A colored man named Julius Wood, a West In-
dian, accompanied by a man, named Harford, a
Bermudian, went out fishing last Wednesday in a
boat called the Alarm. Just before sunset same
afternoon the boat was seen near the North Rock.
The wind was blowing fresh at the time and con-
tinued to do so during the night. Nothing having
been seen or heard of the boat or the people since,
it is much feared that the poor fellows have met
with a watery grave unless indeed having been
blown to sea they were picked up by the Canima,
which left here on the following day for New
York, or some other vessel.

act terms on which they would agree to part with
Captain Stanley Creek submitted a plan made by
the Colonial Surveyor some short time ago, at the
request of the late Receiver General, the Hon. H.
Fowler, of a portion of the land known as the
Mount Langton Marsh, which would make a good
Race Course and promenade, while other portions of
it might be converted into grounds of public
amusement and recreation, which would be highly
desirable. He pointed out its advantages as regard-
ed central position and the additional attractions
that would accrue to these Islands as a winter re-
sort, if such a scheme were carried out; and stated
that he had been authorised by His Excellency
Major-General Sir R. M. Laffan, K.C.M.G., Gover-
nor and Commander-in-Chief, to inform the meeting
that he would be delighted to further any endea-
vors that the inhabitants might make to provide a
good Race Course, Promenade and Public Park, and
would be happy to forward to the Secretary of
State, with his strong recommendation, a request
that the Colony might be allowed to have the use of
the Marsh for the purpose above named.
A discussion ensued upon the respective plans
and several gentlemen addressed the meeting upon
the subject before them; there appeared to be a
balance of opinion in favor of the Mount Langton
Marsh scheme, owing to its holding out a promise of
being an undertaking that could be extended and
amplified by the successors of the present generation;
whilst the alternative Shelly Bay scheme appeared
somewhat vague as to the rights that could be ac-
quired over the land and did not appear to offer
anything more than an indifferent Race Course for
the future, though the prime outlay would doubt-
less be considerably less and if purchased the land
could be immediately used for the proposed purpose.
Among other speakers Mr. Clarence Peniston
most kindly offered the use of his land round the
Spital Ponds gratis, as a temporary course till that
at the Mount Langton Marsh should be ready.
It was put to the vote and carried unanimously I
that a Committee should be appointed to procure
information on both the proposed schemes and to
present a report at a Public Meeting to be held
whenever the Committee shall have been able to get *
all the requisite information on the subject.
The undermentioned gentlemen were proposed
and expressed their willingness to act as a Commit-
Captain Stanley Creek, T. F. J. Tucker, Esqr., P.
B. Tucker, Esqr T. H. Outerbridge, Esqr.
The meeting then adjourned.

The Kingdom of Bantam, on the island of Java,
is a tributary of Holland. It is a rich and happy
kingdom, and from time immemorial has been gov-
erned wholly by women. The King is, indeed, a
man, but is merely a figurehead, dependent on his
Council of State, which consists of three women.
All the soldiers, military, State and court officers
are women, the men of the community being mer-
chants and farmers. The King's bodyguard is a
battalion of picked Amazons, who ride man-fashion
armed with lance and musket, which latter they
discharge at full galop. The capital city is defend-
ed by two well kept fortresses,

Fertilizer for Potatoes.
Somers 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-
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.
"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 to
Apply in the same manner as with the Pota-
Both kinds are packed in bags of 100 lbs.

Issue of Marriage Licenses.-
Secretary's Office, Bermuda,
22ND OCTOBER, 1877.
WTHEREAS 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.
No Marriage License will henceforth, be

such Minister or other person shall have pro-
duced to the Colonial Secretary, to be laid
before the Governor in Council, documentary
poofs that such Minister, or other person, is

