Evidently the day of land mono
poly has advanced past its meridian
in civilized lands. There was a
great meeting of rich, influential
landholders held in London on the
24th of April last. It was attended
by such persons as the Duke of
Argyll, Earl Carnarvon and the
Maiquis of Ripon. Resolutions were
passed to take steps for the imme
diate formation of a large corpora
tion, to be called the National Land
Company, for the purpose of secur
ing the gradual breaking-up of the
large-parcel system of land-ownci-ship
now injuriously prevalent in
Great Britain. As stated in a brief
telegtaphic leport of the meeting,
tlie present plan of the new organiza
tion is to buy up land at wholesale
and sell it out in lots not to exceed
forty acres, under conditions likely
to cause a further subdivision. The
company will, in all likelihood, buy
for cash and sell on defened pay
ments, covering at least ten ycais.
We have heard a .somewhat similar
scheme propounded here for secur
ing the grand object of settling the
country with a thrifty and indus
trious peasantry. Certainly to a
more patriotic object the accrued
wealth of this Kingdom could not
be devoted, and wc believe, if judi
ciously managed, such a scheme
would yield fair tetiiriis to its pio
moters. There arc many areas now
not much more promising than arid
deserts, which might by irrigation
be made to blossom as the rose. A
wealthy company could effect that
object much more economically,
wherever it was at all possible to
procure water, than any small
owners could individually. Indeed,
it is the impracticability of irriga
tion upon a small scale which stands
at present, next to the hold of mono
poly itself, most in tlie way of set
tling the country. However, there
is a good deal of land, compara
tively speaking, where the difficul
ties of irrigation arc not extremely
formidable, and to such territory
colonization companies could apply
their initial efforts. There would
doubtless be an up grade only to be
overcome by diligence and patience,
in tlie work of procuring settlers
here and abroad. Once, however,
the summit of the hill of difficulty
was reached, it would be safe for
the companies to undertake the
more expensive descriptions of land
reclamation. Wc can only entreat
public attention to this most im
portant subject, but would fain have
despotic power over .the minds of
our men of means long enough to
compel them to take action for the
salvation of their country.

General Komaroff's explanation
of his conduct on the Afghan border
has been published in St. Peters
burg, and is as follows: "A tele
gram forbidding the occupation of
Penjdcli reached me on March 23rd.
I only communicated it to the com
manders of outposts, and did not
make it generally known. Colonel
Zacizcvski, with my permission, in
terviewed by correspondence some
British officers in his private capa
city. I did not admit their right to
treat officially. J addressed my de
mands direct lo the commander of
the Afghan forces. General Alik
lianoff, with the Sotnia of tlie Turco
mans, rode in the direction of Mor
kalo, along tlie river bank on the
Russian side. It was by no means
my intention to advnncc on Penjdcli.
To march the Sotnia in the rear of
1,000 Afghans was inconceivable.
One company of Russians marched on
the height of the right bank of the
Murghab river, but did not reach
our vidcttes on the left bank of the

This proposal is now under consider

A New York despatch of April
IJOth is as follows: The Russian
man-of-war Slrelok, which left Nor
folk yesterday, passed Sandy Hook
inward-bound at 8:!30 o'clock this
morning. Tlie arrival of the Stre
lok, which has been cruising on the
Atlantic seaboard some months,
followed from port to port by the
English frigate Garnet, gives zest to
the war anticipations hero, as it is
possible the first naval battle of the
impending war may be fought off
our coast. The Strclok skipped out
from Norfolk yesterday, leaving the
Gurnet at anchor there. The latter
is expected to follow her hither.
The Strclok is commanded by a
dashing officer, who greatly dis
tinguished himself in the Turkish
war. The English ship is larger,
and carries more guns, but tlie Strc
lok' is tlie faster vessel, and her guns
have a longer range, so the two .ves
sels arc about equally matched.
English shipowners arc urging the
necessity for the erection of de
fenses upon the river Clyde.
An English man-of-war has

The Moscow Guzitle, April ."0th,
says that if England wishes to avoid

tion of peace or war must bo settled
within a few days. On the snino
date the Daily ireiw, British
Government organ in London, says
England has not taken possession of
Port Hamilton. The presence of a
fast British cruiser in the vicinity of
thai Island, the iYcici stales, was
probably the origin of the report.
The Btitish Wnr Office has called
