But never a sound replied, for the
plsce was is tenantleas as the fields
oursidr. Fulchrr and all bis broud of
cbildien might be there tbe vary next
d«v, but on that night limy were taking
their heavy slumbers at the farther end
f the village The seconds of vatting
were few. but they lagged like hours.
Then the truth flashed up in him: "Kmp-
tv I" and alone, hurrying, trembling fr urn
hi ad to foot, be mad- hi> way back in
the stream and, kiiee-ilee|i in water,
waded on from willow to willow, holding on to the slender branches, peering
into tlie deep pools, calling a^nud, ' Bo.!
Hugh! answer me; for pity's Sake,
tpaikl"
On through the mud and rushes till
he ii'-iucd the mill—prist there it would
Ire vain to search—groping vainly from
p ml to post, the clear, tender moonlight
lending its help in every nook ami
cranny; hut all in vain. Once more
St. Margaret's chime, rang ut, and nt
every »tr ke Faucis Br rei-ford's hear-
lost hope; he knew now that in t"Uie
deep .pot laid the child he should have
u'uiiirli tl: lie knew that Kingsbro ke
wa. verily his. lilt that he and peace
hud parted company lor everl
Slo'ly lie dragged himself up the
'•in k numb and despairing
Into tbe oak plantation, close hy, he
plunged, terrifying with steps iinusu I
a multitude of four-footed creatures,
wiio, on fun or food intent, were abroad
.his I vely night. Nut till he reached a
keeper'- hut, did be once stop to rest
nd think.
To think! How dared he to think
when every thought was torment, every
moment recalled filled him with horror
every moment to come would but cover
him with dishonor! Smuggling like
some wretched, captured beast in a
snare even so heat his dist<acted mind
hither and thither, in an agony of remorse and shame. Shutting out heaven's light from Ins eyes with his cold
hands, that awful hour passed again
before him.
Who wonld believe that it was all a
chancel N v, was it chancel And
then what power of earth or hell had
kept Irini back when a spring, au outstretched arm, would have saved tbe
child?
fie never lied to any man, but what
if he weie to say. "31 y senses left me,
I had no pouter to stir!" Would any
living mortal   believe   him?
Over and over that   miserable,   self
condemning track his piti'ess conscience
dragged him, bringing him ever face to
face with the accusation that burnt int
his b ml—"You wished him dead,"
He had wished him dead, til ugh till
this moment this unholj thought haJ
never shaped itself iu honest words.
If I is soul had been clean of tbat
sin, then had he dared gn hack and face
his fellow men and tell them that the
deed was none r 1 his; and poor of cour-
tg and pitiful as lie might seem, no
li rder name then "coward" would be
(lung .11. him. //that evil wish had
never stained his envion« heart, then
■mud he, whose word all his lite
through had be n as freely taken as
notlier man's oath, have forced credence on al who heard him, all men
should have sworn he was   no—
No what?    "Good Und," he mutter
ed, and fell a-iremhljng like the   blown
leBves over bis head.
' No murderer," said the voice within.
An i this loved husband, this trusted
friend, this man of gentle birth, and,
save in (his one great trial, of gentle
heart, worthy the love he owned, sal

him close on to marines..
The sin he had   fostered   had   taken

a pall when, close by, the bast wbir-r-r
of a pheasant's flight startled hmi, and
pen ing his heavy eyes once mor upon
the outer life, lo! the pink flush of
dawn was stealing through the trees,
nn  ther day was waiting for the   world.
Then, Clamped fr m his wietcbe.il
vigil, chilled to the very bone, Mr.
Beresford rose up and turned his face
homeward.
To that home which to his memory
Heemed a very paradi e, he would drag
iris steps; and then? Why, then came a
giea. blot between hiui and the future
—farther he had no power to  think.
Through the golden bracken and
thick underwood, all laden with the
heavy nigbt dews, heedless of bough
and branoli and thoros, of all that lay
between him anrl home; on he went,
clearing the wood, and standing ia the
(open fi-eWswl last, fot a mom em lie
paused. There yonder was tbe roof
that covered his beat beloved, and a
rush of passionate emotion half-choked
him.
"God blesa them I God help me!" he
ur anpti, and even as he uttered the
words help came.
'Mr  Beresford,  sir!"
it was old I' ter Burt n shouting to
bim, beckoning him towards bis co'iage,
a little bit of a dwelling-place just on
the otrttaMrts of tbe  wood.

