It will eradicate from the system every taint of

Atlen'm Strengthening Cordial has

Allen' Strengthening Cordial has
never been known to iuI n giving immediate relief
in all diMiaaesof tbe Kidneys and Urinary organs.
This medicine challenges the most profound atten

FATE OF THE CZARS.
Bowl. I he HitarsTer unit
It mav be interestinp-just now to note
what history and rumor saya of the fate
f the t-zars of liussia. from Kuric
(862) to Jurie, or George I. (11'm,) who
built Mofcow, there were eventeen
dukes of Kiev. To these follow sixteen
prand dukes f Vladimir, ending with
Jurie, or (Seorce III., in 1325. The
succeeding sovereigns, nine in number,
bore the title of grand duke of Mos
cow, in low commences the list 01
czars of Muscovy, who.se territorial
boundaries have spread by purchase but
chiefly by conquest, until they reach the
giant dimensions of the present Russian
empire. Frodor I., second czar, was
poisoned ; Bori-j poisoned himself ; Ivan
VI., of the house of Romanoff, was de
posed ; I'eter III. was deposed and mur
dered ; Panl I. was strangled in his bed
thamber; Alexander I. is reported to
have died by slow poison ; Nicholas, too,
is reported to have been poisoned, as
his death was unexpected, and his body
lay three days in private state before any
public announcement oi his death was
made. Another and a still more com
mon idea is that Nicholas died from mor
tification on account of his disasters and
defeat in the Crimea. The present czar,
Alexander II., is the sixteenth of the
bouse of Romanoff'. He has entered
upon a more arduous tak than his father,
the conquest of Constantinople, at a time
when the rest of the great nations are
even more averse to disturbing the
balance of power in Europe than when
yehastopol wasatU-cked. The crown does
not sit easily upon his head. Recent
accounts eay that Alexander's cheeks are
sunken, his eyes are lusterle-s, hia step
has lost much of its elasticity, and his
can iage is las dignified than formerly.
He is described aa prematurely aged,
which is not marvelous, since he works
from eight in the morning until nine
o'clock at night, laboring even hirder
than his ministers. There is hot work in
the east and the west already. For

If Alexander should fail, and the
crefcent should look dofn upon myriads
of Russians sent to their death bv his
ambition to popses Constantinople, h
will likely go the way of Nicholas, either
by treason or broken-hearUdness. It is
believed in Russia that on the base of a
statue erected by the early chiefs there
appeared a miraculously-written prophecy
that, the Rus would one dav sit in the
seat of the Greek emperor. Every czar
has sanctioned, the fsble, and hence each
one who attacts lurlcey leArs the con
sequences ot failure.

at sea. Suddenly a tiny white pennon
fluttered out, and was instantly with

Kathleen. " I began to think it would

"Are we going to mamma?"
" Yes, yes jump in, quick."

last, the only thought that whirled
through her brain.
And when, the next morning, long af
ter the outward bound Sardina was
spreading her white sails to the breeze,
the little boat drifted ashore, people
whimpered to one another that old Mori
sons daughter and the golden-haired lit
l.i . , i .i

Ten years afterwards, Kathleen Mori
son a childless widow, a listless exile
now upon a foreign shore was standing
at her door where the glowing Italian
sunshine streamed down through blos
"Tbe saints protect us from such a
grim face as your's, Kathlina !" cried a
neighbor, balancing a basket of fish on
her head, arshe tripped by. "Don't you

"Ah ! That's the way the English have
"Go away! I want no more of your

Ninetta retreated, fairly appalled by
the sharpness of her neighbor's tongue
and voice ; and Kathleen stood gazing
fixedly into the sunset, with eye that
saw not a shade of the carmine glow.
" I thought once that 1 should never
pity her," mused Kathleen, but that waa
before my babies died. , I have felt the
serpent's tooth in my own heart since.
Poor lady ! and she is dying of a broken
heart. I wish I could die 1 "
The next evening, as Mrs. St. Leger
was lying on the sofa by the open win

and velvet-smooth lawns, a slip of white
paper came fluttering down upon her
lap as softly as the floating petal of an
orange-blossom. And, rudely scrawled
upon it with a pencil, she deciphered

Mareo Silvedo sat at his cottage door,
smoking a short pipe of some dark:, fra

iron-grey hair and keen black eyes. Two

were playing round him, and when Mrs.

felt tbe blood grow chill around her heart
Was tbe faint light of hope that had be-

Mr. St. Leger was about to re-enter the

passed over Nelly's head had not altered
her to the mother's wietful, loving eyes.
She was the " little Nelly" of the weary,
long years ago.
"Nelly! Nelly! she cried, wildly;
" don'.t you remember your mother?-'
And Nelly St. Leger, with the flood
gates of memory wide opened in her
heart, fell sobbing on her mo thei's breast.

