ST. GEOwR, BErMrDA, 28th June, 1877.
DEAR MI. EmDITO,-Permit me, through your
columns, to call the attention of our Police to the
fact that at present that part of Water Street in
the immediate neighborhood of Thos. Toddings'
Grocery Store is now frequently occupied from
about 3 to 10 p.m., by several indecent females who
openly and without any hesitation use the most in-
decent and vulgar language to the disgust of pass-
ers by. It is certainly not pleasant for ladies to
hear such language, and several have determined
not to purchase any articles in this street, while
this state of things is allowed to exist. Surely it
is the duty of the Police to put a stop to this nuis-
ance. Yours respectfully, MODESTY.
The West Indies, Demerara, &c.
The R. M. Steamer Alpha, Captain Warden, ar-
rived early on Tuesday morning last from St.
Thomas. By her we have our customary exchange
files from the West Indies, &c.
DEMERARA.-They were in the midst of the rainy
season and the occasional down pour" put quite
a stop to business. A Tramway Company was
about to be incorporated.-8667 migrants had
arrived from Calcutta, within the previous 12
months. Her Majesty's birthday was celebrated
on the 29th. In the forenoon His Excellency the
Administrator of the Government held a levee
which was numerously attended, and in the even-
ing there was a Ball given by the Administrator
and Mrs. Young, which was crowded.-There was
on exhibition a novelty in sugar packages-a bar-
rel made of paper, the production of the New York
Paper Barrel Company-which is highly approved
of by the Planters who have inspected it. It is
impervious to damp and cannot leak, and as the
body of the barrel consists of one unbroken piece
of web, there is not the loss consequent on cracks,
knot holes, and gaping seams, and is in cost from
16 to 20 per cent less than the other. The
Barque Polly from Liverpool was detained at the
Quarantine Station in consequence of having but
12 men on board when there were 14 named in the
crew list. As there was no entry in the official
log-book to explain the discrepancy, the vessel
was consequently placed under restraint.-The ex-
ports of sugar this year to June 2, was less by
868 hhds. to same date last year.--The Plantation
Wales has been purchased by Mr. J. B. Mayers for
22,000. By this transaction the long standing
connection of the Gladstone family with Demerara,
which goes back to the first decade of the present
century, is severed.
At a meeting of the Planters and others at Havana
recently it was determined that a society be formed
for the purpose of importing Chinese laborers into
that Island. The capital required $2,000,000, half
of which was subscribed immediately.
ST. VINCENT.-The crops have not yielded so
much as last year.

GOD SAVE T g E QUEEN !
THE HONORABLE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY
AND THE HONBLE. HENRY FOWLER,
On the first day of the present Session, it was or-
dered by the House of Assembly that the Receiver
General be requested to lay before the House the
Public Books of Account. This was in accordance
with long standing usage. To this Mr. Fowler
replied in substance that the Public Books and Ac-
counts were open to the inspection and examination
of the Assembly, or a Committee of them, but that
it appeared to him that he was not in a position to
lay the Books of Accounts before the Assembly un-
less authorized to do so by the Governor. The
House then brought the matter to the notice of His
Honor the Acting Governor, who, in a communica-
tion in reply, stated that he objected "most strongly
to the supposition that the House of Assembly is, or
can be authorized, to convey any order directly to,
or enter into correspondence with an officer of the
Executive. Such a principle would involve the
destruction of all departmental discipline, and
might place the Executive in a most undesirable
position as regards the House." The action of the
House on His Honor's communication is deferred
till to-morrow, Wednesday, but the resolutions on
which the proceedings will be based will be found
in the minutes of the House which appear in ano-
ther column of this issue.
On Friday immediately after the presentation of
the Resolves alluded to, a motion was made to the
effect, that the Receiver General be ordered to lay
the Public Books of Accounts before the House by
one o'clock yesterday. This motion was carried 26
Yesterday Mr. Fowler having failed to lay the
Public Books of Accounts before the House of As-
sembly, it was moved that the Receiver General be
now ordered to attend at the Bar of the House
forthwith to explain the causes of his neglect.
It was moved that the House go into Committee to
consider the matter. After some deliberation the
Committee rose with permission to sit again.
We simply lay the facts before the public and
may comment on the proceedings on some future
GRANT OF 1,000 TO THE QUEBEC AND
GULF PORTS STEAM COMPANY.
It will be noticed by the proceedings of the Hon-
orable House of Assembly on Friday last that the
proposed Resolve granting 1,000 to he Quebec and
Gulf Ports Steamship Company, for services rendered
since the termination of their contract was fully
sustained by a vote of 22 to 13. We are much
pleased at the result and particularly so by such
a rare circumstance of every member of the house
being present-not a seat being vacant.
As will be seen from our advertising columns it was
decided at a meeting held at the Town Hall, on Friday
last, 29th June, that steps should be at once taken for
getting up a race meeting in connection with the Ber-

