The Provost Marshal General having been di-
rected by His Excellency the Governor to request
the attendance at the Council Chamber of the
House of Assembly, the Members of that Honor-
rable House--headed by their, Speaker-, the Hon.
Samuel Saltus Inghanm-were soon-' in attendance,
when His Excellency delivered, in a clear and im-
pressive manner, the following
SPEECH:
Mr. President. and. Honorable Gentlemen of
the Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honor-
able HouSe of'Assembly.;
In calling.you. together to-day to inagu-
rate a new session of Parliament, I am happy
to be able to congratulate you upon the con-
tinued prosperity of the Colony.
The revenue raised during the twelve
months'end~inon the 31st March last amount-
ed to 3S4,4 f3/8--exceeding the revenue
realized during the preceding twelve months
by 2,026 5/8.
The expenditure incurred during the
twelve months ending on the 31st March
last-including a sum of 1000 devoted to
the redemption of Saving's Bank Debent-
urds-amounted only to 27,969 16/10.
On the 31at March last, there remain-
ed in the Treasury a balance of 8,716
7/7-against which however there were
outstanding Treasury liabilities amounting
to 7,628 11/11, leaving a clear-balance
of only 1,087 15/8; but of the total a-
mount set down for outstanding -liabilities
the Receiver G neral calculated that about
2,000 would not be called for during the
financial year 1881-2 and he considered
therefore that the balance remaining "in
the Treasury, available for use during the
year 1881-2 might be taken at 3,080 0/0
from which he suggested that a sum of
1,000 might, without any danger -to the
credit of the Colpny, be devoted to the
redemption of the, last remaining Saving's
Bank Debentures.
The Receiver General's views in this
matter have been adopted by the Council
and the last remaining Saving's Bank De-
bentures will the&ore, all have been paid
off before the 30t June next. The debt
of the Colony will thus have been reduced
by a sum of 2,000 during the current
financial year.
I trust that this prosperous condition
of the finances of the Colony may be
continued. The present season has opened
favorably, the weather has been fine, and
the crops are abundant and of good
quality, and though the prices realized by
some articles of. Colonial produce have
lately fallen somewhat- below the average,
I see no reason to anticipate that the va-
lue of the agricultural produce shipped
this year will fall below that of the produce
shipped last year;
Considerlabe progress has been made
during the past twelve months in bringing
the new Legislation with respect to Public
Education into effective operation. A
School Inspector, selected by the Secretary
of State and trained in the system of the
National Schools of England, has taken
up his duties here, and has for some
months been devoting his energies to the
improvement of our Educational system,
and especially to the improvement of the
system of teaching followed in our Schools.
The local school boards also throughout
the Islands have, I am happy to say with
Very few exceptions, taken a lively inter-
est in the progress of Education and have


used their utmost exertions to induce pa-
rents to send their children to School, and
the result of those efforts may be seen in
the great increase which has taken place


