NOTICE.

THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE desires to
give notice that a supply of TOBACCO
SEED of the finest kinds procurable in Cuba
has j ust been received from Havanah, and will
be distributed to all persons desirous of culti-
vating Tobacco in this Colony.
The Board trusts that as many persons as
possible may try the experiment of Tobacco
cultivation, as fine Tobacco such as is likely to
be produced from the seed now procured, sells
at a very high price, and its cultivation if it
succeeded would prove highly remunerative.
The experiment need not be tried on large scale
in any one spot. Every one who can spare a
few roods of Land might make a sufficient
trial.
Packets of Seed may be had on application at
the PUBLIC LIBRARY, HAMILTON, at the ASSIS-
TANT RECEIVER GENERAL'S OFFICE, ST. GEOR-
GES, at R. TYNES, DEVONSHIRE, and at the OF-
FICE OF THE ROYAL GAZETTE," HAMILTON.
It is hoped that early application will be made
for this seed, as the sowings must be made du-
ring the present or next month if it is desired to
secure a crop during the present year.

Captain Rizro and the crew (13 in number) of the
Italian Brigantine L'Avvernire, which was brought
into the Port of St. George on the 30th ultimo, by
a crew from the Ship Black Prince, found aban-
doned at Sea-were taken from that vessel on the
19th ultimo, in Lat. 30-6 Long. 65-55 by the Brit-
ish Barque W. E. Heard and landed in New York
on the 31st ultimo. Capt. R. reports that he was
rescued from his ship after he had done everything
he could to save her-she was leaking too badly for
him to remain with her. The Avvernire was from
Milazzo (January 14) with a cargo of fruit, bound
to New York and was owned by B. Grolhino of that
place.
The A. was quite tight when brought into St.
George's, the three holes which had been bored in
her bottom having been plugged.
Mr. Benjamin Trott, Pilot, has attentively sent us
the following report of a vessel boarded by him to the
South East of these Islands on Sunday last:--" Aus-
trian Brigantine Maria Fanny, Capt. Roindech, from
Pascagoula bound to Ghent, out 20 days.-All well on
board.
The Barque Eliza Barss, Captain Hollis, arrived at
St.Georges on Sunday morning last, with a full cargo
of cattle in prime order. She left New York on the
1st instant, the day after the severe gale which did
such mischief along the coast. We are indebted to
Capt. Hollis for files of New York papers of the 1st iust.

GRAND FIELD DAY AT PROSPECT.


The morning of Saturday, April 5th, the day ap.
pointed by His Excellency the Commander-in-Chief
for holding a review of the troops stationed at
Prospect Camp, dawned gloomy and threatening;
but as the bright sun rose in the heavens he dis-
pelled every trace of cloud and rain, and gave pro-
mise of one of the most glorious days that bless
these sunny isles. A gentle breeze from the north
fanned the waving branches of the cedars, and waft-
ed a refreshing coolness over all the landscape.
Nature seemed bent to enhance, by a lavish spread
of all her beauties, one of the proudest spectacles
that gladden the heart of every true and loyal
I English subject, the display of the brave defend-
ers of England's honor and glory, in all the pomp
and circumstance of war." The troops that were
to take part in the manoeuvres of the day, were the
XIXth, Princess of Wales' Own Regiment, under
command of Colonel P. D. Vigors, and a strong
contingent of the Royal Engineers under command
of Colonel Gordon. Shortly after 10 o'clock, the
men fell in, in review order, on the parade ground
of their respective corps, and after being inspected
by Officers commanding companies, and being serve.
ed with ten rounds of ammunition per man, were
marched to the Cricket ground, preceded by a live-
ly quickstep performed by the excellent band of the
XIXth. On arriving on the ground, they were re-
ceived by Colonel Morrison, Commanding R. E.,
attended by Lieut. Chauncey XIXth, as aide-de-
camp, and Capt. Grieve, XLVIth, as Brigade Maj-
or. Colonel Morrison then taking supreme com-
mand formed the troops into three battalion, No. 1,
or right battalion of Royal Engineers, under Col-
onel Gordon; No. 2, or centre, under Colonel Vigors,
and No. 3, or left, under Capt. Traill, being com-
posed of the XIXth Regt. Thus the three columns,
in open order, and, with their front facing west,
stood awaiting the arrival of His Excellency the
General. Seldom has it been our pleasure to wit-

ness a gayer scene; crowds of eager spectators had
gathered on the road over-looking the cricket
ground to view the coming show, and a line of car-
riages flanked and faced the troops.
Among those who had assembled, we were glad
to see numerous groups of our fair "American
Cousins" who, by the gay and lively enjoyment of
all that was passing, added much to the pleasure of
the day. Of the Military at present resident in
these islands we noticed-Mrs. Morrison, Mrs. Gor-
don, Mrs. Rawson, Mrs. Traill, Miss Sinclair, and
many others whose names we regret we could not
obtain. Mingling with our military friends and as
heartily enjoying all the amusements of the day,
were many of our leading civilian families. Of the
officers of the garrison not taking part in the pro-
ceedings we noticed, Col. Lilley, Asst. Commissary
General, Dr. McCutchan, Lieut. Nicholls R.E.,
Revd. Mr. Hardy, Chaplain to the Forces, and
others.
A very few minutes after eleven o'clock, His Ex-
cellency, Sir R. M. Laffan rode on to the ground,
attended by his Aide-de-Camp, Lieut Carpenter
87th R. I. F., and accompanied by Lady Laffan,
Miss Laffan, and Miss Laura Laffan, all handsome-
ly mounted, and was received by a general salute.
The General, attended by the Staff, then rode along
the ranks and inspected the brigade; after which
the XIXth regiment prepared to "Troop the
Queen's Colors" while the Royal Engineers changed
front to the left on the left company, bringing
them at right angles with the XIXth and facing
south, so that they could the better witness this
interesting ceremony.
The Trooping of the Colors" is one of the most
effective displays of military pomp and parade, and
when, as on the present occasion, it is carried on
with precision and decorum in every detail, is a
grand and imposing sight. We have been, before,
gratified by seeing this fine regiment perform the
same evolution, on the Queen's birthday, while they
were quartered at St. Georges's and then, as now,
we were informed by competent military authori-
ties, that they were second to none in the execution
of this manoeuvre. Before proceeding with the ac-
count of the brigade manoeuvres that followed we
owe it in justice to ourselves, our military readers
and the gallant officer commanding, to state that
our knowledge of military tactics is not sufficient to
follow in detail, the whole series of intricate ma-
noeuvres that were so admirably carried out, but we
will endeavour to the best of our ability to give a
sketch of some. The first brigade movement
was the March Past" in various formations.
Formed in columns of double companies, the troops
marched past the General; then they changed
ranks and counter-marched in mass of quarter co-
lumns; then deploying into line of quarter columns
they again marched past in this formation. Noth-
ing could surpass the steady and soldierlike bearing
of the troops in each of these movements, marching
to the old familiar quick step of "The Bonny
White Rose," with their long steel.bayonets glitter-
ing in the rays of the midday sun, with their snow
white helmets and scarlet tunics they advanced
with a free and elastic step, in serried ranks like a
living, moving wall. Where all did so well it
might not be invidious to state that the second
double company elicited the eager approbation and
warm encomiums of the fair spectators, and, if any,
they may, on that account, be considered to have
acquitted themselves the best. Colonel Morrison
then formed the troops into line and ordered them
to prepare to receive cavalry and in that position,
they, for the first time, opened fire by three rounds
of independent firing. These manoeuvres were suc-
ceeded in quick succession by others equally brilli.
ant in appearance and perfect in execution; but we


