ARRIVAL OF THE ADMIRAL.
Vice Admiral Sir Astley Cooper Key, K.C.B., F.R.
S., arrived from Halifax in his Flag Ship the Bellero-
phon, on Thursday last. His Excellency is accompani-
ed by Lady Key, and the Misses Key.
H. M. S. Argus, Commander Harris, from Halifax,
arrived on Friday last.
H. M. Ships Eclipse, Pert and Zephyr, may be ex-
pected shortly from Halifax.
H. M. S. Plover, was to leave Halifax for Bermuda,
about the 11th, bringing the bi-monthly English mail.
H. M. S. Blanche, Captain Knowles, arrived on the
8th, from England, for service on this Station.
H. M. S. Encounter, Captain Bradshaw, left on Sat-
urday last for Sheerness, to be paid off. The Encoun-
ter has been in commission since August 1873.
The rumour mentioned in the Halifax papers that the
Triumph was to relieve the Bellerophon on this station
has, we have reason to believe, no foundation in truth.
H. M. Troopship Simoom, Captain Paisley, arrived
on Thursday last from Malta, with the 21st Company
of Royal Engineers, consisting of 3 Sergts., 8 Corpor-
als and 56.rank and file, commanded by Captain H.
Robinson with Lieuts. R. C. Hilliard and G. T. Ni-
cholls.
I The Simcom leaves to-morrow afternoon for Barba-
dos. She has on board for that Island 54 rank and file
of H. M. 35th Regiment, under command of Major
Barnes, with Lieut. Cary of that Regiment.
We understand that it depends on circumstances at
Barbados whether the Simoom comes back to Bermuda
at all on this occasion;
THE LEGISLATURE.-It will be noticed by the
Proceedings of the two branches of the Legislature
which appear in our to-day's issue, that it is the
intentention of His Excellency the Governor to pro-
rogue Pailiament on Friday next, the 16th instant,
at 1 o'clock.
It will also be noticed that His Excellency has
communicated to both Houses the substance of a
dispatch from the Right Honorable the Secretary
of State for the Colonies, in reference to the diffi-
culty which occurred in the early part of the pres-
ent Session, between the House of Assembly and
the then Executive in reference to the right claimed
by the former to have the Public Books of Account
laid before them, the then Receiver General de-
clining to comply with their demand without an
order to that effect from the Executive. The opini-
on of the Secretary of State on the subject, it will
be seen, is in accordance with the views entertained
by the House of Assembly and further that the Re-
ceiver General must attend the House whenever the
Books of Public Accounts are required.

We notice that at the last examination for en-
trance to the Staff College, Lt. Leverson, R.E., ob-
tained the 2nd place in the list of Successful Can-
didates and Captain Allatt, 46th Regiment the 31st
place.

For the Royal Gazette.


FURTHER POSTPONEMENT OF THE SITTINGS OF THE
COURT OF GENERAL AsSIZE.-A Proclamation by
His Excellency the Governor appears in the official
column to-day notifying, that he has thought fit
further to Postpone the Sittings of the Court of
General Assize from Monday the 12th instant to
Monday the 26th instant, then to commence unless
His Excellency shall otherwise order in the mean-
time.


THE BERMUDA HUNT.-The run to-day will be from
the Warwick Camp lo Colonel Bennett's at Prospect.
A good meet may be expected. The course is along
the South shore and through the prettiest coast scenery
of Bermuda.
We understand that Major-General Sir R. M. Laf-
fan, R.E., K.C.M.G., Commander-in-Chief, will hold
an Inspection of the '87th Regiment at St. George, at
11 o'clock on Thursday next.
The Canima, not making her appearance yester-
day, caused disappointment. We were in hopes she
would arrive and bring us some late and important
news from the Seat of War in Europe. By the la-
test telegraphic information at Halifax, up to the
time of the Flagship leaving, we learn there was no
probability of peace being established.

A Supplement of four col-
umns accompanies this issue
of the Gazette."
MARRIED, at Christ Church, Devonshire, on 8th
instant, by the Rev. Mark James, Rector, WILLIAM
Cox, Esqr., to LEONORA JANE, daughter of William
Middleton Conyers, Esqr., deceased.

