Heamilton, Bermuda,, Febrnargy I 1879.

Under the above caption a lady, well known in
Prince Edward Island, and not unknown here, con-
tributes five letters to the Charlotte Town Exam-
iner" in an easy graphic style. The ins and outs of
Paris consume two letters. The third introduces
us to a brief Swiss tour. Anent Lucerne and its far-
famed organ.
"The church was very dimly lighted, and in front
of the high altar was a body waiting for interment.
Perfect stillness reigned. After a few moments
broken by the growling of distant thunder, louder
and louder, nearer and nearer it comes, then a fear-
ful crash, the hailstones rattle on the roof, and the
rain patters against the windows. The thunder
gradually dies away, and sweet soft human voices
are heard in the distance, as they come nearer
swelling into a chorus of praise and thanksgiving.
Is it possible that all this harmony of grand and
beautiful sounds can proceed from an organ, and
have one man's hands produced it all ? Yes. The
"vox humana" of this particular organ is unsur-
'And touching the Rigi sunrise:
"Next morning the melodious tooting of a horn
awoke us from our slumbers. Sweet and clear it
sounded in the morning air. Soon all the guests
from the two hotels are standing on Rigi's brow,
the toilets of several bearing evident marks of des-
patch. Everybody is waiting to see the sun rise,-
striking the mountains with golden light and driv-
ing darkness from their faces. One or two red
streaks show wherehehe is reposing, but he is too
lazy to get up. He pulls his downy blanket of
clouds over his face, and behaves in a most ungra.
cious manner. We wait until the usual time for
his majesty's appearance; then unanimously agree-
ing that he is fickle, the crowd quietly dispersed.
At eleven. o'clock we took our seats in the car to
descend. The peaks of the mountains are clear, but,
below they are enveloped in light fleecy clouds. At
one time we seemed to be floating in air, surround-
ed by shapeless masses of white clouds ; and away
.down, steep slopes, deep valleys, trees and houses.,
The clouds sink lower, the thunder growls, the
lightning flashes, the rain beats in our faces, the
green earth is shut out from our sight, and the
white tops of the mountains stand out before us in
in their majesty and grandeur. Again the clouds
rise. Pilatus hidden in mist, and the lovely soft
green of the sloping hills revealed. The cattle are*
seen browsing in the valleys, and the lake sleeps
tranquilly below."
"From Neuhausen (Falls of the Rhine) to Baden-
Baden we took the train passing through the Black
Forest. At first we were disappointed. The trees
seemed smaller than we should find in an American
Forest; but gradually our murmurs of disapproba-
ment died away, and our enjoyment of the beaxiti-
ful scenery found vent in words of admiration.
The road winds in and out and round about on the
sides of sloping hills,: affording delicious glimpses
of valleys ,and chalets and streams running like sil-
ver threads. Now we plunge into a tunnel in total
darkness; out again into the bright sunlight; in
again, until we have passed through 36 tunnels, the
whole route being one continued succession of sur-
As to the "New," so called from the 15th cen-
tury, "Palace" at Baden-Baden, "The Grand
Duke not being in residence, the Castellan took us
through the building containing" portraits of the.
Grand Dukes to the present time. The private
apartments are plainly but handsomely fitted up.
While examining some stained glass in a bow win-
dow our conductor touched a little spot on the
wall. Instantly the floor opened disclosing a
staircase. The effect was like magic. It reminded
us of such stories as Aladdin and his wonderful
lamp." It seemed so funny that we prosaic beings
of the 19th century should- be safely descending
staircases wrapped in darkness and mystery. The
most curious portion of this castle is under ground
where there are numerous dark and gloomy vaults
each with its own dismal story. Before
leaving, the Castellan took us into the garden and
presented the ladies with sprigs of myrtle to be
kept in remembrance. From Dagobert's Tower we
had a fine view of the old Castle. The
ruined castle dates from the 10th Century. Al-
though apparently crumbling to decay, you can
fearlessly, ascend to the very top of the edifice,
counting yourself well paid for your trouble by the
magnificent views you get every step of the way.
The Conversationhaus boasts some splen-
did saloons, where the famous "Rouge et Noir"
tables were held."
"The carriage was beset all the way with par-
ties of little beggars. As the carriage approached,
these little reprobates would be seen seven or eight
at a time standing on their heads in a row; and, as
we came up to them, over they would go on hands,
head and feet, looking like wheels. Tired of this
they spring to their feet and follow the carriage
screthming for pennies. They will keep up with
the horses for nearly a mile. As one gets tired,
another lot, waiting like birds of prey for their vic-
tims, takes their place, so that visitors are
never free from them between Brussels and Water-
loo. ... ."Next morning we started from
Brussels and crossed the channel on the Calais
Douvres." There was scarcely a ripple on "the
water, and no one even thought of being ill! So
ends our delightful trip to the Continent of Eu-
rope, four weeks overrunning with pleasant incid-
ents, grateful remembrances, blending instruction
with amusement, and leaving behind recollections

