S undisputed that WEBER has distanced all
competition, and must be to-day recognized as the
Piano-maker par excellence of the world, and 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-

also all th, floors, with the exception of one, and onm


floor timber broken ; the top timbers are all gone, the

our shores with the intention of boarding a vessel their
in the offing supposed to be in want of a pilot, and have
never since been heard of. The wreck of the Marcella
now found places beyond a doubt, if a doubt existed it
the mind of anyone, that her crew found their graves it

THE GOVERNOR AND MR. BILKEY.
It is now admitted by the Colonist that it was not the
Governor's duty to issue a License to any and every
person claiming to be a regular minister of a known re-
ligious sect in the United Kingdom, without inquiring
into his status ; and with that admission our controv-
ersy with out contemporary, as well as his charge
against the Governor, falls to the ground.
It would be the merest waste of time after this con-
fession to discuss the question whether it was proper to
decide that Mr. Bilkey was not what he claimed to be
until proof had been furnished that he was. But as a
matter of fact the Governor did not refuse this License
but merely postponed it to allow time for inquiry. But
the applicant did not wish to wait.
If, after admitting that the Governor's duty was to
make enquiry before issuing the License, it is any sa-
tisfaction to the Colonist to hold to the assertion that
the Governor's duty was not to withhold the License
until he had enquired into the merits of the case, we are
quite content to leave that Journal in full and exclusive
possession of its ingenious paradox.
We should probably not again have alluded to this
subject if we had not wished to add that it has
come to our knowledge that the issue of Licenses to
Mr. Morris did not commence under Governor Lefroy,
and that he himself had been struck with the impro-
priety of it; and had instituted the inquiry which re-
sulted in the framing of the Act to give validity to
marriages celebrated by that minister, so that the re-
sponsibility for that irregularity can in no sense be im-
puted to the present Governor.

BERMUDA MECHANICS' INSTITUTE,
HAMILTON.
S
The Members of the Bermuda Mechanics' Beneficial
Institute held their Twenty-eighth Anniversary meet-
e ing in their magnificent building in this town, on tho
y Evening of Monday, the 9th instant, when a large num-
ber of lady and gentlemen friends of the Members were
) present. The several Officers of the Institution pre-
3 sented reports on the progress of the Association dur-
h ing the past twelve months, which tended to prove how
valuable and well regulated an Institution it is. Some
of the older Members addressed the meeting in a very
e able manner, recapitulating the events of the past
twenty-eight years. The teacher of the School (in
- connection with the Institution), Mr. Davis, explained
d the working of the School and the success which had
a as yet attended it, pointing to the fact that it is at pre-
sent in a very promising condition, and that the conduct
e and advancement of the Scholars is all that can be de-
o sired, and stated that if its progress continued at the
h same ratio for another two years, four teachers would
be required instead of two. The evening was passed in
a very agreeable manner, all present appearing to have
" enjoyed themselves.

s" Vice Admiral Sir A. Cooper Key, K.C.B., F.R.S.,
t Commander-in-Chief of H. M. Ships on the North

6 day last. His Excellency examined the advanced
h classes in writing from dictation, history, English
grammar, geography and arithmetic ; the junior classes
e exhibited their copy books ; the children sang a hymn
from "Hymns Ancient and Modern," and then gave
the National Anthem. His Excellency, after address-
- ing the scholars in a few words of exhortation and en-
couragement to attend their school regularly, took his
leave.

THE CONCERT AT THE MECHANICS' HALL.

