THE ROYAL IRISH RIFLES MINSTREL
The above named troupe gave two performances
in the Royal Barracks, at St, Georges on 24th and
2.5th of last month. They were rewarded for their
pluckey effort by having two crowded houses, the
patronage they received being larger than at Pros-
pect, where they gave their first performances.
The first part of the programme was admirably ar-
ranged, and well carried out, each individual get.
ting a fair share of applause. The opening of the
second part commenced by Drum Major Cheesman
singing three comic songs in character, which was
a treat in itself. Then a song and dance by Pvte.
Johnston, very gracefully rendered. A character
song came next, entitled Old Mother Gum," sung
by Bandsman A. Soutter, who is very droll, and
made up as a capital old woman." A step dance
was then given by Pvte. Johnston, who was very
tastefully dressed, and repeatedly applauded. The
Drum Major then gave us three more capital songs,
viz., Millionaire." "Dear little innocent things,"
and My Pretty Jane." After singing the second
of these, a handsome bouquet was thrown on the
stage, from the reserved seats. His rendering of
My Pretty Jane," is a capital burlesque of Simms
Reeves' popular song; for which he was loudly
applauded. The entertainment concluded with a
sketch entitled Wax-ination, Gratis," which is
full of bustle and comic dialogue; great credit be-
ing due to all those who took part in it. The en-
tertainment was again a success on the second
night, the Drum Major changing his songs and
singing two encores, and Pte. Johnston coming in
for a bLouquet for his capital dancing. The troupe
will, we understand, perform at Ireland Island,
probably within a month, of which due notice is to

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH ON THE OCCASION.
Parliament was prorogued on Saturday the 27th
ultimo. Her Majestyi in Her Speech on the occasion,
declares the relations with foreign powers amicable
and cordial. Satisfactory assurances received from
France regarding Tunis. Self Government been
secured to Transvaal, which it is hoped will tranquil-
izo South Africa. The withdrawal of British troops
from Afghanistan is not expected to lead to any
trouble on north western frontier of India. Although
negotiations have been temporarily suspended the
best efforts will be made to conclude commercial
treaty with France. In reference to Irish affairs the
Queen says it is her earnest hope that the new land
act may be productive of benefits commensurate with
the care given to the measure. It has been the
study of Her Majesty to use the exceptional powers
confided to her in Ireland with vigilance and firm-
ness but with discrimination. Desire is expressed
that the condition of the country will so improve that
the use of these extraordinary powers may be dis-
pensed with or abated.
The latest report of President Garfield's health,
which reached us on Thursday last via Halifax, is
of 11 p.m.,of 28th ultimo, and is in these words :-
Dr. Woodward reports at this hour that the Pre-
sident's condition continues favorable. His tem-
perature has gone down since the evening examina-
tion, but his pulse when last taken, about an hour
ago, had not changed since 6-30."
On the night of the 26th at 9 o'clock, the Pro-
sildent's symptoms were of a most alarming char-
acter. On the night of the 27th there was a
hopeful improvement. On the night of the 28th
the following deapatch was sent by Secretary
Blaine to Mr. Lowell, London : The condi-
tion of the President at 10 o'clock to-night con-
tinues as favorable as could be expected. With-
in the past thirty hours his improvement has
given great encouragement to attefiding surgeons.
He swallows an adequate amount of liquid food,
the paroted swelling discharges freely and gives
promise of marked improvement. His wound is
perfectly clear. He has perhaps a little more fever
than was anticiapted and his respiration is some-
what above normal. The general feeling is one of
hopefulness. Two or three days more of improve-
ment will be needed to inspire confidence.

An affecting Scene.-About the middle of the after-
noon the President expressed a desire to see his daugh-
ter Mollie and when she entered the room and came
to his beside he took her hand and asked about her
health. She replied that she was well, and enquired
how he himself felt. He said, I am better ; ask
your mother if the boys cannot come in." Soon
afterwards James came to the bedside, and -was greet-
ed by his father affectionately. The President's
pulse, however, began to rise with the excitement
and emotion of this interview with his children, and
it was thought best not to allow Harry to see him,
Mrs. Garfield.-Late this afternoon Mrs. Garfield
and her daughter Mollie, with Mr. Rudolph and C.
R. Rockwell, of St. Louis, went out for a drive. Mrs.
Garfield looked bright and cheerful, notwithstanding
the terrible nervous strain which she has born with
such unconquerable courage for eight long weeks,
and as the carriage passed through the main gateway
on Pennsylvania Avenue, around which a crowd had
lingered all day, she responded with a bow and a
smile to the salutations of the guard, and to the
greeting of one or two acquaintances who were pass-
ing. Some one standing near the gateway cried
"That is Mrs. Garfield," and by a sudden and spon-
taneous impulse almost all the men in the crowd
stood with uncovered heads, while the carriage pass-
ed, as if they wished to show, in the only way they
could, their profound and tender sympathy with her
suffering, and their respect and admiration for her
noble courage and undying faith.

