*.* 1 vT I
Three thousand different people claim to be-the
first discoverers of the first o the ~hee comets that
have lately appeared.

President Garfield died at Long Branch on the
19th of September. Ills death was sudden at half
past ten at night. His attending physician had
left him a short time before, expecting his patient
to rest quietly during the night, but in a few min-
utes he was called to the sick room and found the
President dying. His symptoms had been very
alarming and death was looked for, but not at the
time nor in the way that it came. The first few
days at Long Branch were a great comfort to the
sick man. He was moved to an easy chair and
rested there for an hour or more on two consecutive
days. He enjoyed the sight of the ocean and ne-
ver tired of it. He watched the vessels, as nearing
port, they passed across his line of vision. He
heard the monotone of the surf as it broke on the
sand. Hoe all the time showed and expressed the
delight he took in his new surroundings. But on
the first Saturday some trouble of the lungs was
discovered, and he never moved from his bed again.
The second Saturday was even more disastrous,
for on that day chills set in, which never afterwards
left him, though occurring at long intervals. He
still, however, retained some of the tenacity of life
which he has shown all along, and there were slight
signs of a rally on Monday afternoon. They
proved delusive however, and between ten and
eleven, complaining of great pain over or near his
heart, he almost immediately, and without further
sign or struggle, died. The autopsy which has
been held, proves that he never would have been a
well man. The ball was found encysted at a spot
higher than the doctors supposed. Their probes
had never followed its track but had gone up a
passage formed by the suppurrating process. A
large pus cavity was found near the liver, ar- '"
immediate cause of death was second.'- "r- -mo- e '
of one of the arteries near c. t.rck of the ball.
The particulars of t Wouno, would have little
interest fq: nio general reader. 'he ball was large
ati crushed through bone an4 muscle. It was:
meant to kill and it accomplished its vile purpose..
The end came without a shock, as the symptoms
of the last few days only left its time of coming in
doubt. The surgeons still claim that their patient's
condition was not pycemic, but they admitted that
it was septic, and that whatever the difference, the
danger was about the same. It was known that
one of the consulting surgeons had never felt hope-
ful of the case, and the physician in charge had
modified his sanguine assurances. His treatment,
notwithstanding his mistakes as to the course and
lodgement of the ball, is considered skilful and
was certainly most assiduous, and his confident, al-
most boastful, promises and predictions are excused
as a part of the method by which he braced himself
and those about him to do without faltering their
very best. Though coming without a shock, the
death causes no less sadness. It is a curious in.
stance of popular identification with a sick room
and a death bed. Had the White House at Wash-
ington and the Long Branch cottage, been without
roof or window, the public could not more unob-
structedly have stood h- watch the sufferer.
Tho fullest and most pia Luilar accounts were pub-
lished and read. The heroism of the sufferer, his
patience and composure, his self-denial and con-
stant desire to spare and consider others, his pleas-
ant readiness to assist and obey his doctors, his un-
complaining endurance and the equal courage with
which he waited for life or death, endeared him to
all. It was noticed that in his wande rings he al-
ways grounded any hope of life on his desire to
fill out the term and do the work to which he had
been elected. His election and illness have re-
vealed a family of remarkable qualities. Simple
people of unambitious life and habits, they have
used the privileges and borne the burdens so con-
spicuously placed upon them, with tact, good feel-
ing, moderation and consistency. The President,
to be sure, had gained distinction, and died on the
eighteenth anniversary of the battle of Chicamauga,
when for gallantry in the field he won the stars of
a Major General. His congressional career made
him the leader of his party in the House of Repres-
entatives, and more than any of his rivals he gave
promise of that dispassionate and intelligent politi-
cal action, which if not statesmanship comes near-
est to it. It is owing to all these circumstances
that the interest in his illness, the sadness at his
death, have been and are so great and universal.
In New York business was almost suspended.
Without call or concert, without official re-
quest or authority, exchanges and theatres were
closed, Courts adjourned, and buildings were gene-
rally draped in mourning. The expressions of
condolence come not only from all parts of the
States, but from foreign countries, and of all of
them have more touched the public heart than the
Message sent by the Queen directly tojMirs.Garfield.
All forms of ceremony were put aside, and one
woman who has gone through great grief, with
the tenderness her own sufferings have taught her,
sends across the Atlantic these words: "Mrs. Gar-
field, Long Branch. "Words cannot express the
deep sympathy I feel with you at this terrible mo-
ment. May GOD support and comfort you as He
alone can. The Queen, Balmoral Castle." The
Court had been ordered to wear mourning for a
week; the London Stock Exchange had cabled to
New York their intention to close on the day of the
President's burial, or on any day set apart for pub-
lic observance, and municipalities and public bodies
were vying with one another in sending words of
sympathy across the Atlantic.
Fifteen days from that hot day when the Presi-
dent made his remarkable journey to Long Branch,
all that was left of him was taken back to Wash-
ington. The same engine draped in sables drew
the train back, and very much the same party of
relatives and friends were with him, one notable
addition being the new President who was in at-
tendance. The day was cooler, but the passengers
who on the former occasion, were more or less
buoyed up by hope, were now deep in gloom. The
dead man, it is now said, never shared their hopes.
lie had no belief in his recovery, but only wished
to try the change, and to benefit by surroundings
which sick or well, were more acceptable to him.
The same and infinitely larger crowds waited on
the route for his coming, and with hats off render-
ed silent and in many cases tearful homage to the
funeral train. Mrs. Garfield with her usual good
sense, desired all the ceremonies to be simple and
quiet. But something had to be conceded to pre-