The Concert for the relief of the sufferers by the
late disasters at sea came off with great eclat,
last Tuesday evening, at the Mechanics' Institute,
as announced, which had been generously placed at
the disposal of the originators of the Concert free
of charge.
The object of the Concert being a charitable one
the sympathies of all were more or less enlisted in
the work and we need hardly add that in a case of
the kind His Excellency and Mrs. Lefroy were not
only foremost in their exertions to make the Con-
cert a success but the originators of the idea and
the moving spirits that caused so successful a result
to the object in view which we trust will be appre-
ciated by those who will benefit by their proceed-
ings.
The best amateur talent of the Island was ap-
pealed to for assistance and the programme we ap-
pend will show where it is to be found; and we can
truly sympathise with any one who had not the op-
portunity to listen to it. The large Hall was
crowded there not being standing room left for
those who had failed to procure seats. The pro-
ceedings commenced with an Overture from Suppe
by the Band of the 46th Regiment who kindly
volunteered their services with the permission of
Colonel Bennett and Officers of the Regiment and
it is a long time since we had heard such music dis-
coursed as the Band treated us with during the even-
ing. Their performancewas the theme of general
comment and'admiration. Capt. Lockhart, A.D.C.,
was the first to come smiling to the front and gave
one of those sweet impressive refrains for which he
is so well known-Mrs. Lefroy accompanying on
the Piano. Mrs. Barr sang as only a mermaid can
sing, then came a Piano Duet by Mrs. Gordon and
Mrs. Hare wonderfully well executed. Mrs.
Hare's Solo "Would you be a Sailor's Wife" con-
verted many, who declared they never would be, on
the spot, this song gave the Navy great play and
wherever a dark blue'uniform or a Navy man
coidld be seen it was surely noticed how interesting
the Concert appeared to be between him and his
fair companion. We may record here a little
speech that was made a short time ago in acknow-
ledging the services of this lady on a previous oc-
casion in the cause of charity. The Speaker on be-
half of the audience said that he felt much in-
debted to those who had kindly afforded them such
amusement but he must add, that he had often
heard the birds sing but nothing he had ever heard
was so sweet as that lady's, (Mrs. Hare), singing."
The Misses Tucker's Duet was rendered with that
taste and feeling which characterizes all they un-
dertake and Mrs. Hensman's "Nobil Signor was a
highly artistic effort appreciated by the Company.
The Part Song was quite a treat, which was fol-
lowed by a Selection and Overture by the Band
when Captain Ferrier, R.E., led off the second part
by The Lark now leaves his wat'ry nest," executed
in his best form. Mrs. Stevenson sang "The Lover
and the Bird" and we may fairly say brought down
the House; we heard a neighbour remark there was
no fear of the Royal Irish Fusiliers coming to grief
with a leader like that in the Regiment. Captain
Lockhart and Mr. Steevens brought the Concert to
a close with a Duet in place of the Glee on the Pro-
gramme. Most of the songs were encored and an
appreciative audience applauded heartily, on their
demands being complied with. Mrs. Gordon whose
playing was so much admired and Miss Harvey ac-
companied on the Piano during the evening.
We have never witnessed during our long resi-
dence in Bermuda a more artistic or talented per-
formance than that given on Tuesday evening and
we only hope it may be repeated. Many could not
obtain seats nor admittance and we are assured a
repetition would be apmuch appreciated by many
who were present thcl'Oe who were unavoidably
absent. The amount:-realized for the sufferers will
we understand reach the handsome sum of between
30 and 40. *
The audience was 'also the best we have seen in
Bermuda, it included-the elite and representatives
of all classes in the Colony. His Excellency we
regret to say was not sufficiently recovered to be
present but we notice Mrs. and Miss Lefroy, Ad-
miral Sir Astley Cooper Key, K.C.B., Miss Key, the
Chief Justice, Colonel and Mrs. Morrison and the
principal inhabitants and residents of Bermuda.
Captain Lockhart was indefatigable in his exertions
and deserves great praise for making the arrange-
ments which led to such a successful result.

THE LONG HOUSE, BERMUDA,
19th October, 1876.
MY DEAR LoRD,-Many of the members of the
congregation of Holy Trinity Church being very
desirous of evincing their appreciation of the Revd.
Mr. Curling's liberality to that Church have made
up a small purse to purchase a testimonial to pre-
sent to him on the occasion of his marriage, and
have deputed me (in the absence of Mr. Barr the
other Church Warden who is on a visit to Ameri-
ca), to forward to your Lordship the amount, and
to request you kindly to invest it in some suitable
token of 'their remembrance of him, and, in their
behalf, to ask his acceptance of it with their warm-
est congratulations.
I can only hope your Lordship will excuse the
liberty we take in asking this favor of you, and,
although the amount is small, believe that it is a
most sincere tribute of respect.
The Hon. E. Harvey has kindly furnished me
with an order on his House in Newfoundland for
the sum of 25, which I enclose.
Mrs. Darrell and my family desire to join me in
best respects to Your Lordship and Mrs. Kelly,
Believe me, yours faithfully,
W. H. DARRELL.

