Two events of rather a sensational nature have
occurred within the past eight days. The first in
the sudden departure from Hamilton, of Mr. James
Dunkley, saddler and harness maker, and of the
discovery in the Town of St. George of a variety
of articles, to the value of about one hundred pounds,
brought-with other materials, &c., from the Ger-
man Schooner Clara, Captain Wessals, which ves-
sel was wrecked on the northern reefs of these
Islands on the 29th ultimo-by the Steam Tug C.
F. Ackermann in conjunction with a whale boat from
St. David's Island, belonging to Mr. Robert Fox.
Dunkley, who has been doing business in the
town of Hamilton for ten years-having previous-
ly carried on a similar business in the town of St.
George, left these Islands on yesterday week in the
Royal Mail Steamer for Halifax. He secured his
passage with a ticket obtained by a friend-in his,
the friend's, name-and as might be supposed from
the abruptness of his departure and of his manner of
doing business of late years, that .the balances in
his books, where a balance has been attempted to
be struck, are anything but satisfactory. His cre-
ditors are numerous and some of them are claiming
for large amounts,
In reference to the wrecking affair. It appears
that the Tug Steamer C. F. Ackermann, owned by
Captain Luckenbach, in connection with a whale
boat belonging to Mr. Robert Fox of St. David's
Island, brought to St. Georges from the wreck of
the Clara on the 30th September, a large number of
articles, such as sails, rigging, nautical instruments,
provisions, &c., some of which only, it seems, were
taken to and deposited as requested, as well by
special as by public notice in this Gazette, at the
Stores of the Agent, John Fowle, Esqr., at Man-
grove Bay. On yesterday week the Worshipful
Morris A. 31. Frith, Police Magistrate for the
Town of Hamilton, accompanied by Captain Wes-
sels, and his Agent, visited St. Georges, and at once
placed himself in communication with the Wor-
shipful W. T. Roberts, the Police Magistrate for
that Town, who soon despatched his Chief Con-
stable, Clerk, and others of the force, to arrest cer-
tain parties and to ascertain the whereabouts of
the missing articles from the Clara. In the course
of that and the following day a great many of the
goods were found in various places in the town,
on board vessels in the harbour, and on the Island
of St. Davids-and identified by Captain Wessels.
A further investigation takes place to-day. Cap-
tain Luckenbach and Mr. Robert Fox, who were
arrested on the first day of the enquiry, have been

THE WESTERN ENTRANCE TO THE TOWN OF HAM-
ILTON.-We understand that it has been decided by
The Board of Works" not to open a new road at
the Western Entrance to Hamilton, but to widen
and straighten in some measure the old one, by
extending it over a portion of the land of W. S.
Barr, Esqr., south, and removing the two lodges
on the northern boundary of the old road, and so
continuing it to the full width to the westward of
the property recently purchased by Harley Trott,
Esqr.

Great commotion was caused the other day by a
tremendous explosion which was heard near the
Town of Hamilton. Some people thought it was
an earthquake and some that the Magazine at Fort
Hamilton had exploded; but it turned out to be
only one of those large CANNON CRACKERS H.
A. GRANTHAM has for sale at 46 and 47 Front St.,

INDIAN FAMINE RELIEF FUND.-On Sunday be-
fore last, October 14th, Sermons were preached and
collections made in almost all the Parish Churches
of these Islands and in Trinity Church, Hamilton,
in behalf of the Fund for the relief of the suffer-
ers by famine in South India.
The amount of the contributions on that day,
Seventy one pounds, was forwarded to England by
the Mail via New York on Wednesday last.

GOVERNMENT FRESH MEAT CONTRACT.-We un-
derstand that Messrs. Trott & Cox, were success-
ful in" their tender on Friday last for the supply for
three years, of the Fresh Meat to the Naval and
Military Forces in Bermuda.