The Senior Member present took the Chair.
The following Messages from His Excellency th<
Governor were delivered by His Excellency's Pri.
vate Secretary :
R. M. LAFFAN,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Honor.
able the Legislative Council that he has been in.
structed by the Right Honorable the Secretary o
State for the Colonies to bring once more under th<
consideration of the Legislature the distressing'cast
of Mrs. Keon, the widow of the late Colonial Sec.
retary of these Islands, in the hope that the Legis.
lature will be pleased to grant some pecuniary as
distance to relieve that poor lady's great distress.
The Governor is informed that Mrs. Keon ha.
been left entirely destitute and in submitting he:
case to the consideration of the Legislature he de.
sires to point out that it is hardly consistent with tbh
generous and liberal spirit which the Legislature o
these Islands has so frequently shewn in dealing
with the claims of Public Servants to refuse all as-
sistance to this poor lady whose husband filled foi
16 years the most important and conspicuous Office
under the Government of this Colony and who now
in addition to the irreparable loss of her husband, ih
-the Governor is informed-left wholly deprived o
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 haE
left behind him a reputation of having been a 'mai
of great intellectual ability, of cultivated taste an
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 ii
the service of this Colony.
The Governor trusts that in these circumstance;
and in others which will be better known to the Le
gislature than they can be to him the Honorabl
the Legislative Council will find consideration
amply sufficient to justify a favorable response ti
Mrs. Keon's appeal to its sympathy and liberality.

R. M. LAFFAN,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon
orable the Legislative Council that he has been re
quested by the Board of Works to inform the Le
gislature that the Board has received a petition
signed by a number of persons residing near tha
portion of the western approach to the Town o
Hamilton which is to be improved during the present
year under the grant made for that purpose of 200
in the Resolve providing for the general expendi-
ture of the late Board of Roads-the petitioners
praying the Board to take steps to improve the ex-
isting road so as to make it a convenient approach to
the Town instead of cutting out a new road as was
proposed in the plan which was before the Legisla-
ture when the Road Resolve was passed.
The Board of Works in deference to the request
of the Petitioners has carefully considered the' re-
lative advantages and the comparative cost of the
two projects of cutting a new road or improving the
existing road, and has for that purpose made a
minute inspection of the localities and caused a
plan to be prepared and a new estimate and art ap-
praisement of the properties affected to be made,
and having maturely considered the whole sub-
ject the Board by a considerable majority has arrived
at the conclusion that it would be more judicious
to improve the existing road than to make the pro-
posed new one.
But as the Board of Works is aware that when
the Legislature passed the Resolve providing 200
for the improvement of this road it had befoi'e it
only the project of making a new Road and had not
the opportunity therefore of considering the, coun-
ter project of improving the old one the Board
thinks it better to refer the subject back for the con-
sideration of the Legislature rather than carry out
the project which it thinks an improvement but
which differs from that which the Legislature had
before it when it made the grant.
Either project can be carried out for the'sum
provided by the Legislature.