The Bishop of Newfoundland,

THE RECTORY, ST. JOHN'S,
December 20, 1876.
MY DEAR SIR,-I am very sorry that my absence
in England on pressing Diocesan business, and the
consequent delay in the reception of your kind let-
ter, has prevented me from acknowledging it until
now.
It will give me peculiar pleasure to comply with
your request and to try to find some suitable me-
morial of the affection which his Bermuda friends
entertain for Mr. Curling, and I am sure that it
will be specially gratifying to him to receive such
a token of their regard. He is now some 500 miles
away from us, but I have written to inform him of
your kind wishes and to consult him as to the form
which he would. best like your present to take.
When 1 hear from him I will communicate with
you again.
S Like himself, he is now, I hear, engaged in buy-
ing all the flour and provisions he can lay his hands
on in that remote part of the Island, in order, like
a true Joseph," to avert the threatened danger of
starvation among a large number of the inhabitants
owing to an entire failure of the herring fishery
Mrs. Kelly begs to join me in kindest messages
for a happy New Year to Mrs. Darrell and your,
family, your good kind neighbours, and all Ber-
muda friends, and I am,
My dear Mr. Darrell,
Most faithfully yours,
J. B. NEWFOUNDLAND.

ST. MARY'S PARSONAGE,
BAY OF ISLANDS, NEWFOUNDLAND,
26th January, 1877.
MY DEAR LORD BISHoP,-It is indeed a most
delightful surprise that my kind friends in Ber-
muda should have thought of me upon the happy
occasion of my marriage and should wish to pre-
sent me with so substantial a token of their remem-
brance and good will.
It is not allowable for me, I suppose, to ask to
whom I am indebted, but I must beg your Lord-
ship to be good enough to convey my grateful
thanks to those who have-so kindly thought of me.
A set of simple Silver Communion Plate would
be the present that I should value above any other.
Some day I trust that my wife and I may have
the great pleasure of visiting Bermuda and per-
sonally thanking my kind friends.
Nothing will, I trust, sever the connection which
has so long existed between the Diocese of New-
foundland and Bermuda.
I have always been in the habit of remembering
Bermuda as a part of this Diocese in my prayers,
and the fact of our dear Bishop having found there
his last resting place on earth, will, I trust, cement
the union.
Believe me, my Dear Lord, to be
Obediently and affectionately yours,

CHRISTIANITY IN INDIA.
Few, says L.layfair, are aware how rapidly the
native Christian community is developing in India,
not only in numbers, but in influence. Frequently
we stumble on facts like the following in the im-
partial columns of the paper of the Brahmo-reform-.
er, Keshub Chunder Dutt, showing the progress of
a purely Christian civilization. A young native
Christian lady passed the recent entrance examine.
action of the Calcutta University. In English aid
Persian, geography and history, she did well; in
mathematics alone was she deficient. Miss Chun.
dra-Mookbee Bose was educated in the mission-
School of )ehra Doon. Another Bengali Christian
lady is a Government Inspectress of Schools.-A A
third, Miss Tornt Dutt, is-a poetess of no mean
power, and an accomplished translator ol the French
poets into English as well as Bengali. These[
are only a few instances of what Cbristianity
is "doing for thev' omen of India, as it has
long done for the men, who, in the centres
of enlightenment at least, now demand ed-
ucated wives. Among the Hindus a bridegroom
who is a graduate of the university brings a far
better price in the matrimonial market than any
other, because his degree means fitness for well-paid
offices or situations. The caste system and rules of
"connubium," as the Roman law would call it,
make life very hard for fathers with daughters,
Swhence female infanticide, Koolin polygamy, and
the purchase of bridegrooms.-Plymouth Western

THE MORMON ATROCITIES.

