ing for a remission of the duty paid by them on
Coal imported, for reasons stated.
The Resolve for paying the sum of 60 for the

And,
The Bill entitled An Act relating to certain
money in the Public Treasury arising from the sale
of Glebe'Land in Pembroke Parish," were several-
ly read the third time and passed, and ordered
to be laid before His Honor the Acting Governor
by the Hon. R. E. Webster.l
The following Message from His Excellency the
Governor was delivered by the Hon. James
Tucker:-
(No. 19.)
-R. M. LAFFAN,
Major-General,
Governor and Commander-in- Chief.
With reference to the Governor's Message No. 9,
to the Honorable the Legislative Council, dated 3rd
June, 1881, recommending" that the Legislature
should make provision for the appointment of an
additional attendant for the Lighthouse at Mount
Hill on St. David's Island-as the Light House
Commissioners considered that the appointment
of an additional attendant was necessary to ensure
the proper working of the Light. The Governor
has the honor to inform the Honorable the Legis-
lative Council that, with a view to satisfying him-
self as to whether the need of an additional attend-
ant at this Light House might be due in any way
to any defect in the mechanism or in the construc-
tion of the Lights, he requested Captain Barnard-
iston, R.N., in charge of Her Majesty's Dockyard,
to be good enough to authorize Mr. Lloyd, the Su-
perintending Engineer of the Dockyard, to examine
the Machinery and Lights and report thereon.
Mr. Lloyd found some trifling defects in the
machinery arising chiefly from the cupped leathers
attached to the piston having become too weak
from loss of elasticity due to the effect of climate,
the weakness causing a leakage in the piston
cylinder which rendered it necessary to wind up
the machinery every 45 minutes, but Mr. Lloyd
added that from the general appearance of the
Lamps and Machinery he was of opinion that they
had received every care and attention on the part
of the attendants.
On receiving this information from Mr. Lloyd
the Governor communicated with the Light House
Commissioners and he is informed by them that I
they have sent to England to request Messrs.
Chance, Brothers and Co., who supplied the Ma-
chinery and the Lamps to be good enough to send
out a new pinion for winding up the Lamp and
some new cupped leathers, and the Commissioners
add that they expect the articles to arrive here
some time in December next.
The Governor however has no hesitation in stat-
ing his opinion that the need of a third attendant
at the St. David's Light House is not due to any
defect in the'working of the machinery but that it
arises simply from the impossibility of ensuring
with only two attendants that constant and vigilant
attention to the working of the Light which is
absolutely necessary to ensure its efficiency.
The Governor has the honor to remind the Hon-
orable the Legislative Council that this Colony
raised a Revenue of 1017 11/8 from Light Dues on
Shipping during the twelve months ending 31st
March last and that during the same twelve months
the expenditure of the Colony for salaries, supplies
and maintenance of buildings did not exceed 700.
The Governor is of opinion that it would be a
judicious measure to devote some of the surplus
revenue thus raised to providing for the constant
and perfect working of the Light without which
the value of the new Light House would be very
much impaired.

poration undertaking to provide an Office if that
were done. The Honorable Hcuse in that year
agreed to place a sum of 100 on the Estimates
3 for the purpose of extending the Telegraph line
, from the Royal Engineer Office into the Town, and
* the Commanding Royal Engine3r subsequently ob-
tained the sanction of the War Department for the
execution of this work.
? The Acting Governor desires to hing the fore-
going facts to the notice of the Honourable House
of Assembly in order that, if the Legislature should
see fit to make provision for this service, the sum
of 109 may be placed at the disposal of the Ex-
ecutive for the above named purpose.