must not forget to mention so pleasing a sight as
when the troops formed battalion squares, and pre-
pared again to sustain a sudden attack of imagin-
ary cavalry and then retired in column of double
companies from both flanks in rear of centre of
brigade. Then forming line to left on left half
brigade they fired four rounds independently.
When the rattle of the musketry began in real
earnest the horses of some of the staff created con-
siderable amusement by the elegant way in which
they conducted an impromptu ballot; but we have
great pleasure in complementing Lady and Miss
Laffan for the easy and graceful manner in which
they managed their steeds, which appeared always
"in hand and perfectly accustomed to the work.
The troops here retired and prepared to ex-
ecute a charge in line. At the word of command
on came the long extended line with flashing bay-
onets carried at the charge, while the wild hurrahs
from the deep throats and hearty lungs of full 600
English soldiers together with the rolling of drums
and hoarse notes of the bugle called to our memo-
ries those heroic days, when at Waterloo, at Alma,
at Inkermann and beneath the scorching blaze of
an Eastern sun, the cold steel of our noble British
infantry has covered itself with imperishable re-
nown, and is still, and will long remain, a terror to
our enemies. The troops then retired to some dis-
tance, and were there drawn up in line of quarter
column at 12 paces distance in which formation they
marched to about the centre of the ground in re-
view order, headed by the officers and colors, and
terminated the day's performance by a general salute
in which position the brigade was photographed.
The troops returned to barracks and were dismissed
to their quarters at about a quarter past one. Thus
ended a most enjoyable forenoon's entertainment
with which everybody declared themselves satisfied.
In the first place the General declared himself sa-
tisfied and praised the behaviour of the troops
throughout the day's exercises. All the fair ones
present praised the officers, troops, &c. The Offi-
cers and men were delighted at such an attendance
of beauty and fashion and praised them heartily in
return.


THE JOURNEY OF HER MAJESTY THE
QUEEN.
The greatest interest naturally attaches in Eng-
land to the journey of Queen Victoria to Italy, and
the newspapers have lengthy telegrams from Paris
recording her doings. Her Majesty arrived in Pa.
ris from England on the 28th ultimo. On the fol.
lowing day she received President Grevy, Minister
Waddington and ex-President MacMahon during
the afternoon, and afterward started for Italy, ac-
cording to the programme already announced. To
meet the Queen, the Duke of Aosta, ex-King of
Spain, has left Rome for Laveno, on Lake Mag-
giore, to welcome Her Majesty to Italy. A great
number of Italians and English tourists are making
their way to the Italian lakes.

BERMUDA HUNT.-We have been requested to say
that the Hunt next week will be on Easter Tuesday,
and not on Thursday as previously stated.

THE SYNOD-LAY DELEGATES.
The Synod Act of 1878 became law on the 22nd
March ultimo, when Her Majesty's assent was
made known by proclamation. The first election
of Lay Representatives made by the Church Ves-
try of each Parish and the Vestry of Trinity Church
must be held within six week, and the first meeting
of Synod to elect a Bishop must be held in not less
than one month nor more than two months on the
summons of the Senior Rector, at present the Rec-
tor of Paget and Warwick. The probabilities are
that the elections will be held by the new Vestries
to be appointed at Easter. It is highly desirable
that the best representative men should be selected,
and the great body of Churchmen should bestir
themselves in order to make the best of it and to
secure for the Church in these Islands the benefit
of the highest counsels. We trust that each Parish
will be fitly represented.

QW The Crop season has now fairly opened.
The Flamborough, to run in conjunction with Canima
thus making a weekly line, arrived yesterday. We
trust our farmers will be less anxious to afford the
steamers freight than to earn for themselves good
returns by only packing up the best quality of pro-
duce for export.

Our readers will be much pleased to observe by a
Proclamation of His Excellency the Governor
which appears in the Official Column of to-day's
Gazette, revoking and annulling that of the 25th
Feby. last, which declared the island of St. Thomas
to be an Infected Place. The R. M. Steamrr Beta,
on her last trip from St. Thomas (Wednesday last),
brought a certificate from the British Consul at
that place to the effect, that that Island was at the
date thereof, and had been for some time before,
free of Yellow Fever. The Health Officer for iho
East End, on the receipt of this document admitted
the Beta to pratique.

The Revd. C. J. Branch of Codrington College,
Barbados, has been collated to the Archdeaconcy of
Antigua, including the Islands of Antigua, Barbu-
da, Dominica and Monserrat and also commission-
ed to discharge his duties, appertaining to his of-
fice in the Anglican Churches at St. Bartholomews
Saba, St. Thomas, Santa Cruz and Porto Rioo.

AN ENORMOUS EGG.-A gentleman brought to our
Office on Friday last a Duck Egg of a monstrous size-
it weighed 5 ounces, it measured in length 4 1-10th
inches, and in circumference 6 and inch.s The duck
which laid it, was of the common description and
size and quite young.

PERSONAL.-Mr. Oswald Jones, Manager of the
Colonial Bank, Barbados, so well known to the
Commercial community of this island, having held
the responsible position in former years, of Mana-
ger of the Colonial Bank, is at present on a visit
here, being on his way to Europe, on leave of ab-
sence, accompanied by Mrs. Jones. We welcome
Mr. & Mrs. Jones to our island, wishing them a
pleasant stay here.-St. Thomas Times, March 19.

HALIFAX, March 80.-It is understood the iron.
clad Bellerophon. flag-ship of Admiral Inglefleld,
will be relieved from this station in May, and pro-
Sceed to England.

