MEMORIALS OF THE DISCOVERY AND
EARLY SETTLEMENT OF THE BERMU-
DAS OR SOMERS' ISLANDS 1511-1687, COM-
PILED FROM THE COLONIAL RECORDS
ANJ) OTHER ORIGINAL SOURCES BY
LT.-GENERAL SIR J. H. LEFROY, C.B.,
K.C.M.G., F.R.S., &c. -1878.
The second and concluding volume of Lefroy's
Bermuda has just been issued in the same attrac-
tive and creditable form as the first volume. Sup-
plementary information has been obtained from the
Public Record Office in London, and the history of
Bermuda has been brought down to its coming
immediately under the jurisdiction of the Crown.
We have now followed the development of the
Colony of Bermuda from the infant Plantation of
sixty souls in 1612 into the sturdy little community
which now exists, to perplex colonial administrators
by its anomalous constitution, and its claims to a
measure of self government never before enjoyed
under a monarchy by so small a body of people.
. in retiring himself from the field, the
writer cannot but express his hope that some native
of the islands will take up the theme where he
leaves it, and give to colonial history hereafter a se-
quel to the present memorials." The writer," we
now quote from his preface, cannot conclude his la-
bour without holding up to the imitation of Colo-
nies contemporary with Bermuda the remarkable
and enlightened liberality shown by its Legislature
in providing for the expense of the present publica-
tion. Diligent search in Antigua, the Bahamas,
Barbadoes, St. Cristopher, Jamaica, Montserrat,
Nevis, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Sco-
tia, Prince Edward Island, followed up at the Record
Office in London, could scarcely fail to recover out
of public or private sources matter, if not so copious,
as interesting to their present and future inhabitants
as well calculated to stimulate and satisfy a spirit
of intelligent enquiry and as illustrative of English
social history. Those who are well acquainted with
the Bermuda of the present day will find innumer-
able keys not without political value and signifi-
cance, to the interpretation of its many marked
characteristics in these Records."
As regards Nova Scotia this work has been effici- -
ently done by the Record Commission under Thos.
B. Akins, D. C. L. On the 30th April, 1857, the
late Hon. Joseph Howe proposed in the House of
Assembly of Nova Scotia:
That His Excellency the Governor be respect-
fully requested to cause the ancient records and
documents illustrative of the history and progress
of society in this Province to be examined, preserv-
ed and arranged, either for reference or publica-
tion, as the legislature may hereafter determine,
and that this house will provide for the. same."-
Copies to complete fyles were had from the State
Paper Office, London, and from the Archives of
Quebec, originally obtained from those of Paris.
In 1864 upwards of 200 volumes of manuscripts
had been selected, arranged, catalogued and bound,
and in 1865 the Assembly ordered a selection to be
published contained in a single octavo volume of
moderate size, which was issued in 1869. The se-
lection-there are still unpublished many docu-
ments of value and interest-contains Papers
Relating to the Arcadian French 1714-1755 ; their
Forcible Removal from Nova Scotia 1755-1768;
the French Encroachments in Nova Scotia 1749-
1754; and the War in North America 1754-1761.
The First Settlement of Halifax 1749-1756; the
First Establishment of a Representative Assembly
in Nova Scotia 1755-1761."
The volume is embellished with a few illustra-
tions-viz.:
The King's Castle from Southampton Fort.
The Remains of Charles Fort off the entrance to
the Castle Harbour.
Vignette of the North Rock.
Portrait of the late Jacob Minors, of St. David's
Island, pilot, a native Bermudian of strongly
marked Indian features, reputed to be of In-
dian descent, and probably descended from
one of the Pequod captives. He died 1875,
aged 84.
The Sacramental Cup of Devonshire Parish.
Facsimile of MS.
A Bermuda Boat in 1670.
The Silver Oar of Bermuda-the emblem of Ad-
miralty Jurisdiction provided by Governor
Bennett 1701.
A New Piece of Hog Money, value 2d.
Two Maps--The Bermudas,
As drawn by Richard Norwood 1663 ;
As surveyed by the Admiralty 1874.
In the Appendix, among other interesting mat-
ter, is Norwood's Book bf Survey of 1662-3, now
for the first time printed, a register of survey
and title whence present tenures are derived. We
find, e.g., "Norwood," the residence of Samuel
Saltus, exactly described "Pembroke Tribe No. 26,"
-the property having been acquired by marriage
and continuously held in the Saltus family.
"Mr. Richard Norwood of Pembroke tribe (for-
merly Mr. Richard Caswell) his dwelling house
and two sha. of land; abutting at ye south end
uppon Crow Lane and at ye north end uppon ye
North Side sea. Lying between ye lands of John
Squire to ye eastward and ye lands formerly Sr.
Lemile Craufields, and Sr. Tho. Smith to ye West-
ward cont 49 acres."
The original tracts have been largely sub-
divided, still Norwood's lines to a large extent
are preserved boundaries. We will take the head
of Hamilton Harbour where the three Tribes of
Pembroke, Devonshire and Pagets meet. Pembroke
Hall with its recent addition Westward almost
marks the water line on Hamilton Harbour of 4
shares numbered originally held by Mr. George


