ARRIVAL OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR RO-
BERT M. LAFFAN, K.C.M.G.
On the afternoon of Thursday last the Royal
Mail Steamer Beta, arrived in St. George's harbor
from 'Halifax, having on board our new Governor,
Sir Robert M. Laffan, K.C.M.G.
As the Steamer entered the harbor, a salute of 17
guns was fired from the Glacis of Fort Victoria.
The Corporation flag, the Consular flags, and
other from Public Buildings were soon seen
flying from their staffs, and large numbers of the
Military, and of the loyal people of the Town of
St. George, speedily assembled on the Market
Square.
Among those present we observed the Mayor and
Corporation of the Town, with Colonel Stevenson,
87th, Commandant, Major J. N. Beasley and Offi-
cers of H. M. 87th Regiment, Major Crawford and
Major Trench, and Officers of the Royal Artillery,
7 Captain A. B. Coddington and Officers of the Royal
Engineers, Deputy Commissary Ravenhill, Sur
geons Major R. de B. Riorden, O'Farrell and Smith,
M.D., W. T. Roberts, Esqr., J.P., Police Magis-
trate, T. W. Mercer, Esqr., J.P., Reverend J. F.
Lightbourn, Rector of St. George, Rev. A. Malim,
M.A., and Rev. J. Bellord, (R.C.,) Chaplains to the
Forces, Rev. W. C. Browne, Officiating Wesleyan
Clergyman, and Rev. R. A. Bilkey, &c.
His Excellency was accompanied from the Steam-
er by His Honor the Acting Governor, Colonel
William Lawtie Morrison, R.E., and immediately
on' landing at the Public Wharf was received by a
Guard of Honor from the 87th Regimbnt, under
command of Captain Ferguson, the Guard present-
ing arms, whilst the Band of the Regiment played
the National Anthem.
The Governor was then presented by His Honor
the Acting Governor to James H. Thies, Esqr,
Mayor, and was pleased to receive the following
address of welcome from the Corporation of St.
George.
To His Excellency
Sir ROBERT M. LAF.FA, K.C.M.G.,
Brigadier General, R.E.,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief,
&c., &c., &c.
May it please Your Excellency:
We, the Mayor, Aldermen and Common Council
of the Town of Saint George, have the honor to ex-
tend to Your Excellency on behalf of the Corpora-
tion and Inhabitants of Saint George's, our most
cordial welcome on the occasion of your arrival as
the Administrator of the Government of this small
y but not unimportant portion of Her Majesty's Colo-
nial Possessions.
We hope and trust, that Your Excellency's resi-
dence among us will be fraught with happiness to
; yourself and the people over whom you have been
appointed to preside by Her Most Gracious Majes-
h ty the Queen.
The relations which must necessarily exist be-
tween Your Excellency and the people of these Is-
lands, we doubt not, will be characterized by wis-
dom and justice, and we are sanguine that Your
Excellency will meet with a hearty response in the
execution of your onerous duties for the welfare of
these Islands, which we feel assured is Your Ex-
cellency's warmest desire.

r In reply His Excellency cordially thanked the
i Mayor and Corporation for their address of welcome
1 to the Islands, and for their kind wishes for his
happiness, assuring them that he hoped and ex-
", pected to spend six very happy years among them,
r. that his earnest desire was for the welfare of the
people, and hoped to receive their hearty co-opera-
tion.
At His Excellency's kind request, he was then
e presented by the Mayor to the several members of
the Corporation, making a few very kind and
pleasant remarks, and soon after took his departure
accompanied by His Honor Colonel Morrison, R.E.,
r for Hamilton.
THE SWEARING IN.
id At 11 o'clock His Excellency, attended by His
- Honor Colonel Morrison, C.R.E., Acting Governor,
the Brigade Major, and Acting A. D. C. Lieut.
4 Speed, R.E., came down from Mount Langton to the
Council Chamber for the purpose of being sworn
into Office. In front of the Public Buildings he
was received by a Guard of Honor of H. M. 46th
Regiment-under command of Captain Allatt, with
Lieuts. Dumaresq and Young, the latter bearing
' the colours of the Regiment-with presented arms,
y the fine Band of the Regiment playing with much
Spirit the National Anthem. In the Hall of the
g Building, there was quite a crowd of persons to
receive His Excellency, to most of whom His Ex-
cellency was introduced by His Honor the Acting
Governor. Among others present we noticed Dr.
Sinclair, P.M.O., D. C: Genl. Wilkinson, Commt.,
A. C. Genl. Lilley, Ord. Store Dept., Lt.-Colonel
- Gordon, R.E., Lt.-Colonel Bennett, 46th Regt.,
SCommissary Wild, Major Richardson, 46th Regt.,
Chaplain to the Forces E. H. Goodwin, The Hon-
orable the Speaker of the House of Assembly S. S.
Ingham, and several Members, N. A. Butterfield,
Esqr., Mayor of Hamilton, J. H. Trott, Esqr.,
2 Provost Marshal General, the Worshipful M. M.
Frith, Esqr., J.P., Police Magistrate, the Rev.
2 Mark James, Rector of Pembroke and Devonshire.

