From the Bermuda Book Almanack 1881.
The Gardener's Calendar.
AGRICULTURAL OPERATIONS FOR THE
MONTH OF MARCH.
Arrowroot should be taken up this month; it is
also a good time for planting it.
Beanm.-Broad Windsor and White Beans, Six
Weeks or other bush beans may be planted. Try
some bush beans.
Cucumbers should be planted at least by the mid-
dle of this month. February is the best time.
Plan| in rows 5 feet, apart and 2" to 3 feet in a
row, leaving one good plant in each place. White
Spine is the best. Mapnure liberally in the rows-
pigstye is the best. The more manure the more
cucumbers.
Irish Potatoes.-Mould but once. Loosen the
soil before moulding. Plant second size Bermuda
potatoes about 10th; they will give a crop in July.
The blight generally makes its appearance about
the 20th March, and usually with Southwest or
East winds, when accompanied with fine rain and
fog. In 1860 it appeared on the 3rd February.
Potatoes, therefore, should be planted early to be
strong enough to withstand the disease.
Indian Corn should be planted for a crop or for
fodder between the rows of Irish Potatoes. The
thin white kind (Gourd Seed) is best; it requires
rich soil well manured to bring it to perfection. It
should be planted 3 feet apart. Plant some sugar
cane for family use.
Melons.-Seed may now be put down but not
near cucumbers as they will mix. Plant musk
melons in rows 6 feet apart, 3 feet in the row, a
good shovel full of manure in each place, and
leave but one plant when'the seeds come up. Wa-
ter melon plants should have a space 6 feet square,
2 shOvels full of manure in each hill, and only one
plant to a hill, and they will be earlier than if put
further apart and not so liable to be disturbed by
winds. A few Bird-eye peas planted among them
is an:advantage to them.
Onions.-Keep very clean and soil loose. It is
high time to have boxes all ready.
Squash may still be planted for shipping. Only
bush variety.'
Tomatoes should be kept very clean and well
moulded so as to keep the fruit off the ground, or
it will rot.
Peas.-Plant any kind in any ground manured
for the purpose.
Trees.-Plant fruit and other trees, except olean-
der. If you have oleanders dig them up and
burn them and replace them with cedar trees, or,
best of all, hedge trees. Now is a good time to
bud aid graft trees. November and December are
better months for setting out trees of all varieties.
'" e"the Royal (azefe.
THE VEGETABLE MARKING BILL."
Ma. EI'rTot,-I see that our indefatigable Pro-
duce Agents are in the field for importing stencil
plates, but instead of soliciting orders why don't
they go into the business wholesale, and do it up
brown, when the "initials of the christian name
and surname, and the surname in full" will be re-
quired under tbhe Act just passed, of every owner and
shipper in the Colony, as well as of the Owners
out of the Colony, for whom the purchases' are
made here by agents, because the produce cannot
be shipped without the nampe of the owner first ap-
pearing on the paclager whether that owner reside
here or abroad! In msiort the packages like a Bill
of Exchban e& will :have to be en4ordd with the
name of eao*oriwer who circulates them. If John
Doe raies a crop, before he can offer it for sale
hep~tut an Ih initials of his Cristina tame
a ilhrnaine in-fllt" but before anyone can egal-
ly pmIrhase, the" fill initials of-both names, must
be put on"-this double.:work is bad enough where
only two owners are concerned and on the spot, br
suppose a piece of land planted a parts, and the
produce disposed of on joint account which is very
common here, fhbi the names of all the parties who
own the crop miist be put on, or the Act is not
complied with-then suppose the land belongs to
an Estate that has it planted on parts, what
namei are to ]be put on the packages to re-
present what it owns-the different'individuals in-
terested, or the executors, administrators, &c. ? If
an agent puihar ses or a firm abroad of course that
firnaire the'towners, and their names and initials
must also be put on the packages before they can
be legally shipped, and who is to know and super-
intend all these particulars ? If a man grows and
ships his own crop his surname is not required by
the Act, because he does not offer for sale," and
he is allowed to ship under initials, but 'suppose his
initials are the same as many others, what proof is
afforded by the initials alone in detecting fraud ?
But aside from all this, when the name of an owner
shall have been satisfactorily ascertained, what is
to proven asfraud respecting the sale or shipment of
vegetables where we have no inspection Law ?
Has not every person a'right to ship inferior pro-,
duce, small potatoes, green toniatoes, or small ripe
ones, And small onions either with or without
stalks'? Surely he has, well when this is seen
abroad and reported back to Bermuda, can it be de-
cided as fraud, and if it is, what penalty can be in-
flictiodfor It ? Can you hold up the name of the
party as afraudileit person, surely not, or he can
come on you in anaction for damages and defama-.
tiont' Bu -it is impossible for the owner of thel'
vegetables to see to the packing of all he may grow,
or pfarclasB, or ship-carelessness, ignorance or
wilfulness of a grower or packer may make the own-
er liable to a charge of fraud-but enough-the
Act is calculated to do as much harm as good,
both here and abroad, and will necessarily produce
znxch trouble," expense, confusion. and annoyance,,
and possibly injury, to our foreign cultivators, as
well as to us-poor -moultivated

