at a very high price, and its cultivation if it

SUGAR BEET.-We notice by the Halifax Herald
of May 10 that tthe Agricultural Department at
Frederieton, N; B., has imported a ton weight of
sugar beet seed from Germany for experiment this
season in the raising of beet for sugar making
and for cattle feeding. The Secretary for Agri-
culture has considerately placed a limited portion
of the seed at the disposal of the Nova Scotia Board
'f Agriculture at cost price.
Would the growth of the Sugar Beet be worth
a trial by our Bermuda Farmers. ? Root products,
the American Agriculturist informs us, is the most
valuable product we can grow. One acre of man-
gels or beets may be made to.feed 2 or 3 cows for a
whole year; which is more than can be done from
a acre of any other farm product.
A new chapter and an importaait one iq opening-
for the Church of England in Bermuda. On Thurs-
day next, Ascension Day, the Synod will hold its
opening session, and its first business will be to pro-
vide for episcopal supervision, which the Church
here has not enjoyed since the demise of Bishop
Feild. Following out the principle which for
years previously has been customary, the Crown
declined to appoint a Bishop. The Church therefore
had no alternative but to agree on some method of
so governing the Church that episcopal supervision
might be regularly supplied, and the active work
of the Church continued without interruption. The
result has been the establishment of awSynod, under
unusual but salutary limitations, which will be
duly formed on Thursday next. We have merely
done what has been acted on in other colonies, but
somewhat in a more conservative way. The Crown
has delegated its powers to' the people, and accord-
ed to them full and free rights of Church govern-
ment. The people are 1aw to be admitted to a
larger participation in ChurAJ matters, and the laity
will henceforth exercise a mo d& rect control over
the temporalities of the Church. ,The patriarchal
system, which has up to this timeyrevailed, .liad'
many advantages. We have little doir3f aut that
the new order of things will work equall' well.
The intelligence and moderation of our people, aylnt-
pathized with by the many flitting elements minl-
dental to such an important naval and military
station as Bermuda, will serve to sustain the Church
of these Islands in efficiency and purity of admin-
istration. Our position to the great parent Church
is in no way endangered, rather if anything we may
be more closely drawn towards her. The Synod is
merely a general executive of the several Parishes
in matters beyond Parochial power. The move-
ments towards the formation of a Synod naturally
excited discussion, and created many misgivings in
the minds of those whose position and judgment
entitled their opinions to proper respect. In look-
ing over the selections made by the Church Vestries,
we are pleased to notice that the various parties are
represented, and that the lay element as a whole is
talented and alive to the importance of -the duties
which devolve on it. The creation of a Synod aims
at making the Church more democratic. It rests
entirely with the people themselves to preserve in-
violate our Church, in her enjoyment of the pure
liberty of the principles which happily for our na-
tion prevailed at the Reformation. The Synod,'pro-
perly conducted, will prevent undue personal au-
thority operating to the prejudice of any, and will
keep our Parish Churches and Chapels, as they now
are, for the use of the people, and prevent the pos-
sibility of their degenerating into mere private es-
tablishments. The Synod deserves the hearty sup-
port of all Churchmen, which we feel sure it will
I The delightful weather, which we have been enjoying
since the beginning of May. has added relish to the
many festive gatherings which seem to have been crowd-
ed into this beautiful month. In point of weather and
social entertainments, our visitors, who took an early de-
parture owing to the closing of the Hamilton Hotel,
have lost much. Social engagements multiply, and a
favorite or favoured visitor has to undertake much more
than can sometimes be effectually carried out. Two va-
rieties of routine occurred last week, and the one pre-
ceding worthy of notice. A musical party at Long
House brought together some six score, and the musi-
cal talent was worthy, of the occasion, attracted by the
genial hostess' winning ways.
Last Tuesday afternoon a large response was made
to some ten score invitations to a Garden Party at Up-
land Villa. The Governor, Lady and Miss Laffan,
Lt. Carpenter, A.D.C., Col. Vigors, Col. Gordon, and
other principal officers, several of the clergy, and a fair
representation of civilians, and several visitors to these
Islands, were present. The afternoon was so agree-
ably shady, that the ladies, all neatly attired, could dis-
pense with their sun-shades, promeniading round the
spacious lawn, possessing admirable views, or reclinifig
in the well arranged seats, looking on rich floral par-
terres, enjoying the exquisite music discoursed by the
Band of the 19th Regt., ably directed by the Bandmas-
The tennispoles were gaily decorated and the veran-
dah covered such a multitude -of good things that all.
appetites could find satiety. The long experiences of
the host and hostess made all move happily and merri-
ly. There is always a pleasure seeing a new face among
many familiar ones. On this occasion the interest was
enhanced by the presence of a bride, fresh from New
York, whose happy possessor radiant with joy, had re-
cently given evidence of his chivalric qualities, as fully as
years before he had done of his martial ones on the
hard fought field.

