thi account we have of it, from those
who:ought to know. It is very strong
ly hinted that this strike is, in the
interest of 'the large operators, who
have, an immense quantity of coal on
hand for which they want an advanc

officers of the Miners Association, who
have but to issue the order to "strike,"
and it is promptly obeyed and no ques

terA special Cabal dispatch from
London to the New York Tribune, on
the 11th inst., was intended to startle
the people of this country and frighten
the President into hysterics or some
thing else, but it is reeorded" that when
Grant was handed the dispatch, ho
read it quietly, and then resumed his
smoking, chatting all the while with
those present as calmly as if nothing
had occurred, his equilibrium not be
ing in the least unseated. This highly
importarit'annotincoment readS ae fol
"Initial steps have been taken for an alli
ance, offensive and defensive, between Eng
•land, Franco, and Spain against the United
States—the rejection of the Alabama treaty,
the tone'of Mr. Sumner's speech, the alleged
filibustering tendencies of Geu. Grant's Ad
ministration, and the reported connivance at
expeditions from the United States against
Cuba, being made the pretexts for a neces
sity or such alliance."
It had the effect, however, of treat-.
ing considerable excitement in Wash
ington amongst non-officials, but fur
ther than that, it failed of its object,
for no ono in official eirelee.believed a
word of it, for as yet, nothing is known
of the foreign policy of . the now ad:
ministration, consequently therd is no
cause for an alliance, such as is spoken
of in the dispatch. The newspapers,
generally, consider it a• huge joke got'
up in the interest of England and
Spain to frighten Grant into issuing a
netitrality proclamation, for•it is well
known to our readers that •Cttba is

ists or in any way assisted them, it is
feared in Europe that it might be done,
and it is to prevent such a thing, we
take it, that this English bull has been
telegraphed to this country.
The Now York Times, in an article
reviewing this reported alliance, thinks
that "the most agreeable ipid'consola
tory thought just now is that alliances
are a game two can play at, and that
perhaps a triple alliance of Russia,
Prussia and the United States might
prove an overmatch for England ,
France and Spain." We are not in a
condition for war, and the powers of
Europe have as much as they tan at
tend to on the other side of the waters.
We are bettor able to go to war' with
them, than they aro with us.
The Alabama Claims,
The English papers are now enga
ged in severely criticizing Senator
Sumner's speech on, the Alabama
Claims. By the tone of the press,
John Bull is evidently very considers_

aspect of affairs in this country, on the
Alabama question. The English Lion
sees that Grant is not to be trifled
with, and means to carry out a policy
in the interest of America and not of
England. Although Grant's course in
the Alabama matter has not yet fully
developed, they take Sumner's speech
as a fore runner of what they may ex
pect; and are howling like so many
hounds in a fox chase, and trump up
every thing they can think of since
the days of the Revolution, as a sot-off
to tho claims in question. The Morn- ,
ing Standard, a conservative organ, in
a leading article in reference to this
matter, after reviewing , the relative
position of the United States and Great
Britain, assorts that the raids and other
outrages perpetrated . by American Fe
nians in Canada during the past few
years more than overbalance the dep
redations committed by the Alabama
on American Commerce. The fact is,
the English Lion is afraid of the Amer
ican Eagle, and whilst he will endeav
or, by all the ingenuity with which ho
His possessed, to avoid the payinent Of
the claims, if ho sees that the Ameri
can Eagle is in earnest, the first time
she•screams, ho will be only too glad
to come to terms to avoid what must
be to him a disastrous and bloody war.
aff - To the many questions already
disturbing the peace of Europe, there
is now to be added the Gibraltar ques
tion. From the proceedings in the
Spanish Cortes it appears that Senor
oronse asked the Government Whether
it bad entered into negotiations with
England for the recovery of. Gibraltar,
and that the 11inister of Finance, fully
sharing the idea that such negotia
tions should be opened; only desired
them to be put off until Spain - shall be
fully reorganized. - Tho sympathies of
the world in this question will be 'with
Spain. Gibraltar, though it has been
long under the rule of England, is a
part of the Spanish nation, and sooner
or, later England will have to consent
to its incorporation with the Spanish
monarchy, as, some years ago, it had
to give up the lonian Islands of Greece.
Sfir The New York Times wants to
know now that the Pacific , Railroad is
completed, what is to be our next
great public work ? . Before the Paci
fic Railroad we had the Atlantic cable,
and before that we had the establish
ment of our Continental sYstem,'Und
before that—we might go on and enu
merate many of our gt eat public works.
As it is we, have a number of impor
tant things on hand, in different parts
of the country; but none of them aro
of such stupendous magnitude as to in
terest the whole nation. What, then,
are we to have next? Is it to be a
cable across the pacific . Ocean from
California to China ? Or—what ?
LETTER FROM INDIA
The folleNying is the copy of a pri

