Francis Murphy, the "Gospel temjir ance" reformer, lias taken the Prohibi tion party to tak very severely for in terfering with his work at Younstow n, Ohio. He utterly condemned drawing the temjM'rance movement into politics, and declared that despite the strict pro hibition law of Maine for so many years, a great deal of whisky is drunk there, and that it was as easy to get a diink in Iowa or Kansas as it was in any non prohibition State. Temperance was a personal matter, and had nothing to do with politics. "Prohibition," he said, "never accomplished anything:. It never made a man pober or a home happy. I'y its fruits fchall ye know it. Pay no at tention to the man who says : 'Elect me and I'll pass a law, and if yon don't obey it I'll put you in jail.' Make your own prohibitory law. Extend your fellow ship to your neighbor and help him. Try love, not law. Laws can't make a man sober. Try moral suasion, not force. When a ' 'man who has taken the pledge falls, help him up and stand by him; suck to him. Nothing can make man yafe from drink except Jod and his own will'. Why, up in Sing Sing Prison, with in the walls of a penitentiary, the strong hold of the law, a convict came out the other day who had found a way of mak ing whisky out of the peelings of iota toes and turnips and apples and the re fuse of the table, and he had actually made thousands of dollars peddling whisky under the very nose of the law. Prohibition don't prevent it." This has the ring of the sound metal. It is the opinion of a man who tinder stands what he is talking about, and who is also in earnest. Temperance re form ia Francis Murphy's life work, and he is not enamored of political temperance movements. They simply bring dis credit upon the good work, which should be one of moral suasion and social influ ence. Should the Prohibitionists of the United States iersit in a distinct or ganization, or attempt to dictate to either of the great political parties, they will antagonize many friends of temper, ance and postpone the great reform now in progress in America. REVIEW. SalnumW A Xovel. Saxon & Co., of London and New York, have recently published an Eng lish translation of Gustave Flaubert's famous historical novel, "Salaumbo." The original, written over twenty years ago, earned for its traveled and erudite author the title of the founder of the modern school of French realistic and naturalistic literature, a style which bolder and less scrupulous hands, play ing upon the chords of the inherent im moral life of man, have broadened and debased into passionate and sensualist ic license. It is creditable to M. French Sheldon, the translator, that he has succeeded in . reproducing, in a hitherto considered untranslatable work, to a very great ex tent the true spirit of the original, its studied sentences and almost its lyric rythm and oriental coloring. n his part it has evidently been a conscien tious effort. To the minds of the majority of Eng- 11SI1 rcauri rr, ..ii.iu;m'o win appear coarsely brutal in its realistic de scriptions of bloody warfare, barbaric cruelty, demoniacal rapine, ravage and debauchery, with the more n lined and far more interesting works of Kingsley"? "Hypatia" and Eulwcr's "Lat Days of Pompeii." To the aivhaologist and the poet, to the playwright and the artist, it will continue to be, as it has been ia the past, a perfect treasure house of ripened student lore and inspiring sug gestions. It is a great poem, in w hich morality has but a secondary consideration , and it is one written by a master hand. It deals with the era when Canhage was struggling for existence against the attacks of the barbarians and mercenaries, and the 1 jrcat Ilannikd was 1ut ;i l-oy. His father, Haini!(ir IJarca, in the leading fiuro, and SaIaurnlo, Hamilrar's daughter the heroine, whilt Mathu, the leader of the harharian ho.-t, is the tragedy hero. To those who have not forgotten the history of this very extit inir period of the world's ae, and can read with interest the details of the bloody and cruel sacrificial rites of Moloch, Eaal and the ancient cults, .and are not easily nauseated with Ucnp tions of slaughter and lust, the story will be found .sujerb in its word painting and fascinating in its diab'ery. It is not a book, however, which should be put into the hands of younjr eoile. SESSIONAL STATISTICS. Honk fioneby Hie J.ejslatj e Assem bly, Session of 1S0. The Eegi.-lative Assembly of 18-m;, which was brought to a close on Satur day, stands as the longest on record.

The number of columns of minion tyje printed in this paper of the proceedings was 0S5. As a column measures 21 inches, this would give 225 yards of printed matter, which, if laid out, would reach from this office to very near the Government building. The total number of "ems'' printed was 2,loS,070, which would make nearly five million letters. So j mi s snooting- Case.

The evidence was quite lengthy, and the case was not given to the jury until 7:45 o'clock in the evening. At 9 :20 Mr. Justice Preston called the jury in and asked them if they had agreed upon a verdict, which, was answered in the negative. They were sent out again, but returned - at 10 o'clock, when Mr. Waterhouse, the foreman, said they were unable to agree to a verdict. His Honor discharged them.
