"As one by one at dread Medea's strain
The sickened stars fade from the ethereal plain;
As one by one by Hermes' Wand oppressed,
Closed Argus' eyes in everlasting rest."
So the reign of dulness in the Pulpit and secularity
out of it may have almost quenched the light of her
candlestick, and cast away the affections of her
people.
Such cannot be truly objected now, and if the
saintlike example of one wise and holy man has
been withdrawn, we know that he did not live or
labor in vain, and that his Episcopate saw an ad-
vance in the activity of the Church which ought to,
and which I trust will, knit those affections more
strongly the more the trials of the future may press

As far as I know, the experiment of a purely vol-
untary system for the support of religion is wholly
untried in this Colony; the so-called voluntary
bodies, (with possibly one exception) leaning upon
the support of organizations abroad. It is one
which I regard with profound mistrust. But if it

monthly registers of the Rain in different parishes to
the Governor are requested to continue to transmit them
to Hon. James Tucker, Colonial Secretary.
II.-Gentlemen who have received 'within the last
2 years Grape Vine cuttings from Mount Langton will

III.-Gentlemen who received some weeks ago sam-
ples of a Silicated artificial manure for trial (the Pop-
plein manure) will confer a favor by informing the
Colonial Secretary whether it has succeeded with them,
that is to say, (a) whether land on which it was tried

been used, without the Popplein. They are requested

ADDRESS TO GOVERNOR LEFROY BY THE
CLERGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND
IN BERMUDA.
On Tuesday last, May 1st, the Clergy of the
Church of England in Bermuda waited upon His
Excellency the Governor at Mount Langton, for
the purpose of delivering the following Address:-
To His Excellency
Major-General JOHN HENRY LEFroY, C.B., R.A.,
Governor, Commander-in-Chief, &c., &c., &c.
We, the undersigned Clergy of the Church of
England in Bermuda, desire to approach your Ex-
cellency with feelings of deep respect on this the
eve of your departure from this Colony, the Gov-
ernment of which you have administered with so
much ability and faithfulness for the past six years.
We would beg permission to express our sense of
your Excellency's impartial distribution of justice
to all, your uniform study of the welfare of the
whole community, and your successful efforts in
the cause of education for all classes, oftentimes
aided in no small degree by generous contributions
from your private purse.
It is with thankfulness to the great Disposer of
all hearts that we recall your Excellency's loyal
attachment to the Church, and the exemplary evi-
dence you have afforded of delight in her public
ordinances.
We remember with gratitude the warm interest
in the welfare of the Church in this dependency of
the British Empire which your Excellency has
evinced during the whole period of your Govern-
ment; the ready assistance which you have ren-
dered in the efforts made from time to time to ob-
tain Synodical action for the Church ; and the wis-
dom and calmness with which you have presided
at the many public meetings of Churchmen held
for that purpose. And whilst we deeply regret
that as yet those efforts have been unsuccessful, we
are led to hope that the steps taken under your
Excellency's Administration will conduct before
long to the attainment of this desired object.
We thank your Excellency very sincerely for
the readiness with which you took part in the en-
deavour to form the "Bermuda Church Society,"
and for the generous donations to its funds for-
warded by your Excellency and Mrs. Lefroy.
We have heard with much concern of your Ex-
cellency's recent indisposition, but we heartily
pray that He to whom alone belong the issues of
life and death may be pleased to restore you again
to health, and, whilst we cannot but be sensible of
the heavy loss which this Colony will sustain in
your retirement at the expiration of your term of
office, we trust that you may be permitted to enjoy
a long course of usefulness in any branch of the
public service to which you may be hereafter
called.
We would beg respectfully to offer our hearty
good wishes for the Divine blessing upon your-
self, Mrs. Lefroy, and the several members of your
family.
We have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's humble obedient Servants.
SIGNED BY ALL THE ISLAND CLERGY,
Eight in number.
The following was the kind reply which His
EXCELLENCY was pleased to make :
MR. LOUGH, AND REVEREND GENTLEMEN.-It
cannot but be deeply grateful to my feelings to re-
ceive at your hands so cordial an expression of your
personal esteem, and of your approval of my con-
duct in regard to one of the most important of all
the relations in which it is open to the Governor of
a Colony to exercise an influence, by example, for
good or ill.
Attached from my birth to that reformed branch
of the Church Catholic which you represent, desir-
ing to live and hoping to die in her Communion, it
was most natural that I should strive, in no spirit
of exclusiveness, but in the earnestness of a pro-
found conviction, to use the talent committed to me
in fostering and supporting what I am persuaded
to be the firmest stronghold of vital religious truth
now left in the world, and the strongest barrier
against the crushing influence of Spiritual Despot-
ism on the one side, and religious anarchy on the
other, namely, the doctrine and the organization of
the Church of England.
There may have been times, Gentlemen, here as
elsewhere, when the beauties which sparkle through
her services and the eternal truths which like strong
foundation stones support the fabric of her teaching,
have been obscured by apathy, when


the fire of disendowment should be passed through
by National Churches to burn out the dross that
mingles with them, I for one have no fear that
the Church of England here will suffer from the
ordeal ultimately more than the bodies which have
separated from her, or that her members will prove
less responsive to the sacred obligation of seeing
that they who preach the Gospel live of the
Gospel."
But I would venture to remark that no effort
can, in the meantime, be misapplied which aims at
enrolling and organizing the supporters of the
Church of England, and preparing the minds of the
laity for a change involving new and onerous calls
upon them.
I am not sure that these measures have been as
yet taken in hand in a sufficiently practical
manner.
The Legislative recognition of absolute indepen-
dence cannot, I think, be logically withheld from
the Church of England, when, by the expiration of
the Clergy Acts, State support has become a thing
of the past, whatever confusion may prevail on the
subject now. The laity will have their voice not
in Assembly but in Synod, and there it will, under
the proposed Constitution, be secured its full in-
fluence.
I have been led, Reverend Gentlemen, to touch
a little upon a question still in the sphere of politics
by your allusion to the public meetings I have had
the honor of presiding at, and which, to my disap-
pointment, have produced so little apparent result.
But I trust that the object will not 'be abandoned,
and that whenever these Islands are again under
Episcopal charge, men's minds will be found pre-
pared for a system of Church Government adapted
to a small community, and one harmonizing ancient
usage with modern necessities.
1 have only now, Gentlemen, to endeavor to ex-
press my deep sense of the unexpected honor you
have done me, and my gratitude for a kindness be-
yond my deserts.
Your sympathy and your good wishes are alike
precious. I have been blessed with such domestic
support and aid as falls to the lot of few men, and
Mrs. Lefroy and my family will have but one feel-
ing with myself in severing our connection with
Islands that have become dear to us, with a Clergy
and People with whom our intercourse has been one
of mutual regard and unbroken social harmony.
May blessing continue to attend them, and the
ominous sounds now swelling from so many quarters
leave unbroken the security and peace which have
been their heritage for two or three centuries.