'which can never be forgotten."
"IThe Authoress, if the choice of locality is left to
to her, has no special wish to die in Paris, where
life has so many fascinations.

education, I outstrip the horses of my station, it
needs no further explanation.
For W. A. M. I have great respect,, his subjects
are sober, and ever select, and if I'm not mistaken
they always tend, to the good of the human race in
the end; and he evidently will not condescend to
employ his talents, his time, nor his pen, in replying
to nonsense of turfy men.
But when I saw how unkind they were to their
FRIENDS (!) to him, and to me, I declare I could not
endure it, so in the end I-gave full scope to my
cacoethes scribendi. -
My ancestors were as-though THEY may not-
on know, the Jovial God and the virtuous Juno.
used, you remember, in times gone by, to forge
arms for the gods who in battle did vie; and as
their descendant I've now learned to wield, the
sword of Eneas, and Hercules' shield.
So I counsel your friends, it will best suit their
ends to cave in and cry "Pax," as we, each have
received and given our whaoks; and I'm quite con-
tent (if such be their bent,) as the matter now stands
to make it up" and shake hands: as a matter of
course, being only a horse, I speak not en rigueur,
but only in figure. I must now refrain and draw
in the rein, and so I remain,

For the Bermuda Royal Gazette.
While the Tobacco Seed remains in the ground-
and, equally, while the young plants remain in the
Seed-beds,-those seed-beds must have the most care-
ful attention. The ground should never be allowed to
become quite dry, but be kept always in a moderately
moist condition, without being at any time soaked with
water. To ensure these desirable results it is the cus-
tom to protect the beds from the evil influence of too
strong a sunshine, as well as from the damaging effects
of very heavy rains, by spreading over them, at a height
of from two to three feet from the ground, layers of
palm leaves, or of green boughs, resting upon horizon-
tal rods or poles, supported on short trestles. These
extemporised shades or screens are very useful on hot
sunny days and during heavy rains, and they can be
easily removed, when necessary, to allow the plants to
profit by the softer showers or by the refreshing night
dews. During any lengthened prevalence of hot dry
weather, the beds should be watered every morning and
evening with a very finely pierced watering pot.
When the young plants have made their appearance
above ground, the beds should be carefully examined, to
ascertain whether there may not be some spots where
the plants have sprung up too Lhaikly. If such should
prove to be the case a sufficient number of the smallest
and weakest should be thinned out from each such spot,
so as to leave room for the stronger ones to develop
themselves. If owing to any cause there should be a
great scarcity of young plants, these weaklings may be
transplanted to another bed ;-but, as a rule, it is better
to make no use of them, as they seldom, if ever, grow
up into strong or profitable Tobacco plants. After this
thinning the planter must take care to keep the beds
entirely free from every kind of weed, and he must have
them examined several times each day, for the purpose
of removing and destroying the swarms of slugs and
snails and caterpillars, and noxious insects of various
kinds, which prey upon the young shoots and the tender
leaves. The best time to capture these enemies is in
the early morning-before the sun is up.
The young plant sare ready to be planted out in the
fields when their leaves have grown to the length of
about an inch,-and this will generally be found to be
the case in from six weeks to two months from the time
of sowing. In three months more the first crop of To-
bacco is usually ripe for cutting, and in about thirty
days after the first crop follows a second, consisting of
the young shoots or rattoons which have sprung up
from the stems of the parent plants; generally, too,
there is a third crop following a month later.
Supposing therefore that a sowing of Tobacco seed
were made here in the month of March-in the
-month of May following the young plants would be
planted out in the fields-in the month of August the
main crop of Tobacco would be reaped, and the second
and third crops would follow in September and October.
In the next number directions will be given as to the
manner of preparing the fields for the reception of the
young plants on their removal from the seed-beds, and
as to the many precautions which must be adopted to
ensure that the process of transplanting shall be carried
out with perfect success.

