12 St. Mary Axe, London, E. C., which firm has
depots at Gibraltar, Malta, and all the principal
garrison stations in India, China, Japan, and the
Cape.
We have seen testimonials given to Mr.
Bingham in regard to the highly efficient manner
in which he has carried out all the necessary ar-
rangements for the supply of the several Canteens
and Messes of the 19th Regiment, lately arrived in
Bermuda. Special favorable mention is made as to
the prices and quality of the articles supplied, and
also as to the general satisfaction Mr. Bingham has
given in all the business transactions that have been
concluded.
We hear that the well known house of Messrs.
Gosling Bros., have been appointed to represent
Messrs. Atkins & Co., in Bermuda, and have no
doubt will ably carry out all their wishes. We
may also mention that Messrs. Atkins & Co. are
ready at all times to perform any Banking or Fi-
nancial arrangements for Regiments stationed
abroad.

ST. JOHN, N.B., RAISING FROM ITS ASHES.
A friend writing to us from St. John, New
Brunswick, says:-" This city is being rebuilt mar-
velously, and brick and greystone will mainly, in the
business part of the city, take the place of wood.
The means have come from three sources. 1st, La-
tent or reserved capital of owners or else capital
formerly employed in marine risks lying idle in
the recent depression in trade. 2nd, from paid up
Fire Insurance. 3rd, from foreign sources on
bonds and mortgages. The large number of
carpenters, hardstone masons, bricklayers, &c.,
&c., have come from Canada, Nova Scotia,
in part, but mainly are skilled workmen from
Boston, Portland and New York. Activity is
everywhere manifest while the mild weather and
entire absence from snow is enabling the work of
renovating St. John to make a great show. Whole
streets are rebuilt with entire brick warehouses four
or five stories high, the result of the energy in their
own cause of the business men; but, the Public
Buildings, which must be the work of the Domin-
ion of Canada, have not yet been commenced.
Wonderful mixtures exist for want of room. The
Western Union Telegraph Office prosecutes its
work in a wholesale dry goods establishment, and
Morse's tape like paper is rolling off beside a wider
roll of carpet. The Bank of New Brunswick trans-
acts its business beneath the Calvin Church (Pres-
byterian.) The Public Squares are covered with
box like habitations for the poor, or temporary
warehouses bearing businesssigns which used to be
displayed on four story establishments. Still the
city is as healthy as usual and its population appa-


rently very contented, many expressing great thank-
fulness that" it is no worse. "The fact that there is
plenty of work going on and all who will can be.
employed, tends much toward this, and St. John,
like many other cities, will be greater after her
r fir<' than before.

An Inquest was held at St. George, on the 12th
and 13th instant, before Denis Tucker, Esqr., Coro-
ner, on view of the body of Samuel Robinson, late
Gunner Royal Artillery, who was found dead on
the morning of the 12th on the lands of the Hon.
A. J. Musson It was found from evidence that
death resulted from poisoning by cyanide of potas-
psum, taken by deceased during a fit of insanity.

years ago.
THEY WILL PAY.
The New York Herald of the 25th November,
after reciting the particulars of the late Halifax
Commission, the concession of the fisheries, etc.,
says :-
This privilege was. conveyed to us, and a ques-
tion arose as to what it was worthb-what we should
pay for it. One of the arbitrations was created to
determine that point. It has put the price at $5-
600,000, and the payment is due within one year,
and will be made, without grimace and as a matter
of course.
The Boston Globe says :-
It is always disagreable to have it decided that
we must pay a heavy bill which we had disputed,
but if a tribunal to which we have agreLd to leave
the question decides against us, the only manly
way is to pay up without grumbling.
The New York Graphic says :-
The Government of the United States agreed to
the creation of a commission of arbitration, and it
is bound to abide by its decision. Had the decision
been on the other side, we would have expected
Canada to pay without a word, and, now that it is
against us, we must do the same. A nation, no
more than a private individual, can afford to say;
"I like arbitration as long as it decides in my
favor, but when it decides against me I do not
like it."

