THEATRICALS AT PROSPECT.

A drama of powerful interest is now on the
boards at the Theatre Royal. Aurora Floyd" by
C. H. Hazlewood, is, or ought to be well known to
the theatrical public, and possesses all of the sub-
tlety of style and phase of character necessary to
ensure its being ever fresh and young. The plot
hinges on that old, old story-the too warm suscep-
tibility of gushing womanhood; which in this in-
stance was craftily taken advantage of by design-
ing man, and evoked a sea of trouble as a natural
consequence of the rash and misguided act and the
marriage of Aurora Floyd" the heroine, (and a
highly accomplished young lady), with James Con-
yers, a servitor of her father's household. The
vicious mode of life pursued by the said James
Conyers ere long alienated the affections of the con-
fiding Aurora, and ended somewhat abruptly in the
young lady returning for protection to her parent,
and the rascally husband, disappearing amid the
vortex in which he was plunged, not to appear
again for a considerable period-long enough to
lure the heroine and her friends into the belief that
he had perished in the course of his mad career, and
quite long enough for her to win the affections of
a "squire of high degree," to return the same with
equal ardour, and dreading the publicity of her
early error, which had taught her now to discern
and value the genuine love of John Mellish, a man
of honor and sound nature, that she rather prefer-
red the concealment of her crime than run the
chance of losing her lover, and thereby entail that
lasting misery experienced only by those who make
a fatal error of the heart, and then find the barrier
they thus create to be atoned for-never more! She
enters unshriven into the marriage state, and by her
boundless devotion is making a good man happy,
when her former husband appears unexpectedly on
the scene, explodes her peace of mind, and conjures
up the sea of troubles." All this is depicted in
the most moving and graphic manner, and the
grouping of character is splendidly achieved-the
most minute details thereof evincing careful study
and far-reaching perspicuity.
It need scarcely be pointed out that full justice
can scarcely be given a piece of such complicated
greatness by an amateur club, and to assume the
ro1e of the leading characters is an undertaking
which demands a niceness of perception and a
knowledge of human nature which may not begar-
nered in a moment, nor can it be acquired by the
many. To say that the performance on the whole
was deserving of high praise, would not be justice;
but yet as an amateur performance of a high class
drama, it was very creditable, and there was a
something in it which did not fail to sustain atten-
lion and deserve applause. The character of the
"Softy" (supposed to be a half-witted harmless
rustic, but in reality crafty, cunning and revenge-
ful), was excellently depicted by F. Dixon, and just
because it was so well done, just so it was that his
low, cunning craftiness, and brutal ignorance, re-
quired an equal strength, or rather an over-matching
strength, in the depicting of injured innocence and
moral worth. Such depravity and riotousness in
wrong-doing was enough to create a loathing of
the genus homo, sufficient even to induce a lover of
moral order to invade the sacred precincts of the


stage, and there and then inflict a summary chas-
tisement on the delineator of the character. The
higher efforts were nevertheless lacking in the
counter charm, and it was only too apparent that
the deeper feelings of the actors found but little
utterance or display, although the opportunities
were many and forcible. This is to be regretted,
but still the fault is not peculiar to the club now
engaged, but is general more or less in all amateurs.
The farces are amusing enough, but adopted ap-
parently on the idea that "a good tale is nothing
.the worse being twice told." Something new would
be more agreeable, and we trust the hint will not
be lost sight of.
The attendance on the nights of the performance
was very good, and as to-night is the last time, we
would advise our readers to patronize them, as we
think a couple of hours will be well and pleasantly
spent iu witnessing such a drama.
The scenery is cleverly arranged, and deserving
of praise; and the manner in which the orchestra
lends agreeable assistance sustains the good opin-
ion we have always hed of the band of the 46th
Regiment.

LOSS OF THE 1ST OFFICER OF THE CA-
NIMA."
During the gale on Saturday last, the 27th inst.
consequent on some adjustment to the steering
gear being required, Captain Liddicoat and Chief
Officer Whitter, with three of the crew, were aft
giving their close attention to the required work.
A heavy sea broke over the stern and carried away
the flagstaff which swept the Chief Officer with it.
Captain Liddicoat immediately went to the bell and
stopped the ship, while Purser Gale, who was near,
attempted to help Mr. Hitter by using the tow
line," having first thrown a life buoy quite near to
him. Mr. W. attempted to hold the tow line but
apparently giving this up he was seen within six
feet or thereabouts of the life buoy, when a large
wave swept between him and the vessel, removing
him from the anxious gaze of the party on board,
forever.
The deceased Officer has long been known in
Bermuda as an energetic master mariner; acting
for many years in that capacity in sailing vessels
owned here, and joined the Canima" in January
1874, serving as Chief Officer of the vessel, enjoying
the high regard of the Company and the Captain
of the ship, occasionally, and in the most able way,
taking charge of the vessel for several consecutive
trips during the absence of the latter; for which
service and for his genuine worth the Manager of
the Company had, just prior to his leaving New
York, intimated to him that the command of one of
the Vessels soon to be engaged in a trade with
Venezuela, would be given him. He has met a sai-
lor's death, leaving a good name, and in the midst
of merited commendations.