The Alhambra was anchored in quarantine at 8-30 a.m.
28th, and not being provided with a clear bill of health
issued by the British Consul at Martinque, she had
the alternative of waiting in quarantine for several
days or of proceeding at once on her voyage to New

proceeding to sea with a Tag Boat, grounded on a mud
ank : returned tP, the Quarantine Station to await high
tide, and as the vessel made no water, and the Captain
being assured that no damage was done, and, consulting
the Agent. and with the consent of the Pilot, proceeded
to sea the following day. On the 18th experienced
heavy weather; on the 19(h the vessel was hove down,
which caused the cargo to shift, and was righted by
retrimming cargo; 20th 'the wheat came up through
the pumps, which were sometimes completely choked ;
had to go down the man-hole, lift the pumps and clear
them ; at one time had 3 feet water in the hold; had to
clear the pumps constantly until arrival at Murray's
Anchorage.-John S. Darrell. Agent.

weather, out 26 days,-Agents, W. U. Hyland & Co.
We understand that Murray's Anchqrage presents
quite a busy appearance just now, with its fleet of dis-
abled vessels, and lighters at work.
We learn there are five large vessels anchored there,
the smallest of which is about 1050 tons. Hulks, &c.,
are employed to lighten four of them, to enable them
to be brought into port, to effect necessary repairs.
These ships aggregate upwards of 5874 tons; and
the vessels and lighters employed in lightening thera.
something like 1876 tons ; making about 7550 tons inl
the Anchorage, which is unusual, if not unprecedented,
HI. M. S. *" Orontes" was to leave England on the

Indies the'99th Regiment. She will probably call at

LONDON, Feb. 21.-In the House of 'Commons
this afternoon Lord Colin Cambell asked whether
the government had instructed its commanders re-
lative to the terms on which the suspension of hos-
tilities with the Boers may be agreed to. Mr.
Gladstone replied that the government had taken
steps which appear to them best qualified to pre.
mote a satisfactory settlement and stop the effusion
of blood, but he declined to enter Into details. The
Standard has reason to believe that the government
has been informed that negotiations have been be-
gun between General Colley imnd the Boers, and it
is expected a truce will soon be arranged. The
arls.$Le In Baputo Ltandwill be commencedion the
18th nast., and willend on the 24th.

