Pilot Swan says he supposes she had been drifting
about for some three or four months as there are many

She is lying opposite Chub Cut passage in about 27

vessels either approaching or passing the land.

We have been requested to say that in the account
of the Preliminary Meeting of the Seamen and Ma-
rines Club, Ireland Island, Mr. Thomas Lawson,
Warder, is incorrectly stated to have said that the
" Shipwrights of the Yard" were willing to lend a
hand in erecting a building on Ireland Island,
whereas he only said that "some" of them were in.
lined to do so,


BERIMIUDA.

COLONIAL LEGISLATURE.
On Friday last His Honor the Acting Governor
came down to the Council Chamber for the purpose
of receiving the Address of the Honorable House
of Assembly in reply to His Honor's Speech at the
opening of the Session.
At 3 p.m., the hour appointed for the purpose,
the Honorable the Speaker and the other Members
of the House being present, the Speaker presented
the following Address :-
May it please Your Honor;
We Her Majesty's most dutiful and loyal sub.
jects the General Assembly of the Islands of Ber-
muda thank your Honor for the Speech with which
you have opened the present Legislative Session.
The appropriation for the completion of the St.
David's Lighthouse shall be carefully considered
whenever the Estimate is laid before us.
We shall be ready to give our attention to any
measure for enforcing necessary Surveys of British
vessels, or vessels seeking British Registration, in
these Islands, when it shall come before us.
; We are fully alive to the importance of contin-
ued Steam Communication with New York, and if
difficulties shall occur in maintaining it they will
not arise from any doubt of the social or commer-
cial benefits which this Colony has derived from
that mode of communication in past years.
We shall feel it our duty to consider any pro-
posal for granting remuneration to the "Stella"
Commissioners, should that subject be againbrought
before us, as His Lordship, the Secretary of State
L for the Colonies, has signified his approval of the
manner in which the Inquiry was conducted.
We have to acknowledge with gratitude the
courteous offer of H. R. H. the Prince of Wales tc
place the services of the Secretary of the Royal Com-
mission for the Paris Exhibition of 1878, over which
Commission His Royal Highness presides, at the
disposal of Her Majesty's Colonial possessions.
1 The Estimate for the financial service of the
coming year shall meet with due attention when.
ever they shall be brought before us.
We assure Your Honor that under all circum-
stances this House will be actuated in all its under-
7 takings by a loyal devotion to Her Majesty, and tc
the best interests of these Islands.
4 REPLY.
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the House of As-
sembly ;
a. I thank you for your answer to the address which
I had the honor of making to you on the 31st ult.,
d and I feel sure that your deliberations will be so
conducted as to result in the greatest benefit t(
the various interests of these Islands.

J, SEAMEN AND MARINES CLUB.
y Proceedings of the First Meeting of the Sea
men and Marines Club" Committee, held in thE
a Captain-in-Charge's Office, Dockyard, 4th June
1877.
Present at the Meeting:-
Capt. Somerset, R.N., A.D.C., President,
Capt. Fisher, R.N., H.M.S. Bellerophon,
t Capt. Silver, R.M.L.I., ',
f Rev. C. Harbord, (Treasurer), "
Lieut. P. Hearle, R.M.L.I., (Hony. Secy.)
Mr. Norsworthy, Boatswain,
I The Committee decided that a quorum must con
sist of three members; that in case of an even num
ber the President should give the casting vote.
e The following Resolutions were put before th
n, Committee and carried unanimously:-
't 1st-That the Working Committee of the Seamei
is and Marines Club" meet at least once a month
or oftener, if necessary.
. 2nd-That the President and Members of the Corn
g mittee collect information on the subject of erect
ing a temporary shed, on the site of the late Cler]
of the Works' house, Ireland Island, subject t
the approval of the Director of Works.
- 3rd-That a building on Ireland Island should b
h commenced, as soon as the Resident Committe
[1 are in possession of sufficient funds to erect it.
d 4th-That the Captain of the Flagship be inform&
.1 once a month by the Honorary Secretary of th
e progress made by the Resident Committee, fo
3t the information of the Squadron.
5th-That the Treasurer and. Honorary Secretari
be members of the Committee.
6th-That arrangements be at once tadi to obtai
te necessy Er t 0a4 a .t.t ae I


expected, it proved not only full of novelty, but in
such good hands, elicited both wonder and admira-
tion. During the dialogue, the voice was thrown
so that it appeared to come from behind a screen,
under the stage floor, inside the piano, or made to
melt away in the distance as if the "Good night,
Sur!" of the purely imaginary Irish gintleman"
and friend, was wafted back on the passing breeze.
The side-splitting farce was a fitting finale to this
variety entertainment, which, in echo to a general
wish, we hope soon to see repeated, forming as it
does an evening's enjoyment of a class to be met
with but seldom in these Islands, where food for
harmless laughter is never so abundant that an oc-
casion of the kind may be passed bye in contempt
without regret.

