AT the request of the above mentioned So-
ciety, we beg respectfully to acquaint the
Public, that the only acknowledged P. arid W.
C. S., still exists under its only acknowledged
Master Mr. T. R. DARRELL, to whose able
management it owes its great success and its
popularity. Their unprecedented success has
caused the formation of another P. and W. 0.
S., (?), but the real P. and W. C. S. (so named
by ex-Governor J. H. Lefroy) needs not to assume
another's name to obtain patronage, for the fami-
liar faces of its members have been so often
seen that their patrons have only to witness
their reappearance to unanimously agree to their
honest claim to that name. The records of the
P. and W. C. S. (together with communications
and requisitions for professional attendance) in
our possession, will still further testify the
honesty of their claim.

I HER MAJESTY'S BIRTH DAY IN BERMUDA.

Her Majesty's Birth Day was kept last Friday, in
accordance with the official notice, and was observed as
o. holiday at the various Goverment Establishments in
these Islsads. Early in the day the Royal Standard
was displayed at the Royal IN aval Yard, at Mount Lang-
toni and at Fort Victoria, and from the Bellerophon,
the Flag ship of the Naval Commander-in- Chief.
All ofH. M. Ships at or near the Naval Yard were de-
rated with flags. The various Naval and military
Stations throughout the Colony, the Merchant ships
within our waters and all the Consulate and private
Staffs were adorned with colors.
At noon Royal Salutes were fired from the Flagship,
end by the Royal Artillery at Fort George.
The Troops at Prospect, consisting of the Royal En-
gineers and the 46th Regiment were drawn up in line
on the Cricket Ground at 11-45 a.m. for the inspection
of His Honor the Colonel Commanding, who after rid-
ing down the Line with his Staff took up his position
in rear. Vice Admiral Sir Cooper Key, K.C.B., the
Naval Commander-in-Chief with his Flag Lieutenant,
and a number of ladies and gentlemen were on the
ground. Precisely at 12 o'clock the Feu-de-joie com-
menced ; 3 rounds were fired, and a Royal Salute, witi
three eheers for Her Majesty, followed.
The Royal Engineers then changed front to the lefi
so as to bring them at right angles to their former
position. The Queen's Color was then Trooped by the
46th Regiment, and a very pretty sight it was, and one
not often seen in Bermuda. Lieut.-Colonel Bennett
the Commanding Officer of the 46th Regiment, acted
as Field Officer of the day, and the Trooping appeared
r to be admirably performed.
The Troops were then formed into line of Quarte:
d Columns preparatory to marching past.
His Honor the Colonel Commanding having taken
; up his position near to the Saluting Flag the Troop.
marched past in Column of Double Companies, ii
Mass of Quarter Columns, and finally in Line of Quar
1 ter Columns. After passing the Saluting Flag about
ts own depth the Brigade changed front to the Righ
on the 46th Regiment. and then advanced in Reviem
4 Order for a General Salute, after which the Troop

1 TRIBUTES TO REV. 0. PERENCIIIEF.

We have been handed copies of Resolutions of re
spect to the memory of the Rev. O. Perenchief, adopt
ed by the Vestries of the several churches over which]
a he has had charge. Not having space for them all, w
select the following which is from the Vestry of Chris
- Church (Swede's) his last charge, adopted at a meeting
a held on May 2.
d The Reverend O. Perenchief was a native of Ber
muda.

