Theie seems to be no talk ol  defeating thc government, and" even  the promised and still forthcoming  railway policy, does not ciea'te' either enthusiasm or antagonism. All  seems to be dtifting and the general  idea is that a month more and the  session will cease without any blue  lights being buincd or bombs exploded. It, seems to be the general op-  ion, that the McBridc Government  has done as well as it could under the  dill cull conditions that it detained  al the time it took charge, and that  mo e time must be given them to.get  everything' shipshape.  tSaWaWSMS^S^SSSJiS^i^^S^SSKSSSSa  HOWLING.

A London despatch says: FLe l'i>t  api earanee of Lady Ross, the wife of  Sir Charles Ross, who is well known  at coui t, created a sensation, for .she  had been so little seen. Her jewels  and gown attracted no little attention, but her shoes won the admiration even ol  royalty.  She is small, rather dainty in appearance, and her bright coloring  was shown to great advantage by  her dress of can de nil nioir*., with  Brussels lace draped so heavily over  the 'whole as ajniost to hide the rich  foundation. Her train was cloth of  silver, and this, too, bore quite a  small for tune in lace in its sweeping  folds.  But her  shoes  were  U13  loveliest  part of her     costume, and everyone  looked al them.   They were of    the  f.iiDSt     white   -kid,  sewn with gold  thread and cut away in delicate .lower patterns to allow the insetting of  I* | opals,  for which stone  Lady Ross is  ������i famous.    The   stones  were  encircled  ������  with     a gold      design  on  the shoes  whi'li was unique.  Some good Residences For Sale  Call and get particulars.  Agency of the Esquimau  & Hanaimo Ry.
