It will be noticed by our extracts, that the Rus-

Step by step the several European powers are
coming into the war arena, and the circle is steadily
wideniing so as to embrace them all. The air is full
of rumors, all going to confirm the above assertion.
Austria is arming as a precautionary movement,
and has posted twenty-five thousand men on she
Servian frontier, ready to cross when tLe Russians
cross the Danube. There is the reported-discovery
of a plot to destroy the Suez Canal by blowing up
its banks with glycerine, and England is to take ad-
vantage of the discovery to post an army of twenty
thousand men in Egypt for its protection. A third
of the force is to be Moslems from the Bengal
army.. An English protectorate over Egypt is one
of the probabilities. There is a story that an extra-
ordinary appropriation of ten million pounds will
be voted by Parliament at its coming session for
military exigencies. A treaty of offence and de-
fence is said to exist between Germany and Aus-
tri'a, The oi der for the mobilization of the troops of
-the latter causes intense excitement in Vienna.
Russia nowv proposes the temporary occupation of
Constantinople, to be evacuated when Turkey pays
her indemnity and gives satisfactory assurances of
reform. But, on the other hand, England refuses
to consider anything which cripples the Turkish
power in the Black S, a. Italy is already in alli-
ance with Germany, while France is under strict
espionage. Thus it will be seen that Europe may
become the theatre of a general war before this
Turkish issue is over. The tendency of the differ-
ent powers to drift towards it as to a whirlpool is
too plain to be overlooked. This very slowness of
the general motion is ominous. It is not-a question
of boundary as in most wars, but of rights, of pre-
judice'a'nd of passions. If we are sagacious, we

LAST CRUISING RACE R. B. Y. C. FOR THE
On the 6th instant the last appointed Cruising
Race, for the season, of the R. B. Y. Club took
place, the first part in such weather as would have
daunted the heart of only fair-weather Yachtsmen.
The course was from a Stake-boat opposite the
R. B. Y. Club House, Hamilton, through head of
the Lane, passing Hog-fish beacon on the starboard
hand, round St. Catherine's and into St. George's
Harbour, to finish at Ordnance Island, distance
about 21 miles.
At about 11'30 a.m. the Psyche went away with
a good N. W. breeze which took her through the
passage, and somewhat favoured the Gull also on
her course, but soon after the Undine, Nautilus and
1 Nameless were sent away in a deluge of rain, a ter-
rible squall broke on them, in which the wind
backed to about W. and gave them some work to do
before they opened the sound.
The next in order of starting was the Zephyr and
just before she ought to have cast off one more
pull" at the jib halyards brought everything
down by the run and a quarter of an hour was con-
sumed in refitting, while the Minerva, in a most
magnanimous manner, delayed her departure until
the Zephyr was away, when she started in pursuit
of the lot; but the Psyche had made good use of hei
favourable chances, and was well away with flow-
ing sheet, before any of her antagonists had negoti-
ated the head of the Lane.
All however, although some experienced hard
times, safely squared away for St. Catherine's and
raced after the fleeting Psyche, the Nameless through
some unfortunate accident being unable to set hei
squaresail in this long run did not hold the place
she would otherwise have done.
Off St. Catherine's, squaresails were housed and
all headed for the entrance of the Harbour and
thence for Ordnance Island where the race finished
very prettily, the plucky little Psyche taking firsi
honors and being the only one so ungallant as nol
to give place to the lady who graced the cruise
with her presence, and was very respectfully and
closely attended by the Commodore who had time
enough, after waiving the right of precedence, to haul
his jib to windward and see the Zephyr, Nameless
Gull and Minerva follow in his wake, and also ob.
serve the beaming eyes and encouraging smile
which "Great Relief" after the contest brought t(
Some dare to say that had the course been re.
versed the conclusion would have been different, b(
this as it may, none can deny that it was a granc
cruise, and all hope to have many more.

THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY AND THE
The House of Assembly on Wednesday last re-
sumed in Committee of the whole House the consid-
eration of the Resolves of the 27th June, bearing on
the Governor's Message, No. 20, relating to the Re-
ceiver General's letter on the subject of the Public
Books of Accounts. The 1st and 2nd Resolutions were
affirmed, as was also the third with the exception of
the concluding words and ought not to be sanc-
tioned by the Executive of these Islands," which
were, at the suggestion of the mover, struck out.
The fourth Resolve, with the exception of the words
"and sanctioned" between "initiated" and "must"
in the second line, which were struck out on motion
of Mr. S. C. Outerbridge-also passed. A Commit-
tee of five members were then appointed to inquire
into and report on the most expedient mode of fur-
ther procedure in the matter with power to employ
Counsel if they deem it necessary. The Committee
we are informed met at the House of Assembly on
Friday and determined to employ Counsel. The
Committee is to submit their report- to the House
STOREBREAKING.-Sometime during the night of
Friday last the Store of Mrs Hodsdon, situate on the
north-east corner of Reid and Burnaby Streets was,
entered by some thieves. The entrance was effected
through a door situated in the back of the premises,
the iron plate against which the bolt of the lock shot
was bored round, by means of a brace and bit, and
removed. The thieves after evidently closely exam-
ing Mrs. Hodsdon's store passed into that of Mr. W.
Masters which adjoins and which was minutely ex-
amined. As there were no goods missing from either
store, the object of the thieves was unquestionably
money, of which, we are glad to say, they found
but little. It is to be regretted that up to the time
of writing no clue to the perpetrators have been
discovered. About a month since an attempt was
made to enter the premises of John Harnett, Esqr.,
on the opposite corner of the same streets. The
attempt was made on a back door of the premises
and the same description of tool used, but as the
locks were better protected, the thieves were foiled
in their purpose. In both instances we think it was
pretty evident that the depredators were novices in
the use of the brace and bit. A carpenter's shop in
Reid street was entered on the night of Mrs. Hods-
don's robbery as well as on the night of the attempt
on Mr. Harnett's and braces ani bitsstolen there-
from. The brace and bits used at Mr. Harnett's were
left there and claimed, but not so at Mrs. Hodsdon's

a lot of women's and children's clothing were sent
over to-night. All the principal towns in the coun-
try have held meetings and are moving in the mat-
ter. The Militia have volunteered to the Governor
to do police duty.

THE NEW RACE COURSE AT PROSPECT.
Yesterday we inspected the new race course now
in progress of formation at Prospect. As our read-
ers are aware the Races are to come off on Friday
the 20th instant, full particulars of which appear
elsewhere. We must confess that whenwe first saw
the Programme and learnt that the meeting was to be
held at Prospect we could not bring ourselves to be-
lieve that even a fair course could be made there,
but since our inspection of the ground and the work
I that has already been done we have been forced to
I arrive at a different conclusion. The turns appear
gradual and well rounded, and a hill that appeared
somewhat formidable is being cut through.
Through the kindness of one of the Stewards we
are able to state that the enclosure will be on the
Observatory Hill from which a good view of the
finish and nearly the whole of the course can be ob-
tained. Altogether we doubt if a better site for a
race course could be selected, and we trust that every
support will be given to the meeting, that entries for
the various races (which appear to suit horses of all
sorts and sizes) will be numerous and that the
Stewards will be enabled to offer stakes well worth
winning. We are authorised to state that they
will be happy to alter the conditions of any race,
or even to add another to the Programme if it can
be shewn them that by so doing the number of en-
tries will be augmented or the success of the meet-
All owners and riders must be members of the
Bermuda Hunt Club, which we believe implies that
all persons who do not already belong to the Club,
and who may wish to run horses must send in their
names to the Master, the Honble. H. Fowler, (who
is also Honorary Treasurer to the Races) who,
should there be no objection, will see that they are
We observe that the races open to small horses
have this year been reduced to 15 hands-a very
proper condition, we imagine-when we remember
that many of the best English race horses are only
15 hands 1 in. in height, and that it by no means
follows that because a horse is not very big, he is
not very good.
