"Hong iton, ynu are talking wildly,"
' said, frightened by the intense griei

"No, Celia, quite rationally, You
must excuse these allusions, which 1
cannot suppose to poatess any interest
fur you. Tim truth i.-, I am crazy on

'I h ■ guests were walking in and out

though J was certain we were hidden

hat some one in quest of n nook for a

"Houghton, we must not stay longer
here. Even with a cousin it would be
lUDJeut for  small talk."
"Why rln you aay e en wi*h a cousin!
A cousin would not palliate the wrong,
if any wrong existed. 1 know your

ii unguardedly, but very emphatically,
last -May. the day W8 were at the Glen.
Well, because of your opinion, which
rallies quite with iniiu'. I have taken
ouragH to ask you if you think ynu
oould ever like ma sufficiently to marry
llie!"
My lirart thumped triumphantly ui
high in my throat. The victory wa.-
iiiine!
Seeing me hold Lack, lie went on:
"I know it will lake time'for vou to
recover the shock this question must
give ynu; and you may take any tim
you like, Celia, even if you give in

He took my hand in ins, and gazed
uin .itly into my face.
My breath caine quick and short,
and notwithstanding all my proparu
ions I was confused hy his candor,
hy his gentleness. However, a minul.
sufficed to compose nm to my former
elf possession, and withdrawing my
and I said rigidly and clearly, but
with my head hung  down:—
"When we were children, Houghton,
we evinced an instinctive dislike towards one another. Yours seems to
have disappeared with years. Mine
has not, and never will I could never.
never love Jrou. As it is, I do not
even like you." That was a lie! It
- Inm Id have choked me. Was it the
consciousness of the pain I was inflicting that made me act thus! It was a
kind of.pain to myself too, a pain that
brough'. a stinging sense of pleasure.
An expression of great sorrow spread
over his face and rested there, making
him seem grievously older than be was,
1 saw it, rpf I went on cruelly:—
"Vuu are very kind to laik me to
marry you. iSouie lady of diatinotion
win one day, 1 hope, appreciate the
honor of such an offer.' Here was
another falsehood' How one involves
in uny!
He waiteil some time before he ventured any remark, and th'-ii. with trembling voice as if deeply hurt, he said
as quietly us ever; —
"Never wound unnecessarily, Celia.

"It's a shame, 1 .-all it," she said
hotly; "a shame, a crying shame, Ciss.
You are a blind little fool not to see
vmi have refused the best man in
l'orth, or anyw-here else for the matter
of that. Some day you will r<-j..-iit
your treatment of the noblest of men
and the most devoted of admirers.''
"Ho, ho Fan ma chcre, this is strong!
I am sorry he came to me with his
atilted honor."
"Well, this I tell you, Ciss, if he had
some to ni'-, I too might have refused
him: not from ymir motive, but from
feeling unworthy of bim. He is one
in t"ii thousand. Listen! The belts
are chiming out the old year! Here's
your partner peering about for you.
A nice contrast to your OOUlin. T
wi.ii ynu jny of your fair, beardless
youth, Ciss.    Yon are a fooll"
In my wicked momenta any sound
at all iii the air apeaki out to me what
1 hush my struggling coiiaeietice from
a ing, and now while we danced the
chimes rang out violently -"You are
.i fool, you art a fool," louder and louder until my swelling heart was forced
to answer back, "1 am a fool, a fool,
a tool.' It was over at last, the peal
ing and the dancing—*over, thank good
ness, Thru Mrs. Mobrebead signed
in.* to go "' her; 1 went and she announced her intention of leaving, I.
ie ing vii'v glad, made no objection. In
the carriage she je^t-rl vexatioualy
about many things, r'nnnii pressed
my band, and asked aloud, did 1 remark
bow tbe joy belle had kepi excellent
time to the couple! which was still
dancing through her   head.
"King in the valiant man   and
free,
The largest heart, the kindlier
hand','
Mrs. Moorehad said innocently thai
she thought tin- chimes played the New-
Year's hymn, did they not)
I told her not to mind Fan, who
was a iniTe roinaii'ist, whereupon Fan
drew my head to hers! and whispered.
"Perhaps 1 am, but not when 1 repeat,
Cr-s. you are a fool. "
That morning I did not undrota
until Father caine iii. \\ hen 1 beard
dm 1 weni to his room to till hiin
iOW 1 had got on at my rirst larg-
d.nii'i'. He surprised me by stating
t nit he had already bad a pri vat-
iescription of my behaviour and ap
poaranoa,
'What was it'" I asked,
"Oh quite favorable, my darling. It
was Houghton's. He said you oehav
d true to yourself and you looked as
wed as ynu could look. That from
iloughton was a great pull. From
.nyone else it ,-ould be translated two
ways. Ho dropped in on his way
home to tell me tliat his mind was
made up to accept Hollingford's offer,
and so he'll he leaving us for London
shortly. Kiss tne now and be oil'to
bed. Goodnight, child. Sleep sound
and  don't get up early."
Winn the tardy morning appeared
in its veil of snow I had not slept My
mind was wide awake, exulting over
my deed, that mischievous deed, pondering on what meaning would be uest
to take out of Houghton's report to
Father, that I had acted true to myself,
and wondering was there a chance of
getting to London in the summer when
Parliament was up.

