Georgia is aglow with the new fever for direct
trade with Europe. The scheme comprehends
both an exportation of the surplus cotton, rice, and
lumber of the State direct to Europe, and an im-
portation in return of the manufactures of Europe,
and also immigration from Europe. It is upon the
benefits to the State of a large immigration that
the L.-;islature will be asked to vote an annual
appir.priation of $60,000 to the proposed line of
steamers from Savannah to Liverpool. The argu-
ment is that* Georgia is as inviting a place for
emigrants as the States of the West; the steam-
ship company agrees to bring emigrants for one-
half ihe price charged to New York, and all that
Georgia now needs is to provide the facilities foi
their coming. The Atlanta Constitution says: "If
we can once get the tide turned in this direction,
.Georgia will not only be the Empire State of the
South, but of the United States." Georgia's quiet
I:idustry in encouraging every scheme which will
'promote the prosperity of her people is a credita-

and landed shortly afterwards on the stairs at the

by Major-General Farren and staff, and the Heads
of the various Military departments. The wharves
were lined with spectators, who loudly cheered His

deaths caused by it increased steadily during the month
of November, rising from 19 at the end of the first week
to 23 at the end of the last. During the first two weeks
of December the number of deaths was 108, and dur-
ing the week ending December 9 the number of deaths
from diphtheria exceeded that from all other contagi-
ous diseases combined. Twelve per cent of the cases
under treatment have proved fatal, and the disease
strikes chiefly children between four and fifteen years of
age. The Board of Health have given special instruc-
tions to the medical officers and recommends isolation
of the cases. At present there is no hospital set apart
for the treatment of diphtheric cases, but such a build-
ing is looked upon by New York physicians as abso-
On the night of Wednesday last a young Don-
key, eight months old, belonging to Mr. Edward J.
Smith, of Warwick, was taken from the place where
it had been tied for the night into an old building
near by and its throat cut into the windpipe, and
left in that state, no doubt in the belief that it
would bleed to death before morning. The harm-
less little creature was found next day nearly dead,
with but poor chance of its living, although the
wound was sewn up. There is evidence *which
leads to the belief that a very fine young short-horn
Bull of much value was intended to be treated in a
similar way, but he must have proved more than a
match for the murderous perpetrator of such an
inhuman act. The Bull is owned by the Messrs.
Ed. J. Smith & Brothers.
It is to be hoped that if there is any one who
can give information which may lead to the con-
viction of the perpetrator of this inhuman act will
not hesitate to come forward. The author should
be hunted up that the community may be rid of a
character that would not scruple to take human
life in revenge for any wrong real or imaginary.-d.,
M EXIOANIsATIoN.-Lerdo, "the legal President"
of Mexico, now flying to San Francisco as a haven
of refuge, will be well received by the citizens of
the United States. As President of Mexico hb
has kept that Republic on good terms with this
one, and has done his best to give peace and order
to a country where civil war is the chronic con-
dition. Beyond his other claims on the sympa-
thies of our people, he is an exile, and that is enough
to procure for him the hospitality of Americans.
In return for the kind treatment he will be sure to
meet with in the United States he might be pre-
vailed upon to tell us what he knows of Mexicani.
nation. A few lessons on that subject from one
who is a most striking example of its operations
and effects might be very useful to Americans of
both parties at this time. For Mexicanization is
the inevitable, horrible result of trifling with con-
stitutions and laws, of the free indulgence of par-
tisanship, and the overriding of the civil power by
the army. The fugitive President could make his

oeable by pointing the moral of his own fate.s-Ny

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sni,-Will you kindly spare me a corner in your
next issue to give publicity to facts only, in reply
to a so-called Correspondent, whose letter appeared
in the Colonist of the 10th inst., (Signed A.) That
writer endeavours to cause a false impression on
the public mind with regard to the statements con-

the columns of the Times and Advocate of 6th inst.,
and which letter he wishes the community to be-

That letter I positively assert was not written by
any one connected with the Times and Advocate

BEET ROOT SUGAR IN FRANCE.-A Paris letter of
the 14th Dec., to the London Economist says :
The monthly excise returns of the production of
native sugar present more than usual interest at
this moment. That just issued, down to the end of
November, shows that the declared manufacture o
raw sugar from beet root since the commencemen
of the official year on the 1st September was 181,-
893 tons against 253,127 tons in the same period ot
1875. The alleged diminution in the saccharine
richness of the pulp is also confirmed, although not
to the extent pretended by the producers, the fall-
ing off being only from 8.8 degrees to 3.5. The
number of manufactories in working at the end of
November was 495 against 524 in 1875. The price
of sugar nevertheless, continueasto decline.
A feeble glimmer, like the passing day
Of Lapland summer; when I came again
And lingered on the spot where I had stood
And heard the music of her gentle voice
The thoughts of former days came back with power
The scene was little changed; the fields remained
Uncovered by the toil and skill of men
With docks and houses; then I sought the home
Where she had lived, but all the doors were shut,
The windows darkened and the garden walk
All rank with grass and weeds, the little jet
Which used to spurt so freshly brilliant chains
Of quick recurring dew-drops, and the stream,
Which made a mimic waterfall, and soothed
The ruffled spirit to a dreamy calm
Were choked and covered thickly o'er with moss,
The house contained no tenants, death and change
Had wrought within it; both her parents gone
The others scattered widely, she had joined
The Refuge of Saint Ann, a Home upreared
Of late by Christian zeal, amidst the lanes
And densest allies of the crowded Town
Sweet Sister Lucy was the name she bore
Amongst the Sisters, and in truth she went
With light around her into many a home
Where dreaded sickness had usurped a sway
She went unfearing where the fearful scourge
Of small-pox, and infection faint and foul
Drove even nearest kindred from the beds [soothed
Of those who suffered; whom she nursed, and
Their anguished brows with skilful touch, whose
Groaning with misery she comforted. [hearts
No morbid sickliness of soul had robbed
Her life of those delights which God has given
To mingle with the bitterness of earth
She still remained a pleasant social friend
A bright companion in life's joyous hours
Ready to work in any sphere which seemed
The path that GOD had shown. She lived to bless
She lived to comfort, and topminister.
There came a time of sickness to the town
Sickness which slew its hundreds in a day
Which made the grave familiar; and the hearse
An hourly passer through deserted streets.
Calmly those sisters worked amidst the gloom

ternational and foreign gendarmerie were somewhat
modified-those for fixing the boundaries of two
separate governships inBulgaria and allowing the
Turks only to occupy certain garrisons were drop-
ped. The question of surrendering Little Zwornik
to Servia is to be referred to arbitration. Other
minor alterations were agreed to. It seems that
these modifications are the result of the interview
between Lord Salisbury and Midbhat Pasha.