.-E.. D a ME. EDITo.-The Mount Langton. Thea-

the Islaid during the past week that the pens of
the many ready writers for your valuable paper

the opportunity ought not to be allowed wholly to
slip away without one word of praise where praise
is certainly due. We must first (place aux dames)
mention that the character of Eloise de Montford
was sustained in a manner worthy of the highest
encomiumis, and we congratulate Mrs. Wheeler
most heartily on her elocution, which was very
good. The part where Eloise declares she will
either save her lover or die with him, was very well
and touchingly rendered, calling forth great ap-
plause and a shower of beautiful bouquets. We
must remember that everybody is not a Lady Ama.-
ranthe Allwill, but we consider that, with persever-
ance and a little more experience, Mrs. Wheeler
will rank amongst some of our best actresses in
Bermuda. Sergt.-Major Hediugham, who under-
took the difficult part of Fournichet, acted With great
force and skill; and Sergt. Moss, as the Alarquisde
St. Gaufrey, was hardly less successful. Private
F. Dillon, as Simon Tiradloo, kept the audience in
roars of laughter. We cannot, however, judging
from his performances on this and other occasions,
advertise him as a trustworthy barber, and think
he wag more to be relied on when paying -marked
attentions to Barbette, which he did with a natural
ease and grace wonderful to behold.
The performance concluded with a Farce The
Lottery Ticket" in which the characters were all
so well sustained it would be difficult to select one
in particular for special notice. Let us hope many
more such pleasant evenings are in store for us.

eC.oRRECTION.-We have been requested to correct an
error 'which occurred in the Commissariat advertise-

FATAL ACCIDENT.-About 10 a.m., on Thursday the
15th inst., a seaman of the Steamer Canima, fell from
the maintopmast to the deck, and sustained such seri-
ous injuries about his head and body as to cause his
death on the following day, the 16th, at 11 a.m. In the
hurry ofthe vessel's departure nothing beyond the man's
name, which was James W, Matthews, could be ascer-
46Ti ATHLETIC SPORTS..
The Annual Athletic Sports of this very popular,
regiment came off on Tuesday last, and were voted
t by all, who had the good luck to be there, an entire
success. The spacious field in rear of the Barracks,
had a fine course carefully roped off, and every ar-
[ rangement'for the comfort and convenience of the
Numerous competitors, had been most 'thoughtfully
attended to. Ample accommodation had been made
for the warm reception of numerous spectators and
friends of the Regt., and a marquee, gaily dressed
|; with flags and banners, invited within its cool re-
' cesses, those wearied by the dust and the heat.
Numerous booths had been erected by enterprising
speculators, in one of which was displayed the noble
art of self-defence, and where eager and impetuous
youth could have his head punched, and be discom-
fited generally, for the trifling sum of two-pence.
.Messrs. Spiers and Pond, notwithstanding their ex-
tensive business at home, had nianaged to erect a
Sumptuous Buffett, and the excellence of their com-
-modities was thoroughly appreciated,: if one might
judge by the ever-changing, bustling, thirsty crowd,
that surrounded their counters during the day.
(Treat entertainment was also afforded by a very
fi ne troop of Christy Minstrels, who enlivened the
pi 'oceedings of the day by their endless jests, witty
rep artee, and lively comic songs. The Zulu King,
Cet'ewayo, was displayed to the gaze of the won-
dering public, and--proved himself later .on in the
day, as nimble on his pins as his Zulu brethren of
South Africa, winning the Minstrels' race in
grand form. The events were well contested,
tfhrougl .out, and some fine running was displayed
during; the day. The 100 yards race for officers of
the regiment was a very pretty thing, and after a
grand.!struggle at the finish, was cleverly won by
Lieut-.'Eden. The quarter mile race open tobffilcers
of the Army and Navy brought but few competi-
tors to the starting post (owing probably to the ab-
sence4 of the fleet.) Lieut, Maloney of the XIXth
howe wer ran away from all the rest and won pretty
much as he liked. With their proverbial hospitality
the o officers invited their guests to a sumptuous
lunch, which had beefi most tastefully laid out in
the mi ,ssroom, where everything that could please
the ey -e and gratify the palate was to be had in
abund anoe. At the close of the.day- Mrs.- Bennett
very k indly gave away the prizes and brought a
pleasai it day to a successful termination.