We believe we are correct in stating that the
course will be open to all horses that are to run in
the races to practice on from Monday next the 16th
July inclusive, and that all subscribers to the Races
of ten shillings and upwards will be admitted free
into the enclosure.
We would remind our readers of a sporting turn
of mind that all entries must be RECEIVED by the
Honorary Secretary by 3 p.m. on Monday next the
16th instant, and we hope to be able to publish a
list of them in our next week's issue.
The order of running will only be fixed the day
before the Races so as to enable, as far as possible,
horses entered in more than one race to run for all
We have been requested to draw attention to the
alteration made regarding the Somers Hurdle Race.

hands and under are allowed 10 lbs. The Pro-

R. E. THEATRICALS AT PROSPECT.
We had the pleasure of witnessing an interesting
performance given by the 32nd Company Royal
Engineers in the little Theatre at Prospect on Tues-
day last, when for an evening's Entertainment noth-
ing could have been better timed, or more suitable
to the hour, than the Drama of "Time and the
Hour." At the opening we see Franklin's beauti-
ful Villa, and we regret that our limited space will
not admit of our giving the plot in detail.
The whole of tiie characters were throughout
very creditably- stained, Corpl. Pollard as Sir
Philip Deverell; Corpl. Bermingham as Mr. Mont-
gomery Brown (troubled much with boots and collars
which did hurt,) and Corpl. Wheeler as his laughable
better half, were simply excellent. The Sparrow of
Sergt. Lacey was not a sparrow of an ordinary des-
cription, and that bird as we know must now have
a much greater value than before in our estimation.
'Mr. Franklin (Corpl. Sadler), his son Charles, (Corpl.
Verney), were portrayed in quite a gentlemanly
way. George Aylmer (A. Davis) and Lucy Fairfax
(Bugler J. Storr) made love in the true old English
style. This lad (a new beginner) shews great apt-
itude as an amateur. 'Dan Medlicott (F. Sheay) was
very good, and Marian Beck (Mrs. A. Ewan) sus-
tained her character in a most charming and pre-
Afterwards we had a musical entertainment by
Captain L. J. G. Ferrier, Sergt. H. Lacey, Corpls.
Risk, Clark and Brunt, (whom we must certainly
speak of in the highest praise); Sappers Horne,
Ryan and Dixon, and Mrs. A. Ewan sang excellent-
ly; and the Entertainment was brought to a close
to the entire satisfaction, we think, of every person
in the audience.
The management of Sergt. Holton, Corpls. Pol-
lard and Mann must certainly not be forgotten for
the excellent Bill of Fare which they provided.
REVD. DR. FOGGO'S INTENDED LECTURES.-We
are gratified to learn by a notice elsewhere that the
Evenings of 19th and 26th July and 2nd August
have been selected for the delivery of the Revd.
Dr. Foggo's Lectures on Shakspeare, and that the
spacious room in the upper portion of the new
warehouse of C. H. Robinson, Esqr., situated in
the rear of his Front Street premises-the entrance
to which is from Reid Street-is the place chosen
for their delivery. We have no doubt that a great
treat is in store for those who should attend these
without adequate means of defence and without aid.
They will certainly be overpowered and murdered,
as the Indians declare their determination to take
the fort and murder the men. It cannot be hoped
that the Indians will again spare the women and
children, after the losses they must suffer in captur-
ing the fort, as the men will fight to the last. Our
informant says that he is reliably informed that the
Indians did not fire a single building or destroy
any property, but cleaned the country of stock,
which they have driven to the south side of Salmon
river. They seem to hope that they will ultimately
be the undisturbed proprietors of all the property
the whites are now compelled to abandon. They
seem to think, and not without reason, that before
the country is regained an army must be created
and a long and doubtful campaign passed through.
