orders, arrived at St. Georges on the 8th instant, in dis-
tress.-On the 4th, was struck by a heavy sea which car-
ried away the wheel-house and crushed to. death, against
the cabin-house, the two unfortunate men who were at
the wheel.
The 'chr Althea, Captain Blackman, left Charleston
S. C., on the 23rd ultimo, laden with phosphate, bound
to Camden Maine. Shortly after leaving, encountered
heavy gales which strained the vessel, and set her leak-
ing, split all the sails and blew them away. On the 5th
pst., bore away and ran under bare poles until she

great bargain" on the palt of the authorities, it has
met with general approbation; the hope is enter-
tained that the lines will be shortly extended to sev-
eral towns that are in proximity to their country
terminus. The present rails do not exceed 24 miles
in length.
The grant of 2,000 a year for Telegraphic news,
is the right move, in the right direction, as it is aug-
ury of blessing to the Island."
The Bishop of Kingston, Jamaica, has announced
his intention to resign his see at an early date ; and
it has been suggested that the Rev. Canon Walshan
How, of England, be selected as his succ'ssor-
Strong objections are however made to Canon ,low.
MURRAY'S COMBINATION CIRCUS COMPANY, hence,
gave three performance s at the Island of St. Thom-
as on the 26th, 27th and 28th ultimo, and though
the weather was very unpropitious the programme
was said to be carried through very satisfactorily.
The Steamer Acadia, with the Circus Company, left
St. Thomas for Barbados on the 29th.
Lieut. Murray S. Day, died on board U. S. Cor-
vette Vandalia, whilst off the port of St. Thomas on

THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY OF BARBADOS IN A
QUANDARY.-On the 4th ult., at 11 o'clock, th day
and hour to which the House had been adjourned,
there not being a sufficient number of Members pre-
sent either to form a House or to authorise an ad-
journment, the Speaker had to hasien to G(vern-
ment House and obtain the Governor's permission
to authorise a call for the following day.
The consideration by the House of Assembly to
levy a tonnage duty on freight steamers to that Is-
land, has for the present been postponed.


reached Bermuda, when she took a pilot: was compelled
to anchor among the reefs to prevent running ashore.
After laying about 8 hours the wind shifted to the North
and finding it dangerous to remain in that position any
longer, weighed anchor, and when hove short, the vessel
began to strike the bottom and drifted, striking as she
went and finally brought up and filled with water.
The crew then abandoned her and came on shore in one
of the sail boats that had gone to her assistance.-
Agents, W. C. Hyland & Co.
On the 8th instant, Captain D. S. Kenney and
crew of Brigt. Herbert H. Raymond, of Weymouth,
N.S was landed at St. George's from the
Tern-schooner Lizzy Merry, Captain Merry. The
H. H. R. was from St. Eustatia, suddenly sprung
a leak and so rapidly filled with water that
the pumps became useless and the Captain and
crew had fully made up their minds for a watery
grave before the following morning, when they
sighted the L. M. who was also in distress, and after
,much trouble, the weather being rough, they were
,rescued and brought to Bermuda. The R. sank in
i so short a time that nothing could be saved from
her.
Thed Schr. Herbert E. Junr., from a Southern port,

THE ANTHRACITE COAL COMBINATION

An adjourned meeting of the Combination was
held at the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company's
Office, New York, on the 27th December, the fol-
lowing preamble and resolution was the result:
Whereas the psesent meeting convened for the
purpose of making some arrangements for the man-
agement of the Anthracite Coal trade for the year
1879, and full notice thereof has been given to the
representatives of the Lehigh region; and whereas
no representatives of the Lehigh Valley operators
or of the Lehigh Valley Coal Company is present;
and whereas it is utterly useless to attempt to make
any arrangement for the management of the trade
without the active co-operation of the Lehigh Valley
operators, including the Lehigh Valley Coal Com-
pany, Resolved-That the meeting now adjourn
sine die.
The Herald remarks :-" This is virtually the end
of the present Coal Combination. Notwithstand-
ing the gloomy outlock, several coal operators who
were approached on the subject yesterday, were of
opinion that the Coal Companies would come to-
gether in the beginning of the coming year." Their
financial article states that it is reported that the
Reading Company have sold the Lehigh Valley
some of their most valuable collieries and given
them the refusal of others, one million of Dollars for
what was valued at four millions of Dollars.
A Philadelphia Telegram in Sunday's paper says
"many prominent operators express the opinion
that there are some prospects of revising the com-
pact, and that until some additional action is taken
in. tUL, Jilection, prices will be kept as closely as
possible to present figures."
A Monday Philadelphia Telegram states that
President Gowen's interview with the Enquirer"
will be published next day. Gowen says he accepts
the result of Friday's meeting as an INDICATION that
there will be no combination for next year. He
does not think however that this need visit disas-
ter on the Coal trade of the State. He believes
that heavy business will be done at fair prices, but
possibly with more profit under a combination, and
sees no discouragement.
The Lehigh Valley operators were to hold a meet-
ing on New Year's Day, after which the Reading
operators would hold their meeting. "Meanwhile,"
says the Herald's Financial of Sunday, "Coal is
selling at about $2"50 per ton, and it is rumoured
the Delaware and Lackawanna will offer 100,000
to 150,000 tons at Auction shortly after the 1st of
January."
Cold .weather had set in, and this will increase
the consumption of coal. The above is the sub-
stance of the present situation.

