The Canad an elections had been
completed during my absence from
Queliec, and L ml Elgin opened the
ne* Parliam mt a f»w days after my
return. I found that 1 arrived juat in
time for another political crisis, as the
elections bad resulted unfavorably for
the Cover, .me ut. The two great
questions whiuh it was Lord Elgin's
grest ambiti n to settle before closing
his term of office were the abolition o
S'-igiieurial Tenure and the Secularisation of the Clergy R-serves, which, in
his speech from tire Throne; fir recommended to the at ention of the House.
To the settlement of both these questions in the popular ense, the Oppo
sitiou or Tory party, had lieen vig
orously opposed When, therefore,
the Govern ment wai beaten on the
election of the Speaker, the fate of
these measures seemed somewhat critical. I was peculiarly fortunately situ
nted for watching the progress of the
parliamentary pr .ceediugs, and the
crisis resulting therefrom liy virtue
of my oliice, I had a seat ou the Boor
of the House, without, however, the
right of voting or of speaking, except
to offer explanations in the event of
any questions alfo.cting the Indians
coming up. I was thus present at all
the delta-us, and on excellent terms
with the leaders of both parliamentary
parties. In fact I had practically all
the fun of being a member of the
House without any of the responsi
bilities, and after the vote on. the
Speaker was taken, had sundry confidential meetings in the small hours of
the morning with the prominent men
on both sides, tbe result of which was,
that I could not resist in my excitement M-akitt. the Governor General up
at 5 a.m. to inform liim ofthe defeat of
the Government,and what I had learned
since. The day following the Prime
Minister placed his resignation in his
Excellency's hands; and to the great
astonishment of the public, as well as
to hisnwn. Sir Allan M'Nab, who had
been one of his bitterest opponents
ever since the Montreal events, was
sent for to form a new Ministry—Lord
Elgin hy this act satisfactorily dis
proving the charge of having eithfr
personal or poi tical partialities in the
selection of his Ministers. After som-
little delay, Sir Allen succeeded in
forming a Coalition Ministry, whicli
adopted the address of their prede
cessors in loto, and thus committed
themselves to passing the two im
portant measures alluded to in it, in
exactly the same sense as their op
ponents intended to do—a sense
whicli they had always resisted. Meantime the Reciprocity Treaty also
passed unanimously, and theGovernor-
Gemertl went down in state to give it
thn royal assent
Wn immediately afterwards started
on a tour through Upper ('aunili-, which
a as a triumphal progress throughout —
the people, many of whom until latelv
had beeu his Excellency's bit erest op
ponents, turning out en masse to do him
honor; while at sundry binquets, and
on other numerous occasions, when he
was called upon to speak, he explained
to the people the advantages, f the
treaty he had secur d for them, in
fact, a reaction of popularity had set
in;and the defeat of the previous administration, which at first seemed an
untoward circumstauceto have occurred
so near the close of his government.
proved the most fortunate event for
Lord Elgin's own reputation, for it
gave un .nswerahltt evidence to the con
stitutionality of his conduct, which
had always h-en impugned. I cannot
do better than quote his own words
_n this sub ect: —
"1 have brought into office the gentlemen who made theinselvet for years
most conspicuous and obnoxious for
personal hostility to myself, thus giving
the most complete nega.ive to the
al egation that I am swayed by personal motives in the selection of my
advisers: nnd these gentlemen have
accepted office on the understanding
that they will carry out in all particu
ulars the policy which I sketched om
while my former administration was
in office, thus proving that the policy
in question is the only one suited to
the country —tho only one which an
administration can adopt. I do not
see how the blindest can fail to draw
this inference from these facts. The
first thing which my new Administration have had to do is to adopt and
carry through the House the address
responsive to my speech from the
Throne. This is, certainly for me, and
I hope for the country, the most fortunate wind up of my connection with
Canada which could have been
It was indeed a fortuutte wind up,
and we determined to celebrate it as
such For the last ihro-' months of
our residence at Quebec we lived in a
perfect whirl of gaiety. Bai s, dinner
and garden parties and picnics were
the order of the day. Society took the
cue from Governiueut House, and I
found, under the temptation of more
congenial results, my parliamentary
attendance getting slack. The delights
of a Canadian wimer, with its sleighing k
Edmund Head, Lord Elgin's successor,

