England's Attitude toward the world Discussed by j
the British Premier-Fair Trade Condemned-Ame-
rican protection and English Free Trade.
LONDON Oct. 8, 1881.
A monster meeting was held in Leeds this after-
noon, at which Mr. Gladstone again spoke. He
reviewed the foreign policy of the government. He
congratulated the liberal party on the results re-
garding Montenegro and Greece. He severely con-
demned the invasion of Afghanistan, the only re-
sult of which, he said, was to convert the Afghans
from friends to enemies and thus break down
the moral barrier between India and Russia. He
rejoiced to say that the troops had been al-
most completely withdrawn, thereby effacing some
of the most unfortunate and scandalous recollecti-
ons written in our history. He said:-" The joint
action established by France and England in
Egypt is a course which opens out of many diffi-
culties and objections of which we now begin to
experience the risks, but I am happy to say that
Anglo-French intervention has been beneficial both
to Egyptian finances and to the condition of the
peasants. Our policy in Egypt will be guided by
the consideration-namely to act in strict concert
with the allied and friendly government of France.
I have no doubt that we shall be able to maintain
perfectly united action. I shall endeavour to pre-
vent the growth of the difficulties between Egypt and
the Sultan. Except in case of unforeseen necessity
we shall not seek to extend the limits of our inter-
ference." Mr. Gladstone defended the conduct of
the Government regarding the Transvaal, and
said :-"In spite of expectations the Volks.
raad has not yet ratified the liberal conditions of
the convention. We have been invited to reopen
negotiations. It is possible that in some minor
points the conditions might be modified. The con-
cessions wa made were not due to weakness or
timidity. I do not know what is going to happen.
1 hope the convention willshortly be ratified. But
this I will say :-"We shall remember and faith-
fully maintain the interests of the numerous native
populations of the Transvaal and no less faithfully
maintain the dignity of this great country." Mr.
Gladstone warmly repelled the charge that the
liberal party were indifferent to the interests of the
Empire, and concluded his speech with a descrip-
tion of the liberal policy, which he characterized
as a policy of peace and justice.
Free Trade vs. Protection.
Mr. Gladstone, replying to an address from the
Leeds Chamber of Commerce to-day said that,
although he could not make an explicit state-
ment regarding the negotiations for a new Anglo
French commercial treaty, they were in no way
surrounded by doubt or difficulty. In regard to
free trade he said there bad been lately a reaction
to a certain extent, but he was firmly convinced
that they might as well attempt to overthrow trial
by jury as to restore protective duties. No govern-
ment that is possible in England would pledge
itself to such a course. The Government was
determined that whatever treaty it negotiated with
France should not be of a retrograde character.
As an illustration of the benefits of free trade Mr.
Galdstone pointed out that the whole American
export of manufactured goods to Asia, Africa and
Australia amounted to r4,750,000 worth, while
the English exports to those countries amounted
to 77,000,000. (Cheers.) The trade of France
and America together did not equal the English.
Although both enjoyed protection, England beat
them in all neutral markets. Mr. Gladstone said :
" So long as America adheres to protection our
commercial supremacy will be secure. We need
not disturb ourselves the slightest on that score.
Compared with America and Germany we have
now man for man thrice the amount of trade they
Gladstone on ParnelL.-Mr. Gladstone, in the
course of his speech, referring to Mr. Parnall's
course on the Land Bill, declares that although
Mr. Parnell did all he could to injure the bill
he did not dare to vote against it, for if he had
done sohisown Leaguerswould have risen in a body
against him. The Earlof Carnarvon (conservative)
speaking at Dublin on Friday, said :-" The
Government's legislation is meagre and fruitless
where it is not shameful; the government ot great
promises had become a government of small per-

The 31st Regt. left Dover for Ireland on the 20th
ultimo and was loudly cheered.
There are few people in our midst who failed to
notice what a most beautiful day it was Sunday, it
was certainly a perfect day, and everything in na-
ture seemed perfect around us; the sky, the land,
the sea, the air, were as all delight in, thoroughly
enjoyable, thoroughly beautiful: one could hardly
help inwardly praising GOD for all his benefits.
* The words in'the psalms for the day-" Young men
and maidens, old men and children praise the name
of the Lord," seemed specially appropriate. The
cedars of Bermuda were clad in their grandest ver-
dure of dark green, and the lighter, and as it were
polished green of the orange and lemon and other
fruit trees, contrasted beautifully with them; or
again the Pride of India-that noble tree so well
adapted to our climate, its rich foliage affording
perfect shade during the hot months of Summer,
and in winter entirely denuded, allowing the grate-
ful sun to warm everything-with autumnal foliage
of various hues from the palest yellow to the
heaviest green here and there looked most conspicu-
ous; those yellow leaves now daily falling, vividly
reminding us that the year has nearly run its course,
and that the glorious season of Christmas is near-
that grand festival which is ever as a bright day to
gladden and warm the hearts of all Christendom.
The mild zephyrs played around just right, the
children's swing was put in motion by their gentle
force and sometimes for an instant the ropes would
listlessly but peaceably hang and hardly move at
all; again to go to and fro by force of the balmy
air. But look, see the cat children run quickly,
sh? has caught a bird mu! and the children start-
ed and pussy proud of her conquest, and in the full
enjoyment of her sport ran away with something
in her mouth. The youthful pursuers chased her
and pussy passed us again with an unfortunate
harmless lizard between her teeth, unlucky rep-
tile; it had evidently bean basking in the sun and
lulled by its charms became a victim to the cruel
cat. A simple little incident but how illustrative of
those words: "In the midst of life we are in
death." It is said of Robert Hall, a most cele-
brated pulpit-orator, that he proposed to preach on
the words just quoted, and then after diligently
searching his Concordance made the discovery that
these words were not in the Bible at all, but in a
certain book which we English Churchmen rank
next- to the Bible. The sea was a turquoise blue
all day-it was of that deep blue which has made
the water about our pretty islands so famous and
so mueh admired by all visitors. And how the in-
valids must have enjoyed Sunday's weather, every-
body could go out not only with impunity but feel-
ing assured that every breath they drew would, do
them great good. One of our leading Physicians
h: r said this friend in speaking of the weather,
that if it would always keep like that we should
all live to be over a hundred. And in everything
there was peace-everything tended to produce
peace of mind.
