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."

BALL ON BOARD H. MT. S. "3ELLERO-
PHON."
Captain Fisher, R.N., and the Officers of H.M.S.
Bellerophon," on Thursday evening last enter-
tained a large number of the people of Bermuda
and of Military and Naval Officers, on board that
magnificent ship, at a Ball and Supper.
Balls on board ship have not been very common
of late years in consequence, not of any falling off
in the hospitable and social tastes and habits of H.
M's Navy, but, we presume, of the difficulties of
travelling by water, and the uncertainty which al-
ways attends our weather in the winter and spring.
On this occasion however the arrangements for
the conveyance of the guests from Hamilton and
Somerset were most complete and excellent, and
the boating to and from the great ship was made to
add to the pleasure of the entertainment, instead of
detracting from it. The weather too seconded the
0 efforts of the hosts to have everything as pleasant
as possible. It was a beautiful night. Not a cloud
was seen, and the young moon and the fresh breeze
added greatly to the charms of the excursion.
On approaching the great ship the guests found
every arrangement made for their comfort which
the ready resources of the blue jackets could de-
sire. A platform level with the water's edge re-
ceived them from the side of the barge, and the
landing place with the stair case, was framed in a
canopy and inclosed in walls of many colored
; flags, which formed in fact a commodious apart-
ment, brilliantly lighted up. The Flag Ship indeed
d presented from stem to stern a noble and beautiful
sight, and was itself a splendid spectacle.
S On deck the guests were received with that
d courtesy which, if it does not distinguish at least,
characterizes the Naval service all the world over.
The quarter deck was covered in and festooned
and draped with flags of all nations, and similar
s awnings and festoons covered in the poop deck,
which formed a capital dress circle for those who
s merely looked on, or for the more active members of
the party during brief intervals between the dances,
1 as well as a spacious second ball room for those'who
4 preferred it to the quarter deck.
The Bellerophon Band furnished excellent music
'9 during the whole right with brief intervals of rest.
The quarter deck was alive with dancers, and on
every vantage ground there were crowds of specta-
tors enjoying a scene which few present could have
seen paralleled.
; His Honor the Acting Governor and Mrs. Morri-
son, Admiral Sir Cooper Key and his family, and
Capt. Somerset, R.N., A.D.C., and Mrs. Somerset
; were present, and stayed to a late hour. Many other
Military and Naval Officers enlivened the scene
with their handsome uniforms, of which there was
; an unusual variety from the circumstance of the
'3 Troopship Simoom lying close by, with a large
number of Detachments from various Regiments
r. and Corps in the West Indies on their way home.
Below, the supper tables were loaded with a most
luxurious repast, and the variety of ornamental
dishes which covered them reminded one sof ,those
ay creations of art which one sometimes sees at a first
er rate London pastry cook's. But a ruthless attack
D, from hundreds of guests made marvellous havoc
J. among the elaborate structures of the chef de cuisine.
._ Here and everywhere Captain Fisher and his Of-
ficers displayed a bountiful and elegant hospitality.
n The party assembled about 9 and broke up pune-
s. tually at 2. Sparkling eyes were soon quenched in
el well-earned slumbers, and flushed cheeks were
cooled by the healthy breeze. About the dreams
ce we can give no authentic information; but rumour
V. has it that there were many floating visions of blue
and scarlet and gold and of roses and lilies, and soft
whisperings and sweet memories, which rosy-fin-
gered morn had not the heart to interrupt.
1. But it was not left to the young and lovely only
r, to bring away pleasant memories of the hospitality
and courtesy of the gallant hosts. The night of
or the 17th May is a night to be remembered even by
l those whose recollections run back over hundreds of
rd pleasant entertainments in these Islands. But not
the youngest who was present then will, we be-
[t- lieve, live to see a more brilliant spectacle.