The execution a fortnight ago, of John D. Lee, at
Mountain Meadow, Utah, for participation in the
massacre of American emigrants there twenty years
since, recalls to mind the butchery to the full as
horrible as any of the atrocities reported from Bul-
garia during the insurrection. Lee was a promin.
ent man among the Mormons, those Latter-day -
Saints who looked on the murder of a band of help.
less men, women and children as a meritorious act;
and his trial and execution will no doubt tell
strongly against his co-religionists, many of whom -
he has implicated in his confession. The main .
facts of the massacre are still remembered. A par-
ty of emigrants, numbering about 140 souls, left'
their homes in Arkansas, Missourit-and Ohio, to.
travel westward across the Rocky Mountains to
California, then the land of promise. The men were
armed, of course, having to traverse a wild country
for hundreds of miles, and to defend the.ni-'ves
against the bands of marauding Indians, the train,
which comprised sixteen waggons, one hundred
working oxen and a herd of nine hundred cattle,
being of a nature to tempt the Redskins terribly.
The Ohio-men did not agree well with their Arkan.
sas and Missouri companions, separated from them
at Fort Bridget, took the northern route to Califor.
nia, and thus escaped the miserable fate which
shortly after overtook their companions. The main
body reached Utah and there got into trouble with
the Mormons, who were then at war with the Uni-
ted States Government, on account of some attempts
made by the Latter-day Saints to convert some of
the women to the free and easy religion preached
by Joseph Smith. John D. Lee was at that time
a leading man in the Church and In command,of
the Nauvoo legion, a body of troops organized for
the protection of, the Mormon, territory: A plain
was arranged for the wholesale murder of the emi-
grants, Lee being chosen to carry it out. The emi.
grants were lulled into a false security by Mormon
promises of aid and comfort; they were told that
Brigham Young meant them well and would assist
them on their way. They encamped on Mountain
Meadow, a strip of ground among the mountains at -
the Sputh-west corner of Utah territory, and pre-
pared to rest for a few days before resuming their.
march. Scarcely had they established their camp p-
than they were attacked by the Indians engaged for'
the purpose by the Mormon authorities, though, of
course, the emigrants knew nothing of this,'and
made so gallant a resistance that after a week's
fighting the Redskins were beaten off. So far the
Mormon plan had not succeeded, and other means ,
had to be resorted to. The emigrants, it was seen,
would not yield without a struggle and treachery
was set at work to overcome them. Lee made his
appearance in the character of a rescuer at the head
of a large body of troops, and negotiated with his
intended victims. On condition of giving up their
arms and placing themselves entirely under the'
protection of the Nauvoo legion, they were pro.
mised a safe passage through the territory. After
some difficulty the terms were agreed to, and the '
purpose of Brigham -Young and his associates
was speedily consummated. Seventeen children,the
youngest in the train, were spared, but every other
individual was basely massacred. The troops
which took part in the butchery were sworn to.-
solemn silence, but the news of the deed spread
and in 1874, many years after the murders, Lee
was indicted with several others, for the killing
of the emigrants. He was twice tried, and the
second time found guilty and su.ntenced to be-shot.
Before his execution he made a full confession of
his share in the horrible business, maintaining
stoutly that Brigham Young was the man who was
really responsible,'and giving the hames of twenty.'
nine Mormons, all concerned in the affair. The
government cannot, of course, let things rest as
they are; Young denies complicity, but- he arid
the other men pointed r'out by Lee should be tried
and, if found guilty, punished as justly as Lee has
been. The whole story,. thus brought back to me -..
mory, is one which may well prejudice people
against the Latter-day Saints and cause a co,)apa-
rison to be made between the Mormons and the
Turks by no means to the advantage of the-formeri,-.