The "Colonial" says, "the Settlement bill confers a great and lasting
benefit on our common country,1' and
adds, "if any proof were necessary ut
have but to point to the number of new
buildings now in course of erection
throughout the city." If ihe writer of
the article which contains those extracts
pointed lo the moon and said lhat is
proof sufficient for our readers, he would
not surprise any one.
The fare from I'ort Moody lo • ale by

T't people of N'.rva .Scotia are not
satisfied with the Dominion magnaes.
A joint committee appointed by both
branches nf the local leg statute says,
"the province, before federation, was in
a most healthy financial condition ; bu
its taxes since the union, have been increased fifty per ceni."
John and George Stephenson, convicted of the murder of an old man
named John McCarthy, were hanged on
the 4th inst. at Winnepeg. They were
very wicked sinners, but they d ed like
Christians truly penitent. They kissed
the crucifix repeatedly and prayed to
God for pardon. The drop fell and
they were in eternity I
The House ol Commons at Ottawa
have discussed the question of prohibiting Chinese emigration into British Columbia, Sir John MacDonald amended
ihe resolution so as 10 read : " In the
opinion of parliament such legislation
should be passed as would restrict or
regulate the immigration of Chinese into Canada." That means nothing.
'Restriction' may permit a million ol
them to come here ; and 'regulate' may
refer to the number lhat may come in
each month. Gold is ihe god of this
continent; He rules in the Dominion
and Cheap Labor is one of his Saints.
The case of Hartney vs. Onderdonk,
was Up before the Supreme Court on
the 4th, and referred for settlement lo
arbitrators.
In a leading article the "Colonist'
says, "If we are to maintain our position
as ihe Premier City of the Prov nee, we
must not let the grass grow under our
feet" And so the citizens are scared
by the shadows of coming events. In
five years from ihis date Port Moody
will be the Queen City of the Pacific ;
the capital will be in ihe Royal City, and
Victoria will get her goods and mails
from the east via Port Moody. The
reign of Vancouver's Victoria is over.
The Cajur d'Alene mines are very-
well puffed aud paraded. The excitement produced by false reports has led a
population to the wrong place. The
fine nuggets discovered there by speculators are made of moonshine. Starving correspondents sent out timely warnings, but newspaper pud's sent in a tide of
deluded gold seekers, and the miner-
may, in a rage, hang the first newspaper
reporter tbey catch. Puffing for pay is
a disreputable trade.
Twenty inches of snow fell in London, Ontario, on the 1st of this month.
The Chinese are preparing to open a
bank in Victoria, and rumor says they
will discount the while man's good paper at a rate of interest little more than
half the sum paid to our local banks.
Of the system under which borrowers
are charged twelve per cent, per annum,
the Chinaman saysr 'too muchee no
good." The charge for interest on good
paper is at least twice what it should be.
And if John reduces the rate of interest
he will make money and friends.
ENGLAND.
The Franchise bill is now before the
jeople of the United Kingdom. The
Saturday "Review" says, "it will throw
the whole, political power of the three
kingdoms into, tlie hands of the working-classes. To them it gives two mil-
Iftnv votes," The "Times" sayB, "On its
merits no one haa ventured to assail it."
The Dublin "Freeman's Journal" says,
"it is a deathblow to dynamiters and
discontent." The London "Standard"
says, "it is dangerou&because it will in-
crease the power of the Irish electors
who will, when it becomes law, elect
ninety Home Rulers!" The Dublin
"Nation" says, "no sane Irishman
dreams of separation, and that a vast
majority of the Irish people are proud
ai the empire." The Daily "Telegraph"
saya, 'The Conservatism of to-aday
must appeal to the millions or cease to
exist; and that the bill contains several highly conservative reservations.
The Conservative Irish journals say,
"it will place the loyal population of
the North completely in the power of
the Home Rulers." The Leeds "Mer
cury buvb, "it will give to Parnell and
his friends the power of controlling
measures designed ior the benefit of
the three kingdoms." The press of
the whole United Kingdom declares the
bill will become law.
The law s made to prevent the use of
dynamite an, strong, but not strong
enough. Any person found in posses
sion of that destroyer, may, on conviction, he sent into penal servitude for
life. The hill wuuts another clause
something like this, "The person convicted of attempting to destroy life or
property with dynamite, shall, on conviction, he sentenced to suffer death by
dynamite." Half a dozen dynamiters
sent to the upper regions would descend in a thousand pieces of useful in
formation for the heartless sneaking
cowards who are a disgrace to human
nature.

Burns and Moore are excluded ! And
they were, unquestionably, three of our
grratest poets.
A vast distance separates historic
England from the England represented
by Gladstone, Bright, and Chamberlain. Merv has been annexed by Russia, and that stronghold guards the
Russian on his march to Herat. It is
the Key of Persia and Afghanistan.
Twenty years ago an English army
would stop the march of Russia in that
direction, but the statesme-i of Europe
seem to think that Egypt is the key to
India, and therefore it is to be hoped
that old John Bull will put that key
into his pocket at once and keep it
there. The Berlin "Krewtz Zeitung"
says, "the incorporation of Egypt with
the British Empire will complete the
gigantic chain which England is coiling round the body of Europe. The
chief links in this chain are Gibraltar,
Malta, Cyprus, Egypt, the Suez Canal,
Aden, India, and her possessions in
China." And the writer adds, "she
will surely monopolize the trade of
the world and make the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean English lakes."
And then comes the comic part of the
writer's essay. He recommends anal-
liance between Germany and France.
To save Europe these two powers
must unite and stop that system of
chain making. But it would be as
reasonable to propose on alliance between St. Peter and his Satanic Majesty. For the sake of Europe and civilization, old John will finish the job
and have at his hack his sturdy old
friends* Pat anil Sandy.
It is amusing to see all Europe in
terror of the handful of men who own
the United Kingdom.
In "Punch," Gladstone appears
quite at ease taking a snooze in the
folds of the Franchise Bill.
THE UNITED STATES
did contain one magnificent woman;
but she is now in London. Julie Jackson, the daughter of the famous Stonewall Jackson, early last month rode a
splendid charger down Rotten Row, in
Hyde Park, London, and captured the
nobility of ihe United Kingdom. She
looked as if she were intended by Nature
to live on tne hack of a bounding steed.
I here she appears to be her fathers
daughter, and by no great stretch of the
imagination one could fancy her leading
the Southern cavalry to battle She is
quite young, still in tier teens; her complexion is sallow, but her features aie
decoraled by the magnificent lustre of a
pair of big b ack eyes. She is highly
educa ed, a fearless, sensible, sweet
woman, and the :ords say she is an
angel on horseback. i-he will surely
capture a coronet. A Connauaht man
who saw her on horseback in Ihe Row,
exclaimed, "My God! there goes the
daughter ol Grannaile—the Queen of ihe
Wen.'
A wonderful discovery has been
made in Ameiica Electricity applied 10

good and wholesome. Now, if electricity
could be applied 10 whisky, brandy, gin
and rum, and if it would take out ail the

