COLONIST please copy.


Mn. EDITOR, SIR,-Allow me a small space in
your valuable paper, to call the attention of the
public to the dangerous state which several portions
of our road in Southampton are in at present, for
the want of a Guard Wall or Rail. There are two
places in particular that it behoves the public
to look after-one at the bottom of the hill below
the road leading to St. Anne's Church-the other
near the road leading to Evans' Bay. The last
named place is one to which immediate attention
should be paid.
Hoping that something will be done,
I am, Sir, yours,

NOVA SCOTTA HISTORIC( AL SOCIETY.
We notice that at a Meeting of this Society held
at Halifax, N.S., on the 3rd instant, the Secretary,
Mr. Bulmer, read a communication from Mr. Robt.
Ward, of Bermuda, accompanying a complete file
of the Royal Gazette of that place, published by his
father, the late Edmund Ward, who was a native
of Halifax, N. S., and Proprietor of the old Free
Press there. A communication was also read from
Miss Ellen A. Ward, of New York, a daughter of
the late Edmund Ward, announcing her intention
of placing with the Society ten volumes of the Free
Press. On motion of his Honor the Lieut. Gover-
nor and Mr. William Gossip, the thanks of the
Society were voted to the donors for their valuable
gifts. The Secretary writes to Mr. Ward as fol-
lows :-" The volume you so kindly sent me is now
bound elegantly and under glass case, there to re-
main I trust for centuries a monument of a Nova
Scotian abroad, and containing much relating to
the Queen's Dominions in Canada. We know ab-
solutely nothing about Bermuda. By all means let
us exchange books and documents of all kinds.
There are thousand% of worthy people in Canada
who should and who could winter in Bermuda, did
theybut knowof its wonderful climate andscenery."
Mr. Ward, informs us that he will be happy to re-
ceive and forward to the Society files of news-
papers, journals, Government publications, alma-
nacks,. pamphlets, books of all kinds relating to
Bermuda, or any British Colony, and relating to
the American Colonies before the Revolution-an
acknowledgement of which will be duly sent to
the donors.
Mr. Edmund Ward was King's Printer in Ber-
muda for some period during the second decade of
this present century and the circumstances which
caused his removal from office, will be found record-

The PICTURE of the late PRESIDENT GARFIELD for
QUEEx VICTORIA is said to have been forwarded
through the State Department, Washington,
on the 28th ultimo. It is of cabinet size and
is described as bearing a striking resemblance
to the late President, the eyes particularly being
life-like and expressive. The photograph'was enclos-
ed in. an envelope bordered with mourning, address-
ed to Queen Victoria, and having the name of Mrs.
Garfield written on the lower corner. It was en-
cased in a box lined with dark blue satin velvet,
which was again encased in a mahogany box.
Severe gales have extended from both sides of

There were several steam ships overdue at New

The new pier at Folkestone was swept away as
was also the greater part of the pier at Ventnor.
There were many wrecks along the coast and much
damage on shore.
The steam yacht Lucernte collided with the Aus-

former sunk. Seven persons were drowned.
Her Majesty's ship Valorous sought refuge at
Queenstown, having been unable to enter Bantry

cutter, gig and jibboom.
The steamer City of Berlin, which arrived at
Queenstown on 28th from New York, experienced
terrific weather. Her captain and second officer were
swept off the bridge and the latter was injured. The
saloon was flooded to the depth of three feet.
Commander Cheyne of the British Navy who has
made a passage from England in the face of the

MARRIAGE OF BISHOP JONES.
(From the Halifax Morning Chronicle of Nov. 23 )
There was a large gathering at St. Luke's Cathe-
dral yesterday of perons desirous of seeing the mar-
riage of Right Rev. Llewellyn Jones, D.D., Lord
Bishop of Newfoundland, to Miss Elizabeth Alice,
second daughter of His Honor Lieut.-Governor
Archibald. The ceremony was performed by His
Lordship the Bishop of Nova Scotia, assisted by
Rev. Dr. Hill, of St. Paul's. The bride's dress was
an ivory white satin train over Spanish lace petti-
coat, orange blossoms at neck and sleeves; wreath
of, orange blossoms and myrtle and tulle veil com-
pletely covering dress; pearl neck-lace, brooch and
ear-rings, gifts of the bridegroom's sister.
The bridesmaids were: 1st, Miss Mary Archibald,
sister of the bride; 2nd, Miss F. Binney, daughter of
His Lordship the Bishop of Nova Scotia; 3rd, Miss
Lena Henry, daughter of Mr. Justice Henry, of the
Supreme Court of Canada. '
The bridesmaid's dresses were of ivory white
gauze, trimmed with Spanish lace and water lilies.
Hats, Spanish lace, turned up with dark green and
trimmed with water lilies. Each carried a basket of
lilies, and wore a gold bracelet, gift of the bride-
groom.
Among the very many valuable and handsome pre-
sents presented to the bride and bridegroom the
groom received from his various relations several
gifts of money, ranging from 1,000 stg. down.
GurmEu's TiAIx.-Mr. Scoville closed his open-
in" for the defence in Guiteau's case on the 23rd
ultimo, amid, it is said, continued interruptions by
the prisoner. A number of witnesses testified
concerning the mental condition of Guiteau, among
them Dr. Rae, of Wisconsin, who pronounced him
"insane."
In an article on the responsibility of crime"
bearing on Guiteau's case, the "New York Herald"
of the lst instant, remarks:-
Guitean's case presents the latest attempt to take
this abusive advantage of the merciful disposition
of the law. It presents some perversions not before
seen in this sort of morbid history. He appears to
be himself the author of the theory that he is insane,
yet he'adheres closely enough to the, characteristic
of the insane generally who deny their malady; for
while he rests his defence on the ground of insanity
he wants it to be understood that he is not mad in
the common and popular sense of the word, but
only mad in the legal sense. Indeed, so far from
claiming that his wits are generally at fault, he
* wants to be thought a very bright and clever fel.
low He wants, in short, to be just insane enough
to escape the hangman and to be sane enough to
a to enjoy. applause for the clever trickery by which
he did it. There is, perhaps, enough in his history
and in his demeanor to fill the mind of any average
juror with doubt as to his mental balance; but
when he holds himself that he is insane as to those
points on which responsibility must turn, but sane
enough otherwise, he seems to us to have reasoned
his case backward, for on all the points of the know-
ledge of the nature of his act and of his capacity to
restrain himself his case is as clear as that of any
recorded murderer, while as to the popular sense of
sanity he is not completely strait. He is what the
people call crank-brained, addle-pated, daft-a fel-
low, in short, with a bee in his bonnet; but he has
,full control of his reason, such as it is, and there