"The birds singing gaily that come at my call
Give me.them with peace of mind dearer than all."

COURT OF GENERAL ASSIZE-MICHAEL-
MAS TERM 1881.
29th October, 1881.
The Court held its usual sitting after the close
of the Civil Sessions to dispose of civil business not
requiring a jury.
Judgment was entered up and costs taxed in the
following cases: Parker v. Cooper; Heney v.
Tyler; Brangman v. Brangman and another; Zuill
and others, Executrix and Executors v. Outerbridge
and others, Executrixes and Executor; Walker
and another v. Outerbridge and others, Executrix-
es and Executor; Bluck v. Outerbridge and others,
Executrixes and Executor; Paynter v. Furbert;
Enas and another v. De Sylva; and Outerbridge
and another v. Nash.
In the cases of Parker v. Cooper and Brangman v.
Brangman and another, the Chief Justice certified
for costs on the ground that the actions were res-
pectively brought to try a right besides the mere
right to recover damages. In the former case the
defendant's attorney admitted that such was the
case. In the latter the application was made on
an affidavit of the plaintiff of the alleged right
which the action was brought to vindicate and on
that the Chief Justice granted the certificate.
In the case of Middleton v. Smith and another
Mr. Reginald Gray, for the defendants, moved for
a rule nisi for a new trial on the ground of the erro-
neous admission after the close of the claimant's
case of evidence on his behalf to remedy defects in
the substance of the claimant's case. The Court
refused the rule on the ground that the recalling of
a witness was entirely a matter for the discretion
of the Judge, or Court, who tried the case, and that
the Court would only review that discretion where
satisfied that the recalling of the witness was clearly
Judgment was then signed and the costs taxed,
after the Court had disposed of some objections to
the Bill, raised by the defendants' counsel.
In the ease of Outerbridge and another v. Jos6
Mr. Reginald Gray, for the plaintiffs, moved for
a rule nisi to set aside the nonsuit on several
grounds, the principal of which was that the terms
which the Court imposed on the plaintiffs at the
trial as the only condition on which they would be
allowed to amend their Declaration, and in conse-
quence of which the plaintiffs elected to be non-
suited, were unreasonable. The Court granted a
rule calling on the defendant to shew cause why
the nonsuit should not be set aside and a new trial
granted, the plaintiffs being allowed to amend their
Declaration on payment of the costs of the amend-
ment and the costs of the day on which the non*
suit was obtained.
The Solicitor General, for the defendant, showed
cause against the rule being made absolute, urging
that as the plaintiffs had themselves elected to be
nonsuited they ought not to be allowed to have
it set aside or their own application.
After some further discussion the Court made
the rule absolute, the costs of the rule to be costs
in the cause.
This concluded the business for the present Term.
We gladly transfer to our columns to-day from
the Verginia Stanton Vindicator of the 30th Sep-
tember, the following particulars of a design by
Gilbert R. Frith, Esq., of a monument to the mem-
ory of the late King of Italy "Victor Emanuel,"
to be placed in competition with the works of other
artists for adoption, as a national monument to be
erected at Rome.
Most of our readers in Bermuda know, if not
personally, at least by reputation, the Gentleman
above alluded to, being a native of these Islands.
Mr. Frith's early artistic taste was exhibited to a
certain extent in the many graceful and appropri-
ate decorations of the town of Hamilton, and in the
transparences, &c., which adorned the streets and
houses on the occasion of the visit of Prince Alfred
in 1861 ; and subsequently, when residing in Hali-
fax, Nova Scotia, where he published very many ar-
tistic cartoons whichwere greatly admired for origin-
ality, truthfullness and taste. Since he as taken up
hisMesidence inVerginia many monumental and other
designs of his have received great commendation.
We wish him entire success in his present stupend-
A DESIGN FOR THE GREAT MONUMENT
(From the Virginia Stanton Vindicator, September 30th.)
Some weeks ago, a design which was being mount-
ed for shipment to Europe, attracted a great deal of
attention at the business place of Frank Prufer &
Son. It was a design prepared by the well known
artist, Gilbert R. Frith, Esq., to be put in Compe-
tition for adoption for the national monument
ordered by the Italian Parliamemt to the memory
of Victor Emanuel. The monument is to cost
about $2,000,000. Mr. Frith's design is original
and beautiful. The exterior is to be of bronze, in
the shape of a colossal helmet, resting on a base of
granite, illuminated by panels and made to approx-
imate the form of a cross illustrative of the thought
that Christianity is at the base of all of Italy's
greatness. The helmet is to present an illustration
of the globe. The Eastern Hemisphere is domin-
ated by a figure of Ceasar-the ruler of the old
world. On the Western Hemisphere is a statue
of Columbus, the discoverer of the Western world,
a son of Italy. There is a perfect representation
of Italy on the globe as the crest of the helmet; her
beauty revealed by a statue of Victor Emanuel
who, with the hoofs of his horse, has spurned off
the clinging cloud which had oppressed her. He
holds his charger poised and points aloft to his
countrymen to still nobler deeds. Then there is a
statue of Italy holding aloft a wreath of honor in-
scribed to Victor Emanuel. A colossal eagle, the
bird of war, appears at the back with a garland in-
scribed II Re Galantuomo." The interior of the
monument which is to be of marble, presents a
dome in which there are twenty-seven segments
to bear representations illustrating the twenty-se-
ven centuries that have passed since the founding
of Rome.jThe whole design of Mr. Frith, of which
this is but a partial and very incomplete description
is elaborate, original and beautiful.