Resolved, That by the death of our dear pastor


Rlev. uctavius erencier, the rrotestant Jipiscopa
church has lost one of her brightest ornaments, Swede'
church the dearest friend that ever ministered to th,
spiritual welfare of her people, the congregation sus,
training a loss that will be long and keenly felt. No
only his own parishioners but the community at largi
will miss his ready co-operation and kindly words ii
all that concerned their welfare.
Resolved, That he was in full measure a clergyman
a true and sincere expounder of the rich treasures o
the gospel; that in his life we had found a character
full of beauty and nobleness. Only those who ha<
enjoyed his ministry and abiding friendship can ap
preciate his loss. He loved his people, was intimate,
with every member of the congregation, visiting then
daily in their homes, sympathizing in their trouble
helping them in their need, fulfilling all obligation
faithfully and conscientiously, and performing hi
work with an intensity rarely witnessed. lNothinf
apparently escaped his eye. His manner was irresis
tible. To all he had kind wordso-Lcheer aud hope
and by his genial courtesy rich and poor were stimu
lated to greater activity. To all he listened patiently
affectionately and attentively, and to all gave goo<
advice gently but with an appropriateness that en
deared him to all.
"1-in his duty prompt at every call,
He watched and wept, he pray'd and felt for all."
Resolved, That in Mr. Perenchiel education had on-
of its warmest defenders, an earnest champion, h
never wearied in urging its importance, and sough
to impress upon all the need of acquiring knowledge
I every measure inaugurated to promote it met wit]
his unqualified approval, and he was constantly ac,
tive in devising means to save those who had neve
enjoyed the advantages of religious care, or school
culture. His broad, catholic spirit embraced th
needs of humanity regardless of creed, sect or nation
ality, and like the Apostle Paul he was unwearyin
in his efforts to lilt up the fallen, and by precept am
example to lead all in the pathway trod by the Di
vine Master.
Resolved, That we who enjoyed the privilege o
listening to his teachings should treasure the sacred<
memories that cluster around his ministrations, anm
so apply them that our hearts may be purified mor(
and more until all are prepared to join him, when
parting shall be no more..
Resolved, That our heartfelt sympathies are extend.
ed to the sorrowing home-circle in their sad bereve
ment.
Resolved, That the church be draped in mourning
for the period of three months.

WAR NEWS.
From the New York Herald, May 24.
The dearth of stirring news from the seats of war
in the East suggests the calm before the storm that
must soon break in thunderous uproar from many
points along the Danube Valley as well as in Asia
Minor. The secresy with which the Russian move-
ments are surrounded gives little chance to specu-
late with any approach to accuracy. Great move-
ments are so often made only as a mask for greater
that the massing of large bodies of troops in West.
ern Roumania must not be regarded as a reliable
indication that the grand advance is to take place
from that region. It is certain, however, that the
coming week will witness great events and will
supply important material for history. The Turk-
ish fleet continues its incendiary industry along the
eastern shores of the Black Sea, and also menaces
the south coast of Russia. But we notice that a
Russian threat to the Bey of Tunis, which may be
executed by the Czar's fleet, is agitating the Sul-
tan's vassal in 'Africa. The departure of the Sul-
tan to take the co mand of the Army of the Dan-
ube in prosecuting the holy war has been decided
on. In Asia M or Batoum has been invested
by the Russians, and according to our latest des-
patches, a sanguinary battle is in progress for the
possession of the town. The Cossacks scour the
country on Mouhktar Pacha's right, completely
cutting him off from any supports from the south,
and everything points to the probability of a dis-
perate battle in fRont and on both flanks of the
Souganlu position, now occupied by that command-
er. Kars may be said to be entirely isolated now,
for the flying Turk.sh garrison from Ardahan could
not seek refuge within its fortifications. In the
meantime fanatical rage rules the discussions of the
Turkish Parliament.

FRANCE.-A despatch from Paris, discussing
the difficulties between the President of the-Repub-
lic and the Legislature, states that France will
pronounce overwhelmingly against President Mac-
Mahon at the elections, even if the Senate gives a
majority in favor of dissolution, which is very
doubtful. The refusal of the Senate to authorise a
dissolution would, inevitably, cause MacMahon's
resignation.
The buke Decazes has issued a circular protes-
ting against the supposition that the new Ministry
entertains any idea of departing from neutrality, or
tolerating manifestations of any party in France
against foreign Powers.
In the Italian Chamber of Deputies at Rome yes-
terday Ministers Melegari and Depretis, replying
to interpellations relative to relations .between
France and Italy, made the most reassuring state-
ments to the effect that the cordial relations of the
two countries have not been affected by the recent
events in France,

POSITION OF OUTSIDE NATIONS.