At on a deaf man's ear fell Piter's
low-toned explanation., and it was
-oiue minutes before be could make
clear to his hearer hi> own share of the

She was such a child. Such a guileless, simple, pttre-faeed, lovely child;
with her liquid violet eye*, her long
tresses of half-curled, pale golden hair
floating over her soft white dress, and
her sixteen summers. Such a joyous,
bouyaut spirit—as free and unfettered
as tbe lark's morning carol, and withal
so tiwid, so tender and shy. Her
father's darling, too, the youngest, the
best-loved. His "dear little ewe-lamb,"
he used to call her, laying his shrivelled, trembling band on the fair young
.bssad—poor   old man!.    They   might
have left ber to him, be laid sorrowfully.

Had she not OBO* lieurd u voung,
ignorant country servant allude to the
Honorable MadelLeas ".Miss Minnie"!
liHgrrtceful: Jjid not her father, with
his ubsurtl, inipnieui ul ideas, raqaeat
that she might not be kept indoors tot
more thun two hours ut lessons, liut accompany him everywhere over the
estate, riding like a gypsy, on a black
pony, with a stmw but to keep her
face from the sun, and wearing a pair
of clumsy boots be had hud    made   for
er to keep her feet from the wet?
.Shocking! What Imsines, had the
Honorable Madeline Montressor to be
exposed to the nun or   wet?
But that was soon at end. Her
ladyship wus rather wiser than ber
lord, as she wus younger by thirty
years. She had not the slightest idea
of allowing the fairest of ber   flock   to
blush unseen." .Sbe waited only until
her third eldest, the Honorable .lulinnu.
rf off her bunds - and considering
tliat she wus  the very   plainest,    with
sharp feature*, and tow coloured hair,
a younger son with only fifteen bun-
lred a year, and expectations, was not
to be despised, as her ladyship congratulated herself—but now she determined that all her vast power of strategy
and tactics should lie brought to bear;
her intimate knowledge of tbe fiiust
warp and weft of Society, her valuable
powers of discrimination, her indomitable arrogance and self-will, all united
to steer one frail barque through the
troubled and perilous wa'entof fashion
able life -all those mighty power*
focutsed, so to speak, on the waxi n
brow and tho gentle bead of golden-
haired Minnie- Heaven help  her!
So she was taken in hand anil taken
away to London for ber lii-st drawing-
room, and ber lirst season. Away from
the white-Mired father, and the old
nurse, and the gamekeeper'* cottage,
where the spotted rabbit* lived, and
the dear little ducklings—one of them
was "Miss Minnie's duck;"—away from
the black pony Kobin. and the green
lanes where the wild roses grew—the
roses were all in bud when she went —
and the wide meadows with the blackberry hedges, and the gurgling river
where the speckled trout played in tin-
deep shady pool*, and the dear, beloved
old home, where Minnie's sunny bedroom opened oil' darling papa's study,
so that pupa used tn i-all bis sleepy
little daughter in the morning** sometimes, to go out for a nice walk down
the avenue before breakfast, "n-ul see
the. hures cropping the dewy gjtius, and
hear the rooks Catwjng majestically as
tbey swung in the aim-tree*. But that
was all past and done witli   nn*.    She
awoke one morning in one of the small,
dull bedrooms of the town-house, und i
lay wearily, nervously, listening to the
rtUhing roar of the busy city life, and
then her sisters French maid, a slv,
sallow, Muck-eyed woman, with a sneering smile, and u low voice, came to
mlie the Honorable Madamouelle in
one of her new morning dresses of
spotless while, besprinkled and roset-
ted, ami ruohed, with crisp blue ribbons—an uncomfortably grand dress,
Minnie thought, and she sighed for her
holland wrapper and her little velvet
slippers, down at the heel; -and her
soft, flowing hair was wreathed and
rolled into a coiffure tnatinale, Mademoiselle Annette called it, and then a
long, weary, purposeless, dawdling
about, until the eleven o'clock IuliL
fast came, when she was so dreadfully
hungry that she ute six slices of bread,
to the unouttBOaled surprise und niinoy-
ance of ber lady-mother, who greotly
reproved her for sueh u manifestatioli
of vulgarity. Then a yollow-faeed,
fierce dunking gentleman, with huge
black ninustaihes and an unpronouce-
ablo Italian name, came to give her a
music lesson, and frightened the Hnirior-
able Madeline nearly out of ber life by
his grunts and exclamations in a foreign tongue, anil his frantic gestures
when she struck a wron" note; and
when be departed she received a second
reproof for her discreditable backwardness in music from her ladyship, who
had, of course, carefully mounted guard
beside the piano all the time, and
frightened Minnie more than the Italian master had done.
Then there came a formal luncheon,
and then her ladyship's afternoon visitors; and Minnie had to he introduced
to such numliers of strange ladies and
gentlemen, who looked »sk«mce at her,
admired Iict tflpenly, rind paid lvev
edged complriireMs. until the poor child
sat with downcast eyes and crimson
cheeks, wishing earnestly that she were
a thousand miles away, or, at the dear
old home, beside the southern study-
window, where the white jessamine
grew!
After tbey had ceased to arrive
with their roHmg carriages and thun
dering knocks, Minnie was bidden to
go to her dressing-room to be attired
freshly for a drive in the Park, and
black-eyed, evil-smiling Annette put
on her a dress of the latest fashionable
combination of blues and greens, knots
of rich satin, and frills of ivory-hued
J lace, in wbicb the   was   braced,   and
and buckled, am!   ru llu rl,   until j