6 Presbyterian Minister, C. C. Keane, Esqr., Coro-
ner, Dr. P. B. Tucker, M.D., Dr. Inglis Lough,
0 M.D.
His Honor then conducted His Excellency to his
6 private office, and thence to the Council Chamber,
where were assembled the several members of the
2 H. M. Council and other Officials and many ladies,
9 and introduced His Excellency to the Members
of Council and S. Brownlow Gray, Esqr., the At-
1 torney General. The ceremony of swearing in
0 then commenced, the Hon. Augustus J. Musson the
senior Member, administered the Oaths of Office to
2 His Excellency and His Excellency in turn admin-
istered the Oaths to the several Members of the
0 Council; after this was gone through other introduc-
0 tions were made-among them the Honorable J.
H. Darrell, C.M.G., R. D. Darrell, Esqr., Solicitor
41 General, Philip Ness, Esqr., Colonial Surveyor, &c.
His Excellency accompanied by His Honor Col-
onel Morrison, soon afterwards returned to Mount
Langton. On His Excellency leaving the Public
Buildings he was again saluted by the Guard of
Honor, the Band playing appropriate airs.
24 The intention of His Excellency to be sworn in
at so early an hour not being generally known the
12 number of persons assembled to give His Excellen-
cy a hearty welcome was not so great as it would
otherwise have been, still the gathering was suffi-
ciently large to show how gratifying his coming
was.


3 Colonel W. L. Morrison's, C.R.E., term as Acting
Governor ceased on the 10th instant, when His
water 0 Excellency Brigadier General Sir Robert Laffan,
K.C.M.G., took the Oaths of Office as Governor
and Commander-in-Chief of the Bermudas. Colonel
Morrison's administration of the Government will
be rather a marked period in the Legislative history
of Bermuda, but we feel assured that His Honor
2 was fully sensible of the responsibility of his posi-
tion, and acted with a commendable earnestness
51 and an evident desire to do what was just and right,


PROSPECT GARRISON CROQUET CLUB.
Weather permitting there will be a meeting of the
above Club to-day, at 4-30 p.m. The Band of the 46th
Regiment will play during the afternoon.
There will be a Cricket Match on the Prospect
Garrison Ground, on Friday next, the 17th instant,
between elevens composed of Officers of the Bermuda
Garrison and Civilians of these Islands. By kind
permission of Col. Bennett and Officers of the 46th
Regiment, the Band of the Regiment will play
during the afternoon,

1gig2MILITARY.-The Head Quarter Office has
been moved from its former situation to a more
commodious and airy location on the North Western
Glacis of Fort Hamilton. Official letters for His
Excellency the General Officer Commanding, and
the Brigade Major, should be sent there in future.

We understand that the Hon. T. L. Wood, lately
Chief Justice of these islands, has been Gazetted to
a Puisne Judgeship of the Straits Settlements; as
the Salary is far in advance of that of the Chief
Justice of Bermuda, we congratulate His Honor on
the appointment, and wish him every comfort and
happiness in his new home.

The Honorable Henry Fowler, late Receiver Gen-
'eral of these Islands, left in the Steamer Canima, on
Thursday last for New York, en route to Belize,
Honduras, to fill the position there of Colonial Secre-
tary to which he has recently been appointed by
the Imperial Government.
We were requested by Mr. Fowler, to say that
want of time prevented his calling on many of his
friends and bidding them farewell prior to his leav-
ing.
Several friends went to see Mr. Fowler off, and
wish him good luck; among them were many mili-
tary gentlemen who, one and all, regret his depart-
ure as a social loss and one that will be much felt
by the Bermuda sporting community.

