The Spanish Barque Resoluda, 479 Spanish tons,
Capt. Pedro Coll, on a voyage from New Orleans to
Barcelona, laden with cotton, cotton seed oil, and wine
staves, arrived in St. George's Harbour on the evening
of the 10th inst. On the 8th inst., while running from
a heavy gale, and at the moment of changing course,
struck on the reefs at the West end of these Islands,
which caused the vessel to leak seriously and deprived
her of the rudder. Was extricated by pilots and boat-
men from the shore, By the kind permission of Capt.
Leveson E. H. Somerset, Superintendent of H. M.
Naval Establishments, the Barque was towed to Five
Fathom Hole by h. M. Steam Tug Spitfire; coming
to anchorage there, a temporary rudder was arranged,
which enabled the Spitfire to complete her valued ser-
vice by placing the vessel in safe harbour anchorage at
6 p.m. on Saturday the 10th instant, with several feet
of water in the hold, notwithstanding the large aid ob-
tained from the shore to keep the pumps in constant
operation. The cargo will be discharged without de-
lay. In one of the holes in her bottom is a large piece
of coral rock, which cannot be removed till the vessel
is docked.-Agents, W. C. Hylai d & Co.
American Barque Mary E. Russel, Captain Nickels,
from Java bound to Boston, with sugar, arrived at St.
Georges on Sunday last, with foremast gone about ten
feet above the deck and all above, mainmast and top-
gallantmast with all attached gone, and ship leaking
slightly. Will repair and get away as speedily as pos-
sible.-Agents, W. C. Hyland & Co.

The Quarter-board, 4 feet long by 8 inches broad, of a
vessel, with the letters J M Q F" cut in the wood
and painted white on a black ground, was brought to
our Office on Friday morning last by Mr. Adolphus D.
Doane, who found it in the water off the South shore of
Paget Parish, near the Grape Trees, a few hours be-
fore. It was well coated with barnacles and had some
spawn of ocean fish on it. Mr. Doane picked up at
same time a long worm-eaten plank.
In the "Record of American and Foreign Shipping
for 1876," which has been kindly shown us, we see that
" J M Q F" are the signal letters of the 3-masted
Schr. Mary F. Corson, Corson, Master, 277 tons bur-
then, owned by George Smith & Brothers of Philadel-
phia. built at Milford, Del., in 1872, and last surveyed
in 1874, oak-built, iron-fastened, single bottom not
sheathed.
The brass screws which attached the board to the
vessel's side remain in the board. The board may have
been washed away or it may be the only remaining sad
remembrancer of not only the Mary F. Corson but
also of her crew.

ANOTHER DEATH BY DROWNING.-On Thursday
last a boat laden with fire-wood, in charge of a man
named Talbot, accompanied by two young men and a
daughter of Mr. Nathaniel Richardson, was proceeding
from Tucker's Town to St. George, and when near Grog
Island the men in the boat were heard to call for help
by persons on St. David's Island, as the boat was fill-
ing with water. A boat, as speedily as possible, went
to their assistance, and the men were rescued, but the
young woman could not be found nor has her body been
since recovered.

ST. VINCENT.-A bazaar, at which $900, equal

GRENADA.-This is principally a cocoa-produ-

Gazette, seems to be transferred from the cane-fields
to the cocoa plantations. While the yield of the
former threatens a decline this year, that of the
latter promises to be the greatest crop the country
has ever had.

revive the interest in yatting by instituting Cruising
Races, to take place uter the auspices of the Club.
It was proposed to have race once a month on a day

TuRxs' IsLANDs.-We are much pleased to observe
by an official notice in the Turks' Islands Standard
of the 27th January, that by a comparative state-
ment of the Revenue and Expenditure for the years
1875 and 1876, a result is shown very largely in
favor of the year just expired. A Summary of the
Revenue will be found on last page of our to-day's
issue. The quantity of salt exported from those
Islands during the year 1876 is the largest on re-
cord, being an increase in bushels of 189,869. This
increase is attributable to the ground salt which
process has wonderfully increased the demand
abroad. The introduction of mills for this purpose
originated with Messrs. Murphy and Frith.
Mr. Reynord's pamplet, several copies of which
were received in these Islands recently, has been the
cause of much annoyance. It is severely criticised
by the Editors of the Royal Standard as well as by
many anonymous writers in that Journal.
It is stated that the Society for Propagating the
Gospel in foreign parts, has granted the sum of
1,000 from its funds towards the endowment of a
Bishopric in the Bahamas, and that the Society
Further agrees to pay annually the sum of 200
towards the expenses of a Yacht for the use of the
Bishop.

