"AN ACT OF INIUMANITY."-Under this heading
in our last issue we alluded to the circumstance of a
man named Stamp having been landed from the Ame-
rican Whaling Schooner "Union" on the bay south ol
the Lighthouse in June last. We were waited on soon
after the publication of the article by persons interested
in the vessel and others connected with her, assuring us
that the statement was not correct in all particulars, and
we at once promised to publish on behalf of the Captain
and Ship-keeper any statement on the subject they
might please to send us, and on Saturday last we re-
ceived a letter signed by the first mate and others, whiclh
will be found in another column. We would here ob-
serve that it was Capt. Orville Cooper, and not William
S. Masters, Esqr., who so humanely attended tc
Stamp's deplorable state, first taking him to his owr
dwelling, sending for a Doctor, and on the following day
by request of the Honble. Henry Fowler, conveyed him to
Hamilton, where the operation alluded to was perform-
ed. The statements of John Grinnell the Mate and
two others belonging to the Union," as taken on oatt
before C. M. Allan, Esqr., Consul for the Unitec
,States of Ameri:ca, An the 12th instant, are as follows :-
Myname is John Grinnell. I am mate of the Schr,
"Union" of Westport. I was mate during the month
of June last. I know Richard Stamp. He was a fore-
mast hand on board the said Schooner in June last.
Sometime in June he was taken sick; about the 8th or
10th day he was taken sick I think. He said he was
not able to stand his watch. I did not require him tc
stand his watch after that time. He continued about
the same till we were off Bermuda about the last o:
June. The day before he came on shore he sent for me
I went to him. He wanted to know if there was any
chance for him to get on shore. I told him if he coulc
pull at an oar there would be a chance for him and th(
Captain would not mistrust him. Everybody, except
the Captain, knew he was going to run away. Th(
morning he left he asked me if he could get or
shore. I told him he could go if he could pull an oar
He said he could. I told him he could go in the boat
He got into the boat and took an oar and went to pulling
I did not come on shore. I did not suppose he was
coming back. I told him he had got to keep pretty
still or the Captain would find out he was going t(
leave, and stop him. I never at any time had any con
versation with the Captain about Stamp being sick..
never at any time had any talk with the Master abou'
Stamp leaving the vessel at Bermuda previous to hii
leaving. 1 cannot say whether or not I thought Staml
was able to pull in the boat at the time he came o01
shore. I cannot say whether or not Stamp was bloate
that day.
(Questioned by Stamp)-Did you not come to mi
some time before we got to Bermuda, and ask me i
I got a chance to run away at Bermuda if I would do so !
(Answer)-I did, and he said he would.
Did you not tell me the Captain was not going ti
discharge any one at Bermuda ?
(Answer)-I told him the Captain was not going ti
discharge any one at Bermuda this time.
(Questioned by Consul)-Did you at any time advise
Stamp to leave the vessel at Bermuda P
(Answer)-I did; because the second mate had ill
treated him.
(Questioned by the Master)-Did you mistrust tha
Snell was intending to run away ?P
(Answer)-No; I knew nothing about his intending
to leave.


Charles Bancroft, the Steward of the Union," i]
his evidence said, Stamp asked the Master for his dis
charge a week or two before they sighted Bermuda
which request at the time was refused and no alterna
tive was.left him but to consent to run away, or remain
on the vessel for an indifferent period of time."
Robert Fabel, of the Schr. Union, in his evidence
stated, I am acquainted with Richard Stamp. Wa
on board the said Schr. with him in June last. Hewa
sick and unable to do duty for about five weeks before
he went on shore at Bermuda. He was so sick that h
was not able to be on deck for many days. I knew h
could not pull the boat to get on shore. I supposed h
was coming on shore to see a Doctor. Stamp was in
such pain that he tried to kill himself two or there
times. I took a knife away from him once. I did no
think when he left, he would live more than one or tw
days.
Wo would ask is it probable that the Master woul
have taken Stamp as one of the boat's crew to pull o:
shore in the condition he was proved to be in, whe:
there were plenty of well men on board, the crew num
being sixteen when six men make a boat's crev
* -unless he had some object in view with regard to hir
besides his services on the occasion ?
We understand that the United States Consul, C. M.
AHen, Esqr., has decided that Captain Tripp should
pay Stamp 3 months' wages and his Medical and other
expenses in Bermuda, and that the circumstance wil lb
referred to the United States Government for final de
* cision.
The following is a copy of the character which Stami
presented to Captain W. S. Tripp, and on which re
commendation the latter shipped him as Cook:-
NEW BEDFORD, Feby. 9, 1877.-This is to certify t
whom it may concern that I have known the bearer (
this for over a year or more and consider him an hones
sober and trustworthy man, and an economical and tid
cook, and would cheerfully recommend him to any on
needing his services. The said person, Richard Stamp,
has been with me in two different steamers and gav
good satisfaction. 0. P. RECTOR,