dAMAICA.-The thirteenth Session of the Legisla-
tive Council was opened on Wednesday the llth
ult., by His Excellency the Governor, who intimat-
ed that the revenue for the past financial year ex-
ceeded the expenditure by 3V,554 This startling
information took most of the he nrable n.'.mb, rs, it
seems, by surprise-agreeable surprise, df course
which was followed up by congratulatory speeches
and a resolution, conveying their thanks to the Gov-
ernment,for having practised economy in tie manage-
ment of public affairs. The estimated revenue for
1878-79 is set down at 461,177 Is 8d. Thus, so
far as the financial condition of the country is con-
cerned there is nothing to fear besides, or rather
as a result of this healthy state of things, there is
not to. be any additional taxation.
The Government has purchased the Railway from
the private Company that hitherto held it, for the


men, dashed into Jackson and attacked Bill Strong's
clan. In the fight William and Daniel Freeman were
fatally wounded. Strong and his followers barricaded
themselves in a log house near the court house, and
during Monday night the place resounded with yells
and occasional shots.
On Tuesday Judge Burnett headed a party of 15
to help the sheriff and posse'io escort Little to jail.
He was incarcerated, and soon after a brother of Lit-
tle, and others, began an attack on Judge Burnett
and fired a volley of bullets at the Judge, killing him
instantly. Subsequently when a gang attempted to
break open the jail door, the brother of Little expost-
ulated, when he was shot dead. The sheriff and posse
hold a position in the court house yard commanding
the entrance to the jail. The forces number about
forty men on each side, armed with repeating rifles
and revolvers.
County Judge Randall has fled. The citizens dare
not come into the town even to attend the funeral of
Judg* Burnett, and the Governor has been appealed
to, to send a force to remove Little to the jail at Lex-
ington.

GOOD PASSAGE.-The Allan Steamer Sardinian,
which arrived at Halifax on the 19th Deer., made a
very quick passage. Her time from Queenstown to
St. Johns, Newfoundland, was 5 days, 8 hours, 30
minutes. She remained in St. Johns 9 hours and
45 minutes, and made the passage from that port to
Halitax in I day, 19 hours, 30 minutes. On the
12th she made 352 miles, on the 15th 355 miles, and
on the 19th 360 miles.
Japan is pushing ahead quitely but steadily with
hi.er industries, ana much faster than some people
will like. The large cotton mills and spinning
factory erected at Sakai several years ago are in
successful) operation. A visitor to these establish-
ments reports that the buildings are verysubstantial,
and that they are provided with good machinery.
In the factory there were employed about 150 bands.
In cofdsidering the conditions of successful foreign
trade, it will not do much longer for Western na-
tions to overlook what the people of the East are
doing for themselves, not only in Japan, but in
China and India.


LADY LAFFAN AT HOME."
We are requested to remind that next Thursday
is Lady Laffan's "At Home."

-~' We have been requested, by the Secretary or
the ITunt Club, to remind the Members and others, that
the Finish to-day will be at Mount Langton, and it is
hoped that as many as possible will be there.
FOOT BALL. The Honorary Secretary Football
Club, XIX (P. W. 0.) Regiment, requests us to
make it known, that Practice takes place Mondays
and Fridays at the Garrison CricketCGround, at 3 p.m.,
and that the Officers will be glad to see any of the gen-
tlemen in the neighbourhood who would like to join in
the game.