.- ONION ROGUES. -
To the Editor qf the Royal Gazette.
Sm,-Would you allow me to draw attention to
a 'circumstance which, if not soon put a stop to,
will tend. materially to affect the sale of Bermuda:
reduce .in the HaliSax market P I allude- to the'
fact of parties clearlyy rogues) who caused to be
forwarded, by last Beta, sundry boxes of onions,.
which, looking fairly through the bars, on being
opened proved to be perfect 'rubbish.' Out of
one of these boxes, consigned to a respectable
house, I purchased a pound, for which I paid six
cents. -I counted the'onions and found eighteen;
the largest weighing. 1 joz.; the smallest (and there
were several of this size) 6 oz.; and these were a fair
sample of the whole botx. The rogue who forward-'
ed evidently grew them in shallow, poor, and un-
manuredsoil, as the ;tubers were quite ripe and
hard. He took good care not to put, any mark
whatever on the box, a though it bore a number-on
one end, probably made by the agent who shipped,
it. But' this is not all: I find on going about the
town, at retail dealers' shop doors, boxes opened
and labelled "Bermuda Onions," and most of these,
contain tubers just like my sample, say a dozen,
good ones, and all the rest perfect 'buttons.' Now,
Sir, it-is high time some law was put in force -in'
Bermuda to prevent this wholesale roguery, for the
consignment, as a rule, is so bad this last steamer,'
that in many cases the sale of boxes of onions may,
be considered as nothing less than obtaining money"
under false pretences. Bermuda could easily pre-
vent all this if shechose by making it illegal to:
ship root crops without placing full name and ad-
dress of producer, in stencil or otherwise, on the
package. As it is, the purchasers of these goods
'abroad are victimized without remedy; the really
honest planters suffer seriously from having their
consignments mixed up with those of dishonest
traders; and the islands are gradually getting. a
name by no means calculated to raise them in the
rank of countries noted for honorable dealing.

(,, NADA PACIFIC RAILWAY.
The Pacific Railway Resolutions introduced by,
Dr. Tupper into ihe House of Commons at Ottawa
on the 10th instant, provide that one hundred mil-
lion acres of land and all the minerals they contain
be appropriated for the purposes of constructing the
Canadian Pacific Railway ; that the land be vested
in Commissioners, to be specially appointed, and
that the Imperial Government be represented on the
Commission; that all the ungranted land within
twenty miles of the line of the Canada Pacific Rail-
way, belonging to the Dominion, be vested in such
Commission ; and that when the lands along the line
of the Canada Pacific Railway are not of fair aver-
age quality for settlement a corresponding quantity
of lands of fair average quality shall be appropri-
ated' in other parts of the country, to the extent in
all of one hundred millions of acres; that said Com-
missioners be authorized to sell, from time to time,
any portion of said lands, at a price to be fixed by
the Governor in Council on their recommendation,
at a rate of not less than two dollars per acre ; and
that they be required to invest the proceeds of such
sales in Canadian Government securities, to be held
exclusively for the purpose of defraying the cost of
the construction of the Canada Pacific Railroad.
That, in the existing state of things, it is desirable
to combine the promotion of colonization with the

That the selection of the Burrard Inlet terminus

they may deem necessary for the said purpose, and

During the debate Dr. Tupper stated that there
was a great change of opinion among capitalists as
to the lending of money on great undertakings.
The Crown Lands amounted to 180 millions of
acres. Ex-Premier McKenzie stated that be had
offered Foreign capitalists 20,000 acres of land and
$10,000 cash per mile, and 4 per cent on such ba-
lance as might be required to build the road. No
terms could be more favourable, yet no offer was
made to accept them.
THE CANADIAN INSOLVENT ACT NOT TO BE RE-

