Khouan, or brother preacher, of tbe;
oriler of Sid Abd-el-Kader about J
twenty years a;o; five years aif-i he1
was elected by the council of the or-!

the south. He was thereupon pro

El Mahdi proclaimed his call to
fulfill the prophecy touching the com
ing prophet of the south, and began
to organize an army in 1S81. The
governor-general of Khartoum com
manded him to disavow his preten
sions, and sent a small force against
him to enforce the command. These
theMahdi soon defeated and dis
persed. A second detachment met
the same fate; then a column under
lle3chid Bey was destroyed to the
last man. The following January he
intercepted an Egyptian corps, on
the way to Khrrtoum, and killed them
all; in'June, he annihilated another;
and still another(under Yusef Pacha)
in July. In every case the captured
soldiers of the- khedive were given to
the spears; native soldiers were ab
sorbed into his own army when it
suited his purpose.
The next year El Muhdi overcame
the Egyptian garrisons at El Obeid.
the capital of Khrdofan, and killed
them all, with the European- officers
in command. As a rule, Christian
and Egyptian civilians, with their
women and children, shared the fate
of the garrisons. From El Obeid the
Mahdi invaded Darfur, but returned
to his capital' to meet the Egyptian
annv which had been . sent against
him under General Hicks. TIkj in
Taders to the number of 11,000 were
surrounded, and mercilessly slaugh
tered. This m the fore part of jho
vember 18S3. Last year he wiped out
the Ecvnliau garrisons along the
Nile, aboTe and below Khartoum,
which stronghold was closely invest
ed and at last captured, despite the
heroic defense of General Gordon.
With tho fall of these fortified ioss,
particularly Khartoum, the Mahdi
has come into possession of steamers,
cannon, rifles, ammunition, and other
military stores, in quantity sufiicicnt
for a severe and protracted campaign;
and tho failure and retreat of the
British relief expeditious -if uothiug
worse than failure berall3 tliem com
pletes tLe record of his military suc
cesses, and necessarily adds much to
his prestige as prophet and warrior.
"What the issno will be, time only
can determine. False prophet or true
prophet, El Mahdi commands the sit
uation; and unless Great Britain is
prepared to absorb Egypt and the
boudan, and undertake to establish
au Ethiopian India in the heart of
Africa, any attempt to punish him in
Nubia or to dispute his pretensions
in the boudan will cost more than it
will come to.
The New York HeraliFa London
correspondent has interviewed a
thoughtful ton' who summed npEng
land's crisis as follews: "It means
that Irish disloyalty is more rampant
than ever; that bouth Africa is in con
fusion ;!that chaos is in Egypt; that
Granville and Bismarck are fighting
a diplomatic duel; that the British
army is locked up in Soudan and that
the sultan is holding the key; that
Bussia is at India's gates and that the
ameer is holding their keys; that the
dynamiters are planning more earth
quakes and that the increasein the
army means an increase in the income
of the tea and tobacco tax. There is
no crisis in America except the office
seeker's crisis. I think if aliens were
allowed to hold lands I should not
seek an election in parliament, but
would start a cattle ranoh. If silver
ceases to be coined iu the United
States, India will sutler from deep
financial distress. Your new secre
tary of the 'treasury, being a bank
president, will doubtless press silver
demonetization on congress. On the
whole, therefore, let me add lo the
crisis the possible bankruptcy of In

There are many people who feel
like old street-car horses, and would
like to be allowed to lie down and
die. These people might as well be
made strong and well. Miss S. E.
Little, of Jefferson, Mo., writes, "I
have found Browns Iron Bitters
very strengthening, and most excel
lent for dyspepsia, and I have got
others to try it with good results.'

If General "Wolseley is not actually
in the saddle, he is at least able jo be

ment that his eyesight i3 unimpaired.

toum. l'robablv General A .Isi.'Iey
understands that to return hoinei
without having taken Kharfonni
would be fatal to his reputation as n
general. Since his failure to relieve
General Gordon, tho discovery has
been made that he is not'much of a
general after all. The campaign
against Arabia, with the fleet at his
right hand and ouly an undisciplined
crowd of Egyptians in front, hardly
formed the kind of material of which
great aiilitary reputations are made.
His other campaigns have been too
nearly of the same character to es
tablish a record that could stand a
reverse without damage. General
Wolseley certainly made a mistake in
naming the date when he would be in
Khartoum. That kind of thing sounds
too much like a French romance. He
could not more than guess at the
mouth, and when he fixed the day in
the month he assumed a precision
that is not even given to greater en
erals than he. But "Wolseley belongs
to a race that has never been accused
of a want of pluck. He will hardly
return to England without having
taken Khartoum, unless -the govern
ment concludes that some other gen
eral could set to Khartoum sooner
It quickens the patriotic pride of
the "American," a3 all citizens of the
united States are called probably
because the states are the best of
America -to find the much abused
greenback commanding the highe?t
premium of nny money in Havana,
being worth raore than the notes of
the Bank of Lnglaud, or even Uncle
Sam's gold. For an American paper
dollar you can get 82.50 of Cuban cur
rency, aud 81.10 in Spanish gold,
while our gold coins are valued at
82.47 in paper and S1.07 in Spanish
gold. "American silver is accepted in
about the same rates. A visitor to!
Havana no longer wonders what be
comes of our coins with holes punched
in them. They are plenty here.;
About hall the silver coinage onegeto
is of the sort repudiated by American
street car csnductors. When the
bankers iu the states combined to
drive ont mutilated coin, the object of
their distrust found a welcome asy
lum in Cuba, aud was shipped here
by the Ifcat load, and the Cuban shop
keeper will bow and scrape liko a
