The Parque Sir G. F. Seymour was up at London
for Bermuda, to leave on the 8th inst.
The following was kindly sent to us on Saturday
last by C. M. Allen: Esqr., Consul for the United
States:-
Dr. Hamlin brought to me yesterday the Quarter-
board of a vessel which he picked up on the Southside
of Smith Parish, with the name Joaquina de Barr's."
It, apparently, had been in the water but a short time,
as it was perfectly clean.
I find in the record of Foreign and American Ship-
ping, a vessel called the "JoAquina de Barreras," brig,
130 ton _IRelonging to Blanes. Spain; owner-M. So-
a; built at Blanes, in 1870."

ARRIVAL OF THE ADMIRAL.
II. M. S. Bellerophon, Capt. F. T. Thomson, bear-
ing the Flag of Vice Admiral Sir Astley Cooper Key,
K.C.B., F.R.S., Naval Commander-in-Chief on this

which port she left on 7th instant. The gallant Ad-
miral we are pleased to understand, is in the enjoyment
of excellent health.
The Flag-ship was accompanied by H. M. Ships
Encounter and Dryad.
We are informed that the Bellerophon will go into
Dock shortly.
The following is a list of the places visited by the
Admiral during his absence-during which time he had

FATAL ACCIDENT.-The body of a boy named
Albert Alexander Young, son of Mr. Stephen
Young, aged 15 years and 5 months, was found in
the water on the North Shore of this Parish near
Place's rock, on the evening of Friday last. The
youth, it seems, went to the shore soon after noon,
provided with a rope and creeper, for the purpose of
securing a plank which he had seen'drifting towards
the rocks. Not returning to his home as soon as
expected his mother went in search of him, but fail-
ed to find him. Later in the evening some of the
neighbours who subsequently went in search of the
boy found his body in the water as above stated,
below a cliff of some thirty feet high, and from
which it is supposed he fell into the sea, as the rope
with the creeper attached, was found with one end
secured to the top of the cliff,
An Inquest was held on ,the body on the follow-
ing morning by C. C. Keane, Esqr., Coroner, and a
Verdict in accordance with the above was returned.

An Inquest was held at Tucker's Town, St.
George Parish, on the 17th instant, before Denis
Tucker, Esqr., Coroner, on view of the body of A-
menda Althea Richardson, who was accidentally
drowned in Castle Harbouron the 8th by the over-
turning of an open boat in which she had taken pas-
sage for St. George. Verdict accordingly.

HALIFAX, March 5.-The captain of the steamer
Newfoundland, which arrived here yesterday,
brought the life buoy of the steamer lhGeorge Crom-
vicll, which was picked up in Placentia Bay.
Some flour and pork dlifled ashore at the same
place. No further trace of the vessel and crew has
been discovered. The wreck of the Washington
is covered with fifteen feet of water at Cape Race.
Twenty-two bodies have been recovered and buried,
It seems probable that on striking the rock the
boilers exploded, as the bodies picked up are dis-
figured, mutilated and denuded of clothing, with no
appearance of hair on the beads, brains gone and
scalps much torn.
'The Hon. James Cochrane, a member of the Ex-
ecutive and Legislative Councils of Nova Scotia,
died at his residence in Halifax, N.S., on the 6th
instant.
The British Mediterranean fleet left Pirmeus on
the 4th instant on its way to Malta,


-In the Army and Navy Gazette of the 3rd instant
we find the following announcement:-
The Queen has been pleased to appoint Colonel
Laffan, Royal Engineers, to the Governorship of
Bermuda, which will shortly become vacant by the
retirement of Major-General J. H. Lefroy, C.B.,
Royal- Artillery."
We presume from the wording of the above notice
that the appointment of Colonel Laffan to the Gov-
ernment of these Islands is beyond doubt.
A writer in the Irish Times, speaking of Colqnel
Laffan, says: "As a Military Engineer the Colonel
stands in the foremost rank, and I know no man
better fitted for the Governorship of an important
fortress such as Bermuda."

VWith reference to our notice in a previous nu" -
ber regarding the endeavour made to organize a
Volunteer movement in this Colony we have re-
ceived a request from the Honorable Henry Fow-
ler to publish a letter he has received from His
Excellency the Governor on the subject, which will
be found in our columns to-day.
It appears the question is to be submitted to Her
;Majesty's' Gvernment so that no further steps can
be taken in the matter until a reply is received.
We think it inopportune to discourse the merits
of the proposed movement pending the decision of
'the Secretary of State, as it is impossible to predict,
what view will be taken of the proposal, but if the
Executive Government have seen reasons to with-
-hold its approval of a similar proposal in 1867, we
suppose the same objections ,exist now whibh will
require.to,be removed before any movement of the
kind can be carried to a successful issue.