The New York ' World" presen.s its
readers wth the awful faces of the dynamiters. Congressman Jack Finerty, Herr
Most, William Robinson, I'atrick Joyce,
Prof. Mezzoroff, Patrick Ford, Patrick
Sheridan, Justns H. Schwab, and O'-
Donovan Rossa—a mort hornd-looUng
gang. Every decent man who sees their
faces must say a dose of dynamite is the
medicine required lor such a brood of
vipers. Heir Most is like a lunatic playing with lightning. Robinson looks like
a man preparing to laugh at his own
iniquities: Mezzoroff has the faceola
criminal; he keeps a bnll-dog and a barroom; all the others appear to be thinkers and the man who c ih think of destroy ng human life by dynamite is the
mo t insignificant wretch-.
When the scissors editor has nni-hed
the search for news ih the American
newspapers, he retires to rest and thinks
of the miseries nf the rmiltilude robbed,
and fleeced by the self-made members
of society, poisoned by rirm-sellers, and
despised in a free country by knaves who
revel in the ruins of decency. Robbery
is patronized in that great country by
men in high places; pistol piactice at the
bar seems to be a national   pastime.
Divorce, death, degradation, and dishonor, march band-in-hand a't over the
broad domain. Indeed the American
newspapers are every day becoming
more and mote like the criminal records
of the old Bailey. What a difference
there is between the social happy fife of
the naked savages in Pelew and the polished barbarians who appear in broadcloth and silk on the sidewalks in any
great American city. In a few years
more, if the genius of the continent
continues to irspire ibe people,
t m 11 of feeling iu America
will find himself in hot water,
and wish to be a dog, a mouse, a dove,
or anything to escape from the society
of brutes in human shape.
MR. CUNNINGHAMS ADDRESS.
I From th. al u land Ouardlaa.]
We have just received a copy of the
bill issued by Mr. Cunningham to the
electors of the City.      It is small and
quite in keeping with tho man.    It has
a mourning  border,   indicative  of the
aack-cloth and ashes to which he desires
to reduce this city.    Mr. Cunningham,
in this precious document, is concise and
to the point, if he  does  not think the
electors worthy of a more lucid explanation.   He says— "lam in accord with
tlie policy of the present Government,
and,' if elected, win give Una a hearty
support."     No   doubt!     The    whole
affair of the vacancy was created by the
clique, and Mr. Cunningham was chosen
as tho most likely to answer their purpose.     That is, Mr. Cunningham is an
admirer  of  the  Settlement  bill,  the
Kootenay  bill, the Port Simpson grab,
and alls the other beautiful acts of the
present  Government.      He  will  he a
useful tool to honest John, and "heartily" support all he is doing. We strong
ly suspect that Mr.   Cunningham   will
not be troubled with the onerous duty
of voting when  honest  John   requires
him, and during the rest of the session
keeping his scat warm.    Mr. Cunningham has a great deal to do in the City
Council in order to  keep them in the
way they should go.      He is economical himself and desires the  Council to
be  so;   he   would    have   them   send
all   white   men   out  of  the  city  in
order to keep frugal, temperate Chinamen to do our work.     The public may
not  be aware that  Mr.  Cunningham
advocated employment of Chinamen in
the streets of this city, instead of white
men, because the Celestials would work
for less money.     Every  supporter  of
Mr. Cunningham,  if he  risks  a poll,
will be supporters of honest John and
Chinese labor.      Mr. Cunningham and
his clique arc   responsible for the present  dull times  in this  city; are  our
electors going to vote for a man  who
will   undoubtedly continue his efferts
to ruin the city ?
fjr the man ne likes best. There are
sevciu! qualities required in a member ;
he must be |ierfectly untramroeled ; be
must be thoroughly solid for hit constituents ; be most have no back records against him and he must be able
to express himself and hold his own in
the House. This thing of electing a man
to take his scat in the House ami sit
like "a bum pon a log" all day, merely
giving his vole when he sees some other
man doing so, is entirely played our. We
want a man who is not only a thorough
New Westminsterian, bul a mainlander.
The change to be brought aliout by our
vicinin to Port Moody will be something
quite beyond the imagination of many of
our readers, and as the capital will no
doubt be returned to the mainland in a
year or two, we cannot see any better position for it at least for a number of
yean, than this city. The duties of our
representative will be arduous and we
shall not be content with a dummy ; he
will require to combat all the power and
influence of Victoria ; and although he
may not be successlul in the prcsem parliament, he certainly will be in the
next. ^
THE CITY ELECTION.
IFrom the Mainland Guardian.]
We were somewhat taken by surprise
when we learned that an election was
necessary for the city, the resignation of
our late representative being quite unexpected. How, why, or wherefore ihe
resignation has taken place, will be a
matter for future discussion ; we have
now to deal wiih the manner in which
ihe vacancy must be filled, and the kind
of member we must choose to replace
Mr. Armstrong. It must have been
perfectly clcar.hy the experience we have
unfortunately passed tlnough, that an)"
one having the slightest tinge of a leaning to Victoria interests must be careful
Iv avoided. Our representative must be
entirely devoted 10 New Westminster,
not from any pretended claim he ma)
have from being engaged in business
here or being possessed of property,
(honest John said he was the largest lot-
owner in the city) but he must be clear
of the slightest suspicion of belonging to
the clique who, from the apathy of the
more sensib e portion, have to a certain
extent ruled this city and brought it to
its present torpid srate The cl que we
refer to. are die friends and agents of
honest John, who, whatever he may pretend to do oi say, is the greatest enemv
this city ever had. We need hardly say
then, lhat his friends are our enemies,
and they must be carefully elected to
stay at home. We are told that a requisition has been signed inviting Mr. Cunningham to come forward as a candidate ; we do not think that Mr. Cunningham will do so, because it would be
to meet certain defeat Mr Edmonds
has offered himself as a candidate, no
doubt under the impression that he has
an excellent chance of Election That,
of course, is his affair; the result will be
betrer known on polling day. Mr. Bole
has also been invited by requisition nu
merously signed, and he has every reason to suppose that his chances are fa
vorable ; and certainly he appears to us
as the most eligible candidate wi o1 has
yet come forward. All this by the way.
Those who have ever frequented racecourses must remember the eagerness
with which the preliminary canter was
scanned by the knowing ones as indica
ting the capabilities of the horse ; let us
trot out our candidates and hear what
they have got to.say lor themselves, at'a
public meeting, to be called by the May
or, so that everyone will be able to
choose his favorite' and record his vote