the Government would not rest until the Porte

THE SCHOOL TREAT.
Oppressed with thought, pensive, careworn and sad
I wandered to a spot where green lanes met
And lost themselves in hard and wheel-worn streets
Forming the arteries of a busy town
Not distant far a wide safe harbour lay
Which sheltered many strong and stately hulks
Of ocean giants; from a neighboring street
I heard a sound of music, and mine eye
Soon fell upon a long and winding line
Of merry children, for their yearly treat
Marching with sound of drum, and flying flags
To feast and play, but first with voices hushed
They passed into the church, and heard deep words
Of praise and blessing, joining with the choir
In hymns that spake of a fair Eden land,
A land of promise, where the gentle souls
Of little children blend in harmony
With stronger natures, where the weary rest
And where the soldier of the Cross lays down
His earthly weapons, donning brighter robes
The robes that shew the Victor, then my thoughts
Were turned upon the coming days in store
For those young hearts, the stern probation planned
For each, the pains, the griefs, the troubling doubts
The tempting's happening in the weakest hour
The truth seen darkly, all the air perhaps
Made faint and noxious for the soul, by sins
Of those who should be healers, guides, and priests
Priests of the household, by the right of age.
And as I pondered on these things the church
Echoed the Organ's loud concluding notes,
And as the children's voices fainter grew
And fainter, like a bubbling brook that runs
Through a deep vale, mid matted leaves and moss
And now and then gives forth a sharper sound
As some loose bed of pebbles breaks its course,
I stay'd behind, and gave my fancy rein
That it might bear me to the closing scene
Of some of those young lives.
I saw one lie, pure as the early drop
Of morning dew upon the rose bud, dark
Across her sunny infant face there fell
The shadow of the coming death, she knew
By some communion with the Heavenly world
The very moment that her soul should speed,
Up through the brightness, from the mists of earth,
I watched the shadow fall, 'twas like the cloud
That passes over the fresh springing grass
A bridge of darkness cast across a field
On each side light, and when her spirit fled
I knew that some strong Minister of GOD
Had borne it upward to the laud of bliss.'
Then passing to another house I saw
One with a hollow cheek and sunken eye
A weary, vacant gaze, a form low bent
With want and misery, he still was young
But yet his years were doubled by his griefs,
I did not speak to him of GonD's dread wrath,
Of stored up punishment, but opened wide
The glorious record of the love of Christ-
And as I poured into his thirsty soul
Full streams of love, and spoke to him of rest,
GoD's peace which passeth understanding fell
Upon his weary life-long troubled heart
And when he died the smile of peace remained,
And others I beheld pass through their youth,
Pass through their middle age, and reach the time
When earth is spread behind them, and the years
Drop one by one into the past, and leave
Only a little span, a little step
Before the end be reached; and then my thoughts
Rose to their higher life, a great delight
Took hold of allmy mind, the clouds of gloom
Which lately darkened o'er me were dispelled
I heard a voice proclaim GOD conquers all
And all creation's universal voice
Raises to Him a glorious peel of praise,
Man heads- the choir, showing in various forms
His ardent worship, some with inward thought
And deep soul-study, some with mystic signs
And various symbols, and the poorest life
Watched to its end would shew a final strain
Of worship. Thus in meditation sweet
I felt the calm of Heaven upon me fall
And passing from the Church entered the field
And mingled with the children.
There I met
One from whose deep dark eye, the beams of love
Fell upon all, no child but sought her smile
And purifying all the grosser thoughts
Of men whose hearts were sordid with earth's cares
The magic of her beauty fell around-
The aged people blessed her as she passed
And called her a bright sunbeam in their path
Spoke of her soft low voice, and how her foot
Came often to their doors, how, when the hand
Of GOD had laid them on a bed of pain,
She brought them comfort, telling them of Him,
Whose presence could illume the darkest night,
Not preaching and rebuking when their pains
Made them a little fretful, but with love
Shewing by word and deed the mighty love [feel
Which flowed from Christ, striving to make them
The present Heaven of a Christian life.
And quietly she walked along her course
With gentleness subduing every heart
And growing lovelier through the grace that fell
From daily acts of goodness.
Years fled by
After I saw her at the feast, my lot
Had carried me to distant busy scenes
Of human grief and pleasure, on my mind
The brightness of that time had only left
Ceaselessly toiling with true hearted men
To strengthen souls departing, with deep words
Of holy wisdom taught them by their Lord.
Lifting up earnest hands of prayer to Heaven
And joining in the sacramental feast
Which brings refreshment to the weary soul.
Sweet Sister Lucy laboured with the rest
And when the sickness was just passing on
To other districts, slaying in its course
She fell a victim, her sweet soul uprose
From its clay tenement to join the band
Of those whom she had tended, flowers were strewn
Over her simple grave, whereon a cross
Of marble, bore a golden wreath
"She is not dead but sleepeth" were the words
Written upon*it, and upon a scroll
"Blessed is the memory of the righteous dead."