THE IRISH QUESTION.
The Irish question will soon enter upon a more
interesting phase. The government seems to be
resolved to suppress the Land League and the agi-
tation arising out of it. In a few days the bill will
pass giving the Irish Secretary the right to send
every member of the Irish party to jail. Already
Mr. Davitt is in prison, and, although the pretext
for his arrest looks too much like a subterfuge to be
worthy of a great government, the act itself fore-
shadows the government policy. It will be difficult
for Mr. Gladstone to withstand the public opinion of
England, which demands the suppression of the
League, not merely by the arrest of ticket-of-leave
men like Davitt, but the arrest of the leaders. Mr.
Parnell will be compelled to withdraw from his agi-
tation or submit himself to the laws. A story is
that one section of the Irish members will go over
to Ireland to arouse the people and incur arrest;
another will go4o France to manage the agitation
from that country. Mr. Parnell will visit America
to raise money, and the Land League will be left
ostensibly in the hands of ladies. In any event we
cannot help seeing that Mr. Parnell has wasted his
opportunities for usefulness.
Mr. Parnell's position as an Irish leader with a
great following is either in Ireland among his people
or in the House of Commons among his peers. He,
of course, with his extreme views, cannot have all
that he wishes from Parliament. But he could have
gained a great deal. The government is friendly to
Ireland. No government for a generation has had
within its ranks statesmen as anxious to serve Ireland
as Mr. Bright, Mr. Forster and Mr. Chamberlain.
If Mr. Parnell were a statesman, thinking of the
immediate and ultimate good of his people, he would
have strengthened the hands of the government, taken
from it all that it would give, and thus secure for
Treland a better land bill than she has ever known
This would have been a practical gain. Then, hav-
ing gained that, he could have revived his agitation
and pressed on for repeal, home rule, or whatever
he deemed best for Ireland,
This seems to be the common sense view of the
opportunity Mr. Parnell has lost, not alone for him-
self, but for Ireland.' Nor can we seed what he has
gained. A policy of uproar soon wears itself, out and
so far as gain for Ireland is concerned we have had
nothing but a policy of uproar.

POTATOES FOR THE LONDON MARKET.-The S. S.
Ceto left on Tuesday last for London, having received
on board here, besides other articles, 1500 boxs, and 40
bls. of new potatoes, some of them of the Kidney de.
seription, a kind. not commonly grown here, but
considered the best for the London Market. Most of
these potatoes were boxed some 12 or 14 days previous
to their being shipped. We hope they will reach their
distant market in good condition, and bring remunera-
tive' prices.

The Agricultural Meeting advertised to take
place in Pagets Parish failed of its purpose owing
to the absence of the gentleman who was to have
taken the chair. The attendance was large, and
no doubt the interchange of opinions was profitable.
Such meetfiut if properly arranged, may prove
productive of much benefit to the Agriculturists.

R. E. WEBSTER,
Colonial Secretary.
AN ACT to provide for the Marking of all
Packages of Vegetable Produce to be shipped
from these Island.
[18 January, 1881.]
WHEREAS considerable loss and incon-
venience has arisen from the practice of Ship-
ping Potatoes Onions, Tomatoes, and other
vegetables from these Islands to other Markets,
without the name of the owner, or other dis-
tinguishing mark being thereon, to enable
fraudulent packers to be discovered and punish-
ed, and it is deemed expedient to put a stop
to the said practice:
We, therefore, &c., be it enacted, &c.:
I. If any person shall offer for sale any
Potatoes, Onions, Tomatoes, or other vege-
tables in such packages as are usually used
for the shipment of such vegetables by vessels
for other markets, without the initials of the
christian name and surname in full of the
owner being branded or marked in paint or
ink or other material not easily removed there-
on, in distinct and legible letters of not less
than half an inch in length, every such offend-
er shall, on conviction before any Justice of
the Peace, forfeit and pay any sum not exceed-
ing ten shillings as to the Justice shall seem
meet, together with the costs, and in default
of payment to be levied by distress in like
manner as debts not exceeding three pounds
may be recovered, and if any person so con-
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 seem
-meet, together with costs, and in default of
payment to be levied by distress in like man-
ner as debts not exceeding three pounds may
be recovered:
Provided, that nothing herein contained
shall be construed tto apply to any person who
shall offer for sale any Potatoes, Onions, To-
matoes, Melons, Pumpkijs ox other veget-
ables,'in open packages, or bags, for consump-
tion in these Islands.
II. If any person shall purchase or ship, or
cause to be shipped, any Potatoes, Onions,
Tomatoes, or other vegetables in such pack-
ages as are usually used for the shipment of
such vegetables by vessels from these Islands
for other markets, without the full initials of
the christian name and surname of the owner
being branded or marked in paint or ink or
other material not easily removed thereon, in
distinct and legible letters of not less than
half an inch in length, every such offender
shall, on conviction before any Justice of the
Peace, forfeit and pay any sum not exceeding
forty shillings as to the Justice shall seem
meet, together with costs, and in default of
payment to be levied by distress in like man-
ner as debts not exceeding three pounds may
be recovered, and if any person so convicted
shall again commit a similar offence, every
such offender shall, on any subsequent convic-
tion, forfeit and ppy any sum pot exceeding
three pounds, as to the Justice shall seem meet,
together with costs, and in default of payment
to be levied by distress in like manner as debts
not exceeding three pounds may be recovered.
III. If shall be the duty of the Colonial Se-
cretary to require this Act to be printed in the
Royal Gazette on the first Tuesday of every
month during the first six months after it shall
go into operation.
IV. This Act shall go into operation on the