FINALLY PASSED.
fKr',11 trieM.in.ijitOBarill.il.)
As we predicted, the Grits generally
voted for the bill: they had many reasons for doing so. In the first place
thoy hate British Columbia with an
enduring hate. It was the Conservatives who first brought us into Confederation, and we have always been looked upon as a pet bantling of that party.
Then the Grits have a sort of fiendish
joy in knowing that the Settlement bill
is in direct opposition to the desire of
seven-eighths of our people. Then again
the Province has always lieen held up
as rich in gold and coal; the gold is
supposed to he pretty well played out,
but the coal was unquestionable wealth
and still remained. The coal is now
given away to a foreign company,
hence the province is worthless. So
the Grits, in helping to get rid of the
only remaining article of value—the
coal—supposed they were putting a
kind of extinguisher on the provinee.
Then again they secured for the future
disposal of some Grit Government,
three and a half million acres of land
in tlie Peace river valley, which was
also a consideration. The remainder
of those who supported the bill was
principally composed of the rank and
file of the Conservatives, who look at
Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir Charles
Tupper and follow them as a matter of
duty; the minority was composed of the
intelligent and conscientious member!
who look beyond the present moment,
and who see, with regret, that the Dominion is thoughtlessly giving to aliens
incalculable wealth, and, at the same
time, handing over one of the most
powerful weapons against ourselves in
case of emergency. The island is virtually handed over to an American
company, because their preponderating
influence must eventually crush the life
out of every trade or industry not contracted by themselves. Now all this
reckless folly was brought nhout by the
honest John Government, incited by
Victorians who are anxious to secure
money—^no matter how obtained or at
what sacrifice to the province, so long
as they obtain it—in order to leave the
country forever. It certainly appears
to us extraordinary that many people
in and about Victoria who will certainly never leave the province, sat tamely
by while a political adventurer like
honest John, gave away their heritage.
In the cuse rrf the Graving Dock, they
have allowed to be cut away from
them, their lock of strength.
While the Federal and Imperial Governments were bound to
carry the dock to completion, there
would have been no talk of removing
the naval station; in fact, so far as these
governments were concerned, the removal of the Graving Dock, or rather
the abandonment of that at Esquimalt,
was the chief object in view. Their
argument when the extraordinary gift
the coal lands was discussed, would be
this: "Well, they must have tneir bit
of railway, and we don't see why we
should prevent them; the bill relieves
us from our obligations touchftig the
construction of, what would he to us a
useless undertaking, and under any
circumstances we can do without their
coal, and then we shall have done with
them for good and all." Of course our
readers perfectly understand that the
Settlement bill absolves both the Federal and Imperial Governments from
all further obligation in regard to the
dock. It is true that in the bill is a
clause by which the Dominion Government engages tocomplste the dock, but
.when 1 The sums necessary for the
purpose are not yet voted, and will
probably not be voted'ddrirrg. tho existence of the conservative party in power. When the Grits take hold of the
reins we would ask those in Victoria
who have given away their birthright,
what chance will there 1* for their dock
then t particularly as by that time a
large dock w ill have been completed at
Burrard Inlet. But thia is not the
worst of the matter. From the commencement of the railway till its finish,
Nanaimo will be made the principal
place on the Island. Messrs. Huntington A Co. will do this with a very
clear and simple object. They will
bring all tlie supplies for their works
uud their men on the steam colliers that
will return to San Francisco laden with
coal. The goods will be brought from
the Bay City at a nominal freight and
hence can be sold at prices far In-low
those at which Victoria traders can
sell them. Thus the beautiful dream
of Victoria traders will be rudely dispelled and they will find that honest
John and his colleagues have pocketed
all the stakes in the litile game. But
we are not yet at the end of the list of
misfortunes which Victoria has brought
upon itself. The Central Pacific com
pany will establish several lines of
steamers at Barclay Sound, and Duns-
muir's canal or more probably a rail-
*..ay, will be (constructed via Englishman's river, to that point. An attempt will bj made by means of a ferry from Buaard Inlet to divert the
overland passengers to take the Central
Pacific boats to Frisco, China, or Australia. In this they will be opposed hy
the Northern Pacific Company who
will run their lines direct to and from
Port .Moody. But all this will be
drawing away the life blood from Victoria, aid it will gradually sink till its
prinoml importance will be confined
to its icing a rendezvous for Indians,
and Li will reign at James Bay, for of
cours, the retention of the capital at
Victoia with the naval station at
Port jfoody, would he too absurd. We
are avnre of course, that several of the
knowng ones have hedged, and have
secursd land in Barclay Sound, so that
they rore nothing about the fate of
Victoria. If the present capital was
to swm, good and well, but if it begin!
to siik these rats will be the first to
leaveit. Wc strongly suspect that
thisi knowing ones will be the most
completely sold, and their anathemas
on linii'.'.t John and his colleagues will
he something terrible to hear hy and