From our special Sporting Correspondent.
The last meet of the season was on Tuesday 1st
May-Front Street, Hamilton, presenting quite an
animated appearance as the Hunt, by twos and
threes, arrived in front of the Yacht Club, which
was the rendezvous.
I Ten minutes law and we jogged off to the head
of the Harbour, a large field, including some ladies,
taking advantage of a fine day to see the last Hunt
i of the season.
Jumping a small stone wall out of the road and
over the grass for a sbort distance, the scent, turn-
ing to the right, carried us over a couple of small
rails, then over a wall, which proved a stumbling
block to three or four, and we headed for the South
shore.
Three pair of heels (two at least of which were
shod with iron) on the landing side of the next
fence made a man look "nowhere," though it is
said that as he rose he gasped "ubique." Now the
pace was checked a bit; we crossed a road, and
climbing up a steep and rugged hill got a good gallop
along some grass, over some small stone walls and
into a bit of country that required some doing. A
big and stiff bit rof timber was now negotiated;
luckily for some, there was a way round, which
was taken advantage of by a few, but a little fur-
ther ahead two more stiff posts and rails appeared,
at one of which some grief was seen, for at it a
flighty fairy" fell.
Now along the shore close by a little creek we
saw the paper lying. Don't foul'er cried a soldier
bold, as his mare, rising at a wall, was cannoned
against. Forrard on, forrard; a Royal Welshman
leads the way, the Master in the van, two South
Devonians racing side by side; sand and spray,
civilians, soldiers, sailors mingled in a cloud.
Over the Sand Hills and far away, along the
coast, what crossed the line but a bullfinch, big,
and blind as blind could be: it was a case of both
arms up as we charged the thorny fence.
Now over the South road across a valley and
some small walls and we came upon a wire fence
right in the line, "Ware wire" shouted the Master,
and we made a considerable detour to get on the
scent again. T'is said that one essayed to jump
it, taking his coat off and hanging it on the top
wire, his horse r hoewer did not seem to see it, or
rather probably did see it but didn't like the
i look of it.
A ring round, twice in and out of a road, through
a wood, along some nice galloping ground, brings
us close to the finish; two fences more and we
shall be in the finish field, still, for many this was
not to be just yet, for at a big stone wall which now
faced us, it was a regular case of Heels up, heads
down-What! is Bomba down ? No it cannot be,
yet struggling on the ground we see the gallant
Chesnut roll, three other hunters men and all make
a melee fit for any fighting men; a fifth now
swells the surging mass. Quo fas et gloria duc-
unt." Men of science now looked on and said that
heaps of living flesh began to heave and swell,
and as the horses one by one got up, and men felt
down their battered limbs, then regained their

seats, the heap was scattered to the winds (repre-
sented on this occasion by a pleasant mount close
by). A rail followed the fatal wall, and then three
pretty jumps on the grass gave the ladies an op-
portunity of seeing some fencing before the good
things Mr. Harvey, had provided for all, were at-
tacked.
I have often thought how sad it would be if the
pretty smiling faces at these pleasant reunions,
when all is joy and jollity, were made to quail,
grow sad and pale at sight of broken bones. But
no, that must never be.

bones-Ruby, Ruby, won't you jump till Bomba
comes ?-Paget, true and faithful to the last knows
how to take a post and rail, but that seventeen
hands horse" jumps sticky as of yore. The Fairy
Queen flies o'er (or through) timber stiff, and
Dandy pulls and yaws in vain-Old Dolly (how
she led the field and jumped that four foot rail,)
has gone, they say to get a wooden leg, and Skin-
ner's sold his mount for twelve pound ten.-Meg
Merrylegs has got new feet and legs. A dark eyed
mare, of gipsy strain has had enough to carry, and
says she's glad the season done. Bombadier's to
Europe bound for change of air. A silly camel
doesn't care, he says its all the same to him. A
Welshman says he's got a nag," look out. The
Doctor's sure the grey will jump The runners
say good bye, but they would like another finish at
Mount Pleasant. The farmers say "Tomatoes ride
through them if you will, they don't pay us for
the boxes in New York." The paper baskets in the
Barracks say they cannot bear the strain. The
little birds say don't stop yet we want the paper
for our nests." The ladies say Oh dear! Oh dear!
The soldiers know they'll miss the chase-and yet
the season's done.

ally awarded verdict of every vocalist and musi-

WEBER, of New York, for sympathetic, fine and
rich tone combined with greatest power as shown

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-
l)wing method of graduating the action of the plas-
ter according to the will or condition of the patient
viz., to put one, two, or three leaves of wet blot-
ting paper between the Sinapism and the skin.
An old piece of fine linen may also be employed
instead of blotting paper.

tfHIS WATER is of an entirely vegetable

Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. IIOLTZ'S Hair Dye has not the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to-the hair an unnatural vulgarly color.
Guided by his medical knowledge and his
great chemical experiences, DR. 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.

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Hamilton, Tuesday, May

1877.


THE BERMUDA CHURCH SOCIETY.
The first annual general Meeting of this Society was
held in the Couit House, Hamilton, on Thursday lasi
May 3rd. There was a fair representation of ladies
and of the leading merchants and gentlemen of Ham-
ilton and the neighborhood; but we were sorry not tc
find present on this occasion a larger number of mem-
bers of the Church of all classes and from all the
Parishes in the Islands. And the more so, as there
was given by the several gentlemen who spoke upon
the Resolutions much valuable and interesting infor-
mation, tending to show the pressing necessity which
exists for some such organization, and to remove the
objections which are felt by some members of the com-
munity against the particular objects and Constitu-
tion of the Bermuda Church Society. It seems tc
have been thought by many that this was a Meeting
of the Committee only, and that the public were not
expected to attend.
The Meeting was called to order by the Hon. JOHN
HARVEY DARRELL, C. M. G., who had kindly ac-
ceded to the general request that he would take the
Chair. After prayer by Rev. MR. JAMES, the EIector
of the Parish, the Secretary was called upon to read the
Report, which recapitulated the history of this move-
ment,. and gave a summary of the proceedings of the
Society since its inauguration.
From the Report we gather that at present there are
230 members of the Society who have paid the first an-
nual subscription ;-the total amount paid in to the
Treasurer's hands from special donations and yearly
contributions of members is 710. Of this amount
the sum of 600 was in December last invested by the
Treasurer by direction of the Committee in Bermuda
debentures at 3J per cent per annum.
Small, and inadequate as these numbers may seem,
they are perhaps as favorable on the whole as might
have been expected at so early a stage in the course ot
a movement so new to Bermuda, and so entirely unex-
pected by the majority of Lhe members of the Church
here.
Many as yet are unable to realize the need there is
for the fund contemplated by the Bermuda Church So-
ciety, and the vast relief which will be afforded to mem-
bers of the Church generally, if, when the public grant
ceases, we have some permanent endowment to take
its place. Many forget the precarious nature of salaries
dependent upon mere voluntary annual contributions,
and the heavy burden which will fall upon the laity ii
they have to furnish at once from their own private re-
sources and without any external assistance the whole
income hitherto paid to the Rectors. It would be well
to be wise in time, and whilst this heavy demand is not
made upon Churchmen by reason of the grant, for the
present, from the Public Treasury, to make provision
for the future by forwarding the Endowment Fund.
After the reading of the Report the following Reso-
lutions were ably and warmly proposed and supported,
and unanimously adopted by tho meeting :
I. Proposed by Hon. J. H. TRIMINGHAM, seconded
by Hon. JAMES TUCKER. That the Report which has
now been read be adopted and printed.
II. Proposed by Hon. JOHN HARVEY DARRELL,
C.M.G., seconded by Rev. MARK JAMES. That this
meeting gratefully acknowledges the liberal assistance
rendered to the Bermuda Church Society in its infancy
by His Excellency the Governor and Mrs. Lefroy, the
Lord Bishop of Newfoundland, and Dr. Grant, late
Principal Medical Officer, and requests that this Reso-
lution may be communicated to each of the above bene-
factors of the Society.
III. Proposed by Rev. W. J. WooD, seconded by
T. D. MIDDLETON. Esqr. That the thanl-s of this
meeting b'- tendered to the Officers and Committee of
the Society for their services from its organization to
the present time ; and that they be requested to con-
tinue in Office until Easter 1878.
IV. Proposed by the ATTORNEY GENERAL, second-
ed by Rev. J. L. LOUGH. That the Report when
printed be forwarded to Bermudians and others resident
abroad known to be well affected to our Island Church,
in order that an opportunity may be afforded them of
aiding us in our efforts to meet the changes which
there is reason to believe await the Church in Bermuda.
V. Proposed by Hon. E. HARVEY, seconded by W.
S. BARR, Esqr. That the thanks of the meeting be
offered to the Hon. John H. Darrell for his kindness
in presiding on this occasion.
We cannot close this account of the meeting without
an endeavour to impress upon the attention of our read-
ers the earnest appeal which is made to the members of
the Church of England in Bermuda towards the end of
the Committee's Report.
Let all, young and old, rich and poor, parents and
children look the fact now forced on their attention
fairly in the face, and remember that for the future it
depends on their individual efforts, under GOD, to sus-
tain in efficiency the Fabric in which they were baptized
and have worshipped, the Graveyards in which their
ancestors lie buried, and which are to be their own and
their children's last resting place on earth, the rites and
offices and Liturgy of the Church endeared to them by
so many holy associations. There is no one so poor or
so helpless, and there are few so young as not to be
able to do something. Happy they of whom it shall be
said at last They have done what they could.' "

