the time in nn srtiole In this Magazine ;
il 'I from what I saw and heard, it was
nnt ililliuiilt tn predict in it   the   cataclysm  tiliich   took   place   four   years
later, though tba idea   of    the   South
resorting io violence   was scouted   in
the North ; uml when, upon inure than
om- occasion,   1   ventured to   suggest
tbe possibility to Republicans,   I   was
Invariably met by the reply thnt I had
nut been long enough in   the   country
in understand the temper of the people,
and attached an importance it did not
deserve to Southern "bounce."    When,

now masses of   ehnrred   ruins; whole
towns hail been savept away,      This, I
,'iiilier, wus conspicuously   the case
ut. A i Inula, where only a few    wooden
shanties—where I found   it  very difficult to obtain accommodation   for  lhe
ti i>_;ht  -indicated the site of the former
to-an.    It is now again   a   flourishing
i-iiv.    Rain and devastation   marked
the track oi invading armies over vast
tracts of country, and testified alike to
ihe severity of the   struggle   and   the
obstinacy of the resistance.      In   this
respeol the Country   exhibited   a very
striking   :ontrast to  France after   the
i i. i in.ii, campaign       .'a -   it   was  my
fortune   to  acoompanj   the   tier.nan
armies through a part of the war,   and
to inarch with them   through   several
provinces of France, 1  eould  compare
■ in' conditions of the theatre of mill
t.'ii'V operations with that of the South
.-iii States immediately after the war,
and judge of tbe nature of the conflict
by the traces «liicli it left, In the
latter case, one may aay that, except
immediately around Paris and in one or
mn isolated localities likeOhateaudun,
it left no I races at all, and enabled
one to estimate ai its proper value,
even if one had not    been   present   at
the battles, the flimsy nature of the ie
sistanc which bad b en ottered.
Perhaps one of tba liest evidences of
the dill' rent , hiiinot.-r of the lighting
which took place between the Northern
snd Southern armia* in aiuerioa, and
thai which occurred in France, is to be
found in the hei thai the Franco German battles were essentially artillery
combats; and that, with the exception
of one or t..vo of the. arlier batlles.such
as Bpicheren mul Gravelntte, the oppos-

lieen killed, others were totally ruined,
others in self imposed exile. A new
and not a pleasant class bad taken
tlii'ii place, trade was at a standstill,
enterprise of all sorts was languishing,
and a feeling of glooji and despoil
deiicy reigned supreinn. My last visit
there was made during the last days of
881, when it seemed like a city rising
fiom the dead : hope and joy beamed
from every eountenance ; and though,
-fier the lapse of so many years, 1
scarcely found  a    soul 1    knew,    there
was   a   life   and     animation     avhich
ugiin-d well for the   recovery    of    l'ie
place from ,ts long uirpor.    Still ii b.s
undergone a change winch will prevent
it ever becoming   the   New   Orleans 1
lirsi r- member.    Tie n iis charm  lay in
its French Creole society—an   element
which has given    way   to   ibe   inioad
f om the North—and, if 1 mat venture
to confess it, in a certain   lawlessness,
which made it what, in local  parlance,
was called the "jumping off   place1'  for
harebrained expeditious of a BlUbuste
ing character to Ouhi,   Central   Amer-
ici,   or any   oth»r   templing   locality.
Among 'he most hnsphable   houses on
the occasion of my visit,   was   that   of
Mr.    Pierre   Soule,   tonnerly   United
States Minister to Madiid. ami    whose
son —al whose  wed.ling   I   assisted —
touglit a duel with thi   Duke of   Alva,
which msde some noise   it   the   time.

the good 1.,-bavbour and   fine   fighting
qualities of these   unliable   emigrants
were   destined   to   lie   of   no    avail;
for   on   our   arrival    af    the   mouth
of  the   San   Juan    river   we   found

