The merits of this book is briefly referred to
by Captain Torry, Chief of Bureau of Trans-
portation, Centennial Exhibition. He says,
"I have examined it with great interest, and
have found it comprehensive in its treatment
of the subject, which you have so handled as
to hardly fail in recalling in the minds of its
readers who saw the Exhition the pleasure they
then experienced. To persons so unfortunate
as to have missed seeing the Exhibition the
book will be of great value, presenting as it
does, a faithful picture of its unequalled dis-
play."

'IERMTTDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


THE BOILING LAKE OF DOMINICA.
Mr. William Gifford Palgrave, the Arabian travel.
ler, British Consul, and English novelist, always find;
something interesting to write about, in whatever
part of the world he may be. His narrative of thb
journey into Central Arabia, which made him famous
is perhaps, the very best of modern books of travel
He has not only the spirit of an explorer, a geogra-
pher, and a man of science, but also the romantic
imagination which could give us such a story as Her.
man Ag/ia, where the glow and fervor of life ir. th
East are so wonderfully mingled with its tragic reali
ties. His observations, while Consul at Trebizondc
on the classic southern shore of the Black Sea, gav
him the material for his valuable essays on the East
ern question. More recently, he has held the Britisi
Consulate-at St. Thomas, in the West Indies, and h
is now on his way thence, half around the world, t
the Philippine Islands, where he is to represent th
Queen's Government as Consul at Manila. While ii
the West Indies he did not cease to travel and to lear
all he could, consistently with his official duties; an
among the places which he chanced to visit was on
of the most singular and remarkable lakes on th
surface of the earth.
In the summer 1875 the scientific world was sur
raised and interested to hear that a lake of constantly
oiling water had been discovered upon or near th
summit of the mountainous West Indian island c
Dominica. But where was Dominica ? It is not t
be wondered at that this question was asked both i
England and America. The fact that the negro na
tion which occupies the eastern portion of the grea
Island of San Domingo or Hayti calls itself the Do
minican Republic naturally led to the supposition tha
this might be the island meant. It was in reality
however, another and very different one, the lofties
of the Lesser Antilles, a British colony lying between
the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique
and which, instead of being as large as Ireland, con
tains only about three hundred square miles. Here
we were told, lay a boiling lake high among the moun
tains, and hitherto unknown to man. It was notI
mere collection of geysers or hot springs, but an ex
panse of water large enough to deserve the name c
a lake, and its presence explained the cloud of whit
vapor so often seen floating over the higher parts c
the island.
Last summer this lake was visited by Mr. Palgrave
and he has now contributed to Macmillan's Magazin
the first detailed description of it given to the genera
public. It seems certain that the lake was never see
by any European prior to the month of January, 1875
aud probably it had never been seen by any native
Traditions pointed to its existence, but these appeal
to have been based upon the fact that a stream (
warm and milky water, known as the Sulphu
river," rushes headlong from the highlands dow
to the sea, and a boiling source seemed necessary,
to account for the heat of its waves. This how
ever, might have had its origin in one of the so-calle
soufrieres, so abundant in the volcanic islands of th
West Indies, consisting of the floor of some dyin
crater, where tepid, hot, or boiling springs give fort
steam, gasses, and occasionally lofty jets of water.' In
deed, it turned out that the boiling lake was situate
in a soufriere the most active and extensive in th
entire Archipelago. Two expeditions to this regio
had preceded that of Mr. Palgrave, who was fortunate
in having for a companion and guide Dr. Nicholls,
young medical officer of the colony, and one of th
original party of discovery.
The starting place is Roseau, the principal town c
Dominica, on the south coast. Hence you ride u
the valley on ponies to a hamlet 1,500 feet above th
sea. Beyond this the work is all on foot, first through
the magnificent scenery of the West Indian tropics
forest, next amid thorny and prickly underbrush, an
then up and down the sides of gullies, where th
climbing is slippery and risky, and involves fantasti
capers, calling forth, says Mr. Palgrave, an occasions
English ejaculation, the same that Byron declares t
have no like for emphasis in any other language
While inoving through a labyrinth of small trees th
travellers suddenly came upon a sheer precipice wit]
so little warning that they just escaped tumbling sev
eral hundred feet down into the Grande Soufri6r
which lay below. This is a halt extinct crater, pave
with soft ashes, and bubbling with innumerable miners
springs of white, black, and red waters, which mingle
and rush out of one side in a scalding hot torrent
There is but little vegetation to cheer "the demoni
acal grandeur of this semi-infernal hollow;" mos
plants wither in the fumes of the vapor. The Blad1
Country of' England, says Mr. Palgrave, is a weiri
place, and suggests weird ideas enough, whether tra
versed by night or by day; but it is "mild domestic'
compared to nature's White Country, the sulphu
region of Dominica.
The boiling lake lies north east of the first crater
about an hour's climb, being separated from it by
second crater'with steep edges, nearly burned out am
comparatively quiet. "We took the intervening
barrier at a run," says the narrator, and cheeke
ourselves short at the'top. A few steps more would
have sent us head foremost into the boiling lake. A
strange sight to see, and not less awful than strange
Fenced in by steep, mostly, indeed, perpendicula
banks, varying from 60 to 100 feet high, cutout i]
ashes and pumice, the lake rages and roars like
wild beast in its cage; the surface, to which sucl
measurements as we could make assigned about 204
yards in length by mote than half the same amou
in breath, is that of a giant seething caldron, covered
with vapid steam, through which, when the veil is fo
a moment blown apart by the mountain breeze, ap'
pears a confused mass of tossing waves, crossmn
and lashing in every direction-a chaos of boilin