A CRUISING RACE, steered by Ladies only, was sailed
ry on Friday last. There were six boats entered but only
three started, the Undine. Nautilus and Nameless. The
id Course was from a stake boat moored opposite the
Club Steps, through the Salt Kettle Passage, round
h, Grace's, Tucker's and Morgan's Islands, leaving them
x on the Starboard hand, and back through the Head of
; the Lane to the Stake Boat. The wind was moderate
.; from the North West and the day everything that
u could be desired for a Ladies' Race. The Undine was
steered by Mrs. Gordon, the Nautilus by Miss Grace
ea Gosling and the Nameless by Mrs. Morrison. The
course was estimated at about twelve miles and the
ss Undine received from the Nautilus twenty-nine seconds
and from the Nameless one minute and seventeen sec-
.. ends. The three boats being so nearly of a size made
Sof course an excellent race, which resulted in a victory
s for the Undine which came in a little more than a
* minute ahead of the Nautilus, the Nameless being
e. about two minutes behind the Nautilus. The latter
rw boat mistook the course and left Pearl Island on the
Starboard Hand unnecessarily, which considerably
,u lengthened the distance she sailed.
i., The next race will be on Friday the 1st June from
a' the Camber round the North Rock and back. Entries

e- close on Friday next.
to
as We have been informed that a statement has
s. been made by some of the New York papers to
the effect that the British Government intend
r'' immediately to connect Nova Scotia with these
Islands by a Telegraph wire. We have not seen


the notice ourselves, but have no reason to doubt
ts that such a statement has appeared. We know
m that the question has been under consideration by
Her Majesty's Government and the costs fully
ad considered; and further that should nothing of
E. importance occur to prevent it, the work may soon
be commenced.
Ln The soundings obtained by H. M. S. Challenger,
when cruising in this part of the Atlantic fully
s' proved the practicability of laying a cable for tele-
graphic purposes either between these Islands and
t. Halifax, N.S.,' or the West Indies-say Antigua,
as that Island is the nearest of the group. The
plateau between Bermuda and Halifax, however,
"' offers the greatest facilities.
s, With this important naval and military station
the Imperial Government should never be without
n, prompt communication, and the facilities which an
electric telegraph link would afford in that respect
g, are beyond question.

DIVISION ON MR. GLADSTONE'S RESO-

In the House of Commons on the night of the
C. 14th instant, Mr. Gladstone's resolutions were re-
jected by a vote of 854 to 223, and the amendment
ed offered by Sir Henry Wolff, Conservative, to the
effect that the House declines to entertain any
ik resolution which may embarrass the Government
in its maintenance of peace and the protection of
British intei ests, without indicating any alternative
line of policy," was adopted without a division.


MEETING OF THE COLONIAL PARLIAMENT.-It will
be noticed by a Proclamation of His Honor the Acting s
Governor, in the official column of our to-day's Ga- e
zette, that, the Colonial Parliament is to meet in the ,
Town of Hamilton on Thursday the 31st instant, for
the despatch of public business.

We are gratified to learn that General Lefroy and
Family reached New York hence in good health,
and would leave for Canada in a few days.
We understand that General Laffan, R.E., our newly
appointed Governor, may be expected to arrive in Ber-
muda about the last week in June.

The body of a new bh rn black male child was found on
Saturday morning by a man named Isaac J. Raynor,
secured among the rocks on the west side of Sandys
Parish. Raynor had been looking for drifts when his
,attention was drawn by seeing something like a bundle
of clothes and on examination he found the child wrap-
ped in some, old garments. .It ws in an advanced
stage of decomposition and had evidently been placed
there'some 8 orl ,i''y' previously.
The body of John 'Woods. who, was .drowned in the
Gr(at Sound on the 12th instant (particula-s of which
appeared in our last issue), was discovered, lying among
tie rocks at One Rock Passage on Friday the 18th
inst.
A very melancholy death by drowning occurred in
this Harbor on -Saturday last. A sore boat contain-
ing two men in tow of Ameiican schooner l'ii',,.,i
Rulan, was by some means dragged under water and
then turned over. One man named Harford was res-
cued by the pilot of the yacht rins, Mr. A. TV Simmons,
assisted by some gentlemen in the yacht; but the other
poor fellow, named Charles Henry Wilson, sank when
almost within reach of those in the Iris. No blame is
attached to the schooner.
Inquisitions on all the above cases were held by
Charles C. Keane, Esgr., Coroner,..on Saturday the
19th instant, when verdicts in accordance with the facts
in each case, were returned. ,

Arrival of the English Mail of 1st
l +May.
The R. M. Steamet Alpha, Captain Warden, with
the English Mail of the first instant, arrived at St.
George on Friday, last and left same afternoon
for St. Thomas. Th'be Alpha will.probably be back
from St. Thomas on'Monday next, 28th May.
We are indebted 'to Captain Warden, and other
friends for Halifax papers of the 14th, in addition
to our customary exchange files.