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.
II i ii '- ______________


BESIEGED BY EORSS. i
LoNDON, Feb. 6, 1881.-An Amsterdam newvs-
paper states that Menotti Garibaldi has been re-
.quested to accept the command of a corps of volun-
teers for the Transvaal. The Standard's despatch
from Newcastle, Natalstates that the garrison of
Wakkerstroom is holding'out well. It has made a
sortie and captured some stores. An official tele-
gram announces that the garrisons of Pretoria,
Lydenburg, and Rustenberg are well provisioned.
A despatch from Durban says that the Ninety-
seventh foot has started for the front.
FROM THE SEAT OF WAR.-Authentic news of
the Boer outbreak has at last arrived from Cape
Town. Hostilities began on the 16th of December,
when the Boers entered Potchefstroom in force.
Potchefstroom is the largest town in the Transvaal
territory, although not the official seat of govern-
ment. It has from fifteen hundred to two thousand
inhabitants, and is pleasantly situated on a river
called the Mooi," or Fair River, which, unlike
African rivers in general, is always full of water and
runs level with its banks.' The town is a long,
straggling place, built after the good old Dutch fash-
ion, with houses standing apart in large gardens of
fruit trees, well watered with running streams.
Potchefstroom was garrisoned at the time of the
outbreak by some 300 troops of Her Majesty's
Twenty-first regiment, including a small party of
artillery, under the command of Colonel Bellairs,
C.B. On entering the town the Boers proceeded to
haul down the British flag, when, according to one
account, they were remonstrated with, but persisted
in their intentions when the captain on duty drew
his revolver and fired, wounding in the arm the man
engaged in the act of hauling down the flag. Upon
this the Boeis fired a volley, killing and wounding
several of the bystanders, who seem then to have
retired to the court house, where they barricaded
themselves and stood on the defensive. This party
stood a siege of two days, but on the morning of the
18th, finding all hope of escape cut off and being
without food or water, and having lost Captain Falls,
Mr. Wood, and one soldier killed and two others
wounded, and having with difficulty prevented the
Boers from firing the building, which had a thatch
roof, they were compelled to surrender, and accord-
ingly Major Clarke, Commandant Raaf, and thirty
others, including several officials and twenty soldiers,
fell into the hands of the Boers. After effecting
their purpose in this quarter the Boers sent a sum-
mons to the fort, giving Colonel Bellairs till 4 p m.
to surrender. The reply to this was a cannonade
from the troops, and the Boers immediately opened
fire. On the 20th they kept up a continued fire,
and on the 21st. they made an assault with 1,000
men, which was repulsed with decided loss. In the
attack they managed to secure some seventy horses
and mules which had been driven out of the fort by
Colonel Bellairs to save provisions. Since this
failure the Boers decided to closely invest the fort
and starve out the garrison. The fort is described
as being well able to resist a coup de main and to be
well supplied with water. To the above particulars,
which were given in the Friend of the Free State,
published at Bloemfontein, it was added that the
situation of Pretoria was deplorable,-the town
almost deserted, the stores sacked, and the country