Tlcre is never tuo much information published, of an   exact   ami   satisfactory  s.irt,
iicirniiig the progress of the Cliugies canal.
The mail news from Aspiuwatl gives sum-
rii'ii. accounts nf the sickneas prevailing
aui'.ag the workmen, and nf tire nuts when
there are any. The statistics of Mr. de Les-
seps are gornl as far as they go, but sinne-
tiuiss are made too much the basis tor rosy
infis-eiices, Among tbe must instructive
documents on tbe subject must be rauked
the reports of Aini-i i nn irnval ollicers, and
puiticuUrly of I.icut. liaymniid P. Hodgcrs.
A year ago Lieut. Rodgftfl gave a summary
of the state of the work on the great ship
cuiml, and now he presents another annual
r.iiiiw of it. The two changes in the plan
wlich he hus to note are, first, the intrn-
duttiuii of a titlal dock 01- basin at the Paci-
ri.ti rininii... and, secondly, the establishment of a large port at ench end nf the canal,
and an intermediate statiuli at Tavernilla.
Tire ports will uccuinoilate many vessels at
..iii-; the central station will allow vessels
to pass one another there; the tidal dock
will suirui-,i a uiiirorm leit-l 111 the canal hy
controlling the currents produced from in-
equalities in the tidea ci the two oceans.
Lieut. Knilgi-ra also nutcs that thu deflections of the watei-couraes along the route
lisvir been determined:
"lu regard to the deflections of the rivers
if the Atlantic slupcs from their present beds,
il may be sairl in brief that it is the intention ti, keep their waters at all times to the
Wile of the canal, anil removed from it by
iscans nf cuts and sluices. * * * Prom Mat-
urliiu to the Atlantic there will bu licsi-le
the canal proper a teootld, but smaller, canal
olose tn and to the eastward of it, carrying
the waters-of the Upper Chagres to the
ocean;and a third* and still smaller, canal
or sluice for the purpose of druiuing tire
watershed laying to the westward of the
route."
The precise amount of work done on tbe
variouB 1 -1 !,,ie tie- Aripiuwall, the llatuu,
the I'oi-gonn, the Hohio Soldrido, the Obispo,
the t'ulelira and*so mi—is set forth in detail by Lieut. 11< -l.-i'i -. In some sections
the rate of prngresshas been gnod, whereas
in others it bas been bitterly disappointing.
On the whole, be concludes, "while it 11
evident that much important work has been
dune, and a considerable excavation made,
yet I believe that the expectations of a year
ago bavd nut been fully realized." Uut he
accounts for this on tlie gruiid that tlie
foundation of an dndertakiug so gigantic
requires much time; and   the  railway   and
fiort facilities have, until now, beeu very
imited:
"The capacity of tbe railway has been
more than doubled, scvonteen trains daily
passing over the road at present, instead of
the eight of a year ago, and1 when the quay
of the Terre-pleine it, completed, and its
water front dredged, the discharge of vessels and delivery of cargoes, along the line
will be greatly expedited."
Wheo willthe canal be finished? Lieut.
Rorlgers tells ub tt»t there are now 16,000
men at work, and tnat while last year they
excavated 700,000 cubic ndetres a month,
early this year they expected tu reach more
than a million, and before the next rainy
season more than two and a half millions.
From May to December the raine reduce the
amount of work, but it is hoped that the
average annual excavation hereafter will be
about twenty-five millions. Mow Mr. de
Lesscps has said that the- canal would be
open to trailer in the year 1888; but Lieut.
Kodgera estimates that jt the highest rate
of excavation now relied Upon it must take
seven years more to finish the deep Culebra
section, and, of course, until the laat portion
is done, the eanal cannot be used.
As to the probable cost, Lieut. Rodgers,
after close study under some difficulties, infers that 840,000,000 have been already spent
on the canal, which is a full third of the
amount estimated by Mr. de Lessens for the
tiit.il cost of the work. There can be no
question, however, that the further sub-
senptions which may become necessary will
be procured without trouble, and we judge
tbat there is good reason for expecting that
the canal will be in full operation, by the
year 1802, or in season to help celebrate the
four hundredth anniversary of true great
voyage of G'olumbns to America.— New York

We learn that the working force on this
division of the C. P. R. has been largely increased during the past week, there being
some sixty gangs ot Chinamen engaged in
tiiiisliiug Onderdonk s contract.
Twenty - Fourth of May.—Our last
week's suggestion unent a celebration of
Queeu's Birthday in Port Moody, is likely
tu bear fruit; but a concerted action on the
part of our citizens will be necessary to eii-
Bure success.
MoMullen'h pile-driver, which has lain
so loug iu the vicinity of the wharf, has
been laided and towed to Westminster f.-r
repairs. The machinery was taken out and
ilnppeu op-couutry, where it will aid iu the

Mr. Aikin.h ot the Telegraph Otlice, has
received letters from prominent business
neu in Prescott, Arizona, and Winnipeg,
enquiring as to the advantages of Port Moody from a business standpoint. ".Straws
show how the wind blows."
Fecit Tubes.—Mr. J. T. Scott, not con-
teut to be famous as au hotel-keeper, is am
bilious to become a fruit-raiser, and to that
eud he has planted one hundred apple trees
of choice varieties, on his ranch at the Coquitlam. We predict great success from his
venture.
Mrh. Pot.cr, eenior, is making a gardeu
in front of her residence on the right-of-way.
She will raue flowers and "garden saw. "
Sam Corxier, tbe popular ferryman, is

his business hereafter.
Imfrovkmknth.—The Caledonia Hotel hot
received a new outfit of chain for the dining room. The Klgin House haa been painted a light drab color with trimming* ol
bright EfftW. The new additions to the
shove house are about completed, and will
ba furnished and fitted up in a few days.
Chiiwjh Notes.— The services on Sunday
were all well attended, and were quite interesting. On the evening of flood Friday there
were special Episcopal services, ani if a sufficient number of communicants come for-
waril, the Sacrament of the Lord's Supp-0)
will be celebrated to-morrow forenoon.
Tub weather lust Sunday was warm and
pleasant, and visitors to Port Moody, of
twin sexes, were quite numerous. Among
.■there we noticed E. S. Seoul.ar and wife
W, McC'.Il, Miss McClure, A. M. Herring
ind wife, S. Phillips, J. GoWstone, E. A.
Shaw, and It. McLean.
The Sawmill—The steam pile-driver be-
P»i. work on Monday, putting down piles
or the foundation of Arms'rontj & Burr's
tew mill, and rapid progress in the work has
wen made during the week. The mill is looted at the tide flats just at th? edge of
leap water, and on a line with the foot of
Kyle afreet. A tramway built on trestles
rill connect the mill with tlie shore.
ThkFirpt Bricks-To Mr. t). A. Madill

