The New York Mail Steamer "Bermuda," due
yesterday, was not signalled at either of the Sta-

she was to be docked for the purpose of being

to empower the Governor to appoint Com-
missioners to take, and to record such
evidence as may be obtainable, and fully
to enquire into and report upon the cir-
cumstances connected with the loss of that
vessel-but without having power to sus-
pend the Certificates of the Master or
others concerned, or to order that the ex-
penses of the enquiry or any portion there-
of should be, paid by the master or other
officers, or by the owners or agents of the
ship, as it does .not seem expedient to
attach penal consequences to any Acts by
retrospective legislation. The second Bill,
intended to revive the provisions of the Act
No. 18 of 1864 as amended in 1878, will
propose some important improvements, two
of 'which, suggested by the Secretary of
State for the Colonies, merit your special
attention: the first proposing to extend the
liability of ships to meet the expenses of
marine enquiries beyond the narrow limit
of 20, to which it has been restricted
by the Act 18 of 1864-and the second
proposing to allow a reasonable scale of
remuneration for detention to witnesses
who may necessarily be detained in these
Islands for the purpose of giving evidence
before Courts of Marine Enquiry. These
suggestions seem so reasonable that I have
no doubt they will at once commend them-
selves to your app..ival.
These two Bills are the only measures
which I contemplate at present having to
lay before you for your consideration dur-
ing the present Session. I trust you will
,be able to pass them both with very little
delay and that I may thus be enabled very
e -a

soon to release you for a lengthened pe-
riod from further attendance upon Parlia-
ment, and enable you to devote your ener-
gies to those agricultural and commercial
pursuits which tend so materially to pr6-
mote the prosperity of yourselves and your

ES, R.A.
Major Bridges, who has been in ill-health for
some time past died at St. George's on Thursday, and
was buried on Friday afternoon with full military
honors. About 1-30 the various military commands
met at his late residence, and after forming, proceed-
ed to the Military Cemetery in the following order.
First a firing party of one hundred and fifty men
of the Royal Artillery, next the Band of the 46th
Regiment, followed by a gun carriage with limber
attached drawn by two large and handsome jet
black horses, harnessed tandem fashion and led by
two men of the 46th Regiment. The coffin was
placed over the gun in the usual manner, covered
by a Union Jack, on it rested the sword, hat and
belt of the deceased, followed by the 46th Regt.,
Army Hospital Corps, Commissariat Staff Corps,
and Army Service Corps, next a detachment of the
Royal Engineers followed by Non-Commissioned
Officers and the Officers of the Garrison, arranged
according to seniority, embracing all the various
corps and departments, Col. Oliver Stokes, R.A.,
the Commandant, being last. As the mournful
cortege filed its way over the hilly roads the effect
was very impressive and intensified by the perfect
rendering of the "Dead March in Saul." Away
to the left were many hills covered with the ever-
green cedars for which Bermuda is so noted, the
white roadway underfoot sounding with the mea-
sured ramp of men-the rich and varied uniforms
and white helmets, on the right the Atlantic
stretching away to the horizon, all combined to
make a lasting impression. On arrival at the
Cemetery the solemn burial service of the Church
of England was read by the Garrison Chaplain,
the Rev. Mr. Gregson. The Cemetery is some-
what irregular in form surrounded by stone walls,
and rests on an incline, having the hills for a back-'
ground and the sea in front. Standing on a slight
elevation and looking downward; within the enclo-
sure, was seen the firing party of the Royal Artil-
lery in two lines, with their backs to the wall on the
right, the lines extending to the lower part of-the
Cemetery. All within except the latter were un-
covered and massed in corps as they marched in,
Officers in front near the grave. At the conclusion
of the service, three volleys were fired, each volley
was followed by a few mournful strains of music.
The last rites having been paid to the remains
of the deceased Mrs. Bridge's left'the Cemetery
leaning on the arm of her son. Major Bridges
leaves a large family. The troops left in the fol-
lowing order in fours-the Band, that was halted
to the right, followed by the 46th, about 250 of
whom were present; then Detachments of the Army
Hospital Corps, Army Service Corps, and Com-
missariat Staff Corps, 100 men of the Royal En-
gineers, and the firing party of 150 of the Royal
Artillery-followed by the Officers 'and Colonel
Stokes. A very large concourse of civilians was
also present on the surrounding hills and roads.
The Band marched off last and the sad scene closed.

