Last evening one of the soldiers
guarding the ruins drew his sword
at a Chinaman. A British marine
told our icporter, who happened
along nt the time, that the Chinaman
had just before "plugged" a native.
The affair ended without bloodshed.
At the meeting of the Privy Coun
cil yesterday, it wus resolved to
devote S 10,000 from the treasury
for the relief of sufferers by the fire.
Of this amount, $3;000 will be spent
in erecting model frame dwellings
for the natives burned out, who
number 350 persons.
During the tire Dr. Kmerson dis
covered the corpse of a Chinaman
nt a house on King street, near
Maunakea. With the assistance of
Sir. Manuel Runes, the doctor re
covered the body and delivered it
over to Chinese.
Many business stands, vacant for
longer or shorter periods, are being
occupied by merchants burned out
on Sunday. Utilises long advertis
ed in vain for tenants are also being

all their fortunes with their homes.
Their Excellencies Messrs. Gibson
and Gulick have been appointed by
the Cabinet to take charge of relief

During the lire Mr. Cassidy,
Superintendent of tho Bell Tele

were descanting upon his folly, but
they only showed their ignorance,
for a post with its insulators costs
more to replace than many instru
ments. Mr. Cassidy never slept
until he had the work of repair far
enough along to do without his im

General Gordon was not a saint,
though he was a good man. He was
a man, and n very human man. He
had strong parts, for lie had genius,
talents, will, faith, and energy; but
he had weaknesses also, which show
ed themselves in his temper, pre
judices, and in his stupendous self
confidence. Every boy who has
read five or six volumes of history
and truth-tolling biography knows
that imperfect men are often chosen
to God's work. Gordon was one of
God's chosen workers, as were
David, Peter, Luther, and Crom
well ; men of faith and purpose who
yet had faults, and struggled to
overcome them. He who is both
weak and strong can feel with the
fallen whom he lifts up, and becomes
powerful in influence- as he overcomes
his own weakness.
Gordon was a methodical worker.
He dreaded inaction, did tho task
with all his might, and valued time
as a miser his gold. lie could be
charitable to the tempted, and
patient with the wayward, but woe
to the mau who kept him waiting
five minutes, or interfered witli his
methods. Energetic and simple
minded men, no matter how good,
become irritable when obstructed.
The most placid stream will foam at
the boulder which interrupts its
currents. An anecdote, told in the
"Nineteenth Century", brings out
Gordon's impatience when little
things annoyed him.
When on dut' as a colonel of
engineers, lie used to begin his
working day at eight o'clock in the
morning, and to end it at two in thu
afternoon. Beforo and after those
houts, his manner was discouraging
to anyone who tried to see him on
One morning tho men at work on
a fort were foiced to stand idle until
the lines of an embrasure were set.
A dilllculty arose which required
Gordon to remove. Hut it was only
a little after seven o'clock, and
though his open bedroom window
showed that he had risen, no one
was willing to interview tho Colonel.
At last the chief contractor, who
stood high in Gordon's graces, went.
Gordon, opening his door, so as to
see who had knocked, asked in an
irritable tone :
"What do you want?"
The contractor blandly explained
that tho Colonel's presence was
necessary at the incomplete em
brasure. "By-and-bye," answered Gordon,
testily, ami closed the door in the
nettled contractor's face.
At eight o'clock the Colonel ap
peared ut the embrasure, and at
once settled the matter. Then, as
ho saw the men standing idle, ho
expressed his regrot that he hUd
kept the men waiting, but ho had
not known that they were unablo
to get on with anything else until
that job was done.
"But you wouldn't give me timo
to tell you thnt, Colonel!" said the
contractor, with a laugh, and in
wardly resolving never again to visit
Gordon officially before eight o'clock
in thu morning.
Yet, if a messenger from a sick
old woman had knocked at Gordon's
door at five o'clock in the morning,
asking him to come and pray with
her, tho Colonel would have beea
inside her cottago In less than thirty
He hurled such hard words at the
man who kept him waiting five
minutes, that ho never repeated the
offence; but he would pick up a boy
f i oin the gutter, feed, clothe, and
liouso him, and put him whero he
might make a man of himself. If
in a few weeks the shiftless boy
camo back to Gordon, ragged, dirty,
ami hungry, tho Colonel would trent
him as though he was a waif just
picked up, and again feed, clothe,
and place him.
Though he was scrupulously polite
to his subordinates, yet none of
them was ever allowed to forget
that Gordon was In command. In
giving orders he wasted no words,
and allowed no subordinate to
wander away from the business in
hand. But no one could have a
more kindly regard for the feelings
The conti actor who was building
the fort had a clerk named Stan
nanl. Gordon, having been order
ed to another post, was making a
farewell visit to the fort, in com
pany witli the Inspector-General
and a dpcu ollicers. The inspec
tion was' over, ami all the party
except Gordon had seated them
selves in tho steam launch. He
daited across the ground, throw
open the door of the clerk's hut,
rushed in, and wringing his hand,
exclaimed, "Good-bye, Stannardl
God bless and keep you always!"
Befoio tho astonished clerk could
reply, Gordon was out of the hut
and rushing towards the launch.
One of (lie beM, and greatest of
men, whose ambition was to be a
co-worker witli the Master, confess
ed that ho was but an "earthen
vessel." Gordon was swayed by
the same ambition and humility. He
knew his frailties, but he cared only
for the praise or blame of ono Being
God. IIu did not think himself
perfect, hut he tried to be a man
whom tho Lord could use, and over
come his conscious imperfections.
His purpose, like a true soldier, was
