Fuit Ilium I All other topics, foreign mod
domestic, pale to-day before the fierce, lurid
glow In which the brief sun of the Commune
has gone surely down. That evening when the
papers came Out with tidings that the Tuilerles
were in flames, a general moan of astoniihed
consternation burst from the whole heart of
England. No doubt the fact of our local near
ness does far more than the telegraph to bring
home to every one of ns in terrible vividness
the most irreparable calamity of modern his
tory; but I think we feel the loss more genu
inely thaB other European nations who border
as closely on the scene. Germany can hardly
be expected yet to feel unaffected pity
for French sufferings; Belgium it
too anxiously scrutinizing the bear
ing which all these melo-dramatlc
events may have upon her own destinies to do
much more than record their progress. Spain is
not in the habit of showing national sympathy,
and mar be granted to be well occupied enough
if she is, however silently, learning the lesson
of her neighbor's latest revolution. But Britain,
selfish, phlegmatic Britain, is grieving with the
grief of a near and dear friend over the smoking
ashes and corpse-littered streets of Paris. We
all thought that the world had heard the last of
reigns of terror there, and even now we can
scarcely believe that this horror is a reality, and
that we are again face to face with the scenes of
'92. The Archbishop of Paris shot, the women
of Paris in the forefront of every deadly design,
the constant tramp of the condemned of both
eezes to the human shambles every Incident is
a ghastly repetition of the Red days of eighty
years ago. The public feeling was well shown
by the prompt, spontaneous despatch of
Captain Shaw, with all the Metropolitan
Fire Brigade that could be spared, to help in ex
tinguishing the flames. The moment the idea
was struck out it was vigorously acted on; the
Board of Works voted money, the Government
supplied a ship; and though, when the men were
actually en route, a polite despatch from M.
Favre announced that the fires had been so far
got under that he need not trouble them to
come, the spirit which prompted the action will
not lightly, we may hope, be forgotten by the
Parisians when they have time for sober
I have just met at my club' one of Lord
Minto's sons, who has managed to escape safe
and sound from Paris. He and two brothers moved
heaven and earth to get into the city last week
with the Versailles army, little thinking what
was to come, and, once there, they would have
given anything to get out again at once. The
very evening of their arrival, strolling out from
their hotel, they were Impressed in the Rue de
Rivoli, and forced to work at the pumps from
seven o'clock till three A. M. Shells were fall
ing day and night In all parts of the city, and in
the general confusion there was every moment
serious risk of being shot or bayoneted by some
irresponsible Yersailllst private. A young
English officer of engineers, whom I remember
at Eton, was arrested as a Communist, and only
saved from summary execution on the Place de
la Concorde by the appearance on the scene of
a friendly French official at the critical moment.
My friend saw one of the Times' special corres
pondents come in with the holes of a rifle-bullet
clearly cut through his clotkes without wound
ing him, a good instance of the risks that "spe
cials" have to run.
So the Senate has ratified the treaty, and our
commissioners are already upon the Atlantic
again, with pleasant memories, no doubt, of the
festivities which have relieved their working
hours at Washington. I hear that Lord de Qrey
is to be made a Marquis, in recognition of the
sterling value' of the results achieved. The
'members of the Anglo-American Association
naturally feel a special satisfaction in the near
prospect of the realization of one of the fore
most items in their programme, and purpose to
celebrate the occasion in true British fashion by
Inviting the commissioners to dinner and
speeches as soon as they reach home. Earl Rus
sell consented to postpone his hostile motion oa
the treaty till all the papers on the subject,
should be formally before Parliament, and as
the houses have now adjourned for the Whitsun
tide holidays, his field-day is far the time being
postponed. The general feeling seems to be
that, considering the band he had in the un
lucky business at first, he can hardly be ex
pected to see himself written down wroug with
out some sort of a protest, and the sooner he
discharges himself of it, the better for ' the
political atmosphere. The final attitude to be
assumed by the Canadian Parliament is a more
serious matter, and the cable accounts of the
very diverse sentiments expressed in various
parts of the Dominion are causing a good deal
of uneasiness among us.