Wednesday, the, 27th June, will long be remem-
bered by many as a charming boat racing day; the
previous day looked threatening and stormy, and
much anxiety was depicted in the countenances of
those who were interested either in some of the va.
rious racing craft or in the hopes of a pleasant
day's outing; the morning however promised well,
and by 9 o'clock all were astir. The Judges were
early on their way to place the stake-boats; and
soon after 11 o'clock these were observable, the
windward one between Tucker's Island and Fowle's
Point on the Somerset shore, the other near the
Hog-fish beacon, the wind being from the S. W.
steady but rather strong for some of the highly
Alas, delays always occur in Bermula racing;
the first event on the card was for H. R. H. the
Duke of Edinburgh's Challenge Cup, with a small
cup presented to the winner by the R. B. Y. Club.
For this only three yachts were entered, but one of
these thinking proper to change her suit at the last
moment, kept her competito's lying at the Lee
stake boat until 12-26, when the little Psyche, in a
staggering breeze and under a heavy press of can-
vass, gallantly led the way up for the Undine and
Nautilus, both' of which were very close upon her
at the first turn and took her down in the run to
leeward, where the Nautilus was about a minute be-
fore the Undine, and all supposed had the race in
hand, but the wind having somewhat increased it
was noticed that the Undine, under snug canvass,
now outwinded the Nautilus, (which seemed to have
too much jib for the day) and sailing well up over-
hauled the latter and managed to round the Wind-
ward goal 29 seconds in advance, thus winning a
very pretty race and the Cup honors.
The late start in the Cup race necessitated a late
one for the Hamilton Stakes," which were open to
all the world and not restricted to R. B. Y. G0.
Rules, and about 3-20 p.m., with a good scupper
breeze, which had kept up well all day, the Lincoln

not in condition for another heat and declined the
For the money very great interest was evinced
on every side, a sail Bermuda, from H. M. Dock-
yard to Great Head," was powerfully represented.
This being an old fashioned race, without restric-
tions as to shifting ballast and the number of the
crew, most of the crafts showed a good spread of
canvass, but- probably those which attracted most
attention from lookers on were the Julia, Nautilus
and Unknown; the first with an awful crowd of white
duck stood up manfully to her work and travelled in
true racing speed; the second with a little piling up
to windward, and an extra hand was much better
than in the first race, while the Unknown was es-
pecially conspicuous for her neat get up, and the
quiet and masterly manner in which she was hand-
led. The Lincoln and Princess Beatrice also well
became their new suits, and the Lady Stewart would
have been a dangerous antagonist if she had done
half as well as she looked.
In the first turn up the Julia got very near the
Lincoln and the Nautilus also gained perceptibly on
her, while the Unknown was busily working up her
time; there was not however much mancevring as
all seemed bent in getting over the course in
as little time as possible without paying any atten-
tion to their companions; but when they had turn-
ed for the run down perhaps the prettiest sight of
the day was presented by the fleeting crowd with
wings on either side scudding before the brisk gale;
let it be hoped that none missed this portion of the
race, which was safely accomplished by all, though
not without peril to some of the smaller ones.-
The Julia was the first to flatten her sheets for
the last trip to windward, and it was now evident
that without some unexpected event occurred she
could scarcely be overtaken; the Lincoln and Nau.
tilus also soon turned on their homeward journey,
and well they travelled too, although the former
would have preferred a smoother course on which
to exhibit her racing qualities; these were pur-
sued at intervals, as shown in the time table, by the
Undine, Honey Bee, Unknown and Princess Beatrice ;
the Nautilus soon took down the Lincoln but not
being able to overtake the Julia, had to content
herself with second money, while the great Unknown
swallowing up his American Cousin just at the fin-
ish, saved his stakes and squared away for his na-
tive shores highly gratified, like everybody else,
with the enjoyment of a glorious day and the part
he had taken in it.

