Do not be troubled or dispirited because you have
not great virtues. God made a million blades of
grass when He made one tree. The earth is fringed

Only see that ytu have enough of little virtues and

years in the art of Preserving Fruits, Ve-

On Wednesday morning last at 7 o'clock the Steam-
ship fra. otf Newcast le. Captain Johnstone, from
Bonah bound to Philadelphia, with a cargo of iron ore,
ran ashore on the Flat near Mill's Breaker-about two
and a. half miles from land-while going at a speed of
seven knots. Fortunately the tide was low at the time.
Several boats from the shore were soon alongside but the
Capt. declined their assistance, and was guided by the
advice and suggestions of Capt. Boggs, the boarding Of-
ficer of the Underwriter's Agent for the United States.
After throwing overboard about 80 tons of the Ore from
forward, and filling the after tanks with water, she
came off at lood tide and proceeded on her voyage,
about 1 o'clock, the Vessel being tight and without any
apparent damage. The Captain had no chart of the
Bermudas and ran in between Mill's Breaker" and the
shore under the impression that deep water prevailed
throughout. She was no great distal ce from the spot
where tbe. eaumaris Castle met her fate, and would
probably have fared a like fate, had not the Captain
acted with promptness and energy.
The Barque North Carolina, from Liverpool, with

'h Episcopalian appears again, in the last issue of
theSt.G George's Colonist, dissatisfied still and seeming-
ly best pleased to remain so. Assumption and intoler-
ance we hold to be undesirable in both clergy and laity,
and more especially pernicious in the former. The
Press, as a matter of news, has widely published all
Church dissensions. After all the extremists are but
a small Traction of the great body of English Church-
men. It is unfair to take exceptional cases and hold
them up as the rule. In the one cited Bishop Macrone
has so far done his duty in the case of the contuma-
cious Dean Green oi Pietermaritzburg. We are quite
aware that recent litigation in matters Ecclesiastical,
has i'aised several difficulties in enforcing obedience to
Episcopal decisions. But notwithstanding the great
bulk of the clergy submit to their Bishop's rulings with
a ready mind, and the people respect them. Should
any bcneficed clergyman in Bermuda prove refractory,
after being' admonished by the Bishop, we presume the
m inachinery here, would prove effectual in securing
Either his (1,.'sitii.,n or compliance with due require-
ilents. The Endowment Fund will be largely under
the control oi the laity. Endowments in Bermuda are
never likely to be so substantial that legislative aid,
and voluntary contributions can be dispensed with to
secure efficient clerical services. We started with the
as-rtion which Episcopalian does not attempt to
controvert, that the people have now an additional
powerin Church affairs through the establishment of a
Synod, both a necessity and a safeguai'd, but by no
means a panacea for all possible imaginative evils.
We countenance no conte:ds between the clergy and
their flocks, we advocate their identity of interest, and
their hearty co-operation in the furtherance of true re.
ligion. Our English Clergy are drawn from among our-
sthres, educated under the same influences and fired
with the same national aspirations, and as a body en-
titled to be held in the highest public estimation.

