address, stating the object of the meeting. Mr.
Thomas D. Hall then moved the resolutions in an
1 eloquent speech, which were seconded by Mr. Henry
Pellew, an ex-President, and Consul General Archi-
bald, also an ex-President. The meeting was large-
ly attended, and among the gentlemen present were
Messrs. Dale, Moulson, Cortis, Richardson, Mostyn,
Gordon, and many others.
The following resolutions were adopted:
Resolved, The St. George's Society of New Yprk,
whose members are Englishmen, or the descendants
of Englishmen, desire, on this occasion of great
gloom in the United States, to join in the universal
expressions of sympathy and condolence with the
countrymen and family of President Garfield on his
death. Like all who speak the English language,
we abhor assassination, and respect the constitu-
tional rulers under whom we live. We are there-
fore shocked at the violence, so cruel and wanton
in a land where the frequent ballots of the people
make and unmake rulers, by which the late Presi-
dent has been hastened prematurely to his death.
Resolved, The feeling of horror this violent death
occasioned is intensified by admiration and respect
for its victim. President Garfield is one of the men
who make the history of a country, and who in its
gallery of great names have a frame and panel dis-
tinctively to themselves. He was the type and ex-
pression of its best mater-1 n its highest develop-
ment. His tastes and habits were scholarly and
studious. In his political life his aim was high,
unselfish and dispassionate; he lifted himself above
the expedients and successes of the demagogue, and
the calamity which ended his life completed beyond
cavil or disappointment the excellent record of his
Resolved, The personal courage and fortitude of
President Garfield explain and justify the affection
in which his name and memory are held. The gal-
lantry which distinguished him during the war was
great, but the effect is dimmed by the rarer and
more remarkable courage he has shown during his
pains and sufferings of eighty days. The sick room
at the White House, the death chamber at Elberon,
were crowded with incidents of simple, unselfish
heroism, which touch the best part of humanity and
make its emotions very tender and pathetic.
Resolved, The interest felt and expressed among
all classes in England, the universal sorrow at his
death, and the tributes of sympathy which came
across the water, have seemed to us who live in the
atmosphere of the nation's grief, most appropriate
,and timely. The Queen's messages have been es-
pecially grateful, and in their informal directness
Must have brought consolation to the good and
Steadfast woman to whom they were addressed. Our
Sown respectful condolence, our deepest sympathy,
are tendered to Mrs. Garfield. She had her full
share in the heroism of her husband's sick room,
and when he died two brave hearts were parted.
We trust that time and the associations of a great
and good name will bring their consolations to her,
o and to the other members of her husband's family
Swho now mourn their loss.
9 Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions, signed
Sby the President and Secretary, be sent to Mrs.
The Mr. J. H. Markham Rae, whose appoint-
ment as Colonial Surveyor for these Islands was
e officially announced in the last "Royal Gazette,"
o is a Licentiate of Engineering of the University of

Some unfortunates interested in the races must
have highly displeased the Clerk of the Weather,
judging from the squalls of wind andrainwhich have
been prevailing for several days past. Had the
weather have proved favorable on the 5th instant,
beyond all doubt the sight would have been highly
gratifying to a very large number of spectators, as
our town was exceedingly lively on that day with
visitors from all parts of the Islands. Unfortun-
ately a strong breeze from the north-east, accom-
panied at intervals with heavy squalls, threw a
damper on the ardent interest manifested by all
who were interested in the races. Many of the
competing boats before the hour appointed for tIhe
race had the temerity to test the might of the aerial
fiends, but paid dearly for their audacity, some of
them had to ignominiously succomb and seek a bed
down on the "bottom of the vasty deep." The Stew-
ards held a meeting and postponed the races to Friday
the 7th.instant. The weather continuing unfavor-
able they were again postponed until Tuesday the

BERMUDA ROYAL GAZETTE. .
For the Royal Gazette.
ST. JOHN'S CHURCH, PEMBROKE.
The Church Wardens might have enlightened
the parishioners much more than they have done
respecting the proceedings at the meeting at the
Town Hall on 30th Sept., but as they have failed
to do so, it seems to be incumbent upon somebody
to do it for them, instead of allowing the matter to
rest where it is. Whenever a public body con-
ceives that their interests or their wishes are about
to be affected prejudicially, and are fully notified
of the cause, they will always come forward in force
voluntarily to arrest it; and their absence from a
public call for a discussion is presumptive evidence
of acquiescence. But when instead of spontaneous
movement, agency is developed to influence objec-
tions as is surmised, and admitted by some of the
parties in this case, I hold it to be an act of injus-
tice towards that body. I will now attempt an
epitome of the argument of the mover of the
"1 amendment," as well as what appears to me to
be a fair refutation of it.
1. He took exception to the phraseology of the
advertisement and notices as calculated to deceive,
tho' he admitted that it might not have been in-
2. That the proposed alterations in the Church
proceeded from a spirit of Ritualism, which he em-
phasized with great energy as his strong point.