Mrs. Bravo marries again.-Mrs. Bravo, whose
husband died some time ago at Balbam, under
strong suspicion of having been poisoned, has just
got married for the third time at Cannes. The
third husband evidently does not share the popular
suspicion in regard to the lady's mania for getting
rid of matrimonial encumbrances,

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
At four o'clock in the morning of the first Friday
in March the counting of the votes of the different
States was concluded at Washington, and by a
majority of one in three hundred and sixty-nine
votes, Hayes was declared elected. The more des-
perate members of the Democratic party forced the
fight as long as they could. After their more con-
servative associates had decided to act with them,
after it had become evident to every one that their
discomfiture was certain, they refused to accept de-
feat and by their destructive tactics made a pro-
tracted night session necessary, and gave to their
final discussions a riotous and disorderly character.
They impaired greatly the force of their complaints
and the strength of their position by the extrava-
gance of their conduct. They were without dignity
or composure in defeat. They ranted at everybody
and everythingabused the parties, candidates, and
the arbitrators through and by whom they asserted
they had been deprived of their rights. Their action
was in a great measure atoned by the moderation of
the more discreet Democrats, without whose help
the Republicans would have been powerless in the
House of Representatives and must have elected
their man, had they elected him at all, without de-
finite action by the popular branch of Congress. It
was a relief to all when the long and hard contest
was concluded; and when the violent alternatives
which entered into the conflict are considered, when
the charges and counter charges of fraud and the
unavoidable embarrassments presented by close and
doubtful votes are taken into account, the country is
to be congratulated that good sense and good feel.
ing were strong enough to show and insist upon a
peaceful way out of the troubles.
The new President was publicly inaugurated
on the 5th of March, having been sworn
in previously so as to avoid any lapse of the- office,
the term of his predecessor ending at noon on a
Sunday. His inaugural address-which will be
found in another column-was in the best spirit.
It is clear and strong on the two important ques-
tions of civil service reform and the pacification of
the Southern States. The military policy in the
disaffected States has failed, and it.is time after
eight years trial to resort to some other. In many
of the Southeru States there have been for years
double elections of Governors and other State Offi-
cers, the voters who fought or sympathized with
ithe South during the war electing one set, the col-
ored people and settlers from the North electing
another. The general government has been called.
upon to recognize one of the two and to-let its sup-
port follow its recognition. This recognition and
support have been given to the officials elected by
the so called loyal voters, and the support wfas in
the shape of troops instructed to aid in maintaining
the local governments favored at Washington.
But this course brought no peace. The people were
dissatisfied. They desired a fair field for settling
their local differences, and have been demanding,
for some time that the United States should keep
their hands off and not continue to deal: with the
South as if it was still in rebellion. The new Pre-
sident proposes to pursue a policy which will make
unnecessary the presence of troops to control or af-
fect the internal government of the dissatisfied
States. In selecting his Cabinet he has taken men
of moderate views who have outgrown the war
I spirit and bitterness of former years. One of them
is a Southern Democrat who fought with the South
and voted against Hayes, but who is willing to as-
sist the President in his efforts to pacify and con-
ciliate the antagonisms existing within, the South-
ern States. So marked is this disposition of Presi-
dent Hayes that many of the strongest Republicans
are opposed to it, though it need not surprise them
as it accords with what he said in accepting the
! nomination for the Presidency. In the Senate this
opposition was so strong as to threaten a rejection
of the Cabinet. The unusual course was taken of
referring to committees the nominations for Cabinet
Officers generally confirmed by the Senate without
reference. But before the opposition could be o a
ganized it subsided. From all parts of the country
came approvals of the President's policy and the'
Republican Senators who had been ranging them-
selves against it were warned to behave better.
The hostility, aggressive and bold on Tuesday, be-
came alarmed by Saturday, and the nominations
were reported in a batch and confirmed almost with-
out dissent.
In truth, the country is tired of sectional strife
and asks a "new departure." Right or wrong, the
dullness and depression which rest on all business,
on all enterprises of profit or investment, are at-
tributed largely to ithe disturbed and unsettled con
edition of polities. Some other or further explana-
tion is required as the same depression in England
and on the Continent of Europe can scarcely be
traced to the dissensions in Louisiana and South
Carolina. But men who find the industries by
which they live idle, and the values in which they
have husbanded their gains shrunk and unproduc-
tive, are not apt to discriminate critically. Auln
they have come to think and hope that a better an 1
more quieting policy in the government would brin<
more confidence to capital and more spirit to trade,
so that enterprises of great pith and moment" now
languishing may revive, and new ones be brought
forward. Many of these who suffer and wait voted
for Tilden, as they would have voted for any man
of the party not in power, for a change." They
accept Hayes and cry out against the Senate so
loudly when they would interfere with him, that
opposition is stayed, and the new administration is
started with the fullest support and the most gene-
ral hopes in its success.

