musical jury has but stamped the seal of the
American Centennial Exhibition upon the gener-
ally awarded verdict of every vocalist and musi-

WEBER, of New York, for sympathetic, fine and
rich tone combined with greatest power as shown
in three styles, Grand, Square and Upright Pi-

" Eau" of Dr. foltz (or
HAIR DYE.


'r1lIS WATER ie of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. HOLTZ'S Hair D)ye 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, DR. 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 hlie succeeded to
compound a dye which may be styled as the
Regenerator by excellence of the chevelure.

Capt. Williams, of the Schr. Hound, who arrived from
Cuba on Thursday last, reports :-Sailed from Bermuda
S3rd May, bound to Cuba. It commenced raining on the
8th and continued till the 3rd June, making 26 days.
At no time was there an interval of 24 hours without
rain. On the homeward passage was boarded by a boat
in the Crooked Island Passage, and was informed that
it had been raining there for three weeks-an unusual
thing for the season of the year-and that the salt crop
e would suffer a good deal.

On the 9th, during a very heavy fog at sea, a sailor fell
overboard from the .hellerophoi and was drowned.
Life buoys were thrown to him, and boats were
lowered, but the search of an hour and a half proved
unavailing.
The 21st of June, the anniversary of the Natal Day
of the City of Halifax, Nova Scotia, is to be celebrated

jack-knife, immediately above the Deep Palmar
Arch, injuring the internal Palmar Branch of the
Median nerve. The accident occurred about the
4th, Mr. Davis was not landed here till the 12th,
when symptoms of tetanus appeared, but were
averted. Case progressing favourably.
The Sarah had cut in" two whales shortly be-
fore Mr. Davis left to come ashore in the Pilot-

There was a rumour in this Town on Tuesday last,
that a sailor who had arrived here some two or three
weeks before, in a schooner from Halifax, had been dis-
covered to have the small pox. Search was made for him
and when found he was submitted to the inspection of the
Health Officer : that he had some eruptive skin disease
was manifest, and the Mayor of Hamilton was prompt
in ordering his removal to the old Lunatic Asylum,
used some few months since for small pox patients. It
was soon however ascertained that the man was not suf-
fering from small pox, but from a not much less serious
cutaneous disease. The man underproper treatment is
now recovering.

Colonial Legislature.
By appointment, His Honor the Acting Gov-
ernor came down to the Council Chamber at 12
noon, on Tuesday last, for the purpose of receiv-
ing the Address of H. M. Council in reply to His
Honor's Speech at the opening of the Session. Af-
ter the usual prelimniinaries, the Honorable William
H. Gosling, the Senior Member present, presented
the Address of that Honorable Body, which, with
His Honor's reply, we subjoin:
ADDRESS.
May it please Your Honor ;
We, Her Majesty's most dutiful and loyal sub-
jects, the Legislative Council of Bermuda, beg to
offer our thanks for the speech with which Your
Honor has been pleased to open the present Session.
2. His Excellency Major General Lefroy,
C.B., having left Bermuda, his term of Office hav-
ing expired, it is with pleasure that we receive the
announcement that the Government has devolved
upon your Honor, pending the arrival of the newly
appointed Governor Brigadier General Laffan, R.E.
3. We will be ready to entertain the subject
of the completion of the Light House on St. Da-
vid's Island, and be prepared to consider any ap-
propriate grant wtich may be submitted to us for
that purpose.
4. We are aware of the importance of provid-
ing for an Official Survey of Vessels transferred in
these Islands from F Foreign Flag, to the British Flag,
or admitted, for the first time, to Registration here,
as well as for Surveys of other British Vessels in
reference to which complaints of unseaworthiness
may be made to the proper authorities, and any
measure for the promotion of these objects will,
when' brought before us, receive our careful consi-
deration.
5. We deem the question of Steam Communi-
cation between Bermuda and New York to be one
deserving of our earnest attention, and whenever
a Bill for the revival of this service comes before us,
we will give it that deliberation which the impor-
tance of the subject demands.
6. We thank Your Honor for informing us
of the admission of Bermuda tf the General Postal
Union, and that the uniform rates of Postage con-
templated by the Conyention, have come into oper-
ation.
7. It is satisfactory to us to be informed that
the Report of the Commission appointed to enquire
into the circumstances of the wreck and Salvage of
the British Barque Stella" has met with the high
appreciation of the Secretary of State, and any
proposal for remunerating the Commissioners will,
whenever an opportunity shall be afforded us, meet
with due consideration.
8. We are glad to receive the intimation that
His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, President
of the Royal Commission, has been graciously
pleased to place the services of the Secretary
of the Commission, at the disposal of such of Her
Majesty's Colonial Possessions as may desire to par-
ticipate in the Universal Exhibition of the Products
of all Countries, to be held in Paris in 1878.
9. We assure Your Honor that our careful
consideration shall be given to the measures which
may be submitted to us, and we earnestly hope,
under the Divine blessing, that all our deliberations
may be conducted in such a manner, and character-
ized by such a spirit, as will prove, that every
Member of this Council is actuated by a loyal devo-
tion to our Queen and to the best interest of our
Country.