Everybody is pleased by Baron Meyer de
Rothschild's double success at Epsom. lie has
fought bis way gallantly Into Parliament, one of
the first living examples of the wisdom which
removed the political disabilities of his nation;
be has won the Derby and the
C-akes in one and the same week;
and he has been caricatured by Pellegrini in
Vanity Fair. What more can ambition wish
for ? Years hence, doubtless, when Mr. Hughes
has got the House to agree with him as to the
immorality of adjourning over the Derby Day,
the Baron will sit placidly in his place on the
Liberal benches while tbe race is being run upon
the Downs, comfortably conscious that he at
least has no more worlds to conquer there.
Mr. Smaller, the London editor of the New
York Tribune, has gone across the water for a
couple of months. No doubt many of your
readers will not fail to ascribe to their proper
author the London letters which will be contri
buted to that paper during his absence under the
modest signature "11."
An unusual flourish of advertisements heralded
the appearance of "The Coming Race," just
published by Messrs. Blackwood, and the book
is certainly worth reading. A mysterious imagi
nary world, "Vrilya," lying In some subterra
nean region, is discovered by a citizen of New
York, who finds the republic of his ideas super
seded by a state ot thlujj where everything
mechanical is perfect aud everything pictu
resque is past. The inhabitants of Vrllya have
solved many of the most difllcult Lutniu pro
blems thoroughly they have uo wars, because
their weapous are too deadly to keep up ngbliog
even for a day; they have no working claae,
for all work is done by machinery. Everybody
is dtvoted to science, supremely comfortable,
and supremely uninteresting. They are quite
unconscious of their own humor when they
gravely propose (of counse in the Interest of
science) to dissect their discoverer on his first
Seven hundred thousand member! of trades
nnions having agreed to settle all disputes, for
the future, by arbitration, looks m If the great
problem of harmonielng labor and capital were
tending toward solution.
A telegram from Cambridge this morning an
nounces that the first prize for English decla
mation, a handsome sliver cup, engraved with
the college arms, has been awarded at Trinity
to George Lockhart Rivers, of New York, scho
lar ot the collage, who was last week rowing in
the head boat on the Cam.
Everybody knows how often the London
Daily Aew outstripped all its British competi
tors in the earliness and accuracy ot Its accounts
of the great events of the late Franco-Prussian
war. A few nights ago I had the good fortune
to be taken behind the scenes and shown some
specimens of the efforts by which these results
were achieved, the showman being Mr. Skinner,
the Daily Kews correspondent with the Crown
Prince's army at Versailles. From behind a
small table cunningly placed in a corner of Ms
double drawing-room, that the greatest possible
number of his assembled friends might
have him in view, he told most graphically
how the news of Sedan was carried to the Lon
don public. Straight from the battle, which
they had been admirably placed for seeing, he
and the world-famous Dr. Russell, of the Time$,
spurred off to a railway station they knew of
many miles away in neutral Belgium. No less
than six times were they stopped and interro
gated on the frontier, till they found themselves
still seven miles from the only available train,
with something nnder half an hour to do the
distance in. Whip and spur one may imagine;
they have three miles yet to go, and from a hill
top, actually In sight, the thin smoke flew of
their locomotive hurrying across the country,
when down come one herse and rider a regular
post upon the slope. To the honor of journal
ism be it recorded, the rival writer waits till his
fallen friend is In the saddle again, and, racing
against time, both just catch their train. Brus
sels Is reached the same evening, they sit up all
night to write, start at 11 A.M. for Ostend,
cross to Dover, hurry to London, and in the
next morning's Times and Daily Nevot the two
versions of Sedan come out side by side. We
"who sit home at ease" in war-time scarcely ap
preciate, I expect, the indomitable energy which
goes to furnishing those vivid pictures of events
which are served up to us from day to day with
our breakfast tea and toast.
Our university local examinations for women
are clearly meeting a want. Last year the
number who presented themselves before Cam
bridge examiners was 86; this year it is 127.
This right to higher education is one of woman's
rights which nobody will grudge them.