THE "SNAKE" mentioned in the Gazette of 24th
ultimo as having been captured at St. Davids Island
proves to be a fish closely resembling the "lMarays" so
common in Bermuda. We are informed that fishes of
this description are occasionally taken by the fishermen
in deep water, and are known by the name of" Sand
Eels.' This specimen, which measures fifty-three
inches in length was captured by the Revo Mr. Brown,
the Rev. Dr. Heustis, Mr. Wolf and Captain Taylor.
The specimens is about seven inches in circumference,
and is of a bright yellow color with numerous large
brown spots like those of a leopard. In general ap-
pearance it resembles a Maray but differs in having pec-
toral fins and in the fact that the fins upon the back
and belly do not meet at the tip of the tail, as in the
Marays: the end of the tail is thus left finless and
resembles that of a snake. The specimen was exam-
ined by Mr. Goode of the United States Fish Com-
mission who informs us that its proper name is Ophich-
thys triserialis (Raup) Gunther. Other specimens of
the same species have been captured in Brazil, in the
Caribbean Sea and in the Pacific Ocean. The following
is his description, "according to Gunther" :
"Extremity of the tail free: teeth on the vomer as


well as the jaws. A series of large (irregulal) trans-
versley oval brown spots along the back, alternating
with another series of similar round spots running
along each side of the body; abdomen sometimes with
one or two series of smaller brown spots. Head with
small black spots; an irregular black band across the
occipital region. Dorsal fin with a black margin,
and fin with (irregular) black submarginal spots.
Head with numerous longitudinal rugas. The length
of the head is two-fifths or one-third of the distance
from the gill opening to the vent. Cleft of the mouth
wide, more than one-third of the length of the head.
Eye of moderate size, its diameter being contained
once and two-thirds in the length of the snout. Teeth
pointed, fixed, all biserial except those of the vomer
which are uniserial. Pectoral fin two-sevenths of the
length of head ; dorsal fin commencing above the ter-
minal portion of the pectoral. Tail rather longer than
body."

Major Sir Rose L. Price, of the Royal Marines.
has made a statement in his book, '" The Two Ame-
ricas," which affects not alone the honor of the na-
val service, but also the relations of this country
with a foreign State. He asserts that owing to the
heavy impost placed upon all silver leaving Mexico
the people having dollars or bars which they
wish shipped, smuggle them on board our men-of-
war, which seems to cruise in Mexican waters for
no other purpose than that of aiding and abetting
the subjects and residents of the country to break
her laws." The gravity of this accusation is very
great, and it is increased by the fact that Sir Rose
Price was a guest on board one of Her Majesty's
ships, and may therefore be supposed to have ob-
tained the information from personal observation.
The statement has no doubt been made in perfect
good faith, but it is one deserving of inquiry -
Orders have been issued for Cavalry ,regiments
first for foreign service-viz., the 1st, 4th, 5th and
6th Dragoon Guards, 1st, 2nd and 6th Dragoons,
8th Hussars, and 17th Lancers-to make inspec-
tions of the whole of their saddlery and equipment,
all articles unfit for field service being ordered to be
at once returned to store.

CELEBRATION OF THE 29Tn ANNIVERSARY
OF THE GRAND UNITED ORDER OF ODD-
FELLOWS IN BERMUDA.
Friday last being the day appointed for the celebra-
tion of the above named anniversary, the members of
the different Lodges throughout the Island, began to
assemble at the Odd-Fellows' Hall, in this Town, at
an early hour. There was also a large gathering of
persons from various parts of the country, it being
early in May and a few smart showers of rain having
fallen a few days previously, laid the dust on the
streets and freshened all nature; hence from ":early
morn till dewy eve" the weather was delightful.
About a quarter after eleven the Procession was
formed and moved off to the Parish Church in the
following order :-

f On arrival at the Church the procession halted and
entered in reversed order, where they were received
by the Choir (Paget and Warwick), who poured forth
their melodious strains on a beautiful and appropriate.
Anthem.
After the members were seated the Church was soon
filled by an appreciative, audience. Divine Service
was performed by the Rev. Mark James, Rector of
Pembroke and Devonshire, who preached an excellent
sermon from Prov. chap. 4, verse 23.
The procession afterwards proceeded through Queen
Sand Front Streets to the B. M. E. Place of Worship,
when the Chairman, P. G. M. Thomas J. Butterfield,
opened the meeting with a few well timed remarks.
Suitable addresses were delivered, after which the pro-
cession proceeded to their Hall and gave three hearty
cheers for the successful carrying out of the day's
proceedings.
The members afterwards sat down to a most sump-
tuous repast, prepared by Mrs. Barnes, and served in
excellent style. After ample justice had been done
to the dejeuner and the cloth removed, P. G. M. But-
terfield resigned the chair in favor of P. G. M. Joseph
II. Thomas, the senior member of the Lodge.
The Chairman proposed The health of the Queen,"
which was ably responded to-music by the united
Bands, Alexandrina and Mozart's Favorites, "God
Save the Queen."
Prince and Princess of Wales"-music, British
Grenadiers."
Major General Lefroy and Family, may they have
a speedy and safe passage home." This toast served
as a text for many a warmhearted speech, and was
drunk with acclamation.
Admiral Sir Aetley Cooper Key"-music, Rule
Britannia."
"The Army and Navy"-" Rule Britannia."
The Clergy of Bermuda, especially Revd. Mark
James,"-" Old Hundred."
Members of H. M. Council."
"The Committee of Management, Leeds, England,
and Sub-Committee of Management, America"-
music, "Conquering Hero."
The Choir"-music, Here's a health to all Good
Lasses."
These exercises brought to a close a very pleasant
meeting, and it is hoped that the oil of merriment so
freely usedgmay cause the wheels of the Order to run
more easily.
The members of the Order will be ever grateful to
the Merchants and other Gentlemen of this Town for
the liberal assistance offered for the carrying out of
the day's proceedings.