A Seaman belonging to H. M. S. Pert fell from
the mast head to the deck of that vessel at Jamaica, a
distance of 40 feet, and was instantly killed,

SA few days ago the cable informed us of the eleva.-
tion of Canon Lightfoot to the See of Durham. The
Vacancy thus created in the canonry of St. Paul's,
has been filled by the appointment of Prof. Stubbss
the Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford.
The appointment has little if any political signifi-
cance, although Lord Beaconsfield is no doubt re-
sponsible for it. While Prof. Stubbs' political sym-
pathies have always been with the Conservative
Party, his reputation is the growth of years of toil,
and is neither that of a leading ecclesiastic nor of an
active politician. His promotion is, indeed, the ho-
mage rendered to letters and learning by an English
Minister who is the son of a scholar and was once a
man of letters himself. The new Canon of St. Paul's
Cathedral is a learned and profound historian, much
of whose work is hidden away in learned prefaces
to that series of the "Rolls Publications" which is
pouring a flood of light into the recesses of earlier
English history. Much of it, too, has been done at
Oxford in lectures; but the ripest fruit of his labors


and studies las lately been given to the world in
three volumes on the early Constitutional History
of England." In this work he has reconstructed the
early institutions and the early social life of the Eng-
lish people. Chronicles and charters, monkish 'an-
nals and abbey registers, writs, acts, deeds, procla-
mations, decrees. roll, and registers of Parliaments,
household accounts and family records, as well as the
ordinary sources of current history-all passed under
his examination, and nothing escaped him. Indeed,
the Professor is an acknowledged leader of the school
of patient and self-sacrificing students, and it is all
the more fitting that such labors should be aeknow-
ledged by preferment which at once confers a merit-
ed distinction and affords the necessary leisure for
their continued prosecution.
John Toler, Lord Norbury, was noted as the pun.
ning Chief Justice. When he at at Nisi Prius,
his constant fire of puns, the repartees of the Bar,
and applause of the spectators, often raised a terri.
ble dim. A witness being asked "what bis bus!-
ness was ?" replied, "I keep a racket-court." Lord
Norbury instantly exclaimed, "So do I! so do I!"
The son of a Peer having been accused of arson
of which offence he was generally believed guilty,
but acquitted on a point of insufficiency of evidence
to sustain the indictment, was tried before Lord
Norlry. The young gentleman met the Judge
next at the Lord Lieutenant's lev6e in the Castle.
Instead of avoiding the Chief Justice, the scion of
aristocracy boldly said, "I have recently married
and have come here to enable me to present my
bride at the drawing room." "Quite right to mind
the Scripture. Better marry than burn," retorted
Lord Norbury.

Columns accompanies this issue of

acceptable article on the Meeting of Congress."

dia news; a list of the Jurors to serve "Easter

RERMTTDA ROYAL GAZETTE


("'ro., i!e Nw Yuxk/ Co d Trcdc Jo uri, JMach 19.)
There has been a very fair trade doing in An-
thracite, since the date of our last and the coal is
going into immediate consumption, so that the
spring trade opens with a most opportune market;
were the operators at all disposed, there could be
an advance in prices. The constant efforts to ship
immense tonnages, with the financial necessities of
some of them, preclude this coming to pass. When
the demand overtakes the ability to supply, there
may come a rise in prices. Many of the prominent
operators predict this state of affairs before the
close of the year. Industrial pursuits are in much
better shape than last year, and coal will soon feel
a demand from this direction. At the present rates
no one in coal mining is making money, merely
hanging on, to take advantage of the good time
coming.
From the eastward there is an active demand,
and all that is necessary to make a "grand spurt,"
is the reduction in coastwise freights that is looked
for, by some operators and dealers. We fancy
they will be disappointed in this; there will be no
demand for Ice at the ports below, and vessels ex-
pect good rates on coal.
The Delaware and Hudson expect to open with
prices at Rondout, at ten cents per ton over last
sale averages.
The annual statement of the Department of
Mines of Nova Scotia has been received, and from
it we learn that the quantity of coal sold during
the year was 693,511 tons, against 687,065 in 1877.
From the Coal Trade Journal, March 26.
The market for Anthracite coal has been quiet
during the week now under review; the sales have
not been large but the shippers have been fully oc-
cupied in disposing of the orders that have accu-
mulated-since the date of the last Scranton sale.
There is delay in loading certain sizes and quali-
ties of coal. It will not be surprising to find that
there is a scarcity of labor in the coal regions, and
the miners out of condition to produce the large
amount that will be called for, before the end of the
present season. An opinion founded upon the con-
dition of the Anthracite coal trade, warrants the
assertion that twenty-two millions of tons can be
marketed this year. As to the price, there can be
no doubt that the requirements this fall, will be so
large as to materially advance the quotations above
those ruling at present.
The Halifax Chronicle" remarks :-" The duty
of 50 cents would be insufficient if it had no accom-
panying disadvantages; but the fact is that this
small favor to the coal interest is accompanied by
increased taxes upon nearly everything used in
mines. The cost of productions thereby increased,
and, consequently, the advantage of the coal duty
reduced to exceedingly small proportions.
Mr. Poole, the Inspector of Mines, in his last
years report, touches on this subject of a duty.
Allowing coal to go back to the Upper Provinces,
in return cars, which is at the very lowest rates of
freight, he says:-" A protective duty of $1 a ton i
would be required to give command of the trade in
this way." Apparently, there is but one result
from this whole question of imposing a duty on im-
ported coal; for it is mainly Anthracite, of which
the Provinces possess no supply. The people will
pay an increased price for it, by just so much as
the duty, and the Provincial coal owners be bene-
fitted but very little."
Anthracite Tonnage to March 13th :
1879-3,936,470 tons.
1878-2,438,594 "1
The Delaware & Hudson 1879, 537,640 tons
against 507,552 tons in 1878, while almost all the
other companies have doubled their output.

A HAPPY FAMILY.
From a report to the English naval authorities
made by Admiral de Horsey, of the Shah, public
attention has been drawn to Pitcairn's Island, and
its romantic history, which, to many of the present
generation, comes with all the novelty of a new dis-
covery.
Pitcairn's Island is situated in the Southern
Pacific, several hundred miles from Otaheite. In
1790, the crew of the English ship Bounty mutinied
and settled in Otaheite, but fearing that they
would be apprehended and punished by the Govern-
ment for their crime, nine of the mutineers, with
six Otaheitan and twelve women, fled to Pitcairn's
Island. It is a small place, only two miles and a
quarter long, and about one mile in average width.
But though small, it no doubt seemed a paradise in
its rich tropical beauty to the English sailors, who
could here live in ease and idleness. They carried
with .them, however, their passions and their vices;
and before 1800 eight out of the nine sailors, all
the native men and several of the women had died
off from violence and disease. All that remained
were the children of the first settlers, a few of the
women and one English sailor, John Adams, who
was the ruler of the little community.
The death of his comrades, and the isolation in
which he was left affected a great change in John
Adams, and in later years the sober, sedate man,
who devised a simple code of laws for his people
and ruled them with all the wisdom and serenity
of an old patriarch, bore little resemblance to one
of a band of mutineers.
The settlement was subsequently taken under the
supervision of the English Government, though it
never required much aid. In 1831 the inhabitants


