2. I have accordingly convened the Legis-
lature this. day for the Despatch of .necessary
Public business.
v8. I do not deem it requisite, under exist-
ing' circumstancese, to do more than call your at-
tention to a few subjects which seem to require
Iainmiate attention, leaving it to His Excellency
the Governor to bring before you such other
_piportant aeagures as Her Majesty's Government
may commit to His Excellency's care..
4. I consider it however, to be my duty
to urge. you to make provision, and at as early
a date as possible, for, the completion of St.
David's Lighthouse, the Report of the Commis-
sioners wffill be laid before you, and from it you

well as for Surveys of other British Vessels in
reference to which complaints of unseaworthiness
may hve been made to the proper authorities.
a 8. there is a subject to which I think it very
necegary, ~ call, your earnest attention: I refer
d tlie'nquestion of Steam communication between
Bermuda and New York. The recent Contract
for this Service terminated on the 31st Decem-
ber last, and, should another Contract not be
made, the Company may cease to run their steam-
ers between the two Ports. Isolated as is the
position of Bermuda, possessed of no telegraphic
communication with the rest of the world, with
its principal, if not only, market, or source of
supply, at New York, it deserves your most care-
ful consideration how far it be wise, in a social
or commercial point of view, to remain for a
great part of the year dependent for postal or
otheioommunications by steam upon a monthly
steamer between Halifax and the West Indies.
7. With reference to the Message by His
Expellency the Governor to the Legislature on
th% b .I. ne,- 1876, I amto apprise& you that
Berm l4a, in accordance with the- wishes ex-
pressed by your Honorable Houses, has been ad-
mitted into the General Postal Union, and that
the uniform rates of postage contemplated by the
convention are already in operation.
8. The Report of the Commission which was
appointed, tt esquire into the circumstances con.
nected with the wreck and salvage of the British
Barque "Stella" will be laid before you, and I
am to acquaint you that the Secretary of State for
the Colonies concurred with Governor Lefroy that
the Inquire "was called for by considerations of
"public morality in which the Colony has the
"greatest interest," and his Lordship has express-
ed a hope "that the Assembly would grant some
" .emuneration to the Commissioners" for an inves.
tigatioi the conduct of which has met with the
"high apprecia.1ien of the Secretary of State, and
whici His Lordship has stated "was carried out
"with great moral courage and in a thorough
"manner that reflects credit upon themselves,
"and has done good'service to the well-disposed
*'part of the cominihnity of. the Bermudas."
9. Y(i1 are doubtless. aware that it is intend-
ed to hold ittParis in 1878 -an Universal Exhibi-
tion of the, Products of all countries; and I am
to acquaint yqu that. His- Royal Highness the
Prince of Wales, President of the Royal Commis-
sio~a, ta M tSen graciously pleased to place the ser-
vices ofe te Secretary of the Commission at the
dfisial of such of Her Majesty's Colonial Pos-
sessions as may desire 'o take part in the Exhi-

The Barque Sir George F. Seymour, Captain Watling-
ton, from London, with goods for Merchants, arrived at
the Quarantine Station in the Great Sound on Fri-
day last. She was observed, before she anchored, to
have the Quarantine Flag flying, pad was consequently
soon visited by Dr. Higgs, the Heilth Officer for the
Western District, who learnt from Captain Watlington,
that he left London on the 5th April ; on the 15th
one of his seamen, a native of Somerset, in these Islands
complained of being sick Captain W. soon discovered,
to his horror, that the man had small pox. He imme -
diately removed the others of the crew from the fore-
castle to temporary quarters on the main deck, and
being well provided with disinfectants he did all in his
power to prevent the spreading of the disease to the
others on board. Being near the Azores he put into
Fayal on the 1st of May and obtained a nurse, at great
expense, to wait on the sick man, and shipped another
seaman. Since then till arrival here every care has
been taken to restore Simons to health and to stay the
progress of the justly dreaded disease.
Simons and his nurse were removed to the Quaran-
antine Island yesterday. We feel satisfied that Cap-
tain Watlington will use great vigilance in purifying
his ship and every precaution in preventing the
disease being brought to the shore.

