Under the terms of the "Foicign
Enlistment Act," the British author
ities refused to allow a French man-of-war
to refit at Hongkong. This
has caused great annoyance in Paris,
one paper denouncing the conduct
as especially unfriendly and urging
the French Government to retaliate
by immediately blockading all
Chinese ports. It says France has
hitherto refrained from doing so be
cause she legarded England as a
friendly Power, and the blockading
of the Chinese ports would have
hampered English commerce. It
was reported in London, Jau. 28th,
that France had decided officially to
declare war against China, in conse
quence of England's enforcement of
the Foreign Enlistment Act. The
war in Tonquiu is denounced by a
superior oflicer of the French army
in Paris as one of the "rcatcst mis
takes ever committed by any Govern
ment. He says peace should have
been made immediately after the
naval victory at Foo-Chow.

A "Washington despatch of Jan.
2othsays: Rev. Dr. Patten, Pre
sident of the Howard University,
preached a sermon in the Congrega
tional Church in this city to-day on
""Women and Skepticism," in the
course of which he spoko of the
AVoman's Suffrage Convention, held
here recently, and expressed the
opinion that when women are given
too much libeity they branch off into
skepticism and immorality. He said,
among other things, that the lives
of such women as George Eliot,
Madame Roland and Harriet Marti
rieau, are the exemplied truth of this
assertion and he referred to Victoria
Woodhull as the representative of
the "Woman's Suffrage movement.
Among his audience were Miss
Susan B. Anthony and Mrs. Eliza-
netn uauy btanton, ana on tue con
clusion of the service they walked to
the platfonn and upbraided Dr.
Patten for his utterances. .Miss
Anthony said to him if his mother
were living she should take him
across her knee and spank him ; but
Mrs. Stanton interrupted her and
said: "On the contrary, let me con
gratulate Dr. Patten ; I've been try
ing for years to make women under
stand that the enemies they have
are in the pulpit. Now, he has
illustrated it beyond question."
Without giving Dr. Patten time to
reply, the women hastily left the
church. To-night, Rev. Olympia
Brown replied to Dr. Patten from
the pulpit of the Universalist
USE OF GOLD IN THE ARTS.
The consumption or gold for other
than monetary purposes has more
than quadrupled in thirty years. It
is more than five times what it was
a century ago, when gold was used
for personal ornament to a greater
amount per capita than to-day. Tho
great mass of gold which has flowed
from the mines has been absorbed
In the same opulence and luxury of
tho times which have swallowed up
the flood of genuine gems, great in
volume beyond any former preced
ent and almost outnumbering the
pasty jewels of the glassmaker's art.
Fivesixths of the current produc
tion of gold is absorbed in the arts
and' manufactures of the Western
yorld and in British India. A part
of the remaining sixth is lost by the
wear of coins, the forgotten hoards
of misers and in war, shipwrecks
and fires a great proportion is lost
and destroyed. It is possible that
the production of gold may increase.
It is also possible that it may de
crease, ns it actually has been de
creasing for many years , but there
is no uncertainty about tho consump
tion, which is sure to grow with the
growing 'opulence and luxury of the
world. The consumption of precious
metal has been trebled within the
past twenty years, and if it only
doubles within tho next twenty yoava
Lit will exceed the production.
In tho United States great quan
tities of it are used in jewelry and
plating, while a comparatively largo
proportion of the entire amount is
used in gilding porcelain and glass
waie, and it is in this paiticular
branch of business that a marked
increase in the price of gold would
have u serious effect. Riulily-llnishcd
decorations cannot be produced
without more or less gold, and in
many instances it is applied with a
lavish hand, as may be seen in Royal
"Worcester, Crown Derby, old or
new Satsuina, old Beehive Vienna,
and various other fabrics of rich
goods, in which gold ornaments arc
the predominating feature. Of
course, gold paste assists very much
in making the relief of patterns, but
the amount of gold applied is by no
means insignificant. Indeed, every
decorating shop in the world uses
more or less of it, and when the ex
penses of preparation are added to
the cost of the metal, it becomes no
inconsiderable item in the cost of
decoratiug. Various methods have
been employed in reducing gold to
the state of an ordinary pigment,
and the processes have been guard
ed with the greatest secrecy. In
stances arc not wanting where dec
orators, coming to tills country and
finding an oppoitunity open for busi
ness, have been compelled to pay
heavily for a gold recipe.
One of the English methods was
to reduce tho gold to an oxide by
amalgamation with mercury, the
proportion being about one ounce of
gold to one-half pound of mercury.
The gold was put into a ladle and
allowed to acquire a high tempera
ture ; then the mercury was poured
in upon it and stirred until amalga
mation was completed. The mass
was then turned into a basin of
cold water and washed until it was
clear, and then the whole was passed
through a piece of chamois. Flux
and fat oil was then added, and the
mass was ground until it was fine
enough for application to the ware.
The general method employed in
this country in the early days of
decoration was to take a sovereign
or a five-dollar gold piece to a dentist,
and get him to roll the coin out into
a ribbon ; one-half pound of nitric
acid was put into a bottle, and into
it bits of gold libbon were dropped
and the bottle set in warm sand to
accelerate the action of the acid on
the gold ; a certain amount of mer
cury and nitric acid was put into
another bottle, and both mixtures
were allowed to stand until perfectly
clear. Both mixtures were then
put into a common receptacle, like a
hand-basin, the gold first and the
mercury following. The action of
the mercury was to precipitate the
gold to the bottom of the vessel,
where it lay in rich, brown lumps of
soft oxide. Washing, fluxing and
grinding followed, until ready for
use. In this way many a coin of the
realm found its way to the decora
tor's palette. American Stationer.
