The following Messages from His Excellency the
Governor were delivered by His Excellency's Pri-
vate Secretary :-
R. M. LAFFAN,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to present to the
Honorable the Legislative Council a list of charges
made against this Colony by the Crown Agents in
England- amounting to 89 16/6-namely 82
18/9 for freight and assurance and commission and
interest on cash advances connected with the pur-
chase and dispatch to this Colony of the Light
House Apparatus and the Iron Girders for the new
Light House on St. David's Island, and 6 17/9
for sundry small expenses incurred by the Crown
Agents for packing cases, freight and assurance of
Custom House Forms and Stationery and books
from the Meteorological Office, and the Crown -
Agents Commission thereon.
For these expenses no Legislative provision has
been made, and the Governor requests therefore
that early provision may be made for their payment
as the Crown Agents charge interest on the amounts
so long as they remain unpaid.

Twelve sets of telephones have been sent out to
Sir Garnet Wolesley for use at the seat of war in
South Africa. The great advantage of the telephone
over the telegraph is that the General can carry on
confidential talk with the officer at the district
station, or a soldier can creep out towards the
enemy's lines and whisper back the information as to
position. A fine wire-the thinner the better-is all
that is needed. This the soldier carries on a reel
upon his back, a mile weighing only a few pounds.
This will be the first time the telephone has been
used as an instrument of warfare.

been on the reefs off Cape San Antonia, West end
of Cuba, where she lay three days, and was finally
compelled to throw overboard a portion of cargo
before she could be gotten off. The Captain went
on shore there with the hope of obtaining assistance
in boats, and men to extricate his vessel from her
perilous position, and also to lighter and save, his
cargo, but could not succeed in either. An exam-
ination of the vessel's bottom has been made by a
Diver, and found to be in very bad condition. It
will be necessary to discharge cargo, and for the
vessel to go on the marine slip for repairs.
Fortunately the weather has been very mild on
the passage to this, had it been otherwise, there is
every probability the vessel would have foundered.

YELLOW FEVER AT MEMPHIS-GREAT
EXCITEMENT AND EXODUS OF CITI-
Memphis is again visited by yellow fever. A
death from this disease occurred there on the 9th.
The deceased, an Irishman named Frank Mulbran-
don, a shoemaker, an old resident of the city, was
taken sick and died on the 9th. His attending
physician, fearing the excitement such an announce-
ment would cause in the city, before he made the fact
known called in four other physicians, who, after a
post-mortem examination, all concurred that the
deceased had died from a well-developed case of
yellow fever. Judge Ray of the Criminal Court of
Shelley County, and his son were the next cases.
Judge Ray died on the 12th, and it was thought
not possible for the son to survive. The inhabit-
ants were flying:in all directions and most of the
neighboring places have quarantined all freight
and passenger trains arriving from Memphis. At
Brownsville the people threatened to destroy the
bridges and property of the Louisville and Nash-
ville Railroad Company as the most effectual pre-
ventive against yellow fever being brought to
them. Six cases of fever occurred at Memphis on
the 12th-7-40 p.m. Three deaths. This is tele-
graphed by direction of Surgeon General Hamilton.
Upward of 10,000 persons left the city in five
days. Even the Doctors are leaving. It is said
that Memphis has never been disaffected since the
visitation of that dreadful disease last season.
That the "houses, stables, sheds, hotels, churches,
cellars, shanties and places in which the people were
tended last year, and in which they died, are still
full of the poisonous germs of the disease given
INTENSE HEAT AT CHARLESTON, S.C.-On the 12th
instant, the Thermometer at Charleston at 2 p.m.
stood at 111 degrees; the most intense heat that
has ever been experienced in that city. Over a hun-
dred cases of sunstroke-16 of which had proved
fatal. The heated spell began on the 8th and
lasted till a severe thunderstorm commenced on
the evening of the 12th; the thermometer on the
13th stood at 77.
OPEN TO THE COMMERCE OF THE WORLD."-The
maximum depth of thirty feet-after four years
labour-having been secured, through the jetties-
the Mississippi is therefore "open to the commerce
of the world," so says a despatch from Captain
James E. Eads, dated New Orleans, June 11.
THE 12TH JULY IN CANADA.-There was no trou-
ble in Montreal. There was an Orange procession
at Poict St. Charles, but as the line of march was
confined to the Protestant section of that city there
was no interference.
There was no Orange demonstration in Ottawa
on the 12th. The Secretary of the Orange celebra-
tion Committee state that 5,000 Orangemen will
take part in a procession to be held in that city on
the 23rd July. (to-morrow, Wednesday,) the day
of the Triennial Council Meeting. -
The Orange procession at Toronto was the largest
seen there for years. Messrs. Johnson and Cham-
bers, the Irish delegates, rode in a carriage in the
middle of the procession, being accompanied by
the highest officers in the Order. Lodges were
present from Hamilton, Branford, Brampton and
other places. The usual speech-making took place
in Queen's Park.
The twelfth was celebrated at Moncton and other
places in New Brunswick and passed off most
peaceably. The weather was fine.
THE ZULU WAR.