waters.'
In addition to their observations of the dimensionE
of the lake-about 600 by 300 feet-and its genera
appearance, the travellers ascertained that it was fiftj
or sixty feet deep within six feet from the shore;
that it is a little over 2,400 feet above the level o
the sea; that it is almost wholly supplied with water
from below ; and that the temperature of its waterE
was 185 F. where the waves beat against the shore
and nearly 2000 F. a little further out. At that ele.
ovation, and an atmospheric temperature of 640, the
boiling point of water is about 2070 F. The center
'of ebullition is near the middle of the lake, to which
of course, it was impossible for the party to convey
their thermometers. Except at one place, the sur.
rounding cliffs are absolutely perpendicular, and per.
mit no approach to the water. The outlet is a scald.
ing stream, which in the lowlands becomes known as
tha Sulphur river already spoken of.
The journey to the boiling lake of Dominica re-
quires an absence of three days and two nights from
Roseau. It is difficult, but offers no formidable ob-
.stacles to a fair pedestrian. There is no path, save
that which is made through the tropical vines by the
great cutlasses which the blacks carry for the purpose :
but on the other hand, there is no danger from wild
beasts or poisonous snakes, which last are unknown
on the island, and the climate of the elevated dis.
tricts is delightful. Mr. Palgrave predicts that many
others will visit this wonderful region, and it seems
to us that not only Dominica, with its boiling lake,
but many other1West Indian islands, present attrac-
tions which American travellers would hardly neglect,
if cognizant of them. Manila is regarded as a sort
of paradise for Consuls, and Mr. Palgrave says the
Philippines are, by all accounts, pleasant places, isles
of Eden lotos lands; but that they can scarcely be
pleasanter, or more lotos-bearing or more Eden-like,
than are the West Indies, taken as a whole, from
Jamaica to Trinidad.
In consequence of the prevalence among cattle
of rinderpest in Germany and the foot and mouth-
disease in England, the importation of hides and
cattle from those countries into the United States
are prohibited by a circular under date Washing.

IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot'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 fol-
blwiing method of graduating the action of the plam.
ter according to the will or condition of the patient,
viz., to put one, two, or three leaves dt. wet blot.
ting paper between the Sinapismi and the skip.
An old piece of fine linen may also be employed
instead of blotting paper.