THE NEW GOVERNOR FOR BERMUDA.


MR. FOWLER presents his compliments to the Edi-
tor of the Royal Gazette" and will feel obliged if
the enclosed letter may appear in the next issue of
the Royal Gazette" for the information of those
who are interested in the Volunteer movement.
Westside, Hamilton, 17th March, 1877.

GOVERNMENT HOUSE,
16th March, 1877.
SIn,-Referring to your communication dated
18th January on the subject of the formation of a
Volunteer Rifle Corps in this Colony, I have the,
honor to inform you that I have given the subject
my careful consideration, but that I have found
upon enquiry obstacles in the way which make it
necessary that I should submit the proposition to
the Secretary of State before holding out a promise
of the acceptance of those services.
This course is. the more necessary as I have
learnt that a similar proposal was made about 10
years ago, and that the Executive Government of
that day saw reasons to withhold its approval.
I appreciate very highly the evidence of a manly
spirit and of a desire to discharge one of the first
duties of all Colonies, namely to be ready to aid in
their own defence, which is afforded by the move-
ment you have brought to my notice.
The possible Military value however of a small
Volunteer force, under contingencies which are
very remote, enters but slightly into my disposition
to take a favourable view of this proposal. Many
generations of Englishmen, it may be hoped, will
pass through the ranks of her Volunteer Forces
without being called into the field, but they will
have found reward enough in the acquisition of ha-
bits of discipline,;-a sense of self respect,-and
skill in the use of the Rifle.
These personal benefits are inseparably connected
with an efficient Volunteer movement on however
small a scale; they are reaped by the single com-
pany as well as by the Battalion.
It is not to be forgotten however that a Volunteer
Organization is attended with some expense both to
individuals and to the Public. It is not in my
power to predict the view the Legislature of the
Colony may take 'if any future call on the Public
Treasury for aid iu sustaining it.
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your Most. Obediefit Servant,
SJ.H. LEFROY,
SGovernor and Commander-in- Chief.
Honorable
HENRY FOWLER,

TELEGRAPH CABLE BETWEEN BERMUDA AND HALI-
FAX.-We have been kindly handed the following,
clipped from the London Standard of the 16th Feb.
ruary:-
"THE PROTECTION OF BERMUDA.-The importance
of having Bermuda connected by telegraph with
our nearest possessions has been engaging attention
for some time past, and we hear that it is'not im-
probable that a government telegraph cable will be
laid between Bermuda and Halifax."

THE PoULTu Y DESTROYER.-We understand an
attempt will be matde to destroy the animal, refer-
red to in our last issue, and .now supposed to be a
racoon or some species of the weasel tribe,
which has been committing such depredations
in the neighboring Parishes, and with this view we
have been requestrd to state that if any parties will
leave word at the Public Buildings whose premises
have been visited 'by the animal on the previous
night a party with dogs will be at once organized
to endeavour to eatc-h the depredator.
It is essentially necessary that information
should be given as sqon as possible so that no time
may be. lost.in taljng up the scent or track of the'
animal and fixing its whereabouts.
The animal must, have escaped from ship, or else
it is a domesticated pet broke loose.

From the -~w York Herald, March 6.


THE COLORED CITIZEN.
The evils which afflict the Southern States can
only be removed or remedied by the united and
harmonious efforts of both races, actuated by
motives of mutual sympathy and regard, and while
in duty bound and fully determined to protect the
rights of all by every constitutional means at the
disposal of my administration I am sincerely anx-
ious to use every legitimate influence in favor of
honest and efficient local self-government, as the
true resource of those States for the promotion of
the contentment and prosperity of their citizens.
In the effort I shall make to accomplish this pur-
pose I ask the cordial co-operation of all who cher-
ish an interest in the welfare of the country, trust-
ing that party ties and the prejudice of race will
be freely surrendered in behalf of the great purpose
to be accomplished. In the important work of res-
toration of the South it is not the political situa-
tion alone that merits attention. The material de-
velopment of that section of the country has been
arrested by the social and political revolution
through which it has passed, and now needs and
deserves the considerate care of the national gov-
ernment within the just limits prescribed by the
constitution and wise public economy.
EDUCATION.
But at the basis of all prosperity for that as well
as for every other part of the country lies the im-
provement of the intellectual and moral condition
of the people. Universal suffrage should rest upon
universal education. To this end liberal and per-
manent provision should be made for the support of
free schools by the State governments, and, if need
be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national
authority. Let me assure my countrymen of the
Southern States that it is my earnest desire to re-
gard and promote their truest interests-the inter-
ests of the white and of the colored people, both
and equally-and to put forth my best efforts in
behalf of a civil policy which will forever wipe out
in: our political affairs the color line and the dis-
tinction between North and South, to the end that
we may have not merely a united North or a united
South but a united country. I ask the attention of
the public to the paramount necessity of
REFORM IN OUR CIVIL SERVICE,
a reform not merely as to certain abuses and prac-
tices of so-called official patronage, which have
come to have the. sanction of usage in the several
departiuients of our government, but a change in the
system of appointment itself, .a reform that shall be
thorough, radical and complete, a return to the
principles and practices of the founders of the gov-
ernment. They neither expected nor desired from
public officers any partisan service. They meant
that public officers should owe their whole service,
to the government and to the people. They meant
that the officer should .be secure in his tenure as
long as his personal character remained untarnished
and the performance of his duties satisfactory.
They held that appointments to office were rnot to be
made nor expected merely as rewards for partisan
services, nor merely on the nomination of members
of Congress as being entitled in any respect to the
control of such appointments. The fact that both
the great political parties of the country, in declar-
ing their principles prior to the election, gave a
prominent place to the subject of reform of our