3. That the expense was unnecessary, and in-
expedient, tho' the anticipated cost of about 100
was in hand.
4. That it affected the rights of certain pew
5. That it reduced the number of sittings in the
Chancel and confined them.
Now for the other side:-
1. The advertisement and the notices were ac-
cording to what the Law requires.
2. If placing the seats of the Chancel East and
West, and having them open, instead of closed
pews; and removing the Choir downstairs, be ri-
tualistic, the charge will apply equally to the ma-
jority of Episcopal Churches and Congregations in
The Chancel now has 12 box pews calculatated
to accommodate 6 sittings each, so that 72 persons
sit with their backs to the clergyman when officia-
ting there; and when, in accordance with the cus-
tom of our Church for centuries, they rise to hear
the Gospel and Creed read the better to listen there-
to by facing the Minister, the turning round of
that number is involved, and then the turning back,
which will be avoided by turning the seats.
3. His amendment "concurred in the erection
of a vestry," to cost 50 to 60, according to the
plan submitted, and also in "the repairs to
the old pews and floors" estimated about 10 to 15
thus adopting about .................. 75
While rejecting new Seats that would be more
durable, and better constructed, away from
the wall; preferring to keep the old Pews,
badly built against a rough wall: Also re-
jecting the renting of seats in the Western
Gallery (cleared of the organ and Sunday
scholars) that would have made up the differ-
ence in a year or two at most ......... I.. 25
and continued a source of income! ........ 100
So the complaint of "expense" falls to the -
ground. Some persons have already applied
to rent seats there.
4. The pews to be removed for the pulpit would
be replaced by the 4 additional seats in the chancel
and in lieu of the 3 required for the organ, 3 others
would be given whence the pulpit is removed, more
desirable, and meeting the sanction of the present
holders. As to the rest, they would not be affected
worth speaking of, except as to a sort of sentimen-
talism opposed to any change, and that says "we
are satisfied, and disregard the convenience and
comfort of others, even if they do sit with backs to
the Minister, and have to turn round twice."
5. Instead of reducing the number of sittings in
the chancel, and confining them, the plan shows an
increase of 6 sittings, and being open seats are of
course less confined and cooler.
It is worthy of note that amongst the majority of
objectors are several who are not pewholders, and
do not attend the services at St. John's; and one
who argued strongly at the meeting for no change
in the old Church,' on account of. old associations,
yet, with many others of the same mind, could sup-
port the amendment that calls for the removal of
the present vestry, so long occupied by the late
Rector and his predecessors; and also of the waiting
room, where so many of us and our children have
been waiting in the nurse's arms to receive the
rite of Baptism, but could not bear for the pulpit to
be drawn aside a few feet! and he too, not only not
belonging to the congregation, nor to the Episco-
pal Church, but to some other Church, with the
legal right to vote.
Amongst those in favour of the alterations, are
several pewholders, and ladies, who have no
vote. The faithful voluntary Choir are entitled
to some consideration for their services, and having
long been uncomfortable in the gallery, would like
to be relieved by coming downstairs.
It is somewhat remarkable that none of this sen-
timentalism was manifested, nor any objection offer-
ed a few years ago when all the arrangements of
the Eastern end of the Church were altered-the
old wooden railing was removed .and replaced by a
modern, iron rail-the tablets taken down, and
placed elsewhere, and all their ancient framework
cast aside, and the wall of the Church removed to
give place to the beautiful "Apse" that we are all
proud of, and is universally admired ? Nor later
still, when those ancient square pews that had ac-
commodated so many Governors and Admirals were
removed, and replaced by modern seats running
East and West? Is no allowance to be made for the
yearly improving taste of the rising generation.!
Are we always to keep everything old e How is it
with the Churches throughout the country, has not
every one been more or less modernised inside and
out, and the new ones built been improvements on
the old ? Have not our burial grounds all been im-
proved? How is it with our own houses, and ar
not many of these objectors constantly improving
their old dwellings ? Then why all this sentimen-
talism about altering our little Parish Sanctuary tc
make it more convenient and comfortable for botl
Clergy and People ?
Now all things considered, if the author of the
"' amendment" would kindly admit a little elasticity
into his apprehension of ritualism, which is evi-
dently magnified, and endeavor, unselfishly to sub-
due, or bend it to the views of those who have only
the best interests and feelings of the congregation
generally, at heart; and who desire to promote the
accommodation and beauty of God's House, with
reverence in Worship; our next meeting will no
doubt thro' his example and advocacy, be charac-
terized by a spirit of unanimity; and a reasonable
people will, upon reflection, and an examination of
the plan, award a respectful deference to the claims

A NOVEL FISHING VESSEL.