Arrival of the English Mail of the
24th ultimano.
The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw,
from Halifax, with the English Mail of the 24th
July, arrived at St. George's on Thursday last.
Captain Shaw, with his usual attention, sent us
a file of Halifax papers of the 6th instant, from
which, and from our own files by Beta, we have
copied much interesting War News.

BERMUDA GRAPEs.-A bunch of as fine and sweetly
flavoured grapes as we have ever tasted, were sent to us
yesterday by Mr. G. A. Whitney of Whale Bay, Port
Royal. He informs us that he obtained two plants from
Mount Langton, about two years since, one of which,
died; the other, which was the larger and stronger of
the two, has grown amazingly, and produced the
grapes above alluded to.
Mr. Whitney says that parties requiring cuttings
from this vine, at this, the right season, may obtain them
from him.

ANNIVERSARY.
The Eighteenth Anniversary of the Female Char-
itable Union Society, was celebrated on the 1st of
August according to advertisement. The Members
met at Paget School Room at 10 a.m., and being
marshalled, with banners spread, and headed by
Mozart's Favorite Band, proceeded thence to St.
Paul's Church, where there was Divine Service at
11 o'clock and a highly appropriate Sermon preach-
ed by the Rev. J. L. Lough, the Rector, who took
for his text the 5th Chapter Galatians, 1st verse-
"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith
Christ hath madg&As free." During the Service the
Paget and Warwick Choral Society (whereof Mr.
Ashton H. Robinson is Master), performed in a
most creditable manner a choice selection of sacred
music. 'After Divine Service the members were
again formed in column at the entrance to the
Church and 'opened, whilst the Rev. Mr. Lough
passed through, the Band playing "God Save the
Queen." The procession- then proceeded to the
Lecture Room where-the President and Officers'

being assembled on the Stage-prayers were read.
After which the th3ir was taken by Mr. William
J. Simons, and the Report was read by the Secre-
tary Mrs. P. J. Wood. There were several speeches
made, and after Lecture the, Members proceeded
to their Lunch Room, where there were many luxu-
ries which were enjoyed by a goodly number of
the Members. At the close the Band played the
National Anthem.

SSr,-On peruiL'ng your paper of this day's date
I observe an account of poisoning by partaking of
Preserved Corned Beef, and in order that the com-
munity may be on their guard as to the danger in
eating this Beef I' beg leave to draw attention to
my own case of being nearly poisoned.
On Wednesday last I partook of some Corned
Beef purchased at a store in the Front street.
About midnight that date, I was taken with violent
vomiting, &c., &c., which continued for six conse-

LONDON, August 3.-The Daily News' correspon-
dent sends from Persdin, near Plevena, a graphic
account of Thursday's battle, the substantial facts
of which are as already telegraphed to the United
States. The following closing scenes give a vivid
idea of the extent of the Russian disaster. The cor-
respondent is with Prince Schackoskoy's command
and does not attempt to give any account of condi-
tion or losses of General Kruden's corps, and says Y
that now all hope of success anywhere was d ad. t
Prince Schackoskoy had not a man left to cover
his retreat, and the Turks struck without stint
they had the upper hand for once and were deter-
mined to make the most of it. They advanced in
swarms through the dusk on their first original
position, and captured the Russian cannons before
the batteries could be withdrawn. The Turkish
shells began once more to whistle over the ridge
above Radishoe, and fall into the village, behind,
now crammed with wounded. Streams bf wounded
wending their painful'way over the ridge were irn-
cessant. The badly wounded mostly lay where
they fell. Later, in the darkness, the Bashi-Bia-
zouks swarmed over the battle field and spared not.
Lingering there on the ridge till the moon rose the
Staff could hear from below cries of pain and en-
treaties for mercy, and yells of blood -thirsty fana-
tical triumph. The Turks had our range before
dark, and we could watch the flash of flame over
against us and then listen to the scream of shell as it
tore by us. The sound of rifle bullets was inces-
sant and the escort and the retreating wounded
were struck. About 9 o'clock the Staff quitted the
ridge, leaving it littered with groaning men. Gen.
Krudeni sent word in the morning that he had lost
severely and could make no headway and had re-
solved to fall back on the line of the river Osmao.
There bad been talk of his troops being fresh and
of renewing the attack to-day with his co-operation
but we have no troops to attack with.
A moderate estimate is that we have lost two re-
giments, say five thousand men, out of our three
brigades.
LONDON, Aug. 5.-Dissensions prevail between
the Czar and the Grand Duke Nicholas, and since
Plevna the Czar says he wished himself back at
St. Petersburg.
It is stated that when the Russian head-quarters
were removed from Tirnova to Bjela, the people
were horror-striken at being left to be massacred
by the Turks.
It is not thought the Bulgarians are of much ad-
vantage to the Russians in or out of the army, they
are so afraid of the Turks. At Sistova the panic
was so great that mothers threw their children into
the Danube to save them from the Turks, and the
bridge was crowded with wounded Russians bound
to Gimnitza.

