Why I commence this letter with
the following ballad will appear fur
"At St- Paul's by the Astor, down in
There arc shrouds for the dead and flow
ers for the gay
A jolly old place lor beggars and poets,
A place to shine boots, a place to buy bil
lets." I had just returned from visiting old
St. Paul's in London, when pissing its
namesake in New York, was sttuck
with the sinuliar surroundings of each
structure. The former is 511 feet in
length and 202 feet in width; in one of
its towers at the heigth of 225 feet is
the famous bell ten feet in diameter,
and in its crypts are preserved a mu
f,euin of English history. Each of
these historic buildings is located in
the eld and crowded thoroughfares of
their ieective cities, Both are sur
rounded by high iron fences, ujion
which indigdit venders hang boot and
lace, cheap jewelry, bouquets of pret
ty flowers, and an untold num'jer of
sheets of popular poetry, among which
was the verse above quoted. One of
the Use things which I had purchased
from off the London St. Paul Church
yard fence was a ballad commencing:
"A good woman is Victoria,
Children nine had Custom," &c.
I had never doubted that Queen
Victoria was a good house-keeper and
11 wise mother but was not at the tiniu
overwhelmed with this complement to
her maternal affection. Investing, by
way of coninarision, in some of tliebul
lails from the fence surrounding the
junior Apostle in New York, I read:
"If a man who turnips cries,
Cries not when his father dies,
It is proof that he would rather
Have a turnip than a father."

There were more of tho same sort,
and in the innocent manner known
only to correspondents, I enquired
what this thing meant. My attention
iieing directed across the street, I there
beheld in immense letters covering the
entire front of a fivo tstory brown
stone warehouse the letters CAS
i'OIUA announcing that here, under
the very shadow of holy St. Paul's
otreple, and by the tide of its sepultur
rd dead, is the mother's paradise and
the headquarters of the energetic pro
pi ietorx, whose "baby medicine" is said
10 have cured the gtipes of half the
children on two continents. I felt as
if I hud the colic or was cutting my
wisdom teeth, tor laughing in spile of
myself, I still read:
"It is a fact, there is no 'may be,'
A mother's milk can't save the baby,
While sweet Casloria digests their food,
Gives them health and makes them good.

Father Wilbur, agent on the Simcoe
reservation since 1865, testifies thus
concerning his Indians: "We have
now 17,000 acres or near that under
fence; the Indians are Hying in nice
comfortable houses painted insido and
out and in all the work of their own
hands. They have tables,chairs and cook
stoves, and pictures hang on the walls.
We have three churches well built,
neatly finished, painted, and a bell in
the largest church. The church will
seat about seven hundred persons.
The Indians have thrown away their
blanket dresses and drcsa like whites.
The membership of the church is not
far from 700. We do all our black
smithing; we make all our lumber and
shingles, and wo have a steam saw
mill capable of cutting 10,000 feet,
planing 5,000 feet and cutting 13,000
shingles per day. This mill is run to
its full power and only one white man
at the works. Indians log, saw, plane,
and run the engine as well as hite
men could do. Only one white man is
employed to take measurements of log
A Third of a century ago we crossed

There is a sagacious Newfoundland
doj in Norwich. He will take the
basket, in which is a note, and go to
market, get meat, vegetables, or what
ever tho note calls for, and carry it
safely home. But he has a daily task
assigned him which he performs, rain
or shine, and that is to carry his mis
tress her dinner. She keeps a milli
nery establishment and does not go
home to her noonday meal. Regular
ly as the day cimes around the dog
may be seen trotting along Main street
at about 11:30 with a basket in his
mouth lookiug neither to the right nor
left, but going straight to the store,
where he sets it down and watches it
until his mistress conies for it. And
he is so well known, ton, among the
Norwich dogs that he is never molested.
But ou Monday a strange dog under
took to have a little racket with him
while he was loaded down with his
commissary stores. He hung to the
basket, but stopped long enough to get
a good lock at the cowardly cur that
had interfered with him, and then
started off on a run to the store, where
he dropped the basket and immediately
returned to the street and began to
search for his assailant. He found
him on Franklin avenue and proceeded
to chastise him in true canino style.
In about half a minute he sat down
and watched that cur put in his best
jumps for the hill-tops of Voluntown,
giving a ki hi at every leap. Hart