The design was shipped by express to Rome,
August 25th. On September 21st Mr. F. received
a cable telegram from Mr. Hooker the American
consul, saying it had not yet arrived up to that
time. This is unfortunate as the competition was
to close at 5 P. M. September 25th, but Mr. Frith
had sent on a copy of the libretto by mail, -which
he hopes may be received as a formal entry.
THE NEW BRITISH MINISTER TO THE UNITED
STATES.-The Honorable Lionel Sackville West,
the newly appointed British Minister to the United
States, left Liverpool for Philadelphia on the 22nd
October in the steamer Indiana. The Earl and
Counties of Derby and a distinguished party from
Knowsley Hall, went out in the tender to bid the
NovA-ScoTIA POTATOEs.-The Potatoe crop of
Nova Scotia does not seem to have been as abun-
dant this year as it was the last. Immense ship-
ments are however being made at the various ports
in the Province, particularly from Yarmouth to
Boston at a price double that of last year-namely
70 cents per bushel.-It is said that P. E. Island
will not send a potato to any local market. It is
believed that one dollar per bushel will be the rul-
ing price during the winter months in the Domi-
THE NEED OF A REFORMATORY FOR
We would call attention of the public to a sub-
ject which appears to us, to be one of vital import-
ance as regards the interests of the Colony in the
future, which rises above any mere private or party
considerations, and which would seem to call for
some remedial action on the part of the Legislature,
at no distant date.
We allude to the comparatively large-numbers of
convicted criminals at present confined in our Gaols,
and whose ages range from fourteen to less than
eighteen years; we have it on good authority that
out of a total of fifteen prisoners now imprisoned in
Hamilton Gaol no fewer than six are of the age just
We think that there are but few persons who
will not readily acknowledge, that confinement in
a common Gaol, where of necessity there must be
more or less of contact with old and hardened of-
fenders, is a form of punishment which is calcu-
lated to have the very worst possible effect upon the
characters of boys and youths, who are subjected
In the first place, that horror almost, even of seeing
the inside of a prison which most men have, and
which doubtless has a powerful influence in deterr-
ing them from the commission of crime, has, in their
case, been totally destroyed; they have gone be-
yond that; the prison now has but few terrors for
them, and it is not to be wondered at if these young
offenders should again and again be convicted of
offences against the law,' and eventually spend no
small portion of their lives, at the public expense,
within the Gaol walls.
And further, on the completion of their term of
imprisonment, even if they are disposed to earn an
honest livelihood, the difficulties in their way are
very great; in a small Colony like ours such a
thing as a fresh start in life is almost impossible for
them; they are thrown again into the midst of their
former bad companions, the fact of their having
been in Gaol is universally known, and persons as a
rule are greatly indisposed to run the risk of having
them in their employment.
There can be little doubt that the few in Gaol who
have been caught and punished are but the repre-
sentatives of a much larger number outside. It is
too evident that we have in our midst, young per-
sons of both sexes, mere children in years, under
little or no control, parental or otherwise, some of
them leading a half vagrant life, and who if not
checked and taken hold of in some way, will as-
suredly grow up to be the plague if not the dan-
ger of society.
Our object in calling attention to the matter is to
ask whether some reformatory system cannot be de-
vised, which shall be in a position to take charge of
the moral and industrial training of children of this
description? They have their lives before them, but
the chances of their doing well are decidedly against
them, the object then should be, so to deal with
them, as that they may have afair opportunity af-
forded of becoming decent and useful members of
The efforts of private individuals can do but little
to effect this, coercive powers are needed, which
the law alone can supply, of course with proper
safeguards and precautions; and if the Legislature
should see fit to take the question in hand, the laws
of the Mother-country where the Reformatory sys-
tem is in full operation, would, doubtless, with the
necessary modifications, afford the lines upon which
some measure to meet the requirements of the case
may be framed.
It must be evident that instead of imprisonment
in a common Gaol a much more fitting mode of
treatment, for a young person, under a certain age,
convicted of crime, would be detention in a Reform-
atory for a lengthened period, during which he
should be under discipline, and be instructed in
some useful trade; and the same course may under
certain well defined cases be pursued, when it can
plainly be shown that a child's habits are incorri-
gibly bad, or that he is under no fitting or proper
Of course it would be a matter of some expense
and trouble to set any such scheme on foot, but this
ought not, in such a case, to be allowed to stand in
tife way, and if trades of some kind were taught,
there is no reason, why, a properly managed insti-
tution such as would be required, should not be to
a great extent self-supporting; and surely on every
ground, religious, moral, and we think we may add
pecuniary, the advantages to the Colony would be
very great; for the eventual cost of an unreformed
criminal to the community willbe far greater, than
any expense which may be incurredin teaching him,
to earn an honest living.
Arrival of the Epglish Mail of Oct. 13.
The R. M. Steamer Alpha, Captain Crowell, with
the English Mail of the 13th ultimo, arrived at St.
Georges at 5 p. m. of Thursday last, having left
Halifax at noon on the Monday previous. She had
a very rough passage.
We are indebted to Captain Crowell and other
friends for some Halifax papers of the latest dates.
THE GOVERNOR GENERAL OF CANADA.-The Mar-
quis of Lorne's visit to England has been delayed
in consequence it is said of his having received on
the 21st ultimo a cablegram announcing that Gen-
eral Sir Patrick McDougall, who is now in England,
will be in Canada again in two weeks, and that his
arrival is awaited in order that he may act as ad-
ministrator during the absence of His Excellency.