' in the number of children attending the
Board Schools..
I regret that it has been found mr-
praticable to make any progress in, the
improvement of the Public Gaol in Ham-
ilton, owing to the many legal difficulties
which have prevented the Colqnial Govern-
ment from obtaining possession of" the
necessary extent of land. I trust, how-
ever, that we have now very nearly sur-
mounted those difficulties and that, during
the coming financial year; we may be
able to make considerable progress in this
very desirable work.
I regret also to have once more to
point out to you the very grave incon-
veniences to which the Public continue to
be subjected, owing to your two Houses
not having been able hitherto to come to
an agreement as to the manner in which
additional clerical assistance should be
afforded in the Colonial Secretary's office,
to enable the Colonial Secretary to pro-
vide for the prompt and regular transac-
tion of public business, and especially to
provide for the speedy and accurate re-
cording of Wills and Deeds. I have
frequently pointed out to you how impor-
tant' it isto the Public Interests of the
Colony that the *business of the Colonial
Secretary's Office should be conducted in
an efficient manner. I am informed that
very grave inconveniences have already
resulted and that it is possible that very
serious losses may accrue to individuals
interested in Wills and Deeds -owing to
the inability of the Colonial Secretary to
nake adequate provision for recording
,hose documents, and I must therefore
earnestly press upon your attention how
desirable it is that your two Houses should
during the coming session, be able tc
agree in passing some practical measure
by which the clerical establishment of the
Colonial Secretary's office may' be placed
upon a satisfactory footing.
Mr. S-peaker and Gentlemen of the Honora-
ble House of Assembly ;
Detailed Estimates will be laid before
you shewing the probable receipts and the
proposed expenditure of the Colonial Gov-
ernment for the coming financial year
ending 30th June 1882. The revenue is
estimated to realise 29,024 6/0 being
about 1,400 below the amount realized
during the .twelve months ending 31st
-March last. The falling off thus anticipa-
ted in the revenue is due to the effect
likely to be produced upon our receipts
from import duties by the very considerable-
diminution which has taken place in the
strength of the military force maintained
here by the Imperial Government.
The proposed Expenditure you will
find set down at 27,997 11/10. If you
should authorise the whole of the Expend-
iture thus proposed there will still re-
main a surplus of Revenue over Expendi-
ture for the year of 1,026 14/2 available
to meet unforseen contingencies or, if no
such contingencies should arise available for
the reduction of'the Public Debt.
Mr. President and Honorable Gentlemen of
the Legislative Council;
.Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honor-
able House of Assembly;
I trust that during the Session that
is now beginning your proceedings will be
guided by a spirit of wisdom and concili-
ation and that with the blessing of GOD
they may conduce to the welfare of the
Colony and the happiness of the people
of these Islands.

The necessity of providing more shed accommo-
dation at Hamilton. must have been patent to any-
one who has walked along Front Street, from time
to time, during the present Crop Season. The Big
Shed on Friday night had piles of onion Boxes in
some sections, extended into the Road-way. Un-
der the Verandahs, during the week, there were
large stacks of boxes. The fine drr weather has
no doubt brought in rapid succession, unusually
large quantities of produce so. that every available
apace is at once occupied. The Corporation should
endeavour to provide as far as possible convenient
storage for immediate shipment. The extension of
the present big shed Eastward to the 2nd shed

The Stockholders of the Delaware and Hudson
Canal Company have reason to feel some satisfac-
tion that at last after long waiting they are to re-
ceive a dividend of 1l per cent on their stock. Of
course it is expected to maintain this rate quarterly.
The Delaware and Hudson Canal Company has
had its financial trials but the last full report of


its President presented evidence of its sound con-
dition. The Company starts upon the resumed
dividend paying basis with the accumulation of 6T
per cent profits on its Capital Stock for the past
year, at it command." The Coat Trade Journal,

And inward prayer and reverential awe,
To look our last upon the sacred ashes
Of her who loved the Master and his law.
Teach us to live 0 sweet and sainted dreamer
With God and man in favor and in grace
And win like thee from our Divine Redeemr
The joy ineffable of His glad embrace.

Scotch Church Discipline.-LoNDON, May 25.-
The General Assembly of the Scptch Free Church
have adopted by a large majority a resolution that,
considering the nature of certain writings of Prof.
Robertson Smith, in particular an article on the
Hebrew language and literature'in the "Encyclop-
madia Britannica," the Assembly feel constrained
to declare that they no longer consider it safe or
advantageous for the Church that Prof. Smith
should continue to teach in one of her colleges.
Prof. Smith's friends have made an ineffectual
appeal to the Assembly to give him a trial before
the Presbytery.
Complaints are not frequently made of the in-
creasing cosdiness of the ironclads added to the
English navy from year to year. From criticisms
lately printed in several Russian papers on the
Russian naval administration it appears, however,
that if men-of-w.cr are costly thinma n in Enalrani
they are far more costly in Russia. The Strana, for
instance, calculates that every ton of shipping built
for the Russian navy costs nearly 1,000 roubles;
while in England the average cost per ton is only
439 roubles. The Golos, again, points out that dur.