BARBADOS.---The members of the Commercial
Hall have just elected Mr. Reeves an honorary
member of the Hall, in "recognition of his valu-
ible services during the late ,,lii::. struggle."
iMr. J. H. Shannon has received a similar compli-
ment. We are glad to learn," says the Globe, by a
Government Notice in the Official Gazette, that Lord
'arnarvon has seen fit to reinstate Dr. Piggott in
he office of Coroner of St. Michael, from which he
was suspended by Mr. Hennessy."


LatIe f'onE thae U iitcd States.

We have been favored with a copy of the fol-
lowing telegram received here by a Gentleman by
the R. M. Steamer Beta, on Tuesday last from St.
Thomas, and dated the 2nd instant :-
"Hayes declared Elected President on the 1st
instant, he was on his way to Washington on the
2nd to be inaugurated.--Fighting on that day in
South Carolina."

y3 As the time for the Election of Parish Officers
is drawing near we think it may not be amiss to remind
Magistrates, and others concerned, that Act No. 22 of
1876, provides that such Officers are to serve only until
the end of the present year, instead of until within twen-
ty days next after the following Easter as heretofore;
and that the Parochial Estimate is to be made up to the
same date; and, further, that within the last ten days
of this year another Election is to take place, the per-
sons then elected to serve from the first day of January
1878 until the end of that year, and the Estimate for that
year is to be made up within twenty days after the first
day of January ; and so on from year to year: the ob-
ject of the Act, (which, it must be remembered, does not
embrace Church matters) being ihat Parish Officers
shall serve, and the Parochial Estimate be made, for
each civil year, instead of from Easter to Easter as
heretofore.

SIMPLE VERSES ON SOME PROVERBS.

Wisdom uttereth her voice in the streets."
PRoV.i. 20.
Where in the crowded city street
Or market place, the people meet,
Where gathering crowds together run,
Where wealth is sought, and riches won,
There Wisdom lifts her voice, and o'er
The turmoil, and the constant roar
Of hurrying multitudes, sends forth
To East and West and South and North
Her warnings: Seek ye not," she cries,
"The wealth which with the moment flies
Like sparks from wood; an instant glittering bright
Then fading into darkness from the sight,
Which cankering rust will eat, and waste away,
Or moth corrupt, and all its texture fray,
Seek the true riches unto wise ones given,
A stored up treasure in the endless heaven."
LOTAPHAGTS.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart."
PROVE. III. 5.
High on the Throne of Heaven, Thy Footstool Earth
Thy Word omnipotent has called to birth
The Universe of boundless matter steeped with life,
Order from seeming Chaos, Virtue and Peace from
Strife,
Who clothes Thyself ineffably with light
As with a garment, in the fathomless height
Of Highest heaven thou dwellest, in the deep
Of ocean's vast abyss where monsters creep,
And tempests boil and rage, Thy hand is seen,
Or in the forest's path, and meadows green,
Where flowers smile sweetly at the sunny sky
And scented breezes through the branches sigh
Thou orderest all things; give thy servant grace
His trust in Thee not in himself to place.
LOTOPHAGUS.

A TRAMWAY.-The enterprising firm of Messrs. S.
S. lngham & Co., in this Town, have had a tramway
constructed, leading from the front of their Stores on
Water street to the back of their rear premises on Reid
street, a distance of 180 feet, for the conveyance of
heavy articles. Their stores extend the entire length
from street to street, and the only premises having a
yard on a level with the street through that extent.
stores with a roof, similar to the Shed roofs, for the
purpose of storing lumber. This tramway is the first
move in this direction, by private individuals in this
colony, and we presume it is a suggestion that will be
adopted by individuals and corporations, as circumstan-
ces require.

WHAT IS IT ?-Some animal said by some to be a
Ferret, by others a dog, has been prowling about
the Parish of Paget for some months past, causing
considerable destruction amongst poultry, which it
seizes by the neck and sucks the blood till the
bird dies. On Saturday night last it entered the
poultry yard of T. M. Jones, Esqr., of Paget, and
destroyed about $15 worth of poultry, amongst
them three fine turkeys.
An animal, resembling very much a Fox, was in
possession of a person living near Point Shares last
summer. It had young ones, and afterwards left
its haunt, to turn up perhaps in Paget Parish, as
we suspect that it is the supposed Ferret. That
animal was brown in color with bushy tail, which
was black and white, its head long and thin; body
thin, about 18 inches long, and stood about 16 in-
ches in height.