Very Late from and Europe.
The Mail Steamer Bermuda, Captain Angrove
has arrived. She left New York at 4 p.m. of the"
17th instant and anchored at her wharf in this Town
at half-past 12 o'cl6ck on Sunday making the pas-
sage from wharf to wharf in 68 hours.
We are indebted 4to Captain Angrove, Mr. Purser
Miles, Mr. Rule 1st Officer, Mr. Ritchie, for late
files, and to'Matsoqn Williams, Esqr., fora copy of

THE RUSSIAN 'L*T IN NEW YoRK.:-The New.'
York Commercial Advertiser of the 17th says :-"The
Russian fleet started this morning, presumably ia
search of something to devour. TLe public will
await with some curiosity the next tidings from
these sailors, as there are certain little circumstan-
ces connected with their7departure which may be of
great interest to the American people.'?
It is believed thai the Fleet is gone for the pur-
pose of intercepting vessels leaving the Northern
States for Turkey'with munitions of war, which
have been invariably 'carried by British, steam-
ers. .
The Russian Corvettes Bayan, Albrecht, and
Osadnick, had left San Francisco under 'sealed or-
ders, though it is gien out they return to Siberian
stations.
The City of Brussels, (the missing steamer from
New York to Liverpool,) was fallen'in with by the
City of Richmond o tihe 7th May about 1,800 mile
westward of the Fastnet Light, proceeding under
canvas, having broken her shaft on the 23rd April.
All well on board.

THE LIGHT HOiuE on St. David's Island, or at least
the Tower for the Light, is we are informed by a Gen-
tleman who visited St. David's Island on Tuesday last,
all but completed., He spoke highly of the apparent
substantiality and perfection of the work and considered
it most creditable to the builder. "It now remains
for the Legislature to decide on the descrip ionr of
light which is to be placed on the tower. We are cre-
dibly informed that all descriptions of lanterns suita-
ble for the purpose have advanced quite forty per cent
within the past few years.

THE TOMB OF SIR GEORGE SOMERS.


History tells us that the heart and bowels of
the gallant old Admiral Sir George Somers,' whose
latter days were so intimately connected with the
first settlement of these Islands,-whose name they
bear and whose adventurous life terminated here-'
were interred in the Town of St. George. Tradi-
tion pointed out a narrow enclosure at the lower
side of the Government house garden as the spot,
and here Governor Butler, serving under the Com-
pany, is said to have about the year 1622 erected
a monument over the grave, but nothing but a
mutilated slab of a coarse description of stone with-
out any record engraven upon it, was found.
In 1819 Admiral Sir David Milne, with "the
Mayor and Magistrates of St. George," Williams,
the Historian tells us, "repaired to the place and
opened the. vault, but found nothing but the

fragments of an opaque glass bottle, some decayed
bones and a pebble." A subscription was project-
ed at the time for enclosing this place, and erect"-
ing a suitable memorial, but it was' never accom-
plished.
It remained for our late philanthropic Governor,
General Lefroy, of himself to maik the spot where
the heart, &c., of Sir George Somers, are believed
to have been deposited, and having communicated
his desire to the Corporation of St. George, who
readily acquised. The wall of the Garden has
been carried back, and an arch formed over the
tomb, and a marble Tablet, bearing the following
inscription in Roman Capitals, is placed immediately
above the arch:-

WAS INTERRED IN THE YEAR 1611.

