ROWING.
On Thursday last the races of the Bermuda Row-
ing and Cricket Club were commenced in Hamilton
Harbour. The first race was rowed by Mr. Dar-
rell's crew against Mr. Gray's, the result being, af-
ter a neck and neck race throughout, a dead heat.
The next race was between Mr. A. D. Gilbert's and
Mr. Steevens's crews, and was won easily by the
latter. The rowing .was a great improvement on
last years, and the four crews turned out were very
creditable to the Club.
The dead heat between Mr. Gray's and Mr. Dar-
rell's crews will be rowed off this afternoon (wea-
ther permitting), or if not, on Thursday or the first
suitable day afterwards.
The day for rowing the final heat between the
winner and Mr. Steevens's crew cannot of course be
yet fixed with certainty.

the cool south wind from over the water in
Summer and protected from the winter storms
by the Hills to the North. Its situation as a
Store cannot be surpassed.

W HEREAS I have received from the Right
Honorable the EARL OF CARNARVON,
one of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of
State, the, following copy of a Proclamation for
the maintenance of Neutrality, which, with the
advice of Her Privy Council, Her Majesty has
issued, in consequence of the existing State of
War between Russia and Turkey, as follows :-
BY THE QUEEN.
A PROCLAMATION.
VICTORIA R.
WHEREAS We are happily at peace with all
Sovereigns, Powers, and States :
And whereas, notwithstanding Our utmost
Exertions to preserve Peace between all Sov-
ereign Powers and States, a State of War un-
happily exists between His Majesty the Em-
peror of All the Russias and His Majesty the
Emperor of the Ottomans, and between their
respective Subjects and others inhabiting
within their Countries, Territories, or Domin-
ions :
And whereas We are on Terms of Friendship
and amicable Intercourse with each of these
Sovereigns, and with their several Subjects
and others inhabiting within their Countries,
Territories, or Dominions:
And whereas great numbers of Our Loyal
Subjects reside and carry ont Commerce, and
possess Property and Establishments, and en-
joy various Rights and Privileges, within the
Dominions of each of the aforesaid Sovereigns,
protected by the Faith of Treaties between Us
and each of the aforesaid Sovereigns :
And whereas, We being desirous of preserv-
ing to Our Subjects the Blessings of Peace
which they now happily enjoy, are firmly pur-
posed and .determined to' maintain a strict and
impartial Neutrality in the said State of War
unhappily existing between the aforesaid Sove-
reigns :
We, therefore, have thought fit, by and with
the Advice of Our Privy Council, to issue this
Our Royal Proclamation:
And We do hereby strictly charge and com-
mand all Our loving Subjects to govern them-
Sselves accordingly, and to observe a strict Neu-
trality in and during the aforesaid War, and to
abstain from violating or contravening either
the Laws and Statutes of the Realm in this
Behalf, or the Law of Nations in relation
thereto, as they will answer to the contrary
at their Peril:
And whereas in and by a certain Statute
made and passed in a Session of Parliament
holden in the 33rd and 34th Year of Our'
Reign, intituled An Act to regulate the

State or such Agent, and is employed in the Mili-
tary or Naval Service of such Foreign State, such
Ship shall, until the contrary is proved, be deemed

ed, and the Burden shall lie on the Builder of such
Ship of proving that he did not know that the
Ship was intended to be so employed in the Mili-
tary or Naval Service of such Foreign State.

Act shall be liable to be tried and punished as a
principal O0fi,. ."

provided that S1T',i built, commissioned,
'-ij-"i_ ':1, or ,: :..t,:'.. 1 in contravention of
the said Act, .:_. be condemned and forfeited
by Judgment of the Court of, Admiralty';

Executive Authority is .i-'.i:.i that there is
a reasonable and '.:i Cause for believing
that a Ship within Our Dominions has been
or is being'..i, ('.Ls,:[inission 1, or equipped,
contrary to the said Act, and is about to be
taken beyond the Limits of such Dominions,
or that a Ship is about to be despatched con-
trary to the Act, such Secretary of State, or
Chief Executive Authority, shall have Power
to issue a Warrant authorising the Seizure