H. M. S. Bellerophon, bearing the Flag of Ad-
miral Sir Edward A. Inglefield,K.C.B., F.R.S.,Cap-
tain St. George C. D'Arcy Irvine, left on Tuesday
morning last for England. Just previous to the
Bellerophon leaving the channel at the East End
the Admiral's Flag was saluted by the Battery on
the glacis at Fort Albert, which was returned by
the Ship.
The Bellerophon has been on this station for up.
wards of six years and has, during that time, borne
the Flag of three several Admirals, namely, those
of Vice Admiral G. G. Wellesley, Vice Admiral
Sir A. Cooper Key, and Admiral Sir E. A. Ingle.

the Bellerophon and arrived here on the 18th De-
cember, 1873, and Admiral Sir E. A. Inglefield left
in the B. for England on the 13th instant.

Vice-Admiral Sir Leopold M'Clintock, Kt.,
F.R.S., &c., &c., &c., in his Flagship the North-
ampton, Captain Fisher, leaves to-day on his first
visit to the West India portion of his extensive
command, apd expects to return to Bermuda about
the middle of March.

Paymaster Henley, of Northampton, was invalided
on the 12th instant. Paymaster E. W1. Whyte,
transerred from Blanche to Northampton, vice Henl.
ley, and Assist. Paymaster Dawson from Bellerot
phon to Blanche, as acting Paymaster vice Whyte.
H. M. S. Plover, Commander Stewart, left yes-
terday for Jamaica.

This match, under Rugby Union Rules, came off
on Saturday the 10th on the Prospect Ground and
resulted in rather an easy victory for the Army by
one goal and three tries to nothing. The day
being fine there was a good sprinkling of specta-
tors, among whom we were glad to see the fair sex
well represented. Lt. Carden kicked off for the
Army at 3'30 and it was soon apparent that they
were the heavier team, the Navy backs, who played
well throughout, having their work cut out to stop
the determined rushes of Fearon, Morris, Carden
and others. The passing and backing up of the
Army was especially good and it was chiefly owinrg
to the excellent back play of Poore and McKins-
try that they did not get more goals. The tries
were obtained by Handcock, Carden and Morrison
(2) from one of which Carden kicked a very
neat goal. Abdy, Williamson and Egerton showed
up prominently for the Navy and for the Army
besides those mentioned Phayre and Kennedy (be-
hind) and Harvey were perhaps the most notice-
able. The following were the teams :--

On Tuesday last a Children's fancy dress dance
took place at Mount Langton. The invitations
for dancing from 4-30 to 9 o'clock were sent. out
in the names of two little ones with whom we are
well acquainted, and it was with great pleasure that
I availed myself of mine, though I merely went as
a spectator being, as the children would say, two
staid and elderly for a fancy costume.
The dancing had begun when I reached the hos-
pitable doors of Mount Langt.-,n. so I slipped quiet-
ly into a corner after having paid my respects to
the Lady of the house, who, on this occasion, was
the old wofnan who lived in a shoe; a very appro-
priate dress, considering the number of young peo-
ple around her-but she looked so kind that I don't
think they feared the whipping .all round and
sending to bed."
Rarely have I seen such a pretty sight as I there
beheld. The ball-room was tastefully decorated
with many wreaths and flowers, and plentifully
lighted up with candles at the side and with Chinese
lanterns which hung from the ceiling Little folks
and children of a larger growth too in all kinds of
brilliant and pretty costumes, were gliding round
on the slippery floor to the strains of a portion of
the 19th Regiment's band. I was at first too much
dazzled by the moving mass of colour and bright-
ness to distinguish separate dresses,, and after the
waltz, when the room was deserted in the interval,
I walked across to the French window where I saw
as pretty a scene as in the ball-room. The large
verandah was entirely enclosed with gay flags and
the Chinese lanterns hung from the ceiling gave a
soft subdued light. At one end were the refresh-
ment tables, which made me wish I was a hun.
gry child, and all along the verandah the cou-
ples were sitting or walking in conversation. When
I re-entered and took my station to watch the next
dance I was able to take note of the costumes which
were very pretty -and which made a prettier coup
d'ceil from their clothing dancers of all sizes from
little tots of three and four to sons of Mars and
Neptune. Conspicuous among the figures were
those of a tall Beefeater, who no doubt had plenty
to do in sustaining order, and-of a merry Court-fool,
who amused the little folks (and big ones too) not
a little with his antics. But the most amusing of
all was, I think, Mrs. Sarah Gamp, who actually,
notwithstanding her time of life, had come out to.
tea" and condescended to dance and amuse herself
very well with the young gentlemen, tho.ih she was
sometimes shocked with their forwardness and at-
tributed it to the degeneracy of modern times. I
entered into some conversation with the dear old
lady whose bonnet and umbrella I particularly ad-
mired, and who had plenty to say for herself. Her
love for tea was astonishing, but curiously enough
she particular requested it should be her
cold, and she much preferred it in wine.glasses. How.
ever we all of us have our little peculiarities and
that I suppose is her own speciality. The way she
flirted with the young gentlemen between the
dances was'very shocking and her chaperone,.if she
ever'had one when she was young, must have had
a hard time of it. They do say that she cut off one
curl and gave it as a keepsake to one of her part-
ners that afternoon. Her gloves were also missing-
at the end of the evening, and as the dear old crea-
ture had probably forty winks in the course of the
afternoon we may take a good guess to as to what
happened to them.
In-the middle of the entertainment I was not a
little surprised to see a cloaked figure with a lion's
head, walking about the room, amusing some and
half frightening others.-On' his being presented to
Mrs. Gamp the good old soul fainted away, and had
to be brought to with some snuff, after which she
had a violent fit of sneezing.
I cannot close my account without a word on the
children's dancing which was admirable, thanks to
the trouble which a gentleman has of late so very
kindly taken in teaching them, and I think Mr.
Hurd cannot be too much complimented on the
success of his undertaking, which has resulted in
such a perfect set of juvenile dancers.
Subjoined is a list of the costumes as complete as
I have been able to procure.

