THE GOVERNOR AND MR. BILKEY.
If the question raised by the Colonist had been whe-
ther the Governor was wrong when he issued Marriage
Licenses to Mr. Morris, without inquiry into his status,
the long article in last week's Colonist might be to a
considerable extent apposite, and in some degree im-
portant, to the inquiry. But no such question has been
raised, and the article in fact merely seeks to divert at-
tention from the question which really and alone is in-
volved in the charge against the Governor respecting
Mr. Bilkey. We decline to discuss the question whe-
ther it was right to issue Licenses to Mr. Morris. In-
deed the Colonist itself has disposed of that question
in showing that it required an Act of the Legislature
to give validity to those Licenses ; and, if it be true that
the Attorney General made in the House of Assembly
the strong remark concerning the marriages celebrated
under those Licenses which the article quotes, surely it
would have been, if not an unpardonable, at least a very
grave error indeed to repeat the mistake in the case of
Mr. Bilkey.
Any one who will take the pains to read last week's
Colonist will find that the whole article turns on what
was done in other cases.
The case of Mr. Morris we need not revert to. The
omnipotence of the Legislature was invoked to cover
that.
The case of the Weslayan, Presbyterian and Roman
Catholic Ministers or Priests is broadly distinguished
from that of Mr. Bilkey and Mr. Morris by their De-
nominations being legally recognized and subsidized.
It is totally immaterial to this question whether even in
their cases the official practice ought to be made more
stringent than it seems to be. We repeat that the ar-
gument that because the Executive has officially recog-
nized these Ministers he should officially recognize all
persons claiming to be Ministers is not worth refuting.
It stands self-condemned and it is useless to waste
words on it.
The assertion that the Free Church of England is as
well known in England as the Established Church is
simply untrue. But whether true or false it is evident
that without inquiry the Governor could have no know-
ledge whether Mr. Bilkey legitimately claimed to be an
ordained Minister of that, or any other, denomination.
The Colonist considers the comparison between Mr.
Bilkey and Mr. Nelson to be insulting to the former.
We deem it no more insulting than that between Mr.
Bilkey and Mr. Morris, instituted by the Colonist. It
is quite as harmless to compare the cases of the two
former as those of the two latter; and no comparison
except a comparison of cases was instituted.
In our former article we said that those who accused
the Governor of illiberality towards Mr. Bilkey, were
bound to shew that it was the Governor's duty to issue
a marriage License to anyand every person claiming to
be a regular Minister of a known religious sect in the
United Kingdom, without any evidence that such per-
son was what he claimed to be.
That is the real and the only question at issue, and
that question the Colonist has industriously evaded.
Any one may read through its whole two columns of
printed matter without finding any attempt to answer
it. It might be answered, if it suited the Colonist's
case to answer it, in half a dozen lines. It would cer-
tainly not require two columns for the answer. Does
that paper or does it not, maintain that such is the
Governor's duty P If it does not why does it not man-
fully retract its unfounded charge P If it does why not
say so plainly P
To say that if the Governor was right in the one
case he was wrong in the other, is no answer. Let that
be granted. Does it prove that he was wrong in Mr.
Bilkey's case P
We apprehend that the Colonist will continue to
leave this question unanswered; but it does not require
assistance from that quarter for any unprejudiced per-
son of ordinary intelligence to answer it for himself.
A direct and candid reply must entirely acquit the
Governor of any intolerance; and while the mere dis-
charge of so plain a duty can certainly not redound (to
use the language of the Colonist) to His Excellency's
glory it as certainly affords no ground for the attack
which has been made on him.

THE AFTERNOON RECEPTION" by the Teachers of
St. John's Sunday School took place according to pre-
',ious notice, in this Town, on the afternoon of Tuesday
last, under the auspices of General and Mrs. Lefroy,
and its success far surpassed the utmost anticipations
of its movers. The articles offered were of the
greatest variety, and much taste and ingenuity was
displayed in their preparation. The attendance was
large throughout the evening, notwithstanding that
other engagements of a more fascinating kind to some,
drew many away. Had the "Reception" been held in
a more commodious room, doubtless a larger amount
of money would have been realized; as it was 80
was received.
Much credit is due the Managers as well as the
young Ladies who attended at the Rustic Bowers."