cedent, and something, too, to the popular
desire to shew reverence to the dead. So the body
will lie in state in the Capital at Washington for
two days, and will then be taken to Cleveland,
where after one day of similar formality, it will be
buried. Washington was in darkest weeds when
it received back its President who had been. More
than in New York, the symbols of mourning |
abound, and abundant drapery folds the pillars
and columns of the stately public buildings, and
also every place of trade or of residence. As in
New York, again, it is observable how the poorer [j
neighborhoods join and in effort surpass the richer
localities in show of sorrow. No one seems too
poor or too forgotten to hang out a bit of crape, or
to let a swathe of black and white cambric fall
from their windows. The President will be buried I
at Cleveland, Ohio, in a graveyard he always ad-
mired, and in which he has expressed a desire to "
be buried when his time came. It is a beautiful
cemetery in his native State, a few miles from
where ha was born, and a few miles from where
he lived in a home to which he was greatly at-
tached. There the man of large intellect and heart,
of courage and equanimity in good or adverse for-
tune, of cordial manners and genial nature, will I
fitly rest on the slope of a wooded ridge overlook-
ing the blue waters of Lake Erie.

Death o4f President Garfield.
The Tlil Steamer Flamborough," Captain
Whitehurat from New York came into port yester-
day morning with her Flags half mast, from which
circumstance it was infered that President Gar-
field's life had terminated, and by the earliest com-
munication with the steamer that sorrowful infer-
ence was too fully confirmed. President Garfield's
death took place at 10 35 p.m., of the 19th instant.
Full particulars of the deeply distressing events
will be found embodied in an article in a previous
column. The good man's final obsequies was to
have talcon place yesterday.
As soon as the death of President Garfield be-
eame generally known in Bermuda, the Flags at the
several Government Stations, at the various Con-
sulates, and at all the merchants houses and pri-
vate dwellings, were hoisted half mast, some of
them draped with crape-out of profound sorrow
for the murdered President.
On the 20th Chester A. Arthur, Vice President
of the United States took the oath of office as Pre-
sident of the United States, to which he succeeded
by virtue of the Constitution, and immediately en.
tered on his official duties.
It is generally believed that he will not change
the policy of his predecessor.
We are indebted to Captain Whitehurst, Mr. Pur-
ser Dupont and Mr. Chief Steward Morraine, for
files of New York papers of the 22nd instant.

