthodoxy was not
very stringent. "I cannot admit that
as a Protestant, you must admit   that
if there must be a pope, he must i
these days b*a reformer, or—give u
his temporal power.   Not that 1 look

Despond, and under the headship of tin
Church found e. new noil lasting re
public We want a Hil.lebianil, one
who will be to the nineteenth century
what Gregory was to the eleventh.'
"Do you believe in such a possibility!
Do ynu think the Roman pontiff can
ever again sway the destinies of
Europe?"
"I can hardly say I believe it; yet J
see the possibility of such an opening if
the right man were to arise. Put I
fear he will not arise; or if he should
the Conclave will stiff • him. Yet
there is but one alternative; either
Europe must once more join in a crusade with a pope at the head; or it
must hoist the red flag. There is no
other issue."
"Heaven preservo us from both!
And I think we shall be preserved fiom
the popo by the rottenness of the
Church; from the drapcau rougt by the
indignation and horror of all honest
men. You see how the Provisional
Government has resisted the insane attempt of the fanatics to make the red
Hag accepted as the   national banner?"
"Yes; and it is the one thing which
dashes my pleasure in the new revolution. It is the one act of weakness which the Government has ex
hibited, a concession which will be
fatal unless it be happily set aside by-
the energetic party of action."
"An act of weakness? say rather an
act of strength. A concession? say
rather the repudiation of anarchy, the
assertion of law and justice."
"Not a bit. It was a concession to
the fears of the timid and to the vanity
of the French people.   The tricolor is

1 hud   no idea you    were so bloodthirsty," isaid I, laughing at his   rah*
rheooe.
"I am not bloodthirsty at all; 1 am
only logical and consistent. There is
a mass of sophistry current in tbe world
wbioh sickens me. People talk of
liobespierre and St. Just, two of the
most virtuous men that ever lived—and
of Dominic and Torojucmada, two of
the most single-minded--as if they were
cruel anrl blnudthirsty, whereas they
were unly convinced.'
"It is from love cf paradox that you
defend these tiger
"Tigers, again—how those beasts are
calumniated!" H_	
lie said this with a seriou'-ness which
was irresistibly comic,     I shouted with
laughter; but be continued, gravely
Vou  think t am   joking.     But let
rr-k mu why ynu consider the tiger
more bloodthirsty, than yourself?    He
prings upon   his food - you buy yours
from the   butcher.    He   cannot    live
without   animal   fond: it   is   u primal
necessity, and  he obeys the ordained
instinct. You can live 011 vegetables;
Vet yoa slaughter beasts of the field anil
birds of the e.ir (or iAy them when
aughtered), r-nd consider yourself a
model of virtue, The tiger only kills
his food nr his enemies; ynu nut only
kill both, hut you kill one utiiinul to
make gravy frr another! The tiger is
less bloodthirsty than the Christian!'
I don't know how much of that
tirade is meant to be leriovis; but to
waive the question of the tiger1! morality, rlo you really—I will not say
sympathise, but justify Robespierre,
pominio, St. dust, and the rest of the
fanatics who have wailed to their ends
through blood?"
•'He who wills the end, wills the
means."
"A devil's maxim."
"Hut a truth. What the foolish
world shrinks at as bloodthii-stiii.-ssand
cruelty is very often mere force and
constancy of intellect. It is not that
fanatics thirst for blood -far from it.
- but they thirst for the triumph of
their cause. Whatever obstacles lies
011 iheir path must l,c removed; if a
torrent of blood is the onlv thing that
will swei p il away the torrent must
sweep.' H	
"And sweep with it a 1 the sentiments
of pity, mercy, charity, love?"
"No: these senfimenta may give a
sriilin'ss to tin1 1 enssity: they make the
deed of sacrifice, but they cannot pre
vent tbe sou! from seeing the aim to
which it tends."
'This is detestable doctrine? It is
the sophism which has destroyed
families, devested cities, and retarded
the moral progress of the world more
tlnrr anything else,   No single   act of
injustice is ever dune nn this earth but

