mint toward* her bad been unpin
fessional. Not in words ao much us in
tone and sentiment and manlier. I had
treated bar ns I should have done ia
lady iii society who was matrimonially
eligible As things went this was
scarcely tba correct thing to do, especially afler the lalmrious ex,.rise   of
putting on my giant'■ armour   I   felt
lIml slii' Imd done right, supremely
ight, and done ii gracefully ; while I
noted after my kind, neither rightly
nor gracefully She had indeed said
il was pretty of me and kindly ineani ;
but that waa her gracious tact. The
memory of her unnls, apart from ber
voice nnd look, grew nt limes satirical
and disquieting. This, I think, waB
one of the subtile workings of con-
scienec. After s.mie further availing,
the senior surgeon put In his appear-
unco, and in I he course of conversation
I managed to get on the ".object of Miss
Van Meter. I asked hi n what lie
knew of her.
'Not inucli," lie iinsavei-.l, "bill nil
n her favour. She is avell mannered,
self-possessed, skilful, nltentive, and
has an unusual knowledge of medicine
Her nerves arc good ; she helped ate
the other day in a very painful oper
ation. and stood it like a man She is
one of the best nurses I ever came
across.'
•Who is she/"
"Hang it, man, how do I know/"
I confessed I did not know, except
on the general principle that lie was
supposed In know everything; and
there the subject dropped. After this
I saw Miss Van Meter pretty often.
I contrived every means of meeting
lier mul talking with her, and the more
I saw of her the better I liked her.
Tilings had gone "li in thii way for a
month or six weeks, when   one   night
tn. my chamben I   had  another  long
oiifereiice aailli myself. I put the
question, "Arc you in love with lier?"
It avas a serious question and involved
some import ant consequences ; yet in
an instant these wo'ds came into my
mind, and filled it with a sound like
the humming at hm
day :

almost afraid t>o shave lest I should cut
myself, as my hand trembled so. I
dressed with more than my usual cure,
and took nothing for my breakfast
except a couple of strong cups of coltee.
Then I made my way to the hospital,
went in search of Miss Van Meter,
found her in one of the wards, and said
to her,      "Are   you   very   busy  just

" My    name    is    Van

p. Yes."
"Then I am glad to see

expecting you.    I'ouie iu,
I followed liini imo a liny parlour,
exquisitely clean, and quaint as
its owner. The old gentleman went to
summon his wife, and in a very short
time she appeared. She was a little
sweet-faced woman with short white
curls, and a black silk dress figured with
blue tloavers. In neatness, qunintiioss,
and good-nature, she was tin* counterpart of her husband. She made me a
pretty old-lime curtsey as she entered,
and "said, as slur shook my hand
heartily, "I am most happy to uiuke
your acquaintance, sir. Miss \ un
Meter is out just now, but she avill lie
back soon, sir "
I noticed   that they   spoke of their
daughter with a certain  formality and
delicate change of   tone, wliich 1 attributed in part to   my being a  stranger.
and in   part   to the   respect   which n
country   family   always feels  towards
the member that lives   in the city.    I
made myself   aa agreeable  as   I knew
how to  be, and  spent a very   pleasant
half-hour chatting.    Mrs.    Van
then left the room, a little   abruptly I I
thought, and in less tlmntliirty seconds
Mr. Van Meter  followed her.    I   was
feeling amused when   the door  opened
and in walked Miss Van Meter   It avas
the middle of June, am) she was dressed
in white,   with yellow ribbons,  nnd   u
broad-rimmed hat tied tightly on  both
sides.    She was   twenty three, but did
nnt look a day   older than twenty, und
1 wasjust  turned   thirty.    I   thought
her the   loveliest   living picture I had
ever seen.    I told   her so,  as I    kissed
lier.    At dinner it was  curious to  sec
how nervous   the old   folks WOW, bow
proud of their   daughter, how deferential i   they  evidently   worshipped llie
ground she trod on.    1 had to leave by
the four o'clock train to catch the New
York express at Boston ; and Mis- Van
Meter   proposed showing   me   another
way to Eastbyeast borough,  longer, bul
quieter and prettier     While slu   ..ns
putting on her hat and   gloves, I bade
good bye to her parents.
"1 hope 1 have your cnns'itl. rl I
can win herf" I said, ftddresaing them
both.
The old gentleman laughed, ia liercril
his wife frowned, and said—
"James, you avould laugh at n
funeral, 1 do think." Then to me,
'Yes, sir, we both wish you success
We think there is nobody like her on
earth, sir."
"Therein you think ii(*b'. Ihank
you very, very much ; good bye once
more," 1 said, as my beloved came on
the scene.
We soon left the highway and turned
up a lane that ran through a small
plantation and on the high ground.
The view from there was glorious ;
miles and miles of rolling country very
richly wooded. Near to us was a large.
handsome stone house, with a tali
clock tower and beautiful grounds. I
admired the  place   and the   situation
hucrelv*.
"Who lives there, do you know I I
asked my companion.
"An eccentric maiden lady, 1 believe," she answered indifferently
calling my attention to a remarkable
boulder stone some distance ahead.
"A maiden lady, eh? Is she too old
to marry!"
She laughed in her sweet way, and
said,    "Oh no, she isn't fifty yet.'

