Tli v.-rnt i i mithe rumour that has been in circulation

sistance of a Coadjutor, and feeling that he could not
faithfully and satisfactorily perform the responsible
duties of his high office, over such extensive and vari-

and the Labrador, in, his rather delicate state of
health, determined to resign the See in July next.
We also learn that Bishop Kelly has stated it to be

An Inquest was held in Hamilton Parish, on the 31st
ultimo, before Denis Tucker, Esqr., Coroner, on view
'of the body of Sarah Elizabeth Trott, a colored woman,
who fell dead on the morning of above date.
After receiving several depositions, which, however,
did not account satisfactorily for the sudden death, the
Coroner suggested a post-mortem, which was accord-
ingly made by T. A. Outerbridge, Esqr., M.D. On
opening the body it was found that death resulted from
an extensive rupture of the left wall of the heart, caused
by frici i..r of the liver, which was greatly enlarged.
This was the first case of the sort that had come to Dr.
Outerbridge's notice during his long practice. Verdict
---Death from natural causes.
A fatal case of Yellow fever had occurred on board
therv'.ivinz ship Aboukir, at Port Royal, Jamaica,
very re,'-.tly. The victim was a fresh arrival, only
two months- on board as steward's assistant. There
was no fever in either Port Royal or Kingston, and the
inference is that it originated in the Aboukir, which
says the Army and Navy Gazette, It is no exaggera-
tion to say, is in a state of decay from truck to keelson,
from stcm to stern." Persons recently returned to En-
'gland'from Jamaica, state that at times the smells
an-ini.:' from her hold are most offensive. The officer
in command of the troops had given orders forbidding
the troops having any communication with the vessel.
The Commodore at once directed a board of
medical officers to report upon her sanitary condition,
anil since the vess 1 was condemned long ago and has
been rotting ever since, it may readily be imagined
that the result of the medical inquiry is not too reassu-
ring." Thie Urgent has been preparing, since the
Aboukir's condemnation, at Portsmouth Dockyard, to
We published on 23rd January, the particulars of a
suit, taken from the New York Herald, John W. Ham-
ilton vs. Jacob Lorillard, to recover the sum of $350
due as salary. Mr. Hamilton writes to a friend here,
that he will pay every cent due in Bermuda, if necessary
from his own ,purse, but is awaiting the result of the suit
spoken of-trusting that he will be in funds from that
to pay his creditors here. The further hearing in the
case was postponed to 2nd April for the return of the
sleamer North Point, when the counsel of Mr. Hamilton
alleges he will prove Mr. Lorillard's liability for his
debts contracted in Bermuda.
Under tie heading" M-rcantile Misfortunes," the
New York ilerald of the 1st instant gives a list of
32 failures of mercantile firms that have taken place
in that city during the month of January last with
liabilities amounting to $1,650,729. Within the

in their ranks, and the Compromise Bill was pre-
pared by one of their leaders and supported by
enough of the rank and file to carry it. The De-
mocrats were not a unit, either, in its support.
Some of them, like the Republicans, thought that
the right to decide in this disputed election was
sufficiently fixed and clear. They did not think,
like the Republicans, that the right was lodged in
the Republican Senate, but claimed that it belong-
ed to the Democratic house, and the opponents of
the Bill insisted that if the duty or right to decide
the dispute was imposed on, or given to, either or
both houses, it could be delegated to no commission,
or any other Tribunal, fixed or casual.
The bill was, therefore, in all respects and truly,
a compromise, and as such it meets the approval of
the people, as well as of the majority of politicians.
It is a great relief to see some mode of adjusting a
difficulty which no government could bear without
a strain. The politicians and the men who aspire
to statesmanship were at fault, and their ark of re-
fuge, the constitution, gave no clear or explicit
sound to guide them. The Compromise Bill has
parted the turbulent waters of controversy and
shown a safe way out of their dangers. It is an
expedient, but only an expedient seemed practic-
able. It is to be hoped that no impediment to the
action of the commission will present itself, and