A despatch dated Cape Town, June 23, says :-
"General Sir Garnet Wolseley, the Supreme Mili-
tary and Civil Commander of Natal and the Trans-
vaal, arrived here to-day and immediately started
for Natal on board a swift steamer. Telegrams re-
ceived at Cape Town state that the British forces
are within twenty-five miles of Cetywayo's kraal.
General Wolseley, therefore, determined to reach
the front without delay." A Cape Town despatch
'of June 24 says:--" In consequence of the defective
state of the transportation service General Wolseley
has summoned a meeting of native chiefs at Maritz-
burg on the 30th of June to devise measures for
transportation by native carriers. General Wolseley
will start for the front on the 1st of July. Zulu
prisoners state that King Cetywayo will allow our
troops to advance near Ullundi and then make an
A despatch from Cape Town, June 24, via Ma-
deira, reports that General Crealock reached Fort
Chelmsford on June 19. A general advance was
made on the 20th, and the Umlalazi River was
bridged on the 21st. Gen. Newdigate has reached
the Upoko River. His advance guard is near Iba-
banango. Colonel Wood was expected to join
General Crealock in a few days. It is rumored that
Cetewayo has withdrawn the regiment which was
watching the First division, in order to defend the
Kraal. The Amatongas are prepared to enter into
an alliance with the British.
An official telegram to the War Office, dated
Utrecht, June 24, says that the border police report
that Zulu head men have been spoken to on the
border. A messenger is with them to collect men
for the King's army. The head men say that the
King will not submit to Lord Chelmsford's terms
Lieutenant Carey's Case.-A despatch to the Daily
Telegraph from Rork's Drift, under date of June 24,
says :-" The decision of the court martial in the
case of Lieutenant Carey, who commanded the ex-
pedition in which the Prince Imperial lost his life,
has been sent to England for confirmation prior to
its publication. Lieutenant Carey will go home
under arrest pending, the Queen's decision upon the
verdict of the court martial."

BARBADOS.-Eight Estates in the Island of
Bardados have been thown into Chancery, in the
course of a few days;-Vaucluse, Canefield, and
Lion Castle, in St. Thomas; Goodland in Christ
Church; Friendship in St. Andrew; and the Lodge
and Jones's in St. Michael; with others reputed
likely to follow suit at no very distant period. So
says the Barbados Agricultural Reporter, July 8.
ANTIGUA.-On the afternoon of the 27th June,

The Dead Prince. IB
ARRIVAL IN ENGLAND. g
TAKING THE BODY TO CHISELHURST.-CEREMONIES (
WOOLWICI, July 11.-The body of the Prince c
Imperial, killed b .a nameless Zulu's savage a
lance," was landed ,-.."y on English soil. Yes- T
S,.,'- the troopship Orontes brought the body to v
Portsmouth. There it was transferred to the steam
yacht Enchantress, which vessel bore the dead body
up the Thames to the Royal Arsenal at Woolwich.
The weather to-day was dull and gloomy, befitting
a funeral. On the pier a long black carpet had
been spread and a large space roped off and reserved
for French mourners, of whom no less than 300 ar-
rived yesterday at London by one train. Of these
there was a large group, all clad in deep mourning,
wearing only small bunches of imperial violets in the r
THE FUNERAL. (
CHISELHURST, July 12.-The last sad scenes con-
nected with the funeral of the Prince Imperial of ,
France are ended. The body rests now in the little
Church of St. Mary at Chiselburst, by the side of (
the dust of Napoleon III. A day of mourning and
of woe in the whole of England. Queen Victoria
mourned with the bereaved Empress, and many
thousands of English women wept to-day though
they were not present. Never has the death of a
prince caused so much grief.
To Chiselhurst.-In my despatch of last night I
described the funeral cort6ge as it, passed over the
hills beyond Woolwich and wended its way toward
Chiselhurst, where the Empress awaited the home-
bringing of her dead boy. How solemn, how im-
pressive was the scene, and what strange thoughts
were brought to the mind, thinking of the grief-
stricken mother, who had seen her boy prince,
around whom clustered so many beautiful hopes,
waiting to receive the body slain so remorselessly
by Zulu assegais! What a temptation to write
once more the stories with which you are by this
time so familiar On Ihe 27th of February last the
young Prince left Southampton for Zululand, anx-
ions to strengthen the ties of friendship with Eng-
land. On the day previous to his departure he was
admitted to an interview with Her Majesty Queen
Victoria, who presented him at parting with a dia-
mond ring in token of her good wishes. The day
before he left Chiselhburst he went to the little
Church of St. Mary and prayed over the tomb of
the father by whose side he was laid so solemnly
The Gathering at Woolwich.-The Troops detailed
to take part in the funeral parade assembled onWool-
wich Common in review order at an early hour this
morning. The column was formed in the following
manner :-A troop of the Fifth Royal Irish Lancers;
the riding establishment of the Royal Artillery; the
mounted band of the Royal Artillery; three bat-
teries (nine-pounders) of the Royal Horse Artillery;
one battery (sixteen-pounders) of the Royal Artil-
lery; service wagons'with thirty rounds of ammuni-
tion per gun; the cadets of the Royal Military
Academy. On arriving at Chiselburst Common they
halted near the north entrance to Canden Place,
forming the guard of honor and firing party. The
first battalion oi the Twenty third Fusiliers also
sent one company under the command of an officer
to form a guard of honor at Chisellurst. This regi-
ment, it may be noted, distinguished itself at
Waterloo against the great Napoleon. Strange,
that the heir of the Bonapartes was escorted to his
last resting by the troops of his great ancestor's
The Nights Vigil.-The poor Empress was a prey
to overwhelming grief on the arrival of the body at
Camden House last night. It was supposed that
she had retired to the seclusion of her boudoir, but,
on the contrary, having eluded her sympathizing
friends, she had silently gone into the room set
apart as the mortuary chamber. No sooner had
the coffin entered the door than a shriek revealed
the presence of the bereaved mother. She was led
away, weeping bitterly. At midnight she again
descended to the room of death and lay prostrate
kissing the plate and moaning the name Louis."