BERLIN, May 29.-The North German Gazette
states that Russia has declared to Tunis that if
military or pecuniary aid is rendered to the Sultan
the Bey must prepare to see his capital bombarded.
The Tunis Government is also disquieted by the
concentration of a French force on the frontier,
SLONDON, May 28.-A Vienna dispatch to the
Daily Telegraph announces that the Austrian Gov-
ernment's attention is riveted on the increasing
agitation in Hungary. There is eager clamour for
war among all classes.
The Times' Vienna dispatch says: "The declar-
ation of Roumanian independence has produced
very little impression here. As for the attitude
likely to be taken by the Powers, no conclusion has
yet been formed. None of them are likely to give
an opinion before placing themselves in communi-
cation with the others and ascertaining their views."
A Vienna dispatch says; "The St. Petersburg
Cabinet has expressed adhesion to the views of the
Austrian Government that the impediment of na-
vigation on the Danube should only last as long as
it is made absolutely necessary on account of mili-
tary operations. No doubt is entertained that the
Porte will likewise accede to the views of the Vien-
na Cabinet."
The Daily News' Bucharest dispatch reports that
at 6 o'clock on Tuesday morning the Turks fired
from Rahova at an Austrian steamer, which, after
several shots, caught fire.
A Vienna dispatch to the News says: "From
Cettinje it is announced that Montenegro has post-
poued the recommencement of hostilities until the
Russians have actually crossed the Danube."
The Times' Bucharest correspondent says: It is
believed that Russia will first recognize the inde-
pendence of Roumania, and that Germany, France,
and Italy will follow. England and Austria are
expected to delay recognition."
The Standard's Vienna dispatch says : "The
Servian Police yesterday removed placards on the
walls in Belgrade, threatening Prince Milan's ex-
pulsion unless he renews the war. The general
opinion in Vienna is he will do so when the Rus-
sians cross the Danube,,"


A Raguta dispatch says : Several Miridite in.-
surrectionary leaders were arrested near Glinbigne
by the Turks, while on their way to Montenegro to
concert common action with the Prince. There is
great excitement in the Miridite.
An Athens dispatch says "I The British Mediter-
ranean Squadron is expected at the Pirmsus to-mor-
row."
LOND6ON May 24.-The Standard's correspondent
at Belgrade reports that the Government has order-
ed the formation of 12 new battalions. All the re-
serves of the sedentary army are summoned to as-
semble and all troops are ordered to present themsel-
ves on or before May 29, fully armed. Prince Milan
will not go to Bucharest until after the next meeting
of the Skuptschina.
The question is being discussed in Vienna whe-
ther it is not advisable to incorporate Bosnia, Her-
zegovina, and Servia into one State under an Aus-
trian Archduke.
The Greek Minister at Vienna has given the most
decided assurances that the rumours that Greece is
to join in the war are unfounded.
The Times' special from Belgrade confirms the
Standard's report of Servia's military preparations.
The Times' Bucharest correspondent telegraphs
as follows: The Grand Duke Nicholas has been
stopping here some days, and it is asserted that he,
during that time, has remarked that he intends to
enter Constantinople to make the Turks feel that
they are crushed, although he does not intend to re-
tain the city. There is a firm belief here among
well-informed persons that a tacit, if not clearly-
defined, understanding exists between Russia, Ger-
many and Italy, and that the Court party in Austria
is.in accord with the other Eastern potentates. The
Hungarian element is, of course, hostile, but utter.
ly powerless to oppose such a coalition. Maiy
incidents may be construed into confirmation of the
above belief, the most important, perhaps, being th9
peremptory closing of the Danube navigation by
the Russians after the Turks had promised to allow
uninterrupted neutral commerce and the recently
developed movement of Russian troops westward of
the positions beyond which the anti-Russian element
of Europe bad virtually decided they should not
go without remonstrance.
The Times' Berlin dispatch has the following:
It is pretty universally believed at St. Petersburg
that the Russian Government would not object to
Constantinople and the Suez Canal being placed
under the protection of England, provided Russia
is allowed to protect Roumania, Bulgaria and Mon-
tenegro and annex the vilayet of Erzeroum."
VIENNA, May 23.-The question is now raised
whether the 20 Austrian divisions mobilized might
not seize Belgrade and Semendria, It is rumored
that serious differences have arisen between Count
Andrassy and the Archduke Albrecht.

