THE LATE SAMUEL SALTUS, ESQR.
It is our painful duty this day to record the
death of one who, for many years, has been a
prominent member of this community and the
personal friend of the Editor of this Gazet to."
On Thursday last, about two o'clock, Samuel
Saltus, Esqr., of Norwood, breathed his last,
calmly, and without a pang, surrendering his
well-spent life into the hands of his Maker.
The esteem in which he was held was attested
by the large number that attended his Funeral
on Friday afternoon, when the last solemnities
were performed in the Parish Churchyard, Pem-
broke, by the Rector, assisted by the Rector of
Smiths and Hamilton. As will be noticed in
the proceedings of the Legislature, the House of
Assembly adjourned on Friday out of respect to
Mr. Saltus' memory. The subject of our notice
was the youngest of a family of eight, six sons
and two daughters, who have all predeceased
him, and with him the family, identified with
Bermuda from its early history, becomes extinct.
Very early in life Mr. Samuel Saltus entered
into mercantile business in co-partnership with
his brother William, under the firm of William
and Samuel Saltus, which continued over fifty
years, until the death of the Senior Member,
when the business was conducted in his own
name, actively until within the last few years,
when declining health only permitted his occa-
sionally visiting his office and warehouses. The
transactions of the house were widespread, and,
wherever they extended, it justly enjoyed the
highest reputation for honour and integrity.
Mr. Samuel Saltus was of slender stature, of a
pleasing though somewhat reserved manner.
He delighted in the charming family residence
at Norwood, and took no little pride in preserve.
ing it in its original integrity. Acquired by
Norwood, the Surveyor of Bermuda, whose
house stood near the present Bathing House, the
property passed by marriage into the Saltus'
family, by whom it has been continuously held
and occupied.
Mr. Saltus' position in this community was
one of marked trust and reliability. His opini-
on-not only on mercantile, but also on political


THE BISHOP OF THE CHURCH OF ENG-
LAND IN BERMUDA.
The Right Reverend Llewellyn Jones, D.D., who
came passenger in the Beta, from Halifax on Thurs-
day last, was met on his landing in St. Georges,
by a deputation of Clergy and Laity, and was
conducted to Government House, Mount Langton,
where he still remains the guest of His Excel-
lency Sir R. M. Laffan.
We understand that His Lordship will take up
his residence at Bishop's Lodge to-day.
Bishop Jones attended both Morning and Even-
ing Prayer in Trinity Church on Sunday, occupy-
ing the Pulpit on both occasions. Being the Con-
version of St. Paul," he gave some plain, practi-
cal observations, on Conversion, and in a neat pero-
ration stated that he had come here on our invita-
tion, having left Newfoundland with a host of good
wishes; that he desired his work here to be equally
effectual and acceptable; that, though he had been
only a few days in Bermuda he had seen sufficient to
satisfy him that it was an entirely different field to
Newfoundland, that time would be requisite for
him to understand it; that he prayed to be endowed
with a correct judgment, that he regretted his
other engagements made his visits necessarily short
and at intervals, but that he hoped his work might
prove beneficial. In the Evening, taking his text
fro overbs iv,J25-" Let thine eyes look right on
and let thine eyelids look straight before thee"-
he pointed out, in simple and forcible language
how every one should aim at an object in life and
seek its accomplishment despite all collateral hin-
drances, thus tending to the chief end of man, the
glorifying of GOD, and the enjoyment of everlast-
ing happiness hereafter. The threatening weather
in the afternoon prevented many from attending
the evening service.
Bishop Jones' delivery is of a pleasing colloquial
style, his voice strong, though not powerful, is
sweet and clear, while his medium stature and
robust build seem to add force to his language.
4 We have been requested to state that there
will (D.V.) be a special meeting of the Synod this
day, Tuesday, at one o'clock, in the Trinity School-
room, for the purpose of approving an Address of
welcome to the Lord Bishop of Newfoundland and
of Bemu da


gF The Bermuda Hunt meet to-day, will be at
the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, to finish at Mr. Hurd's,
Woodlands, Pembroke.