H. M. S. Argus, Commander Harris, with a Middle
Month Mail, arrived from Halifax on Thursday evening
last. This Mail was brought out by the Allan Steamer

THE CONSECRATION.
CONSECRATION OF RT. REV. DR. HANNAN, THIRD
ARCHBISHOP OF HALIFAX.
From the Halifax, N.S. Reporter, May 21.
St. Mary's Cathedral was the scene of a magni-
ficent celebration yesterday morning, viz., the con-
secration of the Right Rev. Dr. Hannan, D. D.,
as Archbishop of the Diocese of Halifax, which
includes Halifax, Arichat, Chatham, N. B., and
P. E. Island and Bermuda. Long before the hour
announced for the services to begin (10 o'clock)
the spacious Cathedral was crowded to its full,
both sitting and standing accommodation being
fully taxed. Among the vast audience-number-
ing some 2,500 people-were His Honor the Lieut.
Governor and Miss Archibald, His Worship the
Mayor, Judge Johnson, the Town Major, and a
number of military officers, besides a very large
number of leading Protestant citizens of Halifax
who were shown every courtesy by the members of
the St. Mary's congregation.
The Consecrating Bishop was the Right Rev.
George Conroy, D.D., Bishop of Ardagh, Ireland,
and Apostolic Delegate to the Dominion of Canada.
The Assistant Bishops to His Grace Dr. Hannan
were the Right Rev. Dr. Sweeney, of St. John, and
Right Rev. Dr. McIntyre, of P. E. Island.
At ten o'clock the officiating and attending cler-
gy left the Glebe House and marched to the Cath-
edral. The sight was one whose grandeur will never
be forgotten by those who witnessed it,

DELAWARE AND HUDSON RAILWAY
COMPANY.
The annual meeting of the stockholders of the
Delaware and Hudson Railway Company took
place in New York on the 8th inst., when the pre-
sident underwent a strict examination as to the
financial state of the company. There were pre-
sent 75 persons, who expressed themselves satisfied
with the President's answers, and were willing to
"hold their breath and wait for better prices for
their coal." The following are the concluding
paragraphs of the report of the proceedings:-
"The total salaries to othersthan laborers amount-
ed to about $140,000 per annum. The only mort-
gage on the coal lands, Mr. Dickson said, was for
$1,000,000, covering property worth from five to
six times that sum, and was originally made by the
Union Canal Company. This would expire in
1887. With reference to the bonds of the company
falling due in Novr. next, Mr. Dickson said that if
no disaster befell the company, he hoped to make
satisfactory arrangements for their renewal. He
thought new bonds secured by another mortgage
covering the same property might be exchanged
for the old bonds. But the old bonds are below
par," said a gentlemen present. Mr. Dickson re-
plied that they were not much below par, and he
hoped before they were due they would again be
selling at a premium. If not, then they would
have to be paid, and the money for that purpose
would have to be obtained in'some other pay.
A resolution was offered by John V. L. Pruyn
of Albany "cordially approving the course of the
managers in their endeavours to protect the inter-
ests of the company against the recent unjustifiable
and wanton attacks made upon its credit and char-
acter, and they trust that those efforts will end
in bringing the guilty parties to the punishment
which they so justly deserve." This was adopted.
A resolution offered by Judge Parker was also
adopted, expressing confidence in the intrinsic
value of the stock of the company and satisfaction
in the report of the officers. At the request of Mr.
Dickson a committee of six, consisting of John
V. L. Pruyn, Adolphus Hamilton, Henry H.
Farnham, H. L. Olmstead, E. B. Grant and Judge
Parker, was appointed to visit the property of the
company, and report to the managers, the report
to be printed and sent to the Stockholders, At the
election of managers for the ensuing year over
100,000 proxies were voted. All of the managers
were re.elected except W. J. Hoppin, who is in
Europe. Levi P. Morton was elected in his place,