Sh'- luy down on u sofa, und fell

about th.; ganekeeprr being riding
Robin the black puny, Annette called
in her unpleasant falsetto void-. "Ma
demoiselle! the dressing-bell!' Another coiffure, and another in --. Md
the Honorable .Madeline inuilt ln.r way,
sleepy und bead aching, down to the
drawing -room, in soft creamy white
gauze, (lowing in billows behind and
around her, a fragile' cloud of white
tulle around her poor little pink satiny
(boulder*, which felt bare und v.-rv
cold, a nasty heavy gold bracelet pinch
ing one waxen arm, and a teasing link-
ihaiii of pi ni Is anil turquoises slipping
up and down the other, More strange
people! uinie introductions, glances,
i-oinpliineiits, chatter, and dinner, Sbe
was vary hungry, of course, but was
rather afraid to eat: besides, sle- had
too much to think of, and kept shrinking all the tiirte from the unoonoealcd
admiration of the gentlemen, young
and old, and the politely hostile looks
of the ladies, "Ridiculous of Ludy
Montressor! What can she be thinking of, to bring such a child 'out!'"
"Charming little creature! Don't
think I ever saw a lovelier face than
the child bus— did VOuf"
Minnie beard all those remarks: they
awoke what vanity luy doniisnt in her,
they pleused, confuted, und   distressed
her. Then the evening got very tiresome and ber bead aehi d worst?; at lust
the people went, and she gladly prepared for bed. Hut first, she had to undergo an ordeal in ber ladyship's room,
of questions, reproofs, und i'ashionable-
raotherly advice, whereof the greater
part was incomprehensible to the poor
little girl. Then to bed] but not to
sleep. Her eyes ached, her head ached,
and 1 think her throbbing heart ached
too.
Another day the lame—varied by a
flower show, and a dancing party at
the house of a Right Honorable Dowager Countess, whither the Honorable
.Madeline went, in blue crape and tuile,
and white roses, and returned in tatters
from the spur* of a tall, handsome, dissipated-looking cavalry officer. She
shrank instinctively, in her maidenly
pride and purity, from the bold glances
of his dark eyes.   She turned from h'ui
and disliked him; but her mother, with
a stern glance at her, desired her to
give him her hand for a waltz; and
Minnie waa whirled around the room
in tlie bold, bad-looking man's arms,
and obliged to listen to his flattery
and reply to his   questions,   until   she
felt ready  to cry.   Lady   Montressor
shortly told her not to make herself
idiculous, arid that be waa a baronet's
son, with a splendid property, which.
oddly enough, did not make Minnie
think any better of him.
Anot lur liny the same—varied by a
riding-lessoii. and the Opera In the
evening, with tin- cavalry officer in »t-
tendanoa, and Minnie consequently
teaswl and flattered beyond all bounds.
Then came the day whom tbe wa* presented trr Royalty, which to Minnie,
even more than Other nervous young
debutante*, was tt varied martyrdom of
the most prolonged description.
Other day*, other week* all rushing
past in the sani" groove, only becomii g
mure wearisome, feverish, and uniatifl
fying. The season was nearly over.
but die fashionable physician hud to be
oalled in.
The Honorable Madeline could nnt
sleep well, she bail no appetite, BO
spirits -worse her complexion was fading, and her eyes were hollow and
sunken.
The small gentleman in the itnma
eulate broad-cloth and professional
white tie, tailed seraphically At Minnie,
recommending chicken ami Madeira,
and—"the sea side as early as possible,
my Isdy."
But thefo was several balls, a couple
of dozen receptions, "at homes,''
"drums," conversaziones, opera-nights,
and theatre-nights, to be got through
firstand then the Honorable Madeline
accompanied tbe Honorable Juliana,
nnd the Honorable Frances, and the
Honorable Selina, afld the Right Honorable Margaret, Lady Montressor,
their mother, to Brighton, and then to
Scarborough, and then to the Highlands,
and then somi'where else, but never
home to the dear old Abbey. She did
not care to go; somehow; her life was so
strange tbwt it seemod often as if that
other existence belonged to another
person, amd that she (the Honorable
Madeline Montressor) had never lived
it. Besides, she would harve to leave it
all again, )ust when her heart began to
cling as closely as before to it; no, better stay as she was, and try and enjoy
fashionable  life.