S A LETTER FROM STANLEY.
s REMINISCENSES OF DR. LIVINGSTONE THE AFRICAN
n INTERESTING PARTICULARS OF THE COUNTRY.
s NYANGWE MANYEMA,
CENTRAL AFRICA, Nov. 1, 1876. 5
e To the Editors of the New York Herald and the London
s Daily.T i. .,a,/.
While at Ujiji, in 1871, Livingstone kindled in me
an envious desire to see Manyema, when he permit-
ted himself to speak about the glories of the last
country he had traversed. He was truly enthusiastic
about it. HIe spoke of gigantic, towering woods, ex-
traordinary variety of vegetation, beautiful scenes of
wooded hills and verdurous vales and basins, amiable
e and interesting tribes, of beautiful women, and many
other things which showed that the veteran traveller
f had been more than ordinarily impressed. I find
e from diligent inquiries here that his residence, his
h travels hither and thither, and his journey from and to
Ujiji must have embraced a period of three years or
Livingstone's Later Journeys. The distance
from Ujiji to Nyangwe is about 350 English miles,
which we performed in 40 days, inclusive of halts. I
find he was laid up a very long time with a most pain-
ful disease of the feet at Kabambarre. From native
accounts he seems to have been there from six to
. twelve months. It was certainly long enough for the
noble old explorer to study the nature of the natives
n of East Manyema. I have not the slightest doubt that
t by the beautiful women he spoke to me about he
f meant the women of Kakambarre, in East Manyema.
These women are, without doubt, comely, winning
and most amiable compared with anything that Liv-
ingstone may have seen south of South latitude 5 deg.
in Africa. But Livingstone should have visited the
proud beauties of the Watusi Wanyankon, and of the
white race of Gamboragara. He would then have
.only remembered the women of East Manyema for
their winsomeness and amiability. The traveller
"Daoud," or David, is' a well-remembered figure in
this region between Nyangwe and the Tanganyika.
He has made an impression on the people which will
not be forgotten for a generation at least.
The Good White Man.-" Did you know him ?" old
Mwana Ngoi, of the Luarma, asked of me eagerly.
Upon receiving an affirmative he said to his sons and
brothers, Do you hear what he says ? He knew the
good white man. Ah, we shall hear all about him."
Then, turning to me, he asked me, "Was he not a
very good man ?" to which I replied, Yes, my friend,
he was good ; far better than any man, white or Arab,
you will ever see again."
"Ah, yes ; you speak true. He has saved me from
being robbed many a time by the Arabs, and he was
so gentle and patient and told us such pleasant stories
of the wonderful land of the white people. Hm', the
aged white was a good man, indeed !"
Had old Mwana Ngoi been able to speak like an
educated person I should, no doubt, have had some-
thing like a narrative of David Livingstone's virtues
from him, whereas not being educated much 'of what
le said was broken by frequent hm's and shakings of
his head, as though the traveller's good qualities were
beyond description or enumeration. He wisely left
the rest to my imagination, and so I leave them to you.
Weary and Infirm.-But what has struck me, while
tracing Livingstone to his utmost reach-this Arab
depot of Nyangwe-revived all my grief and pity for
him, more so indeed than even his own relation of
sorrowful and heavy things, is that he does not seem
to have been aware that he was sacrificing himself
unnecessarily, nor warned of the havoc of age and
that power had left him. With the weight of many
years pressing on him, the shortest march wearying
him, compelling him to halt many days to recover his
strength, a serious attack of illness frequently pros-
trating him, with neither men nor means to escort and
enable him to make practical progress, Livingstone was
at last like a blind and infirm man, aimlessly moving
about. From my conscience, with not a whit of rny
admiration and love for him lessened in the smallest
degree, but, rather increased by what I have heard
from Arabs and natives, I must say I think one of his
hardest taskmasters was himself.
Unable to Advance.--For instance, he wants to
strike the Lualaba directly west of Kabambarre. He
accompanies a small caravan half way to the river, and
then, finding that the caravan proceeds no further, he
is compelled to come to a halt, even turn back-with it
to Kabambarre. Next he proceeds to Nyangwe; is
about two months on the road, though the distance is
only about 14 marches; from Nyangwe he is desirous
of continuing his journey and of following the Luala-
ba, but he has no means of purchasing canoes, neither
is following the Lualaba practicable, because it is fre-
quently interrupted by falls and rapids, and to follow
it by land he has no men; while on the very first
day's attempt to do it his people are driven back by
overwhelming numbers. He is then compelled to
come to a long halt in Nyangwe, for he cannot go
anywhere. His men are not unwilling to do the best
they can for him, but they and his Arab and native
friends tell him that he is not strong enough to force
his way; that he should have 150 or 200 guns to es-
cort him, and abundance of beads and hLb:. to pacify
and make friends of those who could be induced to be
f.,. y. It all ends by Liviigstone l:: down at
Nyangwe, waiting for an eastward-bound caravan, I
with which he finally departs on the road to Ujiji, a
sorely tried and disappointed traveller. s
But no Pet/.:-,;..-Indeed, from my own experience
of his terrible determination, I know how useless it
would be to advise him. I slyly suggested several
times to him that he should return home, to build his
strength up, that he might recommence his work un-
der better auspices. "No, no, no!" "See home,
friends, country ?" No, no, no, no !" To be
knighted by the Queen and welcomed by thousands of
admirers ?" Yes, but impossible Must not, can-
not, will not!" Then how could such a determined
man be persuaded or advised by his sievants and his
Arab friends ?
I am astonished to perceive that I have written at
great length about Livingstone, but the words Nyang-
we, Manyema, Lualaba, cannot be dissociated from his
name. Besides I am daily told something about him
by my friend Abed bin Salim, and the ruins of his
residence here are about 30 feet from the front door
of my burzah.
A Remarkable Region.-In his conversations with
me at Ujiji Livingstone ascribed much just praise to
almost all of the region west of the Goma Mountains.
It is a most remarkable region--more remarkable
than anything I have seen in Africa. Its woods, or
forests, or jungles, or bush-I do not know by what
particular term to designate the crowded, tall, straight
trees rising from an impenetrable undergrowth of
bush, creepers, thorns, gums, palms, fronds of all
forms, canes and grass-are sublime, even terrible.
Indeed, nature here is either remarkably or savagely
beautiful. At a distance everything looks charming.
Take your stand on any eminence or coigne or vant-
age for view-seeing you may please, be it the crest of
a ridge, the summit of a hill, the crown of a rock, and
if you look around you will firrd yourself delighted,
fascinated. A hundred or a thousand different out-
lines are in view of ridges and ranges, peaks and
cones, the boldly waving or softly rolling, of gradual
or abrupt slope, of mounds, little patches of levels, of
the grand and the picturesque, in bewildering diver-
sity of form. You will exclaim that you see the
splendour of the tropics-that you have caught Nature
rejoicing and happy. Over all she has flung a robe of
varying green ; the hills and ridges are blooming;
the valleys and basins exhale perfume; the rocks
wear garlands of creepers; the stems of the trees are
clothed with moss ; a thousand streamlets of pure cool
water stray, now languid, now quick, toward the north
and south and west. The whole makes a pleasing,
charming illustration of the bounteousness and wild
beauty of tropical Nature.
Deceptive Beauty.-Look closer and analyze all this,
that you may find how deceptive is distance. The
grasses are coarse and high and thick. They form a
miniature copy of an African forest. Their spearlike
blades wound like knives and their points like needles;