DIED, at Woodland, Paget, on the 8th instant,
being his birth-day, OTHNIEL ANGLIM GILBERT, Es-
quire, aged 50 years.
Mr. Gilbert was but recently admitted to the Bermu-
da Bar, having formerly practised for many years as a
Solicitor in Demerara. He was a man of the highest
character and the most unblemished honor, and his
amiable disposition had endeared him to all who knew
him.
Although he had been for sometime in a precarious
state of health, his death was very sudden; and it has
spread a deep gloom over a large circle of connections
and friends.
........., at his residence "Bell Air" Cottage, South-
ampton Parish on the 9th instant, after a long and
painful illness, MR. ISAAC LUKE, a native of Pem-
brokeshire, South Wales, aged 72; much respected by
all who knew him for his great integrity, upright course
of life and great benevolence. He leaves a widow, a
nephew, and a number of friends to lament his death.
His end was peace.
His remains were followed to the rave on Sunday
last, by the Members of the Bermuda Mechanics' Bene-
ficial Association, of which he had been a Member for
over 23 years.
I ........., on the 5th instant, at St. George's, WILLIAM
ST. GEORGE HOPE, infant son (,f Captain J. G. An-
derson, 87th Royal Irish Fusiliers, aged five months.

Council Chamber, 6th November, 1877.
On the question for the second reading of the
Resolve granting a sum of 1,500 for the erection
of a Clock Tower, &c., on the south front of the
Sessions' House being put, the Honorable James
H. Trimingham moved the following Resolution
which passed unanimously:-
"That in the opinion of this House it is not ex-
pedient at this late period of the Session to concur
in a grant for a Public Clock and for building a
Tower for the same, in as much as the amount was
not in the estimate of charges for the current year,
and consequently not provided for at the proper
time. The Council are quite satisfied of the great
utility of a Public Clock, but deem it advisable to
defer the subject for consideration at a future Ses-.
sion of the Legislature.
The following Message from His Excellency the
Governor was delivered by the Colonial Secretary:
(No. 16.)
ROBERT M. LAFFAN,
Major General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief,
I; The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable Legislative Council that he has received a
despatch Number 40 and dated Downing Street, 1I
September, 1877, from Ils Lordship the Secretary
of State for the Colonies, replying to Colonel Morri-
son's despatch number 89, dated Bermuda, 23rd
July, 1877, on the subject of the differences which
had arisen between the Honorable House of As-
sembly and the Executive Government, respecting
the proper course to be pursued when the Honor.
able House of Assembly desired to examine the Re-
ceiver General's Account Books-and the GovernoI


has the honor to lay before the Honorable Legisla-
tive Council the following extracts from that des-
patch-conveying the decision of His Lordship the
Secretary of State for the Colonies on the questions
referred to him by Colonel Morrison :-
3.-The Ordinance No. 28 of 1875, provides a-
amongst other things that the Public Accounts are
always to be open to the inspection and examin-
ation of the Assembly. This Ordinance however,
"could scarcely be of any effect if the Assembly
"could only obtain sight of the Public Account
"Books by applying to the Governor of the Colony
"and I am of opinion that the right to inspect the
Accounts carries with it the right to summon the
"custodian to produce them."
4.-oThe custodian of the Accounts moreover
"ought not to permit them to remain out of his
custody, and therefore should not leave them in
"the House of Assembly when it is not sitting, but
"should be ready to take them down from day to
day as often as required."
Mount Langton, 6th November, 1877.

M-r. Speaker and Gentlemen of the House of Assembly ;

quaint your Honorable House that there is no fur-
ther business before the Council to engage its at-

Council Chamber, 8th November, 1877.
` The following message from His Excellency the
Governor was delivered by His Excellency's Pri-
vate Secretary:-
(No. 17.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Legis-
lative Council that he will prorogue Parliament on
Friday the 16th instant, at 1 o'clock p.m.
Mount Langton, 8th November, 1877.
Adjourned to Friday, 16th November, at 12
o'clock.
It is significant of the prestige of the magisterial
office in England, that the highest men in the land
are proud to accept the Chairmanship of the Board
of County Magistrates. Thus, Lord Salisbury, Se-
cretary for India, is Chairman of the Middlesex
magistrates; and Lord Derby, Foreign Secretary,
has just been elected to the same office in Lanca-
shire. There are some twenty Middlesex Justices
who work, all unpaid, harder than many men with
a handsome salary. Jails, lunatic asylums, indus-
trial schools, reformatories, &c.,.are the objects of
their attention. Probably ri:,l. !- is the only
country in the world where so much work is done
gratis.

