From the West Indies and Demerara.
The R. M. Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw, arrived
on Tuesday morning last from St. Thomas.
We are indebted to Captain Shaw for files of St.
Thomas papers, in addition to our exchange files
thence and from the other Islands and Demerara.
Vice-Admiral Sir A. COOPER KEY, K.C.B., in
the flag-ship Bellerophon, accompanied by theEclipse,
Dryad, and Encounter, arrived at Barbados on the
20th from Antigua via Martinique. His Excellen-
cy on landing dispensed with the customary
honours. A series of Balls are being given to him
and the officers of the Fleet. Amidst the round of
pleasure accorded Sir ASTLEY, he has yet found
time to visit a number of the public primary schools
of the Island, and, from all quarters, we learn, that
he has expressed himself pleased with the manner
in which the little boys and girls acquitted them-
selves. We are glad of this, because, should Sir
ASTLEY have an opportunity, we hope he will do us
thejustice to disabuse the minds of the British
people of the erroneous idea that the black and
colored portion of the population of the island are,
educationally speaking, in a state of barbarism.
Admiral Key was to leave Barbados on 31st Jany.
The Er.tertainment given at the Albert Hall on
Friday evening by the Temperance seamen of the
Squadron now in Carlisle Bay, was, says the Barba-
dos Globe of the 29th Jan., quite a success. There
was a large and respectable audience who seemed
thoroughly to appreciate the endeavours of the
gallant tars to amuse and entertain them. The
fine band of the Bellerophon was one of the great
attractions of the evening, and delighted the au-
dience with some choice selections of popular music.
The chair was taken by Mr. A. H. BISPHAM who
briefly urged the claims of the seamen on the sym-
pathy and support of the public, and paid a tribute
to their labours as temperance missionaries. Mr.
H. D. CAPPER, of H. M. S. Dryad, gave an inter-
esting account of the progress of the Temperance
cause in the Royal Navy and of the work that had
been done by H. M. hips in planting lodges all
over the West Indies. I. CONTON, a seaman of the
same vessel, also delivered a plain but very earnest
and practical address on temperance works and the
influence it had exercised in raising the moral and
social tone of seamrin as a class. An address on
temperance work in l'emerara was delivered dur-
ing the course of the evening by Mr. FREDERICKS,
the District Counsellei of the British Guiana Dis-
trict Lodge I. O. G T. Messrs. RICE, HAYNES,
GRIPPLE, MEEKING, 4ud many other seamen gave
various songs and recitations with great applause;
but the most decided hit of the evening was the
various services and comic recitations given by
paivate JosuLIN, Royal Marines, who seemed to
carry the audience with him on every appearance.
Altogether this was a decidedly successful effort,
and we trust it has not been without good results.
The Antigua papers announce the death of Arch-
deacon Read, M.A., Rector of St. Mary's, Antigua.
The St. Vincent Witness of the 25th January,
says the Imperial Government having determined
to Federate these Islands has resolved to make no
appointment to the office of Attorney General, but
will blend it under the title of Law Officer of the
Crown with the situation of Colonial Secretary.
Stephen Murphy, second mate of the John T.
Ives, of Halifax, N.S., has bees arrested at George-
town, Demerara, for the murder of one of the crew
of said vessel named William Murray, when on
passage between Monte Video and Demerara. Par-
ticulars not given. Murphy had been two weeks in
prison, sentenced by the city Magistrate, of having
used threatening language to Captain McKenzie
of the J. T. Ives.
The following is an account of produce shipped
in 1876:
Sugar 119,392 hhds.
Rum 36,000 puns.
Molasses 14,321 casks.
Timber 464,435 cubic feet.
Shingles 5,102,350.
Charcoal 32,266 barrels.
Cocoanuts 1,259,506
Rum issued for consumption in the Colony 260,-
016 gallons, on which .65,265-59 duty was paid.
The Panama Star of the latest date says, that H.
M. S. Daring had been telegraphed on the 19th ul-
timo, to leave immediately for Realejo, Nicaragua,
to enquire into the outrages recently committed in
Leon on the person of Mr. Essenstuck, of the firm
of Essenstuck & Co. Mr. Essenstuck is a native of
Germany, but the German Government having no
vessels of war on that coast, appliedtto the English
Government for assistance in the matter, which
seems to have been very promptly granted.
JAMAICA.-The weather during the fortnight had
been favorable for agricultural operations. The
continuous rains of December had given place to
sunshine, with an occasional shower, which kept
vegetation green. The sugar planters were busily
engaged reaping their crops. The canes were yield-
ing well and with a continuance of favorable weath-
er the sugar crop promised to be rather above the
average.
The coffee crop was being rapidly got in. The .
very high prices paid for this article during the
past fortnight (68s to 70s) had induced the settlers
Sto work night and day in manufacturing their ;
crops, and a very large quantity had been brought i
Sto market. In some of the best coffee-producing i
districts 8,000 to 10,000 had been weekly spent
in purchasing from the small settlers. The yield
for this season will not be large. Tobacco, although
a comparatively new industry in that country, had
now become a staple production.
The Tri-Weekly Gleaner, in an editorial, suggests
that a hearty and loyal welcome ought to be given
to Sir Anthony Musgrave, by the people of that
Island, when he arrives to assume the Government;
and that addresses of welcome should come from