o'clock I proceeded tip stairs to the President's
room.ioa entering I found Mrs. Garfield setting by
^ his bedijde. I said to her, How is everything go-

said I tJ;., you bad better go to bed and rezt."
She felt oAtho President's hand and laid her hands
on his foreh-ad and s-aid de spmis to be in a

immediately felt his hbauls. ffet ad", knees. I
thought his knees semne, a little cool and ',t a
flannel cloth, heated it at the fire and laid it over
his limbs. I also heated another cloth and laid it
over bis right an(d, and then sat down in a chair
beside his bed. I was hardly seated when Dr.
Boynton cane in and felt the President's pulse. I
asked him how it seemed to him. He replied,
"It is not as strong as it was this afternoon, but
very good." I s-id, "He srEnis to be doing well "
"Yes," he answered, anl passed out. Shortly
after this the President awok -. As he turned his
head on awakening I arose and took hl, d of his
hand. I remarked, "You have had a nice cor'ort-
ble sleep." He then said, Oh! Swaim, this ter-
rable pain,' p:essng his right breast. about over the
region of the heart. I asked him if I could do
anything for him. Hie sail', "Some water." He
drank the water very naturally. Afterw-rd I took
a napkin and wiped his forehead, as he usually
perspired on awaking. He th"n said, Oh, :waim,
this terrible pain ; pr'ss your hand on it." I laid
my hand on his chest. Ie then threw both hands
up to the side aid about on a line with his h:ad
and exclaimed, Oh, Swaim can't you stop this??"
and again, '" Oh, Swainm." I then s iv him look-
ing at me with a sturin- erixpression. I asked. him
if he was suffering much pain. R,-c'iving no
answer, I repea ed the qu-stion with like result.
I then concluded that he was either dying or was
having a severe spasm, and called to Daniel, who
was at the door, to tell Dr. Bliss atnd Mrs OGai field
to come in iuimediately, and glanced at the small
Schlock hanging on the chandelier, nearly over the
foot of his bed, and saw tnat it was ten minutes
past 10 o'clock. Dr. Bliss came in within two or
three minutes.
When Dr. Bliss came in a mom n t after I said,
"Doctor, have you any stimulant, he seems to be
dying ?' He took hold of his wrist as it feeling
for his pulse and said, Yes, he is dying." I
then said: to Daniel, Run and arouse the house."

Bliss said, L't u ru oi : : b," which we did.

For the Royal Gazette.
In an article which we contributed to the Gazette
and which was published in its last issue, we pro-
mised to suggest a plan for obtaining'better prices
for produce for the coming crop than was realized
the past season. There is something rather pre.-
suming for one to come forward and to tell the
whole community that he is wiser than other men.
The writer could hardly be indued to publish an
article over his real name with such pretentious.
SIn as much, however, as his identity is unknown,
he feels relieved from any delicacy on the question.
He can stand in the middle of the crowd at the
street corners and join wih the hy-percrities as they
denounce his presumutioa without his identity even
I being suspected. Moreover there is nothing origin-
al in the suggestions about to be made. The plan
has often been discussed but no person has thought
proper to bring it before the public in the form of a
news-paper Communication. It would be strange
indeed if the small Island of Bermuda situated in
mid-ocean and containing but little overtwo thousand
acres of cultivatable land should be able to over-

stock the markets of the world with her products.
Such a proposition surelyis not admissable. Yet we
see that the shipping of one hundred thousand boxes
of onions monthly forthree successive months does
over-stock the New York market so far as to make
prices purely nominal. There is no doubt, however,
that the actual consumers of these onions pay three
or four timesas much for them as the growers receive
It is asserted that capitalists control the New York
market and that all kind of tricks are resorted to for
the purpose of depreciating the price of the onion while
in the first or original hands. It is said that large
numbers of boxes of onions have been left upon the
wharf in New York by these tricksters and monopo-
lists, to rot, in order to deter others from compet-
ing with them in buyiun and selling. It is also said
that thel merchants in New York combine together
and fix prices to suit th,'umlvei wholly disregard-
ing the interest of the onion grower. Not only this
but some have gone so far as to implicate Hamilton
merchants in this scheme to buy onions for nothing.
Some persons again attribute the whole of the evil
complained of to the, planting of the white onion,
which they assert ruins the sale of the red onion.
Those who hold these views make this explanation
of it. ,They contend that the white onion, is not as
good an onion as the red onion. That the growers
of the white onion by improper representations in-
duce the New York people early in the season when

