A few months ego au article from the pen of Miv O'Brien, pre tending to portray life in tbe steer age of a steamer bound from Liv erpool to New York, was quite ex tensively copied, and furnished eubjects for illustrations to several of tbe New York flash papers. Miss O'Brien's story, if true, was one that showed an utter lack ol regard on the part of ateamship proprietor* for tbe comfort, health ar morals of their poorer patrons, wbo are obliged to travel in ibe steerage or stay at home. Wbile corporations may have no con "ecTenoes, tbey oertainly bave puree-strings, which in the oase ol Atlantic eteam navigation com panies, are kept in such a state ot tension by vigorous opposition, that they vibrate at the slightest touch of well-founded complaiut. Tbie fset alone wae enough to throw doubt upon tbe question whether Miss O'Brien had told a true and unadorned tale. For the purpose of solving this doubt, a reporter attached to one of tbe leading Eastern daily journals made a trip from Liverpool to New York In the capacity of a steerage paaaenger, faring tbe same as bit steerage mates, and giving no clue to bis identity or mission. Hie report is detailed In several col umns of bis paper, in which he concludes tbat tbe only bad usage of which be or bis companions bad -,to complain was incivility from tba officers and crsw of the steamer. Several years ego tbe wtiter of this present article, not from choice but from the lack of money enough to pay any otber kind ol passage, was a Bteerage passenger oa tbe steamer Edinburgh from Liverpool to New York, on his re turn from Europe to America. Be sides himself there were some seven hundred others in tbe steer age. Tbere was no good rea son why he should receive, aud lit did not receive, auy faro or treat ment different from tbe rest. He was told at the office of tbe com pany to provide himself witb whatever bedding he wished, a tin plate and tin pan to receive his food, a tin oup for his coffee and tea, knife and fork, and spoon and towels. He found oue of the nu merous stores where such "kits," as tbey are oalled, can be pur chased cheaply, and fitted blmsell out. He don't recollect now tbe amount they cost him, but is eatlafled they did not cost over five dollars. Of course, the bed was not of feather or hair, and the blanket did not surpass the ludlau Agency article in quality, but eacb one of tbe articles of tbe "kit" answered well Ls purpose for tbe trip. Ha found tbe steerage of the Edinburgh cleanly, and it wat kept so during tbe voyage, the dirtiest part of his surrounding* being the bodies and clothing of many of bia fellow passengers. One side of the steerage was occu pied exclusively by women, tbe otber side exclusively by men, a broad aisle between the two. In spite of protestations, entreaty •nd threats, the inexorable steer age steward male and female sep arated be, tbe bonds of matrimony •yen not availing to set aside tbe disqualify- ' |on of sex. Each side was divided into compartments containing about twenty berths. In tbe compartment which tbe writer occupied tbe only exception to tbe ruls of separating the sexes was made, that exception being in favor of an old lady about seventy years of age wbo seemed heart broken at tbe idea of being sep arated from her son. Tbe bill of fare consisted of salt meat, fresh meat about twice a week, coffee, tea, butter, molasses, rice, potatoes, bread, ship's bread (or "bard tack," as it is called), pea soap once or twice a week, and ■net pudding (tbe sailors' much loved "duff") on Sundays. Tbese ertlolee were all of good quality and were dealt out witb tio nig gardly hand by the steward, who passed around witb a large pot or pan and spoon, snd deposited in yeur tin pan the food and poured in your tlneup tbe drink. Tbe cook ing was fair, better than tbat of many private families, and if "good dlgeetion waited upon appetite," tbeie meale were really enjoyable. Good order waa preserved on board ablp, and more apparently well fonnded scandal baa reached tbe ear of tbe writer traveling in otber •teamen with a few stylish cabin passengers tban were circulated on board the Edingburgb. In oooolualoD, while, aa a matter efjtotaa.« »• writsrslMwMs,^ make a similar voyage, be would' travel in tbe cabin, he believes that he got a great deal for his I money when be paid twenty uui-. lars for a passage from Liverpool to New York. While we gaze at tbe sta tistics of tbe growth of the United States iv population we may do well to observe also tbat our northern neighbor is making strides In tbe same direction. Can ada's population for 1881 is approx imately estimated, from tbe first returns of tbe late census, at 4,850, --933. Tbis, to be sure, Is uot a tentb part as great as that of tbe United States, but lt shows a growth of 866,172 In the last ten years, which is a very creditable rate of inorease, and one that is likely not to fall off in the immediate future.

Tlie Mini Iti v«sf l«Ettll«»i, San Francisco, August 10.—In tbe Mint Investigation to-day, Di rector Burchard was on tbe stand. He had been generally satisfied with tbe management of tbe San Fraucisco Mint; a portion of the large wastage of 1879 was due to the use of copper oauKters In an ueaiiug insteadof theopeu furnace, a practice which bas been aban doned; furlher loss was o.ueed by the working of low grade bullion; silver bullion with a copper base has been received at all the United States Branch Mints. A state ment from tbe records of tbe Mint showed tbat of the condemned in gots for tbe fiscal year 1879-80, 24J per cent, were Northern Belle million. The witness said that tbe iustructious to Branch Mints, con curred in by Secretary Sherman, were that no charges be imposed on bullion that does Dot require re fining, even when such bullion is below standard; charges sbould be imposed when the metal contains other properties that would make lt brittle.

K. —Dr. Bliss reports, at 4:30 T. M. that, notwithstanding the high pulse shown by tbe noon bulletin, tbe President had a very favora ble day and tbat the rapidity of pulse was an Indication of weak ness resulting from tbe operation and from tbe dimluished quantity of food given him yesterday and Monday. But this con dition will not, it is thought, laet longer than to-morrow. Already his pulse has fallen Bix beats since tbe noon bulletin and his temperature is only a little above normal. The patient bas taken more nourishment to-day than at any time heretofore slnoe Sunday, and his condition is, in tbe opinion of all tbe surgeons, much better (ban 24 bours ago.

Chicago, August 10th.— Twen ty-five Chinese studeuts on their way from Hartford home arrived to-day. Tbey say they bave com pleted the studies for which they were sent. One reason they give for being summoned home is tbat the government's military and naval academies are closed to tbem. As Germany allows them to enter ber institutions, China will probably send her students tbitber hereafter and to Euglaud. Tbey Btate that none of tbeir par ty bave changed tbeir faith in America. They spoke English well and were a creditable looking set of men. Tue Ul.ci.rd.nt vuruin k.im,,.. ■ leans. Lynchbcro, Va , August 10th.
