There were many "fri ndlmly" Bruinese
at .:anugtoIl at thlis time, deserters from
D_.all::h. :hrew d fellows who hadi foreseen
sa:et y in British :seenidancy, and being
mostly ii.herimeni , had offered themselves
for "Iigilee" nuskets for the nonce, with I
a sh::rl rp ey. to protitable nets thereafter.
I t.leet, not a few o(f thetse c:alcIlatintl
r11it,. I;iol taken to their old trade at
reatdyi and busily plying their poles :and
hooks fronm crazy canoes at the mon1.th u. f
1i i: dedine creek. It was not lon, before
some i' ( at ma, 'nailed bv old ur.S..oo, the
i :, n r, :n atl;igsi(e with, as he said,
tis fo' K: .i etm shib. ", his mistrtss. i
},,> these .casina he (:onv ersed with tihem
in Bru mese , and v,.t11 ever watched nar
rowly' the :astonished tnd anxious faces of
the flihernmen must hiave observed that
I neither the freshness ..or the price of their
finny prizes formed any part of the dis
CIt SSiOil.
It was dark nig4it-no moon and a
cloudy sky; all hInds had gone below
and "turned in" some hours since. Tlhe
officer of the deck, night-glass in hand,
paced the "bridge" or leaned over the rail Ilic
and watched the lights ashore; while the
quartermaster patroled at the gangways. L
But these were not alone on deck; on the phil
bullring of the alter-gun the pale and tear- ore
less widow sat, still as a shadow, and peer- tlen
ed through the darkness shoreward to rews
where the Eighteenth's lights gleamed a ga
from the Great Dagon. Such was her seri
nightly wont, and officers and men had be- lati
collie so accustomed to it that she some- and
times sat tlh're till after midnight, uniiheed- am
('(1 and for,'ott'n. it
The yotu.y c!e'.er still chased with his vil
eyes the Ir(eti°es lightsl, and drleaed of
dreams the while of hoiice and of a sweet- Wit
heart; the gruff old quartermaster paced wh
up and down and thought of prize money wo
and the "old woman." Neither had (ye ord
or thought for the poor lady-they were the
so used to her lonesome ways, d'ye see- the
else they might have found something un- for
usual in the anxiety with which she watch- etc
ed a singular object in the dater astern- the
only an empty canoe drifting toward the pal
ship! Not drifting either; for now, that I net
point them out to you, you can see two na'
black heads, with long hair twisted in a er
barbaric knot behind, peering warily above lot
the water in front of the boat, which ali
seems to follow them. ie
The love-loren youngster, or the gruff old h :
quartermaster on prize-rnle ec intent, ditl
look toward the bull-ring i:a itite later :int
s saw-nothing; the lady was gone. Wtiitil
er? to her cabin? No; she cou(li.i at ':.'v

Many worthy Americans who have been
for a season in Paris, and who may be
blamelessly free from pride in all other
particulars, are exceedingly sensitive to t'
any hint at imperfection in their mastery a
of the French tongue. One of these gen- it
tlemen was recently introduced at a great a
Santhering in Washington to a distinguish- a
ed foreign diplomat, and immediately as- ti
sailed liin with a flood of what he consid- n
ered tc, be the most exquisite French of a
l'aris. Taking breath for a moment, he ii
aplgiz.ed Lwith an air of bland s, lf-con- a
ceit for hi- imperfect command of the a
Fr':ech toiigue , but he was a little taken
aback when the diplomat, with what was r
I an'ailt to be a: comilp)limtIentary smile, re- li
plied, "Not all. not at all I can under- j
sta:nd you (juit(e eil." AIother of our t
Galo-inaiac. was scarey! lss fortuatlle
in inqluiring of (in:- f the Irench legat:ir I
with whom he was conversing, "Hlow
much would I have to say before you ,
knew by my pronunciation that I was not
a Frenchman ?" "One word," was the
prompt and decisive reply. t
His Hatred of Americans and Jews. ty
u Th
Lucy Hoofer's Paris letter to Philadel- is t
phia Telegfaph says: Ilately had the pleas- jr
ure of conversing with an American gen- dis
tleman who for some years past has been we
res;ding in Germany, and who has taken wo
a great and patriotic interest in the recent pei
series of events that have rendered the re
lations between the Imperial government
and that of the United States anything but hn
amic:.ble. He tells me that the American pa
Minister to Berlin, for some time to come, go
will have a decidedly uncomfortable time
of it. Bismarck hates the United States st
with the vehement hatred of a despot for ou
i whatever stands in the way of the perfect us
working out of his will and pleasure. By in
order of the police all display of posters in he
the taverns and hotels, announcing fir
- the date of sailing of the emigrant ships inf
- for America, with the prices of passage,
- etc.. has been strictly forbidden. Since A
- the L.asker incident our officials in various
lparts of Germany find themselves shun- pt
1 ned by all their old friends amongst the
Snatives, and especially by the army offic- B
a ers. Our Ministers, too, area good deal tb
e looked down upon by the haughty imperi
r alists on account of the very simple man- w
ner in which they are compelled to live by st
reason of their colmp:r:atively small salary, f