CRUISING RACE R. B. Y. CLUB.
The first of the recently organized Cruising
Races, instituted by the R. B. Y. Club, took place
on Friday last. The course was from a Stake Boat
moored in the harbour about two hundred yards
from the Paget shore, just abreast of the residence
of the Hon. W. H. Gosling, through the head of
the Lane, round both chequered buoys of Staggs'
Channel and Magazine Island on Port Side, round
Tucker's and Morgan's Islands, on Port side to
Pearl Islaid rounding it on the Starboard Side
through head of the Lane to Stake Boat.
The number of boats entered, twelve in all, shew-
ed that the efforts of the Sailing Committee of the
R. B. Y.' Club to revive the interest in yachting
have, been ably seconded by the members of the
Club.
The wind being from the North West made the
course selected an excellent one for the small boats
and the result shewed that they made the best of
their chance. The time allowance at first fixed was
three times the Club allowance for an ordinary
Bermuda race, twice to windward and once to lee-
ward, but it was subsequently reduced by half; and
the result clearly proved that even that is too much
for the style of course selected.


AW A CONCERT, for the Relief of the sufferers
by the late disasters at sea--THIS EVENING, at
the Mechanics' Hall. For advertisement see first
page.

JARLEY'S WAX WORKS.
This splendid collection of Works of Art was on
exhibition, we regret to see it announced for the last
time, at Clarence Hill on Thursday evening, be-
fore a favoured crowd of spectators.
Since it had been last exhibited a few changes
had been made. Sir Garnet Wolseley and King
Coffee had been withdrawn, probably from their
machinery being out of order; and Gurth and
Wamba had been added to the chamber of fiction,
though their accurate historical properties might
fairly have entitled them to historic rank.
The various groups were Mary Queen of Scots
under the axe of the executioner, Sir George Nares
making ineffectual efforts to reach the North Pole,
personified by the presiding genius of that pleasant
neighbourhood, Richard the lionhearted, John the
cravenhearted, and Governor Alured Popple with
Dame Popple his wife.
The heroes and heroines of Fiction were reminis-
cences of some of the finest works of imagination
ever created by the pen of man.
The Lady Rowena was seen receiving a beautiful
casket from the kneeling Jewess, Rebecca, and
Gurth, the swineherd, and Wamba, the jester, com-
pleted a very happy illustration from the immortal
pages of Ivanhoe.
The not less immortal Pickwick, with his trusty
Sam Weller, and his faithful sporting friend Winkle,
formed the next group, and this part of the collec-
tion was completed by a very cleverly costumed
figure of a Maid of Honor of the Court of the good
Queen Anne and a charming little Red Riding
Hood, the impersonation, as the mythologists would
tell us, of the bright day, destined to be swollowed
up by the insatiable night-the Wolf, which how-
ever did not put in an appearance.
Far be it from us to attempt to weigh out the
mede of praise earned by each character for the illus-
trious Mr. Jarley to whose genius they all owed
their existence.
The fair and queenly Mary, the sweet genius of
the North which many a gallant seaman might well
spend all his strength and energy in striving to at-
tain, the graceful and magnificent Rowena, the
lovely Jewess at her feet, the fair and stately dame
of the Court of Queen Anne and the charming
young dame or damsel of the last century were all
grouped, posed and costumed with an elegance and
fidelity which struck all beholders with admiration
and delight, and which were truly surprising con-
sidering the limited resources of our theatrical
costumiers.
Nor can less be said of that portion of the char-
acters which represented the heroes of history and
romance.
The grim and ghostly executioner, the gallant
Nares, brave in his efforts to conquer unconquerable
difficulties and toils, braver still in his readiness to
accept the censure which even the stout hearted
might quail under, the magnificent breadth and
height of the king with the lion heart, though no
monarch of the forest ever had so stout a heart
whatever his queen may have had, the craven and
cruel monarch whose name is inseparably
linked with the greatest monument of our
historic liberties and the basest surrender of our
national freedom, the Governor whose official com-
munications with the commons of Bermuda bore a
closer resemblance to the immortal lectures of Mrs.
Caudle than any political protocols before or since
his day, the sporting Mr. Winkle and the dapper
and ready witted Sam Weller were all there true to
the life and spirit, the very reproductions in wax
of the characters so familiar to us all. But what
shall we say of th* character which neither history
nor fiction ever rivalled.-the inimitable and in-
comparable Pickwick ? It was perfect.
The self control and absolute impressiveness of the
figures, some of them, especially of the female models,
under severe and protracted strain of muscle, was
something marvellous to behold. It may seem to
the reader that there is nothing extraordinary in
wax being impassive, but marble itself could hardly
have suppressed a smile under the provocative ad-
ministered by George, the indefatigable showman,
and the irresistible Mrs. Jarley, or a sigh or move-
ment under the long continued muscular effort. The
beautiful Queen of Scots, Rowena, Rebecca, King
John, Pickwick, indeed one and all of Mrs. Jarley's
statoos" were as solid and immovable as Cleopa-
tra's Needle itself, except when their mechanism
was set in motion, and then they moved with the
regulated precision of watch work.
But we cannot go on. The task is too heavy for
us. No pen but that of Scott or Dickens, no tongue
but that of Mrs. Jarley herself, could do justice to
the beauty, variety and fidelity of the figures and
costumes of these exquisite Wax Models,
We must however say a word about the designer
of this fine collection who was present to watch,
with just pride, the brilliant results of his happy in-
spiration. To him primarily the hundreds who
have gazed with delight on his fine gallery of fig.-
ures owe the pleasure it has afforded them.
But no creative genius could have worked out
such a success, even with the fine and excellent ma-
terials that presented themselves, without the as-
sistance of the wonderful Mrs. Jarley.
The costume of the lamented Jarley's bereaved
and enterprising widow was worthy, and more than
worthy, of Madame Elise herself; but her graceful
robes, her sweet little cap, and, above all, her "love
of a bonnet," although they were the envy of all the
girls in the room, would have been nothing better
than triumphs of the milliner's art, without that