REPLY.
Mr. President and Vonorable Gentlemen of the Legis-
lative ._I_.
"p h -wi-Vi i opnT,7 present BSession on
the 3list ultimo. The measures alluded to in that
Speech, though limited in number, were of great
importance, and I feel confident that in your hands
they will meet with the enlightened consideration
which they deserve.

STEAM TO NEW YORK.
With the coming trip of the Canima the service
of the Quebec and Gulf Ports Screw Steam Company
between these Islands and New York, will cease,
unless some inducement is held out by the Colon y
to the Company to continue the service. If
Steam Communication is to be continued with
New York, and we cannot see how we are to
do without it, certainly some strong inducement
should be held out to this Company-in whose ships
the public have confidence and in whose good man-
agement the greatest reliance can be placed-to
continue the work. Of indifferent steamers we
had much sad experience before the Quebec and
Gulf Steam Company took the Contract. Crazy un-
seaworthy vessels with defective machinery and in
one instance, that .we know of, the alarm of fire
was thrice given-twice assuming so serious an as-
pect that even when it was extinguished the passen-
gers were too nunerved to return to their cabins. We
trust that for the questionable possibility of saving
a few pounds we shall not be compelled to fall back
on such craft, or be left entirely to sailing vessels.
We see by the proceedings of the Honorable
House of Assembly that the sum of 2,000 has
been put on the estimate for Steam Communication
to New York for the coming financial year.
We subjoin a copy of the Petition of the Quebec
and Gulf Ports Steam Company, which has been
presented to the several branches of our Legislature
during the past week, for the continuance of the


Subsidy under last Contract, for the six additional
months which terminates with the present month,
that they have performed the service.

The Petition of the Quebec and Gulf Ports Steam-
ship Company respectfully represents:
*That in the month of January, 1873, your Peti-
tioners obtained the Contract for Steam Communi-
cation between the Bermuda Islands and New
York, in the United States, for a period of two
years. At the expiration of this period your Peti-
tioners applied for and obtained a renewal of the
said Contract, for the balance of the period for
which an appropriation had been made by the Le-
gislature, namely, to the end of the year 1876.
That immediately after your Petitioners had ob-
tained the said Contract they fitted out the Con-
tract Steamer with elegant and commodious saloons
and cabins; and went to great expense in adver-
tising the Bermuda Islands as a winter resort, and
placed passenger tickets on sale in all the principal
cities in the United States and Canada. These
efforts were the means of inducing a very large
influx of visitors to the Islands, and making them
known all over the continent.
Your Petitioners also made arrangements for the
issue of through Bills of Lading of goods for Ber- 1
muda in Great Britain and elsewhere, greatly faci- s
litating trade between these places and your Is- a
lands. I
Your Petitioners have also supplied an extra s
steamer during the crop season for the past three j
years, without subsidy, carrying the Mails and per-
forming the service with the same regularity as the t
Contract steamer.
Your Petitioners purchased the new and power-
ful steamship Bermuda" and fitted her up speci-
ally for this service.
Your Petitioners having observed that the Bill
introduced at the last Session of the Legislature
for granting a subsidy for steam service between
Bermuda and New York after the 1st January in c
the present year, was not passed, although the
principle was approved by both branches of the Leg- n
islature, unwilling that all the efforts made to orga. I
uize the service should be lost, addressed a letter to v