It is estimated that the season's yield of wheat
in Quebec and Ontario will be 25,000,000 bushels.
The good harvest is apparently not due to extended
planting, as the acreage on the two sections has not
been materially increased. Returns from Manitoba
point to wheat acreage there of 100,000 acres yield-
ing in round numbers 3,000,000 bushels of wheat.
A few weeks back we announced that a
school for white children under the direction of
the Board of Education, had been established in
our town. The success which attended this un-
dertaking has surpassed what the most sanguine
might have expected. The school is now full, aud
we hear that over twenty applications for admis-
sion have been refused. An endeavour is being
made te start a similar school in the neigebourhood
of Spanish Point, and we have reason to believe it
will be successful. Other schools which are to be
placed under the Board of Education, and to re-
ceive a share of the public grant are opening in
different parts of the islands.
.Yesterday such a school for white children was
opened in Paget Parish. There is no doubt that
such a school is wanted, and we hope it will meet
with as much success as the school in our town.
MOVEMENTS OF COMPANIES OF THE ROY-
AL IRISH RIFLES.
On Friday last "G" Company, commanded by
Lieut. Allan, R.I.R., marched from Warwick
Camp to Prospect Camp, where it is to be stationed,
having undergone a course of Musketry Instruction
at the former Camp.
About the end of the present week "B" Com-
pany, commanded by CaptainH. H. Stuart, R.I.R.,
will proceed from Prospect Camp to Warwick
Camp for the purpose of going through a course of
musketry. After musketry Instruction it will be
stationed at Saint Georges.
G" NEW PASSAGE AND FREIGHu BoAT.-The fine
little steamer St. George, Captain Leseur, com-
menced her tri-weekly trips from St. George's to
Ireland Island and Hamilton, yesterday.-For
.Terms'of Passage, &c., see advertising columns of
THE NEW STEAMER ST. GEORGE. "r-
This fine little Steamer visited our harbor on Sa-
turday for the purpose of giving to a number of in-
vited guests. an excursion through the Great Sound
to Boaz Island, Ireland Island, and Tuckers' Island.
A large number of invitations were issued a day or
two before, and the Steamer "Britannia" was
kindly furnished as a tender, in the expectation of
a larger Company than the former could accommo-
date, but the day, Saturday, was an unfortunate
one in several respects, and many persons were
otherwise engaged, so the Company was much
smaller than the Hosts were hoping to meet, and
the absentees were decidedly the losers, for it was
a charming day, and the excursion was a very plea-
sant one. We first stopped at Boaz a short time,
and some of the company landed and took a view
of the surroundings; then we stopped a short
time at Ireland Isle, where we met the little "Dis-
patch" taking in her freight and passengers, and
soon the "Reliance" complimented us with her
appearance, and it was a very novel and imposing
sight to behold those four Island Steamers display-
ing their bunting, and graceful movements. After
surveying the objects of attraction on the Island,
we steamed away in fine style for "Tucker's
Island," where we landed, some sauntering about
at will, some to the celebrated Cave, and some re-
galing the delightful air under the shade of lofty
cedars spreading out their branches to ward off the
Meridian Sun, and to enjoy which Captain Meyer
had thoughtfully covered the green with numerous
benches with backs to support the weary. After a-
bout an hour the whistle blew to summon the little
"Army to quarters," and we soon found ourselves
comfortably seated on the upper deck of the St.
George," covered in by awnings, and a table spread
with viands to refresh the inner man. Having
been refreshed our never failing friends "Moett
and Chandon" put in an appearance, and the Soul
was soon stirred, and we had toasts to Her Majesty
the Queen, the President of the United States,
the Army and Navy, and various others of lesser
note, all which were appropriately responded: to,
and then in fine spirits we left for the beautiful
Island of Somerset, where we landed at Mangrove
Bay, the "Reliance" being at the wharf to bid us
welcome thanks to the kindness of her worthy com-
mander, Capt. Hill, who kindly came on board to
greet us, and it was pleasant to see such harmony
between these in one sense rival boats, a most
laudable rivalry it is Now we started for home
sweet home." The St. George is a superior little
craft for freight and passengers, furnished with
every accommodation, and we wish her success in
the business she has entered upon. Captains Meyer
and Luchenbach deserve the thanks of the Colony
for their enterprise, and it is to be hoped they will
be well patronized and rewarded.
ME. GLADSTONE.-It was reported at Halifax
prior to the R. M. Steamer "Alpha" leaving there
on yesterday week that an attempt had been made
on the life of Mr. Gladstone, but we are glad to
say it was soon proved to be without foundation.
An Inquisition was held at the Town Hall, Ham-
ilton, on the 29th ult., before Charles C. Keane,
Esq., Coroner, on view of the body of a woman of
color, named Ann Susan Stewart, who was found
drowned on the night of the 29th in Hamilton
On the following day Mr. Keane held an Inqui-
sition at Riddles Bay, on view of the body of Mary
Tucker, a woman of color, who was found dead at
the side of her bed on'the morning of the same day
The deceased was an infirm old woman having
reached the age of 82 years.-Verdict-Died from

Supplement to the Bermuda Royal Gazette, Tuesday, November 1, 1881.
For the Royal Gazette.
"MURDER WILL OUT."
Since the various arguments put forth at th
Public Meeting of 30th September have been met
and refuted, your correspondent A Pembrok
Churchman" comes to the front to inform the corn
munity that the Mayor is responsible for "th(
amendment," which now reduces the issue to thi
fine point of ritualism, "the thin edge of the wedge,'
the thick edge being of course by his theory Jesuit
ism! This was quite evident by both his manner
and matter when introduced, the other points being
merely the shading of the back ground. He having
S so publicly assailed others, may naturally expect
that in their defense they may be compelled to re.
turn the compliment as modestly as possible. Your
correspondent commends him for his boldness ii
stating "that it is a ritualistic movement whici
prompts the alterations in the Parish Church, and
it behooves all right thinking persons to oppose
everything that tends, or has any appearance of
ritualism about it, that being the work of Jesuits.'