(From our Special Sporting Correspondent.)
SIR,-Now that the Xmas and New Year's festiv-
ities are happily over, and a few symptoms of gout
consequent thereon, have passed away without
doing much more than frighten old "Tally Ho,"
and make him take the pledge for a week (luckily
it was only given to Mrs. T. and was cancelled on
the third day), I have no excuse for keeping our
many friends ignorant of the excellent sport en-
joyed by the Hunt on Thursday last, the 9th inst.,
from Warwick Camp.
The Field was a large one-indeed I think by
far the largest this season-fifteen riders, including,
I am happy to say, a lady among their number,
making their appearance at the trysting place. I
noticed one or two fresh additions to the Hunt,
and shall be disappointed if I don't see them often,
.now that they have once experienced the pleasure
of a good gallop over our Bermudian hills.
You must let me describe the run in the present
tense, so that I may enjoy mentally, the pleasure
- of it again.
There is somewhat of a delay at the starting
point; the Officers at the Camp being hospitably
inclined, but refreshment before the run is a mis-
take I say.
Once off we pick up the scent at a low wall and
the manner in which one or two of the young
hounds take up the running over a pretty straight,
but somewhat rough line, evidently means business.
A short check brings the field together, but that
fine old Dog of War" is soon on the scent-those
old hounds are always steadier than the young
bloods of the pack-and with a "Hark to the
Colonel" from our Master, who had just come up
after a short but evidently satisfactory struggle at
the first fence with a new horse, away we go again,
led by that reckless adjutant, his chief remonstra-
ting in of course quite a gentle and paternal (?)
manner at the pace he would go down the hills, but
to no purpose. However a road soon brings us to
another check, when we have time to notice that
one rider, minus his hat, shows signs of having
been worsted in an encounter with some tree.
Turning northwards we descend into the valley
toward Warwick Presbyterian Church, then turn
sharp round past Mr. W. Frith'shouse, over the wall
into Mr. E. Harvey's, and out again over a formid-
able looking wall with a rail on the top. Here
one.animal, scorning his rider's notion of where to
take the fence, made a remarkably clever jump of
his own choosing between two cedars. More by
luck than good management thou wast not hung
up like Absolum, oh my gay Sapper.
Now all make straight for the Sand Hills, and
the tide being low, we have a good spin along the
beach. Leaving the shore, the scent takes us
straight to Captain Doe's, over two big walls near
his house, and a pretty turn round the hill below
Mr. 0. Middleton's brings us on to the main road.
Passing through Mr. Wild's grounds we turn down
Mr. C. Gosling's field, which had been kindly
lent by that gentleman for the finish.
Three small artificial fences (by the way, would
not a finish over some natural obstacle be a pleas-
ant variation) as usual had been put up for the
amusement of a very large assemblage of Rank
and Fashion, and over these we all scurry, old
Dandy (the old fop was determined to attract some
notice) giving his rider a decided crumpler" to
add to the fun. Another rider too makes acquaint-
ance with mother earth, and the sport is over.
After the Hunt all adjourned to Mr. Ingham's
house, where ample preoration had been made to
satisfy the material wants of all.
The young people had evidently made ul their
minds for something more however-and when
I left were dancing with a VIGOR that fairly made
me lament my GREY hair.
Wood my old timbers were a little less stiff, but
I fear no Carpenter can help me now.
Next Tuesday there will be a run from the
Flatts to Mount Langton. The line is a favorite
one, and doubtless there will be a large number of
riders out, among whom I trust will be
TALLY HO.
Hamilton, January 11, 1879.

LAWLESSNESS IN KENTUCKY.-A despatch states
the town of Jackson, Ky., is in the hands of two fac-
tions of a mob. Jason Little killed his wife some
time ago, and the county judge, Burnett, committed
him to jail without bail, and sent him to Lexington
for safe keeping. Last Saturday the Sheriff came to
Lexington for Little, and, although confronted by his
own deputy, who is a brother of Little, took the
murderer under a strong guard to Jackson, arriving
there on Monday. A letter from Jackson says the
town is entirely in the hands of the mob
Judge Randall instructed the grand jury, Monday,
and the court adjourned till afternoon. During the
afternoon John Aikman, with a dozen armed horse-

this shows 1,811 more deaths in 1878 than in 1877..