Mareo Silvedo, who had been gazing
in blank astonishment from one to the

I had just buried my youngest

don't grudge her to the signor."
Kathleen, standing at tbe door as the
carnage rolled by the next day, with
Nelly sitting between her father and

We hear recently a great deal of the
example ot f ranee, and irof. 1 rice is
among those who point admiringly to her
in this crisis. JNow. as every one knows,
the savings of people in England, Ger
many and America, are deposited in
banks, whence they are loaned and be
come utilized as capital ; in France the
peasants heard their savings in eld
stockings and secret corners. To with
draw from either of the countries so large
an amount as that of the indemnity paid
Germany would greatly disturb trade;
but the peasants, patriotically unearth
ing their hoardings of secret gold in ex
change for government bonds, enabled
the state, to the surprise of all, to pay
her heavy penalty without distress or
financial disturbance. But this was an
exceptional position. We are scarcely to
argue therefrom that hoarding is the
true principle : that a nation is better
off because its work-people hide thir
saving-, withdrawing them from public
ue rather than -placing them in oanks
where they may become active capital.
Frof. l'nce attributes the successful pay
ment bv France of the German indem
nity to "the practice of one cf the very
greatest of economical virtues t-he had
saved." Now, it was solely due to the
manner irr which her savings had been
held. The fact seemed to
have dazzled every body. Tbe
example of the French peasant is now
held up on all sides that he lives tne
narrowest and most restiicted of lives;
that his excessive economical spirit not
only limits his comforts, but keeps him
ignorant, superstitious, ouu, spiritless,
hopeless, (the tragedy of the French
peasant-life is only too well told in the
pictures of Millet ;) that he has neither
intellectual life nor any grace of art of
refined civilization these facts are noth
ing to the economist ; the peasant has
drudged and boarded; he has refused
himself and his family ease and comfort,
and hoarded; he knows neither art, nor
literature, nor science, but be has
hoarded ; he lives a li e scarcely better
than that ot the beast of the field, but
he has hoarded; his savings have nour
ished no industries, nor rewarded any
art, nor promoted any intellectual end,
and he himself has done his best by mere
restriction to limit the productive re
sources ot hie lana ; out naving savea
and roarded with the instinct with which
a dog hides a bone, he is held up for ad
miration ; Ibis sort of thing luny ex
plains the shudder with which people
generally hear the name of political
economy. It is tTue, there must be
economy; there muut bo saving, but
there is economy and economy. The real
cause of the more prosperous condition
of France is not starved existence, but
sustained and anspeculative production.
There is les concentration there, less
wild overtrading; there are more diflu
sion and old-fashioned relation of pro
duction to consumption. This equable
and uniform production is like a stream
that is fed by ten thousand springs and
many affluents; it flows steadily on,
calm, perennial, beneficent, but our spec
ulative and spasmodic production is too
much like a mountain river, that in one
season comes down in a flood and deluges
the land, at another subsides into a
rivulet, and all the land is parched.

But few of our oldest citizens do not

what is now known as the Pringle farm,

was a respected citizen and a member of

or thereabouts. From here they re

his wife had a falling out, and they both
went out of nights, pretending to Iisent
to the song of the nightingale, which re