onions are scarce to pay them an enormous and
most unreasonable price for half ripe white onions.
That later in the season when a good article, to wit,
the red onion reachLs ,he market, that all of the
purchasers of the white onions have become so dis- i
gusted with their first purchases that they can't be
induced to purchase a box of red onions except at
the most reduced prices. It is said that this trick
is repeated on the New Yorkers by the growers of
white onions every year. Others attribute the
whole evil to the habit of some in putting up and
shipping a bad article of onion; of putting in too
many stalks and too much trash of all kinds. In fact
almost every other man has a theory of his own
which in his judgment fully accounts for the evil
especially when prices are low. In 1880 when in
the middle of the onion gathering season the prices
went up from three shillings to six or seven shillings
per box every man abandoned his theories for the
time being. It is only during the prevalence of low
prices that these impraticable theories prevail.
Every man knows that trado will find it's level;
and that speculators in produce are not con-
trolled in their operations by the interest of
the grower, but by what is most profitable to them-
selves. Capitalists always have and always will
form monopolies disregarding the murmurs and com-
plaints of the people.. Suppose, however, that all of
these things are true in whole or in part ; then what
is the remedy? History furnishes no instance in
which an appeal to the moral sense of a man ever
changed his plans for turning the hard earnings of'
the poor to his. own account. The story of the
n,,mptinfnts of the honest labourer is as old as the
hills: and he had as welt" sing psalms to a dead
hose as to plead his grievances at the gates of the
monopolist and speculator. What, pray tell us,
does a New York speculator care for the complaints
of a Bermuda onion grower ? Or what moral in-
fluence can you bring to bear upon a thrifty well to
do Hamilton merchant to induce him to regard more
the welfare of the man with onions than his own
financial interest. As we have just remarked it is
preposterous and absurd to talk about two thousand
acres of land planted in onions, tomatoes, and pota-
toes overstocking the world. (Twice that number of
acres would not amount to a row of pin if the mar-
kets of the world were made accessible for our pro-
duce). Some persons, however,.-regard New York
is the market for the world, and when New York
is over-furnished that the world is over-furnished.
Such reasoning is too absurd to be answered. If
we would regard the prosperity of these Islands let
us rather increase the acreage in cultivation every
year, and raise the standard of improved cultivation
higher and higher with each succeeding crop. We
admit that under the present system of disposing of
the crop that the product is already too large. Al-
though Bermuda has the most blest climate on earth,
with no winter frosts to blight her slopes and vales
of eternal green, and no scorching suns to parch and
wither her summer crops; yet there is but one sea-
son in the year adapted to the production of the
onion. The effect of this is to throw her entire
crop upon the market within the space of a few
weeks. The crop of Bermuda is essentially perish-
able in its nature, and no one city could purchase
the whole crop, except at a very low price, without
loss. The remedy therefore and the only remedy is
to send a portion of the crop to some other market.
.The question arises how is this to be done? The
answer is at hand. Let the subsidies which the
line of steamers from New York to this place now
receive remain as at present with one modification,
to wit: That the auxiliary steamer which com-
mences to run in April and quits in June, shall run
to Charleston, South Carolina, instead of to New
York In addition to this, let a reasonable subsidy
be given to two or three sailing vessels to make re-
gular trips to Baltimore during the crop season.
The subsidies should be sufficient to save the sailing
vessels from loss. In this way three regular mar-
kets would be opened for the sale of Bermuda pro-
duce. Some other city, New Orleans, for instance,
might be substituted for one of those named. It
would hardly be expected that such a change would
prove satisfactory in every particular the first sea-
son. But it would not leave the growers of Ber-
muda produce to the mercy of New York specula-
tors. It would give them the choice of three mar-
kets for the sale of their produce. Instead then of
contrivances by the New York merchants to reduce
the prices of produce in first hands, those keen
sighted traders would leave nothing undone to en-
able them to outbid the Charleston and Baltimore
markets for our produce.
The moment that they found these rival cities in
the market for the purchase of our produce the
question with them would no longer be, how much
can we make out of the produce grower, but how
much can we give for his produce. Let the busi-
ness of the Agents to be sent abroad, as provided in
the resolutions of the meeting of the 15th of Sep-
tember, be to'arrange with the Corporate authorities
of the cities selected for free wharfage and other
shipping facilities in the interest of Bermuda. At
present many of the onions shipped to New York
are transported to the distant South, and sold at
high prices. The delay and expense of this re-ship-
ment from New York to the remote southern mar-
kets take away all of the speculators' profits, unless
he can purchase the onions at the lowest, possible
price If Bermuda can afford to pay the present
subsidies for jamming the whole of her produce upon
a single wharf in -he shortest possible time; surely
she can pay na little more to widen her market and
thereby double the resources of the country. Were
such a plan a.'" 'ted by the legislative authority of
the Island, not a single tiller of the soil would com-
plain of the expense. It would furthermore close
the mouth of every ch'-"'-d fault finder about New
York rascality; and it would make Bermudians feel
that they were not at the mercy of a single city for
the sale of their crops.
If England had been content with the trade of a
single market as purchaser of her fabrics, she would
to-day be as poor as Mexico or Guatemala. Her
wise policy in looking out and securing new cus-
tomers for her great manufacturing interest has
made her the richest nation in the world. It is said
that there is more wealth concentrated in London
alone than would purchase the whole of the United
States of America at its present appraised value.
The secret of England's vast wealth and power, lies
in her ready outlook for the trade of her people.
By her wise system of commerce every mart in the
world is made to contribute to the profit of English
labour. If the little Island of Bermuda could at
this time in her hour of extreme peril and danger,
learn a lesson of wisdom from the mother country

