A Victoria dispatch of Nov. 8th says; Two men named Jones were freighting a cargo of powder along the wagon road for railroad works a few days ago when the powder exploded.

It also promises measures to improve railroad communications and to better the condition of agricultural laborers. It expresses satisfaction at the financial condition of the country and progress of organization of the army. Their foreign relations, it will say, are satisfactory and the foreign policy of France will be one neither of subserviency nor aggressive. Tndian Commissioner Pierce has re ceived the annual report of the superin tendent of the Carlisle, Pa., Indian school, which shows at the date of the last report there were 180 Indian, boys and 87 Indian girls at the school.

HOW qCEDLlSGTOJT WAd.SKXT B0WJI. Charley Qnedlingtcn was in a thought ful mood. This was an unusual thing for him. As ? a general rule he didn't think; but the most rackety and mis chievous and debt-incurring, aon- baiting undergraduates have their mo ments of thougnt, tnougn xuey may aiu- diously . cenceal them. And unariey s thoughts, this sunny May morning, as he glanced into the blazing hot quadrangle, waiting until it snouia oe nme iu jr take ot Gordon's luncheon, were not very pleasant. "If yoar name comes be fore u? again," the Dean had said grimlv, with his sternest aspect and the old gentleman, the jolliest of talka tive hosts at dinner, eonid be very grim and stern about 12 o'clock in the day "if your name comes before us again, Mr. QuedUagton, wall have no alter native but to Bend' you R wir for a con siderable period, f You are never out of trouble, either in college or in the city. This ia the last time you will be warned, sir. Consider yourself gated alter six for the rest of the term." "And, by Jove, I believe the old gen tleman means itl" ruminated Charley, Stretching his legs upon the window seat, and puffing his cigarette smoke into the recesses of the sheltering sun-blind. "As sure as fate, I shall get into a row before the end of the term, though it is only a fortnight off. There is Cumming's wine to-night; and they'll go and draw the busar afterward, and then the' fat i will In in the fire: for whether I am there or 6afe in bed, the porters will swear to Mr. Quodlington small blame tliAml" And he lauehed with a keen appreciation of his own bad eminence. "Umphf it's all very well; bat if it comes to rustication, won't the governor be savage? He's a jolly old boy, and he'll swallow the bills with hardly a grimace; but this affair wouldn't be quite a coat ing of sugar to help them on their way." Charley's forebodings were noi wiui- out a more than usual share oi proDaDii itv. There was not muoh chance of the most popular ana resuess oi di.. a.ww o men keeping out of a row for the re maining weeks of the summer term. The dons had been very long-suffering with him. There was so much good in him at bottom, the great luminary said in flnnfldftriftu after dinner, and the lesser lights agreed with him. He looked so young; a dark-complexioned, handsome fellow, hardly as old as his years, and with but the faintest symptoms of a moustache, to which only his Bcout knew how much care and time were de voted. He appeared quiet enough, and not very strong. Appearances, however, are deceitful; and Charley was not long in impressing his set with his utterly thoughtless,- reckless gayety, which yet had not a grain of real evil at the bottom of it. His father, the Archdeacon of LoamfoH,' was a rich man, and a famous pillar of the church. Ubaney wouia oe well enough off some day; so that the mere getting into debt would hurt no one very much. But the Archdeacon had passed through his college career without a reproacn, ana was a isreav preacher, of note elsewhere than in eccle sifStical circles. It would be a terrible thing if the son of such a man should be put to open shame, ana seni aown uae the sOn of any Godless Earl or weak- minded bishop. Hullo. Charley r cried a jovial young voice from the quad below, at this point of his meditations: "you II Dreamasi with me to-morrow? Tbe last train lor Watlingbury is at 12:30." "Ini not coming, answered tnaney, rather shortly. "You re not coming? cnea nis inter rogator. "What is up now? Jtiut wait a ihinmte, and 1 11 oe with you. j And up the echoing wooden staircase, so shady and cool in comparison with the blaza aud sunshine outside, 'came Cummings, three steps at a time, and dashed into Charley s room, i "What is up now? ' he repeated. "The Dean has sent for me, and says he'll send me down if my name goes up again this term." ,f "Pheugh! that is bad. Ii would not suit your book with the Governor, would it. Charlev? .But he has said the same often before." "He means it this time; and he has gated me after six for a fortnight.";' "Gordon, what do you think is the latest?" cried Cummings, leaning out of the window and accosting a man in a many-colored coat who was leaning out a ground-floor window not far off. "Quedglington has been sent for, and gated until the end of the term. He says be won't come to Watlingbury to morrow. "Gammon! I'll come up and draw the badger. What is gating? Gordon should nave Known, ior Charley excepted, no one at St. Aldate's had more experience oi lt. watling bury races were strictly forbidden to the undergrates of the University; and even the somewhat lax rules ot t. Aidate s were upon this point as strict as those of more learned colleges. . The arrival of the trains from Watlingbury, at any rate of those late in the day, was attened by a proctor and bulldog", to see if any of his flock had been astray; while a