Aninstance of the serious conse quences which, may follow the in cautious induction of the hypnotic state is afforded bya case recently re corded by Dr. Jidlos Solon, of New York. An. amateur at a friend's ipsitor, and after two trials succeeded so well that the subject became ex cited, lost the power of speech, and then passed into the condition of catalepsy; subsequently he had severe convulsions.

REPORTED ATTEMPT ON THE LIFE OF TtTK CZAR. LONDON, May 31. I The Czar and Czarena are in Moscow, despite the discovery three days before the opening of the ex exhibition that fonr large boxes of dynamite wtre passed by the Customs department to the exhibition as goods to be exhibited, and allowed to pa>s the French and Russian frontiers unopened, they being re ceived as machinery.

Extraordinary precautions arebeing taken ; even triumphal arches have been dismantled in the search for ex plosives.

THE NEWFOUNDLAND FISHERIES. LONDON, May 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
THE NEWFOUNDLAND FISHERIES. LOUDON, Mav 29. I [ A compromise has been arrived at between* the Right Hon. W. H. Smith and the Newfoundland dele gates on the fisheries question. A Newfoundland Fisheries Bill will be introduced in the Imperial Parliament, the object of which will be to enforce a modus vivendi. France is to be withdrawn if the Bill is passed by the Colonial Legislature. The BUI is looked upon as satisfactory, as it is expec'ed that the French Admiral on the Newfoundland coast is enforcing an excessive claim for all fish caught at St. George's Bay.
The Mulgrave District. FROM OUR WANDERING CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
The 9KuI$rrave Di§tri«l. FBOSf QUE WAXDERXXG COEEESPOK'DEJrr. MY Mulgrave experience is a mud bespattered and exceedingly wet one. Leaving the Queen's and its obliging host we took the coach to Blackweil's, sixteen miles out, where we stayed the night; thence on through drizzling rain and boggy tracks we merged into the Herberton-Mulgrave road, and its faint; odour of limes and oranges fol lowed us through the right branch of the Mulgrave, which with difficulty we swam. The country is precipitous and every creek has its course covered by quartz blows, and iron and sulphur slime in them as we pass. Uphill, through splendid country and over ranges for thirteen miles (the Mul grave is swollen, and you have only the foot track), then going through Toohey Creek and the old worked out diggings you reach an altitude (mid fog and mist wet through) to gaze on a Queensland Niagara of about 250ft fall, over which yon must pass on a tree. Should you slip, the breakers will throw you to eternity...
Postal Irregularities. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
Postal Irregularities. AGAIN it is ©ur unpleasant duty to direct the attention of the Post master-General to the gross incom peten|^;-or carelessness displayed by thepJK. bffice officials at Townsville, in tire matter of forwarding the Southern mails inland by the first train after arrival. When we directed attention, to this matter a few weeks ago, the Townsville Bulletin, whilst admitting that inland residents were frequently put to a considerable amount of inconvenience and loss, owing to the fact that the mails were not promptly transmitted by the first train, excused the officials in Towns ville,, on the grounds that they could not be expected to be on duty night and day. We do not for a moment suppose they could, but that is no satisfactory reason for the delay in sending on the mails. It would not foe too much to expect the department I to pay a man to sort any mails that I arrive late at night in Townsville, so that they would be ready for des patch by the first train in the...

Sew Orlean?s Massacre. (Glasgow Weclely Mail, March 21.) In OUT issue of 25th October last we pub lished a lengthened statement regarding a bloodfeud or vendetta existing among Italians in Jfew Orleans It bad accom plished the death of many victims. The latest evidence of its utterly lawless character was most startling of all. " The death of Mr. David Hennessy (the report said) proves to be the work of the Mafia, a mysterious Sicilian vendetta society, which Las existed here for many years. Last -May a band of these Italians surprised another band in an ambush, and riddled the entire party with bullets, killing and wounding six persons. The authorities thereupon determined to take extreme measures to end the vendetta, which disgraced the city, and had already resulted in more than forty murders among Italians and Sicilians in Jiew Orleans. Six persons were arrested and tried for the murders in May, but during the trial all the leading * witnesses were assasinated. Themenchargedwere...

Be made a long speech, occupy ing nearly three hours, the chief part of which was an attack on the Government, and particularly on the Premier, for their policy. Dealing with the Federation pro posals, of which the Premior had given notice, he said it was a trick, a sham, and a political brand. He believed that Federa tion would come, but he did not think the present scheme could be matured and carried into existence, but that when Federation came, it would be upon a basis of indepen dence and nationalism. He said the Pre mier's advocacy of the present scheme re sulted from the fact that he was aware that protection was coining, that the p...