FORESTRY IN BERMUDA.
The 5th Anniversary of Court Robin Hood, 5652,
A. 0. F., was held at the Masonic Hall, Hamilton,
on Thursday the 12th inst., at 8 p.m., when about
30 members attended and spent a most agreeable
evening. Br. P. C. R., W. H. Jones, C. R., in the
chair; Honorary Br. D. G. Lane, vice chair; the
following being the Toast list :
The Queen and Royal Navy."
His Excellency the Governor."
"The Army and Navy," responded to by Br.
Color-Sergt. Wilson, 46th Regt., and Br. G. Flood,
late R.N.
"The Executive Council and Permanent Secre-
tary," responded to by Br. T. H. Carberry in a few
charming words. Alluding to the Friendly Socie-
ties Act (English), he stated that some of the
clauses were anything but satisfactory, but that
the Executive Council and Permanent Secretary
were doing all in their power to obtain alterations
and revisions of some of the most obnoxious clauses,
and he felt assured that everything would be done
by the E. C. and P. S. to obtain amendments of
those clauses of the Act that were at all likely to
interfere with the good working of the Order.
(Applause). The Foresters Fire" was then given.
The next toast being Court Bermuda, 5319," was
responded to by Br. G. Flood, 5319.
Court Robin Hood" was next proposed by Br.
G. Flood and responded to by Br. T. J. Powell,
P. C. R., Secretary of that Court, who read the
balance sheet for Dec. 31, 1876, shewing the Court
to be good in a financial position, having 223 13/1I
and 64 members; 1 death having occurred and 175
days' sickness during the year 1876. (Great ap-
plause). P. C. R. Powell then proposed "The
Honorary Members," which was responded to by
Br. D. G. Lane, hony. member, who wished Court
5652 every prosperity and success.
Visiting Members" was next given, the toast
being well received by those present and responded
to by Sergt. G. Downs, 46th Regiment, and Br. G.
Flood.
The Chairman then proposed the A. 0. F." and
said he was sure the toast would be received by
every one present with the greatest cordiality, as
the Order was likely to be one of the largest in the
world. T. J. Powell responding, said he was happy
to have the opportunity of drawing their attention
to the surprising growth of Forestry during the
last 30 years. In 1846 the Order consisted of 161
Districts, 1614 Courts, and 76,990" members; year
by year it had increased, till on the 31st day of
December, 1876, it had 275 Districts, 4323 Courts,
and 491,196 members, with a capital of 2,182,360,
exclusive of the Widow and Orphan Fund, which
had a capital of 21,787 5/6. During the year
1875 the Order had paid for sickness 282,165 12/4 ;
for funeral allowances to members, members' wives
and widows, 83,111 15/; for medical attendance,
57,442 13/8; for benevolent and charitable pur-
poses, 7,484 12/3; thus shewing that the Ancient
Order of Foresters is one of the best societies in the
known world for the working man to join, as by do-
ing so he could obtain help for himself at a time of
need, be made a better man, and kept from attend-
ing places he might otherwise frequent. In con-
clusion he trusted that the A. 0. F. would long
flourish and do as much good in the future as it
had done in the past. (Great applause).
The Founders of the Court" was next proposed
and was responded to by Br. J. Grier, P. C. R., who
returned thanks for the honor done, and hoped that
Forestry might flourish (hear, hear). Br. J. Grier
then gave," Absent Brethren." Br. W. J. Heath re-
sponded for the absent, wishing them well and
hoped they would live in Unity, Benevolence and
Concord." Br. Heath gave the toast of "The La-
dies." Br. J. Grier, in a few words, thanked the
members on behalf of the ladies, and hoped those
who had no sisters of their own to love would take
someone else's sisters to love. (Cheers).
"Kindred Societies" was next proposed and
drank with enthusiasm. Br. T. J. Powell respond-
ed for Ancient Order of Freemasons,' Br. J. Grier
for B. M: B. A.'
A number of songs were given during the even-
ing by Brs. Ramous, Frost, Powell, Lane, Flood,
Sergt. Downs, 46th Regiment, and W. H. Jones,
P. C. R., C. R. A small String Band was formed
for the evening by Messrs. Frost, Ramous and
Powell, and played selections from a few of the
most celebrated authors with great applause from
the brethren. The meeting was a most cordial and
genial one, and the brotherly feeling that existed
throughout the evening was delightful to see. A
more agreeable meeting could not have been con-
vened th an the 5th Anniversary of Court 5652 of the
A.O.F., Hamilton. The health of The Chairman"
was drank with loud cheering and applause. Br. W.
H. Jones, C. R., returned thanks for the very cor-
dial manner in which the toast had been received,
and stated that he, had belonged to the Court since
its formation, and thought that a good Forester
would be a good man. The Band playing God
Save the Queen" closed the meeting at 2 a.m.