The following, clipped from a New York Illus-
trated Paper dated in September, has been handed
to us :-
AN OCEAN TRAMP."-Mr. Clemens, better known
as Mark Twain," in a letter to the Hartford Cou-
rant, solves the mystery of the bark Jonas Smith,
reported spoken near Cape Fear, recently. He was
on a voyage from Bermuda, May 25, 1877, on the
steamship Bermuda. The bark Jonas Smith was
spoken with a signal of distress flying. She was
ten days out from Bermuda, having left there for
New York with five days' provisions for a crew of
about fifteen coloured men. A boat with three
men came to the steamer and got a supply of beef,
potatoes and sea biscuits. The facts about the
vessel's history and crew, as told by Mr. Clemens,
are as follows : One of the three men who. came to
us in the boat was the captain and owner of the
vessel. We questioned him freely, and all that he
said was confirmed afterwards by three of our pas-
sengers who knew all about the matter. The poor
old tub had been condemned officially in Bermuda,
and sold at auction, and, queerly enough, not as a
whole, but by piecemeal, as one may say. For in-
stance one man bought the topmasts and all the
sails, I think ; another bought an anchor ; another
such odds and ends as skylights and such things ;
and this colored man bought what was left, viz.,
the empty hulk and the stumps of the fore and main-
masts. He paid $210 for his bargain. Then he
bought three old rags, and made one do duty as a
spencer on the mainmast, another as a jib, and a
third as a sort of flying jib, or jib-staysail, which-
ever you may please to call it. These had become
rags indeed when we saw them, and practically ap-
propriate to the wandering, food-soliciting ocean
tramp, which the poor old outcast had been all
these months that have since dragged by. One of
our passengers said that the new owner of this sol-
emn property was offered a sufficiency of ballast for
his purposes for $25, but he was not able to afford
it, and so went to sea in all his perilous emptiness.
His idea was to take the craft to New York, and
sell her at a profit, either as a coaster or to be
broken up."
[Having made enquiry of those likely to know
we have been informed that the Jonas Smith even-
tually reached New York where she was refitted,
and went to Boston where she took in a cargo for
Savannah. Her crew were all ,colored- men and
must have been ignorant of navigation as they could
not find their port of destination. She was fre-
quently spoken by different vessels, and they began
to think that she was a piratical craft. She was
ultimately towed into Doby, Georgia, by their
Steamer Dictator on 24th of last month and is now
under libel for salvage.]-Ed. B. R. G.

THE AMERICAN MAIL AND EXPORT JOURNAL, of
New York, is similar in style and inobject, to the.
"Export Mercantile Advertiser" of London, but
which it surpasses in type, in presswork, in rich
illustrations, and indeed in general information.
The Mail is quite a new monthly publication, the
latest Number now before us, the 5th, is dated Oc-
tober 1. The Mail is intended as a medium of
communication between American manufacturers
and exporters and foreign traders. It aims at be-
coming the Mail" between each country or city
in publishing the principal events occurring in each,
including items on products, mines, machinery,
wines, &c. It is published and posted to all parts
of the world at the low rate of ten shillings and
sixpence per annum.
Copies of the AMERICAN MAIL and the London
EXPORT MERCANTILE ADVERTISER can be seen at
our Stationery Store.

We are pleased to see that Professor Lazarus is still
here, but notice with regret that he has limited his
time of receiving visitors to 3 days of this week. It
Sis not often we get a skilled occulist amongst us,
Sand his invention, which we noticed in our last issue,
places him in the front rank of his profession. We
repeat, it will be well for those rewho are in any way
suffering from diseases of the nerves or loss of sight,
to call and see him.

A JUDox DYING ON THE BENCH.-At about six
o'clock on Thursday evening, says the Atlanta
Constitution, while the Superior Court was in Ses.
sion in Knoxville, Crawford county, Judge Barnard
Hill, the presiding judge, died on the bench. A
criminal trial had just been concluded, and the
jury had returned a verdict of guilty. They neg-
lected to give the value of the goods stolen, and
Judge Hill told them that they had best retire and
supply this parf of the verdict. They went out and
soon afterward an Attorney looked up and saw
Judge Hill's head thrown back on his chair, a
deathly pallor overspreading his countenance.
Friends rushed to him, but, with an easy gasp, his
spirit passed away, and he sat dead on the bench.
JUDGE SANDS CONFESSING ANDMRESIGNING-Vance.
burg, Ky., Oct. 4.-Our Criminal Court was opened
by Judge Sands, but no business was transacted
because the Judge did not sustain his judicial and
personal dignity. There was much bad feeling
manifested at one-time toward this young and gift-
ed Judge, until he came into court and said: Gen.
tlemen and fellow-citizens, I appear before you to
say I am a victim to a vice which has disgraced me
before you and my country. As I entered this
court room I heard some one say: There goes
pretty timber to make a Criminal Judge of.'. I feel
that remark as steel through my heart, for it is just.
I am unworthy of the high honor and trust you
have conferred on one so young, and I-return to
you the office I have lost, being unworthy of it.
Pardon me, friends and countrymen, but you shall
bear this no longer. My judicial integrity, and
official acts are blameless. Thank GOD, I am no
longer Criminal Judge of Lewis county. May
-heaven keep me in my affliction."-Cincinnati Ga.
zsette.