We are pleased to learn that the Revd. E. Foggo,
D.D., Rector of Christ Church, Philadelphia, who is
at present on a visit to his friends in these Islands,
has kindly consented to give a course of three Lectures
on Shakespeare," at the Masons Hall in this Town.
It is seldom that occasions, frequent enough in larger
communities abroad, are presented to us, of spending
an evening thus pleasantly and profitably, in contem-
plating the productions of one of the greatest of English
authors, and listening to Selections, effectively read,
from his choicest compositions; and we look forward
with no little pleasure to the rich treat prepared for us.
From the popular nature of the subject, and the
well known ability of the Lecturer, we imagine thai
few who can awail themselves of such a golden op-
portunity will fail to do so; and we anticipate on each
evening a large and appreciative audience.

STEAM TO NEW YORK.-We understand that the
Alhambra will not return to Bermuda, and that the
Canima will make but one more trip, when she also will
cease to run between these Islands and New York.

THE AMERICAN SCHR. F. A. MAGEE."
In January last the above vessel struck on the
Bermuda reefs, in consequence of the Master being
80 miles out in his reckoning, which he attributed to
a defective compass. The vessel lost her keel and her
rudder, was extricated from the reefs by salvors
from the shore, and repaired damages in St. Georges
at a cost of $3,000 according to a passenger, who has
written an account of the accident for the Forest
and Stream, a New York sporting paper.
If this is true we should recommend the owner of
the Mages to buy a good compass, for it is paying
very dear for a bad one.
The historian of the event is Mr. Frederick A.
Ober, who writes over the nom de plume of Fred.
Beverley.
We are only concerned with his story in so far as
it shews how far smart writers will go in their
straining after effect, and how little they reck of the
truthfulness of their narrative, so long as it is sen-
sational, or of the feelings of persons probably as
respectable as themselves when they are a few hun-
dred miles away.
Bitter complaint is made of the amount of salvage
and expenses. That may be a fair subject for com-
plaint or criticism, though, if the Master submitted
the salvage claims to arbitration, as he seems to have
done, it is not very clear why he should complain
of the award of 150 to upwards of forty salvors.
He complains, however, that these people did little
or nothing, and that one of them attempted to cut
the foresail adrift, so as to prevent the vessel get-
ting out of the reefs. This we believe to be a gross
calumny. The class of men whom he calls wreck-
ers, are not men, as far as our knowledge of them
goes, of this stamp at all. That they are always
glad to get all they can for their services (like most
other persons, whether Americans or Bermudians or
whether literary or nautical men), need not be de-
nied. But that they are capable of deliberate ini-
quity of this class requires better proof than the as-
sertion of the mate of the Magee.
But it is not the "Niggers" alone whom Mr.
Fred. Beverley has a hard word for, although we
dare say he was not sorry to see their faces, what-
ever the expression of them, soon after he heard the
cry She's lost" in the dead hours of that January
night, but he makes, in some doggerel lines ascribed
to the doctor," a most calumnious, and, we are
certain, unjust attack on the arbitrator, whoever he
was. We shall not quote the lines. We do not know
whom they allude to. But we do know that there
is not a gentleman in Bermuda to whom the impu-
tation could be flung without a falsehood. The
grave part of that imputation is nothing less than
actual collusion between the arbitrator and the sal-
vors, and to this "the doctor" adds a touch meant
to be witty as well as insulting.
We should be the last to defend the malpractices
of salvors or the frauds alleged to be at times prac-
ticed on shipowners and underwriters; but we have
no hesitation whatever in saying that Fred. Bever-
ley's charges against them are gratuitously false
and. calumnious, and deserve the reprobation of
honest men. It is very much to be regretted that
smart writers or aggrieved shipmasters will not
come forward manfully on the spot, when they think
they have grievances to complain of, and have them
honestly investigated, instead of waiting until, in-
quiry being impracticable, there are no means of
meeting such slanders as this.