WHALE BAY BATTERY.
DEAR MR. EDITOR,-I must tell you of the great
Surprise Party we had here a few days ago, by the fir-
ing of our big guns, with full charges of shot and pow-
der, as a test of the strength of the Battery-being the
first firing since it was built. I believe it has given
every satisfaction, the only damage done was a slight
break in a perpendicular wall near one of the guns.
We were largely attended by several of the highest
Military Officers in the Colony, viz., Colonel Morrison,
C.R.E., Major Crawford, R.A., Major John, 46th Re-
giment, Captain Slacke, R.E., and several others.
There were very few civilians as it was gene-
rally understood the firing was to be the next day, and
we would then have had a very large party of spectators
as they had been waiting to hear when the day would be
appointed for the opening of the Battery. These guns
are the largest and only guns that are mounted on any
fortification on the main land of Bermuda, that is from
St. George's Ferry to Somerset Ferry. The charges
used for these guns on this occasion, were 50 lbs. pow-
der, and 250 lb. shot. One gun was ranged at 3,000
yards to strike the south west breaker, and fired twice
at that object, one going beyond, the other under ; had
it been a vessel instead of the breaker they could not
have missed striking her.
In the last few days this Battery has received a very
large quantity of shot, shell and powder, and perhaps
these Officers will soon pay us another visit, but before
doing so I hope the public will be notified, so they may
take a peep at these Bull Dogs and see how they bark
when.throwing those heavy pieces of steel. This Bat-
tery is well situated for practising, having a good range
on the ocean and only five minutes walk from the pub-
lic landing on the Sound side, and very few neighbors
about here to frighten, as we have a Rifle Range at
Warwick, it might be made a practising place for the
Artillery. As I told you before we did not expect the
firing until the next day, but to my great surprise about
11 a.m. on Monday the 29th ultimo, a large party of
Artillery came out, and the Officers brought their hor-
ses to my Barnyard for protection, from the noise of
the guns; and being informed that they would open fire
in a few minutes from the Battery, I immediately made
the fact known to the inmates of my house, that they
might get out as soon as possible, but it so unnerved
them, that they were not able to go far. After leaving
them I immediately started for the Battery which is
only.about 2CO yards off. I had not got far up the hill,
when I was suddenly shocked by a heavy report of a
gun, which sounded like an earthquake. I turned
around to see if the house was standing. I soon saw
that all was safc, but poor Old Aunt Sally (a lady of
color) who was going into the kitchen was scrambling
from the ground where she had fallen through fright,
and was looking up to the chimney, as she was fearful
that the firing would shake it down, but no harm was
done. The poultry was very much frightened; the
ducks came tumbling down the hill and the horses and
cows were running the full length of their tethers, and
the hogs were jumping around their sties at a furious
rate.

INSURANCE INTERESTS.