"You are wrong. The great drag

The arrival of Si hwantliuler was
timely, for my indignation was rising
The sculptor roceued us with great
cordiality, aud in tie pleasure of the
subsequent hour, 1 got over to some
extent the irritation Bonrgonefi talk
hail excited r^i^^^^^~
The next day I left Munich for the
Tyrol. My parting with Hourgonef
was many degrees less friendly thai) it
would have been a week before. 1 had
no wish to see him again, and therefore gave him no address or invitation
in case be should come to England. As
I rolled away in the Malleposte, my
busy thoughts reviewed all the details
of our acquaintance; and the farther I
was carried from his presence, the more
obtrusive became -lie suspicions which
connected him with the murder of
Lieschen Lehfeldt. How, or upon what
motive, was indeed an utter mystery.
He had not mentioned the name of
Lehfeldt. He had never mentioned
having before been at Nuremberg. At
Heidelberg the tragedy occurred—or
was Heidelberg only amask. Itoccurn d
to me that he at lirst ascertained that I
had never been at Heidelberg before he
placed the scene of his story there.
Thoughts such as these tormented
ine. Imagine, then, the horror with
which I heard, soon after my arrival
at Salzburg, that a murder had been
committed at Grossheslohe — one of
the pretty envirous of Munich much
resortaxl to bv holiday folk—corresponding in all essental features with the
murder at Nuremberg! In both cases
the victim was young and pretty. In
both cases she was found quietly lying
on the ground, stabbed to the heart,
without any other traces of violence.
In both eases she was a lietrothed bride
and the motive of the unknown
in a mystery.

Tlie people of Manitoba talked a good
deal of nonsense ami threatened to annex themselves to the United .States.

exodus of the discontented have gone
over to Dakota and Montana, ami Mm.

their Muster and tall talk, the Dniiiin
ion Government refused to move nn

way Co. have declared that tliey will
hot build any branch line in Manitoba.
The people of that Province are surprised since they discovered that it is
■ ■osier to annex ten ini'lions of men
than ten inches of British soil.
A legal murder was committed at
Victoria on Saturday last. English
law soys the man that is not guilty of
murder shall not bo hanged. A jury
convicted Lemon and the verdict was
"guilty of murder." The Chief Justice
believed tho jury erred, and that the
verdict should be manslaughter. He
stated this fact in a letter to the minister of Justice who refused to interfere and the result was—a legal murder!

In Victoria the people are preparing to elect school trustees. The system of electing judges is disgraceful;
but ignorance in selecting a judge is not
more out of place than ignorance selecting a school trustee. A trustee
ought to be a Christian, and he should
lie a man lit to spell words of two syllables. Indeed, every candidate for the
office should be examined in public. It
will not pay to have Mormons, Spiritualists or blockheads elected to be
guardians of the public schools
The Indians have erected a Mission
Church at Burrard Inlet. It cost

Five thousand of the best Catholics in

Mitchell, the grave-digger in Victoria, was accused of taking (lowers
from the graves, and dismissed by the
Mayor and town council at their lost
meeting. Councillor McKilligan proposed to advertise for a man of mild
temperament. It was a wise suggestion. A man that lives amongst the
dead ought to be calm and cool. An
ill-tempered fellow in such a place is
out of place.

On Wednesday, a Mr. Bott, in a letter to the "Colonist," announced that
himself and five other persons had
found good locations on the Island,
an,d recommends Mr. Halfpenny as a

a leading article says : "The letter of
Mr. Bott pictures a very satisfactory

In Western Virginia last week, thtee
lovely young ladies intended to play "an
innocent practical joke" on a young
clerk.     They seasoned a pie with white
■ powder, which they supposed to be ep-
som salts, and gave it to the young man
at a pic-nic. He narrowly escaped
death, as the white powder happened to
be arsenic. The next day he met one
of the " adies" on the street and whipped
her ; that night her brothers tarred and
feathered the clerk, and the next night
one of the brothers was shot dead on
the street. The town is divided into
iwo factions, and several lives may be
lost, because three lovely young ladies
happened to be very ignorant and very
fond of the low practical joke.

