The aboewnentioned School celebrated their An-
nual Sports at Tucker's Field on Monday, April I
5th. and we are glad to learn that the gathering
was, in allre.-pects, a pleasant and auccCessf!l one.
The Steeple Chases, which, as usual, were run iu
the MountLrigton Marsh, a few days previous to
the day fi.ed foi the Sports, brought together a
number ol the boys' friends to witness these excit-
ing contents. The fir.t race was for all boys under
14 yearsof age, over a very heavy course of 1200.
4 ds, interspersed with 14 broad water jumps.
e competitors came to the starting post and all
got awaywith a capital start, ,T. Heyl and Harry
Butterfielj showing the lead over the first ditch ;
this ordep was unaltered throughout the race. J.
Hey], running in very good form, drew away more
and more fro flip the others and won easily; time 7
min., 30 sec.; Harry Butterfield and A. Butterfield
running very pluckily throughout and gaining se-
cond and third honors. The ditches, swollen by I
heavy rxins, were anything but tempting and all
bore evident marks on their persons as to their
strong partiality for cold water. In the first class
seven answered their names but one could easily
see that only three meant real work" and lasting
to the end. The course was over a mile of the
sarame ground a:nd included about 20 water jumps.
Hinson showt'l the lead over the first ditch but R.
Tucker very quickly ran him down and c-lear-il the
second ditch five or six ya-t'; aladl, (;t'rathlai
laying well up for third place, while: the ,Others
were nowhere. R. Tucker then gradually increased
his lead and won as he liked ; time 7 rain. ; Hinson
and Granthanm finishing respectively a ininute aund
a minute and tliree-quarte:s aftt.r him; the,. p.1Cce
Swas srong throughout and the jumping was better
than we have yet .,eenj. Monday was all that could
be desired as .: Sports day and the large atttendiaincI
on the.ground clearly showed the iutert.-r felt was
very extensiv:. Had we sp.i-e we would :ladly
detail the nu,. -:rous events that followed in quick
:-uccessiou k tc'ing the spc'Qtator.m constantly amuis-
ed, but it mu:.; however suffice for us just. to men-
tion sorue of t'hi) most no:tal:.el performances of the
day. The milk- race was very well conteste-d, E.
Goshling, the winner, showing great pluck and en-
durance at the-finuish ; time (6 min., 6 se<. The se-
cond and third half mile, were spirited rab-eA
and called f.' thl some -npitrl running in the
youngsters. HTigh jump, wide jump and hurdle
races were vtiy closely cnite.sted. Tihe stranger;.'
race brought six starter:; an.d was won in brilliant
style by Mr. Erownlow Gray ; time 10 see. The
Donkey Race :nd I'hree- Legged Race caused great
amusement. By subscriptions raised on the ground
a purse was rai-'ed for three races, one for the Or-
derlies, the second for Blue Jackets and the third
--for all comers. whic:h-~clddcid an additional interest to
the day's pro.- edings. The Prizes were given
away by Mrs. Clay at 6 p.m., and three cheers
for Mr. and Mrs. Clay and three more for the
ladies who graced the occasion by their presence,
brought a most successful day to a very pleasant

been honorably acquitted of the ch-,rge of defraud-

On Thursday lait, at 1 p.m., the Pew-renters hel!
nn adjourned nicetin, thie Hon. Juln H'mey l'arrell,
C.M.A;.. in the chair, when the Comnnittee presented
the draft' of a petition to the Legislature. praying that
lhe Act of l'-70 might bN relp-aled and so much of
it re-enacted as was friend neces-.ary, <(get lier with
sueh ad'liti,-ns aa experience had deeramed r. iluini-itp. The
clauses wv o considered ,'iatlim and ad'ijitoi, the pro-
vi"ion iniplied being clearly stiatel, ihat the Pew-
ren ters shiiuld have ,,wer, as now, lu rant tlhe Min-
ister a salary f-r a termi nit le.s than three nor
more than sovi-n years. The first >-lane provides that
Trinity Church .-shall be constitutr.l. from a Chapel of
Ease to the Parish Church, into a 'Cathedral under thIe
control of the Bishol, in spiritual things and under the
rnarii-,ment nfi tle Pow-rcnter;s, Cha'lpel Wardens and
Vestry in tnimoril hings.. The question of cathedral
priirakd-.l n ,iiission, an.1 an amnendluent to strike
it out was lo-l. Another aniendment, to substitute
Cliriphi fir athieral, was also li.(t.
The Chapel Wardens were instructedJo send a copy
of the pli titon to the-Rector for his consideration and
eoncurren.o, and, another copy to the Bishop for hiR in-
orniation. The matter therefore rests here until the
Rector returns his answer. It was stated that. unlike
SChapel of Ea-.." tC atlredral" lias s-veral definitions,
but tl1at the eon titiliir. which established each cathe-
dral, als, clearly define.! it. In this instance the petition