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
A plan for settling the dispute over the late elec-
tion in the United States has been reached by the
joint Committee of the two houses of Congress. A
Bill has been passed to carry out this plan, and the
prospect is good for an early adjustment of the
difficulty. A commission has been constituted
composed of fifteen members equally distributed
between the House of Representatives, the Senate,
and the Supreme Court of the United States, for
the purpose of arbitrating and deciding the contro-
versy. The Bill provides for the appointment by
each branch of Congress of its quota of the Commis-
sion; it names four of the five judges who are to
belong to it, and leaves to these four the selection
of the fifth. The Senate being Republican in its
majority and officers, the Senators will be three
Republicans to two Democrats. The House of
Representatives being democratic in its majority
and officers, the Representatives on the commission
will be three Democrats to two Republicans. The
four designated Judges are equally divided between
the parties, and the fifth to be chosen by them must
be a Republican. The questions to be passed upon
have been so discussed and considered during the
past three months, that it is very hard for any man
in public life to be without opinion or bias. The
two houses of Congress have placed their best men
on the commission, most of them being lawyers of
learning and experience who may be able to deal
impartially with the case. But it is hardly expect-
ed. that they will. The doctrines which underlie
the dispute, rest as much in law as they do in poli-
tics; and in defining the rights and liabilities of the
states within their own sphere, or in their relations
to the general government, it is not easy to find a
difference between a judicial opinion and apolitical
one. The theory of politics, like the reasoning of
law, looks to the same authorities, the same prece-
dents, the same history, one only being more elastic
than the other in observing and applying the rules
to which both refer. On the few broad questions
which distinguish and make parties, it is, therefore,
no reproach to say of those who consider them phi-
losophically rather than as partisans, that their
political, legal, and even, judicial opinions must be
the same. Thus, while it is assumed that all the
politicians on the commission, who are not judges,
will decide for Hayes or Tilden according to their
party faith, it is also assumed that the decision of
the judges may be forecast by the same test, and
that the decision after all rests with the fifteenth
man, the fifth judge to be selected by his four
brethren. It will be pleasanter if this expectation
is disappointed. The judges are all experienced in
their high office, and the judicial habit disposes to-
ward impersonality, so that the opinions of the man
are forgotten in performing the duties of the judge.
If Senators and Representatives cannot slough off
the antagonisms of the former from which they come
to this grave arbitration, the judges, at least, should
not lose their impartiality in the change of juris-
The Compromise Bill, as it is called, though
passing both Houses by large majorities, and im-
mediately approved by the President, did not go
through without opposition. No stratagem was
used to delay it, as to be of any use, it had to be
passed at once. But it was debated with great
ability. The contingency it was designed to meet,
had been long foreseen. It was known that the
constitution had made no sufficient provision for
deciding the differences in a close election. It has
been the practice, since the foundation of the Gov-
ernment, for the Vice President to count the votes,
and his action had grown to be considered and taken
as judicial and final. But this has been in cases
where the result of the election was certain, no mat-
ter what might be done as to particulars of the ag-
gregate vote. It was deemed, nevertheless, that
the practice was without authority, and at different
times, and by different measures of legislation, pro-
posed rather than perfected, efforts have been made
to define the powers of the Vice President and of
the two houses of Congress in counting the electoral
votes. The present emergency found no existing
legislation on the subject. The Democrats claimed
that the House of Representatives had co-ordinate
rights with the Senate in counting the votes. The
Senate claimed the right of counting, and of decid-
ing questions arising on the count, as belonging to
its presiding officer, the Vice President, and there
seemed no tribunal to decide the question ; certainly
none to decide it as speedily as it was necessary to
have it decided. There were more Democrats than
Republicans who voted for the bill, though the
disparity was not very great, and the Republicans
furnished the ablest and warmest advocates of the
measure. The Republicans felt that the advanta-
ges of the position were with them, and so, no
doubt, did the Democrats. The practice, almost if
not quite uniform in such cases, gave to the Vice
President, or that office being vacant as now, to the
President of the Senate, who is a Republican, the
control of the counting of the votes. The returns
from the disputed States were in form for Hayes,
or in such form that they could be consistently
counted for him; and to go behind these returns,
and to question their validity, would be against the
doctrines of the Democrats who are always jealous
of any federal interference with state rights or au-
thority. The trouble of the Republicans was that
many of their number doubted the constitutional
right of the Vice President to perform the duties
which he had been accustomed without conflict to
perform; and they were not convinced of the entire
fairness of the returns which in legal forms elected
their candidate. There was, therefore, a division