the reeds are tall and tough as bamboo; in those pret-
ty looking bushes are thorns-truly the thorns are
hooks of steel; the crown of that yonder low hill with
such a gentle slope is all but inaccessible. See that
glorious crop of crimson flowers on that low bush in
the middle of the lawn green. Pause, my Mriend,
before you venture to pluck them, First, that lawn is
a deception ; it is a forest of tall trees you see, and
that beautiful, gorgeous poison bush is nearly thirty
feet high, and those green banks of vegetation-in those
hollows are almost impenetrable forest belts.
The Forest Depths.--Let me show you a specimen
of a forest in Manyema. You will, no doubt, remember
that our friend Livingstone was enthusiastic about the
woods of Manyema. You would fear to be alone in
those mighty solitudes at night. I made a ramble-a
very short one-into a forest once in search of a rice
cane. There are plenty of canes in these woods, just
like Malacca. I crawled first through something like a
hazel copse, then through a brake, wherein thorns and
palmettas were very conspicuous, then through a strip
of morass out of which shot upward a dense growth of
tall grasses and stiff water cane. Crushing my way
through this obstacle I came to the edge of the forest,
where lines of tall, straight young giants stood fore-
most, extended like skirmishers in front of the dense
masses of Titans, which solmnly stood behind, The
young giants offered no impediment, and I preceded
further in feeling my eyes open wider and wider with
astonishment at sight of the enormous thickness,
height, number and close array of the forest monarchs.-
Eternal Stillness.-But I went to look for canes,
and after a quarter of an hour's search for one of the
desired size I at last found it, and pointed it out to
my gun bearer, who cut it. As I was leisurely peel-
ing it I perceived that my mind, not satisfied with
the transient impression made on it by the massive-
ness and great height of the trees, felt overwhelmed
by the scene. It seemed to receive a solemn or pen-
sive repose from it; and my hands, acted upon by
the mind, ceased their labor, and my eyes were
instantly uplifted. I gradually felt myself affected
more strongly than can be described at the deathly
stillness, in the middle of which appeared those ma-
jestic, lofty, naked and gray figures, like so many
silent apparitions. I looked at them with the same
feeling I have often felt in looking at very ancient
ruins; for these were also venerable monuments,
witnesses of the ancientness of time, all the more im-
pressive because I alone was thus surrounded by them.
Majestic Trees.-Looked I above or around, north
or south, east or west, I saw only the silent gray
shafts of these majestic trees. The atmosphere seem-
ed weighted with an eloquent, though dumb history,
wherein I read, heard, saw and inhaled the record of
lost years and lands. For the time I dropped all re-
membrance of self and identity-all perception of
other scenes and reposes. I seemed to hear pro-
claimed their antiquity, their grand old age, their su-
periority and imperturbability. They appeared to
say :-" Centuries ago we were sown. Silent serene
and undisturbed we grew. We know no strife, con-
tention or passion of your world. Though born of the
earth, fed and nourished by it, yet are we unaffected
with the fate of things on the earth. We are 500
years old. Where wast thou, atom of restless human-
ity, when we were born? What art thou but a brief
accident, slight as the dead leaves under thy feet ?
Go and tell your kind you have seen silence ?
Dwarfs and Chimpanzees.-But really Manyema
woods are exceedingly solemn. I shall probably see
more of them as I travel west. I am told by those
who have penetrated some distance into them that
they contain any numbers of sokos (gorillas). Liv-
ingstone informed me that these sokos are gorillas.
I have not seen any yet; I have only heard their
hoarse cries in the woods; but from the descriptions
given of them by the Arabs and natives I am inclined
to think they are chimpanzees. Other singular crea-
tures of these forests are said to be the dwarfs, whose
heights have been variously given from thirty inches
to four feet. They are evidently nomads, and they
must have an exceedingly wide range. They are
said to be exceedingly fond of meat, all creatures
furnishing them with the means of existence, from
an elephant to a rat. They are more attached to the
pursuit of the elephant than any other, probably be-
cause of the abundance of meat those animals sup-
ply. Their weapons are poisoned arrows, whose dead-
ly effect is so feared by the wanguana that they have
renounced all intenion to molest them any more.
While in the new region to which I am bound I shall
endeavour to obtain a personal knowledge of the
sokos and the dwarfs.
What's in a Name?"-The name of Manyema
has become very familiar to readers of late African
travels. The word is pronounced in various ways-
Man-yema, Manuyema, Many-wena, but I believe
Man-yema is the most popular. I take it to be a
corruption of Mana, or Mwana-Yema-the son ot
Yema. It is rare we hear of the proper names of
countries in this region. Thus we are told Kabani-
barri is Mwana-Kusu, Kizambala is Mwana-Ngoi
Tubanda is known to most people under the name of
M.wania-Mamba '- have also ., ,
- i: .., '. .. o r ,.. ; .: .
It is not a very large country. It covers an area ot
about ten thousand square miles. About half of it is
spread over with dense woods; the more southern
half is embraced by the broad Luama Valley and the
fine'open country of Uzura. The hills are without
doubt the effect of that great convulsion which formed
Lake Tanganyiki. In certain localities the streams
run over lava beds and iron ore, which has the aspect
of being smelted.
But Manyema is not so interesting nor a fourth as
.large as Uregga. It is difficult to enter into any de-
tails about a country as yet but partially explored, but
from the descriptions given of its mountains and hills,
and of the many large rivers which intersect it, I have
a strong conviction Uregga would repay exploration.
Uregga, like Manyema, consists of small districts
governed by independent chiefs.
How they are Confused.-The Lualaba" is an in-
stance among many in his nomenclature I could fur-
nish you of Livingstone's excessive partiality for the
letter B. According to the natives it should be pro-
nounced Lu-hl.awa, not Lua-1]-ba, but foreign tongues,
:with their respective influences-that of the Arab
slaves over the Arabs, the Arabs over the white travel-
ler, the white traveller over his countrymen-have
given us a choice of names.
When Moeni Dugumbi's slaves first entered Man-
yema they thought they heard the great river called
U-gl1-owa, whereas the natives no doubt said Lu-Al-
awa or Lu-Al-uwa. The slaves returning to their
master, Dugumbi, said they had seen a sea-like river
Dugumbi is interested at once, and repeats, inter-
rogatively, "Uga-rowa ?" by which we find Ugalowa
is changed to Ugarowa. Dugumbi writes, in his let-
ters to his friends at Ujiji and Unyanyembe, about
Ugarowa. Arab slaves convey tidings wherever they
go of Ugalowa. Mohammed bin Gharib brings Liv-
ingstone with him from Ujiji, who is destined to give
the river another name. On the road to Nyangwe,
with interested ears, he hears the native name Lu-
A'l-awa. His dislike of the Arab and the slave hunter
causes him to reject, and rightly, the corrupted term
Ugalawa, or Ugarowa, but he cannot resist, giving the
word a Livingstonian impression. We therefore
heard of-not Lu-'l-awa- but Lua-la-ba.
Livingstone River.-If geographers left it to me to d
decide what name should be given it most heartily
would I beseech them to let it be called Livingstone
River or Livingstone's Lualaba, to commemorate his
discovery of it and his heroic struggles against adver-
sity to explore it. At the present dry season the river
here is about one thousand yards wide; during the
monsoon or rainy season it extends to about two
miles in width at Nyangwe.
Three days from date I propose to set out in a
northerly direction, through Uregga, occasionally strik-
ing,the Lualaba, to maintain an acquaintance with it,
and continue northerly to the utmost of my limits,
means and power.