every parish, to greet His l xcellency.

END OF THE "MOCTEZUMA."
From the Diarios de la Marina of the 14th and
18th January, we translate the following about the
fate of the above mentioned vessel:-
According to information obtained at Cape
Gracias A Dios by the Commander of the Jorge
Juan, (War-vessel,) the local authorities of that
place had not only allowed the sale of part of the
Moctezuma's cargo and the purchase ot a quantity
of coals, but had also provided her with a pilot fur
that coast.
He was informed moreover that the Moctezuma
had gone to Punta Hueson to wait for more coals.
On the same night of the 1st the Jorge Juan
left for Punta Hueson, and arrived there on the 3rd.
The pirate was neither to be found there ; but see-
ing smoke coming out from Brangman bay, the
Jorge Juan proceeded thither and the Moctezuma
was seen burning, the pirates having taken refuge
in the mountains. Boats were immediately sent
with the necessary utensils to put out the fire, but
if was found impossible, the vessel being already in
flames.
"A group of men with a white flag was seen on
shore, and turned out to be 13 of the Spanish crew
of said vessel, all of whom were taken on board, as
well as 7 more found, the next morning.
It being impossible to tow the hull of the Moc-
tezuma in the state it was found, and considering
urgent to report immediately to the Spanish Author-
ities the fate of that vessel, the Jorge Juan proceed-
ed to Cienfuegos, after the necessary protests were
made by the Commander at Cape Gracias a Dios
against the Authorities of that place for their pro-
ceedings with the pirates,"

A DUEL AT SEA.
The ship glided on in the smooth waters, the stars
Looked coldly down; amongst them gleamed an-
grily Mars.
Upon the deep there was silence, save the low sigh
of the wave,
The sigh of Ocean, as though mourning over the
grave
Of the many departed, the many who sleep
Calmly under the never-resting deep.
The ship glided on, and dark the night grew
Black clouds came and hid moon and stars from view,
The bosom of Ocean rose white-crested and soon
heaved
With waves long rolling, the wind as though grieved,
Sighed mournfully through the rigging; and then
loud
After a few hours shrieked around sheet and shroud.
But the good ship held on, homeward steering
For two days and a night until the wind veering
Round to a quieter quarter, left on the Ocean
Only a heavy roll, a strong but restrained common.
tion,
And another night came, the wind had quite died
away
And a dense fog rolled over ocean cold and.grey.
The third day dawned, and the Sun battled with
the mist
And a' light breeze sprang up, which Ocean's bo-.
som kissed
And rolled together the fog, making it like a wall
Then in the strengthening light, lo! a vessel tall,
Huge, bearing the flag of the foe began to loom
Ghost-like and stern amid the hazy gloom.
Then thundered forth the great guns, a thick cloud
Belched from those grim mouths, enwrapping the
ships like a shroud
Broadside to broadside, till to each other they drew
near
Yardarm to yardarm, even entangling their gear
Desperately struggling, grappling in close strife
Like two strong wrestlers, wrestling for very life.
Thus did they fight, till upon each red deck
Hundreds lay bleeding, each ship a floating wreck
The midday sun shone upon pain and death
Still the living ones worked with choked and la.
bouring breath
Still from those iron mouths the shot came
The white smoke, the loud boom, following the
quick flame.
The sun towards the West declined ere the fierce
fight
Came to an end;-in the red glare of the evening
light
The victory was still undecided, but now could be
seen
How terrible both the attack and defence had been;
Dismasted, shot riven, one ship foundering lay
Around the other forked flame was beginning to play.
A crew of a thousand men each vessel had borne,
When the fog had cleared from the ships on that
terrible morn:
Now half were dying or dead, the others aghast
Worked at tangled rigging and broken mast
To get at the boats, so fast did the water rise
In the one, whilst the other's flames reddened the
skies.
Too late, too late the water had risen so fast
In the foundering ship, that the hour of rescue had
past
She sank and dragged down the boats; the other
assailed
By devouring flame, which raged over all, and pre.
vailed.
And crackled, and roared, and reddened the coming
, night;
Drifted; the living and dying prepared for flight.
The living and dying! Alas! more happy the dead!
The deck red with blood, the black smoke and flame
over head,
The boats all destroyed save two, the wide sea around
What escape for the living? A deep and terrible
sound
Burst forth: a mass of black smoke towards heaven
up-curl'd
On the sea torn wreck and men to death's agony
hurl'd.