The R. M. Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw, from St.

Halifax. By the Beta we received some files of ex.

BRITISH GUIANA.-The weather has been favor.

ing on with unremitting industry, nearly every mill
in the colony being hard at work.
The Secretaries of the Sailors' Home have pub.
lished their first report, which is a very gratifying
document, as it places beyond a doubt that a Sail-
ors' Home can be maintained on a modest scale
but decently and comfortably provided, at a yearly
cost to the community so very inconsiderable that no
difficulty in raising the amount should be antici-
pated. Including a sum ($175 20) taken over from
the Sailors' Mission fund, the total receipts for the
year (the Home has only been nine months in ex-
istence) ended December 31, amounted to $3,101 37
and the outlay during that time to $3,102 49, the
balance of $1 12 being to the bad.
The Demerara Railway authorities announce
$9,154 44, equal to 7,902 2/6, as the traffic over

The total number of immigrants introduced into
the colony during the past year is 4,348. Of these
3,834 are East Indians, 414 are Barbadians and
100 Portuguese, so called, from Madeira.
Beckwith's Hotel has been purchased by Captain
Halley, U.S. Consul at Barbados.
We mentioned some weeks since that a man
named Murphy, the second mate of the Brigantine
John T. Ives, of Nova Scotia, had been put in gaol
in Demerara charged with the manslaughter of
a seaman of said vessel, named McMurray,
when on passage from Monte Video on New Yeai's
day last, -to Demerara. When on trial before the
Police Magistrate it was declared by some ofthesea-
men that Murphy was seen to kick the deceased a
short time before his death, while others stated that
they had never seen him beat or kick anyone on
board. The offence not being proved Murphy was
discharged, but he was subsequently charged with
assaulting McMurray thereby occasioning actual
bodily harm and was at latest date in gaol awaiting
his trial.
A seaman named McNicol, belonging to the
Schooner Brilliant, was brought before the Police
Magistrate for attempting to murder Captain Parks,
of said vessel. Captain Parks having occasion to
find fault with his crew in general about their neg-
lect of work, McNicol made use of an indecent
expression towards him, when Captain Parks
struck him with his fist. McNicol took hold of
Parks by his legs and pitched him overboard.
On coming to the surface of the water, there hap.
opened to be a boat near by or he would have been
drowned. McNicol was remanded.
Seven seamen, the crew of the barque Loraine,
were tried for revolting on the high seas. They
were all found guilty and sentenced-three of them
to six months and the others to two months impri-
sonment.
TRINIDAD.-The people here are preparing for
their annual cattle show, which is generally held
in the suburbs of Port of Spain.
Murderous assaults are treading on the heels
of each other. The last reported was committed on
the 20th Jany., on Phoonix Park Estate, Couva.
Our contemporary of the New Era is of opinion

of these being coolies who had, without exception
landed in the island as indentured immigrants not
many years since.
ANTIGUA-Sir Wmi. Doyle, the late Chief Justice,
has left for England to take up his new appointment
as Chief Justice in Gibraltar. He had been in the
island only 21 months. Just previous to his de-
parture he was presented with several addresses,
testifying to the large measure of esteem enter-
tained by all classes towards their late dispenser of
"even-handed justice."

merchants there, for 4,350.
JAMAICA.-The present Governor, Sir William
Grey, was to leave Jamaica for England on the
12th instant (yesterday). The local papers do not
compare his government of the island favorably
with that of his predecessor, Sir John Peter Grant.
There was no certainty as to the time when their
new Governor, Sir Anthony Musgrave, may be
expected. There was a Bill before the Legislature
ixing his, and all future Governors', salary at
7,000. Trade was dull.-The December quarter
)f the revenue showed a falling off of 14,000 as
compared with the same quarter of 1875. The
annual report of the Colonial Bank at the General
Meeting of the Proprietors, at 13 Bishopsgate St.,
London, showed such a favorable state of affairs
hat a dividend of 6 per cent on the paid-up capit-

