Petmbroke Grammar' Sehool Athle-
tic Sports.
The fifth annual meeting of Sports held by this
School Was celebrated at Tickers Field, on Thurs-
day the 28th April, and although the day open.
ed tth very gloomy prognostications of ram,
which were unfortunately realized in the after
noon, yet wemay fairly chronicle this year's perfor-
mances as second to none of its predecessors. The
8 Chases were, as usual run over the Pembroke
i. and. at the hour appointed for starting a
goodly number of friende- a visitors gathered to
witness the: fun. The ditches had late 'been
widened and the heavy rains had filled them to
overflowing and perbap-their formidable appear.
an. med many of the chiokenhearted to think
twice before venturing toface them after a pump-
iag run over the heavy soaked ground. The second
class waa first started and brought five competitors
to the poi. A capital start sent them all away to
the first dlth, Cameron leading followed close by
W. Jones and A. G. Butterfield, however the lead.
ing boy so0n fell out and the real work lay between
the two last named who ran very pluckily all
through but Buterfield's superior staying powers
told at the finish and latidei him an easy winner,
W,.4ones and Ba Trimnuinghan sharing 2nd and 3rd
hoor s.. The st clase soon got away with Hillie
Bnuuiltd, E. Gosling, S; Walker in the van,
whtle the rest quickly tailed off and finally stopped.
This order was maintained nearly half over the
eoure heu. R.Ooalink took the lead but making
a mistake in the oou-e he had to retrace his steps
giving Butterfleld an advantage of which he could
not a vkeul hiise is Gosling spurting up to him
again gained thelead and taking the water jumps
in gallant style finished an'easy winner In ten min-
utes 40 seconds, H, T.Buttefield dan S. Walker
running 2nd andi 3rd respectively.
Toe ,lat Races at long distances were a decided
improvement on-last year's running both in style and
pace, E. Gqsw"ng if he had been pressed in the mile
would bVmaVde better time. In the half mile the
splendid running of J. Beyl- and Aubrey Butter-
el waea much admired and applauded. The sprint
ee.* were olosel contested. but owing to their
beifd run duringthe rain the time was not so good
as expected. The, Strangers 100 yards, was
eryem-t won, by. Mr. Aiby, R.N. The ald
Bo i tUrdl oe Ra was run in heavy rain but pro.
4u a Gcap 9.i9ntest finally won by H. Hinson.
TWOe sppery state of the ground caused many ludic-,
roxu aibles causing much amusement but luckily
no accident occurred. In jm.iM g the prettiest
perf ormne wa t_,a of ,itte B. i. ;Walker who
cleared'a height of 3 feet p inches although hardly
haltfoot tae himself. Te ole jump was very
cleverly won by S. D. Walker. Where all did so
well it would be an endless task to quote every
d prfoan .so. we .fe our. riders to the
detailed account 0(hg laya plgrame 4as given

of many kind friends Mr. lay was enabled .to- dis.

An astonishing series of forgerles have been dis-
covered in Lynchburg, Virginia, involving Major
Wm. P. Hart, superintendent of the Pertha zinc
mines and works in Pulaski county. It appears
that Hart negotiated with A. M. Davies, banker,
of Lynchburg, some months ago for a loan of va-
rious amounts, aggregating $15,000, ln notes
drawn by himself and indorsed by Joseph Cloyd,
a well-known capitalist of Pulaski county..

