ROYAL ENGINEER THEATRICALS.
The 20th Company Amateurs gave three per-
formances on Saturday 24th, Monday 26th, and
Tuesday, 27th September, at the Theatre Royal,
Prospect. The pieces selected were a farce by J.
Courtney. Esqr., entitled the "Two Polts," and the
tropical Drama, entitled "British Born." The
Farce preceded the Drama, and was played very
briskly throughout. Sergeant E. Bramble and
Corpl. W. Musgrove sustaining the parts of the Bro.
thers Polt, kept the audience laughing all through
the piece. The curtain then rose for the Drama,
which contained a Prologue and 3 Acts. The Dra-
ma on Saturday was admirably acted by all who
took part in it, but, owing to the unavoidable ab-
sence of one of the company, on Monday and Tues-
day, one of the principal parts-that of Laban
Brood-was, at a few hours notice, entrusted to the
care of Bandsman A. Soutter, R. I. Rifles, and had
he been thoroughly acquainted with the part, would
have been equal to the original character. The
part of John Hope (W. Butters) father of Mary
Hope, was well acted, the part evidently, having
been well studied. The part of Laban Brood-on


Saturday night-was cleverly acted by H. Evans,
who made an excellent villian all through the piece.
George Seymour. Brood's head clerk, was ably sus-
tained, and effectively acted by. Corpl. W. Mus-
grove. Captain Jabez Dolman (J. Dougall), was
very amusing, and as Judule, the head of the mi-
ners, is worthy of special commendation. The part
of Fred s-gles wag ably sustained by Sergeant E.
Brambl he, o is an excellent Comedian. His" office
toilet" and concertina waistcoat," causing roars of
laughter. The part of Mary Hope (R. Gibson) was
very effectively played, especially in the prison
scene. The part of Nancy Treat (W. Morgan) was
played very efficiently,: it being an important and
very pleasing feature of the entertainment. The
soldiers and miners-although only minor parts-
were vell up in their business, the groupings and
tableaux being done with great precision. The en-
tertainment. was -enlivened by the strains of the
splendid string band of the Royal Irish Rifles, con-
duotedaby Mr. U..Browan,-Bandmaster, who also ar-
rang the incidental music for the Drama. We
hope soon to see this company on the boards again,
as their acting was much appreciated by a large
and attentive audience.

The Rev. John Hamphill, of San Francisco, is
being tried for heresy in upholding the views of
Mrs. Sarah B. Cooper, a cousin of Robert C. In-
gersoll, who conducts three kindergarten schools in

Expression of Sympathy-Legislative Coun-
cil of Bermuda-Death of President
Garfield.
The following is a copy of an expression of sym-
pathy on the part of the Members of the Legisla-
tive Council of Bermuda with the people of the
United States respecting the sad death of the late
President Garfield, which has been transmitted by
His Honor the Acting Governor to the Secretary of
the British Legation at Washington:-
We, the undersigned Members of the Legislative
Council of Bermuda, desire to record our sense of
the great loss which the people of the United States
have sustained in the death, by the hand of an as-
sassin, of the late President James A. Garfield, and
to express our sympathy with the widowed Lady
who so faithfully watched over her husband in his
last painful and protracted illness.

Arrival of the English Hall of the
16th ultimo.
The Royal Mail Steamer Alpha, Captain Crow-
ell, arrived at St. Georges on thb afternoon of
Thursday last, bringing the English Mail of the
16th ultimo.
We are indebted to Captain Crowoll and other
friends for Halifax papers of the 26th ultimo. This
mail reached Halifax via Ramouske, on the 25th.
THE DOMINION EXHIBITION AT HALIFAX.-The
Exhibition or Industrial Show was opened at Hali-
fax on the 23rd ultimo, and although another week
would be required to complete the building, still
there was a goodly show of exhibits and a very
large attendance of persons from the City and sub-
urbs-trains were arriving full of exhibitors and
sightseers and there was every probability of its
proving a grand success.
There will be a grand display of fireworks on
next Thursday at Halifax in connection with the
Dominion Exhibition, and to make the affair more
unique it is proposed to purchase the barque Try-
which recently put into that port disabled, and
bought for her iron ballast and copper fastenings,
and is to be burnt-for the purpose of making a
most brilliant and rare addition to the programme
of a burning ship.
A COTTON FACTORY IN THE CITY OF HALIFAX.-
The "Caldwell Property," situated at the corner
of Kempt Road and Young Street has been se-
lected for the purposA of the cotton factory: it
contains 281 acres, and was obtained at a cost of
$16,000. This site is thought to be most eligible.
The buildings are to be of brick and the main
building will be 360 feet long and 74 wide and
with the wings, one at each end, will give a front-
age of 424 feet. Two millions and a half of bricks
will be required to construct the building.
The Corporation of Halifax have promised the
projected Dry Dock in that city $10,000 a year for
20 years, and exemption from taxation. This is
done to attract shipping to the port and give em-
ployment to their ship carpenters, caulkers, &c.