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Hamilton, Tuesday, November 6, 1877.
HAMILTON, 19th October, 1877.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR SIR,-Having occasion to call at the lately
opened Refreshment Rooms of Mr. George Sims, I
was so pleased and agreeably surprised to find them
really, if not just the thing, an initiative step and close
approximation to what has long been wanted, in the
rapidly growing Town of Hamilton, the seat of Gov-
ernment, centre of trade and business and the starting
point of almost every enterprise-that, knowing the
great interest you take in everything pertaining to the
Public weal, I have thought respecting this you would
like to hear somewhat.
To be brief, then, they consist of suites of comfort-
able apartments, amply furnished, in the second Story
of a House eligible situated in Reid, decidedly the
prettiest street in Hamilton, and are adapted and ap-
propriated to the accommodation of transient visitors
and such Ladies and Gentlemen as business or pleas-
ure call to Hamilton, wanting a temporary resting
place and with as little loss of time as possible, a sound
and sufficient meal or lighter refreshment, either
morning, noon or evening.
I made my entry by the door to the Westward,
leading to and up steps to a handsome and common.
dious verandah running along the front of the House
and thus affording a view of the whole length of the
street, harbour and beautiful hills opposite, just now
clothed with the ripening tints of autumn, and pro-
ceeding from it to the Refreshment Saloon, Gentle-
men and Ladies Table d'Hote rooms, in each of which
I saw sufficient proof of comfort and the good things
calculated to awaken appetite and satisfy the cravings
of the "inner man". and all of which I can from my
own knowledge and experience say, will be greatly
enhanced by the superintending care and assiduous
attentions of Mrs. Sims and her assistants.
Before leaving I was politely invited to examine
the other and no less desirable provisions for the ac-
commodation of the Public, upon the lower flat or
story. Here on either side of the place of Business or
Store, perfectly distinct from each other, are tables