.0taled the consititutiin desired. The word church liad
no concise meatnin in law. .4W the C1.ige not po-
p.os., airaiints to this. that the islhop takes the place
of the Minitor ot,f Trinity f'hur,?h, itht as a cathedral
the i teetor h ,ns 1,, o ri,.litfs over tine church, and
that ne-ithIer-r tth iBisopip ir I, ,urate will intprfi-rowith
the Parochial rights of thie tleelor. The present Rector
to have all pecunniary benefit. nand to retain his veto on
services in Trinity Church at the same hour as the
Parish Churich., provided the sorvic.s are not more
numerous than they now are. The chenle seems
the [best adapted, te ) cure th- rigght-, of the Rector, the
integrity ot the l'arisl;,the inrlependence of the Minister
of Trinity, being the Bishop', curate, and (lte prosperity
of tlhe Church generally It asks the Legislature for
the least possible chlangt'.

On Wedne-.lay aftrrnion last, the Lord Bishop of
Newfoundlland and Bermuda consecrated the recent ad-
dlitiinnnaJe to thle Cemeitery. The Bishi.p. with the
Rev. Mark James for his Chaplai,, accompanied bv' the
Reeftor, thle Rev. George Tucker, and thel Rev. Dr.
Hollingsworthi, entered the Church at 4 p.m., when
Evening Prayer was said, and an Address delivered by
thle Bishop. The Bishop, Clerzy and people after-
wards repaired to tile yw-l, ind walked in dule form
round the in its of (lie ground. The Horn. Eiigenius
Harvey preoentod the Petition for consecration. The
Rv. Ml Irk James read the sentence ofconseerati.,i,
which tli1, Bi.hop .signed, after which a hymn uung,
llio 'raver ofljr'ed up. aId tlie B-nEdiction pronounced.
His Lordship's address may b., tlhua simniarisd:-
I have coniie here to- day to eoni-ns,:erato tihe addition just
male to your Churchyard, one large enough for gener-
rtions to come, and for which you cannot but feel
.hankftil that it was within your power to secure.
Hen-oitforth let your Churchyard exhibit appropriate
features, and prove a pattern to all other- in Bermuda.
The praelice ofconsecrating ground for burials is here
'oniparatively recent, but in Old England it has been
lie custom for over one thousand years, to deposit the
lead in Churchyards set apart for the purpose preserved
froin all common uses. The practice does not appear
o have become usual until the 600th year of the Chris-
ian -ra. It is a hihrlily desirable usage that the dead
should repose near where they were wont to worship
when alive in thle body, and to the living it would seem
o demonstrate a greater nearness ofthe departed, buri-
ed in GoD's acre. It may seem a small matter, but it
s not, to teach your children to reverence the Church-
ard, to avoid treading on graves, to look on the rest-
ng places of the great dead as hallowed ground. In
he xi of Hebrews, -0th verse, you will find a striking
talement that all shall be alike, and without preference,
together, admitted to the full realization ot the future
ife GOD having provided s, better thing for us.
ihat they without us should nit be made perfect."
rhIe earliest, as well as the latest, of GOD'S Saints, shall
ogethelr enter into the happiness of the future life,
either we without, them, nor they without us. The
ead wait for thIe living, lest they without us should ba
nade perfect. They, who died in faith having seen
hie promises afar o,1 shall trigether with us, and not
before us, who hale inherited the promises, be admitted
nto thIe lull j,,ys of Heaven. This is a precious
iouglit, and should 'iduce as to regard the resting
)lace.s of thIe dead beside GoD's sanctuary as sacred.

Apropos of the Iilth of a second son to the
'ount. of Paris, it is to be observed that the name
f a new nretender is quietly whispered in French
oliiceal circles. It i> that of the Duke of Char-
res, brother of thie Count of Paris. This Prince,
bho, after servinci on the staff of General McClellan

n the American civil war, enlisted as a private sol-
.ier during the Franco-German war as Robert
Lefurt, soon won his epaulets and the Cross of the
Legion of Honor by his valor, and now is colonel
r a regiment quartered in Algeria. He is the only
ne of the Orleans family who has never dipped in
As sad a story as was ever feigned in verse comes,
rom Ci'nnes of the death there of an English offi-
er, C('lonel Pickard, of cor.gestl.ion of the lungs,
n the day apppointed! for hi. weddinu to Miss .1Me
e'ile, whose father, Sir Ji.hln MeNeile, had dieil
nly three mont,:-h before. The very wreaths which
Nere to have been used at the wedding became fu-
eral garlands to be thrown on the coffin, and the
'ridal veil and dreos weie lying ready to be put on