British Guiana has been called. upon to sustain
the loss of a young doctor, who was considered tlh
greatest scholar the colony ever produced. D
Herbert belonged to the wealthiest negro family i
British Guiana. A Coolie boy whom Dr. Herbe
had attended had died from some disease of the kid
neys, and to assertain the appearance of the disease
organ, Dr. Herbert decided to make a post morter
examination, acting solely on his own responsibility
and impulse, and for the benefit of those under h
charge. He found the kidneys of the boy to I
"waxy" and when he wasshaving off a thin slice to she
the consistency of the diseased organ, and observing t
those with him, 4" What would old Professor --
not give to see that," he touched the point of tl
third finger of his left hand with the wet lancet.
was a mere prick, and after sucking out all the vir
that could possibly (as he thought) have lodged in
he proceeded with his work. He thought nothing
further of the occurrence until the next day, Tuesda
when shiverines set in, accompanied by other const
tutional disturbance. On the following day, feelir
himself getting rapidly worse, he came to town i
the steamer, and was taken to Mr. Sargeant's res
dence, where he was immediately waited on by D
Watt, the chief of the District Medical Staff, who, to
gether with Dr. Hutson, attended him with unremil
ting care during the remainder of his illness. Bi
medical help was of no avail to avert the effect of tl
poison, and, despite the unceasing efforts of his kit
physicians, he grew worse and worse, and died yeste
day (Monday) morning. To-day his funeral was a
tended by a very large number of citizens in whose
estimation Dr. Herbert held an honorable place, an
his brother Masons, buried him with masonic honor
His death, especially under such painful circumstace
is universally deplored, and he will long be hell i
memory as a rare example of what his countryme
can accomplish when, like him, they throw themselvE
with energy and determination into an honorab]
pursuit.
'BARBADOS.-UJp to the 9th ultimo, the latest dat
from this Island, no writs had issued for a nev
election of the General Assembly. The Governor'
Inaction is said to lead the populace to conclude
that hbe is simply keeping the place warm for Mr
Hennessy whose return is confidently expected
-It is a pretty well ascertained fact that for th
past three months the receipts at the Colonial Trea
surer's Office have barely kept pace with the dis
bursements, and that the balance in the hands c
the Treasurer (which on the 31st March, 1876, wa
18,082) was on the 1st of the current month in
sufficient to pay the salaries and allowances of th
Civil Service which became due on that day.-It
the Parish of St. Michael in which Bridgetown i
situated 6,500 was spent the last year in direct
poor relief; 500 for Educational purposes; 3,
830 for water supply, and 753 for the Fire Brig
ade, making a total of 11,083. The population
80,000. The other 10 parishes it may be suppose(
spend in an equal proportion.
Bishop Parry has formally resigned into th,

official, discharge the duties of an Archdeacon him

JAMAICA.-The Governor, Sir Wm. Gray, tool
his departure in the R. M. C. Steamer Don o01
the 11th March. Criminal Proceedings have beet
commenced against the proprietor of the "Newt

The Government of the Island has been assumed

sion of Lieutenant Governor. Mr. Mackglashai
the Auditor General, has been made acting Colonia
Secretary.
The Jamaica Hotels Company for the establish-
ment in Kingston or its environs, of first-class hotel,

that the prospects are bright.
A proposition is before a Committee of the Le.

a year to the Telegraph Company.
TRINIDAD.-'The most absolving event is the
death of the Rev. Samuel La Rogue Bruce Rich-
ards, M.A., Rural Dean of the Port of Spain: he
was beloved and respected by all: the high estima
tion in which he was held by the community are
gathered from the fact that 8,000 persons attended
the funeral procession.

CAPT. VESEY'S QUEER CRAFT.
The Fastest and Ugliest Bark that Sails from New
York-Cattle for Bermuda.-There was towed past


the Quarantine station yesterday afternoon a queer-
looking, bluff-bowed bark, which Captain Weldon
of the Health Officer's boat pointed out as the
fastest bark sailing from this port. Her name is
the Eliza Barss, and she is as well known to pilots
and tugboat skippers as Sandy Hook Lightship.
She was built in Eastport, Me., twenty-nine years
ago, and is still a model of strength, speed, and
homeliness. For years she has been used to carry
cattle to the Bermudas, for the British troops on
that station. Her queer look is due to the fitting
up of her main deck for her fourfooted passengers,
and the building above it of a sort of hurricane
deck that extends her whole length fore and aft,
and is flush with the cabin roof. On the main
deck are comfortable accommodations for seventy
cattle; down below there is room for thirty more.
They are shipped by means of a sort of pen, into
which they are driven. The pen and steer are
hoisted by a whip from the main yard until on a
level with the deck, when the whole affair is swung
inboard and lowered to the hold. They reach
Bermuda in excellent condition, being liberally
supplied with hay and water on the passage. The
water is carried in immense iron tanks, containing
thousandsof gallons each.- New York Sun, March 24.