the Executive Government on the 20th December
last, stating that they would continue steam com-
munication between your Islands and New York
and carry the mails, the service to be performed in
all respects as under the previous Contract up to
the 1st day of July coming, in the expectation that
the Legislature before that time might renew the
grant and allow it to cover the time from the ex-
piration of the previous Contract.
Your Petitioners have performed the Service
since the 1st January last and will so continue till
the 1st July next in all respects as under their pre-
vious contract, in accordance with the terms of their
letter of the 20th December last, a copy of which is
hereunto attached.
Wherefore your Petitioners humbly pray that
your Honorable House may be pleased to grant
them payment for the service performed since the
said fi-st day of January last; and, as in duty
bound, your Petitioners will ever pray.

Manager,

THE WAR IN THE EAST.
If we are to believe the telegraphic reports which
have reached us, there has been at length some se-
vere fighting between the Montenegrins and the
Turks, consequent on the latter attempting to force
the Duga Pass. After a prolonged and bloody
contest, which lasted five days, the Turks were
compelled to fall back, with a loss of 4,000 men and
a quantity of arms left on the field. The Monte-
negrins loss on this occasion is said to be 700. These
hardy fellows doubtless availed themselves of their
knowledge of the rocks and gullies of their country.
The Princess of Wales has recovered from her
recent illness.--Nine men were rescued from
drawing, after falling from a raft below Victoria
Bridge, Montreal.--News has been received from
Sydney, New South Wales, of the success of the
Canadian exhibitors.--The clipper Canterbury has
sailed a race from New Zealand to London in sixty
five days, the fastest time on record.--A telegram
from Port Said reports reduction of water to 20
feet at the Mediterranean entrance of the Suez
Canal, thus obstructing the passage of vessels of
greater draught.---The Suez Canal, at the close
of last year, cost the Egyptian Government, in ad-
dition to the amount of shares sold to the English
Government, over 71,000,000.--The reception
given by General Badeau to General Grant, on the
9th, evening, was a brilliant affair.--The Queen
will return to Windsor on the 21st inst.--A large
number of seals were caught on the north and south
shores of Eastern P E. Island during the recent
ice blockade.---The race for the grand prize of
Paris on 10th June, was won by St. Christopher by
two lengths. Seven horses ran. Betting was 50 to
1 against St. Christopher.
LONDON. June 11.
A correspondent at Castel Nuova gives ihe fol-
lowing account of the fight at Duga Pass:
"After making his disposition with great care,
anj1Cpjgeveal important ositions in front of
PSUllefianasa advancen^Tfbatta-
lions and mountain artillery to force the defile hold
by Montenegrins, there being only one available
road, and that leading directly through Duga Pass.
The Turks sought, by dint of sheer fighting, to
seize the bends of the road so as to place their guns
in position to support the advance of the heads of
the column. The ground was favorable for this
plan of operations. For the first two days the Mon-
tenegrins slowly retired before the well-deployed
Turkish line, until the narrowing of the ground and
increasing difficulties of the road forced the Turks
to reduce their front. Then a concentrated fire of
Montenegrins delivered from every rock and gulley
of the rugged mountain slope began to tell with
frightful effect on the Turks. Amid a perfect
storm of bullets the Turkish infantry struggled on-
ward, encumbering the road with dead and woun.-
ded at every step. The guns posted before Golia
shelled the defile in advance, but with little effect,
as the Montenegrins were well covered, and suffered
only when the Turks desperately charged on them
from the rocks and brushwood.
The fighting on the third day was almost hand to
hand, combatants firing in each others faces at a
few yards distance, but although the Turks gained
ground slowly, it ,was at a terrible cost in men.
Their superior numbers enabled them to push up
supports to take the place of the slain, and it seemed
as if the head of the Turkish column of attack was
melting away as before a furnace. Notwithstanding
the stubborn bravery ofSulieman Pasha's troops,
the fourth day's fighting found them no nearer the
key of the pass, and they had already lost nearly
8,000 men. Still they endeavoured to maintain
possession of the ground they had gained at such
fearful cost. The effort was hopeless. The hardy
Montenegrins repulsed every attempt to advance,
and it became now a question of covering the re-
treat of the exhausted column. This was commen.-


