fortunate lady was transferred to a small
vessel which was in waiting for her.
Bitterly did she weep, and pitifully implore coinpaision; but trie Highlanders

ofthe Western Islands named Heski',
belonging to Sir Alexander Maclonald
of Sleat.
I he unfortunate ladv remained in
Micdunalds'i charge at lleskir nearly

famili; afterwards some little indulgence was shown to her. Tnis island
*as of lesolate aspect, and had no inhabitant beside' Macdonald and his
wife. The wretchedness of such a situ,
ation for a lady wbo had been all her
life accustomed to ine r fined society
of a capital, may eaaily be imsgined.
In   June   lfS4,   si sloop came to
Heskii to  lake awny the  lady; it  was
commanded by a Macho I, an Iin it she
was conveyed  to the remotest  spot of
ground  connected    with   the   British
IsUnds—namely, the isle of St»I_ilii»,
the property of the  chief of Macleod,
a<d remarkable   for   the   simple char
acier ofthe poor peasintry who occupy

that those who  had an  interest   in tbe
seclusion of  Lady Grange,   regarding
thisas a more drgible placetban   11.-s
kir, in as far us it was more out of the
way, and promised bnter for her   complete anil  permanent cimfineiiio. t.    In

lid a steward come 10 collect the   rent

* ith a store of such articles, foreign to
ihe place, aa she needed—usually a stone
of sugsr.u pound of tea,   six   pecks  of
wheat and au oiker of  spirits.   Thus
she had no lack f the common   necessaries of life; ihe only   wanted   society
and freedom.    In Ibis way   she   spent
seven dreary years in St.   Kilda     We
learn that she   wai   kind    to    the   inhabitants, giving them from   her /own
stores, and sometimes had the women to
come and dance  before her,   but   ber

gain   their esteem.    Often ihe drank
too much, and whenever any one near
her committed the slightest mist.ke, she

A correspondent with the Anglo-
Russian Commission on the frontier of
Afghanistan sends the following variant
upon the Etory of the Seven Sleepers of
Ephesus. It seems that the cave of
th" Seviii Sleepers, which ill the
Koran is located, at Ephesus, is in
reality in the Hirak valley, on the
Afghan frontier, some four miles to the
south west of the Anglo Russian camp
at Ohahar Samba. The version of the
Koran (says the correspondent) is that
seven men, firm in their faith iu their
own God, separated from the rest of
their tribe, who had taken to other
gods, and, taking refuge in a cave,
were caused to sleep there, with their
dog, for   309  yean.    Tbe   Eshans of
grapby, and haa lately been  exhibited
as a curiosity at a meet inn of tbe   Society of Antiquaries of   Scotland.    In
it sh" aays that, if she had  paper,   she
would write to one of her friends, Lird
Dun; from whicli it   would appear that
sbe had had a difficulty in procuring so
much as a single sheet of letter   paper.
This  interesting   communication   was
brought by tbe  minister   MacLennan
and his wife, who had left St. Kilda in
discontent,     after     quarrelling   with
Macleod's steward.    The idea of a lady
by birth and education being immured
for a series of years   in   an outlandish
place where only   the   most   illiterate
people resided, and this   by   tbe   com
mand of a husband   who   could   only
complain    of   her   irritable    temper,
struck forcibly upon the mind of Lady
Grange's legal   agent,   Mr.   Hope   of
R mkc.illor, who had all   along   felt   a
keen interest in her fate.    Of Mr. Hope
it may be remarked that he was also   a
zealous Jacobite; yet, though   all   the
persons engaged in the lady's   abduction were of that party, he   hesitated
not to take active   measures   on   the
contrary side.  He. immediately applied
for a warrant to search for and liberate
Lady Grange. This application was opposed by the frientof Mr. Erskine, and
eventually it was defeated; yet he was
not on   that  account   deterred    from
hiring a ves-ol, and   sending   it   with
armed men to secure the   freedom   of
the lady.—a step which, as it   was   illegal and dangerous, obviously implied
110 Hinall risk   on   his   own   part,    it
came to nothing.
The poor lady, however, was not
deslined toenil her days in the remote
island of St. Kilda. The attempt to
rescue her, though abortive, possibly
stimulated Erskine and his politicial
confederates to hide her in some new
and secret place of confinement. She
wns removed to the mainland, in Ross-
shire, and there, after undergoing a
few moro years of rigorous seclusion,
she died in May, 1745. She had been
illegally detained for upwards of twelve
vears—s circumstance, reflecting grent
discredit on the public authorities who
had been made aware of her case.
Erskine her miserably intriguing husband, spoke lightly of her decease, and,
viewed it as being in the character of a
relief. His latter days were in strange
contrast with his former position as 1
judge. He lived iu not a very reputable way in a mean lodging in the
Haymarket, Westminister. Thero he
died in 1754, and was not regretted.
Such, iu brief, without the varnish of
fiction, is the story of Lady
Grange, the daughter of Ohiesley,
whose mental peculiarities she had to
a certain extent inherited. At the
time she lived there were no other
ostensible means of restraint for persons in her unhappy condition than the
common prison, or Bedlam with its
straw and its chains. How much
reason have wu to congratulate ourselves on the improved humanity that
provides asylums with gentle tiea.raent
for the safety, and it may be, the re-
c-prery of those on whom has been laid