A RAPID JOURNEY ROUND THE WORLD.--Dr.
Hass, American Consul at Jerusalem, writes:-
"Not counting the time I lay over at different
points, as these breaks in the journey could all have
been avoided, I made the entire circuit of the globe
in exactly 68 days, and but for heavy weather on
the Pacific, would have made it in 62 days. The
journey from Alexandria, Egypt, -via Brindisi and
Paris to London, and thence to New York and
San Francisco, was accomplished in 20 days, and
we were just the same number of days going from
San Francisco to Yokohama, Japan. 'Crossing
over from here to Canton, in China, took six days.
A sail of ten days over the China Sea and through
the Straits of Mallacca, touching at several points
we have not time to notice, brought us to Ceylon,
of the southern coast ofHindoostad, and one of the
richest of the East India Islands. Thence we sailed
directly to Suez, in Egypt, which took 12 days, and
thence in a few hours, by rail, to Alexandria, our
starting point, making the entire distance of 25,000
-16,000 by water and 9,000 on land-in 68 days,
Without any accident or detention of any kind."

ARRIVALS AT NEW YORK AQUARIUM for week end.
ing Sept. 26.-FROM BERMUDA-One octopus, one
sand shark, eighteen angel fishes, two Spanish hog
fishes, three parat fishes, two unusually large por.
cupine fishes, twelve red squirrel fishes, six gray
snappers, one green maray or sea serpent, three
surgeon fishes, and about one hundred other smaller
ones. The octopus, sand shark, and two immense
cat fishes, over 200 lbs. weight, have since died.

John Gibson, a writer to the Signet, died at Edin-
burgh a couple of weeks ago at the age of eighty-
one. He was Sir Walter Scott's law agent, 'and
published a notable volume of "Reminiscences" of
his illustrious client.
Suleiman Pasha is a man of determination. He
told the surgeons of the English. ambulance corps
that had they not been able to take care of his


wounded he would,have been. compelled to shot.
all who were too severely injured to take care of
themselves.


Two matches which have been recently played be-
tween the Smit4' Athletic Cricket Club" and the
"Bermuda Rowing and Cricket Club" resulting in a
victory for each, it was decided to play a third game to
determine who should be entitled to the palm, and the
two elevens met on the ground of the Smith's Club on
Friday last. The day was a charming one for crick-
eting purposes and a large number of spectators, be-
longing chiefly to the fair sex, testified to the local in-
terest felt in the result of the match. The A. C. C.
winning the toss elected to go in, but were quickly dis-
posed of, owing chiefly to the efficient bowling of W.
Masters, the total number scored being only 17. The
B. R. and C. C. succeeded in putting together a score
of 57 of which W. Masters contributed 17 and R. Gray
10. An adjournment was then made for lunch, and
soon after 2 o'clock the A. C. C. commenced their se-
cond innings, and managed to make a total of 43, thus
leaving the B. R. & C. C. only 4 runs behindliand
which they succeeded in obtaining for the loss of one
wicket. The match was played in a field belonging to
Mrs. Vickers. The pitch was fairly good, but the out
fielding was rendered very difficult by the hilly nature
of the ground and the numerous trees many of which
were not more than ten or fifteen yards from the wick-
ets and constantly stopped the ball. However we un-
derstand that the game was a very pleasant one, and
doubtless the two Clubs will be happy to meet each
other in friendly contest next season. The following

SOUTH AFBIcA.-The Act for the union under one
Government of such of the South African Colonies
and States as may agree thereto, and for the Gov-
ernment of such union, which was "obstructed"
in the late Session, and led to a night and day
sitting of the House of Commons, contains 61 sec-
tions. The preamble recites that proposals have
been made for uniting tinder one Government,
under the Crown of the United Kingdom of Great
Britain and Ireland, those Colonies and States of
South Africa which may voluntarily elect to enter
into such union. 'The general principles on which
the constitution -of the legislative authority and of
the Executive-Government in the Union are to be
established are declared, and the wishes and opin-
ions of the Colonies as to details are to be represent-
ed to Her Majesty through their respective Legisla-
tures. The various sections set forth the declara-
tion and nature of any union of two or more of the
Colonies with provisions for its completion, and
Her Majesty by an Order in Council is to declare
the day on which the union shall take effect. The
Union is to be divided into such provinces, with
sucl names and boundaries as the Queen may di-
recf. The Executive Government is to be vested in
Her Majesty, and to be exercised by the Governor-
General. There is to be a Privy Council of the
union. The "Union Parliament," will consist of
an Upper House to be styled 11 the Legislative
Council," and a House of Representatives to be
called "< the House of Assembly," and their respec-
tive powers, are set forth in the Act.

There was at Dieppe,'in France, at last accounts
an old three-masted vessel called the Petrus, built
800 years ago. The stern is elevated, and the bows
are rounder than those of the present day. She is
staunch, and still in service. She was built in
Norway, and has always been employed in the Bal-
tic and North Sea trades.

Fertilizer
Somers


for Potatoes.
Island Brand."