Well I must say that this is a great stroke of bold-
ness, unless qualified by the possibility that his
I specs' don't suit, magnifying too much for a true
sight. Any how he is to undertake the arrest of
suspected ritualists and Jesuits in the Congregation.
This savors a little of the intimation given by "An-
tiquity" in the last Gazette, of the exercise of cer-
tain power in our Church upon occasions. Pray
under what Law of Church or State in this Colony
does he propose to proceed, or does he mean to im-
port German Laws, and authority ? It appears by
your correspondent that there are but "few true
old Protestants in the Parish who do not bow the
knee to Baal." All besides those Pharisees* are to
be expelled by authority as ritualists and Jesuits,
so clearly intimated by his reference to what has
been done in France and Germany, where the Chris -
tian Religion flourishes in such purity! Are the
worshippers of that little Church prepared to abide
by the example that emanates from that quarter ?
It may be well to state that after the idea had
been long since abandoned by the Vestry (under
professional advice) of making any addition to the
Church, he, by his own admission at the public
meeting, (and for his own accommodation, too, pri-
marily,) was the first to revive it, which necessi-
tated opening a door of entrance into the Chancel,
and the removal of the rail, thus reducing the al-
ready too contracted space of the Apse, for reasons
that he may explain; and the Vestry were disposed
to make some sacrifice to meet his peculiar wishes.
This was the first alteration proposed at the public
meeting, and which involved the removal of the old
Vestry and waiting room, .,and supplying the vacancy
by new pews-all which according to your corres-
pondent's statement was "prompted by a ritualis-
tic movement." I need not enlarge by repeating
the honest reasons for all the alterations that have
been already so clearly defined by your correspon-
dents "Logic," and "Antiquity." We all know
that turnings in Church during worship are con-
sidered ritualistic. Our objector adopts this him-
self, and by example advocates it in others at every
Morning Service in St. John's, whereas the turning
of the seats would put an end to it once for all.
Another word upon position. It is worthy of note
that in Devonshire, the open seats that run East and
West in the closest proximity to the Chancel are
occupied by the strongest opponents of ritualism!
And it is somewhat remarkable that the seconder of
the "amendment," so enthusiastic in its support,
has for many years, and still does occupy a seat
running East and West, adjoining the very seats in
the Chancel that he so strongly opposes being turn-
ed the same as his own, on the ground of ritualism!
0 inconsistency, is not thy mother's name Selfish-
ness ? Your correspondent employs five lines of
Italics to establish what ordinary type cannot sus-
tain, viz. : "that those who did attend the meeting
of 30th September and voted against the Church
Wardens' resolution were with one exception all mem-
bers of the Congregation, which shewed their voice
and feeling in the matter." I would advise him to
clear his "specs," which in this case eliminate ra-
ther than magnify. As "a Pembroke Churchman"
he ought to know that the Sexton of Trinity is not
a member of St. John's Congregation, any more
than another voter who has been for a long time,
and still is a permanent resident in Warwick-thus
making three exceptions, and by adding two others
who do not attend the Services at St. John's, re-
ducing the actual Congregational majority to six or
seven, which can hardly be considered as proof of
their feeling, when it is also taken into consider-
ation that there is scarcely a doubt as to some of
those present voting against it under fear that they
may be taxed, because the clerk in framing his no-
tices inadvertently omitted that "the cost was to
be defrayed out of funds in hand," as is recorded
in the "Minutes."
Your correspondent enquires "if the yearly im-
proving taste of the rising generation is to cause
dissension and heart burnings, where is the thing
to end ?" I reply that the "if" is well put in, and
that the dissension, and heart burnings are caused
by a few fanatics* who may end them when they
In conclusion I am constrained to express my
opinion that it is very bad taste at least, if not a
virtual contradiction of their principles, for the
"' few who do not bow the knee to Baal" to be found
in such bad company every Sunday, as the many
that do, according to your correspondent's theory,
and I doubt not that he has often ere this, blushed
when thinking of his remark, if he be really what
he professes to be, a Churchman.
Now, Mr. Editor, I must thank you for indulging
me with so much of your valuable space, and I think
the public must by this time be well tired of this
subject. My main object in thus intruding upon
them is, that in discussing our differences every
"Pembroke Churchman" will manifest
** Quite as innocent as "ritualist" or "Jesuit."

In the matter of St. John's Church, Pembroke,
I agree with your Correspondent Antiquity.
Christianity wrote heedlessly. He thought that a
second meeting would have retarded innovation,
had the first not been staunch. The congregation
knew better. They met and settled the matter
there and then, doubtless being cognizant that af-
ter a notice one meeting is final. Let no freeman
Christianity wrote from the right side, however,
actively and honestly; but he was precipitate.
Antiquity need not have dragged the services at
Devonshire Church into controversy, and he ought
not to have referred to them as low. That which
is scriptural ought not to be called low.
High, in Church temporal matters, is a simple ab-
breviation of high-handed, a definition dismally
forced on the English understanding between 1629
and 1640, when Archbishop Laud ruled men's
minds through the High Commission Court, and
mutilated their bodies under edicts of the Star
Both Correspondents must accept the premiss,
that a world cursed by the presence of a Devil can-
not yet possess even a Church without some evil,
and the evil is temptation, in this case temptation
to malice about introducing non essentials.