BERMUDA APPLEs.-Two beautiful specimens of
,Apples, of the Red Astrachan kind, were brought
to us yesterday by Xfr. William J. Kemp, of War-

They are solid and well flavoured, and are the pro-

SOME SLIGHT TaouBLL.-The New York Herald,
of the 22nd June, says 1" An American vessel, called
the Georgia, belonging to the Pacific Mail Steam-
ship Company, struck on a reef in Magellan Straits
and was taken off by a wrecker named Jones, who
is a citizen of Chili. This Jones took advantage
of the helplessness of the captain to force an ex-
tortionate bargain, which the steamship company
repudiated. The American captain afterward put
to sea with the Chilian custom house officers on
board and sailed for Callao, a port of Peru. The
Chilians had sufficient influence with the Pe-
ruvian authorities to get the vessel seized, and
when she sailed from Callao she was pursued by
a Peruvian gunboat, captured and brought under
the guns of a Peruvian fort. At this stage of the
business the case was brought, a few days since, to
the attention of Secretary Evarts, who forthwith
telegraphed an order to our Minister to demand
the immediate release of the Georgia, with simul-
taneors instructions to our naval commander to
co-operate with the Minister. Mr. Evarts placed
his action on the legal principle that the Georgia
had-committed no offence against the laws of Peru,
and that he would not tolerate an attempt by the
government if that country to execute the laws of
Chili against one of our vessels."
(From the Standard.)
Having exhausted all its funds, the Russian Govern.
ment now sees with apprehension the moment ap-
proaching when the interest on its foreign debt will
fall clue. Thejbargain it is said to have made to meet
its engagements shows the straits to which it is re-
duced. The amount it needs for the present is no more
than three millions'sterling-a sum that a third-rate
borough would have no difficulty in raising. Yet the
great Russian Government could obtain credit for thi-
petty sum in no single capital of Europe. A syndis
catc was formed, consisting of Paris, Berlin and Am-
sterdam bankers, and these consented to make the
advance. Thus, apparently, a million sterling is the
utmost which the financial agents of any single country
will risk on the strength of Russian credit at the pre-
sent month. The exact terms of the agreement are
not known. The generally received account is, how.
ever, that the syndicate is to receive in interest and
commission as much as eight and a halt per cent.,
and in addition unissued bonds of an old loan bearing
five per cent interest are to be lo-lged with it at the rate
of fifty per cent. of the nominal value. Thus the syn-
dicate gets eight and a half per cent., and covers its
risk by requiring deposit of old bonds of twice the no-
minal value of the advance it makes. It would be
difficult to find stronger proof of the discredit of a
DETAILS OF THE BATTLE AT DFLIBABA.
We have now detailed information respecting
the first conflict in the open field between the Turks
and Russians in Armenia, a brief account of which
was telegraphed you yesterday. It will be remtnem-
bered that Mukhtar Pacha reinforced the troops at
Delibaba some days ago and ordered Commander
Mehemet to advance through the passes from the
Aras Valley and Pasin plain and meet the Rus.
sians. Mehemet, therefore, descended the slope and
took up a position at Zeidikan or Saidachan, which
is ten or twelve miles southwest of Toprak-Kaleh
and just in front of the passes above mentioned.
THE PASSES ABANDONED.
His artillery strength is not stated, but it was not
strong. His infantry was not above eight thousand
and he had little or no cavalry, and that was of a
bad quality. The Russian left, under Lieutenant
General Tergukassoff, had, on the other hand,
about ten thousand infantry and plenty of cannon,
besides an effective cavalry force.
THE TURKS FORCE THE FIGHT.
The Turks brought on the fight by advances on
the 15th inst. The whole day was spent in an ar-
tillery duel, but on the 16th the Russians began
the execution of what was evidently a settled plan.
Six bodies of Russian infantry advanced at six
o'clock under a terrible cover of artillery fire.
LOSS OF THEIR COMMANDER.
At this crisis Mehemet fell dead. To increase
the difficulties ammunition ran short.
A despatch from Paris states that since the open-
ing of the debate the platform of the Cabinet seems
more and more narrowed. The Royalists will re-
main with the Cabinet, but the Bonapartists imme-
diately after the dissolution, it is said, will advo-
cate the rule of President MacMahon till 1880, but
will demand an appeal the people after the expi-
ration of his term of office.