We understand that about- one hundred civilians
are being employed on the Government works in

of Captain Harris and Lieut. Stewart, went from
Prospect to Warwick on Saturday last to go

yet detached from the vine and with its weight un-

THE ROYAL IRISH RIFLES MINSTREL
TROUPE."
At the Theatre Royal, Prospect, on Friday and
Saturday July 29th and 30th, most successful open-
ing entertainments were given by the Royal Irish
Rifles "Minstrel Troupe." The programme was
divided into two parts-the first part being entire-
ly voeal-the second part of the entertainment con-
sisted of a short sketch, "The Comedy of Errors, "
comi- songs, step dances, etc.
We understand that the Troupe is as yet quite
in its infancy, but judging from the highly credit-
able performances of last month, it may be safely
augured that success will crown its future efforts.
-Lance Corpl. Roots, Stage manager, was, we re-
gret to learn, suddenly taken ill before the first
performance, and thus the Troupe lost the very
able services of one of its earliest and most ener-
getic promoters. Drum Major Cheeseman, the
"Lion Comique" of the Corps, gave us a very hap-
py rendering of some of his best comic songs : as
usual, he brought down the house-which was
again and again convulsed with laughter at each
successive hit.

The New Pinafore Last Night.
A very large audience attended the Mechanics'
Hall last night to witness Mr. Wallack's new Com-
pany of Amateurs in Pinafore. The reducing the
prices of admission and the Brittania Steamer be-
ing chartered from St. Georges tended greatly to
swell the numbers who visited the performance.
We must commence our notice with again compli-
menting Mr. and Mrs. Wallack on their persever-
ance in getting together such accomplished musi-
cal 'performers-we believe that one and all are
musicians, for they sing most accurately and their
voices are wonderfully powerful and melodious.
Ralph Rackstraw is as good as the general run of
professional operatic performers, with a much better
voice, a fine figure and pleasing manners, all his
songs, &c., were gems in their way and heartily
received.-The Admiral has an extraordinary
powerful bass-which he manages well.-The Cap-
tain was very satisfactory indeed and one more
playing of the part will raise him to the perfect
level of his Brother performers. The Boatswain
gave good effect to his two Naval songs. We re-
cognise Hebe as the one in the former Company,
much improved by practice and admirably and at-
tractively costumed. The Minute little sailor and
chorus were also our acquaintances of the other
Company of the Tripologue, we need only say
they excelled themselves. Fannie was in splendid
voice, Watty as gushing as ever and Rider the life
of the piece. If the Amateurs did lack a little in
the acting it was amply made up in the singing,
which was worth double the admission to hear.
We understand last night was the farewell of the
Wallacks, who have resided with us for five months.
There is not an amusement loving person or an
admirer of true art but will regret their departure,
and we, as well as the community at largo, join in
hearty wishes for their future welfare. We believe
this Pinafore will be represented for one night at
Ireland Isle prior to the final termination of this
first class performance.

PEMBROKE GRAMMAR SCHOOL AQUATIC SPORTS.-
As the notes of time, &c., taken of these races,
which came off in Hamilton Harbour on the 29th


ly defeated at Karez. All his baggage and eighteen
guns taken. The Akhelat regiment and his Canda-
har Horse deserted to Ayoob Khan. The Ameer's
general fled toward Cabul.
In the House of Commons, to-night, Mr. Gladstone
read a telegram confirming the report of the defeat
of the Ameer.
The Telegraph says: "The defeat of the Ameer of
Afghanistan implies the complete overthrow of the
only remaining representative of British influence
in Afghanistan."
LONDON, July 29.-In the House of Commons
this afternoon, Sir Wm Harcourt Home Secretary,
said precautions would be taken against the Brad-
laugh meeting, to protest against the exclusion of
that agitator from the House of Commons, interfere.
ing with traffic, or causing a disturbance in the Pal-
ace yard. The meeting is to be held in Trafalgar
Square on next Tuesday evening.
M. Gambetta, president of the Chamber of Depu-
ties, to day read a decree closing the session of the
Chamber.
LONDON, July 29.-rhe Daily News says there
can bc little doubt that Candahar is Ayoob Khan's
immediate destination, and that he is master of the
surrounding country. The Ameer's defeat cannot
effect British Policy as the Ameer was clearly in-
formed that on the departure of the British from
Candahar he must rely on his own resources.


