eign affairs to-day made public the
letter addressed to the former by the
British minister, which was submitted
to the committee last Thursday. It
is as follows: British Legation, Jan.
14, 1884. Dear Mr. Hewitt: In re
ply to your note of yesterday, asking
.me whether in the course of a social
'visit you were kind enough to pay me
some days ago, you said, or did any
thing which could be construed as
an "apology" for your action in the
moving resolution in the O'Donnell
case. I nave only to say: I did not re
gard what you said to-me in the light
of an apology for the resolution, but
.as an explanation under peculiar
circumstances which prompted it on
jour part in the interest of friendly
-relations which exist between the
countries. This impression was
moreover strengthened by your
allusion to moderate language in your
opinion which you gave as a reason
why you thought the request for the
postponement of the execution of
the sentence should be granted,
and . by your sayinj that
other resolutions less considerate in
.form had been proposed to you, and
:as you were informed, would have
.been offered, if you had not framed
one so satisfactory to both Bides of the
bouse as not to meet with a single ob
iflction which usuld have defeated it.
1 may add, I could not presume there
as any evidence from what you said I
of any want or sincerity on your pari,
Vrwiiaklng the resolution in question.
Believe me to be yours very truly,

Arrival of King Carnival in Gal
veston. Galveston, Feb. 25. The clear,
bright sky and balmy air favored the
commencement of the Mardi Gras fes--.tivities.
At noon the king of carni
val landed at the Central wharf from
the United States cutter, McLane. As
the vessel approached the dock
salvo3 from the guns on board were
re-echoed by salutes from the battery
of the Galveston artillery company
ashore, and the booming ot cannon
-was swelled by the blowing of whis
tled, ringing of be'is and shouts of
the people. Carriages containing the
king and his party of twelve
gaily apparelled attendants . were
escorted through the crowded
streets by the Washington guards, St.
Mary's cadets and a detachment of
Galveston artillery to the Tremont

In your yesterday a issue, under the

tlw ordinance amendatory of article
174. (1). of the city ordinances of the
city of Austin, "regulating -st riding
and driving," you say:
"It provides that driving on Con
gress avenue and Pecan street shall
not be at a gait faster than ten miles
an hour, and on other streets at a gait
faster than twenty miles an hour."
In the nrst place permit me to say.
that the ordinance in question contem
plates no such thing, and anyone with
the sense ot an oyster even a news
paper reporter could instantly detect
the infinite absurdity and inexpedi
ency of such a provision in our city's
rule, besid s, there is not a horse in
the city that can trot twenty miles in
The proposed amendment to the
ordinance referred to does not permit
riding or driving on the avenue or
Pecan street faster than a "slow trot
or pace," or on any other road, street,
or other public place, faster than an
ordinary gait: provided, that it
does not prohibit riding or driving on
San Bernard street, for pleasure, at a
gait faster than twenty miles an hour,
and provides further, that an ordin-
iry gait is denned to mean, not raster
than ten miles an hour.
Your reporter evidently conceived
that the originators of this ordinance
contemplated teacmg m the town
and making a race track of it. This,
however, is a grave error, as the sole
object ot the amendment is to provide
a public drive, confined to a single
street, in the suburbs of the city,
where those who desire to indulge
their tastes in this direction, can do
so, without conflicting witn tne exist
ing laws, restricting the speed to a
snail s pace, or witnouc rear 01 being

THE JEANNETTE EXPEDITION.
Further Inyestigationa of Her Loss
St. Paul. Feb. 23. The Pioneer
Press prints this morning a six col
umn interview of Dr. Collins of Mm
neapolis. Dr. Collins is a brother of
Jerome Collins, who lost his life upon
the Jeannette expedition. Dr. Col
lins has in his possession note's, books
and papers, found upon the person of
JCIUUIO VUiXliO, dull ."v.- .
bases bis statement to be
presented to congress asking fur.
ther and more thorough investigations
of the circumstances attendant on the
loss of the Jeannette. The point of
Dr. Collins is that the jealousy of the
nav.il rfiiprs and civilians caused a
cont.uual llht and rendered it impos
sible that the objects or tne expedition
could ' be (successfully attained and
finally resulted in the loss of the vest
sel, and his brother's and others lives.
He refers to the hitherto
unpublished contents of Jerome's
note books. These show that DeLong
was jealous of Collins and insulted
him upon all occasions, made him
lodge and take quarters in the fore
castle and perform the duties of a
common sailor, instead of allowing
him to pursue scientific researches, for
which he had been attached to the ex
pedition; that he took away from
Jerome Collins all his instruments,