THEATRE ROYAL, PROSPECT CAMP.
The 32nd Company R. E. Amateur Dramatic
Club made their first appearance in- the above Thea-
tre on Friday evening last, when was produced the
pleasing little Drama; by C. H. Hazlewood, Esqr.,
entitled The Harvest Storm," followed by a very
delightful Vocal Concert, and concluding with a
Farce, that.kept the audience in one continual roar
of laughter, entitled "The Turkish Bath." The
Performance was repeated on Saturday and Mon-
day, but concluded with the Screaming Farce en.
titled "A Shilling Day at the Great Exhibition,"
and was to have come off again this evening, but,
as will be seen in another column, has been post-
poned in consequence of the Concert announced to
take place in the Mechanics' Institute, Hamilton,
for the relief of the sufferers by the recent disasters
at sea.
We must congratulate this Club on the success
which has attended this, their first appearance, and
on the very liberal patronage they received.
We hope to be able to give a more lengthened
account in our next issue.

Parliament for their vested interest to the soil, in
which the Rayabs claim a share. The Mohamme-
dan Bays have drawn up a petition explaining
their case, for presentation by the Mohammedan
members for Bosnia.
The Times says: our Belgrade correspondent te-
legraphs that a Russian officer of rank. who has
arrivedfrom Kisebhineff. says the army on the Pruth
is in fne condition, fully equipped, ready for ac-
tiono and numbers 400.000 men.
CONSTANTINOPLE, April 3.-The Charges d'Af-
Talre'sof the great powers will communicate the
protocol to the Porte at the end of the week, and at
'the same time urge it to come to an understanding
with Russia for disarmament Another Cabinet
Council was held. to-day.
Peace has not yet been concluded between Abys.
plnia and Egypt, but probably will be, because the
King of Shoa has captured Gonds, and the Abys-
sinian army has in consequence been withdrawn
froin the Egyptian frontier. The projected treaty
will cede no territory to Abyssinia but will provide
for a red option of the Egyptian export duties.
LoNDON, April 4.-The Pall Mall Gazette publish-
es a Sheffield dispatch which says a telegram from
America states that an English firm has successful-
ly tendered for over twenty thousand tons of iron,
In face of the competition of all the American man-
ufacturers and despite the heavy import duties.
Prince :BIs.MARCK is evidently in earnest, this
time, in his withdrawal from public affairs It is
a concession that he consents to regard his resigna-
tion as temporary. But if all goes well, his leave of
absencewwill not be for a year, but for the remainder
of his life. Various conjectures are made to ac-
count for this step.. But there need be no mystery
about the question, so far as distant observers are
able to see the matter. It is natural for those who
s* tudy diplomacy as the art of concealment to search
a (r Occult explanations. It is well known that Bis.
m --ABOut S health hias long been infirm, and that he
is great'sufferer,. Besides this, he has been sur-
rounded by intrigues and jealousies, the natural re-
4utt:ef the consolidation of the German Empire.
No statesman of modern times has been obliged to
confront more formidable difficulties than those
which suiround BISMAROK. The great man retires,
and-the various offices whichhe heeld-Chancellor
of the Empire, President of the Council of Minis-
ters, Prussian Minister of Foreign affairs, Minister
for the Duchy of Lunenburg, &c., will be divided
among several officials. It is said that he desires
to leave to his successor the responsibility of con-
ducting the German Empire through the war, if
Russia and Turkey should yet come to blows.-.