A general impression prevails that the Letellier
question will be referred to the Judicial Committee
of the English Privy Council for decision. The
rumor which has appeared in one or two journals,
betting forth that the question had been referred
back to the decision of the Governor General and
Privy Council of the Dominion, is understood to be
entirely without foundation.
Paw, a clerk in the Halifax Post Office, was tried
before the Supreme Court on the 6th May, charged
with abstracting mail matter, and acquitted by the
Jury. The evidence adduced was that of Post-
master Blackadar, to whom complaints of missing
mail matter had been made, who stated that on the
22nd March he enclosed marked money in a letter
addressed to Baldwin & Co., Halifax, in an envelope
specially obtained and stamped at Quebec two
days previously and dropped the letter into the
Quebec mail that afternoon as it was being opened.

Power searched Paw, who assisted to sort the mail,
and found on his person the two notes which the
Postmaster had enclosed in the decoy letter. Oh
' the opening of the Court next day, Judge James
expressed his surprise that the Jury had acquitted
Paw in the face of the most conclusive evidence of
guilt. He dismissed six of the Jury in accordance
with the Act of last Session which permits a Judge
to discharge a Jury, if he see fit. .

LONDON, May 14.--In the House, of Common
last night Mr. Dillwyn, Liberal, moved that in th
opinion of the House it was necessary that th
limits of prerogative should be more strialy ob
served, so as to prevent Minsters, under cover-r
the supposed personal interposition of the Sove
reign, from withdrawing from the cognizance of th
House matters which are properly within the scop
Mr. Gladstone called attention to the fact tha
the House had already approved several acts of th
Government which the motion proposed to censure
He regarded the allegations of the motion untimel
and not supported by fact.
Sir Stafford Northcote announced that the Gov-
ernment had decided to meet the motion by a di-
The Marquis of Hartington almost paraphrased
Mr. Gladstone's declarations.
Mr. Cross, the Home Secretary, announced that
he was authorized to state that the letter of the
Queen to Lady Frere was merely a general expres-
sion of sympathy.
The debate was adjourned for one week. The'
motion is certain to be overwhelmingly rejected.
Much confusion was caused by the motion-which
in its original form implied that the Queen had
acted unconstitutionally-being at the last moment
remodelled into a simple vote of censure of the
Ministers. The original motion would have met
with even less support than the present one.
A Bill legalising marriage with a deceased wife's
sister, was presented to thelHouse of Lords on May
6, by the Prince of Wales, who said he believed the
measure would be a great advantage. It was s-o.
conded by Lord Houghton.
The Government, represented by Lord Cran-
brook, strongly opposed it. On the second reading
it was defeated-101 to 81.
The Prince of Wales, Duke of Edinburgh, and
Bishop of Ripon voted with the minority, and four.
teen Bishops with the majority.
In the House of Commons a declaratory resolu-
tion was introduced by Farren Herschel in favor of
abolishing action of breach of promise, except in.
cases where actual pecuniary loss had been incur-
red by reason of promise. It was carried by 106
yeas to 65 nays.

Negotiations with Yakoob Khan.-The English pa.
pers do not believe that fresh difficulties have arisen
in the peace negotiations with Yakoob Khan at
Gundamak. The opinion prevails in London that,
as the statements of the Standard's correspondent
at Lahore, on two conspicuous occasions, when he
reported an advance of the British troops on Cabul,
and when be announced the terms of a settlement
with Yakoob Khan, proved to have been utterly
unfounded, not much importance, therefore, should
be attached to his report that fresh difficulties have
arisen in the peace negotiations at Gundamak.
[The Standard has usually been well informed as to
the intentions of the British respecting Afghan.
The advance to Gundamak was in reality a step to.
ward Cabul. That difficulties have arisen ,in the
negotiations with Yakoob Khan is doubtless a fact.3

A GLOOMY OUTLOOK.-LONDON, May 1I0.--The
Times says attention has been draw to the probable
effects of the continuance of cold northerly winds
upon agricultural prospects, which are already suf-
ficiently unfavorable. Unless changege occurs
soon in the temperature there can be little or no
fruit, and there may probably be a serious de-
ficiency in several crops, which means larger pay.
ments than usual to foreign growers, and eventually
dearer money. Prominent among their prospective
deficient yields on the continent is silk, cold winds
keeping back the mulberry leaves upon which the silk
worm feeds. The flow of silver to China and Japan
will probably be increased from this cause.