and Search of such Ship and her Detention
: until she has been either condemned or releas-
ed by process of Law: And whereas certain
Powers of Seizure and Detention are confer-
red by the said Act on certain Local Authori-
ties :
Now, in order that none of Our Subjects
may unwarily render themselves liable to the
Penalties imposed by the said Statute, We do
hereby strictly command, that no Person or
Persons whatsoever do commit any Act, Mat-
ter, or Thing whatsoever contrary to the Pro-
visions of the said Statute, upon Pain of the
several Penalties by the said Statute imposed,
and of Our high Displeasure.
And we do hereby further warn and ad-
monish all Our loving Subjects, and all Per-
sons whatsoever entitled to Our Protection,
to observe towards each of the aforesaid Sove-
reigns, their Subjects and Territories, and to-
wards all Belligerent whatsoever, with whom
We are at Peace, the Duties of Neutrality; and
to respect, in all and each of them, the Exer-
cise of those Belligerent Rights which We
and Our Royal Predecessors have always
claimed to exercise.
And We hereby further warn all Our loving
Subjects, and all Persons whatsoever entitled
to Our Protection, that if any of them shall
presume, in contempt of this Our Royal Proc-
lamation, and of Our high Displeasure, to do
any Acts in derogation of their Duty as Sub-
jects of a Neutral Sovereign in a War between
other Sovereigns, or in violation or contraven-
tion of the Law of Nations in that Behalf, as
more especially by breaking, or endeavouring
to break, any Blockade lawfully and actually es-
tablished by or on behalf of either of the said
Sovereigns, or by carrying Officers, Soldiers,
Despatches, Arms, Ammunition, Military
Stores or Materials, or any Article or Articles
considered and deemed to be Contraband of
War according to the Law or modern Usages
of Nations, for the Use or Service of either of
the said Sovereigns, that all Persons so offend-
ing, together with their Ships and Goods,
will rightfully incur and be justly liable to
hostile Capture, and to the Penalties denounc-
ed by the Law of Nations in that Behalf.
And We do hereby give Notice that all Our
Subjects and Persons entitled to Our Protec-
tion who may misconduct themselves in the
Premises will do so at their Peril, and of their
own Wrong; and that they will in nowise ob-
tain any Protection from Us against such Cap-
ture, or such Penalties as aforesaid, but will,
on the contrary, incur Our high Displeasure by
such Misconduct.
Given at Our Court at Windsor,
this Thirtieth Day of April,
in the year of Our Lord One
thousand eight hundred and
seventy-seven, in the Forti-
eth Year of Our Reign.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN.
I do therefore issue this my Proclamation,

W HEREAS I have received from the Right
Honorable the EARL OF CARNARVON,
one of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of
State, a Letter from the Right Honorable the
EARL OF DERBY, from which will be learned
Her Majesty's pleasure on various matters con-
nected with the hostilities which have broken
out between Russia and Turkey, as follows :-

Foreign Office, April 30th, 1877.
MY LORDS,
Her Majesty being fully determined to ob-
serve the duties of neutrality during the exist-
ing state of war between the Emperor of all the
Russias and the Emperor of the Ottomans,
and being moreover resolved to prevent, as far
as possible, the use of Her Majesty's harbours,
ports, and coasts, and the waters within Her
i Majesty's territorial jurisdiction, in aid of the
warlike purposes of either belligerent, has com-
manded me to communicate to your Lordships,
for your guidance, the following rules, which
are to be treated and enforced as Her Majesty's
orders and directions :-
Her Majesty is pleased further to command
that these rules shall be put in force in the
United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, and the
Channel Islands, on and after the 5th of May,
instant, and in Her Majesty's territories and'
possessions beyond the seas, six days after the
day when the Governor, or other chief autho-
rity of each of such territories or possessions
respectively, shall have notified and p:. 1 :L
the same; stating in such Notification that the
said rules are to be obeyed by all persons with-
in the same territories and possessions.
1. During the continuance of the present
state of war, all ships of-war of either .. --e-
reat are prohibited from making use of ...
port or roadstead in the United Kingdom, the
Isle of Man, or the C(hnm..: Islands, or ,-....
of Her Majesty's Colonies or foreign posses-
sions or dependencies, or of any waters subject
to the territorial jurisdiction of the 1;.it '
Crown, as a station, or place of resort, for any
warlike purpose, or for the purpose of obtain-
ing any facilities of warlike equipment; and
no ship of war of either belligerent shall here-
after be permitted to sail out of or leave any