BULGARIA-HORRORS UPON HORRORS.'
The Turks have recommended their barbarities
in Bulgaria. All Christian Europe should proclaim
a crusade. With seeming frenzy the wild Bashi-.
Bazouks have been let loose upon the frontier towns
along the Danube and the results are scenes of ra-
pine and spoliation which rival the darkest days of
the Middle Ages. The little Bulgarian town of
Turtukai, situated across the Danube from Olten-
itza and 28 miles west southwest of Silistria, pos-
sessed many Christian inhabitants. Although in
numbers far fewer than the Turks, they were in
every way an industrious and valuable part of the
population. On the night of the 16th the Turkish
citizens of the town joined with the troops in the
fortress,-from which the village takes its name, and
began an onslaught upon the Christians. The car-
nage began in all parts of the town at once. The
doors of those who attempted to defend their homes
were broken in, and the massacres and outrages
were perpetrated within the dwellings. In many
instances, however, the attacking parties encount-
ered the families seated together in front of their
houses. The method in such cases generally was
to either sabre or shoot the father and elder sons,
to break the skulls of the old women and then to
seize and outrage the younger women. In very
many cases the outrages were perpetrated by neigh-
bours and citizens of the town well known to the
poor miserable victims. Nobody was spared who
was captured. Scenes of frightful atrocity occurred.
The cries of the fleeing women and children were
heard at the outposts of the Roumanian troops en-
camped below Oltenitza and a small party of brave
fellows, under cover of the darkness, ventured a-
cross the river, in the hope of being able to rescue
some of the fugitives. They were partially success-
ful and brought two Bulgarian men back with them.
One of the fugitives was quite an old man, and was
for a long time unable to speak from grief and wild
terror. When on the morning of Thursday, he was
composed sufficiently to talk with the Roumanian
officers, he described the killing of his wife and eld.
est son in his sight and the carrying off of his
daughter. He seemed to rebuke himself for his es-
cape. He declared that he was returning in haste
to his home, having heard of the outbreak in ano.
therpartof the village, when he saw his wife's head
struck from her shoulders and heard his daughter's
wild shrieks as she was dragged away by a fierce
mob of scrambling, frenzied brutes.
The only pretext seems to have been the ineffec-
tual bombardment of Oltenitza from the old fortress
of Turtukai and from the new water batteries which
have been erected along the river bank. No dam-
age was done by the Turkish batteries, the weapons
being of a very inferior kind. In a single instance a
shell passed over a park of artillery and exploded
near a large powder magazine. Not a person was
killed, however, during the ten days bombardment,
and this seems to have exasperated the Turkish
commander to a degree bordering upon madness.
With his direct sanction the irregulars joined with
the Moslem inhabitants to perpetrate the terrible
deeds told above. The effect of this massacre is to
forever settle the policy of Roumania.


TORPEDOES.-It is certain that the conflict be-
tween Russia and Turkey will teach the world new
and costly lessons in the art of war. Probably the
strategy of the contending armies will have few
novelties to disclose to the military science of West-
ern Europe, but we must remember that now, for
the first time since the Austrian victory at Lissa,
naval operations will have a potent influence upon
events. During the Franco-German struggle the
superiority of France on the seas was recognized
by Germany, but the French navy made no attempt
to attack the coast defences of the enemy. The ex-
perience of 1870, therefore, added little or nothing
to our knowledge of naval warfare as modified by
the vast progress which has been made within the
past ten years. We published on Thursday a tele.
gram which reminds us unpleasantly that a new
element, profoundly transforming all the conditions
both of attack and of defence upon the seas, must
be taken into our calculations henceforward just as
much as armored ships and heavy guns. It is as.
serted that a British merchant steamer, entering
the harbor of Kertch without due precautions,
struck upon a torpedo and was blown up with her
crew and cargo. The rumor happily is not yet
confirmed, but it is quite consistent with probabili-
ty. The Russian Government gave formal notice
some time ago that the Black Sea ports were guard-
ed with sunken torpedoes, and official warning of
the fact was communicated to the mercantile pub-
lic in this country. What is said to have happen-
ed at Kertch to an innocent and friendly trader is
intended to happen to the intruding enemy at
Odessa, Sebastopol and other Russian ports on the
Euxine. Now, too, when the Russians have de-
clared the navigation of the Danube to be closed,
they have begun to secure their positions on the
northern shore by lines of torpedoes in front and
they will probably endeavor to block the mouths of
the great river so as to prevent Hobart Pasha from
bringing any effective assistance to the land forces
of the Sultan.-London Times.