A Bill before the House at Ottawa is
intended to (top the vile practice of
adulteration. If the bill becomes law,
any grocer who sells burned barley for
coffee, or »•■ rup for honey will, for the
firtt offence, pay a fine of $50, and for
the second offence, $200. and shall
auffer imprisonment will hard labor;
and any knave who adulterates beer or
whisky shall pay a fine of $400 and
suffer three months' imprisonment with
or without hard labor. Tint is a good
bill Manitoba is discontented. Proa-
perity creates loyalty, and the poor are

WHAT THE PREMIER  WANTS
AT   OTTAWA,  AND  WHAT
HONEST JOHN  WANTS
HERE.
[From the Malnl. d Ou.rtll.li.]
The complete absence of any  valid
excuse for the Premier's visit to Otta-
,   has evoked   a   great   number of
guesses to account  for it.      We are
quite prepared to believe that whatever
may be the grand object  in  view, its
achievement was deemed more easy of
accomplishment whilst  he could   still
boast of the dignity of Premier ; hence
the sudden departure as soon as the
session closed, as anoth°r session might
see him once more a tenant   of the hermitage  without   official  rank.     That
Mr. Smithe had an object no one can
doubt, and that  the   object   was   not
only one which appeared to htm attractive, but which  had been   strongly impressed upon his mind's eye by the ur
gent persuasion   of  a   bosom   friend.
Who that bosom friend is may be easily
guessed.     Like  Damon  and Pythias,
Honest John and Mr. Smithe know no
happiness when apart from each otlii
If one goes to  a   Church   social, there
will ultimately be found the other, and
no temperance lecture would be  complete without them.    How Mr. Smithe
was enabled to tear himself away from,
his beloved   John is  hard to   say, but
there was,  doubtless, consideration of
» substantial character in  view to recite the sacrifice.     Amongst the numerous guesses we have  heard   about
the street cornrrs, one  appeared to us
to harre more weight than the rest.   It
was to-the effect  that Mr. Smithe esteemed his fine intellect  and  tall person exactly fitted  for the position of
Indian Commissioner in this Province,
and his intimate knowledge of the native character, gathered from his association wr6h- ''Lo," at  the hermitage,
made his appointment   almost a   foregone conclusion.    We must now state
particularly why we looked   upon this
suggestion as the object of Mr. Smithe's
trip to Ottawa^ witli  more than ordinary attention.    It will' Be remembered
by   those amongst our   citizens   who
take the trouble to read the Victoria
"Colonist," that that journal has lately
made two or three unprovoked attacks
on the much esteemed head  of the Indian Department in this Province. We
need   hardly remind our readers   that
Honest John and the proprietor »f the
"Colonist" are  bound together by the
strongest of bond*—mutual  intei-est—
and it was the most  natural thing in
the world that honest John should use
his interest  with   that paper, to make
Mr. Smithes application feasible, It
will also have been noticed in late
nuniliers of the "Colonist" that through
the good offices of Mr. Smithe, a magistrate was to be appointed for Metlah-
khatla. In this, the strong interest
felt by Mr. Smithe will lie apparent,
and the discussion of the troubles at
tliat settlement would all'ord Mr.
Sinitlie an opportunity which he would
doubtless "improve" to show how much
he understood of the subject. Of course
we only throw out the hint to our
reader*, and they can "turn it and cook
it" aa they please. We may now look
at the position from honest John's
point of view, and we shall Bee that,
distressing as the separation is—even
for a short time—between himself and
Mr. Smithe, lie was not withont good,
strong causes of consolation. His progress in getting rid of our lauds to
those who enjoyed the advantage of
his acquaintance—even in the position
of Provincial Secretary—was most satisfactory, but it waa easy to jierceive
that if heoccupied tbe position of Premier and Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works, htopoWer would be greater
and the Province would be literally at
his disposal. How nice ! We sliould
soon be without a single ocrc of mineral, timber, or farming land. As for
the immigrants—well, if they are fool
enough to be imposed upon by pamphlets that really mean nothing, it is
their affair and they must take the
consequences. Then there is plenty of
room in the United States. Another
thing, they might not be highly moral
and temperance people, which is a sine
a a non with honest John, or why did