SERIOUS ACCIDENT.-We regret to learn that at
about half past ten o'clock on Saturday morning
last, as Mr. John Trott, foreman of Mr. Lewis Pugh's
Steam Saw-Mill, St. George's, was in the act of
sawing a short piece of crooked cedar wood, and
while guiding it, his left arm-by some unaccount-
able means, which he cannot explain-came in con-
tact with the saw, lacerating it severely above the
wrist round th'e entire circle. Fortunately it was
one of the small saws that was in operation at the time
or the accident may have been more serious. The
wound, which bled most profusely, was dressed by
Dr. Butterfield, and up to the present time the pa-
tient is progressing most favorably. No impor-
tant artery or muscle is injured.-Much sympathy
is expressed for the sufferer, who is respected in the
community for his obliging disposition.

BOY VERSUS SHARK!
DARING EXPLOIT.
A few days ago three School Boys, spending
few days at Tucker's Island, put out a large line
hoping to capture a Rock Fish seen cruising close
in shore, when about 11 o'clock one of the boys
went to look at the line, found it was hooked in a
very large fish. After about a quarter of an hour's
hard work, having being pulled down to the water
and on the rocks several times, succeeded in getting
a large shark on some flat rocks, the boy keeping
the Fish from getting back into the water by the
line; when the shark, by a single snap of his jaws,
cut the line in two, and in one jump turned his
head round to the water, and was about to escape
when the boy caught the monster by the tail. For
the next 10 minutes it was pull Dick, pull Devil,
but every time the Devil turned to snap at Dick, he
gained a foot or more by jumping to the opposite
side, which" continued until Dick got the line
round Devils' tail and secured him to the Rocks;
when his two companions came to his assistance
Devil was dragged across the Island to the front
of the House, where he was measured and found to
be 7 feet long. He had three rows of Teeth.

We have been kindly favored with two Barbados
papers the latest of the 13th ultimo, from which
we copy some proceedings of the Board of Health
of that Island.

THE HALF HOLIDAY EXPERIMENT.-The closing
of places of business in the Town of Hamilton,
from two o'clock of the afternoon of Friday of each
week, during the current and succeeding month,
for the purpose of giving both the employers and
employees an opportunity of enjoying a little
pleasure on a working day of each week-was com-
menced on Friday last, and we believe most of the
places in the Town were closed. It will be noticed
by our advertising columns, that a number of
other persons who did not sign the first list have
now pledged themselves in favor of the move.

THE ENGLISH MAIL OF THE 22nd JULY.
The R. M. Steamer A-lpha, Captain Crowell, from
Halifax, with the English Mail of the 22nd ultimo,
arrived at St. Georges on the afternoon of Thursday
last.
We thank Captain Crowell for early copies of Ha-
lifax papers of the 1set inst., which supply us with
English dates of the 30th, and accounts, very favor-
able, of President Garfield's health, of a late hour
of the previous night.
PRESIDENT GARFIELD.
Most favorable accounts continue to reach us with
respect to the state of General Garfield's health. We
subjoin the latest official bulletin.
Secretary Blaine sent the following highly satis-
factory telegram to Mr. Lowell Minister London on
the night of the 31st July:-
The President is steadily improving and I shall
henceforth omit my daily telegram. Not hearing
from me you may infer that all goes well."
The following is the official Bulletin issued at
Washington at 7 p m. of the 31st:-
The President has passed an excellent day from
just after the morning dressing till 6 p.m. He has
had his head and shoulders elevated by a frame be-
neath the mattress He has taken and relished an
ample supply of nourishment, and continues to im-
prove in general condition. The appearance of the
wound at evening dressing was in every way satis.
factory. The afternoon rise in temperature has been
quite insignificant. At present his pulse is 104;
temperature, 99; respiration, 20."
MORE SHOOTING THREATENED.-It is stated
that Secretary Windom has received a threatening
letter that if he don't remove clerk Lamphere he will
be shot.
THE LAND BILL.--The Land Bill was read a third
time in the House of Commons on the night of the
29th April and passed on a vote of 220 to 14, the
minority being exclusively composed of conserva-
tives.
The Land Bill was read a first time in the House
of Lords on the night of the 29th. The second read-
ing was to have taken place on the evening of 1st
August.
The Times of the 29th in discussing the Land
question says:-" Though the representatives of the
land interest are likely to be sufficiently severe in
their scrutiny of its details, it is probable that the
conduct of the Conservative Peers will be governed
by, in the main, the same motives of patriotic pru-
dence, as were displayed by the Opposition in the
Commons. It is understood that the second reading
will not be opposed, but that the followers of Lord
Salisbury will meet to-day to consider their course
of action and to determine points whereon amend-
ments can be offered. The Daily News states that
the proposed amendment to the Land Bill of Mr.
Wmin. H. Smith, providing for examination and re-
vision after six y ears of the Law and Constitution of
the Land Court, will be introduced in the Lords.
Most of the Parnellites voted upon the third reading
of the bill in the Commons, The Standard says the
expected debate on the second reading in the words
will be concluded on Tuesday. Committee will then
be taken on the bill on Thursday, and it is hoped it
will be concluded on Friday.

