A visit to Parliament House was vcrv much a reietition of that to the Stale apartments in Windsor castle. , itur ried walk through the rooms with a guide in front, pretending to describe the paintings, in a sing-song kind ol a way, and a policeman behind, insisting that wc shall "pass hoti;'urry up, please." And so we are crowded and jostled throitL'h the beautiful corridors and rooms, and come out with mind so con fused as to lie afraid to attempt a de scriptiou, even of any one of the rcalK exquisite paintings, statues or tapestries which wc have seen nut not cnjoycti. Ol course tun brain holds the same im pression of the old rascally Mormon Henry VIII. who is accompanied hy his six wives, anil looks very much as if he was considering the propriety ol establishing :slill another church in order to get pcr iinission to marry six more, w hen a mer ciful providence cut short his beastly ex istence. The most interesting part of the build ings to us is Westminster Hall, where we are ieriniUcl to linger a lew moments, and catch inspiration of the scenes which its walls have witnessed and to think with sadness upon the number of goon anil true men who there have been sen tence to cruel torture and death, liven as the martyred Wallace was, "to lie hung, drawn and fpinrtcred" iieeausc hi had done deeds most noble, and had .dared to hold andcxprcss opinions diilcr ing from those ol the powers that I c Truly intolerance is not a new thing, nor is it a thing of the past. Many ol ns know that even ill America, and in dear little Ashevilic, that a man is advised to form his mind according to the dictation of the parly bosses; but, as the days ol 'hanging, drawing and ipiarleriiig" are past, some men decline to do so. Wc now enter Westminster Abbey, ami truly are ustonished ut the sight which gleets us. Description after description we have read and listened to, and yet wc jiad not the slightest idea ol that which ivt now see' as wc stand astonished, awe struck, in this wonderful church. How then can we attempt to give you a fain! description? Truly it will be a failure wc know, but try to sympathize with us us we cuter the north transept and look through the lofty arching columns in all directions, surrounded at its base with statues in while marble ol every imagi liable shaie and design, illustrating the virtues ol men and women whose ashes lie beneath, and impressing one with the remembrance, as staled on the tablet ol lie poet dray, that "Lite in n jest, anil a!l tilings slit'w it : I thmiKlit so oin-c. hut now 1 know il." Vc can conceive of nothing more abso lutely wearisome than an inspection of this tremendous Abliey ; perhaps any one ol lis works of art would delight us, Inn the tout en .sanble oppresses us beyond measure. Of course wenre delighted with a walk through the chaiiels which con tain the royal tombs, although the guide hurries us along all too fast for our wish. Everything we pass, see or touch is reeking with history, and no one can fail to realize in himself a feeling that it is impossible to convey to others, as he stands at the very spot which contains the ashes of poor headless (Jueen Mary, ami not far away those of her cruel kt sccutor (Jucen lilizabclh, and sees i lie royal chair on which the Scottish, Irish , and more recently, the liuglish kings, have all been crowned while seated upon the "King's Stone," of which the legend is -that it composed the pillow of Jacob ivhcu he dreamed his dream of the lud idcrs reaching up into Heaven, and saw -,thc bright angels ascending and descend iing on errands of mercy. Of course geologists tell us that this is impossible; that no such stone can Ik Jttiind in the linst, b.it perhaps they do .not Know everyining yet; ami ror our :ilves. we prefer to hold to the old, old ismrv, and hoiie that all successive mini may see the loveliness of the vision .a