with whom I had formed ties of
wanner friendship than is usual after
so short a residence, we stretched
ourselves at the bottom of the bark
canoes in which we were to be ferried
across the broad l-osom of the river, at
this time encumbered with huge ice
floes »nd enshrowded in a dense fog
The trsjeet is not without danger, and \
exciting in proportion. Our muscular
boatmen paddle u. rapidly across the
narrow lanes of swift open water, haul
us up on the rag.ed floes, and running
on the ice by the side of the cano s,
rush us rapidly across them to plunge
us in the river sgain on ihe other side,
until, after ninr - than an hours battling
with the ice we find ourselves safely

the jury don't like him, or you, or any

There appears to In* a lull in Euro
pe»n aU'aii-a just so* ; the telegraphic
despatches give no indication of immediate action anywhere. But it is. we
think, the calm that immediately precedes the storm. Prince Alexander of
Bulgaria is now safe at limn,- with hit
friends ul Darmstadt, ami tbe excuse
persistently put forward by the Czsr
for interfere nee in the affair* of Bulgaria, has been removed. Tin- abdication of Alexander, which hsti lieen
prompted, no doubt, by llUmurck and
hit allies, has not been i-ll'.-. t.-J with
any hope that Hussia will for a urn
ment eeose lier intrigues iu the Balkan
peninsula, but with a view to learn the
next move on tin* part of tin Otai The
great object of the player* 111 tin. great
gamo is to fix upon 001111- one, the onus
for disturbing the peace of tbe world.
It is thit great rettraining cause
which has prevented Russia from making the plungo into war, which discontent throughout the whole of her dominions renders absolutely necessary.
What her next move will be it being
watched for with the most iniense
anxiety by every power in Europe.
There can be no doubt ni-out her
policy. A war in any part of the world
but Mm one desired by every Russian—
the attempted capture of the Ottoman
capital, would have no interest for tbe
Muscovites. The land which they conceive is flowing with milk and honey,
is Turkey. If the Czar would order
the troops to Constantinople, tho entire Russian people would cease from
complaining and would submit to any
deprivation or sacrifice to aid him in
this great undertaking, wliich they
think will herald the tnillrtniuin. It is
needless to say that this cannot be;
Russia will never be permitted to take
Constantinople, and, although fearful
sacrifices may have to bo made to prevent it, they will be made without a
murmur. The mere defeat of the Russian armies in this gigantic enterprise
will not be sufficient for Europe, the
great Northern Empire must be split
up aud rendered incapable of disturbing the general peace for a long time to
come. Thero is every reason to think
that the Czar has become quite reckless,
afraid to move about iu his own dominions, his life has become a burden to
him, and he probably feels quite, careless as to the result. If lie were successful he would lie idolized at home and
his family would be secured on the
throne for many years to come. If be
fails he loses his life and his throne.
All this is clear not only to himself but
to all the world, so our readers may
judge of the terrible game which he is
about to play and the desperate efforts
|)0 will make to win. Notwithstanding the pretended indifference of Germany to the movements in the Balkans
she will be compelled to aid Austria if
that power calls upon her. Of course,
Bismarck will only be appealed to in
great extremity, but be will respond
without a moment's hesitation. Wiih
tbo enormous army at the command of
Russia it is highly probable that while
an army is being hurried through Bulgaria, a second will attack Armenia, in
order, if possible, to divert the forces
of the allies, and, if possible, weaken
them in their defence of Constantinople.
Thit, however, it so clearly th« probable course uf the Russians, thnt it is, no
doubt, calculated upon and will be provided againat. It it in Armenia where
the aid of England will be looked for
by Turkey and no doubt it will be
forthcoming. A very powerful Eng-
lith army can be landed in Syria within
a few weeks, and wn doubt whether
Englishmen would find anywhere, a
battle field more congenial to their
tastes. It it true that nominally they
will be fighting for the 'unspeakable
Turk " bat in reality they will be fight
ing for the glory and expansion of the
British Empire, for we doubt very
much the British troops ever being recalled until the Turkish Empire, or
what ramaint of it, is divided. The
Austrians, Italians, Bulgarians, Servians, Roumanians, Greeks, and British,
will all bn at the feast, and we suspect
the British Lion will not put up with
the smallest slice. Germany, if sbe
lends a nand, will probably be .utisfied
