The Port of Madagascar.
The occupation of. T&aataT maj be described,
ruth tLe London Daily News, as an invariable
iccidtnt cf a French attack upon Madagascar.
Th town vas captured and occupied by the
French in 1&29, and it Las always been consid
ered by them aa important, no let, by reason of
its beicg the chief commercial port of the island
than cn account of its btrategic advantage. It
was Ung ago described by the French traveler
Fontmichel as the uio.-.t important iint in the
entire island by reason of the bafety of iu an
chorage, the trifiing expense which would be re
quired to place it in a respectable state of de
fense, and the favorable nature of the country
f.-r the cocstructiou of outlying forts. Never
theless it wa taken easily by the French on
the occasion referred to. whereas the attack upon
Foule Folate a week or two later met with a de
cided repulse. Mr. LHi- f-IU u that on visit
ing TamaUve in 1S53 i h.uI it empty the
natives having retired into the interior to fortify
theu.-rt.-lve against a reported English invasion.
The native white flag, L r, vas still flcatiu
over the fort, and as tnc vuyagers approached
the town their eyes met the grim sight of skull
of French and Englishni.ru, killed at the time of
the joint unsuccessful attack in lSio, fixed on
poles nar the anchorage. The narrative of
thin visit presents bome curious tokens of the
bpirit of stubborn, albeit at times mainly
passive, resistance which letnw characteristic of
the peopl. A caaoe full of shoeless ana siock
iaglei natives, whose whole attire consisted of
A hat fcf plaited grasi or ruahes and a white
scarf, paddled forth, officially, to examine the
vessel. The chif men spoke English, though
imperfectly, and upon hearing that the vessel
only bore a petition from the merchants of
Miuritim praying for the renewal of trade, gave
an aniwer which show that, though the Mala
gasies were ready to execute a strategic letreat
into the interior, they had. at all events, no in
tention of abandoning their logical position.
Mr. Sibree describes Madagascar as having bat
few indentations, considering its great extent of
shore line, the island being OSO miles in length
from north and south, with au average breadth
of 25) miles, which implies a total area of nearly
four times the extent of England and Wales.
Along two-thirds of its eastern side the coast is
almost a straight line, without any inlet ; for
Tamatav and Foule Pol nte. though tha former
affords excellent shelu-r fr vessels, are only ;
open roadsteads protected by coral eefs. An-
tongil Bay, however, is on this side, and is a
d ;ep and wide inlet of great capabilities, ruu
cinj, as it does, northward for about fifty mile.
The population of Tamatav is estimated at
about C,fXl persons, of whom a considerable
portion are Lritish subjects. The port of Tama
tav is aboat 2X miles ouly from the capital,
Antananarivo, which is suppo.-w.-d to have about
100,000 inhabit uU, and is the largest city in
the island. It Ins b.vn almost rebuilt during
the last twelve or fourteen years, the old timber j
that section of the city was to sit on Mrs. M
louey's front htoop and settle his eyea in posi
tion. He didn't have to gaze at anything in
particular. That was an accomplishment he
did not possess. He simply wiggled the stump
of his tail and waited for developments. The
developments generally came in on the first
train, and consisted of small boys, cats and
dogs, men and women. The cat would sit there
unmoved, occasionally revolving his eyes into
fantastic positions, in order to convince the
assembled multitude what sort of a circus he
r ally possessed. At night he uplifted his voice.
He had two voices a still and small voice,
like that of Mr. Tilden declining the nomination
for 1S4, and a large, whole-souled, expansive
voice that surpassed the combined effect of thun
der and a fog-horn. The still, Ftnall voice usu
ally wandered forth into the soft night just after
dn-k. The large voice did not get abroad until
about 2 a. m. Then it staid abroad until break
fast time. Sometime Mrs. Maloney's Thomas
would experiment with bo;h voice simultane
ously. The effect cannot be expressed. The
nnal cause of tleuth wns a luuduble attempt to
pa-.s un ler the wheel of a street-car while it was
in motion. He was buried in a pine coffin with
a white ribbon around his neck. The coffin w as
lowered by the widow's eldest son into a grave
three feet deep, in the rear of the family man
sion. Fifty people were present at the funeral,
attracted by curiosity and the fame of the won
deful cros.s-eved cat. Exchange.
THE E5TANCIA TRAGEDY.
One of the Participants' Account of the
Santa F'e (N. M.). August 2J. James G.
Whitney, one of the victims of the Estaucia
land grant tragedy, arrived here at midcight last
night, having made the trip, a distance of Co
miles, in a spring wagon. He was in good
spirits wht-u he ai rived, and since has been
rapidly g.tii.iug. His wounds are not danger
ous ratliT a remarkuble escape for him. One
bullet mtf-rt-d his chin, glanced along the jaw
bone without a fracture, and lodged under the
ear, whence it wns easily removed ; another en
tered his back near the Fpine, passed und r the
muscles of the skin, glancing on a rib and came
ont under tin iir'ht arm. The statement of
Whitney and his men throws new light on the
tragedy, and will be read w ith interest on the
Pacific Slope, where the family is so well known.
In a test case involving the rights of squatters
on Spanish laud grants, the Supreme Court of
the Territory recently decided in favor of J. R.
Whitney, brother of the wounded man, and
Franklin H. Starr of IJoston. J. G. Whitnej- and
Alex. Fernandez, as representatives of the for
mer two, paid squatters for their improvements
and took peaceable possession of their respect
ive ranches ou the Estaucia grant. They made
au appointment with Manual B. Otero, also n
squatter, to meet nt tin; Estaucia Springs ranch
and agree upon the price oi his improvements.
The first meeting was cordial enough, but after
entered the ranch cabin, his manner changed
and Otero told Whitney that he and his men
must vacate the place at one. Whitney replied
that the law was on his sid and in turn ordered
Otero and Henriquez out of the house and off
the premises, nt the same time drawing a re
volver and holding it down by his side at full
arm's length, Lr, Henriquez sti pped near
Whitney, cocked his weapon within two feet of