MARY SusAN LOTTIMO.-I live at "Greenfield."
Am a married woman. I knew Anna Skeeters.
She lived near me. I last saw her on a Sunday
evening in October. I came away from Church
with her and parted with her opposite to Mrs. Hew-
lett's. I think it would take her about five minutes
to get to her house. She was' alone. She came to
my house the same day before Church about 4 p.m.
She was dressed for Church. She stayed about 2
minutes. She had a white ground and blue spot-
ted dress, a white jacket, a white hat, dressed
with white and black, a waterproof, and she had
books in herhand. I did not notice a fan or girdle
or dress-holder. Did not notice an umbrella or
parasol. She usually wore boots. She used to
wear striped stockings sometimes. It was between
half past 8 and 1 to 9 when I parted from her; it
was dark, not raining. I saw prisoner at the har-
bor early that evening. He was alone. He was
dressed in good clothes. When I parted with Anna
she seemed to be in good health and spirits. I next
saw the prisoner on the following evening at her,
(Anna's), aunts. I found him there. I heard
him say to Letitia Simmons that she had gone and
taken his money and he did not know where to find
her. Letitia asked if there was any difference be-
tween the two and what caused her to go away; he
did not know, that he would not mind about her
going so her got his money. I turned away with
Anna's daughter, Lydia Burt, and went down to
Mr. Taylor's Store and round to Mangrove Bay.
Nothing else was said to him or by him before we
left. He trembled very much during the conversa-
tion. We left him at Letitia Simmons's. He did
not say he was going back to his cottage that night.
I saw him several times that week. I did not see
him on Tuesday. I can't say if I saw him on
Wednesday. I next saw him at his own house but
I did not speak to him. It was while his house
was searched. I never on any other occasion had
any conversation with him about his wife. I fre-
quently visited his wife. I saw her in the Church-
yard on the Sunday night before service. I came
away with her. I was at prisoner's cottage only
once after Anna disappeared. I saw some of her
clothes there and I examined her clothes there. I
did not miss any clothes that I knew Anna had
owned. Did not see the clothes Anna wore on the
Sunday. I knew she had other clothes besides
those I saw there. I can't remember all. I can
remember 4 dresses, 3 petticoats, 2 night dresses, 3
calico jackets, aprons-I don't know how many-
boots, a hat-the hat she wore on Sunday-a water-
proof. That's all I remember. I don't know
rightly where she kept her clothes. She was tidy
and particular in her ways. The clothes I saw at
the house, were on the floor, some clean and some
soiled, they were in the kitchen. I have seen the
3 jackets since. It was at Policeman Siggins's.
They were quite clean. I have not seen the 4
dresses since. I have seen one of the petticoats at
Mr. Siggins's. It was quite wet. It was torn in
half. I saw other wet clothes, part of a chemise,
part of a robin, part of a slip body and a pair of
drawers, all wet with salt water. I saw them
while the Coroner's Inquest was going on. I re-
cognized these clothes as those of Anna Skeeters.
I did not recognize them as clothes she wore on the
Sunday. The Coroner's Inquest was held at Mr.
Siggins's. I did not see Anna's white parasol or
fan in the cottage the day I was there. I knew the
petticoat by the tuck. I guided her about the
tuck and she put it on in my presence. That pet-
ticoat was torn when I saw her at Siggins's. It
was dirty. It looked as if it had been under water.
All the clothes were dirty and discolored. I knew
the chemise was Anna's by the piece let in at the
shoulder-that was torn. There was a pair of
stays I recognized. They were in two parts-se-
parated. It had an iron busk. They were separa-
ted behind. She mended those stays in my pres-
ence. They were patched with duck. I saw her
mend them last September. The other things she
mended in the early part of the summer. The
drawers were in fragments. I did not see any
stockings among the wet clothes, or boots. The
diver was present at Siggins's when I was there. I
saw him produce some hair. That hair was wet.
(Hair produced and shewn to witness.) That is
the same hair. It had little gray hairs through it.
I had several times dressed her hair for her. Her
hair had one plait behind on the Sunday. I am
certain that that was Anna's hair. (Another lot of
hair shewn to the witness.) This seems to be some
of the same hair. This is the petticoat I spoke of.
These are the stays I spoke of. They are imported
stays. This is part of the chemise. I did not
know that Anna wore a red flannel bandage.
(More hair shewn to the witness ) This seems to
be the same but it is the combings. Anna wore a
pair of red striped stockings like this one now
shewn me. I sometimes made dresses for her. She
would ordinarily wear a flannel petticoat, an outer
dress, a jacket, a hat and a waterproof-that would
compose her entire dress. I did not see a flannel
petticoat among the wet clothes. That is the pat-
tern of her dress she wore on Sunday. (Some
scraps of clbth shewn to the witness.) I recognize
this dress, this overskirt, this jacket. I made those
three. This linen jacket I recognize; I cut it.
This calico jacket I also cut and made. This
striped waist I recognize. The calico jacket is
soiled and the waist rough dried. These aprons
are also hers. They are clean and rough dried. I
don't remember this petticoat. This night dress I
recognize; it is soiled. These cuffs I recognize as
hers; they have been washed and ironed. This
wrapper Idon't recognize, nor the stays, nor the
chemise. I recognize this wadded petticoat. This
slip body I don't recognize. I recognize this over-
skirt and also this print overskirt. I don't recog-
nize these drawers. I recognize this chemisette. I
don't recognize this muslin body, nor this flannel
petticoat. I recognize this colored waist. This
petticoat I don't recognize. I recognize this jack-
et. This bolster case and pillow slip I don't re-
cognize. I recognize these blue striped stockings
as being hers, but not the others. The things I re-
Scognize compose nearly the whole of her wardrobe
except some things missing. The things missing
are a waterproof, 3 dresses, a hat and boots. I
knew Anna had a fan and a holder, but I can't
swear to these. I also knew she had a parasol like
this, but I can't swear this is the same. Afina was
a little taller than myself-don't know how tall I
am. She was a light colored woman. We did not
meet any one on our way from Church on the Sun-
day night. Anna Skeeters twice stopped at my
house of a night. She did so in March 1878. I
can't remember the other time but it was since then.
The prisoner did not come after her. I told him
he had accused me of harboring her at my place.
I told him she stayed there twice when she was
shut out of doors. He said if I did not harbor her
some one did. This conversation took place the
night after Anna was missing. -
Cross-Examined.-Anna Skeeters and I were great
friends. I saw her every day. I don't know how
many children she had had. She has a daughter
now living. It is not the prisoner's child. She
stopped at my house about 2 minutes on the Sun-
day. She went away by herself. I next saw her on
Sunday evening in Churchyard. She was with me.
That was before service. I saw Elizabeth Skeeters
there. She was not with me. Anna and I went in-
to the Church together. Elizabeth Skeeters went in
before us. I am not certain whether Anna sat with
Elizabeth Skeeters. Anna sat. 3 pews before
me. She had on a white hat. While she was
waiting for me at my house I noticed how her
teenth's men are adorned with trinkets taken from
the Canadian trappings, and each man wearsia
sample of the plaid of the marquis of Lorne, bear-
ing the pictures of the Princess and Marquis. The
Princess:Louise Dragoon Guards galloped alongside
the train for several blocks, cheering and waving
their brass helmets. Cheers were continuous until
the train dashed into Victoria Bridge. Four men-