ta*rd, which tms been so long wanted to
nake the system perfect and complete, has
*een placed in position, and in a few days
»e may expect everything to be running
•noothly.
The Poet Office.—\C. B. Fletcher, Esq.,
-1- 0. Inspector, was in Port Moody on Tues-
&Y lwt, for the* purpose of looking into the
dvisability of makhig a cliange in the locator! of onr post office. We understand his
«porttoft» Department'will be favorable
* * change being made, and before many
r«eks we may expect relief from the preset highly unsatisfactory state of affairs.
l» to wHb will get the appointment, or
r*ers the office will be located, nothing def-
•fcec/un be «Rd, but we belrave the con-
"enience of the majority will be consulted.
SrpposEo AuutcTiON.—Mr. Taylor, the
gentleman who is about establishing a ship
yard in the North Arm, and who has for some
time been living with his family at Koss's
hotel, brought with bim from Japan a native
nurse girt to look after bis children. A few
days ago the little Jap lady disappeared, and
the supposition is that sbe has been abducted by aome amorous son of the Flowery
Kingdom.
The New Road.—Work commenced with
a force of three men on Monday morning,
and on Tuesday tbe force increased to about
thirty. Good progress is being made iu
grubbing and hunting, und the road for several hundred yards from tbe Westminster
end begins to look passable. Tbe men have
pitched tents at the old well on the Col.
Moody property, and are quite comfortable.
We would prefer seeing more white men
and less si washes employed, and a more liberal scale of wages adopted.
Telegraphic—Mr. A. Lindsay, formerly
postmaster and telegraph operator at Yale,
has been appointed superintendent of telegraph construction between Port Moody and
Cisco Flat. A locomotive with three cars
and a gang of men were employed otiSunday
last in distributing | oles along the road in
this vicinity, and the erection of the line
will be pushed right along. When this work
is finished, Mr. Lindsay will assume tho
duties of traiu despatches
Train Notes.—Last Saturday's train arrived an hour behind time, tho locomotive
having been derailed a few miles above
Hammond ; there were a number of passengers aboard. Tuesday's train was also an
hour late, arriving here at 5 p. in., with four
cars of cattle for tbe Westminster market, a
quantity of drilU aud giant powder for blasting at the Cooper cutting, and miscellaneous freight. Five a. ni. is the hour for departure of all regular trains.
Warning.—The Chinese are beginning to
encroach upon property in Port Moody,
which should be kept free from them. If
tbey obtain a foothold iu the central part of
the city, that neighborhood will be rendered
uninhabitable for while people, and property
will decrease in value. Necessity compels
us to tolerate a few Mongolians in the com
inunity, but let them|hurd by themselves and
not attempt to mix in with the whites. There
is no affinity between the two races, nor
ever can bo, iu spite of all that is preached
about the universal brotherhood of man.
Accident.—Mr. Shannon, who lives near
the North Road, was engaged on Friday of
last week iu chopping on a piece of laud he
has taken up about a mile back of Tiffin's
; bin .li- mill, across the bay. By some means
he managed to bring the axe down on his left
foot, completely severing the great toe and
causing a great effusion of Uood. With
much ditliculty he made his way to the mill
and Has couveyed to his home ina host. Dr.
Heslop was sent for, and he promptly re
sponded; the wounded member was amputated, anil the sufferer made as com fort able
as pi ssible. Mr. Shannon underwent the
operation with great fortitude, and consoles
himself with the reflection that "it was an
old frozen toe, anyhow, and ne never could
keep it warm!"
That Bl acted Stump !-—On Thursday afternoon the foreman of tho gang working on
the right of way between Douglas and Queen
Streets, put a heavy charge of powder beneath a large stump, located about opposite
Capt. Clarke's at k, and tired it off. The result was a genuine surprise to the entire city.
A large fragment of wood went crashing
through the new addition to the Klgin
House, another piece attacked the jail, a
third winged its flight into the ark used by
Mr. McLean as a real estate office, while a
fourth piece introduced itself to the Klgin
House billiard room. Fortunately no one
was injured, the principal damage done being to the Klgin House, to the extent, we
believe, of over three hundred dollars,
-jrcat care should Ik* exercised iu the firing
of blasts in a populated ucigliliorhood, life
and property being paramount to all other
considerations.
A Lively Time.—One day last week th
str. ltuby, which is running on the Fraser in
opposition to the ('. P. N. Co's boats, arrived
at Port Hammond and attempted to make a
landing at the wharf. The str. Reliance
was lying alongside the wharf, and agent
Mixer, of the 0, P. N. Co., refuted to allow
the Ruby's freight to Ian-.'. His objections
were overruled by force, and two tons of
freight were carried across the bows of the
Reliance to the wharf. Then the ollicers of
the Reliance refused permiission to allow the
work of discharging to proceed, and a general
"muss" between the rival crews ensued.
Capstan bars and handspikes were freely
used, and Beveral men severely injured. The
Ruby then anchored alongside, and Capt.
Moore asked Mr. Holt, Onderdonk's agent,
if the freight could be forwarded to Yale.
Mr. Holt replied tliat his employer was a
common carrier, and dare not refuse, but
when it was placed on the wharf it could not
be taken off without an order from Mr.
Mixer. This order was not given, and we
understand the Ruby returned to Victoria
with her cargo. How long do the people of
this Province propose to be rfcled by this
grasping monopoly ? The wharf at Port
Hammond, though owned and built by the
0. P. N. Co., is a public convenience, and
any vessel that can pay the wharfage fees is
entitled to land and discharge cargo. The
law has been openly violated, the public inconvenienced, and the owners of the Ruby
put to a considerable pecuniary loss, and
now we would like tbe Courts to decide
whether British Columbia belongs to the
peogfte or the'C. P. N. Co.
The CcauR D'Aleine Mines.—With respect to tne above mines the San' Francisco
Chronicle is an active bear, and whenever
speaking of them advises adventurers to go
slow". In a recent issne it says .—''There is
nothing to justify the reports whioh have
been circulated is to the richnesi, of tbe
"country in minerals.     The ground is
"ered with snow  and the middle of J tint ■
"will be the earliest date at which any prus-
"pectiug can be done.     The country is flat
"and covered with timber, and water cannot |
"be found for miles.   Tbe land is generally
"held in twenty acre tracts under the United j
"States mining law, ledges being 150 feet in
"width.     The actual condition of the conn-
"try is known by none.     It is as unknown
"ss if it lay in the heart of Africa.      Its re-
"sources art yet to be tested.      It is  folly I
"for any men to go there  expecting  to  ob-
"tain work.    There is no work  there fur
"them.    Provisions are obtained at an enor- j
"mous  cost,  aud  prices must increase   be-;
"cause tbe influx  of miners will necessitate ,