The men were   all   drawn  up   below,
each had received  his  rifle,   revolver,
snd liowie,  avith   the necessary   ammunition, and all the arrangements were
made for tutting out our prize,   which
avas lying alaiut MO yards off, in   the
night.    As   a   . ■uipliiuent,    which    I
could noi. refuse hut did   not   appreciate, I was given command of   a   boat
(1 think it was the dingy), and   1   cos

quire long to satisfy him ; and as  I incautiously hazarded a   remark    which
betrayed my nationality,    I avas incontinently ordered into  his   boat   as   a

subject had no right   to   be.      As   he

reached the poinr by toe Bayanoa river
within seventeen miles of the   Oulf of

hostility of the   Darien   Indians - who

avas taken on board the Orion, an 80-

than -nnii n enterpiises are when

.a liicli wus calculated to benefit not onlv
ihe Central American States themselves,
iiut the i-ause of civilization generally.
Subsequent observation contirmed   me
in this view, which lias heen fiutlier
illustiaied by the history of the country During the thiriy years which bave
elapsed since this time, during which it
has been the piey to constant revolutions, while it, has made absolutely no
advance in the arts nf pea' e. I therefore listened witli a .available cur lo

soon as the   Admiral   recovered   from
his amazement at my   appearance   he
most kindly made ind his guest; and  1
spent a very agreeable time   for  some
days, watching the "emigrants" discon
solately pacing the deck, for the Costa
Ricans gave theni tin, slip in the night
and went up tlie river, and their opponents found   their   occupation   gone.
The question they now had to consider
was how to get to Walker.    Few  ever
succeeded in doing so ; and the non-arrival of this reinforcement was the im-
tnediate cause of   the   disaster   avhich
obliged "the blue eyed man of destiny,"
as his friends called him, not long after
to estape  from   the   country.      Poor
Walker 1 he owed all   bis misfortunes,
and finally his own   untimely  end,   to
British interference ; for on hin   return
to Central America, where he intended
was to lie   done in tin
Church to which he
president for the time being having so
far emancipated himself from spiritual
guidance as—iu the opinion nf the
highest ecclesiastical authorities—to
render a change desirable. My infor
niant assured me, under a solemn
pledge of secrecy, that the whole matter
was arranged ; that the revolution
avould probably be    bloodless ur nearly