LONDON, April 14.-Eastern advices continue war-


like.
IMontenegro delegates left Constantinople yesterday,
the Porte having rejected their demands.
Tho Grand Vizier has notified Prince Nicholas that
the armistice is ended and "Would not be renewed.
Russian Consuls in Turkey are notified to prepare to
leave.
A more pacific rumor comes from Paris where
Count Orloff, Russian ambassador, is said to protest
against the statement that Russia would immediately
enter on a campaign against Turkey. On the contrary,
she is not disposed to reject fresh negotiations in case
the powers wished to make further attempts at con-
ciliation.
LoNDON, April 14.- Turkey's circular note to the
Powers, in response to Russia, declares her readiness
to disarm whenever Russia proposes to do' the same;
says disturbances in her provinces are due to foreign
instigation, and appeals to the treaty of Paris as
guaranteeing non-intervention. In conclusion, the
circular says: No consideration, therefore can
arrest the Government in its determination to protest
against the views enunciated in the protocol of 31st
March, and to treat it, as far as Turkey is concerned,
as destitute of all equity, and consequently of all obli-
gatory character. Exposed to hostile suggestions;
to unmerited suspicions, and violation of international
law, Turkey feels that she is now contending for her
existence. Strong in the justice of her cause and
trusting to God she determines to ignore what has
been decided without her and against her, resolved
to retain in the world the place which Providence
has destined for her. In this regard she will not
cease to encounter the attack directed against her,
with the general principle of public right and the
authority of a great act which pledges the honor of
the Powers that signed the protocol of the 31st of
March, a document which in her eyes, has no legal
claim to exact compliance. She appeals to the con-
science of the Cabinets which she has a right to con-
sider animated towards her by the same sentiments of
elevated equity and friendship as in the past. Im-
mediate and simultaneous disarmament would be the
only efficacious means of averting the dangers by
which the general peace is threatened. The reply
which the Imperial Government has made above to
the declaration of the Ambassador of Russia, furnished
the powers with suitable elements for bringing about
this result, which they most assuredly will not seek
to obtain by persisting in imposing upon the Ottoman
empire a sacrifice of right and honor, to which it will
not consent.'

At 3-15 P.M. Last of the Season.

Miss KEY was "At Home" to an afternoon party
at Clarence Hill on Wednesday last. .The
company began to assemble soon after the hour
named on the cards, and dancing, to the sweet
music of the Bellerophon's Band was not long
in commencing. The dancing engaged the atten-
tion of many, while those who promenaded the
well-kept grounds, visited the fine conservatory and
the extensive excavations near the North Shore
landing place, were very much gratified. The
party dispersed ere the sun set, greatly delighted
with the pleasures of the afternoon, which were
much enhanced by the attentive courtesy of Miss
Key and the gallant Admiral.