forenoon 'with a friend at one of the small islands-

SARAHii AN BuRT.-I am not a married woman.
I knew Anna Skeeters all her life. She lived about
j of an hour's walk from me. We are'two sisters'
children. I saw her about a fortnight before-she
was missing at my house. Her daughter did 'not
live with her. Anna's name was Evans before she
married. I never visited her after she married. I
was once to her house about 2 years before she was
missing. She frequently visited me. 1 live with
her aunt and mine too. -Prisoner never made a
practice of coming to my- house. I saw prisoner
after he was taken up, but not before, after Anna
was missing. This piece of red flannel bandage I
know. About six weeks before she was missing I
met her near Mr. Gilbert's store, and she had this
bandage in her hand. It, is made in a.peculiar
way; I am positive this is the same. This also is
a piece of the same flannel bandage, ,it has three
button holes, and the other part has three buttons.
This hair I recognize as that of Anna Skeeters. I
have often seen her hair dressed in that way. I
knew she had grey hairs in her head.- She was a
quiet, peaceable woman. This is a part of her .lair
too. She had a pair of striped stockings like this
single one. I saw some colored clothing before the
Magistrate I knew she wore, and I missed some.
I missed a blue calico dress like this pattern shown
me. I missed a long white jacket. 1 have not
seen any hat belonging to her since she was miss-
ing. She had been married 9 years. I know her
daughter Lydia; she is about 15 or 16 years of age
I think; she Was born some time before she was
married to the prisoner.
Cross-examined.-She had two children by the
prisoner; both are dead. I saw a part of the band-
age before Mr. Keane at the inquest; it was wet;
I understood the diver brought it in. When I first
saw the bandage I think it was new.