|l IE Judges in the report said : "It seems
undisputed that WEBER 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.
WEB.En, of New York, for sympathetic, fine and
rich tone combined with greatest power as shown
in three styles, Grand. Square and Upright Pi-

their construction, a pliant and easy touch, which
at th,' same time answers promptly to its re-
quirements, together with excellence of work-

Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it

Guided by his medical knowledge and his
great chemical experiences, Da. HOLTz has
succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give

SOLDIERING IN BERMUDA has not quite so demoraliz-
ing a tendency as some people would wish to have
others to believe-see what is said of the 20th and 97th
Regiments, both of which having served a term in Ber-
muda have just been removed to Halifax, N. S. The
20th and 97th Regiments were the only two Regiments
of the line reviewed on the Common at that place on
the 24th ultimo, in Honor of Her Majesty's Birth
Day. The Morning Herald of the 25th says:-" It
was generally remarked by old stagers who have seen
all the reviews of the past Jorty years, that never two
line regiments marched better on Halifax Common.
Their precision was wonderful, and perhaps there was
more than one spectator who felt that, should the sad
necessity arise, the same men would march with the
same faultless precision, and with the same light
hearts, against the helmeted and grey-coated legions
of the Czar. The column was halted, and, left in front,
were ordered back on the double. Their footfalls
sounded with the "stern roll of the drums," and again
there were expressions of admiration from the specta-
tors. The officers commanding were then called to
the front, and were addressed by the General, who
expressed his satisfaction not only with the appearance
of the men, but with the manner in which they went
through the evolutions. No better drill could be
needed, and he had pleasure in instructing the officers
to convey to the men of their respective commands
this expression of his sentiments."

APROPOS OF THE PROPOSED ISLAND
RAIL OR TRAMWAY.
We clip the following from our Trinidad ex-
changes :-" A great train of sugar came in from
the Eastward while we were on the wharf this af-
ternoon. We could not be certain of the num-
ber of trucks, tailing off in the distance, but as well
as we could make out there were more than 25,
which would be equal to 150 hhds. What a de-
lightful sight for the economist. An engineman
and a stoker brought this long train, from the es.
tate up in the country to the wharf in town, with
greater ease than could possibly be accomplished
by the three dozen waggoners and many score poor
devils of mules that must have been employed to
bring in that number of hogsheads on the old plan.
The railway assures us, if nothing else does, that
we are really in the 19th century. There is no
great accumulation of sugar on the Wharf, as last
year; it appears to be shipped off as quickly as it
comes down.--20th April.

General Grant ex-President of the United States,
had arrived in England, and was receiving the
splendid hospitalities of the Merchant Princes of
Liverpool and Manchester.

The great Tidal wave, alluded to as having re-
cently occurred on the South American coast, was
not limited as was at first supposed, but was ex.-
perienced along the entire Pacific coast from Ore-
gon to Chili. On the Peruvian coast, it swept over
the towns and demolished most of them completely,
destroying hundreds of lives.
There has been another great fire in Montreal,
fortunately without loss of life. The fire occurred
on 80th May and was very extensive and destruc-
tive.
CUBA.-Havana, May 30.-Rumors are reported
here of peace arrangements between the Spaniards
and Insurgents, but they cannot be credited. The
government, however, is trying to favorably affect
the public mind by its policy of leniency.