bad increased to eighty-seven, and as that number
began to crowd their little territory they were
transported at their own request to Otaheite. But
in their quiet, simple life they had become unfitted
for the battle of a more thickly settled country ;
and, disgusted with the dissolute habits of the
Otaheitans, the greater portion of them went back
to their own home during the year. In 1856 they
again found themselves too numerous, and were re-
moved to Norfolk Islan.d. But the love of home
proved too strong for some of them ; and in a few
years quite a number returned to Pitcairn. When
Admiral de Horsey visited them last September he
found sixteen men, nineteen women, twenty-five
boys and thirty girls-quite a large settlement.
Simplicity and honesty seem to characterize these
islanders. They have a Governor elected by uni.
versal suffrage of both sexes over 17 years; the
present official is named James Russell McKoy.
He is the patriarch of the Island, and the steerman
of their one whale boat-all the navy they have.
The laws under which they live are Adams' old
code, modified by Governor McKoy. But they are
very simple, only recognizing three crimes-theft,
profanity and adultery, and it would seem scarcely
necessary to have even these laws, for no offences
coming under those heads have ever been known on
the Island since the laws were enacted. According
to Admiral de Horsey, these people "live together
in perfect harmony and contentment; are virtuous,
religious and hospitable patterns of conjugal and
parental affection, and have very few vices." Of
their religious attributes, he says, "no one can
speak without deep respect, a people whose greatest
privilege and pleasure is to commune in prayer
with their God, and to join in hymns of praise, and
who are, moreover, cheerful, diligent, and probably
freer from vice than any community, need no priest
amongst them."
They have, however, a religious leader, one of
themselves, Mr. Simon Young, who with his
daughter conducts their services and superintends,
their education which embraces reading, writing,
arithmetic, geography, Scripture history and sing-
ing. English is the only language spoken. There
is no drunkenness on the Island, and alcohol is only
used medicinally.


STONEWALL JACKSON'S DEATH WOUND.
Alleged to have been Wounded by mistake by his own
Men.
(From the Charleston News.)
General Jubal A. Early contributes to the Decem-
ber number of the Southern Historical Society
papers an elaborate article on the wounding of
Stonewall Jackson, which will be read with painful
interest by every ex-Confederate. It includes a
long and plainly written narrative by Capt. R. E.
Wilburn, of Mississippi, who was the only officer
actually with General Jackson at the time he was
wounded. In the words of General Early: "His
account of the whole affair shows how very errone-
ous are the generally received accounts; and it now
appears that instead of riding to the front to recon-
noitre the enemy and then imprudently galloping
back toward his own lipe, Gen. Jackson was slowly
riding to the front, while making every effort to hurry
forward the troops when he was fired on by a por-
tion of his own men on the right (south) of the road
and.obliquely from the rear, and thatthen the horses
of his party that were not shot down whheeled to the
left, and he galloped into the woods on the left to
escape the fire, when he was fired upon by another
body of troops on the north side of the road." It
was by this last fire that Gen. Jackson was wounded.
One ball struck him in the left arm, two inches be-
low the shoulder joint, shattering the bone and sev-
ering the chief artery ; a second passed through the
same artery; a third passed through the same arm,
between the elbow and the wrist, making its exit
through the palm of the band, and a fourth ball en-
tered the palm of his right hand, about the middle,
and passing through broke two of the bones. All the
circumstances surrounding the wounding, as well as
those immediately preceding and succeeding, are told
with graphic distinctness and picturesque detail, and
Gen. Early's article, although apparently intended
only as a reply to some erroneous statements of Gen.
River, in his book entitled Keel and Saddle was
really a most valuable contribution to the history of
the trial."

Prof. H. Grii'z adds his testimony to that of the
late Dr. Beke, that Mt. Sinai is not in the Sinaitic
peninsula, but in the vicinity of Edom. He iden-
tifies it with Mt. Araif, about 20 miles from Ka-
deshb.
SELF IMPORTANCE.-Persons who liketo contem-
plate their own importance should consider that,
the world got along very well before they were born
and will probably get along equally well after they
are dead.

The Journal of the Franklin Institute reports that
Profs. Houston and Thompson recently showed that
power miy be transmitted for long distances by
means of the electric current and very fine wires.
In an experiment before the Institute currents of
high electro-motive force, generated by an electric
machine, were sent, using wires of exceedingly small
diameter to another machine, which gave off, consi-
derable power. A paper by the same physicists, in
the February number of the Journal, giving the
results of personal observations on dynamo-electric
machines, not heretofore published, although not
quite suited for intelligible condensation here, is well
worth the attention of electricians and mechanicians.

Written expresslyfor the Bermuda Royal Gazette..
THE MEETING OF CONGRESS.
Congress has met and entered on the consideration
of the supplies the last Session failed to vote. The
Democrats are in control of both houses and adhere
to their purpose to tack on to the Appropriation
Bills the repeal of certain obnoxious measures. A
Democratic caucus has so decided and to its decisi.
on all individual opinion and feeling must succumb
In the caucus a dozen Democratic Senators object.
ed to the plan of action, and this number added t(
t Republicans, would defeat the Bills in the Sen.
.. But their hostility was exhausted in the cau.
s, and when the Bills come up in regular course
there will probably be no hesitation on the part o:
the Democrats and they will vote as one man. Th
original purpose of a caucus was to agree upon the
names of candidates to be proposed and elected as
officers, and to be appointed on the Committees of
Congress; and by confining discussion and dissen.
sion within its own ranks to its secret meetings
some good was served. When public action had t(
be taken, everything, under the discipline of the
caucus, was cut and dried, and the action of the
party was mechanical. And it has come to pass
that the policy of legislation is also shaped in cau.
cus, and the Sessions of Congress merely carry out
its edicts. The Democrats are more ready to seek
and more rigid to heed caucus instruction thon the
Republicans, but both parties have their close gath.
erings to advise and agree upon united action
Just now, some impatience is felt at the despotisnm
of the caucus. The Democrats seem afraid tc
speak until their caucus has decided what they
must say, and their personal independence in legis-
lative speech and opinion, as well as in legislative
votes and action, is checked and silenced by this
abnormal supervision they have established for
themselves.
At the close of the last Session the Republicans
in order to pass the necessary supplies, were will-
ing to concede the repeal of all but one of the mea.
sures the Democrats desired to repeal. The juror's
test oath, and the right to have troops near the
polls, may very well be given up. The lapse of
time is taking all the sting and embarrassment out
of the oaths which the war created; and the troops,
never used at the polls, are wanted to fight Indians,
and cannot be spared for political conflicts. The
right of the United States to appoint supervisors in
the different States at elections of members of Con-
gress, the Republicans refused to concede. They
claim that such a right is necessary for a fair elec-
tion; that in large cities where Democrats abound
the ballot is abused; and that where one voter is
intimidated and prevented from voting lawfully, a
hundred fraudulent votes are kept out of the count.
The Democratic hostility is based on two grounds,
first, that the general government has no right to
interfere in the internal police regulations of a State
at elections or any other time ; and, secondly, that
voters entitled to vote are hindered from so doing
by the quibbles and interference of the United
States authorities. Against this claim it is urged
that the supervisors never act in merely local State
elections, but only where Officers of the United
States, or its Congress are to be chosen; and, fur-
ther, that no qualified voter can be seared away
from the polls, but only those who know they have
no lawful right to vote. The career of Tweed and his
gang in New York gives force to the claim, that
some means should be adopted to make impossible
the wholesale fraudulent voting by which his power
was maintained. That the United States laws are
intended to secure a fair election by preventing
fraudulent votes, and that they have helped greatly
in this direction, seems to be conceded; and some
suspicion of the sudden desire to repeal these laws,
and of its motive, begins to be excited even outside
of and beyond the ranks of the Republicans. The
very laws now sought to be repealed were intro-
duced by Democrats and passed by their votes.
To be sure, this was at a time when they were con-
sidered necessary war measures which loyal Demo-
crats as well as Republicans" favored. But they
could never have possessed such intrinsic repug-
nance to Democratic principles as is now attributed
to them, or they would never have been so intro-
duced and passed.
On the introduction of the same Appropriation
Bills this Session, with the same repealing clauses,
the Republicans changed their tactics and now re-
fuse to concede the repeal of any of the obnoxious
measures. They say that the Democrats will not
accept concession, that the repeal now asked is to
be followed by other and more dangerous action,
and that they may as well be fought and resisted
first as last, al! through as partially. The Republi-
can position does not seem altogether sound, as
what they conceded in March may as well be con-
ceded in April. They maintain it, however, with a
bold front, and with more propriety denounce the
attempt of the Democrats to "starve"thePresident
into submission, by refusing the supplies of the
Government unless he approves legislation repug-
nant to him and his party with which their grant
is saddled. A good standing order of the House
was cited as forbidding this method of legislation.
It is that after Supply Bills have left tjie Commit-
tees, no amendment can be moved unless it is ger-
mane to the provisions of the Bills, and in favor of
retrenchment and economy. It has been held that
the proposed retrenchment must appear on the face
of the amendment, and this is not the case with the
present repealing clauses. But the presiding of-
ficer held that retrenchment would be a result of
the adoption of the amendments and permitted
them to be moved. The general debate on them is
now proceeding. The better relief is that if passed,
the Bills will be vetoed by the President, notwith-