watch was also kept upon tbe roads which led from the city in that direction. ; "Look here!" cried the tempter, clad for the occasion in the flame-colored bla zon of the Honorable Richard Gordon, "if we get back by the four o'clock train we shall see all the best of the fan, es cape the proctors, who will not be on the look-out until the six o'elock train, and save Charley's gate." ! "It is all very well for yon fellows to risk it, but I can not afford to be sent down." "Poohl not a chance of your being sent down! It an t like you to funk. What a capital time we had there last year! 1 And my cousin has a horse running and we can get a tip from him." : "Are you sura there is a four o'clock train?" . . "Certainlv. Come, that is a good fellow." "Then, by Jovs, I will go! ened Charley. , ; And as no promises are so well kept as those which please ourselves,' he kept his word to the letter. He was too young to find the pleasure turn to dust and ashes. " He thoroughly enjoyed his afrnoon on Watingbury race course; and for ones the tip, wonderful U re late, was the strong one, and the affair went off capitally. "My boy," said Gordon, taking him a little aside about a quarter to four, "you have just time to catch your train. We will risk it; but if you are not a fool you'll be off." ''I'm not going," cried Charley reck lessly. . "Then you are a fool," answered the other; "take my advice, and go." It was such a rare thing for Gordon to give advice of this kind that our hero took it as that of a good angel, who, in stead of the suggestive flame-colored blazon of yesterday, had assumed, with much appropriateness, a fashionable frock-coat, of Quaker-like gray. Quedg lington reached the station just ia time to tumble into a first class carriage already pretty full. Many of its occu pants looked as ii tne ticseis in tneir pockets might be of any hue save white, which was, and is, the color ot first class tickets upon the Watlingbury branch lins. Charley looked them over with the superciliousness of St. Aldate's, and came to the conclusion that, if under graduates at all, they hailed from some college more than a Sabbath day's jour ney from the centre of unni versify life. They had lunched well, and were loud and noisy, as was Charley sometimes; but, somehow, their loudness and noisi ness were not like tbe same things at St. Aldate's, and Quedglington regarded them with much the same disapproval that filled the Dean of St. Aldate's when brought face to fac with his, Charley's vagaries. His gaze settled at last on a face in the far corner which, under the circum stances, caused him some surprise. It was so decidedly out of place. It was that of a rather pretty girl, with afair baired, graceful little head, set off by a small gray hat. It was a faae formed to be either gravely sweet or coquettihhly smiling; but now it was a frightened, piteous little face. The sudden irruption of the noisy and excited crew into her carriage was evidently not to her liking; bat as she was sitting at the end furthest from the platform, it was no easy matter to extricate herself. "She's a governess, and a very pretty one," thought Charley. "Certainly she is traveling first-class, so she must be a Newnham or Girton girl. They get a lot of money. She is too plainly dressed to be swell. I wish I had some sisters who wanted a governess." It was not Qaedlington only whose at tention she attracted. The young men, their bets settled, turned toward her more of their regards than was polite or pleasant. From this they advanced to making eulogistic remarks upon her ap pearance to one another, and generally to talking rathtr in away that made Quedlington's faoe hot with angs By the time the train stopped at the junc tion Charley was on the point of inter fering. The yonng lady rose, however, and, taking up her cloak, stood prepared to leave the carriage. Her tormentors made way for her not an inch, but sat with their knees meeting across the pas sage. "Would you be kind'enough to lfit me pass?" she said, bravely, in quite a steady voice. But they were heated with excitement and the wine they had taken at luncheon. Charley bad come to the conclusion by this time that they were not Varsity men at all, and we will hope and trust that he was right. At anv rate they sat still. "I think," said one, with mock polite ness, "that tne ticket you showed at Watlingbury was for our destination. We do not change here." "And we really cannot spare so pretty a lace, we are nopiug w mio pleasure of Beeing you home." So the cirl was indeed a prisoner; the noise upon the platform made it impos sible for her to get help from thence. Her eyes wandered around the flushed faces and rested upon Charley's, flushed to, but from a different cause. She saw that he was not of the others. "Don't let us have any of this rot!" he said quietly. "Let this lady pass, if you please." They all turned npon him, as he rose and with some roughness pushed two or three of them aside. The girl just touched his hand, stepped lightly past them, and was out of the carriage in a moment before they could recover from their surprise. . . "Confound youl What business is it of youis?" cried one, standing up and catchine hold of his collar. Charley did not answer in words; his blood was up, and as the other maintained bis hold, he struck him with all his strength and some little science between the eyes. Ths man fell back among his fellows, and all rose up and hit out at Charley rather wildly, who warded off a blow or two, and then stepped lightly backward on to the platform to avoid the others. He was only just in time; before they could