rlHFE Judges in the report said : It seems
undisputed that WEBER has distanced all
competition, and must beto-day recognized as the
Piano-maker par excellence of the world, and the
musical jury has but stamped the seal of the
American Centennial Exhibition upon the gener-
ally awarded verdict of every vocalist and musi-
cian by the award which gives the medal to A.
WEBER, of New York, for sympathetic, fine and
rich tone combined with greatest power as shown
in three styles, Grand, Square and Upright Pi-
anos, which show intelligence and solidity in
their construction, a pliant and easy touch, which
at the same time answers promptlyto its re-

A LOOKER ON.


March 26, 1877,


Our noble master rides of course
As straight as rod of gun
And crams his 17 handed horse
At post and rails like fun;
No walls too big to daunt the heart
Of that immense giraffe
He leads the way with tootling horn
And eke with words of chaff.
'With a hey! ho! &c."
3.
Between the pigskin and the cord
No daylight doth appear,"
That seat so good at festive board
Is tight as beeswax here;
That agile courser swiftly kims
Like swallow o'er the plains
And ever for that dulcet horn
The leading place maintains.
With a hey! ho! &o.
4.
With eye so keen to lay a line
To spare the growing crops,
His Roman nose an onion twigs
E'er o'er a fence he hops
Oh I woe betide the luckless wight
Who rides across potatoes
But direr still the fate of him
Who mashes up tomatoes.
With a hey! -ho! &c.


Then join with me, ye sporting blades
And drink to paper chasing !
A First Rate thing to kill the time
Until we come to Racing!
Lets once a week forget our cares
When seated in the saddle
And after F- r's 2 legged hares
"O'er stock and stone" skedaddle.
With a hey! ho! &c.

SIMPLE VERSES ON SOME PROVERBS.
"Even as a Father the son in whom he delighteth."
PRov. in, 12.
'Tis not in angry bitterness, but in love
That chastisement is sent us from above,
That sudden grief oppresses the sad heart,
That joys and pleasures rapidly depart,
That clouds o'er all the sunny prospect spread,
Fond hopes like autumn leaves lie round us dead,
When bitterness upon our spirits fall
We cannot see the meaning of it all
Until we know the deeper bliss of Heaven
And GOD's own peace our very natures leaven
Then shall we see a loving meaning shine
From all GOD'S dealings, and the plan divine
Which mingles sorrow with life's cup of joy
With its sweet, bitter, with its gold, alloy;
We'll bless the hand that strikes, and kiss the rod,
And own a chastening Father as our GoD.
LoTOPAGOus.
Her price is far above Rubies.
PRov. xx x, 10.
GoD has given me a woman with a sweet fair face,
A tender voice, and a manifold soft grace,
To be my Wife
And to bless my life
With deep and true love which changes never,
A confident trust which increaseth ever,
As years roll by,
Whether the sky
Above me be sunny, or lowering and black,
Though joy be my portion, or grief's thorny track
Lie beaten before me; the tender embrace -
Of my Wife, and the love in her glance which I trace
Make my heart full of gladness
Drive away from me sadness
And though without wealth, make me rich as a
King.