An Interesting surgical experiment was made
the other day by Dr. Banton, of Cleveland, Ohio,
who for some years have made engrafting a
subject of special study. From an account given
of the experiment by Dr. Banton to a reporter of
the Cleveland Herald.& seems he was so confident
a change of fingers between two persons could be
effected without difficulty that he determined to
make a trial. He aceordinglyarraned with Frank
and Augastus Filer, aged respectively twenty-five
and twenty-eight, for a considerable sum of money
to undergo the necessary operation. With the
help of his assistant, Dr. Banton, first amputated
the little finger of the hand of Augustus and then
the little finger of the hand of Frank, engrafting
the part amputated from one person to that of the
uther, putting four sutures In each. The fingers
were dressed and the men departed, with strict in-
junctions to say nothing about the matter and to
return on the following moaning to have their fin-
gers re-dressed. During the operation quite an
amusing Incident." as Dr. Banton termed it,
occurred. Mr. Frank Filer's finger, after being
amputated, was wrapped in a towel and placed on
the steam-heater. The assistant not noticing the
finger, used the towel, and when the finger was
wanted to place on tho stump of Aqgustue it could
not be found. Afteran an anxious search of a few
minutes it was discover* by Dr. Banton in a buck-
et, and a hearty laugh" was the only result of
what might have proved a awkward affair. The
entire operation was performed in less than a hour
without the aid of anmathetics or stimulents. Both
men, by latest accounts, are doing well. There was
a union of the parts and a partial circulation, giv- '
lang a normal appearance to the finger as far down
as the nail, twenty-four hours after the operation.
One of the men said he already felt sensation in
what had been his brother's finger. The cases, It is
reassuring to hear, were being watched by Dr.
Banton with the most careful attention.

From the Turks' Islands Royal Standard, March 26.
The last mail from Jamaica has caused much
apprehension as to the future of these islands, occs.
signed by the Jamaica legislation in reference to
them. We have copied from the Gleaner a portion
of the discussion in their Legislature, which led to
the passing an Act No. 26 of 1881, imposing on us
the expense of 5,000 to Build a Light-house on
Sand Cay. The money to be advanced by bthe Ja-
maica Government, we paying the moderate interest
of 7 per cent. Besides it is generally believed that
after the Light-house is Luilt, we shall be expected
to pay a considerable subsidy to enable the Cunard
steamers to pass through our passage on their way
Northward from Jamaica. All this for the pur.
poses of a general commerce and the advantages at
amaica commerce. Of course, these ideas can
never be realized, but we shall be great sufferers
until our oppressors are C l6niiced of their futility.

Supplement to the Bermuda BRyal Gaette, Hamilton, Tuesday, May 10th, 1881.