The intelligence we publish to-day, among the
Canima's news, from South Africa is of a melan-
choly and unsatisfactory character. The difficulties
of the situation do not seem to have been accurately
comprehended by the War Office, but now, after
the disaster to our arms, the most energetic mea-
sures are being promptly taken, and within a month
we may look for a turn in our fortunesaof war and
a just retribution. Our men in their surprise have
not perished without inflicting loss on the Zulus to
a heavy extent.

LONDON, Feb. 11.-The following communication
has been received at the War Office from Lord
Chelmsford :--" I regret to have to report a very
disastrous engagement on the 22nd of January be-
tween the Zulus and a portion of No. 3 column,
which was left to guard the camp, about ten miles
in frolt of Rorke's Drift. The Zulus came down in
overwhelming numbers, and in spite of gallant re-
sistance by five companies of the first battalion of
the Twenty-fourth regiment, one company of the
second battalion of the Twenty-fourth Regiment,
two guns, two rocket tribes, 164 mounted men and
about eight hundred natives they overwhelmed
them. The camp, containing all the surplus am-
munition and transport of column No. 3, was taken
and few of its defenders escaped. Our loss, I fear,
must be set down at thirty officers, and about five
hundred non-commissioned officers, rank and file of
the imperial troops, and seventy non-commissioned
officers rank and file of the colonial troops.
CAPE TowN, Jan. 27, via St. Vincent.--On the
21st inst., a British column, consisting of a portion
of the Twenty-fourth Regiment, a battery of Artil-
lery, and 600 native auxilaries, was utterly annihi-
lated, near the Tugela River, by 20,000 Zulus, who
captured a valuable convoy of 102 wagons, 1,000
oxen, 2 cannon, 400 shot and shell, 1,000 rifles,
250,000 rounds ammunition, 60,000 pounds' weight
of provisions, and colours of the Twenty-fourth
It is estimated that 5,000 Zulus were killed and
wounded in the battle.
Among the killed on the British side are 2 Majors
4 Captains, 12 Lieuts., and the Quartermaster of
the Twenty-fourth Regiment, 2 Captains of the
Royal Artillery, a Colonel, Captain, 4 Lients., and
Surgeon-Major of Engineers, besides 21 other Brit-
ish officers commanding the native levies.
Seven attacks subsequently made by the Zulus
have been repulsed and the colony is now somewhat
recovering from the utter consternation which at
first prevailed. Naka,, however, is in great danger
and disturbances are feared in Pongoland.
Lord Chelmsford, the commander of the expedi.
tion, has been forced to return in consequence of the
defeat. It is estimated that 500 soldiers were killed
besides the officers enumerated above.
Gov. Sir Bartle Frere has sent appeals to England
and the Mauritius for reinforcements. The mail
steamer for England was dispatched a day earlier
than usual, with a request for six regiments of in-
fantry and a brigade of cavalry.
The men-of-war, the Active and the Tenedos,
have been ashore. The Tenedos was seriously in-
jured, and obliged to go into dock at Simon's Bay.
LONDON, Feb., 11.--The Standard's dispatches
from Cape Town says the British force was compell-
ed to recross the borders. The force which was an-
nihilated was attacked while guarding the camp of
the head-quarters' column at Insandusana during
the absence ot Lord Chelmsford with a strong force
Details of the disaster to the British force show
that the guns were spiked before they were captured.
The Times says, editorially, that the Government
is bound to send ample reinforcements without an
hour's delay and spare no expense or effort.
LoNDON, Feb. 12.--The Admiralty announces that
it has chartered fifteen-steamers to carry troops and
supplies to the Cape. This fleet includes the Trans-
atlantic steamers Egypt, France,. Spain, Russia,
England, China, Olympus, Palmyra, and City of
Paris .....
The steamers chartered at Liverpool to carry
troops to South Africa will be fitted ouatat some
other port on account of the labor strike. The
owners of several of the steamers have engaged to.
have them ready for sea within a week.