Long was found on the body of Collins,
recites all these wrongs, and tells of
insults which DeLong subjected him
to. In the letter Collins gives DeLong,
in a very decided manner, to under
stand that although he (Collins) was
in his (DeLong's) power then, that
there was a future when DeLong
would be called to account for his
treatment of him and his disregard of

building by our penny wise and pound
foolish commissioners, the first floor
of which was used for the court
room. The upper story was th O id

ing it had either been well started or
had been burning some timo. The
origin of the fire was olesiriy the work
of an incendiary, the purpose beioir
so destroy the indictments in the dis-
trist clerk s t-ffiM. Mr. H. P. Conner,
who was among the first at the fire,
says the window to the clerk's oflice
was up and the scent of kerosene oil
was very perceptible. All of the in
dictments where arrests had been
made were burned, but those where
no arrests had been made were pre
served in a small safe the clerk had.
The door of this safe had to be drilled
open this morning, and now there is
no where to keep the indictments left,
as no one is willing to endanger their
property by keeping them. Alr.lienry
Ford, county clerk, took some of the
records of his offire to the Coggiu
bank for safe keeping, as it is
fenrtd his office will be the

district court records, the county li

daring efforts of his deputy, Mr. Nat
Perry. The sheriff says he had not

Messrs.- Goodwin & Goodwin and

to stop the spread of the fire. They

Some may think it proper to speak
of the cynics of our day only as one
speaks of snakes in Ireland, because
there are no snakes in Ireland. True,
ij is many a centujry .twenty or more,
since Antisthenef, Diogenes, Crate?;
and tte rest the degenerate offspring
of the Socratic spirit and method
lived as they listed, questioned dogge i
ly, dogmatized snappishly, despised
authorities, sneered and scoffed t
their hearts' content at such ideas and
ideals of life as other people reyer
enced or indulged.- lived "in a' tub"
if they liked, had nothing more to ask
of an Alexander the Great than that
he would get out of their sunlight,
exerted a curious fascination over
many minds, then died, very much as
other men do, and "joined tje choir

ward iorni 01 me; 11 is ratner a pe
culiar mental attitude, a mood, an in
tellectual temper, a style of thought,
a tone of sKtiSient. The habit of
questioning, with an understrain of
suspicion anj distrust, is carried t:
excess. The faculty of contempt is
nTPnrnrkwI. Its mood ia not so bad
as to be exactly pessimifetic, although
it makes no doubt that the majority
are bad and mostly fools, in making
o much account as they do of certain
ideas and objects of puruit,
The old philosophical term cynic
earns from th Greek word kunnikos
dog-like or doftSish. Whether that
word suited the thing is not now in
question. For the old-time brood of
cynics, "philosophers" they call them
selves, one might frame a very plausi
hie apology. Looking around them
they could not but see the hollowness
of earthly pleasures. Pleasure was a
phantom; the mad chase after it was
full of mockery, chagrin and misery
Grasped at. it is gene; forever eluding
and delusive. The transientness of
the outward objects of pursuit, the
impossibility of building on such
foundations, the inevitable, the fore
doomed vanity of it all, made those
old-time cynics that is, the best of
them in their better moods turn
away in a kind of surprised horror at
allowing their lives to be duped and
trifled with in that way. In the craze
for riches, in the craze for pleasure, in
the aesthetic craze, there was nothing
tor the enduring soul of man to stand
on. lie s a fool who tries it, they de
clared. Since everything else is shift
ing, transient, delusive, let a man cen
tre himselt on hunselt: despise the
fickle supports, be independent of the
externals of life; stand up and defy
the world. That was their idea of
virtue, of manhood. As to any relig
ious Ideal of man's life, in its moral
relations to his Maker, those old cyn
ics made no account of that; nobody
in their day. did. And so presently
the cynic philosophy degenerated into
stark doggishness of life, destitute of
either inspiration or aspiration, a kind
of universal snappish growl a sorry
dog baying at both earth and sky in a
nut, curiously enough, the modern
cynic is like his ancient prototype,
with, however, a difference that ex
actly revers s the objects of disparage-
nirnt and contempt.
it the old cynicism bade one turn
his back on the world and betake him
self to the cattle of his own inner
self, and there busy himself shooting
out through the bastioned rort-holes
of his own self-independence his ar
rows of contempt ou all besides, the
new cynicism seems more disposed to
despise these notions about the soul
and all that, and instead to look for
the Chief good in lite as consisting in
the sheer "adjustment to environ
ment." To this view of life the inde
pendence of the individual person
ality is .the phantom. The soul is
nothing but the temporary, the mo
mentary inciaentoi an lnnmteiy nuge,
blind, groping evolution. It is nature
here, nature there, nature everywhere,
and nothing besides; and the total
movement of it is the best typified in
that monster Virgil depicts:
Polyphemus, huge and stout,
With but one eve. asd that put oat.
We are in the midst of an infinite
movement, but, so far as the modern
cynic knows, there is nobody at the
helm to guide it. The universe is a
mill that keeps agrinding, grinding
fine all, great and small, that chance
and all things do somehow so chance
to fall into its hopper. Great Pan
is dead; the Gods of Greece have fled;
the Divine has disappeared. It is now
the ideas of a personal independence.
it is the religious ideals, that are to be
esteemed, as empty phantoms! God
is gone. The soul's immortality is
gone. The supports, inspirations, the
solacements of religion, have now be