PADDY O'NEILL'S ENTERTAINMENT.
It has seldom been our lot to witness a perform-
ance of such remarkable interest as that given by
Paddy O'Neill, Army Service Corps, on Saturday
last, the 9th instant, in the Theatre at Prospect.
From the first rising of the curtain till the last mo-
ment, the attention of the audience was spell-bound
and the bursts of genuine and hearty applause
which greeted each song, dance, sketch, dialogue,
or impersonation, testified to their high standard of
excellence throughout.
In rendering the songs, everyone of which evin-
ced a choice of diction and a successful catering,
the vocal abilities of the performer were exhibited to
perfection in a subtle charm of delivery, both mel-
low and pleasing, accompanied by a corresponding
grace of action and a perfect bonhomie which de-
lineated at once the accomplished artist. ITappy as
were his efforts generally in this direction, we be-
lieve a short ori4wdl O1 'reti oi a Trip across the
Atlanti" which he introduced in one of the songs,
o.vIsibly heightened the effect, and proved to be one
of the most mirth-provoking and ludicrous; Mon-
sieurLe Froy," Butcher Boy," Laughing Song,"
" Another Kind Love," It makes me feel so fun-
ny," &c., &c., were full of wit and humor, and
caused the genial smile, the hearty laugh, and gen-
erous vivas to accompany this part of the peirform-
ance; whilst the patheti4sentimental and topical,
"On the strict Q. T., orbehind the Scenes," "Gone
Wrong," "Erin's Isle," "Pretty Little Rose,"
" Speak up for Ireland," &c., were acknowledged
with beaming satisfaction and hearty encores.
The dancing was also highly appreciated, and
was sustained with vigor, elasticity, grace and
correctness. In fact the artist appears to be a queer
mixture of cleverness and genius in all he professes
to undertake, never once failing to afford satisfac-
tion, and never wearying his audience, but constant-
ly drawing on their sympathy, risibility and ap-
proval.
The impersonation of celebrated actors was cap-
itally burlesqued, and called forth renewedlaughter;
but the role of "Adolphus Fitznoodle," a London
drawing room Swell of the modern type, capped the
climax of impersonations, and was, in the peculiar
idiom deucedlyy clevah !"
Ventriloquism is a gift or acquirement so rarely
met with, and yet so full of entertainient- that, as


Chinese Ambassadors), Messrs. John Bright, Glad-
stone, Professor Schlieman and the Earl and
Countess of Caithness. The names of the most
distinguished guests alone would fill nearly a ool-
umn.
The correspondent of the New York Times in
London telegraphs that he hears of serious dissen-
sions in the British Cabinet. The Queen's contin-
ued absence is still giving rise to great dissat-
isfaction among all classes, There is no doubt
that Earl Grey has remonstrated with her on the
impolicy of her course. Midhat Pasha is in Lon.
don expecting every day a summons to return to
Constantinople.
The London Standard's telegram via Madeira
states that the King of Dahomey paid the fine of
500 puncheons of oil, and the blockade was raised
on the 12th of May, but 200 puncheons of this oil
were lost by the wreck of the steamer Gambia.
The Lisbon Diario de Noticias announces that the
authorities of St. Thomas in the Gulf of Guinea
have discovered a conspiracy for the separation of
the island from Portugal, Arms and documents
were found in the house of a Portuguese merchant
who has committed suicide.
FRANCE.-Paris, June 2.-M. Duverdier, Presi-
dent of the Municipal Council, was arrested last
night, charged with insulting President MacMahon.
Thirty-eight new Administration appointments and
ten dismissals are published in yesterday's Gazette.
PAais, June 3.-A violent article in Le Pays,
openly recommending a coup d'etat under certain
1 circumstances, causes much comment.
A conspicuous note in the Moniteur announces
that on the 16th the Government will meet an in-
terpellation on President MacMahon's message, and
and after a vote will call on the House to discuss
the budget. If the House refuses the Government
will apply to the Senate for permission to dissolve
the Chamber.


Late from the United States and
Europe.
The Mail Steamer Canima, Captain Liddicoat,
arrived at her wharf in this town at four o'clock
on Sunday in 63 hours from New York.
We are indebted to Captain Liddicoat, 1st Offi-
cer Mr. Whitter, Mr. Gale, purser,' and Mr. Har-
ding, for files of New York papers up to the after-
noon of the 7th instant.

