there were over 300 guests, among whom were the

VICTORIA (PHILOSOPHICAL) INSTITUTE
(Published in this Gazette by request of the Institute.)
This Society held its first meeting for the new
year at its House, 7, Adelphi Terrace, London, on
the 3rd of January,. the Vice-President in the chair.
The Honorary Secretary (Captain F. Petrie) re-
ported that upwards of a hundred members and
Associates had joined during the year now ended
of whom a very large proportion,-nearly one-half
-were Indian, Colonial and American, and the
total strength of the Institute was now nearly 900
including many English and Colonial prelates. Se-
veral leading scientific men at home and abroad
had written papers for the Society in furtherance of
its objects,-namely, the investigation of philoso-
phical and scientific questions, especially those said
to militate against the truth of Revelation. The
new arrangements enabled foreign and colonial
members, and leading scientific men in any country
to receive proof copies of the papers, and to give
their opinions in MS.; these were 'afterwards com-
bined with the discussions at the meetings held in
London, and the result was an inhancement of the
interest and value of the quarterly Journal; and
Colonial applications for admission as guinea Asso.
ciates were becoming very numerous. A paper no
The Early Destinies of Man" was then read by
Mr. J. E. Howord,F.R.S., F.L.8, &c., in which hbe
considered the Early Destinies of Mankind as view-
ed by Science, Philosophy, and Religion. Science, so
highly tolbe esteemed and valued, especially in re-
gard to the created universe, was first reviewed
when considering the existence of matter; she
however naturally failed when we came to consider
the beginning of things and the cause and creation
of matter. Philosophy was, for obvious reasons, an
unsafe and certainly an unpractical guide. Reli-
gion or Divine Philosophy alone seemed to lead our
inquiries to a satisfactory result. As regards man
the description in Scripture of his original destinies
represented him as worthy of his high original, but
fallen therefrom. This whole account was reflected
in the various traditions of the nations of the world
and embodied, though distorted, in its great religi-
ous systems. The present attempts to supersede or
set aside the religious history of mankind wai
fraught with mischievous consequences, and was in
itself eminently unreasonable. The whole course
of history refuted the figment of man raising himself:
by slow degrees to the conception of a Supreme
Being. As far back as we could trace, the earliest
ideas of man led to the diligent study of the hea-
venly bodies, and bore marks of high culture and
of strong religious tendencies. In conclusion, the
author considered that the early destinies of man
foreshadowed the completion of his history.
A few days ago we mentioned that the Russians
had complained to the British Government that the
Government of India had not respected that neutra-
lity in Central Asian affairs which, under certain
conditions, had been agreed to between Mr Glad-
stone and Count Schouvaloff. Their complaint was
founded upon the conduct of Major Butler, an offi
cer in the English Army, who, during a term o
leave of absence from his regiment in India, had
penetrated to Turkestan and taught the Tekke Tur
comans the arts of Eurppean warfare. They also
suspected that Major Butler had gone further thai
merely teaching the Tekkes military drill and the
construction of fortifications, and had been the mean:
of introducing among the clans English weapons o
war of a superior description. The Russian state
ments and suspicions have now been verified by nc
less a personage than Major Butler himself. In
letter to the Globe (London) he avows that three
years ago lie explored Turkestan and made accurate
mape of the territory In the Province of Akhol he
made surveys for military purposes. He also taugh
the Turcomans how to fortify Geok-Tepe, and wa
indirectly the cause of death of one commander wh<
tried to reduce it, ILomakin. Major Butler sayr
that if the Russians under Skobcleff succeed in re
during Geok-Tepe, they will have to encounter tw<
more fortifications equally strong before they read
Merv. He denies that Turkestan around Geok
Tepe is a barren wilderness. On the contrary, it i
a lovely, fertile, and pastoral country, inhabited bs
hardy races, who, if coniquered, could furnish 100,
000 fighting men to Russia's Central Asian armies
Major Butler's confessions are damaging to the
reputation of England for good faith, and she wil
certainly hear more about them from the jealous
Government dominated by the White Czar. Why
Major Butler should make them at all, knowing
that he muet compromise his own countrymen by
doing so, it would be difficult to understand if we
-did not remember that he has a grievance, and owen
Lord Lytton's Government in India a grudge be-
cause it "threw him over" and discountenanced his
operations in Tinrkestau.
Recent telegrams from England record heavy
storms throughout the country, and especially ii
London. One of the most notable storms by which
London has been visited is that of 1703 when the
loss in the city was calculated at two million pounds
Later great storms in Leodon are those of 1838 and
1861. It would appear that the last storm was ac-
companied by heavy rains in the Thames valley,
which led to the overflowing of the river. Since