I'niler these i in iiin-i'iiii es, even war
is regarded ns likely to make a change
for the I letter at least it will make a
change and everyone thinks it avill be
better for himself.   The French people
appear   lo look   at it in this   light  and
seem   careless as  lo  the  nation  avith
which they may quarrel first.    It may
be thai their course of action has been
marked out, and  that their attempt to
frighten  England   out   of   Egypt and
China out of the right to  use her own
property    in  this, however,   they have
recently  given   way-or  to  scare  the

that F'rance means nothing beyond Germany,   and thai she  looks for  the destruction of her great enemy avith the
aid of Russia.    If, for instance, France
was to attack England, Germany's opportunity  avould  at  once  appear, and
she avould nol hesitate to seize it.    On
the other hand,   F.ngland will never attack F'rance without  the cxtremest provocation, and that ran never arise Irom
any discussion aliout   Egypt,      France
avould  fain  draw  Italy aavay from the
Anglo-German alliance, but she is surely
forgetting  the fact   that she  holds two
Italian   provinces    Savoy  and Nice—
and that  Italy regards her  as she does
Germany the present holder of her own
tavo  provinces Alsace  and  Lorraine.
The eyes of  Austria  arc   thoroughly
opened to the designs of Russia, avhich
are clearly set forth   in the secret treaty
revealed by Count Xichy.      Russia had
arranged   with   her   Montenegrin and
Macedonian allies to wrest from Austria
her  recently acquired province in the
Balkans—Herzegovina   and   to   seize
upon    Albania,   lhe   prize  coveted by
Italy.     All   these  things  have tended
more and more to widen the chasm between Germany, Austria. England and
Italy,   and   Russia  and   F'rance.     The
action of  Russian  agents in AfTghanis
tan  has   produced  quite   a   rebellion
there, and the Ghilsais are holding their

of these securities and large shipments
of gold have raised the rate of interest.