A FEW FACTS ABOUT OUR CURRENCY;"
It is estimated by the Deputy Master of the Min,
that out of the total gold coinage in circulation
amounting to about one hundred millions sterling,
not less than 40 per cent is light to a degree which
tenders the coins no longer legal tender. It is to be
observed, however, that a Sovereign reaches thio "
point when it has lost three quarters of a.grain of'
its weight, worth about three halfpence. The esfiL
miated life" of our sovereign and halfsovereign is
about eighteen years. It is satisfactory to learn
that although sovereigns are occasionally found
which have been tampered with, our gold coinage
does not,as a rule, suffer from anything but fair
wear and tear. It appears that the Bank of England
is accustomed to send light gold to the Mint for "
recoinage at the rate of nearly one million per an-
num. The Deputy Master considers that a sys-
tematic recoinage of our light gold has now become
a matter of "some pressing necessity," and that the
operation would be accomplished in about four "
years. The last 'calling in' of the ,gold coin
took place in 1842, when, in accordance with the
Queen's proclamation, the price of 3 17s. 10}d4 -
per ounce Was paid for the light gold on delivery
at the Bank of England. Upwards of eleven million
sterling in light sovereigns and half-sovereigns
were forwarded to the Mint for recoinage In the
first eighteen months,
Owing to the fall in the market price of silver,
the profit on coining silver pieces has risen sincd
1870 from 9 per cent to 81-34 per cent. As the
Mint, however, receives back worn silver coins at
their full nominal value, the net result of its cqin&-
age operations in respect of the silver pieces is sup-.
posed to be rather a los than a profit.
From a statement of the Hon. C. W. Freemantle
before a recent Select Committee of the House of
Commons, it appears that the intrinsic value of oulr
bronze money is only one-fift h of its nominal value ,.
in other Words, there is a profit of four hundred per
cent on the manufacture of these coins, which is
necessarily a government monopoly.
NEWFOUNDLAND'S FIRST RAILWAY.
Promising Discovery of Gold on the Line-the
work to be rapidly pushed -ST. JOHNs, August 16.--
The New York and Newfoundland Railway Com-
pany formally commenced the work of railroad con-
struction in this island to-day. Shortly before noon
the first sod was turned under the management of
Mr. Bolland, an engineer of Europeann reputation
and several squads of navvies are now buily engaged
in grading those sections of the road that had been
previously located. The two termini of the railroad
are St. Johns on the south, and the' norlh shore of
Notre Dame Bay on the northerly end. Concur-
rently with the inauguration of the railway' work in
St. Johns there is reported from undoubted sources a !
gold find of extraordinary promise at Mings Bight,
close to the very spot where the New York Com'pany,
at least for the present, purposes terminating their
line. The vein ranges from tep and a half to twelve
inches in breadth on the surface and widens con-
siderably as it descends. It has beemn found by the
assayer to yield eighteen ounces of pure gold to the
ton of ore, and so far as explorers have ascertainmed
the vein preserves an unbroken continuity for several'
miles. The proposed 400 miles of railroad 'now ac-
tually begun run through the whole of the principal
metalliferous belts of the island, and the capitalist
of New York who have secured this golden contract
with the Newfoundland government willtdaily'dis-
cover to their extreme satisfaction, as the work pro..
gresses, that in their eight mile alternate locks a-'
long the whole line of railway they have secure&
mines of rich, rare and undoubted wealth, from which
the means of building a halt dozen Newfoundlantd
railroads such as the one contemplated can be-obtain-It
od. The Premier of Newfoundland and Mr. Black-
man, the mnianinger of the New York company, are
now in London, and will leave for St. Johns by they
next Allan Steamer. Mr. Blackmaii vill then.pro-,
ceed without delay to New York, and there organize'"
and despatch to St. Johns several corps of engineers
for the immediate location of the whole line. Tti6
work of construction is now calculated to be broughtii
to completion within two years. ''
Five hundred years ago the women of Etirop r
had in their hands nearly all thegeninemedicalandr
surgical practice. The ladies of the medieval castle
and of the later country houses had a traditional
skill in sampless" and in surgical pratice. The' i
regular doctors of those times were generally
quacks, whose recipe books still record their shame-''
les guessing and their profound ignorance, Medi-
cine passed from the woman to the men, chiefly
through the advance made by great chedtnBts '6of
the rougher sex. It will never return to the extent
they once had it in their hands. But their long and
unreasonable exclusion from its practice isa ceasing.
They are, for the future, to hold an honorable anad
recognized place by the side of men.

From the New York Herald, August 25.
