Hamilton, April 3, 1877.

Court of General Assize.
EASTER TERM.
The Honorable THOxAS L. WooD, Chief Justice,
and the Honorables EUGENIUS HARVEY and JAMES
H. TRIMINGuAy, Assistant Justices, presiding.
Yesterday, Monday, being the first day of the
Term, a very suitable Sermon was preached at Holy
Trinity Church in this Town, by the Rev. Mark
James, Rector of Pembroke and Devonshire Parish-
es, from the 2nd Chronicles, xix c. 6th verse.
The Court soon after assembled, and the Grand
Jury-of which Walter White Darrell, Esqr., was
chosen Foreman-was empannelled.
The CHIEF JUSTICE in charging the Grand Jury
remarked that he had but little to say, except to re-
mind them of their general duty as Grand Jurymen
which was not to try cases, as if they were an ulti-
mate tribunal before whom a satisfactory conclu-
sion could be arrived at as to the guilt or innocence
of a prisoner, but in the interests of law and order
to present a true bill if the matter disclosed on
evidence before them was such as to call for an an-
swer.
He would not stray from this simple duty of re-
minding them of the function they had to perform,
in order to remark upon matters which affected the
administration of justice. No doubt there was
much to put upon a better footing, which as he had
frequently remarked upon at length he would not
again repeat.
He was not aware that there were any cases
which required to be treated of in detail, to enable
the Jury to arrive at right conclusions as to Bills
submitted to them and as he had reason to suppose
the Calendar was a light one he trusted their la-
bours would not prove to be very onerous.
The following Indictments were laid before the
Grand Jury by S. BRowNLOW GRAY, Esqr., Attorney
General:
The Queen ag. Joseph Francis. Larceny. True
Bill. Tried and found Not Guilty.
The Queen ag. Alfred Svenlin and 4 others. Lar-
ceny and receiving Stolen Goods. True Bill.
The Court is adjourned to this morning at 10
o'clock.

STILL ANOTHER ACCIDENT BY DROWNING.-On
Friday morning last several Gentlemen from Hamilton
proceeded on an excursion in a fine sail boat, owned and
under the direction of Mr. John Peniston and M r. John
Adams. At about 3"30 p.m., the party started toward
home, they were then distant about 8 miles N.E. of Ire-
land Island. They had not proceeded far when the boat
unfortunately struck on a shoal and unshipped the rud-
der. Peniston lowered the sails, endeavoured to bring
the boat to the wind. by dropping the anchor, but failed
indoing so and lost the anchor. He then endeavoured to
manage the boat by an oar to recover the rudder and so
fir succeeded as to bring her within a short distance of
the rudder. He then jumped overboard, to regain it,
by swimming, although warned not to do so. A
sudden squall striking the boat all control of her was
lost. The unfortunate man succeeded in reaching (the
rudder, and swam with it towards the boat;
she however drifted rapidly away from him. He
was in sight for ten or fifteen minutes during
which time he appeared to be perfectly cool and
collected. After making every possible effort to save him
the boat was reluctantly headed for land, and finally suc-
ceeded in making St. Georges harbour, splitting jib
and breaking the oar. Mr. Adams nearly lost
his life in attempting to furl the jib, and would have
done so but for the timely assistance of one of the ex-
cursionists. Mr. Peniston is spoken of by those who
knew him as a very industrious a sober man. He
leaves a wife and several small children to mourn their
loss.


THE GOVERNOR AND THE REV. MR. BILKEY.