he go to snivel at a revival meeting!
The great misfortune for honest John's
ambition is the prospect of a change
taking place in the Province. Every-
iug has gone on smoothly and comfortably so far, and had the voters decided to make a purullel to John Butts
Premier, and elected the occupants of
the Penitentiary for representatives, it
would have been ail right. But with
new comers arrives competition, a livelihood will be harder to obtain, and
electors will be more particular' in
that case they might not desire to have
honest John for Premier.
AFFAIRS IN THE EAST.
The best illustration of the evil*
arising from a great statesman allowing
personal feelings to influence his policy,
may be seen in the case of Gladstone.
His deep and abiding hatred of Beacons-
field extended beyond the grave, and in
his stupid selfish desire to doanything so
that it was essentially different to what
Beaconsiield proposed or would have
done had he lived and remained in
power, he haa sacrificed the interests of
the nation that he is now- lu'ri'ng as the
chief minister. In no case has this
yearning to diverge from the policy of
Beaconsfield been so clearly evident as
in Central Asia. Had the boundaries
and course of action proposed by
Beaconsfield been adopted, a great deal j Christian protectors into their
this will now be turned to account
since it lias been decidiil to compkto
the railway to Candaliar at onee. It
is said that it haa been decided to carry
the railway from Candahar to Herat as
a setoff to the absorption nf Merv by
Russia. This is also an excellent move,
and we trust it will be adopted. But
probably the most important part of the
new policy forced, let us say, on the
British Government, by the advance of
the Russians to Merv, is the adoption
of a British protectorate over Beloo-
chistan. This was another of Lord
Beaconsfield's schemes, and sliould, in
fact, have been accomplished long ago;
because it will give great Britain a
firmer hold of the Affghaiis and the
mountain tribes; liesides securing lioth
ends of the passes through the Solyman
range, it will also secure the excellent
harbor on tin1 Arabian Sea to lirituin,
and add strength both strategically and
commercially to the Knglish position in
India. If Russia has gained a footing
in advance towards India by tho annexation of Merv, she has given a pretext
to England for erecting impregnable
gates barring her further progress, und,
on the whole, probably doing for Great
JSrituiii what she would never have
done for herself und.ir a Radical Government. It is satisfactory to know
that'England is awakening to her true
policy 111 the east.
THE BRITISH VICTORY AT 1KB.
of money and many valuable lives
would havo been spared. Notwithstanding the strongest protests from Calcutta
and the most earnest warnings on the
part of officers and gentlemen well acquainted with affairs in the east, Candahar was abandoned, frgardless of the
tears and piteous appeals of the people
who have no affinity for the people of
Affghanistan nnd no desire to be ruled
from Cabul. What was the reoult?
Abdurrahman Khan sent a large body
of troops to take possession of Candahar,
the people resisted and were butchered
in the most cruel and relentless manner.
Now we are going back to take posses
sion and re-build the forts that Gladstone ordered to be blown up. Wc are
going back to tell the relatives of the
people who were murdered by the
Affghaiis, that our desertion of the
place was all a mistake! If Gladstone,
iu his besotted hatred of Beaconsfield,
supported by a Radical majority who
knew nothing cbout the east, had
looked at the matter dispassionately,
he would have found that Candahar,
aside from its strategical value, was the
most precious position, next to Herat,
in Central Asia. Before it was abandoned by the British from Gladstone's
instructions, it was the great centre of
trade with all the rest of Turkistan.
Merchants and caravans assembled
there to obtain their supplies of English goods and sell the material and
stuffs froas the Khanates and tribes
throughout that great country. But
Gladstone only remembered one thbig;
the retention of Candahar was the
policy decided upon by Beaconsfield,
and Gladstone must show that such
policy was undesirable and unnecessary.
Failing to convince the great axeman
that it was necessary end proper tore-
tain Candahar, the Council at Calcutta
secured a compromise; they were permitted to retain the Pisheen valley
where some of the work on the railway
intended to connect Quettah with Candahar had   been   partially   completed:
If the telegraph* il account of the tlefeat

