ST. GEORGES VERSUS HAMILTON.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.,
SiR,-In an article in the Bermuda Colonist
of the 15th instant, over the signature of John T.
Bourne, is an assertion that "H. M. Sloop-of-War
Eclipse, in coming through Timlin's Narrows took
bottom and left there several sheets of copper." I
have it from undoubted authority (an Officer who
was on board at the time), that the assertion is in-
correct, and nothing of the kind occurred! I be-
lieve she was brought through by a St. George's
Pilot, and Mr. Bourne might easily satisfy himself
by referring to the said Pilot for the truth, and
should then retract his assertion, with a suitable
apology to Captain Erskine and his officers, and to
the Pilot in charge.
January 18, 1879.
If a knowledge of other countries and a study of
the manners and customs of foreign nations teach
us to appreciate what we have at home, they like-
wise form the best cure of that national conceit and
want of sympathy, with which we are too apt to
look on all that is strange and foreign.
From our Special Sporting Correspondent. *
The excitement and sweet recollections of the de-
lightful dance at Mount Langton after the finish of
the Hunt last Tuesday has well nigh driven
every remembrance of the run from the Flatts out
of my head, but before describing the really capital
galop which we had, I think I will cast forward a
bit and tell you about the Finish, the kind recep-
tion we received from His Excellency the Governor
and Lady Laffan, and of the most enjoyable dance
I have had for many a day.
At about 3"45 we rode on to the Mount Langton
grounds through the gate at the top of the hill;
thence turning down the slope to the North Shore
the Master led us at full galop down the hill over
the little bank and ditch and turning into the
straight we finished over the well known wall and
made fences, nearly all the horses clearing the
jumps in first rate style. There is always a large
gathering at Government House on a Hunt day
but this time the prospects of a dance had, I think,
drawn even more there, especially of the fair sex
who looked as if they would commence dancing
there and then, if a move towards the house was not
made at once. After a few of the usual questions
and remarks on all sides, we were invited to wend
our way upwards, Arrived at the house I had the
pleasure of being presented, for the first time, to
Sir Robert and Lady Laffan. Moving towards the
dancing room I met the Master, who told me in his
cheery voice, to get a card and go and dance.
For a man of my age I thought not, but on hearing
the inspiring strains of the fine string band of the
46th Regiment, I could not resist the temptation,
and recollecting that Mrs. T. had been left at home
I was able to do what I liked, so taking the hint I
attacked all the young ladies of my acquaintance
for dances, and e'er many minutes were over I had
my arm round a slender waist and was flying
round the room as active as any of the youngsters.
To describe every dance would be impossible, so
suffice it to say that having once began I went on
steadily through the programme by thinking each
partner more charming and love, than the one be-
fore, till I felt in a perfect whirl: only fancy if
Mrs. T. could have seen me. I expect I should
have got my ears pulled in a way I should not
have liked. How many a little heart would have
beaten with inquisitive excitement could they only
have suspected they were dancing with "Tally Ho:"
once, too, I believed I danced with "Alice," at
least I have suspicions it was she, and how I did
laugh within myself at the thoughts of the dusting
I should have received had she only known who
her partner was.
Alas all pleasures must come to an end and hav-
ing some distance to ride I could not stay to enjoy
that fine old country dance Sir Roger de Coverley,
though more than one of my fair partners tried to
persuade me to, even intimating that if I did they
would dance Sir Roger 'with me, but I had to be
off, so wishing the Governor and Lady Laffan good
night, I started off ;on my long ride home.-
Now, to hark back again. We had a very fair
assembly at the Flatts and it was delightful to see
old Dandy and Jenny Jones out again, the former
was navigated in a very seamanlike manner
throughout the run and with helm well down got
safely over most obstacles. It was very nice too
to welcome once again a lady, who a few seasons
back, used to shew us the way over the stiffest coun-
try, and we trust she will again. The Master
seemed very anxious'to be off, visions of fair part-
ners and dancing at the finish, I supposed were pass-
ing in his mind; and it was evident there was to be
but little waiting for any one to-day. At five min-
utes after three a start was tried, but an absent one
was known to be on, the road, so a few minutes
more law was given*. At last, however, we are
away, the bares ha:go-re aloig the road past Mr.