Arrival of the New York Mail
Steamer.
The Mail Steamer Bermuda, Captain Wilson, ar-
rived at her wharf in this Town, on the afternoon of
the 20th instant.
The Bermuda was put into Dry Dock immediately
on her arrival hence at New York, where she re-
ceived a new propeller of the latest and most ap-
proved pattern, and was also cleaned and painted.
Came out of Dry Dock on Friday morning, the 16th
inst., and left her Pier the same evening at 7 o'clock,
for Bermuda, but was detained until noon on Sat-
urday by a dense fog. Passed Sandy Hook at 2
p.m. of Saturday, and made Bermuda at 10 a.m. of
Tuesday, the 20th.
We are indebted to Captain Wilson, and Mr.
Purser Gale, and Thomas E. Nelmes and H. F.
Malcomson, Esqrs., passengers, for New York pa-
pers of the morning of the 17th.

DIREoron GENERAL OF THE M DOAiL DEPART-
XNT OF H. M. NAvY.-Many of our readers in
Bermuda and. Nova Scotia will be gratified to
learn that Dr. Watt Reid (late Deputy Inspector
General of the Royal Naval Hospital, Ireland Is-
land,) has been appointed to the post of Director
General of the Medical Department of the Royal
Navy. He entered office on the 15th of this month.
LECTURE ON THE RHINE.-The last lecture o! the
course, under the Patronage of His Excellency the Gov-
ernor, Sir Robert M. Laffan, R.E., K.C.M.G., on the
"Rhine, its Fortresses and Castles," took place on
Tuesday evening last, in the Mechanics' Hall. Lady
and the Misses Laffan, and Lieut. Carpenter, A.D.C.,
were present. The Lecture and views met with Lady
Laffan's kind approval. A very fine selection of Sta-
tuary, with photographs of Her Majesty the Queen-
from life-and from Boehm's celebrated marble, and
those of the Earl of Beaconsfield and Bismarck, were
also exhibited. Dr. Nelson's Lectures have been well
received.
We understand that the Reverend Frederick
Skinner, a native of Bermuda, has been appointed
by the Lord Bishop of Nova Scotia,. o a Living at
Lunenburg. His late congregation at Faulkland,
part with him with much regret.

SOMERSET.
Our readers will find Dr. Nelson's advertisement
elsewhere in our to-day's issue, concerning his lec-
ture on "London, its sights, &c.," to be delivered
in Somerset, on to-morrow (Wednesday) evening.
An evening cannot be more profitably spent than
in a visit to the world's greatest city.
BOAZ.

ject of Dr. Wolfred Nelson's Lecture at Theatre

universal favor. London will be given the
night before, at the Masonic Lodge, Somerset.
MECHANICS' HALL, HAMILTON.
A general Lecture on Travel abroad-for Adults,
to be followed by one, for children, will shortly be
announced in these columns.
IRELAND ISLAND.
Arrangements will be probably made for two
Lectures at the Royal Naval Theatre, Spar Yard,
Ireland Island. "The Rhine" and "Ireland,"
will be the subjects. Ireland met with a very hearty
welcome in St. George's, a few evenings ago. In
fact all of the Lectures of this course are well se-
lected, instructive, and popular; if possible, they
will be arranged for Friday and Saturday Even-
ings of this week-to be announced by handbills at
Dockyard and vicinity.

FOOTBALL.
ROYAL ENGINEERS V. XIX REGIMENT.
This match was played, under Association Rules,
last Saturday, on the Garrison Cricket Ground,
Prospect, the Royal Engineers winning a very well
contested game by 3 goals to 1. The first half of
the game, chiefly owing to the excellent 'combined
play of Von Donop, Wood, Rawson and Tower,
the Royal Engineers had very much the best of it,
but in the last half the 19th played up hard and
nearly equalized matters by two fine rushes, the
ball in each ease only just missing the R. E. goal.
The return will be played shortly.

