DEAn SIR,-Pray can you tell me what are the J
functions of the "City Fathers" of this pretty.
little Town, the capital of those "isles of beauty"
immortalized in song by Ireland's bard ?
Are they responsible for carrying out the sani-
tary laws which I presume are written in the Mu-
nicipal code of Hamilton, if so, why are not those
laws more rigidly enforced ? and why are the in-
habitants and visitors so frequently regaled with
most offensive smells ? Perhaps the nasal organs
of the "Powers that be" through long years of
experience, in inhaling the perfume of the ever-
lasting onion, have become impervious to other
scents and other odours, and to pass a sink of filth
and stench, which to others might deal disease and
death would only have for them the delight which -ti l. ders
is experienced in change. i O leu 10 IVLcLers

lowing reasons: and Contractors.

A LUCKY ESCAPE FROM DROWNING.
On Wednesday last, Mr. F. B. Smith in the Gig
Boat Britannia" with, a crew of 4 men, left Whale
16 miles North West of Gibbs' Hill Light House,
and whiA appeared to be in distress. The wind
was N. W. at the time, blowing strong,with a heavy
sea. When. the "Britannia" was about three miles
from the shore she carried away her foresail but
soon set it again, bn, when within quarter ofamile
of the vessel, in bringing the boat to the wind, a
heavy sea rolled completely on her, swamping her
and turning her over. All the occupants but one,
John Simons, were fortunate enough to clear the
boat: this man, however, became entangled in one
of the sails and was for some time kept under
water, but with great presence of mind dove from
under the sail, and after a second attempt (the first
time striking his head against the boat) succeeded in
freeing himself from hisperilouspoiton so faras
to get on the bottom of the boat, with Mr. Smith
and the balance of the crew, where they remained
until they were rescued by the "Coquette," in
about a quarter of an hour. After the "Coquette"
succeeded in rescuing the crew it was evident that
she could not possibly swim with the extra weight.
Then the grave question arose what was to be done!
tnnatelv after considerable calling and dipping
their flair they *ucoeedd in attracting the attention
of Pilot Swan in the Gig Boat Maggie," who im-
mediately came to their assistance and took on
board a part of the rescued crew.
We regret to say that the fine gig "Britannia,
which was of 30 feet keel and valued at 50 and
owe UflW fr. Daniel D. Simons, drifted to sea.

Horrible Heathen Barbarism-The Blood of 200

October 16, state that information has been receiv-

young girls for the purpose of using their blood for
mixing mortar for the repair of one of the state
buildings. The report of the massacre was receiv-

victims. It receives some confirmation also in the
fact that such wholesale massacres are known to be
a custom with the King.