port, roadstead, or waters subject to British
jurisdiction, from which any vessel of the other
belligerent (whether the same shall be a ship
of war or a merchant ship) shall have previous-
ly departed, until after the expiration of, at
least, twenty-four hours from the departure of
such last-mentioned vessel beyond the territo-
rial jurisdiction of Her Majesty.
2. If any ship of war of either belligerent
shall, after the time when this Order shall be
first notified and put in force in the United
Kingdom, the Isle of Man, and the Channel
Islands, and in the several Colonies and foreign
possessions and dependencies of Her Majesty
respectively, enter any port, roadstead, or
waters belonging to Her Majesty, either in the
United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, or the
Channel Islands, or in any of Her Majesty's
Colonies or foreign possessions or dependen-
cies, such vessel shall be required to depart and
to put to sea within twenty-four hours after
her entrance into such port, roadstead, or wa-
ters, except in case of stress of weather, or of
her requiring provisions or things necessary
for the subsistence of her crew, or repairs; in
either of which cases the authorities of the port,
or of the nearest port (as the case may be),
shall require her to put to sea as soon as pos-
sible after the expiration of such period of
twenty-four hours, without permitting her to
take in supplies beyond what may be necessary
for her immediate use; and no such vessel
which may have been allowed to remain within
British waters for the purpose of repair shall
continue in any such port, roadstead, or waters,
for a longer period than twenty-four hours
after her necessary repairs shall have been
completed. Provided, nevertheless, that in all
cases in which there shall be any vessel (whe-
ther ships of war or merchant'ships) of the said
belligerent parties in the said port, roadstead,
or waters within the territorial jurisdiction of
Her Majesty, there shall be an interval of not
less than twenty-four hours between the de-
parture therefrom of any such vessel (whether
a ship of war or merchant ship) of the one bel-
ligerent, and the subsequent departure there-
from of any ship of war of the other belliger-
ent; and the time hereby limited for the de-
parture of such ships of war respectively, shall
always in case of necessity, be extended so far
as may be requisite for giving effect to this
proviso, but no further or otherwise.
3. No ship of war of either belligerent shall
hereafter be permitted, while in any port,
roadstead, or waters subject to the territorial
jurisdiction of Her Majesty, to take in any
supplies, except provisions and such other
things as may be requisite for the sub-
sistence of her crew, and except so much coal
only as may be sufficient to carry such vessel to
the nearest port of her own country, or to
some nearer destination, and no coal shall
again be supplied to any such ship of war in
the same or any other port, roadstead, or wa-
ters subject to the territorial jurisdiction of
Her Majesty, without special permission, until
after the expiration of three months from the
time when such coal may have been last sup-
plied to her within British waters as aforesaid.
4. Armed ships of either party are interdicted
from carrying prizes made by them into the
ports, harbours, roadsteads, or waters of the
United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, the Chan-
nel Islands, or any of Her Majesty's Colonies
or possessions abroad.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
PROPOSED SAILORS AND MARINES HOME
SAT IRELAND ISLAND.
DEAR SIR,-I shall be pleased to offer a few re-
marks on the subject of building a home" or
"Rendezvous" for the Sailors and Marines, during
their stay at Bermuda, wishing to point out in many
instances what inconvenience will arise from the
same if it is, as proposed by the Committee, estab-
lished on the old Clerk of Works' Buildings situated
in the vicinity of Lodge Point and in close proxim-
al, ity to the Royal Naval Hospital, a spot where the
I poor convalescing Seamen and Marines are laying
ry, about and do not desire to have any noise or any
irregularities that might be carried on when mus-
or tered there to spend their evenings both in going
and coming from the proposed Home-when they
:,l'pi:.:- rest to recover from their sickness. In case
st the home be near them, that instead of being com-
st fortable they will be disturbed. Can I ask whether
the Deputy Inspector and the Rev. Chaplain have
ue considered that they have not much time to remain
er at Bermuda. Would their successors like to be put
ms to the inconvenience of having a large number of
as men returning home, from the home or club at all
hours of the night, and as in cases that Lhave wit-
nessed for the past 15 years to see a quantity of
p- men returning off leave the worst for drink and
n- other causes easier imagined than described.
Whereas if this Home was built at Hamilton or
S Somerset it would be better for the inhabitants of
these Islands, for when men are returning from
Somerset, some perhaps more or less inebriated
forget which road their on; the result will be that
they will knock at any persons house and enquire
le for the Sailor's Rendezvous, as it is called, and dis-
turb the inmates after a hard day's toil, in this en-
a ervating climate, (which all the Mechanics and
al others have to do in Her Majesty's Naval Estab.
nt lishments) and would find it very inconvenient to
e. turn upon them that have come from the same land
s as themselves, without giving them the right direct.
e tion and yet annoyed at being disturbed and per.
w haps insulted as. is often the case, as I, and my
of neighbours, have experienced. I see by youi
Paper of the 5th June the worthy Chairman ex-
pressed his feelings, and said that he was sorry tc
o say that the men who went on leave and passed tc
o. Somerset could not be provided with good accom-
modation there. I beg to differ with him on that
e point. I have been a resident of Ireland Island and
he Somerset for the last 15 years, have visited two or
more very respectable houses at the latter place, and
H have seen as many as 60 Sailors and Marines from one
S ship supplied with good clean beds, good suppers and
C breakfasts, and at as low a sum as they could get
N them in England, and have left the house thorough-
ly contented at the treatment they had received
M from the Host and Hostess. I am sure that if it
D was suggested to the same entertainers they would
R be willing to do the same in future. There is one
:great fault often occurs here with the Seamen and
- Marines, that is they have no where else to spend
the few hours that is given to them. They make
ie the best of their way to Somerset by road and have
to call in to the half-way house and served up with
refreshments to kill time. Some 2 or 3 years ago it
- was the practice when leave was given, for a Boat
from each ship to be sent with the men to the pub-
lic wharf at Somerset and return with the men at
o night to their ships in safety. This would save a large
amount of crime and many could go to their hammocks
h' instead of laying in the Guard Room till the morning
e because they could not pass the gate after 9 o'clock
d unless he be a Petty Officer or some other rank that
ef would save them from this inconvenience. I see
ts there is one considerate gentlemen that seems to
ct know where the best place for this home should be;
d the Captain-in-Charge who understands the feelings
of Seamen and Marines, and has studied the inhab-
itants of Ireland Island. He seems to be of the
same opinion as all other Captain Superintendents
who have been here and who should be supposed
to know the best place for a Sailors rest. In my
opinion the inhabitants should concur with the Cap-
af tmain that Hamilton or Somerset are the best places.
r Has not that gentleman wisely said that Somerset
,' would be the best place. It would be more conve-
s' nient for those who are left here during the sum-
md > e'r months. If the inhabitants were asked where
'e would they wish this home to be, the reply would
be Somerset, for many reasons. I as a constant
3f reader of your valuable paper ask to be allowed to
n find a space to have these points fully considered.
e I do agree with the President in stating that his
e opinion the best place for the Sailors Home would
y be at Somerset and as he (the President) remarked
that in 10 years every one would come to the same
opinion, but I amx under the impression that 10
months would be long enough to find out which is
the preferable spot. I should say and very many
others agree with me, that if there is a home to be
established there are suitable places at Hamilton
and Somerset that could be purchased or rented at a
f very low rate, and much better accommodation could
Sbe given than at the proposed home at Ireland
n Island. Once more, Dear Sir, I must mention
Sas to the respect of games, such as Billiards,
g Skittles, and other amusements. I know there are
e many houses ,at Somerset and Hamilton where
e those sports can be had but at present there have
e been so little leave given that the Hosts have not
Made any preparation for the inducement to all
r concerned. Hoping I have not taken up too much
r space of your valuable paper in which I have been
a constant reader and always look for the right of
our fellow creatures.
S.. I have the honor to be, Sir,


