Tho Conversion. I'ART II. Above the crowd the lurid boy now stands, The torch of virtue in his freckled hands; The Missionary's pet, he strives to please. And wears his white robe with distressful ease. The turning up of eyes, the cringe of knee. And all the small school of hypocrisy f He gathers In. The pious crowd declare They have their convert, soul and heart and hair. Because, the legend goes, that red-haired boys Are given to naughty, sensual, lawless joys, And that the Devil, clever, crafty sprite, When casting hooks for human souls at night Will bait his lure with girls of tresses red; So runs the story) so the tale is said. First In the ranks with cheerful fife and drum Behold advance the genial Mr. Thrum. With earnest grip, and overflowing Joy -He grabs the shoulder of the lurid boy. With gentle ease, regretful of the task, He seeks the lurid convert's whisky flask And whining says; 'Our ranks, dear convert know, Behind the door Imbibe the half-Jacks flow. In dingy closets, where our garments hang, We keep our little rum and gin shebang. And when ie're dry we drink without offense And never shock the highly moral sense Of those who sit with us in Fort Street pews." Quite right" he said, I thank you for the news," I know that in these lauds I'll make mj' mark, Blest is the sinner who sins iti the dark." Oh, ye who walk the straight and narrow path And still avoid the Saviour's awful wrath; Behold thi- boy, this blazing son of sin, On lly pastures plunging boldly in " Subdued the lecherous eye, and tame the tone Which once called every fleshly song its own. That boisterous boy, who oft in shameful dens Called for the wine and set 'em up again. Is now attuned to chants of Jesus shame! I'ersonilied hypocrisy, behold thy name! Oh, lurid head! Oh, foolish, foolish youth! Go study manliness and practice truth. Y'ou sell your conscience for a loaf of bread And turn to grey that scarletina head. Your brethren of the quill, whom you assailed With ribald jest aud small malignant rail, Might still forgive you if you be a man, And rise above the sour, ill-natured clan, Fight for the truth, forbear the vicious slur. Stand forth a gentleman, and not a cur. Tlio Cholera. Tin: New York Times has a special from Marseilles on the cholera, dated July 30th. It saysrV'Of the total number of deaths in France from choleralhis year, probably the great majority died inside of nine hours after they were seized with illness. Some have not tlied until after being sick a day or more, but the majority of the cases were settled one v'ay or the other within eight or ten hours. At the start there is diarrhoea and vomiting. This usually lasts but a short time. Then fellow cramps and icy chills, and this stage has com monly keen reached 03- the time the patient has arrived at the hospital. If circulation can then be restored and kept up by the use of ten to lif teen grains of acetate of ammonia, the same quantity of alcohol, and by violent rubbing, there is some chanced of recovery, though the chance is slight. But if circulation cannot be kept up death is certain. I11 the last stages some persons are delirous, while others enter into a comatose condition; but the latter part of the disease is generally a frightful t thing to behold. It is simply hellish tor ture. The total deaths in France to date are about 2,300" H. L. TUESDAY. AUGUST 12. 1884. iTEST NEWS FROM ABROAD. San Fkas isco, Aug. 1, 18S4. The cholera is still to the fore iu con vers.nti.tn a'.ul the newspapers. The Secretary of State lias received from Consul Mason a Ion? report on the cholera epidemic now prevailing at Toulon and Marseilles. The Consul says in part : Both Marseilles and Tonlon suffered ter ribly in the eho!era epidemic of 'Go. Daring the nineteen years that have elapsed since then Marseilles has been in several important respects rebuilt. Her pavements, her sewerage system, her water supply, and thtf method of cleaning the streets, inspecting and regulating the maikets, her quarantine regulations and hospital facilities, all are probably unsur passed in excellence by those of any Euro pean or American city. Tho old quarters of the city, ancient Marseilles, which, was scourged so sharply by the plague in for mer centuries, has been pierced with broad avenues. Streams of pure water flow down the gutters. The narrower streets and alleys and the pavements of the principal thoroughfares are washed and swept with such care and frequency as leaves nothing to be desired. As there is no tide to maintain a circulation of sea water through the inclosed ports the in evitable result is that the latter grow foul and pestilent. The same conditions, un mitigated by equally vigorous sanitary measures, prevail at Toulon, and it is thought it was the dredging of the dis used dock there during the months of April and May which developed the seeds of the present epidemic. In spite of this a number of deaths have occurred in the cleanest and handsomest portions of Mar seilles. The attack' of tho chotera has been this year far more vigorous and fatal than the great epidemic ' nineteen years ago, and all indications point to a summer of gloom and suffering for the people of Toulon and Marseilles. All that energy and liberality could perform, all that sanitary science could suggest, has been done, but the pestilence is here, and defies restraint. Tho present situation may be summarized as follows : The epi demic which now prevails at Marseilles and Toulon is Asiatic cholera, imported, beyond all reasonable doubt, from Saigon, China, by the French transport Sarthe to the port of Toulon. At first the disease, was the type medically classified as "be nign," but its malignity has since in creased by its further diffusion and' devel opment under the influence of continued hot weather. In compliance with in structions from the department, this Con sulate has ascertained from efficient sources that no emigrants have recently left either Toulon or Marseilles' by sea for the United States. It should be added, however, that few emigrants for American ports ever embark here, as the steamers leaving Marseilles usually touch at one or more Mediterranean stations before leav ing their final point of departure, and emigrants usually go by rail to this ulti mate port of departure to embark for the United States. It is therefore sug gested that all vessels bringing emigrants or baggage to the United StatesJrom Bor deaux, - Havre, Larochdle, or any other French port not yet declared infected should be subjected, upon their arrival, to the most careful sanitary regulations. Clean bills of health have been refused at this Consulate to all vessels clearing for ports in the United States since the 25th of June, and none such will be granted until Marseilles is officially declared free from contagion. The lower classes