&c., by the Cossacks.

Abstract of the Proceedings of the Honorable
House of Assem bly.
Wednesday, 8th August.-The Atterney General
moved that the Bill entitled "An Act relating to
the adjournment of tbe Court of General Assize,"
be now read a third time.
Mr. Fraser moved that it be read a third time
this day six months-which was affirmed.
Ayes 13-Messrs. F M Cooper, R J P Dorrell, T
N Dill, R D Fraser, W J Frith., J Harnett, T A
Outerbridge, J W Pearman. J N Smith, T F J
Tucker, R Tynes, W H Wilkinson, T J Wadson.
Nays 8-Messrs. N J Darrell, S B Gray, S A
Harvey, H G Hunt, T W Mercer, T D Middleton,
E Pentston, C Peniston.
Mr. Cooper moved a point of order, that as the
Bills set down as the next orders of the day by the
honorable member for Devonshire (Mr. Darrell)
contain money appropriations it would be out of or-
der to consider them until the terms of the Resolu-
tion of the House of the 11th July last are complied
with.
The Speaker decided it would be out of order to
consider those Bills.
Ordered, that the House at is rising do adjourn
to Wednesday next.
The following Messages from His Honor the
Acting Governor were delivered by the Colonial
Secretary:-
(No. 23.)
WILLIAM LAWTIE MORRISON,
Colonel Royal Engineers,
Acting Governor and Commnander-in-Chief.
The Acting Governor transmits for the informa-
tion of the Honorable House of Assembly a copy of
a letter dated 4th August, 1877, from the Colonial
Surveyor in reference to the dangerous state of the
Causeway Road and Bridges and to the complaints
made of the state of the Roads generally.
In his opening address to the Legislature the
Acting Governor drew the especial attention o( the
Home to the necessity of making sufficient provi-
sion for the maintenance of the Roads in a proper
state of repair ; but the Colonial Surveyor is power-
less, from want of funds, to place them in such a
condition as to prevent danger to the lives of Her
Majesty's subjects.
The Acting Governor, too, would remind the
House that the Imperial Government contributed
8,500 towards the construction of the Causeway
and the House cannot but see that, when the Im-
perial Government has also spent such very large
sums on the works of Defence in the Colony, the
maintenance of the Roads, which form to so great
an extent the communication between the military
posts, in a proper state of repair by the Colony must
be an object of the highest importance to the Im-
perial Government as well as to the Colony.
Mount Langton, August 7tb, 1877.
(No. 24.)
WILLIAM LAWTIE MORRISON,
Colonel Royal Engineers,
Acting Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Acting Governor transmits for the informa-
tion of the House of Assembly a copy of a com-
munication dated 2nd August, 1877, from the
Agents of the Quebec and Gulf Ports Steamship
Company, in reference to steam communication
direct between Bermuda and New York and also
between New York and the principal ports on the
Venezuela coast, calling at Bermuda and St. Tho-
mas on each voyage out and home.
Mount Langton, August 7, 1877.
(No. 25.)
WILLIAM LAWTIE MORRISON,
Colonel Royal Engineers,
Acting Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Acting Governor transmits for the informa-
tion of the House of Assembly, a copy of the Re-
port dated 6th August, 1877, of the Committee
which was appointed by His Honor "to inspect
and examine the Public Accounts and to count
the cash in the Treasury" in accordance with pa-
ragraphs XXIX and XXX of Act No. 28, of 1875,
prior .to the departure for Honduras of the Honor-
able Henry Fowler, late Receiver General of Ber-
muda,.
Meant Langton, 8th August, 1877.
(No. 26.)
WILLIAM LAWTIE MORRISON,
Colonel Royal Engineers,
Acting Governor and Commander-in- Chief.
The Acting Governor transmits for the informa-
tion of the House of Assembly the Report dated
27th July, 1877, of the Pilot Commissioniers ac-
companying their yearly account with the Public
of Bermuda.
Mount Langton, 8th August, 1877.