46TH REGIMENT. Shares Delaware and Hudson Canal 49T,


On Friday next, the 21st September, 1877, this
Regiment will have had the honor of wearing the
Red Tuft one hundred years.
The event is to be celebrated by the holding of
some Regimental Aquatic Sports, one of the few
rational amusements that can be comfortably in.
dulged in at this season.
It may not be out of place if we here allude
briefly to the distinction mentioned, and of which
.this gallant corps, which has now been amongst us
nearly a year, are so justly proud.
Until very recently, we believe 1870, this was the
only Regiment in the British Army that wore a red
Shako Ball or Pompon Rouge. In that year, pro-
bably through an oversight on' the part of some in-
dividual at the Horse Guards, and much to the grief
of the Pompons Rouges, all Royal Regiments were
given the red ball, which now prevents the distinc-
tion being unique, though the 46th are still the only
Regiment without blue facings that wears a red
ball. On foreign service where the helmet is worn
a red puggaree is substituted, and, possibly to make
amends for their action of 1870, the authorities at
Head Quarters, although they have abolished the
use of all others, have spared this pretty red pug-
garee of the Regiment.
The origin of it was in this wise. On the night
of 20th September 1777, during the war in Ameri-
ca, a body of light troops, of which the light com-
pany of the 46th Regiment formed part, under com-
mand of Major General Grey, surprised and attack-
ed a detachment of the enemy in the vicinity of the
Elk river. The enterprise was conducted with
great intrepidity, and a desperate hand to hand
combat on this dark and bloody night ended in the
defeat of the enemy, who left 300 dead and wound-
ed on the field, besides prisoners, arms and baggage.
The enemy vowed vengeance for this attack and
swore that if in any future action they met any of
the light battalion that had attacked them on that
night, they would give them no quarter. To mark
themselves and spare their comrades the soldiers of
the light battalion dyed their shako balls red.
We extract the following verses from an effusion
by a military Poet who served for one and twenty
years in the 46th Regiment:-
And loudly swore they, rank and file,
Their bloods life they would barter
And yield their souls up with a smile,
Ere they'd again give quarter !
So vowed they, and a message sent
To ours, how kind to do it,
That they would have revenge; were bent
i To cause our ranks to rue it.
No quarter to the light bob corps !
Their hate, they ne'er would mask it!
Ours thunder'd back reply, and swore
By They ne'er would ask it!
What then ? They stoop'd, their plumes were
As winter's crown of glory; [white
They rose, and lo! within the light
Those plumes were stained, and gory;
Be this, swore each, my battle sign !
'Tis baptized not with water
But blood, and by heaven I'll spill mine
Ere I'll sue man for quarter.
Bared then was every manly brow
On high held every bonnet;
They cheering stooped, and low ye now,
Each plume has blood upon it!
Each plume is crimson now, and lo
With cheers high heaven's ringing,
As each light bob unto his foe
Defiance stern was flinging !
Ho ho! all grimly cried the few,
When war's rude storm is raving,
Dishonour blast the coward crew,
Would kneel for quarter craving;
You'll know us by this crest we wear
We'll write in blood the story
How Murray's bucks* can do and dare
For Regimental glory.
Thus was it won, and look you boys,
'Tis Glory's fruit you're wearing
Oh be it sacred in your eyes,
This badge of noble daring
May yet wave o'er the angry gun
On rent plain, stained and gory ;
Strike for it then, for there 'twas won
For Regimental Glory.