PRESIDENT HAYES' INAUGURAL.
Delivered in the Capitol Washington, on the
5th March, 1877.

FELLOW CITIZENS-We have assembled to repeat'
the public ceremonial, begun by Washington, ob-
served by all my predecessors and now a time hon-
ored custom, which marks the commencement of a
new term of the Presidential office. Called to the
duties of this great trust, I proceed, in compliance
with usage, to announce some of the leading prin-
ciples on the subjects that now chiefly engage the
public attention, by which it is my desire to be
guided in the discharge of those duties. I shall
not undertake to lay down, irrevocably, principles,
or measures of administration, but rather to speak
of the motives which should animate us, and to
suggest certain important ends to be attained, in
accordance with our institutions and essential to
the welfare of our country. At the outset of the
discussion which preceded the recent Presidential
election it seemed to me fitting that I should fully
make known my sentiments in regard to several of
the important questions which then appeared to
demand the consideration of the country. Follow-
ing the example, andin part adopting the language,
of one of my predecessors I wish now, when every
motive for misrepresentation has passed away, to
repeat what was said before the election, trusting
that my countrymen will candidly weigh and un-
derstand it, and that they will feel assured that the
sentiments declared in accepting the nomination
for the Presidency will be the standard of my con-
duct in the path before me, charged, as I now am
with the'grave and difficult task of carrying them
out in the practical administration of the govern-
ment, so far as depends under the constitution and
laws on the Chief Executive of the nation. The
permanent pacification of the country upon such
principled and by such measures as will secure the
complete protection of all its citizens in the free
enjoyment of all their constitutional rights, is the
one subject in our public affairs which all thought-
ful and patriotic citizens regard as of supreme im-
portance.
THE SOUTHERN STATES.
Many of the calamitous effects of the tremendous
revolution which has passed over the Southern
States still remain. The immeasurable benefits
which will surely follow, sooner or later, the hearty
and generous acceptance of the legitimate results
of that revolution have not yet been realized.
Difficult and embarrassing questions meet us at the
threshold of this subject. The people of those
States are still impoverished, and the inestimable
blessing of wise, honest and peaceful local self-
government is not fully enjoyed. Whatever differ-
ences of opinion may exist as to the cause of this
condition of things, the fact is clear that, in the
progress of events, the time has come when such
government is the imperative necessity required by
all the varied interests, public and private, of those
States. But it must not be forgotten that only a
local government which recognizes and maintains
inviolate the rights of all is a true self-govern.
meant.
With respect to the two distinct races whose pe-
culiar relations to each other have brought upon us
the deplorable complications and perplexities which
exist in those States,- it must be a government
which guards the interests of both races carefully
and equally ;. it must be a government which sub-
mitsiloyally and heartily to the constitution and
the laws--the laws 'of the nation and the laws of
the States themselves-accepting and obeying faith-
fully the whole' constitution as it is.
Resting upon this sure and substantial founda-
tion, the superstructure of beneficent local govern-
ments can be built up,'and not otherwise. In fur-
therance of such obedience to the letter and the
spirit of the Constitution, and in behalf of all that
Sits attainment implies all so-called party interests
lose their apparent importance, and party lines may
well be permitted to fade into insignificance. The
question we have to consider for the immediate
welfare of those States of the Union is the question
of government or no government, of social order,
and all the peaceful industries and the happiness
that belongs to it, or a return to barbarism. It is,
a question in which every citizen of the nation
is deeply interested, and with respect to which we
ought not to be, in a partisan sense, either republi-
cans or democrats, but fellow citizens and fellow-
men, to whom the interests of a common country
and a common humanity are dear.

