ANOTHER EGYPTIAN WHR.
A Cairo despalch of the 24th i
s:tys: The ministry are industri-1
ously representing that the report
of the renewal of disturbances in j
Soudan are unfounded, while thoyj
have been in possession of mes
sages in regard to the disturb
ances for the last three days.
The Soudan movement has no
connection with Arabi's rising.
The false prophet announces his
intention of invading the country,
but has not yet advanced beond
Khartoum. He has several iegi
ments of Nubians. Prof. Shwein
furth has communicated the
following from Seudan: "Last
June 0,000 Egyptian soldiers were
surrounded by theiroops of the
faKc prophet and massacred."
Schweinfurth declares the situation
in Soudan dwarfs the revolt into
Most alarming news has been
received from Khartoum. The
false prophet at the head of the
whole ablebodied population of
the Soudan, reinforced by some
cannibal tribes of central Africa,
has publicly defied" Abdel Kaber
and defeated the Kg3-ptian govcr-j
nors in several sanguinary pitched ;
battles. The Egyptian loss in
killed and wounded was S000,
with their stands of arms including
i000 Remingtons. The remnant
of the Egyptian army took refuge
in Khartoum and is now besieged
there. All the provinces south of
that city are lost to Egypt.
It is stated that the capital of
Kardofan has been besieged for
thirty days; its capture is expect
ed. An attack on Khartoum will
The false prophet permits the
pouring of boiling tallow into the
eyes and ears of his captives, and
otherwise fiendishly tortures them.
These man-eaters, in some cases,
actually devour their prisoners for
refusing to recognize him as the
true prophet and khalif. Dr.
Sohweinfurth assures me that there
is a movement for the real revival
of Islam, comprising Afghanistan
and , Morocco, and the doctor is
sure that the movement will em
brace Yahtar. The faltc prophets ad
herents increase like wildfire, and
the prophet lumself is said to
be marching toward Cairo. Great
weight is due the opinion of
Schweinfurth, but I believe the
Chinese Jordon or Valentine
Baker would be able to finish the
whole business with 5,000 men.
Abdel Kaber was known to fame
as the commander of the Forty
Thieves under Sir Samuel Baker.
Giegler is a German engineer.
The Egyptian government offi
cially denies that the false prophet
has any share in the defeat of the
Egyptian troops during the late
war. The authorities attribute the
result to other causes.
The Chinese Bill.
The N. Y. Herald's Toronto
special says: The Chinese ques
tion is beginning to loom up in
Canada as one of political and so
cial consequence. The importa
tion of several thousand Chinese
to British Columbia to work as
navvies on the Canadian Pacific
railroad has aroused much feeling
among the trade unions, which, at
a meeting here Saturday night,
passed resolutionsstrongly condem
natory of "John Chinaman" being
allowed the countenance of the
government or its contractors, and
urging prohibition or restriction
whenever practicable of Chinese
immigration. In this city until
lately the number of Chinese was
very small, and as the laundry
business was the only one which
suffered from their competition,
there was no complaint. Latterly
the restriction placed upon their
immigration into the United State.- ! Tremors of the Earth,

"I'll Not Trust Ye."
Two centuries ago. in the High
lands OE Scotland, to ask for a re
ceipt or promisory note was
thought an insult. If parties had
business matters to transact they iand rises under the pressure ol the
stepped into the air, fixed their j mass of water thrown upon it b
eyes upon the heavens, and each! the titles, the maximum of :ise and
repeated his obligation .without
mortal witness. A mark was then
carved on some rock or tree near
bv as a remembrance of the con-$
tract. Such a thing as breach of
contract was rarely met with, so
highly did the people regard their
When the march of improve
ment brought the new mode of
doing business they were often
pained by these innovations. An
anecdote is handed down of a
farmer who had been to the low
lauds and learned worldly wisdom.
On returning to his native parish
he was in need of a sum of money,
and made bold. to ask a loan from
a gentleman of means named
Stuart. This was kindly granted,
and Mr. Stua'rt counted out the
gold. This dene, the farmer
wrote a receipt and handed it to
"What is tint, man?" cried Mr.
Stuart, eyeing the slip of paper.
"It is a receipt, sir, binding me
to give ye back the gold at the
right time," replied Sand.
"Binding ye? "NVcel, my man,
if yc canna trust verse! f, I'm sure
I'll no trust ye. Ye canna have
my gold.' And gathering it up
he put it back in his desk and
turned the key on ir.
"But sir, I might die,' replied
the canny Scotchman, bunging up
an argument in favor of his new
wisdom, "and perhaps my sons
might refuse it to yc; but the bit
or paper would compel them.'
"Compel them to sustain their
dead father's honor!'' cried the
Celt. "They'll need compelling
to do right if this is the road ye're
leading them. I'll' neither trust
ye nor them. Yc can gang else
where for money; but you'll find
nane in the parish that'll put more
faith in abita paper than in a neigh
bor's word o' honor and his fear
o' God." JExchanqe.
Of Mehemet Ali, the ancestor of
the present Khedive, the following
story is teld: "A milk-woman
came to the Pasha one day, com
plaining that one of his soldiers
had robbed her of the milk she
was bringing to camp. The
soldier was identified and denied
havinir taken the milk. 4What
did he do with it? asked the
Pasha. 'Drank it,' was the reply.
At a sis:n the man's head was off
his body, and his stomach, being
opened, was found to bo full of
milk. 'Go,' su'id the Pasha to the
horrified milkwoman, paying her
the value of her milk; 'but if he
had not taken it, your head would
have paid for it.' "
