Glance, Hill, left New York for Barbados and De-
merara on the llth instant.
Capt. McFarlane, of the British Barkentine Albion,
of Liverpool, N.S., referred to in our last issue, reports
leaving Baltimore for Demerara with an assorted cargo,
and left Cape Henry on the 5th inst. All went well
until the 13th-on tho morning of that day, being in
lat. 29-50 N., long. 60-20 W., weather squally, all light
sails and spanker furled at 5 a.m. The vessel, while
becalmed at about 6'30 a.m., and having scarcely steer-
age way, was struck by a waterspout, which hove her
over ; the Captain, who was standing near.the wheel at
the time, ordered lanyards of royal and topgallant back-
stinvs to be cut to relieve the ship, which being done,
and the fore-topmast backstays parting, she righted,
carrying away the foremast and mainmast heads with
all sails, spars and rigging attached. After having
faizzenmast secured by preventer tackles, the weather
being calm immediately after, two men were put over-
board and succeeded in saving nearly the whole of the
standing rigging and ironwork. The sails were much
torn and split by the broken spars. After slinging the
fore-yard with chains and getting as much sail upon
the vessel as could be set, and judging it impossible to
reach Demerara in this crippled state, bore up for Ber-
muda for repairs.
A Cruising Sail Race for Yachts steered by la-
dies only took place in the Sound on Friday last,
and.was more successful, as far as the number of
entries went, than any previous Ladies race, there
being no fewer than seven competing yachts, viz.,
the Mystery steered by Miss Sinclair, the Nameless
by Mrs. Dickenson, the Nautilus by Miss Grace
Gosling, the Undine by Mrs. Gordon, the Julia by
Miss M. Gray, the Psyche by Miss Ellen Wood and
last and least the Irene steered by Mits Jeanette
The weather was everything that could be de-
sired, the wind being moderate from about N.N.E.
A correct time table not being forthcoming one was
improvised from memory and the boats were started
by it. It was evident soon after the start that the
Race lay between the Nautilus and Julia and so the
result proved. The Julia actually received from
the Nautilus 3m. 22s., her proper start being 2m.
40s. In the first time to windward the Nautilus
took from her lm. 34s., and in going to leeward
rather more than a minute, the two boats round-
ing. the leeward stake boat within a few seconds of
each other. A close race ensued but the Julia, prin-
cipally by outwinding her antagonist, gradually
drew away from her and eventually rounded the
stake boat lm. 16s. before the Nautilus; but as the
latter boat had given the Julia 42s. more than she
was entitled to, the actual beat was only 34s.
We append two time tables the first shewing the
actual start and finish, the second giving the cor-
rected start and finish as calculated subsequently to
the race. The Mystery and Psyche fouled near the
.,finish and their respective times are uncertain.

: CORONER'S INQUEST.-An Inquest was held at the
Royal Naval Yard, Ireland Island, on Thursday
last by Charles C. Keane, Esqr., Coroner, on view
of the body af Robert Creig, who was found drown-
ed. It appeared in evidence that the deceased who
was in Government employ, was missing on the
Tuesday previously, and as his clothes which it
was known he wore on that day were found on the
beach near the water's edge, it was supposed that
he had gone in to bathe. Search was made for the
body but it was not discovered till the day of the
Inquest. A verdict in accordance therewith was

THEATRICALS AT PROSPECT.
For some short time back we have received occa-
sional hints and signs that a something in the thea-
trical line was in course of preparation amongst the
Officers of the gallant 46th Regiment which would
cast into the shade of insignificance all previous at-
tempts of the amateur world to rouse a furor
amongst the sober-minded inhabitants of our slum-
bering islets, and which would also serve as a bright
example of taste, style and execution.
As a consequence of these rumors the doors of
the little Theatre at Prospect were early besieged
on Thursday evening last by a crowd of patient
devotees, and as soon as a state of readiness to re-
ceive their tickets was announced by the door-keep-
ers, the rapidly-filling seats attested the fact that
'the latest comers would certainly have to pay the
penalty of procrastination in not being able to find
accommodation, which was fully verified ere the
drop had fallen on the first scene.
Shortly after the doors were open and the house
well packed, His Excellency Brigadier-General Sir
R. M. Laffan, K.C.M.G., entered, and was received
with the honor due to his exalted position, and with
hearty empressement. There were also pr,:.'.tt a
large number of the officers and their wives, toge-
ther with a good sprinkling of the elite of Bermuda
and all the other elements of "a good house."
I We all know that playgoers who attend a per-
formance with the conviction that a rich treat is in
'store for them are generally in a most indulgent
frame of mind, and not likely to allow trifling er-
i rors to mar the enjoyment of the whole; but we
think there were few of the audience, except those
gifted with a transcendent imagination, who were
not taken by surprise with the magnificence of even
the opening scene-long before a drama has time
to develop itself in the ordinary course and engage
attention to the various characters portrayed.
The Brigand" is a drama of thrilling although
doubtful interest, and were it not for careful study,
natural aptitude, and abundant accessories in the
matter of costume, scenic effects, and the all-import-
ant supers," the peculiar diablerie of the plot would
fail to interest the majority of Britons, with whom
brigandage is not a public virtue, nor is it in-
centive enough to arouse even a languid enthusi-
asm; but the wild outlawry of the imperfect free-
dom here depicted in successive combination; the
strong indomitable will, which shrinks at no peril;
the tact and force of character collected around each
incident of the piece; and that very peculiar sense
of chivalrous honor withal, of which the hero of the
hour, and Chief of Brigands, Alessandro Masseroni,
seems compounded, lends a distinctive character to
the whole drama and stamps it with the impress of
a high order.
To define impartially which of the performers
deserved most applause would be almost an impos-
sibility, but on that score we feel convinced there
will remain but little jealousy, as the successive
bursts which followed each tableau, the votive of-
ferings of choicest bouquets, and, more expressive
than all, the silence so carefully observed by those
sage critics, the Gods," during the entire progress
of the drama, must have carried agreeable and
complimentary conviction that such great efforts
were fully appreciated, and must have supplied the
meed of praise to all, in a living stream.
A commendable feature we were pleased to ob-
serve-the ,female characters were assumed by the
softer sex, and although the surroundings convinced
us of the theatre, yet we could scarcely refrain
from believing ourselves spectators of a real-life
incident when the wife of the Brigand Chief stood
before us as if amid fair Italy's mountain passes,
and with fierce combative spirit o'ershadowing her
womanhood directed and encouraged the din of
strife so as to ensure, a safe and easy victory for
those amongst whom her lot was cast against the
soldiers of the Holy Roman Empire.
Incidents such as this could be multiplied, but as
space is limited, we will say of the whole,-and
more particularly of the interspersed operatic airs,
as well as the solemn vesper choral service, made
more weird and sympathetic, occurring as it did amid
the gay and festive pleasures of this pariah throng,
so soon hushed and transformed to calm sobriety by
the solemn tones of the vesper bell; and whilst re-
flecting on this afterwards neathh the soft rays of
the placid moon there occurred to us that wail of
our lowly humanity, so exquisitely expressed by the
"Yet one thing, one, in my soul's full scope
Either I missed, or itself missed me"-
we say, that an amateur club who can carry out to
such perfection a difficult production of this class
must surely have been intended for successful
C 'professionals," if not more successful in other
walks of life. Saying thus we need scarcely com-
ment on the Farces other than by saying they form-
ed a fitting finale.
The performance was repeated with deserving
success on Friday and last evening, and will be
again on the boards this evening, as announced, for
the last time; and we would counsel all who have
not witnessed it to avail themselves of this final op-
portunity of doing so; and we believe even the most
captious critic will acknowledge a defeat, and wil-
lingly award the Laurel Wreath to the Officers
of the Amateur Dramatic Club, 46th Regiment."