Mr. Edward Trowbridge of New Haven of the
well known firm of Trowbridge & Co., of Barbados,
died at Bridgetown, Barbados,on the 12th May: a
genuine case of hydrophobia. He had been bitten
by a dog, which he was caressing about 6 weeks be-
fore ; the circumstance was almost forgotten. On
the evening before he died, while attempting to
drink a glass of water, he was suddenly seized with
an attack of hydrophobia.
The suit of the people of the City of New York,
against Peter B. Sweeny, a member of the Ring,"
has been compromised by his Brother James M.
Sweeny becoming it is said responsible for the sum
of $400,000, and this is only a small fraction of the
$7,000,000 which the city claims. It is said that
Tweed has been instrumental in bringing about
this arrangement.
Commander W. S. Schley of the U. S. monitor
Ajax has been arrested at Norfolk, Va., for refusing
to obey the instructions of the Quarantine Officer
at that place. The penalty for such disobedience
is a fine of $500 and six months imprisonment.

LATEST WAR NEws.-From the Montenegrin
frontier we hear that the Turks are encountering a
stout resistance from the hardy peasants who are
fighting for hearth and home.-The Danube is falling
andherefore important movements may be expected
in that portion of the Theatre of War.-The Czar
has joined the army in person and met with an en.
thusiastic reception.-The Sultan, it is said, will at
, the end of the present week place himself at the
head of the army of the faithful.-A Court Martial
is about to try some Circassian Regiments in the
Russian Service who mutinied and refused to serve
against their Moslem'co-religionists.-The insubor-
dination among the Circas-sian Regiments in Rou-
mania is spreading and threatens to assume gigan-
tic proportions.-The Germans have Officers at the
Russian head-quarters who report fully on the
condition of the Russian Army and the operations
of the campaign.-Austria appears to be pre-
paring for the worst. Orders have been
issued forbidding any man belonging to the Reserve
to leave his district. Large trains of ammunition
are said to have passed through Pesth on their way
to their frontier.-To avoid wounding Austria's
susceptibilities the proposed interview between
the Emperor Alexander and Prince Milan has been
abandoned.-Greece, for the first time in her his-
tory, has united in supporting the Government;
great is the exultation among the people at this
phenomenon, the soldiers and sailors especially are
in the highest spirits, and there is scarcely a doubt,
but that Greece will take part in the War.
On the 4th the Turks claim a victory over the
Montenegrins and Herzegovinians in the defiles of
the Kristoes'; on the 5th the Turks attacked the
position of General Montrovics on Martinitzan
ground, they fell into a trap and were completely
routed with the loss of 1,000 dead. The Montene-
grins lost fifty killed. The number of wounded has
not been ascertained.
In ministerial circles in England there is a re-
newal of the uneasiness felt. when war was declared.
Russia will early overcome Turkey and be able to
dictate her est rank in England believe that the British
Government must be involved and declare that so
far little hais been done to prepare for such a con-
tingency. 'Furthermore there is a belief that our
Government will be left alone to carry out and de.
fend its own policy.
A cons iracy has been discovered in Servia, to
depose Prince Milan and to substitute the Prince of
Montendgro.
An Italian corvette, with 600 men on board, has
come to grief in the Dardanelles by striking a tor.
pedo.
On the Tth several dispatches confirmed the re-
port that at Bucharest Martial law is about to be
proclaimed. The Russian police, owing to the re.
putation of l4oumania a a gathering place oftihe-
Poles, and other turbulent characters, deemed it
necessary to take even more than usually severe
precautions for the safety of the Czar.

The Neutrality of the Suez Canal.-LoNDoN, June
6.-In the House of Commons this afternoon a dis.
patch was laid on the table addressed by Lord Der-
by to Lord Lyons, British Ambassador at Paris,
May 16. Lord Derby informs Lord Lyons that
Great Britain had declined the proposal of M. de
Lesseps to keep open the Suez Canal to all nations,
and had intimated to Russia that an attempt to
blockade or otherwise interfere with the canal or its
approaches would be regarded by England as a
menace to India and a grave injury to the commerce
of the world, incompatible with the maintenance
of the British attitude of passive neutrality. At
the same time it was intimated to the Porte and
the Khedive that England was firmly determined
not to permit the canal to be made the scene of any
combat or other warlike operations.
General Grant in London.-LownoN, June 5.-
The reception given by Minister Pierrepont to-
night in honor of ex-President Grant was a brilli-
ant affair. At least 1,000 persons were present,
comprising all the members of the Cabinet (except
Lord Beaconsfield, who is ill), almost the entire
diplomatic corps, (including the Japanese and