The old cognomen of the Regiment.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Sin,-An item appears in your last issue under thi
head An act of Inhumanity," seems to call for a repl-
in Captain Tripp's defence.
We who know the true facts in the case of the mar
Stamp, are unwilling that our Captain should beai
blame that is not merited. To enter into details would
be unprofitable and tedious, and we confine ourselves t
a few facts which cover all essential points in the case
Captain T's "inhumanity" consisted in permitting
Stamp to go on shore in June last as one of the boat's
crew. At that time he was not c nsidered a sick mai
in many respects. His actions on board for several
days prior to our arrival off the Lighthouse indicated
better state of health; and when he applied for permis
siori to go on shore it was readily granted. That Stam]
intended to run away from our vessel we well knew
But we never mentioned the fact to our Captain. Stam]
deliberately left our ship of his own free will, and th
fact of his subsequent sickness, doubtless brought o0
by voluntary exposure, ought not to weigh so heavily,
against Capt. T.
We have had striking proof of the bitter feeling tha
prevails against Captain Tripp. Immediately afte
our arrival Gapt. T. was assailed with threats, insults
&c., whenever he landed from his vessel. Very fev
have been the kind words addressed to him during hi
stay in this port. We ask a liberal public to suspem
judgment until the matter is decided by the proper au
thorities.


The writer of this card is not influenced by any othe
motive than that justice be rendered to all.
Whatever the result may be, we shall still proclaim
the humane, noble and generous qualities of our Capt.
whose greatest error is indulgence to all under his care.

- a sufficient number to work the guns, the majority
are hidden in trenches on the ground outside, so
r that the loss of life is less than might have been
n anticipated. The batteries between Grivica and
Plevana do not fire so regularly, and it is believed
that some of their guns have been dismounted.
The Russian bombardment is up to this time a
failure. 400 guns were to have been placed in pos-
ition bearing upon the Turkish position, but up to
, this time only from 100 to 120 have been brought
up, and as yet the effect of their fire is not worth
noticing-if at all perceptible.
The same correspondent from whom we have
gathered these facts, states in later despatches, that
the duel between the two armies still continued on

enable the usual advertisement of her departure to
be published, but we are informed by the Agents
that Post Bills are to appear at an early hour to-
day. The Specie Freight List will close at 6 p.m.
to-morrow, Wednesday, 19th inst., under any cir-

We are greatly indebted, as must also be the
passengers, and the public in general, to the
Agents of the Canima, for despatching a fine sail-
boat to that vessel, to bring the mails on shore, she
having to anchor in the Sound in consequence of
night coming on before she could reach port. The
limited sum allowed for the conveyance of mails by
the Colony is far too small to warrant such an out-
lay as was thus incurred.
The great International Rifle contest commenced
at Creedmore on 13th September. The Americans
won the toss for choice of targets and they com-
menced firing at the long range at 11"44 a.m. The
English and the Americans are firing together, but
as the American papers inform us, "The British
team are firing slowly, the Americans are ahead
but the contest is so close, that it is impossible to
predict the result." Betting on the result of the

TERRIBLE MARINE DISASTER.
At a quarter past seven on the 11th of this month
a very sad accident occurred in the English Chan-
nel. The Forest and the Avalanche were both beat-
ing down channel, but on different tacks, and when
about a dozen miles southwest of Portland the For-
est struck the Avalanche amidships, she rebounded,
then struck her twice further aft, causing her to
founder in three minutes after the collision. There
was no time to launch a boat, the night was dark,
the mass of humanity struggling in the water
could not be discerned-and those who have sur-
vived that dreadful night say that they can never
forget it. The sea was literally alive with drown-
ing human beings-their cries could be heard dis-
tinctly, but no help could be given to them. All
things conspired to make the scene most awful.
The wind was strong and blew in frequent and
violent gusts; there was a steady drizzling rain;
the sea ran very high-and so the living freight of
the Avalanche had to be left to their fate. The
Forest, however, had not escaped unhurt: it was
discovered that she had sprung a leak, and all the
efforts of the crew could not keep it under. The
three boats of the ship were then launched, and the
whole of the crew, as the Captain supposed, and
three men rescued from the Avalanche, took their
places in them; but, alas, when they had left the
ship, by signal lights which were lit in the ship, it
was manifest that some unfortunate men had been
left behind. The sea ran so high that it was im-
possible to return to the ship without being swamp-
ed. It is feared that, as it is, two of the boats have
shared the fate of the larger crafts-for they have
not yet been reported and the sea it is said run un.
usually high.
The Forest was from London bound to New York
and.the Avalanche was from same port bound to
New Zealand. The A. had 63 passengers. One
hundred persons were drowned. They were both
British vessels.