From battle, murder, and from sudden death
Good Lord deliver us! Thou givest breath
To man to labour and subdue the soil
By earnest work, and constant daily toil ,,
Thou sendest war to scourge the sinning land
To punish man Thou stretchest forth Thy hand:
Oh may Thine anger ne'er against us burn
Nor we by sin, Thy wrath against us turn.
LOTOPHAGUTS.

Proclamation-Queen Victoria Empress of India.
-The Richest and Most Gorgeous ceremonies
ever witnessed in that Country fertile and mag-
nificent as it is in pageantry.
On the 1st January, 1877, Lord Lytton, the
Viceroy, proclaimed Queen Victoria Kaisar-i-Hind,
or Empress of India, on the historic ground over-
looking Delhi, the capital of the Great Moguls.
It was splendid weather, and the occasion was
one of magnificent and dazzling display, worthy
the gorgeous East that showers on its barbaric
pearl and gold. Lord Lytton occupied, in an am-
phitheatre erected for the ceremony, a dais, above
which, sustained by gilded columns, was a canopy
of crimson and gold, with white panels, on which
were displayed alternately the Royal arms and the
imperial crown, with the initials V.I.
An enormous crown surmounted the highest


point of the canopy.
Facing the Viceroy were eighty ruling princess
of Hindostan, gorgeously attired, emblazoned with
jewels. Silken banners of various hues, emblazed
with rare and quaint heraldic devices, fluttered
over all. Each prince was surrounded by his re-
tainers.
Outside the amphitheatre 13,000 mixed troops
were in line and the British scarlet shone beside
medieval chain mail.
On either hand the dais was flanked by a guard
of honor and the back ground was formed by a
majestic line of magnificently caprisoned elephants
and camels with quaint vehicles, a tremendous dust
and a gaudily attired multitude in gala costume.
The English correspondents compare the picture in
this respect to be turnout of the Derby day.
There was a formal flourish of trumpets, the
heralds came forward, the proclamation of the Em-
press was read in English and Hindostan and the
trumpets blared again triumph and defiance;
the royal banner was given to the breeze; the troops
saluted it; the artillery fired thirty-four salvoes of
three guns each; the infantry a feu de joie thrice
repeated, and the massed bands played the nation-
al anthem while all stood up.
Lord Lytton then read a speech and a congratu-
latory address from the Queen. The anthem was
played again, the troops cheered and the Viceroy
declared the ceremonies finished. Thus ended the
grandest spectacle British India has ever seen.