Whitney's and then turning up a bridle road to the
right, the scent led us along some nice galloping
ground over a few walls and nearly straight to
Smith's Parish Church; from there we turn towards
the North Shore again, over a nice rail, which did
not look quite so nice when we left it, as fortunately
for the Knight and his rider, it gave way to theix
united efforts ; next comes a very pretty wall over
which nearly all get safely, though one rider has
landed before his horse and the latter thinking it
will be better fun to hunt alone leaves his unfortu-
nate master to follow on foot. Crossing the middle
road just above the Flt.ts the scent took us over
more rails and up to Mrs. Peniston's house, through
the yard, over a small'rail and along the top of the
hill to the Rev. George Tucker; from there to
Mount Langton we got a fast galop along the hills
above the North Shore and so finished a very
pleasant day's hunt.
Thursday next the Meet is to be at the Yacht
Club with the Finish at Dr. Sinclair's, so that I
suppose our run will be that pretty one through
Fairy Land and I hope to be there.

LONDON, Jan. 13.-A Calcutta dispatch to the
Times says: The troops of the Peshawar and Khu. -
rum columns are now settled down in quarters
which, unless unforseen events occur, they are in-
tended to occupy for the next two months. Gen.
Browne's'and Gen. Made's divisions are in echelon,
in mutually supporting detachments, extending
from Jalalabad to Nowshera. This extension and
distribution of the forces, besides affording the re-
quisite protection to the entire line of the road, has
the advantage of diminishing, as far as possible, the
strain upon the Commissariat Department. Major
Cavagnari has received friendly letters from most of
the Kabul and Ghitzail chiefs.
"An imposing durbar was held at Jalalabad on
the 1st of January by Gen. Sir Samuel Browne.
Most of the local Khans and influential men of the
neighborhood attended, MajorCavagnari, address-
ing them, explained the Viceroy of India's procla-
mation. He commented on the recent events as
manifesting the strength of the British Government,
and the failure of the Ameer's resistance, and re-
peated the assurance that we have no quarrel with
the people of Afghanistan. The principal Khan
replied in language, which may be taken for what
it is worth, expressing his contentment with the
change of authority, and freely offering his ser-
"The health of the troops at present is good, and
they are settling themselves down comfortably in
their different camps. With wet weather, however,
there will certainly come more sickness, but not
sufficient to make a serious inroad on the strength
of the force. The most unhealthy positions are
probably Ali-Musjid and Dakka.

TASHKEND, Turkeslan, Jan. 13, 1879.
An important step has been taken by Russia.
General Kaufmann has forwarded an invitation
to Shere Ali to come on to Tashkend. This letter
of the Governor General of Turkestan cannot reach
the Ameer before the 18tb, and the latter cannot be
exp:r,!odv here earlier than the 5th of February.
There is some doubt whether he is still waiting at
The Royal Cavalcade. -The Ameer is preceded by
nine elephants, and two thousand horses, carrying
his women, treasure and baggage. Shere All re-
ceives daily reports from his son and representa-
tive on the throne, Yakoob Khan. On this young
acting potentate if reports from creditable sources
speak truly, English gold is beginning to exercise
Yakoob's Scheme.-It is probable that Yakoob
Khan will soon usurp his father's throne, thus veri-
fying the wildest Arabian tales of sudden transi- '
tion from dungeon to durbar. In a letter to the
English generals on quitting Cabul the Ameer
stated that he had only left in the keeping of Ya-
koob Khan about $900.

'DEAR SIR,-Reference having been had, in a late is-
sue of the Gazette, to Bishops Sugden and G.-- and to
a division in the Reformed Episcopal Church iSgl
land, at least on the part of these Bishops-please have
the kindness to publish the following extracts, mostly
as explanatory of this af", pr.
The first two are reprints from the Rock.