with Poland and German Austria, and
perhaps soino of the Russian possessions in the Baltic. We should prefer
seeing her taking such morsels in preference to any more French provincos.
In fact she might be permitted to hplp
herself to any extent on Russian territory if sho would only consent to make
the Rhine the boundary of France.
One thing is certain if France enters
the melee and is defeated, the republican Government is doomed.
Our  citizens have   been bamboozled
and  imposed upon by a set of small-
minded creatures uuder the leadership
of John Robson,who have managed, by
dangling a toy  before tbeir  eyes,   to
grossly imposed upon them.    The city
branch,  which they arc likely to have
to pay  an awful price for,   was really
intended  to divert  them   while tbeir
birthright was being taken from tbem
Now,   when the  principal   motive for
their   betrayal — the   fostering   and
building  up Vancouver—is beginning
to fade  Into the dittanre,  these tame
persons  hsve  induced   the C.   P.   R.
Company to dofer the operation of our
branch indefinitely, lett the establish
ment of thit city at a depot, should rob
"Vancouver"   of the prettigc   which
booming  and world-wide   advertiting
was  supposed to have secured for it.
The fact is that this city hat a future
before it of much greater importance
than can ever be secured fur Vaucou
ver, even under the mott favorable cir
cumttances, but it requiret  union and
some little common sense amongst our
citizens, to prevent the destruction of
our prospects for a long time to come.
The deepening  of the channel  at the
mouth of the river will enable vessels
of large tonnage to come  up to this
city and the  transfer  of their freight
and passengers immediately to the railway,   will very materially reduce  the
cost of transit, compared with any possible arrangements at Vancouver. With
splendid safe harbor, a considerable
saving would  be effected in wear and
tear of railway rolling  stock and permanent way.     Wo are always twitted
with the presence of ice in the river
during occasional  winters, but it mutt
be borne in mind that if tlie presence of
steamers here was continual and their
arrival   and   departure frequent,   the
formation   ef  ice in the harbor would,
except  in the caso of rare seasons, be
prevented,  and even during the most
severe  weather  the possible interrup -
tion   would   be insignificant.    With a
well marked channel through the sand-
heads all reason for a port al Vancouver would disappear.    If Port Moody,
as persons connected with tho 0. P. R.
bavp  stated,   is inadequate for the accommodation  of  the   immense  traffic
which they anticipate for their railway
they would have no longer, any reason
to complain when the limitless accommodation to be obtained in this city, is
placed at their  disposal, by tbe branch
now nearly completed to our wharves.
The C.  P.   R.  Company may in their
greed, desire te pass us by, but this we
can prevent;   first by  arresting  any
continuation of this branch to Vaucou
ver, and  next, by united action in securing the  landing  and  shipment of
freight here.    Our readers may rcmem
ber that one item of  the assets offered
by the 0. P. R.  Company in payment
ofthe money obtained from the Dominion  Government,   on   loan,   was  the
twenty years privilege of excluding the
construction   of   competing   railways,
moro  particularly in  the direction of
the forty ninth parallel of north latitude.   This part of the agreement remains for ratification by Parliament,
but it ia quite likely with  the present
Government majority,  that it will lie
carried.    If that takot place, the Fraser
river railway will be constructed and n
very great traffic will follow the opening of that line.    All that traffic will
come to this eity, and, at this railway
will render steamers to thit Province,
from San  Frani.isoo, almutt unnecessary, New  Westminster   will   bn   the
great centra for business and popula
tion, in British Oolnrobia    Our read
era will tee at t glance how  very ab-
turd it would be to attempt to make a
town or a harbor at Vancouver; if it
were not next to impossible to inako
anything at that place, more than it is
at present, a nest of liquor saloons and
small dealers in half-price goods from
Eastern Canada, whioh may be sold at
any time for all they will realize above
freight  and   wharfage.     It  will be a
sort of peddler's market; and as it is
never likely to be connected by  rail
with the C. P. R.,  we shall derive all
the  little advantage  to  be   obtained
from its existence, since the goods will
be sent here by our branch for shipment   by steamer to  Vancouver.    Tt
will, in time, bo a refuge for the destitute, and occasional fires will do good.