THIS concentrated manure is prepared ex-
pressly for Potatoes, to be used in place
of Stable or Barnyard manure. The results
from ,the use -of this fertilizer by vegetable
growers in all parts of the United States dur-
ming the past season, have been much larger (in
some instances 300 bushels per acre) than from
Barn Yard Manure; and the Potatoes have
been larger in size, with fewer small Potatoes,
and of finer quality, containing more starch,
causingfthem to be white and mealy when cook-
ed. The fertilizer will be found to improve the,
land, leaving it in better condition after the'
crop. With any ordinary laid, large crops of po-
tatoes can be grown with this fertilizer without
the aid of any other manure, for the reason
that it contains all the ingredients necessary.
Apply 400 to 1600 lbs per acre, or a smaller
quantity, for proportionate results. Scatter,
in the rows and cover with earth.

"Fertilizer for Onions,
Tomatoes and Green Vegetables"
Is similar to, the foregoing, with such changes'
'in the proportions of materials used as were
made necessary for the proper adaptation to6
such vegetables.
Apply in the 'same manner as with the Pota--
-toe Fertilizer. *o
Both kinds are packed in bags of 100 lbs.
each. Price 15/ per Bag Cash only.

Issue of M marriage Licenses.

Secretary's Qffice, Bermuda,
22ND OCTOBER,- 1877.
W IIEREAS much inconvenience and many
abuses have arisen from the indiscrim-
inate manner in which Marriage Licenses have
heretofore been issued to applicants without
sufficient evidence that there existed no legiti-
mate impediment to the intended Marriages,
or that the Ministers or persons to whom the
Licenses were addressed were authorized in
Law, and, if so authorized, were willing, to
solemnize such Marriages: Now THIS IS TO
GIVE NOTICE TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
that, by Command of HIS EXCELLENCY THE
GOVERNOR and Commander-in-Chief and Or-
dinary of these Islands, the following Regu-
lations will in future be observed in this Office
with respect to the issue of Marriage Licenses.


I.
No Marriage License will henceforth be
addressed to any Minister of the Christian
Religion, or other person, authorized by tAhe
Act passed in the year 1847 entitled "An Act
" to provide for the Solemnization and Regis-
" try of certain Marriages" 'or the Act to
amend the said Act passed in the year 1873, to
Solemnize Matrimony in these Islands, before
such Minister or other person shall have pro-
duced to the Colonial Secretary,' to be laid
before the Governor in Council, documentary
proofs that such Minister, or other:person, is
a person authorized, under the said Acts,: or
one of them, to Solemnize Matrimohy under
License, and the Governor in Council shall
have granted a Certificate to that effect, and
such Certificate shall have been filed in 'the
Secretary's Office.

Every applicant for a License will be re-
quired to produce to the Colonial Secr6tary,
in addition to any proofs now required by law,
(1). A Certificate from the Clergyman,
Minister, or person, to whom the License is
to be addressed, or from a Justice of the
Peace, or from two householders of known
character and probity, that the person or
persons giving such Certificate is or are
personally acquainted with the applicant,
and is or are aware of the intended marriage,
(specifying the names of the parties intend-
ed to be married), and that to the best of
the knowledge and belief of the person or
persons giving such Certificate there exists
no lawful impedimefit to such marriage.
(2). The consent in writing of, and
signed by, the person or persons whose con-
sent is, by the seventh section of the said
Act of 1847, required to be first obtained,
in every case -in which either of the parties
to the intended marriage, not being a widow
or widower, shall be under the age of twen-
ty-one years.
(3). In every case in which the intended
mLarmiag.c is not intended to be solemnized
by the Rector of the Parish in which the
same is to be solemnized, or the duly ap-
pointed Officiating Minister of such Parish,
satisfactory proof that the Clergyman, Min-
ister, or other person, to whonmthe License
is to be addressed, is willing to solemnize
the intended marriage.
By His Excellency's Command,

I Colonial Secretary.

RIGOLLOT'S
MUSTARD PAPEiR
FOR SINAPISMS OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals of Paris, Field
and Military Hospital, by the
English Royal Navy and
the French National
Navy, &c.
To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few
moments a decided result with the smallest possible
quantity of the remedy, are the problems which M.
Rigollot has solved in the most conclusive and sa.
tisfactory manner. Rigollot's Sinapism in leaves
will, therefore, be found in every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer-
gency renders it an invaluable remedy for various
disorders.
(Signed) A. BOUCHARDAT,
Annuairethdrapentique ann6e 1868, p. 204.
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
t 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-
I.wing 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.

Ill IS WATER is of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
I Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. lHoLTz's Hair Dye has not the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to the hair an unnaturally vulgar color.
Guided by his medical knowledge and his
great chemical experiences, DR. HOLTZ has
succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give
the richest balsamic dyeing and ;curative essen-
ces, and it is by this study that he succeeded to
compound a dye which may be styled as the
Regenerator by excellence of the chevelare.