A terrible blizzard is raging over

a train containing 100 passeugors is
locked up in the snoav, and thoy got

Wc have still the disagreeable
task to record an unsettled state of
affairs in Europe. France occupies a
very unpleasant position ; her govern-
iiieni i. in the hands of men who cute
more about the dissemination ot their
wild theories than the welfare of the
'nation at large ; jnd in the effon to ic-
tain power, tbey are prepared to sarri-
|fice the best interests ul the French
j people Taxation has Ix-tomc burden-
jsome and trade generally is depressa-d ,
but the worst feature is the |xjverty and
distress in the agricultural districts uw
ing to the very loaa prices obtained foi
their produce. This, of course, is a
serious matter for tbe men now in
power, became lhe public finances
show great and growing deficits The
object then, ol tbe present Government
in France, is to divert the attention of
the jieople from home affairs, and to
excite their patriotic feelings in favor of
a war avith Germany. This is a aery
dangerous proceeding and its danger is
quite apparent to M. De Freycinet who
ha. tried to neutralize it by pretending
to pick a quarrel witb Kngland, in
which he knows he can go to great
length, without tuurh risk. It is evident, however, that, the idea of a war
of revenge remains uppermost in the
mind, of the people, and, il they are
balked in this, there may be a reactionary movement which might sweep from
•lower the men in whose hands the destinies of the country now rest. Prince
Bismarck, it is evident, is becoming Im
patient with the constant fear of French
dttack. It paralyses his policy in the
East, where affairs are now assuming a
very threatening appearance, and he
may, in order to settle the difficulty
avith France, meet them half way, and
so get rid of the incessant dispute for
all time. Of course, this mode of procedure avould suit Russia and General
Boulanger, but it would be a terrible
strain on the resources of both countries, but particularly ot France. M.
De Freycinet is perfectly aware of this
fact, and will exert himself to lhe
utmost to avoid a war with Germany,
hut in this ave fear he will fail. According to our last despatches the
Russians, as we sus-x-cted they would,
have bought out the Bulgarian patriots.
In this age, gold has more power than
great armies, and in most cases it is
cheaper; but it is very sad to think that
avarice is always stronger than patriotism and that all the  nobler feelings of
,iui,i,.oity  ait.     imia,s-    ....,.,   -s..     -,.»_,
lucre Although the Bulgarian leaders
may betray their trust, there will always
be some true hearted men amongst the
masses, and it appears that the idea ot
a republic has been started by some of
the boldest amongst them. But a republic is impossible in Bulgaria. Aside
from the disgust avith avhich such an
idea would be regarded by Russia and
Austria, it would create alarm in the
minds of the neighboring monarchs of
Roumania, Servia and Greece, so that
Bulgaria would not have the sympathy
of a single friend in any republican
movement. The agreement now made
public between Austria and England,
we believe, has existed for some time,
but it may have been thought prudent
to let it be known by the world as a
learning to Russia, not to go too far in
respect to her newly acquired influence
in Bulgaria. The next proceedings
will be to make a mock government,
carried on by Russians, and the army
will be officered by Russians; so that
Bulgaria will be in fact, a Russian province. By this means the Czar will, in
a short time, have an army that he can
move at avill, across the Balkans, in
order to create disturbances in Turkey.
The result avould be a quarrel, in avhich
the Czar would pretend lo be called
upon to assist the patriotic Bulgarians
who would be led by his own officers,
and the way through Bulgaria being
prepared for hitn, he would soon be in
Constantinople. The scheme is, no
doubt, very ingenious, but uufortunately
for the Czar, it is well understood, and
he will be checkmated in some way.
The Maine fishermen are getting up
another crusade against a possible reciprocity treaty between the United
States and Great Britain ; they want to
monopoliK the American fish market,
and, avith that object in view, have
managed to get more American vessels
seized by the Canadians, in order to
excite public feeling against it. We
think that their efforts will be unavailing as the Governments of the two
countries arc heartily tired ofthe dispute.
The death of ex-President Arthur was
very sudden and unexpected. It is
true that he was really out of the political arena, but he was much respected
and had many valuable traits in his
character. He was a good type of an
American gentleman. It is reported
tliat the Dominion elections will come
off about the middle of January next,
but, of course, it woeld be dangerous to
jump to a conclusion on the strength
of a report. Sir John A. Macdonald is
a wily politician and if he decides upon
having the elections at that tutu
j be safely concluded   that   it is the liest
that can be done.