S'tHE BARQUE NORTH CAROLINA.-Wa understand
that an attempt was made on Thursday last, to float the
Barque North Carolina, with the view to bring her into
port, but that the anchor, which had been forced through
her bottom, when she ran on the reefs, fell out-though
it was thought to be firmly secured in position)-and
she settlV down in comparatively deep water, head
foremast. .
MR. EDITOR,-Please allow me a short space in
your issue of to-morrow to contradict the impression
on the minds of many, who have been led to believe
that, as my name did appear among those of other la-
bourers in last week's "Colonist," complaining of sol-
diers interfering with our duties in assisting to dis-
charge the Barque "Bella Mudge," then laden with
corn-that I was totally ignorant of any such communi-
cation until I read it in that newspaper; neither did I
give anyone authority to use my name so libellously.
Your obedient servant,

H. M. S. "NOPT'I'HAMPTON.",
Tl,: Flagship of Vice-Admiral SIR LEOPOLD
M'CLNTOCx, KT.
The brief visit of this complete and magnificent
man-of-wdr to Bermuda, of necessity excited a
good deal of -.pc.ulatio'n. a- to her build, equip-
ment, and actf.i,:, jat.:.ug-t. thinking, as well as
curious people. A visit was therefore in order
Ireland Island was reached, as usual by a sail-boat.
Within the Cambre one no longer saw the long and
graceful model of the B.:- 1ri[,-p:.u." but that of
another monster, painted r.t ;i dll 1 t- color, by no
means attractive in al.I 'l- i I.ff towered her
masts and rigging, bhrqu- iti.-,:l T..- bow view
shows a sharp stem, her ram being under water-
forward ,he,- drew twenty four feet three inches.
Her side view was strange, being a modern vessel,
about twenty feet being above water, with port
holes, etc.-owing to her novel make the guns for-
ward, can be fired ahead or a beam. The stern
view with a promenade *.'.ll-'ev all around was de-
cidedly u.-.v-l. this gallery surrounded by a railing
is here, termed the A.lniir l'Us walk. The guns can
also be fired directly astern or abeam, she has re-
cesses-fore and aft that allows of this. Above the
Admiral's walk at,.- Ir-rt- :rn. davitss for hoisting the'
ship's cutter. Just below, near the water, the
word N.:.tth nmi.:n" in white letters, introduces
her to the 1 ir, u:ctr- aft -,e ,!> wvtwenty seven feet.
'.r.-ki. up a narrow gangway, we stand on the
main deck. Permission was asked for, and accord-
ed to visit her, and obtain information for publica-
tion in The Daily Graphic, New York; The Cana-
dian *.."',,,' News, Montreal; The Royal Gazette,
Bermuda; The Gazette and Star of Montreal.
The main deck presented a great and varied collec-
tion of guns, boats, field guns, signal lockers aft,
-with open ends full of richly colored pennants, they
at least looked peaceful and holiday-like, still aft
the davits for the stern cutter, already referred to-
from this deck the upper, through a skylight, a
view of the Admiral's cabin, on the main deck, was
obtained-and it is a right i.:.lly pl ,i:- too (in peace)
with a companion to the io.- --:ittf:r averyimper-
,feet inspection we ascend a ladder leading to the
bridge, chart house, and deck house, and stand
near the old and large style of steering wheel, a
little distance forward on an extension at a right
anglo to the bridge, stands a support for one of
Sir William Thompson's Patent Compasses, on
an vr=-ir.-l- rn-v principal, the compass is mounted
in th.: .. .i,- i ,t ,, i,,- externally on jimbals, its es-
.--uii p...., ti; :.:,-i.'- in the suspension of the
,'. .-... ;.:it. i i,'. are many silken threads
for the iju-tL ,..it of the floating dial or face be-
low the u.: :-.l.:, 1... value of all, is due to the dispo-
sition of magnets within, by which the patentee
has fully succeeded, in doing away with the at-
traction exerted by all iron ships on their compass-
es, causing the disasters so frequently chronicled.
Hence the great value of this wonderful invention