ced by a furious slaughter of the Montenegrins by
the troops further in advance, but which was
quickly repulsed by a murderous fire. Retreat
now became general, and the victorious mountain-
eers speedily followed the retiring Turks killing an
immense number and re-occupying their former
position.
In this prolonged and bloody combat, lasting
over 5 days, the Turks lost over 4,000 men, and a
quantity of arms were left on the field. The vic-
torious Montenegrins lost 700; the disproportion
in the casualties being due only to the natural
strength of their position and to the necessary ex-
posure of the Turks during the attack and retreat.
The failure of the Turks to force the Duga Pass
is believed to insure capitulation of Nicsic within a
short time, but it is likely that Sulieman Pasha
may again attempt to relieve the town.
LONDON, June 11.-In the boat race on the
Thames to-day for 200 aside between L. Black-
man and Thomas Higgins, the latter won on a foul;
course from Putney to Mortlake.
The Times' despatch from Thespia says that news
has just arrived of an encounter between six Rus-
sian torpedo boats and some Turkish ironclads.
it the Sulina mouth of the Danube. The torpedo
boats were beaten off. Three were destroyed, and
some prisoners were taken. One ironclad was in -
ured.
A despatch from Athens asserts that it is untrue
hat the Porte demanded explanation of Greek ar-
maments. On the contrary, the Turkish Minister
tas been instructed to express the satisfaction of
;ultan at the formation of the new Ministry.
The non-appearance of Prince Hohenlohe, Ger-
aan Ambassador to France at the last soiree given
by Marshal MacMahon, is the subject of much
comment in the German capital.
The Russians were twice repulsed on Saturday
morning with severe loss, in attempting to cross the
)anube at Guingero. Under cover of mist, feints
were made at two other points.


Great Britain's Power on the Seas.-Peruvian re-
bels in piratical crafts have been lately making
things lively in Peruvian waters. They seized a
Peruvian war-ship, and have been levying largely
on the local commerce. Unfortunately for them-
selves, however, they committed some piratical acts
on the property of British subjects. Two British
war-ships were immediately on hand, and the rebel
cruizer ran away and surrendered to the Peruvian
naval authorities rather than face the British Arm-
strong. git is this promptness on the part of Great
Britain in protecting her own subjects,-and in
many cases, those of other nations when in danger
that secures for her naval force the respect of a'j
nations.
BRUSSELS, June 8.-Le Nord, which maintains
intimate connection with the Russian foreign office,
last night published an article about the peace ru.
mours.
PARIS, June 8.-The Odre saysithe 1)uke de Bror.
lie received a deputation of Legitimists, who de-
manded that the ministry be re-modelled according
to the view of the Royalists. Broglie replied that
President MacMahon had no intention of asking
a prolongation of his power; he would retain his
office' until 1880, but would not hold it beyond
that term, and thus closed upon the hopes which
were justified by the Constitution. The Odre adds
that President MacMahon subsequently confirmed
M. Broglie's statement. The Moniteur admits that
the meeting of the president of the republican left
was informal, but maintains the virtual accuracy
of the published accounts, which were questioned
by the Republique Francaise this morning.
The Soir says that parties which favor immediate
dissolution of Chambers appear to have gained the
upper hand. There is no probability of the Cham-
bers being prorogued the second time.
The New York World's London correspondent of
the 10th June asserts that Minister Pierrepont has
been taking steps in London to prepare for organi-
zation of Great Nicaraguan Ship Canal Company,
ex-President Grant at its head.
LONDON, June 8.-Count Schouvaloff had an in-
terview with Lord Derby to-day.
LONDON, June 9.-In the Hungarian Diat to-day
it was announced the Government would be inter-
pellated regarding the principles of its policy in the
East.