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN

Mn. EDIToB,-Upon perusing the debates as re-
ported in the Colonist," and noticing the action in

its own affairs after the Imperial Government de-
clined to send us another Bishop upon the death of
Bishop Feild; and after having under public notice
elected a Synod and a Bishop, without a'dissenting
voice-yet, when the Secretary of State proposes to
transfer from the Crown to that Synod the power
of appointing their ow* Clergy, a majority of the
Members of this Church in the House of Assembly
have voted to decline that proposition, and to put
the presentation in the hands of the Church rate.

BRIGAND ESPOSVtIO" TAKEN.
Fromthe New York Sun," July 12.
Bis Punishment demanded by England of the Italian
Government for Cutting off a Curate's Ears-His
Many Murders in Sicily.
To-day, Guiseppe Esposito, alias Radazzo, the
Italian brigand, is expected to arrive in this city
from New Orleans. The crimes of this man read
like a romance of ages long gone by. Eighteen
months ago his name was sounded through all
Europe; yet he is but a little fellow, not above five
feet four inches in height, stout, strong and athletic,
with a very black beard, piercing hazel Eyes and a
scar between the eyebrows reaching to the root of
the nose. This little embodiment of brigandage
weights about 170 pounds. A neat but nicely trimmed
black mustache adds to the general make-up of a
rather captivating fellow. He dresses neatly and
wears a long neck chain, generally passing it through
a buttonhole in his vest. A broad brimmed Panama
adorns his well shaped head. Such is the descrip-
tion of this red-handed Italian for whom his Govern-
ment asks extradition papers.
From inquiry it seems that not Italy but England
was the Government that brought about the arrest
and now claims the extradition. About two years
ago, an English curate named Rose, while traveling
in the mountains of Sicily, was captured by a band
of brigands, of which Exposito was the head. He
was kept for a time in close confinement, and after-
ward the chief wrote a letter to his wife demanding
125,000 francs ransom. If -his sum was not paid,
then the curate was to be put to death. Under ad-
vice the wife refused to pay the ransom. A second
letter came from Esposito, in which he threatened
to cut off one of the curate's ears if'the money was
not forthcoming. This, he said, he would inclose
in the next letter. A third letter showed how truly
tre horrible threat was carried out. The wife
received a letter in which was inclosed the right
ear of her husband. The letter with this ghastly
inclosure stated that if the ransom named were not
immediately forthcoming, a like package would be
sent containing the other ear. Threat followed
threat, the husband was to be sent in installments,
the left ear, then the nose, until, in little bits, the
almst crazed wife should have him. These horri-
ble letters so affected the lady that, with the aid of
her relatives, she raised and sent to Esposito the
amount asked.
Rose's release and return to England followed.
He demanded of his Government a retribution for
the outrage perpetrated on him, and the Govern-
ment at once took action. The Italian Government
was forced to raid the fastnesses of the brigands,
and the consequence was that Guiseppe Esposito,
with many others, was made a captive. He escaped,
however from his guards and fled to this country.
He was arrested in New Orleans on Tuesday last
by private detectives there, with the aid of two
detectives from this city. While in New Orleans it
appears that he made many warm friends among
the people of his nationality ; so strong, indeed, was
his frindship that it is reported that had his follow-
ers had any idea that he was about to be taken
prisoner they would have used every means in their
power to have secreted him, and would rather have
killed him than permitted him to be taken. It is
said that, long before his arrest was meditated, he
told his intimate friends who knew his career that
if any one of them was present when he was cap-
tared he was to kill him rather than stand by and
see him suffer the disgrace of being taken.
The general view taken by the Italians in this
city is that Esposito, or Radazzo, as he prefers to
call himself, is a cowardly our. Leone, who was the
chief of the brigands in Sicilly, had his own chief
assistant, a shepherd named Salpietro, and another
man named Giovanno Pegano. Esposite worked
Aor. alpietro, and was, with Pegano, a townsman of
ia. -e was made a field guard under Guecione
di Alia. At that time he was twenty eight years of
age and was worth 4,000 francs. He was on post
at Tortoresi at the time that Francesco Dubolini
was assassinated, and was arrested and locked up in
the Prison of Castello di Nnovo, from whieb he
escaped. A refugee from prison, he sought his
friend Pegano. to whose child he had stood as
sponsor, and. through him and Salpietro, the way
was made easy for him to join Leone's band. He
rapidly rose to be its leader His band captured
and mutilated Mr. Rose. Esposito is accused of a
number of frightful murders, among his victims
Aeing Formosa di Termini, Guiseppe Guccione di
Alia. Fihippo Areara di Montemaggiore. Chancellor
aginarini Michele and Vice-Chancellor Zito Nunzio.
These murders were committed by Salpietro his
former master, of whom he was always jealous.
After the death of Leone and the arrest of Salpie-
tro Esposito became frightened and came forward
and gave himself up to the authorities. As soon as
the jury was drawn, he commenced to tell fabulous
stories of his wealth. His treasures, he said, were
buried in various spots, and these hiding places he
would reveal to such of the jury as would give a
verdict in his favor. Bit the jury did not bite.
Esposito was convicted, but after one year's im-
prisonment he escaped, and on Sept. 5, 1878, he fled
to this country, making his way to New Orleans,
where he engaged in the fruit trade.

