" It ia the last girl I shall send to Europe, said Mr. Brancepeth.

Although as for the reason" " And I will talk. Do you remember young Paul Despard, who came here for yon to get his appointment in the treas ury ?" 'Of course. Why shouldn't I?

" Oh, what is it, mamma ?" she cried.

And the naughty-tempered Miss Jessie picked out her lace ruffles and smoothed out her pink bows, and looked at her mother and laughed. "Would yon, mamma?" said she. "I don't know, Jessie," said Mrs. Brancepeth, wiping her eves so vigor ously that they looked as'if tears had been there. "You know I am old-fashioned.

" Wouldn't Prince Vinca?" "Really, mamma, I don't believe he would. With all his gasconade about adoration, I don't believe he would." "Are you certain, Jessie?" said the diplomatic lady, who was gradually working things in the oirection you wished. "Yon don't mean that she think he is trying to marry you for your money? I should hate to nave people say you had bought him." "People will say that anyway. It isn't in human nature not to say spiteful things. That is the claw of the original Wild beast in us." " By the way, Jessie." said her mother, "1 have an appointment with Mrs. Lerpinards at 1, and I wish yon would order your phaeton and drive aown to the greenhouse. Durkee has gone to market, and Mrs. Bunco says we haven't half enough flowers for din ner." And her mother sat thinking of tue loveiy picture it would be when the child should come driving baok in all her 6nowy laces and muslins, her uui wreatnea witn its apple blossoms and the carriage heaped with the hot noase uowers. But Miss Jessie did not come home that way. I might, indeed, say that Miss Jessie never came home at all, but mat wouia nardiy be the exact stata. nent. as she drove down the avenue, tak ing back the flowers, and making all tne beautiful picture her mother's tancy bad drawn, and morn, Miss Jeseie descried, some way before her, a tall ugnro with a book under the loft arm. one was not ready for anv definitn mr ley, and shook her reins loose, and took the detour cf a square, to come upon him face to face on the other and nar rower street.