The question at St. John's Church is how to
increase the sitting room, to accommodate a surely
increasing congregation, and improve the ventila-
tion, without offending any worshipper. The an-
swer is, extend and ventilate; but do not disar-
range. It is but a natural fear that the proposed
disarrangement involves the loss of a tangible proof
of the Reformer's protest against the eastward po-
sition, which eastward position is in accordance
with the doctrines of an altar, and of a priesthood,
and in consonance with the idea of a material sa-
It ought to be considered more essential that
"whosoever will" shall feel welcome in the Na-
tional Church, than even one little one should be
Offended, by the non-essentials, of floral decora-
P tions or changes in the historical arrangement of

9 To the Editor of Royal Gazette.
t DEAR SIR,
An article appeared in last weeks' Colonist signed
r "An admirer of Mr. Bergh," which would lead
one to suppose that cruelty to animals' was the
I leading topic and result of the Race Meeting held
at the Town Hall on Friday, 21st inst., and that
article has led a great many persons to suppose and
believe that if Starlight runs this year he will have
to carry 15 stone, which is not the case at all. The
meeting, after electing the Stewards proceeded un-
3 duly to elect the Judges, starters, handicappers,
clerk of scales, clerk of course, &c., which has ever
been left in the hands of the Stewards, whose duty
it is and has been most effectually and satisfactori-
ly carried out for the last four years.-After the
meeting had nominated and elected the Handicap-
Sprs for the coming race and had got through with
all the conditions, etc., without any objections,
excepting the 2nd condition when it was proposed
to change the entrance money from a standard fee
to an "ad valorem" which was objected to by a
solitaire at the foot of the table, until they came to
the Shelly Bay handicap when it was proposed by
Mr. Clay to handicap by distance, an amendment
was offered that the handicapping be by weight as
last year, which was carried by a large majority.-
Dr. Tucker proposed a maximum and that it be 11
stone (not 13), Mr. Peniston proposed it be 15 stone
which he subsequently withdrew and the meeting
was of opinion that as the handicapping was with-
out a fault last year as the heaviest weighted won
and the next heaviest was second it was undoubt-
edly based on sound judgment, and that the judg-
ment of the handicappers should not be hampered;
some discussion arose out of the original motion as
to the difficulty attendant on obtaining a fair start
of a lot of horses placed at unequal distances apart,
but not two hours;" one man said he thought it
cruel to make any horse run a mile and a half with
a bbl. of flour on his back, but if Starlight carried
a bbl. of flour last year flour must have been a
great deal cheaper then than it is now. As the ad-
mirer of Mr. Bergh seems to have taken up the
cudgel in behalf of Starlight why does he not go to
Starlight's owner and try and induce him not to
run him in the handicap ;-there are two other
races on the Programme for which Starlight is
eligible and would have to carry 175 lbs. only, and
as a horse can win only two Purses Starlight would
undoubtedly carry them off easily; but I presume
that the owner of Starlight is as good a judge of
his capabilities as well as the handicappers did last
year and knew that he would win even with 14
stone. I do not mean to say he thought he would
win as 'easy or that his jockey would have any
time to spare to waive his cap and beckon to those
behind to come along, as he did the year before,
but he knew full well he'd win and will again.
AN ADMIRER OF TRUTH.
THE PBOOLAMATION AGAINST THE LAND LEAvGuE.
DimrBU, Oct. 20.-Earl Cowper, Lord Lieutenant
of Ireland, has, in a special proclamation to be is-
sued to-night, declared the Land League to be an
illegal organization, and warned the Irish people
that its meetings of all kinds in any place will be
dispersed by force. The following is the procla-
By the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.
Whereas, an association styling itself the Irish
National Land League has existed for some time
past, assuming to interfere with the Queen's sub-
jects in the free exercise of their lawful rights, and
especially to control the relations between land-
lords and tenants in Ireland:
Whereas, the designs of the association are being
sought to be effected by an organized system of in-
timidation, by attempting to obstruct the service of
the processes, the execution of the Queen's writs
and by seeking to deter the Queen's subjects from
fulfilling their contracts and following their lawful
callings and occupations:
Whereas, the said association has now avowed its
purpose to be to prevent the payment of all rent
and to effect the subversion of law as administered
in the Queen's name in Ireland;
Now we hereby warn all persons that the said
association, styling itself the Irish National Land
League, or by whatsoever other name it may be
called or known, is an unlawful and criminal asso-
ciation, and that all meetings and assemblies to
carry out or promote its designs or purposes are
alike unlawful and criminal, and will be prevented,
and, if necessary, dispersed by force.
We hereby warn all subjects of Her Majesty the
Queen who may have become connected with the
said association to disconnect themselves there-
from and to abstain from giving further coun-
And we do hereby make known that all the
powers and resources at our command will be em-
ployed to protect the Queen's subjects in Ireland
in the free exercise of their lawful rights and in the
peaceful pursuit of their lawful callings and occu-
pations, to enforce the fulfilment of all lawful obli-
gations, and to save the processes of the law and
the execution of the Queen's write from hindrance
And we do hereby call on all loyal and well af-
fected subjects of the Crown to aid us in upholding
and maintaining the authority of the law and the
supremacy of the Queen in this her realm of Ire-
Dated Dublin Castle, this 20th day of October,

THE LIAGUE'S PROCLAMATION.
The facts regarding the preparation and issue of
the Land League's no rent" manifesto are inter- L
testing. The resolution declaring that no rent
should be paid, was decided on Friday night at a %
private meeting of the Executive. Messrs. Dillon,
O'Kelly and Biggar voted against the step, but t
were in the minority. Mr. T. D. Sullivan and i
others voted for it. The manifesto was prepared i
on Saturday and smuggled into Kilmainham by a t
clerk of Mr. McGough, a solicitor of the League.
A meeting of the prisoners was held during recre- R
action time, when Mr. Parnell, Mr. Brennan, Mr.