SOUTH AMERICA.
TERRIBLE RESULTS OF A TIDAL WAVE
AND EARTHQUAKE.

NEw YORK, June 11.-A Callao despatch says
that the recent earthquake and tidal waves de-
stroyed a dozen towns. Only 600 lives were lost,
Loss of property estimated at twenty million dollars.
Destruction of shipping very great. The following
is the report of shipping disasters: At Huanillos,
ship Genevia, Capt. McLean, totally lost; she sunk
15 fathoms; crew saved; loaded with guano and
ready for sea; was to have ,ailed following morn-
ing. English ship Avonmoor, total loss; Capt.
wife and three children, nurse, carpenter, and
steward drowned. Capt. Corfield was saved, though
one of his children was killed in his arms. Capt.
Freck, of barque Arctic, was on board the Avon-
moor at the time, and was drowned; the crew
saved themselves on spars and planks. English
ship Conway Castle was driven ashore, and filled.
She was throw back from the shore by a receding
wave and sank in deep water; crew and effects
were saved. English ship Conference, totally lost;
it is said she was thrown on shore and was soon
after crushed under a mass of rock that fell; crew
saved in boats. Barque Gabriel Castro, sunk with

lilliam Lovitt, badly damaged. English barque
Arelic not damaged, but Capt. Freock of that vessel,
drowned on board the Avonmoor. English ships
Conqueror, Tillery, Samuel, Eliza Campbell, and
Duke of Rothesay, damaged. Norwegian ships
Cleveland and Rigglan, damaged. American ship
Resolute was slightly damaged. American ships
C. F. Sargeant and Theobold, were slightly damaged;
the Jeremiah Thompson, was also badly damaged.
She arrived at Callao on the 16th ult. Ten other
foreign ships were damaged. On shore, the Gov.
ernor's building, condensers, tanks, wharf, and
everything except a few huts back of the town,
were destroyed. At Punta Le Lobos two vessels
were lost:-the Havre (French) and Shamrock,
(English). Fourteen ships more or less injured.
The loading fleet, or at least the survivors, must
come to Callao for repairs they require. Two ves-
sels have arrived, bringing some wretched victims
of the disaster, who are properly cared for by the
authorities. It is thought the losses are greater
than in 1868 and that effects upon Peruvian affairs,
but particularly Antofagasta, Mexillones, Tocopilla
and Cobija. Towns on coast of Bolivia met with
same misfortune of an earthquake and tidal wave
at the same time, and are in an identical condition
with Iquique and Arica. At Autofagasta the at-
mosphere was illuminated by red glare, supposed
to proceed from volcano of San Pedro. At Acama,
few leagues in interior the sea completely swept
the business portion of the town. During four
hours vessels in the harbor stood out, and the
steamer Amazonas, about to commence discharging
when movement took place had narrowly escaped
from destruction. Several lives were lost. Mex-
illones was visited by a tidal wave .sixty-five feet
high. Two-thirds of the town was completely ob-
literated. Guano shoots, wharves, launches, boats,