The Times stated a few days back that the under-
mentioned regiments have been placed on a roster
for immediate departure for service abroad, should
their services be required :-Cavalry-4th, 5th and
6th Dragoon Guards, 1st and 2nd Dragoons, 8th
Hussars, and 17th Lancers. Artillery-E. Brig.
R.H.A., 3rd Brig. Garrison Artillery, and 24th and
25th Brig. R.A. Infantry-Ist Batn. 1st Foot, 2nd
Batn. 2nd Foot, 2nd Batn. 4th Foot, 2nd Batn. 5th
Foot, 2nd Batn. 6th Foot, 2nd Batn. 8th Foot, 2nd
Batn. 10th Foot, 2nd Batn. 13th Foot, 2nd Batn.
14th Foot, 2nd Batn. 18th Foot, 1st Batn. 19th
Foot, 2nd Batn. 21st Foot, 2nd Batn. 24th Foot,
26th Foot, 29th Foot, 30th Foot, 38th Foot, 41st
Foot, 47th Foot, 49th Foot, 52nd Foot, 58th Foot,
* 1st and 3rd Batns. 60th, 61st,'75th, 78th, 84th, 86th,
88th, 90th, 91st, 93rd, 94th, 95th, 96th, 99th and
100th Foot, the stand 3rd -Batns. Rifle Brigade,
also the 2nd Batn. Grenadier Guards, 2nd Batn.
Coldstream Guards, and 1st Batn. Scots Guards.
The reply of Mr Hardy to an inquisitive member
in the House respecting the above statement may
be regarded as strictly official, but there is nothing
more likely than the selection of these-regiments if
the services of a force of all arms should be requir-
ed abroad. The number of Cavalry regiments
would be increased.
The Whitehall Review says, Information has
reached the Colonial Office of the departure of Col.
Sir William Jervois, K.C.M.G., O B., R E., the
Governor of the Straits Settlements, from Singa-
pore on April 2, in the steamer Normanby, for
Australia, whither, as we lately announced, he pro.
ceeds to inspect and report upon the defence works.
Col. A. E. H. Anson, C.M.G., R.A., had arrived
from Penang and taken over duty as Acting-Gov-
ernor in Sir William's absence. Lady Jervois does
not accompany her husband, but will, with her
daughters, pay a visit to England, attended by
Capt. Paton, his Excellency's aide-de-camp. From
all sides Lord Carniarvon is receiving assurances of
'the' great popularity of Sir William Jervois and his
amiable wife, and of the benefits the Settlement has
received from Sir William's ability and zealous la-
bours in its interests."

Five vessels are loading at Woolwich with ord-
nance stores for Portsmouth, where a large supply
of warlike materials, barrack necessaries and camp
furniture .has already been sent. Another large
steamer is embarking iron forts and other cargo
for Malta.
The Observer, says a joint purse agreement has
been concluded between the Anglo-American and
the Direct Cable companies. It will shortly be
submitted to meetings of the respective sharehold-
ers. .


THE PROPOSED SUSPENSION OP COAL 'MINING.-
President Sloan, of the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Railroad; Dickson, of the Delaware and
Hudson Canal Company; Receivers Clarke, of the
Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Company, and La-
throp, of the Central New Jersey Railroad; Vice-
President Keim, of the Philadelphia and Reading
Railroad; Vice-President Hoyt and Secretary
Mead, of the Pennsylvannia Coal Company, and
Messrs. Linderman and Sayre, of the Lehigh Val-
ley Railroad, held a private conference of about an
hour Monday afternoon in the office of the Dela-
ware and Hudson Canal Company, and unanimous-
ly adopted the following:-
It is hereby resolved that from June 15 to July
15 therd shall be a total suspension of mining, on
condition that the Reading Railroad Company ap-
prove of this resolution.
President Qowen, of the Reading Railroad, is
now in Europe, and the presidents of the other
companies have been in correspondence with him
in reference to a suspension. It was stated by an
officer of one of the companies that a cable dis-
patch had been received from Mr. Gowen, stating
-that he had forwarded his views in a letter, which
is expected within a few days. The result of Mon-
day's meeting was to be communicated to President
Gowen by cable.

Mr. G. 0. Whitney, of Southampton, kindly sent
us a basket of very fine Peaches on Saturday last,
the first we have seen this season. We are pleased
to find that Mr. W. has succeeded in preserving his
trees.

We are indebted to Captain Mayor and Mr.
Steward Wilson of Excelsior, and Mr. Williams

BATOUM, May 18.-Afternoon.--The Russians
in the vicinity of Tchurukson have sacked and
burnt all the villages and massacred the women old
men and children.