Boers and Caffres-Interviews with
S the Leaders.
Our Pretoria correspondent sends the following:
-Last eyefipkg Twas iivited by Dr. Jorrissen to
meet the Bodr Triumvirate and hear from them
their views for the, future settlement of the Trans-
vaal, and also upon the occurrences of the last few
months. On my arrival at the house I found pres.
ent Messrs. Paul Kruger, Pretorius, Piet Joubert,
Boskes, Dr. Jorissen himself, and Mr. Esseler, who
most kindly volunteered to act as interpreter be-
tween myself and Paul Kruger, the only one of the
party who did not speak English. He, however,
understards the greater part of all that is said to
him. To Pretorious, as the ex-President of the
late Republic, I was introduced first. Both he and
Paul Kruger are most disappointing in appearance.
Kruger is apparently about sixty years of age. He
Is over six feet high, but fat and unwieldy, and
has a waddling walk. His face is dull, flabby and
expressionless. His small bleared eyes are half
hidden by the heavy lids. Long, thin, straggling
hair covers his head. He shaves his chin and upper
lip, but allows an untidy fringe of hair to grow all
round his face. In dress he is slovenly and care-
less. After greeting me very cordially be sat back
huddled up on his chair, smoking a long clay pipe
and apparently oblivious of all that was said
around him, but in reality taking in and remem-
bering every word uttered. It is only when Kruger
speaks that the naturally determined character and
shrewd, hard headed common sense of the man
come out. He is credited with possessing more
power of dogged resistance, combined with daring
adventure, than any of the other leaders. Pretorius
somewhat resembles Kruger, but is bigger and
stoufter, weighing nearly eighteen stone. He has the
same dull, heavy, blotched face, and is about the
same age, He wears the ordinary peasant shoes,
called veldt scones, made of rough, untanned leather,
and is generally untidy about his dress and appear-
ance. During the whole of our interview, which
lasted almost four hours, he kept on his slouch hat
and long, thick overcoat. Never once, even when
speaking, did he remove the pipe from his lips ex-
cept to replenish it or to sip his gin and water.
Vlhen Pretorius does rouse himself he ocoa-ionally
lets a jolly smile brighten up his otherwise rather
forbidding face; then his expression is completely
changed, and allows one to form a far more pleasing
estimate of his character. He is not endowed with
any great amount of brains, and has been chosen a
member of the Triumvirate for the traditional prest-
ige emanating from his name rather than from any
natural qualification he is possessed of for the
place of a leader. Boskes is by birth a Hollander,
about forty years of age, fat and fair, with abun-
dant beard and mustache, a florid face and an un-
pleasant expression of countenance. He is of a to-
tally different stamp thad the other members of the
Boer Council. Mr. Esseler is a student of medi-
cine at the Edinburgh University in Scotland.
Upon first signs of the outbreak he was sent for by
the Triumvirate to take charge of the ambulance
corps, but arrived too late to render anyas distance
in the field, and was therefore made Secretary to
the commission on the Boer side. He speaks Eng-
lish Dutch and German equally well. Although a
young man he will doubtless fill an important post
under the new Government.
After a few remarks about the fight at Bronker's
Spruit and the siege of Potchefstroom the conver.
station tell on the plans of the Boers: -
i- Correspondnt-Having regained your right of
self-government do you intend to make a railroad ?
Kruger-We should naturally wish for a railroad.
We wish to be behind no other of the colonies.
But, if England exerts herself to prevent us, it will
be a very difficult task for us to obtain one.
Correspondent-How would England exert any
power in the matter-?
Pretotius-Ii-ehe sees we are laying down a line
she may step in and take away a strip of territory
through which the line must pass. She can so leave
us the interior with no means of access to the coast.
Joubert-I do not think that at present a railroad
is necessary for us. While we are obliged to treat
with only one Power it is almost impossible for us
to make any great advancements or improvements.
We could not yetmake our line pay. All the ports are
In British hands, and we should, therefore, receive
no customs duties to enable us to pay for the rail-
way. Of course we might charge a second set of
duties on all goods tnte ing the country, but then
we could not afford to buy the articles which had
paid such heavy duties.
Kruger-We shall also keep up telegraphic com-
munication with the rest of the world, but we will
not pledge ourselves to maintain the line at pres-
ent laid down, or to lay another in any given di-
Correspondent-What will be the necessary quali-
fications for a member of the Volksraad ?
Kruger-Exactly the same as they were before
the annexation. A foreigner may be admitted just
the same as a Boer, provided that he is a burgher.
He may be of any religion as long as he is not a
Pretorius-Years ago a law was in force making
It obligatory on a member of the Volksraad to be a
Christian, but in the year 1864 we revoked it.
Correspondent-Then a Christian Caffre will be
eligible as a member ?