The Queen's Birthday.
On Tuesday last, the 24th May, being the day
fixed for keeping Her Majesty's Birthday, the
Royal Standard was hoisted at all the Signal Sta-
tions at 8 a.m. while the shipping in the harbours
were gaily decked with flags, and at the several Con-
sulates and private dwellings, national and other
flags were displayed. The day was beautifully
fine.
At Prospect the troops in Garrison, consisting of
Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers, and 86th Regi-
ment, were drawn up at 11-30 on the Cricket
Ground under the command of Colonel Adams, 86th
Regiment, and soon after the Honorable Colonel E.
C. Gordon, with his staff (Major-General Laffan,
K.C.M.G., not being able to attend from indisposi-
tion) rode on to the ground. Lady Laffan, Mrs.
Gordon and Mrs. Carpenter and many other ladies
and gentlemen being present. After inspecting
the ranks Colonel Gordon took his stand at the' sa-
luting post and the troops marched past. Line
was again formed, and at 12 o'clock a feu-de-joie
was fired, while the Band played God Save the
Queen," at the same time the guns at St. George's
and at Ireland Island fired a royal salute. Three
cheers for Her Majesty were then given; after
which the ceremony of trooping the colour was
gone through. That finished line was again form-
ed and advancing in Review Order it halted a few
yards from the saluting point and gave a General's
salute, after which the men were marched back to
their barracks and dismissed.
In the evening the usual dinner in honour of
Her Majesty's Birthday was given at Government
House. The following gentlemen received invita-
tions but owing to unavoidable circumstances some
ere unable to be present. J
WHis Honor the Chief Justice, Captain Barnardis-
ton, R.N., Senior Naval Officer, the Hon. Col. E.

The Queen's health was drunk in an enthusiastic
manner, while the splendid Band of the 86th Regi-
ment played the National Anthem.

4W A Special Meeting, pursuant to notice and
advertisement, of THE BERMUDA CHURCH SOCrETY,
was held in the Court House, Hamilton, on Friday
last, at noon. The Hon. John Harvey Darrell,
C.M.G., in the Chair, to consider the proposition
to alter the Annual Meeting from within 20 days
after Easter, to within 20 days after June 1st,
which after considerable discussion was rejected.
At a subsequent meeting of the Executive Com-
mittee, the Treasurer was instructed as to in-
vestment of fpnds on hand and called Debentures,
and the Revd. J. Lumley Lough was elected a
Vice President.

We understand that the Revd. Dr. Hollingsworth
takes his departure by the S. S. Orinoco during the
present week. The Reverend gentleman came
among us in November 1879 accompanied by his
family, chiefly on account of his wife's illness,
which terminated fatally but a few days after their
arrival, and created a sympathy which has brought
them into contact with all classes. Dr. Hollings-
worth occasionally assisted his Reverend Brethren,
and by the fervency and thoughtfulness of his
discourses enlisted the attention of the Congrega-
tions who had the privilege of hearing him. Last
year he considerately undertook the duties of the
Rector of Pagets and Warwick, and enabled the
Revd. J. Lumley Lough to enjoy that relaxation
from duty which his assidious attentions thereto
fully entitled him. During the six months absence
of the Vicar General and Commissary the Parochial
work 'of the united Parishes of Pagets and War-
wick was unusually great. Dr. Hollingsworth
gave his unremitting attention to thsduties of the
office he had undertaken; while he preached in all
its fulness salvation to the well, he administered
counsel and comfort to the sick and the dying, and
fulfilled the duties of his high calling in a spirit of
earnestness and devotion. On the happy return of
their esteemed Rector, the Parishioners with unani-
mity united in doing justice to their own feelings
and besought Dr. Hollingsworth's acceptance of a
handsome silver salver inscribed with a suitable in-
scription in an address which set forth how general,
and at the same time how spontaneous had been
the movement which had prompted the presenta-
tion.
The salver was a massive one, very handsomely
engraved 16 inches in diameter, and weighing 61
ounces, and ,the inscription noted that it was pre-
sented in grateful memorial of faithful and able
services rendered by Dr. Hollinsworth as officiating
Minister of Pagets and Warwick Parishes, during
the Rector's absence in 1880-81. We are informed
that all classes united in making this presentation
with a unanimity which is far from common.
We trust that Dr. Hollingsworth may find leisure
to again visit our Island, and to renew the ac-
quaintance which he has made during his sojourn
amongst us.