?, Yours very sincerely,

PARAFFINE OIL FOR REPELLING INSECTS AND AS A
MANURE.-In our Gazette of the 29th ultimo we
published a circular from Griffin Morris, of Hope
Chambers, Leather Lane, London (kindly sent by
Colonel Mlears, H. M. 20th Regiment to a friend in
Bermuda), in reference to the use of Paraffine Oil
f for mixing with manure for top-dressing and the
Destruction of griubs, &c.-A writer in the Dumfer-
r line Journal, relates his experience by way of using
d paraffine oil for repelling insects, in the following
t language,:
a ""My garden was overrun with rats and mice.
In' consequence I had always to sow double the
quantity of peas and beans requisite, and sometimes
. even had to sow them twice over. This year I put
I twenty-two pounds of peas and six pounds of beans
into the ground without any manure, previously
soaking the seeds for a short time in paraffine oil.
Not a tlia:l.. pea or bean has been touched and the
crop has been enormous. e My crop of onions has
every year been attacked with maggots and my
turnips with fly. For the last eight years, as soon
as the vermin made their appearance, I watered be-
tween the rows, two ounces of paraffine oil to six
gallons of water. Both magot and fly disappeared,
and crops and quality have always been extremely
fine. I believe the seed sprinkled with the oil be- ?
fore sowing, or a certain portion of paraffine
poured over dry earth and sown as guano, would
answer fully as well, and I am satisfied it is a very
powerful manure, besides an effectual remedy
against grub, wireworm and all garden pests.
Seeds sprinkled with the oil are quite safe from all
feather and insect vermin. The proportion of two
wine glassfulls of paraffine oil to six gallons of rain
water (imperial measure) is what can be applied to
all kinds of green vegetables without injury. The
growth succeeding its application is something
wonderful."

"Eau" of Dr. HIoltz for

1 -1IS 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. IloL'TZ'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 easen-
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.

grossed.
The following Message from His Honor the Act-
ing Governor:-
(No. 20.)
WILLIAM LAWTIE MORRISON,
Colonel Royal Engineers,
Acting governorr Commander-in-Chief.
The Acting Governor has the honor to acknow-
ledge the receipt of the Mess' ge dated on the 18th
inst., of the House of Assembly in reference to the
failure on the part of the Receiver General to lay
the Books of Public Account before the House in
compliance with its request made on Thursday
the 31st May, 1877, in accordance with its usual
practice.
The Acting Governor would point out to the
House that under the Act No. 28, of 1875, the ac-
counts are always open to the inspection and ex-
amination of the Assembly or any Committee ap-
pointed by it as well during the Session of the Le-
gislature as at other times, but that there is no-
thing whatever in the Act which authorizes the
House to convey an order to the Receiver General
to lay such accounts before it.
The Acting Governor cannot but object most
strongly to the supposition that the House of As-
sembly is, or can be authorized, to convey any or-
der directly to, or enter into correspondence with,
an officer of the Executive. Such a principle would
involve the destruction of all departmental discip-
line, and might place the Executive in a most un-
desirable position as regards the House.
The Acting Governor considers that the request
of the House that the Books of the Receiver Gen-
eral should be placed before it, should have been
expressed in a Message to the Governor, and the
House may be quite sure that any such Message
would have at once received all the respectful at-
tention to which would have been entitled.

THE REGISTRAR GENERAL'S ELEVENTH
ANNUAL REPORT OF BIRTHS, MARRI-
AGES AND DEATHS IN BERMUDA-1876.