at the Town Hall, as I cannot but think that the
soundness and practicability of them would have
commended them to all present.
It is not, however,' yet too late to do something,
and if another meeting could be convened, I feel
sure that some course could be adopted far more
feasible than that which was carried unanimously
at the last meeting. It is almost impossible in a
large meeting which assembles without any settled
plan of action to do anything really practical. By
far the best course to have taken in my opinion
would have been to appoint a Committee of some
of the best known Merchants and Planters present,
to receive suggestions and submit a proposal to a
subsequent meeting which could then have been
fully discussed, and I feel sure the result would
have been far more satisfactory to all concerned.
In spite of the trouble taken by the promoters of
the meeting, it must be generally admitted that it
has failed to suggest even a plausible remedy for the
commercial ruin which is threatening the Island.
I sincerely trust that the facts and arguments in
"Devonshire's" letter will carry conviction to the
minds of so many of our farmers that they will not
rest satisfied until his suggestions are adopted.
Probably a Petition to the Legislature to amend the
existing Act regulating Steam Communication
with New York would be necessary as a first step,
and so many Members of the House of Assembly
are deeply interested in farming that any scheme
which suggested a practical solution of the present
difficulty would be sure to receive a favorable con-
sideration. Hundreds of signatures could, I am
sure, be obtained to such a Petition without difficul-
ty, and I suggest to "Devonshire" that he should
start it himself or influence some of his friends to
do so.

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE.


THE BRITIsH FtAG:-The Boston Post says:-
The British flag waved over the President's cottage
at Long Branch. The Cottage was owned by an
Englishman, but as he was kind enough to offer it
to the President, free of charge, let us not growl
because the red cross of St. George disputes title
with the stars and stripes. The two greatest na-
tion of the world prayed earnestly for the Presi-
dent's recovery, and the flags of the two waved
over his head. It was something to be proud of,
not to resent.
THu "TIMES" ON SUSPOCTS.-LONDON, Sept. 19.
-The Times says: "It would be well if the mem-
bers of imprisoned suspects were increased by some
Irish-Americans who, not out of patriotism, but
spite against everything English, have been at no
pains to conceal their advocacy of armed insurrec-
tion. If their are soldiers and Coercion Acts in
Ireland the English people deplore such means of
government, but it is the attitude of a section of
the Irish people themselves under unscrupulous
leaders, which has rendered those things neces-
sary."
President Arthur has issued a Proelamption con.
evening the Senate in extra Session for October 10.
The total amount of Mrs. Garfield's fund on the
23rd September was $272,789 64 cents.
Monday, 26th ultimo, the day appointed for Pre-
sident Garfield's funeral, has been designated by
President Arthur as a day of fasting, humiliation
and prayer. No other business is to be transacted.
Members of the Cabinet are requested to retain
their respective positions.
A memorial window to President Garfield is to
be placed in the Chapel of Williams' College, Wil-
liamstown, Mass., of which Garfield was a graduate,
by Cyrus W. Field.

THE WBATH, THE PRESENT OF QUEEN VICTORIA
was the only floral decoration that was allowed to
remain on the Casket containing the remains of
the late President Garfield, on its departure from
Washington, the others having been removed by
request of Mrs. Garfield, to be sent to her home at
Mentor. It had been placed upon the head of the
coffin when the lid was closed and which remained
there when the coffin was borne to the hearse and
will be upon it till the remains are buried. This
touching tribute of Queen Victoria greatly moved
Mrs. Garfield, as only a woman can feel woman's
sympathy at the time of her greatest earthly sor-
row.
The 38 ton gun, which we alluded to in our last
as being put on board a barge at the Royal Naval
Yard for transportation, has been safely landed at
Fort Cunningham Pier, St. George's. It will, doubt-
less, be soon placed in its intended position at Fort
Cunningham. Another gun of similar size was
forwarded from the Naval Yard to St. Catherine,

CATARRH CURED.
Dman Sza,-I have used your INDIAN BLOOD
S YRUP with great satisfaction and relief. I have
been afflicted with catarrh 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
circulation and acting on the diseased matter in my
stomach, caused by the droppings of the catarrh
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
invaluable remedy.
Respectfully yours,
J. H. SMALLWOOD,
No. 319 West 10th st., New York City.
RHEUMATISM AND KIDNEY COMPLAINT.
SIB,-I give my testimony with pleasure to the
beneficial results of your BLOOD PURIFIER; my
kidneys were out of order, and the result was rheu-
matism in my right knee, joint swollen twice the
size of natural and very painful, a bottle of the largt
size made a perfect cure. I will also say my diges.
tion has improved so that I can eat anything within
reach.

