He escaped ' I erith tbree others, in a fishing vessel to ! ■ France, and landed in Boston December, ' "1798. Ha retained his faculties in a ' ■sacked degree to tbe time of his death, aad took a lively interest in the progress of Irish affairs of the present day. It 1 I sate his desire to be permitted to live to I see the estaoliahment of a parliament at Dahlia, whioh, just before his death, he assarted would be consummated very t aaortly now, despite the indications to the contrary The observance of St. Patrick's day % stare brought out the intense national paatrlotiam of Loa Angeles Irishmen. It ;also brought to the front a young lawyer of this city who delivered an oration of ' aaiiinsl eloquence. On account of the similarity of names, tbe whole city was failibad by the press that our honored [ ax-Mayor, E. F. Spence, was to be the gutter of the day, when it was in fact Pf.- a. F. Spencer who had been snleeted. Before the oration had been delivered, tbe ex-Mayor naturally felt -sweaty about the mistake, for be didn't eraat to take the chances of being fathered with an oration that would f probably fall far short of bis own orator i leal merits. But since the address has been given to tbe public in the Herald, and its author received encomiums on feall bands, he looks upon the error with F 4hs utmost good nature. lie don't get pastd worth a oent wben one congratu | latss him on the effort. Sir Jobn Macdonald says the Govern ment's majority in the recent elections would have been much larger "were it not for tie large amount of Yankee hoodie distributed by tbe Liberals." Nonsense! Ths American colony in Canada needs all the boodle it possesses, aad no other Yankees cared a straw Which way the elections went. But i perhaps Sir John is crying "stop thief" * simply to cover up the use of money by his side, for it it charged that more pro fligate expenditures were never before I auade in Csmda. A Protect Against Funeral Ex travtt nance. The conventional period of the "lying ia state" having expired, then comes the funeral. So patent is the folly of extrav agant expenditure at funerals, and so plainly is it condemned by common sense that we need not consider that point at any length. But it is impossi siblo to pass it by so long as people per sist in making the occurrence of death an occasion for display. Io truth, these funeral pageants are inspired less by a respect for the dead than by a purile love of pomp on the part of the living. On what other ground can it be, ex plained? Funeral extravagance is no mere modern folly; on the contrary, it is hoar with antiquity, and is endowed with all the power and prestige of an immoral usage. Nevertheless, there is much encouragement for its assailants, in the continuous tire of protest evoked by the practioe, aud in such noble examples as that recently set by the family of the late Bishop of Ripon. The coffin of this eminent churchman was borne to tho hearse by the sons ami other near relatives; only relatives and close associates assembled at the honse of mourning; humble friends bore the coffin from the hearse to the church, and thence to the grave. The grave was simply adorned with flowers and ivy, and the whole ceremony wa» character ized by an extreme simplicity. Aside from the value of such an example, us a protest against the custom cf holding costly funerals, there is a beautiful les son taught by the use of flowers at the Bishop's grave. Here is another instance of fit and decorous funeral rites. The mother of a family having died, the father must needs initiate into the solemn mysteries cf death and the resurrection his 5-year old child. Wisely he resolved that, whatever else his teaching lacked, it should be full of Christian cheerfulness. His child's first acquaintance with death should have no association with gloom and terror, so that the outgoing of a life might seem as natural to her as the in coming. So, in the days intervening before tbe funeral, the household life and work went on as usual. No black raiment, no shutting out of the bright sunbeam, no unnecessary change in any particular, was permitted. And when the time came to permit the body, beau tiful in death, to its last resting place, the sombernesa of the grave was bright ened by flowers fresh plucked from the home garden, so that the place had no unwholesome terror for the little one looking into it for the first time with childish wonder. The lessons conveyed by these two ceremonies are just what modern society sorely needs to learn. In the chaste simplicity of the one and the sweet serenity of tbe other is conveyed an effective reproof of the senseless dis plays usually made at funerals. Such inspiring examples may, perhaps, still be few and far between, but the very fact that there are even now men with suffi cient moral courage to stem the tide of foolish custom gives us ground for hope that the day is not distant when enlight ened common souse and sincere grief shall rule, instead of imperious fashion of immemorial usage.—[The Forum. The enemies of Sir John Macdonald, I the Canadian Premier, assert that his administration has cost the Government I §75 a minute. Now tbat Sir John has I bean re-elected, he ought, in common | gratitude, to take the pledge and reform. Ex-Senator Jones of Florida proposes to be a candidate for re-election. He I aeyi he will lay before the Legislature f tbe true reason for his long absence t from the national capital, and adds | it will not only vindicate his course, bat create a national sensation in the eharaeter of charges tbat he will make, ami tha h'gh standing of the statesmen i whom he will involve.