eui <-,of Immii,_,rlion and tie C(hi' f IEnlineers of
some of the Florida r.dlroqd.=. we shall not be 0sub-
ject to the implication of straining at .nnMt when
we again recur to the subject. As these high pow- t-hat. be seem disposed to (transform themselves
into hugie niusquitos. and to eat each other up,
or at least to sting each olher !to death. it n -ay he
prudent tor us to cost oniselves into the bloody
chasm, and quell the fray by taking up the dincus-
.i,,n ourselves, and we nway pr-mnise that, like Bret
Ilnrte's hero. we've ber-n ithr loo."
We have received further tUstimon.y, some of
which i&s submitted I v men who have cruised in
Florida waters during the winter months, and saw
only three mnusquites and three fleas. But the
most of it sulstantiates niko the original statements
of A. I. G Lar'i" regarding the size and in ulItpli-
city of these pests, but rs no new facel are addluceed
we *hall spare riur readers a further discussion of
the question. It i. reliable correspondent, to state that the evidence
submiltrd would seem to fully prove tha't the
whole has not yet been told concerning the insect
pests of Southwest Florida. The torimentt there
Inflicted, especially upon new comers, by rnu;cqulh.os
and sand-.lies, is almost unendurable. It is no
mercy to a man to alli.w him to go there urpre-
pared for this fa-tcr in existence. Better should
the Florida visitor or immigrant understand that
he must be prepared to encounter the pelts, so that
he may be forearmed wvith hisi net and his fsmic-a.
tois. or at nil events ncrvei, to endue ile su.ffer-
ing until he small bare Lecorne poisoned into indif-
ferene. For it is a vell known eact that a peiron 's
blood mray Iec.iime so thoroughly inoculated with
the vii us thaLt the insects troulk-: him comnirnfively
little. A stranger alwahis sufl'ers where a native nr
naturalized ii.habituan pl.liciidly endiuroe the.? bleed-
ing. The man who goes to Florida may i.ahbe up
his mind beforehand to undergo annoyance and
discomfort of many linds and d.-re.s The peo-
ple who picture any land as an Utopia, free from
all ills, are the people-ten chances to one-who
have laud to sell or rooms to let, ol bo.ila to hire.
That is Ite rule the world over, and land specula-
lion is much like any otler kind of business ir the
long zuu. The end will be more sadtiMletory to all
concerned if the representations mdle ly ng.nts ap-
proximate lte truth. The individual Florida land-
owner and the State Boaid of Immigrrtion will fare
better eventually if these representations be!l out
for 1be proipeclive imnmig;ant are truhfiul and

denying their existence, Florida would be an excel-

tive Committee of .the Palestine Exploration Fund
have elected Mr. James Glaisher, F.R.S, as their
chairman, in the plaeo of the lat., Mr. Hepworth
Dixon. Mr. Glai-her bhas been an active memberof
the committee since the formation of ihbe society, and
is well known, apart tmor his scientific reputation,
is a strong adviecate for careful and methodical
research on those subjects which bear upon Biblical
illustration. A chaung, has also been made in the
editorship of the Meuluirs. Colonel Wilson, R.E.,
Consul-General of Anatolia, the editor-in-chief, has
found it impossible to conduct the work at so great
a distance, and has resigned. The charge of putting
through the pre,,s the wYlhiminious iuais of natter
Ibhich the committee have in their hands ha beenu
offered to, and accepted by, Mr. E. H. Palmer,
Fellow of St. John's, Camnbride, and Lord Almon-ti's
Professor of Arabic in that University. Professor
Palmer was formerly a member ol the Sinai S;urvey
Party, aud in 1870 p-rformned an adventuroun journey

Supplement to the Royal. Gazette, April 20, 1880.

For the Royal Gazette.

For I am nothing if not critical-OTIELI1..
What is the end of Fame ? tis but to fill
A certain portion of uncertain paper.- DON Jt AN.