ii' l Ik' inclined to "go and do thou like wise." A wonderful piece of carving is seen in MiicofLhe numerous side chapels, a hus- liaud supporting the lorni of his liv ing ile, while from the tomb, on which the Jiurcs arc placed, Death darts out, grial mall the horrors wilh winch he can Ik imagined, and directs hisjuvcliu at the lovely, drooping form. A icw American mementos are found, jind our Longlcllow is appropriately cn-t-hrimd among the nobility less noble than lie. Also wc sec with sadness a monument in memory ol Maj. Andre, sacrificed to the treachery of Arnold, and we rcllecl how much wc would prclcr at this da v to have Ikvii the victim rather than the racal who escaped; truly a few Heeling years make many hard things come all right, ,As we More remarked, a sense of ex treme weariness attends our visit to Westminster Abbey ; it is so lar lieyond our Kwer of grasping its marvelous beauties and adornments. Yci vdillcreul is the sensation produced by St. 1 'mil's ciuncdral. Its wonderfully calm and Kaceful magnitude, its lofty airiness un adorned' by aught else than its own per fection of proportion; its statues ot the v ry iK'St art, located so us to allow a imioi to see one at a time, and to drink in its beauties; and most appropriately in this grand church we stand, ami lain would kneel before the form ot John Howard, truly u philanthropist, "who travciscd the civilized world to reduce tlie. sum of human misery, from the throne to the dungeon." Here we could realize the scene in the grand old temple, where King Solomon "spread forth his hands" in prayer to the God who chose his house, and this as his own. In no other place hare wc ever felt so ueur the Tliroue. What curious (icople we are, not satis fied with the swce ami holy thoughts engendered by St. Paul's. Wc hasten thence to the terrible Tower, with all its horrors ol murders and cruelties, enough to make the most hardened man shud der at the consideration that they emu- tinted from the brain, if not the heart, called human. Here we, with the same morbid curios ity which brought the crowd of sight seers, looked into the room in which the innocent young princes were most foully killed, and saw the spot where their liones were recovered years upon years afterwards, and borne to their present resting place in Westminster Abbey, and where innocent Anne llolcyu was cruelly U-heailed in order to make room for an other Mrs. Henry VIII, and where the gallant knight, who lirst established our own colony, was coiitiiicilnniltlooincd to death; and then wc painfully climb the narrow winding stair to Hcnm-hump Tower, whose rugged walls of stone, not so hard as the hearts of the tyrants, are indented with scrolls and emblems, placed there by the poor prisoners who llius iK'guilcd the weary days, of which only too lew were allowed them on earth. At the Traitor's gate, through which the steps lend down to the Thames, we fancy wc can seethe barge rowed up to deliver its burden, brought from the judgment seat of Westminster Hall into the cold stern embrace of these massive, frowning walls, from which there could lie no cscuK' other than through the gale of death. Xow is it not a marvelous t hiug thai the outcome nl all t I'csc horrors should lie a nation such as I his, in which every individual seems to led a personal inter est in his sovereign? Would we not nore naturally expect that the x.-oplc would be roused to indignant rebellion against a government in which it was ever possible for such deeds to be cn .icled ? And yet the fact faces ns that Ureal Ilrilain is the most powerful na tion of the world, and that its clticl strength consists in the absolute devo tion ol the people to l heir Ouccii. Oltlil they would only teach their bakers how to make decent bread, and their barbers to give a coinloriablc shave, what a glo rious land this would be! ! T. W. I.