that it ia one of the best and safeit harbors

further was wauled to confirm theae impressions, it was found iu the Uct that the Dominion Government at one time held all the
uno.jLUpied lands within tht railway belt,
which extended westward from Port M -ody
to Knglish Bay and which they aubaoqueot-

as these no blame can -be attached to tbe
jii'ipeity-holders if thuy defend their rights
hy every legitimate means tu prevent the re*
uip>.al of the terminus, even though avaricious speculators at Vancouver suffer by their
acts. There is also another feature in the
affair which we must mention. These people paid full value for their properties, yet
tho Syndicate, by wiy ol compensation, oner
them & (and in many caaes even lees) the
value ol tbe original cost—thus adding in-
•>ult to injury—and because they refused to
make the sacrifice they are denounced oa obstruction sts. The course they have pursued
is jiii.tili.ible which cv-n onr cotem the
Herald, with its flourish of trumpets, must
admit* Let ua now briefly examine the matter which led the Syndicate into their pres-
i!*it dilemma, aud see it the course tbey nave
■iiiriued is blameless. Our reckless Provincial Government made an offer to the Rail-
WHy Company in the shape of a donceurol
d.OOl) acres of laud (which tliey held iu trust
for the people, and unhesitatingly gave away
without the people's consent), if said Coin-
puny w<>uld extend their line from the present terminus to English Bay, where some of
the members of tbe Government had already
tattoo up land—a -dimly transaction—but
nevenhelesr. accepted by the .Syndicate. An
agreemeut wan drawn up and signed by the
• uvei'iutiiMit on thu one part and three railway oftiic.ils on the other, but whether in
their own personal interest or on behalf of
tho Company (whoever they may be) we
cannot Hay. Co tain it is they apparently
iletdrcd to carry out the compact, as they
gave out contracts for it constructions, but
•trauga as it may appear theso smart business men, whom wu have been taught to
l.iok up. >u as perfect steel-traps at a bargain,
had omitted iu their agreement one nf the
most important clause.* — tbe right of way
—and what i* still more surprising, which
wo Mib*u.i*u*:iitly find out through the
"Court*" tliat tbeir charter witb the dominion gave them no power to extend the
line, nay actually prohibited them from
doing n. Viewed as a business transaction
it must ite looked upon as a series of blunders and if they are acting on behalf of the
Canadian Pacific Hailway C-mpany we are
curious to know what the shareholders will
chink nl ihe whole proceeding.

Leonard Bra*., Irom Port Haney, British Columbia. The first lot arrived iu good condition but the other two lots were more or lett
the worse for their long ride. Thii difficulty
Mr. Leonard believe* can be got over by a
better system of (tacking. If the salmon
from the Pacilic wen' packed as those that
'■i-< f ,n ttew Brunswick, they
voull, be li lores, keep well. It
Islun aboul tii dayt to bring them
by exfo-cts htre from Port Moody.
The high rate of express charge*, eleven
cents a pound, is a much more formidable
obstacle in tbe way of establishing the
salmon trade. The rate, considering the
distance, is, at express rates go, uot regarded a* disproportionately high, but too
high to make the butlneti pay. If tne
Dominion Express Company cannot afford to
carry the fish at a low rate tbere ia very
little more to be laid. It ia unfortunate
if the people of the eaat will have to do
without fresh ttlmon from the Pacific coaat.
But it is by no meant certain that eleven
cents a pound is the lowest paying rate. The
Messrs. Leonard have reason to believe that
both the Canadian Pacific Company and the
Expreta Company will do all that they oan
toenconrage the" trade, and tbey have good
reason to expect that Britiih Columbit