THE WAR IN TURKEY.
The Russians have at last won a decisive victory.
On the 15th October they routed Moukhtir's army
and sent it reeling into Kars for shelter. The bat-
tles of the first days of the month must have been
more disastrous to the Turks than they admitted.
The Russians could not have lost as many, nor the
Turks as few, men, as the latter claimed. The con-
traction of Moukhtir's lines could not have been al-
together the measure of prudence and choice he an-
nounced it to be; and it was known that he had
suffered one very great reverse in the loss of Fazli
Pasha, his chief of staff and right hand man, who
is said to deserve all the glory Moukhtir has gained,
and who was disabled by wounds early in the
month. The Russians soon proved that they were
not discomfited, and on the 15th they attacked their
enemy with great effect. They handled so severely
two of the three divisions of Mukhtir's army under
the immediate command of that General, that they
made a disorderly retreat to Kars pursued by the
Russians. The third division being unsupported
was captured after a short fight, and the capture
included seven Generals and forty guns. The num-
bers engaged were 70,000 Russians and 40,000
Turks, and of the latter fifteen to twenty thousand
were taken prisoners. Mukhtir lost more than half
of his army, but had the good fortune to get into
Kars with what was left of it. The Russians are
again investing that city. They have men for the
work and enough to spare to march on Erzeroum.
They have just got back to where they were in the
Spring and early summer, and all the successes of
the Turks against them go for nothing. If they do
not continue their march to Erzeroum, it is because
the season is too late. Mukhtir is said to have
taken positions which will arrest the Russian ad-
vance, and all the troops that can be spared him are
being sent forward. The command of Ishmail
Pasha which was supporting him has been put in
peril, the Russians having some chance of getting
between it and Mukhtir, and they now have the
help of detachments of their own, which until the
late victory had been held in check by the Turks.
The future results of this victory are subject to all
the chances and changes of war, and can scarcely
be predicted, but it must be said that in this defeat
of one of the main armies of the Sultan, the Rus-
sians have scored a great advantage.
Suleiman has also fallen back from his advanced
positions, and the Czarewitch who fronts him has
been pushing forward his scouting parties. The
reason assigned for Suleiman's change of his lines
is that the roads are so muddy and mired
as to be nearly impassable, and that it is absolutely
necessary for the Turks to be nearer their base of
supplies. It is reported that the Russians, if they
cannot take Plevna, must fall back also, and for
the same reason, that it is so difficult as to be
nearly impracticable to transport supplies to their
present positions which are surrounded by leagues
and miles of deep mud. Both sides keep their
plans so quiet that it is only when battles are lost
or won the manoeuvres which lead up to them are
made known. There has been an attack by the
Roumanians on the second Grivica redoubt, which
as before they took but afterward had to give up.
The attack was not in force and was supposed to be
a faint collateral to some chief movements made or
about to be made. The newspaper correspond-
ents, as far as they were allowed to say anything,
seemed to expect another attack at Plevna, and the
preparations there, as well as the demonstrations
against Suliman, would indicate that the Rus-


sians had not given up all hopes and were not
ready te settle down for the winter. If they have
Plevna, it is believed they would not have to fall
back, and the advantages in every respect of getting
the better of what seems their fate in that quarter,
may induce them to make another effort against Os-
man. There was a bit of a panic at Constantinople
when Mukhtir's defeat was heard of, and if the
Russians could obtain another equal advantage, the
diplomats who are watching for a chance to ar-
range a peace would become busy again. The
Turks are reported to have renewed their attack at
Shipka, and the Emperor of Russia has announced
his intention to spend the winter with his troops,
and to be on the spot to see to their comfort and
protection,

A TOWN CLOCK.-We are much pleased to no-
tice by the proceedings of the Honorable House of
Assembly yesterday, that the information so prompt-
ly afforded to the House by His Excellency the
Governor-on the application of that Body-in re-
ference to the site, cost of tower, and suitable
clock, has been quickly acted on, and a Resolve,
granting the sum of 1500 for the purpose, was
unanimously agreed to. We hope therefore soon, to
see what has long been wanted in our Town-a
Public Time Piece.