vina; Servia bad made war with an army of which
the fighting element was almost entirely Russian:
Russia was in the field in fact though not in name,
and Russian feeling was so excited that there was
at the time very great f'ar of war between Russia
and the Turks. He was never so much surprised
in his life as when Russia refused the five months'
armistice; coercion now would be unreasonable
unless it meant war, and war would be fraught
with every possible danger to Europe: since the
Conference the Government has been unremitting
in pressing the expediency of peace on Servia,
Montenegro and Turkey-a few days would show
with what success; he was much struck with the
suggestion made by the Turkish representative at
the Conference that the Porte should be given a
reasonable time to carry out reforms in its own
way, and then if nothing was done the Powers
would have the right to demand guarantees
The Marquis of Salisbury said the idea of
six European Powers undertaking the tutelage of
the subject populations of Turkey was a chimera ;
long and sad experience had proved that Turkey
would not reform herself as the Powers expected
when they undertook the obligation to protect her
Christian subjects; the Government, however, like
all the Governments since the Crimean war, are
bound to respect the treaty by which that war was
concluded; the persons who signed that treaty
guaranteeing the independence and integrity of
Turkey, are now attacking Lord Derby for not
having fostered and encouraged the Herzegovinian
insurrection ; it was plain that England's attitude
towards Turkey could not remain the same as in
1856, but it was our duty to struggle as long as
possible against a change which forced us at all
events to put a new and unexpected interpretation
on words to which England was pledged ; we have
not dissolved our traditional alliance without sor-
row, and we shall cling to the hope that some
change in councils may restore that alliance.
Nothing had happened at the Conference to pledge
Russia as a matter of honor to take military action
against the-Porte ; the only coercion England could
threaten would be the destruction of Stamboul by
a fleet, and Turkey would probably disregard that,
as the question of yielding is not in the hands of
those who are most deeply interested in the pros-
perity of the country.
Lord Salisbury further said : Midhat Pacha was
the greatest opponent of the Conference. It is fair
to assume until we know otherwise that his fall be-
tokens a more conciliatory spirit. If once the
Powers are assured that peace is hopeless, there is
every reason to fear that the great energy which now
induces them to strain every nerve to avert war
will lead them in the future to say this question
must be settled once for all. That is the terrible
danger.

From the New York Herald, February 28.
The Southern question is as good as settled, and
needs no pushing by Congress, as democrats as well
as republicans understand. Governor Hayes
stands on his letter of acceptance, and will frame
his policy in accordance with that. This fact is
fixed by a letter from Governor Hayes, received on
Saturday by Mr. Charles Foster, member of Con-
gress from the District in which Governor Hayes
lives, and his personal friend, and an extract from
which is to-day made public. Mr. Hayes writes :-
"Assure. any of our Southern friends that I am
impressed with the necessity of a complete change
of men and policy. I shall stand by the ideas out-
lined in my letter of last summer."
What he then wrote on the Southern question
was this:-
"The moral and material prosperity of the South-
ern States can be-amost effectmltay advanced by a
hearty and generous recognition of the rights of all
-a recognition without reserve or exception.
With such a recognition fully accorded it will be
dracticable to promote by the influence of all legi-
timate agencies of the general government the ef-
fort Iof the people of these States to obtain for
themselves the blessings of honest and capable
local government. ,If elected, I shall consider it
not only my duty but it will be my ardent desire
to labor for the attainment of this end. Let me as-
sure my countrymen of the Southern Slatcs that if I
shall be charged with the duty of organizing an admin-
istration it will be one which will regard and cherish
the interests of the white and of the colored people both
and equally, and which will put forth its best efforts in
behalf of a civilpolicy which will wipe out forever the
distinction between North and South in our common
There is, therefore, no doubt as to the nature o
Mr. Hayes' Southern policy, nor do those who
really wish well to the South, and to Louisiana
and South Carolina in particular, feel any doubt.
But thefilibusters are quite ready to make those
unfortunate States the football of their intrigues
and efforts to obstruct and defeat the electoral
count. It is hardly possible now that they should
succeed.