Mr- Astor's New Yacht.
The rivalry which has long existed among
millionaire yachtsmen, to bo the owner of the
fastest and at the same time most elaborate pleas

by the entrance of a new competitor for acqnat

The Kaffi King1 and Queen.
As for the Q'ier of Kaffa, says a writer iu the
Petit Journal, I was never able to see her, any
more than the King. Kaffe is a land of myste
ries; no one living there ran see the King. When
the Ministers or grandees of the kingdom desire
to consult their monarchs, they enter the royal
hall walking backward, and clad in skins of
wild beasts, until they draw near enough to a
gTeat curtain, behind which the King is con
cealed. If the King wishes to go out, he is covered
with a great sack and placed upon the oldest
horse that can be found. Then the four great
est dignitaries of the kingdom hold the reins,
and a troop of eunuchs, who serve as an escort,
drive away all curious people with their whips.
There are not many curious people to be thus
driven away, however, for any person who could
be convicted of having seen the King, e en iu
his sack, advertently or inadvertently, would be
immediately put to death. Exchange.

features of the present methods of conducting
these sorts of exhibitions that are repulsive to
well-meaning individuals, and that have au in
jurious effect upon the general welfare of socie
ty. This part should be, as in most cities, un
qualifiedly condemned. But if the completeness
to which the Boston representative of fistic cul
ture has carried himself in the past few years
and even if the financial value of such a high de
gree of i hysical accomplishment .will operate
to banish that bane of modern American life,
the pocket pistol, from the highways aud by
ways of the community, and teach men to rely
more, for the redress of personal gnevanees, up
on these less hainit'ul weapons that nature fur
nished to all her children, it would then appear
that the extraordinary performances of the pres
ent head of the science of "slugging"' would not
be without compensating results in their influ

Ten years ago that man was a smiling clerk.
Care had never touched him with her paralytic
hands, and rosy dreams were his in the morning

cheese with an inward rejoicing in the thought
of the 50 cents that would line his pocket after
the year's campaign was over but alas ! step