Robert Purvis, one of the founders and many years the President of the Anti-Slavery Society, in a reminiscent mood yesterday said: "During slavery days Wendell Phillip* lectured one even ing of a day on which a number of Methodist ministers held a conference. The preachers were on the same train with Phillips. One of the ministers, a big blustering fellow, inquired in a loud voice if Wendell Phillips was on the train. " 'Yes, sir; there he is,' answered the conductor, pointing to the great Aboli tionist, who sat quietly in the rear of the car. "The inquiry naturally excited a great deal of interest, and everybody in the car turned around to take a look at tbe man then so much talked about. " 'You're Wendell Phillips, are you?' yelled the minister, half turning in his seat. '"Yes, sir; that is my name,' replied Phillips, with characteristic blandness of voice. "'Well, sir, I was just about writing you a letter ' " 'Indeed; I should no doubt have had great pleasure in reading it.' " 'No, you wouldn't! No.you wouldn't! I was going to givj you some sound ad vice. I want you to understand, sir, that there are no slaves up North here. You have no right to go about raising disturbances and delivering unpleasant Uoturet. Why don't you go down South and leoture?" "'Sir,' said Phillips, half rint'Dg iv bis seat, 'you are a minister of the gospel, are you not ?' " 'Yes, sir.' " 'It is your mission to save souls < from hell, ia it not?' i " 'Yea, sir.' i " 'Then why don't you go there?"

H. Sobeutze, who baa traveled in northwest Siberia. "There is seldom more than one room in these cabins, and usually tbe owner's cattle, if he has any, oocupy one end of the room in whioh he lives, being tied or prevented from tramping on the babies by a bar. The houses are commonly very comfortable, but are awfully dirty, and smell—there is no word to describe it. Often, until I got used to it, I would rather lay down in the snow outside, with the thermometer 50 degrees below zero, than sleep in one of these huts, But you've no idea what a man can stand when he has to." "Have they windows in their houses?" "Yes; ice windows. They use ice as we use glass. A clear piece is selected about rive or six inches thick, mortised in the window opening in blocks two feet aad sometimes as large as four feet square, and with water is mado solid. The water is as good as putty. When tbe window becomes dirty they scrape it off with a knife, and when it has been scraped thin they substitute a new pane." "Doesn't the window ever melt?" ''Bless you, no; it is freezing cold that far from the tire. If the room ever got warm enough to melt the ice the Yakut couldn't live in it, and would have to go outdoors to cool off. At night the tire is allowed to go out, as they have to econ omize in fuel. All they have is drift wood, gathered on the banks of the Lena river in tbo summer time." "How do they sleep? Do they un dress wben they go to bed?" "Always. They strip to their shirts, which arc made of a thick sort of Rus sian cloth, as heavy as our canvas. The men and women wear the same kind of garments, and never have more than ' one at a time. I took up a lot of thick flannel for them, enough to 'last the rest ' of their lifes, and it will be a great deal j more comfortable than the native stuff, although they don't like it at first. When they undress they get into bunks J built into the side of the house, some times a mac, his wife, and all his chil- J dren in the same bunk. They have . reindeer skins under and over them, and curtains of the same hanging before the ' bunks.'' "Do they ever bathe ?" \ "Never in their lives. They haven't ' any word for bathing in their language, and the impossibility of keeping clean is 1 one of the greatest hardships of Arctic life." \ General Sherman's idea of seacoaat de feases is a navy consisting of the most powerful warships and the biggest guns in the world. These can be moved from point to point, whioh is impossible with forts. "Besides," sayt the General, "England has chips that can run past the most formidable forts ever erected by the ingenuity of man." The British war office is looking to Canada for its future supply of cavalry and artillery horses, and sn order has been transmitted to purchase 300 forth with. The Canadian horses are re garded as stronger and better able to stand the fatigues of a campaign than those now bred in England. The citizens of Providence, R. 1., are already tired of the prohibition law, and business men representing property worth $40,000,000 have petitioned the General Assembly for its repeal. High license would have been far more satis factory. General Bonlanger, the bellicose French Minister, wben engaged in de bate drinks only sugared water. Bis marck drinks brandy and water. _ But Boulanger, on being recently questioned on bis taste, answered that one can keep a cooler head on sugar than on brandy. Wendell Phillips onoe said: "So long as woman is admitted to the tax list, the jail and the gallows, she ought not to be denied at the ballot box." Ex-Governor William Smith ("Extra Billy") of Virginia is lying very ill at his home in Warrenton. As he is in his 