Of self, t'is thine LEFROY May prosperous gales
Attend thy homeward way May blessings rain
Upon that head that ever thought and wrought
For Queen and Duty and this country's good.
Victoria never soldier had more leal,
Or Albion, rich in thousand hearts of oak,
A son to her more true-That generous hand
Would share the last loaf with a beggar's son;
The stranger welcome at Mount Langton gate
Has always found, and Hospitality
Dwelt in those walls, the home of Art and Lore ;
Thy love of Nature caused a wealth of flowers
To glad the eyes of those who wander'd there,
And verdure, gathered from each kindred clime,
Tended with care repaid thy fost'ring hand.
Alas long years beneath a tropic sun
Have done their work upon thy honor'd brow,
And, sadden'd, we have seen the blow descend
That made us feel how much we had to lose ;
May England's breezes brace thy stricken frame-
May they prolong for those thou lov'st a life
Like Bayard's fearless and without reproach.

GROWTH OF THE EARTH.
A London newspaper says: "In the interesting
course of lectures on astronomy which Mr. R. A.
Proctor has been delivering in the theatre of the Soci-:
oty of Arts, for the especial benefit ot young persons,
his subject lately wLs 'Meteors, Comets, and Stars.'
In speaking of meteors, he developed at some length
the thought, which will strike many as a novelty, that
the earth is, has always been, and so long as it shall
exist as a part of our cosmical system must ever con-
tinue to be growing in size. Meteors are bodies, com-
posed of extraterrene matter, which travel in vast
belts and in highly eccentric orbits round the sun.
These belts, or systems of meteors, are very numerous
and when their orbits intersect that of the earth they
are brought within the influence of i!s gravitation,
and on entering our atmosphere become luminous and
fall to the surface of our planet in those periodical
showers of shooting stars which are so well known.
Not a night passes in which some falling stars are
not seen, and in certain months and on particular
nights the golden rain is incessant. Of1 course, too,
meteors fall in the daytime, although unseen. It is
computed, said the lecturer, that hundreds of thou-
sands of these extraterrene bodies become incorpo-
rated with the earth every 24 hours, and 400,000,000
in the course of each year. They may vary in weight
between a few grains and a ton. One is known to
have fallen in South America which weighed fifteen
tons. Yet these small accretions to the earth's matter
would take many millions of years to add a single
foot to its diameter. It had been shown that one
of these meteoric systems followed in the track of a
small telescopic comet, although not to be confounded
with its tail, and it was now the general opinion of
astronomers that all these belts of meteors were simi-
larly related to comets. Mr. Proctor then proceeded
to speak of comets and stars,"

one of the holidays that strengthen everyone, who

After some very pretty singing by the children,
taken up successively by individual schools, and the
Doxology sung by all present, the Governor and
family walked through the long line of children,
speaking kind words of encouragement to them.
After the Governor's departure the children spent
a happy afternoon on the Sands, enjoying the good
things provided by their kind Teachers.
The Mozart Band was present and added greatly
to the children's enjoyment.

THE BAD RELATIONS BETWEEN GERMANY AND
FRANCE.- If Count Von Moltke's speech to the
German Parliament is correctly reported either he
is preying on the fears of that body to get an extra
" appropriation" for one of his pet measures, or
trouble is brewing between Germany and France.
The great strategist and soldier says that the time is
' not far distant when every government would be
compelled to strain all its strength for securing its
existence;" also that "much as he desired peace,
he did not believe in it."
These remarks, highly significant and ominous
coming from a man who is habitually reserved and
cautious and usually silent, were not made apropos
of Eastern war. He makes no reference to the rup-
ture between Russia and Turkey, or to the possible
entanglement of Germany in Eastern affairs. This
remarkable speech was directed solely to an ex.
position of the dangers to which Germany is now
subjected from France, and the need of preparing
to meet them successfully. As France is arming to
the teeth with a view of revenging herself on Ger-
many some time or other, so it is indispensable for
Germany to maintain an army great enough to
whip France once more whenever she chooses to
try conclusions again with the victors of 1870.
This is the unspoken argument that underlies the
speech of Von Moltke. He leaves it to be plainly
inferred that the peril to Germany is coming from
France, and throws upon her the responsibility of
the war which he thinks may be precipitated at any