J. J. O'Kelly, ihe London "Daily

declares that no man shall be richer
than another, and that every man shall
have something." The doctrine of the
prophet would not be unpopular with a

[Froa, the Mainland GoanlraB.J
Although Victorians, as a rule, have
been   anything   but   friendly   to the
Mainland,   and   have,  through   their
journals, such as the "Colonist," created strong feelings of antagonism in the
breasts of many mainland,'rs, we do not
approach this  subject with uny desin
to injure the city which forms tliejins
ent capital of the Provin.,-;   our pres
..'nt intention is simply  to  regard the
inevitable, and   to    prepare    people's
minds for an early change.     The gnat
pl,u hitherto for  tin-  rcta-ution of tin-
capital at  Vii.toritt, has  b-eii  the   assemblage   of   the   largest   number nf
white people, and the supposed convenience to the majority, of   the   seat   of
Government.    Another and still more
plausible plea was the fact   that   communication with the outer world   wus
more direct and constant at Victoria
than it could be at any other point in
the Province, and this   could   not be
questioned. The position, however, will
soon be reversed.    The  population at
Port Moody will soon be double that of
the present capital, and communication
will be more secure at that place than
at Victoria.    We can remember when,
during   one   winter, owing to stormy
weather,   all   communication  between
Victoria and   the   mainland was absolutely cut off for ton days.      If such a
contingency is remote it is still to be
considered, and avoided, but with important interests, a   large   population,
and the naval depots at Port Moody,
thn   existence of  tho capital   on  the
Island would not for a moment be toi
crated.    Tho difficulty of travel from
the interior was also  a reason   (of re
tabling the capital where it is.     It was
the center of   commerce, and   traders
from the interior always calculated on
spending a mouth when they  came to
tho   seaboard,   uniting  business   and
pleasure.     The  center   of   commerce
will in the future be  at Port  Moody,
where all the large  eastern establishments will have  their warehouses, so
that traders from the  interior will be
spared   the   experience,    not   always
pleasant, of crossing the Gulf of Geor
gia; they will be able to accomplish all
their   business,   have a  day or two's
relaxation, and return to  their   homes
in a week.     This    will   also  involve
the removal of the Supreme Court and
the other public institutions.  Whether
tho capital will be permanently located
at Port Moody, or moved further inland, is a moot question, from reasons
which will be apparent further on.
The latest news from the Rocky Mountains is to tho effect that gold antl
silver in paying quantities have been
discovered iua great number of places
iu and near the Rockies, to say nothing of our own Golcondu—the Selkirk Range, The population will not
only be enormously great in this, the
most extensive and richest mining
district ever discovered on this continent, but it will be permanent and
will extend from Calgary to ICam-
oops. The natural result would be a
demand that tin, capital bo so centrally placed that all important interests
may be equally served, and the importance of the trade at the mines
would be a chief factor in settling such
a question. The commerce at Port
Moody will be of the most extensive
character, and the aggregation of notabilities civil and military, will be very
large ; but the presence of the capita!
is not an essential matter for a seaport,
whereas the vicinity to the greatest
center of population as well as affording equal facilities to the members of
the legislature, is usually esteemed of
importance. The presence of the legislature implies the presence of the Su
preme Court, and that should always
be in the most central position, because
it is a serious hardship for litigants to
pay the expenses of witnesses brought
from long distances. If the capital
was at Kamloops or some other place
in the centre of the Province, all complaints on this score would disappear.
Touching climate and surroundings,
there could be no possible fault to find.
The country in the vicinity is magnificent and will soon be thickly populated.     The winters commence later and
THE EASTERN QUESTION.
end sooner than anywhere else in British Columbia.     Thus two important
productive classes of the population	
the farmers and miners — would have
the paternal supervision of the Government ; the commercial class at Port
Moody being very well ablo to take
care of itself. Thero would certainly
be none of the jealousy or ill feeling
evoked that existed so long in the eastern provinces. The claims of Victoria
will disappear with the altered circumstances of the Province, and no other
locality could adduce any claim paramount to the public convenience and
the general advahtage of the commonwealth.. The law of the fittest applies
! not only to persons but to localities'.
[From tb. stalolautt Quanllas.'l
The wily diplomacy of the Muscovite
is proverbial, and his recent proceedings in Turkistau is only an instance
of his well known cuiuuug. What his
future course may be in relation to
Constantinople, it is hard to say. Lord
Beaconsfield very adroitly raiser! a bar
to his progress iu that direetin,., by inducing Austria to take the Balkan
provinces under its prnteetinn, so that
to attempt any movement through
Bulgaria towards fttamlmnl, would bo
to come into cuiitact v.ilh the two
great German powers. But if we are
tnjuilg" from appearances, the Czar
does not conceive the bar insurmountable; he seems to think thut if he could
prevent England from interfering in
prnti'itiiig the "siek man," he would be
quite equol to the other two. In order
lo divert the atte-ition of England, he
has been threatening the frontiers of
India, because, although he adduces
many specious arguments for what he
has done in the annexation of Merv, he
Intends that England shall look upon
his approaches lo the Aflglmn frontier
as a menace. His great object is to fix
the British att'iitinn upon India, and
if possible, to cause so much anbunif-
ment and expenditure iri defensive
works that John Bull will be fain to
accept peace and security on his Indian
frontier as an excuse for allowing the
Runsiuns to do what they can in Turkey. It was hoped that the annexation
of Merv would have done all thut was
requisite, but John is not so easily
hoodwinked us the Russians imagine;
he has only put another bolt on the
door by proclaiming a protectorate
over Beloochistan. Perhnfs this should
have been done long ago; it formed part
of the scientific frontier proposed by
Lord Beaconsfield; but the fact that
that nobleman had adopted the idea,
was sufficient to induce Mr. Gladstone
to oppose it until he is now forced to
accept the very policy which he formerly so vehemently denounced. Hy the
construction of the railway to Quetta
and the recent arrangement with the
chiefs in that valuable frontier province, Sir R. Sandeman, has removed any anxiety as to future Russian
movements from Merv. But a rumor
has recently had currency that Persia
had ceded the fortress of Sarakhs to
Russia, and this unquestionably and
very properly aroused attention. The
city und fortress of Sarakhs is the most
important, so far as Persia and Aff-
ghaiiistiui are concerned, on the entire
frontier. There is only one gnp in the
dividing range  of mountains between
Persia, and Afghanistan, through which
an invading army could pass into India
with safety und certainty of supplies,
and that is by way of Sarakhs. But
then it commands and forms the only
protection to the very heart of Persia,
and it was thought that the Shah would
as soon think of parting with his throne
as the fortress of Sarakhs. Indeed, to
cede this stronghold to a powerful
nation like Russia, would be equivalent
to abdicating, because the owner of
Sarakhs could dictate to his own terms.
It cannot be wondered at that the
"Times" sliould express itself in very
indignant terms, and urge that explanations should be demanded from Persia.
The report of the cession of Sarakhs
has been denied. It would not be surprising if Russia hail caused the report
to be circulated in order to see what
effect it would have in England, as she
has such powerful influence at Teheran
that it is very probable she might even
secure Sarakhs if she thought it prudent to take it just now. It is fortunate, however, that the attention of the
British Government has been called to
such a possibility so that proper prr-
eautions may be taken. We havo very
grave doubts of Russia having any do
signs upon India, because it is thero
that England is strongest; and notwithstanding that Russia is making
soldiers of her new subjects nt Merv
and enrolling all tho Turkesr an tribes
under her banners, she would not be
able to sustain for long, a great conflict
with England, who could place millions
of Indian soldiers in the field to oppose
her. But she might, and she will, foment
rebellion and revolt in Afghanistan, in
order to cause annoyance and expense to
England. In this she miscalculates her
strength. If it is thought necessary
by England to effect reprisals in the
same way, she has only to send officers
and war material to Poland, to Finland,
to the Baltic, to the Caucasus, and
Russia would soon draw in her horns.
The nonsense adduced by some writers
that the Russian Treasury is depleted
and that she is unable to undertake
an expensive war, is the reverse of the
fact. The Russian Government has
plenty of money and is in a better position to go to war, so far as finances
are concerned, than many supposed
wealthy nations of Europe. She has
men, material, and money in plenty,
but she is in the unhappy position of
all bullies—she is feared' and hated.
The first warlike movement on her
part would evoke a coalition of the
great powers, and despite her full
purse, enormous armies artd immense
supplies of wafmaterial, she would be
beaten, and possibly the next defeat
will result in the cutting off of some of
her best nnd richest provinces.

