Tlioto is ho longer any reason
to doubt tlmt tho British aro in
Egypt to stay. The speech of
Sir Michaol Hicks-Beach, Chan
cellor of tho Exchequer, of which
a report has appeared in our latest
foreign news, makes tho fact clear
to tho world. As pointed out in
th JJpiiLlH'W some months ago
French diplomacy, baokod by
Russia, unwittingly gave Groat
Britain tho pretext for de
claring hor occupation of Egypt
as of indefinite duration. She
Lad coaducted a successful cam
paign to put down an insurrection
in tho Soudan, and hor chum to
indemnity, out of tho joint fuud
for administration of tho
Egyptian finances, was resisted
by Franco with Russia's
assent and finally dis
avowed by an Egyptian court,
whose jurisdiction in such matters
British diplomacy, "in a moment
of woaknoss" as it has been ox
pressed, had in arranging tho
Egyptian question loft supromo.
There was nothing thou loft to
Great Britain but to pay tho bill
of tho Dongola campaign, which
gave hor an equitable right to as
snmu tho sovereignty that tho
campaign had procured. British
occupation of Egypt has proved n
good thing for tho country, and
Las been a protection of foreign
iutoiests besides those of Great
Britain therein. "Whothor or not
the declaration of tho virtual por
manenco of such occupation just
made shall havo tho diro results

sido viow it is not un
reasonable to suppose that
the long period of tho British
stay in Egypt, against augry
aomaudd, from within and with
out the United Kingdom, that in
teutiou of pormauent tenure
should be distinctly disavowed,
has blunted tho effect that would
at au earlier stage havo resulted
from tho distinct avowal now

So that it is likely enough that

It is suggested to tho Bulletin
that the Hagoy Institute should

Captain McLcod, of the brig
Courtney Ford at Port Townseud
from Tahiti, reports that a revolv
ing waterspout passed within a
mile of his vessel. It was in
south latitude 15:15, and west
longitude 148:03, at 6 o'clock in
the afternoon, when tho ship's
company was suddenly attracted
to tho almost instant formation of
a mammoth waterspout. Wind

spiral, it swallowed up thousands
upon thousands of tons of wator,
and roached an altitude of fully ono
milo in height, whero it seemed to
deposit tho great volume, of sea
wator into a cirrocumulus ajouu.
Around tho base of the spout tho
sea was lashed into a cauldron of
white foam for sovoral hundred
yards. The wind was blowing
gently from east south-east, and
tho phenomenon formed about a
mile distant on tho loo bow of the
Tho spout remaiupd stationary

was fully 100 feet in thickness and

indescribable scene ono that was
intensely thrilling and exciting
and not altogether free from dan

it bent over and moved
west, gradually decreosing
in volume until a quarter of au
hour later it disappeared from
view. In tho meautimo the cloud

Minister Cooper's proposition
to employ Professor Yarndlev as

school brought forth an immediate
objection from Inspector-General
Townseud, who insisted that the
Professor was a pronounced
enemy of tha tonio sol-fa system

and doubted whothor he would be
a success, as he would in all pro
bability profor his own methods
of teaching to those horetofoie