UTILIZATION OF THE MERCHANT MA-
RINE FOR WAR. (
At a meeting of the Institute of Naval Architect,
a paper was read by Mr. Barnaby, the Director of
Construction for the Royal Navy, on the fighting
power of the merchant ship in naval warfare." It
is a welcome sign that the attenfiofof o ifflicalg as
been directed to this point, for there is ino doubt
whatever that a proper utilization during wwr of the
enormous resources in tonnage, steam,,,,and men
which our merchant marine can dispose of would'
much more than double our capacity for ffghtfing
on either the defensive or the offensive. Mr. Bart-
naby's paper chiefly referred't the practicanbility of
our merchant steamers being qualified to defend
themselves against an enemis ,cruisers or. men-of-
war. He would have every, fi st-claps' steamer
built with water-tight bulkheads, so that ahbemight
"' float in smooth water wifthany one of her co6m-
partments in free communication'with the sea,"
thus making her comparatively independent of
chance shots or of any concussion even by 'a torpedo'
or a ram, which might tear.,opqn?,yawning.orjfic g
at one particular section. N'ext, as the machinery
of a merchant vessel is, unlike that of a man-of-
war, generally above the water line, and therefore
very much exposed, he would provide it with a de-'
fence of some kind. Fast merchant steamers he
would arm with two 64-pbunder guqs.ii~- th' bow,
and also with a ram, erecting a, shot-proof screen
across the deck before the machinery. 'Thli could
be done at a few hours' notice;, and the stern could
be similarly defended. So long as they con ld be'
fought bow on," they therefore would compare
favourably with unarmouried'lhps of war. About
broadside he was not so clear, b`it he did not des-
pair of giving at short notice an efficient broadside
armament and screens if they were found to be de-'
sirable. But, as he pointed out, a fast unarmoured
vessel with a good armament would be reasonably
safe, since the equally fast unarmoured ship of war
or privateer would not, and tbeslouwer or arpmoured
ship could-not, attack her. She"would make a good
running fight with the first, and show a clean pair
of heels to the last. This is about bhe-gist of'ihe'
whole matter, and if we se.urq these points all th0e4
fleets of our great companies and' the best vessels
of our chief shipowners will not only be safe in the
event of war as carriers of merchandize, but 'will
also be most useful auxiliaries to the Royal Navy,
The task, too, is greatly facilitated by the willing
co-operation of the leading shipowners, who are-
shrewd enough to see that,.,huilesuch addenda as
Mr. Barnaby spoke of would be of vital importance
in time of war, one of the principal, the watertight,
bulkheads, is equally useful in the ordinary avoca-
tions of any steamer on any voyage. To save life
and property at sea is a national gain'which is
multiplied infinitely when by one and the same in-
novation we reduplicate the powers of Imperial de-
fence. 8 u. :,,

The wantonly-libelled men had thus become credit-
ors of the libeller. They now had it in their power
to make him repent of.his audacity. He could not
obtain his certificate without their signature, and
*without It he could not enter into business again.
He had obtained the number of signatures required
by the bankrupt laws, except one.
"It seemed folly to hope that the firm of brothers
would supply the deficiency. What! they who
had been cruelly made the laughing-stock of the
public, forget the wrong, and favour the wrong-
doer ? He despaired; but the claims of a wife and
children forced him at last to make the application.
Humbled by misery, he presented himself at the
counting-room of the wronged. W. was there
'alone, and his first words to the delinquent were,
'-Shut the door, sir!' sternly uttered. The door
was shut, and the libeller stood trembling before
the libelled. He told" his tale, and produced his
certificate which wan s instantlyy clutched by the in-
jured merchant. ;i
"'You wrote a pamphlet against us once!' ex-
claimed W. The supplicant expected to see his
parchment thrown into the fire ; but this was not
its destination. W. took a pen, and writing some-
thing on the document,, handed it back to the bank-
rupt. He, poor wretch, expected to see there,
Rogue, scoundrel, libeller!' inscribed ; but there
was, in fair, round characters, the signature of the
firm! We make :it "a rule,' said W., never to
refuse signing the certificate of an honest trades-
man, and we never heard that you were anything
else.' The tear started' into the poor man's eyes.
Ah !' said W., ,',y saying was true. I said
you would live to repent writing that pamphet. I
did not mean it as threat; I only meant that some
day you would know us better, and would repent
you had tried to injure us. I see you repent of it
now," 'I do-I do;" said the grateful man.
'Well, well, my dear fellow,' said W., you know
us now. How do you get on ? What are you go-
ing to do?' The poor man stated that he had
friends who could assist him when his certificate
was obtained. But how are you off in the mean-
time ?'-and the answer was, that, having given
up everything to his creditors, he had been com-
pelled to stint his family of even the common neces-
saries of life, that he light be enabled to pay the
cost of his certificate. My dear fellow,' said W.,
'this will never do,' ybur family must not suffer.
Be kind enough to take this ten pound note to yonr
wife from me. There, there, my dear fellow-nay,
don't cry-it will be all well with you yet. Keep
up your spirits, set to., work like a man, and you
will raise your head yet! The overpowered man
endeavoured in vain I to express his thanks-the
swelling in his throat, forbade words; he put his
handkernhiAf to his fasp and went out of the door.