- can be seen, which while it will be a perfect com-
pass to the mariner, and also an Elderado to the
inventor, will save the lives of thousands of those
"who go down to the sea in ships." lt1i-, abaft
this is a service standard compass, of the usual type.
Near by are -: .!-_i.: room -1 z ipl..- then a revolu-
tion indicator (not historical however) to show
what the engines are working up to, when in mo-
tion, close by a steam steering wheel, by which one
man can control the movements of the huge mon-
ster, with ease and accuracy.
Within the chart-room is a gong from the Cap-
tain's cabin. The chart-room is over the Captain's
very cosy room on -the upper deck. There are also
two voice tubes, a dial to show the ship's posi-
tion at a glance; two of Bell's Canadian telephones
-one to the Captain' -,.iu and the other running
forward--near by hangs a small but powerful
trumpet, whose .ut, i.L- orders the closing of the
doors, making w.-hrtih.- compartments. The
doors are in the 1..1...l!:1- i. below, of which more
anon. Then a patent indicator to show what helm
the vessel has. A series of mouth tubes running to
all parts of the ship, leaving all of these mysterious
things and of the dials referred to, is one floated on
glycerine, another being pneumatic. We move
forward and examine an English improvement of a
German gun, the N-...1 '-hI ; it has four barrels
somewhat 3.- .- ~, .- those of an old fashioned
duck gun. ..- "- fitted to a. square frame, on a
gun carriage of solid but' I' construction, mount-
ed on wheels, the chambers being at an elevation
of some thirty inches above deck; they are breech-
loaders, firing tyo and' sixteen ounce shot; they
can be discharged continuously, firing thousands if
necessary. Guns of this light portable class, either
in a ship's boat or on deck, are singularly destrue-
tive in cutting rigging to pieces, repelling board-
ers, or for sinking small boats. Forward we hur-
riedly step, past the double funnels, and are shown
a small but powerfully voiced instrument, called
the siren or steam fog-whistle, used in murky wea-
ther. It made a decided impression when tried
here a few days ago; the poor cows first listened
in astonishment, then up went their tails, the hair
on their backs stood erect, and they waltzed wildly
at their moorings (cows are generally found at an-
chor here) until the discordant sounds ceased. It
had a very detrimental effect on the milk crop.
This instrument stands some twenty feet above
deck in a line with the funnels. Near are six tor-
pedo guns, used for saluting purposes or-other-
wise. On board are also two electric lights-one
near the siren, and the other on top of the
rival, with the most satisfactory results. On the
evening of the experiment the flagstaff o t Mount
Langton was lighted up perfectly--the latter out
some four miles from the vessel-even the halyards
were clearly seen. Hog Fish Beacon was clearly
discerned from St. Georges, thirteen miles away.
Its great value can be estimated in search-
ing for the enemy at night, particularly of the
torpedo boat class, examining a coast, or in signal-
ing. The fighting tower on the same deck forward
is a marvel, three of its sides are formed of iron,
the height of a tall man; they are six inches thick,
the open part looks aft, and is protected by a large
curtain made of three inch rope, bullet proof. In-
side this structure is a steam steering wheel of small
size for the Chief Quartermaster, who, with the
Captain, can fight the enemy. There are also en-
gine-room telegraphs, a compass, seven voice tubes
-reaching to all parts of the ship-as well as two
of Bell's telephones; an electric battery, by which
the Captain can fire'broadsides, or direct the firing
below, as he deems best.
On her upper deck she carries two torpedo
launches of iron, narrow, of exquisite proportions,
and very rapid-sixteen knots-offering but little
surface for an enemy's fire. An apparatus is also
stored to prevent torpedo attacks. There are five