Smith or Mr. Wheatly described as "abutting at
Ce south end uppon ye arme of ye sea called Crow
ane neare ye bottom, and at ye north end uppon
ye north sea." The Lane School is on the South
water front of the Gleabe Land. Tucker's Store
with cottage opposite is on land described in Dev-
onshire.
27.-Mr. John Vaughan of Georges Town
late Mr. Trimingham and formerly Mr. William
almer or Mrs. Anthony). A tenement and one
share of land in the occupation of Tho Hutchings
Abutting at ye south end uppon Pagets tribe, and
in part uppon the bottom of Crow Lane, and at ye
north end uppon Thomas Clarke's, lying between
ye lands of Mr. Joseph Wiseman, to ye eastwards
and Pembroke tribe to ye westward cont 24 acres
2 rods." The new residence of the Hon. Jas. H.
Trimingham, is contained within boundaries partly
following out description Nos. 7-10 Paget's Tribe.
" Esquire Hugh Bascoyne (formerly the Lord Pag-
gets) five shares of land. These five shares
ly together, abutting at ye south end uppon ye south
side sea, and at ye north end uppon ye bottom of


Crow Lane and a parcel of common ground."
Norwood accounts for the overplus between South-
ampton and Sandys tribe by stating that, having
finished Pembroke, he was ordered to Somerset to
admit of corn being planted there to escape the
ravages of the rats, and afterwards returned and
surveyed Pagets and Warwick, and last of all
Southampton. This I thought good to express
because some have thought it was laid here for
other ends and causes." The traditional belief that
this was a job in favor of Capt. D. Tucker is pro.
nounced a calumny.
Richard Norwood, the most eminent and pro-
bably the last surviving of the original settlers in
the Somers' Islands, having been sent out to join
Governor Moore as a surveyor in 1614 or 1615, died
at the age of 84 in October 1675, and his will is
subjoined in full."
A few extracts from the Bermuda Company's an-
swers to a Circular letter, dated April 10th, 1676,
to the Trade and Foreign Plantations Committee
of the Privy Council will prove of interest.
The said Islands were about the year 1609 dis-
covered by the English, being then uninhabited and
not under the power of any Forreign Prince,, And
ye said Company having purchased the soil of the
said Island, were incorporated in the 13th year of
King James by the name of the Governor and
Company of the Citty of London for plantation of
the Sommer Islands and thereby had the sole Gov-
ernment committed to them, with a power to make
ordain and establish Laws, Forms and Ceremonies
of Government and Magistracy as neer as might
bee to the Laws of England.
The said Islands are governed subordinately by
a Deputy Governor and his Council. The Deputy
Governor hath his Commission from the Company
here and his Council are eight persons of fidelity
and cheise note in the Island, one chosen for each
of the eight tribes, and there is also a Sherif and a
Secretary for the Island, who are also of the Coun-
cil. The said Deputy, Governor, Council, Sherif,
and Secretary are chosen yearly by the Company
here in one of their four Quarter Courts.
"By a Law of the Company a General Assembly
is constituted consisting of the Governor and Coun-
cil and forty persons chosen by the respective
Tribes, who have authority given them to draw up
and present laws and Orders to the Company, which
laws and orders, if confirmed by the Company here,
in one of their Quarter Courts, are binding and not
otherwise.
"Two General Sessions or Assizes are held every
year by the Governor and Council to hear and de-
termine all causes both Criminal and Civil, all which
causes are tryed by Juries.
There is in the Island six Companys
of foot in trained Bands, in number about One
Thousand men, armed with musket and sword .
constantly mustered at the least four times every
year and oftner in time of warr. One Castle called
the King's Castle, and one effort called Southampton
Fort situated in the entrance into ye Castle Har-
bour. Two efforts, vizt., Padget's and Smith's Forts
at the entrance into ye Town Harbour, all furnish-
ed with provisions annually at the charge of the
Company, wch efforts are attended and served by
the Publick Tenants. The Island is naturally
fortifyed, and with great difficulty to bee took.
. The 8 Tribes, subdivided into 50 shares, 25
acres to each share, besides the public lands appro-
priated to the maintenance of the Government, all
settled and inhabited. The only Town is St. Geor-
ge's where the Deputy Governor constantly resides,
the places of Trade are in the Storehouses of the In-
habitants. The houses are generally built of cedar,
none exceeding two floors and garrets. .
The commodity of the Island is Tobacco of which
there is annually exported and consumed in the
Island about ye value of five thousands pounds
sterling. The commoditys imported are
all sorts of wearing apparrell and household goods
and some liquors. The export to other Neighbour
Islands are Beef, Pork, Fish, Wax, Honey, Palmetto
Hats, Baskets and Woodden ware. All about the
value of Six Thousand Pounds per annum. .
About four Merchants English, noe Strangers,
about four hundred Planters, about eight thousand
Men, Women, Children and Slaves, about a thous-
and White people able to bear arms ...
The Estates of the Merchants and Planters may be
about a hundred Pounds each; and the wealth of
ye whole Island about twenty thousand Pounds.
. There is about thirteen or fourteen
ships or vessels belonging to the Island, the biggest
whereof is about fourscore tons, the least about
twenty tons. . Noe Duties charged and
payable upon any goods exported or imported
either of the growth of the Island or otherwise, ex-
cept a Duty of four pence a gallon on Rum, noe
part of which hath as yet been levied; but when
any is it's to be applied to public uses in the coun-
try. And also a duty of about a penny in the
pound upon Tobacco brought into England and
paid there by the several Merchants that import the
same, and employed for the public use of the Com-
pany and Country. The Presbyterian Persua-
sion is most prevalent, they being reckoned to be
two Thirds of the whole, the other being Indepen -
dents, Anabaptists and Quakers. (To this Lefroy
adds a note: 'The Established or Episcopal Church
is here left entirely out of the account, although
every minister appointed for years past appears to
have been in Episcopal orders. The explanation is
to be found in a strong non-conformist element in
the Company in London itself, and in the total ab-
sence of church discipline in the Colony, which
ended by obliterating the distinctions between
Episcopalian and Presbyterian Protestantism.')-