R.N, as a resident magistrate on the French shore.
He was on the Newfoundland station three years
since in command of H. M. S. Woodlark. The
Newfoundlander speaks of him as well fitted by. his
knowledge of the place and questions in dispute, as,
well as by his practical ability and general intelli-
gence, to fill so important and difficult a post. The
Imperial Government pays half his salary, the New-
foundland Government the balance. The functions
he is to exercise are limited to those of a magiste-
rial nature and to such as pertain to the collection
of Customs. The paper we have quoted expresses
satisfaction with the arrangement. -Halifax, N.S.,
Morning Chronicle, December. 11.

It is related that the Sultan has had a strange
dream; that the Prophet Mohammed appeared to
him and warned him that the safety of his religion
and throne depended upon his making peace.
Thereupon the Sultan consulted the first astrologer,
and lo! the astrologer had seen the same vision.
It is said further, that the Sheik-ul-Islam, as if to
prepare the Turks for peace, has had the story of
the dream related in the mosques. All which-if
it be true-would seem to imply that the Sultan is
a careful and a provident person.

A New BOOK
Of Rare Originality and Beauty,
Entitled,


Work Days
Or,


of God ;


O013 OB AND TES BZI3M.
By the Revd. Prof. HERBERT W. MORRIS,
A. M., D. D.
IT has received the endorsement 7and unquali.
field commendation of a large number of the
highest literary authorities in the country to
whose criticism it has been subjected.
The subject of the book is the grandest and
most profoundly interesting that can engage
the science or occupy the mind of men-THE
CREATION OF THE WORLD. In the fore part of
the Work, the Author, in a style clear as it is
beautiful, yet with conscientious fidelity to facts,
relates the most wonderful, and thrilling and in-
structive history that has ever been given to man
to peruse THE EVENTFUL HISTORY OF THE
WORLD BrFOtE ADAM. The Work is written
in a popular and readable style. Abstruse terms
are avoided, yet the laws of Science are all
stated with a clearness and exactness that
amount almost to surprise. While it delights
the Student and Scholar, it is specially adapted
to the understanding of the general reader.
The Author, being both a learned Scientist
and skilful interpreter of the Word ot God,
clearly reconciles Science to the Inspired Word,
without any sacrifice to either the truths of the
former or the literal purity and beauty of the
latter. And, as one learned critic has said:
" Here Scripture and Science meet together;
and Genesis and Geology kiss each other."
The Work abounds with beautiful full-page
Illustrations by the best European and American
artists, w which together with its clear type and
softly tinted page, render it altogether a volume
of unusual attraction. It contains over 700
pages, including Engravings.

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

" Eau" of Dr. Holtz for

1tiHIS WATER is of an entirely vegetable
composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. IIoLTz's Hair Dye has not the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to the hair an unnaturally vulgar color.
Guided by his medical knowledge and his
great chemical experiences, DR. HOLTZ has
succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give
the richest balsamic dyeing and curative essen-
ces, and it is by this study that he succeeded to
compound a dye which may be styled as the
Regenerator by excellence of the chevelure.

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Hamilton, Tuesday, December 18, 1877.


ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL OF
THE 27TH NOVEMBER.

H. M. S. Argus, Commander Harris, in 5 days
from Halifax, with the English Mail of the 27th
ultimo, arrived at the Naval Yard on Sunday even-
ing last. We have been kindly favored by friends
with Halifax papers of the 11th instant in addition
to our own files. The Argus experienced very
rough weather on the passage.

FROM THE SEAT OF WAR IN THE EAST.

