Another S,lice of Africa. It is said that Louis
Napoleon has decided upon making a French province
of Kabylia, the country of the Kabylia Arabs. A
French letter says : " This Kabylia is all rich, cul
tivated laud, covered with olive trees and corn-fields.
This little nation of 700,000 soul3 possess some mil
lions of acres of the very best laud in all Africa,
watered by three rivers, and teeming with rich har
vests. Tkis little nation comes within forty leagues
of Algiers, and cuts oil the province of Algiers from
that of Constantino, stopping French engineers from
taking their levels for the railway between Algiers
and Plnllippcville, driving people who wish to travel
by land to go south into the Sahara in order to get
to the province of Constantine." Therefore France !
must have it, on the "Ostend plan."
Gossip about Queen Victoria. The Queen not
only attends the camp, but she assumes military cos
tume, and, in addition to the sash and cockade of a
general officer, wears the badge of a Field Marshal.
Nor docs her intei ferance end with a mere show of
command. She gives orders as to the destination of
regiments, and personally superintends tho execution
of her behests. An officer of a regiment, stationed at
Aldcrshot, tells me that her Majesty has been in the
habit of walking about among the men, and looking
into their huts, to satisfy herself that everything is in
perfect order. She frequently, says my informant,
walks down the line and inspects the men's clothing
and accoutrements, taking hold of their coats with
her own royal hands to see if they fit, and asking such
questions as, ' Well, how do you like your new coats?
do they fit ? do they fit?" She seems to have the
same spasmodic ruanner.of speaking that character
ized her grandfather. One regiment recently returned
from the Crimea, has been greatly offended by an ex
pression let fall by the Queen after passing them in
review : Why, Colonel," said her Majesty, ' this is
a regiment of children ; mere boys, mere boys, Colo
nel ; not one of them fit for service." This was un
fortunately said in the hearing of some of the war
riors, whose virility was thus impugned, and the
consequence has been some unpleasant grumbling,
amounting almost to disloyalty. Cor. of Dundee
England and America. "The whole recent policy
of England points to the establishment of closer and

facts indicating a disposition on the part of English
men of position and intelligence to cultivate such in

is true, and of course we know it is desirable. Let
the electric telegraph between the two countries be
kept pace with by its moral counterpart of social
and affectionate magnetism. But let us love wisely
as well as warmly, and to do this, let us thoroughly
understand each other. Before we rush into affec
tionate imitation of the elder brother we are to love
better than of old, let us get all the light we can
upon the differences of character between us.- Home
Curious History of an English Rogue. The
London papers give a long history of the career of
William James Robson, the great Crystal Palace
Schuyler," who, after committing extensive frauds
ipon the London Crystal Palace Association, took to
flight, but was recently arrested at the city of Copen
hagen, Denmark, and brought back to London. His
examination, and the disclosures developed in regard
to his mode of living, his manner of obtaining money,
are decidedly interesting to read, even in this age of
forgers and swindlers. Robson, four years ago, and
shortly after his marriage, lived with his wife in a
single room in the vicinity of Chancery lane, London,
the rent of which was only 4s Gd ($1 12) a week,
and his principal resources at that time was 18s
($4 50) a week, t mally, he got a situation at thirty
Ehillings a week, as accountant in the Crystal Palace,
whence he was promoted to the post of transfer clerk
at 150 a year. In this position it appears that he
stole the shares of stock left in possession of the com
pany by certain parties, just as Carpentier stole those
of Rothschild from the safe of the Northern Railway
of France, sold them and speculated with the money.
He soon owned chemical works in Bowling-green
street. He then took a fitshionable residence Kil
burn Priory furnished it in a style of great elegance,
established his brougham, two dog carts and six
horses, two of the latter alone having been purchased
for 540 ; kept his groom and coachman in dashing
liveries, and had his three domestic servants to attend
on himself and his wife. Robson next took under his
protection a lady of some celebrity, for whom ho took
a cottage, in the Park Road, fitted it up iu a style of
- surpassing elegance and provided for her a brougham,
with coachman, liveries to match, &c, at 1500
($7500) a year. His attention to this damsel was
perfectly layish, and it was only a few months ago
that, he presented her with an elegant dressing-case,
furnished with silver, which cost the trifling sum of
37. Not content with this, Robson took - under his
care another female who had been a favorite " Colum
bine," on the stage, and established her at a house
in Craven street at an extravagant rate. This lady,
however, he managed to get off his hands by lending
300 to a young gentleman who married her. In
addition to all this, Robson was actually in treaty for
the purchase of ivenil worth Castle, AY orcestershire,
from its present owner, at a cost of 5000 ; but, be
fore the bartrain had been concluded, the bubble
The style in which Robson lived, naturally sug
gested something like inquiry as to his means. With
but 150 a year, every morning he drove to the
palace with a curricle and a pair of horses, which,
for beauty and symmetry, could probably not be
matched in London, or rode on one of the prettiest
nags about town," attended by his servant in liv
ery. He had also the famous trotting mare Eliza,
which was accustomed to trot easily from the Crystal
Palace to London Bridge in 20 minutes, bein- at a
rate of 20 miles an hour. Questions were sometimes
asked, and satisfactory answers always given. He
Baid that his wife had just succeeded to 500 a year,
and that he was making large sums of money from
the theaters from the performance of his plays ; for
Robson is the author of Love and Loyalty" and
"The Selfish Man," as well as " Bianca," a play in
five acts, which was under rehearsal at.Drury Lane
up to the time of his flight. When Robson was sus
pected, he asserted that it was all a mistake, which
could be easily explained, if a messenger were to
accompany him to his house for the necessary docu
ments. The treasurer of the Crystal Palace at once
went with him to Kilburn, where, after saying some
thing about lunch, Robson went up stairs as if to get
the papers, and decamped, sending back a note con
fessing his guilt, but asserting that he was worth
30,000 and would make all right.