For the Royal Gazette.
There seems to be a good deal of hard straining
on the part of the article over the Signature of
Jenkin's Boiler" in the Colonist of the 27th April
and the Editor of .that paper combined upon the
Harbour question, when the former resorts to
perversion of the fair and reasonable interpretation of
language, and the latter to childish jesting or at-
tempted wit about marking the harbour of Ham-
ilton a fish-pond with a breakwater on the North
Shore of Pembroke," &c., &c. Now when these
bolsters have to be used for arguments, then argu-
ments must be pretty well exhausted.
Jenkin's Boiler" states that Castle Harbour"
is almost as much exposed as Murray's Anchor-
age," it is well he saved himself by the word almost,
but mark his reason and explanation. Castle
Harbour is exposed to the East, South and South-
west winds" but are these the winds that cause so
many shipwrecks at Murray's anchorage? Is it
not from the North winds that danger comes, and
from these Castle Harbour affords protection? That
disposes of his remarks on that ground, and he
cannot help admitting that there is "not quite so
much sea" in that land locked basin, as there is in
Murray's anchorage in the open ocean! Low land is
quite sufficient protection against Southerly gales.
He has fine game over a "green horn" for re-
peating what some other correspondent had stated
respecting the wealth of St. George's in saying that
to deepen and straighten its entrance for ships
drawirrg much over twenty feet would cost more
than the whole town is worth," and says he
knows of one person in that town that could bear
the whole expense of deepening the channel, and
would scarcely feel it." Well done for St. George's
for you certainly have been studying up Dick-
ens" Pray upon whose estimate did that individual
find out what that whole cost would be ? Surely it
must have been from some member of that family
of green horns" with whom he seems to be so
intimate, for I have never yet heard of one
that has been extant defining the pounds, shillings
and pence, and imagine it must be confined to one
"Jenkin's Boiler." But will this one man be will-
ing to advance the money and take such security
as he can get ? Will the town be responsible by
subscription or by taxation ? The expression
would cost more than the whole town is worth"
is a figure of speech only, bearing on relative value,
i.e., in appealing to the country for the necessary
grant of money thus : St. George's is not worth to
the vlolo country what it would cost to make it
the required harbour for ships of great draught.
Any green horn knows that. A few rich indivi-
duals residing in a town, and who may remove from
it aud carry their wealth with them, are not to be re-
lied upon as the "wealth of the town" to respond for
any Chimerical undertaking, therefore that is no
reply t, the quotation given above. He may be
very correct in saying that "if the money that has
been expended on the Stagg's channel and Timlin's
Narrows had been spent on St. George's channel it
would have made it a first class port years ago."
And he might have added that if one-eighth or one
quarter of it had been spent in improving the chan-
nel into Castle Harbor, that would have been a
first class port also, and a feeder to the business of
St. George's that would have secured to it forever
the trade that is now causing so much discussion.
As to the safety of Castle Harbor, the communica.
tion of Stag Channel" in the Royal Gazette of
29th March (ulto) admits it and says "there is no
doubt about the safety of ships once in its placid
waters." Although writing dead against the pro-
ject, he cannot help admitting this truth Then
upon his theory all that is required is to remove
the few rocks now in the way. With the remainder
of Jenkin's Boiler's" long article in yesterday's
Colonist we have no fault to find, and doubt not
that facts and circumstances bear out his state-