So much pains has been taken to mislead the public
as to the true interpretation of the Governor's action in
relation to Mr. B3ilkey on a recent occasion that it de-
serves a little to put people in possession of the true
bearings of the case. This we shall do, in justice not
to the Governor, who is one of those men who do their
duty manfully and fearlessly without being frightened
by the clamours of an ignorant or ill-natured outcry,
and without a thought as to what effect it may have on
their popularity, but to the people, who too often accept
the first opinion suggested without examining or con-
sidering for themselves its soundness or fairness.
When application was made, as we learn from the
correspondence, to the Governor to issue a License to
Mr. Bilkey, to marry two persons, the Governor re-
plied, "I cannot do that before I have some evidence
that Mr. Bilkoy is competent according to the Law of
Bermuda to perform the marriage ceremony."
Labour and pervert the facts as you may these few
lines embrace absolutely the whole merits of the case.
If it was illiberal and intolerant to refuse to issue a
License to a person not known to the Governor to be
legally competent to discharge the duty for which the
License was sought, the Governor was, and is, and let
us devoutly hope, will continue to be, illiberal and in-
tolerant. If it was not the columns of complaint and
censure which have been poured forth by the press
shew that the writers are either too little acquainted
with the ordinary administrative duties of the Execu-
tive to be competent, or too anxious to find fault to be
willing, to form or express a candid and intelligent
judgment on tli question at issue.
However ill-informed His Excellency's critics may
be, the Governor himself could not but know that it
was a serious matter for him to issue under his hand
and the broad se;l of the Colony an instrument which
might lead two persons of honor and respectability to
enter, on the faith of that License. into bonds which,
when all too late, they might discover to be not the bonds
of marriage at all, and which might involve painful and
even shameful consequences which no skill or art of
man could redress or remedy. Surely it needs no ar-
gument to satisfy any man of ordinary intelligence and
fairness that the Governor who could thoughtlessly
overlook the consequences of an inconsiderate act of
this nature would grossly fail in his duty. But the
Governor who, recognizing his duty, could shrink from
it for fear of a thoughtless or malicious clamour, would
be an object of contempt not only to the people but to
himself.
Wh-ther it is, or is not, true that it has not been the
official practice to require every minister to produce
evidence of his religious status before issuing such Li-
cense to him is quite immaterial. It may be atthatthere
,has been laxity, culpable laxity if you please, in this
particular. But he must be a very superficial reasoner
who argues that because Licenses have been granted
without inquiry to ministers of long-established deno-
minations, recognized and subsidized by law, and which
ministers therefore possess to a greater or less extent
a public status, therefore they ought to be granted with-
out inquiry to any person claiming to be a minister of a
denomination not known to the law, and who possesses
no public status whatever either in Bermuda, or, as far
as is known, in any other part of the world.
There is among us a Mr. Nelson claiming, we be-
lieve, and for anything we know to the contrary justly
claiming, to be a minister of a denomination possessing
some very staunch disciples in Bermuda. Whether
they are more or fewer in number than Mr. Bilkey's we
do not know. But does anyone imagine that if th-
Governor were asked to issue to this person a License
to marry it would consist with His Excellency's duty to
issue it without making any inquiry into his status P
Would the Governor be justified in putting his name,
or allowing the Public Seal to be put, to such an instru-
ment P Let it be remembered that the Governor's
License cannot make that marriage which is merely
cohabitation nor legitimatise the offspring of illicit uni-
ons. But it may and can undoubtedly entrap innocent
and pure-minded people into such illicit connexions
and thus into irreparable distress.
Of course an opportunity of attacking the Executive
on the score of religious intolerance is altogether too
good a thing to be lost. Faultfinding is as sweet, and
generally as blind, as revenge.
Is it asking too much to require that those who as-
sume the functions of public instructors before ventur-
ing to condemn or censure persons entrusted with the
responsible discharge of important public duties, should
acquaint themselves, or at least possess some ordinary
acquaintance with the principles which do and ought to
actuate the persons censured ?
The simple truth is that the Governor in this case
performed a plain duty, which he could not have neg-
lected without exposing himself to a well-founded
charge of official negligence, and others to possible
misery ; and that it is for performing what was a plain
duty that he has been attacked as illiberal and intoler-
ant.
It is for those who deny this to shew that it was the
Governor's duty to issue a License to marry to any
person claiming to be a Minister of a known Christian
Sect or Denomination in the United Kingdom without
:requiring any evidence whatever that he is what he
claims to be.