There are nine Churches and five Ministers, which
are sufficient to supply all the Churches. Each of
them have forty Pounds per ann. allowed by the
Company, a house and two Shares of Land. There
are some poor indigent persons, but no beggars in
the Island." (To be continued.)

G RIt T progress has been nmide within a few
years in the art of Preserving Fruits, Ve-

quence the consumption has largely increased.
As yet, however, canned goods are not generally
thought to be fresh," and some brands nre not,
perhaps, entitled to be so considered. Those
packed by us, however, are I hermetically Sealed
at the sources of supply, when they are in the
best possible condition, by a process which pre-
serves the much-to-be-desired fresh, natural
flavors; and they are really in better condition,
fresher, more palatable and wholesome than
many so-called fresh" articles which are ex-
posed for sale during considerable periods of
time in city markets. All goods bearing our

CAUTION To BATHERs.-On Satarday morning,
the 12th inst., two little boys were playing about
the rocks on Mr. Mackey's Bay, Eli's Harbour,
Somerset, when they were alarmed by a large shark
coming quite close in to where they were, and
eyeing them as if longing to secure a nice little
relish for dinner." Mr. Charles Burch, who lives


close by, was attracted by a cry from one of the
boys, and hurrying to the spot found out the cause
of alarm : he hastened back and obtained a
striking staff ; he first struck the shark on the head,
but the iron did not enter the skull ; the fish how-
ever seemed partly stunned and turned on its back.
Mr. Burch then, very courageously followed it into
the water and succeeded in striking it in the throat
and bringing it to land. It proved on measurement
to be 11 feet 6 inches in length. The bay is shallow
and frequently used as a bathing place by the boys
of the neighbourhood, so that it may be considered
vt fortunate that Mr. Burch has succeeded in
destroying this dangerous visitor before it did any
mischief.