Many persons have found relief from indigestion,
and that nervousness which hinges on indigestion,
in lemon juice. An old magazine contains the fol-
lowing still more agreeable prescription, for summer
use, from Dr. James, a celebrated English physician
of "James's Powder" fame. "Dr. James begs his
compliments to Mr. Richardson, and recommends
him to take every day three or four half pints of the
juice of very ripe cherries. Put a sufficient quan-
tity in an earthern vessel, and bake them a little, so
as, in some measure, to destroy the elastic air in
them. Then let the juice be '., -. -- out and drank,
either with or without sugar. The juice should be
fresh eveiy day, or, at least, should not be drunk
v Ile sour or fermenting."


'LORD MACAULAY ON AMERICAN INSTITU-
TIONS.
[A recent number of Harpers' M .:';n: contains
four remarkable letters written by the late Lord Ma-
f caulay to the late Henry S. Randall, Esq., the biogra-
pher of Thomas Jefferson. We subjoin the second of
the series, which clearly foreshadows occurring events
in the United States.]
"Holly Lodge, Kensington, London, May 23, 1857.
S Dear Sir,-The four volumes of the 'Colonial
History ot New York,' reached me safely. I as.
sure you that I shall value them highly. They con-
tain much to interest an English as well as an Ame-
rican reader. Pray accept my thanks, and convey
them to the regents of the university.
You are surprised to learn that I have not a high
opinion of Mr. Jefferson, and I am surprised at your
surprise. I am certain that I never wrote a line, and
that I never in Parliament, in conversation, or even
on the hustings-a place where it is the fashion to
court the populace-uttered a word indicating an
opinion that the supreme authority in a state ought
to be intrusted to the majority of citizens told by the
head; in other words, to the poorest and most igno-
rant part of society. I have long been convinced that
institutions purely democratic must sooner or later,
destroy liberty or civilisation, or both. In Eu-
rope, were the population is dense, the effect of such
institutions would be almost instantaneous. What
happened lately in France is an example. In 1849
a pure democracy was established there. During a
short time there was reason to expect a general spo-
liation, a national bankruptcy, a new partition of the
soil, a maximum of prices, a ruinous load of taxation
t laid on the rich for the purpose of supporting the poor
3 in idleness. Such a system would, in twenty years
t have made France as poor and barbarous as the France
of the Carlovingians. Happily the danger was avert-
ed; and now there is a despotism a silent tribune, an
enslaved press. Liberty is gone, but civilisation has
4 been saved. I have not the smallest doubt that, it
we had a purely democratic government here, the
" effect would be the same. Either the poor would
plunder the rich, and civilization would perish, or or-
der prosperity would be saved by a strong military
government, and liberty would perish. You may
think that your country enjoys an exemption from
these evils. I will frankly own to you that 1 am of
a very different opinion. Your fate I believe to be
* certain, though it is deferred by a physical cause.
As long as you have a boundless extent of fertile and
unoccupied land, your labouring population will be
far more at ease than the labouring population of the
* old world, and while that is the case the Jefferson
politics may continue to exist without causing any
fatal calamity. But the time will come when New
England will be as thickly peopled as Old England.
Wages will be as low, and will fluctuate as much with
, you as with us. You will have your Manchesters and
Birminghams, and in those Manchesters and Birming-
hams hundreds of thousands of artisans will assuredly
be sometimes out of work. Then your institutions
will be fairly brought to the test. Distress every
where makes the labourer mutinous and discontented
and inclines him to listen with eagerness to agita-
tors who tell him that it is a monstrous iniquity that
one man should have a million while another cannot
get a full meal. In bad years there is a plenty of
grumbling here, and sometimes a little rioting. But
it matters little. For here the sufferers are not the
rulers. The supreme power is in the hands of a class,
numerous indeed, but select; of an educated class;
of a class which is, and knows itself to be, deeply in-
terested in the security of property and the mainten-
ance of order. Accordingly, the malcontents are
firmly yet gently restrained. The bad time is got
over without robbing the wealthy to relieve the indi-
'gent. The springs of national prosperity soon be-
gin to flow again, work is plentiful, wages rise, and
all is tranquility and cheerfulness. I have seen Eng-
land pass three or four times through such critical
seasons as I have described. Through such seasons
the United States will have to pass in the course of
the next century, if not of this. How will you pass
through them ? I heartily wish you a good deliver-
ance. But my reason and my wishes are at war, and
I cannot help foreboding the worst. It is quite
plain that your government will never be able to res-
train a distress and discontented majority. For with
you the majority is the government, and has the rich,
who are always a minority, absolutely at its mercy.
The day will come when in the State of New York a
multitude of people, none of whom has had more than
half a breakfast, or expects to have more than half a
dinner, will choose a legislature. It is possible to
doubt what sort of a legislature will be chosen ? On
one side is a statesman preaching patience, respect
for vested rights, strict observance of public faith.
On the other is a demagogue ranting about the tyra-
ny of capitalists and usurers, and asking why any
body should be permitted to drink Champagne and to
ride in a carriage while thousands of honest folks are
in want of necessaries. Which of the two candidates
is likely to be preferred by a working man who heats
his children cry for more bread ? I seriously appre-
hend that you will, in some such season of adversity
as 1 have described, do things which will prevent
prosperity from returning; that you will act like
people who should in a year of scarcity devour all
the seed-corn, and thus make the next a year not of
scarcity, but of absolute famine. There will be, I
fear spoliation. The spoliation will increase the dis-
tress. The distress will produce fresh spolia-
tion. There is nothing to stop you. Your Consti-
tution is all sail and no anchor. As I said before,
when a society has entered on this downward progress,
either civilisation or liberty must perish. Either
some Caesar or Napolian will seize the reins of gov-
ernment with a strong hand, or your republic will be


