Sir, If it would be " folly to send an envoy to
London, or for the King to go there while the British
Commissioner here is not on friendly, or any official.
relations with this Government," would it not be i
equally folly, under the same circumstances, to make
a further application to the Board of Immigration ?
And would it not be sheer imbecility to apply to the
Board as at present constituted ? Why, how often,
and with what effect has the application been already
made i It is but a few days ago the President of the
Board informed a small meeting that efforts were
being made to introduce Europeans. And there was
some talk about Chinese and their women. This is a
reason why application should not be again made to
the Board ; money can be found to introduce Por
tuguese, money for Germans, money for Norwegians,
money to squander on fitting out vessels to bring
savages end cannibals from the South Seas, money
for bringing Chinese ; but when the question of
East Indians arises, not only is there not a dollar to
be found for them, but after repeated applications by
those reouirin? their services. Government will not
utter a word, or make a scratch of a pen, costing
nothing, to enable memorialists to help themselves,
action by the Government being necessary before
they can move in the matter ; but, on the contrary.
do all in their power to defeat their endeavours, put
them off with empty expressious, and iu public
documents suppress their applications. Why is this?
The answer is short. They are British subjects.
Let the Gazette speak. It says on the 17th of
November : " The question of Hindu labor has been
discussed here too often with matters which ought to
be irrelevant as for instance, the probability that
the introduction of such labor would or would not
cause British influence to predominate, and the
ulterior or personal motives which may actuate cer
tain persons who have urged its introduction." And,
io spite of this, the Gazette would again have memo
rialists apply to the Board of Immigration. Can the
Gazette state who, besides the gentlemen that have
held office since the election of the present Sovereign
to the throne, are those who have discussed this
matter, and raised the objections spoken of in the
above extract ?
Is it not far better for those requiring the services
of these East Indians to take warning from the past,
and act for themselves, rather than trust to others
who have so often put them off, and who have seemed
to memorialists to have determined, if they could
prevent it, that none of those people should come to
The Gazette now admits that it is worth while to
make a trial of Hindu labor, and to make it soon.
What do the clients say ? those men who have for so
long a time prevented it, and who still, perhaps,
retain sufficient power to prevent it in future T Will
they accept their advocate's plea, and bow to the
verdict that his professional tact sees can no longer be
plausibly avoided, or will they avail themselves of
the miserable alternative also suggested by him that
the distrust they (advocates for the introduction of
East Indians) so often succeed in arousing against
any projects which they favor have undoubtedly had
much to do with the delay during the present
This is turning the tables with a vengeance real
spirit-rapping ; statements not much to the credit
of certain officials were openly made in the last
Legislative Assembly, but were not answered or
rebutted. No investigation took place They were
simply quashed by what the Gazette was pleased to
call a "Kruppt Parliament." They are now stale,
but it will not, therefore, be thought wonderful that
those who believe in their truth think they have real
cause for distrust.
" Oh wad some power the giftie gi'e us,
To see ourselves as ithers see us."
Perhaps the Gazette will play the role of that
" power." and condescend to state the reasous for
distrust which that journal, with its supporters
and clients, entertains, as against the advocates for
Coolie labor with a view to its removal. L.

The Falkland Islands have awi area of 5.000,000

proved very profitable to tne present settlers,

to the Hawaiian group ; but has none of the advan

export is not likely to figure so largely in Pounds

The Falklanders are grassing down their islands
and it is expected will run about three million

Gladstone's Review or the Work of His
The new Lord Mayor of London gave the cus
tomary banquet at Guild Hall, on the 9th ultimo.
Nearly one thousand guests attended. Gladstone.
Clialloiiiel Lacoeur, the French Ambassador, and
Condostaulos, the Greek Minister, were received
with enthusiastic cheers. The American Minis
ter was also present. Gladstone, in reply to a
toast to Her Majesty's Ministers, said that the
abundant harvest was one fortunate circumstance
for Ireland. It would be the duty of the Min
isters to carefully examine the condition of the
law in regaid to the wants of Ireland, and if
they found occasion to believe its provisions were
insufficient for the happiness of the people, they
would not scruple to call on Parliament to deal
with the subject in a epirit of equity and justice.
Illegitimate influences are at work in. Ireland.
The maintenance of public order is to be con
sidered before the improvement of the law.
Those who 'wish to occupy evicted farms are ob
structed by menace, intimidation, crime and the
infringements of the rights of free citizenship.'
Although the Government is anxious to promote
a practicable improvement in the land laws, yet
we recognize as a duty above all others the duty
of enforcing the law for the purpose of order.
The obligation is incumbent upon us to protect
every citizen in the enjoyment of life and pro
perty, and it may be that under certain circum
stances we may be compelled to ask for a certain