The total population of the globe according to
Bebm & Wagner's Bevolkerung der Erde, fifth pub-
lication just issued is 1,439,145,300, distributed
thus over the great land divisions : Europe, 312,-
398,480; Asia, 831,000,000; Africa, 205,219,500;
Anstralasia and Polynesia, 4,411,800 ; and America
86,116,000. Since the first publication of Bhem
& Wagner's statistics, the estimated population
of the earth shows an increase of 15,000,000 and
this is assigned in part to the more elact censuses
now obtainable, and in part to natural growth.
Sir W. Armstrong uses the electric light in the
picture gallery of his residence at Craigside, -about
18 miles from Newcastle-on-Tyne. There is an
outfall from a lake a mile and a half from the house,
and he uses the water to drive a turbine which
communicates motions to a dynamo-electrib'ma-
chine. A stout copper wire conveys the electricity
to the house, where it is converted into light in a Si-
emens lamp. Of course, a second wire is employed to
take the return current. Although he likes the light
well enough, and although the power of the primm
mother costs him nothing, Sir William complains
of the expense of the entire apparatus. He intends,
therefore, to employ an electric-en'ine to be con-
nected with the wires when light is not required*
and use the motive power thus obtainable for do-
mestic purposes.
Specie payments were resumed by the United
States Government on the 1st instant. Gold was
paid out for Greenbacks, and thereafter Custom-
[louse duties can be paid with the latter.
The National and first National Bank' at Port
Jervis, N. Y., have given notice that after January
6. until further notice, no trade dollars or subsidiary
coins will be received by them, except at a discount
of 2 per cent.

THE Pi'ONOGRAPH.
A Mr. W. E. Chapman was at Jamaica exhibit
ing that wonderful instrument, the- Phonograph ,
which has gained for the inventor, Professor Edi-
son, of New York, world wide"renown. The fol.
lowing description of the instrument and its modus
operandi we find in the Jamaica Gleaner of the 24th
December:
The instrument is very simply constructed. It con"
sists of a cylinder of brass, about 4 or 5 inches in
length and Fomething less in diameter, spirally
grooved, which is rotated by turning a handle, at
one end of its axis. The other end of the axis of
the cylinder has grooves exactly corresponding to
the grooves on the cylinder. Above the cylinder
is an adjustment for holding a needle. The needle
is in the centre of a metal diaphragm and the
diaphragm is fixed in a small framework on the end
of a movable armature, so arranged that the needle
can be placed in contact with the cylinder or rather
with the tin foil which is wrapped around the cy-
linder, and on which the registrations are made.
By turning the handle spoken of, the cylinder is
rotated, and the spiral grooves on one end of its
axis, cause the cylinder to travel in its frame-work
to the right or to the left, according as the handle
is turned forward or backward.-When it is de-
sired to phonograph a number of words, a piece of
tin foil is wrapped about the cylinder; the needle
is adjusted in contact with the foil; a mouthpiece
is screwed into the framework of the diaphragm the
words are spoken in a loud tone into the mouth-
piece, and at the same time the cylinder is rotated
by turning the handle. The vibrations of the voice
are communicated to the diaphragm which moves
the needle, and as the needle moves it indents the
tin foil. It is thus that the sounds are registered.
They are reproduced by a reversal of the process.
The cylinder is turned the other way, and each in-
dentation of the tin foil as it meets the needle,
gives to the needle the same movement that it (the
needle) bad when it made the indentation; the
diaphragm is in turn thrown into the same state of
vibration that it was in, when it moved the needle;
and as that state of vibration corresponded to the
sound communicated through the mouthpiece, it
follows that that sound must, by this reversed pro-
cess be reproduced. The Exhibitor began his il-
lustrations, by saluting the instrument thus, hilloa,
Mister' phonograph, how do you do?' He then
turned the handle the other way, and the words
came out pretty distinctly, but in a low tone.
Still the effect of bearing a man's voice reproduced
in such a marvellous way was startling, and the
audience greeted this first manifestation with loud
applause. The second experiment was better,
Mary had a little corn,
Upon her little toe,
And every place that Mary went
That corn was sure to go,
was repeated by the instrument with astonishing
fidelity; every emphasis and inflection being cor-
rectly reproduced. The only difference between
Mr. Chapman's voice and the Phonograph's imita-
tion of it, seemed to be in the quality and volume
of the tone; in other respects the reproduction
seemed to be exact. And so the exhibition went
on u -! about a quarter to ten; Mr. Chapmanf
producing more startling effects at nearly
every successive experiment. A cornet player
from the Orchestra played a few bars from
"Yankee Doodle" into the instrument, and the
music was correctly brought out. He also played
a few bars from Britannia the Pride of the Ocean"
but the imitation was not so good. Mr. Chapman
explained that it was necessary that the foils
should be kept perfectly dry and that he had found
it very difficult to, keep them so in weather like
that of the last few days.