Ouins can be trusted, it is clear thut the Knglish soldi.rs itiidui- («en. (Jri.bi.ut have to
deal with much Dior* formidable enemies
than were the men who fled from ths
trenches ut Tel-el-Kebir. Evidently the
worthless material nf whi-jh the garrison tit
Khartoum and Sennaar are comprised could
not witlintautl the onset of the desperate
fanatics Ir-d by Osman Digma. UnltHs the
spirit of the Arabs bordering the Nile should
lie awed by a succesaion of heavy blows inflicted on the coast tribes, the position of
Q*D. Cordon will be one of extreme peril,
fruin which nothing but the prompt advunce
of a British force can reacut, him.
The details of tiro four- Iioui-'b lighting required to carry the rude defences of the
Bedouins ut Teh are peculiarly interesting
frurn their bfiaring on the question whether
even the superlative physical courage and
fanatical contempt of death evinced hy the
followers of the early Caliphs could make
head against the instruments of destruction
with which modern science has equipped
European armies. It will be observed that,
although Osm ni Digma hud at bis tlispnttal
seven jiieees nf urtillcry and .. ore than tv. 0
thousuinl Remington rifles, captured from
the Egyptians, very little execution waB
done with these improved appliances, which
the Arabs bad not learned to use. The British Ins-, estimated ut ubout 1 70 killer! and
wounded, was utmost wholly incurred
through strokes dealt at close quurters by
ciinott-rs uud upeura. But that the BednuiiiH
should have got near enough to the hollow
square formed by their asaaillants to ileal
liaiiil-to-hrinil bio us, that they should have
made repeated t liurges iu the face of a steady
fire that mii.it have nionctl them down hy
hundreds, bears impressive' witness to the
valor und the moral exaltation of Oilman
Diglna'H partisans, ft isuho sigiiiticunt thut
few, if any. prisoner* are nuiil to have been
taken, and so sullen, slow, anil Orib rly was
the retreat, thut although the battle seems to
have been over at one o'clock, no attempt
was made by the British commander to pursue the rel.els, anil renewed fighting was
looked for when the advance was resumed
on Saturday.
It was tn be expected, after their successive victories over Commander Moncrief,
'i'ewfic B'.-y, and Oen. Buker that the bravery natural to Bedoulpt should in the case
uf the tribes controlled by Osniftn Digma be
intensified by the convictiini that Allah hail
delivered the Egyptian intruders and their
hands. We
may tuke fur grunted that a confidence inspired by continuous triumph will be extinguished li) persistent reverses. Hut it the
Hants of revolt in tire .Soudan is to be checked with sulhcicnt rapidity and completeness
to permit of the safe withdrawal of the more
remote garrrsoris, the advantages guiuetl by
the British f-uce Blrmilrl he uninterrupted

it woultl he fu? mope desirable that the rebels
should muktia second and even .1 third stand