and follow her example in this particular, another
season would hardly find her last hope (the coming
crop) at the mercy of New York speculators.
In closing this communication the writer be-speaks
for himself the kindly consideration of all who may
happen to read it. Although he is a farmer himself
working daily with his own hands for a support;
yet he has listened with impatience to the many
charges of fraud and rascality imputed not only to
New York merchants but to Hamilton merchants
also. If the products of Bermuda are so great as to
overstock the markets of NeAr York, surely the au-
thorities which rule and control her financial welfare
should provide for her more than one market for the
sale of her produce. The land owner is as deeply
concerned in this question of Bermuda's redemption
from Financial ruin as the crop grower himself. If
there is no change for the better t a rent of lands
must soon become nominal. Tha handed propri-
etors should come to the front and see to it that the
future industry of Bermuda shall be rewarded with
fair prices for its labour.
The foregoing suggestions have not been made
with the expectation that they would be followed by
any one. For scarcely can you find,.tWo persons
who will think alike when a realedy is to be sup-
plied to the sick and dying. The cure for our fiana-
f. *.

cial disorder is in the hands of many doctors, none
of whom will be satisfied to try any other remedied
until their own nostrums have been taken by tho
sick patient.
All that the writer anticipates is that some one
thought of his may prove beneficial to the public
interest. In the multitude of counsel there is wis-
dom, and when wiser and more experienced thinkers
come to grapple with this question a plan no doubt
will be adopted which will infinitely improve the
present condition of things. And then with a long
pull, and a strong pull, and a pull altogether, the
lessior and lessee and the labourer, may all see the
dawn of a brighter day, with fresh hopes for the fu-
ture prosperity of these Islands,
September 24, 1881.