The weather on several:occasions during'the last
week has been rather threatening, but there has
been but little change in the Barometer-the wind
continues easterly. The roaring of the sea on the
South shore has been at times very severe, particu-
larly on the evening and night of Thursday last.
It is generally believed that a gale has passed from
South to North, Eastward of these Islands.
An Inquest was held on the 12th instant, by
Charles C. Keane, Esqr., Coroner, at the Camp,
Scaur Hill, Southampton, on view of the body of
James Elliott, private 87th Royal Irish Fusiliers,
who was killed on the morning of that day by the
accidental falling of a portion of the inner wall for-
ming the ditch of the new fort, where the deceased
was at work-Verdict accordingly.

St. George's College,
St. George, Bermuda,
TRUSTEE: GEORGE R. RANKIN, Esqr.,
PRINCIPAL: MR. J. N. SCOTT, B. A., of Je-
sus College, Cambridge.
This College is designed as the initiative of
a first class place of education for the sons of
gentlemen, whether intending for Commercial
pursuits or Professional Life.
The Master selected, MR. J. N. SCOTT, has
had more than twenty years' experience in the
education of youth in England; anid comes
accredited with testimonials of the highest
character from those among whom he. has
acted. :
The Course of Education at St. George's
will embrace, first of all, efficient instruction
in English in every branch-Reading, Recita-
tion, Analysis and Composition; Writing and
Bookkeeping; Commercial Arithmetic ; G'o-
graphy and Mapping; Mensuration; M-odeirn
History; Scripture History; and French,, ,,
On the Classical side, tuition will be given in
the Latin and Greek Classics; Ancient history
and Geography; Political Economy; and Ma-
thematics; (higher Arithmetic, Algebra,: Geo-
metry, Trigonometry, &c.)
There will be, from the first, a Classical and
a Modern side; and the pupils of the latter
will be exempted entirely from the learning of
Latin and Greek, and be free to devote their
whole attention to matters of more immediate
utility.
In addition, a Junor Class will be formed of
younger boys, who may require some prepar-
ation before entering the College proper.
And, from Mr. Scott's great experience with
boys of every age, good practical results may
be anticipated from thus early grounding and
training the minds of these younger-boys.-
The Class Room is most conveniently situ-
ated in a position about central to the Ihiha-
bitants of St. George.
THE FEES have been fixed for the present
at Two GUINEAS per Quarter, and are inclusive,
except as regards Books and Stationery.* Pu-
pils assemble for work on Monday, the 17th
instant, at 9 a.m. *
It is essentially necessary to mention, at the
outset, that Regularity and Punctuality in
Attendance will be insisted upon; and that no
merely verbal message will be accepted as an
apology for a pupil's absence from class.i
Arrangements will be made hereafter for
the teaching of German, Spanish and Hebrew;
and also of Music, Drawing and Chemistry.
Application to be made to the Trustee,
GEORGE R. RANKIN, Esqr.

SvUGA FRAUDs.-Investigations into the frauds
on the revenue which it is alleged have been perpe.
treated by coloring sugars, promise to elicit more
than the usual interest that attaches to Government
suits involving the fair fame of our merchants.
The testimony is likely to include analyses from
chemical experts, and it these are called in question
there will be lively work among the gentlemen who
manipulate solutions and test-tubes. The asser-
tion on the part of the Government is, first, that
Imported sugars are colored so as to be graded as
at less than their real value, and hence to pay less
than their appropriate duty. To this the reply has
been that the darkened color was due to caramel or
burnt sugar, and it was an open question whether
such coloring did not really as well as apparently
reduce the grade. But now a Baltimore chemist
comes forward ard says that the coloring matter is
ulmic acid, and not burnt sugar or caramel. If
this point can be substantiated, the case must go
hard i ith the importci s, but perhaps in grasping at
ulmic acid the authorities will find that they have
a verj slippery elw.-New York Tribune,