Mn. EDITOR,--" You knew, none so well. none so
well as you," that you had set me a pleasing task
in asking me to give you an account of the Pro,,-
pect Thleatricals on Tuesday and Wednesday. The
former doings of this Company made it pretty sure
that whatever was undertaken would be well car-
ried out, and though Caste" is a very difficult
pierce, I for one was very glad to see it advertised.
And I will say at once that I was not disappointed.
The plot of this comedy is simple yet effective.
Captain D'Alroy, son totheMarquise deSaint Maur,
in obedience to the dictates of his heart and in de-
fiance of the law of "Caste," married Esther Ec-
cles, attached to one of the minor theatres, who has
the misfortune to possess a drunken father. After
a married life of six months the Captain is ordered
to India, but conceals the fact from his wife, who,
however, learns it through overhearing the parting
between the Marquise and her son. During
the officer's absence abroad, his wife becomes a
mother and in reduced circumstances. A report of
D'Alroy's death reaches England, and notwith-
standing her poverty, his presumed widow declines
invoking assistance from her patrician mother-in-
law, who, informed of Esther's distressed circum-
stances, proposes to take possession of the child.
Through the humanity of Major Hautree, D'Alroy's
brother officer, the necessities of the young mother,
disappointed in obtaining a professional engage-
ment, are relieved, when the supposed dead man re-
appearsin sound health. A reconciliation between
the Marquiseand her daughter-in-law completes the
happiness of the returned husbIand, rejoiced to find
his wife and infant son recognized by his airs.-trera-
tic relatives. The other prominent characters in
the Comedy are Hautree, a scion of a plebt in stock,
aspiring to marry alady in her own right,but jilted
at the last hour; Polly, Esther's sister, an unambi-
tious, warm-hearted girl, and Sam Gerri.Ige, an
hoienst, blunt and well-meaning mechanic, Polly's
suitor and accepted husband, who, with Ecvles,
a confirmed inebriate and blatant advocate of work-
ing men's rights, illustrate various phases in the
distinctions of Caste."
Now, though the plot is simple, the characters of
the Dramatis Personte are so distinct that in a lim-
ited society such as that of Bermuda, it is very hard
to find actors suited to the parts, and it is not sur-
prising that all the delineations of character were
not equally successful. "But," as the immortal
Bard says, often times excusing of a fault, doth
make the fault the worse by the excuse." My own
experience of the difficulties of Amateur perform-
ances presses me to say thus much, for a fellow
feeling makes one wondrous kind" and where there
was so much to admire and praiie we can well pass
over weaknesses.
Specially to be praised was the acting o(f Mr.
Wood, '.E., as D'Alroy-little mniore could be de-
sired in his rendering of a character which, in ll.s
able hands, might .inlk almost into insignificrnr'e,
but which hie made quite the leading part. In it
were touches of acting of th very highest excel-
lence. A little tame in the opening srene perhaps,
(biut then he was what Polly calls "Spoons,") he
improved throughout, and carrid the audience
with him in deep interest in his romantic attach-
men t and his suithsequent troubles and liappiunss.
And very ably was hie supported by Esther, whose
whole appearance, demeanour and tone were ad-
mirable. I am told this was nearly, if riot quite,
the first time this lady has acted in Public; if so,
it is the more wonderful that, in so trying a part,
frhe sh,:uld have looked out over the Sea of up-
turned faces." with no perceptible tremor other than
that caused by t le assumed emotion of the ,ihar-
acter. I heartily congratulate the energetic Im-
pressaio ri ,n -uch atn addition to his Company, a
lady of engaging manners with so clear a voice is
invaluable on the Boards. Talking of I onards re-
mihs mei of feet, do you rmentniber Suckliangs' ;1:l-
lad, Her f,.-.t beneath her petticoat, like little
mice s tole ina nnl out, ds if they feared tihel lightt"
Those prunell boots regularly "' fetchled"n mt, a',nd
I am bound to ronfcss I hat in the scene whitref Es-
ther laments her lost husband, first at the cradle.
and then ;n. the fire place. I felt albeit unused to
melting wood," that like Sami Gerridge ti, \water
was up my meter."
Captain Hautre.e'- is a manner which an Ama-
teur can scarcely be expected to hit off. Tlhe af-
fecated languor and swagger f the parvenu"' can
only be learnt liy long practice, by practice bothl off
and on the stage, it is a manner that must be habi-
tual or it fails directly tlhe actor ge(..- interistehd in
his part, and the very interest which Captain I'il-
leau always throws into his parts made the charac-
ter more difficult for him than for othie s whi, dIC'
not so keenly cuter into the plot. Careful and cor.
reet throughout., there was not sufficient contrast
between Hautree and D'Alroy, or even between the
former and Gerridge. I give my honest opinion,
though I must add that some of my neighbours it was wise ,,f Captain l'illeau to kee.p en-
tirely clear of anything that could seem to be. a copy
of Bancroft's lhfttree":
"'Tis with our juiigiiCnts ist. our watches, none
Go just alike, yet. each believes his own."
Polly and Gerridg, --I will not s.eparate them-
she is thine, e.nd I don't know a gas fitter man.
They were made for one another. An excellent
piece of acting all round. I diM not believe Samuel
had it in him, but he has and no mistake, and
Tuesday's performnances prove him to be fit for first
rate Casts. As for Miss Bremner. we lovers of the

difficult bit., was the description of the ballet of La
Folle, as also was Esther's manner of listening to
it, and of gathering from it that D'Alroy was alive.