To the Editor of Royal Gazette.
After the many well written articles in the last
Cazdefe in reference to the Agricultural meeting on
the 15th inst., it might seem presumption on my
part even to Venture an opinion in opposition to
those so generally expressed, and it was only that I
did not wish to say a word in opposition to the
course proposed by the jiromoters of the meeting;
or I should have ventilated my ideas at the time;
but Mr. Editor, with your kind permission, I will
now suggest that the plan proposed is too temporary,
nothing less than the London market will afford the
necessary relief. Look back a few years,-our sole
market the West Indies, supplied with a few bas-
kets of onions, and compare it now with New York,
our natural market, requiring and receiving 2 to
250,000 boxes at paying prices. But as we can and
ought to increase our agricultural productions to
the utmost limit, and will do so faster than the
United States markets will demand it to our ad-
vantage, it behooves us to look ahead when our crop
will reach 5 to 800,000 boxes, which means London
with its teeming population of 4,000,000, as well as
populous surroundings. When we remember how
many thousands of Pounds have been spent in induc-.
ing shipments to and the development of the New.
York market, we must not begrudge a few hundred
of the six or eight thousand Pounds, now lying idle
in our Treasury, should it be required to open this
immense market for our constantly increasing
crop, I am sure if we can divert 50 to 100,000
Boxes of Onions to London in the early part of the
season, even if they only sell for 3/- to 5/- per Box
the remainder shipped to other places will sell for
25 to 50 per cent. more; but with this distinct re-
servation, that unless the crop is honestly and pro-
perly packed we can only expect disappointment in-
stead of success; and without our Planters will all
unite and do their full duty an Inspector must be
appointed to compel the delinquents to do what is
right and honest. I also have every reason to be-
lieve that steamers to make the trip to London in
12 to 15 days carrying 15 to 20,000 Boxes of Onions,
can be chartered at a rate not to exceed 1/3 per
Box; these vessels can bring out coal and other
freights at low rates, and save our people something
that way; and then if we once open the London
market it is a permanent relief; we must com-
mence shipping by the middle of April and send
20,000 Boxes weekly for five or six weeks, and I am
sure the result will be advantageous to all. It must
be clear to every one that if we force 1 or 200,000
Boxes more on the New York market than it re-
quires, a ruinous decline in price must take place;
but if we provide tonnage at the same time for the
London market each farmer will be willing to send
a portion of his crop there, so as to enhance the
value of the balance; and if a full cargo for these
steamers can be guaranteed with prompt despatchb,
the freight will probably not exceed one shilling
per box, the charges will also be about the same;
the additional freight and dock charges being offset
by the U. S. duty, and if our people will only give
the London market anything like the chance given
to that of New York to develop it, they will never
regret commencing direct shipments to our Nation's

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
is a medicine that no household should be without.

For the first time in my life I am Induced to
give a testimonial. Noticing In some paper an
advertisement of Dr. Scott's Electric HairBrush,
I sent $3.00 for one and find It indeed a remark-
able brush. My wife has for years suffered with
headaches. The brush cures them at once.
Several friends have used it for headaches, and
It has never failed. My wife was also getting pre-
maturely bald, but the brush has entirely stopped
the falling hair and started a new growth. Iuse
It to remove dandruff, and it works like a charm.
Five times the cost would not buy my brush if I
could not replace it. To-day I bought of
McAlmont, Druggist of this place, two brushes to
send to friends who have tried mine and requested
me to buy for them. Col. Ponder, Mayor of Wal-
nut Ridge, was attacked by a severe case of sick
headache while at my house. He was very sick.
My wife proposed to try the brush, which he finally
consented to do, with no faith' In it, however. In
three minutes he said he never felt better in his
life, and directed me to send him a brush. I have
authorized McAlmont,the druggist, to use my name

Abstract of the .Proceedings of the Honorable
House of Assembly.
Friday, 23rd September.-The House resumed in
Committee the consideration of the proposed Mes-
sage to His Honor the Acting Governor with finan-
cial abstracts, &c.
Mr. Harvey in the Chair.
The Speaker moved to make several verbal a-
mendments to the proposed address to the Secre-
tary of State for the Colonies-which was agreed
to and made.
The Speaker's substituted Preamble to the Ad-
dress as amended, was affirmed; as follows:-
To the Right'Honorable the EARL or KIMBERTEY,
Her Majesty's principal Secretary of State for the
Colonies :-
The House of Assembly of Bermuda, having had
under consideration the Reports of the Receiver
General on the Financial matters of this Colony for
the years ended March 31st, 1878, 1879, 1880, and
1881, which Reports were transmitted to the House
by His Excellency Sir Robert Michael Laffan, K.
C.M.G., R.E., the present Governor, deems it ex-
pedient to forward for the inspection of your Lord-
ship a brief statement of the Financial System
which has obtained here for a long series of years
with satisfactory results.
The financial year ends on the 31st March, and to
that date the Treasury Books are balanced. On
that balance the Estimate is based, and the Supply
Bill framed and passed before the 30th June. Such
portion only of the Treasury Liabilities as may be
required during the current year are included in
the Estimate. This mode of dealing with those lia-
bilities has been approved by the Governor in his
despatch to your Lordship, No. 79, Para. 51 & 52,
The Receiver General has never been authorized
by any Act of the Colony to retain in the Treasury
an amount sufficient to defray the whole of the lia-
bilities nor 2000 to meet contingencies; his duty
as regarded by the House of Assemby is to receive
the Revenue, and pay it away as directed by the
The years alluded to in the Receiver General's
Reports have been no exception to the rule.

