llig; Profits in Opium.
It has long been known that greut
sums were being made by English mer
chants importing opium into China.
Years ago the house of Jardine, Math
eson & Co. was among the largest im
porters ot opium into cnina, ana so
enormous were thu profits that three
of the partners, by sheer force of
wealth, expanded into baronets, while
a fourth, the late Mr. James Jardine,
of Drvfcholm. became ono of the lar
gest laud-owners in the south of Scot
land. Sir James Matheson, spent up
ward ot $1,000,000 in buying land in
tho Highlands, and tho latter left bo
sides over 3,000,000. Mr. Magniac,
tho cx-membcr of parliament, who left
$1,000,000, was also a member of this
firm. Sir llobert Jardine, of Castle
