Five-fathom Hole on Friday the 25th instant, from
Port-au-Prince bound to Havre, in want of medical
assistance, having two cases of fever on board (sup-
posed to be yellow fever), having also lost one man
before leaving port, and the surgeon of the ship
having died from the same fever on the 23rd inst.
Having obtained some medicines and advice from
the Health Officer for the East End, proceeded on
her voyage the same afternoon.
The Swedish Brig Helois, Captain Landergren
also arrived on same day in Murray's Anchorage,
from Wihnington, North Carolina, which ,.-,rt she
''left on the 15th instant, bound to Rio. The Capt.
reports two men taken sick of fever the night she
left, one of whom died on the 22nd inst., on which
day four others of the crew were taken down with
tie same disease, and another on the day of her
arrival here. The vessel is still in Murray's An-
chorage in strict quarantine, and last evening the
men were all improving.

THE VALUE OF SOME CLEAN BILLS OF
HEALTH.
The following has been taken from the New
York Herald of the 11th July, 1879:-
WASHINGTON, July 10th, 1879.
Dr. Hamilton, the Supervising Surgeon-Gene-
ral of the Marine Hlospital Service, has received
advices from Port-au-': iu .. that yellow fever has
so far abated that clean bills of health are now
being issued. No clean bills have been issued be-
fore for three months."
[The above, in connexion with the recent visit of
a steamer the WesltIndian, having had some deaths
on board from Port-au-Prince, shews that some
clean bills of health are anything but reliable.]-Ed.

1 .:.yal .. for Officers' Daughters at Bath
was i,.ii. .h,! a good many years since for the pur-
pose of providing an almost gratuitous, yet thorough-
ly sound and useful education, for the Orphan
Daughters of Officers whose fathers had died leav-
ing their families in comparatively reduced circum-
stances.-Of such families there are at all times a
considerable number, for the chances of battle and
the more insidious yqt almost equally fatal perils
of tropical service, leave many widows and orphans
-and, besides, there is a numerous class of deser-
ving officers, who have risen from the ranks by dis-
tinguished merit and who generally are married,
and almost invariably have little to support them
beyond their military pay, and these when they die
leave families whose daughters become most de-
serving and eligible candidates for admission to the
Royal Bath school.
To these poor orphan girls the Royal Bath School
affords all the advantages of a select Boarding
School for young ladies for the nominal charge of
12 a year, and yet the board and lodging provid-
ed is equal and the tuition and training is in some
respects superior to that given in many private
schools that charge 100 and upwards a year.
The school occupies a large and conveniently ar-
ranged collegiate building situated at the outskirts
of the town of Bath and surrounded by its own
private grounds and gardens, and there the young
ladies enjoy all the advantages of privacy and of
breathing a fine country air combined with the faci-
lities for obtaining the higher kind of tuition which
is afforded by the close proximity of a large and
flourishing city.
As may readily be supposed, these advantages of
the Royal Bath School have been fully appreciated
by the numerous class for whose benefit it has been
founded. The number of candidates pressing for
admission has always been greatly in excess of that
which the limited income of the institution would
have sufficed to support, and as the committee of
management, yielding to the pressure of urgent
cases, gradually increased the number of inmates
beyond what the resources at their command would
fully justify, the school began to run into debt.
As a means of improving the financial position
of the establishment it was then proposed to admit
into the school a second class of officers' daughters,
not necessarily orphans, whose families could afford
to pay the full cost and even something over the
full cost of their board and lodging and tuition.
The payment to be made by this new class of offi-
cers' daughters was fixed at 80 a year, and as the
school had become very popular and many of the
young ladies who had been educated in it had sub.
sequently shone as ornaments in society, the com-
mittee had no difficulty in finding a number of officers
who were willing to send their daughters there at
the higher rate. The presence of these paying
pupils has been a great help to the school and has
enabled the committee to extend the advantages of
the orphan class to an increased number of pupils.
In the school itself, however, no difference or dis-
tinction of any kind is made between the different
classes of pupils ; all share the same board ; all are
afforded the same facilities for tuition; and all are
treated alike in every way ;-the pupils indeed have
no means of knowing who pay 86 and who pay
only 12 a year. By this judicious arrangement
all jealousy or rivalry between the two classes is
avoided.
These new arrangements have done much to
promote the prosperity of the Royal Bath School,
but nevertheless so great has been the pressure put
upon the committee of management on behalf of
poor orphan girls seeking for admission to the or-
phan class, that they have been unable to keep
their doors sufficiently closed and the consequence
has been that for some time past the school has once
more been running into debt. At a meeting lately
held in London and presided over by His Royal High -
ness the Duke of Cambridge, K.G., it was stated
that the debt amounted to 1,400, and as it was
thought probable that the war now waging in
South Africa, by creating additional numbers of
widows and orphans, would bring increased num-
bers of candidates applying for admission, it was
determined to make an appeal to all the friends of
the institution and ask them to come forward in its
support. Maj.-Genl. Sir John Lefroy, K.C.M.G.,
late Governor of these Islands, who is President of
the Committee of Management of the Royal Bath
School, has written to ask his friends here to help
him in his efforts to restore the prosperity of the
establishment. It is to be hoped his appeal will
be successful.
The present entertainment given by the officers
and ladies of the garrison promises, from its great
popularity, to provide a handsome contribution toc
the Funds of the School. The principal piece call-
ed -" Ours has been specially chosen as likely toc