STABBING CASE AT PROSPECT.-A serious case of
stabbing occurred at Prospect on Saturday evening
last, at about 9'30, when a civilian servant, named Ty-
nes, succeeded in inflicting serious wounds on the per-
son of Gunner Nye, R.A.
It seems that an altercation took place about some
trifling matter in the officers' servants kitchen at Pro-
spect, between Nye and Tynes, the latter, who had
worked himself into an excited state, seized a pocket
knife which lay on the table and slashed about him in a
very furious manner. Nye tried to ward off the blows
with his jacket, nevertheless the other managed to
wound him in several places, but more particularly gi-
ving him a very ugly stab between the shoulder blades.
The Regimental Guard was quickly on the spot and
took the man Tynes (who is servant to an officer of the
R. E.) to the Guard Room, where he was detained un-
til the Civil authorities were sent for, who had him con-
vo-v-dl to the IHaminiltoii Gaol.
On making enquiries yesterday at the Hospital we
learnt that Nye was l'ro-'j'r'ii i' favorably.
The prisoner, we understand was, when the affair
occurred, on bail for a similar charge at St. George.

PRESENTATION OF A SILVER CUP.
MR. JAMES D. PERENCHIEF :
DEAR SIR,-The Committee, of which I have the
honor to be the organ, has invited you, with the
other officers and members of the Bermuda Loyal
Union Society to meet together this evening to offer
you this present-" A SILVER CUP," bearing the
inscription (" PRESENTED TO JAMES D. PERENCHIEF BY
THE OFFICERS AND MEMBERS OF THE BERMUDA LOYAL
UNION SOCIETY FOR HIS VALUABLE SERVICES AS SECRE-
TARY FOR THE PERIOD OF NEARLY 17 YEARS. LOVE,
LOYALTY, UNITY. AUGUST, 17TH, 1877",)-as a token
of our appreciation of the zeal, fidelity and courtesy
with which you have discharged the duties of the
office of Secretary to this Society. We can hardly
relate to you our true delight in being the means
of conveying the expressions of our united love.
What we offer you is but a poor symbol of our
feelings, but we know you will receive it kindly as
a simple indication of the attachment which each one
of us cherishes for you in our hearts. May you be
as persevering anid energetic in your present office,
and we shall ever feel that nothing can retard
the prosperity of thi Bermuda Loyal Union Soci-
ety. In whatever pursuits you may engage outside
the pales of the Society, we heartily wish you suc-
cess, well knowing you deserve it. May you glide
smoothly over the track of life and reach the grand
terminus full of years, with many honors, and re-
ceive at last that inheritance which is promised to
those who labour for their fellow men. In as
much as you have done it unto the least of these,
you have done it unto me."
I remain yours,
In behalf of the Society,
EMELIUS B. SMITH,
In Armenia the Russian movements are shrouded
in mystery, but it is very evident they are designed
to entrap Mukhtar Pacha and his entire army.
Unless he is exceedingly wary he will find himself
shut up in Kars, without a hope of breaking out.
The fortification of Gallipoli continues. The Turks
do not feel disposed to tolerate a British occupa-
tion of that fortress an4d decline to entertain any
proposal for the passage of the Dardanelles by a
foreign fleet. This resolution is as plucky as it is
GAMBETTA'S HOPES OF VICTonY.-M. Gambetta,
in his recent speech at Lille, said:-" The mere re-
election of the 363 would be an inadequate prote:t
against the 16th of May, and would not give suffi-
cient authority for finishing with this policy of os-
cillation and subterfuge." He expressed tfe belief
that his former estimate of 400 would be exceeded,
now that liberal rivalries had ceased. Recruits
had been gained and the best recruits would be
gained in the West, centre and North west, a part
of France hitherto most apathetic, but which now
began to talk of liberty and republicanism.
THE MINISTER OF WAR NOT PARTISAN ENOUGH.-
The Figqaro, which lately attacked the Duke de
Broglie, President of the Council and Minister of
Justice, as being an obstacle to the proclamation of
a state of siege, now makes a similar complaint
against General Berthant, Minister of War.
HAVANA, August 22, 1877.--The steamer City of
Havana while on her way from Tampico to Tuxpan
ran aground on the 15th on the Tuxpan reefs. She
has filtoen feet of water in her hold. As the steam.
er City of Merida passed her she endeavored to get
her off, but failed. The mails, passengers and
crew were saved: A tug from Key West is ex-
pected to get the city of Havana off.
A Satellite of Mars has been discovered at the
Naval Observatory at Washington.
Steam Tug C. F. Ackermann, Outerbridge, master,
from New York in 4 days and 3 hours, arrived at St.
George last evening, consigned to J. S. Darrell. The
C. F. A. will be employed for towing purposes during
the coming winter. She commenced work immediately
on arrival by towing the Am. Schr. James Slater to sea.