YELLOW JACK AT ST. THOMAS.
Tlo following letter was read at the meeting of
the Board of Health yesterday :
UNITED STATES CONSULATE, )
ST. THOMAS, W.I., December 7, 1878. I
To the President of the Board of Health, New York.
SiR,-I have to report that yellow fever is quite
prevalent at this port. To prevent being quaran-
tined against, the authorities deny the existence of
yellow fever, calling it typhus, intermittent, &c.
Until quite recently it has been confined to the
town, but there are now some cases from the ship-
ping. It is also reported to be quite epidemic in
Porto Rico. How true this is I cannot say. It is
impossible to estimate the number of cases, as no
mortality report is permitted to be published. I
would not consider that vessels, especially steamers,
stopping here but a short time would become in-
fected. I cannot give clean bills of health how-
ever, and many vessels object to taking any.
I am, sir, your obedient servant,
!V. O. SMITHr, U. S. Consul

We hear that Lieut Colonel Deane, 1/19th Regi-U
ment is about to retire on half pay.
Lieutenant G. R. MacMullen, 46th Regt, left by
the "Alpha," on Thursday last, for Halifax, to go
through a course of Garrison Instruction.
The following promotion appeared in the London V
Gazette of December 17th, 1878:-Captain Charles
Shea Hunt, 19th Foot, to be Major. Dated 16th
September, 1878.

We are fearful that our growing provision crops
have suffered materially by the late high winds
and heavy rain falls; and we have noticed that
in some places the blight has fallen on potatoco"
which before were seemingly doing well and to add
to these troubles on the forenoon of Tuesday last a
heavy storm of hail passed over the Islands from "W .
N. W. to S. S. E.-very limited in width at firs'
but widening as it progressed-doing a at
of damage. We have been assured y
gathered some of the hail that some of the
were quite as large as nutmegs. At one point in,
the track of the storm we are informed t t th
Thermometer fell to 350 Fahrenheit.
It is reported that 14,000 persons are out of e4
ployment at Blackburn, England, and that the dia.
tress in Manchester,Preston and Sheffield is with.
out precedent. t

We understand that the Revd. Bruce Mackay, o'
Novascotia, has been appointed to the living of Sandy,
and Southampton Parishes in these Islands.

Mount Langton, 8th January, 1879.
(No. 41.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to bring to the no-
tice of the Honorable House of Assembly the cir-
cumstance that the Resolve No. 14 of 1874-pro-
viding for the payment of the care-taker of the
Quarantine Station at Nonsuch Island-only ex-
tended to the 31st December, 1875, and that since
that date no legal provision has been made for the
payment of the care-taker.
The care-taker, however, has been paid and the
vouchers for the payments appear to have been
passed without question by the Audit Committees
of the Legislature.
On a pay list, however, for the payment of this
care-taker being presented for audit to the Audit
Board the Audit Board at once discovered that the
continuance :of the payment was unauthorized by
Law and therefore declined to pass the account.
The Governor trusts that the Honorable House
of Assembly will pass a Resolve-sanctioning the
continuance of this necessary payment from the
31 st December, 1875.
Mount Langton, 8th January, 1879.


The rule having been suspended,
The Resolve providing for the completion of* St.
David's Lighthouse was read a 3rd time and passed.