In memory of Miss E. J. W.
Weep Not."
God's Angel messenger unseen had entered
Touched the fair forehead with caressing hand,
And she in whom our precious love was centered
Beheld him beckon to the Silent Land !
Nor mourned she at the angel's visitation
While we with sudden awe and grief were dumb,
But crossed her hands with gentle resignation
And meekly murmured Blessed Lord I come."

LONDON, May 24.-In the House of Commons to-
day Mr. O'Donnell (Home Rule) member for Dun-
garvan, speaking in support of the resolution on
the arrest of Father Sheehy and Mr. Dillon, made
a bitter attack upon Mr. Forster, Chief Secretary
for Ireland. He said the arrest of Father Sheehy
excited even stronger feeling than if Archbishop
Croke bad been arrested.
Mr. Forster said he had hitherto refrained from
entering upon the particulars of Mr. Dillon's arrest
because he feared it might endanger the safety and
even the lives of particular individuals. He then
proceeded to quote from incendiary speeches of Mr.
Dillon and Father Sheehy.
Mr. Forster admitted that the Government- bad
proclaimed Dublin in order to b3 able to arrest Mr.
Dillon. They could not, he said, arrest people for
"Boycotting" where it only meant exclusive deal.
ing, but when it put people in personal danger they
had made arrests and would do so again. He
looked forward, he said, with some alarm at what
was going on, but hoped that by sending an over-
whelming force wherever resistance was expected
they would be able to maintain peace.
Mr. O'Sullivan (Home Rule) member for Limer-
ick county, moved an adjournment of the debate.

ing the last ten years Russia has spent 72,000,000t
roubles on the construction or in the purchase of
men-of-war, and that all she has obtained for this
sum are Peter the Great, the two Popoffkas (vessels
useless for service at sea), three frigates, eight clip-
pers, four imperial yachts, four schooners, nine gun.
boats, two sea-going torpedo boats, and 115 coast.
defence vessels and small craft. During the same
period, the Russian Golos continues, England has
spent about two-and-a-half times as much as Rus-
sia, but has obtained in return twenty-four iron-
clads, two frigates, thirty corvettes, fifty-two clip-
pers, fifteen gunboats, etc., or, in proportion to the
sums expended, about five times as much as Russia
bas obtained,

THE ISLAND OF CHIO, which has been so terribly
shaken by earthquake, lies in the Grecian Arehipe-
lago, off the Coast of Asia Minor. It is separated
from the main-land by the Strait of Chio, which is
four miles wide in its narrowest part. The area of
the island is about 400 square miles, and its present
population is about 50,000, most of whom are
Turks. Limestone ridges traverse Chio, giving it a
rocky and uneven surface and picturesque appear-
ance. There are a few small streams of water in
the valleys, but most of the irrigation is by means
of water from wells. Only a small part of the island is
arable. Gum mastic is the staple production,
among the other productions being silk, cotton, wool,
fruit, and oil. Considerable wine is also made on
the island. The chief city and capital is Chio, or
Kastro, situated near the middle of the East coast
and having 14.500 residents. The city is protected
by a castle, has a harbour and manufactories of
silk, velvet and cotton. In ancient times the chief
city was called Chios, and claimed to have been the
brtihplace of Homer. The history of the island runs
back centuries before Christ. In 494 B. C. it was
invaded and laid waste by the Persians. Chio be-
came a member of the Athenian League in 479 B. C.
and recovered its independence in 358 B. C.
Philip V. of Macedon took possession of the Island
in 201 B. C., and it afterward became subject to
Rome. Turks captured the chief city and massacred
the inhabitants early in the fourteenth century.
Then the Genoese gained possession in 1346 and
held it until 1566, when it again fell into the bands
of the Turks. With the exception of a short period
when it belonged to Venice, Chio has been under
Turkish rule up to the present time. The inhabitants
rose against the Turks during the Greek revolution
in 1822, but were soon put down and made to
suffer terribly for their action Within two months
23,000, persons, without regard to sex or age, were
put to the sword, 47,000 were sold into slavery, and
5,000 fled to escape death. As a result the Christ-
ian population of nearly t04,000 was reduced to
2,000. A Greek force commanded by Col. Fabvier
a Frenchman, attacked the Turkish garrison of Chio
in 1827; but were beaten and driven from the
island.