BAND vs. F. CoMPANY.
A return match between the above was played at
Prospect last Tuesday, resulting in a victory for the
F. Company, who had come over from Boaz in
obedience to a hospitable summons from the Band
in return for a past entertainment. A most enjoy-
able day was spent and the company were well en-
tertained after the match. Lieut. Eden did good
service for his company with the bat, and Sergt.
Cull bowled in good form. For the Band Sergt.
Murray was the only one who made much of a
stand. Score:-

THE CURRENT PRICE OF SLAVES.-In the Blue-
book just published relating to the slave trade in
foreign countries appear some letters from Mr.
Morgan, the British Consul at Bahia, giving an
account of the prices current in slave markets in
the year 1875 and the earlier part of 1876. The
province of Bahia has a total slave population of
173,639, which is larger than that of any other of
the Brazilian provinces except two ; and it may be
assumed that the statistic for this region are a fair
sign of the demand and supply for slaves through-
out the whole of the empire, although it is stated
that a great number have been drafted, and are
still being drafted, away in the direction of Rio de
Janeiro. The slaves are divided into five classes,
the highest in rank being those male creoles who
I have a profession, and the lowest those African
females who have none. It does not appear that
any creole females, or any Africans of either sex,
are admitted into the ranks of a profession, and
the prices of all these latter classes is consequent-
ly very inferior. The highest price for a creole
without a profession seems, in the beginning of
1875, to have been 75, and the lowest 60, while
the value of the African males ranged from 60 to
90, that of females being exactly the same as in
the case of creoles. In the succeeding six months,
however, a very different estimate began to be put
upon on all sorts of slaves. The creoles who could
have been bought a short time before for 60 were no
longer sold for less than 75, while the lowest price
for a male African rose to as much as 90, or 50
per cent. In the meantime, the creoles, both male
and female, began to command occasionally much
higher prices than their African rivals-120 being
paid for them by some of the purchasers. The in- |
ference seem to be that slave owners had begun to
appreciate more fully the versatility of the creole
character, while recognizing a dead level of unifor-
mity in that of the "nigger." Whether they
were justified in doing so we do not pretend to say.
The most important and obvious fact of all is that
the price increased all round to a very important
extent. If any conclusion at all is capable of being
drawn from this fact, it is that the supply of slaves
had greatly diminished. This is, at any rate, an
encouraging feature in the case, and it is not by
any means rendered less so by the reflection, which
is justified by another part of the Report, that the
I decrease was in a great measure owing to the ex-
ertions of British officers in checking and thwarting
the atrocious traffic.-Globe.

GET YOUR PASSPORTS.-The London Gazette con-
tains an announcement which is a practical com-
ment on the cases of interference by Italian police-
officers with innocent British tourists. By a special
arrangement with the Italian Government the pro-
duction of passports by Englishmen travelling in
Italy was some years since dispensed with. But in
the face of the numerous outrages committed in the
name of the law on defenceless travelers, our Fo-
reign Office has suggested that, in spite of the spe-
cial arrangement to the contrary, all intending
tourists whose holiday campaign embraces an ex-
cursion to Italian soil should provide themselves
with passports. This suggestion should most cer-
tainly be acted upon. Not only is the effect of the
British arms at the top of this official document and
Lord Derby's signature at the bottom as a rule tal-
ismanic on the densest rural gendarme or carabi-
neer, but it is well nigh impossible for the best re-
gulated Continental tour to be completed without
some accidental mishap or incident in which the
production of this certificate of identity would be
most useful and convenient. It is in all cases the
easiest and most satisfactory means of proving that
one is one's self. In our own free and unfettered
land we have no notion of the scruples and suspi-
ciors that infest the minds of local authorities
abroad. So for ease and convenience sake let those
who mediate transmarine trips expend the necessary

THE SIMPLEST AND BEST METHOD OF COMPUTING
INTEREST ON STERLING.--More mistakes are made
by short methods than by any other. The best way
is to reduce shillings and pence to the decimals of
a pound and to proceed with the sum as if it were
dollars and cents. Find the interest on 84 10/6 at
4 per cent for 1 year and 3 months. The principal is
.84'525, interest 4 4/61. A short way is to reck-
on interest at 5 per cent, when for a year take one
shilling for every pound, three pence for every five
shillings, and one farthing for every five pence.
Then deduct one-fifth for 4 per cent., or add one-
fifth, or two-fifths, for 6 or 7 per cent.