water distilleries, railway stations, locomotives,
cars, and furniture were all swallowed up by it.
At Mexillones six persons were drowned. At
Tocapella little or nothing remains of the town.
A mine called ," Lapena Blanc," four miles south-
ward, sank, smothering 200 workmen, of whom
40 were Cornish miners. Captain of steamer John
Elder reports that on the 9th, at 8-30 p.m., 23 miles
west of Antofagasta, coming north at full speed,
his ship was completely stopped by shock of earth-
quake, and she remained almost stationery for five
minutes. The passengers believed she had struck
a reef. Cobija, principal town on Bolivian coast,
lost three fourths of its houses. A wave thirty-
five feet high swept along the main business street,
and left it as level as the desert. Wharves and
launches all carried out to sea. Church spire
knocked over, and cemetery' suffered. All those
towns in greatest distress. Water is wanted ; the
condensers being on the very sea shore were the
first objects overwhelmed by the waves. The
Panama Herald says: From the interior of Boli-
via it is more than difficult to send supplies to the
coast, and men are hopeful that Chili nlay have
stretched a helping hand to the unfortunates.
Chili escaped without injury. Northern ports of
Peru were damaged but little, although the sea was
running remarkably high. On the evening of the
14th, Lima, and Callao were visited by a very
severe shock of earthquake lasting twenty-two
seconds, which caused general alarm, but little
damage. Fears were entertained that it might
have been second edition of the Southern disaster,
but a telegram from Moblendo announced that no
repetition of the catastrophe had taken place.
Nevertheless, so frightened were the people of Cal-
lao that they emigrated almost en masse to Lima
and Bellevista, fearful lest their town might be
engulfed by wave, that wave which generally
follows those convulsions of nature. The Govern-
ment of Lima chartered the steamer Capiapo, and
organizing a relief commission they loaded the
vessel with provisions, clothes, &c., together with
some fifty thousand gallons of water, and dispatch-
ed her on the 16th for the South.

DEAR SIR,-If the Bill which I have submitted

Southampton, 18th June, 1877.


The Right Reverend Dr. Kelly, Bishop of New-
foundland, having accepted the vicarage of Kirby
near. Liverpool, took passage in the Steamship Hi-
bernian, which left St. Johns, Nfid., on the 24th May
for England. Prior to his leaving highly com-
plimentary addresses were presented to His Lord-
ship by the Executive Committee and Synod of the
Diocese and by the Select Vestry of the Cathedral
of St. Johns, to which His Lordship replied in
most suitable terms.
The Rev. F. R. Murray, late Rural Dean of
Twillingate, has been appointed by the Lord Bishop
of the Diocese, to the Incumbency of the cathedral
Church in St. Johns, Nfid.
LU1BEIIXG IN NEWFOUNDLAND.-The barque Poho-
no, has been chartered at Sydney, C. B., for Mr. D.
11. Pitts, of this city, to load timber at Boone Bay,
Nffd., for Liverpool, G.B. We understand Mr. Pitts
has had gangs of men lumbering in the interior of
Newfoundland during the past winter and has already
boomed 2200 tons pine timber at Boone Bay and Bay
of Islands for shipment to Europe.
THE SEAL FISHERY.-The grand total of the seal
fishery for the current year embraces a catch of
412,000 seals. Of these about 43,000 belong to the
second trip, and are chiefly old seals. Harbour
Grace claims 99,000, all of which have been manu-
factured by John Munn & Co. In point of number
and weight the year has been a good one, but the
depreciation in value has reduced the result to an
average one. Only this and nothing more- Dun-
dee has drawn the second prize; St. Johns holds
the first, even on white horses.-St. Johns Chronicle.
THE GEORGE WASHINGTON" WRECK.-The div-
ing schr. Nimble, Capt. John Stone, arrived yester-
day from the wreck of the American steamer George
Washington, at Cape Race, Nfld. She brought the
machinery, anchors and chains of the wrecked
steamer. Capt. Stone reports that the cargo had
been all washed away by the sea, and the boiler of
the ship blew up. Nothing of the wreck of the
George Cromwell could be found.-Halifax Reporter,