The death of Cornelius Vanderbilt removes one of
the great figures of this generation. It is singular
that the three richest men in the country-the three
mbn. at least, who have been so held in popular es-,
. timation--should have died within so short a period.
Win. B. Astor, two months the senior of Mr. Vander-
bilt, died in November, 1875, while A. T. Stewart, 9
years his junior, died in April, 1876. These men
were all of mark, but Vanderbilt was the greatest
of them all. Mr. Astor showed the prudence neces-
sary to keep intact his vast inheritance-a rare power
in such a time of inflation and shuffling of values as
we have had since 1861. Mr. Stewart, kept in one
narrow path. He was a great merchant, and as a
merchant he lived and died. Toward the end of his
career he made a few whimsical investments like Gar-
den City, a hotel in Saratoga and so on; but they
were fancies, not deliberate business purposes, and he
never seriously turned aside from his calling. The
impression made upon the community by both Stew-
art and Astor was a faint one compared to the deep
mark of Vanderbilt. The Astor estate will go on and
on in the hands of the estimable gentlemen who in-
herit it, ond there is no reason why it should not con-
tinue for generations, until it becomes as vast as that
of the Westminster family in London, which it in
some respects resembles. The destiny of the Stewart
estate is a problem, as the only heir is a venerable
lady, and the business, the great source of its revenue,
has been transferred. The estate of Vanderbilt will,
it is presumed, remain in the possession of his eldest
son, who for a long time has been the coadjutor of his
Mr. Vanderbilt's character was that of a most re-
markable man. Astor was born to wealth and began
life under the tutorship of the celebrated Bunsen.
Stewart had some capital and a fine education. Van-
derbilt had nothing but the unconquerable will which
in time made him the foremast man of his class. He
was born to poverty and effort. His youth was bois-
terous and full of trial. He loved the sea and horse-
manship. When 16 years of age, and he became his
own master, he could sail anything under canvass
through the roughest seas, and could handle an
unbroken colt; but he could scarcely write his name.
Sixtysix years ago he sailed his first ferry boat from
Staten Island to the Battery. New York was then a
. City of 60,000 people, and steam was still a problem.
(Then he became the captain of a small steamer and
kept a hotel at New Brunswick. It is said of him
that he had no vices; that he was always at his post;
that he was a lucky man and saved his money. In
time he came to have many vessels, and when the war
broke out he was the largest owner of steamboats and
steamships in the country, and perhaps in the world.
His fame as a "commodore" had spread over the
world. He waq very rich, and, as he was nearly 70
years of age, it was supposed he would retire to the
enjoyment of his fortune. Suddenly he changed the
tenor of his whole business life. He withdrew from
shipping, to which he had been devoted for a half
century, and purchased a control of the Harlem, Hud-
son River and Central railroads. It was said that
this movement was but the morbid, irrepressible ac-
tivity of old age ; that it would end in ruin ; that he
should have stuck to his last and avoided new enter.
crises. But he knew himself better than his critics
new him. He became at once the great railway
King of the country. Roads which had been the
playthings of gamblers and the preserves of politicians
prospered under his hard, cold, daring management,
and, although we have passed through a period of un-
exampled prostration and depression in business, his
genius has sustained his railways. He leaves them at
his death in a better condition than when he became
their master, and he leaves them in the control of his
bilt is simple'and impressive. Courage in the per-
formance of duty enabled this man to become one of
the kings of the earth. The hardy, strong-limbed
boy who guided his vessel from ferry to ferry nearly I
70 years ago lived to be a ruler of men. He had no
advantages in his battle-no political, social, educa-
tional aid. It was one honest, sturdy, fearless man
against the world, and in the end the man won.|J
here was no poetry, no romance, no illusion in this
long, sterm, busy life.
He was simple and direct in his ways, knowing his
mind all the time, and ever going to his purpose like
a ball from a cannon. In time the world came to his
feet, and his old age was one of vast power and ever
increasing responsibilities. There are few kings
whose will was as potent as that of the simple citizen
who goes to rest in the tomb of his ancestors, on beau-
tiful Staten Island, and by the waters of the bay on
which he began his extraordinary career so many
years ago, an- which he loved so well.
THE SCENE OF RUIN AT ASHTABULA. I
EXTRACT FROM A PRIVATE LETTER.
I hAve been down to the wreck nearly all day
(Sunday). Eleven cars, or what is left of them,
with one engine, lie on and under the ice, clear
across the stream-a heap of scrap iron and charred
fragments of wood. The bridge from one abutment
to the other is a complete ruin. Hundreds are at
work clearing away the rubbish and bringing tim-.
bers for a new bridge. Thousands are drawn here
adrch of missing friends. One man came from
the West looking for his wife. A sleeve-button was
found which he Identified as having belonged to her,
at sight of which he burst into tears. No other
trace of her was found. An Irishman told me how
he pulled a ma ad wife out of a n and wife o burning car.
They were severely burned, but will recover. The
man, he said, pulled his cap from his burned and
blackened head and reverently thanked him for
saving the lives of himself and wife. One man
cleared himself from thesmashed car as soon as it
struck, found his satchel, overcoat, and cane, and
walked up the bank with a check in his hat. The.
messengers of both express companies (American
and United States) were killed outright. Poor
Purrington of Buffalo was my intimate, friend.
Both companies are represented by parties looking
for property which is scattered along the creek and
buried in the debris. There was a ton of matter in
the mail car. It was all from New-York City and
foreign bound west, largely to California. Only