The latest intelligence is of vast importance, and
is to the following effect:-
"PLEVNA IS IN THE HANDS OF THE RUSSIANS"
OsMAN PACHA SERIOUSLY WOUNDED."
TOTAL COLLAPSE OF THE TURKISH CAMPAIGN."
VIENNA, Dec. 10.-The Political Correspondence
states that negotiations are pending between Servia
and the Russian headquarters relative to the Ser-
vian plan of operations. Servia will place 84 bat-
talions in the field. The outbreak of war on Servia's
part is now only a question of days.
LONDON, Dec. 10.-Renter's telegram company
has received the following : Bucharest, 9"40 p.m.
-Plevna is now in the hands of the Russo-Rouma-
nian army."
The Agence Russo makes the following announce-
ment: Osman Pacha attempted to break through
in the direction of Widdin. He was attacked in
front and rear, and compelled to lay down his arms
after a glorious struggle, in which he was seriously
wounded. All with one voice praise his conduct."
LoNDON, Dec. 10.-The Times urges that the
moment has now arrived when mediation between
Russia and Turkey is possible, and it is to be hoped
that the British Government will use all efforts to
that effect.
LONDON, Dec. 11.-The Times this morning says,
Osman Pacha's surrender is not merely of a con-
siderable army and good hold, but a final collapse
of the whole Turkish campaign, and practical con-
quest of Bulgaria. The general expectation of
Europe has been a mistake. The Turks have been
as completely defeated as the Austrians were at
Sadowa in 1866 and the French at Sedan in 1870.
The Turks refused the conditions which Europe
and England offered, and must now take the conse-
quences, and sooner or later submit to forfeiture of
their authority if not of their territory in Europe.
No European power-England least of all-will
interfere. The moment for peace has come. We
are in hopes our Government will commend this to
both belligerents.
The strike of puddlers in two large iron works at
Sheffield, which lasted six weeks, during which
time many trade outrages have been committed,
has ended, the men consenting to a reduction of
wages.
ROME, Dec. 10.-The Carlist General Lezarraga
died here to-day.
PARIS, Dec. 10.-A corrected account of Duke
DeAudiffret Pasquier's interview with President
MacMahon, shows that the latter said, "Not hav-
ing succeeded in forming a Cabinet acceptable to
the majority of the Chamber he would constitute
one to suit the majority of the Senate. If the Sen-
ate refused to accept he would resign rather than
renew negotiations with Dufaure." The Duke
said he had been sent in the name of the Constitu-
tionalists to make a last appeal to the Marshal to
save the country from extreme measures. He was
in despair at the rejection of his appeal, and
trembled to think of the frightful responsibility the
Marshal assumed."
The Temps says the Constitutionalists are much
irritated at President MacMahon's rejection of their
appeal.
It is asserted that the new Ministry will not
interfere in the debates in the Chamber, but will
demand its dissolution at the end of the month.
Although it is reported that a new Ministay
has been constituted, it is not expected to be gaz-
etted till to-morrow.

THE WAR.-RAGusA, Dec. 9.--The inhabitants
of Scutari and Albanian chiefs have telegraphed to
Constantinople for aid against the Montenegrins,
declaring that if the request is disregarded they
will solicit protection from Italy.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Dec. 9.-Intelligence has been
received from Elena that operations between that
place and Tirnova have been suspended because of
the bad weather. Great preparations are being
made to defend Elena in case of a Russian attempt
to recapture it.
LONDON, Dec. 9.-A special to the Daily News
from Kars contains the following:-"Operations
against Erzeroumni may be postponed a fortnight.
No attempt will probably be made to establish a
strict blockade, on account of the inclemency of the
weather, but it is supposed that communication
with Trrbizonde 'till shortly be cut as a Russian
division is marching in that direction."
The Pest's Berlin correspondent says that the
Czar has given notice of his intention to return to
St. Pelersbutah between Dec. 23rd and Jan. 5th.
LONDON, Dec. 10.--Suleiman Pasha passed
through Rasgrad on Friday en route to Rustchuk.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Deer. 10.-It is reported that
the Council of State has determined that Christians
shall hereafter be eligible to Governorships and
other administrative functions of Turkish Provinces.
It is b' lived that the Speech from the Throne on
opening ot Parliament will announce this resolution.
BOGOT, D)eer. 9.-Up to 3 o'clock this p.m. the
situation is unchanged. Russians occupy Slavitza
and Jakowitza, Turks confronting them.