Now as to the Colonist's ingenious remarks that
Stag Channel' has proved to a demonstration the
impossibility of taking vessels of large draught into
Castle Harbor," I simply reply that he has done
no such thing -except perhaps to the mind of the
Editor. As to Lis slq,upon the report of a
FrieTnd to A11" in the TRoal Gazette of the 19th,
April if he will read that over again, and do jus-
tice to its wauing, he will withdraw it because the
writer was giving the soundings as they now are,
and not what they will be if the few rocks in the
way were removed; take them away at nogreatex-
pense, and then all the other soundings come in play.
The question simply resolves itself into this. Is it
practicable without an enormous cost, such as the
Country cannot and will not bear, to make the port
of St. George's as approachable for ships of great
draught as Castle Harbor can be made at some
very moderate cost such as the country can afford,
and doubtless will, to secure the trade that we see
looming up in the no distant future ? As to "an
Imperial officer high in authority discountenancing
less than twelve months ago the removal of the ob-
struction at Castle lIarbor," let the Public enquire
upon what grounds he discountenanced it.? Was it
the expense, surely not, for the Imperial Govern-
ment would have nothing to do with that. Was
it not that the Harbor would be too good, and afford
accommodation to an enemy ? But I have already
disposed of that idea in the Royal Gazette of 19th I
April in a communication headed New Strata-
gems." In reply to the Colonist's reference to "a
ridiculous proposal," I would ask him if anything
can be more ridiculous than attempting in the present
and prospective state of the Public Treasury to
adapt the Channels to the port of St. George's to
the convenient and safe entrance of ships drawing
much over twenty feet of water ?

Mr. Thompson, late Secretary of the Navy, was
recently before the House Committee on the Inter-
oceanie Ship Canal project.-Mr. Thompson is
one ot the American Representatives of the Panama
Canal Company-on which occasion he spoke as
"I hear it is stated by many of the best men in
the country, and I read it in many of the best news-
papers in the country, that the scheme of building a
Canal at Panama by what is called a French corpor-
ation is in opposition to what is known as the Mon-
roe doctrine. I do not think so. On the contrary,
I think that it affirms the Monroe doctrine. I think
that the Monroe doctrine means simply that this
scheme shall not be interfered with by the Govern-
ment of the.United States. What was the Monroe
doctrine ? It was a Presidential declaration, and
nothing more. I do not think it would do to say in
this country, and under our institutions, that the
declaration of a President (how frequently soever
it may be repeated) can constitute a policy. This is
a popular Government. In order to establish a policy
the legislative power must be invoked, not the ex-
ecutive. The United States of Colombia is an in-
dependent Government, made so by the achievement
of its revolutionary independence, just as our Gov-
ernment is independent. Has it not the power and
the right to construct internal improvements when
it pleases, or to omilato do so if it pleases ? It may
or may not be hampered by constitutional provi.
sions of its own, but it undoubtedly has the right tode-
cide for itself whether these things shall be done or not.
"' Now in regard to the construction of a canal
across the Isthmus of Panama, there is everything
done that can be done; every practical step has
been taken that is known to international law; all
conceivable modes have been adopted to establish,
with the consent of all the great nations of the earth,
the 'neutrality of that canal. That is, that when
constructed, and by whomsoever constructed, it is
to be kept neutral to all nations and to the trans.
portation of all the commerce of the world.