AUSTRALIA.
SYDNEY, N.S.W., Octr. 20.-Very interesting dis-
coveries in the islands of New Britain and New Ire-
land are announced by the Rev. George Brown, a
Wesleyan missionary just returned to Sydney after a
year's stay in Polynesia. He found that all the na-
tives are cannibals, not because they prefer human
flesh as food, but as proving their complete mastery
over the enemies whom they kill or capture. Mr.'
Brown crossed New Ireland in several places, besides
coasting it in a steam launch. He found high land in
the interior, the loftiest elevations being 2,500 feet!


above sea level. The population in the interior is
more numerous than it was anticipated, and although
jealous of natives of other tribes travelling out of their
own territory, no opposition was offered to the first
white man seen among them. At Blanchi Bay, New
Britain, the natives astounded their visitors by the as-
sertion that at a place called Kiddi there existed a
tribe of men with tails. They stated that this caudal
appendage is so hard and inflexible that they have to
make a hole in the sand before sitting down, and that
any fracture is fatal. Any child born without one
is at once destroyed, lest it should be ridiculed as a
monstrosity. The missionary, incredulous of any
such approach to the Darwinian theory, scoffingly
hinted that they meant monkeys. This was indig-
nantly repudiated, and mnet with the rejoinder Do
monkeys fight with spears, plant yams, build houses,
&c. ?". They have promised to secure a specimen of
this remarkable race, before the mission brig revisits
the station. In another place Mr. Brown found that
the higher class of natives have a custom of placing
their female children separately in taboed houses for
some years prior to attaining the age of puberty.
During this confinement they are never allowed to
touch the ground with their feet, and when permitted
to leave their cages have to walk on bamboo plat-
forms. At Spacious Bay a very superior tribe were
found, of lighter complexion and straighter hair than
in any other part of the group. Both men and women
wear partial clothing, and their dialect is unintelligible
to any other natives of New Britain. The soil of both
the large islands is richly productive of tropical ve-
getation, specimens of which, as well as geological,
have been brought by the John Wesley for scientific
examination, alter which the latter will be handed
over to the local university. A Queensland naturalist,
who accompanied the expedition, obtained a large
variety of natural history specimens. The mission
ship will return to the islands shortly, when, it isto be
hoped, the story of the men with tails will be inquired
into more closely. The interest excited about New
Guinea by Captain Moresby, and more recently by
the discoveries of the mission steamer Ellengowan
is 4estiAed to be unallayed for some time to come.

President Grant has determined to sue Donn Platt,
editor of the Capital. for libel, and also for seditious
writings.--An official despatch from India reports a
further reduction of 73,000 in the number requiring
relief from starvation. The prices of grain had con-
siderably fallen.--After a fair and earnest contest in
St. Lawrence county, U.S., the temperance people
carried the town of Canton, for no license, by a ma-
jority of 266. Dekalb has also gone for no license by
66 majority, and Potsdam by 225.--In the best
London society Scotch songs are becoming popular.
--" Done on my own hook" is now rendered-
Executed on the responsibility of my own personal

San Francisco post on the Saints day, and from 3,000

pensed with at the inauguration ceremonies this year,
and that a reception will be substituted, to be held

House.--Where are they drifting. A Mr. Hey-
wood, in conversation with a Herald reporter, said
that the followers of free love doctrine are rapidly
multiplying all over the country, and added that the
New England Association is the nucleous of a nation-
al organization soon to be formed, with headquarters
in New York. A petition liberally signed had been
forwarded to the Massachusetts Legislature, asking to
have the laws against polygamy repealed.---The
census takers of the Young Mens' Christian Associa-
tion of Jersey City report that there are thirty-five

man called at a fashionable card engraver's, and asked
if he was patronized by counts and marquises. The
truthful tradesman replied that he could not tell a lie
-that most of the nobi!itv of Europe sent to him for
their cards. Then," said the artless girl, "give me
a dozen assorted princes arid dukes, and barons and
earls, and counts-their cards, I mean-for I want
them to put in my card basket and make the other
girls feel sick when we come to swap fibs about the
fellows who didn't call on us."-Chicago Tribune.--
More likely.-A statue of Silence, recently unveiled
in New York, turns out to be a female figure, with her

is very much more in the figure of Speech. This is
surely most libellous.-Punch.--Queen Victoria

New York, the new gentleman's fashion of shooting
at .ladies who decline proposals of marriage by sen-
tencing one of the latest exhibitors to ten years' im-

discourage one of the noblest of our national sports."
---When and how to eat fruit.-When fruit does
harm it is because it is eaten at improper times, in
improper quantities, or before it is ripened and fit for
the human stomach. A distinguished physician has
said that if his patients would make a practice of eat-
ing a couple of good oranges before breakfast, from
February to June, his practice would be gone. The
principal evil is that we do not eat enough of fruit;
that we injure its finer qualities with sugar; that we
drown them in cream. We need the medicinal action
ot the pure fruit acids in our system, and their cooling
corrective influence. Me dical Journal.