THE TRAMP OF ARMED MEN.
VIENNA, March 14.--The Press publishes a, letter
from Jassy, giving a detailed Ordre de Battaille of
the mobilized portion of the Russian Army both in
Europe and the Caucasus. It says: Concentra-
tion and organization is so far ready.that the forces
may take the field at any moment. The South
Army comprises an active operating Army of four
corps d'armee, having an effective strength of 144,.
000 men, 32,800 horses, and 432 field guns; the
Coast Army, with 70,000 men, 16,400 horses, and
216 guns, and three corps d'armee in the Caucasus,
reckoned at an effective strength of 120,000 men,
25,000 horses, and 852 guns. This fully corres.
ponds to the war effective as systematized by the
organization of 1874."
LONDON, March 14.-The correspondent of the
Times with the Turkish Army telegraphs from
Fultseha as follows: "In the higher Turkish circles
it is believed that all danger of war is at an end.
On the other hand the news from Bessarabia is
very warlike. In the course of the'last few days
two Russian divisions have been pushed forward-
one of infantry, the other of Cossacks-the latter
with their headquarters at Kubei, close' on the
frontier. Military action on the part of Russia is
believed inevitable, and an order to march into -
Roumania is expected as soon as the weather per-
mits. At present any movement of the Army Is
impossible."
The Times of the 14th after giving the probable
next formula as telegraphed to the United States
in a previous dispatch says: One objec-
tion only .still remains and appears to cause a
slight hesitation. The contingency is foreseen
that one of the powers, less patient than the rest,
might complain of the Turkish tendencies and en-
deavour to force the powers to take, the matter into
consideration, according to the privilege contained
in the protocol. The reply to this objection, how-,
ever, is that it will be for a majority of the powers
to judge whether a fresh meeting is necessary.".
The Daily Telegraph's Paris dispatch and the
Time's leading article concur in contradicting the
assertion of the Paris Temps that the Russihan pro-
posal fixes a certain time as an interval of proba-
tion for Turkey.

g@ Bermuda Potatoes per "Canima," last trip,
$7"50 per brl.; .Tomatoes had gone down to $1*50;
Beets fetched $3-00; and one box of onions,-
the only one on board-sold for the fabulous price
of $8-00. These prices must not be taken as a gua-
rantee for the future, particularly the onions, and
shippers should be cautious'not to ship any more of the
latter till they are thoroughly ripe, as, if they are
crowded now into the market in a half-ripe state they
will bring the price down, and that once done mer-
chants and others know well the impossibility of get-
ting the price up again, and our onion crop will be
sacrificed this year as formerly.


civil service, recognizing and strongly urging its
necessity in terms almost identical in their specific
import with those I have here employed, must be
accepted as a- conclusive argument in 'behalf of
these measures. It must be regarded as the ex-
pression of the united voice and will of the whole
country upon this subject, and both political par-
ties are virtually pledged to give it their unreserved
support.
THE PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE.
The President of the United States of necessity
owes his election to office to the suffrage and zeal-
ous labors of a political party, the members of
which cherish with ardor and regard as of essential
importance the principles of their party organiza-
tion. But he should strive to be always mindful of
the fact that he serves his party best who serves
the country best. In furtherance of the reform
we seek, and in other important respects a change
of great importance, I recommend an amendment
to the Constitution prescribing a term of six years
for the Presidential office, and forbidding a re-elec-
tion.
BUSINESS.
With respect to the financial condition of the
country, I shall not attempt an extended history of
the embarrassment and prostration which we have
suffered during the past three years. The depres,
sion in all our varied commercial and manufacture
ing interests throughout the country which began
in September, 1873, still continues. It is very gra.
tifying, however, to be able to say that there aie
indications all around us of a coming change to
prosperous times. Upon the currency question,
intimately connected as it is with this topic, I mniay be
permitted to repeat here the statement made in my
letter of acceptance, that in my judgment the feel-
ing of uncertainty inseparable from an irredeem-
able.
PAPER CURRENCY,
with its fluctuations of values is one of the greatest
obstacles to a return to prosperous times. The only
safe paper currency is one which rests upon a coin
basis, and is at all times and promptly convertible
into coin. I adhere to the views heretofore expres-
sed by me in favor of Congressional legislation in
behalf of an early resumption of specie payments,
and I am satisfied not only that this is wise but
that the interests as well as the public sentiment of
the country imperatively demand it.
*
Upon one point there is entire unanimity in pub.
lie sentiment, that conflicting claims to the Presid.
ency must be amicably and peaceably adjusted, and
that when so adjusted the general acquiescence of
the nation ought surely to follow. It has been reserv-
ed for a government of the people where the right of
suffrage is universal, to give to the world the first
example in history of a great nation in the midst
of a struggle of opposing parties for power, hush.
ing its party tumults to yield the issue of the con.
test to adjustment according to the forms of law.
Looking for the guidance of that divine hand by
which the destinies of nations and individuals are
shaped, I call upon you Senators, Representatives,
judges, fellow-citizens, here and everywhere, to
unite with me in an earnest effort to secure to our
country the blessing not only of material prosper.
ity, but of justice, peace and union-a union de-
pending not upon the constraint of force, but upon
the loving devotion of a free people, that all things
may be so ordered and settled upon the best and
surest foundations, that peace and happiness, truth
and justice, religion and piety may be established
among us for all generations.