of Colonel Alston, was tried at Atalanta, Ga., on the
7th instant, found guilty, and sentenced to be con-
fined in the Penitentiary at hard labour for and
during his natural life. Cox received the verdict
with calmness and stoicism, having evidently nerv-
ed himself for the worst. His wife sat for a moment
trembling with emotion, then rushed for an open
window near by with the intention of throwing
herself to the ground below. As she reached the
window she was caught by Cox, who held her fast.
She threw her arms around his neck. and clung to
him, wildly exclaiming: "Oh my GOD! Oh my
poor darling !" Her shrieks were heartrending,
and the occupants of the crowded courtroom could
not restrain tears of pity. Cox used all his powers
to calm hbr, and finally soothed her grief until only
her deep moans broke upon the solemn stillness.

From the New York The South," April, 1879.
A QUICK PASSAGE--THE STEAMSHIP LINE, ETC.
Hamilton, Bermuda, March 14, 1879.
Last summer, when in the States," I wrote for
the South, a little about Bermuda; and now, being
on the spot. I am tempted to write another.
We left New York on the morning of the twenty-
eighth of February, arriving here at Hamilton early
on the third of March, thus making the passage of
seven hundred miles in three days, having favorable
winds and a cloudless sky all the time. Of course,
with a strong wind it was rather rough, but we
congratulated ourselves, that like many things in
life; though the way was rough, it was short. As
I think, in my former letter, (1 have not a copy by
me) I gave a general description of Bermuda, I
will confine myself, at this time, to a few particu-
lars; and before going farther, will say a little more
concerning the steamer, etc., between here and New
York. It belongs to the Quebec and Gulf Ports
Steamship Company, and leaves New York and
Hamilton each alternate Thursday. During what
is called the "crop seasQi," however, beginning
about the first of April, two steamers are on the
route, leaving each port every Thursday. The
steamer doing regular duty the year round is the
" Canima," a staunch, Clyde-built vessel, long and
narrow, decidedly given to rolling, but making all
the passages in the five years she has been running,
without any accident whatever, at least as far as I
know. She is manned by English officers, each one
knowing well his duty and attending to it, and
withal, kind and courteous to the passengers. The
commander, Captain Liddicoat, is one of the most
genial men I ever met, as well as one of the best of
Hamilton Hotel is the largest and best on these
islands. It stands on a hill overlooking the har-
bour and surrounding country. It is kept, at pre-
sent, by Mr. Mellen, formerly of the Royal Victoria
Hotel, at Nassau, and the table is excellent, being
well -supplied with the best things the 'markets of
Bermuda and New York can furnish.
FRUITS.-Bermuda, was once celebrated for its
ori'nges, lemons, figs, and peaches, but these have
all more or h-ss run out. Bananas are abundant,
and a kind of yellow plum called "loquatts," fully
ripe just now. Limes, too, are quite plenty, and
the papaw, in size and shape like a lemon, growing
diregtly from the top of the trunk of a tall, slim
tred without branches. In private gardens one
often finds strawberries in full ripeness in February
and March. On the 6th!of March a basket of de-
licious strawberries, grown in the open air, was sent
to me. The guava, of which the celebrated jelly of
that name is made, is also found here, and is deli-
cious. Then there is the "cherrimoya" or sugar
apple, the outside in rough scales, the inside sweet
and custardy, in a triangular sort of compartment,
each containing a seed about the size of our com-
mon white bean. Peas, string-beans, tomatoes and
lettuce are raised in abundance in private gar-
dens. Onions, potatoes, tomatoes and arrowroot
are sent in quantities, as all the world knows, to
the New York market.
GUESTS FROM THE STATES.-This hotel at present
is well filled with guests, many of them from New
York, among whom are J. Z. Russell and wife, Dr.
DuBois, wife, son and daughter, and J. J. Jay,
wife and daughters. "What do you do to amuse
yourselves ?" may be asked. 0, there is no lack of
enjoyment and amusement. The fact that one may
be out of doors the day long, even in midwinter, is
often amusement enough of itself; although this
last winter has been colder and wetter than any
that has been known for forty years.
THE DRIVES all all over the islands are full of
interest; the roads are excellent, in many places
cut out from the solid rock, from the crevices of
which shoot forth lovely ferns and little delicate
flowers. The whole islands are of calcareous form-
ation, a mixture of coral reefs and sand, and all the
houses are built of this kind of stone, which is so