I.ElRMUDA ROYAL GAZIETTI3.
(Continued from last Gazette.")
The question may fairly be asked, looking at the
obtrusive position of Russia in Turkish territory,
Has the internal administration of Russia been
such that its government can dictate a satisfactory
form of administration for her Southern neighbours
and is she moreover the country to see it carried
out P We much fear an examination of Russian
domestic rule would notinspire confidence, leaving
out of consideration the exceptional cases noticed
by Schuyler. Russia has been going on borrowing,
regularly paying interest stipulated and maintain-
ing her credit to a wonderful degree in the London
Market. The sudden decline in Russian securities
in London, and the incapacity of Dutch Bankers ren-
dered it impossible to float another loan, and re-
course has been had to a domestic loan, (100 millions
Roubles, 5 per cent issued at 92 last call April 1877,)
which in brief is a capitalizing of present circula-
tion and the issuing of more. And this device will
only meet urgent demands. Russia has gone on
building railways-mere military transports-with
English and other capital, works which cannot pay
at once and which do not possess sufficient rolling
stock to give the traffic development. There has
been in fact no honest statement of public accounts.
The Russian Navy amounts to little scarcely
worth noticing taking away the new ironclad
'Peter the Great," and fitted for little more than
harbour defence. The severe Treaty restrictions
have had something to do with this fact. The Rus-
sian Army, though numerically strong, is behind
the armies of Europe in organization and in equip-
ment. It must be remembered that the conditions
of war have varied immensely since the Crimean
struggle, promptness and enormous expense in a
degree not then possible. The Turkish Army has
vastly improved, the Turks are capital fighting ma-
terial if well officered, but their transport and ar-
tillery are defective. The Russians confronting the
Turks would have sterner stuff than they met in
1828 and 1829. The Turks possess a fleet more
formidable in appearance it is feared than in reality
if the delicate engineering movements be entrusted
to a pure Turk. The British Fleet now in the Me-
diterranean is as formidable a one as ever entered
any waters, Naval mismanagement" to the con-
trary notwithstanding., The army organization is
much improved, and in event of emergency more
than twenty thousand troops could be sent away
from England within a week. The position of
Austria with regard to any alterations in Turkey is
one of great trial. The dual constitution of the
Austro Hungarian Empire is a great source of
weakness in itself, but it is intensified by the diver-
sity of race. In the present crisis Austria occupies
a singular position. It is contrary not only to the
interests of Austria, and also of the German Em-
pire, that the Danube should cease to be a neutral
stream, being as it is the great water way of the
Empires. If Russia by conquest or by ac-
quired influence in the Balkan Peninsula should be
in a position to control the navigation of the Dan-
ube the results would be extremely unfortunate to
German and Austrian commerce. It is the interest
of Austrian Hungary to avert such a result, but the
sympathies of Hungary may militate against a po-
licy that would guard against this'contingency. It
is antagonistic to Austrian prosperity to see any suc-
cess attend Pan Sclavic propagandism. Austria's
hesitation, and consideration in later negotiations
show that Andrassy was on the alert not to be trap-
ped with Russian sophism. The military position of
Austria is much improved since the battle of Pa-
dowa, but her finances discourage war. The posi-
tion of Germany is a peculiar one. At a heavy cost
she has attained to Continental Hegemony and, at
a heavy cost, must retain it. We pointed out in
our last year's Summary how the vital energies of,
the country were injured by its enormous military
exactions, a tremendous burden on a country of
much greater wealth, for Germany cannot be con-
sidered a rich country. If Germany should cease
to maintain a friendly neutrality with Russia, there
is a danger that she might find herself in a fork be-
set on both flanks, with Austria not unwilling to see
Germany at least slightly curbed and Italy with
quite enough to do within her own borders. And
financially Germany is unequal to a struggle.
Germany has been accused of coveting Holland
and determined to seize on her the first golden op-
portunity. Prince Bismarck is astute enough to
know the delicate situation his country occupies,
and we may feel satisfied he will risk nothing in
any event that does not promise an abundantly
adequate return. The selfish indifference of Ger-
many excited surprise for some weeks though it
was long known that she strongly favoured Rus-
sian pretensions, when German interests were crop-
ping out. In order to meet her interest on loans
It has been decreed that Russian duties of Import
must be paid in gold-coupons being accepted in
payment and roubles being taken at fifty per cent
discount. This is practically adopting the expedi-
ents resorted to in the United States. The Russian
tariff is now very high and will be still further in-
creased by this means, and those most affected by
it will be a class of German traders along the fron-
tier. It is therefore not surprising to find an ex-
hibit of irritation in the German Parliament at
this hard Russian return for German friendship.
The shoe begins to pinch and the cry is that Rus-
sian friendship is growing costly. Similarly the
Manchester Chamber of Commerce argues 'that
English sympathy should run with Turkey and not
with Russia, that reciprocal feelings run in the cur-
rents of trade. During last year Russia exported
to England 20,000,000, but only imported 3,
100,000, last year's trade with Turkey was 12,-
900,000. It maybe said by not a few that England
can prosper and disregard other nations difficulties,
and though Bright and his followers urge this we
cannot see how they can hold their ground, however
desirable a one it may be to occupy. Without a
navy and without an aimy England with all her
advantages would cease to be even a first class
trading country. Our markets have been
opened by past wars and advantages accruing
therefrom and they are kept open by a strict and
just vigilance. The annual charges of military are
in fact an insurance premium on our national exist-
ence, and though of late years they have largely
increased, in proportion to the growth of national
wealth, the increase is disproportionate and much
less than that of less highly favoured Continental
Countries. The true policy of England is undoubt-
edly one of peace for in no part of the world can an
abnormal condition of things exist without sensibly
affecting a large class of British subjects. But
wherever necessary national reasons must dominate
over private interests. Italy has been accused of
a disposition to harass Austria, in the event of her
opposing Russia, by attempting to increase her ter-
ritory to the north. The authenticated and ru-
moured reports of the last six months have. been
most voluminous, and the European telegraph wires
have been prolific in news. The position of Turk-
ish finances has been unsatisfactory. An issue of
Paper to 3,000,000 Turkish was unauthorized and
2,000,000 have been absorbed. Though a small
per centage of the total is held in Turkish territory
it is worthy of remark that the Bondholders of
small sums in Turkey itself are very numerous,
having invested their earnings in the National
Debt. And therefore these people are interested in
the financial schemes which will improve their posi-
tion. Great attention has been given to Egyptian
finance in devising measures to provide for the
consolidation of debt, the appropriations of revenue to
its interest and redemption, and the just provisions'
for Government ordinary expenditure. Sir Stephen
Cave was accredited, after the purchase of the Khe-
dive'8 shares in the Suez Canal, to Egypt by the
British Government to enquire int o and report on i
Egyptian finance. On his return Mr. Rivers Wilson
was sent to Cairo as a sort of special commissioner,
and he is one of the three directors representing the
British Government in the Suez Canal Directorate,
qualified by the purchase of special stock, as
doubts existed whether the purchased stock with
detached coupons legally gave any right of voting
at meetings for the despatch of business. Great
Britain's acquiring a beneficial interest in the Suez
Canal has materially altered many conditions of
the Eastern Question, but renders more anxious
our defence of the Mediterranean navigation.
There are two classes of debts, the Khedive's debt
and the Public Debt, not clearly separable or easily
ascertainable. A number of suits are pending in
the mixed Tribunals. Mr. Goschen undertook in
company with a representative of the French cre-
ditors to enquire into and devise measures of relief.
His mission to Egypt occupied something less than
three months, and his object was to supplement and
render more practical measures previously devised.
His statements, too elaborate to entertain a meeting
of Egyptian creditors, will be printed, and there is
a hope that Egyptian stocks will work up to a va-
lue in time. It is foreign to our present purpose
and beyond our available space to enter into details
which are of financial interest. The resources of
Egypt are considerable, and with care even in a
moderate market ought to prove remunerative.
But there are no slight difficulties collecting taxes
in such a country, and many have based their cal-
culations on the conditions which exist in Western
The King of the Hellenes absented himself
from his dominions the greater part of the year
A ministerial crisis has occurred from a disin-
clination to increase military expenditure. The
Greeks have lost faith in Russia, who stimulated
the Bulgarian schism and had old endowments of
charity, bequeathed by Greek merchants from time
to time, secularized to t!he prejudice of the Greek
Church, and to the favouring of Pan Sclavic Pro-
pagandism. Greece would gladly acquire more
territory and unite more Greeks under her imme-
diate sway, but let her look to what she already has.
In' Italy we find nothing specially remarkable-
a ministerial crisis, a slight improvement in finan-
cial statements, a series of proposals for the G ov-
ernment to acquire the Alta Italian railways. In
Sicily there have been two cases of brigandage and
injurious insult practised on Englishmen, which
shew that the authority of the Italian Government
is-not yet in Southern Italy enforced with sufficient
and judicious power. Cardinal Antonelli, the Pa-
pal Minister, so well known during the events which
have created the present Italian Kingdom, is dead,
and Cardinal Simeoni comes in his room. The
appearance of the Pope in the Basilica of St. Peter's,
his first there since the Italian occupation, to re-
ceive the Spanish Pilgrims, is worth remarking.
The end of January saw the end of the Carlist
insurrection, when the siege of Bilbao was raised,
and a month later Don Carlos fled to France. The
return of the ex-Queen Isabella to Spain cannot be
favourably construed, and her son, the reigning
King, is under the influence of a non-progressive,
not to say intolerant, faction. An amount of reli-
gious freedom has prevailed in Spain since Isabel-
la's abdication, but under the 11th Article of the
present Constitution the police are practically clos-
ing up all places of Protestant public worship-
sign-boards, personal solicitations, and noise of
hymn and psalm singers being held as violations of
the law. In recognizing Alfonso our Ambassador
was warned by the Foreign Secretary to urge the
continuance of personal and religious liberty, which
the Spanish Premier assured Mr. Layard would be
continued. Lord Derby, in the midst of Oriental
complications, received a deputation at the Foreign
Office and recommended a local Spanish legal opin-
ion on the 11th Article, which appeared strained to
justify the causes complained of. Another debate
occurred in the Cortes and tilht Government were
largely sustained, demonstrating the retrogression,
which Spain has fallen into; and we are told by
those whose experience gives them authority to
speak that Russia, at the other extreme of Europe,
is almost equally intolerant in her own territory,
and Earl Russell prominently stated that as a rea-
son for discountenancing Russian authority in ex-
isting Turkey. Martinez Campos has succeeded
Concha in Cuba and hopes with his forces and skill
to" crush the insurgents, whose retreats and methods
of warfare, like the Carlists, make their subjuga-
tion difficult. But it may be doubted if really hon-
est efforts are made to quell disturbance, many
having interests to serve by a protracted.-series of
hostilities. It is to be regretted that a country like
Spain should lag behind in civilization.
In France the general elections held in January
resulted unfavourably to Buffet's Ministry, not-
withstanding Marshal McMahon's letter to the
French people that France required rest, which he
should insist on her having, and not to be disturbed
with extravagant theories. The elections were also
held for the popular representation in the Senate.
A new ministry was formed under the premiership
of M. Dufaure, who, honestly attempting to please
all, of course pleased none, and in December his
ministry resigned, an unexpected victory for the
extreme Left. The rock split on was the Burial
Bill, Member of the Legion of Honour, the Clergy
Bill, and the Estimates. It has been thought, had
Gambetta immediately succeeded Buffet, he would
either have been master of the situation more con-
servative, or would have been an ex-minister whose
influence too rapidly waned. An exhibition is
contemplated in Paris in 1878, the buildings project-
ed in the Champs de Mars and across the Seine. The
German Federal Council have declined to partici-
pate Marshal McMahon shews a laudable anxie-
ty for the advancement of France and may be said
to enjoy the general confidence of the people. But
occasionally he exhibits the sensitiveness which a
military man in such a position is almost always
prone to. The French Budget is satisfactory, but
no reductions can be made in taxes, as the three
years in advance shew little more than a balancing
of accounts. Some fears have been expressed by,
French vine growers that the phylloxera, an insect
known in Portugal, may continue to injure the
vines. The importance of vine culture in France-
may be understood by the large number of people
who depend on it for a living, estimated at 7,000,000.
A somewhat serious disagreement has occurred
between the ministries of Austria and Hungary on
the Bank question, and which will likely be com-
promised. The Austrian Bank was chartered by
Royal charter irrespective of Parliament, and the
Hungarians really never reorganized it. A com-
promise was arrived at between the two ministries
with reference to the extension of the present
charter modified or the creation of a new Bank
which, recognizing the debt which Austria owed
the Bank, established a branch in Pesth. This
agreement unofficially became public, the Austrian
Bank had declined it and the Vienna public dis-
liked it, while the Hungarian Ministry were not
disposed to listen to any modification as the agree-
ment had been drawn up by way of compromise.
In Germany we find nothing of striking moment
-some differential duties of impost are legalized
where the exporting country enjoys a bonus on its
export. This would meet the case of the French
sugar refiner, who has enjoyed special advantages
to the prejudice of the British refiners in British
markets. But the expected deficiency of French
beets, and owing to the manures used, a less per-
centage of saccharine matter may next year turn
the tables and bring West India grades again more
The commercial treaty between England and
France is now about to expire, and as its operation
has been mutually advantageous its renewal may be
looked for on something of the same terms. Previ-
ous to the treaty of 1860 England imported from
France 13 millions. Imports have now risen to 46
millions. Exports similarly have risen from 9 mil-
lions to 27 millions.
A most important public work has been opened
in Holland, the North Sea Canal, planned by Sir
John Hawkshaw and carried out by Henry Leo &
Sons, who were the contractors for the Dover Pier.
This supersedes the North Holland Canal made in
1819. Amsterdam is thus brought within about 15
miles'of the sea at a more easily accessible point.
An artificial harbour has been constructed and consi-
derable land has been made from the dredging and
water channels more effectually secured. The work
presented many engineering difficulties and has
cost about 37 millions of florins.
We have spoken of the interest attaching to the
Prince of Wales's visit to India, and we give the
following summary of His Royal Highness' move-
ments. October 11th, 1875, the Prince crossed by
the Castalia" via Calais to Paris; arrived at Brin-
disi on the 16th, and, visiting Athens en route, he
landed at Ismailia and paid a three days' visit to
Cairo, again embarking at Suez on board the Se-
rapis," which reached Aden Nov. 1st and Bombay
Nov. 8th. 13 ships-of-war and less than 200 mer-
chantmen of all kinds welcomed His Royal High-
ness. On the 25th he embarked for Ceylon, calling
at Gou, arriving at Colombo Deer. 1st. Crossing
from Ceylon he proceeded by rail to Madras, em-
barking on the 18th Deer. for Calcutta, where he
arrived on the 23rd Deer. The Prince left Calcutta
for Bankipore on Jany. 3rd. On the 5th Benares
was reached, and Lucknow next day, where he
remained till the 10th, and stopping a few hours at
Cawnpore reached Delhi on the 11th. On the 16th
he left Delhi for Lahore; Jummoo 20th-22nd on a
visit to the Maharajah of Cashmere. Wuzeerbad,
Agra, Umritsur next visited. Jany. 31, visit to the
Maharajah Scindia at Gwalior, and afterwards a
three days' visit to the Maharajah of Jeypore.
Feby. 7, departure from Jeypore on return to Agra,
thence by rail to Moradabad, whence lie journeyed
to Mynee Tul in Kumaon and entered the Terai or
wilderness of the Nepaul frontier for three weeks'
tiger and elephant shooting as a refresher after a
rapid series of state progress. On March 3rd the
Prince travelled by rail to Cawnpore, visiting the
Maharajah of Indore, and on the 11th March he
reached Bombay, whence he embarked in the Se-
rapis" on the 13th March, reaching Suez on the
25th March and Cairo the same evening. On the
3rd April the Prince sailed from Alexandria for