SIR,-Tt is right you should know officially that
Bishop Gregg has severed his connection with the Re-
formed Episcopal Church, deeming it wiser, for reasons
of his own, to form a separate sect. He has, there-
fore, no authority to use our name, nor to advertise
himself as Primate"-a term introduced at his in-
stigation, and which will now probably be gladly altered,
by his brethren, to the more modest one of presiding
bishop. The Standing Committee and General Synod
of the Reformed Episcopal Church remain as before,
with the exception of Bishop Gregg's retirement, none
of the officials having joined his movement.
I am, etc., ALFRED S. RICHARDSON,
Sec. to the General Synod R. E. C.
Bishop Cheney and Governor Woodford, of the Re-
formed Episcopal Church, are expected to visit the
Synod of this country, shortly, when it is probable that
more Bishops will be consecrated by Bishops Cheney
The remaining Extracts are from the Episcopal Re-
corder of Philadelphia, U.S.
It would appear as though Bishop Gregg valued
Episcopal succession more highly than do some among
us, and. having obtained a consecration which he deem-
ed valid, from America, he wished for no further con-
nection with us, preferring to pursue his future course
untrammeled by the views and usages prevailing in
With very peculiar views concerning many subjects,
some of which were manifest in the Prayer Book re-
cently issued in England, and which we are informed
was in large measure his own work, it is perhaps quite
as well for our denomination that Bishop Gregg should
have decided to take the step he has done. He will be
free from restraint from us, and we shall be spared from
the necessity of apologizing for some things he thought
it right to do.
Bishop Gregg's action toward the Church in this
country seems the more inexplicable and ungrateful,
inasmuch as the expenses attendant upon his consecra-
tion were borne by some of the very men he new finds
it impossible to continue in union with.
We are happy to learn that, rallying around Bishop
Sugden, the original membergsof our Church in Eng-
land are united in their views, and that beyond the scan-
dal created by Bishop Gregg, we are likely to gain by
Still later intelligence from the same source, under
date of Nov. 22d., states that Mr. Richardson's letter
in the Rock last week (Nov. 15th) explains the true
position, and there is really nothing to add to it. We
are true, and firm to a man, rallying around Bishop
Sugden, and intend to abide by the Reformed Epis-
copal Church, and wait the issue of events, feeling that
God will overrule it for good." **

Nothing of the kind has been known for at least
thirty years, if ever. It is not known yet whether
the orange trees and fruit are injured. Snow fell

Hamilton, Bermuda, January 15, 1879.
DiAc Mn. EDaTon,-Hamilton, as a modern town,
is gradually improving, and year by year we see
something new for our comfort and pleasure.
Some few years back, pedestrians at night groped
around in darkness, and ran great risks of being
injured by passing vehicles; now this danger is
obviated by our street lamps, which shed their
welcome rays over the lonely streets and guide the
benighted wayfarer to his destination. The side-
walks lately added to the streets of the town, keep
his feet dry in rainy weather, and prevent lady
pedestrians from being rudely jostled by carriages
and drays. I have lately noticed something new in
the way of improvements, viz., monumental orna-
ments to the wharves of the Town. These improve-
ments have been commenced on the wharf near the
R.B.Y. Club House, where three Blacksmith's Forges
were placed about 2 months ago. These ornaments
of skill and industry have evidently been intended
to withstand the effects of wind and weather, as
they are built of iron, while their peculiar forma-
tion admirably adapts them for use as ginger beer
stalls or fruit stands.
These beautifully ornamental designs strike the
eye of the observer very forcibly and we have great
cause to thank those whose kindness has thus ad-
ded to the picturesque beauties of our little town.

THE FOX AS A REASONER.