S THE THIRTEENTH IN MONTREAL.
Welcomed by the Marquis of Lorne.-Banquetted
at the Windsor Hotel.-MONTREAL, May 24.-The
sixtieth birthday of Queen Victoria was to-day cele-
prated as her national day was never before celebrat-
ed in her Canadian possessions. The city was-over-
flowing with soldiers and visitors. Business was
suspended, and everything and everybody were in
holiday dress. The presence of a favorite daughter
of the Queen combined with the visiting Thirteenth
Regiment of Brooklyn to stir the.sober old city to its
depths. The Thirteenth Regiment members -were
welcomed everywhere, and the Americans also made
themselves popular. The Canadian officers and
soldiers are unstinted in thier praise of the regiment.
Four thousand Canadian militia formed line in the
Mount*Royal Park, and, with the Thirteenth Regi.
ment in central position, 'was reviewed by the Mar-
quis of Lorne and the Princess Louise and their
suite. The Marquis addressed the regiment, saying:
"Officers and soldiers of the gallant Thirteenth, I
welcome you in our Queen's name to Canada, and
I thank you for coming to-day to do honour to her
Majesty on her birthday. We are brothers in blood
and in great traditions, and we rejoice to see you to-
day as our brothers in arms." The regiment appear-
ed at its best, and, when the feu-de-joie salute was
fired, executed its part unerringly. In the sham
battle, as was prearranged, the Thirteenth gave. the
coup de grace, and were complimented by the Mar-
quis for their skill and grace. Four thousand five
hundred soldiers sat down to a dinner in Crystal
Palace, and the utmost good feelingprevailed among
them. In the evening a banquet was given in the
Windsor Hotel to the officers of the Thirteenth. The
regiment start for home to-morrow night.
I The Marquis was a guest at the banquet, and
Made several speeches. When the toast to the regi.
meant was proposed, he joined Canadian officers in
singing "They are jolly good fellows."
SST. ALBANS, Vt., May 25.-The regiment was
followed to the Bonaventure depot in Montreal by
seven or eight thousand people. The Canadian
troops formed an alley in the depot though
which the Thirteenth passed, shaking hands arid
exchanging farewells, while the Canadian band play-
ed "Hail Columbia," and the Thirteenths -band
played "God Save the Queen." As the train passed
out of the depot Canadians grasped the hands ex*
tended from the car windows. The soldiers exchang-
ed buttons freely, and one Canadian stripped off his
jacket and another threw his bearskin into the train
as trophies. The uniforms of a number of the Thir-

A District Ruled by an Amazon Queen, Who Killed
11Her Cowardly Husband.
Dr. Leitner, the eminent linguist and philologist,
has just communicate,' to the Civil and Military Ga-
zette of India a translation of a narrative of travel given
to him by a native of Kafirstan. This man was a body
servant of the late Ameer for many years, including
the time when Shere Ali had yet to win the throne of
Afghanistan, and it was during this eventful period that
the Kafir came across a modern edition of Queen Pen-
tAesilea. Having been ordered by his master to fetch -
a supply of dates from Regi, a town some sixteen miles
distant from. Herat, the messenger came across a dis-
trict ruled over by a woman, whose name was never
allowed to be mentioned. In addition to great person-
al attractions she claimed direct descent from the hero, I
Rustam, nor did she show much degeneracy from her
reputed ancestry. For on one occasion General Fera-
morz Khan, himself a Kafir and the uncle of Dr. Leit-
ner's informant, paid her a visit, with the view of im-
pressing camels for the service of Shere Ali. Jumping
on her horse and carrying a trusty spear in her hand
the Amazon Queen rode out to meet the General, whom
she informed that she was ready to fight either the whole
of his master's forces or the Ameer himself in single
combat should he prefer that alternative. Feramorz
Khan was so scared by her warlike demeanor that he
took himself off without seizing a single camel, and
the plucky Queen was left untroubled for the future.
Perhaps it was just as lucky for Shere Ali that he did
not accept the challenge to personal combat, for !he
dauntless lady was no mean proficient in warlike arts,
being accustomed to take a prominent part at tent peg-
ging and polo among the nobles of her land. When
the Kafir was staying at her fort she was a widow, hav-
ing lately put her husband to death by reason of his
being deficient in physical courage. It was under-
stood, however, that she would be quite willing to
change her condition, and several of the neighboring
chiefs had made her offers of marriage. But to one
and all there was the same fatal objection-they were
not brave enough to come up to her idea of what a
husband should be. In addition to being a feminine
Rustam in the field, she cultivated the arts of peace
with a thoroughness not usually found among Oriental
rulers. An energetic merchant herself, with many
thousands of camels constantly carrying merchandise
to and from the outside world, she encouraged her
subjects to trade by suppressing dacoitec and putting
a stop to kidnapping, a favorite weakness with the
Afghans. Altogether, almost as model a ruler as the
two Begums of Bhopal, past and present.
A notice of curious interest appears in the Ber-
liner Zettung which, taken by itself, would lead to
alarming conclusions upon the dread of revolution
which haunts Continental governments in the present
crisis. According to this journal, so minute are
the precautions which even in the German govern-
ment adopts that the corps of Guards quartered at
Berlin have ordered to desist from receiving opposi-
tion journals in barracks, and regular inspection is
directed to be made by the officers so as to prevent
any of the prohibited newspapers from being in the
possession of the men.
A man once asked a servant, Is your master at
home ?"-" No; he's out."-" Your mistress ?"-
"No, sir! she's out too."-" Well, I'll just stop and
take a warm at the fire till they come in."-"Faith
and that's out, too."