THE CHARGES AGAINST THE.DELAWARE AND HUD-
SON CANAL MANAoEMENT.---The suit of Anderson
for Ihe appointment of a receiver of the Delaware
& Hudson Canal Op. was argued in the Supreme
Court before Judge Lawrence to-day. Ex-Judge
Bosworth, for the plaintiff declared that owing to
:mismanagement and wrongful expenditure on un.
productive property and land lines the company
was practically insolvent. He said the company
bad guaranteed 7 per cent interest on the debt of
the Albany and Susquebanna Railroad to the
amount of $10,000,.00, which interest it had not
earned; 7 per cent on the debt of the Renssalaer &
Saratoga Railroad to the extent of $4,000,000, and
,on $4,000,000 of the New York and Canada Rail-
road, the entire earnings of the last named road
being but $92,400.' He contended that in the
company's last statement amounts had been put
down as assets which should have been charged to
expenses; that the amounts entered as cost of canal,
railroad, barges, &c, did not specify anything but
the first cost, whereas the cost of new locks, new
barges, &c., should be added and full allowance be
made for breakage by collision, loss and decay.
The real estate items of the statement were entirely
erroneous; the building on Church Street, New
York, was a constant source of loss; coal lands
bad been largely over-estimated, &c., &c. He as-
serted that on or about February 15 the company
made an unauthorized issue of $1,500,000 to pay
floatingk debt, iand that it owed $6Q4,000 over and
above the real assets. n
The answer alleges that the leases of the railroads
being 'perpetuated will,,when business revives, be a
permanent source of profit; that the building, on
Courtlantd street is just as profitable as any other
similar building in the city, and that the company
bold less than one-third of the railroad stocks al-
leged in the complaint-in all $8,266,200. They
deny wrongfully guaranteeing bonds of either rail-
roads. As to the New York and Canada Railroad
defendant guaranteed four million of bonds and re-
ceived four millions of stock, the road being built
for eight millions; defendants have all except 772
bonds, the rest being sold nearly at par; the net
earnings of that road last year were over $92,000.
Defendants also say that last year their profits
were $1,921,546. or, after deducting losses on the
1 based lines, $1,366,140 applicable to payment of
i e interest on defendants' own bonded debt; and
that they did pay, all the interest on their own
bonded debt out of it, amounting to"$1,580,120.
At the conclusion of an argument of several hours
the court reserved decision.
[The motion was subsequently denied with costs.]

