The case of Mr. Keiley, the thrice rejected?and
particularly the letter of Secretary
Bayard for the better instruction of
the Austrian Government iu the priori*
pita of free yoverx-inj-nt?has reminded
Euudry newspaper* of an earlier AustroAmerican
episode atdof Daniel Webster's
letter to the Chevalier IJul&eman, Austrian
charge d'aflairea at Washington. The
references to the ii ulseman letter suggest
that it liats been more heard of than read
by those nho refer to it.
The thiones of Europe had been rocked
by civil commotion, and the people of the
United States had been interested observers
of the stirring events. Hungary
had particularly eniibted the sympathies
"*i .? !?.. Munh \*mA
of Americans iuu xiuuga*i?u .c?v??
assumed such dignity of proportion and
conduct that President Taylor thought it
well to dispatch a confidential agent, Mr.
A. I)udl*y Mann, to icqufr.* into the situation
and report.
Of the mission of Mr. Minn the Austrian
Government learned through the
President*!! commut i ration to the Senate.
Thy Austrian Government through its representative
at Wa hington, protested
against the ?U'p? taken hy the President,
and complain* d of inntruciionsgiven to Mr.
3Iann.- In his reply to Mr. Uulseman
Secretary Webster maintained the right
of the United States to make such peaceful
inquiry as Mr. Maun had made, and
resented as uu interference in our domestic
affairs the complaint touching- the
President's communication to the Senate
1b the elaboration of these ideas the acorn
pliebed Secretary of State achieved a
singular mixture of good common sense,
: l.,?
unquestionable lxuerunuuua* ?n,
Bird 'o Freedom flap Joodle. He not only
argued bis case but flavored his argument
with the hoarse ?row! of posaible Americtn
guns in a highly improbable manner,
as if Austria had doneco-and-so the United
States had done thus and-so.
But Mr. Webster was not a man fo
waste words or to uaa them recklessly.
Ho had two objects, which he reveals in a
letter to Mr. Tick nor written within a
month of the Hulseman letter. '"If.you
say that my Hulseman letter is boastful
and rough, 1 shall own the soft impeachment.
My excuse is twofold: 1. I thought
it well enough to apeak out and tell the
people of Europe who end what we are,
and awaken them to a just eeris j of the
growth of this country. 2. 1 wished to
write a paper which should touch the
national pride, and make a man feel sheepish
and look silly who should speak of
disuuicn.
Boastful as Mr. Webster was (a style
which he would not think necessary to
employ in this day) ho did not set up the
absurd proposition that the government
of Austria must accept anybody whom we
may commission to represent us near that
court, or be held "personally responsible."
Neither did Mr. Webster think it necessary
to remind His Benighted Majesty of
Austria that we have certain fundamental
principles, and certain laws enacted agreeably
thereto, for tho government of every
country in which an American may set
his foot.
Mr. Webster was boastful, as he admits,
but he was not utterly absurd, aa a successor
of his has been very recently. No
blood was spilt between Austria and
America a generation ago, and probably
we shall not now incarnadine the ocean
that rolls between.
The litnl Arlemui Ward.
Toronto World.
On Saturday afternoon a batch of reporters
were gathered in the World loft.
Home one having named Artemua Ward,
the Old Gentleman said:
"Artcmus Ward was the father of Bil-|
lings, Twain and all the breed of American
humorists, funny men and comic parugraphers
that we now know so well. I
knew Artemus, or rather Charles F.
Browne, as his name really was. More
than twenty yi-ars ago he came round to
Hamilton on a lecturing tour. After his
droll aud delightful platform address he
invited the local reporters, of which I was
one^down to tho Hoyal Hotel, where we
put in the night in stories aud other en-1
tertainments, aud left with the understanding
that if any of the party ever
camo acrors the humorist agaiu they
were to look him up. Two years
or moro thereafter I was sent
to Oil Spriugs to write up the excitement
then pervailiug all Canada West over tho
discovery of oil in Lambton county. At j
! <* llllln tomnnrmrv hotels. than I
crowded with capitalists Irom all over, I
saw oil the register 'Artenms Ward.' I
inquired of the landlord what aort of a
gentleman owned the name. The description
did not at all tally with that of the
humorist. 'Ilut wait and see him yourself
; he always turns up at dinner time,'
skid the hotel man. At noon a tall, sadlooking
chap came in, and was pointed
out as Mr. Ward. I got talking t> him
and said: "You aro not the Artemus
Ward I know,' and I began to apeak of
the humorist. Thereupon he exclaimed:
44'I am the real Artemus Ward; that
scallawag took to writin' things and puttin'
my name to it. 1 know htm.'
44 'well, wero you ever in the show btuinSai?'
414 Yes. I wafl.'
444 And was your wife's name Bjtsy ?'
44 'Yes, but she's dead now.'
41 While I stayed there I bad other talks
with the man whom lirowne had immortalized.
He had been 'broke' in the show
'bizness,' aud had come to Oil .Springs to
retrieve his fortunes. Whether he did or
not I never learned; but in ray experience
as a reporter I had run across both the
real Artemus Ward and the great humorist
who claimed to be hi*double."