have; but better than all would be 10 or 15 man-
loads of rice or grain to fill their pinched bellies im-

time to purchasegoods, and starving people cannot wait.
The supplies mnst arrive within two days, or I may

I hold myself responsible for any expense you may
incur in this business. What is wanted is immediate
relief, and I pray you to use your utmost energies to
forward it at once. For myself, if you have such
little luxuries as tea, coffee, sugar, and biscuits by
you, such as one man can easily carry, I beg you, on
my own behalf, that you will send a small supply and
add to the great debt of gratitude due to you upon
the timely arrival of the supplies for my people.-
Until that time, I beg you to believe me, yours sin-

Messrs. A. Motta Viega and J. W. Harrison, Em-
boma, Congo River.
Gentlemen-I have received your very welcome let-
ter ; but, better than all, and more welcome, your sup-
plies. I am unable to express just at present how grate-
ful I feel. We are all so overjoyed and confused with
our emotions at the sight of the stores exposed to our
hungry eyes-at the sight of the rice, the fish, and the
rum, and for me-wheat bread, butter, sardines, jam,
peaches, grapes, beer (ye gods, just think of it!)
three bottles pale ale! besides tea and sugar; that we
cannot restrain ourselves from falling to and enjoying
this sudden bounteous store-and-I beg you will
charge our apparent want of thankfulness to our greed-
iness. If we do not think you sufficiently in words,
rest assured we feel what volumes could not describe.
For the next 24 hours we shall be too busy eating
to think of anything else much; but I may say that
the people cry out joyfully, while their mouths are
full of rice and fish, Verily our master has found the
sea and his brothers, but we did not believe him until
he showed to us the rice and the pombe (the rum).
We did not believe there was any end to this great
river, the Congo; but, God be praised for ever, we
shall see white people to-morrow, and our wars and
troubles will be over."
Dear Sirs-Though strangers, I feel we shall be
great friends, and it will be the study of my lifetime
to remember my feelings of gratefulness when I first
caught sight of your supplies, and my poor, faithful,
and brave people cried out, Master we are saved !
Food is coming !" The old and the young-the men,
women, and children-lifted their wearied and worn-
out frames, and began to chant lustily an extempo-
rised song in honour of the white people by the great
salt sea (the Atlantic), who had listened to their
prayers. I had to rush to my tent to hide the tears
that would issue despite all my attempts at composure.
Gentlemen-That the blessing of God may attend
your footsteps whithersoever you go, is the very ear-
nest prayer of, yours very faithfully,
HENRY M. STANLEY,
Commanding Anglo-American Expedition.