The Acting Governor herewith transmits to the

Despatch dated March 3, 1877, conveying Her
Majesty's disallowance of the Act of the Bermuda
Legislature, No. 17 of 1876, entitled "An Act to
continue the Act providing Salaries for the Chief
Justice and Attorney General."
Government House, June 29, 1877.
Jas. Tucker, C. S.
DowNING STREET, 3rd March, 1877.
SIR,-1 have laid before the Queen the Act of
the Bermuda Legislature enclosed in your Despatch,
No. 85, of the 31st September last, entitled An Actf
to continue the Act. providing Salaries for the
Chief Justice and Attorney General."
I concur in your opinion and that of the Attor-
ney General respecting the future reduction of Sa-
laries contemplated by this Act. It would be diffi-
cult if not impossible, to secure the services of per-
sons properly qualified for these important posts at
the low remuneration of 600 and 3(0 respect-
ively; and on these grounds alone the Act appears
to me to be objectionable. But it is pointed out by
the Attorney General that by the 2nd Section the
Salary of the future holder of his Office is limited
to 300 including any allowance from Quit Rents,
and that as the Quit Rent Fund has hitherto been
entirely at the disposal of the Crown, a new feature
is thus introduced into the legislation of the Colo-
ny. This objection appears to me insuperable, as
it would be impossible for me to admit the right of
the Bermuda Legislature to question the disposal
of this fund; and under all the circumstances I
have felt it my duty to advise Her Majesty to ex-
ercise Her prerogative of disallowance in respect of
this Act, and the necessary Order in Council shall
be forwarded to you in due course.
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your most obedient humble servant,
Governor Lefroy, C.B.,

The House, on motion of Mr. Dill, resolved itself
into a Committee of the whole to take into conside-
ration the Message of His Honor the Acting Gover-
nor, No. 20, relating to the Receiver General's
Letter on the subject of Public Books of Accounts.
Mr. J. W. Pearman in the Chair.
Mr. Dill moved a Resolution as follows :
Resolved, that the non-compliance of the Receiver Gen-
eral to lay before this House the Public Book of Ac-
counts, in accordance with its request sanctioned by
precedent and practice exercised year by year for a
long period of time, is an invasion of an inherent privi-
lege of this House fully supported by Imperial Par-
liamentary usage, that all accounts and papers relat-
ing to finance, revenue and expenditure may be ob-
tained by a direct order from either House of Parlia-
ment and which has never heretofore been questioned,
far less by the Executive Government.
Mr. S.C. Outerbridge moved that the Committee
rise and ask for leave to sit again--which was a-
The House resumed.
The Chairman obtained leave to sit again.
The Attorney General moved "that it is expedi-
ent that the Resolutions which have been read
be printed in the Minutes and that the decision of
the House on them be postponed until the second
day of meeting next week in order that members
may have an opportunity of considering them be-
fore voting on them"-which was agreed to.
1. Resolved, that the non-compliance of the Receiver
General to lay before this House the Public Books of
Accounts, in accordance with its request sanctioned
by precedent and practice exercised year by year for
a very long period of time, is an invasion of an in-
herent privilege of this House fully supported by Im-
perial Parliamentary usage, that all accounts and pa-
pers relating to finance, revenue and expenditure
may be obtained by a direct order from either House
of Parliament and which has never heretofore been
questioned, far less opposed by the Executive Gov-
2. Resolved, that the Colonial Law on the subject, in
the opinion of this House, was undoubtedly in spirit
intended to secure to each Branch of the Legislature
this right and privilege so continuously exercised by
the Popular Branch thereof.
3. Resolved, that any attempt to subvert this reason-
able Construction of the Law cannot be viewed by
this House in any other light than a breach of the
Constitutional privilege of the Representatives of
the People of these Islands to hold a wholesome
check at all times on the monetary state of the Trea-
sury, and ought not to be sanctioned by the Executive
of these Islands.
4. Resolved, that the manner in which this attempt
has been initiated and sanctioned must necessarily
create the grave distrust of this Branch of the Legis-
lature' and calls for the most anxious and jealous
watchfulness over the managment of the Revenue
5. That a Committee be appointed to inquire into, and
report upon the most expedient mode of further pro-
cedure in this matter.
Mr. S. C. Outerbridge moved that the Receiver
General be ordered to iay the Public Books of Ac-
counts before the House on Monday next at 1
o'clock, P. M.-whihh was affirmed.