Accidint with A Shxll.—A serious accident hat juat occurred In the artillery
barracks at Poitiers. Five soldiers of the
20th Regiment of .artillery took up a shell
which was lying on the drill-ground, carried
it to their barrack-room, and endeavored to
untcrew it to examine ita interior mechanism. Hardly had they begun to handle it
when it exploded. One of the men was
wounded iu the itomach, the knee, and the
right hand, which had to be amputated;
another waa wounded in the eye and one of
hia legs; while a third escaped with severe
contusions in the arms. The ceiling of the
barrack-room was pierced by a portion of
the shell, which nearly killed a soldier who
wat in a room overhead. Other men who
were looking on aa their comrades were
trying to open the projectile had narrow
escapet.—Public Opinion.
Cnuncu and Statu is Italy.—A letter
from Rome to the New York Tribune sayi:
— "Thote interested in the reconciliation of
Church and State in Italy will read with
pleasure an account of an occurrence which
took place a few days ago here. The Rector
of St. Magdalen'a Church, bearing the
viaticum to a dying man, was passing dow n
■one of the most crowded streets of Rome
when, on approaching the Senate, lie mat a
regiment nf infantry marching out to exercise. As loon as the colonel perceived the
priett he halted his troops and cominaudiid
them tr, present arms to the Holy Sacrament.
At the aame moment the full guard on duty
at the Senate turned out without arms ami
bent their knees. Surprised and touched,
the venerable priest stood still for a moment
and then, raising hia hands aloft, pronounced
a blessing on the soldiers. This kind of
reconciliation in the public streets is very
sigtiiiicaat, and constitutes another pre-
iHge of tbe approaching establishment of
boudt of unity between a liberal Pope and
a c.nitit-tioual king."
tell a very   different story    The K
Dakianus, they  say, waa   originally a
shepher d of Sbibharghan, and  tended
his flock in the hills   for twelve years,
till oue day   he found a slab of  stone
with an inscription  on it.    Not being
able to decipher   the latter, he showed
it to a moollah, who told him that it
was  a   record   of   hidden    treasure.
Having   possessed    himself    of    thn
treasure and killed the moollah, Dakianus took service   with the   king, and
after some time  rose to the   command
of the army.    He soon   got the   army
on his side,   seized the   kindgom,   and
eventually conquered the world.  When
thus in supreme   power, the devil appeared before Dakianus in tho form of
the Angel   Gabriel, and   tempted him
by telling him that God   bad sent bim
to say that he was Gcd of the Heavens,
but that   Dakianus was   God of   the
Earth.    Dakianus,   who was a   worshipper of the one God, refused to believe the devil, and told the latter that
ho was   not the true   Angel   Gabriel
The devil then offered to prove that he
was, by proposing,   as a test,   that ifa
certain fish on   the  top of the   water
went down on his approach he   was the
true Gabriel, but that if it remained up
he   was   an   impostor.      Accoidingly
Dakianus and   the devil went together
to the bauk of the river, and no sooner
did the fish see the devil than it at once
dived down.     Dakianus   believed   the
test,   acknowledged   the  devil   as the
Angel Gabriel, left off the   worship of
the true God, and at the devil's tempt
ng set himaelf up as a god on his own
account.    One   day,    however,    when
eating his fond, Dakianus was b rthered
by flies, which, tlo   what he would, he
could not get rid of.     His servants said
to themselves:      'He ceils himself (iod,
and yet cannot even get rid of the Hies
that bother   him.    He   is   no   God."
And they   determined to   leave   him.
Six men went   off, and on   the second
day fell in with a shepherd, from whom
tliey   beggeil   bread and    water.    The
shepherd gavo   them all he   had,   and
asked them where they came from and
where they were going to.    They   told
him their   story, and   how they were
Booing from   Dakianus and   wished to
hide, and the   shepherd   agreed to accompany   them   in their  flight.    The
sliepherds's dog also followed   his mas
ter, and the men told liim to drive the
dog back, lest he should   betray tlfeir
whereabouts.    The shepherd objected,