At a meeting of the stockholders of the Panams
Railroad Company, as No. 37 Wall Street, a few
days since, the annual report of the officers of the
company for 1880 show that the business of the road
is still increasing. The gross earnings for 1880 from
all sources amounted to 82,227,674 11, and the
total expense of every kind to $1,175,415 72 leaving
as net earnings $1,102,258 39. The number of
passengers carried during the year was 26,801,
against 23,729 in 1879. The number of tons of
rightt transported amounted to 157,432, against
161,743 tons in 1879. and 152,477 tons in 1878.
L'he Central American traffic, with the exception of
coffee, showed a satisfactory increase. The track
and road-bed are now in better condition than
ever before, and 11 miles of steel rails were laid
luring the year, completing the main line and the
idings chiefly used. The Treasurer's report shows
hat the assets of the company are $1,567,777 30,

Law Report.

Court of General Assize,
Easter Term 1881-Civil Sessions.
This was an action of trespass uare clausum
fregit, brought by Mr. Thomas Henry Parker against
Captain Orville Cooper. The Attorney General
and Mr. Reginald Gray were Counsel for the plain-
tiff; the Solicitor General and Mr. Ormond T.
Middleton were Counsel for the defendant. The
case was commenced on Monday the 25th ulto. and
.not concluded until Tuesday 3rd inst., so we have
been unable until now to publish a full report.
The defendant had pleaded (1) Not Guilty, (2)
That across the land in question there was a pub-
lic highway, on which the alleged trespasses had
been committed.
The Attorney General in opening the plaintiff's
case to the Jury said that he should confine his evi-
dence in the first instance to proving the trespass-
es, and should leave the defendant to establish the
plea of public highway if he were able, reserving
the plaintiff's evidence on that point until after-
The plaintiff was called, and at the conclusion
of his cross-examination, the Attorney General
stated that he proposed to reserve his re-examina-
tion until later in the case. The Solicitor General,
for the defendant, objected to this course being
pursued, and claimed that the plaintiff was bound
to go into the whole of his case in the first instance.
After some further argument the Chief Justice said
that the plaintiff would be allowed to call evidence
to rebut any right of way set up by the defendant.
Other witnesses were then called to prove the
trespasses, and the Solicitor General, in opening
the defendant's case to the Jury, stated that after
the evidence which had been given he should not
further pursue the defence on the plea of Not Guil-
ty, but should confine his evidence to the question
of the public highway, which the defendant al-
leged had existed across the plaintiff's land, almost
from time immemorial.
The land in question is a tract on the south side
of. Southampton Parish, a little west of the Rifle
Range at Warwick Camp near the old whale
house, and is crossed by the South Longitudinal
road. There is a cart road leading from the
South Longitudinal road through several lands to
Long'Bay and other places in the neighborhood.
This road crosses Mr. Parker's land, which he
purchased two years ago from the late Mr.
Thomas Beek Cooper. Persons were in the habit of
using this road to get seaweed from the neighbor-
ing bays. The defendant claimed that it was a
public highway, and that it had been so used for
a great number of years. The plaintiff denied
this and asserted that the road now in use was
not made until 1874, and that before that there
was no public cart road at or near the same place.
For the defendant twenty-one witnesses were
called, most of whom had been acquainted with the
locality for years, several of them for as many as
sixty years and upwards, all or nearly all of whom
asserted that the road had been used for horses and
carts during their respective memories, and that
their was no other cart road down to the bays but
the one in question.
The examination of the defendant's witnesses
was concluded on Wednesday, 27th ultimo, and on
Thursday morning the evidence for the plaintiff in
rebuttal of that for the defendant was commenced.
Twenty-five witnesses were examined on behalf of
the plaintiff relative to the right of way. All of them
had been familiar with the locus in quo for years, and
their evidence in effect was th4 until six or seven
years ago there was no cart-road at the place in
question, but only a by-road which was impassable
for carts, and up or down which they had never
seen a cart go, and that it was impossible for a horse
and cart to have travelled by that by-road.
There was also evidence that many persons in the
neighbourhood4 had paid to Mr. Cooper and to the
plaintiff toll for the use of the road and by asking
permission and otherwise had recognized the pro-
prietoz's title.
After the other witnesses for the defence had
been examined the plaintiff was recalled and re-
examined by the Attorney General. The Solicitor
General proposed to examine him further. The
Attorney General said that although the plaintiff
had already been cross-examined and therefore, as
he conceived could not be so again, he should not
object to a further examination on any new matter
which had been gone into in the re-examination,
. but considered that the plaintiff could not be inter-
rogated as to anything which he might have been
asked in his original cross-examination. The Soli-
citor General insisted on his right to have a
general cross-examination if he wished, and the
Chief Justice permitted it, taking a note of the
Attorney General's objection.
At the conclusion of the plaintiff's examination,
the Attorney General stated that he proposed to close
his case by having the evidence of the late Mr. Tho-
mas Beek Cooper, as taken on Commission read to
the jury. The evidence was then unsealed and
read by the Prothonotary.
The evidence of Mr. Cooper had been taken
before the Hon. E. Harvey on a Commission issued
by virtue of the sixth section of The Court Act, 1831,
in the presence of their parties and their Counsel on
23rd October 1880, and Mr. Cooper had since died.
There was evidence on both sides that the cart
road did not follow, throughout its entire length,
the track of the old by-road, but the witnesses dif-
fered as to where the deviation took place, or how
far the cart-road is out of the course pursued by
the by-road.
On Monday 2nd, instant, the Solicitor General
summed up the defendant's case contending that
the general user of the old road by the public as
proved by his witnesses for a great number of years
was evidence that the road had been originally
dedicated to the public by the owner of the fee, and
that, even assuming that the old road never had
been dedicated, when the new road was made, or
when as he contended the old road was repaired
the then owner of the soil, Mr. Thomas Beek
Cooper, had full knowledge of the fact and had
acquiesced in or at all events had not objected to
the deviation, and that Mr. Cooper's acts at that
time and his subsequent conduct were evidence of an
express intention to dedicate the road to the pub-