miral DeHorsey, their approval of his conduct in
having put a stop to the'lavlehss proceedings of the

There was heavy general rain throughout Scot-
land, Ireland and the north of England on Tues-

London and most of the home counties. Yester-
day the weather was more settled and fair.
THE WAR IN THE EAST.
LONDON, August 23.-There is scarcely any news
from the seat of war this morning. From the
meagre intelligence at hand it is evident that fight-
ing of an important character is going on at the
Shipka Pass, and news of an exciting character may
be expected from that quarter at any moment.
MORE FIGHTING AT THE SHIPKA PAss.-Thei fol.
lowing official Russian despatch has been received
dated Russian General's Headquarters, Forny-Stu-'
deni, August 21:-" Forty battalions, under Sulei-
man Pacha, renewed the attack this morning on the
Shipka Pass, and were again repulsed. The fight-
ing continues, although darkness has set in. The
enemy advanced simultaneously from Loftcha to-
wards Selvi. Rifle firing began at noon at points
occupied by our advanced guard. The' result is
THE RUSSIANS IN THE DOBRUDSCHA.-According
to intelligence from Bucharest the Russians are
strongly fortifying Kustendje with heavy artillery.
Numerous Russian reinforcements are arriving in
GERMANY IN EARNEST.-A Berlin correspondent
writes that Germany's protest against the Turkish
atrocities is due to the suggestion of the Emperor
William. Although the protest does not contain
any threats, it is of a nature to convince the Porte
that Germany is in earnest.'
OPERATIONS IN BULGARIA.
Forty battalions of Sulieman Pasha's army are
reported as engaged in the effort to drive the Rus-
sians out of the Shipka Pass. This seems a queer
place for so large a force of infantry in the present
crisis. Some days ago we had the report that this
commander had passed the Balkan by one of the
passes further east and joined his forces to those
of Mehemet Ali. That news there has been no
reason to doubt, and if i% was true the attack now
made is at the northerly extremity of the pass, and
the assailants are between the Russian troops that
hold the pass and their supports at Timuova. As
the news probably comes from Tirnova its state-
ment that the pass was attacked by forty battalions
is to be taken not too literally, and probably means
that the Ottamans have attacked with that force
whatever Russian positions near the pass they
found in their way in the endeavors to communicate
with Osman Pacha. Indeed, it seems likely that
this fight is an event in the operation that has been
anticipated of an attempted opening of direct com-
munication between the forces on either side of the
Russian lines. The coincidence of an advance of
the force at Lbftscha against the Russian lines in
the direction of Salvi supports this view. If the
Turks have cut through between Tirnova and the
Shipka Pass their lines now actually extend from
Plevna to Rasgrad; and it is evident that the Rus-
sians concentrated within this extensive semicircle
may strike them with great effect at any important
point on the line.-N. Y. Herald, August 23.