WAR OFFICE, Oct. 2.-Colonel Sir R. M. Laffan,
R, E., K.C.M.G. to be Major General.
H. M. Troopship Simoom does not go to Jamaica,
unless ordered to do so after her arrival at Bermuda.
We find by the Army and Navy Gazette of the 13th
instant, that the formation of the new Pay Department
for the Army has met with a suspension, and if we may
form an opinion from the article in our contempory, any
material change is unnecessary and uncalled for, at
least so far as regards the administrative powers of the
Staff Paymasters. Some few minor changes might
prove beneficial, but as a fact harmony can be preserved
by the exercise of common courtesy amongst those pri-
marily interested, and we believe that such has been
easily sustained in the working of the system in these
Islands,


FURTHER POSTPONEMENT OF THE SITTINGS OF THE
COURT OF GENEAL AssIZE.--It will be noticed by a
Proclamation in the Official column to-day that H is
Excellency the Governor has thought fit further to
Pastpone the Sittings of the Court of General As-
size to Monday the 12th day of November, then to
commence unless His Excellency shall otherwise
order in the meantime.

MARRIAGE IN HIGH LIFE.
VICE ADMIRAL SIR ASTLEY COOPER KEY'S WEDDING.
From the Halifax Citizen and Chronicle. October 16.
For some weeks there were rumors of an approach-
ing marriage in high life, and within the last few days
it became generally known that Vice Admiral Sir Ast-
ley Cooper Key was te be married to an English lady,
who arrived here in the last Allan steamer.
The ceremony was appointed to take place this morn-
ing at 11 o'clock in the Bishop's Chapel, Robie Street.
Doubtless the place was chosen with a view to ensuring
a certain degree of privacy. But the public of Halifax
-female public especially-is only human. Like every
other public it has a strong curiosity, on occasions like
the one under notice, to know just what everybody wore
and how everybody looked. So the public determined
the ceremony should not be private. And it wasn't.
At least half an hour before 11 o'clock the street in
front of the Chapel was one solid mass of femininity,
struggling and pushing to get to the front to be ready
for a rush when the doors opened. The friends of the
bride and bridegroom were admitted, by ticket, through
the Vestry door, and occupied the front seat. The
pretty little chapel was simply and tastefully decorated
with flowers, ferns, vines and fancy straw work, which
has of late years been so largely and advantageously
used in church decoration, the principal decoration be-
ing in the chancel. Back of the altar was hung ma-
roon drapery trimmed with black and straw work.
Over the altar was a cross of white flowers and two sil-
ver vases filled with flowers on either side. The gas
branches and standards were entwined with vines, ferns
and flowers. The altar and choir rails were ornament-
ed with bouquets of flowers, ferns, etc. Over the win-
dow in the chancel was placed the holy monogram and
cross worked in straw. The nave was roped off to
keep it clear for the passage of the bridal party.
Shortly before their arrival a large number of officers of
the Navy entered and lined the centre aisle. Each one
wore a sprig of spruce in his button-hole. About 11.30
the doors were opened and for a few minutes there was
a rush before which it seemed that gas, standards,
benches, and everything loose would be carried away.
The little chapel was quickly filled and there still re-
mained outside enough to fill it twice over. The noise,
crushing and struggling were for a short time indescrib-
able, the crowd being composed almost entirely of the
fair sex, who, as everybody knows, makes the most un-
manageable of crowds. The efforts of his Lordship
the Bishop to restore something like order were at last
partially successful. Soon another buzz of excitement
announced that something was going on near the door
and then the bridal party entered and passed up the
nave to the altar. The party consisted of the bride and
groom, four bridesmaids, M1iiss Binney, Miss M. Key,
Miss M. Archibald and Miss Rose Key, and the grooms-
men-Lts. Hamill, Savile, De Crespigney and Cham-
berlayne.
The Bishop requested silence and the ceremony be-
gan. His Lordship officiated, assisted by Rev. Mr.
Morton, Naval Chaplain. The bride was given away
by her father. The service was a full choral one. The
choir, in white surplices, was supplemented by ten boys
from the Admiral's ship, dressed in blue pants and
white sailor jackets. Prof. Porter, Organist of St.
Paul's, directed the music. After the close of the cere-
monies the choir sang the 398th hymn, commencing-
Christ the King of human life.
In Royal bounty pour
On these Thy servants, man and wife,
Thy blessings evermore,"
and the Bishop pronounced the benediction. The hap-
py couple then left the chapel, entered their carriage,
and drove off. The bridal party followed, and the au-
dience dispersed, many, however, remaining a little
while to examine and admire the chancel decorations.
The bride and groom left for Truro, where they will
spend their honeymoon, Lieut. Governor Archibald
having placed his residence there at their disposal.
The bride is, or was, Miss B3artolucci, an English
lady. She first arrived here about a year ago and pro-
ceeded to Bermuda to join some friends. While there
she met the gallant Admiral who had been a widower
for some years.
The flagship Bellerophon was gaily decorated with
flags and wreaths on trucks and yards ; an immense
wreath was hung between the fore and mainmasts.
The other ships of war, Encounter and Argus, were al-
so handsomely decorated with wreaths and bunting.