SICK HEADACHE AND DYSPEPSIA.
No. 151 PERRY.ST., NEW YORK CITY.
DEAR SIR,-Your justly celebrated INDIAN
BLOOD SYRUP has entirely cured me of Sick .

It also cured my child of Scarlet Fever, and my
wife of Female complaints.

Isaac Dahlman, Bull's Head, 24th st., (of Dahl.

Henry Dahlman, of the same firm, cured of Sore
Throat and Indigestion, after having been treated
by physicians without beneficial effect.
CONSTIPATION WITH HEADACHE.
No. 99 WEsT HouSTON-ST., CITY.
Si,-Your INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP has cured
me entirely of the distress in my head, and relieved
every difficulty of my bowels. I must say that it
is the best medicine that any person can take for
sick headache.
ALICE REED.
DYSPEPSIA.
DEcA SzI,-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 food-thereby relieving me of those distress-
Ing pains experienced by dyspeptics after eating--
and although it at first caused occasional dizziness*
it quickly disappeared on my continuing its use
My digestion is now almost perfect, and I feel great-
y benefited.
Yours, WM. A. PIERMAN,
No. 333 West 32nd at., New York City.
NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 1880*
C. Johnson, M.D.,
zA R SiI,-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 a'tacks of the most
acute nature for over 5 yea n. 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.
P. YOUNG,

BERMUDA, June 28th, 1880.
Dz&A Sta,--This is to certify that I have found
more good in yoir INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP than
any Medicine that I have ever taken for Dyspepsia
and Indigestion. I would advise all that suffer from
it to try DR. CLARK JOHNSON'S INDIAN
BLOOD SYRUP.

The Late President.

