Mons. Gbevy combats the charges of the MacMa
honists against the last Chamber. Those charges
were: " That the Chamber misunderstood the share
of authority which belongs to the President of the
Republic; that the Chamber disputed the legitimate
influence of the Senate; and, finally, that the Cham
ber endeavored to substitute for the necessary equi
librium of the powers established by the Constitution
the despotism of a new Convention. Monsieur
Grevy flatly denies these three charges against the
dissolved Chambers. He compares the France of
to-day with the France of 1819, when the " three
dynastic parties " joined against the republic and
the consequence was, its downfall. He declares that
a Chamber with a majority of republicans can alone
save France, and concludes by thus exhorting
Frenchmen: Ecarlez set mortch tnntmis; vole z pour
les republicainst Reject the mortal enemies of
France; vote for the Republicans.
It must be satisfactory to Monsieur Grevy and his
friends that his campaign against the " three dynas
tic parties " in France has been so triumphant. He
seems, however, to admit that a union of the three
classes of Monarchists would be fatal to the Repub
lic. This is the real danger of the present govern
ment of France. Will MacMahon succeed in unit
ing them? Uieu le tail.'

THE "VICTOR" VANQUISHED.
By the St. raul arrived yesterday we nave re
ceived very important news from the seat of war
in Bulgaria. At we anticipated, in our remarks
last week on the ttrategio situation of Plevna, the
gallant Ozmon did attempt to cut his way out cf
the fortress, but pushed bis onslaught west-wards
towards Widdin on the Danube, not southward
to the Balkans, as we expected bim to do. Periapt
his valiant sortie might Lave been more successful,
had he taken the southern route. At all events,
his doom is cow scaled. The mouth of December
was bis "fatal day." The following telegrami
condense the particulars of the fall of Pltvna
Chicago Dec. 11. The Tribune't London speolal
says : On Saturday after Osman Patha bad found
bis escape impossible, bis army starving and per
isbing with coll, and no hope of success, be sent m
parlementaire to the Russiau Leadquartera with a
special letter addressed to Grand Duke Nicholas,
as chief of the army investing Plevna. The Grand
Duke either declined to accept the letter or to re
ceive the parlementaire, and directed him to bo
escorted to the headquarters of Prince Charles, as
Commander-in-Chief of the allied armies besieging
Plevna. The purport of the letter was a request of
favorable terms of capitulation, and an especial
request from Ostium Pasha to be allowed to surren
der his sword to Grand Duke Nicholas.. This being
impossible, the parlementaire returned. On Sunday,
another desperate assault was ma lc on the Russian
right in which Osmtn Pasba himself was wounded
and about 3KX) men put hort de combat. Noth
ing remaiucd but unconditional surrender, aud
thus closed one of the bravest defences ot modern
' BiciiAittsT, Dec. 11. The report current bete
that Osman Patha'a attempt to break out was
caused by a combined Russian and Roumanian
assault on his positions, ia purely Imaginary. The
sortie was solely prompted by the entire failure of
provisions. Osman crossed the River Vid, and
attacked and took fort Dolny.Fropolje. The Rus
sians and Roumanians were hurried up from
Susoria Bukova. After terrible carnage, Osman
attempted to re-enter Plevna, but It had meanwhile
been occupied by Roumanians from Gravida. Osman,
on finding himself thus surrounded, although woun
ded in one foot, personally conducted the negotia
tions for surrender. He expressly announoed that
he surrendered unconditionally to the Emperor.

The Atlantic and Pacific Ship Canal.
For souk time punt, w have been looking out
for news concerning the result of the labors of
Lk-utenatit Commander Lucicn Bonupaitu Wine,
and his fxploiing party on the Ulbimis of Darien
in tho ln ilea States of Columbia. Wo have ul
leudy expressed our opinion tlml thu cutting of
this Inter-oceanic canul will produce a great In.
fltience upon these Islands, which lie In tha direct
sea route of tdiips from the Intimitis to Eastern
Aia and Japun. We now find tho following par
ugruph on this subject in the San fraucisco JoUr
mil of Commerce:
The Society formed in France a y-ur or two
ago. for the purpose of mirveying for a canal to
unite the Atlantic aud Pacific by the Datieii toute,
is making progress in Its opei atioiiM. Its explor
ers ure btikily at work iu the United States of Co
lumbia, under the direction of Lieutenant Wym,
who reports his confidence that un liiler-oceunlc
canal by way o( Columbia will soon !o au accom
plished fact. He specially favors tlie Columbian
route, becansn it will not require mich rxpeutiivfl
locks as the Nicaragua route, while the lowest
gradients and the narrowest ihthmuscH are also
found in Columbia'
The gentleman who proposes to make this canal
(for our special advantage) is the sou of an IiIhIi
nian, the late Rt. lion. Sir Thomas Wise, of tho
Manor of St. John's, Wutcrford, and Lis mother
was the Princess Letilia Bonapart, nlecit to that
First Emperor Napoleon.
Dit. Muii.tiiKHt. Tlie following from a late New