There are several fine titmt streams in
the vicinity of Silverton, and II. G. Uaild.
who edits and publishes The Appeal
there, has become quite a tishologist. Like
all who write or talk about lish, some of
his statements soein almost incredible, a?
the following sample shows: About three
years ago a farmer on Pudding River
built a fish pond and stocked it with year*
ling earn. That winter the river overflowed
the pond, and the fish escaped, and
have since remained in tho river. Not
joug since, a farmer who had a field of
fine (all grain Adjoining the river, notice!
that something bad been wallowing it *
down. There were do tracka ol animaFa?
nothing bat long, irregular, snake-like *
trails leading up from the river. One night
this week the farmer, curious
to know the cause of the
new "roller proceee," posted Limaeif .
conveniently at hand, and in the bright
moonlight stood a watchful sentinel over ^
his field. He had not long to wait before
his vigilance was rewarded by the appearance
of a long train of objecie that came 1
waddling up from the river into the grain. .
Waiting until the intruders had flopped
over a considerable space of groand, the *
farmer made a rush and was almost paralysed
to find that the visitors were carp
who were feeding like swine upon his succulent
wheat. Procuring a club be killed .
a dozen of the largest and took them home. ,
The fiah displayed considerable awkward '
agility in escaping to the river. That farmer
will have fresh fish all winter. Carp
are known to be very fond of wheat, and
it is a scientific fact that they can sustain
life oat of their native element for several
hoars at a time.

A new process for preparing chemical
fibre by the use of sulphuric acid has been
introduced. By means of it it is intended
to prepare vegetable fibre for spinning
and oilier uses, eliminating the silica and
other incrustating substances that bind
the fibre together. Tue principal feature
of this process is the treatment of fibre
with a solvent containing hydrofluoric
acid and sulphuric acid.
In a paper on Use inouvo power 01
dynamo-electric machines, by Mr. .Saunders,
which was read about me middle of
October tnfjre the Dagineer Society,
King's College, Loudon, it was mentioned
as the result of many experiment*} that
1,000 feet of gaa used to produce incandescent
electric lighting by means of a gas
engine would give twice as much light as
it would if employed as an illuminant in
the ordinary way.

Some Interesting Remarks on the
State of the Holiday Trade.
We take a great deal of pleasure in saying
that up to date oar Holiday Sales are
considerably ahead of last year, notwithstanding
the lower price of goods, and the
unsettled condition ol the nail business.
We think it due to ourselves to make
this statement publicly, as we know of no
better advertisement; for while we have
our many faithful customers to thank for
it in part, we think it is largely due to the
excellent selections which we have made,
especially in our Book Department, and
also to the fact that our goods are sold
uniformly cheap?not a bait here and
there, with fancy pricts somewhere else to
more than make it up, as is often the case.
Of course we allow no one, in or out of
the Book Business, to undersell us, and
when we find the British Poets sold else*
where for 55 and 05 cents we make that
price oars, though we know ours are better
editions, and that the profit of 10 or li
percent is too small for a legitimate retail
(or wholesale) book profit, and any business
man will bear us out We expect to
sell you Books and Stationery as long as
you will let us, and to do it we have to buy
them, and to keep on buying them we
nave 10 pay ior mem, auu w pmj mt uicw
we moat charge a reasonable profit. Now,
that is all there ia in it, and while we will
continue to meet even illegitimate competition
(competition that sella at less than
a legitimate profit) we know that Bach
competition cannot laat forever, and we
can "stay with it" while it does.
We started out to mention some price
on such goods as we have by this time
found out we have too many of, but must
refer you to our "local squibs" for the important
information. As a last word we
would say, come out in the forenoons if
you would avoid the crowds, for we are
having them every afternoon for the laat
week. Yours respectfully,