soft and porous that it is generally cut out with a
common saw, in great blocks, for building. It
hardens with time, and as there is never a frost
here to touch it, is very durable, lasting for scores
of years. The houses are mostly white, sometimes
stained a delicate pink or yellow. They are rarely
more than two stories in height, often only one, all
having verandahs and blinds, not double ones like
ours at home, opening in the middle, but whole
and hinged at the top and kept back by a long iron
rod. Few houses have any arrangement for fires,
except for cooking, and not a church on the island
has a heating apparatus of any sort; yet all the
doors and windows are as wide open in January as
TRAVLLLING AMONG THE IsLANDS.-In driving
along, as the islands are narrow, you are rarely
without glimpses of the sea, while often it stretches
miles and miles beyond you, the water of the lovli-
est imaginable hues, here blue, there a delicate
green, beyond exquisite opal tints. Those who like
boating find a never-failing pleasure in rowing or
sailing in and out among the countless little islands
and bays. By bridges and ferries you may drive
from one extremity of the islands to the other. The
roads are so good you bowl along at a quick pace,
never molested by dust or mud. In meeting a
carriage you turn to the left, and not to the right,
as in our country. Everywhere you see something
to attract your attention, a picturesque house, a
clump of trees, flowers blooming all winter in the
open air, and in great profusion and variety. The
drive to St. George, ten or twelve miles from Ham-
ilton, is *full of varied interest, the road winding
round and round, one time on a jutting promon-
tory, another along a sheltered cove; everywhere
the ocean in its serenest,. loveliest aspect, that is
when the day is fine. The approach to St. George
is by a causeway, built over a series of-reefs, end-
ing with a swinging bridge for boats to pass. It
took more than four years to build this causeway,
and it cost the colony over $150,000. It is about
two miles in length, and the drive over it is lovely
-on the right a sea of islands, on the left a sea of
On the way to St. George you can, if you like,
visit some of the most remarkable caves on the
islands, where the stalactites and fret work of the
walls and roofs look like the most delicate marble
tracery. Near the Walsingham cave is a cala-
bash tree, under which, it is said, Moore often sat
when he was here (in 1804 I think). To have a
calabash from this tree is the longing wish of every
visitor to these Islands. Of course all cannot be
gratified in this wish, though I was so fortunate as
to get one at my first visit there four years ago.
The town of St. George is finely situated, rising
up in steep acclivities from the sea, with a commo-
dious harbor, more easily accessible than that of
Hamilton, and very strongly fortified, Fort Cun-
-.ningham being, next to Gibraltar, the greatest fort
in the English dominions. Across from St. George
is St. David, one of the five largest islands forming
the Bermudas, and the farthest east-by-north in
the cluster. It is said that many of its inhabitants
have never been off that island, and, until recently,
such benighted individuals had never seen a horse.
Another pleasant excursion is to Ireland Island,
where is Her Majesty's dockyard, and where every-
thing is built after the most solid and substantial
manner. There, too, is the floating dock, the
SBermuda," the largest in the world, capable of
holding vessels of the greatest size. It was built in
England, and was towed over here by five ships,
arriving June 28th, 1869. It is 380 feet long, 124
feet wide, and 75 feet deep, and lies in a basin of
the most solid stone-work, 52 feet below low water
Have I said that Bermuda is an English colony, I
and has been so since 1685 ? The Governor re-
ceives his appointment from the Crown, and holds '
his office from five to seven years. His salary is
2,946 (not quite $14,000), 700 of which is paid
by the colony, 47 from quit-rents," and the re-
mainder by the English government. Mount
Langton" is the name of the Governor's house, and
here are held frequent afternoon receptions, open
to all residents and visitors. They generally take
place out of doors, the grounds being very exten..
sive and well kept. They long to the colony,
while Clarence Hill," the Adaixtl's seat, belongs
to the English government. Here, too, when the
Admiral is at home, the most delightful entertain.
ments are given-afternoon dances and lawn par-
ties-the band of the flag-ship discoursing most
I have thus, in a most desultory manner, given a
little insight into Bermuda life. Should the read-
ing it by any one give as much pleasure as the
writing it has to me, I shall be more than repaid
for my labour. J. A. E.