She remained thus for four hours, when she sunk
into a sleep from utter exhaustion. At seven
o'clock this morning she was again found kneeling
at the coffin's side. M. Rouher and others remain.
ed outside fearful of the consequences of such inten-
sity of grief. At nine o'clock, however, theEmpress
was wonderfully firm. She took a last look at the
dead face, and then, with all the piteous passion of
hopeless sorrow, kissed the name on the coffin plate in
token of everlasting Farewell. Friends of her youth
and of the days of her greatness gently led her out
of the room.
The Funeral Day.-Chiselhurst Common, from an
early hour, began to be thronged with visitors, who
came to see how the bitter sorrow of the Bonapar-
tes was expressed. Special trains from London
brought vast crowds of people as early as half-past
seven in the morning, including great numbers of
i French. The Common was crowded with people
from the neighboring villages. Numerous vehi-
cles were drawn up along the route of the funeral,
from the stately gates of Camden Place to the little
Roman Catholic Chapel in an obscure part of the
village, embosomed amid grand old trees, now in
the full glory of their foliage. A body of workmen
from Paris breakfasted at the house, and were per-
mitted to view the body. They then assisted in
draping the gateway near the lodge in large drab
colored hangings bearing the imperial cipher "N"
and crossed palm branches.
Arrival of the Queen.-Shortly after eight o'clock
upward of thirteen hundred members of the Metro-
politan Police were disposed so as to control the
movement of the immense crowd. Several enter-
prising individuals had erected stands in the
neighborhood of the route of the funeral procession
and around the Commons to enable the prospective
occupants to view the cort6ge. An hour afterward
and the troops commenced to arrive from Woolwich.
A few minutes past ten o'clock a special train from
Windsor brought Her Majesty the Queen, accom-
panied by her daughter, the Princess Beatrice.
Leaving the train they entered a close carriage and
proceeded to the house of mourning. The Queen
brought many splendid wreaths of flowers. Short-
ly afterward the Prince and Princess of Wales, the
Duke of Connaught, the Duke of Edinburgh,
Prince Teck, the Duke of Cambridge, the Prince
Christian, the Prince of Saxe-Weimar, all in full
uniform, passed under the draped gateway of Cam-
den House, silently and respectfully greeted by the
multitude. The bells of the Protestant Parish
Church and of the Catholic Church of St. Mary's
began to toll. At eleven o'clock the first minute
gun of the Royal Artillery battery announced that
the procession had started from Camden House.
The funeral Pageant.-With some little delay the
funeral pageant formed in the grounds of Camden
place. The bands of the Lancers and of the Royal
Artillery had their instruments craped and their
drums muffled. The cavalry formed on the lawn
on either side of the main entrance, and the Artil-
lery limbered up near the front gate. As the royal
personages passed into the house they were received
with the royal salute. As the Queen, accompany.
ied by the Princess of Wales, entered the Empress'
boudoir, the boom of the first gun was heard, while
the bands commenced to play the "Dead March in
Saul." The procession then emerged from the gates
in the following order:-First came the troop of the
Irish Lancers, with lances in trail; then the Ca-
dets, with rifles reversed; then the band of the
Royal Artillery, playing the solemn march with
splendid effect. Then followed the clergy bearing
the crucifix and the incense; then the Right Rev
Bishop Daniells, of Southwark, supported by two
haplains. Then came the coffin, on the six-horse
gun carriage which had borne it from Woolwich to
The Procession and the Pallbearers.-The tricolor
if France enfolded the coffin, and on the lid rested
splendid cross of camelias, violets and heartsease.
'wo gunners of the Artillery held the immense
wreath sent by Her Majesty the Queen.
The pallbearers were :-
The Prince of Wales.
The Duke of Edinburgh.
The Duke of Connaught.
The Duke of Cambridge.
The Prince of Monaco.
The Crown Prince of Sweden.
The chief mourners were Prince Jerome Napole-
n and his two sons, Princes Victor and Louis.
Then came the dead Prince's favorite horse, "Stag,"
ed by a groom named Brown. The horse was
draped in black netting, bearing the imperial cypher
'N." worked in silver. This was the horse ridden
by the Prince on the day when he met his death in
Zululand. Then followed Uhlmann, the Prince's
confidential servant, and Lomas, the Prince's Eng-
lish soldier servant, who, when the body was found
had knelt and wept like a child, then the Prince's
valet, Gamble, a Scotchman.