LYING IN STATE IN CLEYBVAND.-TaN IuNxzAL
OREMxONIx5 TO-DAT.
Ar.TooNA, Pa., Sept. 24.-The Officers who sc-
companied the funeral train report continuous de-
monstration all along the line. At the large towns
great numbers of people were assembled, and at
the residences between the stations lights were dis-
played in the hands of their occupants. At Altoona
the number of people that assembled at the station
is estimated at 10,000. At Lewiston the track was
strewn with flowers. When the train pulled into
the Union Depot at Pittsburg at 5.40 this morning
5,000 people had assembled. No demonstration was
made saving the tolling of bells and firing of
minute guns.
Crv.vz.AND, Sept. 25.-The remains of the late
President which arrived yesterday afternoon from
Washington, are now lying in state in Monumental
Park awaiting consignment to their final resting
place to-morrow. Yesterday the streets began to
be thronged very early. People poured into the
City by every avenue of approach, and all railways
ran every available car to accommodate the unex-
ampled rush toward Cleveland. Monumental Park
where the body of the late President lies in state
of course was the centre of attraction. People
were permitted to enter the Park from the West
and pass through the pavillion three or four abreast
with uncovered heads, look at casket and decora-
tions and then proceed beyond the Park. At dark
electric and calcium lights illuminated the scene;
and the people were allowed to go through all night.
The line of people waiting turn to enter the Park
stretched westward about half a mile. Perfect order
prevailed, everybody seeming to be imbued with
the sense of the solemnity of the occasion. Hundreds
wept as they gazed upon the casket. The coffin was
not opened, it being Mrs. Garfield's wish that the
face be not exposed, on account of its unnatural
appearance, but visitors instead looked at the fea.
tures of the dead as depicted in portrait placed just
above I lie head. At five o'clock a shower came up
but had no perceptible effect in diminishing thi
crowd. It is considered that Cleveland, on Mon.
day, will have the largest display of civic societies
and military organizations ever seen in this coun
try.
CLEVELAND, Sept. 25.-The rain which comment
ced falling about 5 p.m. continued for about hal
an hour. Just before the rain ceased an unusually
bright rainbow became visible, its perfect line
being unbroken. The fact that the rainbow appear
ed while the body of President Garfield lay in stat
at Washington and again to-day has a tendency t
create an impression that it is an omen of good
The city wears the same brilliant appearance to
night as it did last night. Two powerful calcium
lights and over one hundred gas lamps illuminat
the park. All night the long line of people passing
through the pavilion was unbroken. About six o
the members of Garfield's regiment marched in to
day to the pavilion, and deposited the regiment
colours at the foot of the casket. About the sam
time the Member of the Grand Army of Cum
berland marched through the pavilion in a body
Extra trains bearing the members of the Cabine
will leave to-morrow evening at six o'clock fo
Washington. All Cabinet officers except Blainq
who expects to go to Maine for a week, will go o
It. The :present arrangement regarding Mr
Garfield and the rest of the family is that all in
eluding the President's mother will attend th
ceremonies to-morrow. Tuesday morning the
will all leave for Mentor in President's Robert
car.
BosTON, Sept. 25.-In nearly all the churches
throughout the country to-day special reference
the death of President Garfield was made an
touching eulogies pronounced.
CLEVELAND, Sept. 26.-After the ceremonies
the park to-morrow the casket and dais will be pi
on the funeral car and conveyed to Lakeview cemi
tery to the vault where the body will be deposited
In front of the vault four black poles 30 feet hig
suspend a canopy of black cloth 15 by 40 fee
drooping down 8 feet on all sides looped up wil
heavy black cord and tassels. All is black. Ti
passageway and floor of the vault is carpeted. Un
derneath the canopy and the driveway are strew
with evergreens, and upon them a thick layer
cut flowers. The interior of the vault is drape
with deep black, and cut flowers, contributed I
lady teachers in the public schools, are strew
everywhere. In the opening of the centre arch wi
hang a cross 16 feet In length and 34 in widt
trimmed with evergreens. Across the summit
the centre arch four simple but most eloque
words greet the eye: Come Home to Rest." Upo
the two centre columns are two other sentence
via.: Lay him to sleep whom we have learned
love," and, lay him to sleep whom we have learn
to trust." Suspended in the centre of the arch Is
large handsome letter "G" worked in evergre
upon a frame of wood. On the east side may
seen the words: "He lies in all our hearts, dea
cannot touch him there." Upon the west side
the inscription: Love was the source, duty t
law of his life." The whole structure is beautiful
decorated with emblems of love. Mrs. Garfle
visited the cemetery on Sunday, in company wi
the Hon. J. H. Wade. The visit resulted in
confirmation of the site previously fixed upon
the committee. Mrs. Garfield expressed her sati
faction at the choice and her genuine admirati
of the splendid scenery. The bier upon which t
casket will lie is two and a half feet high, and fo
wide: sides coveted with black velvet, and hea
poll looped with silver fringe thrown over alL M
mortal services have been held to-day through
p Ohio, and during the hours of the obsequies t
morrow special funeral ceremonies will take pie
in nearly every city, town and village in the Sta
The services begin at half past ten.

MADzID, Sept.25.-The Spanish Court will

LoymoN, Sept. 25.-St. Paul's Cathedral was a
solutely crammed this afternoon, it having be
announced that the services would relate to t
death of President Garfield. The majority of t
congregation were in mourning. When the De
March in Saul" was played, the whole congreg
lion, numbering many thousands, rose and r
gained standing amidst profound silence, all sho
lag grief and many weeping. Canon Stub
preahobed, and specially referred to the cruel ma
ner of Preaident Garfield's death. He extoll
his life and virtues, and expressed sympathy h
the sorrowing American nation at both morni
and evening services. In Westminster Abbey i
forenes were made to the President's death. A

Gen. Garfield's death formed the subject of symp
thetoe allusion. At several Jewish synagogues,o
Saturday, his death was alluded to.
The N ow York Prue on. Prei Arthur A
dr ept. The ays
Nsaw Toa, Sept. 3.--The u m says P"


sident Arthur's first State paper is an admirable
document. His inaugural address is all that could
be desired in tone and temper, and, short as it is,
contains enough to bring relief to many a mind
which may have been filled with honest doubts as
to the new President's views and purposes. This
address will be well received and will, if possible,
intensify the universal disposition among Republi.
cans and many fair-minded Democrats to give the
President in his trying position their most cordial
good wishes and sincere support. The papers of
this country generally commend it.
The Times says of Arthur's maugural: The
sentiments he expressed were in keeping with the
feelings excited by the solemn events of the last few
days. He was chary of promises, but he gave his
reasons for faith that he would succeed in his ear-
nest endeavor to profit, and to see that the nation
shall profit, by the experience of his predecessor.
There have been misgivings that the accession of
President Arthur to the Presidential chair would
result sooner or later in a radical change in the
character of the Administration, but the people are
ready to cast their misgivings aside and give the
new President their confidence and support."
The World says: People will like the address
none the less inasmuch as it contains, with all its
modesty, the plain intimation of the resolute pur-
pose of its author to decide for himself how he shall
discharge the duties of an office the responsibilities of
which he cannot divide."
The Sun says:-" In his inaugural President Ar-
thur eulogizes his predecessor, by whose example he
hopes to profit, and finds proof of the strength of
popular government in his peaceful installation with-
out strain to the country.'