KINGSTON, Jamiaca, May 20.-Very heavy tropic-
al rains have fallen in Jamaica, and in the neigh-
borhood of Spanish Town more than a thousand
acres of cultivated lands are under water, the gov-
ernment engineer having permitted the mouth of
the Rio Cobre to become clogged with debris. It
will cost more than $9,000 to clear it. Enormous
damage to property, including the destruction of a
part of the, railroad, has in consequence ensued.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sin,-Will you kindly permit me through the
medium of your columns to say a word in reference
to the race of Thursday last, between the boats of
the 1" Bermuda" and "Warwick" Rowing Clubs ?
In a paragraph in Saturday's Bermudian it is stated
that in consequence of one of the boats (the War-
wick) capsizing, the race could not be contested. As
one of the crew of the Warwick boat I feel bound to
say that the race was fairly won by our opponents
some time before our boat was capsized-owing
mainly to unforseen trouble with our bow and
stroke oars-to say nothing of our having collided
with the Bares' buoy. Justice to our opponents
compels me to say that in my opinion at least the
race was over, as far as we were concerned, before
the occurrence which set us swimming. We hope
ere long to meet our conquerors again, when we
shall strain every nerve to wipe off theremembrance
of Thursday's defeat.


Yours, &c.,

A DISTINGUISHED VISITOR.-On Saturday afternoon
a boating party saw on Pearl Island, a strange looking
bird, which on closer inspection proved to be a magnifi-
cent specimen of the Osprey or Sea Eagle ; the bird
was engaged devouring a pretty large fish which it had
captured and on being disturbed flew off to a neigh-
bouring Island, with the remains of the unlucky in-
habitant of the deep in its claws.
One of the party, a well known and enthusiastic
amateur naturalist, having his gun in the boat, landed
on the Island in the hope of adding the illustrious
-stranger to his already numerous collection of Bermu-
dian trophies, but was unsuccessful, as the Eagle, hav-
ing been disturbed, was too shy, and flew off in the di-
rection of Agar's Island, swooping down occasionally
to dip its claws in the water, and presenting to the eyes
of the disappointed sportsman, a really splendid speci-
men of a rare though occasional visitor to our shores.
We were much pleased to learn that the noble and
" humane effort of Miss A. Eve (assisted by her pupils
and others) in aid of the widow and orphans of the late
John Peniston who was unfortunately drowned on the
North side of these Islands not many weeks since--
proved quite a success. The Town Hall, Hamilton,
on Thursday evening last, on the occasion of her enter-
tainment was crowded-not only was every seat occu-
pied but many who had succeeded in getting into the
Hall had to stand during the performance. It was a
most creditable exhibition and all present were conse-
quently gratified.

children and 2 great grand children, to lament the death
of an affectionate and exemplary Father, and very
many friends to deplore the loss of a kind benefactor.-
"His end was peace."
IMr. Evans held a commission as a Justice of the
Pe:ice for these Islands up to the date of his death, ex-
tending over a period of 20 years. He also represented
his native Parish, Southampton, for many years in the
General Assembly, and occasionally held appoint-
-ments to various other important positions in the
n Colony.

RICHARD J. P. DARRELL, J. P.,
MORRIS A. M. FRITH, J. P.,
SN. A. BUTTERFIELD, J. P.