NEW YORK, 16th Octr.-The Paris correspondent
of the London Times telegraphs, that at midnight
the result of the general elections was as follows :-
325 Republicans, 191 Conservatives.
In 12 circonscriptions no majority having been
obtained fresh ballots will be required. The Re-
publican journals demand the resignation of the
Ministry. On the other hand the Conservatives


retort that the Republicans have been defeated,
boasting that 400 of their candidates have been
returned, and that by the elections, the President's
policy has won 40 supporters, and may, possibly
win 10 more. The moderate of both parties suggest
mutual concessions.
In England the Penge murderers, have been

THE VERY LATEST
LONDON, Oct. 25-Several accounts concur in
stating that the Turks have commenced a vigorous
bombardment against the Russian positions in the
Schipka Pass, and have already silenced one Rus-
sian battery.
The Times' correspondent at Rasgrad states that
the Egyptians before their removal to Verna suff-
ered dreadfully, 300 or 400 going into hospital daily
with dysentery."
The Times' Vienna correspondent telegraphs as
follows: According to news from the best sources
at Constantinople the Grand Vizier cannot agree
with Mahmond Damad Pasha on the question of
an armistice. The Damad has urged an armistice
with all his influence. The Grand Vizier recently
tendered his resignation but afterwards withdrew
it."
The Berlin correspondent of the Times says : "It
asserted that Prince Gortschakoff, in a communi-
cation to the Russian Ambassador here, has em-
phasized the determination of the Czar to continue
the war until the condition of the Christians of
Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Bulgaria is finally and
definitely improved."
LONDON, Oct. 25.-A despatch from Erzeroum
says : The Russians have been repulsed in an at.
tack on Fort Thames. A renewal of the attack
was expected. A despatch from Constantinople
says Mokhtar Pasha telegraphs that be is hopeful
of retrieving his former position.
A dispatch from Giurgevo says the bombardment
I of Rutchuk continues.
Suleiman Pasha is about to send Col. Valentine
Baker and other English officers back to Constan-

WAR IN AFRICA.
LONDON, Oct. 22.-Advices from Cape Town,
Oct. 2, by way of Madeira, state that a war has
commenced in Transkei between the Galekas and
British and their native allies. Fighting occurred
on September 24 and 29 at South Mapassa and
Ibeka. The Galekas to the number of eight
thousand attacked the British, but were repulsed
with a loss of two hundred on Sep. 24. Their loss
on Sep. 29 is unknown. The British loss was one
man killed and six wounded. Reinforcements
have been dispatched from Simon's Bay, and vol-
unteers are being enrolled throughout the colony,
A CABINET OF CONCILIATION FOR FRANCE.
LONDON, Oct. 23.-The Times's' Paris corres-
pondent says an article, published in the Courrier
de France,' suggesting the immediate formation
of a Cabinet of Conciliation, has attracted much
attention. It is supposed to have been inspired by
M. Jules Grevy and other Republican leaders.

THE KEELT MOTOR.
Of late nothing has been heard of the Keely Mo-
tor, and we had begun to suppose that it was only a
hoax. That is not Mr. Keely's account of the mat-
ter. He says he has just completed his machine;
and by way of showing the reality of the invention
it is stated that of the original Company who raised
the 24,000 already expended upon this invention
only three or four shareholders have withdrawn.
In a month or two, says, Mr. Keely, his machine
will be open to the inspection of all the world. Mean-
while he gives us this amount of information about
it. His machine weighs 20 tons, has been two
years in construction, and has cost 12,000. The
Anglo American Times describes it as a globe of cast
steel, four feet in diameter on the outside, with a
diameter inside of nine inches. The difficulty has
been to get material capable of withstanding the
enormous pressure of the vapour; but Mr. Keely is
now testing its strength before he applies the power
to large engines. He has registered a pressure of
11,5001bs. to the square inch. The condensing
apparatus, into which the vapour is discharged, is a
cylinder that holds three gallons of water. When
the water that had been used had been recondensed,
it was apparently pure, and free from any foreign
taste, such as would be imparted by explosive pow-
ders, while the vapour when discharged into the face,
was felt to be cold and dry. Mr. Keely speaks of it
as a new force unknown to science, not invented by
him, but discovered by accident. He could work
the machine up to 10,000 horse power if the metal
would hold, and he intends to work it immediately
on a 200 horse power engine. With the condenser
now nearly completed, Mr. Keely will make a quart
of water produce a thousand horse power motion of
sufficient duration to run a steamship across the
ocean. If all this be true, then Mr. Keely will have
beaten Mr. Bell; the new motor will be more mar-
vellous than the telephone.-" Dominican" English
News Letter.