The Attorney General commenced his general re-
ply on the whole case on Monday afternoon and
concluded on Tuesday morning at 10-45 in a speech
lasting in all two hours and twenty minutes. He
argued that the evidence for the defendant did not
support the plea of a public highway and referred
in detail to the evidence of the defendant's witness-
es to show that it was not by any means conclusive
on that point, and that very few even of those
witnesses had attempted to assert continuous user
by the public. He contended that there could be
no public highway without a public terminus at
either end, and that in the present case there was
not the evidence that there had been any dedica -
tion to the public of the road over the W. D. land
on the one side and David Tucker's on the other.
He urged that the persons in the immediate
neighbourhood, who would be most interested in
knowing whether or not it was a public road,
had expressly recognized the rights of the pro-
prietors of the lands over which the road passed by
payment of toll, by obtaining permission and in
other ways, and contended that the acts and words
of Mr. Thomas Beek Cooper, so far from being
evidence of an intention to dedicate the road to the
public, shewed clearly that he never had any such
The summing up of the case to the Jury, by His
Honor the Chief Justice, lasted four hours and a

half. In effect he left it to the jury to say wheth-
er or not there had been a dedication of the road to
the public as a cart-road by the owner of the fee, as
evidenced either by long user or by recent acts telling
them they might infer a dedication from long use,
but that they must in any case come to the con3lu-
sion that there had been an intention to dedicate.
The jury retired at 3-18 p.m., and at 4-15 re-
turned into Court with a verdict for the plaintiff,
damages one shilling.
Thus ended a trial which occupied the Court
eight days out of the nine during which the Court
may sit for Civil business, and which has cost the
country not less than 200 to say nothing of the
expense to the parties.
Tuesday, 3rd May, 1881.
This was Inquiry under the Attachment Act 1874,
to ascertain the debt due from the defendants to
the plaintiff. The plaintiff proved that the amount
due him at the commencement of the action was
262 2/8 and the action being undefended the Jury
found a Verdict for that amount.
Mr. Reginald Gray was Counsel for the plaintiff.
This was also an Inquiry of Damages in an attach-
ment suit, the plaintiffs being Messrs. Wainwright,
Gorham & Co., and the defendant, George Cockburn
Robinson, formerly Steward of the Terror, who left
the Island some time last year without finding it
convenient to bid his creditors good bye." Mr.
Gorham proved a debt of 8 6/11 and the Jury
found for that amount.
The Solicitor General was Counsel for the plain-
This was a. action of debt on a Bond brought by
Mr. Aubrey James Richardson of St. George's
against Mr. Tudor Burchall Dickinson, of the same
town. The defendant pleaded Non eat factum, in
other words that the document in question was not
his deed.
Mr. E. C. Jackson was Counsel for the plaintiff,
the Attorney General for the defendant.
The case was commenced on Tuesday afternoon
and concluded on Wednesday evening at 8-30.
The case for the plaintiff was that he had been
applied to in August last by one Thomas Henry
Hinson, for an advance of goods on credit, that he
had agreed to supply him with 50 worth of goods
to be paid for on 1st January on his procuring a
satisfactory surety; that Hinson went away and
returned saying Mr. Burchall would act as surety;
that the plaintiff subsequently drew up the docu-
ment in question, which was not in strict legal
form, and so far as material, was as follows: We,
"Tudor B. Dickinson and Thomas H. Hinson
........ ,,do mutually agree, jointly and sever-
Sally, to bind ourselves and each and everyone, of
us......... ..... unto Aubrey James Richard-
son.....,........for the sum of fifty pounds
"in cash to be paid tohim..............on the
"first day of January, 1881." It contained no
According to the plaintiff's case this had been
taken by Hinson to the defendant, and read over
by him, and they had both gone to the plaintiff's
store where the Bond had been duly executed in
the presence of two witnesses.
On opening the defendant's case the Attorney
General submitted to the Court that the document
in question was not a Bond at all but only a
mutual agreement between Hinson and the defend-
ant, which could not be sued on by the plaintiff.
The Chief Justice intimated that he considered it
sufficient, but made a note of the objection.
The defendant's case was that he had never
agreed to become Hinson's surety; that he had
only been asked to sign the document as a witness,
and had only affixed his name to it in that capacity;
that it had been read over to him by the plaintiff
in the presence of the witnesses, and that it did not
then contain his name at all but only purported to
be an agreement between the plaintiff and Hinson
for the supply of goods on credit to be paid for on
1st January.
At the conclusion of the defendant's case the two
witnesses and Hinson were recalled and they all
positively denied that the document was read over
to the defendant before signature.
On the facts as alleged by the defendant it was
contended that his signature had been procured to
the Bond by fraud, to which the plaintiff, as well
as Hinson, had been a party, and that under those
circumstances the plaintiff could not recover in the
For the plaintiff it was urged on the Jury that
no fraud at all had been proved and that the plain-
tiff had done nothing to disentitle him to a verdict.
In summing up the case the Chief Justice told the
Jury that if they came to the conclusion that the
defendant had been imposed on by the plaintiffin the
matter of the Bond, or had signed it be-
lieving that he did so only as a witness he would
be entitled to a verdict, as in the former case the
fraud would disentitle the plaintiff to recover and
in the latter the delivery of the deed, which is an
essential part of its execution, would be imperfect.
But that if they considered that there was no fraud
as far as the plaintiff was concerned, and that the
defendant had executed the Bond knowing its con-
tents it would be their duty to find a verdict for the
plaintiff for 50.
The Jury found for the plaintiff, damages 50.
The Court then adjourned to Saturday next,
14 inst., at 11 a.m.