A WELLWISHER TO THE ROYAL BATH SCHOOL.

A NEW BELL AT ST. MARK's CHURCH, SMITH's.-
A large and excellent Bell, the gift of Mr..and
Mrs. W. Whitn'y, was placed in the tower of St.
Mark's Church, Smith's, on the 19th instant. The
Bell is from the Foundry of Messrs. Meneely & Co,,
Troy, New York, the oldest and best-known foun-
dry in the United States, and is the largest in Ber-
muda, being 905 lbs, in weight. It is very full,
sweet and pure in tone, and, when rung, fills the
air far and wide with a solemn music that reminds
one of other lands. St. Mark's is a very pretty
Church, and, when, the contemplated improvements
are completed, will be one of the finest of our sa-
cred edifices.

On Wednesday afternoon last, the Master of the
New York Mail Steamer Bermuda, exhibited in
Hamilton Harbour, Captain Boyton's "life saving
dress," and its manner of use. Assisted, he was
dressed in about ten minutes, and then looking very
much like a man dressed to defy the coldest wea-
ther in Canada, and carrying a light paddle, he
proceeded to the ferry steps, opposite the establish-
ment of Henry Darrell, Esqr., and plunged over-
board. He paddled about his ship for some time,
and politely declined the proffered escort of a row
boat; then went to White's Island opposite, on the
shores of which were a lot of-juvenile pleasure
seekers who, on his approach ran away. The re-
turn and landing were of course consequences.
The dress is of light India Rubber and to a question
whether the exertion of paddling was fatiguing he
answered that the cool temperature of the water is
so easily felt by the wearer of the dress, that instead
of fatigue a delightful sensation of inviting coolness
exists.

THE YELLOW FEVER.
Washington, July 16. Congressman Case
Young, of the Memphis District, says that his pri-
vate advices confirm the news of the complete sub-
sidence of the Yellow Fever. He came here to of.
fer his service to the National Health Board an
also to ask and advise the government authorities
to send tents and rations to Memphis in case the
yellow fever outbreak should prove serious and
violent.
Mr. Young remained in the plague stricken re-
gion throughout the epidemic last year and give
it as his judgment from his experience at that time
tifat the protest remedial expedient to be applied
in case of an epidemic is to transfer as many peo-
ple as possible to outdoor colonies in tents. The
employment of this plan saved many lives in th
Mississippi Valley last year.