The Indians have now their principal camp and
headquarters on the Salmon river, just before the
mouth of a small stream called Skookumchuch,
while the stock is gathered and pastured on an ex-
tensive triangular shaped region formed by the Snake
and Salmon rivers and the high mountain range
lying about the sources of the Fayette and Weiser
rivers. Here there is abundant pasturage for summer
and winter, and here they will doubtless make their
final stand. In contradiction to the previous reports
that the troops behaved badly, our informant says,
by citizens who were in the fight he is assured that
the troops, though they allowed themselves to be
decoyed into ambush, displayed throughout the
action the utmost gallantry and fought like tigers.
About twenty-five or thirty soldiers were killed in
the same number of minutes. The situation in
Northern Idaho far exceeds in gravity any Indian
outbreak of our day, and it will tax the best re-
sources of the Government and of all the people im-
mediately interested, to subdue the Indians and
restore peace to the country. The Indians know
the army on this coast is a skeleton and the people
are helpless from want of arms.
A Portland Press special to the Oregonian, just
received from Lewiston, June 21st, 8 a.m., says
sixty-five volunteers were to proceed from their de-
fences at Mount Idaho to reconnoitre the position
THE ST. JOHN FIRE.
Further Details of the Great Conflagration.
ST. JOHN, N. B., June 22.-The upper limit of
the fire runs southeasterly, entirely across the city.
It begins at York Point Slip, crosses Mill street to
George street, follows George street to Union street,
and then runs up Union, both sides of which were
destroyed to the corner of the Chipman property,
near the head of Germain street. It skirts Market
square, all sides of which were burned, to King st.,
the northern side of which is destroyed half way up
to Germain. Thence the line of destruction contin-
ues up the south side of King street, nearly across
the city, to Pitt street; then turning to the south
runs along Pitt to St. James street, and through tha
latter direct to Courtenay Bay. Every building
south and west of the track indicated above is des-
troyed, except the Court House, the jail, the Marine
Hospital and one or two sheds about the barracks.
Burned to Death.-John E& Turnbull and his son
James attempted to rescue a partly insane lady
from the flames. She struggled and held back until
their clothes caught fire and they were forced to
drop her. She was burned to death in the street.
A drunken man was left in the gutter on Prince
William street and perished. The remains of two
persons, burned beyond recognition, are in the dead
house in Smyth street. At the early stags of the
fire a woman's horror-stricken face appeared at an
upper window, with the form of a child in her arms.
A wave of flame swept past the window and the mo.
their and child were seen no more.
Other deaths reported are the following: Garrett
Cotter and Peter McGovern, killed by a falling wall;
Thomas Holmes and James Kemps, drowned in at-
tempting to save goods in an overloaded boat;
Mrs. William Coholan supposed lost; Mrs. Lyons
and Mrs. Cassidy, supposed to be burned in Mrs.
Lyons' shop ; Samuel Corbatt, furniture maker and
a youth named Fox. Many other deaths are ru-
moured, but it is hard to ascertain the facts, as it is
very difficult to find a-well-known citizen who for-
merly resided in the burnt district.
The Meyor and General Committee met at the
Mayor's temporary office this forenoon, where he
was kept busy attending to the wants of applicants.
Several committees were appointed, the chief one
being to look after the people in need. Telegrams
were read from Corporations of the principal cities
of the United States and the Dominion conveying
power to draw at sight for sums ranging from $100
to $20,000, expressing deep sympathy. The banks
of Nova Scotia and Montreal opened their offices.
A man-of-war will be here in the morning from
Halifax. The artillery and infantry have been
called out to protect the stores and goods. The
liquor dealers have been requested to close their
shops. The people are camping out on vacant lots.
Many are leaving the City in trains and vessels.
GOVERNOR WADE HAMPTON.
The Governor of South Carolina attends a Military
Reunion at Auburn, N. ; He makes a Patriotic
and everyway notable Speech; Sentiments that
honor the man who honors his State and Country.