For the Royal Gazette.
ME. EDITOn.-In the Royal Gazette of the 12th
April one of your subscribers published the opinion
of the Bishop of Ely on the subject of Ritualistic
views of the Clergy in England, taken from the
New York Churchman.
May I ask the favor of you to publish the follow-
ing that appears in that paper of 30th April, un-
der the head, of News from England ? It will be re-
membered by its readers in this Colony that a short
time since a Memorial was presented to the Arch-
Bishop of Canterbury on this subject. On the 3rd
of April a counter-memorial was presented to him,
accompanied by this letter signed by upwards of
22,000 laymen, many of whom are representative
men. Yours respectively,
ANOTHER SUBSCRIBER-
May 17th, 1881.
The Counter-Memorial presented to the Arch-Bishop
of Canterbury.
On Saturday, April 3rd, the counter-memorial
against the toleration of divergent ritual, though
not opposed "to such reasonable latitude of opinion
and practice as is not inconsistent with the teach-
ing of the formularies, articles, and homilies, of the
Church of England was forwarded to the Arch-
Bishop of Canterbury, with the following letter:
"We have the honor to present to your grace
herewith a memorial signed by upward of 22,000
laymen, among whom are men of influence and
position in the country, in opposition to the
claim recently made for the recognized toleration
of wide diversities of ceremonial. We advised
your grace of the preparation of the memorial of
the 9th ult. Your grace will understand that
the object of its promoters has been to obtain rep-
resentative names rather than numbers; and though
they have had the kind assistance of zealous
friends in scattered localities, the means adopted
to make the memorial known in the provinces have
been but desultory; otherwise the signatures would
have been greatly multiplied. The memorial is
submitted to your grace as evidence of a feeling
which pervades all classes of the community.
"That feeling is one of profound uneasiness, lest,
under the plea for toleration and charitable conces-
sions to earnest but mistaken men, ceremonial
practices and doctrines may obtain recognition
which are alien to the spirit of the Prayer Book,
and have been in former days deliberately condem-
ned by the Church. We desire to call the atten.
tion of your grace to the fact that the feeling of
deep dissatisfaction with the present aspect of
affairs is wide spread, and that while the toleration
of divergent ritual may, for a time, gratify a sec-
tion of the people, it seems certain to alienate the
affection of the masses, and to strengthen the
hands of those who seek to destroy the established
institutions of the country."

To the Editor Royal Gazette.
SIa.-In your issue of May 10th, you say, "We
have been favoured with a copy of a letter from a


mercantile Firm of the first respectability in New
York to a correspondent in these Islands, suggest.
ing a means of correcting the evil influences which
at present prevail in the Washington Market in
that city, in reference to the sale of produce sent
there from Bermuda." I quote from the said let-
ter, as published as follows ; Our market is in a
weak state owing to Bermuda goods being in so
many hands who have no trade for same, and are
obliged to cut under in prices to make the sale.
It matters not at what price goods are started at,
they are sure to go 12 to 25 cents per box less, and
run after customers and offer them at a less price."
Planters and others interested in Bermuda would
be glad to be informed how it is that the smaller
receivers of Bermuda Produce in New York are en-
abled to render sales of from 15 cents to 25 cents
per box more for onions and 25 cents per box more
for tomatoes than the large receivers rendered.
I sent on 15th April, per S. S. Flamborough,"
a portion of the same lot of onions and tomatoes to
a large receiver, and a portion to a small receiver,
in New York. The goods were all in the same con.
edition and packed alike. The large receiver re-
turned sales, Onionsal-85 per box, Tomatoes 75o per
box. The small receiver returned sales, Onions
$2, Tomatoes $1. I find it is almost in every in.
stance the case as above.
Will the Mercantile Firm of the "first respects.
ability" explain ? W. A.
May 14, 1881.