AMONG THE ANIMALS received at Central Park N


Y. Menagerie for the week ending Sept. 29, 1877,
was a SPRINO BUCK (Gazella euchore), which is thus
described. This animal derives its names from the
extraordinary perpendicular leaps which it makes
when alarmed, reaching to the height of ten or
twelve feet, and clearing fifteen feet of ground at
each spring. It stands about two feet eight inches
at the shoulder, and is about four feet long. Gene-
ral color, cinnamon brown, with face, croup, inside
?f legs, tail and belly white, separated from the
brown by a well defined band of venous red along
flanks; a chestnut streak from the horns to the
nose; horns lyrate, with tips turned inward; end
of tail with a tuft of black hair posteriorly directed.
From the loins to the root of tail, are two folds of
skin, running parallel to each other, lined with fine
white hair. These folds open when the animal
leaps, thus exposing the white croup and producing
a very beautiful effect. It is a native of South Af-
rica, and goes in immense herds, migrating during
seasons of excessive droughts, so that they have
been compared to swarms of locusts. Mr. Pringle,
an English traveller in that country, says that he
once passed through one of these migratory hordes,
and he estimated the number at one time in view at
not less than 20,000.

One of the periodic terrors to celebrities in Great
Britain is the annual election to the Lord Rector-
ship of the Scotch Universities. Oxford, Cam-
bridge and Dublin are content to elect a Chancellor
for life, and very good men they choose, too-Ox-
ford having Lord Salisbury and Cambridge the
Duke of Devonshire-no mere lord, but a high
wrangler a savant of the first rank; and Dublin a
most distinguished lawyer. In Scotland, however,
they want a fresh man every year, that the victim
may come down and deliver a speech of two hours
on Scotland, her intellectual and moral greatness
generally; and Burns and Walter Scott in particu-
lar ; but the world is getting rather tired of these
scrapings on the Scotch fiddle, and first rate cele-
brities show no ardor for the honor of the Lord
Rectorship.


SUBSIDY FOR THE NEW YORK MAIL STEAMER.-It
was finally decided in the House of Assembly on
Friday last, that 2000 per annum should be grant-
ed for subsidizing a steamer for Mail and other
purposes between these Islands and New York.
The introducer of the Bill moved as an
amendment on Friday, that the grant be 3000,
but that, with other amounts, 2500 and
1000, were severally proposed and lost that for
2000, which was carried by a majority of only
one on the previous day of meeting, is therefore the
amount to be appropriated for this service. We
hope the recent contractors, who have done the
work faithfully and satisfactorily, will be induced
to tender again for the service though the amount
of compensation is low.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-Since the people of this country have
turned their attention to agriculture the mud from
harbours and ponds has been greatly used with be-
nefit as a Fertilizer.
Attention has lately been called to one of the
Local Boards of Health complaining of the manner
in which it is removed. Experience has proved that
the removal of this article is neither injurious to
the public health nor in any way a nuisance. It
has been generally removed in the hottest season
without injury to the parties employed. The com-
position is principally of sand washed from the
banks or roads without decomposed vegetable mat-
ter.
It is to be hoped that the highest authorities will
entertain the question and have it settled.
Yours, PAGET.

ALEXANDER S. BEAN, of a SON.

DIED, at Acadia Cottage, Pembroke Parish, on Fria
day morning, the 26th inst., after a lingering illness
which ended in total paralysis, FRANCES, the beloved
wife of Mr. Samuel Parker, aged 43 years ; leaving a
husband and family to mourn the loss of a kind wife,
and affectionate mother. She died in the full triumph
of a glorious resurrection.-Com.
Drowned at Sea from on board the Mail steamer
Canima, on passage from New York on Saturday last,
MR. WILLIAM E. WHITTER, first officer of that vessel,
a native of Permuda, in the 51st year of his age. (Some
particulars of the sad fate of the deceased will be found
in another column.) Mr. Whitter leaves a wife, three
sons and four sisters to mourn his sad end. Few men
in Bermuda were more respected than the deceased.
He was one of our most experienced mariners, and the
very responsible position he held on board the Canima
was a proof of the great confidence which the Owners of
that vessel and her Agents here had of his ability,
steadiness and integrity, having known him for
many years. His melancholy end is regretted by all
classes in this community.

THE LEAP OF LIFE.-There's a certain curious
member of the plant family, very common in Ja-
maica, I am informed, called the life plant, or leaf
of life, because it is almost impossible to kill the
leaves. You may cut one off, and hang it up by a
thread, where any ordinary leaf would be discour-
aged and dry up. It will send out long, white,
thread-like roots, and set about growing new leaves.
You may cut off half a leaf and throw into a tight
box, where it can get neither light nor moisture
(necessaries of life to other plants,) the spirited lit-
tle leaf puts out its delicate roots all the same.
Even pressed, and packed away in a botanist's her-
barium-the very dryest and dullest place you ever
did see-it will keep up its work, throw out roots
and new leaves, aid actually grow out of its covers.
I'm told that botanists who want to dry this perti.
nacious vegetable are obliged to kill it with a hot
iron or with boiling water.-St. Nicholas Mag.
The Leaf or Life Plant is very common in Ber.
muda.