CONSTANTINOPLE, Dec. 10.-Suleiman Pasha has
returned to Ambledge on Tirnova road. The re-
port that Servian troops crossed frontier into Tur-
key originated from the confusion of boundaries
caused by the destruction of land marks after Tur-
ko-Servian war in 1876.
The Egyptian Contingent in Turkish army will
be increased by 12,000 infantry, a thousand cavalry,
and four batteries of artillery.
SPAIN, LONDON, Decr. 10. The "Times'"
Madrid despatch says all the newspapers, including
opposition, approve of King Altonzo's marriage
with Duke Montpensier's daughter, and extol the
good qualities and beauty of future queen. All the
foreign courts have also expressed their approval.
Senior Astrabo, captured president of Cuba, has
arrived at Cadiz, and was conducted as prisoner to
fortress at Barcelonia.U
GENERAL NEWS.-VIENNA, Dec. 9.-Before the
foreign affairs committee of the Hungarian delega-
tion yesterday, Count Andrassy denied that Aus-
tria was acting under the influence of Germany, and
declares that no power in Europe could undertake
a settlement of the Eastern question, without co-op-
eration of Austro-Hungary.

Farn ers and all who have charge of cows may
learn a lesson from the following anecdote which
we clip from an exchange : A market-gardener had
a very fine cow that was milked week after week by
hired men. He observed that the amount of but-
ter he carried to market weighed about a pound
more on each alternate week. He watched the
men, and tried the cow after they had finished
milking, but always found that there was no milk
left in the teats. He finally asked the Scotch girl
who took care of the milk it she could account for
the difference. "W hy, yes," she says," When Jim
milks he says to the old cow, 'So! my pretty
muley, so!' But when Sam milks he hits her on
the hip with the edge of the pail, and says,' H'ist,
you old brute! '"

and requires no change in the daily habits. Al-
ready some hundreds of thousands of bottles are

dict that when its superiority over all others is
universally recognized, its sale will extend to mil-

Is there a startling disclosure ahead in the Tich-
borne case ? He has been removed from Dartmoor
to Portsea, a prison where the discipline is much
milder, the official reason assigned being that he
got on badly with his keepers at the former place of
imprisonment. As it is not the custom of the pris-
on authorities to remove a convict -o a more pleas-
ant abode because he misconducts himself in jail, ru-
mors are afloat in England that something awkward
has come out affecting the case. A London corres-
pondent says: "I have always been an utter disbe-
liever in the possibility of the Claimant being Sir
Roger. But no candid person can deny that thesub-
sequent'careers of Mrs. Pittendreigh and Mrs. Mina
Jury do throw grave doubts on their credibility, and
to the consequent value of the testimony which iden-
tified the Claimant with the Wapping butcher; while
if Clarke should be shown to have been open to
bribery, it would be very difficult to resist a de-
mand for a commutation of the convict's sentence."
This Chief Inspector Clarke, is on trial on a
charge of accepting bribes with the other de-
tectives, and betraying official secrets to aid the
swindlers who had retained him. By the way, Mr.
Justice Ropes has refused another application by
Mr. Cobbet for a writ of shabea corpus to release
the Claimant.

DIPHTHERIA.