Following the Coffin.-Among those following the
coffin were:-Princes Lucien and Charles Bona-
parte, Joachim and Louis Murat, the Duke de la
Moscova, a son of Marshal Ney; the Dukes of Pa-
dua and Mouchy, M. Paul de Cassagnac, Baron
Haussman and young Conneau, the dead Prince's
playmate, Maitre Laud Fleury, and many others.
The procession was closed by horse artillery and
lancers. Her Majesty the Queen witnessed the pro-
cession, profoundly moved, from a little black
draped pavilion that had been erected on the
grounds. Thus with slow, lingering steps the
whole procession traversed the distance between
Camden House and the Church amid the demon-
strations of profound respect, sympathy and sorrow,
the crash of bands and the roar of the minute guns.
St. Mary's Church.-The churchyard and the cha-
pel of St. Mary was crowded hours before the
time of the ceremony. The Duke of Sutherland
was among the earliest to arrive. The Countess
Poniatowski, Mme. Canrobert, the Duchess of Man.
chester and the Marchioness of Londonderry came
next. Then followed the Ambassador of Germany,
paying the last tribute to the cause upon whose
ruins the Empire was erected. The Duke of Frias,
the Special Envoy from Spain, and the French
Ambassador were absent. The whole chapel was
heavily draped in black. It was in complete
darkness, save for the yellow candles at the cata-
falque, the altar and at the Emperor's tomb. Just
outside the sanctuary were three priedieux draped
in black and empty, belonging to three unfortunate
and illustrious worshippers, of whom one only-the
weakest-remains. Presently a hush announced'
the entry of the Princess of Wales, in deep mourn-
ing. She was hardly able to conceal her emotion
as she was led to a seat at the epistle side of the
altar, where she knelt in prayer.
Arrival of the Coffin.-Soon the distant strains of
the Dead March" announced the approach of the
cort6ge. A detachment of lancers was leading,
followed by the cadets at slow march, who opened
ranks on entering the gates and formed on either
side of the path. The Bishop of Southwark re-
ceived the coffin at the gate. The Duke of Cam-
bridge superintended the dismounting of the coffin,
giving orders to the officers of artillery who bore
the body within the church. This is an incident
without precedent in the history of the British army.
The Bishop having sprinkled the coffin, the choir be.-
gan in subdued tones to chant the De Profundis."
The English Princes followed. Then came the tall
form and Napoleonic face of Prince Napoleon, who
evidently tried to look serious. Then was wit-
nessed one of the most touching scenes in the pro-.
cession. Uhlmann, the Prince's Alsatian valet,
entered weeping, heading the imperial household.
Then followed Princes Lucien and Charles, and
Roland, the son of the fire-eater, Pierre, and
Prince Murat; then MM. Rouher, Benedetti, head-
ing Councillors, Senators and Deputies of the em-
pire, with a solitary lady, Princess Mathilde, in
their midst. Then succeeded a brilliant throng of
British officers. As the procession entered the
De Profundis" was played on the harmonium, a
gift of the Prince of Wales to the little church.
The singers in the choir consisted of a few boys
from the Cathedral of St. George and a solitary
singer permanently attached to the little church.
As the coffin was reverently laid on the catafalque
all knelt, the Princess of Wales and the Princess
Mathilde sobbing audibly.
A Solemn Scene.-On one side of the catafalque
were ranged the English princes, one Bonaparte on
the other, and a crowd of officers in glittering uni-
form behind. All else was deep, dense black. The
solemn requiem wyas then commenced to the plain,
plaintive Gregorian chant, "Requiem .Eternam,"
"Kyrie" and "Dies Ire." Then the Bishop of
Southwark intoned the solemn preface, "Vere
Dignum" with magnificent voice. It was an ex-
traordinary sight, the princes of Protestant England
kneeling, with bowed heads so reverently as the
Bishop raised the Host and the chalice, the little
belfry tolling, telling the crowds without of the
solemn ceremonies within. The Baroness de Ca-
ter's daughter, Mmine. Lablache, sang the "Ave
Maria" ofSaint-Saens. Then, doffing the chasuble
and donning the cope, the Bishop and the attend-
ant clergy stood at the head of the catafalque. Mmine.
Goddard then intoned the "Miserere." The Bish-
op, walking around the bier, pronouncing the name
of the Prince, gave the absolution. The sobbing
of the ladies here broke out afresh. Suddenly three
volleys of musketry burst on the ear, each followed
by the roll of muffled drums, the cadets thus rend-
ering tribute to their warrior comrade. The rite
ended, those who had loved the dead Prince filed
past the coffin, sprinkling holy water, strewing
flowers and whispering prayers. The Princess of
Wales deposited a wreath before the bier. She was
then gently led away by her husband.