Her Majesty opened Parliament in person, the
Lord Chancellor reading the Royal Speech, and on
the 16th August unveiled at Edinburgh the eques-
trian statue of the Prince Consort. The labours of
Parliament were protracted but many measures
which had been advanced important stages were a-
I abandoned, such as the OxfordUniversityBill. A per-
manent Shipping Act to take the place of Plimsoll's
Compromise Bill of 1875-was-passed. The Education
Bill absorbed a great deal of time. Special atten-
tion was given to the Local Government business
in reference to Government advances, the income
being as 1 to 3 and compared with the National
*Debt as l to 10. Parliament desires to exercise a
more direct supervision over all public works
through the Local Government Board-which bor-
rows money on the most favourable terms and loans
out at a slight advance to the Municipal Authori-
ties, over which it claims a due inspection. This is
preferable to the authorizing by special acts a gen-
eral expenditure without any guarantee of suffi-
cient value being apparent. The enactment res-
pecting the appellate jurisdiction of the House of
Lords is one of great importance, and under it
the Lord Chancellor with the two; new Lords of
Appeal in Ordinary, Lord Blackburn and Lord
Gordon, met for the first time on the 21st Novem-
ber, pursuant to a motion of the Lord Chancellor,
before the prorogation, that the House of Lords,
should meet on that day for the purpose of hearing
appeals. The discussion in 1856 on the Wesley-
dale life peerage and the results need not here be
noticed. Suffice it to say that a peculiar modifica-
tion of opinion has since arisen on the question
and that the powers of the present life law Peers
Share circumscribed. In fact the new law life Peers
are merely ex officio members of the House of Lords
while that house retains the ultimate hearing of all
legal questions, and such Peers of Parliament as
* have held or are at the time holding high judicial
positions are also eligible to sit with the Lord
Chancellor. This gives at present nine Lords of
Appeal in the Upper House. Appeals may now be
heard whether Parliament is or is not in session and
by special letters patent during a dissolution. Ar-
rearages are thus less likely to accumulate and
suitors will have more satisfaction. In 1873 Lord-
Selborne introduced a Bill abolishing after a cer-
tain time the appellate jurisdiction of the House
of Lords. Next year the project was abandoned,
the Scotch and Irish specially objecting. In 1875
Lord Cairns attempted to carry the measure, but
the opposition of English Lawyers that the benefits
would be lost if intermediate and final Courts of
Appeal defeated it, and in 1876 we have the old fic-
tion retained with practical working machinery.
On the 3rd April the Chancellor introduced his
budget estimating revenue ,at 77,270,000, and ex-
penditure 78,044,000, the income tax was raised to
3d, under 150 exempt and on incomes between
150 and 400 the abatement extended to 120.
The general depression in trade caused some anx-
iety about the Revenue, which has however shown
more elasticity than was anticipated though it ex-
hibits signs of commercial stringency. The low
rates of discount, and the difficulties capitalists
have experienced in using capital at all, have shewn
conclusively the inert condition of. business gener-
ally. The very Foreign loans which are now crip-
pling many, gave a stimisulus for the time being to
trade. Coal and iron industries are now much de.
pressed, so that incomes heretofore large have been
seriously curtailed. And when we chronicle the
failure through rough weather of the Scotch Her-
ring Fishery, producing 25 per cent less this year
than last, with many more engaged in it, it will be
seen how trying a year 1876 has proved to almost
every class in the community. The Duke of.Mal-
borough-succeeds the Duke of Abercorn as Lord
Lieut. of Ireland with seeming satisfaction 'to the
people. The Conservative Government usually get
credit for their judicious selections. After a year
and a half seeking satisfaction for the murder of
Mr. Margaray, Sir Thomas Wade has obtained the
signing of a protocol by Li-Hung-Chang, "the
greatest official and ablest man in the Empire,"
who visited Admiral Ryder's flagship off Qhefoo.
We must pass over the Transvaal War in South
Africa, merely stating that Sir Bartle Frere's ap-
pointment gives good promise. A few figures on
the silver question may be acceptable. Previous to
1862 the total annual yield was 8,000,000, none
from the United States; in 1874 it had risen to
13,400,000, of which 6,400,000 alone came from
the United States, and it being estimated that the
Comstock lode in Nevada would produce in 1875
9,000,000, the silver market became sensitive.
But it seems the yield of the Comstock lode turned
out 5,000,000 which will be absorbed by the wants
of the American Treasury. And the uncertainties Ferdinand Freiligrath, a German Poet, who