saying the dog   hsd been his   faithful
companion for years;   but the   others
insisted,   and   the   shepherd   at   last
struck the dog with his stick, breaking
one of its legs.    The dog still followed
and the shepherd struck it again, breaking another leg, but   the dog still con
tinued to   crawl  after them    and the
men, struck with pity, eventually took
it in turns to carry  it on   with them.
The shepherd   guided them all   to this
very cave that he knew   of, aud   once
there they all went to sleep, and never
woke for 309 years.    In   the Koran it
is distinctly   stated that the   sleepers
were seven in number, and the  eighth
was their dog; but either the Arabic of
the Koran   is beyond  the  Sayeds, or
they piefer   a   story   of   their   own.
Whichever it is,   there is no   doubt of
the realiam   of the   latter   portion   of
their tale,   as anyone   who knows  the
affection the  shepherds here   have for
their great savage shaggy-coated dogs
and the huge sticks that the shepherds
always carry will testify.    Further 011
in the   story,   however,   the   worthy
Sayeds   get, more  confused still,   and
they have itthal the sleepers woke twice
once in the   lime of   llazrat   Esa.   or
Christ,   and again   in the   lime  of the
ff phet    The story, is,   .hey say, that
when these three men and the shepherd
awoke they felt hungry, and sent one ol
their number to eo to   the city   nearby
called Shahr-i Afsoz t. buy bread.   On
arrival he found the place much alt-red,
and the first bak. r Le went 10 refused to
accept his money.    Ano.her   to whom
he applied asked him where he got his
money from.    1 he man said that it was
ids own and fiom his own. house.    He
was then told 10 poinl out his house, bui
could not   at first, and   eventually   recognised   it by a   mulberry   tree, and
going in he  told them to dig  in a cer
tain place, and there   they found,   sure
enough, his store, ajar full ofDakianus's
coins.    The   ihen   owner of the house-
protested and   claimed rhe   house   and
supernatural and offered to resign tbe
ihrone in bis favor. The man declined,
and stated that all he wished was to be
allowed 10 return 10 his companions in
ibe cave. 'I he King thereupon accompanied bim. With the King were
a hawk and a dog; and a deer being
started on tbe road was caught by these
two and brought in, thus making a third
animai in ihe party. On arrival at the
cave, not only the original six friends,
the Altai Azizan and tbe shepherd, but
the King and the dog and the h.w- and
the deer all went off to sleep, and never
woke again lor some seven hundred
year;-, when the* were awoke by the
arrival of the chahar yar, or the lour
friends of the I'rophe.—that is, Omar,
Ostnan, Abubakr. and Ali—who, le-
peating the Maboinmcdan creed, ai once
awoke ihe sleepers. '. he Utter got up,
repeated the cieed, and then fell asleep
again, anj there they still remain. All
this »a. told me by ihe Sayed.s in tbe
cave, and the}' pointed triumphantly to
the relics in proof of their story. Holding our lighted candles between the
pa ing of the wooden screen which debars nearer approach lo the sleepers
we were shown some cloths on ibe
floor, apparently a rough common sheet
wiih a dark-colored fringed cloth above
il, whicli was said 10 cover the sleepers,
we asked if it was allowed 10 look under
the cloth, but ihat, ibey said, was im -
possible. Even they themselves, ihey
said, knew not what was tbere. One
man had   once tried to look   and wa.
dodbted,    "there,'    pointing   in    in
direction, "was the dog and the deer an •
hawk." Holding ihe candles lo the
right we could then see indistincly
something looking like dried bodies of
some animals propped against lhe wall.
They were very small. The first, said
to be the dog. and about a foot in height,
and ihe deer a few inches higher, bul it
was impossible to say in such light what
animals they were. I he bones of the
legs were visible—in fact, the dog's legs
had fallen off, which rather told against
its being asleep, bui the body seemed to
be covered with dry skin; and yet, on
the strength of these relics, some twenty
families of Sayeds are kept in comfort,
and live here on the contributions of
pilgrims with, in addiiion, as much land
as ihey require free of any rent and
taxes.-Pail Mall Gazette.