A FEW WORDS IN REGARD TO A RECENT IMPORTANT
CHANGE-A MODEL COMPANY.
The honorable retirement from business at this par-
ticular time of the St. Louis and Phoenix Insurance
Companies, after a long and successful career, evinced
rare sagacity on the part of both companies. Their
Boards are composed of men of the highest commerci-
al standing in St. Louis, and their selection of the Queen
Insurance Company of Liverpool and London as their
successor, exhibits a determination to fully protect the
policy-holders and stock-holders against every con-
tingency. The "Queen" has a capital of two mil-
lion pounds sterling, of which $1,500,000 is invested
mostly in United States and State bonds, and is held
by trustees in New York as a fund for the protection
of American policy-holders. The stock of the Queen
Insurance Company sells in the London market at
three and a hall pounds sterling for every pound paid
up, or at over 300 per cent premium. The very prompt
settlement by the company of their large losses in the
great fires of Boston and St. John's-it having been
effected within sixty days-is a record to be proud of.
The Queen Insurance Company, in succeeding to the
business of the companies named, secures an additi-
onal united ani,ual income of about $300,000. The
negotiation of such large transactions in insurance re-
flects great credit on Mr. Western Bascome, the St.
Louis Agent of the Company. lie will hereafter oc-
cupy the very elegant offices of the It. Louis Insur-
ance Company, at No. 317 Chestnut street, Chamber
of Commerce building, and for a short time longer
will also continue the insurance business at his former
office, No. 110 Locust Street. That he has been en-
trusted by his own and the local companies with such
high trust and succession, is very complimentary to
him, and insures fair and honorable dealing to the
customers of the three companies above named and to
the public generally.
The advertisement of the company, on another
page, invites all the policy-holders of the companies
to call at either office for negotiating renewals, indorse-
ments, and all changes required to be made to the
policies of either company. The cargo risks of the
St. Louis Insurance Company are reinsured in the
Pacific Mutual Insurance Company of New York, of
which Mr. Bascome is also agent, and he will un-
doubtedly extend to their customers as liberal terms
as any.otherlsound company.-St. Louis Daily Globe-
Democrat, Oct. 81.

Thebspecial correspondent of the Standard, writing
on the 12th instant, from Adrianople, gives the fol-
lowing touching account of the condition and treat-
ment of the wounded.
I'll be your slave all my life if you cure me.'
It was a poor wounded Turkish soldier, lying in one
of the neat wards of the Stafford House Hospital
here, who spoke. His emaciated countenance
contrasted strongly with his healthy, powerfully-built
frame. His dim eyes were looking wistfully on the
ever-cheerful face of Dr. Bond Moore, whose
Herculean form was bending over him. 'The
keeper of the ward wanted to dress my wounds this
morning.'fhe went on, but I told him that I would
rather wait the whole day long, if necessary, till the,
English hakim would come and see to me himself.'
The story of the poor fellow is only one out of many
hundreds. He had his first and slight dressing, days,
probably, after the fatal Russian bullet or sabre did
its best to perform its destructive duty upon his
body. Left without any further medical assistance,
he reached this town after an exhausting journey of
at least three days, during which he was exposed to
the fiery rays of the summer sun in the jolting ox-
cart which conveyed him from Kezanlik to Philip-
popolis. After a few days' stay at the latter town,
he had the questionable good fortune to be hurried
into a horse-waggon, without any straw even to
soften his hard couch, to be carried by rail to Adrian-
ople. Here be was taken out of the train as a "se-
vere case," not without an energetic protest on his
part that he was able to go on to Constantinople; for
he was afraid that he would be left here, as he had
been already at Philippopolis, at the mercy of a
scanty and slow-working staff of Turkish surgeons,
And here he is in the Stafford House Hospital, bless-
ing Providence who directed him into the hands of
the Inglis hakim-bashi.'
The story of his feelings of gratitude is also
only one out of many hundreds. All the wounded
do not express their sentiments in such outspoken
terms, but the doctors have only one phrase about
them-' they never saw such grateful patients in
their life.' How many times have not I seen a
soldier roll a cigarette out of his scanty allowance
of tobacco and offer it to his surgeon, when his
wounds had been dressed, as the sole possible but


