THE BOERS DEFIANT.
From the Army and Navy Gazette, June 11.
A valued correspondent writes to nus from Maritz.
burg, on the 2nd ultimo:-" The General feeling
amongst the troops, and in this colony is that unless
the Boers have a beating, there is sure to be fron-
ble before lone', for they are so defiant and high-
handed towards their loyal brethren. They have
such good grounds, too, for being-so, and will get
so much of what they want. that, for myself, 1 can-
not believe they will be so badly advised as to risk
defeat, and subsequently getting less in the shape
of concessions from our Govornient. Amongst them
there are, of course, some foot, who from their late
nscoeeses imagine they could-lick the world; but
then, they are the fools, and there are to many with
experience to let them have their way. That they
will in the future be uncomfortable neighbors
for this colony, there is 1Uttl1 doubt. They
never have been friends, except when making
money oat of one another in trade ; bhut henceforth
, the enmity, I take it, will not be disguised. At
present, our force, the head-quarters of which is at
Newcastle, is maintained ready lop an advance.
A large reserve of supplies is ateded there, and
more here, and on the line of communication, ready
to push forward. The stations gained ift the
Transvaal have been filled up with supplies equal
to many months' consumption for their garrisons.
In fact all that stood out still had a very consideta-
ble stock in hand when the armistice began, except
Potohefstroom. The very few days' liberty before
the garrisons were besieged were utilised tO the
full by the Commissariat In sweeping in everything
that could be procured from the stores in the towns
and farms in the neighborhood, and the result
shows that they were able, not only to feed the
garrisons, but also the inhabitans who remained'
Sir T. D. Baker, K.C.B., is now the active and in-
telligent General of Communications and Base,
There is, however, little real work to be done in
that capacity this side of Newcastle. If we got to
the other side, and into the Transvaal, and the
communications had to be protected, it would be
different. As it is, the line, though long, is through"
our own country, in which case the chief work of
communications and base resolves Itself Into the
question of supply a*g4 transport. Fortunately for
the Service, there are still some. of the old Commis-
sarlat officers, with years of experience in supply
work, accounts, and the varied duties during war
of this universal providing branch. Deputy-Com-
missary-General Brownrigg was on the spot at first
almost single-handed, and without any General of
Communications-probably the easier for that very
reason. The expedition o, hurriedly organised by
Sir G. Colley was got to thle.fri-nt, supplies being
procureitefe41y and from vutaide markets. Trans.
port trains were so economically purchased and
equipped for the !force, anad the most important
question of the transport of supplies to the front,
from this base to Newcastle, was so expeditiously
arranged to be carried out by contract, and all, in
fact, was so well done that one df the latest tele-
grams from Sir G. Colley was from Mount Prospect
to Deputy-Commissary-General Brownrigg, thank-
ing him for the very successful manner in which
he had carried out his wishes. The concentration
of supplies for the increased force has been equally
satisfactorily conducted, and with great expedition,
the necessary transport to complete the regiments
for thefield being reads in anticipation of their
arrival, as well as everything else for their require-
ments. The railway from Durban here, which is a
facility not completed during the Zulu War, is a
Natal Government undertaking, and the Commis-
earlat bring up all supplies by it, instead of by the
old way by road. It is of the greatest value, and
Is, of course, a great saving in the cost of transport
of both troops and stores. That a General of Com.
munications is absolutely necessary in the event of
an advance, there is no question, and that Sir
Thomas Baker, should opportunity offer, will make
an efficient one there can be equally little doubt,
though I imagine his inclination would prefer the
front, as a leader in action, in which capacity he
shone so recently in India. Of course, if the result
of the Commission is peace, the General of Com-
munications Will have his hands full, withdrawing
the force now concentrated in front, but no diffi-
culty need be anticipated in this. It will only
depend upon the future distribution of the force
in this. command, and the arrival of troopers to
convey the regiments that are to go home or else.
where. The work of disembarkation at Point
Durban has been conducted most successfully.
Previous experience has enabled the several duties
of the Naval and Military authorities to be clearly
defined, and the result has been thorough harmony.
Now, as during the Zulu War, the duties of Mill.
tary landing.officfare performed by a Commis-
ariat officer. Tfhe ecess proves that it is advisa.
ble to have one who is accustomed to accounts for
this work. Bills of landing have been cleared in a
manner most satisfactory to the shipowners, and
tbe goods distributed equally smoothly to the dif-
ferent branches of the Service to which they were
onlsigned. A Staff officer knowing nothing, and
oaringprobably little for accounts, could n'ot be
expected to do this duty so wel'."