steam steering wheels on the vessel, two on the up-
per deck as already described, and three below
deck; in case of accident any one can be used.
There is also communication to the fighting tower
from the cable deck, so they can report to the Cap-
tain what order the cable is in for anchoring, &c.
The latter measures two and a half inches. Her
upper deck-looking aft from the fighting tower
-presents a wonderful variety of things. Boats of
all kinds and sizes swinging from their davits, the
immense funnels, guns of various sizes, for all pur-
poses, immense metal ventilating shafts, portholes,
stores, signal boxes, steering wheels, dials, torpedo
launches and apparatus, the huge masts with their
rigging, companions, hatches, skylights, in fact an
interminable list of things. After this imperfect
sketch we descend to the main deck and continue
our tour.
In the gun portion of the main deck are two
eighteen ton guns in the foremast compartment
for firing ahead or abeam, passing to the gun deck
pro]r, four seventeen ton guns, and four twelve


ton guns are seen, they are muzzle loading rifled
guns, without beds, tackle, etc. Past the Admir-
al's galley, whose discharges are less harmful than
those of its neighbours-we pass on to another
compartment, and are shown four twelve ton guns,
above are innumerable hooks for the hammocks
of the crew, of about six hundred. In the after
compartment are two muzzle loaders rifled of eigh-
teen tons each, they can be fired abeam or astern
as already stated. Next is a bulk head six inches
thick of solid metal. Without is an electric '-11 t. r
the use of the officers, in calling servants. Beyond
are the quarters- of the Admiral and Officers, all of
the most elaborate description, even to a piano.
The vessel has an excellent band. In case of a shot
cutting into any one of the many compartments the
Captain sounds a trumpet, this is repeated by the
man on duty also by trumpet, near the door of the
compartment that requires to be closed, each door
has four men stationed at it, who 1:y w .rkiug- a
wheel with spokes that act on an internal com-
pound screw, closes it accurately leaving the sound
compartment water tight, the commands by means
of these trumpets are past from compartment to
compartment. On the lower deck are the gun
room messes, and those of the Warrant officers,
with their cabins. Leaving the main and lower
decks for a few minutes, we descend to the steam
steering wheel deck, past the Admiral's and Cap-
tain's store rooms down a steep ladder, where all
is intensely dark, save where a ship's candle throws
a feeble ray. We stand on the fourth deck down,
of course below the water line. The tiller flat is
somewhat pyriform in shape, the tiller is an im-
mense bar of steel ten inches across and four inches
through, and some ten feet in length, it is wi-i k- 1
by chains of immense size and strength, with pul-
leys; having seen its confection with the rudder
post, we gladly leave the dark and close atmosphere
of the place and mount again to examine the en-
gines that drive the the tiller. When the wheel is put
to starboard, by the man steering above, the star-
board engine works it, and by a valve arrangement
cuts off the steam on the port side engine and vica
versa. Here are also, stored spare blades, or fans
for the propellor. Abaft the engine room, on the
lower deck is the shell room, on the deck below, the
engine room for double engines, also divided by an
iron v it i g a communicating door, these rooms
are very large, herein is the machinery that drives
the twin-screws ; it is needless to say, that every-
thing is scrupulously clean and in its place, the
steel parts being polished up to a mirror-like condi-
tion. On the lower deck are the man at dinner, it
is a vast dining hall, all. i messes, not the place,
the men. Here is a torpedo frame, for firing tor-
pedos. T-r.--.. -iu- awardss on the same deck we
stand by :h --.r-,,.- li hatchway, near the torpedo
magazine--they are hoisted up by tackles, placed in
an apparatus ith t in.t on a tramway and are easi--
ly conveyed to the frame, in two and a half mi-