unhealthy signs of the times.
lire "speeches     (save  the mark !) the
newspaper* <mly published a short synopsis of the  debates.      Uut  then  we
should lose the   op|>ortimity ol learning
lhe true inv ardness of Mien like " honest
John."    It   has been   suggested to  us
ihat the best plan would be to give  the
orations   verbatim   el  literatim,   becausi
the |H.-oplc would see the results ol their
own   carelessness   or   folly.      Bul   this
again,   would not answer,   because the
newspapers are read abroad and strangers would feel inclined to judge of the
entire  community by the specimens of
eloquence  emanating  Irom  our representatives.    We need hardly repeal our
oft  expressed  opinion  that our parliamentary system is a farce ; that we absolutely pay men handsomely to rob us
of our  money and  lands  and  enable
them ,ro'n lime to time to make handsome   fortunes at the public expense.
Specious  humbugs  like  lohn  Robson
mislead the  ignorant and induce them
to believe that  the  wretched imitation
of a  constitutional government  which
ave possess is, our palladium.    A better
illustration of this cumbersome and use-
less  machine  could  hardly be  found,
than in the present position ofthe leaders, called  ministers,   who are clinging
with  the grasp of despair to the positions they held in  the last Parliament.
They are aware that at least one or two
of them are  detested  by   the   |ieople
whom they pretend to  serve at salaries
of three thousand  dollars a year and
sueh other advantages as they may secure from possession ot office.    It would
he useless to tell  these  men that the
commonest  decency required them to
step  down and out; they  would only
laugh at you ; they know that once they
are discarded  thev are deprived  of a
good living, and what is more important
to small minds, therightto dictate to and
lecture men  very far superior to themselves.    How long they will be permitted to arrogate to themselves the right
to  say who shall   remain in office, will
ave should think,  he settled at the first
meeting  on the twenty-fourth of January next.    There are quite a number ol
aspirants lor office ; some of them a decided improvement on those now holding the positions ; so that,  if there is
anything in the shape of honesty about
the representatives, they will not find it
difficult to select a new ministry.    But,
if the  majority are corrupt and prefer
personal  gain to propriety, the House
must be  dissolved  and the people permitted,  at the polls, to say who shall
legislate for them  in the  next  Parliament.    If a new election  takes  place
ave know of one man—John Robson—
who will not be returned.    The people
of this 1 )istrict—for  which he was supposed to have been elected—are puzzled
to this day to discover  how he came to
have so  many votes.    They have been
comparing  notes  in the various settlements and they can't bring out the sum
anything  like   the   number   reported.
But, he is in Parliament, and he cares
very little about the opinions of his constituents.    We have  often stated that
Mr.   Robson owes  his  position not to
any ability or merit  of his own, but to
the careful touting of interested friends.
During the course of the last Parliament
we heard them state boldly, that he was
the brains of the entire ministry !    We
have heard the same class of people say
—anticipating his  ejectment from the
existing  ministry,  that he would be a
dangerous man in opposition.     All in
telligent men are aware, that neither of
these statements is correct.    John Robson  as a  minister  is  an unmitigated
fraud ; he only possesses a little shallow
cunning, but he has no brains.    As for
his power of doing mischief it would be
confined to " splitting on his pals,"and
in that case as dangerous to himself as
to those he  would  injure.    As to anything he  would  be  able to do as a
speaker, that is   completely    "played
out."   He is merely stereotyped and
his speaking, as a plain member, would
only form a subject for ridicule.    The
greatest blessing that eould arrive  to
John  Robson  would be his expulsion
from  the  House  altogether; his presence there will always remind members
of the corruption of the last four years.