From the New York Herald, May 31.
THB WAR NEws.-The most significant feature
in the news of the great conflict is the attention


given at Berlin to reports of mediation, peace pros-
pects and an armistice. Germany appears to be the
mediating Power; and while there can be no doubt
the Sultan would make peace on almost any terms
if he dared it is certain the Czar would not be diffi-
cult beyond his demand in regard to Bulgaria and
the Christian people of the Sultan's dominions.
This disposition of the belligerents, therefore, exhi-
bits that a fair peace is possible, and the anxiety
and eagerness of England to see peace restored be-
fore Turkey is crushed will certainly supply an ac-
tive impulse. There may, then, be more in the
peace reports than is yet apparent, though it should
be remembered that peace rumors of the livliest
sort are always an incident to the first few months
of war. It is officially reported" that the Turks
have retaken Ardahan, but this is Constantinople
news, made for a market that demands reports of
Turkish successes, and must have them. It is a high-
ly improbable story. There is no progress on the
Danube, and bad weather is also likely to delay de-
cisive events in Asia, though there seems some like-
lihcod that the Russians will get between Mukhtar
Pacha and Erzeroum, which will mean the loss of
Mukhtar's army.
DESTRUCTION OF THE TUBRKISH IRONCLAD.-The
Times' Bucharest correspondent recounts the de-
struction of the Turkish monitor as follows: "It
was cne of the most daring deeds ever recorded.


A small detachment of Russian soldiers left the
northern shore of the Danube in a number of small
boats. The night being very dark they managed
to surround the monitor before being discovered.
When, finally observed by the sentries on board
they were challenged. The Major replied in Tur-
kish, Friends." The Turks not satisfied, com-
menced firing in the direction of Matchin, not know-
ing where the boats came from. The shots flew
wide. During the firing several Russian soldiers
plunged into the water, swam silently to the vessel,
and placed the torpedo in close contract with her
bottom. After it bad been securely fastened the
men returned to the neighboring shore. The mon-
itor was blown into the air and all on board per-
ished.
The Peace rumors repeated. The semi-official
Provincial Correspondence of Berlin yesterday pub-
lished an article which, in the light of recent peace
rumors from Bucharest, is significant. The article
concludes as follows :-" The efforts of German po.
licy which after the last war found expression and
a firm basis in the alliance of the three Emperors
have proved also in the present grave crisis
to be a guarantee for pacific mediation reaching far
beyond that narrower alliance. If, notwithstand-
ing the outbreak of the Russo-Turkish war, the
prospects of the preservation of peace in Europe have
within the last few weeks rather increased than di-
minished German policy has an honorable share in
this."
The Situation in Constantinople.-A correspondent
at Vienna says :-The Palace Clique at Constanti-
nople seems to have renounced all idea of yielding.
The formation of the council of war is a sign that it
has reasserted its position in the Palace. This mea-
sure will probably prevent the Sultan's going to the
army. All rumors of Ministerial changes have ceas-
ed. The first step of the council of war has been to
obtain authorization from the Sultan for the forma-
tion of a Hungarian legion. The authorization was
given, despite the representations of Count Zichy,
the Austrian Amdassador, and the urgent dissua-
sion of Klapka Pacha." The Vienna Political Cor.
respondence's special Constantinople says:-" The
Porte, in order to justify numerous arrests, has in-
formed the Diplomatic representatives here that a
conspiracy for the overthrow of the dynasty was
discovered. This is untrue. The Porte's only ob-
ject is the removal of the partisans of Midhat Pa-
cha, who are openly agitating for his recall."
Turkish Financial projects.-Mr. Foster, manager
of the Ottoman Bank, will leave here to-day for
London, for the purpose of co-operating with Zudhy
Effendi to bring about an arrangement with the
holders of the Turkish loans of 1854 and 1871.
These loans are secured upon the Egyptian tribute.
The object of the present negotiation is to obtain
from the bondholders the release of a portion of
their guarantee which is in excess of those portions
of the above loans still outstanding, and on this to
negotiate a new loan.
Russia and England.-Le Nord of Brussels,. pub-
lishes a St. Petersburg letter upon Count Schowa-
loff's visit to St. Petersburg,which says:--' Russia's
reply to Mr. Cross' definition of British interests
will be of a nature to fully reassure the British
Cabinet that Russia is not only under no necessity
to attack British interests but, on the contrary, is
interested in meeting the views of the British gov.
ernment in order to secure more promptly the de-
sired result, which is simply to obtain the amelior-.
ation of the condition of the Christian subjects of
Turkey by broader and more effectual guarantees
than were provided by previous diplomatic pro-
grammes."
The suite accompanying the Czar to Roumania
numbers 300.
It is reported from Constantinople that Hobart
Pacha has started for the Black Sea.
Up to the present time Russia has paid to Rou-
mania 3,000,000 roubles. On May 25 the financial
officials of Roumania applied to the Russian chief-
of-staff for an additional Instalment. They were
Informed nothing could be done until further orders
were received.