Monday, 2nd July.-Mr. Thomas F. J. Tucker,
presented a Petition from Henry J. Watlington,
Master of the Barque Sir George F. Seymour,"
setting forth that the Seamen of his Ship had suf-
fered a loss in their Clothing, valued at 21 16/8,
destroyed by ordei of the Health Officer as a pres-
ervative of the Public Health from the spreading of
Small Pox, a case of which had existed on board the
said Barque, and praying relief in the Premises.
Mr. S. C. Outerbridge moved the following:

ordered to lay the Public Books of Account before
the House of Assembly at 1 o'clock P. M. this day,
and having failed to do so I move, that the Receiver
General be now ordered to attend at the Bar of the

A Message from His Honor the Acting Gov-.
WILLIAM LAWTIE MORRISON,
Colonel Royal Engineers,
Acting Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Acting Governor transmits to the House of
Assembly a Communication, dated 2nd March,
1877, from the Agent, at New York, of the Quebec
and Gulf Ports Steam Ship Comdany, in which a
request is made for a refund to the Company of the
Sea Postage, from 1st October, 1876, of 2 Cents per
J oz. on letters, and of 1 Cent per 4 ozs. on News-
By the New York Mail Act of 1875, the Govern-
ment was authorized to conclude a Postal Conven-
tion with the Government of the United States of
America for the transmission of Mails direct from
these Islands to the United States ; and, under the
Convention of 1st October, 1876, the U. S. Govern-
ment ceased to pay the Company any Sea Postage
upon letters and newspapers from Bermuda to New
York, and the whole of such postage was received ''
by the Treasury of the Colony. '
The sea postage for letters between the 1st Octo-
ber, 1876, and 28th June, 1877, amounted to 201
16/1, but the amount of that for newspapers the
Post Master General is unable to furnish.
Theie should then be refunded to the Steam Ship
Company as follows :
Sea postage on letters between those
dates at 2 cents per J oz. 56 13 5
Do. on Newspapers at 1 cent per 4 ozs. 1 15 9
58 9 2
By an order, however, of the Governor and
Council, issued in accordance with the 4th Clause
of the New York Mail Act of 1875, a sum of twenty
shillings was paid out of the Post Office Revenue
tor each Mail conveyed by the Company's vessels
between the dates before mentioned, and such pay-
ment amounting to 17 0/0, must therefore be de-
ducted from the sum due to the Company, leaving
a balance in its favor of 41 9/2. There being no
authority under the Post Office Act of 1864, or the
New York M*il Ant. af 187i tin reianhnma the
Steam Ship Company, the Acting Governor recorm-
mends that the House should make provision for
the payment of this equitable claim.

The Resolution relating to the Public Books of
Governor's message relating to mails to the Uni-
ted States by the Contract Steamer.
Dr. Richardson, a celebrated hygieist, who is
about to build a City on a plan to secure the high-
est attainable amount of hygienic perfection; and
the inhabitants of which, it is confidently promised,
will live much longer than the rest of the world,
has recently been analysing the Registrar General's
Reports to determine the relative length of life en-
joyed by the various trades and professions in Eng-
The results are sufficiently curious and interesting
to furnish food for reflection. The years 1860 to
1862 are those selected, and there seems to be no
reason to doubt that those three years afford aver-
Taking the standard of deaths at 100 for the pur-
poses of comparison the Doctor finds that the com-
parative range of deaths in the various trades and
professions starts at 63 and rises to 143, that is to say,
given an equal number of members of the respec-
tire trades and professions, of one profession or trade
63 persons will die to 143 persons of another. These
are the minimum and maximum numbers of deaths
but there are the nicest gradations between the two
figures, the whole number of occupations which
furnish returns for the enquiry being upwards of 70.
Few people we think were prepared to hear that
tried by this standard the barristers are the longest
living of all trades and professions. Their relative
number of deaths in the three years being 63 only,
the standard being 100. Next to them come the
Clergy of the Established Church, whose deaths were
71, and next to them, but at a marked interval,
other Protestant Ministers who died at the rate of

Here we have reached the standard and so far it
appears that of equal numbers of barristr's and en-
gine makers in any given period would die, or
rather during the 3 years in question there did die,
63 of the former and 100 of the latter.
The figures after passing 100 are not less interest-
ing. Iron, copper, tin and lead manufacturers gave
101 deaths. Roman Catholic Priests gave 103 and
then the figures run as follows :-
Millers ..................... .......... 103