the ground of a question to be addressed to
.Ministers in the House of Gammons to-morrow by Mr. llourk**. Wc do not venture to
ani.icip.ite tbi answer of tin* Foreign Office,
but we may «ay that we have no more reason to doubt thu accuracy ot this information
than ofth.it in which wu made known the
int'iitinii of the Turkoman chief* of Merv
to place themselves under Russian protection
some time before thu uflkial ackuhwlcdge-
ment of the fact. There is, we regret to
say, no improbability in a proceeding which
is consistent with the pruviotii history of
Russian conquests and acquisitions in Central As'a. We have neither thu right nor
the'le.sirc to pass a Bevero moral cfeimure
upon Russia for a course of imperial development which closely corresponds with the
creation of the Englitdi Empire in India.
We do not even think it worth while to re-
feat and to dwell u>poii the charge which
,ord Granville plaintively put forward iu
the debate in the House of Lords on March
10th last, and with whieh it may be supposed
the Foreign Oliice has attempted to quicken
the consciences of Russian statesmen. It
was, as Lord Granville pointed out, a legitimate ground for complaint that while friendly
communications were going dli between the
two countries " thu annexation of Merv
sliould be suddenly found to be a fait ac-
cowffH. Rut, after all, tho same thing
hud happened more than once before, Hub
ia had discovered as in the case of Kluva
that England was nut disposal to bold her
to the strict letter of her promises in view
of changing circumstances, and was ready
to look dispassionately ut. tho situation as
altered l>y every new Ituu5«an movement as
without prejudice. In this maimer in fact
both the Government and thecoui.try have
viewed the absorption of Merv, It docs not
follow, however, that every step thus
taken by Russia should be acquiesced
in as inovitiblo and irreversible because it has been carefully concealed from
observation until it could be presented as a
fait acOompU, The oeaifon of Sarakhs must
he considered separately from the ease of
Merv. Wu may indeed call to mind the reiterated and voluntary pledges of Russian
statesmen thut thn completion of the communication between the Caspian and
Turkestan, which has beon finally secured
by the possession of Merv, waa to mark the
utmost limit ofliussian ambition, though we
du not cure to insist on this point. The
question for the Government is whether thu
cession of Ssrakhs by Persia to lier powerful
neighbour does not affect our policy in Asia
fur more Mliously thau any breach of faith
or diplomatic surprise ou the part of Russia.
Sarakhs lies on the vorge of the dominions
of Persia, on t!i>-' borders of the " Trans-
Caspian territory" recently annexed by
Russia, and close to the north-western
frontier of Afuhiiuistan. Its political and
strategical importance depends on its situation on tho rive* which divides some forty
unlus higher up. From that point the road
westward by the valley of the Tejond leads
to Meshed and thence into the heart of
Persia, that to tho south by the valley of the
Heri-Rud to Herat, and theme to Candahar.
Tho recent advance of Russia from the
Caspian by Kizel Arvat and Askahad will
bo carried by the acquisition of Sarakhs to
a point whence either Persia or Afghanistan
or both can be menaced. The advantago
which such commanding position must give to
Russia has lieen insisted upon, not only by
Conservatives, but by liberals and by no one
more strongly than by the Duko of Argyll
in the debate on Lord Lytton's motion on
the annexation of Merv twu months ago. "It
is" he said perfectly certain that if Russia
over invaded India, sho would never send an
army, or even a detachment from tho Oxus
through Merv. I believe that Russian advance of a serious kind must come through
the fertile districts of Persia ; it must come
by Meshed and Sarakhs, and have the resources of that country at its command."
For sueh an advance, undoubtedly, the
Convention stated in the official organ of
the Government of the Caucasus, to have
been concluded between Russia and Persia,
provides facilities which if it be allowed to
be carried out may be, and probably will be
used for objects not agreeable to this count
ry " If"—again we quote the Duke of
Argyll, —-the Government are clear that
Russia is making for Persia along the Merv
oasis or in any other direction, with a view
to making that country wholly or in part
the basis of military operations, we snail
then be in an entirely new position and able
to take our own measures in Afghanistan."
The speeches of ministers in both houses—
especially those of Lord Kimberley, Lord
Northbrooke, and Sir Charles Dilko-—
though containing no admission that Sarakhs
was likely to be ceded to Russia, recognised
the truth thatweoould not reman i inditi , AND GET YOUR MONEY'S W J
erent to the Russian advance even as far as!
Merv. The road from Merv into Afghanistan runs through the valley of the Murghah
and iscut off from tie Southern Provinces

