liOMDOM, December 1®*—The Fenama Canal Company la doomed. lU laat al-fort to obtain asiiiatanea from tba QoV-•rnment baa fallad.
In the Chamber of DopntlM to-nlfht the bill anbmittad by M. Pey trol, Mfn-latar of Finance, authoriiing the com-' pany to anipend the payment of its in-tereat and bonds for three months was ff ported ad tersely by the apeolal oom-fbittee appointed under the tote of nrgsnoe to consider It A long and ex* oited debate followed. Pathetic appeals Srere made to the House to sustain ths great enterprise with which the honor and pride of the Nation were bound up.
On the other hand bitter denuncia* tloDi were beard of the mistnanage* mente of the aflalrt of the com* pany, the! wanton extravagan mlaappropriation of ftinds, wholsaal corruption of the prese, and deception of the ptrblio. M. Paul Do (Jassagnao defended the company and its mana* fere. He charges that the committee had been packed with enemies of the company to ruin lt( that it had not giren the bill proper consider* atlon; that it had refused to beer even the oflioial liquidation of the company, and wound np by declaring its hoatlle report the deliberate strang* ling of a noble enterprise.
M. Oolrand, who has opposed the company from the beginning, made an ef-feotire epeeoh against the bill, dsnonno* log the men who bad deluded the nation. To assist tbem wonld be to perpetuate the deception, and only postpone the diaaater wbioh was sure to eome if the great work was left In their hands.
There were many violent soenM, and the President more than once threatened to enspend the sitting.
Fi'nslly, amid ezottemont so Intense that it nearly qnlted the chamber, the ijnestlon on the oommltteea report was uken,Nmd it waa adopted by a vote of S62 to 188. Id tbeatreets the febllng over the result runs high and petite Dourse la in a state of aemi-panio.
But there le noenrprls*. The oompo-eitlon of the committee has led everybody to anticipate the decision.
It was noticeable throughout the debate that the attack was direoted against the oompany and Its ofhoers. Little
f as or Is said against the work itself, eople, althoogh staggered by the failure <Sf the flnauoial scheme, still have confidence in the ultimate completion of the oanal, and are ready i^in to pour forth their money for that purpoose.
Thiele, indeed, earprtsing, but Francs has not surrendered her prerogative of making the world wonder. In the midst of the collapse which was expected to bring rnln, and perhaps revolution to the entire country, this nation out of pure sentiment, yesrniag in her Isolation fof the great power, has laid Its hard woo earnings st ths feet of Russia to ^he extent of hnndrede of millions of ft JOB. In one day the Russian loan, f( - ed and refused by the rest of F ."ope, was taken up three add four •es over by entbusiostio Franohmen. speotaole has paralysed the rest of L ope, Berlin, Vienna and St. Petersburg, too, are astounded.
They did not believe the French in their deyc of depression and despair were oapable of snoh a splendid exhibition of epirit and power. It has almost re^-'ored Frsnoe to the front rank, out of \ cb Oermany has ao long endeavored to eep her. What the eflfeot hae been >n Russia remains to be seen. Russians have not yet sufficiently reoovered from their surprise to speak tbelr sentiments.
The generosity can not but fall to bind the two oountrlee eloee together, and the people may have thus fonnd the means, by instlnot or inspiration, of bringing about an alllanoe at which diplomats have labored for years In vain.
No one can say tbs action la Quixotic, for in tbla ease the sentiment ooinoides with the wisdom, and its praotieal result oan not but strengthen the oountry, and may perhaps eeoure a powerful ally.
Offlcora of the Secret Service have been aware that a large quantity was stored at Sarhla, opposite this city, for several montbc. It disappeared a few days ago and was traced to Sand Bnach, on ths Ijake Huron Sbors, where it had bsen Shipped In a sail-boat* The seisnre made last úlght was valued at |3s,000.

Farmera are again compljklninf that the game which they ralae on tbelr fartnn la killed hy others, and ara xivlny tba eity eportaman tba lion’a ehare of the blame.' Now here are two lllnetra-th>ns from which the readat can form his own opinion and Judge for bimaeif whom tbe larmera ongbt to keap off tbelr farms.
First, take tbe city chap. He spends a few clays of the open season in the country, and though equipped with the finest outfit, he is generally, nnable to find much game, because be Ja not accustomed to its haunts, anc| when ba does find a oovey of qnall)ha flashes
tbem in a sportsmanlike mani\er and .......thi
tries to kill them on the wiugj) and fra-qnantlv his baz of game is very light after a day's hnnt. i
Next take the conntry loafer, the arcD-eQemy of the game. Long before tbe season opens be prnwlu abont the country and locates every, covey of blrda for miles aronnd. Ha does not shoot for aport, but for money, and wherever his eagle eye spies a covey of qiSail huddled together on tbe ground bft fires his deadly load into them, and with ona shot ba killa more birds than any city sportaman would kill in twenty shots.
The qnail season closed in Ohio yesterday.
Tbe interest in trap shooting, formerly ao strong in tbis city, baa almost died out.
Tbe field trials of tbe American Field Trials Club are being run at Wesit Point, Miaa.
The black baas has retired to his win

Ohio has plenty of good sportsmen, rhoown the best dogs in tbeeoantry.
at least so they say. Still, Ohio sportsmen hesitate to organize a fieid trial
Formerly sportsmen used to kill
prairie chickens and quail with BBand
..'o. 1 shot respectively, now many use No. 10 and dust shot fqr tbe same pur
Plenty of quails have been left over for seed for next season, and if the winter is favorable to them next year's qnail crop will be as large as ever in this State.
Jabez Miller, the trap-shooter, will sever bis connection with tbe Peters Cartridge Company, of this city, aftet the Inst of tbis montn, bnt the company will continue business.
Most practical sportsmen have abandoned the heavy ten-gange gup and heavy loads for field shooting, and are using a light twelve-gauge, loaded vi^ith half tbe ammunition formerly used.
General W. B, Shattuc, C. W. Paris, Jacob Moerlein, John Law, John Sherlock, Jack W. Harries and many other prominent sporuraeu of tbis city, who are all interested in hunting dogs,.ought to push tbe organizatlon of an Ohio State Field Trial Club.
Now that tbe quail season bas closed

eye on those pot-hunters who 'prowl
about the fields ostensibly in quest rabbits, but who in reality are waicblng for a chance to pour a load of shot Into a euvey of quail huddling on the gronnd.
Sportsmen who seek recreation Ih trap shooting are oomplainlng that tbe pur-ooee for which gun clubs were formed Las been perverted, and that tbe good fellowship and friendly spirit which formerly exieted among the members of the various clubs of this city, has been greatly impaired by a oliqne of gun-sbarks, who under tbe pretense of being genuine sportsmen have Invaded the clubs, snd by their nsfarions praoiloes
have tnrned them into gambling| Instl-in
tutions, thereby deatroying tbe delight
ful eport of trap shooting and preventing the decent sporteman from pgrttd-