Mr. Manager, I am surprised that you missed the
importance of it.
I like Mrs. Randall'. acting, I always do, anil
you can hear every word shle .:ays. It must have
been a great trial to licr to n,,t so grave a part.
Fortunately it is short, and I have no doubt she
took it out in laughter behind the scenes. Her re-
miniscences of Froissart, were well rendered, and the
necessary contrast between the proud Marquise
and the low born, though sweet and elegant. Es-
ther. and the vivacious, vulgar, happy Polly, was
carefully kept up-thouotgh her difficulty in this
was much the same as that of Hauntre .'s part. The
tone and manner of the Marquises speech to Es-
ther, when the latter has ordered her to the door,
were excellent, following as they did on the passion-
ate words of the offended wife, Midow and mother.
Who drive, fat oxen should himself be fat."
Who acts a drunkard, it appears, should, on the
contrary, be a teetotaler. Such, I believe, is Cap-
tain Puzey, and I never saw any one so drunk ex-
cept the man who laid down on tlie floor for fear
he should f-.ll the ceiling. I have uc
hesitation in saying that I think the acting of this
part quite e-qlual to_ Honey's, who o; _rinaly per.
formed it at the Prince of Wales's Theatre. A
fellow that hathi had hopes" like Dogberry, whose
better days were most like gone for ever," we saw
in Eecles tf e horrors of the master fiend Drink,'
the utter dleba.)Isement of minid anl bo.:ly. This was.
pourtrayed by C(':ptain Puney with a master hand.
There was no -hiiking the fact that the drunkard

is disgusting, yet there was no unnecessary coarse-
ness in the impersonation-not a sign of forgetful-
ness, for a moment, of the character of the man,
but none of the ordinary adjuncts of hiccough and
drivelling which are so disagreeable to an educated
audience. Poor old Eccles, he followed too well
the advice in Dombey and Son-" Wal'r, my
boy, said th Captain, in the Proverbs of Solomon,
you will find the following words, may we never
want a friend or a bottle to give him,' when found
make a note of."
The after piece on Tuesday was Craven's Come-
dy My Preserver," in which Captain Pilleau, in
the character of William Bury, found himself quite
in his element. I was glad that those who did not
witness his former successes in Plot and Passion
and The Ladies Battle.. should have an opportunity
of seeing him in his wn form. -His play in the
first scene with Estelle, which ends in his declara-
tion and the bursting of his garments, was very
animated and amusing.
His gallikaskins that had long withstood
The winter's fury and encroaching frosts
By time subdued (what will not time subdue)
A horridl chasm disclosed -"
The piece is well designed, the confusion caused
by the names of Bilberry (Bill Bury), the Plough-
boy, who really saved the heroine from a watery
grave, and William Bury, who carried her up to
the house and was thus supposed to be her Pre-
server." is very natural and is kept up throughout
to a probable result. Miss Cornwall Lcgh, in this
her first appearance, made a decided hit as the ro.
mantiO', novel reading damsel, ready to bestow her
hand and fortune on her Preserver. Bilberry
(Captain Moir) kept the audience in roars of laugh-
ter; his slow stammering delivery being well con-
ceived and ably sustained, whilst his general get
up" was excellent. On his first entry I felt in-
clined to shout out. bless thee Bottom, bless thee
thou are translated." His Dolly, (Mrs. Randall),
was the Margery of last year, but the part is not at
all equal to that of the Rough Diamond: the sim-
plicity of the loving county wench who kisses her
rustic swain "right bang afore old chap," was de.
liciously played. "Both were so young and one
so innocent that kissing passed for nothing." Pray
pardon the liberty, Shade of great Byron. I no-
ticed that rogue of a Doctor under the trying cir.
cumstances: prompt., very prompt.; but how about
the Prompter. "Comparisons are odorous." What
a treasure of a servant we have in Mary-
"Waller!" Well, Ihave'nt, I wish I had, but, I
mean she is a treasure on the stage, and lights it
ip, as Gerridge says, like a patent double burner
lava lamp. lHer swimming lesson with William
Bury was capital, both master and pupil did it
very well, that trim-built print and black belt. were
very suggestive Mary -" Walker !" I won't finish
the sentence on the strength of it. Mr. Mallable
played his part well, so well that I would say more
about it, had not. Captain Holt shewn his powers
in Gerridge to such advantage that it is no wonder
he could take the much easier r6le of Mallable.
Both he and Pulsford were playing easily and well
in hand after the difficult strain of the first piece,
and had time to look about them and enjoy the
situation. Mr. Wood's was admirable.
On Wednesday the after piece was Anything
for a Change," a brilliant little Comedy by Shirley
Brooks. Al. what memories it raises. Harley,
,dear old Harley, as Honeyblall; Charles Mathews,
as Swoppington, Mrs. Leigh Murray and charming
Kate Fitzwilliam-there was a caste-there acting.
But from the table of my memory I'll wipe away
all trivial, fond records." Several alterations had
been made in the Bills, and one which was left. un-
noticed in the printed programme. On enquiry I
find that both in this piece and the other two the
characters wero cast and re-cast several times.
The best. laid schemes o'mice and men, Gang aft
a.gley" and ill health, mourning, and the vicissi-
tudes of the "Service," upset a Manager's calcula-
tions terribly. The Company deserves the great-
er credit for the performances.
The plot of anything for a Change hangs on a
ludicrous failing of Swoppington, who "is never
satisfied with anything of his own but always
wants everything that 1,elongs to other people."
Mr. Honeyball (Mr. Wells of the Northampton,")
who wishes Swoppington (Mr. Wood], R.E.,) to
marry his sister-in-law Margaret (Mrs. Kennedy)
has asked him to his house, and knowinghis failing
itr dues to him his sister as his wife, and hi" wife
(Miss Bremner) as his sister. Swoppington inime-
di-itely takes a fancy to the pretended wife and af.
ter many amu.-ing complications obtains her con-
sent to run away with him and he thus becomes
enraged to Margaret, for there's no erring twice
in lve or war." The scenes between Honeyball and
Swoppington in which the latter tries to swop"
watches, chairs, clothes, seats and at breakfast to
change and re-change the part of cold fowl given
lhiih, excite peals of laughter. -Both actors sustained
their ,:haraeters well. Mr. "Wood was perhaps a
little, too restless; but haply my remembrancle of
theo very quiet manner of Charles Mathews has
prejudiced nmy mind. The gentlemen were well
supported by the ladies; Mrs. Kennedy's acting is
very attractive. h,.r voice is ever soft. gentle and
low-an excellent thing in woman," and she is
perfectly at case on the stage. It is a pity that a
h,.tter piano was not provided, two effective songs
would have added much to the attractiveness of
the ladies part but with such a instrument it was
irpops-tile to do anything-the wretched tin-pot
affair-" like sweet bells jangled out of tune and
harsh"-greatly marred those parts @f Caste in
which the March" should be softly but decidedly
A.nd whilst writing of music may I be allow-
cd to suggest that not more than one half of the
brass instruments should be used in the Orchestra.