CAUSED THIS TABLET TO BE ERECTED
1876,


THE WAR NEWS is anything but reliable. The
evere fighting reported at Dobrudscha is unfound-
d. The London Times of last Thursday, says:-
: No engagements have occurred between the Rus-
ians and Turks in Europe except on the line of
batteries between Ibrail and Ismail. The question'
LoW being discussed here is whether the Rouma-
Lian army shall cross the Danube with the Russians
or simply remain on their own' soil to protect the
ines of communication. Although a majority of
he members of the Government are at present op-
posed to the passage of the river, it is extremely
probable that the more active and determined mem-
bers of the war party will finally prevail."
In France, it will be noticed by our extracts, a
change of Ministry has taken place, which may be
attended with much trouble in that country. Pre-
sident M. Simon having assumed more power than
was considered by Marshal MacMahon to be con-
sistent with his position, was called on by the latter
to resign his office, which he did, and the resigna-
tion of the other members of the Ministry" quickly
followed. In forming a new Cabinet General
MacMahom will doubtless avoid as much as possi-
ble the Radical Republican element.
TROUBLE IN NEWFOUNDLAND WITH THE FRENCH
RELATIVE TO THE FisuERIis.-The London Tele-
graph's Paris despatch of the 15th instant says the
nation of the Governor of Newfoundland in forbid-
ding the French to fish for herring has been a sub-
ject of complaint by the French Cabinet, but the
English Government supports the Governor; hence
the interchange of unsal.isfactory diplomatic notes.
LONDON, May 16.-The campaign along the Dan-
ube opened actively yesterday at several points. A
great concentration of Russian troops is 1aki6g place
at Laarnu-Magureh, at which point the Eigbtb and
12th 'Russian army corps will probably cross the Dan-
ube, thereby turning the Bulgarian quadrilateral.
T'he Seventh and Eleventh corps will invade the
Dobin ds.eha. It is even stated that these corps,
with cavalry and artillery, have already crossed at
Potbachb in t'he Dobrudscha, and that an engage-
ment is now in progress. '1 he Russian front will be
covered by ten regiments of Cossacks. The inun-
dations have now decreased in the Biila Valley, and
6,000 tr66ps are marching down. The, Russian
army for actual operations now numbers nine corps.
Only two are destined for" the Dobrudscha. The
main body, according to military calculations, will
cross near Oiurgevo and move southeast, toward
Yarna.. Further confirmation of the Russian
crossing seems to be contained in a Daily Telegraph
special, dated Matchin, Monday, which says:-
The Russians are apparently making an attempt
to cross the'Danube. Heavy artillery firing has
been going on up to the moment of my sending this
despatch. The Turks have been successful in re-
pelling the attack. The Russians are believed to be
in great force." The capture of. the Turkish gun-
boat which tried to pass Kalafat is confirmed. The
gunboat was forced to surrender near Kalafat be-
cause of a heavy fire from 'a battery.

SINKING OF A TURRISHMON1TOR BY THE
RUSSIANS
LONDON, May 14, 1877.-The HERALD correspon-
dent stationed at the Russian headquarters at Jassy-
telegraph's, under date of yesterday, full details of
the sinking of the Turkish monitor by the Russian
batteries before Ibrail on the' River"Danube. He
says that the entire Turkish flotilla, consisting of
several-heavy armed monitors and a few gunboats
of the first and second class, appeared before the
town of Ibrail, and on coming into position began
bombarding the place. The fire of the Turkish
vessels was at once returned by the Russian shore
batteries, and the artillery battle was soon a fierce
and deadly one and continued for some time. At
length two shells were fired from a piecd -i6n one of
the Russian batteries, under the direction of Com-
mandant Samailli, at one of the monitors having
two turrets and three masts and named the Louk-
fivelli (meaning "The-Grace of God'`). The ves-
sel fired at was at a distance of tw miles from'the
battery, yet both of the shells struck the monitor.
As.they fell the vessel seemed for a moment to be
rising out, of the water, and in less than a: minute
,after she sapk. There was no explosion, and the
m6nitor went down so suddenly that it is believed
that the fatal projectiles did not strike the powder
magazine, but fell into the hold, where they explod-
ed, no doubt tearing large holes in her. bottom, .the
waterrushing in so rapidly that she sank without any
warning. 200 persons were drowned.
The Russians go to her Aid.-As soon as the cat-
astrophe was comprehended in its fullest extent the
Russians made an effort to succour their enemies.
A boat was despatched from the shore to the" scene
of the wreck, in whilh-were an officer of the ma-
rines named Skoulew, an, Aide-de-Camp named
Ragoufla and Lieutenant Doubanoff. They were
unsuccessful in finding any of the officers and crew'
in the water, but Lieutenant Doubanoff had the
honor of capturing the flag of the sunken monitor.

THE FRENCH CRISIS-COMPLEXION OF
.... THE NEW CABINET. ".
LONDON, May 17.-The Times' correspondent at
Paris says: "President MacMahon's letter to M.
Jules Simon, which caused the latter to 'tender his
resignation, is one of the most serious, and perhaps
most fatal events since the fall of M. Thiers." The
correspondent recapitulates the repeated efforts of
the Right to bring about a collision between Presi-
dent MaeMahon and the Republicans, as President
MacMahon has several times declared that if the
Left sought to lead him too far he would form a
Right and dissolutionists cabinet.