DATES OF THE 1ST, FEBUARY.
The Eastern question presents nothing of inter-
est this morning. No new fact has been brought
to light, and no new feature in the diplomacy of any
of the Powers interested directly in the question
has been developed, so that the newspapers have
nothing to speculate upon. The subject is be-
coming threadbare, and yet Europe still waits with
bated breath, not knowing whether the spring may
bring on a war with all its horrors, or whether the
inevitable struggle may be postponed for a year or
two. If present indications are to be relied on
Russia seems anxious that Servia and .Montenegro
should make peace with the Porte, but whether
sha intends that peace to be 'lasting or not is not
A Russnan Advocacy of Peace in Servia.-A des-
patch from St. Petersburg says :-The Golos says no
sensible Russian can desire a renewal of the Servian
war. The advance of the Turks to Belgrade would
disturb friendly relations between the Powers which
now constitute the only basis upon which influence
can profitably be brought to bear upon Turkey. If,
on the other hand, Servia obtains peace on satisfac-
tory conditions the task undertaken by the Powers
of settling the difficulties will be considerably facili-
A New Russian Plan.-A Berlin despatch says
that after much hesitation Russia seems to have
decided upon a peculiar plan. The present state of
things, which is neither peace nor war, is to be inde-
finitely prolonged. Russia does not care to encoun-
ter the Turkish troops 'in their present condition,
nor does she wish to abandon the campaign alto-
gether. She trusts she can support the strain of pro-
longed mobilization better than Turkey.
The troops to be kept an the Frontier -She will,
therefore, keep troops jn the frontier, thus com-
pelling Turkey to do the same. If Turkey follows
Russia's example it is expected that before many
months the people will demand peace at any price
because of the consequent financial collapse.
The Pruth probably to be Crossed.-If, however,
Turkey in desperation decides to anticipate a Rus-
sian attack, the Russians are sufficiently confident
of the result, as they would then fight in their own
country. The Russians, in order to redouble their
pressure on Turkey, will probably cross the Pruth,
if not immediately at least at a latter stage.
Preparing for the Ultimate Struggle.-It is not
likely she will attempt,- the l)anube until Turkey's
fighting spirit is sensibly diminished by delay.
With a view to these contingencies the Russian
army is continually being increased, while all the
Southern fortresses are being made ready for de-
fence. It is because of these circumstances Turkey
thinks it necessary to ask Servia for guarantees
against -participation- i a possible resumption of
Russian efforts to raise Money.-A Vienna corres-
pondent reports that Russia has made fresh but
unsuccessful attempts to raise a loan in Amsterdam
and Germany, and will be obliged to have recourse
to the increase of her floating debt and issue treas-
Arming fora Great Struggle.-Russia is employ-
ing her time well. War preparations are continued
with energy, and on a larger scale than before.
Nothing has been done hitherto which would in-
dicate that the beginning of a war is very close at
hand, but the preparations leave no doubt of the
determination to follow up the war if it breaks out.
The reserve observed hitherto and the feverish ac-
tivity in arming may be taken as a tolerably sure
sign that Russia will not speak until she is quite
prepared for any contingency which may follow.