the crime of murder.

To the Editor of the Royal Gazette.
SIR,-Since the introduction of Steamboats in
our waters, facilities of travelling and easy commu-
nication of friends with each other have been much
enhanced by the rapidity with which one can be
wafted from Island to Island, and to any place of
rendezvous whither inclination or business may lead.
But every mode of locomotion has, more or less, its
drawbacks and dangers, especially where rivalry
exists; for then danger is increased twofold. Now
if we impose checks on land conveyances for the
preservation of life, no one will deny that Steam-
boats, or rather their owners, and officers, should
be held under some legal obligation with respect to
the number of passengers they may take on board;
and this obtains the more reasonably, as travellers
by sea are as two to one to travellers by land. I was
forcibly reminded of this necessity, when on the day
of the Races at Shelly Bay, a steamer was seen to
embark an overwhelming number of men, women,
and children, closely packed together from stem to
stern; some of whom afterwards confessed they
were filled with distressing anxiety and terror dur-
ing the entire passage. And can we wonder at this ?
Witness the awful catastrophy from this very cause,
i.e., overcrowding, which happened but a few
months back on the Mississippi, U. S., when scores
of unhappy people found a watery grave, and hun-
dreds of relatives and friends were thrown into
mourning.
It is unnecessary to pursue this subject further,
or to enlarge on the perils to which travellers in
our community would be liable; unless some check
or remedy be interposed, that will tend to prevent
those fearful accidents which time may bring along
with it.
Having brought this subject to public notice I
leave it to the consideration of those whom it may
more immediately concern.

NAVAL RECONSTRUCTION.
WASHINeTON, Nov. 30.-The report of the Naval
Advisory Board on the reorganization of the Navy
was made public to.day. The board reports that
after a thorough investigation they find only 32 un-
armed vessels on the Navy list which are either avail-
able for active service, or which can be made avail-
able, at a cost low enough to warrant ths expend.
ture. Seventy vessels, in the opinion of the board,
are necessary to perform effectively at present the
work of the Navy. They therefore recommend the
building of 38 unarmored cruising vessels, and in ad-
dition to these 5 steel rams and 5 torpedo boats for
coast and harbour defense.
QuEBEC, Nov. 28.-The temperature early th i
morning was 15 degrees below zero.

ARCTIC EXPLORATION.


Loasos, November 28.-The Times says: "A
memorial will be presented to the President of the
Geographical Society-to-day asking the society to
urge the Government to despatch an expedition to
the Artie Ocean for the relief of Mr. Leigh Smith.
While we shall be far from discouraging the appli-
cation which the Colonial Office is stated to be
making to the Hudson's Bay Company to prose-
cute inquiries in regard to the white men seen by
Esquimaux near the Mackenzie River. There is
only too much reason to fear that the Jeannette
with her brave crew must be added to the list of
vessels which have perished in the Arctic.

Mr. Clement Scott in his suit for libel against the
London Referee, has buen awarded a verdict for
41,500 damages.
The man, William Jones, who attempted to kill
Gaiteau when in a van going from the Court house
to his prison, has been admitted to bail in the sum
of $5,000.
Three Bishops of Spain interpellated the govern-

get no relief, until I commenced using the BLOOD
SYRUP. I was about to give it up because imme.

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
-ualter. I invariably found, however, that this dizzy
fsjling soon passed away, my nervous system was
tranquilized, and the catarrhal poison removed by
the medicine. 1 have been entirely cured by your

Remiarkable letter
FROM

The Speaker of the House.
MOUSE O BEP rSINTATIY!S,
February 12,1881. f
For the first time In my life I am induced to
give a testimonial. Noticing In some paper an
advertisement of Dr. Scott's Electric Hair rush,
I sent $8.00 for one and find it Indeed a remark-
able brush. My wife has for years suffered with
headaches. The brush cures them at once.
Several friends have used it for headaches, and
it has never ailed.- My wife was also getting pre-
maturely bald, but the brush has entirely stopped
the falling hair and started a new growth. luse
It to remove dandruff, and it works like a charm.
Five times the cost would not buy my brush if I
could not replace it. To-day I bought of
McAlmont, Druggist of this place, two brushesto
send to friends who have tried mine and requested
me to buy for them. Col. Ponder, Mayor of Wal-
nut Ridge, was attacked by a severe case of sick
headache while at my house. He was very sick.
My wife proposed to try the brush, which he finally
consented to do, with no faith tI It, however. In
three minutes he said he never felt better in his
life, and directed me to send him a brush. I have
authorized McAlmont,the druggist, to use my name
In recommending it. Yours truly,
GEORGE THORNBURGH,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Arch Mason, and past Grand Master of Masons of

DearSir :-For over five years I have been bald
on the top of my head. I recently bought one ot

tonishment, after using It only four or five times
the hair came out on this bald spot right thick.
Accept my best thanks.