THE Rxv. OcTAvIus PERINCHIEF.-The Rev. Oc-
tavius Perinchief, who died at Bridgeport, Pa., on
Sunday the 29th of April, was born in the island of
Bermuda in 1829, his family having emigrated
thither from England in the seventeenth century.
He came to this city at the age of fourteen, and ob-
tained a clerkship in a wholesale establishment in
Pearl 'street. After earning a little money he en-
tered Trinity College, Hartford, where he endured
many privations to complete his education for the
ministry. He was graduated there in 1854, and
afterward studied at the Episcopal Theological
Seminary in this city. His first parish was the
Church of the Messiah, Brooklyn. After two years
labor there he went to Wisconsin and thence to
Kansas as a missionary. (All this time he endured
great suffering, bodily and mentally, having over-
taxed his brain by study. His second regular
parish was in Cumberland, Md, and be was also
engaged as a missionary at Mount Savage among
the coal laborers in the mines of that region. In
1867 he was called to St. John's Church, George-
town, D. C., where he became eminent as a preacher,
and declined various calls to more lucrative pos-
itions. His health; again giving way he was
compelled to relinquish his parochial duties, and
became secretary of the Evangelical Educational
Society of Philadelphia, which obliged him to travel
considerably. Instead of benefitting his health he
found his new duties too arduous, and was induced
to accept the rectorship of the Memorial Church,
Baltimore, where be remained for two years. A se-
lection of his sermons preached in Georgetown and
at the Memorial Church were embodied in two in-
teresting volumes. From Baltimore he went to
Bridgeport, Pennsylvania, where be had charge of
the old Swedes' Church. Regaining his health, his
first desire was to do more work, and thence he
went to York, Pa., where he took charge of a parish
with a church school for young ladies. This was
again too much for his frail constitution, and he
accepted a call to Mount Holly, New Jersey. After
remaining there two years he was again compelled
to seek relief, and returned to Bridgeport at the ur-
gent call of that people, among whom he declared
that he would remain till his death.-New York
Evening Post, April 30.

The words of Admiral Sir Alexander Milne, in
returning thanks for the Navy at the annual dinner
of the Institutions of Civil Engineers, ought to
bring comfort even to the most confirmed grumbler


against the management of the Navy. The gallant
Admiral alluded to the successful efforts of Mr.
Hunt to improve and increase the Fleet of England
and remarked there never was a period when we
had a more efficient or able body of officers and
of seamen than at present, and he attributed the
satisfactory state of things as regarded the charac-
ter of our sailors to the system which had been
pursued of training them up from boyhood. The
British Fleet was admirable and efficient in every
way, and, whenever it might be called on to act,
would prove that it was worthy of the country.
From so competent an authority as Sir Alexander
Milne such a statement is eminently satisfactory.


Late from the United States and
Europ e.
The Mail Steamer Bermuda, Captain Angrove'
arrived at her wharf on Sunday last at 14 p.m-
She left New York at 3 p.m of Thursday, May 3.
We are indebted to Captain Angrove, Mr. Pur-
ser Miles. Mr. Rule, First Officer, and Mr. Richie,
Chief Engineer, for files of papers to the afternoon
of the 3rd May.
Gold at New York at 12 m. 3rd, 107.
Green Backs $93-56.
Shares Delaware and Hudson Canal 46--464.
An advance in the Bank of England rate to 3
per cent has taken place.
The British Government is said to be evidently
uneasy on account of the military operations of
Pussia in Asiatic Turkey both because the estab-
lishment of Russian power in Asia Minor would
threaten the Suez Canal and endanger British con-
trol in India. Should England, because of the
threatened attitude of Russia in Asia Minor, be
drawn into the war, a 6 or even 8 per cent money
market in London, and all that that implies con-
cerning the market for securies, may be expected.
Colonel Baker, was to leave England on the 18th
instant, with two hundred British Officers to join
the Turkish army.
The Union Bank Company of Philadelphia has
gone into liquidation. Liabilities not clearly as-
certained.
Letters from Cincinnatti of the 3rd instant report
heavy frosts and great damage to fruits in the cen-
tral and southern parts of that State.
It is stated that the Stevens battery (American)
has been purchased by the Russian Government for
a million of dollars.
The Novelty Works building on St. Urbain
Street, Montreal, was destroyed by fire on the
morning of the 25th April. It was a five story build-
ing, and badly built. The walls fell out and
buried 13 firemen. These men remained under the
ruins about an hour. Four were taken out alive
but suffering dreadfully. Nine were dead.
There seems to be little doubt that should Eng-
land be embroiled in a war with Russia there
will be a large number of Russo-American armed
ships at sea to prey on the Mercantile Navy of the
former Country.
It is deemed necessary that England should have
as many as possible of her best ships available
in case of emergency.
There were 89 deaths by smallpox in London
during the week ending the 28th ultimo.
The Russian fleet was still in the Harbour of New
York.
The Legislature of Newfoundland was to have
been proroited last Thursday.
Two troopers with soldiers on board for Cuba had
left Spain.

THE WAR IN EUROPE.
A despatch from Vienna giving an account of the
fighting before Kars says that the centre of the
Russian army, forty thousand strong, under Gen-
eral Melikoff, attacked Mukhtar Pasha five miles
from Kars on Sunday, the 29th ult. The Turks
fought desperately, but the Russians, supported by
powerful artillery, succeeded in dislodging then
from their positions. Mukhtar Pasha called out
all his reserves, and attempted on Monday to re-
cover the lost ground with sixty thousand men, but
was defeated and driven back under the guns of
Kars. The Russian losses were considerable, and
those of the Turks were enormous.
The'Fourth Turkish Army Corps, stationed in
Asia Minor, under the command of Mukhtar Pasha,
has its headquarters at Erzeroum which is garrison-
ed by 22,000 men. At Kars there were at last re-
ports a few days ago 28,000, at Ardahau 12,000,
and at Baskkoy 4,000, while 7,000 are distributed
between Alashkirt and Karakilisa, 6,000 among
the Passin villages, and Bayazid is occupied by
4,000 men. This estimate does not comprise the
Cireassians, Kurds and the militia which have been
called out. If all the Circassians obey the summons
of the Porte they will furnish a contingent of more
than 15,000 men. The Kurds do not number above
4,000, all cavalry. The militia should furnish
about 25.000 men.
The Russians have stopped the manufacture of
gas at all their Black Sea ports, fearing conflagra-
tions in the event of bombardment. No important
changes have occurred in the military situation on
the Danube. The Russian advance guard and
Turkish gunboats have been within easy range
without firing, and there is the singular anomaly
of two hostile forces apparently unwilling to assume
responsibility for beginning the fray.
The Russians have a number of iron-clad batter-
ies drawing but a few feet of water at the mouth of
the Dniester, which they hope to safely convoy to
the Kilia mouth of the Danube and over the bar to
the town of Kilia. River engagements may there-
fore be expected.
A deputy in the Hungarian Diet yesterday point-
edly interrogated the government as to what meas-
ures it had taken to resist Russian aggression. He
said that Russia had invaded the neutral territory
of Roumania, which had been guaranteed by Eu-
rope, practically stopping the freedom of trade on
the Danube, and that the enormous army that Rus-
sia had placed in the field made it impossible to
see the limits of her aims. The deputy was sup-
ported by all parties in the Diet.
Servia has obtained a loan of $2,200,000 from a
French bank.
The English conservatives will meet Mr. Glad-