DEATH OF SIR ALEXANDER TAYLOR.-The death
is announced of Sir Alexander Taylor, M.D., tb
eminent medical practitioner, at Pan, Basses Pyre-
nees, France. He had been on a visit to England,
and his death took place at Gayton Crescent, Hamp.
stead, London, on the 18th instant. Sir Alexander
Taylor was well known as a native of the county of
Banff, having been born in New Buckle, parish of
Rathven. Born in the end of last century, he was
the fifth son of the late William Taylor, shipowner
and merchant in New Buckie, by his wife, Jane
Morrison. When quite a youth Alexander Taylor
was taken to Elgin by his uncle, the late William
Morrison, tobacconist, and by that' gentleman wa
adopted as his son. Educated at the Elgin Aca.
demy, he first of becoming a lawyer, and
was for some time in offices in Elgin and Edinburgh
.but, disliking the law, he turned his attention td
medicine and completed his medical curriculum al
Edinburgh, at which University he took his degrees.
Going next to London he enjoyed there the friend
ship of another Banffshire man, the late Sir Jame
Clark. On Sir DeLacy Evan.s proceeding to Spai!
with the troops raised in this country for service in
the Peninsular, Dr. Taylor accompanied the legion.
Thereafter be settled in Pau, where the remainder o
his life was passed in the enjoyment of a lucrative
practice. In 1865, the Emperor of the Frene
caused an unofficial application to be made through
the French Ambassador in London for some honou
to be bestowed upon Dr. Taylor in recognition o
services rendered to his countrymen at Pau. Th
Queen, in consequence, bestowed upon him th
honour of Knighthood. Sir Alxeander was th
author of a volume, published in 1842, on the cura.
tive influence of the climate of Pau, and of the mi
neral waters of the Pyrenees on disease. The wor
has passed through several editions. The death o

T< ECU'nONS.
Coide frcm tHe Tendon k~~ay, 2 9
Lord H .on is not:...*;..i with the way in
which the Act of 1' fx:;!- that executions are to
take place ; .- prison, has been ... cut. re-
cently at T- ; He complains that on May 26,
when an uI.:. ; woman was there executed, no re-
porters and no one, indeed, except the officials of the
piinon, c,..i', obtain =ion to be present. This,
he thinks, is at. variance with the the promises made
when the Act of 1868 was nader 'i-.-,i *.. Exe-
cutions, i was then agreed, were no ik .. to be
made public spectacles, but they were to be public
still in what Lord Houghton terms "the best sense
of the -. Power was :...: d on the High
Sl:.-''',' nd the visiting .ii!?. to admit such per-
sons as they might ..h:&v-; and the assumption,
therefore, which Lord Houghton makes is that t,-,-
were f:t. -..', to exercise it. By the new Prisons
Act the matter has now passed practically into the
hands of the high Sheriff of the county alone. This
functionary -i;.' .,"*l his discretion at Taunton,
properly as Earl Beauchamp thinks, c,: m. ,..1:I
as Earl Fortescue adds, by refusing ..r, i-'i::. to
oi-.d'ei.: of every class. No one was :o;,. ed to
;i- his own morbid curiosity or to pander to
the curiosity of his -eighbot'r- as to the exact de-
tails of what was done within the Taunton prison
" The correctness of Lord HIou.-,hi 's state-
ment may be taken as admitted, but it is not easy
to discover the precise danger ,.;i:n. which Lord
f'o,3:i. 1'0 wishes to guard. Intramural executi-
ons have, he declares, been successful hitherto-
whatever such a .h.;'P-e may mean. Their success
is ''.: ,''*', by the new rule followed at ,.Taunon,
1.! not unlikely to be )i,':o',!:;:',l elsewhere, too.
Not in T-.-; ..1 alone, but on the other aide of the
- ;han',,,c the effect of this on the ;.;.i;c mind is
pronounced likely to be unfavourable. "'hat
Lord Houghton fears is, we suppose, that execu-
tions from which the outside -"." is h.- 'h,7 ex-
cluded are i,;7,ir'v-.A of some of their .;--'.:r safe-
guardF. '-ea :he black 1I..- is the
spectators may refuse to believe that j, r executi-
on has taken *' '! at all; or may, on the other
hand, give c. -: to their :.. : by filling in all sorts
of horrible details which no one will be able to
ror' .l A notion such as this seems, however,
to 1' '' or forgetfullness on
.- :'s part as to what the provisions of
the Act (of 1 really are. An execution is not
and cannot be a st .':. .. .'Far between
the l:. ..-&,, and 'he -u'.i '. sheriff, the
gaoler, the. i",. and the surgeon of the -.:' .n
are by statute .:*,,.i.ed to be present, and together
with them such other of the prison as the
sheriff may .,v;.-.. i,,. upon. The surgeon is bound
to certify as to the fact of death, and the whole
1.O!; of officials present must .-. a declaration
that sentence has been duly executed on the offen-
der on whom it has been pronounced. Within
twenty-four hours ..i'f r.Vwn: ds the whole matter is
made further the subject of a regular inquest, in
which no officer or inmate of the prison is permit-
ted to serve as juryman. Here surely is sufficient-
ly ample provision for publicity, in the only sense
in which publicity, can be thought desirable. The
exclusion of L. :. I.** who !.-.'.,. strictly speaking,
no business to be present is scarcely a thing which
the decent part of the r'. iic will be induced to
consider as a wrong. If executions there must be,
the more nearly they can be made private the bet.
ter. It is enough if there is proof in each case
that the sentence of the law has been carried out
properly. This is -,Cred by the terms of the Act
itself, quite apart from the further i.,cle'.r'..uy
power in', istd, to the High Sheriff, which he can
exercise as he thinks fit, and which he would do
wisely in most cases to refuse to exercise at all.
But what is it to which Lord Houghton's question
of yesterday really points ? Does Lord Houghton
fear that a return will be demanded to the former
method of executions, and that the old sight of
eleven years, with all its shocking and degrading
incidents, will be iebt.r->i ? This, we are sure, is
what pid.c opinion in this country can never b(
brought to sanction. A mob of ruffians, eager, ex-
p.. u', k t.dtii ~t3;-, clamorous and jocular by
turns while it is kept waiting, hushed into silence
in spite of itself when the victim makes his appear.
ance, but ready with its comments even then i:
any hitch occurs in the proceedings-the whol(
scene, down to the moment when the drop falls and
the sight of what every one has come to witness is
at length enjoyed, is so horrible and so degrading
that our wonder is that it was so long tolerated
and that only eleven years have passed since i
was done away with for ever. Or is it rather
wholly opposite result which Lord Houghton ap.
pretends ? Does he suppose that the dissatisfac.
tion of the country with private executions wil
lead to a demand for the abolition of the death-
po'.;.y altogether ? This, we think, is a somewhat
v-...M, idea. Much as the question of capital]
pu=i-m'tl.1- has been debated, and numerous a
have been the objections urged against it, it haf
been on some other grounds that the dissentients
have rested their case. The result of eleven yearn
during which executions have been conducted in
private has been that the outcry against them has
very j';':,, s'::U.' diminished in force. They hav
ceased now to be the same causes of n.:e i..:' thai
they used to be, and the general sense of the country
seems accordingly to be not opposed to their con-
tinuance. The experiment of abolishing capital:
punishment has been iirdt- in several countries or
the Continent, but it can scarcely be made out thai
the results in any case have been satisfactory
The titd--ify seems to be to revert to it as often
as any special occasion occurs which may be t .'!,l'
to demand it or to justify it. Death as a punish-