invaded disunited Germany. The French appre-
bended similar treatment now that Germany was
united. Hence the haste, zeal and uncommon in-
telligence with which the colossal work of French'
army reorganization was being completed. Hence
the locating of excessively large numbers of French
troops, especially cavalry and artillery, between
Paris and the German frontier, a measure which
Germany would sooner or later be obliged to reci-
procate. In France the army was the pride of all
political parties. Its defeats were forgotten, and
its future was regarded with confidence. In Ger-
many there was a marked disposition to be nig-
gardly towards the army. The new captaincies
proposed were intended to prepare 122 important
officers in peace for the work they would have to do
in war. Depend upon it, these captains would
have very little spare time for amusement if they

against a declaration of war, pointing out the efforts
of Turkey to improve the position of the Christian
and satisfy the demands of the Powers. In the ab-
sence, therefore, of any provocation on the part of
Turkey Safvet Pacha declares the Porte is at a loss
to understand Russia's attack and consequently ap.
peals to the Treaty of Paris and the mediation of
the Guaranteeing Powers. It is rumoured at Con-
stantinople that the Sultan will review the Army
of the Danube. He has sent a telegraphic despatch
to the Commander-in-Chief with orders that it be
read to the troops. The authorities recommend that
the newspapers observe moderation in their com-
ments on passing events. In the Mosques Mussul-
mans are advised to keep cool and on good terms
with their Christian fellow citizens. In the Cham-
ber of Deputies yesterday several Christian mem-
bers protested against Russia's assertion that she
declared war for the protection of the Christians in
Turkey. Ththedeclared they did not desire the
protection of Russia. The Christians were ready to
take part in the defence of the country.
GERMANY AND FRANCE.
Significant Speech of Von Moltke in Advocating In.
creased Army estimates-The Military preparations
of France pointed to as a reason for granting them.
BERLIN, April 24.-In to-day's sitting of Parlia-
ment, the items of the war estimates which had
been referred to the Budget Committee, came up
for discussion. The increased grant for 105 new
captaincies gave rise to a protracted debate.
Gen. Von Moltke insisted on the necessity of the
grant. He said he wished for a long peace, but the
times did not permit such hope. On the con-
trary, the time was not far distant when every Go-
vernment would be compelled to strain all its
strength for securing its existence. The reason for
this war was the regrettable distrust of Govern-
ments towards each other. France had made great
strides in her defenses. Uncommonly large masses
of troops were at present between Paris and the
German frontier. Everything France did for her
army received the undivided approval of her peo-
ple. She was decidedly in advance of Germany in
having her cadres for war ready in time of peace.
Germany could not avoid a measure destined to
compensate for it.
The increased grant for captaincies was then
adopted. The Progress, Centre and Socialist par-
ties voted against it.
LONDON, April 25.-The Times Berlin dispatch
gives additional quotations from Gen. Von Moltke's
speech in the German Parliament yesterday. The
General stated that the French military budget
exceeded the German by 150,000,000 francs a year,
exclusive of extraordinary grants. He would not
discuss the question whether France intended to
bear this enormous burden for a prolonged period,
or whether she was arming for definite purposes
only; but he must needs say that as much as he
desired peace he did not believe in it. The French
journals were full of spite and hatred against Ger-
many. France remembered how many times she had
wian, lor we snan now nave ior a sngie consiaera-
tion national interests. The nation waits unani-
mously to support whatever measure the govern-
ment may judge necessary safeguard to those in.
The Post said :-The conduct of a despotic and
overbearing Empire will be resented by every free
people. For ourselves we may safely affirm that
we shall not look on patiently while the Cossacks
trample down the Turkish constitution and bar
our own road to the East.
England Preparing.-Orders have been issued
from the War Office to British officers on leave of
absence to rejoin their regiments immediately.
This statement is made by an influential paper in
the confidence of the government, and is regarded
as ominous. It is also announced that the British
fleet at Malta has been ordered to proceed eastward.
There was a Cabinet Council yesterday, and
another will be held to-day. This is significant of
anxious discussion and of weighty determinations.
The subject of the discussion is probably the reply
to Prince Gortschakoff's circular.
Von Moltke's speech caused a gloomy feeling in
Paris, notwithstanding the tranquillizing assuran-
ces of the French papers.
The Neutrality of the Danube.-The Danube Com-
mission, composed of delegates from the six great
Powers will meet at Galatz on May 7. They will
attempt to secure the solemn engagement of both
combats to religiously respect neutral navigation
and also the works in progress for the improvement
of the navigation of the Lower Danube.