stone's resolutions on the Eastern question by a di-
rect vote of confidence in the government. The
late liberal Cabinet met recently at Lord Gran-
ville's residence and decided that they would not
support the resolutions.
The British Foreign Office publishes a despatch
from Mr. Layard, the British Minister at Constan-
tinople, announcing that the Turkish Commander
on the Danube has been empowered by the Porte
to close the river to all navigation, to detain on
requisition neutral vessels subject to indemnifica-
tion, or order them to repair to or leave certain
ports under penalty of total confiscation, or adopt
any measures rendered necessary by military ex-
igencies.
It is noticed as a significant omission that the
sentence "We are firmly purposed and determined
to abstain from taking any part, directly or indi-
rectly, in the war now unhappily existing between
those sovereigns, and to maintain peaceful and
friendly intercourse with each of them," which was
inserted in the British proclamation of neutrality
in the Franco Prussian war, does not appear in the
proclamation which was published a few days ago.

England Alone to Answer Russia.-In the House
of Lords on the 1st May Lord Derby, in reply to a
question by Earl Granville, said the government
had prepared to answer to the Russian circular,
which was approved by Her Majesty the Queen.
It was out sent last night, and will be laid before
the House as soon as delivered to Russia.
English Preparations.-The Admiralty have made
inquiry of the authorities of Chatham Dockyard as
to the earliest date when the iron-clad Temeraire,
of eight guns, 8,412 tons and 7,000 horse power,
and the iron corvette Euryalus, of sixteen guns, 3,.
932 tons and 5,250 horse power, can be ready for
sea. According to instructions from the War Of-
fice the service companies of the Royal Engineers
at the School of Military Engineering here are be-
ing made up to their war strength. The ironclads
Alexandra, Monarch, Swiftsure, Devastation and
Hotspur, of the British Mediterranean squadron,


arrived at Corfu yesterday. Recruiting has been
progressing so briskly lately that nearly every reg-
iment in the service is full.
The military artificers at Woolwich arsenal were
excused yesterday from monthly muster and parade
because of the importance of the work in which
they were engaged--viz., the repair and preparation
of the wagons and ambulances constituting a field
train. Seven twelve-ton naval guns have been
shipped to Portsmouth, and 400 tons of ammunition
and arms are being shipped for Malta.
The Twenty-ninth regiment, stationed at Chat-
ham, has been ordered to be made up to its war
strength of 900 men. The despatch boat Salamis
has been ordered to leave Chatham for the Mediter-
ranean on Friday to take supernumeries and act as
extra despatch vessel to the Mediterranean squad-
ron. The corvette Spartan has taken a quantity of
small arms from the Tower to Malta. The Hecla
is now embarking with shot, shell and barracks-
stores for Malta. The Cadiz will shortly embark
300 tons of land service guns and iron shields for
the fortifications at Gibraltar.
Hiding her Band.-A note in an official form on
English military preparations is published this
morning. It says :-The slightly increased activity
in our dockyards and arsenals has attracted some
notice, and exaggerated rumours are beginning to
spread. As a fact, some orders have been given
which might encourage the belief that England is
preparing to actively participate in the war, but the
government's intentions to maintain neutrality are
already known, and the so-called preparations are
no more than indications of our intention to ensure
a state of preparation for any possible contingency.
The country would learn, with satisfaction, tha,
troops had been detailed on paper for embarkationt
every arrangement made for their speedy transport
and other measures taken, so that should the neces-
sity arise every man would be in the right place at
a moment's notice.

AT HIS OLD GAME.-The following is an account
of how Hobart Pacha ran the blockade at Galats
in his steamer Ret hymo :-The Admiral left Rust-
chuk at night. On arriving at Galats, which was
guarded by torpedoes and heavy batteries com-
manding the river, the lights on the steamer had
been extinguished, but a rocket from the Romani-
an shore showed that Hobart Pacba's approach
was discovered and apprised the Muscovite gun-
ners. On his coming abreast of the batteries the
heavy guns began to fire, but the Rethymo was
run so close in shore that the gunners were unable
to depress their pieces fast enough to get good
aim. The Admiral only fired one shot, and the
Rethymo passed to the Black Sea safely.
WASHINGTON, May 1.-Admiral Hobart Pacha'
of the Turkish navy, whose exploit in running by
the Russian batteries at Galatz is told in to-day's
cable despatches, is well known in Washington.
He was one of the most successful and most
annoying of the blockade runners of our civil war,
in which he was employed by the formerly wealthy
but recently bankrupt London firm of Alexander
Collie & Co. t
CAREER OF THE ADMIRAL.-Admiral Hobar.
was a captain in the British navy, and took ade
vantage of a leave of absence granted him by thb
English government to go into the blockade run
ning business for Collie & Co. When this matter
came to the knowledge of the Lords of the Admiral-
ty he was suspended from his rank in the Britsh
navy. Thereupon he entered the Turkish service,
and besides being invested with the rank of ad-
miral, was made a Pacha by ap imperial firman.
He next became conspicuous in cheeking the re-
bellion in Crete, where his knowledge of the block-
ade running business was of great service to him
in preventing the Greeks from furnishing supplies
of arms and ammunition to the insurgents. By a
subsequent decree in council of the Lords of the
Admiralty he has been restored to his rank and
number in the British navy.
Servia Preparing.-Servia has concluded a loan
of 12,000,000 francs with the French Union Com-
merce Bank. Recruits are still arriving at Belgrade
and the formation of a volunteer corps to accom-
pany the Russians is spoken about. The Archduke
Albrecht will extend his tour of military inspection
to Dalmatia.
Now Let the United States Protect Them.-Lord
Loftus, the British Minister at St. Petersburg, yes-
terday notified the Russian government that in
consequence of its intention to expel Russians from
Turkey, the Porte had abandoned the idea of plac-
ing Turkish subjects remaining under British pro-
teetion. The Russian government, which had al-
ready accepted British protection for the Turks, re-
plied that the Turks would nevertheless continue to
receive the protection of the laws. The Czar left
Kischeneff for Bender at eleven o'clock Tuesday
night.
THE POLICY or FRANCE.-The French Chambers
reassembled at Versailles yesterday. In the Cham-
ber of Deputies the Duke Decazes, laying the yel-
low book on the table, said the present complica-
tions found France free from any engagement.
Never during the last seven years had her relations
with foreign States been better. The language of
neighboring Powers left no doubt of their pacific
sentiments. In the Eastern question the most ab-
solute neutrality guaranteed by the most scrupu-
lous abstention will remain the basis of France's
policy.
M. Leblond gave notice that he should submit an
interpellation as to what measures the government
proposed to take to repress ultramontane intrigues.