It is with deep regret we announce to-day the death
of Mr. Nathaniel H. Loomis. of the firm of E. P. &
N. H. Loomis Produce Commission Merchants of the
City of New York, which sad event took place at his
residence, Brooklyn, on the morning of the 16th ultimo,
by that dreadful disease Hydrophobia, the melancholy
particulars of which will be found in another column.
The Brothers (Loomis') were well known in Bermuda
and very generally respected, being most reliable busi-
ness men. They at one time resided here, having
rented and planted an extensive lot of land in South-
ampton Parish, but not succeeding as well as they an-
ticipated and finding it would be more to their advan-
tage to purchase produce than to raise it them-
selves, they abandoned the farm and have ever since
annually visited Bermuda to supply their establishment
in New York with our early produce. Mr. Loomis was
preparing for his usual visit to Bermuda when death,
under the most painful circumstances, closed his earthly
career. To those" says the Tolland County Journal
"who know his-Mr. Loomis'-life and witnessed his
death no other evidence and no strong er proof could be


given of the reality of the faith he cherished. It was
more than volumes of argument for the truth of reli-
gion."
OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE.---The 34th Boat Race
between Oxford and Cambridge took place on the
Thames, on the morning of the 24th ultimo, and
resulted in a dead heat. "As a race, however,"
says the Herald's correspondent, "it must long en,
dure in the memory of every witness as one of the
most magnificent exhibitions of physical endurance
which rowing has ever developed. For the four
miles and two furlongs never for a moment were
the boats free from each other." Time, 24 min. 10
sec. The men were much exhausted. Oxford had
a slight lead, but her bow oar became crippled.

damage in this village is fearful. The railroad
freight house and all the cars were washed away.
The passenger depot is all right. The Stafford Na.
tional Bank, the Congregational Church, and about
fifteen other buildings have been washed away.
The damage to the railroad track is heavy.
Later.-The flood came upon the village sudden-
ly, and its effects have been very disastrous. Three
miles of the railroad have been washed away. Two
Howe truss bridges between Stafford and Tolland
are also washed away. The flood has caused trou-
ble all along the line
It is stated that telegraphic warnings have been
sent to Norwich and vicinity, and that the flood is
going in that direction.
The reservoir belonged to the Reservoir Company,
composed of owners of mills on the stream below.
The dam was raised six feet during the past winter,
and the-storm last'night filled it for the first time.

HYDROPHOBIA.

ANOTHER VICTIM TO THE DISEASE.
Nathaniel H. Loomis, of the firm of E. P. & N.
H. Loomis, produce commission merchants, doing
business in New York City, died this morning at
3,80 o'clock, at his residence, 169 Madison street,
Brooklyn, of hydrophobia. About six weeks ago
Mr. Loomis was bitten by a little dog. The dog
was not of the spitz breed, and it is not definitely
known to what breed he belonged. The animal
was lying down near the window, and refused to
move when the servant attempted to close the shut-
ters. He seemed irritable and snapped at the ser-
vant in such a manner that she called her mistress.
Mr. Loomis came into the room at the moment,
and thinking that the animal was merely tired,
stooped down to lift him up. The dog turned at
once and bit him through the hand, between the
thumb and forefinger. Shortly afterward the dog
displayed unmistaken symptoms of being afflicted
with the rabies, and a policeman was sent for who
killed him within an hour after the biting.
Mr. Loomie at once started for his physician, Dr.
Terry, of Washington avenue, very properly al-
lowing the wound to bleed as much as possible on
the way, but it is supposed that long before he
reached the doctor's house the poison of the bite
had extended through his entire system.
The wound was cauterized atthe time, however,
and no inconvenience was felt from it till Tuesday
morning of the present week.
It was Mr. Loomis' intention to sail for Bermuda
on Wednesday to remain several months, and his
baggage had goneto the vessel, when, feeling unwell
during the day of Tuesday, he returned home and
sent for the doctor. Dr. Terry was unwell himself
and Dr. Elmendorf, of Greene avenue, was called in.
Mr. Loomis was not much alarmed about him-


