A VISIT TO THE S. W. REEFS AND NORTH
On December 31st the novel spectacle of two of
the principal coast defences of these Islands, the
Viper and Vixen, armoured gun-vessels, proceeding
towards the reefs, was witnessed by the inhabitants
of the western port ion of Bermuda.
His Excellency the Governor, Major General Sir
R. M. Laffan, K.C.M.G., R.E., as the guest of Ad.
miral Sir E. Inglefield, K.C.B., F.R.S., accompa-
nied by their respective staffs, embarked on board
the Viper, where they were received by Captain J.
Moresby, Captain-in-Charge, off Clarence Cove,
and the vessels then proceeded-the Viper, in charge
of Staff Commander Scobell-Clapp, Master Attend-
ant of the Dockyard, and Vizen, in charge of Lieut.
Ellis, of H. M. S. Terror-towards Commissioner's
Point, and rounding which they steered for the
Channel towards Chub Cut. The sea being very:
smooth and there being no wind, the native pilots
had a difficult task to perform, but, aided by the
steam launch of H. M. S. Bellerophon, they safely
passed all the dangerous coral' heads and through
Chub Cut to sea. After luncheon had been par.,
taken of the vessels shaped a course for North Rock,
and the men were exercised at general quarters,
firing shot and shell. The battering charges must

of the power of the weapons composing their "ar-

DR. NELSON'S LECTURE ON LONDQN.
On Thursday last Dr. Nelson delivered his se-
cond lecture to a good audience, considering the
threatening aspect of the weather, at the Mechan .
ice' Hall, in this town. The arrangements were a
decided improvement on his first lecture. The au-.
dience would much like if the Dr. could face them-
especially the fair portion-provided he could se-
cure efficient assistance in working the slides. It
would add so much to the interest of the occasion
to see the lecturer animated with his subject, and
riveting the attention of the audience by delicately
manipulating a painter in drawing attention to the
moving scene. Perhaps in this way he may be able
to accompany his excursionists down -the Rhine
were fable has enriched every spot, the subject of
his next lecture. A trip to the Rhine is one of the
favourite European Excursions and don't fail to on.
joy it on canvass.
Pekin not excepted, London, however regarded,
is the most remarkable spot under the Sun. Nelson
unfolded Isome of its avenues and afforded a pass.
ing glimpse of its life. A friend was once asked if
he did not lihe in Liverpool, he replied that he was
staying there, and significantly added "I exist in
Liverpool, but I live in London"-And though, in
the langurge of our American Cousins, the remark
was rather severe" yet it expresses .in a measure
the pre-eminence of the Metropolis. It is estimated
that some half million of people enter London every
day. The passenger traffic on the underground
railway foots up some sixty millions of tickets an.
nually! The London Railways are the marvel of all
foreigners, and yet all that an Englishman -has to
say of them is something crusty at times if every-
thing is not up to the mark. Crowds of strangers
are daily to be seen in the great buildings and
thoroughfares drinking in the complete novelty. A
German friend once said to us, you English people
are a melancholy set. \When a stranger comes to
London, you hurry him into the gloom of St. Paul's
tombstones and monuments without number, and
you finish up by descending into the Crypt to see'
the resting place of the great Wellington. Then
you hurry him on to the Abbey of Westminster and
treat him to a similar repast, and so on you.go as if
you were hinged to a buried past from which you
cannot extricate yourselves,

Berlin is supposed to foreshadow Important changes
in Russian policy. A statement has appeared to
the effect that the attention of the Czarewitch was
called, during'his visit at the Austrian Court, tft
the alleged activity of Russian agents In Turk
and that the Russian Heir Apparent entirely 6.
claimed any responsibility for such proceedings.
Assurances of this sort, however valuable as proof
of a friendly spirit, can be of little practical service
if a difficulty should arise which might bring Rus-
sia into conflict with the other Great Powers. But
if the Czar and the chief members of bis family
are sincerely desirous to prove, as the promises and
excuses of the Czarwitch would seem to show,
that Russia is no longer bent on disturbing the
affairs of the East, it cannot be difficult to modify
the policy of the Empire, or even to change ita
governing politicians, so that the outer world may
clearly understand the fact.