Last Week the deputy Sheriff armed with
a revolver and followed by three or four
similarly armed men, including a railway
offldal went t<> Mr. Samuel Greer's claim at

arrent, which waft effected forafew minutes,
but Greer got away from the fictitious constables regained possession of hia houae and

One of the saddest incident! ever known in
St John occurred recently. Just as Wm.
Roberts was led into court to receive his'
sentence for criminal assault on a young girl
named Ella Davia, word waa brought to the
conrt that Roberts' wife had juat died of a
broken heart from the worry and excitement
of the disgrace incurred by her husband.
She was the mother of five little children,
who were the only ones in the house when
the unfortunate woman died. Thia touching
ciroumatance doubtless softened Jndge
King's heart, and he inflicted on the father
and widower the comparatively light
sentence of one year's hard labour, with
twelve laahea from the oat-o'-nice-taila.
The Times, speaking of the land problem
in Ireland, suggests that if it can be shown
that in a certain limited class of oases the
fall of prices haa made the position of the
ocoupier of a property under the Land Act
untenable, a remedy might be found, partly
in a measure providing means for immigration and partly In a land purchase scheme
on indulgent terms to be applicable only
to tenancies of such limited class. The
Government, if it should seriously meditate
such a policy, co aid indirectly mitigate the
pressure upon tbe tenants during the
autumn by the promise ofa special consideration under the scheme of purchase to the
landlord! who are williug to reasonably
abate the existing recta in oases within the
scope of the remedial measure.
A highly aenaatioo&l incident occurred at
the trial in Brussels tA Mme. Rodelet
a midwife of some notoriety iu that city,and
M. Masquf-lier, her lover, who was jointly
charged with the murder of a young woeoan
named Augusta Beekuian, and dispoeing ot
her body by cutting it into piecee and scattering tbe fragments, wrapped in newspapers, in secluded parte of toe eity. Mme.
Rodelet denied tbe crime, even to having
treated the unfortunate woman, but
Masquelier, becoming frightened, coufeaaed
tbat the girl had di>*>d while under the treatment of Mme. Rodelet for abortion, aud
that he, at the Madame'a request, had dissected tbe body. Mme. Rodelet ridiculed
the confession of her lover, saying tbat
Masquelier was incapable of dissecting a
human body. But Maspuelier reiterated
his statement and announced himaelf
willing to prove his surgical skill by
performing the operation of dissection in the
presence of the jury. Masquelier wss taken
at his word, and, guarded by a strong force
of police, he was conveyed to the hospital,
accompanied by the jury. The body of a
young woman whose years corresponded
with those of the abortionist's victim waa
brought in from the morgue snd Masque
lier was ordered to dissect it. Masquelier became terrified, and almoi-t
fainted at the Night of the body, and
he waa taken to soother pait of the room
until he c in posed his nerves. At length he
became quiet, and announced himself ready
to perform his task. An ordinary kitchen
knife hsd been pieced on the table beside
the body, that being the kind of instrument used in cutting up Mi-u Beekman's
body, and Masquelier was told to take it
and proceed with his work. Drawing a
long breath, he advanced to tbe table,
seized the kuifie, aud made an incision upon
the subject before bim. Instantly his face
brightened up, and with rapid strokes hs
began the work of convincing the apecta-
tators of the truth of his testimony. He
worked silently and quickly for twenty
minutes, at the expiration of which time
the body was as tin.roughly and correctly
di&aected as it cuuld have h«en by a practiced aurgeon, and th* jury and police de-
elared themselves satisfied that Masquelier
had told the truth. The prisoner was then
taken back to court to finish hia  testimony.