"a demand   which  the  limited  number   of:
"pack trains now carrying merchandise from
"the railroad  to  the  Cutur d'Alene mines
"cannot supply.     Nothing in the  way of
"prospecting can be done  for six   weeks or
"more, and  therefore the  grtitlemuo   who
"furnishes  this information warns any  one
"from going thereat present.    If the mines
"are rich, the fact is yet to be ascertained.
"Togo there now would only involve hard-
"sbips, sickness, and perhaps  death."    The
chances are that rich  deposits  of  precious
metals will be discovered   in  our own   Province the present year, and our miners would
do better  to   "choose  the  evils that  they
have, than fly to others tliat they know not
of." 	
Me. WiNTEHCTE'sticiLDiNG. —The foundations for this colossal structure are being
placed in position, and all the timbers for
the framework are on the ground. The surrounding brush and fallen timber have been
burned away and things are nearly in readiness for tbe framing of the building. Its
dimensions will be as follows: Size of building tii) by 132; height in front 60 feet, and in
the rear 4*2 feet; containing four stories.
The building faces on (.rant street, and ou
the ground floor will be four large stores,
20x40 with a 13-foot ceiling. A large room
on the same floor is designed to be used as
a reading room, and Mr. Wintemute offers
liberal inducements to any person or associ-
E ion of men who will eitablish such sn institution. There will be two hallwayB on
the lower floor with commodious stairways
leading to a large public hall on the second
floor. This hall will be 40x60, 15-foot ceiling, will be lathed and plastered and will
aUo contain what is known as a ventilating
cornice, and will cover the space of two
stores on the ground floor. Over the other
two stores will be another hall, nearly similar to th,: one described above. The third
story will bu fitted up for offices, and the
founh floor will contain residence apartments. Around the entire builuing will
run three balconies, connected with eae.'i
other by stuirways and communicating w ith
the courtyard beneath; thus offering ever}
facility for an escape in ease of lire. The
roof—.-.hich will be of the Tandy known in
carpentery as 'hipped'—will be covered with
extra heavy shingles, tire-proof painteil, and
•Ended. The building will contain 7,000
lineal feet of square timber, equal to 70,000
f *ct board measure; 1,30,000 feet of lumber,
and about 70,000 shingles. Mr. Wintemute
expects to have a portion of the building
ready Tor occupancy by tbe month of
August.	
THE LOST SHIP.
In the year 1861, a passenger on board
the bark Luulau Kilham, 900 tons burden,
Captain White, sailed horn Cuba, West Indies, bound for Valparaiso, Chill. The following incident which occurred during tbe
trip, may in aome minner account for the
common occurrence of a ship leaving port,
never lo be heard afterward: -ifter throe
months of u dull, monotonous life at sea—
occasionally enlivened by fishing for the bo*
n-tis aud baricutas, sometimeseucouiiteiing
a school of porpoises, or catching a glimpM
of a spouting whale, yet at the best but au
uninteresting existence—a horrible catastrophe took place, which left a lasting im
pres.-tion on the mind of.the narrator. It
WEI in the month of March, and the baik
was about three hundred miles off the Rio de
la Plata, in the region of the pomperos. The
pomperos as is well known, are winds which
blow with great violence down the river
Plata;and, although tlie Louisa Kilham was
sn far distant from land, sparrows, butterflies and au insict knn.ni as the devil's
needle wet c actually blown upon the deck
of the wswl, Hut to continue. On the 8th
oi the month I arose from my hunk early,
and, having partaken heaitily of the ship's
fare, went on deck to see what the weather
was like. It was a lovely day. the sun
shone iu all its glory; all trails set, even to
the stay-sails and under a bracing breeze we
n.ust have been making nine knots ail hour.
I used to amuse mvselt hy studying navi
tuition, and was also taking meteorological
reports for the observatory at Washington.
Kfich day at 9! 1- End 4 1 would note how
the ban.in'1 er stood, ohrouiclinK the same in
a book. When nine bull fetru.lt I proceeded us UMial to the iu'trument room, and,
looking at the bar meter, was greatly .is
totiished at the depression of the mercury.
I turned to printed logs of many vessels
which had passed-through that region, but
could discover noue which recorded so low
as our own then denoted. Though no sailor,
1 concluded that it was advisable "to look
out tor squalls," and instantly proceeded to
acquaint t'aptian White with thu phenomenon. Ou he* ing ni) statement, theCaptatn
in nautical terms accused me of prevaricating; "or else," he said, "someone has been
fooling with the   instrument."
"Come down below and see, Cap," I replied, and agreeing to the proposition we
descended together, where he found on examination exactly what I had stated. In
htiintly the old salt became alert. Rushing
on deck, he scanned the horizon from every
pointou the compass. Nothing was to be
seen; not a cloud obscured the blue vault of
heaven. A puzzled expression flitted over
his countenance for a moment; theii he
turned and said: "Well, I've sailed the
the ocean for forty years as captain, and by
going by tbat 'er instrument, never lost a
rope-yarn yet: and by old Neptune and little
fish hooks, I wont go back on 'ernow." All
hands were at once called on deck, and the
command went out, "Close reef the top
and mainsails." The sailors, regarding their
master in astonishment, obeyed the order,
remarking that the old man was a little at
sea in the maintop." Of course it took a
good deal longer to fulfil the order than to
write it, and when the Cantata, half an hour
later, scanned the ocean, he noticed a large
clipper ship, with every sail set, looming up
in the horizon about eight miles distant. It
rapidly appeared tn our wake", End the Captain, as he looked through his glass, exclaimed-    "Those  lubbers   either    haven't
lo -ked at their barometer, or,  by , they
haven't got one."
Time new on, yet there were  no indicat
stamping his foot, exclaimed: "I'
shan't be passed like an old sugar drover ou
the high s<-aa." (The bark was laden with
suL-ar.) Immediately be ordered the sail*., i
aloft to shake reefs out of the sails, Bwsm
was no sooner complied with, aud the men
had hardly descended, when, as if hy magic,
the bark was struck by a frightful gust of
wind. Taken by surprise for a moment, the
Captain alm/«et instantly recovered hi* presence of mind and in a voice of thunder
roaied: "Man tbe main brace. 'Boot
•hip!" which, as we were under short sail,
and all hands on de- k was iuunedlaUly accomplished with success. 'I hen took place
the catastrophe which in an instant consigned numbers to a watery grave. Tbe large
clipper ship, which hod but a mom-nt before proudly plowed the ocean under every
•ititch of canvas, ciuj:bt unawares by the
squall, sank sU-rn fust, never to rise again.
Tne s*a, from calm, placid wster, became in
an instant seething, r-ariug waves, as if
impregnated by a thousand demons, pre
vt-Muu' any rescue of tbe uufortunite strangers. It was an swful, aw s inspiring sight,
never to be forgotten. Who they were we
never knew. The gale lasted for three day*,