Rev. Mr. Beecher concluded a sermon on the
funeral of the Prince Imperial, at Plymouth Church,
Brooklyn, N. Y., on the 13th inst., as follows:'-
The Widow's Grief.-At Chiselhurst the central
figure was not Victoria, the Queen and Empress ;
it was Eugenie. Her youth was spent in Spain,
brilliant and beautiful. By unexpected develope-
ments she was transferred by the Emperor to the
most brilliant court in the world. Then suddenly
the scene shifts and from the very top of power she
is a refugee; not a wanderer, but a guest in Great
Britain; and, now a widowed mother, in all her
glory she was not so great as she is to-day in her
desolation. They gather about her from the Court
of Great Britain-the noble Queen who has known
the sorrow of the heart, and whose heart is easily
opened in sympathy and sorrow to others, and all
her royal sons and daughters-in-law. This poor
uncrowned woman left upon the kindness of a for-
eign nation-they made procession from the throne
and the palaces to the doors of her humble dwell-
ing ; they wept with her; they followed her son to
the grave, and they made her weep there, too.
There are no pearls, or necklaces, or tiaras that are
of such priceless value as the tears that were shed
by her and hers. Yet, sublime in her grief, and
now, by this last trial of death, made a citizen
of the world in the relation of every heart, she
stands today in her deep desolation and grief not
one step higher than the 10,000 other mothers who
have broken their hearts over the cradle, and is
not removed a hair's breath from 10,000 other
widowed mothers who are more pitable and les
able to speak their sorrows.

privilege, was received with loud and prolonged
cheers from the liberal benches.
TESTIMONIAL TO A FELLOW WORKMAN.
A very pleasing incident took place at the School
Room, Ireland Island, on Saturday evening, 19th
instant, where the Artisans of the shipwright de-
partment of the Naval Establishment, assembled to
present to Mr. [iAM FOOKES (shipwright), a
testimonial, consisting of a Binocular Field Glass,
a Silver-mounted Malacca Walking Cane, with a
suitable inscription engraved on the mounting, and
a pair of Gold-framed Eye-glasses, as an out-
ward mark of esteem and respect for their fel-
low workmate, who is to retire from the service on
superannuation allowance, after serving his country
faithfully in many parts of the world for the past
35 years. The chair was taken by G. F. Newton,
Esqr., the acting Constructor, who in a few appro.
private and well chosen words, presented the testi-
monial, which was duly acknowledged by Fookes.
Mr. W. Fookes' first service was in H. M. S.
Collingwood from June 1844 to July 1848, on the
Pacific station; on paying off served in H. M.
Dockyard, Portsmouth, until the expedition to the
Arctic regions fitted out in April 1850 in search of
Sir John Franklin, when Fookes volunteered to go
as Carpenter's Mate of H. M. S. Assistance, and
withstood the rigours of that inhospitable climate
admirably. On the return of the expedition. in
October 1851 he again served in Portsmouth ard,
doing duty as Leading-man of Shipwrights for
some years. In 1862, when the European China
expedition was about to fit out for the suppression
of pirates in Chinese waters, Fookes volunteered to
go as Carpenter of one of the ships; was accepted,
and inspected the building of two ships, one built
by Messrs. Laird, Birkenhead, the other by Mr.
White at Cowes, Isle of Wight, England. After
the fleet arrived in China some altercation took
place, causing the dissolution of the expedition in
1864 when he returned to Portsmouth Yard, serving
there as a shipwright until 1869. When a ship-
wright diver was required for Bermuda Yard,
Fookes again volunteered and was accepted, arriv.
ing in H.M.S. Espoir. Having served here for the
past ten years, from which place he goes to Eng.
land, carrying with him the best wishes and ree.
pect of his officers and fellow workmen.

Clay is also moulded and flavoured with an essence
so as to repireent coffee. Adulteration, indeed, is
bAing so extensively practised that there are now
several mills engaged in grinding white stone into
powder for purposes of adulteration. At some of
these mills three grades are ground to represent
soda, sugar and flour. Whiskey is found to be
mixed with creosote, salts of copper, alum, and
other injurious substances; while some of the
so-called European wines are manufactured in the
United States, shipped to Europe, and then re-
shipped and sold as the pure juice of the grape.
Even drugs and medicines fare no better, and
serious consequences often ensue to patients in con-
sequence of the uncertainty of the strength of the
medicines ordered for them. In short, almost all
the English methods of sophistication exposed by
Dr. Hassall in the Lancet many years ago appear
to be at present flourishing on the other side of the
A tlantic.-Pa'l Alall Gazette, Jane 21.
A correspondent at Alexandria writes to us ati
follows:-The following incident has been related
to me by an eye-witness. During the recent stay
of the English squadron in the Pihmus the usual
leave was given to the sailors. Three of these were
drinking in a wine-shop when a party of men be-
longing to some Russian vessels of war entered,
and taking the bottle from before them emptied the
contents and replaced it on the table. As may be
supposed, this was not calculated to promote peace-
fulness of spirit, and, seeing the Russians were in
the proportion of twenty to the three Englishmen,
one of the latter, a boatwain's mate, stepped to the
door and piped "Liberty men to muster." In a
moment his shipmates swarmed about him; but,
Jack scorning anything but fair fighting, only suf.
