RERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE,

May 15. 1877


FAREWELL ADDRESS TO HIS EXCELLEN-
CY MAJOR GENERAL J. II. LEFROY,
C. B., R. A.
At 12 o'clock on Tuesday last at the Council Chiam-
ber-the time and place named for the presentation,
of a valedictory addresQ to His Excellency theo
Governor, by the Inhabitants of Bermuda-there
was a large assemblage of Persons, comprising the
President and the several members of H. M. Coun-
cil, the Hon. J. H. Darrell, the Attorney General
and most of the leading people of the community-
the heavy rain in the morning doubtless preventing
many persons living at a distance from being
present. Soon after His Excellency and his
Aid-de-Camp, Captain Lockhart, R A., entered
the Chamber, the Honorable John Harvey Dar-
rell, C. M. G., presented His Excellency with the
following address :
To His Excellency
MAJOR GENERAL J. H. LEFROY, C.B.,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief,
&c., &c., &c.
May it please Your Excellency ;
Your term of office as Governor of these Islands
being about to expire, we cannot permit you to
leave Bermuda without expressing our deep sense
of the unwearied exertions for the public good
which have marked the whole course of your Ad-
ministration. It is not necessary to express con-
currence in all Your Excellency's views and opin-
ions. Probably it would be impossible for so active
and independent a man to hold the position of
Governor for six years without at times arriving at
conclusions for which public opinion is not ripe or
propounding plans in which, it, does not coincide,
but to Your Excellency's single minded aim for the
public good and for a general intelligent and clear-
sighted view of the ends which the Government of
these Islands should keep before it, there are few
who will not give you hearty credit. Never was
there a Governor more conscientiously devoted to
the welfare of the people under his charge, more in-
dustrious in promoting that welfare, or more anx-
ious to advance his people's material and intellec-
tual prosperity. It is with deep regret we observe
that Your Excellency's state of health is not at
present such as to admit of your accepting a more
public expression of our respect and esteem; but in
bearing this testimony to your ceaseless and intelli-
gent labors for the public good, we are but expressing
what we believe to be the almost unanimous opin-
ion of that part of the community which can with-
out prejudice weigh and appreciate the high per-
sonal, intellectual and political virtues which have
marked Your Excellency's Administration.
We trust we may be permitted to add that
Mrs. Lefroy also will carry away with her the
very high esteem of all who have enjoyed the privi-
lege of her acquaintance, and we assure you that
the best wishes of the people of these Islands will
accompany you and all your family in Your Excel-
lency's retirement or in the active duties of a dis-
tinguished position which may still lie before you.
[Signed by all the Members of H. M. Council
and most of the leading People of the Island.]
To which His Excellency was pleased to Reply:
MR. DARRELL, HON. GENTLEMEN AND GENTLEMEN :
I thank you warmly and sincerely for the expression
of your good opinion and good wishes in the parting
address vou have made to me. I shall ever prize it as
an evidence at once of the generous spirit of friends
who may have agreed sometimes to differ from me on
matters of public policy, and of earnest if not always
succe- sful endavours on my part to fulfil to the best of
my ability the trust committed to me.
There are probably few persons who can look back
to a six years' tenure of Government and find no er-
rors to acknowledge, no faults to reproach themselves
with, and no failures to regret. I at least am not one
of their number, nor have I ever supposed my views
upon many subjects to be capable of reconciliation with
the views of an influential section of this community.
But among the errors I perceive is not that of mistak-
ing the direction in which its future interests lie or
laying undue emphasis on particular measures of re-
form to the neglect of others; and those whose support
I have unfortunately failed to obtain are principally
gentlemen who see nothing to reform at all.
I have long felt, Gentlemen, that those plantations
of the seventeenth century, of which Bermuda is one,
which have retained to the present time powers of self-
government, originally overshadowed by the Crown and
Parliament of England, but for a long time in practice
little restricted by either, are among the most interest-
ing studies which the wide and complex scope of the
British Empire presents. Their virtues and their fail-
ings are alike peculiar. Slavery never in this Colony
presented the repulsive features which it did elsewhere,
but it has left a heritage of social difficulty no man can
shut his eyes to, and no Governor neglect. I invite
you to bridge over a century, or even to picture the
position of your grandchildren, if no steps are taken to
adjust the conditions of Government to the wholly al-
tered state of society which that short interval must
produce. Is it the part of a patriot or a statesman
then to live for the present hour and stand immoveably
on an edifice that is crumbling under his feet, or
ought he to discard the signs of the times and build
anew on a broader and sounder foundation ? Never
had a people its happiness in its own hands to a greater
degree than the people of Bermuda ; never was there a
place where a wise and beneficent legislation would
em ounter so few real difficulties if public opinion were
prepared for it. I appreciate, I think, as highly as
any one can do, the many amiable qualities of the na-
tives of Bermuda-the harmonious flow of social inter-
course, the strength of the family ties, the dutiful res-
pect with which old age is cherished, the kindly rela-
tions which on the whole obtain between the different
classes, and to which is due the very marked superiority
of the colored race here as a whole, to their brethren in
the West Indies and the Southern States of America,