[For the Royal Gazette,]
"Durum telum necessitas"-Necessity is a hard
weapon and it is surprising to what lengths a Bri-
ton will go to procure amusement (which is really
a necessity to him) and what a power of intellect
can be brought to the surface in such a pursuit as
witness, the performance given in the Royal En-
gineer's Theatre at Prospect, on Thursday, Friday,
Saturday and Monday the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th of
July, by the Amateurs of the "Princess of Wales'
Own Regiment, when was produced a remarkably
lengthy bill of fare," viz.: three farces and a 2
act drama.
The performance commenced on Thursday, with
the laughable farce of Larkin's Love Letters,"
which, to judge from the acting, must have been ar-
ranged expressly for this Company; the part of
Littleton Lynx, (Corpl. Fitzgibbon) did not, it was
evident, require the services of the prompter, (in
fact during the whole 4 nights the office of promp-
ter seemed to be a sinecure,) as he evidently ap-
peared at home, and not only meant it, but did
it," and we hope to have the pleasure of once more
meeting this N. C. Officer in his element. It needs
only to be said that the other characters in this
truly amusing farce were excellent to be believed,
when we state that they were all sustained by
amateurs performing in the Drama of The Last
Kiss or the Soldier's Grave," which for the second
time was most appropriately selected for perfor-
mance in Bermuda; on this occasion to raise funds
in aid of the Widows and Orphans caused by the
Zulu War. In Duchesne, (C. Moss) we recognized
an amateur who is evidently thoroughly well used
to the boards, and whose acting was simply perfect;
in fact it has seldom been our lot to witness a scene
so like reality as the anguish of Duchesne, the more
than friendship of Captain Lonsdale, and the plead-
ings of Pauline in the Hotel De Ville." Lonsdale,
(G. Hedingham) had certainly the air and look of
a thorough soldier, (why should he not when he is
the trainer of the future generation of officers and
men alike.)
Blarney O'Bogg, (J. Doyle) is without doubt, the
thorough ideal Irishman, and evidently concerned
I for the inner man, of which concern his wife, Mrs.
Nosebag, (Miss Smith) does not approve. I was in-
formed, but can scarcely, even now, credit, that
this young lady plays an instrument in the Band
i of thle P. W. O's," at all events if she had an ob-
ject to gain in ordinary life by personating the
gentler sex, I should fancy she would be sure of
success.
There is one character, Pettitoes, (F. Dillon)
whom I must not forget to mention, and who has
certainly mistaken his vocation in entering the
army ; but I am told we are to lose this valuable
aid to any amateur club, as he is about to leave
the army and Bermuda. I am very sorry that I
shall not again have the pleasure of a good hearty
laugh at his most excellent acting.
Last, but far from least, on this roll of excellent
and talented performers, comes the Heroine Pauline,
(Mrs. Hewlett) whose acting has improved to such
a degree-since she played the same character in
St. George's twelve months back-that I was equal-
ly as much surprised as pleased, her effective ren-
, during of a most trying part, her appearance, her
self-possession and command, drew thunders of ap-
1 plause from the Upper ten" and Gods" alike,
and I think it was richly deserved, as Mrs. Hew-
lett, promises to become a star in the profession, if
she continues.
The performance concluded with The Race for
a Widow," a farce of which I can scarcely write
without laughing, but I presume I may say but
very little of it, as it was evidently so well appre.
ciated, that no one there appeared to miss a word
of it, but the ludicrous predicaments of Popjoy. (F.
Kelly) and DeCremorne, (C. Moss) caused me to
have, what is commonly termed a stitch" in my
side, for hours afterwards.
On Friday and Monday night the performance
concluded with the capital and exciting farce of
"A Thumping Legacy" which was most admirably
executed by the Officers of the Regiment, kindly
assisted by Miss Sinclair.
toL..o Geronimo, (Lieut. Handcock,) sends a let-
ter to his Nephew, Jerry Ominous, (Qr. Master
Hodingham) purporting to come from a lawyer in-
forming Jerry of his (Filippo's) death, for the pur-
pose of bringing Jerry from St. Mary Axe" to
Corsica, to declare the family feud between the
Leoni's and the Geronimo's; the cowardly fear and
indignation of Jerry on discovering his uncle's plan,
were so real, that one could almost fancy oneself
witnessing the real thing itself. We hardly thought'
from our knowledge of this gentleman in private
life, that he could be such an acquisition to a club,
and become the life and soul of a piece in which
every one was good. Bambogetti too, looked any-
thing rather than like the Mro Maloney we are ac-
quainted with. I am really beginning to think the
"P.. W. O's" are all Amateurs, and good ones too.
Captain Leoni, (Lieut. Phayre) was excellent, as
was also the Brigadier, (Lieut. Cotesworth) while
Rosetti, (Miss Sinclair) was simply superb, and I am
sorry that mine is not the pen of a Genius" that
I might write all that she deserves for her splen-
did delineation of such a character.

Information from reliable authority has reached
the 97th Regt. now at Halifax that it is to proceed
to Bermuda to relieve the 46th Regiment, which is
to go to Halifax in its place. The 97th were sta-
tioned here less than three years ago and have many
friends here.

We have been handed the following complimen-
tary letter for publication, and we do so with plea-
sure :-