standing the straits in which the country will be
placed for want of the then unvoted supplies. But
it also begins to be believed, that the Democrats
will not after the veto, persist in their obstructive
course. They have been somewhat staggered by
the strong position of the Republicans in the de-
bate ; they see that the public begin to ask what
there is so iniquitous and harsh in the election laws
that they must be repealed, or the judicial, military
and executive departments of the country must
starve" ; and already there are signs that they
regret the extra Session they have forced, and the
unwise, if not unusual, methods oflegislation they
have insisted upon.


STORIES OF THE IRISH BAR.
Lord Avon more was frequently lost in reverie and
quite oblivous of what was passing around him.
Both he and Curran were at a dinner party, and
Curran, who sat next to the Chief Baron, observing
him quite abstracted when the toast, "Oar Absent
Friends" was drunk, nudged him. "My Lord,"
he said, "our host has just proposed your health,
which has been received in very cordial terms;
surely you will respond." "Thank you, Curran,
really 1 was not aware of it," replied the Chief Ba-
ron, and up he got; and to the surprise of many and
the amusement of more, made an eloquent speech in
reply to a toast which was not given.
John Fitzgibbon, Lord Chancellor of Ireland
had a haughty manner and want of temper which
often subjected him to reproach. It was seldom
Curran had an opportunity of retaliating upon his
adversary the hostility which he encountered from
the Court of Chancery, but when he had he never
failed to use it. One day, while Curran was ar-
&uing before the Chancellor, his Lordship stpoped
doean to fondle a favourite Newfoundland dog.
Curran suddenly stopped. On the Chancellor in-
quiring why he did not proceed, I thought," re-
plied Curran, "your Lordship might be engaged in
consiutaiton.'.

GRAVE RUMORS FROM ZULU-LAND.
. Fears for the Safety of Col. Pearson's Command-
Organizing an Expedition to go to His Relief-The
SHouse of Commons Rejects the Motion of Censure.
MARITZBUBG, March 11.-No direct or trust-
worthy intelligence from Col. Pearson has been re-
s ceived. Anxiety is becoming grave, though the last
* communication was hopeful. Several native run-
ners, induced by large rewards, started for'Ekowe
j with dispatches, but returned, reporting. the roads
- desuoyed, every approach commanded by military
. kraals, (forts,) and the country swarming with
i Zulus. With the utmost care Col. Pearson's sup-
* plies, it is believed, will be exhausted by the end of
F March. The expedition in course of organization
b on the Lower Tugela for his relief now amounts to
, 14 companies of regulars. As soon as the native
, contingent is sufficiently strengthened the expedi-
tion will be pushed forward.
LONDON, March 31.-Dispatches from Cape Town
state that a serious breach has occurred between
Sir Bartle Frere, Governor and Commander-i ,-Chief
of Cape Colony, and Sir Henry E. Bulwer, Gover-
ror of Natal, in consequence of the harsh measures
sanctioned by the former to conscript the na-
tives.
In the House of Commons to-day Sir Stafford
Northcote, Chancellor cf the Exchequer, replying
to an inquiry, said the negotiations with Afghan-
istan had not been completed, and he was therefore
unable to communicate the details. Major Cavag-
nari's arrival at Lahore had led to the belief that
the negotiations were broken off, but in fact com-
munications from Kabul were expected. He had
no information that an advance on Kabul had been
ordered.
In the House of Lords to-day, April 1, Lord Cot-
tesloe, in moving for an official return of the Bri-
tish trade with the United States, pointed out the
large balance of American trade against England,
and said he hoped the Americans would see the
advantages of reciprocity, because, while the man-
ufacturers in the North were benefitted by high
duties, it was the interest of the producers of the
South to have free trade. The motion was adopted.
In the House of Lords last night, on the motion
of the Duke of Somerset, a compilation was ordered
of the return of the quantities of meat imported
monthly from the United States from February,
1878, to January, 1879.
In the House of Lords to-day Earl Cadogan,
Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, replying
to an inquiry said," Ohaum seems to have effect-
ually broken with his brother, King Cetewayo," .
In the House of Commons to-night the debate
on the Zulu war was resumed. Mr. Courtney
(Liberal) declared that Sir Bartle Frere was ready
to extend Bih 'ih authority by all kinds of iniquities
Viscount Saudon (Conservative) and Sir George
Balfour (Libers.) defended Sir Bartle Frere. The
latter announce: his intention to abstain from vot-
ing. The debate was continued on party lines by
Mr. Claud Alexander, (Conservative) Mr. Synan,
(Liberal,) Mr. Arthur Mills, (Conservative,) and
Mr. O'Connor Power, (Liberal,) Mr. Gorst (Conser-
vative) supported Sir Charles DI)ilke's resolution.
He believed Sir Bartle Frere would not have been
censured by the Government but for the disaster to
the British arms.
Sir William Harcourt (Liberal) said that Sir
Bartle Frere, in consequence of the Government's
feebleness, treated it with unprecedented contempt.
He asked whether the Government's censure on Sir
Bartle Frere was bona fide or a mere parliamentary
manoeuvre.
the Marquis of Hartington (Liberal) pointed out
that Lord Chelmsford, as early as Jan. 9, submitted
plans for an invasion of Zuululand. This should
have awakened the Government to Sir Bartle Frere's
aggressive tendencies. The country, he said,wished
to know whom to call to account for the discredit
brought on the British name.
Sir Stafford Northcote, Chancellor of the Ex-
chequer, said the Government was responsible for
what was happening in Africa. He thought Sir
Bartle Frere's services outweighed his faults.
Col. Murs's addition to Sir Charles Dilke's mo-
tion of censure was then withdrawn. The House


divided on the motion itself, and it was rejected by
a vote of 306 to 246.