Driven back by the curtain the sound is over-
powering. I could truly say with Wordsworth,
the music on my ears (heart) I bore, Long after
it was heard no more," and as to talking between
the acts, though I was particularly anxious to say
something pretty to a nice little girl next me, I
never could make her hear what I said. Miss
Cornwall Legh filled prettily the part of Eliza-
what a nice little girl, said Swoppington. deuced
pretty, and handy and quiet-I'll engage her my-
self.' I quite agree with him and so do his sisters
and his cousins and his aunts,
Little Mr. Jeremy Census, "Assi.stant Registrar
of Births, Deaths and Marriages," was taken by
Mr. Cockburn, 99th Regt., who also filled the parts
of Dixon in Caste and Philip in My Preserver.
The parts are small but I think we shall see this
young officer attempt and succeed in something
better--his get up as Census was very quaint and
telling, and he was excellently peppery on the loss
of his stick and spectacle-.
4 When we consider that, two of the greatest fa-
Sv.,rites of the Bermuda Public were absent from
thih.-e r(,pre.-en tat ions, great credit is due to the
Manager for the strength of his Company. I
hope the next performances will include those now
alsent as well as those whose success I chronicle.
No doubt stage properties are a great difficulty
'nut. here, hut, nevertheless, I think something
Srnihtl. be done with the aid of paint and putty to
renovate the scenery at the Prospect Theatre: con-
sult Sam Gerridge on this point, he ought to know.
iThe May Fair Lodgings in Caste did not recall to
Imy mind any of those dear little rooms in Curzon
Street and the purlieus of Piccadily, in which the
Sel, gance of Honi." i provided for 5. guineas a
w-evk. And thle ilra ing- rooms of the heiress Es-

The Observatory, Bermuda, 17th April, 1880.