THE WAR IN TURKEY.
The Russians are meeting the same fate in Bul-
garia they met in Armenia. Their plans begun
with excellent spirit and effect are soon seen to
falter and miscarry. When General Gourkho got
beyond the Balkan passes and made such rapid pro-
gress toward Adrianople, the Russian success
seemed half assured by the brilliancy of their ad-
vance, and the supineness of the Turk. The stra-
tegy of Abdul Kerim, which at some future time
when the Russians had reached points of great va-
lue to their invasion, was to overwhelm them, be-
gan to be mistrusted, and it was no surprise when
the chief command was taken from the tardy Turk
and given to the Prussian, Mehemet Ali, of the
Ottoman army, the invasion was then turned back.
At Plevna on the Danube side of the Balkan range,
the Turks under the immediate command of Osman
Pacha, twice repelled the Russian forces. On both
occasions the Turks outnumbered their assailants
and were entrenched. On both occasions the Rus-
Maians fought admirably. In the second battle they
carried two lines of defences, but in seeking to pur-
sue their advantage met with very severe treat-
ment, and the Turks, feeling justified in leaving
their cover, followed the discomfited Russiaus and
made their retreat disastrous. The Russians were
forty thousand, the Turks fifty thousand. The
Generals of the Czar have yet to learn what Von
Moltke could teach them, about concentration of
forces and the use or presence of superior numbers
at any point they propose to attack and carry.
The Russians have underrated their adversary.
They started off on What came to be called, their
promenade to Constantinople, and their confidence
has been undeceived. They find the Turks armed
with ar better weapon than their own troops; they
find them as well or well enough officered for their
defensive tactics; and they discover that the rank
and file fight as stubbornly and fiercely as they
The second battle of Plevna was on the last day of
July, and ever since the Russian forces have been
inert, and their movements for the time seem para-
lysed. They have called for reinforcements and
among others the Imperial Guard has been sent to
the Danube. They have recalled their daring Gen-
eral Gourkho, who had not however, got back with-
out hard effort and severe treatment by the Turkish
forces. They have had to give up the Balkan pass
which they took so cleverly, and it was supposed
would hold at any cost. They are adding to their
ranks every day and are preparing to resume the
offensive, or to accept battle from the Turks, who
in their turn threaten attack. But the delay seems
difficult to explain. The Russians are said to have
nearly three hundred thousand troops in Bulgaria.
It was but a small part of these who were engaged
In the Plevna battles, and the largest returns of
their disasters in those fights do not place them
over fifteen thousand. Why so inadequate a loss
should stop all action by so immense an army is a
problem. It is said, for want. of other explanation,
that the Commissariat department of the Russians
has worked so badly and shown itself so incompe-
tent that they dare not move until it is remodelled.
The Turks have also been adding largely to their
ranks. Suleiman Pasha who has turned back Gen-
eral Gourkho and seems about to attack the Rus-
Sians in force, has a large army; the forty thou-
sand who did so well at Plevna have been brought
up to seventy thousand; and Meh4met Ali, the Com-
mander-in-Chief, probably will have no smaller fol-
lowing. The Russians have accepted a Roumanian
Corps, and with the additions to their forces, should
be able to take care of Rustchuk and other points
not safe to leave uncovered, and also to oppose the
victorious Turks in the field.
In Armenia there has been some movements by
the Russiaps, but whether they are intended to be
demonstrations merely or an advance in force, is to
be seen. They have never yet recovered from their
reverses before Kars, and all demonstrations since
have been cautious and apparently experimental.
The reverses to the Russian arms have done much
to simplify the attitude of the other powers of Eu-
rope. There is less excitement in England over
the prospect which Plevna made more remote, of

LETTER FROM QUEBEC AND GULF PORTS

S. S. Co. have been offP:.,.- a large subsidy to run a
Steamer every seventeen days to the principal ports
on the Venezuela Coast, with liberty to call a- Ber-
muda and St. Thomas on the way out and home.
This offer is under consideration of the Company
at present, and it would be very desirable in the
event of the Bermuda Government 'T -ioui a sub-
sidy for future service, that the bill should be so
constructed as to permit of a tender in connection
with the service noted above.
Steam communication extended to St. Thomas
and Venezuela would carry many passengers and
other advantages to Bermuda.
The service in the crop season must always be
performed as heretofore, by steamers plying direct
between Bermuda and New York, and weekly, and
such a provision would be expected in any sub-
The Company having been advised, through its
agents, that the Bermuda Government has passed
a grant for the past six months, they are desirous
to continue the service at present, in hopes that the
Subsidy Bill now before the Government may be
passed and the contract awarded to the Company.
:The Engines, Boilers and Hull of the "Canima"
have just undergone a thorough examination and
overhaul at a large expense, which we hope will
insure her safety and regularity as in the past, and

A match was played at Prospect on Friday 17th,
betweeuthe Civilians and the Officers of the Garrison
of Bermuda. Owing to the late arrival of the St.
George's part of the Civilian team, play, which
should have begun at 1I was not commenced until
12. The Garrison won the toss and elected to send
their opponents to the wicket. At half-past one
the Civilians having scored between 30 and 40 for
the loss of two wickets an adjournment was made
to the Mess of the 46th Regiment, where the Offi-
cers of the Garrisoa hospitably entertained their op-
ponents at luncheon. Play was resumed at half-
past two and the innings closed with a total score
of 100. Messrs. G. Boyle, Roberts and T. Hunt
doing good service for their side.
At about half-past three the Officers commenced
their Innings which terminated in about an hour
and a half for a total of 71 of which Mr. Carpen-
ter's 20 was the principal scow, Mr. Young and Dr.
Ring being the only others who got into double
figures. It had been arranged that the stumps
should be drawn at half past six and as nearly an
hour remained the Civilians, sent Messrs. R. Gray
and G. Boyle to open the Innings The former
was caught in the second over and then Mr. T. Boggse
joined his brother St. Georgian, and they succeeded
in holding their ground until time was called, when
the score stood at 32, Mr. Boyle having scored 16
and Mr. Boggs 15, one extra completing"'the total.
The band of the 46th Regiment came on the ground
about 4 o'clock, and the large number of Ladies
testified to the interest taken iu the matoh. The
following is the full score :-