R. B. Y. C. CRUISING RACE,
The second Cruising Race under the auspices of
the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club took place on Fri-
day last. The course selected was as follows:
Start opposite the Club Steps, through the Head of
the Lane, round Ireland and Boaz Islands leaving
them on the Port hand, and returning through
Timlin's Narrows to the Stake Boat. The time al-
lowance was that allowed by the R. B. Y. C. Rules
proportioned to the length of course, which was
supposed to be 15 miles on this occasion. The in-
terest in the Cruising Races appears to have kept
up and there were ten entries out of which number
eight started. The wind was from about South
West and not too strong to prevent the small boats
from having a good chance. The Irene belonging
to Messrs. Wilson and Steevens, Commissariat De-
partment, was the first boat to start and managed
to win a very close and exciting race passing the
winning stake boat only forty-five seconds before
the Nautilus which had beaten all the other compe-
titors. The following Table will enable our read-
ers to get a good idea of the relative performances
of the competing yachts.
There was thus only about fourteen minutes bet-
ween the first seven boats, shewing that the handi-
cap was an excellent one. The next will be a race-
to be steered by Ladies only on 18th May.

TIHE FIRST WAR BETWEEN RUSSIA AND
THE PORTE.
It is exactly two hundred years ago (1677) that
Russia declared war for the first time with the
Ottoman Porte, and there has not been much peace
between them since. Turkey had made war on
Poland, and Alexis being bound by treaty to aid
the latter Power, gave her his support. The tor-
rent of Mohammedanism had roled on compara-
tively unchecked, and the Region know as Little
Russia-that is the northern shore of the Black
Sea, Crimea, the Cossack district, away up towards
the north-west to the frontier of Poland, came un-
der its dominion. Sultan Mamet I V. had subdued
the Poles, and laid them under tribute. He then
insisted that the Czar should evacuate his several'
possessions in the Ukraine in a document describ-
ing himself as "Most Glorious Majesty King of
the World." The Czar made answer that ,' He
was above submitting to a Mahometan dog," but
that his sabre was as good as the scimitar of the
Grand Seignor. Russia appealed to the crowned
heads of Europe for help in establishing a league,
but Rome had its jealousies then as now, and the
Powers were in mutual conflict and confusion. In
consequence of this and the persistent attacks of
the Porte, Russia declared war single-handed.
Four years of war followed. Russia acquired the
disputed ground, and gave the Ottoman Power
the first blow towards thbe inevitable ruin of the
kingdom.

VACCINATION.-The Swiss School of Medicine are
known to be peculiarly open to the tolerant consi-
deration of new views. The medical faculty of
Zurich University were, if we mistake not, the
very first in Europe which had the generosity and
courage to grant the M.D. diploma tolady students.
The strife concerning the utility of compulsory vac-
cination which has raised so muoh dust in medical
circles, and in which the interested lay world has
very naturally taken sides, wisely or un-
wisely, led some time ago to a general consultation
of all legitimate Swiss physicians" upon this de-
bated point. A committee was appointed at the
end of last year to draw up a set of questions, issue
thim to all the members of the medical profession,
and receive their answers. No less than 1,376 vo-
ting cards were sent out. Each card was divided
into three columns, headed respectively, Yes,"
No," and "Undecided." At the beginning of this&
month 1,168 cards had been returned, each contain-
ing the specific suffrage of a qualified practitioner
upon each of the questions, accompanied in some
cases with a good deal of explanatory comment.
The questions which, after much debate, were re-
duced to five in number, were put in the following
form:-I. Does your experience incline you to the
view that a thoroughly successful vaccination pro-
tects the subject against small-pox, or at least
against the severer forms of it, for a long series of
years ? To this question 1,122 doctors replied
"yes," 22 "no," while 24 were undecided."
II. Would you recommend the vaccination of
healthy children ? Answers-1,128 "yes;" 25
"no;" 15 undecided." III. Would you recom-
mend re-vaccination ? Answers-1,083 "yes;"
60 no: 25 "undecided." IV. Do you consider
that inoculation with retro-vaccinated cow-lymph
offers such advantages that its use should be uni-
versally striven for ? To this only 771 reply "yes,"
the noess" rise to 213; 184 are "undecided."
V. Are you an advocate for the maintenance of the
present compulsory vaccination? 1,010 reply
"yes;" 133 "no;" and 25 are "undecided."
Some of the answers are merely accompanied by
pithy marginalia, others take the form of longer or
shorter essays upon the whole question.

The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle prints a letter from
ex-Gov. Joseph E. Brown, of that State, in which
be expresses at length his views concerning the
proper course of the Southern Democrats in the
present aspect of affairs. His sentiments may be
understood from the following extract from the
letter: We may, however, be asked by Northern
men, how is conciliation to take place if the tSouth
is still to stand firm and solid and will meet no
advance made to her by the Administration ? To
this I reply: The South is not in the market.
We cannot be purchased by patronage. But if
the purpose of the President is to restore peace
and harmony to the country, and to divide the
South by lines other than the color line, there is
an easy and patriotic mode of doing it. Let him
acd his party offer us no bribe of office; and let
them, in the administration of the Government do
equal and exact justice to every State and to every
section of the Union; let them bury the war issue,
and let there be no further allusion to it. In a
word, let the Republican party cease to flaunt the
bloody shirt in our face, and let them, as pledged, we
having complied with the Reconstruction acts,
concede the same right to local self-government
to Louisiana and South Carolina which is con-
ceded to New York and Ohio; and let all efforts
to keep up division, on account of past connection
with the war, cease; and the result will naturally
be, that new issues will spring up; tariffs and
banks and the Internal Revenue system, internal
improvements, &c., will then occupy the attention
of the people Upon these, men of both colors and
both parties, South and North, will naturally
differ, and they will divide upon them. In this
mode and this alone can the South be divided by
lines other than substantially the color line. So
long, however, as the Republican Party labors to
keep the war issues alive, and to divide the peo-
ple and inflame their prejudices, on account of the
war, we will maintain a solid Democratic South.


no matter what efforts may be made to buy, to
bully, or to bribe us.":'

LIVERPOOL, Thursday, May 10 1877.-The Posts
London correspondent says: *" When Mr. Cross
boasted on Monday of the entire unity of the Cab-
inet he was indulging in a flight of imagination.
The truth is, nominal unity was only restored on
Saturday, and this result was obtained after an an-
gry discussion in the Cabinet and by thethreatened
resignation of four of its members. Earl Beacons-
field was in favor of a violent and sensational
policy. The British fleet bad been ordered to ren-
dezvous at Corfu with sealed instructions to tail for
the Bosphorus, and there was every probability that
an armed demonstration in favor of the Turks
would be made. Mr. Gladstone's resolutions, or
rather the expression of public feeling they invoked,
put matters in an entirely different position, and
when the Cabinet met on Saturday several mem-
bers declared they would not at present sanction an
armed demonstration on the Bosphorus. The four
members to whom the country owe the final decis-
ion of the Government in favor of neutrality are
Lord Salisbury, Sir Stafford Northcote, Lord Car-
narvon and Mr. Cross. They declared they would
not support a warlike policy, and as their retire.
ment would break up the Government, the Prime
Minister and his warlike colleagues were compelled
to submit. Thus a sort of unity has b3en patched
up for the present and the Government, meantime,
is committed to a policy of neutrality. It should
not, however, be forgotten that this policy is pro-
visional, and that the whole Cabinet recognize that
intervention may become necessary.