Pacific Ocean, whose names cover a thou-
aand timet more space on the mapa tnau
they themselves occupy, are, many of thun,
large islands, aa big as the biggest, fairer
thau the fairest, of the ialtnda that turround
onr owu coasts from the Shetland! to the
lalo of Wight; possessing harbours of great
value; and yielding rich produce of great
variety in abuudauce. Still, regarding them
only from a material aud commercial point
of view, aod taking them at their beat, the
vast majority of theae scattered groups of
islands are not of such great Importance that
we need, it a nation, begrudge their colonisation by any other Power. There ia,
however, toother atpect of the question
which presents itself perhaps more forcibly
to the interested onlookers at this game of
cheas than to one, at least, of the players.
These iiltudi are to the Australian Colonies
what Orknoy aud Shetland, the Hebrides,
and the Channel Islands are to Eugland i
indeed they may be likened with equal
juhtico to Oibraltar, Malta, and Adeu:
for not only do they form possible points d'-
appui for the descent of a hostile force ou
the shores of Australia and New Zealand,
but they arc important linkt in the chaiu of
communicatiou between thote countries and
the rest of the Empire. If England has n..t
fully appreciated this aspect of the question
tho Australian Colonies have, and it is more
thun likely that France if not Germany is
influenced by considerations tuch at these
as much at by a desire to find outlets there
for their trade.
Then there is the important question of
the utilization of some of theae islands - by
Fi.iii. .- at any rate—aa freih New Cale-
doniant; at fresh centres for the ditpertal
over the South Pacific, and particularly
over the Auttrtlian Colonies, of tho dregs of
the French criminal classes. With this
further possibility staring them in the face,
is it at all remarkablo that Australia and
New Zealand should oppose mott vigor-
Truly the prospect of foreign —and particularly of French—settlement in the larger
group of islands* Thuy, at least, are determined that the "stale-mate" method of
play shall be adandoned for one of greater
vigour on the part of England and ono more
likely to result in victory. If, indeed, the
English Colonial and Foreign Office* do not
bestir themselves in the matter, it is more
than probable thnt teriout complications
may eniuo from the impatience of the Colonists, whose resolution haa jutt found ttrong
expression in the tpeech of the Prime
Minister and of thu leader of the Opposition
of Victoria in tho Legislative Assembly of
that Colony. The continued occupation of
the New Hebrides by Prance, iu defiance of
r.-peated assurances of its intention to evacuate the islands has so exaap-rated the whole
population of the Colonies that Mr. Gillies
lias formtlly declared that the only satis
factory solution of the deadlock wil! be to
fix a date for the departure of the French
troops, and, proceeding to refer to the convict question, he added that if tbe transportation of French criminals were not discontinued the Colonies would units to protect themselves.
The necessity for an equally firm attitude
on the part of the English Government it
shown by the c-unmenu of the Preach preu
on the annectiou of the Kllice Itlandt. This
set may in Itself lie regarded a* evid, ncc of
a determination on the part of Eugland to
attnd by the Colonies; but, on the other
han.I, it is seized upon by the French press
aa an excuse for France s failure to carry
out its undertaking in regard to the New
Hebrides Ths l.i'ierte, for example, sayt
that the .nu,. sum ofthe Elliee group will fa
cillate the solution of theNew Hebrides quei-
tion, lor "the English Cabinet csuuot object
to our follow ing its example," and It ts<
presses tht opinion that '*tbe English will
not willingly acquiesce in th* French occupation of the New Hebrides, but that in the
end they will ncvertheleat recognise th* tc-
compiuhtd fact, aa they did with Tahiti."
There it, however, no parallel between the
two case*. The action of Prance haa been
taken iu defiance of solemn treaty engage
mentt, ratified over tnd over again, whereat
there was no obstacle what* ver to the an.
notation of the blbce group by England.
I'he acquisition ol this group by England
i* a recognition at the aame time ot the
menace which the French occupation of the
New Hebrides off ra to Australian interests,
and of the importance of securing the line
of communication between England and
Australia I'i.i the Canadian Pacific Railway.
It it satisfactory to find that definite steps
are being tak»n jointly by Australia and
Canada to construct what has ao often been
urged in those Colonic*—viz., a submarine
cable between Canada and Australia via Figi.
Thegreat arsenals of British Colombia will, in
future, be practically the North-Eastern
outposts of tbe Australian Colonies, and a
great mittake will be committed if the
Elliee Islands, which promise to hold an
important strategical position, are not included in the route of the new cable. If
Prance persists in her determination to
adopt the MacMahon motto,/y suis,fy rest,.
in regard to tbe New Hebrides, she may expect that, though England and Australia
may not think the poaition worth fighting
for at the present moment, her posses-ion of
the gmup will not remain long unchallenged
after the event of war occuring on any
other pretext.
In tbe meantime,   the  dispute   between
England, Germany, and America, in regard
to Samoa, though its solution is fnll of im
portant coniequencea to Englith and   Australian   interests,   doe*  not   present   such
vital  issue* a* tbe   question of   the   New
Hebrides.    The S*mo*n Ialand* are further
removed from tbe centres of colonial life, and
their strategical importance in the hands of
another Power it to oome extent neutralised
bv their mosranfaioal relation to Fiii.    Still.