Colonel Morrison and the Officers'of the Royal En-
gineers gave a Ball at the Hamilton' Hotel last Tues-
day, the 17th, which was attended by a large number of
guests. The Dining Hall which was fitted up as a
Ball room was most tastefully decorated. The Band of
the 46th Regiment played the most exquisite music and
the dancing was thoroughly enjoyed and kept up with
much spirit until long past 3 o'clock. The Ball was
graced by the presence of some of our American (cou-
sin) visitors and \ rs. Morrison and Mrs. Gordon by
their affability and kindness made their guests feel so
much at ho-e that great success attended the enter.
tainment.
We understand that the next Cruising Race under .he
auspices of the R. B. Y. Club will take place on the 4th
May next. The course selected is from opposite the
Club steps, through the head of the Lane, round Ire-
land and Boaz Islands leaving them on the Port hand,
and returning through Timlin's Narrows to the Stake-
Boat. The start to be at 12 noon. The time allowance
has been reduced by one third, and the Cruising Races
thrown open to all boats hired by members for any,
length of time, in' order to obtain as many entries as
possible.

On Tuesday last two gentlemen having made an
excursion to Cooper's Island one of whom when on
the edge of the beach noticed a ridge of sand, which
he kicked with one of his feet, when, what he took to

formidable fangs. The gentleman instantly placed-
his foot ".on his neck;" upon which his snakeship
threw his coils round the legs of the gentlemen and
would have released himself but for the timely as-
sistance of the other gentleman, who seeing the
state of affairs drew his knife and soon decided the
matter in favor of his companion. The Reptile or
Fish is about 41 feet long, and beautifully spotted
like a leopard, and some of the knowing ones say it
is a "salt water eel"-but our old friend "Annota-
tor" says it is a sand snake." How did it get
there ?

THE IMMINENT WAR IN THE EAST.
LONDON, April 16.-In the House of Lords this
afternoon Earl Granville said the protocol was
nearly the same as the Berlin' memorandum; whyf
then bad not the Government accepted that ? thb
united action of Europe at that time mightb'bave
prevented war; neither Russia nor Turkey bad
then -taken an irretraceable position; Minister's
boasts about raising England's position abroad now'
subjected them,to ridicule. He advocated a Eu-
ropean concert for the better government of Turkey.
Lord Derby defended the protocol; he believed the
House would agree with him that under existing
circumstances it was best not to say anything con-
ceorning the future.
The London Times says that "The determination
of the Governnent to construct, not experimentally
but wholesale, several war ships of steel, is a suffic-
ient indication that one of the most obstinate diffi.
culties in shipbuilding has been overcome," Dr.
Siemens having succeeded in producing a quality
of steel fit for the purpose.

SUMMARY OF FOREIGN NEWS.
It is believed at St. Petersburg that nothing can
now be done to avert war. Austria is greatly con.
corned, and feels that she may be compelled to occu-
py Bosnia. The Russian fleet in these waters has
not yet received orders to sail for the Mediterranean,
as was reported. Greater demand for American
grain is expected in the event of hostilities. Tur-
kish and Russian securities have reached the lowest
point touched since the outbreak of the insurrection
in 1875. The relations between the Porte and Mon-
tenegro are broken off. The Porte believes that the
rupture will be delayed until Russia has communi-
cated her intentions to the powers ; but no hope of
a peaceful settlement is entertained. Russian sub-
jects in Turkey are to be placed under the protect-
ion of the German Embassy. Constantinople will
be declared in a state of seige immediately after the
rupture. The German contractors who supplied
the corps at Belfort and Strasbourg have arrived at
St. Petersburg, where they are making large con-
tracts. A dispatch says it is expected that war will
be declared at Kischeneff on April 21.

FIRST SHOCK OF WAR.-The New York Times of
the 19th ultimo, says: "Curiously enough, the
very first rumor of the shock of contending arms


comes from Montenegro. The armistice between
that Principality and Turkey expired on Friday,
April 13. It is now said that the fight has begun
at Nicsics, the point coveted for Montenegrin pos-
session. There would be a certain fitness of things
in Montenegro's reopening the great conflict. The
people of the Black Mountain have often been in
the forefront of battle with the Turks during many
centuries past. The Turkish forces, preparing for
the invaders from the North, are concentrating
around Rustchuck, and there are indications that
they may cross into Roumania near Kalafat before
the Russians leave their own territory. Roumania
is apprehensive of this strategic movement, and has
ordered out a force for the protection of the cap-
ital. It will soon be time to expect tidings of the
opening of the campaign."
Mr. Gladstone ill.-The Liverpool Courier yester-
day bad the following :-Mr. Gladstone's health is
causing his family anxiety, and medical men advise
him to go abroad.

