Should Canada undertake to conquer

A Radical correspondent says that
during the recess ot Congress the

all fides, and by the time Congress
reaassembles the various ideas will
have b.-en matured, and the subject
can be considered intelligently. It is
the opinion ot many prominent Re

wholly satisfied, they believe that
confidence would le restored in a

A Banker s Romar1ce---Love Stronger Thaa
More than thirty years ago, in the
far-famed school of that prince of
teachers, John Kingsbury, was one of
thetairsi of all the lair daughters ot
Providence, celebrated far and nigh,
as that city has ever len, tor its lovt
Iv girls. "Her school education iln

ever, before having given her youth

should waste her youth and glorious

for the dav to come when he could
call her his own, so he released her

oomiaratively speaking, a young
man, but ono w ho was already mak

beginning to pour iu on every side.
He saw her and was struck las who
that ever .saw her was uot?j with her
grace, her winning ways, her exceed
ing loveliness, and. after awhile, he
proposed. Her heart still clung to
her loved one across tne wiue Atlan
tic, but after some time she yielded,
perhaps to the wishes of her lriends,
perhaps to the promptings of worldly
ambition, who can tell? Who can
iathoni the heart of a young and beau
tiful maiden? She became the af
fianced wile of Mr. Peabody. After a
little interval she came back to this
country, and soon alter her arrival,
met her tirst love, and alter events
Justify me in saying, her "only love."
At sight of him ail her former affec
tion came back, if, indeed, it had ever
left her. and Mr. Pesdxaiv. with his
wealth and brilliant
prospects, laiH-a
away, aim sbe clung
with loud aflec-
tion to her American lover, und was
willia; to share a moderate income
with tbe chosen ot her heart. All
was told to Mr. Peabody, and he,
with that manliness that character
izes his every action, gave her up,
and in due time she was married aud
nettled in a city not more than three
hundred aailea from Providence.
What she suffered in coming to a final
conclusion was known to but few.
Her lair cheeks lost their roundness,
and new wan an. j pale her .lovely

others praised her. Those who were
ambitious of worldly honors pro

throw over a man like George Pea

would bestow every luxury upon her,
and place her in a jiosition in London
that would make her lot an envied

never have more thin a limited in-

1 say the nobler part? just ilied her in
thinking that love, true love, wa
more to he desired than wealth or
earthly fame. The painful conflict j
was at length ended. Her true WO- ;
manhood vindicated itself, and she i

ago, hearing all this talked over in a j
chosen circle of American lriends,

given by Gen. Ca-s, at Versailles, it
was thoroughly discussed in all its
length and breadth. Whether, iu his i

held by the commission in the ratio that
the bonds assented by them bear to the

Mr 1". . . "ttllin expressed his
eoafldenee in the desire ot the State of
Daaracsaee to pay its debts. He
thoueht that it would be impracti.-.i-bie
to obtain control ot tho roads by
the plan ptopoMcL
Mr. Duwaidaon, the Chairman, said
that according to the best knowledge
which the committee was enabled to
obtain, there was a disposition in the
State to adopt some such method of
c : --;-ri utr off i he debt. This debt ua
atsiut to"J,ntX!.iKj, of which nearly 98,
OOOjMW was due toi.be railroat'.s. As
au as could be judged, the authorities
would gladly accept the plan.
Mr. W'iliiatus remarked that the
heavy debt of Tenne-see was equiva
lent, so to sjjeak, to a mortgage on
each piece of property within its lim
iln. r'or hwtance, farms in Tennessee
sold for twetuy-hve Kr cent, less than
in Kentucky, all other things Mng
equal. Naturally, therefore, Tennes
see would lie grateful for any practical
plan of getting rid of this horrible iu
cubns. After much more discussion it was
linaiiy resolved that the committee of
five be eteipowered to appotet a sub
committee of three to VLsit Tennessee,
to confer with the State authorities an
well as the railroad- men, w ith a view
to devising a plan by which the State
debt intere-t may be regularly paid,
and the principal, when due, refunded
to the lenders. The committee is
bouud to no specific plan, but will be
guided by the condition of affairs as
they hud them.
Norfolk, Va , hjej maJira Great Port.
S mong tho projects now occupying
.. thoughts of our great capitalists, is
a through route from tho Atlantic to
ti;e Pacific, having its termini at Nor
folk aud San Francisco. The Rich
mond Diipatch states that a powerful
combination is being formed to carry
out tills scheme, and that Mr. A. A.