—in fact none  at all - that  Americans will
oonaent to a reciprocity treaty.
Perhaps tin-  Amerfoana would aot more
boldly than   they an-  doiny now it  tbey had
a fleet and proper ooaat defencea, At present it is doubtful if they could hold their
own against even Canada, if the fishery
'|in .I Ion led to war. The inaga7ines and
newspapers are full of the subject of the de
[eneelaaa oonditlon of New York, Philadelphia and the Atlantic seaboard generally,
and Captain Griffin, U.X. S., an expert says
that iu case of ■ war witb England, a Brit
Lab Boat oould destroy five billions worth of
property iu a week. He ur^es the construction of a navy, ol ooaat defences, including
torpedoes in American harbors, as soon as
possible, but admits, that these things cannot be dona inside nf three years. So let
Canada go ahead for that time -but after
Wort hawk.
Mi. James A. Fraser, the local member
for Guyaboro*, N. s., is alwayaaooeaaibie to
American reporters who want to learn about
seoeaaion and the breaking up (if the Con
federation. Mr. Frnaer, with Mr. Fielding
—is the leader of the secession party iu tho
Maritime province*, and say tbat at the
next general elections, which he thinks will
be held iu January, Nova Scotia, New
Brunswick and Prince Kdward [aland will
return a majority pledged to repeal of the
Union. He saserti that the life blood of the
Maritime Provinces in men and money U
being   taken   away to   build   up the west,
which haa no interest in common with the
east, and that if repeal is uot obtained di-.sa
tiafaotlon with the present order of things
will become profound and dangerous,
Meanwhile Montreal is building its annual
ice palace and preparing for its carnival as if
volcanic fires were not raging next door.
The Knights of Labor are very active an'd,
though it is the dead of winter, they are organizing strikes in every direction. In this
respect Canada is not Idle, There are, it
seems, 150,000 knights iu the Dominion, one
thin! of them RomanCatholica, though the
order la condemned by the Church. At
least, Arohbfahop Taacheroau aayasn, and he
ought to know something about it. Nor do
Protectant ministers display any more
friendliueaa towards the Knights, who, how
ever, march onward profoundly Indifferent
to anathemas or advice. One of Henry
George's most ardent and intellectual .sup
porters is iu hot water for bis advocacy nf
the tights of labor. Amongst other clergy-
men of different denominations who supported George for Mayor were Rev. Heber
Newton, Kev. Mr, Huntington, Itev.
Father I'belun, and Kev. Dr. Mclllynn,
parish prieat of St. Agnea Church, Heber
Newton, Congregationallati and Dr. Me*
Glynn, Roman Catholic, arc men of undoubted ability, and bave certainly used
their pens aud lifted their voices in behalf of
tbe poor and oppressed iu years past. Heber
Newton has no superior to overhaul him,
but Dr. MeClynn belongs to a church remarkable for its stern dttBoipllne. it is
known that Archbishop Corrlgan remonstrated with Father MeGlynn on several occasions, an.l Wrote him circular letter.1, from
hia magnificent palace Fiftieth street, but,
Father McClynu paid noattcnlion. Indeed
ha grew more Eealoua than ever in the cause
nf labor and throw more fire into hia denunciations of capital. At length the prelate
complained of him to Roma, and Roma lias
Ordered Father MoGlynn to repp.rt there at
once, It la said Father UoGlynn is hesitating whether to obey the aummons or defy
the crafty Italians, ff he adopts the latter
course he will be excommunicated, no doubt,
but, if so, he will be the means, in all pro ha
btlity, of forming a schism in the Catholic
Church in the United States, aud perhaps in
Ireland. The Irish iu America are not very
zealous Catholics, and v, bile fierce on the
national i|i)estiou, it isa trifle that would
make tbem break with Home, The general
Opinion, however, is that Dr. MctJlynn will
go, and like Father Curei, the astronomer,
will apologize and become a better son of
the Church than ever. They have a way in
Koine of making recalcitrant clergymen see
things from the point of view of Cardinal
Jacobin!.
There was a pauic on Wall street yesterday. It would do your heart good to see
a panic on Wall street. You may have seen
a thousand madmen in one large hall of a
lunatic asyl* tn, assembled to settle the
affairs of the universe, but tbeir conduct
would give you but a weak idea of the stock
exchange on Wall street. Such gesticulating, such shouting, sueh foaming in the
mouth, such a tossing of hands towards
high Heaven, it is not easy to imagine,
much less describe But it seems there was
method in all this chaos, when it told you
that mora than a million shares changed
haul ..nd thousands of poor people throughout the country were ruined. In truth1
Wall street is merely the convex dde of
Heber N.-whnn and Father McUymi.