EASTERN WAR RUMORS AND PROSPECTS.
Movements of th, Tur*s on the Danube-Affairs in t]
Constantinople- The Russian steamers between Con-
stantinople and Odessa withdrawn.
BUCHAREST, A'pril 18.-Orders have been prepar- E
ed with a view to rendering the immediate mobili- a
zation of the Roumanian Army possible. Much
anxiety prevails respecting the design attributed to
the Turks by occupying Roumanian territory near
Kalafat, even before the Russians cross the Pruth.
The Government has ordered all telegraphic dis-
patches announcing movements of troops to be t
stopped. Abdul Kerim Pasha, the Turkish Corn- I
mander-in-Chief, and Achmet Eyoub Pasha arrived i
at Rustchuk on Monday, and were to leave on (
Tuesday for Silistria. Seventy Krupp guns have s
reached Rustchuk for the Turks. The Russian d
Consul at Rustchuk has been ordered to prepare c
to depart. The general staff of the Turkish Army I
has arrived at Varna, going to Rustchuk and Tult-
scha. Two more Turkish iron-clads, making eight i
altogether, have arrived at the mouth of the Dan- 1
ube. The Montenegrin delegates from Constanti- c
nople are expected at Kiscbeneff, where, probably
they will have an interview with the Czar and ]
Prince Gortschakoff, who it is stated, will accom- ]
pany the Czar.
LONDON, April 18.-A special dispatch from Bel-
grade to the Times says: Genl. Fadaieff, the
Russian Panslavist, who arrived here recently, re-
mains almost incognito at present, and people cannot
discover his mission. It is doubtful whether he
represents official or unofficial Russia. The latter
is most likely the case. M. Ristics, the Servian
Prime Minister, declares that Servia made peace
and intends to preserve it. Notwithstanding this
ministerial utterance it is possible she may endea-
your to retrieve herself in the eyes of her critics "
A special dispatch from Vienna to the Times has
the following : "Accounts from Scutaria says the
Turks find less difficulty in penetrating the Miridite
country than was expected. This may be a feint on
the part of the Miridites to entice the Turks deeper
into the country, but it may also be that superior
armament tells, the Turks having good breach-
loaders, and the Miridites old muzzle-loaders."
A Reuter dispatch from Constantinople says the
Russian Charge d'Affaires, has been informed by
telegragh that he will receive instructions by cour-
ier. The Russian dispatch boat Argonaut left to-
day for Odessa; she will probably return on Mon-
day with instructions relative to the expected rup-
ture of diplomatic relations. The staff of the Rus-
sian Embassy is expected to leave next week.
Nothing is yet officially determined in regard to
Russian subjects who remain here after the out-
break of war. Russia wishes them placed under
the protection of the German Embassy, but, it is
believed, the Porte will require their expulsion
from Turkish territory.
Another telegram from Constantinople says a
rumor is current that an engagement has been
fought in the neighborhood of Nicsics. Great anx-
iety continues,.as Russia's decision is still unknown.
Hobart Pasha has inspected the Black Sea Fleet,
and has gone to inspect the fleet in the Mediterran-
ean.
Reuter's telegram from St. Petersburg says the
rumors of a change in the ministry at Constantino-
ple are contradicted. The Czfar and Czarowitcb
will leave St. Petersburg on Friday morning, and
arrive at Kischeneff on Monday night.
The Agence Russe states, as the Porte has per-
emptorily rejected the protocol, that agreement in
virtue of England's declaration is annulled. Rus-
sia, whose hands are thus freed, will endeavour to
accomplish Europe's mission in regard to Turkey.
Reuter's dispatch from Bucharest reports that the
Roumanian Government,has resolved to concentrate
.10,0000 men for the protection of the capital against
sudden attack of the Turkish irregular troops.
LONDON, April 19.-The Standard's special from
Constantinople reports that the Russian Steam-boat
Company has announced the suspension of their
service. The last boat to Odessa sails on Friday.
A Pesth despatch to the Standard cites a commu-
nication published by the official papers which de.-
clares that Austro-Hungary will only remain neu-
tral so long as its interests in the East are not men.-
aced. Intelligence from Belgrade leaves no doubt
that Russia is vigorously intriguing to incite the
Servians to break the peace. -
The Standard's Paris correspondent states that
the Mediterranean Squadron of the United States
has obtained the requisite permission to pass
through the Dardanelles from the Forte, and will
immediately proceed to the Bosphorus.
The Vienna Deutsche Zeitung announces that the
Cabinets of Vienia, London and Paris have notified
Roumania that the privileges she enjoys by virtue
of the Treaty of Paris would be considered null and
void should she actively co-operate with Russia.
The Times' dispatch from Constantinople says it
is rumored that the Porte intends to proclaim a
state of seige. Greece is preparing, in case of war,
to incite insurrection in the Greek Provinces of