increase ot power. e win never anticipate
sucli a contingency, yet if it arises we will not
shrink from the obligations devolving upon us.
Although the Zlu war is ended, yet another
struck has been begun in South Africa, which,
I am sorry to say, has not yet terminated. As to i
India we have not vet accompnsnea an we wish.
Some portion of Afghanistan has been restored to j
more hopeful condition, v e nave oeen aoie to
diminish by 30,000. men the lorce engaged in
Afghanistan. Referring to the Eastern question.
Gladstone said : " The late Premier justly stated
that if the treaty of Berlin was carried out it
would be very beneficial, and that England
would not shrink from the obligations ol the'
treaty. When we came into power we deter
mined to uphold tne treaty. e ueny iuui we
are enemies of Turkey ; on the contrary, we have
pursued a policy by which lurkey may continue
to exist. To justify that existence two things are
necessary, the fulfillment of international obliga
tions, and-that the condition of Ottoman subjects
be rendered tolerable . by equal laws, ino pro
gress has yet been made on the gjeat question as
to European concert. . N e aid not wisn it to ot
the duty of England to take upon itself alone the
obligations of the treaty, of Berlin, but we
wished to promote concert Dy amicaoie means.
We have just received a telegram from tne aui
tan informing us that he has good hope that
during to-day or to-morrow highly satisfactory
news "will be received from Dulcigno." Glad
stone brought his speech to a close with a toast
of heath of the Lord Mayor.
Prince George of England about to Visit
A flvin? siuadron is about to leave or has just left
England for the Pacific, under the command of Ad
miral the Earl of Clanwilliam. on H. M. S. Biccbante,
with the royal princes, sons of the Prince of Wales,

flagship aud other vessels of the squadron. At Vigo
His Koyal Highness Fnnce Arthur ictor or tvaies
will leave the Bacchante and proceed to England,
where be will enter the army for which be is destin
ed. His Royil Highness Prince George ot Wales
will remain on board the Bacchante. The squadron
will then sail from Vigo for the Pacific, coming
through the straits of Magellan and calling at the
principal ports, including San Francisco, on the wy
up this coast to Esquiraault. At this station the
ships will refit, and after a stay of ten days or two
weeks will sail for the Sandwich Islands, Hongkong
and Singapore. From China the Bacchante will go
to England via the Suez Canal, so as to reach Ports
mouth in December of next year.' The remaining
ships of the squadron will proceed homeward by
way of the Cape of Good Hope. At San Francisco

The Oleander Poisonous. It is stated that
the oleander " ia a deadly poison, and may fre
quently prove a treacherous fondling if not care
fully watched. It is one of our most beautiful
plants when covered with its large rose-like
blossoms, but in these blossoms the weapon
of death resides. A case is recorded ol a child
having eaten a few flowers and being poisoned by
the same, lhe "Annals of the Peninsular War
state that a number of trench soldiers went
out foraging near Madrid, and returned laden
with fruits of their search. One of the number,
with a view of securing some wood to make skew
ers forthe meat, cut a quantity of oleander
boughs, and, having stripped them of the bark,
used the wood in the meat. The result was that
oirtf Uwelvo who ate of the roast seven died and
the rest were dangerously ill. lhe poisonous
principle is so subtle that its exhalations alone
are sufficient to cause serious accidents and even
death to those who recline or sleep for any time
under their iufluence. It exists equally in every
part of the plant, but it is considerably weaken
ed by cultivation."
