cates no mere than the sympathy which a mem?

the boxes of the etnigrauts, which wtire furnish' ;
with false bottoms, in which the smnggled goods
were placed. These goods were first smuggled Into
Ireland from France,. Thc boxes used in the
smuggling operations were made sud' sold to
emigrants at reduced prices by a large trunk
manufacturer of Belfast, and thc silks were doubt?
less placed In the false bottoms before -they were
sold to the emlgrants.'rBeforc" !rtartlni iof this
country, the emigrants were recommended to go,
on their arrival In New York, to certain emigrants'
boarding-houses in West street, and when they
arrived^there.: it wai) 'a simple "matte;- to; remove

? ft estimated tha: the United States Government
has last not less than $250,000 in gold by tins
cheating of thc customhouse. Tho business bas
also bee^?arrted on with Baltimore, lt ls said.
The goods thu3 smuggled, on arriving in Niw
York, were remove I to two wholesale houses on
Broadway, who were thus enailcd to sell fine
silks and velvets at a low figure, very much under
the market rates.
-Thc ship in the Col >rado desert still continues
to excite Interest in .San Francisco, particularly
as an exploring party of four persons hus just re?
turned from a search after this wonder. As was
the casa with previous explorers, this party did ,
not succeed in reaching the ship, but only man?
aged to obtain a view of it through a field gla?&
tte lea'.er of this party, who, it ls stated, Ls a man
of veracity and good sense, sars that he found t he
ship about forty-five miles southw. st of Los Pal
mos station and thu Uavassone lake, precisely at
the spot where it had been reported by the Indians
ana by travellers. The party had travelled
five days and lour nights on thirty-six gil
tons of waters fur four men and ?ve animals,
and was forced to ?eturn without succeed?
ing In the object or the exploration. Thc lender
or the party, however, pushed on before his com?
panions, travelling all night on root, and torment?
ed with axaging thirst, and only went Tar enough
toassureTUmsElfthat thestup acualy existed.
He says thathe saw tho ship distinctly through
his glass, about a' mile anda half distant. Thc
shift appears- tobe two hundred and fifty reet
long, and lies on her beam ends, with the bow,
bowsprit and stern wed above the saud. This
indefatigable explorer has started out again for

cable companies have giver their opiniou
the situation to an interviewer, which n
bc br.efly stated as that, with an accumulai
of two days' work for the single French cu
at Brest, they were forced to increase
tariff, in order to s-top the increase of business
a measure. The French cable has a bad leak n
Urest, and cannot be used to its full extent. 1
Field gives little encouragement a< to thc succ
of repairing ihe broken cables this season, a
goes further to say that lt will not poy to lay a

and do not pay heavy dividends, thc amount
daily earnings having decreased rather than ai
mented under the reduction of the tariff. Th
is said to be not enough work for the cablea

may not reduce the tariff after the present troo

The Luxembourg Question.
The momentous Importance of the go
understanding which undoubtedly exists I
tween the Governments of Berlin and I
Petersburg begins to be understood. Gi
many and Russia, acting together, conti
the whole of Europe. The aggressive mo\
mcnts of the Czar in the East are encouru
ed by the knowledge that Austria is afro
of losing her German provinces, and th
the legions of Germany, which have ulrea<
subjugated France, will not bc turn
against Russia. This, also, .holds Englui
in chuck, and it is an ominous fact th;
just at the time when the relations belwei
Russia and the Porte are again declared
be highly unsatisfactory, Count Bisman
should formally announce that.the neutr
State of Luxembourg will be annexed to tl
Germau Empire, Austria fears Prus3ii
Turkey has good cause to dread the ei
croachments of Russia; England keeps 01
eyeon Germany and Russia, while the oth<
takes in the Alabama claims and thc Can:
dian fisheries. Bismarck and Gortschakc
hold the key to the situation, and they kno
how to make the best use of their golde
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the ne
element of dislurbanco, has a population (
only 200,000, but, IyiDg on the borders, b<