[ Comi 1Hiliathon.]
T HE fourteen days contemplated contradic-
tion of my honest claim on behalf of
the Original P. & W. C. S. is not so enormous
in bulk as I anticipated from the lavish expen-
diture of time in its manufacture. I fancy I
can see the glow of satisfaction which passed
over the features of the worthy trio, who eag-
erly sought the first Gazette of Tuesday last to
see if print made its misrepresentations more
plausible. I pity Mr. John Wilson for being
duped so far as to be induced to sign his name
to such an effusion; but his prompters, know-
ing they were vulnerable in certain points
mentioned, chose him as a medium, no doubt
under the impression that they would not get
hit while he showed himself as target, who
(poor fellow) has been induced to make a mis-
representation of other's failures, a true type
of his own together with his supporters. Now
I will proceed to divest his a ,',.:i., : of its
falsity. The first section I will pass over with
this comment, that, though deficient of mate-
rial in my first, it shall be amply supplied in
this, and that truthfully. Mr. Darrell's resig-
nation was never accepted even by those who
now oppose. Mr. Robinson never was a re-
corded member of the P. & W. C. S., but an
occasional performer. The united members
of the P. & W. C. S. never elected him; a few
secessionists must have done that without their
sanction. On the whole that resolve is of very
recent date and very shallow, for it was never
proclaimed until the departure from Bermuda
of that excellent Gentleman (whose name he so
often mentions in his advertisement) to whose
principles the p'r.1,.ling (had the mutual ver-
bal explanation he requested been granted)
would have been abhorrent; but Mr. Robin-
son decidedly refused to face us, as he knew
his clandestine proceeding would be over-
thrown. Let Mr. W. or Mr. R. assert whatever
they please; I know their faculties are not so
clouded as not to perceive that they have not
that coveted society whose right is that name
P. & W. C. S., the members of which unani-
mously acknowledge Mr. T. R. Darrell as Mas-
ter, and which members are the large majority
and encore party of the identical Society who
performed at Mount Langton on two occa-
sions by request, who are ready at any time so
to prove themselves, in voice or in feature, in-
dividually or collectively. Mr. R..wanted the
performers: he has not got them. The name
will be of service to him through its hard-
earned popularity under Mr. D's. management.
Mr. D. never acknowledged any private tuition
from Mr. R. (who I know from experience is
vain enough to suggest as much); on the con-
trary, Mr. R. has acknowledged to me that his
first idea of music was gained from Mr. D.
On the basis of misdemeanor Mr. W. and his
supporters would be put hors de combat, but I
shall not particularise. Mr. W. in justice
could acknowledge by whose sole efforts and
through whose instrumentality those valuable
requisitions came, but his judgment is warped.
As to Mr. Wilson's libel (concerning the two
communications), which I am prepared honor-
ably to rebut, he (Mr. W.) is to tender me a
written apology within five days from date or
proper steps will be taken to vindicate my
cause. As to the requisitions (two of which
are from Mount Langton) being merited, we
leave that to the impartial judgment of that
honorable assemblage of ladies and gentlemen
who witnessed those entertainments. The
Operas, Oratorios, &c., mentioned, may be
something to eat for all you know by experi-
ence to the contrary. The performance of
" Qui Tollis and Quoniam tu Solus," from
Haydn's Imp. Mass in D, pleased those at
whose special request the Society attended,
among whom were efficient impartial critics;
but we did not expect it to please you, whose
expressed opinion ere this has been the reverse,
but now your judgment, if any, is warped by
opposition. On the reappearance of Mr. D's.


Society in Hamilton I am commissioned ver-
bally to substantiate the rightful claim of the
Society, as it is not my aim to make a display
of folly in print and retire with a you can't fail
to perceive idea that my opinion must be en-
dorsed by the public. At that time you will
perceive that the familiar faces so ignored by
you will materially assist in establishing our
claim in the opinion of unprejudiced and im-
partial patrons. On the whole your attitude
invokes to my mind the words of the immortal
bard-
"0 judgment thou art fled to brutish beasts,"
And men have lost their reason."


Very truly yours,
J. ANDERSON,
Secretary P. 4 W. C. S.

given him an only alternative. If he deems it
advisable he may avail himself of the opportu-
nity ere it be too late.

A RAFFLE FOR FREEDOM.
We translate from a German sketch of American
travel the subjoined account of an incident alleged
to have occurred on a Mississippi steamboat a short
time before the war.
"I ascended the Mississippi," says the writer,
"on a steamer on board of which were Judge J-
and General K-, of Pennsylvania, with both of
whom I was slightly acquainted.
'A hard set, these Natchezmen," said the cap-
tain, who met us on the cabin stairs; "There's
some of them down in the saloon playing a high
game. How men can be such fools, I could never
see! "
Let's go down and look on awhile," suggested
the judge.
"In the saloon we found four men seated at a
table, around which a crowd of spectators was
gathered. The four were the heavy players."
The game was poker, and the money changed
hands rapidly. We had not been looking on long,
when one of the players, a middIck-s d man, who I
learned was a cotton-planter, bet his last dollar
against the hand of one of his antagonists. The
latter showed four kings, while he had only four
queens. He was "cleaned out," and rose as though
be were going to leave the table.
Are you broke, colonel ?" asked one of the men.
"'Dead !" was the laconic reply.
'Never mind; I'll lend you."
'No; I can make a raise, I reckon-Here,
Pomp!"
'Bring that girl and her youngster here, that I
bought in Natchez.-Wait a few minutes, gentle-
men. I'll raise some money."
"The old regro went on his errand and soon re-
turned with the girl and her youngster. The
girl" proved to be a stately mulatto woman about
thirty-five years old. Her "youngster" was a fine,
intelligent looking boy eleven or twelve years old,
whose complexion showed him to be much more
nearly allied to the white race than to the black.
1'Here, gentlemen," said the planter, as they
entered, "you see this girl and her boy-two as fine
niggers as you can find anywhere. I paid eight
hundred dollars for them yesterday in Natchez.
Who will give me six hundred for them ?"
Will you sell them separate ?" asked some
one,
," 'No; can't do it; I promised not to. The girl
swears she'll take her life if she's separated from
her boy, and her old master said that he was sure
she'd keep her word. But don't you all see that
the girl is worth more money than I ask for both of
them ? Come, who'll give me six hundred for
both ?"
"'The planter waited a moment for a reply and
then said :
Well, I must have some money. Come, what
say you to a raffle-thirty chances at twenty dollars
a chance? Out with your cash, gentlemen. The
first on the list has the first throw !"
"This proposition created a decided stir among
all present. The three players at the table led off
by taking three chances each. Their example was
followed by the spectators, and twenty chances were
taken as rapidly as the planter could write down
the names and take the money. Then there was a
slight pause. The planter himself now took two
chances,and he was followed by histhreefellowplay-
ers, who each took one chance more. Finally,three
more chances were taken by the spectators, when
the planter cried out:
'Two chances still, gentlemen! Who will
have them ?"
"' General K- whispered something in Judge
J--'s ear, and then went to the table and laid
two ten-dollar gold pieces on it.
'Name, sir, please ?"
"'Never mind the name. Put it down for the