The design is to make a railway'
from .Norfolk through Virginia and
Western Virginia to the point where
the Big Sandy river foils into the
Ohio. The Washington Chronicle says
'.hat the main object is to brjug freight
from a point ou the Ohio which is
navigable lor large steamers, arid as
the Big Sandy runs iuto the Ohio one
hundred and fifty miles further down
than Parkersburg, the cmisiiig-place
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad,
it is believed that the greater portiou
of the treigbt upon tue Ohio and its
tributaries will be intercepted by the
new route, and that by the time the
CiH supeake and Oaio line reaches this
point, u railway from the Junction
will have been coustructed to Cincin
nati, with a lateral branch to Lexing
ton. The proposed liue will have a
lighter grade than the Baltimore and
Ohio line, over only oue mountain
chain aud through a milder climate.
Maidens Desiring Husbands.
A Paris correspondent, speaking of
the patron saint ot maidens desiring
husbauds, aud the high regard which
is paid to him in France, relates the
loiiowing illustration of his powers:
Some mouths since, a maiden in a
village not tar irom Paris, finding
years stealing away and no suitor for
her hand appearing, bought a plaster
statuette of St. Nicholas, placed it at
the bead of her bed, and night and
morning addressed supplications to it
for a suitable helpmate.
The other day her patience became
exhausted. She lost all confidence in
her saint. Taking the statuette by
the nape of the neck, she threw It
into the street, ejaculating, " Go to
the devil!"
As she threw out the statuette, a
young man happened to be passing
tbe window, lie was bareheaded.
Tbe statuette fell on his poll, and not
only stunned him, but as it broke to
atoms, cut bis scalp severely. Blood
poured profusely mrth. He straight
way went to au attorney and brguuht
suit against the person who had
wounded him. He asked heavy dam
ages. He did not see the defendant of tbe
person and mien made a deep impres
sion on him, and he asked leave to
withdraw his suit.
She, delighted by this termination
of legal proceedings, which had
looked threatening to her, was very
gracious to him, and they walked
home trrm the courthouse in com
pany. He asked leave to visit her.
He soon asked her hand, and thy
were married without delay.
Unearthing of a
Large Amount of Burled
i Louisville Courier-Journal, December 2s.
The gossips of the city were consid
1 erably excited yesterday by the re
port that a targe amount of buried
treasure had beeu unearthed and spir
ited away in a mysterious maimer.
The story readily gained currency, as
it is known to many hvre tbat a num
ber of jarties have searched for hnid .at
treasures in the same locality at va
rious times.
About three weeks aco. a withered.
queer-looking old man, who said that
he was a physician, went to the man
in charge of the limehouse belonging
to the Bridge c.impauy, situated ou
the south bank o: the canal, about
one hundred feet above the eud of the
: new bridge, and stated that he wished
to make some chemical experiments,
! und would pay liberally lor the use of
a certain portion or the house. The
man refused to grant his request, and
he left A few days after he was no
ticed surveying in the vicinitv. and
carefully noting its bearings. The
next day fu; asked permission to use a
portion of the ground near the taaai,
and was told that the bridge company
uau no control over it. ne then had
building material brought to the spot
, auu a sneti nve or six
leet high and
, aouu. iHtuve teei siitiaro ouut over :t
point which ho designated. The
j chinks were tightly closed and a
I stout lock placed on the door. To the
' curious who asked the meaning of
such singular actions, ho toid a plaan
ible story, stating that he STianed to
experiment with dye stulfs, and
j succeeded in deceiviug them as
j to ids real object. After the
: building was completed he was seen
to enter the- shed ia company with
i the man who had buiit it ; a rough
lookiug man, apparently a laborer,
j carrying picks aud shovels. They re
mained in the shed all day, only leav
: ing it after nightfall, and then return
! ing again in a short time, aud until
: late in the night gleams of light were
I detected through the chiuks and cran-
nies of the roughly-coustriabd hut.
, About ten days ago, shortly alter
I night had set in, the old doctor was
i observed to come out, look carefully
j in every direction, re-enter the slieu,
I and then emerge iu a few ntiautes with
j his companion, and bearing between
, them a burden, the exact shape of
i which couid not bo determined btu
which appeari to be weighty, pbtce
it in a wagon neai by, and drive rap
( idly away. the. ucxt u.ty, nor the
next, the DijfsterioBs maple argrq not
s-eu,aud on Sunday tiie curiosity ol
j those who had observed their actions
i overcame ail other cousideialious, and
: an entrance was forced into tho hut.
! lu one corner pf ;lie nui was a hole
in the earth Bva or six teet in daime
. ter, and six or eight feet deep. At
j one side of the pit was a pusi, the lop
of which cameVithiu two feet of the
! surface ot" the earth, aad in the uper