anything beyond their own small affairs,
that British Columbia is rapidly developing into whal we predicted it would
be, the first province of the I '.'minion.
Our reasons for such a conclusion ban
been frequently recorded in these ml-
limns ; by way of reminder, ave niaa
enumerate a few of theni. I'he climate
is that of the south of Kngland but
slightly superior The seasons ate llu*
same, with the advantage on our part of
the Indian summer. The products ate
the same, and we have even tbe advantage |>ossessed by Kngland in the way of
fruit. It does not grow so luxuriantly
as in the United States, but it contains
more juice and more flavor. Vegetables
are far superior toanytbing we have seen
elsewhere, and cereals are equal to t lu-
best produced in any other part ol the
world. The soil is extremely i'eitilc,
being com|*oscd principally, oi alluvion,
and is virtually inexhaustible. Game
and fish ate everywhere plentiful, timber abundant. Our rivers and lakes
give us all the water we require for domestic purposes, irrigation or power.
Coal is distributed throughout the Province and will be cheap by and bye.
The lat ility for coal supply makes this
the richest province in the Confederation, because wc have plenty of iron,
copper, silver and gold, all of which
will be avorked in the course Of time.
The area of this Province is greater than
any other in the Dominion, and before
many years arc over, ave shall have a
larger population than any two of the
others. The line climate, the fertile
soil, the wealth of minerals and their
wide distribution, including coal ; the
safety and general excellence of our
harbors and roadsteads, the commanding |iosition we hold in respect to the
Australian, Japanese and east Indian
trades ; our extensive coast line, facilities for shipment of coal and timber,
extensive and valuable fisheries and
the enormous wealth ol the useful minerals, such as iron of the best quality
and copper, at the very water's edge,
as in Texada Island, will afford employment to millions of industrious inhabitants in every conceivable branch
of trade.    Il is not simply the very ex-
. —.:   - .___,.. _.,' Uliiaaas j..ai-*m,nA laj
our native products, but our vicinity to
Australia, Japan, the East Indies, including the straits' settlements; the products of these places including wool,
silk, cotton, fibre of various kinds, and
the ten thousand other articles of use or
luxury, for which we can exchange,
cloths, iron and cotton manufactures,
ships, timber, coal and so forth, all the
products of labor. But ave did not
mention what will certainly be an immediate attraction to this Province,
namely, the fact of its being the great
entrepot between the old and the new
worlds. The advent of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, although only a few-
months connected with our Province,
has created quite a new era in our existence. Our easy going habits of ten
years ago are completely changed, and
people arrive here from all parts ol the
world every day. Liverpool, which avas
formerly a journey of a month or six
months—by rail through the United
States or round the horn- -can noav be
easily accomplished in fourteen days.
The tea trade will undoubtedly adopt
this route ; tea from Japan to F.ngland
has been carried iu forty days. So far.
the railway has simply shown what it
can do without doubt ; as improvements
are added and the system is consolidated, a narked advance will he made in
the swift transmission of passengers and
goods over this line, and the result will
be that the route via British Columbia
will obtain a world wide repute for
safety and rapidity. Then will follow a
living stream that will be constantly in
creasing in volume and this will necessitate avharves, warehouses,hotels,stores,
manufactures ot all kinds and a vast increase to our shipping, to accommodate
passengers and for the interchange of
commodities avith foreign countries.
Until people visit us, they have no idea
of our advantages, and this will cause
an addition to our permanent population of a certain percentage of the vast

I ou. f..'iiilli,iia, is sullereil to go ou fur
three months longer, overriding and hrow-
heating the civil authorities, a military occupation wilt he superfluous. The Bulgarians themselves will rcoogoire that the only
Government possible in their country ia a
|,i" Un-.ian Government.
The proeooilinga ascribed to Gen Kaulbars would be incredible if they were out
avowed and applauded by the St. Petersburg oflicial press. Here is a i au whose
i.tins al Solia differs in no essential particular from that, of the Czar's Minister at
Washington, and who yet assumes to set
aside the judgment of courts, to release convicted criminals, to demand the deposition
ol high nthi'ials. to dictate tho courae of
the national executive and the national leg
i-slature, nnd to organize rebellion against
tho authorities to aaholll he is accredited.
Bulgaria, since its absorption of Eastern
i.ouiiieha. has a population not much
smaller than was that of the United .States
avhen ave Ware subjected to relatively slight
encroachments on the part of the French republic, ami but for the perils of its geographical situation, and ita utter inability
to fight, single-handed, against Russia, it
would long since have treated Kaulbars aa
ave treated Genet.
Yet, instead of pitching Kaulbars, neck
"-•.I heel, aarnea .he Da.n.he. the Regents
of Bulgaria have themselves resigned, convinced apparently by repeated humiliations
that a Governiiieut that dares not 'punish
conspirators and mutineers against its own
authority is no Government at all. Strain-
huliiil' and Mutlturotr, the patriotic and
anti-Russian numbers of tho Regency, have
declined the re-election which the Sobranje
oll'trcil them, and us that body adjourned
without filling their places, executive power
ia represented by Ministers appointed under
the hite Regency, who are regarded aa holding
over, If men like Mulkur-ll, who thwarted
the conspiracy against Prince Alexander,
• lid not venture to defy tho dictatorship of
la an 11, o... svsn lesa independence can be
looked fnr from a stop gap Ministry.
Whether the present Jsobranje ever meets
(renin for any other purpose than a formal
adjournment sn/r die in very di ubtful. The
Czars objection, which compelled the declination of Prince W'al'lemai, was levelled at
flic constitutionality and competence of the
National Assembly, and wonld be equally
fatal to any nominee put forward by tbe
aame body.
What Kaulbars is aiming at and what he
ill achieve, if much more time is given
him, is the suppression of tbe present Mia
stry by /. iiikotl and other ardent partisans
ol Hussia—that is to aay, the very men
who planned or carried out the abduction of
Prince Alexander. As soon aa rill executive anrl pr,Hei,'ial functions are in the hands
of the light persons, a uew Sobranje will be
summoned, und care will he taken tbat no
ml,.a, i tl.lt- patriots shall be returned.
Then the Czar avill dictate the nomination
if a ruler, in absolute iwliSeiencai as to tbe
acceptance or rejection of his choice by the
tin i Kuropuan poavers interested in the
Berlin treaty. For, although Austria and
Kngland may decline to ratify the selections
,ni,Ic from time to time hy the pliable
Sohranje. the Russiun faction will meanwhile he strengthening its hold upon tha
provisional Oovoitnnont, anrl transforming
the army into a useful instrument of Muscovite designs.
Such a, ill plainly he the upshot of Bulgaria's ili-tiii liiitieirs if the Vienna statesmen
limit their threat of intervention to avert
inihtiary occupation. If we may judge by
tin- lu-ogress avhich Kaulbars has already
inr,,1,, it will not take him much longer to
tirgiini.e ra new and thia time successful coup
iVetal on the part of the Russian faction,
avhich will make tlio presence of a Ruaaian
army needless.   -A'. /. Am,