nutes, after leaving its magazine, this fearful en--
gine is on its way, fired, the tramways are double
to the starboard and port sides. In the fore flat
are stores, bath rooms, and the hospital or sick-bay,
provision rooms and cells. An engine pumps air to
the torpedo-flat and room, and to the fore maga-
zine, which is said to be an uncommonly hot place,
and uncomfortable, and under the present system
of navel war-fare those below are likely to be killed
or drowned first, like rats in a bag, by the explosion
of a torpedo under the vessels bottom. On a part of
the deck over our heads, a steam engine is fastened
for working the cables and anchors, wholly inde-
pendent of any of the others, it is secured by screws
and plates. Here is another steam steering wheel,
the engine above can also work the steam capstan
as well; still below are other store rooms for the
carpenter and boatswain. On the iron wall another
Patent indicator shows the -J ijp'., speed. The mag-
azines are two in number, one here (fore) andone aft.
The vessel has two rows of port holes, but one main
. fighting deck. By means of th- i.i_,n.. i' Wn..I.t,- ..
she can still float, even if sever.I :,i- 1...,..,l.--1. .-
is an excellent sailer, rolling and pitching but little.
Below her water-line she is pointed red. The pre-
sent color has been put on to make her less uncom-
fortable, while in the West Indies, where they ex-
pect a grilling.
The electric light signal system is so perfect and
comprehensive that the following was ~I- L, t1i..-i to
Mount Langton on the evening of the experiments :
-How do you like my lights ? Alas, poor hu-
imanity may well sigh, and say what next ? As
yet we have said rJ-.l1iu about her armour, its dis-
position being novel. In the central part of the
vessel, for .about two hundred feet of her length,
she is covered with nine-inch plates; they gradu-
ally taper off to the shot-proof deck, several feet
out of water. Her ends have no special protection,
but under water are armoured to the extent of sev-
eral inches protecting all important parts. The
high battery is protected by armour-cased bulk-
heads, forward of nine-inch, aft of eight-inch plates,
used as protection against end-on'fire; it also con-
tinues with eight-inch plates on the broadside,
serving as protection to the guns fore and aft; the
amidship guns have no armoured protection, but
have splinter screens, so constructed as to prevent
as far as possible flying splinters. The armour
plates are also arranged on the lower deck to pre-
vent the destructive action of shells fore and aft,
and to protect the passage of ammunition. The
measurements without armour are some seventy
feet; the armour casing extends to the ram in
front, to the rudder aft; shot nay tear away any
of these plates without placinY the hull proper in
danger; on the outer bottom plating there is one
thickness of wood, also a covering of zinc to pro-
tect against action of the seawater. When in action
the engine room hatches are closed, and many de-
vices are used to stop a flow of water into the hold
should the sides be pierced. The displacement of the
vessel is seven thousand five hundred tons, being
considerably larger than the "Bellerophon." Her
area for plain sail is twenty-four thousand six hun-
dred feet; weight of hull and armour four thous-
and five hundred tons; equipment with coal weighs
two thousand eight hundred tons. She has an in-
dicated horse-power of six thousand. Time of con-
struction was considerably over three years. Her
cost was nearly two millions of dollars. Including
backing of teak, her armour measures twenty-two
inches in thickness; it varies according to locality.
i._- i-.nearlyrthree hundred feet long and is amid-
ships sixty feet wide. Her estimated speed is four-
teen knots. Officers and crew about sixhundred and
fifty. There are fourteen boats including the tor-
pedo boats. She carries three months provisions,
the weight of guns and stores is upwards of
twelve hundred tons. There are also hundreds
of fathoms of cables and an endless variety of
spare stores. To run over her armament again,