We read in a scientific journal; There is a method
which I have adopted in my own house to cool the
temperature of any room during hot weather, and that
is, 0o hang a sheet or a blanket down outside windows
upon which the sun may be shining. This sheet is
wet and the evaporation of the water pro-
duces a deliciously cool apartment. The sheet
is kept damp by having a vessel filled with water
above the top oi it outside, and a piece of flannel ar-
ranged to form a siphon, and touching several portions
of the sheet. The water gradually empties out of the
vessel, and may be replenished it necessary. The
window is, of course, opon. It is strange that so sim-
ple and inexpensive a method has not found favor
here, more especially in sick rooms; a cylindrical-
'shaped tin vessel, with some very fine holes, fixed over
the u:,ndow, would easily supply the water."
THE LAST OF TABLE ROCK.
On the 24th May the last of what was so long
known as Table Rock, at Niagara, broke off and
fell into the river. The mass weighed nearly sixty
tons, and, up to 1870, over four thousand names of
visitors had been carved upon it. The part which
fell on the 24th composed only half of the original
rock, the rest having fallen in. On Saturday, Jan-
uary 1st, 1829, a surface of the rock, supposed to be
the size of half an acre, forming the bed of Maiden
Walk,broke loose, and was precipitated into the im-
mense chasm below. The crash was heard for a
distance of five miles, and the effects in the immedi-
ate neighborhood resembled the shock of an earth-
quake. The water running under the bank is sup-
posed to have caused the fall on the 24th. The
shock when the rock struck the water was distinct-
ly felt three miles from the fall. Several of the trees
that stood on the rock are now seen standing in the
#Iver as erect w when in their original places on \

[ THE CORNED BEEF QUESTION-AND AN-
To tke Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIB,-I noticed in your last issue a letter from
"N.C.O.,.A.S.O.," containing mauch expeieoneo of
"Corxed Beef," more "ignorance of the cause" of
an illness, and most abundant, although unscirntif-
fic, advice as to eating any more tins of preserved
corned beef, and suffering in consequence.
I arrive at the conclusion that, as a TIN was opSn-
ed, and as no other person had a severe illness except
the "N.C.O." in question, he must have made rather
a square meal" of it; and in fact must have eaten
all but-the tin work! Now, he may suffer from
occasional indigestion, and if that is the case, 2 tbs.
(or perhaps 4 tlb.) of solid meat on an ordinary
stomach, after a long fast, and an enormous appe-
tite has been allowed to assert itself, is past a joke,
and as a consequence must have proved a severe
wrench to his physical system; but it would appear
that his mental system was equally prostrate when,
as he states, he actually forgot to mention to his
physician that he had partaken (?) of a tin-yes, a
solid tin of corned beef 1
I have often noticed, with much misgiving, that
the directions on the wrapper afford no information
or warning to the thoughtless as to the quantity an
adult should be satisfied with for a meal; and any-
one might infer that as it is put up in 2 and 4 tb.
tins, the smaller ones are barely enough for one
diet for a youth, and that the larger ones are not
too much for adults. This should be remedied !
I pen these few lines also in the interests of the
community: in the interests of the merchants and
others who may have now got quite a large stock
of this valuable adjunct to the staple diet, and who
may find it rather difficult to overcome the natural
suspicion of consumers now that these warnings are
being circulated, and an ordinary illness ascribed to
poisoning" by corned beef; and also in the inter-
ests of those to whom the diet has hitherto proved
nutritious and beneficial as well as economical and
for which a substitute may not be easily provided.
It would be desirable if the manufacturer of such.
a commodity could and would conscientiously war-
rant that no poisonous or other deleterious agent is
employed in its preparation for the market. If this
cannot be obtained, then I think the authorities
should interfere, and cause a careful analysis of this
" doubtful" import to be carried out.

HAMILTON, 14th August, 1877.
SIB,-I should be loth to lend my pen in uphold-
ing the sale of impure food, but cannot agree with
" N. C. 0., A. S. L.," in his attempt, dated 7th in-
stant, (published in your edition of this date),, to
fill the mind of an intelligent public with a preju-
dice he appears to have created out of pure fancy.
During the past six weeks I have partaken, of
course in moderation, of the corned L'. on more
than one occasion, but none of the symptoms of
poisoning experienced by "N. C. O." have occurred
Has "N. C. O." fully satisfied himself that the
quantity of beef eaten rather than the quality of
the beef was not the primary cause of his indis-
position ? FIAT JUSTITIA.

THE MOZART BAND.
Being in the neighborhood of a Field entertain-
ment two days ago, I was attracted by sweet music
emanating from the above Band, and thought it
was to be regretted that it is not more patronized.
It has improved very much since I last heard it,
somo months ago, and I learn that they avail them-
selves of the best opportunities inu their power of
obtruning instruction, and devote much time to
practice. It consists of about twenty performers,
and the cost of instruments and the necessary cul-
tivation of course draw largely and seriously upon
the feeble means of those who have to work daily
for their maintenance,; therefore it seems to me
it is the duty, as it; should be the pleasure, of the
inhabitants to aid them in their laudable efforts to
develop native talent, and the most encouraging
and best possible way to do this is to eoploy them;
and as we have so many entertainments in both
summer and winter, the enjoyment of which is en-
hanced by music, I think it would be but right to give
this Band consideration; .and if it were frequently
called upon it would enable them to make their
charges moderate. They were highly thought of
and received much kindness at the hands of our
late Governor, which is a proof of their respectabil-
ity and good condict. Mr. Robinson, the Master,