THE SYNOD.
By the last "Royal Gazette" it appears that at a
meeting of the Synod the Bishop of Newfoundlandland
has been invited to become Bishop of the Church of
England in Bermuda, and it is to be hoped from all
we hear of his character that he will accept; but
should he decline, then before making an election
in any other quarter will it not be well for us to
pause, and reflect upon the propriety of a resident
Bishop in the Colony ? The salary proposed to be
offered to Bishop Jones is 200 per annum, for visi-
ations every two years if convenient, otherwise
every three years, at his option. It appears to be
small, but when we reflect that for each visitation
we are to pay 400 or possibly 600, whilst to him
the amount will be small per annum, yet to the
Colony it will be large, and under the voluntary
system that we must assume after 1882, it may
prove burdensome; and under such a possibility,
ought we not to bring our minds to reflect upon
whether or not that 200 may not be made more
useful by having a resident Bishop ? I believe it
has become evident to both the Eastern and West-
ern world of late, that there are many advantages
to be derived from reducing the size and multiply-
ing Dioceses; and instead of appointing Bishops
on the decline of life for the sake of their experi-
ence and maturity, to appoint younger men who
are able and willing to be more energetic in build-
ing up and watching over the Church; and we may
see the advantage in other Churches of having their
leaders more frequently amongst them to oversee,
to counsel and to work much with them, and
amongst them, as well as for them. Now let us
apply this idea to ourselves, to our Church and
Country. I know there are various opinions as to
having a resident Bishop here, and as regards our
Parishes, there are preferences that may not like to
yield, and sacrifices that individuals may not like
to make, but I think we ought all to rise above
these, and take a larger view of what will be for
the benefit of the Church as a whole.
Let us take a view of our Church population in
each Parish, and the territory to be served, and the
funds required, and see if we cannot make a more
suitable and equitable distribution of them than we
have at present, and whatever may be best'for the
whole, will doubtless be best for each Parish.
For instance there is Sandys with the largest
number of Church of England population in any
Parish according to the last Census, say 1689.
Ought not that to be set off by itself, and considering
the territory it covers, ought there not to be two ser-
vices of a Sunday to accommodate all classes?
Then next in size and number comes Pembroke Pa-
rish with 1679. Ought not that to be set off by itself
Sand the two Churches of Trinity and St. John's be
united under one head, for there can never be any
peace or harmony so long as they are antagonistic
as at present ? The status of Trinity must of neces-
sity be altered before long to admit of this. And
if we are to pay 200 per annum to a Bishop, why
may we not have his services here all the time, in-
stead of visitations at intervals of two or three
years ? Some reply that there is nothing much for
a Bishop to do here. Well suppose we add to his
income and give him enough to do to occupy his
whole time, and if we get a young working Bishop
he will like the position all the better. If Pem-
broke be set off by itself, why may we not have a
resident Bishop upon a salary of 500* per annum
and give him charge of the two Churches with
Trinity for his Cathedral, and with that salary let
him supply himself with such assistance as he may
require? The present Bishop of Newfoundland
gets 500 per annum, and the duties in that coun-
try must be much more arduous than they would be
here including the services of Trinity, and doubt-
less some suitable and desirable man could be found
in England, or in the Provinces, who would prefer
such a climate as Bermuda at 400 per annum,
though possibly for the services of a resident Bis-
hop, this might be supplemented in some way ac-
cording to the resources of the Church. A resi-
dent Bishop holding constant intercourse with the
people could do much to counsel and stimulate them
to their duties, and.draw forth means for the sup-
port of the Church; and also do much to encourage
the Clergy and hold up their hands, and comfort
them. Let us all ponder over these thoughts whilst
we await the reply of Bishop Jones. As to the re-
arrangement of the Parishes in the event of the
division referred to, let the two remaining Parishes
be connected with their other contiguous Parishes,
viz., Southampton with Warwick, which would form
a population according to the census, of 1267, and
Devonshire with Pagetforminga population of 1456,
thus making a much more equal division through-
out the country than exists at present, where we
have with Sandys and Southampton united 2376,
under one Rector-and with Pembroke and Devon-
shire united 2289, under one Rector, against 1510
in Smith's and Hamilton Parishes; 1497 in St.
George's; and 1456 in Pagets and Warwick, res-
pectively under one Rector, and each Rector re-
ceiving from the Public Chest precisely the same
allowance of Salary. Is this equitable? These
suggestions will of course have their objectors, but
may it not be well for the Bishop, the Synod and
the Legislature to give them due consideration and
act accordingly as may seem to be best for the
Church at large? It is argued by some that War-
wick and Southampton being the weakest Parishes
should not be united ; but let the stronger Parishes
aid them accordingly out of the general fund, to
the judgment of the Synod, instead of drawing their
aid as at present from their contiguous Parishes of
of Sandy's and Paget. The Officiating Clergyman
at Trinity might be somewhat relieved, with more
usefulness, if the 4 o'clock Service in the Church


was dispensed with, and a School Service at the
same hour be substituted in the School Room, with
a short address to the children and teachers, where
better behaviour of the former could be elicited than
sometimes takes place where they are seated so far
off as not to be seen, and where they cannot hear
sufficiently to keep up, or even arouse their inter-
est in a Sermon from the Pulpit. Moreover it is
not only dispiriting, but very exhausting to a
Clergyman to go through the regular Church Ser-
vice, and preach to empty pews; whilst a School
Service in which the children are interested, and in
which you hear their sweet voices, joining in the
hymns is truly encouraging, and besides it will
enable them the better to appreciate the regular
Services in Church which is most desirable.

Arr.va. of the English Mail of 24th
June.
The Royal Mail Steamer Alpha, Captain Crowell,
with the English Mail of the 24th ultimo, arrived
at St. George's on Friday last.
This Mail was ',oC.u:t out by the Allan Steamer
Ilibernian, which arrived at Halifax via St. John's,
N. F., at 11 o'clock on the evening of the 5th
instant.
We are indebted to Captain Crowell for a file of
Halifax papers of the morning of the day of his
leaving-Monday. 7th instant.

THE ZULU WAR.-CAPE TowN, June 14.-
Colonel Newdigate cleared the country between
Ugotyozi and Upoko rivers without loss.
The official inquiry into the death of the Prince
Imperial has closed. Lieut. Carey will be court
martialed.
CAPE TOWN, June 17 via MADEIRA.-Troops
have commenced to advance from Fort Pearson
to Fort Chelmsford, and a junction has been almost
effected with Col. Wood, who is also advancing.
The rumor that an armistice had been agreed to
is not confirmed.