To the Editor of Royal Gazette.
DEAB Sxn,-The number of communications in
your last issue and the various ideas and opinions
i therein expressed, taken in connection with the
very full attendance at the Public Meeting, shows
perhaps more conclusively than words could con-
1 vey, how all important is the subject to the Public
* mind. Now I believe that no man (except he is
t mere clay) can read these ideas and hear these
, opinions without deriving some benefit, and with-
e out having his own thoughts and ideas set in mo-
- tion; and much good will surely be accomplished
s by ventilating the question by way of an exchange
- of ideas and arguments through the medium of the
Press and by occasional Public meetings. The
- question How to improve our prospects, for the
if coming season" is one of such importance that I
think one need no other apology for bringing it be-
y fore the Public and showing up as plainly as pos-
sible the defects in our present system and using
o his best endeavors to improve it. The ditterent
writers in last week's Gazette have each touched on
some important and vital points of (as one of them
' expresses it) the GREAT ONION. I will mention
m one or two which "took my eye." First, the unani-
e mity with which people agree as to The evil of
g packing a bad or inferior article; indeed people seem
g so unanimous on this poiut that one is led to won-
f der where all the bad stuff comes from; not from
a" the "native" element they say but from the Ish-
l maelites. These transient planters" are made to
e bear a large portion of the responsibility and per-
- haps with some justice, for as they often pay about
y. double the rent a native would pay, and as they
work day and night it is more than probable that
)r in some cases they pack a double quality as well as
e, double quantity of produce. But these are not
n alone to blame. The responsibility of packing ten
s* onions weighing 61 oz. (as mentioned in the Ga-
- zette during the past season) rests farther west than
"e "The Western Islands." The second point which
lY took my eye was the expenses, the charges attached
's to our produce, one writer showing how, on even
the apparently trifling tax for sheddage, and pass-
es ing through the sheds drenched with rain, the
to Corporation bagged the neat little sum of eight or
.d nine hundred pounds." Another writer shows how
that although the freight is ostensibly 60 cents per
at bbl. Tomatoes pay nearly double this sum. It has
ut also been said that "The idea of creating markets
e-. back of New York is suicidal" and would be ruin-
d. ous ;" now I fear this is only too true, for although
rh it would be well to introduce our produce into all
t, the principal cities of the United States, the plan
th proposed is more likely to create a spirit of rivalry
he and opposition, in which the producer would suffer
u. most. This is the legitimate trade of the New York
Vn market men and has always been jealously guarded
of by them and will continue to be. As an idea worthy
ed of very serious consideration I would suggest: -
by To withdraw the subsidy from the New York
n Steamers and let them have a monopoly of the
ill trade under certain stipulations, the first of which
b, should be that they should pay a sort of royalty
of for it: this some shrewd business men assert would
nt fetch several hundred pounds per year. Then offer
on a subsidy for a few years to assist in opening the
es, London market which I contend has never had a
to fair trial, let us have regular fortnightly or monthly
ed steamers during the crop season. By monthly I do
a not mean one that will take a a month to go and a
en month to come back, not one that will wait in some
be other port for a month and keep our produce packed
th and waiting for her for a month. With a good
Is steamer we could send our surplus crop of onions
he (all over 200,000 boxes which we might reasonably
[e suppose the New York market would absorb) and
Id also other vegetables, to the London market, and it
is almost certain that if they were good and ar-
a rived at the right time, they would meet a fair
y market and a trade would be built up. That the
idaea is worthy of a fair practical trial is the opinion
on of PLOUGH-BOY.

ur A Mayor Shot Dead while Robbing a Mill.-Kozo-
vy xo, lad, Sept. 21.-Dr. Henry C. Cole, Mayor of
[e- this city, was shot and killed last night at 10 o'-
ut clock by a Sheriff's posse. For years Cole has been
o- suspected of crooked ways, and he has been sha-
coe dowed by detectives for a long time. The Sheriff's
te. posse was watching the Spring Mills last night,
having had an intimation that the Doctor intend-
ed that night to rob the mill. He had an accom.