Dynamite Is decidedly a desirable motive power.
As a factor in trade disputes, however, its arbitra-
ment is apt to be inconvenient. A party of miners
In Putnam county, in the State of New York, held
possession of a coal and iron mine alter the ex-
piratlon of the lease. The lessor found them
troublesome tenants. He dare not go near the mine,
as his presence was greeted with a very hostile dis.
play of dynamite. He sought the aid of a Court
which gave him the protection of a squad of military.
Proceeding to the pit in the company of bis armed
force he demanded thesurrenderof the mine. The
occupiers replied by inviting his merry men to come
and take what they sought for by means of powder
and shot. The troops accepted the challenge, and
began to descend the mine by the main shaft.
They were met by a blast of dynamite from the
bottom of the pit. The Debris fell in terrible
showers, and promised to overwhelm the party.
Nothing daunted, however, the troopers continued
to descend. Another blast of dynamite met them,
and it was feared they bad succumbed to the shock.
The frail ladder was heard to snap, and the sides
of the shaft began to fall in with a rumbling noise.
The men were bruised and considerably damaged
bythe flying splintersof rock but they still continued
to go down Into the yawning abyss. The officer In
command of the party had nearly accomplished the
descent, when he received one of the miners with
Sfuse in hand, ready to fix it to a final charge.
He covered the fellow with his rifle, and coolly de-
manded him "not to fire that fuse, but surrender."
Not wishing to sacrifice his own life, the miner
retreated. The officer set loot in the mine, and was
quickly followed by his men, who cleared the pit at
the bayonet point, and sent the miners tu the sur-
face, bound hand and foot, as plisoneis of the law,
and witnesses of the courage of the officer who had
been cool enough to say a firm word at a critical