LONDON, May 17.-The Standard's Port Said
special says the Hotspur is moored at the entrance
of the canal, the Devastation has taken up a position
commanding the mouth of the harbor, and the re-
mainder of the fleet is anchored two miles off the
shore, completely guarding the entrance of the
canal at Port Said,
The Russian Telegraph Agency in St. Peters-
burg, says the American officers in the service of
the Khedive have. refused to bear arms against
Russia. They will remain in Egypt,
A Hungarian legion is being formed at Pera.

THE WORLD'S COAL SUPPLY.
Recent inquiry into the distribution of coal has
proved that its stores are greater than was at one
time supposed. The following table, although in-
complete, will serve for purposes of comparison :
Production
Area in Square in 1874.
Miles. Tons.
Great Britain............. 11,900 125,070,000
Germany................. 1,800 46,658,000
United States............192,000 50,000,000
France...................... 1,800 17,060,000
Belgium.................... 900 14,670,000
Austria..................... 1,800 12,280,000
Russia...................... 11,000 1,392,000
Nova Scotia............... 18,000 1,052,000
Spain..................... 3,000 680,000
Other countries.......... 28,000 6,000,000


Total..................270,200


274,262,000


It thus appears that the total area of the discov-
ered coal-fields of the world exceeds 270,000 square
miles. In this country and in British North Ame-
rica there exists deposits of coal of extraordinary
magnitude. According to the report of the Coal
Commissioners published in 1871, there were then
90,207,000,000 tons of coal available in Great
Britain, ;at depths not greater than 4,000 feet, and
in seams not less than one foot thick, besides a
quantity of concealed coal estimated at 56,273,000,-
000 tons, making a total of over 146,480,000,000
tons. Since that period there have been raised
600,000,000 tons up to the close of 1875. The pre-
sent annual rate of consumption is nearly 132,000,-
000, and at this rate the coal deposits of that coun-
try will last over 1,000 years.
Dr. James H. Rigg, a leading English Wesleyan
minister, in an article in the International Review,
says that the Church of England has improved
vastly in the last 40 years. It has many more
churches, parsonages, schools, clergymen, and
trained agents, and does much more voluntary
work in the shape of home and foreign missions,
church extension, &c. He gives the following es-
timates of the adherents of the different Church
families in England and Wales: Established
Church, 13,000,000; Methodists, 4,200,000; Con-
gregationalists 2,100,000: Baptists, 1,500,000; Pres-
byterians, 260,000; Roman Catholics, 2,000,000;
all other denominations, 700,000; of no denomina-
tion, 250,000.
CURE FOR HYDROPHOBIA.-Tho recipe is that of
M. Cassar, a F;ench physician l Take two table-
spoonfuls of fresh chloride of lime, mix it with
half a pint of water, and with this wash keep the
wound constantly bathed and frequently renewed.
The chlorine gas possesses the power of decompo-
sing this tremendous poison, and renders mild and
harmless that venom against whose resistless at-
tack the artillery of medical science has been so
long directed in vain. It is necessary to add that
this wash should be applied as soon as possible after
the infliction of the bite. From 1810 to 1824, the
number of persons admitted into Breslau Hospital
was 184, of whom only 2 died; from 1783 to 1824,
there were admitted into the hospital at Zurich,
223 persons bitten by different animals (182 by
dogs) of whom,only 4 died.

RIGOLLOT'S


M7USTA1 AD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals of Pars, Field
and Military Hospital, by the
English Royal Navy and
the French National
Navy, &c.
To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few
moments a decided result with the smallest possible
quantity of tha remedy, are the problems which M.
Rigollot has solved in the most conclusive and sa-
tiafaetory manner. Rigollot's Sinapism in leaves
will, therefore, be found in every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer.
agency renders it an invaluable remedy for various
disorders.
(Signed) A. BOUCHARDAT
Annuaire thbripentique ann6e 1868, p. 204.
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot's Paper in cases
of great gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It in
in important Healing Agent. To children, weak,
and nervous persons, I strongly recommend the fol.
lowing method of graduating the action of the plans.
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.
Beware of Imitations.

Eau" of Dr. l oltz for
HAIR DYE.


I'IHIS WATKER is of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. lloLTz'S Hair Ilye has riot the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to the hair ar. 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 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.