Colonel Meares, of H. M. 20th Regiment, forwarded
to a friend in Bermuda by the last mail boat the'following
in reference to a new preparation of Paraffin Oil, for the
purpose of mixing with manure for the protection of
Root Crops against worms, grubs, &c. Our farmers,
have suffered much the past season from insects,
and the article alluded to not being very costly
may prove a blessing to our Agriculturists and others.
It is exceedingly gratifying to find that persons in the
position in which Colonel Meares held while here
should, after his departure from our shores, never (pro-
bably to return), continue to take an interest in
its welfare as evinced by this act. In the letter alluded
to he speaks of the many happy days both he aud-'Mrs.
Meares, spent in Bermuda, and thfe numerous lasting
friends, which they made whilst here.
TO AGRICULTURISTS AND OTHERS.
ToP DRESSING PARAFFIN OIL.
This Oil is in good demand for the purpose'ofmixing
with Manure, &c., for Top Dressing, and is invaluable
for the protection of every description of RQoI Crops
against worms, grubs, insects, &e., it having been
proved that where land hasbeen dressed with Manure,
mixed with just sufficient Paraffin Oil, to give a strong
odour of the Oil, its effect is excellent-grubs,'&c.,
quickly disappearing from the field where the Oil has
been laid. Upon land that does not want fertilizers,
but which may be troubled with vermin; the Oil is
mixed with sand or earth, and then scattered over it.
I do not, however, recommend the Oil to be laid on
grazing land.
This Oil has been prepared for this purpose only, and
will not burn in Lamps.

A land Crab, of about 24 inches between extremes,
captured in the garden of N. A. Bascome, Esgr., Port
Royal, on Saturday last, was brought to our Office yes-
terday. Young ducks and chickens in the garden had
disappeared most unaccountably, and on the above day
a man and woman met the crab and were awfully
frightened as he approached them, with his extended
claw wide open; the man ran for his life, but the wo-
man took up a large stone and struck the crab on its
back and checked its Drogress; it was soon killed. It
had two large claws, but one some six times as large
as the other.

........., in this town, on 24th inst., the WIPE of Mr.
R. Gorham,of a SoN.

DIED, at his residence in this Town, early on the
'morning of Wednesday last, after a brief illness, M2. J.
BENSON STEED, in the 42nd year of his age, leaving
a wife, five children, mother, brother and many other
relations and friends to mourn their loss.
Mr. Steed has upwards of twenty years runa mall
and passenger boat between the Town of Hamilton
and the Royal Naval Yard, Ireland Island, anhd by his
obliging disposition, faithfulness in the discharge
of his numerous obligations and ibis punctuality, he
had earned the respect and confidence not only of the
residents of Hamilton anid Ireland Island but of the
inhabitants generally, for he was known to all. No
better proof of this fact could be given than by the
very large attendance at his funeral on Thursday lIast,
not only was each parish but every class .was wel re-
presented. : .
His ability as a boatman, could riot be surpassed,
and persons travelling with Mr. Steed in hii boat
the .Union, under all. circumstances of weather never
felt the least apprehension for their safety. His plaice
in this community cannot easily be filled. We may
meet with men as clever boatman, as honest in prin-
eiple and as obliging in manners, but to meet with a man
combiinng all these characteristics a they Were
found in Mr. Steed, we scarcely think it probable.

acter.

f VHE rumour made by one concerning the
,A- leaking of the Boats Narragansett and
Rhode Islahd (better known as Boneta and
Alabama) IS 0OT TRUE. The Rhode Island by
accident sprang a leak, which caused several
barrelr-of potatoes, belonging to Mr. Boggs,
to get wet-such. an accident is likely to hap-
peg to any boat: but as the rumour adds that
the Boneta was leaking as bad, the statement
is false. The fact is I had to bail the water
out of my boats, but if they had pumps in
them, as has the Gleaner, no one would know
how much water she made.' This report was
made for the purpose of preventing persons
giving me freight, and would likely cause
another boat to get more. But I am thank-
ful to say that for the last two years, I have
received .a due share qf favour from the Mer-
chants as well as the Farmers, and have done
my best, through sobriety and punctuality
to please them all. I will say no more, but
if in, any way I have not done my business
ihonestly--please borredt me.