90th year his recovery is improbable. Edward Kuhl, of Omaha, provided in his will that when he died his body should be cremated aud Ihe ashes put into an urn and placed over the bar in a popular saloon. This is a queer way to keep Kuhl. THE FOLLIES OF MOURNING. "What do they eal?" "Reindeer meet, beef—they have cowe, queer looking animals about half as large as ours, with a hummock on their backs like a camel—fish, bread made of black rye flour, tea, and an imported food made of chopped beef rolled into balls about the size of a marble and covered with a dough. These they pound up ar,d make into soup. Then there is a wood that is very nutritious when it is ground up and boiled. Mixed with reindeer meat it makes a good soup. They often eat their fish raw. Of course, they freeze solid as soon as they are taken out of the water, and the native, particularly if he is on the road, cuts them off in shavings as thin as our chopped beef, and eats them raw. They are palatable, aud 1 have lived for days at a time on them, with a cup of coffee, made over an alcohol lamp, by way of variety, The greatest luxury they have is butter, and they will eat it by the pound as our people eat confectionery, A poor sort of butter ia made from the milk of a native cow, that looks aud tastes more like cheese, and they prize it above all other clashes of food. ' The amount of batter a native will eat when he can get it," continued Lieu tenant Scheutze, "is astonishing. A friend of mine in Siberia told me of a man who ate thirty six pounds in one day, and then didn't get all he wanted. They havo a way of pounding up a red berry aud mixing it with butter whioh gives it a beautiful pink tint and im proves the flavor. Their drink is the Russian vodka, almost pure alcohol, and they will trade their shirts for it. The liquor is scarce but expensive, so they are necessarily a temperate people."— [Cincinnati Sun. Miscellaneous Clippings. The French have devised a short way with fraudulent battermen. By the new law on the subject just passed, auy one intentionally selling any buttor substi tute, or any butter mixed with other substance, under the name of butter, is liable (1) to a term of imprisonment from six days to six months; (2) to a tine of from fifty to three thousand francs; (3) to have all his stock of the fraudulent substance confiscated; (4) to have the conviction published in the papers, and placarded iv the market of his own town, and posted ou his house and shop, nil at his own expense. Any man selling such article is presumed to do so intentionally, unless ho givc3 the name ol tho person h ■ bought them frooi] aud on a second eonvlciicn within twelve months, the maximum fine is to be inflicted. 'i' c ia?t survivor of oue of tuo great i bUiorical families of Europe was buried at Chens, near Geneva, four days before Christmas. The venerable Mathilde i Poniatowski, the widow of Count Szy. i I monoweki, has just jiassed her9oth year. . Her family gave to Poland its last king, < Btanistana Augustus, under whose reign t! v death-strugnle of the Polish nation i began, and its last hero, Prince Joseph I'ouiatowski, who fell as one of Napo leon's generals when bravely attempting to cover tho retreat of tho French at the battle of Ltipsig. The Czar Alexander, witij a generosity which did hi n credit, allowed his corpse to be buried iv the church at Craoow amongst tbe old kings and heroes of Poland. Count Szymuu owski, the husband of the deceased lady, took a prominent part iv the rising of the Poles in 1831, tiuoa whioh time she has lived a quiet and uneveutful life in the hospitable republic of Geneva. Tha Italian papers call attention to a curious illustration of the chango which baa taken place in tha attitude of the more eminent members of the Roman Papal Curia toward tho eminent members of the National party. When Cardinal Jacobini, who has served Leo Xlll so faithfully, was seiz.-d with his last pain- I ful illness, he was asked what physician be would prefer. He replied, to the as tonishment of bis more irreconcilable colleagues, "Dr. Guido Baccelli." Dr. Bacceili is not only a leading Liberal, but he ia at this moment the representa tive of the City of Rome iv the Italian Parliament, and w hat ia even more re markable, he was a short timo ago the Italian Minister of Education. fcjTbcchange which ia taking place in English agriculture is powerfully illus trated by tbe agricultural statistics of 1886. The wheat crop of last season was over sixteen million bushels short of that of 188.1, and barley decreased to tho extent of over seven million bushels. Ab regards wheat it is probablo that a cold spring had something to do with the falling off, but tho main cause must have been tha unprofitable nature of this branch of farming. The British farmer, indeed, is fast throwing himself into the culture of a root and grass crops, and the figures for tur nips, mangolds and hay are all io expels oj recent years. England is to have a Kreuznacb of its own, and we shall probably soon hear a great deal of Woodhall Spa in Lincoln shire, which is said to possess the strong last oromo- iodine mineral water in A POSER.

