Naturally, under the cir cumstances, only the members of the official staff, who are always on the alert at the boarding-station, were pr...

Miss Joyce has visited a good many of the provinces of India, and has interested herself in the work which is carried on amongst the villages and schools. 'We need not be frightened,' said Miss Joyce, 'that a fate similar to that which met the poor missionaries in China would befall us for we are protected by British rule.' Despite this privilege the life of a missionary in the great dr pendency is not by any means a bed of roses ; she or he has to suifer many privations and go through plenty of vicissi tudes which would tell upon the most robust constitution.

Hooper, M.P., arrived by train to-day, and proceeded to the Town Hall, where about 40 electors listened to Mr. Holder, who spoke on the State Advances BilL Mr. Fuss (chairman of the district council) presided. The Treasurer said so many invitations had poured in that he was compelled to dovetail his meetings to meet all the requirements. The Bill was so important that it forced itself on Parliament almost to the exclusion of other business. Farmers' sons were willing to leave their farms and seek Government situations. Why? Because the land would not keep them at the present prices of pro duce. And the only remedy was to cheapen money to enable them to compete with the markets of the world. This was what the present Government were trying to do, and he believed that the meeting gave them credit for sincerity in this respect. He had studied lots of banking institutions for this purpose and ...

Jftaii Jfcto0. OUR ANGLO-COLONIAL LETTER. [From our Special Correspondent.] London, September 13, 1895. The garden party at Warlies last Saturday to Sir Fowell ana Lady . Victoria Buxton's neighbors and colleagues in local work was a great success, the weather being superb. Lady victoii* makes a charming hostess, her kind eyes are everywhere ; and the Miss Buxtons unobtrusively, yet efficiently, assist her in taking care no guest, however uninteresting or unimportant, gets overlooked. ? The Hon. Thomas Playford and Miss Playford were amonprst the company invited. The Court being at Balmoral it is unlikely -n the Queen will ' command' your new Gover nor all the way to the north of Scotland to bid him farewell. I hear, however, that her Majesty has privately sent her god-daughter Lady Victoria Buxton some exceedingly kind and gracious messages as well as erood wishes for herself, his Excellency, and the family during their South Australian sojourn.

OUR AMERICAN LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] New York. September 14. 1895. Another month has fled by, and, as has been pur happy lot ever since the 4th of July, all the principal officers of the Government are BtuT on vacation. There is a monthly deficit in the revenue, and by no means a small one:, all sorts of ominous clouds are gathering bnthe foreign horizon ; the missionaries are in daily peril of death in China ; and almost in sight from our own coast a struggle for very existence is waging between the Cuban patriots and their Spanish masters— a struggle whose details, when fully disclosed, will probably awaken nearly the same emotions of horror and iudignationas the already-known atrocities in Armenia. But seventy millions or more of well-to-do Americans are glad to be blind and deaf to everything except the affairs of the immediate, present, and buy and sell and take their ease after the fatigues of the day - without worrying over what is remote either in time or in pl...