patrolled by parties of Boers, who offered violence
to all who belonged to the English party.
DEFEAT OF THE NINETY-FOURTH -The disas-
ter to the Ninety-fourth regiment took place on the
20th December, four days after the fighting began
at Potchefstroom. The most conflicting stories
were circulated, and reports of Boer treachery were
eagerly credited by those who endeavoured to stir
up strife. The account even of the messenger seems
somewhat conflicting. The head-quarters of the
Ninety-fourth were ordered from Lydenberg to
Pretoria to carry oat a concentration of the British
forces in preparation for the possibility of an out-
break, They had reached Bronker's Spruit, about
thirty.eight miles from that town, with a train of
thirty-seven wagons. According to Egerton's (the
wagon conductor) report he was riding fifty yards
ahead of the column with the colonel to fix on a site
tor the camp, when a sudden stoppage of the military
band, which was playing, caused them to look round,
and they then saw 150 Boers drawn up in skirmish-
ing order 500 yards to the left of the column. The
colonel at once galloped back and ordered his men
to close up. Egerton says this was done, but later
on he says that the re guard of twenty men was far
behind and was captured at once by the Boers.
Probably the concentration was only possible as re-
gards the main body, as the time would scarcely
permit all the wagons to come up. The Boers then
despatched a mounted messenger without arms,
who .delivered, to the colonel a sealed letter,
written in English, ordering him to halt and await a
reply to a formal communication which had been
made fo Colonel Lanyon to the following effect:-
We have the honor t4' inform you that the govern.
ment of the South-African Republic have taken up
their residence at Heidelberg; that a diplomatic
Commissioner has been sent by them with des-.
patches to His Excellency Sir W. Owen Lanyon;
that until the arrival of His Excellency's answer
we don't know whether we are in a state of
war or not; that consequently we cannot allow
any movement of troops from your side and wish
you to stop where you are, we not being at war
with Her Majesty the Queen nor with the people
of England, who, we are sure, would be on our side
if they were acquainted with the position, but on.-
ly recovering the independence of our country.
We do not wish to take up arms, and therefore in-
term you that any movement of troops from your
side will be taken by us as a declaration of war, the
responsibility whereof we put upon your shoulders,
as we know what we will have to do in self-defence.
This letter was signed by Mr. P. J. Joubert in be-
half of ihe Triumvirate. Two minutes were given
to Colonel Anrtruther for his reply. The :Colonel
replied that his orders were to go to Pretoria, and
that he intended to do so. Upon this the conference
ended, the Boer Messenger galloped back, and as
Soon as he reached his men firing began. The Brit-
ish were drawn up in front of the wagons in skir-.
misbing order. Egerton says that they fought well,
but that the firing was extremely wild. The Boers,
firing from behind trees, picked off all the officers in
ten minutes, and in a quarter of an hour put 120 of
the small force hors de combat, of whom forty were
killed. On their side only one was reported killed
and five wounded. Seeing no chance of success
Colonel Anstruther gave the order to surrender, and
this disastrous action terminated in a complete sue-


