DEFEAT OF THE MAIL SUBSIDY.
The mail brings intelligence that
the Pacific mail subsidy has been de
feated in the American House of Re
presentatives. New South Wales
had previously given notice of its in
tention of withdrawing its support,
on thfe grounds that the United States
had violated its pledges and in no
way contributed to the undertaking.
Even now the steamers arc running
only because of the pluck of New
Zealand in renewing the contract on
its own account for another year
action taken largely upon the
strength of hopes that America
would not be so short-sighted as to
sink all considerations of the bene
fits afforded by the line to her Pacific
Coast and her maritime commerce.
Therefore, the effect of the action
just taken by the popular branch of
Congress cannot be expected to be
other than the discontinuance of this
very important medium of inter-Pn-cifio
trade. It really appears that
the Americans have become seized
with an unaccountable fatality of
not being able to look straight at any
question bearing upon tlicir foreign
relations. In this case, according
to reports, it would seem that the
Representatives only saw one of their
leading shipbuilders a class crippled
by the national commercial policy
urging the passage of the item for
his own sake, and forthwith killed the
measure. They could not sec the
importance of it to the country, as
Hardily set forth by those best capa
ble to judge, the mercantile commu;
nity of San Francisco. Not only
lias the United States broken the
pledge given by Senator Chandler in
1872 "that the Government was
prepared to subsidize the lino, wben
evcr'vessels of the tonnage and pow
er that have been running for years
were placed in the service," quoting
from the S. F. Merchant but she
,, has insanely hampered the enterprise
by excessive charges for the carriage
of English-Australian mails across
the Continent. It looks ridiculous
to see America joining England in
protesting against Germany's annex
ation of Samoa, while she is doing
all she can to curtail her existing in
fluence in the Paciflc.

VACiriC MAIL Sl'USIDY DEKEATT.D.
A "Washington despatch of Feb
ruary 13th says: Tho killing of the
Pacific Mail subsidy scheme in the
House this afternoon was a great
surprise to John Roach and others,
who were to bo the principal bene
ficiaries had it passed. The bill to
give this subsidy was originally an
independent bill, and as such had
been favorably reported hy the
House Committee on Shipping.
Through their influence, as also that
of Money, Chairman of the IIouso
Committee on Postofllces, it had
been tacked on to the Poslolllce
Appropiation bill against tho wishes
of Randall, Holmau and others on
the Appropriation Committee. The
Pacific Mail lobby have been on
hand several days, but Roach kept
out of the way until this afternoon,
when, being told the item was safe,
he ventured out, though he kept
away from the Capitol. The item
was worked up as if it were to bene
fit American shipping, though it is
well known that no one but the
Pacific Mail steamers could be bene
ficiaries. Randall was nervous about
it, for there were some reasons for
believing that enough Democrats
had been seen to secure its passage.
Tom Baync, a Republican of Penn
sylvania, at Randall's dictation,
made the speech that laid tho item,
out. Randall has been suffering
from a sore throat for several days
and cannot raise his voice above a
whisper, but ho ran about the House
aud drummed up votes, until he,
with Ilolman and others, had the
satisfaction of seeing this scheme
beaten for the fifth time it has come
up in the House.
KHAJITOUH I-'AT.LKX GORDON SLAIN.
Khartoum was captured by the
rebels on the 2Gth January, and
General Gordon was slain and tho
city sacked. Emissaries of El Mahdi,
the " False Prophet," had previously
gained access to the garrison, and
bj' bribes, threats and religious argu
ments induced a large portion of the
Egyptian soldiers to assent to a
scheme for the betrayal of the city.
Early in the morning of the above
date the garrison went to a remote
quarter of the city, to resist a pre
tended attack? and at the same time
other traitors admitted El Mahdi's
forces through the main gates of the
city. A fearful massacre of the
garrison followed, the scenes of
slaughter being described as sur
passing the Bulgarian atrocities and
rivalling the worst horrors of the
Sepoy mutiny. Egyptians were
caught in their flight and put to
death with tortures. Women were
outraged, and youg girls given up to
the soldiers for slaves. One account,
the first that came, of tho death of
Gordon says his attention was at
trated by a tumult in the streets,
and leaving the palace to ascertain
the cause of the disturbance he was
stabbed in the baek. aB he reached
the street, and fell dead. The latest
intelligence, contained in a despatch
received by the British War Office,
Feb. 15th, says: "General Gqrdon
was killed by a volley from the rebel
riflemen while on his way from head
quarters to the Austrian Consulate.
The Austrian Consul was killed in
his own residence and the Greek
Consul has been held a prisoner by

The intens'est excitement ensued
in London upon the news of Khar
toum's fall becoming known. It is
said that if Parliament was in session
the Ministry could not have stood a
day. The jubilant gladness over the
recent victories and advances along
the Nile was suddenly turned to
dread. Offers in person and by
telegram of officers for active duty
poured into the War Office. The
Ministry decided to give General
Wolseley-f till, power to act in tho
emergency, and tool; measures for a
campaign upon a greatly enlarged
THE ITEVISKri CAMPAIGN,
General Graham has left London,
to take command of no expedition

be remembered for n victory gained
in tho Soudan over Osmnn Dlgnn, at

rebellion. A narrow-gauge railway j

thoso points, tho Government having

despatched from Gibraltar to re-in-force
General Wolscley's force, and
more ate to follow. It is calculated
that the advance from Suakim will
begin about the third week in Maich
and reach Berber about April 25th.
Tho distance between the two places

British Foreign Secretary, of tho
confidence that Italy has in tc
power of England to crush the rebel

Egypt, and to state that Italy is
willing to occupy with her troops
strategic posts so as to enable Eng
land to mass her forces against those
of the Mahdi.
A largo force is being gathered in
Manitoba, Canada, for service in
Egypt. It is expected that an entire
regiment can be raised there. It was
rumored that a battery of Canadian
artillery would be given permission
by the Government of the Dominion
to volunteer for the Soudan.
The Government of Victoria, Aus

MOltn FIGHTING GKNIUIAI. HARM!
General Earle had scarcely started
on his advance for Berber, when he
met the Arabs on the Nile, strongly
fortified in a pass and with a fort on
the left bank of the river. His
forces met with a heavy fire from
field guns. Having no artillery, he
ordered a charge, and his soldiers
carried the heights at the point of
the bayonet. lu the moment of
ictory Earle, who headed the
charge, was killed, and General
Brnckenbury took command. Tho
English losses were General Earle,
Colonel Eyre, Licut.-Col. Coventry
and nine men killed, and four officers
and twenty-one men wounded. It
was believed this battle would open
the way to Berber without further
Colonel Wilson went to Khartoum
with his small flotilla of steamers,
and finding that city in the hands
of the rebels returned down the river
for Korti. On the way two of the
steamers stranded, and for several
days those ou board were harassed
by the rebels, who were on the
river bank in large numbers.
Lord Charles Bcrcsford in the btcam

killed and seven injured in the pas

Wilson lost two killed and twpnty
four wounded on the island.