It is with intense interest and gratification that
we have studied'this, the Eleventh Statistical Re-
port kindly forwarded to us by the Registrar Gene-
ral. Like its predecessors the present pamph-
let displays masterly skill in the marshalling of
figures, and philosophical depth and penetration
of a high order in tracing effects back to their cau-

In fourteen Tables which leave nothing to be de-
sired, both with regard to the fulness of their sta-
tistic information and their absolutely exhaustive
character, we have at one glance the means of learn-
ing the relative progress or retrogression of the Co-
lony for the last eleven years, i.e., from 1866 to
1876. f
We cannot possibly reproduce these Tables here,
yet as far as may be, we shall let the Report speak
for itself, merely' observing that in section 2
Mr. Tucker reminds Medical Practitioners, that
though the Legislature has attached a penalty
to the'non-delivery of certificates setting forth the
cause of death, thereby ensuring more accuracy in
Registration; yet this measure must prove utna-
vailing, unless the persons liable to the penalty,
have received the necessary document from some
member of the Medical Profession.
BIRTHS.--Including all of every race and calling
the number of births for 1876 was 503, that for the
year preceding was 569, shewing a great falling
off, and indeed being less than any annual register
of births for the last five years, that for 1871 being
the first to fill below it, when the number was 471.
With regard to the effects of birth and other
causes on population, Mr. Tucker speaks as follows:
The excess of Births over Deaths among the Civil
Population during the year 1876, was in whites 39,
(12 males and 27 females); thus these figures re-
present the natural increase of that period; and by
adding to the estimated population for 1875 the na-
tural increase ,(101) during 1876, together with the
number of soldiers (15) who have obtained their
discharge during this year with the object of set-
tling in the Colony, and in the absence so far as I
am aware of any other disturbing element, I esti-
mate the population at the close of 1876 to have
been 13,418, viz., 5,092 whites and 8,326 colored,
and on this estimate I have based the rates of
Births, Marriages and Deaths for that year."
Calling the readers attention to the Tables which
we have not space to introduce, Mr. Tucker goes on
to say "It will be observed that the natural in-
crease among the whites in 1876 exceeded by 4 that
for 1875; while the like increase among the colored
population fell short by 68 when compared with
that year. Thus the whites have added to their in-
crease for 1875 by 4, while the colored population
exhibit a deficiency of 68 when compared with
that year, the loss being borne entirely by the
births in wedlock.
We learn that among the whites there were 6
births out of wedlock during the year 1876; and 68
where the mothers were white during the eleven
years over which period this Report extends.
While among the colored there were 97 during the
same year, and 1,107 during the same period of
eleven years. After giving the percentage of these
births among the two races, and much more matter
of importance and interest, Mr. Tucker thus con-
cludes his Report on the Births : "I refrain from
availing myself of the materials at my disposal to
pursue this question further at present (he refers to
Births out of wedlock) and as I have no desire to
handle this, or any other subject embraced in this
Report in an exceptional manner', I take this op-
portunity of observing to the few members of this
community who might possibly have been deceived
by designing persons endeavouring to create a false
impression respecting the general practice of deal-
ing with Births out of wedlock ; that the Registrar
General of England, of the West Indies, and else-
where, with whose Reports I have been supplied,
invariably devote a paragraph to this class of
Births, deeming it to be embraced within the scope'
of their public duties to deal, when practicable, with
all classes of vital and even social statistics; and to
those persons who have affected to doubt the accu-
racy of my statistics on this subject, and who
may think it their interest to do so, I would re-
mark that the General Registers, from which I de-
rive my information, lie open for inspection by the
Public, under certain conditions, and thattherefore,
the means of verifying the basis on which my de-.
ductions rest, and of testing the deductions them-
sel es, are placed within their reach."
ARRIAGES.-Though the births in 1876 were so
exceptionally few in number, it is a subject of con-
gratulation that the marriages were not i the same
raiio; and therefore there is every hope that next
year the returns of births will be of a widely differ-
ent character. But to return to the Report-
There were 132 marriages in 1876, and an increase
(25) as shown when compared with 1875; indeed
the number far exceeds the average (106) for the
eleven years 1866-76; and is larger than in any
ye4r since the introduction of Registration into the
Colony.
We learn that the conditions of the contracting
pa ties were as follows-there were 16 widowers
and 16 widows, and 116 bachelors and the same
number of spinsters, a strange agreement, in fig-
ures, which would encourage the belief of a like
agreement in sentiment; yet such was not the case,
for 12 of the Widowers married Spinsters, and 4
only married Widows, the remaining widows (12)
married Bachelors. The number of mixed marria-
ge' in 1876 was 21. The Marriages among the
Military amount to 17, and among the Navy and
Marines to 2.


Touching the number of Marriages we are told
that "among the Civil Population the number
among whites was in excess of any year since 1872;
and as regards colored, it e:.::-v. b the number here-
t[. ... -registered in any one year."
How shall we account for this increase ? Per-
haps some wag may venture a remark' that it was
Leap Year, and hence the unusual and unprece-
dented number, or some still more sapient individual
may discover the cause of this effect" in the simple,
fact that certain number of ladies, young or other-
wise as the case might be, chanced in that par-
ticular year to meet the same number of gen-
tlemen, and, they mutually approving of each
other, and nemine contra-dicenta resolved to ex-
press that mutual appreciation in a public man-
ner and so contributed to swell the Marriage Re-
gister. These suggestions however are far from
explaining the phenomenon, and so after all we must
revert to theremarks of the Registrar General who
observes "It is difficult to account for the increased
number of Marriages this year. In large commu-
nities it has been observed that the state of trade
and national industry are strikingly exhibited in
the marriage rate"; but how far, if at all, these
causes have operated in the present instance, I can-
not venture to express an opinion."
DEATHs.-The total number of deaths which oc-
curred in 3 .-' .1 in 1876 was 347, the highest
death rate since 1869 when it rose to 3O0. T"'.
Registrar General gives the following among other
par.culara: In ; .. the deaths among the white
"o':iatio' wer: .. (76 males and 52 females)
bel"g nearly the same number as in 1875; and
among tho colored population they numbered 219
(96 males and 123 females) thus giving an excess
(27) over the deaths among that race in 1875."
From' the very elaborate Table (No. 8) which is
di' 'into 19 each :-,:. ...inug five
years, and which has further each section subdivi-
ded, so that the deaths occurring in that period of
life which the particular section represents, may be
classed as white or colored, male or female-we
learn that more deaths have occurred among child.