All the north western country seems lo be bin ning up m lorest fires. The smoke has been so dense ill Portland for the last two or ihrcc weeks that, loi a time, it was im possible to sec far up the street, and the sun and moon looked like balls of lire. In the harbor the smoke has had the effect of log, and steamers have Ikiii re tuiicd to blow their whistles every lew uiiiiiilis lo avoid collisions.

The icople in some in stances had scarcely time lo cscnK and hail lo hurry through the woods, the lire Hong so thick along the regular roads. An extensive lire is raging in southern Oregon, south of Rosebud, and a niun Ur of houses have been burned. Some ol the forest tires arc the work of tramps. If they arc not treated well at uny place, they start tires out ol revenge. A number were run outol the Mclx'tin set tlement, in southern Oregon, the otlier day, nnd taking to the woods started a tire.

Keiiii silinn ;ikts .'ire in the hands of marshal rri'y. hx-ehanuii Jake Kilrain is now in the elutehes ol the law. He was eap tnreil ahout seven o'elock this morning as he stepped trun the Norlnlk hnat on arrival nl her whnrl. When Kilrain walked olVlht ii;u-' platdc aveompaiiied hv his wile, serueaiil Frank Tanner greeted him wilh the.se words: "How do. jnke, marshal l'rey wants to see you." "All riht J mil ready to jo with yon." The sergeant was armed wilh the pn-ner authority, viz: A warrant issued hy Governor Jaekson for Kihain's ar rest Itv virtue ol a requisition made on hii.i hy (Iovernor Lowry, of Mississippi. U l.cn apprehended hy the sergeant, Kil rain wailed only lony enough to get his ha together, and sent them wilh his wile to his residenee in this city. He Ilk n entered a carriage and was driven lo the central police station, lie was no:, put under lock and key.'as is custom ary wilh i hose apprehended for any mis demeanor, hut was allowed to rest him selt in C'aptain Iranian's private room. Kilrain was not at all upset hy his ar rest, I nil look matters coolly as he en joyed a nice break last In mi a near hv restaurant. Kilrain is looking' well, lie is somewhat tanned owing to ex posure on the hcach at Hid Point ; his eyes are bright, and his general appear ;imv is that of a man in perlirt health. His moustache, which was shaved oil pi ior to his tight with Sullivan, is grow ing now, and altogether he resembles his appearance when he was a trainer lor the Oriel Honl Club several seasons ago. Jake weighs about lioo pounds; and out wardly he bears no marks whatever ol his recent encounter with Sullivan, and if lie was injured, the rest he has had,! and sui f bathing at Old l'oiul, have cflcetcd a cine, lake regrets thai he could nol outline Ins lul urecoursc, owing to the uneci luiiily as to what would he done wilh linn by (iovernor Lowry. lie said: "Iliad intended all along lo give iii self up, and was only waiting to see; wiiat they would do with Sullivan. I thought it was littler lo do thai than to keep dodging around the country trying to evade arrest. Thev would have hounded me anyhow until they captured uic, and I did not care to leave the country, as all my interests are here, and I think lean do well, when once more I am free. I nfortualcly, however, I ea me home a lew days too soon. Had I waited a liltlelonger, 1 would have known what was don lo Sullivan, and then wou'd have known what to exjHcl myself. Of course I exjKvt lo get the same that he does. If it is a line and six months in jail, then I will get it loo." "If thal'should be the result, Jake, what will you do after serving your sen tence?" iiupiired a reporter. "Oh, I don't know. I have not made any plans lor the future. I have several dlcis from combinations to go on the road, and any one of them would pay me prclly well. I suppose I will havclogivc up all such ideas now until I fine what they are going to do with uic down Smith. " In relation to the tight he said that Sullivan was in prime condition, anil that he considered Muhloou the best man in the world to handle the big fellow; in fact, he could not have Ikcii gotten into sm Ii condition by uny other man. When asked his own condition, Kilrain would say but little. lie said: "I was not as strong as I expected to be, and Sullivan much stronger than wc thought hiin to be." "A great many people think that Mitchell did not handle you projierly, Jake," said the reporter. "Oh, 1 guess he did as well as he knew how," was the reply. About this time Kilrain's friends be gan to drop in; among them was Joe Whyte, his lawyer, It was at first thought that an attempt would be made to get out a habeas corpus lor his release from custody. Hut lair dcvclopmcnls in the case show this ionise has lieen aban doned, Kilrain having decided to go at ouec on the requisition to Mississippi. Marshal h'rey telegraphed the news of kihain's capture to (loverner Lowry cailv this morning, and il has becnai- :;;::gid to scud Kilrain, accompanied by Captain Fainan ami Sergeant Tanner, f h'.y will probably leave to-night lor M lysssippi, Si'eivcy has been maintained b Ihe police, as it ts now known that on i he IMUli of July (iovernor Lowry made the requisition on liovcruor Jack son, who immediately issued a warrant lor Kihain's arrest. This was received hv the marshal on July 31 , and he at oucc lieti iled olhccrs lo keep a sharp lookout for Kilrain, who was known to lc in the vicinity (if Norfolk; and every morning for the past two weeks, the incoming boats have been watched. All this time detective Norris was cavorting around llic country and the ncwspajiers were full id reports about his doings. The Baltimore police, however, laid low, and luially were successful. Marshal Frcy is Itcrfcctlv satisfied with the legality of Kihain's arrest, ami said, "1 have had many illegal papers thrust at mc but would not touch any of them until 1 got a warrant direct troin( iovernor Jackson; then I got to work. You see, if the pa pers were in the least faulty, then Kil rain's arrest would be illegal, and he could move his release on a habeas cor pus; but as the matter now stands, in H'V judgment everything is (icrlectly straight and the only thing is to turn 1; i ut over lo the Mississippi authorities. There is no case against him in this State; and all wc hail to do was lo arrest him on the requisition of another Stale." Latest developments arc to the etlect that Kilrain wilt do nothing here, but will go to Mississippi and make his light Irclore the com Is ot ili.il Slate. He will certainly leave Baltimore in charge of Capl. l:arnan and sergeant Tanner to night. lcirlul Thunder Hud WlnclHlonii. Al.m nriiKyi'K, X. M., August 14.