The officers of the first battalion of the Twenty.
fourth regiment of British infantry at the Cape
are :-
Lieutenant Colonel Richard Thomas Glyn.
Major H. Burmester Pulleine.
Major Walter Bernardino Logan.
Paymaster Francis F. White.
Adjutant Teignmouth Melvill.

The reinforcements for Cape Colony ordered from
England number about seven thousand men. The
government is actively inquiring concerning private
steamers. The Assistarce, which is the only troop
ship in the harbor, is being rapidly prepared for
service, at Portsmoutb. Mr. W. I Smith, First
Lord of the Admiralty, speaking at Westminster to.
night, stated that troops sufficient to end the struggle
with the Zalus would be on the way to the Cape
within a week. lie -declared he had every confi-
dence in Lord Chelmsford.
Reinforcements for the Cape.-The artillery for the
Cape is ready at Woolwich, and it is expected it
will start on Thursday. It is understood that seve-
ral regiments of infantry will leave with the artillery
for the Cape. A statement is published that the
government has telegraphed to Lord Lytton, Vice-
roy of India, to immediately send reinforcements to
Consternation in London.-The news of the defeat
caused a sensation throughout London. The de-
mand for newspapers at all the suburban stations
was greater than since the outbreak of the Franco-
German war.
A Sad Tale.-The Times, commenting on the news
from Cape Town, says :-" Nothing can exceed the
frankness Qf the recital, for it is clear that nothing
has been held back. It would be useless to deny
either.the sadness or the extreme gravity of the ca-
tastrophe. Whether there was or was not any want
of vigilance on the part of our own forces it is clear
that the Zulus are even more formidable than our
military authorities expected them- to be. It was
kpown that they are well drilled, that great num-

bers are armed with breech-loalers, and that they
could fight courageously. We now know only too
well how large a force they can mass at one point.
Sad as the loss of our troops is, still graver is the
peril which must arise with thQ defeat. The Zulus
will be emboldened and the colonists b, exposed to
fresh and formidable dangers.

The Locality of the Defeat--The Zulu Race and their
History for a Century.-The defeat of the British
column by Cetywayo, the Zulu chief, brings a crisis in
British affairs in South Africa. It involves, as a pro.
bale result, a costly and tedious war with the majority
of the other Caffre tribes, which the Zulus will doubtless
be able to bring to their assistance. On the 12th of
January, as already reported, Colonel Glyn's column
had an engagement with the Zulus, and the British loss
was set down as trifling. The conclusion of the cable
despatch referred to now becomes very significant:-
"The Zulus offer slight resistance, withdrawing into the
interior as the troops advance. Skirmishing, with-
out noteworthy result, is reported from different points'"
It would appear probable from this that the Zulu
chieftain pursued the tactics of inducing the British
to follow him until he had separated the column
under Col. Glyn, with which Lord Chelmsford would
appear to have been at the time of the disaster, from
the main body. Then, as indicated in the Standard
despatch of this morning, the howling Zulus fell upon
the camp and massacred everybody. The scene of the
defeat is the village of Insandusann, on the Tugela
River, forming the northern boundary line of Natal.
The country is wild and rugged and such as to make a
bush wariare extremely tedious aa:l dangerous.

The Times' despatch from Calcutta says :-(" Ad-
vices from all points of the scene of active opera-
tions are highly satisfactory, both as regards the
political and military situations and the condition
of the force and supplies. Rain still holds off in
the Northwest provinces and the Punjaub. The
harvest prospects are most gloomy.
Afghan Gossip.-A despatch from Calcutta says
that the report of the death of the Ameer of Afghan.
istan is untrue. It arose from the demise of the
Ameer of Bokhara. The Ameer of Afghanistan
will endeavour to reach Herat. Yakoob Khan re-
cently sent a cavalry regiment to Kohistan to quell
disturbances among the tribes there, whereupon
both factions suspended hostilities and attacked
and routed the regiment.