ficient were told off to make even numbers with the
Russians. Accordingly they went in man for man
to clear out the aggressors. After a somewhat free
fight, in which chairs and tables were alike brought
into requisition, this was accomplished. Prodigies
of valour, my informant tells me, were performed,
especially by a petty officer of one of the English
ironclads, who distinguished himself by the rapid-
ity with which he floored one antagonist after ano-
ther. He cheerfully declined all assistance, and in
the intervals between his blows addressed the Rus-
sians with Come on, you beggars! we've been
waiting for you for two years." The worst, how.
ever, was to come; for some French sailors arriving
just as the defeated Muscovites were ejected, claim-
ed the right to give a few finishing touches to the
work of the English sailors. The result was that
the Russians reached their ships in a somewhat
sorry plight; and it is not surprising that the Rus-
sian captain should have afterwards suggested to
the senior British Officer the advisibility of select-
ing a different day in future for giving leave to
their respective ships' companies.
Army lheserves.--Genl. Shute, M.P., who served
throughout the Crimean War, and commanded the
Inniskillin and 4th Dragoon Guards for some years,
intends to propose, from his seat in the House of
Commons, "That the system established by Lord
Caidwell in 1871, with the view of forming a re-
set ve, has resulted in rendering the once fine bat-
talions of the English army utterly inefficient for
the fr(qucnt minor emergencies on which their ser-
vices are required ; and to suggest that any commit-
tee formed to inquire into this subject shall be
ctfiefly composed of general and field officers who
have commanded regiments, to the exclusions of
those who have risen in the service by staff brevets,
and of ordinance officers with little or no practical
experience in regimental organization."
The .Russian ^'' O, Gazette of yesterday, June 22,
states that the number of men levied for the conscrip-
tion for 1879 for the Russian army, navy, and the
frontier guard is 218,000.
A BRITISH STEAMER HELD FOR DEBT.
BAurIPou, Md., July 2.-A writ was served on
Monday, by a deputy sheriff of Baltimore county,
on the British iron steamer Glenlogan on her way
to Baltimore, from Rio, with coffee for the firm of
Alexander Brown & Sons. A mortgage is held on
the steamship by Tburston W. Cook, of Liverpool,
England, for 29,000. The claim of Mr. Cook was
sent to Alexander Brown & Sons for collection and
their counsel obtained the writ under which she is
held at Spear's wharf in this city. The matter will
be heard in the Circuit Court of Baltimore county
at the September term. An attachment on a war.
rant issued some days ago by the City Court of
Baltimore city to Phelps, Stokes & Co., of New
York, against the owners of the steamer for $13,475,
was served by Sheriff Snowden yesterday. Another
attachment on a warrant was issued by the City
Court yesterday to the Bank of British North Ame-
rica for $15,860, but has not yet been served.
The cargo is owned by Messrs. Alexander Brown
& Sons, and is not affected by the seizure of the
Letters from Zanzibar up to the 2nd instant, report
the final start of Mr, Keith Johnstone and party from
1TAr-SalAm on the 18th Mlay; and, as nothing had
been heard of them since, it is inferred that they are
getting on well. The explorers will pass tiup the
valley of the Lufigi and its affluents to Ubena, and
thence to Nyassa and Tanganyka. The four ele-
phants presented to the King of the Belgians by the
indianr Government had arrived safely, and were
landed under Dr. Kirk's personal supervision near
Dar-Saliam, to which place they will march, and there
remain until Mr. Carter, who is in charge of them,
gets his party ready. They will then be taken about
250 miles inland to test their powers, and if this trial
succeeds they will be marched back to take up loads.
Mr. Stanley had examined the River Lufigi in two
boats, but turned back after ascending about forty
miles, his coal having run out and no wood was to be
got on the banks, the river being flooded. At the
point where he left the Lufigi it was still open in front.
He has since gone north to visit Pangani, Mombasa,
Lama, Brava, and Mukdishu, and to examine the
River Zuba. Hie took sixty-four men with him from
Zanzibar, but whether the party returns thither or
not is kept a profound secret, as are the ultimate
objects of the expedition, albeit the general impres-
sion is that Mr. Stanley has commercial views, and
is acting as agent to a foreign company. The Sultan
has given him letters of recommendation to his gov-
vernors on the coast, but even his Highness is igno-
rant of the future plans of the party. When asked
for men to accompany Mr. Stanley he told him that
he was at full liberty to engage as many free men as
lie required who were willing to go with him.
The U. S. steamer G. S. Blake, under the com-
mand of Capt. Bartlett, is now engaged on a scien-
tific cruise through the West Indian Islands, with
Prof. Agassiz as chief of the scientific staff. A series
of soundings is being taken throughout the course
between the various islands, and dredgings are made
at depths exceeding 100 fathoms, in order to obtain
specimens of the sea-bottom and records of the tem-
perature. The soundings are taken by means of
Capt. Sigsbee's patent apparatus, in which fine piano
wire takes the place of rope, 400 fathoms of wire
being kept op each reel, the whole of which can be
hauled in in 80 seconds. In dredging, a machine
capable of lifting 25 tons is employed. The greatest
depth of water between the islands was found between
St. Thomas and Santa Cruz, where 2,700 fathoms
was measured. The bottom here is said to be ex-
ceedingly rocky, and from the greatest depth a piece
of rock almost square, weighing 200 Ibs., was brought
up. of peculiar formation. The main route of the
expedition extends from Key West to Cuba, Jamaica,
San Domingo, St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands, and
the whole of the Leeward and Windward Islands,
down to Trinidad, and thence to Barbadoes. This
field has been almost unexplored, and a valuable col-
lection of specimens will no doubt be made, besides
which the more important result will be attained of
an accurate survey of the inter-insular seas.-Times
Captain Warren, R. N., lately demonstrated at St.