Cheap Literature.
"'Gath" moralizes on the cheap liJ) ra
ture bl in- ss: A pbi)st(her tai'led in I'hil
adel)hitia for a iot $300,000 and a'crihctl
it to the dillice.iyv of se.ling bound b ,k
against trash reulrints and the absenc' o f
any originl and striking literature during
the past few years. This last is almost a
new idea, but it is a part of the transform
ation that has long been going on of mak
ing the central idea of literature not tihe
author but the printer. Sir Walter S'.ntt
alter long and careful preparation h.eg,~'
to produce his great books, and in order to
receive his due proportion of the returnt
Iie had to enter a house a: a lartii:'. andi
when the house failed without :~ly brain
this one man's brain had to carry the debt
:Ild he broke down, under it. No man in
lhe 1i'nited States can affolrd to be an :ii
thor uilless he is incapablc of fllowilu
any other busiiesvs, or is contentl to bia
loor, for "art, or is indeplendlently rich.
Yet it would be nmch better for this toutn
try if au ituch money was spent in en
couraging authorship as is spent on law- har
yers, who exist to the extent of about thir- Iv ii
ty in every country county of America. T
The competition in the law to get practice rose
is the cause of so much sharp practice and acce
jury-fixing, and incidentally of mobs and Tet
disorder and disgust with justice. When riet
we set up the dollar as the only thing ,1
worth living for, we must pay some of the sia:
penalties for it.

eA Night Encounter with Pathers. da
s gil
I- Pall Mall Gazette, March 28. fol
e We have received the following from M. cal
Bombounel, the renowned panther slayer, "
di the 15th inst., Bouria, Algeria: de
i` "After the departure of some guests, sil
w- who had killed some panthers during their an
Y stay, I found myself alone, and very much OU
J' fatigued, when an Arab came to me from th
1e the mountains near-this was on the 3d- ht
rn begging me to go and look after a lion that
'- had just devoured one of his cows. As the Ot
lemoon was not sufficiently a:dvanced I se
ig waited a few days, during which two oth- t
ll er animals placed there expressly by the at
se Arabs had been killed also. (You must m
le bear in mind that in this case one animal li
's is sacrificed to save the entire herd). On ai
- the Pith day between 4 and 5 o'clock in the
a- iafternoon, I settled myself in my hiding *
*- place, or affut, amlid the brushwood. The t(
•d rain pctured down in torrents. I was soon
r. wet t!li,ugh, and also very cold. At 10 e
it o'leh(ck tthe rain ceased, I heard the bor- "
ig rico I hid put lup a a bate suddenly roll tl
'- over, and a noise of something being b
ct dragged. It was a panther that was try- tl
he ing to carry it off into the thicket. I0
of could see nothing. The little open space r,
he in my court of brushwood through which U
,id my gun pa.sed was stopped up by the tl
P- weight of the rain bearing down the i
'it branches. I very gently made an opening,
'rwhichl caused the panthcr to lift up his o

Two.Women Hanged.
Liverpool Mercury.
Yesterday witnessed the grimi closing
scene of one of the most atrocious of mod
ern tragedies. Catherine Flannigan 'and
Margaret lhiggins were hanged at Kirk
dale jail for the murder of Thomas Hig
gins. Though only convicted in one of the
four cases gt up by the t rosecution, there
cannot be th i sal:lest doubt that these two
women were instrumental in causing the
death of three other persons, and very pos
sibly of many others besides. Husband
' and child and friend were sacrificed with
h out pity and without compunction by
these terrible sisters. They-. appeared to
_ have died as they lived-callous. It has
at been repeatedly rumored that one or the
oe other had confessed to the justice of the
I sentence, but the Roman Catholic chaplain
states that though Higgins was disposed
at the last moment to make a formal state
ment, Flannigan-always the more reso
al lute spirit of the two-refused to divulge
)n anything.

their statements. Nevertheless, a review