Oreson War Debt.
The commission appointed to audit
the Oregon and Washington war debt
repcrtrd about six millions due. After
' ward Congress appropriated 2,800,000
to pay a little lest than fifty cents on
the dollar. About two-thirds of the
owners were readily found, and their
money paid to them. But the remain
ing third were scattered from British
America to Mexico and from China to
Western Europe, many of whom de
spaired of ever receiving their pay,
(the government being so very slow),
and have not up to this day. Their
whereabouts is desired. Several bills
have been introduced to pay the re
mainder of the amouut rewarded, and
other amounts growing ont of said war
which are just claims.
The result will be communicated to
all interested as the bills progress in
otic MUTt1..t POSSESSIONS.
An emigration measure can be car.
ried through, we believe, to aid the
exodus westward from the overcrowded
Eastern cities, and from Europe, to
settle up our vast domain to improver
and adorn it to even send industrious'
families to Alaska, rich in nines, im
furs, in' fish and in forests; where the
poor and downtrodden of this and
other lands can find homes where- the
warm Japan stream, nearly a thousand
miles wide (of warm water), sweeps
along the Alaska coast, tempering the
air, giving out a balmy atmosphere
throughout the ast coast country, an.
extensive archipelago of hundietls of
islands. It is a wonder land the
terra incognita for futuro adventurous
explorers to seek.
Various -schemes have been spoken
of and devised to utilize our splendid
possessions extending to the North.
But none quite up to what we with
to open it up to the anxious millions
of all lands. It is a remarkable fact
lhat the climate of Alaska is as
mild as that of Scotland aud the
north of Europe, owing to the oceanic
currents. Far back in the distant
pavt these currents warmed the north
ern portions of the world, and without
them people could not exist there.
They modify the extremes of different
climates, tempering the excessive heat
of the equatorial regions, and soften
ing the vigorous climate of the higher
latitudes. Away up north and wet,
'ho extremes of Alaska, the Alcution
islands are wrapped in dense fo3
and mists like those which prevail off
the banks of Newfoundland. Fruits,
grains and vegetables are grown ia
Alaska, as in Northern Europe the
ame as in Norway, Syeden, Denmark,
Scotland and the North of England.
Once we succeed in establithiug a
Territorial government there tha
bill to do so is pending it will be
more interesting. ' Since the acquit.-
moved from 'east to west ".(measuring
from the western extreme of tho
Aleutian islands) to the west coast of
Oregon and California.
These islands belong to our purcha.
and nearly form a connection betweon
our continent and that of Asia. Thoy
reach within a few miles of Kaiut
schatka, thus forming the most prac
tical routo for a futuro telegraph line
across the Pacific, connecting America
with Asia. These innumerable islands
are swept by the warm oceanic or equa
torial Japan stream, and hence render
ed habitable, and will become of great
value to our government in future.
Once wc are thoroughly established in
Alaska, it will be to our interest to
purchase British Columbia. We need
it, and must have it. It is to the in
terest of that province to be attached to
the United States, and to the interest
of England to sell. Our railroad sys
tem must be so extended as to connect
us with our northern possessions across
Britioh Columbia. Then Tuget Sound
the Mediterranean of America
will be on the great highway of nations.
The now proposed railroad will i-tart
from the deep sea soundings of Belling
ham bay, and proceed northward, mak
ing a large commercial point ou that
bay. This increased enterprise, will
augment emigration to that and to the
North, and advance tho value jf lands,
and all commercial, agricultural and
manufacturing inrertsts will go for
ward uucqualed in the Northwest.
The most extreme northwest navigable
waters of the United States is Belling
ham bay, and a commercial place on
the peninsula between that and tha
Gulf or Georgia will supply the com
merce of the gulf aud Vs.i.couver'a
island, and will be the points of de
parture for our possessions northward.
The Boers are at last reaping the
reward for their sturdy resistance to
the British. The latest news from
London declares that they are to ba
fciven control of all tho Transvaal.
They certainly deserve this, for they
have made the country what it is, and
pioneer work in South Africa is no