The Schr. Augusta Muir, from Shelbourne, N.S.,
at Barbados, fell in with, on the 26th Dec., to the N.
E. of Bermuda, the Brigantine James Coffll, water-
logged, and took from her Capt. Smith and 8 in
crew, and landed them at Barbados. The J. C.

after his arrival here Mr. James received the appoint-

general management of the Bermuda Chronicle News-
paper. A misunderstanding between himself and the
then Governor (Hamley) in 1865 led to his retirement
from the Surveyor Generalship, and a few years later
on the Chronicle changing hands he retired from the
Editorship of that paper, since which time he has devo-

TIHE TOMB OF AGAMEMNON.
Dr. Henry Scbhliemann, writing to the ; un-
der date Mycenoe, November 28, continues the ac-
count of his great discoveries :-
"I continue the description of the jewels, &c.,
found with the fivebodiesin thefourth tomb. Among
the most interesting objects of this sepulchre I
reckon the magnificently ornamented gold buttons,
Twelve are in the form of a cros, and one of them
is 2 1-5 inches large and 3 inches long ; three are
somewhat smaller, and the remaining eight are of a
still less size. Of splendidly ornamented round
gold buttons were found in all 216, two of which
are two inches in diameter, seven are of the
size of a 5f. piece, and 207 are still smaller. All
these buttons the lower part of which consists of a
bone button in the form of our shirt buttons, must
have served on the clothes of the deceased, whereas
all which show below only a flat piece of bone or
wood have evidently se ved to decorate the sheaths
of swords, lances, &c., to which they had been
soldered with tin or otherwise fastened. There were
in all found in this tomb 25 two-edged bronze
swords, 16 of which are in a perfect state of con-
servation; four of them had handles plated with
gold and richly ornamented. There were also
found with the swords five large handled buttons,
four of which are of Alabaster and one of wood ;
all of them are ornamented with golden nails.
Further, two golden shoulder-belts telamoness),
which were worn on the shoulder across the breast;
both are 4 feet long and 1 3-5 in. broad. There
were further found two large golden girdle belts
ornamented with circles and flowers; one of them
is composed of two pieces. There was also found
part of a similar belt and a child's golden girdle
belt, only 1 ft. 4 in. long, and 2 1-5 in. broad.
Further, a splendidly ornamented large golden
handle, probably of a sceptre. It terminates in a
dragon's head, whose scales seem to have been imi-
tated by square pieces of rock crystal, which are in-
laid like mosaic. This is an object of marvellous
beauty of which Homer would have said Thauma
idesthai (a wonder to look upon).
"There was also found seven large and one small
golden diadems-one of the former is ornamented
with golden leaves. All of them show splendid
ornaments of circles and spiral lines. Further,
four golden ornaments of the klnemides (greaves) al-
most in form of a bracelet; one comb of bone in a
large handle or caring of gold, of the usual form, as
ladies wear it; one enormous, most magnificently
ornamented, massive golden bracelet, weighing 860
grammes. In the centre of the ornamentation of
this bracelet is soldered a separate piece of gold, re-
presenting the sun with its rays. The size of this
bracelet is so enormous that the person who has
worn it must have had gigantic arms. It may have
been worn on the legs. Quite in opposition to the
size of the bracelet are two massive golden seal
rings, the opening of which is so small that they
would only fit a child of ten years. I, therefore,
supposed that they may have been used as seals
only. One of the seals represents two warriors on
a two-wheeled chariot with two horses which seem
to run at full gallop; one of the warriors is holding
a bow in his hand, and has just shot an arrow at a
stag; the stag is wounded, and in anguish turns his
head. The other seal ring represents a warrior
who has just vanquished his three enimies and is in
the act of giving with his uplifted sword a last
blow to one of them wounded and kneeling before
him on one knee; the latter tries to parry the blow
with his upifted hands and with a lance, which he
holds in his right, and seems to throw at his op-
ponent. Another seems to be mortally wounded
for he lies on the ground leaning on both his hands.
The third, who alone of all the four warriors has
a helmet with a crest on his head, is flying under
the cover of an enormous shield which reaches
from his neck to his heels; but still he turns his
head towards his victorious enemy, and is in the
act of throwing a lance at him. The anatomy of
all the men is so well observed, their posture is so
faithful to nature, and everything is executed with
so much art that, when I brought to light these
rings, I involuntarily exclaimed, the author of the
Iliad' and the Odyssey' can only have been born
and educated in a civilization which could produce
such wonders. Only a poet who had masterpieces
of art like these continually before his eyes could
compose those divine poems.'
"At the end of one of the bodies were found a
large and heavy golden helmet, but it had been
much crushed, and had become nearly flat under
the ponderous weight which pressed upon it. In
its present state it is difficult to describe it. On its
forepart the openings for the eyes and mouth, as
also a protuberance, ornamented with small stars,
are distinctly visible, as also in the top of the hel-
met, the tube for the crest. The back pearl is
beautifully ornamented with an imitation of the
hair. The face of the same body was covered with
one of the golden masks mentioned in my last letter
and its breast' and sides by 1 ft. 8 inches long,
and 1 ft. broad, thick plates of gold, which was no
doubt intended to represent the coat of mail,
There were further found 100 leaves of gold, either
of circularor r of cross-like form, with impressed
ornamentation, consisting either of spiral lines or
of circles. Further three very heavy golden breast
pins, of which the one is 54, and other 5, and third
4 inches long. The last is crowned with a ram,
the two others with an ornament in shape of a hel-
met, and the heads of all the three breastpins are
perforated, probably to put in a flower. There
were further found two masterley ornamented ob-
jects of massive gold ifi the form of crosses ; also a
large golden vase weighing 14 kilogrammes; it has
two handles, a large foot, and ornamented with
three upper and two lower parallel lines, between
which is a row of 14 stars; further a large golden
vase with one handle and an ornamentation repre-