The ravages of diptheria on the American conti-
nent have been so great that if medical science can
do anything to arrest them, it would seem that
there ought to be a general conference of physicians
on the subject. The following comes to us through
the Scientific American and we givs it for what it
may be wo, th. Our contemporary says:-
Dr. E. N. Chapman, of Brooklyn has discovered
an antidote to the poison of diptheria, by which the
percentage of deaths is reduced to less than one in
fifty. Statistics show that the percentage of recov-
eries in cases treated under the usual practice is
about thirteen, or eighty-seven out of a hundred
sufferers succumb to the fell disease.
Diptheria first appeared in this country in 1858,
Dr. Chapmen, in 1859, lost several cases, and be-
came distrustful of the regular methods. He had
been using alcohol in the cure of ship-fever, and
he determined, though contrary to all rules, to try
it in diptheria. To his surprise, several of his pa-
tients recovered. He then tried quinia, and found
it acted well but not so quickly. At last he settled
on a combination of the two, alcohol and quinia,
and with these remedies he claims that diphtheriais
more amenable to treatment than many common
diseases. In an epidemic such as diphtheria, all are
affected by the morbific agent; but a few only yield
to it. Mature, vigorous persons have vitality
enough to resist the disease. Children and weakly
adults are its usual subjects. Dr. Chapman con-
siders that there is, almost always, super-added a
local and direct exciting cause, such as detective,
exercise, improper diet, dark rooms, damp houses
imperfect ventilation, and poisonous emanations
from decomposing filth in privies, cesspools, sewer
pipes, etc. To such agencies the strongest constitu-
tion will soon succumb. The blood being deterio-
rated, its crisis is impaired and its vitality lowered ;
and then the sympathetic nerves, failing to receive
due stimulus, waver in their efforts to carry on the
animal functions.
"All local treatment," he says, "is worse than
useless. It exhausts the nerve force and induces
greater injection of the blood vessels, thus favoring
the exudation."
Alcohol neutralizes the diphtheritic poison, sets
free the nerves of animal life, subdues the fever and
inflammation, destroys the pabulum that sustains
the membrane, cuts short the disease, conquers its
sequel, and shields other members of the family
from an attack. Upon the subsidence of the fever,
as is usually the case in from twenty-four to thirty-
six hours, a prudent secretion begins to loosen the
membrane, and soon thereafter to detach it in flaky
ragged fragments. This process may take place,
and recovery be possible, even when the larnyx and
trachea are implicated. The membrane is seldom
renewed when this secretion is maintained by a
steady use of the remedy. Alcohol is as antagonis-
tic to diphtheria as belladonna to opium, or quinia
to malaria. Like any other antidote, it must be
given promptly at the outset, or otherwise its po-
tency will be lessened, perhaps lost altogether."
Alcohol does not act as a stimulant, nor induce
any of its ordinary effects. Enough may be given
to cause profound intoxication in health, and yet
there exists no signs of excitement or odor in the
breath."
Quinia is an efficient ailoy to alcohol. It ener-
gizes the ganglionic nervous system, and thus en-
ables the organism to right itself and resume its
function.
Dr. Chapman sustains his position by citing nu-
merous cases in which this treatment was success-
ful. He states that, in his long experience, he only
knew of one case where a drunkard had diphtheria.
He generally gives the alcohol in the form of
whiskey.

THE MARCH OF CIVILIZATION.

Some forms of barbarism persist unreasonably
amidst the great refinements of comfort in which
modern civilization abounds. Not the least of
these is the still survivimg habit of infliction on
men, women, and children nauseous pills, potions,
and draughts for ordinary aperient purposes. Many
still remember with a shudder the frequent penance
of doses of Epsom salts, castor oil, aloes, pills, and
other horrors of the medicine chest. Their use has
altogether died out in Germany and France. and is
disappearing more slowly in English-speaking
countries. Professor Silver, M.D., Physician and
Lecturer on Medicine at Charing Cross Hospital,
sums up recent progress by observing that 'the
Hunyadi Janos aperient water is as great an im-
provement on all other waters*of the kind as they
were on Epsom salts In proof of this, the experi-
ence and testimony of all the great European names
in medicine may be cited. In Germany, the illus-
trious Liebig describes it as the richest in aperient
salts:' and Virchow as 'the most prompt and
valuable.' Baron Scanzoni, the great European
authority on treatment of women and children,
says: 'I use now no other aperient than this; it is
far superior to all others.' This verdict is endorsed
by the great American practitioners in the treat-
ment of women and children, Marion Sims and
Fordyce Barker. The authors of the there great
modern text books of medicine in England, Profes-
sors Aitken, F.R.S., T. L. Brunton, F.R.S. (St.
Bartholomew's), and Roberts (University College
Hospital,) describe it as 'most palatable and effi-
cient,' 'preferred to Friedricbsball and Pulina,'
and entitled to universal use as an ordinary aperi-.
ent in billiousness, constipation, indigestion, head-
ache, and all the forms of disease and disorder of
th, system,in which it is desirable to promote mild,
prompt and efficient aperient action. A wine-glass
full in the morning makes a palatable dose, which