Coachmen (not domestic) and Cabmen.....143
Of the whole number the barristers are the long-
est and the public coachmen and cabmen the short-
est livers. The former live twice as long as the
Hairdressers, and the Clergy of the Established
Church twice as long as the Cabmen.
But what is more remarkable is that Physicians
are very low in the scale, the relative number of
deaths among them being to those among the Law-
yers were as 106 to 63. Another significant figure is
the rate of mortality among the unmarried Roman
Catholic Priests to that of the Clergy of the Estab-
lished Church most of whom probably are married.
71 of the latter die to 103 of the former. From this
the conclusion may probably be drawn that the
cares and anxieties, and even the embarrassments,
of a married clergy, are not so fatal as the want of
domestic comfort and care incident to the unmar-
ried clergy. It may not be so easy to account for
the excess of mortality in the Protestant Noncon-
formist Clergy over those of the Church of England,
but the excess is very small.
Tna FIRE AT ST. JOHn, N.B.-We stated in our
last issue that the destructive fire which commen-
ced in the City of St. John, on the afternoon of the
20th ultimo, was still burning at 1-80 a.m,., of the.
21st, the latest date thence. By the New York pa-.
pers now before us we learn that the raging element

Two thirds of the City has been destroyed, which
includes the business portion; and the banks,
churches, hotels, theatres, stores and residen-
ces are involved in one common destruction.
Byjthe closestestimate thatcould be made theamoun t
ot property destroyed, is put at between $7,500,000
and $8,000,000, of this amount the insurance will
cover about 55 per cent, leaving a dead loss of lit-
tle less than half the total value of the property.
We are glad to notice that at Bangor, Me., Hali-
fax, N.S., Montreal, and other places, measures

PROGRESS OF THE WAR.
Fuller particulars are given in our despatches to-
day of the important battle in Armenia, the essen-
tial facts of which were reported in the Herald of
yesterday. The fight at Zerdikhan was the first
general action of the war, and a force of eight
thousand Turkish infantry, with artillery, was there
so'badly beaten that it seems to have gone to pieces.
As the fall of Erzeroum was before imminent this
decisive event will render it inevitable. From all
the details received of the position of Montenegro
that little State appears to be making a gallant fight
against the superior numbers of the Turks. The
latest accounts confirm the report of a complete
Montenegrin victory at Martinitza, where the Turk-
ish force was annihilated. It is said that the Czar
regards the result of the Montenegrin struggle with
great concern, and this fact exhibits him in full
sympathy with the whole Christian world. Con-
stantinople despatches say that the Turks have
seventy thousand men in Montenegro. They may
have half that number; but if these men were in
Armenia how much more effectively they might
fight for the Moslem cause! Armenia is vital to
the Empire; Montenegro is not. Clearly the
power that first makes mad the men who are to be
ruined may be credited with the inspiration of the
Turkish policy that, come what may, Montene-
gro must be conquered. One of the presumed pur-
poses of so large a force in the northwestern prov-
inces is, moreover, that they should be handy to
prevent Russian operations in the western passes,
and they seem likely to fail even in that, since, if
there shall prove to be any basis of truth in the re-
ports in regard to the passage through Servia of the
Russians, they can be so suddenly in front of So-
phia that the Moslems in Montenegro will be help-
less against them. Heavy firing is in progress all
along the Danube. The Turks are mightily afraid
of the Russian torpedoes. Austria is fast concen-
trating her troops on the frontier in anticipation of
a Russian move into Servia. The report of slight
Turkish successes at Bajazid and Van are offset by
another that the Kurds are deserting by thousands
to the Russians. The reported discovery of an at-
tempt to destroy the Suez Canal is a queer story.
It will naturally not be immediately believed. In
fact it has the appearance of an invention intended
as a preliminary excuse to precautionary" move-
ments on the part of England.-N. Y. Herald, June
PLOTS AGAINST THE SUEZ CANAL.--The Cairo cor-
respondent of the Herald telegraphs that the gov-
ernment of the Khedive has discovered the exis-
tence of a plot that may exert a considerable in-
fluence on the future of the war. Several evil
disposed persons have entered into a conspiracy
with the object of destroying the passage of the Suez
Canal by blowing in the banks with nitro-glycerine
at a point between Ismalia and Port Said.
The discovery of this conspiracy has created con-
siderable excitement and the Egyptian government
is seriously alarmed. The most stringent measures
of precaution have been adopted to foil the conspir-
ators. The Khedive has appointed a commission
for the defence of the Canal, with General Stone
Pacha as President. Admiral McKellop Pacha,
Admiral Frederigo Pacha and Captain Morice are
the other members of the Commission. Troops
will patrol the banks, and every possible effort
will be made to prevent the carrying out of the de-
The English government has taken alarm and
requested the Khedive to watch the canal with re-
newed vigilance. It was in compliance with this
request that the commission was appointed. The
publication of this fact will probably arouse public
opinion in PEngland to such an extent that the gov-
ernment will be called upon to despatch troops for
the protection of the canal, and thus the British
government will be supplied with the pretext they
have been waiting for. It remains to be seen in
what light Russia and the Mediterranean States
would regard an English occupation of Egypt.