dislike and oppose the physicians because they have got the notion that the physicians have been ordered to help the cholera along, in order to get rid of the surplus population. There is a marked decrease in the num ber of cholera cases throughout the dis trict. The Municipal Council has re solved to erect a tablet to commemorate the noble sacrifice of the doctors and Sisters of Charity who were victims of the epidemic. Dr. Petras, who died recently will have a street named after him. There have been seven deaths from cholera in department Ardeche, Marseilles. The port of Puelva, in Spain, has been delared infected with cholera. The ports between Cadiz and Ayamente, both in clusive, are suspected of being infected. At Marseilles it was reported that there had been four deaths from cholera since j noon, and two deaths at Toidoirame day. No serious cases are iu the hospitals there, and the fears that the epidemic would break Znt again are subsiding. Six thousand persons are detained in various lazarettos on the frontier and along the coast of Italy. It seems likely that the Australian feder ation will soon become an active question of British politics. In London a meeting to consider the subject iu the interest of federation was held yesterdaj, and it proved a meeting of much imxortauce. Forster, Lord Ilosebery, W. II. Smith, and various others, including members of Parliament, made speeches to an Imperial Parliament for the Colonies in the near future. A resolution was passed declaring that federation was indispensable to pre vent disintegration. The New Guinea question was the real cause that produced the meeting, and this will doubtless serve to keep the attention of the Government fixed on this question. Lord Eosebery took a leading part in the meeting, and the fact that he has so often played the part of a forerunner to Gladstone leads to the supposition that this meeting fore shadows a new feature of the Liberal policy. A dispatch from Foochow to the Lon don Times states that there is great ten sion in the excitement in that city among foreigners and citizens. The French men-of-war of the port are under steam and cleared for action. High authority in Foochow, however, declares that peace will certainly be maintained. Advices from Shanghai state that Pate noire is pressing the Viceroy of Nankin to obtain from Peking the confirmation of special commercial rights of Franco with the southern provinces. The French Minister offers to withdraw the indemnity claims if privileges for the French tre ex tended. Minister gave audience yesterday to Li' Tong Pao, Chinese Minister, who re quested an extension of time for China to reply to France beyond August 1st. Ferry refused to accede to the request. The Bartholda Statue of Liberty, en lightening the world, has been formally presented by President Ferry to the United States, and will shortly be packed for shipment to New York harbor. The details of the construction are curious. Something light was wanted for transport to the other side of the globe, and something stron g as well, to enable the statue to resist the wear and tear 6f the elements, for at Bedloe it will stand in a very exposed place. It was de cided therefore to make it of plates of very thin copper only an eighth of an inch thick forming an inner and outer skin about a foot aj)art, and to fill the space between them with sand, especially toward the base, so as to give the statue the requisite solidity. The colossal statues of the past were either of solid metal or were filled up with masonry or woodwork. It was impossible to adopt that plan in the present instance; the cost of the metal would have been too great, and the difficulty of transporting insupera ble. As it is, the small plates can be easily unriveted, packed on board ship, and riveted together again when they reach their destination. The sand can as easily be poured in or drawn off for repairs for any particular part. The two skins are to be kept in their places by a gigantic skeleton framework in iron, run ning four-square from the basement to the very crown of the head, exactly like the framework of a lift, and meant to servo that additional purpose when the statue reaches its destination. This solid iron frame is to be carried up into the extended arm, which has all along pre sented a mechanical problem of peculiar difficulty, its leverage with the weight of Whole No. 1485, the torch being very great indeed. Tho framework, therefor, runs down almost to the center of thebody and well below the center of gravity. Some people -aud among them Mr. Story, the great Ameri can sculptor thinks the statue will never stand, and that the winds and waves will play havoc with it. It is not solid enough, and neer can be with its epidermis of mere copper and sand. If it conld not bo in solid metal like the older works, it might have been in masonry or wood covered with copper plates. But this is a question for engineers rather than artists, and the engineers are quite convinced that ''Liberty' will resist tho Atlantic storms. The New York 2'imcs prints a pago article giving tho inside history of tho Union Pacific Railroad. It tells tho story of Dillon's resignation of how Ed munds put a check on rascally legislation last Spring, and put Mr. Adam's in Dillon's place. Tho article concludes as follows: "The Union Pacific now owes the Government $33,530,512 subsidy bonds, en which the interest unpaid amounts to $19,054,480 and is increasing at the rate of $1,000,000 a year. This becomes due in twelve years. It has $27,299,000 first mortgage bonds and enough others to bring the bonded debt up to $117,487,492. with $61,000,000 stock, a total lien of nearly $232,000,000, a sum sufficient to build the whole road three times and to spare. "The road is almost bankrupt. Paral leled hv other lines to Orrden with threa completed transcontinental lines, it is hardly able to earn its bonded charges. Weighted with illegal debts it is stagger ing to insolvency. The earnings are fall ing away, trains are being taken off and its country is being invaded by rival lines. Hates of fare and freight are fall ing. It is competing with roads having one-third its debt. The Union Pacific has seen its best days. Having robbed it of its blood, Gould now seems ready at last to throw aside the wreck, provided he can escape the penalties provided by law. His stock and bonds have been largely disposed of to others. They must suffer from the shrinkage, which lias re duced stock to one-third of its former value.1 ' The Missouri-Pacific and St. Louis and San Francisco Hail way officials received a notification ou the 30th ult. that the At- i t t :r 1 it. rr iuquu uini jl aciiie nan uuuiieu iuu xruus- continental Association of its purpose to withdraw from that association ninety days from the 18th inst.