As to the ultimate direction of Gen, Graham's nmvemcnts, it appears that the Win-

The tlesputch of two battalions to Assouan

Divink Skkvic-e. —For sonic weeks past
the Kev. K. Kobson, of New Westminster,
has been bidding Methodist services every

Hall, which have been very well attended.
In adiliti u to this wc are now to have an

wide is being put down, to be continued
some distance along the latter etreot, with
an additional width of two feet. The Douglas Street wnlk will then be extended to and
along .John Stre-t, and shall have a width of
fifteen feet. Engineer Hill has been engaged this week in taking the levels of the
principal street*, preparatory to their being
graded and put in condition for the heavy
traffic of the coming summer.
Cumo   Lake Settlekh — The   energetic
settlers iu this vicinity are deserving of
great praise for the rapid and permanent im-
pio.emeuts uoiiceablc on their several ranches. A good deal nf laud has been cleared
the past winter, aud preparations are now
bring made for putting in cropa. During
the pa-.! week they have been engaged in
constructing a road from the settlement to
connect with the trail which joius Kyle et.

find a ready market for their produce, and
at the same time encourage others to settle
in the neighborhood.

Dancerfkom Fire. —Those of our readers
who were in Port Moody laat summer, will
remember the days of anxiety and the ntyHts
of watching spent during the progress of tho
forest fires in this neighborhood. There is
greater danger1 from tti* same source the
coming season. Buildings*So-ve beeil erected
amidst standing and falleU tirhtter, and the
ground in many places i* thickly covered
with dry underbrush, through which a fire
would spread with the speed of the wind. It
tahooves every land owner ia Port Moody,
both from motives of personal safety and a
proier regard for the protection of his
neighbors and the city generally, to sec that
his lot is cleared from underbrush and in*
flam Ruble debris now. The dry season is
upon us", and once a fire starts on the outskirts of the city, we are but poorly prepared to do combat with it, and consequences the most serious must inevitably ensue.

Death or Mr. J. W. Hennuwt.— Thi*
gentleman passed away at an early hourTues-
day morning, almost without a struggle,
The malady which caused his death waa that
terrible enemy of humanity, consumption.
Like a vampire it seised upon his system,
and nothing could induce it to relax its hold
but death. Mr. Hcnnessy was a native of
Mirsinichi, New Brunswick, and cams to
thia Province about 10 years ago ; he was
only 36 years of age. Hi* was one of those
rare spirits that know no fear, and his energy was indomitable. Jn conjunction with
these he had a great deal of enterprise, in
which he was generally successful. The
high position in popularity and which he has
placed the Holbrook House, is due entirely
to hi* own exertions. He was of a genial,
generous disposition, and a great favorite
with all who knew him intimately. In sport*
ing matter* he was generally well versed,
aud held hia own with the best. He was al*
ways ready to help a deserving object, no
matter of what nature or creed. He will be
long missed from amongst us. His widow
has the most heartfelt sympathies of our
citizen* in her sad bereavement.— Guardian.
THE GLADSTONE REFORM BILL.
The long-promised bill for the extension
of the PurTianieutary franchise, which was
utio.luced last week in the House of Com*
! mous, represent* unother step toward the
< eiifranehi-.en.ent of the poorer classes in the
United Kingdom, though it stops considerably short of universal suffrage. According
to the author's entiniate, the measure proposed will add a million and a half of voters
to the constituency created in Great Britain
by theKclorm act of 18U8, while Irishmen,
who were not suffered to profit by the law
last named, and who have remained for half
a century where Lord Grey's Reform act
left them, ore now to be placed on precisely
the same footing with their fellow subject*,
So for as England, Wales, and Scotland
are concerned, the aim of the uew bill jt- to
enfranchise a part of ihe rural cultivators by
conferring on residents in the counties the
same voting privilege* which artisan* aud
email traders in the boroughs have enjoyed
for fifteen years. Not only will the ooeu-
pants nf leased pmni-.es (including ludgeCS)
who pay an annual rent of $.">0 or more acquire the franchise, but in this category are
to be included agricultural laborers living
rent free in cottage* on their landlords
estate, whew tho privilege ol occupancy rt-
piesents a rent equivalent to the sum above
mentioned. The numbers of laborer* thus
enfranchised will to a large extent depend
on the legal machinery provided for asses
-ing the proportion of tho wages eiirned by
ri nil labor which has hitherto been wiih-
In Id on account of the 'collages that have
been nominally tenanted rent free. That
means will be found to render tlie clause
just cited a substantial boon to that large