From the Turks Island Royal Standard, Jani/. 27.
REVENUE.
The Import duties, amounting to 3.524 12/2,
compared with the previous year 1875. show an in-
crease over decrease of 174 11/8. The incre-se
has arisen principally on alcohol, henns and peas,
brend, cigars, wheat, flour, corn meal. larnt, lumber
and shingles, salted meat, molasses and syrup oils,
paints, rice, swine, wine, and consequent to the in-
crease, the additional duty of 25 per cent on the
amount of duties collected ; the increase on the re-
maining articles of Import amount altogether only
to 1 14/6. The decrease on Imports are on ale
and porter, bay water, butter, candles, cheese,
chocolate, coffee, cordage, corn, dried and pickled
fish, pitch and tar, gin, soap, sugar, tea, tobacco
and advalorem duties. Under the head of Other
Sources," the Royalty on Salt is the most promin-
ent item of increase, showing by comparison that
there wete exported in 1876 of that production
2,030,258 bushels, giving a revenue of 2,960 17/9,
against 1,840,389 bushels and 2,684 0/7 in 1875-
being an increase in bushels of 189,869 and 276
17/2 in revenue. And what is also noteworthy, the
quantity of Salt exported in 1876 is the largest on
record ever exported from these Islands, in any one
year; and in this instance may well be attributed
to the Ground Salt exported (304,107 bushels)
which otherwise would not have been disposed of.
The Cave Earth or Guano exported, paying a Roy-
alty of 40 18/, is a new item, and therefore does
not admit of a 'comparison. The Light duty
amounting to 946 6/4 shows an increase of 98
6/4 over that of the preceding year. The amount of
221 12/1, arising from Sales of Government pro-
perty, and which shows an increase of 201 13/4
over that of 1875, is owing chiefly to the sale of
furniture, &c., at Government House. The other
principal amounts of increase are from Auction
Duties, Police Fines, Fees of Office, Postage, Wine
Lincences, Derelict Property, Sales of Land, and
Profits of Public Bank; the decrease is in Post
Office Money Order Commissions, Postage Stamps
sold abroad, Dog Tax, Lease of Land, and the in-
cidental rent of premises at Waterloo; making the
increase over decrease to be 81 9/1. The total
Revenue for 1876, exclusive of a balance of 980
18/11 from 1875, amounts to 8,596 9/2, exceeding
that of 1875 by 873 15/7.

The New York Herald of the 22nd ultimo, con-
tains an appalling tale of shipwreck, hunger and
death, which occurred on board the British Barque
Maria, Captain Grayson, of Yarmouth, Nova
Scotia, built in 1863. The Maria, a vessel of 500
tons burthen, with a crew of 14 men, left Darien,
Ga., on the 21st Novr. last, laden with timber,
bound to Belfast, Ireland. Shortly alter leaving
port the vessel began to leak badly, soon became
waterlogged and fell over on her side in which
position she remained till her masts broke cff, when
she again righted-the crew, which bad been on
her side for days with the s a breaking over them
-now returned to the deck which was still rather
under water. The decks had been swept of every
article and the ships stores were beyond their
reach being stowed below. Starvation from hunger
and thirst stared them in the face. On the 32nd
day the Maria was fallen in with and 2 only of the
14 which left Darien in her were taken off alive,
and one of these only survived his rescue 4
hours, The survive told a tale of cannabalism
which cannot be surpassed-the "strong devouring
the weak, to be devoured in turn by the strongest."
Before being rescued they had twice fallen in with
vessels-each one after trying for days to render
them assistance, were compelled by the continued
stormy weather to abandon them to their fate.
The Maria had drifted quite out of the usual track
of vessels.