THE RUSSIAN SOLDIER.
In discussing the progress of the EastL'r war we
often have alluded to the outbreak of democratic
sentiments in the Russian army as a probable con-
sequence of any mortifying disaster which it might
encounter. Ever since Plevna, it has been reason-
able to look for demonstrations of this kind, and
the last news from the Danube is that they have be-
gun. The Russian troops, so say the despatches,
clamor against their high officers as responsible for
the miscarriage of the campaign. To take in the
full significance of this it must be remembered that
the supply of Russian officers, both high and low,
is derived so almost exclusively from the nobility
that it is fair to leave the exceptions out of account.
It is only in most extraordinary cases, and after
long terms of service, that a man of the people ever
can gain any rank above sergeant. Admission to
the military schools is reserved to children of the
noble castes, and the pupils are so numerous that
there never is any emergency in which it becomes
needful to descend to the ranks to fill vacancies.
As the possession of a military commission, even the
lowest-that of a cornet-imparts personal nobility
to its holder, if he is not a noble already, and when
he reaches the grade of colonel imparts hereditary
nobility, it is but natural that the privileged class
should lay every possible obstruction in the way of
the promotion of common soldiers to grades whose
possession advances them into a higher social caste.
It often has been said that the most striking differ-
ence between the French and Russian military sys-
tems is that in Russia no common soldier carries a
marshal's baton in his knapsack. Bat the contrast
might be made even more forcible. No Russian
common soldier's knapsack contains even a lieuten-
ant's shoulder knot.
In modern warfare, in which the individual in-
telligence of every man in the ranks now counts for
something and common soldiers are no longer val-
uable merely as automatons, it is wonderful that
the denial to merit without birth of the rewards
which await it to some degree in the military sys-
tems of every other European State, is not fatal to
the army of Russia. Perhaps it would be if the
cause for which it is fighting were not one which
appeals to the patriotism of the peasant and the
burgher equally with the noble. The defeat of an
army thus constituted in aggressive war against
any Christian Power probably would result in utter
demoralization. But defeat in battle against the
Turk only stimulates the Russian common soldier
equally with his Field Marshal to discover and re-
medy the defects which are responsible for it.
There cannot be any doubt that he has fastened
quickly and directly upon the true cause of the fail-
ure of this year's campaign when he attributes it to
the arrogance, the avarice, the prodigality and the
incompetency of his high officers. The Russian
commissariat has for half a century been a nest of
desperate corruption. There is plenty of evidence
touching its conduct this year that it is as bad as
ever. Waste and peculation have consumed half
of the expenditure which has been lavished in this
war. The reports of the management of the staff
testify to practices which recall tales of the luxury
of Xerxes or Darius. Among the officers holding
superior commands there appears also to have been
a universal under-estimate of the generalship and
valor of the enemy, which prompted undertakings
so immaturely planned that no provision was made
against the possibility of a check or a defeat.
The alternative which remains to the Czar is
peace or reform. If he is a hero the bitter military
experience he has undergone this summer ought to
throw him into sympathetic relations with his peo-
ple in their present mortification and distress and
inspire his imperialism with democracy. The
aristocracy, to whose incompetency the misfortunes
of tho present campaign are attributable, arerno more
harmonius with him than they are with the unti-
tled millions of his subjects. The occasion offers
itself for him to found his Empire in affection in-
stead of force, but we fear that he is too much of a
German in his blood, his associations and philoso-
phy of government, to improve it. Yet all that is
needful to rivet to him such enthusiastic attach-
ment as no other monarch in the world enjoys is
simply to give merit, without reference to birth,
free and full play in command of the crusade a.
against the Turk.