AFGHANISTAN AND ROUMELIA.
LONDON, April 2.-A dispatch from Lahore says :
A squadron of the Tenth Hussars was swept away
while crossing the Kabul River, near Emellabade,
on March 31. A Lieutenant and 40 men are miss-
ing. Sixteen bodies have been recovered."

The St. Petersburg correspondent of the Daily
News, writing on the 28th of March, says: Only
in the contingency of the Eastern question passing
beyond the reach of a diplomatic solution will any
hostile expedition be sent against Merv. The stop-
page of all preparations for the expedition until
further orders may thus be considered to show the
belief of Russia that disturbances will be avoided
in Eastern Roumelia. The correspondent traces
the origin of Russia's change of policy in favor of a
mixed occupation to a telegram sent by Gen. Todle-
ben before quitting his command in Eastern Rou-
melia-which produced a great impression-to the
effect that he could .not be answerable for the con-
duct of the Russian army in the event of fresh mas-
sacres. Under these circumstances, pending the
negotiations on the mixed occupation scheme, tele-
grams were sent countermanding the demobiliza-
tion of the regiments at Sebastopol and Odessa.
TIRNOVA, April 2.-The committee to-day pre-
sented their report to the Assembly upon the Con-
stitution. The Liberals vehemently attacked it as
being too conservative. The Assembly rejected the
report, and decided to sit daily and discuss the
Constitution article by article.
LONDON, April 3.-Reuter's telegram from Vien-
na says it is stated there that the Porte on Tues-
day intimated that it accepted the mixed occupa-
tion scheme with some reservations relative to the
manner of its execution.
The Times's correspondent at Vienna reports that
the negotiations with the Porte have been confiden-
tial. The Turks stipulated that a Governor-Gener


al should be appointed and the Turkish contingent
permitted to participate in the occupation of the
Balkans. Russia, who at first opposed the pro-
position, has consented to Turkish participation in
the mixed occupation.
The Telegraph's St. Petersburg correspondent as-
serts that he has been informed upon trustworthy
authority that Russia is subsidizing Yakoob Khan,
and is preparing for a diversion in his favor. The
f report is regarded as sensational.
LONDON, April 1.-It is stated that Sir Austen
Layard will leave here for Constantinople on the
18th of the present month, to resume his post as
British Ambassador.
The Viceroy of India telegraphs that Major San-
deman reached Thull on the 27th of Maich, and
that Major Cavagnari has started for Jalalabad.
LONDON, April 2.-A dispatch to the Standard
from Lahore says: "Though negotiations have not
nominally been broken off, Yakoob Khan's letter is
f still unanswered. The Viceroy announces that
small forces have been sent to Futteabad and Char-
bagb, in advance of Jalalabad, to overawe maraud-
ing tribes. The Standard's correspondent says the
best informed people think the movement is really
a demonstration in reply to Yakoob Khan's evasive
letter."

THE NEGOTIATIONS WITH YAKOOB KHAN.
LONDON, March 31.-A dispatch from Lahore to
the Times says: Major Cavagnari, who arrived
here on Wednesday to confer with the Viceroy,
still remains. The negotiations with Yakoob Khan
have continued, but hitherto it perhaps has not
been the Government's policy to press Yakoob
Khan to a final decision, for the obvious reason
that if his decision proved unacceptable a prompt
advance on Kabul may be our proper cause, and
that at present, while snorw cnorzrf (?h passes, would
be impracticable. It will not be surprising if, in
the absence of pressure, Yakoob Khan holds out for
more favorable terms than the Viceroy of India has
indicated. Doubtless the terms offered are such as
Yakoob Khan could accept without dishonor, and
would, if accepted, make him the strongest monarch
Afghanistan has had for many years. But it is
possible that Yakoob Khan may prefer to save his
honor by suffering the loss of a battle before he sub-
mits to the inevitable. Doubtless a march upon
Kabul is the last thing the Government desires,
though it is quite prepared to accept it as a necessity."
A dispatch fiorn Lahore to Renter's Telegram
Company says : A small force under Major Hum-
frey was attacked on the 27th of March in the Pi-
shin Valley by 2,000 Af.,hans. The enemy was de-
feated with the loss of 60 men killed. There were
no casualties among the British troops."

For the Bermuda Royal Gazette.
DEARn'MR. EDITon,-During the past few weeks
there have been so many important affairs, such as
Royal marriages, &c., &c., calling for my attention
in Europe that I fear I have sadly neglected my
favorite Bermudas-those emerald gems of the At-
lantic. Cupid, however, has been among you, and
I hear from Mercury, our Olympian messenger
(who seems to be playing fine antics in your green
islands) that the little fellow has not been idle
with his archery. I am also told that my two
great rivals, Minerva and Juno, have taken advan-
tage of my being occupied elsewhere to interfere in
my particular domain, and have presumed to pass
judgment on some fair Bermudians. As they have
given you their opinion, with respect to the beha-
viour of the young ladies of Bermuda, I feel bound
to do so likewise, for being the impersonation par
excellence. of woman, it is impossible for me to
keep silence whilst others of my sex are allowed to
speak. I suppose it is needless to say I disagree
with Minerva and Juno-I always do, and have
done so ever since the days of Paris, who awarded
me the golden apple on Mount Ida; and though I
would not venture to defend a person of so doubt-
ful a character as Mr. Tally Ho, still I do think
that the young ladies ought to be allowed to flirt
with whoever they please. It is very clear that
poor old Minerva can never have made any con-
quests, and has not the smallest notion of flirting,
else she would undoubtedly know that the surest
way to blind men and make them subservient to
one's wishes is to touch up their vanity. If the
young ladies of Bermuda would only learn of me,
and follow my example, instead of being frightened
by the scoldings of a prudish old maid, or led by
the counsels of a haughty queen, whose beauty had
less influence over the great Jove than her shrew-
ish tongue, they would soon find out how to twist
any of the sterner sex round their little fingers.
Have they not the same field for action that I had ?
I gained such an influence over my poor hobbling
old Vulcan that he is perfectly blind to all my
coquetries and devoted to me as ever. He was
always on the be't of terms with Mars, whose mar-
tial airs, gorgeo 1: warlike attire, and wonderful
feats of arms, have always had such powerful at-
tractions for me and my devotees-though I must
confess that of late they have not been quite such
close companions, as ,Mars feels a little aggrieved
at the strange treatment one of his sons has b en
subjected to, owing to certain queer vagaries and
one-sided proceedings on Vulcan's part.
Let the young ladies of Bermuda, then, take
courage, and not allow themselves to be snubbed
by ancient females who are jealous of their charms.
They need not indeed pay much attention to indi-
viduals of such small importance as this Mr. Tally
Ho, but in this, my sacred month of April, when
their summer campaign is about to commence, let
them devote all their attention to the sons of Mars.


and Neptune (those most susceptible of mortals)
and I promise them, by the virtue of my magic
girdle, that victoryy shall attend their efforts. In
the meantime
I remain, dear Mr. Editor,
Your sincere well-wisher and friend,
VENUS.