A Rival to the Opium Habit Effects of
Everybody i3 familiar with the abuse of
opium iu its various forms, from the fash
ionable victim who is a slave to the hypo
dermic needle to the degraded outcast seek
ing forgetfulness in the Chinese opium
"joint." Of hashe't-sh, or Indian hemp,
little is heard, the victim of this drug be
ing comparatively few in this country,
though its use is common enough in India
and the east generally. But there is an
other drug for some time after its discovery,
some fifteen years ago, considered compar
atively harmless, and which is just begin
ning to receive the attention its baleful ef
fects merit. This is hydrate of chloral. A
well known physician of 2se.w York, in
speaking on this subject with a Tribune re
porter, said : "Chloral hydrate stands firei
in the list of hypnotics and to overcome
pure aud simple sleeplessness is without a
rival. When it first came into use much
was expected which experience has failed
to verify. It is not to any extent an ano
dyne; its 9imply the best hypnotic known
aud the most deadly, "lire opium habit is
easily acquired; indeed to some tempera
ments its cautious medicinal use is peril
ous, from the readiness with which the
drug is resorted to in every trifling illness
and the fatal h:ibit formed. But it needs
no bitter season of pain and suffeiing to be
come habituated to the use of chloral. So
softly, so gently, so gradually tloes its sub
tle, fatal chain bind its victim that he only
realizes its power when too late to break
the bonds which bind him. Chloral is re
sorted to for an ordinary attack of insom
nia, and perhaps small doses are taken for
a few days, the result being sound, refresh
ing sleep with none of the evil results com
mon to other narcotics. The period of
sleeplessness past, which may be the result
of overwork, business anxiety or nervous
prostration, the drug is abandoned and all
goes well for a time. Sooner or later sleep
lessness returns, chloral is resorted to, kept
up for a longer time and taken in larger
doses. It is again abandoned for a time j
only to resume its sway, and so slowly and
surely the habit is formed that renders
sleep impossible without chloral, which,
like all narcotics, must be increased in
quantity ns the system becomes habituated
to the poisonous effects.
" The larger class of victims of the chlor
al habit are men who lead sedentary lives
and who from temperament and the nature
of their work are peculiarly liable to suffer
from sleeplessness. One of the most nota
ble examples of the baneful effects of the
chloral habit was Dante Gabriel Itossetti,
who, during the latter years of his life was
accustomed to take enormous doses, reach
ing a total of nearly 190 grains daily. For
many years he took chloral regularly, at
first in small quantities, but gradually in
creased the dose uutil his power of resist
ance was gone. His life was darkened by
a power he fought against in vain. His
latter days were spent in solicitude. He
became a recluse and a hypochondriac,
filled witlj groundless fears for himself,
cherishing unfountlod suspicions agaius this
best friends and admirers. Dr. Maudsley,
the Knglish alienist, stigmatizes chloral as
'chrystalized hell' and condemns its use,
even in disease, except to tide over some
pressing emergency; and there is certainly
an increasing reluctance on the part of phy
sicians toprescribe chloral except in ex
" Unlike opium there are, as a rule, no
unpleasant effects, no reaction following the
use of chloral. It simply produces perfect
sleep, or the best possible imitation of
dreamless rest, with no headache or sick
ness as a reminder that the slumber has
been purchased and the debt must be paid
for. It is paid later on and the interest de
manded is health, hope and often life it
self. " Kxchange.
be but a passing fancy, that might be oblit
erated by travel. The disconsolate young
man was sent to China; but before starting
on his enforced journed he saw his sweet
heart, and they exchanged vows of constan

month ago Miss Summerfield concluded her

Her lover returned to Philadelphia last week

All the schools of the Kingdom will soon be
again opened, and it will not be inappropriate
to offer our young student readers a little advice
about the prosecution of their studies. There is
nothing on earth that is so important to a
man or a woman ia this age of the world as a
good, thorough education, and all young people
of any spirit or enterprise cannot fail to see the
necessity of constant and persevering devotion
to study, not only during school hours but at
home. If there is any excellence which entitles
a young person to the applause and admiration
of all their acquaintances, it is the constancy in
study, w hich is sure to lead to a noble and suc
cessful life. As an example of what great ex
ertion is required to raise one into prominence,
we quote the following comments relating to
Mr. George Augustus Sala, one of the greatest
of Loudon journalists : " His career has been
remarkable from the commencement, and fur
nishes a striking examph? of pluck and honest
work. He is generally supposed to be gifted
with a sort of intuitive knowledge of every sub
ject under the sun, enabling him to dash off au
article ou any theme at a moment's notice, w ith
out the smallest mental effort. It is true that
he wields a facile pen ; that -Thackeray, refer
ring to his abilities, once humorously d-esrribed
him as a horse big enough to pnll any shay
about.' But he rarely gets credit for the years
and years of laborious study by which he has
qualified himself for the exacting duties of his
profession. Still less do people realize the im
mense amount of unseen work which is neces
sary to enable a public w liter to keep abreast
with the times. Mr. Sala is a voracious reader,
and can show folio after folio filled with extracts
iu his own hand, extending over many years, on
political and social questions of the day, iu
which the result of his extensive and varied
studies are caiefnlly arranged and codified for
)-efrc-nc. These voluminous note-books may
be called the stock-in-trade of his art ; for
though he poss sses in a remarkable degree the
gift of a retentive memory, he is too much a
Blaster of his craft to rely upon it for facts, and
his carefully indexed lnemomnda form an indis
pensable aid to his daily work.
''It is said that his article, The Key of the
Street," which first brought him into notice and
attracted the attention of Charles Dickens, was
the outcome of his having had to sp nd the
small hours of a Summer mm ning in perambu
lating the streets, after being accidentally locked
out of liis house. At all events, it was a turning
point in his life, and from that time forward he
became a constant contributor to Household
Words,' and soon made his mark.
" Notwithstanding the strain of his journal
istic work, which includes the well-known page
of ' Echoes of the Week and th ' Play
houses iu the London Illustrated News, be
sides other regular contributions to current liter
ature, he has published a small library of
novels, stories, essays and travels, and has veu
perpetrated a burlesque, half a pantomime, and
an adaptation to the English stage (at the Sur
rey) of ' Les Freres Corf es.' "