DECISION IN ADMIRALTY.
Judge Blatch ford, in the United States District Court,
filed yesterday an important decision as to the liability
of vessels for their cargoes. In June, 1875, Dreyfus
& Co., wholesale wine merchants, shipped on the ship
Black Hawk, from San Francisco, sixty-seven pipes ofl
California wines for New York. The bill of lading
contained a clause stipulating that the vessel is not
accountable lor breakage, leakage or rust, if properly
stewed." On the voyage one of the pipes had its head
broken in and nearly all of the wine was lost. Drey-
ius & Co., sued for the value of the wine and the
owners of the Black Hawk set up in defence the con-
tract in the bill of lading. A vast amount of evidence
was submitted on both sides. Judge Blatchford, in
reviewing tbh' case, says that no doubt, under bills of
lading of this kind, it is not sufficient for the libellant
to show merely that there was leakage during the voy-
ace. It is for them to sho-v negligence on the part of
the vessel in respect to handling or stowing the wine.
The evidence showing that the pipe in question was
shipped in good condition and that it was injured while
on the vessel for want of proper stowage, the Court
rendered a verdict for the plaintiff, with a reference to
ascertain the amount of daannges.-New York Herald,
A VALIANT RUNAWAY.
Major-General Pearson has mysteriously disappear-
ed. He has not been seen since Saturday evening.
He was loudest in his boast of what he would do with
the military under his command, as the public speech
which he made to the strikers on Friday last will tes-
tify. It is now learned that after the first firing by
the Eastern troops, which was. attended by so much
slaughter, Pearson returned to the Union Depot Hotel
ac(wmpanied by Adjutant General Latta and Secretary
of State Quay. They remained here until yesterday
morning, then, inquiries as to their whereabouts
becoming numerous and pressing, they determined to
leave the city. They then proceeded to the Monon-
gahela wharf, whey they took a small boat and steam-
ed down the Ohio River oat of harm's way. When
they departed it was their intention to proceed to Ro-
chester and take the train there for Harrisburg. Gen-
erti Brinton, comrnmandipg the Eastern militia, speaks
rather uncomplimentary of General Pearson. He aid
that Pearson left the round house about nine o'clock
on Saturday night disguised, and he had neither seen
nor heard of hinm inne. (Uenairal Laude pronounced
Piarson a coward, and the whole division spokeof him

believe the British Governatent would shortly ask
authorization for a fleet to enter the Bosphorus in
certain contingencies in order to protect Christians.
It is said the Porte replied that the fleet could only
come as the-avowed ally of Turkey. It is also as-
serted, though on doubtful authority, that this re-
ply was withdrawn on the energetic remonstrance
of Mr. Layard, the British representative at Con-
LoNDoY, August 12.-French politics is begin-

believed probable, and it is also thought that a

be recognized by Germany.
Notwithstanding profound peace prevails through-
out France, the Ultra-Conservative papers are urg-
ing the Goveinment to declare martial law. There
is a report, in fact, current that the Cabinet have
already resolved upon this step, and some journals
discuss it in the light of a foregone conclusion
Yesterday's Univers said ; "If the Ministers have
really decided, as alleged, by five votes to four, to
proclaim a state of siege, we shall highly approve
of the measure. We ask for a state of siege that
the electers may vote freely and be uninfluenced by
the falsehoods of the Radical propaganda."
The Univers believes an immediate proclamation
of martial law is rendered necessary by the license
of tre Radical newspapers, which dare to talk of
civil war unless their candidates obtain a majority
at the apr-oauhing elections.

hopelesa task of ex'erminating those real represen-
tatives of conservative liberalism-the Republicans
-who resemble some wicked animals that, when
struck, defend themselves. Women and boys are
guilty of high treason if they sell on the highways
and hedges the smallest, or largest, republican
newspaper. They reply by prosecuting the prefects

keepers if prevented from starting the sale of books
and newspapers. Editors take actions against each
other for defamation of character, or for calumni-
ating their sheets. The population seems to be
absorbed into caucus, c mmittees and councils of
legal resistances. Where the government oppresses
the oppressed turns and calls the oode to Its aid.
Dismissed officials, afflicted with the sin of repub-
licanism, prove the most active defenders of the
Republic, and the authorities cannot touch these
propagandists, although the railway porters, oom-
mercial trayellers and coffee-house keepers are sub-
jected to a martial-law surveillance. To have pro-
duced this state of things is apparently ill France
has obtained from the coalition in power during the
past two months.
Whether or no4 the Republicans put their trout
in God they are certainly keeping their powder dry.
The country bai not been terrified by administra.
tive measures. It remains calm and resolved,
awaiting voting day to give the coup de grace to the
coalesced monarchists, if the latter do not perform
that happy despatch in the interim tbermsoIves. The
Royalists and Bonapartists abuse each other more
virulently than they ever did the Republicans, and
the latter look on with a smile, with ranks closed
up, where not a soldier has fallen out, and pre-
pared to march to the urns with the compactness
and discipline of a regiment of Ponmuieranians. The
coalition ought to throw up the sponge; all its cal-
culations, all Its hopes and dreams have proved
false. The Republic's enemies, instead of destroy-
ing it, have made it a definite success.
Union is said to make torce. It would seem at
present on the part of the united rival monarchists
to make only a farce. Thete are some lamentable
casOe of applying the two wpights and the two mea-
sures, which cannot increase respect for the goveit-
ing classes; in the provinces the circulation of Re.
publican journals is suppressed and cafes closed;
while no such measures are attempted in Paris,
writers are fined for reflecting on the Presilent of
the Republic, while Monarchal journals are free to
denounce the Republic as it may seem to their good
will and pleasure, and Republican editors con-
demned to go to prison, have to go there, while
another condemned, Paul de Cassagnac for exam-
ple, is not invited to undergo his outstanding san- -
t:ance. It is then not astonishing that, Ina wpesence -
of the existing topsy-turvy, that the revenue for the
three mouths ending the 30th Juce is nearly eleven
williofi francs less than Ihe receipts for the March "
quarter, the decrease ahi'ly being under the heads
of Registration and Stamps, thus eloquently cor-
roborating the depression of affairs. This result
will be attached to ministers like a chain ball when
they resolve to address the electors, who will ask
them frequently, for masks can no longer be worn,
are they for the King, the Emperor, or the Republic
It is consoling for those who cannot goto the coun
try at this epoch to know that Boileatt wrote that
the most desolate place during the dog days was
the fields; thick walls and high houses afford more
shede then than the most venerable oaks; the cool
side of the ruins of the Tuileries, or the aisles of
Notre Dame, from a veritable hunter den Linden for
a Parisian fixed like a plant to his peculiar spot."
A nest with vendure clad is difficult to find in the
suburbs of Paris, despite the assurances of guide
books and house nar-nt. There are some habita-
tions, asserted to ful', Voltaire's conditions, where
the occupant can "live or die according to hia

