Two trains of l'ullmaii hotel and palace cars are to be run each way daily. Canada has adopted the British prac tice of placing contested elections for legislative bodies in the hands of the courts ami making the direct or indirect bribery of voters a disqualification. In the last election of the Province of On tario, petitions for unseating mem bers out of S7 were presented, and IS members were unseated by the courts. The offenses were not generally of a llagrant character, consisting mainly of j petty bribery. In Quebec Province, es pecially in the City of .Montreal, some of the cases have called for pretty sharp language from the bench, and the whole effect of the law is very tonic to the av erage political conscience. The oldest nation in the world does honor to the youngest. The land of the Pharaohs shows its respect for our peo ple by appropriating 'i5..0U0 to pay the expenses of its representatives at the Centennial Exposition next year. All the arts, products and industries of Egypt will be represented, as well a many things pertaining to her ancient historv. A movement has been set on foot among the Pennsylvania Grangers, to provide a Grange Encampment at the Centennial Exhibition, where the breth ren from all parts of tiie country can obtain suitable food and shelter without the intervention of that extortionate "middleman,'1 the hotel-keeper. The plan is substantially as follows: A lot of sixty or seventy acres on one of the great lines of railway near the city will be procured, and substantial board tents will be erected, capable of accommo dating as many as may come. A rail road station will be located on the ground, and trains be run at short in tervals directly to the. Centennial Ex position, and passengers conveyed to and fro at low rates of fare. Boarding tents, will be erected for those who do not bring their own provisions, and the charge is not to exceed $l.o0 per day. The camp will be thoroughly lighted at night, will be provided with good water, efficiently policed, and every effort made to secure the comfort of visitors. In the center of the grounds, will be located a large building, a part of which will be used as a Grange Hall and reception room. The offices of the Association will also be located in the building, and a largo lire-proof safe will be placed therein, in which Patrons can deposit money and other valuables. The capacity of the Encampment will be equal to lodging and boarding from 5,000 to 7,000 visitors daily, and the immense saving it will effect in ex penses, it is surmised, will induce thou sands of farmers in till parts of the country to make a visit to the Centennial Exposition. The Committee on Railroad Trans portation of the Cheap Transportation Association of New York City have reported in favor of the building, on a strictly cash basis, of a double track railroad to the West, to be used exclusively for freight traffic The mixture of freight and passenger business, they say, militates against the former, because passenger trains hav ing the right of way, freight trains must lay by much of their time. On the road proposed ten miles an hour could be made, while on the roads now running live miles an hour is a good average for freight trains. The cost of the road, says the report, would be about STo.out ,((, a sum which the real estate and commercial interests of New York might contribute. Indeed, they he more than that sum every year in re duced rents for real estate and current exorbitant price- for transportation The committee express the opinion that the whole carrying trade of that city ha- fallen into the hands of a few men who have no interest in the develop ment of commerce, and who, feeling secure in their control of the highways, charge what tolls they please, the result beinir that business in New York is 1111 dulv depressed, while Baltimore and I'hilndelphia, which are favored with transportation lines run especially in their interest, are proportionately bene fited thereby. Ac'TiNCr-GovEUNOK Autoink of Louis iana, on the loth, issued a proclamation, ordering all illegal and disorderly bodies of men in East Feliciana Parish to disperse, and calling upon all law abiding citizens to assist in bringing malefactor to justice. The killing by a mob of John Gair ami the woman " Babe" Matthews (both colored), the expulsion from the parish of a number of legally elected officials, the compul sory adjournment of the Court and the killing of the Sheriff are cited among the llagrant acts of wrongdoing which have been committed in said parish, and which the Governor feels called upon to reprimand. IIenkt M. Stanley, commander of the exploring expedition to Central Af rica lilted out by the New York Herald and the London Tclcyraph, has been heard from. The expedition had reach ed Lake Yictoria Nyan.a after a journey of seven hundred and twenty miles, oc cupying one hundred and