four ten inch eighteen ton guns, six Norden-
felts', two American gatlings, eight nine inch
twelve ton guns, one seven pounder, three nine
pounders, six twenty pounders, the large guns are
fifteen feet long, all rifled and muzzle loading, beside
an immense quantity of small arms, pistols and
cutlasses. The projectiles are many, weighing from
fifteen pounds to four hundred, such as shrap-
nell, pallisar, case, common and segment shells,
with solid shot of course; the charges of powder
vary from two pounds to seventy, the grains of
powder of various sizes and conditions. The burst-
ing charges of shells varies from twenty ounces to
twenty pounds, all of these are stored in the large
magazines; a small arm magazine also exists with
material for the Martini-Henri rifles, gatlings,
pistols, etc. Here I must draw this letter to a close,
feeling swra that the task has been but imperfectly
done. To the leniency and kind forbearance of my
readers, I commend the whole.

IRISH AGRARIAN AGITATION.- The Roman Catho-
lic Archbishop of Sa. <,';rl Regards it as Equivalent to
Communism.-LoNDON, January 18.-The Catholic
Bishop of Salford writes, diisavwo .in- his alleged
approval of the Irish agrarian agitation, saying that
to threaten landlords, and to address inflammatory
harangues to crowds of excitable peasants, are
equivalent to proclaiming Communism. His pre-
vious letter was meant only to approve of constitu-
tional agitation.
IRISH CONSTABULARY REFLUSINO TO
FIRE ON A MOB.
DUBLIN, Jany. 16.-As a process server by the
name of O'Donnell was attempting to serve a num-
ber of ejectment papers at Kilmina, County Mayo,
last night, he was seized by the people, who, after
handling him somewhat roughly, searched his per-
son and took away from him all the processes be
had in his possession. O'Donnell called upon the
detachment of constabulary, who were nominally
there to protect him, in the execution of his duty,
to fire upon the people and help him to secure his
papers at any cost, but the c,.in-tabulury declined
to shot, contenting themselTr:-s wvit i i-.warding off
the onset of the crowd as well as they could with
fixed bayonets. Showers of missiles were thrown
at them by the crowd, and many of the soldiers
were badly cut about the head and face.
Some of the more belligerent mistook the attitude
of the soldiers for cowardice, and taunted and
hooted at them. The uldlii-ts finally retreated with
fixed bayonets, and the charges still in their rifles.
It is observed that the constabulary undertake the
protection of the process servers with great reluc-
tance, and protect them as little as possible consis-
tently with their duty. The Irish constabulary,,
ali'_ough one of the most effective '.r;:auzdit:r in
the world of its kind, is made from ,- pe-liol, ,nlI
the fact is becoming more and more apparent that
the disaffection so prevalent through the country is
also fully shared by them.
LONDON, Jany. 16.-Sir Stafford Northcote, Chan-
cellor of the Exchequer, in sp -;ing at Stroud yes-
terday, defended the foreign policy of the Govern-
ment. The condition of Ireland, he said, was en-
gaging the earnest attention of the Government,
who had instructed the Irish authorities to exceed
their powers, if necessary to relieve the distress
promising them a bill of indemnity.
The Duchess of Marlborough's fund for the relief
of the dii:zr[-s in Ireland now amounts to 419,000.
PAEIS, Jany. 16.-Th._- Bel! Ai.. zocid',l;t. Commit-
tee has convened a at Brussels for the let
of February in favor of universal suffrage. The
Belgian Liberals deprecate universal suffrage as
certain to involve clerical ascendency.
LoNDON, Jan. 16.-It is reported that a meeting
ot the principal leaders of the various revolution-
ary Societies in Europe is soon to bewheld in this
city. It will be attended by Russian Nihilists,
some of whom are exiles and others -ri;ll unsuspect-
ed by the-authorities; by Italian Republicans, by
Spanish Internationalists, by German Socialists,
and by French Radicals, of the Red Stamp. The
ii n-,,e of the meeting is not clearly defined, but it
it hlutel that a general plan of operations upon the
existing monarchies will be proposed, discussed and
adopted. Several of the most notable members of
the revolutionary societies are now in Lon.-ri, and
it is supposed they are arranging for this -.Onhr Il
conference. The Governments of Russia and Ger-
many, it is said, have made representations to the
-.li-:t Government concerning this meeting, but
under the EL":bJ laws it would be impossible to
prevent its assembling.
PESTH, Jany, 16.-The ri.,tit, was renewed in
this city last night on a formidable scale. The gas
lamps in the street in front of the C- ino C:'a b..,.:s-
were broken and shots from revolvers were fired at
the police. One policeman was wounded. Twenty-
one of the rioters were arrested. The International
Society is believed to be at the bottom of the mis."
chief.
DUBLIN, Jany. 18.-A land :.ne-.in. was held at

A REPRESENTATIVE TaJRK.-- ail z Pacha, the In-
stigator of the Bulgarian Atrocities, Receives the Order
of the Medfedie.-LoNDoN, Jan. 18.-The Sultan's af-
front to England in conferring the Grand Cross of
Medjedie on Hafiz Pacha, whose removal Sir Ans.
ten Layard' demanded, exasperates Turkey's best
friends. [Hafiz Pacha will be remembered as the
chief instigator of the Bulgarian atrocities, and is
universally regarded as one of the worst scoundrels
that ever disgraced even the Turkish Empire. In
1876 Lord Derby in vain demanded bis dismissal
and punishment for the share he took in the hor-
rors of that year. Lr-a sini-.' then he has harbored
a bitter feeling towards England,and has not failed
to show it when an opportunity presented itself.
He was recently appointed ,liniite:' of Police, and
one of his first acts was to arrest a British subject
named Dr. Kallars, and a Turkish priest named
Khodja Abmed Tewfik; for translating the Bible
into'the Turkish lauahi,e. Sir Austen Layard's
energetic and determined action secured the release
of thee men and Hafiz Pacha's dismissal. Hafiz
caused the men to be arrested for the purpose of


