XXTH AND 46TH VRGI=TNS V. THB WORLD.
This match (Rugby Union) was played on Wed.
nesday 12th on the Prospect Ground, and ended in a
victory for the "linesmen" by 1 goal and 3 tries to
0. There was a strong wind blowing up the
ground, against which Lieut. Carden kicked oft at
3'30, both teams playing their full number, and a
rush of "the Infantry forwards carried the ball in
close proximity to the World's goal posts, from
which, however, it was well got away by Mr. Gray,
when Lieut. Fearon got hold of it and after a fine
,run landed it between the posts and secured the first
try for the Infantry," which however failed.
Soon after this Lt. Morrison ran in and Mr. Gray
tackling him in touch, a "maul" ensued which re-
sulted another try for the Infantry, whichhowever
was unsuccessful. At I time-the rain, which had been
long- threatening, came down in earnest and the
Infantry, with a strong wind in their favor, rather
penned their opponents, who, however, play up
with the greatest determination. Lieuts. Carpen-
ter and Tyler and A. Turner, Esqr., especially dis
tinguishing themselves forward. The two Regi.
ments however, were not to be denied and Lieuts.
Steele, and Morris secured two more tries, from the
former of which Lieut. Carden kicked a grand goal
amid the applause of the spectators, whose number
had by this time been reduced to a select few,
amongst whom we were delighted to see a large pro-
portion of ladies, whose gameness in braving the
rain and wind to see the match out was the theme
of general admiration.

half remained intact. The practical advantage of this
was apparent, one half of the highway being passable
while the other half was being improved. It was equal-
ly apparent that while one side had been purposely left
safe, the other was known to the workmen to be unsafe,
but instead of any serviceable warning having been left
for benighted travellers, a pile of loose stones with a
rail resting thereon, and on the opposite bank, At each
end of the cutting, visible only in daylight, complicated
the danger by being just high enough to strike an ad-
vancing horse across the breast, and induce him to
plunge right into the cutting. In the instance referred
to this was happily avoided; but it is urged that the
Inspector of Public Works shall be allowed to have a
supply of lanterns fit to burn all night, in all weathers,
without replenishing, which will enable him to substi-
tute serviceable lights, in place of the dangerous com-
binations of rubble and condemned rails.
From the New York World, 11th February.
The year 1878 therefore was to the Delaware
and Hudson what it was to the Delaware and Wes-
tern a vast improvement over 1877. In the year
1877 the total business of the Delaware a'i-. Hud-
son resulted in a loss of $1,147,332 so that 1878 is
an improvement to the extent- of $1,089,741. In
1877 the leases caused a loss of $605,366 and the
Company proper lost $541,966, together forming a
loss of $1,147,332. In 1878 the Company proper
made a profit of $440,971, but the loss of $498,562
by the leases converted this into a total deficit of
,. In round figures the two Delawares came out
even for the year 1878. Their finances are in good
shape, and both companies are likely to build up
their prosperity in a good demand for coal at very
moderate prices. Their position justifies the con-
fidence in their bonds and leases which we express.

the Health Officer flying. She was promptly boarded
by the Health Officer, Dr. Butterfield, who found two
men sick of fever, apparently of the remittent type.
One was taken on the 15th. four days after leaving.
and the other on the 18th. Vessel placed in Quaran-
tine at Granawa\,'s Deep, for further observation.
We have on two occasions of late alluded to the cir-
Cimstance of yellow fever prevailing at St. Thomas.
[We are gratified to learn that the Sea-breeze has
been, by order of the Governor in Council, removed
from Granaway's Deep to Non-such Island, Qunrantine
Station, where lth' sick can be better cared for, and
where there will be less fear of a contagious disease
YELLOW FEVEi.-A friend, in handing us a copy of
the Report of the Yellow Fever Comnmissson, authorized
by the U. S. Congress to invesIigate the Yellow Fever
epidemic in New Orleans, &c., in 1878, specially
pointed out the following passa'ge:-
How TnANSMiTTED.-Yellow fever is transmitted
across seas and oceans in steamships and sailing ves-
sels, and the infection may be connected with the ves-
sels themselves or the cargoes, or with the crews and
passengers. Ordinary merchandise in original or un-
broken packages may become infected and lead to out-
breaks of yellow fever, but for obvious reasons it is
much less likely to prove dangerous than bedding and
wearing apparel. Packages of this class may become
infected from having been stored in an infected house,
or from having been shipped in an infected vessel."
After briefly treating cholera the report says:-
Every epidemic of cholera in the United States has
followed as a sequence to its epidemic prevalence in
Europe and India.

Whbke every credit must be accorded to the present
man4 nent of the public roads, under which they are
being pereeptibly bettered by the gradual, but persistent
reduction of hills, necessity also exists for greater care
over the safety of the travelling public at night, lest
undue sacrifice of life or limbs be involved.
Not long since when on theroad between St. Georges
and Hamilton, before day had dawned, the writer came
to where a hill was being reduced. Half of the width