ren, under 5 years of age as regards both the white
and colored population, in 1876, than took place in
1875. But on the whole Bermuda will still hold
her own, and may justly boast of a very long lived(
people, for out of her small population one colored
person in 1876 died above 95 years of age, and 20
others are registered as having died of old age only.
We cannot do better than copy in extenso-Sec.
14 : "Among the whites the deaths of males has ex-
ceeded the deaths of females, a usual circumstance,
but it should be remembered, that in this total
number the deaths which have taken place among
the Military and Navy have been included. With
regard to the colored section of the population the
deaths of females has, as in 1875, exceeded the
deaths of males; and a similar result, though in
smaller proportion, is exhibited among the black
section of the population. As regards Zymotic
diseases the number of deaths caused thereby among
the whites has slightly exceeded the number pro-
duced by those causes among the colored and black
classes. The diseases classed under Section B have
caused more deaths than in 1875, the colored class
having suffered more than either the whites or the
black class, the number among the two last named
being equal; and particularly as regards Tubercu-
lar diseases the colored class suffered much more
than either the whites or the black class. Deaths
ascribed to affections of the Nervous System were
much more numerous than in 1875, while diseases
of the Digestive System have caused fewer deaths
than in that year and under these two head have
been embraced the deaths of those persons who
have succumbed to habits of intemperance. Deaths
resulting from the Diseases of the Circulatory and
Respiratory Systems have been fewer than in the
previous year. A slight increase is shown in the
number of deaths produced by Diseases of the
Urinary System. There was also an increase 'of
Still-births among the colored population. To old
age, so returned, 20 deaths are ascribed; while un-
der the head of Debility may also be included some
whose deaths may be attributed to old age, but not
so given, as well as some d.. ':0:, which have occur-
red in the early stages of existence. One death has
been attributed to Poison, the case being that of a
white infant to whom an overdose of a popular
preparation known as Winslow's Soothing Syrup"
was accidentally administered."
'The health of the Colony we rejoice to learn has
been satisfactory, only 15 deaths have occurred
among the troops, which bears the'proportion of
7-1 per 1,000 strength; the average number of sick
under treatment for the year was 31'19 per 1000.
"Conditions" .'..i-- Mr. Tucker which would justify
the remark made under this head last year, that if
these proportions are sustained for a considerable
time, Bermuda will be entitled to a place among
the healthier Military stations.
There seems to be nothing that calls for special
notice in the Statistics concerning the weather, al-
though the subject is confessedly one of vital im-
portance and closely connected with and influence
the subjects of which this Report speaks. It may,
however, be observed that the rainfall in 1876 was
greater than in the year preceding, the mean tem-
perature moderate, and the winds most gentle.
The Registrar General takes occasion to express
his indebtedness to His Excellency Major General
Lefroy, C.B., and to Deputy Surgeon General,
James Sinclair, M.D., P.M.O., for the Statistics
touching the weather, which form an interesting
and important portion of this Report.
It only remains to say that if anything will dis-
pel the illusions of many abroad, who consider Ber-
muda to be a slightly modified pest hole, and, on
the other hand, teach the world the true nature of
our delightful climate, these Reports will most as-
suredly do so. And we would advise all who are
interested in the subject not to content themselves
with this cursory and imperfect view, but to obtain
a copy of the Report for themselves, which will
amply repay perusal.

THE FREMxAsoNs.-There was a large gathering
and imposing ceremonies at the Dedication of the
new Freemasons Hall, Halifax, N. S., on the 6th
June, and which was as successful as the most en-
thusiastic member of the fraternity could have de-
sired. This new building is said to be an ornament
to the City of Halifax, a credit to the Lodge which
built and owns;it, and decided boon to the craft
in the city giving them a place of meeting of which
they will be proud."
THE BIBLE used on the occasion has an historic
interest. The Grand Master Laurie, said that the
Book belonged to the late Dr. Inglis, the first Bishop
of Nova Scotia. Dr. Inglis was Rector of Trinity
Church, New York, when the revolutionary war
broke out. He continued to read the prayer for
the King according to the form of the English
Church, and thus gave offence to the revolutionists.
IlIs life was threatened, but he continued to read
th prayer. One Sunday when he commenced the
prayer a man stepped out and pointed a cocked
pistol at hb''. Dr. Inglis heeded it not, but con-
tinued to pray for the King of L.~lI.' a, The man
waited till the prayer was over, and then walked
quietly 'away. Dr. Inglis, with many others, whose
descendants were now present, subsequently gave
up everything they had and came to Nova Scotia,
where they could continue to live in loyal support
of the British Crown. He was appointed the first
Bishop of Nova Scotia, and King George, in ac-
knowledgment of his (Dr. Inglis') brave conduct on
the occasion referred to, sent him a bible as a pre-
selit. That bible was now open before them."
TI)O latest news from the famine districts in India
is 'much more cheerful. A general rainfall h-s
greatly improved the prospects