BIELA's COMET has been an object of fear to
many on account of the nearness with which it
has approached, not the earth, but a point of the
earth's path; it was first discovered by M. Biela
an Austrian officer, 28 Feb." 1826. It is one of the
third comets whose re-appearance was predicted,
its revolution being performed in 6 years and 38
weeks. Its second appearance was in 1832, when
the time of its perihelion passage was 27 Nov.; its
third was in 1839; its fourth in 1845; and its fifth
in 1852 ; it has since vanished.
1)oNATi' COMET, so called from its having been
first observed by Dr. Donati, of Florence, 2 June,
1858, being then calculated to be 228,000,000 miles
from our earth. It was very brilliant in England
in the end of September and October following,
when the tail was said to be 40,000,000 miles lonw.
On the 10th of October it was nearest to the earth ;
On the 18th it was near coming into'collision with
Venus. Opinions varied as to this comet's bril-
liancy compared with that of 1811.
THE GREAT COMET of 1861 was first seen by Mr.
Tebbutt at Sydney, in Australia, 13th May; by
M. Goldschmidt and others in France and England
on 29, 30 June. The nucleus was about 400 miles
in diameter, with a long bush-like tail, travelling
at the rate of ten millions of miles in 24 hours. On
30th June it was suggested that we were in the
tail-there being "a phosphorescent auroral glare."
A tailless comet was discovered in the constel-
lation Cassiopceia, by M. Seeling, at Athens, on 2
July, and by M. Tempel, at Marseilles, 2 and 3
A comet detected at Harvard by Mr. Tuttle, 18
July, and by Rosa, at Rome, on 25 July, 1862. It
was visible by the naked eye in August and Sep.
Six telescopic comets were observed in 1863, and
several in 1864.
A fine comet appeared in the southern hemis-
phere, and was visible in South America and Aus-
tralia, in Jan.-Feb, 1865.
M. Babinet considered that comets had so little
density that the earth might pass through the tail
of one without our being aware of it, 4 May, 1857.
Schiaparelli, of Milan, discovered that the Aug.
ust meteors move round the sun in an orbit almost
identical with the second comet of 1862-1866.
One discovered at Carlsruhe by Dr. Winnecke,
13th June, 1868.
TERRIBLE TALES OF THE SEA.
REcoRDs OF SOME OF THE GREAT DISASTERS OF
The wreck of the Victoria at London, Ont., which
has resulted in the loss of 200 lives, will recall sim-
ilar disasters in recent years. Last year was re-
markable for the destruction of steamships, no less
than 147 having been lost. Three of these disasters
were of peculiar interest, and excited unusual hor-
ror on account of the number of persons who were
either downed or burned-the collision between
the Narragansett and Stoningtona in Long Island
Sound, the burning of the Seawanak! in East River
and the foundering off the Florida coast of thePCity
of Vera Cruz. The Narragansett, of the Providence
Line, was run into on the night of June 11, by the
Stoninqton, of the same Line, off Cornfield Point.
The Narragansett caught fire and sunk. The scenes
of the night were terrible. Of the 850 passengers
who were on board, about fifty were lost. Close on
the heels of this disaster came the burning of the
Seawanaka, by which about forty lives were lost.
The boat ran between New York and summer re-
sorts on the north shore of Long Island. On the
afternoon of June 28,while the Seawanaka wasabreast
of Blackwell's Island, fire broke out. Through the
heroism of Captain Smith, who though badly burn-
ed, remained at the wheel, the boat was beached,
where she burned to the water's edge. The recol-
lection of the awful scenes of that afternoon, as the
passengers, with whom the boat was well filled, en-
deavoured to save themselves from death by fire
and water, is still fresh. The foundering at sea on
August 28, of the City of Vera Cruz, as she was on
her way from New York to Havanna, caused a
great deal of excitement, which was heightened by
the two disasters which had preceded it. Thirty-
four lives were lost. Two other accidents which
occurred last year resulted in heavy loss of life-the
sinking of the French steamer Oncle Joseph, which
met in collision the steamer Oritigua, off Spezzia,
on November 24,250 persons being drowned; and
the foundering seventy miles from Bombay of the
British steamer Vingorla, 190 persons losing their
lives. One of the most dreadful calamities of re-
cent years was the blowing up of the boilers of the
Staten Island ferry boat Westfield, on Sunday, July
31, 1871, just as she was about to leave the slip at
the foot of Whitehall Street. There were from 200
to 250 passengers on board at thetime, about eighty
of whom lost their lives, and over one hundred of
whom were more or less injured by the explosionm
The forward half of the boat, where most of the pas-
sengers were seated, was blown to fragments. On
the night of August 29, in the 11Uowing summer, a
schooner ran into the propelleitwhtie, of the provid-
ence, Line and sunk her. The Metis had t104 pas
sengeis and a crew. of 44 men, some of whom
floated ashore at Watch Hill, on the upper deck of
the propeller. Fifty-three persons lost their lives
by the accident. In September, 1878, an excur.
sion steamer the Princess Alice, was run dawn ijl
the Thames, and about 600 lives were lost. In
November of the same year, the Hamburg-Ameri-
can steamer Pomrserania came into. cllision with a
barque and went.down off Folkestone. Sixty-five
lives were lost. On May 31, 1878, the German
iron-clad Grosser Rurfurst, while steaming in the
British channel, came into collision with the Koniq
Wilhelm, of the same squadron and went down al-
most Immediately. Over 300 lives were lost in
this disaster. One of the strangest accidents of
modern times occurred off the Isle of White on
March 24, 1878. In the afternoon, the British
training ship Eurydice, an old wooden sailing ves-
sel, was seen.by the people on shore moving along
under fault sail. Soon a driving snow storm set in
and when the clouds cleared away the Eurydice was
not in sight. She had been capsized, and of the
311 persons on board only two were saved., Nearly
100 lives were lost by the wreck of the steamer
Metropolis on Currltuck Beach, N. C., in January
1878. The United States ship Huron ran ashore
near Oregon Inlet, N. C., on November 24, 1877,
in a storm, and was completely wrecked. Ninety-
six officers and men were lost. Within Ithe last 40
years the disasters and mysteries of the sea have
been many. Among these are to be remembered
the great loss of life on the Ville du Havre, the
wreck of the Northfleet with 325 persons on board,
the loss of the Arctic with 300 passengers, the mys-
tery of City of Boston by which 480 persons perish-
ed, the burning of the Austria with 450 v1ltims, the
stranding of the Panama with 400 deaths, the dea-

or shall, on conviction before any Justice of
the Peace, forfeit and pay any sum'not exceed-
ing ten shillings as to the Justice sliall seem
i 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,

ceeding one pound as to the Justice shallseemn

ables, in open packages, or bags, forconsump-
tion in these Islands.
II. If any person shall purchase or ship, or
cause to be shipped, any Potatoes, .Onions,

ages as are usually used for' the shipment of

our, interest to manufacture only PURE and WHOLs.