Vicent Mohabeer, who practised as u doctor
in Auckland and at the Waiwera, has been before
the Police Court, Emerald Hill, Mtlboute, for
practicing in the colony us a medical man without
being legally qualified. The police Kought to
recover 100 for a breach of tho Act. A counts,

with the following Inscription : " Dr. Vincent

rheumatism, dysentry, gravel, and slone in t ti

plate was still on defendant's door. Th pollen
called soveral witnesses, but as a rulfl they all
swore that Mr. Mohabeer had not railed himself
a doctor, lie had stated that he was a doctor
in India, but that he could not be a doctor in
Victoria until he got a certain document from th
Medical Board. The evidence showed that li
had not charged for his advice but for bis medi

Ncuaku Avexce. Very deep, if not loud, and
almost profane, are the complaints that have come
to Mr. Editor " during the past week respecting
the dreadful condition of the upper part of Nuuanu
Avenue. We really have not space to print tbem
all, and ao, to avoid the charge of favoritism, we
omit them all,- but one and give this item in brief.
It seems that in the attempt to mend the road at
the rainy season it has been made worse than ever
before and almost impaseable.
Admiral dk Horsky Tho Western WteUy
Xeics, of Plymouth, England (for some rt-cent
issues or which we are indebted to a Honolulu
resident) publishes th decision of tho Dritit-h
Lords Commissioners ol the Admiralty in the
cae of Admiral De Hor-sey's attack on the Huas
car. Their Lordships fully approve of the Ad
miral's attack and his " putting a stop to the pira
tical career of the Iluuscar ;'' but they consider
that the Admiral might have acted more judicious
ly by parleying with the pirate. We do not ugree
with their Lordships in this little bitof criticism on
the gallant Admiral. If tho Jlwtscur was a
pirate as their Lordship's hold, it was the duty
of the gallant Admiral to blow her out of the
water, and tho pity is that he did not. The Iluus
car, wiites Consul Graham, stopped a Ilritisb mail
steamer and overhauled her mail bacs : took C9
tons of coal and 500 bags from a barque, without
payment and by force carried off a IV-ruvian
officer from a Iii itinh steamer ; and forced an Kng
iish Chief Engineer to serve on board the JIuascnr
against his will under pain of death. If those acts
are not piratical, we know nothing of pirates.
The Peruvian government, nerortbeloss, is not

nothing more lately of the Punic Inscription found I
in 1873 in the north-west of Urazil. Was it j

Museum of liio de Janeiro, succeeded in finding !
the stone from which it was copied? Have Mons-

TilK CUISLHK qi'ESTIOO IN AtMTKALIA. On this
subject we quote the following parsgraph from the
rpeesh of the Governor of Queensland, at the proro
gation of parliament :
' His Excellency, in toe course of bis speech,
was made to say that the first business of importance
to the people of Queensland " and the rest cf the
inhabitants of the Australian continent" was the
Acts relating to the Chinese, or, to quote from the
in the days of Solomon till accidentally discovered
by a Brazilian in 1673. The inscription was
C3pied in the Xovo Mnndv lithgraphed aril ti ans-
ated in to English by the present writer but the
stone was never produced, to his knowledge.
The whole thing may have been a hoax on the
antiquarians. Mr. h. Kenan was ii extacies with
the Punic style of the Inscription. It would be
interesting to have the Madeira liver rock
bierogbyps copied and lithographed. Tboy
appear to be the work of Ameiican. Indians of
a past period. The inscription of the Punic navi
gators closed thus : ' I, the Piifst of Aslarte,