BLUE GLASS.
BY AN M. D.
It appears to be necessary to the happiness of man
that he have a hobby. Sensation after sensation springs
up and dies away, bubble after bubble is blown and
bursts, reed after reed is leant on and breaks and yel
it seems never to strike the popular mind that the
next bubble will also burst, and the next reed also
break.
It is perfectly needless for us to ask with Dundreary,
Why is thus thus, and whence this thusness." There
are always problems which transcend the highest hu-
man understanding, and many that fail to be solved
because the solution is so easy that we step over it.
There are always enough fools in the world to make
a foolish thing pay, and many whom we usually class
as wise seem to get infatuated and join the ranks of
the fools, thereby lending the weight of their influ-
ence to the wrong side.
Of course when the thing bursts every one is aston-
ished at his being taken in' and yet probably to- morrow
he will be just as gullible.
A few months ago the rage was '' Blue glass." In
New York almost every one had the Fever. Passing
down Fifth Avenue you could see in almost every
house some one or other window checkered according
to directions. in those houses where no blue glass
was visible you might almost stake a considerable sum
that it existed behind. In the lower parts of the city,
where the fabulous price of the article put its posses-
sion beyond the poor man's reach, you might still see
fragments of a pane of the coveted hue substituted for
the bundle of rags which had before eked out the
window.
Fifth Avenue Theatre put a play on the boards en-
titled 'Blue Glass,' and though the play was a miser-
able production yet its name gave it a lease of life it
certainly did not deserve.
Editors of newspapers declared that they had, be( n
martyrs to chronic rheumatism for years and had in-
voked the aid ot all specifics without relief, but now
they sat in their office coatless, without fear of 'catch-
ing cold,' bathed in rays from the purest mazarin.
Women, who spat up in their own estimation at least
a teacupful of blood per diem, after a few blue baths
ceased to expectorate the precious fluid and became
plump and well. Men with glossy pates from which
every vestige of hair had disappeared years before and
whose scalps had since been vainly tortured by every
imaginable application now sat meekly exposing the
luminous orb to the invigorating ray, and credulously
pestered their wives to examine daily and see whether
this new panacea was to be successful.
Reports of marvellous cures appeared from every
quarter and it seemed as though this discovery' trans-
cending in importance even that of the Morse tele-
graph and doing no discredit to those of Franklin
himself' must render the world once more a perfect
Elysium and cause all compounders of drugs and
prescribers of pills to forsake their avocations as no
longer of use.
What do you think of Blue Glass 2?" became one
of the prime subjects of conversation, and often the
question was poked at members of the medical pro-
fession in cruel anticipation of hearing groans ascend
from their empty pockets.
We have often had the question presented to us
and generally in this form. "What do you think of
blue glass-a humbug eh ?" Now strange as it may
appear we have never absolutely consigned it to the
list of humbugs, though from its abuse it comes very
near deserving such a place.
There is no doubt that cures have been effected un-
der blue glass-but the sun had much more to with the
cure than the glass. General Pleasanton, to whom
the blue glass trade is indebted for such a fillip,' pre-
tends to give a scientific reason for these cures in the
action of the blue color on the ray. The General is
evidently not a scientific man. His experiments and
researches have ever been loosely made and bear the
stamp of the tyro on every part of them. To any one
interested in the matter we would advise a perusal of
his book, having first accumulated much patience be-
fore attempting the task.
On the first page of his book General Pleasanton
states that the blue rays of the sun give 'the least
light of any of the luminous prismatic radiations, but
the largest quantity of solar heat.'
This is simply not the fact! Let us split up a ray
of sunlight by a prism, and we get the seven primary
colors in the following order from left to right.
Red Orange-Yellow-Green-Blue-Indigo -
Violet.
The Red possesses the heat quality. The Orange
and Yellow and perhaps the Green, the light quality,
while Blue and its compounds Indigo and Violet are
exclusively actinic, or energetic. Hence we see the
General's theory about the heat contained in the blue
rays is untenable and false. Again he suggests that as
the sun's rays strike the blue glass all the rays except
the blue and its compounds are deflected and only they
pass through. This again is not so for by an experiment
it can easily be shewn that all the rays of the spec-
trum pass through except the light rays, Orange and
Yellow.
In another passage he speaks of blue glass rays be-
ing so much hotter than clear glass rays. This is
purely imagination and the thermometer which favors
no party decides that there is as much as 3 difference
in favor of white glass. The blue glass itself, will be
the hotter of the two because it absorbs and retains
heat while the white glass only transmits it but by
so much is the ray robbed of heat alter passing
through this medium.
To make this plain suppose a ray of temperature
1000 strikes an ordinary window pane this tempera-
ture will be transmitted and the temperature of the
glass witl not be raised much if any. Let a similar
ray strike a blue pane and the colored lass will ab-


