ANOTHER 1?ESTIAN SCAKE IN CANADA. GRE.}r EXCrraKENT— MYSTERY— THE CANADIANS CON BIDiB THEMSELVES 'SOLD.' The Montreal Daily News of October 12 has the following con ceming the current 'Fenian Scare/' At about 4 o'clock yesterday evening tlie sergeants of various volunteer regiments, acting under orders of their officers, began collecting from various points. The occasion of thiB sudden and alarming action was and still ;is veiled in mystery.

It soon became known that au order had been issued from Ottawa to prepare to turn out the whole force of the country, and that the work which our volunteers were doing was being pursued with equal vigour by tlie volun teers all over the country.

PHYSICAL SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 5 January 1870

PHYSICAL SCIENCE. According to the CarupUx-Btndus of July 19tli, Father Seecbi, of Borne, has succeeded in developing the spectra of stars of the 8th and 9th magnitudes, and amongst the spectral lines in the spectra of these stars, those of carbon occur. The discovery is considered by apectroscopists to be of some importance, more espe cially as the spectra of small stars is very feeble. . BL Jamin, in a paper v.-liich vt-as recently read before the French Academy of Sciences, gave a detail of cer tain experiments performed by him for the purpose of showing that it was possible for magnetic force to be accumulated. Ho had a horseshoe magnet constructed of ten 1 inning of homogeneous steel, which he sus pended from a beam, and round the poles of which he coiled some covered copper wire, thereby causing the steel to become, when under the influence of galvan ism, an electro-magnet. Each of the steel bars had an iron plate fitted to it as an armature. The magnet was placed in connectio...

CANADA GOING. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

CANADA GOING. (From the Xew I'ork yvibuii'. October 1 ) _ _ ' When is Canada going? asked a British newspaper not a great while ago. Curious watchers of the present phase of provincial development will be tempted to say — ' Now.' We are far from wishing to maintain that our neighbours generally are for annexation. Nova Scotia, it is true, mani'ests a passionate earnestness to break from the leading strings of Confederation. Quebec threatens another meeting for annexation under the auspices of a professor and a member of Parliament, and, it is said, with the less public encouragement of an Archbishop. Local causes for this dis affection are not unknown to us — the decline of wooden shipbuilding, owing in part to the demand for iron ships ; the exodus of British industry to Montreal when the deepening or the river enabled ocean steamers to ascend there ; and we must admit that Quebec has a French character, though neither tilts nor the other considerations quite account for the compla...

CHAS. DICKENS & HIS WIFE. Interesting Letter of MR. Dickens. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

CHAS. DICKENS & HIS WIFE. Interesting Letter of Mb. Dickens. % The separation between Charles Dickens and his wife in 1858 created a great deal of speculation at the time, and called forth, as our readers may possibly remember, an authoritative explanation by the novelist of tho reasons and circumstances of the unfortunate affair. The following letter, therefore, printed in a new Boston paper called Tlie Fotio, tells nothing new, but in these days of family scandals aud impertinences may beworth attention. We should not omit to say that the gentle man to whom it was addressed was permitted and even requested by Mr. Pickens to show it 'to any one who had been misled into doing him wrong' :— My Dear ? : Mrs. Dickens and I have lived un happily together for many years? Hardly any one who has known us intimately can fail to have known that we are, in all respects of character and temperament, wonderfully unsuited to each other. I suppose that no two people, not vicious in themse...

THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1870. In recent issues of this paper we Lave pub lished the general results of Captain F. G. Hall's last expedition to the Arctic regions, as related hy himself in a communication to Mr. Grinnell, of New Bedford, one of the chief patrons of the expedition. These statements will have been road with much interest by all who have paid attention to the history of Arctic exploration as it has been prosecuted during the last fifty or sixty years. Captain Hall has been the most successful of the voyagers. It is now about seventeen or eighteen years since he set forth on his first expedition, in the course of which he not only fouud traces of Sir John Franklin and his party, but discovered and brought home to the United States many relics of the expedition of Sir Martin Frobisher, which was undertaken in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. On the present occasion Captain Hall has established the fact that one of the ships of Sir John Franklin had really discovered the North-W...

ASCENT OF MR. GALE'S BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

. ASCENT OP »R. GALE'S BALLOON. The interest taken by the public in Mr. Gale's second appointment for a balloon ascent was fully evinced by the crowds of persons who, on Wednesday after noon, in carriages and vehicles of every description, on horseback, and on shanks' pony, poured into the Outer Domain, with a view of seeing the adventurous aeronaut off. Had a general half-holiday been pro claimed for the occasion, it] would scarcely have had the effect of drawing together a larger or more respect able assemblage. Fully twenty thousand persons must have been present; probably many more. The peri patetic vendors of refreshments and the industrious proprietors of the merry-go-round were early on the field, and they all appeared to be doing exceedingly well. The site chosen for the ascent was close to the en trance to tho Botanic Gardens. The balloon was at 9 o'clock placed over a gaspipe near the central walk of the Domain, but was, by the instructions of Mr. O. Hoore, the director of...

SPORTS ON THE MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 6 January 1870

SPORTS ON THE MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND. About 8000 persons assembled on Boxing Day at the above ground to witness the sports. It was also the first appearance of the English pedestrians, who were announced to go through their training exercises during the intervals between the races. Harris, the colonial chamjnon, was placed at scratch in two races, but did not appear. After the first event, Hewitt and Bird came out of the pavilion, aud took a little exercise round the ground. The pace they' went at, however, was slow, and the public gained very little idea of what cither is capable of doing. Enough, however, was done to show that the style of English pedestrians is widely different from that ef the colonials, and no doubt some of the hitter picked up a wrinkle or two from the little they were permitted to Bee. Topley's performance was watched with more interest and curiosity, and his style called for loud demonstrations of approba tion. He did a mile at a very good pace, and the ma...