self, attributing his inability to swallow water, or
indeed any liquid to a bad cold and slight bronchial
affection. He, however, narrated the incident of
the bite to Dr. Elmendorf and was evidently labor-
ing under a nervous disease of some sort.
The Doctor discouraged the idea of hydrophobia
and succeeded partially in getting the patient to
swallow a few drops of water. After prescribing
anodyne in the form of pills the Doctor left him till
morning. Wednesday morning he was better and
continued to improve steadily till about five o'clock
yesterday afternoon, when he grew much worse,
was unable to swallow anything whatever and was
in a very high state of nervous excitement.
The doctor found him in a constant endeavor to
clear his throat, coughing constantly and occasional-
ly relapsing into a kindpf convulsive spasm. Fre-
quent injections of morphine under the skin some-
what reduced the nervous excitement, but did not
seem able to counteract the disease. Finally after
ending a night of dreadful suffering and agony the
wretched man expired as above explained.
Dr. Elmendorf believes the case to have been a
genuine one of hydrophobia, which was delayed
rather longer than usual, but finally brought on by
a severe cold accompanied by slight fever.
Mr. Loomis was a man about 85 years of age, and
leaves a family. He was a member and one of the
deacons of Dr. Duryea's church..-Brooklyn Eagle,
March 16.


THE VICTORIA RAILWAY.-A Victoria dispatch
says the Government, in reply to Lord Carnarvon's
last railway dispatch, declines to consider the ques-
tion of compensation, but concedes another year's
delay in the commencement of the construction of
the railway.
HALIFAX, March 27.-The estimates, as brought
down by the Nova Scotia Legislature to-day exhi-
bit considerable retrenchment in the various de-
partments. The Government estimated the revenue
at $653,150, and expenditures at $574,150, leaving
a balance to the credit of the Province of $79,000


EUROPE.

The Times to-day, (March 28) in a leading article
discussing the British revenue returns, states, "The
total amount received up to Saturday was 76,-
799,576. The total for the year which Sir Stafford
Nortbcote, Chancellor of the Exchequer, anticipated
in the budget was 78,412,000. It follows that
1,612,000 must be received in the current week to
make up the total reckoned upon. This seems im-
possible. It is an almost inevitable conclusion that
the revenue will, for the first time in many years,
fall below the budget estimates. This is an un-
pleasant prospect, and is all the more unpleasant
because Sir Stafford Northcote, in the last budget,
left the narrowest margin between income and ex-
penditure, and supplementary votes have so increas-
ed the expenditure that the estimates themselves
show a threatened deficit. The expenditure for the
next year will probably not be less than for this
year, and we do not at present see grounds for an-
ticipating a new development of elasticity in re-
venue.

LATEST FOREIGN NEWS.-3-45 A.M 29TH.
THE TURKISH CONFLICT.
Negotiations to be Continued-The Servians and Tur-
kish Irregulars Fighting.
LONDON, Thursday, March 29, 1877.-The Post
publishes the following in official form : We are
glad to say the prospects of a pacific solution are at
least favorable to this degree that negotiations are
to be continued. We may thus gather that the
fresh suggestions placed before the Cabinet are
deemed worthy of consideration, and that a way is
still thought to be open to a satisfactory arrangement
of all differences."
The Belgrade correspondent of The Times says :
SIt is reported that an encounter has occurred be-
tween the Bashi-Bazouks and Servians near Raschka
in which several of the latter were killed. The
Servian Government professes to have news of
some slight disturbances caused by cattle stealing
on the part of the Bashi-Bazouks. The Porte has
ordered its troops to evacuate the islands of the
Drina and some positions opposite Novi-Bazar
and Sienitza. This will complete the evacuation
of disputed territory."
The Times's Vienna dispatch says : All that has
transpired leads to the supposition that Gen. Igna-
tieff, far from despairing of a solution, has set to
work with fresh ardor, and has left Vienna with
the hope of having found the lost thread of nego-
tiations, whi h is to be followed up in Berlin and
later St. Petersburg. This, however, would not
seem to exclude the continuance of direct negotiat-
ions between London and St. Petersburg."
Russia said to be Peaceful.-The Daily Telegraph's
Vienna telegram reports that Russia has yielded in
consequence of the firmness which Count Andrassy
has displayed. Austria is now, for the first time,
interesting herself to bring about peace between the
Porte and Montenegro. Prince Bismarck only
signs the protocol on condition that it is first ac-
cepted by Austria. Austria's refusal to give a
promise of neutrality in case of an outbreak of hos-
tilities has brought about the prospect of a peace-
ful issue.
LONDON, Wednesday, March 28.-The Vienna
correspondent of The Daily Telegragh in a dispatch
to that journal says:-"All measures are being
taken here to mobilize, in case of need, 220,000 men
on the frontier in a fortnight, to be followed by
another 220,000 in a fortnight afterward. The
military situation is in every respect satisfactory.
How far these facts will influence Russia's decision
it is impossible to say, but I am unable to state that
General Ignatieff has been greatly impressed by the
decided attitude of the Government, supported by
such powerful means of action.
The 'House of Commons adjourned on the 27th
March to Thursday next.