Fertilizer for Potatoes.
Somers Island Brand."
HIS concentrated manure is prepared ex-
S 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-
ing 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,
causing them 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 ordinaryland, 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 600 lbs. per acre, or a smaller
quantity, for proportionate results. Scatter
in the rows and cover with earth.

SFertilizer 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 to
such vegetables.
Apply in the same manner as with the Pota-
toe Fertilizer.
Both kinds are packed in bags of 100 lbs.
each. Price 15/ per Bag Cash only.

Abstract of the Proceedings of the Honorable
House of Assembly.
Wednesday, 24th October.-A Message from His
Excellency the Governor :-
(No. 14.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Brigadier-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon.
orable House of Assembly that he has been in.
structed by the Right Honorable the Secretary o
State for the Colonies to bring once more under
the consideration of the Legislature the distressing
case of Mrs. Keon, the widow of the late Colonia
Secretary of these Islands, in the hope that the
Legislature will be pleased to grant some pecuni.
ary assistance to relieve that poor lady's great dis.
tress.
The Governor is informed that Mrs. Keon has
been left entirely destitute and in submitting het
case to the consideration of the Legislature he de-
sires to point out that it is hardly consistent witi
the generous and liberal spirit which the Legisla.
ture of these Islands has so frequently shewn in
dealing with the claims of Public servants to refuse(
all assistance to this poor lady whose husband filled
for 16 years the most important and conspicuous
office under the Government of this Colony, and
who now, in addition to the irreparable loss o:
her husband, is-the Governor is informed-left
wholly deprived of the means of support.
The Governor is unable to speak from any per-.
sonal knowledge of the official services of the lat
Colonial Secretary, but it is well known that he ha
left behind him a reputation of having been a mar
of great intellectual ability, of cultivated taste, and
of a kindly and generous disposition-and it i,
known to every Member of the Legislature that h
spent a large portion of the best years of his life ir
the service of this Colony.
The Governor trusts that in these circumstances
and in others which will be better known to th
Legislature than they can be to him, the Honorabl
House of Assembly will find considerations amplj
sufficient to justify a favorable response to Mrs
Keon's appeal to its sympathy and liberality.

ding a Public Clock be recommitted for genera

lency should inquire into the subject and take early

which was agreed to.

TOWN HALL, ST. GEOIGE'S.
An Entertainment was given in the above Hall
for the benefit of the Parish Church St. George's on
Wednesday and Thursday last, the 17th and 18th
Instant, when our old friends Corpls. C. Pollard
and D. Gordon, R.E., assisted by a local array of
talent appeared much to the delight of the audien-
ces there assembled, and we must certainly compli-
ment both performers with this and their previous
endeavours to please the E:"-.:'i:.",i public. Cor-
poral Pollard, in his inimitable feminine impersona-
tion was all that could have possibly been wished
for, and we are happy to say their endeavours were
a very great success. We believe the same enter-
tainment will be repeated in the Theatre Prospect
on the 7th and 8th November for the same charit-
able purpose, when we wish them that success which
they so justly deserve.


October 22, 1877.

CRUELTIE
From the N


AN ARDENT ADMIRER.

!S OF THE WAR.
'ews of the World.