AUBURN, N. Y., June 20.-The celebration of
the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Shields Guard
attracted a large concourse of spectators. Gov-
ernor Robinson, General Shields and Governor
Wade Hampton were present. The procession
to-day embraced military, firemen, civic societies,
visiting organizations, invited guests, &c., and
marched to Burt's Grove, were T. M. Pomeroy
delivered the welcoming speech, followed by Gen.
Shields, Gov. Robinson and Gov. Hampton. Gov.
Hampton remarked that he came to Auburn solely
to join in paying honor to the gallant soldier and
old friend, Gen. Shields, and bring from South
Carolina that flag which waved over him in those
glorious battles on the hills and plains of Mexico--
the battle-flag of the Palmetto regiment. Gov.
Ilampton continued as follows:-
Your distinguished Governor has been pleased
to allude to the contest in South Carolina. That,
my friends, was not a political struggle. It rose
far higher than any such contest ever waged on
this continent. It was a contest for civilization,
for home rule, good government, for life itself. It
was a contest waged by the people of South
Carolina-not as demagogues would tell you,
against Northern men; it was a contest waged
against carpet-baggers, and when I say carpet-bag-
ger, I mean by that, thief. [Applause.] We do
not call any Northern man, any Irishman, any
German, any Englishman who settles in our midst
as an honest citizen a carpet-bagger. We welcome
such with open arms. We tell them to come to
our genial skies and fertile soil-come one, come
all-and pledge them, in the name of the State,
a hospitable and warm-hearted reception. We
do not ask whether they are Republicans or Demo-
crats. We did not wage a political canvass. We
were fighting for every interest dear to freemen,
and, thanks to brave and true men and the glorious
women of South Carolina, this war for good Gov-
ernment was successful. They have established it
in every department of the State Government.
They have accomplished this, and they now propose
fulfilling, to the very letter, the pledges I made
and appealed to high heaven to witness that they
should be carried out. I declared that if elected
1 would be Governor of the whole people of South
Carolina; that I should know no race, no party,
no color-that all men who stood on the soil of
South Carolina, native or foreign born, white or
black, should be equal before the law, and so help
me God it shall be done. [Enthusiastic Applause.]
I am glad to say the bitterness which marked that
strife is passing away, and I say to you men of
New York as I say it at home, I owe my election
to the colored men of South Carolina. [Applause]
Thousands of them voted for me knowing that I
had been a good friend of the race; knowing that
I was the first man after the war to recommend
they should be given the right of suffrage; and
have never yet changed my opinion on the subject.
Knowing this they sustained me in large numbers,
and 1 am happy to say that nearly all fears of the
more ignorant are passing away, and they are
satisfied that they will be dealt with as citizens of
South Carolina. We intend to try and elevate
them, educate them and show them the responsi-
bilites as well as the blessings of liberty. We want
them, as other citizens of America and South Caro-
lina, to be worthy the great boon of citizenship of
this great Republic. My friends, I thank you for
this most cordial greeting, doubly gratifying be-
cause it is the voice of New York reverberating to
South Carolina. I came, as I said, to do honor
to my distinguished friend, Gen. Shields. He
wore blue and I wore grey; but we can let the
curtain drop over those years and go back to the
time when the flag borne by him waved alike over
men of the South and men of the North, and we
can look beyond to the future when, through all
time, that flag shall float over a free, prosperous
and reunited country. [Applause.] I say this
to you, a Southern man, a rebel, for when I fought
1 fought as hard as I knew how against you, and I
say, also, that if that flag floats, as it should do,
over free and equal States, if it shall be the symbol
of liberty, equality and justice, all the States and
every man of the South will honor it and love it
as of old, and the time may come once more when
New York and South Carolina shall stand shoulder
to shoulder against the common enemy, and their
blood mingle upon the soil. [Applause.] My
friends, I shall bear this cordial greeting back
home with me to the little Palmetto State, and
assure our people that your hearts here throb kindly
for us. I trust in God that a better future is be-
fore the whole country, and that we shall have
peace, prosperity apd liberty to every man upon
the continent. [Applause.]