LETTER,

, Deo  ll, 1880,
Sine.' 1 last wrote you Congraaa met. and
amid it:, usual cordial greetings and floral
tributaa, read tbe Premden't message ami
went to work. Uu opening day, large
crow-Is of people, not deterred T>y unpn-piti-
OUS weather, tilled the galleries ind looksd
down witb Interest endamagement upon the
ICenea enacted on the floor. Iu the House
for an hour before the gavtl fell, groups of
members crowded the clerk* roonn,blockaded
the aisles, chatted, laughed, exchanged oon
gratulationa on success in the recent election.-,
or oondolenoea upon defeat. Victors twitted
the vanquished, und the defeated members
jokingly commiserated victors upon
their failure to throw off the burdens of
public life.
The Senate, which is never given to demonstration under any cirouinatances, met
quietly and shook bands as if it had only
separated yesterday, instead of four months
ago. Hut theie loenea and bappeninga
are now things of the pant, and I will uot
ih. ell upon them.
As to the President's message which
Senators and members refrained from com
monting upon until after tbey had read it
themselves, tln-re are various opinions. The
Republicans are disposed to criticise Its
length and some ol tbem accuse Mr. Cleveland of having sacrificed conciseness to a
desire to plea.se conflicting elements of his
party. Their criticism is not more severe
however, tban opposing political sentiments
is usually regarded as calling for.
The Democrats are disposed to praise the
document with the exception of that part
relating to silver, whieh creates some diver*
sity of comment. Thu tariff reformers con
tend that the President ha_ committed himself to reform, while some of tbe piotection-
ists regard his views as conservative enough
to suit them. When Chairman Randall was
asked how he liked the message he replied
that he waa very well pleased with it.
"Whit do you think of the tariff section of
it?" "Oh I am very well pleased with the
message,' the leader of the protectionist
Democrats repeated, "That is the only
opinion I have to give."
Members of Congress always think at the
beginning of a new session that they arc
going to do a great deal of work. Each man
hopes to get aome action on his pet project.
Those wbo want to reform tbe tariff are particularly eager and energetic. The strong
position taken by the i'FKident on tht* ..in,
JeotS has given them new courage. The
members bave cone back free and ready to
work with no fear of a campaign before them
and there is every reason why much should
be accompliahed, A great deal of the lung
session is always taken up by committee
work ; now, this work is done and every
thing is read)' for legislation.
It is thought by members of the House
Judiciary Committee that the Edmund's
polygamy bill will Ik; passed this winter in
a modified form. The Edmund's bill would
confiscate the Church's property as well as
disestablish the Church, but the bill as
modilied by the House committee will respect
the rights of property, while it will .lis
establish the Mormon Church and pluck
polygamy out by the roots.
It appears that Capt, Kads and his associates have concluded to give up their plea for
Government aid, and will undertake to build
their .ship railway across the isthmus with
their own money and in their own way.
Thus their company will be independent,
and can look every body squarely in tbe
face whether the enterprise succeeds or fails.
Tiie many annoyances incidental to Government supervision of the work will be avoided
and all the money made will go into the
pockets of the stock holders.
The Senate has shown great gallantry by
paying its attention first to ladies. The
House Hettled down to business with the
subject of tho Electoral Count, hut the
Senate, lead by Senator Blair of New Hampshire, who advocates temperance, national
education and female suffrage, took up the
proposed amendment to the Constitution extending ibat boon to women. It wasa singular fact that while Mt. Blair was eloquent!) pleading their cause, not more than
a score ni ladies were in the gallery tn smile
down gratitude upon bis effort,
The Senator proposes to ask a vote on
thequeation at an early .la;, and whatever
may be the result, women who want t■» vote
cannot complain of ueglect \ t..r this speech
in behalf of their necessities was made on
the third day of the session.
Senator Edmunds is aiso early in the field
with a memorial favoring a constitutional
amendment that will enable Congress to
make marriage and divorce laws uniform iu
all the States. How will tbe legal fraternity
down East and West like this ?