The Eastern Question-Vehement Anti-Turk-

LONDON, January 27.-Mr. Gladstone, in a speech
at Taunton to-day, said : We ought to mind our
own business, and why we should mind the East-
ern Question is because ve chosen to make it
our own question. It was made our business under (
circumstances which no true-hearted Englishman 1
will disown. I have had within a few days the
honor of a letter from Mr. Schuyler, United States
Secretary of Legation and Consul-General at Con-
stantinople, in which he says he is about to make a
further report on the trials and executions in, and t
on the state of, Bulgaria. 'I think you will find in
it,' he writes, abundant confirmation of the remark t
at which Selim Effendi took offence.' I quote this
because those who wish to lull the people of Eng- t
land into ignoble slumber are fond of saying there
has been exaggeration on this subject. There
has been no exaggeration, except the exaggeration t
that the Turks had in them the capacity and de- ,
sire of reform. Do not listen to that for a moment. d
But as to the black deeds done in Bulgaria, the I
whole vocabulary of human language is insufficient f
to paint them as they deserve. The people of Eng-
land are bound to resist the seductive language of
those who tell them, now the conference has met
and failed, there is no more to be done. It is you, 4
the people of England, whose resouo es and whose
actions have maintained Turkey in-the position of
power she has so abominably misused. After the
Crimean war the Treaty of Kainardji, concluded
a century ago, which gave Russia the right to inter-
fere for the protection of Turkey's Christian sub-
jects, was destroyed, and we in conjunction with
France destroyed that right. Can anything be
more plain than if we destroyed that right we can-
not divest ourselves of the obligation to put in its
place something equivalent, or better. Therefore
to say our responsibilities are discharged by having
sent an honorable man to Constantinople to give
the Porte good advice and then come away with
nothing but the refusal of that advice in his recol-
lection, is nothing more or less than mockery. I
have not sought to make this speech an attack on the
Government; I think we are justified in attacking
them, and it is just possible at the proper time I
may be taking a share in doing so. But the sett-
ling of past accounts is of secondary consequence.
The Prime Minister has repeatedly dwelt upon the
importance of maintaining what he calls the faith
of treaties. Now the vital question for us is this :
Are the treaties of 1856 in force or not ? I hold it
to be ridiculous, I hold it to be monstrous, to say
they are in force as between Turkey and us. If
the treaties are in force I hardly know what liber-
ties you possess. You are in a disgraceful position.
You become accessories in the maintenance of a
power marked with perhaps the deepest disgrace re-
corded in the whole history of mankind. The new
Turkish constitution is worse than imposture, be-
cause it commits the Christian minority to the ten-
der mercies of the Mahommedan majority in the
Council to which we are invited to leave the task i
of doing justice to the Porte's subjects. If by the
incessant dinning into our ears of the maintenance
of British interests, if by the infusion of every
word of suspicion against the policy of Russia, if
by the abuse of those unhappy Turkish Christians
who, having been an enslaved people, are necessarily
in such respects open to the demoralizing influence
of slavery, if by the recent invention of a Turkish
constitution, made to order and intended to act as a
bar to the propositions of the Conference-if by
these, or any other like device-for I must say the
imagination of the Turkish press of this country is
fertile beyond everything in manufacturing them
-if by these things you are going to be drawn
aside from the great purpose you have in view,
then we shall leave to posterity the melancholy les-
son that the people of England, having long dwelt
in the apathy which was due to ignorance that we
all labored under, and having been once awakened to
gallant and noble effort in favor of the principles
of humanity, justice and freedom, were content to
be lulled to sleep again; that they found the task
of duty too heavy for them; it was more convenient
for every man to go about his own pursuits-his
own money making, his own pleasures-and dis-
miss from his mind these painful and harrowing
subjects. It may be so; but if that be true, these
are marks of a degenerate nation. This is conduct
that emphatically confutes the doctrine of human
progress. But, gentlemen, if you really wish to be
worthy of the forefathers from whom you are des-
cended, of the civil and religious liberty you pos-
sess, and of the religion which it is your greatest
privilege and blessing to possess, for Heaven's sake
do not allow yourselves to be corrupted-for corrup-
tion it is-by these debasing insinuations, but grap-
ple with this great duty which is given you, and
leave to those who come after you a lesson and ex-
ample which I will venture to say, will neither be
less noble nor less beneficial to mankind than the
noblest of all lessons which you have received from
a long line of ancestors." [Great cheering.]