SOLUTI ; .\.!.;RICA.
THREE MILLION PEOPLE DIE BY FAMINE AND DIS-
BOSTON, Feby. 14.-A lett r from Ceara, Brazil,
gives the details of. the horrible scenes in that pro-
vince, caused by famine and small-pox during the
past year. The province has been depopulated and
a population of 900,000 reduced to 400,000. At
Fortaleza a new disease called black small-pox has
broken out, but it is believed that this is the black
plague ,of Europe and Asia. Besides the awful
mortality in the province mentioned, it is believed
that 3,000,000 people have died in other famine
and disease.infected provinces in the interior.
An Inquest was held at the Station Hospital, St.
Georges, on the 23rd inst., before Denis Tucker,
Esqr., Coroner, on view of the body of Andrew
Foster, late a private in H.M. 46th Regt., who ,was
found insensible in the bath room of above Hospital
on the previous night, and died soon after. After
hearing the evi-k-i:-..- .:,f Dr. Hare and severalothers,
the Jury found that death resulted- from -an over
dose of rum, but how obtained did not appear.
Ewart Johnstone, a native of Dunfries, Scotland,
aged 26, of the 3rd Battery: 10th Brigade, R.A., was
found lying near the Prince of Wales Towe", Hali-
fax, N.S., at about 3 o'clock, on the 12th instant,
frozen to death. The deceased had attended the
Brunswick St. W. M. Church in the morning, and
after dinner had taken several drinks of liquor and
it is thought went out to the woods, took a smoke,
and being drowisy from the effects of drink, fell
asleep never to wake again. He had been'in the
service about seven years, four of which he spent at
Bermuda, and two in Halifax.
SWEDISH ARCTIC ExpFrr.p rTia SAFE. -Despatches
received on the 14t-h February at Montreal con-
tain the gratifying intelligence that the Swedish
Arctic Expedition is safe. It. may be some disap-
pointment that Prof. Nordenskjold has not been
able to get through Behring Straits this season,
but everyone will rejoice that the daring explorer
is alive and -well and in a position to resume his
voyage next sunimer.
THE BLACK DEATH.
Steamers between Italy and Egypt are. discon-
tinued on account of the il-iue. The importation
of Egy ptian cotton into Italy is prohibited. Greek
vessels with corn are warned away from Palermo
by cannon shot.
LONDON, Feb. 15.-It is reported that the plague
has appeared in Bessarabia. "
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15.-Surgeon General Wood-
work writes to the Congressional Committee on
epidemics, calling attention, to the prevalence of
the plague i'n Europe. He says Europe has be-,
come alarmed and commerce with Russia interdict-
ed, except under strict quarantine rules, but in
spite of the expenditure of money, and the strong:
military arm of the Government, the measures of
prevention appear to have been too long delayed
and the plague is rapidly spreading. Should the
plague appear in the countries of Europe with
which the United States have commercial inter-
course, there would be great.danger of the disease
spreading to our shores. In fact the danger exists
at present through ships from the '.,-.pian and
Black Seas. There is considerable danger from the
introduction of infected clothing into this country,
brought by Russian ,c' i;rants, ,-l.eiCi lly Mennon-
ites from Southern Russia, large numbers of whom
ship at Liverpool.
MADEIRA, Feb. 15.-Two British ships for Bar-
celona from the East are quarantined at Port Ma-
A Russian report thus describes this disease:
"A swelling about the size of a hen's egg appears
in the groin. A general ulneasinesS, with violent
headache, accompany the appearance of this pri-
mary symptom. This period of the disease, from
the swelling to its full development, lasts at the
most a few hours, often not more than two or three.
Immediately afterwards violent irti-rr *-h pains are
felt, copious vomitifig takes place, and shortly af-
terwards black spots appear on the body; generally
on the chest, fo'rea i, and the upper part of the
back. One hour or two after these effects, death
supervenes. Generally the 'disease carries off its
victim in about tenf hours after its appearance, but
there were cases v.', hr death happened in less than
four hours after the i:-'. symtpoms.
The p;'.dci.,.i, who was sent, not to the spot,-for
nobody dares to penetrate the infected zone, but its
boundaries, say$; "It is indisputably the black
plague." The following are a few statistical figures
fromi the terrible report,- -
The disease acts with IL.ihP:-.-lir.L' fatality.
Few of the stricken survive. The cure are so few,
and so rarely computed, that they are not irp..rei-

THE CITY OF GLASGOW BANK.
We ,.11-;. 1, to-day extracts from the admirable
summary and full report of the Edinburgh "Scots-
man" sufficient to give our readers a general idea
of the trial of the Directors and ',". ,,;or of the
above Bank. The books of the Bank appear to
have been kept in excellent order, and to tell the
truth on their face. The accountant produced the
Manager a correct '.i.,*'. -i t. which was falsified
at random by the Manager and Directors, as shown
in the 1876 sheet produced, to create a good public
opinion. The malicious action of the Board is
under these circumstances, much -. -.' The
cashier shews that false returns were made of the
stock of gold held on hand. The Bank had no so-
licitors or auditors. An audit system of the most
ordinary kind would have averted the catastrophe
or earlier precipitated it at a much less cost. The
affairs of all public companies should be subjected
to regular general audit by experts in accounts.
The public should withhold confidence from com-
panies which do not conform to such a system. It
is not at all unlikely that the Imperial Government
will devise some means of requiring a detailed in-
spection of the accounts of public corporations not
only in the interest of the shareholders but of the

"LETTERS FROM BERMUDA.",
Last winter John G. Doubleday, Esq., a brother-
in-law of Edward A. Abbot, Esq., went to Mentone,
.France, and was i.,:'-1- the medical treatment of
Dr. Henry Bennett, a well-known physician of
London, but spending his winters in the South of
Europe, devoting much time and labor to finding
out the best places of resort for invalids. Mr.
Doubleday had a copy of Mrs. Ear es's, "Letters
from Bermuda," and gave it to Dr. Bennett, who
writes to him : The pamphlet on the Bermuda
Islands was more especially valuable, and you will
perceive when you see my book that I have mainly
depended on the information it contained." This