Mr. Middleton moved, seconded by Mr. Fraser:
"Whereas the present position of the Reporter's
desk is inconvenient for the correct report of the
Debates, inasmuch when speakers are addressing
the Chair their backs are towards him, therefore it
is recommended to the House that the Reporter be
permitted to place his desk within the Bar of the
louse, subject on all occasions to the orders of the
House"-which was agreed to.
Ordered, on motion of Mr. Cooper, that a com-
mittee be qppointcd to examine the Accounts of
the Pilotage Commissioners.
The Speaker appointed Mr. R. J. P. Darrell, Mr.
Dill and Mr. Wilkinson for that service.
Adjourned to Wednesday next. *

THE TERMS oF RECIPROCITY.-The Canadian Fish-
ery Commission has resumed its sessions. During
the recess of this body the Dominion journals of both
parties have been crying up the advantages (to Cana-
da) of a reciprocity treaty with the United States.
The popular feeling in favor of a renewal of that meas-
ure is well nigh universal in Canada. It has gained
strength since the Fishery Commission began to sit,
for it is evidently believed that the settlement of the
questions involved in the fishery dispute offers the
besa opportunity for reviving the Reciprocity treaty as
a part of the bargain. Such appears, too, to be the
prevalent impression among the people of the United
States. They want the treaty, but they are not so
anxious for it as Canada, and at present the subject is
neglected by cur politicians as well as by our mer-
chants. But it will be heard from at the next session
of Congress, and it Canada would give up all claims
for royalty from American fishermen, we dare say that
the Reciprocity treaty would be approved at Washing-
ton without much difficulty.--New York Journal of
Commerce, August 1.

IIONORABLE J. RANDOLPH TUCKER.