as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians in
the twentieth century as the Roman empire was in
the fifth, with this difference, that the Huns and Van-
dals who ravaged the Roman Empire came from
without, and that your Huns and Vandals will have
been engendered within your own country by your
own institutions.
"'Thinking thus, of course I cannot reckon Jeffer-
son among the benefactors of mankind. I readily
admit that his intentions were good and his abilities
considerable. Odious stories have been circulated
about his private life; but I do not know on what
evidence those stories rest, and I think it probable
that they are false or monstrously exaggerated. I
have no doubt that I shall derive both pleasure and
information from your account of him.
I have the honor to be, dear sir, your faithfal
servant,

Gen. Egbert L. Viele, the civil engineer, called
the Gilbert Elevated Railroad the conceit of an
idiot, wrought out for the destruction of lunaties-
a bogus, fraudulent structure. !... .... E. Field,
who left his country for his country's good, stood
godfather to it. Gen. Viele spoke of the present
owners of the Greenwich street Elevated Railroad
as old gentlemen who bought up a lot of old iron
in Greenwich street for -'12,1, .'y), "Now," he
said I see this road in the Stock Exchange List as
representing $10,000,000 of bonds and $12,000,000
of stock-$22,000,000 for the old iron. The pro-
blem of rapid transit has been solved as far down as
Forty second street from the Harlem river ; and the
whole solution of the question lies in continuing the
underground railroad down to the Battery. But
there is not -',000,000 .. in it.-N. Y. Sun.

To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtinu easily in a few
moments a decided result with the smallest possible
quantity of the remedy, are the problems which M.
Rigollot has solved in the most conclusive and sa-
tisfactory manner. l igolloi's Sinapism in leaves
will, therefore, be found in every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer-
gency renders it an invaluable remedy fur various
disorders.