THE AGRICULTURAL DEPRESSION.
LONDON, July 3.-In the debate in the Commons
on the Agricultural depression, Mr. Chaplin said he
regarded Free Trade as a question definitely settled,
but he could not shut his eyes to the failure of the
many predictions of the advocates of Free Trade.
He did not propose a remedy now but only asked
for enquiry. He printed out the future fate of
British Agriculture, when dependent upon the cost
of production in America. If the cost of importa-
tion fell below the cost of production at home, the
ruin of British Agriculture is not far distant.
Liberals such as Brassey, MacDuff and Duff,
blamed the British Land System and Game Laws
for the depression. Their arguments were summed
up in a speech by John Bright, who warned the land
owners that the competition of the United States
would oq on increasing, and the only way of meet-
ing it was to get rid of the stupid and mischievous
legislation of tenure and transfer of land.
Messrs. Mclver and Bentick advocated protec-
tive measures.
The Marquis of Hartington, and the Government
as represented by Viscount Sandon (Conservative),
and Sir Stafford Northcote, declared that no cause
had been shown for such measures, which certainly
would never be sanctioned. Hartington attributed
the depression primarily to the bad season.

LONDON, July 5.-The Commons adopted resolu-
tions appointing a commission to investigate the
causes of the agricultural depression. It was as-
serted by a number of members that American
competition was the cause.
In the House of Lords last night the Government
stated no later information had been received from
Zululand than June 6th, which has already been
given to the public.
LONDON, July 4.--Hannah Dobbs, accused of
murdering Matilda Hecker, her elderly lodger, and
hiding the corpse in the coal seller, where it lay
for a year and a half, has been acquitted.
THE PRINCE IMPERIAL'S FUNERAL.-PARIS, July
6.-General Castleman has asked to be placed on
the retired list, in order to be able to attend the fu-
neral of the Prince Imperial.
The London Observer's correspondent understand
that Prince Jerome Napoleon and his two sons will
attend the funeral.
A despatch from Paris says Princess Clotilde,
wife of Jerome Bonaparte, will be present with her
husband at the funeral of the Prince Imperial.
Gen. Fleury goes on the retiredd list to attend the
funeral of the Prince Imperial.
The British Troopship Orontes arrived at Madei-
ra to-day with the remains of the Prince Imperial.
BEREIN, July 5.-It is announced that Old Ca.
tbolics henceforth will be treated in Germany as
part of the Catholic Church.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 5.-It has been ascertain-
ed that before the recent execution at Kieff, 400
Nihilists arrived there from different parts, some
even from Western Europe, to attempt their rescue,
but were frustrated by the Police, who also seized
a quantity of dynamite intended to be used in the
attempt.
LONDON, July 4 -A despatch from Rangoon re-
presents that the King of Burmah still displays
hostility to the British.
BERLIN, July 5.-A report in the Golos says that
the Chinese are committing all kinds of outrages
in Kulaja, and thousands of fugitives are seeking
protection at the Russian forts.
CONSTANTINOPLE, July 5.-A number of placards,
threatening the lives of the Sultan and his ministers
have again been seized by the police.

THE DEAD PRINCE.-Breaing the News.-" The
Empress was alarmed and could not understand it;
she sent for the Duke de Bassano and asked him
what it all meant, what could this horrible news
from Zululand be ? Alas,' says the Standard,' the
Duke only knew too well, and it required all his
firmness of mind to cloak his own sadness from his
august mistress.' 'It must concern us,' said the
Empress, 'for he offers us his condolence.' The
Duke spoke of some new disasters to the troops and


did his best to postpone the blow ; but the Empress
with the intuition of motherly fondness, saw through
the thin disguise and cried that something must
have happened to her son and that she would go
out to the Cape to him herself! Where was a
mother's place but beside her child? The Duke
faltered and made some excuses to escape before his
emotion betrayed him. Lord Sydney had arrived
below in the meantime, and had confirmed the pain-
ful tidings. After a brief interval the Empress
again summoned the Duke; she affected to appear
composed and insisted that he should tell her all,
that she was prepared for the worst, and' that, if
necessary, she would rejoin the Prince Imperial by
the next steamer. Helas! Madame,' said the Duke
'c'est trop tard.' Too late. Hardly had the fatal words
reached her when the poor lady sobbed out, Mon
fils! mon pauvrefils!' The heartrending scene that
followed is of too sacred a nature to be dwelt upon.
As soon as Her Imperial Majesty had got over the
the first awful paroxysm of anguish she was assist-
ed to the oratory by Mme. Le Breton and knelt in
prayer until the arrival of the Abb6 Goddard, her
domestic chaplain and her own and her son's faith-
ful friend and counsellor."
Irish Editorials.-"June may be reckoned the
moon accurst' of the Napoleans," says the Irish
Times. On a June day sixty-four years ago, the
family were hurled from the heights of empire to suf-
fer a long eclipse. On a June day, only three
weeks ago, the heir of the dynasty met his death at
the hands of savages in a quarrel not his own. It
is doubtful if the catastrophe of Mount St. Jean
was a heavier misfortune for the Bonapartists than
the': .:.. .iy at Hyoloyozi River.
Says the Freeman's Journal:-" We find scarcely
a parallel in all history for so sad a close ot a great
dynasty. The youth butchered by savages in an
obscure affray bore the greatest name which has
been borne by man since the d -'r: of the Caesars
perished. In the short course of a single century
we have seen the sun of the Napoleonidae rise,
blaze with noontide brilliance and go down. The
heir of the two Emperors, the grand-nephew of the
mighty captain who laid the world at his feet and