have less sickness ail Jl, ath. By widening oul
streets and pulling d4,wn ,ur lnek courts, &e., we no
only improve the general appearance of our towns but
we admit the Sun where Ipreviously it was ex.
eluded and thereby make places healthy which formerly
were graveyards.
t Experionce has proved that an out door life is tc h
most wholesome and that even those who are chronic
invalids improve by basking in the sun. The latest
theory of Tuberculosis, viz., that it is due to septic
absorption is no doubt well founded and the successful
treatment of such cases by out door life seems to favo
the view. Hence it is that sunbaths have afford<
such benefit to the consumptive, and other invalid
are likewise benefited.
But in many cases the pure undiluted sunlight i
too powerful, whether from individual idiosyncracy
or t"aidnirg, or other cause.
here/is the 'place for blue glass. It acts simple2
as a filter, removing or at least making a homoeopa-
tiec att nation of the noxious rays. These it must
be presumed are the orange and yellow, and the ful
red. Blue glass changes the fiery bright red ray t,
a dark dull one and we thus have a diluted pleasant
extract of the sun.
The advantage then of blue glass to the sick is that
it readers bearable and grateful the health and life-
Sgiving sunlight and nothing more.
But this is a great deal. It has been customary t<
keep the Hinds down in the sickroom, on' account
of the light disturbing the sick one. The invalid out
of doors was compelled to keep in the shade and
thereby lose three-fourths of the benefit to be derived
from his 'going out. By means of blue glass we art
enabled to get all the good and avoid all the evil
which the sun, like everything else in the universe
contains, and if for nothing else than inducing people
to allow the sun to shine on them who never did so
wittingly before, General Pleasanton deserves th(
world's thanks. Beyond this, the blue glass cure is
simply a humbug and as such has now been pretty
generally relegated to the realms of moonshine.
The Turco-Russian war has taken its place. May
it as soon give way to something equally harmless
even if as absurd as Blue Glass."

THE PROCESS OF SEARCH AT SEA.
WASHINGTON, May 16.-As there is much com-
ment in regard to the probability of the Russian
fleet now at New-York going to sea for the purpose
of intercepting vessels suspected of having arms
and munitions of war on board for the Turks, it may
be proper to state that our treaties with France,
Prussia. Brazil, Sweden, Netherlands, United
States of Columbia, Spain, Holland, and several
other nations, clearly define the manner of search-
ing a vessel on the high seas ; and in all of these
treaties it is stipulated, in effect, that the examin-
ing vessel shall remain out of gun shot of the vessel
to be searched, and send one or two small boats
with a few men only to board the vessel suspected
of having contraband on board. The proof with
respect to the cargo must be the certificates contain-
ing the particulars of the cargo, the place sailed
from, where bound, &c., but the hatches are not to
be opened nor any of the packages, unless the
vessel is brought ashore, and then in the presence
of competent officers. The master of any sus-
pected vessel cannot be required to leave his ship,
Our treaties with Great Britain and Russia are
silent as to the whole proceeding. Under the
treaties with the other nations first mentioned
everything is left to depend upon the honesty of
the ship's papers. Contraband may be beneath
every hatch, under the guise of hardware on the
manifesto, and cannot be examined except by a
vessel of either Great Britain or Russia, which
vessels are not bound by the treaties above cited.
Russia has always been strenuous in supporting
the armed neutrality declaration of 1780, asking
no more in regard to contraband or the treatment
of her traders than the common law confers, and
has therefore bound herself by no treaty with this
or any other country. As most of the arms and
munitions of war for Turkey have been shipped
from this country in English vessels, it can be
stated that under the laws of Great Britain the
following articles are recognized as contraband of
war and subject to seizure; Arms and implements
serving for the purposes of war by land or sea,
such as cannon, muskets, gunpowder, pikes, swords,
horse furniture, belts, &c.; as also ship-timbe r
resin or tar, copper in sheets, and generally what-
ever may serve directly to the equipment of vessels,
unwrought iron and fir planks only excepted.
The treaties of the United States generally confis-
cate contraband, leaving the vessel and the re-
mainder of the cargo free, but no such treaty exists
with Russia, and the common law applies.