who for eight years past" - hasbeen sta
tioned as a missionary in India :
'• In Cainp at Golagokam Eath,}
Oudh, India, March 7 ; 1869.
_MY DEAR SISTER:--Who would have
thought ten years ago, that this even
ing would find me sitting i© a tont in
a grove of mango trees, just alongside
of a celebrated Hindoo shrine? How
I wish you could only sit down and
chat with me this evening, for I am
sure I would have many questions to
ask and much to telt which would
terest you. But since that great priV
ilege is denied me.l must make use of
this pen and paper to tell you what I
cannot, say face to facee., And first be
it knOwn to you, child of the western
world, that l'am at present at a great
heathen Meta qr religious fair—per
haps more religious than dome of the
"fairs" the fair sex of America arc
holding thesn times for the purpose of
softduing church seats at the risk of
hardening the consciences of their oe
cu pan ts.
My dear wife and "bairns" are at
home fifty mike' distant, and in all the
thousands around 'me there is not' a
white face. But I have become so ae
customed'to the language and customs
of these . poer natives that I do not feel
lonely among them. I sent my tent
on, here last week with two good na
tive brethren, who aro CarneSt preach
erS of the Gospel, and I came in a doly
(palanquiliD making a circle of nearly
75 miles to an out station, and a
couple of native christian families who
live away out in the jungle. ' The peo
ple aro gathering'here rapidly to spend
a few days in various'occupations; but

ascetic whose name it bears—"Gola
Gokam Nath" While I am writing
the jackals are prowling around my
'tent. All at once about a dozen of
them commence a series of low and
plaintive Whitings, very much like the
crying of a child. This inereases'into
a continued yell which winds up with
a few yelps like a dog, and then all
stop at once as if by order. Had you
been sitting here When this wild sere
nade commenced, having never hoard
the like before, you would have been
awfully frightened, and yet these ani
mals, which very much resemble a red
fox, aro perfectly harmless, and in
God's providence are very useful, for
they aro similar to the "Sanitary
Boards" or health officers you have in:
American cities, with this exception,
that they perform , their duties much
better than their two legged brethren,
and at a much smaller expense to the

kind of low police, to watch my tont
at night. I have never been robbed
but once, and that time the rascals took
my pantaloons with my keys in- the
pocket, my wife's underclothes, 'eta,
and my largo American shawl,' which
I begrudge them to this day.
You will see from the date of this
dtteirthatWer - arenatttly' itr - the-cont
mencement of another hot season. I
feel some anxiety about my wife and
Herbio, our first-born; they are both
quite delicate. Were missionaries not
so scarce, 1 would probably have com
plied with the advice of our physician
and have taken them to America this
year, but "the harvest is great and the
laborers are few," hence we have to
sacrifice to some extent the interests of
ourselves and families for the cause we
advocate; but should this hot season
prove as hard on my loved ones, as I
have reason to fear it. will, I' 'think it
quite possible that we will leave India
for a season at least; about the first of
next year. We had desired and rath
er expected, to stay ten years, but I
fear were I to attempt to do so I would
very likely leave Herbio and my wife
both in India: However, we are in the
hands of a kind Heavenly Father, and
only desire to follow the leadings of
His providence. Should it appear du
ty to go home next year, if we live so
long, wo will not refuse; on the other
hand should duty demand Our presence

Our Conference met this year in Ba
reilly. I 'was made Secretary this
year, and my old post of ASsistant and
Recording Secretary was conferred on
another brother. Our Conference was
the best spiritually and •socially it has
ever been my privilege to attend.--
Never have I seen a Conference so
powerfully baptised again and again
with-the Holy Ghost. 0, it .was like
that upper room at Jerusalem !, God
was with 'us in power and recommis
sioned His servants to preach the un
searchable riches of grace among these
poor Gentiles. "The morning light is
breaking," as we used to sing. Gcd
grant that the darkness may soon dis
appear. You can scarcely form an
idea of the debasing power of idolatry.
It seems as if all the evils to which hu
man depravity can lead, are met 'with
here on every side.' Ignorance wedded
to superstition has here more than a
local habitation and 'a name: This
pair of devil's brats have a•numerous
progeny, which is cursing this fair and
fruitful land. Hindoos and Moham
tnehans seem to vie with each other
in the invention and practice of the
most absurd and frequently most dis
gusting ceremonies, and all, too, in the
name of religion. Nothing too absurd
to be believed by the superstitious and
-credulous llindoo, provided the teach
or.be one of his own creed, and nothing
too cruel and abominable to be per
formed by tho haughty. Mohammedan
in the name of his prophet.. But I