SCIENCE AND THE BIBLE.
The Annual Meeting of the Victoria Philo.-
sophical Institute of Great Britain took place at
the House of the Society of Arts, London, on the
30th of June, the Right Hon. the Earl of Shaftes-
bury, K.G., in the chair. The meeting was very
fully attended. Prior to the delivery of the ad-
dress, "On the Credibility of the Supernatural,"
by the Right Hon. the Lord O'Neill, the honorary
secretary, Captain F. Petrie, read the report, from
which it appeared that the total number of mem-
bers was now upwards of 900, a greater number
than usual, especially of colonial supporters, having
joined in the past year, during which papers and
shabort communications written in furtherance of the
Society's objects,-namely, the investigation of
philosophical and scientific questions, especially
those said to militate against the truth of 'Revela-


tion,--had been contributed by several leading men
of science, including his Grace the Duke of Argyll,
K.G., F.R.S., Sir J. Fayrer, F.R.S., Professors
Stokes, F.R.S., Boyd Dawkins, F.R.S., J. W. Daw-
son, F.R.S., Nicholson, F.R.S.E., Balfour Stewart,
F.R.S., Mr. J. Bateman, F.R S., and other Fellows
of the Royal Society, besides Professor Hughes,
Dr. Rassam, and others. The report closed with a
special tribute to the newspaper press The trea-
surer's report showed that a considerable advance
had been made by the Institute. Amongst the
speakers were Sir H. Barkly, K.C.B., G.C.M.G.,
F.R.S., Sir J. Fayrer, K.C.S.I., F.R.S., who strong-
ly urged that the Society's mode of fully and im-
partially investigating scientific questions was of
special importance; the Christian philosopher need
never fear for the results of investigations so con-
ducted, for the Books of Nature and Revelation
had the same author, and if the former were fair-
ly and impartially inquired into, the result would
not clash with the latter. Mr. J. E. Howard, F.R.
S., Mr. A. McArthur, M. P., the Master of the
Charterhouse, and others, having spoken, the meet-
ing adjourned to the Museum, where refreshments
were served.