ment for political cmr'..,.s was abolished in France
-in 1848. The law has remained the same since:
but there were executions after the Commune under
sentence colourably of military tribunals, but with
no other practical difference than that the con-
demned persons were shot instead of being guillo-
tined. The German Emperor has been a Sovereign
whose humane temper has impelled him to nullify
most capital sentences that have been pronounced
within his dominions. An example, however,
seemed to be required in Hodel's case, and with
Hodel accordingly the law was suffered to take its
course. Switzerland may be quoted as a further
instance to the same effect. In Switzerland, in
1874, capital punishment, which had already been
done away with in more than one of the cantons,
was absolutely prohibited in all of them. The artick
of the Constitution which enacted this was repeal-
ed last Sunday week by a general popular vote,
and each canton is now free to make its own laws
and to inflict death or to refuse to inflict it. The
force of this instance is explained away, indeed,
as far as the change made can be referred simply
to a desire for greater cantonal independence
This, however, is an account which can only be
partially accepted. The main argument which ap-
pears to have had weight with the majority was
that crimes of violence had increased very signally
since 1874 This fact was admitted in a report
presented to the National Assembly by the Federal
Council, and we cannot doubt that such an ad.
mission must have gone far to determine the result
at which the Assembly has arrived.
The question at issue in Switzerland and else-
where is very far from being a simple one. It is
not easy to db,,,vir by statistical returns in what
degree the UtaI.1 penalty is or is not deterrent. The
causes at work are too many and too C:",;ih-.. t<
be dealtwith by a reference to bare figures, the
more so .since the figures themselves are by no
means found every pointing in the same direction
The more certain appeal is to human nature anc
human feelings.