A Cross-Eyed Cit's Burial.
The widow Maloney, who lives in a two-story
brick cottage on Frankfort road, near Lehigh
avenue, yesterday buried a Thomas cat that was
a source of genuine pride to the neighborhood
in which he dwelt. The cat in question was
bottailed and had lost one leg in an election
riot. To his otb'r misfortunes, which were suf
ficient to bring tears to the eyes of an old maid,
had been added a total deprivation of one ear
and an entire lock of hair on the head. The
hair had been swept off in a collison with
a pail of hot water, and the ear was severed by
a boy who lived iu the sate block. To cap th
doleful climax the cat was croswyed. had a

counted upon the toes of one foot. It therefore
happened naturally enough that Tom, vhich was
the 'hort' for the name ot the Widow Molon
ey's prize, soon after his birth, which occurred
six years ago, got to be the standard
cariosity of Lehigh avenue up as far as
Seventh street, and on Frankford road to the
old bridge. Th perversion of the sight was

Comment on the Soston Decision.
New Voi k, August 23. The Herald says
editorially: When the anti-Chinese bill
became a law, China prohibitionists tri
umphantly assumed that its apparently
stringent provisions would prove an effect
ive bar to the admission of every Chinese
laborer to this country, and would exclude
every Chine.se merchant and non-laborer
not armed with a certificate from the Chi
nese government, but serious inroads upon
its stringency has been made in every case
in which the law has come before the courts
or Ihe Attorney-General for interpretation.
The courts on the Pacific slope have decid
ed certain classes of Chinese seamen are not
prohibited from entering the country, and
that a certificate is not essential in the case
of non-laborers, while the Attorney-General
has held that the law does not prevent
Chinese laborers from passing through the
United States from one foreign country to
another. The most important decision re
lating to the stringency of the law is that
just rendered in the United States Circuit
Court at Boston, which holds that the act
does not apply to persons of the Chinese
race who are not and never were subjects
of or residents within the Chinese Empire.

Philadelphia, July 23. Fifteen years ago
Maggie Summerfield, a very pretty girl,
wis connected .with Mrs. Drew's Arch-street
Theater as a ballet dancer, aa'was her sis

He paid her constant attention, and it be

Nothing can be more notable than the differ
ence between individual iufluence, as it is to be
observed among all c'asses of people in every
walk of life. There are some fortunate people,
who are always bnppy and contented and always
making others feel pleasant aud cheerful. There
is something almost mystical about them.
They seem to compel admiration by virtue of
some intrinsic quality of soul, even though the
exterior person may be even ugly and repulsive.
There' can be no doubt but that the most en
gaging and durable beauty is spiritual, or per
haps more properly mental. Thoughtful young
gentlemen will bo able to recall many ladies of
their acquaintance who have not the doll-llko
beauty or symmetry of form aud feature which
is ordiuarily termed beautiful, lovely, elceltra,
and yet who have that attractiveness and power
of eliciting attention which fairer complexions
or more regular profiles often lack. As a gen
eral thing, it will be found that young men and
women with strong minds aud warm sy mpathies,
full of life and vigor and cherishing all that is
truly loveable and grand, without being influ
enced by selfish or sordid considerations, are
most admired by their acquaintances and most
capable of exciting profound respect and true
affection among all sorts of., men. - We find this
illustrated in the experience of almost every per
son. A circumstance of this kind is finely set
forth iu a contemporaneous account of Chopin's
love for George Sand, the well-known and justly
renowned French authoress. ' How often,''
says a writer in Temple I5ar," ''does it
happen that trifling circumstances have
Rn important influence on our destiny?
Chopin one evening ascending the stairs of an
aristocratic friend, heard the rustling silk of a
lady's dress behind him, and a perfume of vio
lets overcame him, so that he instinctively felt
an attraction which impressed him ominously.
He did not turn round, however, but sat quietly
in the Countess' salon, listening to the convert
sation, and it was not uutil a great number of
people had departed that he went to the piano
and before the more intimate friends of the
house began improvising:. When he had done
the violet perfume rtvereame-him again, but the
lady whose dress seemed the i source of this all
pervading fragrancy never "approached him,
although her dark eyes seemed to pierce
his very soul. A few minutes later
Liszt advanced towards him, that very
lady on his arm whose few but refined,
flattering words, pronounced with that deep,
warm, sympathetic contralto organ of hers, quite
upset the exciteable young pianist's brains. I
need not say that this was Georges Sand. His
i love for her, after two of his countrywomen had
treacherously jilted him', was deep and true
whereas, her love for him was passionate,, wild,
j uncontrolled, and went the way that such ont
j bursts alwoys go. He loved her without exag
i gerated protestations to the end of hi life, her
straw fire rose up like a column toward heaven,
aud burned itself out in no time. She was the j
woman of whom Alfred, de Mussey, another of
her ephemeral flames, said: "If 1 no longer be
lieue in tears it is because I have seen her cry.