[From the Baltimorean.]
The subject of one of our sketches to-day will be
readily recognizeAd by thousands in Baltimore fami-
liar with his features, as Hon. John Randolph Tucker,
a prominent member of the last Congress, and re-
presentative elect to the next, from the Sixth Con-
gressional District of Virginia.
Mr. Tucker is a direct descendant from a cultivated,
eloquent, and patriotic stock. His grandfather, the
late St. George Tucker, was born at Port Royal,
Bermuda, and came to Virginia to attend the sessions
of William and Mary College, at Williamsburg.
Here he graduated in law, when that institution was
in the zenith of its fame. Becoming enamored of
Virginia-her climate and her scenery-Ihe conclud-
ed to settle in the Old Dominion, and made it his
future home.
Fired with a genuine and uncontrollable patriotism
for the country of his adoption, he participated in the
War of the Revolution, and was severely wounded at
Yorktown, Va., while in command of a regiment.
After the termination of the seven years struggle,
which resulted so gloriously for the arms of the
United States, he was appointed Professor of Law, in
William and Mary College; was subsequently a Judge
for nearly half a century, serving as such in the State
Courts, in the Court of Appeals and in the United
States District Court. So thorough his proficiency
and so vast his acquirements and extended his re-
search that he was generally known as the Ameri.
can Blackstone." Ile was the author of the popular
"Peter Pinder," and also of the celebrated poem,
entitled Liberty."
Judge St. George Tucker married the widow of
John Randolph, of "Bizarre," who was the mother
of the celebrated J. Randolph, of "Roanoke." Bi-
zarre," is situated in the county of Prince Edward,
Va., and Roanoke," in Charlotte, the two counties
adjoining, and hence the distinction of residence
because of two similar nemes.
Thomas Tudor Tucker, a brother of St. George
Tucker, was also a native of Bermuda, and settled in
South Carolina. He was also an active participant in
the Revolutionary war, was a delegate to the Continen-
tal Congress; and subsequently a representative in
the National Congress from the Palmetto State, and
for thirty years the Treasurer of the United States.
Of the issue of the marriage of St. George Tucker
and Mrs. Randolph, of Bizarre," was Henry St.
George Tucker, the lather of the present John Ran-
dolph Tucker, who is the subject of our sketch. Henry
St. George Tucker was in the war of 1812, was a re-
presentative in Congress from Virginia from 1815 to
1819, was Chancellor for seven years; President of
the Court of Appeals for ten years ; Professor of Law
in the University of Virginia in 1840 and subsequent;
and was the author of the now standard law work
known as Tucker's Commentaries. He was a half-
brother of John Randolph- of Roanoke.
The Hon. John Randolph Tucker, the subject of
this sketch, was born in the town of Winchester, Va.,
on the 24th of December, 1823; graduated at the
University of Virginia at an early age, and was ad-
mitted to practice at the Bar of Winchester in 1845.
He was a Democratic Presidential Elector of 1852 and
1856; and was elected Attorney General of Virginia
1857-'59 and '63, and held the position up to the
time of the evacuation of Richmond by the confederate
authorities in 1865.
After the war Mr. Tucker came to Baltimore, and
was appointed by the authorities of the Baltimore and
Ohio railroad one of its counsel. In 1870, he was
elected Professor of Law and Equity in Washington
College, at Lexington, now known as the Washington
and Lee University; and in 1874 was nominated for
Congress without his knowledge or consent. His
triumphant election, by a vote amounting almost to
unanimity, is fresh within the recollection of our
readers.
Upon all questions of law and constitutional authori-
ty, Professor Tucker is regarded among the ablest
and most learned now upon the floor of Congress.
Legal lore seems to have been a characteristic of the
House of the Tuckers for over a century, and if pos-
sible is becoming more deeply rooted in the present
generation, than it was in the minds of those who
have gone before.
As a debater, Mr. Tucker has few equals; and as
an orator, is the peer of any. His speech on the
constitutionality of the Centennial appropriation, in
the last Congress, was a masterpiece of logic, as well
as legal learning, and his tribute to the virtues and
patriotism of the early fathers of the Republic would
have reflected credit upon either of the great trium.
virate-Clay, Webster, or Calhoun. Where he never
to utter another syllable, his fame would be secured
and his memory forever honored.
Ih, the family circle Mr. Tucker is gentle as a child
and as amiable as a woman; at the festive board, as
genial a gentleman as ever broke bread. He is not
without much of that keen wit and cutting sarcasm
for which his ancestral kinsman, John Randolph, of
Roanoke, was so justly celebrated, and is wont to "set
the table in a roar" with his flashes of humor.

MILK MADE DESSERT.-Among the many dishes of
which milk is the standard material none require it
more than desserts. We are so fond of something, as
the children would say, to leave a pleasant taste in the
mouth, that our dinners do not seem complete without
a concluding delicacy. Desserts add but a trifle to
housekeeping expenses, especially those simply made
of milk and eggs. With a little ingenuity one receive
may serve with variations for so many dishes. Make
a soft boiled custard by using a pint of milk, the yolk
of two eggs, two tablespoonsful of sugar and a table-
spoonful of corn starch, slice two oranges, and line the
bottom of your pudding dish; flavor the custard with
the juice or grated peel of one orange (be careful to