The Report of the Arctic Survey Committee, ex-
tracts from which will be found in another column,
distinctly condemns the action taken by Sir George
Nares in with-holding the lime-juice ration from
the sledging parties. It is stated that Sir George
Nares did not properly provision those parties, and
that he had no sufficient reason for departing from
the medical instructions drawn up by Sir Alexan-
der Armstrong.-Army and Navy Gazette, March 10.

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE,


LETTER FROM EASTERN EUROPE.

TRIESTE, EN EOUTE FrOTM VENICE.
We left Venice by full moon-a full moon in a
cloudless sky, which Douglas Jerrold once compar-
ed to a shilling on a slate. From our hotel on the
Grand Canal we stepped into the gondola which
waited to convey us to the steamer. It was already
midnight, and the revelry of Venice was hushed in
sleep ; ours was the only boat on the black waters-
"A dusky barge
Dark as a funeral scarf from stem to stern."
It was all so silent, so mysteriously unreal, that it
seemed very like assisting at one's own funeral in
a dream, with the pagan accessories of old Charon
and the Styx. There was not even a breath of
wind to rouse one up with the flavor of life and
motion. We glided past the enchanted city, with
its starlike lamps, and sculptured stones, and I had
the sensation that it would fade away from my
sight like a dissolving view. As a matter of fact I
believe it is sinking into the sea at the rate of three
or four inches in a century.
A voyage of seven hours conveyed us to Trieste.
The morning was fine, as we steamed into the
crowded harbor, but too hazy for distant views, and
one almost wished for a blast of the terrible Bora
to take away the curtain of mist.
Commercially speaking Trieste has superseded
Venice, though it is said the latter is picking up a
little since it has been Italian again. From being
a place of four thousand inhabitants in the last
century, it rose through the fostering care of Maria
Theresa to a port of first class importance, and now
numbers nearly seventy thousand, with export and
import trade of something like ten millions ster-
ling.
What Hamburg is to the North, Trieste is to
South Germany, or rather to the provinces of Aus-
tria. But here the comparison ends, for in out-
ward aspect one is reminded at every moment of the
warm South. It is true there is the same forest of
masts, and the same impediments of merchandise t
in the busy streets, but the crowd itself is different;
and here the background of the picture is a steep
hillside covered with vines, fig trees, chestnuts, and
olives, while the arid foreshore is lapped by the
blue Adriatic.
The market is a sight worth seeing-such piles
of bright-colored fruits and vegetables, and pictur-
esque peasant women with their white linen head-
gear floating gracefully on their shoulders. There
are many handsome faces to be met with-types of
beauty quite different from Western Europe-olive
complexioned, with dark almond shaped eyes; and
a step of erect bearing and yet supple grace un-
known to our peasantry. And what a babel of
tongues. Besides the floating population, which
comes and goes to the uttermost ends of the earth,
there are settled here the representatives of many
races. The merchants are mostly foreigners, be-
longing to all nations, who trade with ships; added
to which there is a remarkable diversity of tongue
and race amongst the natives themselves. The
middle class are mostly Italian-speaking, the lang-
uage of the theatres and courts of justice; at the
same time the Austrian officials are pugnaciously
German in tongue. Both these languages are un-
intelligible to the lower classes of people, who are
Wends, and speak a Sclavonic dialect.
Here is just an example of Austria's difficulties.
I believe that no less than nine languages are
spoken in her army, and all the fierce antagonism
of race, which this diversity represents, has to be
conciliated by her luckless Government. One can-
not help being sorry for her now, though the time I
has been when she has fostered the bitter hatred of
race against race, of Sclav against Hungarian, for
her own selfish ends. In every part of the empire
you are confronted with the fact that Austria is
not made up of Austrians, but an unmixed mixture
of peoples, each with their own tongue, their own
creed, their own political aspirations, and worse
than all, each with their own grievance.
With, the Eastern question clamouring at her
very doors, Austria stands with feet entangled,
neither daring to give nor to hold her hand lest
her own integral balance should be upset thereby.
One thing is certain, five millions and a half of
Magyars hate Russia to a man. .
No sooner had we stepped on shore at Trieste
than we were made conscious of our nearness to
the disturbed districts. We stood aside to let pass
a long line of some three or four hundred wretched
beings, men and women, old and young, who were
being marshalled by the military to some barracks
the other side of the town. They were fugitive
Bulgarians, we were told, who had sought shelter
on Austrian territory. They were very miserable-
looking-half-clad, poverty stricken; abject in their
poverty-men without any fighting material in
them, as a people may well become after four hun-
dred years of Turkish misrule. These unhappy fu-
gitives have to be supported by Austria-a heavy
tax on her already heavily taxed finances, for they
number in thousands, and "The cry is still they
come!"
The dismal cavalcade passed on, and the busy
traffic of the streets closed in on their track; buy-
ing and selling must go on with its unceasing rou-
tine, though villages are burning over the frontier,
and the earth there is red with the blood of Turk-
ish victims.
Following the head of one of the principal thor- I
oughfares, we soon found ourselves in the handsomest
quarter of the town. Trieste is essentially a modern
city, with the usual fine public buildings, the most
noteworthy being the Tergesteum, built by the
architect Mollari; it contains assembly rooms, a
bazaar, and casino. The equipages in the streets,
and the shop windows, gave an idea of wealth and


