Captain Kelly V Do you mean
"Eliza's" young man? Of course.
He is agoing to invite public propo
sals for the construction of a wig.
Don't give it away, but put in a bid.
Wasn't what curious?
O, the coaling of the Mariposa on
Sunday. No, 1 don't think so. No,
the laws do not absolutely forbid it.
You think the laws should be so.
Bosh! that is only one of the entic
ing fictions of j'oiir imagination, but
absolutely rot. Hut, you aic right,
that the making of laws and their
execution are two entirely diffeient
things. Laws are presumed to be
made for all, but the greater part of
them are executed for the benefit of
the few. A poor 'man desecrating
the Sabbath when forbidden would
soon feel the stern hand of the out
raged law, but a wealthy and influ
ential one, the minions of the law
forgetful of her outrage would hold
back the stern hand. But such is
the , world's history. Religion and
laws become but the catspaw to se
cure ehesuuts for designing men.
To the poor the law makes the way
of transgression cstremely hard, but
to the rich and powerful it is as a
roadwuy strewn with flowers. Ah,
my boy. even though the mode of
the law's execution be rot, there aie
but two ways of remedy either
close your eyes and steep j'our brain
in, foretfulncs3, or else execute the
laws' dishonest executioners.
Did I see the barbecue at the
Cummins' races on baturda'? Yes;
butvtben my friend, Mrs. Parting
ton once remarked when attending
a similar entertainment, that All
light, I will say no more, but those
who know the lady can imagine how
she covered the whole question.
Well no, Fred was about the mad
dest mad man I ever met. Poor
fellow, he got thrown out of Court,
bag and baggage, because, as he
says, his legal advisers were dire
lect in their duty, did not down
brakes in time. Tell Fred when
you see him it was only a case of
asleep on the switch, which prob.i
bably can be remedied by the em
ployment ot a now switchman.
Those who love the law shall die by
Certainly. I shall go to the meet
ing of the Academy of Music on
Friday. What do I think of the
scheme? From a charitable stand
point I think it rather good, but
from a cold, logical standpoint I am
afraid. The people here are of the
born lazy set, and will not, though
they love music and its art, be in
duced to forgo their Lcthian habits
tb' rehearse sufficiently to ensue a
successful attempt to find "Israel in
Egypt." Such attempts can only be
nnido successful by the hardest kind
of work, and the people of theso isl
ands in that lino of enterprise, are
not ready to grasp the Ilydra-hcad-ed
monster by the hand.
What do I think of tho modern
"Hank Monk" of the Pantheon Sta
ples? Why, I am more than aston
,Sbhcd, that business men, and pre
sumably careful ones like the Pan
.theon rulers, should trust tho pre
cious lives of so many people, In a

It is quite reprehensible, intended

.aro just practicable enough to be
classed as malicious mischief

originated in the front room behind
the door, among some clothing, and
had reached the shingles, there be

by means of garden hose. The en

Tho origin of the fire is unknown.

THE SECRET CONCLAVE.
A meeting was held yesterday.
ovenlng in Autociat Hall, city of
Calathumpia, on tho Whcieabout
Islands, for tho purpose ot otg.in
izing a political union.
There were present General
Quartette ; Rev. Amos Whaugbiistcr,
a gtey faced gentleman with black
bushy eyebrow's which met over the
top of his nose ; Philip Slrungcways,
an occasional newspaper editor who
has a chronic quarrel with his shirt
collar; Job Periwinkle, an adven
turer fond of loaves and fishes ; Dick
Blunt, an artisan who wants to bet
ter his circumstances ; Iheo. Gag,
a planter of the boss type; Jim Tin

from the wealthy; and Long Tom,
who has a very loud and harh
On motion of Rev. A. "Whang
buslcr, seconded by Theo. Gag,
General Quartette was called to the
The Chairman then called the
meeting to order, and mado a few
introductory remarks as follows:
"Gentlemen Our numbers are
few; but, in time, we will doubtless
receive many accessions, when wo
beeomo properly organized. You
all know the object for which we arc
met this evening, viz: To organize
a political party of class interests."
(Hear! hear! from Rev. A. Whang
buster; and the query of "what's
that?" from Dick Blunt). "Wc
will now proceed to the election of
officers, leaving the President to be
the last officer chosen." The chair
man then looked enquiringly at his
small audience and an idea sug
gested itself which he expressed
thus: "I think it will bo necessary
to elect only four officers at present,
and then add others as our numbers
increase. The officers at present to
be chosen are, President, Vice-President,
Treasurer, and Secretary.
First, I will receive nominations for
Rev. A. Whangbustcr proposed,
and Theo. Gag seconded the nomin
ation of Philip Strangeways. There
being no other nominations Philip
Strangeways was declared duly
elected. This proceeding was rapid
ly recorded by the chairman, who
only halted to know whether Theo.
meant Theodore orTheopholus; and
on being told the latter was correct,
the lecord was complete.
In like manner Long Tom was
elected Secretary; and Rev. A.
Whangbnster, Treasurer. Of course,
General Quartette, after some extra
formality, was chosen President.
Rev. A. AVhangbuster, lifting his
shaggy cyeorows anil throwing a
gratified glance at the President,
suggested that "as tho organization
had now been completed, it would
be better to defer further business
until next meeting, of which the
Secretary would give the members
This suggestion was agiecd to,
and Rev. A. Whangbustcr closed
the meeting with the following choice
hymn composed by himself for the