"Yes, we keep eye stones," said an uptown druggist, "but we don't have a call for
une once in five yean.    Yet   there   must be
3uite a demand for them, for wholesale
eaters purchase all that are brought them
by sailors who make a business of collecting
them on their voyages. Did you ever see an
eye stone!"
"No." said the reporter. "But they are
found in the atnmachaof crayfiab, I believe."
"Then your belief ia about as far wrong
as itnould be." said the druggist, as he took
a small bottle from a drawer. It waa half
full of what seemed to be very small round,
flat pieces of polished bone. Emptying afew
of the pieces on the counter he picked one up
and handed it to the reporter to examine.
There waa nothing notable about the littlr
bono except that oue side was composed of
uumerouB concentric grooves.
" That is an eye stone,"said the druggist,
pouring some liquid out of a hottleon toa
Hmo-tli plate and diluting ilwith watert "
And this is a weak solutiou of  lime   juice."
The dhiggist took one of the eye stones
and put into the solution. Presently the
stone began to move as if it were alive. It
made its way slowely about in different di-
rectiona in the liquid in a mysterious manner.
"That strange movement of the eye stone
when placed In a weak solution of lime
juice or vinegar has given rise among
ignorant and superstitious people to the
notion that it haa life, aud that it loves
vinegar, and loves to swim in it above all
things, But there is no more life in au eye
atone than there is in a paving -.tone. It is
composed of calcareous material, and when
placed in the solutions named is made to
move about by carbonic acid gas, which is
envelved by the contact with liquid acid.
These little atones and all genuine eye stones
once were the front doors to the shell of a
little molluscous animal that lives along the
Venezuelan and other South American
coasts. The shell is a univalve. Thia
calcareous formation is on the tip end of the
little animal, and when he drawa himself
into hia shell to escape danger or go to sleep,
the end, of courae, is the last part of him
thut is drawn into the cavity or mouth of
tho shell where it fits so closely and is so
hard that it affords perfect protection to the
animal against enemies from without. The
native inhabitants collect the eye stones in
large quantitiet-.'aud regard them with great
awe. Sailors engaged on the fruit trading
vessels that visit these regions obtain the
stones and fetch them to New York for sale
to the wholesale druggists,
" There are two little bones found in the
head of the crayfish, just back of and beneath
the eyes, which resemble the eye stone, ox-
cent that they are smooth all over. These
are calhd eye-Hones, and are used as such
iu Ohio and ■ -her Western States, but they
have none ot the virtues of the real eye
stone. The proper uxne for the stone found
in the crayfish is crab -itonea. In Poland
•and parts of Russia quite * trade is done in
collecting crab atones. The ■•rayfish are
buried in deep pits, and left there until they
rot The refuse is then washed and the
stones are picked out. They are used in
many parts of Europe as a corrective of the
"There is nothing better to remove foreign
substances from tho eye than one of these
South American eye stones. Before using
them many people think it necessary to put
them in vinegar ' to give them life,1 but it
ia not necessary. The atone is inserted at
one oprncr of the eye, with the grooved side
next to the lid. The pressure of the eyeball
forces it to move about in the eye, and the
grooves collect the foreign matter and retain
it. After making; s thorough circuit of the
eye the stone will como out at the corner
next the nose. No inconvenience is caused
by its presence in the eye."