prosperity; but there was nothing in the town itself
to make one remember it as a place apart. There
is a uniform monotony about prosperous places as
well as people.
* The curve of the bay is perfect, but unfortunately
for us, the higher mountains and the distant head-
lands were invisible, owing to the persistent veil
of sunny mist.
Our principal reason for stopping at Trieste was
to visit Miramar, the old home of the unfortunate
Maximilian, sometime Emperor of Mexico. An
hour's drive along the shore to westward brings
you to the Castle-a battlemented, structure in the
orman style. It is built of white limestone from
Istria; the dazzling whiteness contrasted with the i
deep blue of the water, and the dark green subtrop-
ical foliage of the garden forms a combination of
colouring simply perfect. The name is Spanish,
meaning "Behold the sea," and truly it is a spot
from whence to gaze and gaze again upon that
expance of waters, whose cliffs and shores are land-
glorious marks of history.
It is hardly possible to describe the fairy-like
beauty of the gardens, extending in the rear of the
Castle, embracing a small bay within their limits,
and forming an amphitheatre of greenery above and
beyond. The place is kept up by the Emperor of
Austria at great expense, for in this arid climate,
it requires immense care to preserve the rare trees
and plants which have been brought together to
form this little paradise. But, alas, for these flowers
of Eden-
The trail of the serpent is over them all."
The story of the Archduke Maximilian and his wife
Charlotte, daughter of the King of the Belgians, is
the very saddest chapter in the history of the cent-
ury. The one, with all his hopes and aspirations
crushed,fella martyr to the jealousy of rivalfactions;
while the other, the partner of his love and ambition,
lives on, the victim of melancholy and incurable
madness.
Looking around on all the wealth of beauty creat-
ed by the taste of this most unfortunate Royal
couple, it was impossible io banish a sense of gloom