A Russian official despatch dated Tutchenitza,
before Plevna, Oct. 25th, says : Yesterday after a
desperate engagement of ten hours Gourko's de.
tached division, co-operating with a portion of the
Imperial Guards, captured a strong Turkish posi-
tion between Guroyi Dubuk and Teliche. Gourko
then stationed himself on the Sofia road, strength-
ening his position with new;fortifications. This en-
gagement also resulted in the capture of Achmet
Errsi Pasha, his chief of staff and many other Turk-
ish officers. About 3000 foot soldiers, an entire
regiment of cavalry, four cannon and a quantity of
rifles and ammunition were also captured. Our
loss is unknown but must have been considerable.
VIENNA, Oct. 25.-Special despatches to the
Presse says Kars has been bombarded, and that a

LONDON, Oct. 29.-Turkey prohibits the importa-
tion of grain. The Porte denies the Russian vic-
tory at Dubinak.
The British ambassador at St. Petersburg has
been ordered to confer with Gortschakoff on the
question ot mediation.
The Czar instructed Gortschakoff to prepare for
a revision of the Russian constitution.

BUCHAREST, Oct. 29.-Yesterday a body of Rus-

Three cannon were captured.
LONDON, Oct. 31.-Moukhtar and Ismael Pashas,
have retired to a strong position near Hassan Ka-
leh. The Russians are posted behind Koprikoi.
The Turkish loss at the capture by Russians of
the position near Gorney Dubruk on the 24th was
four thousand killed besides wounded and prison-
ers. The Russians only succeeded in storming the
position at the third attempt. They accuse the
Turks of twice luring them under a destructive fire
by displaying a white flag.
The Russians are fortifying positions at Dubruk
and Telische, as they are threatened with a combin-
ed attack by Osman and Chevor Pashas.'
Twenty thousand refugees, women and children,
are still at Constantinople.
The opening of bombardment of Podgoritza is
expected in a few days.
Negotiations with Kars' garrison are broken off
and bombardment recommended. The district of
Kagysman is placed under Russian administration.
The corps of Generals Heyman and Tergukasoff
effected a junction, and are near Hassan Kaleh.
The Russian success in the rear of Plevna is evi-
dently producing consternation in Constantinople.
A despatch from Pera yesterday says it is report-
ed there that Orchanie is captured with Chefket
Pasha and several thousand troops, but if so we
should probably have had a report from Russian
Christie's Servian servant communicated a des-

THE REVEREND DR. FOGGO OF PHILADELPHIA.-
The Sunday Times of Philadelphia of the 23rd Sep-
tember last contained a wicked letter touching the
Reverend Dr. Foggo, and his amiable wife, copies
of which reached these the Islands of his nativity.
No one in Bermuda for a moment gave credence
in the slightest degree to this infamous slander,
and the circumstance of its appearance in a
Sunday paper, which in the United States, are
with but few exceptions prone to scandal, delight-
ing in villifying the upright and the holy-was
sufficient in the minds of those who knew this fact,
to at once place it in an adverse light to what the
We have been kindly handed the following ex-
tract of a letter from a gentleman resident of
Philadelphia to a friend here. The emphatic ex-
pressions used by the writer will doubtless convince
the most sceptical how false were the accusation.
We know of other letters from Philadelphia,
expressing great indignation at the publication of
such a libel against the Doctor who is, they all say,
greatly esteemed by all denominations of christians
in that city. .... :..
PHILADELPHIA, OCTR. 24, 1877.-The article in
one of our Sunday papers some time ago, about
a clergyman from Bermuda, &c., did refer to Dr.
Foggo and his wife, but as you rightly supposed,
the whole story is a base lie, and the Editor of the
paper has since come out with a profuse apology.
What caused the article, I do no know: it is sup-
posed to have been written by one of the females
of his Congregation on account of some Church
jealousy on her part about some Church matters.
Dr. Foggo stands very high, in the estimation of
every one, not alone his Congregation, and no one
for a moment took the article for more than its