Rarely 'has an occasion of more lasting interest
occurred in the social history of these Islands than
that which took place on Monday, the 12th instant,
when their Royal IHighnesses Prince Edward and
Prince George of Wales. Midshipmen on board H.
M. S. BJacchaie, conjointly laid the foundation
stone of the Ireland Island Seamen and Marines'
Club. The interest of the proceedings is enhanced
by the consideration that the first public act of the
future Sovereign of the great. English Empire was
thus performed in Bermuda, and for the welfare of
our seamen and marines.
The site selected for the proposed Club is on the
raised plateau midway between Lodge Point and
the Naval Hospital on the south shore of Ireland
Island. This beautifully wooded spot is about two
acres in extent, and for salubrity or loveliness of
aspect cannot be surpassed in Bermuda.
The grounds were tastefully decorated with flagS.
An ample space was roped off for the accommoda-
tion of the Princes, ladies and officers, leaving an
abundance of room for seamen, marines, and the
public generally to see the ceremony.
The foundation stone was a magnificent block of
native Bermudian stone, duly prepared by C. S.
Davis, Esqr., Clerk of the Works in Dockyard, who
also manufactured a beautiful mallet, and trowel of
Bermudian cedar for the use of the Princes.
In a glass bottle, deposited under the foundation
done, was placed, together with sundry coins of
the realm, and a Bermuda Almanack for this year,
the following inscription :
This foundation stone was jointly laid by Mid-
shipmen their Royal Highnesses Prince Albert
Victor Edward Christian and Prince George Fred.
eriek Ernest Albert of Wales, R.N., in the presence
of Vice Admiral Sir Leopold M'Clintock, Kt., F.
R.S.. His Excellency the Governor Sir Robert Laf-
fan, K.C.M.G., and a numerous company, on the
12th day of April, 1S80, being the 43rd year of the
reign of her most gracious Majesty Queen Victoria.
A blessing was asked by the Right Rev. Llewellyn
Jones, D.D., Lord Bishop of Newfoundland and
Bermuda. 1'hich may GOD grant."
The young Princes arrived on the ground about
half-past 3 o'clock, accompanied by Lord Charles
Scott and the Rev. J. Dalton, and were received by
the Committee of the Club. Shortly afterwards
the Governor and Lady Laffan, Sir Leopold and
Lady M'Clintock and the Bishop arrived, together
with a large number of naval and military officers,
clergymen and friends of the institution, whilst
many hundreds of seamen, marines and others ad-
ded life and interest to the scene.
The Princes havinsr taken their places, Prince
Edward was handed the trowel and Prince George
the mallet.
The Admiral then addressed the assemblage to
the following effect:in
"We are met. hero on a very interesiug occa-
sion, for it is, I may say, the realisation of the
hopes of many true friends of the seamen and ma-
rines, as it is also of the men themselves,
VWe are particularly fortunate in having ob-
tained the willing services of the sailor sons of H.
R. H. the Prince of Wales to lay the foundation
stone of the Seamen and Marines' Club.
Captain Moresby will tell you briefly of its ori-
gin, its progress, and its future prospects. I trust
the young Prim es will hereafter experience a plea-
surable satisfaction in having, thus early in life,
taken part in so good and useful a work, and one
that is intimately connected with the noble profes-
sion to which so many here present have the honor
to belong."
Captain Moresby then briefly explained that the
first origin of a Serinmr.n and Marines' Club in Ber.
muda, wa. due to A.dmiral Sir .Iames Hope, G.C.B.,
who in l;66 established a reading and recreation
room for seamen. But this, after an existence of
some year, fell into ectey.
The idea of a Scamen and Marines' Club, on a
more extended scale, was revived by Admiral Sir
Cooper K,.y in S77. He selected the present site,
and most liberally headed a Subscription List.
Admiral Sir E. A. Inglefield assumeil the command
in May 1t7,.l, and to him the Institution isindebted
for his warmest support. On his recommendation
the Lords of the Adniralty finally made over the
present site to the trustees for the Seamen and
Marines' C(lbb, and gave p,:rmissio, for the erec-
tion of the billings.
Capt. Moresby thn explaiunfil the highly satis-
factory c,,jdition of tlhir finanu.s. the large sum of
1,560 having been c-:llect:d and although it was
somewhat stai tlinwg to be told that 2,c)00 more
would be required, y.t tihe satisfactory assurance
was given that there was no dimbt but that the
money would lei forth,'oinig.
Caplt. Moreshy's r niouncement that each of the
Midshipmen Princes had, out of his own pocket
money, subscribed 10, was received with loud
cheers, as also when lie stated that a contract had
been ente-red into with Mr. Whitney, one of our
ablest local contractors, for the erection of the
building within eight months. Capt. Moresby
concluded by drawing a bright picture of the fu-
ture of the Seamen and Marines' Club.

The Lord Bishop, assisted by the Rerd. C. H.
Harbord. R.N., then, in befitting prayer, asked the
blessing of Almighty (or,, on the undertaking, and
on all concerned in it. This was a very solemn
scene, and was evidently no mere matter of form to
many present.
The Princes then played the stone and, standing
side by side, with clear voices said : We pronounce
this stone well and truly laid."
The Piishop then offered up another very impres-
sive prayer. After which the Doxology was sung
by all present and the Benediction pronounced.
Sir Leopold M'Cliutock then said :-" The found:
nation stone having now been duly laid under the
most favorable auspices, allow me, before we separ-
ate, to remind you all of our indebtedness to the
Prince and Princtss of Wales, for the presence
among us of Prince Edward and Prince George.
I think it would be difficult indeed to find an in-
stance of greater self denial, parental devotion and
courage than they have shewn, in thus parting with
their t'o only sons, for long and distant educational
voyages, to many a British land, to see with
their own eyes and tolearn many a lesson of practical
life, which will r.nmain indilibly fixed in their mem-
ories. And these voyages they are making, not as
passengers, but as part complement." subjected to
the strictest Naval discipline, and being as it were
entrusted to our care; Their Royal Highness could
not have committed to the Navy a more precious
Then let us sLew that we appreciate this high
compliment to thle Service and express our loyalty
and most respectful admiration, by giving three
hearty cheers for the Prince and Princ-ss of Wales
-and mowsh5,rtil:/was this responded to. The Band
then played. God Save the Queen,and thecompany
having adjourned to a large marque where plenti-
ful refreshments were provided, the proceedings