star." The star of hope is "dipped in
eternal night." From morality the
bottom is fallen out.
To be sure, this appalling convic
tion of the modern agnostic cynic
who has suddenly coie to know so
much this philosophical result is not
reached, at least by the finer minds
among this class, like the late Pro
fessor Clifford, without a touch of the
deepest pathos. To be in a world
without a God raeans, for souls not
steeped in sensual grossness, to be all
adrift in the dark. There is no possi
bility of relief. The soul of manhood
is left grasping in a vacuum. Cynic
ism may laugh, jeer, or weep over the
spectacle; it na", it can have, no word
of cheer. .George Eliot may sing
never so plaintively of her "choir in
visible, when immortality nas been
denied, and God has been repudiated
as non-existent: M, Comte and Mr.
Frederic Harrison may try their best
t3 fashion an artificial worship of
humanity" and seek never so earn
estly to breathe into the essential cyn
icism of their positivism a tenderer
spirit of love and hope. Neverthe
less, at the bottom of it is the old de
spair, which with all coarser natures,
especially such as have never been
touched to finer issues through early
contact with a truer philosophy and a
pure religion is certain to degenerate
presently into essentially the same old

here and now have its run, and touch
with harm almost all the loims ot
modern philosophy, li".v.-rature, poli
tics, religion, and life, is very proba
ble; but it would be to fall into the
same ill mood to believe for a moment
th- t the healthier thought and the
larger, wholesomer faith of our time
will not surely throw it off. We don t
want any m-gotten bandy-legged on-
spnng ot Diogenes, whatever the
special philosophical dress he now
choose to clothe himself in, about us.
Get out ot our sunlight: 13 the best
word we can have for it. Let this new
doggishness, as to the higher science
nd the real ethics, maie haste to have
done with its day!

Review of the Wool Market.
From Manger & Avery's Monthly Wool Cir
cular we extract tlio following:
The sales of wool since the middle of Janua
ry have Increased considerably in amount, but
the transactions are not indicative of a better
business except so far as it shows the disposi
tion of manufacturers to purchase freely at
f lue clothing wool has been in moderate de
mand, stocks are certainly unusually light,
and the mills have to buy quite freely of foreign
wool to supply the deficiency. . XX fleeces are
in such moderate supply that with many they
have almost ceased to be an interesting
Medium clothing wools have met with wore
inquiry than for some time past, preference
being given to unwashed, which now is iu very
The demand .or combing is confined mainly
to quarter-blood and below. The last change
in the tariff having seriously crippled the man
ufacture of medium and fine grades of worst
eds. The situation is not particularly cheering.
While our industries are adjusting themselves
to the uecessary curtailment of production
and w hile value of labor is in process of ad
luslmen', another tariit bill is attempted to be
lorwd upon the country before ti e effects of
the last one has been Jully estimated. Our
representative, reluming from. Kngland last
spring, met on the steamer four English man
ufacturers, who were coming to this side with
a view of moving their machinery to Canada.
They admitted the superior advantages offered
by the United Mates, but feared that sudden
h gislation, which would not be possible under
British ru e, might at any time ruin their busi
ness 11 iranspmi'ieq to ims country.
Territory wools have been in very good de-
mtuia; the supply of medium and quarter
plixid lias been considerably reduced and but
Texas wools have been In fair demand at a
lower range of values.