NIGHT ATTACK ON H. M. S. NORTH-
An attack somewhat similar to that which took
place last year, and a notice of which appeared in
our columns at that time, was organized and carried
out on yesterday week. The Northampton was ly-
ing in Murray's Anchorage, and had made all the
necessary preparations for defending herself from a
combined attack by the boats of the Squadron now
here, including her own two Thornycroft torpedo
boats. She was visited and inspected by the om-
mander-in-Chiefon themorningof the day, who went
down in the Forester for that purpose. The attack
ing force under the command of Captain Kennedy,
R.N., H. M. S. Druid, consisted of two 60 feet
Thornycroft torpedo boats, armed with whiteheads,
two steam launches with spar torpedos, and a
number of other boats, (steam cutters, pulling
boats, dinghies, &c.,) numbering in all 21. This
flotilla left the Dockyard Cambre about 2 p.m. and
proceeded the various divisions in tow of steam
boats, to a position off Clarence Cove, where the Ad-
miral, with Lady M'Clintock, and staff, were wait-
ing in his galley to see the boats pass. The ren-
dezvous appointed was Bailey's Bay and a novel
sight waspresented to the dwellers near-by the an-
choring o this fleet of boats in the Bay. Supper
and singing appeared to be the chief occupation
during the time of waiting the favorable moment to
attack, the steam launches having completed the
other boats with water proceeded to St. Georges to
fill up themselves and returned just in time to tow
out the small craft. The flotilla left the Bay about
7'30 p.m., and the Divisional officers having receiv-
ed their final orders, the various divisions dispersed
and proceeded to their allotted stations, about this
time heavy clouds were welcomed by the attacking
force and seen with dismay by the defenders; rain
and a squall succeeded and under their protection
the force advanced on the ship from all quarters.
Lighted tar-barrels were now to be seen drifting
down before a strong breeze towards the ship and
the boats on the starboard side opened fire as they
got within range. The electric lights now were to
be seen flashing in all directions and as boat after
boat came within its range a heavy fire from Gat-
lings, Nordenfelts and riflemenwas poured on them.
This attack however was only a feint to allow the
spar-torpedo boats and Whiteheads to approach un.
seen on the Port side. As soon as an opportunity
offered the boats dashed in with varied success. The
attack occupied about an hour when the bugle
sounded cease firing, and the boats retired and ren-
dezvouzed at the Forrester, lying at anchor a short
distance off. We hear that both sides claim the
victory and we imagine the umpires will have a
difficult task before them to decide.
With their usual hospitality the Officers of the
Flagship entertained their late opponents with a
capital supper, when friends and foes sat down to-
gether and fought the battle over again. The
following morning in tow of the Forester the boats
returned to the Cambre, and a most singular ap-
pearance the boats and crews presented, the boats
having been blacked inside and out as well as the
men's hands and faces. The Flagship soon after-
wards came steaming slowly up with her spars and
nets still out, presenting to those on shore a most
extraordinary appearance: in the afternoon having
disincumbered herself of her defences she proceeded
into the Cambre.
A SAD DROWNING ACCIDENT.
An Inquest was held at St. David's Island on
Friday evening last, by Denis Tuoker, Esqr.,
Coroner for the Eastern district, on view of the
body of Mr. Joseph Benjamin Minors, who was
found dead in the waters of St. George's Harbour
on thle afternoon of same day. It appeared in evi-
dence that the deceased left the Cut in his open
boat the "Royal Alfred," supposed under sail, soon
after 9 o'clock on the previous evening for his home
on St. David's Island. He was alone, being dis-
appointed at not meeting a person who promised to
accompany him. His not having reached St. Da-
vid's that evening or the ioliowing morning, caus-
ed no uneasiness among his friends, as it was sup-
posed that he had gone to Hamilton to see his wife,
who was there on a visit, she being in ill-health.
At about eleven o'clock however a party in a boat
when near the Old Hide" saw something floating
near them and on going to ascertain what it was
discovered it to be a boat's mast and sails. The
mast was painted blue, the jib was furled and the
sheets made fast to the lower part of the mast, the
mainsail was spread. On these articles being tak-
en out of the water one of the party in the boat at
once stated his belief that they belonged to Mr.
Minors. This cercumstance, and the subsequent
finding of Mr. Minor's hat and the laden board ol
his boat near Smith's Island, naturally led to
searching parties being organized and a deligent
examination of the waters round Smith's Island
and near the Forts, made. At about 4 p.m.,
the party under the management of Mr. Alexander
Minors, was successful in discovering the body-it
was laying at the bottom of the sea, face down
-and about 12 feet from the northern side of
Smith's Island. It was quickly gotten up and
conveyed to St. David's.
It seems that soon after the deceased must have left
the Cut for his home, a heavy gust of windpassed over
the Eastern portion of the Islands, that being
alone, in attempting to furl the sail, the boat cap-
sized and being heavily ballasted, quickly went
to the bottom, leaving the deceased to struggle for
his life as best he could: though an expert swimmer
he, in all probability, was'seized with cramp, to
which it is said he was subject, and soon met his fate.
The verdict of the Jury was in accordance with the
The deceased, who was about 82yearsof age, was
much respected by all who knew him. He was a
ship-carpenter by trade and took great pride in
his calling. He planned, built, and sailed some of
the fastest yachts belonging to the Colony. He
was buried at St. David's at 4 p.m., on Saturday,
and the attendance at his funeral was very numer-
ous: being a Freemason and an Odd Fellow,
the following Lodges were well represented in