to the Daily News says: It is rumored that the

CONSTANTINOPLE, April 26.-The Turkish troops
are reported to have occupied Kalafat.
INSURRECTION ON A GREEK ISLAND
ATHENS, April 26.-The inhabitants of the Greek
island Hydra have refused to obey the law calling
out the extraordinary reserve, and made a seditious
manifestation against the authorities. The con-
script lists were destroyed, and the telegraph con-
necting the island with Athens was also destroyed.
The Newfoundland Legislature has passed a tariff
bill imposing 20 per cent duty on ready made
clothing and manufacture of wool, and 13 per cent
on articles generally, not subject to a specific duty.
A bounty of 5 per cent is allowed on the original
cost of hemp, flax, cotton, and wool imported and
manufactured into merchandise.
There was a rumor in the lobby of the House of
Commons on th e 24th that the government has re-
solved to send a fleet to the Suez Canal, and that
the Earl of Beaconsfield has visited the Queen to
obtain Her Majesty's sanction.
Further supplies of arms and ammunition have
been ordered both by Russia and Turkey of manu-
facturers in the United States.
The Indian Famine.-A Calcutta dispatch an-
nounces that it is apparent that the famine shows
traces of approaching its worst point, but there is
good reason to hope that the maximum distress may
be less severe than was anticipated.
Cholera in India.-Another despatch from Cal-
cutta states that a serious outbreak of cholera has
occurred in Akyab. Twenty-five per cent of the
small European population died in thirty hours.
Gone to the Seat of War.-The United States
Steamer Vandalia sailed from Ville Franchese for
Constantinople Saturday. The remainder of the
American Fleet goes to Smyrna and the Syrian coast
The Prince of Wales toasts America.-The Prince'
of Wales on Saturday embarked at Ville Franchese
on the British ironclad Sultan. He was visited on
board by Admiral Worden of the United States
Navy, and, with the Duke of Edinburgh, returned
the Admiral's visit. At a banquet on the Sultan
the Prince of Wales proposed a toast to the French
and American navies.
FOREIGN WAR AND AMERICAN BUSINESS.--What-
ever may be the political result of the European
war, it is certain that its effects will be beneficial to
business in America. A marked and general ad-
vance has already occurred in everything that is
likely to be demanded by the opposing armies.
Flour, wheat, corn, ry, eat corn, rye, pork and bef, all of which
are absolute necessities to large armies, advanced
noticeably yesterday in the principal commercial
centres, and even such less prominent military
stores as coffee, sugar and whiskey participated in
the general rise.-N. Y. Herald, April 26.