CAPTAIN BURNABY'S REPORT FROM THE
EAST.
The famous Captain Burnaby having returned
from his Eastern travels, the "Daily Telegraph"
thus reports of his views :
The political and military observations made by
Captain Burnaby were most important. There can
be no doubt whatever that if Russia determines
upon making an advance upon Van through Hoy-
Persia being Russia's ally and affording every fa-

Eau" of Dr. Hloltz for
HAIR DYE.

T'HIS 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. IloLTZ'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 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.

sorb and retain some of the heat, thereby depriving
the transmitted ray of just so much. This is found to
be about 3.
Again he says that by the'~ombination of blue and
white glass and owing in somne unintelligible way to
the Cobalt, an electro-magnetism is evolved which is
the main spIing of the whole matter. This too is all
nonsense. Actinism is not electricity whatever it is.
We know what electricity is but we do not know what
actinism is. It is something like catalysis,' a word
without a meaning.
Having shewn that the General's theories of the
action of blue glass are fanciful and not founded on
fact it becomes us to show how blue glass can do
good.
If we wish the greatest amount of heat we should
use red glass. If light is wanted then orange or yel-
low should be the color.
Blue glass reduces the heat and excludes nearly all
the light and therefore we are nearly in the dark
when we receive our light through such a medium.
Pleasanton raised pigs and poultry under blue glass,
and attributed their fineness to its influence. We
attribute itto their being comparatively in the dark.
*' Every raiser of poultry knows how fowls fatten when
kept in the dark." "Absence of light seems to exer-
cise a soothing and quieting effect on all animals, al-
lowing them to store up a greater proportion of what
they eat in the form ot fat and muscle."
The same may be true with regard to fruit, or it may
not. General Pleasanton is the only authority for
this idea and we are sorry that after, finding so many
errors and inaccuracies in his book-two or three of
which we have cited-we cannot accept the grape
story as positively proven.
Coming now to the part which much more intimately
interests every one, viz the action of blue glass on the
human race-we cannot help attributing ninety-
nine hundredths of the good to the sun alone.
There is no use in our wasting words in arguing the
life-giving power of old Sol. Undoubtedly the sun
is thQ store house whence is drawn all force and life
-and if this fact were more generally recognized
and his advances not so sedulously avoided we should

port in the Black Sea. It is not at all likely that
any attack will be attempted against the sea front,
because it is regarded as impregnable, and the Rus-
sians have no fleet which can be compared with
that under the command of Ilobart Pasha. Hav-
ing possession of Erzeroum and Van, it would be
easy for Russia to advance to Trebizond, and a
good road exists between Erzeroum and Trebizond
-it is indeed, almost the only road in Anatolia.
Thus the advances are decidedly in favor of Russia
should she assail Turkey in Asia Minor. Conse-
quently Turkish military men declare that if Eng-
land has any intention of preventing Russia from
capturing Van, Erzeroum and Trebizond, a strong
expeditionary and well-officered force ought to be
instantly despatched there. The Mohammedans
ask, if England is their friend, how can she possibly
allow Russia to penetrate thus far ? The Turks, it
is thought, have no adequate forces to oppose, and
they are without cavalry. Of late the question has
frequently been raised whether the Christians in
European Turkey would be sacrificed should war
take place. As far as the Christians in Asia Minor
are concerned, it is to be feared that cruel massa-
cres may follow. In all probability this calamity
would be the work of the Kourds in the Turkish
army. In the territory affected it is said that the
chiefs of these men have been bought by Russian
agents, and that it is not at all improbable that
there will be massacres in the neighborhood of Van.
During his travels Captain Burnaby did not hear
of one single instance in which torture had been in-
flicted. On the contrary, he learnt that the many
tales of outrages, burnings and executions were
either absolutely untrue or so exaggerated that but
little credit could be placed in the story.

Highest Centennial Award.
SIIIE Judges in the report said: It seems
undisputed that WEBKR has distanced all
competition, and must be to-day recognized as the
Piano-maker par excellence of the world, and the
musical jury has but stamped the seal of the
American Centennial Exhibition upon the gener-
ally awarded verdict of every vocalist and musi-
cian by the award which gives the medal to A.
WEBER, of New York, for sympathetic, fine and
rich tone combined with greatest power as shown
in three styles, Grand. Square and Upright Pi-
anos, which show intelligence and solidity in 1
their construction, a pliant and easy touch, which
at the same time answers promptly to its re-
quirements, together with excellence of work-
manship."