The city of Breslao lately celebrated the
500th anniversary of au occurrence which
waa memorable in the hJBtory of the town
add is known wherever German poetry finds
a home. The bell which hangs in the southern tower of St. Mary Magdalen's church
snd is named " St. Mary's bell," but is usually known aa "the poor sinner's bell,"
rang out morning and evening on the 17th
of July to remind all who h**ard it thst it waa
cast on that day -500 years ago. Next day.
Sunday, the preacher reminded his enn
gregatiou of the pathetic story which had
mane it singular ntnong bells, how, when all
was ready for the casting, thp bell-founder
withdrew for a few minutes, leaving s boy
in charge of the furnace, warning him not to
meddle with the catch that secured the
seething metal in the caldron. But the boy
disregarded the caution, and then terrified
on seeing the molten metal beginning tn
flow into the mould, called to the bell-
founder for help. Rushing in and seeing
what he had intended to be his masterpiece
ruined, as he thought, angered to madness,
he slew the boy on the spot. When the
metal had cooled and the mould was opened,
the bell was found to be an exquisite work,
perfect in finish, and of marvellous sweetness of tone. Coining to bis senses, he
recognized his bloody work and straightway
gave himaelf up to the magistrates. "Blood
for blood" was the law; he waa condemned
to die, and he went to his doom while hia
beautiful boll pealed an invitation to all
pray for "tin.- p.ior sinner,'' whence its
name. W. Muller has enshrined the sad
story in a ballad of touching simplicity: —