Turkey and in the island of Crete
The Times' Vienna dispatch remarks that the fact
that Genl. Ignatieff will accompany the Czar would
indicate the possibility of a turn of things in Con-
stantinople favourable to direct negotiations bet-
ween Russia and -Turkey. As the Russian Army
advances gradually toward the frontier its place in
Bessarabia is being taken by troops coming from the
interior.
The Paris correspondent of the Times reports that
couriers, bearing a Russian manifesto to the Army,
to the nation, and to Europe, will start simultan-
eously with the Emperor, and arrive at their desti-
nations at the time his Majesty reaches Kischeneff
on Monday. On that day or the next the Czar will
issue a manifesto to the Army, which will be sim-
ultaneously delivered to the Powers and to the Rus-
sian Charge d'Affairs, who will then quit Constan-
tinople. This is the exact programme given in a
letter from St. Petersburg. .
The Times' Berlin special represents that Persia,
at Russia's bidding, threatens the Asiatic frontier
of Turkey.
The Daily Telegraph's dispatch from Pera says it
is reported that the Russians are moving troops
from Odessa to Poti, with the view of attacking
Turkey,on the Asiatic side.

A COMMENDABLE ACT.
To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle:
As acts like one that came under my notice yes-
erday are rare among us, I would like to give pub-
lcity to it. As one of the trucks that are employed
n removing freight from the steamships at foot of
Canal street, New York, was coming down West
street, the horses became unmanageable and started
town the street, and a little girl who was coming
down from Pier 40 with a lady would undoubtedly
iave been killed had not a young gentleman who
was coming from the Guion Pier, bravely seized the
rear horse and lifted the child at eminent risk to
himself, from under the horses. He, however, re-
ceived a severe blew from one of the animals. The
gentleman's name I afterwards ascertained to be
B. R. Southworth, residing in Brooklyn, and I
honor him for his action. C. RAMsDEN.
[Mr. B. R. Southworth is a native of Bermuda
and is now on a visit to the United States.]-Ed. R.

IMPORTANT MOVEMENT.
PROPOSrON FOB ALL THE MAITs FRox EUROPE AND
Australia for the Continent of America to be landed
at Halifax, N.S.
In the Dominion House of Commons on the 14th
instant, Mr. Mackenzie said, in answer to the en-
quiry whether it was true that the Government were
making efforts to have the Australian and Ameri-
can mails landed at Halifax all the year round, and
if so what prospect there was of a successful result,
that the Government were extremely anx-
ious to make Halifax the permanent port for land-
ing and embarking all the mails for the continent.
The success that had attended the working of the
Intercolonial had shown that if a bridge was built
at St. John, the American mails could be landed at
Halifax and delivered in New York at least twenty-
four hours in advance of the direct route. The
Government had opened correspondence with the
British Government with the view to secure the
landing of both the American and Australian mails
at Halifax, and that correspondence was still going
on. The Government had offered to carry the Au-
stralian mails to Detroit over the Intercolonial and
Grand Trunk at a uniform rate of speed, even
though it involved some loss to the Dominion in
a money point of view, believing that it would be
more than made up by the prestige it would give
the country and particularly Halifax, as being the
point where all mails were landed and embarked.
He expressed a very strong belief that the day was
not distant when such a policy would be carried
out, and though there might be some difficulty in
the way of bring it about at once the Government
would continue to press the matter on the Imperial
post office authorities, and he was sanguine that,
sooner or later, it must result in success. (Cheers).