A correspondent writes to the Pall Mall Gazette:
"There is at times some curious human nature to
be found in the miscellaneous columns of Sale and
Barter. It is announced in the current number
that a lady wishes to sell a valuable Indian charm
of great power, it has been in the family for twenty
years, and must be transferred to an entire stranger
to use for the next twenty years.' It does not ap-
pear what the effect of the charm is, or what evi-
dence of its virtues will be furnished to an intend-
ing purchaser. Would a 'trial at your own home
free of expense,' be allowed, after the example of
some enterprising makers of sewing machines ? If
this precaution or some equivalent one, such as
selling the charm, with its faults'-were omitted,
the transaction might possibly give rise to another
instructive decision on the meaning of the words
by palmistry or otherwise.' The same page pre-
sents us in sober reality with the substance of an
ancient Cambridge jest. An undergraduate, chal-
lenged to suggest anything which could not be
bought of a certain firm of universal providers,
named a second hand pulpit. Issue was taken on
his assertion by the usual means of a bet, and he
lost it. Modern criticism is probably preferred to
reduce this story to a solar myth but here, at all
events, is a second hand pulpit in real substantial
wood-' octagon-shaped, Gothic panelled, deep
molded, with spring door and seat,' and, moreover,
a stout column to support same, and flight of seven
steps to approach the pulpit.' One even more un-
likely second-hand article was not long ago offered
for sale in the Exchange and Mart-a county court
judge's wig as good as new. Another advertiser
who wants to dispose of a ring set with cat's eyes,
more prudent or more sceptical than the possessor
of the Indian charm enhances the value of his trin-
ket by the remark that it is 'supposed to bring good
luck to its wearer."

Canaris, the Premier of Greece and its greatest
hero of modern times, died in a room unacarpeted,
and unpapered, so poor that his grandchildren had
to attend inferior schools because there they could
get free tuition.

your Legislative labours though that satis-
faction is largely alloyed by the reflection
how much useful legislative work remains
yet to be done before the frame work of
Government and the administrative machinery
of this Colony can be said to be settled on a
satisfactory basis. I fully recognize however
that you have already attended to your Par-
liamentary duties during the present Session,
long after the time which it has been usual
to fix for the prorogation and that your
presence is now imperatively required else-
where to enable you to attend to impor-
tant private affairs. I hope those private
affairs will not have suffered from your close
and protracted attention to your public du-
ties, and I trust that between this and the
commencement of next Session we shall all
be able to study carefully and maturely
how best to carry out many useful meas-
ures and many necessary reforms which are
urgently called for in the interests of the
public service.
I have observed with much satisfaction
among the measures which you have passed
this Session some useful Acts which will I
feel sure help to promote and advance the
prosperity of these Islands.
The Clergy Act of 1877 has made pro-
vision for the maintenance of our religious
establishments for the next five years and
has thereby ensured our having ample time
to prepare carefully and calmly any further
Legislative enactments connected with Church
matters which may be called for when that
period shall have expired.
The Act establishing a Board of Works
will, I trust, enable the Executive Govern-
ment to provide for the maintenance and
improvement of our Public Buildings and
for the erection of any new edifices that
may be sanctioned by the Legislature in a
more efficient and economical manner than
was possible under the system which had
previously obtained, and it will at the same
time I hope prove the means of obviating
those misunderstandings between the Legis-
lative and Executive branches of the Gov-
ernment which have delayed so many useful
measures.
The New York Steam Subsidy Act I
consider to be the first fruit produced by
the creation of the Board of Works. The
maintenance of regular steam communication
with New York is of primary importance
to the agricultural interests-and indeed I
may say to every interest of these Islands
-and I feel sure that the Board of Works in
carrying out this Act will use every effort to
prove itself worthy of the confidence re-
posed in it by the Legislature. The annual
sum placed at its disposal is small as com-
pared with the extent of the service to be
provided for, but nevertheless I trust that
the Board of Works will be able to provide
an efficient Steam communication with New


York without exceeding the amount of the
Parliamentary Grant.
The Resolve you have passed for the
completion of the Light House at St. David's
Island will enable the Light House Com-
missioners to complete that useful struc-
ture and have it efficiently at work at an
early date, and we may reasonably hope that
by providing for the greater security of the
shipping frequenting our waters it may be
th4.&.means of saving human life and pre-
serving valuable property and so promoting
the welfare and prosperity of this commu-
nity.
I have been pleased to see that by their
action on the Audit Bill both the Legis-
lative Houses have recognized the fact
that the present arrangements for Auditing