Bordeaux haa been in atato of excltomont
about tbe trial before the Assise Court
there of a Dominican named Pierre Brochard,
a doctor in Theology, and a remarkably fine*
looking man of 36* with a long brown board
of exceptional luxuriance. Tne indictment
•tete forth that on tho 31«t of March last a
mulwfactor entered the Dominican monastery
at Lille, and with the aid of false keys sue*
ceedod in opening tbo safe io which money,
Stock Exchange securities, and other property wero kept. He carried off twelve de*
bentures of Austrian Rente worth 30,000
franca, and upward of 9,000 francs in bank
notes and gold. This robbery must have
been committed by a person familiar with
the monastery, as no window was broken,
nor waa any noise hoard by any one belonging to the house. Pierre Brochard, it was
further aet forth, loft the building on the eve
of the rot>bery, and on the 13th of May assumed tbe name of Uerthier, went to the
office of M. Molina, a money ohangur of Bordeaux, and sought to got Heveral Austrian
debentures cashed.
As notice had been received by tho money
■■hangers of Bordeaux not to pay the stolen
bonds, M. Molina, finding the mimbert. were
tbe aame as those on the Fist sent by the Dominican* of Lille, caused Pierre Brochard to
be arrested. The monk, on being interrogated, owned that he had been enabled by
false keys, which a Lille locksmith manufactured for him on tho model of tlie real ones,
to open the iron safe of the order. He committed the robbery tho night after he left
the monastery, when all thu inmates were in
bed, simply by unlocking every door that
came in his way. On quitting Lille he de
cidod to renounce an <yclesiasttc>l life. He
simulated suicide by leaving the monastic
suit on tho banks of«. . Ivor, where they were
found. He swain to the other side, and, as
he had prepared the brotherhood for suicide,
thoy concluded, when his frock und underclothing wore found, that ho had drowned
himself. Then under the name of Berth ior
hu proceeded to Bordeaux, and told everv
one he met abont tho suicide of the monk
Brochard, ao that be was never snsoocted of
the robbery, and wonld not havo been detected bat for tho monoy ohanger noticing
tho numbers of the AuHtrian.dobcuturra.
Nothing could be more fall than the avow*
al. On tne Judge asking whether he had
anything to add in extenuation of his offence,
he said tbat be bad a grave malady which
science was powerless to cure, and that owing to its effects on hi* brain he was unable
to preach. It was under the influence of
thie derangement tbat he planned and executed the robbery which, bo owned, he went
abont in a oool Mid cautions manner that
scorned incompatible with the mental state
he described, His crime was abominable,
and hia repentance waa deep and bitter. A
Dominican brother was called by Brochardfe
counsel aa a witneas of the circumstances of
the robbery. He knew nothing beyond what
had been confessed, but he informed the jury
that according to the civil law there had
been no robbery, all things being in common
in a monastery. Brochard had perhaps
taken more than his share, and prematurely,
out of a fond of which he waa a co-proprietor, for under the decree for the expulsion of
the religious orders this money was divided
equally among tho brethren, wbo wore to be
regarded as a religious family. The presiding Judge indignantly protested against this
theoryi out it went home to rhe jurors, who
returned a unanimous verdict of acquittal.