I IRELAND ISLAND, 9th Jany., 1880.
Sm,-In your last issue I observe that the au-
thenticity of my report on the proceedings at the
Tea and E i rtai- r. rt -iv n by Providence Loyal
Lodge No 1, i.- ,.tled in question.
Without going into the matter of the legality of
either Lodge to their titles, or discussing the princi-
ples they profess, either party being equally deter-
mined as the other in upholding their theories and
arguments on which, here as elsewhere, have been
worn threadbare ere this; allow me to state, in re-
gard to the question raised by the reporter of Pro-
vidence Lodge No. '3, which appears in a postscript
that although the absence of certain members from
this meeting may have beev, observed, yet, that
these were the persons who responded to the toast
of "The Representatives of Naval Excelsior and
Rising Star Lodges," or that these did not respond
must remain (as far asoral and ocular proof goes)
unknown to your correspondent. I must say that
he-has very little ground upon which to give me
the lie, and, not to use too strong language he cer-
tainly-either unintentionally or otherwise-does
not speak the truth; as, being the person request-
ed to take notes for the purpose of reporting the
S fi-ro,:c: -i'u- I can vouch for the toast being given
-u-id reil p :'-. tovivavoce.
With reference to Col. J. J. Hickman, it is not
my office to reply further than to state, that per.
haps the Deputy of this gentleman-Mr. J. L.
Ward, Somerset-will answer any enquiries address-
ed to him as to how, and in what service, his chief
came by his title; however, this is the first time I
have heard this question raised, and I have yet to
learn that the Order of Good Templars places any
bar to its Members carrying out the mandates of
the State, or that duty which any individual be-
lieves to be his.
I may remark that I am not responsible for that
which I report further than when such is improper-
ly or inaccurately done, the imputation of the latter
to me having called forth this retort.
Excuse me for having thus far trespassed upon
I remain, your obedient-servant,
ALFONSO OF SPAIN ONCE MORE ESCAPES
TH E BULLET:
LONDoN, DEC. 30.-Madrid was electrified this
evening by the news of another attempt to assassi-
nate the King. It wvas made as he was taking
his evening drive to the Prado with Queen Chris-
tine. He sLad been occupied during the day in
consultations with the Ministers. Senor Canovas
del Castillo. the Premier, had called at the Palace
and had been closeted with his Majesty. At five
o'clock i tl King ordered his carriage. It was an
open landau, drawn by two horses, with two foot-
men behind. Queen Christine quickly passed
through the file cf servarts on the palace steps and
stepped lightly into the carriage. She was dressed
with rich -*m;t'*ei.r'. Her face was unusually gay
and happy. Alfonso followed her, grasped the
reins and at once started for the Salon. The royal
palace stands in the Plaza del Oriente, facing a
semicircle of splendid buildings, where most of the
diplomatic corps are quartered. In the centre of
the plaza is a glorieta (garden), raised somewhat
above the level of the plazi and filled with fruit
and flowers. All around it is a broad walk, bor-
dered by trees and terminated by forty-four colossal
statues,i-., 1 ,- ..i:a. the monarchs of Spain.
At the -P aedsa-et---i -
l---rlved atthe_-paaee gate a young man was seen to
advance from the glorieta. An instant later a re-
port was heard. The young Queen felt something
whizz by her cheek. The King started to his feet.
Then it was seen that a shot had been fired, and.
the young man, who was little more than a boy,
was seized by the royal footmen, the police and the
*bystanders. The King showed himself as cool as
when his life was attempted in the Calle Mayor
last year. The Queen was much distressed, but
she made a brave effort to hide her emotion. The
ball, which had flattened against the palace gate,
was picked up on the pavement. It weighed an
ounce. The arrested youth said that his name was
Gonzales, tnd his age nineteen. He is a waiter by
profession, and a native of Galicia. It is believed
he had accomplices, and three person have been
arrested on suspicion. He has been living in Ma-
drid for some time. The Diario Espanol says:-
.'Two shots were fired at the royal carriage, the
second passing quite close to the Queen's face.
The weapon used was a double '-,vr'Ilei pistol.
The diplomatic body have gone to the Palace to
eln, ra.iril te their ".iii.ti5. upon their escape."
*The- 'tt'.-i.: excites 2-"er:il indignation at Madrid.
The King attended the Opera to-night, and as-
he stood up in the royal box was received'with
much enthusiasm. At the close of the performance
ao enthusiastic crowd bearing torches accompanied
the royal carriage to the palace.

DISTRESS IN TURKS' ISLAND.
The schooner Silver Heels arrived at this port
yesterday from Sainana Bay, St. Domingo. In
conversation with a Herald reporter Mr. Benjamin
F. Clark, one of her passengers, related the follow-
ing:-" We touched at Grand Turk, Turks' Island,
on December 19, and almost, upon our arrival came
the steamship St. D)omingo, loaded with prisoners.
The long delay in the arrival of this ship caused by
the late revolution in St. Domingo had reduced the
inhabitants of Turks' and the neighboring islands
to absolute distress. This distress was general
and not .confined to the lower classes alone,
for the wealthy residents were compelled to forego
their luxuries. 'T he arrival of this vessel was then
most opportune and hailed with joyous delight by
the entire suffering community. The revolution in
the Dominican Republic began under the direction
of the provisional government, formed at Puerta
Plat.a in October lasi, which had been triumphant at
all points, but tranquility is now restored."
Ex-President Cuesareo Guillermo embarked at St.
Domingo City for Porto Rico previous to the 12th
iust. Mr. Clark fourth r stated that General Lupe-
ron, chairman of Lhe provi ional government, would
doubtless be elected President of. the Dominican
government, though a strong diversion is expected
in favor of Valverde.