renting seven beautiful flowers; another golden
vase with two handles; further a splendid little
golden oenochoe or wine can, with an ornamenta-
tion of spiral lines. Further, six golden drinking
cups one of which is a depas amphikypetlon with two
handles, on each of which is a pigeon, each of the
two handles being joined to the foot by two seper-
ate golden blades. This goblet reminds us of Nes-
tor's goblet, which was also ornamented with pi-
geons (see "Iliad," XI, 682-685). One of the other
goblets is ornamented with parallel flutings. There
were further found two small golden vessels;
also eight silver vases, three of which are admir-
ably conserved ; one of the other five has the bottom
and the mouth of bronze; below its bottom were
found one hundred of the aforesaid golden buttons.
I further found in this tomb thirteen large bronze
vessels. This kind of vessel was in high esteem
in the heroic age, and we see them continually
mentioned by Homer as prizes in the games. I
suppose-that to each hero were given in the grave
the goblets and other objects which were dear to
him ir his lifetime, having been won by him in the
games, or having been given to him by his host as a
pledge of hospitality and friendship. There was also
lound a large quantity of smallperiorated amber balls
of necklaces and a bronze or o 'rt fork with three
teeth, which had probably served on the funeral
pyres, There were further found thirty-five arrow
heads of obsidian. Nothing could give a better
idea of the great antiquity of these tombs than these
stone arrow heads, for the "Iliad" seems to know
only arrow heads of bronze (e. g. Iliad XIII., 650
and 662). Probably there had also, been d..i cd
bows and quivers in the tomb, but they would have
been of wood, and would have rotted away. To
my greatest regret, among the thousands of gold or-

naments there is not even a single sign resembling
writing, and it therefore appears certain that the


sepulchbres belong to an epoch which preceded the
introduction of the Phoenician alphabet. Had the
latter been known, the Mycenoean goldsmiths, whose
continual efforts appear to have been directed to
the invention of a new ornamentation, would have
been very ambitious to show the novelty of the
alphabet. A second proof of the immense antiquity
of these tombs is the entire absence of any vestige
of either iron or glass, or of any pottery made on
the potter's wheel. But the hand-made pottery
has reached a high degree of perfection, such as
has never been attained here in latter days by the
pottery made on the wheel.

RIGOLLOT'S
MUSTARD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals of Pars, Field
and Military Hospital, by the
English Royal Navy and
the French National
Navy, &c.
To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few
moments a decided result with the smallest possible
quanity of the remedy, are the problems which M.
Rigollot has solved in the most conclusive and sa-
tisfactory manner. Rigollot's Sinapism in leaves
will, therefore, be found in every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer.
geney renders it an invaluable remedy for various
disorders.
(Signed) A. BOUCIIARDAT
Annuaire therapentique ann6e 1868, p. 204.
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot's Paper in cases
ofigreat gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It is
an important Healing Agent. To children, weak
and nervou- persons, I strongly recommend the fol-
1owing 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 Aet blot-
ting papdr between the Sinapism and the skin.
An old piece of fine linen may also be employed
instead of blotting paper.
Beware of Imitations.