grate only the yellow part-the white skin is very bit-
ter) turn the custard over the orange and bake ten or
fifteen minutes. Beat the white of the two eggs with
a tablespoonful of sugar, and spread on the top when
the pudding is baked and let it brown slightly. For
another pudding, slice four apples and let them sim-
mer in the oven with a little water till tender. Make
a custard in the same way as before, pour over them,
but flavor with lemon. Again, pnt half a can of straw-
berries, peaches or pineapple in your pudding, and
you vary your pudding according to your fruit. The
remaining fruit in the can may be used another day
by making a cornstarch pudding, according to the re-
ceipe on the package, adding the fruit while it is boil-
ing,' to be served either hot or cold, with cream and
sugar or a sauce. With berries it is nice to make a
sauce of a cup of sugar, half a cup of butter rubbed to
a cream, flavored with a teaspoonful of lemon a'nd
vanilla, two teaspoonfuls of vinegar. Then pour upon
the mixture a teacupful of berry juice boiling hot.
This same recipe, with a cupful of juice from stewed
prunes, makes a delicious sauce for a boiled pudding
or roly-poly. Half a can of fruit is sufficient for
a roly-poly. By using a fruit in this way one can
well make two desserts. I will.give one other standard
receipt, to be varied according to taste. Put half a
package of gelatine in a cup of cold water, and let it
stand ten minutes, then pour on a cup of boiling
water, stirring until thoroughly dissolved. Add a
cup of cream or milk, two table spoonfuls of sugar,
and a cup of cold boiled coffee, and mould, to be
eaten cold with cream and sugar. This is called
coffee cream. For chocolate cream, make in the
same way, but add instead of coffee a cup of grated
chocolate boiled in a cup of milk. For orange cream
add the juice and grated peel of one orange and the
yolks of two eggs. For pineapple cream, a few slices
of pineapple, a cut of juice and the yolks of two eggs,
Other fruits may be used in the same way.

The receipts of indiect taxes in France the first
six months of 1877 exceeded the estimate by
$5,000,000.


THE HISTOlY OF SMALL Pox..-How smallpox first
arese among men it is difficult to conjecture. It has
been supposed that it may have been originally deriv.
ed from some disease in the camel, Itshistoryleads
to the settled belief that, while few persons are not
readily susceptible of it, it never occurs now except
from contagion. It does not appear to have been
known in Europe till the beginning of the eighth
century. No mention of any such distemper is to
be found in the Greek or Roman authors of anti-
quity. Now, whatever may have been the defic-
iencies of these ancient physicians, they were ex-
cellent observers, and capital describers, of disease;
and it seems to me scarcely possible that a disorder
so diffusive, and marked by characters so definite
End conspicuous, should have escaped their notice,
or if known should have been obscurely portrayed
in their writings. On the other hand, Mr. Moore,
in his learned and interesting History of Small Pox
has shown that it prevailed in China and Hindos-
tan from a very early period-even more than a
thousand years, before the advent of our Saviour.
That it did not sooner make its way westward into
Persia, and thence into Greece, may be attributed
partly to the horror which the complaint every-
where inspired, and the attempts which were con-
sequently made to check its progressby prohibiting
all communication with the sick, partly to the lim-
ited intercourse which then took place among the
Eastern nations, but principally to the peculiar
position of the regions through which the infec-
tion was distributed, separated as they were from
the rest of the world by immense deserts and by
the ocean. The disease is said to have broken out
in Arabia at the seige of Mecca in the year in which
Mohammed NNas born, i.e., in the latter half of the
sixth century. It was widely propagated by his
wars, and by those of the Arabs afterward ; and it
is generally believed to have first found entrance
into Europe at the time of the overthrow of the
Gothic monarchy in Spain by the Moors, when, to
avenge the well known outrage upon his daughter,
" Count Julian called the invaders," Whensoever
and wheresoever it came, it spread with fearful
rapidity and havoc. What is worthy of special re-
mark is this: That while almost all men are prone
to take the disorder, large portions of the world
have remained for centuries entirely free from it,
until at length it was imported; and that it then
infallibly diffused and established itself in those
parts. Of the more modern history of the disease,
our knowledge is more precise and sure. It tends
uniformly to the same conclusion. There was no
small-pox in the New World before its discovery
by Columbus in 1492. In 1517 the disease was
imported into San Domingo. Three years later, in
one of the Spanish expeditions from Cuba to Mexi-
co, a near covered with the putsules of small-pox
was landed on the Mexican coast. From him the
disease spread with such desolation that within a
ver- short time, according to Robertson, three mil-
lions and a half of people were destroyed in that
Kingdom alone. Small-pox was introduced into
Iceland in 1707, when 16,000 persons were car-
ried off by its ravages-more than a fourth part
of the whole population of the island. It reached
Greenland still later, appearing there for the first
time in 1783, and spreading so fatally as almost to
depopulate the country. Evidence to the same
-effect is furnished by the results of vaccination in
some countries. To take one instance: vaccina-
tion was adopted in Denmark in 1801, and made
Compulsory in 1810. From that time small-pox
disappeared altogether for 15 years, whereas dur-
ing the 12 years preceding the introduction of the
preventive disorder, upward of 3,000 persons died
of small-pox in Copenhagen alone.-Nineteenth
Century.