LONDON, June 22.-Great activity is displayed by
both armies all along the line of the Danube. Kala-
fat was bombarded yesterday afternoon, and desperate
artillery engagements have taken -place at several
points. The firing was especially heavy at Rutscbuk
yesterday. The crossing is expected at any moment
and the Turkish infantry are completely equipped and
confidently awaiting the hour of action.
Alarms at Rutschuk.-The Herald correspondent at
Rutschuk reports that night alarms are frequent at
that point. The authorities are in dread of torpedo
attacks on the gunboats lying there, and keep the
:garrison continually pn the qui vive.
kii'n'ishing oan the River.--Sixty Turks landed
near Kalarash on Wednesday night. They were at.
tacked: by Russians and were nearly all killed or
wounded after an obstinate resistance.
Everything ready for the crossing.-Barges used for
transporting corn on the Danube have been transform-
ed into floating blockhouses for conveying infantry
across the river, and made proof against bullets and
fragments of shells. The Roumauian army has fully
completed its arrangements and is ready for the mot
d'ordre. The flat lands along the Danube which were
covered with water are now free, but it will require a
week or ten days for the muddy surface to become dry
enough for road making. The weather is hot and dry.
The Kurds in Revolt.-Xccording to the Herald
special from Vienna the Porte is organizing 12,000
flying cavalry against the Kurds, who are joining the
Russians by thousands. The Mlaharmmedanism of the
Kurds is not of a radical kind, and they have evident-
ly concluded to waive any slight religious objections
to the Russians they may have for the sake of making
such terms with the conquerors as may be o* the great-
est adrvatage to them..
Reported Turkish successes.-The special correspon-
dent of the Herald at Pera telegraphs that it is repor-
ted there that the Turks have driven the Russians out
of Van and B-jazid. This reads like the news from
Ardahan a few days ago.
Servia massing Troops.-The Servian government
is sending to the north-eastern frontier all the Servian
civil and military officers conversant with the Russian
tongue. The opinion is gaining ground that theRus-
sians are no longer averse to crossing the Danube be-
tween Turn-Severin and Gladova. It is thought pos-
sible that the Austrian Court might be induced to leave
Eastern Servia to the Russian troops, on condition that
the other provinces were left to Emperor Francis
A chat with the Czar.-Prince Milan was very kind-
ly received by the Czar, who listened with areat at-
tention to his account of the difficulties in which Ser-
via is placed. The Czar assured Prince Milan that
Servia might always reckon on his sympathies. No
opportunity seems to have been given Prince Milan to
express himself directly, much less to receive any in-
instructions; but according to information reaching
Vienna the opinion of the Czar and his government
still is that Servia should not stir. As for any positive
prohibition there can he no question of that, for by so
doing Russia would take upon herself a responsibility
she has been always careful to avoid.
More explanations to the Porte.-Nf. Cristics, the
Servian representative at Constantinople, has renewed
his declarations of Servia's neutrality. HIe denies that
the Servian government will allow the Russians to
march through Servia.
Austria trusts her not.-Notwithstanding Servian
promises Austrian militia to the number of fifteen bat.
talions have been called and take-n up a position near
Negotin. The Servian forces are now calculated to be
really equal in number to the Turkish forces at
Widdin. Austrian intervention in Servia waspublicly
discussed in Vienna last night as expected very short-
Has not moved yet.-The statement that occupation
of Turkish territory by Austrian troops is imminent is
denied in official circles in Vienna. The mobilization
of army corps is also denied. A Vienna correspondent
denies the report of the mobilization of the Servian
Austria's hour for action nigh.-A Vienna despatch
confirms the report that Russia has invited Austria to
make military preparations for the purpose of pre-
venting the Montenegrins from being utterly crushed.
The Austrian Foreign Office is not inclined to move in
the matter. The correspondent adds :-" Certain
signs in Ministerial quarters, however, point to the
probability that the moment is considered close at
hand when further inaction on the part of Austria
might unfavorably prejudice her future position in
connection with the solution of the Oriental question."
Another version.-The Post's despatch from Vienna
says there has been considerable word splitting on the
