A Speech by Mark Twain-
On the occasion of Mark Twain's recent visit
to Montreal, Canada, ho was entertained at
dinner, that compliment being tendered him by
150 leading citizens. Tbe ucual toasts tu ' The
Queen " and " The PreHident of the United
States " having been duly honored, "Our Guest"
was next drank.
Mark Twain responded tu thin in a speech that
excited much merriment. He first explained
that his business in Canada bad reference to pro
curing a copyright, facetiously disowning all con
nection with the diamond robbery or dynamite
explosion that morning reported in the news
papers, and thought bis declaration was sufficient
to eet the public right on this matter, inat-mucb
as he never uttered an untruth except for prac
tice, lie then went on to day : I suppose one
must come in the summer to get the advantage
of the Canadian scenery. A cabman drove me
two miles up a perpendicular hill in a elefgh,
and showed me an admirable snow etorui from
tbe hights of Quebec. I could have seen the
enow storm as well from the hotel window, and
saved my money. (Laughter.) I haw the I'lairix
of Abraham and the spot where the lamented
Wolfe stood when he made the memorable re
mark that he would rather be the author of
Gray's Elegy than take Quebec, lint why did
lie say so rash a thing? It was because he sup
posed there was going to be an international
copyright. (Laughter.) Otherwise thero would
be no money in it. 1 was also shown the spot
where Sir William Phips stood when he said he
would rather take a walk than take two Quc-becs,
and he took the walk. (Renewed laughter.) I
have looked with emotion here in your city upon
the monument which makes forever memorable the
spot where Horatio Nelson did not stand when he
lell. 1 have Been the cab which Cham plain em
ployed when he arrived overland at Quebec ; 1
have 6een the horse which Jacques Cartier rode
when he discovered Montreal. (Laughter.) 1
have used them both. I will never do it again.
(Renewed laughter.) Yes, 1 have seen all the
historical places ; the localities have been pointed
out to me where the scenery is warehoused fur
the season. (Merriment.) My sojourn has been
to my moral and intellectual profit. I have be
haved with propriety and discretion, I !..ve
meddled nowhere but in the election. (Laughter.)
I am used to voting, for I live in a town where, Tl
you may jude by the local prints, there are only
two conspicuous industries, committing burglaries
and holding elections, and I like to keep my
hand in it. (Great laughter.) So I voted a good
deal here. Where eo many of the guests are
French the propriety will be recognzied of my
making a portion of my speech in the beautiful
language, in order that 1 may be understood.
(Cheers.) I speak French with timidity and not
flowing, except wheu excited. When using that
language 1 have often noticed that I have hardly
ever been mistaken for a Frenchman, except
perhaps by horses never 1 believe by people.
(Continuous laughter.) I had hoped that mere
French construction, with English word;', would
answer, but this is not the case. I tried it at a
gentleman's bouse in Quebec, and it would not
work. The maid servant asked, What would
Monsieur? " I said, "Monsieur so-and-so-, is he
with himself. '' (Cheers and laughter.) She did
not understand. I said, "(s it that he is still not
returned from his house of merchandise. (More
laughter.) She did not understand that either. I
said : "He will desolate himself when he learns
that his friend American was arrived here, and
he not with himself to suake him at the hand."
(Uproarious langhter.) She did not even under
stand lhat. I don't know why, but she didn't,
and she lost her temper besides. (Cachination.)
Somebody in the rear called out. Qui est dmc
la," or words to that effect. She sail, "Ce'et un
fou. and shut the door on me. (Loud and
prolonged laughter.) Perhaps she was right, but
bow did she ever find that out, for she had never
seen me before till that moment. Hut as I have
already intimated, I will close this oration with
a few sentences in the French language. (Laugh
ter.) 1 have Dot ornamented them, 1 have nt
burdened them with flowers of rhetoric, for to my
mind that literature is best and most endearing
which is characterized by a noble f-implicity. J ai
le beau bouton d'or de nion oncle, mais jc n'ai pas
celui du charpentier. (Great laughter.) Si vous
avez le fromage du brave menuisier ; e'est bon,
mais si vous ne I'avez pas, ne ee desole pas.