THE PRINCE OF WALES AND THE LI-
CENSED VICTUALLERS.
At the annual dinner of the Licensed Victuallers
the Prince of Wales was in the chair, and in the
course of the few remarks in which he acknowledged
the customary loyal toasts, he said:-" I may state
that during the last two or three days I have re*
ceived some two hundred petitibuons from various
parts of the United Kingdom relative to my attend.
ance here this evening. Of course I don't wish to say
a word to disparage these societies, which no doubt
have excellent objects in view, but I think that in
this instance they have rather overshot the mark.
The object of our meeting here to-night is not to
encourage the love of drink, but rather to support a
good and excellent charity. I can only say I
am sure that all here will agree with me that
no one had more at heart the interests of his
adopted country than my lamented father, and I
feel perfectly convinced that be would never have
been the patron of this society unless he was sure
that it was one likely to do good and was deserving
of his support."
In a similar spirit of good-natured reproof, Lord
Granville remarked that be had been solemnly
warned not to risk his popularity by publicly asso-
ciating himself with those monsters of iniquity the
Licensed Victuallers, and had replied that, in any
case, be should attend the dinner, if it were only to
see three hundred monsters of iniquity pleasantly
assembled together to promote a work of genuine


charity and benevolence.
The Telegraph" remarks :-" We doubt if any
more flagrant instance of meddlesome folly, bad
taste and impertinence could well be imagined than
that afforded by the conduct of those members of
the United Kingdom Alliance and other temperance
bodies who have recently taken upon themselves
to call the Heir Apparent to task for his kindness
and, we may add, his condescension, in consenting
to preside at the annual dinner of the Licensed
Victualler's Asylum, of which liberal charity his
Royal Highness is patron, as his father was before
him. The licensed victuallers are a powerfully or-
ganised body. They know very well how to protect
their own interests; but, to do them justice, they
know also how to aid and assist the needy and siclk
among them ; and their various charities, of which
the Asylum in the old Kent Road is the chief, are
conducted on a scale of the most munificent gener-
osity, while at the same time the funds are admin.
istered with a care and economy which many simi-
lar institutions would do well to imitate. The con-
duct of the teetotallers who took it upon themselves
to pester His Royal Highness with their advice is
worse than foolish-it is mischievous; and if there
be organization or authority in the teetotal ranks it
is to be hoped that the leaders of the movement will
have the common sense, and we may add, the de-
cency to express their regret at the astounding bad
taste and bigotry of which some of their followers
have been guilty."
The Standard has an editorial to a similar effect
as the Telegraph.