from which he tuok large portraits of hiii>s-,f
and medals with description* of hu pcm.il>-,
which he hung ou either side of him. He
then replaced Ins round head with a magnificent burnished helmet, mounted witb bril
liant plumes. For his overcoat he donned a
costly velvet tunic m ith gold fringes. Hi
then drew a pur of polished steel gauntlets
upon his hand.-., cohered hi* breast with a
brilliant cuirass, aud placed ft richly* mount

on a velvet robe aud helmet, und struck up
a tune on un organ mounted in gold. To the.
crowds gathered around he then exclaimed:

From a very curly age the new Prime Minister was largely taken into the confidence
of hi* father, initiated into the .State intrigues and otherwise prepared for the important position which heuas destined to occupy by what has become, from the precedent of a century, almost a right of inheritance in his family. And, moreover, he has
been brought up in the principles of constitutionalism as opposed to those of despotism.

In Ireland, of course, the in ban a* well as
the rural population bas much to gain from
the new bill. The effect Opon the county
constituencies, however, will be leas marked
than in Great Britain, because a relatively
smaller proportion of tenants and laborers in
Ireland pay sn annual rental pf $00, or-njoy
a privilege of cottage occupancy equivalent
to that .sum. Indeed, it may be doubted
whether in Ireland any agricultural labor-
era, as distinguished from small tenants, are

Accepted, apparently, as a substantial in
HLullment of their dues by the followers of
dr. Puruell aud the Irish members gener
ally, with the exception of a few i epresenta-
tives of Conservative) constituencies in that
kingdom. This support, however, is conditioned on the Government's adherence to the
programme announced last week, on its
refusal, that is to -i>, to complicate the
present subject of legis' ition, which is purely and simply extension of the suffrage, by
SjeoeptingM amendment looking to a redistribution of representation. Now, such an
amendment will unquestionably he offered,
if not by tlie Goiifiei vative minority in the
ll'-u.v of Commons, then by the overwhelming (' ns-rvative inojunty in-the House of
Lord-i. It "ill be argued by Lord Salisbury
that in view of the present irreconcilable
temper of Ireland, it would be i-uieidal to
give Lnrresasd political power to the most
bitterly hostile element of her population
without seeking some guarantees and cmdu-
t-*rpoi*ing forces in ivdistrilMition. He
maintains, and there in reason to believe that
many Knglish anil Scotch Liberals agree
with him, that Irebuid, considered us a
win pie, has, in comparison with Scotland,
too large a quota ot representatives iu the
House of Commons; and, further, that of
the sents allotted to her a much larger share
oujJit to lie given to Ulster. It is on the demand for redistribution thus formulated and
defend'-d that the Conservatives will base
their resistance to the Gladstone project of
electoral reform; and we may witness some
surprising incidents, including more than
one defiance of party dicipline like that of
Mr. Marriott, in the contest now begun.—

to be consolidation of Germany under the
joint loader.-hip of Prussia and Austria, intimately allied; the military object, the re-
conquest of Alsa -e for Germany as a whole.
Prance, according to Prince Bismarck, was
unprepared for war; and as France 'Jl)0 years