During this time Justice Fiel and Depuly Marshal Nagle retieated 1 the sleeping car, where they wereseeiirely locked within. At limes Mrs. Terry would call upon the citizens to arrest them.

Sax Francisco, August 1 L Southern overland train arrived at Dili) street station in Oakland after 11 o'clock this morning. A great crowd had col lected, the telegraphic intelligence of the Lalhrop tragedy having preceded the arrival ol the tram; and the sleeping ear in which Justice Field was silling was at once besieged by I nitcd Stales olhciah and newspajter men. Justice Field main tained his quiet demeanor, and replied to the press representative when asked to narrate the particulars of the shooting is follows: 1 can tell von the story a lew words. For the ilast few months all manner of reports, both public and personal, have reached ine that Jud I crrv had threatened to subject mc to some form of indignity il he should hap pen to meet mc. This lact caused the I'liilcd Slates Marshal to decide to pio vidc such protection n he could during my stay in this Slate. When 1 stalled lor Los Angeles to hold court, deputy Na gle accompanied mc.

He asked me in thai city when 1 intended to return, and accompanied mc, taking a seat in the sleeping car op posite to inc. We heard this morning that Judge Terry and his wile were on the train, but paid no attention to the fact. When we arrived at Lathrop, we entered t he eating station lo get break- last. I look a scat al the end of the ta ble, while Nagle sat on the side of inc. Terry and his wife came in the room soon alter. As soon as she saw me, she went out of the room as I afterwards learned, gin g to the ear for her satchel.

Atlanta, ('.a., August 14. In reply to the statement of acting Postmaster ficucral Clarkson sent out to the Associ ated Press in relerence to the appoint ment of the negro clerk Penny to a position in Atlanta postoflice, the Con stitution will say to-morrow in a doulile headed editorial': "That the authorities in Washingtifti are dclerinined to distort the facts relative to the appointment of llic negro Penny to a place m the Atlanta poslolficc is clearly shown liv the tele gram which we printed yeslcrdity. Nearly every statement attrihiited to the acting Postmaster ('cneral Clarkson in that telegram is false on the lace of it. anil the telegram may justlv lie regarded as a delilieiatc attempt on thep irl of officials supposed to he close to the adininislra lion to deceive the pulilic with relerence to even that has licconic notorious. Mr. Clarkson says that the Atlanta post master Cicucral Lewis appointed Charles C. Penny who stood at I he head of I he civil service list of eligihlcs. This is false. When Lewis appointed Penny he w.islhc lowest una list of two, and Lcwisdid not discover until afterwards that Sturgis, the white applicant, was not cligihlc, lor he appointed him to a clerkship in another department nevt day. Lewis himself says lliat he appointed Penny to a position in t lie registry ilepartniciit Iieeausc he would there lie less lialilc to ciiiue in contact wilh the pulilic. Hut Mr. Clarkson says that Penny was assigned to work in the register division; not in the same room with the young lady, hut in another. The impression here sought to he left on the pulilic mind is lalsc. Lx-postmnstcr Kcnl'oe who Knows a great ileal more aliout the workings of the poslofficc here than Lewis, says that the clerks in the registry tep.irtiueiit are necessarily lirought into out.ici and association. Mr. Clarkson -ays that "the young lady and hcrfalhcr, .vho was superintendent of the registry livision, and had the assignment of clerks, liolh resigned Iieeausc a negro had i urn appointed to a place in the office." That this is absolutely false, is shown liv Mr. Clarkson himself, who goes on lo sayth.it there were live negro clerks in the postoflice under the Democratic nost- inaslcr.

There has liccn no trouble as Postmaster Lewis' bond.

Il is no wonder thai, since the slorv h:is gone lo the couiiirv, there is in altciupt on the pin t ol Atlanta to ex- lam it.

'here was no more justification in the ilhcr and daughler resigning than there would have been if Ihey had resigned when the Democratic postmaster had live negro clerks in lie same olhcc. ThcCon- lilr.ion admits that llicre were oulv wo men on llic eligible list. The va ancy to fill was ill the registry division ir which the negro was iiia!iiicd. 'flic Ihcr man was chosen the next d.-iv for iiiolher vacaiicv in the office and which tcaucy he was more competent to till, he spirit of the Constitution mul those represents, simply represents those who arc unwilling to accept Ihe negro its cili.cn, and w ho are unwilling to let llic colored icop!c show their capacity to hold clerkships or othcrgovcruineut posi tions."