Ms. EMDTon,-I am glad to see that so many
persons have taken an interest in the object of that
meeting as to fill your columns with correspon-
dence, for after all it is through the Press that the
results of such meetings do the most good, for many
individuals who know a few things, are, like my-
self, bashful, and have not the nerve and courage to
stand up in a public meeting and give their views
and opinions, lest they may wound the feelings of
some kind friend, or pinch the toes of some frau-
dulent foe, while in cog. they can be very bold. It
was thought when the "Vegetable Marking Bill"
passed the Legislature that it would be a panacea
for all "the ills that Onions and Potatoes are heir
to," but alas, what a disappointment, for they have
been growing worse and worse ever since, and I
would like to ask how many rogues have been
caught by it, and how many been punished by the
Merchants refusing to buy from them ? I'll war-
rant not one, and that the marking has often
served as a cloak and a passport for inferior stufl!
I have always held and still hold, that the remedy
must begin with the Merchants and brokers here
and be carried on by them till the cure is effected
through concerted action and good faith, vizt.:
1st. Stop the inflation by refusing credit to the
unworthy, and to those honest men who have not
the means, even if they had all the practical know-
ledge of farming profitably.
2. Then unite upon a system of private inspec-
tion or examination of a few packages of each lot
purchased or shipped; and when this shall have
been established, the ignorant and the fraudulent
will begin to diminish. No Government Inspector
is needed. The honest packer wont need to be ex-
amined often if at all, and this system will soon
sift them out.

3. Then many will give up farming, and earn a
living by faithful labor, and the Mechanics will
stick to their trades.
4. To send Agents abroad to scan the distant
markets in the United States is simply suicidal for
the business!
6. To fight the New York Market-men, who are
also the Brokers, you might as well attempt to
fight Niagara!
6. Send them good articles, properly packed, and
such as they can with safety send over the country
by steam, to arrive at their destinations in a fit
state for consumption, and you will get fair prices ac-
cording to supply and demand.
7. Weekly Steamers are quite sufficient.
8. Insist upon lower rates of freight.
Yours truly,

For the Royal Gazette.
At the Public meeting at the Town Hall Mr.
Cox said he inspected Produce for his own pocket's
sake," Mr. T. F. J. Tucker's argument, to the same

efest, was unanswerable! Mr. Conyer's paper de-
served this special mention, that it proved that the
average value of Tomatoes was nearly double dur-
ing the first five years after 1870 or years while in-
spection by purchasers was close and rigid, than was