The strong hold which beer has attained in the
United States was wonderfully attested by the com-
parative displays at the Paris Exposition of last year,
where, in spite of the strongest and most powerful
opposition from the brewers of the old world, those
of the new carried off the major portion of the high
prizes for excellence in this grand old German
drinks. Beer drinking has increased at a rapid rate
in America, and has kept pace, step by, step, with
the rising excellence of the brews. The census of
1880 will tell a tale that will stagger the opponents
of this harmless and healthful beverage, but until
then, the amount of its consumption can only be
approximated. One of the results of the high grad.
ed beers of America has been a steady growth in
the export demand, and American-made beers are
to be found in all the markets of the world, where a
few years ago the brewers of Europe held the reins
of monopoly. Among the leading exporting firms
who have been eminently successful, is Messrs. Win.
F. Kuntz & Co., winners of one of the high medals
at Paris. The beers of this house are well termed
" Champagne Beer," from the carefulness and ex-
cellence of their bottling. They use only the finest
brews, and their beers are warranted to retain their
strength and flavor in any climate. They have had
their goods severely tested in Australia, India, South
America, and the West Indies, and no more telling
latitudes could be attained than these. Messrs.
Kuntz & Co are steadily engaged in filling orders,
and their coming season's trade promises to be un-
usually heavy. Their New York address is 94
Spring Street.-Boston Journal of Commerce, April
THE BURIED TREgASURE.-A French merchant
was agreeably surprised by the receipt of an anony-
mous communication advising him that a box of
treasure was buried in his garden, and that the
exact whereabouts would be shown him if he agreed
to an equal division of the spoil. He jumped at
the offer, met his kind informant, and the pair were
soon plying spades, their labor being rewarded by
the unearthing of a box, full of silver coins. The
delighted merchant counted out two pHes of 800
five-franc pieces, and bade his partner take his
share. That worthy, after contemplating his heap
for a minute or two, observed it was rather too
heavy a load to carry comfortably to the railway
station; he would prefer having the amount in,
gold or notes, if it could be managed. No-
thing was easier; a walk up to the house and
the business was settled entirely to his satisfaction
and that of the merchant too. Twenty-four hours
later the good man took a very different view of
the transaction, for upon examination he discovered
there was not one genuine five-franc piece among
the 1,600.-Chambers's Journal.
A NEW PLANET FOUND.-WASHINGTON, May 3.-
The Smithsonian Institution reports that the Obser-
vatory of Berlin announces the discovery, by Palisa,
on the 28th of April, 1879, of a planet of the twelfth
magnitude, in 13 hours 2 minutes right ascension,
100 1' south declination, with a daily motion north.
A TRAIN BLowN FRoM THE TRACK.-OGDEN,
Utah, May 3.-There was a terrible wind-storm
along the Utah and Northern Railway yesterday.
A freight train near Round Valley, Idaho, consist-
ing of 16 cars, some loaded with silver bullion, was
blown from the track and some of the cars were car.
ried a distance of 75 feet.
. LARGE CONTRACT FOR STEEL RAILs.-The Highland
Railway Company have just entered into a contract
for 5.000 tons of steel rails. The price is 4 7/6 per
ton at the makers' works, about the lowest figure for
steel rails that has yet bden beard of in this country.
Competition for the contract was very keen, and the
successful offerers are the West Cumberland Steel and
Iron Company, Workington. Herr Krupp, of the
famous cannon manufacturing works in Germany, was
among the competitors for the contract, and his offer,
after stipulating to deliver the rails free of charge or
freight in this country, was within 2/ per ton of that
which has been accepted by the company. The price
of steel rails five years ago was from `16 to 18 per
The construction of the railway bridge over the Forth
was commenced on April 4, by Mr. John Waddell, con.
tractor, Edinburgh. The foundation was laid of one

Queensferry. The towers on Inch Garvie are to form
the centre supports of the structure, and will be up-
wards of 500 beet in height.