Death is eyo all pquisto n the most dreaded i
PenalLv which the law can impose. ,; infliction
of it is an unwelcome- .,"-.- 1.- to be justified only
by the c:-'-..'.. occurrence of the crimes that call
for it. If such crimes were rare, and if they could
be looked upon as mere : a2 ;.-."s of a half-lunatic
temper, it might be possible to 41' to thehumane
demand that the extrew e y.'* ,. of the law should.
not be inflicted. But while the contrary of all this
is the case, and while th e general sentiment of the .
country is known not to be outraged by the carrying-
out of the law as it stands-as long, in short, a%,
murderers exist among us, and as long as juries are-
found not to shrink from convicting them-.the case
for a change of the law is not easily to be made out.,
Private executions are a sort of compromise which,
the country seems to have accepted, and with,
which it is likely to be none the less satisfied be--
cause the rule of privacy is strictly enforced.

THURBER'S RELIABLE
CANNED GOODS.
S R REAT progress has been made within a few
X.v years in the art of Preserving Fruits, Ve-
getables, Fish and Meats in tins, and in conse-
quence the consumption has largely increased.
As yet, however, canned goods are not generally
thought to be "fresh," and some brands are not,
perhaps, entitled to be so considered. Those
,.n' !.d by us, however, are 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
name are guaranteed to he of superior quality,
and dealers are authorised to refund the purchase
price in any case where consumers have cause
for dissatisfaction. It is, therefore, to the in-
terest of both dealers and consumers to use
T'lURBER'S BRANDS.

The following Messages from His Excellency the
Governor were delivered by the Colonial Secre-
tary:-
(No. 8.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable the Legislative Council that, bya Letter dated
14th July, 1879, it has been reported to him by the
Provost Marshal General that the expenses connect-
ed with the safe custody of the condemned prisoner
Edward James Skeeters the Younger, from the date
of his sentence to the date of his execution-name-
ly for the period of one month-hbave amounted
to the sum of 40, and that the incidental expenses
connected with the execution and burial of the said
condemned prisoner have amounted to 9 9/6,
making a total expenditure of 49 9/6 for which no
provision has been made by the Legislature.
The Governor and Council thought it necessary
to provide for the safe custody of the condemned pri-
soner and to guard against any attempt at escape or
suicide during the month which elapsed between the
sentence and the execution-to direct that the con-
demned prisoner should never be left at any time
alone but that two Police Constables should always
keep watch together over him night and day. The
whole of the eighteen Parish Constables were thus
employed at various times and two other men-not
Constables-were employed for a short time, and
the total cost of this service for the eighteen Con-
stables and the two private Watchmen for one
month amounted to 40.
The Governor recommends that the Legislature
make provision by Resolve for the payment of this
expenditure.
Public Buildings, Hamilton,
22nd July, 1879.
(No. 9.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major General,
Governor and Commander. in- Chief.
The Governor has the honor to forward for the
information of the Honorable the Legislative Coun-

cil a Report, dated 18th July, 1879, with a statement
of Account for the twelve months ended 31st De-
cember, 1878, from the Trustees appointed under
the provisions of the'Savings Bank Act, No. 12 of
1874.
Public Buildings, Hamilton,
22nd July, 1879. }
(No. 10.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Major General,
Governor and C-rmmander-in.Chief.
The Governor has the honor to lay before the
Honorable the Legislative Council a copy of an Ac-
count, furnished by the Receiver General, showing
the sums of money amounting to 184 9/5 which
have been advanced from time to time from the
Powder Fund, by the authority of the Governor and
Council, for the purpose of keeping up the current
service of the Colonial Post Office during the inter-
regnum caused by the suspension of the Colonial
Postmaster General and the resignation of the
Postmaster at Hamilton.
Under ordinary circumstances the salary of the
Postmaster General which remained undrawn from
1st October 1878 to 26th May 1879, when he was
removed from the public service, and which amount-
ed to 196 8/0, would have been available to meet
these expenses, but under the peculiar circumstan-
ces of the recent Post Office Enquiry it was consid.
ered more expedient to leave the salary of the Post-
master General undrawn, and to meet the expenses
caused by his suspension by advances from the
Powder Fund, which it was presumed would be
repaid by a vote of the Legislature so soon as Par-
liament reassembled.
The Governor is informed that there only remains
a sum of 1 1/ in the Powder Fund, and he trusts
therefore that the Legislature will pass an early
Resolve making the salary of the Postmaster Gen-
eral-which remained undrawn to the amount of
196 8/-available for the repayment of the sum of
184 9/5 which was advanced from the Powder
Fund for keeping up the Post Office Service.
