these Islands, and their increase and progress dui
ing the last ten years, your attention is particular
S ly directed to the following instructions prepare
by the Commissioners for your guidance and as
(1.) Your first duty will be to obtain a thorough
knowledge of every part of your District. Yo
should make yourself well acquainted with it
boundaries; you should confer with the Enume
rators of the contiguous Districts, and to come to
clear understanding with them, so that no single
dwelling may be overlooked.
(2.) Under the. written authority of the Corn
missioners you may employ an Assistant, but i
must be at your expense, and you must superin
tend and hold yourself responsible for the accuracy
of his work.
(3.) You should carefully examine the House
.holders' Sch.edule and Other Forms, and familiarize
yourself with their intended use and the prope:
mode of filling them up.
(4.) In the early/ part of the week, commencing
28th March, it will be your duty to deliver for eaca
; Occupier in your District a Householders' Sche.
dule; you will number the same, and write the
name of each Occupier on the Schedule. As a
general rule, the term occupier" is to be under.
stood to apply to the resident Owner, or to a per.
son who pays rent for the whole of a house, or foi
any portion or apartment thereof; but instances
will eccur in which 'persons who are neither own.
ers nor tenants paying rent, as in Public Buildings,
&c., are to be treated as "Occupiers."
NoTS.-You are to except Houses and other places
of abide b'elongi.ng to H M. Naval Establishment, and
occupied by persons belonging to that Establish-
ment living on shore and their families, also Houses,
Barracks. Hospitals, Forts and Camps belonging to
H. M. War Departmcet. But as persons compris-
ing a portion of H. M. Land Forces and persons be-
longing to H. M. Naval Establishment, with their
SfAiilies, maybe in occupation of Houses NOT belong-
Shg to the War Department or to the Naval Estab-
lishment,'distinct Householders' Schedules will be
furnished, which, you are required to leave at such
Shousesin your District, taking every care to distin-
g ish such person's and their families from the gene-
il* 'popult tion ; but "Visitors" and Servants" and
,.others returned in such Schedules as Civilians,"
should be included in' the Civil Census. Under the
A4t Schedules of the said Naval and Military Popu-
nation are required to be filled up and kept separate
from the general return.
(5.) On"leaving the Schedules you will afford
any. explanation which may be asked for. You
Should also state in every case that you will call for
Sthe Schedule on Monday, the 4th April, that the
. answer should be written in by the morning of that
day, and that the Schedule must on no account be lost
.. or mislaid. You will, of course, observe the utmost
civility in-carrying this and all your other instruc-
tions into effect.
(6.) for your assistance in the collection of the
Schedules, and in making out the Abstract, you
e, on delivering to each Occupier a Schedule, to
anter ,on Form No. 2 the name of such Occupier and
number of Schedule, and then and there to collect, if
possible, and to enter on said Form, under their
several headings, all the particulars therein re-

ing provided yourself with a pencil or pen and ink,
some blank Schedules, and your instructions. You
o salpuld take with you also a bag, in which to depo-
sit the Schedules as collected so that none of the
said Schedules be lost. You should, if possible, visit
esr)y House on Monday, the4th, but if at the end of
that day any house remain unvisited, you must conclude
* your task on Tuesday, the 5th.
S 8.) If the Schedule is given to you filled 'up,
you must examine it to see if all the particulars ap.
pear to be correctly entered, and ask any questions
which may be necessary to satisfy yourself upon
this point; and when any errors are discovered,
you must draw a line through the erroneous words
without erasing them, and enter the correct words
over them in the proper columns. You should pay
particular attention to the columns headed "Religi-
ous Profession," and "Rank, Professiopi or Occu-
pation," taking care that what is inserted under
those heads is in conformity with thfa Instructions.
It is especially desired that the number of Land-
"owners" (persons possessing one acre of land at the
least) an "Scholars" (children "attending school"
or "receiving regular private instruction") should
be correctly returned. Children attending any
school must be returned as Scholars attending
school." You are also required to make a correct
return of the subjects of Italy (called for at the
instance of the Italian Government), and a correct
return of "Portuguese," 6" Swedes," and "other
Foreigners," for which provision has been made in
the ruling of the Summary.
(9.) f on inquiring for the Schedule it is deli-
vered to you notfilled up, you must fill it up your.-
self, asking all necessary questions. You should, if
possible, see the Occupier, and obtain the informa-
tion from him. In his absence, a member of the
family or any other competent person may supply
the required particulars.
(10.) If the schedule is lost or mislaid, you must
supply a fresh one; number it, and fill up the par-
ticulars as before directed, after which, read it over
to the occupier or person supplying the information,
who will sign it at the foot with his or her name
(11.) You should be very careful that no person
alive at midnight dwelling in the house on the night of
the 3rd April, and no inmate who was out travelling or
out at work during that night, and who returns home
on Monday morning, 4th April, is omitted from the
Schedule. No person dying before, and no child
born after, midnight to be enumerated.
(12.) You must not omit to take an account of
persons because you cannot get all the information
.required respecting them. If you can learn no
more than that a person had slept in the house on
the night of the 3rd of April, who had since gone
away and whose.name was unknown, you must not
fail to enter such person in the Schedule of the house,
stating the sex and the probable age, and writing
" ,ot Known" or N.K., where the name and other
particulars should be; and you are to take an ac-
count of Persons not dwelling in Houses wherever
you find them, or learn that they have been in your
SDistrict during the preceding night, using House-i