THE GRAND UNION HOTEL, SARATOGA, CLOSED
AGAINST THE SONS OF ABRAHAM.-Great surprise
and indignation is manifested in the United States
and Canada, especially among the Hebrews, in
consequence of Judge Hilton having given positive
orders to the agent of the Grand Union Hotel at
Saratoga that no Jews should be entertained there.
The hotel is the property of the late A. T. Stewart,
of New York : Judge Hilton is the manager. Mr.
Joseph Seligman, the well-known banker of New
York, with his family, was in the habit of annually
staying at the Union, but on reaching the hotel this
Spring he was informed that positive instructions
had been received as above, and that consequently
Mr. Seligman and family had to seek hotel accom-
modation elsewhere. All the prominent Hebrews
in New York look on it as a slander to the
whole race, and seem unanimous in the determina-
tion to cease trading with A. T. Stewart & Co.
The cause of all this trouble is said to be the result
of a quarrel at the Grand Union, last Summer, be-
tween Mrs. A. T. Stewart and Mrs. Seligman. Mrs.
Stewart, it is said, was insulted by the latter lady
and, in consequence, had given orders this season
that no Hebrews should be entertained at the Grand
Union. It is believed that the proprietors of the
hotel have made themselves liable to the penalties
of the civil rights law.
BERMUDA ROWING AND CRICKET CLUB.-The final
heat between Mr. Steevens' and Mr. Gray's crews,

provision or matter of any kind calculated to mis-

himself that whenever Baptism is to be adminis-
tered during Divine Service there is nothing what-
ever objectionable-nothing unpleasant to the feel-
ings of his congregation, in his saying at the end

THE INDIAN WAR,
SAN FRANcISCO, June 22.-A telegram was re-
ceived at the army headquarters this afternoon
from Genl. Howard, dated Lewistown, 20th. He
reports that Perry's loss in the engagements of the
17th instant, is one officer, Lieut. K. Heller of the
Twenty-first infantry, and thirty-three' men. Heller
was placed, wounded, on his horse by Captain
Tremble, but was afterwards killed. The people at
Florence report that they have effectually blocked
the Indian trail towards the Little Salmon and
Weiser. Capts. Perry, Tremble and Parnell report.
ed that the wounded are all doing well. Perry's
command is still at Fort Idaho.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 22.-A press despatch from
Boise City says that by the arrival here last night of
a courier the previous reports of the Indian out-
break, near Salmon river, are substantially con.-
firmed. The scene of the first massacre was on Sal-
mon river and its tributaries, that stream coming
in from the northern side, draining Camas prairie
and the neighboring mountains. The settlement
called Camas prairie covers the foot bills to the
north of Florence mountains, extending several
miles northward into the plain, which lies between
the Florence mountains and breaking down of the
table land, called Craig's mountain. Mount Idaho
is about the centre of the range of settlements on
the Camas prairie, situated at the foot of the Flor-
ence mountains, sixty-five miles from Lewistoni
Idaho settlement is on the Salmon river and its tri.
butaries lie to the south and southwest of Mount
Idaho, at a distance varying from 15 to 30 miles.
The Indians did not kill the women and children,
but allowed them to be taken under the escort of
friendly squaws to State Creek, which thus far is
left undisturbed. At State Creek the whites have
fortified themselves in a stockade fort, into which
have been received the wives and children of the
murdered men, together with the families of the
men who escaped massacre. Gathered in this place
are the following persons: Mrs. Henry Elfers and
two children, husband murdered at John Davis
creek; Mr. Sherwood, wife and grown daughter;
Hiram Tilman, wife and several children; Mrs.
William Osborne and five children, husband mur.
dered at Harry Mason's on Salmon river; a sister
of Harry Mason, murdered in his home; Mrs. H.