cesa for the Boers, who captured or destroyed the
wbole force and took possession of the entire bag-
gage train.
Tus TREATMENT OF RINGWORM.-A Fleet Sur-
geomaj itea as follows to the British Medical Journal .
-Sir,-The difficulty experienced in the treatment
of ringworm is known to everyone who has seen
much of this disease. I therefore think your readers
will be glad to hear of a remedy which I have lately
ustd with copmlete success. Struck with the sim-
ilarity that exists between the disease known in the
East Indies Ms dobz-itch and ringworm, and know-
ing how rapidly the former yields to the application
of gunpowder, I was induced to try the active prin-
ciple ot this subarance, chrysophanic acid, in the
proportion of one drachm to one ounce of vaseline.
The result has been the rapid destruction of the
fungus, and consequently a complete cure. Chrys-
ophanic acid has been recommended in the treal-
ment of psoriasis, but I am not awame of its having
been used hitherto for ringworm.
'" My darling," said he, "what a delicious taste

your lips have." Then she sprang up and cried :
" Goodness, John, have you been eating, my lip.
salve ?"


ME!O()iY.
This formation of memory starts with conscious-
ness, and has its moral aspect. Where the inter-
ests centre in self and its immediate surroundings,
the memory cannot be laying up treasures for tho
future. We see the difference in the youngest
children. It is a great thing, of course, to teach in
an interesting way so as to make attention as little
painful an effort as possible. The child so taught
starts at an advantage; but there is a subtle form
of selfishness that eludes all benevolent aims to en-
large the range of interests, that refuses to see be-
yond the charmed circle, and shackles and confines
the memory at the outset. We may almost fore-
tell of some children that tLey will remember what
now occupies them so deeply, because we see no un-
dercurrent of self at work interfering with the free
reception of new congenial ideas ; while others take
in new thoughts with a reserve; half occupied with
themselves, if they attend, turning the new acquire-
ment into an occasion for present show and.self-
glory. The phrase hits the fancy" explains this
posture of mind. Nothing hits the fancy of some
children apart from self; with others, the object
which hits and seizes the attention stands single,
and takes them out of themselves. Sir Walter
Scott owns to this memory. I had always a won-
derful facility in retaining in my memory whatever
verses pleased me," quoting the old Borderer who
had no command of his memory, and only retained
what hit his fancy. My memory was precisely
of the same kind ; it seldom failed to preserve most
tenaciously a favourite passage of poetry, a play-
house ditty, or above all, a Border-raid ballad ; but
names, d:ites, and other technicalities of history es-
caped me in'a most melancholy degree." Of course
this early passion of interest implies a bias. The
memory here came by nature, was not cultivated
by self mastery; I ut, while following a bent, it
carried him out of himself and beyond himself,
which it is an important function of memory to do.
All people have not only a memory but a tenacious
memory for some things. If for nothing useful, if
not for things observed, for things learned, for
thoughts, for events, for persons, for the outsides of
things, for words, for names, for dates-yet for fol-
lies, vanities, trifles, grudges connected with selt ;
and especially for losses, wrongs, slights, snubs, dis-
paragements, injuries, real or fancied, inflicted in
the course of a lifetime on that dearself. If memory
is not put to its legitimate uses, subjected to rule,,
given work to do, it degenerates into a mere de-
posit, are siduum of worthless refuse, degrading the
nature it should evelate, supplying the mind with
unwholesome food, on which it largely broods. and
ruminates. Of the same class is the memory rous-
ed out of its lethargy by the presence of others-
as for example, on the revival of former acquaint-
ance-into a sort of malignant activity; a memory
dissociated from sympathy, recalling precisely the
things which ought to be forgotten-misfortunes,
humiliations, and the like--and forcing on reluc-
tant ears with unflinching accuracy of detail facts
long erased from busier, fuller, better-trained
memories, as though inspired by a sort of necessity
to set loose the unmannerly crowd of revived images
where it gives most annoyance. How often we
wish for others the reverse of what we desire for
ourselves! If they could only forget !-Blackwood's
Magazine.

Dr. Clark Johnson :
DEAR SIR,-When I visited year manufactory last
autumn, I was suffering from a fearful pain in the
face and head-the physicians call it neuralgia-and
when you recommended me to try your INDIAN
BLOOD SYRUP I had no faith in it; but in feed I

ASLEEP FOR 110 HOURS.
SANDUSKY, Ohio, Jan. 25 -There is no change
in the condition of Dora Sarer, the servant in the
family of J. C. Bloker of this city, who was men-
tioned in these despatches as having been asleep
since' last Friday evening. Physicians pronounce
the case a very remarkable one. The girl retired
last Friday night in apparently perfect health. From
that times up to this writing-11 o'clock to-night--
she has been sound asleep. She is sensitive to
touch upon any portion of the body, and swallows
mechanically whatever liquids or solids are forced
into her mouth. The attending physicians say that
the primary cause of the. girl's present condition is
rheumatism which has developed into a sort of con-
gestion or engorgement of blood about the brain.
She has, up to this time, been asleep 110 hours.-
Special to the Cleveland Herald.

Leave your place in the world for ten minutes
and when you come back somebody else has taken
it, but when you leave the world for good, who
remembers that you ever had a place even in the
parish register ?

Dear Sir,-1 have been suffering for years with
Dyspepsia and Indigestion and Kidney Complaint.
sni have tried a great many remedies, but without
effect. I became very bad and could not leave my
bed. I sent to your agent, William Dier, for a hot-
tie of your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP and I do not
hesitate to say that,it saved my life. I am com-
pletely cured, and feel like a new man. Last week
my son was taken rick with severe headache, and a
few doses of your valuable medicine cured him.