THE DERELICT BRIG "ALFRED."
(From a Correspondent.)
After it was seen that Pilot Scott had not boarded
the Brig, Mr. J. F. Smith, who was at the Lighthouse,
seeing that she had a signal of distress flying and the
ode letters A. V. (I am sinking) under it, started for
SS.meret for the purpose of obtaining a sail boat to go
tohar aeuiatnce. After some time he succeeded in
finding Pilot Pearman, who thought it was blow-
ing too heavily to go out, but afterihearing of the dan-
ger that the Brig was in. consented to go in the Pilot
Beat Secret if a crew could be obtained. About half- (
aiet nie the boat left Somerset with Mr. Smith, Pilot I
Peamaa. and four men who had volunteered to go,
vis., William Ebbin. Philip Brown, Joseph Smith, end
Alousenzo Lambert. When the boat reached the South-
side opposite the Lighthouse. Mr. Smith pointed out to
the pilot the direction in which the vessel was seen.
whe e left the Lighthouse at ten minutes after eight
o'clock. There was then a fearful sea running and heavy
sqnalls. After going off shore about five miles tlhe
,Brl was msade right ahead; it required the greatest
care to keep the sea from swamping the boat, and oc-
casionally the sail had to be lowered. When the boat
got near enough to be seen from the Brig, the Pilot
tg was hosted, they knowing that she would imme-
diately. on seeing a Pilotboat coming to her assistance,,
wear ship and edme towards them: the Brig then hav-
iat her head off shore, and under no other canvass than
a lower soaintopsail. When the Boat reached the Brig
it was at OuB seen that she had been abandoned. Af-
te semaUle delay in getting the "Secret" in position
to enable them to launch the dingy, the wind having
iaereased to a heavy gale and the sea running with
tremendous force, making a clean breach across the
MUD and Pilot Boat. Three men succeeded in board-

in the main yard, got the vessel before

A Ship's long boat, at least 22 feet keel, broad and
deep in proportion, was picked up capsized, about 15
miles, from the land in a S. W. direction, on Wednes-
day morning last by Pilot Gilbert in the boat Clyde,"
and towed into Somerset. There is no doubt that the
boat belonged to the derelict Alfred," of Swansea,
which was towed into St. George's on Sunday week, as
she had the same name and place of belonging, on her
stern. She had evidently drifted over some of the west-
ern reefs in the position as found, as her gunwale was
much broken and rubbed by the rocks and part of her
starboard side stove in, which latterinjury was probably
done while alongside of tle ship. It is to be hoped that
the crew has been rescued by some passing vessel from
a fate which circumstances poinLtout as almost too cer-
The fine little Steamer the Sea Queen, Captain
Kelly, which brought from Jamaica the important
despatches relative to the change of destination of
the 99th Regiment, had but five days passage,
though she encountered a very heavy head gale.
She is only of 38 tons register, 85 feet long and 16
wide; was built at Leith, Scotland, last November;'
is fitted with compound duplex engines, calculated
to run her at a speed of twelve knots per hour, with

On the morning of the day appointed for the
99th to embark on board the Orontes for Barbados,
orders were received that the destination of the
gallant corps was to be changed from the quiet
garrison duties of the West Indies to that of the
Seat of War in Africa. This order was received
whilst the Regiment was drawn up on the Parade
Ground at Prospect, with the view of being photo-
graphed. To some few, this change of destination
caused some depression, but when it became fully
known for what purpose the change was made,
Colonel Walker waved his sword over his head, and
said Boys we are off for the Cape." Three pro-
longed cheers were at once given by the men, and
they again cheered lustily when embarked on

The Head Quarters of the 86th Regiment will,
we understand, be removed from St. George's to
Prospect, either to-morrow or the next day. One
Company of this Regiment took over the Camp

the 99th, and was joined by another Company from
St. George on Saturday.
There will be four companies of the 86th, Head

Major Woodgate, of the 4th King's Own Regi-
ment-now stationed in the West Indies-came up
from Jamaica in the Sea Queen, having volunteered
his services to serve again in Africa, where he dis-
tinguished himself in the Zulu war. We under-
stand that he was in a very feeble state of health
when he embarked at Jamaica, as he was but slow-

and on passage up suffered much from seasickness.