proving his zealous watchfulness of the Mahome-
dan faith, and to gain popularity with the fanatical
party. The conferring of the Order of the Medje-
die on him by the Sultan, notwithstanding his dis-
missal and apparent disgrace, pretty conclusively
proves that he gained his point with the mob.,]

paid them the same as on ,r,,,t I paid them in

I have heard several parties rn n.;., li!;:,. 'i,-
have instigated the labourers to -1,'%- '.,r h,.ier

they have much cause to ;1itt-r i.n,:.:.. on their
success. I would like to mention that certain of the
parties, who i-en,_,l their names to the letter in the

than one cent per bushel, are on my Tally i' .,. as'

BLOWN SIXTY FEET IN AIR.
Two Men E.,'7l by an E'ip),i.,-, on the Steamer
Greece -Several others Seriously T-. i ...;.17- The
Cause of the Catastrophe i... ,/,I ,., i.,rt -A
Case which requires investigation.
'.'t,-. i.tI-i.-er Greece of the N.:.'on-ii Lin. arrived
from Europe at her dock, foot of Firit. street, Ho-
boken, at 2 o'clock -. -. .Lr. afternoon. She
lbr,,-ti a full load of passengers and Ifr-.ht and
ca. ri-id several hundred tons of soft coal in her hold
as ballast. T!ih passengers debarked, and workmen
began uti-ln.-in t the freight. The firm of Welsh
Brothers, who have the contract for dilii:i-t.4 eti- re-
dores' work.for the N,.i n .1- Steamrlii-. V/ohIp-i y.
went aboard the vessel with about forty "lont-.h:.re-
men, Mr. George Welsh and one of the firm's em-
ployes, named Patrick Dunn, went into the hold of
the vessel to make arrangements for removing the
soft coal. Mr- Welsh carried an ordinary i,.-oi,'
lantern, such as is usually used on shipboard. H -
ordered a dozen of his employes to stand near the




the coal, which had become wet from the bilge water
inthehold. The force oftheexplosion c-,... .way.-
the lower, second and third hatches and tore up a
large portion of the decks. ",-.,i.: Welsh and
Patrick Dunn were instantly killed, and nine men
were seriously injured. Tl w.- .....i -. ..: was iuni'ei
and the vessel was threatened with destruction by
fire.
A pe. ice-ia, who was on the dock ran to the sig-
nal-box and sent out an alarm, which Ino ,.iI third
Hoboken Fire Department to the seen-. .-'..r,,I
streams were soon brought to bear on the flames, and
the fire was soon i-.xui;! .-.] ; and then began the
work of searching for the killed and wounded.
Patrick Dunn was bltwn i.p ih.o, *:ii the three hatch-
ways and into the air, a i9 r,.:-, it was -.li., -f
sixty feet. His lifeless body fell overboard into the
water, and was 'i. .:-., up by several boatmen.
George Welsh was blown against the timbers oi the
ship, and his brains were dashed out. August Mc-
Donald, the second steward of the vessel, who was
on the deck near one of the hatchways, was badly
burned about the head and face. William Cutir-ll


and James Anderson, cooks, and Robert Richards,
qu(it L- t n. t. -. .who stood near McDonald, were very
badly hurt. Aliioug- a dozen 'l',.,shbi.rtuln si-),)d
near the lower hatch at the time i.f ih,- espli-.in,
only three of them were seriously injured and four
slightly hurt. The three most seriously hurt were
John Welsh, a brother and partner of Geurge
Welsh ; Paul Sleicher and Henry Pitt, Charles N.
Brackett, a Custom House Inspector,- was burned
about the head and shoulders.
Coroner Wiggins told the reporter for THE STAB
that the explosion on the re:,ti.n,- Gre:ce was simi-
lar to the fire-damp accidents that-often happen in
the coal mines of this country u.l Eu roe, and which
would be much more frequent were it not for the
fact that the miners use safety lampd. In all of thb-
'Coroner's experience, however, he had never before
known of a fire-damp explosion on ebipboard. He
said that he would take great pains to select intelli-
gent men for thejury at the inquest, and make a full
and careful investigation with a view to ascertaining
where the blame, if any, actually belongs.