three days. The path of the expedition led it over a series of sterile plains with occasional stretches of hilly districts, the whole country being filled with hostile tribes, in a conflict with one of which twenty one members of the expedition were killed. Great sufferings were experienced from extremes of weather, disease, exposure, fatigue and famine. Out of three hundred men composing the expedition at the start but one hundred and ninety men reach ed the lake. Among those dying from fever were two English members of the expedition, Messrs. Pocock and Barker. Mr. Stanley details his explorations on Lake Yictoria Nyan.a in the sectional steamer Lady Alice. It abounds in hip popotami, which arc very tame, and itt. shores are in places peopled by numer ous savage tribes that live in a state of nudity, among whom the appearand! of the steamer with its load of explorers excited great curiosity and alarm. Pi:oi Jannev, chief of the Govern ment geological expedition to the Black Hills, ami assistants returned to Chey enne on the Kith. They spent five months in making a thorough examina tion of the country, which the' mapped from Belle Fourche to the South Fork of the Cheyenne Kiver. According to a dispatch from Cheyenne, Prof. Jaimey reports that the gold field extends from Harney's Peak north 10 miles, probably one-half of which territory contains enough of the precious metal to yield from .?." to $o per day to the. miner, and on some of the streams a larger amount. The country is said to be well adapted to agriculture and stock-raising, with plenty of water and timber abundant. A dieeicclty has originated between Yenezucla and Holland in regard to a war indemnity which the former claim ed. Holland declined to pay it until a Dutch vessel, which had been seized by Yenezuela, had been re.-tored, and the latter had thrown open her ports to Dutch commerce. The South Ameri can power agreed to the former propo sition and restored the vessel, but would not arec to the latter, and the two countries are how in a state of open rupture, the respective, ministers having been recalled. United States Makshae Lake, of Mississippi, has sent the following tele gram to ex-Senator Pease at Washing ton. It is dated at Jackson, Oct. 1-1 : Military operations have been suspended by Governor Ames, based upon mo.-t ample and minute assurances of leading citizens of the State that there shall be peace and a fair and free election. They would not under take to answer for lawlessness, but rruaran tee to aid the civil oilieers in the execution of the laws. The Governor expresses him self wholly satisfied wit lithe assurances -riven, and believes that they are nwde in jrood faith and will be carried out to the letter. An improved feeling prevails, especially among the whites, and a general desire for peace prevails among all ela-ses. Good citi zens are greatly encouraged. In an interview subsequently held be tween the President and ex-Senator Pease, the former expressed himself as much gratified that the two parties in the State had effected an amicable ad- iustment. bv which a fair election would be held and peace maintained, and a- suved the ex-enator that, although he ! had been urged to remove certain Fed eral oilieers in the State, no removals there should be made for mere partisan i imr about the -treet- with her child .r m-v-purposes.

A good story is told at the expense of a gentleman who lives in St. Louis, and who cherishes that exalted view of the importance of the city which is some what characteristic of his fellow towns men. St. Louis was recently visited by Lord Houghton, an English nobleman, and among those who called to pay their respects to the titled stranger was this gentleman who felt it incumbent upon him to make a set speech, in the course of which he informed the visitor that St. Louis " is in reality one of God's own cities a city which, in His wisdom. He had destined to become great." Upon hearing this outburst of enthusiasm, Lord Houghton quietly remarked that he thought some pious per.-on had once said how wonderful it was that Provi dence had arranged that the largest rivers always fiow past the largest cities; whereupon the gentleman, sublimely uncon.-cious of the point of the observa tion, cheerfully made the admission that Providence had willed it that a large river should fiow by our city, and it has helped us considerably." It will be observed that the gentleman, though frank in making this admission, was very guarded in the selection of his words. The women of the Karen tribes in Chinese Burmah wear rings of thick brass wire bent round the wrist and elbow, and again round the knee and ankle, confining them so in every mo tion that they cannot possibly squat I down on the rrounu m me usual orien tal fashion, or kneel to pray as the men do, while in walking their feet make two separate tracks a foot or so apart.
