    The reasoning of these Esquimaux, however, seemed of a different nature, and of a more "liberal" character: it has often been used in far other lands, and lias been considerably acceptable to the multitude, before the days of Wat Tyler and since; as it is a rule of action for Dim who pilfers a book from a library or a rare shell from a cabinet.   For more than a century and a half, mystery has shrouded the Franklin Expedition, a doomed attempt to find the fabled Northwest Passage.