proportion to its area and numerical strengtl
When the old Germanic Diet was dissolved
in 1866, by the withdrawal of Prussia, th
position of Luxembourg, which from LSI
had belonged to the old German Confedera
tion, became the subject of diplomatic cor
respondence. Prussia took the ground tba
her troops occupied Luxembourg in virtu
of the international treaties of 1816 and 1S56
between Prussia and Holland, and that UK
dissolution of the Diet did not change hei
relations to the Grand Duchy. Luxembourg
protested against this view, and tho ques
tion slumbered until early i ti 1867 whet
France began her efforts to purchase thc
Grand Duchy. The King of Holland, how?
ever, insisted upon informing tho King ol
Prussia that France had made proposals for
tho cession of Luxembourg-accession which
Lord Stanley, the present Earl of Derby, de?
clared would be no more than legitimate.
France was greatly dissatisfied with the
step taken by the King of Holland, which
made the French project known in Germany
and there produced un immense agilatiou.
When, on April 1, 1867, in the North Ger
mau Parliament, the vice-President, Herr
Von Benningeen, declared that tho govern?
ment must not suffer "one province of Ger
"many to be lost, and must resist the an?
nexation of Luxembourg, if necessary, by
"force of anns," tho whole Parliament con?
curred with these views, and the South Ger?
man States wero equally emphatic in do?
ctoring their assent. Thia alarmed Holland,
and the King withdrew bi3 consent ta the
cession of the Duchy'to France. In Hie
moan time the negotiations between France
and Prussia assumed a threatening charac?
ter. The French ambassador in London, on
the 10th of April, explained to Lord Stanley
the grounds upon which his government
inuit, sooner or later, insist upon the evac?
uation by Prussia of the Fortress of Luxem?
bourg. Count Bernstorff, on the other hand,
was directed by Count Bismarck to say that
"in the actual state of things in Germany,
"Prussia is not iu a condition to consent to
"the separation, in any form, of Luxembourg
"from Germany, or to the evacuation of the
"fortress." England, Russia and Austria
advised Prussia to consent to the neutraliza?
tion of the Grand Duchy, as a compromise,
and, on April 27, Prussia agreed to give way
upon condition that a European guarantee
be given for tho neutrality. This led to the
conference which met in London in May,
1867, under the presidency of Lord Stanley.
The powers represented were England, Aus?
tria, Russie, Prussia, France, Italy, Bel?
gium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.
The con erence closed its labors, on May ll,
by sigmtig the Treaty of London, which de?
clares: i. That the rights possessed by the
collateral branches of the House of Nassau
to the succession of the Grand Duchy are
maintained. 2. That the Grand Duchy, un?
der the guarantee of Austria, France, Great
Britain, Prussia and Russia, will form a
State perpetually neutral, anil will be bound
to observe that same neutrality toward all
oilier Slates; that the treaty powers pledge
themselves "to respect" the principle ol' the
neutrality, which remains under their "col
"lective guarantee," except Belgium, herself
u neutral State. 3. That me town of Luxem?
bourg cease to be a foriiiietl place, i. That
tho Prussian troops immediately evacuate
tho fortress. 5. That the said fortress be
made an opeu town, the King of Holland
promising that the fortifications shall not be
restor- d. 6. That the bonds which united
the Duchy ol'Limburg collectively with the
Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to the German
Confederation having ceased to exist, the
relations bel ween the Grand Daciiy and cer?
tain portions of the Duchy of Limburg have
ended, those portions of territory continuing
to form pa integral part of the Kingdom of
Luxembourg was evacuated by the Prus?
sians in May and Jun?, a pretence was made
of razing Hie fortress, and at this point the
question stood until the recent action of
Germany, which, it will be remarked, is
thoroughly consistent with the declarations of
Count Bismarck and tho expressions of Ger
man feeling prior to the Treaty of London.
As regardi/the attitude of the treaty^powere
in the pr?sent emergency, it i3 important to
note that in 1867.it waa officially declared
by England and'Russia that they understood
the gaarantee mentioned in the second arti?
cle of the Treaty or London a3 a joint guar?
antee, and not involving an obligation for
any of the States to enforce such a guaran?
In demanding the annexation of Luxem?
bourg, Bismarck makes another step towards
the complete unification of Germany; and it
ts not hard to see that in the rectification of
frontiers now taking placo the future boun?
dary of the German Empire on the west will
run nearly due north and south from tho
North Sea to Switzerland, including Luxem?
bourg and the French provinces east of the
LAT SERMONS, ADDRESSES A VD REVIEWS. By
Thomas Henry Huxley, L?.L. D-t F- & 8
New York: D. Appleton. 1870.
Whatever may be the value of Professor
Huxley's contributions to natural science,
there can be no question as to the value of his
contributions to Its literature. His brilliant
style, his incisive logic, his wit and his re?
sources of metaphor and illustration have
stimulated to the study ot the problems of phy?
sical science large numbers of persons whom
the difficulty and unfamiliarity ot the discus?
sions were apt to repel. Thc volume before
usjcontalns his most remarkable productions,
and lt ls not an exaggeration to say that no
book has of late appeared more distinguished
by ability or by the interest its topics possess
for the thinking portion of mankind. The
reader will here And the latest evidence of the
new creed, which abjuring necessity, yet sur?
renders the universe to matter and torce, and
he will be conducted by the most delightful of
guides to the loremost trenches which science
has drawn around the citadel or life. He may
not assent to all that is preached unto him,
and he may fail to read, over the portals of
life, the motto so plain to the eye of his
teachers, but he will at least have had his at?
tention directed to the supreme enigma which
mankind hos to solve. The other essays,
though ol ICBS significance in a scientific point
ol view, will be found very entertaining, espe?
cially that on S3lentlflc education, a subject
which is now attracting so much Interest.
Want of. space prevents us from applying to
that essay, or to the others, any adequate criti?
cism, but upon the subject ot education, we
would point out that Professor Huxley adopts
the usual view of those who argue the value
of scienco as an instrument of education, viz.,
that thc student who gels his science from a
text book or teacher is put to the same degree
of mental effort as he*who cr?ales the science.
The fallacy of his argument, If there is fallacy
?nit, seems to us tolle just there. But we
must leave this question to the readers ol the
book, who, we hope, will be many.