many as there are variations in the constitutional
peculiarities of different persons. It is to those we
must look in determining the
Treatment.-The patient must be kept in bed with
some covering, but no more than is agreeable to him,
or than the season may require; he must be kept
as tranquil and quiet aa possible. He may have
as muchwater or milk to drink as he desires, and
if he can take nourishment it is as well for him to
have all he wishes. Never force a patient to take
food. Food taken against the inclination will not
be~digested and is only a hindrance to recovery.
The vital forces, so necessary to combat disease,
become employed in disposing of the substances
forced upon the stomach, and which are really ly-
Ink there a foreign body undigested. A most im-
portant, and at times quite a difficult task, is the
ventilation of the sick room. All so called disin-
fecting agents, except charcoal, must be banish-
ed from the apartment. The patient requires the
freshest obtainable air, and all disinfecting agents,
exceptingcharcoal communicate their qualities to the
air to be inhaled by the sick; the most dangerous
of these agents is carbolic acid. After the patient
has been properly cared for our first duty is to find
and collect all his symptoms, both mental and phy-
sical, local and concomitant. We begin with the
mental symptoms, then take up the local affection
of this or the other part of the throat, find out the
quantity and quality of the exudations, in short, as
a cure is only made by treating not the disease, but
the patient, there can be no better advice given
how to examine the sick than is found in Hahne-
mann's Organon, sections 84-99. Having obtained
a record of the patient's symptoms, we must endea-
vour to find a remedy that not merely corresponds
with the characteristic symptoms of diptheria, but
that corresponds with the symptoms of the indivi-
dual patient as we find them. Recurring combi-
nations of symptoms frequently occur, and when
they do re-appear the same remedy may be given.
I will now give such groups of symptoms, with
their corresponding remedies, as clinical observa-
tion in the treatment of this dreaded disease, es-
pecially during the past summer and autumn, has
Apis mel.-The first diptheritic patches generally
appear on the arches of the palate and on the uvu-
la, which is edematous and elongated. The
urinary secretions are entirely suppressed or there
is excessive albuminous urine; deglutition is very
painful; heat is very unpleasant to the patient.
Great restlestness with an uncontrollable tossing
about, and trying to get off the bed. This form is
frequently found in combination with scarlet fever.
Arsen. album.-When the advanced septic form
appears. Great fetor from the diptheritic deposits,
and oozing of blood from under their elevated edg-
es... Great thirst; inclination to be warmly cov-
ered. Restlessness; although very weak, the pa-
tient desires to have his position, and even the bed
or room frequently changed.
Belladonna.-The patient complains, from the on-
set, of much dryness in the throat and great pain in
swallowing. The glands of the neck swell at once,
the throat looks red, the neck becomes stiff. The
patient is very drowsy, his head is hot and painful,
the skin dry and hot, the pulse rapid. These symp-
toms are found in the incipient stage of nine out of
ten, cases of the disease, and under such circum-
stances it may be entirely prevented from further
development, even though there be diphtheria cases
in the same house.
In circumstances, when an attenuation of this
remedy cannot be had, it will doubtless prove cu-
rative if a drop of the tinctwt ise placed in a half-
tumblerful of water, and~ teaspoonful given to the
patient every hour,
Kali Bichromr--The patient is in an almost un-
conscious cgMaition; when aroused from it, or when
awaking from apparent sleep, he complains most
(sap3e as Lachesis.) He often awakens with a de-
S .sire to cough, or to hawk up detached portions of
S tlhedeposit. While making this attempt he throws
off.tough, ropy, yellow, discolored mucus. The
fetor is very great; the deposits cover the throat,
tonsils, uvula, and even roof of the mouth, and are
of grayish.yellow color. The patient becomes
hoarse, indicating the extension of the disease to
the larynx and air passages. The tongue is either
quite red or is covered with a thick yellow sub.
stance. ,The (right) parotid gland is much swol-
len, and, upon deglutition, the pain shoots up to
ear and down the neck of the affected side.
Kalibichrom will correspond to the form of dies-
ease in which the vegetable parasite found in the
deposit resembles the spirobacteria. -
Kali permang.-The symptoms calling for this
remedy resemble those just detailed, with two ex-
ceptions. There is more fetor of the breath; and
the pain shooting up to the ear (characteristic of
Ka(i bich.) is wanting.
These two remedies have been called for in at
least three-fourths of the developed cases met with
during the present year; and I have found the
lower protencies to be the most efficient. The Kali
bich. bichromatee of potash) should be given in the
third decimal trituration, two or three grains dis-
solved in: a half-tumblerful of water, and a tea-
spoonful given every hour (to a child.) The other
(the permanganate of potash) is curative in even
more material quantities, and when the proper po-
tency cannot be got, a grain of the crude salt may
be dissolved and administered as just directed.
Mercurius iod.-The deposits begin on the arches
of the palate; glands of the neck swell very rapidly ;
there is a general condition of edema of the throat
Nitric add.-Much pain In swallowing; stoppage
of the nose with discharge of acrid fluid and hoarse-
Fhytolacca.--Great head-ache, violent aching in
the back and limbs, great prostration; when rising
up ia bed, gets faint and dizzy.
Phytolacca has but few symptoms, but every one
is pure gold. I believe it to be curative in any po-
tency, from the first upwards.
Bromine.--In that justly dreaded form of the
disease, when the larynx is invaded, and the omin-
ousesounds of croup are heard, Bromine is the only
remedy which I have found curative. It should be
used in the second or third decimal dilution; five
drops in a half tumblerful of water, a teaspoonful
The above are the remedies that have been called
for in nearly all the cases that have occurred dur-
ing4the year now passing away. It is to be regret-
ted that a knowledge of their inestimable powers
was not more widely diffused.
Stimulants are called for only when death is threat.
ened from paralysis of the heart. They should;then
be given, if the. stomach will bear them, in small
doses, frequently repeated, and persistently. The
practice of giving stimulants in every case indis.
criminately deserves the severest reprobation.