THE PLANET VULCAN.
To the Editor of the Bermuda Royal Gazette.
DARn SIR,-In an article in the weekly edition of
the Times of August 30th, 1878 (which I read only
a few days since) concerning the discovery of the
Planet Vulcan, I find the following sentence:-
The excess of motion left unaccounted for was such
that one complete revolution of the azis (or technically
one complete circuit of the perihelion) would be made.
.. Now, Sir, I am no astronomer, but I
am sufficiently fond of the subject to desire to be
correctly informed, and I confess I am at a loss to
understand this passage. It seems to me that it is
usual to speak of ROTATION on the axis and of RE-
voLvTrlON in the orbit of a planet. In any case the
Author of the Article to my mind appears to have
got a little" mixed," for a solid body turning on its
own aris can scarcely be said to perform a circuit
round that axis, although (speaking with extreme
philosophical rigour) the centre of that body really
does not rotate.
Granting this POINT to the Author, how ON EARTS
can a revolution, a circuit, or a rotation round this
non-rotating point be "technically" the same thing
as a circuit of the perihelion ? !
Perihelion means a point in a planet's orbit, viz.,
the one towards, (or nearest to) the Sun.
Now it seems to my finite comprehension, that
were a planet to make a CIRcuIT of this point, it
would astonish astronomers as much as a cricket-


ball struck forwards would astound beholders were
', while in mid air, after passing over the bowler's
.iead, suddenly without being touched, to execute
a retrograde motion and return to the striker.
If I am wrong I shall be glad to be set right by
any of your astronomical readers.
Will you therefore kindly insert this, and oblige
yours sincerely, W. A. M.

FOOTBALL.
XIX. (r. w. o.) REGIMENT V. HAMILTON.
We have much pleasure in chronicling the first of?
what we trust may prove to be, a series of Football
Matches that are to be played in these Islands dur-
ing the present Winter. The game is one which
presents (in our estimation) far greater interest to
the spectator than its sister game of cricket, and
therefore will, no doubt, attract a larger number of
lookers on; and the comparatively short duration
of the contest, and the greater vivaciLy and agility
required in its playing, help materially to keep
alive the interest in the eyes of those assembled,
and will afford a pleasant rendezvous for those who
have but an hour or two to spare from the business
of the day.
The opening match was played on Friday, the
10th instant, on the Garrison Cricket Ground at
Prospect, between twelve officers and men of the
above named Regiment and an equal number of
Civilians, and resulted in an easy victory for the
former. The rain, which fell heavily and unceas-
ingly during the earlier part of the day, was, how-
ever, blown away by a strong north-westerly wind
which sprung up about two o'clock, but unfortu-
nately left several nasty sloppy hollows over the
ground, which rendered the foothold of the runner
exceedingly precarious. The visitors lost the toss
for choice of goals, and Capt. Handley chose the
lower goal as more favored by the wind, and left
the Hamiltonians to start the ball. Both sides en-
tered eagerly into the play and the ball was for a
few minutes kept alive in the centre of the ground,
but gradually the superior skill and confederacy of
the home team drove the ball steadily towards the
civilians' goal, and about ten minutes after the
commencement of the play Lieut. Maloney, by a
brilliant rush, ably seconded by his brothers of the
"centre," secured the first goal. On changing
goals (which we must inform the uninitiated is done
every time a goal is scored), the Hamiltonians felt
the benefit of the wind, and succeeded in keeping
the ball in play, without, however, being fortunate
enough to secure any advantage until half-time was
called, but on several occasions the ball was in dan-
gerous vicinity to the Hamilton goal and must have
inevitably been driven between the posts but for
the skill and dexterity of Mr. R Gray, the goal
keeper, whose services in defence of his goal were
continually called for, and who was ever equal to
the occasion. Goals were again changed at half-
time, and soon after Lieut. Maloney again secured a
goal. The game continued with little change of
fortune, although Messrs. Scott Gilbert, W. Cooper,
E. Walker and F. Ward did their best to retrieve
the honor of the day, and displayed at times some
brilliant dashes of play. For the home team, Lt.
Phayre rendered valuable service to his side, whilst
Lieuts. Eden, Fearon, Maloney and Davies were
ever in the van, and did much to insure the success
they achieved. When time was called the XIX
had scored 4 goals, 3 of which were kicked by
Lieut. Maloney, and 1 by Lieut. Davies, to their
opponents' nothing.
Despite the unauspicious aspect of the weather
and the dampness of the grass under foot, there
was a goodly gathering of spectators, amongst
whom we were glad to see Lady Laffan, Miss Laf-
fan, Dr. and Mrs. Sinclair, and many of the lady
residents of the town. The gallant officers of the
Regiment entertained both their friends and oppo-
nents with their usual hospitality, and the kindness
and cordiality which they displayed in the arrange-
ment for the comfort and convenience of their visit-
ors we feel sure was thoroughly appreciated.