The papers have confounded a death. It is La-
ferriere the actor, and not Leverrier the astrono-
mer, who is dead; the latter is indeed very ill,
suffering from sleeplessness, like Bismarck ; the
only relief he experienced is-to be wheeled to, and
left, well muffled up, on a balcony during the
night, to look at the stars to propound, and to re- -
volve problems. Laferriere was an accomplished
'artiste, and dabbled a little in literature; but he

notice states Laferiere received, shortly after the
July revolution, 1880, some lessons from Talma,
which is the more astonishing, as the great tragic
actor died in 1826.

'SULEIMAN PASHA'S ADVANCE,
The daring game played by the Russians two
months ago is now, to all appearance., about to be re-
torted upon themselves. It will be remembered that
the capture of the Schipka Pass was brought about by
Gen. Gonrkho's passing through an adjacent defile to
vssail it in the rear. This lesson has not been lost upon
the active General now commanding in Roumelia ; and
a glance at the map will suffice to explain his plan of
action. Between the Schipka and D)emir-Kapu
Passes, now held by the Russians, lies the Fereditsch,
Tvardytch, or Tvarditza Pass, traversed by a hors6-
path, which,.,ir ..-!. over the ridge of Tvardytchka-
Planina, debouches at length upon the Bulgarian thown
of ITelena,on the highway running southeast of Tirnova
to Slivno. Suleiman Pasha has already advanced as
far as the villhgo at the mouth o! the defile unopposed
save by unfavorable weather, and should he succeed in
passing the mountains and assailing the Russians in,
the rear, while Rassam Pasha, l',..-. with his recent
victory at Kalofer, attacks them in front, they will
find it very.hard.to hold their ground. And should
they be forced to give way, all the fruits of the bold
dash into Roumelia will be forfeited, Russia will lose
her sole remaining trophy, and the present unpopula-
rity of its originator, Gen. T."n1- g, will be over-
powingly increased. .
This, indeed, is the really important event of the
last few days. It matters little whether Rustchuk is

the Turkish Army that lost the battle of Topkhand,
whether fact or fiction be responsible for the sensation-
al atrocitiess" But the threatened passage of the
Balkans by 30,000 excellent troops to join MEInEMET
Au'S 60,000 in Bulgaria, and menace the Russian
le!t with an attack by superior numbers, is 'a contin-
gency which no one can call unimportant. Even
were the assault repelled, the establishment of forti-
fied camps at Rasgrad and Osman-Bazar, held by.
nearly 100,000 men with Turkey's best General at
their head, and '.- -i.:' an open line of communi-
cation with the quadrilateral in their roar, would put
an'end to Russia's conquest of Bulgaria for this year J
at least. It is true that at-present the Turkish Gen-z
eral seems disp'osed to content himself with the poss"-
ession of the pass itself ; but'should a favorable oppor-
tunity present itself, it is hardly likely that he will
stop there. The wfiole situation- is very much that of
the Pyrenean campaign of 181.3, when WELLINGTON,
having met and checked SoLrT'S advance through the
Maya Pass, forced him back into thy mountains, ex-
pelled the French from Pampeluna, and then, by. a
skilffIl march through an adjoining defile, established
his whole Army on the soil of France. Whether the
parallel will hold good to the end remains to be' seen.