To the Editor of the Bermuda Royal Gazelta.
TURKS' ISLANDS, 21st April, 1881.
Dear Sir,-We last addressed you in this form
on the 22 ultimo, since which the demand has been
very moderate, only two small cargoes of Coarse
and seven cargoes of Fishery Salt have been shipp-
ed-six of the latter being supplied by us.
The'weather has been all that could be desired for
Salt making, and quite a large quantity, for this
season, has been added to the stocks of hard, dry
Salt on hand.
We were recently shown a copy of a Circular,
issued by one of our neighbours who claims to con-
troil the crop of this Colony to the extent of 1,000,-
000 bushels annually, which, according to the
average of the last 30 years would only leave 350,000
bushels for all the other shippers. Now, the
quantity shipped last year was about two-thirds
the average, and of this we shipped 350,000 bushels,
via., 190,000 bushels of coarse and 160,000 bushels

of fishery salt. But the best refutation of the above
preposterous claim is, that there are several other
shippers of Salt here who are independent of both
our neighbor and ourselves, whose aggregate quan-
tity amounts to over 300,000 bushels annually.
The yield at Salt Cay is about 500,000 bushels and,
of this, 75 per cent. had passed out of the control
of our neighbor, when he issued the Circular above
alluded to. He also claims to be the only party
here having storage for Salt, while the facts are
that we have storage of our own for Coarse and
fishery salt, at this and East Harbor for over 120,-
000 bushels, besides having the control of other
Salt stores, while the aggregate storage belonging
to other parties, not including our competitor,
would amount to nearly 100,000 bushels. The
above are facts which we felt compelled, in self
defence, to bring to your notice, but without com-

much short of our requirements, was a result not to
be lightly valued, and paved the way for further in-
come. Churchmen must still be called on to in-
creased earnestness and exertion in the work.
T. N. DILL, Esqr., M.C.P., briefly seconded the
S. BRowNLow GRAY, Esqr., in an address of much
earnestness, brought forward the next resolve. The
society's work was as yet too strictly confined with-
in narrow limits, its subscribers and members might
be largely increased and efforts should be put forth
directed to that end. The collection of money was
important, but concurrently there should exist
some bond of sympathy between Churchmen which
the Society was calculated to arouse. Bequests
and donations would no doubt continue to be made,
-to the generosity of its benefactors, so far the
Society should feel grateful-but the REGULAR RE-
widespread feeling among the people, whose inter-
est it was advisable to arouse in the cause of the
THoMAs S. REID, Esqr., in seconding, remarked
that what was required was an infusion of Mr.
Gray's enthusiastic Churchmanship among the
Parishioners of our various Parishes before whom
the objects of the Society had never been fully laid.
Meetings, imitating the example of the Wesleyans,
in every Parish, at an opportune period of the year,
would excite notice and create sympathy, especially
if held during the visit of our esteemed Bishop to
this portion of his Diocese. The Ghost of the
Clergy Act had something to do in calling this
Society into existence, and might still serve as a
useful lever in its favour. Still if that act should
be continued there ought to be no relaxation
of effort, as the present incomes of the bulk of our
Clergy were below what they ought to be. The
aim of the Society was truly conservative, to pre-
serve to all generations among Churchmen the pri-
vileges they enjoy, to avert a possibility which
might happen if public aid were withdrawn, of
Parish Churches becoming virtually proprietary
chape Is supported by a favoured few. Common
action, involved in the grand idea of Public Wor-
ship, should at all hazards be upheld.
REGINALD GRAY, Esqr., in bringing forward the
next resolution thought the Officers, and especially
the Secretary, entitled to the thanks of the Society.

That some more effective means than those now ex-
isting should be used to bring the Society into
public notice and favour. That subscriptions of
larger amounts than ten shillings should, if possi-
ble, be made, and that limit not absolutely accepted
as the standard.
The Hon. Jospaa H. HARVEY,:in seconding, hoped
that the subscriptions would continue to flow in
and in greater force.

LONDON, May 4.-The Grand Jury has found a
true bill against Herr Johann Most, publisher of
the Freiheit, Socialist journal, for inciting to mur-
der, with a rider that such publications are un-
English and ought to be vigorously dealt with. In
the Central Criminal Court to-day, A. M. Sullivan,
M.P., asked to have the case postponed, but Justice
Denman refused to do so and said that he would
try the case on Friday or Saturday next.
It is stated in the English papers that Sir Staf-
ford Northoote will be leader of the Conservative
party in the House of Commons, and that the Duke
of Richmond will for the present at least lead the
conservative party in the House of Lords.
