Boisrand-Canal, however, made himself master of Port-au-Princo, and Salomon was obliged to leave the country. Tho people then called on Gen. Legitime. Gen. Thelaniacquo mcanwhilo entered the city, a j.rovisioiial government was formed, with Boisrand-Canal president, and his rivals in tho cabinet. On Oct. 10 an elertion took placo and Legiti.mo was elected president. It was in the cabinet of Boisrand-Canal that Hippolyte wa* chief of -olice.  Choico Liquors Preserved In the Cellftnof the 9IotropoUs—Grapo Juice and Brandy*  Tlie total floor area at tho vaults at tlic London docks is a million supe^ flcial feet, and in this space 88,000 pipes of wine can easily be stored, and then room found for 75,000 casks of brandy. The various vaults are built in the form of a crypt The largest of iLese—the cast vault— covers four acres of ground, and as we take our li.^^lit, a small oil lamp fixed to the end of a piece of wood some eighteen inclies long-, our guide informs us that there aro in this collar alone twenty-o]i3 miles of scantling wir^ or miniature railway linea, over which the barrels are i-oUed.  The roof for yards and yards is co^ crcd with a beautiful species of fxmgus, the growth of which is duo to thè fumes of the w ine, a peculiarity which is all the moro noticeable, as where no barrels find a temporary resting placQ no fungus grows aloft. It is as light as feathers, and takes the most elab-onite and artistic forms. Small hillocks, gig-antic bunches of grapes, long 1 cpcsj which a puff of the breatn wifl faiap in two, while such delicate designs are to bo found hero as to, make the lover of laco envy tho patterns. In tho midst of all this mushrooma grow, and in tho ceason a good crop Is idwa^-s secured.  "Tiio Drciv,'ing lioom" covers nearly an aero. Tliis is a private vault, scrupulously clean, tho sawdust carpet uiisyotled. It is rented from the com-p;.ny by a well known firm of wine luLiohi'jits, and as we examine a cask marked "The Duke," we learn how testing is managed. The bung of a barrel is never removed for ^ting purposes, but the attendant hastolwro a small hole in the cask, aiid the wine flows into the "dock glass. The taster having satiaiied himself as to strength, the flow is stopped by the insertion of a small sticK of wood. Every hoio has to bo accounted for, and Ilio total must correspond with the number of "tasting orders" issued from the o^vner's oiTico. Sometimes a whole barrel runs away in tasting.  Tlie brandy cellar covers about seven acres of gi-ound aud some 21,000 casks are resting there just now ; but during the Franco-German war tho authorities contrived to provide accommodation for 72,000 casks. AU the brandy was driven out of France; its value was $15,000,000, and an official who helped to receive tho barrels at tho time lias made the interesting calculation that if thev had been placed in a lino they would hi^vo stretched for lliirty-four miles. Tliore arc casks of brancly here—profusely decorated with cobwel)s—over twenty years old. One of tho gangways is neaiuy a quarter of a mile long, and in the midst of this hu^o cellar runs tho snow tank, into which all the sluice, snow ana mud of winter is poured.  Tho "vatting floor," where brandy is improved by mixing one quality with another, contains some of tho largest spirit receptacles in tlie world, gigantic yellow tubs symmetrically made, on eaeli of which is painted its holding capabilities. Hero is one which requires 1U,0U0 gallons of liquor to fill it, another takes 8,000, others 2^440, l, i5U, 1,500 and 530, something like a thousand gallons of bmndy running through the taps every day.  The mixing process has ceased at the moment of our visit, but it is whispered that in anotlier corner of the clocks a large auantity of gin is about to be converted into "sweetened." The "sweetening" barrel, holding tho modest quantity of 5,070 gallons — into v/hieh the gin in its unsweetened state ii. to be poured—is on one floor. Above it, immediately over its huge mouth, is an opening somo yards in length imd four incjfies deep by nine inches  ide, and into this a rivulet of gm ia flowing from the interior of five large casks which aro emptying themselves into the barrel below. As soon as these are empty others take their placcj and the "vat filled, the sugar in a liquid state is added, tho v/liolo mixed to-iether, and sliortly aftcrv\-ard it is jottled, .sent abroad and approved of as the choicest "Cream of the Valley."  A word about the bottling department. As fast as tho \vino is put into bottle it goes out for export, the averagfo number of dozens, sealed, labeled, capsuled and packed in cases every day being 400. A good packer can case a hundred dozen bottles between 8 and 11 o'clock in tho morning. In the cellar below tho bottlnig room-where, by-the-bye, COO dozen bottles can bc placed sitlo by side of the floor— tho barrels are kept and although tho ccUar is lighted with gas, fifty-four lamps are needed for dark days, nino of these being "Davy's." Here in one corner ai^e the wax pans, tho merchants not only havincr to provide their own bottles 'and labels, but wax into tho bargain. It takes fivo minutes to melt n i)an of wax. It is placed in a coTOer pan, heated over a gas stove, and when melted is placed in a receptacle containing a small spirit lamp, which keeps tho wax in a liquid state, and finally the case is locked.—London Tid-Bits.___  Tho Many Climate» of Japan.  Japan is a land of mountains and valleys, and it has as many difBerent climates as tho United States.