1' A Special Meeting of the Synod was convened I
on Thih'.l-Jy last to consider the advisability of
iii-rsentilnu. an address to the Bishop shortly after'
lis arrive l in Bermuda, which is expected to be
during the present week.
The number of Clergy and Lay Representatives
required by law to form a quorum not having as-
sembled the meeting was adjourned to this day
(Tuesday) at 11 o'clock, a.m., for the same purpose.

Dr. Nelson's Views of Ireland, on Tuesday last
were considered, by those who have attended the
whole course, the most successful he has yet ex-
hibited. The Dr. curtailed his discriptive matter
too much. Not.every one can agree with him on
the merits of Irish Whiskey. Those who relish
peet reek" flavour of course will--but Lorne"
will usually be preferred to L.L.
The last Lecture of the present course underthe
Patronage of His Excellency-will be given in the
Mechanics' Hall, on this Tuesday Evening, when
the "Rhine, its scenery and Castles," will be the
subject. -Dr. Nelson's Lecture on "London," in
St. George's, on Wednesday evening last, filled the
Hall of the Young Men's Christian Association.
Probably two lectures will be delivered in Hamilton
to children at a reduced rate of admission.

ST. GEonRG's, Jan. 12th, 1880.
DflA MR. EDITOR,--Allow me room for a few
lines in your valuable paper, relative to the Town
of St. George's, and which I think would be inter-
esting to your readers; although Ihave been living
. bt a short time in this district, I have found the
people very hospitable, which tends to make one
form an attachment. It is most unusually dull
here for this time of the year, as the winter being
mild, there haa been no harvest of Lame Ducks,
which makes a big difference when they manage to
look in these waters; although they are commencing I
to come, as we have three lame ones in this week
which makes the Harbor look up a little. The
Town of St. George's has some pretty spots about
it which takes the eyes of strangers, Market Square
being the centre, where business people and strang-
ers generally collect and discuss matters. A fine
Town Clock, which has been running over 80 years.
On Sunday and Holidays, a beautiful flagis display-
ed ; their Prfblic Park is kept in splendid order, it is
not as large as that of Hamilton, but it is to be en-
larged shortly. I think they might have few seats
for weary visitors. The Young Men's Christian
Association has a fine building, quite an ornament
to the Town and is a Public benefit, especially to
our Young ladies and gentlemen, as it is conducted
under strict discipline; is furnished with a Library
of instructive books, and newspaper from all parts of
the world giving the latest news. It has three
large tables with comfortable seats and is lit up at
night by a large chandelier. The rooms are open
from early in the morning until 10 in the evening.
The lower story is used as a School Room. I wish
I could induce the Hamiltonians to get up such an
Association, it would be a great advantage to youths
of the community. I must say the buildings here
are rather neglected and allowed to go to ruin. The
streets are very narrow and running in every dir-
ection, no uniformity about them and in most
places not kept very clean. I think the Board of
Health would do good to look around or to visit th'im
once a month. I understand the Board of Health
goes round to-morrow, for I saw a man yesterday
very busy cleaning up his back yard, and I am sure
it needed it, and he informed me that he was get-
ting ready for to-morrow. I thought a monthly
cleaning would do his premises no harm. We are
very badly off here for good roads and streets, as
there is only one you can drive on in safety, that
leads from the centre of the Town out to the Cause-
way, and is a pretty drive; there is another road
leading- from the Town Hall down to the Town
Cut, and passes up the North Shore giving a
splendid view of the ocean and bays, and passing
close to the forts and barracks. It is, I think, one
of the prettiest drives in Bermuda, but it is not
safe to drive on now, as the road is and has
been for weeks very much obstructed by cart loads
of stone being dumped in the middle of it. I noticed
one very large hole in one place seemingly
leading to some hollow places underneath, and in
the night one walking could soon loose the number
of his mess if he came in contact. I think our Co-
lonial Surveyor deserves great credit for the roads
throughout the Islands, as they never were in bet-
ter order than at present, and I think a visit from
him in this direction would improve the looks of
things very much .indeed, and at a little ex-
pense. I think the St. Georgians would return
many thanks, and it would be very attractive for
strangers visiting St. George's. Trusting that our
Colonial Surveyor will not forget us.