HOUSE OF COMMONS, MAY 10.
Mr. Sullivan withdrew the questions which he
gave notice on Tuesday he should ask on Monday
next relative to the intimation of Mr. Cross, the
Home Secretary, that England would defend Egypt
from interference or attack. The Hon. Robert
Bourke, Under Secretary for the Foreign Depart-
ment, in reply to a question by Mr. Jenkins, said
no steps have been taken to send a naval force toW
the Danube. Such a step would lead to much mis-
interpretation, and possibly serious results. He
said he had no information about the state of the
Black Sea blockade, and no representations had
been made about its insufficiency. In reply tc a
question by Mr. Wait, he said England bad asked
the Porte for a further extention of time for the en-
try to and clearance of vessels from blockaded ports.
The Eastern debate was then resumed.
Mr. Courtney (Advanced Liberal, Liskeard) ad.
vocated the dismemberment of Turkey by force of
arms and an alliance with Russia for that purpose.
The Conservatives cried ,'No," and the Liberals
cheered.
Mr. Forster (Liberal) said be was happy to think
that it would not be so easy to drift into war at
the close of the present debate as it might have
been previously. It could not embarrass the Gov-
ernment to pass the present resolutions, as the Gov-
ernment had already made declarations of similar
purport.
Mr. Foster's speech was a criticism of Earl Derby's
reply to Prince Gortchakoff. He said some of the
arguments therein, though conclusive, were based
upon false assumptions. The whole tendency of
the reply was dangerous. It was a very strong
statement to say that Russia had broken the Treaty
of Paris by the step she had taken. If the Govern-
ment thought that to declare war instead of leav-
ing the question to European mediation was a
violation of that treaty, they should have told Rus-
sia so beforehand. Whether Russia was blameable
depend very much whether the European concert
by which matters were to be arranged was real.
He denied that that concert was anything more
than a sham, denied that England had the right to
prevent Russia from attacking Egypt, and scouted
the idea that Russia desired to capture Constanti-
nople. He could not have voted for the third and
fourth resolutions if Mr. Gladstone had maintained
them, but before the outbreak of the present war
would have supported a declaration in favor of
European pressure and coercion. Hie believed a
majority of the House favored neutrality as far as
is consistent with British interests, and said that
the best way to protect those interests was to be
ready to offer mediation at the first opportunity.
The Conservative speeches proceeding Mr. For-
ster's were principally characterized by a strong
anti-Russian tone.
Mr. Chaplin (Conservative) declared that Russia,
to a great extent, was responsible for the events
which occurred last year in Bulgaria, and said that
care should be taken to prevent Russia from setting
her foot in Constantinople or interfering with the
road to India, even if it was necessary to sweep the
Mediterranean to secure that object.
Sir Robert Peel (Independent), citing the case of
Poland, ridiculed the conjunction of the name of
Russia with civil or religious liberty. He hoped
the Government would not budge an inch from the
position they had taken. He did not fear war, but
hoped it would be avoided under the able manage.-
ment of the Government.
The debate was adjourned.

WASHINGTON, April 28,1877.-People willdoubt-

to, our Consul in Roumania, whose humane zeal
in behalf of the oppressed people of that country a
year or two ago made him quite conspicuous at the
time.
Mr. Peixotto resided for over five years as our re-
presentative in Roumania at the court of Prince
Charles of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, where he ac.
quired an intimate and thorough knowledge of the
Eastern question. He happens to be in Washing-
ton just now. He was waited upon by your corres-
pondent, when the facts were gleaned which appear
in the following interview:-
Perhaps few men, especially Americans, are
better qualified to speak upon the subject of the
terrible war now bursting upon the shores of the
" morning land" of the East. During his residence
in Europe Mr. Peixotto was thrown in contact with
many of the leading statesmen of Russia, Turkey,
Austria, Germany, France and England, and his
keen powers of observation enabled him to analyze

has inspired, actuated, governed and controlled the

THE RUSSO-TURKISH WAR-CO'SACKS
CROSS THE DANUBE.
LONDON. May 11.-At five o'clock yesterday
morning 300 Cossacks crossed the Danube in boats
from Galatz to Ghiacet. Immediately on landing
they encountered a numerous body of bashi-ba-
zouks. A smart engagement followed, which was
unfinished at noon. The Turkish fire killed three
and wounded eight inhabitants of Oltenitza, and a
number of the inhabitants of Ibrail were wounded.
The bashi-bazouks crossed the Danube at Kirnofji.
The Roumanian peasants, armed with guns and axes,
drove them back, killing two. Two Turkish gun-
boats bombarded Oltenitza 4 hours yesterday. The
Roumanians replied. It is reported they silenced
the gunboats and ignited Turtukai on the opposite
bank of the Danube. There was no loss in Olten-
itza. The latest advices from Oltenitza assert that
two Turkish gunboats were destroyed by the Rou-
manian fire. The Standard's Vienna correspondent
reports that the Turkish bombardment of Ibrail on
Wednesday destroyed some large granaries. The
shops are closed and the town deserted. The Rus-
sians attempted to cross the Danube at Reni, but
the Turkish artillery prevented them. D])efence
works aie to be constructed around Constantinople.
The operations of the Turkish monitors seem to be
with a view to asceiain the position and armament
of the Russian batteries on the bank of the Dan'ibe.
Hitherto, however, only a few batteries, poorly
armed with field guns, have been found to exist.
This is explained by the state of the roads, which
have prevented the transit of heavy guns. The
Turkish monitors seem to have found no trace of
torpedoes in the river. "We are not, however, ex-
actly informed whether the monitors have been
cruising along the whole Lower Danube to ascer-
tain whether torpedoes are laid down there, or
whether they have merely been watching the most
exposed points where the Russians might be ex.
pected to attempt to cross. It is therefore probable
that the Russians may have laid torpedoes between
the various stations where the monitors are now
cruising, thus preventing them from acting in con-
cert to repel an attempt to cross the Danube.
The correspondent with the Turks on the Danube
reports that the Turks are well prepared against
attack, and that the troops are enthusiastic.