a superiority which strikes every traveller. But thus
feeling I cannot be blind to the large field there still
exists for internal improvement, and my effort and am-
bition have been, not to make these Islands a different
place from what Providence and nature have shaped
them, but to see them an example to other and larger
communities in a well ordered and fitly proportioned
Government, diffusing the greatest amount of happi-
ness attainable under the actual conditions of life; by
means of those influences which alone under Providence
secure it,
Your kind language, Coi.Ilemen, in regard to Mrs.
Lefroy, has been deeply gratifying to me and to her.
We shall look back to the years past in these Islands
as among the happiest of our lives. We shall alike
meet with sadness the hour that is to part us from them,
and from the many valued friends we have gained here,
and I am persuaded that my children, who have shared
our feelings will never forget the years of their early
life passed among scenes so full of enjoyment. I earn-
estly pray that the kind Providence of GOD may con-
tinue to avert calamity from these shores, and I confi-
dently believe that when a little time has elapsed, those
who are now groundlessly irritated against me, I am.
told. on account of the language of a recent report
whi(h hey have misunderstood, will acknowledge that
they have had no more sincere friend than he who now
bids them and you FAREWELL.

with the Governor. Although the ladies are pres-
ent, and I may not be easily forgiven by them for
what I am about to say, I cannot keep silent on a
point which so much affects us all, as the good done
socially by the Governor and together with him, by
one, the most near and dear to him. I allude, of
course to Mrs. Lefroy. If I may use a homely but
holy phrase, I shall speak of them in this regard as
" Husband and wife."
To the Governor, Mrs. Lefroy, and also to the
ladies of their family we owe, socially, a deep debt
of gratitude. Ever sympathetic, ever ready with a
helping hand, ;with an ear always open to hear and
a heart to respond to the joys and troubles of
others. With a house the doors of which were
ever opened wide to receive all friends and acquaint-
ances, we of the Navy can add strong testimony;
and with a hand which I know well by informa-
tion from various sources, was always ready to give
bountiful help to the needy, always aiding in every
charitable object.
None were so ready to take the lead in encourag-
ing art and all that tends to refine, cultivate, and
give a high tone to society; and the marks thus left
behind are such as can never be effaced.
In my opinion the success of the Governor of a
Colony, depends very much upon his wife, it is she,
who works with him, by him, and for him; by her
tact, energy and exertions she often carries through
that, in which he could not possibly succeed without
her aid. It is said that "man has his will, woman
her way," and this is a true saying. Her way is
the best, in so far as it tends to what is good and
right, and to which a woman's instinct naturally
leads her.
There is one more of the household whom I must
not leave unmentioned: I am sure that were I to
do so, it would be considered that I had made a
serious omission. 1 allude to the Governor's Pri-
vate Secretary and Aide-de-Camp, Capt. Lockhart,
who has done so much to promote pleasant social
gatherings in this community, whose kindness and
courtesy have endeared him to us all, and whose
untiring energy, ever displayed for the welfare and


SPEECH MADE BY VICE ADMIRAL SIR
COOPER KEY, K.C.B.,
On the occasion of a Farewell Dinner to His Ex-
cellency Major-General J. H. LEFROY, C.B., at
Clarence Hill on Tuesday, the 8th May, 1877.

MY GooD FRIENDS,-I purpose to ask you to join
me in drinking the health of His Excellency the
Governor, Major-General Lefroy, and in wishing
him and his God speed" in his departure from
these Islands.
I wish it had fallen to the lot of one more able
to express my feelings and yours, on this occasion,
than I am. My difficulties are increased by His
Excellency being present-much gratified as we
must all be that after so serious an illness he is able
to appear amongst us again. I would willingly
dispense with his presence at this moment. He
must however bear in mind that we are now refer-
ring to him, not in his private capacity, but as a
public man; and I must remember with the few
words I shall say, that I am not speaking for
myself alone, but as the spokesman of all classes in
Bermuda, nearly all of which are now represented
at this table.
For one reason I have a good right to propose
this toast, as I may claim a longer acquaintance
and friendship with Governor Lefroy than anyone
in these Islands out of his own family; they date
back so long ago as twenty years.
We met first when we were together on the
"Royal Commission of National Defence." We
worked then fully long enough together to impress
me with the highest regard and esteem for my col-
league, and the able, intelligent, earnest way in
which all he undertook was performed. One inci-
dent which happened at that time made such an
impression on me, that, although nineteen years
ago, I remember it as if yesterday. We were at
luncheon; I asked General Lefroy for some bread;
as he cut it he remarked, the epitaph I should
wish put on my tombstone when I die is, He al-
ways cut the loaf fair.'" My intimate acquaint-
ance with his subsequent career proved to me that
he has faithfully acted up to the sentiment then
expressed: it is the keynote of his character, I
only do him justice when I say that however ardu-
ous the task, whatever the difficulties which lie
before him, whatever obstacles to be overcome, his
course is always to go straight through them, never
swerving to the right hand or the left. Never since
we have been thrown together in the public service
have I found that he for a moment adopted any
other.
When I speak of the highest points of his cha-
racter I should not mention his talents, great as
they are-nor his knowledge of many subjects, ex-
tensive though it is-nor his industry and unusual
capacity for work, although all here are well aware
to what an unusual extent they are developed in
him; but I put before all these his purity of mo-
tive' and his honesty of purpose,' his single-minded
desire for the good of others and loyalty to all.
Early in public life, owing to a combination of these
qualities I have mentioned, he was selected for high
and responsible appointments-Inspector of Mili-
tary Schools, Secretary and President of the Ord-
nance Committes, Director of Ordnance, and others.
The ability and zeal displayed in each successive
appointment pointed him out as being a fit and
right man for others.
All who have taken an interest in and understand
the great changes which took place in ordnance at
the time when he was employed on the ordnance
committee will agree with me when I say that a
large share of the perfection of our ordnance in the
present day is due to His Excellency. Many of
you know better than I the good which has arisen
all round us in these Islands under his hand. How
many of the best and most useful institutions owe
their origin to him. The establishment of Savings
Banks-what could be more useful or more wanted ?
The new and humane Lunatic Asylum, which gives
a home to those unfortunates whose minds are
affected, where they are properly and judiciously
treated, and attended to their own benefit and comn-
fort, as well as to that of their friends. The educa-
tion of the lower classes, thereby enabling them to
participate in the advantages of mental culture;
tending to raise and refine them, and which adds
that blessing of all blessings, that now we can see
The bible in everyone' hands, and that they can
read and understand it for themselves.
In scientific Agriculture and Horticulture His
Excellency has taken an extended and practical in-
terest in all their various details, great and small.
All his powerful influence he has brought to bear
on the amelioration of the position of the poorer
classes.
The building a new light house on David's
Head.
The abolition of imprisonment for debt-the
greatest boon which could accrue to any community.
And many other good works, the execution of
Which is due directly to him or have been carried
out under his administration, which I have not
time to mention. I have indeed merely enumerated
a few out of the many that others could bring for-
ward.
All here who take a part and an interest in the
welfare of the Colony must know and feel that its
present cumbrous and unwieldy constitution cannot
last for many years longer; and if with the present
system so much has been done by the Governor,
with little power and with neither executive or res-
ponsible government, I ask you-what could and
would be effected were the constitution remodelled
on a better basis ?
Having spoken of his public career, I would re-
vert to an equally or even more important point,
and am now reminded that others will leave us


A very full historical sketch of the progress of
" public education in Bermuda will be found in my
"Report accompanying the Blue Book for the year
"1872, and more recent statistics in that for the year
"1874. It is only necessary here to repeat that the
"condition of education in the Colony is highly un-
" satisfactory. It is not merely that the common
" schools are much below the proper standard, and
"that technical instruction is entirely wanting; but
"it is unfortunately true also that the class which is
"to furnish the future men of business and landown-
"ers of the county, the magistrates and the mem-
"bers of the Assembly, is relatively even worse edu-
"cated than the class below them, and the poor
" whites much worse than the coloured race.
"That such a state of things can prevail for
"many years without serious social consequences is
"impossible, but the Legislature cannot be persuad-
"ed to face the,.difficulties which the problem of
"mixed races, nearly balanced, presents.
A superior school in connection with the Me-
" chanics Institute was opened in Hamilton on the
" 1st June, and is undoubtedly a subject of congratu-
"lation, but its effect has not been to extend the
"area of education; it has rather by new attractions
"withdrawn children from schools of professedly
"higher standard."

DEPARTURE OF GOVERNOR LEFROY.
On Thursday last the 10th instant, General Le-
froy having completed his sixth year of Office as
Governor of Bermuda, left in the Mail Steamer Ber-
muda, for New York.
As has been usual in the case of preceding Gov-
ernors the Mail Steamer took His Excellency and
Family on board opposite Mount Langton, and not
at the usual place of embarkation in Hamilton.
The Bermuda left Hamilton Harbour at about 5
p.m and shortly after her departure His Excel-
lency and family left Mount Langton and proceeded
to the Ducking-stool, where, Admiral Sir Cooper
Key's barge awaited them, and from which they
embarked on board the Steamer, and, in an hour or
so, were well on their journey.
Such in a few words are the bare facts of the
matter, but much remains to be noticed, not only
as relates to the many circumstances of interest at-
taching to an event of a kind so different from the
ordinary incidents of Bermuda life, but as regards
the feeling and reflections called forth on this par-
ticular occasion.
The day was singularly beautiful, and the con-
course of persons-(a little exceeding 2000 in num-
ber) comparatively large. A Guard of Honour of
the 46th Regiment, under command of Captain
Maydwell, and Lieuts. Verschoyle and Eden, with
Queen's Color and their Band, was of course present,
who, we observed for the first time in Bermuda,
wore their picturesque white shako with its glitter-
ing spike and red band. A great assemblage of
Officers of the Army and Navy in full uniform, ad-
ded their element of life and brilliancy ; as might be
supposed the better part of Bermuda Society was
present, and a fleet of yachts, the Admiral's barge
with steam launches, all combined to present a
bright and animated scene. Few could witness
without a pang of regret the departure of those who
for so long a period had been resident amongst us,
or view unmoved the unaffected display of natural
and simple feeling evinced alike by those who left,
and by those who remained.
This is not a pl:ce in which to dwell upon
His Excellency's political and public character,
our readers will elsewhere in our columns see these
matters treated of in detail, but we cannot say fare-
well without a few last words of tribute to the social
and domestic qualities of Governor Lefroy and his
family.
Governors are of many sorts. Were we to ha.
zard advice as to what a Governor should do in
order to be popular with large masses of mankind,
we should probably not produce an individual of
marked or superior character. To be well-born
and rich, courtly and accomplished, to dispense
with lavish hand the hospitalities of Mount Lang-
ton, to cross no one's path, to interfere with no
vested rights,-to oppose no prejudice, to be uni-
formly neutral and insipid, and a political cipher,
is our prescription for a popular Governor in Ber-
muda, and could Governor Lefroy have so far forgot.
ten the duties of his office, and his character as a
man, and be might easily, had he so desired it,
have left amidst a tumult of appl-iuse as noisy, as
unreflective and as unmeaning as any man of in-
ferior character could well desire. But Governor
Lefroy was none of this. All who knew him, recog.
nized in him a man of high and chivalrous honour,
of patient ungrudging labour, pure in morals,
amiable, domestic, devout, hospitable, charitable
to a fault; uncompromising in principle, of singu-
lar rectitude of purpose, and sustaining to the ut-
most of his ability the character of a Christian and
a Gentleman. Allowing for the errors of poor hu-
man nature can any man do more.
Governor Lefroy, his Wife and Children will
carry with them from Bermuda many an enduring
and affectionate remembrance.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sm,-Although so much has been published in
the newspapers, and so much more has been talked
about Governor Lefroy's official Report on the
State of Education in Bermuda in 1875, there still
seems to exists considerable misapprehension in
the community as to the real contents of that
paper.
Some persons confidently insist there, are asser-
tions in it, which in fact it does not contain; others
as confidently believing that observations in it
I have been either totally ignored or so mixed up
with newspaper comments as to be kept out of
sight. I have procured and append an exact
copy of the whole of the report on this head, as
printed in the official documents for the year,
which I think would be acceptable to many of
your readers, who upon a perusal of the entire
paper may judge for themselves of its real scope
and purport.
ISLANDER.

"6TH.-EDUCATION."


BERMUDA.

Adjourned Court of General Assize.
TUESDAY, 8TH MAY, 187 7
R. V. WILLIAM CO X.
This is a rule Nisi at the instance of the Crown
calling upon the respondent to show cause why an
attachment Ashould not issue against him for con-
tempt in not obeying a summons from the President
of a District Court Martial held at Boaz in these
Islands, to attend and give evidence at such Court
Martial.
The Affidavits shew that the summons in questi-
on which was in due form was not served on the
respondent personally, but sent by post and it is
urged by the Council for the respondent that on
this among other grounds the rule should be dis-
charged.
By the Mutiny Act of 1876, Section 13, after
providing for the summoning of witnesses by means
of a summons signed by the Judge Advocate in
the case of General Courts-martial and by the Pre-
sident of a District Court-martial, it is enacted that
"all witnesses so duly Summoned as aforesaid, who
shall not attend on such Courts shall be
liable to be attached in Courts of Law
* in any of Her Majesty's Colonies *
upon complaint made in like manner as if such
witness after having been duly Summoned, or-sub-
poenaed had neglected to attend upon a trial in any
proceeding in the Court in which such complaint
shall be made." The Act does not explain the
manner of service of a Summons nor throw any
intrinsic light upon what is meant by the term
" duly Summoned."
Thus as we read the section we are called upon
to proceed in the matter of such an attachment as
this, as if the respondent had been duly summoned,
to attend on a trial in the Court of General Assize,
but we are still to find out what is meant by the
terms "duly summoned" in the 13th section of the
MutinyAct; forit might wellhappen that the Courts-
martial might require in their service of a sum-
mons less strictness than the service of a like
process in our own Courts.
We entertain no doubt that it is old and clear
law that in order to found an attachment or a
subpoena summons, to compel attendance to give
evidence in a Court of Justice at Common Law


MAJOR GENERAL LEFROY, R.A., C.B.,
Who took the oaths of office on 9th May, 1871,
having just completed his term as Governor of Ber-
muda, left us, on his homeward voyage, on Thurs-
day last.
After a period of six years, (with but a short
intermission of a few months) spent in a small com-
munity like this, it would be next to impossible
for the actions and expressions of any Governor to
have passed unnoticed or to be immediately forgot-
ten; how much more then have we cause to re-
member the sayings and doings of the active and
energetic Officer whose departure we now record.
Shortly after his arrival in Bermuda His Ex-
cellency, in calling together the Legislature, where
he met a' new House of Assembly, set out the pro-
gramme of his future rule in the concluding portion
of his speech: Having been intrusted by Her
" Majesty with the administration of this Colony,
"it will be my highest ambition to promote its wel-
"fare; to co-operate with you in every measure
"calculated to promote education and industry;
" and to see that happy social state secured in which
" there is neither great poverty nor great riches;
"but a general participation of the blessings of
"peace and contentment in a climate unsurpassed
"under Heaven and in a soil so much of which
"needs but man's industry to render it the Garden
"of the Atlantic."
These words we assert embrace the aspirations
and desires of the then new Governor in their true
sense; and that ever since the day in which they
were pronounced he has endeavoured by act and
word to support them, we believe no one can doubt.
That all will agree that he always adopted the
best means for success, we do not expect, and that
he failed in accomplishing many cherished projects,
either through opposition of others or from some
other cause, we do not deny; but that he acted at
all times with earnest sincerity and conscientious-
ness for the public weal, we think, must be granted
on'all sides.
During his term of office we notice the completion
of several extensive public works, which benefitted
under his fostering care. Among them we are
particularly reminded of the Causeway, Manhatton
Shoal, Timlin's Channel, and the new Lunatic Hos-
pital. Nor should we' forget the advances made
towards the improvement of St. Georges, the erec-
tion of St. David's Lighthouse, and the better state
of the Roads throughout the country, in all of which
he was continually interested.
In all things which tended to the moral improve-
ment and general advancement of knowledge or
manliness he was in the front rank, to his concep-
tion we were indebted for a successful Local Exhibi-
tion in 1872, and also that of last year preparatory
to the selection of articles for the great Philadel-
phia Centennial Exhibition, and never when applied
to in a good cause could it be said that he was
backward with his purse or countenance.
A desire to advance agriculture and horticulture
throughout the Island was manifested to the great-
est extent by him, always indeavouring to obtain
and diffuse knowledge, what to cultivate and how
to cultivate it, was a matter of interest to him in
order that it might be turned to the general good;
the produce now exported from Bermuda is double
as much as it was in 1870, while throughout the
Country new trees, shrubs and plants of various
species tell of the generous hand which imported
and distributed them.
Besides both public and private works advanced
by him, our Statute Book bears evidence of much
that has been done at his suggestion or with his
sanction, and the Acts that bear his signature will
probably compare favourably with any future legis-
lation in our Islands; but while noting these we
cannot but be struck with the omission of many
which his warning voice frequently recommended,
but which one branch of the Legislature or the
other have not thought fit to pass, showing that all
men, even where they have the same end in view,
and that their country's good, cannot agree on the
means of attaining it.
We conceive that the rule marked out by Governor
Lefroy in the opening speech above alluded to-has
been exampledby his conduct; that hehaa been fault-
less we do not contend, nor do we expect the whole
public to agree that his views were always correct,
or that he adopted the best method of attaining a
good end; but, as far as we could judge him as a
man, we consider his faults sprung from a good
source, a generous disposition. Outspoken and truth-
ful in the extreme, (according to our impression) he
believed all others to be the same, consequently first
impressions took a strong hold on him, and it was
difficult for him to shake off such impressions after-
wards, even where he had been misled in the first
instance.
This we think will account for some acts of his
which were not acceptable everywhere.
We would only suggest that those who have felt
offence, should look back and consider whether it
can be said that the particular act which was dis-
pleasing to them can be attributed to any other than
a conscientious desire on the part of our late Gov-
ernor to perform his duty.
In the above we have restricted ourselves to Gene-
ral Lefroy, in his public capacity of Governor, nor
do we intend to go beyond that; as his high attain-
ments, virtues, hospitality and charity appear to us
more fitted for a different style of record, and pro.-
bably could be more faithfully portrayed by others.


Somerset Bridge to Hamilton. I called out to
Woods to come on, and as soon as I saw him follow.
ing up I started for the swim of, I should suppose,
a mile and a half to two miles long. I looked back
several times and saw Woods but as the waves were
high I did not see him every time. After
continuing the swim for about half an hour I fell
in with a man called Ingharm from Warwick and as
soon as I got on board his boat we sailed back to
look for Woods. I regret to say that our search was
fruitless. Whether he was taken with cramp or en-
tirely lost his presence of mind I do not know. He
did not call to me in distress and when I last saw
him he was following me. I thought that our best
chance of rescue was to keep separated so that if
one failed to make himself heard by the people ;on
board a passing boat, the other would perhaps sue-
ceed in doing so. -
Woods was a splendid swimmer and I understand
was a noted "conch-diver" in Turks' Islands. 'I
have often heard of wonderful feats which he has
accomplished in the water and it seems difficultfto
understand why his powers should have failed him
at so critical a time. He was an honest, trustwor-
thy and respectable man, and will be much missed
by all who knew him. -
Although every effort has been made to recover
the body of the unfortunate man Woods, up to last
evening, they had proved unsuccessful.

must be personally served. This privilege or right
may be looked upon as part of the law affecting
the liberty of the subject, and prevails generally in
respect of all summonses and subpoenas, in all ordi-
nary Courts of Law. The Mutiny Act, in estab.
fishing new Courts with new jurisdiction and new
process by way of summons to witnesses in the
nature of subpoena, must be presumed to contem-
plate the existing condition of the law, and the
privileges and liberty of the subject, and in confor-
mity with well known principles of construction in
Statutory Law, no inference can be drawn against
this privilege and this liberty, and the act in question
must be held to preserve to the subject, his right of
personal service of the process of summons to give
evidence unless such privilege and liberty be in pre-
cise terms abridged, and we consequently consider
that in analogy with the general law of subpoena,
the terms duly summoned" in the section above
referred to, must for the purpose of founding an at-
tachment include personal service, and w~eaeord-
ingly think that the objection made by the respon-
dent on this ground must prevail.
We are happy to see that the Books of Practice
on Courts-martial recognize the advisability of effect-
ing personal service. Simmons on Courts-martial,
Edon. 1863--Section 896-7, and for very obvious
reasons it is advisable that no laxity should creep
into the practice of Courts of Criminal jurisdiction,
civil or military, which can by reasonable precau.
tion be avoided.
As to the other points referred to in argument
we say but little, much having already fallen from
the Court in the course of the argument as to the
duty of civilians to pay that respect which is due
to Her Majesty's Courts of Criminal or civil juris.
diction, whether Courts-martial or Courts of com-
mon law, and the duty that rests with this Court to
mark with high disapprobation any contemptuous
disregard of the process of cognate Courts.
We entertain no doubt that the respondent was
well aware of having been summoned to give evi-
dence at a Court-martial, though the summons was
not personally served upon him, and that he excused
himself from attendance on the ground of having
business engagements of a pressing kind, an excuse
which is not valid in law, and we entertain no
doubt that it is not competent for a witness to raise
questions on a rule for an attachment as to whether
the testimony he was to be called upon to give were
material or not.
We repeat that it is the duty of every man to
obey the process of a Court of competent jurisdic.
tion, civil or military, in the general interests of
Society, without reference to business engagements,
and we look upon it that the respondent has availed
himself of a defence which is technical and forma 1
and does not clear him of the imputation of his having
entertained a very mistaken opinion as to his legal
obligations.
The rule must be discharged, but the application
for the rule being made by the Attorney General
on behalf of the Crown there can be no order as to
costs.

MELANCHOLY AcomIEw~.-On Saturday morning
last, about 8 o'clock, Joseph L. Trimingham, Esqr.,
left Hamilton for Mangrove Bay in his open boat,
the Somerset," having with him a ferryman named
John Woods. The day was a lovely one, there was
a moderate breeze from about North and the Bar-
ometer, which Mr. T. invariably consults before
starting in a boat, stood very high. Mr. T. in-
forms us, that he sailed along up through the is-
lands and passed Hawkin's Island, leaving it on
the right, then shaped a course for Somerset Ferry,
sailing very closely to the wind as it was possible,
though scarcely probable, that we should "fetch"
through the Narrows. We had gone about half way
between Pearl Island and the Somerset shore when
a violent gust of wind from about N.E. struck the
boat. I told Woods to let go the jib sheet, which he
held in his hand, and at the same time the helm, was
put hard down and sprang the boat to the wind,
but the shock was too powerful for her, and she
"heeled" over and it became apparent that she
must go down. I seized some boards and jumped
overboard, and so did Woods-all this took place in a
few seconds of time. The first thing I did was- to
take off my coat and shoes, and. knowing that Woods
was a splendid swimmer, I did not feel much con-
cern for him, though the position was somewhat
awkward. On looking round, however, I noticed
that Woods looked considerably frightened, and as
he was not undressing as quickly as the occasion
seemed to demand, I went to him and took off his
coat, this seemed to encourage him considerably and
both he and I then proceeded to take off the rest of
our clothes. I was the first undressed, and finding
that Woods was still a little unnerved I went to him
again and gave him the boards which I had kept for
my own support. This appeared to inspire-him
with confidence, and I then left him to undress fur-
ther, while I swam to recover some more boards,
which by this time had drifted about 50 yards or so
to leeward. Woods called to me and asked m -to
hail some boats which were passing to windward.
I told him there was no use in doing that, as it was
not possible for them to hear, but, I said, "Come
on with me as fast as you can and we shall soon be
all right." I was fortunate enough to get hold of
the boat's rudder and a small box and having done
so I "hove to" as it were to decide on a plan of ac-
tion, and to wait for Woods. After a survey of the
position I made up my mind that Tucker's Island,
although nearly twice as far off at the Somerset
shore, was the point to aim for. Among the vari-
ous circumstances which seemed to favor this plan
(but which I need not mention here) was the fact
that we should cross the track of the boats from

H'amilton, May 14th, 1877.-1
Two letters appear in the London DAILY TEiM-
oa.PH, the claims of the Turkish Tribute bond hold-
ers. The wordls'" sold" or "assigned" to creditors
are somewhat loosely used, but the truth is that the
great majority of foreign loans of late years, in-
cluding all but one of the Turkish, have involved an
assignmentt of property to creditors," and no one
dreams of forcible interference by the English
Government. The difference in favor of the 1854
and 1871 bondholders is that some of the property
they claim is in London and not abroad; and they
propose to get it out of the control of the Turkish
Government by *4eans of an Act of Parliament
which would sanction its distribution whether the
Porte approved or inot. As Turkey is a weak
Power, and her conduct is really indefensible, the
attempt may succeed, but it is a singular innova-
tion, and it would be advisable not to take the
course as a precedent applicable to Powers of ano-
ther stamp, Russia, for instance, or the United
States. On the general principle of Government
interference with defaulting States we repeat that
the rule Lord Derby laid down is the only sound
one. Any other would merely facilitate the rais-
ing of loans here by bankrupt or dishonest States,
as capitalists would feel they might safely lend
when they had the English fleet and army behind
them to recover the debt. Lord Rnssell, we are
aware, did really write a very pungent little missive

SlH-] N NATIONAL PUBLISHING
CO., of Philadelphia, have recently is-
sued some very valuable works, among which
is,
A Practical and Devotional Family
BIBLE,
With over 1000 illustrations.
It contains in part,
A Bible Dictionary, by WM. SMITH, L.L.D.
History of the Bible
Do. of the Translation of the Bible
Do. of all Religious Denominations, both
Ancient and Modern
A Photograph Album.
In short, it is the best and cheapest Bible
ever published.

ALSO,
The Official
History of the Centennial Exhibi-
tion,
With a full description of the great buildings
and all the objects of interest in them,
embellished with nearly 400 engrav-
ings.
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 Exhibition 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."
These works can be had at the publishers'
prices, through the undersigned who has a
copy of each for inspection.

musical jury has but stamped the seal of the
American Centennial Exhibition upon the gener-
ally awarded verdict of every vocalist and musi-

rich tone combined with greatest power as shown

" Eau" of Dr. H oltz for
HAIR DYE.
'HIIS WATER is of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive. :
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. IIOLTrz'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, Da. HOLTZ has
succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give.
the richest balsamic dyeing and curative es3,en-
ces, and it is by this study that he succeeded to
compound a dye which may be styled as the
Regeierator by excellence of the chevelure.

RIGOLLOT'S
MUSTARD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,

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

IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot's Paper in cases
of great gravity, i that of acting very rapidly. It is
in important Healing Agent. To children, weak,
and nervous persons, I strongly recommend the fol.
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 leave. 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.
Beware of Imitations.