Allin Chorus-No! certainly not. Under no con-
Jouetr,-Tbat is to say, at present. But if at any
future time the Caffres become as a nation civilized
and Christianized then they will be made eligible
Correspondent-May Caffres hold land by legal
Kruger-Caffres cannot hold a title to land them-
selves. They must reach a much higher standard of
civilization before they can be permitted to do so.
At present the State will hold the land in trust for
Correspondent-Englishmen are constantly telling
the commission that the country having been given
back to to the Boer rule they will not be able to
live in it any longer. They say they will be taxed
out of all proportion to the Dutch and will be com-
manded to fight out of their turn.
Kruyer-This never happened before, and why
should it now ?
Joubert-- The question is this :-If foreigners, for
I will not class Englishmen as different from any
other nationalities who may live among us, if they
want to be burghers they must obey the Burgher
law. They will find no difference made between
them and true born Boers.
Dr. Jorissen--This is of all countries in the world
the most liberal in its dealings with foreigners wish-
ing to reside under its laws. Here it only requires
one year's residence to entitle a man to all the
rights and privileges of the Burgher law.
Joubert-If a man says hbe is merely a temporary
resident he need not fulfil the obligations of a
burgher. But ilhe.desires to vote and to enjoy the
full rights of citizenship then he must also be bound
by the obligations of the burgher. Men in war time,
however-rno shopkeepers and no clerks-are com-
pelled to fight. If their turn comes they are al.
lowed to pay 5 instead of bearing arms them-
Kruger-Very justly men who do not wish to
fight are made to pay towards the support of thos3
who are willing to risk their lives for their country.
Pretorius-We have no frivolous wars. We do
not fight because some officer has brought an insult
upon himself, or for some trifling breach of eti-
quette.' If we fight it id to protect our homes and
bearths or to punish murder and rapine.
Kruger-A. man cannot expect to come here and
make his fortune either from commerce or tilling
the land without paying for the protection of the
laws which enable him to live in security. He can-
not do so in any other civilized country, and natu-
rally he cannot do so here either.
Pretorius-Rest assured that never in past time
have foreigners been called upon either to pay
heavier taxes or to run greater risks in the battle
than our brother Boers, and in the future they will
be treated as in the times gone by.
Correspondent--If Sir Henry Bulwer had been
sent up to Pretoria as the first Governor, and had
carried out a wise and just policy, would the coun-
try have ever settled down quietly under British
Pretorius-No, never. Under no conceivable
circumstances would our people have ever submit-
ted to British rule.
Kruger-We will have no government but our
own. We left the Cape Colony to be independent
We left Natal and we left the Orange Free Stat,
when it was free no longer. In 1852, by the Lan
River Convention, the British Government at las
recognized our determination to b3 be free and
promised to leave us unmolested in our new homt
across the Vaal River. Then we were few in num-
ber, poor in cattle and with no money. Twent-five
years elapsed. We had become prosperous, rich
and happy. Then the British Government again
coveted our land. They said we were bankrupt,
that we were too feeble to protect ourselves, and
under such wretched excuses our freedom was again
taken from us.
Correspondent-But what is the chief cause of
discontent with the British Government ?
Joubert-The whole system throughout South
Africa is radically wrong. We will never endure
t. South Africa can never be happy and prosper-
ous under it.
Pretorius-No; there is no one cause. When a
nation wants to be free, nothing but freedom will
satisfy it. Personally I have against the British
government the complaint that they will always
listen attentively to scoundrels with well filled
purses, but turn deaf ears to the entreaties of honest
men who are poor and not sufficiently powerful to
make themselves heard.
Joubert-But for the headstrong action of Sir
Owen Lanyon last December there would not even
now have been blood shabed. He said to us :-" Either
-give up your best men or declare yourselves rebels."
We had no escape. We could not give up our men ;
so we were declared rebels. Even then we did not
commence by fighting. It was necessary for us to
have certain documents printed. We sent men to
protect the documents while in the hands of the
printers, and these men were fired upon by British
Pretorius-Sir Owen Lanyon gave orders, Fire
upon all parties coming within a mile of any town
or bearing arms."
Jorissen-We intercepted these orders. Then we
could not on our part allow troops to move and
this was the reason of the Broubers Sprint engage-
Correspondent-Now will you tell me to what
cause chiefly you attribute your extraordinary vic-
tory over the disciplined forces of a great military
Kruger- (speaking with the greatest reverence)-
There is only one cause. The Lord will not allow
injustice to prevail.

DEAR SIR,-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 catararh
matter. I invariably found, however, that this dizzy
feeling soon passed away, my nervous system was
tranquilized, and the catarrhal poison removed by
the medicine. I have been entirely cured by your

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 dyapeptic 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
is a medicine that no household should be without.