RussIA or ''UdKISH TERRITORY.-The Telegraph's
Berlin correspondent reports that General Todleben
on Tuesday ordered fonr regiments to march to-
ward Arab-Taia. It is feared that unless the
Powers declare the matter one of European interest
a collision is inevitable. A Vienna despatch to the
Times, however, says Germany and Italy have ad-
vised Roumania to evacuate Arab-Tabia, and in
this advice the other Powers are disposed to concur,
with a view to the maintenance of European con-
cert. The Standard's despatch from Tirnova states
that the Russians in Bulgaria have been ordered to
hold themselves in readiness to leave at the time
appointed by the Berlin Congress.

A semi-official statement is published at St. Pe-
tersburg. in which complaint is made of Rouma-
nia's neglect to give notice to Russia of her precau-
tions against the plague. The locking of railway
carriages containing Russian officers is considered
specially unfriendly and unjustifiable. Roumania
claims that her action is in accord with the mea-
sures adopted by Austria and Germany. The Go.
los publishes the following telegram from the prin-
cipal members of the Bourse at Astrachan:-" Ac-
cording to official and private reports the epidemic
has entirely disappeared. There have been no cases
in this government for several days." The Vienna
Presse announces that the Austrian government
will shortly order the same precautions against
Turkey as are in force against Russia The navi-
gation of the Danube will be restricted and its
Sulina mouth closed. Prince Lobanoff at Constan-
tinople has authorised measures for the disinfection
at Varna and Borgas of arrivals from suspected
ports. The chief medical officer at Kavala declares
that district to be free from the plague but states
that malignant typhus prevails at Senikova. The
Folkething at Copenhagen has voted '* urgency" for
a bill instituting precaution against the plague.
The Post's Berlin despatch says that the Czar refu-
ses to permit Roumania to subject Russian soldiers
returning from Turkey to quarantine. The Presi-
dent of the Londlon College of Physicians has cal-
led a meeting to discuss precautions necessary
against the plague.

Many Ships Detained for Want of Crews-Proposals
for a Compromise Rejected.
SLIVERPOOL, Feb. 12.-Trade here is quite paral-
yzed by the strike, which has now extended to the
carters and the whole body of carpenters, some. of
whom were already on strike. The strike among
the sailors has become more general, and great
difficulty is experienced in obtaining crews, save at
considerably increased rates. Yesterday several
ships were awaiting crew's, but the men were firm.
It is said that there are thirty-five grain-laden
ships at Queenstown, and that the owners do not
know where to send them. Meanwhile the grain
may be heating in the vessels' holds and rendered
valueless. There are many reports of intimidation
by dock laborers and others to prevent men from

working until the dispute is settled.
The British and African Company's steam ship
Lualaba, which was to have sailed for the west
coast of Africa on Thursday last, has not yet left
her dock. The agents promise the men protection
in the dock, but the men say they require protection
outside also. The Cunard Company have all their
vessels in the Huskisson dock, which is enclosed,
and have provided within the dock walls accommo-
dation for the men brought from Glasgow. The
local authorities maintain strict supervision with
the police and military, and none but people on
business are allowed within the enclosure along the I
whole line of the docks.
At the meeting of the shipowners' committee and
the strikers' delegation to-day the former proposed
to pay the old wages, provided the days's work
shall be one hour longer. This proposition was re-
jected by the delegation. The shipowners' commit-
tee then, on their own responsibility, suggested that
the question be referred to arbitration. This sug-.
gestion was also rejected.

LONDON, Feby. 4.-Reuter's Paris dispatch to.

At the Assizes at Bordeoux, yesterday, M. Deb-
beeque, Director of the Mint, was sentenced to six
years imprisonment and 115,000f. fine for embezz-
ling 1,400,000f. bullion, which had been lodged in
the mint by the Rothschilds. M. Debbecque sub-
stituted galvanized copper bars for the bullion
which he embezzled.