Public Accounts are defective and require
amendment. I have been sorry however to
find that owing to a difference of opinion
between the two Houses as to the manner
in which an effective audit should be
provided you have been unable to pass
any Audit Act this Session. I trust that
next Session we may be more fortunate,
and in the meantime to satisfy my own
mind and to enable me with a safe con-
science to sign Warrants authorising pay-
ments from the Public Treasury, I have
appointed Mr. Morris Frith, with whose
skill as an accountant you are all I be-
lieve well acquainted, to be my private
Secretary for the purpose of assisting me
to audit before payment those accounts
and claims which are not audited at present
by the Quarterly Audit Committees. I hope
however that next Session the Legislature
will be able to arrive at such an agreement
as will provide for a public audit of these
accounts, as a public audit must always
prove more satisfactory in every way than
any private audit can ever be.
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the House of As-
sembly ;
I have to thank you on Her Majes-
ty's behalf for the supplies you have vot-
ed for the Public Service. It is too early
as yet to form any definite opinion as to
whether the Supply Act will suffice to meet
all our requirements, but I trust that by
a judicious exercise of economy we may be
able to reach the end of the present year
without a deficit.
With respect to one measure passed by
your House-the Resolve providing for the
erection of a Clock Tower in front of your
House of Assembly-I have been glad to see
in it the earnest of a desire to beautify and
adorn your capital with useful public works,
and I trust that though the Resolve has
not been passed this Session by the Hon-
orable Legislative Council owing to its not
having been proposed as part of the gene-
ral estimates of the year, we may be able
next Session to make timely provision for
this necessary public work.
Mr. President and Honorable Gentlemen of the
Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the House of
Assembly;
When you meet again there are many
subjects which will earnestly call for your
attention and I would suggest that they
might be studied by you with great pro-
fit (luring the coming recess. Our Admin-
istrative Machinery and our Legislative prac-
tice require to be amended in many par-
ticulars-especially in those which concern
the management of financial affairs. Public
Education is not sufficiently provided for
and further legislation on this subject will
be required. The system under which li-
censes are granted for the sale of intoxi-
cating liquors requires careful study and
revision. The Police Establishments require
to be consolidated and extended so as to
have but one Police Force in these Islands.
Our Prisons require some improvements and
it is a matter of great regret that we have
not yet been able to establish a Public
Hospital for the treatment of the sick.
It is possible also that we may have
to reconsider the Act passed by you en-
titled Act No. 6 of 1877 An Act to pro-
vide Salaries for the Chief Justice and the
Attorney General. It is possible that that
Act may not be confirmed by Her Majes-
ty-and it would therefore only be prudent
on our part to consider before hand what
should be done here in the event of the
Act being disallowed. In connection with
this question I think it right to call your at-
tention to the numerous postponements I
have found it necessary to order in the Ses-
sions of the Court of General Assize. Ow-
ing to our late Chief Justice having thrown
up his appointment in Bermuda to accept a
better paid one in another Colony our Su-
preme Court has been deprived of the ser-
vices of its only professional Judge, and-
guided by the opinion of Her Majesty's At-
torney General and of the Honorable Execu-
tive Council-I have thought it necessary to
defer the Sessions of the Court from fortnight
to fortnight in the daily hope that every suc-
ceeding mail might bring me the announce-
ment of the appointment of a successor to Mr.
Wood'and of the probability of his speedy
arrival among us, but I regret to say that
in this respect my hopes and expectations
have been disappointed and I fear we may
be compelled to face the difficulty of open-
ing the Court without the presence of a
professional Judge. I have reason to believe
that. this grave inconvenience has arisen from
the difficulty experienced by the authorities
at the Colonial Office in getting any com-


petent person to accept the appointment of
Chief Justice of Bermuda for the small sa-
lary you have thought fit to provide for that
office, and I would earnestly impress upon
your consideration whether it is prudent or
wise thus to limit the range of selection in
providing an occupant for 'this important post
and thereby rendering it possible that it
might be filled by some' one of inferior
capacity and learning.
And now Gentlemen. I will bid you, in
your collective capacity, farewell for a time
-but during the coming recess I trust I
shall be able to see many of you in your
own neighbourhoods-and that I shall have
the aid of your local knowledge and ex-
perience in the efforts I shall make to be-
come personally acquainted with the re-
quirements and the wants of your several
localities.