Cabul stands on the southern side of the Cab'li
River, in the midst of a large plain. Rocky ranges
of gneissic formation, running from northwest to
southwest, overshadow it. It has some 60,000
inhabitants of all religions and races. The thorough.
fares in the city are intricate and narrow, and as
the town is divided into quarters, which are sub-
divided into sections by walls and gates, it would
be a most favorable scene for street fighting were
the Afghans at all well handled. On the southern
range stands te ans Balla-Hissar, which from its em-
inence of 150 feet commands the city. The fortifi-
cation is a mile and a quarter in circumference, and
has walls (in some places double and triple) of stone
brick and-more generally-mud. There is a large
open space in the centre, where stands the royal
palace and treasury. In the lower part (the Bala-
Hissar Pabin) are about a thousand houses. In
the year 1841 the British occupied a cantonment a
mile and a half to the north, on a site now covered
with fields of grain. The road to this point passes
out from the Kohistan gate and leads towards the
mountains. By its side stands Sherpur, an enor-
mous line of barracks begun by the late Ameer,
whose design was to form a huge fortified enclosure
having the Bebmaru hills for one side. The line
of buildings parallel with the hil!s has been com-
pleted. It is about a mile in length, a series of
small rooms built against a high, thick mud wall,
having an arched verandah running along the front.
It is here that the English troops are quartered.
The hill range on the north is the Koh Assa Mahi
or Hill of the Great Mother (Nature.) The Cabul
River passes a gorge formed by these two hill ranges
on the west and flows through the -city, the walls
and towers of defence of their two systems coming

down at the gorge to join to a fortified bridge-the
bridge of Jehan Khan. When the river passes out
from the eastern wall of the city, a canal (Korad
Khani) begins and runs parallel with it. Close to
the westward are the Bebmarn heights and on the
eastern side of the river the Siah Sungh heights,

At Sydney N.S.W. the Parliament opened on the
28th of October. The Act amending the Service Bill,
granting the wife the same privileges as the hus-
band, which has been twice refused Royal assent,
has again passed the Assembly and been transmit-
ted to the Council.
Her Majesty's ship Danal has retuned from a
cruise to the 6olomon and other South Sea Islands.
At Maru Island, where an Englishman was mass-
acred in April last, a company oT small-arm men
I mded and c(troyed the villages and canoes of the
tfIenders. In the encounter with the natives one
was killed and two were wounded.

The effective use recently made of the heliograph
by General Roberts in his Afghan campaign shows
the great value of the instrument in the hands of a
skilful commander. Signalling by means of reflect-
ed light is not a novelty, but its application to
military movements is but just coming to be realized
in the English army. "There is no doubt," said
the London Times, after the fearful disaster at Isan-
dula, South Africa, that had visual signaling, either
by the heliograph or by flags, been adopted in South
Africa, the disaster of January 22 would not have
occurred." The conflict of that day between a
detachment of the British army with an enemy seven
times its superior in numbers would not have been
so unequal had Lord Chelmsford, whose army lay
within twenty miles of the massacre, been in helio-
graphic communication with this detachment.
The heliograph is an apparatus for telegraphing
by means of the sun's rays. It is composed of a
circular mirror, revolving on a horizontal axis. By
means of adjusting screws the rays of the sun can be
made to fall on any desired point of the mirror,
which can be worked by the operator so that the
flash shall be of any length, varied or grouped to
represent letters or words composing messages.
The range is very great and its signals intelligible
without a glass to the distance of fifty miles Gen-
eral Roberts. before taking his present position, es-
fablished a heliograph station at Khost, and thence
flashed signals back to the fort at Baunee, a distance
of sixty miles. This officer, it is said, has for some
time been urging the more general adoption of the
heliograph in the British army, and now, in his pe-
rilous, beleaguered position, finds it an invaluable
aid in procuring timely suceor.
The instrument has, in some form, been long
in use for military, naN al and surveying purposes,
but its applications are doubtless capable of in-
crease There seems to be no reason why it
might not be more extensively introduced and
effectively used for meteorological and storm-warn-
ing purposes, especially in the mountainous portions
and valleys of the trans-Mississippi States and
Territories and on the lakes, than for operations
merely military between points not connected by
telegraph wires. In the clear, transparent air of
the Western plateau and the adjacent high regions,
mirror telegraphy'could apparently be employed
with the best effect.--New York Herald.