From the Boston Transcript.
BLUE GLASS-ITS WONDERFUL PROPER-
TIES.
The blue-glass epidemic, which has swept over
New York. Philadelphia and Chicago, has reached
Boston and promises to be no less thorough in its rav-
ages here than in those localities. One hears about
it on the street, in horse cars, at hotel and restau-
rant tables, at church and at home. Homcepaths
are shutting up their little cases, Turkish baths are
at a discount, movement cures are waning in popu-
larity, the regular school are generally disgusted,
while glaziers and glass dealers are the happiest
and busiest men in the community. When Genl.
Pleasonton-who, by the way, is not the famous
cavalry officer, but his brother-published his book
some time ago, very little attention was paid to it.
Blue glass had been a hobby of that gentleman's
for years, and people who knew him generally re-
garded the idea as impracticable and absurd.
Certain curious people who read the book, however,
were tempted to experiment, and the result was
that they became converts to the theory, and made
known through the press the facts which had been
brought out by the tests they had made. This cu-
mulative proof, coming in several instances from
high sources, set others to experimenting. The
idea soon developed into a mania, and, it must be
confessed, a mania with a very respectable and rea-
sonable foundation. The waters in Boston began
to be troubled some three weeks ago. Glass deal-
ers about that time began to be surprised at the
sudden call for blue glass-a call which increased
every day. It occurred to a member of one of our
largest glass firms one day to ask a purchaser what
use he intended to make of the glass. He was in-
formed that it was for the "blue.glass cure."
A light flashed across him at once. He recognized
the fact that a tidal wave in that material was
surging Bostonward, and within forty-eight hours
all the available blue glass in the city was in the
control of the firm. Within the past week the
price-for the quantity in market is limited-has
quadrupled. Most of the blue glass is imported.
In the meantime one of our manufacturing firms
has begun a series of experiments in its manufac-
ture, bat how successful it will be remains to be
seen. The particular kind of glass used is of a vio-
let or mazarine blue tint. The color is derived
from a preparation of the metal cobalt, which is
fused in the pot with the ingredients composing the
glass. Its cost before the excitement was about
four times the cost of American window-glass of a
similar quality.
In a recently published letter, General Pleason-
ton gives some important information as to the
methods of using the glass. The light is better, he
believes, when coming from the south, though it is
beneficial coming from any quarter. "From my
own observation," he says, "I have developed the
most electro-magnetism when the atmosphere was
clearest and freest from cloudy or watery vapour,
the sun most brilliant, and the temperature
below 820 of Fahrenheit. The reason of this is
obvious. In such conditions of a cold, dry atmos-
phere, with strong, brilliant sunlight, more electric-
ity is' evolved than under any other conditions,
and there is less conducting power to carry it off
than when the air is moist and warm; consequent-
ly, more heat and magnetism are developed than
under any other circumstances. Patients suffering
from any disease should not neglect any occurrence
of these favorable conditions." In regard to plac-
ing the glass he remarks-
The best application of the associated blue and
sun lights is to put the glasses in the windows
themselves, for then the blue glass receives the un-
mitigated force of the impact of the six primary rays
of light, travelling with the inconceivable velocity of
186,000 miles per second of time, which are stopped
by it-producing more friction and evolving more
electricity, and, consequently, more beat and mag-
netism than would be the case if the velocity of
these rays of light was retarded by passing through
successive media of transparent or translucent
glass of various densities, thus reducing the force
of their impact. In the cases of windows being
glazed with plate-glass of large dimensions, I have
recommended some of my friends to have one or
two sashes made of the size of their window frames,
have them glazed with plain transparent glass and
blue glass, in panes of the sizes of eight by ten
inches or ten by twelve inches, and either to sub-
stitute them for the sashes containing the plate-
glass (which is the better plan), or to attach them
to the inside of such sashes, and allow the sunlight
and the blue light to pass through both sashes into
the apartment."
But the cure of diseased human beings is only
one of the many uses to which this new discovery
is put. Its effect upon the growth of plants and
fruit, and even upon animals, is stated by compe-
tent and abundant authority to be almost marvel-
lous.
In his book General Pleasonton states that in
the course of his experiments, some years ago, he
became convinced that blue rays were especially
stimulating to vegetables. He built a large grap-
ery, covered with glass, every eighth row of which
was blue. He set out twenty varieties of grape, all
the cuttings one year old, the size of a pipe stem,
and cut close to the ground. The vines soon be-
gan to show a most vigorous growth, and in a few
weeks the grapery was filled with vines and foliage.
By September-or five months after setting--the
vines had grown forty-five feet in length, and were
an inch in diameter a foot above the ground. The
next year the vines displayed the same vigorous
growth, and, in addition, bore over 1,200 pounds of
luscious grapes of unusual size. From that day to


this the vines have kept up the' same vigorous
growth, being entirely free from disease and de-
structive insects, and bearing with proportionate
prolificness. In regard to its effects upon animals, he
says that from experiments made upon his farm he
has proved that they can be rendered productive at
a much earlier period than at present. An expe-
riment was made with a number of chicks just
hatched, and it was found that when they were
exposed to the blue light they became garmented
with--feathers within twenty-four hours, while two
wdeks are required under ordinary circumstances.
The theory of General Pleasonton, as stated by
himself, is this:
Sunlight passes through plain, transparent
glass with very slight obstruction, as it does
through the atmosphere and ether of space ; it pro-
duces.no heat, for the glass remains as cold as
the outside atmosphere while the sunlight passes
through it. When, however, the adjoining sun-
light, moving with the same velocity as the first
mentioned,viz., 186,000 miles per sec., falls upon the
blue panes of glass, six of the seven primary rays
of sunlight :re suddenly arrested by it, only the
blue ray being permitted to pass through it into
tihe apartment. The sudden stoppage of these six
rays of light with this enormous velocity produces
friction; this friction evolves negative electricity,
which is the electricity of sunlight passing through
the cold ether of space and. our cold atmosphere,
both of which being negatively electrified impart
their electricity by induction to the rays of the
sunlight as they pass. The blue glass is oppositely
electrified. When these opposite electricities thus
brought together, meet at the surface of the glass,
their conjunction evolves heat and magnetism ; the
heat expands the molecules of the glass, and a cur-
rent of electro-magnetism passes into the room,
imparting vitality and strength to any animal or
vegetable life within it. When the atmosphere of
the room becomes thus electro-magnetised its in-
habitants cannot fail to derive the greatest benefit
from being in it."