Prenez le chapeau de drap noir deson beau frere.
(Renewed laughter.) Malade tout a l'heure
savoir faire qu'eet ce que vous dit pate de fois
gras, revenons a nous moutons pardon, messieurs,
pardonnez moi essayant a parler la belle, langue
d'OHendorff strains me more than you can pos
sibly imagine. But I mean well, and I've done
the best 1 could. (Laughter and cheers.)
" How did you find your uncle, Johnny? "
In applepie order." " How'a that?"
Cruity," was Johnny! neat reply."

It appears then, says the Boston Journal, from
this statement thut in these nineteen cities, in an
aggregate vote of over 01,000, tho majority in
favor of licenses was only 2,122. Undoubtedly
there has beeu a growth in temperance senti
ment which is reflected in these returns, but be
yond that, thia largu vote against licenses in the
eities indicates a reaction against the abuses of
the existing system, which loads many men to
vote " No, "' by way of protest against violations
and evasions of a law, which, if properly en
forced, they would approve. New Bedford
A good story reaches us from Belgium, tbe
truth of which is guaranteed. A banking-house
at Verviers recently received a letter from a bank
at Buda-l'esth. The recipients knew that it re
lated to a matter of great importance ; but they
could not master the contents, as it was written in
Hungarian. Accordingly one of the partners took
a journey to Brussels, but nobody at the bankl
could rend Hungarian. There was still the Aut-tro-IIungarian
Embassy, whiiher the banker be
took hi ui-elf, t learn that there was an attachd
who spoke Hungarian ; but he had g'ne .to Biar
ritz for sea-bathing. Almost in despair, tlie hero
of the story called upon the burgomaster, with
whom be was acquainte J, and related his trouble.
After some thought, his Worship asked for the
letter, and the next day returned thu original to
the gentleman from Verviers, with a translation
in French, in a neat feminine bund. " To what
Hungarian fairy do 1 owe this cood fortune?"
asked the delighted banker. " This it an affair
involving so ao millions, and I shall be happy
to pay a handsome douceur to the trntislator wbo -has
enabled me to get at the meaning of the let
tcr in time to c irnludc the affair." " 1 take you
at your word," replied the burgomarier. (aire
me lO.UOUfr. for the poor of Brusscle, for tbe
translator is none other than the Queen. She baa
experienced a lively satisfaction in employing her
knowledge of the Hungarian language for tbe ben
efit of her subjects." The Queen of the Belglatit
is a daughter of the Archduke Joseph, whose ben.
cficial rule of Hungary is still remembered by the
reofilc ; and she wr.s born in the capital city dur
ing her father's palatinate.
The Speed or Thought. It is one of the naia
sions of science to destroy a great many pet super
stitions, and it appears that the picturesque one
which represents drowning people as passing in
review in a moment or two of time all the event!
of their past life must go the way of many others,
this belief involves t!ic ussiiriiptinn that thought
is intantauaous, or very nearly so. ' But tbie it
proved to be not at all the ease. Thought hat a
maximum of speed, and if ideas could be present
ed at a gt eater rate than this the nind would be
simply unable to receive them. We may illus
trate what we mean by supposing a person stand
ing on a railway platform watching a train slow
ly passing. If the movement of the train is suf
ficiently slow he will be able to see distinctly the
faces of its passengere, but if the speed be acceler
ated beyond a given point tho faces become quite
indistinct, and look mere blurs. Now it it found
that what we may call the wave of thought movea
at an appreciable rate of speed. Helmholtx found .
that it required about a minute to traverse a mile
of nerve ; that is to sty, that its speed is equal to
that of a very fast railway train. The mere act
of recognition of a sound or touch require time,
which is stated at forty thousanths of a second.
Experiments have been made with great care and
accuracy, and their combined result went to show
that the time required for a Mm pie thought it
never less than the 40th of a second. Thit would
give 2,400 simple mental acts in a minute at tbe
utmost speed at which the mind it capable of
working. And it follows that, if drowning per
sons find all the events, and thoughts, and acts of
their whole life pass through their mindt in a
second or two, they must have lived remarkably
uneventful and barren existences.