A PoRPoisE.-There was on exhibition at the
Metropolitan Hotel, in this Town, on Tuesday af-
ternoon last, of a large porpoise, say about seven feet
in length and weighing 'about two hundred pounds.
It was quite a novelty, for though almost every one
who has made a voyage to sea has seen this mama-
lia disporting itself around the vessel, but still
very few have seen one captured and been enabled
to observe their peculiar shape of body, head, &c.,
or to place their hand on the soft smooth skin of the
.animal, as they had an opportunity of doing on this
occasion. We learn that this animal was captured
on the previous evening, in the Great Sound, just
inside of Coblers' Island, by Messrs. Whitecross &
Ingham, fishermen, when pursuing their calling,
with a seine. They first observed it gamboling, at a
distance, but when they saw it approaching them they
immediately determined to make an attempt to cap-
ture it. With this intent, when it came close to
them, they threw out the seine, and pulling round
enclosed it. When it found itself within
the seine, it at first swam round and round seeking
an opening to escape, but the seine was quickly
drawn together and when its tail became entangled.
it rolled over and over like a barrel, till it became
helplessly tied up in.the seine. It was then lifted into
the boat by the fishermen and their assistants, and
after making two or three powerful movements.
which caused the fishermen to fear that their boat
would be stove by the severe blows of the animal's
tail-it died.
This is the first instance ever known of a por-
poise being seen within the reefs of these Islands,
and this one, it is presumed, was lured within the
reefs by the Steamer Castlewood, which was towed
from sea into Granaway's Deep a few days before
by the Mail Steamer Canima.
After the exhibition was closed the operation of
selling the meat was commenced,.and jhe demand, at
first slow, increased rapidly when the quality, test-
ed after careful cooking at the Hotel, was proved to
be very palatable and tender-better indeed than a
most delicate whale steak.
This animal had a very capacious mouth with a
beautiful row of fine teeth. The porpoise preys.on
small fish, and seeks food, not only by swimming,
but by rooting like a pig in the sand and mud,
hence some suppose the name hog-fish has been given-
to it; the entrails resemble those of a pig.

DEAR MR. LEE,-I had the extreme satisfaction
of joining in the grand hunt finish at Woodlands
last Tuesday, when every one seemed pleased with
the liberal entertainment so generously provided
by Mr. and Mrs. Hurd, in one of the most spacious
mansions of Bermuda. Eager feet kept polishing
the elastic waxed floors. Where is Tally Ho?
Here is field for his genius more than usually ex-
pansive ; we shall certainly expect to find him next
week very witty and spicy and to the front. Al-
most every body says what a versatile character
Tally Ho is, to keep up 'week after week an interest
in a sort of permanent institution, where it must
certainly not be an easy matter to provide some-
thing new, that craving, you know sir, which news.
paper readers and specially ladies fully expect to
have satiated. One thing sure his digestion must
be pretty good, else he could not report for you in
the racy fashion he does. I can read Tally Ho's
effusions with a good deal of relish, but I scarcely
think I should care about making the person's ac-
quaintance officially, although it is quite possible
that unconsciously I have already met him as a wor-
thy private citizen of this select community. I
prefer a veil of mist. to overhang, and to go on
dreaming who Tally Ho may be, rather than to be
positively assured who or what he is. As I was "
enjoying the floors of Woodlands the-thought cross-
ed me can that be Tally Ho, squatted in a sly
corner among a select number of spectators, taking
notes ? Dark features, penetrating eyebrows, evi-
dently requiring his vision assisted by a strong eye-
glass, of medium stature and of a powerful build.
If not that must be the sort of man that he is, for,
how otherwise could he write such entertaining
little pieces! One of the chief attractions of vour

paper is what has Tally Ho to say about the last
Hunt. It is no uncommon remark you hear when
paying visits, "I'm sure I don't know what we
should do without the- hunt F" and more. to the
same purport. Could this, I thought, be Tally
Ho ?" He has apparently all his powers of ob-
servation and his honest expression, so that people
who see him will exactly understand him. I can
excuse him using an eye-glass, because he seems to
do so from actual necessity, and is doubtless thereby
enabled to see things in a much clearer light. The
poor man does not seem to have been drilled in the
ornamental use of an eye-glass, which interposes
as a modest veil, and screens the observer from any
charge of rudeness; perhaps to speak truly it is a
polite piece of rudeness which ladies do not alto-
gether object to. My surmises may be quite astray.
Whether or not we shall be pleased to hear from
Tally Ho regularly, not only as to the run but also
with respect to the "plus ultra," which attract such
a numerous retinue as was so pleasingly witnessed
at Woodlands on Tuesday last. ARABELLA.