The recent meeting of the Kmperors
of Germany and Austria and the long
conferences  of Bismarck and Kalnoky
clearly demonstrate  the near approach
of the struggle for supremacy between
the  great northern empire of  Russia,
aided by France, aud the central powers, including Germauy, Austria  and
Italy,  with the  ultimate adhesion  of
England.    This division we have often
foreshadowed, because  the interests of
the powers are  in common in each di
vision,      Russia seeks to dominate the
Balkans  and  secure   Constantinople;
France seeks her war of revanche with
Germany  and a slice of  Syria:  Italy
wants Albania and  her two pro', inces
of  Savoy   and  Nice,  taken  over   by
France  as payment  for her aid in the
war with Austria ; Austria wants some
of the Balkan provinces and is looking
with a longing eye at Constantinople ;
Germany wants  to  make  Austria an
Asiatic  power   in   order to add   the
Gorman portiou of the Hapsburg kingdom to the.  ompire, and also, to render
France incapable of retrieving her lost
provinces *>f Alsttce and Lorraine ; and
England wants the statu quo in Turkey,
and  peace ;-but that she cannot have
without  fighting for it.    She also, desires to see Russia crippled in order to
put  an end  to  her  aggression in the
East.    Thus the interests of the principal nations   likely to be involved in
the coming   war arc distinctly defined
and their respective and joint capabilities- for attack and defence can be approximately weighed.      France has an
army which can be reckoned in round
numbers  at two millions, she has also,
a very   powerful  fleet; Italy  has, say
one million of soldiers and some very
formidable  ships  of war ; Austria has
about  a   million  and  a half of good
soldiers   and   some good   war  ships;
Germany has about two millions of men
and some powerful iron-clads ; Russia
has three millions of men and great facilities of adding  to the number, immense  supplies of   war   material   all
ready for  the field, placed in the most
advantageous  position,  in   view of  a
future conflict, and she haa some large
war vessels ready and is adding to the
number as rapidly as possible ; England
has a powerful fleet,  but she could not
cope with  Russia and France single-
handed ; her army cannot be estimated
at more than a million all told, and its
real effective portion  is scattered over
the colonies.    Of course, in  war time
the effective  forces  of England could
be largely increased, but she must always  regard  her  navy as her strong
arm.    It will thus be seen, that looking
at these possible  belligerents arrayed
on either side as aboye, they are pretty
well matched eo far  as EuroDe is concerned ; but in  Asia  the  matter  assumes another phase.    If, for instance,
Russia   and   England   were   opposed
a I'outrance, England could  raise  two
millions of men in India and she could
bring with her,  her now ally, Ohina,
with countless   millions, if necessary,
and sweep Russia clean out of central
Asia.    Persia, if even inclined to aid
Russia, would   not offer much impediment to  a joint  Indian  and Chinese
army.    Russia would be attacked at
her weakest point and would suffer an
immediate loss of territory and a large
surface for recruiting.    She would lose
the Caspian entirely, never to be regained ;  she would lose all her recent
conquests in Armenia and very probably the whole of  the Caucasus and all
the ports on the Black Bea.    Her territory, immense as it is, would not furnish armies which could be depended
upon  to defend  her fronliorn against
hordes of Chinese that would by the
time tbey reached the confines of Russia, be good soldiers, eager to settle old
scores with her, and equally eager for
loot.    In this way, Russia would lose
the substance in her unavailing efforts
to seize  tho shadow—Constantinople,
because,   for   her, it is unattainable ;
every power but her one ally—France,
would oppose her, and even France, if
she could get the  better of Germany,
would assist in preventing Russia from
reaching the Golden Horn.    It will be
a terrible punishment  for the Musco
vite, that he will be forced to educate
what will he his most formidable rival
—tho Mongol ;• that he will be preparing  the  rod   to scourge himself     All
the Russian dreams of  being a great
Asiatic powor will shrink into nothingness, and  she will he shorn on every
side till  the Russia of tho future will
only be  permitted   to exist as a third-
rate power.     Her semi-savage eagerness  for conquest has blinded her to
the   sure   results   of   a   combination
against her.    prance will be forced to
submit to   a   re-establishment   of the
monarchy and it  may be, the loss of
another province ; at any rate to all
hopes of annexing Belgium or retrieving her lost provinces.    Italy will moke
another step forward, she will probably
portance in relation to other nations
and become consolidated. Germany
will achieve all that Bismarck d
and he will leave the Teuton empire
the greatest, next to England, in tbe
world, when he departs this life.