secured for Austria the support of Germany
under all circumstances. The existing Gov*
eminent in Bulgaria was the lawful Government. It was only needed to settle the
question of fuaion with Roumelia. Russia,
in his opinion, had no special prerogatives in
Bulgaria. Count Kalnoky explained that
his statement on Saturday referred especially
to the fusion question. Russia was under
an equal obligation with the other signatory

Count Kalnoky's statement to the delegations was substantially as follows : Austria's
interests in Bulgaria will be the maintenance
of treaty rights. H is immaterial how the
internal affairs in Bulgaria arc managed if
the essentials ofthe Berlin treaty aro not infringed. It will be most difficult for Austria
to avoid taking action during the present
excitement. The importance of Gen. Kaulbars' mission haB been greatly over-estimated.
He has succeeded in making li nasi an influence felt in a most disagreeable manner, but
he bas also evoked the sympathy of Europe
for the Bulgarian people. Gen. Kaulbars,
by the course he has pursued, has attained
nothing whioh is calculated to decide the
political existence of Bulgaria. In the
meantime Austria will patiently await
events, abiding by the principles embraced
in the declaration of Herr Tisza, the Hungarian Prime Minister, whieh will remain a
criterion of the policy for a long time to
come. If Austria is forced to interfere in
order to vindicate the Berlin treaty the sympathy and cooperation are assured uf all the

Nihilism, as an organizatiou, ia not responsible for the conspiracy.     I   have   received
idvieee horn st. Peterebarg which say  that
the recent sensation canned by the reported
murder of Count Heutern is simply a revival of one of the old tales abont the Czar.
Count Heutern lives, my informant tells me,
and iM. deGiors in urging the Czar to prove
this bv sending him ou a mission to one of
the 1. mo pea ii cagitals. The precautions
taken to protect tbe Czar, however, havo
been redoubled, aud have now reached a