the procession:-Hannibal Lodge, No 224; Vic-
toria and Albert 1,027; Alexandrina 1,026 ; and
THEATRE ROYAL, PROSPECT.
On Saturday and Monday evenings the 12th
and 14th instant, the Amateur Dramatic Club of
the 15th Company Royal Engineers repeated their
performance of Boots at the Swan," and No-
body's Child," before a numerous, fashionable and
appreciative audience at the Theatre Royal, Pros-
In the performance of the Farce we noticed in
some of the characters a lack of spirit due to the
piece; but this was no doubt owing to a little ner-
vousness on the part of the performers, which will
wear away with practice; but the acting of Cor-
poral Jacobs as Miss Moonshine, and Sapper Dow-
ker as the pretty housemaid (Sally Jenkins), was
exceedingly good, who, together with the deaf
" Boots" kept the house in a roar.
The piece of the evening, "Nobody's Child," was
certainly rendered extremely well, the acting of
Sergeant Carrington, C. &. T. Corps, as "Joe," left
nothing to be desired.
Sapper Dowker, as Patty Lavrock, was admir-
able ; the Village Postmaster (Sapper Smith) sus-
tained his character with vigour and was most,
amusing. Sapper Knott was very successful as the
Miss Lucy wanted a little more spirit, but per-
haps she was shy; a fault which will mend with a
little more experience. In the last Act in the Scene
in her room, more energy was required, both by
herself and admirer, to make the acting more effec-
tive; but taking the whole piece, it was very credit-
ably performed, and we hope to.see them again be-
fore the Public, when we feel sure they will meet
with a cordial reception from bumper houses.
We must not omit to afford a word of praise to
the scene painter (Corporal Stammer), whose work
was extremely well executed; Tregarvon Castle,"
the "Corn Field," and "Fairy Well" scenes, espe-
cially deserve notice, for their very effective and al-
most natural appearance.
The Music rendered by a portion of the Band of
the 2nd Battalion Royal Irish Rifles, under Mr.
Brown, was admirably selected, and played with
that beauty and effectiveness for which the Band of
this distinguished Regiment is noted; more especi-
ally the scene where Corporal Jacobs as Sir
Robert Tregarvon" is surrendering the Old Castle
to the Mortgagees, when the touching strains of
"Home Sweet Home," were played, which no
doubt brought to to the memories of many present
the scenes of their childhood.
To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
DEAR SIm,-In your issue of the 8th inst. you
were good enough to insert a letter of mine in answer
to a correspondent in the Colonist," signing him-
self "Truthful." That writer has again given him-
self an airing in your contemporary, has made his
bow, and has retired. Before leaving the stage
however, he asked me a few questions respecting
the Schools' Act. I would therefore beg you to in-
sert a few lines from me for the second andlast time
in answer to this enquirer (?). If you are willing to
find me space I will endeavor to do as I did before
-state a fact,-and leave the use of high sounding
but meaningless phrases to my interrogator.
It would be presumptuous of me to set myself up
as an exponent of the Act. There are others who
are familiar with its working, and better able to
answer such questions as those put in wilful ignor-
ance by Truthful." But I can read the Act, and
understand its meaning; and the sooner "Truth-
ful" does the same, the better for the few news-
paper readers who wade through his long-winded
letters, and find an editor's postscript at the end,
declaring his ignorance of the subject he has taken
in hand. It is evident from a careful reading of
the Act, that the benefits of the measure extend to
all who like to avail themselves of them. Neither
the poor white children, nor any other children of
the colony are excluded from participating in the
advantages bestowed by the School s Act. But
"Truthful" must remember that before the chil-
dren of any Parish can be benefitted by those ad-
vantages, a school must be started, and the services
of a teacher secured. I believe I am correct in say-
ing that the majority of the coloured children in
Devonshire parish are at present attending no school
whatever, as the School committee has not done
It is pleasant to agree with one's opponents,
"Truthful" complains that I did not make "the
feeblest effort to prove how there can (in fairness)
be a "public" school for white children in this
mixed community of white and coloured people."
It would indeed have been foolish of me to have
attempted such a thing, after I had stated that the
use of the term "public" as applied to our schools
is incorrect. There is no such thing as a public
school in "Bermuda," and nobody knows the fact
better than "Truthful." I now leave "Truthful"
and his advice to himself. He has shown that he
is devoid of earnest purpose. He does not want the
information he pretends to seek. Let him find other
exponents of the Act and its working, as the con-
vincing a man against his will, is not the business
mendation. The Public will do well to support this
Company which possess considerable dramatic ta-
In the piece selected for their opening perform-
ance, "Nobody's Child," the management wisely
steered clear of" the terrible "Blood and Murder"
scenes which are too often crowded into every act
of the Dramas written for transportive Theatres.
The situations in the plot are indeed sufficiently in-
teresting, and there are two sudden deaths, one
pointing to the moral that too much Rum is a dis-
turber of equilibrium; the other leading to the
belief that "Woman, lovely woman," when she
meddles with firearms is a dangerous creature.
Very high praise is due to the "lovely women" in
this play. Actors labor under tremendous difficul-
ties in impersonating ladies, but I assure you that
there was scarcely an action whioh raised a smile.
Captain Lazonby's ?art, that of the gentleman
villain, is a difficult role, but was very well sustain-
ed, the constant action with the riding whip was
perhaps uneasy, and looked in some instances like a
threat of personal castigation, which even Captain
Lazonby would not venture to use towards a lady.