The Mythical Time,
Mr. Ruttierford B. Hayes is reported
by an interviewer to have used, the
other day, the expression, "When I
was elected president." This is prob
ably Mr. Hayes' mild way of referring
to that mythical time when the lower
regions "froze over."
Such Excessive Delight.
From, the Vason News. - -,
The appointment of Dr. Tandall,
president of the press assoc'ation, to
the commissionership to IfeW Orleans
would be hailed with delight bv the
press of the state. We hope Gov. Ire
land may appoint th doatsr.
Diseases of the Liver
IN ALL ITS
r-TniS IS A COMBINATTftX Af
Saline and Vegetable materials, and
contains no Mercury or any drastic
Vegetable rathartin nuoh u (sn)r.i.a
and Aloes, and is far superior in iu
action, as it never debilitates or pro
duces any unpleasant effects. It will
remove all diseases incidental to a dis
ordered state of the liver, and is there-
iore recommended in all Liver Com
plaints. It will act thorouirhlv on tha
liver in from two to four hours tima
aud docs not produce nausea or griping-
pains in ine uoweis.
Dr. Tobin havina suffered for vpa
with liver disease, and after trvinir
every known remedy without success,
has succeeded in preparing this remedy
and by its use alone restoring his
health now offers it to the public for
the cure of all liver troubles, and sella
it under a guarantee that after taking
three or four doses of the medicine and
satisfaction is not given, you can have
vour money refunded by returning the
uotue nun wrapper.
HEPATOZONE has since its intrn.
duction, proved one of the most valua
ble medicines discovered. lt mprir.
and success has been as gratifying to
the proprietors as its effects have
proved beneficial to those using it; al
most daily testimonials are received,
speaking in the highest terms of ita
ellicacy in its action on diseases for
which it is recommended. There is no
doubt of the value of Ileuatozone. Tt.
is efficacious, mild and thorough in it
action, and there is not to-day a medi
cine which canequal it as a regulator
of the liver and corrector of the bow
els. As an indication of its worth, .we
win siaie mai mougn everv bottle Is
guaranteed to give satisfaction, yet out
of over 20,000 bottles sold, we have had
only two bottles returned to us. We

Drs. J. J. tt W. H. Tobin. Austin:
Gentlemen I desire to civ vnn mn-
unsolicited testimonial to the virtue of
your great medicine, Hepatozone. My
mother, who lives at Lafavtt Ala
has been a great sufferer from liver
trouble for four years, physiciansibao-'
lutely failing to give her relief. 'Hav
ing heard of the cures effected by your
medicine, I procured four bottles and
sent them for her to try, urging her to
give them a fair trial, and now she
writes me as follows : "Thanks to that
wonderful medicine von spnfc mp mw
health is greatly improved; the pain in
my side, which the doctors here could
not relieve, has entirely disappeared,
and I feel like I had a new lease on
life." I have heard from my mother
since the above was written, and she
regards the cure as coniDleta. Msnv of
my friends at this place use Hepato
zone with great satisfaction, and rjro-
nounce it one of the very best of liver

Drs. J. J. W. H. Tobin:
Dear Sirs I take clr-asure in 'recom
mending your great liver medicine,
Hepatozone, and from ex perience think "
it would be well for no familv to b
without it. It is so efficient, mild, and
yet certain to accomplish what Is pro
posed by its use. J. W. Whipple.

Dr. J. J. Tobin:
Your Ilenatozone cured me of liver

INSTITUTION FOR TIIE BLIND,
Austin. Mav 10. 1883. t
Dr. Tobin: '
Your Hepatozone as a eentle mirsa:
tive has no equal. It moves the bow
els without making the patient feel
diljy, trcMiv w uiiuki. it, ia onen ine
case that we i'eel a little bilious, have
some headache perhaps, and are feeling
unweii generally, ana only need an
easy purgatiyo to relieve us; your
liepatozane Is the medicine for that
condition. I relieved a case of dvsen-
tery with it in a very short time. We
use n largely in tins institution.

From Z. T. Fulmore, County Judge:
- Austin, Tex, June, 20, 1882.
W q, Tobir- Amll
I have tried youiXepatozone as a
sort of last resort to prevent the fre
quently recurring headaches to which
I have been subjected for eight or ten
years, ana unnesitauogiy pronounce it
more beneficial than any medicine I
have ever tried. Its results upon mv
system are all and more than is claimed
tor it. i ours, etc-
Z. T. Fulmore.
Office of Postoffice Inspector,
Austin, rex., May iz, 1882.
To whom It may concern :
I hereby take great pleasure in at
testing the worth of Drs. J. J, & W.
H. Tobin's Hepatozone. I suffered for
several months, during the past winter
and spring, from a dull, heavy head
ache, severe pain in my eyea upon
awakening in the morning, paiu in my
sides and small of my back, and tongue
heavily coated, all of which, I am con
fident, was produced by a deranged
and torpid state of my liver. At the
request of Dr. Tobin, I UBed a few
doses of hia medicine, and, to my grati
fication, found myself entirely free
from the ills above enumerated and
my whole system in a healthy condi
tion, - To all who are thus afflicted I
earnestly recommend a trial of Hepato
zone. Very respectfully,
