An Inquest was held in the Town Hall, St.
Georges on the 17th inst., before Dennis Tucker,
Esq., Coroner, on view of. the body of Hans Tor-
messen, late a seamen on the British barque Con-
gou." The deceased was employed as night watch-
man on the vessel, and was seen sitting on
the forward rail. of the vessel on Sunday night,
14th inst., at 8 p.m. On the following morning ho,
was found on a floating stage, lying alongside of
the vessel, which had been used by the caulkers.
From the evidence brought before the Court it was
supposed that the unfortunate man fell from the
rail to the stage while sleeping, his face was badly
cut and bruised but there were no bruises on any
other part of the body. He lingered until Wednes-
day morning, but never recovered his senses. Tho
Jury returned an open verdict, in accordance with
the evidence.-From information received by the
Coroner on Friday last a seaman on board the
barque Congou" has been arrested in connection
with the case and is now being examined before
the Police Magistrate.

The statisticians at home do some quick work at
times, and certainly h ave done so in calculating the
results of the census of the population of the United
Kingdom taken on the night of April 4 last, these
results having already been published in full. Ac-
cording to these the population of the United Xing.
dem of Great Britain and Ireland, including all the
islands pertaining thereto and the army, navy and
merchant seamen abroad, is 35,246,562 an increase
in ten years of 4,147,286. The population of the
three great divisions is as follows: England and
Wales 25,968,280, an increase of 3,256,020 since
1871; Scotland 3,734,370, an increase of 374,352 ;
Ireland 5,159,839, a decrease of 252,538. The me.
tropolis itself has increased its population by 560,-
311, the number of souls at present being no less
than 8,814,571 or a greater number of inhabitants
than Scotland possesses. The next largest city in
England is Liverpool, with over 550,000 of a popu-
lation, or an increase of nearly 60,000 in ten years.
Birmingham has over 400,000; Manchester and
Leeds over 300,000 ; Sheffield and Bristol over 200,-
000, while Portsmouth, Salford, Bradford, Hull,
Newcastle, Oldham, Sunderland, Brighton and
Nottingham, have all over 100,000 inhabitants.
The army numbers 99,637 men, the navy 22,507,
and the merchant service abroad 120,700, of whom
2,330 are foreigners. These figures are interesting
as showing the steady increase of the population at
home, notwithstandi-g the large emigration which
goes on constantly.

have determined for the present, not to issue poli-

(Colored) owing to the prevalence of yellow fever
in the Island, under the suposition tbat such persons
are more susceptible of contracting the disease.
General Gamble commanding the troops in a
letter to the Governor in reference to the "gully
near Queen's House," says at this time more espe-
cially when yellow fever has appeared, while quar-
antine laws are in operation to protect us from
without, I appeal to your Excellency whether a
constant danger to health and life, (and a danger
from preventible causes,)in our very midst, should be
allowed to continue until the reiterated representa-
tion of those, who are suffering from it, are verified
by deaths in their families."
The Witness of the 21st July says :-It is with
feelings of deep regret that we have to announce
the sudden death of the Rev. A. T. Mc(lenaghen,
Minister of the Scotch Kirk here. Much sickness
has prevailed of late among the young Scotebmen
who have recently arrived in this Island. The
Minister was very attentive to the sick and spared
no trouble in visiting the fever stricken youths in
the country as well as in Town. He himself caught
fever and after a few days illness succumbed by
prostration at noon on the 14th instant."
The Witness of same date mentions the death by
fever of Mr. John W. McClenaghen, a son of the

THE CENSUS OF BARBADOS.-A return of the num-

the 3rd April, was laid before the House of Assem-

town, St. Peter, and on board the Shipping (di-
minution 416, 52 and 10 respectively), there is an
increase in each line of the abstract, small in the
case of the farther parishes, and noticeable only in
three adjacent to the City-of St. Michael, Christ
Church and St. George.

Washington, August 12.-The President has
passed a good day and night. His appetite has im.
proved and the pus discharged is healthy and has
dinininished in quantity.
During the operation performed on the Presi-
dent, on Monday last, Dr. Bliss cut his right fore-
finger with the instrument with which the opera-
tion was performed. The wound, though slight,
became much irritated, and to-day it is consider-
ably swollen. It is supposed that same of the pus
remained oh the instrument and caused the inflam-
mation which ensued.

The House of Lords makes a Fight on the Land Bill
LONDON, August 12.-The Laud Bill as amended
in the House of Commons came up for consider-
ation to-day in the-House of Lords. In clause 1 of
the Duke of Argyll's amendment excluding from the
right of free sale tenancies upon which permanent
improvements have been made by the landlord, a
trifling modification was made of a provision insert-
ed in the House of Commons that improvements
must substantially be maintained. The Lords'
amendment relative to Ulster tenant rights, which
was rejected in the House of Commons, was rein-
stated by a vote of 179 to 46. The latest intelli-
gence at the House of Lords at 10 o'clock to-night
indicates that the amendments of the House of Com-
mons are not being generally accepted.
French Troubles ia Africa.- -LoNDoN, August 12.-
A despatch from Tunis, dated the 10th inst., says :
" The maraudingbands,' who have hitherto confined
themselves to the districts east and south of Tunis,
have now commenced depredations in the country
in the direction of Algeria. It is stated that some
mountain tribes on the border have also revolted,
but it is impossible to ascertain to what extent.
Most of the French troops are moving in that di-
rection which tends to show that the disturbance is
serious. There are only about three hundred French
cavalry in the City of Tunis, so that it is impossible
to check the depredations of mounted Arabs.
The Duke of Argyll to be Married.-LONDON, Au-
gust 12.-The marriage of the Duke of Argyll with
the daughter of the Right Rev. Thomas Leigh
Claughton, D. D., Bishop of St. Albans, will be
solemnized to-morrow at the Episcopal Palace, and
will be quite private. The bride is a niece of Ear
Dudley. I

TRINIDAD.-Among the passengers by the Royal
Mail Steamer on the 4th-(states the New Era),.was
no less distinguished a person than Prince Kofi
Nti of Ashantee, son of the late King of that place.
It appears that after the capture of CiOmassie, the
capital of that Kingdom, by the English, some
years ago, the two sons of the conquered monarch
were taken by the English to England for the pur-
pose of educating them. One died some time ago
of consumption, owing to the unfavourableness of
the climate to his constitution, and his survivor,
our present visitor, is said to have been sent here
to avoid the like disadvantage while completing
his scholastic studies in a climate more congenial
to his constitution. He is, we understand, for the
present under the tutorage of Mr. Collens, the Su-
perintendent of the Government Boys' Model and
Normal Schools, and lodges at that Institution. He
is about 18 years of age."

itable Societies for a few past years in Bermuda.
The Benediction was then pronounced, the Society
then reformed and marched to the Odd Fellows

decorated with flowers and refreshments of various
kinds; much credit is due to the Stewards, Mr.
Israel Wilson and Mr. Augustus Pearman for the
able manner in which the table was arranged.
There were about 400 officers and members present
at the lunch, and amongst the number was the Rev.

plained of added some sensational account of his
antecedents, which they have found out since were
not true, as they have taken them all back and

Sweet thoughts that quickly fly ?
Why do our fond hearts cling
To things that die ?
We toil-through pain and wrong;
We fight-and fly;
We love; we lose ; and then ere long;
Stone dead we lie.
0 life, is all thy song,
Endure and-die!"