917,000, being an increase of about 27,000,000 over
that reported by the same authorities in 1875. So
far as Europe and America are concerned it is not
difficult to make a proximate estimate of their pop-
ulations. Most of the countries on the two con-
tinents take censuses at regular intervals. But the
number of inhabitants in Asia and Africa can only
be the subject of enlightened guesswork. What
purports to be the official census of China has always
been open to the most serious doubts. Good autho-
rities have insisted that the population of that coun-
try is reported, for Government purposes, at far
above--even twice-its real strength. Behm &
Wagner give it at 405,000,000, with 28,500,000 of
outlying people. This estimate, if correct, would
show a marked decrease from the census reported
to have been taken as far back as 1852, which put
the population of China at 450,000,000. The gain
in population in Asia alone is set down at 25,000,-
000. This advance is not attributable to the in-
crease of births over deaths during the year, but to
the ampler means of information which the com-
pilers of the work claim to have. The statistics
about Africa-excepting on its semi-civilized bord-
ers-are necessarily almost worthless. European
Powers afraid of Russia will be concerned to know
that she counts as her own 86,586,000 human beings,
both in Europe and Asia, which is an increase of
900,000 over the estimate of 1875. Some of this is
explained by the annexation of territory in Asia
during the year. The whole Turkish Empire, in-
cluding tributary states in Europe, Asia and Africa,
is said to have a population of 47,660,000; but that
of Turkey proper numbers only 8,500,000. There
is a computed increase of 1,200,000 over the area of
North and South America within the year. This


can be only conjecture. To illustrate how little
reliance can be placed on statistics which aim to
make a clean sweep of the habitable area and popu-
lation of this planet, it may be said that, according
to the work under notice, the land surface of the
globe seems to have decreased within a year by no
less than 83,349 square miles. This fact is not ex-
plained by the encroachment of the sea upon the
land, but simply by the rectification of surveys late-
ly made. The density of population to the square
mile for three continents is~given as follows: Eu-
rope, 82; Asia, 48, and America, 5J.

On April 7th Prince Leopold will be 24 years old.
It was at this age that his next elder brother was
created Duke of Connaught. Prince Alfred was
created Duke of Edinburgh at 22; and it is thought
probable that the youngest of the Queen's sons will
during the present Session receive a title and be
entitled to a seat in the House of Lords. What that
title will be is a matter of speculation, Some per-
sons fancy that the Queen will revive the dukedom
of her favorite uncle, the Duke of Sussex, but she
has not done so on the other occasions when the
opportunity presented. I suppose there would be
complications about "Imperial" and "Royal" if an
Indian title were taken, or otherwise why not make
H. R. H. Duke of Delhi.
Among the discoveries of Dr. Schliemann at
Argos were a large golden mask and an enormous
breastplate of gold. He also found the body of a
man, wonderfully preserved, especially the face.
The head was round, the eyes large, and the mouth
contained 32 fine teeth. There is, however, a diffi-
culty about preserving the remains. There were
also found 15 bronze swords with great golden
hilts-a mass of immense golden buttons splendid-
ly engraved, ornamented the sheaths of the swords ;
also two great golden goblets and a great quantity
of other objects in gold, articles in earthenviare, a
carved wooden box,several articles in chased crystal,
10 large cooking utensils of bronze, but no trace of
anything in iron or glass,


