FOREIGN NEWS AND NOTES.
An entirely novel cartridge 1ms
been tiiod in America. Accoiding
to the imontur the cartridge will not
heat the gnu, it is self-ejecting, 1ms
twice the propelling force of powder,
and is much cheaper. It will also
cost very much less than metallic
cartridges of .gunpowder, and will
not be injured by water. Its ma
terial, mode of preparation arc secrets,
but in appcarnce it is paper pulp
soaked in some explosive material,
and pressed into si hard roll. The
ball is attached to the end of the
roll, and the whole thing leaves the
gun together, on the sky-rocket
principle. It may be adapted to any
gun, and is to revolutionise tiic
ordnance departments of the world.
At the trial the inventor fired off the
ball cartridges into u, spruce log Sin.
thick. The ball, it is said, passed
entirely through the log and a 2in.
plank behind it, and flattened against
a wall. After firing twelve rounds
out of the same gun there was no
apparent heat and no fouling. -Home
An extraordinary creature was re
cently captured at Gong Gong,
Victoria, which some people declare
to be the original of the many
"bunyip" stoiies which every now
and then crop up in different parts
of the colony. It is about four feet
in length, and has four legs, web
footed, and a snout somewhat re
sembling that of a pig. It is covered
with a coat of feathers, those in the
tail being six or seven inches in
length, but getting shorter and liner
as they grow along the back towards
the head, until they terminate on
the shoulders and head in a kind
of down, dark blue hi colour. The
hinder part of the body is covered
with scales similar to those of a fish,
and the tail, which comes back
over the hinder parts of the body, is
divided into two parts, each pari, be
ing about 8 inches long and -1 inches
broad. The stranger has greenish
eyes, and appears to be amphibious,
a3 it has just come out of a large
dam near the railway line. The
monster was disabled by a charge of
shot, and the person who shot it
advanced to despatch the thing,
when it seized the slock of the gun
and squealed like a pig. The skin
lias been carefully preserved. II

The famous wooden nutmegs of
the Yankee have been outdone at
last (says the Melbourne "Herald")
and the ingenuity of Connecticut
must pale before the genius dis
played by the people of Zanzibar.
Those clever moitals supply the
London maikct with a large propor
tion of the cloves used in commerce,
and several recent shipments have
been found to contain a heavy per
centage of artificial cloves neatly
manufactured by machinery. They
were made of pine, stained u dark
colour, nnd had been perfumed with
the essence of the spice sufficiently
to make them pass muster.
The Oamanli observes that Tur
key cannot remain indifferent in the
presence of the policy pursued by
several European Powers to extend
their colonial dominions. War, it
says, may be averted in Europe, but
European States are preparing to
dispute their superiority in dibtant
lands. Then with regard to the
Tonquin expedition, the Empire of
Amiain is so close to the British In
dies that the presence of the French
flag on the coasts of the Chinese Sea
may become the cause of u fresh
struggle between England and
France. Recent events have proved
that Germany is not willing to re
main indifferent. With regard to
Africa, both France nnd England
will soon perceive that their oc
cupation is all but consolidated.
The Mahdi of the Soudan, in spite
of the reported victories of his op
ponents, is holding powerful posi
tions, which, if England means' to
take from him, will necessitate strong
forces. Spain 5s protesting against
the invasion of English influence in
Morocco. Germany keeps an eye
on the Congo, and is treating with
Spain for the acquisition of the island
of Fernando Po. Home News,