HINTS ABOUT BUYING A HORSE.--First, look at the
horse while standing still in the stable. If he seems
to rest one foot, look that leg from top to bottom;
see if he has any splints, spaving, puffs, windgalls,
or cubs, or if he is knee-sprung, and if his hip-cap
is down, for in fat horses this sometimes hardly
shows. Next, his eyes, if they look weak and he is
young, it may be caused by what are commonly
called blind teeth." If this is so his face will be
thick, and they can easily be found by looking just
in front of first grinders, and should be pulled,
with common forceps, or punched out. The first
is preferable, as you can't get the roots every time
by punching. Next, look at his coupling, and if be
hips up well. By placing your ear to his breast,
you can usually ascertain if his wind is good,
after a little travelling. Next, see if he stands
straight on his feet, or if he stretches himself while
standing. It is a great mistake to want to see a
horse on the move all the time. You can learn
twice as much about a horse standing still as while
moving. Far better back a horse than see him go
forward; for if stiff, there is where he will shew it,
and that is what will tell on his shoulders, if they
have been hurt at any time. If you wish to buy,
ride the horse yourself, for the owner knows the
gait that his horse moves best in, and you can tell
by the motion of the horse, if you are on him, whe-
ther there is anything the matter with his travel or
not. I could add more if I thought necessary.-