TIHE manufacturers of Sapolio wanted to
combine with PRIDE OF THE KITCH-
EN, but we refused and reduced prices, hence

CATARRAH CURED.
DEAR SIm,-I have used your INDIAN BLOOD
SYRUP with great satisfaction and relief. I have
been afflicted with catarrah for a long time, could
get no relief, until I commenced using the BLOOD
SYRUP. I was about to give it up because imme-
diately after taking it made me dizzy and feel badly,
but on consulting a physician was informed that it
was caused by the medicine restoring my imperfect
erculation and acting on the diseased matter in my
stomach, caused by the droppings of the catarrah.
matter. I invariably found, however, that this dizzy
feeling soon passed away, my nervous system was
tranquilized, and the catarrhal poison removed by
fhe medicine. I have been entirely cured by your
invaluable remedy |

DYSPEPSIA.
DEAR SIR,-I used your INDIAN BLOOD SY-
RUP for Dyspepsia (from which I suffered for five
years,) with the happiest results.
A few doses placed my stomach in a condition to
digest ofod-thereby relieving me of those distress-
ng pains experienced by dyspeptics after eating-
and although it at first caused occasional dizziness
this quickly disappeared on my continuing its use.
My digestion is now almost perfect, and I feel great-

DEAR SIR,-I take pleasure in recommending
your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP as an invaluable
remedy for Dyspepsia. My wife has been a suffer-
er from periodical dyspeptic attacks of the most
acute nature for over 5 years. During such attacks
death would almost be a relief to her. She was
prescribed for by several doctors without effect.
nothing gave her relief until she obtained a bottle
of your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP. Its effects
were wonderful and she is now entirely cured. It

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Tuesday, 9th August, 1881.


As the whole of the reasoning of the Report'
of the Committee is founded upon a mistaken I
view of the Parliamentary practice and Legis-
lation of this Colony, and upon the singularly
imprudent practice of looking only at the
amount of money in the Treasury without tak-
ing into account the liabilities which that
money has to meet, I do not think that there
1* .i


is any necessity for my pursuing this subject
Pulled by Athority.] further.
[Published by Authority.] I append an Abstract" of the Returns
RECEIVER GENERAL'S OFFICE, for easy reference.
June 29th, 1S81. I have the honor to be, Sir,

SIR,- (Signed) JAMES TUCKER,
Having received His Excellency's directions Receiver General.
to report on the financial Statements contained
in the Report of the Select Committee," of .
the House of Assembly appointed to consider 8 .
the subject of His Excellency's Despatch No. S :
79, of 1880, referring to the reduction of the : : :
Public Debt of this Colony; I have the honor as "1
to submit the following Report:- :o ; o
1. That the Returns which accompanied 3 e-
my Report to His Excellency on this subject, -
dated 11th October 1880-were made up for 00 g
each legal financial year, namely, from the 1st E- ____.
of July in one year to the 30th of June in the o M c
following year, thus including the exact period o 0 0
embraced by each annual Supply Bill, whileI H 0 0 Q -a 0
the C committee's financial Statements are made P A S 0
up from the lst,April to the 31st of March in 1 2 o 4 t
each year, thus covering periods embraced in "
two separate Supply Bills; for example--their o o .
statement for the year I 877 commence on the o -
1st of April, 1877, thus embracing three 0 -
months of the supply Bill for the year 1876-7,
and ends on the 31st of March 1878, so cover- 1 Z R 4
ing nine months only of the Supply Bill for .
the year I,77-8. I cannot therefore compare 0 00oGo
their Statements with my Return-, but I have cc 000 0 00
prepared detailed Returns which accompany
this Report and which embrace the same pe-
riods as those covered by the Committee's (Signed) JAMES TUCKER,
Statements and can therefore be compared Receiver General.
with them.
2. The balances in the Treasury, as stated
by the Committee for the years ending 31st of [1.]