We have a particular regard for Mr.
Justice Gray; hit personal appearance
and the   tone of his voice always re
minds us of the true English gentleman
and  that personage   we believe  to lie
the acme  of perfection.    We  an- informed, also, that Mr. J ustice Gray is
learned in tbe law, and is looked upon
oa a jurist of considerable attainments.
AU this being granted, we cannot be
be   looked upon as  prejudiced in our
opinions  of the decision recently ren
dererl by the learned judge in the case
of Edmonds, et al vs. the O. P. Railway
Company ; we merely give our impres
sions  of what wo   read.    Mr. Justice
Gray says he carefully  prepared   the
judgment  in the   case—«©. P. R.   vs.
Major.    We may at this point remind
our readers that  one of the attorneys
engaged in the cose, we are told, stated
when talking of the adverse judgment
of Mr. Justice McOreight. that thoy—
the C, P. R. Oompauy—w   rid  find a
judy wlio wouldgive a favora.,.    •'■••■
diot in their case.    Shortly after this
statement the  case was  taken before
Mr. Justice Gray in a very peculiar
form.'  Tho 0. P. R, Oompauy brought
an action against a mimilier of the Coal
Harbor ring—a friendly action, as it
wan called—and of  course, there was
no defence.    But the objoct of the action  was clear; it was  to afford the
learned judge au opportunity, if he so
desired it, to air his particular opinions
on the gubject, untrammeled by the ad
verse  opinions of counsel for the defence.    This was cleverly accomplished
and the learned judge was so pleased
with  tho result that he  rests content
with the profound opinions  then and'
there  enunciated.    Tho extraordinary
part of Mr. Justice Gray's conclusions
at the trial in tho Divisional Court, is
where he states that he had tho advantage of hearing an able argument from
Mr. Richards, Q.O., and that he found
himself strengthened and confirmed in
the  views he had previously expressed
(i. e.) in the judgment he rendered in
the undefended action  above referred
to,    It cannot be pretended that Mr.
Justice  Gray is unique in  holding to
his  opinion,  although  opposed   to all
the  other judges in British Columbia
(the Chief Justice included), and the
able argument of Mr. Richards; people
have been often known to bold to their
opinions even with   the  prospect   of
immediate death before  them.     The
learned judge gave his opinion in the
undefended case o£ O. P. R. vs. Major,
and he sticks to it.    The arguments of
his two  brother judges has no weight
with him ; he  carefully  prepared the
judgment in the case just referred to,
and he is not to be moved by all the
learned opinions adduced by the united
judges on tho  Bench of this Province.
This is consistency with a vengeance.
We are compelled to believe that" Omnia nonpariter rerum sunt omnibus ap/a,"
and that Mr. Justice Gray can only see
through his own spectacles.   He quotes
" The Consolidated Act 1879, in so far
as the provisions of  the same are applicable to the undertaking authorized
by this charter and  in so far as they
are  not  inconsistent with or contrary
to the provisions hereof, and save and
oxcept as hereinafter provided, is here
by incorporated herewith."    Now, the
contention of the learned judge appears
to our benighted intellect,   that   the
clause quoted above, was very well in
its way, but when it was contrary to
the supposed bargain made by the Syn
dicate  with  the Federal  Government
(i. e.)  the bargain they supposed they
had made,  it  was   inoperative.    And
this opinion the learned judge clinches
by saying that "those provisions of law
are clear and undoubted."   It appears
to us that supposing these provisions
of the low to be clear and undoubted
it would argue very littlo for the perspicuity   of   the   Chief   Justice   and
Justices Crease and McCreight, and the
conclusions   of   Mr.  Justice   Gray a
capita ad calcem must be correct     The
misfortune is that  they are three to
one and the vulgar idea is that even in
the case of sheep's heads the largest
number is the best.    Mr. Justice Gray
maintains that a rood running through
every province of the Dominion—although  to a great  extent paid for by
the    people—should   have   privileges
which should be   without  limit,   and
subversive of all those protecting principles of law w hich are only applicable
to small concerns sueh as the small
piece  of  railway once made in China
whioh the people  there afterwards de
stroyed.   We have hereinbefore shown
how profound Mr. Justice Gray is, and

Mr. Justice Gray admitB that the powers given   to tho Company are exceptionally large, but they were given by a
Parliament (of 200aud odd innuinlier)in
which Uritish Columbia was represented
(by six members), so we British Ooluiu
binns, have no  reason to complain, especially,   as we kicked up the greatest
row about the railway,  when we ought
lo have waited patiently for tifty year*,
if nocesaary, in order to obtain what we
bargained for lo  be completed in ten
years.    Mr. J ustice Gray hints that the
branch to this city may be stopped as
well as the other, in consequence of the
action of   " miscreants" who may perhaps (as the   law  now   affirms stands)
escape punishment.    Here,  ugain, we
are at a loss to know who the "mis
creants " are ; they are certainly those j
who prevent the line from being carried
down the margin of  the Inlet.    It is
true that H. A7. Edmonds and his fellow oonspirotors,   prevented or desired
to prevent  this consummation;   but,
really,   it   was the Chief  Justice and
Justices Crease and McOreight. Query,
aro they all miscreants? and if they did
not escape punishment, would they be