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Tuesday, January 16, 1877.
HALIFAX, N.S., 26th December, 1876. 1
To the Editor Bermuda Royal Gazette.
SIR,-No doubt many of your readers will he
glad to hear something of the two gallant regiments
which have lately arrived here from your beautiful
Islands. It must be confessed that the reception
experienced by them was of the most chilling char-
acter. The day the 20th (the Minden Yellers) ar-
rived, the 29th November, was a most beautiful
one, clear and bright, but with a cutting nor-wes-
ter. Many citizens in the afternoon wended their
way to the Dock Yard to witness the landing, fors
it is not the oldest inhabitant only who can rememni
ber a former disembarkation of this regiment. It.
was decided however to postpone the landing until
the next morning at ten o'clock, when those who
did not mind thd'biting cold, nor the blinding dust,
were gratified by seeing one of the finest looking
regiments which ithas .ever been the fortune of
Halifax to have in its garrison. The 87thR. I. F.
embarked the following day and after a residen-.e
of four years and a half, left us with a record of
good behaviour to be euvie.l by any of Her Majes-
When the time approached for the expected ar-
rival of the 97th it was remarked that they were
about to enjoy milder and perhaps pleasanter wea-
ther than did the 20th. After a foggy day Friday
night the 1st December cleared beautifully, and the
Tamar anchored off George s Island, and next
morning moved up to the Dockyard jetty. The
day was anything but a promising one. In fact
when the band of the 60th Royal Rifles moved out
of the citadel for the purpose of playing the 97th
to their quarters, rain was actually beginning to
fall. However at two o'clock everything was in
readiness for the regiment to move off, and headed
by the bands of the 20th and 60th they marched to
the glacis barracks which had been evacuated by
the band and two companies of the 6(0th. Rather
close packing for a regiment of nearly 700 men.
Hardly had they been housed and made as comfort-
able as circumstances would admit. when there hap-
pened a sudden change of weather. Down tumbled
barometer and thermometer, till the latter registered
the almost unusual score with usiof 60 below the
cipher, which combined with a raging norther
rendered the cold all the more intense. It was dur-
ing this night that one officer at least tof the 97th
received his "baptism of fire," for towards morning
a fire broke.out in one of the most populous portions
of the city, which at one time threatened destruc-
tion to a large area. This officer wa's particularly
active in arousing the sleeping inmates of the birn-
ing houses, and after the arrivaLof the firemen, and
notwithstanding he had lost his cap, continued to
labor hard in the work of removing property to a
safe distance. All honor to the brave man. ,
A few facts in connection with these t wo. regi-
ments may be of interest to some of your readers.
It is now nearly thirty years since the .20th lay in
this garrison, consequently it could not be expected
that any of the officers who were then attached to
it could now be serving in it. Yet there is one fa-
miliar face to be seen among the officers ; that of a
captain who was an ensign here in the 4th Kings
Own Royals not many years since.
The 97th left here m May 1853 and of the regi-
ment which left in almost full strength, there only
remain Lieut.-Col. Annesley who was then Lieut.
and a Sergt. (Smith) at that time a drummer. Our
citizens feel that Colonel A. has more claims to
their hospitality than many other officers, for by
his marriage he has connected himself with the fa-
milies of two of our former popular Governors, viz.,
the late Lieut. Genl. [Sir Colin Campbell, K.C.B.,
and the present Marquis of Normanby. Although
this regiment now possesses only two of those who
left our shores more than twenty-three years ago,
there are still a number of pensioners residing here
who formerly belonged to it, and these to the number
of forty-three took an early opportunity to call
upon the commanding officer, who expressed great
pleasure in again meeting these veteran celestials.
One of these pensioners is quite proud that a nep-
hew of his whom he never before saw, is the pre-
sent Quartermaster of the regiment. On the day of
the landing of the 97th Mri. P.... D...., who car.
ries on a business whose profits are almost entirely
derived from the military, attended at the Dock-
yard, and made himself known to the regiment as a
former drum-major, when he was greeted with
hearty cheers, and some enthusiastic ones even carried
their admiration so far as to shoulder this veteran.
In conversation with some of the late arrivals they
one and all are delighted with our splendid climate
(think of that ye 87th) with the thermometer down
among the units and a level fourtQen inches of snow.
There seems to be the usual mismanagement con.-
nected with the arrival of these regiments. In the
first place the season was much too far advanced to
bring them to this cold country after several years
service in the tropics, and while the 20th look com-
fortable and at home in their high-boots, the 97th
have not yet been served with those useful articles,
which would be all the more comfortable after the
late snow storm. The health of the troops so far
however is good, and only two casualties to report,
one the death of a soldier of the 20th from typhoid
fever it is said, the other the fracturing of a leg of
an orderly of the 97th by falling on the icy streets
which for a long time were smooth as glass. In
connection with the subject of slippery streets, this
communication may as well be concluded by rela-
ting a joke which will bear the telling. The Fusi-
liers and no doubt others of your readers know the
instrument worn by soldiers, and for that matter by
civilians also who are not certain of their footing
on the treacherous ice. The use of these articles
for many winters has so indented the floors of the
Wellington Barracks as to present a rather curious
appearance to the uninitiated. An officer of the
20th in taking possession of his quarters was parti-
cularly struck by this phenomenon, and the follow-
ing dialogue took place between him and a Sergt.
of, ijthe Fusiliers.
Officer. Ah Sergeant what are those remark.
able perforations there (pointing to the holes in
the floor.) :
Sergeant. Those Sir P (surprised.) Why those

Officer. Creepers! ah, horrid creatures! Can
nothing be done to rid the barracks of the loath-
some vermon. Exit Sergt. suddenly, and in time
to safely indulge in a mild guffow at the innocence
of his superior officer.
It is to be hoped that this fastidious gentleman
has become by this time acquainted with the repti-
lia of this country, and that he is more comfortable
with than without their company.