THE EIGHTEENTH CANON.
In reply to Churchman" in your issue of to-day
I would say that he might spare himself the trouble
of searching the Scriptures to prove that Jesus is
GOD," because we are quite agreed upon that point;
but the Bible certainly does not give any more war-
rant for bowing at the name of Jesus in our Church
Services than for doing it in our ordinary reading,
or conversation by the fireside, or in our family de-
votions, or upon the Emmaus journey. If he means
;o say, as stated in my first communication (in Ga-
zette of 27th December), "that when our Lord and
the world are in conflict, the whole world is to bow,
and yield at the bare mention of His Name," in
this figurative sense we are agreed also. As to the
'ramers of the Canon, if we are to judge of the
manner and effect of their "studying of the Scrip-
tures" by their directions as to the Ministers
'night caps and stockings," I must say, with all
due deference to their piety, that I think they might
have studied them to much greater advantage, and
this simply shows like the direction on bowing, how
much more their minds were occupied by outward
and visible signs, than by inward and spiritual
grace. Respecting its being still in forCe, I don't
think we are much indebted to the framers for it,
because the substance was adopted long before, and
it would have continued to the present day just
as effectually as if it had never become a Canon.
It was simply to tell the people how to behave
themselves in Church, and to conform to the Prayer
Book, and this, their profession and religious be.
lief, and common sense of propriety taught them
much better, and they complied from a much higher
motive than Canon Law. Does not "Churchman"
imagine that the framers of the Prayer Book also
studied the Holy Scriptures, and is not this Book
of far better authority for" outward ceremonies and
gestures" in conducting our Church' Worship'than
any Canon can be, and yet it tells us nothing about
this extra reverence that the Canon (non-scriptural)
imposes! It is not that in bowing there is any
wrong in 'the thing itself, done by really devout
minds in true reverence, but it is questionable wheth-
er it has not, like many other things in themselves
good, an evil tendency in those not so devout and
reverent as "Churchman" P I started with the
proposition is it not wise to discontinue its profuse
adoption all through our Services, in this age P
The example handed down by observers of it in the
Belief has induced many of the young people to add
to it conceiving that the oftener the better to conm-
ply with the text in Phil., and hence the advisabil-
ity of ceasing to do it at all, as not Scriptural ? Let
us take heed of the evil consequences of similar ex.,
tremes amongst fellow Christians in some of our
Sister Churches, where substance falls a prey to
forms commenced in innocence.
As to "sadness of heart that some professing
Christians do not acknowledge the Divinity of the
Saviour" I certainly advocate administering a more
potent operation than bowing in our Services which
I deem futile. As to alms-deeds, if Churchman"'
is dissatisfied with the argument, all I can say is it
is our Saviour's argument and not mine, and I be-
lieve the nearer we approach to His directions the
more acceptable will our offerings be; and the less
parade there is in our Congregational Worship the
better He will be pleased, because the example of
His whole life on Earth was to shun notoriety and
display; and were He to visit some of the Churches
of the present day and see what goes on there, I
doubt not they would meet the fate of the "tables
of the money changers." The more simple our
Public Worship, and the fewer our ceremonies and
gestures, the more composed is the mind to partake
of spiritual food, and the more nearly do we follow
the footsteps of our Saviour and His Apostles.

