as if this continent were not large
enough to tight on. Let us bring cool
reason to the appreciation of this con
tingency. As England is the greatest
naval power iu the world, and as our
navy has more reference to hers than to
all othett in the world put together,
let us leap with a hound over all pro
babilities luto the possibility of a war

intelligent mind believe that England
alone, or with tbe help of France or
Germany; could or would send a fleet
of 50,000 men across the ocean and in

whole week to land 25,000 ineu with
their armament, if no opposition were ,
made to them. It would take months
of preparation to collect ships of war
aud transports for such an expedition, j
The sub-iniiriue telegraph would give
us a morning bulletin of the operations
—the very number and names of the ;
ships and every other particular. We
should know the very hour when they
weighed anchor for America. What

But in case of this almost unsupposa

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, SATURDAY, JANUARY la, 1877.
I was born in a oountrj not ill-peo
pled with ghosts ; and gboata, as we sll
know, from the wrath of Patroelu*
downwards, make tbemselvee very use
ful to the poet. But here again I have
been unlucky. It was my mother's maid,
riot I, who beard tbe silks of a spectral
lady rustling behind ber late at night
in tbe long gallery at borne, and who
had not courage enough to turn round
and heboid the ghastly visage which
probably mirmounted them. Once, too,
MO old »bephevd came in from tbe
mountain valleys to narrate bow, 00 a
mid winter night, as he drove sheep
pasot a lonely farm, an old and saga
cioaa dog howled sad showed evident
signs of terror, creeping tremblingly
bark with it* yoaag comrade to bis feet,
tiefore his master's duller eye discerned,
as it soon did. with awe, a white woman
with a child in ber arms, doomed, as
she told him, for her guilt to vauder
restlessly aloug the wilds, and suffered
one night every year to appear and tell
ber story. .
But unluckily then I was too small a
child to be allowed to listen to his
thrilling narration, which surprised my
; father very much, for tbe nan was so
i ber and bad no motive for its invention.
I passed the boose near which this
strange meeting took plice, left unten
anted aud desolate for twenty years or so
in conietjuence, and I could not help en
vying my father's good fortune, who at
least bad seen the man who saw the
ghost. I have always remained one re
move further oft—a decided disadvan
That was my position when, on the
lovely lake of Hawcswater, a worthy
friend of mine told me how a man be
knew, once fishing at midnight, under
beautiful Wallercrag (where, it is well I
known, sleeps the imprisoned spirit of j
l the Viscount Lonsdale of George tbe !
Second's time), heard a crashing sound
; as if tbe whole mountain were Calling I
< dowu on him, and fled, smashing his
fishing-line iu the fall, and thenceforth i
j foreswearing fishing rather than run
the ris« of meeting tbe grim ghost,
which he thought was then breaking
Those bounds were »et to it with dif- j
Acuity by a conclave of the clerw nf
the period, one of whom had pursued
it up the river to the lake whence it
hows, kuocking hii shins sadly against
the stones in its rocky bed, but still
tnanfulty holding fast to the Book of
Common Prayer, and reading from it
the passages which act as exorcisms.
When at last the spirit, so compelled,
showed symptoms of resting beneath
Wallercrag. the brave parson, jointly
with several of his reverend brethren,
iat°pPA4l , oA n tfui»C - 9l)lt in, »iA»l4 hul/
had laiu him
For ever and ever and aye.
But a voice from the mouutain-hollow
mockingly echoed back, time after time,
tiie spirit's ultimatum:
No, for a year and a day.
And how far tbe assembled priests
succeeded in making him desist from
his counter-proposition remains to this
day a little uncertain. At least my
llaweswater friend knew a man (you
see I never get any nearer to ghosts
than that),*wbo bad many a time heard
a carriage coming down tbe steep banh
ou which Lowther Castle rises above
the river of the same name, and held
open tbe gate for it at the bottom, as in
duty bound. But he knew well that
tbe carriage held an occupant who bad
no longer any business with this world:
and as he described tbe matter, "some
times his coachman and bis horsee had
their beads on ,lnit oftener they had
not " — HUickttood?s M tgazint.
Diseases of Our Own Causing.
On an average, one-balf of the num
ber of our patients treated by a hospi
tal-surgeon suffer from diseases due
primarily to a want of kno • ledge of
the laws of health and cleanliness. Ist.
Tbe ignoraace of bygenic laws, wbicb
atTect so disastrously tbe health of the
rich as well as the poor, exists chiefly
in regard to dress, ablution and venti
lation. This starement may, at first,
appear startling, but an enumeration
of tbe diseases that can be constantly
traced to tbe above causes will show
upon how sound a basis tbe statement
rests Tbe following are examples:
Varicose ulcers from dress, chest-dis
i eases and fevers from imperfect venti
lation Tbe vast number of uloerated
legs treated in out-patient department
of hospitals, in work-bouse infirmaries
and in private practios, arise from van
cose veins. Now. a varicase ulcer ii
called a distended coodition of veins oi
the leg. which base to sustaia the pres-;
sure of the blood caused by gravitation.
The most frequent and flagrant cause of
obstruction is in the ordinary elastic
garter Children thonld never wear
them at all. as the stockings can be per
fectly well kept up by an attachment
of an elastic band strapped to the waist
band. If garters are worn, it is im
portant to kuow how to apply them
with the least risk of harm; at the
bend of the kae« the superficial veins
' of the leg unite, and go dimply into the
under (art of the thigh beneath the
hsm-string tendons. Thus a ligature
' below tb« knee obstructs all tha super
-1 final seins, but. if the oonstmctioo is
| at»ove, the ham-string tendons keep the
pressure off the veins which rat urns the
Mood tr»xn the legs: unfortunately.
' m«*t people id ignorance oi iha above
f .cts. apply the garter below the knee.