'bore the tricolor through Europe uncontrolled,' th
son of the victor of Moento and Solferino, should
have fallen in some great world battle decisive
the fate of empires and the destinies of nations.
The News in Paris.-Says the Paris correspond
ent of the Standard:-" Among the non-politica
public the general feeling may be expressed by th
words I have heard a hundred times if 1 have hear
them once :-' C'est bien cruel pour sa mere.' Th
Ordre, M. Roaher's organ, comments briefly, ap
parently through inability to draw inspiration fro
him before going to press. It says:-
"The Prince Imperial is dead. We have bu
one duty and one call-piously to kneel before his
tomb and to mingle our tears with those shed on the
young hero whom we mourn by his two so cruelly
visited mothers, the Empress and France."

THE DEATH CF THE PRINCE IMPERIAL.
That the hopes of Bonapartism are extinguished
by this sad event, and that Zulu assegais have de-
stroyed a French political party as well as'a French
Prince it is perhaps too much to say. But it is quite
certain that the death of the Prince will profoundly
affect the cause of which he was the visible head.
It may be said, indeed, that Bonapartists will find
it easier to survive the loss than Bonapartism-un-
derstood, at least, in the best and most respectable
sense of the word. As for Bonapartism militant,
as for the cause which is represented and discredit.
ed by M. Paul de Cassagnac, we need not trouble
ourselves about the effect which the event will pro.
duce in that quarter. Even there, of course, it will
Le felt as a heavy blow; but it will be strange in-
%eed if Bonapartists of this type should not sue-
ceed in agreeing upon some new official representa-
tive of a cause in which their own personal interests
are so deeply engaged. But as for the Bonapart-
ists whose "political convictions" have Fome title
to be called by that name-as for that party, not by
any means confined to France, who believe that in
a reformed and purified Imperial regime lies the
best chance of establishing strong and settled po-
litical institutions in their country, the death of
the young Prince is, we will not say an irreparable
loss, but a loss which there are af present no visible
means of repairing, The cousin of the late Emper-
or is the next in succession to the Imperial throne ;
and, sharply as that Prince's claim may divide the
house of Imperialism against itself, we can more
easily conceive its acceptance by Bonapartists of
the De Cassagnac type than by that steadier and
more scrupulous section of the party to which we
have been referring. For this section have all
along apprehended the truth that if the Empire is
to be re-established upon a durable basis it must be
an Empire of a very different character from the
last. It must have what its predecessor never had,
even for a single hour-the benefit of prudent, in-
corrupt, and patriotic guidance. It must be re-
presented by a Sovereign and directed by Minis-
ters who are not only clever but wise, not only bril.
liant but honest; of men who will not "job" the
system for their own personal advantage, but order
and control it with a single eye to the welfare and
good government of the country. This experiment
as we have said, has never yet been tried, and with
the death of Prince Louis Napoleon there disap.
pears the best chance of being able to try it. The
natural qualities of the young Prince, and, above
all, the training of his boyhood and the lesson of
his earlier years, afforded good hope that in him the
Bonapartists of the better type might find the reali-
zation of their hopes. He is dead; and it would
be affectation to pretend that they see any promise
of compensation in the person of his father's cousin.
The brilliant abilities of Prince Napoleon-abilities
which are most admired by those who know him
best-have altogether failed to render him accept-
able to any portion of the French people. His
personal reputation is much damaged, and his po-
litical character is, to say the least of it, dxceeding-
ly doubtful. Distasteful as he is on the first ground,
he is on the second ground an almost impossible
leader for the serious and patriotic members of the
party. And it is because no other choice is offered
to them that the event which saddens Europe to-
day must strike so heavy a blowto their worthiest

H. P. Peer, who was to jump from the suspension

SAN FRANOCISCO, July 5.-About midnight Pro.
fessor Colegrove who, with Miss Allison, ascended
from here yesterday afternoon, returned to this city
and reported that the balloon came down in the
Bay, on account of a rent in the bag, and was drag-
ged through the water over two miles in the same
number of minutes, struck an old wharf, threw out
both the occupants, who were somewhat cut and
bruised, but not seriously injured, and sailed off
eastward, coming down at Lathrop, forty miles
away. Colegrove and Miss Allison stuck in the
marsh, through which they waded and gained firm
ground and made their way to Allamanda.

THE APPROACHING CRUISE OF THE PRINCE OF
WALES'S SONs.-Our Plymouth correspondent tele-
graphs :-The First Lord of the Admiralty Sir Cooper
Key (the hydrographer) and Lord Charles Scott have
met and decided the course to be taken by the Bac-
chante in her forthcoming cruise, and the officers to
be appointed to her. The young Princes will visit in
the course of their voyage most of our colonial pos-
sessions.