PROFESSOR BACKIE ON SCOTCHIMEN.
Professor Blackie presided, on Saturday, at the
annual dinner of the St. Andrew's Society in Man-
chester. In proposing the toast of the evening the
Professor.said the world was governed by names and
if there was a new start to be made or new spirit to
be infused it was proper that there should be a new
name, and of all the names in the world he could
not conceive of one more respectable than the'name
of St. Andrew. (Cheers.) St. Andrew was both a
Jew and a Greek, and in choosing St. Andrew as
their saint they had, as it were, combined the Jew
Beaconsfield with the Greek Gladstone--(loud
laughter and cheers)-for that Lord Beaconsfield
was a Jew could not be disputed, and that Gladstone
was a Greek was perfectly plain both from his
versatility and also from the subtleness of his in-
tellect and the suppleness of his tongue. (Renewed
cheers and laughter.) With regard to the preser-
vation of national traditions, he gloried in nation-
ality. He did not do so from an obtrusive desire
to push his thistle prickles into people of other na-
tions. God had created the world upon the princi-
ple of variety. It was not overridden by one type
of man, but everywhere in the various centres there
were various types. And if God had made this
great variety of races, he held that it/would be ri-
diculous to attempt to reduce all to one pattern.
Some people said, Why should you wish to keep
up your nationality ? Are we not all one people ?"
Well," he replied, "' why should you wish to
swallow us all up ? If we were John Bull and you
were Sandy, would you not object to be swallowed
up by us; and do you think that because a mastiff
or a St. Bernard dog is a very big dogthat therefore
Skye terriers have no place -in the world at all?"
(Cheers and laughter.) There might be some, and
he did not blame them, who wished that God had
created all mankind in the image of John Bull, but
he rather blamed the Scotchman, the sneak and the
snob, who after spending a few years in England,
was ashamed of his nationality. (Hear, hear.) He
thought the Scotchman was a hardy and hard-
working animal. If, therefore, he was superior
to the Englishman in point of work, but inferior to
him in point of polish, he bad no objection to that.
The Englishman was certainly more elegant, more
polished, and more aristocratic, lbut he was also a
more exclusive and a more conceited animal. He
also stood up for the Scot as a shrewd, sagacious,
and thoughtful animal. In that view the Times
supported him, for it said some years ago
the English Universities produce learning,
but the Scotch Universities produce thought."
With reference to Sabbath observances, he would
not object to a theatre on Sunday, if it were pro-
perly managed and consecrated by the Church, for
he did not see why they should not have plays more
effective than sermons. He announced, in conclu-
sion, that 13,000 had already been raised towards
establishing a Celtic chair at the Edinburgh Uni-