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


JFrom the Forest and Stream, (New York,) March 2li.
GAME PROTECTION.
THE EARLIEST AMERICAN FISHERY
LAWS.
Through the kindness of His Excellency, Gen.
Lefroy, Governor of the Islands of Bermuda, our
correspondent, Prof. G. Brown Goode, of the
Smithsonian Institution at Washington, who is now
sojourning on the Islands, has been enabled to send
us for publication copies of two of the laws enacted
at the General Assizes of these islands during the
seventeenth century. We believe them to ante-
date by many years any similar laws passed by
any of the American Colonies. Their antiquity, as
well as the careful forethought of their proposers,
entitles them to the attention of those who are in-
terested in the subject of protective legislation.
The earliest was passed in 1627, two hundred and
fifty years ago, fifteen years after the colonization
of the Bermudas and about nine years after the es-
tablishment of the General Assizes. It aims at the
protection of a small fish of the herring family, the
pilchard (Harengula macrophthalma), to this day
abundant in Bermudean waters. "Fry" is the
name now applied to small fish, especially to the
species of Atherina and Engraulis common in the
harbors:
AN ACT AGAINST THE DRAWING OF PILCHARDS AND
FFRYE TO MAKE OYLE.
Whereas it hath bene and still is a vsuall Cus-
tome of the Inhabitants of these Islands to hale
and drawe pilchards in seuerall bayes and places
where they doe frequent, more for the benefit of
the oyle than present vse of fishing, to the general
losse of the same Inhabitants, not only by reason of
the destroying of very much frye but also to the
great losse and priudice of the said Inhabitants by
chasing away other great fishe from the share,
wch liue vpon the said frye. And further doth
hereby cause the said Pilchards and other small fish
to be so shie that there is great scarcity of Bayte for
necessary fishing, wch being considered by this
worthy and graue assemble. It is enacted by the
power and authority of the same That from hence-
forth noe manner of pson whatsoeuer do hale or
drawe any pilchards or other frye or small fishe
(vnless for baite or food) out of any the bayes or
other places belonging to these Islands as afore-
said And the rather for that it is a great relief
being taken only for baite to bring in sea fishe and
otherwise a great losse, especially in tyme of scar-
ceitye of corne And it is further enacted by the
power and authority aforesaid, that noe man of
what quality so euer shall hale or drawe in any
bay or about any Island wth any long netts any
manner of breames, to the distruccon and fraying
(sic) of the great fish from share, but only wth
netts of Tenn fathom long at the most in forfeiture
of the said netts soe vsed to be should, and converted
to genrall vses of the plantacon
Acts of Assembly, 1627.
At a later period the length of fry nets was res-
tricted, I am told by General Lefroy, to two fathoms.
It would seems as if this measure must have almost
put an end to the capture of small fish.
The other law, fifty years later, has for its appa-
rent object the protection of the porgies (probably
Sparus calamus and Sparus orbitarius) during the
spawning season.
EXTRACT FROM THE RECORDS OF THE ASSIZES HELD AT
ST. GEORGES, DECEMBER, 1676. (vii., p. 6).
"Upon the presentment of the Grand Enquest
presenting the euill practise of seuerall Inhabitants
of these Islands, who at the season of ye year
when the white bone Porgayes sculls they ketch
them through lucre of gained, and kill them to dry
for sayle to the priudice of ye whole Island, Ordered
thereupon That when the white bone Porgayes
sculls or are found in or about the eastermost parts
of these Islands in the month of Aprill and May
yearly and every year that all manner of pson or
psons fforbeare ketching or killing of any white
bone Porgayes in the same time aforementioned
more then is for their families use vpon ye fforfeit-
ure of five shillings for euery Porgaye so ketcht,
or kild to dry, the Informer to haue one moiety and
ye other moiety to be for Publique uses, ye same
to be published in ye Governor's proclamation."
Prof. Goode says that he is not aware that any
laws for the regulation of the fisheries are now in
force in the colony of Bermuda.