A reward of 250 was offered for his apprehension,
which is now claimed by a lady ! A lady's curiosity,
in fact, led to his arrest ! For some days no traces
of Robson could be obtained, "though it is supposed
that lie was concealed in London. He succeeded,
however, in getting out of the country ; and when on
the continent he addressed A letter to a lady, who,
in happier times, had been the recipient of no small
share of his wealth. This letter was delivered to a
milliner, at work iu the house, who, having some
suspicion, detained and opened it, and, tempted by
the reward, gave information to the police author
ities. He was traced to Copenhagen and there ar
rested. His sister was traveling with him as Agnes
Smith. Robson confessed to the officer that brought
him home that he was guilty, and said : " Yes, fin
miserably guilty. I'll make all the reparation I can
before I go. I hope they won't confine me for life
solitary, but I don't mind being transported, for I
deserve it. I carried a ring about me at least three
months with prussic acid in it, and I intended to de
stroy myself, but something came across my mind as
though it were from the Almighty, and the reason I
did not do it was not to make my wife's latter days
miserable, and I threw the ring into the sea." ifis
forgeries, &c, amount to about 30,000 one hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars. At his examina
tions he persists in keeping his handkerchief before
his face. His effects have been seized and sold at
auction. The position of Robson lias had a most
serious effect upon the health of his wife, who was
expelled from her splendid residence at Kilburn, and
driven from a sick bed, and now remains almost pen
niless at Brighton.
Scenes on the Ocean Floor. Besides the count
less varieties of the fucus, the bottom of the sea is
overgrown with the curled, deep purple leaves of the
sea-lettuce, with large porous lichens, and many
branched, hollow alga?, full of life and motion in their
rosy little bladders, thickly sat with ever-moving tiny
These plants form submarine forests, growing one
into another, in apparently lawless order : here inter
lacing their branches, there forming bowers and long
avenues ; at one time thriving abundantly, till the
thicket seems impenetrable, then again leaving large
openings between wold and wold, where smaller plants
form a beautiful pink turf. There a thousand hues
and tinges sliine and glitter in each changing light.
In the indulgence of their luxurious growth, the fuci
especially seem to gratify every whim and freak.
Creeping close to the ground or sending long-stretched
arms, crowned with waving plumes, up to the blessed
light of heaven, they form pale-green sea-groves,
where there is neither moon or star, or rise up nearer
to the surface, to be transcendently rich and gorgeous
in brightest green, gold and purple. And, through
this dream-like scene, playing in all the colors of the
rainbow, and deep under the hollow, briny ocean,
there sail and chase each other merrily gayly-painted
mollusks, and .bright shining fishes. Snails of every
shape creep slowly along the stems, while huge, gray
haired seals hang with their enormous tusks on large,
tall trees. There is the gigantic Dugong, tc siren of
the ancients, the side-long shark with his leaden eyes,
the thick-haired sea-leopard, and the sluggish turtle.
Look how these strange, ili-shapen forms, which ever
keep their dreamless sleep far down in the gloomy
deep, stir themselves from time to time ! See how
they drive each other from their rich pastures, how
they seem to awaken in storms, rising like islands
from beneath, and snorting through the angry spray!
Perhaps they graze peacefully in the unbroken cool
of the ocean's deep bed, when lo ! a hungry shark
comes slyly, silently around that grove ; its glassy
eyes shine ghost-like with a yellow sheen, and seek
their prey. The sea-dog first becomes aware of his
dreaded enemy, and seek3 refuge in the thickest
recesses of the fungus forest. In an instant the whole
scene changes. The oyster closes its shell with a
clap, and throws itself into the deep below : the
turtle conceals head and feet under her impenetrable
armor, and sinks slowly downward ; the playful lit
tle fish disappear in the branches of the marocystis ;
lobsters hide under the thick, clumsily shapen roots,
and the young walrus alone turns boldly round, and
faces the intruder with his sharp-pointed teeth. The
battle commences : both seek the forest : their fins
become entangled in the closely-interwoven branches ;
at last the more agile shark succeeds in wounding his
adversary's side. Despairing of life, the bleeding
walrus tries to conceal his last agony in the woods,
but, blinded by pain and blood, he fastens himself
among the branches, and soon falls an easy prey to
the shark, who greedily devours him. Putnam's