AN IMPROVED STEAMSHIP.
We (North British Daily lfail) had the please
of inspecting at the office of Messrs. Boustead &
Dunbar, Dixon Street, Glasgow, the finished model
of a unique and very remarkable screw steamer
about to be built on the Clyde for the Compagnie
de Navigation Economique (Limited) of Glasgow
and Paris. This'vessel will have no funnel of any
kind, burning her own smoke, and her four masts
will be placed in pairs on the gunwale on projecting
brackets to keep them clear of the rails, boats, da-
vits, &c., when folded down, this being done when
the vessel is going head to wind, so as to lessen the
resistance offered by the masts, spars, sails, &c
On each mast will be placed a large boom and gaff and
between the mast will be placed a large square sail and
topsail running on jack-stays. The total width of
sail set on each pair of masts when running before
the wind will be 147 feet in width and 127 feet in
height. The effective hor-seo power will be 1500,
so as to give the vessel a high rate of speed, and the
fuel required will be only one half that of an ordi-
nary compound marine engine. This result is ob-
tained by superheating the water in the boiler by
the introduction of a substance which need not be
named, and which substance is variable according
to circumstances. The space occupied by the
boilers, engines and. coal bunkers will only be one
half that of an ordinary steamer of the same power.
By this arrangement the steam pipes, &0., will by
only about one-fourth the size of those of an ordinar-
steamer. Mechanical ventilation is to be substitute
ted for the present funnel system, because it is pos-
sible to thoroughly exhaust the heat and burn all
gases. Instead, therefore, of a thick black smoke
issuing from the funnel, with burnt air at a tempe-
rature of 500 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit, it will be
drawn off by the aid of the appliances connected
with the new system at a temperature of 150 to 175
degrees, and this of itself is no mean result; besides
. owing to the change in the boilers, the i,'eS.-. sys-
tem of firing will be entirely superseded, and an im-
provement introduced by which the overpowering
fatigue endured by stokers in hot latitudes will be
wholly done away with. The engines, boilers, masts,
&c., are the invention of Charles Tellier, Esqr., of
Paris, engineer. The model and lines were designed
of Mr. Hercules Linton, marine architect, of this
city, and are a modification of the lines of the cele-
lebrated China clipper Cutty Sarkbuilt by the same
gentlemen. The vessel is to be'constructed for
great speed, having very fine lines and a good rise of
floor. Her extreme dimensions are :-Length, 285'
feet; beam 35 feet, depth, 24 feet. As she is intend-
ed for long voyages, the screw is to be constructed
on a new plan, so that it may be raised out of the
water when the vessel is under sail. To show fully
the working of the new arrangement of masts and
-sails, a full model of large size (nearly thi'een feet
long) has been made, with all the appfliaes for lift-
ing and lowering the masts, and showing the pew
disposition of the rigging, &c. The deckhouses are
constructed so as to offer as little resistance as pos-
sible to the wind. The cabins are to be fitted up
handsomely, and will be slightly different from ordin-
ary steamers, being mostly of an octagonal form,
with the angles relieved by mirrors, &c. The ves.
sel is to be immediately proceeded with, after it has
been determined whether she is to be built of steel
or iron. On completion of the hull, the engines and
boilers will be brought from Havre, where they are
being made, after which she will proceed on her
trial trip a long distance seaward, with a select party
of scientific and nautical men on board, to test the
economy of the new system.

TRANSMISSIBILITY OF HYDROPHOBLA.-It has
been an obscure p.oiut hitherto whether human
rabies is transmissibl> by inoculation to lower ani-
mals and to men. With much voatradtietou, there
bhas een little scientifle :.bbervat.ii:.ni (,i facts We
lately recorded M. Galtier'a interesting hbservationj,

and the sbeorrnees at tbn period iit incub.tti..u in the
rabbit'r(rendering it a ni-eful re-a-e2t I was remarked
on. M. Raynaud bhia re,'eutly take an .opportunity of
ascertaining the eflect of i.::culti.n .:,1 the rabbit
from man in the hy.r.:.phob. st',:-. A man in that

quite safe till some of the usual hydrophobi s- ep'-
toms appeared. The day before his death, Tiih t'quier
interval, he yielded himself, virh the best grace, to
the experiments in inoculation which were made
with his blood apd his saliva. The result of ino-
culating the rabbit with the blood was negative (as
in the great majority of previous cases of inocula-
tion with blood of animals under rabies). Bit with
the saliva it was otherwise. A rabbit inoculated in
the ear and abdomen on October 11ll began to
show symptoms of rabies on the 15th, bein1 much
excited and damaging the walls ot its -1g:e 'vtile it
uttered loud cries and slavered at the mouth. Then
it fell into collapse and died the f..l., iig nirht The
rabbit's body (it so happened) was not dissected till
thirty-six hours after death, and further experiment
was made by taking fragments of the right and left
sub-maxilliary glands and iii,,,,:.',.: them udi.er
the skin of two other rabbits respectively. The e
two rapidly sceumbed, one on the fifth, the other on
the sixth day (becoming visibly ill on the third).
neither passed through a furious stage, b.h-Ierei,
and the predominant feature was *-r:,1'e.-.ea (a t'w
of paralysis). The important practical result is that
'human saliva, such as caused rabies in 'h rabbit, i
necessarily virulent and would probably hare e..r-
responding effects on man; so that-it should be iJelt
with cautiously, and that not. only during the life of
the person furnishing it, but in post mortem exam-
