"Hands Oil The Tad lie."
Considerable sensation win caused in
Melbourne on Friday by tbe publication of
tbe following paragraph in the Aye: "11 is
somewhat strange that little or no notice
has as yet been taken in Australia of the
recent appearance among us of two French
Government ollicials of high standing in
this country. Moth gentlemen, it is well
known, arc here upon confidential missions
from the French Government, and they do
not deny the tact, inasmuch as they an
nounce their business upon their visiting
cards. In Europe the arrival of any person
of note in the military or diplomatic world,
in a foreign country, is generally an absorb
ing topic of covcrsation. Australians, how
ever, do not seem to understand that a
great European nation does not send confi
dential agents upon .special missions without
having some ulterior object, in view. The
secret is easily explained when the missions
are considered in connection with recent
events in Paris and Sydney. The French
Government is determined to send out to
the islands in the Pacific 80,000 of the
worst criminals. The Premiers of the Aus
tralian colonies meet in Sydney, and an
nounce their determination to resist the
attempt. France orders a strong Heel of
men-of-war to proceed to the Pacific.
Baron Michel, formerly a naval officer, who
served in tbe Crimean war, and is at present
attached to the oilice of the Minister of
War, is sent to Australia. Then follows
M. Cormeaux with a mission for the Min
ister of Marine to the colonics. What docs
it all mean !'"
There is a rumour in town that M. Cour
meaux, who is now in Sydney, is proceeding
to Noumea for the purpose of going to the
iSrew Jlebredes. and the Islands, to hoist
the French flag; and the French Govern
ment is justifying its action upon the ground
that England lias broken the compact by
having recently taken possession of the
Tsland of Koluniah, which is "2QQ miles
distant from Fiji. Several Melbourne
papers are sending special correspondents to
Noumea to watch the movements of the
French Government agents.

Another Sect Jtlsinj-.
A few weeks ago a man refused to take
an oath as a witness in one of the London
Police Courts on the ground that he was a
"Cosmist.' I have seen a programme of
this latest of the religious and seini-religiqus
bodies that are so numerous in this country,
and I reproduce its principal points for the
benefit of any who are seeking for a new
religion. The motto of the Cosmists is
"Deeds, not creeds;" the principal, the
service of humanity is the supreme duty.
"The design of Cosinism is to join all men
and women in one family, in which the
principle of equity, together with that of
brotherly love (that is, love of the human
race), is the predominant one, and the moral
and material welfare of all, the sole aim
and purpose." The Cosmists are enjoined
to act a follows : 'J o give one another aid,
both material and moral. To cultivate all
their qualities. To contemplate all man
kind as brethren. To be courteous and
forbearing to each and all. To practice
charity, without publicity or ostentation.
There is nothing very new in these ideas,
but they show how dissatisfied many are
with our existing civilization, and as such
they may be recorded as among the curious
phenomena of a curious age. What with
secularists, and collectivists, and anarchists,
and cosmists, one -cl.s a little bewildered.
The Young iNJan and the Bible.
The conclusion of a scries of lectures
specially addressed to young men, was
given at Calvary Church. Sunday evening,
by the Reverend Mr. Sprecher, who took
for his subject, "The Young Man and the
Bible." In his introductory remarks, he
spoke of the different ideas entertained of
the revealed word of God by the young
man of to-d, from that of a former gene
ration. This was caused by licaring and
reading author and speaker who attempted
to throw discredit upon the genuineness of
the authenticity, or the inspiration of 'this
bible. While there was a great deal in it
thai could not be thoroughly explained by
the results of modern thought, yet in no
vital point did il suffer or fear the issue
when subjected to positive knowledge. Hut
there were truths in the bible that specially
applied to young men, which had never
given rise to any doubts. Among these
were rules of living, so applicable to the
case of every young man, that as a guide
for him, the bible was tho safest that can be
.found. Does a young man want to Jind a
model for a perfect ideal character inul Jifc,
A Marriage Maker.
In a country like France, where marriages
are far more frequently "arranged" than hi
our own land, the calling of a matrimonial
agent is by no means an unprofitable one.
A well-informed Parisian gave me some in
teresting particulars a few days ago about
M. De Foy, a genius who has amassed an
enormous fortune in this line of business.
The modus operandi of this gentleman was
cautious in the extreme. ILe carried on his
"profession" in a handsome suite of rooms,
at one end of which was a mysterious
chamber, so constructed that his clients
could come in and iro out without ever
meetum- one another. On
great man's sanctum the would-be Benedict
or Beatrice av.-is first required to give full
particulars of his or her position, fortune,
prospects, &c. Before proceeding any
further in the matter M. De Foy then took
steps to ascertain whether the information
given was correct, and this being settled,
the client paid him a sum of one thousand
francs as a preliminary fee. The great
matrimonial agent did not condescend to
such vulgar means as showing a selection
of photographs, but having mastered the
exact requirements of his customers, under
took that they should meet their"fate" in
the ordinary course of social life. This
end was brought about by his numerous
agents, whose list included princesses,
duchesses, and ladies of every grade. Qn
tbe signing of the marriage contract M. De
Foy received, of course, a handsome com
mission on the amount of dowry or settle
ment coming to his client. All his transac
tions were conducted with such secrecy,
that until a cause eclcbre, some years ago,
revealed his identity, nobody but his clients
knew the nature of the business Avhich M.
De Foy transacted in his mysterious chamber,
lie recently retired into private life, refusing
to part with the "goodwill" of his profes
sion to any successor, but taking with him
to his country seat an enormous fortune and
a pretty daughter. , This young lady might
at least have married a prince, had her
father set the machinery of his craft to work
on her behalf ; but I suppose he did not
care to carry his professional instincts into
his private life, and so mademoiselle is, as
yet. a spinster. Life.
A Simple Remedy for Cockroaches.
A correspondent writes as follows: "1
beg to forward you an easy, clean, and
certain method of eradicating these loath
some insects from dwelling houses. A few
years ago my house was infested with
cockroaches, and I was recommended to
try cucumber peelings as a remedy. 1
accordingly, immediately before bedtime,
strewed the floor of those, parts of the house
most infested with the yerinin Avith the
green peel cut not very thin from the
cucumber, and sat up half an hour later than
usual to Avatch the effect. Before the ex
piration of tbe time the floor where the peel
lay was completely covered with cock
roaches, so much so that the vegetable could
not be seen, so voraciously were they en
gaged in sucking the poisonous moisture
from it. I adopted the same plan the follow
ing night, but my visitors were not so
numerous 1 should think not more than a
fourth of the previous night. On the third
night I did not discover one; but anxious
to ascertain whether the house was quite
clean of them, I examined the peel after I
had laid il down about half an hour, and
preccived that it was cove'red with myriads
of minute cockroaches about the size of a
flea. I therefore allowed the peel to lie till
morning, and from thai moment I have not
seen a cockroach in the house. Jt is a very
old building, and 1 can assure you the above
remedy only requires lobe persevered in for
three or four nights to completely eradicate
the pest. Of course it should be fresh cu
cumber peel every night." Awtu. Paper.