-even from the bright and sunny landscape, radiant
though it was with the warmth and glory of a
southern sky.
We approached the Castle, and found the porch
occupied by a flock of pigeons whose tameness
would have been enough to shock Robinson Crusoe
with a sense of utter solitude. They were the only
living things we had yet seen in these enchanted
gardens; for the gates stand open, all may enter
free, and there is not even a gratuity-seeking guide
or gardener to torment you with his presence.
The birds in possession hardly moved aside to let
us ring the bell, but we soon obtained entrance to
the interior of the Castle.
You feel at once that this is no ordinary royal re-
sidence. Every article of use or ornament is stamp-
ed with the individual taste of the late owner.
There is an artistic and personal feeling pervading
the whole, which is not to be catalogued by the
mere appraiser of valuable effects.
The ex-Emperor's own room was specially inter-
esting, as well as curious, for it is built exactly like
the cabin the ship he first commanded, and is filled
with souvenirs of his life and travels. Photographs
of his friends, little scraps of prints and sketches,
odds and ends, which one feels at a glance have each
their history.
The library is a delightful room, with a beautiful
view, which Lord Bacon said no library ought to
have. However, there are books rich and rare
enough to keep one's attention within the four
walls. Besides the usual classics in all languages,
I noticed several shelves of modern English books-
most travels and biographies-and they had the
comfortable, shabby look of having been read, per-
haps, as travelling companions. On a place on one
of the walls of the room are traced the words
"Memento Verona," which I found alluded to
Austria's disaster at the battle of Solferino, which
had caused the Archduke intense pain. The words
were placed to remind him in present trouble that
he had been still more unhappy. Alas, he had yet
to drain the cup of sorrow to the dregs of still
greater bitterness!
The other apartments are very handsome, indeed,
some of the staterooms are magnificent. I believe
they were finished after the Archduke left for Mex-
ico, and he never really saw them in their comple-
ted state. The beautiful staircase, however, had
evidently the benefit of his exclusive taste; and is
arranged to command at one part a splendid view
of the town and bay of Trieste, with the distant
headlands towards Pola.
When looking at this fair scene, and the goodly
house which he had built himself, it is difficult to
imagine what could have induced the Archduke to
leave it all for a wretched place like Mexico-to
govern a "played out race," as the Americans call
the Mexicans. What could have tempted him to
leave Europe, with all its refined and intellectual
attractions, for scenes and associations so dissimilar ?
Some explanation may be found in the fact, that
pleasant as it looked, the Archduke's position was
not a bed of roses. He somewhat resembled his an-
cestor, Joseph II., in his reforming propensities ;
but his views did not find favour, and he was stig-
matised by the ruling party as a dangerous man.
He wanted to reform the Austrian navy, but the
army-which was omnipotent-was against it; and
shewed its jealousy in unmistakable opposition.
Simply from the fact of holding Liberal opinions,
the Archduke came to be looked upon as the leader
of that party throughout the Empire. The Hunga-
rians wanted to have him as their Palatine; but
from all such congenial spheres of action he was
obliged to retire-and no doubt the position was
peculiarly galling. Then, again, there was female
influence in the case, as there always is, and always
will be. Cherchez moi la femme," said the Eastern
monarch, when the Canal burst its banks. In this
instance it was the wife of the Archduke who was
believed to be at the bottom of the mischief. It is
said that she was ambitious of an Imperial title ;
she wished to take her place in the first rank. Poor
thing, one will not talk of it now, nor balance the
share of blame which rests mainly between Napo-
leon and herself. It is all over now, and remains a
tale to be told by twilight "of the sad death of
kings."
However, Maximilian has not died in vain, for
since his execution his brother, the Emperor of
Austria, can hardly be induced to sign a death war-
rant. Capital punishment has become of rare oc-
currence in Austria. The dying words of the un-
fortunate Maximilian were, Let my blood be the
last shed as an offering for my country." Those
who have studied the blood-stained annals of 1849,
when Hungary was lying mangled and prostrate
beneath the feet of Austria and her ally, Russia,
will know how great a change is wrought when a
Hapsburg recognizes the attribute of mercy amongst
his kingly privileges.

Highest Centennial Award.
[l IE Judges in the report said: "It seems
undisputed that WEBER has distanced all
competition, and must be to-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 promptly to its re-
quirements, together with excellence of work-
manship.

,Eau" of Dr. l oltz for
HAIR DYE.
' 1l1IS WATER ie of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fe nsive.
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. l!OLTZ's Hlair Dye 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, Du. 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.