From the West Indies and Demerara.
The Royal Mail Steamer Beta, Captain Shaw, ar-
rived at St. George's on Wednesday morning last
from St. Thomas. She left same afternoon for
HIalifax.
By the Beta we have received our usual exchange
files from this quarter. Mr. Swan, a passenger, has
kindly handed us a few copies of the St. Thomas
Times, from which we gather some information.

ST. THOMAS.-YELLOW FEVER.
We are pleased to learn that Yellow Fever has
quite disappeared from the Island of St. Thomas.
Admiral Inglefield and some half dozen ships of
his squadron arrived there from St. Croix on the
15th ult., and left on the morning of the 19th for Ja-
maica. During Admiral Inglefield's stay at St.
Thomas he allowed his Band to go on shore on St.
Patrick's Day (17th March) and play in Emanci-
pation Garden" to the great delight of the lovers of
Music.
It seems that as long since as the 23rd October
last, an official notice appeared in the "London
Gazette," dated at Copenhagen on the same day, to
the effect that that Government has received intel-
ligence that yellow fever has broken out at St.
Thomas-four soldiers having been attacked. The
fever is of a virulent character." In the London
"Lancet" there appears a letter credited and seem-
ingly not denied to the "defacto," the Health
Officer and King's Physician, for the Island of
St. Thomas," in which he asserts, that Yellow Fever
was not raging at St. Thomas on the 26th October:
and again the same person asserts in writing on the


11th January that for some time there has not.
been any case of yellow fever in St. Thomas."
Mr. W. C. Lamb, a gentleman of high standing
and probity, an old resident in St. Thomas, in a
letter to the St. Thomas "Times," dated 12th
March, in reference to these averments, remarks,
I would say that the foibles of Ananias are ap-
parently not yet extinct, and his mantle has des-
cended to competent heirs, as there are many resi-
dents here whose sad bereavements at, and during
the periods quoted, from yellow fever, can asseve-
rate to the contrary, and the cases of the British
Barque "Samarang," American Schooner "Cephas
Starret" and others, are not yet quite buried in ob-
livion."
Mr. Lamb concludes his letter as follows:-
Happily we are now (March 12) free of yellow
fever, or other dangerous illness, and GoD grant us
His Divine protection from such ruinous visitations
as assuredly recent experience must have taught us
that official juggles, discretionary reports and specious
certificates are not accepted abroad as legitimate and
trustworthy, and instead of ameliorating, rather
tend to increase our misfortunes."

We regret to learn that the Cunard Royal Mail
Steamer Beta,.' which arrived here this day, from
Halifax, reports that on her last voyage, on arrival
at Halifax, she was place in Quarantine, "in con-
sequence of yellow fever in St. Thomas." The
Beta" had no bill of health from H. B. M. Con-
sul at this port.
Extract of a private letter, from a reliable source,
dated Bermuda, March 21st, 1879:
"The authorities here have declared the Island
of St. Thomas an infected port. Will you be kind
enough to let me know by return of this Steamer,
if yellow fever is still prevailing at St. Thomas,
and if so to what extent ?"
This measure has been adopted on recent news
received at Bermuda from Halifax, and the United
States, a vessel having reached Halifax* from Dem-
erara and St. Thomas with two cases of yellow fever
on board. We have this day made inquiries at H. B.
M. Consulate, and have been informed by Mr. Consul
Stevens that he has issued Bills of Health clean in
every particular, ever since the 7th November last
or ten days from the last officially reported case
of yellow fever in this town, while previously to
that epoch the British Consulate here treated the
sickness, also on official certificates, as sporadic.
Bermuda it should be.-Ed. Br. R. G.

A new Mail contract has been entered into between
the Imperial Government and the former Royal Mail
Steam Packet Company, for the conveyance of mails
'between the United Kingdom and the West Indies,
for the next two years. The new contract provides
for services similar to those performed under exist-
ing contract; the speed to be increased from 11 to
11; subsidy 80,000, 6,750 less than existing
contract. The Atlas Steamship Company asked for
a subsidy of 59,500 to convey the mails first to
New York by the American Mail 8'o, ,r,: and in
their own vessels for the other part of the route.
The Treasury would have at once authorised the
Postmaster General to accept this offer, if financial
reasons only were to be considered: so the matter
was referred to the Colonial Secretary. He obser-
ved "that the Atlas Company proposed to carry all
the Mails to New York and while the delivery to
Jamaica would be accelerated yet as compared with
the present service and the R. M. Company's ten-
der, the delivery to every other Colony would be
postponed for periods varying from nine hours to 6
days 11 hours. An increase of nearly seven days in
the postal service to Demerara was a little too much,
and Sir Michael very properly says "that such a
change could not but be productive of the greatest
inconvenience to the whole of Her Majesty's West
Indian possessions, with the exception of Jamaica,
and at the same time it would deprive this country
of regular and direct communication with them,"
and he adds an argument of general Colonial Policy
--"the abandonment of this direct inter-communica-
tion which it has hitherto been considered to be
a matter of the highest importance to preserve, and
the transmission of the West India Mails, goods and
passengers through the United States appears to me
to be very likely to have the serious effect of weak-
ening our social and commercial relations with this
very important group of Colonies." This is the
proper style of course for a Secretary of State to
speak. The Atlas Company are very indignant at
their non-success.