ARRIVAL  OF   Tflfe   NEW
LOCOMOTIVES.
The tug "Blakeley," of Port Townsend,
arrived at the railway wharf at 10,30 on
Monday morning last, having in tow the
three-masted schooner "Courier," of San
Francisco, with the two long-expected pew
locomotives for the C. P. R. The announcement of the arrival drew a large crowd to
the wharf, many of whom remained to watch
the interesting process of unloading tlie
ponderous machines upon the wharf. Master"
Mechanic Armstrong has had the locomotives in charge ever since their arrival in
Portland, and ne alro directed the work of
revealed itself, in quartern it was least expected from. It has killed General Grant's
chances for a.iy future nomination, and has
smirched Ins character a good deal, while as
for his three sous, it has exhibited them in
lights u hich may yet place theui in jail,
where they undoubtedly ought to be. Perhaps a brief history oj the lust Wall St. panic muy be of some interest to trie ruaders of
the Gi ardi.an.
Well, then, a little more than a year ago,
a young fellow named Want appeared on
Wall St.. aud by dexterous manipulation of
stocks ami a run of good luck, established
for bintsell the reputation of a brilliant financier, ifu is a jew, as arc moat of the
brulceraon ohange just now* He had, ere
thie, been acquainted with the young Grants,
ami had given them '"pointers." The young
Gi uiU have considerable influence over the
"old man," who was to have been Kmperor
of the United States, you know, ami who,
whatever may he his knowledge of the art 01
war, is a-i an innocent lamb in the hands of
the bulls and the bears. Grunt was rich he-
fore the crash and he is not poor now, for
he has a pension of $30,00-* that no one can
touch, lie was worth over a million when
his sous induced him to go Into partnership
with the faithful Ferdinand Wurd and establish the Marine Bank. General Grant
was the tigure head and gave respectability
io the firm, ami thu young (."rant!-) and their
friends made of the concern a fat milch cow,
to bo milked on all possible occasions. They
all drew large sums of money, and tho bank
paiil extraordinary dividends, It was stated
By Ward, that owing tu Grant's standing
with the Government, the bank would discount contracts. It is well known that contractors have to wait a long time for their
money, but Grant & Ward would obtain a
settlement at once. Hence they wero able
to borrow all round, and they did borrow to
the extent of $14,IMMJ,000. Thev obtained
S-'.OOtMMW) from the Second National Rank,
ami consequently, when thu crash came, thu
Marine pulled this other mushroom institution ((own with it. Then the excitement
bewail. Have you ever soon oOO lunatics on
an excursion. Probably not; but tliey are
well regulated, highly disciplined people
compared with the Wall St. brokers iu a
panic. As disaster after disaster was announced on change, after the Marine bunk
luspante, the excitement was awful. Down
went inistitutioii alter institution, supposed
to lie Brm as u rock, and millionaires were
transformed Into beggars at a wave of the
enchanted gavel of the president Ncverhas
been witnessed such hypothicatuig und such
re-hypothicating. Kven Jay Gould trembled oil his throne of stocks. After a few
days Ward was arrested for fraudand placed
in jail, n here he is now. Next came Fisk,
President of another great banking firm, who
was so obliging to his son-in-litw, thu brilliant Ferdinand!. Others were eagerly
sought for, but they had taken time by the
firelock uud escaped to Canada. Ward
threatens to make discoveries which will implicate the Grants, father and sons. The
General gave up everything but his pension,
and the sons have sold their horses aud are
keeping quiet. Their first attempt at vaulting into thu circle of millionaires has not been
a success.
Somewhat like Ferdinand wto a John C.
Eno, President of the Second National Bank.
His father was an immensely wealthy man,
ami perhaps is so still, made so by strict
economy and attention to business. His in-
fluencegot John C. the presidency of the
bank, at a salary of $10,000 a year. Ten
thousand, indeed! He spent that sum every
week upon fast horses and other fast cattle.
When the crisis came he was $200,000short,
which the old man paid up at once, so that
the hank would go 6u. After a few hours
the deficit wns discovered'to be $4,000,000.
Again Mr. Eno made it up, not liking to disgrace his son. At noon, another million
shortage turned up smiling, and Eno wept
and paid. W|ule he was sitting with the
directors watching the run on the bank, a
man entered with a cheque, drawn by young
Eno that morning in his own favor. He had
not turned up, because lie had an idea, that
generous and wealthy as his father is, he
would not, when he reached bottom, ruin
himself altogether in behalf of this young
thief.    The cheque was honored.     As the