The Atlantics.
A Dramatic wave of the Atlanties has once mor-
swept over Somerset, carrying with it contribute
tions from the tributary channels of thought, feel-
ing, patronage and appreciation from the adjacent
islands.
In other words the enterprising company of Na-
tive Amateurs, styling themselves by the above
name, have kept their promise (which neither Dra-
matists nor some others always do), and have given
their neighbors two more evening entertainments
under the patronage of the Captain Superintendent
and principal Officers of Her Majesty's Naval Es-
tablishments.
The Prologue, delivered by W. H. Trott, Jr.
fairly sustained the merit of the composer, which
induced us last year to speak of it as a racy little
production ; there was in this one, too, a felicitous
adaptation of rhyme to the occasion, and an easy
descriptive flow of ideas indicative of a genius
needing naught but culture, to ensure success on a
larger platform than that of the Mason's Lodge at
Somerset.
We cannot afford so much space in our columns
this time as we indulged the Company with on
their debut, and, therefore, shall not review their
pieces in detail.
There is no doubt about this, viz., that their sing-
ing is the part of their programme which gives
uniform satisfaction, if the comic singing is more
appreciated by some; the chorus singing is most
appreciated by others-Miss F. Wingood literally
coming to the front in her own pathetic style in
dulcet strains. Why the Choir was not encored in
"Maggie" or Moonlight" we do not understand
-personally we were specially "fetched" by the
"Silver Moonlight Winds," a curious composition
physically speaking, but as a musical one very
pretty.
Gifted Gibbs shone out in his true colours, plenty
of confidence, a fine bass voice and comical as ever,
only we don't think him so blind or quite so inno-
cent of "looking" as he'd have us believe. Miss J.
Symons, his sister, certainly shone out as the ac-
tress of the evening as Elvira, displaying a wonder-
ful power of rating, as did also widow Bedott and
the PRECIOUS WIrE." Let us hope that this family
forte on the stage shines all the more from its con-
trast to the home demeanor.
We regretted to notice the absence of one of their
stars-we think it was one named Stowe who acted
so splendidly as Judge last year. This was a mis-
take. The Company should put on all the talent they
possess every time-and there was a great lack of
talent and taste in the last piece-but while it was
painfully silly to many, it amused those for whom
it was intended, and the end was attained.
In conclusion we would say-Atlantics take
courage! Your cause is a good one, your house
was filled both nights, you have ability amongst
you-go on, persevere and prosper, but get out some
good Screaming Farces" and teach every actor to
act the most subordinate of parts as though he
felt the success of the piece depended (say very
much) on himself. A guard, a flunkey, or a mes-
senger, will sometimes bring down the house" by
his REALITY! One word more:-When you want
an Irishman, GETONE.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
Ireland Island, 21st May, 1881.
Dear Mr. EDITon.-Having observed in your
valuable paper of the 17th May, 1881, a casual re-
mark that the Floating Dock was removed and
placed in her new position for careening on Satur-
day last, and safely secured. Presuming thereby
none of your valuable staff were present to witness
the removal or, the heeling over of the Dock on
Thursday last, 19th May, so as to bring the keel
plate out of water sufficiently to make good any
defects that may have taken place since last ca-
reened, and!coatedwith Dr. Sims'protective compo.
sitions, &c., being present on both occasions, no
doubt a short account of the work to be done in
moving this gigantic structure would be interest-
ing to many of the subscribers, if space can be
spared in any of the editions of the Royal Gazette.
The iron girder Bridges, mooring the Dock,
being the first to be considered, weigh each about
47 tons, and have to be so nicely adjusted on floating
bodies at the Dock end connections, that the coup-
ling staples may be removed without being dam-
aged, the Dock having to be adjusted for so doing
to 1-82 of an inch; the weight or displacement of
the structure at that particular moment being
about 24,000 tons. When we take into considera-
tion the momentum of such a weight if once set in
motion, which would, if not governed by hausers,
&c., judiciously placed, carry everything before it
and perchance render one of the triumphs of man
useless for a time ; great must be the anxiety of
of those officers upon whom devolve the duty, and
the responsibility of this work, be this as it may,
the stupendous structure was successfully removed
and secured, the only mishap being the breaking of
a steel hawser, which was by the zeal and energy
of the workmen, soon replaced, and by dusk the
Dock was securely moored by 18. of the strongest
chain cables used in thd service, each of them being
secured to two anchors placed in judiciously chos-
en ground on shore and in Grassey Bay; the duty
of which has been carried out by the Master attend-
ant Ed. Scobell Clapp, Esq., and his staff. On
Thursday last the Dock was successfully heeled
over so as to bring the keel about 2' 5" out of the
water, not the slightest hitch occurring. The effi-
cient working of the Dock is controlled by 112
valves which allows the water to pass from one
part to another at the discretion of the officer re-
presenting the Admiralty Construotor's Depart.
mant, G. F. Newton, Esq., upon whom devolves the
duty and responsibility of careening, repairing and
working this marvellous structure. The deck of
the Dock in its present position on the Starboard
side is only about 9 feet vertically from the water ;
on the port side about 100 ft., the area of the plat-
ing now presented to the S.E., is about 43,000
square feet. The work of repairing, cleaning and
painting of the hull, &c., is zealously being pro-
ceeded with by the few Mechanics who have the
honbr to serve under the able directions of the Cap-
tain-in-Charge, and Officer in charge of Dock.
HYDROLOGY.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.