In A sia Minor.-The capitulation of Kars may be
expected in a few days. Mukhtar Pacha is at Bar-
dez, sixty miles east of Erzeroum. The Russian
centre is waiting near Kars and supporting the ad-
vance of the two wings from Bajazid and Ardahan:
The Paris correspondent of the Standard says a
telegram from Odessa reports that the Russians have
been unable to force the Soughaulu Pass and are
waiting for reinforcements.
The 'Sultan to Declare a Holy War.--LoNDON,
May 9.-A Vienna special says that in a few days
the annual holy pilgrim caravan will leave Con-
stantinople for Mecca, laden with costly presents
for the Mohammedan shrines. The Shiek Ul-ilslim
gave to the leader, who has been this tirnmeappointed
by the Sultan himself, instructions to proclaim in
all the cities he passed through that Russia, who
persecutes the Christians herself for not conforming
to the orthodox faith, was now inte: t upon driving
all believers in Islamism from Europe. The Sul-
tan has, therefore, resolved to call all the faithful
to a holy war against infidel Russia, and promises
to go on a pilgrimage himself if the war proves suc-
cessful to his arms.
The Dutch Buying Russian Bonds.-LoNDON, May
9.-The Times, in its financial article, says large
amounts o! Russian bonds are going from hereto
Holland to fill the void produced there by the sale
of United States drawn bonds. The Dutch, it
seems, are selling the called bonds of the United
States Government to the Americans. and instead
of investiffg in new 4A per cents, buy Russian secu-
rities in London, the result of this operation being
that gold from America may find its way here on
Dutch account to be used in paying for their Rus-


war waged by Russia on their soil against their
sovereign lord. Five years ago they murmured
against the Sultan because of the rule of the Greek
Patriarch of Athens over their ecclesiastical dio-
ceses. Midhat Pacha's wise counsel was remem-
bered by the Porte, who forever terminated that
galling rule and gave them their own Exarcb, with
his seat at Constantinople. From that day there
have been no more bloody encounters between Bul-
garian and Greek Catholics at their ohurch doors,
so often before the scene of frightful massacre.
Gratitude has filled the heart of the Sultan's Bul-
garian subjects, and Russia will feel the conse-
quence of it now.
Cor.-You believe all Europe will be involved ?
Mr. P.-It is inevitable the moment the mask is
torn away and the veil so long before their eyes
given to the winds. I mean the Great Powers-
England, Germany, Austria, France and Italy. All
Europe hears to-day the words of Hamid as he
draws his sword;-" Exposed to hostile sugges-
tions, to unlimited suspicion, and to violations of
international law, Turkey feels she is now contend-
ing for her existence. Strong in the justice of her
cause and trusting in GoD, sh3 is determined to
ignore what has been decided without her and
against her and resolved to retain in the world the
place which Providence has destined for her."
These are ringing words even in our language; in
Turkish they will rouse the Moslem to frenzy.
Before his vision the memory of the past will rise
like a dream. We shall see the Turk of Haroun-
al-Raschid's day, the swift warrior of Saladin's
peerless hosts, and from heaven to their excited
imagination Mohammed will again descend to lead
them on to victory!
Cor.-Who of the Powers will be the first to in-
terpose ?
Mr. P.-Austria first, but hardly sooner than
England.
Cor.--And against-
Mr. P.-Against Russia.
Cor.-And Germany ?
Mr. P.-Will hang off as long as possible, but.
before midsummer be deeply in the conflict.


minds of monarchs and ministers since the fatal
battle of Sadowa in the summer of 1866, which
lost Austria her proud place in the Southern Ger-
man Confederation, and as Mr. Peixotto says, vir-
tually changed the map of Europe."
Con.-I called to ask your opinion of the
war in Europe, the meaning, rather, of Russia's
declaration of war against Turkey ?
Mr. P.-It means conquest. From the first to
the last Russia has never had but one object in
view. Since Sebastopol she has brooded over this,
until, frenzied with her own brilliant achievements
since that day, which have penetrated the Cauca-
sus, gone beyond the Caspian, conquered Kniva
and Bokhara with their silk and cotton, she now
believes the moment rife to seize the idol of her
ambition and make Constantinople the mistress of
the Eastern world.
Con.-But she disclaims all such intentions. It
is a holy war for the long suffering Christians
of Turkey for whom she draws the sword.
MR. P.-Don't be deceived. Leave sentiment to
women or fanatics. Meet the real issue honestly.
Let there be no disguise. Who has invoked the
bloody intercession of the Czar-the Sultan's sub.
jects ? No! Neither the Roumanian, Servian, Bul-
garian, nor the Bosnian, Herzegovinan-not one
of all the divers races making up the population of
the Ottoman Empire.
Con.-But these races are kindred in religion
and desire a change of masters.
Mr. P.-Only apparently in religion; in point of
fact, they regard the Czar as schismatic, and as to
preferring his rule to that ot the Sultan, believe me
that is the wildest chimera.
CoPR.-Why do you say so ?
Mr. P.-Because the sway of the Sultan over his
subjects is mild and humane compared with that o
Russia over hers.
CoR.-How do you make that out ?
Mr P.-No Christian or Jew in all Turkey is
compelled to be a soldier and fight the battles of
Sultan. In Russia every man, nay, every stripling
must be and is moulded to be, an instrument of
death, a sacrificial lamb upon the alter of unhallow-
ed lust and o'erleaping ambition.
CoR.-Are not the Roumanians with Russia in
this struggle?
Mr. P.-Beyond a few ambitious nobles, no!
The advance of the Russian hosts is the death-knell
of Roumania's hope of autonomy. The 5,000,000
people of that principality ceased to exist yesterday
ae a separate State and nationality if the banners of
the Czar are planted on the Bosphorus.
Con.-What facilities does Roumania afford ?
Mr. P.-As a base of operations for the Czar the
best. Railways and telegraphs now permeate the
country. The soil is rich and productive. Owing
to the non-demand for exportation for more than
two years the wheat and corn accumulated is very
large. If Russia could pay gold her coming would
be a god-send to the poverty stricken peasantry.
But she cannot. The circulation of her silver
has for four years been abolished by Romanian
law; but even this coin she has not got to pay
with. and her paper money will not be worth forty
cents on the dollar, if that, before the war is sixty
days old. It is simply worthless to the peasant
to-day, as the merchant will not take it.
Cor.-Where will be the scene of war ?
Mr. P.-The Balkan and Carpathian Mountains
-the two chains enclosing Bulgaria and Roumania
form a grand amphitheatre, where successive
hordes of barbarians first appeared upon the stage
of Europe to open the ever changing scenes in her
history. It was on the lower Danube that the le-
gions of Cyrus melted away like snow beneath the
arrows of the Scythians; there Alexander the'
Great fought the barbarians of the North; there
millions of men perished in the early wars of the
Christians and the Turks; and on that terrain, in
ihe oracular language of the great Napoleon, ,' the
destiny of Europe is yet to be determined."
Cor.-Will Russia have trouble crossing the
Danube ?
Mr. P.-Not half as much as anticipated by the
newspapers. I inspected last summer the fortresses
from Belgrade and'Widdin to Tultscha and Sulina.
None were formidable then, I may truly say in
May last of no account, except from their natural
position. If these have been put in a perfect state
during the winter they could be rendered impreg-
nable. But I doubt if this has been done, and
even if so there are a hundred landings for the
Russian troops; Roumania has nearly four hun-
dred miles bordering on the Danube. But if the
Muscovites effect a crossing they have yet the Bal-
kans before them, and these the Turks will and
can defend to the last man.
Cor.-You think the Turks will fight well?
Mr. P.-With desperation and confidence. Never
before were they more terribly in earnest to de-
fend their homes and firesides. It will be the most
terrible war of the century. Russia builds her
bopes upon the rising of the Bulgarians of whom
there are eight millions. But unless the Turks
suffer great reverses in the opening battles the
Bulgarians will never rise in behalf of the Rus-
sians.
Cor.-What is the general sentiment of the
Bulgarians?
Mr. P -If not hostile, certainly not favorable to
the Russians. They, like the Roumanians, are an
agricultural people, love peace, hate war; remem-
ber but too vividly the former iron tread of the
Cossack, the desolation so often spread by the fierce
and brutal invader. Never have all the reported
Turkish massacres combined for five hundred years
been equal to the horrors accumulated in any one