FOOTBALL (Rugby Union.)
The Return Match was played on the Prospect
ground on Wednesday, (the 5th) and resulted in
another victory for Prospect by 1 goal and 3 tries
to 1 try. Both teams turned up short. St. Georges
playing only eleven men throughout. Whereas
Prospect commencing with two short were re-en-
forced at time and played the last half with 15
to their opponents 11 and the plucky way in which
St. Georges played up with four men short was
beyond all praise. Soon after the kick off Lt. Mor-
ris made a fine run down the left side and secur-
ed the first try for St. Georges-the try failed how-
ever, and Prospect playing up with great deter-
mination worked the ball in grand style to their op-
ponents goal when Lt. Fearon getting hold of it,
made matters equal for his side, this try also failed,
and at time the game stood at 1 try all. Shortly
after the ball was re-started, Lt. Eden, made a splen-
did run and a second try was the result from which
he himself kicked a neat goal. From this to the end
both sides played up all they knew, but St. Georges
couldn't score again and Fearon and Winter both
running in, secured t*o more tries for Prospect.
The Prospect team were much better together than
in the previous Match at St. Georges, but the tack-
ling on both sides was not nearly as good.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-I saw an article in your paper some weeks
ago, which I intended replying to, but it escaped
my memory at the time; though it is never too
late, they say, to do good, so I suppose it is not too
late to answer that article. It was in relation to
the best method of destroying the insect, and pre-
serving the life of the Lemon and Orange tree at-
tacked by it.
I have known several remedies applied, some of
which, it is true killed the insect, but at the same
time killed the tree also; consequently that had to
be abandoned. Some have used paint oil, white-
wash, &c., &c., but I do not approve of either of
these; for anything that has a tendency to clog up
the breathing holes of the bark certainly must in-
jure the tree. I know of one instance in which
kerosene oil was used. This killed both insect and
tree. It was used pure and not diluted, which prov-
ed too powerful for the tree.
Now, I have experimented in trying to destroy
this insect, and watched the result. The best re-
medy I found, and which did not seem to injure
the tree in the least, was shark oil. This can be
very easily obtained from the liver of the shark.
I applied it with a common paint brush (it did not
seem to affect the tree), but its effects on the insect
was, I might say, instantaneous. I never had to
make a second application on the same place.
The advantage of this oil is, it is so thin that or-
dinary rains will wash it all off, eventually, and
leave the bark of the tree as clean as ever. But if
one should like it done more expeditiously, they
can wash it off after the insect has been destroyed,
-nd not wait for the rain. I have a Lime tree, one
of the finest, if not the finest in the Island, which
has been attacked by this little white insect, sever-
al times; but I have always destroyed them by the
above remedy.
Now, if any of your readers think this remedy
worth trying, I think they will find it what it is
represented to be, and it will afford me much plea-
sure, if it proves the means of saving any of their
trees from the ravages of this destructive insect.

I remain yours,

To the Editor of the Bermuda Royal Gazette.
DnAB Mn. LEE,-Tally Ho may be a very good fel-
low but I do not like the wayhe writes of his wife,
and I am sure Mr. Lee that you are of the same opini-
on, and that it was for his benefit you published the
4ice little paragraph you did, in your last issue, to
the effect that "if you search the annals of conju-
gal infelicity you will find that nine times out of
ten the fault is in the husband." I drew his atten-
tion to it with a somewhat malicious pleasure, but
wouldd you believe it at first he denied the veracity
of. the statement generally; then said he would
like to, know the authority on which it was made ;
talked about the statistics being fallacious, and fi-
nally had the audacity to say the paragraph did not
apply to him. Mrs. T. and I know better for we
often notice telling little paragraphs in your paper
for those they fit to put on and appropriate, we
know this fits Tally Ho exactly, and we hope we
will lay it to heart and improve in consequence.
In which case no one will be better pleased or more
grateful to you Mr. Lee than dear Mrs. T. and
her sincere friend

memory that had grown sacred by her expiation, and
around it was the sweet incense of a thousand pray-