follow him the train began to move; a perter, who, in the hubbub of the station, had seen nothing of it, slammed the door; and the last that Charlsy, standing upon the plattorm, saw of his opponents, was a group of angry faces framed in tbe quickly mov ing window. , . -He turned round with a little laugh of triumph, and saw his damsel, so lately in distress, standing at his elbow. She was much the moro self-possessed of the two now. "Thank you so much," she said pret UIt: "it was foolish of me to be afraid; bat they were really rude, were they nst? I m afraid now that I have caused you to be left behind; it does not matter much to me, but it may to you. "Not a bit," answered he, with a vivacious mendacity which impressed her greatly. Yet h was not unmindful that now he could not get back to college until after six o'clock, and would cer tainly be reported for breaking his gate, even if his visit to Watlingbury escaped Attinn nd ha did not. npon his ar- rival at the station fall into the hands of the proctor, as was mast proDtDie. "They were awfnl brutes, were they not? I am very glad I was thers to b of some assistance to you." ' "And I cordially share in that feel ing," she said, with a laugh of pleasure at the thought of the blow he had struck. "I am going to see same friends who live here; but I hope I may have some farther opportunity of thanking you. I am greatly obliged to your bravew," fthe loeked Vrjghtly mp into Charley's faoe, held out a little gloved hand, and was gone; quite conscious, however, that the young fellow's eyes were fixed upon her as she passed out of the station, and was probably not ill pleased by the fact. She was gone, and he was left to kick his heels for a couple of hours in a dreary station, and get what amusement he could out of the refreshment-room and the bookstall. In time the next train came, and he rejoined his aston ished party. "Your name and college, sir, if you please?" "Quedglington, St. Aldate's." The proctor had known quite well both his name and college, but preferred to go through the old formula. So a fine was tbe least to be expected as the result of the Watlingbury trip, in addition to the penalty to be paid for the broken gate, of the nature of which there could be little doubt, after tbe Dean's solemn warning. - And, therefore, when his scout, on calling him next morning, said that the Dean requested the pleasure of his company at twelve o'clock, Charley felt that he might as well tell Bunn to begin packing his things. A breakfast with Gordon, however, cheered him up a little, but the momentary gayety sank down again at the door of the Dean's house. "What will the Governor say? he groaned. When he was ushered in he saw no sign of relenting in the Dean's face. "You were not in college, yesterday, Mr. Quedglington, by the time at which, for you, the gate closes. I am also in formed that you returned from Watling bury by a train arriving after that time. The doings at Watlingbury were dis graceful, ir, as I have good reason to know. I cannot imagine you have any thing to "urge." Charley regarded the third button of the diagonal waistcoat with a stoical calmness. - "After the solemn warning we gave you only two days ago, I think I am exercising some leniency in merely sending you down un til the end of this term. You will go down to-day. Good morning." Quedglington, of St. Aidate, was not the man to plead, even if he could think of anything to say, in mitieration of sen tence. He turned to leave with a silent bow, when the further door"of the library was opened, and a voice he knew ex claimed: "I beg your pardon, uncle; I thought vou were alone. Charlev looked up in astonishment. It was his friend of the train. "Good gracious!" said she, recogniz ing him at once, and comma: in; "1 am so clad vou are a St. Aldgate's man. Ua cle, this is the gentleman who interfered on my behalf yesterday, missing his train through his kindness. Perhaps you will thank him." "It was nothing at all " murmured Charlev. "This is very remarkable " said the Dean, in the accents of Dominie Samp- SCIENTIFIC MIS ELLAS T. Werdennan has patented his eleotrio incandescent lamp.

"Well, I am greatly obliged to you. You are an honor to the college in some respects. But of course I can make no alteration upon this account. You had no business going to Watling bury, or returning from it. Sol must say good morning." Even Charley thought the Dean was treating him cavalierly, but he was not one to make much of his services. He made for the door.

A 8an Man Treated for Two Tears as a Lunatic. . William Keating was sent to Ward's Island asylum as. a lunatic about two years ago, ami has since been kept there. He wrote letters to persons in , this city and an application for his release, on the ground that he was a sane man and had been sent to the asylum by malignant relatives, was made to ' the Supreme court. The application was denied, but the case was sent before Commissioners and a sheriff's jury. The inquiry before this tribunal, for the determination of Keating's sanity, took place yesterday. ' F. S.

The pastor of St. Chrysostom's church, Philadelphia, lately parted with a silver dollar which for two years had served as a detective of imposture. During that time he offered the coin to 113 starving men, who had tried in vain to obtain work, according to their own stories, if they would remove a heap of gravel from his back yard. One and all de clined the job. though it would not have taken more than an hour. The 114th beggar accepted the offer and the dollar. A fountain in a public square of San Francisco needed painting.