THE MESQUIT BEAN.
The following letter from the Crown Lands Office,
Canada, has been published by the Secretary of
State, Lord Carnarvon:-
TORONTO, Canada, 10th May, 1875.
SMY LonD,-A Circular issued to the Colonies
some time ago by the department over which you
preside, relative to their wood products and econo-
mic uses, leads to the belief that much interest
would be taken by the Colonial Office in a new and
useful vegetable product, suitable to the warmer
climates of the empire, as India and Ceylon, Aus.
tralia and the Cape.
There is a small tree indigenous to New Mexico
and Arizona, called Screw Bean or Mesquit (Strom-
bocarpus, or Prosopicpubscenes), no attempts to cul-
tivate which have yet been made in the United
States.
A short notice of it will be found in "The Indian
Tribes of North America," by Schoolcraft, quarto
edition, vol. II., page 105; in the diary of Lieut.
Whipple's survey of the line of boundary between
San Diego and the point opposite the junction of
the Gila with the Colorado river.
He states that the prosperity of his horses and
mules and the success of the expedition were ex-
pected to depend on this bean; that the screw-like


pods grow in clusters of eight or ten upon the same
stem; that both the screw and the pod contain
much saccharine matter and are very nutritious;
that they ripen at different seasons of the year, and
and are very abundant, each tree producing many
bushels.
Assuming these statements to be reliable, the
successful cultivation of this tree in the countries
named-India, Ceylon, Australia and the Cape-
would be a great boon.
The seeds might be obtained through the British
Consul at Galveston or San Francisco, or more con-
veniently, if there is one, in any town on the Gulf
of California.
Should your Lordship take any interest in this
matter a copy of this note might be sent to the Se-
cretary of State for India.
I have, &c.,
(Signed) A. KIREKWOOD.

QUICKEST PASSAGE ON RECORD.-The Steamer
Brittannic of the White Star Line arrived at New
York on the 17th ultimo from Queenstown in 23
minutes less than 7- days. Between the afternoon
(I past 4 p.m.) of the 11th (the day she left Queens-
town) and the noon of the 12th she steamed 293
nautical miles. On the following day 382 miles,
and succeeding days respectively, 402, 404, 401,
;.,; 370, and in coming into York on the
night of the 17th she made 160 miles. The Brit-
tannic beats the Germanic, the quickest previously,
47 minutes on the entire voyage.


CAREER OF LATE COMMANDER RAPHAEL SEMMES, OF
THE ALABAMA" AND SUMTER."
Raphael Semmes was born in Charles county, Md.,
in 1809, and entered the navy as a midshipman in
1836, and was made a lieutenant in 1837, and com-
mander in 1855. While on waiting orders in 1834, he
studied law, and was admitted to the bar at Cumber-
land, Md. He served during the Mexican war both
on board ship and as an aid to General Worth. At
the outbreak of the late war he hold the position of
secretary to the Lighthouse board, which he resigned,
and took command of the Confederate steamer Sum-
ter, at New Orleans. With this vessel he ran the
blockade in 1861, and captured and destroyed several
American merchantmen in the Gulf. He then went
to England, where he was closely watched by the
United States Str. Tuscarora. Although the Tuscarora
was detained twenty four hours by the British author.
cities, she followed the Sumter to Gibraltar, blockading
her in that port, and compelled Semmes to sell his
ship and return to England. In August, 1862, he
took command of the Alabama, built in England, and
manned by an English crew. He continued his ca-
reer of destroying vessels, and on January 11, 1863,
sunk the United States gunboat Hatteras, off Galves-
ton. On June 19, in an engagement with the United
States steamer Kearsarge, Captain Winslow, off the
harbor of Cherbourg, France, the Alabama was sunk,
and Semmes was carried by an English yacht to Eng-
land. After the close of the war he returned to Mo-
bile, where he entered upon the practice of law. He
has delivered several lectures, and published "Service
Afloat and Ashore During the Mexican War" (1851) ;
"Campaign of General Scott in the Valley of Mexi-
co" (1852); The Cruise of the Alabama and Sum-
ter" (1864),and Memoirs of Service Afloat During
the War Between the States" (1869).

Three men were found hanging from a tree in
Texas, and one of them was placarded: "They
stole horses; here is where we found them, and '
here is where we left them.

IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot's-Paper in cases
of great gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It is
in important Healing Agent. To children, weak,
and nervous; persons, I strongly recommend the fol-
lowing method of graduating the action of the plas-
ter according to the will or condition of the patients
viz., to put one, two, or three leaves of wet blot-
ing paper between the Sinapism and the skin.
An old piece of fine linen may also be employed
instead of blotting paper.
Beware of Imitations.