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE


THE STRAITS SETTLEMENTS.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR SIR,-I met with the following very interesting
Report from the American Consul at the Straits Set-
tlements to his Government, for the year 1874, which I
think may interest your readers and the Bermudians,
which I think marks high intelligence and observation
and if some enterprising Bermudians were to embark
in the enterprise it would be gratifying to know that
they were rewarded with success.
March 21st, 1877. 3.
"The chief events of mark occurring in the Straits
of Malacca and the Straits Settlements were first the
war with the Netherlands against the Sultanate of
Acheen, Sumatra; and second the advent of the new
Governor Sir Andrew Clarke and his excellent official
acts ever since, which deserve an illustration and special
mention, since in due course of time they will tend to
increase commerce and navigation, agriculture and
civilization.
"Soon after the arrival of Sir Andrew Clarke, the
new Governor of the Straits Settlements, he set to
work to do that which his predecessors had failed to
accomplish, viz., to perfect the annexation of the inde-
pendent Malayan States on the west coast of Malacca,
west of Siam, and lying between the British provinces
of Malacca and Wellesley, bordering on the Straits of
Malacca.
Those States had many years ago entered into
treaty negotiations with the British authorities of the
Straits Settlements, but failing ratification by the
home government, they remained independent. They
all being exceedingly rich in soil and minerals, as tin
chiefly, gold and galena, they attracted a large num-
ber of Chinese labourers. The province of Larut,
adjoining the British provinces of Wellesley on the
south side, is especially rich in tin, and contributes
,largely to the commerce of Penang. Sir Andrew
Clarke accomplished all he undertook, he exercised
great tact, forbearance and firmness in all he did,
tempered with charity and justice. Whether on duty
here or on the coast of Malacca, he inspires confi-
dence. He is a man possessed of excellent qualitie
and lofty, noble principles, and towards Americans he
is very friendly, well inclined, and obliging, and is
anxious to foster and encourage our commercial in-
ternational interests and mutual good feeling.
"This region of country is steadily growing in im-
portance, and it is most important that it should be
ruled by wise, circumspect, just and experienced men.
"The Straits Settlements being a free British Colo-
ny, with free ports, trade and agriculture, not suffer-
ing from government or other monopolies like the Is-
lands south of the Straits of Malacca, will have a
very bright and splendid future; for in addition to
the immense and inexhaustible mineral wealth of
which they are possesses, they are of an equally in-
exhaustible fertility. All these States have natural
highways, beautiful, broad, large rivers of pure water
having their sources in the mountain chains traver-
sing the peninsula of Malacca from north to south,
forming boundaries between Siam and the Malayan
States and provinces of Wellesley and Malacca. Of
these rivers several are navigable for a long distance,
I will mention the Peirak river as magnificent-at
least one hundred and fifty miles from its mouth it is
over 400 feet wide, and as the tidal influence extends
a very short distance it may well be imagined what
rich and fertile lands are found along its entirely
timber covered valley. The resources of the interior
are as yet almost unknown and entirely undeveloped,
the soil is covered with such a luxuriant vegetation as
probably is nowhere else to be found on the globe,
wonderful and something only to be appreciated when
seen. If capitalists can be induced to undertake the
cultivation of tobacco, sugar, coffee, indigo, rice and
spices besides establishing saw and planing mills
along the valley of the Peirak they will soon prove
the success with which they work. The climate is as
good as any in the tropics; low lands are unhealthy
but elevated lands are perfectly delightful; at 1000
feet above sea level the heat hardly ever ranges over
85 0 nor less than 600 to 650 and always be sure of
a breeze and rain in intervals of several days. Chi-
nese, Malayans and Hindoo laborers can be easily ob-
tained at a very low rate of wages, and if the planters
here could get a few practical American planters to
go among them and show them what our ploughs and
other agricultural implements and power of draught
can accomplish they would perhaps awake to a new
era of agriculture instead of using a great drove of
coolies with only hoes. This leads me to believe that
if some of our citizens of African descent, who under-
stand thoroughly the planting of sugar and tobacco,
and who are familiar with the best method of clearing
and cultivating timber land, would come here with a
little capital, bringing ploughs and other necessary
implements, they -would find a ready welcome, as
planters on their own account for they could get all
the land they would want for little or nothing, or as
overseers of plantations instructing native labourers
hw to plant and cultivate on improved principles. I
feel certain that with a little perseverance, industry,
and economy, they would in a short time become
wealthy. They could raise two crops of tobacco a
year, and Sumatra tobacco is of excellent quality,
sells in Amsterdam for a dollar a pound. I believe with
the same climate and soil and under the same latitude
would at least be fully as good; I know that the
Deli, Sumatra planters who were clerks at Singapore
or Penang knowing nothing whatever about planting,
make their fortune in 5 or 6 years at tobacco planting-
a plough has never been used to my certain know-
ledge-a great number of coolies at $4 or $5 a month
without their food are hired to cultivate the heavy
jungle land which is first cleared and burned over-
the coolies then hoe the ground and set out their
plants, these so-called planters never use the same
ground and yet in a few years as stated they make
fortunes-what would not an experienced agriculturist
accomplish, and how much valuable timber would be
saved annually-the commerce of the Straits Settle-
ments which is already great will be more than double
of the present time. Truly great will be the future of
the Straits Settlements under a wise and liberal Gov-
ernment, and I certainly look upon this Colony as
one of the richest among the many British Colonies."
The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs has sent
the following despatch to the Ottoman Embassador


at London:
The reforms proposed by the Conference and ac-
cepted by the Imperial Government are already be-
ing applied. They embrace two classes, viat., re-
forms resulting from organic laws, which will be
submitted to the Parliament, and reforms immedi-
ately applicable, which are as follows: 1. Reorga-
nization of the Gendarmerie, a scheme for which
has bee elaborated and handed to Colonel Baker
for consideration. 2. Division of the communes
into cantons, which will be done as soon as the
provincial authorities can assemble and send to
Constantinople the information for which they have
beei asked relative to communal districts. 8. In-
saitulion of a corps of mixed Gendarmerie, com-
posed of Miissulmans and Christians-a system
which already exists in several parts of the Empire.
4. Admission of non-Musselman subjects to the
milit ary schools which were recently authorised and
decreed by our august master. 5. Prohibition of
the immigration of Circassians en masse into Rou-
mania, and non-employment of regular troops ex-
cept when absolutely necessary. 6. Interdiction
against carrying arms without special authority.
7. Amnesty; for individuals implicated in recent
events at Pbilippopolis. 8. The formation of spe.
cial commissions to be dispatched to the Vilayets
of Bosnia, the Dainube, and Adrianople. 9. Sanc-
tion of the liberty of public worship; all litigation
upon religious matters to come under the juris-
diction of the patriarchates. 10. Remission of the
arrears of taxes due to Jan., 1877, in the provinces
that havesufferred. 11. Maintenance of the right
-to property already acquired by the Christians in
Bosnia and Herzegovina.
HALIFAX, N. S., March 7.-'ihe Chamber of
Commerce to-day adopted a petition to theDomin.

" Eau" of Dr. 11oltz for
IfAll DYE.

'llIniS 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. lloLrTZ's Hair Dye has not the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to the hair an un natural 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 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.

RIGOLLOT'S
MUSTARD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals of Pars, Fiekl
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 anfew
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 8pt-
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.
agency renders it an inviliable remedy fur various
disorders.
(Signted) A. BOUCHARDAT
Annuaire therapentique annee 1868, p. 204..
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality o;f Rligollot's Paper in cases
of great gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It is
in important Healing Agent. To children, weak,
and nervous persons, I strongly recommend the fof-
bwing 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.
Beware of Imitat ions.