CUBA.
Further News about the Disturbed Condition of Afairs.
(From the Jamaica Gleaner, March 24.)
We learn from private sour'Cs that within the
last fifteen days, the excitement in Santiago has been
very great on account of certain arbitrary acts of the
government, done without any apparent reason.
General Dalan, Governor of Santiago de Cuba, or-
dered several gentlemen to be imprisoned, together
with some officers of the late revolution, including,
as before reported, Gen. Crombet, Col. Beola and
Col. Rodriques. who have been sent to Spain. Genl.
B's': i.es w.:s ordered to leave the country in 24 hours,
which he did, and to-day he is in New York. Thirty
soldiers were sent to arrest Gen. Crombet, and al-
though he was in a very enfeebled condition and un-
able to walk, his house was entered and searched
and he was carried on a chair to the prison, and
thence to the steamer. These summary proceed-
ings on the part of the Spanish government officers
at Santiago caused considerable alarm and many of


the people thought of flying to the country and
making ready for the general revolutionary move-
ment which is in the mand of every Cuban. Detach-
ments of 00 and 200 p 'tons were already reported
to Gen. Dalan as being near the city.
Gen. Dalan notified Gen. G. Miranda, a leading
Cuban, that he would be held responsible, if the Cu-
bans attempted anything in the nature of an insur-
rection. But Miranda answered, that he could not
prevent anything which the people might be incited
to do, by the very improper and high-handed mea-
sures taken by the Government.
General Dalan has threatened the inhabitants of
Santiago with the enforcement of Martial Law, at
the first sign of a new revolution. He has marched
the troops through the city for the purpose, it is
said of intimidating the people, who are already ex-
asperated beyond endurance.
Things are growing worse every moment, and it
ir reported that a general outbreak through the
whole island is imminent.
The last news from Baracoa reports that that Old
City has been burnt down. Details are wanted. All the
prisons at the seaports are full of people, especially
officers and soldiers from the last revolution,
General Dalan has telegraphel to Havana for re-
inforcements.

miral Wyman, arrived at St. Thomas from-Porto
Cabello on the 16th and exchanged salutes on the
following morning with the Bellerophon.
Rear Admiral Wyman visited Admiral Inglefield
on the 17th on board H.M.S. Bellerophon, and was
saluted on leaving. Admiral Inglefield returned
the compliment and was saluted on disembarking
from the Powhatan, after which he landed, and was
received by G. A. Steevens, Esqr., H B. M. Consul,
as also by His Excellency the Governor's Aide-de-
Camp. The Admiral, accompanied by his suite,
drove to the residence of H. M. Consul, and, after
a visit, proceeded to Government House, to visit
the family of His Excellency Governor Garde.

LIEUTS. CHARD AND BROMHEAD.

From the Freeman's Journal, London, Mtarch 11.
All your military and no doubt many of your
ordinary readers, are aware of the fact that once
every year the commanding officer of a regiment
sends in what is called "a confidential report" on
the conduct and capabilities of the officers of his
regiment. At the present moment the previous
careers of Lieutenants Chard and Bromhead are
being inquired into with the view, no doubt, to their
promotion; but you can guess the surprise of th3
Duke of Cambridge when he discovered that the
confidential .'port with regard to Br.-hlea,1 gayv.
that gallant y6ung officer j'6 W6rst posible pird-
'fessional character. I can tell you on the best
authority that the confidential report in Lieutenant
Brombead's case was that he was "indolent and
inefficient !" So much for the value of confidential
reports.
Though the statement that the Victoria Cross
bad been conferred on Chard and Bromhead was
premature, it was, no doubt, a pretty accurate guess
of what is coming, for I know that the Commander-
in-Chief is quite enthuisastic in his admiration of
their skilful and valiant defence.
We understand," says the Irish Times of March
10, "that Lieutenants Brombead and Chard will
be made C.B's and will both be granted their
Brevet Majority."
[It may interest some of our readers to know that
Lieutenant Chard, R.E., served for a short time in
Bermuda six years ago, and also that the same
officer received the chief part of his early military
training when serving under a distinguished officer
now here, and to whom it mu't be a great cause of
satisfaction and pride to see such a result of his tu-
ition. We join in the prises -which a'e bestowed
on the gallantry of these young officers and the
brave 139.-[Ed. Br. B. G.]

The Times, forecasting the budget, which will be
announced on 3rd April, thinks that it will show a
surplus of. 2,702,000 on the ordinary expenditures,
out of which it will be necessary to provide for sup-
plementary estimates an'l do something; toward de-
creasing the accumulated deficit of 5,000,000
caused by the extraordinary expenditure in conse-
quence of Eastern affairs. The Times points out
that, despite the accumulation of this deficit, the
country really has been payin its way, as it has,
while the deficit was accumul ltin,", devoted more
thin 3.000,000 annually to the reduction of the
drfbt. It deprecates, under these circumstances, any
increase in taxation merely to pay the debt; or, if
such must be imposed, it would recommend an
additional penny of income tax, instead of disturb-
ing trade by any increase of indirect taxation, sumh
as a duty on tea.
The duty paid on tea withdrawn fro'n bonded
warehouses on Friday, Saturday, and Monday
averaged 52,000 daily, The withdrawals were in
consequence of an apprehen ion that the Govern-
onent intends to levy a duty on tea, the announce-
ment of which would be made in the budget state-
ment on Thursday night. P'he duty paid on tea
withdrawn on Tuesday last amounted to 83,000.
The average daily payment during an ordinary busy
season is 10,000. The fear of a tea duty has been
prevailing for several weeks to such an extent as to
influence withdrawals, but has not had much effect
on prices.

When his schooldays were over, and his college
career ended, Curran went to London to keep his
terms for the Bar. His finances were often very
low, but his spirits kept high, and though oppressed
hy poverty he did not give way to despair. A story is
told of his going dinnerless to St. James Park, where,
sitting hungry on a bench, he began whistling an
Irish tune. An elderly gentleman pause Ito rest


on the same seat, and, struck by the melancholy
I ok of the youth, inquired, How he ca me to be
sitting there, whistling an Irish tt I', whin
other people were at their dinner?" Curraa
replied, He wou'd be at hi. dinner too, but
a trifling matter-'lelav in rernittancs -oblizeJ
him to dine on an Irish tune." The stran-
ger, struck with the playful manner of the youth,
invited him to dine at a neighboring tavern, and
ere long was delighted with the humour of the
young Irishman. Curran was equally pleased with
his new friend, and, years afterwards, when Curran
was known and famous, recalled this occurrence to
the recollection of his generous entertainer-Mack-
lin, the celebrated actor-with the assurance you
never acted better."
One of the happiest bon-mots of Ljrd Norbary
was uttered when Dr. Troy was Roman Catholic
Archbishop of Dublin. The Archbishop constant.
ly entertained the leading members of the farnous
Catholic Association, and amnmgst them Mr.
2Eaeas Macdonnell. This gentleman happened to
be leaving the dinner party at th Archbishop's
when Lord Norbury was passing with a friend.
"There goes the ancient warrior" whispered th
punster to his friend. Whom do you mean ? '
was the inquiry. "The pious XEieas returning,
from the Sack of Troy."
Lord Norbury, walking to court one morning,
saw a crowd on the Quay, near the Four Courts.
He inquired the cause, and was informed a tailor
had just been rescued from attempting suicide by
drowning. What a fool," responded the Chief
Justice, to leave his hot goose for a cold duck."
'Riding with a friend named Spear, who was
mounted on a huge trotting horse, Lord Norbury
said he should call the quadruped Shakespeare.'
On another occasion a Mr. Pepper, being thrown
from his horse, Lord *Norbury inquired "if the
horse had any name ?" Yes, said the owner, "we
call him Castor." And a very good name for
him," replied his Lordship, but henceforth you
must call him Pepper-caster!"-From the Irish
Ra "* Ah. T nf.diri. 0' Flannanan_