The Princess Louise had quite a narrow escape
from drowning while fishing on Thursd'ay. The
canoe, which contained the Princess and the Duke
of Argyll, approached a strong eddy at the foot of
a jam of logs, one of which projected some distance
belo the other. The Indian in the bow was in-
tently watching the lines being cast for a rise and
forgot to keep a look out ahead. As the canoe
swung into the eddy the projecting log struck the
Indian on the side of the breast with such force as
to throw him down and stop the headway of the
canoe. As the Indian fell his feet caught in a
trout rod lying under the cross-bars of the canoe,
snapping the rod in a dozen pieces. The canoe
rolled from side to side. As it nearly went over
the Indian threw himself into the water clear of the
c ;'", which was then controlled by the Indian in
the stern. The Princess and her father-in law
maintained their presence of mind throughout and
their fortunate escape is as much due to that fact
as to the prompt jump of the Indian. The slightest
panic and the party would have been precipitated
into the swift running water, there about 12 feet
deep.-Canadian Paper.

"A tragic occurrence took place it Limerick last
night. Lieut. Eardley Maitland, a yc ung officer of
the 87th Royal Fusiliers, who, with other officers of
his regiment were dining with the Royal Limerick
County Fusiliers, fell through an open window in
the mess-room into the street, and sustained injur-
ies, from which he died soon afterwards."
Lieut Maitland was known to many in Bermuda,

87th were quartered here some three years since.

We (Morning Post) regret to state that Gen. Sir

DIFFERENT FORMS OF COLOUR DEFECT
IN THE VISION.
First, total color blindness, a condition in which
there is entire absence of the perception of colors,
everything looking like a photagraph-black and
white. This grade is most acquired from some dis-
ease of the brain or optic nerve. It is very, very
rarely congenital. Only two or three such cases are
recorded.
The second grade, complete color blindness, in
which the eye fails in the perception of one of the
fundamental colors, red green or violet (blue).
Many came under this grade which might have been
improved by education, but one born color blind will
always remain so, no matter how assiduously he at-
tempts to educate his eye to distinguish by the in- 1
tensity of the color.
The third grade, incomplete color blindness, is
more frequent, and consists in a reduced sensitive-
ness in'recognizing one of the fundamental colors,
particularly the shades of a color when the funda-
mental color may be perceived. The impression or
perception is not so strong and clear in certain
shades as in others. This grade of the defect can be
very greatly remedied by education, and care should
be taken to teach children all the colors and shades
thereof.
The doctor was pleased to learn that teaching the
distinguishment of colors has been introduced in the
public schools, beginning in the lowest sections of
the primary schools with the primary colors-red,
yellow, blue-and advancing slowly and regularly
with the colors and shades in the higher sections.

By the selection of Admiral Sir Cooper Key,
K.C.B., for the Post of Principal Naval Aide-de-
Camp to the Queen, vacated by Sir Henry Keppel,
on being placed on the List of Retired Admirals of
the Fleet, the honourable office is disposed of until
1886, as Sir Cooper Key will not retire by age until
that date. It is not surprising that there are some
who think that it is undesirable to give such a
prized appointment to an officer who will hold it
for so long a time, for, apart from i be pecuniary
advantage attached to the post, there is not an Ad-
miral who would not be proud to appear in the
Gazette as having been selected by Her Majesty for
appointment as her First and Principal Naval
Aide-de-Camp.-Army and Navy Gazette, June 21.
Mrs. Deeble, the lady superintendent of nurses
of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Netley, with six of
the sisters sailed on Thursday for Natal, in the
Union Company's Ship Pretoria. We can with all
assurance say that these ladies will carry with them
to the scene of their noble labours the hearty good
wishes, not only of the two Services, who will ben-
efit by their presence at the hospital at Durban, but
of the whole Empire, from the Queen to the peasant.
-Army and Navy Gazette, June 21.
A DELICATE OPERATION.-Mrs. Lucy Webster,
wife of Mr. Nathaniel Webster, of this city, who
has been very ill for the last three years, with con-
sumption of the blood, being so low that hopes of
her recovery had been given up, has been benefited
by the experiment of transfusing blood into her
veins. Some four weeks since a Boston physician
was called, and the operation of transferring a quar-
ter of a pound of blood from a healthy young lady
into the arm of Mrs. Webster, was successfully per-
formed, and she received decided benefit therefrom.
On Tuesday morning a similar operation was per-
formed, and a pound of blood was successfully
transferred, and a marked improvement is the re-
sult. It is hoped that a cure may be affected, and
the case is watched with intense interest by the
many friends of the patient in this city and else-
where.-Cape Ann WReekly Advertiser, June 27.
An old bachelor being ill, his sister presented him
with a cup of medicine. What is it ?" he asked.
She answered, "'It is elixer asthmatic, it. is very
aromatic, and will make you feel ecstatic." Nancy"
he replied, with a smile, you are very sister-matic."