Recent yeart> have been usually prolific in discoveries of the remains of the
prehistoric inhabitants of KnglanoV An
interesting discovery of the kind has
lately been made in the valley of the
Ancholme, near Hrigg, in Lincolnshire.
Some laborers who were excavating
brick earth caraeupon a corduroy road
at a depth of some tftven feet below tbe
surface. Above tlie road is a stratum
of six feet of clay, and upon the clay
lies a layer of peat. Il is known that
this peat bas occupit-d its present position for considerably more than a thousand ycarp, a Roman road, which is still
iu good order, crossing it. The newly-
discovered track is formed of huge oaken beams, which are fastened into the
glacial drift beneath by means of oaken
pins; and it is believed by geologists
who have visited the excavations that
these timbers were laid down at least
ten thousand years ago. The track
fleems to be about a mile in length; but
whither it led and what was its use are
questions which are scarcely likely tb
be wived.
1 he Church of the Oratory on Bramnton
road Loudon, whicft was n-.vnt.lv opened by
i Ordinal Manning with much pomp and
ircumstance is the largest place of worship
built hy the Roman Catholics in England
»ince the Reformation and'will be able to
contain more worshippers' than any church
in London, with the exception of St. Pauls
and Westminster Abbey. Inaddition to the
high altar there are no less than nine different chapels each with its own altar. The
style of architecture is that known as the
Italian Jteinissance, and re-fenib.es very
much that of St. Andrea Dellavalle, St Ignatius, and the Oesu at Koine. The cost of
building dp to the present time, for it is
not timshed is 9404,000.
One of the only two remaining Roman
milestones in Great Britain is in Cannon
street, London the other being in Chester-
holm in Northumberland. There is Roman
work about the Tower of London. Until
quite recently an old Roman turret was
standing within a hundred yards of Ludgate
.it..it i n and in Cripplegate may yet be Been
a aplenhid specimen of the original Roman
wall.
Rubinstein has been telling some amusing
stories of his sojourn at the different capitals. "Why do I sit as if I were asleep
when I play?" he Baid, in reply to a queetSbn.
"I will gladly tell you how that is. Some
five years ago I gave a concert in London.
My audience seemed interested, and I myself
was well disposed.    As I was playing   Beet-