THE QUEEN OF TABLE WATERS.
The Apollinamis Natural Mineral Water," after
having achieved so brilliant a success in Great
Brittin, is about to be introduced to the notice of
cur cousins across the Atlan'ic and of or colonial
brtl'ren. Looking back ofer the short space of 4
yedrs, it is surprising to note how rapid and how
compilefe lha been the success of this pure natural
eff'rvescent table walker in conquering the esteem
and establishing itself in the favor of the upper ten
thousand, as well as of the great middle class.of
this country. Four years ago it was hardly known
even by 'ame in England. 'Now its sale are coun-
ted by millions of bottles.*'It has been found ex-
actly to meet a great i aut of the time. We have
learnt from the researches of physicians and ofsani.-
tarians that the ordinary water supplies of compa-
nies, and still more the wlls, springs and rivers of
country places, are liable to accidental and some-
times to permanent impurities from surface drain-
age into them, or F- .r more direct sources of pollu-
tioc, and to the faults of our water supply are due
a great number of the cases of preventable disease
and death. Cheblera, typhoid, summer diarrhea,
and many similar forms of disease have no ftars for
those who drink an absolutely pure table water such
as the Apollinaris. On the other hand, its delicate
flavour, its '.:- and exhilarating sparkle, and
its valuable digestive qualities,' give it peculiar
chances as a daily drink. To wine drinkers it has
the advantage of being, in the words of our accom-
plished wine juror, lr,. Vizetelly, "incomparabty
dlicalte for mixing with wine and spirits," taking
nothing from the bouquet and flavour,, and adding
a pleasant sparkle to-those, which are flat. As a
preven.ivc of gout and rheumatism it has the re-'
commendation of the most eminent physicians, and
as a .1i,.sli;e water it is habitually prescribed by
the Court physicians and,by all the best known prac-
titioners ot medicine and surgery throughout the
country. "It is," as the World says, "the vogue in
the clubs," and authorities as diverse as the Medical
Times and Gazette and the Morning Advertiser join in
pronouncing it as "incomparably superior to manu-
factured aerated waters," which the Pall Mall Ga-
sette and the British Medical Journal remind us are
manufactured from sources of water supply which -
are by no means always free from reproach. A
series of soda-waters examined not long since by an*
eminent analyst were found to contain the most
dangerous organic impurities; while an eminent
fellow of the Royal Society found that the, aerated
water in syphons was habitually contaminated with
lead. Chemists in Glasgow and Calcutta bavelate-
ly made similar announcements; so that the Sani-
tary Record pronounces the Apollinaris Wateito be
at once "incomparably the best, as well as the
cheapest, of table waters." In order to be economi-
.cal in its use, if is necessary when cnly a glass or
two is taken from one of the large bottles to' recork
it with one of the company's patent corks (Fleming's
patent), when, it the bottle be laid on its side, the
water is found fresh and sparkling, if re-opened
TURKEY'S RIFLE CONTRACT.
Stoppage of thez Providence Tool, Company's Works
S on account of a hitch in payments.
PROVIDENCE, R. I., August 1.,. 1877.-The an-
nouncement was made to-day that the entire es-
tiablishment of the Providence Tool. Company, in-
cluding the main works and the branch con-
cern, had shut down work for the present on
account of a difficulty with the Turkish government
in regard to the payment for the Martini-Peabody
rifles, which the Company are making. No previ-
ous intimation had, been given, and the employee
of the Tool ipompany and the public were quite
surprised at this sudden cessation of business in the
middle of the week. Inquiry at the works reveals
the fact that the company have been for some weeks
unable to obtain money from Turkey for arms
manufactured and ready to be turned over to the
officers of the Ottoman government, and under the
circumstances deem it prudent, to stop operations
until the money is forthcoming.
The original contract with Turkey for rifles was
for 600,000. Over 400,000 rifles have been made
and paid for, and there remains upward of 150,000
to complete it. The last lot of rifles the company
retains in its possession and will not let them go un-
til it sees the Turkish funds. As the company is
suffering under financial embarrassment its credit
is not, large and it is not disposed to take any
additional risks. The works are therefore stopped
and the several hundred employs discharged until
the difficulty shall be over. The company have
recently arranged all its July payments, and ceases
operations now before 'it. becomes involved in lia-
bility for this month. The.payments for the rifles
have been regular until recently, and arrangements
may be made in a day or/two.so that the payments
will continue, and then the. wqrks will start up;,
on the other hand, no more money may be ob'ained
from the Turks and in that case the Tool Company
will look around for another customer for its rifles,
and failing to find one m.ay have to give up basi-
ness altogether. The rifles have given great satis-
faction to the Turks and this hitch in carrying out
the contract is solely due to the financial pressure
under which Turkey is laboring at present.
A CURIOUS OLD NEWSPAPER.
There has lately been discovered in the library of
the University of Heidelberg, a copy of a newspaper
which proves to be the oldest periodical of which there
is now any certain knowledge. It is a quarto volume
bearing date 1608, and is supposed to have been print-
ed by John Carolus, of Strasbuig. The paper was
issued we&kly-each number consisting of two sheets.
It was mainly occupied with letters from the corres-
ponding States, which were contributed regularly. It
is interesting to note that letters from Vienna were
about 8 days on the route; frbm Venice 14 to 17
days ; and from Rome twenty-one days. When the
matter contained in the letters, t6geteor with the news
retailed at second-hand failed to fill the sheet, the re-
maining space was left blank.
Intelligence of'every sort found a place in the jour-
nal. Among the most interesting occurrences noted
was the manufacture of the telescope by Galileo. The
correspondent from Florence writes, on September 4th,
to the effect that the Government of Venice made a
considerable present to Signor Galileo, of Florence,
Professor of Mathematics at Padua,.and increased his
annual stipend by 100 crowns, because with diligent
study he found'out a rule and measure by which it is
possible to.see places thirty iiiles distant as if they
were near, and on the other hand, near objects to ap-
pear much larger than they are before the eyes."
The news received 'from Prague affords a disturbed
picture of phlunder and murder in tho streets of the
city. It appears that at this period men and women
were daily seized by bandits, robbed, strangled, and
thrown into the AMoldaun. Seven bodies were taken
from the water in one day, and t ,another time seven
malefactors were apprehended, who confessed that on
the 18th of this monthly they threw about fourteen per.
sons into the water, and that their band numbered
about 80, who were, for the most part, natives of
PHILADELPHIA, August 10.-THE McBRIDE IN.
QUEST.-The Coroner's ,jury, in the case of Win.
McBride, who was shot while attending a meeting
of so-called workingmen on the 26th ult., which
was dispersed by the police, rendered a verdict
to-day. They find that deceased -was present at an
assemblage which had been prohibited by the
Mayor, and say that although the person who
inflicted the wound which caused the death of
Win. McBride is unknown to this jury, it is pro-
per to add that while the deceased was present in
common with many others in disobedience of or-
ders, the responsibility of his death rests entirely
with those assembled. The police officers appeared
as conservators of the a peace and acted under the
orders of the Mayor, who by his prompt and de-
termined action in suppressing all outbreaks at
this point as well as others during the troublous
time? deserves the hearty. commendation and
thanks of all peace and order loving citizens.