The town of Lausanne, iu the canton of
Vaud. Switzerland, is in a state of great excitement over the discovery of the villaiuous
character of one of its hitherto most prominent aud respected citizens. For several
mouths past serious fires have frequently occurred in Yvcrdun and other places in the
Vicinity of I.iii-anne, on which occasions M.
Scbaflter, a high and popular officer of the
Lausanne Plre Brigade, lias invariably
rushed to the sceuo with wonderful alacrity,
in nmst eases reaching the fire iu advance of
his follow members. All efforts to ascertain
the origin of those fires falling, suspicion was
at Inst directed to the uniform celerity das-
played by M. Schaffter in arriving upon the
ground, and this, with other suspicious circumstances, caused him to be closely
watched, On Nov. 2 the efforts of the
watchers were rewarded by th«discovery of
M. Schaffter in the act of placing combustibles saturated with petroleum beneath tho
staircase of IiIb own house, and he was
promptly arrested. Whilo being taken to
the jail he loudly protested his innocence,
saying that be was merely experimenting
with combustible material with a view of
extinguish Ing the lighted mass by a process
known only to himself, and that the experiment had for its solo object the perfection of
tho service of the fire brigade. This story
was credited by a few of his most intimate
friends, but when shortly after being placed
in d cell M. Rohaffter attempted to com ml)
suicide, even these deserted him and joined
in a thorough search of hia house. The result of the Search increased thu astonishment
of everybody. Schaffter'» residence was,
from cellar to garret, found to be a perfect
ersenal ami a well-stored depository of
stoh-n goods. V. capons of all kinds were in
profusion, ammunition in Urge quantities
was packed away iu different parts of the
house, while combustible materials, false
keys, nnd property which had been stolen
frmn burning houses iu Lausanne, Yverdun,
and other places were everywhere to be aeen.
Besides those articles the searchers discovered a sack tilled with notes and documents belonging to the Central Bank of the
Canton of Vaud, which disappeared from
that Institution several months ago.

A young woman giving her name as Mary
Fit/patriek, but having any number of
aliases, was arrested on the north side for
wholesale swindling. She plied ber trade
by moans of an arrangement of dress employed by so-called lightning change artists.
When arrested she wore a black cashmere
dress, a tight bodice of the same colour and
material, and a hat with a wide brim. A
swift displacement of hooks, eyes and buttons, a deft adjustment of unseen fastenings
hen- and there ; a crushing squeeze of the
hat, and the lady stood with a brown woolen
dross with corded front, bodice and s neat
littlo turban upon her head. Another Bet
nf manipulations and the dress was transformed iuto a gown, the turban gave place
to a coif, a chuplet foil from the girdle, aud
the woman stood arrayed as a brown nun.
Ones moie, a tug of tbe skirt, a yank at the
coif and waist, a flash of hands everywhere
ami at mico, and the nun was transformed
into a young lady of aspiring fashion iu
bright coloured alpaca and the original wide*
brimmed hat.
We have always traced with pleasure the
sympathetic feeling that has existed between

eep. dally those of the Western Hemisphere;
as ih" progeny invariably imitates the example of its parent, so do we find it witb our

tier only with this difference, thst they ap*

Into their parent'sihoea " prematurely, and
letting go tlie loading-string'), fearlessly
walkott alone, This is evincible In various
ways, to wit. tho almost simultaneous ad*
^anoe in every branch of -t-cience and art,
and tho judicious adaptation to their own
purposes of the best and inoaf. sterling inventions and discoveries that owe thoir origin
to Old England itself. In nothing has this
been more prominently exemplified than in
tho adoption almost as " with one voice " of
the remedies of Thomas Holloway, the
Pills for the internal, and the Ointment for
the external diseases of the body : no sooner
wore they ushered before the world from
their focal point of origin, 244, Strand, thau
they became with unanimity the household
medicines of Canada and the Rritisb Provinces, and being especially adapted to the
settler's wants, being the physician of the
ttftckwoodsnuin, in regions where the medical
practitioner and the medioiue chest were
unknown, thoy naturally become the only
%theacon fire*" of health for tbe sick and
suffering in their new home in the far off
We learn from statistics In ths possession
of Thomas Holloway, tbat the first settlers
sent out to the Grand Rirer by the New
Kngland Company were required to provide
themselves with a household medicine of
their own choice. This, we need scarcely
add, was soon made and Holloway's two
peerless but simple remedies became the
Saver neglected items in the early emigrant's
store. As communication across the Atlantic became more open and frequent, no sails
were set for America without some portion of
the cargo containing a good supply of these
healing medicaments.
SnoOBrs say wo to this noble enterprise,
which, simple in itself, is benign in Us influences, and has heconie giant in its operations.