It cannot now be denied that hideous atrocities
are perpetrated by Russians as well as by Turks in
e the sanguinary war which is being carried on for the
I avowed protection of the Christian religion. Ex-
s planations that are freely offered do not soften them,
I nor keep down the indignant outcries of a civilised
f humanity. Despatches from Eski Saglra are of a
t horrible character respecting what was done by the
Russians whilst in possession of that place. The
military authorities brought out day by day a hundred
e of the Mussulman population and put them to death.
s Thus during the eleven days of occupation eleven
hundred were barbarously slaughtered. "Besides
this every woman and grown girl of the Mussulman
s faith was outraged with unspeakable brutality," and
e this is called Christian warfare. This is the war
I which the Czar declared had the special countenance
of the Almighty. Angels must weep over such bar-
, barities and men must visit them with execration.
e There is no Christianity in these doings. They may
e not be worse than the "Turkish atrocities" of which
r we have heard so much, but they ought not to have
. occurred at all. Mr. Gladstone has not expressed
his ideas on this point. The Emperor Alexander,
in his famous speech at Moscow, declared the war
. to .be one of religion, upon which the Almighty
l looked with favour; but it has already assumed a
diabolical character; the worst deeds of the Turlks
being copied with reckless and unmitigated ferocity.
There are exaggerations, no doubt, upon both sides
and there may be as much of imagination as of real-
ity in all the accounts that reach us; but with all
f allowance there remains a sickening record of wan-
ton barbarities perpetrated upon defenceless women
and children as well as upon wounded men. The
combatants are not slow in blackening the character
of each other; but both, indisputably, are doing the
worst in that way for themselves. The Times has
a alleged that at Constantinople the manufacture of
atrocities, Turkish as well as Russian, has become a
distinct business, and that "shameful means are
taken to make all the capitals in Europe believe in
the perpetration of infamies at once frightful and
ferocious;" and stories are told, among others,, of
fictions invented for a newspaper correspondent
without his knowledge, and that his landlord was
- half coaxed, half bullied into forging his name."
Another correspondent "was base enough to promise
That he would telegraph whatever atrocities might
- be dictated by the Turkish authorities of the place
in which he was gathering information." Another,
with the connivance of officials, altered a letter for a
newspaper without the authority of the writer and,
it was only through an accident that the trick was
detected, so that in the struggle for early informa-
tion it is possible for serious mistakes to occur.
Dependence cannot be placed in all that is published ;
but there is enough of established fact before the
world to create a feeling of horror and detestation,
and to give rise to an earnest prayer for the speedy
termination of this savage warfare.
Despatches from the Austro-Hungarian Consuls
received at the Foreign Office at Vienna may be
supposed to be trustworthy, since they proceed from
unprejudiced witnesses on the spot, who had also
described the atrocities of the T.:l".' on former oc-
casions. One of these C., : i-.- seen by the
writer of a letter in the Hamburg Correspondent,
enumerated six Turkish villages which had disap-
peared from the face of the earth, the whole of the
inhabitants having been .:..i.i ..:.' by the ':. 5:,L
t i_:. -,. and their houses .. i. ... In some of those
villages, which contained ab6ut 700 inhabitants, only
six or seven escaped with their lives; the total num-
ber of persons who had perished being about 4,000,
and the houses destroyed 880. The people who were


thus massacred were nearly all women, children, old i
men, and invalids: the able-bodied men had long ago
either _c .-,.. or been .1, ,'.. .1 into the army. Such
are the issues of a war ..-. .-ly begun for the vin-
dication of the ( !.- ,. ..religion. The Turkish hos-
pitals are said to contain numbers of wounded
women and eLi.r,_u, their wounds having been in-
,flicted by lances or sabres. It is no excuse to say
that this is in retaliation for Turkish atrocities in
i-; "l.i. The i~ii:-, .. were bound to set a Chris-
tian example to TiTi-L barbarians, not show how
barbarous they could be themselves.
Dismissing what may be fiction from the reported
outrages perpetrated by the Russian troops, there
are atrocities of the worst description vouched for.
What may come only by hearsay is not reliable, but
here is a sample of the depositions of eye-witnesses,
whose veracity is not questioned. I have just had
in Shumla," says the special correspondent of the
Telegraph, the evidence of my own senses as to the
shameful deeds which some men are capable of per-
petrating upon harmless and unarmed fellow beings,"
and he describes the victims of Cossack ferocity
whom he had seen. In one room he counted 24 wo-
men and children varying in age from the baby at it's
mother's breast to the old woman of 60, not one of
whom but had been hacked with lances. Babes in
arms with wounds fearful to look upon : little children
ust able to toddle, who had evidently been wounded
by a thrust from behind while vainly endeavouring to
escape; mothers with wounds through hands and
arms received in their frantic attempts to protect
the babe they carried; girls of various ages from
five or six up to 15 or 16, with fearful injuries in
various parts of their bodies-a sad and sickening
sight;" and all this done in the name of the God of
Heaven, and professedly for the vindication of Chris-
tianity. Further testimony is given by the corres-
pondent of another of our daily contemporaries, the
!1,!',-., Post. His evidence refers to a place called
Batak, halfway between Tirnova and Sistova, where
the mufti, a personage answering to our mayor, was
assured by the Russians that they had come to shed
enlightened civilization and to protect such Mussul-
Smans as would remain quietly in their homes. The
mufti in this belief induced the people to remain;
but the Bulgarians were suddenly let loose on the
unfortunates and they were put to death by means
of various sharp and blunt instruments. The in-
furated mufti, on witnessing this, appealed in vain to
the humanity of his Russian captors, and when he
remonstrated with them for their gross breach of
faith his only answer was laughs of scorn and the re-
ply that this was revenge for the late events in Bul-
garia, after which he was himself hewn to bits with
hatchets and swords." The Russian Government
may not approve such inhuman deeds, and they may
be contrary also to the desires of the commanders ;
but the character and dispositions of men employed
iu this Christian warfare should have been known ;
and the charge of culpable ignorance at least cannot
be avoided. It is almost necessary to be upon the
spot," says the correspondent of the Post, to be
able to believe the utter misery that can be heaped
on a defenceless population. I have it, on the au-
thority of one who was present, that in one locality
a wretched man, bound to a tree, was forced to wit- I
ness the shame of his female relatives, after which he
was put to a painful death Dead bodies of women
and children, writes an eye-witness, strew the roads,
and horrors of every kind are committed. At one
spot lay dying a poor woman with her baby sucking
blood from her torn breasts, at another three girls
had been similarly mutilated, and three boys were
ripped open, with there bowels protruding from
their stomachs. The Moslem woman and children
are ruthlessly slaughtered, after being violated and
terribly maltreated, and upwards of 5,000 are already
estimated to have thus perishe !." Are such horrors
as these still to characterise the war for the security
of the Christian religion in Bulgaria? On the Rus-
sian side it is said the perpetrators of Bulgarian at-
rocities have not been punished. But reprisals in
the same way are not justifiable on Christian grounds
which are the grounds whereon this war was begun.
The Russians are not Turks. The Times, which
takes a mild view of the new atrocities, acknowled-
ges that the brunt of this brutal war is really fall-
ing on the rural population, and chiefly on the wo- I
men," and says the Turkish population have a
double cause for dread-reprisals and vengence from
the Bulgarians, whofrom what we hear;of their doings
north of the Balkans, are not likely to be very
agreeable guests on this side." Merciful Powers,
what is it this writer is thinking about? A
convivial party? Invited guests? "Two Mus- I
sulman women," says a Standard telegram,
"have arrived at Tirnova with their fingers cut
off who have been ignominiously outraged." No
ghost nor Times suggestion was required to raise a
conviction that the diabolians who do such deeds
are not "agreeable guests" on this side of the Bal-
kins. How much longer are we to be sickened with
such details as these ? Are the Great Powers not
yet convinced that a combined intervention is desi-
reble for the counselling of peace ?