Sexton, Mr. Kettle and others carried the mani-
festo. It was then signed by the members, whose
names were attached and taken out under the noses
of the authorities. Mr. Davitt's authority was ob-
tained through a priest or warder in Portland. The
government'is so angry at the use made of the so-
licitors that it has issued an order that both the i
doctor and solicitors of the prisoners should only 1
visit them in the presence of a warder. Visits of
every kind except those of physicians, are for.-
bidden for six days. Even Mr. Parnell's solicitor t
is refused admittance. Dr. Kenney has written to i
the governor of the jail that if he is subjected to o
this indignity he will no longer attend the jail, I
while the prisoners resolve not to allow the prison i
doctors to attend them. The guards of the prison
have been doubled. Mr. Dorris has been taken i
Dundalk Jail, the authorities desiring that h
should not be able to reveal the doings of the Leagi
outside to the prisoners. His arrest was the in
mediate result of having signed the circular sent t
the League branches, instructing the farmers t
issue bogus mortgages and bills of sale of their
property and interests in their holding to shop
keepers and friends, in order to prevent the land
lords from seizing them for rent. This reckless an
outrageous step was immediately discovered by th
Government,fand, with the no rent" manifesto
hurried the declaration of the illegality of th
ARCHBISHOP CROKE'S REBUKE.
DUBLIN, Oct. 20.-Archbishop Croke has writ
ten a public letter entirely disapproving of th
Land League manifesto of no rent. The following
is the letter:-
THunOLs, Oct. 19.-I have just read with the ut
most pain and indeed with absolute dismay a mani
festo issued by the leading patriots incarcerated ii
Kilmainham Jail and publicly proclaimed to the
country from the Land League Rooms, Saokville
street. Against the committal of the people of thi
country, even under still more exciting and critical
circumstances than the present, to the doctrine of
non-payment of rent, but for a certain specified
time, I must and hereby do enter my solemn pro.
test. At no time an enrolled member of the League,
I have been a steadfast, uncompromising supporter
of its public policy as a whole, believing the same
to be thoroughly legal, constitutional and calcu.
lated to lead to great national results. I am pre-
cisely of the same opinion still, but I have invari-
ably and unequivocally stated that I stood out for
fair rents, and nothing more; for the safe foothold
of the agricultural classes upon the Irish soil, that
they should be wholesomely fed, fairly clothed and
suitably lodged and that the absolute repudiation
of rent, should it ever find public expression in Ire-
land would meet with no sympathy from me. Such
are my views. I regret to have been obliged to
say so much.
HOLDING To THB ORIGINAL PLATFORM.
I hold to the original platform of the Irish Na-
tional Land League. There is no more reason for
abandoning it now than there was when Davitt
took possession of his cell in Portland, or when Dil-
lon, with his two hundred companions, were com-
mitted to Kilmainham Jail. It was a sufficiently
elastic policy. It was a righteous policy, tested by
experience and results. It was a successful policy,
and it welded bishops priests and laymen into one
living brotherhood of national work. It pains me,
then, sorely t ) think that any attempt should now
be made to displace the old lines, especially by the
very men by whom they were so judiciously laid
down. Anyhow I thoroughly believed in the policy
of the past in all its substantial branches, and I
quite as firmly believe that the policy now so im-
petuously recommended to the country instead, be-
sides being condemned on the grounds of principle
and expediency, can lead to nothing but disinte-
gration and defeat.
T. W. Caoxu,
Archbishop of Cashel.
A TERRIBLE BLOW.
The Archbishop's letter is the deadliest blow
which could be struck at the League at the present
moment, for it is a blow fired from within, not from
without. Any one who has watched Archbishop
Croke's attitude for the past two years, his uncom-
promising hostility to landlordism, his antagonism
to the other bishops on the question of agitation,
his sympathy with nationalism and his personal
friendship for Dillon and several other leaders of
the movement, may understand how brave is his
present action and how much pain it must cause
him. His conduct throughout has been dictated by
a desire for the good of the people. Those who
doubted it must be convinced of it now. This last
fearless act will do more to turn the edge of the
Leaguer's drawn sword than the Government could
do in months. It changes the face of affairs com-
pletely. The majority of the priesthood who have
been following him throughout will continue to
follow him, if not so boldly, yet with silent fidelity,
which will bear sure fruit in individual parishes.
It will make every farmer pause before entering up-
on a life and death struggle. He will turn to the
Land Commission which is now in session. If the
decisions of this tribunal are within the bounds of
fairness there can be no doubt of the result.
A Clerical Question.-DUBLIN, Oct. 23.-At the
last meeting of the Central League, Tuesday, Rev.
Michael Keane, D. D., Dublin, priest, was propos-
ed for membership amid deafening applause, he be-
ing a clegyman in the diocese of Archbishop Mc-
Cabe, over whom the incident was considered a
victory. Early next morning Keane was summon-
ed to the Archbishop's residence and peremptorily
given a choice between publicly withdrawing and
apologizing for his indiscretion and disobedience or
submitting to suspension. He declined to apologize
publicly and was suspended on the spot exinformata
con scientia, by the Archbishop, under the powers
conferred by the council of Trent, disgraced, the
priest being not even allowed to say mass.
An Exciting Meeting in Hyde Park.-LONDON,
Oct. 23.-The indignation meeting in Hyde Park to-
day was attended by over 50,000 persons. The
speeches were of an unusual violent character and
were delivered from six platforms. The princi-
pal speakers were Messrs. Barry, O'Donnell and
Finnegan, Home Rule M. P.'s, and Clarke and
Hyndeiman, and Miss Craigen, connected with the
London Democratic Association Resolutions de-
nouncing the "cowardly and lawless action of the
coercion Government in attempting forcibly to
suppress freedom of speech," were unanimously car-
ried. The names "Judas Gladstone" and" Quaker
Bright" especially the latter, were greeted with
groans and shouts of "traitors."