Bowever "glorious" the fruits of the revolution may be held to be from particular
points ot view, tbey are undoubtedly dla-
aatrona to industrial enterprises. .-_ very
striking Illustration of th.- losses which the
the great French Revolution entailed upon
Prance has just been furnished In the case
of the uploittithii by au Knglis'i com pan) of
some silver-lead mines in the Cotea-du-Nord,
which were forcibly abandoned during the
Keign of Terror. Theae mines are hituate in
the neighborhood of 8t, Brieuc, and up to
about 1784 they were   worked   at   a   profit.
giving employment to nearly a thousand
miners and Bineltera ; but the works were
abandoned at the time of the Revolution.
and. though tradition hu-. handed down
vague rumors of their value, their actual
site hud abnoht been forgotten, the buildings
ha. e fallen Into decay, uud the ground
overgrown witli bush. Lately, however, an
English gentleman cann- to hear of the reported existence of abandoned workings,
and, after a careful survey, bought the
property, placing it in the hands ofa small
company called the "Cotea-du-Nord -silver
Lead Mines (Limited)" to explore, The
result hus been tbat not only hitve the old
working-, been traced out and partly opened
up, but that evidence of the richness "t the
ore has been found In the discovery, beneath
a heap of rubbish and vegetation, of a large
mass, weighing man) tou.i, of solid silver,
whieh had been extracted from the ore and
left behind iu the hurried abandonment ol
tin* mines, It la, perhaps, appropriate that
thia good fortune should have befallen itii
Knglish company, since the mines themselves
were originally discovered by Cornish miners
who had gone over to France with ,lames
II., and who were struck by tbe strong intli
cations of mineral wealth which met their
eyes aa they traversed through Brittany
with him. Thus, by revolution Franco undid the benefit which an English revolution
had accidentally- conferred upon it. -

Spnakiugon Tuesday at Manchester at

why he was not a total abstainer, the Bishop
of Manchester said that many years ago he
signed a conditional pledge. He went on
very well until towards the close of the
second year, and then he broke down utterly.
His doctor told biln he would either have to
give up half bis work Or take some light
stimulants with his principal meals, ft wns
ridiculous to think of giving up halt his
work, an.l therefore he tried the stimulants, and be never bad tbe symptoms
again. He supposed he was one of those
Who had not the power of easily digesting

greater part of the intellectual work of
Kngland belonged to the seme class, and it
would be monstrous for these men either to
commit anionic or give up hall their woi k
because they were bound then to take the
stimulants. He. however, observed a rigid
rule never to drink alcoholic liquor except
at meal times, never to take "nips" ur ic-
fresberh between meals.

nu; JEWISH  RACK,
Speaking on Thursday evening, the 8th
inst., in tT.o Preston (iuild Hull to a very
large audience, the liiahop of Manchester
said that he dearly loved the Jewish race.
If lie bad to select the race from whieh tube
born, hu would linve selected to he horn a
Jew, cheerfully taking part in their reproach
for the high honor of belonging to tbe blood
if Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, of Peter
and Paul, and above all, ol One who was
greater tban either. Sir Walter Scott must
have had D similar feeling about the Jewish
people, else be wouhl not have put iuto the
month of Rebecca the Jewess thai nmgnili
cent speech in wliich she told the Templar
that before the ancestors of the upstart
northern nobility were known at all, her
fathers were bidden to stand nearest to the
congregation to the Vision. The treatment
ot the Jews was a pitiful, a horrible story.
Tbey were murdered, robbed of their goods;
their bodies were given over to the tormentors, tbey were driven hither and thither,
and found a home nowhere. Wc in Kngland
Had treated the Jews as badly aud barbarously as any of our Continental neighbors.
But times had changed, and he hit proud to
i know that Kngland had removed all the di**
(abilities from the Jews, and now treated
them as she treated the favored members of
her family. He spoke ol the great men the
Jew§ had produced : they were not merely
statesmen, but prophets. Among others be
named the late Karl of Beaconsfield, whose
name was received with loud applause. Long
centuries hsd passed before the Jew got full
justice, and it was but natural that he eould
not so speedily forget bis wrongs and the
terrible persecution to which he had been
subjected. If Christians had received the
same treatment he questioned whether thoy
would have had tho toughness of fibre to
survive ; but if they had, would they not
have hated the name under whioh they had
been so cruelly wronged ? He bespoke the
sympathy aud help ot hia countrymen for
their I*raelitish brethern.—-Seioish Chrxtniclc.