lume issuc..1 thv. fIh S P ;i , "i. ,n IneiTuiin, m under
the title "7.Li Distribution annd YV;ri:tions ,fM the
Atmospheric Temperature in the United states."
: 1. temperature tables are based upon all available
thermometric observations made in the Unitedi States
and Canada previous to the year 1871, the estimated
number of which will not fall below 11,0e'-;,'' '. The
labour of 1 ,. ;:.' this great mass of observations
and of deducing some general results has been ably
performed by Mr. t'l.:..i.:. A. Schott, of the Coast
Survey Office, to whom science has also been indebted
for the Smithsonian Rain T.il,' and for many other
special works in :*.. Three large charts
accompany this work, showing the distribution of
surface temperature for the summer, the winter, and
the year. Numerous ,.,;: plates illustrate the
daily and annual fluctuations of temperature. Mr.
Schott finds no perceptible secular change in the tem-
perature of the country, nor any deci 1ed connection
between our i -es and the variations in solar
spots. For ten stations the mean temperatures have
been computed for every day of the year, and it ap-
pears from these that changes in the normal tempera-
ture of any day e(xt.end over large fracts of country,
and progress in an easterly direction. All the sta-
tions agree in shewi; a rpild rise in temperature
about the 20th of Februlnry. There are also indica-
tions that the hottest and coldest epochs change some-
what from year to year, n adng- a complete circuit in
seventy years through a ranne of %bout six weeks.
On comparing the average .;. : '. of the win with
the av. ,i.. temperature, it appears evident that for
years of northerly winds the temperature is lower, and
for southerly winds is higher, so that secular changes
in local temperature are attributable to corresponding
changes in the direction of the wind, These latter
changes, on the other hand, must be a part of a sys-
tem of oscillations in the -. i currents of the at-
mosphere, which may possibly be ultimately due to
slight variations in solar radiation,
Although the Smithsonian Tables approach so near-
ly to being an exhaustive compilation, yet there are
continually being brought to light hitherto unknown
series of observations, some of which will be worthy
of future publication. Of this character is the exten-
sive work done by Engelmann in 1859, as meteorolo-
gist to Simpson's explorations in Utah. Hlis report
on the hypsometric results of these observations has
just been published by the Army Engineer Bureau,
and forms one of the best contributions that the army
has made to the subject. In this report Engelmahn
gives a very lucid explanation of the influence that
vapour exerts in affecting the diurnal variations of
temperature on the Western plateaus. Editor's Sci-
entific Record in Harper's Magazine for November.
PRESIDENT GRANT AND SIR EDWARD
President Grant and the Thorntons are described
by Mrs. Clemrmer in The Independent as among the
notabilities who walk along Pennsylvania-ave:
Here is Lady Thornton afoot-her dress-skirt
lifted h,,h, her gray petticoat clearing the wet
ground below at every turn-her fair, clear, English
face evidently in pursuit of something, in earnest.
Andrew Johnson was a frequent walker here.
With his image comes back the extreme nicety of
his dress. This was remarkable. There was no-
thing effeminate or dandified in it; but such a gloss
of broardcloth, such perfection of fit, such fault-
lessly gloved hands were not easily overlooked, if
only from contrast to the ordinary ranks of care-
lessly-dressed men. Another exceedingly well-
dressed man who walks Pennsylvania-ave, is Pre-
sident Grant. In the earlier days of his Adminis-
tration he did dump his hands in his pockets and
travel slowly along the street with a smoking cigar
in his mouth. He does no such thing now. Neith-
er does be any longer use his pockets as mittens.
His bands are carefully gloved, and he carries a
substantial cane. I know old people who would
say, comparing him with his former self: 'The Pre-
sident looks as if he had got religion,' Another
especially clean-looking man, who walks every day
on Pennsylvania-ave., is the British Minister, Sir
Edward Thornton. He has dark, kind, sagacious
eyes, the regulation mutton-chop whiskers of the
Englishman, great big hands and feet, altogether
that beefsteak basis of body and limb which Amer-
icans lack and long for. No human being could
be freer from pomposity or airs of any sort. His
feet, planted firmly on the solid earth, seem to be
forever striking out for new miles to conquer, and
his eyes to be forever in quest of some human crea-
ture whom he may help by the way. The stately
coach of the English L.e;aii',' may be seen any day
on the Avenue, with its maroon liveries and cock-
aded outriders; but the 'dean of the corps' is sel-
dom in it. Him you meet striding along the street
'r" idi' in the First cars. T"r.' no woman is so
poor or so shabby that the British 'iI-'st',,' will
not put her ticket in the box, nor one so old or
ugly that he wil! not give her his seat. He is a
gentleman of gentlemen.
S'i he Ameican .'' .:-as in Matamoris have
asked the United States Government to protect
Jhem by a military force.

The precious quality of Rigollot's Paper in cases
of great gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It is
an important Healing Agent. To children, weak
and nervous, persons, I strongly recommend the fol-
lo.wing method of graduating the action of the plas-
ter according to the will or condition of the patient,
viz., to put one, two, or three leaves of ,wet blot-
ting paper between the Sinapism and the ,skin.
An old piece of fine linen may also be employed
instead of blotting paper.