The Trafalgar Meeting a Failure.-LONDON, Oct.
23. -The meeting in Trafalgar Square, last even-
ing, to express indignation at Parnell's arrest, was
a failure, owing to rain. About 1,000 were presence.
After considerable hustling, resolutions condemning
the Government's action were formally declared
LONDON, Oct 21.-In consequence of the pro-
clamation against the Land League, Freeman's
Journal" publishes an advertisement from the
League advising people, while remaining firm, to
abandon for the present all prejudiced meetings
which the government could take advantage of.
DUBLIN, Oct. 21.-It is reported that the Execu-
tive will soon seize the officers of the United Ire.
and," the organ of the Land League, which advises
holders of Bank of Ireland notes to demand gold
to create a run upon the bank. It is stated that
Parnell will be removed to one of the country pri-
sons. Visits to Parnell, O'Kelly, Dillon, Sexton,
Brennan and Kettle have been prohibited for one
LONDON, Oct. 21.-Great pressure is being exert-
ed to obtain from the Pope a strong and clear con-
demnation. of the Land League manifesto.
LIVERPOOL, Oct, 21.-Extra precautions are
being taken at the docks to prevent strangers from
boarding steamers of the American lines.
LoNDON, Oct. 22.-The Duke of Malborough
has made a long and important statement relative
to the Irish crisis. He blames the Government
for permitting the League to fix its fangs upon the
country. Regarding the future, he says, that no
further remedial legislation should be attempted
until order is effectually restored.
THE YORKTOWN CELEBRArION.
The Salute to the Flag of Britaln.
Naw YoRz, Oct. 21.-A prominent feature of the
display at Yorktown yesterday was the salute to
the British flag. About sundown the British flag
was shown on the fore of the Trenton and a gun
fired. Instantly the other ships ran up the same
colors-and gun answers gun along the line, and
from the distant camps down the river come an-
swering explosions telling that the Army joins the
Navy in this unusual and graceful act of courtesy
towards the mother country. Now the yards are
manned and a final salute given the American flag,
in which the two French ships join, and so, with a
hearty greeting to Great Britain, against whose
armies and fleets America's hostile guns clamored
for liberty and independence a hundred years ago,
and to Queen Victoria, who has in this time of sor-
row won a new title to the loving respect of every
American heart, the centennial of the great victory
at Yorktown ends.
The Impression Created in England.
LoNDoN, Oct. 21.-The Times says that English-
men long ago lost the feeling of soreness to take
umbrage at the Yorktown celebration, but they
were unprepared to find the occasion upon which a
British disaster was nominally celebrated serving
to rivet the bonds of union between the two coun-
tries. President Arthur's graceful words and the
grateful regard wherewith he spoke of the Queen
will make a deep impression in the hearts of Eng-
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-Col. Rockwell has re-
ceived a letter from Mrs. Garfield, stating that it is
her wish that the life and appropriate collection of
literary remains of General Garfield shall be pub.
lished, and that it is her~ntention to have this done
at the earliest practicable time.
THE ARCTIC SEAS-RETURN OF
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21.-The revenue cutter
Corwin arrived late last night from the Arctic Seas.
She learned of the loss of three vessels in Gollowin
Bay, Aug. 15. Their names were not ascertained.
The Corwin had very heavy weather in the Arctic.
The steamer while attempting to make a sound land-
ing in Wrangill Land had her rudder disabled, and
was obliged to cut away in breakers to save the
ship. On Chamesso Island she found an astronomi-
cal station bearing the inscription of several British
ships, including H.B.M.S. Blossom, 1826; Herald,
eighteen forty-eight over 1849; Russian-American
Co., expedition 1838.
ST. Jomi's, NoiD., Oct. 19.-The British warship
Druid arrived this morning from Quirpon Harbor,
the locality where the most glaring of all the out-
rages committed this year by the French on the
fishermen-subjects of Great Britain-recently oc-
curred. An investigation has been conducted on
the spot under the management of Commander
Kennedy. Depositions have been taken and affida-
vits setting forth the number and extent of the
outrages and the time and place of their perpetra-
tion. These will be immediately forwarded to the
First Lord of the Admiralty to be finally submit-
ted to the Imperial Government for their consid.
As the Druid steamed through the Narrows (En-
trance to St. John's harbour) this morning the
eyes of the spectators on the shore were attracted
by a most unusual sight. The whole topgallant
fretwork railing around the Quarter of the hand-
some frigate was curtained with cariboo deer skins,
while the quarter deck was strewn with large
spreading antlers, the products of the teeming
hunting grounds in the neighborhood of Hall's
Bay. Commander Kennedy and Major Sir Rere
Price slew thirty head of superb cariboo deer last
week, and the Druid proudly bore the trophies to
St. John's. This terminates the career of the
Druid as flagship of the fishery protection service
on the Newfoundland coast for the current year.
BAND vs. "F." COMPANY, 2ND BATT. R. I. RIFLES.
The Cricket Season has commenced in earnest at
Prospect. Two matches have just been completed
between the Officers and Non-Commissioned Offi-
if the Garrison and one between the Royal Engin-
ers and 2nd Batt. the. Royal Irish Rifles, which
ended in a defeat for the latter. We have now to
record a match played by the above-mentioned
teams on Monday, 24th October. For the want of
practice the scores were very small, although the
natch was played with great spirit. Only two of
he batsmen reached doubled figures, Pvt. Gearns
or F." Company scoring 23 and 13, and Sergt.
fcBride for the Band scoring 11 in the 1st in-
nings. The match ended in a victory for the Band
'eam by 13 runs, the result of which was mainly
lue to the splendid bowling of Corpl. Emery and