The case of I'rlnce Krapotkin, who is
undergoing imprisonment at C'lairvaux
in pursuance of the sentence pronounced against him at the Lyons MriSM tor
complicity in revolutionary action, is
again attracting public attention. A
member of the staff of the Paris Figaro
gives an account of a recent visit to the
prison at Clairvaux. The Prince is permitted to pursue hit scientiliee labors,
to read the newspapers, and to have his
meals sr ved from the Clairvaiix inn.
But the misfortune isth t his condition
of health, which was bud w hen his imprisonment began, haB become so rimch
aggravated by his confinement at C'lairvaux, the situation of which is particularly damp, that lie is unable to avail
hiuiBelf of the privileges afforded him
Although but 42 vearsofage, he is described as having the appearance of an
old man, and the doctors sav that nothing but a southern mm can prolong Ins
life. Under these circumstances the
hope is expressed thut the French Government may bt prevailed upon to permit bis removal to some place of confinement in a more favorable climate.
His wife, who is nn accomplished w „inin
of thirty, iB a constant visitor at the
prison, and is almost heartbroken at
witnessing her husband approaching
the grave day by day in consequence ol
his exposure to conditions from which
she has no power to remove him.

He entered the amy us a cornet in tin;

to the Tenth Hussats iu 1852, passed in

where he remained until 1856, when he
j.iined the Tenth Hussars us C'ptain
and became Lieut.-Colonel ot that Regiment, in which the Prince of Wales wus
placed under him for military education. He went thence to lie Assistant
Quartermaster-General at Altlershot, a
position he held until, in 1875, the painful circumstance occurred which compelled his retirement. He isofuiupies-
iiuiii-,1 gallantry, served in the Kaffir
war of 1852-ou, ami in the Crimean war,
at the siege of Sebustopol. He was present at the desperate battle Of the Tchei-
nava, and led one of the storming parties in the filial assault on the fortress.
He wears a medal for the Kaffir war,
and the Crimean clasp, and the Turkish
war medal for his more recent services
He is very popular in the army, being
a good specimen of tho Phil Shuridau

The writer of a paper recently read In -
fore the French Academy of Medicine
expresses the opinion tbat one in every
5,000 persons is buried alive, while official statistics show that the mortality
among sailors from shipwreck aveiages
ono in 4.000. The question has of late
been much discussed by It.e met] cal
body just mentioned ; and it seems to
b« settled that none of tho accepted indications of death, with the single ex
ception of the unmistakable decomposition of the body, are to ie regrirderi as
perfectly conclusive. It is certain that
the possibility of such a death weighs
on the mind of many of the French, us,

President of the Chamber of Notaries,

The heat in New South WiiIcb in December is reported to have exceeded anything
known for the last quarter of a century. Not
mly were stuck dying in all directions fi-o.n
the effects of tile intense heat and the consequent drought, but llie very birds of the
air were dr -pping dead from the leafless
branches of the trees. At Bourke the thermometer on .Ian. ti registered 120' Fnhr. in
the shade, and in some places a temperature
as high as 120' waa recorded. Bunli fires
were frequent, and the air was laden with
smoke, alternating with dense clouds of dust.

of sketches offered for his inspection by tho
President," Very pretty, very pretty indeed," he commented. This is evidently for
the navy, and tliia for the army. But, if
you please, what ia thin for—this one com-

An old friend of Archbishop Whateley,
who waB with him at Oxford, went, after
many years'absenee, to visit him at the palace, in Dublin. On entering the grounds he
spied an old man digging, despite a pitiless
storm of sleet. "I shall venture to rebuke
tiie Archbishop for this," said the visitor to
himself; "he should show more consideration
for hit* servants." Presently, on going into
the house, he found the decrepit old digger
waa the Archbishop himself.