Prof. R. Falb,in one of his late lectures, attributes
earthquakes to subterranean volcanic outbreaks,
produced by the cooling action of the hot liquid in-
terior of the earth in conjunction with the attraction
of the sun and the moon. The Nature says that, in
support of his opinion, he cites the fact that most
earthquakes occur when the sun is nearest us, viz.,
in January ; fewest in June; also that the number
of earthquakes increases in the months of April and
October, because of the strong attraction of the sun
an March 21 and September 23. A new theory of-
earthquakes has been advanced by Dr. Novak He
considers that besides the rotation of the earth on
axis and its revolution round the sun, a multiplicity
off motions of the earth appear in space, in virtue
of which the earth's axis and the equator shift their
position. This causes a variation of the forces in-
fluencihng the earth's form, and the earth has the'
tendency to adapt itself to this change. Hio also
considers a change of form of the earth to occur
through the shifting of the poles and the equator,
and this may have effect some time afterward where
the crust of the earth is weak.
JONAThAN GOING AHEAD AGAI.-American wige-
nuity, stimulated by' experiments made with a view to
tunnelling the bed of the British Channel, has put
forth an amazing project for cnonecting Great Britain
with the United States by a Transatlantic Railway I
Rejecting the -notion of driving a tuinel under the
ocean, astoo tedious and expensive, tho devisers pro-
pose to sink upon the Atlantic bed an iron tube some
3,000 miles long and 26 feet inr diameter, through
which two trains might travel simultaneously with
convenience and safety. As, however, this tube Would

1st February, 1881.
DEAR SIR,-I have read the letter signed Looker
on." Facts are as follows:
On Sunday the 9th January 1881 at 4 p.m. the
Flamborough was on soundings at 20 fathoms, with
Sandy Hook bearing W., and at 5 p.m. stopped the
ship on 12 fathoms, so that the time lost was a ne-
cessary delay during a thick snow storm. I was
informed by the pilot who boarded my ship that
no vessels had stirred during that weather, and
that even the pilot boats had anchored.
Leaving Bermuda on 20th January, I had 24
hours moderate weather, during the first 18 hours
of which the Flamborough steamed 168 miles. Then
commenced a strong gale from W. hauling gradu-
ally, from day to day, to N.W., continuin- during
the entire remainder of the voyage;, but I docked
my ship at Pier New 47' at 8 p.m. Monday the
24th January 1881, and immediately delivered the
mails. I invite "Looker on" to come and see me
on my arrival next trip.

DEAE SmI,-Since the discovery of petroleum in
the Vgited States, and its adaptation in its refined
state as kerosene to the wants of both rich and
poor, except in a few isolated cases we all depend
on it, n9t only for light, but also as fuel for many
of our cooking and heating stoves.
Just now the price is not only nearly double that
of a few weeks ago, but the quantity in the islands
is so small that we shall soon be left like the fool-
ish virgins of old.. .
This being the close season of the year, so ordain-
ed, by the powers that be, for the preservation of
game which the rigors of a northern winter may
drivo to our shores, in the Quebec S. S. Company's
'B6ats, no kerosene can be imported before the time
when none but Bermudians are likely to travel on
,this much favoured ltne.
.I When we are done with the said company, and
are all quite satisfied with monopolies a monument
should be erected to their memory which should
consist of an empty purse, an empty kerosene cask
mnd a broken lamp.

ing ten shillings as to the Justice shall 'sem
meet, together with the costs, and in default

manner as debts not exceeding three pounds;

victed shall again commit a similar offence,
every such offender shall on any subsequent
conviction, forfeit and pay any sum not ,ex-
ceeding one pound as to the Justice shall aem
Meet, together with costs, and in defauIt of

PAIN IN THE BACK, LUNGS, AND SHOULD-
TooRONTO, April 21st, 1850.
Dr. Clark Johnson.:
Dear Sir,-I have had a pain in the small of my
bick, also through my lungs and shoulders for more
than thee years; I have also hid liver complaint
and dyspepsia. I have tried doctors' and other me-
dicine, ut never received any relief until my atton-
tion was called to your valuable INDIAN BLOOD.
I PURIFIER; after its use a short time, I can say
that I have felt aPlter and more able to do my work
tlhan I have for the last two years.

77 Richmond Stre', West
I was '.rouble'd with derangement of the nervous
system. I was attended with by one of the best
Do:Itors in this part of the country, but obtained no
relief. Your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP relieved
me at once. I really do- not think any one in ill-
heilth using it can fail to receive great benefit.

Dear Sir,-I have used your excellent INDIAN
PLOOD SYRUP for Liver Complaint, and have re-
' erived great benefit therefrom. I can recommend it
to all sufferers.

RELIABLE FOOD PRODUCTS.
Great progress has been made within a few
years in manufacturing food products, and the
standard of quality has been raised to a point far
beyond that which formerly obtained. We claim
that this has, to a considerable extent, been due
to our efforts ; as the Largest Marufacturers and
Dealers in the world in this line, we consider it
our interest to manufacture only PURE and WHOLr.-
"soim goods, and pack them in a tidy and attrac-
tive manner. All goods bearing our name are
guaranteed to be of superior quality, and dealers
are authorized to refund the purchase price in
any case where customers have cause for dissa-
tisfaction. It is, therefore, to the interest of both
dealers and customers to use THURBER'S