There was recently, or there is still, a vessel in
Queenstown harbour which is remarkable as being
probably destined to work a revolution in the sup-
ply of fish to large towns. The Raphael, owned by
Messrs. Cabissol et Cie., of Marseilles-formerly
the Collingwood, of Newcastle-is a schooner-rigg-
ed steamer, of 681 tons net register, and able to
cawy about 1,000 tons dead weight, including fuel.
She carries two steam launches for fishing, and
bad on board, when arriving at Queenstown, 90
tons of salmon and trout, which she commenced
catching at Labrador and Sandwich Bay on the
10th June last, and she was eight days. coming to
port. Her holds are hermetically sealed and
refrigerated, and the fish lie in wooden trays. The
refrigerating apparatus need not be described, as
it Is similar to those familiar to our readers. But
the experiments with the vessel demonstrate that
fish may be kept on board for months, and then be
perfectly fit for food. Moreover this vessel could
come to port for order, and wait as easily as if
she carried grain. She could go to London,
Liverpool, Rouen (for Paris), or even Bombay,
and sell her cargo in large or small quantities
without any fear of glutting the market. She
could bring fish of one country to ports where the
like has never been seen fresh before; and, indeed
we need not expatiate upon what such a vessel
could do in the way of bringing fresh supply. She
could deliver a cargo in London and go to the
North Sea fishing grounds (if the prospects were
good) and run a cargo thence to Billingsgate safely
in the hottest weather.-The Inventor's Record,
THE ARAB MASSACRES IN ORAN.
The following is from the Gibraltar Chronicle of the
4th ult.: The Spanish journals are full of sad
details of the despoinug of their Colony in the pro-
vince of Oran by the Arabs, and the loss of life and
property thereby occasioned. The Colonists are
flying in all directions, and already over 8000 have
left the country in the men-of-war Numancia, Vul.
cano, and other vessels, many of them suffering
from severe wounds, and all destitute. Reports
say that the conduct of some of the French soldiers
was bad, and the terrible heat impeded the move-
ments of others. Great indignation exists among
the Spaniards in the country, and disputes between
them and the French in the streets and cafds are
constant and very bitter. It is stated the au-
thorities refuse to issue arms to the colonists, and
that the columns have retired from the open coun-
try to the fortified towns. The captives taken by
Bou A mema are Paid to be very numerous, and
that he has with him 20,000 horsemen well supplied
with provisions and modern arms. Water is
becoming scarce in Oran on account of the
great increase of inhabitants, and the crops every-
where present the worst appearance. The raid of
the Arabs is intelligible enough considering the
agitation which has been caused amid the Mussul-
man population of Northern Africa by the French
Invasion of Tunis, and It would only be in conform-
ity with all the traditions of Oriental warfare that
such a raid, if it did occur, should have been, ac-
companied by circumstances of exceptional cruelty
and atrocity. Whatever excuse may be made for
this outbreak of savagery it is obvious that it will
have to be punished sternly and dicisively. No
nation occupying the position that France does in
an Oriental country can allow its subjects to be
massacred and outraged with impunity.
W ORTH KNOWING AND REMEMBERING.
A distinguished American physician writes to
the Detroit News: It is not generally understood by
the mass of people that persons fainting, either from
heart disease, apoplexy or sunstroke, should not b
raised to a sitting posture even, but should lie flat on
the back or side, with sometimes (not always) the
head slightly raised upon a pillow. An upright or
semi sitting posture is, in this class of cases, if long
continued, almost sure death. The heart is already
enfeebled in its action, the brain poorly supplied with
blood (hence the fainting condition) and an upright
position of the bbdy only adds to the dangerous
conditions already present. In cases of exhausting
hemorrhages from accidents, or excessive weakness
from exhaustion and long continued diseases are,
other cases where the upright posture should not be
allowed. Heart-clots form easily under these con-
ditions, and hence sudden death is liable therefrom.
The condition of patients laboring under any of the
above, and many other diseases, should positively
preclude the use.of coupes or carriages for their
transportation. They should lie at full length, either
in an ambulance or an ordinary express waggon
with a .unshade of some sort over them.
The Jews in Russia.-Sr. PETERSBURG, Oct. 1.-
The minister, of the Interior, in his recent circular
appo.nting local commissions to examine into the
Jewish question, says: The Government recognizes
the detriment to the Christian population of the
commercial activity, exclusiveness and religious
fanaticism of the Jews, which are still predominant
in spite of the twenty years' efforts to blend the
two populations. The circular attributes the re-
cent disturbances to exclusively economic causes
growing out of the monopolization of trade and
rights over land by the Jews, and the unfair ad-
vantage they take of the poorer classes. The Min-
ister promises the Jews protection against violence,
bautisays that energetic measures must be taken to
shield the Christians from the effects of their in-
jurious activity. Statistics ate therefore required
from the commissions showing the extent of the
liquor trade bih the hands of the Jews, their land
rentals and their numerical strength, with meias-
ures for correcting the abnormal situation.
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.

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