DESTRUCTION BY FIRE OF THE STEAMER "t LEO"
IROM SAVANNAH FOR NAssAu, N. P.-Captain
Daniels of the Steamer Leo makes the following
statement:
We left Savannah on the 12th inst., reached
outside at 4 P. M. There was fair weather and a
fresh breeze up to 12 that night, when the blow
increased from the southeast; at 3 A. M. Friday
we slowed down, hauled up to the head of the wind
and hove to,the gale increasing very fast. At about
3:30 we opened the hatches to examine the cargo
and discovered fire below; we got out the hose and
threw water on the fire, but it increased so rapidly
that we had to leave it and close the hatches. Two
of the men were badly burned. Finding it impos-
sible to put the fire out and save the ship we got
the two lifeboats and the raft over, the fire gaining
so rapidly that we could get no more boats over,
and tbose who were forward were cut off from
those who were aft. When the first boat was
launched I went aft to the cabin door, but was
beaten back by the flames and could not go in.
I met the first engineer and Mr. Papendick. I
told First Engineer McDonald t' go into the boat
and save all he could. He went over the side into
the boat, with Mr. Papendick after him. I then
left and went forward to get the raft off. It was
impossible to reach the lady passengers, the flames
having taken possession of the cabin. There was
no intimation of the fire until the hatches were
opened, and I cannot account for its origin. There
were about eight in the boat that got away clear of
the ship. Mr. Papendick was in the boat one of
the best mietalic boats on board; I saw nothing of
them afterward. I looked around and saw no one
forward, and I then went on the raft myself. The
stewardess and two men were aft hanging on the
rail; the stewardess sang out to me to save her;
I told her to jump; she came down half way and


hung on, but the raft drifting away, and she not
letting go, was lost with the two men. After being
taken off the raft by the bark the captain headed
toward the ship to look after the boats, which he
did until 5 P. M., but saw nothing of them. We
were seven hours on the raft before being rescued.
The only passengers, two Mrs. Farrington of Nas-
sau .tnd Mrs. Papendick of New York, are mis-
sing and 17 of the officers and crew; they left the
vessel in a lifeboat.

Peter S. Archibald, Esqr., son of the late Judge
Archibald, and brother of the British Consul at
New York, dropped dead in the street at Truro,
N.S., on the 8th instant.
The French Mail Steamer Le Amerique which
went on shore on the 7th January last when on
passage from Havre to New York, at Long Branch
Beach, was floated on the 10th instant and towed.
into New York on the following day. It is said
that the Hull of the ship is in good condition.

The Southern Hotel" one of the largest houses
of entertainment in St. Louis, Mo., was destroyed
by fire on the 11th instant. It was full of guests.
The flames spread rapidly, causing a terrible panic
among the inmates. The exact number of lives lost
is not yet ascertained. Fifty is the estimate. Sev-
eral were killed jumping from the third, fourth and
fifth story windows. The guests were mostly
Southerners and Western people. Kate Claxton,
the actress, who narrowly escaped in the Brooklyn
Theatre disaster, saved herself by wrapping her face
in wet towels and running through the flame and
smoke down the main stairway. The German Con-
sul broke a leg jumping from a window. Several
female servants occupying the attic story perished.
The hotel was valued at nearly one million dollars.
Mr. William Felix Minster, late member of the
British House of Commons, committed suicide on ac-
count of the supposed death of his wife, who was
saved.