Now, should Priuqe Alexander persevere
in this edifying attitude of forgiveness and
long suffering, while on the other hand the
Rusmau emissaries keep ou fomenting plots
which may easily pass from attempts upon
his liberty to attempts upon his life, it would
for him bo foolhardy to try to retaiu his

from tbe Czar's letter that aM hope of conciliating his enemy is over, bo will pursue a
sterner and more vindictive course, perceiving that his alternative is voluntary abdication. But any one who reads between
tho lines of the Russiau autocrat's rude
missive can see that the execution of Zankoff
or any of tho Bulgarian conspirators would
probably be followed by tbe immediatt. despatch of a Russian army corps across the
Danube. From whatever point of view, accordingly, we survey the situation, it seems
evident that owing to the collapse of tho
plan to depose Alexander, Bulgarian affairs
nave been thrown into a snarl which only
war can dissentangle. —X. Y.Sun.
At the meeting on August 14 of the British Medical Association at Brighton, Mr.
Victor Horsley. r.K.S , Surgeou to the
National Hospital for thu Paralyzed and
Epileptic, exhibited three patients treated
in that hospital, whose recovery may be
said to mark the common cement of a new
era in surgery. Tbey are men who have
been suffering from sevore epileptic Hts, and
in whom Mr. Horsley haa opened tho skull
and ba* removed diseased structure or new
growth from the brain itself.
In tbe most recent of theso three the
operation was performed on the 13th of
July, ao tbat a complete month haa siuce
elapHed; and the patient was sufficiently
well to take the journey to Brighton. The
other two cases were operated upon, one a
week or two ago and the other several weeks
earlier; and in nono of the three has there
been any symptom to interfere with the
prompt and complete recovery. So far, also,
the men are cured of their epilepsy; but a
considerable time must be permitted to
elaspo before any claim for permanence of
result can be established. What is actually
proved at present is that it boa become
possible, by the observation of symptoms,
not only to determine the fact of the existence of some morbid growth within the
skull, but also to determine it* precise position with such accuracy that it can be cut
down upon aud removed. It has also proved
that oooKiderable portions of brain may be
removed without inqury, the functions to
which theso portions aro aubsorvient being
performed, after a while by corresponding
parts of the opposite homispbere.
In two of Mr. Hursley'* patients there
had been injuries, And one of them Imd been
previously trephined for the purpose of elevating portions of bone which were depressed
by fracture of his skull; so that iu both of
these localisation waa assisted by manifest
external indications; but in the third there
waa nothing of that kind, and the poiut at
which the skull should be opened was determined solely by the fact that the fits ooni-
mencoi in a particular group of muscles—
thoae, namely, which act upon the left
thumb. The physician in charge of the
case waa able to say tbat this manner of
commencement pointed certainly to the
presence of a continuing source of Irritation
near th* surface of tha brain at a definite
spot; and, the surgeou having opened the
skull at th* point indicated, a tumor was
found imbedded in the brain substance, aud,
t-gether with a portion of brain surrounding

fiation, not to say that they placed his life

We have hero, then, as "F.R.S." pointed
out tn relation to tho former case, an illustration of the value and usefulness of experimentation on living animals. Dr. Hitzig
and Dr* Ferrier commenced to experiment
upon living animals by applying the stimulation of weak galvanic currents to different
portions of tbe brain, that the offices of these
portions became known, and then it waa
found that tbe brain surface is largely made
up of what are tecbically eal ed motor
areas—that is to say, of regions which excite movements, each in its especial part of
the body. Localisation is aa yet only in its
infancy,but even now a skilful experimenter,
by stimulating in succession different parts
of the brain, can oause a narcotized and
therefore unconscious animal to perform a
considerable variety of actions with perfect
precision; and it has been found,for example,
that a portion of the brain surface which
the phrenologist asserted to be the seat ot
ideality, or acquisitiveness, or some such
rubbish, is in reality the exciting centre of
tho movements of tho left thumb. It was
the application of this peculiar piece of
knowledge which enabled the medical staff
of the National Hospital to ooint out the

which promises to bring about a groat improvement in-or lather t * supersede— the
old fashioned cog-wheel-.. In lieu of the
cogs, tho wheels are surrounded witb an endless zigsag " web," which it is said will reduce friction and noise, and increase the
strength of .the machinery. The only drawback which occurs is th»t tbe wheels must
bo fitted in pairs, tbe projecting " web" of
one wheel fitting into corresponding iudeu