THE BRITISH CELEBRATION.
PETERSBURG, May 23.-A reception in honor
of the delegates from English, Scotch, Irish, and
Welsh societies of the Northern States, and Canada,
attending the international British celebration
took place this morning- Hon. D. B, Tennant
delivered an eloquent address of welcome. Res-
ponses where made by Hon. Lewis Thompson, of
Philadelphia; Hon. W. Merrick, of Toronto;
Alderman McLellan, of Hamilton; W. Tomlin, of


Bridgeport, and many other Northern and Cana-
dian Presidents of societies.
The annual meeting of the British Association
took place at noon. Hon. David B. Tenant was,
elected President; J. A. H. St. Andrews, Vice
President; Charles Leonard, Treasurer; Alexan-
der Wilson, General Secretary, and J. J. Camp-
bell, Business Secretary. At 4 o'clock J. W. Heb-
ditch, the orator of the celebration, delivered an
address, which very fairly stated the advantages
and disadvantages under which British residents,
in Virginia labor, with a clear statement of pre-
dominating advantages. The procession of dele--
gates, headed by a band, to-day, was a fine display.
To-night a concert was given to the delegates in
the Academy of Music.

MURDEROUS WRECKERS.
HALIFAX, May 23.-A vessel commanded by
Capt. Ridout was lost on the French shore of New-
foundland in 1874. A St. Johns paper says a
person from Boune Bay relates the following: The
Captain had $1,000 on his person at the time the
craft went ashore near a hut occupied by an old
hunter known as "Jacko." All of the crew got
ashore and built a tent. A certain B. W.," with
the members of his family, understood to be hunt-
ers, wreckers, &c., visited the tent and offered to
pilot the crew to the channel. The offer was ac-
cepted, and while the party were crossing a pond
the members of the crew were shot, three falling
at the first volley. The Ws" cut a hole in the
ice and put the bodies down after robbing them.
Jacko, aware of the circumstance, was brought
over; but becoming sick, confessed. The infor-
mant also states that a Nova Scotian craft fishing
there found the remains of the Captain, fearfully
mangled, under a rock on the shore. The people are
confident the crew were all murdered by the same
gang. Many other vessels and crews he believes
met the same fate. He further states that the
people at Port-au-Port do little else than plunder
and, in his opinion, they would not hesitate to use-
lights to decoy vessels on shore. The matter has
been placed in the hands of the Chief of Police of
St. Johns to investigate. It is said the officers of
H. M. steamer Eclipse, now visiting the shore, will
be directed to seek information relative to the-
crimes.

A CuRIous INQUijr.-" Our Washington cor-
respondent" says the N. Y. Herald, of 31st ultimo,.
"* states that the British government has called the
attention of Secretary Evarts to the fact that one of
the persons killed in the Kemper county riot in,
Missisippi was a British subject, and Mr. Evarts is
requested to ascertain how and why he was killed.
Governor Stone would do well to assist voluntarily
in this inquiry and the Legislature might very well
offer an indemnity it it is shown that Mr. McClel--
land was wrongfully slain. Meantime we advise
peaceable people, foreigners and Americans, to keep
out of Mississippi until somebody enforces the laws
down there. The whole of Atrica is open to per-
sons of an adventurous turn, not to speak of Mexi--
co and South America.

Nzw YORKx, May 25.-A secret meeting was held
at Washington last night to organize a national
party. About 150 were present, and the organiza--
tion was made a secret one.
Oliver P. Myroon has written a letter on political
party of the North, in which he says Republican
party can't afford any divisions that endanger their
success Should the North by unhappy discords
be divided, and thus fall a prey to solid Confederal
South, the rebellion will have been suppressed in
vain, the fruits of war will be lost, and our last con.
edition worse than the first.

EasZaoux is a strongly fortified city tothe south-
west of Kars. It was originally founded by the
Emperop Theodosius II., in 415. It was taken
from the Christians by the Seljuk Turks, in the
twelfth century, and by the Ottoman empire in
1517. In 1824 it was captured by the Russian
General Paskewitch, and restored to Turkey in
1830, in accordance with the terms of the treaty off
Adrianople. As a city it has suffered much from
earthquakes, having on the last occasion been
nearly destroyed by shocks which lasted from the-
2nd June till the 14th July, 1859, the destruction
being nearly total. It has, however, been rebuilt,.
and with Tifls and Alexandropol to the north-
east, forms one of the three great strongholds stil96
remaining to the Sultan in Turkey in Asia.