For some good instances of reasoning in animals I
am always indebted to Dr. Rae. Desiring to obtain
some Arctic foxes, he set various kinds of traps; but,
as the foxes knew these traps from previous experi-
ence, he was unsuccessful. Accordingly he set a kind
of trap with which the foxes in that part of the coun-
try were not acquainted. This consisted of a loaded
gun set upon a strand pointing at the bait. A string
connected the trigger of the gun with the bait, so that
when the fox seized the bait he discharged the gun,
and thus committed suicide. In this arrangement
the gun was separated from the bait by a distance of
about twenty yards, and the string which connected
the trigger with the bait was concealed throughout
nearly its whole distance in the snow. The gun-trap
thus set was successful in killing one fox, but not in
killing a second; for the foxes afterward adopted
either of two devices whereby, to secure the bait
without injuring themselves. One of these devices
was to bite through the string at the exposed part
near the trigger, and the other device was to burrow
up to the bait through the snow at right angles to the
line of fire, so that, although in this way they dis-
charged the gun, they escaped without injury-the
bait being pulled below the line of fiie before the
string was drawn sufficiently tight to discharge the
gun. Now, both of these devices exhibited a won-
derful degree of what I think must fairly be called
power of reasoning. I have carefully interrogated
Dr. Rae on all the circumstances of the case, and
he tells me that in that part of the world traps are
never set with strings, so that there can have been
no special association in the foxes' minds between
strings and traps. Moreover, after the death of fox
number one, the track on the snow showed that fox
number two, notwithstanding the temptation offered
by the bait, had expended a great deal of scientific
observation on the gun before he undertook to sever
the cord. Lastly, with regard to burrowing at right
angles to the line of fire, Dr. Rae and a friend in
whom he has confidence observed the fact a suffici-
ent number of times to satisfy themselves that the
direction of the burrowing was really to be attribu-
ted to thought and not to chance.-Nineteenth Cen-
A writer who has been making a study of forest
trees, their rapid destruction in this country, and
their effect on climate and health, says that since
1835 the forest area of the Western Hemisphere has
decreased at the yearly average rate of 7,600,000
acres, or about 11,000 square miles, and that this
rate in the United States alone has advanced from
1,600 square miles in 1835 to 7,000 in 1855, and
8,400 in 1876, while the last two years have scarcely
been less exhaustive. Statistics for 80 years previ-
ous to 1835 show that we have been wasting the sup-
ply of moisture to American soil at the average rate
of 7 per cent. for each quarter of a century during
the last 125 years, and that we are now approaching
the limit beyond which any further decrease will ma-
terially influence the climate of the entire continent.
Many Eastern regions, such as Afghanistan, Persia,
India, and Asia Minor, once possessed of a fine cli-
mate and abundant harvests, are now often scourged
by pestilence and famine, and it is altogether pro-
bable that their misfortunes began with the disap-
pearance of their native forests. It is quite likely
that we shall suffer in climate, fertility, and health
before a great while if we continue to destroy our
trees as recklessly as we have done, and it behooves
up to be warned in time. What has happened else-
where may certainly happen here. Indeed, there is
great danger of it, for we know by experience that
fertile lands have grown sterile by loss of trees, and
that sterile lands have in turn become fertile by sys-
tematic planting. A certain proportion of well-
wooded, as well as of arable and pasture land is es-
i sential to our material prosperity, and this propor-
tion can never be kept up, unless regular tree-plant-
ing be adopted as a set-off to the excessive destruction
incessantly going on. For 150 years we have been
felling the forest; for the next 150 we should try to
restore what we have taken away.
The Nature gives a description of an electric
spark pen which has been invented by M. Bailey,
of Paris, for rapidly producing engravings on cop-
per or zinc. A thin s'eet of paper is attached to
the plate. One of the poles of a Ruhmkorff nia-
4 chine is connected to the plate and the other pole
to the top of the pen. The electricity then runs
through, making aspark which perforates the paper
in whatever way the artist directs the pen. As
soon as the drawing is finished, the plate is rubbed
over with greasy ink, laid on with an ordinary rol-
ler. The paper is removed, and the plate is dipped
into the acid, which cuts away those portions not
protected by the ink. The light of the spark is said
to be sufficient for the artist even when he works
in a dark room, and the pen is stated to be as man.-
agenble as as ordinary pencil.