TO DEFRAUD THE PUBLIC. Material or argo
Washington, Dec. 30.--The argument in the ease
of the Louisiana Lottery Company against the Of the Stranded Bark
Postmaster-General, which closed in the United -.
States District Court yesterday, developed the fact N' T H 01 IN
that the very charter of that company acknowledg- : s a
es that it was incorporated for the purpose of de- Are required to deliver the same, in this
frauding the public. The act of incorporation is Town, without loss of time, to the Under-
based upon a preamble, which ie substantially in sond
these words: "Whereas, the people of Louisiana signed
have been defrauded to the extent of $2,500,000 by Any one found concealing any of the said
lottery companies established in other States, there- Materials or Cargo will be prosecuted.
fore be it enacted, &c.. that John Doe and Richard The former Crew of the said Ship have been
Roe are hereby created a body politic to cheat and paid off and the Captain is not responsible for
defraud the people of all the States and Territories any debts incurred by them.
by the sale of lottery tickets, provided the State of A TT ER T IL
Louisiana is given a certain proportion of the pro- N. A. BUTTERFIELD,
fits arising therefrom." This is the character of the Agent.
charter under which Charles Howard and his asso- Hamilton, Jany. 15, 1880.-2 3p
ciates are acting, and in order that they may continue _
their organised scheme for plundering the people,' N T
the Courts have been invoked to force the Postmast- TI G E
er-General to assist them, by extending all the -
facilities of the United States mails. The provision
which has been inserted in the C.,ntitutin,i of Lou- rn HE U N DE RSIG N E D SO L I-
isiana authorizing the charter of lottery companies
in that State, is substantially in the words of the CITS FREIGHIT Fore-
preamble to the charter of the lottery company A ft
above described, and very appropriately occupies a .
position beside that other disgraceful provision of
the State Constitution which repudiates the bonded -
debt, -_ s

Scottish Courts sternly hold trustees to the very
letter of their duties. The trustees of a certain fund
were authorised by their deed of appointment to
invest the fund in (among other things) the stock of
any chartered bank. They invested a portion of it
in the stock of the late City of Glasgow Bank,"
which was an incorporated company, but not a
chartered bank The beneficiary of the fund had not
only assented to, but had even expressly desired this
investment. After the failure of the bank she brought
suit against the trustees to compelthem to replace
the lost portion of the fund. The Court held that
they were personally liable for all losses consequent
I upon their departure from the strict letter of the
trist deed: that they had no right to take instructions
from the beneficiary as to the investment of her
Ier against herself." It will be a fortunate day for
widows and orphans when the Courts of this country
adopt Scottish strictness regarding trustees.---t.
Louis Globe Democrat.
After having shown that the construction of a
tide-level canal is possible, and under what conditions
it is possible and assured, it would only rain to
prove thua it would pay. Here the fine report of M.
Levasseur, in behalf of the Committee on Statistics,
a report which you heartly applauded at the last
meeting of the Congress, makes my task an easy one
The report declares and proves that, at the time
when the canal should be opened, it can reasonably
count upon a commerce of more than seven million
tons. Very well, the Suez Canal, which cost almost
five hundred million francs, with three million tons
only, and subjected to:demandswhich the Interoceanic
Canal will not have to undergo, is proposing a
diminution of its charges to only seven or eight
francs for actual tonnage, a tariff which could easily
be doubled without depriving the canal of a ton of
the merchandise which is passing through it to-day.
Under these conditions the Suez Canal is a prosper-
ous enterprise. Its stock, which was issued at 500
francs, is now quoted at 750 francs, and its bonds
payable at only 500 francs, are sold for 570 francs.-