end of which was driven a singular
i lookiug braso nail. The post was vety
' mu.li decayed, and had evidently
I U-en in the ground for some time.
The vicinity is sttoject to overflow in
I timeot high water, and the earth on
the post had evidently been deposited
by tiie floods. The tools used in ex
! cavatiug were lying jusi as they had
Us-n leu.
The discovery at once brought to
I memory of several residents of the vi-
cinity Utc fact that about rifteeu yaars
; ago a mau who greatly resemnied the
, iutie old man, ac'ompauied by two
. other, spent several weeks iu search
: ing the locality with a divining-rod
aud other appliances used in disco ver
i ing metaisand hi digging. They were
; uiiuece.s.ssS?, atid dually give up ia
; disgust, ileiore they uepartrd, how
I ever, one of the men, while mioxicat
I ed, boasted thai tbeiv was a large
; amount ui gidd and diamonds buried
j somowhere in that vicinity, and thai
I he would Und it if it loua a Uictime.
He was plied with more liquor, anJ
told the eager list.mers that u convict,
vtho had died in prison iu aa eastern
State, had eonlided to oue ot his com
rades, who was also a prisoner at the
time, that a wealthy and eccentric Cu
ban had beea followed from Mew Or
leans by the convict aud a comrade,
and murdered oa the old road leading
from Shippiugsport, where the boats
all landed in those days, to Louisville,
shortly after he left the steamer on
which he came from New Orleans; a
large sum of money in goid, and dia
monds of an enormous value taken
from his person, and the body stripped
and thrown into the river. Surprised
and aiarmeu at the euoirmous bootv
they bad secured, they at Ihy dead of
' uight buried it, aud agreed to leave it
untouched until all risk of detection
'had passed. As the Cuban wtis a-i et;-
tire stranger,bis disappearance excited inimical legislation ; approving of tue
no comment until some time after- j action ofCuUfress iu tho cat ? J.--or-ward,
when all traces of him had been gia, and endorsing the resolution of
lost. The druuken man toid how one of
the murderers was shortly atierward
! killed in a drunken brawl in
New Orleans, and the other recog
j uized as sn old offender, arrested,
tried, and sentenced to a long term in
! tbe peuitentiary, and on his death
I bed revealed the secret of his fellow
j convict: that when tho convict was
released from prison he had entered
j into an agreemeut with himself and
: the doctor, tffee nrolossod to have an
i . . -i ..
! infallible method of discoverm bur
ied metals, but that the search so for
had been fruitless. At this point du
the story one of the treasure-seekers ,
came in and spoke roughly to hltu and !
I hurried him trom the house, aud they
were set n no more. Several attempts
to dieooyer the treasure were made by
j those to whom he related this story,
but always without success, and they
i finally concluded that the story was
, but the chimera of a drunken brain,
j and that there never was any treasure
i burled on the banks of the canal.
The return of the old diictor; his j
J mysterious actions, and the evident
i accomplisbmeiit ot bis object, revived ;
1 the old story, and the discovery of tho !
; hole iu the earth, and the tools which
bad beeu used iu excavating, set the
curious wild with excitement, and.
i hundreds visited the spot yesterday.
: As to what was found iu ihe hole, of,
course is mure ppnjeetare, but that the i
j hole was dug in the mysterious -i
manner described is voucned for as j
i tric!ly true. Such a firm conviction
of the truth of thestory has seised the
i minds of two well-known detectives
I tii2t they have taken the matter iu
j hand, aud will try to probe it to the
; bottom. We trust thev may succeed.
Colenso Come Again.
The last English ecclesiastical trial
that of P.ev. Mr. Voysey differs trom
the most of its predecessors iu the fact
I that a conviction was procured ; but
' what strong facts it took to bring this
about the record discloses. Mr. voy
sey has said very frequently, and with
! great emphasis, that the doctrines of
; the atonement, the incarcerasjpn, and
i others, as ordinarily underM, are
not only wrong, but horribly blasphe-niou-;
further, that though he does
I not deny the truth of the d-ietriaes in
some sense or other, he denies and has
a right to deny, any sense ihat any-
; body has ever put upon tmmf; aud,
i finally, that much ol the Bible is false :
1 and 'minora!, aud that in particular
St. John's Gospel is so bad in its lin- i
! morality and inaccuracy that it cannot j
I be genuine. For these opinions he j

eighteen jears of age, fell desperately

If all the reports tbat reach us are :
true, instances of the above character J

It appears from the report of a careful
survey by a naultcal man, published j
in the.London Shipping Gazette, that
the Suez Cauai in every rv-pect Ls a i
great success, and is working h ind
sotnely; but the most interesting fact
reported is that throughout the t-v.tal
a steady current moves from the Bed
Sea m.o the Mediteir mean, varying
in its velocity from three knots an
an hour, near Suez, to a knot and a
half at the Mediterranean outlet.
This current proves that tbe level ot