THE RUSSIAN FORCES.
The Politische Correspondenz is in a position to
give, on the strength of authentic data which it has
received from competent quarters, the following, as
it thinks, correct statement of the military forces
which Russia has ready for war against Turkey:-
The mobilised Russian armies consist at this mo-
ment of 20 infantry divisions out of 48, three brig-
ades of riflemen out of eight, nine divisions of cav-
alry out of twenty, 150 batteries of field, horse and
mountain artillery, besides a siege train of over 500
heavy guns. This force, comprising two-fifths of
the whole army, is at present divided as follows:-
In Transcaucasia, under the command of Lieuten-
ant-General Lorisamenikoff, there are ini readiness
to pass the frontier four divisions of infantry, one
brigade of riflemen, two divisions of cavalry, nine
regiments of Cossacks of the Kuban and Terek, 35
batteries of field artillery, and a siege train of about
250 heavy guns-in all, 115,000 men, among them
95,000 combatants. In this force the permanent
garrisons of Alexandropol, Gumri and other posts
on the frontier, amounting to from 4,000 to 5,000
men, are not reckoned. For the defence of the
Black Sea Coast, from Kertsch to Ackermann, there
are under the commander of the military district of


Odessa, Lieut.-Genl. Semeka, four divisions of in.
fantry, two divisions of cavalry, 28 batteries of field
artillery, and the garrisons of Kertsch, Otshakow,
Bender, Ackermann, and other smaller detachments
along the coast, numbering in all 100,000 men, 80,.
000 of them combatants. In Bessarabia, nominally
in the space between the frontier of Moldavia and
the junctions ofthe Odessa Railway at Ismeriuka and
Raydelnja, the troops of the Southern Army under
the command-in-chief of the Grand Duke Nicholas,
are located in close cantonments. They form four
Corps d'Armbe. Besides this, the army is provided
with a large pontoon train, sufficient to bridge over
the Danube at several places, and has, besides, a
detachment of soldiers of the Marine, in anticipa.
tion of a fight on the river. The total effective of
the Southern Army, including commissariat, sani-
tary service, &c, numbers 200,000 men, of whom
150,000 are combatants. The body guard of the
Grand Duke consists of two squadrons of Cossacks
of the Guard. In the space between Kameniec,
Podolski, Kiew, and Vladimir Volynski there stands
a reserve for the Southern Army of four divisions of
infantry, one brigade of riflemen, and one division
of cavalry. These troops are, like the rest, fitted
out to take the field, and may at any moment enter
into the first line. They number together 75,000
men, with 60,000 combatants. As a reserve of Cos-
sacks, ten regiments ot the second category have
been mobilised. With some batteries of artillery,
they number 10,000 men, with ,8,000 combatants.
Finally, in the depots, some 100,000 men are kept
ready to supply the losses in the mobilised army.
In all, Russia has more than 600,000 men on foot,
of whom about one half are ready on the frontier
lines, and only waiting for the order to begin.
The Russian Consulate at Constantinople has
warned shipping that torpedoes are being placed on
the coast between Soukum Kaleh and Fort St. Nic-
holas. Guardships are stationed at Foti and Sou-
kum roadsteads to indicate course. Balaklava must
not be enteredbefore communication.

Eau" of Dr. Holtz for
HAIR DYE.

r|[HIS WATER is of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
I Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
' no rival, )R. IIOLTZ's Hair i)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 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.