Notwithstanding the fact that. a patent has been
issued to General Pleasonton for his discovery, be
generously refuses to reap any benefit therefrom.
1 "Whoever desires to experiment with it, whether
upon vegetable or animal life," he says, "let them
go ahead. If it is upon vegetable life, the propor-
tion of blue glass to transparent should be about
one-eighth ; if upon animal life, let it be about
equal-one-half blue and one-half transparent.
The glass used is a dark, purplish blue, and can be
obtained almost anywhere. Get a few panes of it
cut to the size of your window panes, and insert
them alternately in the sash, and then let the lame,
the halt and the blind sit within its influence."
From what we have already said, it will be seen
that the public have taken him at his word. It
will be well, however, for those who have rushed
and those who are preparing to rush into a wild
series of experiments, to prepare for some measure
of disappointment. While there is undoubtedly
much virtue in the blue rays of sunlight, everyone
may not be affected alike by them, and some may
even be injured by the peculiar treatment suggested.
Two or three years will suffice to give a fair trial of
the capabilities of the blue glass theory, and we
shall then know its precise and permanent place
in the catalogue of remedial and stimulating
agents.
SOUTH AMERICA.
In the summary of news in the Jamaica Instructor
of February 8, we find some items of distressing
intelligence from one of the towns of the Pacific,
forming part of the -United States of Columbia.
Revolutions and counter-revolutions are of such
frequent occurrence in these places that it is seldom
one of those events give rise to anything more than
slight commotion. It was not to be wondered at,
therefore, that a revolution that had been started
In the Cauca against the legitimate government
months ago was allowed to continue without, appa-
rently, causing concern to those most interested.
The result has been that a deed of a most revolting
character, equalling if not surpassing in brutality
those atrocities in Bulgaria which have stamped the
Bashi-Bazouks, and even officers of the Turkish
regular army as fiends in the form of human beings.
The story is, as we have said, a most distressing
one, the scene of devastation being a promising
town in the Cauca, called Call, which contained,
previous to the massacre, 20,000 inhabitants. On
7th December last this town fell into the hands of
one of the party contending for supremacy ; intel-
ligence of this having reached a bloodthirsty tyrant
named Pena (a liberal), who held the post of Gene-
ral in the opposing party, he collected an "army"
of 2,000 men, composed of convicts whom he had
released from prison and other similar characters,
villains of the deepest dye, he marched upon the
doomed town, promising his ruffians the privilege
of sacking it. They were armed with rifles, old
muskets, cutlasses, axes and crowbars, and on
Christmas day entered Call. "In a dense mass,"
says an eye-witness, "of mingled horse and foot,
they advanced on the municipality a dusky crowd of
yelling miscreants, bedizened with red ribbons and
streamers, made mad with drink, and thirsting for
blood and destruction. They advanced upon the
municipality, which was held by the Conservatives,
who blew up the magazine with the intention of
destroying themselves and their adversaries in the
ruins. Fortunately for the town only a few boxes of
cartridges ignited, and the destruction was chiefly
among the inmates. Just then Pena rode into the
town after his men, and like them was the worse
for liquor. He gave orders for the town to be
sacked, allowing his banditti five hours to slay, to
rob and to outrage the defenceless inhabitants at
discretion. It is needless to add that his orders
were too enthusiastically obeyed, and the scenes of
horror that followed are too appalling to relate. In
Commercial Street, out of twenty house that exist-
ed before the attack only four remain, and in other
parts of the town two or three by mere accident es-
caped. It mattered not to the mob if friend or foe,
native or foreign suffered-all shared alike. The
property of foreigners destroyed amounts to about
150,000 or 200,000 dollars. Several estates were
destroyed.
Later accounts from the Panama Star and Herald
whilst they confirm, with all their attendant brutal-
ties, the fiendish acts related above, add that the
victims of this murderous assault numbered at least
800. Bent on plunder and murder, these fiends
robbed and cut down all ranks and conditions alike

EXTRAORDINARY TELEGRAPHIC DISCOVERY.-It
has often been said that the science of telegraphy
is as yet only in its infancy. What it will be
when it reaches the age of maturity it would be
difficult to say with certainty, but some idea may
be formed from an extraordinary telegraphic dis-
covery just made in Paris. It appears that some
inventor has found out the means of sending por-
traits by telegraphy. The modus operandi has not
yet been disclosed, but experiments have been
made, and-if we are to believe the papers-with
complete success. The trial was made by the po-
lice authorities of Paris and Lyons. The portrait
of a Lyons official was forwarded from Paris by
the new telegraph.ic apparatus, and at once recog-
nized. In return the Lyons police telegraphed to
Paris the portrait, accompanied by the usual des-
cription of a clerk who had just absconded with
his master's money, and the Paris police, thanks
to the telegraphic portrait, were enabled to arrest
the thief on his alighting from the train at the


Lyons Railway station. The facts are published
on the best authority, and, incredible as they
may be seen, are no doubt authentic.-Standard.

" Eau" of Dr. IIoltz for
HAIR DYE.

fTItIIS WATER is of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. IIOLTZ'S Hair D)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, Da. HOLTZ has
succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give
the richest balsamic dyeing and curative es3en-
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.

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
quantity ot 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. BOUCHARDAT
Annuaire therapentique ann6e 1868, p. 204.
T 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 nervous 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.