DEAu SIR,--Although I may not be a practical na-
vigator, and may have my eye dimmed by coal dust,
I think all men of nautical experience, and all those
who will shortly enjoy the pure air usually found
in our legislative halls, will see that an anchorage,
which like Castle Harbour, can only be entered un-
der the most favourable circumstances, and the im-
rovement of which would be a doubtful and cost-
y experiment, cannot be so good as one that can,
by the aid of steam, be used by vessels of any size
and at any state of the wind or tide.
The coal hulk was rotten, and had made the
acquaintance of most of the numerous shoals and
sand banks of St. George's Harbour, before being
purchased by the Coal Company.
I do not believe the statement of the Quebec S.
S. Company, that they have leased a New York
pier expressly for our use, or that the Orinoco"
was built for our trade any more than the Ber-
muda," but having committed themselves it would
be well to keep them to the mark, and the shallow-
ness of the Stag Channel would be the strongest
argument in favour of her being removed to some
other route.
One of the New York agents remarked to me, that
it would be a great shame for the Oronico to be
obliged to run here during the summer months,
meaning I suppose that the Flamborough "or
any other Scow would do to carry Bermudians
and Kerosene oil, while the Orinoco would be


reserved for Americans and Onions.
The subject of Harbour improvement has now
been pretty well exhausted. I have endeavoured
to look at the merits and demerits of the three har-
bours in dispute, not only from my own point of
view, but also from that of Castle Harbour,'"
and am satisfied that a better Harbour is needed,
and that for the general good, in justice to the
property holders in the towns, and as a matter
of true economy the Stag Channel should be
deepened, thus providing all that is required, a
good and commodious harbour, easy of access
to ships of any size."
I have to thank Castle Harbour" for the

ST. PETERSBURG, May 18.-Gen. Ignatieff, thes
the successor of Gen. Melikoff, has addressed a cir-
cular, dated to-day, to the Governors of the pro-
vinces, explaining the principles of the Imperia
manifesto, and announcing the views of the Gov-1
ernment on the internal condition of the country.
It refers to the dark sides of the present state of
society, the irreligious education of the youth, the
inactivity of the authorities, the indifference of
many holders of public offices to the General wel-
fare, and their avaricious practices at the expense
of the public property. Herein, it says, is to be
found the explanation of the painful fact that the
great reforms introduced by the last Government
did not yield the full benefit the deceased Emperor
had a right to expect. None but an autocrat
strong in the attachment and unbounded love of a
great people can, even with the enlightened cooper.
ation of the best sons of Fatherland, successfully
remove the great evil from which Russia is suffering.
The first task to be accomplished is the extirpation
of the spirit of rebellion which society must count-
eract of its own initiative. The persecution of the
Jews in the Ukraine shows how completely the
people yield to the influence of evil-disposed per-
sons, and unsuspectingly serve their rebellions
plans. The second task is to strenghten faith and
morals. The Government will take especial care
to introduce order and justice into the institu-
tions created by the late Czar. If there be cordial
cooperation between society and the Government
the present difficulty will soon disappear. The no.
ability, who always listen to the voice of truth and
honor will substantially contribute to that result.
The nobility and all other classes must have cer-
tainty that all their rights will remain untouched.
The peasantry may be sure that the Government
will not only maintain all the rights accorded to
them, but that it will relieve the people as much
as possible of the burden of taxation In order to
Improve their material condition.