t ried in London last week to Mr. Thomas Theobald

Thora. S. Reid, E.-ir., said --in th,. r-iurse -,f
the arrang-ement of to-d:iy'.b l .-ine::.., it hna fall.:-n to
my lo; to mo7i-, tihat the Rp':port whiMh you have just
listened to. be adopted, anl that it be printed anud
circulated. In ,',thee' word- thi-: rn-an.s that the
widc-it po-sibl, puhiciity le given to the aims and
objects of the .Le-iety, that. tlie Bern Judo 'ublicp
may know what las been donLe au:d how much more
remains to be ae.omplih.-d. I havi\e mn-n.. pleasure
in proposing this, because the S'.:,.i, i- 1l 7 itily ,iin-
mends itself to all Churri.hmn,. anwl;e it is,
yet to be more fully set forth ;: a uec's try bebe-
ficial agent in fuirtheiing th.: objects cf the Church,
to ensure that mnaz;uire of sniiec:s which it merits.
When it is remerimbered that tlis Society had its
origin at a time when commercial depression WHS
telling very widely, it need not be wondoerep at that
the results are yet comparatively small, in what has
been collected here, in what has been generously
contributed by loyal Bermudians abroad, and other
warm friends of the cause of the Church in these
Islands. But with the return of prosperity, which
many see approaching, we shall doubtless. reap a
corresponding increase of re.-r.urces. The Report

mentions that the subscription cards have not been
a success, and I think I can trace out the cause to
the want of effort to direct attention to theb Sceicty
in the various Parishes. It is not possible to draw
together, in one meeting, the class of people whose
sympathies should be enlisted. On a similar nceci-
sion I suggested that meetings micht. be held at,
convenient times in tlhe Parish School Houn'es. No
great results could immediately be expected, but in
time they would show. Little urchins, who mizht
disturb n.eetings, would learn that the Berinmuda
Church Society existed, and by and bye would
come to know what it meant, and would, most like-
ly, become active supporters. Meetings like this,
at high noon, could not be expected to prove suc-
cessful, and especially at a busy time of thie year.
The smallest effort must not be despised, every little
fraction tells up in the mass. The very Bermuda
we tread aptly illustrates this, being, as every one
knows, a coral formation, the aggregate of insect
building compacting a material whole. The be-
quest o, Mr. Samuel Salt us, though a substantial
benefit to this Society in perpetuity, to my mind is
of greater consequence from its demonstrating the
confidence which the late lamented gentlc.imau felt
in the objects of the Bermuda Church Society.
Mr. Saltus was a s6und Churchman, and a mer-
chant of keen judgment. If the Report contained
nothing else, that alone would suffice to give it a
special feature worthy of the widest circulation.
The Rev. Mark James said :-I rise to second

the resolution made, and to repeat. what I have
several times said, that the Society is Atrietly speak-
ing a layman's society. I could wish that the can-
vassing and collecting were taken out of the Rev-
tors' hands, and I should be pleased to be able to
assist in forming any system which would mire
effectually reach the people, which would relieve
the Rectors altogether, and which would throw the
power into the hands of laymen, who could work
with more confidence and with better results.
S. Brownlow Gray,Esq., said :--The Synod indeed
was happy in being moved to request your Lord-
ship to exercise Episcopal functions li re, and it
was still a happier day for Bermuda when you
found it posssible to accept the po-ition tendered.
Your arrival in January, put a terauination to a pe-
riod that proved one of no light anxiety. It gives
us, therefore, no little pleasure to have you htero

I have to thank Mr. Gray for the very kind ni',inn r
in which he hn.s been pleased to spenal of me. It i.-,
however, only expressing i nv,or.ds what I have
experienced from the day of my arrival amonr you
on every hind, and I would take this ,oppoir: n.ity .o.f
publicly ar-knowledging mv uratittit, for the w'armi
reception which you have giv'n me. I enn see no-
thing in your rulEs or pro:celinr!s in' (os',tet with
Church of England principles. and its chi. ts are
such as oemmend themselves to ni, I have ther- r-
fore no hesitation in .'cceping fl,. ...siti.. i t ndier-.l
me, because I find in your s-roiety no taint :.of pariy.
As a Bishop I could not ani woil.i unot If
with any party. Brought in crntn c. as I must n' -
cessarily be, with all classes anud all .shalt:-.. 'f opini.
on, it is. my duty to coni.idl:r and wcioTh cnrt fully
everything that comes before nme, solely witl a, view
to the material interests of the <_ hur:lT as a, whole.
Whatever party commended itself to ine while in
Enugland, whatever opinions found favour., I nut,
in my official character. considcrr only the Clhur'-h
what is best adapted to secTre her inmei'r:sts, and ex-
hibit no personal leanings. When. about thi.-s time
last year, I was approna'hcd on the subjrctr of r!,iun:
Bermuda under my charge, there exitc-'! in N w-
foundland considerable feeling, and the nuc-stin wn s