THE GOLDEN TR EAaR ES OF KURIUM.-Mr. Win.
C. Prime contributes a very scholarly and interest-
ing paper on this subject to Harper's Magazine for
August. He thus describes the finding of the long
buried wealth:
Long before the traditional period of the Trojan
War, Cyprus had cities and commerce. The Phoa-
nician colony became Egyptian for a while after the
fifteenth century, B. C. Kurium had probably
been founded before the Egyptian conquest in 1442
B. C.; hence the accumulation of the art of many
centuries in the treasures of her temples.
General Cesnola found at Kurium only vast heaps
of ruin. The city was built on a bluff three hun-
dred feet in perpendicular height on three sides.
The rock of the bluff was soft calcareous stone, and
around the city, in the sides of the bluff, he found
a terrace a hundred feet wide, cut and hollowed
deep in the rock, in the sides of which were tombs.
Among the ruins on the hill he identified the site of
a temple, and here saw that explorers before him
had made excavations and abandoned them. He
was induced to go deeper than they had, under the
mosaic floor of the temple. At the depth of twenty
feet he struck a dark passageway, which he pene-
trated till stopped by. a low stone door. Bursting
this, he found himself at the entrance of a series of
vaulted rooms in the rock. The rooms were full of
fine earth which had sifted through the rock walls.
The explorer did not know where he was, but he
was standing at the doorway which leads the stu-
dent of art into the hitherto unknown fields of in-
vestigation among the early Greeks and their Phoe-
nician and Egyptian predecessors. The General
soon perceived that the room which he was to enter
was not a tomb. Commencing to remove the earth
in the slow and careful manner which the experi-
enced excavator always practices, he began to find
beautiful objects in goid lying in heaps on the floor
of the vwult. Then came the evidence that he had


opened the treasure chambers of the temple.
Twenty-five hundred years ago the priests in the
temple were suddenly alarmed by the rush of a be-
sieging army over or through the lofty walls of
Kurium. In the wild haste of the unexpected
attack, they swept from altars and shrines, where
they were exposed, the votive offerings of genera-
tions of worshipers, hastened down the dark pas-
sage, and threw them heaps on heaps, into the
treasury vault, closed the stone door, and doubtless
also closed the secret entrance to the passageway.
The enemy came in, and hewed down the priests
before the altars, or carried them away captive to
Asia. None was left who knew the secret of the
vault. The temple was desecrated, robbed, de-
stroyed, its walls and columns hurled down in
hideous ruin, and for twenty-five centuries the gold
of the old Phoenician, Egyptian and Greek
worshipers lay dark and unknown in the vaulted
chamber. From the gold chamber a low doorway,
2 feet 7 inches high, opened into the next vault,
which was the silver room. Black, corroded, un-
sightly as it is, this treasure was not less important
than the gold, for ancient silver objects are very
rare, especially cups and vases. hie.' were piles
of these corroded into masses. But a considerable
number were perfect, and are of the greatest archmas
logical importance. From this room opened
another low door into a third vault, in which were
found objects in alabaster, terra cotta. &c., and be-
yond this vault, and at right angles with it, was a
fourth room, which contained objects in bronze,
many of which were in very fair preservation. From
this room a narrow passageway descended in the
rock, which the General explored for 130 feet and
then abandoned because of the foul air and the
difficulty of proceeding.

EMIGRATION OF CARPENTERS.-Yesterday morning
fifty carpenters left this city on the steamship Mon-
tana, bound for Manchester, Eng. They all have
signed an agreement with Robert Neil & Sons, build-
ers, of that city, to work for six shillings per day, the
firm guaranteeing steady employment for one year.
The employing firm advanced the passage money when
required, the amount to be repaid in instalments.
The reason assigned for engaging carpenters hero is
that there is at present a strike among the Manchester
carpenters for higher wages. Efforts were made by
the Amalgamated Carpenters' Union of this city to
prevent any carpenters accepting the offer of Neil &
Sons, but the required number was obtained without
difficulty. A large crowd assembled on the wharf to
witness the departure. The parting between the out-
going mechanics and their friends was very affecting,
and many -distressing scenes were witnessed.-New
York Journal of Commerce, August 1.