matter of Austrian military preparations. On to-day's
Bourse an official representative of the government
denied the statement which was first published by the
Ministerial remdenblatt that two army corps were about
to be mobolized., The official Abendpost, however,
did not contain any contradiction. It is known that
large detachmer:'s have been watching the frontier
since last year. Some increase in their number would
suffice, especially it, as is semi-cAfcially asserted to-
night, no action bat merely demonstrai;G,: was in-
Further explanations.-The Times Vienna corres-
pondent explains the origin of the rumours relative to
the mobilization of the Austrian troops, which almost
caused a panic in Vienna yesterday. Every year lihe
says since the commencement of the troubles on the
Dalmatian and Croabian frontier, which extends 500
English miles, it has been occupied by four divisions
who, on a peace footing, only numbers 25.000 men.
All that has been done was to consult with Radich and
Molinari about eventually placing these four divisions
or two army corps on a war footing.
LONDON, June 22.-The Herald correspondent
at Berlin telegraphs that the relations between Ger-
many and France are increasing in coolness, so
much that the reserve is perceptible in all the com-
munications from the former Power. It is stated
that Prince Hohenlohe, German Ambassador at
Paris, has recently been instructed, restricting his
social intimacy with President MacMabon's entour-
age, ordering him to hold aloof from the clerical cli-
ques and their dames d'Etat. The German govern-
ments, despite the pacific assurances of the Due De-
cazes, continues to mistrust the clerical-monarchi-
cal tendency of DeBroglie's Cabinet.
A WARNING IN TIME.
Although no signs of a serious storm are yet ap-
parent, it is clear the French Ministers ought to
pay close attention to Germany's diffident reserve
and accept it as a warning.
In the French Senate at Versailles yesterday, M.
Jules Simon,recently Presidentof the Council, spoke
in justification of the late Ministry. He said com-
plaints respecting his conduct of public business
were mere pretexts. The real cause of the fall of
his Ministry was that it had been in harmony with
the republican majority. M. Simon declared he was
pained to see the rules of parliamentary government
trampled under foot with terrible unceremonious-
ness. The present proposal for the dissolution of
the Chamber was intended to complete the ruin of
He appealed to the Duke de Broglie to repudiate
his intention of setting up official candidacies and
to disavow the disgraceful language of papers which
proposed to sweep away the Republic. He conclu-
ded that the Ministers would not and could not be
Bonapartists, but were neither legitimistsncr or-
leanists. They were an ambiguous government,
and the Republic would finally triumph. (There
was applause which lasted several minutes).
The Duke de Broglie demonstrated that the pro-
posal for dissolution was not contrary to the con-
stitution. lie said:-" President MacMabon is in
harmony with the tendencies of the majority of the
Senate. Do not abandon him." In reference to
the charge that the Ministers are not republicans,
the Duke said they kept within the spirit of the
constitution. In reference to other accusations he
said the Ministers were sincerely attached to the
Church, but they disowned no principle of public
law. None of them desired to compromise the
country in religious intrigues or war on religious
questions. He concluded :-,' The country will not
hesitate between President MacMahon and the Dic-
tator of Bordeaux, the chief of the radical army."
The debate was adjourned until to-morrow.
The discussion upon the report of the bureaus in
favor of the dissolution of the Chamber of Deputies
was begun in the Senate yesterday. Victor Hugo,
in a long speech, pointed out. the importance of the
Senate in a conflict between the powers of the
In the Chamber of Deputies Baron de Saint-Paul,
Bonapartist, asked M. Leon Renaulh whether, ina
consideration of the payment of a million francs. he
had not undertaken to facilitate the entrance of the
Count de Chambord as King into Paris in 1875.
M. Renault denied the accusation. There was
great excitement in the Chamber over this incident.
It is believed M. Renault has sent M. de Saint-
Paul a challenge.
The Chamber subsequently refined to vote direct
taxes, but unanimously voted suppl',nmentary grants
to the Ministry of War, the repoie' of the Budget
Committee observing that although the Chambers
refused to pass any vote which would imply con-
fidence in the government, it was disposed to vote
all that was necessary for the conduct of the pub-