NEW PROVIDENCE.-Governor Robinson, in his
speech at the meeting of the Bahamas Legislature
says, "Arrowroot equal to that manufactured in
Bermuda might with but little exertion be classed
amongst the. native produce of these Islands for
Foreign consumption. I have offered a premium of
23 for the first five acres of Bermuda tubers grown
in the Bahamas and manufactured into arrowroot.
It is not unreasonable Governor R. says to anti-
cipate that sugar will be soon added to the exports
of the r:... -. He has .,1p.--1 to the Governor of

who can be induced to superintend the cultivation
and fermentation of tobacco raised in these Is-
lands on condition that a grant for a like amount of
salary is made by the Legislature."

The Pope on Jane 3 at the celebration of the 50th
anniversary of his elevation to the Episcopate re-
ceived about 5,000 pilgrims, mostly Italians.


THE WAR IN THE EAST.
Latest telegrams by :the "Canima" on: Sunday
last informs us that the feeling of despondency
-which was so marked in the reports from
Turkish sources, has disappeared. A battle is
imminent. The only question is, as to whether the
Russians will attack the Turks in front of the posi-
tion they have chosen, or push their columns com-
ing from Olti towards Erzeroum, and so turn .the
Turkish flank. The Turks have shown their ap-
preciation of the danger by sending Mukhter
Pasha with a flying column against, the Russians
at Olti. A special despatch from Bucharest states
that the peace rumours are utterly groundless. The
utterances of the Marquis of Salisbury and the:
Earl of Derby at the banquet of the Merchant
Tailor's School have given universal satisfaction, i.
shewing that the Government while watchingprver
British interests, will not pour out the blood aud
treasure of the country in the defence of night-
mares and chimeras. The Turks have reoccupied
Olti with a force of six battalions, two bat.fories
and 1000 cavalry. The Russians at Penak number.
4000 with nine guns. Both belligerents agree that
the'cannonading of Kars is ineffectual' andindeci- '
sive. After fifty-five hours fighting near Urstaz,
carried on mostly at close quarters, the Montene-'
grins have withdrawn to Banjani. The losses on
both sides amount to several thousands. The-
Prince of Montenegro has withdrawn his head'-
quarters from Nicsics back to Ostrok. The Monte-
negrins have also been routed in the Kolaschin dis-
trict. The Czar has signified his willingness to re- '
ceive Prince Milan at Ploiesti and the Porte has
been officially informed of the intended interview.'
A Russian battery opened fire at Parapan, a place *
about eight miles from Ruschuk." The causb of-this
was not known, and one of the- Tirlki.h monitors
started to reconnoitre. It is said that the Russian
Army has commenced to cross the Danube at Satarn-
ovo. Both the Russians and their adversaries claim
a victory on the 16th. But the accounts' though-,"
conflicting agree in one particular, viz: the Turks
fell back to Dolibata; though a well executed and
politic retreat does not prove that they were
worsted, yet until further particulars are made
known, it seems best to award the palm of- victory
to the Russians.
In Ministerial circles at Vienna, the question of
an Austrian occupation of Bosnia, Servia and Mon-
tenegro, as far as the Morava River is mooted.
Austria states that the object she desires to attain
by this step is the somewhat vague one of giving a
localization to the war." Austria is doubtless
aware of the great danger to her own interests
which would immediately follow either the acquis-
ition of these States by Russia, or their erection into
an independent Slavic State; and this she knows
must follow the first Russian victory in Bulgaria.
Moreover Austria having under her rule several
millions of a discontented Slav population who long'
for liberty, either by being erected into an indepen-
dent State, or absorbed into a Panslavic Govern-
ment, cannot afford to leave the navigation of the
Danube to those who may be most hostile, and
chooses the present as the time most suitable to pre-
vent what might become under certain circumstances
a national cal amity.
Some say that Germany is only waiting for Aus-
tria to take some such decided step as that men-
tioned above, to side with Russia, and then to seize
the German provinces now in the hands of Austria.
England is also said to be only waiting for Austria
to take the initiative when she will send a corps d'
armef to Egypt. So we 'see that instead of "locali-
zing" the war by her proposed step, Austria will
rather be giving the signal for its wide and general
extension.
The Mediterranean States will not view with
friendly feelings England's monopolization of the
Suez Canal, and will in all probability openly resist
when they see what they think their best interests
openly menaced.
The Austrians have refused to aid the Montene-
grins against the Turks, so they will have to rely
upon their own valour and their mountain fast-
nesses, to hold out until theiRussians advance into,
Bulgaria necessitates the withdrawal of a portion
of the Turkish troops to protect Constantinople.
"The Montenegrins state that they have defeated
the Turks to-day, (the 20th) in a sanguinary battle
near Spuza." The .Russians are concentrating at
Simnitza, and are displaying great activity, but the
real crossing is said to be at Nicopolis. The Turks
on the other side af the river are no less busy, anAd
are concentrating their forces to oppose their lasdti
ing.--Thd groat Krupp g'un which u poD'i u-
ous-an object at the Philadelphia Exhibvibn has
bMen purchased by Russia. The destination of this
formidable weapon is unknown, bu~t there is talk
o placing it uinon some vessel at Nikolaieff ana
using it against the ironclads in the Black Sea.
SThe question, however, of paramount importance ,
to us is what does England intend to do P The
"'Journal des Debats" of the 20th, published a tele- ,
gram from London stating that there appears t be,
some foundation for a rumour which is in circula-
tion that. Her Majesty's government is about to
apply to Parliament for an extraordinary grant of
5,000,000, and that a Cabinet Council was to be
held yesterday to discuss the subject.
We have also a. paragraph which the "Post"
published on the 21st in a prominent position, and
in an official form. The session of.Parliament will
not close without some sufficient steps being taken
to provide for contingencies which are only too dis-
tinct. British interests are deeply involved in the
'questions which are at stake in the East, and for
their due protection the British purse must be open-
ed." The latter paragraph gives corroboration if not
confirmation to the preceding telegram.' The
"Times"tls*. tells us, that orders have been reeived