... is-j.u-nj-1. as x was playing Be
hoven'fl 'Appas-jTonata,' without thinking, I
looked around, and there, at the other end
of the piano, 1 saw a lady gossiping as fast
as possible! It was like a douche of ice water.
1 closed my eyes at once, and since then I
have never dared to even cast a glance at an
audience." Another douche'of a different
kind Rubinstein received at Paris, His
Ocean Symphou> had been played; the composer himself had conducted the orchestra
aad received the stormy applause of the
public. Friend* and strangers alike crowded
around him after the performance; all were
d.dii{hted, saying that it had been an even*t
in the musical world, and that all Paris was
full of it. Well satisfied, Herr Rubinstein
went to his hotel, and on his way he met one
of the first- French composers, who, with
surprise and pleasure in bis eyes, called out:
"What you at Paris, Herr Rubinstein? This
is a pleasant surprise! But are you not
thinking of appearing in public?"
The children of Grisi and Mario, the gri-
settes and marionettes, as they were called,
were very lovely. They came hi one morning about fifteen years ago to Rossini, guided
by their mother, and sang an air with their
fresh young voices bo sweetly that Rossini,
plunging his hand deeply into his pocket
brought out some sous, and presented eacu
with one, saying, "I always pay my artists.
Keep this m a inemoiitoof yourfirstaalary."