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR SIR,-Doubtless many of your readers are
familiar with the story of the "King of France
who marched his 40,000 men up the hill, and then
marched them down again." He had his motives
for such an historical exploit, and posterity has duly
honored his memory. The writer happened to be
amongst the number of those who marched" to the
Town Hall" on Thursday, 15th inst., and like many
others went with the expectation of witnessing the
accomplishment of some plan, whereby those most
directly interested, via.: the Farmers, who have suf-
fered from the "disastrous results" of the past sea-
son, would have felt their hopes revived, and the
silver lining" of the dark cloud" more discern-
ible. But we marched" there, and we "marched
back again," and the general feeling of the majority
was, that the Leaders" had failed to grasp the situ-
ation, and had offered but bare husks of generalities,
instead of the solid grain of plain unvarnished truth,
which would have gone far and have solved the
great question of the hour.
Why should it be that what is the great blessing
to other agricultural countries, viz.,: large crops,"
should prove the worst of evils to Bermuda ? Why
cannot the Bermuda farmers find sale for all the
Produce they can raise, at remunerative prices ?
When we compare the quantities of Potatoes, To-
matoes and Onions raised in Bermuda, with the
quantities raised elsewhere, we can the better under.
stand that although the quantity may seem large to
the uninformed and those who have never travelled,
yet the whole of the productions of Bermuda make
but a small item in the vast quantities consumed by
the people of the seaboard and inland cities of the
United States, to say nothing of the smaller towns,
villages, &c. It is not the province of the man
of the hour" to talk of restriction and repression,
neither can a free people understand aught of such
sentiments. The motto of every farmer should be to
endeavor to raise better and larger crops every sea-
son, and they can be encouraged with the assurance
that. could they find the means of transporting twice
and thrice as much as was raised in Bermuda this pres-
ent year, to the Markets of the United States without
the delay and impediments which rt present exist,
they would find ready sale at fair prices to compen-
sate them for their labor.
It is well enough and proper that due considera-
tion should be given to the sor ing and packing of
produce, but the evils from which the Farmers of
Bermuda are suffering arise from "packing" of a
different nature. It will always happen that some
more or less unprincipled men will pack anything or
everything, but this will only tend to making the
honest packers still more particular, and as example
is contagious, even the worst inclined will in time be
brought to realize that "honesty is the best policy,"
and there are a great many who are honest because
of this saving clause.
After all that was anticipated by those present the
sum total of the labors of the leaders of the meeting
amounted to the submitting of three resolutions, the
first proposing to dispose of a portion of our Produce
in some of the large towns and cities of the U. S, of
The second, to appoint one or two men of expe-
rience and integrity" to visit said places, and the
third, to provide means for the travelling expenses
of such parties.
That the United States consume about ninety per
cent. of our productions is we believe somewhat
near the mark, and to imagine that the cities of New
York, Boston, or Phi!adelphia, consume in them-
selves all the Produce imported thence, is to im-
agine that they likewise consume all the Provisions,
Flour, Dry Goods, &c imported.
These cities are mainly distributing reservoirs,
and there is hardly a town or village worthy of the
name within railroad or steamboat connexion of
them, north of Virginia and east of the Mississippi,
where Bermuda Produce has not at some time or
the other found its way, and when we consider that
their leading Produce Dealers have for years con-
trolled the trade to such places, the superfluous na-
ture of the labor of such travelling Agents will be
apparent without further argument.
What Ihe Bermuda Farmers want (and traduce
them as much as one may, we venture to assert that
they are as straightforward and honest as any class
of men here or elsewhere, even if some few do pack
stalk onions" and old boots," and small potatoes,
by the aid of a lard kettle," and "nail large ones to
the openings in the sides of the barrels,") what they
want, is the free and untrammelled right to dispose of
their productions as they may deem best, either in
selling or shipping to whomsoever they may choose, and
the removal of all obstructions to such ends, for it is a
fact patent to all, that the men by whose means the
Produce trade of Bermuda has risen to such dimen-
sions, and for whose comfort and convenience the
sheds were eree ed, and for whose fur her welfare a
large subsidy is paid to a Steamship Company, are
the last to derive any benefit therefrom, the bulk of
the carrying trade during the season being monopo-
lized by a few dealers in Washirgton market,
through their Agent s in Hamilton, and the Farmers,
who pay for all this accommodation, are entirely at
the mercy o( the said Dealers, and wilt continue so
to be until they arise in their might, assert their
power, and by one swoop strike this hydra-headed
monster of tyrannical monopoly out of existence,
and by presenting aso'id phalanx to their opponents,
secure for themselves that enjoyment of iheir lawful
rights from which they have been so long debarred,
and then they will hear no more of these meaningless
sophistries, which happily deceive no one but the
innocent authors, and for markets they will have the
whole world, for Agents any respectable business
house to whom they may choose to ship, for Buyers
those who will give the highest prices, and for trans-
port, steamers loading under equal privileges from
any of the sheds in town.

Such results, however, cannot be accomplished in-
stantaneously, nor without united consolidated effort,
and it should be the aim and object of every farmer
to so study his own and the general welfare, that by
unity, harmony, and co-operation, he may the more
early and surely bring such influences to bear as
shall tend to the consummation of such desirable re-
sults, and the meeting of 15 h inst. will have done
this good, if it leads to further meetings where may
be eventuated such action as will shew to all that
the farmers are determined to strike at the root of
the trouble, and under brighter auspices, begia the
work of crop raising for 1882, and by industry, fru-
gality, and honesty, achieve that prosperity which
they worthily merit.