at Devonport that no vessel wh .i. repairs are like-
ly, to take any length of time is to be docked at either
the Devonport or Keyham yards, which are to be
kept as clear as possible for any emergency that
may arise."-These signs and reports though in a
great measure unregarded at home, have at last be-
gan to be felt, and we learn from latest papers that
the London Stock Exchange which for some time
had been stagnant, has been much disquieted with- i
in' the last two days. We wait anxiously for .the
next news from Europe and the seat of war. ,

THE FIGHT AT WHITE BIRD WITH IN.
DIANS.
MOUNT IDAHO, June 19-9 a.m.-Commanding
officer at Fort Lapwal, Col. Perry, with his com-
mand and some volunteers, engaged the Indians at
White Bird about daylight. They were fighting
about three hours and were repulsed with heavy
loss of men and horses. Some of the men who
have returned estimate the loss In killed and wound.
ed at sixty men.
Since writing the above Col. Perry has come in
safe but we hear Capt. Weller and Capt. Trimble
are both missing and are supposed to have been
killed. The people here have a good fort and have
no fear of the town.
Later, June 18-Williams, who brought these
letters to Lewiston, says he was a scout in the
aght. The engagement took place at the foot of
of White Bird canon, instead of at the head. Upon
the firt fire the Indian soldiers broke ranks and re-
treated. The officers could not rally them and
make them face the fire.
The Indians pursued them about sixteen miles,
firing upon them constantly. He says that the
Indians have better guns than the troops and their
aim was deadly. From the first attack there were
about 125 Indians in pursuit of the troops, all well
mounted. After the fight the Indians held a grand
war dance on the prairie.
Gen. Howard's despatch to Col. Wood, dated
June 18, 11 A. M., gives the number of Col. Perry's
command who have been killed. Killed and wound-
ed number 27, including Capt. Theller.
MERIDIAN, Miss., June 15.-The Kemper Affray.
-Evidence taken by United States officers in the
case of McClellan, an alleged British subject, killed
in the Kemper riot, goes to show that McClellan
served as a volunteer a short term in the Confeder-
ate army in 1861, and afterward sought to avoid
conscription by claiming to be a British subject, but
the British Consul at Mobile declined to protect
him on the ground that he had forfeited such claim
by his acts. He performed many acts of Citizan-
ship, but never voted. He was armed, threatening
and obtrusive on Chisholm's behalf the day of his
death. His character for honesty and courage was
good.
SA. FRANCISCO, June 20.-A press despatch from
Victoria, British Columbia, says: "News from the
Kocky Mountain Camp of the Canadian Pacific
Railway states that the men who were in charge
there have ,been murdered by Blackfeet Indians.
One man escaped, and brought the Intelligence to
Fraser River. There was a large amount of rail-
way supplies at the camp.
HALI.AX, June 16.-A Miniter on Trial for He-
reey.-The McDonnell case was discussed in the
Presbyterian Assembly here yesterday and to-day.
Dr. Top of Toronto moved a resolution that Me.
Ponnell be required to answer categorically ques-
tions respecting his position on the doctrine of eter-
nal punishment, which was carried by 174 to 82.
McDonnell declined to make any further state-
ment than that submitted to the Assembly that he
held no opinion at variance with the Confession of
Faith, and requested the Assembly to instruct the
Presbytery of Toronto to frame a libel against him.

"Where all the pianos go to seems somewhat of a
mystery. for a really good instrument will last a lifetime ;
and yet every year thousands are made by each of the great
London Manufacturers, while the numbers made by the
two hundred or more smaller firms must represent an enor-
motis number in the course of each year. The improvements
aiade in English pianos have caused this trade rapidly to
increase, until one pianoforte manufactory after another
has been built to supply the growing demand. One of the
largest of these, lately erected by Messrs. JOHN BRINSMEAD
& SoNs, of Wigmore-street, covers nearly an acre of
.round in the Gratton-road, Kentish-town, and is intended
