The boy, Lord Druimnoiid, was but
four years younger than herself and
was leit alnuwt entirely in the eare
and company of his governess, in
whom every confidence was reposed.
Xhe household was suddenly startled
one morning by the discovery that
the young governess had mil away
with the heir. The young couple a
few days afterward returned to Drurn
moml c:ist !e from London and begged
the earl's forgTvefles&fiUl the' proud
noble, in a storm indignation at
what he deemed a a nadalion of Ills

took at once Kleeruge passage for
America at (j'.ascow. At the instance
of a lady belonging to an old and re

quest, your correspondent has been
entraircd in an investigation as to the
whereabouts of Lord Druuthiond.
Tlris lady has been absent many
years in South and Central" America

acquaintance of Lord Drumniond's
mother, the widowed Lady Capei,
during her sojourn at Lima, where
she died in 1868.

the abandonment of his family and

leaving to her a rich gold miii'-f in
Yucatan, now being worked with
much profit. The marriage of her

return to New York and put into
execution a long-cherished design, to

a British earldom.

Then, iu order to fully conceal his
identity, the future earl assumed tlie
plebiau name of George Johnson and
went to work as a shipping clerk in
a w-holesaio flour house in South
street. There he remained working
steadily fur about two years, until his
employers collapsed in the panic of
1873. The youthful couple would
have lured hard during the following
months but for timelv remittances
from the wife's family, which kept
them above actual want. Giving up
the city in disgust they finally took
up their quarters in a hut on Yap
hank meadows, near Brookhaven,
Long Island. Here for about five
years they lived a miserable, seclud
ed life, 4iGeorgc," as the tall, awk
ward youth was generally called by
his neighbors, supporting his wife
and himself bv scanty earnings in
fishing and shooting. The birth of a
son and heir in March, 1878, caused
a ripple in his lethargic life, and in
the following summer the young fa
ther meeting Mr. Carhart and some
friends, who were spending a vaca
tion in the vicinity, made himself
known and enlisted Mr. Carhart's in
terest in his desire to obtain work in
the city. Mr. Carhart verified the
young boatman's story on his return
to town and soon afterward gave him
a place in the brushing department
promising to advance him as the bar

character and cultivation were rubbed

West Indies in a schooner a year ago,
Lord Drummond has been iu the em
ploy of Carhart, Whitford & Co.,
ever since, advancing a little, but
still half shipping clerk and half
porter, and evincing much more
inclination for physical than for men
A garbled account of his discovery
on Long Island six years ago, which
apppeared in several of the papers
at the time, caused his family to take
a renewed iuterest in the lost heir.

Duke of Argyle, and of his brother,
the Marquis of Lome, Lord Walter

Council to day, Prime Minister Foray
stated that the Chinese Foreign Board
did not disavow the action of the
Chinese regular troops at Langsau.
The Board admitted that the Chinese
army had obeyed its orders to retain
I possession of that city, though this
was contrary to the secoud article of
the recent Franco-Chinese treaty,
which provided for the immediate
withdrawal of the Chinese garrison.
Chinese, however, contended that the
evacuation of'frontier towns was con-
ditiopal upon the signature of a defi-
nite treaty between France and China,
China also refused to recognize the
stipulations agreed upon betweeu Li

The Red Thread of Honor.
It is related of Sir Charles Napier's
campaign of the Upper Sciude, that a
sergeant with eleven men became sep
arated from the rest of his command.
An officer signaled an order to return,
but thev mistook the signal for a
command to charge. There were
seventy of the foe belli ud a breast
work at the summit of the mountain.
They fell there, these brave eleven,
after slaying twice their number.
There is, it is said, a custom among
the robber tribe which these brave
meu fought, that wheu one of their
great warriors is killed iu battle,
ihey bind the wrist with a thread

we imagine that things would take a
different shape ; or should Democrats
be so mean as to attempt to
swear every negro editor agaiust Re

single negro paper in the State, for
if Democratic patronage should be
withheld the last one of them would

Te arc somevhat curious to know
at what particular time in Dr. York's
existence he ceased to a Liberal Demo-
crat and became a Republican. He
was elected as a Liberal Democrat.
Hundreds of men voted for him under
the impression that he was a better
Democrat than those who oppose him
and now they are informed by him
self that he is not a Liberal Demo
crat but a Republican, that he eudor
ses the Republican platform and

his con.-titucnts would like to know
just when this political metamorphosis
took place and the particular influen