woman-"
Eh-what! for the girl herself ?"
Yes, certainly; let's give her a chance."
'All right! One for Ninette. And now-'
That's for the boy,' faid Judge J--, quietly,
as he laid- twenty dollars on the table.
'Good! bravo! bravo!' cried the planter and
several of the by-standers. One for Tommy, which
makes the thirty. Now, gentlemen, let's see whom
luck favors.'
The dice were brought and the throwing began,
Each chance entitled the holder to three throws.
",Thirty-six was the highest thrown until the
holder of the eleventh chance threw. He scored
forty-two. Then a less number was thiown, until
number twenty-one scored forty-nine.
"Again and again the dice rattled in the box,
until it came to number twenty-nine.
,,' Come, Ninette-its your turn now.'
"As the poor woman came forward, her hands
crossed and pressed convulsively against her
breast, it was truly painful towitness her agitation,
Won't the gentleman that took the chance for
me please throw?" she asked in a low tremulous
tone.
"' No, let your boy throw,' replied the gene-
ral; perhaps he would have more luck than I.'
"' Come Tom,' said the planter.
"Tom came forward and picked up the box.
The woman pressed her lips closely together and
clasped her hands as if in prayer. The boy trem-
bled like -r. ;.;.e, C. but shook the dice and
threw---hree !
",For a mment he "': a t. .n J.-t as though he
could u.i believe his eyes, then he put down the

"' C,.ir -l1 said Jude J--,'that one was your
mother's. Now throw for yourself, on the chance I
gave you. a stout heart, my and may
"- ,ven smUle on you"
"Again the boy returned to the table and took
up the box. He '.Tr-,:'1 his lips together and did
his best to control his t..r,)' ...'- N, :t. a sound was
to be heard in the saloon but the rattling of the dice.
For a moment every man seemed to hold his breath.
"He threw.
r fives and a six-sixteen !' said the plan-
:'.. ..''i.. :-, the number, while a murmur of
-i i. .fS!,0' ran through the crowd.
"One of the by-slanders gathered up the dice
and put them in the box, and the boy threw again.
'Two sixes and a five-seventeen !'
"The excitement now knew no bounds, and the
' bravos' resounded on every hand. The boy, as he
took up the box to throw for the third and last
time, was as nearly colorless as it was possible for
him to be with his ..'* skin.

'Tommy, my boy, I congratulate you!' cried

"I will not attempt to describe the scene that

: was received with such favor that in less than five
minutes fifty dollars were collected."-F'romApple-