SIR,-You will oblige me by inserting the following:
A few days ago my name was pretty freely used by a
certain very prominent man who does business on
Front Street and who also receives a very handsome
emolument from the country ; my name having been
mentioned as one belonging to a certain meat contract

calumnies were heaped upon me with intent to do'
me the greatest injury possible.
I have been doing Business here for the last twelve
years, and have always endeavoured by all my acts to
nerit the esteem and confidence of all honest men and

5th November, 1877.
A VIRTUOUS FORGER.
William C. Gilman of New York, a dealer in In-
surance Scrip, has been convicted of forgery and
sentenced to the State prison for five years. Insur-
ance Scrip represents profits and is issued by Com-
panies to their customers who share in the profits.
It is subject to losses of the Coampanies after its
issue, and is payable when further profits make it
safe to do so. Though not paid generally until
three or four years after its issue, the Scrip of the
strong companies is seldom worth less than its face.
The Scrip is generally for small amounts, and Gil-
man has been for five years tampering with these.
All the change he made was to increase the
amounts for which the Scrip was issued, raising
them from their genuine hundred or two of dollars
to sums reaching as high as five thousand dollars.
The alterations were so clumsily done that a second
glance would have detected them. He did not sell
this raised Scrip, but obtained money on its pledge,
taking up the loans as they matured or were called
in. He was away from the City when one of his
loans was unexpectedly called in, and having no
one at the moment to answer for him, it happened
that the Scrip held by his creditor was looked at.
Its suspicious character was observed, and on pre-
sentation to the Company issuing it, it was pro-
nounced an altered certificate. Scrutiny having
thus begun, it was found out that Gilman had ob-
tained nearly two hundred thousand dollars on
Scrip raised to more than that sum, but good for
only a twentieth part of it. He never intended to
present the altered Scrip for redemption, but as it
became payable would have destroyed it, either
giving up altogether the comparatively small a-
mounts it was issued for, or obtaining them on
proof of loss of the certificates.
Gilman's excellent character enabled him to ob-
tain all this money on Scrip most clumsily altered
and representing unusually large amounts. He
was so greatly esteemed, that friends or acquaint-
ances loaning him money never dreamed of examin-
ing closely the securities he offered them. They
took for granted all he told them, and the good re-
pute of the man made clean all he handled. There
was nothing fast, extravagant, or conspicuous in
his life. He lived respectably and easily as some
inherited wealth and an apparently good business
justified. He was as free from vices as a baby. He
drank no strong drinks, drove no showy horses,
kept no bad company, and avoided all dissipations,
frivolous or vulgar. He went home about the
same time every day, stayed there with his wife and
family, and employed his leisure in painting in wa-
ter colors. He was a vestryman and strict mem-
ber of the Protestant Episcopal Church, was active
in Sunday School and Choir work, and gave liber-
ally of his time and money to charitable and relig-
ious objects. In all respects his life and habits
were regular and orderly, and he was one of the
dozens of prudent, quiet, unambitious workers,
who are unheard of outside of their social and
When his frauds were discovered he kept away
from his home and office, and his friends tried to
buy up the raised Scrip so as to prevent prosecution
on it. Failing in this, Gilman surrendered him-
self, pleaded guilty to the indictment which
had been found against him, and in a fortnight
from the time when his forgeries were discovered,
was in jail under sentence. He confessed and
showed how he had drifted into crime. He
lost by the failure of Companies whose Scrip he
held; his business and income decreased, and be-
fore he had thought of it he found himself pinched
and unable to supply his usual domestic and char-
itable demands for money. He lacked the courage
or conscience, or both, to reduce expenses and adapt
his mode of life to his changed circumstances. He
expected every moment the better turn to come in
his affairs, and only wanted to tide over less pros-
perous times. An unhappy accident showed him
how easily such alterations as he made in Scrip
could be accomplished; and his unquestioned pro-
bity and credit enabling him to obtain money on
fraudulent securities without suspicion, he began,
and for four or five years continued, his career of
forgery. All this time, while reaping and using
the fruits of fraud, he led an exemplary, pure, and
religious life; and it was not until his own confes-
sion left no doubt of his misdeeds, that those who
had known and observed him could believe that his
fair outward seeming had concealed crimes so