A curious statement is going about which. if it be
true, would go far to explain the more pacific atti-
tude of RuRssi at the Conference Tt is that the
Socialist demonstration in front of the Kasan Church
at St. Petersburg was organized in London, and was
a premature outburst of a very extensive conspiracy,
which would have assumed very large proportions if
war had once been declared between Russia and
Turkey. It is believed that the Polish refugees in
London, who are some of the principal supporters of
that International whereof we have heard so little of
late, were the organizers of this plot, and that the
Czar would, if he had entered upon a foreign war,
ha e found himself face to face with a domestic
difficulty of most serious dimensions,
Apropos of the negotiations for a new French
Treaty of Commerce, I have good reason to believe
that communications have passed between Lord
Derby and Lord Lyons as to the manner in which
the representations made by deputations from com-
mercial bodies shall be dealth with. Several im-
portant questions of principle as to bounties, ad va-
lorem duties, customs duties, &c, will be brought at
once to the notice of the French Government by the
English Ambassador at Paris. The question as to
the place at which the treaty will be personally
discussed and settled is yet undecided, though most
likely it will be at Paris. In that event Lord Lyons
will have charge of the matter, assisted by some
official from the Foreign Office acquainted with the
details of commercial subjects.
Bismarck has a cause of quarrel with France
ready to hand if he wants any. There has been a
street row at Smyrna between French and German
sailors, and in the course of it a French sailor killed
a German. Marshal M>.,: .Tn's Government has
ordered a thorough investigation to be made into the
matter, but I suppose, if he were inclined to do so,
the German Chancellor would find it quite as easy
to make a casus belli out of this affair as Napoleon
did out of the withdrawn candidature of Prince
Leopold of Hohenzollern for the Spanish Throne.
The new yachting Lloyd's will be ready for work
in about three weeks' time. Mr. Welch (late Gov-
ernment designer and surveyor of revenue cruisers)
and two other gentlemen are preparing the rules for
building. Whereupon the old Lloyd's, which has
hitherto declined to have anything to do with yachts,
has expressed its willingness to undertake the
business.
Lloyd's people have been giving a new reading to
Shalspeare's words, "The quality of mercy is not
strained." The other day they had to deal with two
members who, having private information of the
loss of the Windsor Castle, reinsured their risks with
underwriters who had not heard the news. In other
words, they attempted a scheme which is very much
like a fraudulent one ; and yet not more fraudulent,
one would say, than that of a man who, hearing of a
great event, sells worthless shares at a premium.
One well-known house made its fortune in this way.
Only, such behaviour could not be permitted at
Lloyd's, and the peccant members were promptly
ejected. They have not been out long. Applying
for re-admission they found a forgiving committee
and they are once again to be see n in their old
places. Their eviction was intended only as a
demonstration and not as a punishment.
It is like us that we build enormous guns in order
apparently to burst them. For the past twelve
months the authorities at Woolwich have been
making a plaything out of the 81 ton gun. They
have fired charges which it was not originally intend-
ed to bear. They have improved the bore. They
have drilled holes through it which they knew would
weaken it; and at last they have attained their ob-
ject. They have split the steel lining which cases
the bore. As it looks foolish to spend thousands in
building a gun and to spend further thousands in
smashing it, the artillerists declare that they had ex-
pected this all along; and, like Toots, they cry that
it does not matter. They can still fire it as of old.
Indeed the steel lining of the Woolwich Infant is
cracked, and all steel linings are liable to fracture.
Here, then, is a great chance for the inventor.
Wanted some metal presenting a hard smooth
surface, but not brittle. The man who shall dis-
cover this desideratum will be conferring a favour
on his country, and will make his name famous in
the history of guns. Whether he will be rewarded
depends upon the Wai Office.
I should think that Mr. Gladstone got more false-
hoods told about him every day than there are fingers
on his hands. I have come across two recently. In
one instance it was stated that Mr. Gladstone intends
again to lead the Liberal party, in which case, of
course, he is a lying hypocrite when he disclaims any
such intention and asks to be allowed to serve as a
private soldier. I am assured that Mr. Gladstone
has declined to lead the party again and he said at
Frome only what he had previously said to Earl
Granville and the Marquis of Hartington. So that
story may be set aside. In the other instance Mr.
Gladstone is credited with an intention to support
the reform of the Vaccination Acts. He is said to
be in favor of making them permissive. I suppose,
of giving men like the Keighley Guardians the right
not to vaccinate if they think right. I have no in-
formation on this point, but I fancy that I may devine
the story without information. Mr. Gladstone, it
is true, withheld his opinion on the vaccination con-
troversy. But never that I remember did he shew
the least disposition to set himself up as a medical
authority. In this case the faculty, whether the
allopathic or the homceopathic branch, is a unit in
support of vaccination.
Naval men will, I understand, soon have a sur-
prise. In a few weeks there will be launched from
a well-known dockyard, an engineering friend tells
me, a torpedo boat that has been built, sub rosa, by
order of the Government. It has been constructed


on a new principle, and the advantages claimed for
it are small draught, great speed, and when it is in
the water almost invisibility. A crew of six men
will man it-two officers and four A. B's. Thatthe
Admiralty have thorough faith in the invention
seems obvious, for they have directed other boats
of the same kind ot be built.

Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. IoL'TZ's Hlair b)ye has not the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to the hair an unnatural vulgarly color.
Guided by his medical knowledge and his
great chemical experiences, DL. HOLTZ has
succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give
the richest balsamic dyeing and curative essen-
ces, and it is by this study that he succeeded to
compound a dye which may be styled as the
Regenerator by excellence of the chevelure.

To retain the whole of the properties of lMustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few
moments a decided result with the smallest possible
quantity 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 int) every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer-
geney renders it an invaluable remedy for various
disorders.

IMPORTANT NOTICE.
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 nervou, persons, I strongly recommend the fol-
lowing 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.