REMARKABLE RESCUE.-We find the following in a
late Halifax (N.S.) paper: On the 9th May, at mid-
night, the schooner Codseeker, Capt. Brown, was cap-
sized off Sable Island. The captain and two of the I
crew got into a small boat which was on the schooner's
deck at the time, and drifted away. They succeeded
in getting to the shore, and by daylight of the follow-
ing morning a schooner was despatched to the rescue
of the others of the crew, four of whom were found
lashed to the vessel's side ; the others, it was thought,
were either drowned in the cabin or washed overboard
at the time of the accident. A gale of wind coming
on the wrecked vessel was left to drift just as the wind
might drive her. On the 13th the wrecked schooner
was fallen in with 17 miles S. S. W. of Seal Island,
by the American schooner Ohio, Captain Edwin 0.
Dorr, of Bucksport, Maine, and was boarded by him-
self and two of his crew. Captain Dorr fancied he I
heard sounds proceeding from the forecastle, the
gangway leading to ~e ich was entirely under water.
-l 1swann I i1' --- I'L.n..
pings from within. He cut a hole into the vessel s
side by the forechains and took from the forecastle two
of the crew, James Edwin Smith and Samuel Atwood,
who had been shut up in that place from the time of
the accident until Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock with-
out light, water or food, with the exception of a few
small cakes. Capt. Dorr landed these men at their
own home early on Monday morning.

THE BRIDGE DISASTER IN ENGLAND.
The details of the fall of the suspension bridge at
Bath, England, show that at about 10-30 o'clock on
the morning of the 5th inst, on the arrival of a train-
load of excursionists on the Weymouth branch of the
Great Western Railway to attend the agricultural
show, between one hundred and two hundred persons,
belonging mostly to the well-to-do farmer class, rushed
upon the toll-bridge leading from the railroad plat-
form. The bridge was wooden, of light construction,
narrow, about thirty feet long, between thirty and forty
feet above the River Avon, resting upon posts mor-
ticed into stonework at either end, and without a cen-
tral support. The bridge snapped in the centre, and
the two ends were wrenched clear from the sides.
The whole mass, with the people, was plunged into
the middle of the stream, which was about seven feet
deep. Boats from the shore were immediately set at
work rescuing the living and searching for the dead.
At the last report it was believed that about twelve
persons had been killed and fifty injured.

MISERARLE CONDITION OF THE TURKISH
TROOPS.
A correspondent of the Journal de Geneve, writing
from Constantinople, gives a deplorable account of the
medical and sanitary necessities of the Turkish troops.
IHe says that the medical staff does not exceed one per
one thousand strength, and he writes most contemptu-
ously of the sort of men who form the staff. He de-
scribes them, indeed, as for the most part apprentices
in the art and science of medicine, without culture,
and who possesses only such a smattering of physic and
surgeryas may be picked up in the Turkish medical
school at Constantinople.
This correspondent says, moreover, that the Turkish
forces are in want of medicines, bedding, litters, am-
bulances, and surgical and medical necessaries of all
descriptions, ofe also asserts that even thus early in
war the question arises, How are the troops to be fed ?
As to the medical and sanitary wants, the Turks bel
lieve that help will come from England; but as to foop
he asks, Where will this come from ? Turning the
Russian side, we find a medico-sanitary organization
which, so far as it can be judged before it is fully test-
ed by the exigences of the field and of actual warfare
would seem to be complete, while the military organ-
ization is being supplemented by voluntary efforts of
the people at large for aiding the sick and wounded
almost unique in their character.

MONTREAL, June 5.-Lieutenant Colonel La-
branche, of Sixty-fifth Mounted Royal Rifles, has
received a letter from the Horse Guards acknow-
ledging with thanks the offer to raise a regiment of
Canadians for service in the East should England
become involved in war. Colonel Labranche is in
receipt of letters from gentlemen in all part of the
Province who are willing to join him.

RIGOLLOT'S


MUSTARD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals of Pars, Field
and Military Hospital, by the
English Royal Navy and
the French National
Navy, &c.
To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few
moments a decided result wiih the smallest possible
quantity of the remedy, are the problems which M.
Rigollot has solved in tlie most conclusive and sa-
tisfactory manner. Rigollot's Sinapismn in leaves
will, therefore, be found it every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer-
gency renders it an invaluable remedy for various
disorders.
(Signed) A. BOUCHIARDAT
Annuairethdrapentique 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.
wing 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.