STANLEY'S LETTERS FROM NYANqWE.

From the New York Herald, October 10.
The two letters which we publish this morning
from Henry M. Stanley are written on subjects of
the deepest interest to the geographer and the hu-
manitarian. They treat respectively of slavery and
of Livingstone's journey in the remote interior of
the African continent at the time when fatigue and
sickness and the infirmities of the age combined to
imprison the lonely traveller within a very small
area of exploration. The horrors of the atrocious
slave trade are depicted by an eye witness of the
miseries of its victims and the terrible depopulation
of once smiling and well cultivated districts. Few
travellers have had the opportunity such as Stanley
enjoyed of recording on the very ground of explor-
ation the strange sights and incidents of travel in a
region so little known to the outside world. In.
deed, this particular district of Nyangwe may be
said to have been visited by only two explorers--
Livingstone and Stanley-for Cameron made no
excursions northward when he found his journey
down the Lualaba barred by the savages. One of
these witnesses is dead; the other now gives us the
opening chapters of the story which will enlighten
us as to a region of which nothing was previously
known. One can share Stanley's gloom when, sur-
rounded by the natives, he learned the particulars
of the last wanderings of the man he risked so much
to rescue, but who, with a heroic stubbornness, re-
fused to leave his work unfinished and died in the
effort to accomplish it. We can readily under-
stand how appropriate, then, is Stanley's suggestion
to name the Lualaba after its discover. Every ob-
ject that he gazed on inspired Stanley with sym-
pathy for the man who, knowing that his days were
numbered, ran a race with Death along the line of
discovery, which was now about to be followed with
success. So it is and ever will be. Some sow the
seed and others gather the harvest.
In his comments on the slave trade, which still
flourishes in Central Africa like a poisonous plant
that overgrows and destroys all it touches, Stanley
points to where and by whom this iniquitous traffic
is most actively maintained. In the face of out-
raged civilization great powers preserve friendly re-
lations with the authors of this cruel and devasta.
ting trade. If the only result of Stanley's journeys
was the exposure of the slave trade, which is con-
nived at by great European commercial nations, it
would be a praiseworthy achievement worthy of
the days of chivalry. But Stanley has accomplish.
ed more than this by opening to the world a terri-
tory so vast and varied in character as to tempt
enterprises that of themselves annihilate the ille-
gitimate trade in human beings. It production
attracts commerce the poorest policy that the Arabs
could adopt towards the natives would be to kill
them off, as they now do. Labor would be too
profitable to warrant an indulgence in wholesale
massacre, and one of the first results of commerce
would be the preservation of human life. With
commerce, civilization would come, and then free-
dom. It is not easy to place a limit to the advan,
tages that must arise from Stanley's success.