George's Swimming Baths, Belgravia, that every
person-man, woman, or child-can be secured from
the dangers of drowning by an appliance the cost of
which can be reckoned in pence. The apparatus
sufficient to save an adult's life on the water will
weigh probably an ounce, and a young man, to show
that a soldier crossing a stream need not do so in
danger of such a calamity as that which recently be-
fell our troops, crossed the bath again and again with
a rifle in his hand, weighed down with his clothes,
but fully and thoroughly supported. The "life,-
saver" in this case was about the size of a sheep's
I bladder. The small apparatus is made of different
Material, in some cases of bladders, with a small and
ingeniously contrived valve about equal in weight to
a halfpenny. The covering can be filled with wind
in a moment by pressing the valve against the teeth
and blowing through it, and the wind itself closes
the valve. There is no screw to be unfastened, but
it is all in readiness. Fitted as the lining of a hat,
or fez, or helmet, the valve can take the place of
i the ventilating hole ready to be filled in a moment.
Capt. Warren has also designed buoys which can be
so built into the lower part of the~mast or funnel of
Ordinary ships, or to the turret of a man-of-war, as
not to take away from the deck space, while the
whole can be released in a moment, giving a large
number of buoys, each capable of supporting 2 men.
The buoys, when built in would add only 9 in. to the
diameter of a mast or turret, and would give the
means at once of supporting 350 men in the water.
A lecture was delivered yesterday afternoon at
the United Service Institution on The Defence of
Capitals," by Colonel Nugent, R.E., who advo-
cated the construction of defensive works for the
purpose of rendering London secure against attack.
The consequences of even a temporary occupation
of London by an enemy would, the lecturer con-
tended, be so inconceivably disastrous to the whole
of England, that the most ordinary prudence dic-
tates that no precaution should be neglected which
will contribute to render such a catastrophe impos-
sible. The navy, he admitted, must ever be Eng-
land's first line of defence, but it would be unwise
to trust to our fleets alone to secure us against
the consequences of a successful invasion. There is
a long stretch of unprotected coast line between
Portsmouth and the Wash, from any point on
which an advance upon London would be easy if
once an expeditionary force were disembarked.
Such an army as we could collect, consisting of
merely a nucleus of regular troops and mostly of
militia and volunteers, would, Colonel Nugent
believes, be utterly unable to oppose in the open
field such a force as might be landed on our shores.
Aided by fortifications, however, our home army
would be well able to defend London. In time of
war, again our fleets would be required to protect
our commerce, to engage or blockade our enemy's
squadrons, and so on, and they would unavoidably
be terribly crippled in the execution of these and
other duties which would devolve upon them if
they felt that their short absence from certain
points might be followed by the virtually unop-
posed entrance of the enemy's forces into the capital
j of England. The cost of constructing the works
necessary to render London secure against attack
would, Colonel Nugent estimates, amount to some
5,000,000; but this sum, he maintains, would,
after all, be a trifling premium to pay for the secu-
rity of our capital the centre of English commerce.-
Pall Mall Gazette, June 21.
NEWFOUNDLAND NEWS.-The continued cold weather
is seriously injuring the crops. Turnips have required
a second sowing. Potatoes in some instances are
rotting in the ground, and will have to be resown.
Grass is in good condition and an abundant hay crop
is expected-The news from all the bays to the North
is discouraging as to the results on the caplin. Fish
is plenty and in enormous schools in the deep water,
but cold and boisterous weather is the general com-
plaint. On the Southern Shore the cod seines and cod
bags have done well-the hook and line and the bul.
tows badly. Renews, Fermeuse, Ferryland, and
Ml obile are well reported of for seines, &c. The intel-
l*oence from St. Mary's Bay is of the most cheerful
character and promises the best fishery seen for years.
If it is true, as stated, that Major Cavagnari, Ben-
gal Staff Corps, is to be created a K.C.S.I., it will be
admitted on all sides that the honour has been fairly
earned. From the outbreak of the Afghan campaign,
Major Cavagnari's name has been ever before the
public. And if accounts from the front may be relied
upon, no man has worked harder, has had greater
influence with the native tribes, or done more to bring
the war to a happy termination, than this most trust-
worthy political official. His advancement in the
Service has been rapid, but a man who combines the
qualifications of Major Cavagnari, and who is equally
good diplomacy, and as a leader of men in face of an
enemy, is bound to make progress in such a country
as India, where there are so many openings for those
who possess the ability to win the confidence and re-
spect of the native princes, as Major Cavagnari has

DEATH OF THE PRINCE IMPERIAL.
LIEUTENANT CAREY'S STORY.
