Prospedt about 3-15 saw a few keen sportsmen in the
saddle ready for a gallop. There were also several car-
riages with Ladies who despised the stormy weather for
where there is a will there is a way, as also there are
two ways of negotiating a fence. As some of my
friends know right well. Time, is up, the Master
vaults into his saddle, one touch on his horn and we have
left the carriages eager for the spin over Bermuda's
richest pastures, past the Married Quarters where the
childrenwere delighted to see the Horses, down to the
well known walls at Tucker's field where we overran
the scent. Hold hard, .try back, cries the Master who
hits off the line and we came racing down to the stone
wall, when the leading men saw two of the
Sportsmen coming at the same fence running heel and
were just in time to pull their horses off. Young I
hounds will show their eagerness by running riot, no
harm is done and away we go past the carriages, down-
a hill to 'some swampy ground, which was crossed by a
narrow cow path. Over the next hill two of- the field
were missing, the master gave them a little time as he
was afraid they had got into the swamp, there being
no "Wreckers" nearer than those belonging to the
Ward Union Hounds to assist in pulling them out;
however up they came smiling to the cheery notes of
the Horn r

t To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-In your paper of Tuesday last, an appeal
was made to the public, for contributions for the
relief of the widows and orphans of Pilot Brang.
man, and his fellow boatman Samuel Bassett, who'
perished in the Storm on Saturday before the last,
when attempting in their pilot gig to board a vessel
in the offing at the South West.
I hope the appeal may be liberally responded to,
and that some substantial relief may be contributed
by charitable, persons, towards the support of the
nine or, ten women and children who have been thus
suddenly bereaved of the bread-winners in their
families. But this object I think would be much.
more likely to be attained, if somepgentleman of
known character and position could-be induced'to
undertake the duty of acting as treasurer: and' dis.
burse brefi ny money that may be collected for
these two unfortunate families." It too often hap-
pens on such distressing occasions that any funds
collected for the sufferers are, immediately wasted
without affording any permanent or'substantial re-
lief to those for whose benefit they were intended';
and the knowledge that such is very apt to be the'
case, restrains many who are benevolently disposed
from contributing as much as they otherwise might
be inclined to do, or perhaps from contributing at
all, to the proposed object. In the present instance,
I do hope that some reliable gentleman will consent
to act on this suggestion, and by this means a
larger amount may be gathered up for the numer-
ous sufferers.- VIATOR.

Most of us _tnk that Lord Salisbury at Constan-
tinople was the right man in the right place, but we
are not so sure of Lady Salisbury's fitness for that
.ecality. The Marchioness has an old established
i eputation- as a sayer of sharp things, and if club
gossip be true ,she has exercised her faculty with
Sery undiplomatic readiness. To tell the wife of
the Grand Vizier that unless her husband and her
sovereign gave ii their fate was sealed, was not quite
the way to overcome diplomatic difficulties. Nor
was it wise to pray, at all events in public, that the
fate of Sodom and Gomorrah might be Stamboul's.
It was for this. reason, I suspect, rather than for
any diplomatic doings of the Marquis, that the Salis-
bury carriage 4as pelted by angry Turks. Midhat
Pasha does noi, o1ve the Marchioness, and it is no
wonder that "hepersuaded his master, the Sultan, to
have a tootha'elie rather than take farewell of 'her'
and her husband. The Russian Ambassadress seems
to have been mitch more discreet than the English,
and most persons, especially Count Corti, the Italian
Ambassador, call Madame Ignatieff charming.
The opinion of Bishop Colenso on the condition ofj
Affairs at the Cape is an important one. It is given
'in a private letter written to a friend in London.
He is convinced from personal knowledge that the
Kaffirs in the Cape Colony are not as seriously dis-
affected as they are commonly represented in Lon-
don, and that they have no thought of aggressive
measures. They have grievances against the colon-
ists, however, and have been ill-treated by the au-"
thorities. Children have been carried off wholesale
from some districts ,to be indentured in distant
places, and the Bishop is very indignant upon this
It is believed that the Queen contemplates making
another trip to the Continent during the spring, the
Continent in.thiq case being a synonym for Germany.i
If so the journey will probably come off during the
Easter recess.- I do not hear of any preparation
being made to celebrate the next 20th of June in
any particular way, though it will be the fortieth
anniversary of Her Miajesty's accession. We must
wait another ten years, I presume, ;and in 1887, if all
goes well, there will be a grand jubilee. Even then
the Queen will be by no means an old woman-only
68. Already, however, she has outlived all her first
bishops, judges and marquisses.
The idea of workmen's clubs is being taken pji at
last very generally, net only by those who think of
them as religions agencies, but also for distinctively
secular aims, and.even for political purposes. Dean
Stanley regardsathem as the best remedy for intem-
perance, Mr. Solly as the best method for teaching
men political economy. The Dean wishes clubs
where rational and elevating forms of recreation,"
association, and the means of culture are supplied to
take the place of the public-house. Mr. Solly, fear.-
ing that ignorance of history and politics constitutes
a national danger, wishes everywhere to establish
institutions in which good weekly political debates
are held. In the main the idea is the same. Work-
men cannot and do not spend all ,their evenings at
home. They have no studies. Their libraries are
small. ,Even if they, possessed hooks they would be
too fatigued to read night after night. Wherefore '
they drilt naturally to the public-house, because they
have no other refuge in bad weather. But they
would be likely to choose a club in preference if
clubs were only well conducted.

NEW YORK & BERMUDA DIVISION.
A. ExMrv0. OUTEEBRIDGE, Agent.
No. 29, Broadway, New York,
December 20th, 1876.
Sin,-The Quebec and Gulf Ports S. S. Co. beg
respectfully to represent, that, in view of the early
termination of their contract for Steam: Communi.
cation between New York and Bermuda, and no
provision having been made for a renewal of the
Contract, although the desirability of maintaining
the Service has been affirmed by both branches of
the Legislature, the Directors have decided to con-
tinue the service in all respects as heretofore, name-
ly by fortnightly trips from this date till the 1st of
April, and& weekly trips from that date till the 1st
July following in the expectation that the Legis-
lature before that time may renew the grant for the
continuation of Steam service, and allow it to cover
the time from the expiration of the present contract.
From the commencement of their contract the
Company have used their best efforts to make the
service successful, first by fitting the contract
steamer in a manner to attract first class travel,
and then by extensively advertising the attractive-
ness of the Bermuda Islands, and making them
known all over the Continent. 45,000 illustrated
descriptive pamphlets have been circulated amongst
Physicians, Clergymen, Merchants and all classes
of the community with extensive advertising in
guides and newspapers. Agencies for the sale of
tickets have been established at all the chief cities
and towns in the United States and Canada, the re--
sult of which is, that Bermuda is well known, and
is growing in favor as a Winter Resort. The Com-
pany have also made arrangements for forwarding
merchandise from all parts of Great Britain,m the
United States and Canada, on through Bills of
Lading to Bermuda, and have made the trips fort-
nightly, instead of three weekly, as called for by
the contract, and have reduced the rates of freight
and passage below the contract schedule, in order
to render 'the greatest possible advantage to the
community in return for the Subsidy, as well as
with the hope of promoting their own interests.
To abandon the service at the termination of the
Contract, would be to sacrifice all that has been.
done, by a large outlay of capital and labor, to
build up the business,, and the Company are un-
willing to do this, while there is any hope of the
contract being renewed.
But should there be no provision for a renewal
of the Subsidy before the 1st July next, the Com-
pany will be forced to withdraw the 'steamers, as it
is impossible they can be run at a profit without a
Subsidy, while for nine months in the year there is
no return cargo whatever, and less than half a cargo
on the average outwards.
For the convenience of all interested in this work,
the Company beg to inclose a time table, shewing
the intended movements of their steamers, which
however is subject to revision should circumstances

(Concludcd from last "Gazette,")
Thus leaving the outer world, we return from our
:,d-:'r!i. to our home, which, though the least in
geographical extent, is, nevertheless, the most im-
port ant to ourselves and the large majority of our
r1,.d1, t- IWe will lN,,hiu with a glance at our situ-
In the Governor's Speech on opening the Colo-
ni:dl Parliament in this year His Excellency reverted
to the premature closing of the Session of the prior
year, caused chiefly by a difference of opinion be-
tween His E x'-elleuny and the Assembly in the opini-
on entertained and persisted in by the House, that a
constitutional eightt resides in Legislative bodies
to elect members of Boards or Committees constitu-
ted by law for the discharge of Public functions of
an Executive character. This practice the Gover-
nor reminded the House was fraught .with inconve-
niin:-n,-, and the Executive could not acquiesce in it.
The step taken by the Governor was fully approved
of by Lord Carnarvon. This measure together
with the non-provision for a new Gaol, so urgently
pressed upon the attention of the Assembly, Session
after Session during several years, and the deter-
iniuation of thl As nemily to adhere to this mode of
administering proposed grants for the maintenance
of Steam Communication with New York, notwith-
standing the ,leppatches of the Secretary of State
which are directly opposed to this line of conduct,
led His Excelleniiy in his Speech at the close of the
Session to nrtn:.Ik:-.
"You, however, see fit, gentlemen, in the exer-
cise of your judgment to place an interpretation on
the terms of a despatch which it was my duty to
communicate to you, that is the opposite of its
meaning, and one which I am bound to take ex-
ception to. Acting on your own view of the Sec-
retary of State's meaning you have adhered to a
provision for administering the proposed grants for
the maintenaLuce of Steam Communication with
New York, and for the erection of a Gaol, which
had been repeatedly rejected by the other branch of
the'Legislat ire, and condemned by the Executive.
The inevitable consequence has again followed
in the loss of these measures, the former of which,
at any rate, is of immediate and vital importance to
the interests of the industrial classes.
"I '-an reflect with satisfaction that nothing has
been wanting on my part to impress upon you the
gravity of these issues, and that nothing has been
insisted upon by the Executive Government but
that the Be3rmida Legislature should adhere to the
est ablish d pi-inciples of the British Constitution
and to the- better practices which from Governor
Reid's time to the present have been steadily pre.
vailing over former anomalies. It is scarcely ne- i
cessary for me to remind you that the Imperial
Parliament has voted for the Naval and Military
defence of this Colony, as a Fortress and Naval
Station, within a few years, considerably over half a '
million sterling, or that the forces stationed here
exceed in average number the adult male popula-
tion of the colony. These facts which cannot be
disputed make it indispensable that the authority
of the Crown be permanent.
dor-"I have fought the good fight, I have fin-
ished my course, I have kept the faith."
During the inclement winter season of 1876,
whose storms were similar to those which uniform-
ly, at such times, sweep along the American shore
claiming their victims from out the many frail
craft that frequent that ice-bound coast, the usual
number of distressed, but fortunate vessels that es-
cape destruction, sought an asylum in our hospit-
able island, which, as if providentially placed there,
as a haven of refuge for the wearied storm-tossed
mariner, lies just without the usual storm track.
The crops of potatoes, onions and tomatoes were
very promising at the beginning of the season, and
did not disappoint expectations in quantity or qual-
ity. There was a greater quantity of potatoes
planted than in the former year, and it was believed
that the onion crop would be small, but the ship-
ments of the season showed that there was a very
large quantity exported, though not so large as
that of the two previous years; the potato crop,
however, exceeded largely that of 1875. The first
shipment of produce gave handsome returns, and
hope was sanguine that the farmer would make up
for his losses in the past year. Potatoes however
came in earlier than usual from the Southern
States, and glutted the markets of the North.
Large shipments of unmerchantable onions were
made from Bermuda to some point South of New
York, whence they soon found their way into the
New York Market, and had the damaging effect of
bringing down the good onions in that market to
ruinous prices. These circumstances, together with
the fact that money was very scarce and the labor
market consequently very dull, (thousands being out
of employment,) and the very large stock of Madei-
ra onions of last season on hand, which were sold
very cheap, and greedily bought up by all classes
with the cheap Southern, potatoes, caused a serious
falling off in prices, and a consequent disappoint-
ment in the hoped for paying returns on the entire
Bermuda crops. We can only hope that with a ju-
dicious management in the shipment of our pro-
duce, the coming season and an absence of the un-
fortunate combination of circumstances met with in
the New York Market last year, we shall have
handsome returns as a set off against our losses in
After a hasty glance over, and giving a necessa-
rily brief summary of the prominent events in the
history of the year just gone, we close our abstract
with the heartfelt wish that the threatening war
cloud that hangs so heavily over Europe may dis-
perse in peace, and that instead of the horrors of
war sounding throughout the world, we shall have
the pleasure of heralding that the plowshare has
taken the place of the sword, and that the land
teams with a plentiful harvest to gladden the
hearts of the poor.