C. Brown, husband murdered at his store on Sal-
mon river; Mrs. J. J. Manuel and two children,
Husband murdered at White Bird Post Office; John

Volunteers going to fight the Red Savages.-SAN
FRANCISco, June 22.-A Press despatch from Boise
city, this evening, says: Twenty-five armed volun-
teers under Capt. Orlando Robbins, an experienced
Indian fighter, will start for Northern Idaho, where
the settlements are threatened by Indians. They
have fifty stands of arms for the settlers. A few-
hundred stands of arms belonging to the Territory
are at the disposal of the Governor, but so many
exposed settlements are asking for arms and am-
munition the supply is likely to be soon exhausted.
Volunteer companies are being constantly organized
in the various settlements. At Idaho City a com-
pany of sixty men was recently formed, but none
of these companies are able to move until provided
with arms and ordnance stores.
The outbreak is said to be the sequal of aggres-
sion by the whites on Indian hunting grounds and
of unsuccessful efforts on the part of the Govern-
ment to induce the Indians to live on a reservation
Science has busied itself lately in discovering
many vegetable monsters. It is startling to read
now and then about great open-mouthed and most
gluttonous flowers, supposed to be growing in unex-
plored lands, which are capable of devouring the
unwary traveller if he approach them too closely.
Of course in the best modern text-books of botany,
such as "Brown's Manual," these romantic stories
are not told, and we are put off with more simple
accounts of the voracity of plants. The learned
Dr. Brown, for example, who gives a careful digest
of all the most recent information on this matter
in his work above-mentioned, would have us be-
lieve that the vegetable kingdom produces no
more 'savage plant than "Venus's flytrap;" but
for all that lovers of the marvellous will persist
in clinging to their faith in the possible existence
of floral man-eaters, whose digestions are equal to
tougher food than flies. Be that as it may, a Bel-
gian botanist, we read, reports from Nicaragua
that he has discovered "a member of the Phyto-
laceus family" which is gifted, if not with cannibal,
at least with most aggressive or combative propen-
sities. Those who dare to touch it will get a shock
as sharp as that of a powerful electric battery, and
he must be a bold man indeed who ventures to pluck
a leaf from its branches. In fact, we are asked to
believe that this wonderful plant possesses a power
of self-defence like that which makes the electric
eel such a disagreeable creature to meddle with.
How the announcement will be received by the
scientific world we cannot say. If that which is
stranger than fiction be true, then nobody need
scruple to accept the discovery of the ingenious
Belgian Fs a matter of firmly-established fact. In-
deed, it is said that the plant is so full of electric
action that when the mariner's compass is put near
it a deviation of the needle takes place, and that when
a magnetic indicator is deposited in the centre of
the plant an uncertain tremulous movement is kept
up. Considering the value or electricity to civili-
sation, might not the qualities of this strange mem-
ber of the vegetable world-assuming it to exist-
be adapted to some useful purpose ? Scientific
travellers in Central America would do well to
make further inquiry into the matter.-Daily Tele-

The Indian deficit-An Immense Indebtedness. -Of
the $25,000,000 which the Secretary for India is
authorised to raise for the Indian deficit, $12,500,-
000 will be added to the Indian funded debt. Lord
Salisbury is empowered to raise the other $12,500,-
000 on Treasury bills. Lord Hamilton, Under Se-
cretary for iidia, stated in the House of Commons,
on 21st, that the Government accepted this latter
power on the distinct understanding that it only be
used when they could not possibly sell their bills.
By that means they would, on the one hand, be able
to keep the silver steady, and on the other hand,
they would not add to the permanent Indian debt
in this country. He pointed out that the bills sold
here by the Indian Government for all practical
purposes might be regarded as silver. The Indian
Government was in this unfortunate position. If
.they forced their silver upon the market when there
was no demand for it, they reduced the price of sil-
ver and gave rise to the fluctuations, which were most
injurious to the Eastern trade, and if they borrowed
money in this country they only put off the evil
day. It has been, therefore, suggested that they
should issue Treasury bills reversible from time to