Shortly given, the report of Lieutenant Carey, who
accompanied the Prince Imperial on the reconnois-
sance which led to his death, is as follows:-" Having
learned that His Imperial Highness would proceed on
June 1 to reconnoitre the country in advance of the
column and choose a site for the camp of the following
day, I suggested that as I had already ridden over the
same ground I should accompany him. My request
was granted ; but at the same time Colonel Harrison,
Acting Quartermaster General stated that I was not in
any way to interfere with the Prince, as he wished him
to have the entire credit of choosing the camp. Shortly
before starting I found that no escort was prepared and
applied to the Brigade Major of Cavalry. I received
the necessary orders and at a quarter past nine o'clock
six men of Captain Bettington's Horse paraded before
headquarters. With these and a friendly Zulu, pro-
vided by the Hon. Mr. Drummond, we started. Six
Basutos of Captain Shepstone's corps were also unde.x
orders to proceed with us, and before crossing the
Blood River, I sent on to him to ask for them. The
messenger returned to say that they woul,1 meet us on
the ridge between the Incenzi and Itelezi Hills. I
again sent the man with orders to bring the escort
back with him. On our right and left flanks I saw
large bodies of basutos scouting. Arrived upon the
ridge we dismounted, wishing to fix the position of
some hills with our compasses. Colonel Harrison then
rode up and told us that General Marshall's cavalry
was coming up. When he had left I sii.ested to the
Prince to wait for the remainder of the escort. Oh,
no; we are quite strong enough.' At a mile and a
half we ascended a comrmandingr and rocky range of
hills bevon. Ilyotoz '-, :". I proposed that we should
here off-saddle, but the Prince said that he pr f. Io
to '+E-saddle near the river. We remained for half an
hour sketching and surveying the country with our
telescopes. Fe. '.: no one we 0 '.,.c.,l,'d to a iraal in
a valley below and .-. 1 '.-l. No precautions were
taken, as no Z'lus were expected to be in the neigh-
borhood. The Prince was hiredd and laid down beside
a hut. The men made coffee, and I reconnoitred with
my telescope. At twenty-five minutes to four I sug-
gested s;l.LI:.; up. HIlis Imperial Highness said,
SWait another ten minutes,' but in fve minutes gave
me the necessary order. I repeated it and then west
to fetch my horse from lhe mealie fields. I had sad-
dled and mounted on the home u,,: ot the kraal when
T heard His Imperial Highness give the order, Pre-
pare to mount.' I looked round and saw his foot in
the stirrup. At the same time I said, 'Mount,' and
as the men vaulted into the saddles I saw the black
faces of Zulus, about twenty yards off, rushing toward
us through the mealie fields. They shouted and fired
upon us as we rode off. I thought that all were
mounted, and, knowing that the men's carbines were
unloaded, I judged it better to clear the long grass be-
fore making a stand. Knowing from experience the
bad shooting of the Zulus I did not expect that any
one was injured. I therefore shouted as we neared
the donga, 'We must form upon the other side. See
to the retreat of every one.' On looking back I saw
one party following us, while another on our left was
attempting to cut off our retreat across the ridge.
Meanwhile we were under a heavy fire, and after we
had crossed the donga, a man said to me, I fear the
Prince is killed, sir.' I paused, looked back, and see-
ing the Prince's horse galloping on the other side of
the donga, asked if it was any use returning. The
Zulus had already passed over the ground where he
must have fallen, and he pointed out the men creeping
round our left. I paused for our men to come up and
then galloped on to find a drift over the Tombocto
LONDOx, JULY, 10.--In the House of L[ordg on
Tuesday night the government's Irish UTiveinity bill,
introduced oy the Lord C'.a.?c,:.-lor, Lord Cairns, on
the 30tb of June, was read a second time. The de-
bate tended to show that the government may here-
after consent to additions to the bill tending to satisfy
the claims of the Irish Catholics in regard to endow-
ments. Thus Lord Cairns, while still opposing the
direct endowment of denominational institutions,
pointed out that the University of London received
some thousands yearly for the purpose of rewarding
those who pass an examination which is open to all
comers. He said he was quite sure if the Senate of
the proposed Irish University were to come Parliament
and say that in order to advance education, it would
be advisable to offer exhibitions and rewards, no ob-
jection would be taken on denominational grounds.
The Times considers that this a plain intimation to the
Catholics to get their university first and ask for oney
afterward. This opens a prospect of the settlement. -f
the university question on the lines of the Interm
ate Education act passed last year. Both parties seyn
agreed to the practicability and justice of such a st-
tlement. Further delay, therefore, would be strange
POSSIBILITIES. OF SUCCESS.
[From the Norwich (Conn.) Bulletin, July 10.]
The Jeannette sailed this week from San Francisco
for the Polar regions. This vessel is small, but ad-
mirably adapted to the work before her, manned by
a crew selected with particular care and reference to
the task assigned them, and provided most amply
with all the supplies which the latest experience and
widest knowledge in that department of discovery
could suggest. The latest voyage in the Arctic re-
gions which has possessed world-wide interest is
that of Professor Nordenskjold, who sailed from
Hammerfest, on the north coast of Norway, to
Bearing Strait, nearly half way around the earth:
