pass them over as mere ebullitions of
igaorance which cease to do evil after

quackery, of which we may some day be
the victims. First of all, be it observed,
these placards are a common agency of
stirring up a popular commotion, and
placards against foreigners have been
known ever since the old Eons days of

is looked upon as a most ingenious de-1 ae

of the common people, and there is an
abundance of testimony in favor of this
opinion. The manipulations of Chinese
state-craft have a special nd to accom

are to bs revised, and the inland resi

Chinese are lent on refusing that de-
mand. The Earl of -Clarendon, moved by
by the Representations of Mr. Burlin- Mfo

rebuke for not paying more deference to
the wishes and prejudices of the people,
ine Chinese had these papers translated
and took the hint and the mandarins are
now manufacturing a public opinion
bitterly hostile to the residence of for
eigners inland.
No less than four German missionaries
mng in inland towns have been driven
back to Canton or Hong Kong, while
their houses have been looted and de-'
etroyed. Since the British Cabinet has
ordered that the prejudices of the Chi-
nese should be respected (and which is
all right enongh in itself), the Chinese
have resolved that there shall be an in-
creased multitude of prejudices to be re-1

One evening Mrs.
The following adventure happened in
Bath, England, many years ago, and the
lady who narrated it to the 'writer, was.
in those days, a voung girl staying in the
house. It was in the palmy days of
Bath, whea that now fallen city rivalled
London m brilliancy and dissipation
and when all the rich, the gay, and the
high-born of England congregated there
in the Reason, and graced the balls and
assemblies. Mrs. R , once the belle
of the court of George III., but at this
period gradually retiring from general
society, possessed one of the largest of the
old houses, and cave m it entertainments.
rrhich were the most popular of the
day. She was celebrated for three things
(once for four, but the fourth her leau
t.y was of the days gone by): these
things were her fascination, her benevo
lence, and a sst of the most matchless
and perfect amethysts. Her house con
tained tapestried chambers. The walls
of the one in which she slept was hung
around with designs from heathen my
thology, and the finest piece in the room
was that which hung over her dressing
table. It represented Phoebus driving
the chariot of the sun. The figures and
horses being life-size, it filled np the
space between the two windows, and the
horses were concealed behind the old
fashioned Venetian looking-glass, while
Phoebus himself, six feet high, looked

usually large party at home. She wore
all her amethysts. On retiring to her
room, about four o'clock in the morning.
she took off her jewels, laid them on the
table, and dismissed her weary maid, in
tending to put them away herself, but
before doing so knelt down, as usual, to
say her prayers. While engaged in her
devotions, it was a habit with her to look
upward, and the face of Phoebus was
generally her point of sight, as it were,
and the object on which her eyes most
easily rested. On this particular night,
as usual, she raised her eyes to Phoebus.

Fireproof Buildings.
Scarcely, any modern 8 true hires merit
tie epithet of ''fireproof. It has been
said on good authority that in the city
London only one building the New
Record Office reullv deserves to be call
so. This is built of iron and ' stone,
and has no room larger than seventeen
twenty-five, and seventeen feet high.

and if the doouments in one appartment
were to take fire, they would burn out
with as little enect on the rest of the edi-
nce 48 if they were coals m a grate. Of
course, buildings in tended for trade can-
often be constructed in this ay, but
system might be in more general use
than it is. ' The French practice in build
ings is a good one. Instead of using
flimsy laths for thin partitions, they em
plT stout pieces of oak, as thick as giir-
den psdings. These they nail firmly on
each side of the framing of the partition,
fill the space between with rubble
plaster of .Pans. They coat the
whole with the phuter. The flodrs are
managed in the same way, as well as the
unaersi.ie oi ine stairs, .nouses are thus
rendered almost as near ''fireproof' as if
built of stone throughout In Ncttiu
and bam, Eugiand, where they have gypsum
the neighborhood, as in Paris,they form
their floors and partitions in the same
solid manner ; consequently a building is
rarely burnt down in that populous man-
lacturwg town.

It is estimated, upon 'what may be re
garded as good authority, that the fire
covered over 5,000 acres in the heart of
the city; over 20,000 buildings were de
stroyed, and ninety-three thousand per
sons dispossessed of their homes; ninety
thousand buildings are left standing,
fifty thousand people have left the city,
and two hundred and eighty thousand
remain. live grain elevators were
burned, with one million, six hundred
thousand bushels of grain; eleven ele-
vatura remain uninjured, containing five I
million DUoeis oi grain, irue-naii tne
entire pork product was burned, with
the same proportion of flour. Eighty
thousand tons of coal were consumed,
and about the same amount is on hand.
Fifty million feet of lumber were burn
ed, and two hundred and forty million
feet remain unharmed nearly one quar
ter enough to rebuild the waste places.
The stock of leather was reduced about
one-quarter, the value of that burned
being about $95,000. The greater por
tion of the stocks of groceries, dry goods,
and boots and shoes were burned up,
with more than one-half the ready-made
clothing, but the quantities destroyed
were scarcely eqiid to three weeks' sup
ply, and are lieing rapidly replaced.
Tea per cent, of the currency was burned.
careful average of these larger items
with smaller ones shows that the city
has suffered a loss of not less than twen
ty nor more than twenty-five per cent on
her total assets, real and personal. The
terrible personal experiences published
in the Eastern papers are stated, almost
without exception, to be fabrications.

islands surmounted with a dome-like hill
out of which is a projection like a straight

Only the lichens, stealing
with seeming compassion over every form
in nature doomed to barrenness, succeed
in holding on to these rocks. The hill
is about eight hundred feet high, its
base environed by low, black rocks with
not a sign even- of marine vegetation.
One line of these rocks looks like fort,
the seeming gateway, higher than the
rest of the wall, being composed of per
pendicular fragments. All along the
base of the rough hill, low, irregular

Harmless Amusements Necessary.
No particular possession, or condition
or course of conduct, insures happiness.

they thought would be sure to make
them happy. He who ic his days of
toil, has sighed for leisure, finds, when
it has been obtained, that the pains of
vacuity are not less than those of op
pressive labor. Rigid adherence to par
ticular systems are alike found to disap
point their votaries of the calm felicity
which was expected from them. But let
us think what sort of world it would be.
if only one particular tangible thing, or
one particular condition, or one particu
lar course of conduct, were to confer
happiness. Evidently it would be a
world of utter sameness and languor, in
stead of the world of infinite variety and
incessant activity which it really is. We
may be satisfied, then, that happiness
was not designed to be the invariable con
comitant of any such particular things,
out to be a temptation toward an infinite
variety of pursuits, and a perpetual ac
tivity of our faculties. How otherwise
could we have been active beings ? How
otherwise could the whole of our facul