Tanner has prepared a report of his journey to the

there. The rise begins gradually from 3,700ft. from
the Indus Valley, and goes up to 5,000ft. There is
no vegetation at all to speak of except two or three

13,000 is found only the Betula and a few other small
plants. The limit of vegetation is 16,000ft. There
is perpetual snow from 16,500 to 17,000, and glaci-

inland and upland plain of the Orange Free State
and the Transval.
Sir George Colley advanced that day with 870 Ifl-
fautry, being 400 of the 58th Regiment, a battalion
of the 60th Rifles, and the Naval Brigade from H.
M. S. Boadicea; also with 170 mounted troops, part
dragoons, part mounted infantry, and Natal mounted
Police; and with three guns, a rocket battery, and a
Gattling gun. He was met, three or four miles, n
his day's march, upon a steep and winding road, by
about twice his number of Boers, occupying covered
positions behind the huge rocks and boulders, to right
and left of the road. The artillery was sent to the
front, and dislodged them at first, but they took up
new positions which were still better sheltered.
They drove back the mounted British troops, and
when the 58th Regiment advanced it was received
with such a quick and well.directed fire by the
Dutch riflemen, on both flanks, that in a very shot
time 169 men, with several officers, were killed or
wounded. Colonel Bonar Millet Deane, formerly of
the 19th Regiment, who led the attack, and who was
Deputy Adjutant and Quartermaster-General, was
killed; also Major Ruscombe Poole, R.A.; Lieuten.
ant R. H. Elwes, Aide-de-Camp; Major Hingeston
and Lieutenants Dolphin and Baillie, of the 58th iand
Lieutenant Inman, of the 60th Rifles. The King's
Dragoon Guards lost two or three men killed, tie
Naval Brigade two, and there are five or six more.

camp, near Hatleys Hotel, where he has fortified
his position against attack, and will await reinforce-
ments. The 20th inst.- is considered the earliest
possible day for a renewed advance, He states that
the Boers allowed the British dead to be buried on
the ground, and that they have behaved with cour-
tesy to himself, and have shown all due consideration
for the wounded on our side,
It is reckoned that Sir George Colley will have
been reinforced, this week or next week, by the
arrival in Natal of the second battalion of the 60th
Rifles, the 83rd Regiment, the 92nd Regiment, the
97th Regiment, the 15th Hussars, and a battery of
artillery. Other troops should arrive about the 10th
inst., the 6th Dragoons (Inniskilling), a battery and
a company of mounted infantry; which will make a
total of 4500 men, in addition to his present force of
1000. These regular troops, with the Naval Brigade
must almost equal the whole number of adult men,
capable of fighting, in the entire Dutch population of
the Transvaal. There, cannot therefore, be any
doubt of the military power of the British Empire to
crush that small community; and we are quite sure
that no glory is to be gained by such an achieve-
ment. It will, however be found, much more costly
than is generally supposed, if the Boers, instead of
fighting a decisive battle withdraw far into the intk.
rior, and oblige their conquerors to march hundreds
of miles from the seaport of Natal. The capture of
Pretoria would by no means secure the submission
of the Transvaal.
Our Illustrations of this subject, in thepr.eent
Number, comprise one that shows the peculiar
method of fighting used by the Boers of South Africa.
They are, to a man, bold and expert horsemen, as
well as good marksmen with the rifle; and it is their
practice in war, just as in hunting lions or any other
fierce wild beasts, to ride up within shooting distance,
quickly dismount, fire deliberately at the approach-
ing foe, then at once remount and gallop off, but
only far enough to gain time for re-loading-as few
of them possess breach-loaders-after which they
return to the charge, and deliver a second shotG
But in the defence of a position which affords some
cover, like the one shown in our Illustration, they
will lie down or crouch behind the shelter, and take a
most careful aim; still keeping their horses," knee-

telegram says "between two and three thousand"

THE VIRTUES OF THE AUSTRALIAN
A late number of (London) Nature contains the
most positive evidence we have yet noticed respeet-
ing the value of the Eucalyptus in banishing the un-
wholesomeness of malarious districts. In many
fever-plagued regions, notably in Southern Italy,
Corsica, and Algeria, where, during certain seasons,
the atmosphere was literally pestilential the experi-
ment of cultivating the Eucalyptus in large numbers
was undertaken some years ago, because of its
reputed virtues, and the results are now said to be
very satisfactory. A recent report of the French
Academy respecting the value of Eucalyptus in ban-
ishing fevers from marshy districts of Corsica and
- Algeria, states in very positive terms, that where it
has been planted endemic fevers have been banished,
Specific mention is made. in this report of certain
pestilential localities in the neighborhood of Algiers,
where, since the planting of the trees, the region has
been rendered wholesome and habitable. This evi.
dence of the sanitary value of the Eucalyptus is
substantiated by other testimony no less convincing.
It is affirmed that large tracts of land have been
transformed, through the agency of the fever tree,
and that wherever it has been cultivated fevers are
found to diminish in frequency and intensity. The
most interesting evidence on this point is that
relating to the so-called Roman "Campagna," a
low-lying district surrounding the city of Rome,
and which has for years had a world-wide notoriety
as a veritable hot-bed of pestilence. The experi-
ment of planting the Eucalyptus in this region was
'extensively made some years ago by the Italian gov.
ernment, and themwnitary effects of this measure,