Har pers isatar. Sultan and Khedive. The disturbances in Egypt bring into conspicuous view the peculiar relations between the sultan of Turkey and the nigypuau aneaive. For many centuries Eirypt was subject province of Turkey. It was ruled over by governors appointed by me suiian. xn ion, nowever, Mehe met Ali, who was at that time governor, rose in revolt against the sultan's authority, and made himself master of Egvpt. Mehemet was thus the frunder nf tha dynasty which now reigns at Cairo. The present khedive, Tewfik Pasha, is Me hemet's great-grandson. In 1842 the sult n reoogntzed this new dynasty. and decreed that the Egyptian throne should desoend in Mehemet's family aocording to the law of hereditary succession in Turkey. Still, Egypt did not become wholly independent of the sultan's rulo. It continued to be sub ject to him, in sO far as foreign affairs and the army were concerned. The "Vi ceroy of Egypt," as he was then called, could not send envoys to foraion court 8, but was represented at them by il. m v . . . . - luo AUTKiHu envoys. ror conld the viceroy maintain a native armv or nnw oi ms jwn. iiigypt was garrisoned and protected by Turkish troops. Egypt, moreover, was obliged to rav a larara annual tribute to the sultan. Later on larger liberties were conceded to Egypt by its Turkish suzerain. In 1866 tha title of the Egyptian ruler was, by nrman of the sultan, changed from "Viceroy" fwhioh meant simnlv tha sultans representative in EsrvDti to " ithedive-el-Misr," usually called " Jibedivo," which, in the Arabio tongue, moans " King." At the same time Eervnt was errant A the right to send envoys abroad and to maintain a native army and navy. But the sultan still remained the suzerain (or imperial ruler) of Esrynt : and an annual tribute of $1,875,000 a year was paia land suit continues to be paid) iuuu tun Buiiau s treasury. xnis m practically the relation which exists to day between the sultan and the shedive. The sultan still exeroises a kind of exterior control over Ecrvnt : and claims the right to enter Evot .... a . ii . ii . , i i rj r aim quuu revon, ana 10 depose or bus tain mo reigning Khedive. Meanwhile tho interests of various European' powers - noiaoiy ot England and France have had a singular and complex in- wieiice on me aestimes of lSgypt ; and thoso two powers bv a SVStam called ' Control," have been praoticallv uov- erning Egypt, over the kbedive's hea l, tor ine pusi lour or nve years. England insists on controlling Egyptian policy by reason of the foots that she holds a predominant financial interest in the creat Suez canal; that that canal is the nearest 'uilitary way between Europe and th- uriiisu empire oi muiu; and that eicht per cent of the mercantile tonnage which passes annually thrueh tho canal aoes under the British flag. Besides. Englishmen hold a laree anantitv r.f tho Egyptian bonded debt, ond wish to proteot the payment of its interest bv managing Egypt's financial affairs. The interest of Frmco in sharing tb English control in Ezvpt is two fold. trance, too, holds a large portion ol he Egyptian bonds. Beside t.hia France has recently undertaken to annex Tunis, a neighbor of Egypt, and Mohammedan state : and is anxionx to limit as fir as possible the sultan's influence in North Africa. Both Eng land and France have appealed to the suiian io use his authority to put down Arabi Bey's revolt, and have thus once more acknowledged the sultan's riabt to interfere in Eypt. They both also wish to sustain Tewfik on the Egyptian throne, for he has proved a willine in strument in their hands, allowing their commissioners to practically rule the country. JTouth'a Companion. Arabi Bey. Arabi Pasha, or Onrabi-Bav. a tha Arabs call him, is the son of a promi nent personage in the province of Char kirch, in Lower Egypt, and ia about forty-five years old. He received an xcellent education in a military snhnni He early imbibed progressiva Mena which he has never failed to propagate among his country men. After leaving the mili tary echool he entered the army and re mained for some time in the ranks. Although Ismail Pasha patronized him he did not advance above the rank !of major under that ruler. On three dif ferent occasions he endeavored to obtain the rank of bey or colonel, but Ismail replied to the person advocating his cause: "If I create him a colonel, ha will create a revolt in the resimant un der his command in less than pit months." The truth of Ismail's words was soon made apparent tn his son and successor, Tewfik. who fhortly after his accession eazetted Arabi a colonel. Prior to the 21 nf February, 1881, the date of the milimrv troubles which resulted in the present conflict, he commanded the Fourth regiment of the infantry guard. That Arabi is a man of Rreat determination is evinced by what he has accomplished ever since the beginning of the year. Then ha was coneidered to be the most important factor in Egypt, bnt not even his warmest partisans would have proph esied that in a few months he would venture to defy openly the whole of Eoropt. and carry on his work of dis organization under the very guns of a hostile fleet, especially dispatched for the purpose of overawing him. Mnk little of his power is due to his oratori cal ability, lie is a scholar and is learned in the arts of war. - He is loved by his soldiers as a bold and fearless leader, and has the good will of the Moslem priesthood, which accounts for the sultan's hesitanoy to taka active measures against him, even if he be in- nneo so to do. Strawberry is the newest sbada nf aaathetio red. 3. 1882 A Wedding in Chinese High LMc. Among I he pure Chinese, aad espe cially among me nigher classes, a wed- ding is a long and serious affa r. From the almost Turkish strictness with which females are secluded, it is com paratively rare that a couple see each other previous to betrothal and still more so that there should ba any ao quaintance between them. This has given rise to the necessary employ ment of a character equivalent to the bazvalan or marriage broker of snoieat Brittany, to Mr. toysFanaian Matrimonial Agency of- lice, or the daily marriage advertise ments of our own papers. If your wish is for marriage in tha abstract, the broker will find yon a fitting partner first, and negotiate the transfer after. If you are less purely philosophical, and with to consult your own tastes as well as the interests and increase of the nation, yon are only to name the party, and the broker beoomes your accredited ambassador. There is, however, one preliminary point to be ascertained, Has your intended the same eur name as yourself ? If so, it is a fa al difficulty, as the laws of China would not permit the marriage. If. however. Bu is uoun ana yon are Xie, or she is Kwan or Yu, and you rejoice in any other patronymio monot.yllable, the next step is for the broker to obtain from each a tablet containing the name. age, date a d hour of birth, etc TIiobo are then taken to a diviner and com. pared, to Bee II tne union promises happiness; if the answer is favorable (and crossing the palm with silver is found to be as effectual with fortnne tellers in China as it is elsewhere, and the gates are equal, that is if the station and wealth of the two families are sim ilar, the propotal is made in due form. The wedding presents are then sent. buu ji accepiea me young couple is lit . . considered as legally betrothed. A lucky day must next be fixed for the wedding, and here our friend the diviner is again called upon. Previous to the great day the bridegroom gets n new uat ana tanes a new name, while the lady, whose hair has hitherto hung down to her heels in a single heavy plait, at thessmo time beoomes initiated into the stylo of hair-dressing prevalent among Chinese married ladies, which consists in twisting the hair into the form of on exaggerated teapot and sup porting it in that shape with a narrow plate of gold or jade over the forehead, and a whole system of bodkins behind . On the wedding morning presents and congratulations are sent to the bridegroom, and among tho rest a pair of geese; not sent as we might imagine by some wicked wsg or irreolaimable bachelor, as a personal reflection on the intellectual state of his friend, but as an emblem of domestic unity and nfftction. The ladies, too, n China as well as elsewhere, indulge in a little fashionable crying on the occasion, and so the relatives of the bride spend the. morning with her. weeping over her impending de parture, cr, mce probably,' their own Miinsterhood. Thew do not. how ever, forget to bring come contributions lor her trousseau. In the evening comes the bridegroom with a whole armv nf his friends, a procession of lanterns, a long rod clnth or silk tanestrv emhroi. dered with a figure of the dragon borno on a poie between two men, and a large red sedan covered with carving and ilding, and perfectly close. In this he bude is packed up securely out of ight. aud the whole procession, pre ceded by a land of mnsio and the rafcon, and closing with the bridwV bandboxes, starts forborne- On arrival he w lifted ovci' the threshold, on which a pan of charcoal is burning, probably to prevent her bringing any eril influence in with her. She then performs the kotou to her hus- ands father and mother, worships the ancestral tablets of her new family, and ffors prepared betel nut to the assem bled gut sts. Up to this time she has been veiled. bnt she now retires to her chamber. where she is unveiled by her husband; he then returns, again performs obeis ance to the assembled guests, and par iases oi iooa in company with her hus band; at this meal two cups of wine, one sweetened, the o'her with bi ter herns infused in it, are drank together by the newly married pair, to symbolize that hen forth they must share together 1 fe's sweets and bittars The bride then retires escorted by the matrons present, some one of whom recites a charm over her, and arranges me marriage couch. The next morning the gods of the household and the hearth are worshiped, and the six following days are davoted to formal receptions at home of different mem bers of tho two families or equally formal visits paid to the family of the brido. During the whole of tliis period she still travels in her red-and-gold sedan, and is still escorted by her band of musio and dragon. Temple Bar. Fancy FacU and Figaros.