TURKISH MI `-PULE.
The absolute sovereignty of the Sultan, who
creates and removes officers at will, and is master of
the lives and property of all his subjects; the abso-
lute I-,i;:: of the subordinates-for every aga,
even, is as despotic in his own territory as the Sul-
tan in the capital ; the weakening of the central
power; the great amount of land held in mortmain ;
the crushing burden of taxation; the false theories
of commerce; the indolence of the ruling race; and
the wide spread venality of office-holders-all these
have produced their natural effects in the fair lands
of the Ottoman-the very garden of the world.
The most glaring and ruinous result is the rapid
depopulation of the country. Here, again, figures
will be found more powerful than words. The
three divisions of the Ottoman Empire were calcu-
lated, in 1856, to comprise 1,812,048 square miles,
with a population of 35,850,000, or 20 inhabitants
to the square mile. Compare this with England,
which, by the census of 1861, held 347 individuals
to the square mile. And yet the lands of the Turk
are the finest on the earth, where the genial sun and
the winds of heaven give a charming climate and
luxuriant soil, yielding even to the Oriental hus-
bandman a hundred for one, and :a.-!L of produ-
cing four hundred for one; where the rocky
mountain sides are not made waste by the rigor of
the skies, but can nourish rich crops of grapes and
olives; where the sun, r si.a, beyond the sacred
Euphrates, strikes his first beams on the crescent
flag, and, sinking at night beyond the Danube, sheds
his last glow on the mountain-barriers of Western
Turkey. I; Ottoman nation is the richest in the
world in extent of country, variety of climate, and
fertility of soil; it is the poorest in the world in
population and productive industry. Nine-tenths
of Mesopotamia, the richest soil under heaven, and
capable of supporting in itself forty million souls,
is a wild and desert waste. Not one-seventh of the
alluvial lands in Wallachia and Moldavia was un-
der cultivation a quarter of a century ago; and to-
day from the wasting tyranny of the Ottoman rule,
the long country inside the Balkan Range stretches
away, desolate and deserted, to the very gates of
Constantinople, sending up its wild, coarse grass to
the horses' girths.
It is in the great plains, both in Europe and
Asia, that the most ruinous waste and saddest decay
are seen. The cavalry of the tyrannous pashas has
swept the country as with a broom, It is a Tur-
kish proverb that where the hoof of the Turkish
horse has trod no grass will grow." But in the
rugged mountain ranges, where the horseman
dreads to enter, and where leaden death flashes
from every rock, the population is steadily and
rapidly increasing. Unable to escape the oppres-
sion of the pashas, the dwellers on the plains have
gradually left their rich and sunny fields and fled
to the mountains. One may ride for days over the
broad levels, meeting with few people of any sort,
and with scarcely one Turk. But if he cares to
turn his horse into the wild paths of Servia, Bos-
nia, Bulgaria, Lebanon and the Taurus, he will find
the mountain hollows and the vales laughing with
the joy of harvests and every nook merry with the
a: :.- .at children of freemen.
It is mainly the rayahs, however, who take refuge
in the hills. The Moslems, who can no longer en-
dure the tyranny of their own rule, flock chiefly to
the towns. The country is drained of its most
useful class, the producers, and the cities receive a
fitful and unhealthy stimulus. It is doubtless this
that has deceived so many travellers in Turkey as
to the condition of the empire. There is, in truth,
an increase of population in many large towns;
but, when its cause is considered, it is seen to be,
not a sign of prosperity, but the strongest indica-
tion of decay. It is the source of that fearful
evil peculiar to Turkey-not in its mere existence,
but in its magnitude and ruinous results-the
countless multitude of idlers, vagabonds, and use-
less servants, that overrun the traveller in every
Moslem street. There are between two and three


millions of these-some of them nominally or ac-
tually attached to pashalic establishments or the
homes of the wealthy, but all of them required to
be fed by the crops which they do nothing to raise;
lounging luxuriously in the shades of the mosques,
while the husbandmen toil in the smiting sun to
feed them ; crying Backshish !" to every passer-by
while the labouring swain is shouting "Kola!" to
his ploughing team.
While the fields, thus ':-.: .'.e:d, are returning to
a state of Nature, even the cities themselves are
falling to decay. Through all the centuries it has
been held that no one, not even Turks, can hold
real estate in 1,-. .. right. W hen a .:... ,. .

" Eau" of Dr. H oltz for
HAIR DYE.

rFHIS 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.

RIGOLLOT'S
M- MUSTARD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals ot. 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 the remedy, are the problems which M.
Rigollot has solved in the most conclusive and sa-
tisfactory manner. Rigollot's Sinapism in leaves
will, therefore, be found in every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer-
gency renders it an invaluable remedy fur various
disorders.
(Signed) A. BOUCHARDAT
Annuairetherapentique 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 is
in important Healing Agent. To children, weak,
and nervous persons, I strongly recommend the fol-
1lwing method of graduating the action of the plas-
ter according to the will or condition of the patients
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.