A .Short Sketch ot Ills Early Career. Charles Lux, the millionaire land-own er and cattle dealer, died at 4 yesterday morning, at his residence, on the north west corner of Jackson and (lough streets, in this city. Ho died of typhoid pneumonia, on the nineteenth day of his illness. His last hours were attend ed with little pain. Mr. Lnx had been sick all this winter, suffering from cold and asthma. He had not entirely recovered from the effects of a severe fall from a wagon on his private estate at Baden, San Metro county, more than a year ago, and, while attending personally to his out door business on one of his ranches in tho recent snowstorm, he contracted a had cold. He was a man of very large build and bad attained the age of 64 years, < Mr. Lux was born in Alsace. He em igrated to New York city in boyhood. There he worked for a retail butcher in Fulton Market fur some years as a delivery boy. He came to San Fran cisco in 1557 and opened a retail butcher shop at 931 Washington street. In this business he was very prosperous, and in 1862 he formed tho partnership which was destined to continue auspiciously through the many long years to the close of his life. This was with Henry Miller, under the firm name of Miller & Lux, ns cattle dealers and wholesale butchers. Shortly after this firm wss established it commenced the fair-sighted policy of investing iv public lands, or buying out early locators. It maintained this policy down to very recent dates, until now ite landed possessions cover an area of 700, --000 acres. These lio in the counties of San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Monterey, San Beuito, Merced, Stanis laus, Fresno, Tulare, Kern aad San Luis Obispo, in California] in the coun ties of Washoe and Humboldt, in Ne vada, and also iv Oregon, The cattle herds of the firm, scattered in many parts of this vast territory, number be tween 70,000 and 80,000 head. The firm has an aggregate annual tax of 850,-' 000, and the total value of its land, improvements and cattle is estimated to be (not a close estimate) §10,000,000. Over 700 miles of private telegraph lines connect their ranches, Mr. Lux was makiuuMis homo at Ba den, San Mateo county, when he en tered into business with Mr. Miller. He then tixed his residence at No. 45 South Park, this city, where he maintained it for fifteen years. He then returned to Baden and lived there some two years. Thereafter his home was on tho large and tine promises where lie died, as be fore stated. Tbe deceased leaves a wid ow, but never had any children. His immediate relatives oonsist of a brother at San Jose and a brother and sister at Hattcn, in AUucc. He mado his will a few years ago. The names of Mr. Lux and his part ner, Mr. Miller, will forever bo asso ciated in our legal aunals with what has thus far probably been the most import ant litigation iv the history of this State. This was the great water rights suit of Miller k Lux vs. Haggiu a. Carr, iv which our Supreme Court in recent elab orate decisions upheld the English doc trine of riparian riguts as established in California. Miller k Lux were the pre vailing parties.—[Bulletin, March 10. The London Public Opinion publishes some interesting statistics on a men dicity society which has existed at St. Petersburg ever since 1837, the object of the institution being to oombat and Ac . bg away with begging iv the Ru«j- s capital.

If a beggar cannot be placed in a situation, he is kept by the society in a home, in which men of position who have "coma down in life" are kept apart/ from the ordm.iry low-class beggar.