The City of St. John.
St. John, which has been brought inte
such unfortunate prominence by the
recent and terrible conflagation, is the
chief city of New Brunswick. It is
situated on the St. John river which
empties into the bay of Fundy, and is
about one hundred and twenty-five miles
from Halifax. The citv was thoroughly
English in its structure and
characteristics. Many of the old families
in the place descended from lories who
lef the United States during the revolu
tion, or at its close. Trinity church,
which was the historic church of the
city, was built in 1 88, and contained
the royal arms taken from old Innity in
this city in the great fire of 1776. The
church was a wooden structure, and was
destroyed in tbe recent conflagration,
which was the only serious fire the place
has suffered for forty years. Since the
war St. John has improved greatly in
business, population and appearance. Its
population more than doubled in ten
years, and at t he time of the fire exceeded
50,000. It had more enterprise and
energy and seemed more like an Ameri
can city than any ether Canadian city,
except Toronto. Some of its public
buildings, particularly the new poatoffice,
were very fine. It dealt very largely in
lumber, which was floated down the
river from the heavy wooded upper coun
try. Its location made it one of the
depots of the fishing iuterest. Its clone
connection with the United States, with
which it had constant communication,
gave it a growing commercial importance.
Within a few years it has been one of
the favorite summer resorts, a centre
from which visitors radiated in all direc
tions. The St. John river in summer u
one of the most beautiful in the world,
while the sail from 1'ortland down al on
the coast of Maine and through the bay
of t und v is unsurpassed, ine aestruc-
tion of the business portion of the city is
a terrible calamity ; it is like destroying
the lungs on which the body depends tor
its vitality. The appeal of the impover
ished people for assistance is a strong
one, and is enforced, by every considera
tion of sympathy and humanity. New
Brunswick ought to belong to the united
States, and St. John should be the
eastern city of the union. Her interests
are chiefly American. anJ the kindness
of our people toward her, in her present
extremity, will strengthen the American
feeling which is already strong in her
A gentleman from Monotony tells a
rather interesting story about a pair of
snapping turtles. He is an old plains
man, and a few days ago took his shot

ponds than in Colorado, and apparently
weighing about forty ponnds each.
They are a very shy bird, their beads

alarm, but being a good shot, the hunter
succeeded in blinding both of them,
and bothering them so that they were

The contest between instinct and reason
was kept up more than an hour and a

at the end which time a ranchman living
near by came along and assisted tbe

Here they were kept in a sheep-pen, nav-

Cossacks and Roumanian Ladies.
When the first troop of Cossacks rode
through Bucharest the Roumanian la
dies were very anxious to see them, and
the long avenue was lined with carriages.
A column of dust arose, thickening and
drawing nearer. A cry of delight and
impatience passed all along ladies
eajrerly stood up, favored gentlemen
climbed upon the coachbox and the
wheels. The columnof dust approached,
and presently the Cossack lances pierced
it. flittering in the sun. Dark and
colorless masses loomed through it, and
strange but stirring music was in the
air. Not a sound was heard, even while
they passed, except the martial war-soig
of tbe bards who bead each stotnia and
the shrill accompaniment ef whistles
modulated to weird harmony. No rattle
of accoutrements betrays the Cossack;
bis very horse seems trained to move
with silent activity. With that pssn in
one's ears, and the whistles 'creaming
through it, one beholds without aston
ishment these warriors gliding past,
stealthily and swift. One recognizes the
surviving race of an earlier time. To
the same war song, perhaps, marched
the ancestors of theee people when they
overran Russia. Tbe Bucharest ladies
were not a little impressed and not a
little frightened. Tbev looked at each
other blankly, with little shrugs of the
fK ulder to express distaste. One of
them afterward confessed to the London
Standard corresponnent, who describes
the scene, that her Muscovite sympa

Cossack, so ugly and dirty was he.
The register-general, pursuing the
even tenor of his way amid the world's
excitements, has just publUhed hi report
on the public health of 1876. He tells
us that the area of London (taking the
registration division) is 122 square miles,
with 1,500 miles of streets, about 2, WO
miles ot sewers, and 417.7C7 inhabited
houses The population numbered nearly
3,t00,000, but taking in the outlying dis
tricts, "Greater London," as the regis
trar calls it, contains 4,2HC,te07 inhabi
tants, among whom the births were 153,
192, and the deaths 91,171. Some of
these inhabitants live in the Plumstead
marshes, 11 feet below, while the dwellers
at Hampstead are -129 feet above high
water mark. These differences of level
imply different conditions of health ; but
the death-rate was not more than 21.3
per 1000, which contrast favorably with
tbe death-rate in other towns and citiee
within the kinedom and in other parts ot
