DrsPATCH.-The Mail Steamer Flamborough ar-
rived at Hamilton at 8-30 a.m. Wednesday with a
full cargo, and forty-eight hours later entered the
Harbour of St. Georges to load the balance of the
cotton saved from the Nonquam )Dormio. Between
"9 o'clock and 4 o'clock six hundred and nineteen
packages cotton were stowed on board, and by 5
o'clock the Steamer was going out of the Channel
en route for New York. The Agents gave the
Steamship extraordinary dispatch especially at St.
Georges for which they deserve credit.
The Flamboraugh has transported to New York
4069 packages cotton ex Nonguam Dormio finishing
by the cargo of the 18th.
We have the best authority for saying that the
vessel which ran into the R. M. Steamer Beta on
the 19th anuary when on passage from Halifax
to Bermuda, was the Barque Kedron, of Windsor1
N.S. The Captain admitted that he ported his
helm which caused the collision. The K. arrived
at her port of destination, Baltimore, having sus-
tained some damage to her stem.

R. B. Y. C. CRUISING SAIL RACE.
For the Race which took place on Friday last
there were six starters-the Psyche La Belle Ville,
Undine, Nautilus, Emerald and Dauntless. The
race was in the Sound, an old Bermuda course,
three miles between the Stake-boats. The wind
was moderate from about E.S.E., but was remark-
ably steady during the day. A lengthy descrip-
tion would probably be of not much interest to our
readers, so we content ourselves with recording the
fact that the boats rounded the winning stake-boat
in the following order-Nautilus, Emerald, Un-
dine, Dauntless, La Belle Ville, Psyche.
We understand that a protest was entered against
the Nautilus before the race on the ground that
she was fitted, it being a regulation that in such
races the boats are to sail in their ordinary cruising
sads. At a meeting of the Sailing Committee held
on Saturday last to consider the protest, a resolu-
tion was passed disqualifying the Nautilus from
winning on the ground that she did not sail in or.
dinary cruising sails.
The Emerald would thus become entitled to the
stakes, it there were any, and as it is may fairly
claim to have been the winner of the race.
Major General John Noble Arbuthnot Freese,
O,.B., Colobel Royal Artillery, died on the 25th nit.
at Southsea. He was born in 1813, entered the
army in 1832, and attained the rank of Major Gen-
eral in 1864. He served in the expedition to China
and in the Crimea, including Inkerman and Sebas-
topol, and had a medal and two clasps, the Turkish
medal, and the Order of the Medjidie.-Ilustrated

General Freese served with his Battery in Ber-

A THRILLING STORY.
At Ilhe auniver'arvy mission sermon in St. James'.
Methodist Church. Montreal, last Sunday, the Rev.
Dr. Peck, of Brooklyn, preached and he illusi4aed a
point in his sermon with the following excellent
It any of you, lie said, will go down to St. Johns-
bury, Vermont, you may see the man who gave me
the facts, I am about to relate. He was an Ameri-
ean sailor, and had sailed to a port in Chili. On
going ashore to enjoy his day of liberty, he became.
not to say intoxicated but a little hilarious. One of
the police officers, instead of coming up as your
police or our police would, and remonstrating with
him not to make a noise in the street, drew his sword
and sticking him a blow knocked him down. Mr.
Haskings, as an American sailor ought to have done,
under the circumstances, got up and knocked him
down in return. He was arrested and tried in a
language of which he could not understand a word,
with scarcely any defence to speak of. He was con-
victed and condemned to be shot at eight o'clock on
the morning after the following day. Mr. Loring
was the American Consul there, and he went to the
authorities and expostulated with them that it would
be monstrous to shoot the man. But these petty
tyrants paid no attention to his expostulations. On
the following morning, the day before the execution,
he went again and made a formal protest in the
name of the American Government against the ex-
ecution. But the petty tyrants would not even
respect this. The next morning came, and to use
Mr. Hasking's words, "I was brought out to the
field pinioned and bound to a post. They slipped a
black cloth over my face, and I heard them ordei
the soldiers to get ready. It was the custom for
the various consular officers to send up their flags at
eight o'clock in the morning. The office of the
English consul was right opposite that of the Amerf-
can consul and just as the former was preparing to
hoist the Union Jack. he looked out and saw a large
.rowd assembled on the field where the execution
was to take place. Rushing over to the office of the
American consul he said, "Great God! Loring,
you're not going to let them shoot that man ?"
What can I do 1" replied the American consul,
"I have protested against it; I can do no more."
Quick as thought the English consul shouted,
"* Give me your flag!" and in a trice the Stars and
Stripes were handed to England's representative,
and, taking his own flag in his hand, he hastened
across the field, elbowed his way through the crowd
and the soldiery, and, running up to the doomed
man, ho folded the American flag around him, and
then laid the Union Jack over it. Standidg aside a
few yards he faced the tyrants, and shouted defiantly,
SNow shoot, if you dare, through the heart of Eng-
land and America;" "and they aren'tt" exclaimed
the preacher while the immense crowd in the gallery,
forgetting the place and occasion, burst into applause.
He continued: Mr. Haskings said to me, with
tears streaming down his cheeks : "They loosed me
then, and oh how I longed to embrace those two