The Supreme Court of the German empire
has finished the trial of the journalist Pohl
of Kiel, who has been charged with high
treason. The proceedings were carried on
with closed doors, even lawyers being e\
eluded. Five witnesses were put upon the
stand —at attache of the War Department at
Berlin, three naval oflicers and the former
Capt Sarauw, recently convicted on a similar
charge, and at present an inmate of the
prison of Halle. Tie appeared in court in
the uniform of a convict. Pohl was found
guilty of having forwarded to Sarauw sixty-
live secret reports for the Kreneh Uovern-
ment concerning the plan of mobilization of
ths -Herman fleet audits fighting capacity,
and also details in regard to submarine mines
and torpedoes. He was sentenced to nine
years' imprisonment and ten year's deprivation of civil rights.
(Ireat progress has been made within the

Pacific cable scheme. In addition to the
particular- already published, it has b.en
ascertained that articles of incorporation
have lieen registered In London, the company
being formed under the name and title of
"The Pacific Telegraph Company, limited,'1
with a capital of 1*2,000,000, in shares of $10
each, for the purpose of establishing, main
taining, and working other communications
between Croat Britain, Australia, New
Zealand, and other islands aud places in the
Indian Ocean, Africa, and America, The
company, whLh is a strong one, is composed
as follows ; Lmd Milton, Sir. J. P. Cony,

In the most eastern part of Africa are
Somatiland and Oallaland, which, though
naturally among the most accessible parts of j
the continent, have been almost wholly
closed against white men by native hostility.
It was there that Kinzlebach, Saceoni, Von
der Decken, aud other brave explorers met
their death, and the saint natives have now
killed Mr. .Tuclhke, who, with Dr. Peters
was the animating spirit ofthe Crrmau cn
terpriseB in East Africa. By treaties witli
native chiefs these two men had nominally
acquired for Germany within the past two
years regions aliout as large as the State of
New York. Mr. .Tuelhke's success in dealing with the Somali chiefs was regarded hy
the sanguine East African Society as proof
that the Somali coast waa at last opened to
the world. He hail hardly been appointed
(jovernor of Somali, however, liefore the natives killed him. It used to lie said that
every new Governor of Sierra Leone on his
way out passed the old Governor going home
in his coffin. The fact that Count Pfcil has
been promptly appointed Governor of Somali
in place of the ill-fated .luelhke seems to indicate a purpose to provide an adequate supply of material for further tragedies.

A pamphlet has been published in Lima,

At the Cabinet meeting the order of busi
ness iu the coming session of Parliament was
revised. The session will probably open
with introduction of a Coercion bill, including special provisions for the suppression of
boycotting. Local government measures
affecting Kugluud aud Scotland will have
precedence over legislation on tbe same sub
ject for Ireland. The result of this will be
tbat ik. I rUh business exoept such aa relates
to coercion uud to the bill extending the
scope ot the Ashbourne Laid act will be
transacted. The Hartiugtoii section will
give thorough support to the coercion
measure. It is reported that the Marquis of

Amongst men who have forced their way
to fame and fortune, we may name, us an
i-.ample to all, worthy of imitation, the
famous and justly celebrated Thomas Hollo
way, bettor known throughout the •'wide,
wide world" for his Pills and Ointment. Of
these medicines it is not our purpose to
.peak-— wo are not writing a putt, but solid
plain facts, to show what can be done by
great strength of mind ; and thnt what OUS
man has done another may do, provided
that he has the ability and determination to
use it with all bis soul !
We road of the (ireat Napoleon, whose
ambition was to conquer, but Holloway bas
done something else, for, instead of shedding
oceans of human blood, he has cured his
thousands, and spread great jo\ among the
poor sons ami daughters of affliction by his
wonderful Medicines ; aP.hough he does not
pretend to "raise the dead," yet he has
given strength to the halt and soundness to
thelantS ] and if he had not "opened the
eyes of the blind," be had soothed the pain
worm ; ami comforted those on the brink of
the grave: and iu th'r four quarters of the
globe his preparations bave found their way
-■-not by the force of the sword, not with
the aid of legions, but have been silently
borne on the boSOm of old ocean in our huge
merchant ships to every corner of the civilized world where sufl'ering man is to lie
found.
But to do all this gigantic work, to accomplish so wondrous a deed, required much
thought and much energy, for without tluse
combined, this mighty work could not have
In .'I.   accomplished,    And   thus   he   did it.
